by ALICE DIU PONT
Times Editor
Linda Neall just wants to know a few things Who killed her precious
child Felesha Renee Tatum' Did she need me before she died?
"Fefe" as she was called
by family and friends is
one of the cold case mur-
dees the Gadsden County
Sheriff's Department
wants badly to solve.
In estigator Shelton
Turner said he is leaiin no stone unturned in the case. What is different
about this case.from some of the other cold cases. is that Tatum's body
was not found unnl a rear alter she disappeared. Her remains. which
could not be readilN iden-
tified \%ere found on
n W\Voodberr Road, off
h i U.S. Highway 90. behind-

but 0t was last seen leaving her
.home on Nov. 23, 2001.
She as found on No\.

S. walking near the area.
Just six days before her
Sij20th birthday Fefe disap-
peared. November is a
hard month for Linda

members and i-iends also knew something was %rong.and Fete was
reported missing, With no leads and no witnesses-corning forth, authoti-
ties didn't know where to look. Intervlews'yielded no clues, either..
"Sometimes %\hen a crime has been committed people don't
want to come forward right away. They may be afraid or they may not
want to 2et involved. Noxw is the time for people to get involved and
help bring some closure for these families." Turner said.
Nealy too x ants closure. She says she stays busy so that she
won't have to think about her bubbl., fun-lo, ing child. "The hardest
part." she said. "is not knowing. My other children want to kno%, what
happened to their sister and I can't tell them." She fights back the tears.
but it isn't always easy. Late at night she will sometimes allow her mind
to travel back to November four Nears ago.
"'I know it's not good. Bui I keep %wondering what happened to
my child. Somebody around here knows \\ hat happened to her and they
know who did it. It breaks my heart because I know that my child must
have needed me and I wasn't there." she said. Tear drops stain her
cheeks and as she dries them. they aie soon replaced by others. Nealy
doesn't want to cry. She wants to clean house, work in the yard. or do
anything that will take the pain asmay for a little v tnle. "'It goes away
sometimes. But there is not a day' goes by that I don't think of her.Y
"No amount of information is too small or insignificant. With

Murder charges


Teen arrested


for 2003 killing


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

Gadsden County deputies arrested
Terrell Powell, 15, last Thursday
and charged him with first-degree
murder in the killing of William
Moses Wilson in August of 2003.
Wilson's case is the first of 16 cold
cases Sheriff Morris Young opened
recently keeping his campaign
promise to try to solve murders in
the county, some dating back more
than 30 years.
Powell, a student in the New Hori-
zon Program housed at Carter-Par-
ramore Academy, was also charged
with armed robbery with a firearm,
armed burglary and grand theft.
Young said that Powell's motive in


killing Wilson appeared to have
been robbery. He said Powell said
that he "felt like Williams had some
money on him." Powell allegedly
told deputies that the gun went off
and he didn't mean to kill Wilson.
Powell, who was 13 at the time of
the killing, had been a suspect all
along, but new evidence was able to
link him to the murder. Exactly what
the new evidence is was not
released.
Thursday morning, deputies called
the resource officer at the school
who was asked to get Powell out of
class so they could talk to him. Pow-
ell bolted from the school and 'ran
through a heavily wooded area lead-

Jordan charged


in Gretna death


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

The testimony of two people
helped the Gadsden County Sher-
iff's Office apprehend a Gretna
man, Clinton Jermaine Jordan, 21,
and charge him with first-degree
murder in the shooting death last
week of 25-year-old Anthony Ross.
Jordan was taken into custody Fri-
day afternoon.
According to a report on file with
the Gadsden County Sheriff's
Office, a witness allegedly told
deputies that Jordan contacted him
on March 30, 2005, and told him
that he "wanted to do Amp" (the
name Ross referred to on the street).
Jordan allegedly asked the man to


participate, but he declined because
he was on probation.
The man told authorities that he
did- not think Jordan was serious
about killing Ross until he heard
about the shooting the next day.
The day of the murder, another
witness came forward and informed
authorities that he may have given
someone a ride who was involved in
the murder.
The young man, according to the
report, frequently acts as a "quasi-
taxi" for local people who need
rides around town. He told authori-
ties that he took a young man to the
Sawdust Community "who came
running out of the woods from the
area of the incident."

Alvin Wright, a 57-year-old
employee of North Florida Vault
Co., was electrocuted Tuesday
morning in the Sawdust area.
According to Inv. Shelton Turner
of the Gadsden County Sheriff's
Office, the company received a call
from the property owners with a
request to bury a horse that had
been killed early Sunday morning.

Thomas warns


board: county


faces $200,000


in shortfalls

by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

Clerk of the Court Nicholas Thomas told the Board
of County Commissioners they are looking at "some
potential (financial) problems". The shortfalls, he said,
Swill occur in the county attorney's budget, the county


manager's budget, in welfare and medicaid, the D & S
(Veteran's Transportation) contract, and the county-
manned dumpsters.
"You're looking at over $200,000 in shortfalls and
you have about $60,000 in the contingency fund,"
Thomas said.
In other matters, Louvenia Sailor told commission-
ers she wants something done, and done quickly, about
the run-off from Emmanuel Gardens, a housing devel-
opment north of Quincy. Sailor reminded commission-
ers that the land near her property was not suitable for
construction when developer Maurice Evans gotv
approval to build 25 homes.
"At this point Emmanuel Gardens is not a garden, it's
a muddy mess and just what we told you would hap-
pen, has happened and no one listened to me," she
said.
The runoff from the property, Sailor said, is causing
her a lot of problems. Recent rains only made matters

Brown gets nod as


Gadsden manager

by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
The Board of County Commissioners unanimously voted to
offer the job of county manager to Marlon Brown of Tallahassee. Brown
is currently the assistant to Tallahassee's city manager Anita Favors. Not
much was said about Brown during the meeting, except that he was the
top rated candidate to be interviewed. "Mr. Brown got 47 out of a possible
50 points," Arthur Lawson said.
In all, the county received about 25 applications for the position. The
field was narrowed to four, all men, to be interviewed.
If Brown agrees to the terms of a contract that will be hammered out
soon with the County Attorney Thornton Williams, Chairman Ed Dixon
and Interim Manager Arthur Lawson, he will be hired if the entire board
approves of the package.
Others in the final four were: Cohen Bond of Lee, Peter Herbert of Ver-
non, and Davin Suggs of Tallahassee.

Recreating

Recreation

New director wants us off the couch!


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
If the new Director of Quincy
Parks and Recreation has his way,
the good people of Quincy will be
getting off the couch and getting
some exercise.
Reginald Cunningham said for
the most part the kids are okay, its
the adults he wants to get
acquainted with physical activity.
The city manager, Willie Earl
Banks, announced that he hired
Cunningham, who was the assistant
Parks and Recreation Director and
the top man.
"He has been with us for a long
time. He knows the structure, he
knows what the public and I expect
of him," Banks said.
Spring and summer are usually


busy and this year is no different.
In addition to maintaining the usual
programs, adult soccer is taking
hold in Quincy. "Its has really gone
big since we have the league. The
world Cup will be played here on
April 10 and we're expecting about
800 people," he said.
Other activities that have taken
off include adult aerobics and yoga.
"We have excellent classes in both
and they're getting pretty full. The
youth sports of baseball, basketball
and football are always very popu-
lar," he said.
"I really want to include more
adult programs though. There is a
lot of obesity, diabetes and other
diseases related to the fact that peo-
ple aren't exercising. We have to

