of life through which all humanity must pass.

they do best, mothering. For some it will be a
time of remembrance; a time to remember
their mothers and a special time to share
motherhood with others.
Sharing is exactly what Frances Williams

"This is solely for informational

commissioners got a thick packet of
materials to read over at their

The cover letter said the packet
contained three copies of a Utility
Permit Application to "accommo-

The letter was not so much asking
permission, but rather outlining
what the company plans to do.
"This line will begin at the intersec-

Chaplain Larry Edwards, Daytona Beach Police Department
Sheriff's "God Squad" kicks
off faith based program


By BYRON SPIRES
Times Staff Writer
For Chaplain Larry Edwards of
the Daytona Beach Police Depart-
ment involving God in the day to
day operations of police work is part
of his job.
Edwards was in Gadsden County
Thursday and Friday of last week as
part of Sheriff Morris Young's First
Annual "God Squad" training semi-
nar at the Kelly Campbell Center,
where he spoke to law enforcement
personnel, community leaders and
local ministries about the impor-
tance of community involvement in
law enforcement.
Young has said that he wanted
the seminar as a way of drawing law
enforcement officers, local minis-
ters and citizens together to help in
his vision of community based law
enforcement. In working
together as a community Young said
that it could help defuse problems
that are developing on school cam-
puses as well as in neighborhoods.
Young is currently working with
a core group of volunteers to estab-
lish a community based program
that will reach across the county.
The idea is to involve local'citizens
to help law enforcement personnel
in their community.
Edwards encouraged ministers to
get involved in the day to day oper-
ations of police in their communi-
ties. He 'ui,--t.d rth1tt 'they work


closely with law enforcement in
helping to solve problems in their
communities and keep the commu-
nications between local citizens and
law enforcement open.
He was aided in the seminar by
County Commission Chairman Ed
Dixion who told law enforcement
officers to "make yourself more
user friendly". He also encouraged
ministers to help citizens to learn to
trust local law enforcement officers
by involving them in local activi-
ties.
Sheriff's deputy Keisha Long
gave a short presentation on the
Gadsden County Sheriff's office
Neighborhood Crime Watch Pro-
gram. Long said the program was a
way that communities could get
involved in helping law enforce-
ment police their neighborhoods.
It only takes one person in the
community to get the program
started she said.
The principle behind the pro-
gram Long said is to get citizens to
watch in their communities for
crime and report it to law enforce-
ment officers. She said it was
not intended for citizens to get
directly involved with criminals, but
to oversee their neighborhoods and
watch for unusual activities.
If you would like more informa-
tion concerning the "God Squad" or
the neighborhood watch program
you can call the Sheriff's office at

1 41 sexual offenders Quincyfest Blues and Barbecue Saturday, May 14


are registered in Gadsden County


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

Who's living among us? Are
our children safe? At last count
there are 141 sexual offenders of
children in the county, and 14 of
them are labeled predators. Leon
County, with triple the number of
residents, also has 14 people
labeled predators.
A sexual offender is a person
who has been convicted of, or has
pleaded guilty to, a sexually ori-
ented offense but has not been
designated a sexual predator or
habitual sexual offender.
A sexual predator, according to
the Florida Department of Law
Enforcement, has committed mul-
tiple sex offenses or has been
charged with a high-degree felony
involving a sex crime. The sen-
tencing court determines after a
hearing whether the offender is to
be designated a sexual predator.
At the judge's discretion, a preda-
tor may be prohibited from work-
ing with children, whether for
compensation or as a volunteer.
Recently Florida again made
national news with the abduction
and subsequent murders of two
young girls in central Florida less
than two weeks apart. In both
cases the culprits have been
alleged to be sexual predators.
The National Center for Missing
and Exploited Children is step-
ping up its efforts to inform com-
munities about the problem. In
both of the above-mentioned
instances the crimes occurred in
small rural towns.
"The words sexual exploitation
evoke a number of reactions and
feelings. Perhaps-one of the most
devastating is silence our inabil-
ity or unwillingness as a society
to speak about this horrific prob-
lem. The National Center for
Missing and Exploited Children
(NCMECI is working to bring
sexmtal exploitation to the fore-
front and to raise awareness about
this issue and to help combat the


negative long term effects," stated
a recent information pamphlet.
The NCMEC and the Quincy
Police Department, which has a
program called A Child Is Missing
Program, said there are steps that
can lead to the reduction in the
incidence of sexual exploitation.
"It's a national non-profit organi-
zation that is federally funded and
it is used for missing children,
said Officer Furman Richardson.
The NCMEC offers the follow-



"The words sexual

exploitation evoke a

number of reactions

and feelings. Perhaps

one of the most dev-

astating is silence -

our inability or

unwillingness as a

society to speak

about this horrific

problem."


