Cold Cases: Young believes more will be solved


- ~


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

Gadsden County Sheriff Morris Young said the one
thing he wanted to do if elected sheriff was to open
cold case murders.
From 1974 through 2004, there were 16 cases in the
cold case files. Most of the cases have been profiled in
this publication over the past two months. Several


cases were not profiled, because
the evidence did not warrant a
classification as a cold case.
When Young asked families to
meet with him and local
deputies as well as agents from
the Florida Department of Law
Enforcement, he made it clear
to the families present that he


could not promise
results. He promised that
he and the investigators
assigned to each case
would do the very best
job they could to find
those responsible for
murdering their loved
ones.

There was one glimmer of hope as the cold cases
began to emerge again publicly when the alleged mur-
derer of William Moses Wilson was arrested and
charged. Investigators said they suspected 15-year-old
Terrell Powell of shooting Wilson to death in August of
2003 all along but could not find the murder weapon.
New evidence, however, linked him to the murder, they

Quincy city commissioners find themselves
in a "Catch-22" situation: no matter what deci-
sion they make, there will be consequences.
The dilemma stems from a CDBG block
grant the city used to build the first phase of the
business park, including infrastructure, on Joe
Adam's Road. In the grant were stipulations
that businesses that located in the park must
generate local jobs.
To create jobs the City of Quincy gave Big
Bend Rebar, Inc. and All-Tech Southeast prop-
erty in the park to build manufacturing plants.
Over the past several months it became appar-
ent to commissioners that something was
wrong with the All-Tech property. Because the
company had not generated jobs for the area,

incline, the complex will be located on the six
acres next to Cleveland Street. The entrance
will also be along Cleveland Street.
According to Ben Hood, who represents
Moore/Bass, the developers of the property,
there will be no connection to the property
from Pittman Street. Originally there had
been some discussion about part of the com-
plex extending to Pittman Street.
One resident from the Pittman Street area
was concerned about the wetlands that are
located on the property. Lester Gatlin said
he remembered when Frosty Morn was
located on Cleveland and thought some of the
waste from the meat packing company's kill'"
floor had been dumped on the property.
"I have some reservations about what was
pushed down in that area," Gatlin said.

the Florida Department of Community Affairs
who issued the grant began to look to the City
of Quincy for a refund of $397,000. That
amount was the part of the grant that DCA felt
Quincy owed if All-Tech defaulted on their
agreement to hire local employees.
At last month's meeting city manager Willie
Earl Banks said that All-Tech wanted to meet
with the commissioners concerning the grant
problems.
Tuesday night Bev Kilmer, representing All-
Tech spoke to the commission. Kilmer said she
was now a part of the company, that she had
come onboard as vice president to help work
through the current set of problems the com-
pany was facing. Kilmer's husband Larry is
the president of the company.

After a nearly there6 year hiatus the 120
apartment complex on Cleveland Street is
reborn.
The complex will consist of three apartment
buildings with a club house and a swimming
pool. It will be gated, with a guard on duty
from seven in the evening until seven in the
morning.
The property will be operated by the Carlisle
Group, and part of their agreement in the 2002
proposal was that the complex manager be
certified in crime prevention.
The property is located between Golden

Gadsden County School District:
schools made a significant improve-
ment in school grades over last year.
Only one school, Stewart Street Ele-:
mentary School in Quincy was desig-;
nated with a grade of F, compared to'
five school with the F grade last year. :
Seven school advanced one letter:
grade. Crossroads Academy, a charter
school, went from F in 2004 to B this
year.
The grades schools are assigned
reflect how students fared in reading,
math, and writing on the Florida Com-
prehensive Assessment Test (FCAT).
They are also based on how much
progress students make in a year and
how many students are performing at
or above grade level.
Superintendent of Schools Reginald
James said he is "pleased with the
progress made over the past year. Cer-
tainly we are headed in the right direc-
tion."
"We are not where we will be,"
James added.
"We have not yet achieved excel-
lence, but we are showing progress.
We have shown we have the potential
to show excellence, and that's where
we want to be."
James also said he is confident the
Stewasrt Street "F" grade will be
improved upon appeal. The school
had been graded just one point short of
a passing grade. James said there were
a few points to be considered upon
appeal of the "F' grade.
Grades for each of the schools with
the 2004 grades listed in parentheses

Midway Mayor Delores Madison accepts the Northwest Florida
League of Cities Municipal Official of the Year award from Executive
Director Jeff Hendry.

