Husband stabs


wife to death


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
Neither the Gadsden County sher-
iff's office nor the Quincy police
department had ever heard of Kathy
Lynn Partida Chavez before Sunday.
She had not taken advantage of any
of the services available in the
county, for women who have been
abused by spouses.


The 23-year-old Quincy woman
was stabbed twice in the chest by
her husband, Daniel Chavez, 24,:
Sunday morning in the Wakulla
County community of Medart-
where she had gone to stay with
friends for refuge. Chavez died fronr
her injuries several hours after sh&
was flown to Tallahassee Memorial
Hospital. Her husband, who stabbed

by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
By a unanimous vote, the board of
county commissioners, during its
regular meeting Tuesday night,
voted to name the new main branch
of the public library for former
county commissioner Bill McGill.
McGill's wife, Mary, thanked the
commissioners for their vote. Mem-
bers of the Gadsden County Men of
Action attended the meeting to
show support for naming the library
after one of their former members.
"I know that Bill did a lot of lobby-
ing for the citizens of Gadsden
County. He was an outstanding per-


son for Gadsden County," saia
Henry Gunn, Sr. current president of
the organization.
McGill died two years ago after
battling lung cancer. The construc-
tion of new libraries was one of the-
projects he worked to get for the
county.
Commissioners also presented the:
American Red Cross with a check
for $12,512 for the Hurricane Kat-
rina Relief Fund. "This money was.
raised from local churches last
weekend. I want to commend the
churches for their effort. I also know
that the Sheriff's Department is:

SThere is: a. housing problem in
Gadsden County. It would take a
minimum of 2,400 homes today to
take care of the current housing
needs.
In order to address the problem
county officials asked the managers
of each municipality to identify
areas of major housing concerns and
to look at ways the county can help.
From condemned properties in the,
High Bluff Village in Midway to
properties in the city limits of
Quincy, the story was the same
throughout the county. Time did not


permit the tour to extend to Gretna,
Greensboro, Sawdust and Chatta-
hoochee. "We will plan for that area
on another day," said County Com-
mission chairman Ed Dixon.
Midway's city manager Paul Piller
pointed out the problems in Mid-
way. "We have substandard housing
and we're addressing that. A lot of
,people have old, junk cars in their
yards right inside the city limits," he
said. The plan clean up the city is an
ambitious one and Piller thinks it
will work. People who have junk
cars on their property will be asked
to pay a private company a small

Local Baptist help Katrina victims

Hattiesburg and Purvis Mississippi relieved help from the tweenty-six Baptist


by BYRON SPIRES
Times Staff Writer

Although much of the media
coverage of Hurricane Katrina's
damages has centered around the
Gulf Coast, Katrina's fingers of
destruction had far reaching
effects.
For five days 26 local Gadsden
Baptist Association members cut
trees and hauled limbs in Hatties-
burg, Mississippi, over a hundred
miles from the Gulf Coast, from
damage done by Katrina.
"There was'hardly a house that
did not have damage," Susie Tip-
ton from Chattahoochee said.
Tipton said that it was not
unusual to see homes with multi-
ple trees laying across them. The
area is known for its abundance of
pecan trees and many of those old
ancient trees are now gone, she
said.
"You could walk up in a front
yard and think, 'this doesn't look
too bad', then you would walk
around to the back yard and it
would be covered in downed trees
and the back of the house would
be destroyed," Tipton said.
The Gadsden crew worked
cleaning. up debris and cutting
trees from people's homes..Men
and women worked side by side
dragging limbs in the sweltering
heat.
"I'm here to testify it was hot
in Mississippi," Tipton said.
The Gadsden relief workers
were stationed at the Main Street
Baptist Church, where they also
slept the nights they were in Hat-
ftiesburg.
"We took sleeping bags, and slept
in the sanctuary. Over 200 people
were housed in the church,"
Shirley Clark said. Clark added
that there was not a room in the
church that did not have someone
sleeping in it.
Overall that week over 800 other
Baptist were in that area with ihe
relief effort. The relief c i. aj cd
the same obstacles thafflhe local
faced: no potable water and lim-
ited electricity if any at all. Like
the locals they too were depend-
ent on food and water brought in
from outside.
This relief effort was not just
by happenstance. So u t h -
ern Baptists and especially
Florida Baptists have been devel-
oping a relief effort for the past,
several years. Two South Florida
Associations have built food wag-
ons to be used during times of dis-
asters. One will feed up to 25,000,
the other 8,000.' In addition there
were trailers mounted with show-
ers and washing machines to help
the victims and those participat-
ing in the clean-up.
Although. there were a few
workers that were not trained,
most of the relief effort involved
workers who have been trained in
how to respond. Florida Baptist
have regular training sessions all
over the state to prepare volun-
teers to work when disaster
strikes.
The workers are divided into
three categories and their hats
during the relief effort signify


their position on the team. White
hats are for those in charge of
coordinating the effort. In order to
be in that position white hats must
have completed a regimen of
training. Next are the blue hats
who are team leaders. Again, a
team leader has been through a
training program. Last, but not
least are the yellow hats who are
the workers. They earn their hats
by participating in training
classes.
Shirley Clark said that she and
her husband, Scott, had just com-
pleted their training in April of
this year.
The relief effort is a well-coor-


