Commissioners



look at growth,



annexation


By BYRON SPIRES
Times Staff Writer

Growth and annexation were top-
ics of concern for Quincy city com-
missioners Tuesday night.
"I'm envious. What is it they have
(Midway)?" Mayor Derrick Elias
asked, referring to the tremendous
growth that has been occurring in
the City of Midway over the past
two years.
Midway has annexed in several
thousand acres of residential and
commercial property. In last
month's meeting alone Midway
approved a 400 lot subdivision on
part of the land recently annexed
into the city.
Elias wanted to set up a meeting
with Midway's city manager and
council to discuss ways Quincy
could take advantage of some of
their ideas. Commissioner Andy
Gay agreed with Elias, agreeing "we
need to look at annexation."
Commissioner Finley Cook
warned that growth could be deceiv-
ing. Cook does not want the city to
grow too quickly. He wants to be
sure that unwanted industries does
not slip through the cracks in the
rush to grow.
He also said that he understood

Climbing gas prices may soon have these drivers considering a new commuter service serving Gadsden County.



Commuter service offers relief


by BYRON SPIRES
Times Staff Writer

Where will the gas prices stop, is one topic on
the mind of many Gadsden County residents.
Currently in Gadsden County prices for 87
octane regular gas vary from $2.23 to $2.41 a gal-
lon, a nearly fifty cent rise since April of last year.
There is speculation that the cost could go as high
as $2.50 plus by the beginning of summer.
One resident recently complained that his
weekly fill-up went from an average of $20 to
nearly $30 in the last few months.
For workers, rising gas prices have cut into their
paychecks. The fluctuating prices have played
havoc with family budgets. Most Gadsden
County workers must commute to their employ-
ment, and while some only have a short ride,
nearly fifty percent of Gadsden County residents
commute to Tallahassee every day.
SAn average commute is 46 miles a day or 230


miles a week. AAA said that in 2004 it cost about
fifty cents a mile to operate an average vehicle.
That translates to about $115 a week or $5750 a
year if you sit at home on your two week vaca-
tion. That is after taxes by the way. Tack on the
rising fuel cost and it gets worse.
There is help.
Commuter Services of North Florida has a solu-
tion, it is simple and they will help you do it.
All you have to do is carpool or van-pool.
"Our program helps residents match up with
other residents to form car or van pools," Brendan
Murphy, marketing manager for CSONF said.
CSONF is run and operated out of the Market-
ing Institute at Florida State University and
funded by the Florida Department of Transporta-
tion.
According to Jeff Horton, CSONF's executive
director, the program works like this:
The first step is to complete a ride match request

that the city's building permits were
up and that some growth was actu-
ally happening in the city of Quincy.
Commissioner Sherry Taylor was
a little less patient about growth.
"We are missing the ball. I can't see
any negatives to generating rev-
enue," Taylor said. Taylor wanted to
see the city's management to take a
more aggressive stance concerning
growth. She said the problem is in
management. It is the council's
responsibility to set policy and pro-
cedure and staff to carry them out.
"Growth is going to come to Gads-
den County whether we want it or
not," Gay said. He added that he
wanted the city to bring in the Gads-
den County Chamber of Commerce
and its director, David Gardner, to
work on ways to help the city attract
industry and growth.
The commission made no formal
decision concerning the issue.
In other business:
1) The commissioners approved
the first steps for the building of a
new police station.
Architecture Design Group from
Orlando was hired to develop plans
for the new station.

Solis murder



trial under way


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

The second-degree murder trial of
Mauro "Tony" Solis begins today.
Solis, 31, is charged with the Oct.
22, 2003 beating death of Willie Joe
Stanford of Juniper. Solis' brothers
Armondo, 30, and Jose, 29, will
stand trial for the same murder in
May. The men had been charged
together, however, a judge granted
Mauro Solis' attorney's request to
be tried separately. All three have
been in the Gadsden County jail
since the murder. The three brothers


were also charged with aggravated
battery in the beating of Stanford's
friend, Jerry Shiver.
According to a report on file with
the Gadsden County Sheriff's
Office shortly after the charges were
filed, Solis met up with Yolanda
Nessmith, Les Massey, and Lisa
Ammons at a Greensboro store and
the four went to the Stanford's home
on Juniper Road. Nessmith, Massey,
and Ammons had allegedly attended
a party at Stanford's earlier in the
afternoon.
The report stated that Nessmith

Lamb Foundation to help Midway
Foundation to assist programs at city recreation center


By BYRON SPIRES
Times Staff Writer
Midway residents will soon be
getting some help with the
Eugene Lamb, Jr. Recreation
Center.
Council members heard a
presentation by Deloris Lamb,
president of the Eugene Lamb, Jr.
Foundation, in which she said the
foundation would be coordinating
fund raising efforts and commu-
nicating the center's development
plans.
Deloris Lamb is the wife of
Eugene Lamb Jr. and the mother
of the foundations founder Brian
Lamb. According to Lamb the
foundation began shortly after the
center was named after her hus-
band in 2003. Eugene Lamb, Jr.
has been both a commissioner
and mayor of Midway. He retired
several years ago as a coach in
the Leon County School system
and as an employee of the Talla-
hassee Recreation Department.
He is currently a county commis-
sioner serving the Midway and
Havana District 1 seat.
The foundation has recently
received 501 C 3 tax exempt sta-
tus.


A statement released by Brian
said that his father has been a pil-
lar of the Midway community.
"He has been an influential busi-
ness leader, devoted father, hus-
band, and Christian over the years
and put himself in position to be
remembered for a long time to
come," the statement said.
Deloris Lamb said that the
foundation would generate funds
to be used for such projects as
sports equipment, playground
equipment and landscaping for
the center.
She said that her family would
be contributing to the foundation
as well. She said plans included a
host of activities for children,
teenagers, adults and senior citi-
zens.
Comm. Lamb pledged to help
the city develop programs and
hopefully, he said, a director for
the center at some time in the
future.
Mayor Delores Madison added
that she would like to involve
both FSU and FAMU students in
programs at the center to bring
programs to the center.
The council approved by reso-
lution to support the Eugene
Lamb Jr. Foundation.

