Over 100 prison employees reap thousands in stock settlement


y ALICE DU PONT
times Editor
At one time the Gadsden Correctional
facility, called "the Gretna prison" by
ocals, was owned and operated by a com-
'pany named U.S. Corrections (USC). The
company was headquartered in Louisville,
KY, and was the first company to operate the
facility. They hired and trained the first
employees in 1994 and 1995. Those
i


employees, as part of the benefits package,
were allowed to purchase stock in the com-
pany through payroll education.
Several years later USC sold the company
to Corrections Corporation of America
(CCA), which still operates the facility.
When USC sold, those employees who pur-
chased stocks were paid fairly, or so they
thought.
Fast forward eight years and those employ-
ees were notified last week that they were


not paid fairly and are entitled to more
money. It seems that the USC owners
received more compensation in the form of
interest on the money they invested from the
sale of stocks than was revealed.
Several employees of USC sued the own-
ers and were successful. Other employees
who were affected were notified and joined
in a class action lawsuit. The employees pre-
vailed and about one million dollars will be
divided among 150 to 175 Gadsden County


people who worked at the prison in late
1994 and 1995 and who paid into the
Employee Stock Ownership Plan. "The
amounts will.vary depending on how much
they made and how long they worked there,
about half will get between $12,000 and
$15,000," said Doug Richards, one of the
attorneys who argued on behalf of the
employees.
Richards said there are two groups of peo-
ple involved. "One group was given a distri-


bution (paid) in 1997. Then, there are those
who worked at least 500 hours in 1997 (but
didn't get paid).
Auburn Ford was among the first hired
when the prison opened. He said he was
contacted several months ago and provided
a list of names the attorneys were unable to
track down. "Some of them have moved
away, but I told them the ones I knew about.
A lot of people want to keep it quiet because

Thomas put the Board of County
Commissioners on notice that if
they continue with the plan to cut
his office by 38 percent or $183,000


for the next fiscal year, he's going to
take them to court. Thomas said he

If the cut becomes a reality, Thomas

'ather shoots son to death after argument


,y ALICE DU POINT
Times Editor

Urich Jones would have turned 23 years
old Monday. But he was killed early Satur-
day morning with a single gunshot to the
chest. The person who pulled the trigger was
his father, 47-year-old Terry Jones.
According to Sgt. Matt Rowan, an investi-
gator with the Gadsden County Sheriff's
Office, this is what happened:

eyes money

shortfall

...again

by BYRON SPIRES
Times Staff Writer
Financial woes again plague Quincy city
commissioners.
City finance director Neva; Reed told
commissioners at last week's regular com-
mission meeting that there was a shortfall
in the city's operating and maintenance
fund. The fund is used to pay the city's
bills.
After a lengthy discussion the commis-
sioners felt they needed a workshop to
understand exactly what the problem was
and what could be done to correct the prob-
lem.
In Reed's financial report given to the
commission at that meeting she noted that
the O and M account did not have enough
money in it to meet 60 days of cash needs
See FINANCES on Page 20


The men were at the same club in Chatta-
hoochee Friday night when, after an argu-
ment, the two began to fight.
Rowan said the younger Jones beat his
father "pretty good." The father wefit home
and called the authorities to report the inci-
dent. Battery charges were made against the
younger Jones.
Terry Jones and deputies went back to the
club, but Urich Jones had left. Rowan said
that several witnesses overheard Terry Jones


Terry Jones


Ulrich Jones


say "If ya'li don't get him first, I'm going to
end up killing him."
Sometime early Saturday morning between
3:30 and 4 a.m., Urich went to his father's
house, jumped the gated property and
started banging on the back door, which
opened into the bedroom.
"There was a chest of drawers next to the
door which had a pistol in it. The father went
outside and the two started to sh9ve each
other back and forth. As dad shoved the son,


the gun went off, hitting him in the chest.
The son never lived with his fatherland he
never had access to the father's home,"
Rowan said.
Rowan said the investigation is continuing
and that all of the evidence will be turned
over to the State's Attorney.
From there, it will probably go to the
Grand Jury and they will determine what
charges, if any, will be filed against the
father.


Alleged burglar caught in act; charged in 3 others


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
In a quiet neighborhood off Old Federal
Road, south of the Quincy city limits, people
go about their business daily. They love their
families, their pets, they go to work, they
pay their taxes, and they enjoy the rural life.
They don't like having their homes burglar-
ized. Lately it has been happenening all too
frequently.
Burglaries in the area have homeowners
wary about leaving home, and law enforce-
ment frustrated by being a few steps behind
the criminals.
Monday morning, everybody got a break.
A homeowner, acting on a hunch, asked her
supervisor if she could leave work to check
on her home. She arrived home minutes
after the burglar. He was still standing
almost in her yard.
Mario Curry, 22, had run out of time too,
because in less than an hour later deputies
had him in custody, and at least three other
burglaries had allegedly been solved. He is
in the county jail charged with armed rob-
bery, armed burglary of a dwelling, and
grand theft.
"I saw him on the property. When I walked
into my house I knew immediately we had

Increased fuel cost causes fiscal adjustments


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

The price for oil is at an all-time
high. It hasn't taken long for the
effects to trickle down to the con-
sumer, either. Going to fill up the
gas tank in the car cbuld mean a trip
to the ATM for some. "Last month I
filled up for $40 today I'm over
3$50 and it's still not full," said one
ioman as she pumped gas into the
jorr utilty vehicle. Individual driv-
s are complaining about gas, but
me local officials are seeing red.
t Jay Corbett, director of finances
ifor the school board said the hike in
sopline is going to dig deep into
~,school board's pocket. Diesel
el.used by the nearly 100 school
Sses is costly. -Corbett, however,
e most people responsible for
seculating budgets, said he built an
additional 10 percent in this year's
tansporiation budget.
'lh was the prudent thing to do," he
said. "I think we will be alright with
dur'buses and other vehicles." But
liat has Corbett worried is the
other costs associated with the rise
in fuel costs.


"I only built in a six percent
increase into the electricity," he
said. That won't be enough. Last
month the utility bill at East Gads-
den High School was $28,000 and
school wasn't open. There are 16
other schools in the county and
that's not including the school baord
offices and other spaces they rent.
"Schools used to open to the out-
side. Now the halls must be air con-
ditioned because they are self-con-
tained and that's to keep dut intrud-
ers and people who shouldn't be on
campus," he said. Money paid ,out
for those bills are not recouped from
the state. Corbett said when chil-
dren do not attend school, they are
not counted and the state does not
pay. "They simply withhold the
money," he said. The cost then must
be absorbed by the school district.
The City of Qunicy is holding its
breath, too. Last year the city paid
$1.44 per gallon for regular fuel and
$1.47 for diesel. In June, before the
big price jump, the cost was $2.04
per gallon for diesel and $1.93 for
regular fuel. "We're keeping an eye
on the situation. Our largest users
are public safety and utilities," said


Ann Sherman.
"We'll try to save where we can
and we'll keep an eye on the
prices," said Willie Earl Banks, city
manager.
With nearly 100 vehicles on the
road including marked cars,
unmarked cars, transport vehicles
, and,. support vehicles like pickup
trucks and buses, Major David Gan-
ious said they bur a lot of fuel. "I
think everybody is wondering how
high it's going to go. We're going to
take a pretty good hit, especially
when we have to go out of town to
pick up prisoners," he said.
There could be some good news
on the horizon. Monday, crude oil
prices slid. Oil prices came off last
week's record highs, fallingA-nore
than $1 a barrel by mid-afternoon.
A barrel of light crude settled at
$66.26, down 59 cents on the New
York Stock Exchange.
As gasoline prices hover around
$2.50 'per gallon for regular and
close 'to $2.75 for super, drivers
keep pumping. Gasoline, according
to the Department of Energy, is up
nationwide about 49 cents over this
time last year. Daily demand is up


one percent over last year. People
say they expect the gas prices to
cause them hardships but are will-
ing to try to save elsewhere.
One woman who drives to Talla-
hassee to work everyday said she
tried carpooling but it didn't work
for her. Her answer is to keep week-
end driving to a mimimum.
Still, the high gasoline prices
have not reached the all-time high
record set back in 1980 when gas
lines stretched around comers and
tempers and nerves stretched even
farther. National authorities say that"
while gasoline prices have risen, the
income of Americans has risen even
faster. Plus, the 50 cent per gallon J
increase has come gradually. The
price increase of gasoline amounts
to about $5 for every 10 gallons, the
average weekly per-vehicle con-
sumption in the United States,!
according to John S. Herold, a Nor-
walk Conn-based energy consult-
ant.
But as local agencies grapple
with how to pay for the rising cost
of gasoline and fuel, the tab will
ultimiatc-l land in the laps of the
taxpayers.


