The airport is located within the Calhoun County Industrial Park which has been designated by the Governor’s Office of Tourism, Trade, and Economic Development (OTTED) as the site of the Northwest Florida Catalyst Project.

The old log cabin fondly known by locals as "The Clubhouse" is being beautifully restored at the Panhandle Pioneer Settlement. The cabin once stood on the Blountstown High School campus and had nearly fallen in when it was rescued by the Settlement. In the top photo, Beverly Veress works on the main room in the cabin where wood floors have been brought back to life. Above, Elizabeth Canestro, who relocated to the panhandle from Venezuala, works on the stove in the new kitchen. There are still many needs at the Clubhouse. The wish list includes 10 round tables at $100 each, 100 chairs at $23 each, large refrigerator and sink. Any and all help is appreciated. To make a donation, contact the Settlement at 674-2777.The County Record, JULY 14, 2010, P P a a g g e e 2 2 CALHOUN & LIBERTY COUNTYSHERIFF'S LOGC C A A L L H H O O U U N N C C O O U U N N T T Y Y J J u u l l y y 5 5 : : David Jason Glowatsky, DUI J J u u l l y y 6 6 : : Troy Nichols, trespass after warning; George David Peters, Sr., tampering with evidence J J u u l l y y 7 7 : : Michael A.

For further directions and information on the historic buildings at the Settlement go to: A special fund for donations has been set up at the Superior Bank for Phillip and Rachel Hatcher. The name of the fund is “Hatcher Medical Fund”. Rachel is pregnant with a baby boy, named Bryson, who has been diagnosed with a rare condition in developing babies that causes the kidneys not to function or in some to even be born without kidneys. By all medical standards, Bryson is a healthy baby with kidneys with very little, if any, function. The best chance for the survival of their baby was given at the Miami University Hospital in Miami, Florida. This week on July 16 he will be delivered by cesarean section in Miami where he will undergo dialysis immediately if needed and placed on a donor list for new kidneys. This will be a very expensive trip and Phillip and Rachel do not know how long they will have to stay or how many trips it will take before their baby comes home, not to mention, the costs that they will incur that insurance does not cover. If you would like to help this young couple with these expenses, you can donate at any Superior Bank by naming the fund. If you have any questions, this fund is administrated by Allan Nichols, Pastor of the Altha Church of God and he can be reached at 762-8294. Baby to be delivered this week; fund established for HatchersTalent show at Pioneer Settlement on July 23If you watch any television at all, you’ve most likely been seeing advertisements recently featuring lovably strange gibberishspeaking yellow blobs. These funny little creatures are known as minions, and they are the co-stars of the fun, fast, and wildly inventive new animated film from Universal Pictures, Despicable Me Steve Carell (who stars opposite Paul Rudd in the new buddy comedy Dinner for Schmucks opening July 30) voices the film’s bignosed, Scandinavianaccented protagonist, Gru, a second-rate supervillain living in a typical American suburb. After learning that his nerdy new rival Vector (Jason Segel) has stolen the Great Pyramid of Giza, Gru, who dreams of being the world’s most famous supervillain, hatches a dastardly plot to steal the moon before Vector can steal it. The plan faces a major setback when he is unable to procure the necessary shrink ray and is thus denied a loan from the Bank of Evil. In order to avoid failure, Gru adopts three cookie-peddling orphans, Margo, Edith, and Agnes, with the intent of using them to create a distraction while he steals the shrink ray from Vector. Predictably, Gru takes a liking to the girls, raising an entire new set of issues. Despicable Me the feature-length directorial debut of both Pierre Coffin and Chris Renaud, is loaded with witty sight gags and is quite well-animated on a reportedly $70 million budget (a bit below the average cost of a major computer-animated film). The film is always creative, sentimental without resorting to sappiness, and full of quotable dialogue, thanks to screenwriters Ken Daurio and Cinco Paul. The vocal performances are mostly superb, particularly those by Carell, Segel, and Kristen Wiig, who voices Miss Hattie, the thoroughly unpleasant mistress of the orphanage. The real stars of Despicable however, are the minions. With their side-splitting slapstick antics, they provide most of the laughs and play a huge role in making the film what it is.

