400-acre subdivision


coming to Midway


by BYRON SPIRES
Times Staff Writer
The City of Midway may be able to add
another accolade to their growing list of
accomplishments. The city council approved
the conceptual plans of Orion Point, a 500
unit subdivision on County Road 268 west of
Midway.The 400 acre subdivision is part of
the 1600 acres annexed into the city earlier
this year.
The developer, Premier Construction owner
Mehrdad "Pepper" Ghazvini, according to
Midway's growth management director
Roosevelt Morris, is currently building
homes in five subdivisions in Tallahassee.
When asked if he thought there would be any
problems in selling the homes Ghazvini said
no. He explained that it had become very
expensive to build homes in Tallahassee,
especially for working people like police
officers, nurses, and school teachers. He
added that there was a lot of interest in buy-
ing homes in both Gadsden and Jefferson
counties.
Mayor Delores Madison agreed with
Ghazvini. She said that Florida had
as many as 7,000 people relocating into the
state each day and the need for housing was
growing at a rapid pace.
During the discussion council member Ella
Barber asked how many of the homes would
be affordable housing. Ghazvini replied
that ten percent of the lots would be set aside
for affordable housing. He added that they
would not be,congregated into one street or
section but instead scattered throughout the


development. '
According to Morris the entrance to the
subdivision' will be through the 200 acre
Rustling Pines, another 400 lot subdivision
approved by the board and part of the 1600
acre tract. Morris added that
Ghazvini wanted to partner with the city and
help with some of the city's problems that
existed in other parts of the city. He said
that adding the housing development would
help increase the city's tax rolls and help
bring in needed services. The houses will
average about 1.2 units per acre with wide
roads, underground utilities and mandatory
garbage pickup. There was no decision about
whether the subdivision would be required to
have a sewage system or septic tanks.
In a related matter final plat review was
approved for the 400 lot Rustling Pines sub-
division, also a part of the annexed tract of
land. Council member James Hinson had
problems with the subdivisions use of septic
tanks. Currently Talquin Electric has a
sewer plant in Midway that services cus-
tomers on the North side of 1-10. He was
told by city manager Paul Piller that he was
working with Talquin Electric on a way to
connect the two sections of the city with
sewage service. Piller said funding was the
primary issue.
Morris also said he was going to contact the
county's health department oh the number of
septic tanks that would be allowed in any
given area and report back to the council.

Grocer to anchor retail center


Piggly Wiggly, restaurants, specialty stores planned


by RON ISBELL
Times Publisher
Work has begun on the new Gadsden West
shopping center.
The new retail center will be located along
West Jefferson St. (Hwy 90) across from
Stone's Building Center in Quincy.
Owner Kevin McDaniel said the new cen-
ter will employ as many as 150 people when
it is complete.
The anchor store for the center will be his
Piggly Wiggly store.
McDaniel said the grocery store will be
modelled after a new concept offered by the
company. In addition to its more familiar


grocery items this store will also include a
"dollar type store" within the supermarket,
McDaniel said.
It will be the first Piggly Wiggly to feature
this concept in this area, he said.
The store will also include a Memphis
style barbecue inside the store alongside its
deli. It will also include a floral department
and feature McDaniel's claimed meats.
McDaniels' supermarkets have won 722
national awards since 1999 for its meats, he
said.
McDaniel said plans are to include restau-
rants, general retail and speciality retail
stores. The shopping center will have four
2,000 square foot stores and a 6,000 square


foot store in addition to the 27,000 square
foot Piggly Wiggly store.
Outlot space is available for additional-
stores or restaurants. McDaniel said he is
talking with two different national fast food
franchisers and a Mexican full service
restaurant.
Talks are on-going with a sporting goods
store, a major retailer and an upscale laun-
dry/dry cleaner.
He plans to open the store by the end of
2005.
McDaniel owns a Piggly Wiggly store in
Donaldsonville, AL. His family is the
owner of the McDaniel's Supermarket in
Sneads.

Making brighter smiles
Local children receive much needed dental care


by BYRON SPIRES
Times Staff Writer
Over the past two Saturdays
dearly 75 local elementary stu-
dents have received free emer-
gency dental assistance.
SThe students were chosen
from several hundred students
who received dental screenings
two weeks ago. The screenings
were sponsored by ACS State
Healthcare Solutions Florida
Dental Outreach "Making Smiles
Brighter" program.
ACS in conjunction with the
Gadsden County Health Council,
the Gadsden County commission,
and the Gadsden County Health
Department, brought dentists Dr.
Marcos H. Barrera of Tallahassee
and Dr. Anthony Polk of Wakulla
County to the Gadsden County
Health Department to perform
the emergency dental procedures
6n the students.
The doctors were assisted by
Tallahassee Community College


dental hygienist students and
their instructor Michelle
Edwards. Also assisting the doc-
tors were the county school
nurses.
Tooth decay according to a
press release by ACS is the single
most common chronic childhood
disease--five times more com-
mon than asthma.
In order to combat the grow-
ing dental woes of Florida's
neediest children, the Florida
State Dental Outreach Initiative
was launched in April 2005.
The Initiative includes semi-
nars for participating schools,
churches, and community facili-
ties.
The dental emergency proce-
dures are a continuation of the
initiative.
If you would like more infor-
mation concerning the program
nd other programs available in
Gadsden County please contact
Maximo Martinez at GCHC
director at 875-7200.

Spaghetti supper planned as fundraiser

Sherry Smith Fellowship to help local teachers expand their education


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

One way for students to get
excited about learning is for the
teacher to be excited. The late
Sherry Smith, a Gadsden County
school teacher and the district's for-
mer coordinator for ESOL (English
as a Second Language) was excited
about education. Smith taught in
middle and high schools in the
county. But it took a single experi-
ence while a teacher to make a dif-
ference in Smith's outlook.
,This is how Smith related her
professional and life changing expe-
rience:
"It was a trip to Mexico. I
attended an international book fair,
intermingled with educators from all
over North America, and strolled
through a conference center where
book vendors and famous authors
were stationed. William Golding,
author of "Lord of the Flies", was
one of those enjoying the casual
atmosphere so prevalent in Mexico.
I visited two urban and two rural
schools and talked to administrators,
teachers and students. During the
late afternoon and evening my hus-
band (Jerry) and I toured the coun-
tryside of Guadalajara, shopped,
watched artisans at work, and ate the
food of the street vendors or dined
in the finer restaurants of the city. I
returned with knowledge that could
never have been gained without
having made the trip.
I returned with a renewed enthu-
siasm to share my new-found
knowledge and experiences' with
students and teachers and my family
and friends. I believe that teachers
will improve as professionals when
they have travel experiences that
relate to their teaching fields."
"She felt so strongly about this,"
said Jerry Smith a few days ago:

