The mother of two West
Gadsden High School. students,
Tammy Williams Davis, was
arrested Thursday afternoon and
charged with two counts of
aggravated assault and one count
of possession of a firearm on
school property after she
allegedly pulled a gun on two
girls who had a verbal
confrontation with her daughters.
Davis, 34, allegedly pointed a
.357 magnum revolver that was
in her car at the two female
students who had been arguing
with her
daughters
around 3:20
sp.m. hDavis
also had 40
rounds of
bullets in the
trunk of her
car, according
to a report on
file and
Tammy released by

Police Chief
Marianne Scholer.
Davis denied getting the gun
from the locked glove
compartment. She also denied
telling a daughter to get the
bullets out of the trunk, which is
where she specifically said the
bullets for the weapon were
located during the altercation.
"She denied threatening any
students with the handgun. She
said her daughters' friends knew
her husband had a gun which was
kept in the car," Scholer wrote in
her report.
Davis admitted telling her
daughters to get a tire iron from
the trunk, but said she did not
need to use it.
Chief Scholer reported that she

threatening manner.

No county


Approves school

conceptual plan

-by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

A proposal to pave streets in Greensboro
and Gretna and delay the scheduled paving
of county roads was taken off the table
during the regular meeting of the board of


county commissioners Tuesday night.
County residents, whose roads had been
on the paving list for years, filled the
audience and were ready to challenge
commissioners had the measure been
adopted.
In a memo to the BoCC dated March 9
from Marlon Brown, county manager, and
Robert Presnell, director of public works,
direction was requested on how to proceed
for the Public Works Department to
construct and pave six dirt roads and
resurface three existing roads'in the both
Gretna and Greensboro.


for city paving


"Public Works can complete the
proposed projects if the Board so directs.
However if the projects are to be
completed this fiscal year and no
additional funding source is designated the
Board also needs to select which county
roads that were approved in February that
Public Works can delay until next year so
that funding could be used to complete the
proposed projects in Gretna and
Greensboro."
The memo also refers to the county's
commitment to fund 33% of the paving of
Quail Roost.


"Greensboro and Gretna are in dire
straits. Mayor (Buddy) Pitts made it clear
that they need help and the same is true for
* Gretna. I want you to understand that those
folks in the city are represented by this
body. We've helped cities in the past,
that's nothing new," said Chairman Ed
Dixon. The county has helped cities in the
past and the cities have paid the county for
that help.
But this was different, according to the
memo. "The cities propose for Public
Works to handle the proposed projects

Midway's annexation



path still at crossroads

by BYRON SPIRES ; g i' '
Times Staff Writer ..s, .- .


Midway's Pat Thomas Law
Enforcement Academy's
annexation quandary continues.
Last Thursday night the
Midway city council held a
workshop to help them ,decide
how to handle the annexation and
a six-month moratorium
concerning large scale
development by the county.
Decisions on both issues had
been postponed at the council's
March 2 meeting until after the
workshop.
The 1264 acre PTLEA
annexation has stalled since it
was first introduced back in
February. TCC's Board of
Trustees had approved the
annexation into the city early in
the year.
The February meeting was the
first reading of the annexation
ordinance. In the past Midway
has read the ordinance and
discussed the issue on its first
reading and then voted on the
annexation at the second reading
which was to be March 2.
The ordinance generated a
tremendous amount of debate on
its first reading from a room full

County commissioners Eugene lamb, Brenda Holt, Ed Dixon and
Sterling Watson attended the Midway workshop last week


of residents.
During the debate, Jim
Murdaugh, a TCC vice president
and director of the academy
stated that one of the reasons for
TCC wanting the annexation had
been the change of the academy's
physical address. Currently the
academy has an Havana address,
as does the east Gadsden High
School. He stated the the address
created problems with directions.
Those opposed to the
annexation were concerned that
annexing the academy would


open an avenue for annexation
along the US 90 corridor east
back to Midway. The changing
face and number of new residents
were also an issue.
The annexation can occur
because the PTLEA property
adjoins the Midway city limits on
-the south side of Interstate 10.
After a lengthy and sometimes
heated debate, mayor Delores
Madison abruptly adjourned the
February meeting. A number of
items were left untouched on the

Quincy has money on its mind: How much? When?


by BYRON SPIRES
Times Staff Writer


Over the past several months the City of
Quincy has been battling a cash flow
problem.
Why the cash flow problem?
That question has been on the minds of
both city residents and the city
commissioners.
Speculations about what has caused the
problem have rumbled all over the city.
Questions are bouncing around all over
the community. Has money been stolen?
If so, who did it? Has money been
misspent? If so, by who and for what?
Are there problems with the utility meter


readings, are residents been overcharged
or undercharged? When did it start? How
long will it last?
All of those questions, and dozens more,
city commissioners hope will be answered
in the upcoming forensic audit of the
city's finances.
The City of Quincy now sits on the
threshold of a monumental task. The city
must control its spending and spend
$80,000 on a forensic audit to find out
where they are financially.
At present, to keep expenses under
control, city manager Willie Earl Banks
has put into place a hiring and spending
freeze. Part of that plan includes operating
short by nine police department


employees' and two utility positions
vacant. Since the resignation of Neva
Reed as finance director, that position has
been left vacant as well.
Banks put into place a plan to bring the
city out of the current cash flow problem.
To date the city is still struggling to pay
their bills
Where and when did the city's problems
start?
Although it will take the forensic audit
to sort all of the questions out, the
following is a synopsis of some of the
events that have brought the city to its
current dilemma.
In February of 2005 the commission
received an overview of the city's audit


for the 2002-2003 audit. The audit at that
time was past due.
The state-required audit, due every year,
is performed to make sure a municipality
is adhering to the state's accounting rules.
It is not a complete audit of the city's
financial books.
However, the auditors do in their review
mention problems they uncover
concerning bookkeeping procedures and
possible financial problems.
Ron Thompson of Watson and Rice, said
problems in completing the audit stemmed
from some qf the city's bookkeeping
problems. An accounting term, 'the due to
and due froms," were behind. Watson said

Juvenile court shows students the reality of actions


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
As field trips go, the one taken by fourth
and fifth graders from Havana Elementary
School Thursday morning was different. "I
wanted them to see what real life was
about and to understand that there are
consequences for the decisions they make
even now," said Parish Williams, teacher.
Williams, a fifth grade teacher, and
fourth grade teacher Lynn Jones t
combined their classes of about 20
students, loaded them on a school bus and
took them to juvenile court. Many of the
students have behavior problems and are
in special classes designed to help them
cope and meet their challenges.


"I just wanted them to see what happens
if they don't do the right thing," Jones
said.
If that was the intent, some of the
students didn't get it. "It was okay," said
12-year-old James about his experience.
Will the threat of punishment for
infractions on society change his behavior?
"Not really. I don't do anything anyway.
I'm always getting blamed for things I
didn't do," he said. Nothing about the
morning in court impressed James, not
even when the attorneys talked with the
group about crime and punishment.
Another student, according to Williams,
said he looked forward to putting on one

"Harold" gets key to Quincy

by BYRON SPIRES
Quincy's own Billy Dean
was presented with the "key to
the city" Sunday afternoon by
Quincy Mayor Sherrie Taylor
and city manager Willie Earl
Banks.
Dean was performing at a
fund raiser held at the
VanLandingham Farm south
of Greensboro for Nashville
studio musician Cliff Parker.
Parker played with such artist
as Waylon Jennings, Barbara
Mandrell and Johnny
Paycheck. He is facing several
health issues including
blindness. The event raised
over $6,000 for Parker
according to the event
coordinator, Jim Hobbs.
Taylor praised Dean for his
work in movies, television and
the country music industry.
She thanked him for not
playing "bad" villains in any
of his movies. Dean, she said
should be ,cnmnendedmm for,


Banks.
Dean thanked Taylor and
the City of Quincy for the
honor. Growing up in
Quincy and on Shelfer Street,
he said, had been an important
part of his life.
He attributed his success to
the support of his family and
friends.
Singing in Nashville was
something he had dreamed
about as a young kid growing
up in Quincy.
"Thank you all for this
honor," Dean said.
Dean, known locally as
Harold, is now in his second


decade as a country music
celebrity. He has acted in
several movies including one
with country music star Dolly
Parton. Also in his repertoire
are numerous TV shows
including "Wings" and most
recently "The Montel
Williams Show."
Dean will be releasing a
single April 3, opening day of
baseball season titled
"Swinging for the Fence"
about baseball. The song
comes from his recently
released CD, "Let them be
Little."


