That dog

won't hunt?

FWC may

put an end

to foxhunt

tradition
BY KELLI PEACOCK DUNN
News Editor
Some of Sky Scott's
earliest memories can be
traced back to the 750
acre Sandsifters Fox Pen.
Like other youngsters,
he stood by with his dad
and the other grownups
on many an afternoon,
away from television and
video games, listening
and waiting, hoping one
of his foxhounds would
come back a winner.
Now a school teacher
in Calhoun County, Scott
fears that this sport he's
come to love so dearly
will soon be a thing of the
past. As reported in last
week's edition, the
Florida Fish and Wildlife
C o n s e r v action
Commission (FWC)
voted in February to


temporarily prohibit the
chasing of foxes and coy-
otes in enclosures, while
moving forward to draft
rules guiding such enclo-
sures. An executive order
prohibiting, chasing of
foxes and coyotes within
an enclosure was issued
last week.
ISo why all the fuss?
Some say the sport is a
form of cruelty to ani-
mals, alleging mauling of
coyotes and foxes chased
during the hunts.
FWC Chairman
Rodney Barreto says he
leaned toward an out-
right-ban of the practice,
but also felt the process


should be given a chance
for review.
"I'm not sure I'll sup-
port the draft rules when
they come back," Barreto
remarks. "I don't see any
sport in the animals' hav-
ing no escape. I personal-
ly don't agree with the
practice.
But Scott, now a
board member with the
Florida State Foxhunters
Association, says those
opposed to fox' hunting
are misinformed. He
aimed to set the record
straight when he
appeared before the
FWC during their hear-
ing last month.


"When a coyote or Ibx
is released into a fox pen,
this animal is not imme-
diately pursued by a sav-
age pack of blood-thirsty
hounds as so many have
been led to believe," he
testified. "We introduce
the new game of the pen
to the dog carefully as we
introduce our pups to the
skill of tracking. A new
game animal will be freed
to familiarize itself with
it's new surroundings.
After a period -of time,
the game will be chased
at first by our pups.
Gradually, the foxes and

MAXIE WALDORFF



Is CITIZEN OF YEAR


Margie Mason Volunteerof Year,.
� - ..- - -

For decades, Maxie Waldorff has been giv-
ing of his time to help improve Calhoun County ll
and he was honored Thursday night at the
Chamber of Commerce Banquet when he was
named Citizen of the Year.
Chamber President Elam Stoltzfus noted
that, when the old airport was three feet under
water, Waldorf led the effort to relocate it to the
Industrial Park where it is today. A fearless t1'
leader, Waldorff even sky dived at age 70 dur- M
ing the grdhd opening of the new airport! Over
the years, he has secured millions in funding
for this project.
Also honored was Margie Mason who was
named Volunteer of the Year. Mason is known
for the countless hours she dedicates to the
Rotary Club and Eastern Star events.
The banquet's featured speaker was Ralph
Yoder who shared an inspiring message on
what Calhoun County has to offer.

Man arrested
for cocaine sales
Arthur Christopher

Blountstown, has been
charged with sale of cocaine
within 1000 feet of a school.
According to the
Calhoun County Sheriff's
Office, Inv. Mark Mallory
served a search warrant on
Jackson's Houston Street
home Feb. 24. A confiden-
tial source had been utilized
to make controlled purchas-
es of crack cocaine from
Jackson at the home.
The search of the house
turned up a small bag of
cocaine in a laundry room.
Jackson was booked into
the Calhoun County Jail
and posted bond two days
later.

Arrest in stolen
scrap metal case
Charles Lester Capps,
Jr.,, 43, has been charged
with grand theft.
According to the
Calhoun County Sheriff's
Department, an investiga-
tion was conducted into a
burglary at an old oil pump-
ing station on Hwy. 71
South earlier last month.
The case revealed scrap
metal had been stolen.
Inv. Michael Bryant
conducted a search of local
scrap metal recyclers and
the investigation led to
Capps as the person who
sold them to one of the local
scrap yards. The victim was
able to identify his items at

Tourist impressed with the


Panhandle Pioneer Settlement


- Letter to the Editor,
I live in Central Florida
but recently had the good
fortune of finding the
Panhandle Pioneer
Settlement in Blountstown.
� I'm writing to express my
belief that this facility is
nothing short of a national
treasure.
I've had a passion for
technology for years but it's
not the kind with buttons or
a mouse. There certainly
are many historic sites in
the United States ' and
Florida but I'm not aware
of a single one that is large-
ly comprised of older struc-
tures in which the restorer
personally knew the previ-
ous owners in such scale or
volume.


Not only is the Pioneer
Settlement done exception-
ally well, but it holds within
it's gates something more
valuable' that the total sum
net worth of it's parts,
pieces and antiques. It rep-
resents our past which was
primarily comprised of old
fashioned hot, back break-
ing work that demanding
improvising and required
ingenuity.
When children go
through this facility they
have the opportunity to
learn that lumber didn't
always come from a store
nor did food until relatively
recently come from a gro-
cery store. It gives older
adults a chance to reflect


back and appreciate and
remember too.
This country has sur-
vived every attack except
prosperity and convenience
and the Pioneer Settlement
is a resource to help others
get regrounded to our past
which represents a better
message than -any college
degree is supposed to
miraculously take care.
I hope your newspaper
and area will continue to
support the Panhandle
Pioneer Settlement and the
potential that- is there for
real education.

Respectfully,
Keith Holcomb
Orlando, FL


Margie Mason extends thanks


for 'Volunteer of Year" award


Letter to the Editor,
To my family, my friends
and to the Calhoun County
Chamber of Commerce,
THANK YOU! Thank you
for the honor bestowed
upon me Thursday,
February 25, 2010, when I


received thp Volunteer of
the Year .Award. It is the
most impressive award
ever presented to me.
I love my county, I love
what I do. Nothing is more
uplifting than to see things
accomplished that I have


been a part of. I am grate-
ful for the opportunities
given me by Calhoun
County and its citizens!

Gratefully,
Margie Mason


Kitty Wells Literacy Day


Author Karen Spears
Zacharias (pictured at right
and above) was on hand at
the Calhoun County Public
Library Monday for the Kitty
Wells Family Literacy Day.
Spears signed copies of her
latest book, Will Jesus Buy "
Me A Double-Wide?.
City Manager James
Woods read a proclamation
declaring March 1, 2010 as
Kitty Wells Day in
Blountstown. Wells was the
first librarian in Blountstown
and was dedicated to putting
books in the hands of every
child. Present for the occasion
were Wells' daughter, Barbara
Clemmons, and grandchil-
dren, Scott Clemmons and
Kathie Bennett.


Fox hunt-
coyotes develop a tolerance
and endurance at being
chased by the puppies. We
then introduce them to our
more experienced hounds.
We do not set a full pack of
hounds on the game trails,
but a very small number.
We have to slowly train both
our dogs and the game we
have them tracking."
Scott went on to explain
that-the game are very valu-
able to the pen and it is cer-
. .ta jly not the goal to have
Aliem killedby- the'dogs. He
\ told how the gmine are
'w6rm'ed each month and
given food and water. In
* addition, escape routes are
placed sporadically along
the trail. "Our animals are
treated with care and digni-
ty where they can roam
inside a confined space that
protects them from disease,
but also protects man from
seeing them as a threat and
killing them if they wander
too close to domesticated
animals or a farmer's crops.
Fox pens are protecting and
caring for predatory ani-
mals, not harming them."
Scott emphasized that
the game equal money to
the hunters. "The last thing
we want to happen is for a
piece of game to be hurt. If
an animal is hurt, that
means money has to be
spent in order to replace it."
He stressed to the FWC
that "Fox pens are conser-
vatory enclosures where
animals are cared for, pro-
tected, trained and chal-
lenged to out maneuver and
'out think hounds - chasing
them. They are not places
of death and murder, they
- are safe havens. The
emphasis is on the chase,
never the kill."

"Come Home to Rehab"



Blountstown Health & Rehabilitation Center

The science of medicine has advanced to the point that most hospital services and specialties can only be obtained in
larger regional medical centers in urban population centers. The fact is that most rural hospitals can no longer attract
enough patients to cover their costs so they have started'looking for other revenue streams to keep them in business. A
'ifg' ul these days is for the hospitals to attempt to provide extended care services through what they call "swing
beds" (their_words-not pjirs). "The Social Security Act allows small rural hospitals to utilize their vacant beds to provide
skilled nursing care to patients who no longer require hospitalization". But don't be fooled! Just because an
organization says they provide the same service as a free standing skilled nursing facility doesn't mean they actually do.
If you are considering a "swing bed" for a loved one, use the following comparison as a guide to help you make the best
choice for those you care about.

