Board denies Midway charter school application


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

; The Gadsden County School Board denied
:the Academies of Excellence's application
for an elementary charter school and a mid-
dle charter school in Midway Monday night
during a special meeting.
A committee appointed by Reginald


James, Superintndent of Schools, returned
its findings and recommended that the
Board deny the company's application.
Some of the reasons included:
*Not enough details on the philosophy or
purpose of the school.
*Inconsistent enrollment policy.
*Not enough detail on the state's A-plus
accountability plan.


*The reading program listed by the appli-
cant is not consistent with the county's ele-
mentary and secondary programs.
*Professional development opportunities
are inadequate.
*No "innovative or original" instructional
methods.
*Handicapped population not clearly
described.


*Does not explain how "more opportuni-
ties for parents and students will provide
rigorous competition within the public
school district".
*Provided little evidence to support the
assertion that a diverse population will be
served.
*No strong evidence to support the poten-
tial influx of more students.


*Instructional goals and objectives not
clearly specified.
*The reading curriculum is not consistent
with the district's comprehensive reading
program.
*No specifics on which standardized tests
will be used to measure student progress or

2 men


shot near


state line

by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

Two Hispanic men were shot Fri-
day night as they walked from a
store near the Georgia-Florida line
iibout 10p.m.
Accoridng to Inv. Jim Corder of
the Gadsden County Sheriff's
Office, the men said they had been
to the Country Store on the Bain-
bridge Highway to cash their checks
and wire' money to family in Mex-
ico.
"As they were walking back, they
said two or three young black males
jumped out of the ditch and shot
them. According to them, the men
didn't say a word, just shot them.
and they ran," Corder said.
One of the victims was shot in the
left chest area and the bullet exited
the man's back. The second victim
was shot near the center of his back
and in the back of his right arm. The
weapon used was a small caliber
pistol. The men ran down Fordhook
Road to a residence where they
called 911.
Corder said the Quincy Police
Department's K-9 unit was called
,and tracked up to Carswell Road to
!a spot where the tracks ended and a
vehicle did a spinout leaving the
area. "We couldn't find the exact
location of the crime scene and
couldn't find any spent bullets," he
said.
Corder said Hispanics have
become the target of criminals
because they are known to carry
cash. "It was strange that they just
shot them and didn't try to rob

Tax bills mailed;

predicted shortfall


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

In a memo to the Board of County
Commissioners, Clerk of the Courts
Nicholas Thomas said that while the
general cash fund is down to
$369,562, the tax collector has
mailed out the bills for ad valorem
taxes and the "cash situation should
be greatly improved by December".
"It wasn't as dire as people would
have had the public believe," said
County Manager Marlon Brown.
Earlier in the year, Thomas had pre-
dicted a shortfall that would neces-
sitate borrowing money to pay bills.
That is not the case now. Funds are
available to cover payroll and to pay
for other essential services without a
problem.
In other matters, commissioners
approved several developments,
including a 50-lot residential subdi-
\ sion'west of Phoebe Road souih of
U.S. Highway 90 east, about four
miles from downtown Quincy.
According to Charles Hargraves,
only site built homes will be built on
the property. There will be under-
ground utilities. "This will be public

graves said.

Teacher describes morning 's
events in cafeteria as "war"

by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

The cafeteria at West Gadsden High School in
Greensboro was the scene of a fight involving about a
dozen students Friday around 7:20 a.m., minutes before
school started.
When the dust settled, eight deputies had responded,
ten students had been arrested, a school resource officer
had a busted lip, and one student \\as taken by life-flight
to Tallahasse Memorial Hospital.
A teacher at the school described the morning as a
"war".
According to Sheriff Morris Young. the trouble started
Thursday afternoon on the school bus that takes students
to the Hardaway Conmmunity and to Chattahoochee.
At some point on the bus ride, one student refused to
move his foot from the aisle. As another student passed,
he was kicked in the butt, which started a fight. Friday
morning when the students returned to school, other stu-
dents had learned of the impending fight during the
night.


"I knew something was wrong when they got off the
bus, two boys were bouncing around saying 'I'm going
to get mine', related a staff member at the school.
When the students went to the cafeteria for breakfast she
sensed trouble and called for Deputy Anthony Brown,
the school resource officer. "It caught me by surprise, I
thought it was a normal day," Brown said.
The two boys involved in the fight on the school bus
started up again in the cafeteria. This time, though, they
had an audience and they had help. The fight soon esca-
lated intb a brawl.
"They were fighting all over.the place. We did our best
to contain them, I got in and started throwing them out
of the way. I caught one on the lip, but the student was-
n't trying to hit me," Brown said.
One student was hit so hard by another student he was
taken by helicopter to TMH. "He hit the floor so hard,
we thought he was dead," said the school staff member
who saw the student get punched in the jaw.
"They turned this place upside down. This has
been going on for two weeks. It's (fighting) constant and
the girls are as bad as the boys. The students from
Greensboro and Chattahoochee aren't getting along,"
said one teacher. The last time there was a big'brawl at
the school was September 15 of this year, according to

for subvisision development was the
Shade Farm Subdivision. The prop-
erty is located on the north side of
Shade Farm Road, off the Bain-
bridge Highway, about three miles
north of the Quincy city limits. The
owers, Bill McMillan and Dr.
Charles Rockwood, propose to con-
truct nearly 60 site built homes on
two plots that equal 110 acres.
Commissioner Brenda Holt asked
if sidewalks would be a part of the
development plan. The developers'
representative said sidewalks had
not been part of the plan because of
the rural setting, but that he could
consider adding three feet to the
streets inside the development for
bike trails.
he county currently has no policy
on sidewalks in subdivisions, but
William McCord, planning and
growth management director, said
he has consistently asked develop-
ers to put in sidewalks. "It's not a
rural county, we're quickly becom-
ing a suburban community," he said.
Holt said that while we might not
need sidewalks today, there will
come a time when we will need
them and not have them. "If you tell
us to do sidewalks, we'll put in side-
walks," Rockwood said. Following

Judge takes power


line limit issue


under advisement


By ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

In the matter of Progress Energy
and the county's ordinance to limit
the kilowatts, Circuit Judge George
Reynolds III said Tuesday he needs
to take the matter under advisement.
In short, he needs more time to
study both sides of the issue to make
a ruling.
Representatives of Progress
Energy argued that the legislature,
by the enactment of certain laws,
does not require the company to
consider local ordinances when
determining where to place trans-
mission lines. The county, one the
other hand, wants to be sure that cit-
izens have some input into where
the lines are placed in their commu-
nity.
"Where do the people go to be
heard?" asked Judge Reynolds.
"They can't go to trial court, yet


you're going to affect their property
values." he said.
"We had an open house where the
public was invited," replied William
Crawford, representing Progress
Energy. He maintained that the
.county should have no regulatory
input since transmission lines and
their placement is defined by the
Public Service Commission.
Judge Reynolds agreed that
Progress Energy's arguments are
legally correct and the county
should not intervene. "Progress
Energy has not proven to my satis-
faction they need this line to use as
a backup when other lines go down.
I have continually been bothered
that the open forum for citizens is
Progress Energy's Open House. I
will take the matter under advise-
ment," he said. Both sides have until
Nov. 14 to submit written argu-
ments.

