County faces up to late payments


Thomas, Brown

spar over unpaid

county bills

by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor


In a letter to the board of county
commissioners last week, Clerk of the
Courts Nicholas Thomas said he had been
contacted "numerous times" by vendors
who had not received payments from the
county.
"In an effort to expedite payment, we
contacted the county departments only to
learn that the bills had been submitted by


them timely and appropriately to the
Office of Management and Budget (OMB)
department for processing. However, they
have not been. forwarded to the Clerk's
Office for auditing and payment," he
wrote.
Marlon Brown, county manager, said it is
true that some of the vendors had not been
paid and that he takes full responsibility.
However, he went on to say that some of


the bills that had not been paid were in part
Thomas' fault because he kicked them
back to OMB with the explanation that no
account numbers were attached and he
didn't know which account from which to
make the payments.
"He is fully aware that we changed our
budgeting processes and we are in the

Talking' trash

Quincy commissioners field garbage complaints


by BYRON SPIRES
Times Staff Writer
Garbage-garbage-garbage, what to do with. the
garbage was the Quincy commissioners dilemma
Tuesday night.
"I'm getting a lot of calls about the garbage not
being picked up," commissioner Finley Cook said.
Cook was not alone: altl five comnris-Iner,
complained about Waste Management's recent
missing-in-action garbage truck.
"My deepest sincere apology," James Woolover
district manager for Waste Management (WM)
said to the commissioners. Woolover said the
problem had and still is a small brake part for the
one truck WM has in Quincy. The part was not
available in the United States or Canada. The part
he said would have to be manufactured for the
truck.
To add insult to injury Woolover said Quincy's
truck was a special truck. The truck has a side
collection, the only one in the area and it required
only one person to operate it.
Cook said that he did not understand why WM
did not have a backup plan ana had allowed the
city's garbage to pile up.
Woolover said that he now had three trucks in
Quincy working on collecting the garbage and
hoped to have all collections made and be back on
schedule by Saturday.
There had been plans to bring a back-up truck to
Quincy, Woolover said, but the truck had been
sidetracked to New Orleans after the hurricanes.


Commissioner Derrick Elias was not satisfied
with that answer and asked Woolover if any of
WM's other customers had been effected.
Woolover said that for Tallahassee, Leon County,
Gadsden County and Wakulla County he had an
extra truck, but it too
.. W was being used. He
did say that he has
three of the rear
collecting trucks in
Quincy. The problem
he said is that each
truck takes three
people to operate.
There were not
enough extra vehicles
S to make up the
difference.
The Quincy truck he

but could be operated

required only one

"Do what you have to do, hire
more people, recruit people, pay
them more, but get a consultant
on board to complete the
visioning process by July 1,"
was what Ed Dixon, chairman of
the Board of County
Commissioners, told growth
management director William
McCord Tuesday night during a
special workshop.
The board of county
commissioners entered into a
contract with the Department of
Community Affairs to implement
an Urban Service Boundary
(USB) study.
The study will incorporate a
visioningg" process in order to
begin identifying what land use
and land development
characteristics will be required
within the designated USB.
In short, the state wants the
county to identify areas near
urban services (water, sewer,
electricity) that may be easily
expanded to serve rural residents.
Those counties that complete the
task will be looked at favorably
by DCA when awarding grants.
The visioning process is
required as part of the grant in
order to access some grants from
DCA. The problem is that no
consultant wants to do it for
Gadsden County. McCord said
requests for proposals were
mailed to consultants with the
maximum pay of $10,000 to
assemble socio-economic and
physiographic information on the
county and present the best
management practices and
examples.
"Unfortunately, the county has
not received responses to the


proposals. The deadline for
responding was Feb. 24. One
consultant responded and then
withdrew the proposal." McCord
said.
When asked why he thought no
consultants were interested,
McCord said he did not know.
He speculated that it could be the
amount of money offered for the
work.
He said the staff could continue
to look for consultants who can
do the job, or the staff could do
the work themselves or the

Charles Chapman, the county's
parks and recreation coordinator,
brought the Board of County
Commissioners up to date on the
progress he has made since
joining the county last October.
In the end, he asked
commissioners to allow him to
pursue a partnership with the
Gadsden County School Board to
use recreational facilities on
school property in the county
after hours and to, appoint new
members to the Recreation
Advisory Council.
The council, he said, has
become ineffective because fewer

Gadsden jail home to 11 charged with murder


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
There are eleven people currently in the
county jail charged with first-degree
murder.
"That seems like a lot for a little county
like ours, but you have to remember that
six of those are cold cases," said Sheriff
Morris Young.
Assistant State Attorney Richard Combs
said it is unusual to have this many people
sitting in jail awaiting trial for murders.
"We've had more than our share. Some of
these cases (six) are cold cases. If they had
been solved when they happened, there
wouldn't be this many. The focus of the
Sheriff when he came into office was to
solve some of these cold cases and he did,"
Combs said.
One of the accused has been behind bars
for more than two years, awaiting trial.
"So much for 11-29," said Young,
referring to the law that says an inmate can


only remain in the county jail for eleven
months and 29 days.
Willie Sentill Smith, accused of killing
four members, of one family on Atwater
Road family was set to go to trail next
month, almost three years to the date from
the night the murders were committed. The
last time Smith was set for trial he
attempted to hang himself with bed sheets
from the vent in his jail cell. Now he is
under suicide watch.
Just this week, the Public Defender's
Office notified the State Attorney that they
have withdrawn from the case and another
attorney will take over. "That will delay it
even further," said Combs, since a judge
must appoint the attorney.
"Whenever it comes to trial, this is likely
to be the biggest case in the county's
history if the prosecutors seek the death
penalty," said Major Shawn Wood, jail
administrator.
Smith is accused of the April 19, 2004
murder of his former girlfriend, 19-year-


old Kimberly Walker; her mother, 35-
year-old Deondra Scott; her sister, 14-
year-old Laterica Jackson; and her cousin,
9-year-old Terrel Brown. All! four of the
victims were shot to death.
Later that night Smith, 21 at the time of
the crimes, surrendered to then Deputy
Morris Young and confessed to the
killings. In the meantime, Smith is costing
taxpayers big bucks while he sits in jail.
Last year two doctors told Circuit Judge
William Gary that he was not mentally
stable enough to stand trial. There is a
price tag attached each time he sees a
doctor.
Clinton Jordan has been in jail almost a
year since he was arrested for the murder
of 25-year-old Anthony Ross as he rode a
go-cart along Candy Lane, one of Gretna's
back streets.
That same week in 2005, a Gadsden
County teenager Terell Powell was
arrested for the 2003 cold case murder of
William Moses Wilson in the Robertsville


Community. Powell, a high school student,
had been a suspect in the year-long search
for enough evidence to make an arrest. A
break finally came when the weapon was
discovered discarded in a well.
Powell allegedly shot Wilson at the home
he shared with his brother and sister-in-
law as he sat on a back yard swing. He laid
there all night until a relative, crossing the
yard, noticed him clinging to life on the
ground. He died minutes after authorities
arrived.
Donna Cannon was. also arrested as a
conspirator with Powell in Wilson's
murder.
Three men were arrested last June in the
murder of Jeremiah "Jerry" Sanders. Earl
Lee Moore, Tracy Lamar Wright, Jr., and
Norman Winbush, Jr. were all charged
with first degree murder. The trio allegedly
plotted to kill Sanders, a Gadsden County
employee, after they heard he came into
money from a lawsuit. When Sanders