Four arrested after trying to flush drugs, scales and straws


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

People who sell drugs ought to
make sure their toilets flush with
force.
..That was the case last week
when members of the Gadsden
Count\ Sheriff's Department
Drug Unit served a search warrant
at the 496 Cypress Circle home of
Shelton Pruitt, 21, in Quincy. As
officers arrived at the trailer they
said occupants inside made a mad
dash to the bathroom.


Citizens alert

Residents are asked t
Count\ Health Department
Administiator; Homer Rice and
Jerry Wynn announced that
,Florida- Departmem of Health-
I DOH I Secretary John O.
iAgwunobi, I.D MN.B.A. NI P.H.,
1has issued a medical'alert for Leon
and Gadsden Counties after a
!human case of Eastern Equine
)Encephalitis (EEE) in each county
was confirmed.
It takes from 4-10 days after the
'bite of an infected mosquito for an
individual to develop symptoms of
EEE. Symptoms begin with a sud-
den onset of fever, general muscle
pains, and a headache of increas-
ing severity.
Physicians should contact their
county health department if they
;suspect an individual may meet
have a contracted a mosquito-
borne illness; DOH laboratories
,provide testing services for physi-
cians treating patients with clinical
signs of mosquito-borne disease.
DOH continues to advise the
:public to remain diligent in their
;personal mosquito protection
efforts. These should include the
"5 D's" for prevention:
Dusk and dawn, avoid being
,outdoors when mosquitoes are
seeking blood. For many species,
,this is during the dusk and dawn
hours.
Wear clothing that covers most
,of your skin.
SUse DEET when the potential
:exists for exposure to mosquitoes,
,repellents containing DEET (N,N-
diethyl-meta-toluamide, or N,N-
diethyl-3-methylbenzamide) are
'recommended. Picaridin and oil
!of lemon eucalyptus are other
repellent options.
Look for drainage problems.
Check around your home to rid the
!area of standing water, which is
where mosquitoes can lay their
,eggs.
Tips on Repellent Use: Always
read label directions carefully fOr
the approved usage before you
apply a repellent. Some repel-
lants are not suitable for children.
Products with concentrations of
;up to 30 percent DEET are gener-
ally recommended. Other effective
mosquito repellents, as reported by
the CDC in April 2005, contain
iPicaridin or oil of lemon eucalyp-
tus. These products are generally
available at local pharmacies.
:Look for active ingredients to be
listed on the product label.
S Apply insect repellent to
exposed skin, or onto clothing, but


"When,-the deputies entered the
trailer, several individuals ran to
the bathroom and were attempting
to flush drugs and drug parapher-
nalij do" n the toilet before beinc
taken into custody," said In\ Jim
Corder of the GCSO Drug Unit.
"We feel they were able to flush
some of the cocaine down the toi-
let, but the straws and scales did-
n't go down," he said.
'In addition to Pruit, arrested at
the scene and charged with drug
violations were: Terry Willliams,


32; Zanntayfay Bennett. 22:
Charleston Yon, 40: and Don
Cobbs, 29. One juvenile \\ as al.so
arrested and charged \ith a diru
violation. During a se.uich of the
tiailei, deputies found 3I0 granm>
of marijuana, crack :cocine, and
drug paraphernalia that consisted
of scales and assorted ba- ie, thati
are consistent with street 1e' el
drug sales. Deputies also found a
9mm semi-automatic handgun
and ammunition.
Corder said all of those


arrested were well know to law
enforcement as individuals
involved in criminal drug activity.
Pruitt was currently on felony
probation. Authorities were given
information that he was in posses-
sion of stolen firearms. Bennett
and Cobbs both had outstanding
arrest warrants for violation !of
probation.
Anyone with information regard-:
ing suspicious or drug activity is
asked to call Inv. Corder at 875-
8847 or 395-4138.

Banks: Quincy's budget will be balanced


by BYRON SPIRES
Times Staff Writer

Quincy city commissioners are now in the
process of reviewing this year's proposed
budget.
"We are providing you a balanced budget
at the 2.75 millage rate," Banks said at the
outset of the budget workshop Monday
afternoon.
The 2.75 millage rate is the same rate the
city used for last year's budget. The com-
missioners had voted tentatively to raise the
rate to 4.0 mils, but Banks' proposed budget
will leave the millage rate the same
This year's proposed budget, he said, was
$615,626 less that last year's budget, with a
total price tag of $36,839,552.
The budget workshops are the commis-
sioners' opportunity to fine tune this year's
budget.
Over a five night workshop agenda they
will be looking at each department in the
city and its request for budgeted items.
Two nights of the workshop are com-
pleted.
The remaining workshops are planned for
Wednesday, August 17, at 6 p.m. ( after the
paper deadline), Monday August 22, at 6


p.m. and Wednesday August 24, at 6 p.m.,
all in the commission chambers. The com-
missioners are scheduled to vote on the final
budget at their September 13 meeting.
Listed below are some of the highlights
and discussions of this years budget so far:
City manager's department: An increase
of $26,000 to include the hiring of a city
engineer. The city manager's budget rose
from $217,000 to $243,000. The engineer's
salary would be set at $60,000. To offset the
engineer's salary Banks said he had
trimmed an additional $34,000 from his
budget. Commissioner Derrick Elias had
asked that an engineer be considered in this
year's budget. He said the city had out-
sourced much of its engineering needs and
he felt that the city could save money by hir-
ing its own engineer. Concerns from several
commissioners as to the cost versus the
results of hiring a full time engineer sent the
measure back to city staff for further study.
The issue will come up again in the work-
shop.

The fate of QuincyFest and Quincy's
Main Street program: The proposed budget
requested $30,000 for Quincyfest and
$20,000 for Main Street. Concerning Quin-


cyfest, Elias was the first to ask questions.
"Are we going to have QuincyFest," Elias
asked the commission.
Elias said that the city had given $10,000
to QuincyFest and were then excluded from
having input into how the festival would
come about.
He said his vision of QuincyFest was to
bring the community together. Elias said he
wanted the festival to include all of the citi-
zens and that it not be limited to just one
venue.
Quincyfest, after a ten year hiatus, was
reborn earlier this year with QuincyFest
presents Blues and Barbecue. The event was
held on the Gadsden County Courthouse,
lawn, and presented several local blues
artists and held a barbecue cook-off compe-
tition.
It was decided by the QuincyFest commit-
tee that no other vendors would be allowed
except those selling barbecue. Elias had
been an opponent of not opening the vend-
ing to the public.
Commissioner Andy Gay told the com-
mission that he was in favor of the project
and wanted to see it funded. He said that the
money would be used by the.committee to
broaden the events' competition and allow


them the opportunity to attract more ven-
dors.
The commissioners each stated what they
felt QuincyFest should receive. Elias recom-
mended $10,000; Finley Cook, $10,000;
Andy Gay $30,000; Keith Dowdell,
$10,000; and mayor Sherrie Taylor,
$20,000. The commission recommended at
Taylor's request the average of the commis-
sioner's requests, which tallied $16,000.
Main Street, not funded last year, received
a boost from the commissioners. The same
process was used as with QuincyFest with
each commissioner giving a recommenda-
tion. Elias re' ommended $7,500, Cook and
Gay said $20%000, Taylor's recommendation
was $12,000:with Dowdell saying $0. The
average totaled about $11,900.

