Unusual, they say,
for city to get so

by BYRON SPIRES

For two hours Tuesday night
Quincy city commissioners
meticulously looked over the
2002-2003 audit.
The past-due
audit which was
due October 1,
2003 was pre-
sented by the
city's audit firm
of Watson and
Rice. Ron
Thompson, repre-
senting Watson
and Rice,
explained much

commissioners
and said that the
audit itself was

that the firm was

Thompson said that it was cus-
tomary for cities to receive less
than 50 percent of their revenues
from enterprise activities.
Commissioner Keith Dowdell
asked why the audit report
showed the city's expenditures
exceeded revenues.
Thompson explained that in

city's bills that money had to be

Gadsden schools


gear up for FCAT


the Year Kim Mooney and St. John Elementary Prin-
es Ray.


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

Schools throughout the district
are gearing up for the Florida
Comprehensive Assessment Test
(FCAT) and last Thursday morn-
ing was show-and-tell time as
each school principal shared
with their counterparts what they
were doing to help students pass
the test.
At West Gadsden Pauline Gunn
said they are doing everything
they can to get parents to come
to the campus. Last week they
hosted a dinner for parents. West
Gadsden did the same thing sev-
eral weeks ago just prior to Open
House to get parents to partici-
pate more in the educational
process.


After-school study sessions,
extra computer time, tutors, and
Saturday school are a few of the
ideas principals and teachers are
using as strategies to give stu-
dents a little extra help to get
over the FCAT hurdle.
At Havana Middle, Dr. Verna
Norris, .said her students who
pass the FCAT can write an
essay of what they want as
incentives. Students who are not
so highly motivated and tend to
be disruptive are sent to in-
school suspension and given
extra attention.
Almost weekly, the HMS stu-
dents and faculty get a 'little
something' surprise to keep the
morale up and to let the teachers
know they are appreciated.

Young gives jail a facelift


Robert Barkley retires


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

There's a television show on
House and Garden network called
"Debbie Travis' Painted House".
The woman who hosts the show
has a British accent and can work
wonders with a can of paint.
Gadsden County Sheriff Morris
Young is sprucing up the digs for
his guests at the county jail. Last
week, Major James Morgan and
Lt. Mary Ivory showed off the
newly painted cells featuring sky
blue walls with battleship gray
floors. And just like on HGTV, the
people who live in the homes get
to help. "This was all done with


inmate labor," beamed Morgan,
"this was all volunteers and they
did a fantastic job," he said.
The labor might be free, but so
far taxpayers have paid more than
$1,000 for paint for the three pods
and three holding cells that have
been completed. There are six
more pods and that bill could
reach another $2,000 or more.
Morgan thinks that in another
three weeks all of the pods will be
painted and the guests can enjoy
the serene and calming blue walls
as they watch television and wait
for meals to be served.
Welcome to "Morris Young's
Painted House."

paperwork at the newly painted jail.

QPD answers "parents worst nightmare"


by BYRON SPIRES
Times Staff Writer

It is every parent's worst night-
mare.
To have their child disappear.
A recent "Amber Alert" helped
locate an eleven-year-old boy who
was taken from a Dunnellon Ele-
mentary school here in Florida.
The boy was recognized by
someone who had seen the alert
broadcast on television in the
Northwest Georgia area and he
was returned to his family.
His kidnapper, a convicted child
molester, was apprehended later
and is now awaiting trial.
The whole ordeal started and
ended within a 48-hour period of
time.
What would have happened
had the alert not gone out and the
boy not been recognized? No one
can say for sure, but the longer a
child is missing the harder it is for
law enforcement to find them.
It is a national problem that
crosses all boundaries of race,
creed, sex and socioeconomic sta-
tus. A child is reported missing
every 40 seconds in the United
States.
Every day, nearly 3,000 chil-
dren. and elderly are reported miss-
ing.


Time, as law enforcement
authorities will tell you, is the
most important factor in returning
a missing child safely.
The first few hours are crucial
and that is why Quincy Police
Chief Gerald McSwain has
installed the new "A Child is
Missing" program.
"It is another tool we can us to
help us recover missing children
and elderly," McSwain said.
A Child is Missing, a non-profit
organization, was started in 1997
to provide law enforcement a first
responder program.
The program is put into action
once it is determined that a child
or elderly person is missing or
abducted, McSwain said.
Once the program is put into
effect the following steps are
taken by the police department:
An officer will call A Child is
Missing, which operates a call
center 24 hours a day seven days a
week.
The officer gives the operator
all of the pertinent information
concerning the missing child
including a description, clothes
they were wearing and the time
and place they were last seen.
An ACIM technician records
an individual alert message con-.
taining the information about the


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

Robert Barkley, a veteran law
enforcement officer and 2004
candidate for sheriff has retired.
Sheriff Morris Young said Mon-
day he accepted Barkley's
retirement request, effective
immediately. Barkley, who held
the rank of captain, was the
department's truancy officer and
supervised school resource offi-
cers. In a letter dated January
26, 2005, Barkley said it had
been a pleasure working in law
enforcement, but that he had
made a decision to retire. Young
said Barkley will be replaced by
officer Ed McWhite.
Before joining the sheriff's


department six years ago,
Barkley was a City of Quincy
police officer for 23 years, ris-
ing to the rank of assistant
chief. He also served as chief
for a short period.
"I've had a good career in
law enforcement, but there
comes a time when you have to
move on," he said.
Barkley said he will devote
his time to the company of
which he is president, Barkley
Security. The company employ-
ees more than 300 people
statewide and most recently
landed a very lucrative contact
to provide security for many of
the activities surrounding Super
Bowl 39 in Jacksonville this
week.

