Brother


held after


stabbing
by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
Paul Green, a 40-year-old men-
tally ill man, apparently stabbed and
killed his brother Charles Green, 46,
following an argument with his eld-
erly mother on the Fourth of July,
according to the Gadsden County
Sheriff's Office.
Green was arrested following the
incident on unrelated warrants for
failure to appear. He has not been
charged with the stabbing.
He was taken into custody about
two hours after he ran from his
home on Aspalaga Road in the
.,Sycamore Community near Greens-
boro.
The younger Green was released
from a Tallahassee (mental) institu-
tion Friday and was taken to the
family property in Liberty County.
"Monday morning he got up and
was upset. He was showing signs of
mental problems and wanted to go
to his mother's house," said Investi-
gator Matt Rowan of the Gadsden
County Sheriff's Office.
It is still not clear how Green got
from Liberty County to his mother's
house about 15 miles away. In any
case, he arrived at his mother's
house aboutl0:30 a.m.
The men's 81-year-old mother
told authorities that the two began
to argue and she came between
them. Neighbors said that Charles
Green came out of the house shout-
ing that he had been stabbed. He
died later at a Marianna Hospital.
After the incident Paul Green ran
from the house and was tracked
down later by Gadsden Count!
Sheriff's Office K-9 officer Max.'
The younger Green could face an
open count of murder if he is found
mentally competent. That determi-
nation has not yet been made.
According to Rowan, Paul has a
history of threatening family mem-
bers with violence and has been
institutionalized more than once for
mental evaluations.
Rowan said Paul had words with
his mother and Charles tried to
intervene. "He (Paul) had a knife in
his hand and stabbed him (Charles)
in the chest," Rowan said. Charles
then ran down the road and col-
lasped in the front yard of his sis-
ter's home. She called authorities.
Green's death marks the fourth
murder in the county this year.

Denis: A practice run

b3 ALICE DU POINT
Times Editor

Dennis was no Ivan.
And for that, a lot of people in Gadsden
County and throughout the Big Bend and Pan-
handle are thankful.
But the storm that came,ashore about 100I(
miles west of the county as a category 3 causing
downed trees and the inconvenience of the
interruption of electricity and cable television.
and dropped about six inches of rain, became a
practice run.
"This was a long weekend. I.feel good about Photo by Alice DuPont

Like a soap opera with a continu-
ing story line the City of Quincy and
All-Tech Southeast must wait
another day to see what direction the
two will follow. The ongoing saga
of what to do about an extension of
a Florida Department of Commu-
nity Affairs grant that tied the City
of Quincy and All-Tech together
was before the commission again
Tuesday night.
This time the commissioners drew
a line in the sand and said it is time
to put up, or in the case of All-Tech,
to move on.
All-Tech is required as part of the
agreement between them, DCA and
the City of Quincy to employee 12
local residents. The time for that
requirement to be completed is
August 29. To add insult to injury, if
the 12 jobs are not filled by the cut-
off time the city could be responsi-
ble for paying $397,922 of grant
money back to DCA.
Bev Kilmer, a vice president of
the company, came before the com-
mission last month and asked that
the city request an extension of six
months on the 12 job requirement
Kilmcr said that All-Tech had,
fallen on hard times and needed the
extension in order to fulfill the jobs
requirement. She told the commis-
sioners that the company was doing
well now and had filled several
positions of the 12 needed.
A special meeting was held last
week and commissioners told city
attorney Jack McLean to draw up an
agreement between All-Tech and the
city and bring it before the commis-
sioners for their approval at this
week's meeting. McLean pre-
sented the memorandum of agree-
ment to the commissioners Tuesday
night.
He said that there had been ongo-
ing discussion between him and All-
Tech's lawyer until 4:30 Tuesday


All-Tech's Bev Kilmer


afternoon about the wording of the
agreement.
All-Tech's lawyer wanted to
change some of the wording in the
agreement in favor of All-Tech's
position.
McLean said he had been in con-
tact with DCA and they were favor-
able to the the agreement. He added
they liked that the city had been
responsible in their actions because
the agreement included penalties if
All-Tech does not comply with the
requirements set forth in the grant
and extension.
When asked if he could guarantee
ihat DCA would approve the exten-
sion McLean said he could not guar-
antee it, only that they were favor-
able to the agreement.
Several commissioners had prob-
lems with changing the agreement.
"I thought the city was beyond
negotiations," commissioner Andy
Gay said.
Commissioner Derrick Elias.had
problems with negotiating the
agreement, saying that the city had
already gone above and beyond
what was necessary and had already
requested a year's extension.
Commissioner Keith Dowdell
wanted the contract to make the city
not obligated to pay any of the
money back.

Water problem has Gretna


residents boiling...water, that is


Dennis contributed to

existing problem, city

officials say
by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

Hurricane Dennis coupled with already existing water
problems have caused residents in parts of Gretna to
come under a boil water mandate from the county health
department.
The precautionary boil water notice went out early
Tuesday afternoon for people who live in the area
bounded by the streets of Earnest O. Barkley, Circle
Drive East and West, Beech Street, 4th, 5th, and 6th
Streets.
A water main break and a sewer line break occurred at


Earnest O. Barkley Street and there is a possibility the
water has been contaminated with sewage. "Therefore,
as a precaution, we advise that all water used for drink-
ing or cooking be boiled. A rolling boil of one minute is
sufficient. As an alternative bottled water may be used,"
said Melissa Brook of the environmental health unit of
the Gadsden County Health Department.
The precautionary boil water notice will remain in
effect until the problem has been corrected and a bacte-
riological survey shows that the water is safe to drink.
"The water dumped by Dennis Sunday contributed to
the problem. We're trying to work with Gretna to get
this thing fixed," said Shawn Wood, the county's Emer-
gency Management Director. The Gadsden County
Sheriff's Department sent bottled water to the City Hall
in Gretna by mid-afternoon Tuesday that residents on
the affected area could get free of charge.
The stench of raw sewage permeated the air near the
break and residents said the problem may have been

Midway can't say
'No' to pigs...yet


by Byron Spires
Times Staff Writer
You just can't say no, at least to
pigs.
Midway council members learned
last week that it may take some
effort and legal changes to rid the
city of a pig farm.


