City urged to enforce code ordinance



Amnesty Week monthly


-by Kelli Peacock
Z City of Blountstown officials
are going the extra mile on their
pledge to clean up the communi-
ty.
SOver the past few years,
amnesty week has been held
twice a year, allowing citizens to
place their old furniture, broken
appliances, and general junk on
the curb to be collected by city
i anitation workers and disposed
free of charge. Recently, city
council members decided to go
Sone step further and offer the free
clean up week once a month


throughout the year.
Beginning immediately, the
last week of every month will be
designated as amnesty clean-up,
week. As always, allowable items
are furnishings, bicycles, appli-
ances, air conditioners, and mis-
cellanebus junk. Items that will
not be picked up are chemicals,
paints, batteries, tires, building
debris, and commercial or con-
struction debris.
In addition to amnesty week,
the city will pick up limbs and
yard debris every Monday.
Citizens are reminded to sepa-
rate limbs and junk items'from


regular garbage.
At the February City Council
meeting, Doris Traylor, chair of
Keep Calhoun County Beautiful
(KCCB), applauded city officials
on their efforts to improve the
quality of life for .the citizens of
Blountstown. 'The interest and
support that Mayor Winston
Deason has given through the
years to KCCB is indicative of
what we are looking forward to in
his tenure as mayor," she
remarked. "City Manager Jimmy
Hand has, always been receptive

Girlfriend of suspect



discusses murder case


by Kelli Peacock
They say you never forget your
firstlo\e. For Laretta Swearengin.
there's no chance she could ever
forget Eddie Marshall.
Right about now, most 16-
year-old girls are shopping for
their prom dress. Laretta is deal-
ing with the fact that her
boyfriend is behind bars, charged
with murdering his grandmother
and attempting to murder one of
her close friends. A dance is the
last thihg.on Laretta's mind.
For the last year and three
months, Laretta and Eddie have
been an item. Although the com-
munity now sees him as a sus-
pected killer, she recalls a differ-
ent person with a good heart.
SThat's not to say Laretta was
unaware of Eddie's troubles with
the law. Back last May, he was
charged with carrying a con-
cealed firearm and sentenced to
three years probation. He recent-
ly violated that probation and
Laretta agreed to help him out.
"He vas. sta\ini with me in Wewa
because he was running from the
law," she tells The County Record.
"I will admit I was hiding him out.
But we were staying with some
people and I couldn't put them in
that position."
Last Monday, Laretta decided
it was time: to head home. She
returned to her mother's house in
Blountstown and Eddie was
going to stay with his grandmoth-
er, Ruby Sansom, who resided at

the end of Watson Road in Altha.
However, later 'that day, Laretta'
says he convinced her to spend
the night \',ith him at his grand-
mother's house.
"For the first .time in a long
time, me and granny got along,"
says Laretta, recalling the last
day she saw Ruby Sansom alive.
"We went to town and me and her
had the longest talk." 'Laretta
says part of that conversation
revolved around a gun that Eddie
allegedly had previously taken
from his grandmother. "She told
me Eddie had a gun from her and
she wanted me to get it back from
him." When they arrived back at
Sansom's house, Laretta spoke
with Eddie and convinced him to
give the weapon back to his
grandmother.
Laretta says nothing signifi-
cant happened that evening in
the Sansom 'home and she fell

next thing she remembers is
being awakened by Eddie she
believes around 6 a.m. "He came
in there and said, 'Baby, I'm
sorry, I'm gonna have to tie up
your hands because I just did
something stupid."
Laretta says she initially
thought Eddie was playing a joke
on her. "Eddie is the type, he
plays around like that," she says.
Armed with duct tape, Eddie
allegedly taped Laretta's mouth
shut and tied her hands together
with the tape, allegedly with the
assistance of his 12-year-old first
cousin, Jonathan Sansom, who
also resided with his grandmoth-
er. 'The little boy held my hands
while Eddie tied my hands," says
Laretta, adding that Jonathan -
who she calls Little Jon was