JROTC platoon brings home state's top honor


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

East Gadsden High School's
JROTC Unarmed Platoon
Regulation Drill Team left
Quincy last Friday headed for
Lakeland to participate in the
state championship competition.
They were going up against
teams from all over the state,
many with school populations of
more than 5,000 students. And as
an added challenge, they had to
compete against the Sarasota
Military Academy.
"I knew deep down that we had
done a good job when I walked
off the field. But when I finished
talking to the judge and he said
he didn't have anything to say, I
knew we had it," said platoon
Commander Gary Russ. The
judge asked Russ if he competed
last year and told him that he
could see the improvement in the
team.
Competing against schools like
Miami Norland, Piper High of
Sunrise and Spruce Creek of
Daytona didn't phase the Quincy
team. "We drilled and we
practiced. I knew we could do it.
I knew we were going to place, I
didn't know how high until it was
over, that's'when I got nervous,"
Russ said.
As commander, Russ says he
sometimes had to keep the other
guys on track, especially during
the two hours a day, four days a
week practice sessions. "They did
better than I thought they would
do. At practice they sometimes
act up, but in competition they do
what they are supposed to do," he
said.
The participating teams consist
of 13 members. The Jaguar team
has five true freshmen on its
team. "Those guys only started
marching in October, they have
done a remarkable job," said their
instructor, MSC Jerome Kerrison.
In order to build confidence
Kerrison said he tells the cadets
that the other teams are just like
them and that the size of the
school doesn't make a difference.
"In the end, there are 13 of us and
13 of them. It's a matter of how
well they execute what they have
been taught," he said.
Russ, 17, joined JROTC in 2004
and began drilling in 2005. "I
volunteered to be commander
because I feel I am a leader.'I was
also excited about the trips and
the o Ippetition," he said. In
addition i'~-keeping a ngorous-


school schedule, Russ works
between 20 and 30 hours per
week at the local CVS drug store.
Lt. Col. Kenneth Bouie, Jr.
began JROTC at Havana
Northside High. "When I was in
elementary school, I used to go
watch my brother drill and it was
something I just wanted to do,"
he said. When he made the
transition to the new school,
participating in JROTC was a
natural. Besides, JROTC is a
family tradition. "My father and
sister were Battalion
Commanders when they were in
JROTC," he said.
After graduation this summer
Bouie plans to enlist in the Army.
"My plan is to join the Army and
stay for four years and learn
Automobile Service Engineering.
When I get out, I want to learn all
I can about repairing foreign
cars," he said. Kerrison said any
high school student who spends
two years in JROTC will earn
about $400 more per month than
an ordinary enlistee without
ROTC.
"I'll admit that I would like to
see them all go into the Army but
that's not going to happen. But if
they are going to go, the JROTC
would be a great help," said the
21-year-veteran, who has been
teaching JROTC for the past
eight years.
Bouie said his parents, Rosa and
Kenneth Bouie, are very
supportive of his activities. "My
mom said she knew we would
bring home something," he said.
In addition to JROTC the 18-
year-old senior makes the honor
roll consistently and works from
5 p.m. to 11 p.m. at Burger King.
"It's hard but if you want
something you have to work hard
to get it," he said.
Since EGHS opened its doors
they have earned trophies each
year. Trophies line the wall of the
classroom, fill two large trophy
cases in the hallway and are on
display in the main office. "We
have a JROTC tradition here of
winning and we have to keep that
tradition going," is what Bouie
said he thought about when they
begin the competition phase.
It was the sharpness of the
steps, the crisp looking uniforms
and the students who seemed to
have it all together that made 10th
grader Xavier Barnes take a close
too:.k at JROTC. It was also what
he saw when he stepped inside
the JROTC classroom. "To
motivate better people to become

week. Kneeling: MSG Xavier Barnes, CPL Kendrick Brown, CPT. Jose Lopez, and MSG Jessie Marshall.

better citizens is the mission
statement and that impressed me
a lot. When I saw that, I knew it
was where I wanted to be," he
said.
Barnes, who lives with his
guardian Yvette Olds in
Robertsville, has never been in
any real trouble. He credits
JROTC with helping him stay
straight. "I used to think, of
negative things to do and I had
some friends who weren't right
for me. Through JROTC and the
drill team, I have positive things
to do and positive friends," he
said.
He too plans to join the Army
for a short time after high school.
"After that I want to settle down
with a nice little family and lead a
nice life," he said.
Last Saturday was a good day
for Jose Lopez. He knew they
were up against some of the best
schools in the state, but his
confidence was high when he
stepped on the field. The East
Gadsden team performed about


midway of the 32 teams
competing in the category. "Some
of them were very good but I
wasn't feeling intimidated," he
said.
Lopez is a veteran with four
years of JROTC under his belt.
But it was those rifles being
tossed in the air, caught and
flipped that attracted him at first.
"When I told my mom I wanted
to join JROTC she asked me if I
was crazy. I had to convince her
that they teach you how to
handle the rifles and not hurt
yourself," he said.
Drilling is only the tip of the
iceberg of what he has learned
through the program. "I have
learned responsibility. Before
joining I used to do what I
wanted. But I have gotten my
priorities in check and I make
good choices. I don't know how
to express it, but I love JROTC,"
mm- u''sl a ,lt"N I


he said. Like most of the cadets,
Lopez has a busy schedule. He
plays soccer, works with the
young people his church (St.
Thomas The Apostle), tutors
young children and helps prep
cars for his father's auto paint
shop. His future is knocking at
the door and soon he will be
headed for college. "What I have
learned here will always be with
me," he said.
There are about 200 students
enrolled in JROTC at the school.
All of them do not participate in
drill however. Kerrison said
about 100 students are in his
classes. And no matter how much
practice his teams get, Karrison
admits to getting butterflies
when they enter competition.
"They knew what to do, we had
practiced, practiced, practiced.
They had to execute 60
commands and they had eight


minutes to do it," he said. Still, he
was on the sidelines like a stage
mother who had gone over the
lines of a performance hundreds
of time.
"I'm guilty of sometimes
looking away and then asking one
of my parents if they executed
right. I will also pace up and
down the field. When you train
them, you have to keep' in mind
that they are students. There will
be ups and downs, you have to
get them to believe they can win.
I tell them to go out and do what
they have been trained to do," he
said.
They don't have too long to sit
back and savor the victory.
Starting Tuesday they were
practicing again for the next meet
on March 25 in Macon, GA. That
event is the U.S. Cadet Command

*iThe:e School Bioard members and I tmiruy beuele mtat all cinuren can succeed ana
that every' child is endowed with a posiuve purpose in life. We are determined not to
let students' misbehaviors prevent them from having a successful adulthood. We also
believe that misbehaviors are a plea for help, and we are examining and instituting
programs that will help not only the child but his/her family to experience success.
I firmly believe that all children who graduate from the Gadsden County School District should
have the character, as well as the academic abilities, to be a success in life. regardless of their chosen pro-
fession. To ensure this success. I have targeted fighting as a starting point to deal with misbehaviors. My
goals are to stop the fighting, to give the students tools to resolve their problems in a nonviolent way, and
to reach into our communities to garner the support of parents and community leaders because this is
where most disputes start.
It should be noted that referrals for fighting in our schools actually dropped 19% in 2005 (491)
from a peak of 604 in 2004. It looks as if 2006 ma' have even fewer incidents, and we believe school uni-
forms are playing a large part in these improvements. However, I don't view this drop as a victory. because
there are still too many discipline incidents m our middle and high schools. I am determined to use my
leadership to foster even greater improvements.
Hope Academy will be the focal program for misbehaving students. I do not believe out-of-
school suspensions have a positive impact on students %%ho consistently and chronically misbehave.
Therefore, we will begin to use the academy more in place of out-of-school suspensions. This program is
being modeled after other successful academies around the state in that it 'will be a behavioral change pro-
gram. If a student's behavior doesn't change. then Hope Academy will become the student's permanent
school. Again. [ believe that all children can succeed, and I am structuring our altemative schools with a
combination of firm, loving discipline and work-oriented reward systems to make sure that students learn
from their mistakes and also flourish as individuals when they return to their regular schools.
OUT OF GREAT CHALLENGES COME GREAT OPPORTUNITIES. We Will Build A
Brighter Future For All The Students of Gadsden County.