The National Center for Miss-
ing and Exploited Children
(NCMEC)



ing advice to parents:
*Parents should first listen to
their children. Pay attention to
them if they tell you they don't
want to be with someone or go
somewhere.
*Take time to talk to children.
Encourage open communication.
-.*Notice when someone shows
one or all of your children a lot of
attention and begins t give themn
gifts.
*Teach them that they have the
right to say no to any unwelcome,


uncomfortable, or confusing
touch or action by others. Teach
them to immediately tell if that
happens.
*Look and listen to small cues
and clues that something may be
troubling your child.
*If they do confide problems,
strive to remain calm, noncritical,
and non-judgemental. Listen with
compassion to their concerns.
*Screen caregivers and
babysitters. Check references
with other families who have used
the sitter or caregiver.
*Provide oversight and super-
vision of your child's computer
use. Know who they cormnuni-
cate with online and where they
may have access to computers.
*Be involved in your child's
activities and wok with the
schools.
"The Gadsden County Sher-
iff's Office is notified any time a
sexual offender moves into the
county. That person is required to
register with the sheriff's office
and then one of our deputies goes
out and physically verifies that
the person lives at that address,"
said Whitney Sampson of the
county's Victim's Advocacy Pro-
gram. If a child is sexually
exploited, Sampson's office can
guide parents to the available
services and programs for help.
It is only through unified and
diligent preparation and persistent
prevention efforts that the sexual
exploitation of children can be
addressed. For more information
regarding missing and exploited
children and resources to help,

The list, along with photos, of
Gadsden County's sexual offend-
ers is available to the public at the
local police department, and from

alor,. includes rapist

Gretna looking to the future


By BYRON SPIRES
Times Staff Writer

Gretna city commissioners
took the first steps Tuesday night
in establishing a future compre-
hensive plan for the city.
Carl Merrell, of Optimum
Enterprises Inc., a consulting firm,
spoke to the commission about
ways the city of Gretna could take
advantage of the growth that is
now occurring in Florida.
Merrell said that Opportunity
Florida, the regional economic
partnership, is focused on
strengthening rural counties like
Gadsden A recent article
in a South Florida newspaper
stated that North Florida would
soon be facing a growth similar to
the growth that occurred in Cen-
tral Florida with the development
of Walt Disney World. The dif-
ference, he said, was that in the
case of Disney World no one knew
what was going to happen.
However, Merrell said, the
North Florida area is aware that
growth is coming and needs to be


prepared. Merrell said that
there are several grants available
to instigate a plan for the city to
prepare for the upcoming influx of
growth. He said the city needs a
plan to determine the direction the
commission and citizens intended
for the city to grow.
"It is coming and we need to be
ready," Merrell said.
The commission decided to put
out a bid for a consultant to estab-
lish a plan for the city's growth.
In other business commission-
ers again visited the issue of city
utilities director Charles Hayes'
cell phone bills.
Hayes' cell phone use has been
a topic of several commission
meetings. It was decided last year
Hayes would pay all charges over
$100 of usage on the phone.
According to interim city man-


ager Diane Formman, Hayes had
turned in his cell phone and in a
letter to Formman he limited his
liability in the charges over the
$100 saying the usage was for city
business.
The commission decided to
have Hayes reimburse the city
from his paycheck at $100 per
month on the overage on his
phone bill. The exact amount was
unclear, but appeared to be over
$2,000.
In addition the
commission decided to require
Hayes to have a cell phone as part
of his duties. They set aside $100
to be paid to Hayes as the amount
they would provide him to pur-
chase his own cell phone and air
time.
Hayes was not present at the
meeting.

Oontemplations


By: Alice DuPont


There are two things this week
that have me going and one does-
n't have anything to do with the
other.
First, this "run away bride"
chick that has gotten the attention
of many people across the nation
for the past week, or at least
since she staged her own disap-
pearance. Last week everyone
felt sorry for her. Even my heart
went out to the woman who was
finally, at age 32, going to get
married to the man she loved in a
big fancy wedding. The invitation
list had over 600 names on it. By
all accounts, for those attending it
would be an affair to remember.
And then she disappeared.
Who could have done such an
awful thing? Hundreds of paid
professionals and volunteers
searched all over Duluth, GA
where she live, hoping to find the
bride-to-be alive. Hundreds of
pan hours were logged. Not to
mention the newspaper, television
and radio time devoted to finding
Miss Jennifer Wilbanks. A cnser-
vative guess is that it cost the city
$60,000.
Then comes Saturday morning
and we find that it all was an
elaborate hoax. She wasn't
abducted by a white womn and
an Hispanic man afterall, She just
got "cold feet." or "wedding jit-
ers." Lots of people have second
thoughts about getting married.
but they don't plan a nationwide'
disappearing act to draw attention
to themselves. This woman
thought out every move, includ-
ing pre-arrangihg a taxi pick her
up and take her to the Atlanta bus
station, to begin her little triptwo
weeks ahead of time.
When she called home collect


to say she was safe in New Mex-
ico she didn't immediately tell
the truth. Saturday morning and
early afternoon I was listening to
news reports about this woman
and was a little surprised at how
most of the women newscasters
seemed to think that she needed
sympathy and that her actions
were perfectly understandable.
One after the other, these so-
called experts in human behavior,
love psychology, and the actions
of single but soon-to-be-married
women is some kind of new ill-
ness and as such are to be pitied
and their insanity is to be toler-
ated.
Well, I think what she did was
nothing short of criminal, what-
ever her motives. She ought to be
arrested and put on trial. And she
definitely ought to be ordered to
pay back every cent that was
spent on "finding" her. I recall a
similar incident in Wisconsin a
few months back where a woman
got "lost". It cost that states big
bucks too. I hope this doesn't
turn into some sort of copycat
thing where women, to seek
attention, play games like the one
that was played on a nation last
week.
Secondly, I have never appre-
ciated the style that many young
men have adopted of wearing
their pants well. below the waist.
It looks,iavfuland they look plain
dumb. Any nut who walks around
with his pants so large they have
to be held up with one hand just
to walk causes me to question
their ability to do just about any-
thing.
I have heard two versions of
how the fad got started and both
of them originated in jail. One


