The answer to
Molly Bramlett's
murder is in
Midway, Sheriff's
investigator thinks


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
As a child growing up in Pensacola
Molly Sue Bramlett liked to draw.more
than anything else, said her brother, John
David West, Jr.
"She was quiet and liked to keep to her-
self as much as you can keep to yourself
when you're one of six children," he said.
After 15 years, West and the other mem-


bers of her family
miss her and want
her killer found and
brought to justice.
The Bramlett
case is one of six-
teen cold cases

den County Sheriff
Morris Young has re

these cases can be


right," said Young.
Investigator Larry Smith, who has been


assigned to the case, said he is following
good leads. He is looking for the one or
two pieces of evidence needed to clear the
case. "The answer is in Midway. Some-
body in Midway knows who killed her and
we're going to keep at it until we find and
arrest the killer," Smith said.
Bramlett was 28 years old when her
body was discovered by a man picking up
aluminum cans on Brickyard Road

verdict:



Guilty
by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
It took a Gadsden County jury less than two
hours to return a guilty verdict in the two-day
second-degree mur-
der trial of Mauro
"Tony" Solis. He
was also found
guilty of aggravated
Battery. A not guilty
verdict was returned
on one count of kid-
napping.
S and i l. Solis' face showed
no emotion as the
S clerk read the ver-
.... dict. Family mem-
bers who sat behind
him shed a few
Mauro Solis tears.
Outside the court-
room Alice Stanford, the mother of the man
Solis beat to death with a rifle, cried openly
and hugged her daughters. "This.brings some
closure. I'm happy about this," she said.
The ordeal isn't really over for the
Stanfords and their family. Solis' two bothers,

Teen indicted


for murder
by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
Terrell Powell will stand trial as an adult. The
15-year-old arrested two weeks ago in the
shooting death of 51-year-old William Moses
Wilson was indicted on first-degree murder
charges last Friday. Powell was a student in the
New Horizon Program housed at Carter-Par-.
ramore Academy when arrested for the August
'2003 murder.
Wilson was found lying on the ground in the
back yard of the home he shared with his
brother and sister-in-law in the Robertsville
;ICommunity, north of the City of Quincy.
Authorities looked for the murderer and the
case was considered one of the county's cold
cases that Sheriff Morris Young promised to
open during his campaign for office.
The case was the first of 16 cold cases
solved.
Powell was also charged with armed robbery
with a firearm, armed burglary and grand theft.
Powell, who was 13 at the time of the murder,
allegedly confessed to deputies after he was
arrested.
Wilson was shot in the lower jaw and neck
and lay in the yard all night before a relative
walking in the yard saw him. He lived only a
short time after deputies arrived.


Sheriff W.





Woodham


Hundreds crowd


First Presbyterian to

honor, pay respects
by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
The police radio crackled, there was light static:
"Gadsden to Gadsden One, W.A. Woodham"
"Gadsden to Gadsden One, W.A. Woodham"
"Gadsden to Gadsden One, W.A. Woodham"
Silence. No response.
"Gadsden One is 10-87".
In law enforcement language, it means out of service.
And that is how Sheriff W.A. Woodham, 63, the Sher-
iff of Gadsden County for the past 33 years until his


retirement five months ago, was signed off the air per-
manently at Hillcrest Cemetery. A cool breeze stirred as
bagpipes played, as eight of his deputies carried his
body up a grassy knoll on the north side of the cemetery
to its.final resting place.
Muffled sobs and tears were shed as Walter Dover
sang a stirring rendition of Vince Gill's "Go Rest High
On That Mountain."
Hundreds of people attended the 2 p.m. services at
First Presbyterian Church. Law enforcement officers
from throughout the state came to pay their respects to
the man who was the Dean of the Florida Sheriff's
Association. There were seven current sheriffs and five
retired sheriffs as well as many state and local elected
officials.
The short service was marked with fond memories of
Woodham by two close friends, Alvin Pickels, Wood-
ham's former chief deputy, and the Honorable James
Harold Thompson, former Speaker of the Florida House

Brian Bailey cuts his yellow ribbon after returning from Iraq.

Son returns to surprise Mother


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
Last Wednesday night Freddie
and Mary Bailey got ready for bed
as usual.
"There was a knock on the door,
-we looked at each other because we
'couldn't imagine who would be
would be ringing the door bell at
'that time of night," Mary recalled.
'At the door was Brian Bailey, the
Couple's son. "Boy, why didn't you
:call us?" was the only thing Freddie
-Bailey was able to say. "It was such
*a shock to see him standing there."
SBrain served a year in Taji, Iraq
'about 11 miles west of Baghdad.
Back in the United States for one
month, he had been spending time
with his wife Deborah at Fort Hood,
.TX.
"We kept telling him that we
'were coming out there and he kept
stalling us. Each time we brought
up coming to Texas he would.
change the subject or figure out a
'reason why we couldn't come. At
one point he said he didn't want us
to come to Texas," Mary said.
The Baileys were perplexed but
honored their only son's wish. They
thought he just wanted to spend
some "alone time" with Deborah.
She, too, was mum about why Brian
didn't want his parents in Texas.
He had a master plan. Mary's
birthday was April 14 and it tiurn


out all of the mystery and elaborate
secrecy was a rouse to give his
mom a birthday surprise. "Thursday
was her birthday and I had neer
given her a surprise," he said.
Wednesday after his plane landed,
he rented a car and drove home.
Saturday afternoon family and
friends gathered at the Bailey's
Deerwood Circle home for an occa-
sion all of them had been waiting
for, for more than a year. "Before he
Left he tied a yellow ribbon around
the tree in the front yard. He told me
not to take it down that he would
take it down himself when he got
home," Mary said. Just after the
family enjoyed a barbecue dinner
that featured all of Brian's favorite
foods, he grabbed the scissors and
headed for the front yard. As every-
one watched and applauded, Brian
snipped the yellow ribbon. Then he
walked over to his 94-year-old
grandmother, Emma J. Farmer, and
gave her a big hug.
"My boy is back home," she said
with a true grandmother's smile
while clapping her hands. He had to
bend down for her to peck him on
the cheek, again.
He will be returning to his post at
Fort Hood this weekend. But
despite the war, he left Mary with
the best birthday gift a mother could
have. "He's safe, that was my gift,"
she said.

Screenings help combat dental disease


by BYRON SPIRES
Times Staff Writer

Several hundred elementary stu-
dents in Gadsden County were the
recipients of free dental screenings
last week. Each child received a free
screening of their teeth, with a writ-
ten record of the findings.
They also received some training
on good dental hygiene and a gift
bag filled with products including
toothbrush, toothpaste, and educa-
tional literature.
Tooth decay is the single most
common chronic childhood disease,
it is five times more common than
asthma.
Volunteer dentists found many of
the students to have tooth decay,
with several students having exten-
,sive decay problems.-. :
Students were examined by the


dentists in conjunction with ACS
State Health Care Solutions, a state
healthcare program administrator.
In partnership with Sunshine State
De9tal Society and the Dade County
Dental Society, plans are to educate
and screen 5,000 students in the first
year.
Parents will receive a copy of the
screenings' evaluations and recom-
mendations report. Gadsden County
was targeted as part of the program
because of the number of low-
income families that live in the
county.
Maximo Martinez, executive
director of the Gadsden Community
Health Council, a clearing house for
all health grants and projects in the
county said the dental screening was
a much needed service for the
county.,
Martinez added that the program


had received the support of the
Gadsden County Health Depart-
ment, the Gadsden County Board of
County Commissioners, the North
Florida Medical Center and the
county's health council.
If you would like more informa-
tion about the dental screenings or
any health project in the county you
can contact Martinez at The Gads-
den Community Health Council at
17 East Jefferson or by phone at
875-7223 ext. 410

