County

balks at

fire station

support;

Williams

is hired

by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

The volunteer Wetumpka Fire
Department told the Board of
County Commissioners that they
wanted to apply for a grant for a
substation in the south county area.
The community has a fire station
which is partially maintained by
county funds. They asked if the
county would authorize a letter in
support of the grant application.
The question that concerned Com-
missioner Ed Dixon was whether
the letter to help Wetumpka get
another station would impact nega-
tively on other communities in the
county that will apply for funds
from the same pot.
Commissioner Ed Dixon, who
lives in the lake area, said he found
it hard to support one community
having two fire stations while others
in the county have none.
George Hamilton and Flake Cloud
said the grant, if they were success-
ful in landing it, would build a sec-
ond fire station this one with a
landing pad for helicopters.
"We want a letter from iou sa. ing
you support this effort," Cloud said,
adding, "It will be a substation of
the Wetumpka Fire Department and
it will not be a part of the contract
(that the county currently has with
volunteer and municipal fire depart-
ments).
Dixon asked Tommy Baker how
the substation would fit into the
county's plan for overall fire protec-
tion. Baker said the county is on
track in providing county-wide pro-
tection and that they are currently
preparing to apply for grants, too.
"We have been hampered by the
acquisition of property," Baker said.
"So, in essence we are okaying it
for you to compete against us,"
Dixon said.
Cloud said there is no guarantee
that the county will get a grant if
Wetumpka didn't apply. He said
other communities can take the
same initiative as Wetumpka. The
community holds annual garage
sales and pilau suppers to raise
money for their fire station. "Only
about one-third of our money comes
from the county. We raise the
other," Cloud said.
Atty. Thornton Williams said he
had a legal concern on whether
Wetumpka was in violation of its
contract with the county by expand-
ing the service area. "We're not
expanding our area, we're expand-
ing our services. This will help with
our insurance rates," he said.
"This is a group of people who has
taken the initiative to help them-
selves. I don't see why we shouldn't
reward that," said Commissioner
Sterling Watson.
Cloud and Hamilton said regard-
less of whether a letter from the
county is received they will go for-

Emotions ran high Tuesday night
when a room full of teachers and
staff professionals heard that they
would not be receiving any addi-
tional raises in their pay checks.
The controversial decision had
been a week in coming.
The board met last week in a pub-
lic hearing and listened to both the
association recommendations and
the staff/ recommendations. They
postponed the decision until Tues-
day night to allow each board mem-
ber an opportunity to review the
information provided by both sides.
Tuesday night's meeting
was open to the public, but no pub-
lic comment was allowed. Several
of the audience members were upset
that they were not allowed to speak.
Board chairman Judge Helms
explained that the public hearing the
week before was when the board
allowed time for public input. This
meeting he said, was strictly for the
board to discuss the issues and vote
on the recommendations. *
One board member, Eric Vinson
had concerns that teachers are not
going to get raises. He said that
many of the financial issues were in
place before he and superintendent
Reginald James came on board.
Hinson wanted the board to find a
way to give the raises.
The problem with giving raises,
board member Isaac Simmons said,
is that there is no money available.
"We can't give a salary increase
without money, it's just not there,"
he said.


New management H" CROSSROAD
A 4 A W w 9 IAr


ordered for three


housing properties


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

The U.S. Department of Agriculture Rural Development has
requested that the Community Economic Development Corporation,
Inc. change the management at Vanguard Village in Gretna and
Triple Oaks and Omega Villas in Quincy. The properties are oper-
ated by Community Economic Development Organization (CEDO)
Housing Development Corporation but were financed by USDA.
"After careful consideration, we do not feel sufficient information
was provided to justify reversing our decision to require new man-
agement for the three complexes..." wrote Charles Clemons, Sr.,
state director to the Rev. Jerome Showers, chairman of the Board of
CEDO Housing Development Corp., Inc.
Millie Forehand, executive director, said the organization will
send out requests for proposals to manage the properties and select
the best individual or organization to take over management respon-
sibilities. "We'll get some new blood in here and that will be fine,"
she said. The RFPs are scheduled to go out this week.
The current management, stated Clemons, has failed to operate the
complexes in accordance with USDA Rural Development regula-
tions. He specifically said the management company:


Triple Oaks Apartment Complex is one of three that will be
under new management

*Did not properly complete tenant certification and income was
not properly certified, resulting in a significant loss to the govern-
ment and providing rental assistance which was not due tenants.
*Deferred maintenance at Vanguard Village and Triple Oaks,
including maintaining the parking/driveway areas, common areas
and tenant units.
*Has not submitted annual audits and year-end reports in a timely
manner as required. The audit for the fiscal year ending June 2004
was due in September 2004 but was not submitted until January 14,
2005.
See MANAGEMENT on Page 10


Budget woes have plagued the
board all year. The school board
depends primarily on state revenue
money. That money is generated by
the number of students in the school
system.
The Gadsden County School sys-
tem has had a declining school pop-
ulation which means less money
coming into the coffers.
Board member Roger Milton said
that the only money that might have
been available for raises in the
board's 'contingency fund was not
there. According to Milton other
systems have a seven percent fund,
but Gadsden's is below two percent.
"Even if we went down to zero,
there is not enough money for
raises," Milton said.
James said that he is currently
working on next year's budget and
that "next year looks a whole lot
better."
"I can't change the past," James
said, adding, "I will not be in this
position next year."
The board held two meetings, one
for the teachers' association and one
for the staff professional associa-
tion.
Both raises were struck down by
the board, with Eric Hinson voting
for the raises and Helms, Simmons,
Milton and board member Charlie
Frost voting for the school staff rec-
ommendations.
"We've made a decision tonight
we did not want to make," Helms
said.
The issue is not over. The agree-
ment must be ratified by both asso-
ciations which could mean the
board may see the issue again.