Gadsden County Times April 14, 2005 3


April is Sexual Assault Awareness month

In the United States women are sexually assaulted every 1.3 minutes

Statistics show that one in every four will be assaulted her lifetime


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

Christine Vidal has been talking
to teens this month. She is dis-
cussing a very serious matter with
them, a matter that could affect the
rest of their lives if they are not
careful. She is talking about sexual
assault and dating violence.
Whitney Sampson, victim's
advocate with the Gadsden
County Sheriff's Office, said that
this is the time of year when inci-
dents of date rape and sexual
assault go up. "Young people are
getting out more, it's prom season
and a number of things come
together that can lead to date
rape," she said.
Date rape or acquaintance rape
is a problem. Sampson said a
young Gadsden County woman
recently went to a local night spot
she had visited on several occa-
sions and knew .many of the
patrons. She felt safe in going
alone. The woman saw several
young men she was acquainted
with from seeing them at the club


in the past. She sat at a table with
several of ,them, but' before the
night was.over she had been raped
by two men. Sampson said they
slipped a ruffie, or "date rape"




they slipped a ruffle, or


"date rape" drug into


her drink. They took her


home and raped her



drug into her drink. They took her
home and raped her.
In the United States, it is esti-
mated that a woman is raped every
1.3 minutes. One of every four
woman will be a victim of sexual'
assault during her lifetime. Eight"
percent of the rapes are committed


by someone the victim knows and
fifty percent happen on dates.
And, one third of the rapes a com-
mitted by two or more men.
To make matters worse, Samp-
son said that less than 15 percent
of rapes are reported to law
enforcement due to fear of retalia-
tion, not being believed, police
interrogation, medical examina-
tions, low conviction rates, self
blame, and lack of information.
Vidal said her aim is to give teens
information to prevent date rape.
Not only is she talking to the
females about the problem, she is
also targeting males. "A lot of
them think that because a woman
wears a tight blouse or shorts, she
is being provocative. But, I ask
them if the saw a baby or an .80
year old woman is shorts, is that
provocative?"
According to Vidal, there are
some myths that need to be dis-
pelled.
*A rapist can be anyone. They
are brothers, fathers, boyfriends,
husbands, friends, and profession-
als.


Midway looks at police protection


*In 88 percent of the cases, the
rapist and the victim are of the
same race.
*Women do not provoke rape.
Only the rapist is responsible for
the rape. The victim is never to
blame.
*Rape is one of the most under
reported crimes.
*Men that rape are not out of
control. 80 percent of rapes are
planned. Rape is about power and
not passion.
Vidal explained that women
between the ages of 16 and 24 are
most likely to be at risk for rape.
"This is when young women begin
to date, this is a particularly vul-
nerable time."
There are many different kinds
of rape, but date rape is the most
confusing. Some men believe that
spending money on women cre-
ates a situation where dates owe
them sex. Some men also believe
that women play hard to get and


say "no" but really mean "yes."
Because some men perceive that
sex is their right, many women are
raped by men they are dating.
Vidal said it is important for
women to know that rape is an act
of violence and power.
Victims of date rape often expe-
rience different feelings. They
many be confused about whether
to tell police, school officials, and
even family and friends what hap-
pened. Some of the common feel-
ings include confusion, self-
blame, embarrassment, helpless-
ness, denial, shock, fear, disbelief,
and anger.
And while victims often want
to forget what happened, Vidal
said the long term effects can be
devastating. Some of the common
problems are:

For the first time in several
months annexation and land use
issues did not dominate the City of
Midway's council meeting.
For several council members the
need for police protection became
the issue of'last Thursday night's
meeting.
Currently the City of Midway
has a contract with the Gadsden
County Sheriff's Department to pro-
vide one full time officer, in the City
of Midway for 40 hours each week.
Deputies are also in the eastern zone
of the county in addition to the
deputy assigned to Midway. That
Midway officer's time is staggered
through out the week, according to
city manager Paul Piller.
l\Vlihs ,aid that it t 3Wh)leM1"
the officer to respond to the inci-
dents. His concerns he said were
that as Midway continued to grow
they needed to have a Midway
Police Department.
Council member Chuck Willis
brought up two recent incidents in
his district in which residents
received injuries. "A lot of people
are moving into my district."
Council member James Hinson
agreed with Willis about the need to
beef up the city's police protection.
"We are definitely going to have to
look in the future for answers."
Hinson added that the city may need
to look at an additional officer.
Piller said that it would cost
$43,000 to provide another officer.

He recommended to the council that
the new officer be considered in
next year's budget.
In addition, Piller said he had
been talking to TCC and the Pat
Thomas Law Enforcement Acad-
emy about reserve officers as an
alternative to full time officers.
Reserve officers are required to
work 16 hours a month to keep their
certifications current. He said it was
planned to give the sheriff's depart-
ment the two patrol cars owned by
the city for possible use by reserve
officers.
The council asked Piller to bring
to next month's meeting the costs
for reserve officers and other


options.
In other business the council
approved a franchise ordinance with
Waste Management. Piller said that
the ordinance was not a mandatory
garbage ordinance, but allowed
Waste Management to collect
garbage in the city of Midway. He
said he was able to negotiate a
reduction in charges for both resi-
dential and commercial users.
In an unrelated matter, city
growth management director Roo-
sevelt Morris told council members
that his department had processed
13 commercial inspections and 95
residential inspections in the month
of March.

PINIONS


The more things change, the
more they remain the same.
This week, the cold case I pro-
filed is that of Deborah Copeland.
Before writing these articles, I look
back in the files to see what was
written at the time of the murders. I
was surprised to learn that the first
news article I ever wrote for the
Gadsden County Times was the
Copeland murder.The murder was
also the subject of my first column.
This is most of what I wrote for
the February 6, 1986 issue:
"Gadsden County recorded its
first murder of the year a week
ago. To some, one murder per
month is the next best thing to liv-
ing crime free.
Not true.
One murder is one too many.
This crime is particularly hideous;
two miles from her home at night
and she was run down by her own


vehicle. It doesn't seem like a
crime of passion.
Sheriff's deputies admit they
have no suspects. It's not from lack
of trying, because three men have
been eating and sleeping this case
since the body was discovered.
They are not miracle workers; they
have to systematically build a case
that will stand up in court and not
violate anyone's rights in the
process.
Someone must have seen some-
thing, found an event, or some-
one's behavior enough out of the
ordinary to question deviations.
But forgive me, I momentarily
forgot that no one wants to get
involved because it isn't your prob-
lem. No one wants to talk to the
people we pay to protect us unless
it affects our family. It's only a
crime when it hits home that we
want the neighbors, friends, and


anyone available to tell law
enforcement officers what they saw
or heard.
Try, if you can, to transform
yourself into Betty Copeland. The
victim's mother, or one of her sis-
ters or brothers. What they have
lost is not a stereo or garden tools
or a few gold necklaces, trinkets
and charms. They have lost a mem-
ber of their family, a part of them.
Worst of all, two beautiful chil-
dren, both under six years old,
have lost a mother.
It is too late to save Deborah
Jean Copeland. But it is not too
late for this community to band
together to ferret out crime.
Then I went on to talk about the
need for neighborhood crime
watch. They are still very much
needed and we have at few scat-
tered around the county. I don't
know if there are any in the city.
When then Sgt. Glynn Beach tried
to start some they died from lack
of interest.
SSince Copeland's murder, there
have been many more in the
county. Some have been solved,
others have not.
They are still looking for who
killed Deborah Jean.

