A 65-year old Brantley County man whose body was pulled from a
pond at the back of his property last week apparently died of natural
causes, according to Brantley County coroner Richard Fox.
Fox said Walter Allen Shellhorn, 65, just happened to
be near the edge of the pond when he died.
The body was discovered lying face down in
the water, according to Brantley County Sheriff ’s
Department reports.
Deputy James Mercier reported that the body
was found by Timothy Landon Davis, 47, on the
victim’s property on Knox Road near its intersec-
tion with Hightower Road.
Fox also dispelled rumors that the victim’s body
was burned or decomposed beyond recognition.
“He was in a normal state with very little decomposition,” he said.

Although he was born in Ware
County, Joel Chambless was as
much a native Brantley Countian
as anyone, injecting himself into
the fabric of the county — and the
city of Nahunta — in countless
ways over his 49 years, most recent-
ly as the owner of Joel Chambless
Funeral Home and a member of the
Nahunta City Council.
Joel was the son of Guy
Chambless, who along with his wife
Ruth established the Guy Chamb-
less Funeral Home in Nahunta in
1957 and, like other members of the
family, grew into the family busi-
ness, graduating from the Cincin-
nati College of Mortuary Science
in 1981.
He was the youngest coroner
ever elected in the county — a
record that still stands — and held
that post for three terms.
He was a member and former
chief of the Nahunta Volunteer
Fire Department and a member of
the Camden Masonic Lodge #391

Things you need to know
Our readers write back
O’Quinn blasts Express
By Greg O’Quinn
This is in response to an opinion column
in this week’s Brantley County Express titled
“Commissioners To Advertise for County
Manager.” I would like to express my frustra-
tion with editor & publisher Mittie Vaughn’s
Please understand that I do not see local
county government as a professional sport
consisting of “fans” and “rivals.” Twice in
her article, Ms. Vaughn stated that I am “no
fan” of County Manager Chuck Madray. She
is correct. I am a professional colleague of
Mr. Madray and one of his superiors in our
county’s chain of command.
Vaughn’s personal displeasure with
my pronunciation of Madray’s name is a
distraction to the taxpayers of this county.
Our citizens purchase her paper as their
legal organ in pursuit of material that can
be used to make informed decisions. County
Manager Chuck Madray has never cor-
rected my pronunciation of his name and, if
I am mispronouncing it, I am not doing so
intentionally. In my opinion, this topic is
petty and hardly worthy of the attention it
has received in her newspaper.
My goal upon election was to bring
professionalism and efficiency to our local
county government. At our most recent meet-
ing Commissioner Linton Herrin asked that
applications be accepted for the County Man-
ager’s position and I simply agreed. With
the item’s placement on the Consent Agenda
for the upcoming meeting it would appear
as though the entire Board agrees with the
proposal made by Commissioner Herrin.
The time to praise Mr. Madray’s
service to the U.S. State Department has
passed. Those qualifications are no longer
relevant to his current position. I based my
decision to accept applications for his posi-
tion solely on his performance as a County
Manager during my time as an elected of-
Brantley County deserves a competent,
honest, experienced and responsive County
Manager. I will work diligently to find them
one. Until that happens I will conduct myself
in a professional manner in regards to my
relationship with Mr. Madray and I will not
compromise my expectations of his job per-
formance. The Board has stated that he will
have the opportunity to re-submit his applica-
tion and I will give it my full consideration. I
will base my decision on his job performance
along with his qualifications.
But, keep in mind, the job description ap-
proved by the previous Board of Commission-
ers clearly requires the County Manager to
hold a four-year college degree or the equiva-
lent in county management experience. Mr.
Madray has not offered any proof that he had
either at the time of his original hire date.
I thank you for taking the time to read
my perspective and understand that I wrote
this because I want to see the citizens of
our community receive objective, unbiased
reports on what is really happening in their
local government.
(O’Quinn sits in the Post 2 seat on the
Brantley County Board of Commission-
ers. His complaint prompted the following
exchange of message with commissioner
Charlie Summerlin.)
Thanks for your email. Mittie Vaughn
was just telling it like it is happening in
Brantley County. As you and Ronald Ham
were being elected as county commissioners
the street talk was you two were being elected
to help get rid of the county manager and go
back to the old system. If you get rid of the
manager , will the new county attorney, Mr.
Lee, be next? The street talk is that I am next.
I am looking forward to your reply.
Charlie (Summerlin)
“Street talk” is a dangerous source of in-
formation just like an opinionated newspaper.
I totally disagree with the way our coun-
ty was forced to move to the County Manager
form of government by the previous Board. I
have not tried to hide my opinion on this
But that is the past and I support the
Management/ Administrator form of
Government. I think that this type of gov-
ernment makes sense based on the fact that
most counties in the state are moving in that
direction. With the right person in the posi-
tion of County Manager it would eliminate
the politics involved with running a govern-
ment in a small town. It would also improve
efficiency and effectiveness within our Board
and in our meetings. While I may not agree
with the way this system was put into place, I
have no interest in returning to the previous
form of government.
Our current County Attorney was hired
by the majority of our Board and I will con-
tinue to support him. I have not disguised the
fact that I believe he is costing the taxpayers
of this county a lot more money than was
necessary. I am not spending my time on the
BOC planning ways to “get rid of ” anyone.
Charlie, you are an elected official that
answers to all of the taxpayers of Brantley
County. If your “street talk” says that you
are next as stated in your email, then it is not
me that you should be worried about. I only
have one vote.
Thank you for the response and I look
forward to working with you tonight in our
regular meeting.

