State gives


us tax-free

hurricane

shopping


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

In an effort to give Floridians an
incentive to be prepared for the
2005 hurricane season, lawmakers
have declared June 1-12 as a tax-
free holiday for purchasing hurri-
cane-related supplies. There will be
no sales tax on everything from bat-
teries to flashlights to generators to
portable radios. It is hoped that the
savings will send residents to stores
to stock up on supplies now instead
of waiting. The hurricane season
official. runs from June 1 to
November 30.
Last year, when an unprecedented
four hurricanes hit the state in rapid
succession, many homeowners
were without generators to provide
electricity or basic tarp to keep
belongings from further damage
after rains began seeping though
homes.
Gov. Jeb Bush signed the legisla-
tion implementing the sales-tax hol-
iday on hurricane-related supplies
last week. The bill was signed while
Bush was in Pensacola where peo-
ple still have not been able to return
to their homes. That area is still try-
ing to recover from Ivan last year. A
sea of blue tarps, according to
observers, is still blanketing parts of
Pensacola.

Search for bridge funds

may turn the tide


by BYRON SPIRES
Times Staff Writer

There is hope for commuters that
use, work or live along Stewart
Street.
Help is on the way.
In a special called meeting last'
Thursday night Quincy city com-
missioners approved two potential
plans to help raise the estimated
$300,000 needed to fix the Stewart
Street bridge over Tanyard Creek.
The pavement over the bridge col-
lapsed 18 inches nearly two months
ago making the bridge impassable.
Stewart Street is a connector street


for Martin Luther King Blvd.,
Crawford Street, Jefferson Street
and King Streets.The street serves
Stewart Street Elementary, Carter
Parramore, Gadsden Magnet, and
Gadsden Vo-Tech as well as the
school systems bus and transporta-
tion complex.
For Mayor Sherrie Taylor, who
represents District Two that includes
Stewart Street and the surrounding
neighborhoods, something had to be
done about the bridge. Ta y lor
said that there were four schools and
a 400 resident apartment complex
that were directly affected by the

City of Quincy commissioners
found themselves on a roller coaster
of financial woes in last Thursday's
special called meeting. The meet-
ing was requested by city manager
Willie Earl Banks to discuss the
tight money problems and a delin-
quent electric bill owed to Progress
Energy of Florida, the city's elec-
tricity supplier.
According to Progress Energy rep-
resentative Kim Futch, the city owes
back payments of $1,037,551 with
an additional $464,306 due May 31.


City finance director Neva Reed
told Futch and the commission that
she had made the May 31st pay-
ment. However, she added the city
still owed the $1,037,551.
Banks has devised a plan to catch
up the back payments and put the
city's fiances back on track.
His plan is to draw $529,000 from
the city's reserves and use the
money to catch up the Progress
Energy bills. Banks needed the
approval of the commission to
remove money from the city
reserves, permission that was not

Murder

A week

Jeremiah
Sanders' par-
tially decom-
posed body
was found in
the trunk of
his car in his
front yard, he
was laid to Jeremiah Sanders
rest at Sunny-
vale Cemetery in Quincy.
Three of his neighbors, said to be
first cousins, have been arrested and
charged with murder. Earl Lee:
Moore, 22, Tracy Lamar Wright, Jr.,
17, and Norman Winbush, Jr. face
homicide, and robbery charges.
Gadsden County Sheriff Morris
Young said the three plotted to rob
Sanders. "They heard he came into
some money from a lawsuit, They
went into his house with him and
Wright admitted that he was the one
who choked him," Young said.
The three tied a telephone cord
around Sanders' neck and attempted
to tie him to the ceiling fan so it
would look like suicide. "The ceil-
ing fan idea didn't work for them,"
Young said. At some point they tied
his hands and feet with his own
neckties and wrapped him in bed,
linens. Wright, Moore, and Win-.
bush are also charged with taking
about $38 in cash, a VCR, a cam-

Shephard's Mill


A passion for grinding corn


By Byron Spires
Times Staff Writer

Shepard's Mill on State Highway 12 just east of
Greensboro has sat there so long that few even notice
its white washed boards or close proximity to the high-
way anymore. They pass by at 55 mph and seldom
glance at the rustic old wooden structure.
It stands only as a reminder of a way of life long
since past and sadly, soon forgotten.
For one couple, Robert and Pat Dallas, remembering
that past, especially grist mills, has been a lifelong pas-
sion.


Their passion led the couple in 1988 to buy Shep-
ard's Mill and that passion continues today to preserve
the mill for future generations.
"We love the history of the grist mills and want to
keep their memories alive. It is such an important part
of our history," Robert said.
Shepard's Mill is one of only two operational grist
mills in Florida. A grist mill turns whole dried corn
into Southern grits and corn meal.
Grist mills, Robert said, dated back to the 1600's in
Europe and even though technology improved the

School salutes "Stars"