Times Staff Writer

It may be awhile before residents
can travel along Ste\% art Street.
Commissioners failed to act on a
request by public works director
Gene Tucker for the $21,000
needed to do preliminary engineer-
ing work on the collapsed bridge
over Tanyard Creek. According to
Tucker the creek, during the recent
high rains, damaged the infrastruc-
ture of the bridge.
"The structure (bridge) has
failed," Tucker told commission-
ers. Tucker said the creek hits
the culvert at an angle and has
caused erosion of the bridge's
piers.
: The piers hold up a dome-
shaped culvert which is covered in
dirt. Asphalt is then laid over the
dirt.One of the piers has failed and
collapsed causing the street to sink
about 18-20 inches.
Tucker said the bridge needed
to be replaced. Estimates for the
bridge were given at about
$250,000.Soil bores are needed to
determine the type of soil under the
piers, which he thought were as
much as 50 years old.
City manager Willie Earl Banks
stated that there were currently no
funds identified for the replacing of
the bridge and that the staff would
need to research to determine
where the funds could be moved
from. Tucker said the project
would take three or more weeks.


Newly appointed mayor Sherrie
- Taylor who represents, the 'district-

unable to get a motion from the
board to 'start"thie first phase of-
rebuilding the bridge. She said
after the meeting that she intended
to call a special meeting once it
was determined where the funds
for the bridge would be coming
from.
Bridge money woes were not the
only money issue before the com-
mission. Commissioner Derrick
Elias inquired about the status of
All-Tech, a business that located in
the first phase of Quincy's business
park on Joe Adams Road. Part of
the funding to draw the business
into the park was a CDBG infra-
structure grant. There were stipula-
tions that All-Tech had to meet in
order for it and the city to qualify
for the grant.
According to Banks he has tried
unsuccessfully to contact All-Tech.
All-Tech is a ornamental gate
company that is owned by former
representative Bev Kilmer and her
husband.
City attorney Jack McLean said
the city could be responsible for
$300,000 if the grant is not satis-
fied. Elias asked McLean to
continue to monitor the situation
and keep the commissioners
updated .
In other business:

reading of an ordinance that would

ordinance by requiring vacant

*Commissioners were told that the
telecommunication bill before the
legislature passed in favor of the
city's telecommunications busi-
ness. Banks said that had the bill
not passed the city would have
been grandfathered in, but it would
have be difficult for the city's pro-
grams to survive.
*Banks told commissioners that the
remaining funding to complete the
driving range on MLK Blvd had
been approved.


restaurant, Chandler's. She liked to
talk with customers who were pass-
ing through Quincy about their trav-
els and their lives.
She earned a degree in Spanish
with a minor in English from Hunt-
ingdon College in Montgomery, AL
and returned to Quincy to teach.
One of the great joys, she would tell
co-workers, was working with
migrant students. She identified
with them because she travelled so
much as a child and she understood
their feelings, they said.


Smith was diagnosed with breast
cancer in 1994. She suffered a recur-
rence on 1997 and retired in 2000
from the school district.
"Sherry was committed to the
notion that travel enhances a
teacher's outlook and therefore her
students," said Maurine Daughan,
longtime friend.
Two teachers have been the
recipient of the fellowship so far. "It
would be a shame and a disservice
to teachers not to continue the fel-
lowship," Daughan said.


The recipient will take a trip that.,
relates to his or her field, and during.
the next school term will demor.-
strate the incorporation of the travel
experience into the classroom active
ities.
However, none of this will bi
possible if there is no money. Orga-
nizers of the spaghetti dinner hope it-
will become an annual affair to
make sure a Gadsden County
teacher can travel each year and
share the experiences with other-
teachers and 'students.

Sherry Smith


Smith and others were planning for
a fund raiser to replenish funds for
the Sherry Smith Fellowship. The
fellowship makes it possible for one
local teacher per year to travel as a
way of bringing more creativity and
vitality to the students.
But what is urgently needed now
is money. Over the past years since
the fellowship was established,
funds have been depleted. That is
why Smith's family, friends, and
those who believe in education
through travel are holding the
Sherry Smith Fellowship Spaghetti
Dinner Tuesday, May 17 from 3
p.m. to 6 p.m. at the First Baptist


Church Fellowship Hall in Quincy.
The cost of the meal is $6 and
includes spaghetti casserole,
coleslaw, a roll and dessert. People
may stay and eat at the hall or opt
for a take-out dinner. To order tick-
ets, call Chandler's at 875-1545.
Friends say Smith had always
been fascinated by travel. It might
have been because her father was in
the Navy, and the family spent a lot
of time moving to places determined
by the military when she was a
child. When the family moved back
to Quincy and settled in, Sherry
dreamed of travel even as she
worked in her parent's fast food

PINIONS


I can do a lot of things. I can-
not read minds.
Nor can I close my eyes, wig-
gle my nose, and tell what is
going on in the county at any
given time. Last week, as I
understand it, there was a ban-
quet at East Gadsden High
School to honor students who
have achieved academic mile-
stones. That's about as much as I
know about what happened.
Except to say that the media,
including the Gadsden County
Times, was soundly criticized
because we were not there to
cover the event.
We might have been there had
someone bothered to call and
inform us of the program. At
least we would have had the
opportunity to make the choice. I
might not have covered it, but
then again, I might have been
able to at least juggle another
event to get there and get a few
pictures. But we were not
afforded the courtesy of an
informative telephone call before
the hammer was lowered.
I can take criticism with the


best of them. I give it out so I
can take it. It doesn't even hurt
myfeelings. See, I've heard it:,
hundreds of times before. The
statement usually goes something
like this or a slight deviation:
"Where's the media tonight?
This is what they ought to be
reporting, not what a few unruly
students are doing. But they're
not here because that doesn't sell
papers." Then there is a loud
round of applause because each
parent feels (and rightfully so)
that their child's honor roll suc-
cess should be chronicled in the
newspaper as part of the history
and fabric of Gadsden County.
I called Mr. Roger Milton, the
member of the School Board
school who cut us down to ask
about his remarks. I didn't know
verbatim what was said, but I
caused concern because I knew
we were not notified. He
informed me that after the
awards banquet he was told by
the principal that someone had
neglected to inform the media of
the event. It would have been
nice if Mr. Chalmus Thomas, the


