Green was 'running for his life'


Editor Alice DuPont will be examining the cold case
files recently reopened by the Gadsden County Sher-
iff's Department over the next 16 weks.

It was warm that spring morning, April 25, 2001. The
community of Sawdust was awake. The school buses
had made their morning runs and people at home were


getting ready for
the day. Some

ers took hoes to the
gardens or rakes to The Gadsden County Sherifl

have been made. The Green case is one of the county's
16 cold case murder files that has been dusted off.
"We're taking another look at it. It was one of the most
recent. There are people around who still know some-
thing," said Sheriff Morris Young.
Family and friends describe Green (no picture avail-

:Ground was officially broken for the new main Gadsden County Library on Pat Thomas Parkway. the facility should be completed by December, 2005 or
January, 2006.



A new home for our books


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

The county's new main library should be fin-
ished by December 2005 or January 2006. While
the official groundbreaking ceremony was held
Wednesday morning, crews began work last
week. Already, plans are in the works for the big
move from the crowded basement of the W.A.
Woodham Justice Center to the new digs on Pat
Thomas Parkway, next door to the Post Office.
"The good thing about it.is that it is built as a
library," said Jane Mock, Director of Libraries.
The new library will be a one story, modern
building with more than 14,500 feet of space. The
current library had 8,105 square feet.
Mock said the new library will have more space
for computers. Currently, the computers are
always in use and often there is a waiting period.
"We will also have an area.where computers can
be used if computer classes are in session," she
said.
Last week, we got in some new paperbacks and
we had to pull some of the paperbacks we had as
well a videos," Mock said. She and the staff have
learned to pack a lot into a little space. On the
one-story floor, they have managed to shoe horn
in adult and juvenile book collections both fiction


and non-fiction, Spanish language materials,
paperbacks, large print publications, audio tapes,
books on CDs, magazines, a computer area, a
children's area, a space for reading periodicals,
office space for Literacy Volunteers of America's
director, special programs for children, outreach
for daycares, and after school programs.
The design of the new facility will make it more
efficient for staff and patrons. The atmosphere
will, Mock hopes, encourage people to stay
around longer and not just check out materials
and leave. "The ceiling will be higher and the
lighting will be better, we plan canopy for the
shelves, and a larger meeting room that will be
available for use by the public during hours when
the library is not in operation. Currently, the
meeting rooms cannot be used unless the library
is open. That means the public will be allowed to
use the meeting room weekends and evenings.
Mock said the new location will mean more vis-
ibility and more visits from the public. "It's been
a long process but we're very excited about it,"
Mock said.
The Gadsden County Public Library has existed
for only 22 years. Before the first public library
opened in the old Quincy Academy building at
the corner of King and North Adams Streets, the
Women's Club had a private library in the build-


Library in Quincy
ing. The collection was donated to the public
library. The circulation the first year was 15,138
with 2,423 people holding library cards. In the
second year, circulation jumped to 21,934.
In 1986, the library moved to its current loca-
tion as part of an agreement with Tallahassee
Community College. For a while, the library was
used for the Gadsden County Branch of TCC as
well as the public library. The total collection size
was 12,095 in 1980. The collection size of the
main library now totals more than 62,000. The
hours of operation have also increased. The
library also added a bookmobile in the, mid 1990s.
"Our goal is to have a library that anticipates
and meets the needs of the public. In the new
facility we anticipate more use because it is in a
growth area, a thriving neighborhood is within
walking distance, there are already sidewalks
leading to the library," she said.
Because of the location, Mock also expects an
increase in use by people over 65. The current site
has steps leading to the main entrance, or patrons
must use the first floor elevator that open into the
sheriff's department reception and office area.
Mock said she feels that residents who will fre-
quent the new facility "will feel like they're com-
ing to the library."

Willie Sentille Smith, the man
accused of killing four people in
April 2004, will not stand trial any-
time soon.
Last week, two doctors told Cir-
cuit Judge William Gary that Smith
is not mentally stable enough to
stand trial at this time. Smith was
ordered into the custody of the
Department of Children and Fami-
lies for evaluation and treatment. *
He could, however, be able to
stand trial on the four counts of first-
degree murder in six months.
Smith is accused of one of the
most gruesome crimes in Gadsden
County. He admitted to then deputy


Morris Young that he killed his girl-
friend Kimberly Walker, 18, her
mother Deondra Scott, 38, her sister
Laterica Jackson, 14, and her nine-
year-old cousin Terrel Brown.
The bloody rampage was called
the worse ii recent memory in the
county. All four of the victims died
from gunshot wounds. The killings
were said to be the end result of an
argument between the teen-aged
Walker and Smith.
The county was rocked by the
murders that took place in the fam-
ily's rural mobile home near Hard-
away.
Smith was arrested shortly after
the incident and charged. He has
been in the county jail since the
killings.

QuincyFest back on track


by BYRON SPIRES
Times Staff Writer

It is now official: QuincyFest
presents Blues and Bar-B-Que will
move forward May 14 as planned.
At last week's special called
meeting the commission( short one
commissioner) in a tie vote failed to
agree on the future of the event. The
issue was tabled until this week's
meeting.
Tuesday night, still one commis-
sioner short, the event passed with
commissioners Sherrie Taylor,
Andy Gay and Keith Dowdell sid-
ing against Mayor Derrick Elias
The controversy arose over the
.vision Elias said he had for the
event. Elias said he had envisioned
a large event that would encompass
the whole community. The problem
came when Elias learned that the
committee planned to limit the food
vending to Bar-B-Que and there
were no plans for arts and craft ven-
dors.
Co-chairperson Alice DuPont
explained that this year's event
would be small and limited to Blues
and Bar-B-Que with plans to grow
into a larger event in the future.
She added that there were not
enough people on the volunteer
committee to put on such a large
event. It was mentioned that the
recent Red Hills horse trials had a
volunteer group of over 500 people.
The city has budgeted $10,000
for the event and at last week it was
mentioned that there were other
sponsors planning to participate
financially in the event.
Elias said he was ready to put the
Issue to bed saying that it should

either be modified, done away with
it all together, or left alone.
Co-chairperson for the commit-
tee, Michael O'Halloran, spoke to
the commission and explained the
reasoning behind the decision to
limit the event to Blues and Bar-B-
Que. O'Halloran said that the com-
mittee has met each week on Mon-
day since its inception to work on
the plans for the event. "We have
about 12-15 people at each of,.our
meetings that last about two hours,"
O'Halloran said.
O'Halloran said that there were
11 subcommittees that are currently
working on different aspects of the
event. He added that they had
received five responses from local
applicants for the competition. The
problem with changing the event
now, he said, was the number of


Photo by Byron Spires
volunteers involved with the proj-
ect.
"Our plate is full," O'Halloran
said. He said that adding one more
thing to the event would possibly
add 20-30 changes.
O'Halloran explained that prob-
lems with the past QuincyFest were
partially responsible for the idea of
taking the event slowly at first. "We
don't know how many people will
show up," O'Halloran said.
, Elias said that citizens had come
to him about wanting to have
booths at the event and not just
offer bar-b-que.
O'Halloran responded again
about the number of volunteers.
"We only have so much time and so
many volunteers. We all have jobs,
too," O'Halloran added.

