lQuincy's

financial

news is

good

by BYRON SPIRES
Times Staff Writer
Quincy commissioners heard
some good news for a change
Tuesday night.
Interim city finance director
Christie Joyner said the city had
made two payments on the
$750,000 Capital City note. The
balance on the note she said had
dropped to $550,000.
The city commissioners
approved borrowing the
$750,000 in October to ease the
city's financial crunch when it
was determined the former
finance director had paid all the
city's bills. It was explained at
the time that the city did not
have the money to pay the bills
at the time and the city was then
thrown into a cash flow problem.
A plan to work the city out of
the crunch was devised that
included borrowing the $750,000
and delaying payments on a
Progress Energy bill owed by the
city.
Last month Joyner asked the
commission for permission to
approach Capital City Bank
about extending the note until
the end of the fiscal year
(September). The commission
approved the request.
More good news came when
Joyner said the bank had agreed
to the extension.
When asked how much more it
would cost the city to extend the
note through September, Joyner
said the figure would be about
$12,000. She added, however,
that the note may be paid off
before that time.
In other business:
The commissioners approved
an ordinance providing
creditable time for members bf
the police officers and
firefighter's supplementary
retirement fund. The fund has
come under the microscope
during litigation between the city
and an undisclosed plaintiff. The
problem centered around time
off due to a leave of absence.
The ordinance said in part that,

"We're on track for another record-set-

County Sheriff Morris Young, Monday
morning following three traffic fatalities in
the county, occurring Thursday, Friday,

Young said.
According to a report released by the

Sept. 9 Like a popular television show, Gadsden
2005 County has its own version of "Missing"
without a trace.
"We just don't know what happened to
Larry Jones these people. They left and loved ones have
not heard from them since. It's baffling to us
and we need to find them," said Inv. Shelton
Nov. 9, Turner of the Gadsden Conity Sitcnit"s
2000 Office. When you see him, lie often has a
folder with him with photos and histories of
the missing.
Bobbi Jean "We have our share of missing persons.
Tew Last year we had 17 cases but I was able to
clear them all up, except these five, with
phone calls. What happens is people come
April 27 back in a few days and the families forget to
2005 call to tell us they're back," Turner said.
Hundreds of thousands of Americans

stress or a disappointment, some have
Parks personal and relationship issues, some have
financial problems, others have mental health

2001 foul play.
"Whatever it is, these are open cases, and I


want to find the answers," he said. By
comparison to other counties our size, five is
not a large number. He said Gadsden
County's missing often just go to Tallahassee
for a while or to Liberty County. "One man
was just fed up with is family bugging him
that he just went to Tallahassee and checked
himself in to the hospital last year," Turner
said, adding, "they reported him missing but
he showed up about a week later."
One of the most intriguing cases is that of
Larry Jones. He was last seen on Nov. 9,
2000 but no one reported him missing until
Dec. 11, 2000, nearly a month later. Then it
was Jones' cousin, Lt. Henry Miller an officer


at the Gadsden County Jail, who finally filed
a report.
"It's not unusual for people to go missing
for that length of time, especially if they don't
live with a close relative," Turner said.
According to a report completed and filed
with the Gadsden County Sheriff's Office at
the time Jones disappeared, the 49-year-old
was living with a woman named Mary Hines
in the Dogtown area (off the Attapulgus
Highway) before the two allegedly left
Florida and moved to Grady County, GA.

Medicare Part D


'It's still very confusing'


250 show up to get

answers about new
Medicare drug act
by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
Carol Packowski is 67 years old and not in the
best of health. She has trouble breathing sometimes
and several other medical problems. She has been
hearing about Medicare Part D for several months
now, but like a lot of people she was confused
about the benefits and even more confused about
things like gaps in coverage, monthly premium
costs, yearly deductibles and various co-payments.
She worried that on her limited and fixed income,
could she even afford it.
She and about 250 elderly and disabled people
attended "Prescription Assistance Day: Know Your
Options with Medicare Part D", presented by the


Gadsden Community Health Council at the
National Guard Armory last Thursday. The intent
was to inform the elderly and disabled about
insurance coverage, prescription plans, free
medication and distribution, and social security
benefits.
All of the right people were there, a few walked
away still searching for answers.
"This is still very confusing," Packowski said,
after a morning of listening to pharmacists,
insurance representatives, Social Security
representatives, and local health care service
providers, talk about the plan and its benefits.
"It (the session) was a little bit of help. When I
worked, I was on a free plan. Now, there have been
times recently when I couldn't pay for the medicine
that goes into my breathing machine," she said.
Her hope Thursday was that she would leave the
meeting with a prescription plan that works for her.
"At least I'll be able to get my medicine for a small
amount of money," she said. With only $800 per
month to live on, she worried about how she was
going to pay a mortgage and still purchase her

GCI inmates at work with their service dog "trainees" who are learning to help others at inmates' hands


Gone to the dogs


GCI program teams inmates with service dogs


by BYRON SPIRES
Times Staff Writer
Gadsden Correctional Institution, a women's
facility on State Road 12 west of Quincy, is not the
most likely of dog training facilities. Behind the
closed gates and razor wire of the institution, a
small miracle is happening.
Living among the 1100 or so female inmates are
seven puppies ranging in age from three to six
months old. The puppies are being trained for a life
of service.
These puppies are a part of two voluntary puppy
raising programs for Canine Companion for
Independence and Auburn University's Canine
Detection Research underway at GCI. The pups are
learning to help others, and some even to save lives.
Each puppy is being trained by a crew of female
inmates in basic commands and most especially in
how to be a puppy. They get petted and loved a lot,
in addition to their daily ritual of come, sit and
shake hands.
Their surrogate mothers want them to succeed at


their appointed tasks and are working hard to see
that the training is the best that they can provide.
"I want my dog to succeed in life. I want him to
be the best he can be and represent this program
well," Christine Joines, one of the trainers said
about her puppy.
One day these puppies will take their rightful
places alongside their human partners to use their
special training. Their future may be as the eyes and
hands of a disabled person or they may one day
sniff out the bomb that could have killed hundreds
or even thousands.
This is the first of such programs at GCI, and as
for these women who are working with the puppies,
this is the beginning of What they hope is a long and
fruitful relationship.
"This has been a good program for the women. It
has been a life changing experience for them,"
Robin Conrad, recreation supervisor and supervisor
of the puppy program said.
The women who work with the puppies agree.
"This is a way to make up for some of life's

Progress Energy's switching station approved by P and Z


by BYRON SPIRES
Times Staff Writer

Progress Energy's switching
station on Atwater Road, one of
the more controversial items
before the Gadsden County
Planning Zoning Board in the
last few years, was approved
without incident last week.
The switching station will be
located on 4.96 acres of land
directly across the Atwater
Road from a current Talquin
Electric substation. The
property was acquired from St.
Joe Land Company
The unanimous vote to
approve the conceptual/ .
preliminary plat sets into
motion the next step in the
process for Progress Energy to
build the electric switching
station.
Doug Hall, representing
Progress Energy, said that the
station was needed to connect
the new 115,000 volt line that is
currently under construction to
the main line (115k) now
running between Quincy and
Chattahoochee.
The switching station Hall
said was not a step down (to
drop the amount of voltage for
local usage). He said the line
would be used as a "T"
cQnnector,-.tying the. two 115K
lines together. Once the
switching station is in place
electricity could be diverted
along either line. He gave the


Doug Hall, representing Progress Energy, speaks to
the board about the proposed 115k switching station.

