According to Laddie Williams, who chairs the hospital board, GilliardÂ’s decision to resign was based on finding a job closer to his home in south Georgia. Â“He bought a home in Bainbridge about a year ago and his wife was staying up there,Â” says Williams. Â“He got the chance for another job and could stay at home at night. ItÂ’s better for his family.Â” The hospital board and staff members gave him a going away party Friday. Â“We presented him with a plaque of appreciation for all heÂ’s done for us,Â” Williams remarks. Leading the hospital now is Phillip Hill who has taken on the roll of interim administrator. Hill has been serving as assistant administrator, as well as EMS director. Williams says a search is underway for a permanent administrator and noted Hill is being considered for the post. Â“WeÂ’re not going to be making a hasty decision,Â” Williams says.

Shiver pulled a vehicle over just after 1 a.m. for faulty equipment. Moore, who was the passenger, seemed very nervous to Sgt. Shiver and was shaking uncontrollably. A search of the vehicle turned up a pill bottle in the front passenger seat with powder and crack cocaine. Moore was placed under arrest and began complaining of stomach pain when he arrived at the Liberty County Jail. He then stated that he had eaten some of the crack cocaine, resulting in his trip to the hospital. Moore remained in custody at the Liberty County Jail as of press time.Church burglarized, local man arrestedA Blountstown man accused of breaking into a local church was arrested last week.

The County Record, SEPTEMBER 1, 2010, P P a a g g e e 2 2 Tigers tame Freeport in Classic Political Advertisement Paid for and Approved by Danny Hassig for School Board District 5 Calhoun Co unty Citizens of Calhoun County Thank You Thank you for your continued support and for electing me to represent you as the District 5 School Board member for the next four years. I am very appreciative for the faith you have put in me and promise you I will continue to do whatÂ’s in the best interest of our children. Additionally, I will work diligently to ensure your tax dollars are spent wisely. Missed Meetings There is one issue that came up during the campaign that I would like to clear up. I didnÂ’t address the issue during the campaign because I didnÂ’t want to take part in any type of negative campaigning. During the last couple of weeks of the campaign there were flyers being circulated that I had missed a total of 18 regular meetings, special meetings or workshops over the past four years. The flyer insinuated that I neglected these meetings, but still collected a paycheck. The truth is that I did miss the meetings, but not because I was derelict in my duty. The meetings were missed for two reasons: First, because I am a Lieutenant Colonel in the Army Reserve and have proudly served my country for the past 28 years. Each year I am called up for active duty, training, schooling and missions in South America. Occasionally there are conflicts with school board meetings, special meetings and workshops because of my service to our country. The second reason I missed meetings was because I was taking my son, Adam, to his cancer treatments at MD Anderson located in Houston, TX. For several months I had to take Adam every three weeks to Houston and spend a week in Texas at the hospital while he took his chemotherapy treatments. I continue to take Adam to Houston every six months for his checkups. In addition, often I was able to call in by phone to the meeting while on active duty, as well as from the hospital in Texas to represent my district. I feel it is important to let you know why the meetings were missed and to set the facts straight. I am very passionate about my duties as your representative and will continue to work hard to ensure our children are always put first. Thanks again for your continued support.

Bessie Wynn, who is 102 years old, and her sister, Mary L. Hand, age 97, received their honorary high school diplomas Sunday, Aug. 15, at the W.T. Neal Civic Center during the Davis Family Reunion. Mr. Tommy McClellan and Dr. Debbie Williams presided over the ceremony. It was an emotional evening for everyone who witnessed the ceremony including the honorees. After receiving their diplomas, the new graduates even got the opportunity to throw their hats at the end. Bessie Wynn, who was born April 5, 1908, was supposed to go to high school in Pensacola, Florida, but, tragically, her mother died in a drowning accident and she had to return home to help with raising her siblings. She has been a poet most of her life, reciting her poetry throughout the United States and Bermuda. Even at 102, she is still reciting her poetry. She learned all the childrenÂ’s poems as a child so if they forgot them, she could tell them what they forgot. Bessie worked as a maid for the Hollingers for almost 35 years and was forced to retire when she outlived both of her employers. Bessie was in her 80s when she retired. In her younger days, Bessie made and sold jewelry and also worked in the lunchroom at Mayhaw School. She was den mother for Future Homemakers of America and made basketball uniforms for the first girlsÂ’ team at Mayhaw. She was elected as queen of St. Paul AME Church and won the talent competition in the Golden Girls contest held in Blountstown. She is the wife of the late Rev. Samuel Wynn and had four children, Samuel (deceased), Mary Katherine, Annie Laura, and Jimmie Ola. Mary L. Davis Hand was born Oct. 15, 1912, in Bristol, Florida. She attended school at St. Paul AME Church and DunbarThe County Record, SEPTEMBER 1, 2010, P P a a g g e e 3 3 Art Alive 2010!

