Hospital

pays on

utilities


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
It wasn't until after the threat of
disconnecting service to Gadsden
Community Hospital that the man-
.agemeht company, Ashford Health-
care; made a payment on its bill.
According to Willie Earl Banks,
city manager, a letter was sent to the
company on July 5 asking for pay-
ment of the $128,000 plus on the
utility bill within 72 hours.
Banks said the company's first
payment of $18,000 was made on
July 7 to avoid interruption of serv-
ice. Another payment of $20,000
.was made on July 14.
"They have promised to pay us
$10,000 every two weeks and to
keep the bill current. They average
about $15,000 per month (in utility
charges)," he said.
He said the company also prom-
ised that payment of the utility bill
will take priority over other ven-
dors.
While no written agreement has
been signed between the two, Banks
says he is confident the company
will live up to the promises it's
made. About a year ago the com-
pany also ran up a large bill because
of failure to pay the.utility bill.
Banks said that Winn-Dixie,
which at one time owed nearly
$50,000, is paying its bill as well.
"They are in bankruptcy as I
understand, but they have started to
pay us," he said.

Life-threatening ordeal


eased by young hero


by BYRON SPIRES
Times Staff Writer
It could easily be a scene from a Mark
Twain story. Two boys go traipsing off to
the woods for an afternoon of fishing and
exploring.
For cousins Alex Clark, 13, and Stirling
Lake, 12, what started out as a summer
afternoon fishing trip would end as one of


the most harrowing few hours of their
young lives.
Clark and Lake had spent several hours
during the hot part of the day last Wednes-
day playing video games and loafing
around Lake's home on Mathew Clark
Road just west of Greensboro.
The pair decided it was time for a fish-
ing trip. The Lakes have a small pond on

The City of Quincy is on sound
financial footing.
As of June 30, 2005, the city's
total cash and securities were
$8,336,007. "No
one with $8 mil-
lion dollars is lJ
broke," said
Finance Director w
Neva Reed.
The city's two i
largest vendors,
Progress Energy
(electricity
provider) and
Municipal Gas "fintc
Authority of Geor-
gia (MGAG, the J eV
gas provider),
account for about
a half million in
debt each month.
Until last year there was no prob-
lem meeting those bills because
rebate checks from electric and gas,
about $500,000, were used to make
the payments regardless of when
utility payments were due.
"The problem is more of timing
than anything else. Both are toward
to end of the month and that falls
between our two billing cycles,"
Reed said.
Two cycles of utility bills are
mailed to customers. On the tenth of
each month 2,237 customers are
mailed utility bills. Those bills are
due by the 25 and account for
approximately $544, 954. The sec-
ond cycle of billing which is mailed
on the.25th of each month accounts
for $1.6 million.
"As it stands, $1.8 million should
be coming in but $1.682 came in the
month of June. This is an example
of how it goes," she said.
Reed said she is tried to convince
commissioners to allow the rebates
to tay in a fund that she referred to
as "float." With that fund, the
money would be in place to pay bills
when they came in and the city
would not have to rely on payments
that come in late.
Commissioners disagreed with
Reed and put the rebate checks into
the general revenue fund.
This year part of that (rebate)
money has been used to buy two

'(


(unbudgeted) utility trucks at nearly
$200,000 and the rest has gone into
reserves.
Reed said she was in the process
of slowly building the reserves and
had in the past two years added
nearly two million back into the
reserve
account,
, o ,ie bringing it up
to over $4
S$ million dol-
lars.
Commis-
io i sioners, how-
k f ever, keep
ke dipping into
reserves.
-ce eDirector They often
ask the city
, ~1eeg manager to
"find" the
money to pay
for unbud-
geted items. It
was during the 2005 budget meet-
ings that commissioners repeatedly
told the manager they wanted a
bare-bones budget. They wanted no
"fat" they said. With nowhere to
"find" money, the reserve is the only
place left.
The city's debt service fund (bills
that must be paid and includes loans
and bonds) accounts for $1,709,542
annually, but when the loans and
bonds are paid those funds will no
longer be expended. One will be
paid off as early as 2007 for
$189,067, which will go back into
the general fund.
What were the loans used for?
The city borrowed money to resur-
face and pave all the streets in the
city.
"It was more than cosmetic. Our
city streets had suffered more than
20 years of neglect. Everything was
just patched. We had so many
claims from citizens who had sus-
tained damage to their automobiles
because of the condition of the
streets. Each time we processed a
claim our insurance rates went up,"
Reed said.
Another loan was used to fix the
city's water problems. "The water
situation was bad. Citizens would
turn on the water and what came out
looked like iced tea. Sometimes the
smell was awful.