example of there being a
problem between Atwater Road
and Chattahoochee. He said
that instead of the entire line
being down, Progress could
divert the electricity at the
switching station keeping


Quincy with electricity.
Hall said that Progress
Energy had completed or was
completing all of the needed
permits to build the line. He
added that the issue of the
county's involvement with the


power line had been decided in
court and that Progress was
now in the process of building
the line.
The 115K power line has
drawn a lot of attention from
residents that live along the
right-of-way. The power line
will run along Atwater Road
south of the switching station to
the A and N Railroad where it
will follow the RR track right-
of-way through Greensboro.
The line will continue along the
RR track to another switching
station in Liberty County, near
Hosford.
Hall's reference to the court
case involved the county
passing an ordinance allowing
them to have control of the
approval of the right-of way.
That issue did not hold up in
court.
Progress Energy's stand had
been that the county had no
jurisdiction over power lines.
One of only two residents
present at the board meeting,
Marion Lasley asked about the
notification of the pending
request.
Growth management
director Bill McCord said that
property owners within 1000
feet of the request had been
notified.
The approval stipulated a
clearance letter from the State
Historical Resources Division;
a new entrance to the property
500 feet south of the 4.96 acre


plot which will allow St. Joe a
new access to their property;
and shrubbery be placed where
any clear cutting was done
along the required buffer to
connect the switching station to
the power lines.
In other business:
The board approved a
conceptual/ preliminary site
plan for West Gadsden High
School.
The new school will be located
on 62.09 acres of land at the
corner of State Highway 12 and
Providence Road directly
across the road from the current
WGHS. The property is
adjacent to the city limits of
Greensboro and will be
providing the new school with
water.
The old school building
would become Greensboro
Elementary according to
Gadsden County School's,
director of facilities, Wayne
Shepard.
Board member John Yerkes
had concerns about the sewage
system the school would be
using. Dan Rutherford,
representing the school board,
said that the current school had
a sewage system. The new
school would connect to the
existing system, which he said
was operating at only 30 to 40
percent of its capacity.
Several members of the P
and Z board had concerns that
the plans did not include a


Quincy's CRA board funding questioned


by BYRON SPIRES
Times Staff Writer
, Questions about whether the
City of Quincy was in
compliance with Florida statues
concerning funding of the
Community Redevelopment
Agency (CRA) were raised at
this month's CRA meeting.
The concerns centered
around the city owing $57,487
for the 2005 tax year which are
due by January 1,2006 to the
CRA.
Quincy commissioners voted
last year to become the CRA
board and met Tuesday night in
that capacity before the regular
city commission meeting. The
board does have a citizens
advisory committee that meets
monthly.
The CRA was created for
the purpose of improving areas
in the city that are in need of
redevelopment.
One project currently
underway by the CRA is the
Tanyard Creek Park and
recreation facilities. The
Tanyard Creek project will
encompass walkways, trails and
sports facilities that will follow
the creek from Crawford Street
across US 90 to near the city's
waste treatment plant.
The CRA is also involved in
downtown projects like the
recent placement of benches
and garbage containers around
the square.


In addition the CRA is in
essence a taxing body and
receives tax money from both
the county and city from
property within its borders. The
county has paid its share.
The current financial crunch
the City of Quincy is
experiencing has put a damper
on its ability to send the funds
to the CRA.
"The longer we wait, the
further we are going to be
behind," Willie Jackson,
chairman of the CRA citizens
advisory board said.
In addition to the current
$57,000, the city owes for back
years as well. The total
mentioned at the CRA board
meeting was in the $253,000
bracket.
The CRA money v. is not in
this year's budget (2005-2006).
Mayor Sherrie Taylor asked
city manager Willie Earl Banks
and the city's finance director,
to look at ways of coming up
with the money in this budget
year.
If not, she said, then it
should be budgeted in the
2006-2007 budget year.
Commissioner Derrick Elias
asked the city's attorney if
finding the money in this years
budget would be necessary.
City attorney Jack McLean said
the city needed to figure out
how to find it in this year's
budget.
CRA committee member


David Watson asked about the
money still owed from the past.
He reminded the board that the
CRA money is under Florida
statute. In addition, Watson
said that the CRA receives
grants from the state as well
and must meet certain state
criteria.
Commissioner Andy Gay
had concerns as well.
"I don't feel comfortable,"
Gay said about the money
owed to the CRA by the city.
He said that he wanted to be
sure that the city was not
violating any Florida statutes
concerning the CRA money.
Elias agreed and said that the
commissioners as the CRA
board must take their
commission hats off. "If
another entity owed us
$253,000," Elias said, "the
board would want their
money."
Taylor thanked the
committee for their work and
asked that dollars in the future
be used for renovating some of
the boarded up homes in the
five districts.
The problem in Quincy, she
said, was that locals could not
afford the $600 to $800
payments of a new home.
No' further action was taken
on the matter. There will be
another meeting in March that
will again address the money
owed to the CRA.


sidewalk to the school (along
SR 12 and Providence Road).
Rutherford said that the
limited resources available to
build the school had been the
reason that no sidewalks were
included. Shepard added,
however, that the the school
board would make every effort
to include sidewalks.
A conceptual plat review
was approved by the board for
Comfort Creek Subdivision
phase 1 and 2. The 471 acre
subdivision is located on
Reynolds Road. The land will
fall under the county's
conservation concept which
allows for 50 percent of the
property to be used as
conservation land. This will
allow walking trails and open
space. The concept will create
up to 94 lots as small as 2 acres
on the Agl property.
McCord informed the
board that a workshop with the
county commissioners and P
and Z board has been set up for
March 14 to discuss issues
concerning new subdivision
requirements. In addition
McCord said that he was
drafting the ordinance that will
change the P and Z Board
meeting dates to the second
Thursday of each month.
The P and Z Board meets as
an advisory board only; all final
decisions are made by the
Gadsden County Board of
Commissioners.

'Langston
Hughes'

speaks
at GAC

There was standing room only
Sunday afternoon at the
Gadsden Arts Center as Bob
Devin Jones portrayed the
famous African-American
author and poet from the period
of the Harlem Renaissance,
Langston Hughes.
Jones deftly commanded the
attention of the audience of
children, teens, middle age and
older with his tales of life in
the r920s and with the reading
of several of Hughes' poems.
JIc'ric.: pcrfi.rn.inc was made,
possible through a state grant

of the hour long, one-man
performance he received a
standing ovation for the way he

county's inspectors are handling that chore.
The county's building inspectors must have
found some more hours in the day, because
six months ago they told the Board of County
Commissioners during budget hearings, that
they were strapped for manpower.
And, the fact remains that Midway does
not have a police department or a fire depart-
ment. In my opinion, it is irresponsible to
continue building houses upon houses and lit-
erally putting people's lives and property in
jeopardy.
I am not against growth in Midway, I love
Midway. Truth be known, I am actually from
Midway. My first school was Midway
Elementary School, so I am not hating on the
City.
All of us want.growth, but what we want is
smart growth. We don't need to go along with
people whose lips drip with honey when they
talk about how great they can make Midway.
Ever tihin- that sounds good isn't good for
you. --
Citizens of Midway need to look a little


