Quincy CRA

OKs project

by BYRON SPIRES
Times Staff Writer
The Quincy commission, acting
in its roll as the CRA board,
reversed a decision made at last
month's meeting and approved a
beautification project in west
Quincy.
The project in Commissioner
Keith Dowdell's district has a
$15,000 price tag. The money
will be used to place monuments
throughout the district
commemorating several of the
older parts of town like Lick
Skillet.
Last month the board cast a two
- two vote, which caused the
motion to fail. A tie vote
constitutes a no vote for any
measure.
The American Legion
Women's auxiliary had agreed to
keep the monuments up and
several local residents had agreed
to help with the implementation
of the monuments.
In other business:
* The board approved the
purchase of six pieces of property
along Tanyard Creek. Tanyard
Creek is scheduled to become a
walking park.
* CRA director Marsha Harpool
told the board that two homes
had been repaired with CRA
money through the city's rehab
program. The balance in the
rehab fund is $4,518.

Netquincy's fate was the topic of a
workshop held by Quincy commissioners
Monday night.
Commissioners took a "wait and see"
attitude after the two hour workshop


floundered on any concrete decision about
the exact fate of Quincy's newest
enterprise.
Mayor Sherrie Taylor's recommendation
was that the commission visit the issue in
another workshop at a later date. The
workshop time, she said, would be decided
in the second May meeting.
John Thomas, Netquincy's director, was
asked' to give the commissioners
projections as to when the internet service
would be in a break-even position and
when they could expect the enterprise to
start producing an income for the city,
before the next workshop.
During the workshop Thomas gave the

commissioners an overview of the history
of Netquincy.
This is a short synopsis of Thomas'
presentation:
* An idea to provide internet service to
Quincy residents in 2000 was funded with
$125,000.
* The first public customers came online
for the dial-up service in 2001.
* In 2002 the commission approved a
feasibility study for broadband services
beingadded to Netquincy.
* Netquincy started its program of
packaging computers and internet service
to Quincy customers with the customer
base reaching 1143 in January of 2003.

Shouting "we are together, we will never give
up" in Spanish, over 3,000 protesters descended
on the Courthouse Square Monday afternoon to
show their displeasure with HR 4437. The bill,
currently in Congress, would crack down on
illegal immigrants and in some cases make it a
felony to hire a person who is known to be an
illegal immigrant.
They carried signs proclaiming that "immigrants
are not criminals" simply because they want to
work in the United States. Evelia Memjivas, who
helped organize the rally, said most of the
protesters were from Gadsden County and worked
in agriculture. "This rally is for immigrants, we're
not criminals. We work and we pay taxes. We're


* In August of 2003 the city commission
approved a telecommunications bond and
construction of the fiber plant.
* By October of 2003 Netquincy is no
longer listed under the general services,
but becomes an enterprise fund like the
electric, water and sewage departments.
* July of 2004 the fiber optic network for
Quincy begins construction.
* January of 2005 the network goes live
with paying customers with the county and
supervisor of elections becoming
customers.
Thomas defended the internet service
saying that the enterprise had only been at

standing with one voice all over the United States.
This is one of the most shameful pieces of
legislation in American history," she said.
The rally is one of many being held in cities and
towns across America.
The marchers are demanding reforms on the
nation's immigration laws. They got support, too,
from local officials including county
commissioner Brenda Holt. "If they go back, we
all go back. The Indians are the only ones who can
stay. We can start with the Europeans if we want
to start sending people back where they came
from," she told the cheering crowd.
Quincy's Mayor Sherrie Taylor spoke in Spanish
when she told the protesters that they have a right
to be in the United States. "It's all for one and one
for all. We love you and we will support you," she

Staff: Thomas should get legal opinion when refusing to pay


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

What is an allowable expense and what
isr't may have to be decided in court.
The county's Office of Management and
Budget director Davin Suggs told the
board of county commissioners, during a
workshop, that he wanted a policy that
would direct Clerk of the Courts Nicholas
Thomas to refer to a legal opinion when he
refuses to pay a BoCC expense.


"It's staff opinion vs. an elected official's
opinion," Suggs told the board. He'said
that Thomas refused to pay for a lunch
served the board during a retreat last
month without explanation, other than "it
is not an allowable expense". He said he
would like legal documentation in writing
for any refusal.
Suggs said he fears Thomas will refuse
to pay for t-shirts for this weekend's bass
tournament. Suggs views the shirts as a
promotional item, an expense that is
allowable.


"Can you ask before you act?" said
Commissioner Eugene Lamb, referring to
Suggs consulting the Clerk if he feels
payment for an item might be in question.
Ed Dixon, commission chairman,
suggested that Suggs go through the
process of submitting the bill and turning
the matter over to Thornton Williams,
county attorney for further action.
Suggs presented recommended policies
under the county's comprehensive
financial management policy. He feels
these address a laundry list of items to


make the county operate in a more
cohesive manner. In policy 3.04 Suggs
says that it is the goal of the staff and
board to expend resources for purposes
which are explicitly authorized or deemed
appropriate by federal, state, and local
laws.
"The policy you're putting in place
seems to make it clear (that you are not
expending funds illegally)" said Dixon.
The financial part of the two-hour
workshop, Suggs said, was intended to do

Mayor critical of Banks, but no vote taken


by BYRON SPIRES,
Times Staff Writer
Quincy city manager Willie Earl Banks
again found himself on the hot seat.
i Mayor Sherrie Taylor said that she had
given Banks three months to make
changes in the city and Tuesday night
was the end of the three months.


Those changes had not happened she
said.
"My district demanded that I give the
city manager until April," Taylor said.
Taylor named issues in the police
department, code enforcement and
human resources as problem areas she
felt had not been dealt with properly.
The city's finances were an issue as


well, Taylor said. She added that Banks
had brought two different cash issue
before the commission during the three
months.
Taylor said if commissioner Derrick
Elias' election was not coming up (April
25) she would ask for the manager's
resignation.
"We are going to have to do something


here," Taylor said.
Commissioner Andy Gay was the only
commissioner to speak to Taylor's
comments and asked city attorney Jack
McLean about Banks' contract.
No decision was made earlier in the
year about his contract when Banks was
retained as city manager. The contract
was at that time being negotiated, but has


not been back before the commission.
McLean said Banks still has his
original contract with the same six
month severance pay provision.
He added that he would have the
details at the commissioners next
meeting.
No decision was made concerning

'This is


a typical


night...'