UGA researcher says state
has the edge in biofuels
Editor’s note: K.C. Das
is an associate professor of
engineering with the Uni-
versity of Georgia College
of Agricultural and Environ-
mental Sciences, the director
of the Biorefining and
Carbon Cycling Program and
manager of CAES biofuel
research. The following is an
abridged version of a Q&A
on the status of bioenergy
research in Georgia and its
future. It originally appeared
in the 2009 CAES Environ-
mental Report magazine.
Does Georgia have an
advantage in bioenergy
Yes, because we can
grow great quantities of
biomass through our agricul-
ture and forestry industries.
Universities like University
of Georgia, Georgia Tech
and others provide the tech-
nology. The UGA Complex
Carbohydrate Research
Center is strong in the bio-
logical sciences. In addition,
the Agricultural Innovation
Center and the Georgia
Environmental Facilities
Authority assist companies
interested in getting into the
business through their “One
Stop Shop.”
How much petroleum-
based energy can be replaced
with bioenergy in Georgia?
About 30 percent of our
energy needs can be met
with bioenergy today. By
patching together multiple
strategies, we can achieve
this amount. This would
include burning chicken
litter to heat farms in north
Georgia, fermenting out-
dated cola products for etha-
nol, generating biogas from
cow manure on dairy farms,
harvesting landfill gas for
electricity and producing
cellulosic ethanol from pine
waste in south Georgia. All
of these projects exist today
in Georgia and many more
are coming on line.
Cellulosic ethanol is be-
ing promoted as part of the
next generation of bioenergy.
Is it economically viable?
Yes, at the current price
of oil, it is economically
viable. But we must mass
produce it. It should be in
large scale production in five
In your opinion, is any
one feedstock more viable
than another? Algae shows
great promise because it
grows rapidly in warm
climates like what we have
in Georgia. It can produce
2,000 gallons of oil per acre.
Soybeans generate approxi-
mately 50 gallons for each
acre. Extracting the oils from
the algae is difficult, and we
are working to resolve this
What kind of biofuel
research does your team at
UGA conduct?
Essentially, we try
different processes on a
variety of agricultural and
forestry wastes and fuel
crops to create bioenergy.
The wastes include peanut
shells, poultry litter and
forestry residues and promis-
ing fuel crops include algae,
bamboo and kenaf. We’re
not opposed to trying any
feedstocks as long as there
are great quantities available.
Through a thermochemical
process called pyrolosis, we
heat biomass in the absence
of oxygen to produce oil, gas
and charcoal. UGA engineers
and soil scientists collabo-
rate to characterize the char
and determine its value as a
fertilizer or soil amendment.

We examine the entire
carbon cycling process.
Gasification is another
thermochemical process we
can use to make liquid fuels.
This is done by heating the
feedstock with a little oxygen.
UGA CAES scientists work
with researchers in the UGA
Warnell School of Forest
Resources to convert wood
waste from sustainably man-
aged forests into cellulosic
ethanol. We look at the full
life cycle of making biofuels
and part of that involves
pre-processing the waste.
Biomass is heated at low
temperatures to increase its
energy density and remove
less desirable properties.
This works well for wood
waste and makes it easier to
transport and more efficient
in co-firing with existing
power plants.
Do you think we will
achieve the goal set by the
national 25 by ‘25 Alliance to
produce 25 percent of our en-
ergy from the nation’s farms
and forests?
With the current high
price of oil, there is a strong
incentive to meet it. However,
we need more investment in
research, development and
production. The Europeans
are advanced in bioenergy
production because they
have a high tax on gasoline
that is used to fund it.
