Wanda: her tee shirt may be the key


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

The key to unlocking the mystery of the murder of Mistella
Tawanna Mock could lie in the identification of a tee shirt.
The shirt "Wanda" (as everyone called her) was wearing
when her body was discovered did not to belong to her,
according to Inv. Shelton Turner of the Gadsden County
Sheriff's Office. Mock's body was discovered in a creek off
State Road 159, near Midway on March 17, 2000.
"She was wearing a navy blue tee-shirt with the word
"horseshoe" and some sort of emblem on the front left side. If
we can identify the shirt, we might be able to trace it back to
the killer," Turner said. He said Mock's family members say
the shirt did not belong to her.


Wanda lived with
her mother and A
three children in
Tallahassee. Some-
times she stayed
with her father in
Havana. "She lived
in Tallahassee,
Midway, Havana
and people knew
her. In Tallahassee, t[ ii ok t
she could be seen a
lot around Alabama and Georgia Streets. Somebody knows
what happened and somebody can lead us to the origin of this
tee-shirt. All they need to do is come forward," Turner said.


someone out there who knows


Wanda's mother, Betty
Brown, also wants to find the
murderer. "They just don't
know what they took from us.
No matter what she may have
done, what mistakes she made
in her life, she was a loving
mother. I know, because she
was here with me," Brown
said, adding, "I want people to
know that she came from a
loving family. I know there is
what happened to my child.

Gadsden County deputies
are looking for the person or persons
responsible for the Tuesday after-
noon murder of 25-year-old
Anthony Ross of Gretna.
"The 9-1-1 call came in to the
sheriff's office around 2 p.m.," said
Major David Ganious of the Gads-
den County Sheriff's Office.
Ross who lived on Dewey John-
son Lane, was found several miles
from his .home just off Thomas
Court. He had been shot at least
once in the left temple. An autopsy
was performed Wednesday morning
to determine if he received any other
gunshot wounds.

A Quincy man, 46-year-old Craig
Betsey is in serious but stable after
he was hit by a CSX train earlt
Tuesday afternoon.
According to a report on file with
the Quincy Police Department, the
train was west bound on the tracks
at about 25 miles per hour when the

the prime, suspect, was taken into
custody from a house in the Sawdust
Community and questioned shortly
after the shooting. Ganious said at
least four suspects had been ques-
tioned into the early morning hours
Wednesday but to no avail. Ross'
body was found slumped over in the
go-cart that he used for primary
transportation.
"He was known for getting around
in that go-cart. Witnesses told


authorities they heard at least two
shots around the time of the mur-
der." Ross had just left a house at
403 Candy Lane where a card game
of Spades had taken place earlier in
the day. "He hadn't been gone from
the house more than ten minutes
before he was shot," Ganious said.
Gretna police had been to the resi-
dence in the past. "From all
accounts the place was pretty
active," he said.


It is still not clear whether drugs
may have been a contributing factor,
but a small amount of cocaine was
found on Ross' body at the time of
his death, according to Ganious.
A manhunt ensued soon after the
iii,,'i AcI, \,,ij a 1 .1 spcct is reported
to have run from the scene of the
shooting. The suspect was found in
a house where he surrendered. The
man and three others, whose names
were not released, were questioned
and released.
Several law enforcement agencies
including the Gretna Police Depart-
ment, The Gadsden County Sher-
iff's department, Florida Highway
Patrol officers, Florida Department
of Transportation officers and the
Apalachee Correctional Institute's
canine officers assisted in finding
the suspect.
"We're conducting a thorough
investigation and we are putting as
much manpower in as it will take,"
Sheriff Morris Young. He said any-
one with information on this murder
is asked to call the GCSO at 627-
9233. The investigation is continu-
ing.

James, school board


look to give raise to


local teachers, staff


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

Knowing that things may change
for the better or get worse once the
2005 Legislative session is over, the
Gadsden County School Board met
Tuesday afternoon in a workshop
looking for ways to cut. expenses
and save money. Led by Superinten-
dent Reginald James, board mem-
bers said they are committed to giv-
ing employees a raise, if possible,
next year.


But before they could begin to
think about cutting, Finance Direc-
tor Jay Corbett said the board would
have to set aside almost $1 million;
just to make sure there is money tI
cover the rising cost of fuel and
electricity, health care, and the
emergency money, or the rainy day
fund required by the state. "Just to
stay where we are now will cost us
$385,000 next year," he said.
And the bad news is that, accord-

Citizens help stop dog fighting


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
Gadsden County Sheriff Morris
Young said citizens are calling in to
report suspected dog fighting and that
deputies are making arrests and res-
cuing dogs.
Seven dogs were rescued last Sat-
urday afternoon at a residence on
Hogan Lane, after citizens reported
they suspected dogs were used for
fighting. Bartholomew D. Lawson,
26, of 503 Hogan Lane in Quincy
was arrested and charged with dog
fighting, training and control of prop-
erty (used) to train, own, use, or pos-
sess for fighting domestic animals,
and resisting an officer without vio-
lence.
According to the report, a com-
plaint was made in reference to dog
fighting at the residence early Satur-
day. When the deputy arrived around
2 p.m., he wrote, that he immediately
noticed a dog that appeared to be
limping with a large chain tied
around his neck." On closer inspec-
tion, the dog appeared to have multi-
ple wounds on its legs, neck, and
head area. Flies were all over the ani-
mal's wounds and it did not appear
that anyone had been attempting to
care for the animal in its condition."
Minutes after the deputy arrived
Lawson came outside and was told


that a call had been made in reference
to dog fighting. Lawson allegedly
told the deputy that no dogs had been
fighting and that he must have the
wrong address. Lawson told the
deputy to look around if he wanted
to.
In his report the deputy wrote that
he saw a total of seven dogs, five
adults and two puppies. Three of the
animals appeared to have injuries
consistent with dog fighting. One ani-
mal was bleeding from its front legs,
another had wounds to the face, neck,
and back areas, while another had its
ears "nicked" up.
One puppy was tied to a cinder
block with a thick chain to restrict
movement. "This is consistent with
how pit (bill) trainers" build up their
dogs' forelegs and hips for more
intense fighting," stated the report.
The other puppy was chained to a
stake and could not move more than
a few inches. "The animal was unable
to reach its empty water and food
bowls."
The deputy said that when he con-
fronted Lawson with his findings,
Lawson said the animals belonged to
his brother. He later said he did not
want to get his family involved.
All of the animals were picked up
by animal control and taken to the
shelter. Lawson was taken to the
county jail.


State Representative David Coley


passes away after
by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
Representative David Coley died
Friday at Tallahassee Memorial Hos-
pital after a three month battle with
liver cancer. Coley, 43, represented
only a small geographical part of
Gadsden County near Chattahoochee.
A former reporter with the Gads-
den County Times, Coley began his
career here before moving to the Jack-
son County newspaper. "What I
remember most about him was that he
loved the Florida Highway Patrol.
When he got off work he loved to ride
around with them," said Michael
O'Halloran, former publisher of the
Times. Coley later served as a volun-
teer trooper.
After -he kleft'the.p neispjpr btsi-


battle with cancer
ness, Coley worked for former U.S.
Rep. Bill Grant of Madison, Rep. Bob
Trammell and Rep. Jamey West-
brook, both of Marianna and House
Speaker Allan Bense. Coley replaced
Bev Kilmer, who resigned to run
unsuccessfully for the U.S. House of
Representatives.
Tuesday morning the house session
opened with a memorial to Coley. On
the opening day of the session Coley
received a long standing ovation and
words of support from many of his fel-
low lawmakers.
Services for Coley were held
Wednesday in the Johnson Health
Center at Chipola Community Col-
lege.
He is survived by his wife Marti, a
daughter Kristin, and two sons, Vance

