such a problem that the school board
devoted a workshop Tuesday afternoon to
discussing how to curtail it.
"We need the school board to strengthen
the policy for students who fight all the
time," said Dr. James Brown, in opening
remarks to the board. He was there to
discuss a pilot program to address fighting.
The document's working title is "Fight
Intervention Program."

While no one presented statistics on just
how many fights occur at schools, at least
one school resource officer associated with
East Gadsden High School said
altercations are frequent.
One day last week, two fights started off
the day. "It was a case of two girls who got
into a quarrel with a little pushing and
shoving and two boys had a fight. But
we've straightened it all out, and it's under

NAACP request stalls WGHS construction


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
The construction,of West Gadsden High
School has hit another snag. Tuesday night
during the regular meeting of the board of
county commissioners a request for
approval for the preliminary site plan was
tabled.
"This means we can't go forward," said a
clearly disappointed Wayne Shepard,
director of facilities for the school district.
It will be at least two weeks and maybe
more before the first shovel full of dirt is
turned to begin construction on the new


WGHS.
Things seemed all set for approval when
Sam Hawkins, president of the Gadsden
County branch of the National Association
for the Advancement of Colored People
(NAACP), went to the podium to speak in
opposition to the request for approval of
the site plan.
"We (NAACP) have one problem with
this site: the traffic on Highway 12. A
catwalk would eliminate the danger of a
child getting hurt," Hawkins said. A
catwalk is an elevated structure much like
an enclosed sidewalk that would span the
width of the street. The plan is to move


students currently at Greensboro
Elementary School to what is now WGHS.
High school students would occupy the
new school.
Hawkins said he fears for the safety of
students who will go back and forth across
the street to be with older or younger
siblings.
"I have been a teacher for a long time
and I know those kids will be running back
and forth across the street. I cannot support
this (without the catwalk)," said
Commissioner Brenda Holt.
Commissioner Eugene Lamb wanted to
allow the project to move forward and


address the catwalk issue later. His motion
died from lack of a second before
Commissioner Derrick Price asked to table
the matter.
Dan Rutherford, representing the
engineering firm for the site said he
appreciated Hawkins' concern. "That's
extremely expensive and the budget can't
afford to put in a catwalk. The school
board has said it will provide buses,"
Rutherford said. He said the construction
of a catwalk will take away money needed
for school construction.

Doctor: we

need hospital

reopened

by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

Dr. Chookiert Emko, M.D., gave
the board of county commissioners
a petition with 324 signatures
supporting the re-opening of
Gadsden Community Hospital.
"We have a lot of problems here.
Healthcare is going downhill," he
said.
He said he is also concerned
about the livelihood of employees
whose unemployment checks are
about to run out. "These people do
not want to sit at home and get
unemployment checks, they want
to work," he said, adding, "we
have a big bill from Tallahassee
Memorial Hospital for their
emergency room and for the
ambulance service going back and
forth all day, gas costs $2.30 a
gallon now."
While it is alright to use TMH,
Emko said there is pride in being


self-sufficient. We need TMH but
not 100 percent," he said.
Finally, touching on economics,
he told commissioners that while
they sit and talk about economic
development and jobs, no
company or business will relocate
here if we have no way of taking
care of their sick and injured.
Chastine Newsome was not so
polite. "I'm angry about what's
going on. You all have put the
people last. I call it genocide. I will
lay my body across that front door
until something is done about
opening the hospital," she said,
pointing toward the doors of the
county commissioners meeting
room.
"People are dying whether you
believe me or not. I think about the
children with asthma, I think about
the person with a heart condition,
people with AIDS who are in pain,
and people with sickle cell. I'm
going to hold you all to it (re-
opening GCH) if I have to lay
down and bring other people with
me. They will have to handcuff me
and carry me away," she said.
"We all want the hospital open as
quickly as possible. We're working
diligently to get it open. There are
some things that we are doing but

we can't talk about it," said
Commissioner Brenda Holt.
In other matters:
* Commissioners will hold a
retreat Friday morning to discuss
protocol during meetings and other
issues. The public is invited.
* The Tourist Development
Council asked commissioners to
revisit the county's ordinance on
bill boards. A workshop will be set
to discuss the pros and cons.
* A check for $750,000 was
presented by the Department of
Community Affairs for housing
rehabilitation in the county. The
award brings the total to more than
$6 million to the county from DCA
over the past eight years.
* Approved a partnership with
the Talquin Bass Association for
the 28th Annual Lake Talquin
Open. The county's Recreation
and Parks Department will help
with publicizing the event.
* Conceptual approval was
granted for Comfort Creek Phase I
and I subdivision for a 102 unit
development near Lake Talquin.
The lots are expected to sell for
upwards of $100,000 each.
* Special exemption was granted
to Progress Energy for the Atwater
Substation.


There was a famous person that
said, "but while we are here, let
the best of us help the rest of us."
I have had the best help me and
now it is my turn to help others.
My name is Glen Russ and I
am announcing my candidacy for
Quincy City Commissioner
District 3. My experiences in City
government will help bring the
City of Quincy back to a
Premiere City.
Today, our government faces
many dilemmas; financial
problems, high utilities bills,
under staffed police officers, low
morale for city employees, poor
leadership. The list goes on and
on. I will bring about changes in
our government that will
eliminate the dilemmas fore-
mention.
We must bring in experience
people to operate our Finance
Department. This person must be
familiar and have experience with
finance in City government. In
order to elminiate high utilities
bills, we must be completive
when buying fuel oil and
electricity for the city customers.
There need to be an investigation


School

clarifies

number

of teachers

With the number of teachers
employed by the Gadsden
County School District ques-
tioned at last week's school
board meeting, the district
offered the following clarifica-
tion:
There are two new teaching
positions in the district that were
filled this past month. Both are
new classroom positions at St.
John Elementary, according to
Dianna Decker, Director of
SPersonnel for the district. Those
new positions allowed the dis-
trict to meet state class size
requirements.
She also explained that other
new hires appeared on the list
for the following reasons:
One is a grant-funded math
coach, the:.only position. ques-;
tioned that does not have direct
student contact. This position
requires that the coach work
directly with teachers to
improve student performance.
One new hire was a former
teacher who had retired and
returned to work after the
required 30-days out and had to
be listed as a new employee.
The rest, she said, were replace-
ment teachers hired to fill
vacant positions.
She further explained that all
new hires are listed each month
for the board, even though they
may be filling existing vacan-
cies.

into the police department to
determine why we are losing so
many officers. The problem
should be eliminated. Employee
Morales are low due to the fact
that the Human Resource
Department needs to be more
customer-friendly.
I am a firm believer that leaders
should lead by example. In my
opinion some of the department
heads need additional training in
their respective fields.
In order to keep up with the
demands of our citizens, leaders
must be creative, innovative, and
proactive. I do not see these
characteristic in our leaders. They
must be trained.
Here are my goals, when
elected. I promise to you that I
will work constantly to: support
better wages for our City
employees, work with the City
Manager to make sure our budget
is balanced, work better with the
CRA to redevelop and revitalize
our city, work better with our
state legislators to make sure
small towns like ours are treated
fairly in the state budget and
work better with our legislators to

percent. My door will always be
open to you. Thank you for your
time.

