Drugs, dogs


confiscated;


brothers


charged

by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
It took several months, but Gadsden County
Sheriff's Department deputies arrested two
brothers after issuing search warrants Friday
morning.
About 6 a.m. members of the Gadsden County
Sheriff's Office and agents from the North
Florida Violent Fugitive Task Force knocked on
the door of 25-year-old Terrence Jerome Shorter
and his 22-year-old brother Quintarius Reshard
Shorter, also known as "Krimmitt".
The two brothers were charged with a list of
crimes including dogfighting and maintaining a
drug house in the Sawdust Community.
"We have been getting numerous complaints
from people in the area about drug dealing and
dogfighting," said Lt. Jim Corder of the GCSO.
"With the arrest of these two, Sajdust is a safer
place to live," he said.
Quintarius Shorter, who has been identified as
a violent fugitive, has been charged with felony
fighting or baiting animals, felony possession
with intent to distribute crack and powdered
cocaine and marijuana, felony and'maintaining a

Walgreens plan


by BYRON SPIRES
Times Staff Writer

A new drug store is coming to
town.
Quincy commissioners gave con-
ceptual review approval to Wal-
greens drug store owners, Enchion
USA, Inc.
The proposed new 14,200 square
foot drug store will be located at the
southwest corner of Pat Thomas
Parkway and West Jefferson Street.
Currently the property houses an
Inland convenience store and gas
station.
According to a memo by city
building and planning director
Arleen Houston the Enchion Corp
asked for the review approval before
they invested in the final engineer-
ing documents and land agreements.
The store will require a Land
Development Regulation's variance
allowing for 60 parking places
instead of the required 74 off-street
spaces required by the LDR.
In other business the commission
heard from city director of utilities
Mo Cox about the status of the bond


paychecks:


monies that had been raised to pave:
city streets. Cox told commissioners'
that he needed their direction oi
how to use the remaining $311,699.-
Commissioner Keith Dowdell;
asked if the money could be used to:
stop an erosion problem he had in
his district. Dowdell has asked on
several occasions that the ditch at
Flagler and, Shelfer Street be cor-
rected. He provided pictures of the
ditch which he says is continuing to
widen from erosion. Currently the
ditch is surrounded by a chain link
fence.
The street which is adjacent to the
ditch is one-way. The one-way
street and the widening ditch;
Dowdell said, is creating a danger-
ous situation for neighbors near the
ditch. His recommendation is to put
replace the ditch with a culvert anOf
pave over it making the street a two
street.
According to commissioner Finley
Cook, the board had decided last
year to use the money for paving of
streets only. He was concerned that

Dwayne Ivory, president of the teacher's union and
" Ticlhet s Paul Burdette, executive director of the Big Bend Ser-
vice Unit, presented the case forthe teachers and sup-
port personnel unions.

raise 'foe the past two years. "Teachers and support per-
persotlnel sonnel want what is right, not what is left over. For too

Midway approves 400 lot subdivision


by BYRON SPIRES
Times Staff Writer

Midway council members
approved the site plan for a 400 lot
subdivision at last Thursday night's
meeting. The lots are the fi;st phase
of the Rustling Pines Subdivision.
The quarter acre lots are being
developed on 216 acres of the 1600
acres of land annexed into the city
last year.
Rustling Pines Subdivision is
adjacent to County Road 268 (High
Bridge Road) which extended the
city limits of Midway to Little
River on the western side of the
city.
Jamie Thompson, the developer
of the property said that the subdi-
vision will be for homes ranging
from $90,000 to $130,000, and will
have Talquin water and electricity.
Thompson is only developing the
property and the lots will be sold to
builders.
He compared the subdivision to
the Hill Top sub division that is
now starting to fill up with new
homes.
There was some concern from
council members aboqt the number
of septic tanks on the property. City
growth director Roosevelt Morris
said the lot size met the city's comp
plan, but Talquin's sewage system
does not cover the area at present.
Morris said that once Talquin's
sewage system crossed I-10 to the
south side of Midway (it is cur-
rently available on the north side of
I-10) the city could require subdivi-
sions to hook up to their system.

the new subdivision to the audience

In addition and as an added
incentive' for commissioners city
manager Paul Piller said the new
subdivision will have mandatory
garbage collection.
The council members also
approved the site plan for a new
7,000 square foot store and laun-
dromat, a site plan to rebuild High
Bluff Point. The council approved
a site plan for a new beauty parlor
and daycare facility to be built near
the Hill Top Subdivision.
In other business the council
approved the annexing of 2.5 acres
of commercial property in the
10/90 commerce park into the city.
The property was rezoned to the


city's interchange commercial zon-
ing, limiting the types of businesses
on the property.
The council also heard a report
from Mayor Delores Madison con-
cerning the city's school siting
committee. Madison said the
committee was looking into ways
to bring a school to Midway. A
piece of property has been donated
for a potential school and, accord-
ing to Madison, several options
have been discussed including a
possible charter school. S h e
added that the committee will con-
tinue to meet in its quest to bring a
school to Midway.

