Woman


survives


knife


attack


in home

BY ROBERT TURNER
A Bristol woman's w.6ill
to live and strength to fight
probably saved her life
Friday when she was
attacked by a knife wielding
man inside her, home.
Misty Holcomb, 33,
received stitches above her
right eye and had 5-1/2"
cuts on her right forearm
and right leg. She also had
3" cuts on her left forearm
and left leg, all requiring
numerous stitches.
According to Major
Steve Swier with the
Liberty County Sheriff's
Department, every avenue
is being investigated.
"We're running down every
lead but have no suspects
at this time. Anyone with,
information that might
assist in the case can call us
at 643-2235 or Crime
Stoppers at 574-TIPS."
Swier added.
The attack happened at
the Holcomb home on
Highway 12 South around
11:00 a.m. Friday. After
receiving the 911 call, offi-
cers from several agencies
were on the scene with
tracking dQgs searching for
the assailant.
Mrs. Holcomb told The
County Record Monday
'that she had taken her chil-
dren to school and had vis-
ited a friend before return-
ing to her home around
10:20 Friday morning.
"I unlocked the front
door, went in and started a
normal routine of cleaning
the kitchen and.putting on
a load of clothes in the laun-
dry room downstairs. My
dog was upstairs and he
was continuously barking. I
went into the office to write
some checks for my lius-
band's business and finally
got up to go up stairs to
hush the dog up. I started
making up our bed and had
my back to the bathroom
when the man came up
behind me," Holcomb stat-
ed.
"He put his left forearm'

Farmers advised ACRE program Gr


enrollment will open on Apr. 27 .


Debby Folsom,
Executive Director of
USDA's Farm Service'
Agency in Florida
announced today that pro-
ducers can elect and enroll
in the Average Crop
Revenue Election (ACRE)
program beginning April
27, 2009. ACRE is a provi-
sion of the 2008 Farm Bill.
S"The Average Crop
Revenue Election program
is an innovative alternative
to the traditional farm safe-
ty," Folsom said. "This new
option presents an opportu-
nity for producers to review
both programs and decide
which one will work best for
their operation."
Producers have until
Aug.14, 2009, to make
their decision for the 2009
crop. USDA will not accept
any late-filed applications.
Producers who elect the
ACRE program for a farm
agree to: ,
V forgo counter-cyclical
payments;
v' accept a 2.0-percent
' reduction of the direct pay-
ments; and
SV accept a 30-percent
reduction in loan rates for
all commodities produced
on the, farm.
Commodities eligible for


ACRE payments are
wheat, corn, grain
sorghum, barley, oats,
upland cotton, long grain
rice, medium and short,
grain rice, peanuts, soy-.
beans, sunflower seed,
canola, flaxseed, safflower,
mustard seed, rapeseed,
sesame seed, crambe, dry
peas, lentils, small chick-
peas and large chickpeas.
The ACRE program
'was created in the 2008
Farm Bill to give producers
an option in lieu of tradi-
tional counter-cyclical pay-
ments. Producers may elect
and enroll in ACRE for the
2009 crop year even if they
have already accepted
advance direct payments
under the Direct and
Counter-cyclical Program.
To elect ACRE for A
farm, producers must com-
plete Form CCC-509
ACRE, which irrevocably
elects ACRE for the farm.
through crop year 2012.
Form CCC-509, the con- .
tract to participate in
ACRE, must then be com-
pleted each year the pro-
ducer intends to participate
and receive benefits.
For more information
about the ACRE program

Wall That Heals memorial will


pass by BHS Tuesday morning -

NEVER TOO LATE.... f BHS students will be .