dinated effort according to Jackie
Sharpton, one of the relief work-
ers.
Each day the blue hats meet,
and are assigned that day's work
order based on needs, she said. So
every morning they had to go to a
different, location to work. Every
day the blue hats would meet for
their team's work orders at the
Main Street Baptist Church.
The church not only housed the
relief workers, but was a clearing
house for the work that needed to
be done. Victims of the hurricane
came to the church to ask for
assistance and crews were sent
out to help them.
Gadsden County's relief effort
coordinator, Eddie Potter, is cur-
rently ..in Hattiesburg working
with the second crew from the
county. "Eddie has done a great,
job of bring this effort together.
He las worked real hard,", Scott
Clark said about Potter.
Clark said that Potter had taken
on the project as. his mission to
people.
The group had many wonderful
experiences. It was hard work and
Scott said' teasingly that the
women who had helped with the
tree removals had been given a


special title as debris removal
engineers.
Sharpton said that there was a
lot of camaraderie among the
workers and that before it was
over everyone felt like a big fam-
ily.
There were special times also.
One older couple in their eighties
touched all of their hearts. James
and Golla Mackabee. James saw
the crew coming and met them
clapping his hands and thanking
them for coming to help clear the
debris from his yard.
Another older couple took the
hurricang and ..its damage all in
stride. The women told Tipton
that during the high winds their
garden of 1,000 day lilies "were
just dancing."
One of the teams removed sev-
eral huge trees from the couples'
home and yard. To this couple
those who came to help in their
time of need were their "angels."
There are hundreds of stories
about experiences the workers
had while helping Katrina's vic-
tims.
The Gadsden team also went to
Purvis, a small town south of Hat-
tiesburg, and worked one of their
days while they were in Missis-
sippi. Some of the teams put "blue
tops" on damaged roofs. Sharpton
said that the youngest person of
that crew was 60 years old.
The average she thought for
the workers would have been well
into the fifties.
One man who was hauling
debris on a dump truck saw the
workers and gave .them money
and said, "Ya'll are doing a won-
derful job."
People were camping out in
their own homes or yards with no
electricity or water, and they were
helped as well.
One .man from Minnesota-
came down and kept the chain
saws operational at no charge. He
'said it was his way of helping '
Glenn\'Webei ,i n a Bobci.a pto-.
vided by Lolle\'s Rental free of
charge, Sharpton said. which
helped move the clean-up process
along more quickly, especially the
larger trees.
A lot of hugs and tears fol-
lowed the work that the Gadsden
team :completed, they will tell
you. The team found out that

there was a need for diapers in the
area and sent word back home. A
couple of days later two, trucks

at the church in Hattiesburg to be

time to replenish an almost empty

moment," she said. We could all
face .hie same trials and tribula-
tions one day she said, and for
th-t time we would also appreci-
ate the kind of help the team pro-
vided in Mississippi. An added
benefit, Shirley said, was getting
to know the people in their group.
"They were a good group to work
with," she said.
"We gave people hope," Susie
Tipton said. The devastation was


enormous and the people felt
overwhelmed with what had hap-
pened. To have someone you did
not know show up at your home
and help you dig out from under
all of the debris Tipton said was
inspiring to the victims. "I'll be
changed forever in my thinking."
It was the hope that the team gave
them that she felt showed them
their love of Christ.
"I felt like we did so little,
because there was so much to be
done," Jackie Sharpton said. She,
too, felt that the experience has
been one she will always remem-
ber and that it gave her an oppor-
tunity to show God's love in a
very special way.
Tom Kennedy, the Gadsden Bap-
tist Association's director of mis-
sions, had this to say about those
that went.
"They are to be commended.
They are willing to give up their
time and means, to restore some
type of normalcy to people who
have been very traumatized,"
Kennedy said.
Each one of the participants
provided their own way to and
from the relief area Kennedy said.

people in this county who have
given to help the relief effort,"
Kennedy added.

mation about the Baptist relief
effort please contact Kennedy at

Residents of the Deer Ridge Estates south of Havana
waited for months to get the developers of their subdi-
vision or their representatives before the Board of
County Commissioners for a public hearing. Tuesday
night, they were told they had to wait a little longer.
David Theriaque, attorney for the developers, suffered
chest pains Tuesday afternoon and was taken to the hos-
pital. The board of county commissioners, on the advice
of County Attorney Thornton Williams, postponed the
public hearing.
Homeowner Dixie Lord told commissioners that the
18 homeowners in Deer Ridge states trusted the county
and the builder. "I'm sorry for.Mr. Theriaque if he has
health problems, but we have had problems for
months," she said. At times, she said, some residents
were unable to flush their toilets when they wanted to.
"Some of us were told not to take more than two show-
ers in an hour. We are real live people," she said, nam-


ing some of the professions of her neighbors.
Lord asked the BOCC not to let the families in the
subdivision down any more than they have already been
disappointed.
She said the residents have spent hundreds of dollars
out of their own pockets and spent countless hours away
from their families trying to resolve their problems,
which include erosion, failed sepctic tanks, poor
drainage, and undermined streets.
Commission chairman Ed Dixon said he was prepared
for the public hearing and was informed by Williams
and the county manager an hour prior to the meeting
that Theriaque was ill.
"I was prepared to have the meeting whether they
were here or not. You (the homeowners) have our unan-
imous support. There are some rules out there that we
didn't write and we want to move this thing along, too,"
he said.
Commissioner Sterling Watson, reiterated Dixon's
concerns for the residents. "Don't think for one moment
that we're going to let this guy skirt the issue," he said.

