by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
SThe emergency room at Gadsden Commu-
nity Hospital (GCH) was set to shut down
Thursday at 7 a.m. Gadsden County Com-
mission chairman Ed Dixon said the com-

temporary plan in place," said Dixon. He
said the board is committed to keeping the

Quincy commissioners got a
pleasant surprise Tuesday night.
David Gardner, executive director
of the Gadsden County Chamber of
Commerce, announced that the City
of Quincy has been named the
"Friendliest Small Town In
Florida."
The distinction comes from
Florida Monthly magazine's
800,000 readers.
Florida Monthly is the Sunshine
State's largest monthly magazine.
Each year the magazine asks its
readership to vote for their favorites
in over 100 categories.
Douglas Cifers, publisher for the
Florida Monthly, said in a press
release, "we are extremely pleased


Preventable deaths skyrocket this year


Sheriff worries
about spike in
homicides, traffic
deaths, suicides

by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
Gadsden County is dying by its own hand
and Sheriff Morris Young says it is partially
his responsibility to do something about it.
Between traffic accidents, homicides and
suicides, the county is approaching 40 deaths
and most could have been prevented. Last
week, the county recorded its 22nd traffic
fatality with the death of Deroderick Green. It
has not been determined what happened in the
early morning hours on a back country road
when he lost his life in a one-car crash. Last
week a 35-year-old woman was killed when
wet road conditions caused the car she was
riding in to cross the'median and hit a van.


Two weeks ago the fifth suicide of the year
was recorded when a young man hanged him-
self in rural Gadsden County.
And two weeks ago, a father killed his son
following an argument at a Chattahoochee
night spot. He has not been charged.
"There has to be a way to educate people.
Somehow we have to let them know that
speed, alcohol, driving too fast for conditions
either together or by themselves can kill. Peo-
ple need to learn how to just cool off for a
minute and think before they grab a gun or
knife, and we have to let troubled people
know that suicide is a permanent solution to a
temporary problem," Young said.
All too often his telephone rings in the mid-
dle of the night and he knows the news is not
good. All too often lately, someone has been
killed, and Young is on the scene and standing
in front of some family member holding hands
and saying that he's sorry for their loss. "It's
frustrating to me because I know that a lot of
this didn't have to happen," he said.
Young wants to hire a professional at the

In 2002, Cifers said that the mag-
azine's readership selected another
Gadsden County community,
Havana, for the same award.
Gardner told the commissioners
that he would like to see the city
take advantage of the distinction.
"I would like to see this announced
on the water tower and city streets,"
Gardner said.

New WGHS


site bought

by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
The School Board during the regular meet-
ing Tuesday night approved the purchase of
72.862 acres of land on which to build the
New West Gadsden High School from Char-
lie Macon.
The price tag was $480,000 bringing the
total of land purchased for the school that is
designed to house 750 students to just over
$800,000.
Land originally purchased for the new
school site had to be abandoned after it was
discovered that part of the property was once
a cemetery. Sammie Lee Hawkins, repre-
senting the NAACP, first brought the prob-
lem to the School Board several months ago
after he said he was ignored. Members of the
site selection committee also told members

&bb]6JReK:

Doing his best to do

is duty to go

and his country.

*Scoutingos biggest event
draws him 6ack to
Virginia Jamboree

by BYRON SPIRES
Times Staff Writer
For Bill Mock, Boy Scouts of America has been a
lifetime of commitment to an organization he believes
molds young people into productive adults.
The Boy Scouts' promise On my honor I will do
my best to do my duty to God and my country and to
obey the Scout law; to help others people at all times;
to keep myself physically strong, mentally awake and
morally straight is more to Mock than just something
that each scout must memorize. It is a way of life.
"Scouting is an organization that teaches values. I
think that is what our young men and women need,"
Mock said.
"They are our future," Mock added
Over the past 41 years Mock has been everything
from a scout himself, a scout master, and has held posi-
tions with the Suwannee River Area Council of The
Boy Scouts of America.
His two sons, Greg and Mike both became Eagle
Scouts, one of Scouting's highest achievements.
This past summer Mock took a few weeks off and
attended his third Boy Scout National Jamboree held in
Fort A P Hill, Virginia.
Mock was was one of 43,000 scouts and volunteers
that camped out at this year's Jamboree.
S"It was an opportunity to renew old friendships and
make new friends," Mock said.
Mock was a sub-camp commissioner at this year's
jamboree. His responsibilities were to be a liaison
lietween the four troops he oversaw and the camp's
main council.
"I worked with four troops from Provo, Utah and
helped them with any special needs, medical or other
problems that came up during the jamboree," Mock
said.
1 Since the event is a camping jamboree the scouts


The next morning they all showed back up and
helped the troops rebuild their campsite. It was that
attitude of pulling together and helping each other,
Mock said, that Boy Scouts is all about.
When Mock wasn't overseeing his troops he spent
time manning a courtesy booth at the jamboree's
exhibit area.
His free time, he said, was spent visiting with old
friends and spending time at the Boy's Action Center,
set up near the center of the camp. This area had
dozens of displays for the scouts to ponder over.
Mock said there were exhibits from NASA, and during
the jamboree astronauts were on hand to talk to the


brought their own tents with the adults housed in Army
tents.
It was setting up one of those Army tents Mock said
that brought about the Jamboree's tragedy.
The national news reported that four scoutmasters
had been killed when their tent poles came in contact
with an electric line.
Mock said that he understood the men had been
asked to help put up a dinning tent when the accident
occurred.
Two men were also hurt in the incident, Mock said.
The scout masters were from Alaska and had come all
the way across the country to participate in this year's
jamboree, Mock added.
Two of the men that died had sons with them at the
jamboree.
"The scouts were taken away from the area and put
up in barracks and the council provided counselors for
the boys," Mock said.
A memorial service was held fqr the four men. Mock
said that the memorial service was a sobering time for
reflection.
"It was always in the back of your mind that these
guys had volunteered their time and money to help
these boys," Mock said.
For Mock those men were doing what nearly 3,000
other volunteers were doing at the jamboree, helping
shape young lives, when tragedy struck them down.
The jamboree went on as planned after the men were
killed, something Mock is sure those scoutmasters
would have liked.
It was that spirit Mock said that dominated this
year's jamboree.
"We had a bad rain storm come through one night
and take out all of the tents of the Montgomery, Alaba-.
ma troop. The whole camp was flattened. Troops from
all over the area came in and took the boys back to
their tents for the remainder of the night," Mock said.

