WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 3, 2010 104th Year, No. 10 BLOUNTSTOWN, FLORIDA 32424 50 CENTS (Including Tax) CRIMEAngry former employee arrestedBY KELLI PEACOCK DUNN News EditorAdisgruntled former employee was arrested for allegedly making threats to his ex-boss Thursday. Michael French, 20, has been charged with aggravated battery with a deadly weapon and battery on a law enforcement officer. According to the Liberty County Sheriff’s Office, authorities were called to Kyle Recycling in Hosford after French showed up a day after being terminated and threatened to cut the owner if he didn’t pay him. Maj. Steve Swier and Lt. James Lowery found French on a tractor. They were able to talk him down from the equipment and recovered a knife from his hip pocket. He reportedly had told the owner he was headed to get a gun from his vehicle before authorities arrived. Upon arrest, he allegedly kicked Maj. Swier in the face.

Henry D. Fain, 39, was taken into custody last Wednesday on charges of burglary, grand theft, and dealing in stolen property. According to the Calhoun County Sheriff’s Office, authorities thought they recognized Fain on a videotape that captured a man entering the mill the night of Oct. 18, then leaving with the welding leads. Investigation revealed Fain sold 136 pounds of copper welding leads two days later for $318. It was also learned that he made a $617 sale of copper three days prior to the mill burglary, including another set of welding leads believed to have been stolen from a local construction site. Fain is reportedly not a welder.  APPLIANCES  PAINT  LUMBER  BUILDING MATERIALS  TOOLS  FLOOR COVERING & MORE WALDORFF A CE H ARDWAR E 25615 N.

Senate Bill 550 has drawn widespread complaints across the state and several lawmakers have vowed to clean up their mess in a special session. The bill requires septic tank inspection and replacement requirements that reportedly will wind up costing Floridians thousands. Calhoun County Commissioners have issued a resolution that has been sent to Gov. Crist, along with Florida Department of Health officials. The resolution states that the bill “was originally intended to affect those properties with septic tanks in close proximity to Florida’s springs, but which was changed in the course of the legislative process to cover all properties with septic tanks wherever located within the state.” Commissioners say that, although they support protecting the springs, they don’t believe it is appropriate to impose the same strict regulation of septic tanks throughout Calhoun County, even to those septic tanks that are far removed from springs and have no impact on them.Commission opposes new septic tank law


The Blountstown Tigers defeated the Franklin County Seahawks Friday night at Bowles Field 34-0 setting up a showdown with the Liberty County Bulldogs for the District Championship Friday night in Bristol. The Tigers will enter the game 7-1 overall and 4-0 in the district and the Bulldogs are 8-0 overall and 4-0 in the district. It should be a battle to the finish with both teams playing well and the championship on the line. Head coaches Greg Jordan of the Tigers and Grant Grantham of the Bulldogs each expressed respect for the other’s program Monday. “Grant does a great job with his team,” Jordan said. “They’re strong on the line and will pound you with their running game. They are very disciplined and don’t make many mistakes. We will need to limit our penalties, not commit turnovers, tackle well and score when we have opportunities if we hope to beat them,” Jordan noted. Jordan added that he felt his Tigers had improved over the season. “We’ve really played well on defense and our offense has improved as the season progressed. We’ve found three or four guys who can carry the ball now so we’ve been able to spread our offense out more,” Jordan noted. Coach Grantham attributed his team’s success this year on hard work. “We had to replace 18 positions and these kids are extremely hard workers. They’re very coachable and I’m really proud of them,” Grantham stated. “We like to run the ball, but we’ll take what the defense will give us. People don’t realize it, but we’ve scored on 50% of our pass plays this year. We pass to try and score,” Grantham noted. Grantham said he felt Blountstown will be the best team his Bulldogs have faced in the regular season. “Greg does a good job with his team. They’re very talented, play solid