The finance director's budget: The pro-
posed budget showed a slight rise of $4,772
for that department. After two days of
debate it was decided that the finance direc-
tor's request for an assistant finance director
was not in the best interest of the city. Reed
had asked to combine two positions into the
assistant position and pay that individual
$55,000. The, commissioners instead sug-
gested that Reed continue to use D and M


Consulting instead of the added position.
Commissioner Cook asked that the city
manager and his staff look at ways to cut
this year's budget by at least $1 million dol-
lars. Cook said that he did not see in this
year's budget where the city intended to put
back the $700,000 taken from the reserves
earlier in the year that was used to catch up
the city's Progress Energy electric bill.
Commissioner Elias agreed with Cook and
said he wanted to see the budget trimmed
back as well.
Reed, who has said several times that the
city's expenditures were exceeding the
city's revenues, agreed with both Cook and
Elias. One way she said the city could cut
back was in the jobs currently open with the
city.
She said it was worth at least a try in order
to bring expenses in line with revenue. No
mention was made as to the exact jobs or
money involved if they were not filled.
"We've got to stop talking about cutting
expenses and cut expenses," Elias said.
Upcoming in the workshops will be com-
missioners' salaries, the police department
and plans for the new QPD building, the fire
department, utility and public works depart-
ments.


County's proposed budget reflects 5%hike


by ALICE DU PONT

The Board of County Com-
missioners met three days last week
to work out a 2005-2006 budget.
Staff presented the BCC with a bal-
anced proposed tentative budget of
$29,371,428. This represents .an


increase of 5.12 percent over last
year's budget.
"The proposed Fiscal Year
2006 tentative budget provides
funding to maintain current levels of
services to the citizens of Gadsden.
Staff is recommending that the cur-

County okays power


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

Talquin Electric asked for and got
the approval of the Board of County
Commissioners for an ordinance to
cover facilities that may be con-
structed in the county that are not
covered by existing state or federal
regulation in order to protect prop-
erty values, public health and aes-
thetics.
The ordinance, which passed on
first reading, applies to transmission
lines that have 70 kilovolts or
above. Currently all of Talquin's
lines carry 69 kilovolts.
The ordinance will establish appli-
cation, design and review proce-
dures for the county and developers
to follow when locating and con-
structing power lines that are not
subject to other regulations.
"I feel there are enough regula-
tions already," said Bobby Kimbro,
representing Talquin Electric. He
said the company already has to
answer to a laundry list of agencies
from the environmental watch
groups to the Florida Department of
Transportation.
"Talquin is opposed to this and we
ask that you not adopt the ordinance
that will be detrimental to our cus-
tomers in Gadsden County," Kim-
bro said. He said that if the county is
allowed to set the route for power
lines, it could lead to a problem.
Growth management director
William McCord said the new ordi-
nance will provide for certain types
of power lines where there are gaps
for those under 69 kilovolts.
In other matters, commissioners


voted to allow Spanish Moss Philan-
thropies permission for a three-day
outdoor festival in November.
Margie Sims, who lives near the
property off State Road 12 on the
Ball Farm Road, said she was sur-
prised that no one in the area had
been notified of the upcoming festi-
val. She said the music goes on late
into the night and she can hear it
from where she lives. "If you could
have a cut-off time maybe 11 or 12
at night," Sims said.
Paul Levine, one of the promoters,
said because of the nature of the fes-
tival, the music will go on until 2
a.m. He added that the stage is
pointed away from homes and
toward the woods and Sims is prob-


remain in effect, because the funds in the budget for non-profit organi-
generated by the tax increase (result- zations. The BCC will now have to

lin e ru losing the budget seemed to please all
of the commissioners. "This is the

source. "I will be glad to come and stand and straight forward," Chair-

Energy, and by Planning and Zoning
with developers. "There are a lot of
contracts out there. We will be fis-
cally conservative and not spend any
money unless we are approved," he
said.
Commissioners, must now
figure out how to fund some of the
non-profit organizations that have
all together requested a little more
than $175,000. Brown suggested
that in the future commissioners
allow the United Way to determine
the recipients since they already
have a mechanism in place and have
a panel of people who will judge
each request based on a predeter-
mined formula..
Other constitutional offices
will, for the most part, get what the
state has determined their budgets to
be. This especially applies to the Tax


Collector and Property Appraiser.
However, Shirley Knight, Supervi-
sor of. Elections, will see a huge
increase in her budget from
$318,545 to $566,454. Commission
Chairman Ed Dixon said the office
needs the funds to meet new federal
and state guideline requirements.
This expense, will not be recurring.
Brown suggested
that commissioners cut out the
Commodity Food Program. "It is
costing us to be the middle man. We
can still provide the services through
the other agencies," he said.
Commissioners will hold
one more budget workshop on
August 30th at 5 p.m. in the county
commission meeting room, 9 East
Jefferson Street in Quincy.

It's Time for a Change
It's time to put our trust in the Lord: Psalm 56:4 "1 will praise His word."
David said I will put my trust, I will not fear what flesh can do unto me."
These words should be in all of our hearts. We are surrounded by
trouble, sickness, sorrow and stress but God is still in control. Like
Hurricane Dennis so to speak, Satan has done and is doing a lot of
dama e to the faith of and to the family of God. Jude 1:3, "We need to
honestly contend for the faith that was once delivered to the saints."
Daniel :8 KJV, "Now when Daniel knew the writing was signed he went into his house.
Windows being open in his chambers toward Jerusalem hekneeled upon his knees and
prayed three times a day." How many times a day or night do we take the time out to
pra for our sick world? Lives being taken, destroyed needlessly it's time for a change.
f God closed the mouths of hungry lions he can stop some of these violence today.
Let's pray and expect a difference this school year (accidents, etc.) First we must seek
to be committed to the service and works of te Lord. Daniel 3:12, 'There are three
certain Jews in plain words you have promoted and set over the providence." Ain't that
just like our time? Satan has so much to offer today until it seems like the people of God
are falling down and worshipping, that seem like our prayers are being hindered. Let us
take our stand with the Hebrew boys, tell Satan 'we aren't going to bow and we aren't
oing to burn. We are seeking how to trust God in any situation. Acts 9:6 KJV, "When
Sau realized the power of God, he said; Lord, what will thou have me do?" Can we
consider and say likewise? Jesus is saying to us today Arise, and go into the hedges
and byways seeking the lost, and bring them to Jesus. But we must first fiind and geton
the straight street. Saul was changed and ready to serve when he obeyed. So we must
get on the straight street which is obedience to God's Word. It's time for a change.
Humbly submitted,
Evangelist Florence M. Bradwell

.,

Do not stand by my grave and weep; I am not there I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow; I am a diamond glint on snow.
I am the sunlight on a ripened grain; I am gentle autumn rain.
When you awake in the morning hush; I am the swift uplifting rush.
Of quiet birds circling in flight; I'am the soft star that shines at night.
Do not stand by my grave and cry; I am not there, I did not die.
****
We think of you with each sunrise and sunset. We are truly thankful for
the beautiful Christian life that you exemplified here on earth. Your
memory will live forever in our hearts, and we know that you are smiling
with the angels.