Countdown underway to Census Day


Calhoun County residents urged



to get counted with Census 2010


Census Day - April 1,
2010 - is roughly 30 days
away, and preparations are
in full-swing.
Activities to lay the
groundwork for the nation-
wide effort to count every-
one residing in the United
States are visible across the
country. Data from the
2010 Census will inform
critical decisions - from
congressional representa-
tion to the allocation of
more than $400 billion
annually in federal funds.
Calhoun County resi-
dents can expect to see the
2010 Census under way
through operational mile-
stones including:
* February 27 - Census
workers began delivering
preliminary letters to some
areas of Calhoun County.
* Week of March 8 -
Advance notification letters
will be mailed to alert
households to look for the
questionnaire and explain
why it is important to par-
ticipate.
* Week of March 15 -
Census questionnaires will
be mailed out to house-
holds throughout the U.S.,
and Census-in-Schools
Week begins.
* Week of March 22 -
Census Bureau will mail
reminder postcards to
households.
* Thursday, April 1 -
National Census Day: All
responses should represent
the households as it exists
on this day.
* Early May - July -
Census workers visit
households that did not
return a questionnaire by
mail to conduct the census
count in-person.
Households served by
the United States Postal
Service will receive their
forms in March 2010.
Census workers will hand-
deliver forms through April


Know how

to identify

census taker

By being counted in the
2010 Census you are stand-
ing up for what your com-
munity's needs are. That's
why census takers are so
important.
A census taker is a per-
son from your community
who is hired by the Census
Bureau to make sure that
your neighborhood gets rep-
resented as accurately as
possible. The census taker's
primary responsibility is to
collect census information
from residences that have
not sent back their 2010
Census form.
Census 2010 workers
wear an official identifica-
tion badge.
Census 2010 workers
carry U.S. Census Bureau
bags, making them easier to
identify.
The Census Bureau pro-
vides the census taker with
a binder containing all of the
addresses that didn't send
back a filled out census
form. The census taker then
visits all of those addresses
and records the answers to
the questions on the form .
If no one answers at a par-
ticular residence, a census
taker will visit that home up
to three times, each time
leaving a door hanger fea-
turing a phone number; res-
idents can call the number
on the hanger to schedule
the visit.
The census taker will
ONLY ask the questions
that appear on the census
form. They will NEVER
ask for your Social Security
Number or personal bank-
ing information (such as
account numbers or pass-
words). Your privacy and
confidentiality is our priori-
ty!
The census taker who
collects your information is
sworn for life to protect your
data under Federal Law
Title 13. Those who violate


the oath face criminal
penalties: Under federal
law, the penalty for unlawful
disclosure is a fine of up to
$250,000 or imprisonment
for up to 5 years, or both.


2010 in all other areas.
One of the shortest census
forms in U.S. Census histo-
ry, the 2010 Census form
asks 10 questions and takes
about 10 minutes to com-
plete.
Every person living in
the residence, both rela-
tives and non-relatives,
should be included on the
form. People should be
counted in the residence
where they live and sleep
most of the time.
Census data are used to
reapportion seats in the
U.S. House of
Representatives and for the
subsequent redistricting of
state and local govern-
ments. Census data also
help to determine how
more than $400 billion per
year in federal funding is
distributed to tribal, state
and local governments for
services that affect local
communities. Specifically,
Census data are critical
in determining locations for
new hospitals, improving
schools, building new
roads, expanding public
transportation options and
creating new maps for
emergency responders.

Census form answers
are safe and confidential.
By law, the Census Bureau
cannot share respondents'
answers with anyone,
including other federal
agencies and law enforce-
ment entities. All Census
Bureau employees take an
oath of nondisclosure and
are sworn for life to protect
the confidentiality of the
data. The penalty for
unlawful disclosure is a fine
of up to $250,000 or
imprisonment of up to five
years, or both.
Mailing back a form
ensures an accurate count
and lowers the cost of the
2010 Census by reducing


the number of census work-
ers who must go door-to-
door to collect census data.
Approximately $85 mil-
lion is saved for every 1-
percent increase in mail
participation.
Additionally, the Census
Bureau saves $60-$70 per
. Census form returned by
mail.
Questionnaire
Assistance Centers (QAC)
will be available to assist
those unable to read or


understand the census
form. For those with visual
impairments, the Language
Assistance Guide will be
available in large print and
Braille. Deaf and hard-of-
hearing persons who do not
have access to Video Relay
Service can call the TDD
number, (866) 783-2010.
In addition to these
options, Language
Assistance Guides will be
available in 59 languages at
all QAC locations.

In March of 1960, 50
years ago, the Blountstown
Tigers won their first state
championship in basket-
ball.
Many people in the
community still remember
the excitement and enthu-
siasm that team brought to
the town and the entire
county with the close and
exciting games they played
in winning the state Class
B tournament in
Gainesville that year.
Under Coach Warney
Adkinson, the team peaked
at just the right time. The
district tournament was in
Bristol in 1960 and
Blountstown won the tour-


snot by BrooKs arber over
a highly favored and very
strong Malone team, 37-
35.
At the state tournament
in Gainesville the following
week, the Tigers won three
games all by nail biting
scores of 59-57 over
Inverness, then 69-67 over
Ponce de Leon in sudden
death double overtime.
The final championship
game was played against
Zephyrhills and the score
was 56-55 in favor of
Blountstown. Earl
Montgomery set two Class
B scoring records at the
state tournament in 1960
that stood for many years.
Jerry Gates hit four free
throws in the final 24 sec-


game, as well as c LnH
playing in the other games
that got the Tigers in the
finals.
The team record was 20
wins and 8 losses. They
also won the Panhandle
Conference Tournament
and a Christmas tourna-
ment, making it four tour-
naments won. The team
was led by I Earl
Montgomery, the only sen-
ior, who averaged 25.3
points per game and was
the Big Bend Player of the
Year in basketball. In addi-
tion, Coach Adkinson was
selected Big Bend Coach of
the Year. Other starters
were Jerry Gates, Robert
Long, Brooks Barber, and
Mark Shiver. Other players

The School Board .pro-
vided buses for students to
attend the games in
Gainesville and it seemed
as if half the town was there
that week to enjoy what
everyone considered the
Tigers' magical ride of
1960.
Many of us growing up
in the 60s have carried the
fond and vivid memories of
those games and days for
all these years and it is
worth celebrating now the
50th anniversary of the
Tigers' first state champi-
onship.

ALTHA SCHOOL NEWS


* Teacher Feature
by Erin Fowler
As a senior at
Blountstown High School,
I've always heard people
talk about the "mean"
teachers and the "cool"
teachers; teachers that are
boring and teachers that
are exciting. One particular
teacher that has never fell
under anything but the cool
and exciting category is
Mrs. Samantha Taylor.
Those who have had her
class will agree that Mrs.
Taylor is an excellent
teacher. She makes learn-
ing fun and interesting sim-
ply because one can tell she
truly loves what she does. I
had the pleasure of getting
to know her on a more per-
d sonal level.
Mrs. Taylor is a
g Blountstown native and a
- 1990 graduate from BHS.
Her favorite subject in
school was Mr. Leonard's
government class! She
h explained to me, "that's
h what made me Want to be a
n teacher; he made it come to
a life!" Upon hearing this, I
o was prompted to ask what
she previously wanted to be
p when she grew up. With no
i- hesitation she told me that
h she had wanted to be a
.g Broadway Star, singing and
dancing her way on stage in
New York City. That would
%have been quite the experi-
ence for a small town girl.
Once sh'e graduated
from high school, Mrs.
Taylor went on to Chipola
(where she said she had
more fun than she should
have!), then went on to
Florida State University
where she got the knowl-
edge and skills to pursue
her teaching career.
At Blountstown Middle
School we were first intro-
duced to Mrs. Taylor,
where she interned and
taught for half a year. This
year's senior class was
among the first classes she
ever taught. Therefore, I
believe that it is safe to say
we hold a special place in
her heart. My classmates
s and I enjoyed having her in
s eighth grade, but we will
Y, never forget those dreaded
history packets!
After BMS, Mrs. Taylor
moved on to BHS and has
taught there for' four years!
She teaches subjects in
reading, history, govern-
ment, and economics. Her
favorite subject, however,
has got to be history. My
sophomore year, I had, her
history class, and it was,
without a doubt, my
favorite class because of all

FCCLA members spend day at the

capitol; Cats' Cuisine open Mar. 4


FCCLA News
by Cortney Harris
On Thursday, February
18, Cortney Harris, Jeffrey
Waldorff and Mrs. Marie
Granger traveled to the
state capitol in Tallahassee
for CTE day on the hill.
CTE stands for Career
and Technical Education.
They, along with many
other groups from around
Florida, set up their dis-
plays, and explained their
organization and plans to
many observers and state
legislators. As the State leg-
islators came around, we
were able to explain to
them the importance of
Family and Consumer
Science classes and
FCCLA in today's school
curriculum.
One of our National
Officers for FCCLA,
Jessica Hagood, also from
Florida, was on hand to
talk to the legislators. We
also had students from
Ponce De Leon High
School come and help sup-
port the group. Two of our
state officers, Kelsey
Livesly and Kendra
Bennett, were also there.
We all had a great time
as we got to meet many of
the State Legislators and
learn about many of the
other groups from around
Florida.

surprised me to some
extent because I didn't
think anyone could .follow
that show anymore! Her
favorite foods are sushi,
Italian dishes, and, as her
3rd period leadership class
will testify, the 'tater logs
from the Piggly Wiggly.
She adds she pretty much
likes anything. Her biggest
pet peeve is people talking
when she is trying to talk,
which I am sure many peo-
ple will have the same opin-
ion with, "It's very rude!"
she states. Her favorite
book is The Last Lecture
by Randy Pausch, "It
speaks to me", she says.
She mainly enjoys the fall
season because, "that's
when I got married, and
after a hot summer, it's nice
for things to be cool again."
After this response, I asked
her about her husband and
best friend. She has been
married to Bryan Taylor
("Farmer Bryan") for 11
happy years!
To wrap things up, I
asked, "What are two
things you would like to do
before you die?" This
question seemed to stump
her a bit. She explained to
me that she had pretty
much done everything she
had wanted to do before the
age of 19. Not many peo-
ple can say that!
Nevertheless, after reeling
over the question for a
while, she finally made up
her mind and said she


would really love to sail the
Greek Islands for two
weeks on a private sail boat
and she would like to
attend an opera at the
Metropolitan Opera in
New York City. These
responses did not surprise
me in the least because I
know Taylor to be an
adventurous sort of woman
that likes to do things big.
Apart from the things I
knew of Mrs. Samantha
Taylor, this interview was
an entertaining and enlight-
ening way of better under-
standing the kind of person
she is. One thing I know for
certain is that Mrs. Taylor
is probably going to be the
teacher I will miss the
most.