defense and they throw it and run it well,” Grantham noted, The winner will host the winner of the Northview Bratt and Vernon game in the playoffs. The loser will travel to Freeport as the district runnerup. The Tigers had some costly penalties and a turnover in a first half Friday night that went by in a hurry. The Tigers last two possessions of the half ended with an interception and a fumble. The Tigers first drive of 67 yards in 9 plays ended with a Marquel Thomas 23 yard field goal and a 3-0 lead. Brandon Smith recovered a Seahawk fumble but the Tigers couldn’t convert the turnover into points. A 24 yard run by Smith set up the Tigers’ second score, a 16 yard scamper by Charles Buggs, Jr. Comer’s PAT missed, but the Tigers were ahead 9-0. Buggs came up with an interception for the Tigers, but once again the Tigers could not move and had to punt. The Seahawks picked off a Tiger pass, but the Tiger defense forced them to punt from their own 23. It wasn’t clear what happened (block or fumble), but Frankie Murrell ended up with the ball and ran it into the endzone for a touchdown. The PAT failed and the Tigers led 15-0. The Tiger offense got on track in the third quarter and put up two more scores. Midway the period Buggs ran for 30 yards and followed it up three plays later with his second 16 yard touchdown run. The two-point play failed, but the Tigers extended their lead to 21-0. After recovering a Seahawk fumble, Jawon Mosley broke loose for 43 to the one yard line and pushed his way in on the next play for a touchdown. Another two-point play failed, but the Tigers were in control, 27-0. After the defense held on fourth down at midfield, the Tigers marched 51 yards in 7 plays with Alexander Garrett scoring from the 3. Comer’s PAT kick was good and the final of 34-0 was posted. On the Seahawk’s final two possessions, Tiger defensive back Paul Mosley came up with two more interceptions to push his season total to 11. The Tiger defense held Franklin County to a meager 23 yards on 43 plays. Jawon Mosley had 8 tackles followed by Dowling Lee with 7 including 3 for losses. Alexander Garrett, Anthony Williams and Corey McClellan were each in on 5 tackles. Frankie Murrell, Marquel Thomas, Hunter Jordan, Ryan Hathcox, and Patrick Pitts were also in on defensive stops. Offensively, the Tigers rushed for 281 yards and passed for 73 for 354 total yards. Buggs completed 5 of 10 passes for 73 yards and gave up one interception. Brandon Smith led the rushing attack with 83 yards on 6 carries, followed closely by Jawon Mosley with 80 yards on 9 carries. Buggs had 70 yards on 8 carries. Thomas had 25 yards on 6 carries, McIntyre added 17 on 2 carries and Garrett and Jordan had 4 yards each. Be in Bristol early Friday night. Kickoff for the District Championship will be at 7:00 CT.The County Record, NOVEMBER 3, 2010, P P a a g g e e 3 3 by Blountstown Tiger Head Coach Greg Jorda n The BHS Tigers moved to 7-1 on the year with a 34-0 win over visiting Franklin County. The win guaranteed the Tigers a spot in the post season with the district title on the line next week. The win moved the Tigers to 4-0 in district play with one game left in the district. This week’s game at Liberty will be for the championship and the runner up spot outright. The Tigers sputtered on offense at times last week with costly penalties and a couple of turnovers. We still had around 350 yards of offense and scored 34 points and did not play our best. We will have to play better on offense this week to have a chance to win. Defensively, the Tigers DOMINATED Franklin County all night with a shutout. Franklin could only muster 23 yards of offense on 43 total plays for the night. Senior defensive back Paul Mosley continued his assault on opposing quarterbacks with 2 more interceptions to take his total to 11 for the year with 5 in the last two games. This week’s game will feature two teams familiar with each other as we played a spring game against each other with Liberty winning 14-12. The Bulldogs are 8-0 on the year and have pretty much dominated every opponent they have played. They score points in bunches and play stingy defense. It should be a hard hitting and exciting high school football game. The players will be working hard all week to prepare for this game. Make the short trip across the bridge as the Tigers and the Bulldogs tangle for the district title! Game time will be 7:00 cst/ 8:00 est, hope to see you there!! GO TIGERS!!!