WalkAmerica April 30th


Spring is in the air and everyone
seems to be taking advantage of the
warm weather and longer days. That
is, everyone except the 1 in 8 babies
born prematurely in Florida. No
doubt that in the last few weeks you
have heard or seen information in
the community about the upcoming
March of Dimes WalkAmerica.
When you participate in WalkA-
merica, you are helping the March
of Dimes raise money to fund
research and programs to find the
causes of prematurity.
Premature birth is a bigger prob-
lem than you think. More than
476,000 babies are born prema-
turely each year, many so small
their lives hang in the balance.
Nearly half the cases of premature
birth happen for unknown reasons.
This is why we need your support.
Unfortunately, Gadsden County
has more than its share of premature
babies and babies born with birth
defects.
Just ask Sarah Graham, Lynette
Davis, Travis and Princess Burns, or
Lashonda Baker. These are only a
few families that have been
impacted by premature birth or birth
defects. If you take a good look, it is
closer to you than you think. Even if
you don't plan on having children,
you can still make a difference.


Educate yourself and your family
and friends about the importance of
prenatal care.
Women planning to have fami-
lies need to have a diet rich in folic
acid. Fathers need to learn the warn-

Rain, rain, go away and
come again another day.
Have you ever heard that one
before?
I've heard a lot those kinds of
comments lately and I'm sure you
have, too.
With all of the ditches full of
standing water, you can't help but
wonder where all the water will
go from the next rain. Especially
when you look to the west and see
another dark cloud looming on the
horizon.
Does all of this changing
weather have anything to do with
global warming or is it fulfillment
of prophecies? Could it be Mother
Nature doing what she does best,
keeping us on our toes?
All I have to base my scientific
conclusion on is what I can
remember seeing over the past
forty-five or so years.
Let me explain.
Back in 2000 one of the first
,t, lies I covered was the drought
.% e .vere experiencing at the time.
Cteeks had dried up, some local
p.'nJds were nearly empty and you
could wade across the
Ap.Ilachicola River in
BI,-.untstown.
That is not the first drought I
icme.mber. I believe it was some-
[rIne in the seventies it was so dry
iand windy farmers were afraid
that their fields were going to
blow' away.
I believe it was-alon&.tbout ..
r~.1,;i '


that time that we had some of the
Sahara Desert blow over here. I
remember hearing of exception-
ally dry weather in North Africa,
and high winds had blown the
dust across the Atlantic.
If I'm not mistaken we had a
haze of dust that was especially
noticeable at dusk for a couple
years.
Now speaking of rains.
I was a lap baby at the time (if
you don't know what a lap baby
is, then you ain't from here) so I
don't remember when the Lake
Talquin dam broke, but I've heard
about it and seen a lot of pictures.
Some of those pictures by the way
had me in them with the stumpy
lake bottom in the background.
I know that had to be a bad
rain.
I especially remember one
heavy rain when I was seven or
eight years old. We had been to
visit some family friends,
Grandpa and Grandma Henderson,
at Nine Mile Still north of
Whigham, Georgia. It had rained
for several days and all of the
roads were a mess.
In other words it was perfect
conditions for kids to play in: mud
and water.
Needless to say Eddie and I
had a good day.
One thing that really stood out
that day was a nearby poid that
overflowed into the road.
In the ditch I aw thousands of.

About home schooling

Dear Editor,
Mr. Ron Good's editorial
in. the Tallahassee Democrat on
June 19,2004 stated that "Home
schooling and religious schools
reduce opportunities for students to
think critically and compassion-
ately." Also, that "Separating chil-
dren from others who worship dif-
ferent gods... is likely to produce
people who are more rather than
less closed-minded."
Not every parent wants their
children subjected to "critical
thinking" with respect to other
gods, which is really a decision that
they do not want the Secular
Humanist agenda imposed upon
their children. The Humanist Mani-
festo was written in 1932 and
revised and updated in 1973, the
main tenant of which was that God
and the supernatural are rejected in
order to be replaced with man's rea-
son and science and the goal was to
introduce this concept into the pub-
lic education. The Humanist Mani-
festos I and II 1933, 1973 (Buf-
falo, NY: Prometheus Books, 1973)
pp.8-12. Obviously their Godless
philosophy goal has been achieved
in the view of the 1963 court ruling
which declared Bible reading and
prayer as unconstitutional in public
schools.
A state court actually brought
charges against parents who put
their children in a Christian school
even though the public school
admitted to teaching secular
humanism. The Ohio Supreme
Court ruled in favor of the parents
and ruled that "secular humanism"
was a form of religion. Ohio v. Wis-


ner, 47 Ohio St., 2d 1

huge tadpoles.
I thought at first they were
small catfish, but I found out later
they were bullfrog tadpoles.
The ditch was literally working
alive with big ol' tadpoles
I've never seen anything like
that since, but that was truly
amazing. In the late sixties
nearly every bridge in the county
got washed away and for several
years temporary metal bridges
were the only way across several
local creeks.
As a matter of fact one of those
metal bridges still exists today.
Let's have a little Gadsden
County trivia and see if you know
where it happens to be.
I'll give you a hint, it's not far
from Scott Town Dodger Park.
I'm sure you can think of other
examples of particular weather.
That's one thing I like' about
living in this area, if you don't
like the weather just wait a couple
of days and it will change!
So for my scientific theory
on the weather.
If squirrels and horses have a
thick coat in the Fall look for a
cold winter. If the moon is shaped
like a saucer it's not going to rain "
or if it is tilted on its side, look
out rain is coming.
If Aunt Rosie's bunion hurts,
there's bad weather around the
corner.
If there is ice on the ground it's
cold outside and if the creeks dry
up we're in a drought.
In other words, Mother Nature
is keeping us on our toes.

when he said, "The weather ain't
been the same since we turned it
over to those weather men on
T.V."
He ma\ ha\e hid a point.
numerous other citizens in district
four (4) to travel on dirt roads for
the last few years. Recently we
have experienced a lot of rain. I
have tried at nine (9) different
County Commission meetings to
urge my fellow commissioners to
pave roads based on the largest
population and greatest use of a
road, the greatest need or at least
the age of the road in order to give
some relief to those who have suf-
fered the longest.
Unfortunately, there has been
little attention given to resolve
these situations. There have been
several incidents in district four (4)
that have left people unable to get
to work and in fear of losing their
jobs.

