To all our students, parents, faculty, district personnel, and community supporters: We are excited as we begin a new year with high expectations. There are many changes taking place in both personnel and curriculum. We are gradually moving away from the FCAT into a new accountability mode called the End of Course Exam. This year, 9th graders will have to take Algebra I with the End of Course Exam which will county as 30% of their grade, while 10th graders taking math will have to take the FCAT. We are field testing geometry and biology this year and next year they will be End of Course Exams counting 30% of a studentÂ’s grade. In the 2011-12 school year, Algebra Iwill be a part of the school grades. In the school year 201112, a student will have to score a level 3 in FCATto graduate from high school. FCAT reading will remain the same as it has been. I have said all this to try and inform everyone on the big changes in testing set forth by the state. Ronnie Hand is the new principal at Blountstown High School and Debbie Williams will be the assistant principal. Tracy Wood will be the new assistant principal at Blountstown Elementary School. Sue Price will be the district reading and RTI coach. Kay Tipton will be the new director of curriculum. Robin Richards will be the dean of CARE and adult education. Warren Roberts is the new Altha School basketball and RTI coach. Bruce Hubbs is the new assistant football coach at Blountstown High School and ISSteacher. There are many more new teachers, paraprofessionals, and non-instructional personnel for this coming year. We have been a high performing school districtTribute to Mitchell LarkinsOfficials with the Big Bend Baseball League paid tribute to the late Mitchell Larkins Sunday before the first pitch was thrown in the championship game.

WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 11, 2010 103rd Year, No. 50 BLOUNTSTOWN, FLORIDA 32424 50 CENTS (Including Tax) COURTCharges dropped against Todd LeeBY KELLI PEACOCK DUNN News EditorThe case against a Blountstown man arrested last month on drug charges has been dismissed. Patrick Todd Lee, 40, was taken into custody following a routine traffic stop that turned up 46 Lortab pills. He was subsequently charged with drug trafficking. According to the State AttorneyÂ’s Office, since his arrest, Lee has produced valid prescriptions for the medication found in his possession during the traffic stop. In addition, he provided medical records showing legitimate medical concerns, including a broken back, which justified the prescriptions.

Anna Marie Nichols, 28, has been charged with exploitation of an elderly person, forgery, uttering forged instruments, and grand theft. According to the Calhoun County SheriffÂ’s Office, Nichols was hired by an elderly man from Clarksville to care for his wife. Nichols was required back in May to work four hours in the morning and two hours in the evening at a rate of $8 per hour. She was let go July 4 for failing to be punctual. Later that month, the man realized some of his checkbooks were missing. Capt. Michael Bryant investigated the case and uncovered over 50 checks made out to Nichols with a signature that clearly didnÂ’t match the manÂ’s signature on other checks he had written. The dates ranged from May 7 to July 19 and the checks totalled $14,504. Nichols allegedly cashed the checks at a bank and supermarket in Altha, as well as banks in Marianna, Panama City, and even one in West Palm Beach. Nichols could be seen on video at the Altha supermarket cashing checks. The checks cashed in Calhoun County totalled $4170, resulting in the local charges. The $10,334 worth of checks cashed fraudulently in other counties will be handled in those jurisdictions. Nichols was booked into the Calhoun County Jail last Tuesday. She was transferred to the Liberty County Jail where she remained in custody at press time.

The Calhoun County School District maintained an overall grade of Â“AÂ” for 2010. Over in Liberty County, the district improved from a Â“CÂ” to a Â“BÂ” grade. In order for schools to receive an Â“AÂ” grade, they must score 525 points or more in the required areas, meet adequate progress of lowest students in reading and math, and test at least 95 percent of eligible students. Here in Calhoun County, administrators and faculty at Blountstown Elementary School were extremely disappointed to drop from an Â“AÂ” to a Â“BÂ” this year. Not only did they meet the required points for an Â“AÂ” grade, they exceeded them, scoring an impressive 550 with 99 percent of students tested. However, 50% or more of the lowest 25% students must show gains in reading and math. Although a remarkable 65% showed gains in reading, only 49% did so in math just one percentage point shy of the mark, resulting in a Â“BÂ” grade. Both Blountstown Middle School and Carr School maintained an Â“AÂ” grade. Tolar K-8 in Bristol dropped from a Â“BÂ” to a Â“CÂ” this year. Hosford K-8 improved from a Â“BÂ” to an Â“AÂ” grade. High schools are being graded different this year and their report cards will not be released until sometime in the fall. Therefore, scores for Altha School, Blountstown High, and Liberty County High will be announced later this year.Calhoun Co. school district earns an A'Woodmen of World to honor Ty Edwards Lt. Col.