Marlon Brown, the assistant to
Tallahassee's city manager, has been
named Gadsden county manager.
The Board of County Commission-
ers agreed to the negotiated contract
except for two points: full health
insurance for his entire family and a
definition of "cause" as in termina-
tion with cause.
Under the terms of the negotiated
contract, Brown will receive a base
pay of $84,900, use of a county
automobile for business and per-
sonal use, $100,000 life insurance
policy, 25 days of annual leave, 12
days of sick leave, 3 personal leave
days and coverage under the Florida
Retirement Pay Classification. If
terminated (with cause) the Board is
required to notify him in writing and
no severance pay applies. If he is
terminated without cause he will
receive six months severance pay up
to 300 hours of unused annual leave
and one-fourth of unused sick leave.
Commission Chairman Ed Dixon
said Brown was adamant about his
pay package throughout the negotia-
tions.
"I've got several problems. I
believe the base salary is too high.
I'd like to see how he does in six
months or a year then take a look at
it. Number 2, I can't go along with
use of the county vehicle for per-
sonal use. I don't think its setting a
good example for other employees.
Not too long ago, we had discus-
sions about employees driving
county vehicles. And I don't think
we should get into carrying his
whole family (in health insurance
coverage) because we don't do it for
anyone else. I don't think we should
feed the general more than we do
the troops," Commissioner Sterling
Watson said.


-I
Ar


Marion Brown
Commissioner Eugene Lamb
said he too could not support a fam-
ily health insurance package nor the
personal use of a county vehicle.
Dixon said throughout the nego-
tiations he was cognizant of the feel-
ings of members of the board. "This
contract is a huge leap, but so is the
caliber of individual he is. He has
what is called added value having
run major departments and with a
planning background. It's not that
much more than the former manager
(made)." Dixon said.

Brown will receive a
base pay of $84,900, a
$100,000 life insurance
policy, 25 days of annual
leave, 12 days of sick
leave, 3 personal leave
days and coverage
under the Florida
Retirement Pay
Classification.

He defended the use of the vehi-
cle saying the position is not like
any other county position. He said
Brown will be expected to perform
many and varied tasks. He asked


commissioners not to allow the per-
sonal use of a vehicle to grind the
discussion on the contract to a halt.
Interim manager and personnel
director, Arthur Lawson, explained
that there are subtle differences in
the county manager's contract from
the previous manager. "It's only
about a $4,000 difference in his
salary and the previous manager's
salary package. And the previous
manager had a $150,000 life insur-
ance policy. In any negotiations you
have give and take."
Commissioner Brenda Holt said
that employees driving vehicles
home had always been a "sticking
point" but wasn't bothered by the
manager using the vehicle for per-
sonal use. Lawson reminded the
Board that they were hiring a man of
integrity who would not, in his opin-
ion, abuse the vehicle.
"We have fired people in the past
for using a county vehicle for per-
sonal use. I think it sets a bad exam-
ple," Watson said.
In other matters, Lawson
informed commissioners that the
contract with D & S Transportation
to transport veterans to Lake City,
Gainesville, and Tallahassee for
appointments ran out March 1. The
service is still being provided by the
company on a month-to-month
basis, which is costing the county a
little more than $7,500 per month.
Lawson speculated that by the end
of the year, veterans' transportation
will cost about $89,000.
Lawson said he met with staff
and recommended the county take
over the veterans' transportation
service. The move would also
employ two part time drivers and
the county would own the van. By
keeping the service in-house, Law-
son said the county could provide
the same service for as little as
$32,000 per year.

Local actress lands television

role in "Law and Order" series


by BYRON SPIRES
Times Staff Writer

Have you ever wondered what it
would be like to rub elbows with
televisions stars or even better -
to have an opportunity to be on a
television show?
One young lady with ties to
Gadsden County can answer that
question.
"It's wonderful," Guerrin Gard-
ner, daughter of David and Noreen
Gardner, said Monday night. David
is the Gadsden County Chamber of
Commerce director.
Guerrin will be in this week's
edition of Law and Order, which
aired on Wednesday night at 9 p.m.
The episode, titled "Publish or Per-
ish", includes in its regular cast of
characters Randy Graff and
Michael Imperioli ( from The
Sopranos).
Plans had originally been for the
show to be aired Wednesday, April
27, but at the last minute the show
was bumped up one week, Gardner
said.
She .is playing the part of
Celeste, an assistant to Karen, a
book editor that has been accused
of murdering a female adult movie
actor. Gardner said she would not
give away the ending, especially
for those that pick up the Gadsden
County Times on Wednesday night.
However, she will talk about the
part she plays in the show.
She is in two scenes, one when her
boss criticizes her in front of the
Imperioli and Dennis Farina who
play detectives on the show. Her


big scene in the episode is when
two detectives interview her in a
pizza parlor about her boss.
Gardner said that working on
the set of Law and Order had been
a wonderful experience.
"The cast and crew were so
helpful. It was just exciting being
around such talented people and
watching them work." The peo-
ple involved with the show had
gone out of their way to make her
comfortable. "On the set every-
body was super nice and hos-
pitable."
For Gardner this is the next step
in what she hopes will be a long
career in acting.
The spot on Law and Order was
a whirlwind of excitement for her.
It all started with the dropping of
her name to the right person. A
sorority sister also living in New
York City mentioned her name to a
casting agent for the show.
Gardner was contacted by the
agent and told that there might be
something in next year's season
available and to check back at a
later date. The next day the call
came. A slip up, Gardner was told,
had occurred and they needed her
to come in for an interview.
She got the part.
In a matter of four days she had
landed a guest appearance on Law
and Order.
A 2004 graduate of Florida State
University's School of Theatre,
Gardner moved to New York City
six months ago chasing her dream.
While at FSU, Gardner starred in
several productions including


Hotel project in jeopardy


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

The county could miss out on the
Community Development Block
Grant it had hoped to obtain to pay
for infrastructure that would pave
the way for water and sewer lines to
be extended beyond Interstate 10 at
tPat Thomas Park- ay. Juit last week'
ground was broken for the new
Hampton Inn by businessman Peter
Patel. The funds would be available


if, between the Hampton Inn and
another Holiday Inn expected to go
in the same area, these would hire
12 people.
Patel said he can only guarantee
nine jobs. The other hotel owner,
Victor Patel, is so far behind in his
project that it is doubtful he can get
all of the plans approved in time for
thi-grant-eyele,-which ends-May 19.
Commissioners were almost
stunned into silence when Nancy
Gee, grants coordinator updated


k Spectators arrested in dog fighting ring


Guerrin Gardner has been cast to be in an episode of "Law and Order"


"Crimes of the Heart", and "A Flea
in Her Ear".
She feels that her parents, her
upbringing, and family values have
helped her a lot along the way,
especially in pursuing her dream of
acting.
"My parents have been very
supportive of my decision to pur-
sue acting. They know I have
worked hard and have always been
there for me," Gardner said.
Gardner also gives credit to her
professors at thQ School of Theatre
and especially Ed Sharon. Sharon
is a director of movies, broadway
and television and is married to the
actor Jane Alexander. She met
Sharon when he was a visiting pro-
fessor at the School of Theatre."He
is a great mentor for me."
Gardner will admit that she is
having the time of her life, but it is
not all peaches and cream. She
misses home. "I miss Quincy, it
is so peaceful and quiet. It's a great
place to live."