Pre-K program

getting ready to

start in Florida
by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
In the November 2002 election, the citizens
of Florida voted for an amendment that
required a voluntary prekindergarten program
for all four-year-old children by the fall of
2005. The bill was signed into law by Gov. Jeb
Bush in January of this year.
Any child who is four years old by Septem-
ber 1 and who resides in Florida is eligible for
a free VPK program. It is strictly a voluntary
program for children and providers. The intent
is to prepare four-year-olds for kindergarten
for their educational success.
To be involved in the program, parents were
given two options. First, a school-year pro-
gram consisting of 540 instructional hours
and a summer program that consists of 300
instructional hours. Providers, whether public
schools or private day care centers, have flex-
ibility in how they deliver the needed hours to
students. The state uses the following exan-
ple:
If a program is 180 days (similar to the
school year calendar) it could offer 3 hours of

Gretna because of truck accident
involving a toxic chemical.?
Also in the mid-1970's a train

Florida killed several people along
US 231 a half-mile from the train

"Many believe that it would be

Mike Walsh, representing the GCH

Hospital lobby dedicated to Dr. Furlow


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

The lobby at Gadsden Commu-
nity Hospital has had a facelift.
The beautifully appointed
room now has new leather furni-
ture, new flooring, freshly painted
walls, and new window treat-
ments that extend into the dining


area..
There was standing room only
last Wednesday afternoon when
the area was officially dedicated,
but most people were there to
honor the person to whom the
lobby is dedicated, longtime
physician Dr. Jessie V. Furlow.
"Dr. Jessie," as she is affec-
tionately known, was unable to


attend the dedication because she
was not well. Her mother, Georgia
Gragg, and sister, Catherine
Clemons, made the trip from their
hometown of Memphis, TN.
She was lauded for her com-
mitment to her patients and to the
community. "The woman we
honor today stands head and

ter has made the facility not just a
gallery "but a bridge to bring
minds and ideas together".
Golloway oversaw her last
opening night Friday night. In a
way it was her legacy, too. The
show "Winner's Circle" presented
the works of those who, since
1995, have taken home checks


and plaques for their work shown
at the gallery. The current show is
dedicated to one of Golloway's
favorite artists, Bill Thursby, who
was known for his jewelry, col-
ored pencil drawings, and masks.
Appleton and husband, Dave
Harbaugh, are more than anyone
the founder's of Art In Gadsden, a
regional fine arts show that rivals
any in the area. Appleton said that
although they planted the seed, it


was Golloway who nurtured it
until it grew.
Becky Carlin and Becky Reep,
who work at the gallery, said Gol-
loway has been ajoy to work with
through the years. Carlin pre-
sented Golloway with a bag of
bread crumbs and a map so that
she would find her way back to
the gallery from time to time as
she embarks on retirement.

Any coach will tell you
that the most important part of
an athlete's ability is their heart
or in simpler terms their ability
to give it their all.
Certainly you need talent
and a lot of hard work, but in
the end it's the heart that makes
an athlete great.
Not all great athletes end up
winning a Superbowl or break-
ing a world record, sometimes
they are in our back yard.
Last week I saw a lot of
great athletes.
They were participating in
this year's Special Olympics
Games held at the East Gads-
den High School Track Field.
It didn't matter if it was a
broad jump or a 100-meter
dash, they gave it all they had
to give.


Oh yes, there was a lot of
competition, it wasn't just
showing up and participating.
These kids meant business and
some of the events were very
close.
But, then that is what com-
petition is about isn't it, being
able to give your best. Winning
is important, but sometimes it
is not the most important thing.
I grew up playing sports and
there is one thing that I can tell
you, it was some of the best
times of my life. I'm sure that
these athletes will one day tell
you the same thing about their
experiences in the Special
Olympics.
Win, lose or draw these ath-
letes were there to do their best
and that is exactly what they
did.


What I saw warmed my
heart.
There wasn't a frown on the
field.
It's nice to be around happy
people and these athletes were
having a great time and it
showed in their faces.
When you talk about ath-
letes, the word hero always
comes up.
Well, there were some
heroes at the games.
The real heroes were all of
the volunteers that were there
to keep score, encourage the
athletes and make sure that they
had a great time.
It worked, too.
I cannot praise enough those
that put on the event.
They were all heroes and I'm
glad that I live somewhere that
people will step up to the plate
and volunteer their time for
such a cause.
It says a lot about our com-
munity and the kind of people
that live here.
Thank you, to all of the Spe-
cial Olympic volunteers.