Deer Ridge problems
Dear Editor;
I am a resident of the Deer
Ridge Subdivision of which the
article, "County says 'not yet' to
Deer Ridge", appeared in your
1/26/06 issue. T am writing to
both clarify the position I took at
the County Commission
Meeting of 1/24/06, as well as to
"correct" statements which
appeared in the article.
Please understand, this is not
meant to be a complaint of the
accuracy of the article, the infor-
mation available at the time was
quite accurately reported. It is
new information that I am bring-
ing to the table.
Personally, I was taken aback
by the developers request to
"..terminate the pending quasi-
judicial proceedings against
Home Placement, Lifestyles
Development, and Ponsit
Realty, Inc.", based upon the the
attorney stating, in effect, that
DEP had confirmed the storm
water management facility is
now
iri'compliance.
When I spoke at the
Commission Meeting and
expressed my skepticism of this
statement, I only had my person-
al conversations with Michael
Hogan to use as support. I am
enclosing irrefutable evidence
that in fact, the DEP has not
confirmed the storm water facil-
ity is in compliance.
I refer to the January 18,
2006 letter from the developers
attorney, Mr. Theriaque. On
page 1, paragraph 2, line 3, the
Mr.. Theriaque states, "Home
Placement recently received a
letter from Michael Hogan,
Engineer Specialist at the
Florida Department of
EnvironmentalProtection
("DEP"), confirming that the
storm water facility at Deer
Ridge is now in compliance."
The letter referred to (also part
of the documentation package),
dated 12-23-2005 from Michael
Hogan, from which the above
statement was based, contains
the following: paragraph 1, line
6 ...."It appears that the storm
water management system is in
compliance' Note, Theriaque
letter uses the term "confirm-
ing" and the DEP letter uses the
term "appears", in reference to
the SWMF compliance issue.


deeper at who's bringing what to your town.
Someone in Midway needs to sit back and
look at the pros and cons of all of this fast
growth and what it will mean 25, even 50,
years from now.
Are the folks getting rich now going to
care what happens there after they have dug
all of the gold out of the ground and have
gone. I don't think so. They will be long gone
without so much as a "see-ya, wouldn't want
to be ya."
The problems will then be left in the laps
and pocketbooks of someone else. That some-
one else will more than likely be the rest of
the county.
Sheriff Morris Young is already stretched to
"the limit with providing officers to all parts of
the county. Brian Beasley told me just last
week he needs to buy another emergency
vehicle..
The calls to EMS are about 120 over what
they were this time last year. The Health
Department has it's hands full. The Road and
Bridge Department is doing all it can to pave
roads and maintain others. The courts are so
crowded the county needs another courtroom
and more two judges just to keep up.
A a lot more that comes along with growth
and it's not all good either.
So, there is more at play here than Midway
getting a few hundred, maybe a thousand,
new houses built.
What happens in Midway is not going to
stay in Midway. It's going to impact the
entire county and for a lot of people where it
hurts most, in the pocketbook.
While Midway is building and and making
decision tley think will only affect them.
I hope that someone there \\ill hate the com-
mon sense to look at the larger picture.


s1115 uIlMacpancy, iulong wInL
the recent discussions I have had
with Michael Hogan, made me
doubt the veracity of Mr..
Theriaque use of the term "con-
firming'.
On 1-25-2006, I visited
Michael Hogan at his Tallahasse
office to discuss this concern.
Based upon that meeting I can
"confirm" that there are still
unresolved issues with the Deer
Ridge SWMF.
Both letters, one dated 1-13-
2006, and the other dated 1-20-
2006 refute the implication that
DEP is completely satisfied with
the Deer Ridge
SWMF.
In summary, I hesitate to
imply duplicity on part of the
Developer and his Attorney.
This could have been a typo-
graphical error after all. I do not
ave sufficient information, the
moral, or legal right to do so.
I just wanted to present the
latest information I had
obtained.
I have become disenchanted
with ability of the governmental
agencies charged with insuring
developers adhere to the local,
State, and Federal laws
designed to protect an unsus-
pecting public, to fulfill their
charge. The laws are there, but
without enforcement they can
not do much good.
Finally, Gadsden County
Times has covered other aspects
of the problems at Deer Ridge,
and I wish to express my grati-
tude.
So, to the Gadsden County
Times I say thank you for bring-
ing the plight of
the residents of Deer Ridge to
the public forum. We need all
the help and support we can get.

Midway help
Dear Editor
For Thanksgiving and
Christmas the Valdene Family
Foundation continues to show
love and concern for the
Midway's citizens who are seri-
ously deprived and oppressed,
ignored and neglected by their
supposedly care takers (protec-
tors and provides) Because of
this continued pathetic condition
of our original citizens, the
Foundation's heads have contin-
ued to show mercy and loving


LIconcer11 IU1 rus.
Previously money was
placed irn City of Midway offi-
cial's hand, who took credit and
did not mention the donors. Mr.
Valdene called me and asked me
to take the job, I agreed.
The venture has been a con-
tinued success. Every year,
every one who expresses a need
or desire for ham, turkey, hen,
duck and fruit is satisfied. I do
all of the purchasing and scruti-
nizing/coordinating the list of
names, which have been instru-
mental in preventing or lessen-
ing duplications.
The Foundation's members
purchased hundred of dollars of
quality, top brand winter cloth-
ing for girls/boys sizes 5 thru
XL.
A dinner was served by the
city. Many citizens called me
and said even though they were
within a 30 minutes time-frame
5:30-6:00pm (it had been adver-
tised 5:3p-8:00pm) there was
only some scraps left. They
wrote notes and signed their
name to that effect.
They are wondering where
did the money go based on all of
the listed donors on the invita-
tions.
I made arrangements with
Harvey's Deli Manager; to pro-
vide New Year's dinner for
those deprived ones who
brought it to my attention.
Valdene Foundation is so
generous. I never run out of
money. We picked up the tab
for other's boo-boo even though
it was not our doing. It is
because of our compassion and
care for people! I am sadden
because every Council member
has benefited from their dona-
tions and year after year for 8
years, nobody at City Hall men-
tions appreciation to any but the
City Hall donors and no mention
of the largest most dedicated
donor or all. Foundation mem-
bers feel unwelcome. They
once visited our meetings along
with Lake .Yvette's residents,
our city leaders put a stop to
that.
* There's story in the Bible
about 10 lepers. Christ healed
them. Only 1 (one) said thanks,
the others got what they wanted
and took off. The ones did not
say thanks-only got healed of
leprosy; the one who said thanks
was made WHOLE-you do the
math. Another observation: A
cow had a beautiful tail in the
summer when flies were worri-


It has been thirty or so years ago, but
something that happened to me recently
reminded of the experience.
I was a young fellow and didn't know much
about the world and had taken a sales job that
involved a lot of traveling. Over the time that I
worked on the road I ran into a number of
other traveling salesman. We would run up
with each other at different stores and several
times a year we all gathered at trade shows
scattered all over the South.
Being a young fellow I always liked to
listen to all of the older salespeople and their
"road" stories. Those stories ran the gamut of
flat tires in the middle of nowhere or the little
country store that bought the big order.
One in particular has always stuck in my
mind.
It seems that this one fellow had a black
salesman ride with him as they made sales
calls.
As they were working across North Georgia
they stopped in one of those little mountain
foothill counties to call on the store. The two
men entered the store only to be confronted
immediately by the store owner.
He said in no uncertain terms that he did
not want the black man in his store. As a
matter of fact he didn't want either one of the
men in the store, the city or the county. They
were told that if they were not out of the
county with in ten or so minutes they might
not ever leave. Of course they left and never
returned.
A few years later that county made national
headlines for their racist attitudes. A sign at
the county line it seems stated that black
people were not wanted in their county.
That is a terrible thing, but read on.
At the Midway meeting I saw that attitude,
only this time it was reversed.
It was clear, if you were at that meeting that
some in the audience do not want white people
moving into their city.
I can understand people being concerned
about too much change coming at one time,
but to publicly say I don't want 'that" referring
to the two whites at the council table is not
right and I believe may even be illegal.
The context "that" was said in, made it a
racial slur if I have ever heard one. "That"
being used to represent the color or type of a
person is the vengeance of hate.
Hate, is wrong no matter whose mouth it
comes from. The old saying my mother often
used fits this concept the best I think: "Two
wrongs do not make a right."
I was personally offended by the racial


some she swished then away.
Winter came, no flies, she had
her tail cut off. The next sum-
mer think what a problem Ms.
Cow had. Remember: based on
God's word whether you believe
it or not, it is going to happen;
every good and evil deed, every
under-cover plot will be
exposed. It is just a matter of
time!