Boyd speaks on Social Security


by BYRON SPIRES
Times Staff Writer


SU. S. Congressman Allen Boyd
of the 2nd congressional District
,vas in Quincy last week stumping
fis new Social Security bill.
SBoyd had the undivided attention
.f a room full of local residents and
*:ity employees in the Quincy com-
inissioner's room as he explained the
Advantages of his reform bill.
SHe is co-sponsoring a bipartisan
social security reform bill with
Republican Congressman Jim Kolbe
from Arizona.
] The Kolbe-Boyd Retirement
securityy Act, Boyd said, would
storee solvency to the social secu-
'ity program without reducing bene-
,its for low income workers.
. Boyd said that under the Kolbe-
3oyd bill low income workers
;Vould actually do better than under
the current law.
7 The current Social Security pro-
gram has come under scrutiny over
rhe last few years 'as reports have
circulated that the social security
program is on shaky ground.
SSocial security is a "pay-as-you-
oo" program with the money paid in


by current payers funding the bene-
ficiaries of the program. The pro-
gram has been in place for 70 years.
Currently there are about 47 mil-
lion people receiving benefits from
social security. Social security is not
just for retirement: 15 percent
receive survivor benefits and 15 per-
cent receive disability benefits with
the remaining 70 percent receiving
retirement benefits.
According to a government-
sponsored web site www.socialse-
curity.gov social security will
reach a negative cash flow in the
year 2018 and be completely
exhausted by 2042.
Two factors weigh heavy on the
money flow problems social secu-
rity is currently facing. There are 79
million baby boomers, with the first
crop slated to hit the retirement row
in 2008.
The second and crucial factor is
the declining number of workers per
beneficiary. In 1960 there were 5.1
workers per beneficiary, in 2004 it
drops to 3.3 to 1 and it is expected to
be 2.1 to 1 by 2031.
Boyd said his plan would short
circuit the direction the current
social security program is headed.


Here are home highlights of
Kolbe-Boyd:
*Preserve the promised benefits of
near and current retirees (55 and
older)
*Does not privatize Social Security,
but allows every American the
opportunity to control their own
retirement through creation of per-
sonal accounts, administered by the
federal government.
*Stengthens the safety net for low
income workers through minimum
benefit provisions.
*Puts social security on a path of
permanent solvency.
*Allows younger generations to
contribute three percent of the first
$10,000 of earnings and two percent
of the remainder to personal
accounts. Those accounts will be
publicly administrated by the indi-
vidual Security Fund Board (ISFB).
*Voluntary after tax contributions
of up to $5,000 a year.
Boyd said that the Kolbe-Boyd
bill personal account is modeled
after the Thrift Savings Plan (TSP)
that most federal employees are cur-
rently enrolled in, which Boyd feels
has been successful.' Currently there
are 3.4 million participants with

ideas about
social security

city hall last
week.

$152 billion in
assets.
One additional benefit especially
geared to low-income workers pro-
vides a "match" for those who vol-
untarily contribute to their account.
The bill allows that any qualified
worker who makes a contribution of
$1 into their personal account will
receive a government match of
$150. The government would match
50 percent for each additional dollar
up to $600 annually.
One way Boyd intends to fund
the changes is raising the social
security cap from $89,900 to


$142,000 over the next five years.
SAccording to Boyd the current
rate of change in the cap is about
$2,000 a year.
Under the present system you
pay social security taxes up to the
cap of $89,900 and nothing on
income above that amount. The pur-
pose behind the accelerated change
is to generate money to fund the pro-
gram.
In addition Boyd said the bill
allows for larger benefit reductions
for higher income workers. Minor
changes in the Consumer Price
Index (CPI), which generates money


into the Social Security Trust Fund
would help raise funds for the
Kolbe-Boyd plan.
Boyd said that the most expen-
sive option of all is to deny the long
term problems with social security.
He said the Kolbe-Boyd bill is
the least expensive bill to solve the
social security dilemma, adding that
the Congressional Budget Office
scored the plan as being solvent for
the next 100 years.
If you would like more informa-
tion about the bill or social security
you can contact Boyd at

City of Gretna back on track Pow wow in Chattahoochee


by BYRON SPIRES
Times Staff Writer

Gretna city commissioners heard
some good news Tuesday night.
Interim city manager Diane For-
IJnman informed the commission
%hat the city was "back on track"
Pfter several months of financial
voes.
0 The city had found itself in a
financial crunch after failing to get
heir audits to the state on time. The
jtate withheld the city's tax revenue
haring money until the audits were
caught up.
r Formman said that money was
released last month and she was able
o' catch many of the city's delin-
Puent accounts up-to-date.
In addition, Formman said that
money had been release' 'rI
Florida Depai tmert of Environmen-:
4al Protection which was intended to
help fund the inter-connect between
the City of Quincy's new water
fields in Mt. Pleasant and Gretna.
Formman said that she was able
to pay part of the bill still owed to
Quincy for the inter-connect, and
That additional money is coming
from DEP for the project in the near


future.
DEP had put a stop to any addi-
tional water hook-ups for Gretna
several years ago after one of their
wells failed. The inter-connect was
needed to assure DEP that Gretna
had a plausible water source with an
adequate supply of water.
"The city is looking great right
now," Formman said.
The city financial consultant Bill
Bogan and Formman were praised
by the commission for having the
audits completed and getting the
city's money flowing again. Form-
man said the 2003 and 2004 audits,
which are also delinquent, are cur-
rently being worked on and should
be completed in the next few
months.
Formman said the commission will


need to start working on the 2005-
,,-2006 budget: Plans 'were.-made: by",
the commission to start workshops
in May.
In other business:
Commissioners were informed
by city attorney Harold Knowles
that the contract with Mediacom, the
city's cable provider, was up for
renewal.
One commissioner, David Sailor,


had problems with the current cable
provider: he had shown his bll to
someone from Valdosta and found
their bill was half as much as his.
Commissioner Helen Franks also
had problems with the issue and
asked that the city provide a survey
for local citizens before a decision
about the contract be decided.
One audience member also had
problems and said his bill had nearly
doubled in the six years he has lived
in Gretna.
Formman said she-would provide
surveys for residents when they paid
their water and sewage bills at the
city hall.
Cell phone charges were an issue
for commissioner Nadine Smith.
Smith recalled that in a meeting
last year it was decided that city util-
itics director Charles Haycs would
,pay';r al~amditionaly'charges';, on his
cell phone over $100. According to
Smith, Hayes has not done that.
The commission decided that
Hayes would be sent a letter con-
cerning the bill directing him to pay
the additional cost. Smith felt that if
he did not pay the overage, the cost
should be deducted from his pay-
check.

PINIONS


The death of the Pope brought
back many memories of my trip to
Rome. I pulled out my scrapbook
and dusted it off the other day. It all
came flooding back to me. It
seemed like only yesterday that I
walked through Vatican, City. There
were thousands of tourists there, it
was the week leading up to Easter


and people from all over the world
had made the pilgrimage. They
wanted to hear and see Pope John
Paul II deliver Easter Mass.
Of course, being of the African
Methodist Episcopal faith, I real-
ized the significance of being in
Rome at Easter time. I spent Good
Friday taking in the sights and


sounds and the whole religious
experience, from the Sistine Chapel
to the gift shop. The magnitude of
the day became clear to me before
we neared the city. We hit standstill
traffic nearly 30 miles out of the
city. Everyone was going to the
Vatican for Easter, our driver told
us. It was midday and we were told
that by nightfall the traffic would
be backed up more than 50 miles.
Vatican City is an independent
state within the city of Rome. They
have their own police force, the
Swiss Guard, and the Pope, who is
the Bishop of Rome and the
Supreme Pontiff, is the head of this


state. But I was intrigued by the
people. The people who came in
reverence, the people who came to
pray. The looks on their faces was
something to behold. Thousands of
people who had nothing on their
minds except prayer.
In St. Peter's Square people
were polite and friendly. You can
imagine thousands of people
crowded in a relatively small area,
made even smaller by all of the
construction and decorating getting
ready for Easter services, but there
was a strange calmness in the
Square.
Entering the Basilica, I immedi-


ately realized that I had entered the
largest and most grandiose sacred
building. It was vast in scale and
awe-inspiring in effect. It was filled
with sacred relics and the most
magnificent works of art of the
Renaissance and Baroque periods.
The first thing you see before
entering is a bronze statue of St.
Peter. Looking at the statue, which
was made in the 13th century, made
me all the more sad for our dispos-
able society. Inside, I stood before
La Pieta of Michaelangleo as long
as I could. I had seen it in pictures,
but standing there just a few feet
away made me shiver.