them on the project. "We need 12
jobs between two hotels and we can-
not find them? When did all of this
happen?" asked Chairman Ed
Dixon.
"It came down to the wire at the
last meeting with the Patels," Gee
said.
It seems Victor Patel has only
submitted preliminary plans for the
hotel. And Peter Patel still has not
submitted a code conforming plan to
the Office of Growth Management,
according to county planner William
McCord. Approved preliminary site
plans and final site plans could take


Like all struggling actors, she
must supplement her dream with
the real world. Gardner works for
"Real Simple Magazine" to pay the
bills.
"They have been great and
allowed me to go on interviews.
They have given me the time off
that I've needed," Gardner said.
A career in acting is what she
wants and she has decided she will
give it her all.
She is currently interviewing for
other acting jobs and an improve
show at the Arts Nova Theatre (an
off-Broadway theatre) could be in
the future.
"I'm having a blast," she said
about her experiences so far.
One thing that Gardner said she
was sure of about her decision to
move to New York City and pursue
her career in acting: "I'm glad that
I will not have to look back and say
I did not do this."
She added," being here and act-
ing is exactly what I wanted to do."

up to three months.
Gee said the worse than can happen
is that the county moves forward
and hopes to get 12 jobs from the
Hampton Inn: If the three additional
jobs cannot be generated, the county
will have to pay back about
$105,000 to the state. "We have to
have those 12 jobs," Gee warned.
The Board asked Gee to meet
with the county attorney and
William McCord quickly to come
up with a plan t6 hieet the require-
ment for jobs. "If we' get water
and sewer across 1-10 growth will
come," said Dixon.

Citizens tired of dog fights in
their Sawdust neighborhood have
begun reporting suspected dog
fights to the Gadsden County Sher-
iff's Department. Sunday afternoon
three men, believed to be brothers,
were arrested and charged with
attending a dog fight as a spectator.
Six pit bull-type dogs were taken to
the animal shelter. Arrested were
Warren Street, 31, Tony Lorenzo
Street, 30, and Jerry Street, 22. Each
gave 401 Earlene Hobbs Road as
his address. A pit, consistent with
one used in dog fighting, was found
inside a shed behind the house.
"Dog fighting or cruelty to ani-
mals will not be tolerated in Gads-
den County. If we catch them, they
will be arrested and the animals will
not be returned," Young said.
Inv. Jim Corder said a report of


"Dog fighting or

cruelty to animals

will not be tolerated

in Gadsden County. If

we catch them, they

will be arrested and

the animals will not

be returned"

Sheriff Morris Young



dog fighting was called into the
sheriff's office early Sunday after-
noon. "The caller said there were
people inside a wooden shed watch-
ing dogs fight and gambling," he
said. When deputies arrived several
men were spotted standing in and
around a wooden shed, when they
saw the deputies drive hp, some ran
into the nearby woods.
Corder said once inside the shed
they found a homemade pit, which
consisted of wooden sides vith
pieces of old carpeting on the floor.
"The sides and the carpet were very
stained with old and fresh blood. It
was apparent from the pit and


amount of blood stains that many
fights had taken place there."
One of the pit bulls involved in
the fighting was still inside the pit


l j


bleeding from open facial wounds.
The other animals involved had
been allowed to run away, Corder
speculated. The scene around the
yard was also disturbing. "Located
in the yard were six other pit bull-
dogs some of them had old wounds
that were consistent with dog fight-
ing injuries. These dogs were
chained to the ground with heavy
linked chains. One dog had a leaded
weight around his neck," Corder
said.
Deputies also noticed a large.
water tank in the yard. He said
water tanks are commonly used to
strengthen and condition dogs. "The
dogs are thrown in the tank.and
forced to tread water for long peri-
ods of time," he said.
Since- the crackdown on. dog
fighting began three months ago, 30
animals have been confiscated and
several individuals arrested. Young
said the majority of the people
involved in dog fighting are also
involved in other criminal activity.
"There is a lot of money floating
around these dog fights," he said.
The problem is that the people
involved are difficult to apprehend
and the fights themselves take place
in secluded areas or back yards.
Residents, according to Corder,
are frightened by young men who.
walk through neighborhoods with
dangerous and seemingly poorly-
controlled animals. "The only way
for us to stop it is for the community
to report." he said.,
An one with information about
dog,,fighting or any.other criminal
activity is asked to call Inv. Corder
at 875-8847 or 395-4138.

PINIONS


I guess just about every-
one who knew W.A. Woodham
has an opinion, and that is most
people in this county. It speaks
volumes about a person who is in
law enforcement and who is held
in high.esteem by so many.
I meet him when I came to
work at the newspaper. Every
Monday morning I went to the
Sheriff's Office to check the
reports for my weekly stories. We
established the ground rules early.
You have to do that with people
in law enforcement. Mainly it
simply boils down to a mutual
understanding that I have a job to
do and they have a job to do. We
both understood that.
Now that's not to say we never
had a falling out. A couple of
times they were pretty bad, too.
We were able to work them out.
When there was news, he never
hesitated calling me, day or night.
When I first met him, he seemed
to get a kick out of calling me out
in the middle of the night to a
accident and I'd show up bright-
eyed and ready to go. He soon
discovered that I thrived at night.
So then it gave him great
pleasure to call me out early in
the morning. "Wake up," he'd
said, "you need to be out here.
Get your stuff and come on. You
are a newswoman aren't you?
News won't wait."

There have been times when
I've had to write articles that
weren't flattering at all about
goings on at the jail or what a
deputy might have been accused
of doing. I never took any great
joy in writing those kinds of arti-
cles and I still don't. But he knew
I had a job to do and never tried
to stonewall me. That's not to say
he never made me work for a
story. There were time when I
really had to hunt for what I
wanted and there were other
times when, after seeing my frus-
tration, he'd give me the clue I
needed.
He like to tease me, too.
I have a nephew who is with
the Florida Highway Patrol. He
and a couple of his friends come
up from south Florida several
times a year for training. Not
wanting to sleep in the old dormi-


tor\ at the acaden-tm in Tjllahas-
-see. he \\to ld often til.\ \\i1it ne.
One da\. there % ere abhttou ix
high\\ mj patrol cars i mi n\aidr
and parked in front on the isreet
There ere about eight 'officer-.
all mi nrepheu 's friends, becJLase
I'd decided to have a couk-out 1ol
them. I don't know how he found
out about the troopers or the cars,
but he came around the corner
shortly after the last one parked.
"What's going on?" he asked
me.
"Nothing," I said, and gave
him a curious stare.
"You mean all of these guys?
I'm having a bachelorette party
and these are really my dancers.
Why don't you?"
He shot out of there and we
laughed about it that Monday.
I found out later that he actu-
ally knew who they were and why
they were in Quincy. Like news-
paper people, you can't keep very
much from a sheriff if he really
wants to know.
I haven't run acrosstoo many
people as nosy as I am in my life-
time. I am proud to say that W.A.
Woodham was one of them.

