James: Step up teacher


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

SSchool Superintendent Reginald James
told the board Tuesday night that if he is
going to recruit quality teachers on a level
playing fields with other counties, he will
need their help.
James asked the, Board to allow him to
offer teachers temporary contracts on the
spot when the county's recruitment team
goes out hunting teachers. "Other counties
are doing it," he said.
James said that Gadsden County is at a
decided disadvantage when it comes to
recruiting. "We are passing out literature and
they're (other counties) are passing out con-


tracts," he said.
Board member Eric Hinson used a football
analogy in agreeing with James. ""The best
players are signed in February. If you wait
around until August all of the good players
are gone and you're left with what nobody
else wants," he said.
"We need fifty teachers. Some districts
need thousands," James said.
Issac Simmons didn't warm up to the idea
of handing out temporary contracts. "I'd like
for the superintendent to make the final
decision (on new hires). It's not that I don't
trust the principals. But there may be some '
favoritism, friendships and nepotism in
there. I think it should be the sole responsi-
bility of the superintendent. That way he is

STwo dead



I in murder,


'suicide

by ALICE DU POINT
Times Editor
Jeff Jackson is really the only person who
ican tell why events turned out the way they
did last Wednesday afternoon at 1001 Colo-
nial Drive in Havana, and he's dead.
According to a report released by the
Gadsden County Sheriff's Office, Jackson,
32, and 53-year-old Charlie Boney had been
together most of the day along with Linda
Button, 41.
This is what happened as stated in the
S report. When deputies arrived at the Colo-
nial Drive address they found Button, cov-
ered with blood and bleeding from the back,
of the head. She kept repeating, "I think
Charlie is dead, I think Charlie is dead."
When she was calm she told deputies that
Jeff had beaten Charlie with a shotgun and
hit her in the back of the head.
I' Button said Mary and Jeff Jackson came
to 554 Green Oaks Road earlier in the say
and the four walked back to the Colonial
Drive address where they began drinking.
"Jeff jumped up, grabbed a shotgun and
I began beating Charlie with it," the report
stated. It was then that Button said she
ll leaned over Boney. to see if he was alright
and Jackson struck her in the head twice.
'v' I I Jackson's mother allegedly told deputies
that she pulled up to the house about 4 p.m..
and saw Boney lying in a pool of blood. Her
n S son then put a gun to his head. She was
tigating the pleading with him to put the gun down
when he shot and killed himself.
The case is closed.

held responsible," he said.
"I like the idea. I think we have to do that,
we've got to have the best teachers," said
Judge Helms, Board chairman, Other con-
cerns about the temporary contract surfaced
when Roger Milton asked about the legality
of such a contract. James and Helms assured
him that the board's attorney would approve
of any contracts and that prospective hires
will be required to meet the same standards
as permanent teachers.
In an unrelated matter, James said he wants
students to wear uniforms. "I want to pilot
the idea in the elementary schools." He has
already talked with the Parent Teacher Orga-
nization (PTO) and the School Advisory
Council at Chattahoochee Elementary


School and said they are receptive to the
idea.
"Research has shown that schools where
students wear uniforms have fewer disci-
pline problems and scores are higher,"
James said.
"That's our problem,, discipline and low
test scores. There are some things we need
to do. We will run into snags. There maybe
some problems. They (parents) will say they
can't afford uniforms but I say they can
afford uniforms better than they can afford
some of the brand names their children are
asking them to buy," Helms said.
A meeting on the school uniform proposal
will be held today, Thursday, April 28, in the
Board meeting room.

Heggie Graham and nis mother Saran uranam
March of Dimes has special
meaning for a local mother


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor


Sarah Graham knows all about
the March of Dimes. She gives the
organization credit for helping save
the life of her son, Reggie.
Graham remembered back 15
years ago when Reggie was born.
"He came early, at 26 weeks. They
put me in the hospital to try to delay
the delivery but it didn't work," she
said.
'Weighing in at just one and one-
half pounds Reggie came into the
world. He had all of his parts and
was nearly fully developed, all
except one critical area. His lungs
were not fully developed. Doctors
gave Graham little hope for her
son's survival. He was three days
old before they even allowed her to
give him a name. The doctors told
her that Reggie would not live and
if he managed to hang on he would
be a slow. learner. "They said he
would not be like other children,"
Giaham said.
SShe respected their opifiions but
shb never gave up on her child.
Even through the hard times. And
the, iard,li;ne~As ae,for three .ears.
"H.e,\ ma,ili the neonatal c-are.unit at


Tallahassee Memorial Hospital for
three months before we could bring
him home," she said.
But going home was only the
beginning of the struggle for Reggie
and the family. For the next three
years he was admitted to the hospi-
tal every month for between 5 and 8
days. "In all he had 11 surgeries,
pneumonia twice and wore a tra-
chea tube for an entire year," she
said.
Fast forward 15 years. Tuesday
night, the boy who was a March of
Dimes Youth Ambassador in 1993
was late getting home because he
had a baseball game. The handsome
teenager is a pitcher, catcher and
plays the outfield on his high school
team. He's also on the basketball
team at Tallavana Christian School,
where he is in tenth grade. And the
boy who was supposed to be a slow
learner isn't slow at all. His lungs
are fully developed and he has no
problems, according to his mother.
"I want people to know that when
they give to the March of Dimes it
supports research, helps fund the
neonatal unit and provides medi-
cines that help the babies develop
strong bodies. When people give,
,. they are saving lives," Graham said.