4-H Goes Buggy with Forensic EntomologyHow many insects have you eaten today?Mrs. Cathia Schmarje and the 4-H staff came to work July 29 and found that they had a Black Bear Murder Mystery to solve. Someone had left the remains for the 4H youth to evaluate, observe and find out who killed the black bear. They observed the remains for three days watching insects come, go and stay while giving clues the whole time so they could solve the crime. While doing so they also investigated how some insects were beneficial to us and while others were nothing but pest. They also did experiments in the repellency lab with different kinds of oils, apples and crickets to determine if the oils were a repellant to see if the ones they used would drive away the crickets. During the 3 days they tasted and made many different snacks that looked liked insects but most of all their favorite appetizer of Day Camp was the delicious fried mealworms and mealworm chocolate chip cookies. These youth had a great time learning and having fun, if you would like to know more about Liberty County 4-H give us a call at 643-2229.

Summer 2010 is possibly more bloated with lame sequels, unnecessary remakes, and uninspired comic book and video game movies than any season before it, but ironically, animated films targeted at children have consistently provided the most entertainment value. 9/10 NOTE: Though I am certainly no fan of the 3D phenomenon as a whole, Despicable Me utilizes the hi-tech tool very well by acknowledging that it is, in fact, a cheap gimmick. The uproarious end credits sequence is a wickedly clever parody of 3D technology. I actually recommend seeing the film in 3D for this reason.Movie Moment cont'd transporting a meth lab and asked him if anything illegal was in his vehicle.

The County Record, JULY 14, 2010, P P a a g g e e 8 8Blountstown native Cliff LeonardHonoring fallen soldiers through artB B Y Y M M A A T T T T C C O O L L E E M M A A N N T T h h e e T T i i m m e e s s U U n n i i o o n nBlountstown native Cliff Leonard, who now resides in Jacksonville, was recently featured in The Times Union One of Leonard’s sculptures is on display at the Calhoun County Courthouse, a generous donation from the artist in honor of our local soldiers. The Times Union graciously agreed to share Matt Coleman’s story on this talented man. The Marines’ steelyeyed gaze is iconic — a reflection of their resolve to serve their country, putting their lives on the line. Jacksonville sculptor Cliff Leonard understands that better than most. A Marine veteran himself, he’s been making busts of fallen servicemen for the past two years. He’s completed eight so far. He knows he’s hit the mark when he takes a step back and feels the eyes he’s sculpted boring into him. “I want them looking stern and dedicated,” he said. “I don’t want them smiling and laughing. It’s more solemn that way. “That’s what I did for Josh.” Marine Cpl. Joshua Watkins was killed in Iraq in 2006. He was shot in the stomach while on foot patrol in Fallujah, nine days before the end of his second tour. The Nease High School graduate attended the University of North Florida for three years before enlisting. Amy Watkins Vazquez said her son, spurred by the 9/11 terrorist attacks, became a Marine to protect freedom abroad. “He was so driven,” she said. “He wanted to help so badly.” Leonard, 63, sees a little of himself in Joshua Watkins, even though they never met. “I remember what it was like, going to a foreign country as a Marine,” he said. “Those memories stay with you. I don’t think there’s anything quite like it.” Leonard, a Vietnam veteran who spent 13 months in combat on a small reconnaissance team, has attended Florida State College at Jacksonville and UNF off and on for decades, taking fine art classes. In 2003, a clay statue of his won first place at a FSCJ show. The college even purchased the piece for its permanent collection. Leonard said he was inspired to make the busts through his involvement in the Jacksonville Semper Fidelis Society, an organization of active-duty Marines and veterans. Members had been planning a memorial program at a local cemetery for Northeast Florida Marines killed in combat, and Leonard offered to make a bust for the occasion. The memorial fell through, but the artist never wavered. He decided to create a bust of every fallen Marine or Navy corpsman from the First Coast and donate them to grieving family members. The first was Nate Clemons, a 20-year-old private killed by a roadside bomb in Iraq in 2005. He presented it to Clemons’ grandparents during a tearful meeting of the Semper Fidelis Society. It was later installed at Terry Parker High School — Clemons’ alma mater. 'Touching mission’ All of Leonard’s work is done in his studio, nestled in his Avondale home. He clips pictures of the fallen servicemen from the newspaper or prints them from the Internet and hangs them in his workshop. Sometimes he contacts family members for better quality images. Then he meticulously molds the water-based clay into their likeness, a process that takes about two months of fine-tuning. Once it’s fired and ceramic, Leonard mixes three or four colors of acrylic paint until it looks bronze. He finishes the busts with black and brown shoe polish, giving them a vibrant sheen. Leonard contacted Vasquez when he finished the bust of Watkins a few months ago. He wanted her to have it, but the mother said her emotional wounds were still too raw. She instead donated the bust to UNF. “I can’t think of a more fitting home for the sculpture,” she said. “I would like it to be in a place where people can understand his sacrifice.” Debra Murphy, chair of the UNF Department of Art and Design, said the gift was an unexpected surprise. It’s being housed temporarily in the department, but the plan is to make it a permanent fixture in UNF’s new Military and Veteran Resource Center, scheduled to open in the fall. Murphy said the school was touched by Leonard’s dedication. “What a wonderful and profoundly touching mission he’s embarked upon — to utilize his considerable talents as a portrait sculptor to honor these fine young Marines,” Murphy said. “It’s an amazing gift to their families, while it reminds us of the nobility and greater purpose of military service.” All about sacrifice Vasquez hasn’t been able to bring herself to see the memorial bust in person. The closest she came to it was a cell phone picture snapped by a friend. But that’ll change soon. She’s planning on attending the dedication of the resource center. She’ll be ready to take in Leonard’s vision of her son then, she says. The sculptor said he’s honored by the attention, but he didn’t embark on this journey for himself. It’s all about the Marine’s sacrifice — the sacrifice he tries to capture in that steely gaze. Former U.S. Marine and sculptor Cliff Leonard works on a bust of Marine Pfc. Robert Jenkins of Interlachen, Florida Wednesday, June 10, 2010 in his Jacksonville, Florida studio. Jenkins was killed in 1969 while serving in Vietnam. Leonard has done busts of several fallen Marines and given them to the families.

