County ends hospital talks


Commissioners going
after license; process
could be lengthy;


Temporary ER still
being pursued

by ALICE DU POINT
Times Editor
The Gadsden County Board of County
Commissioners has decided to stop all
negotiations with Ashford Healthcare


System, Inc. and GE HFS Holding of
Chevy Chase, Maryland.
GE is listed as one of Ashford's largest
creditor, holding a signature loan of $2.6
million dollars.
In another major decision, the county will
take steps immediately to start the process
to secure its own license.
In short, the county has decided to walk
away from the table and not be held hostage
any longer by Ashford Healthcare Systems
and GE HFS Holding.
The process could be lengthy but the hos-
pital has already been closed since
November and nothing has happened,
according to staff. The county plans to con-
tinue its efforts to open an urgent care facil-
ity as soon as possible and begin pursuing


its own license at the same time.
Starting from scratch means the county
must provide a certificate of need which
involves surveys and statistics that may
take months to compile. It could also mean
the county could, if ordered by the, Agency
on Health Care Administration, be require
to build another hospital.
The county had already pledged $2.4 mil-
lion to acquire the license from GE HFS
Holding. GE HFS was, however, using the
license as an asset. Whoever owns the
license is obligated to pay all of the AHCA
fines and back payments. With the county's
money now off the table, Ashford and GE
HFS may have to shop around to get a
buyer.
The decision to pull out leaves GE HFS


and Ashford holding a license with no place
to use it. The county has also decided to go
to court to evict Ashford from Gadsden
Community Hospital.by
Board of County Commission Chairman
Ed Dixon said they have been in negotia-
tions with "several entities" regarding a
critical care unit. Since the hospital closed,
approximately 1800 citizens have been
taken to Tallahassee Memorial Hospital.
Most, said Dixon, were not in need of
urgent care. The ambulance that was sta-
tioned at the hospital has also been
removed. "We made the decision because
the number of walk-ups (people seeking
medical attention) has been reduced drasti-
cally.


Growing up Bethune


Quincy's Albert
McLeod Bethune Jr.
recalls 'Mother Dear'

by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
There's hardly a person in the United
States of African-American descent who
has not heard of Mary McLeod Bethune.
Many, especially Floridians, know her
story. But no one knows her story like
Quincy resident Albert McLeod Bethune,
Jr.,
"My father, Albert McLeod Bethune, Sr.,
took me from Miami to live with her when
I was seven weeks old. I was her grandson
and she later adopted me, so I was her
grandson and her son. It's just as well
because she was the only mother I ever
knew," he said last week.
Bethune's journey from Miami to-his
grandmother began because of racial


backlash.
He was born
Melba Mohl and
Bethune, Sr.
white English
woman and the
couple was
forbidden by
law to marry.
They managed
to keep the
affair a secret Albert McLeod Bethune Jr.
for a while until
Mohl became pregnant. And so, shortly
after she gave birth to a black baby, she
was deported and sent back to the
Bahamas.
His father, unable or unwilling to raise a
child alone, took him home to his mother.
"I don't remember very much about
'Mother Dear' (that's what he always
called her) until I was about seven or eight

Bethune hosted

rich and famous

by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
Nestled in Daytona Beach between the
Atlantic Ocean and the famous Daytona
Speedway, sits a beautiful little college
called Bethune-Cookman. :
Palm trees line sidewalks and well-
manicured lawns are often dotted with


well-dressed students who study in the
warm sunshine or engage in academic
exchanges. The climate is almost always
idyllic and the nearly 3,500 students who
now attend the school take advantage of
the offerings of the fully accredited, four-
year liberal arts college.
To look at it now, one would have a hard
time believing that it all started in a rented
shack with five little girls as the student
body.
Had it not been for Mary McLeod
Bethune, thousands of African-American
students might not have gotten a college
education. It wasn't easy but hard work
and a desire to make her own life better,

This year's grand marshal is the
Honorable Delores Madison,
mayor of Midway.
The. festival begins immediately
following the parade on the
Courthouse" Square. festival
chairperson Gwen Powell-
Robinson said she is still looking
for entertainers to round out the
planned activities.
"We will not have speakers this
year. We have things for the kids,
food vendors, and a variety of other
vendors, and a Battle of the Bands,"
she said.

festival, call Powell-Robinson at

Stepping up to the plate ,


Hometown Hero: Don Morris


He's touched 10,000
lives with a ball, bat

and love of kids

by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
It's one thing to say you love kids and it's another thing
to step up to the plate. Quincy's Don Morris has stepped
up to the plate in more ways than one.
He has had a hand in the lives of more than 10,000 local
kids during his years of volunteering and as a part-time
employee at the Quincy Recreation Department.
The first time Morris stepped up to the plate was at the
age of 21 when he volunteered as a baseball coach. The
main reason was that they couldn't find a coach for his
younger brother's team.

The Morris family moved to .
Quincy from Baltimore when he was eight years old.
Fenway Park holds many good memories and the
Baltimore Orioles were his favorite team. Cal Ripken is
his favorite player.
Initally, Morris said, he wanted to be a football player,
but he had a problem, he was a nose bleeder. "They
wouldn't let me play football, but I could play
baseball," he said. And so, the die was cast and Morris

Marzell Hill announces
candidacy for Quincy city
Commissioner District 3


To the citizens of District 3, I,
Marzell Hill would like to
announce my candidacy for City
Commissioner District 3. I am the
son of the late Mack Lee Hill and
Tomicenia Butler. My grandparents
are the late M.L. Hill and Elma
Hill. I am the proud father of two:
Decarlos and Kyondra Hill. I'm a
1979 graduate of James A. Shanks,
I attended Alabama State
University, served in the U.S. Air
Force, a member of Greater Harvest
Ministries and employed with the
Department of Corrections..
I am running for this position
because I believe in open,
responsive city government that
respects, listens and serves its
citizens. I feel that this is the time
for me to give back a little to the
community. Having returned to
Quincy after my military career, I
wanted to come back to my
hometown and show that I have
energy, work experience and
knowledge that can be applied to
improve our city. If I am elected to
serve as your commissioner, I am
committed to: eliminating waste of


taxpayer's dollars, working towards
responsible growth management,
creating employment opportunities,
providing additional funding for
juvenile programs and allocating
funds to our seniors.
Your tax dollars will be used to
directly benefit our community.
Local control means greater
involvement and public
accountability. If I am elected we
will work together, so that we can
do better to get better.

Sam Palmer to run for Quincy Commission


After much soul searching,
consultation, and deliberation, I
have decided to vie for the City
Commissioner's seat of District 3.
Quincy has the potential for much
growth and service delivery to its
citizens. I am not content with the
support given to the citizens of the
City of Quincy and I am not
beholden to any special interest
group. I will represent your interest
and respond to all citizens with
dignity and respect.
Let me introduce myself. If I had
to describe myself to the public in a
few words "A Drummer for Justice
and Fairness." We can't change the
past but the future is in our hands.
God gives all of us talents we must
use them or lose them.
I was reared in Gadsden County,
attended Midway Elementary
School, Carter-Parramore High
School, graduated from Wayland
Baptist College, Plainview, Texas. I
entered the United States Air Force
in 1960 and attained the rank of
Chief Master Sergeant, the highest
enlisted rank in the Air Force.