It seems only fitting that a hero who did this and gave his life in his service should be commemorated on this National Holiday. A memorial service will be held in honor of Major Jerry Alan Sellers, US Air Force of Altha, on November 11, at 3:00 PM in Altha, on the Town Hall grounds. Major Sellers died in the service of his country in South Vietnam on December 25, 1967. Major Sellers is interred in Fort Logan National Cemetery in Denver, CO. Major Sellers grew up in Altha, FL the only child of Emily Ellen Sellers. His maternal grandparents were Hemsly Green and Jessie Pearl Hagan Sellers of Altha, FL. Major Sellers Uncle J. D. Sellers, USAF retired, was a life long resident of Altha, FL. He was survived by many relatives in Altha. Major Sellers was survived by his widow Jane I Bullard Sellers of Richland, WA, a son Jeffery Alan Sellers of Temecula, CA, two daughters Jessica Tonia Sellers Krahn of Boise, ID and Jennifer Lynn Sellers Davis of Richland, WA. Major Sellers graduated from Altha High School, Class of 1952 and Florida State University Class of 1956 and the USAF ROTC with a commission of 2nd Lieutenant. He trained as a pilot and piloted many of the USAF aircraft during his twelve years of distinguished and decorated service. Major Sellers’ final day of service was performed in Forward Air Control aircraft the O-2 in support of ground combat in Quang Tri Province near the DMZ of South Vietnam. In an effort to direct accurate fire on an enemy target in inclement weather and night fall he flew his aircraft low over the NVA force with landing lights on. The plane was hit by enemy ground fire and crashed resulting in death of Major Sellers and a crew member, Captain Richard Budka. Major Sellers’ action resulted in the extraction of a patrol of Marines who were in danger of death or capture at the hand of a superior force. His heroic actions on the day of his death resulted in the award of the Air Force Cross for valor in action against a hostile enemy of our country.

With nearly 65 artists from as far away as Cottonwood, Arizona, Dothan, Alabama, Panama City and Tallahassee the exhibit has captured the interest of professional and amateur artists from across the region and country. Some of the artists with work in the show are college students, some are known locally, and others work as professional artists. Calhoun County author, Darlene V. Earhart, and artists, Deborah Mazerac, Alison Slongo and Tamaria Joyner have work exhibited in this year’s show. DEBBIE MAZERAC Debbie Mazerac has always enjoyed being a little artistic in her spare time. She has been taking art with Mrs. Tamaria Joyner for six years. While she is not drawing, she works at the Calhoun County Senior Citizens office. Out of the many things that she has drawn, Debbie’s favorites are of animals, from donkeys to wolves. One could say that she is an animal person, and in addition to her drawing them, she owns three dogs. Overall, Debbie just loves drawing and the relaxation that it brings her. ALISON SLONGO Alison Slongo has been taking art class for six years with Mrs. Tammy Joyner. Ever since she was very young, she has enjoyed drawing pictures. She is now a student at Chipola, majoring in Physical Therapy. Alison has drawn quite a few pieces, and she doesn’t have a definite favorite type of subject to draw. She does, however, love trees and how they make her pictures look when she includes them. Although she doesn’t always have the time, she really loves every chance she gets of spending time drawing at Mrs. J’s art class. TAMARIA JOYNER Dr. Tamaria Joyner and her husband Dr. Paul Joyner have been a resident of Blountstown for 17 years. They purchased the old Blair house located on the corner of Veterans and Sherry Ave. A studio was added in 2001 which became Joy School where Mrs. Joyner has taught art, piano, and voice; and has operated a tutorial service for students of all ages and grade levels. Tamaria holds doctoral degrees in education and music. She has been an educator in schools in Florida, Georgia, Alabama, and South Carolina for 40 years. She has taught college prep classes and has had the opportunity to teach art, music and drama, building choirs, ensembles, choral groups, etc. in every school in which she has had the privilege to teach. She has been listed in WHO'S WHO AMONG AMERICA'S TEACHERS twice, and was voted teacher of the year. Dr. Joyner has served as a visual art instructor for VSA of Florida--starting her third year--teaching students that would normally not have the opportunity to experience art. Currently, Dr. Joyner has the privilege of teaching art at the Liberty County High School in Bristol. This year’s exhibit features more three