principal, had informed the audi-
ence of that little fact before they
left feeling that we overlooked
the affair all together.
It's not just the schools, but
they tend to bash the media for
not showing up more than most.
That's because they have so
many more programs than most.
If I worked a 100-hour week, I
still couldn't cover all of the
school functions that principals,
teachers, and parents think are
not only newsworthy, but worthy
of the front page.
We're not perfect, we strive to
be as near that mark as possible
here. We fall short and that's
when we catch it on the chin.
The consolation is that some
groups, individual citizens, and a
few elected officials appreciate
what we do and say "good job"
from time to time.
But no matter what anyone
says, whether they pat you on the
back or not, you have to be
proud of your own accomplish-
ment and know that you did your
best. So, if someone at East
Gadsden High School will pro-
vide me a list of the students
who were honored, we will be
more than happy to share that
information with our readers.
The kids really deserve to have
their accomplishments published.
It won't, however, be on the
front page.


If you could change one thing
about the way you look, what
would you change?
Would you change your ears or
would you want to be taller?
Would being better looking or
thinner be at the top of your list?
How about the shape of your
face or even hair back in that bald
spot at the back of your head?
I'm sure most of us could find
something we would like to
change about ourselves.
I have a small list myself, start-
ing with a complete make-over.
But, even, though you can
almost buy a new outside body, I
neither have the money or the
pain tolerance to undergo the
extensive work that would be
needed to correct all of the
changes.
I've actually tried a couple of
changes.Once, when I realized
that my beard was passing the
fifty percent mark in grey, I
shaved it off.
A true phenomenon occurred.


I did look younger, but there
was a downside to the missing
beard.
My friends begged me to grow
it back. That alone was bad, but
when total strangers would make
remarks like, "have you ever con-
sidered growing a beard," I knew
I had to grow it back
So after a couple of weeks of
being bare faced and shaving
everyday I grew it back and it has
been there for the past 17 years.
I dyed my hair and beard back
dark once. I did it for a part I had
in a Quincy Music Theatre show.
It generated a lot of comments
about how much younger I
looked, but the upkeep was more
than I was willing to put into it.
Grey roots are a pain.
Isn't it odd how when you
change something about yourself
people will make comments like
that. Gosh I must have really
looked old.
Sadly my hair and beard even-
tually reverted back to the grey I


have grown accustom to looking
at in the mirror.
Maybe we can not afford to
change much about our looks, but
we can change things about our-
selves.
And you are never too young
to make those changes.
I made a decision that I have
stuck with all of my life. I saw a
man mistreat and belittle some-
one.
That incident had a great
impact on me, not that I was some
kind of a bully, but I certainly was
not an angel either.
I made up my mind that day at
the ripe age of twelve that I would
never treat people, that way.
Nor are you too old to make
changes.
I knew an old man that had the
reputation of being a coarse and
hateful person. But, I saw that
same old man change and become
a loving and caring person.
When it is all said and done, we
should change the things about
ourselves that will make us a bet-
ter person, not necessarily the
things that make us better look-
ing.
And besides, it's a lot cheaper.
On the subject of changing
things about other people, well,
that's another story.


Boyd calls for a fiscally responsible budget

Budget Resolution Makes Deficit Worse, Fails to Include Any Meaningful Reform


by Congressman Allen Boyd The national debt has soared
over $2 trillion under the
Congressman Allen Boyd watch of the current adminis-
(J)-North Florida) has criti- tration, with trillions more

for bringing a budget resolu- under current policies. The
tion to the floor that worsens 12 Step Reform Plan is based
the deficit and fails to include on the Blue Dogs' commitment
ajpy meaningful reform. Boyd, to solving growing fiscal prob-
ajong with his colleagues in lems facing our country, and
the Blue Dog Coalition, its.provisions include:
unveiled the Blue Dog 12-Step
Reform Plan in February, Require a balanced budget

budgetary woes."




riise offered today.
I "We must step forward and
s'op the reckless fiscal poli-
ies that are digging us deeper
into the deficit hole," said
Boyd. "The budget resolution
riakes significant cuts in
domestic priorities like educa-
tion, law enforcement, jobs,
transportation and Medicaid,
while at the same time increas-
ing our federal deficit. No
budget should call for these
klinds of sacrifices from the
American people without the
glimpse of a better financial
outlook for our country. The
12 step budget plan will get
the country back on the path to
a balanced budget and ensure a
lealthyeconomy for our fami-
lies, farms and businesses in
the coming years."

their fiscal house in order

the bills it is voting on

* Require honest cost esti-

gress votes on


* Make sure new bills fit the':

* Make Congress do a better
job of keeping tabs on govern-
ment programs

As a leader of the conser-
vative Blue Dog Democrats,
Boyd is a proponent of fiscal
responsibility in Washington,
D.C. Since its inception in
1994, the Blue Dogs have
been the leading voice in Con-
gress on the need for reason-
able, common sense solutions
to" our nation's budgetary
woes. The Coalition has
focused this year on fixing a
broken process that allows our
nation to run deficits exceed-
ing $400 billion a year, much
of which is borrowed from
foreign nations like. China and
Japan.
The Blue Dog's call for
bipartisan action on the
budget comes as the Blue Dog.
12-Step Reform Plan has been
praised by several organiza-
tions from both sides of the
aisle dedicated to fiscal
responsibility, including The
Heritage Foundation, Cen-
trists.org; Citizens Against
Government Waste, National
Taxpayers Union, and Taxpay-
ers for Common Sense.

Happy with changes.

Dear Editor,

It would appear as if there is
only one side to the story of who
runs the county. As long as Watson
ran the county it was ok for him to
tell county directors to discipline
and fire employees. But when
Commissioner Holt asked the
interim manager and a director to
take care of the problem where
employees were not treated fairly
then Watson has a problem. At
least Commissioner Holt asked for
fairness instead of asking for direc-
tors to follow racial favoritism as
has been done by commissioners
in the past. Mr. Watson "turn
around can be hell"!
Commissioner Watson stayed in
the planning directors office until
he, got Timmons Road paved for


his benefit. He and his friends also
got a road paving list in place that
is unfair to some of the other dis-
tricts. Now Watson thinks all these
wrong doings are ok.
What is fair for one employee Mr.
Watson is fair for all employees.
The people are ready for a change
and that is why they voted for a
change. If the old employees want
to keep the old ways then they
need to go to another county where
they can take over. If the commis-
sioners, directors, and employees
want to keep discriminating as
they did in the past then they need
to be fired, because Gadsden
County is improving and will
never be the same again. Commis-
sioner Holt keep letting the man-
ager know what the citizens' needs
are and we will solve the rest at the
voting polls.