Smith of Greensboro was arrested
last Thursday night in Tallahassee
after a Leon County deputy's dog
tracked him down in a wooded area.
Deputy John Daly stopped a vehicle
.on Jackson Bluff Road for careless
driving about 10 p.m. and found that
Smith had outstanding arrest war-
rants for violation of probation,
aggravated assault with a weapon
and throwing a deadly missile into
an occupied dwelling.
When Deputy Daly attempted to
arrest him, Smith ran away. Sgt. Ed


Cook and K9 partner Eyko tracked

Charges dropped against former

Superintendent of Schools candidate


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

Asst. State Attorney Richard
Combs said the state has dropped
felony bad checks charge against
Joe Parramore, one-time candidate
for Superintendent of Schools.
Combs said last week that Par-
ramore, 42, had been charged in
February with grand theft after
passing worthless bank checks, a
third degree felony.
"The checks were written last
October to Wal-Mart. They have
sent me a letter saying a letter sent
to me was in error and that Par-
ramore had cleared up the checks,"
Combs said. Three checks were
written to the Quincy Wal-Mart


Super Center for items totaling
$308 and the checks bounced.
Combs said the matter was
dropped after the letter from Wal-
Mart. Parramore, according to
Combs, has reimbursed the store.
Parramore lost his bid for
superintendent of the school dis-
trict in the primary. Since the
November election he has been a
consultant with the sheriff's office.
Sheriff Morris Young said Par-
ramore's services, to set up the
department's financial software
program, were voluntary. In Janu-
ary, Young said he knew that Par-
ramore had been in trouble in the
past with bad check charges. "That
was a long time ago," he said.

County's has new growth management director
Bill McCord takes over the reins of Gadsden County's development driven agencies


by BYRON SPIRES
Times Staff Writer

Gadsden County's new growth
management director, Bill
McCord had to learn his job on
the run last week.
McCord presented several
issues to the county's planning
and zoning board including the
.conceptual plans for a new subdi-
vision and the review of the
county's future land use plan.
His first order of county busi-
ness was the much debated San
Bonita Farms major subdivision.
The conceptual plans for the 412
acre subdivision which has a
gated entrance on County Road
270 (Shady Rest Road) had been
held over from a previous meet-
ing awaiting the approval of an
adjacent subdivision.
The subdivision has ties to the
smaller San Bonita Estates Sub-
division along Gibson Sawmill

ing. photo by Byron Spires


Road that was approved at the
board's last meeting. San Bonita
Subdivision has an old logging
road across the CSX railroad that
the larger subdivision wants to
use as an emergency escape
route, tying the two subdivisions
together.
The debate which started in
February over the two subdivi-
sions continued at last week's
meeting.
One of the problems stemmed
from the use of septic tanks by
the larger subdivision. Several
board members had concerns
over the use of septic tanks and
their effects on the lots' wetlands.
Septic tanks are allowed under
current requirements. However,
the comp plan says that if an
existing water system is avail-
able, then the subdivision will be
required to hook up. There is a
Talquin water system that passes
in front of the subdivision.
The problem, according to for-
mer county growth management
director Bruce Ballister, is that


Talquin does not want to hook up
to the subdivision.
There will be 39 lots in the
subdivision scattered over the
412 acres which Talquin says
would not be in its best interest.
Another controversial issue is
the large amount of wetlands on
the property.
The subdivision's conceptual
plan states that the lots will be
between 10-15 acres. Because of
wetlands many of the lots will
only have 3-5 acres of buildable
property.
Eddie Bass, representing the
developer, said that many people
look for property with wetlands.
He said that each lot had a suffi-
cient amount of upland to build
on and that he had met with DEP
about the wetlands. Bass said
there would be deed restrictions
on the property prohibiting build-
ing in the wetland areas.
The property has a 10 acre
man-made pond with a earthen
dam that was also an issue for
several board members. Bass said


the dam had been checked and
was found to be sufficient for a
road. The dam is currently used
to access a home already on the
property.
The major subdivision will
encompass another minor subdi-
vision, already partially filled.
Bass said that the homeowners
association will include both the
existing minor subdivision and
the new subdivision.
There is currently an elec-
tronic gate at the entrance to the
minor subdivision which will
become the major subdivision's
entrance.
The board approved the San
Bonita Farms conceptual plan
In other business the board
reviewed the county's future land
use plan. The board's findings
will be presented to the county
commission at the first meeting
in April.
The planning and zoning
board acts as a advisory board
and all final decisions are made
by the county commission.