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
It was called a "Celebration of
.Stars" and was a formal recogni-
. tion of school district employees
who have distinguished them-
.selves throughout the 2005-2004
,.school year. All school related
r employees of the year, "rookies"-
;(first year teachers) of the year,
and all teachers of the year and
their guests were treated to a sit
down banquet Tuesday night.
"The superintendent wanted to
do something special. He wanted
more than a reception to hand out
plaques," said Audrey Lewis-Pot-
ter, parent liaison coordinator.
Before the honorees paraded
across the stage to receive their
honors, Superintendent Reginald
James said all of those selected
were stars. "I believe we should
celebrate excellence. We ought to
celebrate success," he said.
Dr. Patricia Green-Powell,
Vice President of Student Affairs
at Florida A & M University, was
the speaker for the evening. She
said the honorees had distin-
guished themselves because they
had "gone the extra mile" to make
a difference in the lives of the stu-
dents of Gadsden County. She
also said that the families and


friends of the honorees deserve
some of the credit because of their
support.
Each honoree was given a
plaque and a gift bag. "Inside
these bags are items that you will
need to pamper yourself or to help
you get ready if you want to go
out and be the star that you are,"
Lewis-Potter said. Each bag con-
tained items donated by local mer-
chants, such as gift certificates for
haircuts, manicures, facials, and
other "little personal touches"
Lewis-Potter said. Envision
Credit Union also gave savings
bonds in varying amounts to
recipients.
Teacher of the Year, Yasmeen
Leon, a physics teacher at East
Gadsden High School, was tearful
as she told the audience of about
200 that she believed that she was
sent to Gadsden County. "I
believe I was sent here. I want to
thank Jeanne Everett for taking a
chance on me. I was in Tampa and
I called her. She interviewed me
on the telephone and hired me,"
she said. "I hope I have lived up to
your expectations." Everett, who
was in the audience, said Leon
had not been a disappointment.
Students from throughout the
county appeared on the program
to showcase their talents;.:,

Finances from p. 1

forthcoming.
But, the request did not fall on deaf
ears.
The shortfall in the city's fiances
opened a Pandora's Box of prob-
lems for the commissioners.
Commissioner Finley Cook said
that he had met with someone from
Progress Energy and found out that
the delinquent status of the city had
been going on for a long time.
"How can that happen," Cook
asked Banks. Banks responded
that utility payments had come in
slowly and created the short fall in
cash flow.
He added that the problem started
back in November, during the winter
when many residents felt the bite of
high utility bills and the city .was
faced with a high number of resi-
dential cut-offs and late payments.
Cook said that he had asked several
months ago if the city was solvent
and was told that it was. Now he
said he understands that may not
have been the case.
"Management has misled us
-totally since I have been here,"
Cook said about the financial status
of the city.
Cook did not feel comfortable
drawing money from the reserve
without a way to replace the money.
Mayor Sherrie Taylor said she was
not satisfied with continuing to put
the burden of the financial woes on
the citizens' backs. She said she had
specifically asked for the billing and
collections for one month so that she
could review their and get a better
understanding of the city's billing
and money generated and had not
received them.
Cook had more to say about the
fate of the city's finances. '
S"There is more," he said, adding
that the city faced up to $350,000 to
repair the bridge on Stewart Street


and another possible $350,000 pay-
back to DCA if All-Tech (in the
city's business park) fails to meet its
obligations.
That coupled with the $1,037,551
the city owes Progress Energy gave
him the impression the city is going
in the wrong direction.
That comment generated a
response from Taylor.
"How do we stop the bleeding,"
Taylor asked.
Cook responded, "We have got to
reduce our spending." Cook offered
to relinquish his salary as a commis-
sioner to help with the financial
stress the city was currently under-
going.
No comment was made to Cook's
statement.
Taylor said she felt the city should
be looking at ways to increase its
revenue and mentioned merging
Netquincy with TDS and beefing up
the city's code enforcement as ways
to add money to the city's coffers.
A hand-out from Banks stated that
Netquincy had fallen short of its
projected revenues by $569,000 in
this year's budget, with actual rev-
enues of $239,000.
Ccity attorney Jack McLean
explained that not all of the reserve
money was available to be moved.
McLean said that the city's bond
issues required that a certain amount
of money stay in reserve and that
moving any of those monies could
jeopardize the bonds.
According to Reed only about
$2.1M to $2.2M of the $3.7M in
total reseries is available to be
drawn on. Cook did not like those
numbers anif said that the city look-
ing at drawing down half of its
available reserves was an unaccept-
able alternative.
Once the discussion turned to the
reserves some light was shed on a
possible solution to the city's finan-
cial woes.


A memorandum from Banks
states that the commission had pre-
viously approved monies from the
reserve to fund the Netquincy com-
puter program ($601,000) and to
pay off the city's business park
mortgage. That money, the memo
said, had never been drawn from the
reserve account.
Instead, the money to pay the two
debts was taken from what the
memo said was a float fund.
Reed explained that the float
fund was money generated from the
rebate checks the city receives
monthly from Progress Energy and
was not part of the city's budgeted
money.
Futch had said earlier in the meet-
ing that Progress was holding a
rebate check of $217,000 until the
city's billwas current.
The problem Reed said was that
in the past seven nmonlhLh he has
needed to dip into that float money
arid that the commission had used
one of those checks to buy several
utility trucks for the city. Reed had
not been able to replenish the fund
because of the short fall in revenue.
Reed gave an example of Octo-
ber's expenditures by the city which

ers at last

special called
meeting about

exceeded the city's
income by $300,000 followed by
November with a $200,000 short-
fall. According to Reed, the city
billed out $1.1M for May and as of
the Thursday night meeting had
received about $700,000 in pay-
ments.
Reed said that the problem was
that the city's expenditures exceed
the city's income.When asked by
commissioner Derick Elias if the
city would be behind at this point if
the money had been drawn from the
reserve when the commissioners
requested it, Reed answered that the
city would not be behind.


