Girlfriend

charged with

manslaughter

by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
When 19-year-old Anthony James
Stevens left East Gadsden High
School Friday afternoon, his class-
mates and friends didn't know it
would be the last time they would
see him alive. Early Saturday
evening Stevens was stabbed just
below the heart with a mushroom
knife while in his yard. He died a
few hours later at Tallahassee
Memorial Hospital.
Later Saturday night Stevens' girl-
friend, 21-year-old Anderia Aleshia
Belvis, was charged with
manslaughter and arrested. Her
bond was set at $5,000 which she
posted, and she was released from
jail Sunday morning.
Stevens' parents and other family
members are upset that Belvis' bail
was, so low and that the charges
were not harsher. "For what she did,
it should have been more than that.
All she had to do was put up $500
for killing my son," the Rev. James
Stevens said. Belvis was charged
with manslaughter because the
crime was not premeditated.
"We didn't know she was going to
get out of jail. They never told us
anything. They never even came out
here where it (the stabbing) hap-
pened. It's like they took her word


for everything and left us out," said
his father, the Rev. James Stevens.
He said he was told by the investi-
gator assigned to the case from the
Gadsden County Sheriff's Office
that he had enough information.
Stevens' brother, James, said
Belvis dropped him off at the fam-
ily's home on Hines Road Saturday
afternoon. He came into the house
and handed me the baby and put
some packages down. Then he said
he forgot and left the Pampers in the
car. By this time Anderia had
already driven off. He grabbed the
phone and called her and she came
back about two or three minutes
later," he said.
James said he did not hear the cou-
ple argue, but said a few minutes
after his brother went outside he
came back into the house and said
"she stabbed me." James Stevens
rushed his son to Gadsden Commu-
nity where he was taken by Life-
Flight to TMH.
Belvis told authorities that Stevens
was "grabbing her by her braids as,
she was sitting in her vehicle." She
told deputies that she asked Stevens
if she could "go out" but didn't indi-
cate that as the reason for the argu-
ment. According to the report,
Belvis said that Stevens was half
inside her tan Chevrolet Malibuq
through the window and that she.
"grabbed a mushroom knife with
her right hand and stabbed" Stevens.
When deputies arrived at Belvis'
Omega Villas apartment, the bloody
knife was still in the car.
Stevens was a senior at East Gads-

Morris Young, elected sheriff in Nov. 2004,
worked at keeping one of his campaign promises
last Saturday. In an afternoon meeting he met and
talked with families of the 16 victims who make
up the county's roster of unsolved murders from
1973 to.2004.
Four investigators from the Florida Department
of Law Enforcement (FDLE)have been sent to
help with the cases. "The sheriff wanted us to
make sure that the families knew what was going
on. I know you have a lot of questions. This is a
very emotional time, but the information that you
are going to give us will be very important,"
Major Shawn Wood, of the Gadsden County
Sheriff's Office, told the families.
Wood explained that, although the crimes may
have happened many years ago, there is new
hope with the technology that has been devel-
oped. "We will look at evidence that has already
been looked at, because there are new data bases
available now that forensically were not available
then," said Barb McGraw of the FDLE.
Wood cautioned families that while there is a
lot of new technology available at their disposal,
it will still take hard work and persistence to
break the cases. "I know a lot of you watch tele-
vision, but CSI (the popular show about crime
scene investigators) is a television show and this

Trio arrested for


electricity scheme


by BYRON SPIRES
Times Staff Writer
Three local men have been
arrested in an electricity-stealing
scheme that got short-circuited.
Charles Davis, 43, Terrance D.
Marshall, 34, and Michael Robin-
son, 44, face charges of fraud/tam-
pering with utilities. Davis and
Robinson face additional charges of
theft of utilities.
According to a report filed by the
Quincy Police Department, city
employee Michael Robinson and
former city employee Marshall are
alleged to have altered city electric-
ity meters.


The reports state that the meters
were removed and fixed in such a
way as to not register electricity
usage. In addition the pair turned on
electricity at residents' homes that
had been previously been cut off.
The scheme included going into
the meters and changing their read-
ings to represent lower usage
amounts.
The report said that the going rate
for a meter to get the electricity back
on was $100 and to lower the utility
cost varied from $40 to whatever
was left for the adjustment. Since
the city rotates their readers each

County attorney lobbies for Progress Energy


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

Clay VanLandingham made it
clear that he was speaking as a pri-
vate citizen whose property will be
affected if Progress Energy is
allowed to have a power line
through Greensboro. At the end of
his presentation to the Board of
County Commissioners in opposi-
tion to the utilities company, he
directed some comments to the
county's attorney. Thornton
Williams.
"Attorney Williams has vast
experience in the area of eminent
domain and utilities law. Mr.
Williams is a lobbyist for the
Florida Power Electric Group but I
hope he would represent this board
'and citizens," he said.
"Progress Energy is a member of


Thornton Williams


the Florida Power Electric Group. I
request that you divest yourself of
interest in Progress Energy," Van-
Landingham said.
Williams' firm, Williams Wilson
& Sexton, P.A., list as their clients
Florida Electric Power Coordinat-
ing Group, Inc., and Florida Relia-
bility Coordinating Council, Inc.
The Florida Electric Power Coordi-


nating Group, Inc. (FCG) is the
umbrella organization in the State
of Florida which represents
investor-owned utilities, rural elec-
tric cooperatives, and municipal
electric utilities on environmental
and transportation issues affecting
the utility industry. The FCG has
been in existence since 1976 and
currently has 31 members. Progress
Energy Florida is a member.
VanLandingham also pointed out
that Williams is listed in the Florida
House of Representatives as a lob-
byist for FCG and the Gadsden
County Commission.
"You are held in high regard by
your peers Mr. Williams, I hope you
will represent the citizens of this
county since you are the county
attorney," VanLandingham said.
Williams had no comment dur-
ing the meeting.


