the good news is that student enroll-

But even as fewer students leave

other areas such as diesel fuel must

Stewart St. bridge


closer to repairs


by BYRON Spires
Times Staff Writer
The Stewart Street Bridge is inch-
ing closer to being completed.
Mayor Sherrie Taylor asked city
staff what the city was going to do
about the bridge "now".
General services director Antonio
Jefferson responded to Taylor's
inquiry saying that bids for the con-
struction plan were closing on Sep-
tember 30. Once the bids were
opened the city could choose a con-
tractor and start the repair. Accord-
ing to Jefferson, he and Gadsden
!County's public works director had
met and the county had committed


to help the city with some of the
work.
When asked about the funding of
the project Jefferson said he had
been in contact with officials at
FEMA and they had received the
city's application. In addition, Jef-
ferson said, he had been in contact
with Senator Bill Nelson's office
about the .city's plight with the
bridge. Jefferson said that he was
informed after talking with Nelson
/that the city has received prelimi-
nary approval for the funding, but
the request still has to pass the final
critique of FEMA.

Deer Ridge drainage issue comes to a head at Tuesday's hearing


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

This Tuesday at 6 p.m. the Gads-
den County Board of County Com-
missioners will hold a hearing to
hear evidence on whether or not the
*the developers of Deer Ridge Subdi-
vision support or deny they violated
the county's construction site and
drainage policies.
For several months, residents of
"the subdivision off U.S. 27 just
south of the Havana city limits -
have complained to commissioners
that the developer has not provided
:proper drainage. In their complaints,
::they allege that they cannot get any
cooperation from the developer to
ifix the problems.
S"The Gadsden County Growth
.,Management Department has
.received and continues to receive
:numerous complaints about erosion
:and construction site maintenance at
:(Deer Ridge). The complaints have
.resulted in on-site meetings and oth-
.,er conversations between represen-
4tatives of the developers and others
,involved in development, construc-
:tion and marketing of the properties
.in efforts to resolve the number of
.violations of county land develop-
.'ment regulations that are occurring
,on the site," wrote the county's
*.growth management director, Bill
-McCord.
% The first time county staff went to
%the site was March 29 of this year..
'At the time, McCord said, the staff
.discovered "many" construction
:practice irregularities and violations
'::of the county's land development
:code, storm water management pol-
icy and procedures manual, compre-
*hensive plan requirements and the
approved construction drawings for
the subdivision.
"The construction within the sub-
division and on individual lots has
and continues to result in severe ero-
sion from individual lots and the
right-of-way, and creates an adverse
impact on a creek that drains
through the subdivision," McCord
said.
Recently silt screens have been
erected in the subdivision. However,
that does not alleviate the damage to
roadway pavement that as been
caused by the earlier erosion.
McCord also wrote that cuts and
gouges caused by heavy equipment
and by cutting the pavement for
placement of an unauthorized cross
drain has occurred.
County staff met with Home Place,
Inc. (the developers) representative
Dan McClellan in April. McCord
said he requested that McClellan
submit a corrective action plan by
May 9.

Drainage pipes providing for

Drain pipes within the right-of-

And, according to McCord's letter,
there are still more problems. He
cites several areas of non-compli-

1. The site has not been construct-
ed according to the approved con-
struction plans for the subdivision.
2. The pavement has been cut and
a drainage relief pipe has been
installed within the road south of lot
20.
3. All lots that have experienced
erosion must be restored/re-graded
to the plan approved contours.
4. Erosion control notes and silt

on the Details Sheet are not being
followed.

Serious about safety
The Quincy Police Department continues to hold driver check points. Above officers check for current
license, insurance and that vehicles are road worthy. In the picture insert, window tinting is checked. Any
tinting that falls below 28 percent on the light sensing gauge is in violation of Florida law. This window was
at 2.9 percent and the driver received a citation. This past week 176 drivers were stopped on King Street
between Ninth and Stewart Streets, of those 18 were issued citations. On Shadow Street 104 vehicles were
stopped and 12 received citations with one arrest. On South Adams Street, 211 vehicles were stopped with
12 receiving citations.