Hurricane season has arrived


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

June 1 marks the official begin-
ning of the 2005 hurricane season, it
ends' Nov .30." After ain iiprece-
deited hurricane se.asoin n. 201.104
experts are predicting more than 13
named Atlantic storms this season.
Floridians are urged to take the
following storm preparation insur-
ance tips:
*Don't wait until the last minute to
buy coverage. If you're covered,
carefully review your policy, espe-
cially its "declarations" page.
Upgrade your policy limits if they do
not cover the current value of your
home and its contents.
*Know whether your policy pays the
"replacement cost" or "actual cash
value" for a covered loss. May 2004
victims were shocked to learn that
,"acttial cash value" rarely paid
enough to replace a destroyed item at
today's prices.
*Be sure you know what your
deductible is for hurricane losses.
Most policies now have a hurricane
deductible of two to five percent of
the home's insured value.
*Consider your law and ordinance;


coverage. Many insurers offer a rider
of 25 percent law and ordinance cov-
erage that helps pay for rebuilding an
older home to meet modem building
codes Lei;,lation recently passed
1n..' C eq r- 1 i ii -ii L in ci cLnipanies to
.otfer.riders fior up to 50 pcirenti la%\
and ordiiinance C'o\ iage.
*Inventory your household items,
including receipts, purchase dates,
and serial numbers. Photograph or
video-tape your possessions. Keep
copies of this information and your
insurance policies in a safe place and
keep the originals in a safe deposit
box,
*Write down the name, address,
and claims-reporting telephone num-
ber of your insurance company,
which may differ from your agent's
contact information. Keep this infor-
mation in a safe place and make sure
you have access to it if you are
forced to evacuate your home.
*When a hurricane threat-
ens, take action to protect your prop-
erty. Buy the materials you need to
secure your property and minimize
your losses. Cover your windows
with shutters, siding, or plywood.
Move vehicles into a garage or car-
port if possible.


*Remember to withdraw money
before a pending natural disaster.
Normally financial institutions will
be closed at least two days after a
direct hit and ATMs could be out of

,*Ke....ij.eri.a such ca p."'.\ ood
:and pli tic on ihnd in case \ou need
to make temporary storm repairs
after a storm. Repairs may prevent
further damage to property and are
reimbursable by your insurance com-
pany as long as you keep all receipts.
Legislation recently passed pro-
hibits insurance companies from
non-renewing homeowners' policies
until 90 days after hurricane repairs
are completed, and requires insurers
to pay replacement costs up front on
a storm claim rather than holding
back money until repairs are com-
pleted or replacement contents are
purchased.
Nearly 1.7 million insurance
' claims, representing $21 billion in
losses, were filed after, four hurri-
canes inflicted damage in 54 of
"Florida's 67 counties.
"Last year's storms were a power-
ful reminder that homeowners need
comprehensive insurance coverage,
including flood coverage. Review
your insurance coverage and make;
sure it's adequate," said Tom Gal-
lagher, Florida's chief financial offi-

Elias had a problem with the city
staff not following through with
commissioners' requests.
"Im about to pop over here. If I
didn't know better I'd think I had
been hoodwinked," Elias said.
McLean said that the problem
had actually started in 2003 when
the finance director was told to
move the money. Reed said she had
been instructed to balance that
budget and not touch the city's
reserves.
Taylor felt the issue was insubor-
dination.
Elias asked Banks had he been
aware that the money had not been
moved and he responded yes.
Taylor responded that it was insub-
ordination on the manager's part and
according to the city's charter Banks
could be removed. No more com-
ments were made concerning insub-
ordination.
Cook made a motion to turn the
$217,000 rebate check over to
Progress Energy. He said that the
$762,000 had already been
approved to be transferred from the
city's reserve and that it would be up
to Banks to find the additional
$50,000 needed to pay the Progress-
Energy Bill.
The commission did not allow for
any money to be moved as a float
for the city's coffers.


Cook's motion passed four to one
with Elias voting against the meas-
ure.
In a related matter Elias asked if,
due to the city's financial problems,
was the new police department com-
plex still a possibility. R e e d
responded, "No, sir." Building
a new police station had been one of
Elias' pet projects and the commis-
sion had budgeted $1M to the proj-
ect.
Elias was told that no money has
been set aside to fund the new com-
plex.
Not giving up, Elias asked if the
project was "dead in the water."
Banks said the committee was still
meeting and plans were still going
forward waiting on funds.
Elias wanted to know if there were
any other problems lurking in the
future for the city.
Reed responded that all bonded
projects were up to date, but the city
had been slow paying some vendors.
Commissioner Keith Dowdell sug-
gested that the commission needed a
budget review. Reed agreed with
Dowdell, but no plans were made at
the special meeting for the review.
Banks told commissioners that he
was putting a hiring freeze on in
June and ask each department head
to find ways to cut their expendi-
tures.

Get ready for

hurricane season


Last year when Hurricane Ivan threatened to come ashore and
hit Gadsden County directly, some people were running around
like chickens with their heads cut off. Some of them acted as if
they had never heard of a hurricane, let alone hurricane prepara-
tion, or the destruction such an awesome weathermaker could
cause.
Even some of our elected officials were ignorant of the facts
about hurricanes. They couldn't tell residents about the prepara-
tions that were in place to handle such emergencies, because they
didn't know.
Another hurricane season is here. It officially began yesterday,
June 1. There is an abundance of information readily available to
anyone who takes the time to read.
Unfortunately, if we are in the direct path of a hurricane this
season, many people will not be ready. Not because the informa-
tion about what to do before, during, and after a hurricane isn't
available but because they are just too lazy to paylattention.
When Ivan was deciding which way to go some of our citizens
were, at that late date, wondering what was in place for the county
and how public employees had planned to protect them. Well,
there is only so much that can be done if a hurricane heads this
way. The emergency management people are there to help but
people need to look out for themselves.