And so this week as John Paul II
Is laid to rest, pause to think about
the man who, more than most, did
what he could to bring the world
together, regardless of religious
affiliation. The man who, in
midlife,.recognized that the young
people in today's world need more.
He realized that they needed a spir-
itual foundation and made very
effort to bring them back to the
church. And by the thousands, they
came.
So, as I say goodbye to John
Paul II, he touched my life in a spe-
cial way without knowing it. I sus-
pect he did the same for millions.


One of my friends, our retired
sheriff W. A. Woodham is facing
some trying times.
He is currently at Saint Luke's
Hospital in Jacksonville.
I've known W.A. for so long it
seems like I've known him all of
my life.
I can actually remember him as
a county juvenile counselor, the
job he held before becoming sher-
iff.
Before you jump to any unnec-
essary conclusions let me say that
it was not as one of his clients.
W.A.'s boss was juvenile judge
Guy A. Race. Race was one of my
high school teachers and it was
with Race I first remember meet-
ing W.A.
I have vivid memories of the


Response to comments

Letter to the Editor:

In the March 24, 2005 edition of
the Gadsden County Times, you
made remarks concerning the tele-
vised meetings of the Board of
(Gadsden) County Commissioners
and of the Quincy City Commis-
sion. Essentially your remarks were
that the general public was afforded
the opportunity to observe their
local, elected officials at work dur-
ing a business meeting.
One week later in the March 31st
edition of the Times, you were crit-
ical of Quincy's Mayor, as he ques-
tioned some aspects of the proposed
Quincyfest- Presents Barbecue and
Blues'. You related the Mayor's
inquiry back to the time when you
were a little girl and how you
responded when things did not go
your way. It is fascinating that you
can recall memories of half a cen-
tury ago but you cannot recall and
did not accurately report what the
Mayor voted on and said one week
prior. Thank goodness for open tel-
evised meetings, where minutes are
kept and the entire meeting is main-
tained on audio and videotape.
If you had taken the time to
review the minutes, which are open
to the public, then you would not
have reported that the Mayor
"decided that he did not want Quin-
cyfest at all." In fact, the Mayor has
been a primary catalyst over the last
two years in calling for a citywide
fest. During the meeting which you
accused the Mayor of not wanting
Quincyfest at all, that measure was
never up for consideration.
The only motion made, sec-
onded, and passed regarding this
,event was to allow the Quincyfest
volunteer committee to proceed
with its initial plans. The Mayor
disagreed and voted "no" to the
motion. He, neither any of the City
Commissioners, did not vote or
decide to do away with the fest.
Further in your article, you reported
that the Mayor told a person from
Tallahassee, who was requesting
$5000 for a Tallahassee event, if he
(the Mayor) had not voted to give
$10,000 to help sponsor Quincyfest,
he would vote to give that person
(from Tallahassee) the $5000.
Again minutes are maintained of all
meetings.


events that lead up to W.A. being
appointed sheriff of Gadsden
County.
A riot broke out in Quincy in
October of 1970 and Sheriff
Robert Martin suffered a heart
attack that same night.
Sheriff Martin passed away and
W.A. was appointed by Governor
Rueben Askew as his replacement
in early 1971.
At the time he was the youngest
sheriff in the state and he looked
it.
You know it is funny some-
times how your life intertwines
with people over the years.
W.A. hired my cousin Mike
Wright as a dispatcher not long
after he became sheriff. Mike and
I were going to Tallahassee Junior


The official minutes reflect two
glaring points on this issue: First,
the person whom the Mayor
responded, was born and raised in
Quincy and was seeking funds to
present a patriotic gospel fest at the
Quincy Music Theater in obser-
vance of Independence day. She
did not ask for $5000. She
requested that each Commissioner
donate funds from his/her discre-
tionary funds to assist her in pre-
senting this program for the citizens
of Quincy.'
Secondly, the person from Talla-
hassee, who requested the $5000,
was afforded the opportunity to
make her request. Upon her request
being made, the Mayor asked the
body of the Commission if any
action was to be taken on her
,request. There being no response,
the Mayor advised the requestor
that the Commission would not be
granting her request. End of
story!!! Nowhere during the brief
encounter with the Tallahassee
requestor did the Mayor or any
other Commissioner reply, imply, or
insinuate that the funds would be
better off donated to a Tallahassee
function.
The Mayor does not know the
rationale for your fabrications or
printing erroneous information.
Neither does he care to know: But,
it is expected that along with this
letter you will print a "correction"
in the April 7th edition of the Times
and all will be forgiven and
resolved.

Derrick D. Elias, Mayor

Editor's note

The minutes reflect hat your com-
ment to the woman who asked for
funds partiotic event were: "IfI had
my way, the $10,000 that (inaudi-
ble) to Quincyfest, I would have
voted to give that over to this patri-
otic event that you're trying to put
on." Also, you did not rerspomd to
the woman who asked fbr funds ffor
Tallahassee event.

Abusing service

Dear Editor,

"The Good, The Bad and The
Ugly" best describes the theme of
this letter. The "Not So Jolly Green


College at the time (1971) and I
would visit Mike occasionally at
the old county jail where the dis-
patchers were housed at the time.
That is when I really got to
know W.A.
He was the sheriff and he only
looked a couple of years older
than Mike and me. Just so you'll
know there is about 8 years differ-
ence in our ages.
I guess I got caught up in the
new kid on the block syndrome.
This young guy is now the sheriff
and I got the idea I wanted to go
into law enforcement.
So I started taking criminology
classes at TJC and joined the sher-
iff's auxiliary.
I will not go into a lot of detail
about my stint in the auxiliary
other than to say that I still like
playing ping pong.
There was this one time, how-
ever, that I got put on a surveil-
lance detail.
I ended up in the emergency
room with a piece of barbed wire
in my knee and a visit from the
high sheriff.