child. Within 15 minutes of
receiving the call from a law
enforcement officer the informa-
tion will be phoned around the
area where the child was last seen
with a computer-generated high
tech telephone system. R e s i -
dents who receive the calls are
encouraged during the recorded
message to call the police depart-
ment if they have any information
about the missing child.
The system can place up to
1,000 calls in 60 seconds. The
calls will be made to all residents
and businesses in the area near
where the child was last seen,
McSwain said. However he added
that residents with unlisted num-
bers will not be called.
According io CIM there have


7W


been 81 successful recoveries in
the past 35 months credited to
ACIM. The average recovery time
has been about 90 minutes from:
the time the alert call was placed.
No special equipment is
required by the police department
and several QPD officers attended
a seminar on the program last Sat-
urday at the police annex in west
Quincy, McSwain said.
A Child is Missing is now in
place at the QPD and ready in case
it is needed.
The program was actually used
this past weekend when a child
went missing from the parents'

On phone calls and homeless children


Good things can sometimes
go bad. This past week was a
good example of something
that ought to be good just does-
n't quite make it in my book.
I'll start with the most
recent. Sunday morning at
12:15 my telephone rang. It
was a recording saying that a
13-year-old Quincy juvenile
had been reported missing last
Thursday and that he might be
in my neighborhood. It went on
to say that if I saw this child, I
was to call the Quincy police
department and provided the
number. After looking at the
receiver in disbelief for several
seconds, I called the police
department and it wasn't to tell
them that I had seen this child.
When I complained to the
woman on the other end, she
said to-me an a voice (that
sounded as if she was scolding
me), "Wouldn't you want
somebody to call if your child
was missing?"
"Well," I said, "My child
isn't missing and I certainly
wouldn't be randomly calling
private homes after midnight."
She explained that the calls did
not originate in Quincy.
Monday morning Chief Ger-
aid McSwain said the calls are
"sort of" like the Amber Alert
'(where they flash information


along strategic highways when
a child is missing) in that a
company using the automatic
dialing system receives infor-
mation for local departments
and can make up to 1,000 calls
per minute in the area where
the child was last seen.
That's fine, but do they have
to call in the middle of the
night? And, how do they
decide who to call in the early
morning hours and who to call
at what I call a decent hour.


Last year in Gadsden

County, 60 children were

identified as homeless.

This year there are 700

plus homeless children in

among us.

By the way, I did a little
checking and the boy who was
reported missing Thursday was
seen at school Friday.
The other incident which
caused me to pause was a little
thing the state has called a
homeless initiative. It's part.of
the national "No Child Left
Behind" program started by the
Bush Administration. Appar-


ently, this is how it works. A
child who does not live with
his or her parents) is consid-
ered homeless. They could live
with a grandparent in a man-
sion by the sea with servants
all around, but the little tyke is
homeless according to the
rules.
Last year in Gadsden
County, 60 children were iden-
tified as homeless. This year
there are 700 plus homeless
children in among us. Go fig-
ure. The person in charge of
the program said this is good
because the money can be used
to buy clothes, take kids to the
dentist and some other things
on the list.
On inspection and asking a
few questions, this is probably
a good program. My problem
is the negative label that has
been hung around the necks of
,these children. When you think
of homeless, you think of dere-
licts, people in unclean shel-
ters, and it conjures up the
images of city people living on
sidewalks with cardboard
boxes for shelter. Rightly or
wrongly, that is what most see
when they hear homeless.
They say the children who
are a part of this program will
never know they have been
labeled and that other students
won't know either. I wouldn't
bet on it. I would bet on the
fact that everyone in the ,school
will know sooner or later
who's in the program and some
child is going to feel a little
smaller becaIus of it.
It's true what they say about
the road to hell...it's paved
with good intentions.

Just a thought about growth


I guess you need to go out-
side of Gadsden County some-
times and take a look around to
see what is really going on in
the real world.
Yes, the real world.
I visited with my son Bob
and daughter-in-law Amy over
the Christmas holidays. They
live in Athens, Georgia.
Oh, I had a great time visit-
ing with them for a few days,
but that's not what I'm going to
write about. I want to tell you
about what I saw happening in
the Northeast Georgia area.
It's growing.
Especially some of the
smaller rural counties.
No surprise in that, I mean an
hour from Atlanta what do you
expect? But, there is more to it
than just the nearness to Atlanta.
There is industry and a lot of
it. As a matter of fact there are
industrial parks nearly every-
where you turn.
Something else is everywhere
you turn: housing develop-
ments.
Imagine my surprise when I
see dozens of subdivisions with
signs bragging about houses
starting in the low $200,000.
One sign said proudly in big
bold letters, "houses from
$200,000 to $700,0l'."
Let me say this to help clar-
ify something. This is not the
first time I've been to this par-


ticular part of Georgia. I've
been through there several
dozen times in the past fifteen
years and they were just what I
said earlier, with the exception
of maybe Clark (Athens)
county. What I'm telling you
about now has just cropped up
in the past four or five years.
So, like the chicken and the
egg, which came first, the
industry or the housing develop-
ments.
I can tell you, the housing
developments came first, not the
industry.
Surprised? Well you should-
n't be. It is what I call the posi-
tive spiraling effect.
Instead of spiraling down
after a community loses its agri-
cultural base, those counties
have had the exact opposite
happen. It may be by accident
or it could have been planned, it
doesn't matter, what matters
however is that they are now
becoming industrialized.
The growth in the housing
development for that area
brought in the industry.
How can that be, you might
say?
Think about it for a minute.
Those people running from
the hustle and bustle of the big
city needed a simpler place to
live.
It's hard to understand, but a
$200,000 home is still cheaper