Gadsden County Times November 3, 2005 3


Greensboro depot faces trying times


by BYRON SPIRES
Times staff Writer

The Town of Greensboro sits
quietly now, a small village in the
southwest corner of Gadsden
County. The once booming town
has a few stores and a flashing
light to remind folks that even
though it is only a shell of its for-
mer self, it is still there.
There was a time in the not so
distant past that Greensboro was a
thriving community, bustling with
hundreds of people and dozen or
more stores.
Many of those buildings are
now gone. Fletcher Company and
the old Greensbqro Hotel are now
only memories.
But there is one old building still
in Greensboro that's history may
surprise you.
Hidden behind a veneer of
bricks is Greensboro's old train
depot. It is well camouflaged
and gives the appearance of a
more modern building.
The old building was bought
and moved to its present location
in the late 1950s by Edwin and
Nelson Clark.
The Clark's remodeled the
building and turned it into a barber
shop. The building faces Selman
Street on the west side of the A
and N Railroad tracks in down-
town Greensboro. It originally sat
between the main track and the
spur, south of its present location.
It has more recently been used as a
Thrift Shop.
The original building was built in
about 1907 and is a major part of
Greensboro's history.
Thousands would buy tickets in
the depot's ticket office for the
twice daily train that would take
them to destinations all over the
country and the world if the need
arose.
A train schedule dated in the
early 1900s showed connections in
Port St. Joe to "Trans-Atlantic
Steamers". Someone could leave
Greensboro and travel anywhere
that a railroad ran.
The Greensboro stop was one
.of twelve depots between Climax,
SGeorgia and Apalachicola with an
tension to Port St. Joe.
SIn the heyday of coal produc-
'tion. trains hauling nearly 100 cars
.full of coal ran daily along the
tracks on their way from the coal
Shines of Ohio to coal burning
:plants on the east coast. They had
started their journey in barges
"ushed along the Mississippi River
and intercoastal water ways to Port
St. Joe to catch the A and N.
It would be around the railroad
and the depot that Greensboro
:would prosper. Across the depots
wooden floors would cross mil-
lions of pounds of freight every
\ ear during the heyday of agricul-


ture in west Gadsden County.
A 1946 article in the Gadsden
County Times hailed Greensboro
as the state's largest producer of
sugar cane. That winter's crop
filled 50 railroad cars with the
"luscious 'Sweet' crop," the article
said.


a member of the WGHS board of
directors, said.
Poucher said that plans are
underway to save the old building.
The exact way is still to be
decided she said, but some way,
some how, she plans to save the
building.


with the property's present owner
and Progress Energy. There are
also numerous lawsuits that are
ongoing among some property
owners. Progress Energy and
Gadsden County.
In the middle of all of this is still
the building itself. It is not known
exactly what kind of physical
shape the building is in, the cost to
remove the bricks, the cost to
move it, the cost to set it up and


Today and yesterday......
Once a barber shop and thrift store, above the depot sits waiting on its destiny on Selman Street.
Below, the depot in its hey day, circa, early 1900's.


Today the building sits awaiting a
questionable future. Fate has
thrown the old depot a strange
twist. The building that once
brought in a mecca of prosperity in
the twentieth century is now in the
way of a truly twenty-first century
dilemma, growth.
The depot sits in the right-of-way
for the proposed 115K volt
Progress Energy power line
through Greensboro.
For nearly fifty years the build-
ing has sat at its current location.
Hundreds pass it every day and
most don't even realize it is there.
It is insignificant and void of any
physical value. Now it is only in
the way and could possibly face
demolition. In addition, it is not
listed as an historical site on the
National Historical Site Registry.
But, there is hope for the old
depot.
The West Gadsden Historical
Society has taken up its plight.
Now it has a friend in its hour of
need.
"My concern is to get it moved
and saved," Lynn Layton Poucher,


And there has been some real
headway made to save the build-
ing.
Poucher said she had received a
letter from the St. Joe Company
that offered a piece of property on
which to relocate the depot.
The property is on the east side
of the tracks at the corner of Sel-
man Street and Duffel Avenue. It
is a wedge-shaped piece of prop-
erty that is next to the side track
and would, Poucher said, be ideal
for the old depot.
Poucher stood and looked over
the property Monday afternoon
and spoke of future plans for the
depot and what it would mean to
Greensboro.
She talked about using the
depot as an art gallery for local
artists and a place people could
gather fdr outings and picnics.
"It will be a place where people
can remember Greensboro's his-
tory," Poucher said.
There are still a lot of obstacles
to overcome before saving the
depot can become a reality.
Negotiations are still under way


most importantly, who is going to
pay for it.
In a telephone interview, Martha
Barnwell, regional vice president
with Progress Energy Florida Inc.,
said that her company would not
make a decision about the building
until after the first of the year.
Barnwell said that Progress Energy
was concerned about the condition
of the building, but was interested
in being a part of the process to
determine what can be done.
With the future of the building
still uncertain, Poucher said that a
meeting between WGHS, a repre-
sentative from Progress Energy
and Ducky Johnson House Movers
was planned for next Wednesday
at 10 p.m.
Poucher is also working on get-
ting the old depot listed on the his-
torical registry. "We don't want
to lose any more of Greensboro's
history," Poucher said.
If you would like more infor-
mation about the depot or West
Gadsden Historical Society you
can contact Poucher at 850-442-
6434.

Trick or Treat or Eddie


Monday night I went over to King Street and watched the kids
Trick or Treat.
It was a lot of fun to watch how they reacted to handful of
candy being dropped in their Halloween bags.
They were certainly a happy lot. Of course I'm sure the parents
were not quite as excited Tuesday and Wednesday after a couple
of days of their kids eating candy and a lot of energy to burn.
I liked watching the different costumes. Some were real elabo-
rate, some were homemade and some were store bought.
One little girl had on the smallest witches outfit I believe I have
ever seen. One little boy was dressed like a miniature Darth
' Vader, helmet and all. Actually all you saw was a giant helmet
walking down the street.
There were plenty of princess costumes and action figure cos-
:tumes, but I like the homemade ones the best.
I guess that is because those were the type I wore growing up
when I went trick or treating.
At our house we only had a couple of choices. One, as-you can
:imagine, was a ghost or actually an old sheet with holes for eyes
cut in it so you could see. The other was a hobo.
Some people may not know what a hobo was so I'll give you a
brief explanation.