Elias, Dowdell want changes to QuincyFest


by BYRON SPIRES
Times Staff Writer

Will there be a QuincyFest pres-
:ents Blues and Bar-B-Que in down-
town Quincy, May 14th?
That was the debate at Tuesday
.night's special called Quincy city
commission meeting.
Mayor Derrick Elias had stated
,at last week's regular commission
-meeting that plans presented for the
-upcoming event did not represent
what he had envisioned for Quin-
:cyFest.
QuincyFest committee co-chairper-
;son Alice DuPont explained at that
meeting that the event would start
-this year as a Blues and Bar-B-Que
'with plans of a larger event next
year. The committee had wanted to
start with a smaller event. Plans are
:for a Bar-B-Que competition with
cash prizes in three categories:
chicken, ribs and pork. In addition
there will be regional blues artists
performing during the all day affair.
There are several Bar-B-Que
"events held around the country
every year with winners in regional
events working their way to
national cook-offs. The committee
'had hopes that by starting as a small


event it would build momentum
into being one of the stepping
stones on the way to a national
event.
Elias stated at the special called
meeting that he was concerned that
local residents would be excluded
from being allowed to set up vend-
ing booths on the square. He wanted
it open to local vendors
According to DuPont any vendor
'that will participate in the event will
need to adhere to the county's
health regulations, including a tax
number and food service inspec-
tions. Vendors will also be required
to attend a workshop a week before
the event.
Elias said he did not have a prob-
lem with local vendors meeting the
regulations, he wanted local ven-
dors included in the event and not
just limit them to Bar-B-Que.
City building and planning direc-
tor Arlene Houston, a member of
the event committee, told the com-
missioners that there were a limited
number of volunteers that were
available to help put on the event.
That, she said, was the reason to
start with a small event.
The idea she said was to build a
reputation for the next year. She


added that the committee had plans
of meeting as soon as the May 14th
event was over to start planning for
next year's event.
Commissioner Finley Cook liked
what the committee had presented
and wanted to leave the details of
the event in the hands of the com-
mittee. "I'm excited that we are
having something going on," Cook
said.
Commissioner Sherrie Taylor
said she understood Elias' concerns
and she agreed with Cook's com-
ment as well. But, she added that
requirements should have been in
place in the early stages of the plan-
ning. She said that the committee
was a good group of people and
should be allowed to move forward
with their plans.
Commissioner Keith Dowdell,
however, had a different opinion.
Dowdell wanted the name Quin-
cyFest removed from the title of the
event.
His reasoning was that the event
did not represent the city of Quincy.
He referred to events now being
held in Monticello (watermelon)
and Thomasville (rose).

No money for mayoral conference


by BYRON SPIRES
Times Staff Writer

Gretna city commissioners will
not be going to the National Con-
ference of Black Mayors this year,
at least at the city's expense.
Commissioners held a special
called meeting last week to decide
if the city would pay for the con-
ference.
Gretna recently completed its
2001 audit and the state released
the city's state tax revenue money.
The money was being held until
the city completed its delinquent
audit.
Commissioner Helen Franks
was opposed to the trip. "I would
like to go, but the city cannot
afford it now," Franks said.
She added that it would look
bad to spend money on a trip just
as the money was being released
from the state.
Commissioner Nadine Smith
agreed with Franks.
Smith said she had been against
the city commissioners giving
themselves a $4,000 raise in this
year's budget and suggested that
anyone wanting to take the trip
could use their raise money to do
so. Smith added that she did not
Stake the additional raise.
According to interim city man-
:ager Diane Formman the trip had


a price tag of between $6,000 and
$8,000.
Commissioner David Sailor
defended the need to make the trip
and said that commissioners don't
normally take but one trip and felt
that the trip would be beneficial to
Gretna.
Sailor said that the trip offered
the commissioners an opportunity
to meet with other communities
facing some of the same problems
as Gretna faced and learn how
they were dealing with those prob-
lems.
Mayor Earnest Barkley, agreed
with Sailor and added that the trip
had been budgeted in this year's
budget. Barkley said it would be
an opportunity for commissioners
to find out what money was out
there available for small cities like
Gretna.
Franks took exception to the
idea of spending money for the
trip and said she intended to write
the Governor's office if the
motion passed.
Sailor made a motion to take
the trip.
"I just don't see where it will
be of any help," Commissioner
Jarvis Alls said. He added, "As
bad as I would like to go--I just
don't see that."
The motion died for the lack of
a second.

Pi and pies celebrated

at Crossroads Academy


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

Students at Crossroads Academy.
were eager to show off their projects
Monday. It was International Pi Day
and like students all over the world
pi was the center of attention. In one
class they were making pi neck-
laces, in another they students had
constructed a pi quilt made of paper,
others hovered over lap top comput-
ers hunting for more digits to pi.
International Pi Day is a day
when mathematicians and those
interested in mathematics all over
the world spend the day ;searching
for more digits of pi.
Pi is used in mathematics to rep-
resent the ratio of the circumference
of a circle to the diameter, the
numerical value of which is 3.14.
"That's why we celebrate pi on
March 14," said Inez Holt, coordi-
nator. "The students are encouraged
to engage in activities relating to the
ratio of 3.14," she added.


All over the school students were
talking about pi. Arlesha Sheffield
and Shanice Preston, both fifth
graders, were practicing their pres-
entation to be made later in the
school day. Inside Brandon Clay-
ton's class a group of students were
making glass bead necklaces based
on the pi formula. They prepared the
beads using a chart with the digits
corresponding to a color. The col-
ored beads were then strung on jew-
elry wire according to the chart. In
the end each student kept the neck-
lace and one was made to present to
the class.
Genesis Diaz, Nairobi Robinson,
both sixth graders, and their teacher
Tiarra Taylor showed off their paper
quilt. Each panel showed another
use or aspect of pi.
Even the pre-K class got in on
the celebration of pi. "We had them
to sort buttons according to color
and size and they decorated the pi
symbol with their buttons," Holt
said.


Sixth grade teacher Tiarra Taylor left, and students Genesis Diaz, and
Niarobi Roberinson show off the Pi quilt photo by Alice DuPont


"The students have been very
creative. Some of them came up
with pi poetry, pi songs, pi rap, com-
puter pi games, the history of pi as
told in a story, one of our students
has memorized up to 60 digits of pi
and he's going to recite them later,"
said Millie Forehand, principal.
Holt said students are learning to
analyze data having, anything to do
with pi and the frequency of the dig-
its. She said Pi Day started when


mathematicians from around the
world met to try to discover a pat-
tern in the pi digits.
Parents of the students at the
academy were not left out of the pi
celebration. Their participation was
based on the p-i-e pie, not the p-i, pi.
Forehand said parents were asked to
.donate pies for the students to share
at the end of the day. "We had about
32 pies donated...that's pretty
good," she said.