PINIONS


[ ontemplations


By: 4lice DuPont


Having your home burglar-
ized is an awful thing. I could
empathize with the woman
whose home was.burglarized
Monday.
It has happened to me and I
don't wish that on anyone.
You're angry, you're upset, but
most of all you feel violated.
Someone has intruded into
your private space and has
helped themselves to every-
thing your own. They have
gone through all of your things
to decide what they want. In
the meantime, they scatter
everything they don't consider
worth having across the floor,
pull things off shelves, knock
items-to the floor and generally
show a.disregard for you and
what you've worked to attain.
People ought not to have to
worry about their belongings
while they are at work. It
seems not that long ago when
you could walk out, go to work
or visit a neighbor and leave'
the door unlocked. Leaving
doors open are a thing of the


past. Now, even alarms and
dogs seem not to be enough
deterent to keep burglars out.
They have make a choice to
make a living by taking from
others.
Recently, one young man
who was caught for one bur-
glary and admitted to another,
was asked why he chose to
commit burglaries. He said he
did it because "no one cared
about him." It seems to me that
one sure way thtoe keep any-
one from caring about you is to
rob them.
What mikes' it oay to take
from another person? I have
heard all of the reasons that
psychologist and other people
give when trying to justify why
certain people steal and others
do not. 'Here are a few reasons
that come to mind: it's the cir-
cumstances of birth, it's the
company they keep, it's not
getting enough love from par-
ents, it's getting too much love
from parents, and on and on
and on. I suppose if you want


-Much ne\' s is focused on elders
who suffer from diseases such as
Alzheimer's. dementia or stroke,
but little attention is paid to the
caregi\ers for these loved ones.
Caregivers area a er, special breed
of people and they need their ow\n
form of nurturing.
SFor this reason, caregivers in the
Big Bend area need to mark their
calendars for Thursday, Sept. 15,
when the Area Agency, on Aging for
North Florida is sponsoring the 7th


annual Big Bend Caregivers
Retreat at the Ramada Inn Confer-
'ence Center on North Monroe St. in
Tallahassee. Cargivers in Gadsden,
Leon, Liberty, Wakulla, Franklin,
Taylor, Madison and iJffecspn,
counties are irged to sign up for
this retreat.
Anyone who is caring for an eld-
erly loved one could use a day for
him/herself. Use this opportunity to
regroup, refresh and be, pampered.
Learn new coping and communicat-


to justify anything there is
always a way to do it.
In the past few months
throughout Gadsden County,
there have been burglaries all
over the place. The only side
of the county that hasn't been
hit with regularity appears to
be east side. Law enforcement
cannot do it alone.
Sheriff Morris Young and other
law enforcement officials
nationwide have said that the
community has to be the eyes
and ears of law enforcement if
unlawful activity is to be mini-
mized. No one expects you to
become the police, but you
know when something isn't
quite right in the neighbor-
hood. You know when some-
one looks and acts suspicious.
Call law enforcement, you
don't even have to give your
name.
My hat goes off to the per-
son who called deputies a few
weeks ago and stopped an
armed robbery north of town.
It takes more people like that
person who wasn't willing to
ignore a crime about to be
committed right under his nose.
One thing is for sure, it may
be your neighbor today but it
could be your home the next
time. Then, you will want
someone to come forward.:


ing techniques, find out about new
resources in the community' and'
share the fellowship with others
traveling the same road.
The retreat starts at 8 a.m. and
lasts until 3 p.m. Lunch is included
and respite care is a\ allable. Best of
all, there is no cost to attend. Space
is limited, however, so please call
Lori at 386-2778 for more informa-
tion to register. This day is for you,
Big Bend caregivers please plan to
attend.


Burglaries in Greensboro concern police chief


It all started over a pair
of khaki pants.
The first real disagreement I
had with my dad..
Looking back, it was pretty
silly to rebel against my father
over a pair of pants, but at the
time it was an issue that I
thought would determine my
entire future.
You know every generation
thinks they are the first to rebel
against authority. Of course at
thirteen I thought I was grown
and could make decisions with-
out any interference from my
parents.
To understand this a little bet-
ter, .let me tell you a little bit
about my dad.
He was a very strict discipli-
narian, to say the least. What he
said is what we did; and up until
that point in my life, I didn't.
ruffle his feathers often. It was a
different time, and as most of us
around my age and older can tell
you, the norm was "spare the
rod anid spoil the child."
I didn't get a lot of spank-
ings from my dad while I was
growing up. The ones I did get
made me realize I didn't need to
wake up the wrath of my dad.
So to instigate an argument
with him at the time would have
been bordering on a near-death
r experience.
But \. hen you are thirleenl
and spreading your wings a little
rebelling seemed, at the time,,
like the thing to do.
Like most of my peers I spent
the summer working to raise
money for school clothes. At the
time I was a bag boy working
on the weekends at Casey's


SIGA.
I cut grass and did other yard'
work as well, and by the end of
the summer I managed to have a
pretty good little nest egg saved
up for school clothes.
Well, I had worked for the
money and thought I should
have some input on how it
Would be spent.
So we went to town one Sat-
urday afternoon just before
school started to get my and
Eddie's school clothes.
At thirteen, you.kinda shift
from being considered a boy to
occasionally hearing young man
attached to your name.
I was at that stage and felt I
had a certain taste in clothes that
needed to be addressed. In other
words, I thought I had grown
beyond blue jeans and flannel
,shirts as'school clothes.
'Usually a trip to buy clothes
meant you followed .your par-
ents around the store. They
would hold clothes up next to
you for comparison and say
things to the clerk like, "he's
wearing a husky 14 now, do you.
have a 16? I 'd like it a little
loose so he can grow into it."
In addition to being strict, my
dad was frugal with money.
Even if it was "my" money he
was .roin to cet the most use
for the buck.
This trip started out like all
the others, with one exception. I
was determined not to start
school in baggy pants and a
shirt two sizes to big.
While my parents were fitting
Eddie I did some shopping on
my own and found a pair of
khaki pants that I liked and cou-

Dear Editor,

Hey, remember the story about
Jesse James and what the railroad
company did to the James family?
Stealing land for pennies to build
the railroad thru "unconquered
land"...did the trouble really hap-
pen or is that just part of the show?
The railroad men going from farm
to farm telling'the. farm families
what was going to be built smack
dab thru their land. Take a dollar
per acre and to be grateful or else!
This thought came to mind after
hearing Mr. Spires comments this
morning on WCTV about the
beginning of school with students
wearing uniforms...then he com-
mented about the County Commis-
sioners meeting concerning the
power company. Seems to me the
stories are similar. Peaceful, hon-
est folks in our county are facing a
big power company and might be


We have had so many hurricane
disasters here all along
Florida...what a stupid idea to put
up a long stream of "BIG POWER
POLES". They call themselves
.progress energy or something like
that...ha! The money it costs to put
gas in a car now...is that progress,
too? People have got to come
together again. There is possible oil
drilling off of the coast of Florida
being discussed now. Thank God
for Senator Bill Nelson who is
avidly opposing the drilling which
also I might add involves deep
underwater explosives. The argu-
ment for not using our land is first
of all...the pond. Next was instabil-
ity of swampy land down the road.
Hard rains can readjust land
quickly.
/ Anyway, my husband talked with
/o'meone in that power, line group
when the talk Was to come thru
/Hardaway....yeah, right! What we


facing their big power company's went thru to get a pond permit with.
Iegal staff. Water Management solved our
*I *


problem quickly. We had folks up
from Gainesville for support in our
project that said a pond would
enhance the natural environment.
Much more was said between
everyone before our pond was
built. In fact, I was sweeping my
porch when a D.E.R. [now EPA]
agent pulled up with a Game War-
den to arrest us for building an
unpermitted pond! Well, I walked
these two men down to the pond
site 'that had nothing started
yet...and they scratched their heads
and apologized. then left. Who the
hell did they think they were? If it
happened today, I might not have
put my broom down.
Good luck to the good folks of
Gadsden. If this does go to court for
the purpose of fighting a huge, ugly
power line'put thru this area...you
had better consider the best attor-
ney you can find. Good luck!
Holler for the highest dollar and do
not stand down.