Howard Smith new fire chief


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

Quincy City Manager Willie
Earl Banks has named former assis-
tant fire chief Howard Smith as
permanent fire chief. He
announced his selection late last
week. Smith joined the fire depart-
ment on May 15, 1980 and was
both a fireman and a police officer.
He will command the 22-man fire-
fighter unit. Smith replaces former
chief Gene Griffiss who retired
recently.
"We are all male now, but we are
looking to diversify," he said. And
adding some women to the depart-
ment isn't the only thing that Smith
has in mind. He said his focus will
be on manpower, training and facil-
ities.
"I know people get tired of hearing
this, but 9-1-1 changed every-
thing," he said. No longer are fire-
fighters only responsible for fires
around the corner, they must be
prepared to act if a fuel truck spills
oil on the highway, they must know
what to do in case of a chemical


explosion, they ought to know what
to do in case of mass contamina-
tion, they are called on for natural
disasters, and the list goes on.
"Our training is much more
extensive. Right now, at the top of
my list is getting our officers
trained in HAZMAT, that's haz-
ardous materials. Some of that
training can be done in-house but
we will have to go to Tallahassee
for some," he said. Most people
have seen Smith throughout the
city and county for many years
inspecting buildings, teaching fire
prevention and conducting classes
on the hazards of fire.
But people have not seen Smith
as the assistant chief who searched
for and helped write grants for the
department to get new equipment
and pay for training, who has sat in
on meeting giving suggestions how
to best serve the citizens, or who
patiently and meticulously com-
pletes paperwork required by state
and federal officials.
"I 'm confident I made the best
choice in Chief Smith. He knows
our city, the citizens know him and


are comfortable with him and his
abilities. Above all, he knows the
job and he knows what he needs to
do to help move our entire city for-
ward," said Banks.
Smith said the city's fire depart-
ment is part of the Regional
Response Team. "Our people are
able to work with other counties in
the region should the need arise.
Tallahassee has invited us to do
some training with them and we are
going to take them up on it." The
skills can then be taught to the vol-
unteer firefighters who are scat-
tered throughout the county.
And while it may sound strange
for a rural small town fire chief to
be concerned with Urban Search
And Rescue (USAR), Smith said it
is extremely important. "Who do
you think was responsible for
going out, ,finding and" rescuing
people after the last hurricane sea-
son we had?" "With the kind of
weather we have in Florida, it is
very important that our officers
receive that type of training and
more," he said.
And if getting all the officers

Quincy's

chief last

trained isn't enough to keep Smith
busy, the wheels in his head are
spinning as he searches for grant
money for two substations he wants
in the city limits in a few years.
"I'm looking to put a substation
east of town near the hospital and
south of town in the area near Wal-
Mart. Those are the high growth
areas I see 'and that's where you
need to put your services."
A main fire station and two sub-
stations will require more man-
power. "I've thought about that
actually quite a lot. The answer is
in volunteers. We currently have
three volunteer firefighters. I want
to make it 20. I'm also looking to
build a better working relationship


Alice


wit the volunteer
firefighters that are already in the
county," he said.
Since 2003 Smith has taught the
160 hours of class time needed to
be a volunteer firefighter. He plans
to actively recruit volunteers as
well as those who want to become
full time firefighters. He isn't
neglecting the people already com-
mitted to staying on the job. All of
the current fire fighters have been
with the city more than five years.
"We have a real good group of guys
and some of the best trained people
in the area. We have two officers
enrolled in Chipola Community
College earning their AA degrees.
Formal education is the future of


fire fighting and we want our offi-
cers to be ready," he said.
Smith will continue the fire pre-
vention and fire education program
that is popular among teachers and
students. "We are community
friendly. Teachers bring the classes
here and there are times when we
go to them. All they have to do is
call and that goes for civic groups,
churches, and other organizations,"
he said.
When he's not at the fire station, -
Smith hangs up his blue and white
for green. He is a Reserve (volun-
teer) Officer with the Gadsden.
County Sheriff's Office. "I put in
too much time getting my standards-
(law enforcement credentials) to
lose them," he said. Smith puts in a
minimum of 16 hours per month
with the GCSO.
At home he admits he likes to
tinker with things. "I have a little
workshop that I like to fool around
in, making things," he said.
"He won't tell you this, but he's
a good cook, too," said Lt. Buddy,
Peddie.
"Yeah, I guess I do pretty good
with the pots and pans. At home I
cook about fifty percent of the-
time. My wife and I like to cook:
together," he said.


Recruitment of teachers a priority

School board to sign an agreement with FAMU for teacher internships


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

With recruitment of teachers a
priority, Superintendent of Schools
Reginald James presented a draft of
a Memorandum Of Understanding
between the College of Education
at Florida A & M University and the
Gadsden County School District.
James said his staff had met
numerous times with the FAMU
staff to get the draft agreement.
If adopted, the university would
identify and assign up to 45 educa-
tion majors in clinical field experi-
ences (internships) beginning this
fall and every spring and fall there-
after. They would also place up to
20 elementary education majors in
classrooms here to provide assis-
tance in reading, classroom organi-
zation .nJ lirrie management skills.
Between 10 and 20 secondary edu-
cation majors will be placed in the
high schools to assist teachers in the
areas of math, science, social stud-
ies, and language arts.
James said that FAMU is one of
five centers in the nation for
National Board Certified Teachers


and he intends to utilize the pro-
gram to get more local teachers cer-
tified. The college would collabo-
rate with the national Board
Resource Center to develop a plan
to assist Gadsden County to
become a National Board District
of Distinction.
The students participating in the
classrooms will be required to
maintain a journal reflecting their
work. The school district will be
allowed to appear on the FAMU
broadcast network, cable channel
20, to promote future employment
in the county. Finally, the school
would invite the superintendent to
participate in student forums, job
fairs, and class discussions to pro-
mote the school district.
The school district agrees to
pLi c .1i FAMU .-\\ li ld li, ilr i i JI.vl
who want to come here to inItein
and provide round trip transportion
for interns, and guarantee employ-
ment for all qualified FAMU gradu-
ates when they complete all
requirements made by the univer-
sity and Florida teacher certifica-
tion requirements. Supervising
teachers will evaluate interns, and


the district will participate in the
FAMU National Board Resource
Center-sponsored professional
development training in effective
teaching.
If agreed to, the document is not
legally binding, but represents a
commitment by both parties.
James is hoping that the students
who intern in the district will want
to become permanent employees.
"If they come and work in our dis-
trict, we hope they will embrace us.
I hope to interact with them and go
to the spring graduates (in late
April) with contracts in hand," he
said.
In an unrelated matter, the board
heard a presentation from Envision
Credit Union to open a credit union
at East Gadsden High School iii
'I., I I lic q jis, alreadv one at
\\aulla igh c.Alled tlK Waji Eagle
'Credit Union. It is a good program
because we've been hiring students
out of that program," said Al Ham-
mock, marketing director.
The Jaguar Credit Union will
operate just as Envison operates. It
will be coordinated by an Envision
employee and a teacher advisor.


