'Cold case'


pair not guilty

in kidnap,

robbery case

by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

Two Gadsden County men, Gabriel Allen
James and Quintarius Reshard Shorter, were
found not guilty by a jury of kidnapping and
,attempted armed robbery Tuesday.
The pair, both 23, were allegedly involved
in a home invasion in Chattahoochee on
December 22, 2003.
According to Clyde Taylor, attorney for
Shorter, "Identity was an issue and wit-
nesses called by the state, including the
.alleged victim, Barry Corker, either remem-
:bered nothing of the events or otherwise
gave grossly conflicting accounts of what
happened on that evening."

County denies

hospital firm's

access request

by ALICE DU POINT
Times Editor

Mike Lake, CEO of Ashford Healthcare
Systems, Inc., the company hired to manage
Gadsden Community Hospital, sent a memo
Monday to county manager Marlon Brown
and Sheriff Morris Young.
S"Pursuant to Judge Reynolds' order signed
this date. (Nov. 21, 2005) His order indi-
cated that we are to provide you with the
Hours of Access and an employee list.
Please be advised that the Hours of Access
are 24 hours per day and 7 days a week.
With the power on, we will have individuals
in the facility 24/7. Attached please find a
list of all employees who will at some point
in time need access to the facility," Lake
wrote. More than 100 names were on the list
pf people needing access,
Tuesday. Brown answered.
"After reviewing this request, Gadsden
County considers the request for 24 hour, 7
day a week access to the hospital to be
unreasonable therefore the county is deny-
ing it but providing access in a fashion that
the county believes is appropriate under the

The news wasn't good for Gads-

Modern times and highways may have
changed the appearance of much of Gads-
den County, but for Willie Cox and his
family it's still farming country. For nearly
150 years the Cox family has farmed the
Cox Creek Farm along what is now Pat
Thomas Parkway, a bustling four lane high-
way that connects Quincy to Interstate 10.
His grandfather, William Shackleford Cox
Sr., settled the land way back in the mid
1800's and there has been a Cox living and
owning land continuously at the Cox Creek


ates ever produced in Florida.
While the state rate was up, in
Gadsden County the graduation
rate was a dismal 45.9 percent,
the lowest in the state. The
Department of Education bases its
graduation rate on data that fol-
lows every student from ninth
grade to graduation, yielding a
more precise calculation. Florida
is the only state that documents


individual student records to
determine a true, four-year gradu-
ation rate.
"The decline in Florida's high
school dropout rate is attributed to
continuous improvement by.
minority students. From 2003-
2004 school year to 2004-2005
dropout rates for African-Ameri-
can, Asian, Hispanic, and multi-
cultural students decreased. High-


Farm ever since. That distinction made the
Cox Creek Farm one of Florida's Century
Farms, a honor given to any farm that can
prove continuous ownership of the land for
100 or more years.
Gadsden County has 17 farms scattered
across its rolling hills that are listed as
Florida Century Farms.
The Cox family applied for and received
the designation in 1990. At that time they
received a small plaque to display.
Recently a much larger sign appeared on
their door step and has since been dis-
played in the front yard. Cox is proud of
the sign and the distinction of being a Cen-


est students showed the greatest
improvement in dropout rates,"
noted a press release from the
Department of Education.
Here's how Gadsden County
compared to other districts in the
region:
* Franklin County: 80.0 %
* Jackson County: 78.6 %
* Jeffferson County: 68.1 %
* Leon County: 79.8 %


Gadsden graduation rate state's worst


* Wakulla County: 85.5 %
This is how the county has fared
for the past seven years:
* 1998-1999: 46.0 %
* 1999-2000: 50.7 %
* 2000-2001: 51.0 %
* 2001-2002: 52.4 %
* 2002-2003: 48.1 %
* 2003-2004: 43.1 %
* 2004-2005: 45.9 %


A Cox family has lived here ever since...
William Shackleford Cox, Sr. settled the farm

farm has meant to his family.
He grew up tilling the soil like his grand-
father and father had done. His
father, Williari Shackleford Cox Jr., had
taken over his share of the family farm and
continued in his father's footsteps. For
Cox it was the natural thing to do, to fol-
low in his father's footsteps and farm.
As fate would have it the farm now sits
only a few hundred yards from the Quincy
city limits sign. It has not always been
that way Cox said. Things have
changed dramatically along the Cox's
stretch of Highway 267. Cox, who has


lived at the home place for nearly 8 years,
said he could remember when it was a dirt
road that meandered through the south side
of the county.
He was one of eight brothers and sisters,
and the youngest. It would be his fate to
keep the family farm going, but there
would be a war to be dealt with for Cox,
and a family to raise before the piece of
land he called home would earn its Century
Farm honors. Cox grew up with dirt
under his fingernails as he learned to till
the soil at the side of his grandfather and

commissioners


want audit
by BYRON SPIRES
Times Staff Writer
Three Quincy city commissioners are ready to
have the books at city hall checked.Commission-
ers Derrick Elias, Finley Cook and Andy Gay all
asked for some type of forensic audit to be done
to determine where exactly the city stands finan-
cially.
SElias started the ball rolling by asking that the


city have an independent auditor to come in
"right now" to see where the city's finances are
instead of waiting until September when the
city's state audits are due.
Gay followed right behind him and said he was
"prepared to ask for a forensic audit" of the city.
Gay said he wanted to hear what the other com-
missioners had to say.
Cook asked city attorney Jack McLean, for an
explanation of a forensic audit. M c L e a n
explained that it would be an audit looking for
some type of wrongdoings in the city's books.
Cook said that he was "all for it".
Commissioner Keith Dowdell had concerns
about the cost of such an audit, the scope of the
services that would be required, and if it would be
a city-wide audit or left to certain departments.
He said that a lot of decisions would need to be
made along with the decision to start an audit.
Dowdell had asked for an audit back in July


while the city's auditors were still in the process
of doing the state required audit. He explained
that he wanted the auditors to audit only the
finance and customer service departments at that
time.
McLean responded that there would be some
cost involved in such an audit and possibly a con-
siderable amount of time. McLean said that he
and city manager Willie Earl Banks had already
been discussing the possibility of an outside audi-
tor.
McLean said he has talked to someone with
forensic auditing experience about the possible
scope of an audit. He wanted the audit to be done
under the direction of his office, because of the
legal ramifications involved in the audit.
Cook said he was uncomfortable with an "in-
house" decision on what the commission needed
to do. He wants the state's input as to how to han-