Currently, I am working at Florida
State Hospital as a Training
Manager. At the hospital, I have
served on the Equal Employment
Opportunity Action Committee;
Staff Day Committee and chairman
of the Health Fair Committee. I
belong to several civic
organizations primarily because of
their goals and. missions. As a
member of the Quincy NAACP, we
have assisted our citizens in
addressing illegal acts. We have


provided counseling and financial
support for formal functions. As a
Gadsden County Democratic
Executive Committee Treasurer, we
assisted iq voter's education and
registration. Gadsden Men of
Action, we support students to
achieve higher education through
scholarships and provide financial
assistance and mentoring. I am also
an active member of CEDO board
of directors, and Pre-School Policy
Council.
I am married to the former Paula
Williams, and we have three
children, Anthony, Eric and
Michelle Palmer. My mother is
Mrs. Maybell Holley. I give her
credit for the sacrifices she made
for her children to excel. I attend

your support. The public is invited

Hurricanes and government


Eddie and the "why" syndrome


In a little more than three months we will be
headed into another hurricane season. Sunday
evening, while channel surfing, I came across a
program in which the learned scholars were
discussing the weather. Like a lot of people,
the weather is quite fascinating to me and I
wanted to hear what they were predicting.
The men were talking about hurricane
season,2006)and whatiwe can expect., i
According to them, we can look for the same"
as' 2005; 'only more hurricanes and of higher:
intensity. It's all due to global warming, they
said. Since 1986 many of the glaciers at the
north pole have simply melted and instead of
ice, they have become rivers.
As a result, the oceans that create hurricanes
are going to be warmer than ever so we can
expect some pretty bad weather. In Gadsden
County we have managed to escape
hurricanes, for the most part, with the
exception of Kate in 1986 and it really wasn't
that bad. There was extensive property
damage; but no loss of life.
Many people were unprepared because we
had never experienced a hurricane. Police had
the challenge of keeping folks off the street
who just wanted to 'see' the hurricane. Some
people didn't believe there was going to be a
hurricane and didn't take any precautions.
They were lucky.
In Florida, if you live here long enough,
you're going to be affected by a hurricane,
either directly or indirectly. Weather
forecasters say "big blows", as hurricanes were
once called, are increasing each year.
It still amazes me that people refuse to make


Respect rights


Dear Editor:

To the citizens of Gadsden. I,
Grandmaster Johnny Burns, did
not call forth a challenge against
drunks, old people and children,
to enter into the ring with me, at
the last City Commission meet-
ing. I simply felt that my 14th
Amendment rights had been
abridged by an officer who
came to my home to insist that I,
in spite of the reality of eminent
domain legislation at night,
remove one of my vehicles from
one side of the road to the other
at an instant!
As a result, 1 respectfully called
forth Chief Gerald McSwain
and said officer to enter, by invi-
tation if qualified by belt and
degree, into an ultimate fighting
handicap match against me (two
against one). The event was to
be used to generate money for
the re-opening of Gadsden
Memorial Hospital (we could
have filled the seats at the live-
stock pavilion)!


any preparations. They won't buy the basics:
water, canned foods, batteries, bleach and the
other necessities to sustain themselves for a
few days. Yes, you might have to stand in line
to get ice, but water you should already have
on hand.
To me, it's all a matter of priorities. If it's
important enough, you get it done.
Government is not going to be able ttotake up,
everybody's slack. If the.same hurricane
strikes several places in the span of a few 'days,'
as did Hurricane Rita, resources will the
stretched to the limit. In short, it's becoming
increasingly clear, we must take care of
ourselves.
If you don't want what happened to
thousands of people in New Orleans to happen
to you, now is the time to start making
preparations.
Now, or in the next few weeks, is the time
to begin stocking up. Even if you only buy two
or three extra canned foods and a gallon water
of each time you go to the store, it will help.
For one thing, you will avoid the long lines at
the stores. You will also avoid running all over
town trying to find flashlights and batteries.
While others are out with last minute shopping,
you will have the time to begin securing your
home or making plans to evacuate.
We have been extremely lucky in avoiding
direct hits from hurricanes. But as Gov. Bush
said last year, "we live in a vulnerable state.
It's not a matter of if you'll be hit by a
hurricane, it's when."
2006 may be the year for Gadsden County.
Be prepared.


SHowever, Mayor
Sherrie Taylor
felt that my invi-
tation was an out-
rage (tapes of the
purchased at City
3litor Hall); and, even
ltor though I was
legally on the
agenda, as a speaker, I was not
allowed to complete my propos-

Boot camp problems

Dear Editor:
You cannot "clean up" what
those monsters did to that little
boy at the boot camp! You can-
not hide the fact that the judicial
system has gone bad when the
ones doing the holding are sup-
posed to be the good guys.


Good guys...what the devil are
those academy's teaching the
officers these days? For it surely
is the devil's work...just watch
the video. Is that a nurse stand-
ing with her hands on her fat
hips lurking by as the big men
knock down a child? Had he
been there only two hours to
die? His last images of our
beautiful earth were horror-
filled terror. Oh, how can they
say he died? He died because of
an over-zealous attitude of cor-
rection that was clearly too
forceful and brutal to survive. In
their small brains, what were
they thinking??? Rodney
King?
I have also heard a slightly
retarded child was raped there as
well. Close the boot camps
down. Close the boot camps
dowp... close the boot camps
down...
Discusted and I wish I could
have a few moments alone with
a bull whip and those big men.

My brother Eddie emailed me recently
wanting my home address. I emailed it back to
him, curious as to why he would want it.
He has been to my house several times and I
told him that if he wanted to mail me
something large that would not fit in my post
office box he could mail it to the paper's
office.
It turns out Eddie has bought one of those
GPS things that will direct you to an address.
He wanted my address to put in it'to see if it
would giye him the correctdirection.
I've seen them in a couple of friends'
vehicles and they seem to work well. I told
him that, but he wanted to see for himself.
That's Eddie, he never would take
something at face value.
Growing up Eddie probably asked "why" at
least a million times. He had to be the most
curious kid that has ever walked the face of
the earth.
Most of Eddie's questions had to come
through me. I was his translator if by chance
you have forgotten. Sometimes it would be
exasperating to hear "why" so much.
Eddie wanted to know why the water came
out of the faucet, where it came from and
where it went when it went through the drain.
He would worry you to death to get an answer.
He didn't care what time of day or night it
was either. When he thought up a question, he
wanted an answer then.
On more than one occasion I remember him
waking me up in the middle of the night.
It's hard for me to wake up and always has
been. It is unnerving to have someone,
especially your little brother waking you out
of a sound sleep to ask some silly question.
"Bi-an, Bi-an," Eddie would say as he
shook me and the bed to ask why the clock
went tick, tock, or why the refrigerator made a
certain noise.
In that half droggy state you are in when
you are suddenly awakened at three in the
morning I would chastise him for disturbing
my dream of me and some beautiful movie
star on a deserted island.
When I would wake up enough to realize
what he would ask me I'd give him an off the
top of my head answer for his question.
The clock ticks because it is unwinding or that
is what clocks do, the refrigerator makes that
noise because of the compressor going on and
off to cool our food for breakfast in a couple
of hours.
Eddie's mind was a lot like that clock, I
think. He would start to unwind and get stuck
along the way and need an answer to start it
back unwinding.
I dream every night and have all of my life.
One night Eddie woke me
up in the middle of one of my
better dreams. Just as I was
about to save the world from a
giant water bug the bed shook
and I heard the familiar "Bi-an,
Bi-an."
It was bad enough he had
interrupted my desert island
dream, but saving the world,
that upset me.
"Why does the stove get
hot," Eddie blurted out.

Again in that half-daze between being
awake and asleep I roused up.
That was it, Eddie had asked "why" one too
many times, I thought as I rolled over.
"Go figure it out for yourself," I yelled at
him as I dragged the covers over my head and
offered up some stern repercussions for
Eddie if he did not let me get back to saving
the world.
I lay there for a second or two and then
thought, "Did he, Eddie has another chacteristic' he bkes to
take things apart, especially if he wants to
know how they work.
My dream shifted from me saving the world
to seeing Eddie spread out like one of those
cartoon characters that gets electrocuted with
sparks flying from their hands and feet.
Somewhere between the bed and the door
my feet hit the floor.
It was not a straight shot from our room to
the kitchen, but that night I straightened it out
pretty well.
I got to the kitchen just as Eddie was
opening the oven door with one hand and
holding a screwdriver in the other.
"Stop, I'll explain it to you," I screamed as
I went through the swinging kitchen door.
I explained it enough to get him back to
bed.
We made so much commotion my mother
met us as we headed back to bed. I explained
.that Eddie wanted a glass of water and an
explanation of how a stove worked. I
mumbled the part about the stove in hopes she
would not hear it.
That by the way did not go unnoticed. I had
to explain the stove at breakfast. I told her that
Eddie had asked how a stove worked and I had
got to show him.
You're a good brother, she said and then
told us that it wasn't a good idea to be up in
the middle of the night looking at our stove.
I agreed and told her I would try and
answer Eddie's questions without the show
and tell part next time.
Little did she know that if I had actually
gone back to sleep, instead of the four burner
stove she had grown so accustomed to in our
kitchen, there well could have been a pile of
screws, nuts, bolts, and knobs scattered across
the floor, with Eddie sitting in the middle of
the whole mess.
It was a lesson well learned for me that
night. If Eddie woke me up to ask a question I
gave him an answer.
I mean it was self-preservation on my part.
Without Eddie, who would I have to blame
when things went wrong?