Man charged with killing



grandma, shooting friend


by Kelli Peacock
A Blountstown man is behind
bars for allegedly murdering his
grandmother and attempting to
murder one of her friends last
Tuesday.
Edkah "Eddie" Leroy Marshall,
19, is being held without bond in
the Calho:un County Jail for the
shooting death of his grandmoth-
er, Ruby Sansom, 71, and the
attempted murder of her friend,
Gerald Wells, 61.
According to the Calhoun
County Sheriffs Office, they were
contacted around 5 p.m. by Kelli
Odom of .Blountstown who
advised her 16-year-old daugh-
ter, Laretta Swearingen, had
called home from a cellphone and
reported that Marshall, her
boyfriend, had shot his grand-
mother. Authorities learned that
Swearingen, along with
Marshall's first cousin, Jonathan
Sansom, 12, were with him in
Mississippi.
Deputy Jared Nichols went to
the Sansom residence at the end
of Watson Road, about three
miles south of CR 275 North in
Altha. Upon knocking on the door
of the inobile home, he heard
Wells inside the residence saying,
"I'm shot." Dep., Nichols went
inside to help Wells and discov-
ered the body of Ruby Sansom in
the living room.
Wells was reportedly conscious
and alert and was able.to identify


Marshall as the shooter. He pro-
vided details of what had tran-
spired nearly 12 hours earlier.;
Based on Wells' account and evi-
dence recovered at the scene,
authorities believe Marshall shot
Sansom once with a 12 gauge
shotgun, then went down a short
hallway to Wells' bedroom,, forced
open the door,. and fired a single
,shot at Wells, striking him at the
base of the neck.
Witnesses in the neighborhood
told authorities Marshall
remained at the residence until
around 7:30 a.m., approximatnaely
two hours after the crime was
committed. He allegedly left the
residence in Sansom's car with
the two teenagers inside.
The first contact was the cellu-
lar phone call from Laretta
Swearengin to her grandmother,
Jeanie Roberts. Marshall report-
edly stopped at his half-sister's
house in Brookhaven,
Mississippi, leaving 'Swearengin
.in the car. She located Ruby
Sansom's cellphone and made
the call back to Blountstown. Her
mother called authorities and an
Amber Alert was immediately
issued for Swearengin and
Jonathan Sansom.
According to Inv. Ken Futch,
after Marshall left his half-sister's
house, the sister called her moth-
er (who is not Marshall's mother).
She allegedly said Marshall told
her he had killed his grandmoth-
er. The girl's mother then called

Office and asked if they were

manager contacted authorities after real-
izing a total of $3300 in cash deposits

awoke him at 4 a.m., knocking on the door
and making accusations against him. He
said he left shortly after that, arriving in
Tallahassee by 5:30 a.m.
Around 8 a.m., he said he returned
home to find Tolley in the master bedroom
and alleged she told him he scared her
and she wanted him out of the house.
Rackley stated he walked into the kitchen
and then started back to the' bedroom
where he was met by Tolley in the hall. He
alleged she put' a gun.to his head and
pulled the trigger -r ree or four times.

a contact lens container was found con-
taining powder cocaine. Also discovered
was a three inch plastic drinking straw, as
well as a bottle of Cylert prescribed to
Tolley's son.
A Dickson .22 caliber handgun was
retrieved from the yard. It reportedly was

reaching speeds in the triple digits as he
approached the Liberty County line.

.where Mayo finally pulled over in a park-
ing lot near the intersection of SR 12.

from helicopter

in a marsh area while flying in the Sheriff's
helicopter Friday. Sgt. McCroan and Maj.

God, devoted loyalty, and the vast pride on
the part of many people, The County
Record has never missed an issue.

out on East Central Avenue. After the dri-
ver and passenger, appeared nervous and
Cpl. Langley smelled marijuana, he
received permission to search the vehicle.

juana belonged to him and the driver had
no knowledge of it. Ladd was subse-
quently charged with possession of less
than 20 grams of marijuana and drug
paraphernalia.

was open because they had been drink-
ing earlier the night before, however, Cpl.
Langley noted his eyes were bloodshot

and cooperative in support of our
efforts to make Blountstown a
better place to live. These efforts
were played out in our recent
Centennial celebration when
these two men gave untiringly to
the effort of cleaning up and
beautifying Blountstown for this
event."
Traylor urged the Council to
continue their support for beauti-
fication and to strengthen their
code enforcement activities by
enforcing the existing ordinance.
"Unoccupied buildings should
have periodic inspections, at least
annually, to determine if they are
a'safety hazard or habitable," she
suggested. "If not habitable, they
should not be allowed to remain.


