County school bus driver had heated the bus and set out to pick up chil-
dren on the assigned route. The route would take the bus south of the
Quincy Ciiy limits to pick up children who lived in the area of Caner
Creek Road and Old Federal Highway. But this day was different. The
driver noticed something not quite right about a,vehicle on the side of
the road: a man was-slumped over and the motor was running..
The driver didn't stop but called the bus garage to report that some-
thing was amiss. A few minutes later someone from the garage called.the.
Gadsden County Sheriff to tell them they needed to send someone to
: take a look. When deputies arrived
Crek they found a small sport utility vehi-
i icle on the shoulder of the road: A
man was slumped over inside. It

what appeared to be shotgun

been assigned to Florida Departmentof Law Enforcement Agent.Brain
Falstrom. The two local investigators on the case are Larry Smith and

WGHS Class



makes history


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

Brian Hamilton was voted a senior
superlative in the first graduating
class of West Gadsden High School.
"I was voted most humorous," he
said. But there was nothing funny
about Hamilton Sunday afternoon
as he readied himself for the Bac-
calaureate service at a local church.
"I'm just happy to be graduating
period," he said. "It could have been
from anywhere." He knows what
he's going to do after graduation.
Hamilton says he will enroll in Tal-
lahassee Community College, then
transfer to Florida A & M University
to earn a degree in business man-
agement. "While I'm in college, I'm


going to take on-line courses on
how to become a sports manager,"
he said. Hamilton's plans, he knows,
are ambitious, but he's confident he
can make them work.
Soft spoken and shy, Elbony
Spears said she feels good about the
class of 2005 making history. "I
suppose anytime you do something
for the first time, it's making history.
I'm happy about being a part of the
history of West Gadsden," she said.
While the 2005 class is techni-
cally the first graduating class from
West Gadsden High School, it really
isn't. While the name and the mas-
cot and the colors have changed, the
new school will not be ready for

Commissioners
looking for solution

by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
Ashford Healthcare Systems, the
company that manages Gadsden
Community Hospital is six months
behind in rent payments to the
county, and commissioners say they
are sick of the company.
Ashford has not met several other
provisions of the lease agreement,
but attorney Paul Sexton said the
non-payment of the $10,000 in
monthly rent is the easiest to pursue
if the commissioners want to get thC
company out of the hospital.
No rent has been paid since Octo-
ber of last year, and a check
received in the past few days was
not enough to bring the rent up to:
date.
The other options include allow-
ing them to catch up on the rent,
find another management company,

Iglesias


wins TDS


honor
by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

Monday morning when Samuel
Iglesias arrived at Robert F. Munroe
Day School he knew about the
assembly. He'd won the local TDS
Telcom essay contest and was going
to receive a $200 check.
"I kind of thought something
when school officials mentioned
something about newspaper and tel-
evision reporters. I wondered about
all the publicity for $200, but I just
put it out of my mind," he said.
So, when Frank Holcomb, general
manager of sales and service at the
local TDS Telcom said "Samuel
your essay, "A Walk Down The
Hall", went up against more than
1,000 other essays submitted by
high school juniors and seniors
from around the country...I .am
thrilled to finally let the cat out of
the bag and tell you that you have
won the grand prize of a $10,000
college scholarship from the 2005
TDS Telcom National Essay Con-
test. Congratulations, Samuel."
"All I can say is that I was
shocked. I had no idea he was going
to say that. I thought I had just won
the local contest," he said. The
announcement made his father, Car-
los, cover his face. Minutes later
and misty-eyed, the elder Iglesias
said he was very proud of his son
and his accomplishments.
Samuel is no stranger to academic

Emancipation Day! r.Rf T I

Gunn family gets ready to celebrate N- A I._


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
Friday, the 20th of May, holds sig-
nificance for African-Americans in
this part of the United States. As
history records it, that was the day
that slaves in this area were offi-
cially informed that slavery was
over.
Although the Emancipation
Proclamation had been signed by
President Abraham Lincoln in Janu-
ary of 1863, the news didn't reach
south Georgia and north Florida
until mid-May.
Further west, in Louisiana and
Texas, the news didn't get there
until sometime in June. That part of
the county celebrates a holiday
called "Juneteenth" in recognition
of Emancipation.
The news of Emancipation was
welcomed by the slaves with cele-
brations that included gospel
singing, dancing, games, and foods
of all kinds.
It is said that the women banded
together and brought out what foods
they had in the house and shared.
Fish and fowl were fried, pigs were
roasted and all sorts of vegetables
were served as neighbors and com-
munities gathered to share the news
of freedom for slaves.
Each year on the 20th of May, the
descendants of S.B. Gunn host a
community event at the family's
homestead on State Road 65 a few
miles from the Liberty County line.
Gunn's daughters said the family
always celebrated Emancipation
Day in a small way. The word
started to spread of the Gunn's cele-
bration in 1962 and it has grown
from a small family gathering to
thousands. Gunn never charged
anyone to attend the celebrations.
"He just wanted people to know and
remember why there was a celebrat-
ing," said Eva, the.oldest daughter.
LaTrenda Goldwire, Eva's daugh-
ter who helps with the cooking, said
the family will prepare fired fish
and chicken, salads, cheese grits,