Giants" that line our city streets and
sidewalks are the topic of this letter.
The service that the City of Quincy
provides -to dispose of our household
garbage is being abused. The origi-
nal intent was for these cans to be
rolled to the curb the evening before
pick-up and then rolled back the day
of pick-up. The households now
abiding by the original rule are few
and far between today. The present
situation has created not only -an
eyesore but a safety hazard as well.
Picture with me the following case
scenarios: an elderly driver, not
unlike myself, on a dark rainy night
trying to dodge these green monsters
in the street a dangerous scene
don't you think? And then imagine a
motorist driving to work facing a
blinding sunrise or sunset. And
finally a mother pushing her baby in
a stroller on the sidewalk on King
St. But because of an overturned
garbage can blocking her way, she
has to cross to the other side of this
busy 30 M.P.H. street. And now to
the really unpleasant point in this
letter. To those of you who have read
any of my previous letters, you
know I try to recognize the good
things people in this community are
doing or have done.
I receive no satisfaction in point-
ing out "the bad and the ugly," how-
ever its become necessary for me to
address the actions of some incon-
siderate neighbors on my block who
not only think they deserve a second
garbage can (used for yard trash) but
that it's alright to put it on my prop-
erty even after repeated complaints
from me. There have been times
when this second can of theirs is left
tipped over in my yard and trash and
sometimes garbage is spilled onto
my property. And to add insult to
injury, this. second can is being
placed in front of a tree on my prop-
erty and when picked up in the pre
dawn hours, the can being lifted
scrapes and peels the bark from the
tree. This is so pathetic considering
the fact that a beautiful wisteria vine
climbing in the tree is now blooming
providing I hope a beautiful viewing
pleasure to those inconsiderate
neighbors with the extra garbage
can. To avoid any chance of the
readers being misled, I feet I should
explain that the garbage on this
block is picked up in an alley that
runs between Sharon St. and North
St.


If I remember correctly it had
something to do with a cow lick-
ing me on the back of the neck as
I hid behind a pasture fence.
Needless to say even W.A.
couldn't save my law'enforcement
career.
I eventually opened Gadsden
Wholesale and W.A. became one
of my regular customers.
I won't tell you what he
bought, but it came twelve to a
box and you chew it.
There were always a few fel-
lows hanging around bull skating
(that by the way is a cleaned up
male term for gossiping). W.A.
once told me he learned more
about what was going on in Gads-
den County at my store that he did
at the sheriff's department.
W.A. and I had many conversa-
tions over the years in my store
about everything from the latest
caper to where the fish were bit-
ing.
There are a couple of things I
want to tell you about W.A. Wood-
ham you may not realize.
The most powerful politician in


So as riot to end on idn entirely
critical note, I'd like td"thank the
very courteous people in Quincy
who roll their cans back and forth,
and to the others who keep them off
the streets and sidewalks. And a
very special "Thank You!" to Harry
Cannon, the real "Sanitation Engi-
neer" who so skillfully and single-
handedly operates the mechanical
jaws that lift those "Green Mon-
sters" into the sanitation truck.
Harry is at work before sunrise
while most people are still catching
those last remaining minutes of
sleep before arising to another day
in this clean and beautifully main-
tained All-American city. In conclu-
sion let me know if this letter res-
onates with anyone and if so, given
a little encouragement I have more
suggestions where "an ounce of pre-
vention is worth a pound of cure."

Media missed boat

Dear Editor,

The Terrie Schaivo spectacle and
tragedy it has all become very clear
now at the end. Randall Terry is the
spokesman for the Schindlers, Ter-
rie's parents. Randall Terry has
inflamed events surrounding the
Schaivo situation from the begin-
ning. Randall Terry said abortion
doctors should be killed. Who is that
out front, talking to the cameras,
stirring up the protesters in front of
Terrie Schaivo's hospice? Randall
Terry. Terrie Schaivo's death watch
has been used as a platform for anti-
abortion politics, locally and nation-
ally. Media missed the boat again.

Time to clean up

Dear Editor

We have had a very mild winter
and a fairly wet spring. Already I
see the grass and weeds are growing
fast. The best way to avoid receiv-
ing a visit or a notice from a code
enforcement inspector is to keep the
grass cut, and eliminate all of the
items that collect around the yard,
especially those items that hold
water and become breeding spots for
mosquitoes like old containers and
tires. Vehicles that no longer run is


any county is the sheriff.
A sheriff wields a lot of author-
ity. Over the years I'm sure that
there are not many individuals and
families in this county both black
and white that do not appreciate
something W.A. did for them.
W.A. is well respected
statewide and has held state
offices with the Sheriff's Associa-
tion. He will not blow his own
horn, but his advice was often
sought when it came to state
issues, especially those involving
law enforcement.
I guess the only time I ever saw
him humbled was at his retirement
party.
He was lauded by everyone
from former Governor Rueben
Askew to his friend James Harold
Thompson. He didn't think he
deserved all of the attention, but
he did.
I have found him to be fair in
his dealings and do not know of
many that would disagree with me
on that point.
He does have his distractors as
we know, but that is part of the job


another item that is common but not
allowed. A non-operating vehicle
may only remain on property for 10
days unless it is in a garage. They
are not allowed on the street or in
the right-of-way at all.
The City of Quincy's code
enforcement inspectors will be con-
ducting sweeps this year in addition
to answering complaints. In a
sweep of an area the code inspectors
will be looking at each property, and
will leave a courtesy notice outlin-
ing every violation that is observed
and giving a reinspection date. Cor-
recting any noted problems by the
reinspection date will prevent any
other action by the inspector, and is
very much appreciated. If a prob-
lem is not corrected the code inspec-
tor will take other action that could


of being a sheriff especially after
all of the years that he served: you:
can't please everyone.
W.A. retired in November after
giving this community 33 years of
his life.
Few people realize he put that
life on the line several times dur-
ing his tenure as sheriff. He did it
unselfishly and without hesitation.
That was part of his job, he told
me in an interview shortly before
he retired.
As I said at the beginning of
this column W.A. is facing some
trying times as he battles his ill-
ness.
I know he would appreciate
your prayers and I for one believe ,
that God answers prayers.
He can receive cards I was told
by a nurse at his hospital.
If you would like to send him a,
card of encouragement, please
address it to W.A. Woodham, C/O ,

Road Jacksonville, Florida 32216.
May God be with you, W.A.
Woodham, and may we see you ,
back in Quincy soon.

avoid problems is to keep your prop-
erty clean. It makes the community
look better, helps people feel better,
and keeps property value up.
This spring let's include the yard
in our spring cleaning, we will all be
grateful for it. If you have any ques-
tions please give me a call. Thank
you.

State finds good, bad in school audit


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

Last week the Attorney General released its audit find-
ing for the year' ending June 30, 2004. The news, in
some areas, was not good and not surprising. The report
noted 20 areas where the district needs to shape up.
While the school district has established and imple-
mented procedures that. generally provide for internal
control of district operations, and has generally com-
plied with provisions of law, administrative rules, regu-
lations, contracts, and grants, the auditors noted prob-
lems with internal control and compliance findings.

Food Service
One area of critical concern was the school food serv-
ice operations. "Enhanced management controls were
needed in the District's school food service programs
to:
(1) determine total food cost per meal to provide
assurance that use of food items is reasonable;
- (2) ensure time records are maintained for individuals
providing contractual services and that purchase orders
to other contract documents specify all agreed upon
terms;
(3) ensure that prices charged for functions outside the
routine meal preparation service are sufficient up cover
the cost for such activities;


(4) ensure the accuracy of collections received for food
services provided by the District's Charter School. In
addition, the district should discontinue the practice of
selling food to employees for use outside the approved
food service program."
Last year the food services program fell short by sev-
eral hundred thousand dollars and the money to pay for
the shortfall came from the general fund.
"We recommend again that the district enhance con-
trols over food service warehouse inventories to main-
tain monthly physical inventory count sheets and ade-
quate perpetual inventory records, including procedures
to investigate and resolve differences between physical
counts and quantities recorded in the perpetual
records," the report stated.

