trying to


open 'ER'

by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

As county officials work to gamn
;the license to operate Gadsden
Community Hospital" from Ashford
Healthcare Systems, Inc., the com-
pany holding the lease to Gadsden
Community Hospital, the\ are also
looking for ways to help citizens
who need emergency care \% houtc
going to Leon or Jackson counties.
"We are working with the state
Department of Health and the local
health department to open an emer-
gency facility here until we can get
GCH open. The need seems to be
critical for emergency care." said
Marlon Brown, county manager.
But even if the emergency faciliu is
open in the near future, no one
knows for sure when the hospital
might re-open.
"We are doing the best ix e can, but
right now we are at a stalemate with
Agency for Health Care Adminis-
tration (AHCA), the bankruptcy
court creditors committee and Ash-
ford Healthcare Systems, Inc.
Because of the complexity of the
situation and the number of people
and agencies involved, it is taking a
long time," Brown said.
Tuesday night, following the reg-
ular meeting of the board of county
commissioners, a closed door ses-
sion was held with attorneys Thorn-
ton Williams and Paul Sexton. "The
meeting was held so that commis-
sioners could get an update on
where the county stands in all of
this," Brown said, but he was not at
liberty to discuss what happened
during the meeting.
Late last month, the county had
high hopes that Ashford would turn
the license over so the county could
operate the hospital. The county had
developed guidelines that they
believed Mike Lake, CEO of Ash-
ford, would accept and agree to
transfer the license. That fell

Quincy adjusting cash management plan


Current plan sidetracked;
'Unforseen' expenses, tax
sharing revenue blamed


by BYRON SPIRES
Times Staff Writer

Quincy city commissioners found out Tuesday night
that the cash management plan to move the city out of
its current financial crisis needs adjusting.'
Interim city finance director Christie Joyner explained
to,the commission that the plan devised in October has
been sidetracked due to some unforeseen expenses.
Joyner listed the rise in the cit3 's natural gas cost, a
$226,000 bond related vendor payment and a payment
of $50,000 to attorney Ed Staffman for services ren-
dered in the Glendale Russ action as major factors in the
need to reassess the city's original plan.
In October the commission found itself between the a
rock and a hard place when it was learned that former
city finance director Neva Reed had paid the city's bills
- a little over $1 million at the end of September
before she left office. Although the bills were paid, it
created a money crunch for the city. The city had not
collected enough money to cover the checks.
The commission approved a line of credit for
$750,000 from Capital City Bank to offset the short fall.
In addition to borrowing the money the city worked
out a payback plan with Progress Energy to take the
October electric bill (about $750,000) that was then due


and extend it over the next three months. The plan
included a hiring freeze and stopped all non-essential
purchases by the city.
When asked at the meeting if the bank had been paid
back any of the $750,000, Joyner said, no.
The Progress Energy bill that was set up on a three
month plan had been paid she said.
Joyner recommended that the city extend the $750,000
note until September and to continue cut backs. She told
the commissioners that she has had contact with the
bank and they had. verbally agreed to extend the loan.
"It is my recommendation that we continue conserva-
tive spending for the remainder of the fiscal year,"
Joyner said.
Promised city employee raises will not be stopped
Joyner said. She added that employee raises would be
commencing in the second pay period in February. They
will be retroactive to October.
City manager Willie Earl Banks stated in the meeting
that the buy-back holiday pay for those firefighters and
police officers that had requested the holiday pay would
also be paid on February 14.
Joyner's comments did not fall on deaf ears.
Commissioner Derrick Elias said he, found the plan to
be superficial.
Elias said the gas price increa.te ouild eventually be
absorbed by the city's customers and that the $50,000
payment for Staffman had been a'budeeied uem. He had
concerns that the first plan had not x oi-ked and stated he
was not sure that this plan had been thought out well
enough to work either.

'Expanded' city audit turns up


no evidence of illegal activity


Ron Thompkins from the city's audit firm, Watson and Rice, answers
questions about the 2003-2004 audit.


Forensic audit awaits;

bids being evaluated

by BYRON SPIRES
Times Staff Writer

Ron Thompkins, representing Watson and Rice,
Quincy's audit firm, said they did not find any fraud or
illegal activities in the 2003-2004 audit.
Thompkins was responding to a question by commis-
sioner Andy Gay as to any wrongdoings they may have
found in that year's audit.
Each year municipalities are required by state law to
be audited to assure the state that they are abiding by all
state requirements concerning bookkeeping procedures
and the correct handling of state money. Municipalities
receive a big portion of their revenue from shared state
tax revenues and property taxes. That audit is to be done
by an outside audit firm like Watson and Rice.
Thompkins explained that at the prompting of com-


Original West Gadsden High School f


by Alice DU PONT
Times Editor

Property originally purchased by the Gads-
den County School Board as the site for West
Gadsden High School is up for grabs.
Wayne Shepard, director of facilities for the


school district, said the 80-plus acres is being
sold "as is". The school district paid approxi-
mately $385,000 for the property, known as
the Thomas Smith property.
"There have been a few nibbles. We have to
offer it to the public for bid because the prop-
erty was purchased with taxpayers' money,"


he said.
The bids will be opened on Feb. 8, 2006, at 2
p.m. in the district office, 35 Martin Luther
King,Jr., Blvd. in Quincy. If no bids are satis-
factory, the board can reject all bids.
The school board opted not to construct the

