Infrastructure



key word in



development,



county says


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

The growing number of requests
by deveolpers to change land uses
from one designation to another to
allow housing developments has
members of the Board of County
Commissioners questioning growth,
and just how much should be
allowed without the proper infra-
structure.
The problem is that most of the
developers aren't willing to build
sewer and water treatment systems
to serve their potential buyers and
" are not close enough-to any munic-
ipalities to hook on without major
expense.
Besides, a person residing in the
county doesn't have to hook up to a
municipality unless they are a quar-
ter of a mile or less from an existing
system.
That means developers are want-
ing to put down septic tanks.
Comnuissioners who want growth
also don't want a county full of sep-
tic tanks. They look no further than
northern Leon County. where .septic
tanks have gone bad and the cOUnty
now has the. added financial burden
of extending its sewer lines to
accommodate residents of those
developments that have relied on
spetic tanks for nearly 20 years.
Tuesday night, Larry Witt, who is
looking to develop substantial
acreage to be called the Highlands at
Lake Talquin, met with opposition
from the residents even after he
promised to install three sewage
treatment plants.
The plants, he said, cost nearly
$300,000 each and the water would
be recycled and could be used to


irrigate the grass of the homeown-
ers. He said Talquin Electric was
considering buying the systems
after a few years and operating
them.
"I would like to see in writing your
agreement with Talquin and I want
to' see a multi-year agreement for the
maintenance of the sewage treat-
ment plant. I'd like to see where you
are going to buy them from," said
Commissioner Brenda Holt.
Witt said the treatment plants
would come from an Atlanta comnr-
pany and they would be very rel-i
able because all three would not all
stop operating at the same time.
"We can't have it both ways.We
have someone wo is trying to be

It was just a man in a dress,


wig standing in line at a bank



Police say prank not well thought out


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

It wasn't a bank robbery, but when a man walked into
the Capital City Bank last Friday afternoon wearing a
dress, a mask, a wig, a straw hat, and carrying a bag, it
sure caused a lot of commotion.
Tony McSwain, who walked into the bank in the
unique outfit, was later arrested on an outstanding war-
rant charge but no charges were filed for attempted bank
robbery.
"He never attempted to rob the bank. He didn't have a
note, or gun, he didn't ask anybody for money, and he
didn't threaten anyone," said Capt. James Hughes of the
Quincy police department.
Witnesses said he walked in the bank and stood in the


teller's line with others.
"The bank was full of people. He was standing right
beside me. I looked over at him and I thought 'it's
awfully hot and it's too early for Halloween'," said one
woman who asked not to be identified.
The woman said a bank official walked up to the man
and told him to get out of the bank several times. "He
turned around and just started running," she said.
After a chase through town by deputies and Quincy
police officers, McSwain was caught in a residential
area behind the Livestock Pavilion west of town..
"From what he told us, one of his ex-girlfriends
worked at the bank and he wanted to see if she would
recognize him dressed like that," Capt. Hughes said,
adding, "It was a prank that wasn't well thought out."

Burglars hit Talquin area

Several homes lose over $15,000 in belongings


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
With the arrest of 20 year old
Vernon L. Ellison the Gadsden
County Sheriff's Department
believes that it has solved seven bur-
glaries that occurred throughout the
county during the last two months.
Ellison allegedly told authorities
that he committed the burglaries
alone. When the value of the loot
was added up, the total came to
more than $15,500.
Following his arrest, Ellison
agreed to take investigators Shelton
.Turner and James Dennard on a
guided tour of the homes he burglar-
:ized. The first stop was in the Lake
.Talquin area where Ellison pointed
'out a home that he burglarized on
'July 20. "He pawned the items tak-
en from that residence," wrote Inv.
:Shelton Turner in a press release.
Around the comer, Ellison pointed
to another home he burglarized on
the same day. This time he kept the
items he took from that home,
i.vhich included a coin collection, a
camera, and a wireless cell phone.
Next, Ellison steered the two
intesiigators to the Midway area.
This time the target was a single
\omanri. Her home was robbed on
Jul\ 11. None of the items taken
-from her home was recovered.
"Leaving Midway, Ellison
instructed (Turner) to travel the
.ack road to Gremna. Ellison pointed
put a residence oni Solomon Dairy
Road that was burglarized on
July29' Turner wrote. Approxi-
hmately $250 in property was taken
and nothing was recovered.
* A little further north, Ellison told
Turner to drive to The Farms of
Quncy. There he burglarized a home
:on July10. No property was recov-
ered from that burglary, either. Next
stop was a home in the Magnolia
Villa development. The homeowner
had property worth over $1,335 tak-
kn. Only $135 was recovered. That
burglary occurred on July 15.
| Ellison also told authorities that
he burglarized a Quincy home and
took a laptop computer. "He sold the


item to a clerk at a convenience
store for $250," Turner wrote.
"Based on what he told us of the
burglaries and what we knew, he


was charged with seven counts of
burglary. This will clear up a signif-
icant number of, burglaries in our
county," Turner said.