Women's concert at Spanish Moss


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
Next Saturday, for the first
time in this area, a women's
music festival will be held.
Spanish Moss Farm, at the end
of Ball Farm Road northeast of
Quincy, will be the site of the
concert called "Women Rock."
"This is regional music
festival designed to celebrate
the strength, creativity, humor,
beauty and power women bring
to their families, communities
and the world," said Davida
Silverman, special projects
coordinator for Refuge House,
Inc., concert sponsors.
As a Refuge House
fundraiser, "Women Rock" will
benefit the programs Refuge
House provides for battered
women, their children, and
sexual assault survivors. The


festival is also a way to attract a
younger audience to the
struggle to end violence against
women and to form valuable
networks among community
groups, according to Silverman.
The day-long event begins at
11 a.m. Saturday, March 18,
and ends at 2 a.m., March 19.
Nearly 1,000 people are
expected to attend from as far
away as Tampa and Atlanta.
The performers will include
nationally known artists and
local groups. The headliners
inlcude:
Holly Near, whose music has
received critical acclaim for its
empowering messages and
melodic tunes. She was
awarded Woman of the Year by
Ms. magazine and was
nominated for "1000 Women
for the Nobel Peace Prize 2005"
for her commitment to social


change. Near has performed
with Pete Seeger, Bonnie Raitt
and Mercedes Sosa, to name a
few.
Dar Williams' musical claim
to fame is derived from her
work as a "folk pop" artist. Her
style has been compared to that
of Joan Baez and Joni Mitchell.
Her rise to stardom began when
she opened for Baez during a
tour and she as since released
five solo albums.
Alix Olson is an
internationally touring spoken
word artist who is known for
her "slamming" technique,
witty use of language and
political topics. She was once
featured on the cover of Ms.
magazine. Olson has been
praised by activist and is
admired by her peers. She was a
performer on Def Comedy Jam,
the. critically acclaimed


television show produced by
Russell Simmons.
Several local bands and
artists will also perform. "The
concert is a way for everyone to
gather and listen to the voices
of women and discover
different types of music, spoken
word, and art. A variety of food
will be provided by different
vendors," said Silverman.
Here is the performance line-
up:
Chris Pureka, 4 p.m. to 4:45
p.m.; Dar Williams, 5 p.m.
to 6:30 p.m.; Holly Near,
7:30 p.m. to 9 p.m.
Local and regional bands, 10
p.m. to 11:30 p.m.; Alix Olson,
12 midnight to 1 a.m.
Other artists to perform include
Doria Roberts, Chris Pureka,
redboy, Carrie Hamby,
the aUdience, CARMITA,
sassafrass, Justros, and hBethnay


Cavan. "Women Rock" is a rain
or shine show.
Tickets are $35 each in
advance, $50 each at the gate,
and $200 for deluxe tickets
which includes a reserved seat
at a shaded table with a picnic
dinner. Tickets can be
purchased by phone at
(850)922-6062 or in person at
the Refuge House Thrift Store
or online at
www.womenrockbenefit.org.
All proceeds from the
concert will benefit Refuge
House which serves eight
counties in north Florida,
including Gadsden.
The services include an
emergency shelter, 24-hour
crisis hotline, individual and
group counseling, injunction
assistance and courthouse
program, children's counseling,
child care, case management,
hospital crisis intervention and
medical treatment for victims of
domestic violence and child
abuse, as well as other types of


advocacy or services the client
might need.
According to information
released by the Refuge House,
in the fiscal year 2004/2005 the
organization provided safe
shelter for 556 women and
children, answered 3,133
hotline calls, assisted 998
clients through the courtroom
program, provided 2,379 clients
with domestic violence
counseling and assisted over
400 people through the sexual
violence program.
"We hope that Gadsden
County will wholeheartedly
support and embrace this
concert. The proceeds from this
concert will also benefit the
people here who seek our
services," said Carnell Jones,
Gadsden County's Refuge
House coordinator.
The concert is also endorsed
by the Gadsden County
Domestic and Sexual Violence
Task Force.

Project Graduation 2006


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

Graduation night is one of
the happiest nights in the lives
of thousands of teenagers
throughout America. Gadsden
County is no different. On
May 18, when Dr. William
Harvey, principal at East
Gadsden High School,
congratulates the Class of
2006, blue and white caps will
fly.
What happens after that is
what has some parents of
graduating seniors concerned.
That's how Project
Graduation 2006 evolved. "We
were looking for something for
the kids that would be safe and
chemical free," said Veronica
Reed, one of the parent
organizers for the all night
event.
The idea is not new. For
several years other schools in
surrounding areas have
sponsored similar activities
geared toward graduating
seniors. Reed said it a healthy
and safe way to celebrate.
But there ,is a problem.
While many of the students
have embraced the idea and


have participated in fundraisers
since last summer, the same
cannot be said for parents.
"We have not been able to get
the parents to participate.
There are about 150 seniors
and we have about 10 parents
that actively support the
project," Reed said. Parents are
also responsible for Class
Night and the Bacculaurate
programs. And, according to
Reed, parents aren't showing
much interest in those events
either.
More students, however, are
beginning to show excitement
about Project Graduation.
Reed said that students
showed little interest at first
because they wanted to be able
to come and go throughout the
night. "The whole purpose was
to keep them in a secure
environment all night. We
have planned games, activities,
music with an all-night DJ,
giveaways, and prizes to keep
them entertained through the
night. They will
have from 10 p.m. to midnight
to get there and they will not
be allowed to leave until 6
a.m.," Reed said.
The Quincy Conference


Center will be the site of the
event. "We are providing a?
drug and alcohol free'
environment for our seniors to
celebrate their high school'
years.
If they have an alternative,
they may not choose to go to
clubs or house parties where
there are no controls," she said..
Organizers are also looking
for donations for door prizes.
They are asking businesses and.
individuals to contribute either
prizes or cash donations.

q. ... .. e. Eugene Lamb Jr. Foundation receives

B.W. Roberts honored at QPD donation from Emerald Coast R.V.


The family of retired Quincy police officer B.W. Roberts gave the Quincy police department a plaque and
photo of Roberts to commemorate his 26 years of service to the Quincy community. Roberts was the first
African-American police officer hired by the department. He started October 15, 1955 and retired May 7,
1976. The plaque states that Roberts worked unselfishly during his career with the Quincy Police department
to secure peace, tranquility and safety in the community and to enforce the laws for the general benefit of the
entire city. Roberts passed away in October of 1992. Several years ago the former South Street in Quincy was
renamed in honor of Roberts. Pictured left to right are his family, Mrs. B.W. (Mary) Roberts, Betty James,
Pearl Scott, and Walter Roberts.