Quincy workshop looks at noise levels


by BYRON SPIRES
Times Staff Writer

How loud is too loud? that
is the question Quincy com-
missioners were discussing
in Tuesday afternoon's work-
shop.
The city is considering an
ordinance to limit the amount
of noise that can emit from
cars, homes and businesses.
City attorney Jack McLean
explained to the commission
that in order to have teeth in
the ordinance it needs to
have guidelines.
Sound, he said. is measured,
in decibels, and anything
above 70 decibels is conisid-
ered annoying. A club or a
restaurant in a commercial
area, he said, could emit 70
decibels, but in a residential
area it should be limited to
the 60-65 decibel range.
Not allowing noise over' ""
those limits would make
Quincy, "a pretty quiet city."
McLean added that time
limits should be in the ordi-
nance that would not let
businesses emit loud noises
between the hours of 10,p.m.
and 7 a.m.
There was some concern
over the ordinance affecting
already existing businesses
that emit a lot of noise, espe-
cially as trucks enter and
leave their premises. Some
businesses, Commissioner
Finley Cook said, ran-24
hours a dav. His conceih was
that the ordinance not drive
any of those businesses out
of town. "The\ bring in a lot
of revenue.'" Cook said.
.Commissioner Derrick
Elias said he felt the ordi-.. .
nance \\as too complicated.
He v anted the police depart-
ment to go out and ask resi-
dents to turn down their
music.
Police Chief Gerald
McSwain said that his
department responded to
calls concerning loud noises,
but had no way to enforce'
someone turning down their
music. With an ordinance: ,
and a decimeter (device used
to measure sound) McSwain
said his officers had a gauge
to determine just how loud
the sounds were. "The
ordinance will assist us, we


need that," McSwain said.
The commissioners decided
to let the city's code enforce-
ment board look at the ordi-
nance and bring back its rec-
ommendations.
In other business the com-
missimners heard from Archi-
tects Design Group, Inc.
about plans for a new police
department building and
location. Keith Reeves
from ADG gave the com-
missioners some facts con-

cerning building a certified
police department. The firm
has been building police
departments for the past 35
years.
Reeves said that the current
market was driving the price
of building up. It how costs
about $190 a square foot to
build a police department he
said. Reeves gave the comi-
,missioners several locations
-around Quincy as possible
sites for the police depart- .
ment. They include the
block at the corner of Adams
and Crawford ( where the old
jail sat) which is owned by
the county, property owned
by the city on Pat Thomas at
Laura Street, Ward's lot, and
V Martin Luther King Blvd in
front of where the walking
track is located.
There choice had
beenn the MLK location
which the city owns. That
location has 3.5 acres of land
and ample space, Reeves
said, to build a police depart-
ment, and plenty of parking.

The city would need a

to meet the 2015 growth
potential. The total cost was
estimated at $4.8 million.
Ree\es said that their recom-
mendations were only pre-
liminary and that other
options would be considered.
Elias wanted Reeves to'
also include property at the
city's business park on Joe
Adams road as part of their
survey. Reeves said he would
be back at the September 27
meeting for a formal presen-
tation to the commissioners.

It was just a dream


Today is my birthday.
For the first time in years,
I have not planned a party for
myself nor have I splurged to
buy myself a gift. This year,
since Hurricane Katrina, I
have been thinking of others
and what I could do for them.
I have been in a more thank-
ful frame of mind because
but for the grace of God and
the storm angling to the left
rather than to the right, it
could have been many of us
homeless and without many
of the day-to-day things we
all take for granted.
When I. open the refrigera-
tor, there is cold water and
juice and food. When I turn
on the water, I get hot and
cold and it's'clean. When I
flick the switch, I get lights
and cable and the computer.
And when I think of the
thousands of people to our
x% est who don't have the
basic needs, I shudder to
think how many of us would
handle'it well.
Birthdays are milestones'
and I am a firm believer that


Thanks everyone


Dear Editor,

There is nothing like growing up,
in Gadsden County. Many of us.
grew up working in tobacco, fish-
ing on Lake Talquin and gener-
ally .just pla ing in the woods.
SSome of my fa\ orite childhood
memones include catching cra%\-
dads in the pond and branch that
ran through my Mama and
Daddy's property and ,sliding
down the clay hill in front of my
Granddaddy's house. It was so
glad when Lamar and I decided to
move back. Dawn and Mark
Lake moved back for the same
reason, to allow our boys to grow
up in a rural area and just be
boys.
How many of us remember our
Mama's warning to watch out for
shakes as we slammed the
screened door on our way out to
play; the same warning that
Dawn gave to Stirling and Alex
as they left to go fishing. I write
this not to rehash the day of July.

how lives can be turned
upside down in a matter of

On August 14 when hun-
dreds of people in the
affected areas celebrated
their birthdays, they had no
inkling that in one month
their lives would be forever
changed. As many celebrated
over -dinner with family or
parties with friends, the
birthday was a happy occa-