This will be an ongoing study the first Monday of each month from September through May. Guiding principles of this study are: 1. Historical context, As we explore how Revelation speaks to us today, we first will look at how the book spoke to the lives and circumstances of the original Christian churches long ago. 2. Recognize that a range of possible interpretations of Revelation are in play, but that it's not "anything goes." 3. We will take the opportunity to look beyond the literal approach. 4. We will embrace the message of hope instead of fear. This book was not written to terrify people but to wake them up and to sustain their hope when things seemed the most bleak. 5. Explore the sense of urgency for God's realm. While Revelation is about the future, most of all it teaches Christians about faithfulness in the present. It gives us eyes to see God's vision of hope the "New Jerusalem" breaking into our world even now. Revelation expects communities of Jesus' followers to live transformed lives now, here on earth not just in the future or in heaven. The material for the study is very good and we are looking forward to sharing an interesting time together. The church is located on Evans Avenue, next to Peavy's Funeral Home.

BY KELLI PEACOCK DUNN News Editor BlountstownÂ’s own Julie Leonard Smith made a trip last month to her old stomping grounds in Virginia and itÂ’s one she wonÂ’t ever forget. Back in the early 1980s, Julie called Virginia home and dove into the deep end of the political scene, becoming the first woman from her area to be elected to the House of Delegates. She recently made a trip back to the Commonwealth of Virginia to give her 13year-old grandson Carter Old, who resides in Chesapeake, a first-hand civics lesson. Â“We arrived and drove into Capitol Square where only official vehicles can go in,Â” says Julie. Â“A policeman greeted us, then Clerk of the House Bruce F. Jamerson came out to meet us and took us on a three hour private tour of Â‘Mr. JeffersonÂ’s HouseÂ’ as Virginians refer to it since the building was designed by Thomas Jefferson.Â” When Julie initially spoke with Jamerson when planning the trip, he told her the capitol had undergone an extensive renovation, but didnÂ’t go into any details, explaining sheÂ’d just have to see it. Â“I was startled at what I saw,Â” she remarked. Â“They did a $104.5 million restoration to put it back in the original state like when Jefferson built it.Â” Rich in history, VirginiaÂ’s Capitol was inspired by the Maison Carree in Nimes, France. Jefferson was serving as ambassador to France at the time and agreed to design it from there. Governor Patrick Henry laid the cornerstone in 1785. Carter, along with his mom, Rene Old, who is JulieÂ’s daughter, was treated to a behind the scenes tour of Mr. JeffersonÂ’s House. Â“This child went in every nook and cranny,Â” said Julie. Â“My daughter had been to the capitol when I served and she was just taken aback. It had been so old and dank and dark when I served.Â” The last stop on the tour was the House Chamber where Carter had the chance to sit in his grandmotherÂ’s old seat. Â“Bruce gave him a little lecture on the House of Delegates and some things his grandmother had done when she was there,Â” Julie said, adding her seat was in an interesting spot. Â“I sat in the left well of the House which is known asThe County Record, SEPTEMBER 1, 2010, P P a a g g e e 5 5 B B R R A A G G S S H H O O P P H H A A P P P P Y Y " 1 1 s s t t ' B B I I R R T T H H D D A A Y Y ! !

Dear Calhoun County Voters: Thank you for entrusting me with the privilege of serving on the Calhoun County Board of Commissioners for the past four years. Through this service, I have been given the unique opportunity to gain insights, experiences, and skills that would not have been available to me otherwise. I have met people from local, regional, and state levels, who have taught me a great deal about the legal and moral aspects of serving as Commissioner. In addition, I have been rewarded with opportunities to meet and visit with the residents in District 2 and become personally acquainted with good folks whose paths probably would have never crossed with mine. I give God all the glory for this experience, especially for the personal positive growth and knowledge I have gained. Under leadership from me and the other Commissioners, Calhoun County has seen many positive improvements and accomplishments during these four years, many of which will continue to evolve in future years.

School in Apalachicola, Florida. As her sister, Bessie, her education goals changed after their motherÂ’s death. A year after World War II, she and her sister, Estelle, opened Russ and Hand Grocery in Blountstown. It is still open today. Fortunately, they had a very intelligent father who, in spite of not having gone to school himself, was able to teach them math and reading which may explain why there has never been a cash register in the store. Mary is a member of Choir #1, primary Sunday School teacher, and the Missionary Board at St. Paul AME Church. She is also president of the Tempress Club.