scouts. Boy's Life Magazine had a display as well as
displays of helicopters, scuba diving, an interfaith tent
and BMX Bicycles.
There were wood carvers on hand, and at every Jam-
boree there is a totem pole carved just for that year's
event," Mock said.
This year's Jamboree encompassed a lot of issues,
Mock said, including environmental and many educa-
tional displays. In all, he said, there were about 600
tents set up in the action center.
In addition to the exhibits, Mock said there was a
"High Cope" obstacle course set up for the scouts to

Cox: Quincy needs to prepare for growth


by BYRON SPIRES
Times Staff Writer

Development and and infrastructure were
the topics of discussion at Tuesday night's
Quincy commission workshop.
The workshop stems from the announce-
ment two weeks ago that Great Northern
Assets was planning a 400 acre develop-
ment near Little River on US 90.
It was proposed that the development
would have 300 home sites, 150 -200 apart-
ments or townhouses as well as several hun-
dred thousand square feet of commercial
and office space. .
Quincy utilities director Mo Cox
explained to the commissioners that growth


was coming and that the city needed to start
looking at ways to prepare for it.
Cox said that the city's current sewage
treatment plant was within 300,000 gallons
of being at capacity.
He provided a map that showed some of
the growth areas in the city and the city's
service area.
According to his map there is a potential
for about 1345 new residents and a number
of industrial and commercial businesses.
He estimated that the projected sewer
capacity would be 825,169 gallons or more
than a half million gallons over the city's
current capacity.
One problem Cox said that the city was
facing involved rain water that is now enter-


ing the sewage system. He said that when it
rains water is seeping into the system and
ends up at the waste water plant which in
turn raises the cost of treating the water and
cuts into the plant's capacity capabilities.
Cox said that most of the problems were
in the older sections of the sewer lines.
To begin to fix the infiltration problem he
said would require additional funding and
added employees. Cox said once the project
to stop the infiltration was completed it
would reclaim about 150,000 gallons of
capacity at the plant.
There are several alternatives that the city
could use, Cox said.
One would be enlargement of the current
waste water plant. To raise the capacity


another 500,000 gallons a day would have a
hefty price tag of several million dollars.
Another would be working with the three
major players that are planning develop-
ments in the East 90 area which is part of
Quincy's service area.
Currently Great Northern Assets and St.
Joe Land Development are in the planning
stages. In addition Magnolia Forest is start-
ing into its second phase.
On the table could be a package sewer
plant that could be shared by the three enti-
ties and operated by the city, Cox said.
It would be to the developers advantage to
have a sewer. It would allow for a higher
density of homes, Cox said.,
Also on the table from Great Northern was


a swap for the city owned wayside park near'
Little River. There was a suggestion that
they would swap the property for property
in the development and build a fire sub-sta-'l
tion. The city would be responsible for pro-
viding the personnel to man the fire station.
Cox said that Great Northern was still"
going through the planning and develop-
mental stages and were at least 18 months
out from breaking ground.
N4o decisions were made in the workshop.
Cox said the issue will be back before the
commission in the coming months.

Complaints from the people who
live at Parkview Gardens Apart-
ments, as well as the management,
led the Gadsden County Sheriff's
Department Drug Unit and the
Quincy Police Department .to an
apartment in the public housing
complex last Friday morning where
four, people were arrested and
charged with various drug-related
violations.
Inv. Jim Corder of the GCSO said
their telephones were ringing off the
hook with people complaining about
cars coming iand going all times of
the night to apartment L147. He said
for two weeks the drug unit staked
out the Atlanta Street apartment and
also made a series of controlled
buys from inside the apartment.
Arrested were Gangsta Gospidon
a.k.a.'Derrick Jonhson, 32; Sammie
"Big Shankey" McCray, 24; Ronnie
"Biscuit" Johnson, 18; and Natasha
Moody, 24. "All of them were
charged with drug related violations
and Natasha Moody was also
charged with maintaining a dwelling
where drugs are sold, stored, or con-
,sumed because she was the lessee of
the apartment," Corder said. I
Dumii .a search of'the apartment
"'..UMiionTli'es found approl\iliatel\ 60
pieces of crack cocaine, powder
cocaine, and several articles of drug
paraphernalia consistent with street
level drug sales.
A 9mm handgun and ammunition
were also recovered. Corder said
they had information that firearms

If or whether the money, will be
recouped from Smith will probably
have to be resolved in court, which
will mean spending even more
money from an already financially
strapped school district.
In other matters, Issac Simmons
said he was concerned by, the num-
ber of resignations. Twenty people
resigned between July 11 and
August 8. "Can we do something

Parkview Gardens Apartments is a
federally subsidized housing comn-
plex and has strict regulation
regarding drugs and firearms on
their property. The State of Florida
provides for enhanced penalties for
drug and gun violations committed
in housing complexes. Both GospiU
don and McCray are convicted
felons with prior drug convictions.
"The' success of this investigation
is a direct result of cooperation(
between the concerned tenants o6
Parkview Gardens and the manage-
ment with the sheriff's department,"
Corder said. Anyone with informa-
tion regarding suspicious or drug
activity is asked to call Sgt. Cordel
at 875-8847 or 395-4138.

