Neighbors

opposed to


liquor store

by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

It seems that one liquor store is
enough for the people who live near
the Florida-Georgia line. Tuesday
night, during the regular meeting of
the Board of County Commission-
ers, several
of them
made it clear D eer
that another
liquor store R idg
is not wel- Ridge

Seighbor- hearing
hood.
Nader Tala ...See Page 3
came to ask
the BOCC
for approval for conceptual/prelimi-
nary site plan for Borderline
Liquors on the east side of U.S.
Highway 27. He told commissioners
lhat his biggest opponent to the
liquor store is a person who owns
and operates a liquor store about a
half mile away,from his proposed
-site.
S"I don't want another liquor store
within 500 feet of my home," said
;Jan Rogers. He said that the com-
missioners should grant the request
if there is a urgent and pressing
need. I see no urgent or pressing
need. We have 75 signatures here on
a petition from people who are
opposed to the liquicr store," he
said.
Another of Rogers' neighbors,
Sarah Adams, cited the dangerous
intersection as reason enough to
deny the request. That coupled with
Joseph Thomas' concerns for crime
and increased walking traffic was
enough for the commissioners to
turn down the request unanimously.
"One liquor store is enough for
any community. You have to be
concerned that some communities
don't need to get the worse of the
worse," said Commission Chairman
Ed Dixon. Commissioner Sterling
Watson agreed, and said, "Nothing
positive comes from liquor stores
and jooks. It does not promote the
health and safety of the citizens of
that community."

Sheriff Morris Young struggles with a budget shortfall of $265,000, and is hoping for state and federal
funds to help the county meet its law enforcement needs.



Ofrria6) Mtoney


Overcrowded jail shocking budget, sheriff says;

health, food costs, salaries need to be addressed.


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

Less than a year has passed since Morris Young
became Gadsden County's sheriff. But hr: i- fj.cin onic.
of the toughest challenges ever: a $265.000 shortfall in
his budget.
Young can point to all of the reason the money is
coming up short: increases in inmate medical expenses,
increase in the cost of meals for inmates, the rising .
cost and consumption of the jail's utilities and the cost
associated with making the transition from the old to
the new administration. Most, but not all, of the money
problems are directly linked to the overcrowded jail
facility, Young wrote in a letter to County Manager
Marlon Brown asking the county for the money.
The jail was built to house 150 inmates but the usual
number hovers around 220 almost daily. Some week-
ends the number can go up to 250. Young says he
looks at the inmate list daily to see who can be
released.
"Medical expenses are eating us up," Young said
Tuesday morning. Over 80 percent of the inmates
receive some sort of medical care. Last year the cost
of inmate care alone was $314,816. As of September
20, 2005, the current inmate medical care cost was
$348,853. In the budget this year only $109,900 was


set aside for inmate medical expenses. Young's
attempts to cut back on medicines by going to another
pharmaceutical company and ordering generic drugs
has realized some savings but not nearly enough.
5 .1, _,f Ithc mLedicines for inmates can run from
$2,000 to $4,000 a month. Drugs for inmates iih
mental disorders are e\pensi\e as \%ell. If the) have to
go to the hospital the cost shoots up. An inmate with
HIV can cost the county $1,200 per month in medicine
alone," he said. And with the facility so overcrowded,
someone who comes in with the flu can cause a fnajor
problem. "Everybody's going to catch it and we have
to treat them. They won't take care of themselves
when they're out on the street, but when they come to
us we have to give them medical care," Young said.
Since Young took office, one sick inmate has cost the
county $37,000, another has cost $23,000, another
$22,000, another $15,000 and another $10,000.
Whether inmates are sick or not they have to eat and
the cost of food is eating right through Young's budget.
In one year, the cost to feed inmates in the county jail
has gone from $210,459 to $242,495. The amount bud-
geted for food was $31,946 less than needed. "I'm
looking for another source to prepare inmate meals.
I've looked at other counties to see what they are

Letter on Page 4

from "Mo" Cox

by BYRON SPIRES
Times Staff Writer

Two directors of the City of Quincy
have tendered their resignations.
Marvin "Mo" Cox, utilities director
of eight years turned in his resigna-
tion last Thursday. His official last
day at work will be October 14, Cox
said.
Cox has been with the city for 29
years and utilities director since
1998. He started in 1976 as a
draftsman under city engineer Ray-
mond Hurst. When Hurst retired
Cox stepped in as city engineer. Cox
held several positions in engineer-
ing services and the utilities depart-
ment before becoming a department
director.
Cox's resignation comes directly
on the heels of last week's city com-
mission meeting. The commission
voted down a bid to provide city
utility employees uniform services.
According to Cox the bid would
have given each employee 11 uni-
forms that included a state required
fire retardant shirt and jeans.
There was a considerable amount
of debate over the $15,000 bid and
pro. idingi city employees with uni-
forms and cleaning services,
Commissioners Keith Dowdell and
Derrick Elias said they did not want
the city to provide employees with
uniforms.
The bid was voted down with
Dowdell, Elias and mayor Sherrie
Taylor voting against the measure.
Taylor did state that she had no
problem with the city providing the
shirts, but did not like providing
jeans. She stated that the commis-
sion would revisit the issue at the
next city commission meeting.
Commissioners Finley Cook and
Andy Gay voted for the bid.
Cox said about his resignation that
he no longer felt that he fit into the
city's system and that he had
become very uncomfortable with
Sthe direction he saw the city headed.


He said he was concerned with
issues that were bogging down pro'-
duction in his department.
"We've got a government way tooi
big for the population of the ciiy,"
Cox added. Cox said that he has run
the gamut of emotions over his deci-1
sion to resign.
"I really hate
leaving the
people I work
directly with
behind." He
added that, "it
was time to
move on." Cox
said that he
had no imme-
diate plans
after leaving
the city. Neva Reed
Finance direc-
tor Neva Reed tendered her resigna-;
tion last week as well. Reed has,
come under the microscope of thei
city commission for the past 'year
concerning the 2004 audit and heil
department's problems.
Reed said at last week's workshops
with the city's
auditors, Wat-
son and Rice,
that one of the
problems with
completing the
audit on time
stemmed from
the city's bank
reconciliations
being behind.
Reed said at
that time that,
she had repri-
manded her staff Marvin "Mo" Cox
concerning the
problem and set into place measures
that would keep the problem from
occurring again.
Reed did not respond to two phone
messages requesting comments
from her about her resignation.
According to city manager Willie
Earl Banks, Reed's official last day,
will be Oct 18. When asked if he
would like to respond to the two;
directors' resignations, Banks said
he did not at this time have any'
comments.


Issue not all black and white to some EGHS white students I


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
There are more than 1120 students
enrolled at East Gadsden High School, the
county's largest public school. The school's
racial makeup is majority African-Ameri-
can, followed by approximately 200 His-
panic students and about 20 white students.
I Many of the white students attend public
schools in Leon and Jackson counties while
others attend private schools in Gadsden
County as well as Leon County.
' When requesting permission to transfer
students out of the county, some parents
say they work in Tallahassee and want their
children close to them; others say their
children have medical problems. Many
with smaller children say they don't have
anyone at home when school is out. One
parent, James Burkett, told the school
board last week that he wanted to move his


children because they were simply over-
whelmed by the number of black students
in the school district.
When public schools were integrated
back in the 1970s in Gadsden County,
many white students attended public
schools. Over the
years that has all "You ougJ

TCC Quincy House celebrates its first birthday


by BYRON SPIRES
Times Staff Writer

Tallahassee Community College's
Quincy House now has a year of
service in Gadsden County under its
belt and things are popping.
"A year ago our biggest problem
was getting people in here, now it is
finding space to put everybody,"
Chris Hansen, director of the Quin-
cy House said. Quincy House is cur-
rently providing a number of pro-
grams and classes to the Gadsden
County public. Among those are
computer classes, Spanish classes,
and tutoring.
Hansen was pleased with Quincy
House's first year and especially
excited about the partnership with
Communities In Schools of Gads-
den County an after school tutoring
program.
CIS of Gadsden County is part CIS
of Florida, a 17-county initiative to
connect needed resources with
schools to help young people suc-
cessfully learn, stay in school, grad-
uate, and prepare for life. CIS of
Florida has provided a grant for
$25,000 to kick start the local pro-
gram. That money has been matched
with contributions from CIS of
Gadsden, the Gadsden County
School Board, and the Quincy
department of leisure services.
Quincy commissioners Andy Gay
and Finley Cook also contributed to
the program.
LaTrenda Gainous-Goldwire shares
the duties of executive director of
CIS of Gadsden with her duties in
parent services for the Gadsden
County School board.
This summer the partnership pro-
vided both academic and sports
activities for local students in Quin-
cy recreation department's Summer
program. The partnership helped
double the number of participants in
this year's summer activities,
Hansen said.
Last Thursday after school Quincy
House was packed with local stu-
dents being tutored for their upcom-
ing FCAT test. The students were
there as part of Quincy House and
CIS's pilot. program ,"Innovation,
Academy .


paid for their services. TCC also
provides four students to help stu-
dents with their studies.
Milton said he would like to see
every student not already involved
in an after school program to be a
part of Innovation Academy.
He hopes that one day the academy
will be a school district-wide pro-
gram.