RITA BOWLES
PEARSON
! Rita Gwen Bowles
Pearson left this earth


peacefully on February 28,
2010.
Born in Blountstown,
Florida, on February 5,
1930, to C.B, (Coach) and
Velma Trammell Bowles,
Rita moved to Clay County
as a small child when her
father took a teaching posi-
tion there. She shared fond
memories of growing up in
Green Cove Springs as well
as time spent with grand-
parents in Blountstown or
near Silver Street, South
Carolina, during alternat-
ing summers.
Growing up, Rita was
active in all aspects of
small-town life and excelled
in everything she did. She
graduated as Valedictorian
from Clay High in 1947
and headed to Florida
State University where she
would complete a double
.major in English and
Education along with a
double minor in Spanish
and History. Along the
way, she played intramural
sports and served as presi-
dent of Alpha Omicron Pi
sorority. After graduating
in 1951, she returned home
where her father served as
Superintendent of Schools
for Clay County. She took
a teaching position in St.
Johns County to avoid any
conflict working under him
might present and resided
and worked there for the
rest of her life.
Rita met her future hus-
band while he was sta-
tioned at Naval Base
Green Cove Springs,
Florida. In 1953, she and
Robert Bruce Pearson
married. They were mar-
ried for over 46 years at the
time of his passing in 2000.
Rita taught in the St.
Johns County , public
schools for 18 years, mostly
teaching seventh-grade
English. For the next 25
years, she taught second-
ary English, Spanish and
History at the Florida
State School for the Blind.
She retired with more than
43 years of teaching experi-
ence. Though she received
many accolades for her
skills along the way, the
most. meaningful reward
was seeing her former stu-
dents succeed. She was
proud to have taught over
3,000 students in her
career and loved to hear
about what they were doing
as adults. In retirement,
she frequently ran into for-
mer students and never
failed to remember some-
one she had taught.
Officially retired in 1995,
she continued to teach her
children, grandchildren,
great-grandchildren and
anyone else in her path
throughout the remaining
years of her life.
Rita believed that God
had a plan for her and was
confident that she would be
all right following it regard-
less of where it led. She
was the caretaker of her
family and friends and was
always looking for ways to
do something to make
someone's life a little easi-

We are never prepared for
the passing of a loved one,
even when the passing
comes after a long and
serious illness. And when the
loss is sudden and
unexpected, the shock can be
overwhelming. No matter the
circumstances of loss, there
is always sadness, heartache,
and emptiness.
You have a right to grieve
and to heal. Healing doesn't
mean forgetting your loss.
You never will. Rather,
healing helps you to accept it
as part of your life and move
on. If you're one of the
family members we have
served, we would like you to
know you are still in our
thoughts.
No matter how short, no
matter how long, a life lived
is never lost to those who
remember.

Calhoun County Extension booth


captures fourth place at state fair


BY JUDY LUDLOW
Calhoun Extension Director

The Calhoun County
Extension office was proud
to represent Calhoun
County at both the North
Florida Fair in Tallahassee,
and the State Fair in
Tampa this fall and winter.
Each participating coun-
ty creates a display that
reflects a unique aspect of
their community. The
Extension office has partic-
ipated in these Fairs for
many years. This year we
highlighted the fact that,
only through the dedication
of community leaders and
citizens, Blountstown was
recently designated as a
Gateway Community by
the Florida Trail
Association! http://www.

Our trail runs along
much of the former
Marianna and Blountstown
(M&B) Railroad, which
served this area from 1909

County's segment of trail is
also officially part of the
larger Florida National

Nature based tourism is
growing in its importance to
the economies of many
Florida communities. So
much so, that the Florida
Greenways and Trails
Council has unanimously
supported a resolution rec-
ognizing the economic
impact of Florida's trails
and greenways. The reso-

ways experienced their
highest annual visitation
ever with over 4 million
users, generating an esti-
mated $95 million of eco-
nomic impact.
* Sixty five percent of
Florida's more than 80 mil-
lion visitors include nature-
based activities in their
travel (VISIT FLORIDA
Research).
* Trails are an "econom-
ic engine" for communities
like Dunedin which has
seen downtown business
occupancy rates triple due
to the impact of the Pinellas
Trail.
* Trails are the most
sought after community
amenity that Americans
seek when buying a home
(2008, National
Association of
Homebuilders).
These trails also help
preserve important habitat,
and wildlife corridors
throughout the state. So
next time you are enjoying
Calhoun County's
Blountstown Greenway,
remember that you are
connected to much more!

RITA BOWLES
PEARSON
Rita Gwen Bowles
Pearson left this earth


peacefully on February 28,
2010.
Born in Blountstown,
Florida, on February 5,
1930, to C.B. (Coach) and
Velma Trammell Bowles,
Rita moved to Clay County
as a small child when her
father took a teaching posi-
tion there. She shared fond
memories of growing up in
Green Cove Springs as well
as time spent with grand-
parents in Blountstown or
near Silver Street, South
Carolina, during alternat-
ing summers.
Growing up, Rita was
active in all aspects of
small-town life and excelled
in everything she did. She
graduated as Valedictorian
from Clay High in 1947
and headed to Florida
State University where she
would complete a double
major in English and
Education along with a
double minor in Spanish
and History. Along the
way, she played intramural
sports and served as presi-
dent of Alpha Omicron Pi
sorority. After graduating
in 1951, she returned home
where her father served as
Superintendent of Schools
for Clay County. She took
a teaching position in St.
Johns County to avoid any
conflict working under him
might present and resided
and worked there for the
rest of her life.
Rita met her future hus-
band while he was sta-
tioned at Naval Base
Green Cove Springs,
Florida. In 1953, she and
Robert Bruce Pearson
married. They were mar-
ried for over 46 years at the
time of his passing in 2000.
Rita taught in the St.
Johns County public
schools for 18 years, mostly
teaching seventh-grade
English. For the next 25
years, she taught second-
ary English, Spanish and
History at the Florida
State School for the Blind.
She retired with more than
43 years of teaching experi-
ence. Though she received
many accolades for her
skills along the way, the
most meaningful reward
was seeing her former stu-
dents succeed. She was
proud to have taught over
3,000 students in her
career and loved to hear
about what they were doing
as adults. In retirement,
she frequently ran into for-
mer students and never
failed to remember some-
one she had taught.
Officially retired in 1995,
she continued to teach her
children, grandchildren,
great-grandchildren and
anyone else in her path
throughout the remaining
years of her life.
Rita believed that God
had a plan for her and was
confident that she would be
all right following it regard-
less of where it led. She
was the caretaker of her
family and friends and was
always looking for ways to
do something to make
someone's life a little easi-

A T 'hougjt

to Remember






Tm Adams
Fluneral4Diredor
We are never prepared for
the passing of a loved one,
even when the passing
comes after a long and
serious illness. And when the
loss is sudden and
unexpected, the shock can be
overwhelming. No matter the
circumstances of loss, there
is always sadness, heartache,
and emptiness.
You have a right to grieve
and to heal. Healing doesn't
mean forgetting your loss.
You never will. Rather,
healing helps you to accept it
as part of your life and move
on. If you're one of the
family members we have
served, we would like you to
know you are still in our
thoughts.
No matter how short, no
matter how long, a life lived
is never lost to those who
remember.

er. Her life journey led her
through an almost 19-year
battle with breast cancer
during which she was a
remarkable role model for
all who knew her. She was
ever-present at birthday
parties, band competitions,
ballet or piano recitals,
karate demonstrations,
choir performances, foot-
ball games and other activ-
ities involving her grand-
children or great-grandchil-
dren, frequently scheduling
her treatment or doctors'
appointments around the
activities to avoid missing
them. Known for an unbe-
lievable memory and vast
knowledge store, Rita's
interests and talents were
varied and included being a
gifted pianist, tireless gar-
dener, perennial student of
Florida history and
absolute expert bargain-
shopper. She enjoyed
being a member of the
Scimitars, the retired
teachers' group and the
retired post office breakfast
crew and was a frequent
line-dancer at the Council
on Aging. She will be


greatly missed.
In addition to her par-
ents and husband, Rita was
predeceased by her broth-
er, Claude Broadus
Bowles, Jr., and her daugh-
ter, Gwen Diane Pearson.
She leaves behind to cher-
ish her memory her daugh-
ter Pamela Pearson Mann

Charles Keith Sellner;
brothers John William
Bowles (Linda) of Orange
Park; Donovan Trammell

life was held Wednesday,

Calhoun County Extension booth


captures fourth place at state fair


BY JUDY LUDLOW
Calhoun Extension Director

The Calhoun County
Extension office was proud
to represent Calhoun
County at both the North
Florida Fair in Tallahassee,
and the State Fair in
Tampa this fall and winter.
Each participating coun-
ty creates a display that
reflects a unique aspect of
their community. The
Extension office has partic-
ipated in these Fairs for
many years. This year we
highlighted the fact that,
only through the dedication
of community leaders and
citizens, Blountstown was
recently designated as a
Gateway Community by
the Florida Trail
Association! http://www.