for EM5

by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

At 8:45 p.m. on a recent Friday
night, a young mother dialed 911.
Her 16-month-old baby had an
elevated temperature. The baby,
she said, has had a temperature
for the past two days, but now
she thinks the child needs to go to
the emergency room. Two
paramedics hop into a waiting
ambulance and head for the
address.
Almost as soon as that
ambulance leaves another call
comes in: a 46-year-old man has
fallen in the yard. The night is
cold and family members think
he may have had a heart attack.
Two more paramedics are
dispatched to that address.
At 8:50 p.m., 911 gets the call
that a woman in rural Gadsden
County, about 15 miles from the
EMS office, has gone into labor.
The access to the woman's home
is good until about an eight of a
mile from the front door. The
road is like a wash board.
That's three of the county's four
ambulances on calls. The
supervisor, Phillip Hill, decides
to call in a unit from
Chattahoochee to cover the
office-just in case. The two
paramedics and the ambulance
assigned to the Chattahoochee
area are now in Quincy.
At 9:14 p.m. another call comes
in that a woman is having a baby
at the Flying J. "It's funny how
things work, just this morning we
got a call that a man had been
found dead in his home. Tonight,
it seems like two more will be
coming into the world," Hill said.
But the news is not good when
paramedics arrived at the Flying
J, the woman is only in her third
month and she could be

threatening a miscarriage. Her
fiance waited outside while
paramedics do their work.
Occasionally he tried to peek
inside to see what's going on.
"This was going to be our first,"
he said. Inside his fiance is crying
and her blood pressure is too
high. As paramedics need to
stabilize the woman, she begins
to cry. "I'm going with her (to the
hospital)" her fiance told the
paramedics. They see his distress
and allow him to accompany
them.
"This is a typical night." Hill
said. By 10 p.m., three
ambulances and six paramedics
were at Tallahassee Memorial
Hospital waiting for patients to
get care so they can come back to
Gadsden County. The typical turn
around time, if nothing unusual
happens and patients can get in
right away, is 90 minutes. More
often than not on a busy day or
night, it could take longer.
"I have had to call hospitals and
ask them to take the patients so
the paramedics and ambulances
can return. That hasn't happened
too often because they know that
we don't have a hospital anymore
and they try to help," Hill said.
Because whether it's a hangnail
or a heart attack, paramedics are
required to answer the call and if
the person wants to be
transported "we have to take
them," Hill said.
There are people who are under
the misconception that if they
arrive by ambulance, they will be
treated quickly once they reach
the hospital. "That's not true. If it
is not life-threatening, they will
sit in the waiting room like
everybody else," he said.
In two of the cases where
ambulances transported patients
to Tallahassee, had the

'They did a good job and saved my life'


Superbowl Sunday indigestion
turns out to be much more;
Hartsfield grateful to EMTs
by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
It was Super Bowl Sunday and that night
William Hartsfield, 52, thought he was
suffering from "a little indigestion".
He took the usual over the counter remedies,
but they. didn't work. As the evening
progressed the pain in his chest grew worse.
"It hurt if I stood up or sat down or laid down,
I felt like someone was sticking a knife in me
and I couldn't stop sweating," he said.
"I told my fiance to call 911," he said.
It took six minutes for the county's
Emergency Medical Service to arrive at the
Hartsfield home in the St. Hebron
Community. As soon as the emergency
medical technicians arrived they began
working on Hartsfield.
"I remember them hooking me up and
talking to people at the hospital. They told me
that I had some sort of blockage," Hartsfield


said.
The following Wednesday, Hartsfield
walked out of Capital Regional Medical
Center. He thanks the Gadsden EMS for their
quick response and credits them with saving
his life.
"The service was good, they did a good job
and they saved my life," said Hartsfield of the
local EMTs. Several weeks after Hartsfield's
ordeal, Barry Hamp, cardiac product line
administrator visited the local office to
congratulate them on a good job. To show his
appreciation Hamp brought donuts and coffee.
"I just wanted to say thank you," he said. He
also shared with them what to expect when
they bring a patient to Capital Regional. "We
want you to know that we have quick
response," Hamp said.
The certified chest pain center has accepted
some of the 1800 Gadsden County people
who have been transported to other hospitals
since the Nov. 5 closing of Gadsden
Community Hospital. Hartsfield was taken to
Capital Regional.
EMT Chip Brock said without quick
response, Hartsfield's outcome might have
been different. "Basically the man was having


a massive heart attack," he said.
From the time they got Hartsfield to the
hospital to the time the lab had identified
where the clot was took about two minutes,"
he said.
"Our job is to provide the best level of
treatment we can until we can get the person
to the emergency room and I feel that is what
we did in this case," Brock said.
"We called the hospital initially and that got
the ball rolling. It's standard procedure for
what we do," Brock said. Hospitals are now
emphasizing what they call the "Golden
Hour" for heart attack and stroke patients.
That is the most critical time and can mean
the difference between life and death.
"We want to cut that time to less -than 60
minutes. If a person has any of the signs and
symptoms of a heart attack or stroke, they
need to call us right away, don't wait that's
why we're here." Brock said.
With the hospital closed and an urgent care
facility not here yet, the EMS is the first line
of defense. "Our feeling is that if a person
thinks it's an emergency, then it is an
emergency," Brock said.

Lt. Gen. Lawrence F. Snowden, U.S. Marine Corps (retired), speaks to a crowd
of over 500 as he stands in front of the center piece of "The Price of
FreedomVeterans Memorial" in Havana. Snowden was the keynote speaker at
Saturday's dedication ceremony held at the Havana Community Park. Above left

The Midway council said no last
week to Pat Thomas Law
Enforcement Academy's request to
annex into the city.
The controversial issue has been
bouncing around council meetings
for the past three months and even
generated a special workshop with
the Gadsden County Board of
Commissioners last month.
PTLEA is part of the Tallahassee
Community College umbrella of
academic services offered to North
Florida residents. Dr. Bill Law,
president of TCC has pleaded the
case before the council several
times for annexing the academy
into the confines of the City of
Midway.
Both Law and PTLEA director
Jim Murdaugh, a TCC vice
president, have stated that their
primary reason for requesting the
annexation was the address change
of the academy. The TCC Board of
Trustees approved the request to
annexation.
Currently the address is listed as
an Havana location, a problem with
incoming recruits, the pair have
said. The annexation would change
the academy's address to. a
Midway address.
Over the period of the requested
annexation the tiny Midway City
Hall has been packed with
residents, many who objected to
the proposed annexation.
In order to annex the property
into the city the property must
adjoin other city property. The
annexation of the land across
Interstate 10 which stretches to
Little River along Highway 268
(Highbridge Road) two years ago
set the stage for the possible
annexation.
Those who opposed the measure
said jumping the interstate to the
PTLEA would open the door for
other annexations. They were
referring to land between PTLEA
and the current Midway city limits.