,t i Elias announces candidacy


Harold Dean plays while his
daughter Hannah sings
remembering his friends and
neighbors back home in
Gadsden County.
Taylor said the key to the
city was in honor of Dean's
faithfulness to his dream of
one day becoming a country
music star. This was a way
she said to let Dean know how
,proud the, people., of Quincy


and Gadsden County were of
his accomplishments.
The plaque read: 'Presented
to Billy H. Dean, award
winning musician: You have
exemplified a mark of
excellence through your work
as a recording artist, actor,
Television show host and
National Acclaimed Nominee.

Garbage a

There are a couple of things that affect my
daily life that I wish I knew.
First. I wish I knew when my garbage was
going to get picked up again. It is now almost
a week and the truck ha not been down my
street. if it has, it was only to take a peek and
see just how many cans were full.
Once I used this column to complain that the
trucks came to early in the morning. That they
made too much noise and that they should not
be growling through the neighborhood at 4
a.m. I'm sorry I complained about that.
Another time I used this very same column to
complain that my garbage was scattered all
over the street and that it was the rule rather
than the exception for garbage bins to be left
on their sides rather than upright. And now I
am sorry about that too. Bad service is, I
suppose, better than n service at all.
No one can really tell me when the garbage
will get picked up again. There are some
people who are getting pick up. I asked around
and several people did say that they had
service.
I listened to the explanation given by the
representative from Waste Management during
the Quincy City Commission meeting. I heard
him, but I didn't understand him. I can't
believe the company would give the City of
Tallahassee the same story they told our
commissioners if their citizens were trying to
figure when they would get service.
What i didn't hear, in all of the talk about a
tiny part that can only be manufactured in
germany, was whether or not we would get a


Withdraws from race Net Quincy


Dear Editor,


To the citizens of Quincy
District 3 I write to withdraw as a
candidate as City Commissioner
for District 3 of Quincy. I have
been greatly honored and humbled
by the confidence that the citizens
in my district have shown in me,
and have appreciated immensely
your support. I feel that it will be in
my best interest and the best
interest of the city to withdraw
from the race at this time.
Again thank you the citizens of

OFFICIAL STATEMENT

Dear Editor,

A report was made to this office
about an outside person
threatening students.
Law enforcement officials are
conducting an ongoing
investigation. It is the position of
this office and the School Board
that any person that threatens
the safety of a Gadsden County
student be prosecuted to the fullest
extent of the law.

Hospital needs

Dear Editor:

Thank goodness we have at least
one physician who lives in Quincy,
serves patients in Quincy, and is at
least making an effort to reopen
our local hospital. If Dr. Emko
can gather 324 signatures in just a
few days and was willing to go to a
County Commissioner meeting
and express his concerns and
willingness to help, the remainder
of our medical community needs
to join him and offer their support.
I have heard very little, if anything,
from other practitioners in the
community.
The problems Dr. Emko
pointed out are real and current.
We need something done to
relieve the embarrassment I feel
when I look at the medical
resources in neighboring Jackson
County and the new facility
recently opened in nearby Taylor
. County that has one third
Gadsden's population.

nd bridges Mama, flies and candy


rebate to pay for taking our own garbage to the
landfill.
Secpndly, I wish I knew when Stewart Street
would be finished. I have waited patiently for
almost a year. i have driven hundreds of miles
out of my way to get to work, to church, the
store and anyplace else I have to go
that is not south of town.
In the beginning I didn't mind the delays
because I knew why the bridge was in such of
awful state of disrepair. I am probably the
person who lives closest to that bridge. I have
lived there for more than 40 years so I know
all about that bridge. I know about the years of
neglect, If it had been repaired properly years
ago, it never would have gotten in that state.
I remember all of the times that it collapsed
the city would patch it up with clay and asphalt
and never attending to the real problem.
Finally, after all of these years the bridge is,
hopefully, getting the repairs it has needed for
40 years.
I stated asking a few weeks ago, when I
noticed that the work appeared near
completion when I could expect to resume my
normal travel route, especially with the price
of gasoline so high. Every little bit helps. I was
promised it would be last Friday. Well last
Friday came and went and I'm still going out
of my way to get to town.
Well, as they say, there is nothing wrong with
wishing. I'll just keep wishing for two thing:
may garbage to get picked up and Stewart
Street to get finished. Keep your fingers
crossed that my wishes will come true.


serious money if they got into this
end of the business in a different
way than they are doing it now.
Again, it is administration.
Finally, the technical side of
Netquincy leaves a lot to be
desired and it is not the technicians
fault. They are stuck with a bunch
of goods that they inherited. I
needed to have two particualr ports
available to my computer.
The technical nightmare that
began is undescribeable. it took 8
weeks to get this done not because
the technicians at Netquincy
weren't trying, they simply
couldn't do it and I was told they
had to contact a technician from
the company who sold them their
equipment to be able to do this.
They find themselves with a
monster not of their own creation.
The bottom line, I feel also that
Netquincy is a black hole to throw
money, down BUT the happy side
of this is, that can change but it is
going to take an administration that
wants Netquincy to shake hands
with private industry and a
management of Netquincy who
manages and leaves the technical
stuff to the technicians and systems
designers. My boss and i were
drinking coffee together once'and I
was mentioning a problem to him
and he looked at me and said I
don't want to hear about that, my
job is to manage and your job is to
think and make me look good ".
Netquincy is a great ISP but there
are some changes that must be
made if it is going to become
profitable but these changes can be
made, they must be made because
I want Netquincy to keep on being
my ISP There is a lot of
potential for long term financial
rewards for the city but changes
have to be made.

Incident at WGHS

Dear Editor,

This letter is in response to the
incident at West Gadsden on
Thursday, March 16. Tammy
Davis is my sister and until you
know the whole story don't be so
quick to judge as the media,
Greensboro's police chief and our
local school officials have already
done. When I got the call from my
brother that my sister had been
arrested and the charges, I couldn't
believe what I was hearing.
Tammy is a loving and caring
person that has had her ups and
downs just like all of us. She
wouldn't hurt anyone much less a