Authorities need help finding teens


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

Gadsden County authorities are
looking for a missing 16-year-old
Havana girl. Whitley Johnson,
who recently moved to her
father's Selman Road home, was
last seen around midnight. Jimmy
Johnson reported his daughter
missing and told authorities that
he recently gained custody of his
daughter who lived in North Car-
olina. According to a report on file
with the Gadsden County Sher-
iff's Office, Whitley may be try-
ing to reach her boyfriend, Cedric
Greene, who lives in Kinston, NC.
Whitley is described as 5-feet-six-
,inches tall, 110 pounds, light
brown complexion with a curly
red weave in her hair.
Authorities are also looking for
16-year-old Chelsea Anne Men-


Whitley Johnson

chise of Havana. She was last seen
around 2 a.m. on April 12 of this
year. She is described as a white
female five-feet-three-inches tall,
100 pounds, with brown shoulder
length hair. She is believed to be


Chelsea Anne Menchise

boyfriend, Scott Edward Andrewsi
The couple may be in Andrews'

Anyone with information off
either of the girls is asked to call
the Gadsden County Sheriff's-
office at 627-9233. ,

Times Editor

Hundreds of people are
expected to pick 'em up and put
'em down for the March of Dimes
this Saturday morning. The place to
be is on the Courthouse Square for
the start of WalkAmerica, a major
fund raiser for the national organi-
zations that collects money for
research to aid in the fight against
birth defects. The walk begins at 9
a .m. but registration, warm-up, and
team photos will begin at 8 a.m.
School Superintendent Reginald
James is the honorary chairman.
The thehie this year is "Prema-
ture Babies Need Hope, Love and
You," said committee member
Michael O'Halloran. The goal is to
raise $55,000. The money will be
used to help children like this
year's youth ambassadors, Travis
"TJ" Burs and Brandon Thomas.
Both boys were born premature,


each about two months early.
"Doctors said he wasn't going to
make it. I looked down at him and
said you're going to make it, you're
going to make it," said Travis
Burns, Sr. Little "TJ" had heart
surgery just one day after his birth.
LaShonda Baker, Brandon's
mother, said at one point in his life
she thought all hope. was gone for
saving her child. "Now," she said,
"he is my reason for living."
Approximately 40 teams are
expected to participate including
Engelhard, Envision Credit Union
and most of the schools.
While the two youth ambassa-
dors may be now on the right path,'
prematurity in babies is a big prob-
lem. More than 467,000 babies are
born each year. Many are so small
they can almost fit into the palm of
an adult hand. Almost half of the
premature births happen for
.unknown reasons. That is why the
support of the community is


needed.
Unfortunately, Gadsden County
has more than its share of prema-
ture babies and babies born with
birth defects. It is important for the
county to support WalkAmerica to
show the community is committed
to saving lives of babies and future
generations.
The money raised will go
toward research, education and
other needed areas. People need to
b.be educated on' the importance of
prenatal care. This is especially
true for women who plan on having
children.
SThe committee urges all of
Gadsden County to join the walk
Saturday. "It will only take about
30-45 minutes to complete the walk
that is entirely in the downtown
area. Refreshments will also be
served," O'Halloran said.
For more information call the
March of Dimes at 422-3152.

Third grade reading test scores up


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

Test scores for the county's
third graders showed some
improvement, Superintendent
Reginald James said, although
the increases were only slight.
"We'll take everything we can
get." He said the.increases show
that teachers and students are
trying very hard to make aca-
demic improvements. James
praised teachers for their
efforts.
All schools showed
increases with the exception of
Stewart Street Elementary
School. The increase reflects
the percentage of students who
scored at level 3 (state average)
or above. Here is the break-
down:
*George W. Munroe, 105 stu-
dents taking test, 11 percent
increase
*Havana Elementary. 60 stu-
dents -taking test. 9 percent
increase


*Gadsden Magnet, 19 stu-
dents taking test, one percent
increase
All schools

showed increases

with the exception

of Stewart Street

Elementary School.

The increase

reflects the per-

centage of students

who scored at level

or above.

Sontemplations


By: Alice DuPont


If ever I wanted to be in two
places at once, it was this past
weekend. I wanted to be here for
the Carter-Parramore High
School Super Reunion. But I
was obligated to be in Orlando
for the national conference of an
organization to which I belong.
So, there I sat in Orlando in
meetings all day and wondering
who, in my own graduating
class, I was missing. The Super
Reunion is a super idea. In small
counties like ours where every-
one went to the same school a
super reunion pulls it all
together. While each graduating
class had its distinction, we were
all acquainted with people in
classes ahead of us or behind us.
When I was a senior, I had just
as many friends in the eleventh'


grade as I did my own class. I
had a few friends in the tenth
grade.
The reunion was a way to
bring everyone back together. I
suppose one of the reasons I
hated to miss this one so much
was because of the fun I had at
the one held in 2000. I still mar-
vel at the pictures of classmates.
How some never seem to change
while others seem as if they
have turned into their parents.
Jerome Bryant, James Taylor
and others like the late Nate
Ruffin, set the tone for the sec-
ond Super Reunion. The 2005
committee took up the challenge
and from what I have heard,
they did an outstanding job. I
know it was hard work and they
are to be commended, both the
2000 and the 2005 committees. I


saw Mary McLeroy, Emma
Gunn, and Edna Forehand go
into overdrive trying to pull
everything together as the time
drew close. Sunday afternoon
they all probably exhaled and
gave thanks for a successful
event.
It takes dedicated people to
do what both groups did. They
sought no pay for their efforts,
and recognition and praise will
be slow coming, things happen
like that. But although I wasn't
there, I appreciate all of the
hard work and hours they put
into making the reunion week-
end a super one for everyone
who attended.
Nate Ruffin, Class of 1968,
came up with the idea of the
Super Reunion. His classmates
thought it was a good idea and
decided to help. The first
reunion was great. This one, too,
is one for the memory book. I
hope they keep it going.
But those who made Super
Reunion 1 and 2 a success
deserve all the credit. And our
thanks.