Such buildings are not only
unsightly, but pose health prob-
lems as a breeding place for ver-
min that could spread disease."
Code enforcement duties were
recently assigned to Blountstown
Fire Chief Ben Hall who has been
busy inspecting problem proper-
ties. Hall has the task of respond-
ing to complaints about dilapi-
dated structures, weeds growing
out of control, junk cars piled up


on blocks, and other neighbor-
hood nuisances. After issuing
warnings, property.owners have a
chance to get the matter resolved.
If they fail to do so in a timely
manner, they can be fined up to
$250 a day.
If you have a code enforcement
complaint or would like to learn
how to get your property in com-
pliance, call Ben Hall at 674-
4988.

Williford marks 95th birthday


A tribute to Alice Williford


by Connie Williford
It has been said that it's not
how you play the game that
counts, it's whether or not you
keep your marbles.
Well, Alice Williford has kept
her marbles, still works a mean
crossword puzzle, and will tell
you that it does indeed make a
difference as to how you play the
game of life.
This gracious and truly amaz-
ing lady turned 95 years old on
Tuesday, March 1. Always with a
positive attitude and a zest for
life, whenever her peers and
friends see her now, it is not
-uncommon to hear, "You are truly
:remarkable," "You are my role
:model," "If I look like you do when
*'I am your age," and more.
Always an early riser and hard
Worker, Alice could do anything
i she pretty much set her mind to.
Versatile and curious, she could
fix a pipe in the house, catch,
I clean, and fry a fresh fish for the
evening's meal, deliver puppies,
teach a canary to talk. In the 70s,
she even directed a wedding at a
local church, and that bride still
thanks her today for thirty years
of a good marriage.
A fine wife, devoted mother,
good sister and friend, Alice is
also a great cook, and she has
been known for her tasty pies,
cakes, and yeast rolls. Those
close to her swear that she
secretly operates a bakery in her


kitchen, and that her oven has
more miles on it than a '69
Chevy.
When asked what she feels her
secret is for a long life, Alice has
said, "Being active, giving to the
community, helping others."
She is not without a few mis-
givings for times in life when she
might have traveled and, espe-
cially, gone on to pursue higher
education and gone into busi-
ness. But, as fate would have it,
family, home, and good
Samaritan callings always
seemed to take priority.
Alice came to Blountstown in
late 1970 with husband, James,
and son, James C. This locale
was Mr. Williford's hometown.
Shortly after arrival, he passed
away. The warmth and goodness
of the people here in Blountstown
was just the balm Alice needed
and she quickly found her niche
in the daily life happenings.
Always a giver and always one to
do more than expected, Alice vol-
unteered in many areas hospi-
tal, organizations, rummage
sales. Whenever a helper was
needed, she was there.
Alice remains active and inter-
ested in many areas even today.
For over 25 years, she has been
active in services for the elderly,
has been awarded honors for her
efforts to create and keep
resources for the older citizens.
She is an active officer and advo-
cate in the local AARP chapter,


prizes her groups at the Garden
and Women's Clubs, and, espe-


j >i'y


Alice Williford


cially, holds her Eastern Star
affiliation in high esteem. Friends
of a lifetime have been the result
of these many affiliations, along
with special participation in Area
Agency for the Aging.
Alice Williford is indeed one
special lady. Every day is a good
day to her, and she often thanks
God for the honor of living, a gift
in itself. She is held in high
esteem by a number of people.
Her son, James C., who resides
with her; daughter, Connie, 'who
visits often from California; sister,
Irma, also on the west coast; and
a multitude of special and sup-
portive "cousins" from her hus-
band's side of the family, residing
in Grand Ridge and Sneads.
Good-hearted, totally authen-
tic, and without pretense, Alice's
children honor her especially at
this time. She is loved. dearly,
cherished deeply for who she is,
what she does, and for the many
special examples she has offered
throughout a lifetime.
Happy birthday to a real
sweetheart!