Medicare Part D information coming at I


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

Gadsden County Commissioners were given
an overview of what Medicare beneficiaries in
Gadsden County can expect with the new drug
benefit program.
Tymeisha Baker, representing the Gadsden
County Health Council, asked commissioners
to help her get the word out to the approxi-'


mately 7,400 Medicare beneficiaries in the
county who will be impacted by the new fed-
eral prescription program called Medicare Part
D.
"The Medicare Prescription Drug, Improve-
ment, and Modernization Act of 2003 can
potentially provide drug benefits to more than
5,877 residents who are of the 65-plus popula-
tion and the 1,520 disabled and end-stage
renal disease residents of our county," Baker


said.
She said that to address the challenge that
many of our citizens face understanding the
benefits and the extra financial support avail-
able to Gadsden countians, the health council
is sponsoring an event called "Know Your
options with Medicare Part D" on February 9.
It will be held at the National Guard Armory at
the corner of Pat Thomas Parkway and Joe

n iSiincmer Keith Dowdell hi; firm ihad expanded its
scope of services and looked at an extra number of
transactions.
Dowdell said he had asked the audit firm to look
closely at the finance, customer service and the city
manager's departments.
Any time a commissioner expresses a concern Thomp-
kins' company takes a deeper look.
One item Thompkins said the audit firm checked was
to make sure that city vendors (businesses that receive
money from the city).did not have city employees or
elected officials associated with them, such as a board
member or part owner.
Thompkins said he had been given the name of a
development company in reference to former finance
director Neva Reed and could not find any connections
with the city.
He added that in his audit of the city's books he did
not find anything significant.
Gay asked Thompkins if he had found anything out of
the way with the city's bond accounts.
Thompkins said that he had found numerous transac-

Pierce "Sonboy" Rolax and his
Nash helped educate many in the
Sawdust Community.


Higher education didn't mean col-
lege, it meant high school.
Rolax's wife, Betty Mae, was a
certified teacher and taught in a
one-room school in the community
of St. Mary. To the family, educa-
tion was important. But the prob-
lem of transportation hit the Rolax
home when the oldest of the cou-
ple's two daughters (Mary Lewis
Rolax) completed sixth grade.
Mary could get to Stevens, but
what about her friends and other
relatives?

parents that if they wanted their
children to attend Stevens High
School, they should have them
ready and beside the highway at
5:30 each morning. They would get
back home about 7 in the evening
because they had to wait until he
got off work at the lumber com-
pany," Eady said.
Every morning, eight children
piled into the Nash. "They were
squeezed in, they sat in each other's
laps." This went on for several
years until Rolax and several other
men in Sawdust petitioned the
school board for a bus.

Let your legislators know what you think


By: Byron Spinrs

How our parents raised us


The Legislative delegation,
those people we elect to speak
on our behalf in the upcoming
session will be in one place
all together next Monday, Jan-
uary 30. At 6 p.m. Sen. Al
lawson, Rep. Curtis Richard-
son and Rep. Marti Coley will
all be in County Commission-
ers Meeting Room, 9 East Jef-
ferson Street in Quincy, just
to hear what you want them to
do for you.
They all came and asked
for your vote and your gave it
to them. Now they are coming
to you again, this time to find
out what you want from them.
Actually, the law requires that
they hold these public hear-
ings prior to the beginning of
each session. Law not with-
tanding, I think they really
want to know what con-
stituents think and what they
see as priorities.
Got something to say?


Thanks sheriff


Dear Editor:

Many thanks to our Sheriff Mor-
ris A. Young.
As a neighbor of his, I just want
to express the concerns he has,'not
only for people but animals as well.
On January 21, 2006, my pet named
"Precious" got sick and I called fcr
him and he 'didn't hesitate to come
to my rescue even if it was my dug.
She was just like a child of the fam-
ily. His concern, passion, love and
kindness were no different for an
animal or a person. He was with us
until the very end of her death. We
should have more people caring and
concerned like our Sheriff regard-
less of the situation. Just wanted to
share these few words with the
community and let them know the
kind of man they elected for office.
A good man. God Bless you.


Carl Marshall, Jr.

Question comments
made at meeting

Dear Editor:

Are the negative allegations
against the City of Quincy Police
Department (as reported) in the Jan-
uary 12, 2006 issue of the Gadsden
County Times and the Havana Her-
ald fair and accurate?
It is with immense pleasure I
comment in opposition. I am a sen-
ior citizen in the Shaw Quarter
Community. I have gone to and
have telephoned the QPD countless
times regarding very serious situa-
tions (publicly known and
unknown). The QPD has proven
overwhelming loyalty and fidelity,
and allowed me to know they are
just a phone call away day or night.
The entire QPD and the
City of Quincy community support
services extraordinary hard work-
ing employees responded always
with dignity, professionalism,
courage and concern; which has
made a 'lasting legacy that pictures
the image of un-broken leadershi'i,
communication, dedication and


Monday is the time to get it
off your chest. You can't wait
until the session starts to
make telephone calls about
what you want those who rep-
resent you to do on your
behalf or on behalf of the
county.
Are there issues you want
explained by the people who
made the decisions? Be there
Monday and they will be
more than happy (I guess) to
tell you how and why they
voted the way they did not
and why or why not they sup-
ported certain measures.
One thing is for sure, you
won't get any answers sitting
at home. This is where you
need to be to offer your com-
ments on the upcoming ses-
sion and to let those who rep-
resent you hear what you have
to say and it's not in the mid-
dle of a campaign stomp.
If you're new to the area


commitment to the entire commu-
nity.
It's awfully hard to please and
it's hard to appreciate the good of
one's labor, but at least try to
acknowledge the whole truth about
the negative' comments especially
on those dayswhen you'd rather be
singing the blues about the one
thing you'd like a lot. Your pay
check.
Would you please be willing to
take a risk and be able to reap some
rewards and re-evaluate the QPD,
check the records there in, absorb
the stings and arrows of selfish
"destructive behavior without strik-
ing back in rage, and give credit
where credit is due, to the City of
Quincy Police Department.