Not only was Representative Coley successful in getting the Bankhead-Coley Cancer Research Program and the King Biomedical Research Program made ongoing programs, the Blountstown native also was instrumental in securing a combined $42.2 million for the two programs for the current year. An additional $30 million was appropriated for research infrastructure and capacity needs at three Florida-based institutions, the Moffitt Cancer Center in Tampa, UF Shands Cancer Center in Gainesville, and the University of MiamiÂ’s Sylvester Cancer Center.

Legend has it that in the early 1900s, the people who sat in that left side well, when someone rose to speak and they did not agree with them, one would start coughing and then the entire left well would cough. When I served, we were debating raising the drinking age. When the patron of the bill was speaking in favor, someone coughed and then the entire left well started coughing.

BY SHARLYN SMITH The Altha Cross Country team has had a tremendous effect on our school. It has become a major highlighted sport for both our girls and boys. Last year, our boysÂ’ team placed 7th out of 14 at Districts, only a few seconds from making it to Regionals. Our girlsÂ’ team went to districts placing 4th out of 14, making their way to Regionals in Gainesville, Florida. One of the teamÂ’s top runners, Senior Rebekah Wiltse, maintained one of the fastest times throughout the whole season. She has been awarded a cross country scholarship to Chipola College. Â“I was very excited when I got the scholarship offer for Rebekah,Â” Coach Maggie Sewell remarks. Â“It could not have happened to a better student-athlete. Beck is a very hard worker and always gives 110%. I know that she will be an asset to ChipolaÂ’s Cross Country team and I wish her all the best.Â” The renewable scholarship will cover RebekahÂ’s college tuition. She will continue her running career with the Chipola Indians.

The Blountstown Tigers put together a strong fourth quarter scoring drive Friday night to defeat Freeport 23-12 in the preseason kickoff classic for both schools. FreeportÂ’s only two scores came on two Tiger mistakes in the first quarter. After that, the Tiger defense buckled down and allowed Freeport only 49 yards rushing and 47 yards passing for the entire game. Â“We were very pleased with our performance in this game,Â” coach Greg Jordan said Tuesday. Â“Our defense held a pretty good team to less than 100 total yards and offensively we racked up over 300 yards on them. Defensively, that was about as good as we can play for this early in the year. We played hard and put a lot of hats on the ball,Â” Jordan stated proudly. The Tigers did suffer one setback in the game with the loss of Jawon Mosley with a broken hand. Mosley will be out for at least four weeks. There were no other significant injuries in the game according to coach Jordan. The Tigers will travel to Sneads this Friday night. Sneads defeated Graceville in impressive fashion 35-18 last Friday in their kickoff classic. Â“TheyÂ’re big up front and have one of the best runningbacks we will face this year. We will have to really swarm to the ball on defense and protect the football and score when we have opportunities,Â” Jordan added. On the TigersÂ’ first possession, junior runningback Ryan McIntyre displayed his speed as he raced untouched to the endzone for a touchdown. The PAT failed and the Tigers led early, 6-0. After an interception by Anthony Williams, the Tigers were in business again at the Freeport 25. A pass behind the line was ruled a lateral and picked up by a Freeport player and returned 75 yards for a touchdown. Their PAT also failed and the score was tied 6-6. After an Anthony Curry punt pinned Freeport at their own 4, Dowling Lee caught the Freeport runningback in the endzone for a safety and the Tigers led 8-6. On the TigersÂ’ very next offensive play, Freeport picked up a fumble and returned it 40 yards for a touchdown. The PAT failed, but Freeport led 128. The Tigers regained the lead two series later when senior Brandon Smith broke into the open and raced 78 yards for a touchdown. Alexander GarrettÂ’s PAT was good and the Tigers were back on top, 15-12. A big interception by lineman Byron Hall early in the fourth quarter stopped Freeport on a fourth and seven play at the Tiger 22 yard line. The Tigers took over and marched 82 yards in 10 plays capped off by a 10 yard dash to the corner by junior Marquel Thomas. Quarterback Charles Buggs, Jr. scored on the two-point conversion to give the Tigers the 23-12 final score. Coach Jordan tipped his cap to offensive linemen, Corey McClellan, Dowling Lee, Byron Hall, Patrick Pitts, Timmy Girardot and Frankie Murrell for their efforts Friday night. McIntyre led the Tigers with 87 yards on 14 carries followed by Jawon Mosley with 31 yards. Dowling Lee led the defense with 7 tackles followed by McIntyre with 5. Paul and Jawon Mosley had 4 each.The County Record, SEPTEMBER 1, 2010, P P a a g g e e 7 7 by Blountstown Tiger Head Coach Greg Jorda n The Tigers kicked off the 2010 season with a hard fought 23-12 victory over the visiting Freeport Bulldogs. The Tigers were eager to erase the past memories of playing Freeport last year with three losses to them in 18 months. The 2010 Tigers were not to be denied the victory, but it was not easy or cheap. The Tigers lost starting fullback/linebacker Jawon Mosley for 4-6 weeks with a broken hand. There were several other players that were banged up that will hopefully be able to play through those injuries. Let's start with the defense. What an effort by all those players, holding a very good Freeport team scoreless on offense for the night. It was a total team effort on defense with multiple players in on almost every tackle. We tried to not give up any big plays that could change momentum and, defensively, we did just that. It was on offense where the Tigers gave up points with two fumbles returned for touchdowns for FreeportÂ’s only points of the night. The Tigers were able to control things for the most part on the ground with 305 rushing yards to FreeportÂ’s 49 yards. The offense came through with a big drive in the fourth quarter with a 15-12 lead to put the game out of reach at 23-12. It was a good win for our program over another well coached team. Next week, the Tigers travel to Sneads to take on the Pirates for the start of the regular season. Sneads defeated Graceville 35-18 in their classic and it was not that close. Sneads has a big offensive line with one of the best running backs in the area. He had three TD's against Graceville to lead their potent rushing attack. We will have our hands full to say the least as we travel to Sneads. We need all the Tiger fans to make the short trip to Sneads this week. Let's pack out our home side and have standing room only!!