however, the aircraft was hesitant
About lifting off. After finally get-


ting the plane off the ground,

of one of the wings, he said he
closed his eyes and prepared to
crash.
According to witnesses, Robert
Phillips and Robert Sims, the air-
craft appeared to flip over after
hitting the trees. The plane came
to final] rest in an upright position
facing back toward the runway
Miraculously, Williams climbed

The Tigers hosted Munroe last

Marathon. It consisted of 24,000
plus runners tracking through
26.2 miles of all 5 theme parks
with above average temperatures.
She stated that it was a great
experience and accomplishment. I
don't train year round and I'm not
a speedster like my husband but
I'm steady. The heat was tough
once the sun came up but the
cheering from each park was
uplifting and I accomplished my
goal and I'm very happy.


season," says Coach Jordan.
'That's part of the reason right
now we're 1-3 is trying to figure
out who's going to do that for us.
I tell our guys we want to improve
as the year goes on. Last year, we
played our best games at dis-
trict."
In J.V. action, the Tigers
defeated Cottondale to improve to


Liberty County Tuesday in a J.V.
only game (details unavailable at
press time).
Sneads comes to town
Thursday with J.V. at 3:30 p.m.,

in high school she replied laughing, "A
dork with big, frizzy hair."

Abbye Faurot releases "Chipola Roads"


Book signing Saturday, March 26,

,at the Panhandle Pioneer Settlement


by Kelli Peacock
When Abbye Faurot's eyes
started failing her she had to give
up reading, but not books.
Instead of relaxing with a novel,
she decided to create her own lit-
erary works.
SThis month, she is pleased to
announce the release of her book,
Chipola Roads.
"It probably took about five
months to write," she tells The
County Record. 'The time I would
have spent reading. I now spend
writing."
Although she has vision prob-
lems, she is able to magnify
words on her computer screen,
enabling her to craft stories that
have been churning in her head
for years. "Probably from the time
I was in high school, I thought
about [writing a book]," she says.
Back in those days, she was
Abbye Ayers and was dating her
future husband, Billy Faurot.
"Billy started telling me in high
school I needed to write a book,"
she recalls. "I loved to write
essays and even wrote some for a
lot of boys in class who didn't like
to write. I did a lot of Julian
Parrish's homework."
Growing up a little less than a
mile from the Chipola River,
Abbye has fond memories of days


she spent with her three sisters
and two brothers. Those experi-
ences helped mold the characters
. and events in Chipola Roads. "A
number of things in the book are
little incidents that really hap-
pened, but not to the people in
the book," she says. One example
is a story about one of her sib-
lings. "My brother, Bill, had some
pigs and he was always looking to
get rich. Our neighbors had some
gourds, so he traded a live pig for
some gourd seeds to get rich!"
Looking back, Abbye recalls a
simpler time. "Out in the country,
we played with a syrup can lid
and a bent coat hanger," she says
with a laugh. "We went out on the
river swamps and swung out on
vines. It's a wonder we didn't get
eaten by an alligator."
The main. character in the
book is Florida Cracker born
Rachel Wilkes who, according to
Faurot, "Had never seen a
coconut palm or pink flamingo,
but that did not mean she was
not a typical product of the for-
gotten Florida west of
Tallahassee, where tall virgin
pines still grew in the years
between the .Great Depression
and World War II.' Rachel knew
from childhood that she wanted
to teach, as her desire for knowl-


edge was only surpassed by her
religious faith and her love of
family. She did not know the odds
of her reaching that lofty goal.
She only knew she was going to
do it." Chipola Roads is the story
of Rachel's entering formal
schooling in her teens, and her
family's struggle to make it possi-
ble.
Who is Rachel's character
based upon? "She's part me and
part some other people that I
know," says Faurot.
Abbye and Billy raised five
children, Spencer, Arthur,
Barbara, Leslie,. and Alan, -and
now have 12 grandchildren and
one great-grandchild. She dedi-
cates her first book to her grand-
children "who thought I could do
anything I really wanted to do,"
she says.
In addition to Chipola Roads,
Abbye has authored a cookbook
and family history book. She is
currently working on the sequel
to Chipola Roads.