Lavern McNealy Butler


Clearing up some
local gossip

Dear Editor:

It is a fact that Rick and Cyndi
Volz have chosen different paths in
which to walk. But have done so


and haven't had the opportu-
nity to meet Lawson, Richard-
son, and Coley, now is your
chance. I assure you, they are
all very likable people and
don;t look a thing like the
cigar-smoking politicians of
yesteryear that you see in old
movies.
All jokes aside, these meet-
ings are serious. They often
determine what those who
represent us think about when
they place their fingers on the
button to vote "yes" or "no"
on issues that affect all of us
everyday. They are our voice
in the Legislature, they are
not mind readers.
It's not fair to lambast them
for not taking your views into
consideration when you
haven't offered your views.
Monday is our opportunity
to be a part of the solution
and not a part of the problem.
Take advantage of it.


with deep sorrow and great respect
for one another. We have loved and
grown together for over a quarter
century, becoming a family with
more good times and special mem-
ories than most couples will ever
know.
Gadsden County is truly a great
place to 'live and raise'a family.
Having many friends, family and a
small business you have all been
there for us and we will always be
grateful for your help and kindness.
'However, time catches up, iron
rusts, fences sag and sometimes
love fades.
One thing about living in a small
town is that when you don't know
what's going on in your life the rest
of the town does. The rumors are
rampant and of the ones that we
have heard, not an ounce of it is
true. We will keep our business
together and we will remain
friends. So we ask that you please
respect our feelings as we would do
the same for you.
Go fishing'

"Boy, my mother wouldn't
have let me get away with
that," I thought as I watched a
child screaming at his mother
in a store recently.
I thought that, but the truth
is I don't know what she
would have done, because I
never screamed at her.
It never really crossed my
mind to raise my voice to
either of my parents.
I'll say now that I wouldn't
have created such a public
spectacle out of respect for my
mother. When I was a kid, I
probably wouldn't have raised
my voice to her out of fear of
the consequences of what
would follow such a outburst.
It's true, I am a product of
spankings.
Before I generate a bunch of
letters about spanking let's get
something straight. First let me
say that by spanking I don't
mean a beating.
Secondly, I'm not saying
spanking is the only way to
raise a child. That decision I
believe should be left up to the
parents.
But, for me showing out in
public, as a child was not an
option. FIm sure that spankings
had a lot to do with that deci-
sioit at the time.
Actually, I didn't get a lot of
spankings as a child. Probably
because after Eddie came
along my parents were to busy
spanking him to pay me much
mind.
I will say that I remember
hearing my mother say on
more than one occasion that if
Eddie had been born first, I
might not be here.
However, I did get a few
spankings.
We had a "switch" tree at
the corner of our front porch.


It really wasn't a switch tree
by name, I really don't know
what type of tree it was, but it
had thin long branches that
made an excellent switch.
I hated that tree. Especially,
when I had to go break a
switch off of it.
It was getting your own
switch that was the worst part.
At our house we didn't have
the privilege of the countdown
some children received. You
know the drill I'm sure.
Instead it was those words,
"go get me a switch", that
would send chills up and down
your spine.
That poor tree took a lot of
abuse from me over the years.
I don't think I ever walked by
it that I didn't say something
about its heritage or even give
it a swift kick in the trunk.
Getting a spanking wasibad
enough, but it usually included
a lecture and a couple of ques-
tions.
"Do you know why you are
getting this spanking?" started
most of them.
There is no correct answer
to that question by the way.
If you say you know why,
then you are chastised for
doing something wrong that
you knew was wrong. If you
said you didn't know what you
had done, then you were chas-
tised for trying to lie out of
something you knew you had
done.
Believe me, I tried every
way I could to talk my parents
out of giving me a spanking.
But, it never worked.
Then of course there was
the post-spanking conse-
quences.
Go to your room, go sit on
the porch or go sit in the yard
were usually the options. Fol-


lowed by, "don't move from
that spot until I tell you".
Now for the worst part, you
had to think about what had
just happened. It depended a
lot on what you had done as tor
how long you sat and conteth-
,plated your bad choices.
Sitting and thinking about
what you had done usually
lasted about thirty minutes and
then you had to endure the
post-post lecture.
Next to the switch tree, I
hated that part the most.
And then.of course you had
the inevitable promise.
"Are you going to do this
again?"
Another question with no
real sure answer.
If you said "no," then get
ready to suffer the conse-
quences if you ever tread that
particular path again. Because,
if you did, you would hear
about the promise that you
would never do "that" again
throughout the entire spanking
procedure. Oh, and kiss a cou-
ple of prime playing hours
away as well sitting on the-
porch watching the other kids
pldy. Nobody in his right
mind would say "yes", thai
wasn't even an option.
You could try to negotiate a
response like I did with com-
ments like, "I'll try not to, I
didn't know we were going "
there", or my favorite, "Eddie
did it."
At the time I thought it was
unfair that I couldn't do all of
the things that I wanted to-do
and have my way all of the'
time..
My parents set boundaries:
and kept me within those s
boundaries in a safe and caring
home.
But, I still hate that tree.

