A debate ensued over a project and the issue of whether or not paving subdivisions is appropriate. Five years ago, Steve Bailey developed a subdivision on South Pear Street that resulted in the creation of two new roads Peach and Plum Streets. At the time, he was serving as a Blountstown City Councilman. During a meeting, he stepped down from his seat and addressed the board as a citizen, asking the City to handle paving of those new streets. The Council unanimously agreed to pave them.  APPLIANCES  PAINT  LUMBER  BUILDING MATERIALS  TOOLS  FLOOR COVERING & MORE WALDORFF A CE H ARDWAR E 25615 N.

BY KELLI PEACOCK DUNN News EditorThe election is clearly in full swing as 292 voters have already cast their ballots in Calhoun County. Early voting continues daily from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday. The primary election is set for Tuesday, Aug. 24, from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. In other election news, three candidates qualified for the City Council post vacated by Phillip Hill. They are Clifford Jackson, Roy Pickron, and Beverly Veress. That race will be on the November 2 ballot.POLITICSVoters turning out early; City race setCRIMEInmate assaults officers BENEFIT GOVERNMENTChecks and balances: Could county make it with 20% cut?B B Y Y K K E E L L L L I I P P E E A A C C O O C C K K D D U U N N N N N N e e w w s s E E d d i i t t o o r rCounty Commissioner Danny Wise (district 1) is ready to see taxes come down. Most of us would agree we’d love nothing more than to see our tax bills reduced. As reported in last week’s edition, Wise asked Clerk Ruth Attaway to balance the county budget at 8 mills, down from the current 10 mills which is the county’s cap. The board agreed unanimously to review a budget at that rate to investigate the possibility of lowering taxes. But what would a 20 percent tax reduction mean to county offices? That was the question The County Record posed this week. “If I were to have a 20% reduction in my various budgets, it would necessitate reducing the number of personnel,” says Sheriff David Tatum. “If I reduce the number of personnel, then we will then be forced to reduce the services offered. We are providing our services with the same number of employees this agency had in 1995. We are staffed at a level that permits us to have one jailer/correctional officer per shift and one 911 operator per shift. As a measure to maximize our coverage, our deputies work 12 hour shifts so that we may have from 1-3 per shift depending upon the time of day and day of week. Any reductions in those numbers will result in serious public safety issues.” Sheriff Tatum has proved time and again that he knows how to trim the fat out of a budget. For instance, the Gulf County Jail operates with a budget of $1,205,140 compared to the Calhoun County Jail budget of $469,658. “Gulf County's isn't necessarily out of line with other jails of similar size in the state; ours is and has historically been funded at a very low rate,” Sheriff Tatum points out. As for the law enforcement budget, Sheriff Tatum puts it in perspective by comparing it to the Blountstown Police Department. “The City of Blountstown allocates $760,000 for the BPD annually. Our law enforcement budget is $726,218.34,” he remarks. “If we compare with other Sheriff's Offices throughout the state, we are the lowest funded Sheriff's Office for a county with a population over 10,000 people.” For the past three years, Sheriff Tatum says he has been cutting his budget. “I am very sensitive to the burdens of taxation and the need for providing a quality service at a minimum cost. We practice that on a daily basis. That is not new to this office. My predecessor operated in a frugal manner and I have endeavored to continue that effort over the past 10 years I have served. However, because of that our budget hasn't accumulated a lot of fat so it is very difficult to find areas to cut that will not adversely affect public The Woodmen of the World Lodge 61 will present a patriotic program honoring Lt. Col. Ty Edwards and all military on Saturday, August 21, at 6 p.m. at the Blountstown High School auditorium. Everyone is invited to come and be a part of this special event.

Also in the vehicle was Gregory Hartzell who was found with a small amount of meth. Both were booked into the county jail. ARGUELLESHARTZELL


