Little Harmony Engram is getting around on crutches after a freak acci-
dent during the Black History Parade. Her mother, Karen, holds the shoe
Harmony was wearing that likely saved her foot.


Six-year-old injured in

Black History Parade


by Kellf Peacock
A six-year-old Blountstown
girl is facing a long road to recov-
ery after her foot was' seriously
injured in a freak accident'during
the Black History Month Parade
Saturday. morning.
Harmony Engram, a'kinder-
garten student at Blountstown'
Elementary School, was smiling
and waving from the St. Paul
AME float as it glided through
downtown Saturday during the
festivities. Along the route, her
shoestring got caught in one of
the tires on the float. 'The pres-
sure pulled it in," her mother,
Karen Engram. tells The County
Record. "Her foot was twisted
between the tire and trailer. The
tire kept rotating with that metal
bar on top."
.,,i urdiriin to I iigr.rru. her
l.i.lalirr never made a sound
'- Iriig fn. InIld'-rii and no one
I!n I I,!iId '-en knew of the injury.
Nas D.:' wrnu, the driver of the
truck pulling the float, initially
suspected they had a flat tire and
pulled over to inspect it. That's
when Harmony said, "My foot's
stuck!"
After her foot was freed,


Harmony was taken to Calhoun-
Liberty Hospital and then to
Tallahassee Memorial Hospital.
Doctors had to clean and ban-
dage her mangled left foot. "All
the skin was off the top of her big
toe you can actually see the
bone," says Karen. 'There's a big
chunk off the top of her foot.
When I saw her foot and saw that
hole, I almost fainted."
Back at .home, the family now
prepares for several plastic surg-
eries to restore Harmony's foot.
Due to the pain, she has difficul-
ty sleeping and gets around the
best she can on crutches.
Her mother is just thankful
she told her daughter to wear
tennis shoes during the parade.
"She had wanted to where some
flimsy shoes and I wouldn't let
her;" says Karen. "If she wouldn't
have had a good shoe on, it would
have been even worse."
As she recovers, Harmony's
brothers and sisters, along with
school friends from Melody Frye's
class at BES, have been lifting
her spirits. Harmony had only
one request when she spoke with
The County Record Monday: 'Tell
everybody to be praying for me."

Jessie Mae Price shares


doll collection at event


"All Dolled Up" was the word
for it when the Blountstown
Woman's Club hosted the annual
District 2 Arts & Crafts Festival
Saturday, February 19, in the
Frink Gym at the Panhandle
Pioneer Settlement.
Appropriately, an Alice in
SWonderland Doll welcomed atten-
j dees when they stepped into the
"All Dolled Up" area -- lace table-
cloths, over pale blue with pink
and white runners down the cen-
ter and charming collectible dolls
as centerpieces.
The head table revealed the
beloved March Family: Marmee
with her "Little Women", Jo, Beth,
SAmy, and Meg.
Of course the irresistible
"Campbell Soup Kids" adorned
Sthe Buffet Table.
All these dolls were lent for the
Occasion by Jessie Mae Price from
her fabulous doll collection.
During Registration, the club-
%women enjoyed orange juice, cof-
fee, and delectable finger foods
beckoning so temptingly from the
Brunch area.
S District 2 Director Marilyn
Hogan conducted the General
Meeting which convened at 10:00
a.m. She was assisted by Ruth
Hall. \Vewahitchka. Adelaide
Ware, Panama City. Carolyn
McClellan. Blountstown/

Gulf Coast. and Ginge Ketcham.
S:Carolyn McClellan gave The
:Welcone and Deanna Neudecker
-provided the response. Then
-Marilyn Hogan updated everyone
:of the goals and accomplish-
ments of FFWC. She pointed out
how effective the District 2 clubs
had been in providing worthwhile
contributions to the community
and to the organization as a
whole. Next, a representative
from each of the clubs attending
spoke briefly about her club's
activities.
The group broke to indulge in
a self-guided tour of the
Settlement which had been
arranged by the Settlement.
Director Linda Smith.
At noon, everyone enjoyed a