Relatives are safe after hurricane
Victims of Katrina need your help


finding Roads

By: Byron Spires


Where were you when Katrina hit ?

Huricane will be remembered a long time


The hearts of many people go out to the
victims of Hurricane Katrina. I found myself
turning back to the television time and time
again. A lot of people have relatives and
friends, or were just so intrigued by the
enormity'of it all and the pain and suffering
.by, so many Americans. It all seemed unreal.
I scanned the crowd looking for my first
cousin, LLoyd Bell. So far no one has heard
from him and we're all getting more anxious
as the days go by. My other, cousins are safe
4in a hotel in Houston. I called one of my
cousins fast Saturday night about 10 p.m.
!She said they were packing a few things
then and were headed west. I asked' why
i they wouldn't come east where there is
!plenty of family. They were told by
Louisiana authorities, she said, to go west.
They are worldwide travelers and I
reminded her to take all of their scrapbooks
and photo albums.
"They're safe. I've already double
wrapped them in plastic and put them on the
top shelf in the closet," she said., Tuesday
they found out that their house was standing
in water that had reached the roof..
They are lucky. They are safe and well.

A lesson for us

Dear Editor,

After this frightening hurricane and her destruc-
tion west of us, did you think about what would
have happened to us in the Panhandle? I cer-
tainly did. Having a "special needs patient" liv-
ing with me certainly turns my head toward the
weather channel alot. What would we do? The,
question asked to those folks that had to stay,
where were the funds for them to leave and where
would they go? To the Holiday Inn? The thought
of being stuffed in a football stadium makes me
sick to my stomach. And if you left your home
out there, you can't get back to it anyway! So
what is a family supposed to do? Over-population
is a factor here. Roads leaving out of the area is a
factor, Accessabilty to emergency services is zero
right now for the needy. Emergency staff
around here, are you ready?
Larry King Live had a special on last night and
a northern female called in to ask if the ones that
did not evacuate be fined? Lady, I'd like to have
a talk with you about the south. There was no
assistance for the south after the civil war for
rebuilding it...just thieves roving the area. Hurri-
cane Katrina showed no mercy on some of those
folks and many are still in danger. Hope this is a
lesson for us in the Gulf Coast area...but what are
our options? I was told last year I could go up to
the state hospital for shelter. I don't know about


are not quite so lucky. They have no homes
and no jobs to go back to, and for some of
them the money for hotel rooms is running
out.
People throughout the nation have been
supportive. Gadsden County residents have
reached into their pockets to give cash.dona-
tions to help the evacuees. Churches have
made special provisions to help individually
or as groups. The school children have been
collecting quarters for a week to help other
children. The need is so great and so long-
term that there will be enough for all of us
to do to help 'and for a very long time.
The recipients are grateful for the out-
pouring of help. It is really gratifying. It is
too bad that it took such a tragedy to bring
people together to help others. People need:
money, they need clothes, personal items
and the list goes on. I hope that people who
donate clothes don't take this as an opportu-
nity to clean their closet of unwanted junk.'
These people are already at the lowest point
in, their lives, they surley ought not be made
to feel as if all they are worth is castoffs.
They need help, but they don't need
clothes given to them that you wouldn't
wear or food donated that you wouldn't eat.
When deciding what to give, put yourself in
their shoes.


that...hospital hallway.. .whatever. I hope we will
'be prepared around here because it looks like they
are going to keep coming.

Supports school uniforms

Dear Editor.

On the first day of school, I went to visit my
daughter's 3rd grade class at Gretna Elementary
School When I walked onto the campus, an abrupt
feeling of enthusiasm came over me. To see the
faculty,'. staff, and most of all, the students in their
bright school colors was-indeed a delight! "At
last," I thought, "something positive."
When I heard that Supt. James was promoting
school uniforms for the elementary and middle
schools this year, I thought, "it's about time." Uni-
forms, in my opinion, give the school a feeling of
self-esteem, unity, and security.
The students at Gretna Elementary were proud to
show off their royal blue, gold, and white shirts
with their navy blue, khaki, and black pants.
Supt. James, I have high regard for you and the
Gadsden County School Board members for tak-
ing this positive step for Gadsden County's stu-
dents. As a parent and former Gadsden County
school student and employee, I know how it feels
to the students who can't wear.the FUBU, Hilfiger,
Sean Jean, and Phat Farm logos. When their
friends are wearing clothes that they can't. But
how, everyone can be together!
I am very thrilled about this step in the right
direction, and I support Supt. James and the school
board members 1000%. I am also very satisfied
with having my child in the Gadsden County
school system. I genuinely feel that we are on our
way to higher heights. And I have faith in my heart
that our students WILL do extremely well because
-they can feel better about themselves because they
look good.
Agaiin, I say hats off to Gadsden County Schools!
God bless you Sept. James, your staff, the school
board members, all the teachers and administra-
tors, and the students!