Property appraiser helps new residents with homestead exemption

Clay VanLandingham spent a week at the Midway city hall assisting new residents with their homestead exemption paper work


BY BYRON SPIRES
Times Staff Writer

Filing homestead exemption
can save you $500 or more off
your tax bill, property appraiser
Clay VanLandingham says.
VanLandingham wants every-
one in the county to be aware of
the need to file for homestead
exemption. Over the past few
weeks his office has posted ads
in the paper to remind new prop-
erty owners in the county to file
their exemptions.
Once you file (the first time),
VanLandingham said you will
receive notification of renewal
of your homestead exemption
every year. If you move your res-
idency, however, he said you
would need to re-file on the new
property.
Homestead exemption was set
up by the Florida legislature as
tax relief. for property owners
who lived (homesteaded) on
their property. Originally it was
a $5,000 exemption against the
tax value of the property. Several
years ago it was raised to
$25,000. Over the past few years
there has been some discussion
of raising the amount. No legis-
lation, so far, has been passed to
change the $25,000 exemption.
Last week VanLandingham set
up shop in the Midway City Hall
to give new residents of Gadsden
County's fastest growing city an
opportunity to fill out the needed


forms to take advantage of the
homestead exemption savings.
The forms must be filled out in
person, Vanlandingham said.
"We had 40 residents come in
and fill out the forms," VanLand-
ingham said. In order to qualify
for the 2006 homestead exemp-
tion the resident must own and
be living in the home on January
1, 2006.
VanLandingham targeted Mid-
way as a satellite office for a
week because of the phenomenal
residential growth of the
county's eastern-most city.
"There are approximately 140
new homes in Midway that will
qualify for homestead exemption
this year," VanLandingham said.
He estimated that about half of
the residents that are qualified to
take advantage of homestead
exemption have filed so far.
"They have until March 1, to
apply for homestead exemp-
tion." He added that there was
a process to file late through his
office should someone fail to
meet the deadline.
Last year, Vanlandingham said,
very few of the the homes were
completed prior to the 2005
deadline. Those residents
that owned the property were
charged taxes based on their lot
value. This yeai, however, those
same residents will face the full
tax value of the property and
home.
As an example, Vanlanding-

each city's tax rate is different.
Midway millage rate is highest
at 4.3 with Gretna at 4.2,.Greens-
boro at 3, Quincy at 2.75,
Havana at 2 and Chattahoochee
at 0.8. The county's millage rate
is at the state's maximum of 10,
the school board at 8.1 and
Northwest Florida Water Man-
agement at .05 will be the same
on everyones tax bill.
VanLandingham. said he is see-
ing an upswing in new homes
over last year and anticipates
more homestead exemptions
being filed next year. W i t h
several subdivisions starting
construction in Midway, Havana
and Greensboro this year we..
look for several hundred more
homes that will need to file for
homestead exemption by Janu2
ary 1, 2007." G
Plans are, he said, to set up q
local office for a week again next,'
year in Midway and expand that,
to include Havana and possibly,
Greensboro.
If you would like more infor-_
mation concerning homestead'
exemption you can call Van-'
Landingham. at 850-627-7168.:'
For more information about the
property appraiser's office yotf i
can go online at,
www.qpublic.net/cadsden.
VanLandingharn said that the'
website had a tax estimator that'
can be used to estimate yo ur
taxts as well as other informa-,,
tion about your property.


Taxes on the home will. be
approximately $2,000. Without
the homestead exemption the
figure would increase $561.
According to VanLandingham


ham used a house valued: at
$140,000.
The appraisers office will set
the tax value of the house at 85
percent of that value or


$119,000. The homestead
exemption of $25,000 if filed -
will be taken from that figure
leaving a final taxable value of
$94,000.

Gospel singers to perform at Antioch

Song Garden recording artists, Les Snyder and Sons of The Father gospel
singers from West Frankfort, IL, will be singing at Antioch Baptist Church,
284 McCall Bridge Road in Quincy Feb. 3, at 7 p.m.
Les travels the United States with adult sons Chris and Brent, singing the
gospel and presenting "Scripture Sermons" using memorized portions of the
Bible. Their music is distinctive, using a capella and sound tracks, varying
from the traditional hymn to progressive gospel styles.
In an era when families are splintered and flying off into oblivion, this father
and his two sons, all three ordained ministers, give an example of one fam-
ily which has endured into adulthood, ministering together for their Lord and
Savior. The group name says it all they are truly Sons of The (Heavenly)
Father. They often travel in excess of 45,000 miles per year, singing in more
than 270 services.
Sons of The Father, seen regularly on television and heard on radio
throughout the country, have recorded fourteen times over the past 14 years.
"Shelter", their latest recording, includes another song written by Brent Sny-
der, entitled "It Won't Be Long." All of their radio singles have aired nation-
wide.
Pastor Howard Adams invites the public to attend the service. For more
information, call the church office at 627-3813.

2-1-1 volunteers needed


2-1-1 Big Bend, the telephone coun-
seling, information, and referral
agency for the Tallahassee area, has
just announced that the Spring Orien-
tation and Interviews for new volun-
teers will be held on Tuesday, January
31 from 7 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. in Room
021 of the Bellamy Building on
Florida State University campus.
Members of the community can
attend to learn about becoming a tele-
phone counselor for 2-1-1 Big Bend.
"With all the recent natural disasters
of the past two years, we've seen how
the Tallahassee community opens its
y heart to assist others in need across the
country and around the world," said
Jason Zauder, 2-1-1 Big Bend's Coor-
dinator of Volunteers.
"Whether it's helping a caller get
financial assistance after a hurricane or
offering a sympathetic ear, our volun-
teers provide a critical service to peo-
ple in our own backyard."
Prospective volunteers are given an
hour-long orientation to 2-1-1 Big
Bend and then interviewed individu-
ally. Within three to four days, those
applicants who are best suited to
become telephone counselors will be
contacted.
Applicants selected to become tele-
phone counselors are required to
undergo free classroom training


offered by 2-1-1 Big Bend. The
trainees will then work under the direct
supervision of experienced counselors
until they are ready to counsel inde-
pendently.
No prior experience is required to
become a volunteer; however, all vol-
unteers must be at least 18 years of age
and live in the Tallahassee area.
Empathetic volunteers and those flu-
ent in Spanish and/or Haitian Creole
are especially needed.
"Volunteer at 2-1-1 has been such a
rewarding experience for me," said
Ima Volunteer, a hotline counselor.
'There's nothing that compares to the
thanks you get from helping someone
through a tough time."
2-1-1 Big Bend is a private, nonprofit
agency located in Tallahassee. Our
free, confidential hotline programs
offer services 24-hours a day to Leon,
Gadsden, Wakulla, Franklin, Jefferson,
Taylor, Madison and Liberty Counties.

