The City of Midway will
be receiving a $427,000

The Florida Department of
Community Affairs awarded
the grant to Midway last
week. The money will be

According to Midway city
manager Paul Piller part of
the money approximately
$334,000 will be used for
water, sewage and road

The Quincy Conference Center's owner says County Commission Chairman Ed Dixon owes for
the Victory Party celebration in 2004.


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
A local businesswoman filed a
complaint Wednesday morning
with the Florida Ethics Commis-
sion alleging that County Com-
mission Chairman Ed Dixon did
not pay $3,500 owed for use of
the Quincy Conference Center,
Inc. on Nov. 27, 2004.
Elizabeth Clary said a verbal
agreement was made with Dixon
to use the facility to host a vic-
tory celebration for all of the
newly elected officials.
The agreement, she said,
included payment for the use of
both ball rooms at the facility,
advertisements for two weeks in
two newspapers, staff fees, invi-
tations, printing, faxes, postage,
reimbursement for decorator
cost, set up, and clean up fees.


Ed Dixon
But when the party was over,
everyone got paid except Clary.
By all accounts, including Clary,
the celebration was a success.

They are children who could have been in
anybody's Sunday School class.
Twelve of them sat in the jury box with their
young faces seemingly scrubbed clean last
Thursday morning. None of them was yet 18
years old.
The only thing that gave them' away was the
bright orange jumpsuits they wore and the
clanking of chains and handcuffs and shackles
as they shuffled from their seats to stand before
the judge.
Another 50 plus teens and pre-teens sat in the
courtroom with their parents. They too were
waiting for their names to be called to appear
before Circuit Judge William Gary. Their
crimes not yet harsh enough the land them in

How to turn the Gadsden County School District
around took another approach last week.
"You've tried everything else, I think it's time you
gave God a chance," the Rev. Ken Scrubbs, a com-
munity outreach minister from First Baptist
Church in Leesburg, told a group of nearly 100.
Most of the ministers, community leaders, and
those who provide services funded by state and
federal grants came to learn more about how to
access the millions of dollars set aside by Gov. Jeb
Bush to support faith-based organizations that
operate outreach programs.
LaKaye Austin, representing the Open Door
Church of God, and a parent, said she came to learn
what she and her church could do to help students.
"We're all in this together. If the church can help,
if I can help, if anyone can help now is the time,"
she said.
"It is important that we solicit the support of
community organizations, particularly the faith-
based community because that's a key component
of our turn-around effort," said Superintendent of
Schools Reginald James.
He said he wants the churches in the community
to become eligible to receive dollars so they can
work together with the school district to help stu-
dents gain success. For many years the school
district has been in the unenviable position of being
among the lowest ranking in the state when it
comes to test scores. Last year was even more dis-
mal when more than half of the districts in the
county were slapped with D and F grades on the
statewide examinations.
Last Friday's workshop was one of three
designed to help faith-based organization learn
how to get a 501 (C) 3 designation. which will

allow them to apply for and get federal and state
grants to fund projects.
"We want to leave here with a direction, the goal
of which is to ultimately prepare Gadsden County
students for the FCAT," James said.
. When the teaching was over, participants got a
little dose of preaching from Scrubbs who has
earned state and national honors for the mentoring
program he operates in Leesburg. It didn't start that
way for Scrubbs who said he saw a need in his
community and went into the streets alone to help
children. Now, he said, people from all over the
south come to look at his programs that serve 600
students in Lake County.
The same, he said, can be done in Gadsden

VanLandingham eyes improvements
in six month the new property appraiser plans a more customer convenient office


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

Just a week ago, Clay Van-
Landingham, the newly elected
Property Appraiser took office. In
that week, he has decided what
direction he wants the office to
take to better serve the citizens.
"So far things have gone great,
Sits a bit too early to know what all
there is to expect. We've been
'pretty busy with the homestead
exemptions and we'll go on like
that probably until the deadline
passes April first," he said.
He wants to make the office
easier for people to use. "I've
been looking into increasing the
hours of operation We're now
Open from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., I'd
like to go from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. A
lot of people work in Tallahassee
and don't get off until 5 p.m. This
way they would have a little more
time," he said. Currently the
seven-man staff is working on
how to man the office. "What I
want is someone here who will be
'able to answer any question a cit-.
izen might have and that will take
-some talking to each other and
working it out," he said.
He would also like to make
improvements to the website. "I
would like to be able to collect
information from the tax collec-
tor's office. Maybe have a link to
make it easier. I can access it now,


but I have to go out and get back
on," he said.
VanLandingham said he wants to
take his office on the road to edu-
cate citizens. "I'd like to develop
something like a travelling
demonstration I could take out to
groups, churches, homeowners
associations and even schools
because the seniors will be prop-
erty owners soon and they need
to know what we do," he said.
He want to clear up some of
the mystique about the office. "A
lot of people think we raise taxes.
We don't raise their taxes we put a
value on their property," he said,
adding "There is a lot that goes on
in this office that people don't
see."
His plans are to put together a
PowerPoint presentation that is
easy to understand and is
portable.


The office's website is "in
pretty good shape" he said, but
there is room for improvement
there, too. "I'd like to see us show
the actual property when we call
up a piece. There won't be room
for error. The last thing we want
is to see a picture of a property
and it's the wrong property," he
-said. Some counties already have
that technology and VanLanding-
ham is sure we can do the same
for citizens in Gadsden County.
When Michael Hollingsworth
retired earlier this year, he took
more than 30 years of experiences
with him. Michael Moore has
moved up to that position, but
Vanlandingham will have to hire
a new person. It's a matter of
necessity. There are 24,000 sepa-
rate parcels of land in Gadsden
County and the state requires that
each piece is looked at every
three years. "So we take it in one
thirds...this year we'll look at
about 8,000 pieces...that's a lot
for two people," he said.
Finally, he is a Certified
Florida Evaluator and the state
requires that he become a Certi-
fied Florida Appraiser. "I would
like to see at least three people in
the office become Certified
Florida Evaluators, that's my
goal."
For a man who has only
been in office a short time, he has
big plans for the little office.