Congressman Allen Boyd holds town hall meeting


by BYRON SPIRES
Times Staff Writer
A balanced federal budget
and stopping the expanding
deficit were the topics district
two Congressman Allen Boyd,
Democrat-Florida, spoke about
to a crowd of about 50 in
Quincy Tuesday morning.
Boyd held a town hall meeting
in the Gadsden County
commission chambers to
explain his stand on the budget
issue and to hear concerns from
constituents.
The rise in government
spending, Boyd said, needed to
stop. According to Boyd, in last
year's federal budget, the
government spent $2,472
billion (or nearly $2.5 trillion)
and took in $2,154 billion
leaving a $318 billion deficit.
"We are not doing a good
job," Boyd said, referring to the
overspending. He blamed much
of the problem on the
Republican controlled congress
and President Bush's spending
practices.
Boyd said that there has been
a 33 percent overall spending
increase since 2001.
Examples of the spending were
$5 billion a month in Iraq and
the 150,000 troops now in that
country. Boyd said that the
expense of those troops were
not in this year's budget.
Running the country's
finances like a business Boyd

Quincy Town Hall meeting Tuesday morning.


feels is the solution.
Spending more than you take
in he said was not the way to
run the country. The national
debt had risen from $5.6 trillion
in 2001 to its current amount of
$8.2 trillion, the largest in the
history of the country.
As the leader of the "Blue
Dog Coalition", a group of
fiscal conservative and like-
minded Democrat congressmen
and -women, Boyd said that he
felt it was time to develop a
reasonable plan to keep


Photo by Byron Spires
America from going even
deeper in debt.
"We have developed a 12
point reform plan for restoring
fiscal responsibility to the
government," Boyd said.
The plan is as follows:
* Require a balanced budget
* Don't let congress buy on
credit
* Put a lid on spending Boyd
said that prior to the current
administration a cap had been in
place, but has since been lifted.
* Make Congress tell taxpayers


how much they are spending
* Set aside a rainy day fund
* Don't hide votes to raise the
debt limit- Boyd said this was
being done after the budget had
been approved with
amendments
* Justify spending for pet
project Boyd said projects
should be explained as needed.
He gave the example of
infrastructure for sewage and
water at the I-10 / Pat
Thomas Parkway interchange.
"I would have no problem
defending that need," Boyd said
* Ensure Congress reads the
bills it is voting on Boyd said
he wanted a 72 hour waiting
period from when a bill is
introduced until it is voted on to
give the congress an
opportunity to read it.
* Make sure bills fit the budget
* Make Congress do a better job
of keeping tabs on government
spending
"This isn't about Democrat or
Republican, this about
oversight," Boyd said.
Boyd said that he would like
to see a summit;" of
congressional leaders and the
President to work out these
deficit problems and make the
government accountable for all
taxpayers.
Questions from the audience
were next on the agenda' and
Boyd took several dozen before
calling it a day and moving on
to his next town hall meeting.


Here are a few of those
questions and responses:
* When asked about the recent
purchase of six East coast ports
by Arabs, Boyd said that he had
no problem with private
business purchasing the ports
(they were previously owned by
an English firm). There are
some security issues that will
arise from the purchase he said.
It is the security not who
owns it that he was concerned
about.
* About the Voter Rights Act,
Boyd said that he had been
monitoring the issue closely and
found that the three parts that
will be phased out in the
summer of 2007 are stopping
prerequisites like your ability to
read or passing a voter test,
proficiency of speaking English
( focused on Hispanics and
Native Americans) and the
ability of the Federal
Department ot Justice to
monitor elections will expire.
"You don't have to worry
about how Allen will vote,"
Boyd said. He added that he
wanted to make it even easier
for people to vote, not to restrict
anyone from voting.
* When asked about the use of
military reserves and National
Guards in Iraq, Boyd said that
not since WW II had so many
National Guard been used. He
said that there had been so
many problems in the early
stages with military personnel

A Gadsden County jury
awarded a Georgia woman
more than $3.5 million last
Tuesday night. Shanequa
Mimms, 27, survived massive
injuries she sustained when she
was hit by a car on Dec. 20,
2003, while in the median on
Interstate 10 in Gadsden
County.
A civil suit, on Mimms'
behalf, was filed against
Marianna Toyota. The 2004
Lexus that struck Mimms was

of Marianna Toyota, but was


Faulty 1 ail doors create a


male/female inmate problem


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

You would think that a
building constructed in 1989 at
a cost of more than a million
dollars would still be in fairly
good shape 17 years later.
That's not the case with the
Gadsden County Jail. It may be
falling apart bit by bit.
Last week brought another
challenge. If it hadn't happened
at the county jail, not many
people would blink an eye. It
could have been compared to
the old fashioned college
panty-raid, if it hadn't been at
the county jail and didn't
involve male and female
inmates.
About 2 a.m. several male
inmates were able to get out of
their unit and make their way
down to the the female unit.
What they planned to do, no
one knows. One inmate said he
only wanted to visit his girl.
They would have gotten away
with it, too, if several females
had not started screaming as the
men entered their cell.
"The. corrections officers

multi-po


went down there right away
and secured everything," said
Sheriff Morris Young. The men
got out when they figured out
how to bypass the lock system
on the old doors. They shared
that knowledge with females
who used the same technique to
allow the men to gain entry into
their cell.
To prevent anything like that
from happening again the doors
need to be replaced. A
conservative estimate puts the
price tag at between $60,000'
and $75,000 for replacement
doors. The new doors will have
a three-point locking system
that will be all but impossible
to compromise.
Seven or eight males were
able to access the female cell
block, but Young said no one
was injured. "We talked to
every one of the females one by
one and asked them to tell us
what happened. We also asked
if any of them wanted to file a
complaint, or if they had been
touched by any male inmates.
None of them wanted to file a
complaint," Young said.
Major Shawn Wood, jail


administrator, said doors aren't
the only problem. Late last
week the washing machines in
the jail's laundry unit started
shaking and making loud
noises each time a machine was
turned on. "I was told that the
floor in that unit is sinking,"
Wood said.
"The Board of County
Commissioners has been on top
of things down here and an
engineer is on the way. It can
be repaired, I think, but they
will probably have to take the
floor out," he said. The price
tag is expected to be high.
Those problems, coupled
with a daily averagecensus of
between 220 and 240 and a
weekend population of about
260, things don't look good for
a facility built for 150. Wood
said during the summer months
there are usually more arrests,
too.
"I'm also concerned about
all of the development coming
into the county and no one
seems to be addressing that
issue as it relates to the jail.
More people, more crime,
that's just a fact," he said.


owned by the dealership. The
jury took more than an hour to
return the verdict against the
company.
Mimms' attorneys, Ben
Crump and Daryl Parks of
Tallahassee, said that "as a
result of the accident, Ms.
Mimms sustained multiple,
severe, life-long injuries." Her
injuries included two broken
legs, a broken arm, a broken
hand, a large swollen deformity
of the right elbow, and a
seriously fractured cervical
spine and pelvis. She spent four
weeks in Tallahassee Memorial
Hospital.
"It is a miracle that she is
alive, but miracles don't come
free. Unfortunately, Ms.
Mimms: -.!will 'eded; extensive
surgeries .in order to fix her

jury.
The jury awarded Mimms $3
million for past and future
suffering, disability and reduced
enjoyment of life, along with
$547,000 for medical expenses

being called up with families
and jobs. Many of those issues
he said have been worked out.
"My hope is that we will
soon end in Iraq," Boyd said,
adding that he was waiting on
the President to provide a plan.
* About the automatic Congress
pay raise, Boyd explained that
in the past Congress had
depended on income from
speaking engagements and
honorariums as additional
money. The automatic cost of
living based on what federal
judges receive was enacted in
1989 to slow down the special
interest money Congress
received.
Boyd closed by saying that
no matter the differences people
may have over issues, this
country still has the best
system.
"There is no better place to
live," Boyd concluded.