Ask a Librarian: Free online help a hit with

Floridians for finding information on the internet


"Where do I begin
researching my family tree?"
"I pulled information from
the Web for my homework,
but how do I know if it's reli-
able?"
"How many different
types of snakes are there in
Florida's Everglades?"
"Where can I find accurate
demographics for Broward
County online?"
SNot so long ago, questions
such as these required a trip
to the library for their
answers-answers that likely
required expert help from a
librarian. That was then, this
is now. Today, thanks to an
exciting new online refer-
ence service, "Ask a Librar-
ian", that library expertise is
just a click away. And best of
all, the service is free to
everyone in Florida.
"Ask a Librarian is still a
bit of a hidden gem among
the glut of information on
the Web today, but it's catch-
ing on quickly as more com-
munities around the state
hear about it," said Vince
Mariner, Ask a Librarian's
Statewide Coordinator. "This
service puts a librarian's help
at the fingertips of anyone
who has a question, regard-
less of age or geographic
location. Whether you're in
grade school or a senior citi-
zen, a computer novice or a
pro, Ask a Librarian can
meet your needs.
"Some people come to the
Web site with specific ques-
tions they need answered,
while others just simply don't
know where to begin looking
for information on the Web.
Either way, they've come to
the right place and to the
information professionals
who can find their answers
and help them untangle the


Web. There's no need to
leave your home or office to
ask your question, just go to
the service's Web site and a
librarian is there to help," he
said.
Among Ask a Librarian's
most appealing features and
one that helps distinguish it
from many other reference
Web sites is that there is no
fee to access or use the
online service. Ask a Librar-
ian is a grant funded service
designed to extend the tradi-
tional reach of libraries-to
make expert reference serv-
ice available to everyone in
Florida. Just as a local
library operates as a free
community resource, so too,
does Ask a Librarian.
So give me the details ...
how does Ask a Librarian
work?
In order to handle the thou-
sands of questions Ask a
Librarian receives each
month, the service relies
upon the collective expertise
of librarians representing
over 80 public, academic and
special libraries throughout
Florida. Those librarians
work together to offer live
chat reference service Sun-
day through Friday from 10


a.m. to 10 p.m., and on Sat-
urdays from 10 a.m. to 5
p.m. During periods when
the live chat reference serv-
ice is not available, or at any
other time, individuals can
conveniently e-mail their
questions to Ask a Librarian.
From the Web, just go to
www.askalibrarian.org and
follow the simple instruc-
tions for entering your ques-
tion. If visiting during a time
when the live chat service is
available, you can text chat
directly with the librarian
handling your question. Ask
a Librarian uses unique soft-
ware that allows you to fol-
low along on the Web with
the librarian so you can see
how and where the librarian
is locating the information.
The chat session is totally
interactive and there is no
special software to down-
load-it's all handled by the
Ask a Librarian Web site.
"At the end you can even
print off a transcript of the
entire session in case you
need to refer to it again,"
added Mariner. "It's a fasci-
nating way to receive assis-
tance and learn lifelong
research skills at the same
time."

Health care in North Florida addressed by Congressman Boyd


By Congressman Allen Boyd


Access to quality, affordable
healthcare is a critical part of Amer-
ican life. Unfortunately, over 45
million Americans are currently
uninsured and thereby denied
access to quality care.
The rising costs of healthcare,
lack of adequate insurance, and
equitable access to that care are
some of the toughest issues facing
Congress and our nation in the 21st
century.
During the past few years, my
constituents have consistently
voiced similar concerns about the
availability, affordability and qual-
ity of healthcare in North Florida. I
have been active in tackling these
problems on a national level by
working on issues such as prescrip-
tion drugs, Medicare reimburse-
ment rates, and medical malpractice
reform.
Although much more needs to
be done in Washington, there is

i .
>. _I_.- a-


more that we can do at home as
well. For this reason, I hosted a 15
city healthcare tour across North
Florida last week to start a dialogue
within our communities on health-
care. By bringing the community
together, we will be able to turn
these conversations into workable


plans to help our citizens receive
the quality healthcare they need and
deserve. With 15 healthcare com-
munity meetings from Live Oak to
Santa Rosa Beach, no healthcare
issue was left untouched.
I have taken the concerns
expressed by my constituents,
members of the medical commu-
nity, and area healthcare providers
to help identify the local problems
and resources unique to each com-
munity.
Many citizens in rural areas
expressed the need for better access
to healthcare facilities with
improved local ambulance service
and timelier transfers to major hos-
pitals.
These are problems that we as a
community can tackle.E County
commissioners, other local leaders,
members of the medical community
and citizens must come together to
develop a comprehensive strategy
for enhancing healthcare opportuni-
ties for everyone.
The city of Apalachicola has