Gretna considers a code


enforcement board


by BYRON SPIRES
Times Staff Writer

Gretna city commissioners are
taking a serious look at code
enforcement.
Commissioner Helen Franks told
the commission that if something
wasn't done "we're gonna have a
slum city."
She was referring to the condi-
tion of some of the vacant lots, the
number of abandoned cars and the
growing amount of debris scattered
around the city.
Franks said she was concerned
with property values being driven
down because of the lack of code
enforcement. She added that the
city was starting to "really look
bad."
Franks wanted to know what the
city could do to hire a code enforce-
ment officer.
Hiring a code enforcement offi-
cer to enforce codes. cit> attorney


Harold Knowles told commission-
ers, would not be a simple task.
Knowles explained that the city
would need a code enforcement
board first to oversee the handling
of violations., The board would need
a lawyer since the city attorney
could not represent both the city
and the board.
A code enforcement officer hired
by the city would have to be certi-
fied, Knowles said.
Another factor according to
Knowles was the cost of setting up
a code enforcement office for the
city. "It may be something we need
to be looking at for the next budget
year," Knowles said.
Franks agreed that it would be
something to work into the next
budget, but added she wanted to
start working on the project now.
Knowles said that he had a lot of
background in code enforcement
issues and offered to have "some-
one come and give us the nuts and


bolts of how it operates."
Knowles will have more infor-
mation for the board at the next
meeting.
In other business interim city
manager Diane Formman told the
commissioners that the field work
for the past due 2001-2002 audit
had been finished. According to
Formman the audit should be in the
state's hands by next week. The
delinquent audit has held up the
city's state revenue sharing money
for the past eight months.
The financial crunch for the city
will get some relief, Formman later
said, hopefully by the end of next
week. "Once the state receives the
completed audit, they should
release the city's money."
Formman added that the city's
2002-2003 and 2003-2004 audits
were being worked on by her and
Gretna's financial consultant Bill
Bogans.
Bogans was hired in January to
help the city bring its audits current.
Both Bogan and Formman
received compliments from the
commissioners on getting the 2001-
2003 audit completed and their
" ork on te two remaining audits.

I'm talking about garbage.
:My garbage. Waste Manage-
ment's garbage container and
the problems I have encountered
;associated with my garbage and
their container. Oh, I put the
garbagee in it. The container is
-next to the street when and
;where it's supposed to be at all
,times.
Around 8 o'clock Saturday
'morning my neighbor rang the
,doorbell. He asked for a broom
land volunteered to sweep
-around the garbage container.
,When I poked my head outside
what I saw truly upset me. I was
.angry upset, I was upset because
:what kind of person would just
drive off and leave that much
,garbage beside a person's yard.
I had out-of-town guests this
weekend who told me that they
:have experienced the same thing
:where they live but not to the
:extent as my Saturday morning
embarrassment. I felt ashamed
myself and was ashamed that
my friends saw just how little
care some people around here
have for their own surroundings.
The driver had emptied my con-,


trainer, but had left quite a lot of
my garbage strewn up and down
my street. My garbage was
everywhere except in the truck
being taken to the landfill.
Before I took a picture of it, I
tried calling the City Manager
and Sherrie Taylor (the commis-
sioner for my district). I wanted
them to see what kind of prod-
uct, or non-product, Waste
Management was delivering to
the citizens.
You see, I was not in favor of
privatizing garbage pickup when
it was first brought to the com-
mission. I knew that once it was
out of the hands of the city com-
mission, we were at the mercy
of people who live elsewhere
and could care less whether
garbage was picked up or not. If
something like this had hap-
pened before we went private, I
knew who to call to come out'
and make it right.
Last time I wrote a column
about the poor service, two men
from Waste Management (they
were garbage truck drivers) paid
me a visit about 7 a.m. to tell
me they didn't like what I had
written. in my column. They said
if I had a problem I should have
come to them and not talked
about it in my column.
Well, the truck drivers and