Students at the school will be able
to become members for $2.
The branch is operated by stu-
dents during lunch hour and for one
hour after school. "Not only do the
students learn valuable job skills
they learn how to handle money
and become financially responsi-
ble," said Holly Maddox of Envi-
sion. She said the coordinator
remains on site and the program is
open to any student, faculty or staff
member.
Students must be 14 years old to
open a checking account.
While board members embraced
the concept and the program, some
were concerned about security. "We
will take the same precautions we
do at our other facilities. This is a
branch of Envision, plus we never
leave money around," Maddox
said.
Board member Roger Milton
said he had visited one of the
branches and thinks it will be an
asset for East Gadsden High
School',- ,.' ,-: ,,'; '"' -*":,*: ,,r''ih'W.Mw M, i


Atlanta wants your water


by BYRON SPIRES
Times Staff Writer

What do water problems in
Atlanta, Georgia have to do with
Gadsden County?
Only the future of the
Apalachicola River, Lake Seminole,
and possibly the aquifer that your
drinking water comes from.
How serious is the problem?
The city of Atlanta is currently in
a legal battle with Florida and
Alabama over the future flow of the
Chattahoochee River, one of the
three rivers that form Lake Semi-
nole and the headwaters of the
Apalachicola River.
A federal judge has upheld an
earlier ruling to divert 500 million
gallons of water a day from Lake
Sidney Lanier north of Atlanta for
their projected growth. Lake Lanier
is a 692 mile shoreline deep;lake

There is one safety valve cur-,
rently in place. The ruling will not,
happen until an earlier stay by,
another Federal District judge in
Alabama is dissolved.

Have you ever thought about
just throwing all of your cares
:away and going on a long trip?
I meet a fellow this week who
has done just that.
Eduardo Discoli from
Argentina was traveling through
this area earlier this week on a
trek with his four horses.
The story is in this week's
paper and explains why he is
making such an ardent trip.
I envy him, he is o free spirit
that has taken flight when the
world around him said stay,
work, retire and then take it easy.
There is a real lesson in
Eduardo's decision.
He does not know what lies
around the next curve or where
he will bed down at night.
He depends on the good in
people and has four years of
experiences to show that people
in general are kind to their fel-
low man.
How would you like to wake
up every day knowing that you
Zhad very little, if any control
over what was going to happen
to you that day?


JWATER from p. 3

SThe end result: the "war" over
ater for the Apaljlchi.c.la,. River
ill continue.
SHow important is water, espe
cially good clean water?
SOne case in point is the lake
below Atlanta. Lake West Point on
Ahe 'Chattahoochee River is drawn
,down each year because of the pol-
lution generated by the streets of
:Atlanta. The water is too polluted to

water.
Like the water wars that occurred
in California in the seventies, the
maintaining of North Florida water-
ways may become more than a
regional issue over the next decade.
One group, Apalachicola Bay
and River Keeper, Inc., has stepped
up to the plate to help save one of
Florida's pristine estuaries, the
Apalachicola and Chipola River
basin.
2 The problem according to
TABARK executive director David
:McLain is making sure that every-
'one who has a stake in the.river has
ja voice in what happens to the
Water. McLain recently spoke to the

Real scary isn't it.
When you think about it,'
compared to Eduardo's day we
actually have a lot more control
than we realize.
Some probably think he is
crazy and he might be. But then
he doesn't read newspapers or
watch the news every night. Pol-
itics mean very little to him and
he's doing something he wants
to do.
Maybe we are the crazy ones,
if you think about it a little bit.
He has made his choice and
so have we.
When it is all said and done,
you leave this world with the
same thing that you came into it
with, nothing.
It is what you do between the
nothings that makes up your life.
That is what Eduardo is
doing. He is putting something
between the nothings.
Most of us do it, maybe not to
the extreme that Eduardo does,
but we try to make our lives
have a worth.
He is a very religious man
and prays regularly. It is a vital


Rotary Club of Quincy about the
problems associated with Atlanta's
need for additional water.
SThe cost of giving up the water
McLdiin'idd ( ill'be high.' A iduced
nater tfoiti. could Yniar ti"ib'bs of
flood plain habitat, increased pollu-
tion and the effects on the
Apalachicola Bay could be disas-
trous. "Oyster men don't have any
safety net;" McLain said. They
depend on the bay being healthy in
order to harvest the quality of oys-
ters that are associated with


part of his life he told me and
God is what gives him the
strength to take each day as it
comes.
I couldn't help, but think
about the old song I've heard
hundreds of times, "One Day at
a Time" when he made that
statement.
One of the hardest things in
the world to do is take every day
as it comes, to savor it, to enjoy
it, to relish it while we have it,
because we are not guaranteed
another day are we?
Again Eduardo is putting
something between the nothings.
Life is fragile and recent
events have made that ever so
clear.
We all cannot take off on a
world wide tour and leave all of
our burdens behind. But, what
we can do is make this world a
better place and not let our lives
be only nothing between the
nothings.
We can let our lives be filled
with helping each other, let it be
filled with love for our fellow
humans, let it be filled with life
and friends.
Life is what you make it I
have always heard.
That, I think, is what Eduardo
is saying as he follows his dream
around the world.
Maybe we should do the
same.

determine what amount' of water-
flow is needed to keep the rivers and
bay healthy.
The challenge, he said, is to have
a competentscientific assessmentof
the problem. He feels that the prob-
lem is not going away and what is
needed is an informed public that
has been made aware 6f the conse-
quences of diverting the water flow
of the Chattahoochee River by the
city of Atlanta.

Apalachicola Bay all over the
United States.
The Apalachicola River has been
listed on the endangered rivers list
since March of 2002.
The drought several years ago
dropped the level of the river to a
trickle at Blountstown. If Atlanta is
allowed to remove the water they
are asking for and a drought of that
magnitude occurs again the effects
could be devastating.
In addition dredging of the river
stopped two years ago. There is
almost no barge traffic on the river
and the Army Corp of Engineers is
consolidating many of its offices.

Saturday night


By: .Alice DuPom '"i'


When I was a little girl, if things
didn't go my way I would pout and
if the toy was mine, I would simply
take it and go home. It didn't really
matter whether I was wrong or
right, I just wanted it "my" way.
Glad to say I have learned better.
Quincy Mayor Derrick Elias
reminded me of the little girl Alice
last week when he decided he did-
n't want to have Quincyfest at all if
it was not exactly what he wanted.
Never mind that hundreds of citi-
zens and four other commissioners
were perfectly happy with what an
all-volunteer committee, including
me, had been working on for
months.
The event will be held May 14
on the Courthouse Square. It was
named "Quincyfest presents Blues
and Barbecue" as a theme. The
committee set on the idea because
it was the most inclusive event that
would draw a crowd. The aim was
to hold a small venue this year and
nurture an annual event along until
we got back up to the thousands of
visitors we had when the last Quin-
cyfest was held in 1996.
There was never any intent to
exclude anyone. But with so few
volunteers this year, we could not
take on the kind of "all-inclusive"
festival that Elias kept saying he
wanted, while he never explained to
the committee or anyone else

Correcting comments

Dear Editor,

I must make one correction from
my letter to you on last week. After
listening to a message that was left
on my voice mail last Wednesday
night left by Pastor Scott and talk-
ing with him on Thursday morning,
I feel that I need to change one word
in the quote last week from "hit" to
"get." Pastor Scott said, he said
"come and get one of us," therefore
I don't mind making that change.
However it does not change what he
meant on that day.

Elder Elijah Key, Jr.

Sheriff Dept. woes

Dear Editor,

I have requested some informa-
tion from the G.C.S.D. on three dif-
ferent occasions by letter. I sent my
last letter by certified mail so I
would know if they received it.
The information I have requested
is not something that needs to be
researched. It is public record and
Morris Young will not respond. I
wonder if he is trying to hide some-
thing? Fifty-eight days should have
been enough time to answer my let-
ter. Morris Young I am asking you
to send me the information I am
requesting.