Council members are wrestling
with what to do about livestock
inside the city limits of Gadsden
County's fastest growing city.
Midway is starting to experience
some growing pains. The mostly
rural city has over the past 18
months annexed into it's borders

Health council meets county's needs A A


by BYRON SPIRES
Times Staff Writer

For many years organizations
have used Gadsden County's
health statistics to garner grants. In
some cases none of the grant
money was used to benefit local
citizens or, only a portion of the
money ever found its way to local
citizens.
Today if you plan to use grant
money and Gadsden County's sta-
tistics you will need the blessings
of the Gadsden County Health
Council Inc.The council was estab-
lished by the Gadsden County
Board of County Commissioners
three years ago to combat the mis-
use of Gadsden County's health
problem statistics.
GCHC is a non-for-profit organ-
ization (501(c)3) established to
facilitate development of a seam-
less community health care deliv-
ery system. The council is a con-
sortium of healthcare service
providers, the public school sys-
tem, city, county, and state govern-
ments, social providers, faith-
based organizations, businesses,
and community residents.
"Any grant pertaining to health
issues must be cleared through


GCHC," Sherry VanLandingham,
GCHC chairperson said. VanLand-
ingham said that the council's
objective is to maximize the health
care provided to local citizens and
assure that any new programs are
not duplicating services already
being provided.
According to VanLandingham
the council encourages new pro-
grams to pool their resources with
other programs to better benefit the
community when similar programs
approach the council.
The council met this past week
for its annual retreat at the Pat
Thomas Law Enforcement Acad-
emy. "We've done our homework,
now we are ready to start to work,"
VanLandingham said.
She reported that GCHC has
one program that is up and running
and doing very well. For the
month of May the Prescription
Assistance Medical Services
(PAMS) provided over $48,000 of
free prescriptions to local serv-
ices," VanLandingham said.
The PAMS program has aver-
aged between $30,000 and $48,000
a month in prescription aid to local
citizens this year, Maximo Mar-
tinez, executive director of the
GCHC said. The PAMS program
was established to help residents


who were unable to purchase their
prescriptions. Drug companies
have programs that will support
organizations like PAMS in pro-
viding prescriptions to those who
otherwise could not afford to pur-
chase those needed prescriptions.
In addition to PAMS, VanLand-
ingham said that through the
efforts of GCHC over 900 children
were provided dental services this
past school year as well.
The retreat was on the heels of a
meeting of the board and Dr. John
O. Agwunobi, Florida's Secretary
of Health. VanLandingham
said that Agwunobi pledged to help
find funding for Gadsden County.
She said that he understood, the
many health issues facing the
county. Agwunobi has been nomi-
nated by President George W. Bush
to be the assistant secretary of the
federal Department of Health and
Human Services.
Kurt Salsburg, a member of the
council, said that Agwunobi told
GCHC that no matter where he was
he would partner with Gadsden
County. Both VanLandingham and
Salsburg praised the Gadsden
County Commissioners and State
Representative Curtis Richardson
for their continued support of the
GCHC.


Midway growth concerns lawmakers


by ALICE DU PONT
STimes Editor

Paul Piller, Midway's city man-
ager, said he expects Midway to be
the largest municipality in the
county within the next ten years in
both area and population.
The speculation is based on the
number of new homes under con-


!struction now and in the future and
the voluntary annexation of land
around the city.
Growth is fine. But some elected
officials say they have grave con-
cerns about the growth and how it is
occurring. Thursday afternoon,
Piller and Midway's Mayor Delores
Madison met with Thaddeus Cohen,


director of the Florida Department
of Community Affairs, Sen. Al Law-
son (D-Tallahassee) and Rep. Curtis
Richardson (D-Quincy) as well as
County Commissioner Eugene
Lamb to talk about how the city is
going to manage the growth.
"My biggest concern is infra-
structure," Lamb said; referring to


the fact that the city has no sewer
system and all of the homes are
using septic tanks. "We don't have
roads or sewer in place. I love the
growth but I'm concerned about
where we'll ,be five years from
now," Lamb said.
Lawson expressed the same con-


cerns, citing the current growth in
Franklin County that has left some
Sof the longtime residents wondering
if they will be able to pay the taxes,
considering the upscale condomini-
ums that have now dotted the land-
scape of the once sleepy fishing,
towns on the coast.
Many of the new homes that are

under construction in Midway start
at around $150,000. Piller said the
occupants are mostly young profes-
sionals who work in and around
Leon County.
"They are your teachers, police
officers and young professionals.
These people are young, just starting

The future looks bright for the
GCHC as they look forward to a
new year."We are working on pro-
grams to help reduce some of our
startling health statistics," Van-
Landingham said.
She said that the GCHC would
continue to monitor health organi-
zations in the county to insure that
Gadsden countians can be pro-
vided adequate health care. Van-
Landingham added that the GCHC
has a database of all programs pro-

families. They. would have to pay
$250,000 for the same house in Tal-
lahassee. The commute isn't bad
either," he said. Other first time buy-
ers, Madison said, are single moth-
ers with small children.
SAs a member of the Growth
Management Committee for the
state, Lawson said he called Thurs-
day's meeting to see what can be
done to help Midway avoid the pit-
falls that come with too much
growth too soon.
"We don't want to wake up 20

continue to gather information for
that database. She said that the'
GCHC acts as a clearinghouse for
grants and grant information.
Salsburg said that one goal of
the GCHC was to make sure that
local ti-sident; received health
information about diabetes, infant
mortality and other local, health
issues that have plagued Gadsden
Coinrt\ for man3\ \ears.

PINIONS


By: Alice DuPont N | N ,-

Thanks to all for a job

well done during Dennis


Too bad that it takes a tragedy
or the threat of a disaster to force
people to work together. Hurri-
cane Dennis did just that for the
county this past weekend. Every-
body worked together to make
sure that the citizens of Gadsden
County were safe. Municipalities
worked hand in hand with county
government. If a need arose,
somebody volunteered to take


care of the problem.
The county's road crew was up
and out by 6 a.m. Sunday morn-
ing ready to saw trees that had
fallen on public roadways and
pile the debris on the side of the
road so that traffic was not
impeded. The radios and cell
phones were constantly in use
pinpointing the trouble as workers
were immediately dispatched to


Somewhere there has got

to be a plan to do it right


This past week I spent a cou-
ple of hours in Havana at the
TeligentEMS manufacturing
plant for a story. Let me say up
front that I was impressed with
the plant and especially with the
management and employees.
It \\as pleasant it enter a busi-
ness \\here there seemed.to be
such a comradeship to accom-
plish a goal.
That goal, of course being the
completion of the manufacturing
of technical equipment for a host
of different needs. As I toured
the plant I saw people on task,
working diligently at their
assigned responsibility.,
I have been in business for
myself and I understand the need
to ha\e a team at work on any
goal. It takes teamwork to'make
an operation run smoothly.
What most people do not under-


Ifetters

to the editor



Happy 100th birthday

Dear Editor.