Elementary, and Greensboro Ele-
mentary on April 13th and 15th.
We screened over 750 students of
which a fourth were identified as
needing emergency treatment or as
soon as possible care. Due to the
lack of voluntary dental services
we will only be able to provide fol-
low up care for the students identi-
fied as needing emergency treat-
ment. We will provide dental health
services on both Saturdays 4-30-05
and 5-07-05 at Gadsden Medical

Our goal is to bring awareness
to the lack of adequate dental serv-
ices to children in our community.
It is our hope that we can: secure a
dentist to help meet the needs of
the community in the very near
future.

Ending,electrical ;payment
assistance

Dear Editor:

For fourteen years Jericho Min-
istries, Inc., a charity created by
participating churches in the
county, has helped to ease the pain
of needy people in Gadsden
County, but our season of ministry
is about to end. In addition to our
own personnel shortage, our host
church, which has generously and
graciously provided our operating
facility for many years, has
informed us that, due to their
expanding needs, our quarters will
not be available to us after May 31,
2005.
So, as a result of many factors,
the officers of Jericho have reluc-
tantly decided to cease utility assis-
tance on April 30th, and emergency
food assistance on May 15th in an
effort to meet the established time
line to vacate the building.
The community at large has
been very supportive as we sought
to help the crises brought on by
temporary emergencies.
To the churches'who have faith-
fully kept their promise of support,
to those who have collected,
donated, delivered, or unloaded
food, to those who have con-
tributed money or time, to those
who weekly have met the needy
face to face ...
We sincerely thank you for your
devotion and commitment.

Remembering W.A.
Woodham

Dear Editor,

This letter is kind of a follow-up
comment of my own, following the
death of my longtime friend, WA
Woodham. He kept popping up in
my head or (spirit).and I kept say-
ing to myself, I gotta give him a
call, and see how he is. I finally did
on Tuesday before Mr. Spires' arti-
cle, and got no answer. Thursday I
picked up a paper and Byron
Spires had shared information to
the public informing them what
was going on with W.A. and where


t~iwasi.I'n \ erN grateful for that
because he, put.,me (who :didn't
know), in touch with my friend.. I
sat right down that Thursday nite,
and wrote W.A. a letter, however.
the sheriff passed a few days later,
and I wasn't sure did my letter get
read to him. It was the Sunday
before the funeral that I went down
to the Justice Center to pay my
high respect to my friend, that
Laura, the middle duaghter of the'
Sheriff said to me, Simon we got
your letter, and she had personally
read it to him.
That meant so much to me
because I got a last chance. to say
things to him that I've never said
before, like I love ya man, and I'm
praying for ya. I called him Gads-
den One in my letter, and I hold
hirf to ask God for what He
wanted from him, and believe Him
for it. I also said in my letter that
not only myself, but the county
were praying for his revoery, it just
wasn't God's will.
I first met W.A. Woodham in.
1971 shortly after his appointment
when a friend who was a police-
man told me to go to the sheriff
office and ask for the sheriff who
was looking for a painter. That was
the beginning of a lasting relation-
ship. I've done a lot of paintinf for
W.A. and people he'd set me up to.
We were the same age except he is
6 mos. older.
Before I retired the last job I did
was for my friend W.A.
When the state deleted my job
at the Health Dept. he encouraged
me to get my GED diploma. I had-
n't been to school since 1959 when
I dropped out in the 9th grade and
this was 1995. I bought the prepa-
ration book, got in touch with
Jesus, and the rest is history,
because I got my diploma that
year, being in my 50s.
My main reason for this letter is
to say to the public, don't put off
showing some love, telling some-
one that you love 'em, don't put it
off.
Sheriff Woodham was a very
dear friend of mine. I just made it
in time before he passed to say the
things I wanted him to know. It's
time now people to show some
love to one another or death could
creep up on us, or someone dear to
us then it's too late.

Have you ever just sat and
watched squirrels?
I don't know it for fact, but I
believe that squirrels are nLture's
best problem solvers.Me and the
neighborhood squirrels are in an
ongoing battle to see who can out-
smart the other so far I'm losing.
No matter how difficult I make
it for them to get to the feeder,
they figure some way to steal my
bird feed. I know I've tried
almost everything, but they seem
to have a second sense about rob-
,bing my bird feeder.
I've tried metal flashing. That
worked until they figured a way
around the flashing.
I even suspended the feeder
from a very thin rope hung from a
limb in the middle of my yard
about ten feet from the limb and
ten feet from the ground. There
were no trees around for them to
jump from, I just knew I had out-
smarted the frisky rascals. Oh,
was I wrong.
By the way squirrels can work
in pairs or threesomes when
necessity demands some coopera-
tion.
I'm not exactly sure how they
did it, but I happened to come
around the corner of the house one


afternoon and one squirrel was
hanging on the limb where the
rope was tied. It looked to me
like he was swinging the bird
feeder toward the tree trunk where
his two buddies were waiting to
pounce on the feeder when I star-
tled them.
I conceded defeat and finally
gave up on trying to keep squirrels
out of the bird feeder. I figured It
was a lose, lose situation for me
and who wants to be outsmarted
by a squirrel.
Last week I saw a squirrel dig-
ging a small hole in the back yard.
I watched him bury an acorn about
two inches deep. I didn't think to
much about it until I realized that
it's spring and there are no fresh
acorns on the trees.
Where did he get the acorn
from, I thought? While I was
doing all of this brainstorming I
caught sight of the squirrel again.
This time he was digging up an
acorn. He took his freshly dug
up acorn across the yard and
reburied it.
There might be a lesson here I
thought, as I watched him repeat
the process a couple of times.
Squirrels are smart aren't they? He
was just diversifying his assets in


my yard and keeping his brother
and sister squirrels on their toes.
He moved his acorns just in case
they were considering stealing his
stash.
401Ks and IRAs, hmm, might
not be a bad idea to follow the
squirrels led, you reckon?
I'll tell you something else we
can learn from squirrels. They
have good work ethics, but they
also know how to play. Squirrels,
it seems to me, know how to have
good time.
That's important I think. You
need a good mixture of work and
play in your life.
Squirrels are interesting to say
the least, but they are not bullet
proof. I saw one scampering
across a power line lose his- foot-
ing and fall 20 feet to the ground.
He didn't get up and run off
either. Another
one of our furry friends ran in
front of my car yesterday. He
changed directions four or five
times before finally darting under
my wheel. I missed him or he
missed me, I'm not sure exactly
what happened, but I flinched
waiting on the thump that never
came.
I looked in the rear view mirror
and watched as he shot up a
nearby tree. He was lucky,
because our streets are proof that
not all of the squirrels can make
the right split second decision.
Another lesson, I thought.
Sometimes you just need a lit-
tle luck.