There is good news out there.
Even our school system, which
has struggled to find good things
to report, has some reason to brag
this week. Superintendent of
Schools Reginald James will be
the first to caution us to not jump
to conclusions, but there is more
than a hint of pride in his voice
when he talks about the first round
of FCAT scores released by the
state last week.
First, it was our third grade read-
ing scores.
More of our third graders are
reading at or above state averages
than last year. The increases, of
course, vary from school to
school, but EVERY school
reported significant increases.
Some of those schools show 29,
30, even more than 50 percent
increases in the number of stu-
dents at or above state averages.
And the third grade math scores.
Last year 42% of our students
scored at or above the state aver-
age. This year 53% of students
were in that.category one fourth
more than last year. And our aver-
age score took a 16 percent jump!
Every school but one showed
increases in average scores, some
as high as 25 percent!
Then came fourth, eighth and
tenth grade writing scores...
...And we're near the TOP!
Of the 10 county Big Bend area,
Gadsden's students showed the
third highest percentage of stu-
dents meeting or exceeding the
state goal of a 3.5 score out of a


possible 6! Only Leon County
Schools and Florida High had
more students at or above the goal.
And all of Gadsden's students col-
lectively averaged the state goal
level. Five did not.
70 percent of Gadsden students
scored at or above the state goal.
Leon led the area with a 79 per-
cent total and Florida High was at
77 percent. Neighboring counties
Liberty (56%) and Jackson (59%)
were well behind. Even highly
touted Wakulla was one point
below the Gadsden scores. Madi-
son and Jefferson had barely half
the percentage of students reach-
ing the goal level.
A year ago I, for one, would
never have believed significant
progress was coming this quickly.
When last year's FCAT scores

version is that there are no belts
in jail and the other is that males
inmates show ownership of other
inmates and require them to wear
their pants low. Whether that's
true, I don't know, but neither is
flattering. And so we have an
abundance of young males walk-
ing around with their pants down,
sometimes below their backsides,
who think they look good. It
doesn't.
Just yesterday as I drove
down Pat Thomas Parkway, and I
try to avoid in between 1 p.m.
and 2 p.m. because there are just
too many kids running back and
forth the across the street without
a crossing guard or adult in sight.
But, anyway, I had to go that way
and as I got a few hundred feet
from Captain D's four teenage
boys decided to cross in front of
my car. They didn't seem to be in
any sort of hurry to cross, so in
the middle of the block, I just
stopped and let them saunter
across the street. I guess they
couldn't hurry because all four of
them had to hold up their pants
with one hand and use the other
for making hand gestures as they
carried on their conversation.
They all had on khaki pants in
various stages of hanging. On
one, the pants were actually
hanging below his butt revealing
his dark colored underpants.
Now, that was something ugly
and offensive. I could plainly see
the top part of the boxer shorts
worn by the other three.
Other people, mostly women,

their disgust with this particular

I see at the end of the tunnel is
that New York designers are fea-

shirts that button, and sweaters
that are color coordinated.
That fashion trend can't get to
Quincy a minute too soon.


cause for panic. We were near the
bottom of Florida's barrel and the
outlook was bleak.
The school administration, both
current and previous, the teachers,
classroom aides, support staff,
parents, mentors, volunteers, and
students all deserve a bow and
praise for a job well done.
That is not to say it is time to rest
and reward ourselves with a break
from diligence. We still have a
long way to go to attain status as
an exemplary school system, one
that families flock to rather than
avoid. But no one can deny that
significant progress has been
made, and that we are capable of
producing students that measure
up to state standards.
Not all of the scores are in. And
not all of our students are graduat-
ing, or even reading yet. There is
still plenty of reason to keep noses
to grindstones.
But we know now our school
system is capable of successes.
Congratulations to our school
district and its students. You're
making us proud.

finding Roads


Bv: Byron Spires


"Well Byron Lamar, what have
you got to say for yourself," I
remember my mother saying.
My middle name showing up in.
a conversation with my mother
was not a good sign. If anything,
it could only mean gloom, despair
and agony for me.
"But, but, Eddie," she cut me
off before I could say another
word.
"Eddie had nothing to do with
this," she said as she stood with
her arms crossed, looking down at
me with both disbelief and anger
in her eyes.
"Eddie has been right here with
me for the last two hours," she
said.
"Drats," I thought, when did
Eddie ever stay home?
It was one of those few times I
wasn't able to pin the blame on
my brother Eddie.
I had been caught red-handed.
I couldn't think of any good
excuses or any way out of the
predicament I had gotten myself
into.
As I stood looking at her, I was
teetering between a spanking oi
worse, an hour's lecture on the
evils of lying.
This little confrontation had
started over a small lie I told my
mother. Yes, I had lied to my
mother. Kids lie by the way, and I
was certainly no exception.
I just did not think she would
have. reactedthe way she did..


Actually, I didn't think she
would react at all.
My plan did not include her
finding out I had lied to her, and I
figured I was going to get away
with my little deception.
Let me explain why I lied to my
mother. I wanted to go swimming
in one of the local mine holes and
she had forbidden me from going.
I had tried the 'everybody else is
doing it' routine, but it didn't
work. I got the usual reply, you
know the one I'm talking about:
"If everybody else was jump-
ing off a bridge, would you jump
off?" she said. Of course I would-
n't jump off a bridge, I just want
to go .swimming in the mine hole,
I thought, but did not say.
So I deceived my mother and
cooked up a scam to slip away to
the mine hole. It would have
worked except for one small
detail I had overlooked.
My brother Eddie.
I had told my mother I was
going to play ball with the neigh-
borhood boys a couple of streets
over. It was a small lie you see.
I mean, I was with the neigh-
borhood boys, I did walk through
a couple of streets and there was a
ball with us. I just left out the part
about going swimming at the
mine hole.
One of the neighborhood boys
that I was going swimming with
came by shortly after I left and
Eddie just happened to be sitting


