Firefighters drop pay grievance


Police officers

take complaint

to next level
by BYRON Spires
Times Staff Writer
Quincy firefighters have dropped their holiday
grievance, but city police officers are taking their
grievance to the next level.
According to Quincy firefighter Stoney Hall,
the local president of the firefighters union, the
decision to drop the grievance was based on the


city's current financial status.
"We are not withdrawing because we think we
are wrong, we just understand the city's financial
situation," Hall said, adding that the firefighters
were willing to work with the city to resolve the
holiday pay. The holiday pay is paid back to fire-
fighters and police officers each year for working
through 10 designated holidays.
Holiday pay became an issue in the middle of
December when the city normally buys back
unused holiday pay.
Several of the police officers and firefighters,
said they were put in a hardship during the Christ-
mas season when the money was not forthcom-
ing.


City manager Willie Earl Banks told the fire-
fighters and police officers at a special held meet-
ing December 20 that the city was unable at that
time to buy back the holiday time. He mentioned
that he had looked at the possibility of paying a
third of the time, approximately $12,000, but was
unable to find the money.
Interim city finance director Christie Joyner
explained at the special called meeting that the
money had not been budgeted to be paid out
when the city staff devised their plan in October
to move the city out of its current financial crisis.
To buy back the time with the city's current
financial circumstances Joyner said would mean
revamping the current pay back plan to bring the


city's bills current.
When asked directly if the city had the money
to buy back the holiday time, Joyner said, no.
The city commissioners were concerned about
the grievances, but considered the issue a day to
day operation of the city and in the hands of the
city manager.
The city faced a cash flow crisis when outgoing
city finance director Neva Reed paid all of the
city's bills at the end of September, clearing the
books for the end of the year. Paying the bills all
at one time instead of the usual due dates created
a cash flow problem for the

The wheels are still in motion with
the county working to get the doors
open and put Gadsden Community
Hospital back in operation. Marlon
Brown, county manager, said he is
trying to set up a closed segsiio -i- ih,
the board .f t Li..UIt commissioners
to try to facilitate the p.ipei ork..
A lot of what the county can do is
driven by what Ashford Healthcare
Systems, Inc. and the state Agency
on Health Care Admsitration do
from their ends. Ashford is the com-
pany that has the lease to manage
the hospital.
Brown said the hospital's license
has not been revoked by AHCA and
that the facility remains a critical
access healthcare facility.,
"I wish I had better news. My frus-
tration is not getting the hospital
open to serve the people," he said.
One of the problems is that Ash-
ford had racked up about $1.5 mil-
lion in fines levied by AHCA. The
county has said it will pay the fines
if that would expedite the transfer of
the license to operate from Ashford
back to the county, since Ashford
has filed bankruptcy. However, the
county is also exploring avenues
that may lower the fines and fees.
If all agree on the settlement, the
money would come from a Trust
Fund set up in the 1950s.
Last week the City of Quincy dis-
continued utility service to the hos-
pital. Had it extended service
beyond Tuesday, the company
would have again been in arrears in
payment. Ashford listed a $107,000
delinquent utility bill to the City of
Quincy as one of its creditors when
it filed bankruptcy.
Brown says he still hopes that all of


the issues can be worked out very
soon. "Then the county can do what
it needs to do for the citizens of
Gadsden," he said.

Banks to

speak to

employees

'State of Quincy
address will focus
on employee issues

by BYRON SPIRES
Times Staff Writer
In an unprecedented move City
Manager Willie Earl Banks will
speak to the entire workforce of the
City of Quincy Thursday morning.
Banks will give the city's employ-
ees a 'State of Quincy' address.
Banks said he intends to talk about
all of the issues that are concerning
the city's employees.
A memo went out, Banks said, to
all of his department heads asking
them to gather questions their
employees had about what is going
on with the City of Quincy.
Banks said that he intends to answer
those questions and has shut the city
down from 8 a.m. until 9:30 a.m. to
allow enough time for him ,to
answer the list of questions. He will
not be fielding questions from the
audience, but will work from the list
accumulated by his department
heads.
Banks said he has already received

-Quincy's City Manager Willie Earl Banks, Quincy Mayor Sherrie Taylor and Gadsden County Manager
Marion Brown welcomed William R. Whitson, president of the Florida City and County Management Asso-
ciation to Quincy last Thursday. The stop was part of a bicycle tour of Florida to encourage and educate cit-
izens on the importance of county and city managers to the community.