uals and communities by bringing peo-
ple and services together through pro-
'grams which include telephone coun-
seling, crisis intervention, information,
referral, and training services.

teering, please contact Jason Zauder at

Former Gretna manager

faces robbery charges


by BYRON SPIRES
Times Staff Writer

Kenneth Barber, former interim
Gretna city manager, has been
arrested in Tallahassee for attempted
robbery.
Barber, who has held several other
positions in Gadsden County,
including interim finance director
for the cities of Gretna, Midway and
Quincy, was arrested January 17
after an altercation over an internal
revenue refund check.
A report provided by the Tallahas-
see police department states that
Barber, 55, and a woman drove sep-
arately to a North Monroe St. (Talla-
hassee) business to cash the refund
check that belonged to the woman.
- The women, the report said,
owed Barber money and he fol-
lowed her into the business to make
sure he received his money. Once
inside the business with Barber, the
vWoman was in the process of cash-
iXg the check when she noticed that
the check was less than she had
anticipated.
She confronted Barber about the
amount of the check and an argu-


ment ensued.
When the i
woman put / L
the check in we
her back .
pocket, Bar- ,
ber allegedly :..
tried to force-
fully take the
check from
her. She
fought him
off and he tried again to take the
check, allegedly pushing her against
a wall. Barber eventually gave up
trying to take the check and walked
out of the business.
During the confrontation Barber
continually yelled at the women to
give him the check, the report
stated. Barber was later contacted
by the TPD and agreed to meet at a
local grocery store where he admit-
ted that he tried to take the check
and that he knew it belonged to the
woman.
Barber was booked into the Leon
County jail on a $1500 bond. He is
currently being held on another
unrelated charge as well.


Tip leads to kilo of cocain


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

A telephone tip led authorities from the Gads-
den County Sheriff's Department's Drug Unit,
the Florida Department of Law Enforcement and
the Florida Highway Patrol to a kilo of powder
cocaine and the arrest of two cousins, Abel
Cortez and Bulmaro Garcia Cortez, of Clearwater.


Sgt. Corder said members of the drug unit
received information that the pair was on its way
to Gadsden County to deliver the drugs to an
unknown buyer. The officers made a traffic stop
at the Interstate 10 exit near Greensboro. During
a search of the Ford truck members of the drug
unit found the cocaine concealed in a plastic
bucket that contained sheet rock paste. The
cocaine was wrapped in duct tape.


ie, 2 arrests

The recovered cocaine has a street value of
between $25,000 and $30,000.
Both men were charged with trafficking cocaine
and taken to the Gadsden County jail where bond
was set at $100,000 each. The two have since
bonded out.
Anyone with information regarding suspicious
drug activity is asked to call Sgt. Corder at 875-
8847 or 395-4238.

Man charged with

quadruple murders


attempts suicide


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

Willie Sentell Smith, the man
accused of the most heinous mur-
ders in Gadsden- County, tried
unsuccessfully, to commit suicide
iast Thursday in the county jail.
i Sheriff Morris Young said a cor-
ections officer found Williams
hanging from bed sheets tied to the
air conditioning vent in the middle
'of his cell. Officer Rosalind Harrell
,and Sgt. Keyshonda Thompson
went in the cell and cut him down.
"They did a tremendous job and
they were on top of things," said
Major Shawn Wood, administrator
iat the county jail.
Earlier he told officers to tell his
another that he loved her and he was
!going to kill himself.
Williams spend a few hours at the
hospital before he was returned to


the jail. He had been on suicide
watch from a previous suicide
attempt that proved to be superfi-
cial. He was taken off the suicide
watch after several weeks.
Williams admitted to then Deputy
Morris Young that he killed his for-
mer girlfriend Kimberly Walker, her
mother Deondra Scott, her sister
Laterica Jackson, and a nine-year-
old cousin Terrel Brown in April of
2004.
Just last year he had been found
incompetent to stand trial, but that
had been lifted and some thought
the murder trial would begin in Feb-
ruary or March of this year.

Quincy driver flees police


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
It just doesn't pay to give an offi-
cer the wrong name at a traffic stop
and jump out of the car and run.
According to a press release from
the Department of Transportation,
that's exactly what Jerome Scott,
29, of Quincy did when a DOT offi-
cer stopped him for a child restraint
violation.
According to the report, Officer
Bryant Gay stopped Scott on Inter-
state 10 around 2:50 p.m. Scott had
no license in his possession and
gave the officer a false name.
"While the officer was in the
process of determining Scott's dri-


very's license status, Scott exited his
vehicle and fled on foot, leaving the
child and an adult female pajsener
in the vehicle."
With assistance' from the Tallahas-
see Police Department, the Leon
County Sheriff's Office and the
Florida Highway Patrol, Scott was
apprehended by the FHP K9
Trooper Richard Elliott.
Scott was charged with driving
while license suspended, resisting
an officer without violence and giv-
ing a false name to an officer. Scott
also had warrants from Gadsden
County for failure to pay child sup-
port and violation of probation. He
was booked into the Leon County
jail..