Invest idle funds
The district experienced a decline in its financial con-
dition over the past three fiscal years. As a result, the
district has fewer resources available for emergencies
and unforeseen situations than other school districts of
comparable size.
The district was also admonished to invest idle funds.
"Efforts should be made," the report stated, "to maxi-
mize interest earnings on temporary idle funds."
Improvements were needed to strengthen internal con-
trol over capital assets to provide for timely posting of
detailed subsidiary records, to ensure complete physical


inventory if taken annually and all discrepancies traced
and reconciled to the property records, and to properly
mark all property owned by the district.
The district spent special Public Education Capital
Outlay (PECO) funds, totaling $2, 681,240.40 for items
that are not authorized expenditures for the source
which is restricted. The money, auditors say, should be
returned to the PECO fund.
Also, the District paid $51,532.75 to five individuals
the district classified as independent contractors, even
though the individuals performed duties similar to those
performed by individuals classified as employees. The
recommendation is that proper documentation be kept
and the basis upon which these individuals were classi-
fied as independent contractors.

Other findings
Other findings included problems in the following
areas:
*Local Capital Outlay Expenditures
*State Contract Purchases-Computer Hardware
*School Advisory Council Memberships
*School Internal Funds
*Information Technology-Security Controls
*Information Technology-Disaster Recovery
*Strategic Planning
*Charter School Monitoring
*Contracts-Fingerprinting Services


*Relocatable Building Inspections
Under a summary of the federal grants, there too were
problems.
For instance, the district purchased 391 calendars with
Head Start funds, totaling $7, 115.90 which were not
used for the Head Start program. And although, suffi-
cient documentation was ultimately provided to support
that the District met the required match for the Head
Start program, the preparation and maintenance of
accurate accounts relating to in-kind contributions and
matching costs would assist the District in monitoring
its compliance with the matching requirements.
Improvements are needed in the district's procedures
to ensure that the vendors are not suspended or debarred
from receiving federal funds. Enhancements is also
needed in procedures to provide semi-annual certifica-
tions for employees who work solely on a single federal
program or a single cost objective, the report stated.
It was also found that a full time employee was paid
$4,700 as a vendor. "There was no purchase order or
agreement to invoice supporting the hourly rate charged
and there was no receipt or other documentation to sup-
port the out-of-pocket costs. Also, the voucher package
did not evidence (show) that the products or services
were received by the district."
The full report is on file at the District office and is a
matter of public record.


Ella Barber seeks Midway seat


Midway Citizens,

I, Ella Barber, am running for
Council Seat #2 in Midway once
more, and I am asking for your con-.
tinued support. Remember: you
know what you have now, but you
don't know what you will get. Talk
comes cheap. Really living up to the
promises is another thing.

I have supported persons in the
past who led me to believe that they
were for peoples' rights as I was and
still am, but in a short time they
turned the other way. Midway Citi-
zens are always left out. No serv-
ices, roads resurfaced only by Gads-
den County, during Thanksgiving
and Christmas a Family Foundation
feeds all of Midway's citizens, City
Av d C ount\.. ., ,," : ;.'" ;'>

:For7 years have served you all,
friorn the highest to the lowest who
request or express a need or desire.
jYou call me any time, day or night,
you know you get an answer and aid
in any problem you face. You get
me when you get no one else.

It's not about glory, fame, or for-
tune for me. You are my focus, you
are my concern. I cry with you, I
weep and mourn with you. I am one
of you. I hurt if you hurt. This elec-
tion is placed in God's hands. I will
accept anything that he allows,
because His word says, "All things
Work together for good for those


ot.


Ella Barber
-who love the Lord."


I am nothing, Do not solicit credit.
WMhat y6du people see in me that is
good,,is,,credited.to God and you
people. , .

My record:

1. The Franchise Fee was returned
to the people from Talquin Electric
due to my efforts.
2. After 5 years and a committee
failure in 2004 to have City police
protection, I was instrumental in
getting police protection through the
sheriffs' department now in force
with an officer on Midway grounds
day and night.
3. I am pushing hard for more cit-
izen involvement and notification
about what goes on in your City.
4. I am seriously pushing for more


affordable housing, and more
importantly, care and repairs for the
many mobile homes and sub-stan-
dard homes in Midway.
5. Presently, I am working with
Gadsden school officials to inprove
attendance and eliminate much of
the vandalism that occurs in the City
of Midway.
6..Working for the establishment
of the police and fire departments in
the near future.
7. Since Midway is displaying so
much prosperity, emergency funds
should be available for citizens who
need help to improve their quality of
life.

*Remember this: If elected, I will
work for you on the Council. If you
do not elect me. I will be out fliere
working mi.ilh yo;u. ,BeforeI was a
council member, I was fighting for
you along with the surrounding
communities and we won! You
have so much industry coming into
Midway and the Midway area Cit-
izens are not protected nor provided

services are my priorities. Vote and
you may win. Don't vote, and you
definitely will lose.

DRINKING WATER STANDARDS

IN GADSDEN COUNTY

Are you concerned with the drinking water in Gadsden County? As well
you should be. Everyone wants to know that their water supply is safe.
Groundwater is used for approximately 90% of Florida's drinking water
supplies. Currently, all drinking water supplies in Gadsden County are
from groundwater, as opposed to surface water.

In Florida, two regulatory programs help to balance the risks from unsafe
and unhealthy drinking water the Florida Safe Water Drinking Water Act
(SDWA) and the Department of Health's (DOH) Chapter 64E-8. The
SDWA regulates medium to large public water systems. Chapter 64E-8
regulates limited use public water systems and private water systems.
The Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) has primary responsi-
bility for the SDWA in Florida and the DOH administers Chapter 64E-8.

The DEP has the primary role of regulating public water systems in
Florida. All public water systems are required to periodically test the water
served to'the public for contamination. These tests are very extensive,
testing for over 90 different contaminants. All community water systems
are also tested for secondary standards, such as taste, color, and odor,
even though these effects are not considered to present a risk to human
health. The best source of specific information about your drinking water
is your water supplier. Water suppliers are required to send their cus-
tomers an annual water quality report. These reports will tell you what
contaminants have been found in your drinking water and at what level.

20% of Florida citizens (over 2.7 million) obtain drinking water from private
wells. Florida geology, including limestone and sandy soils, makes
groundwater especially susceptible to chemical pollutants and bacteriolog-
ical contamination. Gadsden County is fortunate to have a geology that
mostly consists of loams and clay soils. These soils, being much denser
than sands, don't allow contamination to travel very far. The best protec-
tion is to be aware of and eliminate direct sources of contamination.
Required setback distances have been established to reduce potential for
contamination to potable water wells. But potable water system owners
should also test their drinking water at least annually and any time there is
a noticeable change in water quality. If you have your own well, you are
responsible for making sure that your water is safe to drink.

The primary risk to small water systems is contamination from nitrate,
lead, and bacteria. Other potential sources of contamination are dumps or
landfills and petroleum or hazardous chemical or waste facilities. These
areas are identified by the DEP. The DEP is responsible for mandating
cleanup actions and advising residents in contaminated areas when addi-
tional testing of their water is needed and if other precautions are required.

At the local level, the Gadsden County Health Department's
Environmental Health Office samples all private wells within a 1/4 mile and
all public wells within a 1/2 mile radius of known contaminated facilities on
an annual basis, free of charge. In 2002, citizens voiced concern that
landfills may have been a source of contamination to our groundwater.
This prompted the health department to sample wells around all landfills
through the DOH's Drinking Water Toxics Program. As of today, all sam-
pling results have come back negative for contaminants violating maxi-
mum contaminate levels. These results indicate the water is safe and
healthy to drink. We also provide bacteriological, lead, and nitrate testing
of private wells for a small fee.

If you have any questions or are interested in getting your private wells
sampled please call Sandra Sheridan or Melissa Brock with the Gadsden
County Health Department's Environmental Health Office at 850-875-
7223.