Birthday celebrations are
unimportant when your home
is no longer standing and
when you're wondering how
you're going to make a living
because your place of
employment no longer exists.
Since Katrina came ashore-
two weeks ago, thousands
have had birthdays but few
have been celebrated. How
can you have a happy birth-
day while living in a shelter
and wondering where your
next meal \ ill come from,
and will it be hot or cold? It
can't have been a happy

had to huddle with thousands
of strangers in an open arena
only to fall asleep on cots.
Even that was better than-

on bridges, or in attics.,
Happy birthday to all of

.I have always been.an active dreamer. As a
matter of fact I am actually too active a
dreamer.
Many times I have awakened to find my
sheets and pillows scattered across the bed-
room.
I don't know why I am such an active
dreamer, I'm sure there is, some Freudian rea-
son for my behavior. But, I have al\ a s
dreamed as far back as I can remember.
I don't remember many of my dreams and
the ones I do remember are indelibly etched
into my brain.
You see, I don't just dream little simple
dreams, oh no, I dream epic dreams.:
When I say epic, I'm talking something
along the.lines of the "War of the World" or
"The Ten Commandments."
I've been chased by the most grotesque
monsters imaginable and been in such tight
spots that I would have needed two-James.
Bonds to get me out.
A dream I remember well, that I had more
than once when I was growing up, involved a
giant ball that chased me. I could get away
from it, but somehow it would always find me
and chase me some more. The ball, thankfully
never actually caught me. but it did come close
a couple of times.
And no, I have no earthly idea what it would
have done if it had caught up with me. I just
knew in my dream that I did not want to find.
out.- -.
Now you talk about a tired night's sleep,
just try and run from a giant ball for eight
hours.
Another dream I had that has stuck with me
all of these years also involved something
chasing me.
This time. it was a grizzly bear.
I dreamed that I had gone to this old man-'
sion somewhere in the country a couple of
miles from town.
It was one:0f those dreams that you do not
know why you are there, you're just there.
In the dream I knocked on the door and a
dried up looking old man opened the door.
The old mansion was in disrepair and had an
odor of mildew that stained the air. As I
walked in the door the, old man asked me if I
was there to see the giant grizzly bear.
Since it was a dream and I had very little
control over what was happening, I said "yes."
"Come with me," the old man said as he led
me to set of stairs that headed into the base-
ment.
He picked up an old kerosene lantern sitting
on the table by the basement door and lit it.
That lantern would be our only light as we
decended into the dark and musty basement.
"Where are we going?" I asked him as we
started stepping down the rackly old staircase.
"To see the bear," he said with no emotion.
I was driven in this dream to see this 'bear
and as hard as I could, I tried to wake myself
up, but to no avail.
The stairs wound down into the dark cavern
of the basement.
"It's this way," he said as he headed for a
door at the back of the basement.
I was afraid to get too far out of my sight
with the dim light of the lantern, so I stayed
right behind him.
The old man unlocked and opened the door.
As the door swung open the hinges creeked
like violins that were bad out of tune.
He brushed away the cob webs in the door
and in front of the dim light I could see a long
corridor.
We walked along the corridor for what
seemed like ten minutes and came upon
another door.
This door had a large metal brace that was
held into place on both sides by brass brackets.
The old man sat the lantern down and asked
me to help him remove the metal brace.
Once the brace was out of the way, he
unlocked two large padlocks and opened the
door to another long corridor.
Again we walked the length of the corridor
to another door. This door had two metal