Allen Boyd

N i recent town hall
meeting in
S Quincy about

issues

DuPont

taken the first step by establishing a
committee to address healthcare
issues in their area.E With repre-
sentatives from local government
and the area hospital as well as con-
sumers, the 16-person committee
will work to solve healthcare prob-
lems locally, and I urge other com-


munities to follow suit.
Through collaborative commu-
nity efforts, healthcare concerns
that seem insurmountable can
become much more approachable.
In areas like Panama City and Tal-
lahassee, the meetings centered on
the issues of medical malpractice
and more affordable healthcare
with the high cost of prescription
drugs. These are national issues that
Congress must address.
I will continue to work in Wash-
ington to reform medical malprac-
tice law and help our seniors get the
prescription drugs they need at a
reasonable price. In January of
2006, the Medicare Prescription
Drug Act will go into effect to alle-
viate some of the burden of high
prescription drugs costs.
Although this plan is not perfect
and will inevitably require modifi-
cations in the future, it is a step in
the right direction toward afford-
able prescription drug costs for our
seniors. The United States sets the
world standard for quality medical
care. The excellence and expertise
of our medical system helps
patients survive illnesses that once
would have been fatal. Good physi-
cal and mental healthcare are essen-
tial for children to learn in school,
for our nation's employees to be
productive at work, and for our sen-
ior citizens to enjoy their well-
deserved retirements.
1 implore the residents of North
Florida to participate in planning
the future of our healthcare system.
Please know that I am working
towards these goals in Washington,
but I also ask that our citizens come
together in their communities.
If we all work together to recog-
nize the problems and resources
available, then we will also be able
to find the answers and implement
responsible and effective solutions.
We must work together to make
healthcare accessible and afford-
able for all Americans, because our
nation's strength depends on the
health of its citizens.

Students from GTI's barber and cosmetology school got a chance to learn more about their craft at the recent
Hair Show 2005 in Atlanta.

GTI barber, cosmetology students attend

"mane" attraction: Hair Show 2005


Procedure promotes

positive behavior

at Shanks MS

Since December, the sixth through eighth grade stu-
dents at James A. Shanks Middle School have been
exposed to a new lunchroom procedure called Best
Dressed Table. Each day the administrators, reading
coach and counseling staff salute a class demonstrating
good social graces at the table, using restaurant voice
tone and conversation, as well as insuring paper or
food drippings have been removed from the designated
dining area before leaving the school lunch room.
At the end of the week, a champion is recognized for
each grade level with a public announcement, certifi-
cate, ice cream social and a rotating trophy. The grade
level champions for the week of Jan. 31-Feb. 4 are:
Headley White's 6th grade, Mary Taylor's 7th grade,
and Tomeka Lightfoot's 8th grade.
Best Dressed Table champions for the week of Jan. 24-


28 were Angela Proctor's and Sarah Walker's 6th
grade, Mary Taylor's 7th grade, and Catherine Jack-
son's 8th grade.
The new lunch room procedure has enhanced the
overall cleanliness of the cafeteria and provided
another avenue for students to demonstrate responsibil-
ity and school pride. Principal Rosalyn West Smith
thanks the members of the School Advisory Council
for their support of the program.

The experience of a lifetime awaited the GTI Barber
Cosmetology students in Atlanta, GA. The Hair Show
2005 was the main attraction for all the hair schools and
hair professionals over the U.S. and took place Feb. 18-
21.
Don Gibson, class instructor, took the students to
observe and participate in hands-on hair activities which
he felt would help to enhance their knowledge in the
world of hair styling.
Pee'Lar Gilyard, a GTI student, said, "In my visit to
the hair show I learned exactly how important it is to
maintain hair."
"The hair show in Atlanta was the greatest adventure
I've ever had," said Jessie Green. Marcus Green said,
"From cuts to hairstyles to the use of new curling irons
- I feel like I'm ready to start my own business thanks to
the community."
"I always wanted to gain knowledge about braiding
and dreading hair. Thanks to Bronner Brothers Hair
Show I became skillful on the processes of braiding and
the three steps to dreading," said Brittney Smart.
Other students commented, "I learned how to (Notch
Stitch) which is a new way to sew in hair weave without


braiding the natural hair. By using this technique I find
it easier to maintain and stylists will earn more money
from it," said Ashley Anderson. Shavonda Davis said,
"I found the Fusion technique to be an excellent kit to
use in hair salons. This kit will ensure your customers
prevention of damaging their hair when adding exten-
sions."
Michelle House said, "I'm ready to create the
Mohawk, sew in hair on twist, and enjoy the wonderful
technique of under braiding."
"WOW!" was the expression Ricardo Akins, a student
in the Barber Cosmetology adult program, gave when he
entered Exhibit Hall Monday, Feb. 20.
"Educational adventure we took as a collective body
was just what we needed. I remember one of the most
important quotes that was stated by Jennifer, the Nu
Expressions platform stylist, "Hairdressers make money
but hairstylists get paid." Therefore, I aspire to become
a hairstylist, which is one who educates."
The class would like to thank everyone who helped
make it possible to travel to Atlanta. In all your efforts
we deeply appreciate you, the community, for enhanc-
ing our knowledge.

