BY KELLI PEACOCK DUNN News EditorRescue workers were stunned to find the driver of the vehicle pictured above walked away from a Sunday night crash. Jose Agustin Vargas-Santiago, 22, of Tallahassee, was located at 12:45 a.m. nearly three hours after the wreck. He has been charged with DUI, driving without a license, and leaving the scene of an accident. According to the Florida Highway Patrol, Santiago was westbound on SR20 just before 10 p.m., traveling at a high rate of speed when he lost control of his 1996 Dodge Avenger near the intersection of CR287. He reportedly crossed the eastbound lane, went off the south side of the road and the right side of his vehicle struck a power pole, knocking it over. The car rolled over, struck and knocked over two trees, then came to rest in the woods. Rescue workers, investigators, and FHP officers arrived on the scene, having to cut trees to get to the vehicle. They couldn’t locate anyone involved in the crash, but noticed blood on the passenger side door, indicating the driver possibly climbed out. Blood was also found 100 feet west of the vehicle. Trooper Mark Mattingley and Cpl. Bailey searched the area and found Santiago laying on the north shoulder of SR20. He had injuries to the right side of his head, along with a bruise consistent with a driver’s shoulder belt tucked under his left arm. Santiago had a working cell phone in his possession, but never reported the crash. He spoke no English, but interpreter Efrain Medina translated and he was read his rights. Tests revealed he was intoxicated. Santiago admitted to being the driver and sole occupant of the vehicle. He was transported to CalhounLiberty Hospital for treatment, then booked into the Calhoun County Jail.

Marsh, Northern District of Florida. The 37-count indictment filed in United States District Court in Pensacola charges James Lee Bailey, 42, a former BOP employee, and Lee J. Temples, 36, a BOP contractor, with conspiracy, money laundering, wire fraud, conflict of interest, and deprivation of honest services. Bailey is also charged with two counts of making false statements, and Temples is charged with one count of obstruction of justice. Both men, originally from Blountstown, were released on their own recognizance following their first appearance before United States Magistrate Judge Miles Davis today in Pensacola, Florida. The indictment alleges that between 2004 and 2007, Bailey and Temples maintained an undisclosed business relationship involving Fast-Lane Computers and E-Surplus Solutions. In James Lee Bailey’s position as the factory manager and industrial specialist at the UNICOR computer recycling factory in Marianna, Florida, he was responsible for eBay sales of surplus computer equipment.

Patrick Todd Lee, 40, has been charged with trafficking in hydrocodone. According to the Calhoun County Sheriff’s Office, Dep. Eddie Dalton and Dep. Mike Ballard were observing traffic on Apachee Road when they clocked a northbound vehicle at 55 mph in a 35 mph zone. Dep. John Scheetz pulled the vehicle over on CR 274 and Lee was found to be the driver. He appeared nervous with his legs shaking so bad he could barely stand and was asked if he had any illegal drugs or guns. He said, “No,” then consented to a search which turned up 46 Lortab pills. If convicted, he faces a minimum mandatory 25 year sentence.