baked beans, chicken and rice, mac-
aroni and cheese, string beans and
collard greens this Friday.
People start trickling in around 1
p.m. and the eating starts around 4
and lasts into the night. Eva's three
sisters, Dorothy, Gaylene and Vera,
traditionally fry up over 10 cases of
chickens and hundreds of pound of
fish with the help and friends and
neighbors who have volunteered to
help out over the years.
"We have been blessed this year,
more than ever, with contributions
and donations," Eva said. One man,

Correction
A story in last week's Gadsden
County Times contained two errors.
McDaniel's Supermarket has won
19 national and international
awards for its meats since 1999.
The story also incorrectly placed
Donalsonville in Alabama, not
Georgia.

Outstanding students receive accolades


4 graduates
to start college
as juniors
by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
Four Gadsden County high
school seniors will have more than
just a diploma under their belts
when they march across the stage
Friday night.
The quartet: M1u.iiil. Mack, Bet-
tye McKinnon, Jeremy Ford, and
Andrenetta Hinson will also have
in their hands Associate of Arts
degrees from Tallahassce Commu-
nity College.
"These students will be starting
college as juniors," said Superin-
tendent of Schools Reginald
James, during the Top Academic
Student Awards reception Monday
evening.
More than 60 students and their
parents were invited to the recep-
tion, where the superintendent
gave each student a certificate in
honor of academic accomplish-
ments.
First, James thanked the parents
for encouraging their children to
excel. "You parents deserve a
round of applause for all of the
work that you have done."
James said the honorees were the
best and the brightest in the county.
"Some of these GPAs are out of
sight," he said, referring to students
like Mack and McKinnon who had
4.40 weighted GPA, both Summa
Cum Laude, and Jeremy Ford who
was Magna Cum Laude, and
Phillip Kirkland, Terrance Roberts
and Maranda Sapp, all Cum Laude.
But while the afternoon was
intended for them to receive acco-
lades, the students flipped the
script for a few minutes and
praised their parents for "being
there for them."
West Gadsden's Valedictorian
said parents were as much respon-
sible for the accomplishments of
the students as the students were
themselves. Teacher of the Year
Yanseen Lei'n alo heaped pai'se
on ite" parents.,. and Mack and
McKinnon joined together to sing a
tribute to parents.
The reception was sponsored by
TDS Telcom, Quincy IGA, and the
Gadsden County Chapter of the
National Hook-Up of Black
Women.

Coley successor election

set; part of county votes


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
The recent death of Rep. David
Coley (R-Marianna) left a vacant
seat for District 7 in the Legislature
and approximately 2,700 voters in
the county unrepresented.
Two people have thrown their hats
in the ring to replace Coley. One is
Coley's wife, Marti, and the other is
Carl Joaquin Duncan, the man who
ran against him unsuccessfully in
the November 2004 general elec-
tion.
"A special election will be held


June 14. It will affect voters in
precinct 6, (Lake Talquin and
Wetumpka) precinct 7 (part of Saw-
dust), precinct 8 (Sycamore) and
part of precinct 12, (Greensboro),"
said Shirley Green Knight, Supervi-
sor of Elections. Early voting will
begin on May 30 in the elections
office. Green-Knight said sample
ballots will be mailed to all eligible
voters the week of May 23.
Coley made the announcement to
"complete not only my husband's
term but his work and dream" one
month after his death. She said she