Lord of Lords. The Savior of the whole world. Since we all have
a measure of faith, just think what faith can do. Jesus said if ye
have faith and doubt not, ye shall not doubt ye shall not only speak
to the fig tree and it withers away. But if ye shall say unto this
mountain, be thou removed and be thou cast into the sea, it shall
be done. Matthew 21:21 says Jesus honors our faith, but we must release our faith. There is no
problem whatever the nature, that Jesus cannot solve. We always claim the problem, but what
we need is to possess and claim the Problem Solver. Two blind men followed Jesus, crying thou
son of David have mercy on us. What are we cry for? Are we following Jesus with a purpose?
Have we upheld our faith? It's time for a change. God is still in control. He is the governor of
every nation. Our schools are not out of God's reach, nor our hospitals, nursing homes and
families. St. Mark 9:22-23 states if thou canst believe all things are possible to him that
believe? Or doubters? Lord help your people which are called by your name. 2 Corinthians 7:14
except our rightful place in God and our responsibility so we can get our situation changed. We
need to spend more time studying God's word and learn to obey his word. God is bigger than
any problem Satan inflict on God's people He is present at all times. He is no bigger than our
spiritual eyes can see. He knows our hearts, minds, and intentions. It's time for a change. We
need to learn who Jesus is and the power in his hand.
Evangelist Florence M. Bradwell

...and how it works for you
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!

instruction each day to meet the
requirement. They may also choose
to offer a 6-hour-per day program
for 90 days.
The instruction and programs must
be developmentally appropriate.
The state is only going to pay for the
.instructional hours, and activities
such as napping do not qualify for
funding. Many four-year-olds
require a nap at some point in the
day. There are other options
providers can consider, including
offering a morning or afternoon pro-
gram for two or three days per week
rather than every day.
The program is set to begin with
the 2005-2006 school term. Public,
private, and faith-based providers
are eligible to deliver the service if
they have met the minimum stan-
dards required by law. The first
summer program is set to begin in
2006.
The problem some providers are
wrestling with at this point is how
the program will be funded. That
will not be decided until the 2005
legislative session, which has yet to
convene. Gov. Bush has recom-
mended a base student allocation of
$2,500 per child. The wild card here
is that the legislature may choose
not to take the recommendation.
There will be no fees associated
with the program for the parents.
The program is free to all eligible
children, regardless of their income.
Providers will not be permitted to
,charge a registration fee or require
parents to pay for any additional
services.
Providers, however, will be able to
charge for those services that are not
a part of the VPK program. For
example, a child may attend a pri-
vate day care facility that offers
VPK in the mornings. If the child
remains at the center for the remain-
der of the day, they will be required
to pay the provider for the additional
time.
All providers will be paid in
advance with a reconciliation of
attendance conducted at the end of
each month.
-Transportation will not be pro-
vided. Florida law specifies that
eachl"parent is respon.tble for'the
transportation of his or her child to


RELAY
FOR LIFE


and from the VPK program. Florida
law also prohibits VPK providers
from discriminating against children
or their parents on the basis of race,
color, or national origin, including
the refusal to admit a child to the
VPK program.
The Early Learning Coalition
(ELC) is serving Leon and Gadsden
counties and is helping providers
navigate the waters of this program
that still has a lot of unanswered
questions.
Last Thursday, a VPK overview
was held for prospective private
caregivers at the Big Bend Work-
force Building. More than 30 poten-
tial providers attended. Last
Wednesday morning public school
officials learned their role in VPK.
The Early Learning Coalition
(ELC) met the potential providers to
answer questions about the program
and to guide them through as much
of the process as much as possible to
become providers. Kathy Douglas
explained that some of the kinks
have yet to be worked out of the
VPK program.
For the private sector, the Agency
for Workforce Innovation will be
responsible for the day-to-day oper-
ations. This will consist of an early
Learning Advisory Committee and
Early Learning Coalitions. Linda
Alexinok, chairman, attended
Thursday's meeting and spoke
briefly to the audience about the
importance of the program. She said
she was encouraged to see so many
private providers with an interest in
the program.
For the private sector, the Depart-
ment of Children and Famiuies will
be responsible for licensing- and
awarding of child development
associates (CDAs ) and CDA equiv-
alents. There will be no more than
30 by April 1.
The ELCs will consist of a chair
and two other members who are
appointed by the governor. Also on
that board will be an individual from
the regional workforce, president of
a community college and a repre-
sentative of programs for children
with disabilities as well as a repre-
sentative of private family day care
home providers. This group will be
responsible for local coordination,
implementation, and fiscal account-
ability for school readiness and,
VPK programs.
For the private provider, pre-
classes will have at least four stu-


dents, but not more than 18 children.
The program is made up of 540
hours of instruction and must be-
conducted at a licensed facility or
non public school or family-based
exempt provider.
The private provider must be
accredited by a member association
of the National Council for Pri ate"
School Accreditation, the-Commis--
sion on Internationad and Trahis-
Regional Accreditationi or the
Florida Association of Academic
Non-Public Schools, and hold a
Gold Seal- designation. Another
option for the private provider is
that they be licensed and verified'by
the local coalition as meeting the.
VPK program_ requirements for cre-
dentials and background-screenings
of prekindergarten instructors, mini-
mum and maximum class size,:
prekindergdrten director credentials,;
and a developmental) appropriate
curriculum.
In classes with 11 or mtore chil-
dren, there must be a-qualified pre-K
instructor as well as one additional
adult instructor. There must also be
a pre-K director with a pre-K direc-
tor credential that is approved by the
Department of Education as meeting
the requirements. The requirements
for pre-K instrucuon are as strict as
in the public schools.
The pre-K instructor must have a'
CDA or CDA-equivalen who has
completed an emergent literacy.
trainjne course or have a bachelor's
degree or higher in earl\ childhood
education, pre-K or primarN educa-
uon. pre-K education. or familN and
consumer science, or a bachelor's
degree in elementarN education. if
the instructor has been certified to
teach any age from birth to grade 6.
Some private providers worked
about the requirements for private
care givers and meeting the educa-
tional standards for people already
on staff who do not have the educa-
tional background. Some relief is
available because the pro. ider could
have as little as an associate's
degree or higher in child detelop-
ment, and associate's degree or
higher in an-unrelated field or at
least six hours of early childhood or
child development and at least 4-80.
hours of experience, or ani educa-
tional credential approved by -the
Department of Education as being
equivalent or greater. -