Carter-Parramore to house 'at-risk' students


Alternative education
center will triple its
student population

by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
Administrators, teachers, parents, and even
students have lamented for years that if the


handful of trouble makers were removed from
the schools, everything would be a lot better
for everyone.
No one wanted these teens, some with
behavioral problems kicked out on the street.
What they needed, everyone agreed, was a
place for alternative education. A place to
house all of the students who have shown
through actions or been labeled "at-risk" -
with programs that would cater to their indi-
vidual needs.


This fall, Carter-Parramore Academy is to be
that place.
The school population is expected to triple
from 125 students to more than 300. They are
likely to be in grades 4-12, and most will be
overage as a result of being held back at least
twice. "The students will be selected fairly
from all schools. The Instructional Technical
Systems staff at the district office will be able
to pull the records of the students to determine
who will be coming here," said Lillie Jackson,


principal.
The complex, which opened its doors in the
fall of 1956, has gone from a high school, to
middle school, to special needs academy.
Housed on the school's grounds will be
Carter-Parramore Academy, Windrush Acad-
emy, New Horizon EH Center, Boldstep Infant
Care Centre, and Teen Parenting Program.
Jackson said that, for the first time since the
school became C-P Academy, they will have a

Winds and rain wiped out Michael Brown's tobacco crop this year.

Dennis menaces local farmer


by ALICE DU PONT
Times editor

Things were looking up for
local farmer Michael Brown this
year. The government had lifted
restrictions on tobacco and he had
25 acres of prime plants ready to be
topped out to maximize the growth.
In tobacco alone he expected to
make $50,000 this year. "That was
my money crop," Brown said.
Then Hurricane Dennis came to
Florida bringing with it just enough
wind and rain to ruin Brown's
crops. "It's about as bad as it can
get. Look at this, the tobacco is
laying down. I should be cutting
these blooms out right now," he
said last week, walking through 25
acres of tobacco that can't be sal-
vaged. Earlier in the year Brown
invested in a machine that would
remove the blooms. Thursday
afternoon Brown said the tractor
that pulls the machine cannot get
between the rows. "I would have to
straighten every one of these plants
by hand and then there is no guar-
antee that they would survive," he
said. It would cost him $5,000 to
hire field hands to make the stalks
right and that is iffy, too.
Three weeks before Hurricane
Dennis the county was hit by heavy
rains. "I was able to bounce back
from that. But I can't bounce back
from 'Dennis the Menace,' he
said.


Brown's other crops have been
hit hard as well. "My watermelons
are looking bad. They've started
popping in the fields. The fruit
should be headed for the market,
Brown said. The story is the same
for his field of purple hull peas.
More rain would rot the plants and
encourage worms. Thursday was
spent in the fields harvesting what
was left and shelling them for mar-
ket. Brown's pea sheller was
working overtime, spitting shelled
peas as fast as they were brought in
from the fields. The race was on to
save as many peas as possible.
Charles Brown, Michael's
father, said six acres of butter
beans he had planted were simply
blown off the vines. "It would have
been a good crop," said the elder
Brown. This is the first time any-
thing like this has happened to
Brown in all of his years of farm-
ing, he said.
"The news media keep saying
that Dennis didn't do that much
harm. Well, maybe not where they
were, but here he left a big prob-
lem," Michael said. Now it is too
late to plant another crop of tobac-
co or the vegetables.
He was waiting for another visit
from the insurance adjuster and
keeping a watchful eye on dark
clouds forming in the west. "That's
what I don't need," he said, "is
more rain."

Property owners in town to check
on their rental property couldn't find
their renter, 31-year-old Todd Jef-
fery Horton, last month. But they
did find that the home they rented
him in 2003 had been turned into an
indoor marijuana-growing opera-
tion.
According to information released
by the Gadsden County Sheriff's
Office the investigation began in
June and ended with Horton's arrest
last Wednesday. He was charged
with cultivation of marijuana, pos-
session with intent to distribute mar-
ijuana, distribution of marijuana,
and felony criminal mischief. Hor-
ton was arrested after law enforce-
ment agents watching the property
saw him enter the house and cut
buds from the marijuana plants. He
has, according to the report, con-
fessed his involvement in the grow-
ing and distribution.
Inv. Matt Rowan of the GCSO
Drug Unit said when the property
owners came to inspect their proper-
ty at 253 My Street in the Wayside
Farms area, north of Havana, they
found the house in "very poor con-
dition with the appearance that no
one was living on the property."
Utility service to the property was
on and several air conditioning units
had been install in windows. "The
owners of the property looked
through' one of the bedroom win-
dows and observed marijuana plants
growing," Rowan said.-
When the GCSO drug unit
received this information, an inves-
tigation began and a search warrant
was issued. Members of the drug
unit and agents from the Drug
Enforcement Administration (DEA)
were then able to enter the house.
They found the property filthy, with
dirt from the growing process
imbedded in the carpets, and water
used on plants had rotted the floor in
many spots. "The residence was
totally set up as a greenhouse,"
Rowan said.
Authorities found 61
young or started plants in one bed-
room where large fluorescent lights
on a timer had been installed. Two
other bedrooms in the house were
used to grow larger plants. "These