PINIONS


Comments
about Midway


Dear Editor,

I have read a number of
articles in recent issues of the
Gadsden County Times
quoting comments made by
County Commission Chair
Dixon and Commissioner
Holt. I do not understand why
they continue to say things
that are factually not true
about Midway.
; It is true that the City of
Midway is contracting with
the Gadsden County Sheriff's
Department for the provision
of additional law enforcement
protection for the City.
These officers are in addition
to the normal zone patrol in
the Midway area. This role
was first envisioned by
Midway Mayor Pro-Tem Ella
Barber in order to find a way
to get some additional police
protection for Midway
residents without the expense
of creating a new police
department. What she did
was right and makes sense
because it does not create a
new department with
buildings, cars, and other
capital costs necessary to run
a department, but allows all of
the dollars to be spent directly
on police protection.
Ms. Barber negotiated the
Original contract with the
Sheriff and a second officer
rias added for this fiscal year.
The City of Midway pays
$100,000.00 per year for the
twvo officers. I do not believe

Our letter policy:

that the "hourly rate" we pay
is only for the officers, as
stated by Mr. Dixon, unless
they are paid $50,000.00 each
per year. We pay $25.00 per
hour which was the negotiated
price between the City and the
Sheriff's Department.
It is also true that the City
contracts with Gadsden
County Public Works
Department for some
roadwork, but it is not true
that we don't pay for it. The
County sets the hourly rate for
the equipment, we don't.
The work that is currently
being done on Knight Road
by the County is costing the
City $14,800, as part of a
CDBG grant. It is not free
work being done by the
County Public Works
Department.
The second issue is the fire
protection issue that was
stated by Ms. Holt. There are
currently 25 new fire hydrants
in place and more will be
added in the Rustling Pines
Subdivision once it is
completed. Currently, with
4.6 miles of new road
construction in Rustling Pines
Subdivision (built to Florida
DOT specifications, by the
way) that is one fire hydrant
every 971 feet. The density,
by the way, nets out to about
2 units per acre after all of the
roads, rights-of-way and
easements are in place, not
four units per acre.
Ms. Holt continues to state
that over 3,000 new homes
will be constructed in
Midway. I do not know
where she gets her figures.
The approved subdivision in
Midway are: Rustling Pines -
400 units; Orion's Pointe -
600 units; and Monroe Creek
- approximately 150 units.
There was another
subdivision that received
preliminary approval,
however, since we were
unable to get a new public


railroad crossing without
closing an existing public
railroad crossing, that
development probably will
not occur.
It is true that we do not
have sanitary sewer in the
residential areas of Midway,
however, unlike some of the
other municipalities in
Gadsden County, the City
does not own a sanitary sewer
system and must rely on
Talquin Electric Coop to
.provide that service. We are
working with them to get a
force main under the
Interstate which not only
could serve new residential
development, but eventually
all of the residents of
Midway. We are also
looking at other innovative
ways of providing sanitary
sewer. People need to
understand that a sanitary
sewer system comes with a
cost. We are also looking at
sewer impact fees and perhaps
a whole range of impact fees,
which, if approved and
adopted, will be implemented
and accounted for in
accordance with any State law
and existing case law,
however, people need to
understand that any impact
fee will increase the cost of
housing, which is barely
affordable for a lot of people
right now.
Lastly, there will be ample
water service to the area as
the developer has brought a
twelve inch line under the
Interstate to serve that area.
Not only will it serve the new
subdivisions, but it will tie
back into the existing lines
throughout the City and
increase pressure City-wide
and tie back into an 8 inch
line that is currently in place.
Therefore,
the entire City benefits from
the new water lines.

SBiAunt Mae had a good life




Aunt Mae had a good life


It is always hard to lose a
loved one, no matter the
circumstances.
My aunt Ola Mae
O'Brian, my mothers oldest
sister, passed away two
weeks ago. She would have
been a hundred years old
had she lived three more
weeks. Quite an
accomplishment within itself
I think.
She was living in a
nursing home in Mt. Dora,
in central Florida, when her
life ended.
Aunt Mae was a remarkable
person, she had a good life
with a lot of friends and
family that loved her. Her
life was not without its ups.
and downs, but for the most
part she managed well.
I remember about ten
years ago she and I were
talking about growing old
and all of the aches and
pains that accompany you
over the years. Aunt Mae
told me then that had she
known she was going to live
this long she would have
certainly taken better care of
herself. I don't know what
she did to reach that age, but
I told her then and still
believe now that whatever
she did, it worked.
At Aunt Mae's memorial
service, her granddaughter
Amy spoke about her
grandmother. She talked
about her love and respect
for her and how important
she had been to her over the
years.
A couple of years ago I
visited her in the nursing
home. She and I talked for a
long time about the family,
kids and grandkids. She was
for the most part the last
connection to my mother I
had and I could see so much
of my mother in her.
She loved to play the
piano and gave me a little
mini-concert in the atrium of
the nursing home. Before
she finished the first song,
we had gathered a crowd. By
the time we finished, almost
all of the nursing home
residents that were mobile
were sitting in the room with
us. She had learned as a


young girl to play and had
never lost the knack. She
played mostly by ear, but
grew up in the era of the old
"whole note" style. It
sounded mighty good to me.
Aunt Mae was confined
to a wheel chair, but that did
not slow her down when it
came to getting around.
Especially when it was time
to play for church service.
She played for the nursing
home services up until three
weeks before she passed
away.
There was a lady that
came to the memorial
service that I met who knew
Aunt Mae through the
nursing home. She had
volunteered when her
mother was in the home and
stayed on after her mother
passed away. She had
become friends with Aunt
Mae.
.The lady was there to pay
tribute to Aunt Mae, she
said. The residents and staff
at the nursing home, she
said, loved Aunt Mae. Aunt
Mae had befriended
everyone, the lady said.
She too, had asked Aunt
Mae what had contributed to
her long life. Aunt Mae
responded that she ate what
she wanted, never exercised,
never drank, smoked or
wore pants.
Aunt Mae was a reader:
she has read thousands of
books over the years, that
may have been a factor over
the years. She also
volunteered some of her
time in her younger days.
But, most importantly I
think, Aunt Mae had a sense
of humor. She liked a good
joke and could tell some
herself. I remember many
family gatherings when she
and her siblings would sit
around and tell jokes and
laugh. Those were good
days for me as well.
Aunt Mae could be the brunt
of a joke.
As you know by now my
brother Eddie had a speech
impediment growing up and
I was his best translator.
On one of those times
when I wasn't around Eddie


took it uponi himself to call
Aunt Mae by her first name.
That was a no-no for a child
to begin with, it was either
Mr, Mrs, Miss, Aunt, or
Uncle. You were never to
call an adult by a first name.
Eddie had heard the
adults calling her Ola Mae
and thought he would try it.
Well, Eddie's attempt at Ola
Mae came out "Old Maid"
instead.
Aunt Mae was livid and
told Eddie that he was not to
call her "Old Maid" again.
Of course without me
around to defuse the
situation it escalated into a
.near spanking for Eddie.
Over the years that story
has brought about a lot of
laughs. But, at the time
Eddie was in a heap of
trouble. He made it even
worse every time he opened
his mouth to explain what he
was saying, because Ola
Mae still came out as Old
Maid.
Needless to say, Eddie
called her Aunt Mae from
that point on.
As I sat in the memorial
service I thought about
growing up and Aunt Mae. I
looked around the room and
saw relatives and friends that
knew her.
Quite an accomplishment
for someone who has
outlived 99 percent of their
peers.
When it is all said and
done, that is an
accomplishment itself, to be
important in someone else's
life.
She had a good life and
lived a long time. She
was a good person who
loved God and loved life.
To live to nearly 100 and
have that as a legacy says a
lot about her character. She
will be missed, but I believe
she is now home with her
sisters, brother, mother and
father and all of those who
have gone before her.
Just a big ol' family
reunion.
And most importantly she
is no longer bound to a
wheel chair or an aging
body.