Reverend Willie C. Fagg


With hurricane Katrina we have experi-
enced another one of those historic
moments that will long be remembered.
It will be remembered in a lot of ways,,
too.
We will all remember the devastation
that was thrust upon the Gulf Coast, espe-
cially New Orleans. It will be another one
of those times, especially for those of us
who live in hurricane prone areas, to
remember waiting those three or four days
to see which direction Katrina would take.
I'm sure that as the storm shifted away
from our area, most of us were grateful
that it had chosen another path. It would
not be until we saw the destruction that
we would realize just how lucky we had
been.
Little did we know how much destruc-
tion Katrina would rain down on its vic-
tims. We've all seen the graphic pictures
of Katrina's aftermath and it is something
that I never thought would happen on our
shores, but it did.
What followed the destruction for me
personally was just as heart wrenching. To
Ssee,-all of the people whose lives had been
so altered forever by such a storm.
Many of Katrina's victims do not have a
home. The very essentials of life like food
and water, that we all take for granted',
have become the most important thing in
their lives. Most don't have jobs and will
not for an extended length of time,
because their places of employment are no
longer there.',
Their lives changed forever in one 24-
hour period of time.
Some will say, why did it happen?
I do not know %why it happened. It was a
force of nature we don't fully understand

fear.
There have always been the soothsayers
that will tell you that it was God's wrath
that caused it.
I personally don't believe that.
I'm not going to argue the point, but if
Lot had the opportunity to find ten good
souls to save Sodom and Gomorrah then
you would think God would have given
the Gulf Coast the same deal. And I know


Thanks to Gadsden County

Dear Editor,

To the people of Gadsden County I would like
to say thank you for your outstanding support of
the W. A. Woodham Memorial Scholarship drive.
It speaks volumes that more than 450 of you from
all areas of the county and all walks of life turned
out for, the August 26 dinner to pay respect to
your former sheriff and friend. The scholarship
drive was an overwhelming financial success
because Gadsden County as an entire commu-
nity came together so strongly.
During his lifetime W. A. helped thousands of
people. Now, you've responded by making
possible a scholarship bearing his name that will
help young people further their education for
years and years to come.

It was a pleasure to work with all of you who
were involved in the event. I would especially
like to thank Charles and Barbara McClellan,
David and Doreen Gardner, Walt and Carol
Dover, and James Harold and Carolyn Thompson
for their leadership. The driving force for the
whole effort was the "100 Friends ofW. A. Wood-
ham," with coordination by the 10 team captains
from throughout the county.


for a fact there are some good people that
live in that area, because I've met them.
But, there is a lesson or parable of
sorts that has come from this tragedy.
It is a hard lesson to learn, especially in
our day and time when material things
have become so important. In an instant,
as Katrina's victims can attest, you can
lose everything.' No longer is the car
or house or social status important.
The most important thing in your life
becomes your family, friends and hope-
fully your faith in God.
People are resilient and will bounce
back. They may be victims now, but they
will pull through this, just like the Ameri-
can people have always faced and beaten
tragedy. There is already talk of
building back.That is another lesson, how
the American spirit will overcome this
adversity.
There are, as you read this, thousands
of volunteers from all across the country
already on the scene of the destruction .
helping those in need. We have dozens
from Gadsden County alone that have
taken time from their jobs to go and cut
limbs and feed Katrina's victims.
Others are making up "Care" packages
of essentials and collecting money for the
victims. Others are taking in some of the
refugees. Everybody feels like they want
to help in some way.
People last Friday gave what they could
at a fund raiser on the court house square.
All the pennies, dimes, quarters, and dol-
lars added up. Thousand of dollars have
already been raised in this county alone, -
not counting the money being raised all
across this great country. And volun-
teers and money will go on and on and on
as long as it takes, because that is the way
we do things in this country.
I think that is where God fits into all of
this.
It is a simple rule you know, "and as ye
would that men should do to you, do ye
also to them likewise."
I'll leave the theology to the theolo-
gians, and just say thank you Gadsden
County for your help for the victims of
Katrina.


We are indebted to everyone for a job well

done.

Frankly, Gretna needs to be cleaned up


by BYRON SPIRES
Times Staff Writer
Mayor Helen Franks is ready to
clean the City of Gretna up.
"Gretna is looking bad,"
Franks said Tuesday night.
Franks said that the abandoned
properties and even some where
people lived were driving prop-
erty values in the city' down.
She said that it was not fair to
those that worked so hard to keep
their property clean and their
neighbors did not. Fran k s
wants the city to start sending out
letters to property owners that
were allowing their property to


become overgrown and in disre-
pair.
The city commissioners passed
a nuisance ordinance several
months ago to deal with the
unsightly property.
When asked about what to use as
a guideline to send the letters out,
public works director Charles
Hayes said that it wasn't just one
car here and there but a city wide
problem. Hayes said that
there were abandoned houses that
people are hiding in at night as
well as overgrown empty lots and
even homes where' the utilities
have been cut off and residents are
still living in the house.