A hobo was someone that rode
trains and lived in Hobo jungles. I
actually remember seeing hobos
in the woods near River Junction
train station in Chattahoochee
when I was a kid.
They usually were kinda
unkempt and wore real-baggy
clothes.
As you have figured by now my
parents did not have a lot of
spend on costumes, so we got by with what we had.
her Eddie and I couldn't both be ghosts, so we alter-
ag ghosts and hobos.
got old enough to take Eddie without our parents my
eipts dramatically went ip, especially the year I dressed
as a robot.
)t costume was a streak of genius for me. I got a pretty
box and painted it with some.silver paint I found in our
i. I don't know why, even to this day, but that shed
emed to have a bunch of half full cans of paint in it.
I painted the box and then cut holes in it for Eddie's
s and legs. I had plans to paint all of Eddie's exposed
[alloween night with what was left of the silver paint.
r put a stop to that and suggested some aluminum foil

1 run the aluminum foil didn't work on Eddie's head. I
mv if you have ever tried to wrap foil around a seven-
head, but it isn't a pleasant job. So I found a smaller
nade the robot a head. I used an old coat hanger as his

iobo and Eddie was the robot and we racked up on the


As I have told you before, Eddie needed me to translate what he
said.
The first house we went I hollered out "Trick or Treat" and a
nice lady came to the door and put a handful of candy in our
paper sacks.
Eddie had been talking the whole time we were waiting on the
lady to put candy in our bag and she asked me what he was say-
ing. I had not made the hole for the mouth very big in the box
and what he was saying was muffled a lot. He was actually say-
ing "Trick or Treat", but I told the lady he said he wanted more
candy. She got another handful and put it in our sacks.
Since I had glued the little box to the big box Eddie could not
just move the head part of the robot.
He was still mumbling and trying to shake his head "no".
Instead of his head moving, both boxes swung from side to side.
"Oh how cute, he looks like a real robot," the lady said and
dumped some more candy in our sack.
A light bulb went off for me.
The rest of the night I used the same routine.
Eddie got tired a couple of times, but I was on a roll and Hal-
loween only lasts one night you know.
We ended up with two bags full of candy by the end of the
night.
The next day I started planning next year's Halloween cos-
tumes.
I had a great idea: I was going to dress Eddie up as a turtle. I
had found an old washing machine tub in the woods and figured
it would make a great turtle shell. It only weighed about 50
pounds and I figured by the next year Eddie would beef up a lit-
tle and be able to carry it.
Well, I guess you'll have to wait now until next Halloween to
find out what happened, won't you?

Utility bills too high


Dear Editor. ,

In these trying economic times, I
fail to see why the utility bills from
theCity of Quincy are so high. As a
resident of Burmah Heights since
1999, I have seen my electric bill'
grow from $200-250 per month (way
higher in summer and winter) to an
Average of well over $500.00. Now,
my question is why are the electric
bills so high? I will tell you when I
received my first $300+ bill, drastic
changes Wvere made in'how we run
the household. We literally sweat and
freeze. Our neighbors joke at :the
fact that our windows are open all
summer. They ask, "Are y'all ever
home? Why don't you turn on the
air?" I merely reply, I'd like to keep
that bill as close, to $500.00 as possi-
ble, how's your bill?" They look at
me quizzicallN and then the under-
standing sets in as they know their
bills are sky high.
For the past 5 years, we are in tank
tops and shorts in the summer, liter-
ally sweating in our own home. and.
long johns, .turtlenecks, s\\eaisuhrts
and two pairs of socks sitting on the
couch with comforters and using our
wood burning fireplace just to stay
warm in the winter. Now, what I find
funny is that only 2 people live here,
One only comes home to sleep and if
I am not busy directing a show or .


working late at rehearsal, I am home
at 5:00pm and then I am out the door
by 7:00am. Now, I know for a fact
that my refrigerator doesn't use that
MUCH electricity. When more peo-
ple lived in my home, the bills were
smaller but that %\ as in 1999. .
What truly frustrates me is that there
are people who live Sunset who pay
Sless...although I am sure that City of
Quincy is gouging them as much as
possible, too. What boggles my
mind is what is the difference,
between the energy a light bulb uses
in Burmah Heights compared to Sun-
set...better \et the folks on Talquin
Electric have reasonable electric
bills. What I wouldn't give to have a
$200 electric bill?
See, its not that I mind paying for
goods and services that I receive, it's
just \\ hat exactly am Ipaying for? On
many occasions, we have had
$800.00 electric bills. Hello, for a
time we were seriously considering
moving back to Tallahassee as the
electric bills were getting as high as
the mortgage payments?. My sister
in law and her family just moved
back to Tallahassee 7 their main rea-
son...no not the schools, not the
neighbors, not the fact that there is
not much to do in Quincy, but the
electric bills. People of Quincy. I ask
you does that make anm sense"
Once we had to pal close to $120 as
a fuel adjustment charge? Fuel
adiusmient? What fuel are they put-
ting in my house and why does it
need to be adjusted? This is the
explanation I received City of,
Quinc\ basically bought the electric-
ity from someone' else, then they
charge us to use the electricity that
we truly used and then they charge us
the fuel adjustment (basically we are
'paying again for, the electricity we,
used that they bought from another


company). So basically this is what
the City of Quincy is doing if they
were a T-shirt shop. City of Quincy is
offering the service of T-Shirts, but
they don't have any t-shirts. So they
buy some T-shirts from this company
in South Florida and they charge 5
dollars for the shirt. Then of course,
they mark it up. (I don't begrudge
this as you do have to pay employees
and make money that's the nature of
business) However, now they have
the T-Shirt on sale for $20 00. Ok. I
'gerthis-.'-:hatis'wi~ whis on the tag. I
go to the register and the bill is.
$26.75. I know there is tax. but I ask
why is this $20.00 shirt now $26.75.
The girl behind the counter says,
"Well. % e bought the shirt, marked it
up to $20.00 so \\ e nake a profit and
then we go ahead and tack on the
original $5.00 so now we are totally
making a profit." I stand there dumb-
founded. At this point, all I want to
do is get on-line and buy the shirt
directly from the company's website
in South Florida.
SWhat is so galling is that is
exactly what they are doing and if
they just charged us without the fuel
adjustment line I would never know
and maybe not be the wiser. I think
its just crazy that they basically have
it on, the electric bill that they are
charging us twice.
Now. at this point I can't even
trust the City of Quincy Utilities.
from that expose in which' their own
;employees were basically not read-
ing the meters correctly and basically
stealing elecricit. Can't people truly
reahze -t hen things don't look right.
they need to fix it. That is what gov-
emment is for. Many four own gov-
emnment officials are paying huge
electric bills? Why do they let this
continue. I know that electricity
could not have possibly tripled since