Bobby Owens


Living wills


Dear Editor,

Everyone has heard of the terri-
ble atrocity here in Florida concern-


specifically what he meant by "all-
inclusive." What perplexed us all
is that several weeks ago Elias
came to a meeting, stood in the cor-
ner and listened for almost thirty
minutes as the committee discussed
the event. At that same meeting he
was asked more than once for his
comments, suggestions, and con-
cerns. As I recall, he complimented
the committee and said he had no
problems.
So last Tuesday night when he
tried to derail the event it left many
people, including some citizens
who thought "Blues and Barbecue"
was a good idea and want to partic-
ipate, perplexed.
Thinking that I might have the
wrong slant on this, I mentioned
my concerns to a minister. "I don't
see where he's coming from," he
said, "think about it like this:
you're putting on a car show and
somebody gets mad because they
can't show their boat. For goodness
sake, it's a car show. If you want to
show your boat, go to the boat
show."
First of all there is never going
to be anything that will make
everybody happy. All we want is a
festival that would draw in the
greatest number of people and go
from there. Elias said people have
approached him about why they
can't sell whatever they want.


ing Mrs. Terry Schiavo's life and
soon to be death. Hom terrible is
our society that %omnthimg has not
changed the way one thinks of life
and death. The State has control
over criminals in prison on death
row and also the way they are put to
death. What I ask the public is
...How can we humanely put to
death a criminal guilty of a crime
punishable by death and stand by to
starve, dehydrate, and much more
too private to print, the slow, and
cruel treatment of this woman to
"help" her die?!?!
You know if they are starving
her, she also is being "starved" of a
bowel movement. She will shut
down painfully. What justice or
purpose does this serve? Because I
don't know about you but it is awful
to see the pictures of Mrs. Schiavo
on t.v. displayed for everyone to
see. How can that dignify what is
going on? When you have these
"do-gooders" in society that do no
good but start trouble most of the
time, not much "good" can happen.
There are folks in nursing homes all
over the country with feeding
tubes...some with their minds and
some that don't know
anything...why don't those folks get
national attention?
My son had a feeding tube for
awhile at TMH during his recovery.
He said to me while watching Mrs.
Schiavo that thirst is painful alone
not to mention the other pain he was
enduring. To lie helpless while oth-
ers around you help you because of
dependence. If the media would
show these cases more, perhaps
stem cell research would be under-
stood and the "do-gooders" could
get something done. Yes, it is
painful. Yes, it is terrible. While


There will come a time when there
will be enough volunteers to have
several foods and entertainments.
Only with 15-20 volunteers 2005 is
not the year. Even with hundreds of
volunteers I hope we never get to
the point when Quincyfest is open
to anyone to sell anything they
want. Then it stops being a festival
and becomes a flea market.
Later in the March 22 city com-
mission meeting, a person came
before the commission asking
$5,000 for a festival in Tallahassee.
Elias told the person if he had not
voted to give $10,000 to help spon-
sor Quincyfest, he would vote to
give that person the $5,000. Excuse
me, but that money belongs to the
citizens of Quincy and I don't think
they want to spend it in Tallahas-
see. The Tallahassee City Commis-
sion would laugh a Quincy citizen
out of their chambers if they had
the gall to request money for a
Quincy event that has absolutely
nothing to do with Tallahassee.
But for an elected official to
even consider sponsoring such an
event in another county is some-
thing I just don't get. No matter
how you feel about Quincyfest, it is
in Quincy and it will promote
Quincy in a positive way. Because
a vote didn't go your way, Mr. Elias
doesn't mean you should trash a
project. At the end of the day, you
represent all citizens not just a
handful of people.'What you ought
to do is volunteer to help make this
year's successful like some of your
fellow commissioners have done.
It's not all about you and what
you want, it's about what the peo-
ple want.

my son was in intensive care, a
young man hit a telephone pole after
li.'nc work. He was brought in
with no apparent brain activity. His
parents and I talked briefly about
his condition in the waiting room. I
couldn't talk with them long, it was
too painful for me. His dad was a
sheriff somewhere. He was from a
wonderful. family. What I saw was a
.brave decision on their part to dis-
connect him from the ventilator. He
was a boy barely starting manhood,
now brain dead. I was there on the
floor as they wheeled him out after
he died. I have tears in my eyes now
thinking of that young man.
What, has happened to Mrs. Schi-
avo is. so sad. Did she prepare a
living will? Did she make a pri-
vate decision with her husband? If
she did, that should be the end of
the discussion. I am sad for them. I
am not the one to make the decision
on this matter. I only have an opin-
ion like everyone else. Having a liv-
ing will in place...is that respected
once the "do-gooders" are in line to
protest? I don't think it is the pub-
lic's call. I would like to see the
pain of this horrid situation come to
a quick end for her and her husband.
Having the parents to consider what
is right and wrong is too close and
emotional for them. Can you imag-
ine having a car speeding toward
your toddler in the street with peo-
ple on each side screaming or cheer-
ing? Watching frantically as your
child might possibly make it out of
the car's path?
All we can do for Mrs. Schiavo
now is pray that God's Will be done.
Make it a point today to pray.

Moss in the trees, winding paved and red clay roads, relaxed country
living brought Gadsden county to mind when we were looking for land to
purchase. It has been our home for over 6 years, since moving from
Tallahassee, where we lived for 19 years. However, my husband was born
and raised here, before leaving to attend college at Tuskegee University in
Tuskegee, AL were we met, fell in love and moved here, after college.
Mid point between Jacksonville and Pensacola, there are several
Gadsden County exits to Interstate 10 making it a quick and convenient
commute to the hustle and bustle of neighboring Leon County in
Tallahassee.
Gadsden County is growing, especially with "affordable" new homes
construction in Midway, Havana, Quincy, as well as in Sawdust, near Greensboro. Gadsden County
also growing with several industrial and commercial developments,'which will bring additional .: ,
opportunities.
As of the 2000 census, Gadsden County had a projected 2007 population of 47,425. With -nh-.
growth, safety is a major concern for newly elected Sheriff Morris A. Young. 'This administration is
making a concerted effort to bring crime rates down in our county which in the past have had exces-,
sively high rate of crime," states Young. "Gadsden County Sheriffs office is currently trying to acquire-
more money through grants and Legislative budget requests to increase the number of deputies by teni
to protect our community during the growth of Gadsden County."
US Congressman Allen Boyd is also behind the growth in Gadsden County. "Every family and every-
individual should have access to the most basic human need, decent and affordable hoji. ir' ,,ai.
Congressman Allen Boyd. "Homeownership allows families to build a sense of stability, ndl...uajily-
and self-reliance. I believe that extending quality, affordable housing to every American is an he":e: .e
way to build communities, support families, and help everyone realize the American Dream."
Gadsden County Commissioner Eugene Lamb, Jr. states that the key to growth and economic-
development is having the necessary components in place to attract new businesses. Improving infra-2
structure and trained county workforce to support these businesses is crucial. "I will seek state and fed-:
eral grants to improve our housing stock, and will work with local lending institutions to seek out down:
payment assistance and low interest loans for lower income citizens," stated Lamb. "I will also a:r.
with non-profit groups to build affordable housing communities in Gadsden County."
Premier Properties of North FL, Inc. recently sponsored a Home Buying Workshop at Midway City:
Hall on Feb. 5, 2005, which was sponsored by Mary Youngblood-Shaw. Participants were educated on
"How to become Homeowner" and "How to get Pre-qualified & Qualified for Home Loans." Also, dis-
cussed many of the new subdivisions being developed in Gadsden County, such as Hilltop, Hilltop
North & Monroe Creek Midway, Osceola Park-Quincy, Magnolia Forest-Quincy, Fox Crossing off
Old Scotland Road, Deer Ridge Estates off Hwy 27 North and Sawdust Estates and The Palms @
Sawdust- Greensboro.
Many more exciting new subdivisions are in the planning stages Gadsden County residents and
newcomers have a lot to look forward to.
Because of its close exit to 1-10 and easy access just 15 minutes to Tallahassee, Midway and the
other communities seems to be booming. "Since the city began an aggressive policy of annexation,
about 1000 acres of commercial property and 2000 acres of residential property have been annexed,"
stated Piller. "The most recent annexation is a 1600 acre tract which will include sites for homes and
one or more schools." Winning the 2004 Rural Community of the Year Award, Midway City Manager
Paul Piller states they are looking for new businesses to provide more job opportunities and sustain
the growing community.
There are currently approx. 1225 businesses in Gadsden County. Recently elected by Gadsden
county citizens to oversee tax appraisal for these establishments and homes is Gadsden County
Property Appraiser Clay VanLandingham who stated that his office looks forward to working with citi-
zens of Gadsden County and the Real Estate Community. "Please take an opportunity to visit our web-
site at www.qpublic.net/gadsden for property information in our area," said VanLandingham. Their
office can be visited at 16 South Calhoun Street in Quincy or by calling (850) 627-7168 or via email
clayv.gadsdenpa@tds.net.
SMany, like myself, choose to move to Gadsden Countyto enjoy the rural "hometown" atmosphere.,
Established in 1823, its 500 square miles are bound on the north by State of Georgia, southeast by
Lake Talquin, east by Ochlockonee River and west by Apalachicola River and offers much to the out-
door lover.
We who lives in Gadsden County can experience the nostalgic beauty everyday, so I invite others
to come and enjoy our quiet country style of living.