County selects City of Quincy as internet provider


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

The City of Quincy got the nod
Tuesday night during the regular
meeting of the Board of County
Commissioners to provide internet
service to officers under the aus-
pices of the Board. The city and
TDS Telecom both bid for the con-
tract:"
The Internet 'Technlhg' "(IT)
committee said both organizations
gave excellent ,presentations but
gave the recommendation because
TDS has more fiber cable under-
ground than the city at this time.
However, the committee also felt
that in the long run the better part-
ner will be the city.
"With all things being equal I
lean toward the City of Quincy.
For them to try to get a computer in
every household says something to
me," said Commissioner Ed


Dixon.
"I don't see how you can say
that when one company is below
ground. What we should be more
concerned about is reliability of
service," said Commissioner Ster-
ling Watson, questioning the city's
above ground fiber optic lines.
John Thomas, director of
the city's telecommunications
department. said tha w~lL Inoith-
iig is 1I..I percent sure, me city has
not had a outage in the' la year
and when one occurred two years
ago it was the result of someone
cutting into a wire in Louisiana.
Thomas said the city offers
"redundancy", which means there
are "back-ups to our back-ups to
our back-ups." He said there are 36
hours of back-up in a third battery-
powered source if the other two
power sources go out.
Thomas said that while TDS
does have its fiber optic lines.


underground, the wires do not go
to the building like the city's over-
head wires.
Donald Lee, IT committee
chairman, said a representative for.
TDS Telecom had been invited,
but that she failed to show up at the
meeting.
"The City df Quincy has
embarked on a greater service. It is
Abpolgly r^ \u,onderful s, iice.."
said Dixon. before making a
motion to aept .the City of
Quincy' s bid and reject the recom-
mendation of the committee.
In other matters, commissioners
thanked Hugh Stephens for his
years of service to the Planning
and Zoning board. He was pre-
sented a plaque by the Board of
County Commissioners.
The Board also released nearly
$18,000 to redecorate the lobby of
SGadsden Community Hospital
from the hospital trust fund.

Its better late than never.
Monday at 6 p.m. students at
West Gadsden High School who
were not honored for academic
achievements 2003-2004 school
year will finally get their props.

Pauline Gunn, the nearly 190 stu-
dents mostly -- from the former
Chattahoochee High School -- did
not receive their certificates and
medallions for academics the last
year the school was open. "For
some reason those incentives
were not given to the students.
The one thing we never want to
do it let our students go unre-
warded for academic success and
positive behavior," she said.
All students who earned a 3, 4,
or 5 on the FCAT will be given


an award.
Gunn said parents are asked to
attend the event as well. "We urge
parents to come out and support
their children. All it takes many
times is for the parents to have
high expectations of the children.
We want to encourage them to
keep doing what they have been
doing to motivate the students,"
Gunn said.

Cattle farmer's heart still ticking after two years
Lynn Lewis a heart transplant recipient talks about his experience


by BYRON SPIRES
Times Staff Writer

For most of us a visit to the
doctor is a hurry up and wait
process, for Lynn Lewis it
became a hurry up and then
hurry some more.
Lewis was on the list of recip-
ients for a new heart back in
October of 2002 when the call
came that a donor had been
found.
For Lewis it all happened so
Quickly that he really wasn't'
quite ready.
He had been told that only 18
percent of those who applied for
hearts lived long enough to actu-
ally receive a new heart. He was
also told that it would take
months at the best before a
likely donor would be find,
Lewis had been approved by
Emory Hospital in early October
to be placed on the list. His call
came at 5 p.m. on October 22.
"I couldn't believe things
were happening so fast," Lewis
said.
They did happen fast.
A phone call to Louise Jones
started the ball rolling. She in
turn called her pastor Greg Kell,
who called Glenn Webber, who
drove Lewis to Atlanta.
By 6:10, Lewis, his wife Eliz-
abeth, and Webber were on the
road. The trio reached Atlanta in
record time Lewis said.
There is a very short window
of opportunity for transplanting
hearts and by the next morning a
new heart was beating in Lewis'
chest.
One setback would slow his
healing process down when he
went back under the surgeon's
knife for a bleeding complica-
tion. Once past that, Lewis said
he has felt like a new man. By
December he i\. ~jialkn! ,a
mile.every a1' .
The decision to apkpl i: fif"i-
new heart was as Lewis said -
- an open and shut case..


"When Doctor Orson Smith,
my heart doctor and I talked
about the possibility of a new


back for testing. He said that
they stay in the Mann House, a
home donated by the Mann


S'i

ing time with his cattle. photo by Byron Spires
heart, I told him I was alive, but Family for transplant recipients


really not living and I was ready
for the transplant," Lewis said.
Smith recommended Emory
Hospital and his son, Andy
Smith, who is head of transplant
surgery for the hospital, as his
doctor.
Lewis has nothing but praise
for the team of doctors and
nurses that gave him a new heart
at Emory.
SAbout making the final deci-
sion to go for the heart trans-
plant Lewis had this to say, '"I
felt like I had a good life and it
had gotten so bad that I felt I
needed to get better or go on."
He made the right decision he
said. Two years later Lewis still
has to take a handful of medi-
cine which includes anti-rejec-
tion medication. He has to make
regular trips to Emory for test-
ing to make sure he is not reject-
ing his ne\. heart.
Thlie I culid h lli : icaidJ was
that he has to go \\wlh ess and
less frequency. He likes the
folks at Emory he said, theytake
good care of him when he goes


and their families near the hos-
pital.
Otherwise he said he does
whatever he wants to do.
It has not always been that
way.
In 1977 Lewis suffered his
first heart attack. Then another
one in 1979 that forced him to
leave his job at the U.S. Post
Office on disability.
And a third one early in
2002. "I didn't think I was going
to make it through the third
one," Lewis said about his last
heart attack. After that episode
Lewis received a stent in his
heart to open up his clogged
arteries. So much damage was
done to his heart by that point
that Lewis was having trouble
walking the hundred feet or so to
the mail box and back.
Ironically most of the causes
of heart.attacks don't fit Lewis:
He was \xi\ aJLi\e. 1101 o\ 'r-
Seight, nor 'did he smoke prior
to all of his heart trouble. I guess
it was more heredity than any-
thing else," Lewis said about his


years with heart trouble.
His life is back to normal
now, a far cry from his pre-sur-
gery days he says. His daughter,
Amy was only three years old
when he first became sick. For
Lewis to have some energy and
be able to spend time with her
and her husband has been an
added benefit.
Lewis grew up on a farm and
had always farmed. His illness
stymied his ability to do much
farming, but he has always dab-
bled with a few cows. Today
he still, has a few brood cows to
occupy some of his time. He
especially likes being outside
and working in his yard and with
his cows.
When asked what he wanted
to do once he had recuperated
from his surgery Lewis was not
interested in a long trip or some
exotic task. "I just wanted to
do some manual labor," Lewis
said.
He has received a new lease
on life he said and doesn't hesi-
tate to tell you why. "There is no
doubt in my mind that God had
his hand in it all the way
through," Lewis said. It was
prayer that pulled him through
all of the tough times.
"It really humbles you to
know that so many people were
praying for you."'
He said that people were
praying for him just because his
friends were calling and asking
them to put him on their prayer
list. "Prayer works, and I'm
proof of that," Lewis added. He
feels that very day is a blessing,
and he is thankful to see a new
day arrive.
Having experienced what
Lewis has over the past 25 years
he has some good advice for
those dealing with their own
life's troubles.
"Play the hand you are dealt
and make the best of it that you
can. It is not always what has
happened to you, but the way
you handle what has happened
to you," Lewissaid.
And most importantly Lewis
added, "always have a positive
attitude."