braces and four pad locks.
That door opened into a large room. In the
center of the room was a cage about 20 foot
square made out of one inch bars.
Inside the cage was the largest grizzly bear I
had ever seen. He rose up on his hind legs
when we entered the large room. He had to be
at least twelve feet tall as he glared down at
me and the old man with his dark glassy eyes.
He let go a growl that shuddered the ground I
was standing on.
"I'm going to open the cage," the old man
said to my horror. Don't move, he told me as
he walked up to the cage door and started
unlocking the six padlocks that bound the door
shut.
I sure hope this is a dream, I remember
thinking as that last padlock fell open.
,I was shaking so hard I couldn't be still.
The bear stepped out of the cage and turned
toward me. He took one' step in my direction
and I could not stop min) self from running.
I ran as hard as I could across the large
room to the open door. I ran through the door
and turned down the long hallway running as
hard as I could possibly run. I could hear the
bear steps as he ran right behind me. At the
next door I plowed through a foot of cob webs
into the basement.
Again as hard as I could run I headed for the
old rickety stairs. I flew up the stairs taking
two and three steps at the time. I slipped and
fell into the main floor of the old mansion as I
topped the stairs. The bear was still right
behind m e. : ,, : '' 'q
Thankfully the front door wasn't locked and
I managed to clear the porch steps in one fell
sweep. Iran down the dust\ lane to the main
road. I could hear my own heartbeat above the
sounds of the bear's feet pounding the road
right behind me.
I turned right and headed for town.
I ran the two miles to town in what had to
be a record time. My heart was racing, but the
bear was gaining on me. When I reached Jef-
ferson Street I headed for the courthouse.
As I ran across the courthouse lawn I could
feel the bear's breath as it hit me in the back of
the neck.
For some reason the courthouse was
unlocked and I ran up the stairs and through
one of the side doors. The bear stumbled on
.the steps as I turned the corner and headed for
the stairs.
The bear caught back up with me as I
climbed the the third flight of stairs and
headed for the clock tower. As I went through
the door of the tower I shut it behind me.
As the bear came through the door it burst
into a thousand pieces.
I had no place else to run and I backed up
against the wall and looked at the bear. He
stood up to his full height and walked straight
at me. He let out a big roar as he reached down
with one of his paws and said,"Tag your it."
Like I said I have some unusual dreams.

Chattahoochee rolling back millage


Grandparents are back in school...


Grandparents went back to school last Thursday. They were there to eat lunch with their grandchildren
as part of a county wide Grandparents Day. Above grandparents eat lunch with their grandchildren at
George W Munroe Elementary.


by BYRON SPIRES
Times Staff Writer

The City of Chattahoochee will be
rolling back its millage rate from
last year's .087 to .083 mills city
manager Lee Garner said. The roll
back, Garner said, would allow the
city to operate within a balanced
budget of $8,236,600. The city
council heard the first reading of the
ordinances for the millage roll back
and budget at its September 6 meet-
ing.
In addition, the council heard the
first reading of the city's new water
and sewage rates. The rates will
change from $.92 per 1000 gallons
to $.97 per 1000 gallons. Sewer
rates will go up five percent.
In other business:
* The council set a special meeting
to be held Monday, September 19,
at 6:30 p.m. for the second readings
of the city's budget, resolutions and
ordinances for fiscal year 2005-
2006.
* The council accepted the city audit


Markham ends 31-year law career


"It's not exactly Mayberry,
but it is real close"

by BYRON SPIRES
Times Staff Writer

Police chief Morgan Markham will make his last
rounds of Greensboro this'Thursday.
Markham said he loved-working in Greensboro and
loved the people that he has served over the last eight
and half years.
"This place is like a big family," Markham said
about Greensboro.
He will admit it's not exactly like Mayberry, but it
is real close.
Like his tv counterpart, Andy Griffith, Markham
very seldom wears a gun.
He only wore it when he would be out at night,
Markham will tell you.
His job, he felt, was to keep the peace in Greens-

for the period ending September 30,
2004. A report provided by Garner
stated that the audit report reflected
that the city was in good financial
condition. The report recommended
that the city do a complete rate
study of all user fees and utilities to
ensure that adequate revenue is pro-


jected to maintain a healthy finan-
cial posture for the city. The council
instructed Garner to instigate the
study and report his findings back to
the council.

It's Time for a Change
I will lift up mine eyes to the hills, from whence cometh my help. Psalm 121:1
KJV. This should nation wide because all of our help cometh from the Lord. From
the Lord of all that the storms have done. It could have been worse still. God is
still in control. Lord, help us to unite and come together before disaster comes.
Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord. Let us put our trust completely in
God. He is everywhere at all times, just as Sept. 11 in New York. God allowed
that to happen, and all the storms. It don't have to be water, or a bomb to take
the whole world out-we could be gone any minute. We need to obey God's word.
Ex. 20:1: Thou shall have no other God before me. God has blessed the nations in so many ways.
Looks like it will take some kind of disaster to really let us see who is really in control of the entire
world. It's time for a change. Church building, no shaorages, Gospels being preached everywhere
but where the church that Jesus told Peter, Upon this rock I will build my church. The gates of hell
should not prevail against it. People being killed in what we are calling the church. Where is that
building Jesus said, It is written my house shall be called a house of prayer by all. Do we have time
to come together for sincere prayers? Do we have the time to come together without limiting the
time? We have to do anything; go any place we choose, stay as long as we like, but a national prayer
meeting that brings results must be the sincere prayer with the Master Key which is Faith. Lord,
increase our faith. We can always stand on the promises of God. Christ has given to us exceedingly
great and precious that through these we may be partakers of the divine nature. Having escaped the
corruption that is in the world we are blessed after all. 2 Peter 1:4 NKJV Jesus still loves us. God
promised to Noah by the rainbow that water would not destroy the earth again even though it cover
homes, etc. But fire next time. So we at least have another chance to get right with God and believe
the words of Jesus. St. John 14:1-1 am going to prepare a place for us and come back to put us in
a mansion. We won't have to be on the roof or under water but in a mansion forever. That should be
our worry: are we preparing about his return? Or about the storms? Its time for a change. Lord help
us to trust and obey your word. Pray for me.
Humbly submitted,
Evangelist Florence M. Bradwell