Sincerely,
Reginald James

Greensboro receives $600,000 for street improvements


BY BYRON SPIRES
Times Staff Writer
The Town of Greensboro
will soon be getting some
much needed street work done
over the next few months.
The Florida Department of
Community Affairs'
representative Steve
Fellerman presented the town
council with a $600,000
Community Development
Block Grant Monday night.
Fellerman said the small
western Gadsden County town
had been chosen for the grant
from a host of applicants. He
was confident, he said that the
money would be well spent on
upgrading the towns streets.
Mayor Buddy Pitts,
thanked Fellerman and
promised that the money
would be well spent for street
upgrades.
Council member, Max
Fletcher said the grant money
would be used for street
drainage improvements,
resurfacing streets and to
purchase an auxiliary
generator for the towns water
system.
The recent DCA grant is not
the only state grant money
Greensboro has
received. According to
Fletcher and Pitts, Greensboro
recently received a $200,000
Florida Department of
Environmental Protection
FRDAP grant.
The money Fletcher said
will be used for improvements

Times Editor
Nicholas Thomas, Clerk of the
Courts, has put the board of county
commissioners on notice that he
believes at least two of the
expenditures.they expect him to pay
are. improper expenses. And he
said, without a legal opinion, he
won't be paying.
First, Thomas said he will not pay
any more operational expenses
using funds from money derived
from the $15 surcharge for non-
criminal traffic fines. Money from
the fines, collected between July
2004 and December 2005, came to
$160,761. In the 2005/2006 budget,
the BoCC budgeted $79,000 for
operational expenses for the
courthouse such as telephone bills,
security, and utilities. As of last
month, $31,000 of the $79,000 had
been spent.
"While I realize that you consider
this a 'gray' area, I contend that the
legislature intended for that money
to be used for. providing for
construction and renovations of
court facilities and not operational
expenses. I believe this is an
improper expense. In keeping with
that belief, I have directed my staff
not to pay any more operational
expenses from that fund," Thomas
said in a memo dated February 15.
. He asked the BoCC to reclassify
the expenditures to come from the
general fund and to amend their
budget accordingly. If the two
parties cannot agree on how the
money can be spent, Thomas asked
the BoCC to get a declaratory
judgment on the matter.
To seek a declaratory judgment is
to ask a court to define the legal
rights on an issue. "I will be happy
to abide such a ruling," Thomas
said.
On a separate issue and in a
memo dated March 9, 2006,
Thomas questioned the BoCC's

to the town's park which will
include a new basketball
court, additional parking,
playground equipment, a
tricycle track and an
additional covered picnic area.
In other business the
council heard from Gadsden
County commission chairman
Ed Dixon concerning the
county's moratorium on land
development over 20 acres.


Dixon recently spoke to the
Midway council concerning
the same issue and said he
intends to speak to all of the
cities in the county.
*He asked that the Town of
Greensboro not annex any
new parcels in to their town
limits until after the end of
June deadline for the
moratorium.
Fletcher explained to Dixon


State candidates visit Quincy


by Alice DuPont
Times Editor
Democratic candidates for
Governor and Attorney General
respectively, Rod Smith and
Skip Campbell, made their way
to Gadsden County Monday for


almost an entire day of meetings
with Democrats and supporters.
A Prayer Breakfast was held at
First Elizabeth Church in Quincy
followed by several closed door
meeting with elected officials.
Both candidates answered
questions from law enforcement


officers during a luncheon,
which was followed by another
round of meetings.
Both said they would return
to the county in an attempt to
win the county which is heavily
populated with people who
belong to the Democratic Party.'


that Greensboro did not have
any annexations on the board
at this time and would adhere
to his request. he added that
the town was working on a
small subdivision of 15 lots


already inside the town limits
Dixon stated that he would
like to see a dialog between
Greensboro and the county
develop. The need for
infrastructure he said was


commitment to loan Kevin
McDaniels money to complete the
necessary infrastructure before the
Piggly Wiggly store opens.
"I wish he would get his facts
together before he starts sending
memos," said Marlon Brown,
county manager. Brown said the
county has, in effect, loaned itself
$266,827 and that the county will
be the recipient of the grant funds,
not McDaniels.
"It is my understanding that while
you have confidence that the grant
will be forthcoming, there is no
certainty that the grant will be
awarded," Thomas said.
"It is commendable that you are
so committed to bringing economic
development to the forefront of
your agenda. However, I have
grave reservations about this
arrangement. Most of the
development in this county is
market driven and the developers
have paid for the infrastructure
associated with their business. The
county cannot afford to loan this
type of money to every developer
who may ask for assistance. We are
not a bank," Thomas said.
Commissioners addressed that
issue during the March 7 meeting
and agreed that this is a special case
and it is the exception rather than
the rule.
"In all good conscience, I cannot
and will not make such a
disbursement without a legal
opinion from the county attorney
citing the expressed authority by
which a non-charter county many
loan money directly to a private
developer or pay vendors for
development of private property,"
Thomas said.
County Attorney Thornton
Williams said he is happy that
Thomas sent the memo. "The
county is growing and we are doing
things that we have not done before
and there are going to be questions.
The Clerk is on the right track


because he wants to get these
questions answered to make sure
that everything is being done
corrn'ectly and to see that the county
runs properly," he said.
Williams said he does not think
Thomas' letter is confrontational
only that the process is working..
"I'm happy that he has enough
confidence in me as the county's,
attorney to ask me to research the
legal opinion," he said, adding,
"things will be new for everybody.
They are supposed to know what
the boundaries are and the question
is once you know what the
boundaries are, if you should follow
them."


going to be an important issue
over the next few years and
working together would be the
best solution.
"We need to sit down and
plan for the future," Dixon
said.
He warned that what is
happening in South and
Central Florida is headed to
this area.
"Greensboro is going to
look marketable different,
because of growth," Dixon
said.
Dixon's biggest concern
was the number of new
subdivisions with septic tanks.
"We don't want a county
full of septic tanks, Dixon
said, adding that Clay county
in South Florida was now
dealing with major water
issues, because of
overbuilding with septic
tanks.
The county is not
attempting to stop your
growth, just delay it until the
infrastructure can be put into
place, Dixon said.
There are plans, Dixon
stated to have a study to
determine what needs to
happen in the county for
growth. This will allow the
county to see where we are
going and how we are going
to pay for it, he said.