Several residents from Lake
Yvette, a county subdivision on the
north side of US 90, were also
present at the meetings and
opposed the annexation.
. County commission chairman Ed
Dixon appeared before the Midway
council in March and requested
that the city of Midway support a
county moratorium on large land
use changes ( 20 acres or more).
A workshop with county
commissioners was set up in mid-,
March and held in the city's fire,
department conference room. In.
that meeting a consensus was taken
and the council agreed to support
the moratorium. The council,
however, did not publicly state they
were not going through with the
annexation.
A second reading of the
ordinance to annex in the 1264 acre
PTLEA was listed on the April
agenda. A debate as to whether,
the moratorium .included PTLEA
lasted about an hour before the,
council took a vote on the
annexation.
Resident Jerry Walker warned the.
council that he had an appointment
with the attorney general. "I'm
gonna makes some waves,",
Walker said.
Council member Charles Willis
said he wanted the citizens of
Midway to continue to keep,
control of the city, and suggested,
investigating possible ordinances to,
insure control stayed in the hands,
of current residents.
Council member James Hinson
made the motion to approve the'
ordinance. The measure,
was voted down with council
members Mae Cato, Charles,
Willis, Ella .Barber and Louis
Parker voting against the measure.
Council members James Hinson,
Patrick Johnson and Mayori
Delores Madison voted for the.
annexation.
When asked if the annexation
request would come back at a later
date, Murdaugh said that he could-
not say at that point.


I am proud of the progress that students and staff are
making in our schools. Nlany positive changes have been
made during this administration, and I am pleased with
the impact these changes are having on our schools. One
of the most recent changes in our school system has been
the implementation of a zero tolerance for aggressive behavior. My discipline policies
come from my firm belief that all of the children in our school system have enormous
potential to be successful adults if we can instill in them positive values while they are
still in school.

Disciplinary incidents on our school campuses have declined from last year by more
than 19%. Much of this can be attributed to the school uniform policy that was put
into place at all elementary and middle schools. I have compared the discipline referral
data from August to March of last year with this year's data. ALL SCHOOLS that had
a uniform policy showed a drop in referrals, some dramatically. St. John Elementary
had a 77% drop; Chattahoochee Elementary had a 38% drop; Greensboro Elementary
had a 35% drop. It is towards this end that I would like the community to seriously
consider school uniforms for our high schools.

The announcement of our zero tolerance policy for aggressive behavior has already
made a positive impact on discipline referrals in our high schools. Pairing the uniform
policy with the fight intervention program will ensure safe schools and optimal learn-
ing environments. Having school uniforms in the high schools will have many positive
impacts. One is the obvious effects on good behavior. Another is an additional step
toward fulfilling our mission: to build a brighter future by preparing children for suc-
cess in life. I encourage you to consider uniforms for our high schools. Uniforms are
attractive, inexpensive and effective. If children are dressed for success, they are much
more apt to concentrate on what is important in life: their studies and training for their
future. I am determined to do all that I can do as Superintendent to help our children
achieve success.

All parents of rising and current high school students have been sent a survey regarding
their desires for uniforms in our high schools. Please respond in a timely manner so
that we can plan appropriately for the next school year. Every decision of this magni-
tude requires the input of our parents and community.

Thank you for your outstanding support of our students and schools.

Sincerely,
Reginald C. James
Superintendent of Schools

Looking forward to Easter


Ujinding Roads

BRemem: Broing C Spires handler's




Remembering Chandler's


Other than Christmas, Easter is my most
favorite holiday. Everything is so fresh and so
clean. Even the trees and flowers seem to be
celebrating. This is the time of year when New
Year's really ought to be observed instead of
January 1.
Growing up, in our house Easter meant
church. First and foremost, everybody in the
house went to church Easter Sunday. There
were no ifs, ands, or buts about it. All of my
brothers had fresh haircuts and new suits. Me
and Mama had straightened and curled hair
and had on new dresses, hats and white gloves.
You see, it was improper for little girls to
wear any color gloves other than white. Mama
stopped buying me Easter baskets after I
turned 12. But to me, all was right with the
world on Easter.
Fresh-faced and ready, we walked the short
distance from our house on High Bridge Road
to Old Bethel A.M.E. Church. Mama and
Daddy in the front and the rest of us bringing
up the rear, like ducks in a row. Mama had to
continually tell my brother, Carl, to keep up.
He really didn't like church that much
because of the blind man. The man never used
anything to cover his eyes and Carl always
said his eyes looked like the inside of a
banana. I couldn't figure out why he kept
looking at the man's eyes, I didn't. To this day,
Carl will not eat a banana.
But to move on.
Weeks before Easter we, like all of the other
children in the church and in the community (if
they wanted one) were given Easter speeches.
Little kids got speeches and the older kids got
to be in the Easter Play. If you could say a long
speech, everybody thought you were smart. I
always wanted a long speech. Some of us
doubled over laughing when a teenager
(usually a boy) got up and recited a four-line
speech.
"Don't laugh," our Sunday School
Superintendent, Alpha Williams, would say,
adding, "he's doing the best he can and that's
all that is required of us in the Lord's sight."
That, to us, made it even funnier because how
could someone almost ready to become an
adult barely manage to learn four lines after


Job well done

Dear Editor:


On Saturday, April 8, 2006 I
had the privilege of attending
the Veterans Memorial
Dedication in Havana, Florida.
Not only was this event
superbly well organized and
well attended, but it also
exhibited the type of
"Community" that we all, would
like to strive for. What better
way to bring a community
together than to recognize the
many men and women, past and
present, who have sacrificed so
much to preserve our way of
life in each of our communities.
This event meant a great deal to
me since my brother and I were
in the service. I have many
close friends that served, and
some who died, in Vietnam.
Havana went Above and
Beyond in honoring these brave
members of our community and
is to be congratulated for its
efforts and the spirit of
Community it brought to all its
citizens through this moving
event. So many times we tend
to dwell on the insignificant and
divisive issues in our
communities that diminish what
it truly means to be an
American. Brotherhood,
standing up for what is right,
unselfishness and self-sacrifice
are only a few of the tenets of
what all Americans should
aspire to in our everyday lives
as these individuals that we
honored on Saturday have
demonstrated so well.
Unfortunately, this does not
always occur, but an event such
as the Havana Memorial
Dedication, hopefully provided
that reminder to all of us that
there are men and women that
have been an example to us all
on what it means to be an
American and not take for
granted the many freedoms and