finding Roads


By: Byron Spires


I had the pleasure of interview-
ing Guerrin Gardner this week, the
daughter of David and Noreen
Gardner. She is an actor pursuing a
career in something she loves, act-
ing.
I think that is awesome.
She is actually living what
started out as only a dream.
I like what she said about her
decision to pursue her career: She
didn't want to look back with
regret and say she wished she had
done what she is doing now.
There is a lot to be said about
regrets. Regrets are a different
bird, you know.
Regrets are not like mistakes or
miscues or miscalculations or mis-
understandings. They go a little
deeper than that.
Regrets are, I believe, a little
harder on you.
I have regrets in my life and I
am sure that you do also.
I made a decision based on the
same thought process that Guerrin
did about 15 years ago.
As I look back over the years
since that decision, it could be
argued that it may not have been
the best decision of my life. But I
can say that the series of events
that were set into place by that
decision are the reason I am sitting
here today writing this column.
There is no doubt in my mind
that decision brought me to this


point in my life. There might be a
few out there who might wish that
I had been smarter and made a dif-
ferent decision, but hey, what can
I say, it's Spires not Einstein.
Was it an easy road?
Of course not.
As a matter of fact it was a
very winding road, full of pitfalls
and sometimes almost insurmount-
able obstacles. To be honest, I'm
still following that same road
today.
Am I a hero, because I man-
aged to survive this far? No. Actu-
ally I'll have to give God credit,
there were several times I didn't


think I wouid make it. But, I did.
I didn't hate much choice.
there is no \%a\ I can or wouldd be
willing to go back the wa\ I came.
Besides it doesn't work that \a\.
'Time takes care of that issue for
you. You got to mo\e forward
don't )ou?
And no, I don't need an antide-
pressant.
It's just a reality check I'm
sharing with you after talking with
Guerrin and attending W.A. Wood-
ham's funeral this week. No one
is guaranteed tomorrow or good
health or prosperity or success.
Life is really what we make of
it.
And I'1 tell you one thing, I
don't regret the decision that
started this ball rolling. I would-
n't have missed it for the world.
Now I'm just curious about what
is around the next curve.
Oh, and by the way, go for it
Guerrin, we're all pulling for you.

dinner last week.


Friends of Library take a peek


"Between Two Rivers"


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

The Friends of the Gadsden
County Public Library held its
annual author's dinner last Thursday
evening at the Sawano Club in
Quincy. The evening featured mem-
bers of the Red Hills Writers Pro-
ject.
The Red Hills Writing Project is
patterned after the "Hub City Pro-
ject" of Spartanburg, SC. where
writers wanted to shared the rich
history of the region and endeavored
to save irreplaceable resources.
The book, "Between Two Rivers",


is actually contributions from 29
authors. "The book is intended to
give you a sense of the continuity of
the land. We use a lot of art and a lot
of maps," said Susan Cerulean, one
of the authors. She said the book is
self published and .hoped that Red
Hills is the first of many.
"Heart of the Earth is an organiza-
tion formed in Tallahassee by people
concerned about the preservation of
the wildlife and the natural
resources of the planet. This organi-
zation provided leadership and coor-
dination for the formation of the
Red Hills Writers Project which
brought together several dozen area


writers and naturalists," Cerulean
said.
"Between Two Rivers" is a collec-
tion of essays describing the geo-
physical, biological, historical and
social forces which have impacted
the area. Jim Cox, a wildlife biolo-
gist working with Tall Timbers
Research Station, read excepts from
his essay as did John Hall, retired
from the Nature Conservatory to
Protect Eco-systems.
The title of the book comes from
the authors' works systems between
the Apalachicola and Aucilla rivers.

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 .
Commission meetings to urge my .. ,
fellow commissioners to pave '
roads based on the largest popu- ,-
lation 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 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.

It's Time for a Change
It's time for a spiritual house cleaning. The world is obeying their mas-
ter. Satan is doing his job 100%. If we will obey God as sinners obey
Satan, our whole nation would change. 1st John 4:4 says greater is he
that is in you than he that is in the world. St. John 12:31 states when I
am lifted up from the earth I will draw all men unto me. If we are really
serious lifting Jesus up as we should, why does it seem like Satan is
getting worse? So we must strive to lift Jesus higher and higher. He will not lie. He is
able to draw the murderers, robbers, drug addicts, sinners in general, all have sinned
and come short of the glory of God. If God can change one sinner, he can change anoth-
er. Sin is just sin. It's time for a change. Men and women are dying only because of sin.
We need to keep our focus on Jesus. Christ is the answer. We need to have more faith.
How? Like the disciples. Luke 17:50 says Lord increase our faith. James said faith with-
out works is dead. God offers his children faith. Ephesians 6:16. We are to reach out and
take it. Faith never stays the same, as we need it, it is there for us. We can overcome
this world problem if we gain and release our faith. Pray for those in authority, they need
our prayers. They have authority, but it is limited. But Jesus has all power and authority
in heaven and earth. He can control any kind of weapon that destroys the life of men.
Sometimes we fail by looking at the situation as the disciples were looking at the wind
and waves, not realizing Jesus is on board. He still controls the wind and waves. We
must be sure he is still on board. The boat cannot sink with Jesus, because he is in it.
We must be sure we have him with us at all times. Lord increase our faith. It's time for
a change.
Humbly submitted, Florence Mims Bradwell

United Way of the Big Bend honors

community, announces campaign total


United Way of the Big Bend
honors community, volunteers,
announces campaign total at Cam-
paign Finale
Hundreds of community volun-
teers and leaders had the red carpet
rolled out for them and were hon-
ored at the United Way of the Big
Bend (UWBB) Campaign Finale
today at the Tallahassee-Leon
County Civic Center.
Cheers and applause erupted
from the crowd as the campaign
total of $6,156,485 was announced
at the end of the ceremony.
Ken Boutwell, 2004 UWBB
Campaign Chair, personally
thanked community volunteers and
contributors for their generosity and
tireless dedication during the past
campaign and for surpassing the
$6.1-million goal.
"As the chair, I want to person-
ally thank everyone for their hard
work and dedication," Boutwell
said. "With the four hurricanes at
the beginning of the campaign sea-
.son and the recent tsunami disaster,
this community stepped up to help
those victims but didn't forget about
local people in need. We still
reached our campaign goal, which
is simply amazing and a true testa-
ment to the people of the Big
Bend."
Today represents a culmination
'of energy, commitment and gen-
Serosity, Boutwell explained. This is
'truly one of the best places in the
nation to live. The people of this
community have stepped up time
and time again. They continually go
out of their way in ensuring that
United Way's certified agencies are
here for people in need yesterday,
today and tomorrow.
The 37 UWBB certified agen-
cies were delighted to hear that
UWBB surpassed its goal of $6.1
million a record for UWBB,
Boutwell said. The campaign total
is $146,185 more than was raised
last year and once again established
this local niteed VWa\ ,.; one of the
best in the nation. As usual, state
.employees were a key part of the
,success, having given $2,232,069
under the leadership of Commis-
:sioner Charles Bronson. The neigh-
'boring counties pulled together to
raise $541,488.
Highlights of awards and recog-
nitions throughout the program
included: Best New Employee
Campaign Florida Commerce
Credit Union, Most Improved Cam-
paign Capelouto, Most Creative
Campaign Local Government,


Best Employee Coordinator Col.

UWBB President Ken Arm-
strong, who has seen this United
Way more than double its size from
$3,003,000 in only nine years,
'emphasized the role played by the
award winners.
"We have 16 organizations in
the $50,000+ category, 14 in the
$25,000 to $50,000 and 45 in the
$10,000 to $25,000," Armstrong
said. "And that doesn't even count
the state agencies where giving fre-
quently reaches six figures."
Major gifts from individuals
continue to be a key element of the
UWBB's campaign growth, he said.
Eight years ago, there were 82
annual $1,000 givers. Today, the
announced total was more than
1,125.
Surpassing this community goal
was downright critical to UWBB's
37 certified agencies, Boutwell said.
It has enabled these agencies to con-
tinue to help the Big Bend commu-
nity. Seeing people get the help they
need really underscores what
United Way is accomplishing in the
Big Bend bringing neighbors
together to care for one another. No
one knows when they'll need help,
but supporting UWBB and its agen-
cies ensures that United Way will be
there today and tomorrow.
This is among the most success-
ful of the 1,400, independent United
Ways in America, Armstrong said.
In the past nine years, the average
United Way has grown about 30
percent, while UWBB has doubled.
In fact, UWBB ranks second in the
nation for medium-size United
Ways... that's simply incredible.
I think people realize now that
United Way belongs to them," Arm-
strong concluded. "We are the only
major comprehensive, human-care
charity that actually is incorporated
and governed locally, with the dol-
lars staying right here. That makes
them feel responsible for our
progress, since we are accountable
to them for community progress in
the hometown."