Jail work crew helps with litter


By BYRON SPIRES
Times Staff Writer

Early every weekday morning
six local residents of the county
jail head out to help clean up
Gadsden County's roads.
They are the first of what is
hoped to be several road crews
leaving daily from the jail to pick
up the wayward trash that gets
deposited daily on byways all
over the county.
"We have six men now that
volunteer to come out on the
crews and pick up trash," Sgt., Jeff
March of the Gadsden County
Sheriff's department said.
It is a win-win situation. The
crew members get gain time
(reductions in their time served)
for their work and the county gets
roadside trash picked up. "This is
a program we started and we hope
it will grow to two or three crews
in the near future."
March said the program was
patterned after a Leon County
program that currently has 14
crews working throughout the
county.-
Sheriff Morris Young insti-


Deputy Sgt. Jeff March, left,
oversees a crew of six men
weekdays as they pick up trash
in the county. Pictured above is

they work along Strong Road

gated the program because of his
concerns about the amount of
trash along county roads.
According to March, roadside
trash is not the only trash the
crews will be picking up.
He said the crews were available


to help with other clean-ups, espe-
cially those that involve non-
profit organizations.
You can contact March through
the county jail at 875-8845 if you
would like more information
about the crews availability.

P and Z turns down land use change
60 acres in Sycamore did not get the nod for development


By BYRON SPIRES
Times Staff Writer

A large scale land use amend-
ment for 60 acres in the Sycamore
community failed in last week's
Gadsden County Planning and
Zoning Board meeting.
The property, owned by Advigo
Development Group is currently
zoned Agriculture 3 which allows
only one home per 20 acres. The
land use request was to change the
Ag 3 zoning to.Ag 1 which allows
one dwelling per five acres. The
land can then be developed accord-
ing to the county's comprehensive
plan to one dwelling.to two acres if
the lots are'-clusteredand 50 percent
6f theglaiiiai~"dedicated to conser-'
vation easement. The property is
located on Otho Whittle Road
which connects to County Road
270 west of Greensboro.
The county's comp plan requires
that any subdivision must be
accessed by a paved road. Whittle
Road is a dirt road.
Jamie Faircloth, who is buying
ten acres at the end of Whittle
Road, was concerned about the


road only being paved to the
entrance of the subdivision. Only
paving part of the road would cre-
ate a rain water run-off problem on
his property which is downhill
from the subdivision.
Other concerns from the board
were about changing the zoning
when the surrounding area contin-
ues to be Ag 3.
Board member Willard Rudd
said that Gadsden County is no
longer an agricultural county, and
what farming is in the area is pri-
marily "hobby" farming. Rudd
wants land made available for peo-
ple who are retiring and starting to
move back to the area.
Board member Diane Sheffield
said hier concerns are that a lot of
land in Gadsden County is zoned
Ag 1 and she does not see the need
to change the zoning until the cur-
rent Ag 1 land had been used up.
Sheffield made the motion to deny
the request. Rudd voted against the
measure.
The Planning and Zoning board
meets as an advisory board only.
All final decisions, are made by
Gadsden County Commission.

up in court, the
company cannot
file an appeal
based on the con-
nection with Williams.
"I assure, sir, that there is no
conflict of interest," said
Williams. He said he has never
lobbied for Progress Energy and
that the Florida Bar Association's
opinion is that there is no conflict
of interest. "I am ruled by what the

body. My representation of the
county is important to me. I can't
have a conflict of interest in any
situation. It's not what I say. It's

county.
Commissioner Sterling Watson
had another take on the matter.
"There is a little bit of gray here.
Mr. Williams represents two
groups that represent Progress

Williams invited VanLanding-

he agreed.

Crist Praises House
Passage of Freedom
to Worship Safely Act
Attorney General Charlie Crist
praised the Florida House for its
unanimous vote in favor of the
Freedom to Worship Safely Act,
which would increase penalties for
crimes committed against individu-
als engaged in religious activities
while in a house of worship. The
House voted 113-0 to adopt House
Bill 319, sponsored by Rep. Tim
Ryan. A companion bill is moving
through the Senate committee
process.
Places of worship should be
sanctuaries from the ravages of the
outside world, uniquely immune
from criminal acts, said Crist. The
Freedom to Worship Safely Act can
bring a measure of security for
parishioners in their moments of
reverence. I commend the House
for its quicl&passage of this impor-
tant legislation and-encourage the
Senate to do the same.
The legislation was prompted by
a shocking crime that occurred last
November, when two masked men-
burst into a Fort Lauderdale church
as worshipers celebrated a sunrise
Mass. At gunpoint, the robbers took
wallets and purses from the mostly
elderly parishioners. Current
Florida law provides enhanced
penalties for such offenses as car-
jackings and home invasion rob-
beries, but carries no such enhance-
ment for crimes committed in
houses of worship.

tion of books called "We The Peo-
ple Bookshelf", which includes
titles in both English and Spanish
about American History, has been
placed in the media center.
According to Ms. Tait, the

nationwide to receive this grant.
Stewart Street Elementary is proud
to receive recognition of its dedica-
tion to promoting reading by
exploring freedom at the library.

Tooth decay is the single most common chronic childhood disease five
times more common than asthma. To combat this problem in the State of
Florida, ACS State Healthcare Solutions has launched its Florida State Dental
Outreach Initiative Program. ACS State Healthcare Solutions successfully
launched this program in Georgia in 2004 and provided dental screening for
over 4,000 children. A dental screening program was held at the George
Munroe Elementary School, 1830 West King Street, Quincy, FL, at 9:00 a.m.
The program will provide free dental screenings and education to under-
served children throughout the State. The initiative, in partnership with the-
Sunshine State Dental Society (SSDS), and the Dade County Dental Society
(DCDS), will educate and screen approximately 5,000 children in its first year.
"As corporate residents of Florida, we are concerned about the health and
well-being of our neediest children," said Harvey Braswell, chief executive
officer of ACS State Healthcare Solutions. "Together with our partners, we
hope to teach these children that practicing good dental hygiene now will have
a profound impact on their health for years to come."
The ACS State Healthcare Solutions Dental Initiative will include seminars
at participating schools, churches and community facilities. During each event,
students will receive critical education, a free dental screening and a gift bag
containing a toothbrush, toothpaste and dental education material. In addition,
children will receive a screening evaluation and a recommendation report to
share with their parents or guardian.
For many children, the ACS State Healthcare Solutions Dental Initiative
screening will be their first dental check-up. In fact, the American Dental Asso-
ciation (ADA) and the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) state that chil-
dren from low-income families are less likely to see a dentist regularly, and suf-
fer twice as many dental cavities as their peers. In addition, pain and suffering
due to untreated diseases lead to problems in eating, speaking and paying atten-
tion in school. The ADA and the AAP also state that 51 million school hours
are lost each year as a result of dental-related problems.
"As the Fiscal agent for Florida Medicaid, we feel a corporate obligation to
help reverse the devastating problems caused by lack of access to routine den-:
tal care," said Dr. Leo McKay, Chief Operating Officer of ACS State Health-
care Solutions. "The ACS State Healthcare Solutions Dental Initiative is our
way of reaching into communities throughout the state to help every Florida
child have a bright smile."