2 Gadsden County Times November 24, 2005


Young's
by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
Give or take a few days it's been a
year since Morris 'Young, the first
.black sheriff in Gadsden County since
reconstruction, took office.
"It's been a challenge. We've had a lot
of accomplishments, but we still have
a long ways to go," he reflected. Just a
few years ago people looked at him as
if he had lost his mind when he said he
wanted to become the sheriff. His own
wife, Kathy, said she thought he was
crazy. Not because he wanted the job,
but because she wondered why he
wanted to take on such an 'awesome'
.responsibility.
"I remember the night of the election,
J fainted. But, I am so grateful to God
for what he had done for Gadsden
County. We have to put aside aside our
differences and from this day forward
work together," Kathy Young told an
audience of Gadsden County Sheriff's
Office employees, Young's family and
well wishers, who came for a Thanks-
gving dinner and got much more
Thursday.
Young is the first to admit that he has
had to handle pressures unlike he has
ever experienced. His faith, employees
who are dedicated to the community
and citizens who want a safe commu-
nity have all contributed to this first
year that he has called a success.
"When I took office there were a lot
of things that I wanted to do and
change. I wanted to make it happen for
all of the people of Gadsden County. I
am the sheriff for Gadsden County.
Not white Gadsden County, not black
Gadsden County, but all of us," he
said.
One of the things he wanted to do
was bring proportion to the employees.
"If you look at it today, the offices and
staff here are nearly 50 percent black
and 50 percent white," he said. As of
November 2005, there are 21 black
females, 20 white females and one


first year
female American Indian. There are 41
white males and 42 black males
employed at GCSO. Young said he
wanted the office to reflect the popula-
tion.
During the first year of Young's
administration, the criminal investiga-
tion unit closed over 375 cases. "The
cases involved everything from stolen
cell phones, robbery/theft/burglary,
domestic violence, child abuse, sexual
abuse, stolen vehicles, identity theft,
missing persons, criminal mischief,
forgery, assault on law enforcement
officers, suicide, deaths, and homi-
cides," said Major James Morgan.
The percentage of closure is 44 per-
cent of the cases. "This may seem like
a small, rural place, but there is a lot
going on here," Young said one day as
he rode through rural Gadsden County,
at the height of his efforts to put a stop
to dog fighting in the county.
To date, there are over 500 cases that
investigators are actively trying to
solve.
The GCSO Narcotics Unit has been
involved in 120 drug investigations for
the past 12 months and 80 offenders
have been arrested. Eight of the 80
have been federally prosecuted. A total
of 20 search warrants have been served
which produced the following:
*$12,000 in money seized
*600 grams of powder and crack
cocaine
*39 pounds of marijuana seized
*1,223 grams of methamphetamines
and oher dangerous drugs off the street
*129 marijuana plants recovered
*25 firearms
*20 vehicles impounded, seized four
vehicles
Young replaced one position as major
with four. There is a major for investi-
gations, the jail, patrol and emergency
management. "These are all in the
process of getting cross trained. We
can't afford to have one person know
one job. This way if a person is out,
someone can step up and continue," he

year as Gadsden County sheriff.


said.
As a candidate he promised to reopen
17 cold case murders. He asked for and
got help from the Florida Department
of law Enforcement. To date four
arrests have been made in two cold
cases.
Young said new forensics helped
solve the cases. "We're very close to
solving a couple more. We're still
interviewing people and there are
some promising tips," Young said last
week.
The seven murders that occurred in
the county this year have all been
solved. "I think the key was putting all
of our manpower on the cases as soon
as they occurred. We questioned every-
one who could possibly know some-
thing, from family and friends to for-
mer co-workers. The results have been
successful in that area," he said.
As a former school resource officer,
Young said he believes he has made a
difference in how the youth see law
enforcement. "I have beefed up the
school resource officers. I have been
working with the Department of Juve-
nile Justice on grants, I am constantly
in the community talking with. young


people. I think the key to a lot of this is
visibility and letting them know that I
care and that I am there for them," he


said.
Young, however, has made it very
clear that he will help them stay out of

trouble, but once they cross that line
they have to pay for breaking the rules.
Just recenlty he approved a GED pro-
gram for inmates to prepare to take the
GED. "A lot of them are back in jail
because they don't have skills and
maybe with the GED, they can get out
and earn a legitimate living," he said.

fatalities in Gadsden County. Young
decided to do something about it. He
formed a traffic unit to help deter

Young admits the albatross around his
neck has been the jail. More inmates
incarcerated than it is designed to hold.
years of disrepair and the soaring
prices of food and medicine have com-
bined to give him a colossal headache.
"The jail is a challenge, more than a
challengee" he said with an easy
smile. He said he is working closely
with the county manager and the budg-
et director to find a way to get a grip on
spending while still delivering servic-
es. "There are a number of options I'm
exploring where the jail is concerned,"
he said.
Young has a few more gray
hairs in his close cropped hair. The job,
he said, is not easy but he is enjoying
the ups and well as the challenges.
"One thing about it, I'm still learning."
he said. Does he give himself a grade
of "A' for the first year? He's way too
modest to do that, but some of the
employees say "it's been a good year"
under Young's leadership.

$107,000 owed to City of Quincy tied to hospital bankruptcy


by BYRON SPIRES
Times Staff Writer

Quincy city commissioners held a
special meeting last week to discuss
several pressing issues. Primary
among those issues was how the city
intended to handle the $107,000
utility bill owed by Ashford Health
Care Systems, Inc. that has been
operating the Gadsden Community
Hospital.
Ashford filled Chapter 11 bank-
ruptcy last week and is now under
protection from creditors by the fed-
eral bankruptcy codes.
Chapter 11 bankruptcy is typically
used for businesses, and allows
them an opportunity under the fed-
eral court system to restructure their
debt. It allows a business to continue


to' operate under the supervision of
the bankruptcy court or its
appointee.
Bankruptcy for a business is a very
complicated process and failure to
adhere to the laws can put the City
of Quincy in a precarious situation,
city attorney Jack McLean told
commissioners.
The city had turned off the elec-
tricity to the hospital last week and
currently the hospital is closed.
Over the past couple of years the
issue of the hospital utility bill was
before city commissioners several
times. Each time the -same discus-
sion arose concerning the health and
welfare of those under the care of
the hospital. Because the hos-
pital is a health care facility, just cut-
ting the utilities off is not an option.


