DOG


FIGHT

Drug operation

leads to arrest

in dog fighting
by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

Gadsden County deputies, working an
undercover drug operation in the Sawdust
community south of Quincy, stumbled on
what may have been a dog fighting venue
last Thursday.
This week, 58-year-old William Thomas
Randall of 71 Mabry Lane was arrested and
charged with 19 counts of fighting or baiting
animals (a felony), 19 counts of cruelty to
animals and one count of possession of a
firearm by a felon. Thomas' bond was set at
$58,500.
Deputies took 25 animals from the prem-
ises, 22 being pit bull terriers, that had
apparently been used for dogfighting,
according to a report released by the Gads-
den County Sheriff's Department. Lt. Jim
Corder said in the past the office received
complaints about dogfighting but until
Thursday had been unable to infiltrate the
venue. "This is a very close knit group of
people, they don't trust outsiders and 'this
type of activity is attractive to the criminal
element," he said.
This is what happened:
The GCSO drug unit was on patrol in the
area around 2 p.m. and noticed a group of
about 10 men standing in Randall's yard
looking at an injured dog. "We saw a num-

help for

kids here

by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

Parents caught in the middle of
an insurance dilemma can now
get help. KidCare, the state
answer for parents who can't
afford to obtain insurance at
work and who make too much to
qualify for Medicaid, are getting
a chance to insure their children,
up to 18 years old, for between
$15-$20 per month.
Like most good offers, this
one, which allows affordable
doctor visits and prescriptions
for kids, will not last long. The
time to apply runs out Jan. 30.
Also, another reason to get a
move on is that the program is
only allowing about 100,000
more children to enroll
statewide.
"The applications can be
picked up from the Gadsden
County Health Department or
Healthy Start or by going on line
to www.FloridaKidCare.org, or

Quincy's Barkley Security will have a front row

(and back door) view of Superbowl activities

Robert and Lomar Barkley look over Jacksonville maps.


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
Football players and fans alike sometimes refer
to the Super Bowl as "The Big Dance" because
professionalfootball just doesn't get any bigger.
Many of them would do just about anything to
,be a part of the pre-game and post game parties
and hoopla that will take over Jacksonville from
the end of January through the first week of Feb-
ruary.
One local businessman and his wife will have
front row seats. Maybe not at the game, but to just
about everywhere else.
Barkley Security has landed the security services
contract for many of this year's Super Bowl
events.
"We will be responsible for providing security at
the hotels where both teams will be staying as well
as 12 other major hotels in Jacksonville. We have
the gala for the football players' wives, The Taste
of Jacksonville (a four-day eating extravaganza), a
celebrity bowling event, and celebrity parties
hosted by J-Z, Magic Johnson, Jermaine Dupree
and possibly P-Diddy," said Lomar Barkley, the
company's vice president who along with daugh-
ter, Melissa, is handling most of the leg work. One
of the couple's sons, Robert Barkley Jr. is also
working out of the Jacksonville office.
Company president, Robert Barkley, Sr.


said landing the lucrative contract was a matter of
putting together a presentation for the Super Bowl
host committee.
"In 2004, the host committee held what
amounted to a job fair at the Jacksonville Civic
Center for any company that had something
needed for the game. We already had an office in
Jacksonville and were invited to participate. We
set up a booth and handed out brochures on what
we had to offer.
SRepresentatives from the Super Bowl then inter-
viewed us to see if we could provide the man-
power and if we met their requirements," Barkley
said. Following the background check, the com-
pany was approved.
"That's when the real work began," Lomar
Barkley said. First, there was the matter of deter-
mining what they would be responsible for secur-
ing and how many people would be needed.
They had to decide what needed 24-hour protec-
tion and how much work they could handle. The
company is also working closely with the com-
pany that manages all Super Bowl activities.
"The company is called Contemporary Services
and all they do is stage big events worldwide.
They do the ushers, crowd management, etc. so;
they may be calling us in for additional work, too,"
she said.

Gretna replaces Poole with


Bogan as financial consultant


More people change their lives in January

than any other time of the year.