Hospital board wants local administration


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

If the Board.of County Commissioners gets its
way, Gadsden Community Hospital will be oper-
ated by a board of local citizens and by a paid
administrator.
First, they must figure a way to get out of the
mire they say they have inherited from the cur-
rent hospital management company, Ashford
Healthcare, Inc.
The board, which is chaired by Craig McMillan
also includes Dr. Jessie Furlow, Jimmie Suber,
and Jerry Wynn. They met Monday morning with
consultant Wayne McDaniels and others to get a
handle on what they face as a board, and what
problems they will face if the management com-
pany is terminated and the board assumes the
responsibility.
The one thing that board members know is that
the hospital is in debt. The unknown factor is just
how much debt. If the lease agreement is termi-
nated and the board operates the facility, they will
have to pay off those old debts. And that's not all,
they will have to re-negotiate contracts with ven-
dors from pharmaceuticals to food. The old con-
tracts were made with Ashford, not the board.
"I'm not painting a beautiful picture for you
because it's not," McDaniels said.
Before the board can do anything, it will have

agency room services more than
1,000 patients each month and cov-
ers the ambulance service and the
law enforcement department. I do
think that our community deserves
decent health care service in this
county. Please consider the continu-
ation of the Emergency Room
Department by getting a new con-
tract with EDCare or some new
company," Dr. Emko said.
He attended a meetirig of the board


to hire someone to make assessments of the
finances and the physical plant. Otherwise, he
said, they won't know exactly what they have to
work with. Financial statements by the manage-
ment may not reflect what the assets are on hand,
and what belongs to the hospital (county) and
what belongs to the leasing company must also
be decided.
The once certainty is that the county owns the
bricks and mortar. But who owns the equipment,
the beds, the blankets and myriad other inciden-
tals that are often looked over?
Then, there are some major safety violations that
need to be addressed immediately. Will the
county pay or will the leasing company pay,
knowing that they may receive a letter terminat-
ing them any day?
McDaniels explained to the board that if they
take on the hospital they must also take on the
salaries of the employees, who will then.become
county employees.
"We have always made it clear and this board
understands that the employees are caught in the
middle and they will be taken care of," said
McMillan.
Some of the employees attended the meeting
and said after that they have been threatened by
the company. Despite reassurances, employees
appeared to remain uneasy. And just which
employees are bound legally to go with the com-


of directors for the hospital Monday
morning as they were discussing
how to best operate. GCH. Dr.
Emko's revelation left the group
temporarily silent.' "I don't think
there is anything we as a board can
do about that. It's a matter for the
Board of County Commissioners,'
offered Craig McMilliam.
When asked why he thought the
company was leaving, Dr. Emko
said he suspected the company had
not been paid. Dr. Jessie Furlow vol-
unteered to call EDCare to find out
exactly what was behind the deci-
sion to leave GCH.
"They haven't been paid in several


pany? McDaniels said in some situations the top
staffers, mainly the administrator and director of
nursing may be assigned to another facility by the
company. While the situation of those positions at
GCH is unknown, he said board members ought
to keep it in mind.
"I'd like to tell you that you have an easy road
but you don't. You're probably going to have to
come up with a couple of million to get it (GCH)
up and running. I can almost bet you that this
company will go bankrupt when this contact is
terminated," McDaniels said.
GCH, like a lot of rural hospitals, is considered
a critical care hospital. There are 25 critical care
beds and 26 reserve beds. "You are still a 51-bed
facility and that can be attractive to other man-
agement companies," McDaniels said. Two com-
panies that have an interest in GCH attended the
meeting Monday.
Everyone agreed that the county should not lose
the hospital. "If you're talking about attracting
industry and economic development, you're
going to need a hospital," McDaniels said.
Assistant county attorney William Sexton was
given thei authority to get set up an escrow
account and submit the $1,500 necessary to make
application with the Agency for Health Care
Administration. The next meeting is scheduled for
Sept. 7 at 11:30 a.m. in the Board of County
Commissioners meeting room.


months, and they say the hospital
owes them over $100,000. They
really don't want to leave but they
have to cut their losses," she said.
Information she gathered from
EDCare was forwarded to Marlon
Brown, county manager, to share
with commissioners.
Dixon said he hated that the hos-
pital problems had come to this
point. "We knew it was going:to
happen sooner or later, we had
'hoped for later. There are a lot of
gray areas that we're going to have
to deal with, but we're committed to
doing what we have to do to keep it
open for our citizens," he said.


Alma Smith, GCH administrator,
said she is aware of the problems,
but that it's a Catch-22 situation for
the management company, too. Citi-
zens use the emergency room and
never pay. The company, she said,
cannot operate for free and when
citizens promise to pay and don't it
creates a problem.
Dixon admits that there are a lot of
gray financial areas and the Board
of County Commissioners will have
to assess all of these areas. "We
have to figure out how to handle
their (leasing company's) debt," he
said.

FMEArepresents 33 public pow er
communities across Flonda which
provide electricity to nearly three
million residents and business con-
sumers across the state.
Barry Moline, FMEA's executive,

Garner had established himself as a
strong leader on utility issues not
only in Chattahoochee, but through-
out the state.
"We are honored to have him serve


Lee Garner


as our president," Moline said.
Garner said he was pleased to ha\ e
been selected as FMEA.s president.
"This organization is helping our
state's elect tic iinduii- ,La). at tll
toretront of the nation by keeping its
members informed on legislate
issues and providing safety, training
and customer service resources,"
Garner said.
Garner added that he was proud to
represent the City of Chattahoochee
and other municipalities as the pres-
ident of FMEA.
"I think Beinjamin Franklin said it
best: "We must indeed all hang
together, or, most assuredly, we
must all hang separately", Garner
said.


"FMIE A is a good example of this
statement. By bringing together our
local communities the organization.

Garner has been the cit\ manager
of Chattahoochee for the pa-st eight
years. He is responsible for the effi-
cient administration of all city gov-
ernment departments, including the
city's utility and public works
department.
In addition to FMEA, Garner is a
member of the board of directors of
The Florida Municipal Power
Agency. He is retired from the
United States Army after 20 years of
service, and is also a member of the
Chattahoochee Rotary Club.


School board
Continued from Page 3
they could hold meetings at Greenboro
Elementary .School. Called the Child
Evangelism Fellowship Organization,
the after school Good New Clubs are
located an selected elementary schools.
They currently have programs in Leon
and Wakulla counties. Several board
members said they would like to know a
little more about the organization and
asked attorney Minnis to meet with the
executive director and present her find-
ings at the next board meeting.
Superintendent Reginald James said
he wanted to go on record as supporting
the effort because it is in keeping with


his faith-based initiative.
The club activities focus on character
development by teaching children moral
and ethical concepts based on the Bible.
Also, a special workshop has been set
to discuss the City of Midway's request
to be considered for a new school. Board
members agreed that Midway should
have a new school in the future based on
the population projections from Paul
Piller, city manager.
James said he met with Piller and he
Wants Midway, Tallahassee Community
College and the school board to form a
partnership and develop a charter school
if a public school cannot be built. James
said Piller indicated that Tallahassee
SCommunity College has the money to


help, but was not specific.
"I'm in favor of ownership," said Sim-
mons. He added that if theie is to be a
school in Midway it should belong to
the school board. A workshop has been
set for Sept. 13 to further discuss the
plan:
The Board was treated to a fashion
show of sorts when two to three children *
from each school modeled uniforms,
just prior to the business part of the
meeting. The parade of colors drew
applause and a few giggles from the
audience.
Public Information Officer Shaia
Beckwith presented Rep. Curtis
Richardson a plaque for his work in the
2005 legislative session.