1999? People, we need to ask hard
questions. Why do some pockets of
town pay such a high bill and others
don't? How can we fix this?
. know.. Free market!! Whay does the
city of Quincy have a monopoly on
the utility service?
Why can't I get Talquin Electric
Service? Why can't I chose which
company.I would like my money to
go to? As an American, I can choose
every other service or merchandise
and whom IT wouldd like to purchase
from. I belhe\ e if w\e could choose
the best company who offers good
service, great prices, etc then maybe,
just maybe, the City of Quincy would
step up. Now in no way, do I blame
any of the employees or service peo-
ple who work diligently, I trust that
most of the employees and even the
people who run it are truly bound by
bureaucracy much like a lot of the
government agencies in this town.
However, we must do something
about these outrageous bills before
more people flee Quincy as it is too
costly to live here. The saddest thing
is that I love my home, I love my
neighbors, I love my town...it truly is
a gem. But as a teacher in this town,
$500.00+ electric bills are really
crazyand suffering in the heat and
the cold just to stay in a comfortable
and affordable bill is nuts.
I know that one could say, "You
need to budget better.' I do. Many
months the entire block is stunned at
the amount of the bills especially
when you know you have tried to
really focus on energy saving tech-
niques in sour home.
I know I am not alone in this. City of
:Quincy,. "\e really need to address
this situation.

School fight

Continued from Page 1

Brown.
The fight lasted about 10 minutes.
according to Young. But that didn't stop
students from calling parents on cell
phones. Parents started pulling up and
taking their children home Friday.
The two groups involved in the fight,
Killer Hard Boys (KHBI and Top Side
have had confrontations before in the
community. In fact, the resource officer
assigned to the school was in a training
in Orlando to learn about gangs in
Florida. No one noticed that KHB had
on spray painted T-shirts until the fight
ended. Brown said the students were all
wearing jackets when the arrived at
school so the shirts went undetected.
"We arrested 11 and tw o ran off the
campus. We know vwho they are and
we'll pick them up." Young said. "They
have been suspended for ten days and
they will be coming here. The teachers
have been asked to send their lessons.
They won't be walking the streets. At
least two of them are already on proba-
tion and this may have violated that
probation. I don't now what the judge


will do to them." he said.
Young said he was able to get the par-
enis of si.x of the students involved to
come to his office Frnda afternoon for
a meeting. The parents. Young said.
told him that they would support what-
ever actions he took. "We've sill got a
problem. People think there aren't any
problems because it's being kept quiet
and in-house. It's (problems at the
school being kept from the media. Par-
ents need to know w hat's going on at
West Gadsden the house is torn up."
he said.
School Superintendent Reginald
James said steps have been taken by the
school district to insure student safety.
"One resource officer has been added
and we have made some admirustrauve
changes that should help. We have a
plan that will stem group actiity." he
said.
James said that as of Monday no par-
ents had removed their children from
the school, but many \wanted to know
what his office had in place to handle
the situation if it arses again And. he
added, he didn't think that fight was
worth an article in the newspaper.
A few weeks ago Young and James
held a meeting with all of the male stu-
dents at the school about life. The same


had been done at East Gadsden and is
scheduled at Shanks Middle and
Havana Middle. Fighting was included
in the man-to-man talk and. according
to Young, students asked a lot of ques-
tions "I told them the reality of it, but it
doesn't seem to sink in until they go to
jail." he said.
Under the ne%\ rules of school yard
fighting, students no longer fight one-
on-one. The new term is called "deep
six" where students don't get invol ed
in a fight unless the\ have at least six
fnends or family members with them.
Young said Thursda 's school bus inci-
dent reared up again Friday morning
because one boy said his brother had
been hit.
"I told them. sitting right here in my
office. that if the student who went to
the hospital had died. they all could
have been charged with murder."
Young said. Formunatel the student
only suffered a concussion and was
released to his parents Friday after-
noon. "He'll be okay, they just told his
mother to keep and eye on him." Brown
said.
Brown said there is no truth to the
rumor that a student had a gun. "There
were no weapons involved at all," he
said.

Gretna hires new police chief


by BYRON SPIRES
Times Staff Writer

Gretna has a new police chief,
Ferman Richardson.
Richardson was sworn in Tues-
day night as the new head of the
Gretna police department by city
clerk Karen Condry. His wife
Ardesta was by his side and many
of his friends and relatives, and
the Gretna City commissioners
looked on.
Each commissioner welcomed
Richardson to his new post as
chief.
Richardson told commissioners
during his police department
report that he had big plans for
the city's police department.
"I envision a police department
that works with people, with


friendly officers that treat people
with respect," Richardson said.
Richardson said he wanted the
department to get back to com-
munity policing. He added that he
wanted to let kids know that the
police department can come in
peace, and not just in times of
problems.
There are plans, Richardson
said, for a community-wide day
on November 12 between 11-2 at
the city hall. There will be hot
dogs and drinks for the kids. In
addition to the goodies, he said,
there will be representatives from
Workforce and FAMU's Project
Choice giving out information
about their services.
According to the interim city
manager, Richardson's contract
was still being ironed out, how-


ever the city advertised the posi-
tion with a $32,000 annual salary
plus benefits. Richardson was
formerly with the Quincy police
department, before accepting the
position as chief of the Gretna
police department.
In other business:
SMayor Franks formed five com-
mittees with commissioners as
chairperson. She asked that each
commissioner recruit members
for each committee from local
citizens. The committees with
their chairperson are: Business
park, Comm. David Sailor; Fire
department, Comm. Anthony
Baker; Renovation of the city
hall, Comm. Jarvis Alls; the city's
comprehensive plan, Comm.
Nadine Smith; the city's charter
revision, Franks.

