"We are fortunate we had a warm

;Gas Authoriy of Georgia said to the
:Haivana city council Tuesday mom-
ing. Groom'" company represents 80

Havana and

EriGroom said, when tem-

December. This year that tallyrose to

G room said, vas the drop inwtempera-

':In 2004 e said the cost was around
$14 per 1000 cubic feet of gast
(MMBaTU), this season it has risen to
nearly $20 per MMBTU. The price
the city is paying now for natural gas,
Groom said, overshadowed what the
city sold the gas for last year.
Groom brought a chart of the
increases and changes.
S The cost to the town varies
depending on the wholesale cost of
the gas. As an example Groom's chart
showed a comparison of three years.
This winter gas prices have been as
hiah as nearly\ $14 aunit compared to
a little ,-er $ -for the two winters of
m2003 and 200)-.
Groom's chart on wholesale prices
forecasted a price ofiblose to $9 a unit
Rfor the next few months. The reason
that the price has dropped some in the
lasit fe% weeks he said had been
because of demand. As demand rises
again (all over the United States)
because of coldAr weather, the price
Will start to clinib again, Groom said.
Again Groom explained that once
the town receives its gas it must then
in turn sell it to residents. Those rates
change as the cost of the gas increases.
Included in that cost are four factors:
the city's charge or profit, surcharges,
the cost of/the gas and the cost of get-
tihg fthe gas to the town of Havana or
pipeline charges. Those factors, he
said, caused the gas prices to hover
around $20 a unit for November and
December of 2005.
: Groom's chart shows that residents
'..ould be paying about $16 per unit in
February and $15 a unit in March.

Jobs, health, infrastructure top wish list


Gadsden and its 5

municipalities give

wish list to reps

by ALICE Du PONT
Times Editor

For months the county commission's staff
and city managers from the five municipalities
in the county have been meeting to hammer
out a plan to present to state representatives
during the annual delegation meeting. While
everyone agreed that it was exactly what they
wanted, the plan presented was the best one
for the county.


The list was long. Months of, meetings and
compromise had come down to a prioritized
list that all could agree on. "In preparation for
the 2006 Legislative Session, the Gadsden
County Board of County Commissioners has
deliberated on the issues impacting the county
and has developed a document to assist you in
your efforts to promote the issues of primary
importance to Gadsden County," Commission
Ed Dixon told the delegation at the beginning
of a three-hour meeting.
The commissioner asked for:
A County Rural Economic Development
Initiative project.
Support of a funding request for a county-
wide collaborative water/sewer infrastructure
engineering and design study.
Funding for necessary renovations to the


Gadsden .County Courthouse.
No housing of state parole violators in
local jail faciltiies.
Support for the state constructing and
operating a regional jail facility in the north
Florida area to relieve crowded conditions in
the local jail.
Funding for the repair and renovation of
Gadsden Community Hospital.
Funding for the Gadsden Comprehensive
Rural Health and Education Center.
Increased funding to address the health
care needs for Florida's Medicaid eligible
population.
Funding for a regional multi-purpose
emergency shelter at Florida State Hospital in
Chattahoochee.
Additional revenue for sharing funding in


fiscally constrained counties.
Continued funding for the small county
solid waste/recycling grant program. /f
Dixon's list was comprehensive, bui the del-
egation said they were pleased witfhfie;effort
that the county had made. Last ye'ar. the dele-
gation criticized the board for' 0,ot developing
a list of priorities. "We've, come eight years
fromttwhere we were a ye4r ago. We're going
to vo'rk hard to get as itrany of these requests
funded'as possible,",4ronmised Richardson.
"I want to comrpind you for this report. I've
never seen such. comprehensive report as this
in 24 years," said Lawson. The 24-page report
offered a summary as well as detailed back-
Si,( nd information to support each request for
fturding or support.

Woman dies in


Quincy wreck


A Quincy woman, Priscilla McMillan, died from injuries
suffered in a traffic accident Tuesday afternoon.
The accident occurred at the corner of Shelfer Street and
Martin Luther King, Jr. Blvd. around 3:30 p.m.
Three others from different vehicles involved in the four-
car pile up received injuries and were transported to Talla-
hassee Memorial Hospital. None of the injuries were
believed to be life threatening.
Wednesday morning investigators from the Quincy
Police Department and the Florida Highway Patrol were
still trying to sort out what happened.
"This is just a tragedy. We're not sure how it all hap-
pened. The investigation is continuing," said Lt. Angela
Galloway of the Quincy Police Department.

The 'can-do' woman in Hispanic community


Child of immigrants
strives to help
children achieve

by Alice DU PONT'
Times Editor

There are many ways of being a role
model. Maria Esquivel Pouncey leads
by example. "All they have to do is
tell me that I can't do something, and
I'll do it." Like the time someone said
she couldn't take a certain job-
because she didn't have a master's
degree. Well, she has one, she also
earned a real estate license because of
the way an agent spoke to her.
Ask anyone in Gadsden County's
Hispanic Community and beyond
who to call to get things done and
more than likely Maria's name will be
the one you hear. The "can-do" she
exhibits is in the community.
Gadsden County's Hispanic students
hold a special place in her heart. In
fact, when she came here as a volun-
teer 18 years ago, it was for the chil-
dren. "I was living in Tallahassee and
I was homesick. I was depressed and
my husband (Richmond Pouncey)
called the Catholic Church over here
and asked if they could use a volun-
teer," she said, and the rest is history.
The first thing she did was form a
multi-age Girl Scout Troop at the
church. That turned into three troops
and she is still involved with scouting.
She sits on the Board of Directors for