April is Sexual Assault awareness Month


April is Sexual Assault Aware-
ness Month-a time to focus public
attention on the devastating effects
of sexual violence -- and encourage
everyone to become better informed
about and more aware of this major
public health issue. "Society as a
whole.must become better informed
about the problems and realities of
sexual assault," said Women's
Health Officer Nancy Humbert,
M.S.N., A.R.N.P. "Special attention
must be directed to correcting mis-
conceptions and myths about rape
and sexual assault, in order to better
support victims and avoid further
traumatizing and victimizing indi-
viduals who have been attacked."
According to the Florida Council
Against Sexual Violence (FCASV),
rape and other forms of sexual
assault are the most under-reported
crimes in America. Sexual violence
hurts victims and the people who
care about them. Sexual violence
impacts survivors' health, their emo-
tions, and their day-to-day lives.
The FCASV reports:.
* One out of every eight adult
women has been the victim of
forcible rape, which equates to more
than 12 million women in America.
* In Florida, a sexual offense is
reported to law enforcement every
42 minutes.
* Rape is responsible for 11-20%
of teen pregnancies.
* Rape is also responsible for
increased substance abuse and men-


tal health problems, including major
depression, suicide, and post-trau-
matic stress disorder.
* According to a 1996 study by the
National Institute of Justice, total
costs of sexual violence, excluding
child sexual abuse, are estimated to
be $127 billion a year nationally.
DOH's Sexual Violence Prevention
Program currently funds seven rape
crisis centers to provide victim serv-
ices in Florida, and 23 sites that pro-
vide rape prevention education in
Florida.
During the month of April many
of these and other rape crisis centers
are holding sexual assault aware-
ness events. According to the


Florida Department of Law
Enforcement's 2003 Crime in
Florida Report, 12,756 sex offenses'
(forcible rape, forcible sodomy, and'
forcible fondling) were reported in
Florida in 2003. The Florida Depart-
ment of Health (DOH), along with1
rape crisis centers,, believes that
public education about rape and
expanded counseling and advocacy
services for sexual assault victims'
would be effective in increasing vic-i
tims' willingness to report sexual
assaults.

Quincy clears way for new


business to open in 'park'


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

In an effort to jump start its busi-
ness park, the Quincy City Commis-
sion approved Monday night mov-
ing three lots to allow a specialty
company that recycles plastic covers
from tomato fields to start produc-
tion.
The meeting was moved up one
day because of municipal elections.
Construction of a new home for
HD Plastics will soon begin. W.H.
"Bud" Clark, president of CRA
Consulting Inc, said the business
will employ up to 40 people.


Local farmers use the black plastic
covers for their tomato crops. Once
the plastic is used, the company
recycles it and turns it into other
products such as car bumpers, com-
puter housings and plastic lumber.
There are about 5,000 acres in
tomato production in the county.
There are no such recycling plants
in this area according to Clark, how-
ever there is one in south Florida.
In other matters, commissioner
decided to ask the Dexter Jackson
Weekend committee to reconvene to
offer recommendations on how
scholarship funds will be disbursed,
The $23,000 was raised mainly from


private contributions to offer schol-
arships to deserving Gadsden
County students.
The Gadsden County Men of
Action requested $7,500 of the
money to use in the organization's
fund. Members said they would give
out the money under their name.
After more than an hour of dis-
cussing legal ramifications, the
board decided to ask city attorney
Jack McLean to contact Jackson and
determine if he wants to keep the
scholarship in his name and if he
plans to make a contribution. A deci-
sion is expected within 60 days.