TCC Speech and

Debate successfully

defends national title

Last week, the Tallahassee Com-
munity College Speech and Debate
Team accomplished what no other
community college has done -
string together three consecutive
National Championships in Overall
Sweepstakes in Limited Entries
Division at the Phi Rho Pi National
Tournament.
The competition concluded Sat-
urday, April 16 in Philadelphia, and
the TCC squad has proved once
again that it is one of the most
potent programs in the country. Said
triple award winner Krystof Kage,
"I think we have so much success
because we blend the performance
styles from the midwest and Cali-
fornia schools in a pretty unique
way. We get the best of both
worlds."
Jesse Ehman summarized the
team's philosophy and approach,
"We really like to win, don't get me
wrong, but we try to focus on the
process of the activity, not the prod-
uct. We can only control how well
we perform, not how the judges
rank us."
The team edged out perennially-
strong Glendale Community Col-
lege (AZ), Solano Community Col-
lege (CA), and Illinois Central Col-.
lege. "I'm always so proud of how
our students step up to this chal-
lenge each year," said John Schultz,
Director of Theatre and Forensics,
"I believe we've got a well-oiled
machine running on our campus
when we can capture this title dur-
ing a rebuilding year. It is a testa-
ment to widespread support from
faculty, staff, administration, and
students it takes a real collabora-
tive effort to make this program so
notable."
The team advanced 4 of 5 mem-
bers to elimination rounds of com-
petition. Teresa Ciappetta and Kage
received a silver award in Duo
Interpretation; Ciappetta received
bronze awards in Prose Interpreta-
tion and in Speaking to Entertain
while Kage also garnered bronze for
Dramatic Interpretation and Speak-
ing to Entertain. Ehman and Alex
Brown also added to the trophy
count by winning bronze awards in
Program Oral Interpretation and
Prose Interpretation, respectively.
Amanda Burgess also posted strong
performances in Poetry Interpreta-
tion and Speaking to Entertain, nar-
rowly missing the elimination
rounds.
The Phi Rho Pi Championship
effort caps a year where the Talla-
hassee Community College Team
won numerous individual and team
titles including the Florida Intercol-
legiate Forensics Association
Sweepstakes Championship for
both two and four year colleges.

A Louisiana teenager was killed in
a Gadsden County car crash early
Saturday morning, according to a
report released by the Florida High-

Kelly Love, 18, was a passenger
in a sport utility vehicle driven by
another teenager on Interstate 10.
The driver reportedly fell asleep
while driving shortly after 1 a.m.
and crossed into the median.
She then swerved back across the
road. The SUV begin spinning and
slammed into at least two trees,
killing Love.
Both teens were from Slidell, LA.

Murder trial

Continued from Page 1

Willie Joe Stanford's murder will be
tried next month.
Lisa Ammons told the jury how
events started on the day that Stan-
ford was killed, Oct. 22, 2003. She
said she and a friend, Les Massey,
has been riding around in the
Greensboro area all morning drink-
ing beer and using drugs. Sometime
during the day Yolanda Nessmith
joined the two and all of them went
to Stanford's home on Juniper
Road.
Ammons described Stanford as a
very good friend that she had
known for three years. She said she
often visited his home and the two
"were very good friends." She said
Stanford, who was legally blind,
could identify objects in a very
bright light, but often needed help
with finding everyday objects such
as his hat and shoes. "He was on
disability," Ammons said.
Events that transpired on the day
Stanford was killed became confus-
ing as the two main witnesses, Am-
mons and Nessmith, had trouble re-
calling exactly who did what and
what order that day and night. Am-
mons, however, was adamant that
the testimony she gave last week
was what really happened. Al-
though she said she was scared and
upset, she was sure she saw Solis
beat Stanford repeatedly about the
face and head with a shotgun.
She said the trouble began when
Solis came to Stanford's house a


Woodham

Continued from Page 1

Then one day I was walking along
and he pulled up and asked me if I
wanted a ride, I said yeah and
jumped in. I voted for him and
we've been friends ever since," re-
called Charles McClellan. He
praised Woodham's sense of com-
munity. McClellan recalled how he
and Woodham would collect the
coin cards from the schools after the
March of Dimes drive. "You should
have seen us down on the floor
counting all of those dimes year af-
ter year. Then he'd make us go back
through the cards to make sure we
didn't leave a dime in them. He was"
an institution, we won't see another
like him in our lifetime."
Woodham, known to enjoy a good
chew of tobacco, often encouraged
other to try. "I remember one time I
was riding with W.A. and the Sena-
tor (Pat Thomas) down to Monticel-
lo and he kept after me to try tobac-
co. I told him no all the way there
and most of the way back, but he
wore me down and I tried it, didn't
like it and he got a kick out of see-
ing me trying to get rid of that stuff
in a moving car. He was a good
guy," said Steve Beasley of Talla-
hassee.
Alvin Pickels was perhaps closer
to Woodham than most. He first met
W.A. when he was a trooper in
Gadsden County. "I was with Quin-
cy Public Safety when the police
and fire departments were together
and we had gotten to be good
friends. When he applied for the ap-
pointment as sheriff and when he
got it he asked if I would come on
board as his chief deputy," he said.
What stands out most to Pickels was
his charitable nature. "Whatever
charitable organization came by, as
long as it was for a good cause, he
gave. He was so big hearted and he
always looked for the best in peo-
ple. He went out of his way to help.
Sometimes people needed a job and
we didn't have any money in the
budget, but he'd say 'we have to
find it'." Pickels said Woodham had
a way of making everybody feel he
was their close friend. He genuinely
cared about people. Don't get me
wrong we didn't agree on every-
thing, but we worked it out. He was
the best friend I'll ever have," he
said.
He loved hunting and fishing. His
favorite fishing hole was a pond
down on Joyceland Road where he


liked to catch bream and bass. He
was known for giving away as
many fish as he caught. He would
often ride around with the fish iced
down and stop by someone's house
to offer them part of the fresh catch.
Carol Jean Galvin of Havana said
she worked in every Woodham
campaign. "I've been with him for
30 years. I don't care who was run-
ning, I worked in his campaign. He
was a people person. He never
raised his voice. Even after he re-

second time. "He got out of his car,
hit her (Nessmith) and she fell to
the ground. He asked him to leave
several time. He went inside and got
the gun and he asked him 'what you
gonna do you blind SOB'. He tried
to wrestle the gun away from Willie
Joe but he couldn't take the gun and
the gun went off," Ammons said.
Nessmith testified that she doesn't
remember the struggle over the gun
because she "must have blacked out
for a few seconds."
She was sure though that when
she woke up she and Ammons ran
around the back of the trailer after
the shot was fired. Nessmith ran to
the neighbor's house to get help
while Ammons said she tried to stop
Solis and two others from killing
Stanford. "He (Solis) was beating
him with the gun and all three were
stomping him in the head, Jerry
(Shiver) tried to get them to stop but
they threw him down and did the
same thing to him," she said.
She said the men were hollering
and making fun yells as they beat
Stanford and critically injured Shiv-
er. Solis' attorney, Armondo Garcia,
questioned Ammons about discrep-
ancies in her testimony at the trial
and information she gave under
sworn deposition.
She said she didn't remember mak-
ing a statement that she didn't know
who the other two men were.
Nessmith testified that Solis was
in a rage and that she left the scene
with him because she was afraid.
She was in the car with Solis when
he drove to the Apalachicola River
and threw the gun in. In fact, it was
Nessmith who took authorities to
the exact spot and they were able to
retrieve the weapon.
Solis will be sentenced on May 4
at 1:30 p.m. After the verdict was
read, Shiver said he hoped Solis
would get life in prison. That's not
likely according to Asst. State At-
torney Frank Allman. "He will
probably get somewhere around 25
or 26 years," he said.