Telemarketers & Charlotte NC


Ujinding Roads

BvI. Byron Spires t' to




It is a grand mystery to me


I thought I signed up to not have
telemarketers calling me to sell their "great
deals." I guess the time is up for my name
because they have started back calling me.
Last week a nice young man from
Charlotte, North Carolina called to sell me
siding for my house. Of course I didn't want
any but since I felt like talking, I struck up a
conversation with him when he told me the
city from which he was calling.
As fate would have it, I plan to go to
Charlotte in the near future for a convention.
I've never been to Charlotte and took the
advice of the Food Network's $40 A-Day
hostess Rachael Ray. She advises that if
you're going to a new city, ask people who
have lived there or have visited there in the
past.
So I asked the young man for his advice
on what there to do in Charlotte because, to
be honest, all I had heard about was
NASCAR and the basketball team. He
started to give me a list of clubs that are hot.
I assured him that my clubbing days were
just about over and that I was not looking to
"hook-up" with anyone.


What was Delores
Madison thinking?


Dear Editor:

Commissioners Dixon and
Holt told the Midway City
Commission that the rates
the City of Midway paid for
county services were hourly
rates and not a true cost of
services. The county must
fist buy the equipment that
isi used for road and bridge,
fire protection and law
enforcement then the cities
ofily have to pay an hourly
rate. Why is this so difficult
for her to understand? The
county could not help the
cities with services unless
the county had the
equipment first. I got my
information about the new
developments coming to
Midway from Midway City
Hall, it is called freedom of
information, maybe that is
Where the county
commissioners got theirs.
Come on Miss Madison
just admit it, the County
Commission asked for the
mnioratorium to allow all the
elected officials and citizens
an opportunity to become
ritore knowledgeable about
growth and development
which in 'turn would allow
the cities and county
opportunities to apply for
state and federal funding.
The funding that your city
needs for a sewage system
could come from state or
federal grants or other
government sources. Is it
unreasonable to think that it
would be better to put in the
sewage system before the
new communities and streets
are paved so that the streets
will not have to be torn up
later? Like Miss Holt once
said, "all the elected
officials in the cities, county,
school board need to take
development workshops that
are open for public input so
together we can come up
with a plan for government
funding." Mr. Piller maybe
able to get development for
your city but you, as well as


He gave me the names of several
restaurants that he said had some acclaim in
the area for the culinary skills. I was
interested in North Carolina barbecue.
"There are so many good barbecue places
here, I can't just name one. They are all over
the place," was his exact quote.
By this time he was anxious to get off the
telephone with me but I wasn't quite ready
for him to go, after all, he hadn't told me
how to get to the mall. And, to be honest, he
called me I didn't call him so I felt he should
stay on the telephone as long as I wanted to.
As far as I could tell the mall is as good any
other as malls go. He admitted that he wasn't
a mall kind of guy.
Although he gave me a few good tips, I'm
still in search of info about Charlotte. I know
I can go on line and find out some things
about the city, and I plan to. But, there is no
substitute for good first-hand information.
If any of my readers ever lived in
Charlotte or can give me a few pointers on
what to see and do, call me at the office. I
need to start planning now.



the other members of that
commission, have not
developed one community in
your entire life so how do
you know what you .are
voting for? How do you
know Nwhat is good
development and what is
bad? It is not humanly
possible for one building
inspector to inspect all that
development and is part
time. Tell me how he
inspects buildings at night?
We all understand this is
an election year so we know
what you are tyring to do.
But believe me it will not
work.
Why didn't you mention
Commissioner Lamb and
why he wanted you to follow
the moratorium. What is
good for the goose is
gander? If you build your
house in Midway next to an
industrial plant it will not be
worth a dime.
Listen Miss Madison go to
the county workshops you
just may learn something. To
the good people of Midway
you need to wake up and see
what is really going on.

Arcedra Johnson



Reply to Madison

Dear Editor:

Miss Madison, I received my
information concerning the
new developments and
county services cost for the
city of Midway from the
Midway City Hall, the
Gadsden County Sheriff's
department, two members of
the Gadsden County
Development Council and
the county budget.
I assure you my only
interest in Midway is the
improvement of the quality
of life for all Gadsden
County residents inside and
outside of each of our towns
and cities. Please let me
know if I can be of any
further assistance to you by
calling 627-2527. T hank
you very much for your time

Snow storms and Bush -

Dear Editor:

Wouldn't you know it?
The Bush Administration
and the inept FEMA folks
have done it again!
The East Coast blizzzard
could have been prevented
but, as everyone knows,
Mr. Bush does not like
black people. While Ms.
Rice and other elite blacks
,were housed in splendid
quarters during the storm,
the poor and blacks in
particular were virtually
ignored during the storm.
FEMA did not deliver any
blankets, hot cocoa, or warm
bottled water during the
entire event. There was
absolutely no effort in
evidence to get the poor
transported to Florida to
escape the driven snow.
In their ever continuing
zest to gain a level playing
field, Mr. Sharpton and Mr.
Jackson held a joint press
conference and demanded to
know why snow was always
white. The city councils of
many Eastern cities came
under criticism for not
sending out work crews to
clean off sidewalks so that
people could get out and buy
their lottery tickets. The
breaking point was reached
when several cable
companies could not restore
service until after the storm
and many could not recline
on their derrieres and watch
Jerry Springer and Oprah
while in a semi-coma.
The timing of the snow
storm is most suspicious, is
it only a coincident that the
storm occurred during the
uproar about domestic
spying? John Kerry and
Howard Dean were quick to
criticize the President for his
slow response to the ever
heightening mounds of
snow. Dean hinted that he
would demand an
investigation after his new


What makes a good mystery?
Well, let's see. You need a plot. Then you
need a set of characters. If you are a good
enough writer you might be able to slide a
couple of sub-plots in the mix.
Of course you will need a hero and an
antagonist.
I think I have a good mystery to write about.
Actually I think it is being played out right
before our eyes.
All I have to do is take a few notes and put
it all together at some point in the future.
Let's see where will I start?
I think I'll start with the county.
That might be a whole book of mysteries
within itself.
First, what is the plot or in this case what
are the plots?
Let's see, could it be growth or even better
the direction growth will take.
What if we make growth the main plot, as
in what direction is growth going.
So, who are the characters?
Well, thankfully in this mystery we have
plenty of characters. That is always a
problem for a writer you know, developing
characters. So with all of these characters,
this will be an easy task.
Let's start with the county commission.
Five characters in this mystery. They are as
diversified on this issue as you can get.
Sometimes for, sometimes against and
sometimes straddling the fence.
Just for the fun of it, how about throwing in
a moratorium for six months on growth, our
main plot by the way in this developing
mystery.
How about a little side plot with septic
tanks and central sewage systems as a little
twist in-the major plot. That throws the
reader off a little and sends them on a wild
goose chase after a counterfeit nemesis.
Now for a few more characters.
Let's see, you have the land barons (this
takes in all of the property owners by the


self-medication kicks in.
Kerry hypnotized that all
right thinking individuals
should know that snow is
only desirable where one
might like to ski, and that
the President being from
Texas, was out of his depth
in allowing the snow in
major metropolitan areas
where even the most obtuse
realize that one cannot ski
among large buildings.
The New York Times, in
one of their best
investigative efforts,
discovered that Vice-
President Cheney owns
stock in Lowe's and Home
Depot and has allowed price
gouging and rejected
competitive bidding for
snow shovels for
government entities who are
helping to remove snow. It is
anticipated that Lowe's and
Home Depot will come
under investigation for price
gouging and over billing.