Gadsden County Times September 15, 2005 9


Heart
from p. 1
food, spare clothes, there was a
|place where we could shower and
sleep. We were 12 hours on and 12
hours off. The people of Gadsden
County would have been proud of
our officers, they were courteous,
kind, and compassionate. They put
on a good show for Gadsden County
and they are to be commended,"
Brown said.
Brown said not only did they help
the survivors, they learned a lot
about disasters. "As disasters go,
this was a storybook disaster: the
,event, the shock, and then reality
sets in. I have been with the depart-
ment a long time and we have poli-
cies that now I see will not work. We
!have to re-think our policies and


make sure we can be self-sustaining
(on everything) for at least 48 hours.
After that all of the help we need
should be here," he said.
In Waveland the first thing that
collapsed was the local government.
"When we arrived there were two
local police officers. They were set
up in a pup tent with no communi-
cations. All of their police cars had
been destroyed, they commandeered
a truck and wrote 'police' on a
poster and duct taped it to the side,"
he said. "It fell apart at the seams,
everything they had in place didn't
work."
He said that Gadsden County is
porbably unique in that the church
community here seems to be more
cohesive. "I feel that if we had a dis-
aster, the churches would come
together to help the people who
can't help themselves. I didn't get
that feeling of community like we


have here," he said.
Why did people stay?
Brown said it was a combination
of things. "Some were financially
unable to leave, some were too stub-
born to leave and others just thought
it wasn't going to be that bad. When
it got bad, it was too late for them to
leave," he said. What Waveland
needs, according to Brown, is pro-
fessional counselors to go in and the
religious community to come in and
help.
. Six more officers are now in
Waveland. They are scheduled to
return later 'this week. But for
Brown and the other officers, their
work is not over. "We're collecting
items to send out Friday morning. A
*semi-tractor trailer is parked in front
of the county jail and we're there
everyday collecting donations of
food, clothing and water," Brown
said.


Katrina drives family west to safety


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

When the Governor of
Louisana told the public to get out
of New Orleans, Harmon Brody,
an accountant, and his wife Brenda
paid attention. Brenda's brother,
Eddie Thompson, climbed in the"
van, too. The three had decided to
head for Blountstown where the.
Brodys own a house they've been
fixing up.
"The governor said.'if you stay
there (in New Orleans) there will
be no help for you, there will.-be
dead bodies floating...that's when
we decided to leave," said Brenda,
a public housing complex man-
ager in New Orleans. The Brodys
and Thompson were guests of the
Gadsden County Sheriff's Depart-
ment for lunch last Friday after
they came to Quincy from
Blountstown to do a little shop-
ping.
Over a lunch of pizza, sub
sandwiches and hot wings, the
Brody's recounted the scare that
drove them east instead of west
and out of the path of Hurricane
Katrina. Just how the Brodys got
invited to lunch was a fluke. Vol-
unteers were out collecting money
to help evacuees when Harmon
was seen standing outside a shop
on North Adams Street. During
the conversation about giving to
help evacuees, he revealed that he


was an evacuee. He and his fam-
ily were invited down to the cen-
tral office to share lunch that had
been set up for volunteers.
"When we crossed Lake Ponchar-
train, you could see the water bub-
bling up. It was churning and bub-
bling. There were so many people
trying to get out. We left at noon
on Saturday and didn't arrive in
Blountstown until 7 a.m. the' next
day, said Harmon. His legs
cramped from the stop and go traf-
fic. He said the highways were
clogged. All of the rest stops were
jam-packed. "People were every-
where, it looked like they were
running from the Nazis. People
were sleeping on tops of cars."
Brenda says she doesn't know
\\ hat happened to some of the ten-
ants in the Fisher Housing Project
she manages. She said she has
heard stories that have disturbed
her. "One friend told me thugs
came up to one woman who had
packed her car to leave. They-
pointed a gun at her and told her to
get out of the car. One of the
young men recognized the woman
as the aunt of another friend and


they allowed her to leave," she
said. Another family wasn't so
lucky. When they packed to leave
they were carjacked and all of
their belongings were taken. ,
The family said they must
decide whether to go back to New
Orleans. Brenda said she wants to
start an Evacuee Support Group in
Calhoun County that will :serve
this region. "I can open my busi-
ness anywhere," Harmon said.