the regional Girl Scout Council. She
also started church Sunday School
classes on Saturday mornings in
Greensboro.
Three years after she took the volun-
teer job at the church, Maria got a call
from the Gadsden County School
District offering her a job working
with migrant children.
"The pay wasn't much over mini-
mum wage. I took a $15,000 pay cut
and I have never been happier and I
have never regretted my decision for
one minute. I always say it was my
calling," she said. After working with
the Attorney General's Office getting
people to pay their debts and after a
stint as the first female at the Federal
Correctional Institution in Tallahas-
see, Maria had found what she really
wanted to do with her life.
The child of migrant parents, Maria
found that she wanted to help the
children achieve. "No matter what I
do, I do for the children because of
my circumstances.
Maria said she was born a "sickly
baby" in Edinburg, TX, just across
the border. Her mother worked in the
tomato field right up until the time of
her birth, said Maria. Her parents,
Victor and Catarina Lopez already
had Maria's sister who suffered med-
ical problems. They couldn't take two
sick children with them as they
worked crops, so Maria was left with
an aunt and uncle until her own par-
ents returned the next year.
"They really nursed me back to
health. All of their children were


grown and I got all of the attention as
the baby of the family. They became
my parents. When my real mother
and father came back to get me.
they were so attached ito me.
my parents let me sa\.'" she
said.
In many ways, I" L ii
thinks that was the best
thing that happened t' chei
"My uncle was no liInger a
migrant and had sciikd in
Edinburg. Although hei ,onh
had a fifth grade educa-
tion and my aunt had
a third grade educa-
tion, he was a strong,
believer in educa-
tion. It was becauc
of my uncle's sta-
bility that I got to
go to school,"
Maria said.
Migrant student,
that Maria comes

Maria's uncle. It
was because of
him that she fili-

is true for the staff, we don't ask any-


one to do anything we haven't done.
We not only talk the talk, but we walk
the walk. I believe in action," she
said.
Maria took her job even further.
How could she feel empathy for the
migrant children she worked with if
she had not walked in their shoes? So,
several years ago, she and her family
joined another family from Florida to
Texas. "We rode on the back of a
pickup truck all the way. I have lived
with migrant families and I have
brought them into my home," she
said.
But no matter how down-trodden a
migrant worker might be, Maria
insists on one thing. "They must be
treated with respect," she said. In fact,
she was so adamant about that she
almost sent employees from the Mex-
ican Consulate packing when they
came to Quincy and turned their
noses up at some farm workers who
had just come from the fields. "I don't
care who they are, they are going to
treat my people with respect and dig-
nity," she said.
While Maria's main job is education,
she knows that it's much more.
"There are a lot of things I and my
staff have to deal with that may not
be classified as education. There are
issues like domestic violence, health
issues, job-related injuries and other
things that affect the children and
keep their minds off learning. We
have to address, those issues," she

2 Gadsden County Times February 2, 2006

Quincy's Dean Mitchell honored for contributions to art world at Gala


'I am the fruit
of your labor,
and I thank you.'
by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
"I am so deeply moved and so
deeply touched. I shall always
remember Quincy until the last
breath in my body is gone," said
Dean Lamont Mitchell.
Mitchell was honored Saturday
night during a gala at the Sawano
Club for his contributions to the
world of fine art and for helping
to put the City of Quincy and
Gadsden County on the map in
the world of art. "I am the fruit of
your labor and I thank you,"
Mitchell told an audience of
about 150 people, who plunked
down $100 each to attend the
event.
"This is fabulous,"' said
Mitchell, looking around the
room at many of the people he
grew up with and others he met
since becoming an artist with
international acclaim. Mitchell


son welcomed Mitchell back
home and congratulated him on
his accomplishments before pre-
senting him a standing plaque on
behalf of the Board of Directors
of the art center.
Quincy's mayor, Sherrie Taylor,
who was a classmate of Mitchell
said she was very proud to pres-
ent him the key to the city. "I
have to tell you something that a
lot of people in this room do not
know, I spent 12 years with
Dean," she said, adding, "in
school that is."
Reginald James, school superin-


tendent, thanked Mitchell for
becoming a role model for the
children of the school district.
"Just last week, my wife, who is
a reading coach at Gretna Ele-
mentary, started the Dean
Mitchell Art Club at the school
and we hope to have them in
every school in the county," he
said.
Mitchell's works are represented
by distinguished galleries nation-
wide. They has been recognized
by many publications including
Art News and the New York
Times. His work is included in


private, corporate, and museum
collections. Mitchell is the sub-
ject of two books and numerous
periodicals.
Accompanying him to the event
were his mother, Hazel Mitchell,
and his fiance Connie Chavarria.
The couple plans to marry this
summer.
Proceeds will benefit the
Gadsden Arts Center and its pro-
grams. Proceeds from the raffle
of the "French Quarter Coach-
man" water color supported the
Dean Mitchell Documentary Film
Project.

said that everywhere he goes he
makes it clear that his start was
deeply rooted in the soil of Gads-

County commission chairman-
Ed Dixon, in presenting a Procla-
mation to Mitchell, recalled how


the two played together in the
"Pepper Hill" neighborhood
where they grew up. "We have
native sons all over the United
States. They are doing us proud,"
he said.