Athnea Danielle Baker and three of her children were murdered in Sneads last week


before the commission three years
ago. At that time Waste Manage-
ment was contacted and their per-
formance improved. He added that
the performance issue might be
used in the negotiations with Waste
Management.
McLean was instructed to
review the request and report back
to the commission his findings on
the potential rate increase and the
city's options.

The murders of a young mother
and three of her children didn't hap-
pen in Gadsden County. But
because the young woman has ties
.to ;he coun-r iand .alm:nt a year to
the day when four other murders
happened in our midst, people are
asking the same question: why?
Who, they ask, would have gone
nto 19-year-old Athnea Danielle
Baker's apartment in Jackson
County late Wednesday night or
early Thursday morning and shot
her and killed three of her children
by using duct tape. The boys,
Ahmaad Baker, 3, Amarion
Williams, 1, and three-week-old
Aaron Baker were all found dead in
the apartment. One child, Baker's
two-year-old daughter, A'Shanti
Brunson, was spared.
According to a published time
table, at about 10 a.m. Thursday
morning, a property manager and a
maintenance man were conducting a
routine inspection of the low-
income housing complex. A woman,
who usually picks up the Baker chil-
dren to take them to a pre-kinder-
garten program in Marianna, arrived
to get them. When no one came to
the door, the woman asked the man-
ager for help. She could hear the
baby crying inside. When the
women went inside to get the baby,
she discovered the others.
Baker moved to the Cottondale
Village Apartments in Jackson


County less than a year ago. She and
the children lived in Sneads with her
father and grandmother. Her mother,
Doreen Jackson, lives in Quincy.
Family and friends described
Baker as a devoted mother, whose
children were at the center of her
life. The young woman was trying
to make a better life for her family
as she was close to graduating from
a teen parenting program run by
Jackson County and earning her
GED.
So far, police have interviewed
the children's fathers and two "peo-
ple of interest". The Marianna
Police Department has help with the
investigation from the. Jackson
County Sheriff's Office, the Florida
Department of Law Enforcement,
and the State Attorney's Office.
Anyone with information about the
slaying of the Baker family is
asked to call CrimeStoppers at 850-
526-5000, the Marianna Police
Department at 850-526-3125, or the
Jackson County Sheriff's Office at
850-482-9646.
During a press conference Tues-
day afternoon, Jackson County offi-
cials said they are still examining
leads, but no arrests have been
made. A $25,000 reward has been
posted for information leading to
the arrest and conviction of the
killerss. As authorities looked for
suspects, family members made
arrangements for the final services.
A visitation service for Athnea
Danielle Baker and the three chil-


dren will be held Thursday from 5
p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at Bradwell Mor-
tuary, 18300 Blue Star Highway
(U.S. Highway 90 West) in Quincy.
The funeral services will be at
Sneads High School auditorium in
Sneads at 1 p.m. EST Friday with
burial afterwards at Falcon Lane
Cemetery, just outside Sneads.


Pit bull maliciously burned


His name is "Arson", a little
pit bull who on February 23, was
doused with kerosene and set on
fire. The animal weighed about
19 pounds and when found, had
a chain around his neck. His
.nylon collar had melted into his
skin because of the fire.
The couple who found the
animal, which had suffered sec-
ond and third degree burns over
most of its body, attempted to
save Arson as did a veterinarian
but he died of the injuries.
There is a $500 reward for


information leading to the arrest
and conviction of the persons)
responsible for the murder of the
animal. Call Greensboro Police
Chief Morgan Markham if you
have information: 251-5036.
Arson's veterinarian bill is
also up to $700 at this time.
Donations may be sent to the
Northwood Animal Hospital ear-
marked "Arson." Send to North-
wood Animal Hospital, Suite B-

Fugitive detained in Quincy


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

Edwin Ernesto Cruz-Hernan-
dez, 23, a citizen of El Salvador,
was arrested at his Quincy home
last Wednesday after he failed to
leave the United States. Federal
officials said Cruz-Hernandez
entered the country illegally in
August 2002.


In February 2003 he was issued
a final order of removal by an
immigration judge. He failed to
leave the United States as ordered
and became, at that time, a fugi-
tive. He is being held in the
Wakulla County Jail.
His arrest is part of a national
initiative to arrest and remove fugi-
tives in hiding who have been
ordered deported from the country.


The commission heard a
request for action on Waste Man-
agement residual solid waste col-
lection rate increase. Elias took
exception with Waste Manage-
ment's performance. He told the
commission that he had seen sev-
eral problems with garbage collec-
tions around town over the past sev-
eral days.
According to Elias he saw Waste
Management employees stringing
trash along one city street as they
picked up garbage with a faulty lift.

He said he saw a truck dump
trash on a street as it was picking up
a dumpster and no one attempted to
retrieve the garbage.
Taylor said that she did not plan
to vote for any rate increases for the
citizens of Quincy.
Gay added that he thought the
city should look into starting back
the city's own garbage collection
service.

that the issue of Waste Manage-
ment's performance had been

by BYRON SPIRES
Times Staff Writer

Plans are in the making for the
second phase of the Quincy Busi-
ness Park on Joe Adams Road to
kick off.
Quincy city commissioners heard
the first reading of a CDBG grant
that will pave the way for the park to
start developing a much needed
infrastructure.
In addition to the infrastructure
the commissioners heard a presenta-
tion from Bud Clark, representing
CRA, a consulting firm.
Clark said that three South
Florida investors have plans to put a
plastic recycling plant in the park as
its first tenants.
RKO Industries currently has a
plant in LaBelle, Florida, similar to
the one planned for the Quincy loca-
tion. The company recycles mulch
plastic used in the tomato industry.