The


Cold Case

Continued from Page 1

in Midway. Her body was about 10
feet off the mowed shoulder of the
road. Her throat had been slit with
a sharp object. Bramlett was last
seen on May 9, reported missing on
May 11, and her remains found on
May 14, 1990. She had left her
home, a house behind what was
then Club 40 in Midway, about
8:30 p.m. She lived in Midway
with her husband and five children.
Authorities and her family be-
lieve the crime was drug related.
"She was a good person when she
was sober. She had some difficul-
ties in her life with drugs and alco-
hol. When she came to Midway,
she fell in with the wrong crowd,"
said her mother, Bertha Johnson.
The death and unsolved murder of
her daughter she said "has been
eating me alive for the past 15
years."
Johnson and Smith both believe
that the answer to Bramlett's mur-
der lies in a circle of people she as-
sociated with who were also in-
volved with the sale and use of
drugs.
Smith says he's collecting evi-
dence and the circle of people who
could have killed Bramlett is get-
ting smaller and smaller. "I'm ques-
tioning people in Midway and
some of them are pointing the fin-
ger. It is going to take some work
on our part but this case is a part of
me now. "There isn't a night that
goes by that I don't study, this case
before I go to sleep," he said. He
talks to Bramlett's mother daily.

Tobacco


Program (also called "Tobacco Buyout").





You've heard about it.


Now be a part of it.



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


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

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

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


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

at your local USDA Service Center.

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


Farm Service Agency


USDA is an equal opportunity provider and employer


now. The youngest is 18 and the
oldest is 25. That doesn't ease the
pain for family members, however.
"They have had to grow up without
knowing their mother and what a
special person she was to us all.
My children have had to grow up


not knowing their aunt," West said.
While the family is large, West said
that Molly Sue is especially missed.
The family chain has been broken
for the past 15 years. "It's affected
me something terrible," Johnson
said.


A $5,000 reward has been posted
for information leading to the arrest
and conviction in the death of
Bramlett. If you have information,
call Inv. Larry Smith at the Gads-
den County Sheriff's Office at 875-:

Writing it up: Munroe juniors study American authors

The juniors at Robert F. Munroe Day School turned in their term paper projects on Monday, April 11.
Each student chose an American author to research. The project required an analysis of works written by
the author, a display of biographical and historical events in the life of the author, and a PowerPoint presen-
tation to advertise one of the books by the author. Following the turn-in, Patsy Willis, Sissy Clark, and Den-
syl Fletcher treated the class and teachers to a luncheon. Posing with their displays are the class members
Megan Rowan, Justin Smith, Andy Jordan, Wil Whiddon, Bee Jay Philmore, Mandy Clark, Joseph Hack-
ney, Jessica Joyner, Sallie Willie, Ammie Fletcher, Steve Phillips, and Matthew Eldridge. The project will be
on display for the May Day and Grandparents Day activities at the school during the first week of May.


A 'Smart' keyboard


These students are standing in line for a turn to beam data into a waiting computer. The students in Mrs.
Jones' language arts class are working on the 23 writing GLEs. Writing is covered on GLE #37 to #60. This
class typed a five-paragraph essay on the Alpha Smart, a little computer keyboard that will allow an entire
class to do data processing during a regular classroom setting. The Alpha Smart is state of the art technol-
ogy that allows spellcheck and other editing processes to be accomplished before the data is beamed to either
a printer or to a computer. The Alpha Smart will save the data up to eight files at a time until the student
is ready to discard. It will even allow students to type various mathematical symbols. The students are able
to master writing GLEs and have fun with the little gadget.

Dear Gadsden, Liberty & Calhoun
County Residents,
Two years ago I obtained my Florida
Dealer's License due to the frustration of
shopping for a used car. The following three
things made car shopping a big headache
for me:
*Haggling for the best price
*Having to come up with $2000 to $3000
for a down payment, taxes, title and tag


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


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

TENNIS
:The Munroe tennis team lost a rare first spot
game despite winning as a team 6-1 over district
opponent John Paul II last week.
Junior Mandy Clark, the number one player on
the varsity team since sixth grade, lost to JP2's
Erin Conroy 6-3, 6-0. The rest of the girls won
in order #2 Meg Summerford, #3 Anna Dooner,
#4 Jessica Joyner, #5 Elizabeth Bridges.
The team took their 9-2 overall and 7-1 district
records to the district tournament this week at
Maclay. Top finishers in team and individuals
will play next week at FSU 's Scott Speicher Ten-
nis Center.


SOFTBALL
The Munroe Lady Cats defeated Aucilla Chris-
tian in a key District 3A matchup Friday night at
Munroe. The inspired softball team gave Aucilla
their first Class A loss as well as being the first
district team to even score a run on Aucilla. The
Lady Cats won 6-2 behind the hitting of Crystal
Wade and the consistent pitching pitching of Sal-
lie Willis, Wade went 2 for 4 with a double and
three RBIs and Willis had four strikeouts and did-
n't allow a walk for Munroe. This game was the
second game in a row that Willis has not issued a
walk.
On Monday night the team lost at Madison
County 13-4. Willis took the loss on the mound
for the Lady Cats. Danielle Fagg was 2 for 3
including a line drive off the left field fence.
Freshman Mallorie McKinnon had three hits and
Willis one.
Munroe bounced back Tuesday holding on to a
9-8 win over Maclay.


The Lady cats had built aan 8-3 lead over
Maclay entering the 6th inning when the Lady
Maraduers rallied to tie the game with a 5 spot.
Kaitlyn Rentz then single in the winning run in
the bottom of the 6th and Willis who came on in
relief in the top of the 6th picked up her 5th win
of the year. Wade had helped Munroe build their
lead with a triple earlier in the contest. The Lady
cats record is even at 7-7 as they head into the end
of the season. They met Maclay in their final reg-
ular season game Wednesday and will play Carra-
belle in the District 3-A tournament in Aucilla
next Tuesday.
Also in softball Liberty County out hit West
Gadsden 12-2 and defeated them 12-1 on Thurs-
day. Candace Toussaint took the loss for the
Lady Panthers who came back to defeat Malone
17-0 on Tuesday. Toussaint pitched a 1-hitter and
lifted her record to 9-4 with the win. Trudy Bat-
tles had a big day at the plate going 4 for 4 with a
triple and 3 rbi's.