There is a required procedure
including a 72-hour notice.
The commissioners agreed each
time to allow the hospital and staff
to work out a payment plan to catch
up the delinquent utility bill.
This time, however, city manager
Willie Earl Banks told commission-
ers that plans were already in place
to shut off the hospital's electricity
when the state closed the hospital.
Once the' state shut them down,
Banks said he had the electricity cut
off.
The bankruptcy included the
$107,000 that was owed to the city.
That money will be included in the
pay-back plan that the bankruptcy
court determines for Ashford. The
exact date for the bankruptcy hear-
ings was not discussed in the meet-


- inse. .ia.

ing, However, the process can be
long and drawn out.
The problem the city has now,
McLean said, was that since Ash-
ford has filed bankruptcy, it wants
the electricity turned back on.
In addition, McLean referred to an
article in a regional paper that stated
that the hospital intended to "jerk
people around in the bankruptcy
court", and that "we have money" to
pay our bills.
McLean told commissioners he
had sent a letter to the attorney rep-
resenting Ashford, complaining
about the statement. He was con-
cerned about the way the bank-
ruptcy was being handled.
That statement received a host of
comments from the commissioners.
Commissioner Derrick Elias said he
had read the article and had co -
cerns over the statements. Elias safd
that the city had been lenient in tie
past with the company, but said, ''I
don't want to be lenient again."
Elias also asked if the city could
require a deposit. McLean said yes.
Commissioner Andy Gay agreed
with Elias. "We have been
more than fair with them," Gay said.
Gay added that he wanted to see


the lights turned back on, but he also
wanted some assurances that the
company would pay its bill.
Mayor Sherrie Taylor was also
concerned about the city being paid
on the past bill and making sure that
future bills are paid. Taylor
said that the city was in a better pos-
ture, with the hospital being closed
and without any patients, to set a
better foundation for negotiations.
Commissioners Keith Dowdell and
Finley Cook were excused from the
special called meeting.
McLean said that in his letter he
had asked for adequate assurance of
payment including: a cash deposit, a
letter of credit, certificate of deposit,
a security bond or prepayment of
utility consumption in the amount of
$50,000.The amount was based on
the hospital's average bill ranging
between $17,000 and $20,000 a
month and a pattern of running three
months behind.
A consent order was received Mon-
day, November 21, from the United
States Bankruptcy Court. Judge
Lewis M. Killian, Jr. issued the fol-
lowing order that the debtor provide
$20,000 in cash immediately and a
$50,000 surety bond as deposit for
utility services. The bond must be
provided by December 14,2005.
In the event the debtor fails to pro-
vide the surety bond, the city may


Teen sets fire to a mobile home


By ALICE DU;PONT
Times Editor

A 15-year-old sits in the county
jail after admitting that he set fire to
a mobile home, and broke into a
neighbor's home and stole a gun, in
the High Bridge. community south
of the Quincy city limits last Friday
and Sunday.
A deputy was dispatched to 135
Gray Ave. around 7:35 in reference
to a mobile home on fire Friday.
Deputy Greg McSwain wrote in a
report released by the Gadsden
(County Sheriff's Office that, when
he arrived on the scene, one of
three mobile homes was fully
engulfed. Deputy McSwain then
checked the two neighboring
-mobile, homes, and ,discovered, both
the front and back doors had been
forced open. Spent matches were
found throughout one of the' unoc-
cupied mobile homes.
Sunday afternoon, deputies were
called to the residence of Henry
Miller, also in the High Bridge area
and a neighbor of the 15-year-old,


in reference to a home invasion and
the theft of a .22-caliber handgun.
Miller told authorities that someone
entered his home and took the
weapon ,from a kitchen cabinet.
Miller, who was not at home, said
the 15-year-old reported that he
saw someone enter the home and
take the pristol.
The teenager was present when
deputies arrived and weaved a tale
that started with his visiting friends
across the street from Miller when
he saw someone enter Miller's
house and come out carrying a pis-
tol. "He stated he chased the sus-
pect, but-then realized he had a gun
and stopped," the report stated. He
told deputies that he didn't know
the person's name, but could recog-
nize him and had seen him in the
neighborhood.
Before the ink was dry on the
report, deputies were called back to
the High Bridge community Sun-
day afternoon a te\\ h:uiiLe._ south of
the Miller residence. "The teenager
admitted to family members that he
had taken Miller's gun, and to other


crimes including the fire that
had occurred in the community. i;:!
Miller reported that someone
brought the stolen handgun back'
and left it on his porch.:'
The teen's grandmother said sh"'
called deputies late Saturday nighi
after he began an argument with her
over a radio. "During the argumen(
he became irate amd began cussing,
and swearing at her and left the resp
idence through the back door," thep
report stated. It is unclear whether''
the teen was attempting to re-enter-'
the home, but a front window was
broken as he attempted to remove'a'
screen. He ran into the wood's
before authorities arrived, but wa^
apprehended later that night.
"There is something wrong wth,
him. He needs to get help, but I
don't know what to ask for," the
grandmother said. Her fear.it that i
he is sent to the Juvenile Detentio
Center in Tallahassee, he ma,
encounter more problems.
"All I can do right now is wait foi
him to see the judge on Dec. 1," sh
said .

Quincy. It further states that if the

The commissioners approved an
agreement with the owners of props

city. The agreement will allow
the nonconforming use of a ware-
house to continue until this tomato
season has been completed, but no
later than December 31. The prop-
erty has been used as a tomato pack-
ing house and is limited to light
commercial use only.
In the past few months commis-
sioner Gay has asked that the prop-
erty conform to the city's land use
requirements. A lawsuit ensued
from the owner, Frances Kelly, who
agreed to drop the suit if the city
would allow the current tenants to
complete the season.
"I'm glad to see the city had all of
its ducks in a row," Gay said, addinig
that the agreement was a "win for
the residents of district four."