I read something recently that
I found to be very interesting.
Did you know that if a bum-
ble bee lands in a cup, he cannot
get out on his own?
A bumble bee it seems has a
problem with looking up.
They can only see what is
right in front of them, therefore
they will fly around in circles
trying to get out.
But, to no avail.
No matter how hard they hit
the side of the cup, they refuse
to look up.
SIf they were to look up they
would certainly see a way out.
But no, they continue to fly
around in circles until they die
or someone comes along and
sets them free.
Now you understand how that
dead bumble bee in the cup you
left on the porch last fall ended
up there..
You know I am headed some-
where with this and you are,
wondering what a bumble bee
has to with it. .
Well, if you have figured it
out, please keep reading, if not
let me explain..
There is a lot of similarity'
between that bumble bee and the
political turmoil that I see here
in Gadsden County.
It seems that some are des-
tined to continue circling in the
cup.
"It's our turn," seems to be
the tune of the day, but like the
bumble bee they keep on cir-
cling in the cup.
Oh, we might get a few roads
paved or nev\ schools along the
way, but for the most part we
just keep bumping the side of
the cup.
But, the real issues get waxed
over for personal vendettas.
In the five years I've covered
local political meetings I've seen


very little change.
I could almost write the story
before I go to the meetings. It's
simple:.he said, she said--noth-
ing accomplished.
If a court was convened
today, it would be hard-to con-
vict any of our political boards
of having a positive effect on
growth in Gadsden County.
There' is one exception, the
city of Midway.
After years of turmoil, some-
body finally looked up and the
results are easy to see.
It was an eye-opening experi-
ence to look up and finally see
this nice developed commercial
park at their front door.'
The.same commercial park
that the county had controlled
for the past dozen years.
Did they turn it into a toxic
waste dump?
No.
And unlike the county, who
allowed an asphalt plant to be
built, Midway eliminated any
chance of heavy, polluting
industry and now has several
new businesses under construc-
tion.
In addition they have annexed
in thousands of acres of county
land.
Why? Because they looked
up, saw an opportunity and
grabbed it.
You want another reason?
It took over two years and a
lot of hassle to get the Ham-
mock Creek Industrial Park
approved.
Lets put that in, perspective, it
took less that 90 days for Mid-
way to approve and permit, and
for construction to start on a
FritoLay warehouse. Which will
employee 25 people by the way.
At one point I thought we
were going to lose Hammock
Creek, because of the obstacles


anybody else at Waste Manage-
ment can rest assured that I'm
not going to sit outside between
5 a.m. and 7 a.m. to let.them
know I am dissatisfied with the
service.
There have been many days
when every container on my
street has been left lying on its
side. No, children didn't come
along and do this, the driver of
the truck did it. There have been
days that they didn't pick up
garbage at all. It's a short street
but they should pick up the trash
when they're supposed to do it.
, I was told by my neighbor
that these people carry brooms
on the side of the trucks to clean
up mistakes like the one made
last Saturday at my house. But I
guess the driver didn't think my
street worthy of his precious
time to clean up his mess.
Thanks to a good neighbor, the
garbage was cleaned up.
When I complain like this I
almost always get punished by
the people I complain about.
The time I complained about the
Postal Service, they started
delivering my mail after 5 p.m.
I wonder what punishment
the drivers will have for me this
time. The garbage has been
spilled all over, the container
has been left toppled, and there
have been days when there was
no pickup at all. I'm sure they
can think of another little trick
to make my life a tiny bit more
miserable. Only, don't come
back to my house at 7 a.m., I'm
not taking back anything I've
said.


"put in the way.
I remember reporting that one
of the developers threw his
hands up in disgust and said that
Gadsden County had become,
even more difficult than Leon
County. It was not intended as a
compliment, by the way,
That was not the first nor the
last time that I have heard that
said.
Thankfully they were persist-
ent and with the help of then-
Chamber of Commerce director,
Sherrie VanLandingham, we
hung on to the park. There.
will be 17 or 18 new businesses
that will employee hundreds one
day in that park.
Who wins, only everybody.
But no, for whatever reason
some keep on flying around in a
circle chasing vendettas.
As I've said here before, we
have grown by default, not by
positive action.
What we need are leaders that
will step up to the plate and say,
"Let's have a vision for this
community, let's make this a
better place for.everybody to
live and let's work for tomor-
row."
There has been more than
enough of the "my way or the
highway mentality."
Maybe somebody will wake
up and see this money machine
running through our county (I-
10) and say, "Let them help us
pay for better education for our
children or infrastructure for the
growth that is surely headed our
wavy."
* :Certainly someone can see
that industry puts people to
work, not talking just about
industry..
Or does that require looking
up?
I guess if lies and threats
would make a county grow, wve
would be the largest county in
the state.
So in the meantime, some
will emulate the bumble bee and
status quo will be the norm.


I for one plan to watch my
cups. I sure don't want one of
those bees to bite me.