It's Time for a Change
It's time for God's people to
find their place in the vineyard of
the Lord. Everyone has a place and
responsibility in the vineyard. In
St. Matthew 20, JeSus asked the
question, "Why stand ye here all
the day idle?" The excuse was
because, "no man hath hired us."
Jesus said, "Go ye also into the
vineyard; and whatsoever is right,
that shall ye receive." Whatsoever
is right, I will pay thee. It may not
be dollars and cents all the time.
What about waking us up and spar-
ing and protecting pur lives and
those of our loved ones while oth-
ers lives are being destroyed? It's
time to find our place and work;
there is work and room for us all.
It's time to study and believe God's
word. We need to get together in
one mind and in one spirit.
Matthew 18:20 KJV: "For where
two or three are gathered together
in my name, there I am in the midst
of them." He will bless the needy
whatsoever the problem. God can
solve them.
Satan cannot take out God's
world. We can see that storms of all
kinds are raging, but Jesus can still
say "Peace, be still." We need to
know who is in control. God still
rules both Heaven and Earth. The
officials are risking their lives try-
ing to save lives. They need our
prayers and support. II Cronicles
7:14 still reads, "If my people
which ,ure cillcd. b' nyenamm ,sha4
humble themselves, and pray, and
seek my face, and turn from their
wicked ways; then will I hear from
heaven, and will forgive their sin,
and will heal their land." Who are
the people of God? God's word is
still true. Where is the shortage? it
has to be His people. Lord, help our
unbelief. St. Mark 9:23-24; St.
Luke 17. Lord, increase our faith.
It's time for a' change. If ye have
faith as a mustard seed, ye can
speak to a mountain or a sycamore
tree it will be plucked up by the
root and planted unto the sea.
Where is our faith?
The youth are seeking for a
solution. Maybe we don't have the
answer to this world's problems,
but we believe we have Jesus. We
take out.problems to Jesus, but we,
often don't leave them there for
Him to solve. Jesus can work it out.
We need an old-fashioned back to
God revival for the people of God.
God still owns the highways and
vehicles. Satan is the undercover
agent destroying lives. God, please
take over out hearts and minds.
God is still in control. We must
realize Jesus in his suffering for our
sins cried out to His Father, "My
God, my God, why hast thou for-
saken me?" Did God really forsake
Jesus? The four gospels illustrate
the last seven days of Jesus' life,
each varying a little in detail. There
are three accounts of the last seven
words of Jesus: three in John, three
in Luke, and one in Mark. There is
little difference between them.
Still, the question is, did God really
forsake Jesus, or was it the sins of
the world on His shoulders? Sin is
the reason that causes us to think.
God is forsaking us today. Jesus
said He would never leave not for-
sake us. However, we must rid our
lives of sin. Jesus is there all of the
time. Just as Jesus suffered in the
flesh, we must be willing to follow
in his footsteps. Read Matt. 15:33-
37, and Psalm 22. Don't allow any-
thing to shake out faith in God. The
prayers of the righteous coupled
with faith will change conditions
today. Jesus knows when to com-
mand peace upon our storms, on
the highways and byways, in
churches, schools, homes, and
nations. As a whole, Lord, save us.
Thank your, Jesus.
Humbly submitted,
Florence M. Bradwell

Health Council aims at health grant abuse


by BYRON SPIRES
Times Staff Writer

Over the past few years Gadsden
County has been the recipient of many
health grants, some were very fruitful and
Helped many local residents. Others drew
from Gadsden County's many problems
the statistics they needed, got their money
and moved on.
Those days are ending thanks to the
Gadsden Community Health Council, a
clearing house for county health grants.
The GCHC was set up with the blessings
of the county commission to stop the
abuse of health grants in Gadsden County.
"Now, any health grant program that
plans to operate in Gadsden County must
clear our board," reports Anthony L. Fedd,
treasurer for the board and site manager
for Engelhard Corporation. Fedd said
that the focus of the board was to develop
programs and improve the health care for
Gadsden County residents.
Gadsden County faces many health
issues including a high infant mortality
rate, low birth weights in new born babies
and diabetes among the elderly.
Neonatal and pre-natal health issues as


well as the high risk of STDs, Fedd said,
added to the health issues that some Gads-
den County residents face. The council's
primary objective was to make sure that
grants that say they will work on these
problems, actually work on the problems.
"We are not going to rubber stamp a
grant, we are asking tough questions of the
grant administrators. You must get the
council's blessing," Fedd said, and that
will not be an easy task.
In order to receive the council's OK a
grant administrator must first prove to the
council the need for the grant. They must
prove the effectiveness of the grant and
they must have results if they are
approved. "Any grants approved
in Gadsden County by the council will be
expected to bring updates to the council
regularly," Fedd said. "We expect
accountability among the grant adminis-
trators. We want to see the needle move,"
he added. As watch dogs of the
county's health grants the council also
monitors grants to make sure that grants
were not overlapping using the county's
health problem numbers. Fedd said he
wanted to make sure that pre-natal care
was provided for expectant mothers, not


just as a number on someone's health
grant.
The council needs both financial help
and volunteers. "I need your help. I
need people who are action oriented, that
want to get involved and make a differ-
ence." He added
that the council needed volunteers that
were familiar with grant writing.
The board currently has 15 members and
meets the second Wednesday of every
month from 10 a.m. to 12 noon at the hos-
pital's board room.
Much of that time is spent reviewing
grants. About supporting the council
Fedd said he felt it was part of his commit-
ment to his employees and the community.
"I have 140 employees at Engelhard,
most of which are from this county. If I
can help my employee base it is of mutual
benefit to the community and Engelhard."
In addition to overseeing health grants
the council has also started its own Pre-
scription Assistance Medical Services pro-
gram. PAMS is in collaboration with.
the Gadsden County Health Department,
the Gadsden County Board of County
Commissioners, Tallahassee Memorial
Hospital, Gadsden Community Hospital,


local physicians and the Big Bend Rural
Health Network. The program provides
free prescription drugs to those who qual-
ify. "We are cur-
rently serving 270 clients in the program,"
said Tymeisha Baker, PAMS program
director. To qualify for the free prescrip-
tion program an applicant would need to
fill out an application. There is a $25
application fee charge. The PAMS
staff will then take a brief medical history
including the types of medication the indi-
vidual is currently taking. O n c e
approved the prescriptions are provided
through a special agreement with drug
manufacturers and will be dispensed
through the patient's doctor. The program
is set up for those that are not insured or
underinsured, and meet certain income
requirements. You must be a resident of
Gadsden County to qualify.
Baker said that the PAMS office has
extended its office hours to 8 a.m. to 2
p.m. Monday through Friday. The PAMS
and council office is located in the Gads-
den Community Hospital. Baker recom-
mended that patients considering the
PAMS program contact her at 875-2143 to
set up an appointment or for information.