City attorney Harold Knowles
said the ordinance was now in
place and that to begin the process
the commission would need to act
as the city's code enforcement
board and decide which property
owners would be sent letters first.
The process he said was not sim-
ple. It would require that the city
start a systematic process to get
the properties clean.
After the letter was sent he said
the property owner would need
time to respond. After an adequate
amount of time if the owner did
not respond the city could clean
the property and charge the owner.
If they did not pay the city could


put a lien on the property.
Franks said she did not want
cleaning up Gretna to become a
political issue. "If they have a
problem, they need to fix it,"
Franks said.
In other business:
* Commissioner David Sailor,
who has been a proponent of low-
ering water and sewer rates, asked
for a comparison on what it would
cost the city to raise the minimum
sewer usage to 5000 gallons a
month compare to the city's pres-
ent 3000 gallon minimum. Cur-
rently Gretna is having problems
with some of its residents not pay-
ing their water and sewer bills.
Sailor said he thought one reason
was -the high cost of sewer and
water rates in Gretna.
* Interim city manager Diane For-
mman told commissioners that
Gretna could be in line for FEMA
money for damages caused by the
last two local hurricanes.
* Financial consultant Bill Bogan
told commissioners that the city's
2002-2003 delinquent audit will
be completed by the October
deadline. In addition he said the
2003-2004 audit would be done
by the end of February 2006. One
of the problems with completing
the audits, Bogan said, was the
city's accounting software, which
he said was in the process of being
corrected.
* The commission will meet in a
special called meeting on Septem-
ber 13, to vote on this year's final
budget. In addition Sailor asked
that the remaining applicants be
reviewed for police chief at that
meeting. He wants the position to
be filled in the 2005-2006 budget
year.

Why did this


happen to me?
by Paul F. Joyner, Ph.D.
This i a question that has been
around siice time began. "What did I
do to deserve this?" "Why did God do,
this to me?" "Why did this have to
happen to me?"
I remember some years ago, a friend
and his wife were driving in the early
evening, and ran into the back of a
truck. The wife was thrown through
the windshield and her face was cut
severely. The doctors did plastic sur-
gery and the injury was barely
detectable. But she could tell some dif-
ference in her appearance. She would
stand before the mirror and exclaim,
"Why did this have to happen to me?"
There was no appreciation for being
alive, having the ability to walk and to
eat and to see, etc..But thus i'_ the way
we are isn't it? "Why me, Lord?"
You may be sure that God is not
responsible for your troubles and you
can be equally sure that God will show
you how to face them. We need to face
the fact that when people ask questions
such as these they are essentially self-
ish. You lose a loved one and
ask,"Why did' this have to happen?"
What you are really saying is, "Why
did this have to happen to ME? What
have I done to deserve this loss."
Why waste time and mental energy in
worrying about why? Speculation will
get you no place. The important thing
is WHAT shall I do about it? And to
this question, God has an answer. Are
you discouraged about life? Find
something to be enthusiastic about.
Are you afraid for the future? Go with
God and face it. Troubled by personal
loss? Look away from yourself to God
and let him 'calm the troubled waters'
of your life. Are you faced with closed
doors? Christ is at the door let him
open it for you.
If you have a reason for living, you
will never ask: "Why did this happen
to me?" Let faith take the place of fear,
place your hand in God's hand and
start walking with Him.
I invite you to visit The Berean
Church located south of the old high
school building in Chattahoochee, FL.
You may reach Dr. Joyner at 850-674-
2633.

It's Time for a Change
Lord we just want to thank you for grace and mercy. Your ways are past
finding out. Sometimes we wonder why but only God knows what the
future holds and we know who holds the future. God is still in control
through all the damages, and lost lives that's gone on. We still have a
chance. God is a God of love. It's time for a change. Let us
acknowledge him. Lord help us to press on in spite of it all. As surely as
the sun rises he will appear. Hosea 6:3 NNV. St. Luke 13 asks a question:
Do you think those Gallileans were sinners more so because the tower tfeL on them? I tell
you nay, but except ye all repent we too will be lost. It is not who is what, it is God's love
and mercy even we were spared that time, today can be our time. It doesn't have to be a
storm nor an accident but we too are traveling on a journey. We don't know when or where
but we will reach our destination. The choice is ours. Where will we spend eternity? It may
seem like midnight now for some but the sun is still shining behind the darkest cloud. Lord
help the homeless who lack this night a roof for shelter, a couch for sleep. God you own
the world. Please provide. The psalmist says the earth is the Lord's, and the fullness thereof.
The world and they that dwell therein. Maybe we can't go or send help as we desire but we
can pray to the Father who is already there. Maybe the dome leaked but as David said, Jesus
is a shelter in the time of a storm. It's time for a national revival. We can submit and present
our whole heart, soul, mind and strength right where we are. It's time to take more time out
for prayer and consecration, united not only in time of trouble or disaster but St. Matt. 18:19
reads, Where two or three are gathered together in my name I am there to bless the needy.
Whatever the situation. Let us cry out to God for mercy for the whole world. The only
safety zone is in Jesus. Lord help us to get closer to you and focus on your work with
obedience. Pray not only for me but for us all. Sin is the problem for the whole world. Christ
is the answer. It may seem like all hope is gone. Let us take courage, Jesus is always present.
Thank you, Jesus,
Evangelist Florence M. Bradwell