It's Time


for a


Change

by Florence Bradwell

Now that Palm Sunday has
passed, how many souls did we
loose and carry to Jesus? Jesus
still needs a ride into the city and
countries, however, not on a don-
key's back, but in the heart of
man. We need to loose the drug
addicts, alcoholics, and liars that
we think are bad, but all sin is a
transgression in God's eyes.
There are no special names,
sizes, shapes or color, it is simply
sin, and no sin will enter the
kingdom of heaven. We need to
get loose of ourselves and start
loosing others and carrying them
to Jesus.
What would happen if Jesus
-decided-.to check his house out
todiA 1'N'a'nlurall _.1 0. oul d \%e- be
dri cin 'iot. or would he clean'out
our temples? Who or what would
be left, since he said, "My house
shall be called by all men a house
of prayer." I wonder if Jesus is
weeping over the condition of
our cities today?
It is time for a change. Now
that Passion week is past, we say
are we still sad? Are will still
thinking of the pain and suffering
Jesus went through? Yes, he died
after his suffering, but it was not
his sin, it was ours. Now that
Easter is past and we are no
longer shopping for Easter out-
fits, and searching for Easter
eggs, etc., did we take the time to
search for Jesus? Did we find
him?
The search is not over; he is
still alive and will let us start
today searching for him with all
our heart. If ye seek me,ye shall
find, if ye ask ye shall receive. If
ye knock, the door will be
opened. Lord teach us to seek
after our youth in this day
because Satan is seeking to
destroy our youth but God is still
in control. We are living in a sick
world. Is there a doctor in the
house?
Christ is the answer to this
world's problems today. He goes
beyond our MRIs to find the
problem, and he reaches beyond
the internet. God's word will not
help arthritis, cholesterol, dia-
betes, high blood pressure, dam-
aged liver or kidneys; but God's
word can heal the soul and body.
His grace is sufficient. The Lord
can save us and calm the storm
of depression.
Jesus is the chief crime stop-
per, we all need to call on him -
the line is never busy. We all
need to do as Jonah in the time of
the storm (Jonah 1:6). We need to
wake up and call on our God to
stop the murdering storms, rob-
bing storms, arson storms, and
the sinning storms.
Lord, we ask that you save
the lost, and this sinful genera-
tion before it is too late. Did we
find Jesus? Are we still seeking
to find him today or waiting until
the next year? Today is the time
because tomorrow just might be
too late.

Havana man shot


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
A shooting Saturday night may
have led to a fight Sunday afternoon
that involved a number of people.
According to a report on file with
the Gadsden County Sheriff's
Office, authorities responded to a
call at Riverside Apartments in
Havana in reference to a shooting.
When Deputy Mitchell arrived he
wrote that he spoke with Patrick
Hall, who turned 21 last week, and
observed a bullet wound in the
man's upper right thigh.
"Hall stated that he did not know
who shot him," Mitchell wrote.
Three suspects, Marrico "Goobie"
Pennick, William "Pop" Condry,
and William "Boogie" Randall,
were all said to have been passing a
gun around when Hall was shot.


Cold Case

Even if they came forward anony-
mously."
Five years ago last week about 1
p.m. Jimmy Lee Byrd stopped off
at Double Branch Creek, where it
passes under a lonely stretch of
County Road 159 to do some fish-
ing. He noticed what he first
thought was a manikin, but on
closer inspection discovered it was
the body of a woman. When Byrd
spotted Wanda's body she had been
in the water between 24 and 48
hours. Authorities later learned she
died from blunt trauma to the head.
There is still a $2,500 reward to
anyone with information leading to
the arrest and conviction of the per-
son or persons responsible for
Wanda's death. "We're waiting for
the person to make a slip-up. I
think she was picked up in Talla-
hassee and brought to Gadsden
County. Wanda was born in
Havana and she could have thought
the person was taking her to
Havana using Highway 159,"
Turner s Brown said her daughter
suffered from substance abuse and
described her as fighting the "dis-
-ease." "She told me more thqa,;
once the wanted gether life back
together for her kids. She would
never hurt anyone. She would
never hurt anyone they way they
hurt her. If she hurt anybody, she
hurt herself. Wanda knew she had
to go to God to get help." she said.
At the time of her death, the slim
woman who once was so pretty,
had two sons, ages 3 and 11 and a
five-year-old daughter. "I am rais-
ing them now, but I wouldn't have
it any other way," Brown said.
Brown said she hopes that who-
ever murdered her daughter will be
found. "There will still be a hole

Sunday afternoon, deputies were
called to Riverside Apartments
again, this time due to a "large dis-
turbance in progress and shots being
fired." One woman told deputies
that the three men, Pennick, Condry,
and Randall, were causing problems
with a family member and the Hall
family.
The report noted that when Jerry
Hall (relationship to Patrick Hall
unknown) said that when he arrived
at his apartment Sunday afternoon,
Pennick, Condry, Tarvis Winbush,
and Keldrick Clem were there and
attacked him. When he went into his
home, the men kicked in the rear
door.
Several suspected were detained
and the report stated that the fight-
ing is an ongoing problem at the
complex.


here in my heart and it hurts every-
day," she said, adding, "When they
find out who did this there will be
some closure for me and my grand-
children."
Turner said he is aggressively
looking to anyone who saw Wanda
that day. "With the DNA samples
we have if that person is ever
arrested, we got him," he said.
If you have information about the
death of Wanda Mock or if you
saw anything near the site where
her body was found, call Inv.
Turner at the Gadsden County
Sheriff's Office at 850-875-8825 or
Special Agent Michael DeVaney,
FDLE at 850-410-7645 or 1-800-