dimensional art than previous years and requires a special display area for sculpture and other three dimensional items. Ceramic stoneware depicting African wildlife hand thrown, sculpted, and painted by Joshua “Ben” King, a graduate of Sneads High School, now living in Marianna is included in the exhibit. King and his family lived and worked in South Africa as missionaries for ten years where he became known as the “Pilgrim Potter.” He traveled with his potter’s wheel into villages, schools, and open markets and used his pottery creations to communicate the Gospel. King will be on hand during the Artists Reception to demonstrating his ceramic techniques. Other artists with three dimensional works in the show include Claude Reese, Maurice Fox, Debra Pelc Menacof, Robert Paradis, Dawn Prietz and Joel Scilley. Former Marianna resident, Jim Hayes shipped in three pieces of his work from his home in Cottonwood, Arizona. Many long term residents of Marianna grew up with Hayes and will recognize his work. Literature and visual art are combined in several displays as the written word is presented by author Darlene V. Earhart. Co-authors, Judy D. Brooten and Rachel M. Christopher are exhibiting their newly published book, The History of the First Presbyterian Church, Marianna, Florida 1835 2010, in a shadowbox featuring some of the historic photographs of the church. One of the most creative literary presentations is by watercolor artist, L. Steven Spak and author, Margena B. Myrick. Spak illustrated Myrick’s book filled with wonderful lessons learned growing up. Their display chronicles the path from sketch, to painting to a published, illustrated book. In addition to these literary displays, author Dale Cox will be at the Artists Reception to discuss his numerous books about the area. Painted canvas and paper stretch throughout the art center this year, as many artists chose to paint bigger, bolder, and brighter. Brilliant florals, whimsical creatures and intriguing contemporary designs delight the eye through the exhibit. On a more somber note, thought provoking sketches and drawings challenge the intellect while handsome drawings in charcoal and pen and ink capture scenes along the Chipola River or depict favorite places in the Panhandle, such as Sam Carnley’s pen and ink drawing of Two Egg, Florida and Marian Oswald’s watercolor of the old store in Two Egg. The variety of art coupled with the chance to watch artists demonstrating their techniques make this annual event an excellent outing for the entire family. Karen Roland, Chipley, will ask visitors to join her in painting a huge mural, Sam Carnley, Bascom, will teach the art of drawing in pen and ink and Michele Tabor Kimbrough, Marianna, will show how to apply watercolor to your newly created pen and ink drawing. Nancy Zurenda, Marianna, will demonstrate how to do needle felting, Jerry Whitson, Chipley will be painting outdoors in plein air and Dawn Prietz, Marianna, will be at her potter’s wheel. “We are fortunate to have Anita Pizza to play the piano for the reception again this year. Ms. Pizza is an internationally renowned pianist, who now lives in Marianna, and she is a gracious supporter of the arts throughout the region,” stated Menacof. Volunteers from through out the community work behind the scenes to make this annual event a reality. Members of the Chipola Regional Arts Association and The Artists Guild of Northwest Florida, Inc. will be at the reception to greet visitors and answer questions along with many exhibiting artists. Joanne Hester will once again have a pleasing array of refreshments for the reception. “Joan Stadsklev, the Director of the Fine and Performing Arts Department at Chipola College is a driving force behind this event. Without her support, and that of the college, Sunday Afternoon with the Arts would not be possible,” added Menacof. The Artists Reception at Chipola Arts Center is a free event on November 7 from 1 to 4 pm. It is a free event and everyone throughout the region is invited to attend. In addition to refreshments and live music visitors will have the opportunity to win a variety of door prizes including the grand prize of a beautiful piece of framed art donated by John Brewer Studios. The exhibit can be viewed Monday through Friday during regular college hours from November 1 to 12. Individuals and groups who would like to view the exhibit but cannot attend the public reception can see it by contacting the Fine Arts Department at Chipola college at 850-7182277. The fall exhibit and Sunday Afternoon with the Arts is co-sponsored by The Artists Guild of Northwest Florida, Inc., the Chipola Regional Arts Association and Chipola College.