Cost cutting tips to

survive gas prices
Recent gasoline prices in Gads-
den County reached $3.00 a gallon
for regular unleaded this week the
Highest price on record. That's an
increase of over 60 percent from
this time last year when gas cost
$1.79/gallon.
At the neo\ price, it now costs an
average commuter, traveling a total
of 30 miles a day, $2,818.05 a year
.just to travel to and from work. If
that same commuter decided to car-
pool only once a week, they would
save $422.17!
The United States.Department of
Energy predicts little or :no price
relief in the near future. So,, what
.can commuters do? Here are some
options that can dramatically reduce
the financial impacts of fuel costs
today and in the future:
Share a ride! Carpooling and
vanpooling, even if just once or
twice a week,, can dramatically
reduce commuting costs. There are
also the added benefits of reduced
traffic congestion and improved air
quality. If you don't already have a
co-worker or neighbor with whom
to share a ride, Commuter Services
of North Florida provides a free
ridematching program to connect
you with other commuters.
Beneficial for Employers. As of
2005, employers can allocate under
Section 132 (f) of the tax code up to
$105 in pre-tax contributions for
vanpool and transit costs.
Telework. If your job responsibil-
ities' allow, why not work at home a
few days a. week. Employers can
save $7,920 in retention/recruitment
cost per teleworker. It can also
increase productivity by 20%,
resulting in a net gain of $1,850 per
teleworker.
Chain your trips. Combining your
errands into one trip saves time and
helps reduce traffic congestion and
pollution. A car that has been sitting
for more than an hour gets worse
gas mileage and pollutes more than
when the engine's warm.
Care for your car. Changing the
oil and checking tire inflation
improves gas mileage, extends your
car's life and increases its resale
value.

Chattahoochee hits


paydirt with check


for successful year


Robert Lewis(principal), Reginald C. James (Superintendent), Mary Jane Tappen (Department of Education Deputy Chancellor) and Isaac Simmons
(School Board member) display a poster-sized replica of the nearly $25,000 check Chattahoochee Elementary School recently received from the state.


On Wednesday, Aug. 31 the staff
and students of Chattahoochee Ele-
mentary School were congratulated
on their phenomenal success in the
previous school year.
The school, which scored an "F"
in the '03 and '04 school years, pro-
gressed to a "C" in the 2005 school
year and was only a few points shy
of an "B".'
Florida Department of Education
officials \"%ere on hand to present a
check for more than $24,000 to the
school for its outstanding perform-
ance.
On the FCAT in 2005 an astound-
ing 51% made gains in reading.
Among the lowest 25% a remark-


able 57% were able to make
progress. Math scores were also'
impressive with 47% meeting high-
standards in math and a total of 63%
making gains in math overall.
Superintendent Reginald James
remarked that he is so proud of the
success of the students, staff, and
administrators.
"Chattahoochee Elementary is a
prime example that hard work and'
dedication can lead to amazing suc-
cess. Their success is a shining
example of what can be done when
the parents, staff and community are
all involved."

Teaching with pb&j
What does peanut butter and jelly have to do with math? According to
Rhonda McEwen of HMS, a lot. She uses P B and J to teach how an "A"
tastes. Mrs. McEwen says the class has to use all five senses to achieve an
"A". She also said she wants.her class to savor the sweet taste of success.
The class drew the "A", tasted the "A", felt the "A" and even imagined what
an "A" sounds like. Mrs. McEwen says she likes to use all five senses to get
her point across. The classroom and the hallway are richly deco rated with
"A's." Mrs. McEwen's class is taking the school's motto to the extreme,
"Aiming for the 'A'." The picture shows two of our inquisitive grizzles,
Sara Collins and Tyrone Johnson, about to partake of a pb&j sandwich.