by BYRON SPIRES
'Times Staff Writer
It was in with the new and out
with the old at Gretna's city com-
mission meeting Tuesday night.
Gretna commissioners were
unhappy with their financial con-
sultant, Angela Poole, so they
hired Bill Bogan to take her place.
YPoole had been hired during for-
,mer interim city manager Kenneth
Barber's reign to help the city
'catch up on their delinquent audit
reports and to help prepare the
city's budget.
Her contract with Barber and her
duties as financial consultant were
a topic of discussion at last
month's meeting. Commissioner
Helen Franks asked then what her
specific duties were and at the
time there was some confusion
about her exact duties.
- It was decided that her duties and
responsibilities should be drawn
,up and presented at this month's
meeting for review by the com-
missioners.
Her contract was on the night's
agenda for discussion when cur-
rent interim city manager Diane
Formman informed the commis-
sion that the audits were still
bogged down.
Formman said that the city's
audit firm, Watson and Rice, had
been unable to get the needed
.information for the 2002 delin-
quent audit from Poole. She said
'the city's tax revenue sharing
money of about $100,000 was
,being held until the delinquent
audits were caught up.
In addition Formman said that
the state was holding grants for the
water interconnect between
Gretna and the City of Quincy
until after the audits were com-
pleted.
The state holding the city's rev-
enue sharing money was having a
detrimental effect on the city's
-financial status Formman told the
commissioners.
Poole was not present at the
meeting and unable to defend her
work or discuss her contract.


Franks suggested that Poole be
relieved of her position and Bogan
be given the position.
City attorney Harold Knowles
said that since Poole did not have
a contract the commissioners
could just hire her replacement.
The problem then was how to hire
Bogan and meet the city's charter
which required all positions be
advertised.
Under Knowles' direction a
motion to declare the city in a state
of financial emergency was passed
and Bogan was hired to replace
Poole.
Bogan was present at the meet-
ing and had spoken earlier to the
commissioners about his ability to
help the city complete the delin-
quent audits. Bogan said that he
had 25 years of financial experi-
ence in both Leon County and
Gainesville.
He was also praised by Knowles
who said Bogan "knows his stuff,"
adding, "let him come in here and
correct this mess."
Formman reminded the commis-
sioners that she had suggested
Bogan, a CPA from Tallahassee, as
a potential financial consultant last
year.
The commission had declined
Formman's suggestion, but later
replaced Formman with Barber as
interim manager. Barber in turn
hired Poole as the city's financial
consultant.
Gretna's financial woes do not
stop with the audits. The city faces
the possibility of losing one of its
wells.
According to Knowles, he has
been in contact with the Faircloth
family that now owns the city's
well. The previous owner, St Joe
Paper Company, leased the acre of
land where the well is located to
the city.
The property was sold to the
Faircloth family. According to
Knowles, the family had contacted
the city over the past 18 months in
an attempt to work out some type
of lease agreement. but the city
had not responded. Knowles said
that a representative of the family


had asked the city to remove all of
the well equipment from the prop-
erty. The city has about $450,000
invested in the well on the prop-
erty. He said the Faircloth family
was also frustrated that city
employees had used the land sur-
rounding the well to hunt and fish
on.
In lieu of losing the lease
Knowles said he had negotiated
the city a second chance to correct
its slow response to the Faircloth's
request for a new lease. The com-
missioners approved a "memoran-
dum of understanding" which
gives the city six months to prove
they will uphold their end of the
bargain. Knowles added that it
was important that only authorized
city employees be on the premises
and that the access road and well
area be kept clean.
Water and sewer bills were again
before the commissioners. This
time William Secoy from Florida
Rural Water Association was back
to talk to the commission about
their rate structure. Secoy was
before the commission several
years ago in the same capacity. He
was quick to tell the commission-
ers that he did not intend for this
visit to be like his last trip to
Gretna.
"I'm not here to argue," Secoy
told the commissioners. Secoy
was not received well on his last
visit to help with the city's water
rates he said. He told the commis-
sioners that the last rate analysis
he had recommended was not used
and that the rates the city used had
not been signed off by Florida
Rural Water.
"I'm willing to.do another rate
analysis for you," Secoy said. But,
he warned the commissioners that
Gretna's current rates were well
below that of similar cities across
Florida. He said that a city of 800
connections averaged $32 mini-
mum on water compared to
Gretna's $15.75. Plans were made
for Secoy to get the information he
needed and be back in three
months for a workshop with com-
missioners on his findings.

Church receives variance from county commissioners


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

A family-owned church, Bostic
Temple, that was denied a vari-
ance two weeks ago was given a
reprieve Tuesday night during the
regular meeting of the Board of
County Commissioners. Church
members said they were given a
church by a developer from
Apalachicola who only wanted
them to move the structure.
Their intent is to move the
building to a site in the -Shiloh
community where they already
have a church that has been oper-
ating for the past 35 years. The
problem rose when members were
informed that they must pave the
parking lot, which would require a
holding pond.
"We're a small church and it
would take us years to come up
with that kind of money," said one
of the members. The church's
engineer, Mary Margaret Ferris,
said that a gravel parking lot was
affordable and would not allow
water to flood properties downhill
from the church.
Commissioner Sterling Watson
pointed out that in the past few


