Matt Vincent, 20, was at WhitÂ’s Auto Repair when the accident occurred. Â“We were going to cut the door open on a wrecked truck to get the seats out,Â” Vincent explains. Â“We had a torch and there was a little flame burning. They told me to grab some water. I grabbed a jug and tossed it at the flame and they shouted, Â‘Gas!Â’ but it was too late.Â” Vincent sustained first and second degree burns on both arms, his stomach, chest and around his face. His father, Terry, was also at the shop and shouted, Â“Snatch his shirt off!Â” John John Cauley grabbed the shirt and put out the flames. Â“That and the grace of God saved him,Â” says VincentÂ’s mother, Marilyn. He was treated at the scene by EMS and went to his local doctor for further care.

A two-county search ended in the arrests of Nicholas Norris Kerr, charged with possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, discharging a firearm in public, and possession of less than 20 grams of marijuana, and Edward Norris Young, 24, charged with possession of marijuana with intent to distribute. According to the Blountstown Police Department, Kerr allegedly exchanged words with his ex-girlfriend and her father at a Fern Street residence. The father told Kerr to leave and he reportedly left in a pink Lincoln, followed by his brother, Edward, who was driving a green Honda. The two men reportedly turned down a nearby street, exchanged vehicles, and Kerr is accused of taking off in the Honda and firing shots in the air at the intersection of Martin and Thomas. Kerr was located a short time later and told Major Rodney Smith there was a gun in the vehicle and gave consent to a search. A loaded .308 semi automatic rifle and .38 revolver were discovered. A glass jar of marijuana was also found. Liberty County authorities caught up with Edward on Smith Circle in Bristol. A plastic bag with approximately 125 grams of marijuana was recovered from the Lincoln he was driving.

On Dec. 13, just weeks before being sworn in to begin his four-year term, Sheriff Flanders was gunned down by J.P Chance, a farmer who sharecropped land with him just south of Ten Mile Creek near SheltonÂ’s crossroads.

Arrested were James Michael Dawsey, 18, Louis Cameron Rogers, 18, Christopher Allen Melton, 19, and Ronnie Allen Davis, Jr., 19, along with the girl unidentified due to her age. All were charged with burglary of an unoccupied structure. Rogers was also charged with grand theft. Liberty County authorities say the teenage girl told the four guys about a safe in the office at the Liberty County landfill. The five of them are accused of burglarizing the office on Sept. 28, taking over $1100 in cash and checks. Evidence at the scene and a tip on a vehicle possibly used in the crime led investigators to the group. After questioning, four confessed with Rogers being the only one denying involvement.

Two years after having an artist create a rendering of what the downtown district could look like with some minor cosmetic improvements, Blountstown Main Street members decided it was time to take the bull by the horns and put the plans in place. With the economy in a downward spiral, businesses simply didnÂ’t have the money to make some of the improvements, so Main Street members voted to use funds raised for a Â“Paint the TownÂ” project. Building owners signed contracts agreeing to maintain the colors, Main Street picked up the tab for the supplies and labor, then the paint hit the walls! After the new splash of color downtown, it was time for some additional touches. Awnings were an obvious choice. Main Street has had an awning grant program in place for two years, but only a couple businesses initially took part. After the paint project, the business owners were excited about making even more improvements so several signed up for an awning. Through the awning grant program, Main Street paid 40 percent of the awning cost up to $1000. ItÂ’s amazing how much difference a fresh coat of paint and a beautiful awning can make!

We are celebrating a great year at the CalhounLiberty Ministry Center and a huge part of our success has been the support weÂ’ve received from you Â– our community. So, a huge part of our celebration is saying, THANK YOU! Thank you to everyone who has given of your time, your resources, your financial support and your prayers to help this dream become a reality. While we are celebrating the success of the past 12 months, our story actually begins about 2 years ago when a group of local pastors began meeting together to pray for each other, for their congregations and for our community. Out of these monthly meetings they began to recognize needs in our community and realized that if they pooled their efforts, resources and influence they might be able to help alleviate these needs for others. As they talked and prayed about these needs and the possibilities for how to meet them the vision for a community ministry center was born and began to grow. On November 17, 2009 the Calhoun-Liberty Ministry Center opened with the mission of meeting those needs. Your support of The Ministry Center Store has not only provided the funding (through sales) to cover all the operating expenses for the center itself, but has also funded the distribution of 75,000 pounds of food Â– that is more than a semitruck load of food to those in need. In addition, the partners and volunteers of the Ministry Center have helped to improve the lives of over 2,200 families. While those numbers are staggering, the exciting thing is that the needs of individuals are met individually and with dignity. We are so pleased with what has been done in this last year to serve our communities, but we believe there is more we can do. We have a dream to see the Ministry Center provide personal counseling for those who need the wisdom and guidance of a Godly counselor. We hope to make financial counseling available in the near future, part of which would include budgeting workshops so that folks can learn a better way to handle the resources they have. We are also working toward opening a free clinic, where local health care professionals will give their time and skill to serve those in need. We want to go beyond providing for immediate needs and helping those in crisis, we hope to help people learn life skills that will help keep them from crisis. These dreams are big and to some may seem overwhelming or even impossible. So, how are these dreams possible? How did the prayer of a few pastors a couple of years ago become a Ministry Center that is helping people all over Calhoun and Liberty Counties? How can we dream about reaching and doing more? Because together we can do what we could never do alone. Because generosity inspires generosity. Because we canÂ’t outgive God. Right now about a dozen local churches financially support the efforts of the Ministry Center each month. In addition to local contributions we have partnered with other organizations like Community Action, Catholic Charities, Second Harvest of Big Bend, Senior Citizens, and Department of Children and Families. And countless volunteers give of their time, their resources, their skills and energies to help others they may never meet. Again, we want to say a huge thank you to those of you whoÂ’ve given so much over the past 12 months to help turn the burden of a few pastors into the burden of a community. A ministry becomes a movement when people set aside their own personal preferences and comforts and choose to live and give beyond themselves.