Earn College Cash. Com Seminar

Helps Parents and Students

Secure Collegiate Future

Do you need money for college? No Problem!
Parents and students are often concerned about the high cost of higher edu-
cation. Many are unaware of the alternative and additional options to financial
aid.
The "Earn College Cash.Com," seminar coming to Tallahassee in February,
is designed to shed light to those parents and students in need of financial guid-
ance for higher education.
Earncollegecash.com seminar will be held on
Saturday, February 4th, at the Super 8 Hotel
on North Monroe Street.
This is a two session seminar held in the morning from 9 A.M to 12 P.M. and
again in the evening from 1:30 P.M to 4:30 P.M.
"I cringe when I hear parents and students say they do not have money for
college. Students and parents should first know how much money they need?
The second thing they must understand is how to use multiple ways to finance
their college education. Finally, remember that no one is going to just give them
money, they must earn it.
Derrick Farmer, College Authority
The "Money for College" seminar will show parents and students four phases
to earning money for college. Phase one tackles unconventional ways for
financing college like getting organizations to give them money as well as earn-
ing thousands on their own. Phase two will show parents how to get the govern-
ment to give them more money from financial aid while getting scholarships,
even when they do not fully qualify. Phase three deals with earning money while
students are in college, such as getting paid to live on campus and getting the
government to give them $200 a month. Phase four talks about earning big
money as a college student and using this money to finance their future.

Seats are limited. To reserve a seat or get additional registration infor-
mation visit www.earncollegecash.com.

,b 7/Amadeus Mozart was born January 27, 1756 in Salzburg, Austria He is famous for his classic works of musical art including
compositions and operas. The first instrument Mozart learned to play was the harpsichord, at age 3. Mozart also learned to play the piano
and violin.
,1 ,/' was the son of Leopold and Anna Marie Pertl Mozart. Mozart's father realized his son's talent very early in life when Mozart
demonstrated his abilities on the harpsichord. By the time Mozart was five years old he had begun composing classical music. He
played his first full length recital at age 6. Mozart's father decided to use his son's abilities to earn money and they began traveling to
various places such as Munich, London, Paris, Vienna, and Mannheim. He is famous for writing such opera's as "The Marriage of Figaro" .
and "The Requiem", which was being composed at the time of his death and was never completed by the artist.
k.r,'-.",'was greatly influenced by many famous people of the time. Another classical composer, Johann Christian Bach, was a good
friend to Mozart and a great influence to some of his works. He was also influenced by the glass harmonica that was created by Ben
Franklin. So much so, that he wrote music specifically for the instrument to be played.
/;, famed artist was not only known for his famous music, but his extravagant lifestyle. In August of 1782 he married Constance Weber.
They were known for their profuse money spending and debts. Mozart's father did not approve of his son's marriage or lifestyle, though this
did little to hinder Mozart's decisions in adulthood. Mozart died on December 5, 1791 from fever. Many legends say that he was buried in a
pauper's grave, yet he was not. By law all citizens were buried in a regular communal grave. He
was not poverty stricken at his death, but he had fallen out of popularity with his fans. Today 0 r /
Mozart is still one of the greatest composers of all time. i U fV

responsibilities of the church.
Reverend Michael Perry, pastor of Palace AME
Church has set the tone for this rekindling celebration
by hosting a four-part series on church leadership. Part
and II of this dynamic and energetic training dealt with
"Lord, I want to be a Christian".
Pastor Perry expressed "that church leadership is nei-
ther a God given right nor a family tradition, but instead
is a privilege offered by the church based on the outward
disposition of an inner relationship with Christ. The
church leader must "always" apply a Godly philosophy
and principles to secular practices.
Part III dealt with "Lord, I want to be a Church Mem-
ber". This third session of training encouraged the
church member to seek an unambiguous relationship
with God by establishing a faithful and committed rela-
tionship with the local church. Pastor Perry explained in

Southeast Shootout

pits Jaguars against

powerhouse

Right before the end of the high
school basketball regular season, a
"state championship" type atmos-
phere is what the Knight of Pythias
Charles Sumner Lodge #24 hopes to
create at East Gadsden High School
gymnasium on Feb. 3.
Originally scheduled for Jan. 16,
the Southeast Shootout was resched-
uled to bring the premier after-New
Year basketball classic in the south
to Gadsden County.
The event features Hollywood
Chaminade-Madonna (FL) vs. East
Gadsden High School at 7:30 pm.
The Southeast Shootout has blos-
somed into a must-see event for
hoop fans all over the South.
Known for its great basketball and
enthusiastic fans, organizers felt that
East Gadsden High School would be
a perfect fit.
Cory Rollins, shootout director,
thinks this year will be another huge
success. "Normally we invite four
to six teams to the event. This year
we felt we had the perfect match-up
with Chaminade playing East Gads-
den. We wanted these two teams to
have center stage."
Coach Dimitric Salters is poised to
lead the East Gadsden Jaguars to
being a state power in basketball.
He has instilled a "No Fear" attitude
in his players.
"We will play anybody. This game
will help prepare us for the District
tournament," said Salters.
The Jaguars have proven them-
selves to be the team to beat in the
Big Bend. Their ferocious up tempo
style makes them the most entertain-
ing team in the Big Bend as well.
The Jaguars boast a squad of high-
flying athletes. Leading the way is
5'11 junior guard Darius Jackson
who is a two-sport star. Jackson is a
Division 1 recruit on the football
field. He has carried the scoring
load in some of the Jaguars tougher
games.
A trio of sophomores in 6'1 Ricky
Ray, 6'5 Reshard McGill and 6'7
Sam McLaurin gives Coach Salters
plenty to smile about for the next
couple of years. Newcomer Eddie
Murray, helps anchor.-he b.:iWclc--un
and 6'6 Dontay McLaurin adds


inside muscle.
Coach Baronton Terry got a huge
Christmas present early when
Florida Mr. Basketball candidate
Edwin Rios transferred to Holly-
wood Chaminade-Madonna after
leading Miami High to the Class 6A
State Championship.
He was named the Class 6A state
tournament MVP. Rios will be the
highest profile player the East Gads-
den basketball program has faced to
date. He has been featured in sev-
eral national magazines and was
recently selected to play for the
USA Junior National Team in April.
Joining Rios are three talented
sophomores in 6'0 Zack Bailey, 6'7


Xiangdre Reliford and 6'9 Eloy Var-
gas. Adding experience to the Lions
lineup will be 6'5 junior Max
Groebe and 6'3 junior Kamar Bai-
ley. Groebe played for the German
Junior National Team this past sum-
mer.
The Knights of Pythias is an inter-
national non-sectarian benevolent
fraternal organization, which pro-
motes the ideals of friendship,
benevolence, and charity.
Every year a portion of the pro-
ceeds from the event benefit partici-
pants in the form of an educational
scholarship.
Admission is $5. Doors will open
at 6:45pm.