Speller gets big b-r-e-a-k


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

The room was quiet and all
Javario Bates heard last Friday
morning was his heart beating. It
was the last round of the. middle
school annual Spelling Bee compe-
tition and the word was apology.' "I
know its easy to spell but there was
a lot of pressure on me," said the
eighth grade student from West
Gadsden High School.
"A-P-O-L-O-G-Y. I knew Ihad
spelled it right. I was so happy," he
said. Although it might seem odd
to some that a young boy would be
so elated over spelling, you have to
know the history of Bates and
spelling. First of all, he comes
from a long line of spellers. "My
mom and dad like to spell," he
said. So does his 17-year-old
brother. Bates said that periodi-
cally his mother, Pamela, who is a
pharmacist at Florida State Hospi-
tal, will throw out medical terms
just to see if he or his brother can
spell them. "Sometimes I can and
sometimes I can't. When I can't it
sends me to the dictionary," he
said.
Competitive spelling started
five years ago for Javario in third
grade. "I have always been in the
spelling bees at my school for a
long time. I was always the runner-
up. I came in second and was
always the alternate," he said. His
friend, Michael Kelly, for the past
five years has been winning the top
spot.
So, this year when Michael mis-
spelled the word psychodrama,
Javario thought he had a chance.
In the weeks leading up to the
district competition, Javario spent
about an hour a day practicing. A
few days before going he said his
mother helped out by calling words
(that were much harder than apol-
ogy) to him.
Since last Friday, Javario has
been keeping his head in spellers
and dictionaries. "Sometimes I
asked for the definition and then I
asked'for tlheword to beui'ilci in a
senenc." he said.
He learned the hard way to ask
that the word be used in a sentence.
"One year I think I didn't go further
because I didn't ask them to use the


word in a sentence. I thought they
said snicker like the candy bar, but
what was said was sneakers like
shoes," he recalled.
He has already begun studying
for the regional competition that
will be held in Tallahassee in late
spring. "If I win there, I get an all-

principal, Pauline Gunn, said the
Tallahassee Democrat, sponsor of
the regional Spelling Bee, sends a
list of words to each student to use
as a study guide. "That doesn't
mean the students can just learn to
spell those words. Some of the
words will come from the list and
others will be chosen at random,"
Gunn said.
"I'm getting ready now, but
when I get that list I'm going to

ontemplationsi


By: .llice DuPont

No city or county operates solely by elected officials and
employee. There are a lot of volunteer committees and boards that do
much of the work that elected officials and staff just don't have the
time to do. These are ordinary citizens who do not get paid, but who
put in countless hours to make the county and cities a better place to
live. The other night Hugh Stephens was presented a plaque for his
service on the Planning and Zoning Board. Martha Koonce was also
presented a plaque during the last Planning and Zoning meeting for
her service.
Some of these boards are not easy, either. After you've left
your full time, paid job you get to sit on a board and once a month to
make decisions that may be in the best interest of the county or city,
but may not be very popular. These meetings can often last for hours
and if you make an unpopular stand, your neighbor might not speak to
you for a while.
These are the unsung heroes and heroines. Some of them put
in years and many belong to more than one board.

I know it is a few weeks early, but I want to tell you a love
story.
This is a story of what happens at the end of most love stories,
after the part that says "they lived happily ever after."
It was my turn to pick up the county's meeting agenda for the
paper and I went by David Gholson's office that Monday morning with
that in mind.
"Come in," he said.after I tapped on his open door.
"Just came by to get the agenda," I said as he pointed to the
corner of the desk where the agendas lay all neatly stacked.
"Mr. David, hlo\\ are .you goingg "I asked ,
He looked up at me from his chair and solemnly said, "I miss
my sweetheart."
There was one of those pregnant pauses that you have when
you want to say something, but you have no idea what to say.
His face confirmed his comment and as I stood there searching
for the right words to say I could tell he was feeling a deep loss in his
heart.
"I'm sorry," was the best I could think to say at the moment.
I cannot tell you why, but I sat down in David's office that
afternoon and listened.
I had heard that his wife had recently passed away and I guess
he needed someone to talk to about Frankie and their life together.
David's words still linger in my mind from that morning's talk.
He told meof his life together with Frankie, about her work
arid his.
He told me about his wonderful children and grandchildren.
He smiled when he talked about them.
He also told me of the ups and the downs and how he and
Frankie had survived them together.

Stop dog fighting

Dear Editor,

I have watched and waited for
the recent phenomenon when Gads-
den County stepped into the twenty-
first century. Recent publicity of the
"dog fighting ring" was only
because of a drug bust but netted a
"dog fighting ring" to boot.
SWhatever the circumstances, I
am pleased to know that our new
Sheriff, Morris Young, has been
able to do what no other law
enforcement officer has done in the
past.
I hope these efforts end in arrests,
incarcerations, and convictions for
greater crimes. I have been hearing
of these pit bull fighting rings since
high school days and that was over
fifty years ago.
I can't believe that we have
allowed such behavior to continue
to the present day and time!
; This county is one of the worst in
the state for letting animal cruelty
gb unnoticed and it's time for a
change.
Thank you Sheriff Young and


please continue to do whatever it
takes to eliminate such .barbaric
behavior which goes along with
other contemptible acts. The time is
now!

Jo Ann D. Hamilton

Animal cruelty a problem

Dear Editor:

People for the Ethical Treatment
of Animals (PETA) is the world's
largest animal rights organization,
with more than 800,000 members
and supporters dedicated to the pro-
tection of animals. This letter is in
reference to a recent case that your
office is handling, involving
William Randall, age unknown, of
Gadsden County. Randall faces 38
charges stemming from his alleged
connection to a dogfighting ring
said to have been discovered by
authorities on December 30.
According to news sources, investi-
gators found an unknown number of
"torn up" pit bulls -- bearing wounds
and scars consistent with their hav-
ing been fought -- and paraphernalia


Why? Because someone has to do it and they're not the kind
who sit around and complain, but get up to participate in decisions
that will affect them.
Several years ago my nephew, Stan, was complaining about a
particular program in the county. He had it all wrong about what, why,
and how things worked. He had been carrying around false informa-
tion in his head for who knows how long. So, I let him vent then sug-
gested that he join the board of that particular program, since I knew
they needed new board members. He joined the board and worked
diligently for several years until he rotated off. If nothing else he
learned the truth about the program and he learned how much hard
work people put into it to keep it going. He's never said another word
about the organization nor the people who volunteer year in and year
out to serve.
There are many boards throughout the county that cry out for
volunteers. Others get their members through appointments. But if
you wish to serve, it's probably just a phone call away. There is
always a need for more people. Contrary to what some of us would
like to believe, there is no concerted effort to keep anyone off boards.
Many of those who criticize don't want to serve because they know
deep down they have nothing to offer and empty rhetoric is better than
rolling your sleeves up and getting to work.
Want to know what boards are available in your area of inter-
est? Call the county manager or the manager of the city in which you
live. Or better yet, call me. The number is below.