Age-Related Macular
Degeneration
Age-related macular degener-
ation (AMD) is a common eye
disease associated with aging
that gradually destroys sharp,
central vision. It is one of the
leading causes of legal blind-
ness and vision impairment in
older Americans.
The progression of AMD can
be slow or rapid, but the dete-
rioration of central vision gen-
erally occurs over a period of
a few years. If you experience
the following, see your Eye
M.D. right away:
* Straight lines appear wavy
* Difficulty seeing at a dis-
tance
* Decreased ability to distin-
guish colors
* Inability to see details, such
as faces or words in a book
* Dark or empty spots block
the center of your vision
Although the exact cause of
macular degeneration is
unknown, several studies
have shown the following may
be at risk:
* People over age 60
* People with hypertension
* People that smoke
* People with a family history
of AMD
Early detection and treatment
is the best defense against
losing your vision. If you are
at risk for macular degenera-
tion, see your Eye M.D. for a
complete eye exam at least
every one to two years. If your
vision has been reduced, low
vision rehabilitation resources
can help you maintain an
excellent quality of life.

We Heard You.
Our Community Conversation on February 11, 2006 at East Gadsden High
School was a huge success. Gadsden Superintendent Reginald James and
Tallahassee Community College President Bill Law express their appreciation
to all participants who provided valuable input on Gadsden County's
educational priorities and plans.

Some of the issues discussed include:
Expanding early childhood education programs
Providing greater after-school learning support services
throughout the county
Increasing the presence of organizations that serve youth
by providing positive experiences after school and during
the summer


What's Next?.
All participants will soon receive a report summarizing the
issues discussed at the meeting. We will then work with
all interested parties to develop a plan to implement the
recommendations that participants identified.

Watch for an announcement about a Web site that
will allow any interested Gadsden County residents
to provide additional input and reactions to the
recommendations.


If you were unable to attend the Community H
Conversation and would like a copy of the
summary report, please contact Chris Hansen

Kidnapping

Continued from Page 1
About two months ago, the 22-
year-old Guatemalan woman who
speaks no English, had a fight
with her boyfriend and called
Orellana and asked him if she
could stay with him until things
cooled off at home. He agreed.
A few days later the woman and
her live-in boyfriend of eight
years (whom she referred to as
her husband) reconciled but
Orellana had apparently
developed romantic feelings that
were not reciprocated. "He
started talking to her at work and
basically asking her to leave her
husband and live with him.
Unable to stop the harassment,
two weeks ago she quit her job to
get away from him. He started
riding up and down the road
where she lives," said Hall said.
Last Monday, when the woman
came to a Quincy laundromat,
she was abducted by Orellana and
taken to a trailer he shares with
three roommates at the Hilltop
Trailer Park. Through a
translator, the woman said
Orellana forced her to leave the
laundromat and write a note
sayitig "I'm leaving you" which
was left in the car along with the
laundry basket in the parking lot
of another laundromat.
For a week, she said, he kept
her inside a locked room. For the
first two days she was forced to
take sleeping pills. She was also
sexually battered throughout the
ordeal. "She decided to appeal to
his human side and began crying
and begging him to let her go
because the relationship was not
going anywhere," Hall said.
Saturday, Orellana allowed her
to call a cousin to come get her.
Around the same time, Hall said
an Hispanic officer agreed to help.
by calling the only lead they had,
a cell phone number. "When she
called she asked to speak to
"Maynor" and the person on the
other end said that 'Maynor
couldn't come to the phone
because he was with his


girlfriend' we knew we had him
then," Hall said.
When Hall arrived, the woman
was gone and Orellana denied the
woman was ever in the trailer, but
Hall said the woman was able to
accurately describe almost
everything in the room including
two blankets on the floor, two
towels and the bottle of sleeping
pills. She stated that he only fed
her once a day and that was at
lunch.
Hall said he was concerned that
the crime would never have been
reported if the woman's landlord
had not persuaded her to call.
"This happens a lot more than
people realize in their culture and
they are reluctant to report it to
police...they want to handle
things themselves," Hall said.
"He (Orellana) really doesn't
think he did anything wrong,"
Hall said.

controversy. All three are
employed at Florida State
Hospital.
McLeroy had been romantically
involved with the woman and the
two had a child. The woman
occasionally stayed with
McLeroy at his Chattahoochee
home.
In recent weeks, however, the
woman, started seeing Gilcrease,
whom she had dated in the past.
It all started around midnight
Friday night. Gilcrease arrived at
Florida State Hospital around
11:40 and drove through the
parking lot, then drove south on
Main Street.
Somewhere along the way he
drove past McLeroy, who
decided to turn around and follow
Gilcrease. McLeroy caught up
with him on the railroad overpass
and forced him to stop. McLeroy
get out of his Toyota and walked
toward the Gilcrease car.
' According to the report,
Gilcrease noticed that McLeroy
had a handgun which he aimed
and fired at Gilcrease. Two

bullets struck him, one in the
hand and one just in front of his
ear, which shattered his jawbone.
Inv. Matt Rowan said Gilcrease
reported that three shots were
fired, but only two spent casings
have been found.
"Gilcrease managed to leave the
scene and sped away from
McLeroy. Gilcrease drove south
on Main Street, approximately
three miles to his father-in-law's
residence on Bonnie Hill Road,"
the report stated.
McLeroy got back in his car and
followed Gilcrease. Before
Gilcrease could get inside of his
relative's home, McLeroy
showed up and Gilcrease yelled
for the people inside to call the
police. Gilcrease ran around the
house and McLeroy chased him.
As Gilcrease climbed under the
house, so did McLeroy and the
two began wrestling around
underneath the house. Gilcrease
managed to get away from
McLeroy again. This time,
McLeroy got into his car and left.
When deputies and EMS
arrived on the scene, a bleeding
and beaten Gilcrease, was taken
by helicopter to Tallahassee


Memorial Hospital.
Shortly after arriving, deputies
went to McLeroy's Line Street
home and he came to the door
and "appeared to have just
bathed".
He was taken to the county jail
and advised of his rights. When
asked about the car, McLeroy
said the car had been parked in
front of his home with the keys in
the ignition and had been stolen.
He admitted, however, that he
was aware of a sexual
relationship between his
girlfriend and Gilcreasd:
"McLeroy was visibly angered
when asked about the
relationship, but McLeroy denied
confronting Gilcrease about the
relationship. He admitted that he
had multiple firearms inside his
residence," the report stated.
The gun that deputies suspect
was used in the shooting, a .22
caliber handgun, had been stolen
from his family many years ago,
McLeroy said.
In all, deputies found eight
handguns and rifles of various
calibers at the home.
He is in the county jail in lieu
of $75,000 bond.

County wants Midway to back off expansion


t by ALICE DU PONT
i, Times Editor

r: Members of the board of county
commission said they didn't want to stop
S growth in Midway, they wanted to help
them do it in such a way that it was good
I Ior the entire county.
S. Midway wants to annex the Pat
Thomas Law Enforcement Academy.
h "Midway has every right to do what
they want to do, but let's do it right and
if we can help them, we ought to do
that," said Chairman Ed Dixon.
j He suggested that Midway stop and
take a look what they are doing in terms
of growth and development.
S : "I'm in favor of asking them to hold off
on pursuing the annexation) until the


moratorium is over," he said. Others
agreed that there is no way to prevent
Midway from annexing whatever they
want, but what they do will impact the
rest of the county.
Fire protection, police protection, EMS
services, the road and bridge department
will all have to serve the thousands of
people who are expected to move in over
the next few years.
Currently, Midway has two deputies
dedicated to the area, but according to
Dixon, Midway only pays the officers an
hourly rate. The county is still picking up
all other benefits for the officers.
"Their argument is that they will have
the money to provide services down the
line, but we'll have to subsidize them
until that growth," said Commissioner


Sterling Watson.
Commissioner Brenda Holt said her
main concern was the health and safety
of the people moving into the area. With
homes being built at four per acre in
most developments, the threat of fire is a
major concern.
"All it takes is for one house to catch
on fire and spread. We don't have
enough fire trucks or manpower. And
where would you put the fire hydrants?"
she asked.
Midway is in Commissioner Eugene
Lamb's district and where he grew up
and now lives. He agreed with other
commissioners that it is Midway's right
to annex, but said he would appeal to the
city to wait another three months until
the moratorium is lifted.