Got his buck
Gus Dasher shot this 8 point, 165 pound deer last Sunday morning in
the Sawdust Community. He also collected a 6 pointer that day.

tions between accounts, but nothing
illegal.
Both commissioners Derrick Elias
and Gay asked Thompkins if the
audit firm was looking for any fraud
or illegal activity.
Thompkins said that since Enron,
audit firms had looked closer as
audits progressed. He said that his
firm was not looking for illegal
activity.
When asked if he had found any-
thing when he checked out the alle-
gations concerning the former
finance director, Thompkins said
that their research did not reveal
anything.
Mayor Sherrie Taylor asked about
the legal issues surrounding the
moving of money in and out of the
city's bond issues.
The city borrows money through
the issuance of a bond. Bonds can be
used for such issues as road paving,
infrastructure or other capital
improvements. Those bonds have
certain requirements attached to
them such as an amount of money
that must be held in reserve during
the life of the bond.
City attorney Jack McLean said
that bond dollars are restricted by a
bond covenant and must be used
under specified terms.
Thompkins said it is not illegal to
move money in and out of a bond
issue, providing that when it is
moved out it is replaced.
,In addition, McLean said,i a.paper.;
trail must be present to prove that
the bond money was spent correctly.
One of the problems that has
arisen centers around wire transac-
tions of bond money.
Thompkins said that under normal
procedures two people would be
required to issue a check. With the
wire transactions Thompkins said
only one person was making the
decision creating a weak paper trail.
He added that it does provide a trail
through the involved banks.
', Thompkins said that transferring
the money created a problem, not
between accounts, but what hap-
pened to the money after it passed
through the second account.
SIn an earlier meeting McLean
stated that the city had insurance to
cbver any misappropriation of
money, and that the- city could fill a
claim if it was deemed necessary.
Gay asked McLean if the city had
filed any claims. McLean said that
none had been filed and that he was
waiting on the city's forensic audit
to be completed.
Dowdell asked Thompkins if there
was any bond money not accounted
for. "No sir," Thompkins said.
Dowdell was also concerned about
the insurance claim. He asked why
the city would file a claim if there
was nothing wrong.
McLean responded that he still
wanted to see the results of the
forensic audit.
"What is the deal?" Dowdell said.
McLean said that suspicions were
that the former finance director did
not carry out her duties, but there
was no evidence to build a case until
the forensic audit.
When Gay asked if there had-been
any indications that money had been
moved between bonds, Thompkins
responded that there was none. But,
McLean said there had been move-
ment between the bonds and the
city's general account.
Thompkins was before the com-
mission to answer questions about
the 2003-2004 audit and no decision
was required by the commissioners.
Watson and Rice are now in the
process of completing the 2004-
2005 audit due later this year
.In a related issue the commission-
ers heard from the city's procure-
nient director Antonio Jefferson
concerning the request for bids on
tbc city's forensic audit. Jefferson
said four bids had been received on


Health Council, he will meet with
the general public at 10 a.m. in the
county commission meeting room,
9 East Jefferson Street, Quincy.
"This is an excellent opportunity
for citizens to meet him and ask
questions. We want to stress that
everyone is welcome to attend the
meeting," said Max Martinez, exec-
utive director of the health council.
Francois was appointed Secretary
of the Department of Health in Sep-
tember by Gov. Jeb Bush. At the
time of the appointment Bush said
Francois "has a depth of knowledge
about public health policy and will


time and would be reviewed by a
citizens committee. The commit-
tee's recommendations would be
before the commission the first
meeting in February.
The committee consists of former
city commissioner Larry Edwards,
Catherine Robinson and Denise
Pouhcey-Hannah.
In other business:
The commission tabled for the
second time an ordinance amending
the definition of nuisance which
named dead or fallen trees and
reduced the height of overgrowth to
12 inches.
The commission approved an
ordinance providing for creditable
time for members of the police offi-
cers and firefighters supplementary
retirement fund.
The commission heard a report
from Gadsden County Chamber of
Commerce executive director David
Gardner concerning the Quincy
Business Park on Joe Adam's Road.
Gardner said that he has two poten-
tial clients for the park, one from
Gadsden County and one from Tal-
lahassee.
Gardner added that signs should be
up on the property by March 1, and
a web site should be completed by
that time as well. He said that he is
specifically targeting business that
will bring in above-average wages
for the community.
The commissioners gave staff
approval to conduct an analysis for
annexation of 80 acres of land on
Strong Road. The property has
water, electric and sewer available.