And what a fire cracker she
is. She is one of those people
we call our other mothers. You
kno%. the ones who teach you
how to quilt. bake, iron a long
sleeve white shirt without leav-
ing cat faces.
Listening to stuff your Mamna
would tell \ou to shut up about,
and whooping you. and sending


stand about running a business is
just how important an
employee's work habits can be
to that business.
I've heard it compared to a
chain as I'm sure you have, too..
You know the phrase, "a chain is'
only as good as its weakest,,
link.", Even though'it m' \\ear
thin sometimes, there is a lot of
truth to that comment.
I watched as the employees at
TeligentEMS worked and I felt
like I saw that attitude. They
understood that it was important
that their responsibility was to
do their job correctly so that the
next person in the chain of man-
ufacturing could do their job cor-
rectly.,
In that particular business you
have to hate that type of team-
work to make it work. You can-
not afford to go back and contin-


you home to get another whoop-
ing from your Mama.
I still have not figured out,
with no telephone how the word
beat me home.
The one who makes sure you
remain close to your half sister
Essie Lee, question why you
were not in church, and always
remind you to do the right thing.
Be a good girl she would say.
I think that her son. my
friend John Lee Turner and his
family are the luckiest people in
the world to have you Ms Hat-
tie.
May your birthday party be
the biggest and the most
blessed.

clear it up.
As calls came it, they were
logged on a board and workers
were'dispatched as soon as possi-
ble. There were over 100 calls fpr
road clearing and by the end of
the day, only three were left.
I rode a couple of hours with
Road and Bridge Department
operations supervisor Curtis
Young. These guys work hard.
They may grumble, but for two
hours while they crisscrossed thle
county in.the worse weather of
the year, I never heard anyone
complain. If a call was in
Havana, they went there as soon
as they finished whatever task
they worked at. In the pouring I
rain and wind that nearly knocked
them off their feet, they cut .
branches and tree trunks.
Even when it was time for
them to go into the office area to


ually correct mistakes, especially
as sensitive as some of their
equipment must be.
That teamwork must go both-
ways, by the way. Just as an
employees. work habit deter-
mines the manufacturing out-
come, so does the way ,that
employee is treated. Today
we measure that more in bene-
fits, but there is also another fac-
tor: To get a true team effort out
of everyone, you must enjoy
what you are doing and receive a
certain amount of praise for what
you do. Sometimes you have to
meet somewhere in the middle.
I realize money is thedriving
force on both, sides of that equa-
tion. In other words, in today's,
society you must %work in order
to survive, and it's nice if that
\\oik can be someplace that is
pleasant to spend your working
day. In the
most ideal conditions it would be
great pay, plenty of benefits,
wonderful working conditions,
great bosses and four day work
weeks.
That doesn't happen too often,
but you can get pretty close
sometimes. If it Were to, happen
to you. hang on to that job by'
the way.
I've brought this up for a rea-
sor. Over the past six to eight

all emergency operations. Hurricane
Dennis was his first emergency since
taking the job six months ago.
Fnday morning, when it became
clear that Hurricane Dennis was
going to make landfall somewhere
between Panama City and Pensacola,
county officials went into emergency
mode. Wood called together repre-
sentatives from each municipality,
EMS, police departments, fire
departments, (including volunteer),
and the county's Road and Bridge
Department to an emergency meeting
at the Emergency Operations Center
(EOC) on the first floor of the Wood-
ham Justice center. By 4:30 p.m. the
Board of County Commissioners had
called a special meeting to declare
that Gadsden County was in a state of
emergency. All of the surrounding
counties had made the declaration
hours earlier.
With the weekend approaching,
Wood and others wondered how to
get the word out in areas such as
trailer parks, and pockets of substan-
dard homes where people might need
to consider using the shelter at East
Gadsden High School. The answer
was print and distribute 2000 flyers
with the pertinent information in
English and Spanish, and the local
radio station agreed to give updates
every hour and broadcast live from
the EOC. Deputies distributed the
flyers and used the public address
systems in their automobiles to get
the word out.
"If that thing wobbles to the east a
little bit, we could be in big trouble,"
Wood said late Friday, all the while
keeping a wary eye on the television
monitor. As predicted, conditions


eat lunch, a couple of men volun-
teered to check one more time the
Central Road area in Midway to
make sure it was passable. I guess
they get overtime, but believe me,
it's not enough for the work they
put in under these kinds of condi-
tions.
And they were not the only
ones putting out 110 percent
while most of the citizens sat at
home dry and somewhat comfy.
The EMS people were out all
day. It was a chore just for them
to stay dry. But they answered;
every call. "I don't know if I'll
ever be dry again," one said, as
he settled down over a bowl of
hot chili made by Tina Tolar and
Janice Tyus in between answering
telephones and running errands.
Tina spent Saturday night at
the Emergency Operations Center
located on the first floor of the


months I've seen,a rise in the
number of employment ads in
the paper. Some require a spe-!
cific background like a CDL
license or special training. Oth-
ers are looking for general
employment. We even have
an ad for the Family Dollar Dis-'
tribution Center in NMarrianna.'
I did a little looking around
and found even more jobs avail-
able. After talking to a few
employers I found out a startling
statistic. They are having a hard
time finding qualified applicants
to fill open positions. For some,
the turnover rate of employees
has become a problem statistic.
Notice I said qualified appli-
cants. And contrary to what you
iay, think.. many: of those ,: ,,..
employier-'ar' willing t ri rarid bis?
employees'. v ,
I see a big problem coming
down the track for Gadsden
County. We need to find a way to
develop those needed qualified
applicants for the industry that is
already here and those that will
be coming soon.That's right
soon.
We have already seen several
businesses open at the 10/90
Commercial Park in Midway.
Hammock Creek Industrial Park
near Midway has one business
already, with Tri-Eagle Distribu-