Oh! And lest we forget there is a small, but
important list of characters: the industries

They are the most dangerous characters in

all of the wrong reasons. It's their idea to
keep people down, so that they can control
them.

P and Z board approves Magnolia Forest expansion


by BYRON SPIRES
Times Staff Writer
Magnolia Forest Subdivision
east of Quincy on US 90 is
expanding.
The Gadsden County
Planning and Zoning Board
approved the final plat of
phases two and four of the
subdivision.
The two phases will consist
of 52 single family home lots
with two streets, two
stormwater management areas
and four tracts for common area
open space. The lots will range
in size from 1.0 acre to 1.9
acres with an average lot size of
1.25 acres, and will have
underground utilities provided
by .the City of Quincy. The
subdivision lies outside of
Quincy'ss .sewage system,
therefore the 52 lots will use
septic tanks.
Barry Poole, representing
Poole Engineering spoke for the
property owner concerning the
subdivision's Homeowner
Association's covenants and
restriction in respect to septic
tanks. Poole said that the C and

pump outs.
Poole said that former
growth management director
Bruce Ballister said Magnolia's
C and R were some of the best


he had seen.
When asked if there had
been any problems with
homeowners of the first phase
of the subdivision concerning
the septic tank pump outs and
additional dues, Poole said there
had been none. Poole added that
the sandy land at Magnolia
Forest was ideal for septic
tanks.
Board member Anthony
Powell asked if the City of
Quincy was to extend its
sewage system to the area,
would the Magnolia Forest
residents be required to connect
to the central system.
Growth management director
Bill McCord said that if the
system was to become available
with in two years that
connecting would be required.
After three years he added there
would be no requirement to
connect.
Poole said that the cost of tap
fees and hooking to the system
would be high. He did not say
there was a requirement to
hook-up, but said that usually
residents will hook-up if their
septic tanks fail and a sewage


system is available.
In other business:
The board approved a
variance request for Hampton
Inn currently being built at the
intersection of Pat Thomas

',. ,' /
Hermant Patel speaks
about sign variances at
new Hampton Inn
Parkway and Interstate 10. The
variance will allow the motel to
place a 65 foot high sign near
the interchange on their
property. It will also give them
one additional sign on the
building and a 12.5 foot high
sign adjacent to Spooner Road


at the entrance way of the
motel.
The county's ordnance reads
that the applicant must have 500
feet of highway frontage. The
Hampton Inn property is only
493 feet along the interstate.
The variance was for the
additional seven feet.
The board approved a small
scale comprehensive plan"
amendment for 5.66 acres at the'
intersection of McCall Bridge
Road and Bear Creek Road.
The amendment changes the
Agriculture Three (Ag 3)
property to Rural Residential
(RR). The RR allows up to one
lot per acre. The property owner

Thomas is calling the failure to
pay bills on time "embarrassing"
for the board of county
commissioners and said it sends a
message to vendors that they are
not responsible.
In one case, Thomas said a

agreement.
In the memo he told
commissioners he has "the
statutory responsibility to both
audit your bills and pay them -
that is not an authority that you
may delegate to your staff. I must

off to a rocky start when he first
joined the county's staff but that
he made a commitment to the

still flow. -
What it meant to lose you both,
no one will ever know.
Our lives go on without you,

We think of you everyday, some-

You will never be forgotten
your spirit still lives on.
We miss you, we love you but

know who he was. When we got
there we recognized him. He had
become disoriented and was in

He said Moore was in good
physical shape considering the
length of time he spent in the
woods. "He has been checked out
by a doctor and did not have to be
hospitalized," Morgan said.


The theft occurred February 24, when an

... Quincy considers change in



police, fire retirement fund


-by BYRON SPIRES
Times Staff Writer

How to handle the Quincy firefighter and police
retirement fund was the question commissioners
wrestled with at Tuesday afternoon's workshop.
Firefighter Todd Pierce, representing the board of
trustees for the Police and Firefighter supplemental
retirement fund, proposed to the commission that
the city's current two plan system be merged into
one plan.
Currently the city puts twelve percent of the
officers salaries into a city sponsored retirement
fund. The officers can option to set aside seven
percent of their salary into the supplemental plan.
Pierce suggested the money from the city and the
money collected from the officers be funneled into
the supplemental plan. The plan is locally owned
and operated by the board of trustees which includes
firefighters, police officers, at least one city
commissioner, and an actuary, and is regulated by
the state.
When asked by Mayor Sherrie Taylor about the
consensus of the firefighters and police officers,
Pierce responded that he had polled the officers and
of the 19 polled, 18 said yes.
Then Pierce was asked if all of the officers had
been polled. He said only those that belonged to the
supplemental plan had been polled. There are 26
officers currently enrolled in the supplemental plan,
Pierce said.
Over the past several months the supplemental


plan has been discussed in the commissioner
meetings. One lingering problem has been those thai
have opted out of the plan. It was discussed at the
time that those who had opted out of the plan could
not re-enroll, which creates a problem.
Commissioner Derrick Elias asked if the city
decided to create just one plan would those thai
opted out be allowed back in.
Firefighter Victor Geiger responded to the
question and said he felt that they would be allowed
back in, but could not give a concrete answer
without further investigation. Geiger did say that,
those who were currently retired would not be'
affected by the change if approved.
Currently the city has 21 firefighters and 33 police
officers that could be affected by the decision.
No decision was made at the workshop.
Taylor instructed the city manager and city
attorney to prepare a proposal and have it on the,
next agenda.

CRA turns down


beautification for


housing rehab


by BYRON SPIRES
Times Staff Writer

A plan to beautify the west side
of Quincy went down in flames at
this month's Community
Redevelopment Agency (CRA)
board meeting.
The city commissioners now act
as the CRA board and meet once
a month prior to their regular
scheduled commission meeting.
Board member Keith Dowdell's
proposal to erect either
monuments or. flags throughout
district's One and Four failed to
garner enough votes to become a
reality. The proposal had a
$15,000 price tag.
Dowdell held a district meeting
to generate input about ways to
beautify the area along west
Martin Luther King Blvd. He
said that over the years the area
has become known as the
"subdivision" and he and many
of his constituents wanted some
of the more historical areas
recognized.
Dowdell presented* the board
with a map that designated
historical areas based on
information he had gathered. As
an example he used an area locals
called "Lick Skillet". The
plans were to put up a monument
naming the area.
The local American Legion
Auxiliary had offered to maintain
the areas and plant flowers.
Others, Dowdell said, were
willing to provide much of the
labor to erect the monuments.
If the monuments did not work
out then there was a plan to
install flags with the same

federal drought
The USDA's Farm Service
Agency (FSA) is offering federal
disaster assistance loans to
eligible family farmers recently
affected by drought, announced
FSA State Executive Director
Kevin L. Kelley.
Eligible Florida farmers and
ranchers may qualify for
Emergency Loan assistance,
according to the provisions of the
"Emergency' Agricultural Credit
Act of 1984" (Public Law 98-
258). Emergency loan
applications will be received
through November 7, 2006.
Secretary of Agriculture has
designated the following eligible
counties as a natural disaster area
based on damages and losses
caused by ongoing drought that
began on August 1, 2005: B,
Baker, Columbia, Gadsden,
Jackson, Jefferson, and Leon.
Farmers and ranchers in the
above-named Florida counties
who sustained physical and
production losses as a result of
the disaster and wish to apply for
an Emergency Loan to assist
them in recovering from the loss
resulting from this disaster may
apply at the following FSA
offices:
o Baker and Columbia:
2304 SW Main Blvd, Suite 103
Lake City, FL (386) 752-8447
o Gadsden, Jefferson, and