years the county had required
other churches to pave parking
lots. "I don't think it's fair to make
some churches pave and not oth-
ers. This (request for a variance) is
too much of a deviation," he said.
Bruce Ballister, outgoing direc-
tor 'of Growth Management, said
he favored waiving all storm water
restrictions for all churches and
that he had planned to make such
a recommendation.
"I don't mind changing tunes
when it fits it. It's always good to
do that," said Commissioner Ed
Dixon. Bostic Temple is located in
the district he represents.
Bostic Temple members said
they wanted to comply with the
county's codes but that the
required paving and holding pond
would present a financial hard-
ship. The commission decided to
grant the church's request for a
variance.
In other matters, commission-
ers approved a Piggly Wiggly
Shopping Center west of the
Quincy city limits at the comer of
U.S. Highway. 90 West and Bostic
Road. The applicant, Kevin
McDaniel, first made the request
for a small shopping center with a


Piggly Wiggly grocery store as the
anchor store two years ago. "I
think he wanted to wait and see
what impact the Super Wal-Mart
would have," said Ballister.
The issue of pedestrian traffic
to and from the store caused some
concern for several commission-
ers. They wanted the developer to
add a sidewalk from the store
south on Bostic Road. "My fear is
that people walking to the store
(about a quarter-mile) have
nowhere to walk but in the street.
There are no sidewalks and I can't
see people having to walk in the
street," said Commissioner Dixon.
While commissioners cannot
require the developer to add a
sidewalk, they will make the
request.
Also, Gadsden Community
Hospital representatives asked the
commission to consider giving the
hospital a little more than $17,000
to outfit a new lobby. The new
lobby, which will be named for
longtime physician, Dr. Jessie Fur-
low, will feature new seating, wall
and window treatments and new
flooring. Commissioners, how-
ever, did not comment on the
request.


New' slogan for school system is


bI) ALICE DL POINT
T mic Edil'r


Reginald James, Gadsden
County's new superintendent
of schools, laid out his plan for
success Monday in a county-
wide meeting of administra-
tors, teachers and staff at East
Gadsden High School.
James' slogan for the dis-
trict is "no excuses" and he
proposes to turn around the
failing schools with the plan he
calls "Building A Brighter
Future, The Best for The Best."
He said his vision to change
things includes more certified
and skilled teachers, highly
motivated students, curriculum
aligned with that of state and
national standards, total com-
munity involvement, parental
involvement, recognition and
rewards programs, and assess-
ment. In July, teachers will be
paid every two weeks instead
of monthly.
Under the James plan, staff
selection, professional devel-
opment and evaluation are the
keys. He plans to:
*Ensure the selection of
competent certified teachers
with a desire to "teach"
*Identify "best practices"
schools/districts that are simi-
lar to Gadsden and exchange
visits for consultation, training
and sharing of successful
strategies
*Develop a leadership acad-
emy
*Focus all professional
development on "how to"
applications and follow-up


Establish a "lead teacher"
program
'Ensure that all principals
are academic leaders
*Provide a system of
teacher, staff, administrator
evaluation that is aligned with
student achievement
Curriculum, instruction and
assessment will get a shot in
the arm as James wants to see:
*All core courses aligned
with standards as appropriate
*Instruction targets stu-
dents' learning styles and helps
them stretch and adapt to a
variety of styles
*Align all assessments with
the standardized requirements
*Infuse reading across the
curriculum
*Disaggregate and analyze
date and use to focus instruc-
tion
*Develop co-curriculum
activities (drama, dance,
poetry, debates)
*Ensure professional excel-
lence through teaching mastery
*Ensure the incorporation.of
study skills at each level
No school system can find
success without parent
involvement and support.
James' plan calls for:
*Develop and distribute a
"Parents Toolkit"
*Engage parents in support-
ing student learning
*Engage faith-based com-
munity in promoting education
and parent involvement
*Provide parent training
*Hire parent liaisons to
work with parents


'no excuses

'Convene parent sessions to
keep them apprised of various
activities
*Provide learning opportu-
nities for parents
*Procure private support for
parent learning and job oppor-
tunities
*Coordinate activities with
other agencies to assist parents
with housing, job prep, child
care, educational advance-
ment, and other family needs
James also plans to tackle
administrative and organiza-
tional development and align-
ment. To that end, he wants to:
*Organize and align the
central administration with the
needs of the students
*Emphasize the use of data
analysis by district, school,
grade, classroom, teacher and
student
*Task force to study paper-
work reduction
*Establish a discipline pro-
gram such as "Positive
Action/character develop-
ment" and alternatives for
more effectively dealing with
disciplinary problems
*Establish a commission to
review the effectiveness of the
current disciplinary program -
*Institute measures
designed to improve the dis-
trict' s image
*Organize a team to identify
and secure grants
*Expand the district's sys-
tem of school alternatives, e.g.
vocational alternatives, educa-
tional alternatives magnets,
etc.