Midway's mayor is

city official of year


By Byron Spires
Times Staff Writer
Midway Mayor Delores Madison
has been named the Northwest
Florida League Of Cities' "Munici-
pal Official of the Year."
"This year's recipient, I think,
epitomizes the character, persist-
eice and meaning of this award,"
Jeff Hendry, executive director of
NWFLC said about Madison at last
week's Midway City Commission
meeting.
* Hendry was on hand to present
Madison with the large trophy that
accompanies the prestigious award.
, The trophy, which list the last
eight winners of the award, will be
on display at the Midway city hall
until next year's winner is decided.
Madison also received a plaque
from Hendry as a permanent
reminder of being chosen as the
2004-2005 winner.
,'Hendry showered Madison with
accolades of her accomplishments
as a council member and mayor dur-
ing the presentation.
"Mayor Madison was chosen from


a prestigious group of people,"
Hendry said.
Hendry added that Madison had
been responsible for and provided
the leadership to rewrite, promote
and overwhelmingly pass a new city
charter.
He added that Madison had been
instrumental in obtaining nearly
$1.7 million in state and federal
funds for the City of Midway. Madi-
son, he said, had helped convince
property owners of over 3,000
vacant acres of residential and com-
mercial land to voluntarily annex
that property into the City of Mid-
way.
Continuing his accolades, Hendry
said that Madison had been at the
helm of the city when Midway was
recognized by the Governor's
Office with the 2004 Florida Rural
Community of the Year award.
Midway received the award for its
successful creation and implementa-
tion of a financial plan that brought
Midway from a state of financial
emergency designation to a city
with fund surpluses.

Septic tanks, rain water are P and Z issues

Board heard from residents about concerns of new developments in county


by BYRON SPIRES
Times Staff Writer

A dozen residents near the
proposed The Palms subdivision
in the Sawdust Community made
it clear to the Gadsden County
Planning and Zoning Board they
did not want the 21 acre, 20 lot
housing development in their
neighborhood.
The subdivision was before the
board for conceptual plat review
which is the first of three stages
required for review and approval
of the development.
"I need your help on it, folks,"
said Glenn Suber, who owns
property adjacent to the proposed
subdivision. Suber said that his
property was where most of the
water for the subdivision drained.
County growth management
director William McCord said
that the water drainage would be
no more that is currently draining
onto Suber's land.
The Gadsden County Comp
plan requires that major subdivi-
sions develop a way to deal with
drainage water, which usually
will mean a filtration type hold-
ing pond on the property.
Suber added his concern about
the use of septic tanks in the sub-
division. He said the land where
the subdivision is to be located is
low and holds water, a concern
when dealing with septic tanks.
A memo in the board's packet
from the Florida Department of
Health stated the property had
been evaluated in January, and
that "the site is suitable for an
onsite sewage treatment and dis-
posal system." It added that this
will be a subsurface system.
Suber said that he had done a
study concerning septic tanks and
found that the average family
used about 250 gallons of water a
day amounting to about 11 mil-
lion gallons a year that would
need to be processed by the sub-
di\ ision's septic utanks."ct s.
"Septic tanks do not filter
water," Suber said.
Ron Barnett, a neighbor across
Providence Road from the prop-
erty, said this was not the first
time the property has been before
the county as a subdivision.


Glenn Suber


According to Barnett about
10-12 years ago the board turned
down a proposal for a subdivi-
sion. He said that the land.held
water and one corer of the pro-
posed subdivision drained back
across the road onto his property.
Barnett said that he knows the
land has problems with septic

tank drainage. He has lived in his
present location for 18 years and
had replaced his septic tank sys-
tem three times.
In defense of the subdivision,
Latasha Murray, owner of the
subdivision, said there had been
"a lot" of soil samples done on
the property and that they had not
"run into any major puddles."
She added that drainage toward
Providence Road would be less
than is currently draining in that
direction.
When asked if she had qcon-,:.
tacted neighbors to the property,
Murray said yes.
The room erupted in a
resounding "no."
Murray said she had several
calls concerning the property.
"I do get calls here and there."

Board member Willard Rudd
suggested that Murray meet with
neighbors concerning the
drainage and septic tank issues.
Rudd made a motion to table
the conceptual plat review until
the neighbors and Murray could
meet. The motion carried.

In other business:
* The board turned down a com-
prehensive plan amendment to
change 9.95 acres from Agricul-
ture Two to Urban Service Aiea.
The USA change is for property
owned by Friendship Baptist
Church on Bostick Road just
south of Harbin Road. The plan
change was to allow a 27 lot sub-
division to be built on the prop-
erty. The USA land use would
allow that number of houses to
built on the property, and also
opens the property up for both
commercial and industrial uses.
The same piece of property
was also before the board for
approval of a conceptual subdivi-
sion plan for Friends Village. The
subdivision, according to.church
representative Rev. Cedric
Spradley, said the houses would
be 1600 square feet with a two
car garage. The housing develop-
ment would have underground
utilities.
Both measures drew responses
from neighbors.
One neighbor, Odis Carter, who
lives across Bostick Road from
the development said the lots
were too small.
"To me that is mighty small
lots, that's house to house,"
Carter said.
According to Bud Clark, who
was introduced as a partner in the
venture, the lots would be about
two-tenths of an acre.
Both Clark and Spradlin said the
church did not plan to use the
property for business or indus-
trial uses.
Carter said he did not have a
* iproblei-ithttger: lots,: but one
of the reasons he had moved to
the area just outside of the City
Of Quincy.
David Smith, another neigh-
bor, said he was not against
progress, but agreed with Carter
about the small lots.