information.
Chairperson Sherrie Taylor,
who has wanted CRA money
used for housing rehabilitation,
said she was against the project.
Taylor had complained when
the CRA spent money on benches
and metal trash cans for
downtown.
Board member Derrick Elias
agreed with Taylor and felt the
money should be used for
rehabbing houses as well.
Dowdell was not alone in his
wish to beautify the western part
of Quincy. Board member Andy
Gay agreed that a portion of the
CRA money should be spent on
the project.
The project would help bring
some pride to the area and
encourage residents to clean up
their neighborhoods, Dowdell
said.
Elias and Taylor voted against
the motion with Dowdell and
Gay voting for the measure.
Board member Finley Cook was
not present at the vote. A
two-two tie vote defeats a
motion.
Dowdell was not finished after
the vote. "If you knew you. were
going to vote it down-why let
people go out and do the work,"
Dowdell asked, adding, "You do
the same thing with the city
manager."
In a related matter CRA
citizens committee member (an
advisory committee) Willie
Jackson told the board that the
committee was looking into
house rehab for next year's
budget.

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.

On Monday, February 27,
Greensboro Elementary had their
FCAT Pep Rally. Parents,
faculty, and administrators came
together at 7 a.m. to greet the
children with cheering voices and
bright smiles as they exited the

cars. Everyone brought
noisemakers, pom poms,
cowbells, whistles, tambourines,

were very surprised and the
smiles on their faces were


priceless. Special guests were

St. John Elementary
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

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,

with inspirational quiet moment

All in all, we realized that we
could not do it all by ourselves.
Thus, we reached out to our

great in stepping in and helping

SAINT PATRICK'S DAY
Saint Patrick's Day is celebrated every year on March 17th. This holiday celebrates the memory and life of Ireland's patron saint, Saint Patrick. Saint
Patrick's Day celebrations have been going on for hundreds and hundreds of years in Ireland as a religious holiday. In years past it has become a popular
holiday even among those who do not celebrate its Christian meaning. In 1762 the first Saint Patrick's Day parade was held in New York City. There are now parades in
many major cities around the world including Dublin, Ireland. The day has become known for these parades, as well as traditions such as wearing green.
Saint Patrick, or Patricius, was born in Britain in the early 400's A,0D. as Maewyn Succat. Succat took the name Patricius later in life when he entered a monastery.
His mother was named Conchessa and his father, a Christian deacon, was named Calpumius. Though his parents were Christian he did not have a strong religious
upbringing. As a young man he was kidnapped and taken to Ireland where he was forced into slavery. According to his own autobiography, The Confessio, he escaped
at age twenty two. It was at this time that he entered the monastery. After he left the monastery he returned to Ireland as a missionary. Upon his arrival he was aided by
a man named Dichiu, who later became a saint as well. He at first encountered some conflict with the local authority, The High King of Tara, but later came to an
agreement with the king and was allowed to freely spread his message of Christianity. Eventually almost all of Ireland would convert from the Druid paganism to
Christianity. For this reason Patricius was made a saint, Legend has it that Saint Patrick died on March 17th, 493 A.D. It was for this reason that March 17th was marked
as the religious holiday honoring Saint Patrick.
Many traditions surround Ireland and the holiday of Saint Patrick's Day. One of the most recognized traditions today is the act of wearing green on the holiday to avoid
being pinched, which is seen more in America than other parts of the world. Among other popular legends is the shamrock, or four leaf clovers, believed to bring good
luck to anyone that finds one. Another Irish tradition was the belief that horseshoe's carried good luck. This legend originated when horseshoe's became a standard gift

FCAT motivational rally at James A. Shanks Middle School


In an effort to promote a stress and doubt-free environment, the 21st Century Community Learning
Centers held an FCAT motivational rally on February 25th at James A. Shanks Middle School. 21st
Century students from Shanks Middle, East Gadsden High, West Gadsden High, Chattahoochee
Elementary, and Havana Middle School participated in this very worthwhile event. Ms. Bianca Smith,
Character Building Coordinator for Investing In Our Youth, encouraged students that they were better
prepared for the test than they knew or believed. Ms. Smith stated to students that because the district,
administrators, teachers, and staff were well prepared, then it makes sense that they, the students were well
prepared also. The students were further encouraged through a mantra of affirmation:
We are one with ourselves
We can do anything we set our minds to
We are achievers
WE ARE FCAT ACHIEVERS!!!!
After the rally, all 21st CCLC site participates had lunch in Tallahassee and attended the the FAMU vs

results for students with disabilities, with more than 90
percent of Florida HS/HT graduates entering post-
secondary education, vocational training or securing
employment in 2005.
The Leon and Gadsden County HS/HT programs

By Joe Ferolito
Times Sports Editor

One is headed to Rice, the other has
yet to make a decision, between them
they have been named to their
respective All-County basketball
teams seven times. Shyrelle Home
and Craig Bolton top this years All-
County picks in their senior seasons.
Home who signed early with Rice
in September led her East Gadsden
team to the region finals scoring 14
points and averaging 11 assists a
game. The wispy Home also was a
force on defense and her energy on
both ends of the court help the Lady
Jaguars come from behind in their
first two games in the region. She is a
three time All-County pick.


Bolton is a four time pick and has
yet to decide where he'll play college
basketball though it might well be
Altanta Christian where his brother,
Derrick and his 'sister Heather,
played.
The cat quick Bolton averaged also
22 points per contest and 12
rebounds.
Home was joined on the All-
County girl's team by senior team
mate Erica Neal who averaged 15
points a contest and Traci Lewis,
and Jasmine Grice, a pair of East
Gadsden underclassmen, that figure
to help keep the East Gadsden
program one of the top ones around.
West Gadsden another county
school that made it to the regional
finals has three players on the team


headed by junior Chelsea McMillan
who is a repeater off last years team.
McMillan figures to be highly
recruited next year. West Gadsden's
other two selections are Tyeshia
Battles and Lateesha Colston a
sophomore and junior player that
along with McMillan will make the
Lady Panthers tough to cope with
again next year.
Craig Bolton's cousin Lydia
represents Tallavana Christian on the
girl's team. She is a senior who had a
knack for hitting three-pointers.
Rounding out the All-County girl's
team are a pair of Munroe
sophomores Crystal wade and
Mallorie McKinnon both who are
multiple sports stand outs at the Mt.
Pleasant school.


On the boys team Bolton is
joined by only one other senior. That
being West Gadsden's Chris Atkins
who also made the All-County
football team and is headed to East
Carolina on a football scholarship.
A pair of Jackson's, Larry and
Ronnie also represent West Gadsden
on the team. Both are juniors. Larry
averaged over 14 rebounds a game,
and Jackson averaged over 12 points
a game. Both figure to help the
Panthers be a force in the Big Bend
next year.
Another force should be East
Gadsden. Like the girl's the boys
placed four members on their
respective All-County team. All four
players are underclassmen.
Sophomore Samuel McLaurin


made it for the second time as he had
another banner year.
The 6-6 post player led the Big
Bend in rebounding averaging close
to 20 a contest.
6-3 fellow sophomore Rashard
McGill and juniors Darius Jackson
and Patrick Smith also represent East
Gadsden on this years boys team.
Jackson like Atkins was an All-
County football pick.
John Dooner from Munroe made
the team a second time though just a
junior. Dooner averaged over 15
points a game. One of the eight
underclassmen on the boy's team
Dooner like the rest of them give
their schools fans something to look
forward too next year.