Minneapolis, MN (Release Date TBD) Discover the pain, the heart-
break, then exultant triumph of a young tribal princess from the west coast
of Africa. Author 0. Wright releases his new book Lavina: the Saga of an
African Princess. This novel is a tender romance entwined with the over-
tones of one of the most horrific periods of American history: the time of
colonial slavery.
Dr. Wright focuses on two specific victims of this evil practice: Lavina
and Rabboni. This novel charts the epic journey of Lavina, a young heroine
from the coastal plains of Guinea, who was born to loving parents but was
later sold as a slave in colonial America. At her inauguration celebration-
their marketplace is overrun and their parents are murdered in the brutal
attack. Marauding slave traders kidnap Lavina and her promised one,
Rabboni.
This heartrending novel tells how Lavina and Rabboni are separated-
Lavina is purchased by kind hearted puritans, while Rabboni experiences
cruel and demeaning treatment at the hands of his owners. It portrays their
loving romance and how their faith helps them persevere and withstand the
conditions despite the overwhelming forces marshaled against them. Both
young people have faith in the Almighty Protector and miraculously they
find each other again.
Dr. Wright focuses on the most horrific period of American history when
colonial slavery was instituted. Told in graphic and honest detail the story
should be required reading for all young Americans, especially young
African-Americans, establishing their significance of culture and ethnic
roots.'The story turns again and again to God's grace and His overcoming
power given to those who trust Him. God moves on the hearts of colony
members and finally the revelation of His will is proclaimed. This author's
unique Christian framing of these historical events give the book added
dimension and meaning. Discover the pain, the heartbreak, then exultant tri-

Pilot mentoring program to start at Stewart Street Elementary B


by ALICE DUPONT
Times Editor

The Governor's office
announced Monday that Stewart
Street Elementary School in
Quincy will become part of a pilot
mentoring program designed to
help the eight Florida counties that
have at least one elementary school
that earned an "F" rating based on
Florida Comprehensive Assess-
ment Test (FCAT) scores.
City mayors will lead this ini-
atitve to recruit leaders from corpo-
rations, governments, and faith-


based organizations, Lt. Gov. Toni
Jennings said in a press release.
"The idea is to contact some of
the community leaders to become
mentors. They (the organization)
wanted to go through the commis-
sioners. I wanted to tap into the
retired teachers association and use
the local television station, WQTN,
and see what we can get through
the media. I'm going to ask all the
local newspapers for assistance. We
want the local newspapers to give
us a series of maybe six or seven
ads about mentoring. I want to put


together a plan and not have an
avalanche of people on campus,"
said Quincy mayor Sherrie Taylor.
She said she wants to meet first
with the school's principal, James
Ray, and Superintendent Reginald
James to come up with a plan. "If
the mentors need training, we have
to get them trained to mentor our
children. I'm going to work as hard
as I can to help make the program
work," she said.
The Florida Mentoring
Partnership's program, called.
Focus on Achievement, targets


school such as Stewart Street. The
goal of the mentor program is to
help those schools from failure to
high-level ratings, said Fonda
Anderson, a spokeswoman for the
Volunteer Florida Foundation that
administers the mentoring partrner-
ship. If this programs is successfl,
Anderson said, it will be expanded
to middle and high schools.
The other six counties targeted
for Focus on Education are Jeffer-
son, Broward, Escambia, Hillsbor-
ough, Miami-Dade, Orange, and
Putnam.

"The pond is actually out of our
jurisdiction but a lot of our people
fish in it and they have for many-
years. The mayor (Helen Franks)
called me last Wednesday and
asked me to look into it .because'
,she had received calls from citi--
zens," said Charles Hayes,
Gretna's public works director.
The pond, which locals call "the
Hardaway pond" because of its
location, was the site of hundreds
of dead fish. Last week the water
was red as bleeding fish nearly
covered the top of the pond that's
about 20 feet at the widest point.
"They (DEP.i came to take samples
of the water Thursday. I was told
that the algae bloomed and had
taken all of the oxygen out of the'
v\ ater. and that's why the fish were
dying," Hayes said. However, he
added, that doesn't account for

bleeding fish.
Hayes said DEP officials
planned to talk with the owners of
cotton fields just above the pond to
find out if they were using different
insecticides or if they had changed
anything in the planting process.
Hayes said it was curious that the
fish were only dying in the spill out
part of the pond.
By Monday afternoon most of
the stench was gone and only a few
fish littered the sides of the pond.
"The fish are living under the water
and most, of whatever it was has
been washed down toward Telogia
Creek," Hayes said. The pond
empties into Telogia Creek where a
lot of the small tributaries in this
area come together

Speaking out against domestic violence


finding Roads


By: Byron Spires


How's your P. M A. doing?


Last week I attended a meet-
ing of the Gadsden County
Domestic Violence and Sexual
Assault Task Force. The group
nieets'monthly to discuss ways
to help. victims of domestic
violence and sexual assault.
This meeting was dedicated
almost entirely to the annual.
"Speak Out" held to bring
attention to the problem and to
educate the public.
One part of the "Speak Out"
program involved recognizing
those who have lost their lives
ii domestic violence situations.
Another part of the program is
tite addition of names to the
monument on the west side of
t~e Courthouse Square: We
talked about the fact that only
one name will be added this,
, ar and were saddened b3 the
16ss of life of even one person..
ktill, we were grateful that we
d~d not have multiple names to
atid as we have in the past.
Then, Sunday morning
another Gadsden County citi-
z4n was murdered in a domes-
tic % violence situation. While the
incident itself did not occur
here, Kathy Cha\ ez was a part
of the fabric of this community.