PINIONS


Just call me old fashioned


I have always been a girly-girl. Growing up with boys will do
that to you I think. I like, little cute things, foo-foo, poo, poo things
around the house and frilly stuff and ribbons sprinkled throughout.
I like things that match and colors that are coordinated. But what I
like most of all are shoes. Lately, I've gotten into handbags as
well.
But I realized something very disturbing while shopping this
past holiday season. There are hardly any little girl things in the
stores. I mean "little" girl things. What I saw was way too much
grown up clothes cut down to kid sizes. Some of the outfits really
bordered on risque for the 5 to 10 year old set.
These were no play-dress-up outfits either. Someone, and they
must have good reason because there was a lot of this stuff out,
must have felt that this is what parents want for their little girls.
There were little outfits that you could see through in places that
shouldn't be seen through. There was fake fur, feathers, rhine-
stones, cutouts and other suggestive adornments to the little cloth-
ing. Some of these things were is places much, much, to provoca-
tive for a child to wear.
For the past few years I have heard mothers complain about how
difficult it is to find clothing appropriate for their little girls. And
until just recently I really hadn't paid that much attention to what
was out there for the little misses. Animal print is in fashion right
now and that's fine, but in one department store I saw a little pink
dress among the size 6s that had animal prints cut out in the shape
of hearts and sewn in where the child's breasts would have been if
she had any. Too suggestive.
Call me old fashioned but a little girl has no business wearing
glittery lip gloss, except when playing within the confines of her
own home. There are real makeup kits for little girls that they are
expected to wear to school and other outings. Of course, they come
-in a handy carrying case. Some are even just right for the kid's ,
school backpack. With ec er\ thine else the teacher has to monitor,..
-now they have to be on the lookout for a first grader making sure
Sher gloss is just right before she recites her ABCs.
Last week on one of those news magazine television programs
mothers were interviewed about why their daughters are permitted
to wear such things. Although their daughters were a little older (8
to 12 years old I think), these four or five seemingly intelligent,
middle to upper middle class women said that while they didn't
necessarily agree with the clothes their daughters wanted to wear
they had no choice.
"If I didn't buy them, she'd just throw a fit. What else could I
do?" asked one bewildered mom.
She didn't ask me, but I can tell her what to do: get a backbone
and be the mother and your rules are the ones that will be the law,
not the child. Last time I looked, throwing a fit never killed any-
body.

Economic Develpment
Dear Editor:
History has proven that African-Americans could care less about the
color of one's skin who represents them. But let's face facts, when it
comes to Economic Development Gadsden County is left inhaling the
dust from our neighboring counties. Meanwhile the conditions of the
"have-nots," is deteriorating day by day. So I fully support and under-
stand that it was necessary to make dramatic changes at the top.
Gadstonians are not expecting General motors to locate here from
Detroit, Michigan. What they are asking is to give our new commission
and economic development a chance. It's time for infrastructure in this
county to be awakened from hibernation. When one journey's from Gads-
den west on I-10 to Jackson county it is visible to see the Dollar General
Distribution Center that Gadsden county missed. One can only think what
could have been, regardless of whose fault it was.
I believe the only thing that will stop the feuding in this county and
bridge us back together again as one people under God is economic
development. For reason unknown people seem to get along better when
they have high self-esteem and able to feed their families and pay their
bills. For this to be successful we must be willing to adopt change. Posi-
tive change does not come without opposition or noise; therefore it is
understandable that there are some that oppose the changes and are mak-
ing a lot of noise.
Aretha McMillan


Election Unfair
Dear Editor,
The 2004 election was neither fair nor truly democratic. Make no mis-
takes about it, Bush/Republicans stole another one. Kerry really won the
election; only cheating and vote rigging by his opponents robbed him of
the prize much as Gore was robbed in 2000. Kerry should narrowly have
won Ohio and Florida and the presidency but the game played on Democ-
rats and America in 2000 was more expertly performed this time.
Cheating by Republicans was planned and widespread, especially with
the new touch screen voting machines. Swing states like Florida and Ohio
were targeted and the machines were pre-programmed to change every
fifth vote for Kerry to a vote for Bush.
Why do you think Congressional Republicans blocked every attempt
to ratify a touch screen paper verification bill for the last two years?
Ron Lowe