ple of spiffy-looking shirts.
By the time they got to me I
was pretty well on my way to
becoming the best dressed kid at
school.
Laying on top of the stack of
clothes I had picked out was that
pair of khaki pants.
When my dad looked at the
pants, he gave me the look that
usually meant I was in a heap of
trouble.
I was determined to take a
stand and was ready to defend
my cache of school clothes lay-
ing on the counter regardless of
the consequences.
Today I would say it was a
battle of wills. At the time
though, I just wanted input into
my clothes buying.
What happened next was a
near miracle.
SAs quickly as he had given
me the look, he seemed to
change.
He picked up the khaki pants
and asked me if they fit. I had to
try them on and they fit fine.
My dad looked through the
remainder of the clothes and had
me try on all of the pants to
make sure they were big
enough.
I still ended up with some
blue jeans and flannel shirts, but
I got to keep most of the clothes
I picked out.
Nothing was said on the way
home about me picking out
some of my new clothes.
That would be the last time
my dad would interfere with my
clothes buying.., .. ,
I guess it \was our little rite-
of-passage and his \way of let-
ting me have a little responsibil-
ity for my own destiny.
Just as a footnote, I wasn't
the best dressed kid in school. It
seems there were a lot of other
kids making the same transition
to teenager.
Well, you can't win them all.,

Court upholds
Covenant Hospice
Certificate of need
Covenant Hospice is pleased to
announce that the District Court of
Appeals (DCA) has upheld the
Florida's Agency for Healthcare
Administration (AHCA) award of
the Certificate of Need to Covenant
Hospice.
Covenant Hospice serves over
950 patients per day in the Big Bend
area. Florida's Agency for Health-
care Administration (AHCA) identi-
fied a need for an additional hospice
in the eight-county Big Bend area
surrounding Tallahassee. Because
Covenant has been providing-end-
of-life care to patients in the neigh-
boring areas to the west of Tallahas-
see for 21 years, we recognized the
need and responded.
. Covenant Hospice was awarded a
Certificate of Need to provide hos-
pice services. In addition to a need
for more services for dying resi-
dents, there were specific shortfalls
in rural areas, minority populations,
and caring for dying patients with
non-cancer disease. Covenant
made a commitment to meet those
needs and established an office in
Tallahassee.
Although the AHCA decision was
challenged, Covenant successfully
challenged the decision.

Everyone is cordially invited to
attend.

Dual Day program at 11 a.m. Sun-

Megan placed fourth and was
awarded a certificate and a check

Megan's speech, entitled "Cele-
brating Florida Conservation,"
focused on water quality and the
pollution problem tlin bfidiAns
face. He-r closing rer&m'fdd hlin-
eis that, "'Without all this \ after. can
you imagine what it would be like
to live here? As a Floridian, your
whole life would change. There
n\ould be no white, sandy beaches
to visit and enjoy in the hot summer
months. There would be no fishing
on the weekends. There would be
no water sports or other activities
that we enjoy in this state. We cel-
ebrate water conservation because
we enjoy every aspect of living
here, surrounded by water." Megan
is a senior this year and the daugh-
ter of Tim and Karen Rowan of

3 sisters share goal of graduation!


Over the course of four months,
this family has celebrated three
graduation ceremonies, for three sis-
ters, at three different places of
higher learning.
Lacarra Dilworth was among the
13 graduates of Corrections Basic
Recruit Class 286 who graduated
from Pat Thomas Law Enforcement
Academy on April 27.
; The graduation ceremony was
held at Tallahassee Community Col-
lege's Turner Auditorium. Lacarra
held the position of class secretary.
She is currently employed as a Cor-
rectional Officer at a private correc-
tional institute. She is the daughter
of Jackie and Liza Dilworth.
LaTasha Dilworth-Porter gradu-
ated Summa Cum Laude (4.0 GPA)
from Flagler College at TCC on
May 2. The graduation ceremony
was held at Ruby Diamond Audito-
rium on Florida State University's
campus.
SLaTasha received a B.A. degree in
Elementary Education with ESOL
endorsement. She has accepted a
position with the Gadsden County
School Board as a kindergarten
teacher for George W. Munroe Ele-
mentary School.

Capital City Bank Group, Inc. has
been named to the elite list of Divi-
dend Achievers for 2005 by Mer-
gent, Inc.
Mergent develops and maintains
the Dividend Achievers Indexes, a
unique class of companies that has
historically outperformed the over-
all market;and helped to boost port-
folio returns over the long term. The'
annual list of Dividend Achievers,
compiled by Mergent, is made up of
companies that have increased their
regular annual dividends every year
for the past 10 years or longer and
have met certain additional financial
criteria. :'-
SSuch companies tend to have
strong cash flows, solid balance
sheets-and the potential for long-
term out performance. Among the
U.S. equity markets NYSE, NAS-
DAQ and AMEX there are only
314 publicly listed companies that
meet these stringent requirements,
qualifying them as Dividend
Achievers for 2005. This represents
less than 3 percent of the approxi-
mately 15,000 stocks listed on these
markets and monitored by Mergent.

Investors tend to see dividends as an
important component of a stock's
total return, providing a steady
stream of income, in addition to
price appreciation..
.In an up-and-down market,
investors are continuously searching
for highly disciplined companies
that pay dividends. Even better are
companies with the discipline and
earnings growth to pay dividends
over a prolonged time period -
through challenging economic and
political climates.

NEW COACHES. FOR A NEW SEASON
There's little doubt that a college head foot-
ball coach in the state of Florida lives under a
looking glass.
Urban Meyer at Florida. and Rubin Carter
at FAMU. have no doubt. found that out before
their respective teams even hit the practice
field. Fellows, you ain't seem nothing yet! In
this wild and whacky state, football is king.
second guessing is queen, and media of all
types sit on the thrones.
Oh. you'll get a little bit of a honeymoon.
not much of one. if you don't produce. Ask
Ron Zook.
And that's what this column is about this
week. I'll predict who I think will produce this
football season in the college game. A fair


warning. what I usually predict, doesn't hap-
pen.

LAST YEAR
I said the FSU-liami \\ inner in their Labor
Da.y week-end game \would go on to play for
the national championship. That of course
didn't happen. I did say their opponent would
be USC or Oklahoma both which made the
championship game. I bet Oklahoma \ ishes it
would hlve been Miami or FSU instead of
them in it. What a shipping g the Trojans put on
the Sooners!

THE ACC
Again FSU and Miinu are set for a Labor
Da\ opener. I don't think the winner or loser
of this one \\ill make it to the national title
game. In fact the \winner or loser may not e\ en
make it to the first ACC title came set for
December 3 in Jacksonville.
The teams are in different divisions in the
league, as the ACC didn't want either of their
top TV teams put behind the eight ball after the
first game.
\liami should be favored in the opener, but.
either a \win or a loss their key game \will still
be at Vireinma Tech on November 5. The w in-
ner of that one \\.ill be in the ACC title game.
FSU on the other hand has totgh conference


road game, at Clemson. Boston College and
Virginia. A w in against Miami is almost vital
if they want to be in the first ACC title game.
It won't happen. I think Virginia Tech and
a surprising Clemson team will play in the title
game mainly because the Tigers have their
toughest ACC games at home and they ha\e
47 lettermen returning.
Back to FSU. I feel the Tribe will struggle
until they settle in at quarterback, and I look
for an 8-3 season. Mianmi will finish the regu-
lar season at 9-2.