Wrong snake !

Dear Editor,

The snake pictured on the opin-
ion page of last week's paper is a
banded watersnake (Nerodia Fas-
ciata), a completely harmless non-
venomous species. It really doesn't
look anything like the poisonous
cottonmouth which has a heavier
body and a larger head that is
angular and much thicker than the
neck. Banded watersnakes eat
frogs and fish and would rather
flee than'fight. Watersnakes are
.among God's many splendid cre-
ations and I hope Mr. Spires did
not take it upon himself to kill this
one.

"Cha-ching" minimum wage


increase helps local employees


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

For a lot of people in Florida -
almost 400,000 last Monday
meant a dollar more per hour if
they work for minimum wage.
The state's hourly wage went up
from $5.15 per hour to $6.15 per
hour at midnight May 1.
That was music to the ears of
19-year-old Cynthia Conner of
Liberty County. The extra dollar
will help buy gas to get from
home to work at Quincy IGA
each day. She also has a car pay-
ment and buys her own clothes.
"I'm just happy we're getting a
little more. Every little bit
helps," she said..
The increase in minimum
wage is the result of a constitu-
tional amendment passed by vot-
ers in November.
Another young woman, who
works at a fast food restaurant
and asked not to be identified,
said she really needs the extra
dollar per hour added to her pay-
check because she is saving for
college. "The manager said after
three or four weeks, he could
probably bring me on full time.
That will really help," she said. -
Roy Moore, IGA store direc-
tor, said Conner probably won't
be making minimum wage much
longer either. "Most of our
employees already make more
than minimum wage so it (the


new wage schedule) won't hurt
us a lot. We have to pay our peo-
ple more because we cross train
them and we want to keep good
employees," he said.
George Hackney of Hackney
Nurseries, which grows orna-
mental shrubbery, said the wage
increase hasn't affected him
much so far but he suspects that
in months or years to come the
pay increases will take its toll
and force him to pass the
increases on to his customers.
"Most of our people are year
round employees and already
make more than $6.15 per
hour...it will be down the .road
before it affects us," he said. The
company employs about 100
people.
Henry Grant, Gadsden
County's Agriculture Extension
Agent, said he hasn't heard any-
thing negative from tomato
growers about the increase. "For
the most part their employees
work by the piece or get paid
according to the number of buck-
ets they can pick. Where it may
affect them is in the packing
houses. But farmers do what they
have to do," he said.
The state is informing all
employers about the new mini-
mum wage increases. The infor-
mation is available on the
Agency for Workforce Innova-
tion website to help employers


Cynthia Conner


comply with the new law.
The law also raises wages for
workers who receive tips from
$2.13 an hour to $3.13. Employ-
ers are allowed to count tips
workers receive toward the min-
imum wage.
Employers who don't pay min-
imum wage can be sued for back
wages and also must pay dam-
ages equal to wages owed, and
can be fined $1,000 for each vio-
lation of the state's new mini-
mum wage law.
Those who oppose the
increase counter that raising the
wage would mean more money
for employees in higher wage
brackets and could result in loss
of jobs. Locally, employers say
they aren't looking at any lay-
offs.


Solis gets life in prison


Tony Solis


b\ ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

Mauro "Tony" Solis, the man
convicted last month in the beat-
in. murder of Willie Joe Stan-
lord. was sentenced to life in
prison last Wednesday 'in a
Gadsden County Court. Solis,
32. was convicted of second-
degree murder after a two-day
trial.
The jury found him guilty of


Stanford's murder which took
place at Stanford's Juniper Com-
munity home. Witnesses said
they saw Solis participate in the
beating that resulted in Stan-
ford's death. Stanford was
beaten about the face and head
with a shotgun- butt during a
fight that followed a day of
drinking and drug use. Solis' two
brothers are expected to stand
trial this month for the same
murder.


Phone scam hits northwest Florida


SThe Better Business Bureau of
North" est Florida is warning
area residents of a new. phone
scam appearing in cities across
the Florida Panhiandle.
Deceptive telemarketers are
calling to notify consumers that
the\ have been selected at ran-
dom to receive $100 to $500 in
gift certificates or gift cards to
companies including The Home
Depot and Wal-Mart. The caller


says the gift certificate is to cele-
brate the company's anniversary
and then asks for the consumer's
bank account or credit card num-
bers. The personal information is
then used to make unauthorized
withdrawals from the,individ-
ual's account.
Representatives from The
Home Depot and Wal-Mart have
indicated the telemarketers car-
rying out this scam are in no way
affiliated with either company.


Telemarketers from Buyer's
Union of Orange, CA, have been
linked'to this scam. The Better
Business Bureau in Colton, CA,
where the company is based, has
more than 500 complaints
against this party and has given
the business its lowest rating.
Consumers who receive suspi-
cious calls regarding free gift
certificates.or gift cards should
contact the Better Business
Bureau at 1-800-729-9226.


Airport receives $84,476 grant


by BYRON SPIRES
Times Staff Writer

The Gadsden-Quincy Airport is
one step closer to fulfilling its 15
year plan to expand hangar space
and lengthen the airport's runway.
In a press release Congressman
Allen Boyd, announced that the
local airport will be receiving a
$84,476 grant for planning needed
for the expansion project.
Boyd said, "This is a tremendous
opportunity for the people of
Gadsden County." He added that
according to a 2000 estimate by
the Federal Aviation Administra-
tion, the Gadsden-Quincy Airport
generated nearly $1 million into
the local economy from taxes on
fuel, local employment, housing',
and food for those using the air-
port.
The airport authority chairman
James Ashmore said the monies
will be used for a drainage assess-
ment plan and erosion control

which is required in order to pro-
ceed with the airport's layout plan.
He stated that the airport is vital
both in attracting new business to
the area and in times of natural or
other disasters. "It could be our
only link to the outside world for
receiving'aid and assistance,;"' 'he
added. The airport is also used to
airlift patients to the hospital.
Last year the airport authority
reported to the City of Quincy and
Gadsden County that the airport
was now self-sufficient and did
not require the assistance of the
local governments. "We are man-

cial support of the city or the'
county," Ashmore said, adding the
authority would welcome any
contributions that the two entities,
would like to make in supporting?
the growth of the airport in the
future.
Plans are currently for the.
authority to add a five-unit
enclosed hangar and 500 feet of
additional runway to accommo-
date larger planes. Ashmore added
that all state, federal, county or:

debt service funds are generated-
from hangar rentals, tie down and

Ashmore said that he felt the five

and the board's administrative
secretary had done an outstanding
job. "Gadsden County and the
City of Quincy can be proud of its
airport. It is a clean, friendly and
safe place to be. We welcome the
public out to watch the skydivers,
gliders, and various aircraft on the

Throw Away Your
Walking Stick
Paul F. Joyner, Ph.D.