Would you like to help soldiers
in Iraq?
The Quincy Post office has a way
you can do just that.
It's real simple.
Buy a phone card (activate it)
and drop it in the box by your
favorite postal clerk.
"This is an opportunity for the
citizens of Gadsden County to par-
ticipate in this program and give to
those who are making such sacri-


mental impact the state-of-the-art
recycling plant would have on the
community, Clark said none. He
explained that the plastic would be
environmentally cleaned and then
palletized for resale to high density
plastic manufacturers.
The product, he said, was used in
such applications as car bumpers,
computer housing and plastic lum-
ber. He added that the plant would
be under Florida Department of
Environmental Protection scrutiny.
The $5 million dollar project will
employ approximately 22 people
with a payroll of about $546,000
annually. Clark said the tomato
growers that he had spoken with
were excited about the plant moving
to the Quincy area.-Currently farm-
ers are paying about $65 a,ton for
tipping fees at the local land fill.
"This fits into our overall objec-
tive and plans for the industrial
park," David Gardner, Gadsden


fices for us," said Jim Bennett,
assistant Quincy post master.
The idea started in Houston and
has swept through post offices
across the country.
According to Bennett the pro-
gram started in Florida in January
and has already raised over $35,000
worth of phone cards for troops in
Iraq.
Bennett said that the cards will
be sent to the USO in Jacksonville
to be distributed to men and women
of all branches of the service in Iraq.

County Chamber of Commerce
director, said. Gardner added that
each high paying job brought to the
county had a residual effect of 1.6
jobs added to the community in
other areas.
He said that once the infrastruc-
ture was in place, the regional area


would begin to take a serious look at
the Quincy Park. "I'll assure you
that the region is looking at us. I
don't want this to go somewhere
else," Gardner said.
Clark said that plans are for the
plant to be up and operational by
late summer of 2006.

Several months ago the James A.
Shanks Middle School Advisory
Council asked the School Board for
help. The problem, they explained,
is that there are too many students at
the middle school who, because of
their ages, should not be there. The
end result has been disruptions in
the classrooms and fights in the
hallways.
One parent was so concerned
about the problem that she threat-
ened to take her child out of the
Shanks and county. "They have to
protect my child. She is afraid to go
to school," the mothci said. The
mother said her 12-year-old has
been in two fights with girls 15 and
17 years old. "There are a number of.
students that should be attending
East Gadsden High School ranging
from 15 through 17 years old. How-
ever, they are attending Shanks
Middle, starting fights daily with
the same and different students,"
she wrote.
There are students who are 16
and 17 in the same classes as 12-
and 13-year-olds. Parents worry too
about the social implications. "My
12-year-old cannot handle inappro-
priate attention from someone 16 or
17 years old," said the mother.
She said she isn't alone in her
concerns.
School administrators are con-
cerned, too. Director of Safety,
Reginald Young, said some of. the
friction at school originates in the
community. "There were fights at
Shanks a couple of weeks ago and
last Friday there was a fight at West
Gadsden. We're waiting for the
principals to give us an assessment
of the situations," he said.
Young said school becomes a

Correction
In last week's edition, John
David West, Jr. was misidentified as
his brother Ira West, in a photo
about the Sheriff's Department cold
cases. His sister, Molly Sue Bram-
lett's date pf, death was incorrectly
noted as May 24. This victim was


convenient place to settle disputes.
"There is a lot of telephone calling
back and forth over the weekend.
They join up with their cousins and
friends and someone pushes up
someone. To me it's not fighting,
more pushing and shoving with a
big crowd around them," Young
said.
Still, Young is beginning to
implement programs to curtail
school violence, whatever the
source. "We're resurrecting the
school safety patrol. There will be
mandatory character education
classes. We're putting in a conflict
resolution program and class man-
agement skills program," he said.
Next week 20 students and
teachers from both middle schools
and both high schools will go to
Miami to attend a Youth Crime
Watch convention. "The hope is that
they will come away with programs
they can start at their own schools
that have worked in other schools,"
Young said.
"We have a problem and a lot of
it stems from the older students,"
said Superintendent Reginald

PINIONS


ontemplations


SBy: Alice DuPonti


When the public elects an
individual to fill a slot on coun-
cils, boards, commissions, etc.
they are not electing you king,
queen, prince or princess. Nor
do they intent for elected offi-
cials to become dictators. In the
past few months, a number of
citizens have stopped me to talk
about the attitudes of some of
bur elected officials. They have,
tongue in cheek and not too flat-
teringly, referred to one or two
*of them as "King this or that" or
"Queen this or that."
Whether our elected officials
know it or not, the people are
paying close attention to the way
they conduct themselves in
meetings and the way they
address people during public
meetings and forums. I was all
in favor of televising meetings
because people need to see just
what kind of individual they've
put in office. I hope that one day
the School Board will vote to
televise their meetings, many
school already do that.
Anyway, with television, "I
was misquoted" is no longer an


excuse. It's there for people to
see and hear if they want to.
But, getting back to my topic
this week, it is clear to me and
quite a few citizens that some of
our elected officials need to
learn the simple courtesy of how
to talk to people and how to lis-
ten.
I doubt it stems from a lack
of guidance in the formative
years (what the old folks call
home training) or if, when peo-
ple are elected to office, the
egos take over for common
sense. Becoming an elected offi-
cial does not give you the right
to talk down to people, to belit-
tle people or to flaunt whatever
real or imagined authority you
have conjured up between your
two ears. Everyone, no matter
who they are, deserve to be
treated with courtesy and
respect. It doesn't matter
whether they come before you to
request a variance for a million
dollar project or for a crew to
pick up paper in their neighbor-
hood.
What happened to civility in


public meetings?
More than a few times during
the past six months my jaw has
literally dropped because of
statements made by public offi-
cials.
Sometimes it was because the
statement was so dumb it defied
logic and other times because
comments were so mean-spirited
and hateful, I couldn't believe
that anyone could walk around
all consumed with that much
hatred and venom. Hey, I don't
know what some folks have
been through in life and maybe
there's a valid reason why they
act the way they do. But, in my
opinion, they should leave that
"I'm better and more powerful
than you" attitude at home and
get on with the business of the
county, municipality, or board
on which they serve.
There is a growing discontent
in our community with the atti-
tude or lack thereof by some of
our elected officials, by not only
the citizens but also fellow
elected officials who suffer
under the onslaught of heavy-
handedness currently practiced
by some who would be king, if
they could.
My advice is to watch how
you talk to people, it could be
you standing on the other side of
the podium one day.