"real" country dinner" prepared
by Frances Price and served buf-
fet style. Frances outdid herself
with those chicken and
dumplings, baked ham, sweet
potatoes, etc. We savored every
bite!
The Festival was adjourned
with the reading of the Club
Collect.
The left side of the room was.
alive with the handsome display
of Arts & Crafts items setup for
judging. We really appreciated
the time and effort Betty Kearney,
Carolyn Finlayson, and their
crew put in arranging the items
entered in the competition. It
was a long, time-consuming job.
But what a beautiful display!
Judges for the competition
were Jessica Bowden, Dona
Dunn, and Anna Layton. With all
the intriguing entries, the judges
had a difficult task.. We really
appreciate their donating their
time.
Local winners were: Blue rib-
bon Peck Eldridge, stained glass
hanging -and Aileen McQuagge,
Appropriate Office Jewelry; Third
- Jessie Mae Price, a love crewel
item; Honorable Mention-
Carolyn McClellan, Christmas
wreath.
The meeting wound. up with
Marilyn's closing comments and
Carolyn's announcements and
thanks to everyone who partici-
pated in the lovely event. She
urged everyone to tour the Arts &
Crafts display.
Special thanks go the Arts &
Crafts Committee for planning,
creating, and organizing the fab-
ulous decorations. Also, thanks
to all members who pitched in so
willingly to get ready for the
Festival.
We appreciate the Panhandle
Pioneer Settlement for letting the
Blountstown Woman's Club use
the Frink Gym for the Arts &
Crafts Festival and for helping us
so much in setting up the area.
Thanks too to everyone who
helped make the Festival such a
lovely and happy event.

ers end season 9-13


The Blountstown Tigers ended
their season last Tuesday night in
the BHS gym during the district
playoffs. Here's the highlights:
Blountstown 71, Wewa 33
BHS coasted into the semi-
finals of District with a 71-33 win
over the visiting Gators. BHS
jumped out early and put the
game away by halftime when they
Sled 45-17.
SJason Byrd led the Tigers with


15 points. Joseph Warren added
12 points. Kenshare Grant
chipped in with 10 points and 8
rebounds.
Port St. Joe 5S, Blountstown
51
BHS came out and played well
the opening 14 minutes and built
a 20-15 lead with 1:56 remaining
in the first half.
"We executed really well to that


point," Coach Jimmy Rogers
remarks. "We had only 3
turnovers and had executed our
game plan to perfection with the
exception on 6 missed layups.
But we have had a 6 minute spell
in every game that has kept us
from having a great year, tonight
was no exception."
Port St. Joe then took advan-
tage of three consecutive BHS
turnovers, to lead 22-21 at the
half. The Tigers opened the sec-
ond half with 5 miscues on their
first six possessions and began
fighting an uphill battle as they
trailed by 16 points (37-21) with
4:03 remaining. The Tigers cut
the lead back to eleven (42-31)
entering the final period.
The Tigers did not show any
quit and continued to chip away
at the lead and dwindle it down to
7 (53-46) with three minutes left.
The Tigers could not convert on
two steals and the Tiger Sharks
advanced to the District finals
defeating BHS 58-51. Port St. Joe
went on to capture the District


with a 24 point win over Sneads.
Kenshare Grant led the Tigers
with 16 points and 11 rebounds.
Jason Byrd added 13 points.
Jonathon Lockhart added 8
points, 6 rebounds and four
steals in his starting debut.
Jerome Cooper chipped in with 9
points.
"We were just so young and
inexperienced and there are so
many areas that I look back on
and know that I could have done
better in preparing them with a
better off-season," says Coach
Rogers. "We will do more this
year. This group has the talent to
be pretty good if we can get some
post play and become a little
more physical by next season. We
just have to work hard or harder
than everyone else does. I still
enjoy the teaching and love these
kids and believe in them, we just
have to pay the price, that
includes me. We did not do that
this past year."
The Tigers finished their sea-
son with a 9-13 record.