Calmly and methodically Clay
VanLandingham and Bill Hoatson,
two members of Neighbors Oppos-
ing Progress Energy (N.O.P.E.)
came before the Board of County
Commissioners at its regular meet-
ing Tuesday night to give what they
termed "an update on Progress
Energy."
Hoatson reminded commission-
ers that Progress Energy Florida's
proposed high voltage transmission
line in Gadsden County was pulled
from the agenda less than 24 hours
before they were to appear before
the commission for approval of the
Atwater Road substation. "On July
25, 2004, Progress Energy cancelled
a meeting with less than 24 hours
notice and rescheduled for Oct. 14,
2004. The Town of Greensboro
passed a resolution saying they
wished the powerline was anywhere

,rt 'f !


else but through the center of the
City Of Greensboro.
"We need to stand up
and
enforce what the people
of Gadsden County
want"

Clay VanLandingham

While the Atwater substation
was turned down, Hoatson said the
only reason for the route that has
been selected by the company is
because they don't want to be regu-
lated by any governmental body.
"They've taken away the substation
because all they really want is the
(power) line," Hoatson said.
VanLandingham said the com-
pany has been buying properties in
Greensboro and many people do not
know what they are signing. "I have


heard that some people got as little
as $5,000 and some got up to
$13,000," he said, after the meeting.
"We are one of the few, rural
counties remaining. We need to
stand up and enforce what the peo-
ple of Gadsden County want. They
need to take into consideration what
the people of this county want," he
said.
He said he would be affected
negatively by Progress Energy
because they can do as they please
once they get the transmission lines.
"As long as they stay in existing
rights of way, they are exempt." He
said once the company gets what
they want they can erect towers and
sell space to telecommunications
companies and there is nothing the
county or the citizens can do about
it.
Progress Energy will not even
allow property owners to grow trees
tinle Lb th', are citrus trees. "I have
pl- li rII.. : .I 1 _.-- ll I-'. ,:- .._u l ,,.1


I can't plant any more because it
will interfere with them and what
they want to do," VanLandingham
said.
He told commissioners that a
high voltage line is not essential to
the needs of the people of the
county. "A lot of people are going to
be affected by this power line. I'm
giving up 60 feet of my property, if
I sign this easement. They will have
the right to remove trees 20 feet
from the right of way. There are
eminent domain and utilities law
issues which will be coming before
this body," he said.
In other matters, commissioners
were told by County Attorney
Thornton Williams that he reviewed
the 8-month severance package for
former county Howard McKinnon
and it is legal. "I recommend that
the severance pay for an additional
four months be awarded to the for-
mer county ,manager," Williams
said.


Local courtroom security addressed


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

Even before last week's incident
in the Atlanta courtroom, plans were
in the works to beef up courtroom
security in the Second Judicial Dis-
trict, of which Gadsden County is a
member.
"We began addressing this about
two months ago," said Grant Slay-
den, court administrator for this judi-
cial circuit Slayden met Monday
afternoon with Major James Morgan
of the Gadsden County Sheriff's
Office to discuss how the county
planned to meet the May 31 deadline
for added security.
"Something has to be done, we
want to speed up," Slayden said.
Violence most often occurs, he said,
in felony and family court. "We


don't worry to much about traffic
court or small claims court. It's when
people may be losing their families,
be force to pay alimony, or are going
to jail that violence occurs," he said.
Maj. Morgan said the security
systems are in place but they need to
be used. "We have to screen visitors
to make sure the courtrooms are
weapon free. Our bailiff's will need
to be trained in panic alarms and tak-
ing away weapons. We already have
special holsters that can't be easily
taken off," he said.
He said the sheriff's office is
interested in making the courtrooms
safer and security tighter for the citi-
zens. "We don't want citizens afraid
to come to the courtrooms because
they don't feel safe," Slayden said,
adding, "it's a balance of security
and accessibility.

10-20-LIFE

Dear Editor,

I wish I could run a poll on the
families of victims all over the
country. I understand the law of
Florida to state if you use a gun dur-
ing a crime...you should expect the
10-20 gun law to be part of the sen-
tencing. You would expect such, but
guess what! The lawmakers, state
attorneys read the law to their bene-
fit. The nian that sho' y' -on rdid
not receive but SIX years ith a,
promise of pai ing $100.00 restitu-
ition for the rest of my son's life
when he gets out. Wow, my son's
financial problems should come to a
halt with that to look forward to.
Mr. Webb was sentenced to six
years with a possibility of getting
out in 4 years 6 months if he plead
guilty to attempted second degree
murder. His, plea states that he
admits guilt but was not in posses-
sion of a firearm! How did my son
get shot and become paralyzed for
life then?!?!
I wonder, how many "deals" are
made that seem unfair and uncon-
stitutional....I wonder how many
black men are in prison for life for
armed robbery? When the white
man shoy my son, I told the state
attorneys office that I had to stay out
of it because I needed to focus on
my son living.Period.
I am writing this to let you know
from a personal point that I feel an
injustice has gone down silently and
the 10-20 gun law that we watch on
t:v. is false advertisement.

Dear Editor:

March is national Mental Retar-
dation Awareness Month.Unaware
to most, there are approximately
1'70 million people with intellectual
disabilities worldwide, and more
than 7 million in the United States,
many in our own communities.
r Through Special Olympics, we
serve over one million athletes with
intellectual disabilities in more than
1;60 countries providing year-round
sports training and competition in
26 Olympic-type summer and win-
ter sports. Yet to reach the millions
who could benefit from this pro-
gram, we need the help of many
more volunteers and contributors.
We see the abilities not the limi-
tations of people with intellectual
disabilities. This month, Special
Olympics Florida athletes traveled
t' Nagano, Japan for the 2005
World Winter Games. The motto
of the Games was Celebrate
Together, words that Floridians
seem to have already embraced. Cit-

It's not clear why, maybe
because they get out more.
Maybe dating is allowed a little

like date rape. The safest thing
to remember is that "no means
no." Don't even try to figure it

by joining forces with Publix Super-
markets to raise over $1.1 million
dollars for Special Olympics Florida
in the month of January. This sup-
port helps make Special Olympics a
reality for more people than ever
before.
While everyone can benefit from
sports, for our athletes there are also
clinical benefits like health and fit-
ness and self-esteem and greater
social adjustment. But at the end of
the day, Special Olympics is an
environment \\heie peopleni'th
nmtellcCi.l id;iabilitie can be suc-
cessful and where parents can be
proud of their children. That's no
small feat given the amount of prej-
udice and discrimination that most
of our athletes face on a day-to-day
basis.
By participating in Special
Olympics, people with intellectual
disabilities have gained the self-
confidence and social skills to suc-
ceed both on and off the playing
field: individuals once thought bur-
dens to society are proving them-
selves productive citizens.