Than most of the housing in the
N letro Atlanta area and in most
i ca;se a lot more house for your
Sbucks. And you get a yard for
! SOui kids to play in to boot.
Then the booster happens, the
Industry follows.
We have a very similar situa-
tion happening right here in
Gadsden County. That's right, in
spite of what you think or have
been led to believe, we're grow-
ing.
Is it going to be like other
places, probably not real soon,
but it will happen.
Sure there is a handful of
people that would like to stifle
growth and hold us back, but we
got one thing in our favor, that
even they can't stop.
A simple little number.
Forty-nine percent of Gads-
den County's work force works
in Leon County.
Many of those people would
love to stop that aggravating
drive every day and work closer
to home.
The candle has been lit and
the end of the tunnel is not as
far away as it once was.
Take a drive into the eastern
side of the county and you'll see
what I'm talking about.
If you have a little time stop
in Midway you may be sur-
prised at what you will see.
While I've got your attention
let me say one more thing:
Our political structure has
bogged down to a near stop.
There is a lot of rhetoric out
there with very little substance.
The train to the future is
leaving the station and I'm
afraid most of our politicians
are going to be left behind.
Maybe it is time to produce--
and not talk about it.


Crist requests federal files on civil rights murders Letters to the Editor

1951 bombing of activist home in AMims, Florida to be reopened


Ci'il nights pioneer Harry T.
Moore and his \itfe Harriette
werebrutallh murdered on
December 25. 1951 b\ a bomb
exploded under the bedroom of
their home in NMims., Flonda. To
this day the people responsible
for these crimes have not been
identified. A federal investigation
at the time and subsequent inves-
ligations b\ county and state
authorities have been
inconclusive.

Inurders of these earl\ ci il rights
Workers or be assured that ever
possible effort has been made to
do so. Recent breakthroughs in
other ci il rights murders of the
1950s and 1960s. such as those of
the Freedom Riders of Nlissis-
sippi and the Alabama Church
bombings. have stirred public
hope for a solution of the Moore
murders.
In December. 2004 I opened a
ne\ investigation in hopes that
the passage of time and fresh eN es
ma\ reveal information that \will
identify the murderers.
From 1951 to 1955 the Federal
Bureau of Investigation con-
ducted an extensive investigation
of the bombing and murders. It
examined ph sical e idence,
interx iewed people, and reviewed
documents. Over the years the
FBI has also assisted other
authorities w ith follow, up
inquiries. In the 1950s, Depart-
ment of Justice Prosecutors and a
Grand Jury also in estimated the
crimes and other possibly related
incidents.
While the investigations dtd
not result in identification of an
indi idual or individuals to prose-
dute for the murders, six individu-
als %were indicted for perjury.
Those indi\ iduals are T. J.


McNlennamy, \illiam J. Bogar.
Hartey S. Reisner. Earnest Glenn
Morton. Robert L. Judah. and
Emmett I. Hart. Sr. A court dis-
nissed the charges because the
Moore murders were not classi-
fled as a federal crime at the time.

Road problems


Dear Editor,
Did anyone else know it is tak-
ing the County Road and Bridge
folks the better part of a year to
pave Hardaway Road II? That is
,of course, except us the Hard-
away Road II community. I was
so happy to see the little markers
that the department puts out to
designate the paved road. Where
is the paved road? A neighbor
was told the road would be paved
in January. Other roads have
already'been started before this
road is even near completion!
Hardaway Road II was started
this past summer. I was told by
the middle of October, it should
be a done deal. Not!
Here it is December and there
is red clay sloppier than raw egg
to try to drive through. Oh yes, I
have called the county commis-
sioner and called the road depart-
ment many times about this. I
know the first names of many. I
even phoned the county attor-
ney's office to see if he would
help.
As I write this to not only vent
but ask you other Gadsden
County Tax Payers, how much
more do I take?? You see, my
son's life is important to us. He
has to be able to get up and down
the road safely to get to the.doc-


tor [monthly visits] and essential
medical supplies for his care are
delivered by U.P.S./Option Care.
When the driver could not reach
us the week of Thanksgiving to
deliver catheter kits because he
slid backwards.... I really started
to complain.
And even a working dump
truck slid down the hill! It is
imperative that this be either fin-
ished OR fix the road so it is safe
to pass. Safe passage on a, county
maintained road.....Is something
wrong with the picture? Oh, some
of you readers are probably think-
ing that this is an exaggeration on
my part. Well, come on out to
Hardaway where there is plenty
of mud for a "bog-in".


Up to date complaint: now it is
the end of January. The county
attorney has quit..The county
manager was fired. And the
county commissioner for my area
seems to disregard my calls. Oh,
what is a person to do?
Writing the first editorial
helped me to "vent" so to speak.
But now February is upon us
soon and still no paved road.
Calling the road department has
gotten us nowhere. Yesterday, I
was told the county was waiting
for the paving company. Wonder
what is going on...seven months
of work to pave one road.