Midways citizens' dilemma

Dear Editor,

,Midway Citizens, I want to keep
you encouraged that I am working
day and night .and in constant
prayer for you, that your quality of
life be improved. I have collected
information and contacted individ-
u'als:
I. To get a structured, workable,
dependable Fire Department in
Midway., In the June meeting I
b'roight information to share \\ith
the council. The fact that it came
from me two council members
became enraged, one councilman-
drdered the volunteer fireman not
to give me anythifig, give it to the
city manager. These council mem-
bhers forget that I am a part of that
eIquation whether they like it or
not. The people put me there. The
other six walked on. You people
don't know who your representa-


A lot of people, many of whom
she will never know, will
mourn her death. A life cut
short by the man who pro-
fessed to love, honor, and cher-
ish her.
In October the nation will
observe Domestic Violence
Month. Television and radio
stations will air public service
announcements probably fea- -
turing the gruesome statistics
on the number of women who
are maimed and killed each
year as the result of domestic
violence. Programs like out
"Speak Out" will be held
throughout the nation. Many
candlelight vigils will be held
and many tears will be shed by
families who will re-live the
tragedy all over again.
Is there anything an> body
can do.to at least curb what
appears to be a train picking up
steam everyday?
I don't know if stiffer jail
sentences will help either.
Should the nation embark on a
true education campaign much
like the "Buckle Up" campaign
and drill it into the nation's ,
collective head that it isn't
alright to hit someone? And. on


-tives-are' unless in-the'ne\\ s or on
TV. Except Ella Barber the only
way the)'canbe contacted is by
the city manager. He shields them.
II. To get a police department of
our own.
IIL. To get low-income, afford-
able housing and repairs for our
citizens already here. I am attend-
ing meetings talking to people in
Leon, Gadsden County, concerning
this. I contact the agencies who
give me all of the information I
need, instead of pulling out select
pages.
IV. A public school to accom-
modate all of Mid\%a'"s children
in and out of the city limits.A very
unwise idea was proposed to pa\
some outsiders $20,000 to come-in
and tell us who and what about
Midway school. ($5,000 was
approved immediately by the
council 4 to 1. I voted no.) An ele-
mentary child could do that. Who
should know more. about us and
our needs better than ourselves?
They spend your money like run-
ning water. Midway is being
ripped apart, all kinds of revenue
is coming in. I am all for progress
SBUT! Kick some relief into the
community instead of two or three
special, grant paid housing proj-
ects with everything. While city
manager and majority of the coun-
cil give us down-under ones noth-
ing! I am asking: How many dol-
lars in grant money had Midway
received 2003 to 2005 and. on
whom was it spent? Unlighted
streets/roads Help me with this!,
V. The greatest, saddest most
despicable case of all. Our chil-l
dren were deprived, of any struc-
tural program this summer. They
are in school most of the year, dur-
ing break and summer there is
nothing. It's a shame with all the
money flying around!! There is no
adult supervision only one
employee part time. Where is the.
emphasis on publicity for the city

the flip side of that, teach peo-
ple that it isn't alright to be
someone's, personal punching
bag.
I think that a comprehensive
educational plan that is a
national effort is the answer. If
we are serious about stamping
out this killer of thousands of
mothers, daughters and sisters
each year, it's going to take a
lot more than trotting out the
Sevils of domestic violence once
a year. It has to be an "in your
face" everyday effort.
Everywhere the abusers look
'they should be-reminded that
what they are doing is wrong
and that there are conse-
quences. Families have to learn
to patrol each other. How many
times have you gotten in the
car and a child will remind you.
to "buckle up"? That's the
same kind of commitment it's
going to take to save the lives
of women who are killed each
year at the hand of a spouse or
boyfriend.
Sadly, it's too late for Kathy
Chavez. Her funeral service
will be held today and another
family has been denied her
love and affection, forever.


officials \\ho hit- the- news fre,-
quently achieving self-acclaim
and glory and the poor children,
elderly and underprivileged Mid-
way originals are neglected seri-,
ously, and greatly deceived and
exploited. I pray that soon those at
the controls will get a dose of their
own medicine. There is still God
who sees and knows all. Citizens.
please join me in more fervent
prayer that God intervenes in our
behalf.

Ella Barber

'Grateful for professionalism

Dear Editor,

My husband and I want to pub-
licly thank the Havana Police and
the county EMS personnel on the
speed and -professional way they
responded .to our emergency of
Sept. 3rd. Within minutes of call-
ing 911, two Havana police cars
answered and started, assistance.
This was followed by the county)
EMS who arrived 3 to 4 minutes
later. All did their jobs very
quickly and professionally. Within'
minutes they had transported my,
husband to an awaiting helicopter
for transportation to TMH. From
the time my husband collapsed
until he was in TMH only 30 min-
utes had transpired. This was,
remarkable and probably saved his
life. Our doctors have told us that
75% of the people with his condi-
tion never make it to the emer-
gency room. We are very fortunate
and grateful and we want, to'
express our thanks to those profes-
sionals who were such a blessing
to us on Sept. 3. They are our
heroes.