/ .*


Abbye Ayers Faurot of Blountstown has released her first work of fiction,
Chipola Roads. A book signing is'scheduled Saturday, March 26, from 2 to 4
p.m. at the Yon House in the Panhandle Pioneer Settlement.

placed on the road to stop the traffic. The
Board agreed by consensus for
Commissioner Hunt to take whatever
means necessary to stop the traffic until
the problem is corrected.
COMMISSIONER WISE
Commissioner Wise stated that Bobby
Clark, with Westside Volunteer Fire
Department asked if they could lease a
,portion of the Westside building to Phillip
Hill for a meeting room and to train 1st
responders. After discussion, the Board
directed Attorney Fuqua to review the lia-
bility and report back at the next meeting.

COMMISSIONER GRANT
Commissioner Grant stated that
Waste Management trucks are leaving
hydraulic oil leaks on the roads and asked
Clerk Attaway to write a letter to Waste
Management concerning this problem.
Commissioner Hunt stated he would like
for the letter to include a request that trash
cans be placed further from the roads
after dumping.
OUT-OF-THE-SUNSHINE MEETING
The Board recessed at 5:50 P.M. to
hold an "Out-of-the-Sunshine Meeting" at
6:00 P.M. in reference to the lawsuit
between Calhoun County Board of
County Commissioners and Hester
Leonard concerning Jehue Landing.
The Board reconvened at 6:45 P.M.
and discussed the proposals presented to
the Board in reference to Jehue Landing,
1. 5- year lease with a 5- year renewal
clause.
2. County will not improve property.
3. County will provide insurance.
4. County will not take property in the
future by eminent domain.
Commissioner Pickron recommended
taking the five- year lease and working
together with the Leonard's until a new
landing could be found for the citizens.
Commissioner Hunt stated that after
the five- year lease is up there was a pos-


sibility that the Leonard's would not renew
the lease.
Commissioner Pickron made a
motion, seconded by Commissioner
Wise, to accept the 5 -year lease with a
renewable option. Commissioners Hunt
and Hall voted no. Chairman Grant
abstained from voting as he works close-
ly with Neal Land and Timber Co. and Mr.
Leonard is on the Board of Directors.
Mr. Alvin Roberts and several mem-
bers of the audience expressed their opin-
ion on the closing of Jehue Landing stat-
ing that it should remain open because it
is a Public Boat Ramp. Mr. Billy Joe Tipton
worked as a County grader man for many
years, and he stated that he had graded
the road going to the boat landing.
COMMISSIONER WISE
Commissioner Wise asked the Board
to do a boundary by agreement on the
Lee Hill Road. After discussion, a motion
was made by Commissioner Wise to pre-
pare a boundary by agreement on the Lee
Hill Road. Motion dies from lack of a sec-
ond.
ATTORNEY FUQUA
Attorney Fuqua stated that he had
spoken with the power company, and they
had agreed to move the power pole on
Harrell Hill Road if the county would clear
the right of way. They asked that the
County obtain permission from the land
owner to clear the right of way. They also
ask that the land owners sign a hold
harmless agreement.
COMMISSIONER HUNT
Commissioner Hunt discussed with
the Board internet services. He men-
tioned that an individual can be pin point-
ed directly to their home.
There being no further business, the
Board did adjourn.

Laretta says Eddie had Little
Jon go out to the car in a way
that he didn't pass the body of his
grandmother. She alleges he
guided her toward the living
room. "I was begging him to take

see [his grandmother]," she
states, adding that when she saw
Ruby Sansom, shot and laying on
her living room floor. "I didn't
know what to do. My mouth was
taped shut and my hands...I
started crying. Who wouldn't do
that?"
Laretta says she never saw or
heard Mr. Wells, who she
describes as a very good friend to
Ruby Sansom.
SEddie allegedly led Laretta to
the car where Jonathan was wait-