On Tuesday, April 28,
Calhoun County has the
unique opportunity to say
THANK YOU. to a very
special group of Americans.
Vietnam veterans, in'
many instances, came
home after serving our
nation to a less than appre-
ciative welcome. Whereas
veterans from. previous
wars usually came home to
grateful communities,'
many of the Vietnam vets
were treated with disdain
or disregard. I
In 1979, The Vietnam
Wall was built in
Washington, D.C. as a
memorial to, the 58,000+
men and women who lost
their lives in that far-away
country Soldiers- served;
following orders from their
commanders and leaders
here at home. The "Wall"
gives many- people the
opportunity to make a sort
of spiritual connection to
'those who did not return
from that war.
In 1996, the Vietnam
Veterans Memorial Fund
unveiled a half-scale replica
of the' Washington memori-


al to travel to communities
across America.
The traveling memori-
al's purpose is "to allow the
souls enshrined on the.
Memorial' to exist, once
more, among family and
friends in the peace and
comfort' of familiar sur-
roundings." The traveling
wall,, known as The Wall
That Heals "...'allows the
many thousands of veter-
ans who have been unable
to cope with the prospect of
"facing The Wall" to find
the strength and courage to


do so Within their own com-
munities, thus allowing the
healing process to begin." ,
At approximately 10:25
on the morning of the 28th,
a procession of motorcycles
"guarding" the traveling
wall will make its way by
Blountstown High School
to be set-up' and displayed
for several days ;in
Apalachicola. Although the
wall will be inside a 73'
long trailer, it is still an
opportunity for our com-
munity to come and sup-
port this memorial project.


lining the streets wearing
RED, WHITE and BLUE
and waving flags and signs
to tell the veterans in this
entourage how grateful we
are to them.
Veterans of all eras,
along with their families,
are invited to find a spot to
sit and view the procession
in front of BHS. We would
like to be sure we have
enough seats, so please call
674-5724 and leave a mes-
sage if you would like to
join us that morning. You
can also send an e-mail to
sleonardmccrone@gmail.co
m,. if you prefer.
Due to time constraints,
the procession will not be
stopping here in
* Blountstown, but will' sim-
ply travel slowly through
our town.
Please join us at BHS,
or somewhere along the
route, to show our appreci-
ation to a group of veterans
who, in some cases; have
been waiting a long, long
time to be told "THANK
YOU.",.
Congratulautons!

ation of four other such flat-
head tournaments in the
Florida panhandle. 'Over
the past 14 years, approxi-
mately'. 3,000 fishermen
. have' participated in. the


"Big River. Roundup" and

ly and other catfish species

tournament is unlike any
other with fierce competi-
tion between locals for

Tough laws, higher prices


mean fewer kids smoking


Tate Gunnerson,
American adolescents
who live in states that com-
ply with tobacco sales laws
are less likely to pick up a
srotikifl.g hMbitithan are
those who live -wbgre the
laws are not C g'rously
enforced, a new study has
found.
And raising the price of
a pack of cigarettes might_
have an, equal, if not ,

also showed., .
"Efforts to prevent the
sale of tobacco to children.
pay off,'* said study author
Dr. Joseph R. DiFranza, a
professor of family, medi-
cine and community health
'at the University of
'Massachusetts Medical
School. "It's very effective
'at reducing the number of
,kids who smoke."

Since 1992, states have
:been required to prohibit


the sale and distribution of
tobacco to' minors. But in
1996, the U.S. Substance
Abuse and Mental Health
Services Administration
stlfed'a regulation th@t, in
. .Eqencp,n.put some. teeth
into the legislation that
requires states to pass and
enforce so-called no-sale
laws.
Though there has been
some debate about .the
effectiveness of the congres-
sional mandate, a growing
body of evidence' demon-
.strates that enforcing exist-
ing laws reduces the num-
ber of adolescent smokers.

DiFranza and .his col-
leagues analyzed.data from
a .2003 survey of 16,244>
adolescents, nearly all 15 to
17 years old, to obtain
information on smoking
habits. In addition, they
looked at state-collected
data on merchants' compli-


ance with anti-tobacco
laws. Then they correlated
the data, taking into
,account such factors as cig-
are tte ';prices, restaurant
smokingg, policies, anti-
smoking campaigns and
demographic information
that included age, gender,
race, ethnicity and parents'
education level.
The researchers found,
that, as merchants more.
diligently enforced the ban
on-tobacco sales to. minors
and as the price of. ciga-
rettes rose, the likelihood of
teens smoking dropped.
Improved compliance
with the laws from 1997 to
2003 was credited with
About a 21 percent 'decline
in the likelihood of a teen
smoking. Price increases for
a pack of cigarettes during
that time reduced the odds
.by about 47 percent, the
study found.