Thelma Freeman

Let us all help

Dear Editor,

I. as millions of others. ha\e
been watching the continuing cov-
erage of the devastation of "Killer
Katrina". I was so very proud of
this Community when I heard on
one of the National channels about


Do you know what P. M. A. stands for?
It is the initials for Positive Mental Attitude.
Years ago it was used by nearly every moti-
vational speaker.
You got to have PMA they would tell you.
Now there is all kinds of motivational material
to make you a better person and get you moti-
vated to get up and go.
If you were in any type of sales job back
then you probably were often asked ho\\ s our
PMIA was doing.
Now if you were to ask someone that, they
%would probably think you were being a little
too personal.
:But, there is a lot to be said about PMA, just
the same. I know you are w working on "1800
Ways to be Happy," however it may take a
% while even to get half way to being happy.
:That's why I like PMA. It's simple enough
that even I can understand the principle.
All you need to do is focus on the good and
let the bad go.
There is only one problem. It's eas\ to focus
on the good, but it sure is hard to let the bad
go.
Not letting the bad go has a way of under-
mining focusing on the good.
Let's say you are a kid in school. It's hard to
focus on the good, if every day you go to
school you have to deal with a bully. Most
people have had to deal with bullies in their
life and it is not a pleasant experience. It is
certainIN hard to have a positive mental atti-
tude when someone is threatening to beat you
up-
' There are a lot of other bad things that hap-'
pen to us as well. Illness, family problems.
financial problems, and the list goes on, and on
with way too many things to list here..
The reason that I am writing this is that I,
too, have a problem staying focused on the
good.
Over the past four years we have seen some


Gadsden County representatives
being --on the scene". When Den-
nis was threatening us in July,"
Sheriff Deputies came to our com-
plex 'and made sure there were
emergency numbers available 'to
all of our residents here at Green
lMeadows.
I had just returned from
Panacea (Wakulla County) where
we have another complex and saw
a Deputy handing out the emer-
gency info flyer to people at the
BP station on 'Pat Thomas at I-10.
Political opinions aside, I choose
to believe it is the people of each
and every community to .make
sure we are "safe" during such
times.
As much as we hate to admit it,
we really cannot depend on the
Federal Government to know
exactly what is happening every-
where in our country at all times.
(Don't we all have a problem with
"Big Brother"?) FEMA/ Federal
response time to this horrible situ-
ation is deplorable, but people
NEED to take into consideration.
that all- communications were
down.
And, unfortunately for Mayor
INagin of New Orleans, it IS his
responsibility to find a way to
communicate his immediate needs
to FEMA. They are not there-
they don't know unless they are
told!
If race/income level were really
a factor in this equation, more than
70% of the citizens of this county
(probably state) would perish!
Let's all stand behind our per-
sonal (moral) obligation to help
one another..very much like the
Deputies of the Gadsden County
Sheriff's Office did when Dennis
headed our way. Thank God, we
were spared once again!
Nlay we all keep our thoughts


things that few generation will ever witness.
We' saw our own country attacked by outsiders
bent on destroying our way of life. And then
recently we witnessed one of the most cata-
strophic hurricanes in recorded history.
I have wondered how to keep that PMA
intact
I have laid in bed at night and thought about
all of the bad things that have gone on around
us and wondered what would happen next.
As I am writing this another hurricane is
lurking in the Caribbean headed for the Gulf of
Mexico.
Before the doomsday.critics start lamenting
on the end of time I have had an. epiphany of
sorts about all this bad that has happened.
There is actually a lot more good out there:
than you and I may realize.
What, you may say, is the good?
It is people.
It is people that are willing to give of them-
selves, both financial\ and physically to help
those in need.
It happened after Septemeber 11, 2001 and it
continues to happen today.
It is happening right here in our community,
people have given. Yeah, some didn't have a
lot to give, but they have given. It is part of
our soul to help those that need help.
Maybe we give, because we understand
about the bad and the impact that it can have ,
on our lives. We can easily empathize with'
someone that is going through troubling times,
it's not hard to understand, bad times when N'ou
have had them yourself.
Maybe that is the key to having a positive
mental attitude, being able to deal with the bad
things that happen and moving back to the
good things that we have, like our-families.
I heard a speaker talking about how to
increase your sales say that every negative was
one step closer to a positive.
.1 think I understand no\% what he meant.


and prayer with all the victims of
Katrina.

Dear Editor,

St. John Elementary School Date:
Fri, 9 Sep 2005 23:29:24 +0000
Please submit in your next publi-
cation. Thanks!!! The' sky was
blue and the sun was peeking
through the white feathery clouds.
Not a child was in sight. At least,
not until another thirty-five min-
utes. As I watched the clock tick,
tock, I waited patiently. Expres-
sions of excitement were on my
face, as I witnessed youfig bright


faces arriving on the first day to
my classroom. We are currently
embarking on our fifth week of
.,school. I must say that my experi,
ences St. John ElementaNr School
as a new teacher, thus far have,
been great. I appreciate the admin-
istiation, faculty and staff for sim-
pl\ being helpful and encouraging.
The third grade students are 6ff to
a good start. Please feel free to
stop bN our science bulletin board.
We recently covered a chapter
about tlh variety and functions "of
plants. Although- this year has just
begun, I am optimistic about the:
great things to come for not only
my class but for all of the students
at St. John Elementary School as
well. I am proud to be a Rocket!!

Things finally broke right for me last week as
I took m, first win of the yeat in my football
predicting season.
It -was a big week-end and of my 10 picks I
hit 7. Opponent Liberty County. County\. Com-
missioner Dexter Barber hit 6 of 10.
The win came after two losses in the first
two weeks making this an important week as I
ir' to even things up for the veal.
That looks like it will not be an eas\ thing to
do. NI~ opponent is a pretty knowledgeable
football man.