Gadsden County Times November 24, 2005 b



G.E.D. offered at county jail ..-


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

Marquis Davis, 24, knows
perfectly well when his life
went south. It all started when
he decided to sell drugs and
surround himself with people
of questionable character.
"The first time I was incarcer-
ated was when I was a senior at
Havana's Northside High
School. I was dealing drugs and
hanging around the wrong peo-
ple," he said. Today, Davis is
serving another stint in the
county jail. He is the father of a
six-year-old and wants to
change his life. The orange,
jailhouse-issue jumpsuits don't
appeal to him. He wants, he
said, to turn his life around.
A new program, started at the
jail through a partnership with
Tallahassee Community Col-
lege, can help Davis and others
like him who say they want to
change, start with education.
Wednesday afternoon the first
General Educaton Diploma
(GED) class was held at the
county jail.
"We had 41 in the class," said
Major Shawn Wood. He said
when he first mentioned the


idea to inmates, they thought he
was crazy. But some of the
inmates, who had found them-
selves in the revolving door of
incarceration and freedom,
wanted to give education a try.
"One of the problems was
they couldn't get jobs once they
got out. A lot of employers
don't want to even to talk to
them if they don't have a high
school education," Wood said.
He said he heard that TCC was
looking for students and he had
people who needed to get an.
education.
"I told the inmates that they
might as well get their GED
while they're here. They're not
going anywhere and they're not
doing anything else. Some of
them are closer to a GED than
they think, others are a little
further away, but if they start
here, they can continue when
they get out and eventually earn
their GED," Wood said.
Monday class was used for
evaluation. "They were given a
test so that we could determine
where they are (academically)
and what their needs are, to'
design a (educational) plan for
them," said Kimblin NeSmith,


of TCC's adult education pro-
gram. "Many of these young
men are bright. Their skills
need to be focused in a differ-
ent direction," NeSmith said.
Having a GED will help Davis
reach his goal of becoming a
brick mason. "I know what it
takes now. I'm 24 years old and
a father. I have to start doing
things for myself and my son,"
he said.
Travis Jackson, 22, dropped
out of high school as a senior.
He can't point to any specific
reason for abandoning educa-
tion. He is back in the county
jail for violation of probation
on a drug charge. He doesn't
know how long he will be there
this time. But he, decided to
enroll in the GED class because
"it can't hurt" he said.
He had dreams of playing in
the National Football League,
but he never grew more than
five-three tall and never
weighed more than 170 pounds,
so he decided to sell drugs.
That hasn't worked either
because he keeps getting
caught.
Monday, his goals were more
realistic. "I want to get my

released.


GED and when I get out, I want
to get some training and
become a mechanic.
Most of the inmates in the first
class were from 18 to 25. "We
had a few who were older, but
not many. I think the younger
ones can be saved. I see a lot
more potential and they still
remember a lot of what they
already learned in school,"
Wood said.
Ira Bunion of Havana dropped


out in the tenth grade. He wants
to become a chef. Wednesday
he learned that to become a
chef he had to learn a lot of
mathematics and science.
"I didn't know that. I just
thought you had to know how
to cook," he said. If it takes
starting with the GED class,
then he says he is ready to do it.
Wood said that although
Wednesday was the first day, he
has already seen an improve-

ment in the attitudes of inmates:

as the key. We can't build*
enough jails and we shouldn't,

at other alternatives," he said.


Workforce Plus helps local workers find jobs


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

Kimberly Moore believes in her
job. The new chief executive offi-
cer of Workforce Plus, Moore
feels that everyone who wants a
job should have one and everyone
who wants to advance on the job
should have the opportunity.

work and help them find success
in the job market. "The services

There are specific goals, too.
Moore said with the new Volun-

be a void of qualified and trained

"Our goal is to hire 80 people to
become childcare workers. The
training is free ,through Workforce

She said the concept of Work-
force Plus is intended to build a
better community by linking busi-
nesses that need qualified employ-

want career advancing employ-

One of the newest programs to be
launched is the professional.

Gadsden County Times November 24, 2005 7


1st Baptist Church


hosts Christmas


program Dec. 9, 11


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

Each year for the past 10 years.
the First Baptist Church has given
,a gift to the citizens of Gadsden
County.
It's the gift of music.
This year is no different, and on
'Friday. Dec. 9 and Sunday, Dec.
11 at 7:30 p.m. the gift will be pre-
sented.
"It's a little different ever\ year.
This time the theme is 'Come Let
*Us Adore Him' and, of course.
:we'll be singing some old and
new selections, but mainly the
concert will consist of a variety of
Christmas songs," said Bruce
, Thomas.
SThe choir. which numbers about
fifty singers, represents volunteers
from throughout the community.
"'Most of the people are from First
Bapust Church, but we have peo-
ple who have been singing with us
for several years." Thomas said.
There is the added bonus of a full
orchestra. Most of those musi-
cians are Fofida State University


students.
The choir is conducted bN Bill
Dixon who is an accomplished
director and musician in his own
right. "Bill has an excellent back-
ground. he has worked in Atlanta
and has collaborated on a
Grammy-winning album."
Thomas said.
Thomas said the concerts are
unique because of the high qual-
ity. since most small towns don't
have access to an orchestra. and
because there is no admission to
either performance.
Work on the concert started as far
back as August when a gioup of
performers sat down to decide
\\ which songs woould he performed.
'Some of the people come back
year after year while others will be
with us for the first time." Thomas
said. "We generally have a good
turnout on both evenings,"
Thomas said.
Anyone who wants to experi-
ence the true meaning of Christ-
mas duough music shouldn't miss
this year's concert.

returned to the classroom and taught the third grade at Leonard Wesson Ele-r

son's Teacher of the Year in 1975. In Tallahassee she was a member of Bud-

circumstances," Brown said.
He said the first reason, for denial
is that in the county's opinion the
access to the building should be
consistent with the use that Ashford
presently has at the hospital.
"Your usage of the hospital has
been severely restricted in light of
'the Emergency Order of Immediate
Suspension of License issued by the
Agency for Health Care Adminis-
tration (ACHA). on November 4,
2005. That order prevents Ashford
from engaging in the operation of
the hospital for anything other than
day-to-day business and administra-
tive operations. Second, this prohi-
bition is re-inforced by the Order
issued by Circuit Judge George
Reynolds on Nov/ 21, 2005, which
restates that there is nothing in the
Emergency Order (which) prohib-
sited Ashford from continuing day-
to-day business and administrative
operations."
In the letter Brown told Lake he
should have requested hours of
Success that are consistent with nor-
Smal business and administrative
hours. "If there are special circum-
Sstances, that required administrative
and business duties to be performed
outside of, normal business hours,
you should have provided the justi-
Sfication for such a deviation."
Brown said Lake also seemed to
have listed all employees. "It is
impossible for the county to deter-
mine the appropriateness of your

S"It is good way of life," Cox will
tell you if you ask him about farming.
He remembers \ell the long hot days
of summer in the fields that lasted
From day light to sometimes past sun-
down. Itis in his blood he will tell
you.
Thankfully it wasn't all work. Cox
said he remembered getting 25.cents
on Saturday aftemoon to go to the 'i'
shou. It ~a.s only a four mile %alk
into town to see'a Saturday afternoon
matinee movie with Hop-a-long Cas-
-sidy. a short film, a cartoon, a bag of
popcorn and a drink before walking
back home.

were lean years as well. The farm

,.almost everything you ate: vegeta-

course hogs and co\ws. You smoked
i our own meat. And most impor-
tantly you sold part of what you
raised to buy the things you couldn't
grow,
Born on December 6, 1924 Cox
was just the right age in 1943 to
receive one of those letters from
Uncle Sam. At 19 he u"as
drafted into the US Army and sent to
war. Cox would miss his beloved
jfarm and think of it often while in the

Cox and would take him nearly two
years to o\ ercome his injury.
For his valor, Cox received the Purple
Heart, the Pacific Campaign Medal
with tw\o bronze senice stars, the
Philippine Liberation Medal with one
bronze star. a good conduct medal
and the World War Two Victorn
Medal.
It was in the fox hole the day he'

that prayer works.

