County's dirt roads being paved


Offers to go 'halves'

with motel owners

on temporary septics

by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

A lot of people living on dirt roads in the
county are going to be happy by the end of
the year. The board of county commis-
sioners approved a list of roads to be


paved.
"Our goal is to do them all, but we can't
control the weather," said Robert Presnell,
director of public works.
The roads that are currently approved
and contracted are: Leslie Lewis Road,
Conrad Hills Road, Our Street, My Street,
Mason Drive, Sally Brown Road, Mt.
Hosey Church Road, Thomas Drive,
Carswell Road, Willie Bradley Road,
Sadberry Road, Tommy Trail, Gene
Williams Road and Ranch Road. Paving
for some of these roads has already been


completed.
The proposed new roads for 2005-2006
include'Ancient Oaks, A & L Drive, David
Clemons Road, Dodger Ball Park, Blount
Road, Smith Lane, Ridgewood Road,
Grice Road, Kenon Lane, Stella Gray
Road, Drew Ellis Lane, West Line Street,

One woman who came to the meeting to
complain about her road was surprised to
learn that it is already scheduled for
paving this year.
In other matters, commissioners


approved a resolution to support Step Up
Florida, a day celebrating fitness and
encouraging physical exercise for all
Floridians. On Feb. 15, a flag bearing the
Step Up Florida logo will pass from
Liberty County officials to Gadsden
County officials for a trek through the
county before it is passed off to Leon
County officials that evening.
Commissioners agreed will allow the
county manager and the county attorney
to meet with partners in two hotels under

Library finished



early; CBI gives



back to county

County officials and representatives from Cook Brothers, Inc., the construction company that built
the William "Bill" McGill Library on Pat Thomas Parkway, gathered outside the building Monday
morning for a special presentation.


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

It doesn't happen often. And it
may be a first in Gadsden
County. Monday morning CBI -
Cook Brothers, Incorporated -
gave back $27,381 to the county.
The money was the company's
share saved when the construc-
tion phase of the William "Bill"
McGill Library was completed
nearly two months ahead of
schedule.
"The overall savings for com-
pleting the project ahead of time
was $92,000,". said Finley Cook,
CBI president. He said he was
able to finish the project early
because he used local people.
"I like to use people from
around here when I can. I enjoy
working for the county," he said.
The money will be used to pur-
chase new furniture for the 1.6
million dollar facility.


The new library has 14,500
square feet and has a separate
computer room as well as a room
for public meetings. Library
Director Jane Mock said she and
her staff are anxious to move.
"We've done a lot of weeding
already in anticipation, of the
move but we're still very over-
crowded," she said.
The one-story library will elim-
inate the need for an elevatorand
stairs. "The new library will be a
lot more accessible and a lot
more visible," Mock said.


Midway

crowd says

no PTLEA

annexation


Cites too much change
in the face of local
community makeup

by BYRON SPIRES
Times Staff Writer

Reminiscent of days gone by,
Midway's council meeting room
erupted last Thursday night in an
uproar of racial innuendo.
A roomful of residents wantirig
to stop Midway's growth was on
hand to let the council know that
they did not want Tallahassee
Community College's Pat
Thomas Academy annexed into
the city limits.
The council had just heard the
first reading of an ordinance that
would annex the 1264 acre acad-
emy into the city when the may-
hem started.
Jim Murdaugh, vice president
with TCC and Pat Thomas Law
Enforcement Academy director
was before the council request-
ing the annexation and was
responding to remarks made
from the audience when one parr
ticipant put the problem in no
uncertain terms.
"Start at that end and it will
look like that all across the
board," Sam Stevens said as lie
pointed to the council table.


Mayors shake hands

on interconnect
agreement

by BYRON SPIRES
Times Staff Writer

It was hands across the borders
last week when Quincy mayor


Sherrie Taylor and Gretna mayor
Helen Franks sealed the inter-
local water agreement between
the two cities with a handshake.
The agreement, which has taken
several months to iron out,
allows Gretna access to Quincy's
water supply in Mt. Pleasant.
The connecting of the Quincy
water supply to the Gretna water
system is one of the final steps in


removing a Florida Department
of Environmental Protection
sanction that will not allow any
new water hook-ups to the city's
water service.
"We are here today to make
this idea a reality," Antonio
Jefferson, Quincy's purchasing
officer, said at last weeks historic
meeting of the two cities' may-
ors.


Jefferson has a history with the
City of Gretna as interim city
manager and was instrumental in
developing the interlocal agree-
ment prior to leaving that posi-
tion.
"We are so happy to have this
interconnect with Quincy. Now
we are able to grow," Franks
said. She said that the inter-

Doug and Yvonne Brown are more in love than ever


.by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor


It sounds corny now in this age
of five-minute fix up dates, on-
.line romances, and actually paying
-people to set up with a date with
someone "compatible", but Doug
Brown got the love of his life the
old fashioned way. He married the
girl next door and they have been
happily in love for over 30 years.
; It seems like Doug and Yvonne
.(Livingston) Brown have been in
-love all of their lives. Although
they've only been married 33
. years come July, others who know
the couple will tell you that
,they're still in love after all these
..years. The couple will tell you that
they are more in love now than
they have ever been.
:,They actually met for the first
time when Yvonne was 11 and
Doug was 15. Doug said he knew
she was-going to be his wife but
Yvonne had no idea what was on
his mind. After all, she wasn't
even interested in boys. "I wasn't
serious, I just wanted to be
friends. I used to babysit his sis-
ter's kids," Yvonne said.
Ever the gentleman, Doug never
even made a pass at Yvonne. As
time went by he graduated from
high school and joined the Army.
Yvonne was never far from his
mind and the two began writing
each other. "I knew she was my
soul mate," Doug said, lovingly
grabbing Yvonne's hand.
The two wrote each other while
he was in the Army but Yvonne's
feelings remained platonic. As
young soldiers do, Doug came
home on leave and he was look-
ing pretty good in his .uniform.
The local girls came looking and
liked what they saw. The new
Doug Brown didn't look like the
old Doug Brown who had left
Quincy months earlier. "A lot of
girls were coming around him and
he asked me 'do you still love me'
and it dawned on me that he was
pretty cute," she said.


The Browns credit God for keeping them together for 33 years. Not a day goes by when
the couple isn't holding hands and affirming how much they appreciate each other.