Teenagers throughout
Florida are gearing up for
prom and graduation, and
the Department of
Business and Professional
Regulation's Division of
Alcoholic Beverages and
Tobacco has developed a
"Survival Guide for Prom
and Graduation" aimed at
preventing underage drink-
ing and keeping Florida's
underage youth safe.

The Web-based tool
includes a prom/graduation
pledge not to drink under-
age, a way for teens to
share how they say-"no,"
helpful tips for a safe night
out, a "mocktail" recipe,
and a bookmark and share
box for teens to share or e-
mail the Web page through
social networking sites,
such as Facebook, Twitter,
StumbleUpon and more.,
"We know that Florida's
teens may be faced with the.
decision of whether to drink
alcohol underage during
prom and graduation, and
we hope this tool will
encourage them to say 'no'
and provide the resources'
they need to stay safe,"
stated Secretary Charles
W Drago.
The pledge includes a
text box, where underage
youth can share how they
say "no" to drinking alco-
hol. Answers will be .fea-
tured on the maih Web
page as a way to provide
teens a forum to communi-
cate directly with one
another.
ABT executes a three-
tiered strategy .to combat
underage drinking, which
includes education, preven-
tion and enforcement. The
mission of ABT is to keep
alcohol and tobacco out of
the hands of underage per-
sons, to ensure that
licensed establishments are

in compliance with the laws
and rules regulating the

The Department of

late fairly. The
Department licenses nearly
, one million businesses and

The County Record, APRIL 22, 2009, Page 11


County crime statistics continued


with a total of 153 index
offenses.
This represents a
change of 14.4% from 2007
to 2008. This is a direct
result of the increase in
thefts that we experienced
in 2008, primarily in scrap
metal. The price of scrap
metal was unusually high in
the first part of 2008, and
the price of gas was at a his-
torical high. this caused a
higher than usual amount
of thefts during that time.
In 2007 we had 72 thefts,
in 2008 that number
increased to'96, an increase
of 24 offenses. Coupled
with.that the report reflects
a decrease in population-
from 14,477 in 2007 down
to 14,310 in 2008. With
the increase in thefts and
the decrease in population
the per capital rate was
bound to increase as it did.


The clearance rate, or
rate at which crimes are
solved, was high. at 43.4%.
The statewide average is
24%. We experienced a
decrease in crimes other'
than thefts in most cate-
gories; we did not have any
murders, we had an
increased in robberies from
2 to 3, an increase in aggra-
vated assaults -from 21 to
25, a decrease in burglaries
from. 45 to 44 and a
decrease in motor vehicle
thefts from 10 to 3.
Although we experi-
enced a slight increase .'in
numbers this year (2008) it
should be taken into con-
sideration that when deal-
ing with small number,
large, 'percentage changes
occur. The changes from
2007 to 2008 came as a
result of 20 additional
offerises, primarily thefts.


the driving forces for those of the economic conditions
thefts are a direct reflection during 2008.

To: All Interested Agencies, Groups, and
Individuals

This is "to give notice that the City of
Blountstown has submitted an application
for, a Community Development Block
:Grant (CDBG funds) to the Florida
Department of Community Affairs. The
funding Is provided by the U.S.
Department of Housing and Urban
Development (HUD) and will be used to
rehabilitate three (3) existing lift stations,
replace two' watermalns and resurface
Mayo Street and Ward Street.

This notice is required by Section 2(a)(4)
of Executive Order 11988 for Floodplain
Management, and by Section 2(b) of
Executive Order 11990 for the Protection
of Wetlands, and is implemented by HUD
Regulations found at 24 CFR 55.20(b) for
the HUD action that is within and/or affects
a floodplain' or wetland.