Advance Placements classes help EGHS students


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

Just before the annual Open
House was' held at East Gadsden
High School Monday afternoon in
the gymnasium, another special
meeting for an elite group of stu-
dents was held in the media center.
About 50 students and their parents
were hearing from teachers and
administrators about the advantages
of the Advanced Placement (AP)
Program. In short, these students
were being prepared for the fast
track to college.
The AP classes are open to any
student who is willing to take on the
rigors of advanced classes and the
extra work that entails. Although the
school year is about half way into
the first nine weeks, students who
want to join the AP classes may still
have time to sign on and catch up.
The courses are not easy. "If they
come home and tell you that the
classes are hard, don't worry
because it's !meant to be that way.
These are college courses. They're
being taught the same thing that col-
lege students are being taught down
the road," Geni Everett, East Gads-
den High School's senior adminis-
trator, told the parents.
Gabriel Mack, 17, is a senior at
EGHS. After graduation this spring,
he plans to attend Florida A & M
University and major in pharmacy.
Last year he became the first student
from EGHS to earn full college
credits when he scored a three on
the literature portion. "We studied
Shakespeare and the Greeks," Mack
said.
In order for students to earn col-
lege credits, they are required to
make a score of three or above.
While students scoring below the
three will not earn college credits,
advisors say that taking the AP
classes will be extremely helpful
throughout college.
"My niece took AP calculus and
did hot make a three. But when she
went to FSU and took calculus, she
made the highest grade in her class
because she had taken the AP.class,"
Everett told the students.
John Barnhill, representing the
FSU admissions office., explained
that the AP program is the best
preparation for college available to
students today. "The program has

been around for fifty years and it
was not available where I went to
high school. It is also not available
in many schools today. But I can
assure you that when an admissions
officer looks at an application and
the student has taken AP courses,
they are going to pay more atten-
tion," he said.
"If it comes down to you
and another student getting into a
university, and all things are equal,
and you have taken AP courses,
you're going to be the one who gets
in, because what it says to the
admissions officers is that you have
gone that extra mile."
Not only is AP good for students,
parents were told that it will save
them money. "If your children take
these AP classes, it could save you
roughly $15,000 in college tuition,"
said Barnhill said, adding, "Just tak-
ing the AP classes is important even
if you don't get college credits. The
number one predictor of success in
college is taking hard classes in high
school."
All AP teachers are especially
trained to teach the courses. The
courses offered this year include:
AP Literature and Composition, AP
, Language and Composition, AP
Spanish Language, AP US History,
AP Environmental Science, and AP


Psychology.
"We're not just picking teachers.
All of them have been trained to
teach these courses and they attend
other training where they interact
with AP teachers from around the
state to exchange ideas," Everett
said.
Ivonne Arenda was an. AP stu-
dent at Barbara Goleman Senior
High School in Miami who took
advantage of the AP courses in
Spanish. She was able to earn 12
college credits and save her family
about $1,500. This year she will be
teaching AP Spanish (language) to
-students at EGHS.
Just as Arenda was able to use
her AP credits at FSU, Barnhill told
the students that their credits would
be fully accepted at any public col-
lege or university in the state. "No
matter what school you attend in
Florida, the credits are standardized.
A score of three or more will earn
you a college credit. The higher you
score, the more credits you are
awarded," he said.
Parents .like Lucinda Mack,'
Mary Baker and Sarah Blair were
about the program and the, chal-
lenges it offers. "We'd like to have
more students get excited," Everett
said.