It's Time for a Change
This day we are living in sometime seems like Satan is trying to prove his
power to increase sin in the world today, but God is still in control. The eyes of
the Lord are in every place beholding the evil and the good. God allows Satan
to do everything he does. We Christians have God's word to stand on. The ..
word of our God shall stand forever even though the grass withers and the flow- Aie'. 1
ers fade away. God gave the word to Adam not to eat of the tree of knowledge, --
like today, Satan is trying to show the people of God there is a way out other than the way God
said that there is no other way. Psalm 9:10. And they that know thy name will put their trust in thee.
For thou Lord, hast not forsaken them that see< thee: Are we as children seeking help from God?
Christ is the answer. Lord revive us again. And ye shall find me, when ye shall search for me with
all your heart, Jeremiah 29;13. We need to change our attitude to gratitude. Adam tried to blame
Eve, Eve tried to blame the serpent. It was just like the people today, there is no one to blame but
Satan. For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men, teaching us, not the
world, but the Christian teaching us that denying ungodliness and worldly lust, we should live
soberly, righteously and godly. In this present world are we sure we are doing our part? Titus 2:11-
12. It's time for a change. The Lord is with you while ye be with him and if ye seek him, he will be
found of you; but if ye forsake him he will forsake you, 2 Chronicles 15:2. There is a problem some-
where, its not the word of God, so it must be man. The Bible is and always has been God's com-
puter. It's never down, so we need to check ourselves out and see if it's time for a change since
about everybody practically are Christians. Matthew 18:19 states where two or three are gathered
together touching and agreeing I will saith the Lord, be there and do that need. Can we agree on
the word of God?
Humbly submitted, Florence Mims Bradwell

If we could have a lifetime wish
A dream that would come true
We'd pray to God with all our hearts
For yesterday and you.
A thousand words can't bring you back
We know because we've tried
Neither will a thousand tears
We know because we've cried
You left behind our broken hearts
And happy memories too
But we never wanted memories
We only wanted you.

You are in our hearts always,

Florida Shrimp

for Summer
With warm weather and
grilling season right around the
corner, it is the perfect time to
enjoy wild-caught Florida
Shrimp. Attached are several
enticing shrimp recipes, sure to
be enjoyed with family and
friends this grilling season.
According to a recent consumer
survey, many consumers don't
even know they have a choice
when it comes to buying shrimp.
The Florida shrimping indus-
try is in crisis due to mass quan-
tities of foreign farm-raised
shrimp flooding the market at
prices so low that the Florida
shrimpers cannot compete. This
shrimp is of far less quality than
the shrimp from Florida's pris-
tine waters and may contain
antibiotics. The Florida Depart-
ment of Agriculture and Con-
sumer Services launched the
Florida Shrimp: Wild & Wonder-
ful! campaign to educate con-
sumers and raise awareness
about the importance of asking
for and buying wild-caught
Florida shrimp, To that end, the
Department has partnered with
world-renowned chefs to create
recipes using Florida shrimp. A
selection of recipes is in the
attached release with additional
'recipes available online at
,-ywww. WildFloridaShrimnp.com.

Bradwell Mortuary






Where Everybody is Somebody
Serving the community with precious,
dignified and personalized service. Monte C Bradwell, LED.
18300 Blue Star Highway Hwy. 90W Quincy 627-3700


Too many citizens do not realize
how difficult it has been for numer-
ous other citizens in district four
(4) to travel on dirt roads for the
last few years. Recently we have
experienced a-lot of rain. I have
tried at nine (9) different County r' I
Commission meetings to urge my
fellow commissioners to pave
roads based on the largest popu-
lation and greatest use of a road, i
the greatest need or at least the age of the road in order
to give some relief to those who have suffered the
longest. Unfortunately, there has been little attention
given to resolve these situations. There have been sev-
eral incidents in district four (4) that have left people
unable to get to work and in fear of losing their jobs.
Most notably, as I recall the excessive rain of the past
week, just "takes the cake". Just the other day, I, along
with several members of one local community was
forced to assist a young lady whose car was stuck in the
middle of the road. This was truly a tremendous under-
taking because the truck that we were using to pull the
car out of the mud became lodged as well. We put
sticks, limbs and a couple of tires under the wheels to
get both the vehicles out of the mud. This effort left
everyone involved muddy. Your elected officials may
continue to refuse to have workshops and refuse to help
you who are in need, but remember those very needs
are the reason that you elected them in the first place.
Since districts 1,2,and 5 are perhaps 70 to 90 percent
paved, likewise districts 3 and 4 should be brought up to
these same percentages so we may be equally repre-
sented in Gadsden County. I am now asking for the
support of all of Gadsden County's citizens to call your
County Commissioner on behalf of those who are in
need and remind them that it is their responsibility to
help those who are less fortunate and please request
that they have workshops to look at those needs in order
to better serve our county.

County ponders


fire station site


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

Just where the county is going to
put new fire stations is a $64,000
question.
Tommy Baker told the Board of
County Commissioners that a site
for the Robertsville/St John Fire
Department is at the corner of St.
John School Road and Hutchinson
Ferry Road. The design would have
the same basic plan as the fire sta-
tion in Mt. Pleasant. But since the


property had not been purchased,
commissioners asked Baker to con-
tinue exploring options and the
bring those ideas back to a future
meeting.
Commissioners also had concerns
about the fact the placing fire sta-
tions in the county that are not near
a water source could be counterpro-
ductive. However, the hydrants that
are currently scattered throughout
the county were located because
that is where Talquin's water source
has four-inch water lines.

Her now-adult children have chil-

more than toddlers when their
mother dropped them off at their

"The one thing (about her mur-
der) is that it has brought us closer

go anywhere without someone in
the family knowing where wx e are

Commute

form which can be done over the phone by calling 1-
888-454-7433 or online at www.commuterservices.org.
Once the user completes the form Commuter Services
will send the applicant a list of neighbors and co-work-
ers that are also interested in pooling. The match list is
distributed with only the work phone and work address
of the user to ensure privacy. There is no obligation to
use the list and there is no cost associated with the pro-
gram.
Americans have a relationship with their automobiles
Horton said, and a lot of times are hesitant to give up
their freedom to come and go as they please.
But, high gas prices have put a damper on some of that
freedom, he added. "We have seen a rise in the number
of people looking at our program as they look at alterna-
tive ways to save on vehicle costs," Horton said.
Once a person decides to start carpooling the savings
are dramatic.
"If a commuter carpooled with just one other person
the savings would be $11.50 a day for that carpool, or
$1750 a year by carpooling just three days a week,"
Murphy said.
For potential carpoolers concerned about not having a
car at work if an emergency arises, Commuter Services
offers the Guaranteed Ride Home Program.