Something' to do

I got a call from a woman a few days ago who said she
vas the mother of two young children. I think their ages
were 8 and 10, both boys. She wanted to know if I knew of
any summer programs that were available for her children. I
really didn't know of any in detail. I told her what I knew
about the summer program at the recreation department and
suggested she call them. I mentioned that I had heard of sev-
eral churches in the area that offered some version of Vaca-
ton Bible School. I also suggested she call the district office
0 find out what schools might have to offer.
That wasn't good enough for her.
Oh no.
, Then she proceeded to chastise me about why we didn't
publish a section each year detailing for parents the activities
available for idle school children this summer. I told her that
ter suggestion was a good one and said it was certainly
something I would keep in mind for next year. Either her
lids had gotten under her skin a little more than usual or she
jvas having a bad parent day, because she didn't stop with
Me and what the newspaper should do about finding her kids
something to do for the summer.
And the Quincy City Commission was next.
She went on and on about how, in the past, the city found
summer jobs for kids and the pay was good. Well, I
explained to her that times have changed and money is tight.
I don't ever recall the city finding jobs and hiring any 10-
ear-old children to work in any capacity. Commissioners,
he said, ought to do something to earn their money. I
assured her they did plenty for the money, but she wasn't
uying it.
I asked her where in the city she lived and her response
vas that she didn't actually live in the city but several miles
but in the county. Silly me, I then attempted to explain that
the Gity-of-Quincy -has no responsibility to find anything to
entertain children \\ho reside in the county. True. sixt\ per-
:ent of the children and adults who use the recreational facil-
ties in the city reside in the county but that's another story
or another day.
But back to the mom who was getting steamed with me. I
,ried to remain calm as I dodged her slings and arrows about
low people like me just didn't understand or care. I told her
:hat I understood her problem and that I really did care
because children need something to do. You know the saying
'idle hands are the devil's workshop"? I believe that. Then
she struck a nerve when she said people like me, who don't
have children, don't know what it's like.
S"No," I said, "I don't have children but I was once a child.
There was no summer school nor summer programs but my
parents found plenty for us to do like cleaning yards, cutting
grass, reading a series of books and all sorts of chores. When
tve finished we could go to the house of our two spinster
aunts and do the same for them. Before we knew it, it was
time to go back to school and were we ever glad.
i Each year when school begins the school district tells par-
ents exactly when school will end. On the calendar it clearly
states "Last Day Of School." Parents have nine months to
figure out what to do with their little darlings those three
Inonths when school is not in session.
I I asked her what she did with her children in previous
years and she said they stayed with their grandmother.
Grandma is not an option this year because she has found
something to do with herself that doesn't include babysitting.
Know that parents have a hard time juggling jobs and fam-
ly. But maybe they should prepare a little earlier for the time
hey know will come: summer.
i There are some things that this parent could have done
like research camps and programs. She might have to fork
bver a few dollars but that's probably better than having
atch key children all summer. I suspect she is not the only
-arent facing this problem. But I still say parents have to
Rtart early looking for things for their children.

Smokin '..


Quincy was smoking' last Saturday!
The grills were almost as hot as those men in aprons that
flipped slabs of ribs, dabbed sauce on chicken and tended
hunks of pork.
And the smells...from heaven! It was impossible to be within
a block of the courthouse and not have a hankerin' or even
maybe a hunger for barbecue. And, trust me, a lot of folks
succumbed to the temptation. Most all the barbecue was sold
before the day ended.
And the sounds...came from heaven with the barbecue!
Cherry Bess Branch, the first of the featured performers,
held the early audience captive with her soulful vocals. Then
there were Charles Atkins and the Blues Boys and Divas and
Johnnie Marshall and His Blues Buddies. All in all, enough
blues to satisfy most anybody's craving for a little Soulful
Saturday in Quincy.
With the resurrection of Quincyfest in its Blues and Barbe-
cue dressing the festival is definitely back! Organizers said
they were approached with offers to help with next year's
event throughout the day.
Speaking of those organizers, co-chairmen Alice DuPont
and Michael O'Halloran need to be commended for their
efforts, as do committee members Catherine Robinson, Cyn-
thia Henry, Stuart Johnson, Arleen Houston, Gerald McSwain,
Antonio Jefferson, Howard Smith, Ellen DeSalvo, Mike
Donohoe, Lee Garer, Willie Earl Banks, Stewart Parsons,
Susan Young Lee, David Gardner and Mari VanLandingham.
While the event is still fresh in our minds, be sure to tell the
committee members what you liked best about this event, and
if you have any ideas for expanding it, I'm sure they'd like to
hear those too.
For example, I'd like to see a "People's Choice" award, a
"Best Dressed Booth" award and maybe a Pro-Am division
(could we pair up Jeb Bush with one of our local pros?).
I don't know about y'all, but I think we could handle a little
of that good Quincy barbecue and some spontaneous blues
just about every Friday evening on our courthouse square.


finding Roads

Quincy's Tiger Woods

of disc golf...

Well, it is one of the rages that is sweeping the country,
but you haven't heard much about it in our area.
Disc golf is played almost exactly like regular golf
except you use a disc like a frisbee as your ball and instead
of hitting it with a club you simply throw it.
Like regular golf there are par three, four and five holes.
You throw your disc from a tee box or from behind a line.
There is a little difference in the holes, however. On the
more professional level, players actually must ring a bas-
ket. When I played, we just had to hit a designated target,
like a garbage can or metal post.
Some places have regular leagues and tournaments. And
believe or not there is actually a professional tour for those
that are taking disc golf to the next level.
My daughter Cindy and her boyfriend Daniel introduced
me to the game. We met a group of their friends at a local
park where I got my first taste of disc golf.