"By that time, there may be some
things in place," he said.
In other matters:
Commissioners approved a one-day
event March 18 at Southern Moss Farm
for a concert called "Women Rock" to
benefit Refuge House.
Approved the conceptual plan for
Carmen Maria Phase One Subdivision,
but not before Chairman Dixon chastised
Matthew Parker, representative of the
property owners.
Parker failed to attend the last meeting
when the property was on the agenda. It
was passed over and Dixon had staff to
make sure either Parker or the property
owners attended Tuesday's meeting.
"If you choose to disrespect this board
or your clients again, I will recommend


denial and give you a year to think about
it. Do we understand each other?" Dixon
asked.
At the end of the meeting,
Commissioner Watson took a moment to
honor Margaret Lawson Johnson for her
hard work to see the new library become
a reality.
"Gadsden County lost one of its best
friends Sunday with the death of
Margaret Lawson Johnson. The county
has lost a good citizen and a generous
human being. She was a true soldier for
the library and she will be missed," he
said.
Chairman Dixon said the county would
find a. way to properly honor Mrs.
Johnson for her work and service to the
community.


Stewart Street kids 'open wide' for health


It

Local dentist

Sterling Watson

takes a peek into

some little mouths


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

Even before the doctor told them to
open wide, students at Stewart Street
Elementary School were getting a lesson
in what's good to eat to keep their teach
healthy.
"What are healthy snacks?" they were
S asked.
S "Vegetables, fruit, milk" they chimed
all together as only first graders and pre-
schoolers can do.
"Candy," said one tiny voice.
"No, candy isn't good for you," said
the teacher and asked her pupils why.
"Because it gives you cavities," said in
S several students.
A few minutes later they were ushered
into another part of the room to be
examined by local dentist Sterling
Watson, who had volunteered to spend
most of the day looking into little mouths
while his dental assistant Robin Watson
patiently recorded each child's
evaluation and charted it on individual
dental records sheets.
Each child received a new tooth brush,
courtesy of the Gadsden County
Community Health Council, Inc. after
the screening. .
The free screenings and follow-up care.
lare the result of a collaborative effort
S between the Gadsden Courity Health
t i.-.


Department, Gadsden County
Community Health Council, Inc., North
Florida Medical Centers, and the
Gadsden County School Board.
Dr. Lindalee Clayton, a dentist with
North Florida Medical Centers, provided
the dental work Saturday morning at the
medical center in Quincy.
"At 9 o'clock this morning there were
39 children here," she said. By 3 p.m.
that afternoon she was still at it, said
Nancy La Brecque, general manager for
NFMC said. "There have been mostly
fillings and extractions. We didn't do any
cleaning today," she said.
She said the center is trying to get a full
time dentist but the county fell short by a
few points in its application to show
need. There is no full time pediatric
dentist in the county. "If that's not need,
I don't know what is," LaBrecque said.
Students from Florida State
University's School of Medicine served
as volunteers to help sooth the jitters
experienced by some of the children.
"I'm a little nervous," said seven-year-
old Devonta before Dr. Clayton walked
into the room.
"I'm just going to get my little whistle
engine," Clayton said, showing Devonta
the instruments before she started. She
allowed the air from one of the
instruments to blow cool air on his face
to make him a little more comfortable.
"Some of the kids have never seen a
dentist before and we do our best to set
them at ease." she said.
Five-year-old Delesia and her mother,
Danielle, had waited all day. Delesia
needed a filling and some other dental
work that her mother will have to pay for
in the future. "I'm just grateful thatithi,
are doing this. It helps me out a great
deal financially," she said.


Dr.

Watson

gives free

smiles
Dr. Sterling
Watson gave
dental
screenings to
over 250
students at
Stewart Street
Elementary
School last
Wednesday.
Saturday many
students
received fillings
and extractions
free of charge.


The screening will be completed today
by Dr. Watson and 'the follow-up care
will be completed Saturday by Dr.
Clayton at the NFMC in Quincy.


Eager faces and bright smiles are the
order of the day when Stewart Street
students got a visit from local dentist
Sterling Watson for free exams and
any needed dental care. Students also
received dental health education and
these free toothbi'rushes.

The Florida Comprehenstie
Assessment Test FCATI is
rapidly approaching Ourtu-
dents will take the FCAT A
February 27, through March
10, 2006. Our adnumnistrators. "
teachers, and staff have
worked very diligently all year
to prepare our children for this test. The FCAT measures what our
children have learned since they took the test last school year. My
visits to schools show that our children are working hard to do their
best. We expect them to do extremely well this year.

The children are our most important asset. The most important
things any of our students have are Jparental support and guidance.
It is difficult for a child to succeed without the caring support of
parents and the community. Can you imagine going to work every-
day and no one smiling, offering guidance, or giving you feedback
on how well you are doing your job? Our children need our unwa-
vering support to do their very best; not because of potential con-
sequences but because their very best is all we should expect.

Here are a few things you can do to support your child all year long
but especially as he or she prepares for the upcoming FCAT:

1. Ask your child's teacher for areas your child needs help with and
provide it.
2. Get on the Internet! FCAT Explorer is provided free from the
Florida Department of Education at www.fcatexplorer.com. This
site offers mathematics and reading games for every grade level.
Encourage your child to use it.
3. Ask about after school tutorials that are available. Most are
free!!
4. Ask for FCAT tests that have been released. Work on them with
your child or find someone who can.
5. Be patient and understanding. Do not use punishment if your
child is unsuccessful; encouragement works best. Reassure your
child that hard work ensures success!

Ilreparing$tudients for the CAT -nt the mission of.the school
district. Our mission is to 'repareohli~dren for success in life and
the FCiAT is just a tool to help us reach our goal. "r

HMS celebrates
Black history
February is Black History
Month, consequently the faculty
and staff at HMS feel that James
Weldon Johnson's poem "Lift
Every Voice and Sing" is a vital
part of the celebration of Black
History Month.
The poem has been set to
music. HMS took time out to
make a teaching video.
On the video the faculty and
staff are singing the uplifting
negro spiritual. This was a
friendly activity that the faculty
and staff seemed to enjoy.

The Gadsden County Times February 23,2006 13,


Every third Monday in February the United States observes the holiday of President's Day. This holiday is still officially known .
as the celebration of George Washington's birthday, February 22, 1732, but has become better known as a day for honoring all of .
the U.S. presidents', present and past.
The United States of America has currently had 43 presidents to hold office, including our current president, President George W. *
Bush. The first president of the United States was George Washington, who held office from 1789 to 1797. President Washington only 0
held office for two terms. This set a precedent for the current law stating that presidents cannot be elected for more than two terms in '
office. Washington is still known as the "Father or our Country". George Washington died on December 14, 1799 from a throat infection. N
Washington's Birthday was made an official holiday in 1885 by President ChesterArthur.
There are many ways that the Presidents of the United,States have been honored. One such honor is a monument called Mount Rushmore.
The monument is a-sculpture of four prominent presidents in history carved out of the side of Mount Rushmore in the Black Hills of South Dakota, Featured in the
mduntainside are 60 foot busts of George Washington, the third president of the country Thomas Jefferson, the 26th president, Theodore Roosevelt, and Abraham Lincoln,
the nation s 16th president. These presidents were chosen to symbolize 150 years of leadership in America. The monument was designed by artist Gutzon Borghin.
Production began in 1927 and was completed in 1941. The masterpiece was worked on by over 150 workers. Other monuments in the United States that are dedicated to
honoring past President's are the Washington Monument and the Lincoln Memorial, Both of these monuments are located in Washington D.C.
United Stated President's, when elected, serve a four year term By law, if re-elected they are only allowed to serve one more four year term, a total of eight years in
office. The president and his family reside in the White House in Washington, D.C. While George Washington helped pick the sight of the White House, he never lived
there. Our nation's second president,' John Adams, was the first president to live in the White House. In present day, presidents' travel in the airplane named Air Force One.
After their term in office, all President's keep their title. They continue to have active careers. Eleven presidents have Presidential libraries built in their honor