How cool it would have been to interview some of the ancient Israelites on the afternoon of the first Passover, to watch as they dipped a hyssop branch in the blood of a perfect lamb and painted the door frames of their homes with it! I would like to know what they were really thinking and ask a few questions! Did they believe this action would save their firstborn from death and free the people from slavery? Did they understand the power in this blood? As they applied the blood around their doors, no doubt some of it dripped to the ground. Could they ever have imagined they were painting a picture of the Messiah's sinless death on a cross? His head bleeding from a thorny crown; His hands stretched out and nailed with spikes; His feet secured to the cross by another spike; blood was flowing from these and other wounds dripping to the ground. Could they ever have understood the redemptive power in the blood of a holy perfect God, shed in love for sinful man? In fact, can we? Two millennia after Calvary, it still is the greatest mystery of all. We don't know why Jesus loved us with such abandon love. We don't know how His blood can free us from the chains of sin and death. We only know that when applied in faith to the door of your heart and mine, it works! We are made new people in Christ Jesus! The blood, the blood, is all my plea that Jesus bled and died for me. When Jesus’ blood is applied by faith, sin must go and righteousness must take its place.The County Record, AUGUST 18, 2010, P P a a g g e e 3 3 The parents of Kala Elizabeth Caudill and Joseph Edward Maxwell, III, are pleased to announce their upcoming wedding.

FACT  The Board Meeting in question was advertised in The County Record on July 28, 2010 and was held within the timeline required by Florida Statute.  The tax increase is MANDATED by the STATE  The local required effort millage rate increased by .2870 of a mill.

Eldridge, Sr. Special thanks to Dr. Clifford Bristol and also to all of his staff; you all are wonderful. Thank you, Jackie Hill, for your love, care, and all of your help. I couldn't have done it without you. Thanks to Hospice for all of their care and compassion. Words cannot express the love and care that Dr. Eldridge had for all of his patients. He prayed daily that he would be able to help each and every one of you. Dr. Eldridge was a true southern gentlemen and a wonderful employer. He was a very smart man and always continued to study to keep his mind alert. His family, Mrs. Eldridge and Donald, treated my family and I as if we were part of their family. They were good Christian people and they will all be missed. God bless you, Cynthia Aultman ** We want to express our deep gratitude for the many ways people in our community shared their love and concern during the short illness and death of our Mama, Grandma, and Great Grandma. We were humbled by your outpouring of support. Our parents were planning to live in Blountstown for one year, but they chose to make Calhoun County their permanent home because they fell in love with the wonderful people. As a family we have once again been recipients of your kindness. Many of you called, visited, sent cards, or prayed with us and for us. Many of you prepared great quantities of food for our large family. We are very grateful to the people from Red Oak Mennonite Church and Rivertown Community Church for the delicious meal after the funeral and for the use of the wonderful facilities.

safety.” Sheriff Tatum says he strives to maximize taxpayer dollars every day and continues exploring ways to cut costs. “I haven't bought a new patrol car for the agency since taking office,” he notes. “We buy used cars from larger agencies after they have retired them. We can still get 2-4 years out of them and sell them for a third of what we paid originally when we have gotten the good out of them. Two years ago, I orchestrated reviving the fuel system at the old DOT yard west of town so that all units of county government could benefit from bulk fuel purchases, thereby realizing a savings. In 2008, I designed and coordinated the construction of a new jail for just over $300,000. The $300,000 to fund this came from the City of Blountstown when they purchased the old library building on Pear Street to make a new police department, thereby giving the police department