I gave it a go...
Even though I was a little apprehensive about embarrass-
ing myself in front of a group of people I didn't know, I
decided to give it a go and see what happened.
My first throw off the number one tee was a disaster. It
landed about twenty feet in front of me.
If you have ever thrown a Frisbee, you know they have a
tendency to come back to you and that is what mine did.
Like any sport there is a certain amount of skill you must
master in order to play the game. Disc golf is no exception
and to be good you need to master a couple of skills.
Like regular golf you need is to be able tee off and
throw the disc for long distances. Another is to make the
disc go around obstacles like trees on the way to reaching
the hole. And yes there are doglegs in disc golf, too.
I was not able to master either one and mostly just mud-
dled along behind the group searching for my disc.
Trying something new can try your patience by the way
and I spent a lot of time picking up my disc and throwing it
twenty of thirty more feet. I repeated that scenario often
during the game. After awhile I wasn't as much embar-
rassed as I was frustrated at my inability to throw the disc
very far.

Bright orange is easier to spot...
I should have known something was afoot when Cindy
gave me a bright orange disc to play with; they are cer-
tainly easier to spot in the woods by the way.
For those that have played regular golf, the disc is made
of unbreakable plastic and can be thrown down often in fits
of anger and frustration. Well, that's what I heard.
We spent about two and half hours climbing up and
down hills in this nice little park playing disc golf. By the
end I was tired, but my game had slightly improved and I
was able to start throwing the disc a little straighter and
longer.
I don't know if it was because I was actually getting bet-
ter or tired of zig-zagging across the park in my attempt to
hit a narrow pipe or some beat up old garbage can. I am
sure it was probably a combination of both.
I was given some good advice in the early part of the
game that I heeded to very well. The park was full of peo-
ple walking their dogs carrying small plastic bags. I was
warned not to attempt to throw my disc in the garbage can,
but instead to hit the side of the can. Retrieving the disc
after ringing the can I was told could net more than just my
disc. Ringing the can was the least of my problems, but I
did not want to say that, so I just thanked them for the good
advice.
I had a'great time, and met some very interesting people
as well.

The next level...
The beauty of the game is that it can be played almost
anywhere and at any skill level. So, I'm thinking about
taking my game to the next level. How will I do that?
Practice, practice, practice.

I'm telling you that in case you happen to drive by our
office and see me throwing a bright orange disc at the
dumpster out back.









Gadsden County Times May 19, 2005 5,


County fairs well in 2005 session Free dntalcarfor
those who qualify


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

When the 2005 Legislature ended
two weeks ago with the passage of a
$63 billion state budget Gadsden
County received the following appro-
priations. Sen. Al Lawson said North
Florida did very well this year in the
state budget:
*Focused Community Oriented
Policing Program-$50,000
*Community Park-$50,000
*Hill Top East-$150,000
*Hill Top West-$200,000
*Robert F Nealy II Park (Quincy)-
$200,000
*Robertsville Community Park-
$154,500
*St. John Community-$144,800
*Sunset Park (Quincy)-$200,000
*CR 65 to SR 12 GA (resurfacing)-


$1.199,229
*SR 63 (US 27)North to SR 159
(resurfacing)-$4.108.883
*Adults with Disabilities Fund-
$539,678
*Gadsden Correctional facility-
$100,000
*City of Gretna(Sewer)-$100,000
*Public Schools Workforce Ed.
Performance based-$5,927
*Public Schools Workforce Ed.
Program-$625,210
Also close to home is the Aug. 1,
2005, 3.6% pay increase for all state
employees. This will be one of the
highest pay increases for state employ-
ees in over 20 years. In addition there
is a 2% compression pay raise for cor-
rectional officers who have more than
five years of service.
Lawson said there were two major
disappointments this year. The per


diem bill and the health insurance sub-
sidy bill failed to pass. "I promise to
work on both of these issues during the
summer and bring them back to the
Legislature next year," Lawson said.
The per diem would pay state
employees more for travel expenses
and the insurance subsidy would help
offset rising health insurance premi-
ums.
Other budgeted items included a
six percent increase in student fund-
ing, totalling more than $1.3 billion,
raised mostly from local property
taxes. The Sparsity Supplement which
is funding for qualified small school
districts was increased to $35 million
and a 5 percent increase for in-state
undergraduate students.
"Overall I am very pleased with
this year's session and budget that
were passed," Lawson said.