'Farms' says no to 'affordable' houses, septics


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

The Homeowners' Association of The
Farms at Quincy is sure of one thing. They
do not want 161 "affordable homes" with as
many septic tanks in their back yards. Tues-
day night during the regular meeting of the
Board of County Commissioners the issue
came to the floor for a Comprehensive Plan
Amendment for Williams/High Hope
Farms.
"What will you do with so much waste-
water? You could have your own facility.
The City of Gretna can't handle it (with


what they currently have). The only other
alternative is septic tanks. Some of the resi-
dents in the area use well water. What
impact would that have on the neighboring
home owners?" John Due asked.
His wife, Patricia Due representing the
homeowners association, said the group is
concerned about so many septic tanks, the
traffic that many homes will bring to the
area which is served by three two-lane
roads: Glory Road, Solomon Dairy Road,
and Shade Farm Road. "With that many
homes, what about schools? I keep hearing
you people talk about affordable housing.
'What is affordable housing anyway and how


much does one cost?" she said. Due said
while she was born here she is not coming
back to the quiet life she thought she would
have on her return. For one thing, she said
she enjoyed rustic Timmons Road with the
red clay. Now, she said, the road has been
paved and there are only two people who
live on the road. Commissioner Sterling
Watson said the road is a connector road.
Clarence Lewis, former mayor and coun-
cilman in Gretna, said if the developers
wanted to do what was right they would
have tried to reach an agreement effort with
the City of Gretna to improve their waste-
water treatment plant to accommodate the


161 homes and not put that many septic
tanks near Gretna.
"Gretna has a high water table. If you're
talking about placing that many units, there
should have been some conversations with
Gretna about the impact. We're already
having health problems out there and you
want to do something like that. We don't
need anybody else's problems," Lewis said.
In a written response prepared by Michael
Sherman, Williams/High Hope responded to
the suggestion of partnering with Gretna this
way scenarios 1,2, and 3 respectively:
* Because of the very large cost of repairs to
the Gretna facility, and recommendation


from the Florid Department of Environmen-
tal Protection permitting office, High Hope
Farms does not plan to utilize the Gretna
facility.
* Because of the very large cost of construc-
tion, operation and maintenance of an on-
site facility High Hope Farm does not pla,
and will not (built and self contained unit).
* Septic tanks have been chosen as the pre-
ferred way of wastewater treatment.
The county manager and the planning con-
sultant will make a recommendation to the
Board of County Commissioners at the next
meeting.


Gretna hires Bogan to oversee finances for nine months


by BYRON SPIRES
Times Staff Writer
Bill Bogan Jr. is now officially the
City of Gretna's interim financial
director.
Bogan's contract was unanimously
approved by commissioners Tues-
day night. He received a nine month
contract for $15,000 to oversee the
city's financial business.
His first order was to bring the
city's audits up to date. Gretna is
currently not receiving some of its
state revenue money because of
delinquent city audits. The audits
are due for the 2002-2003 year and


the 2003-2004 year.
To the pleasure of the commis-
sioners Bogan said they could
expect the 2002-03 audits in the next
six to eight weeks.
The past-due audits were involved
in another issue before the board as
well: A grant to refurbish the city's
Lake Park is at stake.
$52,000 worth of work done by
Auburn Ford and Associates is now
on hold.
The work which Ford stopped
because he has not been paid was 90
percent complete when the state put
a hold on the grant money. The


catch-22 came when it was deter-
mined that the time period for the
grants also expired in November.
Interim city manager Diane Form-
man said that because of an exten-
sion the city could draw on the grant
until February 25. The question,
again, is can the audit be completed
and sent to the state in time to meet
the 25th deadline.
There was no discussion as to what
to do in the event the city is unable
to obtain the grant money.
In a related matter the commis-
sioners heard from Formman that
the city's CDBG block grant had


Monday set to raise AIDS awareness


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

Across the country Monday, Feb.
7, will be observed as National
HIV/AIDS Awareness Day 2005. In
Gadsden County the day will be
observed through sharing informa-
tion and urging Blacks to get tested
and know the status of their health.
Keith Blocker, Gadsden County's
HIV/AIDS health educator, is ask-
ing all churches and businesses to
use their marquees to call attention
to the problem.
S"We have seven HIV/AIDS 101
video tapes that the community can


borrow. I also want to remind the
community that there are commu-
nity agencies that provide risk
reduction, care and treatment and
support groups in the county,"
Blocker said. He added that there
are a lot of services in the county to
help people learn more about the
disease.
Blocker said he can also provide
training for organizations and
groups who want to use their num-
bers to reach more people in the
community with the message of pre-
vention.
"There are a number of initiatives
that have been put into place to help


educate people," he said. For more
information, call Blocker at 875-
8794.

been recalled and the city would
have to return money they were
holding ($19,000) for that grant.
Formman said that the Florida
Department of Community Affairs
requested that the city stop all of the


CDBG activity.
The grant for $650,000 was origi-
nally set to refurbish 21 local
homes. According to Formman 14
homes had been finished leaving
seven that were not started. An audit


of the grant would occur over the
next few weeks according to Form-
man.
She also added that Gretna would
be out of the grant cycle for
"awhile."

Dyer named Executive Presbyter for Presbytery of Florida


"I will take what I have learned here and broaden


it.