Gainous-Goldwire said that CIS of
Gadsden will expand its scope of
services next year to include more
schools and students.
As for TCC's Quincy House,
Hansen said TCC will continue to
assist programs like Innovation
Academy that help Gadsden Coun-
ty's students achieve their goals.
"We are excited about our partner-


ship and we know it will be benefit;
cial to local students.
If you would like more information
concerning the Quincy House's pro-
grams you can contact them at 875-
9231. For more information about
CIS of Gadsden County contact
Gainous-Goldwire at 627-9651 exC

Communities In Schools of Gadsden County board chairman Roger
Milton, background, and CIS tutors Ashara Mills foreground and
Keysha Hopkins, right, are shown working with elementary students.


The Academy, a brainchild of the
local CIS board, is being spearhead-
ed by Gadsden County School
Board member and CIS of Gads-
den's chairman Roger Milton.
Milton said the academy started
with 30 students from Chatta-
hoochee Elementary School's fourth
and fifth grades and fifteen high
school tenth graders. The students
are helped with FCAT preparations
that include studying math, reading
and writing. In addition the students
are helped with their home work.
Milton said the Innovation Acade-
my was modeled after a program
Sheanlika Wiggins, a Chattahoochee
Elementary teacher, initiated in her
school. Chattahoochee Elementary
moved from a double "F" school to
a "C" school last year.
The idea Milton said was to bring
the county's FCAT scores up.
eAs yon ftt we, th ae not done
well on first irhe tenth grade FCAT


tests," Milton said.
One of the prerequisites to gradua-
tion is that a student pass the FCAT.
Students start taking their final
FCAT in the tenth grade. They have
two shots at the test each year.
The academy, Milton said, will
increase the students grades. "When
this works we plan to expand it into
the entire school system," Milton
said. Milton's goal is that 80 percent
of the tenth grade pass the FCAT.
The academy has already started to
expand, Milton said. Currently there
is an Innovation Academy set up in
Havana Elementary School.
Milton was proud of the progress
the academy has seen so far. He
attributes the success to the highly
qualified teachers the academy has
tapped to help students. In addi-
tion to teachers, Milton said that the
academy uses high-achieving high

Deer Ridge homeowners stalled again


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

Minutes before a hearing into
the problems at the Deer Ridge
Estates subdivision, attorneys
for the developer and the home-
owners asked for and got per-
mission to try to straighten out
their problems to the satisfac-
lion of the homeowners by Fri-
.lay afternoon.
: Commissioners were clearly
frustrated because a special
eneeting had been called to dis-
cuss the issues. David Theri-
aque said his client, Dan
McClellan, wanted to negotiate
end try to work out a settle-
inent. Commissioners were
asked to give both sides thirty
minutes to talk and re-convene
it 6:30 p.m.


"I want to hear it. I'm tired
of waiting. These people need
some relief. We need to do our
jobs," said Commissioner Ster-
ling Watson. "What can they
possibly accomplish in thirty
minutes that they haven't
accomplished in all this time?"
he asked.
County Attorney Thornton
Williams said some new devel-
opments had occurred and
another offer had been made.
The attorney for the homeown-
ers, Rick Benton, has not had
the opportunity to read the
developer's offer.
All agreed that the litigation
is not in the best interest of the
homeowners or the county. "We
have many miles to go before
the matter is solved. The devel-
oper has reached a consent


agreement with the Department
of Environmental Affairs," Ben-
ton said.
Many of the complaints sur-
rounding the development were
generated by DEP In some
spots the drainage is so poor,
homeowners say their lawn-
mowers sink into the water-
logged earth. Standing water
has created a mosquito prob-
lem. "The water, they said, is
standing so long in ditches that
fish are growing in them. "The
ditches in front of my house are
breeding fish and water fleas,"
said Kim Bishop. To prove her
point she brought a jar of water
with minnows and water fleas
that. she said she scooped up on
the way to the meeting,
SThe homeowners weren't
happy about the delay either.


lelissa \Vergeson holds up a jar oi'ater from the ditch n front of her
neighbor's home. It contained tiny fish and-water-fleas .


"We just want what we paid for.,
We're not happy but we will all
try to be adults about this," said
Dixie Lord.

Twanja Bethea is worried
about her health in the house.
"The stress of all of this has
aggravated my medical prob-


lems. If I get bitten by a mos-
quito, it could be serious," said
the disabled veteran. She said
she was told by Stan Baggett,
the person McClellan sent to
make repairs at her home, that
he would not live there. She
said the frist time she saw
McClellan was last Friday.
But Watson was not at all
sold on the idea of the lawyers
getting together with the home-
owners. "What difference does
it make? This is between the
county and the developer. This
is a county thing, not the home-
owners," he said.
Reluctantly the homeowners, on
the advice of their attorney, and
the county commissioners, on
the advice of their attorney,
agreed to wait until Friday to
see what kind of agreement the
county, the developer and the
homeowners can come to,
again.


Gretna police chief still a question
ib


BYRON SPIRES
Times Staff Writer

SThe City of Gretna has a new
police chief or do they?
That was the focal point of dis-
Cussion at Tuesday night's city
meeting.
: Commissioner David Sailor
ranted to know who interim city
tnanager Dianne Formman rec-
ommended as the city's new
police chief.
t Sailor said that the issue had
gone on long enough and the city
heeded a police chief.
City attorney Harold Knowles
interceded and commented that
Formman as interim city man-
ager would be the one who actu-
I


ally hired the new chief.
Knowles said that at a previous
meeting the commission had
stated that Formman would
review the applicants and then
inform the commission about her
decision. Knowles added that the
city's charter also stated that the
city manager would hire the
police chief.
Formman said that she had not
completed her evaluation of the
two candidates and needed some
additional time to review per-
sonal references. She added that
some of the references had not
responded and she needed time
to follow up on those. Each
applicant had to provide nine ref-
erences on the application.


Formman did say that both
candidates had passed back-
ground checks.
Sailor was adamant about
making a decision on the police
chief and made a motion that
Formman choose between the
t\\o applicants.
SThe motion carried with com-
missioner Jarvis Alls, Sailor and
mayor Helen Franks voting for,
and commissioners Anthony
Baker and Nadine Smith voting
against.
Formman immediately
announced that she had chosen
Furman Richardson as Gretna's
new police chief.
Sailor was not happy with
Formman's choice and said that


Richardson did not have the
management background that the
other candidate had.
He was again reminded by

Formman immediately

announced that she

had chosen Furman

Richardson as

Gretna's new police

chief.

Knowles that the hiring decision
was in the hands of Formman
and she had announced her deci-
sion.


No more discussion about
Richardson's taking the position
or a time period before he would
take the reins of the Gretna
police department was had.

In other business the com-
missioners agreed to renew
financial consultant Bill Bogan's
contract. Bogan is in the process
of catching up the city's delin-
quent audits.
Bogan told commissioners that
the 2002-2003 audits Were within
40 days of being completed. He
added, "Hopefully we'll get some
type of opinion on the audit."
Commissioners approved
two pieces of property to be pre-
sented to the county commission
as potential sites for the proposed
new Gretna fire station. The
commissioners ranked the prop-


erty and stipulated that their first
choice was next to the city's pub-
lic works department a block off
of US 90. Commissioner Baker, a
Quincy fireman, said that the
location would be near the center
of town and close to the city hall.
He felt it would also be a safe
location to keep the city's fire
trucks.
Commissioner Sailor made
a motion that the city re-advertise
for a city manager. Sailor said
the city had been too long with-
out a full time manager. Sailor's
motion died for lack of a second.

Stewart Street bridge contractor hired

I T i : . .* -'. .^ . . / .* .S


,By- BYRON SPIRES,
Times Staff Writer

Monday afternoon in a special
called meeting Quincy commis-
sioners awarded the winning bid
of $225,985 to repair the Stew-
art Street bridge to North
Florida Asphalt. North Florida
Asphalt will complete the
majority of the construction of
the bridge with the city taking
responsibility for the demolition
of the old bridge and several
other activities.
City purchasing director Anto-
nio Jefferson told commission-
ers that the city will receive
help with the demolition from
the county's road and bridge
department.
Robert Presnell, director of the
county's road and bridge depart-
ment, was on hand and told the
commissioners that once an
inter-local agreement between
the county and the city was
signed he would have his crews
start to work on the demolition
of the bridge. Presnell said there
would be a charge per hour for
the service based on the equip-


ment the count\ used-at the site.
He said the agreement would be
similar to that already infuse by
several city's that use the
county's services to maintain
dirt streets.

By choosing to

share in the work

load with the

county, the repair

cost of the bridge,

Jefferson stated,

would save the city

an estimated

$73,000.