Eddie reportedly told them they

his half-sister lived. About three
hours later, somewhere around
Pensacola, Laretta says Eddie
took the tape off her mouth and
hands. 'The first thing that came
out of my mouth when he
unrtaped my mouth was, 'Can I
have a cigarette?' and then I
turned around and asked him

Keep God

I n Your Heart
by Rev, R. W. Waterman


James 5:16
Rev R.W. Waterman
Sharon Bushy told this experience:
Due to a muscle :".';'rn, our daughter
had lost 60 percent of the vision in her left
eye. Immediate surgery-was necessary.
Biie'.'ri in anr.i'.nin, we asked the doc-
tor to wait. In Christian wisdom he relied,
"Schedule the surgery but have her
anointed." On surgery -i', he told us,
"'od did what I could not do, He restored
,her vision. But He left what I could do: the
'muscle is much worse." With confidence
v'e had the corrective surgery and praised
God for His complete healing.
How many times do we pray with defi-
nite instructions for God to follow: the way,
the time, the how. I have seen God do
instantaneous miraculous healing, but
also I have learned to recognize His heal-
jng wheh it isn't as dramatic.
Our Lord has healed a large six inch
tumor in my large intestine through a skill-
fdl surgeon back in the mid-eighties. He
healed my wife of cancer by another
skilled surgeon in the nineties. Also the
Lord healed me of arthritis instantaneous-
ly, a warm feeling started at the tip of my
fingers and'moved through my fingers,
hands, arms, and shoulders popping the
joints as it went. What a miracle.
SThe truth is our Savior works in many
marvelous ways. Believe for a miracle of
healing in your body, but don't tell the Lord
how He should do it, as if He didn't know
how. Just pray and obey Him. He will
always do what is best, but not always
What we want.


why he did it," Laretta recalls.
"He said there was a voice in his
head he said it was God telling
him to do it."
Along the way, Laretta says
she and Eddie talked and he told
her his plans. "He said he was
gonna put me on a bus the next
day and him and his little cousin
was going to some town in
Mexico," says Laretta.
As they traveled, Laretta says
Jonathan kept asking how his
grandmother had died. "I would
have to say he was a little scared
because, when he was falling
asleep, he'd pretty much beg
Eddie not to shoot him when he

Sell asleep."
S As for herself, Laretta says she
S was fearful at times. "Part of me
was, but the other part loved him
so much I felt I couldn't be."
About 350 miles from home,
Eddie stopped at his sister's
house in Brookhaven,
S Mississippi. Laretta says she
waited in the car and took the
opportunity to use Ruby
Sansom's cellphone., "I called my
nanny," she says, referring to her
, grandmother, Jeanie Roberts.
When Eddie returned to the
car, they headed for a Holiday


Dear Gadsden. Liberty & Calhoun
County Residents,
Two years ago I obtained my Florida
Dealer's License due to the frustration of
shopping for a used car. The following three
things made car shopping a big headache
for me:
*Haggling for the best price
*Having to come UP with $2000 to $3000
for a down payment, taxes, title and tag


Inn. She says he later told her
she could call her mother and let
her know she was okay. She then
told him about calling her grand-
mother earlier.
It was Laretta's calls back
home that alerted authorities to
the shooting that had taken place
earlier in the day. Deputy Jared
Nichols discovered the body of
Ruby Sansom around 5 p.m.,
along with an injured Gerald
Wells who was flown to Bay
County Medical Center.
Meanwhile, back in
Mississippi,. Eddie's half sister
reportedly shared news of his
visit with her mother who called
the Calhoun County Sheriffs
Office. His sister allegedly told
authorities he was heading to the
Brookhaven Holiday Inn.
Laretta says she and Eddie
were settling into their hotel room
when authorities came calling. "I
was just getting inside the show-
er I didn't have anything on-
and the next thing you know,
Eddie comes in the bathroom and
says, Thanks- for calling your
grandma, cause now the law's
here.' Eddie didn't have anyplace
to run. They threw him down on
the ground and made me lay on'
the ground."
Jonathan was located in
another hotel room.


Back at home in Blountstown,
Laretta decided to pay a visit to
Gerald Wells who remains hospi-
talized. During their visit, Wells
reportedly told Laretta he sur-
vived by playing dead.