Directions to the Extension Office
are: Take exit 26 off I-10 and come into
Quincy. Turn left at the second light
which is US 90 West. The Extension
Office is about 1 mile from the intersec-
tion on the right. There is a sign by the
highway William M. Inman Agricul-
tural Center.
The primary goal of the Entrepre-


neurial Rural Business Development
Project (ERBDP) is to facilitate sustain-
able business and economic develop-
ment in six selected rural counties in
North Florida who have the most eco-
nomic need. These counties are Cal-
houn, Gadsden, Hamilton, Madison,
Jackson and Liberty. These counties rep-
resent a microcosm of the economic and
social problems facing rural areas of
America. Gadsden and Jackson counties
are enterprise communities, while Gads-
den and Madison counties are also
Champion Communities and Florida
Enterprise Zones. Florida Governor Jeb
Bush designated each of the six counties
"Rural Area of Critical Economic Con-
cern".
ERBDP'S continued success is due
to demonstrated commitment to provide
tangible inputs and outputs that yield
significant impact to rural residents and
their communities in establishing and
expanding small businesses, coopera-


tives, non-profits and alternative indus-
tries.
Project Inputs:
*Information dissemination
*Facilitating cooperative development
for exotic mushroom and goat produc-
ers
*Facilitating adoption of alternative
farm enterprise (exotic' mushroom &
goat) through demonstration workshops
and information dissemination
*Writing business plans
*Preparing non-profit and tax-exempt
applications
*Preparing Limited Liability Applica-
tions (Articles of Agreement and Arti-
cles of Organization)
*Creating curriculum modules for alter-
native farm enterprises
*Identification and dissemination of
funding information
*Establishing cooperative partnerships
*Facilitating peer-to-peer mentoring
and coaching

It's Time for a Change
Dear heavenly Father, we know you still sit high, you still look low. Psalm
34: Your eyes are in every place beholding the, evil and the good. So help
your people to present our bodies unto you as a living sacrifice unto you.
Holy and excepted by you that must be our reasonable service daily. T
Roman 12:1 K.J.V. We realize our vessels must be dean, you will not fill .
dirty vessels. Wash us over again in your precious blood. Wash us again and again until we
really believe its time to reach out and reclaim the lost for Christ. The blind cannot lead the
blind. The both will fall into the ditch. There is only one way to Heaven, that is the word of God,
Joshua 24:15. Joshua told the people to make a choice. Choose you this day whom you will
serve. That should be spoken by God's leaders today. Its time for a change. With so many
gods present today we can hardly distinguish the true God. Pleasure gods and game gods,
we all need to choose the God that rules heaven and earth. He is still in control. He is lawyer,
doctor, judge, even a dietitian our eating habits is a lot of our problem today. We may need to
be like the Hebrew boys and put ourselves on a more vegetable, fruit, water and white meat
diet. Lots of problems today are caused by our eating habits. Try more vegetables, fruit and
water. Just stay full more on vegetables, more fruit and more water, and honey, syrup and
molasses for sweetness. God blessed us with all our needs. We are to watch ourselves not
abuse our opportunity. It's time for a change. Where your treasurers are, there will your heart
be also. 1st Peter 5:7-8. Be sober, this doesn't mean just alcohol and drugs. Be watchful,
vigilant, sound of mind, tddorte6us ;iligent, :aithful and honest to God and man. Be a servant
lk.e J'Sus. These things helpkee ssober. Arewe sober? It'stime foer hino'
Humbly submitted. Florence Mims Bradwell

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

see the new uniforms during two
school assemblies and the parents
had the chance to view the.uniforms
and ask questions concerning the
policy on Tuesday night. Both the
students and the parents .were very
receptive to the idea.

are currently.
Sexton informed commissioners
that Healthcare Systems CEO
Michael Lake asked for an exten-
sion to pay the full rent.
"We do something with this hos-
pital every year. Quite frankly I
have had enough. I don't think our
citizens are getting the quality of
health care they are paying for or
that they deserve," said Chairman
Ed Dixon.
"I have run out of patience with
this company. I don't care to work
with them anymore," said Commis-
sioner Sterling Watson.
County attorney Thornton
Williams told commissioners they
have the time to put in place meas-
ures to keep the hospital operating.
"The company should not leave un-
til they get the actual notice that
they -have acted in default. This
meeting is not that notice. Some-
thing could happen within the next
two weeks and change things," he
said.
Sexton suggested that the coun-
ty's attorney, manager and appro-
priate employees meet to come up
with a plan to make for a smooth
transition.