ATTEST:
RUTH W. ATTAWAY, CLERIK
TRUMAN GRANT, CHAIRMAN--


Mom charged


charges, the boys were removed
from their home once again and
placed in foster care with a pater-
nal aunt and uncle in the Bay
County community of
Springfield.
According to Sgt. Lamar Hobbs
of the Springfield Police
Department, the oldest boy was
playing in a sandbox around 5
p.m. Sunday when Howard and
Buchanan pulled up unan-
nounced. Buchanan reportedly
grabbed the boy and placed him
in the car while Howard burst
into the home uninvited.
"She had a stack of papers in
her hand and through them at
the aunt," Sgt. Hobbs tells The
County Record. "She spouted off
something like she 'was taking
her kids.' I think there was some
discussion, with the aunt telling
her that was not a good idea. She
then went into a room where the
two-year-old was with his grand-
mother who was visiting. She was
reading a book to the child at the
time. [Angela] slapped the grand-
mother in the face and took the
two-year-old out of her arms."
Howard reportedly headed for
the car where Buchanan and the
older son were waiting and they
took off. The family immediately
called 911 and an Amber Alert
was issued for the children.
Monday morning, Calhoun
County Sheriffs Office investiga-
tors headed for the Howard home
on Cook Road to see if anyone
was there. Although no one, was
at Angela's residence, Inv. Ken
Futch and Maj. Roman Wood,
went to the home of Angela's
mother and stepfather, Dorothy
Howard Smith and Willard
Smith, who reside on the same


Angela Howard


property. Steven Buchanan
reportedly answered the door at
the home and fit the description
of the man with Howard at the
time of the abduction.
Buchanan was taken into cus0
tody and allegedly told Maj. Wood
that he had gone with Angela,
along with her mother and step-
father, to Springfield. He report-.
edly advised that Dorothy and
Willard had stayed in the car as
Angela instructed. He said he
assisted Angela only after she,
yelled for him to come help her,.
He advised Angela and the boys
had gone to a home on Santa -
Rosa Beach.
The Walton County Sheriffs
Office was contacted and Howard,
was located at the residence
Buchanan had told authorities.,
about.
Both Howard and Buchanan
were in the custody of Springfield
authorities at press time. Sgf.^
Hobbs advised the children'*
would be turned over to DCF and,
placed in foster care again.

Vehicles collide at Azalea and Pear
Two vehicles collided in a downtown residential neighborhood in
Blountstown Thursday. According to the Blountstown Police Department, a
1999 Chevrolet car, driven by Diann Godwin Jackson of Blountstown, was
stopped at the corner of Azalea and South Pear just after 4 p.m. As she pro-
ceeded to turn south onto Pear, she reportedly drove into the path of a 2005
Chevrolet pickup driven by Noah Houston, also of Blountstown. Houston's
vehicle hit the left front fender of Jackson's car, causing it to spin around. It
ended up facing north in the southbound lane of Pear Street. Fortunately, no
one was seriously injured. Jackson was cited for failure to yield the right of
way. The accident was investigated by BPD Ptl. John Mallory.

CRIME REP ORT
Events Investigated During the Past Week by BPD and CCSD


:BPD seeks man on
:run suspected of
Stealing vault truck
-The Blountstown Police Department is
searching for a man who came into town
on a stolen truck, fled from authorities on
-foot, and possibly stole a vehicle from a
:local business.
The case began last Tuesday night
when a man, later identified as Jason
Franklin Atkins, fled on foot while being
questioned by a Calhoun County Sheriff's
Deputy and a highway patrol officer.
According to a BPD report, Major
Rodney Smith of the BPD met with
Deputy Nick Keller and an unnamed
Florida Highway Patrolman who advised
a- white male, 67" in height and 300
pounds, had given them a false name and
then fled toward Sutton Creek. Maj. Smith
and Sgt. Fred Tanner deployed K-9 Callie
and tracked the subject along the creek
bank to Charlie Johns Street, crossing the
bridge and heading north through an open
fence at the.old Blountstown Supply hard-
ware store.
A K-9 tracking team from Calhoun
Correctional Institution joined the search'
at this point, tracking west along the
Blountstown Greenway path to Big Bend
Sporting Goods where the track was lost.
Meanwhile, investigators interviewed
Atkins' sister at her home on Angle Street.
The woman advised her brother, known
as Jay, had arrived in town the night
before driving a red, older model Chevy
truck. The truck was found i--, h. r dr;. ,. .,
wiin no tag and the.venicle identification
number plate removed. Atkins' sister
reportedly lola aumhoriies her brother was
always in trouble and running from the
police." She further stated he would prob-
ably steal a vehicle and leave the area.
The BPD seized the Chevy pickup and
soon learned it was stolen from a man in
Eufaula, Alabama.
The following morning, a vault-truck
was reported stolen from Peavy Funeral
Home. Authorities later learned that an
officer from the Marianna Police
Department had pulled the vault truck
over around 5:30 a.m. and given the dri-
ver a verbal warning. Since..it wasn't
Reported stolen until just after 7:30 a.m.,
the officer had no way of knowing it.