Cox's life. It w\as during one of the
trips home while he was recovering
from his injuries that he met his
future \\ ife. Willie Louise Puckett.
Cox w as discharged in 1947 and the
two Willies were married in 1949.
Mrs. Willie, as she is affectionately
called by those w ho knowt her, will
tell you that moving to a farm was a


dramatic change from the city life she
had enjoyed in Quincy. "I had to
learn to be a farm girl pretty, quick,"
she said. She was soon immersed in
country life filled w ith goats. hogs,
raising chickens, gathering eggs and
putting up vegetables. Now she
wouldn't have'it any other way.
The pair has lived on the farm for
nearly 57 ypars, where they raised
three children, Martha, David and
Wesie\. Their children grew up on
the farm much like the elder Cox.


request as provided because the
business and administrative func-
tions are not provided," Brown
wrote.
According to Brown, the County
feels it is reasonable to provide
access to the hospital during normal
business hours, from 8 a.m. to 5
p.m. He offered to extend the hours
of access to 6 p.m. without further
justification.
Brown reminded Lake that the
order issued by Judge Reynolds
provided that Ashford may copy
records, computer drives, etc., but
that no original items can be
removed by Ashford.
"In order to facilitate the orderly
removal of copies from the hospital,
prior to taking copies from the hos-
pital, Ashford should notify the
county of the copies to be removed
and the quantity. This notice will
prevent any disruption or misunder-
standing of what documents are
being removed from the hospital,"
said Brown.
Two weeks ago, Ashford asked for
a hearing to gain access to the hos-
pital after it had been shut down by
AHCA which cited six pages of
infractions. The county, according
to county attorney Thornton
Williams, never denied Ashford's
people entry to the hospital. "They
never asked," Williams said follow-
ing the hearing. "We had no reason
to keep them out of the business and
administrative offices," he said.
The company filed bankruptcy last
week listing among its debtors the
City of Quincy for $88,000 in
unpaid utility bills.



They had their chores and helped
their parents raise the crops and ani-
mals. They grew up active in 4-H,
showing cows at the North Florida
Livestock Show, winning many
awards and two grand champion
steers. Farm life became part of
their lives as well.
The pair has three grandchildren and
two great grandchildren, all of whom
still love the farm and visiting with
grandmama and papa.
Today the Coxes enjoy their retire-
ment. Mr. Willie has farmed con-
tinuously except the \ears he spent in
the service. He has cut back to a
small garden not% and leti his ;on i
Da\ id carr on the the Cox tradition,
of tilling the soil.
Today David raises longhom cows
Sand a few horses, and farms on the
same land his great-grandfather raised
his crops.
Financially Mr. Willie had to sup-
plement his farming activities, and
back in the sixties he branched out
and worked in construction with
Stoutamire Construction. When
Stoutanire retired, Mr. Willie decided
he would go into business for himself
and became a licensed building con-
tractor. Over the years he has built
many local homes and completed
hundreds of remodeling jobs. he said.
The teo Willies. as the\ refer to
themselves, are active in their church
work at Thomas Memorial Bapust
Church. Mrs2 Willie is a charter
member and Mr. Willie is an hon-
orary deacon.
When asked about their years on the
farm they are both quick to tell you
that there is nothing better that farm-
ing and that countmtry living is the best.
But, most importantly they will tell
you, their family is their true blessing.

not from what someone said I said,"
Milton continued.
In other matters, the parent of an East
Gadsden High School student said she
was concerned and disturbed with a
CD passed out to students during the
recent homecoming pep rally. The
CD, she said, contained explicit lan-
guage. "I am very concerned and very
disturbed. This is not acceptable in my
home and with my child," Denise
Lewis said.
Lewis was also concerned that her
daughter had not been allowed to take
a make-up chemistry examination


after she was out ill with an excused
absence. Finally, she said the child
wore a headband that was not
approved school attire and a teacher
took it from her. Lewis said when she
attempted to talk with the teacher she
was met with rude and insulting
remarks. "It is disturbing to me that
my childis still in that class," she said.
Her fear is that her child will be treated
unfairly because she and the teacher
had words. Lewis requested an apol-
ogy from the teacher.
Milton assured Lewis that the kind of
music her child brought home is not
condoned by the school district. He
said he would ask Superintendent
Reginald James to investigate all three
of her complaints and if an apology is
warranted from the teacher, she will


get one.
James said he talked with Lewis prior
to Tuesday's meeting and told her not
to lose any sleep over the matters of
concern. "The media is here and I
don't want anything misunderstood. I
said for you not to not lose any sleep
over this because I was going to take
care of it, did I not?" James asked.
Lewis said he did.
In other matters, a parent asked for
help from the school board because
her son, a senior at East Gadsden High
School may face failure if teachers are
not able to handle his "playfulness and
talking in class". "I'm doing my part
as a parent. I'm having issues because
they (teachers) disregard him because
he plays and talks. The teacher is not
holding his attention. He needs two

OPINIONS


finding Roads

By: Byron Spires


Missing a good friend

I have met only a handful of people in my life that I con-
sider to be true givers.
One of those, I am sad to say, passed away this past week-
end.
Grace McKinney has fought illness for the past twenty or so
years, but through all of her physical problems she still con-
tinued to help people.
I met Grace and her husband Truman (Ken) when I was still
in high school. I met them because they were helping young
people through an organization called Campus Crusade for
Christ.
The very first meeting that I went to was retreat at the
McKinney's house in Glory.
I would be less that honest if I didn't tell you that I was
really there because I had heard there would be a lot of girls
at the retreat.
Well, I was a teenager.
There were a lot of girls there, but the best thing that hap-
pened to me was not the girls. It was meeting Grace and Ken.