Housing
Continued from Page 1
*Has not submitted annual budget
projections in a timely manner.
*Has failed to maintain a waiting
list and has failed to notify prospec-
tive tenants of their eligibility status.
*Has failed to ensure that proper
posters are displayed in the com-
plexes, including the "And Justice
For All" ard the "Equal Employ-
ment Opportunity" posters.
*Has failed to ensure the Appliea-
-tion for Tenancy is in compliance as
well as failed to ensure that Lease
Agreement is in compliance.
*Is in violation of the Florida
Statutes regarding return of security
deposits and notification of tenants
upon vacating the complex.
"The management company has
failed to market the complexes
-effectively as evidenced by the sig-
nificant vacancy rates at Omega Vil-
las and Triple Oaks. The average
vacancy rate at Omega Villas in
2004 was 86 percent, and the aver-
age vacancy rate at Triple Oaks in;
2004 was 35 percent," Clemons
wrote.
Forehand said every attempt has
been made to inform farm workers
of the available housing. She said
[hat some farm workers, particularly
Hjspanics, are wary of moving into
the complexes because they don't
want the government watching over
them. She said they preferred living
i.n other housing because of personal
pritacy issues. She said she hopes
the net\ management will be able to
encourage more Hispanics to take
advantage of the housing complex.
But the high vacancy rate, espe-
ciall1 at Omega Villas, has caused
the complex to be delinquent since
December 1, 2003. "This agency
cannot concur with the borrower's
,request to re-amortize the loan, as
the % acancy rate prohibits a positi\ e
cash flow at the complex," said
IClemons.
SFinally, Clemons said the manage-
ment-company closed the laundry
:room at triple Oaks, which also
serves Omega Villas, and used the
laundry room and at least one apart-


ment unit for a charter school with Thornton Williams as the county's


approval from USDA Rural Devel-
opment. The charter school, Cross-
roads Academy, is a business and
industry charter school and has been
operational for several ye7's1 The
school,she said, will remain open.
Forehand said USDA knew full
well about the charter school 'and
about the problems the management
company was experiencing.
"They're acting like they didn't
know about any of this. They knew
all about this because we've even
asked them for help," she said.
The trouble began when, accord-
ing to Forehand, Showers told the
Omega Villas architect that there
were problems with the complex
and asked the federal government to
step in.
"Rev. Showers told him that he
didn't like his attitude and that's
when our problems started," Fore-
hand said.
Still, the CEDO Housing Develop-
ment Corporation has 30 days from
Feb. 16 to replace the current mian-
agement with a professional man-
agement agency.
Forehand said only four employ-
ees will be affected by the change.
The charter school will remain
where it is.

16 Gadsden County Times March 3, 2005


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


*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.


-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.

win in


OT!
By Joe Ferolito
Times Sports Editor
A six-point overtime output by
Octavius Safford keyed East Gads-
den to a 70-67 win over Santa Fe
Alachua Tuesday night, and the
Jaguars lived to play another day.
The Jags now move on in the
FHSAA Class 3A basketball play-
offs.
The win came in a rowdy, packed
Santa Fe gym that saw the two
teams battle back and forth before
settling things in the extra period.
The win pushes East Gadsden's
record to 22-8 and puts them one
win .'. a':. li :nm the state finals. They
get a chance at that win in the
Jaguar gym Saturday night when
they host Jax Ribault in the Region
I 3A finals.
Brandon Bryant, who finished
with a game high 27 points, banged
in a pair of three-pointers early in
the game, and East Gadsden seemed
to be off and running.
Those six points were to be
Bryant's only ones in the first half,
and the Raiders used a stifling
defense and 11 points by Junior
Kyle Vejraska to build a 28-19 half-
time lead.
Santa Fe extended the lead to 12
midway through the third quarter
before a Jaguar scoring flurry
allowed them to tie it heading into
quarter four.
Seniors Eric Cato and William
Moore started banging the boards,
and Bryant's eight points, nine from
Cato and a big three-pointer from
Ricky Gennie got East Gadsden
even.

Brandon Bryant claims two for East Gadsden against Marianna in the team's post-season trail, that leads them back to Jaguar turf for a
home stand against Jacksonville Ribault Saturday night. Reshard McGill (23) and Earl Thomas (33) get in position for a rebound.