The program will guarantee you a ride home. There
are three stipulations attached to the guarantee: you
must live in the service area, commute at least three
times a week by van or carpooling, and complete a reg-
istration form. A voucher is issued to pay for your ride
home usually by taxicab.
In addition to Commuter Services help, for those that
carpool with four or more the state will give you a
reserved parking place. For those that van-pool the same
agreement applies.
Local resident Betty Culver has been van-pooling for
several years. "I would definitely recommend it to
other people," Culver said.
Culver said she has driven a Big Bend Transit van for
the past ten years and finds it the best way to commute.
Culver drives the 15-passenger van to Tallahassee every
day. She works for the state and because she is the driver
does not pay for the commute. The cost, she said, is very
reasonable for those that do pay, varying between $40
and $50 a month to ride.
She is a believer of van and carpooling and adamantly
encourages others to do the same. "It saves you a lot
of money and is the only way to go."
Culver said she recruited the riders she has and they
all work in the downtown area. Her van leaves Quincy
at 6:30 a.m. and returns at about 5:10 p.m. daily.
Commuter Services serves all of Gadsden County and
thr programs are free of charge. If you would like more
information about carpooling, van-pooling or their other
programs you can contact Consumer Services at 1-888-
454-7433.

sary of our ownership of The Gadsden County Times than to
count nearly one fourth more readers than we had last year. It's
been a great first year for us as we met many, many fine people
in Gadsden County, many of whom have become loyal readers.

We have more planned for the coming year:
*Special sections that focus on our lives in Gadsden Co.
eSpecial publications outside the normal scope of our

eMore news. More news. More news. We will be increasing
our news staff this year. We've seen the number of staff-pro-

Student Teacher gains experience

at Havana Middle School


K2
4


Hello! My name is Ms. Taheera L.
Gray. I am a native from Birmingham,
Alabama. I have a son four, and a
daughter two. This is my senior year
at Florida A & M University where
my major is Physical Education.
My goal as a Student Teacher is to
gain more experience and insight to
help me educate and nourish my stu-
dents. For the past fourteen weeks, I
have been interning under Mrs. Prefe-
ria P Range at Havana Middle School
acquiring more knowledge and peda-
gogy techniques that will be useful
when I have my own classroom.
Some of the major skills that I have
learned from my experience is Behav-


ioral Management, GLE's, (Grade
Level Expectations), and how to
incorporate other Core Subjects and
FCAT Skills into my Physical Educa-
tion lessons. I feel that these are very
important because I did not learn
these attributes at FAMU. But I
learned them at Havana Middle
School under Mrs. Range. I am very
thankful for the opportunity I had to
work with Mrs. Range, the students,
and staff at Havana Middle School,
and I would like to thank everyone for
making this a unique and beneficial
learning experience. I hope someday I
will get a chance to work with HMS
again. GO BEARS!!!!!!!!!!


Wal-Mart contributes to Munroe's annual campaign


"For the past 35 years Robert F.
Munroe Day School has provided
areachildren with a college prepara-
tory education unequaled in Gads-
den County. To continue moving
forward as a premiere educational
facility, RFM has launched an
Annual Campaign," said Rache'l
Layerd, Director of Development.
Wal-Mart's donation of $750
helps the school made the goal of
$35, 000 a reality. The goal was set
considering $1,000 for each year
that the school had been serving the
area students. While the tuition dol-
lars cover minimal costs of provid-
ing an education for a child, the
Annual Campaign will provide the
means necessary for numerous
resource and budget requirements
that are not covered by tuition.
In order to attract quality teach-
ers, maintain the low student-
teacher ratio, and continue to
upgrade textbooks, vans, buses, and
other items crucial to the daily oper-
ations, it is important to set long
range goals and provide funding to
carry them out. "Wal-Mart's gen-
erosity is evidence of their partner-
ship with the community. I hope
others will join them and make a
donation. We have already raised


$16,000 of the $35,000 goal. That
comes from small donations that
add up quickly. Every alumni,.
friend, parent and business can help
make a huge difference," said Lay-
erd.
"Donations can be mailed to the


school at 91 Old Mt. Pleasant Road,
Quincy, Florida 32352. If there are
questions, please call me at (850)
567-7302."

Trial


Munroe seniors take trip of a lifetime


By Samuel Iglesias
For most of us, the alarm clock
chimed at around 3 o'clock, dark
and early. The sluggishness coming
out of bed was soon replaced with
another feeling.
For some, it was jitters about fly-
ing for the first time and for others,
an eagerness to experience the joys
of skiing. We double-checked our
bags, packing every possible cubic
centimeter with warm clothing.
Most of us were fully awake by
4:30AM when we arrived at Talla-
hassee Airport, checking in our bags
and receiving our tickets. We kissed
our parents goodbye, and in less
than three hours, the golden sun was
peeking from beyond the horizon.
Hundreds and hundreds of feet into
the air, Munroe's class of 2005 was
Colorado-bound.
After four hours in the air, with the
particularly enjoyable "Denver tur-
bulenc6," as the stewardess put it,
we were on our feet, alive and well


in Colorado, though one of us,
admittedly, had to make use of a
courtesy Delta vomiting-bag. Five
days of icy bliss were ahead.
Some caught on to skiing right
away. Jay Revell and Tyler McKin-
non were among the few neophyte
skiers who were ready to tackle the
larger slopes after merely a few min-
utes on the "bunny slopes."
Others like Samuel Iglesias and
Nicole Pendleton needed the
esteemed instruction of Bradford
May and Bob Wilder, skiing afi-
cionados.
Samuel relied on the ropes at the
bottom of the slope to assist him in
stopping his uncontrolled 40-mile
per hour journey. Everyone eventu-
ally got the hang of skiing.
For those of us who craved some-
thing more adventuresome, tubing
was being offered at a nearby ski
resort. This, however, resulted in
half an hour of tubing, and nearly
five hours of traveling.


Among those encountered on our
various buses were some interesting
people: a bus driver who dropped us
off and picked us up thirty minutes
later, an electromagnet engineer
from England, snowboarders who
enjoyed pelting Ms. Johnson's
rental van with snowballs, an angry
Leprechaun, and an intoxicated fel-
low with a pair of scissors.
The time we spent waiting for
buses was particularly special, as we
were each other's source of warmth
in the merciless three-degree chill of
Colorado night.
But between the sheer excitement
of skiing down mountains together
and enjoying the town of Brecken-
ridge, with its infinite array of shops
and restaurants, we became closer as
a class.
S One could say that the years we
spent together growing up made us a
better class. But the repose and
togetherness offered by a town far,
far away made us the best class.

became upset when Solis and
Ammons tried to leave the party.
Nessmith allegedly slapped Solis in
the face and Solis became angry.
Solis stayed around and later left
the house with Nessmith, Ammons
and Shiver. Sometime later the four-
some split up and Nessmith and
Solis returned to Stanford's house
together.
It was unclear from the report
what transpired between the time
Solis returned to the house with
Nessmith and left to get his broth-
ers. Eventually, The three Solis
brothers came back to Stanford's
house and found Nessmith.
Ammons, Stanford and Shiver
standing in the yard. Mauro Solis
allegedly got out of the car and con-
fronted Nessmith about the slap and
struck her, knocking her to the
ground.
Stanford allegedly went inside his
home and got a shotgun. The report
stated that Mauro Solis stood in
front of the shotgun and asked Stan-
ford if he was going to shoot him
over Nessmith. He then wrestled the
gun away, but not before the gun
fired. No one was hurt when the
firearm discharged. Solis then
allegedly took the gun and began
beating Stanford with it and the two
brothers then got out of the car and
joined the fray. Shiver jumped in to
help Stanford. -
A six-member jury will get the
opportunity to sort out what hap-
pened that afternoon and night at
160 Juniper Road. The trial is
expected to last two days.