Markham will be passing his
badge to interim chief Marianne
Scholar and putting a 31 year law
enforcement career behind him.
"It is time that I move on to some-
thing else," the 56 year old retiring
chief said Tuesday morning, as he
sat in his office going over paper
work.
Markham's career has covered
four decades and included stints
with the Gadsden County Sheriff's
Department, Florida Department of
Corrections, Chattahoochee Police
Department and the Greensboro
Police Department.
Markham said that he wanted to
thank his Lord and Saviour Jesus
Christ for watching over him and
protecting him over the years and
for providing him with the wisdom
and knowledge to make the right
choices.
There were many over the years
that helped him, he said.
Some of those that are no longer
here, Markham said, that had a great
impact on his law enforcement
career are W.A. Woodham, E. L
Robinson, Pat Thomas and Lawton
Chiles. He had a special thanks for
David Turnage and R.D. Edwards as
well.,
.Markham said that he owed a spe-
cial thanks to his wife of 26 years,
Toppy, and his children for, their
love, support and understanding.
Markham said that a law enforce-
ment officer's life requires a lot of
sacrifices from his family members,
and he appreciated his family's sup-
port.

budget and made a recommendation
that the clerk's budget be increased
to $400,028. Commission Chairman
Ed Dixon said he felt Brown's rec-
ommendation is more than fair, but
Commissioner Brenda Holt said she
did not favor giving anyone (consti-
tutional officers) any money unless
they presented themselves before
the board to explain why they need
the funds asked for in their budgets.
"But I will accept the manager's
recommendationn" Holt said.
Another sore point with several of
the commissioners was the request
from the Chamber of Commerce for
$37,500. "I don't think we've gotten
the goods that we wanted. The
chamber director has hinted that we
will (see) more from that office,"
Dixon said.
Holt asked for and got a committ-
ment that the funds will be tied to a
plan of action from Chamber of
Commerce Director David Gardner
and quarterly reports outlining what
he has accomplished from the work
plan he will present. Lamb said he
favored requiring Gardner to submit
a report, provided all other agencies
that receive money from the county
provide such reports also.

In other business:
Commissioners heard on first
reading an ordinance setting the
city's millage rate at 2.75 mills. The
millage rate is the same as last
year's rate. The commissioners had
tentatively set the rate at 4.0 mills
prior to starting the budget process,
and estimated tax bills reflect the 4.0
rate which reflect high taxes. The
new bills will reflect the city's 2.75
millage rate. This was the first read-
ing and the ordinance will be back
before the commissioners at the
September 27 *meeting for final
approval.
The commissioners approved
this year's budget at $35,773,070.
Some. highlights of the' budget
included: a general fund expenditure
of $9,438,989; sewer expenditure of
$1,515,981; electric expenditures of
$14,613,982: water expenditures of
$1,827,816; and gas expenditures of
$2,577,801. Revenue was listed
from three sources: General fund
(taxes and state revenue sharing);
Enterprise fund (utility payments);
and Special revenue, equalling
$35,773,070.
Mayor Taylor announced that
Wednesday would be Arleen Hous-
ton's last day. Houston is director of
building and planning. Taylor
praised Houston for the service she
has given the city. "She is one excel-
lent go-to person," Taylor said about
Houston's ability to accomplish
tasks.
Houston received a standing ova-
tion from the commissioners and
audience for a job well done.
When asked to speak, Houston
thanked the commission and the city
staff for their help and said that her
time in Quincy "helped me grow
personally".
Commissioners heard from
Cyndi Godbey, the city's grant con-
sultant, on the status of All-Tech
southeast. Godbey said she had
received some documentation con-
cerning the 12 employees that All-
Tech had hired, but would need
more information. S h e
expected the information to be
available by the end of the week.
All-Tech and the city have been

doesn't have to do. Under his
revised budget for non-profit organ-
izations, an additional $125,000 was
added for the Summer Youth
Employment program. The pro-
gram, he said, was workable but the
$25,000 currently allocated only
serves about 36 kids.
The program, which has been
administered in the past by Tallahas-
see Community College, find jobs
for high school students after school
and summers and pays minimum
wage. With Dixon's additional
funds, the budget for non-profit
organizations increased to $94,000
over the $115,000 previously allo-
cated.
"We're facing a juvenile justice
bill here. The state is paying right
now (abut $8 million for this 8-
county area) but it won't be long
before they find someplace else to
spend that $1 million and we are
going to have to pay us," Dixon
said. The money earned through the
program, he said, will keep youths
off the street and out of trouble.
The additional funds, according to
Dixon, will put another 250 youths
to work. "This county has made no
investment in the kids. We really
need to double our efforts."
"Where is the parent's responsibil-
ity? Where is it the Board's respon-
sibility to keep them off the street?
It's a flawed plan," said Watson.
"This program will be funded by
the parents who pay taxes," said
Holt.
; "It sound good, it makes ya'll feel
good .titaitsmpty," Watson <-..d.
'Lainmlsai'sa he could support the