Waiting may be to late

Don't wait until the last minute to stock up on canned goods,
batteries, water, and other supplies. By the time you run out to the
store to stock up, the things you need might be gone. Recently, I
was talking-to.one.of our elected officials-about the pending hurri-
cane season.and the prediction that this year \\ ill be as.bad as last
year, meaning that we are likely to be hit by at least five hurri-
canes. I suggested to the official that workshops be held to make
information about hurricanes available and what to do in case one
comes our way.
As unlikely as it may seem, with all of the radio, television,
and newspaper coverage about hurricanes there will be people
who will declare that they don't know what to do. Last year I
actually heard one woman say "I don't pay all that talk about hur-
ricanes any attention." For her information, all that talk isn't just
random chatter, it's talk that can save your life and property.

Read-Watch for hurricane information

My idea of holding hurricane information meetings in strategic
areas went over like a lead balloon. The official didn't think the
meetings would be beneficial because people wouldn't attend.
Silly me, I countered that if only a few people learned more, it
was better than none. We need as many informed citizens as we
can get. We need people trained in what to do in their neighbor-
hoods should disaster strike. I'm not talking about helping the
entire county, just the block you live on.
That's how things get done. The emergency people can't get to
everyone in minutes, regardless of what people may think. During
a hurricane, people will have to take care of themselves and their
families. At least they should learn how not to do stupid things
that will put the lives and property of others in jeopardy. Simple
things like securing your outdoor furniture so that it doesn't
become missiles for one and staying off the streets for another.

Make a list

There is a list of things people can do to make their lives safer.
My suggestion is that all of our elected officials use the same
efforts they used to get elected and re-elected to inform their con-
stituents about the need for hurricane preparedness. That would at
least reach 78.5 percent of the registered voters, the same number
that voted in the November general election.

A proud dad talks


about his daughter
My mother told me something when my two children were small
that I often think about. She said that when your children are
small they are on your toes, but when they are grown they are on
your heart.
I didn't understand what she was saying at the time, however I
understand it very well now.
My daughter Cindy graduated from San Diego State a few
days ago and I was able to be there to see her walk across the
stage and receive her diploma. She has worked real hard to reach
that point in her life and I'm certainly proud of her accomplish-
ments. There was never any doubt in my mind that she would
reach her goal of a college education.
She is now moving on to her next goal, a doctorate in English
literature at Wayne's College in Detroit, Michigan. As much
as I am proud of her for reaching her educational goals, I am also
proud of her for the person she has become.
She is a good person with a level head and one of the most
conscientious workers I've ever meet. She thinks on her feet and
will do the right thing by her fellow man.
If I were to tell you that Cindy and I had a perfect Father-
Daughter relationship I would certainly be stretching this story a
little bit.
Cindy lived with me in Carrollton, Georgia'for her last four
years of high school.
Were there any problems? I'll let anyone who has a teenager
in their house answer that one for me.
Were those problems insurmountable? At the e tme the\.seemed
bigger than the\ really were. but ,omeho\ we niaiioed to 'mud-
dle through.- : ::: i
Was I the perfect parent? Absolutely not. but I tried hird to do
the right things.
Somehow we managed to survive each other and stay close at
the same time. A miracle of sorts some might say, but a blessing
for sure.
As a parent you often second guess some of your decisions


letters

to the editor

N.O.P.E encouraged

Dear Editor,

Neighbors Opposed to Progress Energy
(NOPE) were greatly encouraged by the
avtions of our county commission during
their last meeting on May 17. They made a
decision to see if there was a way that/they
could regain control of the regulating process
concerning Progress Energy's plans to put
large high voltage lines right through the mid-
dle of Greensboro.
This decision effects all'citizens of Gads-
den County because it is in all of our interests


after the fact. Did I do that right thing, should I have done it
this way or done it that way. Or the worse one for parents, will
they hate me for making them do something specific like miss a
party to study or be at home at a certain time.
The answer is yes they will be disappointed they were not
allowed to do something they were insistent on doing and yes
they will get over it.
Without realizing it Cindy gave me the best compliment a par-
ent can receive.
Idid something right after all. something right.
While talking to one of her friends she told them about one of
our early experiences when she first came to live with me in Car-
rollton.
She said she had told me a small, but important lie. In other
words she did not do exactly what she had been told to do.
I always thought my mother might have been psychic when it
came to figuring out when I had done something wrong. What I.
found out as a parent was that it's just gut instinct and if it both-
ers you, there is probably a reason. I had that feeling and
when I confronted Cindy, the truth came out.
That confrontation led to some ultimatums that changed our
life together. Cindy told her friend she never lied to me again.
I can honestly say she was always where she told me she was
going to be and regularly checked in when she was away from
,home for any extended length of time.
She was an excellent student, graduating at the top of her high
school class and her teachers loved her. She worked after-
school a few days a week with me in the store I owned and her,,
last two years of school worked at other part-time jobs.
During that time she would call me when she left work, got
home or went out with her friends. I knew where she was all of
the time. To some that might be considered micromanaging your.
kid, but to me and Cind\ it was a part of our life.
It actually had a very positive effect as well. I knew where she
was and she had the freedom to go where she needed to g6,
because I knew she would be where she said she would be.
Did I do the right thing by confronting her with this little lie?.
To me the answ er is .simple. \es T did and she confirmed it when
lhe told her fri'end.ahout the experience.
Was it a life changing experience?
Certainl. At the time I didn't \ant her to hate me, but nei-
ther did I want her to grow up without any boundaries.So I did
what I felt was the right thing to do and thankfully it worked.
I love my two kids and am very proud of both of them and
their accomplishments. I've been blessed to have Cindy and her
brother Bob as my children.