Dear Editor,


I was on the intemet before a
lot of the residents of Quincy ever
heard of the internet. I was
actually in college when we used "
slip sticks ( slide rules ) to make
calculations. I hated the intemet
but it was part of my job. I am
saying this not to tell you how old I
am but to say I think I have a little
knowledge about the intemet.
The Tallahassee Democrat"
really wrote an unflattering artical
about one of Quincy's assets:
Netquincy. They are right in what
they say, up to a point. They just
didn't say how to fix the problem.
First of all, the problem with
Netquincy is in the administartion
of Netquincy. John Thomas is a
fine man and a good manager but
that doesn'tmean he is a system
designer or technical person. He
is a manager. John Thomas is
only managing what was handed
to him.
The first thing I noticed about
Netquincy when I moved to
Quincy was that it took their
technician who told me he was a
contractor person over 8 hours to
get the system to my Rv from a
pole that is probably less than 75
feet from the computer., Lot of
expense involved there You
know why it took him so long ?
Two trips to the coffee shop and
then an hour off for lunch.
Where was his supervisor during
this installation and even with
his breaks this job should have
taken no more than 3 hours at the
most.
A computer in every household
is a great ideal but a stupid one !
According to the Tallahassee
Democrat" (page 6a) 16% of the
households in Quincy don't own a
car Let's see those people
were going to buy a computer
from Netquincy and pay them for
internet services while they walk to
work. Yeah, right. I know a
town that has done what
Netquincy has tried to do with the
computer program and the only
difference is they were successful
because they got private industry
invovled and let them run with he
ball. They scored a touchdown.
Now that same county has a
program with a computer
manufacturer and the kids who go
to Junior College there and also
kids in vocational training can get
jobs after they graduate and the
Federal dollars just keep rolling in.
The difference is in administration.
Quincy could easily make some


Did your Mama ever say, "If I had a nickel for
all of the times I told you to shut the door stay
in the yard leave that sore alone or be still
while I comb your hair, I'd be a rich woman."?
I guess there are a few of us around that can
remember comments like that being made by our
parents.
At times I'm sure we exasperated our parents
and they probably tired of telling us the same
thing over and over again.
Between my brother Eddie and myself, I believe
we could have made our mother a rich women,
just from being told to shut the door.
Although Eddie heard that comment more than I
did, I was not exempt from being hard headed.
A trait I still have a touch of today, by the way.
Another trait I developed along about the same
time was bargaining. I had heard my mother get
onto Eddie one day about keeping the front screen
door closed.
Now, with most homes air conditioned, keeping
a screen door closed doesn't carry quite the
weight that it did forty years ago.
A screen door left open meant that flies could get
in the house, something my mother did not
tolerate.
We may have been poor, but my mother kept a
clean house. Flies and especially roaches did not
have a chance. Of course we live in the South and
you can only hope to control insects.
"Woe be it for a bug that crossed my mother's
path in our house," I use to think
I can remember many times chasing a wayward
fly that slipped past the screen door into our
house. I would go after him with a vengeance
until I could get him with the fly swatter.
My mother, by the way did not like splattered
flies. Which meant I had to learn to kill them
without making a mess.
If I did manage to splat one too hard, it was extra
work. I had to get a rag and clean up the mess
with hot soapy water.
So, I devised a way to kill them without making
a mess.
I would catch them with my bare hands and take
them outside, strap them to a concrete block and
hit them with a hammer.
Just kidding.
Actually I just hit them with the swatter in mid-
air.
Now back to my bargaining trait.


child. But I'm not writing this
story to discuss her legal situation.
This is about what could have been
a key factor in this whole issue and
that is over-aged (adults) students
in our schools with our under age
(minors) children. This is one
prime example of something
having to be done about this.
One of the key students in this
altercation was an 18 year-old that
is in the 9th grade. Now I don't
know about the rest of our parents,
but I feel that these adults that fit
this criteria is no longer interested
in an education, but keeping our
children that are interested in
getting their education from doing
so. I'm not trying to deny them
their right to an education, which
by law I understand we must. But
we need to band together and get
these adults from with our younger
children.
There are alternatives to
attending schools with minors. Mr.
James you told me that you had
made some changes with this
situation already, but that some of
the parents didn't agree to the
changes. Well if they are eighteen,
you don't need their parent's
permission because they are
legally adults, so that just don't cut
it with me. When my children
attended school there was a 20
year-old female in one of their
classes and I just didn't
understand. Like Marvin Gaye
says in his song "What's going
on?" What will it take to do
something about this problem,
may heaven forbid, but an adult
male to prey on some of our
innocent younger female students
and have their way with them. We
have given these students twelve
years to obtain their education, I
understand that you have some that
may need and additional year, but
attending middle school when
you're 18 is ridiculous. This same
adult student told my sister that she
didn't want to fight her daughter,
because the daughter was a minor
but that she would fight her as an
adult. Tammy has been tried and
convicted by the press, the
community and our school system.
Tammy and her children have
been let down by the school


If our mother would have liked a nickel for every
time she told us to do something. Why not turn
the table?
My idea was that she could give us a nickel
every time we shut the door or whatever we were
supposed to do.
I figured I could make a chunk of money just in
door shutting alone. And if I negotiated with my
mother to make sure Eddie did the same. Say, half
a nickel and half for Eddie, I'd be rich.
I was already spending that money all over the
place, before I even approached my mother with
the idea.
Let's see, candy bars were a nickel. I could get a
Snickers bar, a Fifth Avenue, a $100,000 bar and
a Slow Poke. Then there was the penny candy, a
few pieces of Squirrel Nut Zippers, Now and
Laters, and peppermint candy.
Ice cream sandwiches were a dime, a big ol'
Double Cola belly washer was a dime. A moon
pie was a nickel.
I could go to the Saturday matinee at the Leaf
Theatre, get a drink, a candy bar, popcorn and
have money left over.
And you wonder why I'm overweight.
It was all planned out, I was going to be the
richest kid in the neighborhood.
There was one flaw in my idea.
In my kid brain it never dawned on me that I
could not get money from someone who did not
have any money to spare for my entrepreneurial
idea.
On paper it looked great and all that candy I was
going to eat sure sounded great in theory.
Reality hit me square between the eyes when my
mother explained the concept of not being able to
spend money you do not have.
She did seem agreeable to the idea, but.it
backfired on me.
My mother said anyone smart enough to come
up with such an elaborate scheme should be
intelligent enough to close the door behind them
when they went outside.
My dream of a high fat candy feast wasn't
completely lost. A few days later I found a cache
of Coke bottles and sold them to the local store
for a nickel a piece.
I got to go to the Leaf Theatre, buy a Snickers
bar and some penny candy!.


system and West Gadsden
administration as well.
You raise your children to report to
adult if and when there's a
problem with other students. This
was done and they were told that
they would handle the problem on
the next day. That delay could
have avoided this whole issue. I
was told that the same girls had
had another altercation with a
student that resulted in that student
being suspended for wanting to
protect herself. The two sisters just
got in-school suspension and
remained on campus to cause
problems for others. Let's open our
eyes and our minds and get to the
root of this problem. As I stated to
you Mr. James, "I am going to do
all that I can to rectify this
problem." No, my children are not
in the school system, but I am a
taxpayer and do have other family


members that are there. I don't
want this tragic event to happen to
anyone else. Our talk that we had
I felt was meaningful, until I
saw you on the evening news. Mr.
James it's not campaign time and I
will not let you use my sister to be
made an example of in the press to
keep your promise, of curtailing the
violence or should I say "Zero
Tolerance." Did you even look
into the situation or did you take
the word of the two students. You
look good Mr. James on television,
but you could have easily said that
we have "no comments" until the
investigation is finished.
Remember those words? Let's
just say that I'm still trying to get
the "knife out of my back" that
you placed there and you know
exactly what I mean Mr. James.