It's Time for a Change
There are many changes taking place today. Time changed, wind and weath-
er change, seasons change, customers change and style and pattern change
Yet this is time for a change. I change not, I am the Lord and I chance not, I
am the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow. We realize Satan is still as he '
told Job to go to and fro, up and down in the earth seeking whom rhe can
. devour. But we must keep our focus on Jesus, He is still in control. St. John
12:32 KJV states and if I be lifted up from the earth I will draw all men unto me. What has hap-
pened? The drawing power has not changed. So something must be short pertaining to the lift-
ing up. It's time for a change. Lord revive us again, Satan is doing his job 100 percent. But in
2nd Chronicles 7:14 it still reads that if my people which are called by my name will humble
themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from
Heaven and forgive their sins. Who is to blame? It's not me, it's not you, it's not the young, it's
not the old, it's Satan. And the word.of God, St. Matthew 24:6-9 states you are gbing to hear the
,ni-:i.- f. bith r araj, bult 'u rol by qcubled iah ihi;r.hi uii is Iy. Ll[ Ip rt.fur it does not mean
that the end nas come. One country wll' right nolher country, one kingdom will attack another
and-kintdoms famish, and earthqdakes"ererywhere. All these things are like the first pains of
childbirth, but there is yet to be bom. We need to know ifs time for a back to God individual
revivals. Pray for each other. We need to plead to God for our youth, they need Jesus. Seems
like they have everything else. Does that apply to us all? We are the ones to go into the hedges
- and highways. Seek and find the sinners and bring them to Jesus. The are like the Pharaoh
when he said to Moses, "Who is the Lord? I don't know the Lord." They are crying out for help.
The don't know the answer is Jesus. We say we do. Ifs time for a change.
Humbly submitted, Florence Mims Bradwell




FUNERAL FACTS
|, "BURIAL VAULTS"

A casket is placed in either a vault or grave liner before burial. A
cemetery has the authority to require a vault or grave liner. The
definition of a grave liner is a burial receptacle placed in the
ground in a cemetery designed to support the weight of the earth
and standard cemetery maintenance equipment and to prevent the
grave from collapsing. The definition of a vault is a lined and
sealed burial receptacle which performs all the functions of a
grave liner, and in addition is designed and constructed using one
or more lining and sealing materials to increase the overall tensile
strength of the finished unit and to reduce the risk of the
intrusion of exterior elements.

by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
There will not be any special
services held at St. Thomas the

enter," said Father Juan Pedro Her-

The parishioners are sad that
their popular and beloved Pope has
died, but they are happy that he is
hot longer suffering. "He saw his
suffering as a gift from God," he
said, adding, "he gave us something
to think about. The Lord received

Father Hemandez-Alonso said
many people have questions about
Pope John Paul II and why he is
dressed in red. He is using the
occasion to teach valuable lessons
about the church. "The red is from
the Apostle. You must remember
that the Apostles are all bishops,
that is why they are all in red. We
believe our bishops and priests
have been blessed," he said.
John Paul UI will be remem-
bered, he said, for his love of chil-
dren and the handicapped. "He con-
nected with the youth. That was
one of his missions." He is credited
with bringing the youth back to the
church is large numbers. Many
young Catholics have known no


other Pope as he was elected 26
years ago.
Soon, however, a new Pope.will
be elected and Father Hernandez-
Alonso hopes this leader will con-
tinue.John Paul II's mission.
While there are no local serv-
ices, two have been planned by the
Diocese of Pensacola-Tallahassee
in memory of Pope John Paul II. At
7 p.m. today, a prayer service will
be held at Co-Cathedral of St.
Thomas More, 900 West Tennessee
St. in Tallahassee. The service will
be led by Monsignor Michael Tug-
well. A Memorial Mass will be held
Friday at 7 p.m. in the same loca-
tion with Bishop John H. Ricard as
the celebrant.

Local Catholics watched, like
many throughout the United States,
as the pontiff's body was taken to
its final resting place at the Vatican.
In the next few days millions will
watch the services and the activities
from Rome on television.
Father Hernandez-Alonso
recalled the two times he was in the
presence of the Pope. "I received
communion from him in Spain.
There were 200 of us to receive
communion and only two were
selected. I was one of the two. The
other time was in the seminary.
When he was leaving I touched
him. Someone swatted my hand
away, but I touched him," he said,

"Boom Cars" raise noise levels


Local residents "feel the sound" of loud speakers in their neighborhoods


by BYRON SPIRES
Times Staff Writer

How many times have you
stopped at a red light in town and
had the stereo in the car next to you
rattle your windows with its loud,
high powered speakers?
Have you ever been sound asleep
late at night and have a car pass near
your home with the music so loud it
startles you awake?
Have you ever been on a walk
and seen a trunk lid vibrate from a
big bass speaker as it passed you?
If you can say yes to any of these
questions you are acutely aware of
the rising menace of sound pollution
that has taken the country by storm.
It is the "attack of the Boom
Cars" and it has arrived in Gadsden
County.
Turning the car stereo up is not a
new phenomenon, it has been
around a long time. It has just been
elevated to the next level.
There is a history to the need to
raise the sound waves. It started
with the baby boomers trying to get
mom and dad's one-speaker family
car radio to be just a little louder.
Today's generation with the
help of high-tech equipment can
turn an average everyday car into a
rolling "Boom'Box."
The loud menacing noises have
made a stir all across the nation.
New York City, Chicago, Illinois
and Berkley, California have all
passed tough anti-noise laws with
equally tough penalties to curb the
noise pollution.
The city of Papillion, Nebraska

'I A car and a bicycle were
ltvolved in a collision on Brickyard

-~iport from the Florida Highway
iPitrol, Roderick Bunion, 20, was

Xivious Davis, 14, was riding his

vehicles that can be heard from 50
feet away are subject to earning a
three-month stint in jail.
The US Census states that noise

Where the noise -
comes from:
Trunks of "Boom
Cars" like this
one have are
full of speakers .-
and technical
equipment :


is the number one complaint Ameri-
cans have about their neighbor-
hoods.
The industry that promotes the
loud equipment uses catchy names
for their products like, "Disturb the
Peace and Either We Love Bass or
Hate Your Neighbors."
How bad is it?
One vehicle in a competition for
"Car Boomers" produced two and a
half times the noise level of a 747 jet
on take-off, that is enough sound to
kill a person had they been inside
the vehicle.
To put sound in perspective: a
firecracker produces about 155
dBA, (dBA is the measurement used
for sound) an average rock concert
about 120 dBA.
Extended levels of 85 dBA
according to OSHA can produce
hearing loss. A video arcade ranges
between 90-110 dBA.
"Boom Cars" in general are well
above 85 dBA. The national average


starts at around 140 dBA and moves
upward depending on speaker
wattage and output.
There may be some help.
According to Major Glynn Beach
.J;ft..r^... ^ 53*^ - s- n- --


of the Quincy Police Department
there are laws that prohibit loud
noises. The City of Quincy has an
ordinance that speaks to the issue. It
says: "It shall be unlawful for any
person to disturb, maliciously or
willfully, the quiet of any street or
neighborhood or of any family of
persons, by making loud or unusual
noises; blowing horns or other
instruments; beating drums, pans or
other things of like nature; loud or
boisterous laughing or talking,
singing or screaming or using any
device or means whatever so as to
disturb the peace or be guilty of any
disorderly conduct whatsoever."
Beach said that the state also has
a statute that is more specific to
sound-making devices.
The states law says that it is
unlawful for any person operating or
occupying a motor vehicle on a
street or highway to operate or
amplify the sound produced by a
radio, tape player or other mechani-

ment from within the motor vehicle
so that sound is plainly audible at a
distance of 100 feet or more from
the motor vehicle. The state also
limits sound around churches,
schools, or hospitals.
The QPD, Beach said, takes the
sound issue on a case by case basis.
If it is loud noises from a home
Beach said the officer usually asks
the resident to turn down the offend-
ing noise. However, he said that a
second trip to the residence may
result in a citation.
Moving vehicles create a differ-
ent problem, Beach said. "If an offi-
cer hears a vehicle with loud speak-
ers he can stop the driver and issue a
citation," Beach said. That fine is
$68.50.