Adolescence can be such an awkward time for children. They seem too old too be young and too young to old. Much of the time the children feel that they do not fit in anywhere. These feelings are all too real for sixth graders who are transitioning from elementary to middle school. This time of change can also be difficult for parents who are struggling through sixth grade right along with their children. Blountstown Middle School recognizes that many parents would like help navigating the treacherous waters of adolescence and will host an Open House for PARENTS ONLY on Tuesday, September 7, from 5:00 Â– 6:30 p.m. The Open House is a chance for parents to meet with teachers, check on grades, learn about their childrenÂ’s routines and requirements during sixth grade, and to become aware of changes their children will experience during the next three years. Sensitive information may be discussed, so parents are asked to make supervision arrangements that allow the parents to attend the meeting without their children. Please call Blountstown Middle School at 674-8234 for more information. MARIANNAÂ—Chipola College will offer three basic automotive courses which are open to the public.

BY KELLI PEACOCK DUNN News Editor If youÂ’ve been involved with Blountstown Boy Scouts in recent years, youÂ’ve likely met Tom Aycock who has devoted countless hours working with local Scouts. Little did he know when he was deployed to Iraq with the Florida Army National Guard, heÂ’d wind up working with Scouts on the other side of the globe. A member of the Victory Base Council of Iraqi Boy Scouts, MSG Aycock worked in an area near Baghdad for nine months where he and his fellow soldiers rekindled the Iraqi Boy Scout/Girl Guide program. Â“I never in a million years thought I'd deploy to a war zone as a soldier and be teaching International Scouting values to that country's youth,Â” Aycock remarks. Â“It was an amazing experience to say the least and the movement there has grown bigger and bigger.Â” Aycock says there is an ongoing effort to get Iraq back into the World Organization of Scouting, a group they were expelled from after Saddam Hussein began using Boy Scouting to feed his military. Â“The work we did for the Scouting movement there (and continues still today), is not only building strong bonds between Iraq and America and the other allied countries working there, but it's giving the Scouts a real sense of community responsibility and patriotism to a country that is slowly getting back on its feet after a very long war on terrorism,Â” Aycock points out. The results of his and the other soldiersÂ’ work with the youth is evident in the childrenÂ’s behavior.The County Record, SEPTEMBER 1, 2010, P P a a g g e e 9 9 BlountstownElementary School News Open House, Book Fair Picture Day are plannedTitle IMeeting, Open House BES will be hosting its annual Title I Meeting and Open House for 2nd, 4th, and 5th grades on Tuesday, September 7th, from 5:00 to 6:00 p.m. We invite all parents to come and meet with your child's teacher.

I knew him as a person who was always a joy to be around for he always had something funny to say to make you smile. Just for humor he didn't mind telling those young girls "hey back up here". I knew him as a man who left Blountstown for a long time but when he came back he never looked over anybody. Everyone was his friend even those who done him wrong at times. A cousin, a friend, a joy to be around, always with a smiling face that's the way I knew him to be. I say sleep on cousin, Lesley, as I called you, take your rest from the troubles of this mean old world. Many loved you but nobody loved you like God the Creator.