Lamb tells Rotarians: we need

more economic development


by BYRON SPIRES
Times Staff Writer

"We need to work together to
move Gadsden County for-
ward," Gadsden county commis-
sioner Eugene Lamb said at the
Rotary Club of Quincy meeting
Tuesday.
Lamb represents county dis-
trict one and was elected to that
post in the 2004 November elec-
tions.
Lamb spoke to the club about
what he feels is one of the
county's primary needs: eco-
nomic development.
"All of the resources are right
here," Lamb said.
Lamb noted that Gadsden
County has four intersections
along I-10 and that the potential
for growth was already in place.
He referred to the current
-growth.in- the Ciity 'of MliJdv. ;.
which he attributes to good lead-
ership and.,the cit3's focus on,
growth. .
"Nlid\r a) is growing because
people are working together
with good, strong leadership."
He said he has that vision for
the county and plans to work
toward seeing the county grow.
He added that it is not just


growth he wants, but good clean
industry that would provide jobs
for Gadsden County citizens.
It is leadership and the people
working together, Lamb said,
that will need to happen before
the county can become prosper-
ous. Lamb remarked that
through his experiences as a
coach, a teacher and a commis-
sioner he has learned that the
best way to lead is by example.
"I believe we should set an
example and move forward,"
Lamb said. "Giving back to
your community is one way to
lead by example."
Being involved in the politi-
cal process is another way.
"You need to come to the county
commission meetings and know
what your county is doing,"
Lamb said. He added that if
you are not happy about what is
happening then you should
speak out aid let it -be known.
..Lamb.said the..perception.,of
the county -needs to be changed.
"We go uptogether or we go
down together," Lamb said.
Which direction the county goes
is dependent on the people of
Gadsden County and what they
are willing to do to correct the
perception of the county.

"We need to change the way
others see us," Lamb said.
"I love Gadsden County, I
feel good about being in Gads-
den County." He added that he
knows there were many people,
both black and white, that feel
the same way he does about the
county and they want the county
to be seen as a good place to
live.
Lamb said that to seek real
growth people are going to need
to work together and he feels the
Gadsden County Chamber of
Commerce is a good place to
start.
"We need to support the
Chamber of Commerce 100 per-
cent." Lamb said the Chamber
of Commerce is the tool needed
to attract good clean industry to
the county.
Lamb pledged to do his part
to help change the perception of
the county and to see that the
county grows with the right kind
of industry.

Tri-Eagle opens


by BYRON SPIRES
Times Staff Writer
Tri-Eagle Sales Distribution Cen-
ter has officially become a resident of
Gadsden County. The Budweiser
beer distributor is the first business to
open its doors at the new Hammock
Creek Business Park just west of
Midway on U.S. Highway 90.
"We're here and we are happy to
be in our new facility," said Kristen
Black, the director for community
affairs for Tri-Eagle.
Tri-Eagle moved into its new
119,000 square foot warehouse on
April 19. The warehouse also
includes a 44,000 square foot refrig-
erated cooler area. "We are planning

for our customers and Gadsden
County residents in late August to
celebrate our new building," Black
said. She added that they were operat-
ing out of the new building, but still
needed some time to settle in after
their move.
Currently Tri-Eagle employees.
110 workers in both distribution and
the warehouse. "Tri-Eagle's opening
is a step in the right direction for
Gadsden County. We are glad to see
businesses like Tri-Eagle move to our
county," Gadsden County's Chamber
of Commerce director David Gardner
said.
Gardner added that Tri-Eagle has


already become a good business part-
ner with the county. Tri-Eagle
brought the famous Budweiser
Clydesdales to Quincy earlier this
year as part of the Kick-off for Gads-
denLearns, a partnership between
local businesses, the Chamber of
Commerce and Tallahassee Commu-
nity College to provide scholarships
to TCC for local students.
Gardner feels that Tri-Eagle's open-
ing in the Hammock Creek Business
Park will also be a tremendous plus
for drawing new industry to Gadsden
County.
He added that the proximity of the
business park to the Midway 1-10
interchange and the large industrial
lots available in the park made for a
perfect combination to encourage
businesses to locate in Gadsden
County.

a part of the relay for life celebra-
tion;
This year Havana Middle school

thousand luminaries. The students
drew, painted, colored, traced cut
and pasted decoration onto plain
white bags, thus turning the bags
into artistic master pieces. This
activity was coordinated by Mrs.


Linda Jones and Mrs. Portia Robin-
son. These are a few of the students
comments made by the HMS artist,
"last year I attended the relay on
my bike. I rode through the park
and knocked down some bags. But,
this year I understand the impor-
tance of the luminary and I will ride
my bike with a little more care."
Another student responded with,
"This is the first time I've ever
really understood what relay for
life is all about" The Students seem
to enjoy the activity.

Gadsden County Times April 28, 2005 15


by BYRON SPIRES
Times Staff Writer

Before the time of paved roads
and automobiles, in our not so
distant past, the land we now call
home, Gadsden County teemed
with wildlife. Wild turkeys
pecked their way across what are
now major thoroughfares and
bears roamed where housing
developments now stand. Eagles
soared and the woods were plen-
tiful with rabbits and quail.
SAmong those wild and
untamed animals that roamed
Gadsden County's woods was a
lidn of sorts, the Florida Panther.
:Once, the panther, a big and
beautiful cat hunted its prey
aniong pine thickets and oak hol-
lows that cover North Florida and
especially Gadsden County.
'But not any more.
The big cat that left footprints
the size of a man's balled up fist
in muddy bottoms and dried tip
creek beds has been pushed to
near extinction. It would be
nearly impossible to find some-
one that actually witnessed a wild
panther in this area.
Only a handful of Florida pan-
thers live in near isolation in the
Florida Everglades. Inbreed-
ing, health issues and automo-
biles have pressured even those
few Florida panthers that are
hanging on at the brink of exis-
tence over the edge. M an's
push to tame the untamed land
has brought about the near
demise of a species that once
roamed the entire East Coast of
the United States.
"The message we need so
much to take time for: (is) that
man can have a profound effect
on his environment," Gloria
Johnson an activist and owner of
Cougar Ridge, a sanctuary for
panthers said. Johnson is
devoted to her two Florida pan-
thers, a 6 year-old male Lakota
that weighs about 130 pounds