It's Time for a Change
God is still in control regardless what it seems like Satan is already
defeated. God is a God of love, mercy and kindness. We can always
.stand on the promises of God. There is no failure in God. We must
claim a successful school year, home and community change. We
need to renew our vows to God. There can be hindrances to prayer
even when we pray. Behold the Lord's hand is not shortened that it
cannot save; neither his ear heavy that it cannot hear; but your
iniquities have separated between you and your God and your sins have hid his face
from you, that he will not hear. Isa 59:1-2. For the eyes of the Lord are over the
righteous and his ears are open. unto their prayers but the face of the Lord is against
them that do evil. I Peter 3:12-17. This can mean the whole world.
God called Moses up on the mountain to give him laws for the people to obey and
live a different life. While he was gone the people got restless and began to worship a
golden calf made by their leader, Aaron: Maybe we are not worshiping a calf as such
but these modem day idols look like they are taking control. Any and every kind of
idol is so present we hardly have time to surrender our time and service for the Lord.
We need to do as Ezra who found the scroll, the Word of God. The people gladly and
willingly listened all day.
We need to take the time out and go back to the real sincere study of God's Word.
It's not too late for God to turn the whole world around. Pray that God will save,
protect, lead and guide our youth. We all need a back-to-God revival. No one in-
particular is to blame. Sin and Satan cannot control God's world. Let us keep our focus
on Jesus. All power is in his hand. It's time for a change. Lord, save us all. Thank you
for your love and mercy to all. Forgive us our shortcomings, in Jesus' name.
Humbly submitted,
Evangelist Florence M. Bradwell

A Catholic Church


opens in Havana

Sts. Francis and Clare part of
: Catholic Church in iAmerica


Sts. Francis and Clare Catholic
Church is a member of the Catholic
Church in America (CCA). CCA has
progressed' passed our Roman her-
itage by taking steps forward in sev-
eral areas. The Catholic Church in
America is not the Roman Catholic
Church. It is, 'however, a valid
branch of Catholicism offering the
sacraments to all who come hon-
estly, seeking a relationship with
Christ.
CCA is a valid branch of Catholi-
cism offering all seven sacraments.
Like clergy in the Roman Catholic
.and Orthodox Churches, our clergy
can trace their valid ordinations
back through these church bodies,to
the apostles by way of Apostolic
Succession. Apostolic Succession
refers to the lineage of ordination of
a bishop.
After Christ's resurrection and
ascension into heaven, the apostles
brought the faith throughout the
known world and set up communi-
ties of believers. Before moving on,
they would select people from
among the faithful and lay hands on
them in prayer, thus imparting a.per-
manent grace on their souls. These,
in turn, did the same to future gen-
erations of faithful, in an unbroken
line of ordinations that continues to
this day.
Validly ordained bishops often
maintain charts of their Apostolic
Succession so they may trace their
ordination directly'back to one or
more apostles, who, in turn, 'were
selected directly by Jesus Christ.
There are many valid branches of
Catholicism throughout the world,
and many are not part of the Roman
Communion. After Christ's death
and resurrection,
His apostles went off throughout
the known world, baptizing people,
"In the name of the Father and of the
Son and of the Holy Spirit" as
instructed. The communities they
left behind evolved into different
rites of the Church. Initially, all of
these communities were independ-
ent of one another, but connected in
their common beliefs.
As they grew, their leaders (bish-
ops) would meet in a number of
Councils in order to make sure. they
were all adhering to the original
faith left to them by our Lord. Due
to human frailties, over time, some
of these communities would sepa-
rate from others, sadly fragmenting
the one Body of Christ.
Examples of such communities are
the Roman Catholic Church, itself


holding more than 20 different rites
(the vast majority of Roman
Catholics in the U.S. are of the Latin
Rite).
As one member of CCA said, "dis-
agrees with so many of Rome's
teachings so I stopped going to
mass, but I still feel Catholic, That's
why we're here!
The Catholic Church in America is
fully Catholic, but is not under the
authority of the Roman Catholic
Church. Our bishops, priests and
deacons are all validly ordained and
we offer all seven sacraments (bap-
tism, reconciliation, communion,
confirmation, marriage, anointing of
the sick, holy orders) but we do not
judge. We invite all baptized,
believing Christians to receive com-
munion.
We have received many questions
about us and our church, and here
are a few of them.
1.What is the Catholic Church in
America?
CCA was founded by Bishop,
Michel Pugin. He was elevated to
his position.by Justo Roque Gonza-
lez Trininio, Primate for the
Catholic Apostolic Church in Amer-
ica. Bishop Trininio was a bishop of
the Brazilian National Catholic
Church. The Brazilian National
Catholic Church was founded in
1945'by Bishop Carlos Duarte-
Costa, founder of the Catholic
Apostolic Church of Brazil and for-
mer Roman Catholic Bishop of
Botucatu, Brazil. For a fuller
description please see CCA's web
page at www.catholicchurchinamer-
ica.org.
2. What are similarities and differ-
ences between the CCA and Roman
Catholicism?
Several similarities are in our
Mass .and our sacraments, they are
identical to our Roman friends in
structure and form. We believe the
real presence in the sacrament of
communion. We believe that Mary
is the mother of God, and that she is
the immaculate conception.
Several areas in which we differ
are in our policies, we do not
believe in the infallibility of the
Pope. We do believe that: 1) Priest
celibacy should be an option (our
priests can be married or single), 2)
in the ordination of women, in open
vs. closed communion table, 3) in
the availability of communion to the
divorced and remarried. (This is for
one divorce and one remarriage,
after that it is a case by case issue.