a new home and the county a new jail. These are examples of how I think government should work.” At the Clerk of Court’s office, Ruth Attaway says, “When I came in office 10 years ago, the money allocated to my office for the Board side was $200,000. It is now $203,000 with an additional $30,000 to provide clerical for the planning department for a total of $233,000. Every year for the past 5 years, I have given back to the Board from $88,000 to $112,000. A 20% cut would mean I would lose $40,000. Can I handle that? Yes, but the other offices in this courthouse could not without cutting back on services, and those services are for the most part legislated.” Supervisor of Elections Margie Laramore agrees. “We are currently running on a bare-bones budget as it is,” Laramore remarks. “We are very busy at all times. When we’re not running an election, we’re getting ready for an election. There are many laws that we must follow in order for our county’s elections to be run properly, with many more rules and regulations than in previous years. Many of the mandates we face are unfunded.” Laramore says other counties with less voters are operating with larger election budgets than her office. “When I turn in my budget request each year, I cut corners in every way possible.” Property Appraiser Terry Stone says budget cuts would mean job losses in his office. “I’d just have to lay off employees. My budget is basically made up of personnel services and computer services. We’re required by law to have those computers to do what we do. We’d have to cut out our website and cut employees and we couldn’t produce a tax roll like that.” Tax Collector Becky Trickey Smith doesn’t know how much more she could reduce and still operate. “I cut my budget last year. I’m short one position and if I get another 20 percent cut I’m not sure what I’m going to do.” Next week, we’ll hear from Property Appraiser Terry Stone on the questions about property tax assessments.The County Record, AUGUST 18, 2010, P P a a g g e e 6 6 Tigers hit the field, prepare for Freeport The Blountstown Tigers have been sweating it out in afternoon practices as they prepare for opening night at Bowles Field. The Tigers will host Freeport August 27 in the Kickoff Classic. Be sure to swing by the BHS office and pick up your season tickets just $30 each. The entire community is invited to a pep rally Tuesday, August 24, at 7 p.m. in the BHS Auditorium. Come out and meet the Tiger football team, volleyball players, and cheerleaders. by Blountstown Tiger Head Coach Greg Jorda n The 2010 football season officially got under way when the Tigers kicked off two a day practices on Monday, August 9th. We had 46 players report to camp after a long summer of workouts. We will open up the year hosting Freeport in the kick off classic on Friday the 27th of August. Season tickets for the upcoming season are on sale in the front office at B.H.S. Season tickets will be $30 each for five home regular season games. That will not cover the kick off classic game as it will be like a jamboree. That money has to be split with the FHSAA office and the opposing team. Schedules for both the JV as well as the varsity schedule can be picked up in the front office at school. The Future Tigers Camp and the Michael Guilford Skills Camp have been combined this year into one camp. This camp will take place Saturday, August 21st, from 9-12. The current players and coaches and any past players that would like to help are welcome to come out. It should be a fun and exciting camp. We encourage all eligible age groups to come out and join. It seems time is moving faster as every season approaches. Some of this year’s senior football players realize just how fast as this is their final season as a player at BHS. But as every senior class leaves a new freshman class takes their place and the cycle rolls on. This senior class will have to lead this football team to where we want to be at the end of the year and I believe they are up to the challenge. One last event to kick start the year will be our annual Community Pep Rally at the BHS Auditorium on Tuesday, August the 24th. It will begin @ 7:00 with a short 2009 highlight video and then a short welcome before the program begins. We will recognize the 2010 football and volleyball players, as well as the cheerleaders.