Yvonne couldn't date until she
was sixteen, so their courting was
limited to the living room watch-
ing television with the family.
After her sixteenth birthday they
went on their first date. Doug was
something of an amateur photog-
rapher and he took her to a wed-
ding in Whigham, GA, he'd
agreed to photograph for his sis-
ter-in-law.
One night the two went to a
dance at the Catholic Church.
"There was a guy there who
wouldn't leave me alone. After a
while Doug stepped up and told
they guy that it was enough. From
then on, I have always felt safe


with Doug," she said.
Yvonne eventually moved back
to California and to some it might
have seemed the relationship was
doomed. Doug couldn't lose his
love, he had to get her near him.
"My heart was heavy. I couldn't
sleep. I called her and I wrote to
her," Doug said. In one of the let-
ters he asked her to many him. He
waited a few days and when no
answer came he called.
"Did you get my letter?" he
asked.
"What letter?" replied Yvonne.
When he explained what was in
the letter she said "yes" and was
back in Quincy within a week.


Although they never found out
what happened to the letter it
doesn't matter. "I never got the
letter but I just felt it (the proposal
of marriage) was right," she said.
They were married with a small
ceremony in her mother's living
room in the presence of their fam-
ilies. Yvonne's sister, Sharon, was
a notary and married the couple.
Yvonne was calm but Doug was
nervous. "My glasses fogged up. I
was shaking and I could barely
talk," he said. As soon as the cere-
mony was over he calmed down.
For the honeymoon, they set out
for Panama City Beach's Miracle

cari


is leaving


That was the place to go. Doug
with his long hair and "hippie"
looks and pretty, fresh-faced
Yvonne were ready for the world.
"The only thing missing was the
Volkswagen bus," Doug said.
Soon two children came along,
Justin and Wendy. Money was
tight and times were tough. When
the couple found themselves liv-
ing off a 20 pound bag of pota-
toes, Doug re-enlisted in the
Army. The young family found
themselves in Germany for seven
years.
"I think that living away from
home and from relatives really
brought us together. We had each
other and we had to work out our
problems. It was just us and we
had to depend on each. Times
were tough but depending on each
other saved our marriage. We built
trust in each other and that's a
very important part of marriage,"
Yvonne said.
Their daughter Wendy is married
and has three children of her own.
Justin graduated from college and
lives at home right now. But the
two share a bond that can never
be broken. "It took us two years to
find two recliners that we could
put side-by-side," Yvonne said
and Doug added, "so we could
hold hand while we watched TV."
They love traveling together and
their next trip will be a stop off in
Savannah, GA, before heading to
the nation's capital. "We've been
all over the world and to most
parts of the United States, but
we've never been to Washington,
DC," he said.
They are still romantically play-
ful. Sit down with them more than
five minutes and they are going to
touch each other with either a love
tap on the arm or holding hands.
Once, recalled Yvonne, they were
in a store parking lot somewhere
in Indiana and Doug locked her
out of the car. "He wouldn't let
me in until I screamed 'I love
you'. People were looking but we
didn't care Yvonne launched


The Browns July 15, 1973
Nothing Doug does surprises her
because he is the family's practi-
cal joker. But he never jokes about
how much he loves his wife and
his family. "He is our center. We
radiate out from him," Yvonne
said, adding, "when he loves, he
loves 100 percent."
She recalled the time when
Justin was a baby and had medical
problems. "He pulled the bassinet
over to his side of the bed and he
slept every night with his hand on
Justin's chest to make sure he kept
breathing," she said, tears welling
up in her eyes.
Doug got serious when he was
asked to describe the most roman-
tic thing Yvonne has ever done for
him. "She gave me two wonderful
kids, followed me all over the
earth. She is God's helpmate," he
said.
Their love is strong, but they are
quick to give God all of the credit.
"The grace of God is what has
kept us together," she said. Next
July they will renew their vows at
Grace Baptist Church where they
attend church every Sunday.
This year for Valentine's Day
they will be back in church to
have dinner with fellow members!.
"The place is all decorated and it
looks really nice," Yvonne said,
preferring church to restaurants on
the day set aside to celebrate love.
She doesn't know what Doug
has up his sleeve. "One year, a
few years ago, he wrote a love
poem to me that won the church's
contest...it was so beautiful,"
Yvonne said.

Volunteer mentors honored


Gretna looks at planning issues


by BYRON SPIRES
Times Staff Writer
Gadsden County's mentors were honored last
week for their efforts in the Gadsden County
School system's H.O.S.T.S ( Helping One
Student to Succeed) program.
Mentors from several county schools were
present for the inspiring speakers who talked
about their commitment to the mentoring pro-
gram and to hear from HOSTS students who have
received help from mentors.
Former HOSTS director Tammy Farlin was
presented flowers for her devotion to the pro-
gram. Farlin is now the principal of the Gadsden


>1< .


Elementary Magnet School.
Current director Denise Pouncy Hannah,
thanked all of the mentors for a job well done.
The HOSTS program pairs mentors with stu-
dents for a 30 minute session each week. Mentors
are provided material to work with the student in
a structured environment.
Gadsden County school superintendent
Reginald James praised the volunteer mentors for
their work and said that he, too, mentored a child
at St. John Elementary School each week.

Gretna Mayor Helen Franks
was ready Tuesday night to. get
the growth ball rolling.
"We are in a position to start
things growing," Franks said.
Franks was referring to the
new water interconnect with the
City of Quincy.
The interconnect was a pri-
mary step needed in releasing
Gretna's Florida Department of
Environmental Protection's sanc-
tions against the city.
The next step for Gretna will
be an engineering survey
(approved at Tuesday night's
meeting) to determine that the
interconnect will provide the
needed water flow to remove the
sanctions.
Now that the ball is rolling
Franks said, the city needed to
look at planning and zoning


issues.
Franks was not alone in her
rush to get Gretna on the plus side
of progress. The commissioners
agreed unanimous with her and
approved her request to establish
a planning and zoning committee.
The committee will consist of
the five commissioners and will
meet February 21, at 6:30.
The committee will meet,
Franks said, to discuss future
plans for the City of Gretna.
Among those plans Franks
said, were looking at annexing
property into the city.
She said that Gretna had
already been approached by sev-
eral property owners concerning
annexing into the city.
Other issues the committee
would look at Franks said was
deciding what the city will look
like and pushing to clean up the
city.
In other business:


The commission approved
travel expenses for both the city
attorney and the police chief to
conferences.
An agreement with
Optimum Enterprises Inc. for a
comprehensive plan study and
the city was approved by the
commission.
The commission heard" a
report from the city's financial
consultant, Bill Bogan, conceri-
ing the city's past due audits.
Bogan said that the 2002-2003
year's books had been ready
since october, but he had wanted
to do both that year's audit arid
the 2003-2004 audits at the sanie
time.
That has not worked out and
he is requesting that the city's
auditors Watson and Rice cortle
in early March for that audit. '
The 2003-2004 books he said
should be ready in six to eight
weeks

Gadsden County students who want to attend col-
lege but don't have the money will want to make
plans to attend College Goal Sunday, February 19,
from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. at East Gadsden High School.
College Goal Sunday is not just for new college stu-
dents. Returning students can also attend the event to
receive financial aid assistance.
College Goal Sunday is a charitable effort to assist
low-income families receive financial aid or those
who may be the first in the family to attend college.
This is the first year that Florida is participating in
College Goal Sunday and Gadsden County is one of
only 19 counties statewide participating, according to
local coordinator Bill Spires, director of Financial
Aid at Tallahassee Community College and chair of
the Florida College Goal Sunday Steering
Committee.
"We're going to provide parents and students with
all of the information they need from financial aide
experts," Spires said.
The free event is open to families of prospective
college students who need financial aid and assis-
tance completing the financial aid paperwork.
"Financial aid experts, primarily from the state's col-


leges and universities, volunteer their time to help '
families complete the Free Application for Federal
Student Assistance," Spires said. These experts will'
provide one-on-one help in English, Spanish, and
Creole.
"We are targeting students in these counties to .
give them hope for their future and to help them
secure a college education. These are students that
typically fall through the cracks and we want to
change that," Spires said.
Dr. Beverly Sermons, director of Outreach and
Access for the Division of Community Colleges and
Workforce Education agrees. "Many students and
their parents have difficulty applying for these funds'
With College Goal Sunday we are going to make it"
easier by giving them two things. The first is more
information about the availability of millions of dof-
lars in financial aid and second, expert assistance
with filling out the FAFSA to get this money for col!
lege," she said.
Research shows that many families feel they car*t
afford a college education for their children, even
though there are millions of dollars in financial aid,'
available. College Goal Sunday is designed to show
.families that higher education is within their reach.'

finding Roads


By: Byron Spires


Hey, did somebody say I was a grand dad?


A few days ago, the publisher
asked me what I was doing,
with regard to articles, about
Black History Month. I told him
that since I came to work here
20 years ago, I had made an
effort to integrate the history of
Blacks in our community on a
regular basis in the newspaper.
However, since so many peo-,
ple still look at February as the
time when the history of Blacks
gets special attention from com-
mercials by Mclonald's to
daily snipets in our regional
newspaper, maybe I should go
with the flow. A dose of history
never hurt anyone.
; The best place to start is at
he beginning. Celebrating
February Month began with a
man named Carter Godwin
Woodson, a distinguished Black
author, editor, publisher, and
historian. Woodson believed
that Blacks should know their
history if they were going to
participate in the affairs of
America. He felt that there was
an attempt to erase or at least
water-down the history of
Blacks until it all but disap-
peared.
: Woodson was born in, on
December 19,1875 in New
Canton, Buckingham County,
VA. His parents ere formci
slaves. At first his education
wvas limited because his help
was needed on the family farm.
During the early years Woodson
could not attend school the
entire five months school was in
session and he basically taught
himself to read and write.
Because he hungered for an
education, he completed high
school at the age of 25. He went
on to graduate from college and


travelled in Asia and Europe
where he studied at the
Sorbonne University in Paris
before earning a Master's
Degree from the University of
Chicago and a Ph.D from
Harvard University.
He was a prolific writer and
during his lifetime wrote 18
books, 22 periodicals, and
countless newspaper articles.
But at the heart of most of his
writings was his belief that the
history of his people should be
preserved at all cost. He, how-
ever, believed that history was
not just the gathering of facts
from military and political
records. He felt that the social
conditions were also of major
importance.
The social part is what seems
to be missing in a lot of the
information that is widely dis-
tributed. There are a lot of dates
and times of of the births and
deaths of famous people and
their specific contributions. We
all know about the contributions
of Benjamin Banneker and
Sojourner Truth, and Dr.
Charles Drew and others, but
we do not know what was hap-
pening to them or in the society
that mostly affected them when
they were making their mark in
"'hjsrt. ,
For instance, the U.S. Postal
- Service. unveiled the Hattie
McDaniel postage stamp last
week, amidst a lot of fanfare.
McDaniel, some may recall,
was the first Black person to
win an Ocsar for her portrayal
of the housekeeper at Tara in
"Gone With The Wind," an epic
production detailing the events
that occurred before, during,
and after the Civil War, through


the eyes of one woman, Scarlett
O'Hara.
McDaniel's deservedly
earned the recognition for a
brilliant performance. What
happened Monday was just
what Woodson didn't want to
happen. While everyone talked
about McDaniel's accomplish-
ment, it was never mentioned
that she was unable to sit in the
hall with the other winners
because of the color of her skin.
Nor was she invited to any of
the events that always follow
the awards ceremony.
That is the kind of social
information that Woodson
worked so hard to include in the
history of Blacks in the country.
It fueled his desire to preserve
the history of Black Americans
and led him to develop Black
History Week in 1926. It
became Black History Month
much later.
Woodson once said "the
object of historical study is to
arrive at a reasonable interpreta-
tion of the facts. History is more
than political and military
records of peoples and nations.
It must include some descrip-
tion of the social conditions of
the period being studied."
I don't know if it's true but I
read Nomer\ here that W\oodson
often said he hoped the Lime
would come when "Negro ,
History Week" would be unnec-
essary. His wanted all
Americans to willingly recog-
nize the contributions of Black
Americans as a legitimate and
integral part of the history of
this country.
It looks to me like Black
History Month will be around
for a long time.