Warning! i

Code enforcement just got tough in Quincy


by BYRON SPIRES
Times Staff Writer

Have you been parking the
wrong way on city streets? Is
there an old junk car sitting in
front of your house that hasn't
been moved in a couple of years?
Or, have you used a private
dumpster to get rid of your
garbage?
If the answer is yes to any of
those item or a host of other city
code violations, then beware.
Quincy now has a code
enforcement officer who likes his
job.
Inspector Tom Murray brings a
wealth of knowledge and
experience to his job as Quincy's
code enforcement officer. Murray
said the strict enforcement of the
city's codes is his passion.
"Citizens have
complained about some of the
abandoned, run down houses in
Quincy with high grass and
weeds," Murray said.
Garbage was another issue
Murray said he intended to
attack. "If we are going to be a
premier city, then we must obey
our code enforcement laws,"
Murray said.
It is important to Murray that
Quincy be clean of abandoned
garbage or garbage thrown out of
windows. How people perceive
Quincy will be how they see us as
they ride through, Murray said.
Not paying any attention to a
citation, Murray said, would not
be tolerated. There is a
legal process to which the code
enforcement department must
adhere, and Murray said he

It can start as simply as a

Regional growth explored


by BYRON SPIRES
Times Staff Writer

A'regional approach to growth was the main topic
of the board meeting of the eight county
Opportunity Florida region last week.
At the top of the list is wireless broad band
internet services for rural areas across North Florida.
Rick Markum, executive director for the region
said the internet service was a hot item for the area.
"It is a good time for us," Markum said about the.


enterprise.
Funding he said was in the making and because
the initial numbers were not of interest to the larger
carriers, he felt it was a growth market.
This will be a public and private venture he said.
The wireless enterprise will need some subsidizing.
Plans are to work with all of the municipalities in
the eight county region.
Also on the horizon Markum said were plans for
affordable housing throughout the eight counties,
including Gadsden County.


Tobacco farmers, fans turn out for meeting


The West Gadsden Historical Society held its
monthly meeting in Greensboro on March 19.
Approximately 50 people were in attendance to hear
Kay Davis Lay speak about the old historic tobacco
barn, I Hear Hester Singing Barn, which she has
restored on her family's farm in Sawdust. Most
everyone in attendance had worked in tobacco and
some brought their children and grandchildren to learn
more about this former way of life in Gadsden County.
A few in attendance were not acquainted with the
farming of shade tobacco and were quite interested in
learning of the growing and curing process. Most of
the attendees were from Gadsden County; however,
some had traveled from Tallahassee, Carrabelle, and
Chipley in Florida as well as from Attapulgus and
Hannatown, Georgia.
Among those present were the following former
tobacco growers: Forrest Davis, Jr., George Johnson,
Marcus Edwards, Isaac Simmons, Jr., Louie Barineau,
Byron Clark, Scott Clark, and Emily Clark Rowan.


Following the presentation, everyone drove over to the
Davis Farm and enjoyed a time of reminiscing about
the by-gone tobacco days.
Please note that there will not be a meeting in April as
the monthly meeting date falls on Easter Sunday. The
Society's May 21st meeting will feature old mills and
millponds. Anyone with photographs and memories of
any old mills and millponds that they wish to share with
the group is welcome to join us. After the meeting,
everyone will drive over to Shepard's Mill for a tour by
WGHS member, Robert Dallas.
Remember to mark your calendar for the 4th of July
when the Society will host its 2nd Annual Open House
at the historic Dezell House in Greensboro. This year's
added features will include a car show, quilt show, live
band, and BBQ in addition to the bake sale and peanut
boil which were enjoyed at last year's celebration.
The Society wishes to thank everyone in Gadsden
County and the surrounding areas for their continuing
support.

Dear Citizens,

On Sunday, March 19, 2006, the Tallahassee Democrat wrote a series of stories on Quincy's finances and
NetQuincy. While the stories were not inaccurate, they did not contain all of the facts. Over the next weeks I
will be reporting to the Mayor and City Commission on the subject matters of the article. I will report to
you on matters that appear in the paper so that you have all available information, begin with NetQuincy.
Here are some of the facts that did not appear in the Tallahassee Democrat:
Birth of NetQuincy:
The Tallahassee Democrat reported that the 2003 bond series brought NetQuincy into being. The City
Commission approved the creation of NetQuincy three years before the bond transaction. On October 1,
2000, the City Commission created NetQuincy in the General Services Department. It began as an internet
dial-up service on March 1, 2001, and in October 2001, started an internet package program to place com-
puters with students enrolled in the school system. (The first 75 computer were purchased by the parents at
Carter-Paramore in November 2001)
2005 Budget Shortfall:
The Tallahassee Democrat reported that last year NetQuincy had operating revenues of $415,000 from com-
puter and internet sales to cover $710,000 in operating expenses, a shortfall of -$295,000. The shortfall is
overstated. $133,264 was charged to NetQuincy's budget for other City departments, for example:
1. 25 computers $36,250
2. 3 servers $ 5,550
3. 47 software packages $18,753
4. Broadband to serve $12,528
72 work stations
5. Payment of lease space $ 9,600
for Customer Service Department
6. WQTN Productions $24,000
These costs were either general government or other enterprise operations expenses. The expenses were paid
for by the City; however, NetQuincy was not credited for the intra-fund transfer of funds to cover these
expenses. NetQuincy's budget was also charged for the City's entire phone services of $70,000. The phone
expense was not offset by an intra-fund transfer.
The total expense for NetQuincy is $506,736 accounting for intra-fund transfers of $203,264. The operat-
ing shortfall is -$91,736, not the -$295,000 reported in the Democrat.
As with any new start-up, it takes time to build the business. NetQuincy began operating as a enterprise
fund in 2003. With the completion of the build out of NetQuincy's broadband/cable video services, contracts
with significant developments in the City, and the addition of new business customers, NetQuincy will pro-
vide significant revenues to you.
City Projection for NetOuincy Assumed No Competitors:
The Tallahassee Democrat reported that the City's plan assumed there were no telecommunication competi-
tors in the market for broadband. There were competitors, but none provided broadband services to citizens
of the City or Gadsden County. Our citizens paid for more expensive dial-up services or ISND lines than
our neighbors in Leon County. Broadband cost citizens $49.99 per month in 2004. Beginning in June 2005,
citizens have the option to sign-up for Broadband with NetQuincy for $29.99 and video/cable for $39.99.
Our first video customer is Arbor Crest, located at 64 North Cleveland Street. Without the foresight of the
Mayor and City Commission, you would not have this option.
Benefit to Citizens:
You have not reaped the full benefits of NetQuincy, but there are tangible benefits today:
1. Private providers now see a small town as a market for the full range of telecommunication services.
2. The availability of competitively priced telecommunication services: NetQuincy Broadband costs $29.99
with top speed vs. the private providers with less speed at the same or more cost.
NetQuincy video cable services (with 71 channels) costs $39.99 vs. private providers for $54.99 or more
(with 71 channels)
3. 700 students with computers to use for educational purposes.
4. Fiber optimally wire community services capable of providing remote meter reading, and enhancing fire
and police protection.
5. Competitively priced telecommunication for businesses in the City's business park; a must to attract
business.
Now that NetQuincy is built out, the City, through the Mayor and City Commission, is in a better position to
deliver telecommunication to you because they have the capability to negotiate, partner or compete in the
telecommunication marketplace through ownership of NetQuincy.

Sincerely,


Earl Banks
Quincy City Manager

.JF Lord, Thank You
/ | for Our Father

It's hard to believe that ten (10) years have passed So much has happened, (
some good and some bad There's not a day that goes by that we don't miss "
your smile. Your presence just made us feel like we could float for miles.
There have been times when we shed tears to get us through. Lord Thank
You for giving us a Father like You. You instilled in us values we use to
this Day. Sometimes I wonder why you had to be taken away. Your wife
misses you, she sometimes thinks you are still here. Maybe she sees what
we can't since you two were such a great pair. We love you now just as
much as we did then. We're holding on to the Faith that we will see you
* again. So until then, Mr Willie Joe Kelly, Sr., keep smiling on us. Let
Grandma, Granddaddy, Diedra, Morris, Uncle Albert(Lil Bro'), Uncle
Robert, Aunt Jesse Mae(Cutice), Rick and Wayne know that we miss them
so much and this is just a small way of showing Our Love.