A crowd of over 200 attended the event, opened by local banker Vicki Montford, Vice President. Mr. John Allison, Chairman of the Board of Home Bancshares, parent company of Centennial, presented information about how the bank has expanded in Florida over the past eight months. With no presence in the Florida Panhandle before July, Allison reported Centennial branches now stretched from Panama City to Tallahassee and many points in between, including two in Blountstown and one in Bristol. Coastal Community and Bayside were acquired in July and most recently Wakulla Bank became part of Centennial earlier this month. Centennial has always maintained a very strong capital position as well as a strong loan loss reserve. The bank just recently announced record third quarter earnings. “We are very excited to be in the these markets as you are very similar to our Arkansas communities,” Allison commented during the presentation. “You will see us active, supporting schools, local events, and our bankers volunteering just as Wakulla has done in the past.”The County Record, NOVEMBER 3, 2010, P P a a g g e e 6 6 Centennial representatives shown at last Tuesday night's reception include (from left) Vicki Montford, Vice President, Tracy French who is Florida Regional President, John Allison who is Chair of Centennial Banks, and Hugh Black of the Bristol branch.

Marti Coley honored by Panhandle Library CoopThe Panhandle Public Library Cooperative and the Florida Library Association recently presented Representative Marti Coley with a plaque of appreciation. PPLCS has struggled for public library funding since its founding in 1992. However, this past year was critical and the upcoming legislative year promises to be just as challenging. When confronted with the impact that the proposed elimination of State Aid to Libraries would have on the libraries in District 7, she took action. Long after other legislators had gone back home, Representative Coley remained at the Capitol fighting to restore funding for all rural libraries in Florida. She was present in virtually every meeting between the House and Senate budget Chiefs. Many thanks to Rep. Coley for her efforts!

To the Editor: When I was going to school, a popular teacher was one who gave little or no homework, made tests easy, and generally tried to be our friend. As an adult, the teachers I remember are those who taught me, regardless of how unpopular it made him or her. In my 13 years at Blountstown schools, I recall the faces (and most names) of all my teachers. But Mr. Hanna and Ms. Hayes, my 6th grade teachers, are among the few that I now value and remember with clarity and gratitude. Mr. Hanna, I'm sure I'm not the only one to say 'thank you' for teaching me the multiples of 7. Fizzbuzz was a creative way to teach a difficult topic. I can picture all of us 6th graders lined up around the walls of the pod, being eliminated one by one for saying (or not) 'fizz', 'buzz', or 'fizzbuzz' on the correct digits. Until your guidance, math was fun for me, but it didn't hold much interest. You added the spark that stimulated my success in math and eventually lead me into a career as a successful computer programmer. Thank you for your recollections and for making a difference in my life. Rusty Wyrick 6th grade, 1974-75 To the Editor, Two years ago, after spending 33 years first as a law enforcement officer, then as an attorney, I was flattered when newly elected State Attorney Glenn Hess asked me to supervise his offices in Calhoun and Gulf counties. I was given one mandate, “Treat everyone fairly and do the right thing.” I have done my best to live up to that mandate. I knew before I arrived that there were wonderful people here. I just didn’t know how wonderful. I cannot begin to express the gratitude Ifeel toward all of those who made me feel at home here (and helped prevent me from screwing up too badly). I have special thanks for all of the courthouse personnel, including the judges and their assistants, the bailiffs, court reporter, those in the clerk’s office and all of the other offices here, including the maintenance staff. I appreciated the efforts of law enforcement and for the ethical, professional, and zealous representation provided by the Public Defender’s Office. Of course, then there is the staff at the State Attorney’s Office who are now more family than employees. The efforts of all these agencies work together to insure that everyone has a fair shake in our judicial system. Most of all, I’d like to thank the citizens of Calhoun and Gulf counties. Every place I have gone I have been greeted with courtesy and warmth. Occasionally, folks have questions and concerns, and usually listen and understand when I explain the conflicts and limitations we deal with in the judicial process. I am most impressed that even when people disagree, folks around here will rally when someone is hurt or in need. Well, after these two years, I have been reassigned to help train our young attorneys in Bay County. Once again, I am flattered to have been asked to take such an important assignment (and hope that Idon’t screw it up). However, it is terribly hard to leave here. I promise to visit often and I will miss all of you. Thank you again. Respectfully, Bob