Constable Morris Issues Warnings Of Illegal Sales Here

Constable Wade Morris says he has received numerous complaints from citizens about local people being affected by the use of rubbing alcohol, extracts, Bay Rum, and canned heat.

Morris has warned the local merchants of the danger involved when people purchase these products for human consumption.

County Attorney Tibby Wright stated "a person who is convicted for knowingly selling these products for human consumption faces a fine of $100 to $1,000.00, or one year in prison, or both."

The Constable said he is asking the co-operation of merchants in this serious matter as an effort in curbing the purchase of such items by users in this area.

Farmers Barbecue Huge Success

Approximately 85 farmers and Leonard Chamber of Commerce members attended the farmers barbecue and meeting in the school cafeteria, sponsored by the chamber.

This is the second year the Chamber has sponsored such a program. With such success as the Monday night program proved to be, it appears this will become an annual affair.

After a delicious barbecue dinner, Chamber President Tom Hymer introduced Fannin County Agent Gene Graves. After a short talk, Mr. Graves turned the meeting over to Charley Spence, Extension Agronomist, of Denton. Mr. Spence showed slides of grain sorghum and cotton, explaining the various effects of fertilizer on these crops. He also led a discussion on proper and improper use of fertilizer, answering questions of various nature.