Father files suit on County


behalf of son who


was allegedly raped


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

The father of a Gadsden County
youth confined to the Leon
Regional Juvenile Detention
Center in Tallahassee is suing the
State of Florida and the Secretary
of the Department. of Juvenile
Justice on behalf of his son for
damages in excess of $15,000.
The man's son, Robert, was
allegedly raped by another
juvenile while confined last
summer.
The case became public last fall
when Robert's grandmother and
aunt announced their intentions to
file a lawsuit through Tallahassee
attorneys Daryl Parks and Ben
Crump. The grandmother and
aunt had the responsibility of
rearing the boy, since the death of
his mother two years ago. Robert
at age 15 has the IQ of a 13
month old toddler. The boy's
father, who lives in Hernando
County, filed the charges last
Thursday afternoon through his
attorney, Michael Rayne.
From May 24, 2005 through
June 26, 2005 the teenager was
housed at the Detention Center.
"He is autistic," and according to
the suit, "despite extensive
occupation, speech, and physical
therapy, Robert can not perform
the activities of daily living. He
cannot communicate written or
orally his thoughts and concerns.
He is totally dependent on others
to protect him from harm.", the
suit states.


At issue is the allegation that
another detainee, Lee Denton,
who was facing a sexual battery
charge on a child under 12, was
given the responsibility of the
personal care of Robert, which
may have included changing his
diapers.
The suit states that at least 13
youths said that Denton
frequently bathed Robert and
changed his diapers and that he
was often alone with him. Robert
was under what is called "sight
and sound observation" which
'means he was to be housed in a
room alone with no one allowed
entry except detention center
staff. Denton was also under sight
and sound observation.
At least two youths at the
center, according to the suit,
observed Denton having sex with
Robert on two separate
occasions. Both events, also
according to the suit, were
brought to the attention of center
officials on duty.
Robert's father maintains that
the State of Florida and DJJ
Secretary Anthony Schembir
failed to properly supervise the
detention center's staff, failed to
maintain a safe environment for
the residents, failed to properly
train the staff to care for residents
with special needs, and failed to
maintain proper human dignity
and order in the center.
These events, the suit alleges,
caused Robert to be sexually
abused twice.


Search for missing


Tallahassee woman


reaches to Gadsden


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

The search for a missing
Tallahassee woman, Ali Gilmore,
came to Gadsden County
Tuesday morning. Angel Linle.
friend and co-worker of Gilnmiic,
met with chief law enforcement
personnel from throughout the
county to ask for help.
Gilmore has been missing now
for seven weeks and, according to
Little, those who want to find her
don't want to leave any stone
unturned. "Right now we need to
get the word out and keep it in
people's minds," Little said.
Volunteers are needed to
distribute flyers, raise money for
the family's expenses and to help
with the ground search when the
time comes.
Little said the search has spread



Juveniles

Continued from Page 1
of the orange jumpsuits juveniles
confined to the Department of
Juvenile Justice are required to
wear. Another students showed
others how he would walk in the
handcuffs and shackles. "I don't
know if he was serious or trying to
make the other students laugh,"
Williams said.
Not all students reacted like
James. Rachon, a fifth grader and
tall for his age, was sobered by the
events. Dressed in orange jumpsuits
and black sneakers, almost a dozen
juveniles wearing handcuffs and
shackles were ushered in the
courtroom by two guards and
ordered to sit in the jury box.
Two of the young men who took a
seat in the front row lived in
Rachon's neighborhood. Another
was his cousin. Their demeanor was
nothing like he remembers them
when they were at home. "They
don't look so bad anymore. They
look sacred and sad.,They were bad
when. they were in the
neighborhood," he said.
"I looked at my cousin. He used to
be fighting and stealing and selling
drugs, now he's wearing handcuffs.
I don't want to be like that. I want to
play football in college," he said,
admitting that he has had his share
of referrals to the school principal.
The 12-year-old said it was his
first time in a courtroom and that he
didn't know what to expect. He
rated the field trip as "kinda bad,
maybe an 8 out of 10. But they
wanted us to learn that if we do
certain things we could end up here,
for real."
The morning was hard on
teachers, too. "I wanted to cry when
the nine-year-old was supposed to
appear," Jones said. "In the
classroom, we're doing a unit on
citizenship. I felt this would help
them understand the court system a
little better when we get into that


outside Leon County because a
wider scope is needed. "We've
not saying that she's in Gadsden
County, but someone here may
have seen her or knows
something. We want to explore
every avenue. We want everyone
to be on the lookout," she said.
Gilmore, who was four months
pregnant when she went missing,
was last seen in Leon County.
She was a Department of Health
employee. She also worked at
Publix. During the past weeks
thousands of flyers have been
handed out in Leon County. In
Gadsden County flyers have been
posted in stores and distributed in
churches and at events that draw
large numbers of people.
"Anything that anyone could do
in Gadsden County would be
appreciated," Little said.



section." she said.
During a recess the assistant state
attorney and the public defender
took the opportunity to talk to the
students and explain legal
terminology. "One of things that
really grabbed their attention was
when the attorney explained that if
they were adults some of the
juveniles would be looking at 15
years or more in prison," said
Patricia Harris, guidance counselor.
Jones said a couple of her students
said they wanted to become lawyers
after listening to the attorneys.
Frank, a fourth grader, was one of
the students who saw law as a
possible career. "I learned one thing.
If you go to jail your reputation will
be gone," he said.
The students had heard about DJJ
and the detention center in
Tallahassee. "A lot of them know
kids who have been there, but what
they thought was, that it was some
kind of camp," Harris said, adding,
"hopefully they know better now."
Before Thursday, Williams had
only been in the county courthouse
once and that was for jury duty
about 20 years ago. Never had he
been to juvenile court. He was
surprised and saddened when he
looked up and saw two of the
students who only a few years sat in
his class. 'The first thing I asked
myself was could I have done more?
Could I have said something so that
they wouldn't be here?" he said.
"My objective was to show them
real life. If it frightened, scared or
intimidated them, I wanted them to
get the message that it's all about
making the right choices. The
choices they make today, even at
their ages, will affect them
tomorrow and in the future," he
said.
When they anived back at school
a student had a question for
Williams. "Why," he asked "did
they all have their heads down and
talk so low when it was their turn to
stand before the judge?"
"They were embarrassed," I said.


Continued from Page 1
totally and also fund them."
Dixon, however, said the memo
was misleading and asked for
permission to meet with the
mayors of both cities and the
county staff to come up with a
plan that would allow the cities to
get the paving help they need and
pay the county back on an agreed
upon schedule.
"Allow me to sit with the
mayors and staff to see if there is
a way for us to work together. I
don't want to tell the cities 'no'
on the face of it," Dixon said.
"We should tell them no. We
should not be taking money from
designated and planned-for
county roads and spend it on city
roads. Greensboro just got
$600,000, why do they need
help? If we get away from our
road paving list, we will be in
violation of our comp plan," said
Commissioner Sterling Watson.
Commissioner Eugene Lamb
said he was disappointed to see a
memo that contained misleading
information but could not vote to
approve spending money on city
roads until all of the county's dirt
roads had been paved. "I feel we
should concentrate on county
roads," he said.
His sentiments were echoed by
Commissioner Derrick Price. He
was approving of Dixon meeting
with the mayors and staff,
provided none of the work on
county roads stopped.
In the face of opposition, Dixon
withdrew his offer to meet with
mayors and staff to work out a
solution. He said paving and
resurfacing the roads should be
viewed as a financial tool.
Presnell said it costs about
$105,000 to pave a mile of road.
"At that rate, it will be 25 years
before Gretna gets its roads
paved and about 30 for
Greensboro," Dixon said.
County residents like Aleta
King weren't impressed.
Although she said she feels for
Gretna and Greensboro, the fact
remains that she has, waited too
long to have her road paved.
"I have no problem assisting
other areas, but I have been
waiting 35 years," King said. She
said she has been patient over the
years and has waited as elected
officials and county staff
changed. She asked
commissioners to stick to the
current road paving plan.
On the other side of the coin,
Gretna mayor Helen Franks
asked commissioners what they