From that meeting I would have the best two friends that
anyone could ask for. They became my mentors, my confi-
dants and most importantly my friends.
As some already know Ken passed away after a lengthy ill-
ness.
During the whole time that I have known Grace I have
never known of a time that she wasn't helping someone.
Even when she was the sickest herself and lying flat of her
back in the hospital, she was counseling or consoling some-
one: the person sharing her room or next door or the nurses
or the doctors. She never knew when to quit.
Grace, I believe, was put on this earth to help people. She
believed in God and her actions proved her faith.
I am sure that there tre hundreds of people over the years
that Grace's life impacted. She always was willing to give of
herself even when she had very little to give.
Grace has been a pillar of strength for a lot of people. She
never really preached to you as some people try to do when
they give you advice or are helping you through some dire
strait in your life..
She just offered what she could \ ith ni strings attached.
For Grace it was always unconditional help, hot something
you had to pay back later.
Actually, her name said it all: isn't that what grace in the
Bible means, unconditional love?.
I have talked on many occasions with her about God and
especially about her faith.tYou know anyonelthat has been
through the physical ailments that Grace had and was still be


even remotely cheerful had to be a miracle within itself.
"Hey babe," she always said to me when we talked on the
phone or I visited with her. I would ask her how she was
doing and she was always "tolerable."
I have asked her many times how she was able to deal with
so many personal health issues and still be able to help oth-
ers. She never really thought she was doing anything extraor-
dinary. To her it was a way of life and she really had
no way of answering the question, except by saying that her
own health was in "God's hands" and she would let him
worry about that.
That is an easy statement to make, but a very hard statement
to live by. I think Grace lived by that very philosophy.
She shared her knowledge, pain and experiences to help
others and treated others as she would like to be treated. She
never faltered, she was always willing to give of herself.
That is what being a Christian meant to Grace, giving of
herself.
She did not wear her faith on her sleeves for all to see, but
instead used it to improve the lives of those around her.
Grace is no longer bound now by her physical limitations.
She no longer needs those leg braces. Her constant pain is
gone and her soul is free of the binds that this life cast upon
her.
I believe that early Saturday morning Grace passed from
this world to the next into the embrace of a loving husband
and family that had gone on before her.
Thank you, Grace McKinney for being my friend.

Thanksgiving spirit


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

Students at Gadsden Ele-
mentary Magnet School were
thinking of more than them-
selves this holiday. For the past
few weeks s the students ha;e
been bringing more than.books
'to class. The li.le ones at
GEM\S. grades pre-K through
fifth grade, have also been
bringing items for "The Box".
School secretary 'Angie
Suber spearheaded what started
But to be a canned food drive.
":'There's a little bit' of every-
thing in the boxes now," she
said. Some of the students felt
that families might need such
things as hand lotion and sani-
tizer, so: they brought that,
too."7
SThird grader Lilliana Placen-
sid, 9, brought several cans of
vegetables 'and body wash.
Diylan Rogers, a fifth grader,
contributed canned food,
bobks, and soap. Five-year-old
A-reneshia Brown couldn't
remember what her mom sent
for the boxes. She was clear,
however, on the" meaning of
Thanksgiving. "It means to be
thankful for what you have.
i'm thankful for my mama, my
family, and my grandma Geral-


dine Kerion," she said.
Dylan said he was just thank-
ful for his family "and life on
earth and that's just about it,"
said the 1 l-year-old. His father,
.Wayne Rogers. is a long dis-
'tance truck driver, and some-
times, he said. he's on the high-
way.for \leeks.
. "I love him to' death," he said
and this holiday) will be extra
special because they will be
together. "He's going to pick
me upi at mn grandmother's
house and we're going to
Panama City," Dylan said.
The plan : is to spend
'Wednesday night in Panama
City and eat dinner at a restau-
rant called Panama Willie's.
Thursday morning when they
get back to his dad's house in
Liberty County, his stepmother
Nell, is going to prepare a
turkey dinner with all the triim-
mings.
Lilliana's family is going to
Disney torld and Busch Gar-
dens. But she doesn't take her
sweet life for granted, she's
aware that there are children
who are not as fortunate. 'T:m
thankful for my parents and
family and that I have a roof
over my head," she said.
All of the food collected by
the children, faculty, staff, and


administrators has been
donated to Refuge House for
local families. "The donations
are extremely important to us.
Without these contributions,
we would not be able to help as
mans families as we do this
time of year. Seven turkeys and
five hams have also been
donated by people in Gadsden
County. The filled baskets will
be distributed next Wednes-
day." said Carnell Jones, Gads-
den County's Refuge House,:
coordinator.
Some people will be at home
with family and friends bring-
ing in covered dishes. Sylvia
Roman, 9, can hardly wait for
the big day.
"We're going to my
grandma's house for dinner.
My favorite part of the meal is
the macaroni and cheese that
my grandma makes," she said.
Everybody in Altianna
Baker's family will be con-
verging on her house in the St.
John Community this year and
that's the way she likes it. "I
like for all of my family to be
around, eating and having fun.
The best' part of the meal for
me is the dressing," she said.
She said it's so good she
plans to put a little dressing
aside for herself later.

to link employers to employees.
These partners are essential to the
success of the programs. The only
way for this to work for all of us is
that the partnerships are viable,"
Moore said.
One of the most interesting pro-
grams is the Enterprise Bond pro-
gram. The program provides tax-
exempt low interest bond financ-
ing to qualified manufacturers and
501(c)3 non-profit organizations.
Moore said the program is
designed to improve .low cost
money, to growing and expanding
businesses, including minorities
and rural communities to allow
them to be more competitive in the
market place. '"Loanh aniounts can
range from a minimum of
$500,000 to a maximum of $2 mil-
lion," Moore said.
There is also the Small Business
Administration's 504 loan pro-

gram, which offers interest rates
below those offered by conven-
tional banks, that mature at 10 to
20 years. "These are mainly for
growing businesses with financing
for real estate acquisition, con-
struction, expansion, payment of
'soft costs', and purchase and
installation of machinery or equi-
ment," she said.
Moore said Workforce Plus is as
responsive to businesses as
employees. Another program
available to businesses is the Qual-
ified Target Industry Tax Refund
Program (QTI). This program pro-
vided an incentive for target indus-
tries to locate new facilities in
Florida or,to expand existing facil-
ities in Florida. "The program pro-
vides tax. refunds of $3,000 per
new job created. The incentive
goes up to $6,000 per job if the
company locates in a rural county
such as Gadsden County," she
said, adding,. "If, the. companies
pay higher wages they can earn
even higher awards."