SCOREBOARD'
College
"I TT 9 .R-o h-vn!,'elloCre 17


scores 5 touchdowns


by Cale Wheeler
A revamped offensive line led the
way for running back Ron Bums to
total 277 yards rushing and 5 touch-,
downs to put West Gadsden past
Sneads 34-14 in a District 1-A game
played in Greensboro Friday night.
The Panthers gained more yards
in Friday nights game than they had
in their 2 previously contest as they
used a week-off to work on the
offensive line.
Behind Bums running West
Gadsden built a 20-0 halftime lead.
Burns got first half touchdowns on
runs of 31, 10, and 53 yards. He
also added a 2 point conversion run
following his first touchdown.
Sneads tried to make a move
early in the, second half but was
shorted when Ronnie, Jackson
recovered a fumble.
A 43 yard run by Rashard McMil-
lian set up Bums fourth touchdown
of the night which came on a 27
yard run.


Bums fifth touchdown was scored
in the fourth quarter on a 57 yard
gallop and Bum's added another
point after that run giving him all 34
of the Panthers points.
Bums last touchdown was sand-,
wiched between a .pair of touch-
down passes by the Pirates Kevin
Lawson. Lawson passed to Matt
Neel for an 8 yard score and had a
nice 25 yard pitch and .catch to
Jimmy Johnson to account for the
Sneads scoring.
Defensively the Panthers con-:
trolled the Sneads offense most of
the game with seniors Chris Atkins,
Allen Blair, and Darius Winbush
leading things. Atkins had 13 tack-
les, Blair 11, and Winbush 7.
The win puts West Gadsden's
record at 1-2 but more important is,
they have a 1-0 district' record.
They meet Liberty Co. the number 3
ranked Class 1A team in Bristol Fri-
day night. The important district
contest will start at 7:30 pm.

before the visitors stiffened.
The defense had good nights from
Ronald Gordon and Reginald Ray

find that special outfit for the Holi-
days!
The event will be held Saturday,
Oct. 15, at the Sawano Club in
Quincy .from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Pro-


ceeds from the $30 ticket will help
support ongoing operations at the
Center's historic site in downtown

Public can speak on
transportation
alternatives
Area residents are invited to attend
public meetings hosted by the Capi-
tal Region Transportation Planning
Agency (CRTPA) Sept. 26 through
29 to review two proposed alterna-
tives for the CRTPA's multi-modal
Capital Region Year 2030 Long
Range Transportation Plan (LRTP)
affecting residents of Leon County
and portions of Gadsden and Wakul-
la Counties.
Attendees will also be able to
voice their opinions on transporta-
tion alternatives, identifying poten-
tial positive and negative impacts of
specific projects and strategies being
proposed. This meeting is the sec-
ond in a series of three public work-
shops intended,to assist in develop-
ing the Capital Region Year 2030


LRTP by the year's end.
The two proposed alternatives to
be addressed at the September meet-
ings are the "Enhanced and Existing
Systems" (EES) and the "New and
Future Systems" (NFS). The EES
alternative consists mostly of en-
hancements and extensions to the
present roadways and bus routes.
The NFS option includes some proj-
ects from the EES alternative, but
mainly focuses on new corridors and
transportation modes not presently
found in the region.
"We're excited to get the publics'
feedback on the two alternatives
we've developed," said Jack
Kostrzewa, executive director of the
CRTPA. "We hope area residents
recognize the importance of their in-
put. Part of the alternatives' devel-
opment came from the shared opin-
ions at our first meetings in late
June."
The public meetings are scheduled
for the main branch of the Leon
County Public Library on Monday,
September 26; Crawfordville Ele-
mentary School on Tuesday, Sep-
tember 27; Tallahassee Senior Cen-
ter on Wednesday, September 28;
and Havana Public Library on
Thursday, September 29. All meet-
ings will run from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.
and will present the same informa-
tion and opportunities for input.
The CRTPA is the independent


government agency responsible for
transportation planning in Leon
County and portions of Gadsden and
Wakulla Counties, extending west to
Quincy and south to U.S. Highway
98.
Meeting regularly, the CRTPA
Board is composed of elected offi-
cials from county and city govern-
ments and staffed by a team of pro-
fessional planners with extensive
experience in all facets of trans-
portation planning.
The agency has contracted with
Cambridge Systematics, Inc. (CS), a
consulting firm specializing in trans-
portation planning solutions, to as-
sist with the plan's development. To
learn more about the Year 2030

Commission

doing something and the City of
Quincy as well as other organiza-
tions and individuals. I know that
this community has a big heart to
help others," said commissioner Ed
Dixon.
Commissioners held several pub-
lic hearings on Comprehensive Plan
amendments.
The first amendment change
related to the text of the transmittals.
The text amendment was tabled
until commisisoners could become
more familiar with the exact lan-
guage of the text. "I don't recall us
talking about slopes and specifica-
tions. This would have a huge
impact on Gadsden County. I would
like to table it because I have some
concerns," said commissioner Ster-
ling Watson. Other commissioners
agreed and said they would be more
comfortable revisiting the amend-
ment text before transmitting it to
the Department of Community
Affairs for review.
The Advigo Comprehensive Plan
Amendment was adopted on first
reading. The amendment would
change the land use from agricul-
tural to rural residential. Bobbie
Chambers, who lives near the prop-
erty in question, said she had con-
cerns about what the property will
be' used for in the future. Commis-
sioner Watson told her that the
landowner must appear before the
board of county commissioners and
present a plan before any activity
can take place on the property.L
The Loughmiller Comprehensive
Plan Amendment would change the
land use on a piece of property north
of Quincy from Agricultural to min-
ing. The plan passed and will be
transmitted to DCA. Residents in the
area complained to commissioners
that they opposed the, land use
. change because of the noise it would
bring to their quiet community. -
Commissioners asked the residents
and the mining company representa-
tives to work out an agreement all
parties could live with and make
-their recommendation to the BOCC.
The residents asked for operating
'rin r.rrr; '"., '"; - , -