rooms contained a total of 37
plants," Rowan said. They. too were
well lit and the temperature was
controlled. Throughout the house
fertilizer bags, ice chests containing
plant bedding materials, and tanks
containing carbon dioxide to aid the
growth process was found.'In the

A man wanted for murder in Talla-
hassee last week was arrested with-
out incident in Gadsden County
around noon Sunday.
Danny Joe Brown, 21 of Midway.
was wanted in confection with .the
shooting ofMylon Devore Lowe of
Tallahassee, who was found dead in
his apartment July 11.
Sgt. Brian Alexander of the Gads-
den County Sheriff's, Office said
Brown was taken into custody at a
house off High Bridge Road near
Old Federal Highway. "They saw us
coming in the yard. A female came
outside and said we cbuld go ir the
house. He (Bro" n) didn't say aty-
thing, he didn't give any statements:
All he said was that he wanted to
talk to his lawyer," Sgt. Alexander
said. Brown did not live at the rest-
dence and it is unclear whether or
not he is related to anyone % ho lives
at the rural home.
Brown was arraigned in Gadsdep
County Monday morning before he
was transported to Tallahassee Mon-
day afternoon. He had warrants in
Tallahassee on charges. of felony
murder, home invasion, grand theft
of a firearm and possession of a
firearm by a convicted felon.:
Sgt. Alexander said GCSO was
notified that the Tallahassee Police
Department had been tipped that
Brown was in Gadsden County and
gave the address. "I was surprised.
We brought the dog out and every-
thing. He was considered armed and
dangerous, but he came out like a
normal everyday guy," he said..


living room, authorities found large
stacks of dried marijuana stalks.
The dining room area was set up
with a tank and paraphernalia to
mold glassware, which is common-
ly used to smoke marijuana.
Law enforcement was able
to learn from documents found
inside the house that the growing
operation had begun in the spring of
2003, about the same time as Horton
..rented the place.
Because of the drug grow-
ing activity, the house was ruined
and damage was estimated at


$20,000. Marijuana grown indoors
is a high quality plant and the street
value of the marijuana that could
have been harvested is in excess of
$75,000.
Authorities also credit resi-
.dents and members of the Wayside
Farms Neighborhood Watch Pro-
gram for assisting.

concerning illegal drugs or suspi-
cious activity is asked to call the

PINIONS


ontemplations


By: .lice DuPont
I don't get as many as I once did, I guess that's
because most people know by now that those
(always) unsigned pieces of trash will only end
up in my trash can. I'm talking about anonymous
letters. And I thank those of you who have
stopped it. At one time I was getting two or three
a week. Most of them were, at best, mean spir-
ited. The thing that all of them had in common is


the fact that they were critical of
one individual. The people who
were the subject of the letters


changed, but the content was the
same: attempts to smear a person
and use this newspaper to help
them do it.
Anonymous letter writers never have anything
good to say. They have meticuously found as
much dirt as they can dig up and with a wide
shovel started to spread it. These. worms, and
that's vWhat I like to call them, slink around in the
middle of the night putting letters under doors, in
mailboxes or mailing them in cheap, plain white


envelopes. All in an attempt to prevent anyone
from revealing their identity. Woodward and
Burnstein really messed up some minds with
"Deep Throat" because a lot of folks have taken
on the persona.
I don't care for worms.,If your point is valid
and you really believe in what you're saying, be
man or woman enough to stand behind those
statements. I got such a letter Tuesday. It was a
single-spaced page full of accusations, criticisms,
and whole lot of finger pointing at several city
employees. I felt sorry for the letter writer
because the letter, in my opinion, reflected the
writer as weak, a whiner, and a coward.