Lt. Governor visits local school


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
They said that one hour per week can
change the life of a child. That was the
message that Florida's Lt. Gov. Toni
Jennings brought to Gadsden County
last week in an attempt to encourage
citizens to become mentors. She was
joined by Quincy Mayor Sherrie Tay-
lor, School Superintendent Reginald
James, Sheriff Morris Young, County
Commission Chairman Ed Dixon, and
Chairman of the Florida Mentoring
Partnership, Steve Uhlfelder.
Others from throughout the county
were also on hand at Stewart Street
Elementary School as part of a pilot
mentoring program called "Focus on
Achievement". Gadsden is one of
eight counties in the state with at least
one elementary school that earned an F
based on taie Florida Comprehensive
Assessment Test (FCAT) scores. One
way, many feel, to improve test scores
is through mentoring.
"We're committed to providing the
best education for all 'of our students. I
would love to have one mentor per
child, but that is not, plausible. I would
like to see 4t least 50 to 120 mentors

mentors in the United States. There is
no excuse for every kid not to have, a
mentor," he said. The mentoring initia-
tive is one of a series of ideas that are
intended to bring attention to improv-
ing the county's schools. With a
county population of 46,000 plus,
Uhlfelder said getting 6,500 mentors
shouldn't be a problem.
After working in the program for
more than six years, Uhlfelder said he,
knows how hard it is to recruit men-1
tors. "You can share. Two or three of
you can get together.'You're not going
to turn the world around in the 10th
and 11th grades', you have to do it here'
(at the elementary school level). He
then asked how many students in the


room had mentors. Two raised their
hands.
I see'this in every F,D, and some C
schools across the state...we need to
get involved," he said, before introduc-
ing Jennings.
Jennings said that while Stewart
Street is not where everyone would
like it to be at this time, she assured the
audience that mentoring could make
the school an A school in a few years.
"I remember when my staff came to
ask me about becoming a mentor. I
said I was too busy. They told me that
the Governor is 'a mentor and if he
found time to become a mentor, so
could I," she said. Jennings has been
mentoring a student at Sabal Palm Ele-

years.
"We can all find an hour in our week
to mentor a student," she said.
Taylor said she was ready to meet the
challenge for recruiting mentors for
the school. 'This is my school, this is
the school that I attended as a child.
We're not going to stop until every
child who wants a mentor has one."
she said, adding, "this is my home
school and we are going to pull this
out."
School Superintendent Reginald
James has allowed all staff at the dis-
trict office to take one hour per week to
mentor. "At least 20 of the mentors
from the district office are at Stewart
Street," James said. He said that
although there are many dedicated
teachers in the district they need men-
tors to help them.
The "Focus on Achievement. Pro-
gram" is the first project of the Advo-
cacy Council of the Florida Mentoring
Partnership. The council was formed
last year to engage more members of
the community to become mentors,
keeping mentoring at the forefront in
'Florida.
To become a mentor at Stewart,
Street Elementary, call volunteer coor-
dinator and parent liaison Dorothy
Thomas at 627-3145 ext. 263.

Gadsden County deputy Mon-
day morning. Sweet was wanted
for attempted murder in connec-
tion with a stabbing assault last
weekend in Leon County. He
was also wanted in Gadsden'
County aggravated battery and
aggravated assault, both with a
deadly, and solicitation for pros-
titution.
"He called me Friday night
around 10 o'clock and said he
had gotten into trouble and
wanted to turn himself in, but
that-he wanted-'to-turn- himself in
only to me," said Deputy Terry
Lindsey.
Lindsey was in Orlando on per-
sonal business when he got the
call. "I told him I would be out
of town until Sunday and told
him that I would pick him up


Monday morning. He gave me a
number where he could be
reached," Lindsey said.
When Lindsey called early
Monday morning Sweet directed
him to his location. "When I
drove up he was in the yard with
his mother and girlfriend wait-
ing for me," Lindsey said.
In Leon County, Sweet
allegedly punched and stabbed a
man on Jan. 22 at the Riverfront
Entertainment Center on West
Tennessee Street. He was later
identified from a photo lineup
as, according to witnesses, the
man who approached an uniden-
tified victim and began punch-
ing him in the parking lot.
According to a Leon County
Sheriff's Office report, the man
said he did not know he was
stabbed until he as able to get
away.
The victim and Sweet has a
previous argument at a Quincy
night club several weeks ago.

Remembering Coretta Scott King


finding Roads

By: Byron Spires


You will know them by their works


Coretta Scott King, the wife
of the late Civil Rights leader
Dr. Martin Luther King died
Monday night, she was 78-
years-old. I knew her in another
way.
I had the pleasure of working
with Mrs. King in the late 70s
as a member of the campaign
staff of then President Jimmy
Carter. During that time, I
worked with a lot of celebrities
and high profile people. My job
mostly was to see that they got
where they were supposed to be
on time, made the right speech,
spoke to the right people, and
got them back to the hotel and
out of town on time.
It was a Friday night and I
was to meet Mrs. King at the
airport. She called to say that
she had friends in Pensacola
and not to worry about greeting
her at the airport. She would
met me, she said, at the hotel
for our briefing.
Admittedly, I was a little


nervous as she was the second
high profile person I was
responsible for, and the first
one that I handled alone. As I
waited for her looking very
official with her weekend
schedule clutched tightly in my
hand she walked in the restau-
rant. Anyone could tell that I
was a nervous as a long tailed
cat in a room full of rocking
chairs.
Surrounded by an entourage
of very big men and on the arm
of her son, Dexter, she walked
over to me as I stood up to
greet her. She waved for me to
sit down and asked how I was
doing before I could ask her
first.
The weekend was unevent-
ful. Everything went off with-
out so much as a hitch in the
escorts.
Mrs. King was one of the
most kind and gracious people I
have ever had the honor of
meeting. The first thing that


you notice,about her is her
calming, almost hypnotic,
voice. Her tone is modulated.
Her enunciation is perfect. Her
skin and makeup were flawless
as was her hair. I had never
seen anyone like her in my life.
The second thing you notice
is how she looks at you. It's
wasn't a stare, but she looked
you in the eyes. Kind of like the
way a mother looks at you. It
must have been hard being one
of her kids, they probably never
could get away with telling lies.
Throughout that weekend,
she was such a joy to work with
because she put me at ease and
that helped me do my job.
Everybody has memories of
people they have come across'
in their lives. I shall always
remember Coretta Scott King,
not as the wife of Martin Luther
King Jr., but as one of the most
kind and gracious women I
ever had the pleasure of meet-
ing.