to have elected officials who are account-
able,.at the table as far as Gadsden County
development is concerned instead of ceding
all regulation to a private corporation whose
sole interest is profit taking. This is doubly,
true when the power of eminent domain is
being used to take people's land.
We have long maintained that the state did
not mean for a power complaint to go unregu-
lated and that our government has a say over
the siting and permitting process. Especially
since the company has to take land outside of
the preexistingg corridor" which they thought
would shield them from outside regulation.
We have also maintained that, if regulated
properly, there are perfectly rational ways of
delivering electricity to other parts of the state
then sacrificing the city of Greensboro. Our
commissioners efforts are greatly appreciated.

Bill Hoatson

Greyhound bus service ends in Quincy


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

Quincy is one of 33 Florida
cities that Greyhound Bus Lines
will discontinue service to as of
June 21. Service to Chatta-
hoochee will also be discontin-
ued.
Greyhound officials .said they,
are "streamlining" service in sev-
eral southern states where the
company wants to "eliminate
time-consuming and costly stops
in areas where customer demand
is low to nonexistent."
Greyhound president Stephen
E. Gorman said, "Financial
results and consumer feedback in
the areas we restructured to date
have favorably exceeded our
expectations and significantly
increased our revenue per mile."
The changes cut nearly a third
of the state's stops, now 69 cities,
including those towns with lim-
ited service.


Greyhound is cutting 260 stops
in Florida, Alabama, Georgia,
Indiana, Kentucky, Mississippi,
Ohio, North Carolina, South Car-


olina, and Tennessee. The com-
pany said more than half of those
stops being cut have no outbound
ticket sales.

Murder
Continued from Page 1
corder, a laptop computer, a portable
CD player, two pairs of tennis shoes
and several pairs of pants and shirts.
All of the items were recovered
from the woods near Sanders' home
except the camcorder.
The big break in the case came
Wednesday morning when a woman
called Young to say she might have
been the last person, other than the
killers to see Sanders alive. The
woman, according to Young, would
not give her name but said she
dropped a friend off in the trailer
park where Sanders' lived. "As she
was leaving she saw three men at
the side of Sanders' mobile home.
She met Jerry driving in and as she
drove slowly out, she saw the three
go toward the front of the trailer
where Jerry parked," he said. The
woman was well acquainted with
the three men and Sanders. "She
was able to identify allof them by
name," Young said.
By 5:30 Wednesday afternoon the
trio had been arrested and were
telling authorities their side of the
story. Young credits the citizen's tip
and good work by investigators with
the quick arrests. "I told them that
we are a team here. When some-
thing like this happens, I put all
available people on the job. In the
two days before Sanders' body was
found, at least 35 people who knew
Sanders were questioned," he said.
Sanders grew up in the Friendship
Community, where his mother and
stepfather still live. His mother
called him "a good son."
His co-workers, eight of whom were
pallbearers Tuesday, thought very
highly of him. County Commission
Chairman Ed Dixon said it was a
tribute to Sanders' character that his
co-workers went looking for him
when he did not report for work or
call Monday morning. "How many
of you would have somebody look-
ing for you if you didn't show up for
work? Tuesday morning when he
still didn't show up, they called and


Cold Case
Continued from Page 1
around 2:12 a.m.
The Lounge is located on U.S. 27
north of Havana and was a popular
night spot frequented by people
from Havana, Quincy, Tallahassee,
and south Georgia. The spot where
Chandler was killed was about 50
yards behind the club, a few feet
from a learning center.
Shortly after the shooting Court-
ney Baker, 18, ofAttapulgus, GA
was arrested. He was booked on a
weapons charge but released when
investigators were unable to con-
nect Baker directly to the shooting.
Young said this is one of the cold
cases he definitely believes is solv-
able. "There were so many people
around and there must have been
witnesses who saw the shooter or
who know who the shooter is,"
Young said. The Chandler case is
one of 16 cold case unsolved mur-
ders that Young promised to reopen
during his successful campaign for
sheriff.
It was said that Chandler was
simply in the wrong place at the
wrong time. Young said that what-
ever the circumstances, he wants to