I suspect it took the person some time to gather
the points that were so poorly made it sounded
like gossip letters little homely girls in elemen-
tary school write about the cute girls in the class.
It really was a sad commentary on the adult who
made statements that could not be substantiated.
The letter sounded like it came from someone
who has long wanted acceptance. The letter was a
way of gaining favor, I-suppose, from those who
probably held the same feelings.
Change is hard for some people to take. Some
never accept it. But like it or not, this is the year
2005 and things are different. What was the good
old days for some was hell for others.


finding Roads


By: Byron Spires NI

A young fellow, Alex Clark, was bitten by what appears to be a
very large rattlesnake last week. There is a story in this week's
paper about the ordeal that he and his cousin Stirling Clark went
through. They are both very level headed and brave young men
and because of that Alex is going to be alright.
Monday afternoon I visited with Stirling. He, his dad Mark and
I went on a little trek to the place where the snake incident
occurred.
It is a pretty good ways into the woods and if I were a snake I
would have certainly felt at home. Since I am not a snake I felt a
little uncomfortable and kept my eyes glued to the ground just in
case there happened to be a relative of the snake that bite Alex
lurking near by.
Our trip was pretty much mundane, in other words we didn't see
a snake of any kind.
But, there was something about that walk in the woods that
afternoon that brought.back a lot of good memories for me.
I understand why Alex and Stirling were spending time walking
through the woods; You see it's almost a right of passage for young
fellows to explore. I know, I did a lot of it myself.
When I was growing up I spent a lot of time in the woods
exploring.


Me and several of the neighborhood boys along with a couple of
dogs would go on long safaris in the woods near our homes.
There are very few things, as thrilling as finding a little stream
deep in the woods you didn't know existed.
Of course,, what is the purpose of finding a stream if you don't
dam it up. There is probably not a trickle of water on the east side
of Quincy where I grew up that hasn't,been dammed up at least a
dozen times.
If you have ever been in the woods you know that there are little
trails that seem to criss-cross each other. I was always intrigued by
those trails and often wondered what little creatures or even big
creatures traveled along its winding path.
Sometimes for the fun of it we would follow one of those trails
in hopes of finding out what kind of animal, would be at the end of
it.
I don't believe we ever found the end of those trails if my mem-
ory is correct. It's probably good that we didn't, I don't know if we
could have fought a bear or mountain lion off with just a Barlow
knife and sharp stick.
Those were fun times wandering through the woods, taking in
nature at its best far away from the noise of cars and streets.
There is a quietness about the woods that is different than any
other place you may go, Yes, there are the sounds of birds singing
or the occasional bee buzzing by, but it's still quiet.
It is the silence between the sounds I think that is so soothing. I
guess it is the way you can feel nature all about you that makes it
so different.
I also think it is what you find in the woods that makes it so
interesting.
Let me give you an example.


Many years ago a friend and I were scouting out a duck pond in
Jefferson County.
We drove his truck as far down an old tram road as we could
and walked about a mile back in the woods to the pond.
On the way we crossed several dilapidated old fence rows. At
one of those fences far into the woods sat a pair of high top work
boots. They were laced up and facing the fence.
The old worn leather boots appeared to be left there as if some-
one intended to come back and get them at some later date. When I
saw them they were being overtaken by ground vines that nearly
obscured them from view.
I've often \\ wondered why they were left there like that and if
there was some sort of a story attached to that pair of work boots.
But, then that is what being in the woods is about, new discov-
eries and getting close to nature.
If you happen to be in the woods, especially this time of year, be
careful. The woods are a great place to visit, but there is a certain
amount of danger involved. You need to be alert and watch for
snakes and if you are alert enough you might even see a pair of old
shoes too.

School
from p. 1

physical education teacher, a guid-
ance counselor, a health center and,
a school psychologist. "We will
continue to .wear uniforms, (they
have been for the past seven years).
I can't say what the students at the
other centers will wear, that's some-
thing I will need to discuss with the
principals, but they will not walk
around here with their pants down
and their shirt tails out," she said.
Here is a brief description of the
role and scope of each school/pro-
gram housed at the site:
CARTER-PARRAMORE ALTER-.
NATIVE EDUCATION. ACAD-
EMY
The program is designed to
operate as a school and as such is
not to be considered a full-fledged
school but rather an extension of
the various schools in the district.
Students who graduate from the
program will receive a diploma
with their home school designated
as the school of graduation and
their permanent records will reflect
the same. The program is designed
to remove some of the problems
students face when they fall aca-
demically behind, and are older
than the other students on their
grade level. Some students in the
program may be socially malad-
justed.
There will be some students in
the program who, for various rea-
sons, have not been successful at
another school and are at risk of
dropping out.
The alternative program will place
particular emphasis on vocational
awareness and preparation. Stu-
dents enrolled in the program must
enroll in a vocational course each
semester and demonstrate some
degree of skill mastery by the end
of the course. This will be a require-
ment of all students, regardless of
grade level. Middle school students
will be required to enroll in
exploratory vocational courses but
may (with a recommendation) take
a vocational course of credit at the
8th grade level.
Admission to the program is by


