Man burned in apartment blaze
BY KELLI PEACOCK
A Blountstown man remains
in the bum unit at Shands
Hospital in Gainesville after
being injured in an apartment
fire early Sunday.
Darcy Bess was alone in his
bedroom in unit two of
Benchmark Apartments on
Fannin Avenue when the fire
broke out around 6 a.m.
"We got the call at 6:09 and
were on the scene at 6:14,"
Blountstown Fire Chief Ben
Hall reports. "Our full roster
showed up all 16 firefighters."
Chief Hall says he saw the
smoke as he rounded the cor-
ner at Bank of America and
immediately called for backup
from the Nettle Ridge and West
Side volunteer fire depart-
A crew from Emergystat
Ambulance Service was on the
scene when Chief Hall arrived
and were treating Bess on the
ground outside the apartment.
Sources say Bess had jumped
from his second story bedroom
to the pavement below as
flames soared above him. "The
way it appeared the fire was, he
couldn't get out the bedroom
door," says Chief Hall. "The
fire started close to the door-
way on the second floor in his
bedroom where he was sleep-
Fortunately, one unit next to
Bess' apartment was vacant
and no one was home in the
apartment' next to his. The
fourth'apartment in the build-
ing was evacuated. "We were
able to' contain the fire to the
second floor of that one apart-
ment." Chief Hall advises.
Bess was taken to Calhoun-
Liberty Hospital and immedi-
ately flown by Air Medic to
Shands. "I know he was, badly
burned on his head and torso,"
says Chief Hall.
The County Record spoke
with Darey's brother, Patrick
Bess, Monday afternoon, who
advised, "He's stable, but his
burns are critical."
Fortunately, Bess' wife and
young daughter were staying
overnight with her mother and
were not home at the time of
the blaze. ;
- The cause of the fire has not
yet been determined and was
being investigated by Jason
Roberts of the Fire Marshal's
Office at press time.

Now you don't have to make d
trip into town or stand in line if
you're in need of a public record:
You can simply access it from

Attawav explains. "If you're

puter and you don't need a certi-
fied copy. it's free."
Making the documents avail-
able online has not been an easy
process. "It was an expensive
and time consuming project, but
we do have it done now," says
Attaway. "I have imaged all the.

says. "Whenever we are in the

"For instance, if you had a wit-

Sometimes we can have trouble
with Psalm 54:7. I know I can't in
all honesty say God has delivered
me from all my trouble.
Within the last few years I
watched my mother slowly leave us
with Alzhelmer's Disease. Her
body stayed but she was gone
about a year before she died. Now
S I am watching a friend who is slow-
ly traveling down the same road. he
is little by little leaving us. I have
been through several heart
%wrenching situations that cuan
tempt you to wonder, why Lord. I
have also watched more than one
person that would almost make
you loose faith in human beings.
All these occurrences as I look to
the Psalmist who says the Lord has
delivered him out of all his trou-
bles and caused him ro triumph
over his enemies.
It just doesn't add up until we
look at the Cross. That is our
problem. The old rugged cross is
an emiblem of defeat, failure, and
tragedy. But we must remember.
God had something else In mind.
Now we, too, can take the suffering
and tragedies of this world and give
them to a God who has something
else in mind.
i-iow about yo-u? Can you give
your tragedy to Gmo and trustt Him
to turn l ati ti ruipAh Conme on.

Baker ends Lady Tigers' season
BY KELLI PEACOCK
It was an incredible ride that
ended way too soon for the
Blountstown Lady Tigers.
After claiming the district title,
then winning the regional quar-
terfinals, BHS advanced to the
regional semifinals Saturday at
Baker. Unfortunately, it would be
the last trip for the 2005 team as
they were defeated, 18-25, 9-25,
"We knew this game would be
won mentally." Coach Susan
Rash tells The County Record.
"We made some crucial errors to
give them big points. Baker is a.
tough team and does not make
many mistakes. To beat them we
needed to play error free volley-
ball. We didn't do that Saturday."
The Lady Tigers were led by
Holly Jeppson with eight kills,
two blocks, seven digs. and an
ace; Amanda Whitfield with three
kills, a block, and three digs; and
Nichole Tipton with five kills, two
blocks, 10 digs, and three aces.
"We still had a great season,
finishing 15-5 and winning the
district championship, then
making it to the regional semifi-
nals," Coach Rash remarks. "I'm
very proud of our team. We are
still young and I expect big
things out of these Lady Tigers
again next year."