hours that would not interfere with
the tranquility, as well as buffers. The
mining company agreed.
The Stodard 1 Comprehensive
Plan Amendment was tabled after
members of the board said they did-
n't recall granting premission for
mobile homes. Commissioner
Dixon asked to table the matter until
he has time to review minutes of the
meeting when the request for a land
use plan was first made.
In other matters, Commissioner
Watson asked how the effectiveness
of a lobbying firm the county plans
to hire will be measured. Six firms
answered the request for proposals
and three were interviewed. The
firms with the three lowest bids will
make a presentation.
Watson said the firm should have
strong ties with the Republican party
given the fact that the Florida Senate
and House of Representatives as
well as the Governor and Cabinet
are largely Republicans.
While that is true, Dxion said,
most lobbying firms operate on
issues. "They may be lobbying for a
small issue this morning and with an
oil company in the afternoon.
"How will we know that we got
our money's worth?" Watson asked.
"When they bring us what we
asked for," Dixon replied.


Housing
Continued from Page 1
pany a small amount, between $15
and $20, to remove the vehicles. The
incentive will be that the junk cars
are removed and the proerpty will
no longer be unsightly.
Another problem shared by many
municipalities and in the unincorpo-
rated areas is the issue of heirs prop-
erty. "A lot of the property that could
be used to build homes on is heirs
property. It can be expensive locat-
ing all of the people involved, so the
property remains vacant over the
years," said Nancy Gee, the county's
grants coordinator.
The City of Midway has been suc-
cessful in purchasing abandoned
lots from the county from the tax
deed. Piller said the city has been
buying the properties in hopes of
building homes for citizens by using
funds from various housing grants.


Gee said areas like Midway's Parker
Quarters and the Peter's Road area
are prime sites for development.
Piller pointed with pride to the num-
ber of site build homes springing up
along County Road 268. But com-
missioners Dixon and Eugene Lamb
expressed major concerns about
septic tanks. All of the homes have
septic tanks and sit on a quarter acre
of property. "We're setting ourselves
up for some serious problems in the
years to come," Lamb said. He said
that while the county wants to see
growth it needs more than just
homes going up.
"What we're going to have is peo-
ple coming here to sleep. We need
shops, banks, pharmacies, restau-
rants and other places where people
can spend money. That's where your
tax base is going to come from,"
Lamb said.
"The aim of this tour is to identify
potential areas for affordable hous-
ing," Gee said.
Havana's city manager Susan
Friedan said while the residents of
Hampton Heights, just north of the
Havana city limits, may be ripe for
housing initiatives.' The area is not
served by the city's water and sewer
systems and Friedan said Havana
cannot afford it. "There is no sewer
system. There is no garbage pick up.
We cannot annex (Hampton
Heights), we'd have to hire more
people," she said.
"A lot of these houses," she said,
"need to be torn down." She told
Dixon and, others that is where the
county can help.
The tour extended to the old
Havana Northside High School.
Today, the school looks like a rusty,
relic. A group of citizens once asked
the school board to donate the build-
ing to be used as a center for serv-
ices ranging from social services to
recreational: However, with no for-
mal plan presented and no funding
sources, it is doubtful that the school
will be used for anything in the near
future.
The school sits on 51 acres, 20 of
which have been used for the
school. It is surrounded by mostly
older homes with an aging popula-
tion. With no recreational facilities,
the location would be ideal for, sen-
ior citizen acitivites, Friedan


offered.
Just a few blocks away, an entirely
new subdividion is under construc-
tion. Paved streets with curbs and
gutters along with street lights will
be featured in Cascade Park. Just a
stone's throw from the new library
and park, the homes on one side will
sell in the $300,000 range and
across the street in the Villages,
homes will begin around $75,000.
Havana insisted, and got, the devel-
opers to put in city- approved infrac-
ture before they -were allowed to
build. The Villages will have 75
units on 25 acres, including a hold-
ing pond.
"You can't tell me that the devel-
bpers won't do what they're sup-
posed to do. If they want to build
here, we have to hold them account-
able," Dixon said.
In Quincy, the tour bus occupants
looked at blighted properties where
homes have been abandoned, are
overgrown with brush or have been
burned out. And again, the county-
wide problem of heirs property.
"The county can't build all of the
houses we need. The county can't
provide all of the infrastructure, but
what we can and should do is part-
ner with the municipalities and
make it happen for some of our citi-
zens," Dixon said.