on the front porch. Eddie told him
I had already left to play ball.
"Play ball," the kid said,
"we're going swimming at the
mine hole." The cat was out of the
bag.
It was payback time I'm sure
Eddie was thinking, as he shot
through the door to tell our
mother what I had done.
She. didn't track me down, but
waited until I came home to con-
front me with my misdeed.
I was trapped and since I didn't
know about the Fifth Amendment
at the time, I confessed.
"No," I said, I hadn't thought
about snakes or alligators or
quicksand or the possibility of
drowning. I just wanted to go
swimming in the mine hole.
Oh yes, I got the hour lecture
instead of the spanking. Did it
work?
I wish I could tell you that I
was the perfect child after that lit-
tle talk about lying, but I can't.
What I can tell you is that I
learned a lot, growing up, from
my mother. She did what mothers
are supposed to do, raise their
children. She disciplined me when
I needed to be disciplined, she
counseled me when I needed
counseling and she loved me even
when I wasn't a perfect child.
When I became an adult my
mother was my best friend, she
was someone I could confide in
and share my troubles and tri-
umphs with.
I miss her a lot.
I'm glad we set aside a special
day to recognize our mothers,
they are special. Besides, who
else would love a kid that would
tell a simple little lie?
Happy Mother's Day

Pre-K program problems

Dear Editor,

I am not happy with the Pre-K
Program for the 3 and 4 year olds. I
have tried for two years to get my
child in school. Last year we tried,
to no avail, when she was 3 years
old and she was placed on the wait-
ing list. We never received a call
from the Pre-K Program.
I tried again this year to get my
daughter into the Pre-K Program. I
am fully aware that one of the
screening criteria is income. How-
ever, I know several families in our
area whose income far exceeded my
family income and yet their children
have been accepted in the Pre-K
Program. There are teachers at
Steward Street Elementary School
whose children are attending the
Pre-K Program. When I asked on of
the Pre-K screeners about this situa-
tion, I was told that the screeners
could only go by what was put on
the application. Is there no process
in place for verifying the informa-
tion on the applications? If income
is a criteria, why are people not
required to provide pay stubs or
proof of income for both parents?


I would like to see an investiga-
tion conducted into the screening
criteria of the Gadsden County Pre-
K Program and how that criteria is
being applied. My husband and I
both work and pay.taxes in order to
provide a home for our children
and, hopefully, we will be able to
offer them opportunities we did not
have. I can't help but feel that our
child is being punished and held
back because we work. I don't think
that as a parent we should be pun-
ished for trying to set a good exam-
ple for our children and bringing
them up with the right morals.
Would my child be better off if I
stayed home and picked up a gov-
ernment check once a month?
It is extremely frustrating to
think that our child cannot attend
school because of income or a
screening system which will result
in keeping our kids behind. Gads-
den County has failed my child and
ultimately all of the 3 and 4 year
olds in the county. They are being
stopped before they even get
started. This is the most valuable
time in their lives, and we as par-
ents, grandparents, concerned citi-
zens, need to speak out.

How to fix social security

Dear Editor,

There is no emergency to act on
Social Security unless there are
some who have never liked Social
Security and think the political cli-
mate is right to have their way with
this program that has proven it's
worth for seven decades.
There are a few changes that can be
made to address the financial needs
beyond 2041. The special commis-
sion of 1983 made the system sound
until then. I think the following will
properly address the problem:
1- Raise the cap on earnings gradu-
ally until 90% of wage earners are:
covered.
2- Begin investing all surplus funds
collected annually in conservative
stocks and bonds.
3- Convert, over next 10 years, the:
special issue bonds to negotiable,
bonds that are in the trust fund.
4- Raise Social Security contribu-
tions, from earners and employers,'
by 1/8% annually for next 8 years,.
or until the system is solvent for'
next 75 years.

No means no even on a date BicycleSafety
Rodeo and


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor


With high school proms near,
graduation and out-of-school activ-
ities just around the corner the
local Refuge House coordinator
wants young women to know that
sexual violence even on a date is a
crime. "Some young ladies feel
that because they are dating the
guy or they know the guy, it's not a
crime," said Karnell Jones.
Statewide the Department of
Health is focusing on getting infor-
mation into the hands of those who
need it most. "It is a time to focus
public attention on the devastating
effects of sexual violence and
encourage everyone to become bet-
ter informed about and more aware
of this major public health issue,"
said Lindsey Hopkins of the
Department of Health.
Here are some facts released by
the DOH to illustrate the magni-
tude of the problem.
*One in 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 assault is
reported to law enforcement every
42 seconds.
*Rape is responsible for 11-20
percent of teen pregnancies.
*Rape is responsible for
increased substance abuse, mental
health problems, including major
depression, suicide, and post trau-
matic stress disorder.
*According to a 1996 study by
the National Institute of Justice,