44 The Gadsden County Times February 23,2006


March 1 deadline for exemption


by BYRON SPIRES
Times Staff Writer

Time is slipping away if you
have not filed for homestead
exemption. The last official last
day to file is March 1, less than
a week away.
Gadsden County property
appraiser Clay VanLandingham
has been running notices to
remind property owners in the
county's newspapers and each
property owner has received a
notice by mail.
All new homeowners as of
January 1, 2006 are required to
come into the office and file for
the tax-saving homestead
exemption. The average cost to
someone who is eligible to file
and does not file will be about
$500, VanLandingham said.
The few minutes that you

The fifth grade group of
students at George W. Munroe
Elementary School had the
distinct pleasure of receiving
motivation and inspiration
* through 1' series of speaking
events by some of Gadsden


County's most prominent
leaders.
On Thursday, February 2, local
attorney Marva A. Davis
volunteered to speak to the fifth
grade students concerning their
preparation for the upcoming


Florida Comprehensive
Assessment Test.
Although her speech
addressed issues such as the
FCAT, the focal point of her
speech was how to bring your
dreams into fruition. She
explained to the students that
achievement must first
commence with a dream, then
belief in the dream, and finally
verbalizing and showing action
toward accomplishing the
dream.
In addition to Mrs. Davis'
visit, City Commissioner
Derrick Elias spoke to the
students on Thursday, February
9 regarding preparation for the
FCAT. He emphasized the
importance of being motivated
to realize your goals. He even
shared personal accounts about
his elementary school
experiences and how his
mother, grandmother and their
respective "belts" served as his
motivators.
The students, as well as the
teachers, sincerely appreciated
the informative, inspirational
speeches delivered by Mrs.
Davis and Mr. Elias. This series
of speaking events was
coordinated by Mrs. W. Dean
McClurkin, 'GWMES fifth
grade teacher. The next two
speakers in this motivational
speaking series are Sheriff
Morris Young and Mr. Antonio
Johnson.

Michelle Gates slashed, zipped, stoled,
and shot her way to 45 points in leading
the Pensacola Lady Tigers to an 84-70
win over East Gadsden's Lady Jaguars in
the Region 1 4-A FHSAA girls
basketball finals at Pensacola Pine Forest
Saturday night.
East Gadsden had no answer for the 5-
2 junior who made her presence felt from
the games first quarter through the end.
With Gates scoring 7 points and
Bianca Cutley also getting 7 the Lady
Tigers led 20-15 after the first quarter.
That was to be the pattern of the game as
Pensacola managed to out score the Lady
Jaguars in every quarter to slowly pull
away.
Gates got 11 in quarter 2 that help
carry the Lady Tigers to a 41-32 halftime
lead.
East Gadsden made a run early in the
third quarter and actually tied the score
on a 3-pointer by Jasmine Grice at the.:
.,4,:23 markof the stanza. .... :,:> /.,. ,
But here came Gates again hitting a
trey, scoring off 2 steals and hitting an
off balance jumper getting Pensacola
High to a 61-50 margin as the quarter
ended.
By that time Gates had 32 points. The
13 she added in the fourth quarter along
with 11 by Cutley over came 6 point
efforts by East Gadsden's Arbuita
McDonald and Erica Neal in the quarter
and Pensacola High was headed to the
Florida Finals eliminating a Quincy
teams fifth straight appearance after East
Gadsden made it the last 2 years, with
Quincy Shanks making it the previous 2
to that.
Cutley, a freshman added 24 to Gates
total. They were the only Lady Tigers in
double-figures.
Neal led East Gadsden with 20 points
and Traci Lewis had 10. Shyrelle Home
added 8 and had 9 assists. East Gadsden
had chances inside but couldn't convert.
That and being unable to handle Gates
ended their season at 24-6.
"We didn't execute when we had
chances to score." Lady Jaguar coach
Rod Glenn said.


"We had open looks and opportunities
to score some buckets underneath but
couldn't make them fall." He continued.
"I was proud of the effort not only
tonight but all this season. I would, t
trade this team for anything."

Jeff DuBree Whippoorwill
Sportsman's Lodge
The weather was picture
perfect for this year's team
crappie tournament held on
Lake Talquin this weekend.
The weigh in for the fourth
consecutive year Crappie USA
has held an event on Talquin
was at Whippoorwill
Sportsman's Lodge. Cabins,

Thomas Park, as well as


several Tallahassee hotel
rooms.
There were 54 teams
entered in the tournament with
anglers coming from several
different states. There was a
semi-pro division and an
amateur division. The fish are

average fish.
In the amateur division,
Danny and Beth Williamson, a
husband and wife team from

the river channel near
Williams Landing. Their
winning string weighed in at
12.67 pounds. They also
caught the day's big fish, a
nice speck weighing in at 2.81'
pounds. Their day of fishing
netted over a thousand dollars
in prize money.
Several locals also did very
well this year. The Fishbum
brothers from Tallahassee


placed second. They caught
their seven fish limit weighing
12.09 pounds above Coe's
landing fishing heavy brush.
And, fishing solo W. Roberts
also from Tallahassee placed

West Gadsden's Lady Panthers loss in regionals


by SUSIE MORRIS
The West Gadsden Lady
Panthers were hoping to
become the first team at the
new school to reach the state
tournament. The only thing
standing in their way was a
2A Regional final basketball
game against the Ponce de
Leon Pirates (22-5) on the
roadSaturday night
New coach, Patricia
M11cMillan, and her team may
not have had the impressive
record (13-11) like Ponce de
Leon but they did have -some


impressive players. Coach
McMillan's daughter,
Chelsea was a two year
starter at East Gadsden High
School until her mother got
the job at West Gadsden.
The junior center helped lead
EGHS to two Final Four
appearances in two years.
Complimenting McMillan
were also Tyeshia Battles and
Lateisha Colston, who scored
..31 ., points in- .,Region,
quarterfinals.
The Ponce de Leon
basketball team, armed with
the home court advantage and


a stingy defense, eliminated
the Panthers 54-43 for a right
to head to Lakeland this
week. Late foul trouble by
McMillan changed the
complexion of. the game as
the Panthers held a one point
lead at the half but had to
rally in the second half.
With under a minute
remaining and down by four
points, West Gadsden had to.
foul to stop the clock.
Shooting on their own goals,
the Pirates made most of their
free throws and ran the lead
to eleven as time ran out.


"I felt like the odds were
stacked against us," said
Coach McMillan. "There
were a few controversial calls

The Gadsden County Times February 23, 2006 17


Grandson

Continued from Page 1

years old. There were people coming
and going in our house all of the time but
I just thought they were her friends," he
said.
It didn't mean anything when people
like Duke Ellington, or Count Basic or
any of the famous musicians of the time
stopped by. You have to remember that
'Mother Dear' was a singer. She sang
alto and after the college was founded,
she raised most of the money to operate
from taking students to entertain rich
people on Daytona Beach and Ormond
Beach," he said.
And so, when famous people like
baseball great Jackie Robinson and his
wife and First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt
came by he, being the only child in the
house, sat around and listened and often
joined in the conversation.
"She never discouraged me from
entering into conversations with adults
who came to our house. Most of them
had to spend the night with us or some of
our friends because Blacks couldn't stay
in any of the hotels."
Besides, at the time Daytona was little
more than a sleepy fishing village and
the city could not even afford an
auditorium. The college, however, had a
stage and whites often came to the
college to attend performances.
Life for little Albert was uneventful.
Like most little boys he had his share of
scraped knees and various and sundry
bruises. He mostly did as he was told and
did not push the envelope when it came
to his grandmother.