Map of Area Site Diamond Dawgs win championship One of the most difficult tasks in any sport is to repeat a championship from the previous year. The Liberty County Diamond Dawgs did exactly that by defendng their 2009 championship of the Big Bend Baseball League of Florida for the 2010 Baseball League season. It was not an easy task for the Diamond Dawgs as it took the full three games of the championship series to take the title from the Washington County Bruins. The Bruins won the first game of the series Saturday in Chipley 10-7 behind the pitching of Colin Lugwig, Hunter Park, and Zack Jadofsky Â– Park getting the win and Jadofsky getting the save. However, it was quite a different story on Sunday in Bristol, as the Diamond Dawgs took both games 12-2 and 11-6 to claim the title as the Big Bend Baseball League Champions for the second years in a row. It was too much hitting by the Diamond Dawgs as Travis Anderson and Robbie Fleck contributed a grand slam each on the day. Likewise, behind the pitching of Rankin Miles in the first game, Darringer Edwards in the second game with reliever Tim Davis, the Bruins had to settle for runner up for the 2010 season. Matt Willis, manager of the Washington Bruins and his team must be congratulated for this accomplishment for their first year in the league play. But it was a total and balanced team effort by David BlackÂ’s Diamond Dawgs with excellent hitting, pitching, and good defense that proved the difference. A balanced team including outfielders Tranquille (CF), Elliott (LF), and Sapp (RF) along with the Parrish brothers, Jody and Jammie, in middle infield with Smith (3B) and Fleck (1B) at the corners and you have a winning defense. Throw on Boo Morris (DH) with Travis Anderson and Richard Joyner as catchers handling the pitching of Rankin Miles, Darringer Edwards and relief pitcher Tim Davis and you have a winning combination for the 2010 Big Bend Baseball League Champions Â– The Liberty County Diamond Dawgs. Congratulations, Dawgs on your repeat! The MVP awards for the League as voted on by all managers of the eight teams within the League went to Mel Stocker, center fielder from the Bay County Brewers in the Western Division. Ben Faurot shortstop for the Calhoun Horsemen won the Eastern Division MVP. Congratulations Mel and Ben! Trophy awards also went to the Destin Dawgs for the best winning regular season record in the Western Division and to the Liberty County Diamond Dawgs for the best regular season record in the Eastern Division for the 2010 season. Prior to the games on Sunday the wife and family of the late Mitchell Larkin, who served as Assistant Commissioner of the Big Bend Baseball League of Florida until his recent death, were presented a plaque in remembrance of his devoted and dedicated service to the League. The Administrative Staff Morrell Bailey, Commissioner; Donald Stephens, Assistant Commissioner; Carol Schauf, Administrative Assistant; and Harold Bailey, Promotions and Publicity would like to extend their thanks to all managers and their teams for making the 2010 a very successful and enjoyable season of baseball in the Big Bend Baseball League of Florida.

We had a successful year in 2009/2010 and I have every reason to expect that this year will also be a success. It takes effort on everyoneÂ’s part to be successful in educating students and I encourage everyone to be committed to encouraging, monitoring, and guiding our students in their endeavors. I am excited about the opportunities we have ahead of us for the coming year. We have been very busy making preparations for our studentsÂ’ return in terms of faculty and facilities. I challenge everyone to set goals for the coming year and work very hard to achieve them. I am confident that with hard work, determination, teamwork, and positive attitudes, only great things will occur at Carr School.

I have an amazing group of dedicated teachers and staff anxiously awaiting the arrival of children on August 16th. We have been busy all summer preparing for the new year. Many of our classrooms have been outfitted with the newest technology enabling us to provide some new types of learning experiences. We are continually evaluating our practices and programs because we are committed to continuous improvement and I welcome any input you may have to offer. Your child and their education is our top priority. Our goal is for every child to reach their potential and experience success. At Blountstown Elementary School, we teach far more than the skills tested on the FCAT and we are aware that teacher-students relationships are at the heart of schooling. I keep a quote that says Â“People donÂ’t care how much you know until they know how much you careÂ” and we strive to provide an atmosphere in which your child knows they are cared for, valued, and respected. Research shows that parent involvement is high on the list of factors contributing to a studentÂ’s success in school so we strive to be a friendly school and we look forward developing a relationship with you and your family. We encourage you to be involved in your childÂ’s education and I look forward to seeing you at our Open House on Friday, August 13th from 8:0012:00. Again, I welcome your thoughts and ideas so feel free to contact or visit me anytime during the year.