brates differences and embraces
acceptance and understanding, call

FCAT woes

Dear Editor:

After reading your "Contempla-
tions" article in the February 24,
2005, edition, I felt the need to make
a few comments regarding your
remarks and question. However, I
think your opening statement, "I'm
not a teacher and I don't know the
new tricks of the education trade,"
may be the answer to your question.
For sometime now African Amer-
ican children have been negatively
stereotyped and in my opinion, the
target of educational genocide. Mass
media: newspapers, television, radio,
magazines and journals have all
taken the negative approach of por-
traying African American children as
the "dummies" of society not to
mention African American people as
a whole. Personally, I think African
American children have been given a
bad rap when it comes to education
as juvenile justice. By no means am
I insinuating we don't have some
serious problems. But, if it sounds as
if I'm trying to make justification or
come to their aid, I am. To be honest,
I was hoping and praying someone
would respond to your article on

force.
In the past three weeks, five
people have died as the result of
automobile accidents in our
county. Most of them have been
young people. I know you have ,
no control over how fast they
drive when they leave home, but
please remind them to take the
three seconds to buckle up and
to leave the alcohol alone while
driving.
Police officers and the
Florida Highway Patrol will tell
you that one of the hardest
things to do is break the news to
parents that their son or daugh-
ter has been killed in an automo-
bile accident. How it happened
doesn't ease the pain of a child
whose life has been cut short.


behalf of the children, but to no
avail.
Why are African American chil-
dren failing the FCAT? I can't hon-
estly say but I think the answer to the
question has multiple reasons and no
one thing or person can be the sole
cause or source to rectify the
GRAND problem. However, I do
feel my elementary school principal
and dear friend Mr. Julius Fisher's
motto, "there's nothing wrong with
children today that good parenting
can't take care of," is possibly the
nucleus to solving many of our prob-
lems. Bottom-line, what we desper-
ately need today is for the media
world to begin a positive campainon
publishing more of the GOOD rather
than which is BAD; instead of pub-
lishing, writing and broadcasting
how many children failed the FCAT
(i.e., 40% of the class failed the
FCAT)- communicate the number of
those who passed (i.e., 60% of the
class passee the FCAT); instead of
puiblil.hng the percentage of those
who scored low in math, writing and
English(40% of the class scored
below the state average); publish the
percentage. of those who scored
above the state and national average
(i.e., 45% of the class scored above
the state average of 15% of the class
scored above the national average).
Positive information has always
been a motivating and intriguing tool
which generates enthusiasm and
encourages one to do and be better.
So, if it takes calling upon sanitation
workers, laborers, ministers, rappers,
singers, comedians, handicap, moti-
vational speakers, coaches, teachers,
principles, professional athletes,
celebrities, disable, mayors, judges,
attorneys, former drug dealers or
addicts, to motivate and instill in our
children the importance of studying
and passing test to become better
students, let the show being. In this
day and time we need to pursue
whatever it takes to save our chil-
dren. With that being said, I totally
agree with your comment one must
be responsible and committed before
they can pass a test, but before all to
that, I say, put God before, between,
and at the end of everything you do.
In regards to the motivational
speaker, I "think" motivational
speakers who talk about their life
struggles, trials and tribulations are,
simply put, disciples. We have to be
mindful the Bible teaches us that tes-
timonies are often times all we need
to hear inorder for us to change our
attitude and the way we think, act,
react and respond, which ultimately
alludes to perseverance, prosperity
and success.
The reality question is, if African
American children are doing so
poorly on test, why are so many col-
leges and universities filled with
record numbers of freshmen; and
why are so many freshmen being
turned away due to over crowded-
ness? When we seriously contem-
plate the matter one would have to
question the validity of all the infor-
mation the media is portraying. Ulti-
mately, we must realize sSatan is and
will be constantly trying to defile
those who are trying to make a dif-
ference and as far as the African
American children are concerned,
we should be praising and recogniz-
ing those who are holding the torch


before coming to Quincy.
I'm not saying that we look
alike, but I noticed at lunch we
got a lot of stares.
I think I overheard someone
saying that the three of us sitting
together reminded him of three
beached whales.
Harry, Randy and my brother
Eddie have embarked on a quest
to find out about our heritage.
It seems they have found some
of our long-lost cousins up in the
McCrae, Georgia area.
We have a Spires family web
site Eddie oversees and some of
our new-found cousins have
started visiting the site.
It is a great site by the way
and has become a clearing house
for some of our family history.
Some of our distant kin folks
have put pictures of their family
members on the site and I was
surprised to see the resemblance


between Harry and Randy and
our Middle Georgia kin.
Eddie said he wasn't sure
were the kin comes in at, but he
thinks it's back about three or
four grandfathers.
That being the case, our
branch of the family split off
about the time of the Revolution-
ary War from the bunch in
McCrae.
Add in the fact that most men
during those days had at least
one wife to die during childbirth
and remarried. Most of my
grandfathers raised two families.
The truth is that we are proba-
bly kin to half of the state of
Georgia. Tracking all of that
down is too mind boggling for
me, so I'm going to let Harry,
Randy and Eddie figure out who
is related to who.
SWith all of these new relatives
and no way to designate exactly
what generation of cousins they
would fall into . You know,
like 15th cousin twice removed
kinda stuff.
Harry said they were "kissin'
cousins."
I'm just thankful Harry and I
are first cousins.


Parents can make the difference


By Rita T. Carter, Ph.D.
School Psychologist
Gadsden County Schools


Spring is in the air and the beauti-
ful weather and the beauty of nature
this time of year makes it hard for
children to focus on school tasks.
It is prime time for spring fever.
Now is the time for parents to part-
ner with teachers and schools to help
children focus and stay engaged in
learning and school. Children need
to focus for there is still much to be
done.
Much of the testing is completed,
and children may feel lit is not as
important to focus; however, there is
another grading period ahead, and
there is still the question of promo-
tion and retention.
At this time of year parents are
very much needed to help children to
keep the end in mind and it is the
parent that can make the difference!
As the first and most important
teacher, parents can help children to
focus and to make the spring a sea-
son focused on learning.
One of the most powerful things
. parents can do is to speak positively
about school and not become weary
themselves. Parents are encouraged
to use the power of the spoken word
to encourage and help children.
When parents continue to focus on
school and monitor study habits,
children will continue to stay
focused on school tasks.
It is also important that parents
remain enthusiastic about school.
Renewed and continued enthusiasm
will help parents and students con-
tinue in activities such as studying
and homework. Such enthusiasm in
parents will most likely show up in