Gadsden County Times April 21, 2005 3B


Seminole Ramlins

By Jack Wingate

April 17, 2005
On the 15th of this month, me and Miss Joyce found out we have too
much of the month left at the end of our money. Paying the gov-mint
money is like pourin whiskey down a drain, I don't think they know what
to do with it, paying anybody to be lazy is wrong.
There was a group of Kings having a birthday party this past Saterday
and I was glad to be invited. Me and Brother Bennie has decided, since
we retired, we are 2 weeks, behind on most everything and we don't give
a dang about it.
Folks, this is a historic day (Sunday). Jim Merritt and son William
Merritt butted heads in the Tri-States and bless you by doggies, William,
(who is an Eagle Scout) took 20.44 lbs. of fish and Big Fish of the tourne-
ment, to Jim Merritts 15.72 lbs. and 4.68 lbs. Big Fish. That is a father
and son fishing against each other. The most weight however, went to
Reggie Calhoun, who's daughter, Britney was sick in bed with the flu.
Sorry Britney; git well.
One of the big stories of the day Sunday, was Carl Keim of Bass Island
Campground here at Wingates, who landed a limit of Specks and a 9 lb.
Bass on Jigs and 6 lb. Test Line.
Buddy Bethea and Edward Giddons of Bay Springs, FL took home 4
limits of Specks and 4 Bass on Speck Jigs. They come every month on
the building (waxing) moon, load up every time they come.
Benny Brookins and company loaded up on Bream and Crackers. They
dd it near every time they come. They say luck and I say skill.
Mr. and Mrs. Barnes of Kentucky shure do know how to fish for
Specks. We took a pic of them with 34 nice live Specks on the dock
Saturday. They try to come every 2 weeks in the none gnat season. They
do good.
3 Bass clubs fished out over the weekend Clearwater of Lawrenceville
that was won by Bartwell and Marshell with 24.10 lbs. Their Big Fish
was 5.31 lbs. The Tri-States and the McClenny Bass Clubs fished out of
Wingates this weekend too, but no weights were given.


And the winners are...
B flight winnsk in the Quincy Kiwanis Club's annual tournament were Arthur Mickens and Carlos iglesias.
A flight winners were Don Pumphrey Jr. and Freddie Mangen.

\ears earlier. \\.A. Woodham had
mo ed here. He worked as a juvenile
counselor and \\as one of the first peo-
ple I met. Believe it or not he played
softball on Crouch's men's team.
Some of his teammates if I recall light,
,%ere Grnelle Bishop. Bill Tappan, Bill
Sumrmeiford. Benny Peacock. and
Da\ id Chity.
W.A. had gone to Chipola and
though I had never met him before
conung to Quinct w\e found we had a
lot of acquaintances in common, he
knewx a lot of the same West Florida
folks I kne\\.
A.s the years passed \ve had others
things in common such as being mem-
bers of the Rotary Club and watching


our children grow\ up as friends.
In 1971 in a period of racial unrest,
then Go\ ernor Rubin As.kew appointed
W\.A. Sheriff, after then Sheriff. Robert
Martin died.
I doubt the Governoi or W.A.
thought it would be an almost lifetime
appointment.
33 years as a Sheriff, that's a w hole
generation of folks that never knew\
an thing but W.A. Woodham is oui
Sheriff, and no doubt that was the
secret to his longevity, he %%as our
Sheriff.
The stories \ou read are true, his
door \\as opened. he knew everybody,
knew how to handle them. And that
xx as quite remarkable for someone w ho


w wasn't a local boy.
W.A. called me Jose. I called him
Willie. don't ask me why. we just
applied that moniker to each other. He
did that with other people, a smart way
to be personal. But he was really the
Sheriff and for that I respected him as I
respected him for his friendship.
I know\ he looked forward to retire-
ment. to grand kids and fishing. And I
know those girl's of his Amy Jo. Lau-
tie. and Emily are going to long for
more days with him.
Somewhere they may be a place for
Sheriff's that have past on. He will be
welcomed there with open arms,
because. if ever there was a Sheriff.
W. A. Woodham was one.

On April 15th around 12 noon the American Cancer Society signed a complaint
against County Commissioner District 4 and school teacher Brenda A. Holt. Gadsden
County Sheriff Morris Young issued a warrant and had his deputies Sharicka Henry
and Frank Fields arrest Brenda A. Holt.
Upon entering the campus of West Gadsden High School the officers found the
suspect commissioner/teacher Holt in the process of trying to get her bail of $100.00
for the American Cancer Society from individuals on campus during lunch.
Sad to say the commissioner/teacher was not in possession of the $100.00
therefore the sheriffs officer Frank Fields read Commissioner Holt her rights.
Immediately following the reading of her Miranda Rights the commissioner/teacher

under the directions of her students tried to make a run for it but as with most criminals
she was over taken, handcuffed, and arrested by the fine officers from the sheriff's
department.
As the students from West Gadsden High bid Miss Holt good bye they vowed
to raise the $100.00 bail for Miss Holt's release as long as the officers did not let her
out before the end of the school day.
Travis Hinson a student at West Gadsden High School stated, "I will give you
money to keep her in jail so we will not have to take algebra".
Upon their arrival to the Sheriff's Office, West Gadsden High School students
Ron Bums' and Jonnie Holt found Brenda A. Holt asking every passer-by for a dona-
tion to the American Cancer Society. The students, faculty, staff, and members of the
sheriff's department raised $182.00 to bail Commissioner Holt out of jail.
"I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for their donations. I
would especially like to thank all of the students at West Gadsden High School for all
of their hard work and donations."
County Commissioner and West Gadsden County High School teacher
Brenda A. Holt.

8B Gadsden County Times April 21, 2005


.Woodham,


By ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
Almost everybody has a W.A. Woodham story.
The man who was the highest ranking law enforce-
ment officer in the county for the past 33 years died
last week at St. Luke's Hospital/Mayo Clinic in
Jacksonville. He was awaiting a liver transplant and
had developed heart complications. His family was
at his side.
Sunday afternoon at the W.A. Woodham Justice
Center on West Jefferson Street more than 1,000
people came to pay their respects to the family and
the man. Some stood in line for over an hour to tell
his wife, Karen, his three daughters (by an earlier
marriage) and other family members how the felt
about the sheriff. Most people simply referred to
him as "W.A." Only a few knew he was William
Albert because ever since he was a child he was
called "W.A."
Woodham was one of the youngest sheriff's ever
to serve in Florida at age 29. When he retired last
year, he was Dean of the Florida Sheriff's having
been elected eight consecutive times by the voters
of Gadsden County and was the longest serving
sheriff in the state with 33 years. Woodham was
appointed sheriff of Gadsden County after Robert
Martin died of a heart attack in April 1971. Prior to
that he served as a Florida State Highway Patrol
officer for one year and one year as a juvenile coun-
selor.
"I first meet W.A. 44 years ago at Chipola Junior
College. I had seen his name painted in the middle
of the street. It said 'Vote for W.A. Woodham SGA
President'. Then one day I was walking along and
he pulled up and asked me if I wanted a ride, I said
yeah and jumped in. I voted for him and we've been
friends ever since," recalled Charles McClellan. He
praised Woodham's sense of community. McClellan
recalled how he and Woodham would collect the
coin cards from the schools after the March of
Dimes drive. "You should have seen us down on the
floor counting all of those dimes year after year.
Then he'd make us go back through the cards to
make sure we didn't leave a dime in them. He was
an institution, we won't see another like him in our
lifetime."
Woodham, known to enjoy a good chew of
tobacco, often encouraged other to try. "I remember
one time I was riding with W.A. and the Senator
(Pat Thomas) down to Monticello and he kept after
me to try tobacco. I told him no all the way there
and most of the way back, but he wore me down
and I tried it, didn't like it and he got a kick out of
seeing me trying to get rid of that stuff in a moving
car. He was a good guy," said Steve Beasley of Tal-
lahassee.
Alvin Pickels was perhaps closer to Woodham
than most. He first met W.A. when he was a trooper
in Gadsden County. "I was with Quincy Public
Safety when the police and fire departments were
together and we had gotten to be good friends.
When he applied for the appointment as sheriff and
when he got it he asked if I would come on board as
his chief deputy," he said. What stands out most to
Pickels was his charitable nature. "Whatever chari-
table organization came by, as long as it was for a
good cause, he gave. He was so big hearted and he
always looked for the best in people. He went out of
his way to help. Sometimes people needed a job and
we didn't have any money in the budget, but he'd
say 'we have to find it'." Pickels said Woodham had
a way of making everybody feel he was their close
friend. He genuinely cared about people. Don't get
me wrong we didn't agree on everything, but we
worked it out. He was the best friend I'll ever
have," he said.
SHe loved hunting and fishing. His favorite fishing
hole was a pond down on Joyceland Road where he
liked to catch bream and bass. He was known for
giving away as many fish as he caught. He would
often ride around with the fish iced down and stop
by someone's house to offer them part of the fresh
catch.
SCarol Jean Galvin of Havana said she worked in
every Woodham campaign. "I've been with him for
30 years. I don't care who was running, I worked in
liis campaign. He was a people person. He never
raised his voice. Even after he retired he came by
my house and I had a hornets nest. He said he was
going to shoot it down. I told him not to because
neither one of use could run fast enough to get out
of the way of swarming hornets. I'm going to miss
my buddy," she said. An avid fisher, Galvin said she
often went to the Woodham home and fished in a
nearby pond.
Cathy Rogers worked in the sheriff's office for 24
years. "He was unpredictable. He kept you on your
toes," she said.
\ Shirley Griffiss went to work at the sheriff's
office in 1973 and for the seven years leading up to
his retirement she was his secretary. "He was a fan-
tastic boss. I loved working for him. He would lis-
ten to people when they came in. He always had an
open door, unless the person wanted privacy," she
said.
There was a playful side to W.A., according to
former property appraiser and friend George Hamil-
ton. "He like to start fires. Whereever he was he
always wanted to get a fire started. Once we were
getting ready to go New Orleans and he stopped by.
We had a pile of leaves on the ground and he just