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

For years in Quincy or the county if
you needed to make something happen
for someone who was in need and you
needed to make it happen quickly, the
person to call was Terry Dyer.
For the past 23 years he has been
pastor of the First Presbyterian Church.
If he couldn't do it, he would gladly
make the telephone calls necessary to
get the emergency shelter, money,
food, clothes to the person in need.
His hands and heart have been
involved in The Refuge House, Hos-
pice, the community food bank and
clothes closet, and missions at home
and abroad.
Dyer will deliver his last sermon to
the congregation that has become his
family on Feb. 13.
Church members held a reception in
his honor Sunday afternoon in the
church's fellowship Hall in his honor.
March 1 he will embark on a new
job that will keep him in contact with
the local church, but he will no longer
be allowed to perform such duties as
weddings, funerals, and counseling to
the members.
Dyer has been named the Executive

Beulah Hill's 2005
Black History program
On Sunday, Feb. 13 at 3 p.m.,
Beulah Hill Missionary Baptist
Church in Gretna will hold its
2005 Black History Month pro-
gram. The Honorable Nikki
Clark, Leon County judge, will
serve as the keynote speaker for
this event.
"We are honored to have a
person of Judge Clark's stature
to serve as our Black History
Month speaker," stated Rev.
Matthew M. Carter II, pastor of
Beulah Hill. "She has a history
of outstanding achievements and
significant professional accom-
plishments that make her one of
the true quality role models for
every child in America to emu-
late."
Beulah Hill will also provide
displays of historic antiques and
rare artifacts that chronicle the
African experience in America.
The program is open and free to
the public, and the community is
invited.


Presbyter for the Presbytery of Florida.
As such, he will be in charge of 48
Presbyterian churches between Pen-
sacola and Madison.
In a January 6 letter to the congrega-
tion, Dyer said, "After a great deal of
prayer, soul searching, and much con-
sul from trusted friends I realized that
God was leading me to another form of
ministry."
"I can never begin to convey how
much you have meant to me as a Pas-
tor and a friend. You have shaped not
only my life but also the life of my
family in ways that are beyond words,"
he wrote.
"We're just heartsick over his leav-
ing," said Wendy O'Brien, interim
office manager. "But we're happy that
who they're getting comes from us."
Dyer said he will miss the friendli-
ness of the people here and the family
atmosphere in Quincy.
"Everybody accepts everybody for
who and what they are. This is a very
relaxed and peaceful community," he
said, adding, "I will take what I have
learned here and broaden it."
Dyer was born and raised in Wiscon-
sin. At the age of nine his parents
moved to Tangerine, a little town just
out of Orlando. He graduated from Mt.


Dora High and attended Western Car-
olina University before graduating
from Florida State University and later
Columbus Theological Seminary.
"But this will always be,home. I've
spent more time here than I have any-
where else," he said. The twins, Sara
and McCall were four when we came
here and Adam was born here.
The children are all grown up now
and have lives of their own. Last year,
Dyer said, he divided up some of the
furniture, pieces he knew they'd would
like to keep.
Still, he says that living is one place
23 years can accumulate a lot of clut-
ter. He'll be moving to a much smaller
apartment in Panama City and says he
has begun packing up
Leaving brings back fond and funny
memories. Like his first day in the pul-
pit.
"I was getting ready and I guess I
must have been nervous when I got up
to speak and looked down I had on a
brown shoe and a black shoe," he said,
And a particular source of fun was
the practical jokes he could count on at
every Men's Choir Day.
"All of the men sing together one
Sunday each year. I recall once I

ITS TIME FORACHANGE
Thank you, Lord for another being .able to rise with
thanksgiving in our heart. We realize or should realize today
is the beginning of the rest of our life. We should make
Jesus our choice.
Dear Lord, help us begin to accept Jesus as our Valentine
since we know he loves us all. Dear Lord, please teach us
to let you be our Valentine for the rest of our life. We need
to let Jesus be Lord of our life it's time for a change. We
had a lot of problems in 2004 so now we need to realize we
can accept the problem-solver for 2005. His name is Jesus. Christ is the answer to all
problems. St. John 11: Mary and Martha thought Jesus was late when their brother
Lazarus died but they found out Jesus is never late. We need to learn to put our trust
in Him. Trust in the Lord with all thy heart and lean not unto thine own understanding.
In all thy ways acknowledge him and he will direct thy path. We don't need to wait
for Valentine's Day to show love. Jesus said, My command is this, love each other as
I have loved you. John 15:12 KJV. Be devoted to one another in brotherly love. Honor
one another above yourselves. Romans 12:10 Pray for a change of heart in 2005. St.
John 4: The Samaritan woman after a change of mind and heart went back and
brought the people from the city to see the man 'that told me everything I and you did'
was only one thing, that was sin. If she could bring a city suppose we as individuals
bring one sinner to Jesus-how many souls would be won for Christ. Jesus is the crime
stopper. He has dealt to every man a measure of faith. If we will it, it will still work. It's
time to be revived and seek after the lost. We find sometimes it's right where we are.
Jesus, please be our Valentine for the rest of our lives. Thank you, Amen. It's time for
a change.
Evangelist Florence M. Bradwell

Over the years we've found our Bridal Registry Service to be one of the most
appreciated of all the services we offer our customers. It makes it easy for you to
select the perfect wedding or shower gift because you know it's exactly what the
bride is looking for.
The engaged couple registers their preferences in china, crystal, flatware and
giftware. We record this and update the list as gifts are purchased to avoid
duplicates.
Visit us the next time you're shopping for wedding or shower gifts. We'll help you
select a gift the bride really wants. We'll even gift-wrap it. And the service is free!

Have you been trying to improve your health
through fitness or by eating healthier, but can't
seem to find the time or the motivation? You
should know about Sisters Together: Move More,
Eat Better, a new program that is starting in your
community.