: The team is comprised of only
3 Seniors and 9 Juniors who
each bring a lot of talent and skill
to the court. The theme for the
Lady Bulldogs this year has been
"Dig Deep". in other words don't
give up, no matter what the score
is just dig a little deeper for \icto-
ry. That motto has inspired
them in many of their games and
is evident with their season
record. They were.undefeated in
Sthe first 8' games' at theyplaved

ber 1 in the district all season.
SSome of the leading players in

and Kaycee Ammons (Jr.). The
team is coached by Casi Peddle

for the Lady Bulldogs. These
ladies have exemplified hard
work, determination, and a great
attitude both on and off the
The Lady Bulldogs have an
amazing fan club. The fans have
shown their support for the team
whether they are at home or on
the road. The Lady Bulldogs
depend on the fans to help sup-
port them and encourage them in
the games. The Bulldog spirit
has helped these girls come out
on top with a victory. especially
in their rival games against
Blountstown and Altha.
The road to victory began with
the district championship game
against West Gadsden which the
Bulldogs won in 3 games. Next
LCHS hosted Sneads in the
regional quarterfinals in which
the Lady Bulldogs took the -icto-
ry once again.
This past Saturday the Lady
Bulldogs, traveled tq Cottondale
,to face the' Hornets.. Although
they were off to a rocky start los-
ing the first game. the Lady
Bulldogs pulled another victory

November 3, at 7:00 p.m. (EST)

Baker High. The State
Championship game will be held
on Saturday, November 12 (loca-
tion and time TBA).
The Lady Bulldogs encourage
all the fans to come and support
them at home on Thursday
night. This is the first time our
volleyball team has made it to
this level in the playoffs. We are
proud of Coach Peddle and the
Lady Bulldog team in the success
they have had in this 2005 vol-

pions in our eyes!
We wish the Lady Bulldogs the
best as they continue on the road

touchdowns and a 13-0 lead at
intermission. One of the penal-
ties cost the Tigers a touchdown
when Guilford passed to Overholt
but a lineman was called for
being downfield. An apparent
Tiger fumble just before halftime
was ruled as after the whistle or
the Holmes County lead could
have been greater.
"We looked like zombies out
there in the first half." coach
Bobby Johns said Monday. "I'm
really tired of ut-ng to make
excuses for our lack of emotion
and intensity in games. We're
making far too many mental mis-
takes and it will come back to
haunt us in the playoffs," Johns
Johns was quick to point out
his disappointment with the
Tiger defense in letting Holmes
County get the two first half
touchdowns. "We had not given
up two touchdowns to a team
since the Port St. Joe game. We
got caught out of position and
they took advantage of it," Johns
On the turnovers. Johns
pointed out that last year thru
eight games the Tigers had fum-
bled only four times. This year
thru nine games the Tigers have
fumbled 20 times and lost 14.
After stopping Holmes County
on their first possession of the
third quarter, the Tigers marched
: r ace
downfield with an impressive
drive but lost their second fum-
ble around the Bonifay 10.
Everything that could go wrong
was going wrong.
Then the light came on or the
bell rung, or something clicked.
The Tigers realized if they didn't
get their act together, they'd be in
Vernon Monday night in a three
way playoff for the district cham-
pionship. From that point on. it
was over for Holmes County.
After stopping the Blue Devils
after the Tiger fumble, it took
three plays and 59 seconds for
the Tigers to score. Michael
Guilford connected with
Jonathan Lockhart for 37 yards
and a touchdown. Jacob
Williams missed the PAT.
Forty seconds later Lockhart
stepped in front of a Blue Devil
receiver and picked off a pass
and raced 45 yards for his sec-
ond score. Williams' kick tied the
score at 13-13 with 4:43 left in
the third quarter.
Late in the third quarter. the
Tigers took over at their own 10
and marched 90 yards in four
plays with Chance Attaway ram-
bling the final 15 yards on the
first play of the fourth quarter. A
70 yard pass from Guilford to
Lockhart was the big play in the
drive. Williams' kick failed, but
the Tigers took their first lead.
'Late in the fourth quarter,
Arsenio Ivory scored from 6 yards
out to put the Tigers on top 26-
13. The game ended with
Guilford taking a knee at the
Holmes County goal line rather
than putting up more points.
Blountstown' rushed for 221
yards on 47 attempts or a 4.7
yard per carry average. Attaway
led the Tigers with 76 yards on
15 attempts followed by Ivory
with 49 yards on 9 carries. T.C.
Copeland had 43 tough yards on
8 rushes followed by Guilford
with 31 yards on 12 carries.
Ryan Baker had 24 yards on 2
The Tigers fumbled the ball
three times and lost two. They
had 7 penalues for 54 yards.
Guilford had one of his best
passing nights completing 6 of 7
for 162 yards and one touch-
down. Lockhart had two recep-
tions for 107 yards and a touch-
down. Attaway had two recep-
tions, one for a key first down
late in the game. for 23 yards.
Gam' Reed had one catch for 18
yards and Titus Overholt had
one grab for 14 yards.
Holmes County cashed in on
Tiger turnovers and field position
in the first half. The Tiger
defense played much tougher in
the second half and held the Blue
De\ils to 113 yards rushing and
100 yards passing for the night.
Lockhart and Overholt each
had an interception for the Tiger
Ryan Baker led all defenders
with 7 solos and 7 assists.
Lockhart and Corey Silcox were
each in on 13 tackles. Chaz
Johns had a big night for the
Tiger defense in the middle of the
line in on 11 tackles. Attaway
followed with 10. Overholt with 9
and Janie Widlis 7 for the Tigers.
Josh Savell. Josh Lee. Ivory, Greg
Meeks, Clarke Purvis. Chase
Cox. Copeland. Adam Edwards.
Corey Cox. Guilford and Josh
Segers all had stops on defense.
Jordan and his Gators fin-
ished their district as the run-
nerup losing only to Port St. Joe.
The Gators defeated Liberty
County last week. 38-8. The
Gators also defeated South
Walton who will be the Tigers'
first round opponent in the play-
offs and they also beat Bratt
Northview who ill be Vernon's
first playoff opponent. The
Gators will face undefeated
Lafayette Mayo in their first
round playoff game.
"This will be a tough game and
our guys better be ready to play.
Greg has done a tremendous job
in Wewa and they'd love to beat
us." Johns added. "I think Greg
would agree that we both want to
win. but we sure hope we can get
through this game without any
"We've got some good upper-
classmen who have played well
for us and our kids have worked
hard in the weight room. I've told
our kids tlI-rt Bloun'l'stov.n vW.ll b'