children! Parents are also encour-
aged to praise their children's efforts
Sand continued focus on school tasks.
Parents must also keep their
expectations high as a tool in keep-
ing children focused. Paents must
not allow children to think or act as
if school is out! Yes, the major test-
ing season is over, but the learning
and the need for children to focus
continues. Parents must help chil-
dren remember that there is still
much at stake. Children must be
encouraged in their continued effort
and work and understand that the
learning continues and is directly
related to continued good grades,
promotion, graduation and college
considerations.
Parents can make positive con-
nections with the focus on learning
when they continue to be reading
role models. When parents read and
children see such, they will continue


to read as well.
Parents are also encouraged to
stay involved and supportive of their
children's schools. Contact with the
schools and teachers will also serve
double duty by letting children know
that parents are still concerned about
their progress. In addition, the
schools and teachers need to know
that the parents are still on the team
and supporting .the schools' pro-
grams of progress and success for all
children.
Spring is a beautiful time of the
year, but it can be hard for all to
focus on work rather than the beauty
around. It is easier for adults to enjoy
and continue; however, it may not be
as easy for children. Parents can
make all the difference when they
continue to be positive, enthusiastic,
good role models for reading and
make positive connections with their
children and their schools!

I had a visit last week from
my cousins Harry and Randy
Spires.
We are first cousins and our
fathers were brothers. In other
words the three of us are about as
Spires as you can get.
And both Harry and Randy are
namesakes of their Dads.
My Dad broke the family trait
and didn't name me Clouden.
I will always be thankful for
that by the way. It has been hard
enough being a Byron, I can't
imagine being called Clouden.
To be truthful I really can't
remember him ever being called
that. Family and friends referred
to him as C.L.
Back to Harry and Randy.
We went to lunch. Actually I
went to lunch, they just. sat and
watched me. Seems they had
been to one of those breakfast
bars in Tallahassee and loaded up

It's Time for a Change
Thank you Lord for one more day. We realize that it is just one day at a lince
Dear Lord, please continue to have mercy on us all. Help us to keep our
focus on Jesus. God is still in control regardless of what Satan tries to pro.e
He is only trying to deceive men and women, boys and girls. Revelation 20 7
states after the thousand years are over, Satan will be loose from his prison
and he will go out to deceive the nations scattered all over the world. Can we see him at work
everywhere? They spread out over the camp. The people of God and the city that he loves,
then the Devil, who deceived them was thrown into the lake of fire and sulphur. They will be
tormented day and night forever. Let us not be deceived by Satan. He will be in the same
lake of fire with those he deceived. It's time for a change. Let us continue to intercede for our
youth. They need our help. They are precious and needed in a time like this. We have our
work to do right down here. We must hold fast to our faith God's word never fails, nor does
it change. God alone can change conditions we face today. We must remember what hap-
pened to the children of Israel. They all came out of Egypt under the cloud, past the Red Sea
on dry land. They were all baptized, all ate the same food, drank the same spiritual waterfrom
the spiritual rock which was Christ Jesus. All, not some, but all. Lord save us all, forgive us
all. But with some God was not well pleased. He allowed lives to be lost even for just mur-
muring and fumbling. Keep our minds on Jesus. God was not well pleased with their life style,
but what about today? I wonder if we are pleasing God according to his word? It's time for a
change.
Humbly submitted, Florence Bradwell

Galloway, Harrell Wedding


Antonio Galloway and Kim-
berly Harrell of Greensboro were
married March 5, 2005 at the St.
Luke Baptist Church at 5 p.m. in
Sawdust. The ceremony was per-
formed by Rev. Charles F. Ash Sr.,
pastor of St. Luke Baptist Church.
The bride is a native of Sawdust and
a. 1995 graduate of James A. Shanks
and 2002 graduate of Chipola Junior
College, majoring in Criminal Jus-
tice. She is presently attending the
Lively Technical Center in Tallahas-


see studying for an LPN. She is cur-
rently as a Unit Treatment Rehabili-
tation Specialist for the Chatta-
hoochee Department of Children
and Families. She is the daughter of
Dupree and Ruby Harrell. The
groom is a native of Greensboro and
is a 1991 graduate of Greensboro
High School. He is currently
employed as a custodial worker for
the Gadsden County School Board
in Quincy. He is the son of Rose
Mary Robinson of Greensboro.


Hannah Pope and Mary Jane Milam

The apprentices at
Hospice
The Gadsden County office of
Big Bend Hospice has its very own
apprentice volunteers. Mary Jane
Milam, age 10 and Hannah Pope,
age 5 are our youngest apprentices.
Mary Jane spent an entire Saturday
helping at the Havana Pumpkinfest
in October and then helped at the
Service of Remembrance and
always offers comic relief if a situa-
tion becomes too serious.
Mary Jane recently was required
to do a speech at school. While most
of the children wrote about Christ-
mas break, their dogs or friends,
Mary Jane wrote about Hospice.
Mary Jane was disappointed when
she received an 85 for her work,
because her teacher felt the subject
was, "too sad." Her mom, Tina
Milam and her Hospice team.could-
n't be prouder that Mary Jane is
starting so young to care about her
community. Although Mary Jane
may only be 10, it's doubtful she
will ever hear the words "you're
fired!"

FIRST PUBLIC HEARING NOTICE FOR THE CITY OF QUINCY COMMUNITY
DEVELOPMENT BLOCK GRANT (CDBG) PROGRAM
FFY 2005/2006

The City of Quincy is considering applying to the Florida Department of Community Affairs (DCA) for a FFY
2005/2006 Small Cities Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) of up to $750,000.

These funds must be used for one of the following 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 particular 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 activi-
ties as acquisition of real property, 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 City of Quincy must plan to minimize displacement
of persons as a result of planned CDBG activities. In addition, the City of Quincy is required to develop a plan
to assist displaced persons.