Tour de Florida


Government management group's leader


pedals

by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
Before William Whitson became
president of the Florida City and
County Management Association he
would jump on his bicycle and ride
as few miles for fun and- exercise.
After his election, he said, he was
looking for a way bring awareness
6f the organization and its benefits
te the general population. The Tour
de Florida was born.
.Whitson set in motion a two-phase
bicycle tour across Florida. The first
Was completed in October when he
rbde from Atlantic. Beach to Vero
Beach. "That was for the east coast
ahd to test myself to see if I could do
it," he said. The second phase
started December 27 in Pensacola
and will end in Key West on January
1. 2
By the time he arrived at the
Quincy City Hall he was on sched-
tle and had garnered the support of
public officials and average citizens
long the way.
;"What surprised me most was the
friendliness of everyone. People
wanted to know what I was doing it
(riding) for and it. gave me the
opportunity to talk about the origa-
nization. Whitson was met by
Quincy's city manager, Willie Earl
Banks, and Marlon Brown, the
county manager, as well as Mayor
Sherrie Taylor.
Banks serves on the Board of
Directors of the FCCMA, which is
recognized as the third largest pro-
fessional management association
for local government in the world.
"The FCCMA prides itself in its
continuous support of citizens by
offering professional management
along with a very strong commit-
ment and accountability to ethical
behavior," Whitson said.
Banks said that in 1994 the organ-
ization created an educational arm
that included member training. That
educational arm became the Florida
City and County Management
Foundation. The foundation is gov-
erned by an appointed board of
directors, and does not have a mem-
bership.
"I realized that very few young
people were coming into the organi-
zation and in a few years we would-
n't have' many trained city and
county managers. The money that I
am raising along the way will be
used for scholarships for students

for awareness, benefits


who want to become city and county
managers," Whitson said, adding,
"we have to train the next genera-
tion of professional city and county
managers, support public education
efforts about city ad county govern-
ments, fund scholarships in the field
of public administration."
Florida is facing a future shortage
. of experienced, trained management
professionals for its local govern-
ments. Several schools produce
graduates who work in general-pur-
pose local government. However, no
one school has a "local government
track" specializing in the needs,
research, or management concerns
of cities and counties.
There is a concern in,the changing
nature of many national public
administration programs. Florida's
public managers, according to Whit-
son, need a forum in which to dis-
cuss the unique challenges and
opportunities affecting Florida.
Whitson, who is the assistant city
manager of Port Orange, a town of
55,000 just south of Daytona Beach,
said his goal is to raise awareness
and that's why he volunteered to
make the trip. "This ride is an exam-
ple of the commitment that we as
city and county managers make to
our communities. It's an investment
in our cities and counties that pro-
vides an opportunity for govern-
ment leaders to maintain their skills
for delivering the highest and most
ethical quality public service," he
said.


"It is a pleasure to welcome you to
Quincy and to Gadsden County. We
are honored that Quincy is one of
the stops on your journey," Mayor
Sherrie Taylor told Whitson, as she
presented him with a $250 check to
support the scholarship fund.
Whitson had nothing but praise for
the 500 men and women who man-
age Florida counties and cities.
"Florida has been plagued with an
unprecedented number of devastat-
ing storms and the recovery of
many of the cities is a testament to'
their hard work and dedication.
Often the difficult work is done
behind the scenes with little atten-
tion or fanfare. However, the result
is that Florida is extremely fortunate
to have such outstanding public ser-
vants working in its local communi-
ties," Whitson said.
Whitson also made stops in Chat-
tahoochee at the RV Resort, where
he had lunch, and in Midway at the
Flying J to pick up another bicycle.