had done for Gretna lately. "We
really need help. Help us now,"
she said.
In other matters, commissioners
approved a request by the school
board for conceptual approval of
a preliminary site plan for the
new West Gadsden High School.
The request was continued from
the March 7 meeting after the
safety of children crossing State
Road 12 was questioned.
Sam Hawkins suggested a
catwalk over the road would
rectify the problem.
"We have crossing guards at
every school and flashing caution
lights, that should be sufficient.
We looked at safety and we
didn't see any major stopping
point," said Reginald James,
school superintendent.
Commissioner Brenda Holt said
if there are fights students would
be crossing the road to help their
brothers and sisters. To construct
a catwalk is estimated to cost
between $600,000 and $1.3
million. The, money, school
officials said, is not in the budget.
Holt suggested that AJAX
Construction, the company that
will build the school, construct
the catwalk at no cost to the
citizens as a way of giving back
to the community. "They stand to
make money. I see other
companies re-investing in
communities in other places
where they have made money,"
she said.
Watson said he didn't see a
need for a catwalk. "I think there
are more dangerous areas.
Highway 90 where kids cross to
go to Shanks is probably more
dangerous," he said.
The new high school will be
located across the street from the
present high school, which will
become the elementary school.
The BoCC approved the request
unanimously, but not before
Dixon expressed his
disappointment with the school
board not working cooperatively
to look at other ways the school
could be used to the advantage of
the entire community.
The board also heard from Big
Bend Hospice regarding the
services they offer to the
community. Sterling Du Pont,
speaking for the organization,
asked commissioners to help
spread the word because people
are suffering who could be
helped.

building to notify WGHS staff
that they were threatened with the
handgun," the report stated.
Both of the teachers said they
saw Davis, who was driving a
white Nissan Maxima, with a
silver and black handgun in her
hand. One described the gun as
"hanging out the car window"
and the other described Davis as
"waving a gun." Both reported a
continuing verbal altercation
between two girls and Davis'
daughters, "while the suspect was
brandishing the handgun."
Before Chief Scholer arrived,
Davis left the school campus
headed east in the direction of
Quincy. She was stopped by a


Quincy police officer who
located the gun in the glove
compartment and the bullets in
the trunk.
Scholer test-fired the gun later
in the day using two rounds from
the box of 40 bullets recovered
from Davis' vehicle. "The
handgun successfully fired the
rounds in the manner in which it
was designed to fire," she wrote.
Davis was released after posting
a $10,000 bond, $5,000 on each
charge.

Banking on a grand




opening at Premier

When Premier Bank held it's grand opening lobby (immediately below).
Friday Gadsden County turned out in droves for Bank president Bruce Rowan, who can be seen in
food (above) and games (below). Tables were the background-far right- above, said the bank was
spread under tents on the lawn and in the bank's grateful to show off its new facility to so many.

that had slowed down the
completion of the audit. The term
refers to moving money from one
budget line to another budget line. An
example would be taking a $100 for
an expense of a part from the utility
department, and using it for a part for
the public works department. A
number of 'those transaction had
occurred, but were not completed.
Thompson said that in the past the
firm could help the city with that
particular problem (at a cost), but
new rules did not allow their
intervention
He did have one major concern.
The city, he said, was depending for
more that 50 percent of their
operating fund from the enterprises of
the city. Enterprises include the profit
from revenues generated by
electricity, water, gas and sewage.
Thompson said that other cities
took less that 50 percent and
depended on property taxes and state
revenue sharing to pay most bills.
"It is taking more enterprise money
every year to subsidize the general
fund."
Another problem he said was that
the city's available reserves were
low, at about $816,000 at the end of
September, 2003. One more albatross
hung around the city's neck,
Thompson said. The city was still
showing $859,374 in uncollectable
utility bills. The bills dated as far
back as 1980.
The city's financial woes rose with
the Stewart Street Bridge collapse
over Tanyard Creek in March, 2005.
There had been no additional
money budgeted in the 2004-2005
budget, for a new bridge, according to
Banks. The cost was estimated at the
time to be $350,000. The tight budget
left the chances of replacing the
bridge in jeopardy. Alternative ways
of funding for repairing the bridge
had to be found.
The bridge and paving is slated to
be finished the week of March 20,
2006 (this week). According to
Banks 90 percent of the funding was
provided by FEMA. The city also
received help (paid) from the county,
whose crews did the demolition of
the old bridge.
On May, 26, 2005 the first shoe hit
the floor.
Banks asked for a special meeting
concerning the city's delinquent
Progress Energy bill. The city
purchases electricity from Progress
Energy.
The city was in the hole $1,037,551
with Progress Energy with another
bill due in 'three or four days for
$464,306. Then city finance director
said she had paid the $464,306 bill
leaving .ii'., the '.l -i!Llin i balance.
Commissioners were caught off
guard" about the sudden financial
stumble.
"How can that happen,
commissioner Finley Cook asked


Banks at the time.
Banks responded that the city's
utility customers had been slow in
paying, throwing the city's coffers
behind. He said the problem had
started back in November of 2004
when the city experienced a high
number of cut-offs and delinquent
customers.
Banks and Reed presented a plan to
the commission to pull the city out of
the financial tail spin. The plan was
to draw the needed money from the
city's reserves, and use the Progress
Energy rebate check for $217,000
(which Progress Energy was still
holding) to pay the bill. The rebates
are calculated by Progress Energy
based a number of factors that
include fuel cost and the city's usage.
Reed said that she had been using
the rebate checks in the past as a float
for the city's checking account.
When customers were slow to pay,
she had the rebate money in the
account to cover any shortfall. The
wrench in the cogs .came when the
float (rebate check) however, was
used in 2004 by the commission to
purchase two city utility trucks.
In addition, Reed said that the city's
expenditures exceeded the city's
revenues. She said that in October the
city fell $300,000 short followed by
November with a $200,000 shortfall.
Because of the loss of the rebate
checks, Reed said she was unable to
replenish the Float fund.
Reed told the commissioners that
over the past seven months she has
needed to dip into the float money.
Once rebate checks stopped going
into the "float", finances tightened.
City attorney Jack McLean added
that the problem had actually started
in 2003 when Reed was instructed to
move money from the reserve. The
money had not been moved. When
asked if the city would be facing the
financial crunch if the money had
been moved, Reed said, no.
Cook made the motion that the
$217,000 rebate check be used to pay
on the Progress Energy bill. In
addition Reed was instructed to take
the $762,000 from the reserve which
had been previously approved and
apply it to the Progress Energy bill.
The additional $50,000 was to be
found by Banks in the city's coffers.
When asked if the city was solvent,
Reed said yes, but that the city had
been late paying its bills.
As the city's woes continued, it was
learned by commissioners that nearly
$172,000 in utility bills were owed
by three city customers.
The Gadsden Community Hospital
had racked up a $110,000 bill, with
Winn Dixie falling in at $50,000 and
Friedman's Jewelry owing $12,000.
All three sought protection under the
Federal Bankruptcy courts.
One of Quincy's enterprises,
NetQuincy the city's internet service
came under fire.
C,:.i Lnr i.r:.rei Finley Cook said the
enterprise was losing money. He
said that NetQuincy had lost
$183,000 in 2003 and by his
calculation was losing about $40,000
a month.