occupancy until the 2005-2006 school term. All classes were held this year
at the site of the old Greensboro High School. Builders say they hope the
new school will be "substantially completed" by July, meaning it will be
finished enough to hold classes.
No matter what you call it, this week belongs to the West Gadsden High
School Panthers Class of 2004. So, they donned their robes Sunday
evening, boys in black and girls in silver, and walked down the aisle for all
to see. Proud parents beamed as the smiling faces of their children radiat-
ed, and winks and stolen waves alerted parents to the fact that their chil-
dren were proud of their accomplishments.
Class president and salutatorian Shalanda Scott, became nearly too nerv-
ous to sing a rendition of "His Eye Is On The Sparrow" when she came to
the podium to perform. "Bear with me," she said, "this is the first time,
I've done this in front of this-many people." Gathering her nerve and with
encouragement from the audience and classmates, she overcame her stage
fright and got a standing ovation from classmates at the end.
"I think they are excited about being the first graduating class. These
children like to pretend that things like this aren't important, but I hear
them talking,". said Pauline Gunn, WGHS principal.
Candice Toussaint is the class valedictorian., The other top scholars in
the class of 53 members are: Noa Rivera, Mary Cooper, Claude James,
J'america Fleming, Jasmine Dudley, and Yashica Washington. In addition
to Scott, the class officers are: Johnnie Holt, first vice-president; Candice
Toussaint, second vice-president; Krystal Baker, secretary; Yashica Wash-
ington, treasurer; and Brian Hamilton, parliamentarian.
"When they look back on this week, I don't think anything will please
them more than to say they were a part of the very first graduating class of
West Gadsden High School." Gunn said.

success. He had a perfect score of 800 on the SAT writ-
ing and math tests. He is captain of the school's Brain
Brawl Team and a member of Team Florida at the na-
tional Brain Brawl competition. He is president of the
Beta Club and has been accepted at Emory, Cornell and
the University of Florida. He also speaks fluent Chi-
nese, Spanish and English. And he is on the school's
baseball and basketball teams. In his spare time, he
plays computer games.
Students who enter the contest are asked to write a
1500 word essay on their choice of several topics given
by the company. Samuel chose to write about the
plugged-in, virtual world of a high school classroom in
the year 2050 where a teacher can still instruct her class
when she's sick at home. Here's an excerpt from igle-
sias's essay:
"She looked around the room. 'Now for the good
news. I have also,' she paused to tap a few buttons on
her keyboard, 'I have just sent your extra credit assign-
ment to your nexphones. They are due in my e-mail by
the end of class. See you tomorrow, class!" With that the
screen returned to its blank state."
Samuel was very serious about the essay. "I would tell
him to do something and he would tell me that he was
busy working on his essay," Carlos Iglesias recalled.


Each senior at the school participated in the essay con-
test. All of the students write a first, second, and third
draft. The top six student essays are then judged by a
school panel. Samuel's essay was determined the best
essay and was submitted in the competition.
"I'd like to thank the entire English department.
Robert F. Munroe Day School should be very proud.
Samuel, because of your hard work and excellent essay,
your school is also a winner. More specifically, your
English teacher Sharon Lesseter was your sponsoring
teacher for this essay. So, she wins $500. That money
will allow her to buy new supplies, books, whatever she
feels will help make the .educational experience even
more outstanding for her students," Holcomb said.
Samuel's father said about half of the money has al-
ready been earmarked to buy a new state-of-the art com-
puter that Samuel has been asking for to take to college.
Right now his plans are to spend a year at the Universi-
ty of Florida before transferring to Cornell. "I'm not
sure what I want to major in right now. I think I will go
to school a couple of years before I choose something,"
he said.
This is the first,time in the history of the contest that
one school has won the national contest twice. Several
years ago, Munroe student Ashley Ivey won the nation-
al competition.
"You should all be very proud of your academic ac-
complishments. You are good ambassadors for Gadsden
County," Holcomb said.

The 39'ers choir brings joy through music


by Byron Spires
Times Staff Writer

"Make a joyful noise unto the
Lord, all the earth: make a loud noise
and rejoice and sing praise," the
psalmist said. Last Thursday morn-
ing that is exactly what the 39'ers
C i. oi from Chattahoochee First
Baptist Church was doing, making a
joyful noise.
The choir was on a mission, to
sing for the Providence Baptist
C ii... I's Thursday morning fellow-
ship. And sing they did. The
church's rafters filled with songs like
"When we all get to Heaven," and
"Are you Ready."For the congrega-
tion it was a walk down memory
lane of old hymns. The sweet sounds


of songs that have been around for
generations, like "The Promise of
God" and "Are you Ready" caused
some to pat their feet to the happy
sounds of a good gospel tune.
One tune, an old sacred harp style
song, "Down By the River to Pray",
was reminiscent of the days of
shaped notes and harmony singing.
The song style was reintroduced in
recent movies like "O, Brother
Where Art Thou?" and "Cold Moun-
tain", and for some brought back
memories of a time past when Prov-
idence wasn't just a crossroads, but a
thriving little community.
The 22 member choir ranging in
age from 60-93 has been at its "mis-
sion," director Geneva Burch said
since 1974. One choir member,