EGHS Drill Te

The East Gadsden High School
JROTC competed on March 19 at the
second annual Army Eastern Region
Drill Championships in Landover,
MD. The cadets competed in all five
events of the Armed Division of the
competition: Platoon Regulation Drill,
In-Ranks Inspection, Squad Exhibi-
tion Drill, Color Guard, and Academic
Team. The Drill Team is trained and
under the direction of Master Sergeant
Jerome A. Kerrison and Sergeant
First-Class Michael Williams. This
was the first time that EGHS JROTC
has competed at this level of competi-
tion. All cadets gave a solid perform-
ance in their events, but small mis-
takes hurt them in some of the events.
However, the Color Guard, com-
manded by Cadet Major Raymond
Grant, won the third-place trophy. The
members of the Color Guard are
Cadet Major Donald Harris, Cadet
Major Kenneth Bouie, and Cadet First
Sergeant Lloy'd Winn.
"This is the best color guard ever
out of Northern Florida," stated MSG
Kerrison, drill instructor. "They have
either won or placed in every compe-
tition this school year (third place at
the Florida State Drill and Color
Guard Meet). They competed against
33 other outstanding high schools and
military academies throughout the
Eastern Region of the United States,
so placing was truly a major accom-
plishments. This is also an historical
event for the East Gadsden Color
Guard, placing at state and the eastern
region championships. This has never
been accomplished in Gadsden
County history. We were the only
school from Florida in the competi-
tion."
While at the drill meet, the cadets
were able to watch the Army's Drill
Team perform a truly magnificent
demonstration of exhibition drill rou-
tine to the utmost precision, and they
also visited Washington, D.C., on a
sight seeing tour. This has been
another outstanding year for the drill
team, winning five trophies at the state
meet, including first place in the Male
Unarmed Squad Regulation event and
placing third at the nationals. The
cadets and instructors are to be com-
mended for their hard work, dedica-
tion, and perseverance throughout the
year. We are proud of the cadets. They
have represented EGHS, Corps of
Cadet, Gadsden County, State of
Florida, 6th Brigade, and themselves
-in a superb manner.

But the smiles you've given willforever
be remembered beyond sight
You've done more than your share on odd
days and gave all of your might
We will give up anything to have you back but it's not our choice
Since we know that you're in the Lord's hands we pray and rejoice
We can say that we miss you a thousand times
over plus cry you a river into a stream
We could even wish and pray you back into
our lives and see you in dreams
But you're in a far better place now just
continue to be the Lord's little pearl
While we miss you here on earth and continue
to remember you as all of our favorite girl.
May the Lord keep you Grandma

train's hor aggressively, but that-
Betsey appeared not to hear or
notice the horn.
"The driver stated that Betsey
turned around, looked back a the
train and continued to walk west on
the same side of the track with his
back turned away from the train."
The engineer continued blowing the
horn until the train, that was unable
to stop, struck Betsey. He was car-
ried about 10 feet down the track
and landed about five feet into the
grass on the left side of the track.
Betsey did not want to be taken to
the hospital and told police that he
had only "fallen and bumped his
head."
"Upon making contact with Bet-
sey," the officer wrote, "I smelled a
strong order of alcohol coming from
his breath. Several witnesses stated
that Betsey had been drinking alco-
hol heavily all day."

ing to Corbett, the district stands to
lose another 120 students to other
counties. When students leave the
district dollars go with them. Cor-
bett speculated over the past eight
years 3,000 students have left the
school district. "That would be
about $12 million dollars that we
didn't get from the state," he said.
"We've lost 3,000 students but we
haven't lost any staff. There is no
way a business can survive if they
lose 3,000 customers and not lose-
any employees. That doesn't equate
to good business practice. We're
going to have to lay off. $12 million
dollars has walked out the door and
we haven't laid anybody off?" asked
Issac Simmons, board member.
He said the district could save
money by eliminating consultants
and contractual services. "A lot of
this $10,000 and $25,000 consultant
work could be stopped and done in-
house," he said.
Consolidating bus stops would
save too, he said. "Every morning I
see a bus stop four times to pick up
children within 200 feet of each
other. They're standing there watch-
ing as the bus stops and picks some
up, goes another 75 feet and picks
some up. Why can't they all get
picked up at one stop?" he asked.
Simmons said he would not hire
administrators back who went out
on the drop program at least not at
the same salary. "If they are in the
drop, then let them stay dropped.
We're hiring a lot of people we
brought back on the drop that
shouldn't be brought back," he said.
He also wants to consider privatiz-
ing food services. Last year the food
services area was over budget
$300,000 and the school district had
to cover the cost. "If we can do bet-
ter we need to look at that," he said.



Notice of
City of Midway
City Council Meeting

Notice is hereby given to all
concerned that on April 7, 2005
at 7:00 p.m. at the Midway City
Hall, Midway, Florida 32343.
The Midway City Council will
meet and hear the following
application:

1. Renew & Co. Setback
Variance Request for new site
built home in Hill Top North.

Interested parties may inspect
the applications at the Midway
City Hall or appear at the
meeting to become informed or
to be heard with the respect to
the proposed developments. For
more information, please contact
Midway City Hall for more infor-
mation 574-2355.


Simmons also wants schools to
operate within their budgets. "Most
schools go over budget and we have
to amend our budget to pay their
bills and a lot of these expenditures
are unauthorized. We want to give
raises next year, but we can't do it if
the money isn't there," he said.
Judge Helms said he agreed with
most of Simmons' cost cutting sug-
gestions but not all. "Schools have
been spending more than they gen-
erate. It's been going on for years
and they (schools) think the county
office will take care of it (paying
their bills). Well, the county office
doesn't have the funds to take care
of it anymore," Helms said.
James said he looked at Jackson
County which has privatized its
food service and at Leon County
which has not. He prefers to keep
the food service under the school's
umbrella, but would like to see a
"more effective and efficient lunch
room manager, if I can find the right
person," he said.
Simmons said the district has too
many schools and wants to scrap the
Gadsden Elementary Magnet
School altogether and put those stu-
dents and teachers back in the gen-
eral population. James said that not
only does he want the keep the mag-
net school, he has plans for expand-
ing it. "I support the magnet school.
I have a plan, which I won't reveal
at this time, to expand that concept,"
he said.
Simmons, who for the past two
years fought to keep Chattahoochee
High School open with less than 150
students enrolled in 7-12, Tuesday
night suggested that Havana Middle
and Havana Elementary School be
merged to save money. "The ele-
mentary school's enrollment has
declined and the middle school is
under-utilized. We have to bite the
bullet and close some schools," he
said. Other board members did not
respond to that suggestion.
James said he talked with a com-

4t. John Elementary School News


On March 17, Jan Summerford of the Florida Department of Agriculture came to read to Mrs. Cohen's
and Ms. Davis' classes. She read a book relating to agriculture titled, Groundhog's Garden. All during her
reading, Ms. Summerford pulled out vocabulary words and tied the kids background knowledge to the lit-
erature/agriculture. The students listened attentively and asked questions. Ms. Summerford also shared
information on her Agriculture Learning Barn. Ms. Davis' class shared some exciting agricultural activities
they were already doing in their classr They also shared how they made compost. The compost was sand
mixed with leaves and plastic. This was done to help blend everything together. The students added greens
and orange peels for moisture and nutrition. As a result it turned into compost material. Being read to is
always such a treat.

Reading Night at St. John Elementary
One would think that once the FCAT was over that learning stopped.
Well, not at St. John Elementary School. Learning is still our top prior-
ity. Mrs. Knight, our Reading Coach, does not differentiate between the
grade levels.
Once the FCAT was over she shifted her gears to our first and second
graders. On March 17th, Mrs. Sarah Knight hosted a Parent Night for
first and second grade parents. The theme was SAT 10 preparation.
Specific topics covered were fluency, vocabulary power, and compre-
hension strategies.
The kids were given a fluency test, which was timed for one minute.
ThIe parents got the chance to hear their children read with enunciation
and emotion. The parents could see their child's strengths and weak-
nesses. After the timed minute was up, the children graphed their
results. Graphing is a visual device used to create baseline data and to
show growth.
Mrs. Knight gave the parents tips on test-taking strategies. Ms.
Hagins, our guidance counselor, shared the student pupil progression
plan with parents. The parents and students then participated in inter-
active sample reading problems. At the end of the meeting, each child
was given a bag with a book, crayons, notecards, SAT 10-practice mate-
rial, and a pencil.