began to deteriorate Saturday morn-
ing when feeder bands of rain began
around noon. From then on, intermit-
tent showers, some with thunder and
lightning, peppered the county. Wood
said the county could get between 6
and 10, inches of rain. The wild card
was still how much wind damage \x as
going to be associated \\ ith the storm.
Forecasts from the Nauonal Weather
Service ranged from sustained 25 to
35 mile per winds to gusts of 50.
miles per hour.
"We're on the east side of this
storm and that's where the major
problems are going to be. As condi-
tions deterioratewe may even see
tornadoes," Wood said. While low
lying and coastal areas were under
mandatory evacuation orders, Gads-
den County's evacuation was volun-
tary. The shelter, at East Gadsden
High School, was opened at 7 a.m.
Saturday. Other shelters (of last
resort) at Chattahoochee Elementary
School and Greensboro High School
opened at noon Sunday. The school
district provided transportation to
and from the shelter for those without
transportation.
Roy Moore, store manager at
Quincy IGA, said there wasn't a run
on water, bread, and other staples.
"We were well stocked. Some people
have bought an extra: case of Water
and some canned goods, but I think
most people have been listening and
already have a lot of supplies at
home," he said.
"I'm as prepared as I can be. I
have water, batteries, flashlights, and
canned goods," said Tanya Bradwell
Friday. She was mainly concerned
about power outages and how long
they might last.
Wood said flooding could be the
biggest issue facing the county dur-
ing and after the hurricane. "We're
under what is called an extensive
moisture shield on the east side of the


Woodham Justice Center. She
slept on a twin mattress on the
floor. She didn't have to do it, but
she said with the uncertainty of
the path of Dennis she would
rather be there "just in case." A
paycheck doesn't include that
kind of dedication.
There were no territorial bat-
tles either. Quincy Police Chief
Gerald McSwain said Quincy's
officers could be stretched to
cover areas close to the city limits
that are traditionally county
patrolled. Ditto for Havana, Chat-
tahoochee, and Greensboro police
departments. Just adding a few
miles in the county to a munici-
pality's patrol area freed deputies
to cover more of the unincorpo-
rated areas.
Not only were employees pres-
ent at all of the briefings leading
up to and beyond the visit from


tion, and the potential could be
as high as 21-22 more to come.
The City of Quincy has a
potential tenant for the second
phase of their business park with
room for a dozen or so more.
Gretna after a long hiatus is
coming out of its financial prob-
lems and has a business park that
is ready for occupancy.
The bottom line here is sim-
ple. Unless the cities, school sys-
tem and county step up to the
plate,we're going tohave a big
problem.
There needs to be some con-
crete solution (not.bickering and
fighting over personal differ-
ences) set into place or Gadsden
County is going to have a much
bigger probleni,thain we hayve,,
"`nowia! Vi i sr a i{5,;I t
How'is that? you may say.
Without a qualified work force
Gadsden County will be passed
over and worse, if industry
comes here and we do not have
those employees industry so des-
perately need then the county
is in an even.worse posture. In
other. words we need people who
are willing to work, who will
work and show up for work.
Those comments come almost
directly from some of the
employers I talked to.
May's unemployment rate for


hurricane and it could cause us some
major flooding. How are we on the
rivers?" he asked Bob Gorie with the
National Weather Service. He said
the Woodruff Damn had been opened
as well as Lake Talquin.
By Friday afternoon sandbags
were ready at the county's pit on Post
Plant Road. Another 5.000 bags \ ere
filled and ready for the public at the
sheriff's office.
"Like the Governor said, we're
prepared for the worse and hoping for
the best," Wood said.
Weakened to a category 3 by the
time it made landfall at Navarre
about 2:30 Sunday afternoon, two
hours to the west of Gadsden County,
the worst the county had experienced
were road obstructions and scattered
power outages. "We had about 100
roads obstructions and all of those
were cleared except about three by
the end of the day," Wood said,
adding, "I just can't tell you how
proud I am of how everybody worked
together. One tornado was suspected
but not confirmed as about ten trees
were blown down along a railroad
track near Midway."
A power pole on High Bridge
Road snapped leaving high voltage
wires exposed for a short period.
Crews worked more than three hours
to make the repairs.
Quincy City Manager Earl Banks
said most of the power had been
restored to city customers by late
Sunday.and early Monday. "Very few
people were without power for more
than six hours," he said. Tuesday
power was still out at James A.
Shanks Middle School. "Three of the
sources that feed power to the school
went out at the same time. We should
have that power restored no later than
Thursday," Banks said.
Trees landed on several roofs
throughout the county including one
that came crashing through the roof


of a home on Laura Street. "She was'
uninjured, but you can imagine that'
she was pretty upset," Banks said.
There were also some upset peo-
ple at the shelter. A mix-up and a bro-,
ken down truck caused food not to be
delivered on time and lack of suffi-
cient staff had the already upset peo-:
pie on edge. "I'm never coming to,
the shelter again," said Vernita
Williams, who lives in a mobile,
home. Another woman said the only
food she had was a piece up pineap-,
pie upside-down cake all day.
Commission Chairman Ed Dixon
said he plans to meet with regional
Red Cross officials because he "does-
n't feel Gadsden County was a prior-'
ity for the organization during Den-
nis."
By 6 p.m. Sunday most of the
wind and rain was gone and Dennis
had barely kissed Gadsden County.
Other Floridians to the west were not
so lucky. The Escambia Sheriff's;
Office had already sent Sheriff Mor-
ris Young an e-mail asking how many:
deputies he could spare for two
weeks. "I can let them have about
five, but I'm not sure about two:
weeks. We'll do what we can to
help," he said.
'This one got everyone's attention
and now we need to build on it," said
County Manager Marlon Brown.
"You all have done a fantastic job,
given the situation. We've got to get.
better. This is a countywide situa-
tion...we all have to carry out our
responsibilities. We have to be ready
for the next one. I'm committed to us
getting better, smarter, faster," Dixon
said.
Wood called Hurricane Dennis a
trial run.
"There are a lot of things that we
can do better, but the cooperation
between all of the parties involved is
not one. I appreciate the coopera-
tion," Wood said.