The front entrance to Carter-Parramore' Alternative Education Academy.

application and is voluntary. Par-
ents must agree to the student's
enrollment in writing if the student
is less than 18 years old. An admis-
sions committee, established by the
school, will review all applications
and the students will be admitted on
a first-come-first-served basis. The
superintendent will have the final
say on admissions. Those who want
to enroll must meet at least one of
nine .requirements that will be
explained by the program's princi-
pal.
To withdraw from the school,
the students must have the permis-
sion of the parent if he or she is
under 18. Once a student has with-
drawn they may return to their
home school. A student who has 15
or more unexcused absences within
a 90 calendar-day period could be
involuntarily withdrawn from the
program.
WINDRUSH ACADEMY
This Academy is a cooperative
venture' between the .Gadsden
County Public Schools, the Depart-
ment of Juvenile Justice, local law
enforcement agencies, the Depart-
ment of Children and Families,
Capital City Youth Services and
other agencies. The students served
are considered "at-risk" with severe
behavioral problems. Windrush will
serve all expelled students and


those who are in transition from a
Department of Juvenile Justice res-
idential facility.
Enrollment for the program will be
for expelled students, certain non-
expelled students, or those .sen-
tenced by the courts to attend a
transition program before returning
to a regular school.
To be admitted to'the Academy
as a non-expelled student, the stu-
dent must have a history of suspen-
sions and/or referrals for mild to
severe disruptive behaviors or a
history that indicates two or more
acts such as: endangering the safety
and well being of others; persist-
ently interfering with the orderly
learning environment; involvement
with weapons, drugs, or alcohol-
related activities; or a history of
juvenile justice detentions and
being required to wear an electronic
monitoring device.
Once a student has been
accepted to the Academy, a school'
representative will contact the par-
ents or a court representative to set
up an appointment for the enroll-
ment process. At the conference
goals, rules, and expectations will
be discussed with the student and
parents. Parents must sign a Parent
Support Contract at the time of
enrollment as well as other required
documents. An individual educa-


tional plan will be developed for
each student outlining academic
and behavioral goals and objec-
tives.
The length of time a student
stays in the program will be deter-
mined by the length of the expul-
sion or by the Department of Juve-
nile Justice. Students could stay
longer, but can be withdrawn at any
time if documented discipline
records indicate the program is not
working for the student. Each stu-
dent will be monitored for conduct,
attendance, attitude, and academic,
performance during each grading
period. Course work will be as
close as possible to the course work
of the student had in regular school.
Transportation to and from the
school will be provided. Students
expelled from school will not be
permitted to ride to or from school
on a bus with non-expelled stu-
dents, except those in transition.
\NEW HORIZON SPECIAL SER-
VICES CENTER
New Horizon is a day treatment
program that provides intensive
educational, therapeutic and family
services to adolescents with serious
emotional, therapeutic and family
problems. These students have been
identified as having severe behav-
ioral problems that have hindered
them from adequately performing


in a regular classroom setting.
In general, these students have dis-
played a wide variety of inappropri-
ate, disruptive, and maladaptive
behavior. Some of the behavior
includes but is not limited to physi-
cal aggression, running away, and
noncompliance to requests made by
adults. It'is common for the stu-
dents to have deficiencies that will
not allow-them to make and keep
friends, be organized or remain on
task, listen to and follow instruc-
tions, or work through problems.
They persist in ignoring or provok-
ing others.
The treatment program is
designed to reduce the behavioral
excesses, displayed by the students
and to teach them new behavior that
will help them function better. The
typical student admitted to New
Horizon has a long history of
behavior problems that interfere
with learning, and requires a con-
sistent and predictable environ-
ment. Students admitted to this pro-
gram must go through a staffing
process that serves students with
disabilities such as emotionally
handicapped to severely emotion-
ally disabled.
TEENAGE PARENTING PRO-
GRAM
The primary goal of this pro-
gram is to provide opportunities for
pregnant students and students who
are already parents to stay in school
and earn a high school diploma.
The focus of the program is on