Summer program offered


"I would like to see it more
uniform to the area," Smith said.
Smith added that he had concerns
about the rain run-off from the
property as well.
Marion Lasley reminded the
board that the minor amendment
covered up to 10 acres and that
the property owner could come
before the board for another land
change with other property that
they own.
By falling below the 10 acre
bar it becomes a minor amend-
ment, a major amendment
requires a different and longer
process.
Both measures failed.
* The board approved the pre-
liminary plat for San Bonita
Farms subdivision. The subdivi-
sion has been before the board on
several occasion and was asked
to change some of its platting. F
and F Gadsden Properties, the
owners of the 407.26 acre subdi-
vision on Shady Rest. Road east
of Scotland Road, plan to
develop 35 single family lots on
the property.
* McCord provided a list of
upcoming submissions that will
be before the board in the future.
Those include: Comp Plan
amendment for Dodger Park;
Comp plan amendment for a
101.16 acres from Ag 2 to Rural
Residential (RR) on SR 267;
Comp plan amendment on
417.51 acres from Ag 3 to RR on
the south side of McCall Bridge
road and east of Lake-view Point

sion plan on the same property;

plat review for Philippians Pines
subdivision; Conceptual/prelimi-
nary site plan Border Line

only. All final decisions are made

: Everybody thinks their father
is the best. I'm no exception.
: My daddy was a great dad. I
lbved to spend time with him. I
lbved the smell of his cigar. I
loved the way he used to hug
me never too tight ending
always with a little squeeze. I
tried never to disappoint my
father. For some reason, it was
more important to me to keep
him happy than my mother. I
guess I thought my mother
expected me to mess up from
time to time.
My father only spanked me
once. It was more like a swat
than a spank, but it hurt me to
the core and I still think about
it. What hurt more than any-
thing was the fact that he would
touch me in anger.
I remember it like it was
yesterday. I must have been
about three or four years old. It
was hot and he set one of those
table top fans on a stool to keep
ds both a little cooler. He had

from electrocuting myself. I'm
sure when he came in and saw
my little hand reaching for the
fan, it scared the living day-

He hugged me and rocked
me until I stopped crying that
night and kept telling that he'd
done it because he loved me.

When you start mixing 90
degree weather and thunder-
storms together you get a hot,
sultry day and if you haven't
notice we have been having a
lot of those lately.
I heard someone say that it
sure seemed hotter now than it
was 30 or 40 years ago.
They mentioned the green-
house effect and global warm-
ing as the reason for all of the
heat.
I'm not saying that they are
wrong, but I think air condi-
tioning is the culprit.
Why air conditioning?
I think we have become soft
and expect to live in a con-
trolled atmosphere.
We want our world to be
somewhere between 70 and 74
degrees .year-round.
Just think about it. Our cars,
homes, offices, and stores are
all air conditioned. We spend
as little time away from our
air conditioning as possible.
It hasn't always been that
way.
I grew up in a home without
air conditioning and I can7ndot
remember being all that
uncomfortable. We did have
heat for the winter, but in the
summer it was open windows
and a fan.
As a matter of fact I can
remember walking along Mal-
colm Street where I grew up
on summer evenings and hear-
ing televisions and radios
playing in neighbors homes


through their open windows.

were air conditioned. But,
most of the smaller stores like
Hanna Brother's Grocery that
my Uncle Marcus and his
brother Delmas owned
depended on a breeze to keep
the store cool.
You had to order cars spe-
cial with air conditioning. One
of my cousins who lived in
New York State always com-
mented that he did not see air
conditioning in automobiles
until he would come south on
\ action. He did not buy a car
with air conditioning until
sometime in the early 1970s
when it became standard fare
for most full size cars.
But, now that I think about
it, he did always complain
about the heat when he was
down this way. I guess I was
too busy working or playing
back then to pay much atten-
tion to the heat. Plus I did not

to the editor


Thank you officer

Dear Editor,

This letter is in regard to Officer
Kenneth Lewis. Officer Lewis
responded to a break-in at my
brother's house. He took the time to
come out and investigate the break-
in and followed up with great
lengths and concern. He showed
loyalty to this investigation and
refused to stop until justice would
be served.
Hats go off to Officer Kenneth
Lewis of the Gadsden County Sher-
iff's Office for your support and
your faithfulness to the community
and concerned citizens that do


depend on others that need help.
Thank you so very much and
may God bless you always.