THE SEC
Me\er and his Gators xon't be in the SEC
title game either. I think they will start strong
and \\ill even defeat Tennessee in their first
real test on September 17. But games at
Alabama, LSU. and South Carolina along with
the annual bash against Georgia in Jack-
sonville loom. Like FSU. an 8-3 mark is the
best I expect.
Who \\ill be in the SEC title game? Look for
Auburn to make it back. The Tigers lost a lot
last yeai but return 52 lettermen and their first
5 games are at home. They don't t go unde-
feated again but theN'll win the SEC again
defeating Georgia in Atlanta on December 3.


I liked Bill\ Joe. But, that's history at
FAMU and the Rattlers were darn lucky to
replace him with a man like Carter.
Look for Carter to have his ups and downs
this year. I see FAMU struggling to a 5-6 mark
or 6-5 at best. Again. Rattler fans will Live him
some time, but they're looking for someone to
return them to those glory days, and they'll be
looking for progress as early as next year.

NATIONALLY
Iovwa will win the Big Ten. and Louisville
will be at the top of the class in their first year
in the Big East. Neither of those conferences
will be represented in the Championship game
on January 4.
The Pac Ten and the Big 12 will be repre-
sented. Texas, and elusive quarterback Vince.
Young, will get the Oklahama bug-a-boo off
their back. and capture their conference cro\ n.
The Horns will play USC for it all in the
Rose Bowl.
The Trojans are a shoo in. They return 49
lettennen. including quarterback Matt Leinart
and runner Reggie Bush who are both top
Heisman candidates. The Trojans conference
is pretty weak so they'll have little resistance
there. Texas will give them a better game than
Oklahoma did last year...but I'm on the band
w agon...it's USC again.

Column brings back memories of '48


by Joe Ferolito
Last week in my weekly sports column, I
wrote an article about Bruce Wimberly's induc-
tion into the Georgia Football Hall of Fame.
A team picture of the 1947 Gadsden County
High School football team accompanied the col-
umn.
Wimberly was a member of that team. He was
also a member of the 1948 team that went unde-
feated. This week, thanks to Jimmy Auman,
we're going to run a picture of the 48' team along
with names of the undefeated squad.
Walton O. Walker the teams head coach. It was
his first of two years as the Tiger head man.
Offensively, the Tigers averaged close to 40
points a game. But it was defense that was the
teams strength as the Tigers shut out six of their


opponents and allowed only four touchdowns all
year. That defense was under the tutorship of the
late Mr. Guy Race the assistant coach in charge
of defense.
Scores from the 48 season were GHCS.52
Bonifay 6, GCHS 41 Chipley 0, GCHS 20 Cairo
0, GCHS 54 Apalachicola 7; GCHS 46 Perry 6,
GCHS 26 Monticello 0, GCHS 49 Madison 6,
GCHS 20 Bainbridge 0, GCHS 64 Blakely 0, and
GCHS 26 Marianna 0.
The team was rewarded with a trip to the
Orange Bowl for their remarkable year.
Getting back to the 47' team. Members of that
team were Coach ,Hal Crownover
(Deceased),Tom Cumbie, Bruce Wimberly, Billy
Yon Peacock (D), Jack Hatcher (D), Bill Carter,
Randy Green, Julian Harper, Henry Holley,


SJames Johnson, Louis Powell, Lamar Masse:
Jimmy Auman, Wayne Peacock (D), Bubba Dy;

Betts, Bobby Woodward, Charles Hancock, Way

Jack Glisson, Billy Hatcher, Starling Glissol
Wilbur Hawkins (D), Adm. Frank Lines (D
Alton Brady, Ed Cox, Bob Holoman (D), Jo
Wheat (D), Donald Carman, Bill Smith (D
Jimmy McKeown, and Dr. Bobby Taylor.
The 48' team picture has the players named
Many of them were on the 47' team. And many c
them are still in the area having achieved success
in endeavors other than football. Still that 48
team was special, as undefeated teams rarely
come along.

Burglaries

been robbed. Things. were all over
the floor and the bedroom door that
is usually locked was open," said
the homeowner, whom we will not
identify. "I immediately called
911," she said.
Then she grabbed her .357 mag-
num and went outside. She fired
one round in the air and yelled for
the man to stop.
She tried to call 911 again and the
man ran away. This time she fired
five or six more shots in the air and
yelled for him to stop.
"He ran into the woods," she said.
Later Monday morning authorities
located one of the woman's tee
shirts filled with coins, DVDs, a
watch, and keys taken from a neigh-
bor's home.
She knew the burglar because he
was the same man who rang her
door bell Friday afternoon. He left
after hearing someone in the home.
Later Friday afternoon, Inv. Larry
Smith was called to a home around
the corer concerning a burglary.
The burglar had taken guns and
electronic games from that home.
Smith said after Curry was cor-
nered by a K-9 officer between
Gene Williams Road and Spooner
Road he came out of the woods say-
ing he wanted to talk to officers.
"He gave detailed information as
to how he committed the burgla-
ries," Smith wrote in an official
report.
Curry took deputies to the location
where they could recover stolen
property. He took them to a resi-
dence he shares with his sister at
212 Julio Road in Greensboro.
He led Investigators Smith and
Ulysess Jenkins to a pile of firearms
wrapped in a blanket in the back-
yard. Inside the blanket they found
five long shotguns and rifles, and a
pistol. The pistol, they say, had been
used in at least three burglaries.
Curry is also charged with an
armed robbery on Tolar Road in
Greensboro.
The victim, Salvador Alverez, said
he was riding his bicylcle on.Tolar
Road. when a small car with four
black men drove up and stopped.
Witnesses said Curry took a hand-
gun from a backpack he had, got out
of the car, and robbed Alverez of a
necklace at gunpoint. Curry pulled
the necklace from around the man's
neck, they said.
Once Curry was arrested and his
identity known, the woman said she
knew Curry.


Finances


Continued from Page 1

for the city.
In the workshop she said she
needed $500,000 as a float to assure
'that the city paid its bills on time;
When asked what had caused the
problem, Reed said there were, two
reasons for the dilemma.
The first concerned the Progress
Energy rebate check. The money,
she said, had been used as unbud-
,geted funds in the city's coffers, and
-had been used to offset slow utility
:payments from the city's customers.
SThe City of Quincy buys its elec-
.tricity from Progress Energy and
:resells it to city customers at a
profit. That profit along with state
-revenue monies, property taxes, and'
other revenue is used to fund the
city's operations.
Reed said that much of the city's
:funds are generated from the city's
:enterprises such as electricity, water,
-sewage and gas. When the payments
:from those enterprises are not forth-
coming it slows down the city's cash
:flow.
SThe rebate money in the past was
.enough to keep the money flowing
'from the city even though the cus-
-tomers were slow in paying she
-said. The problem was that the last
,two of those checks were spoken for
;and not used as a float for the check-
ing account.
One was used for new utility
trucks and the most recent was used
-to help pay a delinquent Progress
,Energy electric bill.
The city's billing system, Reed
said, also had an effect on the
.money shortfall.
According to Reed the city sends
out two sets of bills. Some cus-
-tomers are billed early in the month
:with the bulk of the city's customers
;sent bills on the 10th or 11th of the
,month, and the bills are due on the