Gadsden County lost a true saint last
week with the passing of Florence Brad-
well.
I met Mrs. Bradwell when I came to
work here at the paper six years ago. She
was a regular contributor to the Gadsden
County Times with her religious ad "It's
Time for a Change."
Mrs. Bradwell had a flair about the way
she wrote. She wrote in a simple and
straightforward way, not to overwhelm you,
but instead to share a message that flowed
through all of her columns: God can take
care of everything.
She wrote just as she would have
preached the sermon. Her purpose was that
you and I would make the changes to a bet-
ter life. For Mrs. Bradwell it was always a'
time for a change. She wrote out of her own
experiences about the many trials and tribu-
lations that life throws at us, but in the end
she always reminded us that there is a
higher authority that was always in control.
"God is in control," was her favorite charge
to her readers.
She made Christianity simple to under-
stand with her down home antidotes. "We

A bank on



the move!


Premier Bank leaves downtown

corner for new facility

on Pat Thomas Parkway


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
Premier Bank moved into its new digs on Pat
Thomas Parkway Monday morning with a 10
a.m. ribbon cutting. Hundreds were on hand
to see the final product, but over the weekend,
all employees plus some on loan from Talla-
hassee were hustling to get ready. But before
they could move into the new place they had
to clear out of the temporary office at the cor-


ner of Jefferson and Adams in downtown
Quincy. S'
"We're going to make it," said Vice President
Sherry Vanlandingham Friday afternoon, just
as president Bruce Rowan pulled into the
parking lot with a pickup truck load of odds
and ends.
But all went off without a hitch Monday and
the words "Now Open" went up on the mar-
quee.

teach our children to say no to drugs," she
wrote, but "it's time to teach them to say
yes to so many opportunities and blessings
that God has prepared for them."
For Mrs. Bradwell it came down to doing
the right thing as she said in one of her
columns, With Jesus in the heart, the thief
will stop stealing, the murderers will stop
killing, the liars will stop lying, the dopers
and the alcoholics will stop." She knew that
with a changed heart people change from
their wicked ways. "We all need to make
room in our hearts for Jesus" was her sim-
ple sermon.
She wrote from her heart and she always
wanted to convey to those that would take
the time to read her message that God could
help you, no matter what state of life you
happened to be in.
Her compassion for people, seemed to be
her driving force. Her work at the jail every
week proved that she was willing to take
that compassion wherever she was led to
go.
Many times she and I have talked about
her love of her family, her church and the
ministry God had given her on this earth to
fulfill.
I'm sure she was ready when called for
her to come home, but I kinda got a feeling
she would have liked to have had a little
more time to talk to a few more people
about God's grate and their salvation. She
was just that kind of person.
There were hardly any of her columns or
ads over the years that did not talk at some
point about her concerns about the young
people of Gadsden County.
Mrs. Bradwell cared about the future and
that future was based on the young people
of today, she would always tell me.
She worried that young people would
drift away from God and leave their church
ties behind as they grew older. She told me
on many occasions that she wanted the
community to step up to the plate and start
working harder with young people.
In her columns she would ask that people
would pray for the young people and all of
the worldly things that young folks face in
today's society. "Pray for our young peo-
ple" she pleaded every week.
Over the past few months she wrote a lot
about the disasters of hurricanes like Dennis
and Wilma. They were a reminder she said
of life and its many tragedies. She didn't
say they were the end of the world, only
another part of the life we live and the
world around us. "Be thankful," she said
that all of the hurricanes missed us, but pray
for and help those that had been less fortu-
nate.
Just preaching what to do was not
enough, she wanted people to live their
lives as close to God as they could.
I have on several occasions mentioned
Mrs. Bradwell in my column. I think she
was on target when she wrote about there
needing to be changes and she preached it
week after week after week. I think she is
still right.
I'll miss seeing her in the office and talk-
ing to her about her church and especially
about her husband whom she loved dearly.
In one of her last columns she wrote that
people needed to "get back to the basics"
and pray more, attend church, come pre-
pared, and keep your meetings humorous.
That was the essence of Mrs. Bradwell.
She loved life and people. Her life was an
example of how a Christian should live. It
was by her actions that you knew she was a
Christian
Those of us who knew her will miss her
and she wrote and preached for so many
years, she is in a better place and most
importantly she was ready for the change.

A Change Has Come
Dear friends,

I'm in another place now! It has been my pleasure to write
Words of Inspiration to you over the years. It is my hope
that you will remember some of what I had to say to you .
from the Almighty God. He used me as His humble ;z .
instrument to write to you. I enjoyed writing and hope it
was a blessing. A change has come and I have gone to be with the Lord.
Please seek, accept, and prepare to meet Him and live a life of eternity just as
he has promised you. Keep Christ first in your life. It is through Him that we
live and have our being. Remember to "Trust in the Lord with all thine heart;
and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge Him,
and He shall direct thy paths." Proverbs 3:5-6. Finally friends, "Do all things
without murmurings and disputings, that ye may be blameless and harmless,
the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation,
among whom ye shine as lights in the world." Philippians 2:14-15. "For me to
live is Christ, and to die is gain." Philippians 1:21 "God Bless You and Stay
with the Lord!"