Questions motives

Dear Editor,

I was quite appalled by the com-
ments made by a local pastor at the
funeral services of Anthony Stevens.
When family and friends are griev-
ing and trying to bring closure to the
events that led to this young man's
death, this pastor has no God given
wisdom to help them move forward.
When Pastor Larryissac asked the
TC Boyz to stand up and then pro-
ceeded to ask the members of clergy
to stand with him, many were under
the impression that he would offer
prayer to these young men to other
words of encouragement.
SI was one of the clergy who was
there and was uneasy about accom-
panying him, but then to stand by a
man that would tell about fifty
'young men under 25 that "if you get
upset with anybody, to come and hit
,one of us" is not worthy to lead a
'church congregation. As a member
of the clergy and a relative, I would
like these young' men to do what
they have been trying to do for the
past year and a half, come and talk
with me when they see me on the
'school campus or others they may
'see in the streets when they get
)upset. I am sorry Pastor Larryissac
IScott and anyone that may have
agreed with you, but your words
'were not words of wisdom nor the
words inspired by any spirit of God.
SThe scripture says with loving
kindness have I drawn you, where is
your love? Also, where are the after
school programs and youth min-
istries that your church and other
churches should be sponsoring free
of charge to help these young men
find Christ. I am not talking about
programs just for members of your
church, but programs to better Gads-
den county. I forgot, no way to make
MONEY, no great public recogni-
tion; we will not sponsor such pro-
grams in our churches.
'However, we want to condemn these
young men for finding unity among
each other, when many of them do
not have fathers at home to give
them love and guidance. I hang
around these young men every
chance I get and I see the good and
hear the good that is in each of them
and because there are very few who


will do what Jesus did, hang among
the sinners to help them find the
light. We tend to forget where we
came from and now we want God to
destroy everyone who does not look
or act like you. It is not in the acting
or the looking but it is in the way
you live on a daily basis. Let's be
what God has called and chosen us
to be, if we are truly called and cho-
sen by him.

Elder Elijah Key, Jr.

Thanks T.M.H.

Dear Editor,

Our family would like to share a
recent, pleasant experience follow-
ing our sweet mother Betty Corry's
hip-replacement surgery.
It all started last month with a
simple fall in a kitchen one Saturday
evening. A frantic call to 911,
expecting a long delay, were sur-
prised with a quick response from a
cautious yet friendly EMS team... on
to TMH emergency room 20 min-
utes later, again prompt and effec-
tive service. The on-duty doctor
diagnosed the fracture and sched-
uled surgery the next day! The sur-
geon, nurses, and staff were first
rate, and two weeks later we were
ushered to adjacent TMHRC for
rehab and physical therapy. Again a
host of friendly, caring professionals
preparing us for the transition home.
Now begins the home health care
phase.
While some hurdles remain, with
mother's faith and positive attitude
coupled with continued quality med-
ical care we expect to do the "Irish
Jig" again some day soon.
In closing, our extended family
of 21 would like to express our
appreciation and gratitude for hav-
ing this caliber of health care service
right here in our own back yard!

The Margaret H. "Betty" Corry
Family of Quincy, Florida.

Social Security woes

Dear Editor,

Many things lately are being said
about Social Security. The propo-
nents of putting a part of Social


Security contributions into person
private accounts say that the system
will be bankrupt, or flat broke by the
year 2042. However, the Comptrol-
ler General of the United States said
in testimony before Congress that
the system will never be bankrupt or
broke because it will always have
resources by virtue of wage earners
contributions. However, it is esti-
mated that the system will only be
able to pay 73% of promised bene-
fits by 2042. Therefore, there is a
long range problem that needs atten-
tion. The sooner we address this
problem that will occur 37 years
from now the easier it will be to fix
according to the Comptroller Gen-
eral. He said that there are much
larger and more imminent problems
that threaten our fiscal well being as
a nation.
If our deficit spending does not
stop I think that Social Security's
problem will be irrelevant because
our load of debt will cause a serious
breakdown in our ability to function
as a dependable country.
The Social Security web site will
give you the unpolitical information
about the true condition of Social
Security.
The Social Security trust fund
now has over 1 1/2 trillion dollars
and is collecting about 150 billion
dollars annually over what is needed
to pay benefits. The contribution
will be in surplus until the year
2018. At that time the government
will have to start paying back the
money that they have spent from the
trust fund. The trust fund resources
will enable full benefits to be paid
until the year 2042.
I have studied as much about this
as possible, and from what I have
learned from what seemed to be
reliable sources the following
adjustments would make Social
Security solvent far into the future,
and not require any fundamental
changes to the design and function
of the system.
1- Begin raising the cap on the max-
imum wage contributions by
$5000.00 annually until 90% of all
wage earners are paying on all their
earnings.
2- Begin investing all of the annual
Social Security surplus collections
in conservative stocks and bonds.
Which might give a better return
than the government bonds without


It seems there is always some-
thing controversial that draws
national attention.
One in particular, the Terri
Schiavo case, has been in the
forefront a lot over the past sev-
eral days.
I'm sure by now everyone
knows about the case and all of
the legal mumbo jumbo that it
has created.
I too have watched as the hus-
band and family have fought
over what should happen to
Terri.
I have also seen how it has
drawn a fervor of debate and at
some times even a few yelling
matches between those outside
of the family that feel they know
what is best for Terri.
For my part, I'll be honest, I
don't know what the answer
should be.
At some point in nearly every-
body's life, however, there may
be a time when they face some
very heart wrenching decisions.
My mother was diagnosed
with cancer in 1992.
,It was a shock, as those that
have experienced that news can
tell you.
I believe my mother was one
of the strongest people I have
ever known and she took the
news way better than the rest of
us did. She came home from the.


causing risks to individuals.
3- Start converting the government
bonds in the Social Security trust
fund from special issue bonds to
negotiable bonds. This should be
done at about $100 billion annually
to coincide with the 2018 date that
the system will need to start using
money from that fund. 4- Raise con-
tributions to the system by 1/8%
from wage earner and 1/8% from
employer annually until the Social
Security commission determines
that the system is solvent for 75
years.
These small incremental
increases will not hurt the economy,
and are far superior to fragmenting
the system and leaving people
uncertain about
their benefits.

Officers motives questioned

Dear Editor,

On February 25 at approximately
12:00 a.m. my son and his friends
pulled up to the Shell Station at the
corner of 9th St. and N" Main St. in
Havana for gas. Upon pulling up an
older white male was already in the
process of fueling his vehicle. My
son's friend exited the car to fuel his
vehicle and asked the man how to
operate the pumps.
My son exited from the passen-
ger side to inquire if there was a
problem. As soon as my son came
near the pump he noticed that his
friend was coming back towards the
vehicle. My son heard the older man
say to get back and he saw a black
gun in his hand which the man had
pointed at his friend as he walked
away. Then the mail turned to my
son pointing the gun at him and said
"Get back." He did and got into the
vehicle to phone the police to report
the incident. The man told the
police that my son and his friends
tried to rob him. One officer replied
that it was a "big misunderstanding"
and the other officer agreed with
him. My son
tried to get the officers to realize
that all of their lives could have
been taken over what they thought
to be a "big misunderstanding." The
officers) advised that we could
press charges but it wouldn't do any