Construction will be undertaken in the 100
year floodplain. The City of Blountstown.is
interested in alternatives and public per-
ceptions of possible adverse impacts that
could result from the project as well as*
potential mitigation measures. The lift sta-
tion rehabilitation located on Thomas Ave
and the Ward St resurfacing and water-
main replacement are located within the
floodplain area. Lift Station #2, located on
Thomas Ave., Is in poor structural condi-
tion and does not meet FDEP require-'
ments. The City intends to replace the
existing lift station with a new station of
equal size. Ward St. is in very poor condi-
tion and the existing inch watermain
does not loop back into the system nor
does it provide fire protection to the resi-
dents of Ward St. The road surface suffers
from longitudinal cracks and severe pot-
holes. In order to correct these issues, the
City wishes to replace the smaller water-
main with a 6 Inch main that will loop back
into the existing system on River Street.
The City also intends to resurface Ward St.

Written comments must be received by the
f City of Blountstown at 20591 Central
Avenue West, Blountstown, FL 32424 on
or before May 8, 2009.

Accident claims life in Liberty


William D. Talbott, age
66, was killed Friday after-
noon when the Harley
Davidson motorcycle he
was driving collided with a
2001 Chevy van driven by
Kevin M. Brown, 24, of
Hosford, FL.
According to the FHP
report Brown's vehicle was
traveling east on CR 2224
(Blue Creek Highway) in
the eastbound lane. Talbott
was traveling west in the
westbound lane approach-
ing SR65. As Brown
entered a curve, the driver
was distracted because his
clipboard fell on the floor.
The left front of Brown's
vehicle collided, with the
front of the motorcycle in
the westbound lane. After
the initial collision, Brown's
van continued traveling in a


northeasterly direction and
entered a water filled ditch
on the north side of the
roadway. Talbott's motor-
cycle overturned onto it's
right side and came to final
rest in a wat6r filled ditch.
Talbott was ejected and
came to rest approximately
3 feet north of the motorcy-
cle.
Charges are pending in
the accident.

financial investments toward that end ..

GEMINI May 22/Jun 21
Single Gemini will find a new mate this week. Gemini in a relationship

ment with your doctor for a physical and make some positive changes

VIRGO Aug 24/Sept 22,
Virgo, there have been a lot of changes in your life. But you adapt very
well and can roll with the punches. Others around you, however, are
-more easily shaken.

LIBRA Sept 23/Oct 23

take sides. There's nothing you can do than to bow out gracefully'from
this other "competition" of sorts.

-MAGGIE PLAYER


LEONARD & FAMILY

Submitted by Leon Lynnwood Bailey, Jr.


For years my chil-
dren, cousins, and
friends have been after
'me to write down some
of our Grand t Momma
Lponard's's ole recipes
and being the procrasti-
nator I dm, I kept put-
ting it off. .Although I
wanted to do this in
remembrance of ,her.
because I was the apple
of her eye. I loved her;
food so much and I
remembered some of
these .recipes subcon-
sciously.
In ,November of
.2008, I was very sick'
and when I recovered, I.
said to myself. if this is
going to get done, I had
better get started. .
Soon after, 1900, pur
Grand rather.. Samuel
Anders.Leonard, son of
Daniel and. CarolineI
Anders Leonard, came
to the Florida
Panhandle from North
Carolina and started a
turpentine business at:
Telogia, located 'in
Liberty County. which
was west of
Tallahassee. After the
start up, the business
prospered. Sam had
been looking for a
bookkeeper and com-
missary manager and
was told that Thomas
Leighton Player was,a
good honest person and
Family man from South
Carolina. At that time,
he was working for a
large turpentine com-
pany near Waycross.
Georgia located on the
edge of the Okefenokee
Swamp. Sam got in
touch with Thomas and
hired him. He and his
large family then
moved down to Telogia.
G r a n d fat he'r
Thomas Leighton
Player married Martha
Jane Fleming and they
had a son, Eustace arid
four daughters: Evelyn,
Eula, Kizzie and our'
Grandmother,
Margaret Eliza.
Martha Jane died June
16. 1896 and was
buried in New Zion,
South Carolina.
Later. Thomas mar-
ried Miss Maria Powell
and they had twin boys
%'ho died at birth andi
then a son. Eugene,
and four daughters:
Louise, Helen, Virginia
and Hazel. Well, old
Sam looked over this.
flock of girls and fell in
love "with the pick of
the litter, Margaret
Eliza. better known as
Maggie. They were
married November 18,
1902 at Telogia and
started their family.
Samuel Wade was
born in August of the
next year and they had
another son. Samuel
Anders (S.A.) Leonard,
Jr. Soon after 1905, the
Leonard Family moved
to Stafford Creek in
Calhoun County just
north of Blountstown,
which was the county
seat. Margaret Player