David was not a young man, then he was 79 years old and still
working he said, to "make ends meet."
But, what would touch my heart the most was his undying
love for Frankie.
She had been ill and his daily ritual was to go to work and
then by the nursing home to spend some time with her every afternoon.
To David at that moment his life was crumbling around him.
He could no longer sit and talk to Frankie or hold her hand. He felt as
if part of his life had ended and he did not know what he would do.
He was truly missing his sweetheart.
I left that day with a lump in my throat to say the least. But it
was mixed feelings actually. It's sad to miss someone you loved that
much, but isn't it also wonderful to have that kind of love in your
heart?
David lived in Chattahoochee and Frankie is buried at the "Old
Mt. Pleasant Cemetery."
He continued to work in Quincy and every day he would stop
on his way home by the cemetery and sit with his sweetheart.
DaN id pjsed awa\ 1ist Wediid\ ,.i hi< lihome iitetCl in his
eep at age 1. ,
I. wqnt to David's funeral Friday.
He was a well thought of and respected man as the crowd at
his funeral would attest.
His friends spoke fondly of him and his family.
David was eulogized like a good man should be, by his
friends.
The speakers talked about his exploits and the funny things
that happened over the years. They talked about his love for his family
and his church. They talked about his experiences in World War Two.
He was.a man of dignity and trust they said.
As I listenedto the speakers I couldn't help but think back on
mine and David's conversation.
Yes, it was sad, but you know David.had a good life, a good
family and good friends that cared about him.
Actually this love story has a neat ending.
What better way to end your life than to have your friends say
good things about you and most importantly to be back in the arms of
'your sweetheart.

Mental health professionals and
top law enforcement officials con-
sider all forms of cruelty to animals
to be a red flag, The American Psy-
chiatric Association identifies cru-
elty to animals as one of the diag-
nostic criteria for conduct disorders,
and the FBI uses reports of animal
abuse in analyzing the threat.poten-
tial of suspected and known crimi-
nals. Experts agree that it is the
severity of the behavior -- not the
species of the victim -- that matters
(see enclosure). Furthermore, dog-
fighting is invariably linked to ille-


photo by Byron Spires


gal gambling and the presence of
illicit drugs and weapons (as offi-
cials' reported findings in the afore-
mentioned operation appear to illus-
trate). Raids on animal fighting
operations frequently bring with
them the discovery of major drug
networks and the seizure of large
caches of firearms. Violent crimes
are also commonly associated with
blood sports. In response to these
trends, a number of jurisdictions
have formed interagency task forces
to ensure their communities' safety.
Needless to say, we are relieved to
know that your local authorities
treat such crimes with the serious-
ness that they deserve.
On behalf of our thousands of
members in Florida, we respectfully
urge your office to prosecute


William Randall and any co-defen-
dants subsequently named to the
fullest extent of the law. Because
repeat crimes are the rule rather
than the exception among animal
abusers -- and this is especially true
of dogfighters -- we ask that, upon
conviction and in addition to being
sentenced to a period of incarcera-
tion, Randall be barred from any
future contact with animals and that
any animals that may remain in his
charge be immediately seized. We
also ask that he be required to
undergo a thorough psychological
evaluation followed by mandatory
counseling at his own expense -- the
safety of the community may
depend on it.
Thank you for your diligence
and for your time and consideration.
Sincerely yours,

Martin Mersereau, Casework Divi-
sion Manager
Domestic Animal and Wildlife Res-
cue & Information Dept.

Get blood pressure checked

Dear Editor,

Project CHOICE Begins its Door
Knocking Campaign in Midway
African-Americans across the United
States experience a much higher rate
of hypertension (high blood pressure)
and diabetes than any other culture.
African Americans in Gadsden
County share these same disparities.
Although genetic differences have
been a contributing link to the cause
of hypertension and diabetes, there is
evidence that many environmental
and sociological factors are just as
important. These specific factors
include: lead exposures and cumula-
ti, e lead burden. e\perierice..,.f racial
chlcnmintlani, i :iand j,-ih .u.tiinli,,ei
ployment security, and stress.,...
Identification of the social and
environmental causes of what is
called the "silent killer", hyperten-
sion, is the first research project for
Project CHOICE (Center for Healthy,
Options and Innovative Community
Empowerment). FAMU and the Har-
vard School of Public Health estab-
lished project CHOICE in 2003. The
driving force behind the project is
community, empowerment, which is
the power of the community taking
charge of its own health. The
research component of the project
will involve surveying of individuals
between the ages of 30 60 and resi-
dents of Gadsden County.
Recently, under the advisement of
Health Advisor, Lizzie Lawson of
Midway, a mock door knocking cam-
paign was administered in Midway,
Quincy & Greensboro, which resulted
in good participation from residents,
according to the Community Out-
reach Information & Dissemination
(COID) staff. The up and coming
door knocking campaign is scheduled
to start Saturday, January 29th in
Midway. Trained and certified Health
Advisors (HA) and Volunteer
Research Assistants (VRA) consisting
of community and faith-based mem-
bers, health professionals and FAMU
students will conduct the door knock-
ing campaign. The project is aiming
to knock on 2,000 doors throughout
Gadsden County. A randomization
selection method was used to target
census tracts where African Ameri-
cans make up 50% or more of those
targeted areas. These individuals will
receive a post card in the mail,
announcing a visit from the Project
CHOICE staff.
Educational materials will be pro-


vided on hypertension (high blood
pressure) and diabetes after comple-
tion of the survey.
Project CHOICE is community
driven and aims to assist the commu-
nity in understanding the health risk
issues, implications, and educate the
community on how to achieve health
solutions. Project CHOICE is taking
the steps to ensure that the commu-
nity is empowered and proactive by
the results of the study. All informa-
tion from the study will in turn be
given back to the individuals and
health community as a whole.
When Project CHOICE Knocks,
make the right CHOICE, get involved
by answering yes...do it for yourself,
do it for your community or do it for
the loved ones in your life.