My first grandchild, Jane
Claire Spires, came into this
world at 10 p.m. Both she
and her mother, Amy, are
doing very well.Of course my
son, Bob, is walking around
about ten feet off the ground.
This is also a new threshold
for him and Amy as well.
They are embarking on a
journey that will take them
across every known emotion
a person can feel as they raise
their child.
The next twenty or so
years will be devoted to mak-
ing sure that Jayne grows up
to be a good and productive
person.
In Jane Claire's (she will
be called by both names I
have been informed) case she
will have two good people
that will do everything in
their power to make sure that
happens.
When I talked to Bob after
Jane Claire was born I could
hear the excitement in his
voice as he told me about the
preceding night's adventures.
I remember that excite-
ment myself on the day Bob
and his sister Cindy were
born. There are really noi .,:
words' todescribe'the'feelings
you experience when you see
your child for the first time.
I know that Bob and Amy
are on top of the world right
now and I'm proud of both of
them.
Over the past few weeks as
the birth of Jane Claire has
neared I have been thinking a
lot about life and where it


leads us. For some reason my
thoughts have drifted back to
my own childhood and grow-
ing up. I've thought about
how the chapters of my life
have fallen into place.
I have always been a
dreamer. I could daydream a
whole day away if I didn't
stay focused on what I need-
ed to be doing.
Growing up when pres-
sures of real life were still
way out in front of me I used
to dream about what my life
might be like. Never in my
wildest dreams did I expect to
be here one day writing about
my grandchild, Jane Claire.
Instead I thought I'd be
some famous movie star or
possibly an astronaut. I was
thinking along much grander
heights for myself. You know
the fantasies of a kid can be
kinda wild and crazy at times.
As you probably have fig-
ured out I didn't make either
of my fantasies a reality.
My life just kind of took a
few turns here and there and
before I knew it I was a
father and another chapter
unfolds.
JrAlovebeing-afatherj,,. .....
Having mytwVct kids has beenir
the greatest thing by far that
has ever happened to me.
Things were not always
peaches and cream for my
kids. They had their share of
blows and thankfully we all
came out on the other side of
our tribulations together. As
my kids grew up I never real-
ly thought a lot about them


being grown and on their own
one day.
You know how it is raising
kids. Take them here, pick
them up from there, feed
them, clothe them, educate
them. A good parent's life
centers around their children.
I feel blessed that I got to
spend a lot of time with my
kids as they were growing up.
Another chapter closes as one
starts anew when one day I
look around and my kids are
now adults and leaving the
nest.
That is not a bad thing in
and of itself, but it is one of
those thresholds that can be
hard to step through.
And now another chapter
begins for me as a grandfa-
ther.
I want to go on record and
say that I sit here writing this
today in full amazement that
life has carried me to the
place where I can have a
grandchild. It never even
crossed my mind when I
would lay in bed at night as a
kid and dream about what the
future may have held for me.
Looking back, I don't
know'if Iwould have been
terrified to know what may
have lay ahead of me or.,
excited at the prospects.
Maybe it is just as well we
don't know what the future
holds for us.
But, one think is for sure,
as I sat this past weekend and
held my grand daughter Jane
Claire for the first time, I am
proud to be a grand daddy.


Put God first


Dear Editor:

For me personally, I don't think of Dr.
King in anyway, without acknowledge-
ment of Jesus. It is, and always been my
belief, that Dr. King was a servant of
Gbd, and was inspired by God to do
Gbd's will. Nothing at all was accom-
plished without God. In other words I
can't consider what Dr. King did without
first acknowledging what the King of
Kings did. Somehow I feel we've lost our
focus on who did what, and placed Dr.
King or acknowledge Dr. King as the
source of present well being. I hear on the
TV, newspaper, etc. things like a state-
ment Oprah said, "I know today that I
wouldn't be where I am, had it not been
for M.L.K." Now really, how can one be
so thoughtless to have received so much
from God herself, to forget, and give Dr.
King the glory. And like Dr. King, in the
life of Oprah Winfrey, I can't help but see
Jesus. I just recently read in the paper
where a citizen said, this man (M.L.K.)
died for me!
Once again I could only think about
that man (Jesus) who really died for me
(us). He won't share his glory with Dr.
King or anyone. I'm afraid we've made
Dr. King an idol, and we ought to know
how God feels about idol worshiping.
Most of us seem to forgotten to mention
Jesus. Dr. King, you or me can't do a
thing in this world without God. It's past
time to acknowledge Him, and give God
his praise (which He's so worthy of). I'm
reminded of a passage from the Bible
where Jesus and his deciple were togeth-


er, and Jesus asked them "whom do men
say that I am." When some gave various
responses; he asked whom do you say I
am.
Everybody, even little kids, (who was-
n't even here during Dr. King's life) have
an opinion of who Dr. King was to them,
and expressing no thought what-so-ever
of who Jesus is in your life. It would be
very interesting to me to see what would
happen, if we all over the U.S. would set
aside a day (like Dr. King as we do) and
have a Jesus parade, march, etc. We get
on one accord on behalf Dr. King and do
like-wise for the King of Kings, and I
mean that literally. Remember, Jesus did
it all on the cross, our freedom, the whole
9 yds., and he did it well before a M.L.K.
Dr. King was that light He let so shine
before men, and we now see His good
works and should glorify our Father (not
King) which is in heaven.

Questions need for lounge

Dear Editor:

I am a very concerned citizen. I have a
very big question to ask the county. The
property located on highway 90 west, that
was once a club (the Horseshoe Lounge) I
see that it is
up in question as to open as a lounge once
again. This area was zoned for the Motel
and Restaurant, from Mr. Peter Patel the
owner.
I see where a couple of people are try-
ing to get it open again for a lounge. The
Motel is a nice place, kept up and all, but
my concern is if it is allowed once again
to re-open as a lounge the neighborhood
will be left to hear the loud noise and pos-
sibly the same as before.
Too many people have been hurt and
killed in that place for it to open again.
Mr. Patel has a nice business right now
where it is used for private parties and
weddings and so on. To open this as a
lounge and bar again will destroy the area


once again. Mr. Patel
we the community beg you to stop this
before our area is once again destroyed
with the loud noise and possible harm to
the people.
There is plenty of property vacant for
these people to apply for a business else-
where in the county. Don't we have
enough bars open as it is now in our area.
You should ask the community around
the Horseshoe, families that live in the
area what they think before you allow
another lounge bar to open in the build-
ing. If I am not mistaken it is zoned for
motel and restaurant only not a
bar/lounge.
Would not it have to go in front of the
board of county commissioners at a meet-
ing to get this re-zoned in the first place?
Again we are asking you Mr.Patel to look
out for the families that have homes in the
area and how long we have been in the
area first before you agree to rent your
area for a bar/lounge to anyone.
We don't want another Bar /Lounge in
the area surely not the Horseshoe Lounge.