went out to Jerry's house again. He
was a good employee and he will be
missed from county government.
Sometimes we didn't know if we
worked for Jerry or if Jerry worked
for us," Dixon said.
Sanders was a heavy equipment
operator building and grading roads
for the county in the road and bridge
department. "He was a great guy,"
said Sanders' supervisor, Robert
Presnell. The 39-year-old Sanders
was kind and, according to Presnell,
"wouldn't harm a flea." It was Pres-
nell who called Elise Sanders Tues-
day morning when Jerry didn't
show up for the second day. That's
when the family contacted the
Gadsden County Sheriff's Office to
report him missing.
When deputies went to the home
on McDaniel Circle off State Road
12 near Douglas City west of
Quincy, they didn't find anything.
The house was locked. When they
were given permission to force
entry, and they still didn't find any-
thing. "There was no sign of a strug-
gle," Young said. Around 2 p.m. a
distinctive odor led authorities to
the trunk of his car. His daughter,
Jessica, discovered the body.
Not much is the known about the
three men accused of the murder.
None of the three worked and were
all thought to be school dropouts.
Young, when he was a School
Resource officer at James A. Shanks
High School, had contact with
Wright. He described him as a
"huge problem". for, teachers who
was often in trouble for fighting arid
skipping school.
Young sang in the choir Tuesday
during Sanders' funeral at Mt Zion
Church where he was as usher. He
and Sanders were classmates: the
Class of 1984.
Sander was described as a "nice
guy" and "the kind of person who
was a friend." Michael Brown, who
knew Sanders all of his life, said he
had an admirable work ethic.: "He
worked hard but he also had a sense
of humor. He was just a real nice
guy," Brown said.


get this murder solved. He \\ants.
She said,jo sol\ e the cold cases and
pi eL, en other murders from hap-
pening.
After her brother's murder, one of
Clifton's sister called it another sad
example of "black-on-black crime."
"Every time I turn around, we're
killing ourselves. We need to Stop,"
said Chantell Muhammed.
Black-on-black crime is not lost
on Young either. This week he is
attending a statewide conference on
the subject. "We have to do some-
thing. We have to do it quickly.
There must be some communities
who have learned to handle the
problem effectively. I want to learn
from them," Young said.
Still, the Chandler murder lingers
.and is a constant reminder to
deputies and agents from the
Florida Department of Law
Enforcement that there are murder-
ers walking free.
Anyone with information on the
Chandler murder should call the
Gadsden County Sheriff's office at
627-9233.

Bridge
Continued from Page 1

bridge being out and she wanted
something done to alleviate the
problem. She said she was tired of
waiting on the bridge to be repaired
and asked for some steps to correct
the problem.
The city is currently facing several
budget woes and cash flow prob-
lems, therefore the city does not
have the available funds to start or
complete the bridge project and
commissioners met to review the
city's financial problems, but also to
find a way of fixing the Stewart
Street Bridge.
City manager Willie Earl Banks
brought two potential ways to repair
the bridge. Banks had con-
tacted the Federal Emergency Man-
agement Agency (FEMA) about
possible federal aid for the repair of
the bridge. The bridge had
'been damaged by high water in Tan-
yard Creek. The creek had
risen during heavy rains several
months ago and washed out part of
the infrastructure of the bridge.
To be repaired, the bridge would
need to be replaced. Replacing the
bridge was estimated at $250,000 to
$300,000.
FEMA money can be used in some
instances for damage during storms
and Banks felt there may be a possi-
bility of help from that age nc.
In addition to FEMA Banks said he
had contacted Florida's Department
of Community\ Affairs andwas told
they would get back with him about
potential money for the bridge at a
later date.
Banks' second plan was a little
more complicated. As part
of his second plan Banks said the
$22,000 needed for the first phase of
the bridge replacement could come
from the Community Redevelop-
ment Agency (CRA); the remaining
money would come from two
sources. The utility bond and the
monies (approximately $89,000)
left over from the paving project on
South Shelfer Street.
The utilit bond \ as generated to
add utilities to "ares: surrounding
'Quincy. Using money from the util-
'ity bond drew .iuentiin from several.
commissioners and their concerns
over being able to use the money.
City attorney Jack McLean felt; the
money could be used for thd bridge
because it has a direct affect on the
utilities that.cross the creek at the
bridge. He said should the bridge
fail, it could disrupt the water, gas.
and sewage lines that cross the
creek.
The commissioners decided to
take 'the $22,000 from the CRA


U~~ R11 LE2 N Ak~ W ID~'
~1 576604


account and start the preliminary
testing of the land around the
bridge. When asked about using
the CRA money for the bridge
McLean said that part of the CRA
project was for the Tanyard Creek
Park and the city may be able to
include some of the work on the
creek as part of the CRA project as
well as the bridge project.
There was also some discussion
about putting the money back in
CRA if money could be generated
by either a FEMA or DCA grant.
Banks was instructed to continue to
work with FEMA and DCA in find-

For those who mite travel the
Road thru Ariton and have a
minute to spare, stop at Jerry's small engine repair. Mr.
Jerry will show you the world's record Shellcracker. A
whopping 5.3 lbs. caught in 1985 and was just beat out
by a Carolina fish 3 oz. bigger. He was caught by Mr.
Jerry's father, C.L. Whindom, in Merritt's Mill Pond near
Maryanna, FL. One day I will stop by and visit Mr.
Jerry's place and feast my eyes on a champ.
We have been having a very good week on Bass this
week, but the best news we've had is Todd Nedley, who
Friday took a 9 lbs. Bass on a Spinner Bait and on Sater-
day morning, John Cofty, Jr. took a 9.7 lbs. Bass on a
Booger Man Spinner Bait. They will be contenders in
any tournament with catches like that.
Those that mite have some imagination mite want to
try the building of a better life preserver. "BASS" will
pay $5000.00 for the winner, provided it passes Coast