Our trail runs along
much of the former
Marianna and Blountstown

served this area from 1909

also officially part of the
larger Florida National

Nature based tourism is
growing in its importance to
the economies of many
Florida communities. So
much so, that the Florida
Greenways and Trails
Council has unanimously
supported a resolution rec-

ways experienced their
highest annual visitation
ever with over 4 million
users, generating an esti-
mated $95 million of eco-
nomic impact.
Sixty five percent of
Florida's more than 80 mil-
lion visitors include nature-
based activities in their
travel (VISIT FLORIDA
Research).
Trails are an "econom-
ic engine" for communities
like Dunedin which has
seen downtown business
occupancy rates triple due
to the impact of the Pinellas
Trail.
Trails are the most
sought after community
amenity that Americans
seek when buying a home
(2008, National
Association of
Homebuilders).
These trails also help
preserve important habitat,
and wildlife corridors
throughout the state. So
next time you are enjoying
Calhoun County's
Blountstown Greenway,
remember that you are
connected to much more!

Countdown underway to Census Day


Calhoun County residents urged



to get counted with Census 2010


Census Day April 1,
2010 is roughly 30 days
away, and preparations are
in full-swing.
Activities to lay the
groundwork for the nation-
wide effort to count every-
one residing in the United
States are visible across the
country. Data from the
2010 Census will inform
critical decisions from
congressional representa-
tion to the allocation of
more than $400 billion
annually in federal funds.
Calhoun County resi-
dents can expect to see the
2010 Census under way
through operational mile-
stones including:
February 27 Census
workers began delivering
preliminary letters to some
areas of Calhoun County.
Week of March 8 -
Advance notification letters
will be mailed to alert
households to look for the
questionnaire and explain
why it is important to par-
ticipate.
Week of March 15 -
Census questionnaires will
be mailed out to house-
holds throughout the U.S.,
and Census-in-Schools
Week begins.
Week of March 22 -
Census Bureau will mail
reminder postcards to
households.
Thursday, April 1 -
National Census Day: All
responses should represent
the households as it exists
on this day.
Early May July -
Census workers visit
households that did not
return a questionnaire by
mail to conduct the census
count in-person.
Households served by
the United States Postal
Service will receive their
forms in March 2010.
Census workers will hand-
deliver forms through April



Know how

to identify

census taker

By being counted in the
2010 Census you are stand-
ing up for what your com-
munity's needs are. That's
why census takers are so
important.
A census taker is a per-
son from your community
who is hired by the Census
Bureau to make sure that
your neighborhood gets rep-
resented as accurately as
possible. The census taker's
primary responsibility is to
collect census information
from residences that have
not sent back their 2010
Census form.
Census 2010 workers
wear an official identifica-
tion badge.
Census 2010 workers
carry U.S. Census Bureau
bags, making them easier to
identify.
The Census Bureau pro-
vides the census taker with
a binder containing all of the
addresses that didn't send
back a filled out census
form. The census taker then
visits all of those addresses
and records the answers to
the questions on the form .
If no one answers at a par-
ticular residence, a census
taker will visit that home up
to three times, each time
leaving a door hanger fea-
turing a phone number; res-
idents can call the number
on the hanger to schedule
the visit.
The census taker will
ONLY ask the questions
that appear on the census
form. They will NEVER
ask for your Social Security
Number or personal bank-
ing information (such as
account numbers or pass-
words). Your privacy and
confidentiality is our priori-
ty!
The census taker who
collects your information is
sworn for life to protect your
data under Federal Law
Title 13. Those who violate


2010 in all other areas.
One of the shortest census
forms in U.S. Census histo-
ry, the 2010 Census form
asks 10 questions and takes
about 10 minutes to com-
plete.
Every person living in
the residence, both rela-
tives and non-relatives,
should be included on the
form. People should be
counted in the residence
where they live and sleep
most of the time.
Census data are used to
reapportion seats in the
U.S. House of
Representatives and for the
subsequent redistricting of
state and local govern-
ments. Census data also
help to determine how
more than $400 billion per
year in federal funding is
distributed to tribal, state
and local governments for
services that affect local
communities. Specifically,
Census data are critical
in determining locations for
new hospitals, improving
schools, building new
roads, expanding public
transportation options and
creating new maps for
emergency responders.

Census form answers
are safe and confidential.
By law, the Census Bureau
cannot share respondents'
answers with anyone,
including other federal
agencies and law enforce-
ment entities. All Census
Bureau employees take an
oath of nondisclosure and
are sworn for life to protect
the confidentiality of the
data. The penalty for
unlawful disclosure is a fine
of up to $250,000 or
imprisonment of up to five
years, or both.
Mailing back a form
ensures an accurate count
and lowers the cost of the
2010 Census by reducing


the number of census work-
ers who must go door-to-
door to collect census data.
Approximately $85 mil-
lion is saved for every 1-
percent increase in mail
participation.
Additionally, the Census
Bureau saves $60-$70 per
Census form returned by
mail.
Questionnaire
Assistance Centers (QAC)
will be available to assist
those unable to read or


understand the census
form. For those with visual
impairments, the Language
Assistance Guide will be
available in large print and
Braille. Deaf and hard-of-
hearing persons who do not
have access to Video Relay
Service can call the TDD
number, (866) 783-2010.
In addition to these
options, Language
Assistance Guides will be
available in 59 languages at
all QAC locations.

BES 2nd grade presents "Bugz";


math fair, night of family fun held

The second graders at Blountstown Elementary School (pictured above) presented
the play "BUGZ" under the direction of Mrs. Cathy Kimbrel on Friday, February 26.
Friends and family of the second graders enjoyed a wonderful play about a stink-bug
who was an outcast among the bugs but was finally able to join the other bugs on a pic-
nic. The students' performance was outstanding.
Math Fair
The third and fourth
graders enjoyed a Math
Fair in the Blountstown
Elementary School Media
Center for the last two
weeks.
The library was set up
into five stations where stu-
dents rotated playing math
games while practicing
important math skills.


Family Reading and
Math Night
Students from Pre-K
through 5th grades brought
their parents to school on
Monday night for our annu-
al Family Reading and
Math Night.
The students enjoyed
going from center to center
practicing important math
skills in a fun way. There
were eight teacher-directed
centers including,
Measurement-Pudding
Parfait where students were
able to practice their meas-
uring skills and then were
able to enjoy their creation
by eating the pudding par-
fait. There was a Hershey's Fractions center where students learned all about fractions
with the help of a Hershey's Chocolate bar. Another activity that students enjoyed was
Measurement-Fruit by the Foot. Students practiced measuring length with the candy,
Fruit by the Foot, and then were able to eat what they measured.
There were many more "hands-on" math activities that parents could easily repro-
duce at home to help reinforce the math skills that their children are learning at school.

Teacher Feature
by Erin Fowler
As a senior at
Blountstown High School,
I've always heard people
talk about the "mean"
teachers and the "cool"
teachers; teachers that are
boring and teachers that
are exciting. One particular
teacher that has never fell
under anything but the cool
and exciting category is
Mrs. Samantha Taylor.
Those who have had her
class will agree that Mrs.
Taylor is an excellent
teacher. She makes learn-
ing fun and interesting sim-
ply because one can tell she
truly loves what she does. I
had the pleasure of getting
to know her on a more per-
sonal level.
Mrs. Taylor is a
Blountstown native and a
1990 graduate from BHS.
Her favorite subject in
school was Mr. Leonard's
government class! She
explained to me, "that's
what made me want to be a
teacher; he made it come to
life!" Upon hearing this, I
was prompted to ask what
she previously wanted to be
when she grew up. With no
hesitation she told me that
she had wanted to be a
Broadway Star, singing and
dancing her way on stage in
New York City. That would
have been quite the experi-
ence for a small town girl.
Once she graduated
from high school, Mrs.
Taylor went on to Chipola
(where she said she had
more fun than she should
have!), then went on to
Florida State University
where she got the knowl-
edge and skills to pursue
her teaching career.
At Blountstown Middle
School we were first intro-
duced to Mrs. Taylor,
where she interned and
taught for half a year. This
year's senior class was
among the first classes she
ever taught. Therefore, I
believe that it is safe to say
we hold a special place in
her heart. My classmates
and I enjoyed having her in
eighth grade, but we will
never forget those dreaded
history packets!
After BMS, Mrs. Taylor
moved on to BHS and has
taught there for four years!
She teaches subjects in
reading, history, govern-
ment, and economics. Her
favorite subject, however,
has got to be history. My
sophomore year, I had her
history class, and it was,
without a doubt, my
favorite class because of all


meeting set
the cool projects we had to
do. She made history more
interesting and easier to
understand for all of us.
Shifting gears a bit and
getting more personal, I
asked what her favorite TV.
show is. She says, "As of
right now, LOST." This

50th anniversary of Tigers' first Father &daughter bag


state basketball championship


SUBMITTED BY
MIKE TUCKER

In March of 1960, 50
years ago, the Blountstown
Tigers won their first state
championship in basket-
ball.
Many people in the
community still remember
the excitement and enthu-
siasm that team brought to
the town and the entire
county with the close and
exciting games they played
in winning the state Class
B tournament in
Gainesville that year.
Under Coach Warney
Adkinson, the team peaked
at just the right time. The
district tournament was in
Bristol in 1960 and
Blountstown won the tour-


nament on a last second
shot by Brooks Barber over
a highly favored and very
strong Malone team, 37-
35.
At the state tournament
in Gainesville the following
week, the Tigers won three
games all by nail biting
scores of 59-57 over
Inverness, then 69-67 over
Ponce de Leon in sudden
death double overtime.
The final championship
game was played against
Zephyrhills and the score
was 56-55 in favor of
Blountstown. Earl
Montgomery set two Class
B scoring records at the
state tournament in 1960
that stood for many years.
Jerry Gates hit four free
throws in the final 24 sec-


onds in the Ponce de Leon
game, as well as clutch
playing in the other games
that got the Tigers in the
finals.
The team record was 20
wins and 8 losses. They
also won the Panhandle
Conference Tournament
and a Christmas tourna-
ment, making it four tour-
naments won. The team
was led by Earl
Montgomery, the only sen-
ior, who averaged 25.3
points per game and was
the Big Bend Player of the
Year in basketball. In addi-
tion, Coach Adkinson was
selected Big Bend Coach of
the Year. Other starters
were Jerry Gates, Robert
Long, Brooks Barber, and
Mark Shiver. Other players


on the team were Joe Mike
McCaskill, Tommy
Montford, Robert Davis,
Jimmy Dykes, Charles
Price, Ray Williams, and
Jackie Fields.
The School Board pro-
vided buses for students to
attend the games in
Gainesville and it seemed
as if half the town was there
that week to enjoy what
everyone considered the
Tigers' magical ride of
1960.
Many of us growing up
in the 60s have carried the
fond and vivid memories of
those games and days for
all these years and it is
worth celebrating now the
50th anniversary of the
Tigers' first state champi-
onship.