Upset at Deer Ridge

Dear Editor:

In March of 2005 I moved into a new
subdivision in Havana,. Deer Ridge
Estates. This was the fulfillment of the
"American dream", my very first home.
Deer Ridge Estates is a subdivision
where, the County, State, and Federal
agencies in place to insure developers
adhere to the laws protecting it's citizens,
have failed.
The road system in Deer Rige is fail-
ing.
The Stormwater Management System,
and drainage infrastructure is failing.
Of the 17 homes currently occupied, 5
have failed septic systems and 1 is
pumped out bi-monthly. This situation
should never had been allowed to occur.
That being said. In April of 2005 the
County, DEP, EPA, and DOH, after com-


plaints from residents, actually visited
Deer Ridge to view the situation the
home owners were living in.
This resulted in the County, DEP, and
EPA taking action. DOH has yet to
step up to the plate to the best of my
knowledge.
While I am pleased with the
Government agencies taking some action,
I am afraid that because the amount of
time passed before they became involved,
and legal issues, Deer Ridge will never be
made whole.
My issues is with the process, the pro-
cedures, and the legal loop holes, not the
individuals within those agencies.
It is with this in mind that I wish to
thank the County Commison, led by
Commissioner Dixon, my own
Commissioner Eugene Lamb, the County
Manager Marion Brown, the County
Growth Management Director Bill
McCord, and the County attorneys
Thorton Williams and Paul Sexton, they
have all been exemplary in their effort to
provide relief to the residents of Deer
Ridge.
To the developers and the procedures
which allowed Deer Ridge to be in the


situation it is I say shame on you. To
those individuals mentioned above I say ,
Thank You!
GadsdenCounty desperately needs
your support with the stampede of new
development arriving, and we are lucky to
have you on board.

Nestled in the
back is the list and H.M. Butler and his wife, Janice, spend a few minutes looking at the blue
pictures of all those book that traces Butler's 12th Infantry Regiment's exploits in World War


men who served with Two.
the 12th. They were
from all over the country: a sea
of young faces, 18-, 19- and 20-
year-olds cover each page.
It has been a little over 60
years since the war ended. As
time moves forward many of
those who lived through those
days are slowly slipping away
from us. With them are memo-
ries of one of our finest hours.
A time some say that the great,
est generation stepped up to the
plate and served their country.
This is the story of one of
those men from here in Gadsden
County:' .: *-:,
Henry M. Butler, now 80,
was one of those bright faces
with a kid smile that makes you
realize how young these men
were when they were asked to
go to war for their country.
This is his story:
H.M., as his friends and fam-
ily know him, entered the serv-
ice at 19. He was inducted at
Camp Blanding in August 1944.
Instead of the usual 16 weeks of
training Butler would get an
expedited infantry training and
be out in 12 weeks. He would
finish his training in Fort
Meade, Maryland. It would be
in Fort Meade, Butler would
remember receiving all of his
equipment, including his M-1I
rifle.
His entering the Army coin-
icided with the Allied force's
push into the Hurtgen Forest on
Germany's doorstep.
Replacements were needed
soon and it would cut his train-
Jing by four weeks
Called Hurtgen's Bloody
|Forest, the 12th suffered consid-
erable losses in the battle of the
Hurtgen Forest. It is said'that it
;was the most grueling battle of
the war between D-Day and V-E


Butler arrived in Metz
France at about the same time
that the famous "Battle of the
Bulge" started.
He was assigned to the 12th
Infantry Regiment Company F.
Butler was with the 12th
when it entered Germany at the
Siegfried Line. The weather was
horrendous with freezing rain
and snow. The 12th had to cross
open fields in knee deep snow.
The 12th plowed ahead into
Germany ,taking such towns uas
Irern and Schwei'len':; '
Shortly afterthose battles the
12th was relieved for some
much needed rest in Verriere de


Portieux, France. Then it was
back on the path to roust the
Germans. The regiment moved
forward into Germany on March
21, crossing the Rhine River at
Worms on March 30. By April 4
the regiment had turned south
toward the Alps.
It was in this push that Butler
received his Bronze Star Medal.
Near the city of Ellerbach,
Germany, on April 26, Butler
and his platoon would come
under heavy fire from a German
machine gun nest. -:. .,

Butler took the B.A.R. from
the man and crawled out in
front of the platoon to gain a
better view of the machine gun.
By doing this he came under
direct fire from the machine
gun. Through his heroic act
Butler was able to destroy the
machine gun nest.
But that was not where his
heroism would end. He then
crawled further forward and
placed a murderous fire on
enemy riflemen who had been
delaying the advance of an adja-
cent platoon..
Butler's citation reads, "With
the assistance of Private
Butler's automatic rifle fire, the
company was able to drive the
enemy from the area. Private
Butler's courageous actions and
unswerving devotion to duty
reflect great credit upon himself
and the military service."
Approved by command of
Major General Hays.
During his travels, he met
two other Gadsden Countians:


Malcolm Perkins and Mac
Blount. Both men were from the
Providence area. They were two
of the eleven men from that area
who died serving their country.
The war ended in May of
1945 and Butler stayed in serv-
ice until October 1946.
He came back to Gadsden
County and then went on to
Chipola Junior College.
Butler then spent the next 23
years raising shade tobacco,
corn, soybeans and beef cattle.
After farming, Butler joined
the extension service and retired
in 1990. Butler has been a
director of the Gadsden County
Farm Bureau and is a member
of the First Baptist Church in
Quincy.
He married Janice Betts in
1952 and the couple has three
children and five grandchildren.
As a reminder of his heroism
of 60 years ago. US
Represenitive Allen Boyd had

THE VILL.AINOUJS NAME OF I4ERD~


The Perfect
Church
Paul F. Joyner, Ph.D.