Pell Assistant State Attorney To the Editor: When we think of healthcare breakthroughs, we usually think of new surgical procedures or miracle drugs, not hospice care. Hospice’s story, however, is unique and remarkable. In just over three decades, hospice has quietly revolutionized the way people die in America by honoring wishes and bringing peace, dignity and comfort to millions of patients and families. Hospice focuses on palliative measures rather than curative. One of the principles that make hospice care unique is that the patient and family is one unit of care. November is National Hospice Month a time when we at Emerald Coast Hospice honor our patients and families, and recognize the contributions of professionals and volunteers who provide hospice care. Emerald Coast Hospice provides direct care, support and education to the residents in our community to ensure comfort, dignity and choice during lifethreatening illness or the transition of dying. When patients and families choose hospice, they receive care unlike any other. The hospice team treats pain and symptoms with aggressive medical care and eases the emotional and spiritual suffering of patients, families and loved ones. At Emerald Coast Hospice our mission is to provide compassionate end-of-life care for patients and families through clinical excellence and uncompromising service. This November please remember the hospice professionals and volunteers who are making a difference every day in the lives of our community’s terminally ill and their families. They truly are the heart and soul of hospice. Ronni Bowen RN Account Executive To the Editor, In October, the Department of Health and Human Services closed its "comment period" for the new regional health insurance exchanges -a major component of the Obama health reforms. As state officials implement their plans, they should strive to ensure that these exchanges don't crowd out free market insurance mechanisms. While the options available on these exchanges will work well for many people, a substantial slice of the patient population will find them unsuitable. Preserving a vibrant private insurance market in addition to the exchanges will maximize choice and enable people to find the insurance plan that best fits their particular needs. When the President said that people who are happy with their insurance "can keep it," we should keep him to his word. Choice is crucial. The thinking behind the exchanges is sound. Large employers can negotiate good health insurance rates because they have a big workforce to spread risk. Individuals and small businesses don't have that advantage, and therefore they end up paying significantly higher rates than their larger counterparts. Exchanges will help level the playing field. Participating insurers will offer a standard set of plans that must conform to specific government standards. Groups of people that typically have difficulty finding affordable insurance, including the selfemployed, unemployed, and smaller firms, can buy the standard plans through the exchange. In this way, these groups can pool their purchasing power and get lower rates. The federal government will also provide subsidies for lower income consumers. Exchanges go live in 2014. If a state hasn't started the process of establishing one by 2013, the federal government will take over the responsibility and run the exchange itself. The healthcare law imposes an array of legal requirements on insurers that participate in the exchanges. Insurers must include a package of to-bedefined "essential" benefits in all plans offered. Insurers are also prohibited from charging deductibles exceeding $2,000 for individuals and $4,000 for families. The exchanges only require insurers to offer two types of coverage. "Silver" plans covering 70 percent of all medical costs. And "Gold" plans covering 80 percent. Many consumers will benefit from these newfound choices. But not everyone will find them suitable. There are people who will want even more expansive coverage, say a "Platinum" plan covering 90 percent of costs. And there will be patients who want to risk higher out-ofpocket expenses for lower upfront charges, and are happy with a "Bronze" plan covering just 60 percent of costs. And still there are other demographic groups who won't find any of these options ideal. The young and healthy typical don't require much medical care, and just want catastrophic coverage in case of an emergency. As is, the exchanges aren't required to offer these other options. And the federally mandated minimum benefits effectively prohibit the exchanges from offering cheap, stripped-down plans. Healthcare coverage isn't one-size-fits-all. There needs to be an insurance market outside the government exchanges to ensure people with unique plan preferences can get the coverage they want. The new insurance exchanges will reduce the number of uninsured, and should decrease the price of coverage for many patients. But policymakers and private healthcare stakeholders need to work together to ensure that the exchanges don't become the only way to get health insurance. The more options patients have, the more likely they are to get the coverage that best fits their individual medical needs and financial means.