SWAT season
The SWAT baseball season
got off to a slow start as the local
American Legion team lost both
their games in the Tallahassee
Baseball Club Memorial Week-
End Tournament.
SWAT lost to TBC 11-1 and
the Tallahassee Beats 7-0 in
games that were played Satur-
day.
Kyle Delvecchio had a pair of
home runs for TBC and Shawn
Bezwiechin drove in 4 runs with
3 hits to lead TBC at the plate in
game 1. Dayne Warshaw was
the winning pitcher. John Travis
drove in the SWAT run.
William Jackel was the win-
ning pitcher for the Bears in
game 2 and Cody Summers and


starts slow
Brian Basford had 2 run double.
Andrew Gay had a double for
SWAT.
This weeks SWAT action

anna in a single game Thursday
and to the Bonifay Baseball Club

A quick look at MLB


The Major League Baseball
season is divided into 4 parts
'pretty much. Memorial Day, the
Fourth of July, and Labor Day
are considered the dividing
points.
If the season ended at this, the
Memorial Day juncture, the
play-off picture would have Bal-
timore, the White Sox, Texas,
and Minnesota playing for the
American League title while
Florida, St. Louis, San Diego,
and Arizona would be trying to
become National League
champs.
Of course it doesn't end here
so I'll speculate about the other
3/4th of the season.
I think Chicago, Minnesota
and Texas can hold onto their
American League spots but I still
feel those Yankees will buy their
way past Baltimore to take the


projects together and he was noth-
ing but co-operative. Unlike
some folks I dealt with, he would-
n't tell you one thing and then it
would be another way when the
project started.
David is also a delight to be
around in non-working occasions.
He can share a story with the best
of us.
David was quite an athlete in
his younger days and stays is in


4th spot.
St. Louis is baseballs best
team and they will stay in the
play-off picture in the National
League. Florida has the pitching
and that will put them in the
play-offs. 'Sadly they have no
fans, and that may put them in
Las Vegas soon. San Diego will
hold on to their spot and make
the play-offs, but Bobby Cox
will find a way to take that 4th
spot from Arizona.
So I think that by season's end
little will change. 3 of the 4
teams in each league that would
be in the play-offs if the season
were over now will still be there
in October.
My feelings will probably
change by the Fourth of July
juncture.




good shape. He's still a real com-
petitor on his adult baseball team.
He has been with TPRD since
graduating FSU and his retire-
ment came Tuesday after 33 years
in the field. At 53 he's luckier and
probably smarter than a lot of us
that wished they could have
retired at that age.
If anyone deserves it though its
David. Here's hoping continued
luck and blessings to him.

Shephard's Mill
continued from Page 1
process, the concept of grinding
corn and other grains has changed
very little in the ensuing years.
The idea of turning a grist mill
into a commercial operation, how-
ever, is a truly American idea.
A need for a commercial mill
grew out of the rising population of
a new nation and especially its
growing cities. .
No longer were families growing
their own produce and meats, but
becoming more and more depend-
ent on another rising business: the
retail grocery store.
But it wasn't always that way.
To understand how a grist mill
operates is the best way to under-
stand its history, he said.
The history of Shepard's Mill
parallels much of the same history
as Gadsden County. Built ten years
after the Civil War in 1875, the mill
soon became the meeting point for
much of the surrounding area.
The mill predates the founding of
Greensboro and according to Dallas
the mill may have been a vital part
in helping establish the town.
"Many church meetings and so-
cial gatherings were held at the
mill's pond. It was only natural the
town would soon develop near the
grist mill." The Town of Greens-
boro is about a mile west of the
grist mill.
As Dallas said, the mill became a
focal part of the community as
farmers would bring there corn to
the mill to have it
ground.
Mill owners were
farmers as well and
ground their own corn.
'At first, the mill owners
charge a small portion of
what they ground as pay-
ment for their services.
Eventually millers devel-
oped a fairly good busi-
ness and depended more
on grinding other farm-
ers' corn as their way of
doing business.
It was during this time
that the mill came into
the hands of its name-
sake, J.L. Shepard.
As with any good idea,
the mill concept caught
on quickly and within a
few years there were
-eight mills along the Tel-
,ogia Creek. .

'(near Fort Lauderdale), came up
:with the idea to give Floridians tax
;relief for making hurricane prepara-
.tions early. He said he thought of
fthe idea after seeing people in his
,home county going into a frenzy
'trying to find batteries and tarps
i.when a hurricane, is predicted to hit
Florida. "I'm sitting here saying
there's something wrong with the
.way things are. There needs to be a
way out," he said.
Horror stories out of south Florida
,during last year's hurricane season
sent emergency workers and law-
mnakers searching for a way to help
alleviate the problem. One home
.supply store in Hallandale received
a shipment of plywood at 4 a.m. and
:Greenstein said the store was out in
I:thirty minutes, But plywood, a sta-
pple for those.without storm shutters,
tis not on the list. of tax-exempt pur-
chases. Plywood was not included
because some lawmakers feared
:there would be a stockpiling oflum-
-ber.