Pleased with grade

Really appreciated this article. I grew up
in Gadsden County and graduated from
James A. Shanks High School in 1980.

I now live in Great Falls,- Montana. I
always knew that Gadsden County had'
nome of the best teachers and students
n the state even when I was attending :
School there years ago. I knew this
despite the low ratings of recent ydars. I
wyas so pleased to hear about the
progress that.has been made.

Money alone will not make better stu-

year is a step in the right direction if it is
properly and seriously enforced. The
most needed thing in the schools is disci-
pline. Allowed to be administered by the
teachers and backed at home by all par-
ents, to assure classtime is learning time
without distractions. The curriculum ,
needs to be pared of all subjects butithe

demic capability. It is a shame to see the
educational standings of this country
when compared in the world community.
Other.nations are out teaching us and we'
will pay dearly for this in the future. My
last gripe is the teaching in languages
other than English. The teaching of
other languages is totally acceptable!
But, all schools should teach only in Eng-
lish and all business should be conducted
only in English.

Gadsden County will remember a leg-
end on Friday evening, August 26, when
100 Friends of W. A. Woodham sponsor
an event honoring the long-time county
sheriff a the Quincy National Guard
Arrmory. A 6:00 p.m. reception, 7:00 din-
ner and dance afterward will celebrate
Woodham's life while raising funds for a
scholarship in his name to Chipola Col-

Can you believe football season has started
already? It seems like it gets earlier every
year.
I went to the West Gadsden Panthers' pre-
season game against FAMU High Friday
night and I can tell you it was a hot game. I
believe the temperature was bouncing near 99
degrees at 7:30 P.M. when the game started.
The Panthers lost 7-0 and for the most part
it was a pretty good. game.
As I wa\s standing on the side lines taking
photos of the game I notice something I want
to share with you.
There were several hundred Panther fans
there to support their team. They easily out-'
numbered their counterparts across the field.
I mention this because I think it is impor-
tant.


All of the Panthers' home games I have
been to have been well attended.
That's a good thing by the way. Parents.
showing support for their children's school
and their athletic programs can be the glue
that holds a school and a community together.
I know that there is also an academic, side
as well and that is important, too. I don't.
want to take away from that aspect of school,
but for today I'm going to write about foot- ,
ball. wi.o '. 01, .
\ihile I'imon the subject let me add two
more schools to the equation.
SEast Gadsden has had a rough start winning
only a couple of games in their first two sea-
sodns. But, don't tell the Jaguarfans that.
S The Jaguar stands,are full at every home
game. Through thick and thin the parents and
students have supported their football team.
Robert F. Munroe's Bobcats have over the
past few years struggled as well, but their
Fans have been there to support them no mat-
ter what.
There is something about high school
sports that tends to bring a community
together.

"W..A. touched the lives of thousands
of people," said long-time friend James
Harold Thompson, Gadsden County
native and former Speaker of the Florida
House of Representatives. "He was truly
a unique person. He loved the people of
our county. He probably could have
achieved anything he wanted in public life
S" yet he chose Gadsden County,"
Thompson observed. "Now we have an
Following Friday night's reception and
dinner, a brief program wili honor the leg-
endary sheriff's memory. Included will
be representatives of the Florida Sheriffs'
Association and the Woodham family, as
well as members of the legislative dele-
gation and other dignitaries. Attendees
then will be treated to an evening of fun
and music provided by The Embers, the
world-famous Raleigh, NC, band
renowned for its nostalgic "beach music."
Tickets for the Friday event are avail-
able from the Gadsden County Chamber
of Commerce (telephone 627-9231) at
$150 per couple. Tax-deductible checks
should be made payable to the Chipola
Foundation.


"Friday Night Lights" it is easy to understand
why that can happen.
It is an American tradition.
You can have two people thlathate each
other show up at a high school game, because
they both support their team..There is some-
thing about that American phenomenon asso-
ciated with high school sports that brings
people together, even if they don't like each
other. .
SIremember an instance when I-';as living
in Carrollton, Georgia. where two bitter polit-
ical enemies would sit in the reserved section
together (obviously not side b\ side L
(Just as a side note to this story let me say
that we love football in North Florida. but
those people in the northern part of Georgia
are obsessed with it. The Carrollton stadium
by the way held 8;000 fans.)
Back to my. story. :
I knew these two people were mortal ene-
inies and would do evervrhirrg t their power
to desffoy one another, but they were at e\ ern
game that I attended.
I asked a friend one night how they could
come week after week and sit that close to
each other.
TiTe i;tWge said, had both played football
,. ,atiCanrrollton Hi-dgh.School. They may ha\e
hated each other, he added, but they loved
their school and the football team..
Sports, it seems, transcends all boundaries.
I know I grew up in a different time. But I
remember well when Quincy High School
and Carrer-Parramore High School packed
out their respective stadiums I.:
Yes, there are some bad things that ma
have happened in those years. But I tell you
what, for a few hours on a cool fall Friday
night they were all forgotten as \we cheered
our teams on to victory: .
Let's continue to support our teams, not
just in football, but other sports as well. And
that means girls, too.
I believe the side effects may' ell be worth
it.

Our cannons state that a person
who is a Baptized Christian has the
right to receive communion. We
don't refuse people communion; we
believe it is up to God to decide if a

lates the scouts' minds, Mocksaid.
Of particular interest to Mock
were the Scouts from England.
They had set up a replica of the
first "Brown Sea Camp held in
England before Boy Scouting was
brought to America.
"The boys had on period cos-
tumes, and the camp was set up.
like it would have beetibaick in
Scotland." Mock said.
Another replica of the first Amer-
i an camp, complete with teepees
was a hit with the scouts, Mock
said.
Mock said the one thing he
enjoyed was watching the scouts
trade patches.
"There was an area where only the
scouts could go (no adults allowed)
and trade patches," Mock said.
One boy he meet had brought
over 3,000 patches to the jamboree
to trade.
The adults could trade among
themselves Mock said, but were
delegated to another section of the
camp.
Mock enjoyed his time at the
Jamboree, but there was one prob-
lem he found difficult to deal with.
"It was hot," Mock said. the first
three days he said the heat index
reached 115 degrees with the ther-
mometer measuring 102 degrees.
Mock plans to go back to the
Jamboree in 2010. The 100th