have much contact with air
conditioning at the time and
therefore it wasn't a factor. I
guess I thought it was alright
to be hot.
But, then that would change
when I reached the eleventh
grade. We got a window unit
air conditioner put in our
house.
When it came to heat and
summer temperatures, my life
made a drastic change. I was
working for Jim Ed Gilbert at
the Post Plant and I can not
think of but one place hotter
on a mid-summer day than
standing in front of the steam
boiler shoveling wood chips
into a blazing fire.
Even the shade in that place
was unbearably hot.
I developed a routine that
summer.
Each day I would come
home, get a shower and then
sit in front of that window unit
and cool off.
I did not want anybody to
mess with me, I just wanted
the cool breeze from those
louvers to blow across my hot
face.
Before I realized it I was
hooked on air conditioning.
I'm still hooked on it.
But, I'm not alone: most of
us could not live without our
air conditioning. Let the elec-
tricity go off for a few hours
and people become very upset
and a few even get angry. Not
because they can't cook or
watch TV, oh no, it's much
deeper than;that; I can't,; : :.:,

air conditioning.
Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.......
I'm sorry I lost my train of
thought for a few minutes, the
air conditioning in my office
quit blowing.
Don't worry, it started back
and everything is going to be
all right. At least that is what I
keep telling myself.

Tony Harris: This father doesn't go anywhere without his kids


by BYRON SPIRES
Times Staff Writer

What is a father?
That answer depends a lot on who
you ask.
To some'he is that old grey haired
man who sits in his chair on the
front porch and tells youth stories of
his childhood. To others he is a
young man with youth in his eyes
and love in his heart for his children.
For some he is that middle aged fel-
low that takes his kids to the local
park and watches them play.
What does he look like?
He is tall and lanky or he might be
short and stocky. He could have
plenty of hair or he could have none
at all. He could wear a uniform or he
could wear a suit.
Fathers come in all shapes, sizes,
races, creeds and nationalities.
Fathers are universal, they are
everywhere.
They are all special and a special
day has been set aside to honor
fathers. This Sunday, June 19 is
that day, a day to say thank you for
all you do and all you have done.
One of those special fathers is
Tony Harris. Harris has a unique
way of celebrating Father's Day
with his two children, Tatiana age
six and Tony Jr. age two. He will be
at this Sunday afternoon's Dodgers
game. He'll be there with his two
kids, because that is where the three
of them and his wife Tammy are
every Sunday afternoon during the
Dodgers home games.
Harris is a long time Dodgers fan
and does not miss many games and
his kids seem to enjoy the Sunday
afternoons at Dodger Park.
When asked if he wants his son to
grow up and be a Dodger ball player
Harris nodded yes. He then said that
Tony Jr. was already hitting balls in
the house, which did not seem to
please his wife as she sat and lis-
tened to Harris talk about his two
kids. The couple has been married
for nine years.
For Harris, bringing his family to
a baseball game is a family tradition.
Harris said his father carried him to
ball games when he was a child-. ::;


"My dad played ball when I was
young and carried us to the games. I
grew up watching baseball," Harris
said. His father, Johnny Harris, was
a great influence on him and he
learned from him to spend as much
time with your children as you can.
That type of upbringing, Harris
said, is what he wants to give his
children as well. "I don't go any-
where without them."
Harris isn't just a Sunday after-
noon dad. He helps his daughter
during school with her homework.
He said they had a ritual: The first
thing is a hug and then a snack and
it's to the books to do the home-
work. "Every day it is me and her
doing homework. It is very impor-

tant to be 100 percent behind what
your children decide to do," Harris
said about helping his daughter with
her homework.
His wife Tammy praised Harris for
his involvement with their children.
"He takes care of the kids and they
enjoy being with him," his wife
said.
Tatiana was asked what grade she
would be in next year. She climbed
up in her dad's lap and held up one
finger. When questioned about not
speaking she whispered that she
would be in the first grade again
holding up one finger. "I know
I'm spoiling my kids," Harris said as
Tony Jr. climbed up on his other
knee.

When asked about advice for new
dads Harris had some profound
advice. "Dads be a man for your
kids take care of them," he said.
Harris warned that life was too short
to waste and said that it was up to
dads to do right by their children.
He considers himself to be a strict
father and expects his children to
obey, and when he spoke to them
they listened to him. "I think
it is important that children obey
adults and show adults respect.
When I set my rules I want the kids
to go by them," Harris said.
Harris said he believed children
should be brought up in the church.
"Teach them the right way," Harris
said about being a father.

It's Time for a Change
Its time to stop, pull over in life, and check pur road map which is the
word of God. See how far we have come with God's help and
guidance and protection. Not our faith, but God's mercy and grace.
We are traveling whether or not we realize it. Somewhere it seems
like it takes or will take a more serious thought of our joumey and
destination. Pull over spiritually, refresh our spiritual eyes, check the map the Bible,
see how and where we just took it for granted. We know the route well, but if we study
God's word and apply it to our daily lives, we will find we have fallen short somewhere.
God's word never will change. Let us stretch our spiritual limbs so we can walk
together. Lock arms with each other and open our spiritual eyes to the condition our
nations are in today. We as Christians are the instruments, the vehicles down here for
God to use to reach the lost. Thank God for all of our officials, they are doing a
tremendous job, but their lives are at risk, also. Pray for them and their protection.
Question ourselves, see if we really know the only real lasting crime stopper, his name
is Jesus. If he lives in the heart, then he will control the whole body. Violence and crime
will cease if we keep checking our obedience and faith. According to 2nd Chronicle
7:14 if my people, which are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray,
and tum from their wicked ways, then will I hear from Heaven and heal the land. We
are living in a sin sick world. It's time for a change. St. Matthew 7:7'reads, If ye abide
in me let my word abide in you, you can ask what ye will, it will be done. It's time for
a change.
Humbly submitted, Florence Mims Bradwell