Next, the students and guests watched an extraordinary patriotic video created by a former BHS student, Tabinda Syed, which was followed by an incredibly personal speech given by 12th grader Montoya Garrett telling the story of her father serving in Iraq. This was certainly exceptional because her father, CW3 Chief Warrant Officer, Teddy Garrett, was seated in the audience.

This incredible recognition truly gave this assembly a very personal touch and a renewed appreciation towards those who served and who where family members of veterans! The BHS Male Chorus performed under the direction of Mrs. Edewaard and seniors Kristen Peacock and Hayley Sumner sang Â“Impossible DreamÂ” as Cherie Baggett accompanied on the piano.

OBITUARIES The Â“30 Days of Amazing Children: Explore Adoption!Â” initiative presenting children in foster care who dream of being adopted by forever families has been unveiled by Florida Department of Children and Families Secretary George Sheldon and FloridaÂ’s Chief Child Advocate Jim Kallinger in honor of National Adoption Month. While private forms of adoption can cost upwards of $30,000, adopting one of Florida's children in foster care costs little or nothing. The benefits include a monthly adoption subsidy for the family, health benefits for the child, and free college tuition at a Florida public university, community college or vocational school. The federal adoption tax credit recently was raised to $13,170 per child and is refundable, meaning eligible taxpayers can receive it regardless of whether or not they owe taxes for that year.

There was no intent on my part that included anything in reference to your office. My remarks concerning Statute 125.66 was directed at the County Commission of your county. I am sorry that you believed that it was a remark toward your office. Your office is simply the office of the Clerk of The Court. It has no policy making responsibilities. The Clerks office is exactly that. It keeps records, it maintains Court dockets, and serves the County Commission in numerous ways. Statute 125.66 is a function of the County Commission, not the Clerk of the Court. The vehicle used to deliver letters to private property owners is a function of the Clerk's Office by direction from the County Commissioners as well stated in the statute itself. Again, let me apologize for any confusion. Personally, I find your office very efficient.

A one-of-a-kind program of scholarships, mentors, and hope for low income youth, this guidance begins in the 9th grade. Promising youth and their parent sign a contract of commitment for monitoring and mentoring until graduation. This ultimate to-college plan is working, has been effective, and currently, there are ten scholarships in place. Donations for funding the program are matching, and following, this is an excellent resource for individuals and service organizations in the community who wish to help and assist in an effective way. Nothing seems to rewarding and vital as our future generation being assisted toward college, becoming skilled in a profession, and ultimately becoming resourceful adults in the community. All attending the meeting enjoyed Barbara's sharing of information. She was an effective and very informative speaker who knew her subject well. On Oct. 16, a Fall Workshop was held in Wewahitchka. Jessie Mae Price, President; Peck Eldridge, Arts & Crafts; and Connie Williford, Secretary, represented the chapter at this informative meeting. This gathering of the eight District 11 counties was high energy and mini-workshops presented vital and worthwhile subjects. Effective public speaking, how to delegate effectively, leadership, goalsetting, conflict resolution were but a few of the themes presented.