BY KELLI PEACOCK DUNN
News Editor

The Blountstown Lady
Tigers improved to 5-2
overall after three games
last week.
The girls lost to Sneads,
3-8, last Tuesday. Brittany
Griffin took the loss on the
mound, allowing 10 hits,
five earned runs, walking
six, and striking out two.
Griffin led at the plate
with a double and a single.
Anna Kelley, Lindsey
Doyal, Brittney Brown,
Ann Marie Silcox, and
Genny Starr each had a
single.
"We walked too many
and made too many crucial
mistakes," says Coach
Bubba Johnson. "We've got
to get better!"
Next up was Cottondale
and the Lady Tigers turned
things around, winning 8-2.
Griffin improved her pitch-
ing record to 4-2, allowing


no earned runs and striking
out nine.
Offensively, Lindsey
Doyal had a double, a sin-
gle and two RBIs. Griffin
offered a double, a single
and one RBI. Selena
Williams had a double, a
walk, and three RBIs.
"This was our first win
against Cottondale since
we've been in the same dis-
trict," Coach Johnson
points out.
The following day, the
Lady Tigers went up
against Franklin County
and chalked up a 7-6 win.
Griffin struckout 10 bat-
ters, walked three and
allowed four earned runs.
At the plate, the Lady
Tigers put the bats in
motion. "We got some
timely his in this one," says
Coach Johnson.
Kelley had a double,
three singles, scored two
runs and had an RBI.
Griffin had a double, two


singles and two RBIs.
Doyal had a double, a sin-
gle and an RBI. Brown had
two singles. Williams had a
single and two RBIs.
"Amber Burch made an
outstanding catch for the
second out in the top of the
seventh, robbing a double
from the Seahawks,"
Coach Johnson remarks.
"Selena Williams played
outstanding at short stop."
The J.V. girls are now at
4-2 after losing to Sneads
and Franklin County and
defeating Cottondale.
The Lady Tigers travel
to Eastpoint on Thursday,
then return Friday to host
South Walton with game

Tourist impressed with the


Panhandle Pioneer Settlement


Letter to the Editor,
I live in Central Florida
but recently had the good
fortune of finding the
Panhandle Pioneer
Settlement in Blountstown.
I'm writing to express my
belief that this facility is
nothing short of a national
treasure.
I've had a passion for
technology for years but it's
not the kind with buttons or
a mouse. There certainly
are many historic sites in
the United States and
Florida but I'm not aware
of a single one that is large-
ly comprised of older struc-
tures in which the restorer
personally knew the previ-
ous owners in such scale or
volume.


Not only is the Pioneer
Settlement done exception-
ally well, but it holds within
it's gates something more
valuable that the total sum
net worth of it's parts,
pieces and antiques. It rep-
resents our past which was
primarily comprised of old
fashioned hot, back break-
ing work that demanding
improvising and required
ingenuity.
When children go
through this facility they
have the opportunity to
learn that lumber didn't
always come from a store
nor did food until relatively
recently come from a gro-
cery store. It gives older
adults a chance to reflect


back and appreciate and
remember too.
This country has sur-
vived every attack except
prosperity and convenience
and the Pioneer Settlement
is a resource to help others
get regrounded to our past
which represents a better
message than any college
degree is supposed to
miraculously take care.
I hope your newspaper
and area will continue to
support the Panhandle
Pioneer Settlement and the
potential that is there for
real education.

Respectfully,
Keith Holcomb

the Year Award. It is the
most impressive award
ever presented to me.
I love my county, I love
what I do. Nothing is more
uplifting than to see things
accomplished that I have


been a part of. I am grate-
ful for the opportunities
given me by Calhoun
County and its citizens!

Gratefully,

Kitty Wells Literacy Day


Author Karen Spears
Zacharias (pictured at right
and above) was on hand at
the Calhoun County Public
Library Monday for the Kitty
Wells Family Literacy Day.
Spears signed copies of her
latest book, Will Jesus Buy
Me A Double-Wide?.
City Manager James
Woods read a proclamation
declaring March 1, 2010 as
Kitty Wells Day in
Blountstown. Wells was the
first librarian in Blountstown
and was dedicated to putting
books in the hands of every
child. Present for the occasion
were Wells' daughter, Barbara
Clemmons, and grandchil-
dren, Scott Clemmons and
Kathie Bennett.


Fox hunt-
coyotes develop a tolerance
and endurance at being
chased by the puppies. We
then introduce them to our
more experienced hounds.
We do not set a full pack of
hounds on the game trails,
but a very small number.
We have to slowly train both
our dogs and the game we
have them tracking."
Scott went on to explain
that the game are very valu-
able to the pen and it is cer-
tainly not the goal to have
them killed by the dogs. He
told how the game are
wormed each month and
given food and water. In
addition, escape routes are
placed sporadically along
the trail. "Our animals are
treated with care and digni-
ty where they can roam
inside a confined space that
protects them from disease,
but also protects man from
seeing them as a threat and
killing them if they wander
too close to domesticated
animals or a farmer's crops.
Fox pens are protecting and
caring for predatory ani-
mals, not harming them."
Scott emphasized that
the game equal money to
the hunters. "The last thing
we want to happen is for a
piece of game to be hurt. If
an animal is hurt, that
means money has to be
spent in order to replace it."
He stressed to the FWC
that "Fox pens are conser-
vatory enclosures where
animals are cared for, pro-
tected, trained and chal-
lenged to out maneuver and
out think hounds chasing
them. They are not places
of death and murder, they
are safe havens. The
emphasis is on the chase,
never the kill."
Watch for more details
on the new stakeholders
meeting.

"Come Home to Rehab"



Blountstown Health & Rehabilitation Center

The science of medicine has advanced to the point that most hospital services and specialties can only be obtained in
larger regional medical centers in urban population centers. The fact is that most rural hospitals can no longer
attract enough patients to cover their costs so they have started looking for other revenue streams to keep them in
business. A big push these days is for the hospitals to attempt to provide extended care services through what they
call "swing beds" (their words-not ours). "The Social Security Act allows small rural hospitals to utilize their
vacant beds to provide skilled nursing care to patients who no longer require hospitalization". But don't be fooled!
Just because an organization says they provide the same service as a free standing skilled nursing facility doesn't
mean they actually do. If you are considering a "swing bed" for a loved one. use the following comparison as a guide
to help you make the best choice for those you care about.

Confederate soldiers remembered


at headstone dedication ceremony
Ancestors of Benjamin
H. Stephens, a confederate
soldier who died in 1892,
are pictured above as they
gathered at the Rogers
Family Cemetery in Bascom
Saturday for a headstone
dedication. The ceremony
was presented by the Sons
of Confederate Veterans
with gravestones dedicated
to four soldiers.
Stephens' descendants
include the Johnny and
Jerry Bulzer family of
Liberty County.
At the age of 21,
Stephens was enlisted in the military service of the Confederate State of America on
March 30, 1861. He re-enlisted the following year at Pensacola and was listed as a
paroled prisoner, receiving a $50 bounty payment due him. Corporal Stephens appears
on a list of paroled Confederate prisoners captured by the U.S. Forces in Kentucky in
the fall of 1862. He was placed in camp at Chattanooga, Tennessee, until declared
exchanged on Jan. 11, 1863. He was hospitalized in Marietta, GA, later that year, then
in Richmond, VA, the following year. Records show he was present near High Point, NC
in April 1865 as a 3rd Sgt. in Company C-lst Regiment Florida Infantry. He was
paroled at Greensboro, NC on May 1, 1865.


BHS News continued


surprised me to some
extent because I didn't
think anyone could follow
that show anymore! Her
favorite foods are sushi,
Italian dishes, and, as her
3rd period leadership class
will testify, the 'tater logs
from the Piggly Wiggly.
She adds she pretty much
likes anything. Her biggest
pet peeve is people talking
when she is trying to talk,
which I am sure many peo-
ple will have the same opin-
ion with, "It's very rude!"
she states. Her favorite
book is The Last Lecture
by Randy Pausch, "It
speaks to me", she says.
She mainly enjoys the fall
season because, "that's
when I got married, and
after a hot summer, it's nice
for things to be cool again."
After this response, I asked
her about her husband and
best friend. She has been
married to Bryan Taylor
("Farmer Bryan") for 11
happy years!
To wrap things up, I
asked, "What are two
things you would like to do
before you die?" This
question seemed to stump
her a bit. She explained to
me that she had pretty
much done everything she
had wanted to do before the
age of 19. Not many peo-
ple can say that!
Nevertheless, after reeling
over the question for a
while, she finally made up
her mind and said she


would really love to sail the
Greek Islands for two
weeks on a private sail boat
and she would like to
attend an opera at the
Metropolitan Opera in
New York City. These
responses did not surprise
me in the least because I
know Taylor to be an
adventurous sort of woman
that likes to do things big.
Apart from the things I
knew of Mrs. Samantha
Taylor, this interview was
an entertaining and enlight-
ening way of better under-
standing the kind of person
she is. One thing I know for
certain is that Mrs. Taylor
is probably going to be the
teacher I will miss the
most.