Leonard : was born,
then Clarence and a lit-
tle later Wilbur, who
died at 'a very young
age. I have read letters
written to 'Granddaddy
and Grand Momma
from their relatives in
North and South'
Carolina after Wilbur's
'death that were so con-
soling and beautifully
written at. a time' :so
hard to bear.
Later, another
daughter, Mary
Caroline, was born at
Stafford Creek, just
before the family
moved to a beautiful
new home in.
Blountstown in 1919
where Thomas anrid
Jane Elizabeth, my
Mother, were born and
raised. Our
Grandfather, Samuel
died in 1938 at this
home which 'had been
Rebuilt after the first,
one was destroyed by
fire in 1932.
My Grand Momma,
Maggie, continued to*
maintain a large home,.
" manage twenty rental,
houses and take care of
her beloved chickens
and gardens. She fixed
a' full breakfast. each
morning consisting of-
sour' dough biscuits,
homemade link
, sausage,, yard eggs and
fig preserves; each fig
had been hand peeled.
After breakfast sheet
would, start dinner
'which was the main
meal of the day. She
would' have workmen,
invited guests and
"always a few uninvited
* guests drop by at noon.
"Miss, Maggie" 'w6uld
place: another plate on
the table if there was
room or put them on
the back porch...
My Mother, Janie
married Leon
Lynnwood Bailey, Sr.
in September 1942. He
was in the United
.States Coast Guard
during World War II.
and left to go to War in
Europe not long after
they married. He was
in the invasion of North
Africa, Sicily and
Normandy. Mamma
land I lived with Grand
Momma during this
time., Grand Momma
.aid I formed a wonder-
ful bond between each
other that has lasted
our life time.
Her holiday dinners
were great and most all
the food was raised or
was homegrown.
Baked hen and dress-
ing, smoked ham,
greens, peas, butter-
, beans with. boiled okra,
rice, macaroni and
cheese, Waldorf salad,,
pickles,' fresh sliced
vegetables if in season,
cornbread, biscuits and
rolls were on the
menu.. Miss Maggie's
deserts were all blue
ribbon. The one I
remember the most
was fruit cake soaked in


Leon Bailey with his Grand Momma Maggie.