started striking matches and throwing them at those
leaves. I told him to stop and he just wouldn't. Well,
the leaves caught on fire and we were three hours
late leaving...I was so mad at him," he said.
Last Wednesday, the Hamilton's went to Jack-
sonville to visit their friend. They had no idea, they
said, that he would go so quickly.

Woodham looks back over career


Editor's note: The following story
reflects on the career of W.A. Wood-
ham at his retirement announcement.
Staff Writer Byron Spires interviewed
Woodham and wrote the following
story last April.
After 33 years the sheriff is calling it
quits
For some it would be the short stretch
left that they would be thinking of as they
passed the threshold of 60 years headed
for the promised land of retirement. For
Gadsden County Sheriff W.A. Woodham,
it was only the turning of another page in
the book of his life.
Woodham did not start out his career in
law enforcement to become the high sher-
iff of Gadsden County.
Raised on a farm in southern Alabama,
Woodham worked his way through
Florida State University. After graduation
he took a position with the Florida High-
way patrol as a trooper. He was assigned


decades.
Then sheriff Robert Martin was caught
up in the melee of rioters and his car was
overturned. Martin suffered a heart attack
and died a few months later.
On April 15, 1971, Democratic Gover-
nor Ruben Askew appointed Woodham to
fill Martin's remaining term.
When Woodham was the new sheriff on
the block, his pay was about $11,000 a
year. Today, the sheriff's salary is
$102,000 a year which like all county
constitutional officers is mandated by the
state legislature and based on each
county's population.
Woodham took over the sheriff's office
which had seven deputies at the time.
Woodham added Alvin Pickles shortly
after he was appointed.
"I was out nearly every night working
with the deputies. Many nights, I would
be out at 3 a.m. and have to be back at the
office at 8 a.m. to meet with someone that


Julius Ceasor McGriff.McGriff was con-
victed of the murder of a local woman
Kathy Higdon in 1987. The Higdon mur-
der was the topic of a recent History
Channel program about the use of foren-
sic evidence in a murder trial.
"We had a lot of good help from the
FDLE, Quincy P.D., and especially a lot
of community support," Woodham said. .
Concerning the low points Woodham
said, "I guess it would be having
unsolved murders. There are several that
we have not been able to solve. We just
could not get enough evidence to get a
conviction."
Being a sheriff over such a long time
was been without its intense moments,
some of which Woodham was somewhat
reluctant to talk about.
One happened back in the late 70s dur-
ing an incident that occurred at Crouch's
Drug Store on the courthouse square.

was having problems," Woodham said.
Unlike the early days of hands-on law
enforcement, Woodham's job was prima-
rily administrative. He was responsible
for 125 employees, a jail with a popula-
tion that exceeded 200, and a bombard-
ment of legal issues that he faced daily.
During his career Woodham said he had
seen many ups and downs.
On the up side he listed the capture of


legs wrapped
around the
woman in a death grip.
Woodham, who happened to be passing
by, stopped to give assistance to the offi-
cers that were already on the scene. One
QPD officer was holding the man at bay
with a shotgun when Woodham
approached the suspect, who was holding
a gun to the woman's head.
While talking to the man Woodham dis-
tracted him and was able to grab the gun


placing his hand in the way of the gun's
hammer. When he grabbed the gun, the
suspect pulled the trigger, but because of
Woodham's hand it did not fire.
The man was taken into custody and
both the woman and the officer who had
been shot survived the ordeal.
"The next day I happened to look and a
red streak was inching its way up my arm.
It turned out that I had lead poisoning
from the hammer," Woodham said.
Another instance involved Carl Clausen
who shot and killed his wife.
One of the deputies who responded to
the incident, Levon Jackson, was
wounded by Clausen who had hidden in
the woods next his home. The deputy
managed to escape under a barrage of fire
and ended up in the ditch by his car across
the road from the Clausen's home.
Clausen who had an extensive military
background was well armed with an
assault rifle and plenty of ammunition.
He hid in the woods and was able to keep
the authorities at bay with a continued
bombardment of harassing fire.
Woodham, who knew that Jackson was
hurt badly, drove his vehicle between
where he thought Clausen was and Jack-
son and got him into his vehicle.
"I just did what needed to be done,"
Woodham remembered about the experi-
ence.
Jackson was rushed to the hospital
where he eventually recovered from his
wounds. He continues to work as a sher-
iff's deputy.
Over the years Woodham lost two
deputies to tragic accidents.
"Deputy Gary Vickers was responding
to a call to assist another deputy when he
tried to avoid a car that had pulled out in
front of him, and hit a tree and was killed.
He was a good deputy. I thought a lot of
him and he was well thought of by people
in this community," Woodham said.
Another deputy, investigator Joel Broome
was also killed in an automobile accident.
S .nmg in the corner of his office was a
large chest filled with plaques and
awards. They are an accumulation of
years of experience and include dozens of
periodicals and newspaper articles writ-
ten over the years from around the state.
On his wall were dozens of plaques and
memorabilia.
"I miss him. He was the quintessential
politician and I learned a lot from him. He
knew that you did not just politic once
every four years. You had to do it every
day. It was our weekly tasks that kept me
going, Woodham said.
One accolade that Woodham could not
hide was his work with the Florida Sher-
iffs' Boys and Girls Ranch.
Woodham was past president and chair-
man of the board for the association, and
board member.
About leaving the office of sheriff of
Gadsden County after such a long time
Woodham said, "It has been a part of my
life for so long, I'm sure I'm going to
miss it."
Woodham officially retired from a 33-
year career as sheriff on November 17,
2004, but not before he attempted one
more political outing.
After eight campaigns he threw his hat
into the ring for county commissioner in
District One, which was unsuccessful.
"I guess things just work out like they
are supposed to sometimes," Woodham
said.
At his funeral he was declared 10-87,
out of service, off duty. A rightful conclu-
sion to a life spent in law enforcement.