Florida. For several years now the'

past got its energy source. A con-
siderable number of the county's
ponds can be linked to a grist mill.
Today, of course there is electrici-
ty, but in 1875 there was only hors-
es, mules, people, and plenty of
water. .
In addition to its abundance of
fertile land Gadsden County has an-
other characteristic. It has literally
hundreds of creeks nestled between
two rivers: the Ochlockonee River


on the east and the Apalachicola
River in west.
Dallas can attest to the reason
even today why this particular site
was chosen for the mill. "During
the drought in 2000, water ran in
the creek. It was dry above us and
dry below us, but there was still
water running under the mill." Dal-
las said he believes a deep spring

a tax exemption for hurricane sup-
plies is a new idea and is designed
to get Floridians to prepare early.
Last year, some areas of the state
were left without power for weeks
by the.hurricanes.
The tax.exemption is expected to
cost about $7.6 million in revenues
and local governments amount $1.7
million this year. The amount saved
will vary per county. The state-im-
posed sales tax is 6 cents per $1 pur-
chased, with exemptions for items'
such as food and medicine. Coun-
ties can add the local option sales
tax, which in Gadsden is 7 cents.
However in Leon the tax is 7.5
cents.
Statistics have shown that about
one-fourth of all Floridians who live
along the coast do nothing to pre-
pare for the hurricane. The tax ex-
emption is an attempt to get those
folks moving. However inland
counties, like Gadsden, should not
be lulled:into a false sense of secu-
rity. In 1985 when Hurricane Kate's
eye came directly over the county,
some areas were without power for
a week'or more. Many people were
unprepared for the wind and rain
damage caused by Kate.
"I hope this tax benefit will en-
courage Floridians to ready them-
selves, their families, homes and
businesses for the 2005 hurricane
season," Bush said in a press re-
lease.

Unlike their cousins in the north
that use fast-falling streams to pow-
er their mills, Florida grist mills de-
pended on the weight of the water
to turn the turbines that power the
grinding stones.
To get the volume of water need-
ed to drive the stones, creeks were
dammed up and ponds were
formed. The ponds become a ready

water source for the gristmill..
Thus Shepard's Mill Pond was
formed. The pond is only a few
miles from the headwaters of the
Telogia Creek, one of the larger
water sheds in Florida, that drains
thousands of acres of land on its 45
mile trek to connect with the
Ochlockonee River.
Once the water was captured in
the pond it was then funneled
through the mill's turbine. The tur-
bine runs the grinding stones via a
large belt. The belt turns the 1.000
lb stones that grind the corn. The
stones turn at a steady 60 rpm in
order to grind up the corn in uni-
form sizes.
Once the turbine is engaged and
the stone starts turning whole corn
is
then fed through a hopper that
sends the corn into a hole in the
center of the top stone. As the corn
passes through the hole it falls to
the bottom stone where the grind-
ing begins. Dallas explained that
the space bet een the tho stones
determines what the end product
will be. The closer the rwo stones
are together the finer the grind \ ill
be. The configuration of the cutting
side of the stone causes the finished
product to \work itself to the outside
of the stones. Once there. it is ready
to be bagged. Dallas still uses the
same turbine and grinding stone
p r.sccss to make meal and grits to-
day.
incidentally the stones are mined
in Georgia now. but the earlier
stones from France "'ere
brought to this country as ballast in
French ships. One of the stones
no\\ in ser ice at the mill is from
France and ts o\er 100 'ears old.
Dallas said.
,\s an added note. Dallas said that
the grinding process created a lot of
fine dust which h is highly flamma-
ble. That. coupled w ith an occa-
sional spark bN the two stones
burnping together. is a major factor
in \ h\ there are not many mills
still left standing.
"I wasn't unusual for one or two


mills to burn down a year," Dallas
said.
Historically grist mills were a
stable business. Shepard's Mill saw
the tobacco industry in the county
rise and fall several times; the mill
faced a depression and two World
Wars and didn't falter. The mill
continued to operate until 1978
when its grinding stones finally
stopped.
Dallas said that Wayne Hanna,
who owned the mill from 1960 un-
til 1976 holds the distinction of op-
erating the states last commercially
run grist mill.
Hanna followed a family tradition
in the mill business. His family had
owned Hanna Mill three miles
north of Shepard's Mill on Telogia
Creek. Hanna had improved the
mill, with two additional grinding
mills and replaced the wooden wa-
ter box used by the turbine with a
concrete box. After Hanna sold
the mill it was.shut down in 1978,
ending a 103 year history of grind-
ing meal.
Today the Dallas's still produce
on a limited basis the meal and
grits that made the mill a county fa-
vorite. In addition they operate a
small antique store inside the mill
house. "If you want some of the
old fashion meal we still offer it in
the coarse grinds like they did years
ago," Dallas said.
For some local residents the mill
holds a special place. It still re-
minds them of a time gone by,
when life was as simple as riding a
horse to the old mill and waiting
half a day to have your corn
ground. It wasn't a wasted time; it


gave you an opportuni-
ty to find out the com-
munity news from oth--
ers waiting their turn
as well.
Occasionally you
can still see someone
who has taken a few
minutes to stop along
Highway 12 and look
at the pond and enjoy
the wildlife. Some will
take a photo of the old
mill house that sits,
precariously close to
the road. (The building
has the distinction of
being the second clos-
est building to a state
highway in Florida.)
Others may venture in-
side and look at one of
Florida's historic sites
and structures.
Those with artistic
tendencies may want
to spend some extra
time and paint or draw
the rippling waterfall
that protrudes from be-
neath the aging old
mill house. A cypress
post dating to the origi-
nal structure might be ne of the
of interest as it strug- the area du
gles, after all these ry.
years, to shore up a
sagging floor.
There might be a few who would
like to hear the sounds of the tannic
water as it careens down the creek
on its trek to the Gulf of Mexico.
Whatever your needs, the Dallas's
want you to drop by and visit. If

20 Gadsden County Times June 2, 2005


Dear Gadsden, Liberty & Calhoun
County Residents,
ITo 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!