Drug sales probe
leads to arrest
of Blountstown man
The Calhoun County Sheriff's Office
arrested a Blounistown man Sunday night
for allegedly growing marijuana in his
home.
Arrested was Ricardo Cesar
Gonzalez, 29, charged with manufacture
of marijuana, possession of less than 20
grams of cannabis; and possession of
drug paraphernalia:
According to the Srerl's Office. Dep.
Mark Mallory went to a mobile home on
Walter Potts Road in response to informa-
tion. received from Sgt. Adam Terry that
drugs were allegedly being sold at the
residence in Shady Oaks Trailer Park.
Dep. Mallory advised Gonzalez and a
female in the home ihai r mere had been'
reports of drugs being sold from the resi-
dence. Gonzalez reportedly stated he
only had some "personal dope" in his
home. The couple then turned over.a
clear plastic bag with less than 20 grams
of marijuana that had been stashed
behind a picture on a table in the living
room. The couple reportedly consented to
a search of their home and rolling papers,
two marijuana pipes, and a lighter were
discovered next to the living room couch.
A clay flower pot containing two small
marijuana plants was discovered in a bed-
room.


Routine traffic stop
leads to arrest for
meth possession
A' Blountstown man was arrested
Monday on a warrant stemming from a
January 20 traffic stop.
Kerry Grant Landrum, 33, has been
charged with possession of methamphet-
amine, less than 20 grams of marijuana,
and drug paraphernalia.
According to the Calhoun County
Sheriff's Office, Dep. Bliss Moreau and
BPD Ofc. Eddie Dalton pulled Landrum
over on SR 20 for having an inoperable
tag light and speeding,
After Dep. Moreau smelled alcohol
and noticed Landrum was shaking, he
received permission to search the vehicle
and located a cigarette package with a
clear cellophane wrapper that had a white
powder substance inside it. Landrum
allegedly stated it was meth and admitted
to taking a "bump" approximately one
hour before the traffic stop.
Also discovered were rolling papers, a
roach clip, and burnt aluminum foil con.
training burnt.crystals that field tested pos-
itive for meth. A partially burnt marijuana
cigarette, was found in the driver's side
floor board and two plastic bags of mari-
juana were discovered in the ash tray.

Dear Editor:
I would like to thank Steve
Mears, Brad Clark, and Matt
Clark for doing a controlled burn
at the Panhandle Pioneer
Settlement Saturday. They were
assisted by Jay Sweinhart,
Jordan Sweinhart, Saad Farooqi,
and Hunter Clark.
The wooded areas have never
been burned and were becoming
somewhat hazardous because of
the accumulation of dried straw,
leaves, etc. Steve learned of our
need by talking to Willard Smith
and asked the others to assist.
Brad and Matt are members of
the Westside Volunteer Fire,
Department.
One of the areas burned is
being turned into a memorial
area. Anyone who would like to
donate a camellia plant in memo-
ry of someone can contact me. I
will get it planted and have a
memorial sign placed by it.
Thanks,
Dona Dunn
Dear Editor:

I'm a member of the Florida
National Guard's State Family
Readiness Advisory Team, and
the state office sent me a link to a


Web site about a program that
provides various types of assis-
tance to military families.
Since we have several military
families in our area with deployed
soldiers, this might be something
to publicize in the paper so that
the families in our area who
haven't heard about this might
see it and use it as a resource.
Also, businesses that don't
know about the program could
learn about it and offer their ser-
vices.
Here's the link: http://www.