problems associated with early
pregnancy and parenting, low birth
rate, infant mortality, and infant
wellness for a healthier future. The
program is non-compulsory and
must be on a voluntary basis, and
must have parental approval if the
student is under 18 years old.
The secondary goal of the pro-
gram is to provide a way for these
teenage parents to get involved in
real-life child care issues through
the Boldstep Infant Care Centre.
The centre is a daycare facility for
babies of teenage parents while the
parents attend school in the district.
Bus transportation is provided
for the infant and student through
the school district, which has
approved seating for infants and
toddlers. The Department of Chil-
dren and Family Services and the
local' health department provide
approved services to infants receiv-
ing day care services. It is equipped
with appropriate furniture and toys
that promote and atmosphere of
concern, care, and learning. Health
care and curriculum services are
provided by the school district and
the Gadsden County Health Depart-
ment. They include pre- and post-
natal care, infant care, nutrition,
and birth control. Social services
are coordinated through Childreni
and Family Services and include
referrals for WIC, AFDC, and Pro-
ject Independence.
All of the programs should be ready
when school opens August 15.

Library's summer enrichment program
features African dance performance


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
The distinctive sound of the
pulsating beat of African drums
broke through the usual quiet at
the Gadsden County Public


Library Monday night as the
Caribbean African Dance The-
atre, Inc. kept both children and
adults on the edges of their
seats.

First "Ivey's Outings" is a success


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
Six boys living in a rural com-
munity can'get pretty bored dur-
ing the summer. Their ordinary
energy is no longer challenged
with the rigors of school work
and they need an outlet. In steps
Deputy Scott ivey of the Gads-
den County Sheriff Office.
Last Friday, afternoon, Ivey
and deputies Paul McMichael,
Anthony Brown and Jennifer
Buckhalt loaded the boys up and
off they went for an overnight
stay at the Wallwood Boy Scout
'Camp near Quincy. It was a first


time experience for the boys,
ranging in age from 9 to 12 years
old. "It was. great for the kids
and for us, too," Deputy Ivey
said.
Ivey, a school resource officer
at Stewart Street Elementary
School, said the boys can be a
handful. All of them are students
at the elementary school and he
has known them for several
years. Friday afternoon the kids
road bicycles on the professional
BMX race track at the camp and
went swimming. "Dave Jamin-
,son, director of the \\tll\\ood.
Boy Scout Camp, was -fantastic.
They provided everything from


set the stage for the performance
that included several drum
selections and dances. Marcus
Robinson, the troupe's manager
took the opportunity to teach the
audience a little about the instru-
ments and the African culture.
The Tallahassee-based cul-
tural education organization was
part of the library's summer
enrichment program aimed at
broadening the horizons of chil-
dren and teaching them about
other cultures. At the end of the
program children were invited to
learn a dance or play drums
with help from professionals.
The African-American Dance
Theatre is no stranger to north
Florida as they have wowed
audiences for the past twelve
years. They perform regularly at
festivals, concerts, weddings
and other special occasions.
They also teach drum and dance
classes. For more information
about upcoming programs, call
Kris at 627-7106.


the bicycles to fishing poles and
bait to meals. They really went
out of their way and we appreci-
ate it," Ivey said.
When it was time to bed down
for the night, Ivey said the boys
wanted to talk and talk. "I think
they really enjoyed the outing
although we had to cut our stay
about two hours short because of
the hurricane," he said.
Ivey's aim is to make the out-
ings a monthly event and have
kids from around the county par-
ticipate. Kids participating in
"Ivey's Outings" don't have to
pay for anything. The GCSO
picks up the tab. "The sheriff
made it clear to me that he wants
these kids to be taught crime
prevention and crime education.
He wants them to know there is
another way," he said.
The first "Ivey's Outings"
participants were: Frederick
Anderson, Treavon Rawls, Xza-
vier Foster, Demario Austin,
Antwan Wade, and Trevon
Owens. When it was time to
leave, Ivey said the boys all had
Sthe same question, "When are
we going back?"
For more information on the
program or to volunteer, call
SDeputy Ivey at the Gadsden
.County Sheriff's Office at.627-