Dennis, elected officials came to
hear first hand what was going
on. Some of them, like Quincy
Mayor Sherrie Taylor and Quincy
Commissioner Keith Dowdell,
volunteered to help: "I'm here to.,
do whatever I'm asked to do,"
she told Emergency Management
Director Major Shawn Wood.
Other mayors also attended every'
briefing. Gretna Mayor Helen
Franks and Greensboro Mayor
Buddy Pitts were there so that
they could be able to answer
questions from their citizens.
In all, 51 of the county's top
leaders met twice a day to make
sure the county pulled together
for the benefit of its citizens.,
It was a beautiful thing. Now,
if we could just keep up that spirit
of cooperation. One can only
hope.


Gadsden County was 4.1 percent
compared to a year ago at 4.8
percent. Gadsden County; is
ranked 18 of 67 counties -
statewide. The state's rate is 3.8
percent and the national average
is 4.8 percent according to the
Florida Agency for Worki Force
Innovation. Not too bad for a
county.
Gadsden County has one good'
chance to turn around the eco-
nomic problems facing the
county. We cannot afford to miss
this opportunity. This county
must have a viable workforce,
and without it Gadsden County
is dooming itself to stay status
quo.
There is not a simple solution
, to the problem. I wish there was.
i To solve' this alid many more
problems this county faces is
Sgoitig to take some cooperation
on a scale I have not seen hap-
pen here up to now. Maybe that
is what those in charge want to
happen, I don't know.
I .mentioned TeligentEMS ear-
lier in my column because that
particular company has made it
work because they have a plan.
Maybe someone can tell me
what the plan is for this commu-
nity. Until that happens I guess
we'll just tread some more water
and wait for a miracle.

P & Z Board axes 393 lot subdivision near Lake Talquin


by BYRON SPIRES
Times Staff Writer

In a five to four vote the Gadsden County Planning and Zoning Board
axed a land use change for 369 acres near Lake Talquin. The Highlands
at Lake Talquin crashed and burned shortly after presenting its request for
.a change of land use from Agriculture-3 (Ag-3) to Rural Residential
(RR). The property is located on the south side of McCall Bridge Road,
east of Lake View Point Road.
The proposed new subdivision would contain 393 lots on a total of 417
acres. Part of the subdivision, 47.7 acres already hold the RR designation.
If the property is granted the RR designation it moves the ratio of homes
from one to 20 acres to one to one acre. Because the county allows clus-
tering of lots to offset conservation and wetlands, lots can be as sniall as
a half-acre. The property borders a small residential area and conserva-
tion land between it and Lake Talquin.
A representative for the the owners, Larry Witt, presented the pro-
posed subdivision to the board. The owners, Witt said, intended to install
an innovative sewer system in the new subdivision, a first for the county.
Three 50,000 gallon per day systems would be placed in the subdivi-
sion. The aerobic tertiary treatment sewage system cleans water to near
drinkable purification. The systems would require only a 2.5 acre drain-
field.
The effluent, once through the system, would be piped back to the lots
to be used for watering lawns. He added that the discharge water would
be cleaner than the City of Quincy's or the City of Tallahassee's effluent.
A central sewage system has been the topic of all of the past requests
for large land use amendments. This project is the first to present a
sewage system without being requested to consider a centralized sewage
system. As an added bonus Witt said he had contacted Talquin Electric
Cooperative who had agreed to purchase the system from Highlands.H e
said TEC would buy the system and operate it once the subdivision was
sold out.
The cost per sewage unit would be about $750,000 and each can process
sewage from 150 homes.. The sewage treatment system would be
installed, Witt said, in phases as the homes are built in the subdivision.
He added that the subdivision would be supplied water and electricity
also by TEC. The site built homes would be limited to 1400 square feet.
The owners of the property intended to sell builders blocks of the prop-
erty. The purpose of selling the subdivisions in groups of lots is to keep
the cost down.
According to Witt, selling the lots in small groups would exempt the
land from the state's bureau of land sales requirements that would force
the cost, of the property up. Plans are for the smaller lots to start at
$25,000 each.
One nearby resident was not pleased about the proposed subdivision.
Richard Sprenkel, who has lived in the area for the past 20 years, said
that this was a major change in the area and that there was only "one.
chance to get it right." He said the property was a natural area, and that
the wetlands on the property were very delicate. "I'm just afraid to lose
that." He added that the property was a natural seep area and also was
located on a dead end road.
Marion Lasley asked that the board acquire a letter from TEC con-
cerning their willingness to purchase the sewage system before the issue
was decided.


Several board members were concerned about whether there was a
demand for the property. Maurice Evans, owner of Evans Construction,
was present at the meeting and was asked if the demand was there for the
property. Evans said he has sold out all of his subdivisions before
they were completed. He said he had been in contact with Witt over the
past eight months and felt good about the sale of the property.
A motion to deny the land use change was made with a four- to four tie
requiring vice-chairman John
Yerkes to cast the deciding vote.
In other business:
* The board approved the concep-
tual plat review and preliminary
plat review for The Palms Subdivi- f 0
sion. The Palms Subdivision
request had been tabled so that
owner Latasha Murray and local
residents could work out several
problems that arose in last month's
meeting.A meeting was held at the
Florida National Guard Armory on
June 23.No one was present at the
P and Z meeting to oppose the proj-
ect. A resident of the area, John
Battles, spoke for the project saying
that he liked what Ms. Murray was
doing to about upgrading the area.
The 21 acre 20 lot subdivision
was approved by the board. The
lots range in size from .71 to .76
acres with septic tanks and Talquin
water and'electricity.
The board approved a land use
change for' 8.04 acres from AG-2 to
RR for property owned by Willard
and Gloria Crawford: The property
is on the north side of the Dodger'
Park Road and plans are for it to be "
divided into six lots. :
* The board approved a land use
.change from Ag-2 to RR on 101.16
acres of land located on State Road
267 (Bainbridge Highway):north of
Salter Road and South of Old
Philadelphia Road. The RR desig-
nation allows one home per one
acre, with clustering it can' be as
small as half an acre.
* The board approved the concep-
tual subdivision plan for Winkley
Creek Subdivision. The 19 lot sub-
division is located on 39.61 acres,
on the south side of County Road
161, north of State Road 12 near
Point Millagan.