Schools get $242,000 for new teachers


Gadsden County was one of only seven Florida school
districts that was recently awarded the Early
Career/Early Placement Support Programs for Teachers
in High Need Schools and Content Areas grant.
The award was for $242,000, which will be used to
build a more comprehensive and effective support pro-
gram for beginning and preservice teachers. Grantwrit-
ers Dr. Dianna Decker and Jan Anderson wrote in the
abstract "All students deserve quality teacfiers.-Bec:m-
ing a qualiLt or master teacher is a process.
With structured, effective beginning teacher programs,
the disparity in student achievement data that exists
between novice and master teachers will be narrowed,
and the sometimes painful and often frustrating process
of what it takes to become a master teacher will be
reduced".
According to the grant budget, beginning teachers
will have funding for classroom materials, travel to con-
ferences and training, professional books, electronic
devices for classroom data collection, and stipends for
summer and after-school hours workshops.


George W. Munroe Elementary School elected new Saf
cers this past week. The new commanding officers a
Ainsworth, Captain; Miguel Davis, Lieutenant; and
Lieutenant. Deputy Jennifer Buckhalt oversees the acti


Principals will receive funding for beginning teacher
support projects at the school level and electronic note-
books for documenting classroom walkthrough observa-
tions. The district will use some of the funding to
develop web-based resources for beginning and preser-
vice teachers and to arrange quality conferences, train-
ings and workshops.
FAMU is a partner in the project and will recruit edu-
cation majors to participate in the -tea6her activities.
FAMU faculty \ ill also' coordinate preservice teacher
activities with Gadsden County beginning teachers and
will serve as consultants for workshops and training.
"We are excited about building an effective support
base for our beginning and preservice teachers. We
want to develop good teachers in Gadsden County and
we want to keep them in Gadsden County," says Super-
intendent Reginald James, "Our relationship with
FAMU continues to be strong, and we appreciate their
role in assisting our district with recruitment efforts."
The project period runs January, 2006 through Sep-
tember, 2006.

Groundhog Day has been a tradition every year in
America and Canada since 1886. Every February 2, --
tradition states that a groundhog will predict whether spring will
come early, or if we will have to endure 6 more weeks of winter If the
groundhog, also called a woodchuck, comes out of his burrow and stays
above ground, spring will come on time as predicted. But if the groundhog
sees his shadow and is scared back into the ground, six more weeks of winter
and bad weather will come.
This holiday has it's origins as far back as the Roman Empire. Soldiers in
the Roman legion would make the same prediction with a similar animal, the
hedgehog. If the hedgehog caste a shadow then what the Romans called "The
Second Winter" would start. This "Second Winter" was actually the same
weather that we refer to in modern times as "six more weeks of winter".
The most famous of weather predicting groundhogs lives in Punxsutawney,
Pennsylvania and goes by the name Punxsutawney Phil. His home, or burrow,
in Pennsylvania is called Gobbler's Knob, Phil was featured in the popular
1993 movie, Groundhog Day. Other famous groundhogs are General
Beauregard Lee from Atlanta, Georgia, Balzac Billy, from Balzac in Alberta,
Canada, and Jimmy the Groundhog in Sun Prairie, Wisconsin

:Rep. Marti Coley (R-Marianna), Sen. Al Lawson (D-Tallahassee), and Rep. Curtis Richardson (D-Quincy)
listened as elected officials and citizens presented their "wish-list" for the 2006 session.

said.
Her program, Panhandle Area Education Consortium,
serves 17 school districts, and the goal is to ensure that
the children get a equal education. "If a child has no
food, no place to live and is in a home in turmoil, we
cannot meet our objectives," she said.
"She is more than a role model. The students look to
her as an aunt or mother figure. In fact, she calls them
her sons and'daughters. She has a very good rapport.
She encourages them to hang in there when they want
to give up, she always has time for kids. They know
when she says something, they can count on her," said


Cherith Sivyer, the English As A Second Language
director for the school district.
Maria's contributions have also been recognized by the
Mexican government. In 1999, she was awarded the
Ohtli Award for Humanitarian Service. And she hasn't
stopped. Later this week she is headed for a training
course to learn how to detect women who have been
brought to this country illegally and kept in human
bondage. "There is more of it than people realize," she
said.
And just last week a young woman that Maria encour-
ages to attend college told he that she had selected her
to become her mentor. "That's a wonderful feeling," she
said.
Does she have time for anything else?
Yes. "The Little Taste Of Mexico dance groups are
what I do for fun." Maria said.

Issues such as the hospital were at
the top of the list and delegation
-members said they are working on
'ctifying the problem. "All of these
rural hospitals are in trouble. We
have been working on the hospitals.
It's a top priority," he said.
And while the entire county's plat-
form was presented by Dixon, each
municipality had the opportunity to
add their pet projects.
"I want to thank the county for this
joint effort, but there are a few
things that we need your help with
in Chattahoochee. We thought we
had solved the Crawfish Island
problem, but things happened and
we need your help there as well as
.the shelter for special needs and
general purpose, for $2.9 million we
'could have that regional shelter,"
reiterated Lee Garner, city manager
,of Chattahoochee.