Found man's walking stick.
It was found in the vestibule of the
church and the owner never reclaimed it
People leave a lot of things at church
umbrellas, handkerchiefs, scarfs,
pocketbooks, hats, etc. But this was the
first time I had ever known of anyone
forgetting his walking stick. It was a
strong heavy stick capable of support-
ing a big man.
As I thought about it, I decided
maybe it had not been forgotten.
Maybe it had been discarded the user
felt he would not be needing it any
longer. The fact that it was never
reclaimed seemed to indicate as much.
Could it be possible that perhaps
something happened to the owner that
night while he was at church similar to
%w hat happened to the man sitting at the
pool :of Bethesda? This story is
recorded in John chapter 5. :.
-You remember, at a certain. esLC .
an angel wouldd trouble the afterr of
Bethesda and \ hoe\ver got into the pool
firs \\ as healed. This man complained
that for 38 years he had been waiting
around the pool and it was not his fault
that others had someone to help them
and he did not.
Jesus asked the man, "Do you really
want to be made well?" There is an
implication in this question that the
man might not really want to be made
well. If he was well, he would have to
assfume some responsibility for his own
welfare. There are many people even
today who prefer to have someone else
take care of them than to care for them-
selves.
In this case, the man responded affir-
matively. Jesus said, "Then, get up,
pickup your pallet and go home." Jesus
was saying "Stop waiting for circum-
stances to get right, stop looking for
somebody else to help you, get up, roll
up your pallet and get going."
And, to his utter amazement, he was
well.
In my mind I can see the owner of
that walking stick hobbling up the
church steps that night. Either he was
ashamed of the stick or didn't want to
be bothered with it during service, so he
left it in the vestibule.
Maybe he looked around at the other
250 people there who seemed happy
and well. That might have inspired him
to be well.
In the sermon we had talked about
the power of God, maybe that increased
his faith in the great Physician. I don't
know what happened, except that he
left his walking stick and never
reclaimed it.
Whatever your problem is, God has
the answer. Go to Him in prayer and in
faith and He will help you find the solu-
tion.
We invite you to visit us at the
Berean Church, Chattahoochee, south
of the old high school building.
If we:can be of help to you, please call
Di. Joyner at 674-2633.

It's Time for a Change
Thank you Lord for another Mother's Day. Some of our mothers have
passed away, but \e all car have Jsis. He'll be with us until the end if
we will only stay on the Lord's highway, not 1-10 or 1-75, even though they
all belong to God. Isaiah 35 says and a highway shall be there and a way
to get on the highway. This is the way to get on the highway, it shall be P
called the way of holiness, not demonization. Are we striving to get on the highway ot
holiness? People have built beautiful in America and Europe and the through fares and thd
imperial Rom, but the Lord's highway.surpasses them all. Let us seek to get on before its
too late. Many travel the low road of self seeking and sinful pursuits, which leads to defeat
and we don't want to be defeated. We must keep our focus on Jesus. God's holy way i4
the way of purity and love which leads to etemal life. Are we seeking etemal life? Whern
we commit ourselves totally to God's will we are enabled to travel his heavenly highway,
Roman 12:1 says let us stay on the Kings highway. Sometimes Christians lose their
perspective and travel the low road of doubt and confusion. When they do their spirited
outreach is unlimited. We cannot reach the lost. Those who come to God in simple trusting
faith may travel the Lord's highway with confidence God is still saying this is the wayi
walk ye in it. Isaiah 30:21 says faith is the victory. Its time for a change. Lord increase out
faith, Luke 17:5. Violence, highways, automobiles and guns can be changed. W(
Christians'must reach out and grab it and let it work for us. Lord save us some more ss
we can help our youth. We cannot give up on them. Jesus is not giving up on us. It's timq
for a change. God is still in control. Pray for me.
Humbly submitted, Florence Mims Bradwell

Florida lawmakers
fund lifesaving
devices for law
enforcement vehicles
Florida legislators passed a bill
unanimously last week that will
help more law enforcement agen-
cies across the state equip their
vehicles with Automated External
Defibrillators, or AEDs.
The American Heart Association
worked with Sen. Mike Fasano (R-
New Port Richey) and Rep. Gus
Bilirakis (R-Palm Harbor), who
sponsored the legislation. Senate
bill 328 creates a grant program to
help purchase AEDs for law
enforcement vehicles in the Sun-
shine State.
An AED is a portable device
that's used in conjunction with car-
diopulmonary resuscitation, or
CPR, to save the life of someone
experiencing cardiac arrest. The
AED sends an electric shock
through a person's chest and
restores their heartbeat to its nor-
mal rhythm.
For every minute a cardiac arrest
victim is- not defibrillated, his or
her chances of survival decline
seven to ten percent. Brain death
starts to occur within four to six
minutes. At that point, there's little
chance of survival. Ninety-five
percent of Americans who go into
cardiac arrest (340,000) die each
year. More than 20,000 of the vic-
tims are Floridians.
"It is clear that AEDs save lives.
It is also clear that law enforcement
officers are often the first to arrive
at the scene of a medical emeir-
gency and should be equipped v. itli
these life-saving devices," said
Fasano.
"We know. that AEDs save lives;
but we also know that they aren't
cheap," said Bilirakis. "It is our