innovative. I'm not interested in the
project unless there is the sewer. This
could be a benefit to all other areas
in the county that are a long way
from Quincy," commented Com-
missioner Sterling Watson.
Bob Burnham, who lives near the
lake and says he likes to fish,
opposed the project because of what
he fears it will do to the water in the
lake. "I like to catch fish out of the
water at the lake and eat them and
not have to worry about them mak-
ing me sick," he said.
Burnham said he isn't a plumber
but he knows'that the property is on
the hill and that poop runs downhill.
Another neighbor, Richard Sprin-
kle warned the commissioners that
allowing, that much development
(360 plus acres) is a very drastic
change in the land use plan. "Once
we start on this slippery slope we
can't go back," he said, adding, "the
high density would be okay if we
were high and dry, but this is wet-
lands."
Commissioners voted to table the
request until more information on
the waste water treatment plant is
available and more information on
Talquin's role is clear.
In other matters, commisisoners
voted on an ordinance that will
allow for the establishment of appli-
cation, design, and review proce-
dures for the county and developers
to follow when locating and con-
structing or erecting power lines not
subject to those already under state
statutes. The ordinance amends the
Environmental Chapter of Code,
Lynn Poucher opposed the
Progress Energey powerlines com-
ing through Greensboro and ,near
her home. She said the community
is not experiencing the kind of
growth that requires more power.
"Lake Talquin in booming, let them
put it at Lake Talquin,"'she said.
Poucher said she is not against
n grwoth, but that she's against it
ruining her home.
n "Money and the interest of people
are not always the same thing. You

It's (along the railroad right of way)
f to put the (power) lines. They want
s to put it along the railroad tracks so
it'won't have to be regulated," said
t Bill Hoatson.
Richard Matthews commended
s the board's decision. "The amend-
ments are fine with us. It's an hon-
orable thing you're doing," he said.
g In another matter, commissioners
voted to oust Pat Thomas & Associ-
ates Insurance Company as the
D county's carrier in favor of Public
g Risk Insurance Agency'(PRIA).
n Watson said he favored keeping the
t local insurance agency.
"I do not wish to vote for
e PatThomas. If the courthouse blew
t down we would get the appraised
value which is nothing. PRIA
t, would give us the replacement
a value. I'm glad we put it out for bid,
we've saved the citizens $25,000
e just by doing that," Dixon said.
Watson said the county should
l never have accepted PRIAs bid
because it did not meet the specifi-
cations.

Leaf to host evening of
African, gospel music
and dance Friday

Music has long been recognized as a com-
mon bridge between peoples of all cultures
around the world. Communities such as
Quincy and Havana are actively involved in
multi-cultural events which include world
music.
Tawainga Katsvairo, a native of Zimbab-
we, Africa, who is also a music composer,
and Mary Bush Smith, a highly talented
gospel singer, envisioned an evening of
African and gospel music in February 2005
and now bring the idea to reality.
That special evening will be Friday, Sept.
16, at 7 p.m: at the Leaf Theater in Quincy.
The benefits of getting communities inter-,
ested in music of other cultures are numer-
ous. For example, because music is such a
powerful art and a reflection of society and
culture, exposure to African music helps to
increase awareness of Africa and its culture.
Quincy has many choirs and singers. In
fact. Tawainga believes that small towns
have the highest percentage of the popula-
tion which sings in choral groups. Most
churches have up to three 'choirs (men,
women, youth and combined).
There are also many secular choirs and
professional choirs. Choral singing is there-
fore one of the main entertainment events,
so presenting African music through choral
singing fits well for the local setting.


Performances for the evening will include
people from the greater Tallahassee region.
Singers from various local choirs have been
chosen to represent a wide spectrum of the
community. This active local participation is
intended to help people better appreciate the
music, and realize they can sing foreign mu-
sic.
The Shining Stars, a Quincy-based profes-
sional group of gospel singers, will also per-
form. They are renowned for their tradition-
al gospel singing and their flashy appear-
ance, and have appeared in many gospel
programs during their 25 years together.
Local dancers with varying dance back-
grounds including ballroom, jazz and hip-
hop, and non-dancers come together to per-
form dances from South Africa. A profes-
sional dance troupe will bring West African
dances.
There will also be several door prizes and
a raffle featuring products donated by area
businesses. Door prize tickets are free. Raf-
fle tickets are $1 each. All items including
a color TV will be on display at The Leaf
Theater. Tickets for the concert are: $10 for
adults, $7.50 for college students with ID
arid $5 for youth, and can be purchased at
Brown Variety Shop, the House of Music
and Golden Girls in Quincy, and Music
Masters and KopyKat Copy Center in Talla-
hassee. Tickets will also be available at the
door. Group discounts are available by con-
tacting pro-associates@excite.com, or by
phone at 850-544-0717.
For those of you visiting Quincy for the


first time, come a little early to tour t1.
Quincy Historic District. Some of the most
beautiful houses are in Quincy; remember'
once upon a time Quincy had the highest
number of millionaires per capital in the erin'