two weeks of practice?
The minister delivered the same message
every Easter. Starting with the mean soldiers
beating Jesus and making him carry that heav:
cross, to the crucifixion, and the rolling of the
stone away to find an empty grave. That's my
favorite sermon, too.
We could count on at least two women
"getting happy" as we called it, when the
minister came to the part about the empty
grave. Actually, they were so overcome-in the
spirit that they lost control and would jump
around, shake uncontrollably, and scream the
name of Jesus over and over until one or two
of the ushers, depending on how strong the
spirit or how strong the woman, would go ove
and calm them down by fanning them and
saying soothing words. Men hardly ever
became overcome like the women.
During the Easter Program, the men went
outside to hide eggs. Then, we'd all spill out o
the church in a great rush to search for the
brightly colored eggs. The people with the
most children always boiled and colored the
most eggs. Mama usually took three dozen. I
could be counted on the find about two eggs.
Some kids could find a dozen eggs easy, but I
didn't worry about finding eggs because Mam
and Daddy always made my brothers share
their eggs and we had an extra dozen at home
Besides, I didn't want to mess up my new
shoes and gloves hunting for something I was
going to get anyway.
Every Easter we had the same meal: ham
garnished with pineapple and cherries, string
beans, potato salad, rolls, green Jell-o with
fruit cocktail in it and sweet tea. That's what
I'm cooking Sunday, too. We ate eggs until w
couldn't hold anymore or until Mama got
scared for our health or maybe she and Daddy
didn't want to smell the distinctive aroma she
knew would waft through the house later that
night.
I'm looking forward to Easter. I don't have a
new dress, or hat, or gloves and I certainly
don't have a speech. But I most certainly will
enjoy watching others.


values they have been bestowed
upon us as a community and a
nation. We need to continue to
capitalize on their sacrifices by
working together to strengthen
our communities in honor of
these brave men and women's
sacrifices in insuring these
rights and privileges for us, and
our children's future.
Again, my hat is off to
Havana for such a wonderful
and meaningful dedication for
all our service men and women
in uniform.
CONGRATULATIONS and
THANK YOU

hat Community colleges face

ore budget cuts in legislature


Florida TaxWatch
released a study supporting
a push for the Senate to
reconsider its stance on
Gov. Jeb Bush's $84 million
budget request for
the state's 28 community
colleges. House leadership
backs Bush's
recommendation, while the
Senate falls $40 million
short of the Governor's
recommendation.
In the Senate budget, four
community colleges would
receive 1.4 percent to 1.9
percent increases, and
another 10 would receive
between 2 and 2.5 percent'.
"These levels are
woefully inadequate to pay
soaring utility, insurance
and other costs, leaving
nothing to provide even
minimal salary increases for
faculty and staff," said Dr.
Charles Mojock, President
of Lake Sumter Community
College and incoming chair
of the Community College
Council of Presidents. "The
Governor and House would
raise all colleges by at least
3 percent, still a very
modest amount in this year


of considerable new
revenues."
Florida ranks next to last
in state funding per student
among the 16-state Southern
Region, said Mojock but
the
TaxWatch study shows that
community colleges provide
a "solid return on
investment" by increasing
students' long-term
prosperity and, ultimately,
the state's economy.
"We need to invest in our
colleges to allow them to
build capacity so that future
students have access to the
opportunities for acquiring
the skills and knowledge
they need to contribute to
the growth of Florida's
economy," said Rep. Joe
Pickens, R-Palatka and
chair of the House

full force since January of 2005 and
needed time to prove that it could be a
viable income producer for the city.
In the original presentation back in late
2000, it was understood that it would take
Netquincy some time to become profitable,
Thomas said, a fact that Commissioner
Derrick Elias agreed with. Elias and
Commissioner Keith Dowdell were on the
commission at the time of the inception of
Netquincy.
Elias said that the commission knew at
that time the new idea would be a "bumpy
road", and knew there would be losses
along the way.
Commissioner Finley Cook said that as
the city faced a financial crisis, his
concerns were centered around what it was
costing the city to keep Netquincy
operating.
City attorney Jack McLean told the
commissioners that Netquincy had lost
$60,000 in 2005 and $150,000 in 2004.'
No profits or losses were given for the
three preceding years.
In addition the customer base has dropped
to about 880 customers according to
Thomas.
Cook said he did not feel comfortable
with those numbers and thought the
amount was much larger.
Mayor Taylor had similar thoughts and
stated that she did not feel that Netquincy
was not funding'itself at this time.
She added that she did not see the
enterprise turning itself around.
Commissioner Andy Gay had concerns
about using taxpayers money to fund
Netquincy. Gay said that it was hard
to support and that taxpayers were the
investors and the enterprise is not making
any money.
But, he added that he would keep an open
mind about what could be done with
Netquincy.
Thomas did say that he was working on
building back Netquincy's customer base.
Two new apartment complexes are coming

said. Her sentiments were echoed by Leon
County Commissioner Bob Rackleff, who
attended the rally.
The protesters waved the American and
Mexican flags and carried signs. Passersby
honked car horns in support. "There is a lot of
support for these people and their cause. They
work and provide service. They do the jobs
that many Americans don't want to do," said
Sam Hawkins, president of the local chapter
of the National Association for the
Advancement of Colored People (NAACP).
The current legislation under consideration
would help people already in this county
become legal and make it a felony to remain
here illegally.
That poses a dilemma for parents who might
be illegal but whose children were born here
and are citizens. The local march was
sponsored by the Quincy office of the United
Farmworkers and the Tallahassee
Farmworkers Solidarity Committee.
Many of the protesters work in the tomato,
mushroom, and construction industries. "We
hope the law is more fair for us. My country is
very poor, I came here to work. I came here to

on line in the near future, Arbor Crest and
South Springs, which have agreed to use
Netquincy's services.
A Comcast representative was in the
audience and responded to Netquincy's
agreement with Arbor Crest. K.C. Williams
said that she understood that Netquincy had
offered the apartment complex owners a
"steep door fee" to gain their service.
McLean said that the Netquincy had a
"favorable agreement with Arbor Crest"
but that no "steep fees" were paid.
Thomas said that Netquincy will also be
offering video and telephone services in the
near future as well.
That comment triggered another question
from Gay about the recent legislation
which limits municipalities involvement in
the private sector.
McLean said that Quincy had been
grandfathered in and was not affected by
the laws.
Gay in turn said he understood the
grandfathering clause, but was concerned
that 'it only pertained to the internet service
and not video and telephone services.
McLean said he thought they were
included, but would look into the matter.
The question still remained, for several
commissioners as to what actions could be
taken with Netquincy.
McLean mentioned several options for
the commission.
One would be to sell the enterprise. The
problem he added with that option would
be how the enterprise would have to be
sold. Since funding was through bond
issues there are several stipulation attached
to the sale of Netquincy including the tax
free attachment on the bonds for the bond
holders.
If it was sold the money would be
restricted and would have to go back into
utilities.
Another option would be a partnership.
That option again would be limited because
of the tax free bond issue and private
industry issues.
An outside management firm was another
option mentioned.
The workshop ended with only the
consensus to meet again on NetQuincy.