Havana

"All of the cities' usage is going
downwn" which Groom said helps bring
the cost per unit down. But, the high
I ,gas prices have created a lot of town
"-meetings throughout his district con-
cerming gas prices.
The Town of Havana since the fall
has been vigorously warning their cus-
tomers that gas prices will be going up
and heating bills were going to be
high. City manager Susan Freiden pro-
vided several opportunities in the fall
for residents to hear experts on ways to
conserve energy during the cold
months -,f inter Onli a fev.. ic-i.eniii
participated in th,: srrminars
In addition, the town offers a free
energy audit of homes to help them
..It ,c the rising cost of energy use.
'reiden stated that the hurricanes that
'hit the Gulf Coast this past fall had
destroyed the gas well that supplied
much of this areas natural gas, another
factor in rising gas prices.
Groom warned that residents still
were not out of the cold weather time
iof year and could still see their heating
(bills rise again. "We still got a lot
,pf winter to go," Groom said.'
Groom said that MGAG was looking
,at purchasing natural gas wells as a
way of cutting costs. But he warned
.that those wells cost a lot of money
and the benefits would take a while to
teach the customers.
I In addition Grooms had a report just


Qunicy Mayor Sherrie Taylor
asked for help in getting additional
CBDG funding because she said,
"housing is a problem in Quincy."
She said the city is looking to annex
properties on all sides and additional
infrastructure dollars are needed for
"smart growth."
"To put it in a nutshell, we need
jobs, better housing and a good edu-
cation system," Taylor said.
Paul Piller, Midway's city man-
ager, was looking for help for a new
fire station. And Greensboro Mayor
Buddy Pitts, said he needs "just a lit-
tle bit more money to pave just a
few more streets."
Ron Richardson of Havana got the
delegation's attention with his pres-
entation on the Alternative Fuel
Movement. Richardson said many
of the county's problems could be
solved if they looked to planting
soybeans that could be used as bio-
diesel. "We have land lying fallow
that could be used to plant these
crops. The system would pay for
itself in a few years. We could fuel


out about the profits posted by Exxon
Mobil Corporation. T h e
report from the Atlanta Joumal-Con-
stitution stated that the corporation
"posted record profits"- at $10.71 bil-
lion for the fourth quarter and $36.13
billion for the year. Groom said that
figured out to be about $1500 profit
every second.
Exxon, Groom said, was one of the
companies from which MGAG pur-
chases gas.
In other business:
The council approved a resolution
supporting the "Step Up Florida" pro-
gram to get Floridians up and walking.
The one-day event will be held Febru-
ary 15 according to Beryl Richardson.
Richardson, a cardiovascular heart
cOL,.unselo v ih the, Gadsden County
Health Department, presented a pro-
gram to the council.
Freiden was instructed to see what
the Town of Havana could provide to
Lillian Johnson of the Gadsden
County Adult/Youth and Community
Education Center. Johnson is starting
an adult education and youth voca-
tional training program at the Havana
Middle School. Johnson said the pro-
gram needed several computers.
Freiden gave the council an update
on the US 27 Project through Havana.
She said that the construction work
was going well. She added that FDOT
had done several additional projects as
they had worked along the highway.
Freiden gave the council an update
on the two new subdivisions recently
started. Cascade Falls and Twin Pines

other things that use diesel," he said.
Lawson said he was interested in
Richardson's ideas and said he
would contact him.
Garrett Walker of Midway told the
delegation he feared for the future of
Midway if developers were allowed
to construct thousands of homes
with septic tanks. He predicted that
in years to come Little River and the
Ochlockonee River will be contami-
nated.
"It would be nice if we had all of
that infrastructure in place before
the building, but it's just not going
to happen," Lawson said.
"It's been a good night. The ses-
sion starts March 7. Feel free to call
our aides, because you can't always

The biggest non-
official holiday of
the year is Sunday
as most everyone
gears up for another
Super Bowl Sun-
day. Tlus year's
match up doesn't
contain a major
media market and
in fact it's host
Detroit is not what
you might think of
as a major media
market city.
Pittsburgh and
Seattle the teams
involved in the
game don't have a
great national fol-


lowing though Pittsburgh and (heir "Steel
Curtain' teams are well remembered.
Pittsburgh will be making its sixth
appearance in a Super Bowl wlule it will be
a first for Seattle.
The Steeler's are a wild card AFC team.
Oddly enough they are favorite's in the
game because Seattle brings in the NFC's
best record.
I guess it's hard to ignore the fact that the.
Steeler's defeated three tough teams in
Cincinnati. Indianapolis, and Denver on the
road Not only did they beat those teams
they did it in convincing style.
Not much seems to be known about the
Seahawks expect they do have league MVP
Shaun Alexander a former Alabama player.
I think this may be one of the better
Super Bowl's and like every, year I'm asked
some folks what they think the outcome will
be and why they feel that way.


Cliff Thame., a D.O.C. Officer, thinks
Pittsburgh will win 31-28 because they have
the best quarterback.
Ole buddy. retiree. Walt Fleming, likes
Pittsburgh 24-14 on a feeling.
John Clark. surveyor, says it's Pitsburgh
21 Seattle 17. due to the Steelers tenacity in
getting there.
Finley Cook. contractor, picks Pittsburgh
24-21 saying "I'm an old "Steel Curtain"
guy."
Andy Newell, the Pastor of New
Philadelphia Presbyterian Church. feels it
will be a close game with the Steeler's win-
ning 28-24.
Angus Hinson. Hin-on's Fuel Cards,
always pulls for Pittsburgh and thinks
they'll win 17-13.
Carl Daniels. Security Guard, sa s
"'Jerome Bettis % ill have a field day and
Pittsburgh wins 35-17".