Commissioners were stunned
by the bids they received for the
cost of repairing the bridge. The
lowest bid for repair was
$299,300. Originally George
and Hutcheson Engineering


- Inc., the engineering firm the
city hired to develop the bid
package, had given the commis-
sioners an estimated cost of
$130,675 to repair the bridge.'
The problem with the rise in
'bid prices Jeff Sprouse, a repre-
sentative of George and Hutche-
son said, was post-Hurricane
Katrina prices. He said the esti-
mates were figured before Kat-
rina and now material prices
have skyrocketed.
Commissioner Derrick Elias
asked Commissioner Finley
Cook, who is in the construc-
tion business, his feelings about
the high repair cost, Cook said
the prices were not going to get
any lower.
Commissioners were given
several options to repair the
bridge which included accepting:
the lowest bid, starting the bid
process over, or doing the work
themselves which still included.
hiring a contractor to install cul-
verts.
By choosing to share in the
work load with the county, the
repair cost of the bridge, Jeffer-
son stated, would save the city


an estimated $73,000.
Presnell said that the county
could start its work as soon as
the inter-local agreinment was
completed. A repiceentaLue of
North Florida Asphalt stated'
that he would be able to start
two weeks after the contract
with the city was signed.
Commissioners where con-
cerned about how the bridge


would be paid for, considering
the unexpected rise in cost.
Jefferson said that $132,000
had been set aside in this year's
budget r the bridge. City
Manager Willie Earl Banks
added that an additional
$100,000 that had been desig-
nated in the new budget for
infrastructure review could be
used for the bridge as well. The


remaining cost, Banks said,
would come from the contin-
gency fund.
Jefferson-was told by Mayor
Sherrie Ta\lor' to continue' t6
solicit funds from FEMA. '
FEMA was contacted and an
application for funds to help
with'the repair of the bridge
was sent to the organization. So
far no funds are forthcoming.

PINIONS


finding Roads


By: Byron Spires tsl

This may affect you more than you realize


What do \ou expect from your local government?
I have been asking myself that question, as I am
sure a lot of other people have over the past month.
Especially as %we have seen millions of dollars
worth of budgets flash across the front pages of the
paper.
It is a question that sounds simple in concept. but
in reality it is a \erN difficult question to answer.
The problem with \\hat wte expect from local go\-
ernment is that it has a direct correlation to \that
local governments spend.
In other words if \ve want roads, the government
has to pay for roads. If we want police protection,
the government has to pay for police protection. If
we want a health department, government has to
pay for a health department. If we want a recreation
department. government has to pay for it. Whatever
service te want government to provide for us. the
government has to pay for it.
And e\en though some believe that everything
from government is free. the exact opposite is true.
In order for government to provide us \with what
we want. it has to generate money. Remember, go\ -
ernment still has to pay.
Local governments generate money from their cit-
izens.
Some local governments can also generate income
\with enterprises like water, sewer and electricity.
But, ulimately. the citizens still pays for services
that include the cost of the enterprise, the expenses
to operate the enterprise and a profit that is used to
help operate the government.
In addition local governments receive additional
income from state sales tax revenues. Local govern-
ments share in that tax money based on their pppu_-
lations.
The one tax that ov\enrunents le\ Ion, their citnzens
that most people are farmliar \ ith is property taxes.
That is the tax I \\ant to talk about in this \week's
column.
There \\as a time in Gadsden County \\hen only a
fetw property owners paid property taxes. The figure
that sticks out to me comes out of the 1970's when
about 26 percent of the property o\w ners in Gadsden
County paid all of the property taxes. Remember
those were the days of only a $5,000 homestead
exemption.
Well. it is 2005 and that figure has been too long a
figment in some people's imagination. It is no
longer take from the rich and give to the poor.
Today over 75 percent of the property o\\ners pay
taxes. According to Gadsden County s tax collector.
Dale Summerford. the average tax bill in this
county now hovers just below $300. Those figures
include the current $25,000 homestead exemption.
Last year. retiring county tax appraiser George
Hamilton. announced that the county's real estate
and tangible property values \went over $1 billion.
Clay VanLandingham. the county's current tax
appraiser,' said that another $75 million had been
added to the rolls this year. In the past VanLanding-
ham said the county has been experiencing about a
five percent increase in the tax roll. This year's rep-
resents about a 7.5 percent increase.
Add that to the recent rise in home building in the
count) and you can see that there is a pattern begin-
ning to unfold. As property values continue to esca-
late so do property\ taxes.
VanLandingham said that the tax base is expanding


Cox resignation letter

Dear Editor:

I am requesting that the Gads-
den County Times print this por-
tion of my resignation so that I
may be assured that anyone who
may read this will not confuse
my leaving and the reasons with
anything else that is currently
going on in or around the City.
"This has to be the hardest and
most disheartening decision that
I have ever had to make, but after
last night's meeting, I have come
to the realization that I cannot in
good conscience continue to


at about the same rate as the number of tax payers
are being added.
So what does this mean to you. the tax payor.
Well. let's see.
First and foremost. you need to make sure that
those that run your government are ste\ yards of your
money. Because it is your hard earned money
remember.
There are a lot of elderly people in this country
remember 75 percent of the property owners are
now paying taxes) that are on fixed incomes.
A $300 tax bill is hard to pay, especially \when you
add that to this w inter's rising fuel cost they tell us
that is heading our \\ay
The truth is that those who cannot stand to have it
taken from them are the ones that are affected the
most by an ill-run local government.
There has been a lot of apathy in the past toward
our local governments and how they are run. "It
ain't worth getting involved" I've heard countless
people say over the last six years.
I've got a feeling, no\w that it may affect some peo-
ple's pocket books, it may be a little different story.
While we are on the subject of accountability let
me give you some numbers that may be of interest.
Local governments lety their taxes based on a mill-
age rate or in layman's terms a percentage per
$1000 dollars of value. The state caps those rates at
10 mills per 1000 dollars of value.
This sear's millage rates in Gadsden County were:
the county at 10 mills lat maximum), Quincy at 2.75
mills. School Board at 8.12 mills. Gretna at 4.55
mills. Nlid\\ay at 4.30 mills. Chattahoochee at .082.
Havana at 2.0 mills and Greensboro at 3.0 mills.
i!bhout, making it real complicated,. b.ecaus.,pr0p--,
erty values are rising, keeping the same village rate
actually generates more taxes that it did the year
before. Midi\Na and Chattahoochee were the only
governments in the county to roll back their village
rates so that they would not collect any more taxes
than the \ear before.
I'll let you decide if you think you are getting your
money's worth out of your local government.
There are two ways to combat the rising taxes or as
some would sa \ our shrinking pocket book.
First. there could be a change in the homestead
exemption laws like adding another $25.000. It
failed at the last election to earner an\ momentum.
The second and easiest is to become a squeaky
wheel at local government meetings and stop being
apathetic about \\what is going on.
I asked earlier \what did you expect from your local
government and this may be the best answer I can
give \ou. Demand that your local government han-
dle your tax dollars wisely and uot spend them on
personal agendas. Remember it is not their money.
it belongs to the taxpayers.
Over the )ears I have seen hundreds of meetings
and \ watched as people paraded before local elected
officials upset over issues ranging from property
zoning to personal vendettas.
As of today I have not seen a soul complain about
their rising taxes or ask. "'why can't my taxes go
dow\ n?"
It is coming, I'm sure of it. I don't know at \\hat
point taxpayers will expect more from their local
governments, but it will happen.
So. all of you elected officials out there be fore-
\\arned and remember this. "I told you so."


work for the leadership that we
have had in control at the City for
sometime. When decisions are
made such as the one I faced at
the end of the meeting last con-
cerning uniforms, I have to real-
ize that our Commissioner's do
not care about anything but fur-
thering their personal agendas at
the expense of employees who
keep this City going on a day to
day basis. The decision on the
uniforms is not merely a differ-
ence of opinion but a total disre-
gard for those employees and
their well being not to mention a
slap in the face to the morale of
an entire group. Last night it was
the Utilities Department, but
everyone knows that some other
Department will be next.
This decision is not being made
lightly or without clarity of
thought. The burden of my
responsibilities have always been
accepted as a challenge as well as
a privilege. The hope was to


appear at the end of the tunnel
with a job done well to the bet-
terment of the citizens of the City
of Quincy as a whole. Either time
has passed me by or I did not
learn my lessons well, it now
seems that the good of one at the
expense of the whole is more
politically correct than the sacri-
fice of the one for the good of the
whole. This is not what I con-
sider to be, government's role and
I cannot continue to create rules
and provide services to support
individuals at the expense of the
City's wellbeing.
You, as City Manager, must
share some of the burden of my
decision. I have supported you
from the time you were a rehab
specialist, Public Works Director
and even your appointment as the
Manager because I have always
considered you as a friend and
someone who felt in many ways
the same as me about what our
role was here. But since you