Finances

Continued from Page 1

He asked Joyner about the
$226,000 bond related payment.
Joyner explained that the bond
money had been taken care of, but
having to replace the money had not
been considered in the original cash
management plan. She did
not know exactly what the bond
issue pertained to, but thought it was
the Shelfer Street project 'now
underway.
In response to the concerns over


the plan not meeting expectations,
financial consultant for the city Bill
Bogan said that there had been prob-
lems in receiving tax sharing funds
as well. "Some of. those funds
expected to be available are not
available," Bogan said.
Commissioner Keith Dowdell
asked if it would not be easier to
make budget amendments.
Joyner explained that the problem
was not a budget issue, but a cash
flow problem.
She said the city establishes a
budget based on what money it
expects to come in over a twelve-
month period of time. As the money
comes in the city's bills can be paid.
She said that having a $36 million
budget does not mean you have that
much money on October 1; the
money must come in over the year
from the city's revenue sources.
I "Cash flow is about timing,"
Joyner said.
"It bothers me," Elias said, adding
that he did not like the idea of being
in the same posture now that the city
was when it borrowed the $750,000.
When asked about the payback
being extended, Joyner said she was
comfortable with the plan.
Mayor Sherrie Taylor asked
Joyner if she needed a "float", a
term used by former finance director
Reed referring to a cushion of
money in the city's coffers.
Joyner said that it would make
things easier. Taylor asked her to
bring a figure that she thought
would be adequateto the next meet-
ing.
Elias asked if Joyner was aware of
what reserves were available .
She said she did not know, buti
would bring the amount to the next
meeting.
No decision was made by the com-
mission, however, city attorney Jack
McLean said that before any com-
mitments were made it would have
to come before the commission.

there is a cemetery on the property.
The firm reported that there were
indications that there were graves on
the property because indentations
are consistent with what could be
graves.
The board opted to look for
another site and last year purchased
the Macon property across the street
from what is the old Greensboro
High School. Ironically, a citizens
site selection committee suggested
the Macon property. first, but the
-board rejected, the recommendation.
and decided to buy the Smith prop-
erty which was not on the list of four,

through, Brown said, because
"when we put an offer on the table
they put up a counter offer."
The county needs to acquire the
license so that it can take steps
towards opening again. The hospital
closed in November after AHCA
cited six pages of infractions and
determined that the facility, as it was
operating, was a threat to public
health and safety.
The City of Quincy discontinued
power to the hospital in December
for the second time since the hospi-
tal closed. Brown said the utilities
are back on now. He speculated that
one of Ashford's creditors, possibly
GE Financial, might have petitioned
the bankruptcy court to require that
Ashford pay the utility bill directly
to the courts to keep the utilities on
so that'they could conduct business.
Ashford has continually stated the
need to access Gadsden Community

Heavy equipment like that in use on Ring Power's construction site at Midway will soon be displayed on the
showroom floor. Approximately 70 jobs will be created in Gadsden County when the facility opens.


by BYRON SPIRES
Times Staff Writer
After a three year hiatus, the new
Ring Power branch office in Mid-
way is back under construction.
Construction stopped shortly after
the land was cleared on the south
side of US 90, between the Midway
city hall and the Interstate 10 inter-
change.
The concrete slabs for the build-
ings are now in place and the walls


and roofs will soon follow. The new
100,000 square foot facility will
house all of ilh RJni Power prod-
ucts in one convenient location,
according to branch manager Ted
Gerrell.
Currently the Caterpillar dealership
is located in Tallahassee on Capital
Circle North West and housed in
several buildings.
"We are happy to be moving to
Midway," he said in a phone inter-


view this week.
The move will put the company
within easy access of 1-10. In addi-
tion their new location gives the
heavy equipment dealer visibility
from Interstate 10. The property
extends from US 90 on the front and
borders 1-10 on the back side.
Ring Power was founded by L.C.
Ringhaver in 1961 and prQvides a
full line of products and parts to the
heavy equipment industry.
The company employees more
than 1750 employees in its 19 north
and central Florida locations. The
Midway branch, Gerrell said, will
employee around 70 people.
The exact date for opening was
not given, but is expected some time
in the early fall. If you would like

by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor


On January 18 of this year, David
Theriaque, attorney for the develop-
ers of Deer Ridge Estates near
Havana, wrote a letter to the board
of county commissioners asking
them to lift the "freeze" that was
placed on further inspections of the
single-family residence at 280 Deer
Ridge Circle.
The letter also stated that the
developers had been "actively per-
forming repairs and upgrades in the
Deer Ridge subdivision for several
months." He also :,i-ed the cciunty
to terminate the pending quasi-judi-
cial proceedings against Home
Placement, Lifestyles De' elopnent.

Theriaque enclosed a letter from
Michael Hogan, engineering spe-
cialist with the Florida Department
of Environmental Protection (DEP)
confirming that the storm water
facility at Deer Ridge is in compli-
ance (with state regulations).
"The developer has performed
many other improvements to the
roads, storm water system, and indi-
vidual lots, beyond those required
by the Consent Order that the de e-I -
oper entered into with DEP in Sc p-
tember 2005."

that "DEP's approval is a differcrni
process." Even if DEP has no pr. b-
lems, the county has another set -f'
rules that the developer needs to i.-4

Commissioners asked Bill
McCord, the county's director :'t

"We note that no effort has been

ers) to coordinate inspections with
the county staff in order to expedite
their report to the county commis-
sioners. if your clients are prepared
to have the county staff inspect the
site, please contact Bill McCord,"
Williams wrote to Theriaque.

Several homeowners from Deer
Ridge Estates attended the meeting,
but only one spoke on behalf of the
homeowners. "I spoke to Mike
Hogan (from DEP) this morning and
I told him that I wasn't happy. He
said that if I wasn't happy, then he
wasn't happy and that he would go


back out there," said Arthur Cyr. He
also is suspicious of the actions
taken by, the developer.
"We're much further along had
we litigated this (with developers," '
Williams said.
Even if the county doesn't agree
with everything the developers have


done, a letter from the homeowner
at 280 Deer Ridge Circle pleaded
with commissioners to .lift the
restriction on inspecting his home so
that he can begin living in the home
he is paying for but cannot occupy.
The request was not discussed
during the meeting.