Wreck leads to arrest on several chargesA man was arrested Saturday after leaving the scene of a crash in Hosford. Robert Louis Williams, 35, has been charged with hit and run, leaving the scene of a crash, DUI, fleeing, eluding, and driving while his license was suspended. According to the Liberty County Sheriff’s Office, an anonymous caller alerted authorities just before 7 a.m. that a Honda Civic was driving recklessly and the driver had lost control, striking a utility pole in Hosford. Dep. Chad Smith arrived on the scene and found the power pole snapped in half with the driver nowhere to be found. Dep. Smith was told that someone had picked up Williams and dropped him off at Busy Boys Store in Hosford. Dep. Finch located Williams who initially said he wasn’t involved in a crash. When told he fit the description of the driver, he reportedly confessed. As he was being driven back to the scene by the deputy, he asked if he could get the rest of his belongings. A back pack and boots were found leaning against the Busy Boy Store. A search of the items turned up drug paraphernalia. Back at the scene, the items were further searched, revealing a 16 oz. can of beer in one boot. Four plastic bags were also found, one containing what appeared to be marijuana residue and another with suspected cocaine residue. A vial with an unknown substance and a razor blade were also found. A search of the vehicle turned up a set of scales. Williams remains in custody at the Liberty County Jail.Loud music stop ends in arrest for drugsA traffic stop for loud music ended in a drug arrest in Bristol Sunday night. Miles William Murphy, 21, has ben charged with possession of more than 20 grams of marijuana with intent to sell or distribute. According to the Liberty County Sheriff’s Office, Murphy told authorities he was traveling from Tallahassee to Wewa. Murphy consented to a search of his vehicle which turned up a duffle bag with 2.2 pounds of marijuana sealed in four plastic bags. Murphy, who was the driver, stated the drugs belonged to him. B B Y Y J J A A M M E E S S A A . W W O O O O D D S S C C I I T T Y Y M M A A N N A A G G E E R RThe City of Blountstown has recently had an increase in the number of complaints concerning campaign materials, and political signs. In the last two weeks, campaign signs are showing up in increasing numbers. Unfortunately, many of the signs are placed illegally within 100 feet of any church, school, cemetery, public park, public reservation, public playground, state or national forest, public property, and within state, county and city road rights-of-way. Florida Department of Transportation, Calhoun County, and the City of Blountstown all have rules and laws governing the placement of signs in Road ways. Florida state law prohibits such placement as well as City Code. Campaigns and candidates should be well aware that signs cannot be placed in the road right-of-way. Signs located here can and will be removed without notice and the cost of removal can be billed to the campaign for payment. I am not opposed to campaigns placing signs for campaigns but please make sure they are placed properly and legally on private property. Campaign signs may be placed on private property, when that placement does not occur in a right-of –way or any of the previously mentions restricted areas. Signs not properly placed will be removed and seized. I want to remind businesses that improper placement of their signs along the road rights-of-way also violate City of Blountstown Code and can be removed and seized without notice. As City Manager I would encourage everyone to follow the City Code on the proper placement of Signs in the City of Blountstown.The County Record, JULY 21, 2010, P P a a g g e e 2 2 Please Join Marti Coley For A Free Fish Fry and Meet & Greet Opportunity OP EN T O THE COMM UNITY T hursday July 29 th 2010 At: W.T.

It seems the feline had been up an oak in her front yard and had cried all night; granny had gotten little sleep and was requesting help. That’s how we roll. Doyle had asked me to take a fire truck and meet him and the others there. When I arrived I found a small crowd had already gathered neighbors, grandkids and firefighters. I set up the truck and proceeded to engage the pump, and pull off some hose. “JK, what are you doing?” asked Doyle. “Ain’t we gonna knock it out with a water stream?” I replied. Doyle rolled his eyes and gave me that look. “Not with all these youngins around, and in front of granny! I wanted the truck for the ladder, get off the 24 footer and set it against the tree.” And gave me one more of those looks for good measure. By now I am sure my lip is poked out, I mean if we can’t have fun at one of these then what’s the point? I mean the cat will come down on its own. Have you ever seen a cat skeleton on a tree limb?? I rest my case. That being said, I do think I know why they stay up so long. Long before the days of cell phones, I came home from work to find several vehicles and even more people milling about my back yard. Had I forgotten something? Was it our turn to host a block party? I soon saw Nancy sitting on a porch swing we had under an a-frame we had put in the edge of the oaks. She was holding Zachary, our middle son, and she had her head down. With a quickening heartbeat, I scanned the crowd and spotted our oldest son, Jacob, standing by his PawPaw. Folks were talking amongst themselves in low tones. In those days, before we had pagers or handheld radios, the community was dispatched via land lines, One person called two people, then lit out, those two would do the same, one lady had the whole list and would call all. It was a good system; in fact, it is our back up system even today. I eased up to my dad, he softly explained that young Zach had come up missing, one of those “Mom turned her head for a second” type deals. Nancy had searched and called for just a few moments before calling for help. Smart girl. You don’t play around with these things. After a crew was on scene, someone took point and directed a search party, Nancy would not leave the last place she saw him, as if he would magically appear, just as lightning fast as he had gone. (One of the hardest thing she had to do, was ask our neighbor through the oaks to look in his pool.) I had only been home a few minutes, but already knew things were fine, but why was the crowd so quiet? Usually at this point, when the danger is over, the mood turns to a gab fest, who has caught what, who was that visiting you driving that new truck? Certainly, it’s not yours. I know you’re smart enough not to buy a Dodge (or Chevy or Ford, depending on who’s doing the ribbing). As I approached my wife and son, I realized why the mood was so somber. Fact was, the mood was respectful. Nancy was sitting on the swing; Zach was sitting on her lap facing her with his arms around her, head on her chest. Her arms were around him with her head down by his neck. The image was pure motherly love, it was as if she was trying to create a womb, using her arms head and torso. It was that private moment between mother and son, that all present were held spellbound by, even me, I felt I should approach them, but somehow felt I would be intruding, but I did approach and gently put a hand on her shoulder, at first she did not respond, then she looked up. Sorry, words will not work here. We thanked everyone, invited them all to supper, of course, but each one headed off to home. I bet most hugged their kids and spouse well, just because. Turns out, as the searchers were returning to base, my dad happened to look up, there sat Zach, about 12 feet up a tree, quiet as a church mouse. He later confessed that he had been quiet because he did not want to get caught climbing in the tree, and get in trouble, and he was just gonna wait it out and sneak down later “if” all these people would just leave! Kids, what can you do? So, I submit to you, cats will come down when no one is around, when all the fuss is done. However, it was an opportunity to earn our 10-CUAT badge. I extended the ladder and was positioning it. Doyle had gotten his fire coat (to wrap the cat, or more to the point, its claws) to safely bring down the critter. About this time, Johnny, Luscious and Tammy come sliding up on Johnny’s truck (Chevy). Johnny had a 22 rifle, Tammy had some hole diggers. “Sorry we’re late, Chief, someone had borrowed my ho’diggers and I had to get Tammy’s.” Doyle and I looked at him in complete dumb foundedness. Johnny just hung his head in the disbelief that we had no clue in how to handle this, but he saw an opportunity to teach not only us, but the whole gathering. “You see the skill involved in this operation is not the shooting of the cat, heck anyone can do that, but, being able to dig a hole before hand, right where he will fall, now that takes practice but, buddy, I am the man for the job!” The County Record, JULY 21, 2010, P P a a g g e e 5 5 *Offerends8/27/10.*$74.95permonthofferisforresidentialFairPointStandardHigh-SpeedInternetserviceplusnewFairPointHomePhoneCallin gplanandIPTVservice(whereavailable).OfferrequiresoneyearFairPointtermcommitment;earlyterminationfeeapplies.**FairPointdeliversadedicatedconnectiontoyourhomefromourcentralof“ce.Onlyphonesthatdonotrequireelectricityworkduringpower outages.IPTVserviceofferedinalimitedarea;callforavailability.‚ForcustomertoaccessHDprogramming,servicemustresideonanHDtelevision.FullHousebundlesareavailabletoresidentialcustomers foralimitedtimeandsubjecttochangewithoutnoti“cation.EligibilityforFullHousepackagesrequiresservicestobeinvoicedonasinglebill.Th ebundledpricedoesnotincludeotherapplicablechargessuch as:equipment,taxes,fees,FCCLineCharge,UniversalServiceFee,andothersurcharges.