comments that I heard from the audience. And
there were many. In all of the years I have
been here at the Gadsden County Times I have
never heard such blatant racial remarks. Nor
have I ever felt uncomfortable for my own
safety and the safety of those around me as I
was at that meeting.
We have a problem and it is not going away
by itself.
I understand that there has been a lot of
struggles over the years for Black people in
this country and this county. I also understand
that we are a long way from being perfect.
After Midway's meeting I understand, if
only in a small way, the feeling of being hated
because of my skin color. To say the least it
was extremely disheartening.
This is 2006 isn't it?
Shouldn't we be moving away from this
type of attitude? As a matter of fact let me add
one little note here. I understand that less than
10 percent of the new residents in Midway are
white.
Kind of ironic if you think about it.
At the same time I also understand that
these types of attitudes are entrenched for
some and only God will be able to remove that
kind of hate from a person's heart.
I think Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. said it
best in his "I have a dream speech." The
speech, over 40 years old now, speaks
volumes to the racial struggles of its time.
He speaks of what is to come once the
struggle for freedom subsides and equality
becomes the norm instead of only one-sided.
It is, he said, his player that one day little
Black children and White children will play
together.
But, in the same accord, he understands that
people are human and have human feelings
and that is the context of these remarks.
Although I am only going to quote a short
excerpt of the speech, I think it speaks directly
to the issue at hand.
"But there is something that I must say to
my people, who stand on the warm threshold
which leads into the palace of justice: In the
process of gaining our rightful place, we must
not be guilty of wrongful deeds. Let us not
seek to satisfy our thirst for freedom by
drinking from the cup of bitterness and hatred.
We must forever conduct our struggle on
the high plane of dignity and discipline. We
must not allow our creative protest to
degenerate into physical violence. Again and
again, we must rise to the majestic heights of
meeting physical force with soul force."
Need I say more?


Thanks community

Chattahoochee council concerned

about Crawfish Island access


by BYRON SPIRES
Times Staff Writer
The railroad crossing at the
entrance to Crawfish Island has
the Chattahoochee city council
concerned.
There is only one access to
Crawfish Island, which is along
Crawfish Road. The road
crosses two active railroad
tracks, creating a potential
problem for any emergency
vehicle that may need to reach
the 33 homes on the island if a
train is stopped on the tracks.
An emergency situation is not
the only problem the residents
face.
The low lying area is
surrounded by RR tracks on
one side and creeks on the other
three sides. Crawfish Island
was flooded in 1994 and water
rose to within inches of several
homes in 1998.
City manager Lee Garner
said in a telephone interview
that the city has been working
on ways to create another


access to the area or possibly
helping the residents relocate.
Many of the older residents
Garner said have lived there all
of their lives and are hesitant to
move.
The council asked Garner to
set up a meeting with residents
of Crawfish Island and
Gadsden County's two
legislators, Senator Al Lawson
and Representative Curtis
Richardson. Garner said that
plans were to meet with the
residents in the near future to
set up a date to visit the
legislators in Tallahassee and
discuss possible solutions to the
problem.
In other business:
Garner presented the
council with an update on the
city's natural gas prices. Prices,
he said, were hedged (bought
ahead) in the $9.00 range, but
the city should be prepared to
see those prices increase. The
increases would be dependent
on the cold weather and
especially. on the economic


factors that are currently
driving gas prices up.
Garner briefed the council
about the city failing to obtain a
water sample in December. The
missed water sample generated
residents receiving a
notification from the Florida
Department of Environmental
Protection. DEP automatically
sends out the notices when a
sample is missed. Samples have
been submitted for January and
February, Garner stated and the
city's water supply passed.
Safeguards, Garner said, have
now been installed to insure
that this type of error does not
occur in the future.
Council members asked for
new city limit signs similar to
those used by the City of
Sneads. Among other concerns
the council discussed what
actions could be taken to draw
new business into the city.
Chattahoochee currently has
several downtown buildings
vacant.

The Gadsden County Times February 16,2006 9


Home Discovery's Brian Lamb is 2006

Young Minority Business Person of Year


Home Discovery Real Estate Services
Corporation, the country's leading 2% real estate
commission company, is proud to announce that
Chief Financial Officer Brian Lamb is the recipient
of the Tampa Bay Business Journal's 2006 Young
Minority Business Person of the Year Award.
Each year the Tampa Bay Business Journal
recognizes only the best and brightest minority
business professionals in the seven-county Tampa
Bay region. These dynamic individuals all possess
a strong work ethic and have used their intellect and
passion to establish successful companies, advance
causes and deliver impeccable sales and service, the
magazine said.
For this year's award, nearly 70 business
professionals were nominated amongst five
categories which included business services,
government, manufacturing, non-profit and the
young business person category. Home
Discovery's Chief Technology Officer Zavier
Rodriguez was also a finalist this year in the
Business Services category.
Brian Lamb, 29, became CFO of Home Discovery
in 2004 after a remarkably successful career at
TECO where he became the Director of Financial
Services, the youngest director the company has
had in its 100 year history.
Lamb, who moved from Havana to attend the
University of South Florida in Tampa, notes that he
has four simple rules for success: education,
professional positioning, building personal &
professional relationships and giving back.
"The bottom line is that you can't 'control


Dogs


Continued from Page 2
failures," Maureen Moran, one
of the trainers said about working
with the puppies
The pups will stay at GCI for
about a year where they will
receive some basic training
before they move on to the more
intense training needed to fulfill
their jobs.
The two programs are in their
first trials at the GCI facility, and
so far it is working well for both
the puppies and the women who
are training them.
Canine Companion for
Independence is a non-profit
organization that trains dogs to
be service dogs and skilled
companions for people with'
disabilities. One day these
puppies will be performing
physical task such as pulling a
wheel chair, retrieving dropped
objects, opening doors and
drawers and flipping switches.
Four of the puppies are in the
companion program.
'Three of the puppies are part of"
the Auburn program. Because
dogs can detect concentrations of
an odor as small as one in 100
trillion, far beyond the capability
of operational chemical detection
devices, these puppies may find
themselves among many jobs.
Currently some of the trained
dogs of the program are being
used to detect explosives. Two
teams of the Auburn trained dogs
have been responsible for
recovery of bomb-making
material on two separate
occasions.
Some of the trained dogs may
go on to be used as drug dogs or
for search-and-rescue purposes.
The puppies are at GCI for a
purpose, they will be well trained
and then head to their next
assignment. The puppies are Lab
or Lab/ Golden Retriever mix.
This story does not end with the
training of the puppies. Not only
will these dogs move on to
become an integral part of
society, they are leaving behind
changed lives.
"I wanted to be a part of this
program," Casey West said,
adding, this is a great way for
me to repay my debt to society."
West, who works with Ajax, one
of the Auburn puppies, said that
she had grown up taking in strays
and loved animals. The program
she said had been very
therapeutic for her. "No matter
how bad things get, I wake up in
the morning and see those two
little eyes staring at me ready to
start a new day."
The women live in dorms on
the compound and the puppies
sleep in dog containers at the foot
of bunk beds. The trainers are
paired with each puppy with
several alternates included in the
training program. The women
have other responsibilities in the
institution and share the
responsibility of caring for and
training the puppies.
The puppies were received by
the women when they were
between 8 and 16 weeks old.
"We had a lot of puppy breath
for a while," Moran said about
raising her puppy, Storm.
Both the Companion and
Auburn programs have sent
professional trainers to teach the
women what they should be
doing with the puppies. For the
first few months the Auburn pups
are just allowed to play and chase
balls. Their training starts at
about four months.
The companion puppies are
started young and are expected to
learn basic commands early.
Working with these pufpies has
had an effect on those not in the