Everyone knows that
teaching is not an easy job.
Even for those who have
been at it for years. But for a
new teacher, it must
sometimes seem
overwhelming.
Jennifer Seaman, the 2006
Rookie Teacher of the Year,
hasn't let anything slow her
down. "She has shown
enthusiasm, tenacity, and
determination for. her job by
motivating her students to
always try to do their best. Her
engaging delivery of the
content areas and the energy
she exhibits only encourages,
captivates and motivates the
most reluctant student," said
Lisa Robinson, assistant
principal at Stewart Street
Elementary School, where
Seaman has taught for the past
two years.
The third grade teacher said
her teaching philosophy is
simple. "All children have the
capacity to learn and I, as the
educator, must ensure that the
environment is one that
promotes learning. It is my job
to find- the instructional
strategies that not only engage
the students but provide them
with numerous ways to
achieve mastery," she said.
She is constantly looking
for other ways to motivate her
students. She has a mini-
library in the classroom with
books of all levels. "This is
important so that no matter the
child's reading level they can

ray, left and school superintendent Reginald James.


go to the reading area and find
a book to read. Children also
enjoy reading more when they
are able to choose the story
they want to read," she said.
Seaman also uses other
sources as teaching tools such
as the Weekly Reader for
Social Studies and the
newspaper. "Both of these
provide another source of
information such as reading
about far away places, local
events, world news, sports,
music and other topics," she
said.
James Ray, principal,
applauded Seaman for the way
she combines traditional and
creative methods of teaching.
He calls her an asset to the


school. "She is a very
dedicated teacher and her work
ethics are superb," Ray said, in
recommending her for the
honor.
While Seaman was starting
her teaching career, she found
herself on another important
mission and required her to put
teaching on hold: Motherhood.
"Just recently, Mrs. Seaman
was out on maternity leave.
During that time, she
constantly kept in touch with
her students and the substitute
teacher. She proved to her
students and parents that she is
sincere about their education.
Her absence during her
maternity leave was greatly
noticed. Upon her return, the

PREMIERR BANI


Dorothy Lee Fields, School-Related Employee of the Year, center,
is shown with Havana elementary principal Elizebeth Turner, left
and Superintendant Reginald James


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

For the past 32 years
Dorothy Lee Fields has been an
employee with the Gadsden
County School District at
Havana Elementary School.
This year she was named
School-Related Employee of
the Year. The honor is given an
individual who works at a
school but is not a member of
the instructional or
administrative staff.
Fields, in her capacity as
educational paraprofessional, is
responsible for assisting
students in the computer lab.
She provides weekly and
quarterly reports for teachers,
the administration, and the
district. She also performs
clerical duties and makes sure
equipment and software are
operated properly.
"I can count on Mrs. Fields
to keep the teachers and
administrators abreast of the
progress students are making in
the computer lab because she
realizes the importance of data
analysis and its role in student
achievement. She is always on
the lookout for opportunities to
serve," wrote Reginald James,
superintendent of schools, in
his letter to the Florida
Department of Education
recommending Fields for the
honor.
Elizabeth Turner, principal
of Havana Elementary School,
praised Fields for her computer
lab work. "She is constantly
monitoring to see what
students are doing and
providing assistance. She has
an incentive board that
encourages student to always
strive to do their best," Turner
said.
She described Fields as


dependable, tireless,
responsible and professional.
Whether she is working with
students or, serving as the
contact person for the Gadsden
Educational Staff Professional
Association, Turner said she
doesn't have to worry about
her task performance.
"I am happy that she has
received this type of
recognition from her co-
workers,"Turner said.
The members of the
committee that recommended
Fields complimented her on
her campus presence. "Mrs.
Fields enriches this campus by
her innovative involvement in
school functions where she
provides valuable input. She
assists with the production .and
implementation of the Honors
Porgrams, Black History
events, Havana Elementary
King and Queen day, parent
enrichment night, FCAT rally,
and the school Hospitality
Club."
As a member of the Havana
community, she knows many
of the parents of the students
she comes into contact with
daily. "Mrs. Fields is able to
communicate with parents in
such a way that even the most
infuriated parent becomes more
reasonable to discuss the issues
at hand. She works with
parents in the community and
in the church where she advises
them on the rules and
regulations of the school
system and informs them of
ways they can better meet the
needs of their children," the
committee wrote in its letter of
recommendation.
Throughout the years, Fields
has received many awards and
recognition from the school
district. Some of them include:

A Woman in the Fire


With the many difficult problems our government face on a daily bases there aren't many folks, espe-
cially women that are up to the challenges that are in government today. One reason for this is because
the majority of people think the government can solve all their problems. It is true that government has
its role but it cannot solve all of life's problems, therefore when a woman steps into the fire of govern-
ment having proven herself worthy, she should be commend. It is my solemn opinion that
Commissioner Holt has done an outstanding job for Gadsden County and its citizens. I'm sure when she
sought the office of county commissioner she knew it wouldn't be a cake walk, nevertheless one could
always find her in the line of fire. She has never gone missing in action or shied away form difficult
issues that came down the pipeline on Tuesday Nights. But rather faced them head on with an open
mine. One didn't have to retrieve a map to find out where she stood on any of the issues. For certain
she hasn't pleased everyone and neither will anyone else in government. If you want to find out whether
a representative is committed to the office in which he/she holds just wait until dark days comes into
their- lives. When Commissioner Holt's son passed away it took me and others to convince her not to
attend the upcoming county commission meeting. It's beyond my imagination why she would even con-
sider going to the meeting that night. Perhaps it was to take the present situation off her mind or could
it be her loyalty to the people of this county, you decide. Government may never bring clarity to many
issues that it faces daily, but one thing is clear Commissioner Holt is not intimidated by fire.


Thanks for your encouraging words and spiritual support signed Pastor John Battles. 442-4684

Shorter 'not guilty' of drug sale


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
A Gadsden County jury last week found Delvin
Shorter not guilty of possession of cocaine with
intent to sell. Dennis Boothe, Shorter's attorney,
tried to get the case dismissed based on what he said
was the state's failure to prove its case.
"He (Inv. Matt Rowan) never saw the transaction,
the confidential informant said she bought three


pieces of cocaine and we only have two pieces in
evidence," Boothe argued.
He also questioned the credibility of the
confidential informant after she admitted on the
witness stand that she has worked undercover in the
past for which she was paid $60. With that money,
she said, she purchased crack cocaine and consumed
it.
He said his client not only deserved to be found
not guilty but that he was owed an apology.


Havana man faces sex charges


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
A 51-year-old Havana man was arrested last week
by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement in
connection with an investigation into sexual
offenses. Dennis Tallman was arrested at his home
on Kathy Drive on charges of sexual battery and
lewd and lascivious acts on a child under the age of


12 and showing obscene videos or movies to a
minor.
All of the charges are felonies, according to
FDLE. Tallman was taken to the Gadsden County
Jail where he is being held without bail. The
investigation began after a man started chatting
online with an undercover agent. The investigation
established that Tallman had been sexually abusing
a child for the past several months.