became the City Manager, a
change has occurred in your atti-
tude and that change has had
drastic effects on my morale.
Believe me; I have seen this
change take place in other City
Managers in the past as well as
you have. These changes take
place \erN subtly and before you
know it. you no longer are able to
make effective decisions based
on know ledge but decisions are
made to ease pressures and
relieve stress. At times, I have
myself found doing the same
thing because I rationalize that
maybe a picularticular decision is not
worth the battle that will ensue
after it is made. Therefore, that is
a major part of the reason for my
decision because I have come to
realize that it is better to give up
something that I love than to
become a part of the problem that
eventually \\ill impact the citi-
zens of Quincy.
In addition. I took this job over
seven years and control of this
Department has been slowly
taken away but the responsibili-
ties have remained. I understand
fully the need for checks and bal-
ances, how ever, when I no longer
have control over issues that
affect our responsibilities, some-
thing is wrong with that picture.
Then to add to that, we are
responsible for all paper work
that goes to departments such as
Human Resources. Finance,
General Ser\ices and your
Department. Our staff has not
increased over this period, yet
the .workload has become over-
whelming. Improvements arei!
fine but the\ should reduce,
workload d not increase it to sat-'
isfy someone's need for author-
ity.
There ha\e been many wonder-
ful people I have worked with
and for over the past thirty years.
There are a great number of won-
derful citizens that I have been
able to help during that period
and a great deal of warm rela-
tionships developed. These peo-
ple are the backbone of our com-
munity and are the ones that take
responsibility for their own.
Unfortunately, these people share
in the burden of what goes on
no\\ a days. They have lost their
voice of ho\\ this government
should be run by bowing to the
people \ho always have their
hand out. They certainly have the
ability to take this government
back but it will take concerted
effort from both black and white.
I do not foresee this happening
until things really crash and
those times have not gotten here
\et. Again I say, this government
needs to get back to promoting
the good of the whole not the
good of the one and knowing the
difference between the two.
I also accept my. portion of
blame for the lack of a trusting
relationship between myself,
you, and the Commission. I keep
asking myself what part I had in
furthering the, distrust that exists
between all involved. I always
prided myself on being honest
and forthright with all I have
worked, but yet it seems that dis-
trust remains or even continues
to grow like a cancer. With all
that we have faced in the past
years, I find myself feeling more
and more like a fighter who has
thrown all the punches he has in
his body and yet his opponent
keeps getting stronger. It is time
to lay down and that is something.
I said I would never do. The only
regret I have with this decision is
the men and women of the Utili-
ties Department that I will be


leaving behind. This is a very
good group whose sole purpose
is to serve the people of Quincy


night or day. They need someone
that will look after them and pro-
tect their backs as they perform
their duties. When comes to
crunch time, these men and
women are the ones that will
save the day."
Let there be no mistake of my
reasons for being with City for
thirty years. I loved working at
the City and being able to assist
in the betterment of our commu-
nity. But personal agendas by
both majorities of the City and
County Commissions is taking
this County to a place no one is
going to want to go. This com-
munity, both white and black, has
allowed the unfairness and bla-
tant disregard of citizens and
employees of both governments
to continue. I could no longer be
a part of such disregard.
There is an answer to this dis-
ease and it is very simply getting
involved in this process and
telling these leaders that you as
voters will not tolerate these
arrogant actions anymore. You
do that by voting these people
out of office when they do not
respond to the good of the com-
munity as a whole. That is the
only way government can work,
it has got to be based on integrity
and truth, it has to prove every
day that is working for the good
of everyone, not just a chosen
few.

oe0 -u:p 1 j'u'ora1 .l31aoq -l ,

Dear Editor, '

Permit me to, first and fore-
most, sincerely thank you for let-
ting me be a part of your man-
agement team since January
2001. It has truly been one of the
most challenging experiences I
have had in my entire career.
Effective. January 9, 2006, I
resign my position as Finance
Director due to health reasons.
To highlight some of the
accomplishments we have made
over the past six years, lets me
know that our hard working
efforts in spite of sickness and
pain, high turnovers, inexperi-
ence staff (due to staff.being new
and salaries offered too low),
high expectations, goals and
objectives with timeframes in
some cases, that were unrealistic,
overall, we were successful and
we contributed to the City of
Quincy becoming a Premier city.

Five arrested in two drug bust


by ALICE DU PONT
Times editor

Four Gadsden County men
and a woman were arrested last
Friday in two separate incidents
with multiple drug charges
stemming from a month-long
drug investigation by the Gads-
den County Sheriff's Depart-
nrent Drug Unit. The Quincy
Police Department assisted in
the arrests. In both cases, the
arrests were made after search
warrants were issued.
It was seven o'clock in the
morning when deputies arrived
at the Atlanta Street home of
Tim Lawrence looking for him.
They were handed a bonus when
they found 28-year-old Jimmie
Donaldson, Jr. asleep on the


front porch. "Donaldson was
wanted by the drug unit for pre-
vious drug sales and violation of
probation for armed robbery,"
said Sgt. Jim Corder of the
GCSO Drug Unit.
Inside Donaldson's pockets
Corder said they found a pill
bottle that contained 130 pieces
of, crack cocaine. He estimated
the street value of the drugs at
$3,000.
Once inside the house, Tim
Lawrence, 34,,and his brother,
32-year-old. Willie Lawrence,
were located.. Tim Lawrence
also had a pill bottle in his
pocket that contained several
pieces of crack cocaine. Also in
the house were several items of
drug paraphernalia that are con-
sistent with the "cooking" and


distribution of crack cocaine.
"In the house we found rifles
and shotguns as well as mari-
juana. Tim Lawrence was also
charged with two counts of sale
and possession with intent to
distribute crack cocaine, posses-
sion of marijuana, and maintain-
ing a dwelling where drugs are
sold.
Two hours later and several
miles away the drug unit served
another warrant at, the home of
Dale Daniels, 43, and Brenda
Wright,42. The pair live at #9
Sarge's Trailer Park on Pat
Thomas Parkway. Corder said
that during the investigation
members of the drug unit made a
series of marijuana purchases
from Daniels.
"During the search we recov-


Maxine Waters to be in Quincy


By ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

Congresswoman Maxine
Waters (D-California) will be in
Gadsen County Sunday to
attend worship services at Mt.
Pilgrim Church on High Bridge
Road where her nephew, Mark
Wilkerson, is the minister. From
1:30 to 2:30 p.m. the City of
Quincy and the Gadsden County
School Board will host a recep-
tion in her honor at the board's


meeting room, 35 Martin Luther
King. Jr. Blvd. The public is
invited to attend the reception.
Waters is considered by many
to be one of the most powerful
women in American politics
today. She has gained a reputa-
tion as a fearless and outspoken
advocate for women, children,
people of color and the poor.
According to her official
biography, Waters was elected
in November 2004 to her eighth
term in the House of Represen-


tatives with .80 percent of the
votes in the 35th District of Cal-
ifornia. She represents a large
part of South Central Los
Waters as the chairperson of the
39-member Black Caucus
(1997-98). She has held the
influential leadership position
of Chief Deputy Whip of the
Democratic Party since the
106th Congress, and was named
co-chair of the powerful House
Democratic Steering Commit-
tee.


ered 156 baggies of marijuana
that were packaged for sale, a 12
gauge shotgun, and a loaded
rifle that contained a high capac-
ity magazine close to where
Daniels conducted drug sales,"
Corder said. Daniels, who is a.
convicted felon, was charged
with intent to distribute mari-
juana and possession of a
firearm by a convicted felon,
and maintaining a dwelling
where drugs are sold, stored,
and consumed.
Wright was charged with pos-
session with intent to distribute
marijuana and maintaining a
dwelling where drugs are sold,
stored, and consumed.
All five are currently in the
county jail. Corder said more
arrests are expected.
Anyone with information
regarding suspicious or drug
activity is asked to call Corder at
875-8847 or 395-4138.

She is a member of the House
Committee on Financial Ser-
vices and the ranking member
of its Subcommittee on Housing
and Community Opportunity.
She also serves on the Subcom-
mittee on Financial Institutions
and Consumer Credit and the
Subcommittee on Domestic and
International Monetary Policy,
Trade and Technology.
"This is a wonderful opportu-
nity for people here to meet
someone with a national reputa-
tion. such as the Congress-
woman," said Quincy's Mayor
Sherrie Taylor.

said the cafeteria will be deco-
rated New Orleans-style, jazz

chosen to honor the survivors of
Hurricane Katrina.


Guests are encouraged to put
on their best New Orleans
inspired costumes and come on
out to the school.

day. The times are on both days

by local talent and will have the
opportunity to participate in con-
tests.
"We will have special guests

business community.as well as
some state officials. This is a real
honor for us and we are just so
happy that we were chosen,"
Jackson said.