A cast...a mullet...a dam...

Z. Williams of Jackson county was looking for one more mullet Sunday afternoon below the Jim
Woodruff dam. Williams said that he has caught thousands of the fresh water mullet behind the
dam over the years. He has his special spot at the end of the walkway where the swift water of
the Apalachicola ebbs behind the concrete wall. "You can feel them when they hit the net,"
Williams said as he pulled the cast net back after a near perfect cast. A couple of casts later he
got the one he was looking for. "I needed four, one apiece for me and my friends," he said as he
started to pack his gear up and head home for a mullet supper.

What will you do with the extra second


' From time to time just about
a1 newspaper (maybe televi-
son news people, too)
reporters get cornered by peo-
ple who say they "don't read
the newspaper" as if making a
declaration of importance to
the world. I know they will
hot read this, but maybe who-
ever tells them what's in the
paper will tell them about
this. Or perhaps a "informa-
ion thief" will pass it on.
So, in 2006 and beyond, if
You don't read the Gadsden
County Times, don't tell me
about it, I don't want to knbw.
Your opinion of what we do,
here in general and what I do
in particular don't mean zilch.
.ut if you have read some-
thing on which we agree or
disagree, I would be happy to
hear your thoughts. Some-
times when I hear another
side, I have been known to
change my mind on a subject.
I often meet people who tell
tie what they like or don't
like about the paper in places
like the grocery store or post
office and I am more than
happy to talk about our com-
munity.,
This column is my opinion -
that's all. Nothing else. It's
not right or wrong. It's what
I'm feeling at the time I write
it.
News is different. It's just
the facts. You may be opposed
to the way I write, those facts
and there is nothing I can do
about that. There aren't a lot,
of people who complain about
the news content of the arti-
cles. Usually the one or two
politicians who have negative


comments are those who think
more of themselves than they
ought to, and tend to whine
and complain because I don't
start out every article I write
when their named is men-
tioned by giving them glow-
ing accolades for mediocrity.
Over the years some have
been so bold or so silly as to
come down here and ask the
publisher to remove me
because they "don't think that
I like them". Those are peo-
ple, in my book, who have no
pride or self-esteem. In my
own way I actually have pity
for them.
Before I forget, for those of
you who might not be aware,
my family does not work
here. I am the only DuPont
employed here at this time.
My brother, sister, in-laws,
cousins, and neighbors have
nothing to do with what I do
here. Whether you read th'e
newspaper or not does not
impact them. Whatever you
have to say, I'm willing to lis-
ten, but lay off them, okay?
They have their own jobs and
families to take care of and
what I .do here doesn't affct
them at all. I suggest you hold
your comments about me and
this newspaper until you see
me or call me. That way at
least what you feel will regis-
ter with someone who cares.
I know that in small towns
like ours, folks tend to talk to
the first person they run
across who knows me. Well, I
suppose that's better than in
the past. For years, before my
mother passed, people would
call her and tell (not ask) her


to tell me what stories I
needed to cover and how I
needed to write them. One
woman always called my
mother and it was always
urgent. The urgent news
always turned out to be a
church program or something
about one of her grandchil-
dren. I still get those urgent
church program calls and
urgent First Birthday calls, I
don't mind either. Sometimes
I can help solve the problem
and sometimes I can't.
Then; there are the critics
who read simply to find,
"something wrong". I remem-
ber one woman a few years
ago who called me to say that
the front page was "full of
errors". Well, when we got
down to it, there were two
typos: 'the' was spelled 'teh'
and 'and' was spelled 'adn'.
Of course I apologized for
the numerous errors and said
that we did our best to be per-
fect but on occasion we fall
short of that goal. She said we
needed a proofreader and I
agreed. Our bookkeeper later-
said, when I told her about the
encounter, that if the woman
in question paid her bill we
would be able to hire. a proof-
reader. I have since been told
that this same woman goes to
various restaurants, around
the city, reads the newspaper
and then puts it back in the
rack. I guess that's what you
call an "information thief".
.Still, I don't know how peo-
ple who don't read the paper
get such strong opinions
about what's in and what's
not.