He plans to take his granddaughter
Laura as well.
Mock hopes Laura, age 12 will join
"Venturing" (formerly Explorers), a
.coed Scout program for boys and
girls ages 14-18 and go with him to
the 2010 National Jamboree.
Until then it is back to basics for
Mock as the vice president of prop-
erties for the local Suwannee River
Area Boy Scouts of America organ-
ization.
He will also be helping the local
troops and continuing his work at

For Mock, Scouting is a life's
work he has enjoyed immensely
and plans to continue enjoying for
a long time.

judged the mountain climbing out-
fits. The winners were: first place-
Mrs. Leynes, second place-Mrs.
Perkins and third place-Mr. Evans.
All staff members were introduced
as they climbed the mountain with
.their team leaders.
The administration used William
Faulker's quote, "The man who
moves a mountain begins by carry-
ing away small rocks." While
removing "small rocks" of: risky
test scores, revolving community
perception, rocky school safety,
rugged student behavior and
repelling school culture. the staff is
motivated to start this school year's
journey with a positive attitude.
After the District School's Rally at
East Gadsden on August 9, all of
Shanks' employees were given a
tour of the city to see where most of
our students live.

Volunteers from Mt. Hoseainclude (from left to right) Queen Thomas,
Martha Walker, and Vera Marshall.

Mt. Hosea gets 'A+' for "Volunteer"

efforts at St. John Elementary


, We are off to a great start at St.
John Elementary School. Our'
Superintendent's intuitive to get
faith -based organizations involved
is paying big dividends for our stu-
dents.
Chaired by Ms. Queen Thomas;
Martha Walker, Vera Marshall,
Anderson Thomas, Andrew Butler,
Breanna Shy, and Betty Bradley of
Mt. Hosea Missionary Baptist
Church have volunteered numerous
hours.
Their services have included pro-
viding refreshments for our Open
House, helping faculty and staff get
our little ones off the buses in the


morning of their first days of school
and helping us make sure that each
one gets back on the right bus in thd
afternoon.
.- They have assembled decodable
'take home books, coded assess-
ments with the sunshine state stan-
dards, and worked one to one with
students on learning ,their sight
words. Most of all they have spread
a positive, caring attitude through-
out our campus.
Mrs. Walker and Mrs. Lee, admin-'
istrators, at St. John Elementary
wholeheartedly thank each member
for their dedication in adopting the
St. John Rocket family.


Parental Involvement will make a
big difference in a child's education.
This is why I want to thank all 314
parents who attended Orientation
with their children, on Sunday,
August 14.
Shanks students looked great in
their uniforms on the first day of
school. Students are expected to
continue to wear their uniforms
daily. The uniform guidelines are as
follows: Monday Black top and
Khaki bottoms, Tuesday Orange
top and black bottoms, Wednesday -

Thursday Orange top and khaki

black bottoms.
Students are expected to clear the
campus by 4 p.m. every day, unless
they are participating in anii
approved aft ---school activity.
School starts at 7:45 a.m. and ends.

served from 7:15 until 7:35 a.m.
Students transported by private cars,
must be dropped off and picked up

tHE NFL
* Like all good or bad sports columnist I
have to get around to making my predic-
tions fdr a lot of upconung sports season.
I'll be the first to admit, that any fan
out there probably knowvss s much or more
about any given sport than I do.
But the fun is still the speculation about
what will happen.
Seldom that speculation hardly ever hits
right on the head.
Take last year I picked the Indianapo-
lis Cots to win the Super Bowl by defeat-
ing the Carolina Panthers.
Fans know that didn't happen because
New England took their second straight


crown defeating Philadelphia in
the bic eame.
Though I was wrong. I'd be
amiss if I didn't take another
chance at predicting this years
NTL season


AFC EAST
Because that's where the
champions come from, that's
where I stan my predictions.
The winner of this division is
.a no braiuer. The Patriots again'
Mianmi. even with a new coach
in Nick Saban is still always from reaching
their past glory. Buffalo can't find a quar-
terback, and the Jets pick the wrong time
to faller.
Tom Brady and company win this divi-
sion again.

AFC SOUTH
Jacksonville won a lot of close games
last year and just nussed the play-offs. The
Jaguars figure to be a little better ths time
around with the maturing of qb BTyon
Leftwich.
I don't think they'll win the division but
I do think they will be a play-off team this
year
Indianapolis will win the division. Witll


Payton Manning and crew the Colts have
too much offense for any of the other
teams to take the crown.
This division is a tough one though as
both Houston and Tennessee have solid
teams. So, the Jags and the Colts aren't
play-off shoo ins but they should survive.

AFC NORTH
Pinsburg with rookie quarterback Ben
Roethlisberger was the league's surprise
last year. The Steelers won't surpnse peo-
ple this time around but they'll take the
division.
Baltimore is tough but not finessed
enough to get back on top. Cleveland has
no quarterback and Cincinnati is still the
Bengals.

AFC WEST
This ma) be the division no one \wants
to win.
If Drew Brees stays healthy I think San
Diego will take it because they have
enough defense. Denver is still looking for
a qb to replace Elway. and Oakland needs
more than Randy Moss to get then in the
picture.
Kansas City will score but the Chiefs
still can't stop anybody.


NFC EAST
Philadelphia will be the favorite. The
Terrell Owens deal though is in their head
and will open the door for Dallas and Drew
Bledsole. Eli Manning is a season away
from leading the Giants to the play-offs
and Washington is seasons awa\ from any-
body leading them to post season.

NFC SOUTH
Micheal Vick is probably the league's
most exciting player. He's enough to take
the Falcons to the championship of this
division even though a sold team like Car-
olina will challenge Vick's bunch.
Tampa Bay still ain't close to being
their Super Bowl team and New Orleans
will still be the almost made it Saints.

NFC NORTH,
It will be another battle between Green
Ban and Minnesota. Farve and Culpepper
are by far the most likely to take their
teams to dil ision championships. I think
Culpepper will %win it this year as he has
more help.
Chucago \ ill be an improved team due
to defense, but Detroit shouldn't even have
an idea about being the first team to actu-
ally host a Super Bowl


NFC WEST
This is the weakest division in pro foot-
ball. So weak. Seattle won it last year. I
think it will be so weak this year that the
Arizona Cardinals will win it.
St. Louis. and San Francisco the divi-
stons other teams %ill spin their wheels
and allow Arizona to make the play-offs
though they won't last long.