Come and Enjoy Our Th an k Y ou Fish F ry S a t., S e pt. 4 1:00 PM at Cooper s Par kWhen he first arrived in Iraq, Aycock says it was typical for young boys to run up to him, begging for pretty much anything they could get. Â“Mister, mister, give me your watch, give me candy, give me your sunglasses,Â” he recalls them saying, adding, Â“It was not unheard of for them to grab your stuff and take off. The children were very used to free stuff that required no earning on their part; most of them lived in wartorn neighborhoods and material items were in high demand.Â” Several months later, after the soldiers worked with a group of 20 plus boys through Scouting, they could tell their attitudes were changing. Aycock says he was Â“starting to feel the tug of the heart strings due to my impending departure from Iraq,Â” when he headed to his final Scout meeting with the group before traveling back to the states. Â“The same boy, who nine months earlier would be begging from me, ran up to me and said, Â‘Mr. Tom, Mr. Tom, what will you teach us today?Â’Â” Those words gave Aycock and his fellow soldiers an overwhelming sense of accomplishment and they knew their mission was successful. And just to prove how far that one little boy has come, Aycock says, Â“Last I heard, his troop voted him in as Senior Patrol Leader.Â”MSG Tom Aycock and a fellow soldier are shown having fun with some of the youth they met in Iraq.Scouts in Iraq cont'd The Apalachicola River Indian Community Conference originally scheduled for September 11th at the W.T.

A big thank you to everyone that helped make the recent spaghetti fundraiser a great success!Arrow of Truthby Rev. R.W. Waterman NOT BY HUMAN WISDOMI Corinthians 1:17 It is characteristic in prideful, sinful humanity that mankind seeks some means to justify himself, to become acceptable and comfortable with himself and God. It's as if there is a little voice inside wanting to cry, "See I can be good!" If there were a human process for justification and salvation, it would be simple for God to point it out. The Cross would be unnecessary. But the Cross by nature and definition excludes all other means of acceptability to God. If the Cross is the way then no other way can be valid. If any human endeavor were enough, then gifted people would have the edge on the rest. The intelligence quotient would become an indication of salvation's likelihood. The effective impact of the power of the Cross in our lives comes through faith, not wisdom or ability. People who have grown up in the church, who have been trained and who have sought all their lives to be good, sometimes have unexpected difficulty transferring trust away from their well-intentioned efforts to total dependence on the Cross. Our efforts only complicate what God has made simple. We should always remember, we never graduate from the necessity of childlike faith and trust in Jesus. 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
Over 900 Team Development and Event Chairs for the American Cancer Society Relay for Life traveled to Orlando Friday for training. Among them was Blountstown's own Joanne Anderson Harris. One of the keynote speakers was State House Representative Marti Coley. (R-Marianna) who was named the American Cancer Society's Florida Division's 2010 Legislator of the Year in the Florida House of Representatives. Coley, who has served in the house since 2005, was recognized for her successful efforts to promote state funded cancer research.

The County Record, SEPTEMBER 1, 2010, Page 14 No oil has flowed into the Gulf for weeks. But we know this is just the beginning of our work. BP has taken full responsibility for the cleanup in the Gulf and that includes keeping you informed. Restoring Gulf Communities We canÂt undo this tragedy. But we can help people get back on their feet. We have been working with impacted communities since day one. Partnering with local governments and community organizations, my job is to listen to peopleÂs needs and frustrations and Â“nd ways to help. We have 19 community centers and teams in four states, listening and helping. Restoring The Economy BP is here in Gulf communities with shrimpers, fishermen, hotel and restaurant owners, helping to make them whole. More than 120,000 claim payments totaling over $375 million have already gone to people affected by the spill. We have committed a $20 billion independent fund to pay all legitimate claims, including lost incomes until people impacted can go back to work. And none of this will be paid by taxpayers. BP has also given grants of $87 million to the states to help tourism recover and bring people back to the Gulf beaches. Restoring The Environment WeÂre going to keep looking for oil and cleaning it up if we Â“nd it. Teams will remain in place for as long as it takes to restore the Gulf Coast. And weÂve dedicated $500 million to work with local and national scientiÂ“c experts on the impact of the spill and to restore environmental damage. Thousands of BP employees have their roots in the Gulf. We support over 10,000 jobs in the region and people here are our neighbors. We know we havenÂt always been perfect, but we will be here until the oil is gone and the people and businesses are back to normal. We will do everything we can to make this right. I was born in New Orleans. My family still lives here. We have to restore the Gulf communities for the shrimpers, Â“shermen, hotel and restaurant owners who live and work here.