It was only one second, but
it was important enough that
the powers that be decided
we needed to change our
clock and add one second.
I believe it was to make
some corrections in the
Greenwich Mean Time from
a few past eras over the last
century. Officially we gained
the second at midnight New
Year's eve.
However, I have decided to
save mine and use it later in
the year. Kinda like a mulli-
gan. I mean it's a second that
was lost somewhere in the
past, so I figure I should be
able to use it when I want to
use it.
You see, I have never had
an extra second to just do
with as I please. This is a
windfall if you think about it:
I mean to get a whole second
for nothing.
It's like spending your last
five bucks on gasoline and
then finding a ten dollar bill
in the parking lot on the way
-1 ack to the car.. .
So what ain I going to do
.. \\ith my extra second?'"' r'


I've had a couple of ideas.
I first thought about split-
ting it into two parts.
You know, "a split sec-
ond." There have been a
couple of times in the last
year that I could have used
one of those split seconds as
I travelled through the
Atlanta, Georgia traffic.
Having another split sec-
ond at 80 miles-per-hour in
bumper to bumper traffic
seems like a good idea to
me.
I'm probably going back
through Atlanta in the next
year, so I may use it up there.
Also, there have been a
couple of times I've had to
make some quick or instanta-
neous decisions. I would
have given anything at the
time to have an extra second
to think about what I was
going to do.
I could use it when I'm
being rushed by someone.
Instead of saying "give me
another second," I'll just use
my second and \ e'll bo.th be
happy.
. If I am.e\er confronted


with response like, "if you
had only had a second longer
you could have: made it
across the road; made it out
of a burning building;
avoided that shark; crossed
the bridge; swum to the
dock; outrun that bear; out-
run that pack of dogs; held
the world record; talked him
out of it; found the million
dollars; caught the last train
out; missed the tornado or
been the only eye witness to
the best story of the year, I
will use my second.
I may use it when my
grandchild is born in early
February. I just might need
that extra second to enjoy
being a granddad for the first
time.
I have made myself a New
Year's resolution to do a bet-
ter job of not letting things
get under my skin. If I can
hold myself to that resolu-
tion, I expect 2006' will be a
good year.
.If so, I may save my sec-
..ond until Ne\\ Year's eve and:
hang on. to 2006 just a little
lo nger. ... .. .... ,

Heavy winds Monday afternoon down several city trees


Photos and story by Alice DuPont
Heavy rains and winds that gusted up to 50 miles per hour blew through
Quincy Monday afternoon in a fast moving storm leaving in their path
downed trees, water filled ditches, and a short power outage. While
some thought the area experienced a tornado, the National Weather Ser-
vice said that nothing touched down in Gadsden County. Above and at
right: this oak tree fell away from a home on Brumby Street near
Stevens Park in Quincy. The homeowners were lucky that no damage
was caused to their property. Below, a tree fell across Hill Street tem-
porarily blocking the street, but no homes were damaged. A home on
Seventh Street in Quincy sustained several thousand dollars in damages
when a tree fell on the roof.and air conditioning unit. The homeowner
said the winds blew so hard that she was sure a tornado had hit her
neighborhood and was relieved to find out it was only wind and rain.
Throughout the city limbs were blown onto streets. City Manager Willie
Earl Banks said streets were all cleared and power restored within hours
of the storm that is credited for a tornado in nearby Liberty County.