Gretna Presbyterian Church


celebrates 100th anniversary


On Sunday, Oct. 9 at 11 a.m. the
Gretna Presbyterian Church will cel-
ebrate 100 years of ministry.
Gretna Presbyterian Church began
its service to the Lord and to the
community with 21 members from
Quincy and outlying areas. As we
give thank.* for God'. direclioli over
these 'lwi.-'.,'Yer % \e v.ill take a
glimp-e .t our history as a people
and .t aj church, visualizing special
events and people. Our celebration
will conclude with a covered dish
lunch on the grounds.
The Gretna Presbyterian Church
was organized on Oct. 13, 1905, at a
revival meeting held at the Sunny
Dell Baptist Church in Gretna. In
1908 a tract of land was donated by
W.P. Humphrey to build a simple
meeting house. This became known
as the Gretna Presbyterian Church.
The steeple and bell were added to
the front in 1920 and over the years
a fellowship hall and other improve-
ments were added.
The church, located on Church
Street, has a small but powerful con-
gregation. Over the years it has been
blessed to have some faithful mem-
bers working for their church and
community.
It has been greatly supportive of
education for the young people in
Gadsden County. In the mid-1980s,
the church started giving $500
awards to graduating seniors in the
Gadsden County schools. In 1997
the church decided to share their
blessing by donating to a Tallahas-
see Community College Foundation
Scholarship Fund for the fifth
graders at Gretna Elementary
School. Under the Foundation's
stewardship, the state matched the
church's donation and TCC was able


Friendship Primitive
Baptist Church, 5775
SBen Bostick Road,
Quincy, FL.
Invites you to attend
the Trial sermon of
Minister Richard Burns
on Sunday, October 9,
2005 at 4:00 p.m.
SMinister Burns is the
son of Mother Mary
-1 Burns. He is requesting
all Preachers and
Pastors to attend and
hear a message from
God. A reception will
follow the Service.

to add three more scholarships.
That worked out so well that in
1998 the church pledged stock to
guarantee scholarships for future
generations of fifth graders. The
state once again matched the
church's donation and established an
endowment with the Foundation.
This covered roughly two. dozen
scholarships to TCC for every year
with the interest from the fund. To
qualify for these scholarships, the
fifth-graders must come from low-
income families in which neither
parent or guardian has earned a four-
year degree. The students must
maintain a 2.75 grade point average
and a good attendance record, stay
off drugs and out of trouble with the
law.


In the graduating class of 2005,
seven graduates sponsored by the
church received their diplomas.
These seven started out in 1997 and
achieved their dreams.
Education is not the only area that
this small congregation reaches out
to each year. They support commu-
nity agencies such as the American
Red Cross, Refuge House, Big Bend
Hospice, and the Food Bank. They
have funded homes for Habitat for
Humanity in the community also.
Pastor Ruth Mashewske, the session
and congregation cordially invite all
whose lives have been touched by
this church family to join us on our
special day of celebration. For more
information, call the church office at
850-856-5707.

It's Time for a Change
There are questions asked: Why and how could a loving, merciful God who
rules and owns the whole world, allow such disasters and destruction' The
answer is still God is still in control. We need to agree with Job. Job 1:20
ISV, At this time, Job got up, tore his robe, shaved his head. Then he fell to
the ground in worship and said, naked I came from my mother's womb and
naked will I depart. The Lord gave and the Lord has taken away. Still
blessed be the name of the Lord. Psalm 34:1, I will bless the Lord at all
times. His praise, shall always continually be in my mouth. Not only in times of disaster, but at
all times. It's time for a change. Time to realize who God is. The earth is still the Lord's and the
fullness thereof. The world and they that dwell therein.
God has blessed America so long until it's time for America to realize we are the children of
God. God is not out to get us, he is a God of love and mercy to correct us for our good. We
are so good why we are spared. He knows all of our names, addresses, phone numbers. Who
knows if He will stop by our place today? Hurricanes are not taking or destroying all. God calls,
we must answer. How, when, where, who can tell? Only God knows the day and the hour.
May God continue to bless every one for the sacrifices that's being made to help. Even the
Crime Stoppers is helping, but the real crime stopper is Jesus in the heart. With Jesus in the
heart the thief will stop stealing, the murderers will stop killing, the liars will stop lying, the
dopers and alcholics will stop. Violence of any nature will be eliminated, our highways will be
safer to travel. We all need to make more room in our hearts for Jesus, he is still in control in
this world of every kind of trouble and changes. Jesus can still say peace, and the world's
problems will be solved. It's a call to all nations. God is over all in every way. God bless every
effort that is put forth to sacrifice to help today. Tomorrow may be our day or it could be too
late.
Lord, have mercy on all men, help us seek the Lord while we have a chance.
Humbly submitted,
Evangelist Florence M. Bradwell

10 Gadsden County Times October 6, 2005




Breast cancer awareness month has us seeing pink


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

Seeing pink?
That's because October is Breast Cancer Awareness
Month and pink is the color as millions of women
reach for recovery in the fight against breast cancer.
Fashion designers and celebrities have taken up the
banner to bring awareness to women and to encourage
mammograms and breast self-examinations for early
detection. Dr. Jessie Furlow, who served the Florida
Division of the American Cancer Society and now
works closely with the Leon County unit of the ACS
(which serves Gadsden County) said she cannot
emphasize enough the importance of early detection
either through mammograms or self examination.
"Mammogams are safe. The dose of x-ray is so low
that women should not be apprehensive about the pro-
cedure,"Furlow said. The mammogram is the most


common screening method that can detect breast can-
cer in its early stages. Health experts agree that women
should get mammograms every year after age 40. "For
some women, based on family history, I will often rec-
ommend earlier mammograms," Furlow said.
"A woman knows her body better than anyone, that is
also why I ask women to monthly self-examine their
breasts," she said.
These are the steps to self examination:
Step One: In the shower with fingers flat, move gen-
tly over every part of each breast. Use the right hand to
examine the left breast, and the left hand to examine
the right breast. 'Check for a lump, hard knot or thick-
ening. Carefully observe any changes in the breast.
Step Two: In front of a mirror, put your arms at your
sides and inspect your breasts. Raise your arms over-
head and look for any changes in the contour of each
breast, a swelling, a dimpling of the'skin or changes in
the nipple. Then rest your palms on your hips and flex


your chest muscles. Remember that few women have
left and right breast that match exactly.
Step Three: Lying down, place a pillow under your
right shoulder, with right arm behind your head. With
fingers of the left hand flat, press right breast gently in
a small circular motion, moving vertically or in a circu-
lar pattern, until the entire breast is covered. Use vary-
ing pressures. Squeeze nipple and check for discharge
or lumps. Repeat these steps for your left breast.
Through the self-examination, Furlow said, many
women can detect a lump even before the mammo-
gram. "I definitely don't want women to think that they
should only give themselves an examination and
forego the mammogram. They really should do both,"
she said.
Breast cancer has been a widespread disease among
women for many years. This year 211,240 women will
be diagnosed with breast cancer and more than 40,000
of them will die. The National Cancer Institute esti-


mated that about one in seven women in the United
States or about 13 percent, will develop breast cancer
in her lifetime.
That is why women are urged to get into the habit of
doing a breast self examination each month to become
familiar with how their bodies look and feel. The best
time to examine the breast is several days after the
menstrual cycle ends. That is when the breast is less
likely to be swollen and tender.
Dr. Furlow advises women not to panic if they think
they feel a lump. "Most women have some lumps or
lumpy area in the breasts. Most of the lumps are
benign. But if the woman has any changes and these
changes seem to get worse, they should tell their doc-
tor," she said.
"The main thing to remembers is that early detection'
could save the life of a woman and the best early
detection is the monthly self-examination," she said.


Domestic violence calls show no signs of slowing down locally


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

Monday morning when Whitney Sampson
arrived at her office she was handed three
domestic violence incident reports that
occurred in the county over the weekend.
That's just what was reported. Sampson is
the county's victim's advocate officer who.
among other duties, deals with women who
have been abused by spouses and
boyfriends.
Sampson said one of the cases is what she
calls "regular" where one party hit another.
The other two are more serious. "Oue is a
domestic violence with aggravated assault
and someone went to the hospital. The other
is domestic violence \with false imprison-
ment. Both of these are felonies," she said.
By Monday afternoon she planned to con-
tact all three of the "women involved.
Domestic violence calls show no signs of
slowing down. despite television commer-
cials, educational blitzes, and pleas from
law enforcement, family and friends.
"We've been working it but it's growing. We
follow up on every case we get, but the calls
keep conung in," said Major James Morgan
of the GCSO investigative unit. It is not


unusual to answer 20 or more
month pertaining to domestic
records show.
Frequent calls come to the Qu
Department, too. "We had twc
weekend. That's two that were
reported. My feeling is that if
two are reported there area
probably six more that didn't
get reported." said Chief Ger-
ald McSwain. Monday morn-
ing, one of those arrested
asked for a meeting with the
chief. "He said he felt the offi-
cer somehow persuaded his
wife to press charges. I had to
explain to him that if we get
called we have a responsubil-
ity to identify the aggressor
and that person is going to jad.
It's not up to the victim any-
more...that was back in the 70s
and 80s," he said.
Sampson said her problems of
getting the woman to recognize i