Audit

die the audit.
Elias agreed and said he was not
comfortable with the audit being
controlled by the city attorney. Elias
wanted a city-wide audit as well and
was not concerned about the time it
would take to complete an audit. "If
it should take five or six months, no
problem," Elias said. He was not
overly concerned about the cost say-
ing that "this is one of those
instances where we need to bite the
bullet to see where we are at."
There was also a question concern-
ing the city attorney and city man-
ager already having meetings about
a possible audit.
Elias asked why the commissioners
had not been informed. McLean
said they wanted to make sure there
was sufficient information for the
commission to act on and that there
were some issues that he felt he,
should brief each individual com-
missioner about before moving for-
ward.
Dowdell asked that the commis-
sion not make a decision at Tuesday
night's meeting. He said the prob-
lems did not happen overnight.
McLean agreed to present options
including outside auditors, the
Florida League of Cities and the,
Attorney General's office at the next
meeting in December.
Gay forewarned the commission
that he would be bringing the issue
back up at the next meeting.
In a related issue, Cook asked
Banks about the city's purchasing
policy. He, followed that question by
asking Banks if the city had recently
purchased new vehicles. B an k s
told him that the vehicles had been
purchased for the police department.
When asked by Cook why the pur-


chases were not brought before the
commissioners, Banks replied that
the vehicles had been approved in
this year's budget.
He said that they had not brought
the police vehicle purchases before
the commissioners in the past, and
added that the vehicles were pur-
chased under the state's bid process,
which allows municipalities to pig-
gyback on the state's bids.
Banks was then asked by Cook if
an additional vehicle, a new Ford
Expedition, was part of the pur-
chase. Banks said that it had been.
The vehicle, Banks said,
was to replace his Ford Expedition,
that the lease was up and the vehicle
had 80,000 miles on it. B a n k s
said it was time to trade the vehicle.
Cook said that he thought that
Banks should have brought the pur-
chase to the commission. He said
that the commission had approved a
street sweeper purchase and he did
not understand why these vehicles
did not come before the commis-
sioners.
Cook also asked Banks if there was
a freeze on the city's spending.
Banks replied that there was, and
when asked if essential needs were
being filled when needed, Banks
said they were.
Cook said he was in the dark and
continued to be in the dark when it
came to the city's operations and
finances. He said that over the last
three and a half years he had not
been able to get the information he
felt he needed to make decisions for.
the city.
Cook said that he was receiving
numerous calls and letters from con-
cerned residents about the state of
the City of Quincy. He said that his
door was always open to those citi-
zens should they need to talk to him.

Cotton Pickers...Sisters tell students what it was like
The seventh graders at HMS have been *,.r,
enjoying a novel entitled "Roll of Thunder". ,
The novel talks about the life of a black fam-
ily where cotton played a major role. I [ ,. ;'

were guest speakers for the seventh graders U.
because both ladies had been cotton pickers. - -" .
Mrs. Jones spoke about how a transporta-.,
tion truck would come around picking up
anyone who wanted to go to Georgia to pick
cotton. She said the truck came very early.
The pickers had to ride on the back of the A
truck in all types of weather.
She recalled a time when she was new a cot-
ton picking. A time when she and two of her ,
children picked cotton from early in the *?
morning until late in the afternoon and only
made enough money to buy lunch.
Mrs. Jones gave the children words of wis-
dom as she challenged them to stay in school,
study hard and work for the things they
wanted. I !!!"
The ladies were well received by the group,
the children seemed to be mesmerized by -*
their every word. ;

Long not been
B) Joe Ferolito cessful
for me
through
the years.
Last
week didn't prove any different in my football pre-
diction column.
Darrell Home put it on me hitting 8 of 10 picks
to my 5 of 10. It put an end to a two week win
streak in these prediction games.
The loss also dropped my season mark to 6-6
making me need a victory this week to have a win-
ning year.
Last year I entered rivalry week with a 5-6
record and broke a six year losing streak to my
rival by getting the win which made the overall
series 9-13 with five ties.
I'll try to get things closer this year in this the
28th meeting with son, Joey Ferolito.

Jaguars

win pair

in Chipola

Classic

McLaurin, Jackson
have standout
games

Coach Demetric Salters was
quite pleased with the out-
come of the Chipola Tip-Off
Basketball Classic last week.
His East Gadsden Jaguars
won their two games in the
event defeating Graceville
64-50 Saturday night after
disposing of Rutherford 54-
34 on Friday.
"We had a balanced effort
in both games." Salters said.
"We played solid on defense
and our offense wasn't bad."
Defensively 6-6 sophomore
was a factor inside blocking 6
shots Saturday after having
an 8 blocked shot game Fri-
day. He also collected 17
rebounds in Saturday's game
following a 21 rebound night
on Friday. McLaurin
rounded out his games with
12 points against Graceville
and 10 against Rutherford.
Darius Jackson was the
leading point getter both
night as he shot in 14 against
Rutherford' arid scored "16
against Grace\ ille.
"Overall I was very pleased
with the season start." said
Salters. "Don't get me wrong
there's still a lot of room for
improvement especially in
our decision making on
offense. But I think we'll gpt
,better and pick right up where
we left off last year."
Last year, Salters first as
head coach saw the Jaguars
go 22-9 before losing to Jack-
sonville Ribault in the region
semi-finals.
They opened the regular
season Tuesday night hosting
Miller Co. Ga.
They will play Hamilton
Co. in Jasper next Tuesday
night.

Seminole

Ramlins
By Jack Wingate
As the frost plant predicted, we
had a frost this week. It didn't kill
anything that I know of, but as
frost. We also have had reported
to us that the hornet's nest are half
way up the big trees along the
river. The weather this week still
makes me think the big gators will
not go in their holes this year.
Duck season opened with a real
big bang, good shooting sed some,
others sed poorly, however that's
the way it is always, just according
to where you are, I reckon, same as
fishen.
Me and Miss Joyce lit up our fire
place in the old log house and a
couple of nites it was just fine. We
set and et supper looking at the


fire. There is just something about
a fire that makes the heart warm.
The sucker season has been a
success from what I hear; one man
had a sucker that weighed 13.3 oz.
Now that is a big sucker in any-
body's pond. Nothin like a sucker
side sammich. MMMM.
The specks seems to be biting on
the river ledge about 12 ft. sus-
pended over 20 ft. of water. They
are hard to catch when they are
suspended. The perch looks up as
do the bass most of the time. A jig
is more suited to catch them than is
the minnow. I like to watch my
cork go down when a perch bites.
If you see your cork tremble and
don't go under, he's most likely
setting still and gut hooking himself.
From what I hear the last 26 perch
that was dressed had equal amounts
of mature male and female eggs.

cluded instruction on naval customs, first
aid, firefighting, water safety and survival,
and shipboard, aircraft safety. An emphasis
was also placed on physical fitness.

utes of sacrifice, dedication, teamwork and

tical application of basic Navy skills and the
core values of Honor, Courage and Commit-
ment.

den High School of Greensboro.