hospital knowing she did not
have much time left.
I was heartbroken, I was los-
ing the best friend I ever had or
ever hoped to have and there was
absolutely nothing I could do.
The doctors had given her six
months, she told me, as we sat in
her living room after she came
home from the hospital. I was in
a state of shock to say the least. I
sat in disbelief as she explained
to me what had occurred over
the past several days. The cancer
had spread and was inoperable,
she told me.
"I need to talk to you about
something," she said.
From the magazine rack next
to her chair she pulled out a
manila envelope and then handed
it to me. "We need to go over
what's in there," I remember her
saying.
The doctors had given it to
her she told me, and suggested
she read over it. It was what
would be called today a living
will.
For the next two hours she
and I sat and talked about what
she wanted.
It was the hardest thing I have
ever done in my life. To sit and
talk to my mother about her
impending death.
She made some hard decisions
that day.' ,


good because the man's gun is reg-
istered.
The white officer walked away
to retrieve a pen and paper to get
some information from my son and
his friends, the black officer said to
my son and friends Yall know yall
probable scared the odler white
male, two black boys late at night
with no lights. As if that was justifi-
cation for the older white males
actions.
I called the chief to discuss the
treatment that my son and his
friends had endured, he advised me
that he didn't actually know what
was going on but he would like into
the case. They were told to come
back and were asked what reason


they wanted to file a report that the
officer's had already filed. I'm just
a concerned parent who is a little
angry because of the lack of con-
cern that the officers showed for my
son and his friends, who had to go
through such a traumatic incident.
How minimal and trivial they
thought the well being/life of my
son and friends was, having a gun
pulled on them without provoca-
tion. And an officer of the law,
someone we're supposed to be able
to depend on to protect and serve,
would say nothing will be done
because the gun is registered.

The doctors were wrong and
in what seems like a blur of time
to me now, she passed away
thirty days after being diagnosed
with cancer.
She had asked that no heroic
measures be made to extend her
life and none were used.
She passed from this life to
the next in her home with her
family nearby. It was what she
wanted.
I love my mother and under
the circumstances of her illness
she made the right decision. I
knew it then and I know it now.
We said our good-byes the
night she passed away. I didn't
get to say all of the things I
wanted to say to her, but she
knew that I loved her and that
was the most important.
I would have liked to have
kept her another hour or another
day or even another week.
But, not in as much pain and
suffering as she was having to
endure. To have wanted that, I
felt, would have been selfish on
my part and my mother deserved
better from me.
My mother made the decision,
no one else.
Thankfully, we did not have to
deal with what is going on with
the Schiavo family.
I believe that death is the tran-
sition from this life to the next.
My mother believed that, too. I
know that is where she got her
strength to face her cancer. I also
believe that one day I will be
with her again.
That is why we celebrate
Easter isn't it? Being united
again with our loved ones.

FHP issues telephone scam alert


The Florida Highway Patrol is
issuing an alert to citizens regard-
ing a phone scam that is spreading
throughout Florida. Callers (con
artists) who are impersonating
Florida Highway Patrol Troopers,
as well as other law enforcement
officers, have been contacting citi-
zens by telephone at random advis-
ing them that a family member has
been involved in a traffic crash.
The con artist urges the phone
owner to dial either *72 or 72# in
order to speak with a doctor. By
doing this, the phone owner will
unknowingly permit the caller on
the other end to use their phone
line for making local or long dis-
tance calls which will ultimately be
billed to the phone owner's
account. Citizens who suspect that
they may have fallen victim to a
con artist phone scam must contact
their local phone company to
ascertain how to remove call for-
warding from their telephone for-
warding system.
Most of these phone calls have
originated from pay phones located
within correctional facilities. Some
correctional facilities have started
playing a recording on all collect
calls dialed' from pay phones
within the facility in which the
receiver of the call is advised that


they are receiving collect calls
dialed from a correctional facility.
Many of the calls have originated
from a correctional facility in
Miami-Dade. Please note that if
your phone is equipped with caller
ID, these calls begin with (305)
459 xxxx and the ID name will be
TCG payphones. Be cautioned that
the Miami-Dade Correctional
Facility is not the only facility from
which these calls can originate and
the above listed number is for
informational purposes only.
Victims or potential victims
should immediately contact the law
enforcement agency the caller
claimed to represent. Anyone
receiving a suspicious call is asked
to make notations about the caller's
voice, request a call back number,
and take advantage of the caller ID
feature if they have the equipment
installed on their phone. The
Florida Highway Patrol does not
notify family members of crash
victims via collect calls from pay
phones, nor would we request any-
one to dial a *72 or 72# number.
Anyone who suspects that they
might have been victimized by an
individual who identified him-
self/herself as a member of the
Florida Highway Patrol is asked to
contact their local FHP station.

It's Time for a Change
It's time to seek the Lord while he may tbe found 1I 1 lime I.) call him while He
is near. Prayer still changes things and people We need Io remember 2nd
Chronicles 7:14 K.J.V. states that if Try people arhih is ,: jllcrd t m n name ihali il
humble themselves and pray and seet my lace and lurn ir, m Iheir wicked
ways. Do God's people have wicked way; There i. a problem somewheree
We need to cry to God for our youth. God is still in control of the whole world
and everything on it. He is a merciful, loving and forgiving God. I heard you before you called
and while you are yet speaking I will answer. Are we calling? Are we yet speaking or have we
gotten discouraged and lost faith in our praying or what is the purpose of our praying? God deliv-
ered his people out of bondage in Egypt, out of bondage under Pharaoh. Exodus 12:29-32 K.J.V.
states He is the same today. Sin has taken a toll on his nation. We need to be as Moses, con-
tinue to plead before God not just for me, myself and I, but for this nation and the now. It is time
for a change. The eyes of the Lord are in every place and his ears are still open to our cries What
are we crying for? The reason for it all is sin, as stated in Psalm 34. God allows whatever hap-
pens. He sees and knows it all. Exodus 32 says Moses interceded for the people. God gave
them another chance. When he was about to destroy the whole. He will hear our cries today.
Lord please continue to save the lost everywhere. God is still a mighty deliverer. He parted the
Red Sea and calmed the raging sea for his disciples. We see it storming, so speak now. It is
alright for the waves to fill the ship. But we must remember as long as Jesus is on board not to
panic, He is still in control. Awake or asleep. He can still say peace be still. Any storm will have
to cease if we meet the condition. We still must seek and obey his word. Stay on board. Cry out
to Jesus. He is there at all times.
Humbly submitted, Florence Mims Bradwell

Week March 20-26


Children Act Fast .. .So Do
Poisons! is the annual theme for
,-National Poison Prevention
'Week, and the Florida Poison
Information Center-Jack-
sonville at Shands encourages
everyone to take an active role
,in safeguarding our children
from potential dangers involv-
ing medications and other com-
rimon household chemicals. This
:year, the focus of the center's
-:national campaign is to seek to
-educate the public on the dan-
:gers of accidental medication
dosing errors and how to pre-
vent them:

*Always read the label before
)each use; follow directions pre-
icisely. If you do not understand
rthe instructions, call the product
'information phone number on
'the label (if using an over the
counterr product) or contact
Your pharmacist or physician.
*Strictly follow the recom-
mended and maximum dose
instructions on the package
label for all over the counter
products.
`*Do not use a kitchen utensil
'such as a teaspoon or table-
spoon to adminster medication.
These spoons are not accurate
in measuring medication doses.
-Always use an oral syringe, a
medicine spoon, cup or dropper
when giving children liquid
medication.
*Understand the difference
between "teaspoon" (tsp. or t.),
"tablespoon (tbsp or T.) and
milliliter (ml).
*One teaspoon equals 5 ml.
or 5 cc.
*One tablespoon equals 3
teaspoons or 15 ml.