A prayer for children

Dear Editor:

I recently re-discovered this
poignant devotional A Prayer for
Children". While you may have seen
or heard it before, I thought it may be
a timely reminder of the realities of
what childhood means.
As we celebrate the teachings and
leadership of the Rev. Dr. Martin
Luther King, Jr., I think it appropriate
to focus on the many definitions of
justice, and on ways we can strive to
secure a better quality of life for our
children.
"A Prayer for Children" by Ina J.
Hughs We pray for children who
sneak popvicles before supper, who
erase h.l&e'l"in hiljdi ,ori %r-. ; v ho
can dii'Vr fiiid'their shoes. 'And we
pray' forf those who stare at photogra-
phers from behind barbed wire, who
can't bound down the street in a new
pair of sneakers, who never "counted
potatoes," who are born in places we
wouldn't be caught dead, who never
go to the circus, who live in an X-
rated world. We pray for children
who bring us sticky kisses and fistsful
of dandelions, who hug us in a hurry
and forget their lunch money. And we
pray for those who never get dessert,
who have no safe blanket to drag
behind them, who watch their parents
watch them die, who can't find any
bread to steal, who don't have any
rooms to clean up, whose pictures
aren't on anybody's dresser, whose
monsters are real. We pray for chil-
dren who spend all their allowance
before Tuesday, who throw tantrums
in the grocery store and pick at their
food, who like ghost, stories, who
shove dirty clothes under the bed, and
never rinse out the tub, who get visits
from the tooth fairy, who don't like to
be kissed in front of the carpool, who
squirm in church and scream in the
phone, whose tears we sometimes
laugh at and whose smiles can make
us cry. And we pray for those whose
nightmares come in the daytime, who
will eat anything, who have never
seen a dentist, who aren't spoiled by
anybody, who go to bed hungry and
cry themselves to sleep, who live and
move, but have no being. We pray for
children who want to be carried and
for those who must, for those we
never give up on and for those who
don't get a second chance. For those
we smother with love, and for those
who will grab the hand of anybody
kind enough to offer it.

rS TIME FORA CHANGE
Lord we thank you for your mercy, love and compassion. There
is nothing we have done, nor can do, to deserve your love. Help :
us to remember some of the chances we had that could have been Si 1
gone also. This day let us as God's chosen people clothe ourselves
with compassion. Praying daily with love and kindness for the
condition of our world. With humility, gentleness and patience
knowing that God is in control. Colossians 3:12 and 2nd
Chronicles 7:14 states that if my people which are called by my
name shall humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways
then I will forgive their sins and heal the land. We Christians are wearing the name of Christ.
We need to examine ourselves. Take time out and praise God for his mercy towards us.
Remember 9-11, remember the storms this past year, now check the news daily and see how
many lives were called in just a matter of minutes. It's time for a change. If we start studying,
reading and obeying God's word, we will witness the change. Example scriptures are, Exodus
33:19, Nehemiah 9:13 and 9:19, Psalms, 51:1, 103:4 and 103:8. Let us not forget all of his
benefits to America. St. Luke 13 KJV says there were present at that season some that told
him of the Gallileans, whose blood Pilate had mingled with there sacrifice killed Jesus said or
those eighteen on whom the tower in Seloam fell, and slew them, I tell you nay. But except
ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish. It's time for a change, America or we as individuals
could be next. Let us all seek the Lord and repent. We need to draw nigh to God in obedience
to his word.

Minister Ellen R.
Walker Green


Brief history of
ministry's beginning

I accepted the call of preach-
ing on February 9, 1954. The
only times I have not been to
Church was when I was in
with my babies. I had five
babies; four are deceased and I
have one son, Sylvester Wayne
Walker.
On February 5, 1954, I went
to my grandmother's house
and while I was there, the
Holy Ghost overpowered me. I
left home that evening at 4:30
p.m., to make sure I did not
hear what the Lord was saying
for me to do. I tried to run, but
it did not work ... The more I
heard the Lord speaking to
me, to go and preach His
Gospel to all nations and He
would be with me even until
the end of the world, I didn't
know what to do. Running
didn't work. I tried to eat and
that didn't work. I was 17
years old.
After 6 p.m., mama came
looking for me. She asked
grandmother had she seen me.
Mama found me in the bed-
room covered up, trying to
hide my face. Mama looked at
me and told me that she knew
what was wrong with me.
Mama had seen me in the
Spirit the night before. The
Spirit of God had spoken to
her and told her that her
daughter was going to preach
the Gospel all over the land.
Mama took me into her arms
and sat me on her lap and
cried: "Jesus, thy son of
David! Have mercy on my
child." I did not confess it that
day, but on February 9th, to
my father, the late Reverend
William Randolph. He told me
that he felt something was
going on with me. Then my
father prayed for me until I
began to confess what the
Lord had told me to do.
I praised God and I give
Him all of the glory and honor
to this day. I have been
through many trials and tribu-
lations; ups and downs. Also,
being a woman back then in
ministry. But I stood fast and
pondered them in my heart,
and continued on.
I'm glad when Jesus said
that the race is not given to the
swift or the strong, but to him
that holds out and endures to
the end.
Sisters and brothers all over
the world, if God has found
favor in you and chosen you to
do His will, you better do it.
I'm glad to be a Soldier of the
Cross.

The Honoree Program for
Minister Ellen Walker Green
will be held Saturday, Jan.
22 at 6 p.m. at the Old
Southside Community Cen-
ter, Lincoln Drive, Chatta-
hoochee. For further infor-
mation please call 850-442-
9306.

Lion gnaws by Carrabelle
by Joe Ferolito
"We've played sluggish since the Christmas break." Tallavana boy's bas-
ketball coach Tom Bolton sighed after his Lion team won Tuesday night.
"We're getting back into the conference schedule and sure need to concen-
trate more and start playing better, I feel like we will."
The Lion won their 10th game of the season Tuesday, beating Carrabelle
54-34 in what was a sluggish ball game.
Both teams had trouble getting down the court and finishing off shots
though Tallavana stumbled to 23-13 halftime lead. Three point goals by
Craig Bolton, Keith Cooper, and Phillip Suber helped the Lion widen the gap
early in the third quarter but the Lion never got a rhythm and struggled put-
ting the Panthers away.
Bolton's 25 points led Tallavana and Suber had 11. Bolton also had a big
night rebounding as he pulled off 16.
The win gave the Lion a 1-1 week. They lost to Aucilla 64-45 last Thurs-
day. Ridgely Plains scored 29 for Aucilla and Drew Sherrod added 12.
Aucilla led early in the game and continue to widen the margin. Phillip
Suber's 21 points and 10 rebounds topped the Lion effort.
In girl's play last week the Lion lost to Aucilla 46-27 and Carrabelle 51-
34.
L. dia Bolton had big games in both losses hitting 22 points against Aucilla
and 30 on 10 3-point shots against Carrabelle.

Tuesday they host Emanuel of Dothan. Both contests are Panhandle Chris-
tian conference games.