The reopening was announced after consultation with FDA and under a re-opening protocol agreed to by NOAA, the FDA, and the Gulf states. Since July 3, NOAA data have shown no oil in the area, and United States Coast Guard observers flying over the area in the last 30 days have also not observed any oil. Trajectory models show the area is at a low risk for future exposure to oil and, most importantly, fish caught in the area and tested by NOAA experts have shown no signs of contamination. “We are confident that Gulf fish from this area is safe to eat and pleased that recreational and commercial fisherman can fish these waters again,” said Jane Lubchenco, Ph.D., under secretary of commerce for oceans and atmosphere and NOAA Administrator.Gulf waters open again for fishing

Dep. Eddie Dalton arrived to assist and tried to escort Tucker, but he pulled away. Dep. Dalton then pulled his Taser and ordered Tucker to stop resisting. Both Tucker and Dep. Dalton slipped on the spilled KoolAid. Ofc. Godwin and Ofc. Nate Jordan tried to grab Tucker’s feet, but he continued kicking and swinging his arms. Dep. Dalton deployed the Taser, striking Tucker in the abdomen. Tucker then grabbed the Taser and threw it across the cell. He continued resisting the officers as Dep. Dalton retrieved the Taser. At one point, Tucker struck Dep. Dalton in his jaw. Dep. Dalton then took Tucker to the ground and the officers handcuffed him, then put him in the single cell. Just after midnight, Capt. Ken Futch checked on Tucker due to him kicking the cell window and destroying a door. Capt. Futch asked him to step back from the cell door; Tucker ignored him, then advanced toward him in an aggressive manner. Tucker, kicking and swinging, was eventually restrained again. In the process, Tucker bit Dep. Dalton. Tucker was initially being held for manufacture of meth and possession of listed chemicals.Assault on officers continued Fast forward to 2010 and the streets are still not paved. However, bids were recently advertised and three companies submitted proposals. C.W. Roberts Contracting was the low bidder at $91,378 when the bids were unsealed last Tuesday night. Before a motion could be made to accept the low bid, Councilman David Blair, who was not on the Council when the decision was made five years ago, posed a question: “How did we get into paving private subdivisions? A man builds a subdivision and all of a sudden the City is paving his streets?Why are we doing this?” City Manager James Woods was also not with the City at that time, but offered what he had learned since arriving. “I came here in August of 2007. The roads were dirt when I got here. I did some review and what Ifound was the City Council, in previous years, had made an obligation to paving these roads.” Councilman Blair questioned Councilwoman Janie Boyd who was on the Council at the time the decision was made and she responded that the City has always paved roads for local subdivisions. Planner Tony Arrant advised that the board did vote unanimously to pave the roads with Bailey agreeing to pay for water and sewer work, as well as building a foundation for the road. “The city agreed to pave it,” he noted, adding that the city code actually says a developer has to be responsible for all the infrastructure. The County Record spoke to Bailey who said the City has historically paved roads for subdivisions. “They can go back and document it,”he remarked. “There is not a street in the City of Blountstown that was not paved by the City. I’ve not asked for any special favors.” Bailey pointed out the subdivision has provided income for the City. “There are seven houses in there and those seven houses generate about $1400 month in electric bills and around $7000 a year in ad valorem taxes. When that subdivision is completely filled out, it will provide about $4000 a month in electric to the City. That was the reason they chose to accept that subdivision and do the deal.” Bailey, who is running for the mayor’s post, questions the timing of the paving issue. “It’s strictly political,” he stated. Bailey said he has kept his end of the bargain. “I had to get the roads ready to pave and [the City] would put the utilities in they didn’t want me putting the utililities in. They put the utilities down, the power in and everything was good.” Bailey said no deadline was set on the paving, but the City accepted ownership of the stormwater pond and both streets. However, he said the city has not kept up the roads. “They haven’t even mowed the grass. I continue to mow the grass on the shoulders of the road. When the roads were in bad condition, I got them to put rock down and I agreed to level it just to get it passable. They’ve done nothing in that subdivision for five years and they can’t understand why the roads are in such bad shape.” Bailey said he believes the City has wasted money in the process. “I went through every legal procedure required DEP stormwater draining, hired an engineer to engineer paving and ditches. I provided a set of engineered plans, then the City hired Preble-Rish to re-engineer and put out the bids for paving. That’s some of that waste. Back then, estimates to pave were at $56,000 and now it’s up to over $90,000 because of doing no maintenance whatsoever.” Councilman Blair noted in the meeting that the decision was made five years ago to do the paving on this project, but he wants to know how matters such as this will be handled in the future. Tony Arrant also suggested some decisions be made for future development. Stay tuned.City paving issue continued