In the Eastern Division the Gulf County Drive held onto first place by the slightest of margins over the Liberty Diamond Dawgs. The Dawgs took a 13-3 win from Gulf in Bristol on Sunday but still trail the Drive by one game in less than one percentage point in the Eastern Division standings. The Calhoun Horsemen and Chattahoochee Red Birds remain in third and fourth place respectively. In the Western Division the Washington Bruins (96) pulled within one-half game of the Destin Dawgs (10-6) with a win over the Jackson Jays 7-1 while the Destin Dawgs were idle on Sunday. With one weekend remaining in regular season play, all teams are scheduled for double headers on Sunday, July 25th, as noted above. Pairings (seedings) for the upcoming play-offs beginning Saturday, July 31st in each division is still anybody’s bet.

The new permit costs $5 and is available now for purchase. Those with a Sportsman's License, Gold Sportsman's License, 64 or Older Sportsman's License, Military Gold Sportsman's License, Lifetime Hunting License or Lifetime Sportsman's License will not need to purchase the new deer permit, because it already is included in each of these licenses, even if they were purchased before July 1. However, the deer permit is not included with a hunting license, combination hunting/freshwater fishing license, combination hunting/freshwater/saltwater license or a five-year hunting license. Anyone hunting deer with either of these licenses must also buy the $5 deer permit to hunt deer legally. Funds generated by the new permit will be earmarked to support deer management and deer research. Funds also will support ongoing efforts to monitor Florida's deer herd for Chronic Wasting Disease (CWD). The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission approved a "Strategic Plan for Deer Management in Florida: 2008-2018" in February 2008. Critical to success of this plan is establishing deer management units and a harvest-reporting system; both have been identified as top priorities by the agency and its stakeholders to better manage deer. People can purchase all permits and related licenses from their county tax collector, retail outlets that sell fishing and hunting supplies, online at or by calling toll-free 888HUNT-FLORIDA (4868356). The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) wants to make hunters aware that beginning this year, quota permits for general gun, archery, muzzleloading gun, family, youth, airboat and track will not be mailed out to successful applicants as they have been in the past. Instead, the FWC is allowing hunters, who are awarded permits in the random drawings, to print the quota permits by going to and choosing "Limited Entry/Quota then Pickup/Pay for Awarded Permit." For detailed instructions on how to do this, go to /Hunting and click "Limited Entry Hunts," then "How to Print Your Limited Entry Hunt Permit Directly from the Website." Hunters not having access to the Internet or a printer can pick up their awarded quota permits at license agents or county tax collectors' offices. But, be prepared to give to the clerk, the 4-digit hunt number of the hunt you were awarded. Hunt numbers are listed on the quota worksheets. To check drawing results and permit availability, hunters may again go to and click "Limited Entry Hunts." Permits issued during phase I or II can be downloaded or picked up any time before the hunt ends. However, if you obtain a quota permit during the first-come, first-served phase III, make sure to print it out at the end of the transaction. If you go through a license agent or tax collector during this period, you will receive your quota permit from the clerk. The exception is that mobility-impaired quota hunt permits will continue to be mailed to successful applicants. Also, the legal game tags used in South Florida during track and airboat quota hunts, which are still required, will continue to be mailed to the awarded permit holders.Quota permits will not be mailed; hunters can print H U N T I N G N E W S w w w w w w . t t h h e e c c o o u u n n t t y y r r e e c c o o r r d d . n n e e t t