"I knew better than to make her mad. I
remember her spanking me one time and
that was with the back of a hair brush.
But, boy did she have a temper. When
she was angry, I was frightened. As a
little boy it seemed to me that when she
got angry her eyes turned red," he said.
She didn't have to spank him very
much because of what he, to this day,
calls "the look". It's hard for him to
explain exactly what "the look" was, he
says he only knew when she threw it his
way, whatever he was doing he had to
stop.
Albert's surrogate family was his
grandmother's cook and maid. "She was
away a lot raising money for the college
and she left me in their care. They were
very nice to me. I guess because she was
away so much I was a little spoiled by
my grandmother and by'them," he said.
When she was home her visitors
included some of the millionaire families
who spent the winter months in Florida.
"She knew the Gambles of Proctor and
Gamble, the Rockerfellers, The Mr. Qlds
of the Oldsmobile, and the Whites of
White sewing machines.
"They all came to our house.
Sometimes, they would send their yachts
down the Halifax River to the college
when they were entertaining. 'Mother
Dear' would load up the students and
they would go back to the mansions to
sing," he said.
In return many of the wealthy people
became benefactors of the college and
annually gave large sums of money.
And while his grandmother was a good
diplomat, an accomplished fundraiser
and quite comfortable rubbing shoulders
with the rich and famous, her skills
around the house, he said, were lacking.


"I don't believe I ever saw her so much
as boil a pot of water. She didn't cook,
she didn't drive, and she didn't sew.
Early on she had a horse and buggy and
she later took up riding a bicycle,"he
said.
It might have been top of the line foods
outside the Bethune household, but at
home the menu featured chicken every
day.
"Her favorite breakfast food was
smothered chicken and grits. She had
that every morning when she was at
home. There wasn't a day that went by
that we didn't have some kind of
chicken. We ate chicken seven days a
week. She occasionally liked fish and
sometimes we would have trout. That's
the only kind of fish I ever saw her eat,"
he said. For dessert she only liked vanilla
or strawberry ice cream. On rare
occasions, as a nightcap, she would have
a glass of Manashevitz's wine over
crushed ice.
When he was about twelve, as a gift,
she had carpenters convert a garage into
an apartment for him. "I was at that age
when I had friends coming by and we
would do the things young boys do, so it
was a place for me and my friends to go
so that we wouldn't be in the house. It
had everything, including a bathroom,"
he said.
In that same year, 1941, she had the
chauffer to teach him to drive. The
family car was always an Oldsmobile
and always a year old when she got it.
-Albert said that the man who owned
Oldsmobile gave her the car he had used
the previous year when the new model
came off the line.
There was a car in the garage but he
couldn't drive it even though he


managed to get a driver license at age 12.
"Back then in order to get a license all
you had to do was go out with a police
office and demonstrate that you could
drive and pass a written test. There were
no age restrictions," he said.
He may have had a license at twelve,
but he was eighteen before she allowed
him to drive her around. About that time,
he was ready for college.
"Everyone around the college knew me
and I was all set to enter school. I was
happy because I knew I was going to get
away with a lot because of 'Mother
dear', but she fooled me. Dr. Benjamin
Mays was the President of Morehouse
College in Atlanta. One day he and his
wife came to visit. It was a visit, like
many other visits the couple had made to
Daytona Beach," he said.
He didn't think anything of it until she
told him to pack his clothes because he
was going back to Atlanta with the
Mays'. "She got me away because she
felt the teachers at the college would not
make me live or learn up to my
potential,' he said.
Albert said growing up he never
thought of 'Mother Dear' as anyone
special. "She was my grandmother. She
was special to the rest of the world and
her accomplishments have been
chronicled in numerous books and
articles, but to me she was just
grandmother," he said.
He has written a book about her that is
due on bookshelves in May. The title of
the book is "Mary McLeod Bethune:
Miracle of the 20th Century".
"It's a very honest book. My
grandmother was like everybody else.
She got up, she got dressed and went to
work. She dated after she and my


grandfather divorced. She had a man in
her life for many years. She probably
would have married him had my father
not been so adamant against her getting
married again," he said.
The book, he said, will clear up some
lies and misconceptions about his
beloved 'Mother Dear'.
Much of this article was from the history of
Mary McLeod Bethune by her grandson, Albert
McLeod Bethune, Jr., a resident of Quincy.

Saints and Sequins
Valentine Banquet

The Pheobe McGee Women
Missionary Society sponsored a
very talented and exciting
Valentine Affair. The Valentine
Banquet was the 2nd Annual
Affair that has been given at
Greater Tanner Chapel A.M.E.
under the leadership of
Reverend Elizabeth E. Yates.
The dining hall was beautifully
decorated with hearts, balloons,
hanging silver mobiles, andele-
gant centerpieces for every
draped table.
The banquet was accompanied
by several great performers
including the Havana Middle
School 21st Century Dance
Team doing a Tribal Rendition
Dance; the Havana Elementary
Character and Modeling Club
presenting Africa on the
Runway, modeling African
attire.
The little girls were dynamic
with their modeling and they
were arranged from ages 4 to 10.
The Life Deliverance Ministries
Boys Drill Team was also
dynamic
doing their praise dance per-
formance.
Our program continued with
some very interesting and
inf'rim.iti c history of how other
couiitries celebrated the D<,\
called "'St. Valentines Day".
Those countries were China:
read by Miss Crystal Lewis,
Italy: read by Mrs. Lonita
Jackson, Germany: read by Ms.
Beryl Wood, America: read by
Mrs. Nekeisha Harris. The story


was told about all of these coun-
tries and how they celebrated
Valentines Day and the compar-
isons of how theirs are so differ-
ent from ours today. Thank God
for America!
The crowning of a 2006
Valentine King and Queen win-
ner completed the evening. The
young lady and young man were
chosen in a very special and
unique way and as winners they
were both presented $25.00 Gift
Cards.
Our thanks to our chairperson,
Ineta Singleton who gave much
of her time, energy, and efforts
working hard and her team
Lonita Jackson, Beryl Woods,
Mary Ivory, Robin Wood, Clara
Wood, Alicia Tucker, and the
President of the missionary soci-
ety Geraldine Rush.
Also Reverend Elizabeth E.
Yates for her support and efforts
in working with us. We also
thank each and every person
who supported our efforts by
attending and the parents who
came with the performers for.
May God bless each and every
one of you.

maybe the parents of the
children did not attend and they

to the Hardaway Baptist
Church.

buses are certainly not a new
idea in Gadsden County it
began about 75 years ago!


Around 1930,
Mr. Alec Presnell
of Hardaway built a
school bus which
he used to carry
children from
throughout
Hardaway to the
new consolidated
school at Mt.

now the facility of
Robert F. Munroe '
School.

"homemade"
school bus was
actually a truck .. 4
which had only a .
chassis and the
body was built by
the owner. It was
constructed in tongue and
groove fashion and had a
canvas type curtain on each side
which offered some protection
from the rain and windy cold

The seating was a board or tough one; bouncing along all

each side and in the center at every bus stop. The only
several boards were nailed paved highway in that area of
together so that the children the county was U.S. 90 and that
could sit back to back. was beyond the school. It was

The
families in
Hardaway

proud that
their friend
and
neighbor
had taken
the effort to
construct
such a
vehicle and
transport
their
children to
the new
school


located four
or five miles from home.
Mr. Presnell, as well as Mr.
Sam Smith, used their school
buses on Sunday to go around

Mrs. Amanda Eady, of Quincy,
daughter of the late Pierce
"Sonboy" and Betty Mae Rolax of
the Sawdust Community, shared
memories of her Dad being the
first Black bus driver in the
county. In 1945, he began by
transporting eight children who
were squeezed into a Nash
automobile from their homes in
Sawdust to Stevens High School
in Quincy. Several years later,


Mr. Rolax and others in the
community petitioned the School
Board for a bus. After a couple of
years, a school bus was obtained
and Mr. Rolax was appointed as
the first Black county bus driver.
The full story previously appeared
in the January 26, 2006 issue of
the Gadsden County Times.
Byron Clark of Tallahassee &
formerly of Hardaway, shared a
photograph as well as his vivid
description of the school bus
which Alec Presnell of Hardaway
built around 1930. Mr. Presnell
picked up the children throughout
the Hardaway community and
transported them to the new
consolidated school at Mt.
Pleasant, which is the present
facility of Robert F. Munroe
School. Among the 28 people


attending the meeting was two of
Mr. Presnell's grandchildren,
Lynda Presnell Dean and James
Harold Thompson, both of whom
are Society members, and Mr.
Presnell's great grandson, James
Thompson.
Mr. Clark also shared his
memories of the 1930s era school
bus which Sam Smith of the Flat
Creek area drove each day to the
Greensboro School. His older
sons, Sam, Ernest,. and Thomas,
took their turns driving the bus.
Mr. Smith's grandson, Thomas B.
"Tommy" Smith, was in
attendance at this meeting.
Numerous photographs of old
country schools were reviewed
and identification of each is a
project which the Society will be
striving to complete during the


coming months. Further
information as to details for your
assistance will be forthcoming.
Lively discussions were held as
everyone enjoyed reminiscing
about the long ago times of
attending public schools in the
county as well as various instances
concerning those long daily school
bus rides.
The Society meets at 3:00 p.m.
on the third Sunday afternoon of
each month in Gardner Hall
(diagonally across from the First
Baptist Church) in Greensboro.
Everyone who is interested in
learning more about western
Gadsden County and its important
historical impact to North Florida
and the surrounding area is
cordially invited to attend these
meetings.