survive," said Jorge Aries, a construction
worker.
David Caulkett received thunderous
applause when he asked why the United
States has suddenly changed their loyalty.
"What is behind this change? What is the true
sentiment?" asked Caulkett, who is founder of
the Miami area Floridians for Immigration
Enforcement.
Gadsden County has the largest
concentration of Hispanics in the Big Bend
area with just over six percent of the
population of Hispanic origin. There is no
guess as to how many illegal immigrants there
may be in Gadsden County, but statewide
about 850,000 are considered illegal.
The protesters caught law enforcement off
guard. They did not need a permit because
they were confined to the sidewalk. Law
enforcement authorities were not notified,
according to some officers with the Quincy
Police Department and the Gadsden County
Sheriffs Office. "I was riding down the strcct
when I saw all of these people," said one
deputy.
Quincy Police Chief Gerald McSwain said
the protest was peaceful and without incident.
"If you're going to have a protest, this is the
way to have one," he said, observing the
crowd.

new 'Cold


Case' team

by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
After 16 years it's still almost too painful for
Linda Gurley to hear about her daughter.
Gurley couldn't control her emotions Saturday
afternoon and tears of sorrow streamed down her
face at first. Then, as if years of keeping her
feelings in check became too much, Gurley finally
let go and sobbed openly and heart-wrenchingly
for her child.
Feleshia Tatum, Gurley's daughter, is one of
Gadsden County's cold cases that Sheriff Morris
Young promised to re-open if he was elected
sheriff. In the past year three cold cases were
solved and six people now sit in the county jail
awaiting trial. But there are still 13 unsolved cases.
Families of victims were asked to come back for
a meeting, an update and were told that the cold
case investigations are moving into another phase.
"When we started this thing last year, it was
monumental. We've solved three cold cases with
the help of Florida Department of Law
Enforcement (FDLE) and that's unheard of when
people tend to be territorial," said Major Shawn
Wood of the Gadsden County Sheriff's Office.
The new phase means new people. Four retirees
with more than 120 years' experience will begin
working on the cold cases exclusively. The people
.that Young recruited and pressed into service are

investigations supervisor Wilfred Jiles, retired
Gadsden County Sheriff's deputy James Kenon,

investigator Don Baldwin.

10 The Gadsden County Times April 13,2006


Sexual Violence Awareness month brings ugly truth to front


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
Sexual violence can be one of the
most difficult and painful life
experiences. April is Sexual Assault
Awareness Month and as
communities around the nation look
for ways to draw attention to the
problem, it, continues to grow.
Gadsden County is no different.
The statistics are, to say the least,
unsettling.
Nationwide, over 700,000 women
are sexually assaulted each year and,
according to statistics from the
American Medical Association,
sexual assault continues to represent
the most rapidly growing violent
crime in the country. Sadly, it is
estimated that fewer than 50 pe cent
of rapes are ever reported.
It's a good chance that you know
someone who has been the victim of
sexual assault. Only about 20 percent
of those who are raped do not know
the victim. The rest, 80 percent, are
committed by friends, acquaintances,
intimates, and family members.
Among female rape victims, 61
percent'are under 18 years old. At
least 20 percent of adult women, 15
percent of college women and 12
percent of adolescent women have
experienced some sort of sexual
abuse or assault during their lifetime.
Whitney Sampson, the Gadsden
County Sheriffs Office Victim
Advocate officer, said that while male
sexual assault accounts for about five
percent of reported sexual assaults, a
growing number of women are
having sex with young boys. Many
may recall the Tampa woman who
has sexual relations with a high
school student in her class.
Recently, a Gadsden County
woman was arrested for sexual
battery after she tried to file a lawsuit
against the mother of a 16-year-old
boy for child support. "The woman
was in her early twenties when she
had a relationship with the boy who
was 14 years old at the time she
became pregnant," said a Quincy
police officer.
As our society becomes more
mobile, 'what was once considered
big city problems have come home to
roost in small, rural communities like
ours.
With two major universities, several
small colleges and a community
college with more than 11,000
students thirty minutes away, local
young people are at an even greater
risk when they choose to socialize in

It's called "Speak Out In the
Park" and the aim is to draw
attention to the problem of sexual
assault and abuse. The Gadsden
County Domestic Violence and
Sexual Abuse Task Force will
sponsor the event Thursday, April
27, at 6 p.m. in the park on the
west side of Quincy's City Hall.
"We have planned speakers as
well as performers," said Carnell
Jones, Gadsden County's
coordinator for Refuge House.
This issue is so important to our
community, Jones said, because
the numbers of sexually assaults
and sexual abuse cases are on the
rise in the county,
"We are paying special attention
to the problems of young people
and children. A lot of the problems
among teens and young adults
stems from the use of alcohol
while dating, or from the females
saying 'no' and the males


a college setting, whether they are
underage or not. A survey of 6,000
,college students enrolled at 32
institutions in the United States
found:
Fifty-four (54) percent of the
women surveyed had been the victim
of some form of sexual abuse; more
than one in four college-aged women
had been the victim of rape or
attempted rape.
Fifty-seven (57) percent of
assaults occurred on dates.
Seventy-three (73) percent of the
assailants and 55 percent of the
victims had used alcohol or drugs
before the assault.
Twenty-five (25) percent of the
men surveyed admitted some degree
of sexually aggressive behavior.
Forty-two (42) percent of the
victims never told anyone.
Sampson said many women don't
tell because they are afraid they will,
not be believed or they falsely think
that they somehow brought the
assault on themselves. "Fashions are
provocative these days for women
and especially girls. But, no matter
what a woman wears, that gives no
one the right to attack them,"


continuing to pursue them
sexually whether they want it or
not," Jones said
The task force selected the city
park for its visibility (on U.S.
Highway 90) and because of the
less formal setting. "We want
people to feel comfortable. They
can bring lawn chairs or blankets
and.come to hear our speakers and
see the talent. We have free hot
dogs and lemonade and all kinds
of giveaways and information they
can take with them," Jones said.
"This is a community event on a
very serious matter. We have to
use every opportunity we can to
bring awareness to sexual assault
and sexual abuse. We have to send
a message that this is wrong and
the community will not tolerate
this kind of behavior," said
Whitney Sampson, the victim
advocate for the Gadsden County
Sheriffs Office.
For more information on the
"Speak Qut In The Park" or to
participate, call Jones at 627-9733.