a good test for us and to look at
it as our first playoff game. We
won't play anybody in the play-
offs any better than
Blountstown." Jordan said.
"For me, this game will be
kinda like getting in a fight with
your big brother. You know you
might get your butt kicked, but
you've still got to fight."

Will the real Blountstown Tigers
please show up'!'l"!'
I know it is my responsibility as the
head coach to hnd a way to get our kids
ready to play every football game, but at
some point it becomes the player's
responsibility to prepare themselves
emotionally for the challenges ahead I
can only preach so much that we need to
be ready to play good football teams, but
at some point it is their responsibility to be
Thank goodness we had a few of our
leaders step up at halhime and motivate
our team to respond in the second half. I
worry that instead of our team feeling like
the dominant team that we are, we may
have lingering effects of the games we
did not play well and we need to have our
confidence at a high point heading into
I am not going to talk much about the
first half of the game last week very much
except to say that we were not focused
and we did not get the lob done when we
needed to As for the second half, we
had some seniors who really stepped up
and took the team on their shoulders to
get the win and a couple of underclass-
men that really came through for us
Corey Silcox stepped up on defense
and really fired our team up He did an
outstanding job picking up his intensity as
well as the rest of our defense. Jarrod
Phillips did a great ]ob on the offensive
line in the second half expecting them to
do a better job than they did in the first
half. Those two seniors, along with the
outstanding play of John Lockhart. Ryan

our team the life it needed to get a win
John Lockhart had three unbelievable
plays, two on offense and one on
defense, that opened the game in our
favor If it were not for those two plays, I
don't know what would have happened
We also got some good plays from
Michael Guilford throwing the football and
Titus Overholt and Josh Savell on
defense that helped us seal the game.
Chance Artaway made some very good
offensive plays in the second hall after
sustaining a bad injury to his chest in the
second quarter It was a good comeback
and our kids showed great character by
stepping up to the challenge.
The disappointing part is that there
should never have been a need to come
back from 13 points down I hope that we
will change our outlook on things from
here on and once we get into the playoffs
we will play up to our potential. We have
not given up more than one offensive
touchdown but once since the St Joe
game and that was Friday night against
Hopefully, our defense will step back
up this week against a very good Wewa

us but ourselves We have averaged
over 400 yards per game on offense in

Blountstown FFA sweeps
District Forestry Contest
On October 13 the
Blountstown High School FFA
Chapter traveled to the Marianna
Caverns State Park for the
District 2 Forestry Contest.
There they competed in several
forestry related competitions.
At the end of the day it was
apparent that Blountstown's
hard work and'practice had paid
off and they took 17 of 24 awards
in the individual and team cate-
Local winners were as follows:
Herndon-2nd; Will Leonard-3rd

the Mighty Wewa Gators. Greg
has done an unbelievable job
with this team and he will have
them ready to play this week, -If
we go out and undrrestmnate
them" like we have several times,
this season, our undefeated sea-
son \ill go down the drain. I
wish Coach Jordan the best and
hope his team doesn't have any
injuries that will hurt him for his
playoff run, but I hope that we
can "Finish Our Ride" and bring
home the second straight 10 0
season. The game time at Wewa
this week is at 7:00, not 7:30. I
hope all of our fans will follow us
down there and I hope we come
out and play like everyone
expects us to.
See, you at the game. GO

For us, that was about as
elaborate as it ever got. Oh, we
dared to dream about cool cos-
tumes. I remember around
fourth or fifth grade, I got invited
to a costume:party and was
determined to go as the bride of
Frankenstein. I fantasized for
weeks about my black satin cape
with red lining, a long black wig,
and l1lood streaks on my painted
,Let's just say it didn't work out
quite that way.
I ended up,wearing a white
baby blanket I'd had for years as
my cape, secured around my
neck with a safety pin and
smeared with red lipstick to look
like blood. Of course. it didn't
look like blood: it looked like red,
lipstick smeared on a white baby
So all you youngsters out
there with your perfectly coordi-
nated costumes, don't ever let me
hear you complaining about not
getting to dress as the character
you wanted to be. By golly, if
your costume doesn't double as
the blanket you lay under when
you watch TV, you've got nothing
to whine about.