There is another way to cut down
Son the amount of noise pollution
Beach said. Call your local law
enforcement office and complain


One vehicle in a compe-
tition for "Car
Boomers" produced two
and a half times the
noise level of a 747jet
on take-off, that is
enough sound to kill a
person had they been
inside the vehicle.


when you hear overly loud noises.
Beach said that the QPD would
be receiving some new equipment in
the near future that may help with
some of the noise pollution. "We
hope to have a noise level detector,
and an instrument that will deter-
mine the tinting on windows,"
Beach said.
The tinting on windows has
become another issue that the QPD
will be checking once the depart-
ment has the new instruments,
according to Beach. Florida has reg-
ulations requiring that you be able to
see inside a vehicle that has tinted
windows.
The new measuring devices,
Beach said, would take the guess-
work out of determining the noise
levels or tinting visibility.

Quincy: Time to clean up your junk!


City begins writing

tickets for abandoned

cars, junk in yards

by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

Do you keep an old car in the back yard that you keep
telling yourself you're going to fix? Have you allowed
the grass on that vacant lot you own to grown several
feet high? Have you somehow accumulated junk, trash
and debris in the yard? Is your yard just so bad it makes
the neighbors sick?
Look out, be fair warned. The City of Quincy is not
tolerating it anymore. Beginning this week, code
enforcement representatives are coming to a street
where you live. They will be hanging a nice little white
notice on your front door outlining the violation and
giving you a few days to get it right. Don't ignore it
either, because Kirk Tanis, Code Enforcement Supervi-
sor said they'll be back in few days to make sure you
have complied. If nothing happens within ten days, look
for a formal notice.
"They will be placed in our system and given a spe-
cific time limit. If there is still no response the home-
owner can be fined between $40 and $250 per day,
depending on the extent," Tanis said. The aim is not to
fine anyone, but to make homeowners clean up their
property. The next stop will be placing a lien on the
homeowner's property. If the violators are renters, the
property owner will be fined. "People say we want to
take their property. We don't. The city does not make a
good property owner, because it pays no taxes. If we get
it, we have to try to keep it up or sell it," Tanis said.
"We've had a mild winter and a fairly wet spring.
Already I see the grass and weeds are growing fast. The
best way to avoid receiving a visit or a notice from the
code enforcement inspector is to keep the grass cut, and
eliminate all of the items that collect (water) around the
yard and become breeding spots for mosquitos, like old
containers and tires. Vehicles that no longer run are
another item that is common but not allowed. A non-
operating vehicle may only remain on the property for
10 days unless it is in a garage. They are not allowed on
the street or in the right-of-way," Tanis said.
He said inspectors will park and walk the neighbor-
hood, visually inspecting yards for violations. "We have
gotten complaints from citizens, especially about the old
cars in yards. And the commissioners have said they
want something done. We're going to do it," he said.
Tanis said inspectors have heard every excuse in the


makes the community look better, helps people feel bet-
ter, and the property values go up." he said.
Tanis said the city has a program that will help home-
owners defray the cost. "It will pay 50 percent or up to
$250 to haul off cars, large items, and abate other nui-
sance violations. "I'm also looking at a program they


have in Tampa called 'Paint Your Heart Out'. They have
paint donated and volunteers spend a weekend paint-
ing."
Tanis said he would like nothing better than for the
City of Quincy to be so clean that the Code Enforcement
Department would be out of business.

book when it comes to people explaining why they keep
junk cars in the yard. He said a vehicle is considered
abandoned, junked or non-operating if:
*It does not have a license tag for the current year.
*Any part, equipment or piece of equipment neces-
sary for operating is and remains removed for a period
of at least three days.
*It is on the property of another without permission
of the owner of the property.
*It is on property contrary to or in violation of any
zoning law, regulation, or ordinance.
*It is found at any location in the city and the owner
or any person having custody or possession of the vehi-
cle cannot be contacted after a reasonable search.
*It is located in close proximity to a parcel or tract of
land with other junked or abandoned vehicles and is not
under the control or supervision of someone who can be
reached in a reasonable amount of time.
*For any reason the vehicle appears to be junked or
abandoned.
"It's time for us to stop being nice," he said. This has
become a health problem when snakes and mosquitos
are finding homes in abandoned cars. This spring we
want people to include yards in the cleanup. The best
way to avoid problems is to keep your property clean. It

man's Caucus, and Quincy resident Lane Stephens, executive director of Allied Sportsman's Associations
of Florida, with the Florida Osceola taken by Lane on April 2, 2005 in Glades County. The bird weighed
21.85 pounds, had a left spur length of 1.644 inches, a right spur length of 1.622 inches, and a beard
length of 10 3/4 inches. It has tentatively scored 76.04 on the National Wild Turkey Federation scoring
system, and should rank as the 28th best typical Osceola ever taken in Florida.

As a Realtor, I ve been asked many times why Eome real estate professionals refers to themselves as Realtors .
and others do not
The TERM REALTORR IDENTIFIES A MEMBER OF A LOCAL BOARD ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS STATE ASSOCIATION
OF REALTORS, AND THE NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS But because REALTORS are identified with real
estate brokerage, management, appraising, and other real estate specialists, many take it that all individuals
engaged in real estate practice are REALTORS
The TERMS REALTOR, REALTORS AND REALTOR-ASSOCIATE ARE REGISTERED MEMBERSHIP MARKS. and as indicated above the term
is not synonymous with broker or salesperson but is registered collective memnbership marl. which may be used only by members
of Boards Associations of REALTORS. and only while an individual remains member in good standing The duties and obligations
accepted by REALTORS or REALTORS ASSOCIATES ensure professional service and afford greater protection to their clients and
customers.
As a REALTOR 'm a member of the Cadsden Board of Realtors. Tallahassee Board of Realtor: Florida AssociatlOn Board of Realtors and

Turner said the horse was in a pen
that had low voltage electrical wires
around the top. Somehow the horse
got tangled up in the wires sur-
rounding a pen and fell, breaking
the wire with such pressure that it
was extended into the air where it
became hooked on a (high voltage)


power line.
"The homeowner's lights went out
and the electrical company was
called," Turner said.
The company was called Monday,
but due to other appointments
Wright was sent t6 the. site Tuesday.
"Wright had cut one wire and was
in the process of cutting the other
one to get the equipment inside the
property when he was electrocuted,"
Turner said.

FUN AT THE FINAL FOUR
It was my fourth time being in a
Final Four city while the tournament
was going on. The previous three
times I managed to get tickets to the
semi-final games. No such luck this
year.as they were at a premium in St.
Louis mainly because Illinois and
Louisville a pair of teams that were
close to the host site were playing.
But it was a fun time anyway.
Stayed right down town, and found
St. Louis to be clean, convenient,


.- F.


friendly. And the Arch was some-
thing else.
By the way I picked Illinois and
North Carolina to make the finals
and Illinois to win it all. The Tar
Heels and Sean May were too phys-
ical, and a great season of Illini bas-


ketball didn't end the way I picked it
to, and their fans wanted it to.
While in St. Louis the town was
getting excited about another base-
ball season and their beloved Cardi-
nals. I'll use that as a lead-in for my
major league baseball .predictions
for this year.
LAST YEAR
Believe it or not I picked Boston
to win the World Series last year. I
missed on their opponents though as
I felt Miami would make it to the
Series again.
As for this year I think it will be
this way...
AMERICAN LEAGUE
The three division winners will be
New York in the East, Minnesota in
die Central and the Angels in the
West. Oakland will be the Wild
Card winner and no. Boston won't
even make the play-offs.