East Gadsden wins three
Coming into this week, first year East Gadsden head coach Demetric
Salters, knew would be big. The Jaguars were to face three District 2-3A foes,
if they were to gain the district's top seed, wins would be important. Salters
and his team game out just fine.
"We felt going into this string of games we needed to take control of the
district." Salters said. "I can't be any prouder, we came into all three games
ready to play, and we got some great results."
In all three contests the Jaguars had good first halves and jumped out to
nice leads.
The first game was a home encounter last Thursday. In that one East Gads-
den shot to a 30-20 half lead then went on to beat Wakulla 60-40 as 3 play-
ers scored in twin figures. Octavious Stafford hit 17, Brandon Bryant scored
12 and Eric Cato got 10 points. Cato also had 12 rebounds and 6 blocked
shots while Bryant had 14 assists.
Friday night, in Tallahassee the Jaguars got off to a 37-23 halftime lead
and went on to win 69-49 with Bryant's 29 points leading the way. Darius
Jackson shot in 11 points and Cato again led in rebounds with 11.
Tuesday night Madison Co. saw the Jaguars go up 41-28 at the half. The

County's girls doing

well on the hardwood
Not only are our county girls' basketball teams per-
forming well but several players on each team are stand-
ing out around the Big Bend. Munroe's Danielle Fagg is
leading the Big Bend in scoring and assists while earning
second in rebounding. Fagg, a senior guard, is averaging
25 points per game, 12 rebounds and almost eight assists
each game. Averaging a double double in both scoring
and rebounding is no easy task, especially for a 5'5"
guard. The team is 8-4 on the season with a loss to FAMU
and a win over Carrabelle last week.
West Gadsden's Tyeshia Battles is fourth in scoring in
the Big Bend averaging over 17 points each time she goes
out on the court. She is also dishing out the points with
over six assists per game to put her third in the Big Bend.
Shanteeka Ray is hauling down rebounds on both ends
with an 11. 6 rebounding average. Battles .scored 29
points to up that average in a convincing 70-32 win over
Liberty County. The team went to 12-3 overall with the
district win.
East Gadsden center, sophomore Chelsea McMillian, not
only scored 20 points in a big, big win over ranked Florida
High, but McMillian brought down an amazing 23
rebounds in the 59-55 win. Shyrelle Home added 16
points and Tiffany Hayes added a double double of 10
points and 10 rebounds as the team moved to 12-3 overall
and 6-0 in district play.

Vending machine burglars nabbed Fcabs n County footbalI


Money from soda pop and
candy machines was apparently
enough for 22-year-old Michael
Robinson and a juvenile com-
panion for the last few months.
Until Tuesday night, they had
been pretty successful. Their
luck ran out when they decided
that the drink machine at the
Quincy Fire Department was ripe
for the picking.
Evidently thinking all the fire-
fighters were asleep, the two
began trying to pry the machine
open with a crowbar. At least one
firefighter was still awake and
heard the noise outside. When he
looked out he saw two people
dressed in black clothing and
wearing ski masks. The officer
called the Quincy Police Depart-
ment and officers arrived while


the burglary was still in progress.
"When the officers approached
the bandits they ran southwest
across the City Hall Park where
another officer was able to head
them off and subdue one of
them," said Capt. James Hughes
of the Quincy Police Depart-
ment. Robinson's identity was
revealed when he was
unmasked. His juvenile accom-
plice was apprehended later
Tuesday night at home
Hughes said that after question-
ing, the pair admitted to several
burglaries within the city limits
and implicated another juvenile
in the crimes. "One of them
admitted to taking $11 from one
of the machines and an undis-
closed amount is still missing
from the burglary at the fires sta-


tion Tuesday night," Hughes
said. When the juvenile's book-
bag was searched, officers found
$92.65.
Hughes said QPD had been
investigating several cases
involving burglarized and dam-
aged vending machines at
schools and businesses. Robin-
son has been charged with resist-
ing an officer without violence,
burglary of a structure, criminal
mischief, and obstruction of jus-
tice. Other charges are pending
in reference to other burglaries
and for the other juvenile impli-
cated.
If anyone has any additional
information concerning these
crimes or any other crime, please
contact Hughes at 850-875-7340,
ext. 232.

their boys basketball week go
thus.

home game hosting Sneads. The
visiting team led 45-22 at the

things around with a 43 point
second half and came away with
a 65-63 win.

Dixon

Continued from Page 1

There was a live band in one room,
a DJ in another room, the food was
fine and the alcohol flowed freely.
And best of all, for everyone who
showed up, there was no charge for
anything.
Dixon said he doesn't owe the
Conference Center a cent because
Clary donated the facility for the
celebration. He fad no further com-
ment.
Clary said the original plan was
that the conference center would
host a victory celebration, but would
charge a small admission fee of $5
to help defray expenses. During one
of the meetings between Clary and
her staff to discuss the celebration,
Dixon suggested that the event be
free to the public. Dixon, according
to Clary, said he could get sponsors
for the event. "Commissioner Dixon
had and wanted full control of all of
the funds," Clary said.
Two days after the event when
Clary made the first inquiry about
payment, Dixon allegedly told her
that he had not received any money
from sponsors. "He (Dixon) said he
would call me by Monday, Nov. 29,
2004 when 'the check' should be in
from Progress Energy. The check
was a donation of $4,500. Clary said
she assumed all donations would be
made payable to the Quincy Confer-
ence Center since Dixon told her
prior to the event that Progress
Energy would have to make their
check payable to a third party
because they could not make a
check out in his name.
"Commissioner Dixon received
several donations including cash
donations from sponsors, the total
amount is still unknown. Progress
Energy initially issued a check in
Commissioner Dixon's name and
after he tried to run it through his
class reunion account at a local
credit union and was unsuccessful
he then asked Progress Energy to
issue another check for $4,500 made
payable to the Gadsden County
Chamber of Commerce," Clary
wrote.
David Gardner, executive director
of the Chamber of Commerce, said
Dixon asked him to accept the check
as a favor because, according to
Dixon, Progress Energy had to make
the check p.;i\blc to a. nr-r.-profit
OrXa,-z-/,Li','ii l_-r t..\ rIej_-orf (i.tud-
per said he never questioned any
. iotives and sawa the Chamber o'ly"
as a pass through for the money. He
said he only saw it as a way to gain
favor with Dixon who has been crit-
ical of the Chamber over the years.
Gardner said he asked and got per-
mission from members of the Board
of Directors to pass the check
through the Chamber's bank
account:
"When the check came, I asked
him (Dixon) what he wanted me to
do with the check. He said I should
make the check out to Evans Con-
struction. That's who I made the
check out to and it was picked up. I
have all of the documentation here
because I had the man who picked it
up sign for it," Gardner said. Who,
or if, Dixon owes anyone has noth-
ing do to with the Chamber, accord-
ing to Gardner. He said he was sur-
prised when he first heard from
Clary about the money and was fur-
ther surprised when a copy of a bill
for $3,500 showed up in the mail.
These are the instances Clary out-
lined as ethics violations and the
reasons:
Progress Energy will soon- be
coming before the Board of County
Commissioners for approval to run
power lines in Greensboro.
The Gadsden Chamber of Com-
merce seeks funding annually from
the Board of County Commission-
ers. ,
Evans Development Construc-
tion, Inc. is before the Board of
County Commissioners every other
month requesting approval for sub-
divisions, etc., and has also com-
pleted work for the county to rehab
homes for senior citizens.
Attorney Thornton Williams was
a sponsor of the Nov. 27 event and
was named interim county attorney
(during the Jan. 4 meeting).
Attorney Williams wrote Clary a
letter on Dixon's behalf on Dec. 27.
"TheJetter basically informed me to
keep quiet and to not try to collect


any monies from Dixon."
In the meantime, Clary has filed a
report with the Quincy Police
Department and the entire matter is
under investigation.
Clary said she feels Dixon is try-
ing to use his power and influence as
a commissioner in the wrong way.
She said he took advantage of her
and her business and used what was
meant to be a positive event for the
citizens and turned it into something
that \\ would benefit him financially.
Clar% .aiid she only wants what is
owed to her. And she is prepared to
take it as far as she needs to go to get
the $3,500.