Fighting
Continued from Page 1
We don't. know the name of the
other," McSwain said.
"They (gangs) are causing quite a
commotion in the community and a
headache for law enforcement offi-
cers and we 'have to put a stop to it
before somebody is badly hurt or
killed," he said.
This past weekend McSwain said
a group of young boys, who have
not been associated with an organ-
ized gang, were out riding in the
back of a pickup truck when they
happened upon a birthday party at
the Kelly-Campbell Center on 4th
Street in Quincy.
"The kid's parents were there but
the boys started a fight. There were
about four or five involved. One kid
who was trying to break it up, came
away with a black eye, before we
. could get there. The ones who


started it all were gone, but we know
who they are and I have six warrants
ready to be signed," he said Mon-
day morning. Three others were
jailed last Friday night for fighting.
Early Monday morning officers
were dispatched to East Gadsden
High School to help break up a fight
involving multiple students that
resulted in several suspensions.
And, McSwain said, officers are
called to Carter-Parramore Academy
two to three times per week to break
up fights. The school board placed
students labeled disciplinary. prob-
lems there this year.
"We need to look at this problem
seriously. It's not at the level of tele-
vision, but the activity is growing,"
he said, adding, "I'm going to make
as much noise as I can about this
problem. I'm calling on everybody.,
The clergy just talk and talk. and
they haven't done a thing. We (law
enforcement) haven't done so hot.
either," he said.
"Somebody is supposed to be
responsible for these young fellas. If
the parents can't do it that's when
civil authority comes in. We don't
.want to fill the jails with them, but
something has to be done, We have
to change their way. of thinking
because they are going to get out of
jail and be .right back amongst us,"
he said.
Last year law enforcement officers
Attempted to meet with parents of
juveniles who. were suspected of
fighting and flirting with gang activ-
ity. "When we tried to call meetings,
the parents wouldn't come. Maybe
they are afraid of them and want us
to lock them up, I don't know what's
the problem with the parents. The
police don't have all the answers.
It's going to take a concerted effort
because we can't keep populating
Florida's prisons," he said.
McSwain said that he is consider-
ing bringing in someone from the
outside who has. experience in deal-
ing with gangs, gang behavior .and
gang-related activity. "People have
been successful in tackling this
problem. We may need to get some-
body in here and draw on that expe-
rience. The gangs have begun
recruiting from all over the county.
There is a lot of disruption going
* on," he said.


On any given day anyone riding
through the county can happen upon
five or ten young men loitering
under shade trees in someone's yard.
"There was a time when old men sat
around talking about their lives and
what they have done. Now we have
young men sitting around and many
of them are think of things to do to
others," he said.


Stabbing
Continued from Page 1
himself once in the chest, was
admitted to the hospital with non-
life: threatening injuries. He was
released Molnday and now sits in the
Wakulla County jail charged with
second degree murder.
According to the Wakulla County
sheriff's office, "Daniel Chavez
stated that he came down to Wakulla
County in the hopes that his wife
would return with him. After she
refused Daniel Chavez stated that he
,lost control and removed a knife
form his pants pocket, and stabbed
her twice in the chest."
The report said the couple fought
Friday, and Kathy Chavez left the
home in Quincy that she shared with
Daniel Chavez and went to live with
a friend and former employer.
Chavez's friend told authorities that
bet).een 9:15. and 9:30 Chavez
arrived without warning. The friend,
who had limited contact with Daniel
Chavez. "did not let him in the home
as we fell uneasy about him," the
report stated.
Kathy, Chavez went outside to talk
with him. the two spoke in Spanish
and after several minutes the argu-
,ment became heated and voices
were raised. Kathy's friend then
called the Wakulla County sheriff's
office to have Daniel removed from
her property. As the argument grew
louder, Kathy's friend told authori-
ties that shd saw .Daniel grab Kathy
by the arm and slab her in the chest.
Another witness said he heard Kath\
scream to Daniel "you stabbed me."
The couple married earlier dus
year on February 9. At least one
other time Kathy confided that
Daniel "slapped" her and she went
that time to the Medart home of her
friend.

PLEASE TAKE NOTICE
that a Declaraiion of Taking
has been tiled in ihe above
styled cause by. the
Petitioner, Florida Power
Corporation, for condemna-
tion of permanent facilities
easements and danger tree
easements, said property
being located in Gadsden
County, Florida, and more
particularly described in the
Petition files herein for the
purpose of constructing a
new 115kV transmission
line in Gadsden County.
This transmission line will
be constructed from the
Company's Liberty County
substation to the proposed
new Atwater substation to
be located in Gadsden
County Florida, said trans-
mission line being a dis-
tance of approximately 20
miles. The subject transmis-
sion line will enhance and
maintain the reliability and
integrity of the ,Company's
electric system and improve
Ihe availability ol low-cosI
electric energy within ihe
Stale of Florida.
The .sujecl': Transm.issirn
line is deemed necessary
by the Company's projec-
tion analysis in order to ade-
quately serve the residen-
tial, commercial and indus-
trial customer load growth
that is developing in Liberty
and Gadsden Counties and
to enhance the integrity of'
the electrical transmission
network in this area. 'In the
absence of the construction
of the proposed transmis-
sion line to provide addition-
al power, the reliability of the
electrical grid may be sub-
stantially impacted. The
subject line is designed to
minimize the risk of
brownouts and blackouts
that may occur during sys-
tem contingencies, outages
or other failures. The sub-
ject transmission line will
allow the Company to pro-
vide additional transmission
capacity and support,
enhance its capacity to
operate an integrated elec-
tric power system and per-
form its statutory obligation
of public service as required
by. Chapter 366, Florida
Statutes and the Service
Rules and Regulations pre-:
scribed by the Florida Public
Service Commission, said
property being located in
Gadsden County, Florida,
and more particularly
described as follows, to wit:

24 Gadsden County Times September 22, 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.