NIARCH MADNESS NCAA TOURNAMENT


March Madness is here. The first parn of it. the conference
tournaments are over. One thmg about those tournaments if you Iose
you still can play. If you bave a winnmmng record you'll more than


likely make the NCAA tournament or the NIT.
Now it's one loss and done. No matter your record, ranking, fan
base or what ever else. A loss now and you go home. And at
sometime or the other everyone but one in either tournament goes
home mad. Because at the end only one remains standing.
I'm going to give my predictions for the first round of the NCAA
March Madness part that takes place this week-end.
64 teams enter the week-end and only 16 survive. Don't bet these
in your office pool but here's my 16 picks.

AT-L.ANTA BRACKET

Oakland as, ihe J.iyh.aks ,..sweep Bradley and Pittlubuig. Cionzaga
whips Xavier and tIndiana. and LICLA tops Belmont and Alabama.


WASHINGTON D.C. BRACKET
Top seed Connecticut makes it to the Nations C:ipiial easily with
wins over Albany and Kentucky. Illinois, North Carolina, and
Tennessee will also be in D.C. next week. Illinois will get there by
rocking Air Force and Utah State, this years 12 seed that will beat a 5
seed Washington. North Carolina whips Murray State and Michigan
State to get to the Capital and Tennessee bests Winthrop and Setcon
hall on the campaign trail.

MINNEAPOLIS BRACKET
This is the one the Gaioi' are in and they will get to Minnesota
but it '.till be a struggle as the\ use the Jacksonville home advantage
to edge South Alabama and Oklahoma.
Number one seed \ illanoa also gets to Minnesota with wins
o-er Monmriiiouth and Wisconsin Boston College will beat Pacific and
Ne'.ada to gIt iheie % whilee Ohio State joins Florida, Boston College,.

because ahvthing and ce.ryv thing can and will happen.

MARCH MADNESS NIT
Closer to home March Madness will be in the Civic Center
Fnda\ night \%ith the disappointed FSU team hosting Butler. If the

Health Care

Revival

The 3rd Gadsden County Health
Care Revival will be celebrated
on March 25 from 9 am to 3 pm,
at the FAMU/Gretna Wellness
Center, located at 1.4678 Main
Street, next to the Gretna Post
Office, approximately 9 miles
from the Gadsden County
Courthouse on the left.
. The Florida Agriculture and
Mechanical University (FAMU)
and the Harvard School of Public
Health (HSPH) Center for
Healthy Options and Innovative
Community Empowerment
(Project CHOICE) are requesting
your attendance and participation
in the event.
The event will serve as an
occasion to advance the Faith-
based Approach to Community
Health, enhance unity among the
universities and the community,
.and a chance to further develop
the holistic health services
partnership.
The faith-based community is
and must remain at the forefront
of promoting healthy
communities and lifestyles. Our
community outreach efforts
throughout Gadsden County
identify faith-based partners as a


valued member of the community
as you provide leadership and
representation of the citizens of
Gadsden County. The role of the
faith-based community is
extremely important in the
community, and together we can
empower people with lifesaving
information. Project CHOICE
has developed a Health Care
Revival Action Team to further
mobilize communities of faith
into action. If you have a health
ministry or wish to collaborate
with other churches in your
community, please come. It is our
desire to further develop the
community in conjunction with
the Gadsden County Community
Health Council to unify effective
and sustainable health initiatives
in Gadsden County.
Transportation is needed to
make this event a success for our
citizens in Gadsden County. If


your church has a van or bus, we
ask you to provide transportation
for your congregation, and if
possible assist in the community.
Project CHOICE is a
community-based participatory
research project investigating the
social and environmental
determinants of hypertension in
the rural and urban communities
of Gadsden County and. Roxbury
Massachusetts. We have been
surveying the communities of
Gadsden County and have asked
that you lend your voice and we
will continue to request your
input as you participate in the
focus group sessions, and
convenience sample survey
administration during the revival.
The focus group sessions will
address, stress, blood pressure
and other effects of stress,
prostate cancer, Alzheimer, lead
exposure, and obesity.


Health Care Revival activities
will include health screening,
focus groups on health issues in
Gadsden County, presentations
on health disparities, community
health professionals and lay
persons.
In understanding the issues of
Gadsden County Project
CHOICE will look at health
problems and their causes in
Gadsden County and in Roxbury.
In particular, the project will look
at hypertension and potential
causes such as exposure to lead,
job stress, and racial
discrimination. Project CHQICE
has a pilot project with FSU
Center for Health Equity to study
infant mortality. CHOICE will
also study the relationship
between health and spirituality.
Our theme is to "eliminate health
disparities through research,
training, community outreach,


coalition building, and social
transformation."
If you wish to assist in this
event, participate in the Health
Care Revival Action Team
activities, or have any questions,
please call Mrs. Angela Burgess
at (850) 875-4018 or Dr. Richard
Gragg at 599-8549.

Chattahoochee city manager Lee Garner gave city
council members an update concerning the street
into Crawfish Island. Crawfish Island has only one
way in and out of the area across a two set of rail
road tracks.
Garner said that the safety of the residents had
drawn a lot of attention in the last few years,
especially the older residents. The low-lying area is
subject to flooding and when a train stops at the
crossing it cuts off any access to the neighborhood
of about forty residents.
Garner has contacted representatives of the Florida
Department of Environmental Regulations and US
Senator Bill Nelson concerning the issue. Plans are
for a citizens group of residents from the area to
petition the local legislative delegation to help with
possible funding for another exit from Crawfish
Island.
In other business:
A check for $994.25 was presented by Ira


Daniels, Chairman of the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
celebration to the Chattahoochee Elementary
School. The money was raised from proceeds at the
recent celebration event.
The council reviewed a petition from residents of
the lower portion of Morgan Avenue, requesting
speed bumps. Garner was instructed to solicit input
from residents of the street and give the council a
report at the March 20 workshop.
Garner informed the council that proposals for
street resurfacing had been sent out to asphalt
contractors.
A FRDAP grant for playground equipment at the
Southside school, Garner told the council, was being
applied for.
Garner stated that the "Hooks for Books Open"
bass tournament will be held on Saturday, March
25, at Jack Wingate's Lodge on Lake Seminole. The
tournament will benefit the new Chattahoochee
Public Library. Entrance fee is $100 per boat. For
more information Garner said you can call Clay
Wells at 850-663-8000.

Quincy Garden Club Beautification Project


Members from the Quincy Garden Club's Camellia Circle put on their work gloves and spent a
morning doing some container gardening at the Dick Howser Center in Quincy. Four times a year one
of the four circles of the Quincy Garden Club takes a turn at planting annuals in various containers
around the center. The children at the center then enjoy the opportunity to water the flowers and
watch them grow. The Quincy Garden Club has other various gardening projects throughout the
year in our community.