AFC WINNER
My play-off picks are the Patriots, Indi-
anapolis. Pittsburgh, San Diego, Jack-
sonville, and I guess the Jets who will
sneak through.
And the Pats are just too deep and pro-
fessional not to \in the AFC play-offs
again.

NFC WINNER
Dallas. Atlanta, Minnesota. and Arizona
will be division winners with Green Bay
and Carolinaearing the runner-up spots.
The NFC winner will be Atlanta.

SUPER BOWL
The Pats will be read' but thus year,
Michael Vick will drive them nuts. and
next winter there will be dirty birds flying
all over Hotlanta in celebration of winning
a Super Bowl.


Panthers struck by Baby


Rattlers in kick-off classic


by Cale Wheeler
FAMU High defeated West Gadsden 7-0 in Friday
night's Sam Madison Kick-Off Classic at Bragg Sta-
dium.
The Rattlers got the only score of the game midway
the first quarter.
After that it was a defensive battle, though, the pan-
thers did threaten to score a few times.


Offensively Ron Bums led the way rushing for 130
yards on 21 carries.
On defense Alan Blair, Chris Atkins, Darius Win-
bush, and Bums had nice games with Blair getting 9
tackles, Atkins racking up 7 along with a sack, and
Burns getting 6.
The Panthers open their regulai-season Friday when
they play at Jacksonville Bolles.


The Panther defense was strong even in defeat.

Seminole Ramlins

August 21, 2005
A point in history, how Jim Woodruff Lake was renamed
Lake Seminole. When Jim Woodruff Dam was dedicated,
"Wingate's Barbeque"served the dedication on the site.
With the dedication on site, Mr. Woodruff himself was
there, the Governors of 3 states was there along with sev-
eral Senators and local polititions as could fit on the plat-
form. It was officially named "Jim Woodruff Lake".
Very soon the County Commision or Seminole Co. and
the city of Donelsonville, very quietly had a bill passed in
Atlanta to rename the lake to Lake Seminole. At the
dedication of the name changing, decendents of Billy
Bowlegs, the only true Chief of the Seminole blood line,
was there with a whole lot of men and ladies of the Semi-
nole Tribe in their full skirts and blouses with beads
aplenty.
A point to remember, the real Seminole nation was unde-
feated and still remains in Florida. The rest went to Okla-
homa, where they still remain, defeated.
We mite note that when you kill one muskeeto, 1,000
comes to his funeral. It's true.
Mr. Larry Pittman and Mr. Vernon Howell of Valdosta,
who are guests in the campground here at Wingates, has a
nack of finding the Catfish of Lake Seminole. They've
brung in a cooler half full of 4 and 5 pounders and a whop-
ping big 22 pounder was on top. You take a 22 lb. Chan-
nell Cat and he'll teach you a lesson on how to keep a rod
up and not let the fish git a straight down pull on the rod.
If you do, he'll bust most tackle.
Bream and catfish is the talk of the landing these days.
They are the best bet for a good catch of fish. The perch
is a thing gone by but they will come back very soon.

Commissioners give up on their own $5,000 raise in $9.4 million city finance package


by BYRON SPIRES
Times Staff Writer
The Quincy city commissioners
over four days of workshops have
completed their 2005-2006 budget.
"This budget is bare bones," city
manager Willie Earl Banks told
commissioners at the end of the
budget workshop Monday night. ,
The commissioners had the city
staff go back several times and trim
the budget more. during the work-
shop process.
The main focus for the commis-
sioners was the general fund or the
fund that pays the city's operational
needs.
Commissioner Finley Cook had
asked the city staff to cut a million
dollars from the general fund budget


at last Wednesday's budget meeting,
from $10.1 million to $8.8 million.
By the end of the night the general
fund bottomed out, according to
finance director Neva Reed, at
$9.417 million.
Included in this year's budget had
been a $5,000 salary raise per com-
missioner. After a lengthy debate,
Monday night Mayor Sherrie Taylor
could not get a majority of the com-
missioners to agree to the raise.
Taylor. said there had been no
salary increases for the commission
in five years and she felt it was time
for raises. Taylor gave as her reason-
ing the increased load of work that's
currently on thecoinmissioners and
future responsibilities that will be
piling up.

mother's house and that he was ready to give
up.
Sheriff Morris Young identified the man as
Ventice Carter. Young drove to Greensboro,
about 10 miles southwest of Quincy, to pick up
Carter. Clad in a white t-shirt and blue jeans, as
Young drove up, Carter walked immediately
from around the side of the houe with his hands
raised.
His mother sat on the porch and two brothers
sat under trees at the edge of the yard. All
watched in silence.
At the jail Carter, 31, thanked Young for com-
ing to pick him up. "I did the right thing, but I
needed you to come and pick me up." Carter
said, extending his right hand to Young. "Good
luck to you," Young said, and left Carter in the
hands of two investigators who were working
the case.
"We were on our way to Tallahassee to Chan-
nel Six, you were going to be on tomorrow's
crime stopper," Deputy Larry Smith said, reach-
ing into the trunk to show Carter a flier they..,
planned to broadcast through the region.
Carter explained to the investigators that he
had nothing to do with the burglaries in his area.
"That's what I'm talking about. I got tired of my
mother not being able to go into stores without
seeing my picture all over the place," he said,
laughing to hide his embarrassment.,
Just ho\ Carter \'ent rrom being some.onp ,~
bouncing baby boy to sitting in a cold gray cell
block may be only too typical of rural black
males in America.
He was born the sixth of nine children in
1974. His parents, he said, loved all of their
children and provided as well as. they could..
They were "God-fearing" and taught their six
boys and three girls right from wrong. "It wasn't
:anything they did. It was me," he said.
Carter attended Chattahoochee Elementary
and Chattahoochee High School. He was not a
:standout student. He's a scrapper who doesn't
mind throwing a punch, but at five-foot-five
inches tall and not very stocky he didn't play

to reach the proposed $9.417million general fund budget.