March of Dimes kicks off campaign


Over 50 people gathered early
February 28 in Quincy to raise a
collective voice for the tiniest,
most fragile people in Gadsden
County.
Team captains from across the
county attended the March of
Dimes annual kick-off breakfast
to get energized for this year's
Gadsden County WalkAmerica to
be held on Saturday, April 29 on
the courthouse square.
It is all about saving babies
from birth defects and lowering
Gadsden's high infant mortality
rate, David Campbell, director of
the Northwest Florida chapter of
the March of Dimes, told the
crowd. "We are working hard to
turn that around."
Standing in for Sheriff Morris
Young, this year's honorary
chairman for WalkAmerica, was
Major Shawn Wood. "Children
are at the forefront with Sheriff
Young," Wood said. While
Sheriff Young could not make the
event, Wood added, 16 members
of the sheriff's department
attended the breakfast to show
their support and their
department's commitment to the
children of our county. "We're
going to have a successful year,"
Wood said.
Four-year-old Samantha
Chaires was then introduced by
her teacher, Samantha Johnson
Barrett, as this year's
WalkAmerica youth ambassador.
Recounting how a premature
birth affects all parts of a family,.
Vivian Booth of Chattahoochee,
told the story of her nephew John
Porter and his twin sister Jada.
The twins were born about 16
weeks prematurely. While his
sister Jada lived only eight days,
John spent five months in the
neonatal intensive care unit at the
hospital before coming home. He
is a miracle baby, Booth told the
audience.


Youth Ambassador Samantha Ch
teacher, Samantha Johnson
She said the hardship brought
her already close family even
closer together. The'toughest part
for a family is dealing with this
hardship alone, but with the
March of Dimes that would be
hard to happen, she said. "Every
baby deserves its full nine
months. There is hope," Booth
said.
Jennifer Bitner, division
director for the March of Dimes,
agrees. "The people of Gadsden
County have always had a strong
commitment to WalkAmerica and
its children," she said.
"Together, we can have another


successful year."
.. -. B. Following the
S o. breakfast,
sponsored by
Envision Credit
Union,
community
director Susan
Barfield said the
March of Dimes
can suggest
fundraising
ideas, provide
informational
brochures and
materials, and
provide the
support to make
every team's
efforts
haires and her successful. If
Barrett you would like to
form a team, need
more information and supplies, or
would like to be a sponsor
contact Barfield at the March of
Dimes office at 422-3152 or fax
her at 386-6410. The Gadsden

St. John's Pre-K classes
visited the Mary Brogan
Museum of Arts and Science on
February 3. The students of
Mrs. Jenkins & Mrs. Lightfoot,
and Mrs. McNelson & Mrs.
Miller were very excited to
participate in the hands-on
science experiences, and to see
the art exhibits. The most
thrilling experience was the
Dinosaur exhibit!
The children were very
excited to read many dinosaur
books, to color dinosaur
worksheets, and to watch
dinosaur movies, but there are
very few words that will
express the thirty-six faces that
were fioticed when the students
walked into the museum.
Pictured above is one of
those thirty-six faces of
excitement, Chi-Terra Lewis,
and also a photo of
Tyrannosaurus, better known as
T Rex.


Centenary pre-school visits QPD
Mrs. Faircloth's 3k class at Preschool in Quincy has been
Centenary United Methodist "getting to know their

St. John Elem. School stress relief


When the staff at St. John
Elementary School was asked the
question, "Are we ready for the
FCAT?" everyone was confident
that we are. Our students are trying
extremely hard and all of them are
giving their best efforts.
We had a round table
discussion to share our ideas and
thoughts about our students'
consistent ability to remain
focused for the entire length of the
tests. Therefore, we decided to
focus on relaxation.
With testing just around the
corner, we are doing several things
to relieve the anxiety and, stress
that comes along with preparing a
quality education for our students.
The last day of FCAT tutoring,
the students received popcorn and
juice for all of their hard work,


dedication and commitment for
self-improvement.
In addition, all of the students
in third through fifth grade
received a care bag with chips,
juice, pencils, candy, and a
motivational note from his/her
mentor(s).
Two teachers won a half hour
massage to Copeland's magical
massage parlor. All teachers in
grades 3-5 received "GO TEAM"
bags with items related to
relaxation and quiet moments.
Some of the items were candles,
popcom, bottled water, stationery,
and a personalized CD with
inspirational quiet moment music
with water as a backdrop.
All in all, we realized that we
could not do it all by ourselves.
Thus, we reached out to our
parents. Our parents have been so
great in stepping in and helping us
out at home with test related
activities.
We would like to thank all of
our parents for their support as we
strive to create a brighter future for
all of our students. The
St. John FCAT ALL-STAR team
got together in our huddle and
cheered "TEAM." BLOW the
FCAT out of the water

ALBERT INSTEIN
AARCH 14th, 1879 Albert Einstein was born at Ulm in Baden-Wurttemberg, Germany. Einstein was born to Jewish parents,
Hermann and Pauline Einstein. Hermann Einstein was somewhat of an entrepreneur, with professions ranging from a partner in a
featherbed company to co-founding an electrochemical works company. which would eventually fail. Pauline Einstein was also a
well educated woman with an aptitude towards the arts, as she was an excellent pianist. For this reason, as a child, she insisted
that Albert take violin lessons, which he did not continue on through adulthood. Albert attended school in Munich, Germany and
excelled in math and science, but failed his other subjects. This is believed to be due to the fact that Einstein :.uffered from
gleaming disaoihtiei including dysle'.ia At age 16 he dropped out without his parent's knowledge. At age ip. they sent him to
finish secondary -.,hool in S'.v.Lrerla,nd in order for hnim to be accepted into the Unive-r ily .)f Zurich In 190i1i he graduated from the
university with a teaching degree In 19013. Einstein married a woman named Mileva ..3afic whom ei rnet ? t i University of
Zurich. Einstein and Mileva had three children. Afe' his divorce to Man.: in 1919 he married hiis csin, Elsa. Though he was
married most of his adult life Albert often hi'-ed in isolation ivork ng on his theories Einstein bt,ie .niL an American citi.-n in 1933
with the onset Lf Hitler during WVWi He died on April 181h 191.5 in Princetin New Jerse\ whert lie had lived and worked as a
professor at Princeton Un,.ersity
ALBERT Einstein is famous for his advan!Le- in math -ind science, most especially in the area il p.hysic.. He developed the
theory of relaiivily. 'onrribuledl to the- special thcor) of iativity wv.rkc1d in .luanilum phy'ic,. me(rh.anil *, statistics, and many other
fields. In 1921 he was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in Physics for his work on the photoelectric effect. Among other things
Einstein, along with fellow scientist Leo Szilard, invented a type of refrigerator.
ACCOMPANIED by his great intellectual achievements, Einstein was also well known for his personal contributions to society. He
was a great believer in peaceful movements and was often active in the American civil rights movement, In 1933, he became an
American citizen, renouncing his German citizenship due to Adolf Hitler's persecution of the Jewish population in Germany. The
development of the nuclear technology in the United States was started at Einstein's request to the president of the United States,
F.D. Roosevelt, Einstein was also a member of the American Federation of Teachers. He was also offered the ,poiii, i as second
president of Israel by the Israeli government in 1952. Einstein's list of achievements and contributions goes on and on.