Sisters Together is a local program designed to
raise awareness among Black women about the
benefits of increased physical activity and health-
ier eating habits. Research indicates that as a
group, Black women are most likely to become


overweight, which can lead to health problems including diabetes, heart disease,
high blood pressure, high cholesterol levels, and certain types of cancer.

Sisters Together organizes community activities and events throughout the year,
such as walking groups and cooking demonstrations, to spread the "Move More,
Eat Better" message to the community. The program also provides educational
materials on a variety of topics including physical activity, nutrition, and hair care
for active Black women.


Sister Together needs volunteers to
participate in and lead walking groups.


To find out how you can join a walking group
or get involved in other activities,contact

Audit
Continued from Page 1
property taxes.
"It is taking more enterprise
money \every year to subsidize
the general fund," Thompson
said.
One of the problems that held
up the audit was the reconcilia-
tions among departments con-
cerning budget items. He
referred to the issue as "Due To
Sand Due From". He said for audit
:purposes it was done, but he was
concerned that it was an ongoing
,problem.
Another issue was the amount
of money the city has as uncol-
lectables. Since 1980 the city has
accumulated $859,374 of uncol-
lectable accounts.
That comment ignited a torrent
-of comments from commission-
ers about how the city collects
delinquent utilities.
City financial director Neva
Reed said she had planned to
approach the commission about
writing off the debts that are now
reaching 23 years old.
The commissioners decided to
look into the issue further at a
later date.
One area that Thompson sug-
gested the city work on was the
reserve. According to Thompson
the city's reserve at the end of
Sept 2003 was $816,000.
Thompson said that the more you
have in the reserve fund balance
the healthier the city would be.
He recommended that the city try
to increase the reserve balance.
Mayor Derrick Elias wasn't
pleased with the outcome of the
audit commenting, "It is really
unacceptable."
However, the state requires the
audit be completed. The commis-
sioners accepted the audit, but
according to Elias there will be
workshops in the future to cor-
rect some of the problems with
the auditors' findings. Thompson
said that it was customary for the
city manager to pro\ ide ctel.om-
missioners wit; a correc~. e
action plan once the audits were
complete.
Elias also asked Thompson
about the 2003-2004 audit.
Thompson said that preliminary
work had already started and that
the audit should be completed by
May.

Chief


Continued from Page 1
ately approved by the manager.
However, according to Banks, a
complaint filed by .a firefighter
with the department may have
been the catalyst for the request.
Human Resources Director
Ann Sherman said she received a
complaint from the employee
alleging that on January 14 of
this year a citizen came to the fire


station and on the way out told
Griffiss to have a "nice weekend
and a happy Martin Luther King
holiday" .
When the citizen left, Griffiss
was overheard to say he didn't
know about a happy Martin
Luther King holiday, but that he
would have a good James Earl
Ray day. Ray was convicted of
the murder of King.
The African-American fire-
fighter who overheard Griffiss
make the comment filed a com-
plaint a week later.
Sherman investigated the com-
plaint and said Griffiss admitted
making a similar statement.
Griffiss was given a choice, he
could retire, resign,,,or be termi-
nated.
"He asked to retire because, he
said, the City had been through
enough turmoil and that he did
not want to go through anything
that might bring disharmony or
negative publicity to the city,"
Banks said.
The only other person in the
vicinity with Griffiss at the time
said she did not hear the remark.
Sherman said that Griffiss had
made it clear for several months
that he intended to retire in June
of this year and no later than
July. Last October was his 30th
year as a city employee.
"He will be accorded the same
things as any other 30 year
employee who retires. That
means the plaque, the gold watch
and the retirement reception if he
wants it," Sherman said.

FCAT
Continued from Page 1
"We celebrate birthdays, give
apples, that sort of thing," said
Norris before she burst into her
own rendition of a song she sings
to those deserving. "I'm so proud
of you. I hope you are proud of
you, too," she sang. And, to
make sure students are coming to
school, the school's parent liai-
son calls the parent of each child
\rho is absent.
At Carter-Parramore Academy
teachers are voluntarily giving
up planning periods to tutor stu-
dents. They are coming early and
staying late and lunch can easily
become an impromptu question
and answer period as teachers
ask questions their students need
to be able to answer for the
FCAT. One teacher, said Allyson
Davis, uses the time at the bus
stop to read to students.
At some schools, all parents in
a certain grade level meet in des-
ignated as opposed to the more
traditional overall parent's night
when all grade levels are
together. Other schools are mak-
ing-home visits and calls when
students do not come to school,"
said Misty Cash, the district's
public information officer.


She said that other schools are
using incentives such as a Stu-
dent Wall of Fame, Parent Honor
Roll, regular progress reports,
FCAT Explorer, teacher morale
incentives to create a healthier
classroom learning environment,
intensive remediation and
enrichment activities before and
after school.
Kevin Forehand of Crossroads
Academy said to build teacher
morale his school sponsored a
"shopping" trip to Biloxi, MS in
December. "When we came
back, they were very motivated,"
he said. And while the trip was
fun, Forehand said they are seri-
ous about the FCAT. "Each day
we have what we call the emer-
gency room for students to get
intensive enrichment and reme-
diation and it's really working,"
he said. Students at the school
are also assessed on a weekly
basis to monitor their progress.
A unique program the school
has instituted is the alumni pro-
gram. "Many of our alumni are
now students at East Gadsden
and they come back in the after-
noons to tutor the current stu-
dents," Forehand said.
"I appreciate all you're doing to
motivate the students for the
FCAT," said Superintendent
Reginald James. "I think the
schools are doing a good job and
going the extra mile to prepare
our kids for the FCAT," he said.
James asked principals to read
"Closing the Achievement Gap",
a book he recently read that gave
him ideas to help students. James
promised principals more help
by using resources from Florida
State University, Florida A & M
University and Tallahassee Com-
munity College. "TCC provides


students to work with our stu-
dents," he said. His plans are also
to increase the number of teacher
interns in schools.