Watson cautions commissioners about interfering


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

Prefacing his comments with "I'd
love to do this behind closed doors",
Commissioner Sterling Watson said
that individual commissioners
should not involve themselves in the
day-to-day operations of the county.
He said that in the past commission-
ers have run the county.
Watson said it was wrong for
Commissioner Brenda Holt to
announce in a public meeting that
she planned to be in the county man-
ager's office and that "there needs to
be pcid-iiincl ,changes'". He said.
employees should not have to \orrny
whether or not they will have a job
after an election. "Our employees
should not have to be concerned
about a commissioner showing up on
their jobs and intimidating employ-


ees. I think we need to take profes-
sionalism a step further. If we have a
problem we go to this gentlemen first
(pointing to county manager Marlon
Brown). I'd like to start fresh with
Mr. Brown tonight," Watson said.
"We all understand the practices
of the past. This board has two
employees, the attorney and the man-
ager. Please refrain from anything
other than incidental contact. You are
not to give orders and direction. That
is not our job. Practices of the past
are over. We have professional peo-
ple, let, them, do.,thpir jobs," said
Chairman Ed Dixon.
Holt said after the meeting that
she \\ eu to the Public Works Depart-
ment and inspected a truck which has
a dent "the size of a 50 cent piece"
and an employee was given a one-
day suspension for it. She said she
thought the punishment was too


harsh for the infraction.
In other matters, commissioners
voted to approve an annual fee of
$50 for citizens to have unlimited
use of dumpsites. The sites are soon
to be gated and locked when there is
no attendant. Permits may be pur-
chased beginning May 30 from the
Public Works Department at 1284
Highbridge Road in Quincy. For
more information call 875-8672.
The dumpsites are: Post Plant
Road, Lincoln Drive in Chatta-
hoochee, Rodshaw Road, High-
bridge Road in, Midway, ,and, Pat
Thomas Parkway in Lake Talquin.,

total costs of sexual violence,
including child abuse cases, are
estimated at $127 billion a year
nationally.
"It happens more than most peo-
ple suspect. The sad part is that this
is only the tip of the iceberg. Most
rapes and sexual abuse go unre-
ported," Jones said. Sexual crimes
are the most under-reported crimes
in America. The Gadsden County
Domestic Violence and Sexual
Abuse Task Force meet monthly to
discuss problems, to find ways to
educate the public and to work
with the court system to prosecute
the offenders.
Chattohoochee city manager
Lee Garner chairs the task force. At
a recent meeting Garner said the
task force is constantly working to
find ways to convey to the public
the importance of facing the prob-
lem and committing to do some-
thing about it.
Jones said if the public thinks
sexual abuse is a crime that goes
away, they're wrong. Sexual abuse
leads to myriad problems. The
Connecticut Sexual Assault Ser-
vices discovered the following,
through years of research:
*Rape victims are 9 times more
likely than non-victims to attempt
suicide. In a study of males sexu-
ally abused as children, 50 percent
had suicidal thoughts and 23 per-
cent attempted suicide.
*62 percent of pregnant -or par-
enting adolescents had experienced
contact molestation, attempted
rape, or rape prior to their first
pregnancy. Between 11 and 20 per-
cent of girls were pregnant as a

three weeks and there are no snags

said Brown.
"I'd love to help them, but we're
skipping a lot of steps. Do we want
to get into this?" asked Watson.
Dixon told Patel the waiver was
to help him and to help the county.

quick and now," he said.

Gadsden security staff, nurses honored


Rehabilitating offenders, providing
a safe and secure environment and
making a positive contribution to soci-
ety are all in a day's work for the cor-
rectional officers who work at Gads-
den Correctional Facility in Quincy.
Each year, the contributions of security
staff at correctional facilities around
the country are honored during
National Correctional Officers' Week,
April 30-May 7.
"The corrections field includes a
variety of professional disciplines, and
each one is an important part of our
operating team. The largest percentage
of employees in a correctional facility
is security staff, and they perform the
functions that are essential to our suc-
cess as corrections providers. Correc-
tional officers form the backbone of
our institution by helping us to provide
a secure environment and to assure the
safety of the community, our staff and
fellow inmates," says Orlando


Rodriguez, Warden at Gadsden Cor-
rectional Facility.
"National Correctional Officers'
Week provides us the opportunity to
thank these employees for the high
quality service they provide to our
industry and the contributions they
make to our community," said
Rodriguez.
As the demands placed on the nation's
health care system grow, nurses play
an increasingly important role across
Sthe health care continuum. Nurses are
the first line of contact for individuals
in need of medical care. They fre-
quently serve as primary caregivers,
counselors, and educators. In addition
to the responsibilities of their chosen
field, nurses in correctional health care
face the added challenges of a diverse,
continually changing population with a
wide variety of mental and physical
needs. The contributions of nurses will
be celebrated this month during


National Nurses Week, May 6-12.
Themed "Nurses: Many Roles, One
Profession" National Nurses Week
was officially proclaimed in 1982. The
week-long celebration is timed to coin-
cide with Florence Nightengale's
birthday, and is sponsored on the
national level by the American Nurses
Association. The nursing profession
has been supported and promoted by
the American Nurses Association
(ANA) since 1897.
"National Nurses Week provides us
the opportunity to thank these profes-
sionals for the high quality service they
provide to our industry and the contri-
butions they make to our community,"
said Rodriguez.
Gadsden Correctional Facility will
honor its correctional officers and
nurses during the observances with a
variety of special events including a
BBQ chicken cookout and a token of
appreciation to GCF staff. Gadsden


County Sheriff's Office, Quincy Police
Department, Quincy Correctional
Facility and Gretna Police Department
will be the honored guests at this cook-
out. CCA manages the 1037-bed, min-
imum-security facility for the Florida
Department of Corrections. GCF pro-
vides numerous programs to inmates
such as educational, vocational, recre-
ational, and religious programs.