Any outstanding indebtedness to
state or federal agencies will be
taken out of the settlement before
the funds are released to individu-
als, Ford speculated.
According to the terms of the
agreement, over $13 million will be
paid into a trust account established
on behalf of the individuals who
participated in the class action suit
against Robert McQueen, Milton
Thomas and others under Employee
Retirement Income Security Act
(ERISA) and the Kentucky law. The
settlement was approved on August
11 of this year.and a trustee has
been named. Those who are entitled

20th.
She said that cut-off is the 26th,
and that most of the money is
received on the 23rd and 24th of the
month.
As an example she said this
month's billing is about $1.3 mil-
lion. So far this cycle (as of the
16th) the city has received about
$400,000.
In addition, the city is facing a
large Progress Energy bill this
month. Reed said that bill for
$843,000 is due by August 29.
Reed said that a note on the bill
said.that the city had been under-
billed in July by $143,000.
No explanation was given con-
cerning the underbilling.
Commissioner Derick Elias' asked
Reed if she could get by with
$250,000 instead of the requested
$500,000.
Reed responded that she could.
Commissioner Finley Cook had
concerns about the need to dip into
the reserve again.
He said that he did not feel that it
was the collections, but the expendi-
tures of the city that were creating
the need to revisit the shortfall again
this year.
The commissioners faced a similar
dilemma earlier this year :when
Progress Energy's bill became
delinquent. In order to pay the bill
the commissioners allowed Reed to
access $700,000'of reserve money
that had been previously approved,
but not used, to pay the bill.
Reed explained that the city's gen-
eral fund only generated $3.5 mil-
lion (through such avenues as taxes
and state revenue sharing), but the
city's expenditures in the general
fund were at $10 million. The
money to operate the city about
$6.5 million had to come from
somewhere, and that was from the
enterprises (utilities) of the city.
She said that the city needs to
lower the general fund expenditures.
Cook agreed and said that the
city's staff needs to go through the


The matter was brought up Tues-
day night near the end of the regular
board meeting by the county's attor-
ney Thornton Williams. He said the
clerk's attorney, Scott A. Snavely,


expenditures and cut them.
Because it was a workshop the
commissioners made no decision
concerning Reed's request for the
additional money from the city's
reserves.
In other business mayor Sherrie
Taylor asked city manager Willie
Earl Banks about a consultant the
city was using.
Banks had presented the commis-
sioners with a list of consultants at
'the last regular meeting, and B and
M Consultants had been on the list,
having received $18,000 from the
city.
Taylor wanted to know who the
consultant was and in what capacity.
he helped the city.
Banks said that B and M Consul-
tants was owned by Bill Bogan..
Bogan is currently a financial con-
sultant for the City of Gretna as
well. According to Banks he is also
an employee of Leon County.
Taylor had concerns about when
and why the city hired Bogan.
Reed said that Banks had told the
commissioners about hiring Bogan
at the June 14 meeting. She said he
had been hired to help the city com-
plete its delinquent 03-04.audits and
was also involved with preparing
the current 04-05 audits for the city.
Reed said that Bogan had been hired
in November to help with the audits.
Taylor said that Reed did not men-
tion the consultant when the com-
mission was looking into hiring a
consultant several months ago. She
wondered why Reed did not men-
tion she already had a consultant on
board at the time.
Reed replied she did not at the
time understand that Bogan was
what the commission was looking
for. She said she thought they
wanted a full time consultant.
Cook, who had requested the con-
sultant at the time, responded and
said that he remembered saying at
the time that he did not care if the
person worked for three months or
six, only that he brought the city

manager and the county attorney to
see if something can be worked out.
County Manager, Marlon Brown
Said he feels it is unfortunate that

into compliance.
Cook's request'for the consultant
was turned down by the commis-
sion.
Commissioner Andy Gay asked
Reed if there had been a contract
with B and M Consultants.
Reed responded that there had
been no contract.
Elias asked Banks why he had not
mentioned B and M Consultants
sooner.
Banks said he had no reason for
not mentioning B and M Consul-
tants.
When asked if he thought B and M
Consultants could have filled the
consultant position' that had been
requested by Cook, Banks said that
in hindsight he thought he could
have.
Elias asked Banks why he had
waited to mention B and M Consul-
tants until June of this year after
bringing him on board in November
of 2004.
Banks said that Bogan had been
able to help with the 03-04 audit and
that he did not feel it was something
he was trying to hide. When asked if
Bogan was still helping with the
audit, Reed said that he was.
Reed said that Bogan had been
paid eight times since starting in
November, the last payment being
in July for $1,000.
When asked if there were any out-
standing invoices from B and M
Consultants Reed said that there was
one for $2,000.
Commissioner Keith Dowdell
asked Reed how D and M had been
chosen, and she answered that she
did not know, that the city manager
had brought him on board.
No decision concerning the con-
sultant was made at the workshop.


Thomas had chosen to communicate
through a lawyer rather than sitting
down face to face with him. Monday
night, Brown said he has tried every
way to talk with Thomas but has
been unsuccessful. Brown said the
cuts that he proposed to the clerk's
budget were his idea because know-
ing where the funds are will "help
the board get a better feel for where
they are and where they need to go."
As it stands, Brown said, the board
has no idea where the money is or
how much unless the clerk .ils
them.
The clerk, however, points his fin-
ger at the commissioners that
he won't name. He said he didn't
want to get into a (confrontational)
contest with commissioners because
"some of them are very good at it.'
Thomas said he feels that while the
budget has not yet been approved
the decision has been made to cut
his budget.
"All of the other constitutional
officers came to meet with the
board. The sheriff said he didn't
have enough but said he would work
with us. The supervisor of elections
said she needed 62 per cent more
and showed us what she had to do.
The property appraiser and the tax
collector all came. Where was the
clerk?" asked Chairman Dixon.
He said he would have welcomed
Thomas' explanation as to why he
should maintain the same finances
even if some of the work has been
shifted.
Thomas said he didn't attend the
budget workshop because he's not
interested -in getting 'into a public
fight.
In fact, he recently stopped attend-
ing meetings of the board of county
commission altogether, a practice he
has had since he was elected to
office. The board, he wrote in a
memo, has become so sophisticated
he wasn't needed at the meetings.
Brown recommended that the
commission create an office of man-
agement and budget in the new


budget. "The fact that you now have
an OMB department does not
change any of the duties of the clerk
as chief fiscal officer, auditor,
accountant and .treasurer. The clerk
is still responsible for all of the day-
to-day operations. We no longer
amend your budget but that takes
less than 1% of the. department's
time," Thomas wrote in a July 22,
2005 memo to the board, stating that
the cuts were unacceptable.
The money from his office, he
said, would fund the OMB office
and a public relations person. "I
don't care who they hire it's their
right. I just don't want them to cut
my budget to fund it," Thomas said.
He added that he could keep all of
his employees if the county cuts
'amounted to 16 percent, instead of
the 38 percent.
Brown said he has tried to com-
municate directly with Thomas but
to no avail.
"I have called him four times and
asked him to just walk across the
street to talk about this, but he
refuses. These cuts are from Marlon
SBrown to the commission and they
have the last word. I'm not doing
anything illegal or unethical,"
Brown said, adding, "I wish Mr.
Thomas would stop thinking that
my decisions are part and parcel of
Ed Dixon, Brenda Holt, and Derrick
Price. It is unfortunate that one
elected official is pointing the finger
at another."
Commissioner Sterling Watson
said he didn't want to cut the clerk's
budget at all and advocated return-
ing all of the money to Thomas'
budget.
"I'm lost. Why can't he just talk to
the manager? Why do we need to
get a letter from a lawyer to say he
needs to meet with the county man-
ager?" Dixon asked. He said he was
perplexed as. to what the clerk
wanted. "I don't know what this is
all about. But whatever it takes, Mr.
Manager, please sit down with him,"
Dixon said.