Ferman Richardson as his wife Ardesta watches. photo by Byron Spires


Franks noted that these commit-
tees were formed to start making
some progress in areas that
needed help in the city.
* One citizen complained of prob-
lems with some of the remodeling


done through the city's recent
CDBG housing grant. The citizen
said the roof was leaking after
only a year of being repaired.
City utility director Charles
Hayes and Alls agreed to visit the


home and inspect the problem.
* Hayes told commissioners that
plans for street paving are on
schedule. He said that the utility
department is currently working
on replacing some of the water
lines before the streets are paved.
He did not give an exact date for
the paving to start.
* Commissioners discussed the
current interconnect with the
Quincy water wells from Mt.-
Pleasant. The interlocal agree-
ment has not been completed, city
attorney Harold Knowles told the
commissioners, but he expected it
to be completed soon.
* Mayor Franks presented city
clerk Karen Condry with a plaque
from the city for a job well done.
Franks said she had nominated
Condry for the statewide honor
and since she did not receive it,
she wanted her to know how
much the city appreciated her
work.


County to hold hearing on Deer Ridge Estates


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

Saying they were sympathetic
with the recent personal hardships
of first Deer Ridge Estates' attor-
ney David Theriaque, and now one
of the principal developers
Richard Yates, the Board of
County Commissioners voted to
hold a hearing 14 days from Tues-
day, Nov. 1, to resolve any isuues
the county requested the developer
correct in the subdivision.
In a letter dated October 25,


2005 from Theriaque to assistant
county attorney Paul Sexton, The-
riaque said the loss of a close fam-
ily member of Yates' "precluded a
meeting of Home Placement, Inc.
with our firm to consider for final
action the proposed settlement
agreement which resulted from
our negotiations on October 11,
2005."
County Attorney, Thornton
Williams said that while no agree-
ment has been legally signed as a
settlement with Deer Ridge devel-


opers, there have been significant
improvements. He said he felt the
county and the developer could
reach an agreement within the next
ten days. "They are actually work-
ing out here and that gives me a
certain level of comfort," Williams
said.
Deer Ridge Estates home-
owner, Arthur Cyr said he has seen
dramatic changes in the property
from what it was before. "As a lay-
man it looks okay to me," he said.

each month. The blame for the
increases can be traced directly
back to Hurricane Katrina, Hur-
ricane Rita, and Hurricane
Wilma.
"The sooner we lock in our
subcontractors, the better. They


will have time to order materials
at today's prices and they will
know what jobs they have com-
ing up and when," said Jay
Smith of AJAX. He said that by
March of 2006 the company
should begin "moving dirt" for
the construction phase. "The site
plan will be completed by
December 15 and we \ill pres-
entpit to the Pipnniling and Zoning
Commission for permitting,"
Smith said.
Board member Issac Sim-
mons asked if the district could
save money, by re-letting the bid.
"At this point in time, we would
lose quality. The site work has to
be redesigned totally because we
changed the site," said Wayne


Bottled water needed for South Florida


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

TheCity is Quincy is asking
for help from its citizens to help
others.
"We got a call last Friday
from a local minister who asked
if the City of Quincv would d sup-
port a drive to collect bottled
water to be taken to south


Florida. particularly the Fort
Lauderdale area, where there is
a great need for water," said
Willie Earl Banks, city man-
ager.
Anyone \\ho wants to donate
water should bring it to City
Hall during normal business'
hours, and to the' fire station
after hours, ""We will have a
truck parked outside of the fire


Station during the East Gadsden
Homecoming Parade Friday
afternoon and people can drop
off water then, too," he said.
Once the truck has been filled
with bottled water, a volunteer
driver will take it toFort Laud-
erdale. "The people of this city
and count\ have big hearts and I
,know this is the kind of effort
they can get behind," he said.

Dixon. He said he didn't want to
appear insensitive to Theriaque's
hospital visit due to chest pains or
to Yates on the death of his father,
but that it has been three weeks
since the parties agreed and no set-
tlement, in writing, reached.
With winter coming, commis-
sioners were concerned that grass
planted to prevent some of the run-
off would not take root in time to
stop further erosion. "I know they
have done what the Department of
Environmental Protection told
them to do, but have they done
what we told them to do?" asked
Dixon.

Shepard, director of facilities.
The new school will be built
across from the former Greens-
boro High School and will have
600 student stations and a gymn-
saium that seats 1200 comfort-
ably.
The original school site was
abandoned after it was discov-
ered that the property was also
the site of a cemetery.

God knew that there would

tears to cry.. He knew there
would be trials when
His children ask Him

But He's our Heavenly
Father. And He has taken
us by the hand to lead us
through the sorrow s that we
cannot understand.

God has all the time we
need-He feels the pain \\e

George

Washington Pie


Photo by Byron Spires
A really sweet guy
Quincy Police Officer Larry Bourdeau got to be a very popular guy Monday night as trick-or-treaters,
descended upon King Street. Bourdeau was handing out candy by the fistfuls to eager halloweeners.


by Paul F. Joyner, Ph.D.

Some years ago I read of a
preacher who, as a teenager, had
worked in a bakery. He said that
the bakery displayed one kind of
pastry which became a very popu-
lar item. It was called "George
Washington Pie". It was popular for
two reasons: It was attractive and it
was inexpensive. A large square
could be purchased for a nickel and
it was a delight to people of limited
means. It never occurred to the
teenager to question why it was so
much less expensive than the other
items. One day he discovered how
it was made. The old baker in the
little shop just took the leftovers of
stale bread and cake. The old baker
mixed them together and com-
pounded them into their own spe-
cial type of pastry. After the prod-
uct was properly embellished with
an attractive and tasty sauce;.cut
into generous squares, and then
properly displayed, it looked like a
delicacy fit~for a king.
George Washington Pie was the
baker's answer to "hash". There
was not a lot of planning and
organization put into it; and its fla-
vor varied from week to week
depending on what the left overs
were at the time of baking.
There is a danger in letting one's
life become George Washington
Pie. Without any planning and


without any quality ingredients, life
can easily degenerate into nothing-
ness. It may look like it has body,
and it may have the appearance of
being tasty and appetizing, but if
one looks under the surface it will
be discovered that it is a life of
hash.
Life was never intended to be
lived without pattern and organiza-
tion. There is work to be done,
decisions to be made, and plans to
be formulated if a given life is to
reach its objective. A person can no
more expect to drift without pur-
pose through life and succeed, than
a student can expect to drift
through college and receive a
degree.
God had a Promised Land for His
people who had been for many
years in bondage to Egypt. These
people spent forty years wandering
in a wilderness and finally saw that
if the Promised Land was to be
had, the enemy must be defeated
and the land must be conquered.
They heard God's chosen leader
say, "I call heaven and earth to
record this day against you, that I
have set before you life and death,
blessing and cursing; therefore
choose life, that both you and your
seed may live."
Be in church Sunday!!
I invite you to visit the Berean
Church located in Chattahoochee,
Florida, south.of the old high
school building. Dr. Joyner may be
contacted at (850) 674-2633.