Police advise us to limit



opportunities for thieves


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

Everyone out shopping from now through Christ-
mas won't be looking for the same kind of bargains.
"Some folks will be out to rip people off. The
thieves come out at the same time as the legitimate
shoppers. They have their eyes open for opportunity,"
said Officer Tom Murray of the Community Crime
Prevention Unit of the Quincy Police Department.
Those opportunities are what Murray wants to limit.
."There are precautions the average person can take
that will minimize the likelihood of becoming the tar-
get of a criminal. Here are his suggestions:
*Shop during daylight hours
*Be aware of the people around you
*Dress casually; leave expensive jewelry at home
*Shop in groups or, at the very least, in pairs
S*Keep cash in your front pocket or wallet
*Avoid carrying large amounts of cash; try to pay
for purchases with checks or credit cards if possible
*Limit the number of packages you carry
*Do not leave cell phones, purses, CD cases, or
other items in plain sight in parked cars
S*If possible, place purchases in the trunk or under a
covering in a sports utility vehicle
*Remember where your car is parked it is danger-
ous to wander around the parking lot
S*As you return to your car, keep keys in hand
*Do not put empty boxes that contained televisions,
computers, or other high-end items at the curb. Cut up
and discard.
"These safety tips don't guarantee the individual


will not become a victim of crime, but by keeping
these tips in mind it will reduce the chances of falling
prey to a criminal," Murray said.
He added that the holidays are also prime time for
another sort of criminal: con artists. "There are scams
and rip-offs of all kinds. People need to use common
sense. If it sounds too good to be true, then it proba-
bly is," Murray said. Many scams go unreported
because people are embarrassed to have been taken in
by a scam.
"The wallet scam is a big one this time of year.
Strangers will approach a person and say they have
found a wallet and if the person will give them a
deposit they will share the money with them or some
variation," he said. Also, one of the newest is e-mails
stating that the person has won something and to look
for a check in the mail. In the meantime, the person is
asked to send "good faith" money.
"Of course, they will never see the money again,"
Murray said.
The police department will be adding extra patrols
to local shopping plazas to make citizens feel safe.
"We will beef up our foot patrols, too," he said. "Citi-
zens have to take some responsibility. We're going to
be out doing our best, but they need to pay attention
to what we're telling them."
Unlicensed peddlers also will prowl parking lots
attempting to sell everything from toys to perfume
and watches. "If they are legitimate, they will have a
peddler's licensed issued by the City of Quincy. It's
simple, if someone asks you to buy something, ask

There is a broad range of needs in
Gadsden County. Education rank-.
high among those needs.
SWhat can be done to insure that
.more of Gadsden County's students
-reach their potential and ultimately
college is a concern of Tallahassee
Community College's Quinc\
House..- : :. -' i"
SThrough'TCC's "Achieving the
'Dream" program, a combined effort
,by TCC, the Gadsden Coini\.
Schools and community leaders
there will be a series of forums
called conversations. The conversa-
tions will be guided by Public
;Agenda, a nonpartisan, non-profit
opinion research organization.
! The purpose of the conversations is
'to bring together a broad cross sec-
-tion of the community to discuss
,education issues in Gadsden Count\
said Lara Birnback, Public Agenda's
public engagement project director
'in a recent interview.
. One forum has already been held
Where a core group of moderators
were trained to work with small
groups of residents and discuss
-issues that they feel are important to
the county's school system.
This group of sponsors and organiz-
ers, Bimback said, would reach out
to local residents to attend the com-
munity conversations.
. It is one step in helping improve
'education in Gadsden County, Bim-
;iack said.
,.,Dr. Thomas Lovia Brown, a senior
consultant for Public Agenda, was
present at the first conversation and
said that the conversations need to
be a diverse group of residents that
can sit and discuss issues in a civil
manner. The aim of Public Agenda
is.to include average citizens as well
'as experts and professionals and to
insure that all groups and stake-
holder are represented and heard
from, a booklet given to the forum
members stated.
' According to Brown, plans are for
,the forums to involve between 60-
_80 people. These will be
divided into smaller moderated
groups where they will discuss what
'the group considers to be a priority.
That topic will be brought back and
discussed and a priority will be set
by the forum.
These community conversations
have been used in other areas of the
'country with some success.
One example is in Hattiesburg, Mis-
sissippi. Out of the community con-
versations several local clergy
formed a group to focus on educa-
tional issues. The community has
also held community discussions
about the role of race in education.
"We've seen a number of commu-
nity changes," Brown said about
having the community conversa-

"This is a visionary process for the
whole community," Curt Salzburg,
from TCC said.


The next conversation is planned
for sometime in February, Salzburg
said. The exact, date will be
announced.

Wondering what to get for the
person who has everything? You
may be able to pick up something
special and one-of-a-kind from this
year's Christmas Bazaar sponsored
by the Pilot Club of Quincy.
"This is our first Christmas
bazaar and we thought it was some-
thing the people in our community
could get behind and support. What
good about it is that shoppers won't
have to fight for a parking space,
they won't jockey for position at
the bargain tables, and best of all
they will have fun while they shop
and chat with their neighbors," said
Betty Hinson.
The bazaar will be held Saturday,
December 3, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
at the Quincy Garden Center down-
town at the comer of East Jefferson
and Noth Duval Streets.
Hinson said the bazaar will fea-
ture a Secret Santa Room, Christ-
mas gifts and crafts, homemade
baked goods, raffles, giveaways
and "very" gently used garage sale
items. 'Some of our members are
excellent cooks and bakers. During
the baz;iajl e will be taking orders
f6rniade-to-oirder baked goods for
the holidays." Hinsons aid.
All of the proceeds from the
bazaar will go to support the Pilot
Club of Quincy's community serv-
ice projects. The Pilot Club is a part
of an international organization
with the main focus on brain
related disorders. "We specifically
provide service and financial assis-
tance for the prevention and educa-
tion of brain-related disorders. Peo-
ple who shop with us at the bazaar
will be helping the community
while getting their gift purchases
out of the way early," Hinson said.