direct result of sexual assault.
*Girls and boys who are sexu-
ally abused are significantly more
likely to report eating disorders
than their non-abused like-gender
peers. In one study 63 percent of
women who were sexually abused
as children had eating disorders.
*Sixty percent of the prostitutes
have been sexually abused before
the age of 16 by an average if two
people for an average of 20
months. Among children who were
sexually abused, the odds are 27
times higher that they will be
arrested for prostitution as an
adult.
*There are also the HIV risk
factors to consider. There is a
strong link between sexual abuse
victimization early in life and
involvement later in life in sexual
behaviors that place women at risk
for contracting HIV. In one study,
65 percent of the HIV positive sub-
jects had been sexually abused or
physically abused since childhood.
*Women with very low self-
esteem are four times more likely
to have a history of childhood sex-
ual abuse than others.
*One study of homeless women
found that 38 percent had a history
of childhood sexual abuse and 46
percent had a history of rape as an
adult.
*An estimated 3.8 million adult
women have had rape-related post
traumatic stress disorder and an
additional 211,000 will develop it
each year. More than half of psy-
chiatric inpatients and outpatients
have a history of childhood sexual
abuse.

The Alzheimer's Disease Educa-
tion and Referral Center web site
defines Alzheimer's disease as "the
most common form of dementia
among older people," affecting the
areas of the brain handling thought,
language, and memory. Often the
first symptom is mild forgetfulness.
Perhaps four million Americans
have Alzheimer's disease.
Marcia Pelishek, a 57-year-old
dairy farmer from Pulaski, Wiscon-
sin, and reader of this column in the
Green Bay Press Gazette, has been
trying to cope with her mother's
Alzheimer's disease. "I. was doing
excellent (emotionally) until last
week when reality began setting in,"
she said in a telephone interview., "It
has become hard for my mother to
carry on a conversation. She now
lives on an Alzheimer's unit of a
nursing home."
Her mother had already been
showing mild symptoms four years
ago when a stroke complicated mat-
ters by also making her hard of hear-
ing and blind in both eyes. "My
mother had a severe headache that-
l.t. jJ.'" ;lie said ofi ..st:coki

"She didn't see a doctor and didn't
tell me what had happened until
Monday. I got her in to an eye spe-
cialist, but by then she had lost 95
percent of her sight. Today, she can't
even see light or dark. If you get by
her ear and talk at a certain tone she
can hear you, though."
It wasn't until a few years before
the stroke that she and her mom
actually began having a close per-
sonal relationship. This has made
the current situation for Pelishek
especially difficult. And her
mother's blindness has been a
mixed blessing, she said. It has been
good in the sense that she can't
physically wander away from the
nursing home.
Pelishek said, "I was at the nurs-
ing home just today and my mother
is starting to show a few more signs
of slowing down. The disease is pro-
gressing. She is getting to where she
is less emphatic about life. She still
recognizes us, but not in the capac-
ity she did six months ago."
For people in similar situations
with loved ones, she suggested they
learn everything possible about the
disease. "Talk-to people that have

Celebrating Mothers, Daughters Conference


The Celebrating Mothers and Daughters conference
was held on April 23 at the Kelly Campbell Community
Center, hosted by the community-based program Invest-
ing In Our Youth (IOY). A proud 21st Century Commu-
nity Learning Center program catering to the enrich-
ment of young girls, IOY's first mother-daughter event
was a huge success.
"Our mission was to give them information on how to.
talk to their daughters about present issues that females,
especially African Americans, face today," says Alma
Venisee, the program's director. This mission was
accomplished by offering an entire day of.education and
fun all wrapped into one special event. Sessions
included "The Big Talk", an intense curriculum for par-
ents on how to talk to their teens about sex, drugs, and
sensitive subjects; and "From My Street to Wall Street",
an innovative look at teenage entrepreneurship, creative


joint sessions, inspirational music and choreography by
local artist Carmita McCall, and a formal sit-down
luncheon that featured a powerful message by Vera
McIntyre of Tallahassee.
"It's important to see these types of events here in
Gadsden County. We have a high teenage dropout rate
and teenage pregnancy rate," said Venisee. "We want to
help our young females become secure, productive citi-
zens." For some of these teens, their grandparents are
their parents. Those attending felt the program will help
them to prepare their granddaughters for middle school.
Younger parents as well as single mothers also agreed
that the event not only offered how to talk to their
daughters, but also how to listen to them. For additional
information about IOY programs please contact Venisee
at 875-9275 or stop by 1131-D Live Oak Street, Quincy.

It's Time for a Change
Thank God we are blessed to see one more day. Don't take it light-
ly. This could be the day Jesus comes or calls and there never will
be a cancellation of an appointment with death, no delay or tarry-
ing. It's come as you are to Jesus now, or go when He calls as you
are the choice is ours.. It's been in my spirit for some time to
request nation wide traveling mercy on our highways, but failed to write it. But, May
first I didn't have time to ask for mercy or grace, but thank God for still being in con-
trol. God spared my daughter and myself from hurt, harm or danger in a few sec-
onds. We were going home from worship and praise service on Pat Thomas
Parkway, just before making a left on McCall Bridge Road a truck with excessive
speed passed on our right, just missed us enough to say he missed us. Thank God
for being a present help in time of need. There was a van at the stop sign where he
was going to turn. The truck hit the van where we would have turned on McCall
Road. The truck missed us, we could have hit the truck before it hit the car, but God
took over. It was traveling too fast. Thank God it turned left before my daughter
made her left. Thank God, thank God for being an awesome God. Please every-
body lets ask God to do something. The more improvements they make on our
highways, the more accidents and lost lives are being caused by man. Dear God,
we know we are able to work out violent crime. You are the only one controlling the
whole world. Save us. Lord, body and soul, please, is my prayers.
Humbly submitted, Florence Mims Bradwell









We built our reputation on the caring service we have
provided over the last 40 years.