It's Time for a Change
Lord, we just want to thank you for all of your loving mercy through
the storm and rain. Your loving care remains the same. "Why art thou
cast down, oh my soul?" We should still hope in God; we should still
praise Him (Psalm 47:11). We still have so much to thank Him for,
thank Him for our leaders' protection, for sharing and caring for the
needy in time of storms, etc, risking their lives to help others. May God
reward and protect them while in the line of duty. Help us all not to be
discouraged in these trying times. We Christians must be encouraged to witness for God
in order to help others. We must claim the promises of God which are given to us that
we might be partakers of the divine nature (II Peter 1:4 KJV). We must reclaim the
presence of God. James 4:8 says, "Draw nigh to God and He will draw nigh to you."
We reclaim God's presence by seeking forgiveness and cleansing for our neglect as we
so often do. We must receive the Holy Spirit to lead and guide us.' We need to continue
to seek the Lord and praise Him regardless. We must search the Scripture and find in
the Word of God what His word promised. And in any situation stand on His promise.
God cannot lie, we must meet the condition, whatever it takes. Its time for a change.
We brought nothing into this world, we can take nothing out. We need to seek the Lord
until we find Him. The entire world needs to know God is in control. We need to be
prepared to meet the Lord whatever way he comes or calls. Lord, save us all. Man
power can fail after all. Jesus is the only safe place. Thanks for the shelters as the storm
of life is still raging. Lord, shelter us sprirtually and naturally.
Thank you, God.
Humbly submitted,
Florence Mims Bradwell

Snake bite
Continued from Page 1

their property, but another pond
deep in the woods behind the
Lake's property is where the fishing
pair decided to try their luck. The
young Lake had caught a whopper
over 30 inches long in the pond on
a previous trip and it was more than
speculation that there would be
another one of the same size.
The boys rode the family's Gator,
a four wheel ATV to the dam of the
first pond. Once there, they gath-
ered their fishing equipment for the
nearly quarter-mile trek into the
woods to the "big fish" pond.
There is no direct route to the
pond, you must meander through
an oak thicket covered with thick
vines and multi-colored woods spi-
ders with webs that stretch across
nearly every turn.You next
encounter a blackberry patch cov-
ered in sticky briars followed by a
planted pine field with a 30 foot
pine canopy of limbs overhead. The
ground is covered in ankle high
grass and pine straw as far as you
can see.
: A few more yards and you are
walking along a fire trench. There,
standing in the edge of the pine
field hidden among a handful of
half grown oaks is a deer stand.
Something for two boys to climb.
It was at the deer stand that the two
boys would have a meeting with
fate.
"Alex said he wanted to climb up
in the deer stand and went ahead of
me to be the first on the ladder,"
Lake said. Clark would not make it
to the first rung. In an instant an
eastern diamondback rattlesnake
struck Clark, not once, but twice on
the leg just above his brogan shoes
and through his blue jeans pant leg.
Clark yelled back at Lake, who

said.
Young arrived at the Lake house
a few minutes later along with sev-
eral deputies and Greensboro Police
Chief Morgan Markham. When he
entered the house he saw Alex and
knew he was having a lot of prob-
lems.
"I told him that he was going to
be alright and that he needed to be
calm and not move around," Young
said.
Only a few minutes passed before
the EMTs arrived. They loaded
Alex into the ambulance. Alex
needed the care of both paramedics,
so Young drove the ambulance to
the landing zone at West Gadsden
High School, as Alex was on his
way to meet the life flight for the
trip to Tallahassee Memorial Hos-
pital. Young also made arrange-

Young reacted
to the incident.
"They were

and I know that
is why Alex is


going to survive this," Mark Lake
said.
His wife Dawn agreed. 'They
were all just great," she added.
The young Lake's day was not
over. He took two deputies, Lt.
Lavon Jackson, who has a back-
ground in dealing with poisonous
snakes, and Deputy Brian Fason
back to the scene of the bite to look
for the snake. There have been sev-
eral trips to look for the snake, and


it has not been found. It was sug-
gested later that the snake was
probably an older female four to six
feet long. The fang marks on Alex's
leg were 1.5 inches apart.
"Stirling is the biggest reason
Alex is alive. His quick thinking,
being calm and not panicking he
did everything right," Young said
about the young hero.
Approximately an hour and a half
after Alex was bitten he was receiv-
ing his first anti-venin at TMH.
Alex has been in the hospital for
the past week and according to his
mother, Jane, he could be there
another week.
She and Lamar have been by
their son's side throughout the
whole ordeal. They have seen the
effects of a bad rattlesnake bite first
hand. She said they have been told
that no one has seen a double bite
before.
Alex has also faced another
obstacle. An average bite requires
between 12 and 30 doses of anti-
venin. So far Alex has received
over 130 doses Jane said. It is hard
she said to keep up with the exact
numbers, because there have been
so many.
One of the reasons for the mas-
sive doses is the volume of venom
injected into Alex by the snake.
The venom causes swelling and as
the swelling subsides the body
releases more venom. The half
life of the anti-venin is 12 hours
Shich means the effects start wear-
ing off in about 12 hours and
another dose is needed.
Alex's mother has a lot of praise
for all of those that were involved
in helping her son. She said
the doctors and staff at TMH had
bent over backwards to keep her
son alive.
"They have been wonderful." She
was also thankful to those who
responded to the emergency call for
her son.
Jane had a special thank you to