N.O.P.E is ready

Dear Editor: ff I-_" '

Irogres' Energy Coti '.tion is
beginning to take people's land in
the Greensboro area through the use
of the power of eminent' domain.
They are getting ready to ram 85'
tall concrete poles carrying a high
voltage line right through the mid-
dle of town.
This is an issue that effects
everybody in Gadsden County. How
our officials deal with large corpo-
rate entities is important and prece-
dent setting. They are elected to be
the voice of the citizens of this
county and are the only counter-
weight to the power of money.
The town of Greensboro has
gone on record as being opposed to
the route of this powerline. Neigh-
bors Opposed To Progress Energy
(N.O.P.E.) has over 350 people on
its mailing list and won a planning
and zoning fight against the com-
pany, which is why they withdrew
from a County Commission meeting
the night before the meeting was to
'be held. They faxed a letter saying
that it was the opinion of their
lawyers that our elected officials
don't have any say over this power-
line.
Representatives of N.O.P.E. will
appear before the county' commis-
sion on Tuesday, March 15, at 6
p.m. Please attend ifyou can. This is
our county and out government: We
need them to work for us.
Our advice right now to the peo-
ple directly effected.is don't sign a
single thing until you are repre-
sented by a lawyer. It is your right.

Dear Editor,

Let me start at the beginning of
my volunteering state of mind.
In 1991 when the troops of the
P.G. war were coming home from
the Persian Gulf war, I didn't waht
them to feel like I did coming home
from Nam. Talking it over with my
wife, Lee, I was asking who would
or could put a parade together to
welcome our sons and daughters
home. She looked at me and said,
"Well, if you don't at least start try-
ing to do it who else will". So I
started and with the help of a lot of
other vets we had our parade and

It's Time for a Change
Remember this! There will be difficult times in the last days for men will .
be selfish, greedy, boastful, disobedient to parents, violent and fierce,
unthankful, reckless, etc. It's'time to sow to.yourselves in -ighteousness,
reap in mercy, break up your fallow ground; for it is time to seek the Lord
till he comes and rains righteousness upon you (Hosea 10 12 K.J V)I ndi
vidually; but we must remember without faith it is impossible to please him. God, for he
that cometh to God must believe not just come, but cometh continually, must believe that
He is, Hhe is what? believe that he is God and a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.
Are we seeking him? (Heb 11:6 K.J.V.) It's time for a change that they should seek the
Lord, if haily that they might feel after him and find him though he be not far from. every
one of us (Acts 17:27). Seems like the world is seeking and finding everything but God?
It's time for a change. What if the Lord called for us today? The Lord is good unto them
that wait for him, to the soul that seeketh Him (Lamentations 3:25 I.N.V.) for thus saith the
Lord unto the house of Israel. Seek ye me and ye shall live (Amos 5:4 K.J.V.). But if from
'thence that thou shalt seek the Lord thy God thou shall find Him if thou search for Him
with all thy soul, might and strength (Deut. 4:29). The hand of our God is upon all them
for good that seek Him. But His power and His wrath is against all of them that forsake
Him. We still have time to seek Him for ourselves and our youth if we start today.
Tomorrow just might be too late. (Ezra 8:22 K.J.V.) Let us seek the Lord. Be encouraged,
let your request be made known to God. He is still in control. It's time for a change.
Humbly submitted, Florence Bradwell

"Happy Birthday"

A Child Loaned
I'll lend you for a little time a child of Mine," He said,
"For you to love her while she lives, and mourn for when she's dead.
It may be six or seven years or twenty-two or three,
But will you, 'till I call her back, take care of her for Me?
She'll bring her charms to gladden you,
You'll have her lovely memories as solace for your grief."

"I cannot promise she will stay, since all from earth return.
But there are lessons taught down there I wanted this child to learn.
I've looked this wide world over, in my search for teachers true.
And from the throngs that crowd life's lanes, I have selected you.
Now will you give her all your love,
Not think the labor in vain, nor hate Me
When I come to call and take her back again?"

I fancied that I heard them say, "Dear Lord, Thy will be done,
For all the joy Thy child shall bring, the risk of grief we'll run.
We'll shelter her with tenderness, we'll love her while we may,
And for the happiness we've known, forever grateful stay.
But should the angels call for her much sooner than we planned,
We'll brave the bitter grief that comes, and try to understand."