Horse owners reminded to vaccinateFlorida Agriculture and Consumer Services Commissioner Charles Bronson is urging horse owners to get their animals vaccinated following an upsurge in the number of Eastern Equine Encephalitis cases. Sentinel chickens that serve as an early warning of the existence of the disease are also being diagnosed with EEE in areas of the state that are not usually affected. EEE is a viral disease that affects the central nervous system and is transmitted to horses by infected mosquitoes. Bronson says the majority of cases of EEE and other mosquito borne diseases can be prevented through proper vaccinations. Horse owners are urged to check with their veterinarian.

The students treated Mrs. Granger to a birthday dinner at Ed Debevic's, a restaurant famous for it's hilariously rude wait staff. Mrs. Granger rented a limousine and took the students to some of Chicago's most popular sites. In addition to having loads of fun, the students got down to work at the competition and enjoyed meeting FCCLA members from across the country.

Johnny poked out his lip…we looked like twins. I held the ladder, the Chief went up, the crowd got quiet. The capture went without a hitch, the animal was too tired to put up much of a fight. Down the ladder they came. This was one of those special moments. The hungry, frightened cat had just his head sticking out of the jacket, Doyle, with what might have been to date the proudest look on his face, the grandmother, with her brood around her feet, was facing him as he extended his arms to present the pet back to its overjoyed master. I swear in my mind I could hear the cameras clicking, I could see the cover of Time magazine clearly in my head, I could read the headline, “Small town VFD Chief named Hero of the Year.” Granny’s mouth formed words, and just when she should have said, “Oh, Mittens, thank goodness you are safe!” Instead was, “I don’t want that, it ain’t my cat.” Doyle did not even lower the stray, he turned his wide eyed, misbelieving what he just heard face to where Johnny and I had changed our poked out lips to smirks. Smiling now, I raised a spray nozzle and Johnny raised his rifle. I honestly don’t remember what we did with the cat, it seems someone in the group took him in, but I suppose the best part was the grandmother could get some peace and quiet, oh, and we talked the Chief into writing a new protocol for the next 10-CUAT.

Profits from these arranged sales were split between the two defendants, with Bailey receiving $228,252 over the course of three years. If convicted, defendants face the following maximum penalties upon each count of conviction: for conspiracy to violate conflict of interest laws 5 years’ imprisonment; for conspiracy to commit wire fraud – 20 years’ imprisonment; for conspiracy to commit money laundering 20 years’ imprisonment; for wire fraud 20 years’ imprisonment; for deprivation of honest services 20 years’ imprisonment; for false statements 5 years’ imprisonment; and for obstruction of justice – 20 years’ imprisonment. The grand jury indictment also seeks forfeiture of any real or personal property traceable to the crimes alleged. This case was investigated by the Internal Revenue Service Criminal Investigation, the Department of Justice Office of Inspector General, Atlanta Area Office, and the Department of Justice Office of Inspector General, Oversight and Review Division. This case is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Stephen Preisser. An indictment is merely a formal charge by the grand jury. Each defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty in United States District Court.Arrests for scheme cont'd O O N N L L I I N N E E E E D D I I T T I I O O N Nw w w w w w / / t t h h e e c c o o u u n n t t y y r r e e c c o o r r d d . n n e e t tMARIANNA—Chipola College is now accepting applications for Corrections and Law Enforcement programs.