East Gadsdeni'.s girl will see
some fanuliar faces in Lakeland at
the Florida Finals.
No, the Ladv Jaguars v.on't
be up against a foe they've faced
before in this season.
Monsignor Pace from
Miami. who brought a 19-7 record
to Wednesday 's opening round
game, is from a different part of the


state. The Lad\ Spaitans \erei

T\o teams the Lad\ Jaguars

Finals in other classes.
FAMU made it in Clas A


A word to the wise: If you


Bryant, Safford lead Jags to


regional win over Marianna


Brandon Bryant scored outside and Octavius Safford
did the inside work leading the East Gadsden Jaguars to
a 65-47 win over Marianna in a FHSAA Class 3A
Region 1 opening round game Thursday night.
The win allowed the Jaguars to advance to the region
semi-finals against Sante Fe in Alachua Tuesday night.
Against Marianna, East Gadsden spaced out a 33-18
halftime lead and was never really threatened as they
racked up their 21st win of the season against 8 losses.
Bryant who has provided senior leadership all season
for the Jaguars scored 25 points in the first round game


EGHS tracksters
The East Gadsden Jaguar track teams have started
their 2005 season with track meets at Rickards and at
home.
In the Rickards Relays on February 22 the Jaguars
boys team won both the 4X100 and 4X200 relay races
setting school records in each event.
The 4X100 team was made up of Xavier Jackson, Ray-
mond Lumpkin, Vic Collier, and Phillip Kirkland. Jack-


and Safford added 17.
A big plus for East Gadsden was the team defensive
play. No Marianna player scored in double-figures in
the contest and the Jaguars controlled the boards with
Eric Cato's 9 rebounds topping the game in that cate-
gory.
A win in Alachua Tuesday night would put East
Gadsden in a home regional final game Saturday night
against either Jacksonville Ribault or DeFuniak Springs
Walton.



off and running
son, Lumpkin, and Collier were also on the 4X200 team
with Willie Jackson rounding out the crew.
On Saturday, February 26 East Gadsden hosted their
first ever home meet.
The team of Jackson, Lumpkin, Collier, and Kirkland
again broke the 4X100 school record in a time of 41.7.
James Pelham has come out of retirement to head the
track program and he is assisted by Doris Drake.

Bobcats off to 3-0 start


By Susie Morris
The Munroe 3obcat baseball team continues its win-
ning streak running their early season record to 4-0
with wins over Apalachicola and Blountstown.
On Friday night at the coast, Munroe's Joey Higdon
dominated on the mound and at the plate leading his
Bobcat team to a 13-1 five inning win at Apalachicola.
Higdon, a senior, picked up the win striking out nine
and scattering four hits. He also led with his bat going
3 for 5 with a homerun and four runs batted in.
Whiddon Macon added two doubles with two rbi's.
Andrew Gay and Thomas Sirmons each added two hits
as well.


The win pushed the team to 3-0 overall and 1-0 in
Class A District 3 competition.
Tuesday night the team traveled to Blountstown and
came away with an impressive 9-5 win over the 2A
team.
Thomas Sirmons picked up his second win on the'
mound, striking out seven and giving up only one hit
in 5 2/3 innings. Joey Higdon closed the game.
Whiddon Macon was 2 for 3 with two runs batted in.
Andrew Gay and BeeJay Philmore each added two hits
with Philmore scoring two runs. The team moved to
4-0 overall.


Jaguars
Continued from Page B1
The two teams switched leads in
fourth quarter play before a Bryant
"3" with 3:38 left put the Jaguars
up by five and seemed to give them
some breathing room.
Cato fouled out just seconds later,
and a dunk and back-to-back bas-
kets by Vejraska put the Raiders up
by one.
Bryant's three-point play gave
East Gadsden the lead at the 29 sec-
ond mark. That was followed by
turnovers from each team.
Jeff Camps' put back on a rebound
tied it with five seconds left, and the
Raiders kept the Jaguars from get-
ting off a good final shot to put the
game into overtime.
East Gadsden built a quick six
point lead in the extra period when
Safford scored two quick baskets
and Moore hit a pair of free throws.
But five quick points from Camps
and a basket by Melvin Patterson
got the Raiders a one-point lead at
the 1:21 mark.
A pair of free throws from sopho-
more Patrick Smith put the Jaguars
ahead with 1:08 left.
Again there was a swap of
turnovers before Vejraska's two free
throws gave Santa Fe a one-point
margin at the 26 second reading.
Bryant got the lead back for his
team on a driving lay-up, and Gen-
nie then got a steal and an assist to
Safford, getting the Jaguars the
three point cushion with 7.7 sec-
onds on the clock.
Camps launched a 3-pointer at the
buzzer, which didn't quite make it
to the glee of Jaguar fans, and it's on
to Saturday night for East Gadsden.
"It's great to survive," first-year
Jaguar Coach Demetric Salters said.
"This team has played 30 games,
but we're still a work in progress.
We're getting different things done
by different people, and that keeps
us going," Salters continued.
"We started bad on offense tonight
and let them control the boards. I
was glad we continued to play
defense, which helped us overcome
their big lead. That, and our transi-
tion game, wore them down and got
us back in it."
Safford ended with 12 points and
Cato 11 to back Bryant's 27 as East
Gadsden's twin-figure scorers.
Vejraska's 26 led the Raiders, while
Camps scored 15. Santa Fe ends its
season at 21-8.