People are sometimes prone to
paint Christians as a collection
of perfect people. They criticize
every moral or personal failure
of church


churches are
"full of tiyp-
ocrites" and
clear evi-
dence.that r
the churches
are not selec-
tive enough -
in who they g f
allow to
become members.
One outstanding British pastor
put the matter into proper per-
spective. "It should be written
over the door of every church
building, just as it must be writ-
ten over the gates of heaven,
'For Sinners Only'." Most
churches understand themselves
to be societies of forgiven sin-
ners. They understand that they
are spiritual hospitals to minis-
ter to the spirit.
Jesus underlined the most
important facet of His ministry
when He declared that He had
come "to seek and to save that
which is lost." In His stories
about the lost sheep, the lost
coin, and the lost son He
emphasized that God's great
concern is rescuing the lost.
Heaven's greatest joy is when
one that has been lost is found.
In the story of the "Prodigal
Son" we are reminded that
God's only rush is to redeem the
son who has wandered away.
When this much emphasis is
given in the New Testament to
God's concern for the spiritually
sick, you wonder where the idea
came from that churches are a
collection of people who have
worked their way to perfection.
Churches are societies of the
forgiven and forgiving who are
gradually being made righteous
by a God who has declared
them righteous.
Jesus was invited into the
home of a noted Pharisee.
Sometime during the evening
meal a woman who was a sinner
came into the dining room and
begin to anoint the feet of Jesus
with valuable ointment. It was
not uncommon for people to
slip into banquets when noted
personalities were the guests of
honor. The Pharisees prided
themselves on their personal
goodness.They avoided every
encounter with anyone of ques-
tionable reputation.
This Pharisee immediately
concluded that Jesus could not
have been a prophet. If He were
a prophet He would have known
the character of this woman and
expelled her from the house. No
sooner had Simon, the Pharisee,
thought this than Jesus chal-


lenged him. He told the story of
two men who owed debts to a
money lender. Neither could pay
the bill. Rather than having
them imprisoned the money
lender forgave both their debts.
One man owed ten times as-
much as the other. Jesus asked
which one would appreciate
being forgiven the more. The
Pharisee concluded that the one
would be more grateful who had
been forgiven the greater
amount. Jesus took that opportu-
nity to remind this man. that the
sinful'woman .i- nicIC,
expressing her i .iiAilded becau.ie-
she had been forgiven a great
debt by God.
The reason a perfect church
does not exist is simple. God
wants us to have churches that
are fellowships of the forgiven
who in turn can be forgiving.
We invite you to visit us at the
Berean.Church just south of the
old high school building in
Chattahoochee.

Richardson arrested


on drug charges


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

At 6:30 a.m. last Friday morn-
ing, members of the Gadsden
County Sheriff's Office and the
Florida Department of Law
Enforcement served a search
warrant at a trailer on Frank
Jackson Road in the Friendship
Community. They were looking
for 31-year-old Juan Richardson.
"When we got there he was in
bed. He just rolled out and didn't
give us any problems," said Sgt.
Jim Corder of the GCSO nar-
cotics task force. Under the mat-
tress, however, was a loaded .38-
caliber handgun..The gun had
been reported stolen in 1999 to
the Quincy Police Department.
It had taken the task force three
months and a number of under-
cover crack cocaine drug buys
from Richardson before they
could arrest him. During the
early morning search, members
of the task force found powder
cocaine and marijuana as well as
scales and baggies as used for
distribution.
"The success of this investiga-
tion should be credited to the
concerned residents of the
Friendship Community who
reported suspicious activity to
the drug unit," Corder said.
Richardson was charged with
two counts each of sale and pos-
session with intent to distribute
cocaine and marijuana and pos-
session of a firearm by a convict-
ed felon. He is currently in the
county jail on $146,000 bond.
Richardson, also known as
Tony Richardson and Juan
Carlos Antonio Richardson, was
released from jail on another
case involving the sale, manu-
facture, and delivery of cocaine
in June of 2004.
Corder said the investigation is
ongoing and more arrests are


Juan "Tony" Richardson

expected. Anyone with informa-
tion regarding suspicious or drug
activity is asked to call Corder at
875-8847 or 395-4138.

TCC gets gift for health education center
Tallahassee Community College has received a $2 million gift, the largest, non-corporate individ-
ual gift in the college's history. Contributed by the Ghazvini family, this gift will enable TCC to
enhance its soon-to-be-built Center for Health Education into a state-of-the-art training facility. As
a result of the gift, the new 65,000-square-foot Center for Health Education will feature cutting-
edge technology, such as a simulated patient care unit with highly sophisticated equipment that will
give students valuable practice prior to their clinical assignments. The center has the potential to
drastically impact and improve TCC's ability to meet critical shortages of health care profession-
als, while advancing the delivery of regional health care education. Plans include increasing enroll-
ment capacity in TCC's health education programs by nearly 100 percent within the next five years.

O\' Tf.Ae'ac 'Day, which occurs every February 14th, is a holiday that celebrates love in the United States and in many other counties around the world Other countries
include England and France. This day's origins are attributed to a Catholic priest, whom we know today only as Valentine. Valentine lived in the era of the Roman Empire
under Emperor Claudius. Claudius frowned upon marriage and hence banned it. Priest Valentine disobeyed the emperor's orders and married couples anyways. Valentine
was murdered on January 14th for violating the law. The priest was canonized into sainthood for his contributions to the Institution of marriage. Beginning in the late middle
ages, what we know as Valentine's Day was born. Catholics feasts in celebration of the martyred loiest began the traditional celebration of love
tdi only did Saint Valentine contribute to the creation of Valentine's Day. Many cultures have attributed the middle of February with celebrations of love. Ancient Athenians
celebrated the marriage of Hera and Zeus during what is now mid-February The Ancient Romans also had a festival on the 15th day of February,.Lupercalia, that was
associated with the celebration of love, Lupercus was the Roman god of fertility. Valentine's Day has also been attributed to the teachings of Valeftinius, a Chnsban
philosopher from Rome. Not only did the ancients celebrate love in February. Some believe the Roman roots of Valentine's Day are merely myths, and attribute the true
origin of the day to the traditional mating of doves on February 14th in England and France in the 14th century. No matter what the true origins of Valentine's Day are, it is
one of the most popular holidays in today's society
day traditions for Valentine's Day included romantic dinners, giving flowers, cards, chocolates, and for many couples even getting married has even become quite
popular. The holiday is so popular in the United States that almost 200 million Valentine's Day cards are sold each year for the February holiday. Many children participate in
exchanging cards during classroom parties in celebration of the day. Florists report that the only day that has more rose orders than Valentine's Day is the popular Mother's
Day holiday. So take time this February 14th to tell someone you love that you are thinking of them!l a 4B ., ,A, *