So You Are
Depressed


Paul F. Joyner, Ph.D.

Depression is one response to fn
tration. In depression there seems
be a mood of sadness, a feeling
the 'blues', a feeling of being wi
ried d paess-.iistic toward life.
Also common to depression is in
rabiliht. Often the person is aware
the problem, but feels unable to co
or to do ian thine to correct it.
I am not speaking about temnpora
bouts of nuld depression "\e son
times retcr to as the 'blue-' or'bei
in the dumps'. These are norn
periods in our lives that sometime
follow an emotionally upsetti
experience.
However, long-lasting periods
depression are symptomatic of.ne
rosis. Many times the depth of t
depression is totally out of prop(
tion to the seriousness of the prc
lem. And one thing we need
understand is that the person th
depressed is, by and large, unable
help themselves.
So often we either say or think tl
the person should 'get a life', p
themselves out of the depression a
get on with life. But the person ca
not do, this. No one is depress
because the,, want to be.
Dr. Cl de Narramore wro
"Depression is a condition mark
by feelings of worthlessness, deji
tion and worry. The depressed p
son is an unhappy individual with
pessimistic outlook on life." T
depressed person may worry cc
stantly over some act commit
years earlier but is unable to remo
the feelings of guilt and concern.
Again, Dr. Narramore writ
"Because he feels unworthy and s
ful, he misinterprets the Word
God by giving attention only
those verses which judge and cc
demn. He seems unable to accept
gracious plan of God's love and f
giveness . .because he feels he
unworthy of love and forgiveness
Sometimes the depressed per
responds to counseling. Some ca
need to see, a medical doctor
medication to aid them in overco
ing the depression.
I invite you to visit The Bere
Church, located south of the
high school building in .Chat
hoochee, FL.

It's Time for a Change
Thank God for sparing and watching over ut through the 4th of July.
Many are not left to tell God 'thank you' for his grace and mercy. To
God be the Glory. Most of us love lettuce on our sandwich; even
lettuce does not stick to the ribs as well as potatoes and gravy but we
Christians need to learn to make a spiritual 'let-us' sandwich: #1-Let us
draw near to God with a true and pure heart, in full assurance of faith
(Heb 10:22 KJV) in order to conquer Satan inrtimes like these.
Many times we fail to draw near to God in prayer as we should. They become too
involved in temporal and selfish interests and desires. So it short-circuits theirfellowship
with God, and fellowship with each other. The family that prays together stays together.
#2-Let us read and study God's Word attentively. Everything else can and will fail (Matt
24:35 KJV). Heaven and earth shall pass away but my Word shall not pass away.
#3-Faithful attendance. Hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering, for he is
faithful that promised (Heb.10:23KJV). IIChrbn.7:14 has not changed: If my people
which are called by my name, shall humble themselves and pray, and seek my face and
tum from their wicked ways, I will hear from Heaven and forgive their sins and heal the
land. #4-Let us admit we are living in a sick world. Satan to be sure is trying to prove
his power physically, mentally, emotionally, etc.'Jesus is still on board the ship regardless
to the wind abd waves of Satan. #5-Let us wake up Jesus, he can speak "Peace, be
still." There is a doctor in the house, but he may ask us "where is our faith?"
Another storm, Dennis, has spared us again-what are we going to do? Another lettuce:
let us present our bodies, mind and soul, to the service of the Lord. Thank you, Jesus.
Humbly submitted,
Florence Mims Bradwell

arships to college thanks to the
2004-2005 major sponsors Envision
Credit Union, and Linda Bianco and
staff of Quincy Cares Medical
Group.
Xavier Jackson received a full
track scholarship to Butler Commu-
nity College in Kansas, Victor Col-
lier received a track scholarship to
Bethune Cookman' College, and
Victor Francis and Phillip Kirkland

Without all of their sponsors it
would be very difficult to run the
track and field program at Est Gads-
den High School, and equally diffi-
cult for well deserving student ath-
letes to attend college.

10 Gadsden County Times auiyi )tb


Midway
Coninued from Page 2
several thousand acres of land
including both residential and com-
mercial property. Currently there is a
housing boom developing with sev-
eral hundred lots becoming avail-
able recently as well as over a hun-
dred new homes being completed or
under construction on the south west
side of the city.
Issues concerning the problems
associated with growth were at the
forefront of the council's agenda last
Thursday night with the pig problem
drawing most of the attention.
City attorney John Williams told the
council he had visited the pig farm
in question. He said that there were
about 80 animals on an acre and a
half of land.
Residents have complained about
the odor that emanats from the prop-
erty and the issue has been before
the council on several occasions.
It was decided at last month's
meeting that Williams would look at
what could be done about removing
livestock from the city. Williams
said the Gadsden County Health
Department, the Florida Department
of Environmental Protection and the
Florida Department of Agriculture
had been contacted concerning the
property and the hog operation. He
said that except for minor problems,
there were no violations. He added
that he had not received any iifor-
mation from DEP.
According to Williams the city did
not have a strong ordinance to stop
livestock from being raised on a res-
ident's property. Williams had con-
tacted the state agencies in hopes
that some of the state's statutes
would help remove the problem for
the city. He said that the odor and
the potential to effect the area's,
water supply had been the catalyst to
draw the state's attention to the
issue. He recommended that the
council adopt a stronger ordinance
to alleviate the problem.
The question then becomes: do
you allow an already existing opera-
tion to stay inside the city limits?
The question of grandfathering in an
already existing hog farm, Williams
said, would be something the coun-
cil must address when drawing up
the new ordinance.
Council member Chuck Willis
was quick to remind ihet'counjil to
be careful when dealing with some-
one's livelihood. He was afraid that
the person with the hog operation
might take the city to court for
harassment.
Mayor Delores Madison added