Mary Watson, is a charter member of
the choir and still singing. E v e r y
month they visit other churches,
nursing homes and retirement homes
to share their love of spiritual music,
Burch said.
The choir meets every Thursday
morning in Chattahoochee at 11 a.m.
at the First Baptist Church for prac-
tice.
If you would like to find out more
about the choir you can contact her
at 229-662-2916 or the choir presi-
dent, Eleanor Weeks at 850-663-

Project CHOICE addresses diabetes


Have you heard about Project
CHOICE; the project that gives
you a choice in the maintenance
and upkeep of your health?
cohw ^^HQlrCbeCcnte,^ !
Healthy Options: and: Innovative
Community Empowerment,
was established in 2003 by the
collaboration of Florida A&M
University, Harvard School of
Public Health, and Florida State
University. Select faculty and
staff, researchers, members and
leaders of the community, and
volunteers come together,
through CHOICE, to address
the health disparities that exist
in the African American com-
munities of Gadsden County,
Florida and Roxbury,
Massachusetts.
Today we want to give
Gadsden a choice in the detec-
tion and prevention of diabetes.
Diabetes is a disease in which
the body does not produce or
properly use insulin. Insulin is a
hormone that is needed to con-
vert sugar, starches and other
food into energy needed for
daily life.
The cause of diabetes contin-
ues to be a mystery, although
both genetics and environmen-
tal factors such as obesity and
lack of exercise appear to play
important roles.
Approximately 2.7 million or
11.4% of all African Americans
aged 20 years or older have dia-


bets. However, one-third of
them do not know it. African
Americans with diabetes are at
increased risk for heart disease,
_tcrig ;!,..li, ...,!! blood vessel
complications. ,, ,,
Other complications of dia-
betes include blindness, kidney
disease, and amputations. Often
diabetes goes undetectable
because many of its symptoms
seem so harmless.
In order to determine whether
or not a patient has pre-diabetes
or diabetes, health care
providers conduct a Fasting
Plasma Glucose Test (a test that
-measures plasma, or blood,
sugar levels after a fast) or an
Oral Glucose Tolerance Test (a
test that measures blood sugar
levels four to five times over a
3-hour period.) Either test can
be used to diagnose pre-dia-
betes or diabetes. The American
Diabetes Association recom-
mends the 'FPG because it is
easier, faster, and less expensive
to perform.
In ideal circumstances, African
Americans with diabetes will
have their disease under good
control and be checked fre-
quently by a health care team
knowledgeable in the care of
diabetes. If you have found that
you have diabetes, with the help
of your health care providers,
you should set goals for better
control of blood glucose levels,


as well as blood pressure and
cholesterol levels. Patient edu-
cation and health care team
education is critical You can
reduce yt..i-,r k-o.t i .... mplia-
t.tions if you are' educated about
the disease, learn and practice
the skills necessary to better
control your blood glucose
(sugar), blood pressure and cho-
lesterol levels, and receive reg-
ular.checkups from their health
care team. A team approach to
treating and monitoring this dis-
ease serves the best interests to
you.

Emancipation

Continued from Page 2
who has been enjoying celebrating
with the Gunn family for many
years, donated a banner to the fami-
ly. The banner proclaims 2005 as 51
years of celebrating Emancipation


Proclamation.
The Gunn sisters agreed to keep
their father's tradition alive follow-
ing a promise he extracted from
Eva. She said that before her father
died in 1992 he asked her to keep
the 20th of May celebrations going.
Last year more than 1,000 people
attended. Some from as far away as
Fort Lauderdale and as close as right
down the road. "Some people have


been hearing about what our family
is doing and they have been coming
for years," Goldwire said.
The celebration is also used as a
way to pass on the historical value
and significance of the celebration.
Eva said that it is important the peo-
ple know why they do what they do
and that it's not about eating and
having a good time.
"There is a special meaning to the


celebration and that is what we need
to pass on," she said.
Also, the Organization for Learn-
ing and Human Development also
celebrates Emancipation Day. In the
past, the organization has held its
main function on the Saturday near-
est May 20th.
This year they have announced
they will host their 16th annual
events May 27-28. The kickoff


event, a fish-fry followed by an
evening of family softball games,
will be held May 27 at 5:30 p.m. at
the Bobby Nealy Sports Complex at
the corner of Martin Luther King, Jr.
Blvd. and Atlanta Street.
On Saturday, at 8 a.m., at the Joe
Ferolito Recreation Center, the
prayer breakfast will be held featur-
ing the "Let Freedom Ring Gospel
Carrousel."


"We moved our May 20th event
dates to coincide with the Memorial
Day Weekend in order to commem-
orate not only the day of our Eman-
cipation, but to honor those who
have served and continue to serve
our country in the protection and de-
fense of all of our hard won free-
doms," said James Smith, organizer.