Big Cats:


Gloria Johnson gives refuge to Florida panthers


and a seven
year-old female
Ashukalee (a
Seminole name
meaning Sugar)
weighing about
120 pounds.
She is certified
and licensed by
both the state
and federal
governments to
house the big
cats. She
received her
training under
renowned big
cat trainer and
breeder Robert
Beaudy in Cen-
ter Hill,
Florida.
She first fell
in love with the
big cats she
said when she
decided to ven-


ture


into


Ashuklee restin
calls her is one


wildlife paint-
ing. I
would go to the Tallahassee
Junior Museum and spend the
day watching and taking pictures
of the panthers the museum had
on display," Johnson said.
Her painting career waned,
but a love of the big cats blos-
somed. She started volunteering
at the museum and the rest is his-
tory she said.
It was after her transformation
from artist to big cat lover that
she sought out Beaudy. H e
became her mentor and intro-
duced her to even bigger cats.
Tigers to be exact. She was
introduced to a couple of tiger
kittens and she was smitten.

son looks at
some of the

tigers she
helped raise
that are now
grown cats.

Spires

Working with
the big cats was the direction she
said wanted to go.


"I'm better with the adoles-
cent cats," she said, referring to
the age after the cats are weaned.


One of her
duties with
Beaudy was to
familiarize the
kittens with
humans.
"You have to
spend a lot of
time with them
when they .are
young to get
them accus-
tomed to being
around people,"
Johnson said.
To be licensed
Johnson had to
spend 1,000
hours interning
with Beaudy
learning about
the big cats, a
time she said
that was well
spent. On the
shelves in her
home are dozens
of pictures of her
and some of the


'..:' animals she help
get a start in life.
Pictures of John-
son with Sigfred
and Roy and Jim
Fowler (Mutual
of Omaha's Wild
Kingdom) also
adorn her walls
as a reminder of
where her pas-
sion for the big
cats has taken
her.
Her back yard is
a fortress where
her two panthers now make their
home. She raised both cats from


babies and both were stricken
with illness at very young ages.
They both survived and are
healthy now Johnson said. The
pair roam amidst a compound of
high fences covered in heavy
wire in Johnson's back yard.
Johnson allows small groups
to visit her compound north of
Havana and see her two big cats.
A recent group of students vis-
ited her compound where she
explained the problems associ-
ated with caring for caged big
cats.
She said her two cats were
"ambassadors" for the animal
world. The students also saw a
video of Lakota cavorting in the
family pool. He would dive from
the side of the pool into the water
after a toy.
"He will even put his head
under water," she said as he
dived off the side of the pool
again chasing the toy.
They are still wild animals she
tells students that come to see the
panthers.
They are not like house cats
that you can let sit in your lap she
said, as Lakota bared his large
canine teeth. "I want to edu-
cate the public about what has
happened to these animals (near
extinction) ," Johnson said.
When Johnson is not sharing
her love for the Florida panther
she has a regular job that pays the
bills. She is a legislative lobbyist
representing several clients.
She has also written a book
about her experiences raising big
cats and her two panthers titled,
"The Lady and the Tiger", pub-
lished by Lion Press.
If you would like more infor-
mation about Johnson's work
with the big cats you can email
her at gjpanthergirl@aol.com. or
contact her at 850-539-4337.
There is no cost or fee for a
group to visit, but as a non-profit
organization she will take dona-
tions. ,!

;io be a princess because being a
princess is fun and exciting, and
t represents beauty. I would also
ike to be royal." Jamyia

princesss because of who I am
rom the inside out. I love people
nd I am excited about life."
SBoth Kyla and Jamyia, from
Is. Janice Monroe's second
rade class, were chosen by Miss
lorida Panhandle USA to be fea-


tured as "little princesses" and
were assigned a "big sister" con-
testant in the pageant. Dressed in
elegant white gowns of their
choices, Little Princess Kyla and
Little Princess Jamyia presented
a flower to their "big sisters" in
the televised pageant.
Monroe states, "Both girls are
honored students whose names
have appeared on the Principal's
List. Little Princess Kyla is kind-
hearted, sagacious, and full of
curiosity; while Little Princess
Jamyia is friendly, vivacious, and
full of grace. Both students are
also caring and always willing to
help others. They are my "little
princesses". I am elated to have
them as members of my class.
Little Princess Kyla is the
daughter of proud parents Lucre-
tia Washington and John Robin-
son, Jr. Little Princess Jamyia is
the daughter of proud parents
Keyonna Fields-Dicks and Ben-
nie Herman. James Dicks is

Pencil Story

Everybody forgets sometimes and it
has nothing to do with the dreaded
disease, Alzheimer's .Children,
especially sixth graders, seem to
have more than their share of
momentary memory laps. At HMS
we try to eliminate excuses by
preparing for minor forgetfulness.
Mrs. Remel Spencer, who is one of
the custodians at HMS, picks up
pencils while doing her rounds.
These pencils are then recycled to
the students. One of the sixth grade
teachers has a cup where the pencils
are deposited. The students are
allowed to borrow a pencil if they
get an occasional laps in memory. If
the same student appears at the loan
counter too many times there are
consequences. If a student consis-
tently comes without supplies a par-
ent is notified. The parent is ask to
remind the student to bring sup-
plies. HMS takes the approach no
student should be penalized for an
occasional laps ofmemory because
it happens to the best of us.