Continued from Page 6
they could know all that God knew
they would be independent of Him.
Nahum Sarna wrote, "The deceptive
nature of the serpent's appeal lay in
its interpretation of godliness which
it equated with defiance of the
tempter's words, eating of the fruit
of the tree merely gave man the
capability of distinguishing right
from wrong and made him a free
moral agent. It immediately pro-
duced in him three characteristics
which could be used for good or
evil:
1. GUILT: In eating of the fruit
from the tree they had deliberately
disobeyed God. In the realization of
that disobedience, they sought to
hide themselves from God. R obert
Raines wrote: "A conscience is not a
gadget built for comfort but an inter-
nal time bomb. It ticks away the
days, ready at a decisive moment to
blow your life apart by turning you
against your self-interest or setting
you apart from your neighbors."
Their disobedience had destroyed
their previous relationship with
God, and their consciousness of that
fact made them seek to hide from
Him in fear and in shame. Rather
than make them like God, they now
saw how far apart they had become
from Him.
2. IRRESPONSIBILITY: When
man separates himself from God, he
becomes an irresponsible creature.
Seeking 'freedom', he discovers
that he has become a slave. Irre-
sponsible to God, he responds to his
selfish passions. Sarna wrote: "Free-
dom and responsibility are burdens
so great for man to bear that he is in
vital need of discipline. Signifi-
cantly, the first divine command to
Adam pertains to the curbing of the
appetite." Man owes responsibility


to God but by his disobedience,
and his consequent ability to choose
between good and evil, he may
make his own choice and too often
that choice reveals his inherent irre-
sponsibility.
3. REBELLION: In effect, Adam
and Eve, by their disobedience, had
become rebels. It is praiseworthy for
man to seek to be like God, if our
motive is to emulate His goodness,
but when our motive is one of self-
ishness and ambition, we become
rebels and traitors. Thus when we
ignore the laws of God and ignore
God Himself we separate our-
selves from God.
Where are you? Are you hiding
behind a tree, seeking to avoid any
confrontation with God? What is the
purpose in your life? Or do you have
any purpose?
I invite you to visit the Berean
Church located south of the old high
school building in Chattahoochee. :

lose weight, many people use the
turning of the calendar as a chal-
lenge to better themselves over the
next 365 days.
TDS Telecom has done some
research on how you can make 2006
a better and more efficient year
online.
"Now is a good time to take a step
back and look at things like how
your e-mail and your files are set up
and figure out what you can do to
clean up your e-clutter," said Con-
rad Marks, Director of Product
Management for TDS Telecom. "A
little work now will pay off for you
in the long run."

Five Online New Year's Resolu-
tions:
1.n. l1Learn keyboard shortcuts Use a
keyboard shortcut to insert a hyper-
link, formal documents, or many
other things. It'll boost your produc-
tivity.
2. Organize e-mail Group mes-
sages by date, sender, or conversa-
tion topic. Set up e-mail rules so you
can prioritize your responses.
3. Organize digital photos Set up
files to arrange your photos by date,
by event, or by whatever works for
you.
4. Back up files regularly Protect
your data by having a backup copy

tion on a writeable CD.

ensure your message is understood.
Also, warn friends when you send

Future scientists at George W.

Munroe Elementary School


On Tuesday, December 12, a
group of fifth grade students, teach-
( ers, and support staff experienced a
very exciting and thought-provok-
ing field trip to the Challenger
Learning Center located in Tallahas-
see. Students viewed a movie enti-
tled, "The Magnificent Desolation
Walk on the Moon" at the IMAX
Theatre and visited the Planetarium


to view "Seasonal Skies: New Hori-
zons."
For most students and some staff
members, this was their first time
visiting the Challenger Learning
Center. The students gained a
wealth of knowledge about astro-
nautical science. The event coordi-
nator was W. Dean McClurkin, fifth
grade teacher.