*Know your child's weight if
the medication dose is based on
weight. Never guess your
child's weight or the amount of
medication to give.
*Use child-resistant caps.
*Never mix medications with-
out first consulting with a phar-
macist or your physician.
*If your child spits out some of
the medication or vomits after
taking the medication, DO NOT
give another dose. Consult with
:a pharmacist or your physician
for additional instructions.
*Never give more medication
than instructed.
aDo not let children see you
:take medication, and never
;refer to medication as "candy".
'*After using the medication
:bottle or container, make sure it
*is placed in a secured location,
;out of search and reach of chil-
dren.

by Congressman Allen Boyd

As our nation's largest entitle-
ment program, Social Security is
founded on the principle that all
Americans, regardless of income,
should be able to live comfortably
and above poverty once they retire.
It is this premise that has made
Social Security one of the most rec-
ognizable and popular programs of
the federal government and one of
the most trusted. Over the
years, Social Security has provided
a consistent level of benefits to
American's retirees, but changing
demographics will challenge the
system's ability to pay these benefits
faithfully in the future. With Social
Security reform necessary in the
coming years, I believe that an
essential aspect of any reform plan
is the need to maintain a strong,
defined Social Security benefit,
especially for low-income workers.
American with higher incomes
are able to take advantage of numer-
ous retirement programs such as
401(K) plans and Individual Retire-
ment Accounts (IRAs) to build
wealth. Low-income workers are
typically dependent on Social Secu-
rity as their sole source of income
after retirement, and any Social
Security reform plan should not
make things more difficult for these
workers. When developing a Social
Security reform plan, we must take
into account the needs of all workers
so we can effectively and fairly
modernize the Social Security sys-
tem for tomorrow's retirees.
Protecting low-income workers
is one of the main provisions of the
Social Security reform plan I have
cosponsored with Congressman Jim
Kolbe (R-AZ). The Bipartisan
Retirement Security Act restores
solvency to the Social Security pro-
gram and does so without reducing
the defined benefits for low-income
workers. Under Kolbe-Boyd, low-
income workers actually do better
than under current law. Our plan


does this through a minimum bene-
fit provision and new savings strate-
gies to encourage all workers to plan
for their retirement.
Currently, nearly 8 million sen-
iors below the poverty level receive
Social Security benefits. Under
Kolbe-Boyd, no individual who
works a full career will have to retire
in poverty. The bill strengthens the
safety net for low-income workers
through a minimum benefit provi-
sion. An individual who has worked
40 years will be guaranteed a Social
Security benefit equal to 120 per-
cent of the poverty level. A low-
income worker is defined as anyone
making $30,000 or less annually,
and the minimum benefit provision
allows these workers to increase
their retirement income by more
than 10 percent. The minimum ben-
efit provision is so strong that it
makes personal accounts a bonus for
these workers.
As their pennies are stretched
thin every month, understandably,


many workers find it difficult to
save. Publicly-administered per-
sonal accounts under our plan would
expand savings opportunities for
workers in this circumstance. The
plan provides a savings subsidy or
"match" for low-income workers
who make voluntary contributions
to their personal accounts. Any qual-
ified worker who makes a $1 volun-
tary contribution to his or her per-
sonal account will receive a govern-
ment match of $150. The govern-
ment would match 50 percent for
each additional dollar up to $600
annually. Workers who are eligible
could designate their Earned Income
Tax Credit refund for this purpose
and qualify for the additional tax
redit. For the first time in Social
Security's history, low wage earners
will be able to accumulate signifi-
cant accounts to pass on to their
families.
Most American workers rely on a
guarnateed benefit from Social
Security and our plan strengthens

this benefit for the workers who
depend on it the most. While Social
Security has kept millions of older
Americans out of poverty, it has
failed to offer low-income Ameri-
cans the ability to accumulate assets
and create real wealth that can be
passed on to their families. Saving
strategies are an important element
of the Kolbe-Boyd plan that will
give these hard working Americans
the tools to prepare for their retire-
ment in ways previously only
enjoyed by higher wage earners. As
we discuss ways to reform Social
Security, we must not forget about
the workers who invest proportion-
ally larger amounts of their income
to Social Security. These hardwork-
ing Americans do this with the
belief that they will be financially
safe and secure upon retirement, and
any reform plan must foster this
belief through a strong, defined
Social Security benefit.

Dr. Cross goes
Dr. Don Cross, along with twelve
other members of the Florida Chiro-
practic Association, spent the first
week of March in Washington, DC,
visiting with our Florida legislators.
The doctors were participating in
the National Chiropractic Legisla-
tive Conference. The group met
face to face with Senator Bill Nel-
son.
Dr. Cross discussed rural health
care issues and the need for expan-
sion of federal legislation to provide
adequate health care for individuals
covered by Medicare and Medicaid.
The group was also concerned
about the quality of health care
available to our local veterans and
'federal government employees.
They provided information to the


to Washington
legislators detailing the lack of pro-
gram implementation in both the
Veterans Administration health care
system and at the Department of
Defense's medical facilities
throughout the country. Congress
has passed legislation that required
the two departments to provide chi-
ropractic care to the active service-
men and the veterans. The Dept. of
Defense had been directed to pro-
vide chiropractic services at 127
facilities in the US and 10 facilities
overseas. These sites were to be in
place by 2005. To date there are
only 42 of the 127 facilities operat-
ing. Dr. Cross stated that the infor-
mation he provided was well
received by the legislators and that
his trip was a positive experience.

Gadsden County Times March 24, 2005 1"


By: Chris Floyd
Emergency Services Director
Capital Area Chapter
American Red Cross

A tornado is defined as a violently
rotating column of air extending
from a thunderstorm to the ground.
In an average year, 800 tornadoes
are reported nationwide, resulting in
80 deaths and over 1500 injuries.
Tornadoes can occur anywhere at
any time of the year. In the southern
states, peak tornado occurrence is in
March through May. Tornadoes are
also closely associated with hurri-
canes and often occur during Hurri-
cane Season, June 1st through
November, 30th. The southern states
are also susceptible to waterspouts -
weak tornadoes that form over
warm water. Waterspouts sometimes
move inland, becoming tornadoes,
causing damage and injuries.