learn. "She'll get personal with
you if she needs to," Yanez
added.
In addition to the award Leon
also received $750.
Leon will now be qualified to
compete as a state Teacher of the
Year finalist;
This year's School Related
Employee of the Year went to
Havana Elementary School's
office manager Velma Barkley.
Barkley is a 26-year veteran of
the school district.
"I am very pleased. You have
made my day-my year, Barkley
said.
Her principal, Elizabeth Turner
said, in her recommendation
about Barkley, "Mrs. Barkley has
a fantastic personality. In any sit-
uation her interpersonal skills are
great. She always has positive
thoughts for students that
encourage and motivate them to
always strive to do better."
Barkley received $200 for the
award and an opportunity to
compete as a state finalist.
Kim Mooney, a first
grade teacher at St. John Elemen-
tary School, is this year's
"Rookie of the Year. This is
Mooney's first year teaching in
the district.
She was praised by parents of
one of her students; Robert and
Diane Eason, as an outstanding
teacher. In their letter of recom-
mendation they said, "We are so
thankful to have her teaching our


son. She shows genuine concern
for all of her students."
Mooney credited her students
with her success. "My children
come with smiles every day and
they are ready to learn," Mooney
said.
According to James, the Rookie
of the Year award is developed
by the Gadsden County Schools
in an effort to recognize and
retain new teachers in the dis-
trict.

Pow Wow
Continued from Page 1
and the food vendors will be
arriving tomorrow," Johnson said
Tuesday night. He had planned
the Pow Wow for September but
Hurricane Ivan's arrival made it
impossible. Native American
drummers from Orange Lake in
central Florida will appear as
well as Native American per-
formers from Tallahassee. The
family-oriented three day event
will also feature arrowhead mak-
ing, tomahawk throwing, knife
throwing, and the little known art
of atlatl throwing, the forerunner
of the bow, according to John-
son.
Johnson, who is one-quarter
Cherokee, said the Pow Wow
will be a "mixed-breed" affair.
"We have commitments from
Creeks, Cherokee, Seminoles
and other tribes." he said.
There is no charge for any of
the events. For more informa-
tion, call Johnson at 663-2798.

Progress
Continued from Page 1
for a Gadsden County public
event for constituents to meet


their newly elected officials, and
agreed to do so by issuing one
check payable to the Gadsden
County Chamber of Commerce,"
wrote Aaron Periut.
He did not comment further on
the matter due to what might
become a pending investigation.
Dixon said he had no comment
Tuesday night following the
county commission meeting.
Clary and her family showed up
just as the meeting was ending
and said she had received a certi-
fied letter from the Ethnics Com-
mission acknowledging they had
received her complaint. "They
informed me that Mr. Dixon had
been notified," she said.
Two weeks ago Elizabeth Clary
filed the complaint alleging that
Dixon owed her $3,500 for use
of the Quincy' Conference Cen-
ter, which she owns, on Nov. 27,
2004 to host a victory party for
successful candidates in the
November election. Clary said
she and Dixon had a verbal
agreement while Dixon main-
tains, through a letter from attor,
ney Thornton Williams, that
Clary offered use of the facility
for free. Dixon's supporters ask,
"where's the contract?" if there
was a charge.
But Progress Energy may be at
the heart of the ethics matter
since they wrote a $4,500 check
to the Gadsden County Chamber
of Commerce which eventually
ended up re-written to Evans
Construction.
Following Tuesday night's reg-
ular meeting of the Board of
County Commissioners Evans
,indicated that he was ready to tell
his side of the story. He could not
be reached later by telephone.

FIRST PUBLIC HEARING NOTICE
Town of Greensboro
The Town of Greensboro is considering applying to the Florida Department of
Comniunity Affairs (DCA) for a 2005 Small Cities Community Development Block
Grant (CDBG) of up to $600,000. These funds must be used for one of the follow-
ing purposes:
1. To benefit low and moderate income persons;
2. To aid in the prevention or elimination of slums or blight; or
3. To meet other community development needs of recent origin having a partic-
ular urgency because existing conditions pose a serious and immediate threat to
the health or welfare of the community and where other financial resources are
not available to meet such needs.
The categories of activities for which these funds may be used are in the areas
of housing, neighborhood revitalization, commercial revitalization, or economic
development and include such improvement activities as acquisition of real prop-
erty, loans to private-for-profit business, purchase of machinery and equipment,
construction of infrastructure, rehabilitation of houses and commercial buildings,
and energy conservation. Additional information regarding the range of activities
that may be undertaken will be provided at the public hearing. For each activity
that is proposed, at least 70% of the funds must benefit low and moderate income
persons.
In developing an application for submission to DCA, the Town of Greensboro
must plan to minimize displacement of persons as a result of planned CDBG
activities. In addition, the Town is required to develop a plan to assist displaced
persons.
The Town will conduct a public hearing to receive citizen views concerning the
community's economic and community development needs on February 14,
2005 at 7:00 p.m. The hearing will be held in the Town Council Chambers at
Town Hall located at 150 East 11th Street, Greensboro, Florida 32330. For
more information concerning this meeting, contact Annie Proctor, Deputy
Clerk at 850-442-6215.
The public hearing is being conducted in a handicapped accessible location. Any
handicapped person requiring an interpreter for the hearing impaired or the visu-
ally impaired or requiring any other special accommodation, should contact Ms.
Proctor at the phone number listed above at least five calendar days prior to the
meeting so that arrangements can be made for an interpreter or other special