That dog

won't hunt?

FWC may

put an end

to foxhunt

tradition
BY KELLI PEACOCK DUNN
News Editor
Some of Sky Scott's
earliest memories can be
traced back to the 750
acre Sandsifters Fox Pen.
Like other youngsters,
he stood by with his dad
and the other grownups
on many an afternoon,
away from television and
video games, listening
and waiting, hoping one
of his foxhounds would
come back a winner.
Now a school teacher
in Calhoun County, Scott
fears that this sport he's
come to love so dearly
will soon be a thing of the
past. As reported in last
week's edition, the
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation
Commission (FWC)
voted in February to


temporarily prohibit the
chasing of foxes and coy-
otes in enclosures, while
moving forward to draft
rules guiding such enclo-
sures. An executive order
prohibiting chasing of
foxes and coyotes within
an enclosure was issued
last week.
So why all the fuss?
Some say the sport is a
form of cruelty to ani-
mals, alleging mauling of
coyotes and foxes chased
during the hunts.
FWC Chairman
Rodney Barreto says he
leaned toward an out-
right ban of the practice,
but also felt the process


should be given a chance
for review.
"I'm not sure I'll sup-
port the draft rules when
they come back," Barreto
remarks. "I don't see any
sport in the animals' hav-
ing no escape. I personal-
ly don't agree with the
practice.
But Scott, now a
board member with the
Florida State Foxhunters
Association, says those
opposed to fox hunting
are misinformed. He
aimed to set the record
straight when he
appeared before the
FWC during their hear-
ing last month.


"When a coyote or fox
is released into a fox pen,
this animal is not imme-
diately pursued by a sav-
age pack of blood-thirsty
hounds as so many have
been led to believe," he
testified. "We introduce
the new game of the pen
to the dog carefully as we
introduce our pups to the
skill of tracking. A new
game animal will be freed
to familiarize itself with
it's new surroundings.
After a period of time,
the game will be chased
at first by our pups.
Gradually, the foxes and

Burglary, grand
theft arrest
Kennith Wayne Taylor,
was arrested Friday in
Liberty County on charges
of burglary of a structure
and grand theft.
According to the Liberty
County Sheriff's Office,
Taylor is accused of stealing
a chop saw, pancake com-
pressor, transit with tripod,
and several hand tools from
the maintenance building
at Veterans Memorial Park
back in October.
Taylor allegedly admit-
ted to the burglary. He was
booked into the Liberty
County Jail and remained
in custody at press time.

Man arrested
for cocaine sales
Arthur Christopher
Jackson, 35, of
Blountstown, has been
charged with sale of cocaine
within 1000 feet of a school.
According to the
Calhoun County Sheriff's
Office, Inv. Mark Mallory
served a search warrant on
Jackson's Houston Street
home Feb. 24. A confiden-
tial source had been utilized
to make controlled purchas-
es of crack cocaine from
Jackson at the home.
The search of the house
turned up a small bag of
cocaine in a laundry room.
Jackson was booked into
the Calhoun County Jail
and posted bond two days
later.

Arrest in stolen
scrap metal case
Charles Lester Capps,
Jr., 43, has been charged
with grand theft.
According to the
Calhoun County Sheriff's
Department, an investiga-
tion was conducted into a
burglary at an old oil pump-
ing station on Hwy. 71
South earlier last month.
The case revealed scrap
metal had been stolen.
Inv. Michael Bryant
conducted a search of local
scrap metal recyclers and
the investigation led to
Capps as the person who
sold them to one of the local
scrap yards. The victim was
able to identify his items at
the yard.
Capps was booked into
the Calhoun County Jail
and given a conditional
release.

Adams Funeral Home was in charge of the arrangements (ph. 6745449 or online at www.adamsfh.com). DEBRA ANN PATE Mrs. Debra Ann Page, 49, of Blountstown, passed away Tuesday, February 23, 2010, at Bay Medical Center in Panama City. Debra was born on March 23, 1960, in Apalachicola and had lived in Calhoun County for most of her life. Debra was a retired Corrections Officer, working at Liberty CI for five years. She was also a caregiver and homemaker. Debra was preceded in death by her husband, Vernon Dallas Pate. Survivors include her children, Phillip Pate and his wife, Barbara, of Blountstown, Kristi Glass and her husband, Mark, of Tallahassee, Rusty Wayne Shiver and his wife, Courtney, of Blountstown, Kody Pate of Blountstown; three brothers, Paul Sikes and his wife, Stephanie, of Bristol, James Sikes and his wife, Vickie, of Bristol, Mark Sikes and his wife, Melody, of Tampa; one sister, Wanda Causey and her husband, Charles, of Blountstown; four grandchildren, Curtis Wilkes, Samantha Adams Bryant, Sara Glass, and Alyssa Shiver.

All arrangements were under the direction of Marlon Peavy at Peavy Funeral Home in Blountstown, FL (ph. 850674-2266). RITA BOWLES PEARSON Rita Gwen Bowles Pearson left this earth peacefully on February 28, 2010. Born in Blountstown, Florida, on February 5, 1930, to C.B. (Coach) and Velma Trammell Bowles, Rita moved to Clay County as a small child when her father took a teaching position there. She shared fond memories of growing up in Green Cove Springs as well as time spent with grandparents in Blountstown or near Silver Street, South Carolina, during alternating summers. Growing up, Rita was active in all aspects of small-town life and excelled in everything she did. She graduated as Valedictorian from Clay High in 1947 and headed to Florida State University where she would complete a double major in English and Education along with a double minor in Spanish and History. Along the way, she played intramural sports and served as president of Alpha Omicron Pi sorority. After graduating in 1951, she returned home where her father served as Superintendent of Schools for Clay County. She took a teaching position in St. Johns County to avoid any conflict working under him might present and resided and worked there for the rest of her life. Rita met her future husband while he was stationed at Naval Base Green Cove Springs, Florida. In 1953, she and Robert Bruce Pearson married. They were married for over 46 years at the time of his passing in 2000. Rita taught in the St. Johns County public schools for 18 years, mostly teaching seventh-grade English. For the next 25 years, she taught secondary English, Spanish and History at the Florida State School for the Blind. She retired with more than 43 years of teaching experience. Though she received many accolades for her skills along the way, the most meaningful reward was seeing her former students succeed. She was proud to have taught over 3,000 students in her career and loved to hear about what they were doing as adults. In retirement, she frequently ran into former students and never failed to remember someone she had taught. Officially retired in 1995, she continued to teach her children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren and anyone else in her path throughout the remaining years of her life. Rita believed that God had a plan for her and was confident that she would be all right following it regardless of where it led. She was the caretaker of her family and friends and was always looking for ways to do something to make someone’s life a little easier. Her life journey led her through an almost 19-year battle with breast cancer during which she was a remarkable role model for all who knew her. She was ever-present at birthday parties, band competitions, ballet or piano recitals, karate demonstrations, choir performances, football games and other activities involving her grandchildren or great-grandchildren, frequently scheduling her treatment or doctors’ appointments around the activities to avoid missing them. Known for an unbelievable memory and vast knowledge store, Rita’s interests and talents were varied and included being a gifted pianist, tireless gardener, perennial student of Florida history and absolute expert bargainshopper. She enjoyed being a member of the Scimitars, the retired teachers’ group and the retired post office breakfast crew and was a frequent line-dancer at the Council on Aging. She will be greatly missed. In addition to her parents and husband, Rita was predeceased by her brother, Claude Broadus Bowles, Jr., and her daughter, Gwen Diane Pearson. She leaves behind to cherish her memory her daughter Pamela Pearson Mann (William); son-in-law Charles Keith Sellner; brothers John William Bowles (Linda) of Orange Park; Donovan Trammell Bowles (Kristine) of Green Cove Springs; granddaughters Summer Leigh Kleinfelder (Patrick) and Reed Ellis Mann; grandson William Pearson Mann; great-granddaughter, Alexis Autumn Butler; great-grandsons, Andrew Aidan Butler and Adam Pearson Kleinfelder, cousins, nieces, nephews, former students and friends. A celebration of Rita’s life was held Wednesday, March 3, at Craig Funeral Home Chapel in St. Augustine. Private burial will take place at Atkins Cemetery, Blountstown, on Friday, March 5. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Susan G. Komen for the Cure North Florida Affiliate, 4446 Hendricks Avenue #372, Jacksonville, FL 32207. GLORIA LUCILLE (SHIVER) PEEL Mrs. Gloria Lucille (Shiver) Peel, 73, of Blountstown, passed away Saturday, February 27, 2010, in Panama City. Gloria was born on October 22, 1936, in British Guyana and had lived in Calhoun and Bay counties for most of her life. She was a retired restaurant cook for the House of Seafood and was a homemaker. She was of the Catholic Faith. Gloria was preceded in death by her husbands, James Carl Shiver and James Peel.