will change. "She keeps telling me that, and
I think she really believes it," Sampson said.
The woman said he wouldn't allow her out
of the house last week. "She told him that
she needed to go to the mailbox which is
near the apartment complex office. When
they got there he turned to talk \with some-
one and she was able to run into the office to
call the sheriff's office," Sampson said.
Officers responded and arrested the man on
the spot but her payoff was an eviction.
Some women. Sampson said, have looked
at the abuse as if it is their destiny. Many of
them have no family to look to for help or
anm other support system.
'I know Im going to end up dead.' Samp-
son said she has been told by more than one
or two women. "'The) know they're in dan-
ger. but they can't or won't do anything
about it."
In order to bring attention to domestic vio-
lence. the Gadsden County Sexual Assault
and Domestic Violence Task Force will hold
a "Speak Out Against Domestic Violence"
Thursday. October 20, at 5:30 p.m. on the
Courthouse Square.
If you are abused or if you know someone
who is, call 911 or the Refuge House at 627-

cost about $26,000. .
As an immediate savings
measure Young said he will auction
off all of the 4X4 trucks and sports
utility vehicles to buy new cars.
The old cars will be assigned to
majors and those officers not on the
road. He hopes that will save about
$100,000.
The automobile situation is so
critical Young says some of the
officers are "almost walking".
Early in his administration he cut
salaries of some officers to save
money. That went over like a lead
balloon and the morale, he feels, is
suffering because he can't give the
raises he has promised. He can't
even give the officers overtime. He
praised the reserve officers who
work on a strictly voluntary basis.
"About 10 of them are consistent. I'
don't know where we would be
without them," Young said.
Young worries about keeping the
officers in Gadsden County. Most
stay because they love it here, but
that love might not be enough. He
said a beginning deputy starts out
here making $25,000 a year. In
Leon County that deputy starts at
$34,000. "Our people do the same
work if not more. The commission-
ers have to understand that public
safety is a priority. I understand the
frustration of the people who live
on dirt roads, I live on one. But we
have to fund this department too at
the level it needs funding," Young
said.


He knows that the county is also
strapped for funds and is going to
appeal to the Board of County :
Commissioners for more money.
He is also looking to state and fed-
eral sources for revenue. "I walked
the halls of the Capitol last session
and I'm going to do the same this
year." Sen. Bill Nelson's (D-
Florida) office gave Young hope
that he might be able to access
some federal dollars this year.
"They were very encouraging and
they are going to help us find fund-
ing to offset our costs," he said.
Young said the office has 'been
underfunded for years and hopes he
will be able' to dig out in a year or
two. About $85,000 that was spend
to buy out (insurance, sick time and
leave) longtime employees who left
the department with the transition
won't be happening this year. "Typ-
ically when employees leave they
get 25 percent. These (Woodham
employees) got 50 percent," he
said.
The financial problems have
caused Young to lay awake nights
trying to think of ways to cut costs
and covers and still save money.
Late one night as he watched the
aftermath- of Hurricane Katrina, it
came to him that "this is our (finan-
cial) Hurricane Katrina."
Shortfall or not, Young does not
regret returning $75,000 to the
Senior Citizens. "If I had it I would
do it again," he said.

Also San Bonita Estates owner
Tommy Hatcher was allowed to
move forward with his development
near Havana's Gibson Sawmill
Road. Hatcher had been asked to
put sidewalks inside the private and
gated subdivision which will border
on as yet undeveloped commercial
property. Hatcher said he had been
given permission by former plan-
ning director Bruce Ballister to con-
struct roads inside the development
of 16 feet and 50 foot setbacks. The
County requires 20 foot roads and 60
foot setbacks. Dixon said.he did not
know why Ballister would have
given Hatcher that permission, but
that the board could not go along
with it. Hatcher said he would com-
ply, but said he thought it unfair to
require him to put sidewalks inside
the development.
"I don't think people will
leave a gated community on foot.
We can't keep going up on costs.
Sidewalks are not that critical in this
development," said Watson.
Haatcher did agree to
install a sidewalk on the Gibson
Sawmill Road section nearest the
development.
In other matters, commis-
sioners voted to enter into an inter-
local agreement with the City of

ton, D.C.'s Edison High School. "I
kind of take off the first semester
and I come back in the second
semester," he said.
Cody Lawrence, 14, attended a
local private school in the county
last year. "I hated it. That's why
I'm here," he said. Sporting a yel-
low arm band that says."Stay ..
Strong", Lawrence says he gets
along well with all students at the
school. He is in the JROTC and
will soon join the Explorers, an
organization that pairs students
with law enforcement officers. His


grades are better than Scott's but he
said he could do better in some
subjects. He has mostly As, Bs, and
Cs with a D or two thrown in the
mix.
Both of the students say they are
treated fairly by teachers and have
had no problems with other stu-
dents. They agree that there is one
thing they don't like about the
school.
"It feels like a jail with the
fences, cameras, and gates. It's like
they don't trust us," Lawrence said.
Even with the fences he likes it
better than the Christian school he
attended last year. "That just wasn't
the place for me," he said.
There have been no confronta-
tions with other students of differ-
ent races for either students and
they can't recall other white stu-
dents having problems. No one has
made derogatory remarks to them.
They have been punished just like
other students when they have bro-
ken school rules.
"You ought to talk to my sister,
Stephanie, she loves it her," Scott
said.

Fire officers visit James A. Shanks Middle School
Community-based instruction is being taught to the special education, self-
contained classes of Johnny Lazok and Sarah Williams. The students have
been learning about living and life in the community. Dewayne Gainous and
Paul Matthew from the Quincy Fire Department recently conducted fire
safety lessons with the students. The officers brought along their fire truck
for an effective and realistic demonstration of fire safety.
An important fact learned by the students is that a family fire plan is the
best precaution to take to ensure safety in the event of a home fire.
The ESE department of James A. Shanks Middle School has planned an
ongoing program of field trips and community involvement to enhance
community-based instruction, and enrich life skills curriculum for the spe-
cial education students.

Crossroads students
getting 'fit for life'
Crossroad Academy Charter
School of Business and Industry is
getting "fit for life". The students,
faculty and staff are participating in
a research project conducted by the
Florida A&M University Division
of Physical Therapy.
Last year the university conducted
a pilot program with Crossroad's
fifth graders and was funded to
implement the program with the
entire school this year.
"Nationally, and more specifically
within our community, there is a
problem with obesity among our
youth. At Crossroad Academy we
are doing our part to help our stu-
dents begin sowing the seeds today
toward healthier lives tomorrow,"
said Millie Forehand, director of
Crossroad Academy.
The purpose of the project is to
help students design their own
activity and nutrition programs for
weight management in a way that is
both fun and practical, according to
principal investigator, Mar) Pope-
Grattan, PhD, PT.
Graduate students in the FAMU
physical therapy program will talk
with students about the importance
of physical activity and nutrition.
Nutrition and fitness information
will be collected and a customized
fitness and nutrition program will
be designed for each of the partici-
pants. "If a student enjoys roller
skating or perhaps swimming, these
activities will become apart of their
fitness portfolio," said PopeGrattan.
The benefits of the program will
be both immediate and far-reaching.
Students will learn how to be more
active and make healthier food
choices. They may lose weight and
become more physically fit.
One of the biggest rewards of the
program, however, according to
PopeGrattan, is that students will
have increased self-esteem and sim-
ply feel better about themselves.
One of the objectives is to include
the entire family in the project.
Additionally, Forehand encour-
aged the faculty and staff to partici-
pate in the program to show support
to the students. "'It's a win- win sit-
uation for all involved," said Fore-
hand. Becoming more health and
fitness conscious is one of our goals
for the year, she said.

..Gadsden County schools celebrate
Exceptional Student Education Week


From the desk of the ESE Director,
Catherine McRae
October 2-8, 2005 has been pro-
claimed Exceptional Student Educa-
tion Week in Florida. I, along with
the Superintendent of Schools,
School Board and all other adminis-
trators would like to extend a warm-
heart appreciation to all who pro-
vide services to exceptional children
throughout Gadsden County. We
also recognize all of the dedicated
teachers and staff for the work they
do every day with students with dis-
abilities and students who are gifted.
Gadsden County has 1,287 stu-


dents in Exceptional Student Educa-
tion, ages birth through 21. There
are about 150 ESE teachers, para-
professionals and other support staff
who work daily with students and
their families to help them achieve
their goals both in the classroom and
on into adult life.
It would be remiss to not recognize
people outside of the ESE arena that
also work diligently to help special
needs kids excel. These include that
families of students and school
based staff members. The families
continue the hard work done by giv-
ing' so much of themselves to help


their children achieve excellence in
every thing they do. Many special
needs students spend the majority of
their time in regular class settings so
it is important to thank the teachers,
staff and administrators in main-
stream education who give of their
time and efforts to help students
reach for excellence.
The contribution of all these indi-
viduals are worthy of recognition
and appreciation. Please join the
Gadsden County School family in
recognizing all of these individuals
as we celebrate this very special
week.


TCS Beta Club Canned Food Drive!
During the month of September, Beta Club Members at Tallavana Christian School worked together to col-
lect can goods, and other non-perishable food items for the benefit of several of our school families who were
victims of Hurricane Katrina. Beta Club members posted signs around school, made numerous announce-
Sments requesting donations, and sent home fliers requesting food items from TCS students and their fami-
lies. This effort ultimately yielded a large "truckload" of food items which were then distributed to the TCS
Families who were in desperate need of our assistance. Beta Club thanks all of the students and families who
went above and beyond the call of duty to help our families during this great time of need!