School honor rolls


Munroe's Iglesias has perfect SAT score
The December seating of the College Board's SAT II Writing test set the
scene for Robert F. Munroe Day School's senior, Samuel Iglesias to score
big! Samuel is the President of the Senior Beta Club at Munroe. He is a
member of the school Brain Brawl Team and plays varsity basketball, along
with being a member and vice president of Key Club.
Samuel has scored well on each of the standardized tests for college en-
try, but he out did himself with 800 on the recent writing section of the test.
He has applied to several schools in the northeast as well as Florida schools
and has yet to decide on his choice for the fall freshman semester.
Samuel is the son of Vera and Carlos Iglesias of Greensboro.

Munroe's Key Club wins

faculty baall ame for 2n'd year


The annual Key Club fundraiser at
Robert F. Munroe Day School took
place Friday afternoon in a gym full
of students waiving signs of support
and cheering for their favorite facul-
ty or Key Club member.
Coached by junior Joseph Hack-
ney, the Key Club team consisted of
seniors Joey Higdon, Jim Seay, An-
drew Gay, Tyler McKinnon,
Thomas Sirmons, Jay Revell, Whid-
don Macon, and sophomores Clay
White and J.T. Helm.
Key Clubber Wil Whiddon an-
nounced the game while Steve
Phillips ran the scoreboard.
Coached by softball coach Don
Klees, the faculty consisted of boy's
basketball coach Kevin Smith, foot-
ball coach Jason Whitaker, English
teacher and cheerleading coach
Mandy VanLandingham, social
studies teacher and j.v. boy's basket-
ball coach John Mark Bryant (Key
Club sponsor), and third grade


teacher and tennis coach Carolyn
Summerford.
Also pacing the court for the fac-
ulty were j.v. girl's basketball coach
Gary Bryant, assistant volleyball
coach Mike Dolan, and jr. high
boy's basketball coach Tommy
Young.
In a close game that went into dou-
ble overtime, Joey Higdon and Clay
White scored top points for the Key
Club, while Coach J.M. Bryant and
Coach Smith ran a tight defense.
After the refs, Coach Susie Mor-
ris and student Dominique Whigh-
am blew the whistle on some highly
debated calls, the Key Club sealed
the victory following a three-pointer
by Clay White at the buzzer.
The money collected from the first
through twelfth graders for admis-
sion and concessions will help fund
future Key Club projects and help to
assist the club's first appearance at
the state convention in April.

home. The alert was called in and within a few
hiinutes the calls started going out.
"We had wanted to warn residents before we ac-
Tually used the system, but we know that it works
and the child was returned home safely," McSwain
said.
The calls went out at about la.m.. Sunday to
homes near where the child wert missing.
McSwain said that they will not call that late
unless it is urgent and it is determined that the
:child or missing elderly person is still in the area.
ACIM normally calls between 7 a.m. and 9 p.m.
unless there are extenuating circumstances and the
law enforcement agency calling ACIM determines
the need.
Should you receive a call about a missing per-
son, McSwain said the caller will identify them-
selves as calling for the Quincy Police Department
in reference to a local missing child or elderly per-

son. They will give you a description of the person
and where they were last seen, he said. In addition,
McSwain said, they will ask you to call the Quin-
cy police department with any information.
"With so many scams out there I want people to
know what the calls are about and why they are
getting them," McSwain said.
The Quincy police department is the first law
enforcement agency in Gadsden County to insti-
tute the A Child is Missing program. Currently
both the Tallahassee police department and the
Leon County sheriff's department use the pro-
gram.
The program will be automatically used if a
child of eight or younger is missing or abducted,
McSwain said. He added that the program will al-
so be used for elderly people especially those with
Alzheimer who walk off or go missing. "We in-
tend to use every tool available to us when it
comes to finding missing children and the elderly."
If you would like more information concerning
A Child Is Missing you can go to their web site
or call the Quincy po-
lice department at 875-7335.

Dear Gadsden, Liberty & Calhoun
County Residents,
Two years ago I obtained my Florida
Dealer's License due to the frustration of
shopping for a used car. The following three
things made car shopping a big headache
for me:
*Haggling for the best price
*Having to come up with $2000 to $3000
for a down payment, taxes, title and tag


0 Down
1299/mo


AND...
We'll Pay Tag
and Taxes!


*Paying someone a $5000 $6000 profit
on a $10,000 automobile.
Here's what we've done at Direct Automo-
tive Wholesale:
*All vehicles are priced at the "Loan
Value", which is the price credit unions and
banks will loan you on this vehicle.
*We require NO DOWN PAYMENT on any
of our vehicles. We can even help with your
taxes and tag most of the time.


Just 19,000 MILES!
SO Down and just 386/mo


*At LOAN VALUE, we make a small profit
and you get a great deal!
The best Part is we have family on the
lot, NOT HIGH PRESSURE SALES PEOPLE.
If you don't see the car of your dreams in
this ad, call us. We'll get you pre-approved,
tell you what it will cost and buy it for you.
We appreciate you're supporting us. Come
by or call.


always







We sell all of our cars at
loan value so you don't
need a down payment!