The ever so popular conversation candies
were invented in the 1860's by a man named
4 .Daniel Chase. Chase was the brother of Oliver
Chase, the founder of the New England Confectionary
Company, or NECCO. Originally the candies were
many different shapes, such as shells, horseshoes, even
watches and baseballs. In 1900 the candies got their
famous heart shape! Eight billion candy hearts are made a
S. year for the Valentine's holiday, with each year bringing
new sayings to the hearts!

was upset by Pensacola High in the district finals.
Washington coaches Janis and Ronnie Bond have won
721 career games, a married couple who hold the state
record for most career wins in girls basketball. They
have coached the Pensacola Washington Lady Cats for
31 seasons now.
West Gadsden lost their district final game in
Wewahitchka to Port St. Joe 78-71. Tyeshia Battles
hit for .31 points and Chelsea McMillan scored 24
points but Port St. Joe's Gekeela Clemmonsled all
scorers with 36 points. West Gadsden led 42-35 at the
half and also led 57-48 going into the fourth quarter
but a thirty point fourth quarter effort by the Sharks
propelled them to the championship. The loss put the
Panthers on the road to Blountstown on Thursday
night to take on the District 3 winner.
The Munroe Lady Cats won't be in the playoff pic-
ture for the first time in three years. Despite an
inspired win over John Paul II in the quarterfinals, the
Lady Cats were dropped hard by FAMU in the semi-
finals in the Class A tournament held at FAMU.
Munroe split with John Paul during the regular season
but outshot, out rebounded and outscored them
Tuesday night for a 46-33 win. The Lady Cats were
led by Malorie McKinnon's 16 point performance and
the rebounding duo of Crystal Wade and Julia Bates.
Thursday night the team collapsed under the relentless
full court pressure of the Rattlerettes and lost 74-20.
Their season ended at 7-15.

construction near Interstate 10
and State Road 267. The coun-
ty's staff has been working with
Talquin and the City of Quincy
to get central sewer and water to
the hotels by the targeted open-
ing date of July 1, 2006. Because
of snags and delays that were not
anyone's fault, there isn't enough
time to build the sewer lines.
Hotel owners say they must
install a temporary septic tank
system if they are to meet the
deadlines. If they don't meet the
deadlines, they could lose their
franchise and could lose money
to lenders.
A temporary septic system will
cost the owners between $50,000
dollars and $100,000 dollars
each to install. The owners asked
the county to abate any property
taxes until the cost of installing a
temporary is covered. "That
could be up to three or four
years," advised the county's
attorney, Thornton Williams.
Commissioners offered to pay
half the cost and the hotel own-
ers could pay the other half. "We
have partners and we cannot say
yes or no here tonight. We have
to speak with them," said Peter
Patel.
Commissioners agreed to delay
any decision until the partners in
the hotel decide whether to
accept or reject the county's
offer.

connect would be the beginning of
other collaborative efforts by the
two cities.
Taylor said added that Quincy
would be working with Gretna on
other ventures. Taylor said that
Quincy would be looking at shar-
ing such things as grant writers, and
possibly a joint effort with the
recreation department.
Representative Curtis
Richardson, D-Quincy, who was
instrumental in helping Gretna
receive grant and loan money for
the interconnect said that this was
the first project that he worked on
after being elected to the Florida
House of Representatives.
Cooperation between the two
cities, Richardson said, was some-
thing he was proud to see begin to
take shape. That cooperation he
said would help to improve the life


of all of the. citizens of both com-
Smunities.
Interim Gretna city manager
Diane Formman has been involved
in the final stages of the agreement
between the two cities. "I hope this
will be a stepping stone for
Gretna," Formman said.
Quincy city manager Willie Earl
Banks gave the involvement of
Richardson and Senator Al Lawson
as a major factor in both Quincy's
new wells in Mt. Pleasant and the
eventual interconnect with Gretna.
The interconnect is intended to
help remove sanctions by the
FDEP, which is in its fourth year,
after two of the cities four wells
failed.
The sanction stopped any new
connections to the city's water sys-
tem until a new additional water
source was found.
The interconnect was financed by
grants and loans provided through
the FDEP. The cost of the intercon-
nect was $513,000.

Free Medicare Part D drug seminar


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

Are the new drug benefits con-
fusing you? Get the answers today
at the National Guard Armory
from 10 a.m. to 12 noon and from
1 p.m. to 3 p.m. The armory is
located at the comer of Pat Thomas
Parkway and Joe Adams Road,
across from Wal-Mart.
The free program is called
"Know Your Options with
Medicare Part D" and will address
concerns and questions citizens
have about free medication
options, lowered co-pays, and
insurance education.
"There will be insurance com-
panies present, including Capital
Health Plan, Humana, Universal


HealthCare, and Blue Cross and
Blue Shield of Florida. Other par-
ticipants include the SHINE
Network, which is a Department of
Elderly Affairs network that
addresses the insurance needs of
the elderly population," said
Tymeisha Baker of the Gadsden
County Health Council's PAMS
Program.
She said the Social Security
Administration will talk about a
service called Extra Help which
pays for beneficiaries' co-pays,
deductibles, and premiums.
As of this year, Medicare con-
sists of four parts:
Part A-Hospital Insurance
Part B-Supplementary Medical
Insurance
Part C-Medicare+Choice or the


Medicare Advantage program
formed by the Balance Budget Act
of 1997
Part D-Medicare Prescription
Drug, Improvement, and
Modernization Act of 2003
With approximately 7,400
Medicare beneficiaries in the coun-
ty, Baker says that the new pro-
gram will impact many people.
"This program can potentially pro-
vide drug benefits for more than
5,000 residents who are 65 or older
and more than 1,500 who are dis-
abled and end-stage renal disease.
"We want people to come and
learn about insurance coverage,
prescription plans, free medication
distribution, Social Security bene-
fits. Lunch will be provided,"
Baker said.