A Public Hearing to receive citizen views concerning the community's Economic and Community
Development needs will be held at City Hall, located at 404 W. Jefferson St., Quincy, FL 32351, on March 22,
2005, at 6:00 p.m. For information concerning the public hearing, or if you require special assistance of any
kind, contact the City Clerk, at least two business days before the Public Hearing, at (850) 627-7681.

graphed by Melissa May of Quincy.
The costumes were generously pro-
vided by Quincy Music Theatre.
"We dominated and set the mark
for the other schools to reach," said
Debbie Maxwell, the other sponsor
of the club.
"I don't know what we would
have done without the First Baptist
Church bus and Mr. Don Sirmons.
We also have much for which to
thank the Pilot Club of Quincy."
"The sponsorship of Pilot lends
ever present support to our girls'
work in the community. We are
also very grateful to the A-drl.ti C.
and Annie M. Fletcher Foundation

Calling cards help combat rape during Spring Break
40,000 calling card key chains to be distributed in state of Florida during March


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

\ In the spring or near spring, a
young man's fancy turns to love.
Unfortunately in the spring or as
the weather gets warmer, some
young men's fantasies turn to
rape. Over 6,100 forcible sex of-
fenses were reported in the first
half of 2004, according to the
Florida Department of Law En-
forcement's uniform crime re-
port offense data. Approximate-
:ly 80 percent of the sexual as-
saults occur while either the vic-

In defense of using the name
QuincyFest, city manager Willie
:Earl Banks explained that by using
the name QuincyFest it would help
build a reputation for the event. In
reference to the volunteers needed
to put on a large event Banks added
that the recent "Red Hill" event
had over 500 volunteers.
Commissioners budgeted
$10,000 for the event in this year's
budget.

May. "He was a good person. He
played sports in the neighborhood
and he liked to go to our grand-
mother's house," said his brother,
James. The second of the three
Stevens boys, Anthony adored his
one-year-old daughter, Shantree.
"All he talked about was taking
good care of her," James said.
James said that his brother and
Belvis had been dating about three
months and although she lived near-
by before moving into an anpart-
ment in Quincy, the family didn't
know much about her. James .said
his brother had he.iuin living with.
Belvis during ihe eek and she
would bring him home on week-
.ends.
"She took him to school every day
before she went to her job at the
mushroom farm," James said.
Chalmus Thomas, East Gadsden
High principal, said most students
knew of the incident by the time
they came to school Monday. There
were a few students who were upset
when they found out at school, but
we were able to handle it. We had
school psychologists on standby if
we needed them," he said.
"He was the average student, not
a trouble maker. He was one of us
and he will be missed," Thomas
said.

month the meters that were illegal
had to be monitored regularly by
Davis and Robinson to ensure they
were not detected.
Failing to keep one step ahead of
the meter readers is what triggered
the arrest. To illegally turn on the
electricity, an altered meter was
used to replace the one that was al-
ready in the home. One of the pair
forgot to swap back the meter and
started the investigation that led to
their arrest.
The pair received payment from
residents for their services of lower-
ing their electricity usage.
Marshall received one of the ille-
gal meters and is alleged to have
learned how to disconnect the meter
and cause it not to register voltage
usage.
Marshall stated in the report that
"the guy told (him) that everybody
is doing it."
He also said that one way to detect
which homes were involved would
be to check those that have had a
dramatic drop in electricity usage.
One home listed in the report had
a usage of 3100 kilowatts last Feb-
ruary and only 1100 kilowatts this
year a difference of 2000 kilo-
watts.
The investigation is still ongoing
according to Captain James Hughes
of the Quincy Police Department.
Hughes said that a dollar value has
not been determined in the scheme
and that additional arrests are ex-
pected in reference to others in-
volved in this crime.
City manager Willie Earl Banks
said that the city intended to prose-
cute those involved to the full extent
of the law.


the influence of drugs or alco-
hol.
The Florida Department of
Health in partnership with the
Florida Council Against Sexual
Violence announced a plan to
combat forcible sex offenses
during spring break activities.
The plan includes distribution of
telephone calling cards that pro-
mote rape awareness, preven-
tion information and victim
services.
"Anything that we can do is
helpful. The instances of rape
have reached epidemic propor-


$10,000 and it's over," Cook said.
Customer service director Anto-
nio Jefferson, also a member of the
committee, referred to the previous
QuincyFest which at that time was
sponsored by downtown merchants
and the Mainstreet program that
was active in Quincy at the time.
"It was a remarkable event," Jeffer-
son said.
This event would start out small
and lead into a QuincyFest. The
idea, he said, was to have a focused
event to both raise funds and add to
the volunteer base.
Houston added that invitations
had already been sent out and ap-


tions and rural counties like
ours are not exempt," said Whit-
ney Sampson of the Gadsden
County Sheriff's Office and a
member of the county's Domes-
tic Violence and Sexual Assault
Task Force.
The Department of Health
has also joined in to educate and
prevent sexual assaults. "Spring
Break is a time when some stu-
dents drink more alcohol and
are in unfamiliar environments.
Both of which can add to the
risk of sexual assault," said
Nancy Humbert, Women's


plications for the Bar-B-Que were
also being received.
Cook made a motion to leave
the committee's plan as presented.
Dowdell asked Houston what
the committee would do if the city
pulled out of the event, and re-
ceived no answer.
The motion failed with Cook
and Taylor for and Dowdell and
Elias against. Commissioner Andy
Gay was not present at the meeting.
Another motion was made to table
the issue until next week's regular
meeting and that motion passed
with Cook being the only dissent-
ing vote.


Health Officer for the Depart-
ment of Health. "We hope to
open line of communication to
improve rape awareness, offer
an easily accessible source of
victim services for anyone who
may need it and reduce the inci-
dence of sexual offenses."
Forty-seven hotels in the


state will be distributing 40,000
calling card key chains during
the month of March. Each key
chain will provide 15 minutes of
free telephone service. Those
who call to activate the cards
hear a message about sexual vi-
olence prevention, and are given
toll-free numbers for local rape


crisis centers that offer confi-
dential victim services and pre-
vention education.
For more information on
sexual violence prevention and
recovery services for survivors

Sexual Violence. 1-888-956-

marketing quota?

) Are you an owner, operator, landlord, tenant, or sharecropper who
shared in the risk of producing tobacco anytime between 2002 and
2004?

' Do you grow Flue-cured, Burley, Fire-cured, Dark air-cured, Virginia
sun-cured, or Cigar filler/binder tobacco?