It's all about helping others

A couple of weeks ago I covered the Paul Faircloth- Sr. Memorial
Deer Hunt for disabled hunters held in the western part of the
county. The hunt was put on by Mike Layerd and Russell Smith.
It was certainly an interesting experience, to say the least.
My Uncle Herman Sawyer was confined to a wheelchair the last
20 years of his life and he was certainly one of my mentors when, I
was growing up.
He was such a strong individual and wonderful man. He had a
wonderful wife in my Aunt Vera, who not only took excellent care
of him, but loved him dearly. Her love for him was something that
words could not explain.
There is a special bond.between someone that is confined to a
wheelchair and their caregiver. You can say or think what you want
to, but it takes a special person to stay through the thick and the
thin.
Well, I saw that same care and love when I interviewed those
hunters. Each one of them had someone that was there to care for
them. I saw a lot of love at that deer hunt.
One couple in particular caught my attention: the Krolikowski's,
Ray and Jennifer. Here is a couple with a young family and a whole
lifetime ahead of them facing one of life's hardest hurdles. Ray is
paralyzed from the neck down and unable to use his arms or legs.
They were taking it in stride, you might say. They faced each day
as it came. I sat down to talk to them and got up a different person.
Jennifer talked about some of the trials and tribulations that the
family had over the past 15 months since Ray's accident. They had
their share, with sickness, financial issues, growing children, plus
the day-to-day problems that come with raising a family.
But, the one thing that tugged at my heart the most was what she
said had really bothered Ray after the accident. When his girls
would climb up in his lap as he sat in the wheelchair he was unable
to hug them.
A simple thing like a hug, and Ray was unable to touch his chil-
dren or put his arms around him.
.Have you ever thought aboutanever being able to hug someone
ever again? I guess that would depend on how important a hug is to
you. Well, it's important to me and I know in my heart I would miss
it just like Ray does. My heart went out to Ray and Jennifer and
what they have ahead of them, but they are strong people. You can
tell by the way they talk they intend to make it.
Mike Layerd may be mad at me for saying this, but after hearing
some of the hunters' comments he told me he was having trouble
keeping the lump in his throat under control.
I did too Mike, not just because of what those guys told me, but
about two fellows that decided to make a difference in somebody's
life.
What better'tribute to a friend than sharing that fellowship with
those that otherwise could not have enjoyed one of life's little pleas-
ures. I'm sure that Paul Faircloth Sr. is pleased with what his two
friends are doing in his honor.


Habitat for Humanity at work in Gadsden County


No Fishing..........



Gadsden County has many beautiful places. This is a
small pond west of Quincy. A place to stand and soak in
nature, but beware that the urge to wet a hook doesn't
become to strong and lest we try and catch a fish.

Ten families in Gadsden
County who formerly lived
in sub-standard housing now
have a decent home to live in
thanks to the work of Gads-
den County Habitat for
Humanity. These new home-
owners worked in partnership
with this core of dedicated
folks to help build their
homes. These homes were
not gifts. The homeowners
worked side by side with vol-
unteers in the actual con-
struction, and through a no-
interest loan are buying their
homes. The monthly pay-
ments are usually less than
they would have had to pay
in rent.
Gadsden County Habitat
wants to expand, to involve
more of the wider commu-
nity, to build more houses.
We are now at a point of
reorganizing and want to
reach out to churches, civic
organizations, and individu-
als, and to cooperate with
other agencies and non-profit
organizations to address
poverty housing in our area.
Habitat for Humanity Inter-
national began its work in
the U.S. in Americus, GA.
One of their first goals was
to help eliminate poverty
housing in their county


(Sumpter).
By great effort and coordi-
nating these with other agen-
cies and organizations with
similar goals, they have done

that. We need to set such a
goal for ourselves. Those of
us who have worked with
Habitat can recommend it as
a blessing to all who partici-
pate. We invite you to join us
in this endeavor.
We are now gearing, up for
builds, (the first one is being
planned now) and we need


to select families and to
recruit volunteers. The first
application meeting will be
at 6:30 p.m. on Jan. 18 at the
Agriculture Center in Quincy
(U.S. Hwy 90 W.)
This meeting will be for
applicants for a Habitat
house. We are seeking fami-

able in both Spanish and
English) will be distributed
to those who qualify. If you