Gadsden County Times April 7, 2005 3B


A few vacancies remain for women wanting to
attend the Becoming an Outdoors-Woman
(BOW) camp April 8 10 at Camp Wallwood on
Lake Talquin.
The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission ((FWC) hosts the program, where
women who are 18 and older, spend a weekend
learning outdoor skills associated with outdoor
recreation, fishing and hunting. Each participant
attends four 4-hour workshops in areas of their
interest.
One of the instructors is Tallahassee resident
Pam Houmere. Houmere is a physicist at the
National High Magnetic Field Laboratory at Tal-
lahassee. Before she began work there in 2000,
she taught at Tallahassee Community College.
Houmere developed and teaches a handgun
shooting curriculum for the BOW courses.
"At one time I was scared of firearms but fig-
ured I needed to conquer my fear head-on so I
joined a gun club. After learning to shoot and
then being asked to serve as a BOW instructor, it
gave me an opportunity to do something I
enjoy," she said.
Whether it's the handgun handing cuuise
Houmere teaches, or one ot the 21 other ses-
sions, the ladies attend their chosen topics in a

Outdoors-women wanted!


FWC looking for women to fill camping


The Yankees have added pitching
and will zip through their division.
Minnesota remains an over achiev-
ing team in a weak division, and the
Angels have great hitting and
defense. The A's have enough pitch-
ing to get them to the play-offs.
Look for two teams to really
improve in the American League
this year. Tampa Bay is going to be
a team to reckon with as the Devil
Rays are getting better players and
some of their young ones are matur-
ing. Detroit also has a better line-up
and I bet they won't lose over 100
games like they did last year.
NATIONAL LEAGUE
Florida will end Atlanta's record
13 East Division championship
streak, but the Braves will still use
Bobby Cox's smarts to make the
play-offs. St. Louis will \\in the
Central with what is almost an all-


star line-up and the Dodgers will be
West champions due to their pitch-
ing.
All three divisions in the National
League will be competitive as
Florida and Atlanta will have
Philadelphia and the Mets breathing
down their necks in the East all year,
Houston and Chicago will challenge
the Cardinals in the Central and the
Giants with or without Barry Bonds
will stay close to the Dodgers in the
West.
WINNERS
The Yankees will get through the
play-offs in the American League,
and will meet St. Louis in the World
Series. The 'Gateway to the West'
will be the home of the Major
Leagues Champions, giving St.
Louis a year to remember.

Powell


Continued from Page 1

ing deputies on a half-mile foot
chase before he was caught. He was
arrested without a struggle.
During questioning, Powell told
of his involvement in Wilson's
death, but the whereabouts of the
gun is not known. Wilson had been
seen at the Countyline store near his
home before he was shot.
Wilson was shot in the lower jaw
and neck area with a shotgun on
August 8, 2003. He clung to life
until shortly after noon the follow-
ing day. Neighbors reported hearing
a single gunshot around the time but
the area (Robertsville) is so rural
that no one thought anything of the
gunfire. Family members thought
Wilson had gone to bed in the
mobile home he shared with his
brother and sister-in-law. Wilson's
niece found the body when she was
walking around in the yard of the
family home.
Wilson, 51, was a 21-year Army
veteran who had moved back to
Gadsden County from Phoenix only
six months before he was killed.
"The word is getting out that we
are real about solving these cold
cases. People are calling," said
Young.




Commission


Continued from Page 1

worse and with another round of
heavy rains expected this week,
Sailor said she may be looking at
water up to her door.
Sailor said repeated calls to Evans
were unsuccessful until Tuesday
before the meeting. She said she
was under the impression that a
holding pond would be built, but
that Evans has put in a filtration
pond. The water, she said, comes
down the hill directly on to her
property.
"Why should my property have to
look bad so that his can look
good?" she asked commissioners.
Chairman Ed Dixon told Sailor that
Wednesday morning Bill McCord
of the Growth and Plannning
Department and other county staff
along with Evans will meet and-
attempt to resolve the matter.
Sheriff Morris Young was not at
the meeting but he sent the GCSO's
new finance director, Kathlene
Poindexter, Major James Morgan,
and Joseph Parramore to request
much needed funds to improve
conditions at the jail. If the money
were available, Young would need
more than $12 million to come into
complete compliance.
The money, they said, was needed
for both constructional and non-
constructional projects. "The jail
needs to expand. We have one offi-
cer per eight inmates," Poindexter.
said. And even more money is
needed to house female inmates.
Major Morgan said the cell block
was built to handle 12 females, as
of Tuesday there were 30 in the cell
block. "Some of them are sleeping
on the floor," he said.
Added to that, officers must man-
ually unlock cell doors because the
company who made the system is
out of business and they cannot
find the parts required so that doors
can operate electronically.
He suggested that the women be
moved, as a short term solution, to
the area now that is used to house
the county's records, or the old
state cooking school for inmates on
South Adams Street.
Chairman Ed Dixon explained
that the county is already at the
maximum millage rate.
"There is no more money. In
order to give you a dime, I would
have to take it from someone. I
have a hard time taking from peo-
ple who abide by the law to make
criminals comfortable. I'll build


them a tent city and put a big fence
around it. We have no more to give
to the sheriff. If he can cut back and
find some he can keep it," Dixon
said.
Parramore informed the commis-
sioners that the state has already
allocated just over $85,000 to the
county and asked that the chairman
sign off that the county would
accept the funds. Dixon agreed.


Jordan


Continued from Page 1

Jordan told the man he felt as if he
was going to "have a heat stroke"
and asked the man to take him to a
local store where he bought a bottle
of water and a cigar. He was caught
on the store's surveillance camera
about 1:29 p.m.
He paid for the items from what
appeared to be a large sum of


money. The man said Jordan paid
him five dollars for the ride, but he
knew something was wrong when
he returned to the Gretna area and
saw all of the police cars and ambu-
lances in the area where he picked
up Jordan.
He later took authorities to the area
where he dropped Jordan and with
help of other officers and the K-9
officers was able to track Jordan to
the home of a family member.
Jordan was picked up in the Sawdust
Community that night, but not


before he had changed clothes. He
was held that night on an outstand-
ing warrant.
The following day, Thurs-
day, deputies told him that the times
and places he'd given the day before
didn't match up. He was also shown
the surveillance tape from the store.
At first, Jordan told investigators
that "it wasn't him" in the video.
Minutes later he admitted that it was
him in the video. He then tried to
escape from the investigators by
running out of the office. He was


apprehended before he could get off
the second floor. When he calmed
down, according to the report, he
admitted that he killed Ross, but
said it was in self defense. But
deputies weren't buying the self
defense story because of the tele-
phone call made on March 28,
enlisting the support of another man
as lookout while he (Jordan) killed
Ross.
Ross was said to have a
large amount of money, his win-
nings from a card game earlier in the


day. No money was found on Ross
and the loose change was found on
the seat of the go-cart he was driv-
ing.
Ross' body was discovered
on March 29 in the early afternoon
in a wooded area between Thomas
and Canty Lanes in Gretna. He had
been shot in the neck and head,
according to a report.