that she wanted everyone to know,
that the property in question was not
part of the property recently
annexed into the city.
One resident who said she was
related to the person who owned the
hog farm said that no violations had
been found by the state. She added
that the hog pen had existed on the
property for the past 30 years.
No decision was made concerning
the hog operation, but several coun-
cil members are to visit the property
and bring their recommendations
back to the council.
In a related growth matter, the
council found themselves facing a
variance request. Nader Tala plans
to build a grocery store in Midway
just south of the city hall. Tala was
given approval from the city to build
the store earlier this year and was
back before the' council asking that
he be allowed to sell alcoholic bev-
erages.
Midway's ordinance, requires that
any establishment that sells alcohol
be 1,000 feet from any school. Tala's
property is 800 feet from the Mid-
way Head Start facility.
Tala said that he had found out that
the city's requirement was more that
the state's required 500 feet and
asked for the variance.
At the time the council approved
the conceptual plan it was stated that
the building would be inside the
city's required 1,000 foot buffer and
he would not be allowed to sell alco-
holic beverages.
Madison reminded Tala that he
knew the rule at the time he received
the conceptual approval. She said
her main concern was the children at
the Head Start facility. "It is a
real concern having alcoholic bever-
ages so close," She said.
Tala said that he had not been
aware of the possibility of a variance
until he studied up on the subject.
He added that patrons would not be
allowed to open the containers until
they were 500 feet from the prem-
ises.
Council members faced a
dilemma. According to city attorney
Williams the city's charter addresses
issues concerning allowing vari-
ances. The charter requires that the
council establish a board that would
hear any variance request that con-
flicted with already established ordi-
nances such as the required l,0p0
foot alroholchooL.ordinance.
W\illiams said the appointed board
would have the final say in any ordi-
nance variance brought before it.
The Board of Adjustment and
Appeals would be appointed, but act
separately from the council. The
only recourse to the board's decision


for either party he said would be
through the court system.
The council decided to table Tala's
request for further evaluation.
In other business:
SCity manager Paul Piller told coun-
cil members that there Would be a
roll back in the city's millage rate.
He said the city had increased its tax
base by $9 million to $38 million.
Piller added that the city's tax base
had moved to that figure from $14
million in 2002. The roll back would
be six-tenths of a mill from 4.89 to
4.3 mils.


Quincy
Continued from Page 1
He asked McLean who would pay
if All-Tech defaulted on the grant
agreement. McLean said that both
would be obligated. "The state is
going to get their pound of flesh
from someone," McLean said. He
added that the state may look at the
city as its best bet.
Kilmer responded that her com-
pany had hired seven people with
plans to hire two each month to meet
the 12 required by the grant.
She reminded the commission that
the park had been vacant for twelve
years before her company came on
the scene. Kilmer added that if the
city was not willing to work with
All-Tech to satisfy the grant's
requirement that it would send a bad
message to other companies looking
to come to the Quincy Park.
Elias took exception to Kilmer's
remark and said he felt it would send
a message that if a company
intended to come to Quincy it would
need to adhere to the rules.
Gay also responded to Kilmer's
remarks. He said he had been on the
commission for over a year and did
not see anyone from All-Tech until
time was nearly out on the the grant.
Gay said he had heard three com-
missioners that were on the commis-
sion before he was elected ask the
city manager month after month
about the progress of All-Tech and
the grant. He said no information
was forthcoming at the time. "I'm
ready to move forward without All-
Tech," Gay said.
Mayor Sherrie Taylor had con-
cerns about the seven workers
Kilmer said the company has hired.
She said it sounded' like the coin-
prnitWs) riotifserlip skgiit) ajnd
wanted toiggive'thei-i the extension.
"We need an extension either way,"
Taylor said.
Wheh asked if the agreement as
written before any of the changes
'would be acceptable to Kilmer, she
responded that she was not the


owner, that -.
her husband
Larry was
the owner 1
and she
could not
answer for
him.
Elias made
the motion
to approve
the memo-
randum :of
agreement A
that the city
would in
"good faith"
apply for the
six month
extension.
The motion
passed with
Do w de 11, Commission
Taylor, and
Elias voting for the measure and
Gay voting against. Kilmer said she
would let the commissioners know
Wednesday if the company would
except the agreement.
Elias made another motion that the


city
would ask
DCA for
a six
month
extension
S in the
event that
All-Tech
did not
approve
the agree-
ment. The
extension
he said
would
allow the
city an
opportu-
nity to
find
someone
ier Derek Elias to com-
plete the
SDCA requirement. The motion
passed unanimously.
McLean said there was one other
alternative: All-Tech could pay back
the $397,922.
In other business:


McLean presented the commis-
sion with a payback plan for the had
paid $18,000 on Monday and is to
pay $20,000 Friday with a $10,000
payment every other week until the
past due bill is caught up. In addition
he said the hospital would keep its
current bill up to date.
City manager Willie Earl Banks
told commissioners that he should
have a cost for the Shelfer Street
bridge project by the end of the
week. No comment was made about
a time frame for completion.
Utilities director Mo Cox gave
the commission the cost -of the
Shelfer Street Project. The $289,065
project was approved by the com-
mission.
Grant checks for $200,000 each
were presented to the commission
by Banks. The money will be used
for the Robert F "Bobby" Nealy
Golf driving range Phase Two and
Sunset Park.
The commission will meet next
tuesday at 6 p.m. for a workshop
with the Gadsden County Chamber
of Commerce followed by a special
called meeting.

County gets help with juvenile justice


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

Morris Young's requests for help
with rural juvenile problems haven't
fallen on deaf ears.
Friday morning Young met with
some of the movers and shakers
from the Florida Department of
Juvenile Justice (DJJ) and got some
good news. The county's civil cita-
tion program is going to be re-
instated, and the county is first in
line to receive funds from a $62,000
grant for a Neighborhood Account-
ability Board that will also help
keep young people out of the juve-
nile system for minor problems.
Gadsden County will share
equally with Leon and Jefferson
counties in a $100,000 grant for the
civil citation program. The program
takes first-time juvenile offenders
and uses unconventional ways to
curb their inappropriate behavior.
For instance, a juvenile who gets


into a fight and is charged with bat-
tery is placed in the program. The
judge, on the recommendation of the
state attorney, may sentence the per-
son to 20 hours in the program.
"We had the program in the past
and it worked. We have to get their
attention and let them know that
what they did was wrong, but they
don't have to have a criminal
record," Young said.
The aim of the program is deter-
ment. Young said with school start-
ing in a few weeks, the more pre-
vention programs in place for juve-
nile offenders the better.
Drawing on his experience as a
school resource officer, Young 'said
schoolhouse fights over a ball can
escalate into charges being filed and
someone getting into the legal sys-
tem when the problem could have
been solved without criminal
charges. "The key is to educate the
law enforcement officers and let
them know what is available so they


can begin using these programs,"
Young said.
"If the commitment is from the
top, then the programs will work,"
said Steve Casey, deputy director of
DJJ.
The Neighborhood Accountability
Board is the direct result of the over-
representation of minorities in the
juvenile justice system. Young said
a disproportionate number of young
blacks are in the system. Ted Tollet,
director of research and planning for
DJJ, said he is interested in finding
out why the disparity has occurred,
and in correcting it.
The program will be administered
through the school district. "A lot of
arrests are occurring on school
grounds, especially in the middle
schools," Young said.
"You get two kids pushing and
shoving over a football in the morn-
ing, and they don't need to be stand-
ing in front of a judge by afternoon,"
Casey said. Those types of prob-