,.22 Gadsden County Times February 9, 2006


IMidway

Continued from Page 1

The problem is the number of new residents moving
into the City of Midway. A number of residents were con-
cerned that as the city grew the long-time residents of
Midway would lose control of the city.
Garrett Walker said that the city had 1300 undeveloped
parcels now and that those were already about sold out.
"Midway won't have any control," Walker said about
Midway continuing to add new property to the city.
"See that board," he said to Murdaugh, "they're going
to change." Midway's board is all Black.
Walker said that as Midway grew and new people con-
tinued to move in, the community he and others grew up
in would change, something he did not want to see.
Although Mayor Delores Madison had asked earlier in
the meeting that people wanting to speak sign in, after the
first two or three spoke it became a free-for-all of speak-
ers with little continuity to the process.
Murdaugh was able to explain that TCC's board of
directors had agreed on the annexation into the city and
he had been sent to plead their case.
The need for an address change, Murdaugh said, was
the driving force behind the request. He stated that the
academy's address, which is listed as an Havana address,
was confusing to new cadets coming to the academy.
When a comment was made that all he needed to do
was request an address change, Murdaugh said that he
had contacted the regional postmaster in Jacksonville and
was told the address could not be changed.
Murdaugh said that the annexation had nothing to do
with leaving the county. He said that the academy found
itself more in line with the City of Midway than with the
City of Havana.
The academy, he said, had a 30 year history with
Gadsden County and would continue to work with the
county regardless of the outcome of the annexation.
Many in the audience did not believe Murdaugh's com-
ment about the address change, and a verbal rumble of
disagreement reverberated in the room.
Questions were asked about what the future plans were
for the academy. Murdaugh said that there was a long
term master plan, but did not elaborate on future plans.
As a note to the discussion, the academy as a state
agency will not pay property taxes. Murdaugh did say
that the academy did have an economic impact based on
local spending and cadet and trainee spending. .
A recently completed large dormitory on the property
was built to house the cadets and students that are at the
facility for training. The academy is a law enforcement
training facility for many state agencies and is used by
both federal and local law enforcement agencies as well.
The academy is also a port for one of the county's heli-
copter emergency ambulance services.
Some discussion did filter through concerning the
process of annexation of the academy. Midway's growth
director Roosevelt Morris explained that the property
adjoins Midway's city limits along County Road 268
(High Bridge Road) across Interstate 10. In order to
annex property into the city it must touch already existing
city property.
Much of the discussion about the annexation centered
around the possibility that once the academy was
annexed into the city more property would be forthcom-
ing.
Some residents at the meeting felt the annexation would
allow property along US 90 from the current city limits to
the academy to be annexed into the city. Hammock Creek
Business Park lies within those boundaries as do several
large parcels of undeveloped land.
A memo from Paul Piller to the city council members
about the annexation stated that the TCC board of
Trustees had met on Tuesday, January 17, 2006 and
authorized its president to send a letter to the city of
Midwayrequesting annexation.
The memo stated: "As you are aware, we have been


meeting with Dr. Bill Law, president of Tallahassee
Community College and his staff, for over a year on vol-
untarily annexing the Pat Thomas Law Enforcement
Academy property into the City of Midway." The memo
further stated that a second ordinance would be needed
establishing a new use/zoning category called
"TCC/Institutional" for the property.
Midway residents were not the only ones who attended
the meeting.
Gadsden County Commissioners Chairman Ed Dixon,
Commissioner Brenda Holt and Commissioner Eugene
lamb were present. Neither Holt or Lamb spoke.
However Dixon spoke to the board concerning the
commissioners moratorium on subdivisions in the coun-
ty. During the time that Dixon spoke the audience
remained reasonably silent.
Dixon explained to the board that he would like to see
Midway hold any annexation until the moratorium was
over.
"I am a friend of Midway," Dixon said about his rela-
tionship with the city.
Dixon said he was not opposed to the annexation, but
felt that the county needed time to "get a hold of what
Gadsden County looks like".
Although the county's moratorium did not directly spec-
ify commercial or business property, Dixon asked that the
county's wishes be considered for six months on the
academy. His problem he said was the large number of
subdivisions coming on line with septic tanks.
This annexation he surmised would lead to other annex-
ations. 4
"We don't want septic tanks and package plants," Dixon
said.
He asked the Midway council about the infrastructure
of the city. At some point, he said, the city was going to
have to provide services and asked how the city is going
to pay for it.
Dixon referred to the city's plan about annexation with
the county to be in effect by 1992. He said there is no
plan, adding that now the plan's effective date has been
pushed out until 2014.
The move by TCC to choose Midway did not surprise
him, Dixon said. He said that developers did not want to
submit to the county's scrutiny.
Dixon said that if the city delayed annexing the acade-
* my by six months nothing is going to change.
"They're an educational facility," Dixon said.
Council member James Hinson agreed that the impact
of the annexation could have long term affects. "We are
concerned," Hinson said.
Dixon was asked to comment on one of the questions
that had earlier been directed at one of the council mem-
bers. He said that he would not interfere with the
council's concerns and declined to get involved.
During the confusion of outburst that followed, a
motion was made to close the meeting. Madison said that
all of the items still on the agenda would be tabled until
the March meeting.
The meeting ended with no decision or further discus-
sion.
In other business, before the annexation question:
The board heard a report from Mark Payne, represent-
ing James Moore and Company, Midway's audit firm.
Payne said that the audit was conpleted-ahd 'that' the'-
city's audit provided a "good overview," of the city's
finances.
He said that there were "no findings in your audit," and
that there were "no material weaknesses."
The commission heard from Corey Alston, represent-
ing Foundation One, an organization that helps low
income residents find homes. Alston said that the founda-
tion was working with Lamb's Temple on property held
by the church and was still working on processing the
four lots belonging to the City of Midway.
Alston had a complaint concerning a request by the city
attorney for a personal financial statement. The council
agreed with Alston that a letter of credit from the bank for
the value of the property would be sufficient.

24 Gadsden County Times February 9, 2006


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(,, bes, price
*.Having to comep wfLith $2Q00 to $3000
for a down payment, taxes, title and tag


*Paying someone a $5000 $6000 profit on
a $10,000 automobile.
Here's what we've done at Direct
Automotive Wholesale:
*All vehicles are priced at the "Loanfi
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 on4the 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!