Happiness Next Door
We had been the best of buddies.
His favorite outfit was blue jeans
And a blue western dress shirt.
'When he flexed his arms
The muscles were like little balls,
Just sitting there.
He stood tall, firm, well rooted,
Proud like a pecan tree.
He was a fun, gentle, loving, caring man,
Who could be tough and firm when needed;
He loved to make boiled peanuts
And sell them in town,
And they were and will always be the best.
His smile was sweet and innocent.
He was like a jacket; warm and shielding;
Enveloping you with his love and tenderness.
I wish so much that he was still here.
He always had wanted a dog,
He hated cats,
He loved to sit on the porch
And watch the birds.
He loved to meet his friends at Hardee's
And have breakfast and catch up on the news.
This 78 year old man was a hard worker.
He gave great advice to whomever needed it.
He was willing to listen
And hear what you had to say.
His after shave was Aqua Velva,
Blue like the crystal clear water of Key West.
He was like a wildfire
Because he kept on going
Till his last little ember went out.
Boy, I sure do miss my best buddy.
The happiness next door
Will always be in my heart!
We Love You!

Studying a farm in motion...
Students in Shulamith Riggins' third grade class and Germaine
Brown's fourth grade class at GEMS observed a working farm in
motion on April 29. The students had an educational guided tour of
Vann Strawberry Farm in Baconton, GA. They learned how strawber-
ries, watermelons, cantaloupes and peaches are grown. After the tour
students picked a pint of strawberries and enjoyed homemade straw-
berry ice cream. Students in Mrs. Sandra Riggins' gifted class in first
and second grades as well as gifted students from St. John Elementary,
Gretna Elementary, and George Munroe Elementary also participated
in the learning experience.

couple of falls a week ago, that
thankfully didn't break anything,
but did cause pain and discomfort
that makes it hard for her to move.
Last year on Mother's Da\ she
was in the hospital recovering from
a broken hip. Her spirit and her
hate of nursing homes got her
through that one and she returned
to live with my sister. Pat. w\ho is


her primary care giver.
Her w11ll and my sister's reluc-
tance to leave her in a home will
probably\ get her back to m\ sister's
despite the burden it puts on Pat.
If that happens all I can do is
help out whenever and however I
can.
If she does stay in the home I'll
visit and tr) to take her out for a
meal.
Which is where I do get some
chuckles from her. Like for
instance earlier this year. She
wanted a biscuit and some coffee
from Burger King. While there I
got myself a breakfast meal. I asked


it she w anted any tater tots. She
said no.
I had to make a stop and go into
a store. When I came out my tots
\ere gone. "Did you eat my pota-
toes ." I asked. "Of course." She
said. "Who else is here to eat
them." "I thought you didn't want
any." I said. "I didn't, but you really
don't need them." She said.
In the past year we're figured
out, in spite of her protest, that our
mom is past 90.
But what ever her age she'll always
be Mon, and hopefully next
Mother's Day shes around and I'll
write about her again.

Cold Case

Continued from Page 1

that something can be gleaned from the bits and pieces
found around the time of the murder.
Schofield worked for Independent Life and Accident
Insurance Company for 27 years before his death. He
disappeared while making rounds in the Midway area.
Authorities speculate that robbery could have been the
motive for the murder since Schofield was known to
carry large sums of money. Several days after he went
missing his brother, Lawton Schofield, found his par-
tially burned collection book, clothing and other arti-
cles on a sandy, two-rut road near Midway. A few days
later Schofield's green Subaru was found parked
behind the Eight Days Inn in Tallahassee. The car had
been there about a week before it was reported.
The fact that Schofield was missing so long and that
the body was found in water made retrieving some evi-
dence difficult. "I have not given up on anything. I'm
still turning over every leaf." He owes that much to the
family, he says.
Ron Schofield, son of the victim appreciates the
efforts. He was 21, a junior at Florida State University
when he first heard of the tragedy. "It was cold and
gray, it had been raining. I was in class taking a final


exam," Ron recalled. His sister, who is four years his
senior, was married to a Navy man and was with him
at a Navy base in Virginia Beach, VA.
Schofield was a native of Florala, AL and moved to
Quincy in 1933. "He was a happy, jolly fellow. He
always expressed his love with hugs and kisses. He
worked hard but he was really a caring guy," Ron said.
It was not unusual for him to help a mother if her baby
needed medicine. "I think he was happiest when he
was helping others."
The father and son didn't do a lot together but they
had a Saturday ritual: after washing the car, they went
to McMillian's barber shop in downtown Quincy to get
haircuts. "My dad was bald, just like I am now, but we
went to get a haircut every Saturday when I was grow-
ing up."
Since the death the family has pretty much moved
on. "Closure was never expected, it would be nice to if
the killer was caught and brought to justice. It would
be nice to know what really happened," he said. His
father's death was a life changing event. "It directly
affected my life for ten years. I think I have gotten
over it. But recently reading articles about what hap-
pened made me cry. I didn't know it would bring back
those memories the way it did," Ron said.
Anyone with information on this cold case or any
others is asked to call the Gadsden County Sheriff's
office at 627-9233 or Investigator Turner 545-9475.