football or basketball, the outlet for many young
black males.
At school he didn't cause a lot of trouble.
Mosty, he skipped a few classes here and there
and had a fight or two..He quit going to school
in tenth grade, opting to sit at home and walk
down long dusty country roads or the equally
long railroad tracks that crisscross the outskirts
of Greensboro to meet up with other young
males who decided that education was not the
way for them..
I didn't do anything all day. Just sit around
mostly," he said.
Longing to get out of Greensboro, Carter
moved to Nashville, TN, when he was 23 years
old to be with a friend who had moved there
from Chattahoochee. One night they got caught
up in what Carter refers to as "street stuff'. He
and his friend got the worst of it: he was shot
and his friend was killed. "So long" to the big
city and bright lights.
He came back home and settled again into the
country life; Carter soon found love. Hhe mar-
ried ard followed his Army wife to Fayetteville,
NC, where she was stationed. In North Carolina
he worked with a lawn service crew. He became
a father and tried the straight and narrow.
But with limited education his employment
options were equally as limited. Carter managed
to get trained in welding somewhere along the
line but has never used the trade. His ready
excuse is that he doesn't have a car and he can't
get to work without a car. He refuses to get a
driver's license and finally admitted "'me nd '
Thl-.n or'thinng don t get along %%\ell .I
Carter always had one sure way to make a few
fast bucks. For most of his adult life, he said, he
has turned to peddling small amounts of "weed"
for spending money and to meet his needs. He
also relies heavily on the kindness of others,
mostly women, when the marijuana sales fall
short. "They (investigators) stopped my girl-
friend (a 41-year-old woman) and asked her
heree I was. That's when I knew they were
looking for me for sure," he said.
Carter said he has been in prison three times.
Once for aggravated battery in Chattahoochee
where a man was.injured,,once for violating pro-
bation, and once for fighting. He has been jailed


for driving without a license and.no tag. He
likes to drive but says getting a license just
seems to be too much trouble. "I'll just buy an
old car for cash and put any kind of tag on
it-1983, 1995, I don't care," he said laughing at
his own predicament.
He'd prefer not tobe in jail, but it really does-
n't bother him that much. It's not like he has a
lot to do. On a typical day he gets up around 9
a.m. He doesn't eat'breakfast. He sur\ e\ s the
woods around the mobile home where'he lives
then he looks down the railroad tracks. Some
time later in the day he will meet up with
friends and stare at the woods.
If he has any he will sell a few $5 and'$10
packages of marijuana. If noi he waits for his
lady to get in from work and cook dinner. This,
he said, is,his life day in and day out.
Last week, he said,.he wasn't going to even
try to raise the money he needs to get out of jail.
"I'm going to sit this one out," he said, adding,
"I'm tired of running. I'm tired of my picture
being on walls, I'm tired of people telling me.
that the cops are looking for me."
He ought to be tired of running: For the past
three weeks Carter said he hasn't slept at night
and his days have been spent at home looking
out of windows waiting for the investigators to
ride up. "I could see them coming, I'd just run
out of the back door and through the woods. I
kept running until I got tired or until somebody
picked me up and brought me back home
again," he said.
If he's as innocent as he says he is. Carter :
ca or won't explain why he has been running
and hiding. Besides, according to him, the only
burglary of a dwelling charge he caught was
years ago when during an argument with his for-.
mer wife he hit the front door and it fell off.
He may sell drugs, but the burglaries are not
his thing. "My mother would kill me if she
thought I was stealing," he said.
At 31, Carter is reminded that he is no longer
a kid,and that the young men in prison these
days are stronger and meaner.
"I stopped doing a lot of stuff. After this, I
think I'm going to try to get my life back
together," he said, looking concerned for the
first time.


Taylor said about holding a com-
missioner seat.
Her requestfor a raise did not fall
on deaf ears.
Cook said he was uncomfortable
requesting a raise when he had been
so adamant in asking the city's staff
to cut their budgets.
Commissioners Andy Gay and
Derrick Elias both said they would
not vote for the raises.
Commissioner Keith Do\% dell said
he was in favor of the raises..
All of the commissioners praised,
the staff for their work on the budget
and thanked them for the cuts they
were able to, make.
Highlights of this year's budget
include:
No change in the city's millage
rate. It will sta\ at 2.75 mnil.
Eight positions that are currently
not filled will not be funded in the
new budget.
The Quincy Police department
will get six new police cruisers.
Although it had been originally


budgeted at $240,000 the QPD still
has some money to be used for pre-
liminary work on a new police sta,
tion. The final cut left them with
$140,000.
As a side note to the proposed new,
police station, commissioner Gay'
asked if it would be possible to havei
a referendum that could be brought
before the city's residents for a local
option sales tax. That idea and onel
involving special taxing are on the!
agenda for later in the year. )
Raises for non-unioni
employees stayed in the budget. :
$411,000 has been bud,
geted to be put into reserves for the,
next budget year.
SAlthough it had been originally;
cut from the budget there will be
some money for non-profits left in. I
The commission will now have
two public meetings in Septembei
(held during their regular meetings
September 13 and September 27)
for open public forums to discuss
the 2005-2006 budget.

Warning issued for '

mosquito avoidance,

A medical alert has been issued for Gadsden County
atr human cases of Eastern Equine Encephalitis,(EEE)

DEET are generally recommended. Other effective
mosquito repellents, as reported by the CDC in April
2005, contain Picaridin or'oil of lemon eucalyptus.
These products are generally available at local pharma-
cies. Look for active ingredients to be listed on the
product label.
*Apply insect repellent to exposed skin, or onto cloth-
ing, but not under clothing.
*In protecting children, read label instructions to be
sure the repellent is age-appropriate. According to the
CDC, mosquito repellents containing oil of lemon euca-
lyptus should not be used on children under the age of 3
years. DEET is not recommended on children younger
than 2 months old.
*Infants should be kept indoors or mosquito netting
should be used over carriers when mosquitoes are pres-
ent.
*Avoid applying repellents to the hands, of children.
Adults should apply repellent first to their own hands
and then transfer it to the child's skin and clothing.
SIf additional protection ii necessary, applN a perme-,
thrin repellent directly\ to \our clothing. Again. always'
follow.the manufacturer's directions.

24 Gadsden County Times August 25, 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 your supporting us. Come
by or call.