R. F. M. Magazine Drive a Success
The students in the 3rd-12th grades at Robert F. Munroe Day School
recently wrapped up the sales drive for the annual magazine fundraiser and
have sold over $13,000 in magazines. Pictured are the top. sales people,
who sold more than $400, As '.ili. :. the .ire, treated to a trip for pizza
and another meal at a steak house.
The four ofthe top sellers repeated their titles from last year's campaign.
They are Drew Cook, who raised over $900; Ashley King, who sold in
excess of $725 in goods; Hunter "Teddy Bear" Rushing who made almost
$600; and Audrey Thomas, whose total exceeded her 2004 total of $592 by
bringing in $676. Andy Kunkler was the fifth top seller, bringing in almost
$500.
Other salesmen who earned enough to visit Pizza Hut and Marie Liv-
ingston's Steakhouse include Alex Gay, Blake Norman, Ramsey Higdon,
Justine Ray, Mary Jane Milam, Clay Young, and Katy Jo Helm. The stu-
dents in Mrs. Jeri Stewart 's sixth grade class sold $4,071. Their class was
the top sellers as a homeroom.
The top selling homeroom, was the sixth grade, followed closely by the
-fifth graders. Several homerooms grossed more than $1,300. The proceeds
from the fundraiser help defray student expenses for several programs at the
school.

Jeff Schaum's Munroe football team didn't
fair real well Friday night, but the Bobcat head
football coach can take some solace in the fact
that he defeated me in mi football prediction

Jeff nailed 6 of the 10 picks bestiug my 5 of

I'Fl try to get even again this year taking on

west of Altha.
He graduated Liberty Co. High were he
played baseball and football. From there he

from where he received
hts degree in Exercise

Brent has worked in
the UF football program,
coached at Liberty Co.
High, Chipola and P.K.
SYoung in Gainesville.

he has taught and been
the head baseball coach
at Sneads and for the
past 3 summers he
coached the SWAT base-
ball team.
The S\WAT team \\as

I hope he doesn't also have the distinction
of giving me 2 losses in a row after I had

Three missed lay-ups would cost
the Carter-Parramore Lions a
national championship. They would
lose to Booker T. Washington High
School in the last game of the play-
offs in Nashville, Tennessee.
The year was 1962 and the coach
who had brought his team up
through the ranks to the last game of
the National Championship was
Charleston Holt.
"It just wasn't meant to be," Holt
would say about that fateful evening
over 43 years ago.
Coach Holt was inducted in the
National Negro High School Bas-
ketball Hall of Fame last week at the
Hilton Garden Inn in Daytona, for
his coaching and reaching the
National Championship all those
years ago.
Holt still -talksfondly of the team
that brought national attention to
Carter-Parramore's basketball team.
It had been a whirlwind season for
Holt and the Lions. He will tell you
right up front that he had the right
players at the right time.
One of his starting players, David
Whjtle\, was hurt in the state cham-
pionship games and was unable to
play 'in the final game.
Holt said he remembered well the
coach of the Booker T. Washington
High School team: coming over to
talk. "He put his finger in my face
and told me that 'when I beat you, I
want to beat your best," Holt said.
Without hesitation, Holt responded
to the coach and said, "I'm gonna
put five on the court, when you put
five on the court." What the other
coach, didn't knqow Holt said. was
that his back up players were as
good ashis starting players.
Holt put Rayfield Ellis in'for What-
ley and the team won the state
championship. "We had good
back up," Holt said.
Like any good coach, Holt looked
for a weakness in the opposing
team, and he found it early in the
game.
"I noticed that the guard had.to look
at the ball when he dribbled," Holt
said. That was what he
needed,and he turned Ellis and
Robert "Sneak" Williams on the
guard. They never gave him a
minute's peace and stole ball, after
ball, Holt said.
Holt said he had held back on the
fast break, but the stolen balls were
perfect for fast breaks and the other
team didn't have a chance.T h e
Lions would win the state champi-
onship by 17 points.
High scorer Thomas Gordon would
rack up 102 point total for the four
game state championship tourney.
The state championship win would
send the Lions to the.National Tour-
nament where 21 other state champs

Coach Holt in his football uniform
would be volleying for the national
title.
An article in The Gadsden County
Times dated March 15, 1962, said
that the "Players dreams came true,
and the ambition of every coach is
to be a member of or coach a cham-
pionship team."
It was a different time and era, Holt
would say about 1962. There were
still segregated schools in the South.
Black students attended all black
schools and white students attended
all white schools. At the time very
little attention was given to black
high school sports.
A letter to Holt from Owen Harris,
executive director of Florida's'
NNHSBB Hall of Fame said, "Your
participation in segregated high
school basketball in the United
States allows us to understand the
importance of the past and its con-
nection with present innovations in
basketball." .,
..Holt would t.ke the Lion,' nine all
the way to Nash\tlle. Tennessee.
where they would knock down state
champs from Mississippi and Geor-
gia.
It would be another Booker T.
Washington High School from
Memphis, Tennessee, that would
stop their rise to the National
Champs.
Holt said that his final opponent
was a tough rival. "They had a
player that could dunk the ball from
the foul line," Holt said. The Lions
lost in a heartbreaker 56-51, Holt
said.
Holt still talks fondly of his 1962
team. They are all good men and
have gone on to be successful," Holt
said of the nine players that took
him to the National Championship
play-offs.
"All my athletes were good schol-
ars and had no problems with aca-
demics," Holt said.
He names them with a certain air of
pride: Woodrow Campbell, Ray-
field Elias, Hughes Simmons,
Nathaniel Cunningham, David

Turnovers tough on



Panthers; lose 19-12


by Cale Wheeler
With 2 straight district wins under their belt West
Gadsden's Panthers headed to Freeport Friday night
hoping to get their district mark to 3-0.
In a game of turn overs and missed opportunities the
Panthers dropped a 19-12 decision to the Bulldogs..
West Gadsden controlled the first half of the game
and led 12-6 at the intermission on a pair of touchdown
runs of 68 and 20 yards by Ron Bums.
Freeport came out in the third quarter and held the
ball for over 10 minutes running off 24 plays and tak-
ing the lead with a pair of t,d,'s.
A Panther fumble in the quarter limited West Gads-


den to just 4 offensive plays in the stanza.
Runs by Bums and Ron Roberts helped the Panthers
mount a fourth quarter drive but they ran out of downs
and Freeport ran out the clock hurting West Gadsden's
play-off hopes.
Burns finished the night with 196 yards rushing while
Chris Atkins, Reshard McMillian and Gary Brown all
had over 10 tackles to lead the defense.
The Panthers play another big district game Friday
night when they host Wewahitchka at 8 pm. A win is
almost a must if they are to stay in contention in the dis-
trict.

Gunnels, Aucilla top Munroe


Things couldn't go much better for Aucilla's Casey
Gunnels Friday night. The Aucilla senior ran the ball 26
times for 175 yards and scored a pair of touchdowns in
the Warrior's 24-0 win over Munroe's Bobcats at Corry
Field.
Aucilla's Jason Holton also scored twice and Holton
led the Warrior defensive effort with 8 tackles.
Munroe struggled on offense all night and the Bob-
cats were limited to just 52 yards of offense.
Defensively Steve Phillips and Bryant Tolar led the


way with 15 and 12 tackles respectively.
Gunnels scores came on runs of 11 and 70 yards
while Holton got in the end zone on runs of 47 and 1
yard.
The game was a District 2-1B contest as well as a
Panhandle Football Conference game.
Munroe is 1-4 overall, 0-1 in the district, and 1-3 in the

night.

Orthopraxy

Paul F. Joyner, Ph.D.

The word 'orthopraxy' is an unusu-
al word. I would almost be willing
to give a hand knitted bathtub to
any of the readers who can uthful'l-
ly say that they knew the meaning
of this word before reading this col-
umn. It's not exactly the kind of
word most pcoikl use in conversa-
tion with a neighbor, r',:I.-.,i iinini.
tomato plants in the back yard.
Like so many words which are the
bane of foreigners tr. i':g to learn
English, the word has two mean-
ings which do not seem to be relat-
ed at all. The first is "rightness or
uprightness of action. That is prac-
tical righteousness. Correct prat-
ice." The second is simply "ortho-
pedic surgery". Bone surgery on the
feet.
There is obviously no connection
between the two meanings. Or is
there? Think for a moment on these
words from the book of James, "Be
ye doers of the Word and not hear-
ers only." That is orthopraxy! "Do
good to those that despitefully use
you." That is orthopraxy practical
righteousness. A pastor went to a
church which had called him as
their pastor. In a short time he
found an interesting situation. A
man had quit the church years,
before. The new pastor wanted to
discover the problem, so he visited
the man. Here is what he learned: It
Was a small country church and a
committee had been appointed to
build a netr rest room the outdoor
hind. This man went into town and
ought some pine lumber and put it
nI the church yard. That afternoon
another member of the committee
came by the church and saw the
K,


lumber. He decided that oak lumbr
would be better. When the first man
learned of this, he became furious
and quit the church. Shut out of the
blessings he could have received
attending church those many years
- all because of an outhouse. Isaiah
wrote, "How beautiful upon the
mountain are the feet of him that
brings good tidings." So you see,
the man who is a hearer of the
Word only, but does not let it
change his everyday life in his rela-
tionship to his brother man, needs
orthpraxy. That is, he needs sur-
rgery on his spiriutal feet, so that he.
might better walk the path of right
relationships.
Jesus Christ isthe Great Physician,
and the only surgeon qualified to
do this. But still there are millions
trying to go about on deformed
feet.
I invite you to visit The Berean
Church located south of the old
high school building in
Chattahoochee, FL. Dr. Joyner can
be reached at 850-674-2633.