Bethune
Continued frim Pag 1I
and ultimately that of her race,
was the catalyst behind the
remarkable life of Bethune.
Mary Jane McLeod was born
July 10, 1875 in Maysville, SC.
She was the 15th of 17 children
born to former slaves, Mr. and
Mrs. Samuel McLeod. Life was
hard, and in addition to farm labor,
Mary helped her mother wash and
iron for white families in the area.
The unkind words of a white
child, to whose home Mary had
gone with her mother to deliver
laundry, sparked an undying
desire in her to learn. When Mary'
picked up a book while waiting
for her mother, the child said,
"You don't know how to read,
give me that book."
The words stung but ihe truth
was she couldn't read. She wanted
to read but it seemed that the only
thing in her future was a life of
picking cotton.
That all changed when, at age
eleven, a missionary came into the
field and asked if the McLeod's
would allow one of dicir childieri
to .:it'atj id. iat. u.,u.
Church's Missionary School five
miles away. Because she had
demonstrated early on a desire to
learn, Mary was selected.
Each day, rain or shine, she
walked five miles to and from
school. She learned to "read and
completed the sixth grade, which
was the highest level at the school.
Sadly, with her new-found
knowledge, she had to return to
the cotton fields, but not for long.
A white teacher and dressmaker
from Colorado volunteered pay
for one child from the missionary
school to attend high school. Mary
was selected and soon enrolled at
Scotia Seminary.


The officers and members of the
Gadsden County Men of Action would
like to cordially invite the public to
attend and help celebrate the
accomplishments of these outstanding
individuals.
Receiving the awards will be
(pictured alphabetically from top left):
Marilyn Anderson (education), Rev.
George T. Barkely (religion), Rev.
Maruice Evans (business), Dr. Carla
Holloman (medical), Robert Jackson
(sports), Nora James (lifetime
achievement)" and Morris Young
(public service/political).


After gradtiation she had the
opportunity to enter the Moody
Bible Institute of Chicago. As the
only Black student enrolled at the
school, she took the opportunity to
do missionary work in the ghettos
of Chicago.
Thinking that missionary work
was her calling, .she applied for a
teaching position as a missionary
in Africa.
"Sorry, there are no more
openings for Negro missionaries
in Africa at this time," she was
told. Undaunted, she decided to
return to the south and do
missionary work.
In 1898 in Augusta, GA, she met
and married Albertus Bethune
while a missionary and teacher. In
1899, the couple had one son and
they named him Albert McLeod
Bethune.
As a missionary she saw first
hand that the plight of black
women was not an easy one.
Education, she felt, was the way
for Black women to advance. That
led to her desire to establish a
school for little black girls where
they could learn to read and write
and e"'- and cook. The Bethunes
,. '.oojnL'n. d to Palatka where she
continued teaching: and her
missionary work.
One day a minister named
Uggams (who is the great-great-
grandfather of legendary
entertainer Leslie Uggams) told
her that there was no school for
black children in Daytona Beach.
He urged her to leave Palatka,
which already had a school, and
start one in Daytona Beach.
Uggams gave her a little bell to
ring on the opening of school.
On Oct. 3, 1904 with five little
girls and her son, she opened the
Daytona Literacy and Industrial
School for training Negro girls.
The school was a one room cabin


r r ~ N. ~ C m r -N T \ -A- ,sr7 1


and the chairs were fruit crates.
Her desk was a barrel turned
upside down. All she had when
she started the school was $1.50,
but she had realized her dream of
starting her own school. They
started the day off with the 23rd
Psalm and sang "Leaning On the
Everlasting Arms."
She was discouraged often. On
more than one occasion she heard
from whites that "negroes didn't
need no education to become
maids and housekeepers." Her
answer was always, "Let me teach
them to read and write so they can
become better maids and
housekeepers." It worked.
But to operate the school she
realized early on that she needed
money. The small tuition the
students were required to pay
wasn't nearly enough. If the
school was going to survive she
had to expand. In 1923 thei school
merged with Jacksonville's
Cookman Institute for Boys. In
1931 the school became affiliated
with the United Methodist Church
and the name was changed to
Bethune-Cookman College.
Still, funds remained low;.and.top
offset mounting costs, The ,il.i:,
Varsity Quartet along with Nilr-
Bethune travelled all over the
county to raise money. Along the
way they also made a lot of
friends for the college. One year
they brought in $15,000 from a
singing tour which took them to
Carnagie Hall in New York City
and the Symphony Hall in Boston.
The needs of the college came
first, but that did not stop Bethune
from working on social issues,
including Black voter registration.
In a attempt to frighten her and
other Blacks from the polls, the
Ku Klux Klan staged a night
parade, turning off all of the
outdoor lights around the school.

She refused to be intimidated and
turned the lights back on. When
they encircled the school, they did
not find students and teachers
cowering in fear, they found the
children in choir practice.
During the next election, over
100 Blacks voted despite a'oll tax
and the Klan-backed candidate for
mayor was defeated.
Through the years Bethune was
building a steady reputation as a
diplomat, a strategist, and a
woman of uncommon courage and
knowledge.
*She was appointed one of the
members of the San Francisco
Conference, the group that set up
the United Nations.
*President Harry Truman
appointed her as a delegate to
Liberia for the inauguration of
President Tubman.
*President Roosevelt appointed
her to the National Advisory
Committee of the National Youth
Administration. She was later
appointed National Director of
Negro Affairs.
One one occasion, President
Roosevelt called her to the White
House and said: "Mrs. Bethune, I
... l..l not I ... Th, ie .|L :1--. ,, ,. /
IIuin on !m, iiu1iId regarding our
Negro citizenry that I had to
discuss them with you. I need your
help and counsel."
It was through her association
with President Roosevelt that she
became close friends with Eleanor
Roosevelt, who visited her in


Daytona Beach on several
occasions. The two worked
together on affairs relating to
women.
*She was appointed to the
selection board of the National
Selection Committee of the WAC.
*She organized. the National
Beautician's Association.
Bethune was advisor to five
Presidents and is considered one
of the most effective and dynamic
leaders of the 20th century.
Throughout it all she maintained a
sense of humor. In an era when
she walked with presidents, she.
still had to ride in the segregated
car of trains. One day a conductor,
it an effort to degrade her referred
to her as "auntie." She looked at
him in surprise and asked "which
one of my sister's sons are you,
John or Joe?"
She died on May 18, 1955 in
Daytona Beach. She is buried on
the grounds of the college she
founded and nourished. In her
Last Will and Testament, she
wrote:
"I leave you love. I leave you
hope. I leave you the challenge of
developing confidence in one
another. I leave you the-thirst for,
education. I leave you respect for
the use of Power. I leave you faith.
I leave you racial dignity. I leave
you a desire to live harmoniously
with your fellow man. I leave you
finally, a responsibility to our
young people."

24 Gadsden County Times February 23, 2006


Dear Gadsden, Liberty & Calhoun i
County Residents,
Three years ago I obtained my Florida
Dealer's License due to the frustration of
shopping for a used car. The folowinu
three things made car shopping a big
headache for me:
*Haggling for the best price
*Having to 6 cO P with $2000 to
$ if30for a downPmaYrfient. 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 "Loan
Ualue", 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 Prof-
it and you get a great deal!
The best part is we have family on the
lot, NOTJiLGH PRESSURE SALES PEOPLE.
If you' do'1 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.