District and is handicapped-accessible

Cat defense stymies


Panama City Christian


Dontavius Johnson cracked in from the 9 yard line with 30 seconds left
to give Munroe a 12-6 win over Panama City Christian In the Bay County
city Friday night.
The win was first year coach Jeff Schaum's first at the Mt. Pleasant
school. It also gave the Bobcats a Panhandle Football Conference win in.
their first conference competition.
Johnson's touchdown capped a gutsy late drive by the Bobcats that cov-
ered 74 yards. Munroe begin that drive with just 1:48 left after the defense
had held off a threat by PCC to take the lead.
Runs of 25 yards by Johnson and 25 by Joseph Hackney led the late drive
that helped Munroe even their season at 1-1.
The Cats had scored first in the game when Johnson got in from 4 yards
out in the first quarter. PCC answered back knotting the game up before the
first quarter ended.
That's when the defense went to work.
Led by Jason Cook, Bryant Tolar, Steve Phillips Johnson and Matthew
McPherson the Munroe defense held the Crusaders to just 165 yards of
offense.
Cook was in on 10 tackles and had 3 sacks plus 2 tackles for losses. The
sophomore defensive end also recovered a fumble and forced 2 more mis-
cues.
Tolar was in on 11 stops and Phillips had 9 tackles and a fumble recov-
ery. Johnson was in on 7 tackles as was McPherson who also had 2 tackles
for losses.
Hackney and Todd Rowan were in on 6 tackles each and Rowan had- a
tackle for a loss. Colby Tyus added a sack for the Bobcats.
"I felt we lined up and played well." Said Schaum' who coached Jeffer-
son county to a play-off spot last year before coming to Munroe. "We could
have scored a few more times but we shot ourself in the foot." "But we did-
n't fold the tent as the defense hung in there and gave us a chance to win."
Munroe will try to get another win when they' host Carrabelle Friday
night at Corry Field. The Panthers will be another conference foe as well
as Munroes' first district foe this year.
Carrabelle brings a 0-1 record to the game. The Panthers lost a tough 24-
20 game to Apalachicola last Friday night.

nailed Travis Simmons with an 18
yard scoring pass before the quarter
ended making it 27-10.
The teams swapped scores in the
last frame. Jackson ran 7 and 55
yards for touchdowns, Betsey
passed to Ricky Gennie for a two
point conversion and Russ kicked
another extra point giving East
Gadsden 15 last quarter points.
Jon Farrell had a 9 yard scoring
run and Brandon Sampson scooted
41 yards for a touchdown to
account for the Baby rattler fourth

"It sure was good to get a win."
Jaguar head coach Rodell Thomas
whewed. "Maybe the taste of vic-
tory will help us work harder, prac-

victories better."
The Baby rattlers late scores
were against the Jaguars younger
defenders. Gerrord Russ had lead
the starting defense with 2 pass
break ups and several tackles at the
scrimmage line coming up from his
safety position.

Strangers ease the



'Road trip from Hell'


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

It seemed like it took forever to get from New Orleans
to Havana. The Dabney family arrived Monday, all four
carloads. Vincent and Claudette Dabney, their married
children and grandchildren were very safe Friday night
as they sat in the yard of Lawrence Pillers. "I begged
them to come. I begged and begged," said Pillers, whose
daughter Ashaki Lane, is married to one of the Dabney's
sons, Derrick.
,: The caravan left New-Orleai miarmtt noon Sunday.
Their plan was to go to Jackson, Mississippi, get a hotel
room and wait until the storm passed. They would, they
thought, drive back home to New Orleans and resume
life as they knew it. They knew things weren't going
well when it took 11 hours to drive to Jackson, a trip that
normally takes five hours. The family, was able to find
accommodations at a hotel and then, the lights went out.
That, in itself, was not so bad.
But when you consider that Ashaki suffers fiom
asthma as well as three-year-old Trejuan Dabney, no
electricity becomes a matter of life and death. Both
require the use of a special machine and special med-
ication to help clear their lungs. "When the lights went
out, we knew we had to leave because slhe needed to be
on the machine about every two hours," said the child's
mother Vinetta Dabney.
The family set out again, this time headed for Gads-
den County at the urging of Pillers. With gas scarce and
trees down throughout parts of Mississippi, Alabama
and west Florida, the decision was made to leave Jack-
son and drive across north Alabama, then south through
Georgia to Havana. "It-was the road trip from hell,"
recalled Vinetta.
Along the way, the family met many kind strangers
including the manager of a Burger King restaurant in
Groveland, Alabama. "The baby need to get on -the
machine. The manager allowed us to use their electric-
ity for the machine," she said.
The family, expecting to go back home soon, had been

check on their homes. Vinson knew that the hydraulics
company he worked for was probably gone from watch-
ing television reports. His son, who cooks at the Bulldog
Bar and Grill on Canal Street and is a fulltime culinary
student, speculated that both the school and restaurant
are gone.
Like most of the evacuees, they only packed enough
clothing and supplies for three days. The people of
Havana have welcomed them with open arms, by giving
the families food, clothing and cash. Just what they plan
to do next will become a family decision in the days to
come as the water subsides. They appreciate the hospi-
tality, but they just want to go home. And Vinetta had
one more request: "If you write about us in the newspa-
per, please don't call us refugees," she said.