Wreck claims county's 18th life in '05

The county's 18th traffic fatality
was recorded last Friday morning
when a 21-year-old man was killed
on County Road 65 around 4 a.m.

aggravated by Dennis, but that the
city could have prevented it by act-
ing earlier.
"This always happens. We can't
.even drink the water and we have
water bills over a hundred dollars
sometimes," said Juanita Bell. She
said city officials have known of the
problems a long time and have
failed to take corrective measures.
Bell's neighbor across the street
said she could do without electricity
but that she could not do without
water. To keep the smell at a mini-
mum city workers have spread lime
in yards throughout the affected
area. Wood said he would contact
the Red Cross to find out if some of
the families could get retloc ~itdhf-'
motels.
The health department distributed
information that could help resi-

Another problem facing the city,
and one they need help solving, is
what to do about CSX railroad.
"We've done everything by the
book, and the railroad hasn't done
anything. We could have an addi-
tional 350 homes with a financial
impact to the city of $28 million
dollars and the railroad is holding us,
up without a crossing. Can anybody
here talk to CSX?" Piller asked.
Not really, was the consensus of
the group.

The water may be used for show-

Although the risk of illness is mini-

or have a chronic illness may want
to consider using bottled water or

where they occur.
However, Casey reminded the
group, that while solving the prob-
lem on site might work well in a
rural community the same incident
could escalate in an urban setting.
Still, he said he is disturbed when he
hears of a juvenile tazed at a school.
"When a school says zero toler-
ance, it means suspended from
school, not going to jail," he said.
"In the past two years the civil
citation program wasn't used much.
We tried to handle everything on
campus. When you use the program,
it should instill something in the
children," he said.

Last weekend d in Sneads two
state fast pitch softball tourna-
ments were being hosted. The
Dixie Girls Ponytails (ages 11-
12) and the Belles i 13-14. A
total of 15 teams in the two
divisions \were to battle it out to
see what teams advanced to the
World Series later this month.
I had the pleasure of umpir-
ing in the tournament along
with Bernard Mosley. Jeff Fair-
cloth, Jim Davidson. and Clay
Wells from our local officials
association.
Teams from Bellvie\\. Mel-


By Joe Ferolito


boure. DeSota County. Pasco County.
Clew iston. Chipley. Marianna. Grand Ridge,
and Sneads competed in the tournament.
The Belles tournament got completed
x ith Marianna \ inning the event while the
Ponytails ran into Dennis and their tourna-
ment had to be postponed until this Saturday
with four teams still alive.
The tournament featured some outstand-
ing softball and a number of fine athletes.
A down side was the fact that way too
many adults were standing around the fields
smoking.
The Dixie program should have a policy
that forbids smoking anywhere on the com-
plex that their sports programs are held.


To be honest the City of Sneads should
have an ordinance against smoking on prop-
erty were events are held.
The state has done away with the tobacco
prevention program for all intensive purposes
and that has really hurt on the local level
were the influence of the program could be
felt and issues like preventing smoking at
public events especially those that involve
youth would get backing.
Second hand smoke is dangerous, that's
no myth.
And tobacco use by adults in front of
youth doesn't set a healthy example.
The Dixie program might want to take
that issue up in the immediate future.


SWAT has a 2-2 week as



Dennis wipes out 4 games


SWAT baseball was affected by Dennis like
the rest of the area.
It was to be a busy week for the American
Legion baseball team but after 2 losses last

Bears on Tuesday at TCC. Jeff Home hit a 3
run homer to give SWAT a 4-2 lead against the
Bears in the first game. In the second game
SWAT fell behind 7-0 in the first inning and
was never in the contest.
Thursday SWAT defeated the Tallahassee
Sr. All-Stars 8-6 and 4-0 in a twin bill.


Home hit a 2 run homer in the first game
and Andrew Gay had a pair of rbi's to help
John Travis get the pitching win in relief.
Nathan Bell had 3 hits for the Tallahassee
team.
In game two Colby Smith was the winning
pitcher and Bryant Elkins and Home had rbi's.
SWAT's record is 8-10 and.this week they

and following, Hurricane Dennis.
Under Florida Law, it is unlawful
to charge exorbitant or excessive
prices for essential items including
shelter, food, water, ice, generators,
lumber, gas and lodging following
the declaration of an emergency,
unless the increase in the amount
charged is attributable to additional
costs incurred by the company.
Florida law states a commodity's
price is unconscionable if the
amount charged grossly exceeds the
average price at which the same or


obtainable in the trade area during
the 30 days immediately prior to a
declaration of a state emergency,

charged is not attributable to addi-
tional costs incurred in connection
with the rental or sale of the com-
modity or rental or lease of any
dwelling unit or self-storage facility,
or national o international market
trends.
Individuals or businesses found
guilty of price gouging face fines of
up to $1,000 per violation or up to a
maximum fine of $25,000 a day.
Instances of price gouging should
be reported to the Florida Depart-

Hurricane Dennis had Gadsden County residents scurrying this week...Sunday morning
found last minute preparations underway as residents topped off gas tanks and grabbed
bags of ice, just in case electricity was cut off by the storm. The work began Monday as
several people around Gadsden County found they had a lot of chain saw work ahead of
them. Uprooted trees, most of which caused little damage, were found throughout the
county.

20 Gadsden County Times July 14, 2005


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:
SHaggling 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.