What’s in a name? Ever gave it much thought? Me neither, till I heard a story about Coffee Names. Not the name of a coffee, but a person’s name that they use only at a coffee shop….excuse me, a coffee Bistro. What, you don’t have a coffee name? How un-with it can you be? The story I was listening to involved a young hip urban woman named Antoinette, every time she would give her name to the clerk at the coff………Bistro, the person would ask her how to spell it, and even then, they could never seem to pronounce it correctly. So, she made up her coffee name, Toni, easy to spell and easy to pronounce, and she only uses this name at the Bistro. The logical question is, why not just give out numbers? Well I’ll tell ya. “Toni” is not just giving an order like, black with sweet-n-low. Oh no, this order is a creation of her sophisticated coffee palette, a masterpiece of morning sunshine, Java o the Gods. This request is given to the Barista (dude who makes the coffee) an often unseen purveyor of the dream. You wait, chatting with friends or coworkers, until a well dressed wait person appears and announces to the world, “Cappuccino, Double ChocolateCarmel……topped with lime zest….for, Toni.” Antoinette receives her concoction with pride, and eight fifty plus tax and tip. My middle son, Zachary, and his wife, Jessie, just had our first grandson. I bring that up here for 3 reasons, one, to shamelessly tell you all we have our first grandson.. Secondly, the naming of a child is big stuff, some just use a JR, some tie in the maternal name, some pour over dozens of books, checking out meanings, some see what is trendy at the time, some even wait a week or so after the birth to name a child to get a gist of “who they are”. It reminds me of one of my favorite stories: In the Indian tribe, the oldest male of the tribe gets the honor of naming children. Late one day the elder was sitting, watching the sun set, surrounded by all the children of the tribe. One small boy looked up and asked, “GreatGrandfather, how do you come up with the names for all us children?” The elder stood, he told the child, “When a mother gives birth in our tribe, at the next sunrise I will emerge from my teepee. The first thing that catches my eye will be the name of the newborn. Look at Running Doe; the first morning of her life, I saw a female deer, running through the meadow. One morning, I saw a bird, going after a fish in the lake. That is how Diving Hawk got his name.” Great-Grandfather sat back down and the youngins pondered this. Then he spoke again, “Tell me, why do you ask Two Dogs Fighting Over a Dead Rabbit?” (sorry) Thirdly, to say that a paternal grand son will carry on the family name, important stuff, if you think about names, of course the last name puts you in a group, or family, which is a whole different story, but your given name, that is just you. Zach and Jessie poured through family names and came up with one that had not been used on either side, Blaine Conway Newsome. On the other end, Nancy and I choose John Wesley’s name from a combination of family names. Think of all the things we use names for. Most of us have nick names, these will differ from where you are, work, home, friends, sports. Every softball team has one member with “strike out” across the back of his jersey. We have to name our pets, our farms, our cars, who hasn’t came up with some colorful names for our cell phones. Speaking of phones, more to the point Caller ID, the name folks see when you call them. When we, more to the point, Nancy decided we would get cell-phones, I told her she would handle the whole thing, so, they had to “name” the account, which they did “Nancy’s.” Then when I had an issue, I called the help line and was told I could not do anything because I was not an “authorized” user. Nancy had to call and add me on the account. So, I imagine a person typing in the information on me being added; Account, Nancy’s. Status, authorized. Relationship, husband. Name, JK. I always know when I call someone who has caller ID, they are snickering. Why, you ask? What comes up on the screen when I call them is Nancy’s Authorized Husband JK. Go ahead and laugh, I’ll wait, nine times out of ten after I have explained it, and they have had time to think, they will say, “You know, if she has to name you as authorized husband, leads one to believe there is an UN-authorized one out there, snicker, snicker. (true story) Remember when sports stadiums had grand names, names of honor, Lambeau Field. Charlotte Motor Speedway, names so steeped in history they can be shortened to one word. Now, for a couple hundred thousand bucks, some owners will sell you the naming rights to their venue. Somehow “Nasonex Field” just wouldn’t catch on. It is crazy what lack of money has done to sports. Imagine buying tickets to Talladega and it reads, Pamper’s PullUps 500…….mandatory caution at lap 250 for a change of pants. Hey, I am not that far off. When I started thinking about writing this column, I had no idea just how much time we do spend naming things. How about name calling? It is not just the kids who do it, and never, ever let someone know a particular name bothers you, they will wear it out. How about that annoying guy who calls all the waitresses “Honey” or “Darling” you know she would love to use some of great-grandfathers tactics and tell him, “More coffee, Balding Beer Gut?” But unfortunately, that will cost you a tip every time. Even naming this column took much thought, I mean George Carlin already had the perfect one, Brain Droppings, (although, come to think of it, I might not want to see the word “droppings” next to my smiling face.) Nancy and I came up with the name on the way to Tennessee to see our granddaughter Scarlett. Now she got her name from her mother’s love of Gone With the Wind, good choice. Never a Dull Moment came to us and just seemed fitting. Later, I was going through some postings on Nancy’s family’s web site when I noticed that years ago my niece Linda had noted about something I had written, “Never a dull moment in Kinard” so, I suppose I should give her props for planting that seed in my mind. So, readers, give some thought to your name, and the different things you name in your world, and think about what your coffee name would be. Me, I think mine is short enough already, (I tell people that my mother gave me this name because she knew when I learned the ABCs I would learn to say my name, they say, well, why didn’t she name you AB? I tell them that would be silly, that’s my oldest brother’s name.) Call me what you want, just don’t call me late for supper.The County Record, AUGUST 18, 2010, P P a a g g e e 1 1 1 1 Legal NoticeIN THE CIRCUIT COURT OF THE 14TH JUDICIAL CIRCUIT IN AND FOR CALHOUN COUNTY, FLORIDA CASE NO.2010-0216-DR IDA P.HALL Petitioner and CLYDE CALLIO Respondent N O T I C E O F A C T I O N F O R D I S S O L U T I O N O F M A R R I A G E To:CLYDE CALLIO 408 CLAY STREET, APT.A MOBILE, ALABAMA YOU ARE NOTIFIED that an action has been filed against you and that you are required to serve a copy of your written defenses, if any, to it on IDA P.HALL whose address is 23381 NE CR 286, GRAND RIDGE, FL 32442 on or before SEPTEMBER 3, 2010, and file the original with the clerk of this Court at 20859 Central Ave., E., Room 130, Blountstown, FL 32424, before service on Petitioner or immediately thereafter.If you fail to do so, a default may be entered against you for the relief demanded in the petition.