Florida Bull Test Sale scheduled


The University of Florida/Institute
of Food and Agricultural Sciences
(UF/IFAS) will be holding it annual
Florida Bull Test Sale on Saturday,
January 21, 2006 at 12:30 p.m. CDT.
The Sale will be held at the North
Florida Research and Education
Center (NFREC-Marianna) Beef
Research Unit, one mile west of
Greenwood, Fla., at 4925 Highway
162 North.
One objective of the Florida Bull
Test is to provide the commercial
cow/calf producer a source of bulls
that have been gain tested and thor-
oughly evaluated at the same loca-
tion and have passed stringent health
requirements.
"The bulls in this year's Florida
Bull Test Sale will be the strongest
offering of bulls that we have ever
had," said Dr. Gary Hansen, a
UF/IFAS professor of Animal Sci-
ence, who is based at the NFREC-
Marianna. "A panel of cattleman
will screen the bulls for structural
soundness and disposition. All bulls
have been ultrasounded and will
have passed a breeding soundness
examination prior to the sale. Truly


a set of bulls that will bring perform-"
ance to seedstock as well as com-
mercial cattle herds."
Approximately 75 performance
proven bulls will be sold, including
Angus, Brangus, Charolais, Here-
ford, Limousin, Santa Gertrudis,
SimmAngus and Simmental ,bulls.
Each of the bulls in the Sale indexed
90 or better based on a combination
of gain and weight per day of age in
the Test.
"The bulls are currently averaging
over 4 pounds per day with several
bulls gaining over 5 pounds per day,"
Hansen said.
NFREC-Marianna is a large unit of
UF/IFAS that focuses on agronomic,
forestry, and beef cattle programs.
It is also home to a modem 1,000
acre cattle ranch, a new Feed Effi-
ciency Facility and the Florida Bull
Test Facility.

The Eiffel Tower is one of the best known monL.ments in Europe and the entire
5 world. It is located in Paris, France and is called La Tour Eiffel in French. II ,s also
known as the "Symbol of France".
The Eiffel Tower was designed by the French architect, Gustave Eiffel The tower
was originally built for the Universal Exposition of '889, or World's Fair, held in Paris
France. This fair was to celebrate the centenary or 100th anniversary of the French /
Revolution. The tower was originally built to be the entrance arch to the World Fair,
and was only permitted to stand for a total of 20 years After the World Fair, its
/ antenna became useful for radio and later television signals and the. permit was ,
made permanent, leaving the tower still standing today as a historical landmark.
The construction of the tower began in 1887 and was completed in 1889, taking a
total of three years to build. It stands 986 feet high (not including the tower's antenna),
\\ weighs a total of 7000 tons, and has a total of 1.665 steps to the topi Everv 7 years it
takes 50 tons of paint to cover the entire tower Co protect it Irom rusting 1The Eiffel
Tower held the record of the world's tallest structure until 1930 when the Chrysler (4
Building was completed in New York City.
Today there are over ten replicas of the Eiffel Tower around the world The tallest-
( replica called the "Tokyo Tower" stands in Tokyo, Japan and is 42 feet higher than the,

Let's lace it.
I rm a pretty ,
bad college
football pre-
dictor.
Heading into
the last two
games of the
bol\ I season
I'm a terrible
12-14. And in
the last two
games I've


picked the underdogs as I selected
FSU oier Penn State and Texas in
the national championship game
Wednesday night, so things may get
worse.
But. it's been a fun season, with a
number of great games. a number of
poorly officiated contests, including
the Florida game in Tampa, Mon-
day, and a number of spectacular
individual pla\ s. *
As the season wraps up, I like
e\ei\one else, can't wait till next
cyar.


While on football I'll pick this
week's first round NFL pla\.
The home teams Tampa Bay and
New England %\ill win Saturday.
Sunday will be the % visitors turn as
Carolina and Pittsburgh will defeat
the Giants and Cincinnati.



There was not a lot of basketball
action over the Christmas break for
county schools. Onl\ East Gads-


den's boys and girl's teams have
played the past week.
Things get started back this week
however as all four county high
school teams see action.
Look for a game and support our
local teams.

The Mighty Jaguars' Parick Smith dunks one at the Tallahassee Civic Center last Thursday night during the
Capital City Classic. Smith's dunk wasn't enough to salvage a win against Atlanta's Tri-Cities, however.