Quincy Police Department adds

Explorers post for 14-20 year olds
The Quincy Police Department proudly announces the newest addition to the department, the Quincy
Police Department Explorers (junior policemen and women).
Exploring is based on a unique and dynamic relationship between the explorers and the police depart-
ment. The Explorer Program is based on five areas of emphasis: career opportunities, life skills, serv-
ice learning, character education, and leadership experience. The Explorer Program is made up of four
young men and four young women from the community who may seek employment in the field of law
enforcement.
Explorer cadets range from 14 to 20 years of age. The program provides the cadets with many great
opportunities and a chance to decide if law enforcement is the career they wish to seek. Some benefits
of being an Explorer cadet include a chance to personally work along with the uniform patrol respond-
ing to calls and helping with special events in the community. Being a cadet will also open many doors
to scholarships only given to Explorer cadets. Cadets will also, if they wish to become a law enforce-
ment officer, have the opportunity of being sponsored (have their academy training paid for by the PD)
and have priority for employment with the Quincy Police Department.
An important goal of the Explorer program is to help young adults be responsible and caring peo-
ple, both now and in the future. Exploring uses "character education activities" to help young adults
develop the ability to make responsible choices that reflect their concern for what is at risk and for the
people involved.
Currently, the Explorer cadets are asking for support from the community, which will assist with the
purchase of uniforms and equipment needed. The Explorer cadets greatly appreciate any support you
give in this important stage of their lives. If you wish to support the Quincy Police Department please
contact Officer Barber or Officer Richardson at the Quincy Department. If you are making a monetary
donation; make checks or money orders payable to the Quincy PD Explorer Program.

By Joe Ferolito


THEY'RE NUMBER ONE!
USC left no doubt in my mind
who the number 1 college football
team is this season.
Tuesday night's dismantling of
Oklahoma should erase any doubt
in any body's mind.
I know undefeated Auburn and
Utah would take on USC at the
drop of a hat to get to prove they
were the top dog. If they ran into a
Trojan team that played like they
did in the Orange Bowl the War
Eagles or the Utes wouldn't have a
chance.


4 t


^""
t-


Yes, USC was on stage Tuesjay
night and their guys were the stars.
Oklahoma's guys didn't even gain
stand-in roles. USC has the longest
current college football wvirning
streak at 22. They will no coubt
begin next season as the number I
team. If Heisman winner Matt


Leinart skips hi, final year at USC
to go pro. the Trojans will have a
question mark at the qb spot. They
however have enough returning to
extend their winning streak and if
they jump a few bumps could well
play for another title.
One thing for sure I'd bet. If it
comes down to 3 unbeaten's again
and Oklahoma is one of them, the
BCS bunch will let the Sooners be
the odd man out. Especially after
their showi\\ngs in the last two cham-
pionship games.

,POOR. POOR. PICKING
I may be on USC's bandwagon
no%\ but in predicting bowl games I
Picked the Sooners. The Orange
SBowvl wasn't the only one I missed.
Overall, I was 15-13 in picking
bowl winners which isn't too good.
If I went to Vegas and tried to make
a living betting' football games, I'd


have to get in the unemployment
line pretty quick. I'm not very
good at predicting games but I do
have fun trying.

NFL PLAY-OFFS
Fun is what I'm going to try to
have in predicting this week's NFL
play-off games. I'm a poor 50%
already in the pros as I choose only
6 of the 12 play-off teams in my
pre-season pro football column.
Maybe I can do a little better
than 50% with this week's four
games.
I think 3 of the 4 home teams
will win. The home team that will
lose will be Seattle who will be
eliminated by the Rams. Home
team winners will be Indianapolis
over Denver. Green Bay over Min-
nesota, and San Diego over the Jets.

FSU STARTS YEAR OFF


RIGHT
It was a good w\eek-end for FSU
sports with the Seminoles winning
Saturday's Gator Bowl against West
Virgiia in football and then taking
apart Florida in basketball Sunday.
The Sunday win %was unexpect-
edly easy despite the fact Florida
was without leading scorer Matt
Walsh.
Alexander Johnson was a load
inside, Von Wafer put 20 points on
the board. and Adam Waleskowski
continued his all around play to
help do in the Gators.
If these three can keep putting
up numbers and get some help from
what looks like is shaping into a
deep team the Seminoles may turn
things and improve on their 8-6
record despite a tough ACC sched-
ule ahead. After the start FSU had.
making post-season play (NTT or
NCAA') would be great.


Cold weather offers new video for home workouts wh
o nortunities to eet creative with vou can't get to the gym.


All four county high school boys basket-
ball teams returned to action Tuesday night.
Two teams won, two teams lost.
East Gadsden had a District 2-3A home
game with Taylor County and took the meas-
ure of the Bulldogs for the second time this
year winning 71-55. .-
The Jaguars led by as many as 32 late in
the second quarter before coach Demetric
Salters went deep in his bench.
"I wanted to get as many guys as I could
some minutes." Said Salters. "Down the
stretch we'll need all the experience and
depth we have to get back to state."
In Tuesday's,game Octavius Stafford's
23 points led the way. Brandon Bryant added
19 and East Gadsden's record went to 8-6.
"The win was good." Salters continued. "But
we're missing an average of 15 free throws a
game. That's cost us at least 4 wins, and if we
don't get better at the line it's going to cost us
more."
The other winning team Tuesday was
Tallavana who avenged an earlier season loss
to Panama City Christian. The Lion whipped
the Crusaders this time 64-50 out scoring
their foe in every quarter. The Suber broth-
ers, Phillip and Matt topped the Lion scoring.
Phillip had 22 points and Matt hit 11. P.
Suber also-had 9 rebounds and 5 blocked
shots for Tallavana whose team was boosted
by the return of guard Keith Cooper who
missed some games due to injury.
Cooper had 7 points and 5 assists Tuesday
as the Lion raised their record to 7-3.
Munroe returned to action Tuesday with a