The County Record, NOVEMBER 3, 2010, Page 9 Altha School NewsBook Fair Nov. 8-12; Cats' Cuisine serving November 11 BlountstownElementary School NewsBY KELLI PEACOCK DUNN News EditorFour Blountstown High School FFA members stood on a stage in Indiana just over a week ago and accepted an award for being the best farm business management team in the nation. Back home, community members who pulled together to help get them there were beaming with pride. The story of how Harlea Perdue, Travis Pittman, Stewart Herndon, and Blake McGraw wound up with the top prize would give even the grittiest cynic a tear in the corner of their eye. Over the summer, Blountstown’s state winning team knew they needed to prepare for nationals. School officials were interviewing for a new agriculture teacher so they were on their own for the time being. Karis Smith, who serves as FFA President at BHS, knew the team couldn’t wait until someone was hired to get competition ready. She dialed Robert Wiltse, a former teacher who hadn’t stepped foot in an agriculture classroom in 25 years, and asked him to help. His initial thought? “I can’t do this. I struggled with it,” he recalls, “And I said, ‘Well, you eat an elephant one bite at a time.’” When Wiltse spread out some old national tests to see what was involved in the competition, he was overwhelmed to say the least. There were 190 different areas the team needed to study. He knew he needed to pull in more people and that’s when the community effort was launched. “I went to local banks and got Verena Nix at the Credit Union who agreed to help them,” says Wiltse. “She spent three hours with them on financial statements. Kay Pittman at Bank of America explained investment analysis with them for two or three hours. They spent a couple hours with Frank Stone at the Coop in Altha understanding how cooperatives work and the practical side to agriculture. I took them to Oglesby Plants International and they spent two hours going through and understanding the process of what Oglesby does, mainly management and marketing. Steve “Beaver” Yoder took the kids out to his farm and went through cattle and different crops. Then they went up to Wesselhoeft’s Dairy. Accountant Bud Guilford worked with them on understanding farming tax laws and depreciation. Terry Stone at the Property Appraiser’s Office worked with them on understanding legal descriptions on property and figuring out how many acres people own.” Next stop was the Calhoun County Extension Office where Extension Agent Whitney Cherry helped the team reach experts around the nation. “Polycom is a little machine in the Extension Office,” Wiltse explains. That little machine connected the students with professors at three universities. “It was just like talking face to face with them,” says Wiltse. Every Monday afternoon for several weeks, the business management team had three hour sessions at the Polycom machine getting an extensive economics education. Dr. Walter Prevatt of the University of Auburn taught them how to use the futures market to learn how to trade cattle. Dr. Alex White at Virginia Tech explained how to utilize financial statements. Dr. Michael Gunderson from the University of Florida gave lessons in budgets and making sound business decisions. “It was fourth year college economics,” Wiltse remarks. The dedication by everyone involved was evident. The business management team spent four hours on Mondays, two hours on Tuesday and two hours on Thursdays studying with Wiltse and community volunteers. “Then I would give them a test that would take at least that much time to do and bring back to me,” says Wiltse, who contacted Iowa, North Carolina, Georgia and Kansas to exchange state tests so the BHS students could know what their competition knew. During the last three weeks before the trip to Indiana, students would spend at least three hours on weekends taking national tests nine years worth before it was over. “We’d meet on Monday, go on Polycom and if they had questions about anything on the tests