Sampson said.
Among teens, that same survey

dollars annually. A national study
showed that over 60 percent of
pregnant and parenting adolescents
had experienced molestation,
attempted rape, or rape before their
first pregnancy. Between 11-20
percent of adolescent girls are
pregnant as a direct result of sexual
assault.
A rape victim is 9 times more likely
than a non-victim to attempt suicide.
In a study of males sexually abused as
children, half had suicidal thoughts
and nearly a fourth actually attempted
suicide.
One study of homeless women


revealed some disturbing statistics:
* Fifty-one (51) percent of the boys
and 41 percent of the girls said forced
sex was acceptable if the boy "spent a
lot of money" on the girl.
* Thirty-one (31) percent of the
boys and 32 percent of the girls said it
was acceptable for a man to rape a
women if they have had a past sexual
experience.
* Eighty-seven (87) percent of boys
and 79 percent of girls said sexual
assault was acceptable if the man and
the woman are married.
* Sixty-five (65) percent of the boys
and 47 percent of the girls said it was
acceptable for a boy to rape a girl if
they had been dating for more than
six months.
Sexual assault affect everyone.
Even if sexual violence has not
touched you personally, you are still
paying the price for the crime of rape.
Studies have shown' that social
problems are strongly related to a
history of sexual assault or abuse.
If you think rape doesn't affect you,
you're wrong. Myriad problems can
stem from sexual abuse that cost the
American taxpayers billions of

found that 38 percent has a history of
childhood sexual abuse and 46
percent had a history of rape as an
adult.
Equally sad, is the fact that as high
as 75 percent of women in treatment
for alcoholism report a history of
incest or childhood sexual abuse. A
study of males sexually abused as
children revealed that over 80 percent
had a history of substance abuse.

'Great Gadsden

County Easter

Egg Hunt' is

Saturday

by ALICE DU PONT
Times Edior
"Here comes Peter Cotton Tail, hopping
down the bunny trail."
Well, not really. It's more like the
brothers of the Michael R. Moore Masonic
Lodge #764 of Gadsden County. The 50-


member organization has decided to throw
the "Great Gadsden County Easter Egg
Hunt" this Saturday at the Joe Ferolito
Recreation Center on Graves Street in
Quincy.
"We wanted to do something fun for the
children as a part of our community
service. When we were brainstorming
ideas, one of the members suggested the
Easter Egg Hunt and the suggestion caught
on," said Charles Hayes, Worshipful
Master (or president.)
The hunt is open to every child in
Gadsden County through middle school.
Hayes said the hunt begins at 11 a.m. but
all participants must be inside the center by
10:30 a.m. The hunt will be held at Corry


Field in three categories: small chicks (pre-
schoolers and toddlers), little chicks
(elementary school students) and medium
chicks (middle school students). Hayes is
asking parents to accompany their children.
They should also provide containers for the
eggs found during the hunt.
"We will have police officers there to
help them cross the street, but we have no
chaperones," Hayes said.
The organization will also assemble the
longest bunny hop line. "While the men are
hiding eggs, we will form a bunny hop line.
Hopefully, it will wrap around the inside of
the gymnasium floor several times. It
should be fun for the kids, and adults, too,"
Hayes said.


In addition to the hunt, there will be
games and free food. "We needed a little
more than eggs, so there will be free hot
dogs and drinks for everyone," he said.
Hayes said there will be enough eggs to
go around. "Hillandale Farms has donated
300 dozen eggs for the event and other
partners have donated door prizes," Hayes
said. Kids lucky enough to find one of
several golden eggs will be given giant
Easter baskets filled with all sorts of
goodies and games.
The hunt, Hayes said, will coincide with
the organization's first anniversary. "We
were chartered last April in Jacksonville so
this is a good way to celebrate," Hayes
said.

Havana school wows state with after-school program


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

They may not have all of the
moves down like the super models,
but watch out world! Make way for
the Modeling Club of Havana
Elementary School. If their struts
and turns don't wow you, their talk
about what it takes to be a good
person will make you take notice.
At least some of Florida's top
officials think so.
Last week in Orlando at the 21st
Century Conference, the program
received the State Award for the
Best After School Program for
Character Building in the state.
Wanda Barkley, an assistant
secretary at Havana Elementary
School, started volunteering to
teach modeling to help some
students with their self-esteem
when she came to work at the
school nine years ago.
"I noticed that a lot of the children
seemed to lack self-esteem and
confidence. Some of them walked
around with their heads down," she
said. It was during the Martin
Luther King, Jr. weekend that she
heard a part of his speech and those
words sparked something deep
inside of her soul. "The part about
judging people on the content of
their character and not the color of
their skin stayed with me. I thought
if I could combine modeling and
character building, I could help the
kids," said the former Revlon hair
model.
She started a little organization
after school to help kids with their
homework and to add a little fun. "I
called it the modeling club. The
catch was before we started
modeling we worked on academics.
The emphasis was always on
education and improving grades,
the modeling was to get them in the
program," she said.
The concept and the idea worked
and people took notice. Two years
ago, the program caught the eye of


Dr. David Langston. "I knew what
they were doing was positive and I
was able, through the Norris
Langston Foundation (his brother),
to help the program with funds to
purchase materials and manuals,"
he said.
"Programs from all over the state
are critiqued on their performance.
To win this award says a lot about
the program the people at Havana
Elementary School have put
together," Langston said.
Barkley said she was surprised to
hear that the program had earned
such an honor. "I know the program
works because I see the results. I
know how they come in and how
they leave at the end of the year. I
knew it was a good program but I
didn't know that anyone else knew
it," she said.
Elizabeth Turner, school
principal, and After School
Coordinator Hilda Jackson also
noticed the difference in the
students who are in the club and
those who are not. "I see them
being proud. The students are
motivated and encouraged," Turner
said.
Fifth grader Brandon Simmons
admits that he could be a handful
for any teacher. He joined the club
because he just wanted to model.
"It's no that hard to pose. Before I
go out (on stage), I just take deep
breaths," he said. But what he is
most proud of is his change in
attitude. "I've learned to say nice
things to people and to use kind
words when I talk. I like myself
better being nice," he said.
Turner said the program has
helped Brandon with his work ethic
in class. Brandon made the honor
roll for the first time in his
academic career this past grading
period, she said.
"My friends want to get into the
modeling club now," Brandon said.
They'll have to wait until next
year. With only a few weeks left in
the school term, Barkley isn't