game in Thomasville against Brookwood. In
a close contest the Bobcat lost 46-43.
A pair of 3-pointers byB BeeJay Philmore
and a bucket by John Dooner got Munroe a
quick 8 points and a tie with a minute to go.
..Brookwood hit a13 themselves 1tdJ the Bob-
/cats couldn't get a good last shot at a basket
in the 3 point loss.
Dooner who popped I~ points led the
Bobcat scoring while Philmore finished with
11. Munroe's record is 3-7.
Also on Tuesday West Gadsden lost to
Ashford, Ala. 56-42 in a home game.
The Panthers got treed early when they
fell behind 17-8 after the First quarter. They
managed only 5 second quarter points and
Ashford led 31-13 at the half. A third quarter
run cut it to 37-30 but the Panthers couldn't
catch up and lost their 7ih game of the year
against 3 wins.
Eight Panthers scored in the game with
Larry Jackson leading the way with 13 points.
All four teams will be busy this next
week.
East Gadsden plays at home Friday host-
ing Suwannee Co. The Jaguars are away Sat-
urday playing at Rickards.
'Tallavana will play at Dale Co. Alabama
Friday, and host Covenant next Tuesday in
their games.
Munroe's slate finds them at Apalachicola
Friday, and hosting FAMU Tuesday while
West Gadsden hosts TCLI Thursday, and
North Florida Friday before playing a road
game at Jefferson Co. next Tuesday.

the Gadsden County area. To
continue moving forward as a
premiere educational facility,
RFM has launched an ambitious
annual campaign. The overall
goal is to raise $35,000 in addi-
tional support ($1,000 for every
year that the school has been
providing a quality education for
area children.)
While tuition dollars cover the
minimal costs of providing an
education for a child, the annual
campaign will provide the means
necessary for numerous resource


and budget requirements that
tuition cannot cover. The school
needs to continue to attract qual-
ity teachers, maintain the low
teacher-student ratio, and
upgrade items such as textbooks,
vans, and buses. Letters have
been sent to the nearly 1,000
alumni, alumni parents, parents
of current R.F.M. students, and
friends of the school asking for
their support of the annual cam-
paign.
Robert F. Munroe Day School
has touched the lives of so many
people in our community, mak-
ing it difficult to contact each
and every one of them for the
annual campaign. If you would
like to be added to our contact
list or need further information
about the Annual Campaign,
please call the Director of Devel-
opment for R.FM. at (850) 567-
7302. Giving to the annual cam-
paign will make a difference.

Dogs
Continued from Page 1
the center of attention had fresh
wounds all over its body, some
still bleeding. "We think we just
missed the actual dog fight by
minutes," Corder said.
Of the 10 men in the yard, no
one admitted to owning any of
the animals. Randall said he did
not own the injured animals but
told authorities that he owned or
was the guardian of the animals
tied to trees. When the animals
that were tied up were inspected
Corder said all showed signs
consistent with dog fighting.
"One animal about a year old had
one of his lips completely ripped
off his face," Corder said.
Deputies also noticed several
containers of sprays, medicines,
and other veterinary supplies
used to treat the wounded ani-
mals. Corder said Randall admit-
ted only that he trained animals
for endurance, agility, and
strength and that what happened
to the dogs after they left him
was not known. The training
materials found on the property
and allegedly used to train dogs
included a large plastic container
filled with water. "The animals
area weighted down and forced
to tread water. Ropes with large
knots were hung from tree limbs;
the knots were coated with lard
to entice the dogs to bite,"
Corder said.
Also around the yard were
blood spotted carpets, and blood
stained boards. Sandy Chris-
tiansen of the United State
Humane Society was called to
the scene. Corder said Chris-
tiansen informed them that the
carpets and boards were consis-
tent with the square pit fighting
areas .
Inside Randall's trailer deputies
documents recording a training
program for the animals, a 22-


Aft





As



8


caliber bolt action rifle, a small
amount of marijuana, and several
pieces of drug paraphernalia.
The dogs were taken to the
Quincy animal shelter where
they remain. "They cannot be
adopted because they have been
trained to fight. These are not
family animals," Corder said.
"This was big time and big time
money. These animals start out
costing about $500 each. I'm told
they can cost as much as
$10,000. We have had a lot of
animals stolen around here and
we believe some of them have
been used for bait dogs. That's
the real shame of it all, the inno-
cent family pets that are stolen
for something like this," said
Sheriff Morris Young.
Young is encouraging citizens
who suspect dog fighting and the
use of illegal drugs to call the
GCSO at 627-9233.
"This case isn't over, we're
going to make more arrests," he
said.