Kids N Quarters

ready when I get back'," she said
pointing to her husband. She is glad
they did. Normally, people are
advised to go west if a storm is
pending. Jeneen said she dreaded
the long lines of traffic on Interstate
10 headed to Texas. She alsb
dreaded hearing the noise four kids
can make after being cooped up in a
car for hours and stalled on the high-
way. The Williams family and ten
other family members, including his
sister and her family, and Jeneen's
parents, are in Gretna living with
Jewel and Joshua Williams.
Last Friday night, August 27, the
Williams kept one eye on the
weather and the other on their fam-
ily. The couple had tickets to the
New Orleans Saints football game
Friday night but decided not to go
since Jeneen's father had undergone
a serious surgery Thursday. Satur-
day morning they attended the
funeral of one of Joshua's co-work-
ers.
It was around noon that Joshua
noticed Katrina was projected to be
a category five when it hit near New
Orleans. "Last year they made a
pretty big deal out of what would
happen if a category five hit us.
There was a lot of hurricane pre-
paredness. They even had computer
generated models showing people
what to expect, all over the televi-
sion." The Williams' paid attention.
Jeneen packed hurredly. "I packed
light because I was just so sure we
would be coming back in two or
three days. A couple of pairs of


jeans, and shirts for me and the kids.
The stuff I normally pack when we
evacuate. I kept telling Josh that I
really didn't think we should leave.
I nagged him all the way over here,"
she said. He kept telling her that
"we're going".
Travelling to Quincy Saturday
afternoon was smooth. "The sky
was blue and everything was beauti-
ful. The traffic was light and we
could get all of the gas we needed.
Josh was tired so I insisted we stop
in Pensacola and spend the night.
We had no trouble getting a hotel
room, either," Jeneen said.
They kept in touch with friends by


cell phone Sun-
day.. "I talked to
my best friend
and they were
stuck on Inter-
state 10 headed
west to Texas.
He said they had
been standing
still. for over an


my mother finally got through to us
Thursday and said they were evacu-
ating people to Louisiana State Uni-
versity Hospital in Baton Rouge if
they had some place to go, others
were being sent to the Astrodome in
Houston," Jeneen said.
Jewel and Joshua Williams told
their son and daughter-in-law to go
to Baton Rouge to get the couple.
There was one more bedroom in the
six bedroom house that Jeneen's
parents were welcome to occupy for
as long as they wanted to stay.
The trip to Baton Rouge was made
a lot easier by one of Joshua's
cousins who happens to be a Florida
Highway Patrol officer dispatched
to Mississippi. "Getting there was a
breeze because he was able to tell us
what roads were open and'where the
detours were located." Getting back
would prove to be a 12-hour ordeal.
"We had to take a lot of back roads
and there were a lot of trees
downed," he said.

hour. The interstate was like a park-
ing lot," Josh was told.
When the storm hit, Jeneen's
father was recuperating at Ochsner
Hospital. A native of New Orleans,
she worried not only about her par-
ents, but their members of her family
and friends. "I knew all of these
people. I went to the same- high
school as the Mayor. Many of these
people were people that I grew up
with," she said.
Joshua graduated from Dillard
University in New Orleans and
stayed in the city to work at the uni-
versity and in city government as a
technology expert before becoming
Director of Technology for the New
Orleans YMCA. He has many
friends and associates throughout
the city. New Orleans has become
his home, too.
The images on television upset the
family but the condition of her
father was most troubling. "They
were evacuating hospitals. When


They are all safe.
No one knows yet to
what extent their
property has been
damaged. Their lives
have been put on hold
and things are uncer-
tain. "It's a weird
feeling," is the way
Jeneen describes


being in limbo and away from all
that is familiar. The outpouring of
support has been overhwelming and
the family appreciates it.
The Williams children, Fletcher,
16, Jada, 6, and Jasmine, 5, are in
school. Three-year-old Joshua II is
at home with his paternal grand-
mother. Joshua said School Superin-
tendent Reginald James and staff
wasted no time getting the children
enrolled in school. By Tuesday all
of the children were in school in uni-
form. Jeneen said the girls love their
school and can't stop talking about
it. Joshua is looking for a job; and
Jeneen has been able to enroll at
Lively Vocational School. When the
storm hit, she was two months away
from receiving a License Practical
Nurse certificate.
The family will probably go back
home, but for now they say they will
deal with what cards they have been
dealt. The main thing, they agree, is
the family is together and safe.






22 Gadsden County Times September 8, 2005


Dear Gadsden, Liberty & Calhoun
County Residents,
Two years ago ( 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.