Moore


Continued from Page 1
the local television stations that
Moore had been involved in some
financial discrepancies in her posi-
tion as financial supervisor for the
city.In an interview Tuesday with
Quincy's human resources director,
Anne Sherman, Sherman said that
disciplinary action had been taken
concerning the discrepancies.
According to Sherman, Moore had
used the city'sscredit card to rent a
car for personal use. Sherman said
that Moore had rented the car using
the city's credit card, but intended to
pay for the car with her own card or
money when she returned the car.
The problem occurred, Sherman
said, when the car was picked up
instead of being taken back to the
rental company. The rental company
rah the city's card for payment of the
vehicle. The exact reason for the
rental car or how long it was used
was not discussed in the interview.
The total cost of the rental, Sherman
said, was slightly over $1800.
Sherman said that the city's policy
concerning misuse of the credit card
included disciplinary action and/pr
termination. Moore received a week
off without pay as the disciplinary
action.
In addition to the credit card prob-
lem, Moore was also found to have a
discrepancy in her.leave tilne.Sher-
man said the auditors brought it to
the city's attention when going over
the 2003-2004 audit that was just
completed. The discrepancies, Sher-
man said, were found when the
auditors took random samples of
employees' time and leave accounts.
Sherman explained that the reason
it had not appeared before now was
that the city has a policy that, if you
do not use it, you will not lose it
concerning leave accumulation.
That policy allows employees to roll
over sick and leave time from year
to year. So, she said, it is not uncom-
mon for some employees to have a
number of hours accumulated. A
large number of leave hours is not
necessarily a reason for suspicion.
Moore has worked with the city
since 1998, Sherman said, and it was'


unclear exactly when the discrepan-
cies occurred. Sherman said that the
city had contacted the vendor that
provides the city's computer pro-
gram, asking for a way to deter-
mined how and when the discrepan-
cies were keyed into the city's com-
puter system. Sherman said that
there was no way to find out who
exactly entered the information into
the computer.
The discrepancies in leave, Sher-
man said were about $4100.
In an odd twist of fate, Moore had
already turned in her November 18
resignation to the city, Sherman
said, back in September, before the
city's meeting with the auditors. The
resignation was for personal rea-
sons.
Moore has agreed, Sherman said,
to pay the money back to the city
before she leaves November 18.
Sherman said that the city has
changed its time card and leave pro-
cedures. They must now be
reviewed by the human resources
department before going to the
finance department.

them. They, (the shooters) might
have been frightened away because
when you shoot someone you expect
them to fall, but these two started
running," Corder said.
Both of the men were treated at
Tallahassee Memorial Hospital and
have been released. No suspects
have been found.
Anyone with information on the
crime is asked to call Corder at 627-
9233.

that discussion, commissioners
decided to revisit it during a work-

Two other properties were also

However, commissioners tabled

erty can be appraised and an envi-
ronmental assessment completed.

*Governing Board application
incomplete. All resumes not submit-
ted.
Other school districts with the
same concerns as Gadsden County
have also denied the company's
application. "We felt it was too gen-
eral to get a feeling for what they
were going to be able to accom-
plish," Mary Ann Haas, Flagler
County's executive director for cur-
riculum and instruction, told a St.
Petersburg Times staff writer two
years ago. That same year, Acade-
mies submitted applications in
Orange, Seminole, Marion, Osceola,
and Volusia counties. Haas wrote
that in each case the company with-
drew its proposal before a board
vote, or was rejected.
But before the board made its deci-
sion, it heard an impassioned plea
from the Rev. Henry Durant of Mid-
way. He told-the board that Midway
citizens has been misled by those
who oppose the charter school. And,
he said, he failed to see how a char-
ter school would be a slap in the face
of the public school. "We're doing
something to uplift our schools.
You'd be surprised how many of our
students are intimidated by big
schools," he said, suggesting that the
charter school would be smaller and
more student friendly.
Midway's mayor, Delores Madi-
son, said the city has been without a
school for 36 years and that the
charter school would bring back stu-
dents whose parents have opted to
send them to school in Leon County.

way, donated 100 acres for a charter

Man did he ever brush me aside last week.
Cal.in had the right coat on 9 of 10 picks to my
bad 6 of 10 paint job as I once again am under
500 for the year
Onl 4- weeks are left in the season and I bel-
ter get on track if I hope to break even much less
have a winning year.
This past week was World Series time and the
subject of baseball was m the air.
An% time the subject of baseball comes up
around Quincy the name Hilton Williams is
bound to be mentioned.
Hilton is the 'voice' of the Quincy Dodgers
having been the announcer at the local teams
games for close to 15 years. Prior to that he
played for the Dodgers for over 20 years.
Hilton was a star baseball player at Shanks in


the early 70's and was one of the first players on
the local Post 84 teams restart m their early years.
Hilton is a supervisor at McKenzie Pank-Line
Trucking a place he has worked for the past 15
years.
He's married to the former Elease Robinson of
Quincy and has 2 daughters. 3 grand daughters
and a grand son. Their acutvites keep him busy
along with his work and the Dodgers.
A well \ered sports fan his 'voice' says this
about the following college football games this
week.....
FLORIDA over VANDERBILT... .Gators defense
too strong.
FSU over NC STATE......Noles play well at
home.
FAMU over N.C. A&T.....FA.MU in a close one.
SOUTH FLORIDA over RUITGERS....A Bull
win could put them in the Big East picture.
VIRGINIA TECH over MIAMI.....Hokies a little
too strong.
BOSTON COLLEGE o\er NORTH CAR-
OLINA. ...Eagles are pretty good on both sides of
the ball.
ARKANSAS over SOUTH
CAROLINA......Gamecocks in for a let down
after big win last week.
NOTRE DAME over TENNESSEE.....Irish are
looking pretty good this year.
HOUSTON over UCF.....Cougars have a better
offense.
FLORIDA ATLANTIC over TROY.....Trojans
having a down year.