NetQuincy director John Thomas
defended the enterprise and said that
NetQuincy should be allowed to
recoup their losses. No motion was
made or has been made since,
concerning the fate of NetQuincy.
Mayor Sherrie Taylor, however,
has mentioned on several occasions
that she would like to look at either
merging the enterprise with another
internet provider or selling it outright.
In August Reed again warned the
commission that the city was falling
behind. She said there was not
enough money in the coffers to
operate the city for 60 days. An
added problem tripped the city again.
Progress Energy said it had
underbilled the city by $143,000. The
added charge pushed the bill to
$843,000.
The city would lose both Reed and
utility director Marvin Cox. Both
resigned as the fiscal year ended.
The second shoe hit the floor at the
end of September when Reed closed
out the city's books for the year.
Commissioners found out in October
that the city's shortfall had turned
into a real cash flow problem. Reed
had, according to McLean, paid all of
the city's bills at one time.
Paying the bills it seems had thrown
the city backwards to the tune of
$750,000.
The commissioners approved a 90
day loan with Capital City Bank to
cover their shortfall. The checks had
already been written.
That loan would be modified. The
city has since paid $200,000 on the
note and extended the remaining
$550,000 until September.
In November the city
commissioners started talking about
the possibility of a forensic audit.
The audit was the result of
comments made by McLean about
$262,000 of road paving money that
needed to be put back into the paving
bond.
The money had been assigned for a
project on Shelfer Street. The money
was not in the bond fund, where it
was supposed to be.
Bond money is to be carefully
monitored by the city and the
problem with the money created a
dilemma. The money has since been
replaced out of the city's coffers,
again creating a shortfall for the city.
What happened to the money and
why it was moved, which is still not
known, was the catalyst for the
forensic audit.
The firm of Thomas, Howell and
Ferguson P.A., from Tallahassee, was
hired by the commission for the
audit. The audit firm, the
commission decided, would answer
to city clerk Sylvia Hicks as a direct
line to the commissioners. It was
discussed earlier in the audit request
that the audit firm not fall under the
city manager's office but respond
directly to le coLmmifssi..ners
A', : ,:: I.:' i ,'l i E. .:hLS -.n':
preliminiir nlcirmanjion has been
requested by the audit firm. They
however have not been in-house for
the hands-on part of the audit. It is
expected to take 30 days to complete.

St. John and "Flat Stanley" learn about world!

First grade students in Ms. Mooney's class at St. John Elementary
began the "Flat Stanley Project" earlier this year. Each student sent a
letter along with a "Flat Stanley" to a relative or friend in another part
of the world. The students then received emails, letters, pictures, and
postcards from their Flat Stanley.
The students have learned about Illinois, Virginia, Nevada, New
Jersey, and even IRAQ!!! Flat Stanley went over to visit a soldier in
the war and returned with letters from soldiers, pictures, and even
some Iraqi money!
The students are currently working on getting a care package to send
over to our new pen pals. They are also excitedly awaiting the return
of their Flat Stanleys from wherever in the world they may have been
sent! This has been an exciting way to learn about life, cultures, and
geography.

The Gadsden County Times March 23, 2006 13


:,. 'i. 20th, 2006 is the official first day of spring this year. Spring is one of the four seasons that we experience here on Earth the others being surmc-r
winter, and autumn. The beginning of spring is marked by the vernal equinox. An equinox is the only day of the year in which both day and nighl are the ee.act length of
time. In the Northern Hemisphere we experience the vernal equirino on this day, and in the Southern Hemisphere they experience the first day of their fall season. This
occurrence is due to the fact that the sun is passing directly over the equator and it happens only twice a year.
,:( cultures in history have not only marked the vernal equinox as the start of spring, but as a time for celebration. The original Earth Day celebration was on the
vernal equinox, but is now observed in April 22nd. Easter also coincides with the vernal equinox, as it is celebrated during the first full moon after the equinox. If the
full moon falls on a Sunday it is celebrated that day. In Japan it is a national holiday. Many family gatherings and gravesite visitations are made on this day.
is also recognized for the new life it brings. When the cold winter weather dissipates the plant and animal life blooms, or "springs" forth, hence the name of
the season. The season is often portrayed by bright colors as new flowers are in full bloom. Many baby animals are born at this time. It is also known as a time when
people clean their homes and discard of clutter; a practice that is known as spring cleaning. J ,' a S

They learn how to manage money, shop and critical thinking.

children," Pennick said.
The students receive training over an eight week cycle, twice a week
l .i three hours after school and are paid a stipend. There will be a summer

district game while Munroe picked up three softball
wins and one loss in high school county softball
action. 'V
Wewahitchka, a long time softball power in the
state, crushed West Gadsden 22-3 in five innings last 'U
week. The Gators scored six runs in each of the o
third and fourth innings on their way to the win.
Munroe took two wins from district opponent John
Paul II winning 9-2 and 15-8. In the first win, .
Sallie Willis struck out seven and walked only one.
Malorie McKinnon and Melody Brown provided the ,
bats with each gathering two hits. Brown also hit a
triple.
In the second game, Melody Brown pitched her -
first game of the season and picked up a win. The
junior struck out nine. Sallie Willis was huge at the -
plate, going 4 for 4 with two homeruns and 6 rbi's. '
Crystal Wade and Julia Bates each had 3 hits, :
Malorie McKinnon added two hits including a home 0
run and 3 rbi's. Chelsey Smith also had a homerun.l
In a key district game against Aucilla the next
night proved the Lady Cats undoing. Aucilla outhit
the Munroe and won 7-4. Willis had a double with
two hits and Brown had one hit and one rbi. The
district loss dropped the team to 2-2 in Class A ,
District 3.
The Lady Cat team moved one game over the .500 t
mark with a come from behind win over Rickards on
Wednesday. The team played the game without the
services of five seniors and juniors who were away
on class trips. That left the Lady Cats to play with
sixth, seventh and ninth graders. The Lady Cats
found themselves down by two runs, 7-5, in the top
of the 7th with one out. With two runners in
scoring position, sophomore shortstop Crystal Wade ,
blasted a hit deep into the left field that was too hot
for the Rickards leftfielder to handle. The Lady
Cats tied up the score 7-7 on that hit and then
continued to score runs until their at bat ended with o
a 12-7 lead. Rickards scored one more run in the "
bottom of the 7th before pitcher, Malorie McKinnon,
struck out the last two batters to secure the win.
Munroe moved to 7-6 overall on the season.

conference room in the Gadsden
County Health Department, 278

The Family Food Fest will focus
on building a healthy family by
providing fun, nutrition and
educational activities such as,
storytime, taste testing, and physical
activity. The event will focus on
activities from the "Be Wise About
Your Portion Size" campaign
created by the Florida Food and
Nutrition Committee (FIFNC) in
2005. Ian effort to reduce the
incidence of obesity in Florida, the
Be Wise About Your Portion Size
nutrition education campaign
promotes healthy food choices,
appropriate portion sizes, and daily
meal planning. In addition to
registered dietitians, there will be an
International Board Certified
Lactation Consultant (IBCLC)

March, 2006. The event encourages
all Americans to take the first step
toward making good nutrition and
physical activity choices. Trying
new foods and new physical
activities can jump-start your plans
for health. Personalize the Food
Guide Pyramid as your roadmap
toward eating a variety of foods
using moderation when selecting
portion sizes and balancing your
choices over time. Taking the first
step toward making healthful
choices can be made easy if you
enlist help from friends and family.
Remember, the food and activity
choices made today and everyday
affect your health and how you feel
today and in the future. So call a
friend and start stepping! Contact