And when the loss is sudden and unexpected, the shock can be overwhelming. No matter the circumstances of loss, there is always sadness, heartache, and emptiness. You have a right to grieve and to heal. Healing doesnt mean forgetting your loss. You never will. Rather, healing helps you to accept it as part of your life and move on. If youre one of the family members we have served, we would like you to know you are still in our thoughts. No matter how short, no matter how long, a life lived is never lost to those who remember. We would like to express our sincere appreciation to everyone who called, visited, sent cards or flowers, and brought food during our loved one's extended illness and recent homegoing. Special thanks to Dr. Misbah Farooqi, the nursing staff of Calhoun-Liberty Hospital and Covenant Hospice. Your competent and compassionate care of your patients and their families is a generous gift of God's grace to hurting hearts. The Family of William E.

Each participating county creates a display that reflects a unique aspect of their community. The Extension office has participated in these Fairs for many years. This year we highlighted the fact that, only through the dedication of community leaders and citizens, Blountstown was recently designated as a Gateway Community by the Florida Trail Association! http://www. floridatrail.org/options/Com munities/ Our trail runs along much of the former Marianna and Blountstown (M&B) Railroad, which served this area from 1909 to 1972. It connects the Panhandle Pioneer Settlement and the M&B Depot Museum with the Apalachicola River as it passes through Blountstown. Calhoun County’s segment of trail is also officially part of the larger Florida National Scenic Trail. Nature based tourism is growing in its importance to the economies of many Florida communities. So much so, that the Florida Greenways and Trails Council has unanimously supported a resolution recognizing the economic impact of Florida's trails and greenways. The resolution can be viewed at http://www.dep.state.fl.us/g wt/PDF/Resolution_economic_value.pdf. According to the State Office of Greenways and Trails (www.dep.state.fl.us /gwt/): • In 2009, Florida's official state trails and greenways experienced their highest annual visitation ever with over 4 million users, generating an estimated $95 million of economic impact. • Sixty five percent of Florida's more than 80 million visitors include naturebased activities in their travel (VISIT FLORIDA Research). • Trails are an "economic engine" for communities like Dunedin which has seen downtown business occupancy rates triple due to the impact of the Pinellas Trail. • Trails are the most sought after community amenity that Americans seek when buying a home (2008, National Association of Homebuilders). These trails also help preserve important habitat, and wildlife corridors throughout the state. So next time you are enjoying Calhoun County’s Blountstown Greenway, remember that you are connected to much more!

Letter to the Editor, To my family, my friends and to the Calhoun County Chamber of Commerce, THANK YOU! Thank you for the honor bestowed upon me Thursday, February 25, 2010, when I received the Volunteer of the Year Award. It is the most impressive award ever presented to me. I love my county, I love what I do. Nothing is more uplifting than to see things accomplished that I have been a part of. I am grateful for the opportunities given me by Calhoun County and its citizens!

I'm writing to express my belief that this facility is nothing short of a national treasure. I've had a passion for technology for years but it's not the kind with buttons or a mouse. There certainly are many historic sites in the United States and Florida but I'm not aware of a single one that is largely comprised of older structures in which the restorer personally knew the previous owners in such scale or volume. Not only is the Pioneer Settlement done exceptionally well, but it holds within it's gates something more valuable that the total sum net worth of it's parts, pieces and antiques. It represents our past which was primarily comprised of old fashioned hot, back breaking work that demanding improvising and required ingenuity. When children go through this facility they have the opportunity to learn that lumber didn't always come from a store nor did food until relatively recently come from a grocery store. It gives older adults a chance to reflect back and appreciate and remember too. This country has survived every attack except prosperity and convenience and the Pioneer Settlement is a resource to help others get regrounded to our past which represents a better message than any college degree is supposed to miraculously take care. I hope your newspaper and area will continue to support the Panhandle Pioneer Settlement and the potential that is there for real education. Respectfully, Keith Holcomb Orlando, FLTourist impressed with the Panhandle Pioneer Settlement Margie Mason extends thanks for "Volunteer of Year" award Kitty Wells Literacy DayAuthor Karen Spears Zacharias (pictured at right and above) was on hand at the Calhoun County Public Library Monday for the Kitty Wells Family Literacy Day. Spears signed copies of her latest book, Will Jesus Buy Me A Double-Wide?. City Manager James Woods read a proclamation declaring March 1, 2010 as Kitty Wells Day in Blountstown. Wells was the first librarian in Blountstown and was dedicated to putting books in the hands of every child. Present for the occasion were Wells' daughter, Barbara Clemmons, and grandchildren, Scott Clemmons and Kathie Bennett. coyotes develop a tolerance and endurance at being chased by the puppies. We then introduce them to our more experienced hounds. We do not set a full pack of hounds on the game trails, but a very small number. We have to slowly train both our dogs and the game we have them tracking.” Scott went on to explain that the game are very valuable to the pen and it is certainly not the goal to have them killed by the dogs. He told how the game are wormed each month and given food and water. In addition, escape routes are placed sporadically along the trail. “Our animals are treated with care and dignity where they can roam inside a confined space that protects them from disease, but also protects man from seeing them as a threat and killing them if they wander too close to domesticated animals or a farmer’s crops. Fox pens are protecting and caring for predatory animals, not harming them.” Scott emphasized that the game equal money to the hunters. “The last thing we want to happen is for a piece of game to be hurt. If an animal is hurt, that means money has to be spent in order to replace it.” He stressed to the FWC that “Fox pens are conservatory enclosures where animals are cared for, protected, trained and challenged to out maneuver and out think hounds chasing them. They are not places of death and murder, they are safe havens. The emphasis is on the chase, never the kill.” Watch for more details on the new stakeholders meeting.Fox hunt SUBSCRIBE TODAY!

Census Day – April 1, 2010 – is roughly 30 days away, and preparations are in full-swing. Activities to lay the groundwork for the nationwide effort to count everyone residing in the United States are visible across the country. Data from the 2010 Census will inform critical decisions – from congressional representation to the allocation of more than $400 billion annually in federal funds. Calhoun County residents can expect to see the 2010 Census under way through operational milestones including: • February 27 – Census workers began delivering preliminary letters to some areas of Calhoun County. • Week of March 8 – Advance notification letters will be mailed to alert households to look for the questionnaire and explain why it is important to participate. • Week of March 15 – Census questionnaires will be mailed out to households throughout the U.S., and Census-in-Schools Week begins. • Week of March 22 – Census Bureau will mail reminder postcards to households. • Thursday, April 1 – National Census Day: All responses should represent the households as it exists on this day. • Early May July – Census workers visit households that did not return a questionnaire by mail to conduct the census count in-person. Households served by the United States Postal Service will receive their forms in March 2010. Census workers will handdeliver forms through April 2010 in all other areas. One of the shortest census forms in U.S. Census history, the 2010 Census form asks 10 questions and takes about 10 minutes to complete. Every person living in the residence, both relatives and non-relatives, should be included on the form. People should be counted in the residence where they live and sleep most of the time. Census data are used to reapportion seats in the U.S. House of Representatives and for the subsequent redistricting of state and local governments. Census data also help to determine how more than $400 billion per year in federal funding is distributed to tribal, state and local governments for services that affect local communities. Specifically, Census data are critical in determining locations for new hospitals, improving schools, building new roads, expanding public transportation options and creating new maps for emergency responders. Census form answers are safe and confidential. By law, the Census Bureau cannot share respondents’ answers with anyone, including other federal agencies and law enforcement entities. All Census Bureau employees take an oath of nondisclosure and are sworn for life to protect the confidentiality of the data. The penalty for unlawful disclosure is a fine of up to $250,000 or imprisonment of up to five years, or both. Mailing back a form ensures an accurate count and lowers the cost of the 2010 Census by reducing the number of census workers who must go door-todoor to collect census data. Approximately $85 million is saved for every 1percent increase in mail participation. Additionally, the Census Bureau saves $60-$70 per Census form returned by mail. Questionnaire Assistance Centers (QAC) will be available to assist those unable to read or understand the census form. For those with visual impairments, the Language Assistance Guide will be available in large print and Braille. Deaf and hard-ofhearing persons who do not have access to Video Relay Service can call the TDD number, (866) 783-2010. In addition to these options, Language Assistance Guides will be available in 59 languages at all QAC locations.

That's why census takers are so important. A census taker is a person from your community who is hired by the Census Bureau to make sure that your neighborhood gets represented as accurately as possible. The census taker's primary responsibility is to collect census information from residences that have not sent back their 2010 Census form. Census 2010 workers wear an official identification badge. Census 2010 workers carry U.S. Census Bureau bags, making them easier to identify. The Census Bureau provides the census taker with a binder containing all of the addresses that didn't send back a filled out census form. The census taker then visits all of those addresses and records the answers to the questions on the form . If no one answers at a particular residence, a census taker will visit that home up to three times, each time leaving a door hanger featuring a phone number; residents can call the number on the hanger to schedule the visit. The census taker will ONLY ask the questions that appear on the census form. They will NEVER ask for your Social Security Number or personal banking information (such as account numbers or passwords). Your privacy and confidentiality is our priority! The census taker who collects your information is sworn for life to protect your data under Federal Law Title 13. Those who violate the oath face criminal penalties: Under federal law, the penalty for unlawful disclosure is a fine of up to $250,000 or imprisonment for up to 5 years, or both.