Argentine horseman makes trek to bloodline's origin tl 7 L


by BYRON SPIRES
Times Staff Writer

One of those frog strangling early
Spring rains fell outside as Eduardo
Anibal Discoli broke bread with a
host of new friends at Clyde and
Ann Blount's Providence Farm last
Saturday evening.
The room filled with the talk of
horses and as the rain peppered
down, the horse talk got louder.
Had you walked into the room it
would have taken you a few min-
utes to realize that Discoli spoke
little English. But, the conversation
lagged only slightly as the cama-
raderie over a shared love of horses
transcended the language barrier.
Discoli, an Argentina native, a
lone sojourner, is making his way
across the United States on a trek to
take his beloved horses back to the
beginning of their blood lines.
Few people realize that horses are
not indigenous to the Americas.
They came to the new world from
Spain and that is where Discoli
plans to take his brood of four
horses, back to where they came
from.
After the horse talk subsided Dis-
coli sat at an oversized dinner table
and talked about his exploits.
Virginia Castro-Blanco, a new
friend he met in San Antonio, Texas
and her daughter Maria and son-in-
law Jose Olmedo had caught up
with him at the Blount Farm and
were able to help translate.
Castro-Blanco's children grew up
in Argentina and Jose, a member of
the Argentine Air Force, is sta-
tioned at Moody Air Force Base in
Valdosta as a pilot trainer.
Castro-Blanco gave Discoli a
mustang to replace a horse that he
lost along his journey. Among his
horses he has a Peruvian Paso, a
Azteca given to him in Mexico, and
a Columbian Pasofina.
He began his journey, he said,
four years ago from his home in
northern Argentina and has traveled
nearly 12,000 miles on his quest to
reach Spain and eventually on to
North Africa.
It has been a long and arduous
journey through hostile countries
and over treacherous terrain.
In Bolivia he spent one night in a
one room house with 14 other peo-
ple.
It was unclear what country it
happened, but his horse was star-
tled by a rattle snake and he and the
horse fell into a ravine. He suffered
a concussion and lost the feeling in
one of his legs. After a month of
recuperating he continued on his
trek.
In Colombia he found himself in
the middle of FARC territory.-
Colombia has a volatile govern-
ment and several factions are fight-
ing to take over the country. The
FARC are the insurgents who have
a reputation of taking hostages for
ransom.
Doscoli said he was lucky. He
stayed with several families at
night and travelled during the day.
He found out that the FARC were
only active at night. His only prob-
lem, he chuckled, was sleeping
with both eyes open. Doscoli added
that the para-military units were
very generous to him and helped
him along the way. He said they
would call ahead as he travelled
and kept tabs on him as he moved
across the country.
To protect himself he also wore a
Red Cross flag draped across his
chest.
As he crossed through northern
South America, Central America,
and Mexico he encountered a lot of
poverty.
"There are many poor people in
those countries," he said.
Over his travels he has encoun-
tered many problems with language
and cultures, but the goodness of
people prevailed and he was able to
continue along his cho Doscoli
said that a priest in Colombia told
him that he had the shield of God
protecting him.
"I pray to God every day, every
morning I pray, it is very impor-


daily prayer.
He has also found that as he trav-
els he encounters many laws, espe-
cially those pertaining to horses.
In Panama his horses were quar-
antined for seven days and he was
not allowed to see them. When he
entered the United States he waited
30 days before he could continue
his journey. "I accept the laws of
many countries," he said.
Doscoli understands the need for
laws, he is a lawyer in Argentina.
His family owns a ranch and he
grew up working on the family
farm.
His desire to lay aside his life for
his dream of taking the horses back
to their origin began when he was
12 years old. He had been to a rela-
tive's funeral where the casket was
carried by a horse drawn carriage.
He doesn't know why, but that
started him thinking about his
dream. Work superseded his
desire until he decided he was
going to follow his dream with the
horses.
He is the oldest of four at 53, his
brother is taking care of the family
farm. Divorced, he has two chil-
dren, a son and a daughter, and
they have encouraged him to fol-
low his dream.
There is one modern device, he
carries: he has a cell phone he uses
it to keep in contact with his fam-
ily.
He believes it will take another
four years to complete his journey.
Once completed and back home he
will retrace his journey, but this
time not by horse. He said he will


write a book about his experiences.
Now he just trudges along at 20
or so miles a day. He stays where
he is welcome and moves on the
next day.
Since being in the United States
he has found the hospitality to his
liking. In Argentina, Americans are
not held in high regard. Doscili said
that the Argentinian press colors
America as a greedy and self-cen-
tered country a far cry from what
he has found crossing four states.
"They are wrong," he said.
He left Providence Monday
morning on his way to "Val-
doosta," he knows it will take a few
days and that is not a problem he
said.
He was waylaid in Quincy for a
few minutes when one of his horses
nearly stumbled in front of a car.
The local authorities helped him
and escorted him and his entourage
to the city limits.
"Had trouble with police," he
laughed and waved.
He was now back in his element
on the open road with only miles
ahead of him. Like his ancestors,
the Gauchos of the past, he was on
his journey to find what lays ahead.
He and his horses headed east, a
pale blue cape covered his shoul-
ders and a leather hat hung across
his back. His weather worn face
glared red of the miles he has
already gone and his eyes looked
ahead to the next mile.
He and his herd vanished over
the next hill, gone in the early
morning sun on his trip to follow a
dream.

next day.


Transition Payment


Program (also called "Tobacco Buyout").





You've heard about it.


Now be a part of it.



This is it. The Federal tobacco marketing quota system is over. No more plant-
ing restrictions. No more marketing cards. No more price support loans.
Instead, the USDA's new Tobacco Transition Payment Program will provide
money to eligible tobacco quota holders and producers to help in this transi-
tion that ends the old system. But sign up now or you will not get a 2005 payment.


> Did you own a farm as of October 22, 2004, with a 2004 basic
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?


Please sign up between March 14, 2005, and June 17, 2005,

at your local USDA Service Center.

Call 1-866-887-0140 or visit http://offices.usda.gov
to find your local county Service Center.

A devout Catholic, Doscoli said
that he calls on Saint George the

daily prayers. "I go every day

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


SPaying 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.

and you get a great deal!
The best part is we have family on the lot,
NOT HIGH PRESSURE SALES PEOPLE.

tell you what it will cost and buy it for you.
We appreciate you're supporting us. Come

EGHS tracksters run into bad weather


The East Gadsden track team was making
progress in the Florida Relays Friday in
Gainesville.
Tracy Lewis jumped a 16-8 in the Long Jump
and placed fourth in what is a national caliber
meet.


Vic Collier and Xavier Jackson ran well
enough to qualify in the 100 Meters, and the
4X100 relay team of Collier, Jackson, Phillip
Kirkland, and Davinte Grice had qualified for the
finals in that event.
Very bad weather caused the cancellation of


Saturday finals and the teams did not get to com-
pete.
The East Gadsden team coached by James Pel-
ham and Doris Drake will run in the Capital City
Classic this Saturday at Childs High School.