homemade scupper-
nong wine, topped off
with silly bub; which'
was whipped cream
with a shot of Bourbon
Whiskey.
Some of my favorite
'days were butcher
days. In the ,spring,
"Miss Maggie" would
*dress 120 to 150 spring
chickens six to eight
weeks old. That day,
she would cook' a pileau
with livers,. gizzards,
necks and rice in a
wash pot on an open
fire at the wash pldce
where the butchering
-took place. At the end
of the day, all the ladies
who had helped would
divide up the chicken
feet and some better
cuts and take them
home and fix them for
their families. ,
In the fall, .on a
frosty.morning at a pre-
arranged time, a group
would meet at the wash
place \and they would
have a hog butchering.,
The #1 hogs were.cut
into whole hams,
chops, ribs, bacon, then
seasoned' by' being
smoked, salted down or
placed in lard and used
throughout the year.
The skin and fat would
be rendered down to
lard and cracklings. A
heavy-ruff hog (sow)
would be butchered for
sausage and lard. All
'.the. chitterlings were
cleaned and used as
sausage casings. Miss
'Maggie's,. smoked
sausage links were
renowned around
Calhoun County. Liver
and lite haslet would be
cooked for the help and
anyone else lucky
enough to come by. At
the end of the day,
backbone and lesser
cuts would be divided.
up among the help, and.
then in a few days, we
,could look forward to a
snack of sauce meat
(Hog Head Cheese).
The only things thrown
away were the hair and
Ssqueal.
Every afternoon, we
'would all sit on the
front porch, shell peas,
butterbeans, peel figs
or whatever that had
been gathered from the
garden that day and
needed prepping to be
'canned' or put in the
freezer. We loved to
watch the quail parade


across the front lawn.
Usually someone
would,, come by with
news, good or bad, hap-
pening somewhere, in
the county and later
confirmed by the
County Record on
Wednesday afternoon.
We would go in
"before dark. Grand'
Momma would get out-
a dish pan; wash my
feet and sponge me off.
She would then fix my
supper, maybe a left
over chicken wing frorni
dinner or an apple tart
made from extra biscuit
dough from breakfast
'and a cold glass of
homemade buttermilk.
We would watch TV
until, bed time. Jim and
Jessie and the Florida'
Boys were Grand
Momma's and Aunt
Eula's favorite. TV pro-7
grams. Grand Momma
bought the TV in 1954,
the first in our neigh-
borhbod, and she let
Sam and me, invite a
few boys over to watch,
the World Series.
which made us the
most popular boys int
Blountstown.. I.I still
have dreams about
those wonderful ,days
and wake iUp thinking
about them often.
Qur Grandfather,
Samuel" Anders
Leonard, was born in
Bladen County, North
Carolina pn September
11, 1871 and died
February 4, 1938 in
Blountstown. Our
Gr an dm o t h er,
Margaret Liza
"Maggie" Player
Leonard, was born in
New Zion, South
Carolina on October
23, .1885 and died
March 2,7,, 1962 in
Blountstown. They are
buried in'the Nettle
'Ridge Cemetery, north
of ,Blountstown in
Calhoun County,
Florida.
.This great 'nation
still has it's dilemmas,
but Calhoun County
was a wonderful place
to grow'up. Thanks to
our wonderful heritage.
The faithful are
looking toward the
eastern horizon waiting
on our Lord to return.
So children, be ready
when he does, so we
can all meet again in
Heaven forever and
ever.

RECIPES FROM


LEON BAILEY, JR.

Inspired by his Grandmother,.
Maggie Player Leonard


Sour Dough Biscuits Maggie's Best

2 cups all purpose flour
3 tsp. baking powder
1 pinch of salt
1/2 tsp. soda
2 tbls. lard
3/4 cup buttermilk

Sift flour, baking powder, and salt together. Rub in lard
with finger tips. Mix soda and buttermilk, add slowly to
first mixture and mix to a soft dough. Pinch off enough to
roll out in your hand about 2 inches in diameter and 3/4
inch high. Dust with flour and place in well greased biscuit
pan. Bake in hot over (450 degrees) 10 to 15 minutes.
Makes about 12 biscuits.
*Note: Maggie had a large wooden bowl she made bis-
cuits in. She would save some of the dough mixture for the
next time she wanted to make biscuits.
When she was ready, she would mix the above ingredi-
ents, then add the starter mixture she had saved to the
new mixture. Once again, she would save some of the mix-
ture when she finished, cover with a linen cloth and put it
away until the next time.
**Note: Apple Tarts With left over dough, she would
add some sugar to the mixture and roll out dough balls to
/ about 6 inches in diameter, fill with apples or other fruit.
Fold and bake them along side her biscuits. This was mine
and my brother, Sam's, favorite.