2 North Adams Street in July, 2004 the bank has
grown to exceed $17 million in deposits.
Rowan, who previously served as president of
Quincy State Bank, commented "we are very
pleased and grateful for the support that our
friends in Gadsden County have shown us since
the opening of Premier Bank. We look forward to
providing an even greater level of service to the
community as we open our new facility".
Rowan stated that Cook Brothers, Inc. has been
selected to complete the construction of the
4,000 square foot bank. The bank will have three
drive up lanes and two ATM's and will follow the
"old Florida" style.
David Gardner, executive director of Gadsden
County Chamber of Commerce said "We are
very excited that Premier Bank's new location
will not only serve their customers in Quincy but
serve our entire County."

form which can be done over the
phone by calling 1-888-454-7433 or
online at
www.commuterservices.org.
Once the user completes the form
Commuter Services will send the
applicant a list of neighbors and co-
workers that are also interested in
pooling. The match list is distrib-
uted with only the work phone and
work address of the user to ensure
privacy. There is no obligation to
use the list and there is no cost asso-
ciated with the program.
Americans have a relationship
with their automobiles Horton said,
and a lot of times are hesitant to give
up their freedom to come and go as
they please.
But, high gas prices have put a
damper on some of that freedom, he
added. "We have seen a rise in the
number of people looking at our
program as they look at alternative
ways to save on vehicle costs," Hor-
ton said. *
Once a person decides to start car-
pooling the savings are dramatic.
"If a commuter carpooled with just
one other person the savings would
be $11.50 a day for that carpool, or
$1750 a year by carpooling just
three days a week," Murphy said.
For potential carpoolers concerned
about not having a car at work if an
emergency arises, Commuter Ser-
vices offers the Guaranteed Ride
Home Program.
The program will guarantee you a
ride home. There are three stipula-
tions attached to the guarantee: you
must live in the service area, com-
mute at least three times a week by
van or carpooling, and complete a
registration form. A voucher is
issued to pay for your ride home
usually by taxicab.
In addition to Commuter Services
help, for those that carpool with four
or more the state will give you a
reserved parking place. For those
that van-pool,the same agreement
applies.
Local resident Betty Culver has
been van-pooling for several years.
"I would definitely recommend it to
other people," Culver said.
Culver said she has driven a Big
Bend Transit van for the past ten
years and finds it the best way to
commute. Culver drives the 15-pas-
senger van to Tallahassee every day.
She works for the state and because

Gadsden County Chamber of
Commerce executive director David
Gardner is pleased to announce that

location along Interstate 10,
"Florida's major east-west corri-
dor allows us the opportunity to take
advantage of the tourism Florida
generates. Not only will the county
benefit from new jobs created by
the inn, there will be added tax rev-
enue generated by tourist that tra-
verse our county daily," Gardner
said.
Plans are for the inn to be opened

Relay for Life ready



for its annual run


RELAY
FOR LIFE


The City of Quincy


Relay for Life Fish Fry


By ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

SThe teams have formedthe goal
has been set. All that is left is for the
people of Gadsden County to partic-
ipate in the annual Relay For Life to
benefit the Quincy Unit of the
American Cancer Society this Fri-
day and Saturday. The 18-hour event
will be held at Corry Field on
Graves Street in Quincy from 6 p.m.
Friday, April 15, through 12 noon
Saturday, April 16.
Organizers hope that thousands
will attend to walk a lap or two and
donate to the fundraiser. The goal
this year is to raise $50,000. The
theme this year is "Fighting.
Together A.ainst Cancer". E\pect to


see some innovative and creative
campsites using the theme.
"Twenty eight teams have already
signed on and we welcome any oth-
ers. Individual walkers are also
encouraged. So if you aren't a mem-
ber of a team, come out anyway.
This is such a community wide
event, anyone who shows up will
see someone they know," said Ros-
alyn Smith, event chairperson.
The event will lead off with the
Survivors Lap. This year's honorary
co-chairpersons are two cancer sur-
vivors, the Rev. Leroy Colston and
Catherine Moore.
"I am humbled to be asked to co-
chair, as well as represent those who
have been involved in the planning
and hosting of these activities. Many


hours have been spent in planning
and preparation for this event. I am
confident that our labor will yield
high dividends," Colston said.
For the past nine years, Colston
has been active with Relay For Life,
having been a 24-year survivor of
stomach cancer. Catherine Moore, a
former licensed practical nurse at
Tallahassee Memorial Hospital,
worked with cancer patients before
she, too, was diagnosed with cancer.
"Following my surgery, I asked to
recuperate on the seventh floor
(where she once worked and what is
referred to as the cancer floor)
because I had seen the miracles per-
formed on that floor," she said.
See RELAY on Page BS

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
Sfor a down payment, taxes, title and tag


*Paying someone a $5000 $6000 profit
on a $10,000 automobile.
Here's what we've done at Direct Automo-
tive Wholesale:
*All vehicles are priced at the "Loan
Value". which is the price credit unions and
banks will loan you on this vehicle.
*We require NO DOWN PAYMENT on any
of our vehicles. We can even help with your
taxes and tag most of the time.


*At LOAN VALUE, we make a small Profit
and you get a great deal!
The best Part is we have family on the lot,
NOT HIGH PRESSURE SALES PEOPLE.
If you don't see the car of your dreams in
this ad. call us. We'll get you pre-approved.
tell you what it will cost and buy it for you.
We appreciate you're supporting us. Come
by or call.