Lady Jaguars


stomp Santa Fe,


Florida High to


earn 'Final 4'


Photo by Byron Spires


Shyrelle Home, EGHS' 5'6"' junior guard, takes it to the hoop for two more against
Florida High at home Saturday night. The Lady Jaguars were playing the state semifinal
game at presstime Wednesday and were within one game of the title matchup,


The East Gadsden Jaguars
team earned a second trip in as
many years to the 3A Final Four
in Lakeland this week.
Last Tuesday the upended
Santa Fe on the road 90-75 and
on Saturday night the Florida
High Seminoles at home 64-51.
The Seminoles(21-6) lost only
six games all season but half of
those came by way of the Jags.
East Gadsden's poise during a
late run proved to be fundamen-
tal the Jags needed most.
Florida High rallied from a
nine-point deficit with six min-
utes remaining to take a 43-42
lead. Unrattled, the Jaguars
began a charge of their own,
outscoring Florida High 15-1
over the next five minutes and
securing not only the Region 1
title but their second consecu-
tive trip to the state tournament
in Lakeland this week.
Senior guard Shyrelle Home
said, "We've been looking for-
ward to this the whole year.
Playing Florida High for the
fourth time this season, we
knew we had to work very
hard." On the subject of work-
ing hard, no one works harder
on the boards than sophomore
center, Chelsea McMillan. In
foul trouble the first half, she


finished with 15 points and
eight rebounds most coming in
the important second half.
Sophomore Tracy Lewis
scored eight points in the all
important fourth quarter spurt,
including a steal and putback
off a missed free throw for a 55-
44 lead with less than two min-
utes remaining. She finished
with 11 points and senior Kia
Andrews added nine points and
12 rebounds.
Another source of scoring for
the Jaguars was the free throw
line. East Gadsden shot 41 free
throws making 24. Florida
High on the other hand shot
only 16 free throws making
only 5.
Coach Roderick Glenn and
his team left by charter bus on
Tuesday for Lakeland. They
played Monsignor Pace of
Miami on Wednesday with the
winner of that game scheduled
to play Friday at 3:30 against
the winner of Bishop Moore of
Orlando and Academy of the
Holy Names of Tampa.
Should the team make it to
the final game, fans can check

Gadsden's top




teacher gives tips




for FCAT science


by Yasmeen Leon
Gadsden County
Teacher of the Year

Greetings, as Gadsden County
Teacher of the Year, I would like to
encourage teachers, students and
parents on their efforts to push stu-
dent's preparedness for the FCAT.
The testing window of February
28th through March llth is here.
Students in grades 3, grade 5, and
grade 11 will be tested on Science
FCAT skills.
This portion of the test includes
real life scenarios that call upon stu-
dents to think about what they
already know about science, and to
apply that understanding when
responding to FCAT-like questions
(multiple choice, short responses
i and extended responses).
The following table indicates the
kind of topics on which students
will be tested during the future
examination.

FCAT science content


Physical and chemical sciences:
describes matter & its properties
identifies atoms, elements, mix-
tures, & compounds
explains energy, its forms & inter-
action with matter
explains motion & identifies force


Earth and space sciences:
* explains weather systems
*recognizes rocks & minerals
*describes the solar system & uni-
verse
* explains Earth's changes over time

Life and environmental sciences:
* identifies & explains plants, ani-
mals, & life processes
* recognizes the importance of con-
servation of natural resources
* describes the interactions of plants,
animals, & the environment

Scientific thinking:
* applies scientific approaches to
problem solving
*recognizes patterns & systems
within nature
*recognizes the impact of technolo-
gy on society

Parents can help their children to
prepare for the FCAT by encourag-
ing reading for at least 30 minutes
each day, and also by visiting web-
sites like FCAT Explorer Which
offers questions in the format stu-
dents will have to respond to on the
actual test.
Also, parents, reinforce positive
messages to your child so that they
will linow that they have everything
that they need to be successful with
this test and in being a success at
school!

Gadsden 'Man of Action'
motivates students
at Havana Middle School

"Motivation by any means necessary"
was the chant of Capitola Baker who
arranged for a motivational chat with
Charles Flowers and her students at
Havana Middle School.
Flowers, of the Gadsden County Men


of Action, spoke to a select group of
students. This native of Gadsden Coun-
ty receivedhis education from the pub-
lic schools of the county. After gradu-
ating from high school, he went to De-
troit, Michigan to live for the next 35
years.
This motivational assembly was held
in Ms. Baker's classroom. She invited
Mrs. Jones' class to attend. The group
was small and this allowed ample time


for Flowers to answer questions from
the audience.
Flowers encouraged the youngsters to
do their very best. He also gave en-
couraging words about setting goals
and planning for the future.
The small group got a chance to in-
teract with Flowers by discussing their
plans for the future and by giving de-
tails about striving for a prosperous
future.


Seniors group plans Rockies tour
The Jackson County Seniors have planned a tour for July 10-
24 to the Big Sky Country, and to cross the Highway to the Sun
through Glacier National Park.
Attractions include Truman and Eisenhower Presidential li-
braries, Devil's Gulch, Ingalls' Little House on the Prairie,
Badlands National Park, Black Hills of South Dakota, and
more.