August 14, 2005
August 7th was the anaversury of'
General George Washintons Order
of the Purple Heart. There has
been approximately 1,535,000
issued and approximately 550,000
of them are still living. It is the
oldest Decoration in the world in
contenous use.
I never new that before, so you se anybody can learn something ever
day, provided he sets, reads and listns.
This past Saterday morning the Flint fork of the Lake was within 5
inches of the flood of '98. Nine gates were open on the dam letting
water down the Appalach. The flo d gauge at Blountstown was 5
inches over flood stage. The new storm coming in from the Southeast
left the Corps with no way but more water downstream fast.
Mr. Johnny Davis and his son, Clay Davis has scored big all week on
Bass. Thursday evening they had'several tournament size fish and 2
gooduns at 5 lbs. each. A few other catches of Bass was reported, most
of the Bass came on Plastic and the Flukes is the best.
I would like to take a small bit of space to remember a fine true south-
ern gentileman from up Atlanta a':'t, Jack E. Patton who invented "Jacks
Juice"? I bought from him in i981 with just a handshake. It's still on
the market and it does work.
Along about Tuesday. last week, the Perch took a liken to our Jigs and
NMinnov. s They started'to bite.and bite like they wuz starving. One
boat hit the dock with 62 Perch. From then on'we have had Perch every
day, some from the Creek and some from the Lower Flint. We then got
work from Al Carter and Co. a local fisherman who had took 50 lbs. of
dressed Catfish and 60 Big Red Breasted Bream. Laterin the week,
'Nick Jeter and buddies took an awesome amount of Bream.
Schooling Bass was caught in the Lake Friday, not bigguns but 2 lbs.,
or so. The fast moving water slows.

Tips to save that

expensive gasoline
Industry analysts'say our record
high gas prices are likely to climb
even higher and everyone is either
driving around in circles to find the
lowest price or just griping about
them. But, according to experts,
extra miles can be squeezed out of
every fill-up if drivers followed a
few simple rules.
"The way to save money is in
every drivers' hands, and sometimes
feet," said Ray Palermo, director of
public relations for national auto
insurer, Response Insurance.
"Everything comes down to two
basic categories of advice,"
explained Palermo, "car care and
driving habits." He offered drivers
a few pieces of advice.
Lighten the car's load. Every 200
pounds of weight reduces gas effi-
ciency by one mile per gallon. If
you have to carry a lot of baggage,
avoid using a roof-top container,
which will increase the air drag. If
you drive a pick-up truck, the open
bed will have the, same impact, so
put a cover on it.
Incorrectly inflated tires decrease
fuel efficiency. Check vehicle and
tire manufacturer for proper infla-
tion.
Don't turn on the air conditioner
as a first response to the heat. Start
your drive off with the windows
open to exhaust the hot air out of the
rear windows and then put on the
A/C if needed. This will also
enable the air conditioning to wdrk
faster and more efficiently when
turned on.
Smooth out your driving style by
avoiding "jack rabbit" starts and
sharp braking. Both expend gas
and can present a hazard for others
on the road.
It's estimated that every mile per
hour driven above 55 MPH costs
1% in fuel economy. So, slowing
down can be both safe and fuel-effi-
cient. Maintaining a constant
speed also maximizes your. car's
performance. If road conditions
permit, use your car's cruise con-
trol.
Traveling at a fast speed in a low
gear wastes gas.
A l-c ijtc c t little :'ou approach

switching gears once on the incline.

Floridians warned of bogus insurance


The Florida Department of Financial Services has
warned that it has received reports of an unlicensed
entity selling bogus homeowners-insurance in Florida.
Global Insurance Group, headquartered in Aventura,
FL., has been aggressively advertising that it offers the
lowest windstorm insurance rates in Florida.
When asked about its licensing status, a company rep-
resentative reported that it sells coverage through a
company named Global Property and Casualty Insur-
arnce. Neither entity is either licensed or authorized to
sell insurance in Florida.,
"Floridians need to be on guard against this kind of
activity," said Florida's Chief Financial Officer Tom

QPD, GCSO party

with kids in

pre-school bash


Photos by Alice DuPont
School Superintendent Reginald James said hello to
students Brandon Clark, right, and Joshua Adams
after their faces vyere painted. DARE Officer Theotis
talked with Sheaundra Hinson. a St. John Elemen-
tary first grader, at the Back-to-School block party.

by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

The gym at Carter-Parramore Academy was packed
last Thursday afternoon with parents and children. Out-
:side, smoke from a large grill permeated the air as ham-
:burgers and hotdogs cooked. It wasn't the school's
usual Open House to welcome parents and students
back for a new year, it was a back-to-school block party
sponsored by the Quincy Police Department and the
Gadsden County Sheriff's Office.
"Before they go back to school we want to educate
them on drugs, crime, and safety," said Chief Gerald
.McSwain. Speaking more to students than to parents,
McSwain told the them that drug dealers, those who
,prey on young girls, and thieves will not be tolerated.
"This city is going to be safe andwe are going to see to
that," he told about 500 people who crammed the gym.
He got thunderous applause when he told parents that
the police department has declared war on drugs.
:"Drugs can destroy an entire community. The dealers
:have tricks. They will give a young person drugs to get
:them hooked. If you or someone you know is experi-
:menting with drugs, stop now," he said. .
He also had harsh words for older students, especially
:males. "If we catch you doing some of these things I
'have talked about, you're going to jail," he said. "Older
:boys and men dating these young girls is a no-no., That
:kind of activity we will not stand for, we're serious,"
:McSwain said.
SFrom crime, the speeches turned to education.
"We have the best students in the state of Florida and
we're going to have our best year ever," said Superin-
tendent of Schools Reginald James. He said the block
-party is proof that the people of Quincy are not all talk,
,and that events such as the one held Thursday prove that
tthe community is reads to turn around.
:About 50 la's enforcement officers and staff were on
hand to help out. Inv. James Dennard of the GCSO and
Lt. James King of QPD handled cooking 500 hot dogs
and hamburgers. King said standing over a hot grill on
a humid Florida night was hard work, but the effort was
Worth it for the kids.


Sheilia Chitty from the GCSO handed a blue ticket to
each child who came through the door. When the draw-
ing was over, 200 school packets containing coloring,
books with crayons (for the smaller ones), notebooks,
paper, rulers, and spiral tablets had been given, away.
NetQuincy gave away about a dozen educational video
games and backpacks filled with school supplies, and
the James A. Shanks High School Class of 1982
donated 100 backpacks.
George Nero, Jr. of Tiger Tales, was a big hit with the
younger crowd as he fashioned all sorts of animals from
balloons.
Armani Smith, 7, was ready to go home after Nero gave,
her pastel colored butterfly wings. The Astoria Park stu-
dent said she already had her school supplies and was
ready to go back to school.
The man of the hour for middle and high school stu-
dents was DJ "'Cadillac Joe" who got the back-to-school
party started as soon as all of the speeches were over.
"This is something positive for these kids. People
always think the worst about music but it's not like
that," he said. As tunes from entertainers such as Lil
Scrappy and Mike Jones blared inside the gym and kids
took to the dance floor, parents and younger children
made their way outside for hot dogs, hamburgers, baked
beans, chips and soft drinks.
"I'm just happy the rains came early and made it good
for the kids," said Quincy Police Officer Tom Murray,
who helped organize the event.

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 your supporting us. Come
by or call.