'High performance'

retreat shows county

commissioners how

to gain support

by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
Dr. Larry Gross held class Friday morning for
members of the Gadsden County Board of County
Commissioners. In its first "high performance"
retreat, commissioners learned the ins and outs of
protocol. "They were learning the boundaries and
how to treat each other," said Marlon Brown,
county manager.
Only three members of the board attended the
retreat that was held in the public meeting room of
the Main Library on Pat Thomas Parkway,
although the facility has yet to open to the public.
The retreat focused on how each commissioner
can get his or her point across to other board
members for maximum support. "Each
commissioner has his own areas of interest and
expertise and desires to be involved as much as
practical in activities in several areas," said Gross.
former director of the Florida Center for Public
Management.
Those areas are:
* informing the individual commissioners on
topics of interest, including what is going on
presently and in the future.
* inviting individual commissioners to participate
with the chair in activities associated with issues.
* requesting assistance from commissioners in
representing the county on issues.
Friday's retreat, keyed on leadership skills as well

Forest. The paving project began at State Road 20

springs in the area.

Dr. Larry Gross
as effective communications, was one of several
planned to help commissioners do their jobs better.
"Most commissions go through some type of
training. This board is fortunate to have a facilitator
like Dr. Gross leading the effort," Brown said.
Gross said the purpose of the retreat is to take the
Board to "the next level of leadership."

take over the duties of
intergovernmental relations officer

"Famita Sanders has been
handling that up until now and I

just when the session is
beginning," Marlon Brown said.
Brown was a co-founder of the

nationals in Daytona Beach. This
is the first time in the history of
Gadsden County that a school has
been invited to participate in: the

for them, because not just
anybody is invited," he said.
But JROTC is intended to instill

He said he would like to see
JROTC mandatory for all

Local artists show at Bainbridge; McKeown wins


Watercolor artist Margaret McCrea will bring
her art to Bainbridge as part of this year's
Riverside Artsfest, March 15-18.
The artist will be showing her works of mostly
- Maine marine subjects and shorelines in a gallery
display at the Southwest Georgia Regional
Library. Also on display will be juried show for
,. regional artists, plus the Bainbridge Artists Guild
,. and a student art show.
.- Most art events, receptions and book signing,


all free and open to the public, will take place
this year at the library, due to the unavailability
and beginnings of restoration of the Firehouse
Gallery. As an educational as well as an
entertainment event, Riverside Artsfest salutes a
featured state each year to create a better
understanding of our neighbors. This year, it is
the state of Maine.
This year's Artsfest includes the usual events of
brown bag entertainment lunches, musical and


artistic evening performances at various
Bainbridge locations, and a full slate of events on
Saturday in Willis Park. The Bainbridge College
Library will host a show by Maine photographer
Carl Jackson.
Saturday March 18 events will also include an
antique car show, craft demonstrations, arts and
crafts sales, a magic show, dancers and
gymnasts, musical programs, and puppeteer
Conrad Hartz.


Garbage

was so far behind residents did
not know when the trucks would
be in their neighborhoods.
Woolover said the trucks would
run until all of the garbage was
collected.
"So we can tell our residents to
leave their garbage out until it is
picked up," Gay said.
"Yes," Woolover said.
Mayor Sherrie Taylor was not
pleased with Woolover' s
response to the problem being
corrected and not happening
again. "I forsee the- problem
again in a few weeks," Taylor
told Woolover. She added that he
should bring his boss to the next
city meeting and a back-up plan.
"We need something more
concrete," Taylor said.
In other business:
The commission heard from
Michael King representing
Progress Energy. King talked
about some of the problems
facing the energy market and the
rising cost of utilities.
He said that Florida's
geographical boundaries created
a unique problem. Florida he said
needed to produce most of its
own electricity. Electricity
coming in across Florida's
northern borders was now at peak
production. In the future he said
to look for additional power
plants and, with the increase in
natural gas, some of those could
be coal or nuclear.
Prices he said have risen over
the past four years and will
probably continue to rise. King
said that Quincy was locked in at
one of the state's best prices. He
compared Quincy to the Havana
rate which is provided by a
competitor. "At Havana's rate,


Quincy would have paid $1.6
million more in 2005," King said.
The Progress Energy contract is
in effect for two more years, he
said.
Utility bills were again an
issue at hand for commissioners.
After a lengthy presentation
about how utility bills were
figured, Cook asked city manager
Willie Earl Banks to provide the
commission with a spread sheet
of utility expenses and revenues.
"I want to know where the
problem in cash flow is at," Cook
asked.
Elias and Taylor had concerns
as well over how the meter
readings were entered into the
billing process and the possibility
of manipulating bills.
"How does a 90-year old woman
have a $600 water bill," Taylor
asked.
City attorney Jack McLean
suggested the commission look at
having a rate study done. No
action was taken on the bills.
Request for the use of the
south side of the Quincy
Business Park for a Cumulus
Broadcasting Anniversary Car
show was postponed until the
March 28 meeting. Elias
had concerns that the for-profit
($10 per ticket) event needed to
be advertised locally to give
residents outside the city along
Joe Adams Road an opportunity
to respond to the request.
Plans are for between 2,000 and
3,000 people to attend the Noon
to 8 p.m. Sunday afternoon event
in late April.

For some time since I had my

My .
answer
is that

gonna
re'enlist
ee, and in a
ret few
cy weeks,
I'll be in Iraqi. That's a joke of
;nt" course, but iffen I was running the
rs. show, the politicians would stay
or in Washington, the news media
ret would stay in New York and let
all the military do what's ness-sary
ce to bring about piece in that
he nation. Or I would make glass
out of the sand that is everywhere


municipalities and non-profit organizations to
determine the needs for sporting activities
throughout the county. He also asked
commissioners to take a few moments to rank the
recreational needs in their district into four
categories: park renovations, recreational activity
development, parks open space-historical
landmarks, and aquatics.
One of the main features of his presentation
included an overview of a state-of-the art
community center in Jupiter. The local community
center, if funding can be found, would have between
40,000 and 60,000 square feet of indoor space, two
basketball gymnasiums, age specific classrooms,
catering kitchen, auditorium, dinning hall and office
and conference center.
In case of an emergency, such as a hurricane, the
facility could be quickly converted into a shelter
that would feature temporary housing, storage for
emergency supplies, emergency'room conversion,
and become the emergency base of operations.
Marion Brown, county manager, said he will work
with Palm Beach County and the City of Jupiter for
a site visit if the commissioners wanted to see the
facility first hand.


but I'll never be and it will
never be.
The Jack Wingate Open drew
45 boats from some of the best
fishermen in the Tri-State area.
First place went to Stevens and
Johnson of Jackson Co., FL with
Big Fish at 8.80. Total weight
was 5 fish at 22.88 lbs. Second
place went to Zom and Carver
with 22.07. Third place went to
Brown and Brown with 21.26.
Last place went to Tyre and
Prindle with 17.88. Great day of
fishing. 90% of the fishermen
limited with 5 Bass.
Talking with several top notch
Perch Fishermen, they are telling
me that I the, Perch Fishermen
will use a 16 oz. Jig in shallow
water they will catch more Perch
and bigger Perch than they do if
they use Minnows. Now they
also say that once in awhile you
must use a small very small
Minnow to tip your Jig with.
These are things that I learn from
talking to the Pro Fishermen.
A few Bream and Shellcrackers
has been in the shallow water.