Gadsden County Times March 17, 2005 15


Families

affectionately called her was going
to celebrate a birthday. "The last
time I saw her was on Nov. 23, her
birthday was coming up on Nov. 29
and she didn't call. By December, I
knew something was wrong. The
hardest part was not knowing. I
can't even tell her brothers and sis-
ters what happened to her," Nealy
said.
Nealy and family members of 16
unsolved murder victims in Gads-
den County, dating back to 1973,
were together as Sheriff Morris
Young began his efforts to keep one
of his campaign promises. "You
can take comfort in knowing that
your loved ones have not been for-
gotten," Young said. He said the
cases are not going away as long as
he is sheriff. "I want whoever com-
mitted these murders to know that
the Gadsden County Sheriff's
Office is not going away. We are
committed. This isn't something
we're bringing up to make the
Gadsden County Sheriff's Office
look good. You have lost loved
ones and you want to see closure,"
Young told the families.
Family members brought in pic-
tures of their loved ones. The
thought of a murdered loved one
became fresh all over again for
Judy Sweet, the sister of Curtis
Sweet, shot to death on March 20,
1996 at Dut Collins' Club on U.S.
90 East. "I'm alright she said...I'll
be alright."
Perhaps the oldest unsolved mur-
der in the he room dated back to
April 1973 when Isley "Buddy"
McCullough and his teenage grand-
son, Delvacchio Lanier, went miss-
ing. "The two disappeared on April
28, 1973. McCullough was operat-
ing his taxicab the day of the disap-
pearance. He was last seen trans-
porting two Black men in their
early 20s. The next day, On April
29, the taxi was found in a wooded
area approximately three miles
south of Quincy on the High
Bridge Road. The taxi had human
blood smears on the passenger side
of the vehicle. The money box,
which should have contained $450
was found in the trunk of the car
and the money missing," according
to a synopsis of all of the murders
released by the sheriff.
McCullough's son-in-law and
Lanier's father, Walter Lanier,
attended the meeting. "Somebody
knows something that they're not
telling. Get the one back here who
investigated it in the first place, ask
him some questions," Lanier said.
Lanier said he had been grieving
for the past 32 years. The tragedies,
he said, caused him to drink exces-
sively, but that he has not con-
sumed, alcohol for the past eight
years. "You can hurt so bad that the
hurt just don't hurt no more," he
said.
The cases they are looking into
are:

Young has assigned investigators
in each case. Following the meeting
family members met with investi-
gators in closed session to go over
information that had been gathered
and to get an update on the status
of their cases.

Cold Cases

Continued from Page 1

is real life," Wood said.
Major, David Ganious told the
families that each community where
the murders occurred will be revis-
ited. 'We'll probably be going door-
to-door, we'll be getting photos in
the newspapers, we'll be out there,"
he said.
"The media will be the key to
helping get the word out that these
cases have been reopened. The
media is very important because
people remember things somewhere
back down the road and they might
get loose lips or someone might
remember an incident that didn't
seem important until now," said
Ganious.
"When you have a new set of eyes
looking at evidence, something
might come to light," said FDLE
Special Agent Jim Biddle. He cau-
tioned families about talking too
much about their cases. "There are
certain things you might know that
the only other person who knows
will be the killer," he added.
Family members were permitted
to ask general questions about new
techniques, but specifics about indi-
vidual cases were off limits during
the open meeting. Gadsden County,
families were told, is not a big
county and many people are famil-
iar with each other. "Some people
may not have come forward out of
fear. People know people. They
don't want to get involved, but
we're going to open up every
avenue for people to come for-
ward," Wood said.
Major Tommy Haire told the fam-
ilies that there are files on each case
individually and specific investiga-
tors have been assigned to each
case.
Young said opening the cold cases
is not a ploy. "I have worked on
some of these cases and you all
know me, we're going to do every-
thing. I pledge to you all of the
resources this office can offer. We
want to bring closure to this for
you,' Young said.


Gadsden LEARN raising $1800


scholarships for county's 6th graders


By BYRON SPIRES
Times Staff Writer

Last Sunday was a big day for
Gadsden LEARN.
The Lending Educational Assis-
tance to Residents Now program
kicked-off with the world famous
Budweiser Clydesdales in down-
town Quincy.
The ten, 2000 pound, six-foot tall
Clydesdales were provided by Tri-
Eagle Sales, the Budweiser distribu-
tor soon to be housed in the new
Hammock Creek Industrial Park in
Gadsden County. The afternoon was
filled with rides for several digni-
taries around the courthouse square
and picture opportunities for the
several hundred that attended the
event.
The Gadsden LEARN Program is
working to raise $1800 scholarships
for each qualified sixth grader in the


Gadsden County School district.
The Tallahassee Community Col-
lege Foundation will seek matching
funds from the state.
The kick-off was a way to let the
community know that the program
has now started, Gadsden County
Chamber of Commerce director
David Gardner said. Gadsden
County has one of the lowest gradu-
ation rates in the state at 43.1 per-
cent compared to the statewide aver-
age of 71.5.
This program Gardner said is
intended to help students attain
higher educational goals and,
hopefully, increase the number who
will graduate.
The two-year scholarships to TCC
are purchased through the Florida
Pre-Paid Scholarship Program.
One advantage for local students,
according to Mark Bates the past
chair of the foundation and owner of


Bell and Bates Hardware in Quincy,
is the addition of the TCC Quincy
House. The Quincy House offers
counseling for students and parents
concerning their educational needs,
Bates said.
If you would like more informa-
tion concerning the TCC Founda-
tion you can contact Ranie Thomp-
son at 201-6064 or E-Mail at thomp-
sor@tcc.fl.edu

NOTICE OF INTENT TO TRANSMIT
Proposed Text Revisions to the Comprehensive Plan

The Gadsden County Planning Commission seated as the
Local Planning Agency will hold a public meeting to discuss pro-
posed changes to the Gadsden County Comprehensive Plan. The
proposals for discussion include:
2005-02-T1 Revisions to the Future Land Use Element
2005-02-T2 Revision to the Conservation Element
2005-02-T3 Revisions to the Capital Improvements
Element.
Revisions to the Future Land Use and Conservation
Elements are intended to provide additional criteria and protec-
tions for conservation easements, environmentally sensitive
lands, and restrictions for designated open space areas. Revisions
to the Capital Improvements Element are intended to provide
additional definition to the scope and schedule of recreational
improvements in the County's parks program and will include
water and sewer projects in the five year Capital Improvements
Plan.
After the revisions are heard for these Elements, the Local
Planning Agency will reconvene in a regular meeting session and
make a recommendation in the form of a motion to send the text
amendments from these Elements to the Board of County
Commissioners.
The meeting will be held as a part of the regular meeting
which is scheduled to be held on March 23rd, 2005. If duly for-
warded, the County Commission will hear and discuss the pro-
posed text amendments on Tuesday, April 19th, 2005. Both meet-
ings will begin at 6:00 p.m. in the County Commission meeting
room, at 7 East Jefferson Street, Quincy, Florida. If approved for
transmittal by the County Commission, the application will be
transmitted to the Department of Community Affairs for approval
or comment as a part of the 2005-02 Comprehensive Plan amend-
ment series.
Copies of the proposed Plan Text Amendments will be available
at the Growth Management Department, 1B East Jefferson Street,
Quincy. Persons wishing to comment may do so in person at the public
hearing or in writing to the Gadsden County Board of County
Commissioners, 7 East Jefferson Street, Quincy, FL 32351. If a person
decides to appeal any decision by the Board of County Commissioners
with respect to any matter considered at such public hearing, he/she will
need a record of the proceedings and for such purpose he/she may need
to insure that a verbatim record of the proceedings is made, which
record includes testimony and evidence to which the appeal is to be
heard.