Aucilla, Sneads win Spring Classic openers


Aucilla defeated Vernon 10-2 and Sneads bested
Malone 7-2 in Tuesda 's opening games in the
Baseball Spring Classic being held at Chatta-
hoochee's Therrell Field.
Drew Sherrord pitched the win for Aucilla and
had 3 hits including a two-run homer. But the
high light of.the game came in the fourth inning
when Aucilla's Casey Gunnels turned an unas-


sisted triple play after Vernon's first two batters
had reached. From his shortstop position Gun-
nels caught a line drive, stepped on second base
to get an out on the runner who was heading for
third, and then tagged the runner from first to
complete the triple-killing. Gunnels also had a
single and 3 runs scored in the contest.
In the Sneads win, Tyler White was the win-


ning pitcher. White also had 2 rbi's with a pair of
hits.
Justin Brown added 3 hits for the Pirates and
Josh Ellis had 2. Sneads and Aucilla will meet in
second round action Friday.
Munroe, Altha, Liberty Co., and Chipley com-
pleted the first round with games Wednesday.

"How's fishing?"
The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission's
(FWC's) recently restructured Divi-
sion of Freshwater Fisheries Man-
agement is opening communication
lines with anglers. The agency
wants to learn more about what it
would take to improve fishing
opportunities here.
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/. Later, the FWC will publish a
summary of what anglers say about
the state of freshwater fishing here
in the Fishing Capital of the World
and what the agency needs to do to
make it better.


Tallavana

boys in

tournament
Once again the Tallavana Christian varsity boys
basketball team was honored to represent Gads-
den County in the National Association of Chris-
tian Athlete's Division IV National Tournament.
The boys did not bring home the championship
trophy, but they did represent our community in


a way that would'make all of us proud. They
played hard and did their best, and acted like
young gentlemen should.
They finished 7th in the 24 team tournament in
their classification, a truly great accomplishment
for our small school.
On behalf of Tallavana Christian's parents, stu-
dents, faculty, and staff, I want to thank the busi-
ness and individuals that helped with financial
donations to make our trip to Dayton, TN possi-
ble.
The time we had to raise the money was short,
but this community once again proved that they
deeply believe in our young people, and


responded in an overwhelming way to support
them. The team wanted me to express their deep-
est appreciation to all.
Finally, I want to say again a great big thanks
to Joe Ferilito, Joey Ferilito, and Susie Morris
and our two local papers for their great coverage
of high school sports in Gadsden County.
It means so much for players, their families,
and the schools to see their efforts so well writ-
ten about and appreciated. We are truly blessed to
have these writers covering our sports. I person-
ally am blessed to have them as my colleagues
and most of all as my friends. In sports for Christ
and kids, Coach Tom Bolton.

Like always in this county there

FINAL FOUR PICKINGS
I didn't do too bad last week as
three of the four teams I picked to
make the Final Four are heading for
St. Louis.


Louis ille. North Carolina, and
Illinois were the teams I picked that
survived. Utah \\as the other team
I picked but Mlichigan State \%on
that region and the Spartans are
joining Ben Ten foe Illinois in the
Big Ball.
The \\a\ the Illini bounced back
to win their region final game Sun-
day against Arizona makes me
think this is the year for Illinois so I
predict they will slip by Louisville
Satirda\ and then meet North Car-
olina Monda\ and \\in it all.
Buddy's Jack Harnett, and Jerry
\V\nn agree with me, though both
say the\ \\ill be pulling for
Louisville. A \ in for the Cardinals
is not out of the picture but again I
just think it's the year of the Illini.

product bin, new and
replacement dust collection
equipment, installation of
diverter valves and air
slides, and changing allow-
able hours of operation for
various activities. The con-
struction will not result in an

The Youth Tour
was inspired by the late President
Lyndon B. Johnson. As a senator
from Texas he addressed the Annual
Meeting of the National Rural
Electric Cooperatives Association
(NRECA) in 1957. AIf one thing
gaae.out of the meeting @ Tohnson
said, he hoped it would be Asending
youngsters to the national capital
where they can see actually what the
flag stands for and represents.@
Beginning that year, some Texas
cooperatives sent groups of young


people to Washington to work in
Senator Johnson=s office for the
purpose of learning about govern-
ment.
Iowa and Illinois coop-
eritive, followed suit and
h\1 I '. Youth Tour had
Ir,-. i.n [.-, 130 students.
The Yi.'iuth Tour now has
...' c 1.5,00 students par-
l. [iip.,i,,; each year.

In Tallahassee, the
T. TalqIuiii students joined
tudelnt[ from six Florida
c.opiLr.ll"es. Two repre
S ll.it.,tl' i from NRECA
__ 'i'lu.' 'ited a congression-
i.l Iir.iglu workshop for
i l. t-udeirits. Our students
toulid uI., first hand that
bciii elected involves a
.Im H-. i than just packing
ulp 1ijJ moving to our
.ti-,l=: capital to
become a member of the
ightery 110th Congress.
The group was divided
.into teams, each representing a
newly elected member of congress.
Each team is given a specific biog-
raphy, district description and politi-
cal party/staff information. Teams
select staff, choose party leaders,
and deal with issnes._ofpublicpoli-.
cy. Policy issues are discussed and
each team has to reach a consensus
to solve the problem in a given peri-
od of time.
This fast paced, political challenge
immersed these students in a real


world experience of the legislative
process and allowed them the
chance to develop an understanding
of a day in the life of a
United States
Congressperson.
With increasingly
tight deadlines, team
members had to
decide which bills to
support, which com-
mittee posts to seek, --
how much time to "
devote to fund raising
and what tradeoffs to
make amidst con-
stituents, party, lobby-
ists, etc.
There were 11 rounds Aimr
of decision making.
The final round is managing a cam-
paign budget for re-election. The
Congressional Insight computer
simulation gave teams instant feed-
back Within seconds, the teams
learned how their decisions helped
or hurt their chances for re-election.
The feedback came in the form of
poll results, memoranda and district
media coverage. Just life real life!
The group visited the Florida
House of Representatives. While
seated in the visitors gallery, they
were given an opportunity to
..ohbserxe-bills..-beingintroduced and
voted upon. Seeing a bill navigated
through one branch of government
was insightful. The group nest saw
an IMAX movie and visited the
Planetarium while at the Challenger
Learning Center.

March is National
Nutrition Month
The Florida Department of Health
(DOH) celebrates March as Nation-
al Nutrition Month, an education
and advocacy campaign sponsored
annually by the American Dietetic
Association (ADA). This year's
theme, Get a Taste for Nutrition,
promotes a balanced diet, along
with daily physical activity, for


healthy living.
According to Behavioral Risk
Factor Surveillance Survey (BRF-
SS), the prevalence of obesity in
Florida almost doubled from 10.4
percent in 1998 to 19.9 percent in
2003. The BRFSS also states that
only 25 percent of Florida's adults
consumed the daily-recommended
servings of fruits and vegetables.
Combining an active lifestyle
with nutritious, low-fat foods can


help control weight and reduce the
risk of many chronic diseases in-
cluding cancer, high blood pressure,
diabetes, heart disease and stroke.
To maintain a healthy lifestyle,
DOH and ADA recommend the fol-
lowing tips:
*Maintain a balanced diet with a
variety of foods including vegeta-
bles, whole grains, fruits, non-fat
diary products, beans, lean meats,
poultry and fish.


*Eat greater amounts of fruits and
vegetables, and fewer high-calorie
foods.
*Enjoy foods in healthy, moderate
portions.
* Choose foods rich in vitamins,
minerals and fibers over those that
are processed.
* Balance food choices with physi-
cal activity to achieve and maintain
a healthy weight and lifestyle.
DOH provides resources and in-


March 31, 2005 Gadsden County Times 7B
formation on nutrition and healthy
living through programs such as the Y
Obesity Prevention Program, Y
Women, Infants & Children (WIC)
Program and the Child Care Food
Program. Each of Florida$B!G(Js
county health departments is also
involved in promoting healthy liv- it
ing within local communities.
For more information, contact
your local county health depart-
ment, or www.doh.state.fl.us.