dwelling where drugs are sold and stored.
He is also wanted on charges of armed robbery,
armed kidnapping and battery for the alleged kid-.
napping and robbery of a Chattahoochee man in
December 2003.
Terrance Shorter is charged with felony fighting
or baiting animals, possession with intent to dis-
tribute powdered cocaine and maintaining a
dwelling where drugs are sold and stored.
Also charged along with the brothers was Ter-
rance's girlfriend, Zakiyyah Peterson, 25. She is
charged with obstruction by disguise, a misde-
meanor, because she gave a false name, Nedra
Peterson, to authorities.
When deputies searched the house at 2700
Providence Road, they found dog carriers and
chains, shock collars, dog wound medicine,
cocaine, marijuana, hypodermic needles, various
electronics including a police scanner, and cash.
The Shorters were not easy to get to as officers
had to break down the front door. Once inside
they encountered another barrier of a wooden
door reinforced with metal bars.
Corder said they could hear a toilet flushing just
before Terrance gave himself up in the hallway.
Quintarius was found hiding under a bed. Peter-
son was arrested in another bedroom. Deputies
noticed white powder in the toilet.
"We seized seven pit bull terriers which
appeared to be young. One of them had visible
bite wounds," he said.
Sawdust is located southwest of Quincy about 10
miles from the Quincy city limits. In recent years
the once quiet rural area has become infamous. In
December, 57-year-old William Randall was
arrested and charged with dogfighting and cruelty
to animals. At the time of Randall's arrest 22 pit
bull terriers were found. The animals has been
used obviously for dogfighting. Randall lives
about a halfn-ile from the Shorters.
Randall, whose case is still pending, told inves-
tigators he had. done "strength training" for the
Shorter's dogs, but that he didn't know what hap-
pened to the animals after he gave them back.
Quintarius Shorter is in the county jail without
bond. Terrance Shorter and Peterson have been
released on bond.
Anyone with information about suspicious or
drug information is asked to call Lt. Corder at
875-8847 or 395-4138.



Commission

Continued from Page 1
the original motion should dealt with before the
commission could change the use of the money.


City attorney Jack McLean said that someone
from the prevailing side of the issue could bring
the motion back to the floor. He added that he
thought the motion had carried unanimously.
With that said, Dowdell made the motion to re-
open the original motion,
It was then decided by the board that Dowdell's
request would be taken under advisement and a
workshop to decide the fate of the money would
be set in two weeks. Cook said he wanted
to review Cox's suggestions and Dowdell's
request as his reason for wanting the workshop.
Cox had given the commission several options
including resurfacing Washington Street down-
town, an unpaved portion of Fourth Street,
Dowdell's request, or setting aside the money for
roads at the south side of the city's commerce
park.
In an unrelated matter, Dowdell asked about the
status of the Gadsden Community Hospital's
delinquent utility bill. McLean'responded that he
had been hesitant to pursue any legal action con-
cerning the hospital's bill.
In last month's meeting the hospital bill was dis-
cussed and it was mentioned then that there was
$80,000 outstanding. McLean said he had worked
out a plan for the hospital 18 months ago and that
had been taken care of. His concern was that the
bill was again before the commissioners.
Commissioner 'Sherrie Taylor asked if the
county was a\ are of tle delinquent bill.
City manager Willie Earl Banks said that the
county commission was aware of the problem.
The county has a management agreement with
the current administrators of the hospital. He
added that firm also 'owes the county money. The
hospital building is owned by Gadsden County.
McLean was instructed to contact the hospital
and determine the status of the bill.



Malloy
Continued from Page 1

can't believe her luck. There's so much she
wants to do at the center her words practically
tumble over each other getting out of her mouth.
"My love is outreach and education. My ideas
are running so fast since I've been here, I can
hardly keep up, she said Tuesday afternoon, only
her second day on the job.
Maloy's husband James had landed a dream
position in Quincy at The Printing House. He
was prepared to move and she was prepared to
stay on at the Vero Beach Museum of Art in the
job she also loved. "We were prepared to be a
commuting couple. He would live here during
the week and come home on weekends," she
said. Then along came Hurricane Frances and
the couple came north with their four dogs, three
horses and a cat. The were living in Leon
County at the Phipps Farm with their animals