BY JASON WHITE The Benders traveled to Marianna to compete in Opening Bash, the first Travel Ball USA tournament. There were eight 9U teams in the tournament. The Benders went 1-1 on Saturday during pool play. On Sunday, they opened up with a win over the Lynn Haven Longhorns. Next, then played the Beach Bashers in the second game on Sunday. After falling behind 7 to 0 the Benders mounted a huge inning scoring 9 runs in a single inning to take the lead. They closed it out with a victory over the Bashers to advance to the championship game against the Niceville Eagles. They fell short to the Eagles in the championship game but coaches and parents alike were please with the weekend. In just the second tournament of the season this young team was able to make it all the way to the championship game. The coaches are very excited and look forward to a successful an exciting spring season.The County Record, MARCH 3, 2010, P P a a g g e e 6 6 SUBMITTED BY MIKE TUCKER In March of 1960, 50 years ago, the Blountstown Tigers won their first state championship in basketball. Many people in the community still remember the excitement and enthusiasm that team brought to the town and the entire county with the close and exciting games they played in winning the state Class B tournament in Gainesville that year. Under Coach Warney Adkinson, the team peaked at just the right time. The district tournament was in Bristol in 1960 and Blountstown won the tournament on a last second shot by Brooks Barber over a highly favored and very strong Malone team, 3735. At the state tournament in Gainesville the following week, the Tigers won three games all by nail biting scores of 59-57 over Inverness, then 69-67 over Ponce de Leon in sudden death double overtime. The final championship game was played against Zephyrhills and the score was 56-55 in favor of Blountstown. Earl Montgomery set two Class B scoring records at the state tournament in 1960 that stood for many years. Jerry Gates hit four free throws in the final 24 seconds in the Ponce de Leon game, as well as clutch playing in the other games that got the Tigers in the finals. The team record was 20 wins and 8 losses. They also won the Panhandle Conference Tournament and a Christmas tournament, making it four tournaments won. The team was led by Earl Montgomery, the only senior, who averaged 25.3 points per game and was the Big Bend Player of the Year in basketball. In addition, Coach Adkinson was selected Big Bend Coach of the Year. Other starters were Jerry Gates, Robert Long, Brooks Barber, and Mark Shiver. Other players on the team were Joe Mike McCaskill, Tommy Montford, Robert Davis, Jimmy Dykes, Charles Price, Ray Williams, and Jackie Fields. The School Board provided buses for students to attend the games in Gainesville and it seemed as if half the town was there that week to enjoy what everyone considered the Tigers’ magical ride of 1960. Many of us growing up in the 60s have carried the fond and vivid memories of those games and days for all these years and it is worth celebrating now the 50th anniversary of the Tigers’ first state championship. 50th anniversary of Tigers' first state basketball championshipMembers of the 1960 state championship basketball team included (front row, from left) Tommy Montford, Robert Long, Jerry Gates, Brooks Barber, Charles Price, (back row) Coach Warney Adkinson, Mark Shiver, Joe Mike McCaskill, Robert Davis, Earl Montgomery, Ray Williams, Jackie Fields, and (not pictured) Jimmy Dykes.Big River Longbeards to host Hunting Heritage BanquetThe Big River Longbeards Chapter of the National Wild Turkey Federation invites you to participate in a special 2010 Hunting Heritage Banquet on Thursday, Mar. 4.

FCCLA News by Cortney Harris On Thursday, February 18, Cortney Harris, Jeffrey Waldorff and Mrs. Marie Granger traveled to the state capitol in Tallahassee for CTE day on the hill. CTE stands for Career and Technical Education. They, along with many other groups from around Florida, set up their displays, and explained their organization and plans to many observers and state legislators. As the State legislators came around, we were able to explain to them the importance of Family and Consumer Science classes and FCCLA in today’s school curriculum. One of our National Officers for FCCLA, Jessica Hagood, also from Florida, was on hand to talk to the legislators. We also had students from Ponce De Leon High School come and help support the group. Two of our state officers, Kelsey Livesly and Kendra Bennett, were also there. We all had a great time as we got to meet many of the State Legislators and learn about many of the other groups from around Florida.

The students enjoyed going from center to center practicing important math skills in a fun way. There were eight teacher-directed centers including, Measurement—Pudding Parfait where students were able to practice their measuring skills and then were able to enjoy their creation by eating the pudding parfait. There was a Hershey’s Fractions center where students learned all about fractions with the help of a Hershey’s Chocolate bar. Another activity that students enjoyed was Measurement—Fruit by the Foot. Students practiced measuring length with the candy, Fruit by the Foot, and then were able to eat what they measured. There were many more “hands-on” math activities that parents could easily reproduce at home to help reinforce the math skills that their children are learning at school. Teacher Feature by Erin Fowler As a senior at Blountstown High School, I’ve always heard people talk about the “mean” teachers and the “cool” teachers; teachers that are boring and teachers that are exciting. One particular teacher that has never fell under anything but the cool and exciting category is Mrs. Samantha Taylor. Those who have had her class will agree that Mrs. Taylor is an excellent teacher. She makes learning fun and interesting simply because one can tell she truly loves what she does. I had the pleasure of getting to know her on a more personal level. Mrs. Taylor is a Blountstown native and a 1990 graduate from BHS. Her favorite subject in school was Mr. Leonard’s government class! She explained to me, “that’s what made me want to be a teacher; he made it come to life!” Upon hearing this, I was prompted to ask what she previously wanted to be when she grew up. With no hesitation she told me that she had wanted to be a Broadway Star, singing and dancing her way on stage in New York City. That would have been quite the experience for a small town girl. Once she graduated from high school, Mrs. Taylor went on to Chipola (where she said she had more fun than she should have!), then went on to Florida State University where she got the knowledge and skills to pursue her teaching career. At Blountstown Middle School we were first introduced to Mrs. Taylor, where she interned and taught for half a year. This year’s senior class was among the first classes she ever taught. Therefore, I believe that it is safe to say we hold a special place in her heart. My classmates and I enjoyed having her in eighth grade, but we will never forget those dreaded history packets! After BMS, Mrs. Taylor moved on to BHS and has taught there for four years! She teaches subjects in reading, history, government, and economics. Her favorite subject, however, has got to be history. My sophomore year, I had her history class, and it was, without a doubt, my favorite class because of all the cool projects we had to do. She made history more interesting and easier to understand for all of us. Shifting gears a bit and getting more personal, I asked what her favorite T.V. show is. She says, “As of right now, LOST.” ThisThe County Record, MARCH 3, 2010, P P a a g g e e 8 8 We’ve Got Tires for All Seasons...  TRUCKS  CARS  HEAVY EQUIPMENT See Us For Professional  Wheel Balancing  Oil Changes & More Hw. 20 West, Blountstown, FL 850-674-8784 MV#5496 Have Your Auto Rates Gone Up?

The Jackson County Master Gardeners are having their third annual Garden Fair and Plant Sale Saturday, March 13th, under the Pavilion on the grounds of the Jackson County Agricultural Complex. The complex is located at 2741 Penn Ave in Marianna. The Festival starts at 7:30 AM and goes until 2:00 PM or until they sell out; which ever happens first. The focus will be on growing your own food again this year. Available plants will include vegetables such as tomatoes and peppers, mushroom logs, bare root mayhaw trees, blueberry plants and much, much more. Also available will be gently used gardening books, painted gourds, tin men and other miscellaneous garden art. Drinks and snacks will be on hand as well. President Elect, Phillip Smith will be demonstrating the inoculation of oak logs with shitake mushroom spores. If you don’t feel comfortable doing your own, pre-inoculated logs will be available. The area will be filled with Master Gardeners all day so this is the time and place to bring that weed or problem plant and/or ask those nagging questions. For additional information call 482-9620 and ask for a Master Gardener. Ancestors of Benjamin H. Stephens, a confederate soldier who died in 1892, are pictured above as they gathered at the Rogers Family Cemetery in Bascom Saturday for a headstone dedication. The ceremony was presented by the Sons of Confederate Veterans with gravestones dedicated to four soldiers. Stephens' descendants include the Johnny and Jerry Bulzer family of Liberty County. At the age of 21, Stephens was enlisted in the military service of the Confederate State of America on March 30, 1861. He re-enlisted the following year at Pensacola and was listed as a paroled prisoner, receiving a $50 bounty payment due him. Corporal Stephens appears on a list of paroled Confederate prisoners captured by the U.S. Forces in Kentucky in the fall of 1862. He was placed in camp at Chattanooga, Tennessee, until declared exchanged on Jan. 11, 1863. He was hospitalized in Marietta, GA, later that year, then in Richmond, VA, the following year. Records show he was present near High Point, NC in April 1865 as a 3rd Sgt. in Company C-1st Regiment Florida Infantry. He was paroled at Greensboro, NC on May 1, 1865.The National 2010 Miss American Beauty Plus Teen Division winners have been announced.

Her favorite foods are sushi, Italian dishes, and, as her 3rd period leadership class will testify, the ‘tater logs from the Piggly Wiggly. She adds she pretty much likes anything. Her biggest pet peeve is people talking when she is trying to talk, which I am sure many people will have the same opinion with, “It’s very rude!” she states. Her favorite book is The Last Lecture by Randy Pausch, “It speaks to me”, she says. She mainly enjoys the fall season because, “that’s when I got married, and after a hot summer, it’s nice for things to be cool again.” After this response, I asked her about her husband and best friend. She has been married to Bryan Taylor (“Farmer Bryan”) for 11 happy years! To wrap things up, I asked, “What are two things you would like to do before you die?” This question seemed to stump her a bit. She explained to me that she had pretty much done everything she had wanted to do before the age of 19. Not many people can say that! Nevertheless, after reeling over the question for a while, she finally made up her mind and said she would really love to sail the Greek Islands for two weeks on a private sail boat and she would like to attend an opera at the Metropolitan Opera in New York City. These responses did not surprise me in the least because I know Taylor to be an adventurous sort of woman that likes to do things big. Apart from the things I knew of Mrs. Samantha Taylor, this interview was an entertaining and enlightening way of better understanding the kind of person she is. One thing I know for certain is that Mrs. Taylor is probably going to be the teacher I will miss the most.