taking on any more students. She
said she has had to limit the class
size to fifty students because of the
time it takes and because the class
meets once a week from 3:30 to 6
p.m. Parents must provide
transportation after the program.
Brother and sister team Carvaris
and Cartesia Moore enjoy
modeling; the character building
part is an added bonus. Their older
bother, Camell, who is now in
middle school enjoyed to program
so much he encouraged them to
join.
"If I wasn't a member of the club,
I would be at home doing my
homework or talking with my
'friends," Carvaris said. He surely
wouldn't be learning a skill that
could help him make money later in
life or make his name a houselpld
word.
For 10-year-old Shakerra Jenkins,
the best part about the program is
the character building. "I liked it
when we learn our character traits.
They are: courage, kindness,
responsibility, trustworthiness and
respect."
The students practice modeling
about an hour each week. They
were last invited to showcase their
talents at the Florida A & M
University Relay For Life event
several weeks ago. Each December
the student models participate in a
fashion show. "It started out free
and we had a crowd. Then we
started charging and we still had a


crowd. Now, this is something the
community looks forward to seeing
each year," Barkley said.
Barkley makes every effort to
produce the most professional
fashion show for the children.
"Local television on-air
personalities have been generous
with us and -have volunteered to
MC some of our shows. The kids
really enjoy it," Barkley said.
Funds from the annual show help
with the cost of the annual end of
the year trip. Last year, students
visited Tampa where they were VIP
guests of the Tampa Bay Bucs. The
trip included a guided tour of Bucs
Stadiums by the team's official
mascot, a tour of a local television
station and a stop-off at Busch
Gardens.
This year the students sold 1,000


dozen Krispy Kreme donuts to raise
money for their upcoming trip to
the MLK Center and Six Flags in
Atlanta.
"I think just about everybody in
Havana bought donuts kids from
the kids and their parents," Turner

and character building instructor Wanda Barkley show off the
certificate the program won last week in Orlando as one of the Best
Character Building Programs in Florida.

disabilities to enjoy a real camp atmosphere,
while providing at the same time the needed
care the children require.
The Quincy Rotary Club, camp director
Leslie Smith said has over the past several
years raised through its Golf Tournament over
50 percent of the funds needed to operate the
camp.
Last year there were 30 children at the
camp and Smith said she expects about 40 at
this year's camp.
The Rotary Camp not only helps the
disabled children enjoy a camp atmosphere,
Smith said. The counselors which consist of
High School students and college students
have an opportunity to make a difference in a
chill's life and leave the camp with changed
attitudes.
Smith is shown in the picture above with
members of the Quincy Rotary Club. Smith is

years. He is familiar with many
GCSO officers from past working
relationships.
The Baldwins worked together
as private investigators with their
own firm for over ten years. Don
Baldwin, as an FBI agent, worked
such high profile cases as the Ted
Bundy case and the Christopher
Wilder case. They have also been
asked by- the family of Ali
Gilmore to help with that case.
"We've got a diverse group of
expertise and that's what we
need. It's like writing a paper and
'you (proof) read it perfectly every
time. Then someone comes along
and finds all of your misspelled
words. This is what this is, they
may be able to go in and find
what we have overlooked all of
this time. It's a fresh set of eyes,"
said Major Wood.
Also, Big Bend Crimestoppers
has joined in the search for
killers. Allen Stucks, executive
director, said the organization is
prepared to bring all of its
resources, including cash
payments for information and
large billboards, to Gadsden
County. "Just recently we put up

20,000 square feet.
"This new state of the art
facility will really assist in
serving the needs for this
growing area," said Brian
Beasley, EMS director. He said
the building will be constructed
to withstand category 4 hurricane
winds, and will be used as a
staging area for emergency
personnel should the need arise.
"The fire station will also host
community meetings and
function as a training area. "This

We put them up on a Tuesday
and by Thursday, they were in
jail," he said, adding, "so they
work."
"The billboards trigger
memories that people may have
suppressed," Stucks said.
Major Tommy Haire said the
new people will have everything
they need, and that he looks
forward to calling families and
telling them that a suspect has
been jailed in the case of their
loved one.
Ron Schofield isn't so
optimistic about finding the killer
of his father, Earl. "I think it has
been too many years," he said
with an air of resignation.
In an effort reassure him, Inv.
Shelton Turner said it would be
difficult to find the killers
because some people may have
died with information and others
may not be ready to come
forward with information. "It's
tough but it isn't out of reach.
Somebody out there holds the
clues," he said.
"We have people (the retirees)
who have nothing but time. They
don't have to break off and look
at other cases," Turner said.

commissioner Brenda Holt.
The fire station will cover a five

Robertsville, St. John and
Scottown, and will have one
permanent fire truck for
residential service and one truck

now, said House, is to recruit
volunteer firefighters from the

Banks
Continued from Page 1
Banks or his contract.
In an unrelated issue Taylor
asked the commissioners to
reconsider the freezing of the
discretionary fund.
Each commissioner has a
$1,000 fund he could use for
items in the community. In order
to use the money, however, it
must be approved by the
commission
Taylor was absent at the last
meeting when commissioner
Keith Dowdell asked for $800
from his discretionary fund for
several organizations.
Interim finance director Christie
Joyner was asked if the city could
afford the expenditure and she
replied, no.
The commission voted down
the measure and then froze the
discretionary fund in a 3-1 vote
for the remainder of the year.
Taylor could not get someone
from the winning side of the
measure to bring it back to the
table and the discretionary fund
issue died again.
In other business;
* The commission approved the
contract with the local
firefighters union.
* The commission discussed the
upcoming fire contract with
Gadsden County. Quincy fire
chief H.E. Smith said that the
new contract would have
significant changes from the old
contract. One point he made was


that last year the county
accounted for about 62 percent of
the city's fire calls.
The fire department has a $1.5
million budget.
* Gretna's water problems
found their way into the Quincy
meeting when commissioners
heard a report from Banks about
a recent interconnect issue.
Gretna signed an interlocal
agreement with Quincy for an
interconnect with Quincy's Mt.
Pleasant wells two months ago.
Gretna has agreed to receive 33
percent of their water from
Quincy. The problem arose when
Gretna's number two well
(Gretna has two functional wells)
failed. The interconnect system
would only allow Gretna to
receive water when the system
turned on to send water to the
Quincy tanks.
The cost to fix the problem
Banks said was in the $10,000 to
$20,000 range. Who then was
responsible for the cost became
the next issue.
According to McLean the initial
problem came several years ago
when the original negotiations
with Gretna began. At that time
Quincy's water was to only
supplement the Greta water
system. That changed two
months, ago when Gretna agreed
to purchase 33 percent of their
water from Quincy.
In last week's Gretna meeting it
was stated that the City of
Quincy would pay to correct the
problem.

with revisions and additions of
management and financial
policies.
Recommendations included:
Allowing department heads to
approve travel for their staff.
Allowing the county manager
to approve purchases up to
$25,000 before going to
competitive bids. The manager
could also be allowed to approve
contracts up to that same amount.
Lawson said the changes are
needed to expedite the county's

Chattahoochee looking to


by BYRON SPIRES
Times Staff Writer
The Chattahoochee city council is looking at
an ordinance regarding policies for old junk
vehicles and other debris and junk in the city.
City manager Lee Gamer said it is the same
one the county is now using. Garner will be
the code enforcement officer for the junk or
abandoned vehicles ordinance for the city.
"It is starting to become a problem and now
is the time to take action to keep it from
becoming an eyesore," Garner said.