when she ran across an advertisement in the
newspaper for an executive director in Quincy.
When the couple had a chance to look over
Gadsden County, Maloy said she knew this was
where she wanted to be. "I thought it was beau-
tiful. I always wanted to live in a small town.
This is the prettiest place in the world, I can't
believe I get to live here," she said.
The selection committee interviewed seven
potential candidates for the position and Maloy
was given the offer. She was ready for the chal-
lenge and she was ready to move to Gadsden
County. The couple saw a piece of property they
liked but since Grace didn't have a job at the
time, they were reluctant to make a commitment
to the property.
When she got the job, they also found that the
property they loved was still on the market.
They bought the 35 acres and named it "Dragon-
fly Farm". With the homestead squared away,
Maloy has turned her attention to 13 North
Madison Street.
"By this time next year, I hope to have more
active programs, offer tours for.schools and
adults, I want on-going art appreciation classes,
adult art classes, artists' workshops, drop-in
learning opportunities, more lectures, and main-
tain the quality of the shows here and I can do it.
You see I have a lot of energy," she said. But
Maloy also has what any executive wants and
needs and that is a supportive Board of Directors
and a cadre of volunteers.
"Everyone has been so nice to me and wel-
comed me. The board is so enthusiastic and pos-
itive, and this beautiful building we're in is won-
derful," she said.
She holds a Masters Degree in art education
from the University of Kentucky and a Bache-
lor's Degree in drawing and design from Miami
of Ohio. Behind her desk hangs a large pencil
drawing of horses. "This is my work," she
points out with pride.
If Maloy's track record is any indication of
what she can do here, Gadsden County is in for
an art explosion. While she was at the Vero
Beach Museum of Art the educational programs
grew by 25 percent, the outreach programs grew
by 400 percent, and the center had 83,000 visi-
tors last year.
"I'd love to get a lecture series going here so
more people can learn about art and the humani-
ties. We also have a mission for a permanent
collection here. I believe without art people
don't learn to think and to analyze. Art helps
you become a better problem solver because you
think outside, the box and you find creative ways
of doing things. Arts help in all facets of life,"
she said.
Grace Maloy sees Quincy as, as she puts it "an
arts town. Havana has the antiques, we can have
the arts," she said looking up as if trying to fig-
ure out a way to make it happen.
f anybody can do it; Grace Maloy can.


Two Gadsden


County people die


in separate wrecks


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

Two separate accidents killed two
Gadsden County men last Wednes-
day -and Friday nights. Speed was
the common factor.
A 20-year-old Quincy man,
Shauntel Wilson, was killed and
four passengers were seriously
injured last Wednesda\ night in a
car crash on State Road 65-B, 1.4
miles south of State Road 268,
according to the Florida Highway
Patrol. Wilson was driving a 1990
Mercury Marquis about 8:30 p.m.
when he lost control of the car as he
drove north on SR 65-B, also known
as Old Federal Highway, and was
killed:
Passengers Lesheka Turner, Der-
rick Monroe, Jameka S. Turner, and
Toniece Jefferson, all of Quincy,
were transported to a hospital with
i .


injuries.
Wilson was reportedly driving
fast, entered a sharp curve and skad-
ded off into the west shoulder. N6;
one in the car 'was wearing a sear
belt and alcohol was a factor in the,
crash.
In the Friday night crash, 17-year-
old Fortunato Perez Manuel of,
Greensboro was.killed about 10 25.
p.m. in a one car accident on Staler
Road 267 about 4.7 miles south of,'
Quincy. According to the FHP,
report, Manuel was traveling south-
bound on SR 267 at a high rate of:
speed when the 1994 Chevy van
went off the roadway onto the
shoulder and struck a culvert. The
van overturned several times and,
struck a utility pole. Manuel wa~2
ejected and pronounced dead at the
scene. He was not wearing a seaC
belt and the accident is under inves-
tigation.


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

Last Friday, when police went to
see Hasan Jones, 22, they found
something else. Quincy Police Offi-
cer Michael Graham wrote in an
official report that when he began
talking to Jones, of 1660 Hutchin-
son Ferry Road in Quincy, he
smelled the strong odor of mari-
juana. Jones was wanted in connec-
tion with a robbery and was thought
to be carrying a large amount of
money, according to the report.
When police asked Jones if they
could search his car he replied, "I'd


rather you not." Acting on reason-
able suspicion, officer Graham con-
ducted awalk around search of the
car with his K9 partner Cody. The
dog was alerted to the driver's door
of the vehicle and a search re\ ealed
a small zip locked bag of maiijuana
and a set of weigh scales. Also
located in the vehicle were two
sums of money, one under the pas-
senger seat and another in a pocket
made into the front part of the driver
seat. :
Jones was charged with possession
of marijuana and for drug parapher,4
nalia. He was booked into the
county jail.

14 Gadsden County Times March 10, 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'llget you pre-approved,
tell you what it will cost and buy it for you.
We appreciate you're supporting us. Come
by or call.

We sell all of our cars at

Octavius Safford fights for footing and for possession of the
around Safford' arm.


'Final


Jacksonville Ribault used their depth and
captured a 75-67 win over East Gadsden last
Friday night in the Region I Class 3A finals at
the Jaguar Gym.
East Gadsden jumped to a 9-0 lead in the
game before Ribault went on an 11-0 run.
Before the first period ended Ribault lead 19-
13 and it was pretty much catch-up the rest of
the game for the Jaguars.
Octavius Safford led East Gadsden with 26
points and his jumper with 29 seconds to go in
the game got the Jaguars within 4. East Gads-
den was then called for an intentional foul
allowing Ribualt to lengthen their lead.
Brandon Bryant added 20 points for East
Gadsden. The team finished 22-9 in Dimitric
Salters first year.
"I wish we were still playing." Salters said.
"But I can't.fault our effort. We played hard
against a tough team." "I learned a lot my first
year and I'm looking forward to next season."