Andy Gas. East Gadsden A.D hkes the
Steelers by 28-17 because they come in hot.
Jim Posey. teacher Riversprings Middle
School. goes vith the Seahav. ks 19-14
because they're the underdogs
Cynthia O'Donnell. Munroe High Schopl
Math Teacher, eives the nod to Pittsburgh
due to the Steeler's staying power
Chris Hov ard. Storekeeper II. FSH.
without a doubt says Pittsburgh v. tlJ win 27-
17 because Jerome Bettis till min in his
home town.
Joe Ferolito. World',s worst football pre-
dictor will go against the grain and gi\e n to
Seattle by a 27-24 score. The Seahawks are
better than most people thdnk and the', ma ,
just come in %with an attitude since they're
the underdog.
Happy Super BowlI Sunda.

district rival Rickards 58-44, before going on the road to
defeat Florida High 66-44 on Saturday night, and romp-
ing Suwannee County 70-37 on Tuesday night.
The win over Rickards came in front of a boisterous
crowd as the Jaguars used both strong inside and out-
side games offensively and defensively to control the
Raiders.
Darius Jackson played a big part both ways leading
the scoring with 20 points including 3, 3-point goals,
getting 10 assists, and helping bottle up the Rickards
guards on defense.
The Jaguar big men Samuel McLaurin, Reshard
McGill, and Patrick Smith held the inside game down
combining for 29 points and 51 rebounds. McGill had
the bulk of the inside points with 16 while McLaurin's
21 rebounds topped that category. McLaurin also has 11
blocked shots.
Ricky Gennie's 10 steals and 10 assists by Earl
Thomas rounded out the stats in the big district win
which insured the Jaguars the top'seedin theiriupocm-,A

game with Jackson and Smith accounting for double-
figure scores with 12 each.
S. McLaurin had 17 rebounds in the game, Smith

helps Munroe


win catfight
Clay White popped in 24 points and had a dandy floor
game leading Munroe to a 61-43 win over Altha Tues-
day night in the Bobcat Gym. White had 5 assists in the
game and his ball handling caused Wildcat fouls which
sent him to the free throw line where he made 13 of 13
attempts.
Justin Smith and John Dooner added 13 points each
for the Bobcats in the game and Dooner and Ben Young
had 7 rebounds each.
John Mark Peacock topped the Altha scorers with 20.

Jackson II

ANNOUNCES lI

CANDIDACY
My name is Clarence M. Jackson, II and it gives me great pleasure to officially announce
my candidacy for the District 4 Gadsden County School Board Seat.
I was born, raised, and educated in Gadsden County and have lived in this area, practi-
cally, all of my life. My parents, Lessie M. and Clarence Jackson Sr. of Gretna taught me '
the importance of appreciating the subtleties of country living and from a very young age .
I've known that I would always call Gadsden County home.
I have a passion for this county and that passion stretches well beyond my enjoyable past here. Like my mother and father, my wife Dee
and I have made a long-term commitment to this area and have chosen to raise our three beautiful children here. Jan, our youngest son, is
yet a lap baby and hasn't had an opportunity to experience the joys of attending grade school. But Jaelen, my oldest son, third grader at
Gretna Elementary and my daughter Joana, a first grader, at the same school, are both perennial honor roll students. And their future
scholastic success is heavily dependant upon the vitality of this school district. So my passion, like other concerned parents and citizens of
this county, is deeply rooted in my responsibility to afford my own children the kind of education experience that will lead them to their
own place in prosperity's palace. And I'm confident that I don't have to withdraw them from the public school system to ensure that my
responsibility is met.
I'm also confident that this school district can return to the Glory days of it's past and revive it's, once expected, ability to produce some
of the greatest minds academia has ever known. And with that being said, I'm not sold on the idea that because Gadsden County is a low
socio economic area that our schools can't be successful. If I believed that, I'd have to admit that my own parents are liars. No way could
they have risen from the bowels of poverty to become who they've become. Neither do I buy the excuse that because many of our chil-
dren come from single parent homes, they can't succeed. If I believed that, I'd have to emphatically profess that most of our students need
not attend a day of school.
The truth of the matter is, ouf school system is suffering because there's not enough collaboration between communities and schools, par-
ents and teachers, elected officials and the people they're paid to represent. If we can't begin to bridge the gap. between these evident
divides we can't even begin to address the real issues that preclude the accomplishment of our shared goals. For instance, the discipline or
the lack there of in our schools is absolutely deplorable. I can say that because for nearly a decade I've worked in our school system. I've
spent many hours on school campuses in recent years and from an insider's point of view, I really don't know how we expect our educa-
tional institutions to operate in excellence when so much of the school day is dedicated to combating what I consider "downright disre-
spect for authority". I may be wrong, but I don't believe that we need more money pumped into the school district to teach our students
the importance of common decency and respect. What we need is a uniformed effort to bring back the relevance of a proverb that our fore-
fathers held dear. You've heard it. "It takes a village to raise a child". I firmly believe that the conduit to this district's resurgence is a fer-
vent commitment to resolving our vast disciplinary deficiencies by strongly enforcing our current code of student conduct. But we'll never
see the accomplishment of a resolution as simple as this, unless we understand that from the'least of us to the greatest of us, we all play a
vital role. And believe it or not, five basic things from your school board representative can be invaluable to the change in direction our
schools so desperately need. Here's what you can expect if I'm elected.
18 i3 ILB I TY One can't honestly aid in the development of school policy unless he becomes a part of the fabric of the everyday school
!erience. I'll be there on a regular basis to see what the needs of our students, teachers, and administrators really are so that I might bring
relevant solution based idea to the table.
d PP ORTUNITIES It's not difficult at all to put resources in the hands of those students who need them most. Through a collabo-
.., effort with the Florida Department of Corrections, my ministry has been able to put refurbished computers into the hands of many
less fortunate households. I'll make sure that this and other such practices continue to be available for families.
I NCLUSION If one feels as though he's apart of the process, that one is more inclined to be an active participant in the process. I
S... hear your ideas. I want to glean from your thoughts. I'll initiate Bi-Monthly town hall meetings to allow my constituents to hear
proposed policy and allow community feedback. I'll also pay for and maintain a website that will be dedicated to the furtherance of infor-
mation sharing.
I ONCERN I understand that people don't really care about how much know until they know how much you care. Genuine con-
.:,,, .c-.ni those in authority is essential if a long lasting relationship is to be forged between our communities and schools. And there are
three reasons why you should trust that I possess that Genuine concern for the future of our school district; Jaelen, Joana, Jan.
XPECTATION I'll expect my colleagues, administrators, teachers, staff, students, and communities to join me in an all out effort
.. our school district and put it back on the pedestal of greatness from which it once stood.proudly.
I must admit I've only scratched the surface of issues that deeply concerns me about our school district and I'm sure that you have con-
cerns that are equally as important as those that I harbor. That's why it's so important that I run for this office. You need to be heard too.
We all need to be heard. And we all need to share in the responsibility of cultivating the greatest resource this county has; our children, I'm
no politician and I'm too busy to play politics with our children's futures. I respect and will continue to respect my opponent and will not
run a campaign against him. This campaign is strictly about issues. And if elected you have my word; I'll be a strong voice for you. And
the Gadsden County School Board will hear you, they will respect what you have to say, and they will understand that the people of District
4 and all citizens of this county has an advocate in Clarence M. Jackson II.