Madison


Continued from Page 2

Concerning Midway and its
remarkable recovery from near
financial disaster, Hendry said,
"The leadership of the whole coun-
cil has been nothing short of
remarkable."
Hendry praised Madison for her
lobbying work over the past several
Florida Legislative sessions. He
said she had "jumped in waist
deep," and has been very effective
at lobbying for the City of Midway
and the region.
"You have great leadership,"
Hendry said about the Midway
council. About Madison, Hendry
said she would, "stack up against
any mayor in the state."
According to Hendry, Madison is
the first female to win the award in
its eight year history.
In addition to winning the award
Madison was elected as second vice
president of the NWFLC, setting
the stage for Madison to be presi-
dent of the organization in two
years.
One more accolade Hendry
announced concerning Madison
was of her winning the NWFLC's
Associate Member Recruitment
Award for her work in bringing in
new members to the League.
Madison said that the support of
the city council and the city's staff
was what made the award possible.
"I was just the forerunner," Madi-
son said.
Madison said that she just wanted
to make sure that no one forgot
about the small city of Midway.

In response city growth director
Arleen Houston said the land that
would be built on was high enough
for construction and that DEP had
looked at the property. S h e
added that a ravine and woodlands
would buffer the property from the
SPittman Street side as well.
Commissioner Cook asked that the
developer add a sidewalk along
Cleveland Street for pedestrians that
would be using the street as access
to the shopping center. Hood agreed
to add the sidewalk.
The measure passed with commis-
sioners Keith Dowdell and Andy
Gay voting against the complex.
The board approved the'building
of a 8800 square foot five bay
hangar at the Quincy/Gadsden Air-
port. Local resident Mike Tharpe
spoke concerning the new building.
Tharpe said he was concerned about
the noise level and the flight pat-
terns of the planes that came over
his house. In addition, Tharpe said
he had problems with water erosion
from the past expansions at the air-
port.
A deep trench had been cut across
part of his land and he felt the air-
port should be responsible for cor-
recting the problem. Commissioners
asked that a representative of the
airport authority be at the next meet-
ing to discuss Tharpe's problem.
The board passed that measure
with Elias and Dowdell voting
against the new building.
The commissioners unanimously
approved the major development

obligations," Kilmer said. S h e
noted that a series of unfortunate
events had set the company back
and that they were again trying to
make the operation work.
Kilmer said that the bank the com-
pany was using to finance the'
expansion into the larger building at
the Quincy Park from its location in
Leon County had folded. According
to Kilmer the federal government
froze all of the bank's assets and for
six months had stopped her-com-
pany from drawing on funds for
their move to Quincy.
Other problems, she said,
stemmed from the bank as well.
Kilmer said the bank had paid con-
tractors for work that was not done
without checking with the company
first. That problem caused All-Tech
to pay twice for work to be done.
And the contractor they had used to
build the building went bankrupt.
Subcontractors were not paid and
Kilmer said rhi,.: looked to All-Tech
for their money.
She said that the lack of promised
infrastructure had delayed a part of
the facility from becoming opera-
tional. The powder coating facility
was delayed for a year and the com-
pany lost several contracts because
of the delay.
"I don't know how much that
delay cost us," Kilmer said.
The company had obtained a
$500,000 loan to move to the
Quincy business park and has been
making the payments.
She asked the commissioners for a
six-month extension on the required
number of local workers the com-
pany would need to hire. K ilmer
said that she had been told by DCA
that any extension request would
have to come from the City of
Quincy.
City attorney Jack McLean agreed
with Kilmer and said the request
would need to come from the city.
One consequence McLean
explained it is that the city could be


store and gas station will be used
for the proposed Walgreens Drug
Store.
Because of concerns over the
city's audit, Banks said he planned
to bring a financial consultant on
board to help work through some of
the city audit problems. That com-
ment did not go unnoticed.
Elias wanted to know what pur-
pose a consultant would serve in the
audit process. He then answered his
own question by asking would hir-
ing a consultant speed up the
process. Banks answered that it
would.
"How did we get in this situation,"
Taylor asked Banks. Banks said that
the city's books had not been bal-
anced monthly. He said that the new
computer system the city was using
was not user friendly and had also
been a problem.
Dowdell said that a letter he had
from the city's auditors said Watson
and Rice had not received some
needed information. Banks said to
his knowledge Watson and Rice had
received all of the information they
had requested.
Elias said he wanted to talk to the
auditors and did not understand
what the problem had been. This is
getting ridiculous," Elias said.
Banks told the commissioners that
the audit should be completed by the
September deadline, but that was
not enough, and the commissioners
decided that they needed, to meet
with Watson and Rice. A workshop
is set for next Tuesday starting a 4
p.m. at city hall which will include
Watson and Rice.
Cook requested including in the
workshop a way to determine if, by
the charter, the commission could
create a position like as.isiant city
manllader.i to be a liaison between the
commission and the staff. He felt