HIGH SCHOOL SEASON
IS OFFICIALLY OVER


The high school basketball sea-


Monsignor Pace

downs East Gadsden;

Lady Jaguars

eliminated in

state semi-finals


2B Gadsden County Times March 10, 2005


, by Joe Ferolito
From the start the East Gadsden Lady Jaguars never
had an answer for Monsignor Pace and the number one
FHSAA Class 3A girl's basketball team pushed their
way to a 63-31 win in the Florida finals semi-final game
last Wednesday in Lakeland.
"It looked like we had a case of stage fright from the
start." Lady Jaguar coach Rod Glenn said.
"I have to hand it to them they looked like the number
one team, and they were very athletic, but we also did-
n't play very well."
The out come of the game was almost evident in the
first 4 minutes. Pace held only a 9-3 lead but the Lady


officially over for Gadsden High
School teams.
The East Gadsden girls lost to Pace
of Miami in the State's Class 3A
semi-finals last Wednesday.
The East Gadsden boys did not get
to follow the girl's to state getting
eliminated by Jacksonville Ribault
last Saturday night.
Tallavana got an invite to the
National Christian Athlete Tourna-
ment in Tennessee and did them-
selves proud before losing out.


Spartans had already out rebounded East Gadsden 11-1.
When the shots started falling Pace was well on their
way to their 20th win this year.
Not only did the Lady Spartans control the boards
they also played defense all over the court and con-
stantly aggravated the Lady jaguars into bad floor play
and bad shot selection.
East Gadsden scored only 6 points in each of the first
two quarters and trailed by 27-12 at the half.
The biggest aggravator for Pace was 6 foot senior
Marquita Adley a very athletic center who scored 21
points and ripped off 14 rebounds in the game. Guard
Jameela Haynes added 16 for the Lady Spartans who
also got 8 points each from Whitney Fields and Tibitha


re-adapt for two years. Then it's
change time again. But that's
expected with our state's continued
growth and the addition of private
schools.
The private school issue still
comes up and it will continue to be
a problem for the FHSAA. A solu-
tion that pleases everybody is an
impossibility. It's an issue that
won't go a\\aS. him the Jaguar track
program is in good hands.


Turner.
Chelsea McMillan accounted for over half the East
Gadsden total as the 6-3 sophomore scored 16 battling
her way inside for her total.
Pace went on to win the state title as they knocked
down Orlando bishop Moore 57-34 in the finals Satur-
day.
"We had a good year and got this far with a pretty
young team." Glenn said. The Lady jaguars finished 24-
5 and won their region, giving them the region title for
both years the school has been in session.
"We'll be back." Said McMillan. "Our team learned
some things and we'll be working to make it to state
again."

ment were the members of the May Nursery Team From left to right: John

Wil was hoping for a victory in the

Instead, he and Reggie Worthington


from Bonifay, took second place,
winning Classic rope bags and
money.
But for Wil, that wasn't enough.
He entered up again for Saturday's
#6 preliminary roping with Jessie
West from Crawfordville, and they
took the first place spot, winning
Wrangler NTRL belt buckles, and
money.
Wil's winnings for the weekend
including cash and prizes was
$4,780. There's a high school
rodeo in which Wil will be partici-
pating coming to
Cairo, Ga, Saturday, March 5 at

Progress Energy
to return more
than $9 million
to customers

Progress Energy Florida will return
more than $9 million to its customers
as part of the revenue-sharing provi-


sion in the company's current rate
agreement. A Progress Energy resi-
dential customer using 12,000-kilo-
watt hours (or averaging 1,000 kWh)
over one calendar year will receive a
one-time credit of about $3.36 on the
March 2005 electric bill.
Progress Energy's current rate
agreement took effect May 1, 2002,
and expires at year-end 2005. The
agreement reduced the company's


base rates to a level similar to those
from 1983 through an annual $125
million reduction. In addition, the
company agreed to refund of two-
thirds of its revenues when they ex-
ceed a pre-determined threshold
each year. Customers will have
saved $500 million over the life of
.the agreement.
Progress Energy Florida, a sub-
sidiary of Progress Energy (NYSE:


PGN), provides electricity and relat-
ed services to more than 1.5 million
customers in Florida. The company
is headquartered in St. Petersburg,
Fla., and serves a territory encom-
passing over 20,000 square miles in-
cluding the cities of St. Petersburg
and Clearwater, as well as the Cen-
tral Florida area surrounding Orlan-
do.