Know what to listen for...
o A Tornado Watch is issued when
tornadoes are possible in your area.
Remain alert for approaching
storms.

o A Tornado Warning is issued when
a tornado has been sighted or indi-
cated by weather radar. Move to
your predesignated place of safety

Stay informed of weather conditions
by tuning into local radio and televi-
sion stations or by listening to
NOAA Weather Radio for the latest
tornado watches and warnings.
Remember, tornadoes occasionally
develop in areas in which a severe
thunderstorm watch or warning is in
effect, so listen for that information
as well. Remain alert!

Know what to look for... Environ-
mental Clues
o dark, often greenish sky


Eligible producers may signup .
for the Crop Disaster Program
(CDP), a program that authorizes
crop loss assistance for producers
who suffered 2003 or 2004 and cer-
tain 2005 crop losses from damag-
ing weather announced Bobbie B
Sellars, CED of the Gadsden
County) Farm Service Agency.
Sign-up began March 14.
The closing date for this sign-up
will be announced at a later date.
"We are pleased to be able to pro-
vide these benefits to producers as
quickly as possible," Sellars said.
"Drought, floods and hurricanes
are unpredictable weather events
that put farmers and ranchers at risk
in producing a dependable and
affordable national food supply."
Eligibility for CDP is similar to
that of the 2001-2002 Crop Disaster
Program. Producers suffering a
greater than 35-percent production
loss and/or more than a 20-percent
quality loss are eligible.
The payment rate for CDP has
been increased to 65 percent of the
established commodity price for
insured crops and noninsured crops,
and 60 percent of the price for unin-
sured commodities.
Previous disaster assistance pro-
vided payments of 50 percent of the
established commodity price for
insured and non-insurable crops and
45 percent for uninsured crops. The

o large hail

o some tornadoes appear as a visible
funnel extending only partially to
the ground.
o some tornadoes are clearly visible
while other are obscured by rain or
nearby low-hanging clouds

Know what you can do... Tornado
Safety

Before the Storm
o Develop a plan for you and your
family for home, work, school, and
when outdoors.
o Have frequent drills.
o Know the county in which you
live, and keep a highway map
nearby to
o follow storm movement from
weather bulletins.
o Listen to radio and television for
information.
o If planning a trip outdoors, listen
to the latest forecasts and take nec-
essary action if threatening weather
is possible.
o Know who is most at risk: people
in automobiles; the elderly, very
young and the physically or men-
tally impaired; people in manufac-
tured (mobile) homes or people who
may not understand the warning due
to a language barrier

If a Warning is issued or if threat-
ening weather approaches...
o In a home or building, move to a
pre-designated shelter, such as a
basement.
o If an underground shelter is not
available, move to an interior room
or hallway on the lowest floor and
get under a sturdy piece of furniture.
o Stay away from windows.
o Get out of automobiles.
o Do not try to outrun a tornado in
your car; instead, leave it immedi-


pa., iin~it limit is $80,000 per person
for all 2003/2004/2005 CDP pay-
ments.
Producers may apply for CDP for
any crops that are eligible for cover-
age under the Federal Crop Insur-
ance or the Noninsured Assistance
Program.
This program results from Con-
gressional passage last October of
the Military Construction Appropri-
ations and Emergency Hurricane
Supplemental Appropriations Act,
2005 (the Act).
SAs part of the CDP implementa-
tion process, USDA has prepared a
fact sheet that contains information
about the disaster assistance pro-
grams. For more information on
these issues, visit USDA's website
at http://disaster.fsa.usda.gov/


ately.
o If caught outside or in a vehicle,
lie flat in a nearby ditch or depres-
sion.
o Manufactured (mobile) homes,
even if tied down, offer little protec-
tion from tornadoes and should be
abandoned.

Each year, many people are killed
or seriously injured by tornadoes
despite advance warning. Some did
not hear the warning while others
received the warning but did not
believe a tornado would actually
affect them. After you have received
the warning or observed threatening
skies, YOU must make the decision
to seek shelter before the storm
arrives. It could be the most impor-
tant decision you will ever make.

Cold Case

Continued from Page 1

der, Green was chased by at least
two men from a path used often as a
short cut in the community from one
group of homes to another. The two
gunmen were shooting at Green as
he ran. He was killed when one bul-
let landed in his neck and another in
this back.
"Someone knows who did it.
Someone saw it. I think they might
be afraid to talk," said Inv. Larry
Smith. Smith has been assigned to
Green's case and he says he will not
give up. "Whoever did it needs to
know that we are out here and we
will get them. Time doesn't run out
on murders," he said.
The crime occurred off Blount
Road and the 19-year-old died in the
back yard of Cornethia Roberts. She
heard shots and went first to the
front door, then to the back. When
she opened the back door, Green's
lifeless body lay a few feet from her
back steps. Roberts heard the shots
but never saw anyone.
At the time, Inv. David Ganious
was told that Green had been in an

altercation with some males from
"the projects" in Sawdust the night
of April 24. Ganious said the fight,
in which Green is alleged to have
won, may have been the catalyst that
led to the killing.
At the time of the shooting, author-
ities felt they had a handle on sus-
pects. But only a week later, the trail
went cold and left authorities look-
ing for witnesses. "No one has come
forward," Young said.
He speculated that crack cocaine
slipped into the rural community
unnoticed and has led to violent
crimes.
"There was a lack of presence of
law enforcement in that area for
years. When there is a lack of pres-
ence, these things escalate. People
come from other counties to areas
like that to buy drugs. Pretty soon
you encounter problems that lead to
a violent end over territory, money,
any number of things," he said.
Young is relying on relentless hard
work from deputies and investiga-
tors, new and improved ways to

Florida. Syracuse, and Oklahoma
were lo"w seed teams that are no
longer around.
Florida blew a big lead in their
first game against Ohio U., and
barely sur\ ived to their second
round game with Villanova. The
Gators fell behind in that one,
caught up. and then couldn't buy a
basket as shooters Matt Walsh and
Anthony Roberson \ent cold.


picked the Gators as one of mn
Sweet Sixteen teams. The\ were 1
of 7 I missed on.
The nine I picked that did sur-
vi\e were North Carolina. LiConn.
Duke, ~ichigan State. Utah, Ari-
zona. Oklahoma State. Illinois, and
Louis\ ille.
Of these. I feel the follow \ inc
will make the final four.