penalized in future grants for not
completing this grant in a timely
manner. This grant is due to be com-
pleted by August.
Other probleris surfaced as well:
Commissioner Cook wanted some
kind of guarantee that DCA would
be amenable to the extension and
that All-Tech would be able to fulfill
its end of the bargain as well.
Both commissioner Derrick Elias
and Mayor Sherrie Taylor wanted
something in writing from Kilmer
concerning All-Tech's part of the
agreement and exactly how it
intended to fulfill its obligations.
Kilmer was asked by Elias what
the problem had been with finding
local employees. Kilmer said that
the company had processed a lot of
applications, but once the applicants
were processed and required to take
a drug test, they failed.
It was decided by the commission
to have Kilmer provide a plan that
they could approach DCA with by
the next meeting on June 28. Kilmer
agreed to have the plan at that time.
According to McLean the plan
must be to DCA by the middle of
July in order to be approved before
the August deadline.

McSwain said the robber never dis-
played a weapon of any kind. The
teller did as instructed and the robber
left the bank.
Although police arrived within min-
utes of the robbery and surrounded the
bank, the suspect had already left the
area.
According to McSwain, the suspect
called Gadsden County Sheriff Morris
Young to turn himself in.
McSwain and Young, with the assis-
tance of Tallhassee police officers,
arrested Robinson.
Robinson is being held without bond
in the Gadsden County Jail on robbery
and grand theft charges.


something should be done to work
on the city's financial problems.
Also included in the workshop will
be Banks' plan to solve the city's
financial dilemma.
Taylor asked about the status of
funding for the Stewart Street bridge
project. She was told by Banks that
he has been in contact with FEMA
and feels there would be some fund-
ing available. The state's Soil Con-
servation department he said could
also be a source of funds.
The problem is that the funding is
up to 60 days away. Banks said that
the city is going forward with pre-
liminary work on the bridge.
Taylor, who represents the district
where the bridge is located, was not
satisfied with Banks' answer. She
said that Banks knew about the
bridge problem and the city's finan-
cial problems two months ago and
should have been pursuing these
funding avenues at that time.
"You dropped the ball," Taylor said.

Charter school on the horizon for Midway


)y BYRON SPIRES
fimes Staff Writer

If Mayor Delores Madison has
per way the city of Midway will
lave a Charter School within the
'ext few years.
According to Madison Midway's
school site selection committee has
,een meeting regularly to determine
-he feasibility of opening a charter
school in the city. She said that the
phenomenal growth of Midway
over the past two years warranted a
serious look at the need for a
school. In addition she mentioned
that there are a number of new sub-
divisions that will be starting up
over the next two years which will
help drive the demand for a new
school in Midway.
In order to accomplish the goal
of opening a charter school Madi-
son suggested the council approve
Ithe hiring of Haskell Company, a
professional consulting firm that
specializes in establishing charter
schools. The cost to hire the com-
pany would be $20,000. Madison
said that donations would be able to
cover $15,000 with the city being'
asked to pay only $5,000 of the to-
tal cost.
Haskell would do the foot work
in developing the new school and
most importantly do a survey with
both new and older Midway citi-
zens to determine the exact needs of


the community concerning a poten-
tial charter school.
The city has been given 100
acres by Lex Thompson near the
Hill Top Subdivision as a site for
the new school.
Funding for the school would be
provided by the state should Mid-
way be approved for a charter
school.
According to Madison her com-
mittee has done a preliminary sur-
vey which shows that many Mid-
way residents would be interested
in bringing a charter school to the
city.
Council member Ella Barber wants
the survey to be done in-house and
feels the city does not need to spend
the money for a professional com-
pany.
City manager Paul Piller spoke
to the issue of needing a profession-
al company to do the early stages of
a charter school assessment. "This
school is a very serious decision for
the city," Piller said. He added that
the process of building a charter
school was very complicated and
required a lot of preliminary work
to create a feasible school for Mid-
way. Piller reiterated Madison's ear-
lier statement that Midway would
begin to see a new student popula-
tion as the city continued to grow.
The school according to Piller
and Madison would be limited to
Midway residents.