hope that this state-wide grant pro-
gram will help to accelerate the
deployment of AEDs in law
enforcement vehicles across the
state. And hopefully, someday all
law enforcement vehicles will have
an AED."
AEDs typically cost around
$1,800. The budget provides one
million dollars from general rev-
enue to the Florida Department of
Law Enforcement to implement the
AED grant program during the
2005-2006 fiscal year. It's a match-
ing grant program that requires a
twenty-five percent match for law
enforcement agencies in urban
areas, and a ten percent match for
rural areas.
Law enforcement AED saves
across the state in recent years
include:
* Three Florida State University
police officers used an AED from a
patrol car to save an ESPN video
engineer's life last October. He
went into cardiac arrest on campus
while preparing for the FSU-Vir-
ginia game.
* Three Bay County Sheriff's
deputies pulled an AED from their
patrol car and saved a woman vaca-
tioning on Panama City Beach in
July 2004.
* A Lady Lake police officer in
Lake County responded to a med-
ical call and saved a patient with
his AED in February 2003.
* Brevard County Sheriff's
deputies have saved at least five
lives with AEDs since 1998.
A study on the effectiveness of
AEDs in law enforcement vehicles
was conducted in Miami-Dade
County from February 1999 to
April 2001. AEDs were issued to
all Miami-Dade police officers in
1999. The emergency communica-
tions system was modified to meet
the requirements of a dual-dispatch
program. The placement of AEDs
in law enforcement vehicles
resulted in a twenty-four percent
survival rate, compared to a 10.5
percent survival rate, when com-
pared with historical EMS data.
The American Heart Association
estimates that as many as 50,000
Americans .could be saved each
year if AEDs were more readily
available in public. For more infor-
mation on the importance of AEDs,
contact your American Heart Asso-
ciation at 1-800-275-0448 or visit.

TCC helps nursing
shortage through
Nurses Now grant
In July 2003, the Agency for
Workforce Innovation awarded a
$140,000 grant to TCC for the
Nurses Now Initiative, an effort
to address a nationwide shortage
of nurses. The grant was admin-
istered through Workforce Plus
to the Big Bend Workforce
Development Board which
awarded funding to six of 17
competing regions statewide.
Tallahassee Community Col-
lege, one of six statewide train-
ing providers in the initiative,
has graduated 16 students in its
Nursing Education Program as a
direct result of the grant. TCC's
proposal to help with the nurs-
ing shortage included offering
evening and weekend classes to.
the 20 non-traditional students.
who participated in the nursing
program. The grant paid for the
students' tuition, uniforms and
books. Because of the financial
help from the grant, the partici-
pating students were able to
attend class while holding down
a family, full-time job or both.
The first ten students began the
regular nursing curriculum, a
two-year study which included
23 hours of prerequisites, in
August 2003. Last August they
were joined by ten additional
students, all of whom were
Licensed Practical Nurses
(LPNs). In addition to the spring
graduates, two more students are
expected to finish the program
before the grants financial sup-
port ends in December. TCC
will reach its goal of graduating
18 recipients of grant funding.
Tallahassee Memorial Hospital
(TMH) joined TCC and Work-
force Plus as major players in
the program by providing clini-
cal instructors for the classes.
"Trying to provide 16-20 new
nurses may not be a large num-
ber in the big picture," said
Sharyn Regier, Coordinator of
Nurses Now Grant, "but it did
allow TCC to extend its pro-
gram."-

COLD CASE from p. 1


found and brought to justice.
At 17 years old Terry left
Wakulla County for the Job
Corps He learned a trade and
worked in Tallahassee restau-
rants for about a year before
joining the Army. He spent seven
years in the Army. "While he
was at Fort Benning (GA) I
stayed with him and his wife for
about six months," George
recalled. The two, he said, were
close.
"In any family, some are a lit-
tle closer than others. George
and Terry were that way in our
family," said their sister Valerie
Brown. Terry, she said, could be
a loner at times as an adult, but
growing up he was always gen-
erous and kind. When he wanted
to, he could also make friends
easily. Too easily, thought
George sometimes. George was
weary of the friends Terry had
made in Gadsden County. He,
nor Valerie, liked the way they
"looked." His new-found Gads-
den County friends were not the
kind of people they felt their
brother should be around.
"Two days before he was
killed he came to see me. He did-
n't look good. I told him to get
out of Quincy. I told him that if
he. needed a place to stay he
could stay with me. He said he
was going to be alright," recalled
George. Two days later he got a
call at work and was told to
come to Tallphassee Memorial
Hospital. "They wanted me to
identify my brother's body," he
said.
Gadsden County authorities
show in a report dated December
16, 1994, that Terry Gavin was
shot to death as he slept in a
trailer behind the home of Floyd
Berry on Liberty Street in the
Sawdust Community. He had
been shot once in the upper
chest. The. only witness to-the
crime. Wanda McCray, told
.deputies at the time that she was


MEETING from p. 1


asleep when the incident
occurred around 3:15 a.m.
Terry had rented the camper
three months earlier from Berry.
"She was asleep in a chair in
front of the door of the camper.
When she awoke there were
three black males wearing black
jackets, hoods and white ban-
danas walked in the back door of
the camper. They said 'freeze'
and one of the black males shot
Terry while he was asleep. They
jumped a barbed wire fence at
the back of the camper and ran
away on foot," the report stated.
McCray was not able to identify
any of the men. The report stated
that McCray went next door to
get Berry and Berry contacted
the sheriff's office about 3:45
a.m.
Tommy Haire, who is investi-
gating the murder, said there are
some disturbing and unclear
facts surrounding this case. "I'm
going to be re-interviewing
everyone remotely involved in
the case. No one is ruled out. We
will resubmit all of the evidence
we have, his clothing and all, to
the crime lab for re-evaluation,"
Haire said.
While examining the scene
eleven years ago, deputies hap-
pened on drugs and drug para-
phernalia hidden in a junk car
near the camper. One of the
items found was a "crack" pipe.
That, -Haire said, might contain
never before found fingerprints
or palm smudges. "We believe
there might have been drugs
involved," he said.
"We loved our brother just
like other families. He may have
drifted a little, but we loved him
just the same. I would like to
know what really happened and
why," Valerie said.
If you have information on the
Gavin murder or any of the cold
cases profiled, call Tommy Haire

Office at 627-9233.