"As of next week, we're not
going to take on any more (pri-
vate) places," she said, adding,
"The important thing is that we
not spread ourselves too thin.and
not be able to deliver what we
have promised." The Super
Bowl is by far the largest event
the company has taken on in a
short time period.
There are plans to turn a down-
town park into Super Bowl Vil-
lage where all kinds of activities
related to the games will be held.
"A lot of things will be going on
at once and we will be in the
middle of it," she said.
Just what economic impact the
game will have on the county is
hard to figure. "We will defi-
nitely be taking people from
here to work the events," she
said.


James
Continued from Pae 1
ating only 31 employees over six
years. The 2004 school system
employment stands at 1057.
- "As a district we cannot continue
to lose students," he said, adding,
"the raises walk out the door every
year."
To offset the decline James has a
multifaceted plan.
Teachers, he said, need to have a
passion for teaching. He talked
about visiting a school in
Gainesville that had been an "F"
school and was now an "A"
school. He said the change started
at the principal's office and spread
through the teachers. That princi-


pal took the data gleaned from the
testing and started working on
ways to correct those weaknesses.
"We are going to be a data driven
district," James said. "If the data
says Johnny is good in math and
weak in reading then we will wbrk
on the reading."
The percent of students scoring
level two or below were flashed on
the screen. The numbers were not
impressive. Sixty-eight in math
and seventy-two in reading, the
graph showed.
"We cannot dig ourselves out of
this hole until we teach reading,"
James said. "Anybody satisfied
with where we are," James asked
the crowd.
A mumble of "no" barely
reached back to him.
The two screens flashed some


startling facts.
Discipline is a problem we
intend to deal with, James said.
Fighting was up the chart showed,
as was theft, vandalism and the
most startling of all, weapon pos-
session/use.
His plan is a more structured disci-
pline plan. Alternative education
he feels is the answer, getting 17-
year-olds out of sixth grade classes
is a priority.
He plans to turn Carter Par-
ramore into a full-fledged school
and expand the system's voca-
tional classes.
Other ideas that James intends to
initiate include a more aggressive
teacher hiring process, "You'll
never see me 50 teachers short in
August," he said.
A strong co-curricular and extra


curricular helps build school pride
he said.
He has put Sherrie Taylor in
charge of cutting teachers' paper-
work load. That comment brought
James a rousing round of
applause.
In addition he intends to enlist the
communities partnerships, Satur-
day School Programs, Test Prep
seminars, tutorial programs, and
na early release day once a month,.
The biggest round of applause
came when he said that staring
July, 1 employees will be payed
bi-weekly.
His primary motto he said was
"No More Excuses."There will be
no more passing the blame for
poor performance, James said.

Gas Engine Service Technology program at Gadsden Technical In-
stitute from David McPhaul, instructor.
As a business partner, support includes monetary and equipment

ing the past 20 years.
"Mr. Bates' service on the school's advisory committee continues to
be a valuable asset to the program," McPhaul said.
In presenting the award, he emphasized that Mr. Bates understands
the importance between business and education. "Through his efforts
many young people from the Gadsden School District have experi-
enced employment and advancement opportunities in small engine
repair," he said.

Tallavana Beta Club


collects for victims


Tallavana Christian School BE-

with a very active commitment
to community service.
In October there was a drive to
collect hygiene items for hurri-

TCS BETA Club collecting ted-
dy bears and other stuffed ani-
mals to donate to the Gadsden
County Sheriff's Victim Assis-
tance Program.
To close out the 2004 year, in
December the club sponsored
Operation Christmas Child.
Under this program, shoe box-
es were collected and stuffed
with toys to be sent to Franklin
Graham's organization for distri-
bution to the less fortunate at
Christmas.
In the spirit of Christmas, TCS
BETA collected hams for Christ
Town and collected a large box
of toys for the Havana Police De-
partment's annual toy drive.
The National Beta Club pro-
motes character, develops lead-
ership skills, encourages service
involvement, recognizes
achievement, and provides tech-
nological advantages to students

"I'm so proud of our BETA

Craig, TCS BETA Sponsor. "Our
local BETA club has been recog-
nized 3 years in a row for Na-

ple."
Tallavana Christian BETA has

ing the recent tsunami disaster