volleying back and forth for the past
year concerning a CDBG infrastruc-
ture grant's requirement that All-
Tech hire a total of 12 new employ-
ees. The grant deadline is at the end
of this month. If All-Tech does not
uphold its end of the bargain the city
could have to pay back part of the
grant.
The commissioners approved the
purchase of five parcels of property
along Tanyard Creek. The property
is part of the Tanyard Creek Park
and Walking Trail.
Commissioners approved bids
for the city's new Nuisance Abate-
ment ordinance which will allow lot
mowing and property maintenance
for property left abandoned or in
disrepair. H and S Services of North
Florida will be the primary provider
with Step One Services the second-
ary provider.
These services will be performed
at specific vacant, abandoned or
occupied properties as designated
by. the city code ordinance, city
attorney Jack McLean said. The city
will charge the property owner for
the services once a violation has
been cited and not .rectified pri-
vately.

program provided there is a struc-
ture where the kids will be subject to
the application process and that stu-
dents learn skills through the pro-
gram.
Dixon also added into the budget
money for A Shepard's Hand in
Havana.
"What made you change your
mind? I recall you were against it if
the same person was running it,"
Watson said to Dixon
"I've decided to give him another
chance," Dixon replied.
Watson said he felt the addition of
a budget director and a public rela-
tions director were jobs that the
county could do without. Both jobs
he said were "completely unneces-
sary."
"This is the most irresponsible
budget I've ever seen...it's the most
fiscal irresponsible.There is no
money for jail improvement, no
money for the courthouse. The
recreation director was a wasted
position. We've thrown away that
money for the past two to three
years. ,We're not in line with our
paramedics. The contingency fund
is too low and we need more than
$100,000 in reserves." he listed.
"In order for the county to grow
the growth has to be guided and the
manner.of growth is an investment.
Are we going to have septic tanks
all over the place? You (Mr. Watson)
want to take us back 50 years, we're
not going back, commissioner. This
budget is an investment in people
and our future," Dixon said.
The county, he said, delivers
"zero" I. ILC' ito. the people. ;"Thp.
only people-'tin nmoneN .u'e peo-
ple with their hands in the till. it's
about getting services to the people.
Before it was about delivering con-
tracts to friends," he said.
The final budget meeting will be
held Monday, Sept. 26, in the
county commissioners' meeting
room at 6 p.m.

Commuter Choices Week, Sept..
26-30, is an annual event that
encourages Big Bend commuters to
consider different commute options
with the goal of reducing traffic
congestion, minimizing automobile
related air pollution, saving money
on commuting costs, and building a
healthier and more prosperous com-
munity.
With recent gasoline prices in the
Big Bend area hovering around
$3.00/gallon for regular unleaded -
the highest price on record finding
a cost-friendly commute option has
never been more necessary.
What can commuters do to offset
rising gas costs? The first step is
learning about what alternatives are
available.
Those who join the cause will be
asked to examine carpooling, .van-
pooling, teleworking, public transit,
walking, biking or other forms of
economic transportation. Com-
muter Services of North Florida,
and .its partners for Commuter
Choices Week, can provide assis-
tance and information for those
interested in changing their com-
muting; patterns. Participation is
encouraged at all levels, whether it
is for the entire week or just one
S day.
Community members can sign up
to be a part of Commuter Choices
Week by registering online at
www.commuterservices.org or fill-
ing out a pledge form and faxing it
to ( 850.) 644-6231.
The first 1,000 commuters


What are we trying to change?
Exercising commute options can
reduce stress, save money, and cut
down on pollution. Trying some-
thing different only one day per
week can have a dramatic affect on
the community and the environ-
ment.
* Automobile emissions are
the number one source of air pollu-
tion in Florida (Florida Department
of Environment Protection)
* 82.4 percent of Tallahassee
commuters drive to and from work
alone every day (2000 Census)
* A short, four-mile round
trip by bicycle keeps about 15
pounds of pollutants out of the air
we breathe (Worldwatch Institute)
* Traffic Congestion
resulted in 2.3 billion gallons of
wasted fuel and 3.7 billion hours of
lost productivity in 2004. Together,
traffic congestion cost the nation
64.8 billion dollars (2005 Urban
Mobility Report)

What did our community accom-
plish in 2004? The hundreds of Tal-
lahassee participants eliminated
5,446 single occupant vehicle trips.
That is over 5000 trips to or from
work that our citizens chose a better
way to go! Of those 5,446 trips:
512 trips were taken by bus
3,846 trips by carpools/vanpools
484 trips by bicycle
264 walking trips
340 trips were completely elimi-
nated by working from home

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.

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.

We sell all of our cars at