Munroe celebrates a Real May Day


The student body at Robert F.
Munroe Day School honored Mrs.
Carolyn May during the annual May
Day program on May 4. Lovingly
known as 'MaMay', she has dedi-
cated 35 years of teaching to R.F.M.
Mrs. May was born in Monticello to
Dr. and Mrs. John Bradford Brin-
son. Interestingly, her father deliv-
ered her. She is the only sister of
Jack and Bailey Brinson of Monti-
cello. She graduated from F.S.C.W.
in 1941 and taught first grade in
Monticello. She is quoted as saying,
"All 40 students survived!" Accord-
ing to Fount, Sr., "The Lord told her
to visit her aunt in Florence, South
Carolina and see if she could help
Him out with a young Tech Sgt.
who was stationed there in the Army
Air Force. Carolyn married me in
1944 and settled in Quincy to raise
our three children, Fount, Jr.,
Martha, and Bradford." She and
Fount have eight grandchildren,
seven of who were able to attend the
Carolyn May Day in her honor.
MaMay has, taught Bible classes at
R.F.M. as a volunteer since its doors
opened for the first time in 1970.
She comes laden with her home-
made cookies to share with each of
the classes she sees during her
Wednesday at Munroe. "The
important thing about MaMay is


that she does this for children all
over the county. At one time she was
visiting several schools in Gadsden
County on a weekly basis to teach
God's word," said Debbie Maxwell.
"Her stories of inspiration have kept
children in rapt attention. Guide
Post and other sources have helped
her make her lessons real and rele-
vant."
"Carolyn May is a special part of
our school community. She appreci-
ates children in such a positive way
that her faith in them and her mes-
sage for them is truly heard," said
Michael Knight. "We have been
blessed to claim her as the spiritual
guide for our school family."
Among the items presented on
her special day, noted as Carolyn
Brinson May Day, her grandchil-
dren donated a Bible in her honor to
be placed in the auditorium, and her
young elementary students gave her
a cookie. A dogwood tree was pre-
sented for planting in honor of her
"Dogwood Story," and citations
from Governor Bush and U.S. Rep-
resentative Allen Boyd were read.
Seventh grader, Georgia Davis, read
a poem written by the class last year
to honor MaMay. Students sang
.several songs and recited Bible
verses taught by her. Henry Rollins,
Jr. made a presentation to Mrs. May


that included a picture her with that
of his Bible teacher, Miss Josephine
Steele. The itorning ended with the
naming of the school auditorium in
her honor. A bronze sign vill be
placed in the auditorium which
reads: "Carolyn Brinson May Audi-
torium in Honor of MaMay for her
love of Robert F. Munroe Day
School, its children, and 35 years of
Bible stories and cookies." It con-
tinues with a favorite Bible verse:
Ephesians 4:32, and it includes the
May 4, 2005 date. "Her impact on
the lives of children all over Gads-


den County continues to make a dif-
ference. There are parents and pos-
sibly grandparents touched by her
gentle nature whose children are
now experiencing that same sweet
spirit," said Suzie Johnson. "One
day of celebration is nothing more
than a gesture to show our love for
her and to honor her dedication and
belief in the youth of our county."
Pictured with Mrs. May are first
grade teacher,. Master of Cere-
monies Debbie Maxwell, and Mrs.
May's daughter, Martha Sapp; who
teaches second grade at RFM.

On Saturday, April 23, the 5th
grade students at George W.
Munroe went on an educational
field trip to the Jacksonville Zoo-
logical Gardens. A group that con-
sisted of nearly 90 students, teach-

reptiles, animals such as the
Colobus monkey, apes, zebras,
giraffes, lions, and leopards, just


to name a few.
The field trip was a huge suc-
cess with a special thanks to the
following sponsors: Second Eliza-
beth M.B. Church. Rev. Charles E.
Burney, pastor, Quincy IGA,
Mimno Law Firm, The City of
Tallahassee, and donations by pri-

one, especially the many parents
who supported and participated in

Teachers are always' appreciated at HMS. But, during Teacher Apprecia-

pastry and a duty free extended lunch. The picture shows Miss Jhamilia Hill
(rookie teacher of the year), Mr. Mcgill (representative from Men of

The Quincy Police Department,
in conjunction with volunteers from
the citizens of Quincy, have formed
the "Check On Seniors Program."
The program is designed to identify
home-bound seniors who need
someone to check on their welfare
on a regular basis.
Tom Murray, community police
officer, says fifty percent of seniors
live alone or are at home alone dur-
ing the day. "From my experience
working with this age group I know
that a great number of seniors can
feel extremely happy to know that
the Quincy Police Department is
concerned about their safety," says
Murray. "It is important for the
community to support such efforts
so similar programs can be provided
.to senior citizens on an ongoing
basis."
This is the first time that a pro-
gram such as this has been planned
to serve the seniors, in the city of
Quincy. "The level of participation
it receives will determine the suc-
cess and long-range goals of the
program," Officer Murray added.

utlletin 1oarcrb continue Class Reunion Announcement


Attorney General Issues consumer alert


Attorney General Charlie Crist
has issued a consumer alert warning
Floridians about the unauthorized
solicitation of funds by Protect and
Serve USA, an organization that is
using the picture of murder victim
Jessica Lunsford to collect money.
The organization has used pictures
of Jessica and John Evander Couey,
the man accused of her murder, on
approximately 500 collection boxes
placed in convenience stores across
the state. The boxes also carry a
statement that asks consumers to
donate $1 to stop sexual predators.
Jessica's picture is being used with-
out the permission of her father,
Mark Lunsford.
"This is absolutely uncon-


scionable," said Crist. "To use a
deceased child's picture without the
parent's permission is despicable.
Consumers need to be aware that
this organization is not connected
with the Lunsford family in any
way, and appears to be doing noth-
ing more than capitalizing on a
tragedy that shocked our entire
state." The solicitation could result
in civil or criminal actions against
the organization.
The Attorney General's Office has
launched a formal investigation
under the Deceptive and Unfair
Trade Practices statute and is work-
ing closely with the Tampa Police
Department in that agency's inves-
tigative efforts.

" Long


By Joe Ferolito


A hit here or there may have avoided
the end of Munroe's baseball season
Tuesday. The Bobcats couldn't over-
come the pitching of opponent Eagle
View of Jacksonville though and their
season came to a close with a 3-1 loss.
What also came to a close was the
coaching stint at the school by Bob Bas-
ton who had led the Bobcats to a 31-24
mark in his 2 years there, and 2 trips to
the Region lA quarterfinals.
Baston had announced his resignation
effective at season's end because he and
wife Sandra have to move back to the
Pensacola area due to Bob's parents
health problems.
Bob was born and raised in Pensacola
and was a graduate of Pensacola High


were he played both baseball. and foot-
ball. He earned a baseball scholarship to
Pensacola Junior College but had his
career cut short due to injury.
He then attended the University of West
Florida where he earned his degree in
Physical Education. He also earned the
affection of the former Sandra Arledge
who was a Dental Hygiene student at


PJC. *
I first got to know Bob in the early 90's
when.he coached baseball, football and
basketball at Carrabelle.
'Oofrto know him a lot better when his
:oiStan. an outstanding athlete at North
i'f"da, played baseball for the Quincy
Pot 84 team.
Stan who was All-State in baseball at
North Florida signed with Toronto and
spent some time in the Blue Jays farm
system.
After Carrabelle, Bob coached three
sports at Taylor Count) for 2 Nears
before being Maclay's jv baseball coach
for a year.
He then took the Chattahoochee head
:baseball job for 2 season's coaching the
Yellow Jackets to the regional finals in
97.
Since then Bob has coached at Wakulla
and Port St. Joe, around a season at Gas-
ton School in Etowah County Alabama
where" his team won an Area baseball
title.
He teaches at Godby and coached their
jv baseball team before taking the head
job at Munroe in 03-04.