20 May 19, 2005 Gadsden County Times


North Gadsden


festival permit


request tabled

Also ask for detailed
information about
attorney's contract


by i !F DLP IHO I''
Tinmes l'lml,-r
The ,'.;-. ~.'. .uii:\ Conminissioners. at the .,iline of
board chairman Ed Dixon, tabled a decision on whether
to allow two young men permission to hold Sunday af-
ternoon p.iu ti( in northern Gadsden County.
The two, Michael Shirley and Joe Nelson, submitted
an outdoor ft't;..Il application to hold "Picnic In The
Park" every Stii.i.l afternoon near the intersection of
Glory and Hutchinson Ferry Roads on property owned
by Jimmy Davis.
Slir'.-" said the events, which will feature amplified
music by DJ Cadillac Joe and no live entertainment, will
be held every Sunday afternoon from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m.
The application, which was submitted April 25, said the
parties would run from May through September.
Residents in the area, including Henry Grant who lives
next to the proposed property site, asked the commis-
sion not to grant permission because of the noise level
and because the area would become congested with an
addition 300 to 500 cars in the area.
"When I want to get away from noise I go home. The
other issue is CR379A and CR272 where Glory Road
and Hutchinson Ferry Road come together. I'm tired of
looking at wreaths there...a few years back we had a ter-
rible fatal accident," Grant said.
"We propose to have a sheriff's carat that intersec-
tion," Shirley said. He said the cost of admission $3, will
cover the $30 per hour that will be paid to six off-duty
deputies and to cover the expense of insurance.
If Shirley and Nelson kept their customers to 300 or
below they would not need a festival permit, but be-
cause they said there may be as many as 500 or more
people attending, a permit is needed. The question on
the mind of Commissioner Sterling Watson was why the
application was accepted when the 90-day deadline had
not been met and the application was incomplete.
"You're not asking for a festival. You're asking for a


series of festivals. Mr. (William) McCord we shouldn't
really be looking at this. I'm disappointed that our
growth management department would bring this with
all of the gross inaccuracies. What you've done here is
create a huge gray area and I don't like to be put in this
position. You can't say the people on Glory Road should
have to put up with Cadillac Joe, Watson said.
Commission Chairman Ed Dixon said events like
"Picnic In The Park" were designed for a specific audi-
ence that might not include commissioners. He referred
to the Luau that was held in Gadsden County several
years ago after two people who spoke in opposition to
the picnic idea referred to the event negatively.
"The Luau has been brought up. It was designed for
some of us, but not for me. When it's something that
people want, they call it economic development. Quin-
cyfest was economic development. People cussed me
out about it because they said they couldn't get to the
bank, it inconvenienced us all. Let's not sit here and call
it economic development," he said. Dixon continued
that the Luau brought in one million dollars to Gadsden
County in one day and because certain people didn't like
it, it was perceived as a problem.
Commissioner Derrick Price weighed in with a sug-
gestion that the young men limit their Sunday afternoon
parties to two Sundays per month rather than every Sun-
day. He said his teenage sons attended a similar event in
Blountstown and returned home with good reports about
the people they met at the event. He also suggested that
the event last until 8 p.m. instead of 7 p.m.
"My concern is that you didn't have to come up here
if you'd stayed below the (300) limit," said Commis-
sioner Brenda Holt. Dixon said they were being penal-
ized for trying to be honest about the expected number
of participants.
"I understand that you don't like it. It's not designed
for you. These gentlemen took the opportunity to go le-
git. I'd like to table it. Give me an opportunity to sit
down with you and come up with another plan," Dixon
said. The new plan is expected to be presented at the
next meeting.
In other matters, Commissioner asked for a detailed
explanation of the attorney's contract. He said he want-
ed to know what came under the retainer and what was
considered outside that amount.
"It's wonderful when you get information, you get
smart. We used to have an attorney we paid $100,000
and we didn't get jack. Nobody questioned what our
previous attorney did. He didn't do anything. He sat
here and slept. We had to pay David Theriaque $75,000
to do work he couldn't do. We've got competent repre-
sentation now. He (Williams) hasn't done anything we
didn't ask him to do," Dixon said.
"This is not an issue about Mr. Williams, it's a budget
issue," Watson said.
"I want to work with you. I'm not here to bankrupt the
county," Williams said.

Good Crowd. Good


Weather. Great Blues


and Barbecue!


Over 3,000 people attended the
"Quincyfest presents Blues and Bar-
becue" held last Saturday on the
courthouse square in Quincy.
The crowd enjoyed the blues
music of the Charles Atkins Trio and
of Johnnie Marshall and the Blues

vied for the top prizes of the barbe-
cue cook-off.
Meanwhile, the kids were treated
to a variety of art activities at the
Gadsden Art Center. "The people
really seemed to enjoy themselves,"
said Arleen Houston, an employee
with the City of Quincy and one of
the festival organizers.

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.