Illinois \dill be a home team in
this one and will come out of it

AUSTIN DIVISION
I predict there \\ill be a pair of
upsets in this one Frida\ night.
Michigan State is pla ing \well and I
think w\ il grind Duke down in one
half of the night's double-header.
In the other half Utah xv ill use a
height advantage to o\ercome \hat
is a gifted but youngg Kentuck\
squad. This w ill make Sunda s
game quite interesting. I think Utah
\ ill meet the other three icgional
winners in St. Louis.
FINAL FOUR
N_\ final four picks are Utah,
Illinois, Lotus\lille. and North Car-

I'll cheat and pick m\ tinal fiur

Turkey season

is here
Deer hunters have their time of year
and duck hunters theirs, but this is
the time of year spring turkey
hunters live for. In the northern
two-thirds of Florida, which in-
cludes the state's Central and North-
west management zones, the spring


turkey season is March 19 April
24. According to regulations of the
Florida Fish and Wildlife Conserva-
tion Commission (FWC), hunters
are allowed to bag one bearded
turkey or gobbler per day, two for
the spring season.
Florida is unique among states be-
cause we're home to two of the five
subspecies of wild turkeys found in
North America. The Eastern sub-
species is found throughout most of


the Florida panhandle. The Osceo-
la subspecies occupies most of
peninsular Florida and is found
nowhere else in the United States.
As with all states Florida's five-
week season ideally coincides with
the peak of gobbling and breeding
activity. On a perfect hunt, a hunter
calls a gobbler in close and bags the
bird. However, turkey hunting of-
ten takes place under less than per-
fect conditions and more times than


not, the gobbler "wins" and the
hunter goes home empty handed.
While any variety of manually op-
erated turkey calls are legal and used
by hunters, electronic calls are pro-
hibited in Florida.
On private lands turkey hunters
can hunt from 30 minutes before
sunrise until legal sunset. On
wildlife management areas, hunting
is allowed until 1 p.m. on open hunt-
ing days.


Notice of Annual Meeting
The Board of Commissioners of
the Northwest Florida Regional Housing Authority will hold
its Annual Meeting

at the Ramada Inn North, 2900 North Monroe St.,

Guy Race

by BYRON SPIRES
Times Staff Writer

He was a.teacher, a coach, a
juvenile court judge, a Sunday
School teacher, a friend and a men-
tor. Guy Race was a man of many
talents and a man respected by all
of those who knew him.
Race passed away last year well
into his nineties. He was strong and
sturdy right to the end. He never
gave in or gave up.
Like all good men, his legacy
,will continue to live in the hearts
of all of those lives he touched.
He was known as a fair and just
man and rightfully so.
He was a man with a deep, abid-
ing faith and belief in God.
He wanted a simple funeral, with
very little fanfare. He wanted to
.lea' this life the way he had lived,
-in a-dignified and stately manner.
SHe was a quiet riui with very lit-
tic i :. -s'. but when he spoke, he
expected attention and he got it.
S.It is only right that such a man
.be given a place in history and Guy
A. Race has received just that. The
Gadsden County Courthouse
Annex has been renamed the Guy
A. Race Gadsden County Judicial
'Complex.
SRace was Juvenile Court Judge
'for over 20 years.
There was no fanfare, just a
*name change on the front of the
'building
For some, it may have been too
little recognition for such a strong
'character as Guy Race. For those
'that knew him, it was the way he
.would have wanted it done.
He would have liked it, too.
Several of those that knew Race
;gathered a few days ago and stood
,in front of the building named in
'his honor. They were there for no
other reason than to show their
respect for the man they loved as a
-teacher and a friend.
A man whose name now rests on
a building that represents a belief
that Race stood adamantly for, the
upholding of the Constitutional
laws of America.

Easter
Continued from page 1

Eggs and coloring didn't cross the
mind of little Mariah Russ, 6, a stu-
dent out on spring break from
Greensboro Elementary School.
Her attention was focused on the
white coconut cake in the shape of
a bunny rabbit wearing a pink face.
"Pink is my favorite color and my
Easter dress is pink, that's why I
like this pink cake," she said. There
was no cake for Mariah Tuesday,
but she is expecting the Easter
Bunny to be generous and leave a
big basket under her bed Sunday
morning.
Over at the Centenary United
Methodist Church Daycare, the
children were busy coloring Easter
eggs, making crosses, and baby
chicks from construction paper.
Bulletin boards and walls through-
out the daycare were festooned
with colorful trappings of Easter
that the children had created. "This
is all of their work. They've been
busy making a variety of things
pertaining to Easter," said Dianne
Peacock, teacher.
Shetera Baker, 5, said she is
looking forward to putting on her
new dress Sunday. After church: an
egg hunt will be in the works. Last
week, the children had their school
hunt on the grounds of the church.
The eggs, said Shetera, are an
important part of Easter. She plans
to eat only one or two. The real joy,
she said, will be in helping color
them.
Four-year-old Isabella Peacock
explained that Easter is important
because "this is the weekend that
Jesus rose from the dead." The
family will go to grandmother's
house for dinner Sunday, but it's
not eggs or ham that have Isabella's
appetite worked up. "I love Aunt
Nonnie's (Donna Gatch) ice
cream," she said. And, according to


Isabella, any flavor will do.
Boy that he is, Hunter Sanford is
ready to hunt eggs and Sunday
won't come quick enough. "I just
want to go hunt eggs. If I can't
hunt them outside then I'll just hunt
them inside," he said. Hunter
claims to have a high tolerance for
eggs and said he can consume
about 20. That's a lot of eggs for
one little boy but Hunter said he is
up to the challenge. Not bragging,
Hunter said he's not bad at coloring-
eggs either. If he colors them, he's
going to eat them. After all of that
egg coloring he's not about to let
any get away.
Here is Hunter's recipe for cool
colored eggs: "Take the eggs out
(of the water I think) but not when
they are too hot or they will burn
your hands. Let them stay a
minute in the cups (presumably
with the coloring) take them out
with a spoon, and say WOW!!
Now, don't forget the spoon," he
explained.
Sara Maclane Mautz, 3, got her
Easter story a little mixed up. As
she tells it, Easter came about when
"Jesus was riding on a donkey and
the Easter Bunny came along. We
celebrate Easter because of Jesus,"
she said. Plans at the Mautz house-
hold include hiding a few eggs in
the bushes and trees around the
house after she has dressed up in
her Easter finery. "My dress is pink
with a Cinderella right here," she
said, pointing to where the hem of
her dress is likely to be.
Throughout the county churches
will hold Sunrise Services. Cente-
nary United Methodist will hold
services outside beginning at 6:30
a.m. Another Easter service will be
held on the Courthouse Square at
9:30 a.m. Other special services to
celebrate Easter have been planned
by most churches, telephone the
church of your choice or to find
any special services turn to the
Church page in this issue.

Dear Gadsden, Liberty & Calhoun

Two years ago I obtained my Florida

*Having to come up with $2000 to $3000
for a down payment, taxes, title and tag


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