His dad's health has been a family con-
cern for several years and things really
got bad in Janurar) when Bob's parents
were involved in a head-on collision
making a move to Pensacola inevitable.
During the time I've known Bob I've
found him to be a fine professional with
a no-nonsense approach.
His teams are well prepared and he is
pretty much a stickler for them knowing
how to carry themselves where sports-
manship applies.
He also prides himself on improvement
of facilities where he has worked, as he
sees the 'condition of playing fields a
reflection on the coach and the team.
"I've enjoyed my time in the Big Bend
area." Bob says. "It's been especially
enjoyable to work with athletes like
And\ Pace, D.J. Turnage. Andrew Gay
and others who work hard to allow them-
selves to play at the next level."
Bob and Sandra who Bob says I'm
lucky to have, because she's the perfect
coaches wife." will still visitt the Big
Bend. Stan works at Premier Motors in
Tallahassee and daughter Liz is a RN for
Children and Families in the area.


-

Coach Baston
I have a pretty good idea % hat Bob and
Sandra are going through with the failing
health of parents. Things hopefully will
get better and maybe the Big Bend will
get the Baston's back If not Bob will be
involved in sports w wherever he is. bring-
ing his projection to making things bet-
ter to the program.


Bobcats bested by Eagle View 3-1 in region play Tallavana girls second


Munroe's season ends at 17-10


in PCC Elite Eight


by Joe Ferolito

Eagle View pitchers Jay Cren-
shaw and Paul Morales limited
Munroe batters to just 3 hits and
the Jacksonville team eliminated
the Bobcats from the State Class
A play-offs with a 3-1 win Tues-
day on the Florida Community
College North Campus in Jack-
sonville.
The Eagle View pitching pair
off set a fine game hurled by
Munroe's senior right-hander
Joey Higdon whose performance
kept the Bobcats in the game
until the very end.
Munroe jumped out to a quick
1-0 lead in the Cats first at bat.
Blake Holcomb doubled in Hig-
don who had reached on an error
to account for the run.
Eagle View came right back in
the bottom of the first when
Morales tripled in a pair of runs.
After.the opening fireworks the
pitching settled down and it was
a matter of anyone stringing
together enough base runners to
get something going.
Munroe did threaten in the sec-
ord when Clay White reached on
an error after two were out and
Whiddon Macon singled. Cren-
shaw got out of that and allowed
only 1 other base runner in his 4

Bobcats lost 3-1 in regional play Tuesday.


innings of work. That was a
third inning lead off single to
Andrew Gay who was promptly
erased by a double play.
Morales replaced Crenshaw in
the 5th and Ben Young's 7th
inning lead-off walk accounted
for the only runner to reach on
Eagle Views second pitcher. One
out later Eagle View completed
another double-play that ended
any threat and the game.
Meanwhile Higdon was match-
ing the two pretty much pitch for
pitch.


From the first inning through
the 3rd Higdon set down 8 bat-
ters in a row.
Jeff Brickle broke the string,
with a lead-off single in the 4th.
After a sacrifice Brickle scored
on a single by Nick Benelli that
gave Eagle View a little insur-
ance.
Higdon who got some good
fielding plays from Macon in
center field and Gay at short
ended with a 5 hitter. He also
struck out 4 while allowing only
1 walk.


"I felt Joey did a fine job,"
Bobcat coach Bob Baston said.
"He kept us in the game, but we
couldn't come up with a timely
hit here or there that might have
pulled it out for us."
Baston who announced his res-
ignation due to family health
matters coached the Bobcats to a
17-10: mark this year and a 31-24
record in his 2 years at the
Munroe helm. Both seasons
ended in regional quarter-final
losses.


Tallavana battled their way
to the finals of the Panhandle
Christian Conference softball
finals last week before losing
to undefeated Emmanual of
Dothan 11-2.
The Lady lion defeated Pres-
byterian Church of Pensacola
10-1 in their first game on Fri-
day behind the pitching of
Lindsey Hosey. Hosey struck
out 7 in the game and got hit-
ting support from Laura New-
berry and Crystal Daughtery.
Saturday morning the Lady
Lion met Central Baptist of
Pensacola in the semi-finals.
Central Baptist came into the
game undefeated at 14-0.
Tallavana put the first loss on
them using a bunting game to
get by 12-8.
Hosey again was the winning
pitcher fanning 5 and she also
had 2 doubles in, the game.
First baseman Rhea Roberts
also a key double. But the
ability of Tallavana to bunt
kept the Lady Lion offense
going and was big in getting
the 12 runs.

ual defeated the.Lady Lion for

Cinco De Mayo Celebration

A local school children's dance group, A Little Taste of Mexico,"
gave three performances last Wednesday at the Quincy Music Theatre.
Organizers said more than 700 students from Leon and Gadsden Coun-
ties enjoyed the morning shows. Several hundred adults attended the
7:30 P.M. show. Maria Pouncey said the event was the culmination of
many months of practice. The performances were narrated in Spanish
and English.


Local celeberties like Quincy city commissioner Derrick Elias, in the foreground were
out in force to support the celeberty mentoring program. photo by Byron Spires

Celebrity Mentoring !!!!!!!


The Gadsden County School Board's Host program held a Celebrity mentoring event at the
the school bus barn Wednesday Morning. Tammy Farlin, district coordinator for HOST said
the event was one way the school system could draw interest to the much needed mentoring
program. Farlin said that all we want from you is thirty minutes a week to help mentor a child.
If you would like to become a mentor please contact Farlin at 627-9651.

The scenes above depict
the agrarian aspect of the
lives of peasant Mexi-
cans.(top) Young girls are
shown as women in the
past as they cooked and
then carried the food to the
men working in the fields.
The ritual was a way'for
families to be together dur-
ing the day. (second from

cut crops with machetes.

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.