sheriff Morris Young. "I am glad
that he is our sheriff. He was right
there when our family needed him.
He is such a caring and sincere
man."
She also has praise for her son
who has faced this experience in
his life with a maturity beyond his
years.
"Alex has a strong faith. He
knows that he is being taken care
of," Jane said. She also thanks
God for seeing her family through
this ordeal. "God has had a
hand in everything that has hap-
pened."
About the future she said that it
may take several months for Alex
to recover, but then he will have his
best buddy and cousin Stirling to
spend some quality time with and
catch up on those video games.

what is remaining on a monthly
basis on the expenditures. The
report does the same with revenues.
For example, in the Building and
Planning Department, a total of
$436,797 was budgeted for the cur-
rent year. In June, the department
spent $22,843.45; to date from the
beginning of the Oct. 1 fiscal year,
$218,629.45 has been spent by the
department or 50.05 percent of their
total budget, leaving them with
$218, 167.55 for the remainder of
the year.
By contrast, the new report also
shows revenues. Under licenses and
permits, the budget reflects an
expectation to raise $62,500. In
June the amount that collected was
$9,637.76. Since October,
$58,253.55 or 93.21 percent has
been collected. To meet budget
expectations, that department needs
a minimum of $4,246.45 by the end
of the fiscal year.
"It is my hope and intention that
this new.form will make it simpler
so that the misunderstandings can
be a\ oided." she said.
The reports are public record and
any citizen who wants to read them
may request one from city hall dur-
ing regular business hours.

ties between the

cient and effective system

public throughout the region

provide enhanced electrical
grid support throughout

that the electrical service
will be secure, reliable,and
sufficient to support the pro-
jected future area needs.

sion capacity and support,
enhance its capacity to

tric power system and per-
form its statutory obligation

PHIL STEELE'S COLLEGE FOOTBALL 2005 IS
AT THE NEWS STANDS
I still feel Phil Steel's annual College Football Pre-
view magazine is the best one on the market every
year. It's the one I get by far the best information from
each season. The magazine has the best in depth look


at all the conferences and teams as well as great scout-
ing reports on individual players. Like the cover says
it's JAMPACKED WITH INFORMATION.
There are great predictions even down to who will
play in each respective bo wl game. Like everyone else
Steel's magazine doesn't hit on all it's prediction but
the magazine is a great study for college football fans
and just scanning through it can get your pig skin
juices flowing.
By the way the magazine picks USC to win it all
again. That's nor surprising, how could you not pick
them as the reigning national champs return just about
everybody and should march through a weak Pac Ten
schedule.
As for state teams Steel feels Miami n ill finish 6th
in the country. Florida llth. and FSU 13th. Why they'll
finish in those spot is in the magazine. If you pick
one up you'll probably read something in it everyday
before. during and probably e\en after the football sea-


son. I
PALMERIO GETS 3.000
It's a feat only 26 players have accomplished. 3.000
hits in the major leagues. Rafael Palmeiro reached that
milestone last Friday and with it became only one of
four players that have 3.000 hits and 500 homers.
The next player in line appears to be Craig Biggio
of Houston. Biggio had 2,732 hits as of Tuesday and
with a little luck could reach the 2.800 mark by the
season's end.
Though 40 and at the end of a solid career, I think
Biggio would stick around long enough to make the
mark.
Next in line is Berry Bonds at 2.730. His career is
still a question mark and if he does return he'll worry
more about breaking Hank Aaron's home run mark
than he will about reaching the 3.000 hit level.
By the way I got to see one player reach that mark.
I was in Tropicana Field the night Wade Boggs got his


magic 3,000th hit in 1999. It was truly enjoyable to be
in attendance at such an event.
TRI-CITY HEADED TO MUSCLE SHOALS
Clay Wells, Chattahoochee's Recreation Director.

sultry four and a half hour game.
The two teams matched run for

18 Gadsden County Times July 21, 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:
*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.

We sell all of our cars at