16 March 17, 2005 Gadsden County Times


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.

MARCH MADNESS
There's not many ways a
person could escape the big
:going's on in the sports world
right now if they wanted to.
March Madness, a rite of
spring is upon us as the NCAA
Men's Basketball Championship
-gets underway this week.
The 65 team tournament has
representatives from 35 states
-and the District of Columbia in
.this years field.
The state with the most


entries is North Carolina with 5.
Pennsylvania and California are
next with 4 each.
Conference wise the Big
East has the most teams with 6
while the ACC, the SEC, the Big
12, and the Big Ten have 5
each.
Our state is represented by

Florida and Central Florida win-
ners of the SEC and the Atlantic
Sun Conference tournaments
respectively.
The Gators have been play-
ing great ball the past 2 weeks
and surprised the field by
sweeping through the SEC Tour-
nament in Atlanta last week.
Their first round opponent
will be Ohio U. from the Mid-
American Conference. The two
will meet in a first round game in
Charlotte Friday at 12:25 pm.
Central Florida gets defend-
ing champion Connecticut in the
first round game at 2:45 pm Fri-
day in Worcester, Mass.
Florida will win their game.
Central Florida won't. They'll be
1 of the 32 teams eliminated in
the first round.
Florida will be 1 of the 32 to
advance to the second round


where they will meet the winner
of the New Mexico-Villanova
game. Either foe will give the
Gators fits but the 'hog town'
boys are playing a little different
than Gator teams have played in
the past. They aren't playing
soft inside and have go to play-
ers David Lee inside, and Matt
Walsh and Anthony Roberson
outside, that can score down the
stretch.
Put the Gators as 1 of the
Sweet 16 heading into next
week's regionals.
The 15 teams that will join
them I think are North Carolina,
Kansas and U. Conn in the
Syracuse bracket which means
the Gators will face N.C. next
week at Syracuse.
The 4 Sweet 16 teams in
the Austin bracket will be Duke,
Michigan State, Utah, and

Cincinnati, which means, I feel,
a 6 seed in Utah and a 7 seed in
Cincinnati will advance.
In the Chicago bracket Illi-
nois, Alabama, Arizona, and
Oklahoma State will still be play-
ing with 5 seed Alabama being a
lower advancing seed.
The Albuquerque bracket
will have Pacific, Louisville, Gon-
zaga, and Wake Forest advanc-
ing leaving 1 seed Washington
at the house.
Of course if I bet on this and
it came out this way I would
make a lot of money. But I
won't bet because more than
likely I would lose. It's fun to
speculate however and who
ever makes the Sweet 16 will
get me to speculate on them
next week. March Madness will
be fun again.

Scovell said the FWC is commit-
ted to conservation programs that
are based on scientific research and
produce the kinds of results anglers
want to see.
As a first step in this process, the
FWC is asking anglers to take part
in a survey it has posted online at
www.surveyroom.com/FisheriesIn-
put/. Most people are able to com-
plete the questionnaire in about 15
minutes. Responses and comments
are confidential. Later, the FWC
will publish a summary of what
anglers say about the state of fresh-
water fishing here in the Fishing
Capital of the World and what the
agency needs to do to make it better.
In a second step, the FWC will
host a series of public meetings to
discuss survey results and develop
plans and, priorities for the future.
Survey participants will be asked
about their willingness to partici-
pate in a future planning meeting
and about when and where such
meetings should take place.

Foreign high school students are
scheduled to arrive soon for aca-
demic semester and year program
homestays, and the sponsoring
organization needs a few more local
host families.
According to Pacific Intercultural
Exchange (P.I.E.) Executive
Director, John Doty, the students are
all between the ages of 15 and 18
years, are English-speaking, have
their own spending money, carry
accident and health insurance, and
are anxious to share their cultural
experiences with their new
American families.
P.I.E. currently has programs to
match almost every family's needs,
ranging in length from a semester to
a full academic year, where the stu-
dents attend local high schools.
P.I.E. area representatives match
students with host families by find-
ing common interests and lifestyles
through an informal in-home meet-
ing. Prospective host families are
able to review student applications
and select the perfect math. As there
are no "typical" host families, P.I.E.
can fit a student into just about any
situation, whether it is a single par-
ent, and childless, couple, a retired
couple or a large family.
Families who host for P.I.E. are
also eligible to claim a $50.00 per
month charitable contribution on
their itemized tax returns for each
month they host a sponsored stu-
dent.
For upcoming programs, P.I.E. has


students from Germany, the former
Soviet Union, Venezuela, Argentina,
Brazil, Macedonia, Hungary, Korea,
Mexico, Australia, Yugoslavia,
China, and many other countries.
P.I.E. is also participating in two
special government-funded pro-
grams to bring scholarship students
from the newly independent states
of the former Soviet Union as well
as predominately Islamic countries
such as Yemen, Syria, Jordan,
Morocco, Kuwait, Iraq, and Quatar
to the United States.
P.I.E. is a non-profit educational
organization that has sponsored
more than 25,000 students from 45
countries since its founding in 1975.
The organization is designated by
the United States Department of
State and is listed by the Council on
Standards for International
Educational Travel (CSIET), certi-
fying that the organization complies
with the standards set forth in
CSINET's Standards for
International Educational Travel
Programs.
Doty encourages families to con-
tact the program immediately, as it
will allow the proper time for the
students and hosts to get to know
now one another before they actual-
ly meet for the first time.
Gadsden area families interested
in learning more a bout student
exchange or arranging for a meeting
with a community representative
may call P.I.E., toll-free, at 1-800-
613-1818.

Dicky Rudd's run of bad luck con-

has proved that it's worthy of two dates. It would make
sense.
"NASCAR is continuing to change and heading in a

the country there are people wanting two dates, so this
place has definitely got its ch ll.:r,.-: ahead of it."
Kyle Busch is in favor of a second race here too. "I'd
love a night race," he said.