To those who lived near her and those who lived apart. She would greet you with kindness and love, like God said for us to do, if we want to reach our home above.

So when life here is over, we no longer here abide we will meet her in heaven, when we cross the swelling tide. Words are never enough to express our thoughts and feelings at a time like this to our many friends and relatives who found so many loving ways to show how much you cared for our beloved mother, and us. So we ask that God will bless each of you in his own special way for each and every kind word and deed that have come our way.

Mr. O’Bryan presented to the Board a Notice to Receive Sealed Bids for the 2010 Flatwoods Road Spring Storm Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) Emergency Watershed Program (EWP) DR-1785 PW 1641/2-25 FEMA Repairs. Bids will be received until 12:00 p.m. (CT), on July 6, 2010, at the Calhoun County Clerk’s Office, Calhoun County Courthouse, 20859 Central Avenue East, Room 130, Blountstown, Florida 32424 and will be opened and read aloud on July 6, 2010, at 2:00 p.m. (CT). Mr. O’Bryan discussed with the Board the County’s Driveway Ordinance. They discussed ways to enforce proper installation of driveways. Mr. O’Bryan stated there were several options. One option would be to request a deposit from the applicant at the time the permit is issued. He also stated that it cost the County $2,000 to $2,500 to properly install a driveway. If the Board so chooses the option of the driveway installation deposit, then the applicant can request a refund of their deposit after final inspection by PrebleRish, Inc., certifying proper installation of driveways. Mr. Joe Wood discussed problems with driveway installations and recommended another option, that they advertise and procure a contractor to install driveways. If the Board chooses this option, the Applicant is responsible for payment of total driveway costs before the permit can be issued. It was consensus by the Board that Mr. O’Bryan, Joe Wood and Matt Carpenter review the Driveway Ordinance and make recommendations on achieving proper driveway installations. Mr. Wood stated that the Board received a copy of the Drug Free Workplace Policy several weeks ago and recommended to the Board that they approved and execute said policy. He stated the County would receive a $5,000.00 credit if the policy is approved along with other recommended procedures by Workman’s Comp Insurance. After discussion, a motion was made by Commissioner Miller, seconded by Commissioner Grant and carried to approve and execute said Drug Free Workplace Policy.

Mr. O’Bryan suggested and they agreed to place public service notices in the local paper.