The Blountstown Tigers completed a very successful regular season Friday night at Bowles Field with a 28-14 victory over Baker. With the thrilling victory over Liberty County last week still dancing in their heads and the first round matchup with Northview Bratt looming next week, many were afraid the Tigers wouldnÂ’t be able to concentrate on Baker. It wasnÂ’t their best performance, but the Tigers put enough points on the scoreboard and stiffened on defense when needed to secure the win. Now the Tigers can concentrate totally on the Northview Bratt Chiefs who also completed at 9-1 season last week. NorthviewÂ’s only lost came midway their schedule to Freeport, 27-13, who will host Liberty County Friday night. Northview defeated Vernon two weeks ago, 4719, to clinch their district runners-up spot in the playoffs. They beat Baker 39-36 during the season. Â“We will have to play our best game of the year to beat them,Â” coach Jordan stated this week. Â“TheyÂ’ve averaged 36 points a game against district opponents. TheyÂ’re big on the line, have a dual threat quarterback and some good runningbacks. They donÂ’t give up much on defense. We will have to eliminate penalties and turnovers, tackle well and score every chance we get,Â” Jordan noted. The Tigers fell behind early to Baker, 6-0, after a 28 yard sweep play reached the endzone. That sweep play with the quarterback following some big, pulling linemen, picked up big chunks of yardage for Baker. After a short kickoff, Marquel Thomas broke free for 38 yards and Jawon Mosley found an opening and raced 16 yards for a touchdown. Two plays and Marquel ComerÂ’s PAT and the Tigers were ahead 7-6. On BakerÂ’s next possession, Dowling Lee and Jawon Mosley sacked the quarterback and forced a fumble that was recovered by Frankie Murrell at the Baker 5. On third down, quarterback Charles Buggs, Jr. passed to Hunter Jordan crossing in the endzone for a touchdown. ComerÂ’s kick gave the Tigers a 14-6 lead. In the second period, Paul MosleyÂ’s punt return to the Baker 33 set up the TigersÂ’ next score. On first down, Brandon Smith found daylight, turned on the jets, and raced to the endzone. ComerÂ’s PAT moved the Tigers ahead, 21-6. Paul MosleyÂ’s twelfth interception of the season ended BakerÂ’s next scoring threat. Baker failed to score early in the third period after reaching the Tiger 13. On their second possession, Anthony Williams came up with a fumble recovery for the Tigers. After reaching the Baker 36, Buggs found Paul Mosley behind the secondary for a touchdown. ComerÂ’s kick pushed the Tigers ahead, 28-6. Baker scored on their next series with a 41 yard pass play. A two-point pass made the score 28-14. Baker rushed for 122 yards and passed for 145, but had trouble in the red zone against the Tiger defense. Dowling Lee and Alexander Garrett led the Tigers with 8 tackles each. Cory McClellan had 7 tackles followed by Paul and Jawon Mosley with 6 each. Frankie Murrell had 5 tackle. Buggs had 4 tackles and intercepted a Baker pass in the endzone to stop a Baker scoring threat. Marquel Thomas led the Tigers with 63 yards on 3 carries followed by Jawon Mosley with 53 on 10 carries and Brandon Smith with 35 on 7 carries. Kickoff for the playoff game with Northview Bratt Friday night at Bowles Field will be 7:30 CT.

The win gave our seniors a much deserved win on senior night. Baker played a very tough and physical game for 48 minutes. The Tigers trailed 6-0 early then ran off 28 unanswered points. The Tigers lead 21-6 at half, then scored to make it 28-6. Baker scored late to make the final score 2814. I would like to take a moment to wish Coach Kellogg from Baker a happy retirement. Anyone that makes it 36 years in this business deserves a happy ending. Coach Kellogg is a class act and we wish him nothing but the best. The Tigers will be at home against a 9-1 Northview team in the first round of the playoffs. Northview lost to Freeport in Freeport earlier in the year and never looked back. They are averaging 36 points a game and giving up 14 per game in their 8 district games. They are the most complete team we will have faced this year. They have a dual threat at QB that runs and passes equally well. They have very good running backs and a big and physical offensive line. Defensively, the last few games they have given up 0,0, and 7 points. They run a 3-4 scheme and have quality players at every position. Northview is a team we played home and home in 07 and 08. We lost at their place in 07 and won at home in 08. We will have to play our best game of the year on both sides of the ball to have a chance to win. We have to eliminate penalties that are drive killers. Most of all what we need are the stands to be full this week. There was standing room only at Liberty two weeks ago. We need to pack Bowles Field for the firsr round of the STATE PLAYOFFS!! Come show your support for these Tigers as we try to advance in the playoffs. Kickoff will be at 7:30 local time for all playoff games. Hope to see you at Bowles Field!!

ItÂs just a way of life. ThatÂs why weÂve got to get this cleaned up.ÂŽPete 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 Â“sherman? Putting People to Work The Â“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 Â“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 Â“nally killed it, we were all relieved. But would BP stick around? Well, they did. The beaches are clean and weÂre back on the water Â“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 bp.com. If youÂre wondering what you can do, well Â… the next time youÂre shopping, buy a little Gulf seafood. There is none Â“ner.