East Gadsden JROTC wins


FAMU drill meet 3-peat


The East Gadsden High School's
Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps
(JROTC) Drill Team won the first
place overall trophy for the third con-
secutive year at the Fourth Annual Per-
shing Rifle Drill competition held at
FAMU on January 21.
EGHS JROTC collaboratively
brought home 10 trophies: four first
places in the Male Color Guard, Male
Unarmed Squad Regulation, Male
Unarmed Platoon Regulation, and
Female Armed Squad Regulation.
The commanders are C/CPT Mon-
terrius Neal, C/MSG Jesse Marshall,
C/2LT Gary Russ and C/SFC Jovon
Ford, respectively.
MSG Jerome A. Kerrison and SFC
Michael Williams have worked long
hours to prepare the students for this
competition.
The JROTC emphasizes building-
character traits that, will help students
survive and succeed in an increasingly
complex world. ;The program does
this through developing the student's
sense of personal responsibility, build-
ing life skills, and providing leadership
training and opportunities. The drill
team builds teamwork and focus on
attention to details and unit pride.
This year's drill team is comprised of
many freshman and first year cadets.
Despite this, cadets performed in an
average of four events per competi-
tion.
Several new cadets are doing an out-
standing job, including: Kendrick
Brown, Phelisa Collier. Shatiertnclk
Dukes, Malcom Fisher, Ronald Harris,
Tonica McDonald, Tiffanie Mansfield,
Coby Marshall, Lawrence Pillers,
Creshonna Price, Monet Thomas, and
Roderick Vickers.
Several other returning cadets exe-


cuted a stellar performance, including:
Xavier Barnes, Altrimese Bell, Ken-,,
neth Bouie, Jenea Carter, Brain Cla-,'
Jovon Ford, Jacquelin Grant Slhame icka
Hills, Jaleesa Kemp, Kimbeil\ MNI.lah-
ews, laeshea McDavid, Chsltoplicl
McGriff, Jasmine McNealy, Monter-
rius Neal, and Gary Russ.
MSG Kerrison stated, "The o'. c.ll
team performance was outstanding,
but we still have a lot of work to do to
prepare for the upcoming competi-
tions. The remaining meets will be
challenging, because the cadets will be
competing against the best in the
nation. Our cadets will need to focus,
pay attention to details, and execute
the movements in unison and with pre-
cision."
The drill team is working hard to pre-
pare for four major drill meets. The
next. competition is the Area-11
Rcgio,-nal DnlI Meet at Chipley High
School on February 25, 2006, where
cadets will qualify for the State Drill
Meet. The state meet will be held in
Lakeland, FL, on March 11, and then
the next competition will be the U. S.
Army Cadet Command Eastern
Region Drill Championship (Army
Nationals) in Macon, GA on March
25.
This year the cadets have been
invited to the prestigious 2006
National High School Drill Team
Champions on May 5 in Daytona
Beach. This is the first time any
school in Gadsden County history has
been invited to this competition.
In order to participate'in the compe-
titions (State and Nationals), the drill
team is currently raising money to pay
for travel, food, and lodging expenses.
If you are interested in helping support
the program in this endeavor, finan-


cially or otherwise, please contact the
school's JROTC at (850) 539-2882,

Dear Gadsden, Liberty & Calhoun
County Residents,
Three years ago I obtained my Florida Dealer's
License due to the frustration of shopping for a
used car. The following three things made car
shopping a big headache for me:-
*Haggling for the best price
*Having to come up. with $2000 to $3000 for a
down payment, taxes.. title andeag ,.
*Paying someone a $5000 $6000 profit on a

always


$10,000 automobile.
Here's what we've done at Direct Automotive
Wholesale:
*All vehicles are priced at the "Loan Value",
which is the price credit unions and banks will
loan you on this vehicle.
*We require NO DOWN PAYMENT on any of
our vehicles. We can even help with your taxes
and tag most of the time.


*At LOAN VALUE. we make a small profit and
you get a great deal!
The best Part is we have family on the lot. NOT
HIGH PRESSURE SALES PEOPLE.
If you don't see the car of your dreams in this
ad, call us. We'll get you pre-approvEd. tell you
what it will cost and buy it for you.. ,
We appreciate your supporting us. Come by or
call. .


We sell all of our cars at
a discount so you don't
need a down payment!