If I don't win this \week I'll be having a real down
year, so ['11 say.....
FLORIDA over VANDERBILT... But mark my
word. the Gators will struggle.
FSU over N.C. STATE.....Noles may have their
hands full too.
FAMU over N.C. STATE.....Two teams from
North Carolina lose in Tallaha;see on the same
day.
SOUTH FLORIDA over RUTGERS ...Bulls
need to win this one to prove Louis, ill. win kwas
no fluke.
VIRGINIA TECH o\er MIAMI ...Playing in

NOTRE DAME omer TENNESSEE.....It will
take a miracle for Tennessee to even be boy l eli-

Jaguars fall to



Godby 35-21


Play them even
after first quarter
East Gadsden got off on the right
foot last Friday night in their game
against the state's sixth ranked and
top district 2-3A team Godby.,
Early in the game on a trick half-
back pass play Ricky Gennie col-
lected a throw\ froni Micah& Brro n
and covered 75 yards to put the
Jaguars up 7-0 after the p.a.t. kick
by Robert Russ.
That seemed to stir the.Cougars
up and before the first quarter was
over they went ahead 21-7.
After that East Gadsden played
even before losing 35-21.
Emmanuel Francis got his armed
cranked up and passed for a pair of
first quarter scores hitting DeAndre
McDaniel with 3 and 9 yard pay-off
tosses for Godby.
'A 13 yard run by Santwan Moore
accounted for the other Cougar first
quarter t.d. and Francis threw
another touchdown pass, this one to
Reggie Litman, early in the second

SAsh Parker scored touchdowns
on a pass reception and a run to lead
Port St. Joe to a 23-0 win over West

Ashley Davis 'returned a punt 62
yards to put the Sharks up 16-0.
Parker's 44 yard run made it 23-0
mid-way quarter 2.
Neither team scored after that.
West Gadsden did get it's ground
game going and Ron Burns wound
up with 125 yards rushing to lead
the Panthers offense.
The loss left West Gadsden with

Before the half the Jaguars struck
when Ronald Gordon returned a
Godby fumble 32 yards for 6 points.
Another conversion kick by Russ
made it 27-14 at the half.
Francis threw his fourth touch-
down pass of the game in the third
quarter with Kendall Williami, col-
lecting a6 yard- toss fpr,, score and
it was 35-14.
Later in the third quarter the
Jaguar's Willie Johnson got to the
end zone on a 9 yard scamper and
when Russ again kicked the point
after it was 35-21.
The Cougars couldn'tpull farther
away after that. East Gadsden
threatened once in the fourth quarter
but ran out of gas.
"We played hard, I felt." Jaguar
coach Rodell Thomas said. "We are
missing some folks due to injuries.
Facing a team like Godby is tough
enough without having to play them
without some of your best players."
East Gadsden closes their season

The Seminoles bring in a 7-2
record.
"This game is big for us." Says
Thomas. "A win would give us a

improvement after
game last year."

No. 2 Ocala St. John stops


Munroe's chance at Regional


By Susie Morris
Even though there had been one
year between the last meeting
between Munroe and Ocala -St.
John Lutheran in volleyball, the
result was the same. Apowerful St.
John team with twenty three wins
and a number two state ranking,
rode into Quincy Saturday for the
Class A Region 1 semi-final match.
They rode out with a win and a
chance to play John Paul II on Tues-
day for a trip to the Final Four in
Lakeland next week.
St. John, riding the hitting skills of
much recruited' and All State junior
hitter Lauren Richardson, won three
games 25-15, 25-11, 25-16. In each
game, the two, teams would trade
leads until the mid-way point of
each game. Then, St. John would
run off strings of points until reach-
ing 25.
Senior hitter, Mandy Clark, was
held to seven kills under her average
by the height and blocking skills of
the St. Johhn team. She finished
with 4 kills. Clark also played stel-
lar defense with eleven digs. Jes-
sica Joyner tallied 6 assists and
Melody Brown finished with 2 kills
and six digs. Jill Purvis had two
key blocks at the net.
Munroe loses three players from
this year's teams four-year starters
Clark, Joyner and Sallie Willis.
Willis has been out of commission
since undergoing ankle surgery on
an ankle broken during fall baseball
on October 9. Clark and Joyner
have set new school volleyball
records for career kills and assists.
Coach Glen has these comments to
make about the game, "This year
we had the same post season line up
as last year which was both an
advantage and disadvantage. We
knew what we were up against St.
John Lutheran, which was an advan-
tage, but we also knew we were up
against St. Johfi Lutheran which

obviously is a very strong team.
"This year our team has been
struggling mentally which reared its
ugly head once again in the post sea-
son at a critical point. We were
right there with St. John in the first
game, and even took the early lead,
which unfortunately we were unable
to maintain.
I believe we tried hard and did
what we could against them, and
definitely had a better showing than


last year. I'm looking forward to
getting to the post season again next
year and hopefully the third time
will be the charm against St. John."
The team will return seven play-
ers, six of which have been starters
at some part during in the season.
The team finished the season 12-11
with all losses coming to either
ranked teams or teams making the
playoffs. The team is coached by
Emily Glen and Mike Dolan.

that Bassmaster Magazine lists Lake #Just Say f

many days already the Jackfish out-bit the Bass bout 2 to 1.
We have noted that the long distant, calls have encreast in reference to

to find the Shad for the Bass hit and the Freshwater Shrimp for the Perch. 599

Dear Gadsden, Liberty & Calhoun
County Residents,
'wo 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.

Getting ready for the next one


Quincy firefighters receive search and rescue training


a lot of thinking. "You had to do it
right or it did not work."
James Hondricks liked the rap-
pelling as well. Hondricks said
that they were taught how to rig
the ropes for rappelling and lower-
ing victims and to tie a lot of dif-
ferent specialty knots.
"It's important," he said, that
you tie the knots correctly. Tying
the ropes he added was also a way
that a single climber could raise
himself or a victim.
Much of the equipment used to
climb and lower victims is used by
mountain climbers, but has been
formulated for search and rescue
techniques.
In addition to climbing the fire-
fighters learned how to find and
retrieve victims. One scenario
involved cutting a hole in a bus
and removing victims.
For Smith, who has been work-
ing for a year to get his firefight-
ers trained in search and rescue
techniques, the training is two-
fold. "We can use this training in
our everyday firefighting and res

cue job," Smith said.
There are six more firefighters
that will be completing the course
in December, bring the total of
Quincy firefighters trained to 18.
The training will also involve
an ongoing training program. "We
will need to be updated regularly
and will train several times a


year," Haire said.
The Quincy firefighters will be
a part of a regional Unit Seven
search and rescue squad.
Smith said that in the event of a
disaster some firefighters who
have completed this program will
be called to duty to help search
and rescue activities. The local


team will be receiving additional
equipment within the next few
days and will also receive a search
and rescue vehicle. There will be
no expense to the city for the
equipment.
"It is being provided by the
state and federal government,"
Haire said.