Lamb. "If you outline those four things, there is

because you may fail.
Mistakes start small
and add up. Come
clean, it's gonna hurt,
then pick up the pieces
and move on," Joines
said, adding that it was
never too late to stop
what you are doing.
"Do not make
decisions that will
jeopardize your liberty.
'. You can't cheat and lie,
qW it will catch up with
you at some point."
Belcher said.
"It's-not gonna happen

said as she sat at a table
in the GCI visitation
area. "Sit down and

dogs The four women then
gathered up their
puppies. And along with their
fellow trainers slowly filtered
through the back door of the
recreation area on their way to their
dorms and another day in a
correctional institution.

The command to shake is given
of the trainers of the companion
program as well. "Other inmates
react positively when they see
the dogs," Moran said. The dogs
get a lot of attention from the
inmate population, Moran said.
The good part, she added, is that
the trainers get to spend 24 hours
a day with the puppies.
To understand the impact of the
puppies on these women's lives
here are some of their comments:
"It helps to make up for
failures. It makes every day here
better," Moran said about Storm,
a companion dog.
"This is a chance to do
something that is greater than
myself, to give back to society,'"
Sandra Belcher said. She added
that this was a way to atone for
what failures they may have.
"The best thing is the
unconditional love," Belcher said
about her puppy Sally, a
companion dog.
Joines, who never owned a dog,
said the program allowed her to
work on herself. "This gives me
a real sense of accomplishment,"
Joines said about her puppy
Zody, an Auburn dog.
"I love every second of it,"
West said about working with
her puppy Ajax, also an Auburn
dog.
It will be difficult when the
time comes for the puppies to
move on, but each woman said
they knew that their puppies
would go on to greater things.
"It's like sending them off to
college," Joines said.
"I will know I have done my
job well when Sally moves on to
help some disabled person,"
Belcher said.
Moran said that she had read a
story about a young girl who had
a companion dog. The girl told
that she was no longer the girl in
a wheel chair, but now the girl
with the dog. "He is the best dog
I ever had," Moran said.
Not every dog makes it through
the entire program. Those that do
not will be adopted by families
all across the country as family
pets. There is a waiting list for
the dogs.
"There are no failures in this
program," Belcher said
concerning the final outcome for
the puppies.
No story would be complete
about a group of people who now
must spend their lives behind the
cold steel of a fence if it did not
have an epilogue.
Here are the final comments of
those four women, who range in
age from 26 to 53 years old.
"I wish someone had said slow
down, think about what you
might lose," West said about her
life's experiences.
"You are worth something, just

Federal money
available to feed
low-income children
in Florida this summer

Federal funding from the U.S.
Department of Agriculture
(USDA) is available t6 Florida
faith-based and community
sponsors to operate feeding
programs for low-income
children this summer. The
federal funds will reimburse
organizations that operate the
USDA Summer Food Service
Program for Children.
When school lunchrooms close
for the summer, a significant
number of children in low-
income Florida communities
could be at risk of hunger or
poor nutrition because free and
reduced price school meals are
not available. USDA's Summer
Food Program is designed to
bridge this summer nutrition gap.
It reimburses organizations for
serving free, nutritious
breakfasts, lunches or snacks to
children in eligible low-income
areas. However, the program
continues to be underutilized,:
largely due to a lack of willing
operators and feeding sites. Last
year 8,067,535 free meals were
served to low income Florida
children at a USDA summer
food program ;Yet th.e 1,unmihi
of free and reduced price school
lunches that Florida children ate
during the school year was
178,176,514.
In Florida the Summer Food
Program is administered by the
Department of Education. To
operate the program this
summer, organizations should
contact this state agency as soon
as possible to attend one of the
required training being held on
the following dates: February 21,
February 22-23, February 27-28,
February 28, March 2-3, and
March 7-8, 2006. Applications
and sponsor information may be
obtained from the Child
Nutrition Programs, 325 W.
Gaines Street, Room 1122,

encourage your child to visit the site.
Practice makes progress! That's why the Florida Department of
Education built the FCAT Explorer site, to provide practice for help-
ing students make real progress on the skills needed in the classroom,
on the FCAT and in life.
The FCAT explorer is a set of free, web-based practice programs.
The content is built from the Sunshine State Standards benchmarks
that are tested on the FCAT. Students can practice by themselves,
because the program gives them corrective feedback and learning
guidance, plus lots of additional features designed to help them suc-
ceed.

Eyes are the organs which give humans the sense of sight The eye works by sensing the presence
of light. In order to see, light must pass through several layers of the eye. The first layer is called the
cornea. The cornea is the outer layer of the eye and acts to help protect the inner part of the eye. This
^ part of the eye must use tears to stay moist. The next two layers of the eye are the iris and pupil. The
iris is the part of the eye which gives a person their eye color, and is not used in vision, where as the
black part of the eye, or pupil, is key in the act of sight. Light is directed through the pupil and directed
to the next layer, the aqueous humor. The aqueous humor is used to help in protecting the eye, and to
help give the eye its spherical shape. The shape of the eye is important in order to have good vision.
I After passing through the aqueous humor, the light is sent through the lens, down through the vitreous
humor, and onto the retina. When the light reaches the retina there is a chemical shift in the eye. This
is what the eye "sees", and it in turn tells the brain how to interpret it,
Many animals have eyes, but unlike the humans and some mammals, not all eyes are the same. By
definition, "eyes" are organs that can detect light. This means that not all eyes see the same thing. And
unlike humans, many animals have more than two eyes. The Wolf Spider has four eyes that are made
to see best at dusk for hunting. Most species of snakes have very bad vision, only being able to sense
1 movement, while other snakes have binocular vision, such as the Asian vine snakes. Some frogs are
able to see both above and under water at the same time while floating along the surface. All animals'
eyes are designed to give them what they need in order to survive.
Humans have not only used their eyes to see for thousands of years, but have been mystified by
-' them. It is sometimes said that someone's eyes are the "windows to their soul". The eye is also often
' referred to as a symbol for God, as many religions believe that God has an allseeing eye, The ancient
Egyptians used the eye as a symbol of protection from the mythological god, Ra, referring to it as the
"Eye of Ra'. It is also known as the Eye of Horus" The eye was also one of the symbols used in hi-
eroglyphics. In more modem times, the American dollar bill has on the backside of the note, an "all
seeing eye within the top of a pyramid. Some suggest that this is to symbolize the need for God's all
1. seeing eye to guide the newly formed country through it's formation into a formidable nation, in Arabic
-( cultures the Khamsa, or 'Eye of Fatima", is used to ward off evil spirits. The symbol is a hand with an
r eye within it. This is sometimes known as the "Hand of God'.