B cats' hot wee taes




them to a 15-7 season


The week before last wasn't a real
good one for the Munroe baseball team.
They lost 3 games and were out scored
29-2 during that period. They finished
the week with a 12-7 record and needed
a lift.
Thie got it with 3 wins last week
that saw them push their record to 15-7
heading into the regular season end and
the play-offs.
The Bobcats had wins Thursday, Fri-
day, and Monday with Carrabelle falling
12-1 on Thursday, Blountstown losing
5-1 on Friday and Sneads getting
edged by the Cats 8-7 Monday.
In the win over Carrabelle, Joey Hig-
don pitched a 3-hitter in the 5 inning
game to i in his 7th game of the year.
Munroe used a big 6 run 3rd inning
to put the game away. Blake Holcomb,
Thomas Sirmons, and Bryant Tolar had
key hits in the inning and Higdon had a
2 run double.
Holcomb, Sirmons, and Higdon all
finished with 2 hits in the district win
that put Munroe at 6-2 overall in the
final district standings.
In the win over Blountstown a pitch-
ing duel between Sirmons and the Tigers
Micheal Guilford unfolded for the first 3
innings before Munroe exploded for 5 in
the 4th. Higdon opened the inning with
a double. It looked like he would be
stranded after 2 quick outs. But a double
by freshman Ben Young plated Higdon.
Tyler McKinnon was then hit by a pitch,
and Sirmons singled in Young. Tolar
then knocked in McKinnon with a hit
and Clay White scored Young with a
single making it 4-0. Tolar got the fifth
run on a passed ball.
Sirmons then coasted allowing only
a 6th inning run as he lifted his record to
4-2 this year.

walked. Sirmons also walked to load
the bases setting up McKinnons squeeze
bunt. It was perfectly placed and
allowed Gay to score the winning run.
"It's been a couple of weeks of highs
and lows." Bobcat coach Bob Baston
said. "I'm just urging the players to not
let up, continue to improve, and keep
their composure."
Munroe hosted FAMU Wednesday
night and will play at East Gadsden
Thursday to complete their regular sea-
son.
They meet Carrabelle in the District
.3-A tournament on Tuesday at 4 pm at
the Munroe Field.

regular-season events. As many as
200 boaters and 200 co-anglers are
expected to compete in the tourna-

on except for the
season-ending Super Tournaments,
which award 300 points to the win-
ner, 299 points for second, 298 for
third, and so on.
If the winner is a participant in the
Ranger Cup incentive program, he
will receive a $1,000 bonus from
Ranger Boats and $500 from
Yamaha if his boat is powered by
Yamaha. (Ranger will award $500
to the highest-finishing Ranger Cup

ing unit, Garmin will also award a
$1,000 bonus. Bombardier will
award $1,000 to the winning boater
if the winner's boat is -equipped
with a qualifying Evinrude Direct
Injection outboard.
That's a potential top award of
$8,500 for anglers who meet conti
agency guidelines.
The winning co-angler will earn as
much as $2,750 cash. The angler
who catches the biggest bass of the
day in the Boater Division will earn
as& much as $1,000, and--the co-
angler big-bass winner will earn as
much as $500.
The top 40 boaters and co-anglers


in each of the BFL's 28 divisions at
the end of the season are eligible to
advance to regional competition.
Seven $110,000 regional champi-
onships will each send six boaters
and six co-anglers to the 2006 All-

feature a $1 million purse and a top
award as high as $140,000.
Anglers who compete in all five
regular-season events within a divi-
sion but do not advance to regional
competition are eligible to compete
in the Wild Card, which will also
send six boaters and six co-anglers
to the All-American for a champi-
onship field of 48 boaters and 48 co-
anglers.

boaters and co-anglers will advance

compete against anglers from the
Bama, Seminole and South Carolina
divisions for an All-American slot.

deck against other co-anglers.

affordable, close-to-home weekend

April 24, 2005
I heard that the Gov-mint of Florida
should orta round up all their child sex
offenders, transport them all out west of Key
West to Dry Tortogas Ft. Mite git-em all on
the island. Then the same rumor source sedt
that the GA Gov-mint mite should ortar
round up all of Georgias known child sex
offenders and put them in a stockaid on
Billy's Island in the middle of the
Okeefeenocee Swamp. One way or the
other, some one needs to get a handle on this
problem.
If you are a bowhunter you are invited to
attend the 36th annual "Carperee" starting
April 30th and May 1st. Come and bring a
friend.
Outside of Cathy Cox facing a huge crowd
in the Park in Bainbridge the next biggest
thing is Mr. Buck Rhyner, teacher at Hutto
School landed a 3 1/2 lbs. Shellcracker in the
Flint River below Bainbridge. That is not
the state record, which is 6 oz. more, but to
me it's a Big Fish. A side ways photo shows
she was not played out and was 3 inches wide.
The Post Searchlight employees, thanks to


Mr. Mark Pope, has had a near solid week of
ketchin Krackers. With the guests, he's had
near 500 went into the Krisco.
Mr. Chris Neely and friend, Kay Bass has
loaded up their boat several times this week.
Ray Davis, of Bass Island Campground here
at Wingates Lodge, has had a good week this
week on Krackers and he reported the first
siting of Willow Flies. That's a good sign of
Sa good year coming up. The Willow Fly has
to have good water to hatch in.
This past "Flood" has changed the grass
beds that were there and in Bass Fishen you
will have to find new grass walls to fish.
But unlike the 1994 flood our food chain did
not sweep out of the lake. The water that,
produces Merritts Mill Pond Marianna, FL,
Three Rivers State Park, AL, Spring Creek,
GA and Flint River, GA are all one and the
same type of water, cold limestone water,
that gets the cork screw snails to grow as
well as the fresh water shrimp. Food for the
Krackers and Bream.
The Bennett Family Tournament from the
St. Johns River area had about 17 boats go
out this past weekend here at Wingates. The
winner had 21.34 lbs. and Big Fish was 7.62
lbs.

on the action and the refreshments.


Dodgers' Donnell Brown tried to make it home ona a slide, but home plate umpire Alvin Bush had a keen eye on the
bag: Brown was out.