on Saturday, March 18, as
Experimental Aircraft Association
(EAA) Chapter 445 hosts a Young
Eagles Flight Rally at Quincy

flown more than 1.1 million young
people who reside in more than 90
countries.
"Free airplane rides are just part
of the Flight Rally," said Danny

"We hope to build one-to-one
relationships between pilots and
young people, giving a new
generation a chance to learn more
about the possibilities that exist in
the world of aviation."
Pilots at the event will also
explain more about their airplanes
allowing young people to discover
how airplanes work and how pilots
ensure safety is the prime concern
before every flight.
Following the flight, each young
person, will receive a certificate
making them an official Young
Eagle. Their name will then be
entered into the "World's Largest
Logbook," which is on permanent'
display at the EAA Air Adventure
Museum in Oshkosh, WI. The
Logbdok is also accessible on the
Internet at www.youngeagles.org.

scholarship program.
Other activities scheduled for the
Flight Rally include a pancake

Along, with flight rallies, EAA

S. Jags see win streak end,


lose two district games
~~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ s .two, .v.'. ...


East Gadsden ran its baseball record to 7-0 with a
13-3 win over Madison last Wednesday, then ran
into trouble losing their first two district games, 9-3
to Rickards on Saturday and 6-2 to Bay High
Tuesday.
In the win over Madison the Jaguars pounded out
15 hits led by Ricky Gennie and Darryl Lightfoot
who had 3 apiece. Both Gennie and Lightfoot had
doubles and Lightfoot had a triple. Lightfoot drove
in 3 runs with his hits while Chris Brown drove in 2
runs with a pair of hits.
Julius McGlockton benefitted from the hitting
barrage as he pitched the win running his record to
3-0.
East Gadsden was to play at Rickards on Friday
but due to a scheduling gaffaw the game was moved
to Saturday at Corry Field.


The Raiders of Rickards came out smoking in the
game putting up a 6 spot in the first inning. Raider
pitchers Don Redding and Chris Wooland made the
lead hold up limiting the Jaguars to just 3 hits in the
contest.
Wooland had that many alone in the game for
Rickards and he collected 2 rbi's.
Gerard Russ, Zanders Horn, and Brett Wynn
picked up the East Gadsden hits.
Tuesday Bay High rallied from a 2-1 deficit and
had a 3 run 4th inning to get them by the Jaguars 6-
2.
Wynn drove in both East Gadsden runs with a 2
run second inning single.
East Gadsden plays 3 games this next week. They
play at Godby on Thursday, host Sneads Friday, and
host Arnold next Tuesday.

Munroe softball team loses pair


By Susie Morris
The Munroe softball team lost in extra innings at
Carrabelle and then lost to visiting Florida High in
local action.
In a key Class A District 3 game at Carrabelle on a
cool Friday night, the team was down 2-1 before
discovering the pitchers mound was set at the wrong
distance. Beginning this season and only in
Florida, the National High School Federation is
experimenting with moving the mound back from
40' to 43". Carrabelle did not receive the memo
and dug up the mound and moved it back. The
game continued and the Lady Cats responded
scoring six runs in the next two innings and lead 7-6
heading into the sixth. Carrabelle scored four runs
in the bottom and Munroe rallied to score five runs
in the top of the seventh and tie the game at 12-12.
They held the Panthers scoreless in the bottom of

the seventh but lost it in the eighth when Carrabelle
pushed a run across in the bottom.
Munroe out hit Carrabelle ten to nine hits but had
seven errors. Sallie Willis got the loss on the
mound but went three for four at the plate with 4
rbi's. Malorie McKinnon was 2 for 3 with a double
and two rbi's.
The Florida High game was nowhere near as
exciting nor close. Again Munroe gave up runs
created by errors not executing on defense. Florida
High used these errors to score 8 runs in the top of
the 2nd inning. They then scored five more runs to
Munroe's two runs to end the game on the mercy
rule 13-2 after five innings.
Munroe's Melody Brown pitched her first game of
the season and got the loss. The team dropped to 3-
5 overall. Julia Bates, Ammie Fletcher and Malorie
McKinnon each had one hit for the Lady Cats.

16 The Gadsden County Times March 9,2006


Deer Ridge developers put on notice: Time's up.


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

Time's up for the developers of Deer
Ridge Estates subdivision, south of the
*Havana city limits on U.S. 27 South.
Marlon Brown, county manager, was
instructed Tuesday night during the regular
meeting to set a hearing date and notify the
developers, Home Placement, Inc.,
Lifestyles Development Co., and Ponsit
Realty.
I This, after David Theriaque, attorney for
the developers, sent a letter dated March 1,
2006 to the chairman of board of county
commissioners Ed Dixon "Unless this
matter is resolved by Tuesday, March 7,
2006, my clients will have no choice but to
initiate the necessary legal proceedings,"


Theriaque wrote. In that letter he also
requested to be placed on Tuesday night's
agenda.
He said his clients had received a list of
items from the growth management
director William McCord asking that
certain corrections be made in the
development. "My clients have fulfilled a
substantial majority of the items your staff
requested," Theriaque said. He went on the
say that McCord issued a letter Tuesday
afternoon citing problems the county had
with the developer. "We have never seen
that letter," he said.
He asked that the county issue a
certificate of occupancy it is holding for..
one homeowner in the development. The
home was built for a Tallahassee police
officer who is anxious to get into his home,


according to Theriaque. The
commissioners' position is that the
homeowner will end up blaming the
county if he is allowed to occupy the
dwelling and the county is aware of
problems in the development.
"Those are civil problems
between the developers and the
homeowners that have nothing to do with
the county," Theriaque said.
"Let's wrap this up. Are we close
enough to finally say let's stop spending
money on lawyers? We believe the time
has come to put this thing to bed. I've been
representing sites for fifteen years from
Monroe to Escambia counties and to the
coast and I have never run into anything
like this," he said.
County attorney Thornton Williams


bristled at the suggestion from Theriaque
that the county has not tried to work with
his clients. He reminded him that county
staff gave his clients every opportunity to
meet with them and iron out their
concerns. Timelines, he said, were ignored
by developers.
"I'm not satisfied with the quality of the
work out there, neither are the
homeowners and neither are the inpsectors.
The developer should have hired a
contractor and done the right thing in the
beginning and they wouldn't be here
tonight," McCord said.
Commissioners said the county manager
and the developers can continue talks until
the hearing if they feel something could
come out of the meetings constructive and
beneficial during the hearing.