Benefit for Innovation
Schools of Excellence
On Sept. 5 there was a fire at Inno-


vation Baptist Church and Innova-
tion Schools of Excellence, the
school housed therein, in Tallahas-
see. This devastating incident left
the facility in ruins and more than
400 students and their teachers dis-
placed. The entire stock of the chil-
dren's school supplies, desks, com-
puters, office furniture, office sup-
plies and other equipment was com-
pletely destroyed.
The students of Innovation Schools
range in age from infancy to 8th
grade. Approximately 85 percent of
the students attend our school under
subsidized childcare, others are eli-
gible for free or reduced lunches,;
and about 10 percent have special
needs. We have worked very hard to
build a quality program open to peo-
ple regardless of their socioeconom-
ic status or ethnic background.
With your help, the members of our
community can come together for a
worthy cause. You are cordially in-
vited to attend "An Evening with
Maxine Waters", a banquet spon-
sored by the Parent Teacher Organi-
zation of the schools. All proceeds
from this event will be used to ben-
efit the PTO Relief Fund. For more
information or to purchase tickets,
please call 850-575-4468 or 850-
339-7101, or fax inquiries and tick-

?hett Devane finds Chattahoochee perfect for her novels


' ALICE DU PONT
times Editor

jShe grew up in tiny Chatta-
ochee...little Harriett Devane.
e youngest of three children, her
imagination was always spinning.
ith the help of her high school
Enalirh teacher, Sharon Lasseter,
Hiariett (now shortened to Rhett)
earned to put pencil to paper in a
w ay ihat takes the reader to the
'-nall southern town to dwell there.
I. Devane has just had her second
filcnon novel "Up the Devil's
Belly" released. She will be signing
lhr book this Sunday from 1 p.m.
to 5 p.m. at Barnes and Nobles
Bookstore in the Tallahassee Mall.
@n October 30, she will hold
anotherr book signing from 2 p.m.
to 5 p.m. at Borders Bookstore on
Apalachee Parkway. Locally, both
of her books are on sale at the
Gadsden Arts Center.
, Devane graduated from Robert F.
Munroe where she was one of the
editors of the Paw Print. It was dur-
irg those years that Devane really
developed her love for writing.
'But I guess I've always like to
write, even as a child," she said.
But it was Lasseter, Devane said,
who never gave up on her talents as


a writer. "She was so thrilled when
I told her I was published."
Devane, who is a parttime dental
hygienist, said she gets up early
and goes to the office of Dr. Bill
Cooke, where she has worked for
the past 27 years. She said she will
go in early and write about three
pages before she gets ready for her
patients. When the day is over she
goes home and writes some more,
turning out about three or four
pages a day. At night she types
what she has written on the com-
puter and does the editing. "I'm
disciplined in that I write every day.
I'd rather write long hand and then
put it in the computer," she said.
It works because her first book,
"The Madhatter's Guide To Choco-
late", was published last October,
and she has another one set for
publication in October 2006. The
next book revolves around a victim
of breast cancer. "Tallahassee
Memorial Hospital is on board with
the book. They allowed me to use
the name of the hospital in the
book.
"In all there are six books in the
series," she said. Devane has also
written a number of children's
books and has a collection of short
stories.

She calls her work 'southern fic-
tion' and says her biggest fan is her
mother, who now resides in Wood-
month Retirement Home in Talla-
hassee. He books area easy reading
and the characters are based on a
blend of people that she has seen in
real life or in her dreams. Her
brother, Jimmy Devane, the
county's emergency management
coordinator, said her first book
seemed so real that some people
thought he was one of the charac-
ters.
"She had a character in that first.
book who was a drunk. People
would come up to me and say they
were sorry about my problem. They
thought it was me. I told her in this
next book she'd better straighten
him out," he said.
Devane said in the second book


she did get the character into Alco-
holics Anonymous.
A happy and secure childhood
has planted Devane's feet on solid
ground. Her stories depict humans
as they are, with all of the ups and
downs and problems associated
with living. But her books also
show that there is always hope and
that people can overcome adversity.
"My books end on a positive note,"
she said. After reading her first
book, a Wacissa woman came back
and bought 15 more, one of each
member of her family.
She is, she said, grateful for a
good family. Her father has passed
on, but she gets to spend a lot of
time with her mother, and sees her
brother often. Her sister lives in
Nashville and they talk often. "If
everyone had parents like I did, the


world would be j
better place. The\
were supportive in
everything that I
did," she said. Her
other family, the
patients she has
tended to over the _.
years, has also
been very support-
ive of her literan
career. During the
first book signing
last year, she said
275 books sold the
first 30 minutes.
Her books have
brought out
another part of
Devane. The
books have taught
her to be more
accepting. "I have
learned that age
and race don't
seem to matter.
The key is to keep
an open mind and
try to be more tol-
erant."
That revelation may have come
six years ago when she took train-
ing in massage therapy. "I
thought I has gotten rid of all of the


Rhett Devane


demons (that society places on peo-
ple) but there is something about
touching a person that brings every-
thing home,'"she said.


Gadsden native pens novel about


drug smuggling in South Florida


A former Associate Editor of The Gadsden County
Times has published an adventure novel about drug
smuggling in South Florida. Curt Littman, associate
editor from 1976 to 1977, wrote the book based upon
some of his work with the Martin County, Florida,
Sheriff's Department.
"I was Sheriff Jim Holt's civil counsel for about six
years in the late 1980's. Martin County is a coastal
county with over two hundred miles of river and
oceanfront land, which provides plenty of places to
offload illegal drugs smuggled into the U.S. by boat.
Additionally, about three-fourths of the county is as
flat as a pancake, mostly huge cow pastures, and dope
filled airplanes can land just about anywhere," said
Littman.
Littman, a native of Gadsden County, went to public
school in Quincy when he was young, and eventually
graduated from Florida State University with a law
degree. He became first interested in police work in his
role as an auxiliary policeman with the Quincy Police
Department under RD. Edwards.
Littman's role with the Martin County Sheriff's
Departmeit-was to prosecute the tools used by smug-
glers; ocean racers, yachts, aircraft, automobiles, cash,
safe houses, guns, communications equipment, and
Anything else used to "aid, abet, or facilitate the com-
rpission of a felony."
, "Florida law provides that any tool used by a smug-
gler, or other felon, can be seized and if brought
through a trial court procedure, can be forfeited by the
Court to the seizing agency. My job was to prove to a
j)idge or a jury, by the greater weight of the evidence,
tiat the item had been used to aid in the commission of
4 felony, which was mostly drug smuggling," said
Littman.
: The book recently published.by Littman is entitled
Pope Run, and is about a smuggling operation run by


two "ordinary Americans", in which a large quantity of
cocaine and marijuana is smuggled by aircraft and boat
into Florida, then transported through Georgia to
Memphis, Tennessee, headquarters of a southern drug
lord,
S"This is an action book based on several actual
smuggling operations. Though it is fictional, many
events ir the books occurred in actual drug smuggling
operations," said Littman. Some of the action takes
place in a fictional Georgia town where the smugglers
offload a C-47 full of contraband, and haul it by truck
to Memphis.
Littman said he let Professor Robert Flynn, formerly
Trinity University's Novelist in Residence, read the
manuscript first. "I wanted him to tell me whether to
give up writing. But he said he could not put the man-
uscript down once he began reading," said Littman,
who added that it took him "too long" to write Dope
Run, which-came out .mid-summer, ,I have-had-corqi -
ments from at least a hidlf dozen people who have read
Dope Run. I am pleased to say that the unvarying com-
ment has been 'This is a great book!'" said Littman.
"Athell, Georgia, the little town in the book, is typi-
cal of many southern towns. Gadsden County residents
may see certain characters or places as being similar to
folks or places in Gadsden County," said Littman.
The book is available at all on-line bookstores,
including Barnes and Noble, Borders, Walden Books,
and others..
Littman added that his mother, Jan Littman, who was
known to many folks in Quincy, recently published
Swamp Giant, a children's novel about a young girl's
efforts to save a giant cypress tree from loggers in the
1930's, "That book has also received rave reviews
from readers," said Littman. It, too, is available on-
line, he said.

24 Gadsden County Times October 6, 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!