Energy is proposing to construct its
facilities within easements along the
westerly right-of-way of Atwater
Road, then run southerly to the
intersection with the AN Railway.
The conductor (wire) will overhang
into the air space above the right-of-
way and cross the road (as shown on
the distributed maps). Progress
Energy facility will also cross sev-
eral county roads," the letter stated.
Those affected include Morning
Star Road, Max Herrin Road,
Bradley Road, County Road 286,
Hanna Mill Road, County Road 270

The company said in the letter that
it will observe and implement all
safety regulations of the Florida
Department of Transportation as
they relate to construction and
maintenance of traffic. "Further, the
County will be notified a minimum
of 48 hours prior to construction,
and Progress Energy would be
available for a Pre-Construction
Meeting with the County Inspector
upon request."
Progress Energy ran into opposi-
tion from people in the western part
of the county who opposed the con-
struction. Last year the company
withdrew its request. No one stood
Tuesday night in opposition to the
request.

Mothers


Continued from Page 1

The two women are part of the
Women On Missions, sponsored by
the First Baptist Church in Quincy,
and volunteered to make the flow-
ers for the Mothers at River Chase.
A party is planned Friday after-
noon for the 30 mothers who are
able to gather in the dining area,
with cake and ice cream as dessert.
There will be special piano music
by Carmine Straughn. "We might
have a little 'Ragtime' to liven
things up," Williams-added.
Each lady at the party will receive a
crocheted rose made by Ard. Those
mothers that are bedridden will
have a silk flower corsage, made by
Williams, pinned to their pillows.
The pair considers making the
flowers as a labor of love and a
way to share their appreciation for
the mothers at the home who might
not otherwise be able to celebrate
Mother's Day. For Williams,
making the small silk arrangements
was a way to show that you care.
She has spent many hours painstak-
ingly making the clgardi -rib'- .-::
boned corsages. "That is what it is
all about, caring for your fellow
man," Williams said as she laid
each flower in a small wicker bas-
ket.
Working with her hands and cro-
cheting has been a lifetime of joy
for Ard. "When you do something
with your hands, that's special,"
Ard said as she sat crocheting
another flower corsage. Ard
learned to crochet from her Polish
grandmother Eva Siperek when she
was 7 or 8 years old. Her
grandmother did not speak English,
Ard said, but they communicated in
other ways. "She sat me on a
stool with a needle carved out of
wood and showed me how to cro-
chet chains," Ard said.
Mother's Day hold a special
meaning for the pair as well. Both
have raised children and enjoy their
grandchildren. Williams even has
four great-grandchildren. When
talking about being a mother they
have some strong words of wis-
dom. "I learned from my mothe,
how to be a good caregiver, how to
respect others, how to be kind and

Regionally the county did very well,
this year coming in third behind Leon
County schools and Florida High.
Gadsden County's students came in
with an overall score of 3.5 which is
what the state deems as on level with
what is expected for students in a par-
ticular grade.
"Given the fact that the state
raised the bar to 3.5 this year, I am
extremely proud of our students,
teachers ,and administrators. I am
proud of what they have accom-
plished. It proves that we can write
with the best of them," said School
Superintendent Reginald James.
James said that efforts to improve
will only increase now because the
momentum is here and has caught
on in the district. "I have always
known that the students in our
county are among the best in the
state. It was only a matter of time
before everything came together to
put our district in a positive spot-
light," James said.


how to share with my family,"
Williams said. The best advice she
could give new mothers is to give
their children a good spiritual foun-
dation. And even though it is
hard, like the mother bird she said
mothers need to be ready to turn
their children loose and let them fly


on their own when the time comes.
Ard added her advice as well.
"Listen to your children, don't be
too busy to listen." By lis-
tening, Ard said, you may be sur-
prised what you will hear.
A lot of good advice for Mother's
Day.

Gadsden team wins at Disney World

The Gadsden County, Brain Brawl team took First Place in competition at
Disney during the state finals. Mickey Mouse presented Coach Steve
Walker,.science teacher at Robert F Munroe Day School, with the trophy on
Saturday, April 23. The win came following the final round, which was tel-
evised in Orlando.
Twenty-four teams, composed of the best minds from each county, took
part in the three-day Division III rounds. During the entire contest, no Divi-
sion III team scored more points than Team Gadsden County in any round
of competition.
The team members, all Robert F. Munroe School students, are team cap-
tain Samuel Iglesias, Ben Stewart, Duncan Williams, Ashton Fallis, and
Cara Fullerton. Melissa Kent was a substitute for the team. Each winner
received a $500 scholarship to be used at a college of his choice. In addi-
tion to the scholarships, each student was sized for a State Brain Brawl ring,
similar to the rings awarded in the Super Bowl, and all received individual
medals. The large, engraved trophy is on display in the office at Robert F.
Munroe Day School.
The county received a State grant for the competition, which helped defray
the expenses. R.F. Munroe School provided additional funding to lower the
cost per participant to $250.
Walker will coach the Florida Team at the National Brawl championship
to be held in June at Disney World during the week of Junel6th 21st.
Samuel Iglesias will be on the Florida Team since he scored the top points
for the County team. All 50 states, Guam, and Puerto Rico will vie for the
top trophy.

It's 1951 and television is a new phe-
nomenon. Shows like "I Love Lucy"
and "The Honeymooners" are breaking
new ground, and Ozzie and Harriett rep-
resent the quintessential family life.
Do you remember those days? Would
you like to relive those lazy, hazy days
when life was as simple as a Frosty
Morn jingle. when "the height of a pig's
ambition from the day he was born is
hope he will be good enough to be
Frosty Morn".

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.


always


We sell all of our cars at
loan value so you don't
need a down payment!