County but it requires work and
commitment.
"Parents too need coaching. I go
into the homes and I am able to go
into the home because I have been
there before, not just when little
Johnny acts a fool in school," he
said, urging ministers and others to
build a rapport with parents and
guardians.
Joyce Hobson of the Florida
Department of Education said the
state is committed to working with
schools like Gadsden that have low
performing schools. "We encourage
mentoring as well as working with
families. Rev. Scrubbs' program is
one of the programs backed by the
state," she said.
In the past two years alone,
Scrubbs estimated that his programs
have secured almost $150,000 in
government funding. Those funds,
he said, have helped lift the students
he serves in Lake County. He also
urged community leaders to partner
with businesses. Like Gadsden
County many of the children in Lake
County suffered from quality of life
issues that affect their self-esteem.
"We did something about it. We
have taken 'them to Disney World,
Busch Gardens, Sea World. This
year they have already been to two
Orlando Magic basketball games.
But they can only get to do those
things if they do what they are sup-
posed to do in the classroom and at
home," he emphasized.
Scrubbs said he would be back in
March to see if the workshops have
worked.
"All of this is very good. But I say
we must have high expectations of
our children. If we've done every-
thingwe thought we should, then
we're going to have to try harder.
Our children are walking around
with labels that will follow them
throughout life," Austin said.

The park is located next to the new

Juvenile


Continued from Page 1

Young has im' ited clergy from
throughout the county to juvenile
court'last week.
Most of them stood because there
were no seats. The courtroom was
packed to overflowing with juve-
niles accused of crimes ranging
from battery to .no valid driver
license.
"We have to do something," Young
said, "Or all of those in there are
going to end up at the jail."
There were 87 cases on the docket
to be addressed last Thursday in
what has become a typical day. Of
the 87 cases, juveniles committed
62, and some of them had multiple
cases pending. The judge accepted
guilty pleas and dispensed the cases
rapidly. Still, it took all morning and
into the early afternoon to finish.
"Do you have any trouble read-
ing?" Gary asked each of the defen-
dants. Once they were advised of
their rights and asked if they had
been promised anything if they
made a plea, he routinely sentenced
them to 100 hours community serv-
ice, ordered them to attend school
withno unexcused absences "When
I say go to school I mean that you
are to open up the book and partici-
pate. Do you hear me?" he asked in
a stern voice. "All right then, I don't
want to see you back in here and
good luck to you."
Last week, Judge Gary heard mis-
demeanor cases on 22 batteries, 11
petit ithfis. ti'.e 'trespassing on
school grounds, four disorderly con-
ducts, three each of possession of
less than 230 grams of marijuana
and disruption of educational insti-
tution and various other crimes.


Then there were the felony cases:
six grand theft, five aggravated bat-
tery with a deadly weapon, four bur-
glary of dwelling and various others
including battery of school
employee and battery on a law
enforcement officer.
"After hearing what some of our
children are doing, I'm hoping it
will get these ministers out of the
pulpit and into the community
where they might make a difference.
If they can't talk to the kids maybe
they will be able to reach the par-
ents. We cannot continue to go on
like this," Young said.
The ministers agreed that the prob-
lem should be addressed. Young's
statements and dire predictions for
the future were greeted with
"amens" and "that's right, brother."
Last year there were 325 juvenile
arrests made on 507 crimes commit-
ted. There were 235 felonies com-
mitted by juveniles and 255 misde-
meanors committed, and 17 juvenile
offenders were transferred into the
county. Overwhelmingly the offend-
ers were male (254) but statistics
show that youthful female offenders
are on the rise. Last year there were
71 juvenile female offenders
arrested in the county.
Part of the problem can be attrib-
uted, according to Young, to becom-
ing parents at an early age. "You can
see the result, of it right now," he
said, pointing to a mother and
daughter who looked more like sis-
ters. "Some of them are like sisters
and brothers. I would guess that a
few of them in there this morning
are only 12 or 13 years older than
their children," he said. "What can
they tell them, how can they steer
them in the right direction?"
Currently, the Gadsden
County Sheriff's Department has
only one program aimed at youth. It
is a truancy program and the goal is
to keep children in school. The the-
ory is that if they are in school they
are less likely to commit crimes.
Young wants to reinstitute the Civil
Citation Program which is an inter-
vention program that has been suc-
cessful in changing the behavior of
first time offenders using a mix of
restitution, community service,
mentoring, referrals, and rewards.
"I would like to see Teen
Court, Neighborhood Crime Watch,
Teen Parenting, Substance Abuse
Programs, and a Teen Explorer Pro-
gram in our county. All of these type
programs;,help O!l iu'. ciilc'-,"he

cost big buck. c\ iin '.i h volunteers.
Young said he will look to the state
and federal government for grants to
get the prevention and intervention
programs started. "We are commit-
ted to developing programs to help
our juveniles. If we don't they are
going to end up with me at the jail.
That's what I told those ministers
when I gave them a tour of the jail,"
he said.


Grandmother


Continued from Page 1

near tears.
The boys belong to her daughter.
She was killed in an accident in
1991. She was 22 years old. The
14-year-old was nine months old
when his mother died, he only
knows what he has been told. Yet
he has \% riuten poem after poem to
his mother telling her that he
misses her face and he wonders


why she is dead and he is alive.
Last week he was facing the judge
for breaking into the home of a
neighbor earlier this summer.
"He won't hurt anyone. He
just destroys property. This last
time he went into a house across
the street and emptied the freezer of
food and scattered it all over the
porch. Last year he went into
another neighbor's house and
poured bleach in the computer key-
board, dish detergent and other
things all over the furniture in the
living room and bedroom," she
said. He told his grandmother that
he wasn't angry or upset with either
one of the neighbors and that he
"just did it." Her fear is that his
behavior will escalate into violence
toward people.
The acting out, as she calls it,
started when he was three years
old. Since then he has been in and
out of school detention; in and out
of court, and was sentenced to a
stint at a wilderness camp near Pen-
sacola. Just recently he was put on
Prozac. "That's the only thing that
seems to help," she said, although
she would prefer an alternative to
drugs.
The boys have never had coun-
seling. "When it happened they
were so small. I was divorced and
still raising my other children. No, I
didn't get any counseling for them,
I probably should have. The chil-
dren have different fathers and
none of them is in his boy's life.
The 14-year-old's father pleaded
guilty to involuntary manslaughter
in the death of his mother and will
be in the Department of Corrections
until 2013, according to the grand-