School site

Continued from Page 1

Shepard reminded
commissioners that construction
of the school is on a strict
timeline and any delay could
sidetrack the plan. "We fully
understand your concerns. We
have a construction timetable set
up. We want to be open by
August 2007. We plead with you
to let us move- forward tonight.
This is the first time that I have
heard of this (catwalk request)"
he said.
Several commissioners wanted
to know what the additional cost
to the school board to build a
catwalk. Rutherford said he
might be able to find out in a
couple of weeks but couldn't
promise anything.
"This is a state road and two
weeks is not a lot of time. We
would be crossing a state road
overhead and the Department of
Transportation might say no,"
Rutherford said.
County attorney Thornton
Williams said he was a former

to talk with officials in the

facilitate gathering catwalk

"I don't see anything (in the

"The fact they they may not be

enough to make some of them

Chtwrch Newsi


To discipline

or not?
Paul F. Joyner, Ph.D.
Having been in counseling for
over 30 years, I have received
many inquiries concerning the
discipline of
children.
Discipline
simply mesnl m. o
the placing ,f
external
standards and
controls or,
individual
conduct. I ch.L A
oftentimes
determined that the parents need
discipline more than the children.
Discipline is a necessary function
in training children in such areas
as personality maturation-for
acquiring such traits as
dependability, self-reliance, self-
control, persistence and the
ability to tolerate frustration. It is
necessary for socialization-for
learning the standards of conduct
approved in our culture. It is
necessary for the development of
conscience-the internalization of
moral standards and Christian
standards of behavior. Finally,
discipline is necessary for
children's emotional security.
Without the establishment of
limits, young people tend to feel
bewildered, apprehensive, and


even unloved.
I was counseling with a
teenager who said to me: "My
friend's mother will not let her do
this or that. She has a curfew,
etc." Then this teenaged girl said
to me, "I wish my mother cared
enough about me to tell me no.
My mother does not care what I
do." Children are looking for the
'fence'. They want to know how
far the parents will allow them to
go.
Today's parents are deluged
with advice on how to rear
children. Most of it is in the form
of prescriptions-what to do or not
to do in given circumstances-but
little on understanding children.
In order to deal more effectively
with children in situations, adults
need to recognize behavior
patterns and their hidden
goals-why they are doing what
they are doing.
Four apparent goals that may be
the cause of many behavioral
manifestions can be identified as
attention-getting, struggle for
power, revenge and using
disability as an excuse. Once the
goal of a given behavior has been
identified, then the parent is in a
much better position to deal with
the child and his/her needs.
The Scriptural admonition to
"train a child in the way he
should go" is a truism. For,
indeed, the manner in which a
child is disciplined will have a
marked influence on who he/she


is and how he feels about himself
in adulthood.
We invite you to visit The
Berean Church located south of
the old high school building in
Chattahoochee. Dr. Joyner can be
reached at 850-674-2633.

Continued from Page 1

discussion escalated into a heated
debate. The hasty end to the
meeting followed the first reading
of the ordinance to annex the Pat
Thomas Academy into the city.
Just prior to mayor Delores
Madison ending the meeting, the
majority of the agenda was tabled
until the March meeting. No
decision was made by the council
concerning the annexation
proposal.
Many of the same residents that
were at last month's meeting were
present last week and had concerns
that the issue was again back before
the council. This month's agenda
listed the issue as the "second
reading," of the Pat Thomas
Academy Annexation. In the
past, the council has discussed
ordinances on their first reading and
voted at the second reading.
Some residents at the meeting felt
that no action had been made on the


annexation ordinance (1st reading)
at the February meeting and that the
ordinance had not met the
advertising requirements. The
council decided that the issue
needed more attention and voted to
table the Pat Thomas .Academy
annexation to allow the issue to be
discussed at length in a workshop.
The workshop will be March 16 at
6:30 p.m. in the city council
meeting room.
It was also decided to allow those
present at the meeting to have an
opportunity to speak on the
annexation issue.
Dr. Bill Law, president of
Tallahassee Community College
spoke to the council concerning his
purpose in requesting the
annexation of Pat Thomas Law
Enforcement Academy into
Midway.
There had been some comments
that the annexation was done
secretly without the knowledge of
the local residents. Law said that
the annexation had not been a
secret and that the academy had
been approached by the city for
possible annexation. He said that

Bending steel!!


Big Bend Rebar Inc., building a success in Quincy


Story and photos
by BYRON SPIRES
Times Staff Writer

What do you get when you
mix a good idea, a lot of hard
work, a great location and a
commitment to produce a top
quality product together?'
For one trio of
entrepreneurs Patricia
Trotta, Joseph Trotta and
Danny Watkins you get Big
Bend Rebar Inc. of Quincy.
The idea was conceived by
the three at the "World of
Concrete Expo" in New
Orleans back in 2002. The trio
then embarked on a trek to
make that idea a reality. '
It was decided that the
panhandle of Florida needed a
fabricator of reinforced steel.
Reinforcing steel, or rebar as

Big Bend Rebar.
All good business plans.
Patricia will tell \\ou. must be
well funded. That became her
primary objective, to find the
money to turn the trio's idea
into a reality.
A lot of things had to fall
together for the business to
materialize, Patricia said. "We
had a lo't of set backs along the
way," but perseverance paid
off in the end for the small
company.
Patricia said she took
advantage of every available
contact she could make and

learned a lot about funding a
business like Big Bend Rebar.
Along the way she became
familiar with Tallahassee
Community College's
business solutions and
Workforce Plus training grants
and programs. The local TDS
office has been instrumental in
helping her through the
application process for low
interest USDA loans.
There was also a lot of help
from Sherry VanLandingham
and the Gadsden County
Chamber of Commerce,
Patricia said.
"We are very thankful for
all of the help we received,
,especially the City of
Quincy."
The City of Quincy had


success of the company.
Also receiving'her praise is
John Thomas of NetQuincy
internet services. Patricia said
the company could not
function without the high
speed internet service received
from NetQuincy. She added
that Thomas had helped the
company tremendously with
technical support.
Others who contributed,to
helping the company on its
feet are US Congressman
Allen Boyd, state
representative Curtis
Richardson and state senator
Al Lawson who were involved
in the infrastructure grants and
loans for both Big Bend Rebar
and the City of Quincy.

Big Bend Rebar a reality she
said.
"I spent a great deal of time
with Arlene Houston with the
City of Quincy," Patricia said.
She praised then Quincy
mayor Derrick Elias and city
attorney Jack McLean as
having contributed to the early


used when describing how the
one time idea of a business in
Quincy came to become a
reality.
"This was such a
collaboration of people and a
tribute to the individuals who
work in the system who did
their jobs well," Patricia said. *
After a host of obstacles


were dealt with and overcome,
the business opened in
September of 2003, right in
the rpiddle of a steel shortage.
Steel allocations started one
week before the company
officially opened its doors.
But fate was on the
company's side and Mucor
Steel stepped in and shared
steel with the fledgling
company. They now purchase
their all-American made stock
from Mucor and Gerdau
Ameristeel.
With a 250 mile radius
territory, which includes some
of north Florida's fastest
growing communities, Big
Bend Rebar began to find its
nitch.
Once the company opened
the doors the orders started
coming in. Several local
contractors including Cook
Brothers and Concrete
Services have used the
company for their rebar needs.
Big Bend Rebar.has
contributed products to the
construction of CVS Drug
store, the William "Bill"
McGill Library and Premier
Bank, and are now shipping
products to the new
Walgreen's Drug store, and
the new FSU parking garage
in Tallahassee.
Watkins is the vice
president of marketing and the
driving force behind the
growing sales of the company.
Joseph, vice president of
operations oversees the
production end of the business
with the help of James
Worley, CAD operator who
is in charge of the company's
technical duties, and Donnie
Johnson, the company's senior
estimator.
The company has also
contributed back to the
community that has helped it