Midway


Continued from Page 1

agenda at the time of the
adjournment and were tabled
until the March meeting.
At the March 2 meeting the
ordinance was not voted
on.However, county commission
chairman Ed Dixon was present
to request that Midway adhere to
the county's large scale land use
change moratorium.
The county instigated a
moratorium in January to stop
any land use changes on property
over 20 acres until several issues
could be dealt with, primarily,
infrastructure.
He asked the city to not annex
any large scale property until the
county's moratorium was over at
the end of June. Although
PTLEA does not fit the exact
moratorium requirements, Dixon
asked that the PTLEA annexation
wait until the June deadline.
Dixon said septic tanks and
other infrastructure needs had
warranted the moratorium to
allow time to decide what types
of growth and where in the
county the growth would best be
served.
Tallahassee Community
College president Bill Law also
appeared before the council in
that meeting to add his support of
the annexation. Law stated he felt
the annexation could help
Midway. Law fielded a number
of questions from residents about
the intent and future of PTLEA.
He said there would be some
buildings added in the future and
that the academy, which trains
about 30 local and state law
enforcement agencies, will
continue to grow. He said there
was a master plan for the
academy that he would share
with the residents.
During the workshop Law and
Murdaugh restated their intent for
the request to be annexed into the
city. Law said the academy could
help with Midway's grant
programs. Murdaugh, when
asked about employment, said
that the academy has 32 staff
employed. He added that the
academy's financial benefit came
from those being trained at the
academy. Most of the training
programs are from five to seven
months and those people, he said,
spent money locally.
As a state agency the PTLEA
does not pay any property taxes
or building permit. fees. Law said
that the academy has the needed
infrastructure (water and central
sewage) and would not be a
burden on the city.
Law said that if the Midway did
not annex the academy into the
city, the help from the academy
would still be available. "We
want to be good citizens of the


county," Law said.
Although it was stated that the
two issues were not intertwined,
each time the moratorium
question was discussed the
annexation of PTLEA also
became an issue.
Dixon held fast to his request at
the workshop to hold off on any
annexation until the June
deadline. The annexation he said
would create a nexus of property.
He said the county needed to
encourage growth around its
municipalities. He had concerns
about subdivisions popping up in
isolated parts of the county away
from infrastructure such as
sewage and water.
The burden of growth on the
county's budget was an issue for
Dixon as well.
The sheriff, Dixon said, needed
30 new vehicles. "That's not new
population, that's this population.
We're tied together-like it or
not," Dixon said.
He added that plans were to
encourage annexation into the
cities as the infrastructure could
handle them. His concern
with Midway centered around the
fast-growing city's ability to
provide services. Infrastructure
he said was an important issue.
He said the county wrote the
grant for the sewage system that
now runs along US 90 in Midway
to West Gadsden High School
and the 10-90 Commerce Park
(not being used by residential
users at this time), and then
turned the system over to the
Talquin Electric "for Talquin to
make money."
"Annex whatyou can pay for,"
Dixon added.
"We are now looking at a great
number of homes," Dixon said
about the current growth in
Midway. "Are you going to be
able to provide services in the
near future," he continued.
Council member Ella Barber
agreed. She said the city needed
to step back, not stop.
One council member, James
Hinson, agreed that the city
needed to honor the moratorium,
but had concerns about stopping
the annexation of the PTLEA.
Hinson said after he read the
moratorium request, he did not,
see what the moratorium had to
do with PTLEA.
The moratorium lists large scale
land use that would result in
increasing the density of the
property, Hinson said, not a
annexation such as PTLEA.
County growth director Bill
McCord stated that the county
had not been aware of the
PTLEA annexation at the time of
the moratorium.
Dixon interjected that stopping
the annexation until the
moratorium was over would not
affect the final outcome of the
issue.
He said that he wanted all of the
cities and the county to have
"One Vision" concerning growth,


adding that he did not have a
problem with PTLEA or TCC.
"Please join us," Dixon said to
the council.
Dixon said he had contacted
Greensboro about the issue and
they agreed to the moratorium.
County manager Marion
Brown, said that Havana had also
agreed to the moratorium.
Council member Chuck Willis
wanted the city to step back and
take a look at where it is at. He
explained that. that only a few
years ago Midway was sitting on
the verge of financial disaster
with no tax base.
The city does not provide water,
electricity, or sewage as a source
of revenue. Those services
(sewage where available) are
provided by Talquin Electric.
In order to increase the city's
revenues Willis said, Midway
started annexing in property to
increase the city's tax base. "We
are here today setting up a
dialogue," Willis said, to make
Midway a better city. Willis has
been an advocate on the council
for police protection and road
paving.
The city now uses the Gadsden
County Sheriff's department as
its police force, at a cost to the
city of about $100,000 for two
deputies. Midway recently
received a CDBG road grant and
paved several streets in the city.
Willis said the city had come a
long way, adding that it was not
just the mayor, but the council
and the citizens that had moved
the city forward. "We can't do it
by ourselves," Willis said.
Commissioners Brenda Holt,
Eugene Lamb and Sterling
Watson were on hand at the
workshop.
Holt was the only other
commissioner to speak saying
that Midway should wait along
with the county on the
moratorium before annexing any
more property into the city. Now
is the time she said to look at the
problems. "We will not get an
opportunity to come back and fix
it," Holt said.
John Yerkes, a resident of Lake
Yvette (not in the city limits of
Midway) and a member of the
Gadsden county planning and
zoning board, said that the
annexation of PTLEA would
have no affect on Midway other
than allow other property to be
annexed into the city. The
annexing process requires that
before a piece of property can be
annexed into the city it must
adjoin a piece of property that is
already in the city.
Yerkes "asked Law to rescind
his annexation request.
Law did not rescind his request,
however, he did say that if
Midway agreed to the
moratorium he would hold his
request.
After the meeting, city attorney
John Williams was asked if any
of the property on the north side


of 1-10 adjacent to the city limits
on the south side (like PTLEA)
could annex into the city.
Williams said yes.
The annexing of the property
between the PTLEA and the
'current Midway city limits has
been an issue at the last two
meetings among residents. It has
been stated that if PTLEA was
annexed into the city it would
start the annexing of the property
east.
According to Williams the
property that is adjacent to
Midway's city limits on the north
side (Hammock Creek Business
Park and several hundred acres of
undeveloped property along 1-10)
can still be annexed with or
without the PTLEA annexation.
Sam Hawkins, a county
resident, had concerns about the
added number of septic tanks in
the new subdivisions in Midway.
None of the new subdivisions
currently under construction in
Midway has a central sewage
system. The area's aquifer and
Midway's location between two
of the county's rivers were also a
concern he said.
One developer, Ryan Rowe,
said he agreed with responsible
building. He said he had no
problem with developers
providing services to the city. He
said he was willing to help with
some of the poorer areas in
Midway by building lower cost
housing.
Rowe said that one of the
reasons that people were moving


to Midway was because of the
lower cost of housing. He
said that people could not afford
to buy property at one house per
ten acres.
The workshop ended with only
a consensus from the council to
join the county's moratorium.
No votes can be taken at a
workshop.
The annexation of PTLEA,
however, is still up in the air until
the council votes on the
moratorium in its April meeting.

24 Gadsden County Times March 23, 2006


Dear Gadsden., Liberty & Calhoun '
County Residents,
Three years ago I obtained my Florida
Dealer's License due to the frustration of
shopping for a used car. The following
three things made car shopping a big
headache for me:
*Haggling for the best price
*Having to pp; e.up with $2000 to
$00~0of6r a down payment, takes, title and


tag
*Paying someone a $5000 $6000 profit
on a $10,000 automobile.
Here's what we've done at Direct
Automotive Wholesale:
*All vehicles are priced at the "Loan
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.HIGGH PRESSURE SALES PEOPLE.
If you don't see the car of your dreams in
this ad, call us. We'll get you pre-approved,
tell you what it will cost and buy it for you.
We appreciate your supporting us. Come
by or call.