mother. They write to each other
occasionally, but that is the extent
of the relationship. There is no con-
tact with the grandparents.
"I think they need a male in their
lives. I've been trying to get a men-
tor for them, but I don't know any-
one. I'm the grandmother. I can't
talk to them about sports and
explain life and girls to them the
way a male could," she said. She
has done her best to raise the fast
growing boys on a meager salary.
Sometimes her paycheck is cut
short because of the hours she must
leave her job to check on the 14-
year-old at school.
"They call me because he will
walk out of the classroom. Run
around the building yelling profan-
ity towards teachers for no reason,"
she said. "It's embarrassing, but
more than that I hurt for my grand-
child because I don't know how to
help him."
I don't make enough money to
give them what a lot of other chil-
dren have, but I do the best I can on
what I make," she said. With $91
worth of food stamps per month,
she has been able to put more food
on the table for the three growing
boys. The kindnesses of strangers,
her pastor, and sometimes co-work-
ers help her make it through.
Right now, she said she needs a
vacation because she hasn't had
one in two or three years. "I have
had to use my vacation time going
to the school and going to court.
Sometimes I cry for a long time
and it (the release) lasts for a
while," she said.
She has to be back in court again
on January 27.

It seems like the entire community of Colquitt, GA takes the stage at one time or another dur
the state's official folk life play, "Swamp Gravy".


Colquitt dishes up second serving


of folk life play 'Swamp Gravy'


Another helping of Swamp Gravy: Down at the Depot
Get your freight together and get to Colquitt to experi-
ence this years addition of "Swamp Gravy," Georgia's
Official Folk Life Play.
The Colquitt Miller Arts Council is pleased to open the
doors to Cotton Hall on March 3 for the spring season
subtitled "Down 'at the Depot." Swamp Gravy is a play
that is sure to entertain as we tell you stories that focus
on Colquitt's own train depot.
Among others, you will follow two young men who
"hop a freight" who were going on a short train ride, but
end up "accidentally" traveling all over south Georgia.
Along the way you will meet many other interesting
characters who explore the role the railroad once played
in the lives of those living in rural southwest Georgia.
Now in its twelfth year, "Swamp Gravy" has received
critical and national acclaim for creating a new genre of
theatre -Community Performance.
Each year stories are collected from the residents of
Miller County and the surrounding area. Using a unique
from of "theatrical storytelling" that has become the
hallmark of "Swamp Gravy," local playwright Debra
Jones puts the stories in script form.
Through the stories and events from local history, each
play explores universal themes such as family, commu-


nity, love and death. Audiences, young and old, love
show's "down home" Southern brand of humor, w
critics have praised the show for not shying away f
darker themes such as racism and domestic violence
"Swamp Gravy" has also become famous for
music-a unique blend of traditional favorites and o
inal new songs especially written for each show by
ious local artists.
The musical score features uniquely Southern mus
influences, such as Gospel, Negro Spirituals, I
Grass, Folk, Country, Blues and Jazz.
The show's cast of over 80 is made up of volunt
from the local communities, acting under the direc
of theatrical professional directors, musicians, chor
raphers, lighting designers, and stage managers
are brought in from across the United States. S
"Swamp Gravy" features stories from local hist
often the volunteer cast members end up portra:
friends, relatives, and other characters from their pa
In recent years, "Swamp Gravy" has been prese
for the Vice President at Washington, D.C. Kenne
Center and at the Olympic Games in Atlanta. The s
has been featured in such national publications as "I
Today," "Southern Living," "Drama Review"
"American Theatre."

The Full Monty

makes debut at

Civic Center
The Tallahassee-Leon County
Civic Center is pleased to announce
that The Full Monty, Broadway's
smash hit musical, will make its
debut for two days only at the civic
center Monday, Jan. 24 and Tues-
day, Jan. 25 at 7:30 p.m.
The Full Monty is the raucous and
heartfelt story of six unemployed
steelworkers who go to great
lengths to make some cash and help
out a friend in trouble. When a local
male strip show whose dancers
venture down to their G-strings is
a hit with the local women, the
cash-strapped factory workers fig-
ure they can cash in big time if they
go the full Monty.
ing The show is about friendship, and
about being a parent. It's also about
an image-obsessed society that says
you have to look like Brad Pitt. This
show says quite the opposite. It cel-
ebrates everybody for exactly who
they are.
Tickets are on sale now at the

CCA offers inmates, their

families faith based program
Corrections Corporation of America (CCA),
the nation's largest provider of corrections
management services to government, has ex-
tended its commitment to faith-based pro-
gramming for inmates by partnering with two
national faith organizations Child Evange-
lism Fellowship (CEF) and School of Christ
International (SCI)- to help reduce the gener-
ational cycle of crime.
CCA has initially introduced these new faith
programs at 15 CCA facilities. Plans already
are underway to implement the program at all
of CCA's more than 60 facilities within the
next 12 months.
CEF, the world's largest mission agency
ministering to children, is collaborating with
CCA to develop and implement a correspon-
dence faith program tailored for inmates and
their children. The alliance with CCA is
CEF's first major introduction on a broad


scale into the corrections system. CEF has
plans to introduce these newly-crafted faith
materials within other corrections systems as
well. To date, over 35,000 curriculum packets,
in both English and Spanish, introducing the
program have been distributed at CCA facili-
ties in eight states. Inmates voluntarily sign up
to receive weekly lesson plans and devotional
books created by CEF. With the permission of
the parent or guardian, age-appropriate mate-
rial may also be sent by the CEF ministry to
the inmates' children on a weekly basis. All
correspondence is provided free of charge and
distributed by mail. CCA is also making
available to CCA correctional staff and their
children CEF's existing correspondence faith
program for the general public.
A recent Child Evangelism Fellowship study
found that children of prisoners are seven
times more likely to end up in prison them-
selves than other children from the same envi-
ronment. With more than 2 million prisoners
in America, it is estimated that more than 6


million children are currently at risk.
Dennis Smith, chaplain at CCA's Metro-
Davidson County Detention Facility in
Nashville, Tenn., implemented the CEF pro-
gram in December 2004 and received an over-
whelming response.
"The Child Evangelism Fellowship program
is something the inmates can do for their chil-
dren when they have no money and can't send
them anything," Smith said. "They can enroll
their children in the CEF program, enabling
their children to receive materials that hope-
fully will enrich their lives."
CEF pamphlets initially have been provided
to inmates in various CCA facilities in Texas,
Florida, Oklahoma, Georgia, Mississippi, Ten-
nessee and New Mexico.
School of Christ International is an interna-
tionally-known organization that provides
Bible study programs for prisons and jails in
the United States, Russia, Africa and South
America. SCI is providing all CCA prisons a
comprehensive 155-lesson Bible study pro-

African Americans and the Civil Rights Movement. The students also did a poem which spelled out D-
R. M-A-R-T-I-N L-U-T-H-E-R K-I-N-G, J-R. Each letter honored Dr. King and his dream of equality