head down the road to
success,. Big Bend Rebar
employees 15 'at present, many
of those are local residents. As
part of.the agreement with the
City of. Quincy for the land at
the Quincy. Business park on
Joe Adams Road, the
company had to employee
local residents.
At a recent City of Quincy
meeting, city attorney Jack
McLean asked that the
company be allowed to
complete its agreement six
months early.
"They have been good
corporate citizens," McLean
said at the meeting.
The commission gave
approval for the agreement to
be terminated early freeing the
property the company
occupies for refinancing. The
refinancing is for expansion of


one end of the 15,000 square
foot building and the finished
rebar leaves from the other
end of the building.
"None of our products are
stored outside,"Larry Trotta
said. Keeping the rebar out of
the' weather, Trotta said, kept
rust off the steel.
"Location, location,
location, is what real estate
people will say about where to
locate your business," Patricia
said.
Location of the company
has played a factor in the
company's success.
"This location, a half mile
from 1-10, near the railroad,
and part of the state's
enterprise zone (a host of
employee incentives) is a
definite plus. This is a great
place for a business," Patricia
said, adding that Gadsden
n owM


Joseph Trotta is shown inside the manufacturing building
with some of the cut rebar


the company. ;
Patricia said they have
found a home for their ,-
business in Gadsden County
and are committed to grow
here.
Over the past few years
Patricia said she has learned a
lot about business. She is a
retired social worker and loves
to read, an asset that came in
handy as she prepared the
company's financial plans and
needs.
In today's business world
you have to provide a product
on time and within budget to
be successful, Patricia said.
Big Bend Rebar has been able
to provide that.
The company operates all
of their manufacturing under
one roof. Raw product enters


County is a great place to
bring a new business.
She recommends-that -
everyone take advantage of
WorkForce Plus.
"Our commitment is to
provide jobs to Gadsden
County residents," Patricia
said.
Patricia said that she felt
the Quincy Business Park had
a very bright future and hoped
that the city commission
would continue to support
new business that wanted to
move to the park.
If there is any praise for
their success Patricia said it is
the community that worked
together to make this business
park and bring businesses
here.


Remembering the golden era of shade tobacco


Submitted by WGHS


The monthly meeting of the
West Gadsden Historical
Society will be held on
Sunday, March, 19, at 3 p.m.,
Gardner Hall, 150 E. 11lth St.,
in Greensboro.
The speaker at this meeting
will be Kay Davis Lay, who
will lead a brief discussion of
the shade tobacco era in
Gadsden County, followed by
everyone driving out to the "I
Hear Hester Singing" Barn
located on the Davis Farm,
Hosford Highway, in Sawdust.
Ms. Lay has restored
the tobacco barn which was
built in 1942 and was in
continuous use on her family's
farm through 1975.
Farm implements,
especially those relating to the
planting and tending of shade
tobacco, old photographs, and
more will be on display.
Hester Hartsfield Williams
worked in this barn, stringing
tobacco on sticks to be hung
for curing. She was a stead),
exemplary mother figure ,'nd
role model remembered ,for
her ironclad integrity and
velvet voice. If one stops and
listens, Hester just might be
heard singing those beautiful
songs of long ago. There'is no
charge for this extraordinary
program and Ms.
Lay is waiving the admission
prices for her relaced barn
tour.
Quoting from Kay Lay's
brochure: "Shade tobacco was


"I Hear Hester Singing" Barn located on the Davis Farm, Hosford Highway, in Sawdust. This is
one of the few "tall" window barns left in the county.,

a very unique crop with a long
history going back 150 years
in Gadsden County. While it
lasted, it gave Quincy and the
surrounding area a sense of
community spirit a shared
way of life. Tobacco for cigar
wrappers had been grown in
the county since 1829, but the
discovery around 1900 that
growing tobacco under shade
vastly improved the color and
texture is what Quincy is best
noted for.


The most coddled of all
tobaccos grew into a
multimillion dollar a year
industry for Quincy, earning it
the title "Shade Tobacco
Capital."
It was almost .exclusively
associated with ,,,areas near
Quincy, including southern
Decatur & Grady counties in
GA and Madison Co., FL, and
it branched out to the
Connecticut River Valley in
western Connecticut. In the


mid-1960s, this Golden Era
began to experience tremors:
growing health concerns,
mounting production costs,
Caribbean and homogenized
wrapper competition.
Presently much of the
world's wrapper tobacco
comes from Ecuador and
Veracruz, Mexico. Though it
has been pictured as a
"millionaire's crop," shade
tobacco was the crop of
ordinary farmers. Any "Joe


Blow" could grow 5 acres and
sometimes realize a good
return. (Quite a gamble!)
Here, the work was shared by
family, several tenant families,
plus seasonal help,
Handicapped, elderly, children
could all work in it.
Please remember to mark
your calendar to attend the
West Gadsden Historical
Society meeting on Sunday,
March 19 and spend an
enjoyable time remembering
and sharing with one another
all the good ole times of this
area's by-gone golden tobacco
era.
For the "newcomers" who
did not. live in Gadsden
County during the shade
tobacco years, come join with
us and find out exactly what
you missed! Everyone
attending should bring their
children and grandchildren,
too.
An entire generation has
now grown up since the
demise of shade tobacco and
its history should be told for
generations to come.
Shade tobacco was the life
of the vast majority of people
in Gadsden County for 150
years. John "Virginia" Smith,
the ancestor of many folks in
this county, brought tobacco
seeds with him when he
moved his family from
Virginia to Gadsden County
around 1829. The
rest of the story is history.

please call 442-4041.


Apalachicola

River oral

history on

website

One of Florida's most
endangered river systems, the
Apalachicola, comes alive
through stories of its people in
a new book, Voices of the
Apalachicola. Published on
behalf of the Northwest
Florida Water Management
District by the University
Press of Florida, the District
has made the book available
at its website,
www.nwfwmd.state.fl.us/pub.
The oral history is a
compilation of 36 oral
histories from people who
made their livelihoods along
the river and bay. One of the
main sources of water not
only for Florida, but also
Alabama and Georgia, the
Apalachicola River begins
where the Chattahoochee and
Flint Rivers meet at Lake
Seminole and flows
unimpeded for 106 miles to
the Gulf of Mexico.

24 Gadsden County Times March 9, 2006


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


tag
A *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
Value", which is the price credit unions
and banks will loan you on this vehicle.
*We require NO DOWN PAYMENT on
any of our vehicles. We can even help with


your taxes and tag most of the time.
*At LOAN VALUE. we make a small prof-
it and you get a great deal!
The best part is we have family on the
lot, NOT HIGH PRESSURE SALES PEOPLE."
If you don't see the car of your dreams in
this ad, call us. We'll get you pre-approved,
tell you what it will cost and buy it for you.