Council approved the $5,000 re-
quest.
In other business:
SCity finance director Angela
Poole told commissioners that the
city was $90,000 under budget on
spending. One factor in the positive
money flow Poole said was nearly
$120,000 this year in building per-
mits. City growth director Rosevelt
Morris added that he currently has
about $20,000 in permits still need-
ing to be processed.
The council heard on first read-
ing rezoning of four, ten acre lots
along US 90 from County Residen-
tial to Interchange Commercial. The
property is part of 80 acres annexed
into the city last year. Ten acres of
each lot already has the IC zoning,
this measure brings the entire 80
acres into the IC designation.
In an ongoing program of eco-
nomic growth for the city, consult-
ant Andy Eastman presented the
council with a draft of economic de-
velopment strategy. The draft out-
lined what the city could do to pro-
mote jobs and education for the cit-
izens of Midway with the limited
amount of resources available. The
strategy, Eastman said, would help
'the city develop ways of gaining
grants for needed services. Eastman
added that Midway was currently
working on a growth strategy with
its recent annexation and by looking
at a charter school for the city.

by BYRON SPIRES
Times Staff Writer

Gretna city commissioners' held a
workshop Monday evening to dis-
cuss ways the city could create a
more positive image and develop
ways to draw businesses to the city.
Executive director David Gardner
presented the. commissioners with
several idea to improve the percep-
tion of Gretna. "I really see Gretna
on the cusp of some good things,"
Gardner said.
He talked about ways to make the
city presentable to outsiders.
"Economic development is not just
about industrial growth." Gardner


said that developing affordable hous-
ing and creating a positive look for
the city are important issues the com-
mission-should be looking at. He
suggested cleaning up some of the
abandoned, property along US. 90
through Gretna as a good place to
start.
Mayor Helen Franks has been lob-
bying for the city to'develop a code
enforcement bauI d. Fr.a n k s
agreed with Gardner and said that is
one of the reasons she wants code en-
forcement.
The commission agreed to contact
several of the property owners about
cleaning up Gretna's main thorough-
fare.


5Gardner also talked about the
city's industrial park. He said the
park was an important link in helping
to revitalize Gretna's economic base.'
"Gretna has 30.6 percent of its popu-
lation below the poverty level,"
Gardner said.
"We need jobs." Gardner pledged
to work with the city in bringing.in
new industry to the park, but warned
them that there were many entities
looking to snag The commission-
ers agreed with Merrell and will
bring his proposal up at the next
commission meeting; in a workshop
the commissioners cannot approve a
measure only discuss the issues and
finalize it in a regular meeting.

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.

for the day.
Such it was Tuesday and the
news was anything but good.
FSU quarterback Wyatt Sex-

Sexton who started several
games for the Seminoles last
year is in a three way battle to
get the signal-calling nod this
season. He is the only experi-

there is no Sexton, the starting
call will go to either Drew
Weatherford or Xavier Lee who
are both redshirt freshman.


addition to the bad news is the
fact that one of those two would
be starting against Miami, the
Noles opening opponent on
Labor Day night.
I think Lee has the inside nod
right now as Weatherford has

to create memories that will last
a lifetime for these young
men," Schaum said.

3 conferences make up 7/8ths of
the field.
Two each are from the SEC
and PAC-10 and three are from
the Big-12. Tulane of Confer-
ence USA rounds out the field.
First round match-ups are


interesting as SEC rivals Ten-
nessee and Florida square off.
Big -12 Conference and state
mates Texas and Baylor are also
first round foes.
Nebraska \Xill be the crowd
favorite, and word from Omaha
is there's no tickets available,
due mainly to the Huskers
involvement.
Nebraska will be hard to han-
die but Florida, Tennessee, and
Arizona State have played tough
schedules all year and are plenty
capable of cormng out of that
bracket.
In fact I don't think that
bracket is as tough as the other
one which features Tulane. Ore-
gon State, Baylor, and the Long-
horns.
Like any tournament the key
is pitching and staying our of the
loser's bracket. Good pitching
keep's most teams from that
bracket.
By the way there are no Cali-
fornia teams at Omaha this yeaL
That in itself is a rarity.
SWAT coach Brent Shelton
\ill be there as he flies out
Thursday morning.

It wasn't the War Between the States, but it was the North versus the South Sunday in the Florida-Georgia-
Alabama League's annual All-Star game. In action here a North pitcher Stanley Bell sends his best pitch.


South rises again in All-Star game


By BYRON SPIRES
Times Staff Writer

Rain couldn't stop this past Sunday's Florida-Georgia-
Alabama League's annual All-Star game. It was the
North Division against the South Division as
thunderstorms rolled overhead and high winds whipped
across the red clay infield at Dodger Park.
: It was standing room only for the fans, some of which
had traveled from the far reaches of the league's
boundaries. They were from Thomasville, Georgia,
Eufaula, Alabama and a dozen places between. The
fans were there to see their favorite player and they got
their money's worth.
: One fan yelled across the field that he was there to see
his team, the South, beat the North's team. He mumbled
that the North had won too many games and it was time
for a change. By the end of the day he got his
request. The South racked up eleven runs as they rolled
over the North which garnered only five runs.
This year's Most Valuable Player was hands down the
South's Tyrone Mingle from the Dry Springs' Marlins
(Bainbridge, GA). Mingle had an impressive
day at the bat knocking down one double and three
singles to go four for five. Mingle also pitched. two
innings striking out three.