Healthy kids, heart disease, drowning have state's attention


Health chief visits

Gadsden County,

promises return

, by ALICE DU PONT
a Times Editor

i; While rural counties have their share of
health care problems and urban cities have
3t different set of issues that are their
primary concern, Dr. Rony Francois,
Florida's Secretary of the Department of
IHealth said he must be concerned with the
Entire state.
y He spent almost a half-day in Quincy last
week talking to health care professionals,
(elected officials, and local administrators.
After several members of the community
gave brief descriptions of their programs,
tFrancois spoke about his role as the state's
top health officer.
For nearly an hour he hit on a myriad of
subjects from the number of drownings in
the state to the closing of Gadsden
Community Hospital.
"I have to be concerned with what is the
highest killer of people statewide and that is


heart disease and stroke. I would be very
surprised if they are not the number one
killers in your county," hlie said.
One major concern to him is the number
of people who drown each year in the state.
"We're dead last in the nation (in
preventing drownings)," he said. Drowning
is preventable and he is hoping that other
counties adopt a program like the one in
Lee County which teaches water safety to
every child in the school district.
"Last year there was not a single
drowning in that county. I'm not talking
about re-inventing the wheel but it's always
good to look at what someone else has
done with success and adapt it to your
situation," he said.
He also commented on teen pregnancy
and the problems that come with it.
"Before you (teenage girls) get pregnant
they should know that their bodies cannot
always stand the pressure. (Mothers) ought
to be grown women with a spouse," he
said. Teen mothers have issues that affect
the child, which affects health care, which
affects the schools.
"There is a link between healthy kids and
learning. When kids are healthy they learn
better," Francois said. He said that studies
have shown that people with more
education have healthier lifestyles.


Free health screenings Saturday
Faith Home Health, Inc. is sponsoring free health screenings in conjunction with
the grand opening of their Quincy office Saturday, Feb. 18, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
The office is located in the Southside Industrial Park (Old Niagra Wires bldg.) at
1633 Highbridge Road, just south of the Quincy city limit.
"We're very excited about the new office and what we can offer the people of the
county," said Earline Dawson, RN, director of nursing.
The screenings will include blood pressure, sugar, and weight. Lunch will be
provided. There will be free gifts for the adults and free toys for children.
"We encourage the public to come out, look around, eat, enjoy and help us
celebrate," Dawson said.


Sect. of Health Dr. M. Rony Francois
'The person who goes to the seventh
grade and gets out of school will not be as
healthy as the person who attends high'
school. And there is a (health) difference
between the person who gets a General
Education Diploma (GED) and the person
who actually finishes high school and gets
a diploma," he said.


With Step Up Florida coming later this
month, a statewide health initiative
encouraging exercise, he urged all citizens
to walk.
"Walking can solve a lot of problems.
Obesity is one of the contributors to heart
disease and diabetes. Walking is critical, I
tell everybody to get out and walk. I hope
you all will take part in Step Up Florida
and encourage the Gadsden County
community to do the same," he said.
Francois said he read about the
difficulties surrounding Gadsden
Community Hospital, but as Secretary of
Health there is nothing he could do.
"I am sonrry the hospital was closed by


Agency on Health Care Administration
(AHCA). One solution is to reach out to the
judge and say that if he or she was in a car
accident and needed a hospital and this one
is closed, that might get his attention. Or,
maybe you could persuade the judge that
the license (to operate the hospital) should
not be part of the bankruptcy proceedings.
That is just my own prospective," he said.
He praised the Gadsden County Health
Coalition for developing a health care plan
for the county and said he will return to the
county in the future. Someone in the
audience suggested that Francois set aside a
day to spend in the county and visit each
municipaltiy. "I will do that," he promised.


Midway community compiling its history
To all Midway senior citizens, aged 65 and above. The City of Midway is compiling a history of the Midway
comrfiunity and needs your input and historical information. Part of the project will be to put the information into
a historical book which chronicles the history of the City and community of Midway. Information may also be
posted on the City of Midway web page at www.midwayfl.com.
You can write out your history and contact Delores Madison at 575-4966, mae Cato at 574-4435 or Gloria

niGo Red for Women luncheon
qi
q The Gadsden County Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. and the American Heart
LgAssociation will host a Go Red for Women Luncheon on Saturday, Feb. 18, from 11:30 a.m. until 1
, p.m. The luncheon will be held at the Simon Scott Senior Citizen Center located at 79 LaSalle Leffall
Drive in Quincy.
The purpose of the luncheon program is to make women, especially African American women,
aware of preventative measures and early warning signs of heart attacks and strokes. Heart attacks
lead the causes of death among women. Participants will be provided valuable life saving information
by Dr. Alma Littles and a representative from the American Heart Association. Pharmacists and
nurses will also be available to assist with any personal questions relative to the topic.
In addition to receiving a wealth of information related to heart attacks and strokes, participants will
be served a heart healthy lunch for the cost of $10. Any interested female is invited to contact Inez
Holt at (850) 627-8951 or Janey DuPont Butler at (850) 857-9583 for lunch tickets to attend this very
valuable luncheon. In order for us to be assured of having enough lunches for all participants, the
deadline to request lunch tickets is Friday, Feb. 17, at 1 p.m.


Accidents
Continued from Page 1

The car was spun around on
impact and came to rest on U.S. 27
southbound. The semi-tractor and
trailer continued north after the
impact, crossing the grass median
and both southbound lanes before
entering the ditch and colliding with
some trees in the woods on the west
shoulder.
Shark was taken to Tallahassee
Memorial Hospital and treated for
minor injuries.
Friday afternoon around 4:30 p.m.
a 42-year-old Bristol man, Mark
Jerome Shuler, was killed in a one-
icar accident on Interstate 10 in
Gadsden County near the Midway
exit.
According to a report released by
FHP, Shuler was driving a 1996
Chevrolet east in the outside land
and for unknown reasons left the
paved portion of the roadway and
traveled onto the south shoulder of
the road where the right front side
struck a tree. After the impact, the
vehicle continued eastbound and
struck another tree before starting to
spin counter-clockwise, coming to
rest facing eastbound. The vehicle
caught fire and was fully engulfed.
Shuler was pronounced dead at the
scene. The report stated that he was
not wearing a seat belt at the time of
the accident, which is under investi-
gation.
Young said Shuler is the nephew
of the Liberty County sheriff. "I
called him to express my sympathy
on his loss. That was so unfortu-
nate," he said. Shuler was the sixth
traffic fatality in the county this year.
Chuck Wayne Pennick of 24
Salem Lane in Havana loss control
of his car and died around 9 a.m.
Saturday morning on State Road 63.


A witness reported to FHP that the
40-year-old Pennick was traveling at
a high rate of speed when he ran off
the road and struck the median with
the left side of his tires. When he-
attempted to come back on the road-
way, he overcorrected the steering
and loss control. The car spun sever-
al times while sliding across the road
and landed on the east shoulder.
Pennick's 2000 Chevrolet continued
to slide toward a wooded area until
the left side front and rear struck two
trees where the vehicle came to a
final rest before catching fire.
Pennick was the seventh traffic
fatality of the year. That accident is
also under investigation.