Munroe's Fagg


signs with TCC

Friday's assembly was one that the entire student body was
invited to at Robert F. Munroe Day School.
TCC's girls' basketball coach, Theresa Atkinson, along with
Coach Van Bryant were on hand to witness Danielle Fagg' s
formal signing for the athletic grant in aid she has been offered
from Tallahassee Community College. Danielle's parents, pas-
tor, grandmother, and brother attended as well.
Daniel has played basketball for seven years and varsity for
four. She has spent the last two seasons as a Lady Cat.
Danielle was selected All Big Bend in her junior year and First
Team All Big Bend this year. She was All County in her 10th,
llth, and 12th grades.
She is a three-sport star at Munroe. In basketball, she was the
Big Bend's leading scorer and placed near the top in rebound-
ing, assists, and steals this year. She averaged a double double
for each year at Munroe.
Danielle scored her 1,000th point this season and was
awarded the game ball as Coach Van stopped play to recognize
the point scored. In volleyball and softball she continues in the
same tradition. "
Her contributions to each team have been tremendous," said
Athletic Director, Susie Morris. Danielle will begin as a Lady

tournament finals early in May.
A win Friday by Aucilla will
give the Warriors the top seed in
the tournament.
A Munroe win will probably
force a coin flip to determine the
top seed.
Both teams feature top notch
players and coaches.
The Bobcats shortstop
Andrew Gay is hitting .558 and
has signed with Chipola to play
college baseball. Aucilla's Drew
SheTrod is 5-0 on the mound this
year and is hitting .429 He has
signed a scholarship with North


Florida in Madison where he will
continue his baseball career.
Munroe also has senior
pitcher Joey Higdon who is 6-0
this year. He's also having a
good year at the plate batting
.326. Higdon did not pitch in the
first game the two teams met but
he will probably start Friday
night.
If Sherrod doesn't start for
Aucilla then lefty Ridgley
Plaines might be on the hill. He
has a 4-2 record. Plaines brings a
.344 batting average to the con-
test.


Munroe's Whiddon Macon
who is hitting .405 and Aucilla's
Casey Gunnels who is batting
.487 are two other players to
watch in the match up.
Bob Baston who is in his sec-
ond year at the Munroe helm
was recently named Coach of the
Year for Class A in District 4.
Ray Hughes has been the
Aucilla coach for 29 seasons and
recently won his 450th game as a
baseball coach..
The game will begin at 7 pm
and it should be a good one.

Covenant Hospice to

sponsor teleconference

The subject of ethics at the end of life generates
an array of opinions and responses on methods to
improve or enhance the quality of life for the ter-
minally ill. This year, Hospice Foundation of
America's (HFA) 12th Annual National
Bereavement Teleconference focuses on "Ethical
Dilemmas at the End of Life." Moderated by
Cokie Roberts, ABC News Political
Commentator and NPR Senior News Analyst, the
program will be broadcast Wednesday, April 20,
from 11:30 to 3:30 p.m. at the Leon County Health
Department, Bond Community Center, 872 W
Orange Avenue.
Ms. Roberts will lead a panel of noted national
authorities that includes ethicists, educators and
hospice experts. They will define, differentiate and
demonstrate the interrelationships between values,
ethics and law in health care settings, and examine
how cultural differences may influence ethical
choices. In addition, the social perspectives of
medical ethics and how various health care set-
tings may influence ethical decisions in hospitals,
nursing homes and hospices will be explored.


A panel of local experts will answer questions
from the audience following the broadcast Local
panelists include, James Hinterlong, PhD, Steven
L. Tachin, Attorney at Law, Temple O. Robinson,
MD, Sharon Ross, MSW, LCSW and Doug Mills,
Covenant Hospice Chaplain.
"We often don't talk about death and dying until
it's too late. I think the teleconference will provide
an excellent springboard for initiating conversa-
tions, exchanging ideas and gaining new perspec-
tives on this complex topic," said Leonia Parker,
Community Educator for Covenant Hospice.
The teleconference is sponsored locally by
Covenant Hospice and is produced by Hospice
Foundation of America, a not-for-profit organiza-
tion, which acts as an advocate for the hospice con-
cept of care through ongoing programs of profes-
sional education, public information and research
on issues relating to illness, loss, grief and bereave-
ment This year the program is produced in coop-
eration with The Hastings Center, an independent,
nonpartisan, and nonprofit bioethics research insti-
tute founded in 1969 to explore fundamental and
emerging questions in health care, biotechnology,
and the environment.


Free Advance Care

Planning workshop

Covenant Hospice is offering a free Advance
Care Planning Workshop on April 26 from 9 am.
to 10:30 am., featuring keynote speaker attorney
Twyla Sketchley.
Advance Care Planning (ACP) is a process to
help extend your rights through documentation
that guides your medical care should you become
unable to communicate your wishes.
Advance directives will be available for partici-
pants to complete during the workshop. This doc-
umentation consists of two primary concepts:
devising a living will and designating a health care
sunrogate. Less than 25% of Americans over the
age of 18 enact these rights in writing.
Covenant Hospice believes that ACP is for
everyone regardless of age or health status and
that it is important to make your wishes known so
that your loved ones will not have to endure the
pressure of deciding your health care, should you
no longer have the ability. Having this documenta-
tion can reduce conflicts and alleviate fears about
medical intervention and loss of dignity.
The workshop will be held in the Covenant
Hospice education room, 1545 Raymond Diehl
Road, Suite 102. Breakfast will be served. Seating
is limited and advance registration is encouraged.
Call 850-5754998 or 1-800-374-9733 for more
information.

Lamb Foundation to help Midway
Foundation to assist programs at city recreation center


By BYRON SPIRES
Times Staff Writer
SMidway residents will soon be
getting some help with the
Eugene Lamb, Jr. Recreation
Center.
Council members heard a
presentation by Deloris Lamb,
president of the Eugene Lamb, Jr.
Foundation, in which she said the
foundation would be coordinating
fund raising efforts and commu-
nicating the center's development
plans.
Deloris Lamb is the wife of
Eugene Lamb Jr. and the mother
of the foundations founder Brian
Lamb. According to Lamb the
foundation began shortly after the
center was named after her hus-
band in 2003. Eugene Lamb, Jr.
has been both a commissioner
and mayor of Midway. He retired
several years ago as a coach in
the Leon County School system
and as an employee of the Talla-
hassee Recreation Department.
He is currently a county commis-
sioner serving the Midway and
Havana District 1 seat.
The foundation has recently
received 501 C 3 tax exempt sta-
tuis.


A statement released by Brian
said that his father has been a pil-
lar of the Midway community.
"He has been an influential busi-
ness leader, devoted father, hus-
band, and Christian over the years
and put himself in position to be
remembered for a long time to
come," the statement said.
Deloris Lamb said that the
foundation would generate funds
to be used for such projects as
sports equipment, playground
equipment and landscaping for

research, advocacy, patient services, and education. Much of the money
raised here stays here to pay for direct services to victims who cannot afford
them. The 28 teams that have already signed up include schools, churches,
businesses, city and county government, and youth groups.
Throughout the 18-hour event there will be entertainment from Quincy
Mass Choir, Bethelites of New Bethel AME Church, a pajama party, the
reverse beauty pageant, Kids Corner, Praise Dancers from various churches,
and games throughout the night. At 9 p.m. the luminaria ceremony will
Begin. No one will be hungry from walking because several will sell foods
including mouthwatering barbecue, fried fish dinners, hot dogs and ham-
burgers.
Smith said teams or individuals can still sign up. For more information,