they could ask a professor.” After devoting countless hours to helping the students prepare, the professors who had spoken to them online for weeks were blown away. “Wow! Simply, wow! These students are really set to go,” Dr. Gunderson told Wiltse. “Their level of knowledge of supply and demand far exceeded any expectations that I had. They are more well prepared to answer those questions than many of our freshmen would be after having taken introduction to agricultural economics.” When they arrived in Indiana, new BHS Ag teacher Joanna Everett, BHS Vice Principal Debbie Williams, Assistant Superintendent Vicki Davis, School Board Member Kelly King, and FFA President Karis Smith helped them study the night before competition. Back home, folks were on pins and needles until the results were announced. Wiltse was traveling with his job when he got the call about the win. He pulled off the road to get the news and admits he got a little teary eyed when he heard they’d captured the national championship. As he says, “This community came together and they didn’t let what they couldn’t do get in the way of what they could do.” The BHS farm business management team reacts after learning they've won first place in the nation at the FFA Convention in Indianapolis.Community pulls together to help ag team bring home title"They didn't let what they couldn't do get in the way of what they could do."-Robert Wiltse Scholastic Book Fair Altha School will host a Scholastic Book Fair on November 8 12 in the media center.

The Power Unlimited Strength Ministry Team made a very impressive visit to the BHS campus. Three brawny, muscle bound men captivated the student body as they demonstrated their feats of strength by rolling up frying pans, bending steel bars, tearing through a 1000+ page phone book with their bare hands and producing a human helicopter with two students, an iron rod, and one hefty strong man spinning them around. Also, on stage was the motivational speaker Mrs. Jennifer Beckam, and though she did not participate in any of the strength feats, she mightily spoke to each student encouraging them to stay tobacco and drug free. The students were certainly captivated and entertained. BHS 11th grader Megan Layfield says, “They were cool, they had a lot of spirit and were motivating!” and Seniors Sam Hurtado and James Roney both agreed that the Strength Team was impressive and inspirational!

The County Record, NOVEMBER 3, 2010, Page 14 Making This RightBeaches Claims CleanupEconomic Investment Environmental RestorationHealth and Safety Wildlife 2010 BP, E&PFor assistance, please call: To report impacted wildlife: (866) 557-1401To report oil on the shoreline: (866) 448-5816To make spill-related claims: (800) 440-0858” For information visit: My familys been “shing for eight generations. Its just a way of life. Thats why weve got to get this cleaned up.ŽPete Floyd Commercial Fisherman, Pascagoula, MississippiWhen the spill hit, a lot of people said it would be the end. BP said they would try to make this right. But how was an energy company going to help a “sherman? Putting People to Work The “rst thing they did was rent my boat and hire me to help with the cleanup. They made up my losses so I could pay my bills. And they worked with all kinds of people here from “shermen and shrimpers to restaurant owners. It helped us keep our businesses open. And it helped us make ends meet so we could support our families. Staying for the Long Haul When they capped the well in July and “nally killed it, we were all relieved. But would BP stick around? Well, they did. The beaches are clean and were back on the water “shing so things are getting a whole lot better. They are still here and have said they will keep working for as long as it takes. Getting Back to Normal BP asked me to share my story with you to keep you informed. If you still need help, please call 1-866-448-5816 or go to If youre wondering what you can do, well … the next time youre shopping, buy a little Gulf seafood. There is none “ner.