Another Havana man, Bobby Ray
Pitts, died in a one-car traffic acci-
dent in Leon County. Pitts, 46, was
traveling south on the Woodville
Highway about 3:40 a.m. Saturday
when the 2001 Ford Escort he .was
driving veered off the road. for
unknown reasons. The vehicle spun
counter-clockwise several times
after hitting two mail boxes and a
tree on the east shoulder. Pitts was
pronounced dead at the scene.

Honors Bass
During the Fall Athletic
Banquet held in January for
Robert F. Munroe Day School
students, Ben Bass was
recognized by Coach Brantley
for his tireless work with the
football team as the manager.
Ben's experience of working
with the Gadsden County EMT's
more than qualifies him for the
job. His hours of dedication
spent with the players include
practice days as well as games.
Ben has been the team manager
for two years.


Arnold

eliminates

Jag ars
"We played with no sense of
urgency." East Gadsden boy's
basketball coach Demetric
Salters said in analyzing his
teams exit from the state play-
offs Wednesday night.
.1The.l Jaguars were.,..upset -by
Panama City Arnold 58-55 in the
semi-finals of the District 2-3A
tournament at Godby.
16 missed free throws and 19
turnovers didn't help matters as
the Marlins pulled out a win after
having lost twice to the Jaguars
during the regular season.
The performance of Arnold
guard Tyler Schwab didn't hurt
the Marlins cause in the least as
Schwab shot in 21 points
including 5 3-point goals.
Carter Grubbs added 17 for
Arnold who went on to lose to
Godby in the finals Saturday
night.


Lady Jaguars

Continued from Page 15

McDougal each hit jumper's
within less than a minute of the
third quarter to allow East
Gadsden a slim 44-42 lead
entering quarter four.
Free throw shooting was the
main offense for both teams in
the fourth quarter. Washington
hit two free throws to tie the
game at 44 as the quarter opened.
The Lady Cats then took a lead
off two free throws, 47-45,
before McDougal responded with
two of her own to tie it at 47. A
big rebound by the diminutive
-Home sandwiched between two
outside jumpers by freshman
Grice led to a 51-47 Lady Jag
lead. Washington refused to lie
down and tied the score again at
51 with a basket and two free
throws. A put back by the
Pensacola team put- them up 53-
51 before Grice drained a huge
three pointer to put the Jaguars
ahead 54-53. The Lady Cats
tied things at 56 with a little over
two minutes to go before a
baseline jumper by Dyteisha
Francis put East Gadsden up for
good. After the Francis goal, the
Lady Wildcats were forced to
foul. Home and Grice shot 14
free throws between them down
the stretch helping the Lady
Jaguars to advance.
Home was 7 for 12 at the
line down that stretch, and
finished with a game high 30
points. "The ball is going to be
in her hands at crunch time,"
said Jaguars coach Rod Glenn.
"At about the four-minute mark I
told her, "It's your game. She
took over and came through."
The win advanced East
Gadsden (23-5) into Tuesday
night's regional semifinal against
Jacksonville Andrew Jackson.


Darius Jackson popped in 16
for East Gadsden and Eddie
Murray had 10 as did Earl
Thomas. The Jaguar inside game
that had been dominate most of
the season didn't figure in as
much this game.
The Jaguars finished at 21-7.
"It was tough to see the season
end and we made a lot of
mistakes." Salters said. "But I
don't want to take anything from
Arnold, bottom line, they out
playedus."... ......
The Jaguars lose only seniors
Harry Betsey and Ricky Gennie
off this team.
"We're already looking forward
to next year." Salters said.

will hold its monthly meeting Sunday
afternoon, Feb. 19, at 3 p.m., in Gardner
Hall, 150 E. 11th St., Greensboro
(diagonally across from the First Baptist
Church).
The program will feature the beginning
of transportation in Gadsden County's
public schools as well as identification
of various country schools in the early
years of public education for all children.
Anyone who has information, either
written, photos, or oral family history,
pertaining to old country schools in
Gadsden County, as well as
transportation for the children to reach
some of these schools, is encouraged to
come and share your history with us.
The Society would like to make copies
of any old photos or documents you
have relating to these matters.
Among those who will be sharing
memories will be Byron Clark, who has
a photo and vivid description of the
school bus which Alec Presnell of


Hardaway built in the late 1920s and
drove each day from that community to
the new consolidated school at Mt.
Pleasant. Each Sunday he drove the bus
throughout the Hardaway community
and picked up children and adults in
order for them to attend the Hardaway
Baptist Church.
So, church buses are certainly not new
in Gadsden County. Lynda Presnell
Dean of Hardaway and James Harold
Thompson of Springfield are among Mr.
Alec's many grandchildren. Both Linda
and James Harold are members of the
West Gadsden Historical Society.
We look forward to seeing you at the
monthly meeting.

Free redbud trees

Ten free American redbud trees will be
given to each person from Florida who
joins the National Arbor Day Foundation
during February 2006. The free trees are
part of the nonprofit Foundation's Trees
for America campaign.
"Redbuds will add lasting beauty to
homes across Florida," said John
Rosenow, Arbor Day Foundation
president. "They offer clusters of rosy
pink flowers in spring, dark green
summer leaves turning to yellow in the
fall, and a spreading, graceful form
throughout the year. They'll also add to
the proud heritage of Florida's 119 Tree
City USA communities. For three
decades Tree City USA has supported
community forestry across Florida, and
planting these lovely redbuds will add to
this important tree-planting tradition."
The trees will be shipped postpaid at
the right time for planting between
March 1 and May 31 with enclosed


planting instructions. The six to twelve
inch trees are guaranteed to grow, or
they will be replaced free of charge.
Members also receive a subscription to
the Foundation's colorful bimonthly
publication, Arbor Day, and The Tree
Book with information about tree
planting and care.
To become a member of the
Foundation and receive the free trees,
send a $10 contribution to Ten Free
Redbud Trees, National Arbor Day
Foundation, 100 Arbor Avenue,
Nebraska City, NE 68410, by Feb. 28.