The County Record, FEBRUARY 23, 2005, Page 13


I Dear Calhoun County Citizens,

I would like to say how much I appreciate the help and
support Tommy Edwards has given the Tax Collector's
Office in our effort to provide the service of drivers license to
Calhoun County and surrounding counties. He has always
gone out of his way to help us and I appreciate it very much.

The service of drivers license is no longer cost effective for
our small county. We do not make enough money in fees to
pay one employee.

The space in the office is very limited. We don't have room
for the additional equipment that is required by the drivers
license department. I feel that due to the increase work
load, security and responsibility of drivers license my staff
does not have the time to adequately provide the other
services to the citizens of Calhoun County in an effective
manner.

Due to the reasons listed above and in the best interest of
my staff and the citizens of Calhoun County we will stop
issuing drivers license in the Tax Collector's Office of
Calhoun County.

We will continue to issue drivers license until February 28,
2005. I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
Sincerely,
Doris Burkett, Tax Collector, Calhoun County

Teacher

cont 'd


S"I can't say I always knew I
would be a teacher," she tells The
County Record. "I decided to
become a teacher when my col-
lege advisor asked me what I
wanted to major in and, so typical
of a freshman, I said I didn't
know. After looking at my grades
thus far, she suggested I major in
math education because of a high
demand for math teachers at the
time. Job security sounded
great!"
Back when she was just a mid-
dle schooler,' one of her own
teachers, Rose Cavin, became
one of her greatest influences.
"She believed in my academic
ability," Treva recalls. "I was an
average student, but she gently


pushed me to excel and, in turn,
gave me the confidence I needed
to go after whatever I wanted."
When she began her teaching
career, another Carr School leg-
end was one of her biggest sup-
porters. "Loretta Shelton took me
under her wing and has guided
me with her wisdom of the chang-
ing world of education and her
great love and concern for her
students," says Treva. "She has
been a great mentor!"
Teaching middle schoolers
isn't a task many in the educa-
tion field want to tackle. But, for
Treva, it was the group she was
most interested in working with.
"While in college, students were
assigned to schools for a week to

the Ctirrys were transported to
Gulf.Coast Medical Center.
Attaway was ejected from his
vehicle as it flipped over. He was
rushed to Bay Medical Center
arnd was in the surgical intensive
a' are unit at press time.
"He just needs a lot of
,prayers," a family friend told The
County Record Monday after-
noon. "I think he's basically on
his own. They removed his spleen
and his liver was lacerated, but
they were able to repair that. He
has b broke arm or hand. He lost
a lot of blood and he went into
shock. The doctors have just told
them it's basically all on

Just before press time

students in her classes. "The
biggest challenge is to reach every
child in a class where there are
varying academic levels," she
points out. "It takes careful and
creative planning to ensure that
everyone will have success on
their own cognitive level."
Believe it or not, Treva never
thought she'd be teaching math
and science. "These were my least
favorite subjectswhen I was in
middle and high school!" she
remarks. "Math did not come
easy for me, but I worked hard. I
feel that experience prepared me
the most for teaching because I
understand the frustration and
difficulties the students have first
hand. With that, in mind, I con-
sciously try to teach and explain
concepts in a manner that the
students can relate it to their own
experiences. It is very rewarding
when a student is able to apply a
math or science concept to his or
her own experiences and are able
to share and discuss it together
in class. This not only helps the
other students understand the
concept being discussed, it also
gives the student that is shaking
his or her experience a sense of
self worth which is so important
at the middle school level."
For those considering a career
as a teacher, Treva shares some


words of wisdom. "Teaching is a
very demanding career that
requires a lot of drive and com-
mitinent but, most of all, genuine
concern for your students," she
emphasizes. "Upon being a dedi-
cated teacher, your students will
respond to that commitment and
abundant rewards will follow as
well as self gratification of a job


well done."
Darryl Taylor, Jr., Principal at
Carr School, says Treva is a ded-
icated teacher on every level and
he extends his congratulations to
her for this outstanding achieve-
ment.
Treva and her husband,
, Randy, have two children, Randa
and Greyson.