Teachers. Students, books and pen-
cils ima, ha.e rested o\ir the holi-

tests to cit up a cons,..latio.n bracket
championship game against \\hite
Count.i\ Iot TcnnL-see.
Down eight points early on in the
contest, the Jaguars stormed back to
make it a nailbiter. Tied at 38 as the
clock ran down, Coach Rod Glenn


put the ball in the hands of his top
senior, Shyrelle Horne. She did not
disappoint. Home sank a 3-pointer
as the clock ran out.
"I am just old fashioned," Glenn
said. "If the game is on the line, I
want to put it in the handsof a sen-
ior. It's Shyrelle's time to shine,
and she came through."
Home finished with a game-high
19 points. Jasmine Grice added 10
points as the team moved to 13-4 on
ihe season.
The Lady Panthers of West Gads-
den lost their 7th and 8th games of
the season this past week. Godby
jumped out to a 24-10 first quarter
lead but the Panthers battled back to


lead 44-38 going into the fourth
quarter. Godby, however, repeated
their first quarter surge scoring 25
points to West Gadsden's 11 for the
win. Chelsea McMillan scored 18

For you who mite want a New
Years tip for good luck in the com-
ing years, think about this, "Once
you leave the house going on a trip,
never ever
go back to t ,
the house .
for some-
thing you

Our Ga. season will last until the 8th
of Jan.
David Roush from Ohio snuck up
on the blind side of a 9 lb. Bass and


landed him. He was well pleased
with his trip to Lake Seminole.
Two Valdosta fishermen fished
Friday and had so much luck they
spent the nite and gave it another go.
On Saturday they landed 30 Bass.
The 5 big ones weighed 30 lbs.
The wind has kept the Perch from
hitting several days over the past 2
weeks but when it is calm between
where Spring Creek dumps into the
river and the channel going up to
Fish Pond Drain some 15 boats were
seen taken Perch 30 ft. deep. Paul
Barkley of Campbell, MO was
down visiting his brother-in-law,
Mr. Smokie Wilson, owner of
Wingates, and caught some nice
Perch which were fried up and et on
Thursday night.
May you have a happy and pros-
perous New Year.

World Religion
Day to be
observed here
Tallahassee is joining over 150
cities and 80 countries around the
world by observing World Religion
Day, first inaugurated in 1950 by the
Baha'i faith.
The event will be January 15 at 2
p.m. This year's event will be held at
Temple Israel, at 2215 Mahan Drive.
A panel on religion will feature
speakers fiom several religions, fol-
lowed by a question and answer
period.
The aim of World Religion Day
is to promote tolerance and under-
standing among the world's reli-
gions, and has been organized by the
Baha'is of Tallahassee on the third


S


i


Sunday in January each year since
the early 1980s.
This year's event includes speak-
ers from the Jewish, Christian, Bud-
dhist, Muslim, Native American,
Hindu and Baha'i faiths.
In order to make the event truly
interfaith, the Baha'is try to move
the event to different locations
around Tallahassee, and are thrilled
that Temple Israel will host the
event this year.
"This is a marvelous chance for
. people to learn about other faiths,"
said Haven Cook, organizer of the
event, "and also to visit this beauti-
ful synagogue."
This year's topic promises to spur


a lot of questions and participation
from the audience, as well as being
timely. Each speaker will talk about.
what their religion teaches them
about how to treat people of other
faiths.
Quincy Mayor Sherrie Taylor has
signed a proclamation naming Janu-
ary 15, 2006 World Religion Day in
Quincy.

unable to communicate your wishes,
guiding your medical care.
The documentation process con-
sists of two primary concepts: de-
vising a living will and designating
a health care surrogate. Less than
25 percent of Americans over the
age of 18 enact these rights in writ-
ing.


Covenant Hospice and Tallahassee
Memorial Hospital believes that Ad-
vanced Directives are for everyone,
regardless of age or health status,
and that it is important for everyone
to make his wishes known so that
loved ones will not have to endure
the pressure of making health care
decisions.
To register or for more informa-
tion, call Tallahassee Memorial
Hospital, Karen Kirksey at 431-
5874 or Covenant Hospice, Marina
Brown at 575-4998.