him not to contact a family member," the report stated. "It was not
like Larry to go away and not make contact with his mother," Henry
Miller said.
Also significant is the fact the Jones complained of bad headaches
prior to disappearing. Jones is a black male, 5' 9" tall, and weighs 160
pounds. He has black hair and brown eyes, with no other
distinguishing characteristics.
Eddie Albert "Chopper" Bunion, 44, was last seen September 9,
2005. He was reported missing Nov. 5, 2005 by his mother, Lilly
Bunion. According to the GCSO report his mother said, "He was
depressed over not getting a job in a warehouse." He talked to his
mother and other family member about going to New Orleans to get a
job helping clean up in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.
Bunion is hard to miss. He is a large man, weighing 250 pounds and
standing 5' 10" tall. His head and face are clean shaven. He was last
seen in the West Tennessee Street area in Tallahassee wearing a blue
tee-shirt and long blue pants.
"He may have gone to New Orleans to find a job, but what is
puzzling about this case that he was also not likely to stay away from
family this long without getting in touch with someone," Turner said.
Bobbi Jean Tew is the only woman in Turner's missing files. The
last time anyone saw her was April 27, 2005 in Midway. She was
reported missing on May 3, 2005 by her ex-husband, John Jackson, of
Tallahassee. According to Jackson, Tew called her three children at
least twice each day. Jackson, who is the children's father, said that
when she failed to call all week, he reported her missing.
Tew was last seen in Midway by an ex-coworker, Glen Baggerly,
where she went to pick up a car she was having repaired. Jackson said
that Tew never picked up the car. However, on June 1, 2005, a Leon
County deputy reported that Tew, 35, might still be in Tallahassee in
the Tennessee Village area, where she was dropped off by a man
named Maurice Johnson.
A GCSO report stated that the street where Tew was last seen was a
place where females who are addicted to drugs frequently spent the
night. Two neighbors said they saw Tew sometime during the last
week in April walking down the street and that she got into a 1991 or
1992 burgundy Toyota Corolla.
Tew is a white female, 5' 8" tall, weighing 130 pounds, with brown
hair and hazel eyes.
The youngest of the missing is Deaunterrius Albert, 18. His mother,
Wanda Albert, reported him missing Dec. 29, 2005, but had not seen
him since Nov. 27, 2005. "The mother said she has not seen him since
a few days after Thanksgiving but he called the day after Christmas to
say that he was in Miami," Turner said.
When or why Albert left he has been classified as a runaway -
could be found in GCSO arrest records. "He was supposed to go to
court on Nov. 27, 2005 on an armed burglary charge and didn't show
up. That might be the reason he left," Turner said.
Albert is 5' 4" tall, weighs 165 pounds and has black hair and brown
eyes and is clean cut. He is also charged with robbery, aggravated
battery with a deadly weapon, and grand theft. The Department of
Juvenile Justice also has a "hold" on him.
Alexander Parks, Jr., has been missing from his Providence area
(near Greensboro) home since March 25, 2001. The 54-year-old man
has a mental disability that requires medication. He has family in the
Miami area, but had no means of transportation to get there and has
been classified as a "missing endangered adult".
"What has happened to him since 2001, we don't know, built people
have come back or been found after missing longer than this," Turner
said. Parks is 6' 2" tall, weighs 180 pounds, and has black hair and
brown eyes.
"If anyone knows anything about any of the people missing, they
can call me at 627-9233," he said.

Gadsden tomato growers retain use of



important pesticide for experimental use


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

Last month's federal ban on most uses of
methyl bromide will not impact local tomato
growers this spring but the fall might be a
different story, according to Dr. Steve Olson,
of the University of Florida Institute of Food
and Agricultural Sciences (IFAS) in Quincy.
Methyl bromide is a fumigant that controls
soil pests and weeds. It was banned by the
Environmental Protection Agency in response
to the Montreal Protocol International Treaty
because of the chemical harms to the Earth's
ozone layer.
"The objection is that methyl bromide
depletes the ozone. Although methyl bromide
is abundant in nature, there was nothing that
could be done about that, but there was
something that could be done about in it
agriculture," Olson said.

Gadsden County is one of only a few
counties that can still use methyl bromide for
the time being. "We have an experimental use
permit which can only be used for tomatoes,
bell peppers and strawberries. Our tomato
growers use it (methyl bromide) under the
plastic linings," Olson said. Methyl bromide
is useful locally mainly for getting rid of that '
pesky purple and yellow nutfedge, commonly
known as nutgrass. ,
Olson said the IFAS scientists are looking
for alternatives to methyl bromide. "We
currently have two experimental plots,. Telone
ad methyl iodine, which are both soil
fumigants," he said.
"Finding a replacement that will be as cost-
effetive as methyl bromide is proving to be
difficult, but we do have some promising new

"We petitioned the Montreal Protocol and
they allowed us to use a certain percentage of
methyl bromide, but we have to use less and
less each year," he said.
Until an effective replacement for methyl

critical use exemptions granted by the United.

Gilbreath said that IFAS scientists have
found that the use of a "new, virtually

To add to her troubles, she has an

take a plan before I leave here
today. Whatever sounds good."
At the table behind' her, things
were going a little better for John


Henry and Loretha Williams. The
couple, both in their late 60s sat
patiently and' answered questions
asked by their daughter, Rosetta
Blake, as she 'completed
applications for their prescription
drug plan.
Blake decided to take the day off
from her job to attend the workshop
with her parents. 'They had not
picked out a plan yet, but we've
talked to several providers that are
here today. I'm looking for what is
best for them in their situation," she
said.
"I don't know what we would
have done without her. Neither one
of us understands these different
plans and what they do. We're
leaving it up to her," Mr. Williams
said.
Blake, after talking to several
providers, settled down to fill out
the application she felt had the best
plan for her parents, based on their
combined medications.
There was even more help
available. "A lot of people felt they
couldn't afford the co-pay, but
we're here to offer help," said
Michael Hutson, operations
supervisor from the Quincy Social
Security office.
Many people with Medicare who
have limited resources, like most of


the people attending the workshop
last week, will get extra help
paying for Medicare prescription
drug coverage. Some people will
qualify to enroll in a plan and pay
no premiums or deductibles and co-
pays that are little or nothing,
according to Rashad Mujahid, of
the regional Social Security office.
"Some will qualify to enroll in a
plan with a reduced deductible, and
others will qualify to pay a sliding
scale premium and small co-
insurance," said Tymeisha Baker,
one of the coordinators of the
event.
For people with Medicare and
full Medicaid coverage with
income below $9, 570 for a single
person or $12,830 for a married
couple, you will pay: no premium,
no deductible, $1 co-pay for
generic drugs, $3 co-pay for brand
name drugs, no co-pay if in a
nursing home, and no co-pay once
drug expenses reach $3,600 in a
year.
For people with Medicare with
income below $12,920 for a single
person or $17,321 couple and
assets below $7,500 single and
$12,000 married couple, you will
pay: no premium, no deductible, $2
co-pay for generic drugs, $5 co-pay
for brand name drugs, no co-pay if


in a nursing home, no co-pay once
drug expenses reach $3,600 a year.
For people with Medicare with
income below $12,920 for a single
person or $17,321 for married
couple and assets below $11,500
for a single person and $23,000
married couple. You will pay: no
premium, $50 deducticle; fifteen
percent co-insurance, $2 co-pay for
generic drugs, $5 co-pay for brand
name drugs once drug expenses
reach $3,600 in a year.
For people with Medicare with
income below $14,355 for a single
person and $19,245 married couple
and assets below $11,500 single
and $23,000 married couple, you
will pay: sliding scale premium,
$50 deductible. fifteen percent co-
insurance, $2 co-pay for generic
drugs, $5 co-pay for brand name
drugs once drug expenses reach
$3,600 in a year.
(Assets that count include savings
and investments. Assets that do not
count include the home you live in,
your car, and a burial plot and/or
life insurance policy up to $1,500
each.)
The new Medicare Prescription
Drug Coverage began January 1 of
this year as a way of offering
Medicare consumers the
opportunity to save money on the

high cost of prescription drugs. The
last day to sign up this year without
penalty is May 15, 2006. Baker
said that there are approximately
7,400 people in the county who
receive Medicare benefits and of
that number more than 5,800 are 65
6r older. She said a little more than
1,500 are disabled.
"When they sign up for a plan
many will need extra financial
support. That is why we had the
representatives from Social
Security Administration and
SHINE (a part of the.Department
of Elderly Affairs that serves health
insurance needs for the elderly) out
here today to inform people of the
kinds of help available if they
cannot afford medications," Baker


said, adding, "if they get a social
security check they are eligible."
She said there is plenty of help
available for people who still do not
understand. "All of the providers
here are giving them telephone
numbers and contact people they
can call if they have any questions
later. I will admit that it is a
complicated process when you first
look at it, but there is help," she
said. Most pharmacists are happy to
take the time to help customers
match plans with medications,
according to pharmacist Ron
Colston.
Baker said that anyone with
questions can call her at 850-875-
2143, or call the Medicare help line
at 1-800-633-4227.