Devils, flamed seven in five innings giving up only two
hits. Brandon Marcus from the Ichuaway Red Soxs
(Newton, GA) helped the South out going three for five
at the plate. Bert Bertoldi tapped a double and matched
Marcus at the plate going three for five.
The South put eight runs on the board in the bottom of
the fifth inning after a thirty minute rain delay.
The North's team was never able to put together a
hitting strike and struggled all day at the bat.
Billy Hurst and Bobby Case both from the Thomasville
Sluggers went one for one with Case turning his one
shot at the bat into a double.
The Dodgers will be back in Dodger park for the next
five Sundays.

Bainbridge College to partner with

UGA on science minority initiative


With a $4.9 million grant from
the Louis Stokes Alliances for Mi-
nority Participation (LSAMP), a
program of the National Science
Foundation (NSF), the University
of Georgia will lead an alliance in-
cluding five other state colleges
and universities that aims to boost
the number of underrepresented
minorities who receive bachelor's
degrees in science, technology,
engineering and math (STEM)
disciplines.
The purpose of the five-year ini-
tiative in collaboration with


Bainbridge College, and four oth-
er Georgia colleges is to double,
during the agreement period, the
number of underrepresented mi-
nority students in Georgia who
complete undergraduate degrees
in STEM.
"Improving educational partici-
pation of minorities is a major
state issue, and even more so in
the fields of science, technology
and mathematics," said UGA Pres-
ident Michael F. Adams. "This
grant allows the University of
Georgia, working with five of its


sister institutions, an opportunity
to greatly enhance minority partic-
ipation in these fields that are so
important to the state's success in
the 21st century. I am pleased that
we are collaborating with our col-
leagues toward this important
goal."
Beginning this fall, UGA and its
partners will collaborate on proj-
ects to prepare African Americans,
Hispanic Americans and other un-
derrepresented minorities for ca-
reers in STEM fields. The goal of
the collaborative effort is to in-
crease minority enrollment and re-
tention in STEM fields at the par-
ticipating institutions from 560 to
1,120 students during a five-year


period.
During the five-year period, the
PSLSAMP partner institutions
will select eligible students and
pair them with faculty mentors
who will assist them in research
efforts. Each campus will hold
conferences and symposia for fac-
ulty mentors, host research fairs
for participating students and de-
sign activities for precollegiate
students. A statewide research fair
will be held in conjunction with
Clark Atlanta University, which
also has a grant from NSF's
LSAMP.

bridge.edu.

TMH to open

wound center

Everyone has heard that time heals
all wounds, but the truth is that with-
out advanced therapies, some
wounds can take years and even
decades to heal while others that do
not respond to treatment may lead to


amputation in extreme cases.
In August, Tallahassee Memorial
HealthCare will open the Tallahas-
see Memorial Wound Healing Cen-
ter. To establish the center, Tallahas-
see Memorial is partnering with the
Boca Raton-based National Healing
Corporation, which manages wound
healing centers nationwide with an
.I', CU.'L healing rate of 80 percent
attained in 12 to 16 weeks of thera-
py. Alihtouli the center treats pa-


tients with chronic and advanced
conditions that have not responded
to previous therapies, the rate of am-
putation for non-responsive wounds
is less than four percent.
Likely candidates for treatment are
those suffering from diabetic ulcers,
pressure ulcers, infections, compro-
mised skin grafts and flaps, and
wounds that haven't healed within
30 days. Patients covered by
Medicare, Medicaid and some insur-


ance plans may self-refer to the Tal-
lahassee Memorial Wound Healing
Center.
However, one of the Center's mis-
sions is to build relationships with
patients primary care physicians.
"We become a partner in the pa-
tient's wound care," said Thomas
Lawhorn, M.D. a peripheral vascu-
lar surgeon who will serve as the
new center's Medical Director.
The Center will house three hy-


perbaric oxygen chambers for hy-
perbaric oxygen therapy, which
works by surrounding the patient
with 100 percent oxygen at higher
than normal atmospheric pressure.
This increases the amount of oxygen
in the patient's blood, and in the
case of wounds, allows red blood
cells to pass more easily through the
plasma into the wound to heal from
the inside out. Diabetic foot wounds
are an excellent example of wounds


that may benefit from this type of
treatment.
In addition to tissue oxygenation,
the Tallahassee Memorial Wound
Center will employ the use of vascu-
lar studies, tissue culturing and
pathology, revascularization, skin
grafting, and clinical or surgical de-
bridement. For more information
about the Wound Center, call 850-
431-HEAL (4325).

"A


Day in the Life of


Gadsden


County"


A photo essay about what goes on in Gads-
den County on a random summer day. We
need 20 volunteers to take a camera with
them during a random day this summer to
chronicle their family's life. I
We want to capture every- 4
thing from getting the kids
up to putting them to bed.
From early risers who head
off to deliver mail to those that
work the swing shift at the hospital. From
enjoying coffee with friends to feeding a
hundred at a carry-in dinner. From intimate


moments to activities drawing crowds of
hundreds. From city to country. From cele-