Pierce, Paul Mathews, Stoney Hall, Mark Bradwell, Tellie Mathews, Ricky Baker, Sgt. Keith Paul, Lt. Curi
tis Bridges, Keith Van Benthuysen, James Honderick, Michael Clark and Chief Howard Smith.

Times Staff Writer

A category five hurricane hits
Appalachicola head on. Devasta-
tion is rampant, but it's not over.
The hurricane drifts to the east and
heads straight for Quincy. Hun-
dred-mile-an-hour winds whip
through downtown, trees are down
everywhere, houses are knocked
off of their foundations and block
after block lays in ruins. All over
Quinc_ people are trapped in
homes and businesses.
Does this sound like a scene
from some catastrophe movie?
Since Katrina this scenario is no
longer some scriptwriter's fantasy,
but instead a scary reality. The
cold hard facts are that everyone is
vulnerable to a natural disaster.
The Quincy fire department is
preparing for such a scenario.
Twelve fire fighters have com-
pleted the Urban Search and Res-
cue sponsored by the Florida Fire


building, how to remove a victim
from underneath a fallen building
and how to get a victim up or
down steep inclines.
One of the major techniques the
firefighters have learned, accord-
ing to Lt. Scott Haire, has been the
use of ropes and pulleys.
"We were given about an
hour's classroom training each
day; the rest of the time it was
hands-on. We had to know how to
rig ropes and pulleys to transport
victims out of tight spots," Haire
said.
Although they received exten-
sive training on how to rig the
ropes to lower or raise a victim,
the firefighters were left to their
own means when it came to the
practice sessions.
"They showed us how to do it,
then let us do it," Haire added.
Haire said that they were given
scenarios such as getting a victim
down the outside of a room six
stories up and it was up to them to

"Each of the 12 officers have
completed an intensive four week,
'160-hour course in search and res-
cue techniques," Quincy fire chief
Howard Smith said.
Last week in the Quincy city
commission meeting the 12 offi-
cers were recognized by the com-
missioners for successful comple-
tion of the course.
Smith told commissioners that
the course cost $4,000 per man,
but that the city had incurred no
'expense for the training. This had
been picked up by the state and
federal government as part of the
preparation for Homeland Secu-
rity.
This type of training, Smith
said, was going on all over the

use their training and wits to get
the victim down.
There was, one catch, however:
the trainees had to play the victims
as well.
It was very serious training,
you not only had to be sure that
the rigging was correct for your-
self, but for the victim as well.
Throughout the course all of
the trainees had the opportunity to
be victims.
Officer Paul Mathews said that
it was hard work, but the group
learned a lot and had some fun at
the same time.
Mathews said that part of the
training was to crawl through
some very tight places, find the
victim and then get them out, all
of this with all of your equipment
on.
Rappelling off the side of a six
story building seemed to be the
activity that most of the trainees
liked, Sgt. Keith Paul said.

RobertF. Munroe Day School visits the Quincy Fire Station
"Miss" Debbie's first graders had many fire safety lessons before they visited the Quincy Fire Station. All
students practiced fire escape drills at their homes and decided on a safe meeting place. The students
reviewed their addresses, phone numbers, and the proper way to report a fire. They also practiced the
method of Stop, Drop, and Roll. Hannah Pope said, "Do not be afraid of the fireman if your house is on fire
because he is there to help you." Kaci Hall said, "Remember to never, never hide." "Miss" Debbie's class
is ready for fire drills at school and at home. Fireman Stony Hall and Lt. Todd Pierce are shown with the
first graders.

Trips for seniors

planned for holidays
Jackson County seniors have trips planned Dec.
16 and 17, 1 night, 2 days to Christmas at Cal-
loway Gardens, Pine Mountain and Warm
Springs, GA. Visit the Christmas Village, ride the
Jolley Trolley to view thousands of musical
lights. Also visit Warm Springs and shop till you
drop. Eat lunch at the Bulloch House Restaurant
and visit FDR Home and Museum.


Currently there are three exper-
imental breeding lines in breeder's
seed increases at the North Florida
Research and Education Center at
Quincy. Two experimental lines
are black-seeded and one is white-
seeded. Over 100 additional breed-
ing lines are also being evaluated
for desirable flavor, seed yield, hi-
la color and pest resistance.
UF/IFAS NFREC plans to release
several cultivars for commercial
production in the southern U.S. in
2006.
Vegetable soybeans are growing
increasingly popular as a healthy
snack or vegetable because of the
benefits associated with lowering
cholesterol, increasing dietary fiber
and contribution of natural
isoflavones to our diets.
"This nutritious bean is great
tasting and good for you," said
Monica Brinkley, the UF/IFAS Co-
operative Extension Director for
Liberty County. "Edamame con-
tains isoflavone, which has been
shown to have heart health bene-
fits, containing about 38% protein,
and is also rich in calcium, vitamin
A, and phytoestrogens."
When compared with commer-
cially available vegetable soybeans
presently marketed in the U.S.,
Florida-developed lines have supe-
rior disease resistance and yield
potential for the southeastern U.S.
Florida experimental vegetable
soybean lines are classed as Matu-
rity Group VII and VIII soybeans.
For more information on Florida
Edamame and recipes, visit
http://nfrec.ifas.ufl.edu/edamame.h
tm.


When it comes to developing and
introducing new vegetable crops,
the University of Florida/Institute
of Food and Agricultural Sciences
(UF/IFAS) is on the cutting-edge.
For the past 25 years, the USDA-
ARS and UF/IFAS have been de-
veloping, vegetable soybean lines,
known as "Edamame," adapted for
the southern United States.
Research at the North Florida
Research and Education Center
(NFREC) has been conducted by a
multi-disciplinary team that has
been working together on all as-
pects of Edamame production,
from development to end-user us-
es.
"The Edamame research is a
great example of a team of re-
searchers and Extension faculty
working together to introduce a
new crop to vegetable producers,"
said Dr. George Hochmuth, Center
Director at NFREC. "The team
consists of a crop breeder, a pro-
duction specialist, and an extension
agent, who is interested in the end
use of the product. You have the
entire spectrum covered from vari-
ety development to culinary use of
the product."
The UF/IFAS Edamame lines
were selected for pod yield, disease
resistance, determinant growth
habit, enhance flavor and
isoflavone chemistry. Isoflavone
content, while beneficial to our
health, contributes to the bitter off-
taste commonly found in standard
soybean varieties. Decreasing the
bitter flavor without eliminating
the isoflavone content of the seed
has been a major selection focus.