for the past 6 years and hope to maintain our elite status which allows the district extra flexibility with many state issues. The project completion date for the new Blountstown High School is projected to be April 2011. In August of 2011, we plan to move the high school students to the new site, the middle school students to the present high school site, and the county offices to the vocational wing of the present high school site. We will then try to acquire the state funding to build new schools in Altha, Carr, and an elementary school in Blountstown. Blountstown High School had two national championship programs in agriculture last school year. The Altha FCCLA program had 4 gold medalists and 2 silver medalists at the national competition last school year. Blountstown High School will be sending 2 state winning agriculture teams again this year to the national competition. We have many other achievements too numerous to name that we are very proud of. We want to thank every student, parent, faculty member, and community supporter that are such a vital part of our successful school district. Tommy McClellan Superintendent of Calhoun County The County Record, AUGUST 11, 2010, P P a a g g e e 9 9 Altha School News BlountstownMiddle School NewsDear Students and Families, Welcome to our returning students and newcomers at the Calhoun Adult School and CARE Program. I hope you had a wonderful summer break, filled with opportunities to learn and grow. We look forward to working with you next school year. Congratulations to those that have recently completed either Adult Ed. or CARE. We wish you the best in the days ahead and encourage you to continue your education. We have been busy getting ready for you by painting walls, polishing floors, cleaning classrooms and our teachers have been participating in trainings all summer long. Classes will begin on Monday, August 16th, promptly at 7:45 AM. Our CARE faculty/staff will be contacting parents/guardians throughout the first week of school via telephone call and/or letters. Other letters and forms particular to your childÂ’s home school and class assignments will also be sent home the first day of school. All forms must be signed by parents/guardians and returned by the end of the week. For those of you that arenÂ’t familiar with CARE, it is a dropout prevention program that stands for character, attitude, responsibility and education. We serve students in grades 6 Â– 12. We believe that all students can learn and succeed when provided a learning environment that meets their needs and interests. We work with our students to help them be successful when they return to their home school or continue their education at the Adult School. The Calhoun County Adult School is a school for students ages 16 and above. We offer individualized instruction at the studentÂ’s own pace. The next GED test will be offered at Adult Ed. on September 1st and 2nd. You can find more testing information as well as about our Adult School at http://www.calhounadult.org/ We would like to introduce our new faculty/staff. Mr. Charles Buggs will be at the Adult School taking Mr. Sonny NoblesÂ’ place. Mr. Nobles recently completed nursing school and is working as a nurse. He will be missed. We are fortunate to have Mr. Buggs joining our team. We also welcome Coach Bruce Hubbs, ISS Director and Georgia Barbee, both will be at the CARE Program. All of our faculty/staff are professionals dedicated to increase the academic success of our students. Therefore, we work diligently to create positive educational experiences to meet the needs of our students. We believe our students can indeed have a successful year through consistent effort, good attendance, and responsible conduct. We encourage parents to help make this a reality by being involved, monitoring and guiding their children. Thank you to our parents, school board, district staff and community for your continued support at the Calhoun County Adult School and CARE Program.

The cheerleaders will begin activities at 5:30 PM in the gym followed by the introduction of new faculty and staff members. We will then share with you the improvements that have been made around campus. Following door prizes, teachers will be available in their rooms. Student information packets, locker assignments, and class schedules will be available. Please visit the lunchroom to complete lunch applications, prepay lunch accounts, and receive your hotdog and drink. Edline accounts can also be activated in the library to check your childÂ’s grades online. I would like to extend a special thank you to our district administration and school board members for helping us secure fencing and new walkway covers. With the help of Mr. William BrunerÂ’s Inmate Work Squad, we were able to have walkway covers installed for students in grades 2-4. The work squad removed the old fencing so that a new fence could be added to secure the entire campus. In addition, the work squad has been working in the gym to continue covering the old windows on the east side. We were also fortunate to have a special workday this summer. Rivertown Community Church joined by members of Altha First Baptist Church and Altha Church of God, provided over 200 volunteers to work on June 26th. Through their help, we were able to complete projects that would have taken our staff weeks to complete. Words cannot express how grateful we are to have that kind of support from the community. It was truly a remarkable day! We are excited about the upcoming school year and look forward to the opportunity to work with you and your child.

Equipment was brought in and the crosses were sandblasted off the tombs, communism had taken over Albania. In Holland, God was preparing a person like Esther "for such a time as this" (Esther 4:14). No missionary could have gotten into Albania at that time, so God used a Nazarene Dutch woman and her people as His missionary. At a time when it seemed Christianity was in danger of being wiped out in Albania, this young woman answered God's call and transferred there. She became God's light that couldn't be sandblasted away. Then, as an unbelieving world watched, Communism fell. Albania didn't want to be overrun by any and all cults as other nations. In deciding what groups they would allow into their country, they turned to this lady. She had through those years exemplified the kind of lifestyle Albanian leaders now wanted to help them bring back the religious base they had tried to stamp out. They wanted her church, people whose lives were consistent with what they said, to be one of the powers helping to rebuild their country. Her life did what nothing else could. So it is with all who yield completely to God and leave the results to Him. Are we up to the task?Reputation or Character?Esther 9:1,4 S S U U B B S S C C R R I I B B E E T T O O D D A A Y Y !