EMS

Continued from Page 2
emergency room been open they
could have been taken care of at
home. "The baby could have been
attended to locally as well as the
man whose family thought he'd
had a heart attack. The baby had a
high fever, but her temperature
could have been managed. The
man had too much to drink and his
pulse was slow, that's why the
family reported they couldn't get a
pulse," he said.
As soon as they return from calls
and gas up the ambulance, they
must begin paperwork. The
reports have to be filled out
correctly, both computer copies
and hard copies. As a supervisor
Hill must check all reports. The
reports also must be ready with
Pat Peacock comes in to start the
billing.
'That has been our saving grace.
Collections are going well," said
EMS director, Brian Beasley.
With an annual budget of around
$1.4 million, Beasley said he
could use another $300,000 to put
on six more paramedics. "The
paramedics we have (24 full time
and 18 part time) are doing an
outstanding job, I'm really proud
of them," he said.
But he is concerned that because
other counties pay more than
Gadsden, he might lose some
valued employees. "They have all
stuck it out since the hospital
closed. They have all worked hard
despite the long hours. They are
holding on, but they are teetering,"
Beasley said.
That's why he makes the extra
effort to praise them for a job well
done and tries to accommodate
them as much as possible if a
family situation arises or if they
just need to take a break. Hill
keeps a close eye on the
paramedics, too. "We're very
close and I can usually tell when
someone needs to talk about
something.
"The job is stressful. I can
especially see the stress if they go


to a call and something bad has
happened to a child. Luckily the
county has an excellent policy and
they can get counseling to work
through it. We see a lot and it can
take it's toll," Hill said.
The paramedics are always
learning. As new and better
materials are purchased they are
trained. "We just had a training on
the new Rapid Sequence Induction
system,"said Hill. The new
machine is less invasive if there is
a fluid buildup around the heart or
lungs. The new technology helps
release the pressure until the
patient is taken to the hospital.
With competition stiff to recruit
paramedics, Beasley is hopeful
that three paramedics currently in
school will choose Gadsden
County. While the county will not
pay tuition up front, there is a
program that will reimburse the
$3,800 cost of the training.
"It is a problem that all rural
counties are suffering from in our
area. We meet about once a month
to discuss our problems and to
help each other look for
solutions," Beasley said.
All of the paramedics agree that
an urgent care unit would be ideal
until the hospital reopens. Of the
1,800 patients taken to other
hospitals since November, about
half could have been treated here
if the emergency room had been
open.
The woman with the paper cut.
The boy with a knot on his head.
The toddler with a scraped knee,
all could have be attended to here
if we had the facility. County
commissioners and county
attorneys are working hard to get
an urgent care facility open
within the next 60 days. Until
then, the sirens will blast up and
down U.S. 90 and Interstate 10
carrying Gadsden countians to
hospitals in other counties. But the
dedicated paramedics have one
thing in their minds:
"Our job is to care for the
people of Gadsden County and we
do that to the best of our abilities
and in the kindest, most
professional way possible," Hill
said.

Honk!'


The Ugly Duckling Musical

opens this weekend at QMT

The Quincy Music Theatre's final musical production of their
23rd season,' Honk! The Ugly Duckling Musical, opens on
Friday, April 14 with an 8 PM curtain for six performances.
Directed by Travis Young, with musical direction by Bryan
Richards, HONK! is based on Hans Christian Andersen's "The
Ugly Duckling"and is the story of Ugly, whose odd, gawky
looks instantly incite prejudice from his family and neighbors.

must find his way home. Along his rollicking and harrowing
journey he not only discovers his true beauty and glorious
destiny, but also finds love and acceptance in all its forms.
Witty and hilarious, but also deeply moving, "Honk!" treats
audiences to equal amounts of laughter and tears. Its charm,
humor and message of tolerance is perfect for a family
audience... and every audience.
Honk! performances are at the Leaf Theatre, 118 East
Washington Street, Quincy on Friday and Saturday, April 14 -
15 and 21 22 at 8 PM with Sunday matinees on April 16 and
23 at 3 PM.

Barineau, Jeff Davis, former employee Gloria Gaston with her
grandson Will Boyd.


&' KPC, there


was Chandler's


For forty-five years locals and travelers alike
have enjoyed a quick burger or milk shake
from one of Quincy's best known landmarks,
Chandler's Hamburgers. The family-run fast
food restaurant will close its doors forever this
Saturday, April, 15.
Generation after generation have called
Chandler's their special meeting place. For
some it was a place to take your date after a
high school dance or trip to the show, and
hang out with friends. For others it has been a
gathering place after Wednesday night church
service or softball games.
There are as many memories of Chandler's
as there are customers that pass through their
door. Some old and some fairly new.
"It's the worst thing I've heard all day," 19
year-old Kyle Poythress, said when he heard
the news of his favorite fast food restaurant
closing.
Poythress was among the dozen or so
regular patrons who were standing at the
counter Friday waiting on their favorite
selection of Chandler's lunch time menu.
A steady stream of customers continued to
file through the door as the lunchtime
Chandler's crowd made their orders for giant
burgers and fries or the heavy favorite Friday,
an "Old Fashion Burger combo."
Poythress was not the only disappointed
patron. Others were surprised and
disappointed that their favorite eating place
was closing its doors.
One customer from out of town stood in
shock as he heard the restaurant was shutting
down. He had made a special.trip, he said to
pick up a "giant burger" on his way through
town. He, like many others, will miss the
good food of Chandler's.
Producing a good product for a reasonable
price was the thought back in September of
1962 when Robert and Doris Chandler started
on what has been a 45 year journey of raising
a family and building a business.
Doris Chandler, now 82 and matriarch of the
family, has run the business for the past
several years. It has not been an easy decision
to shut down the family business, but the
"time has come" she said to bring this part of
the journey to an end.
Although the journey started all those years
ago is now winding down, the story of the
family who has worked together, prayed
together and faced tragedy together becomes a
story within itself
Robert Chandler passed away in 1981
leaving the business in the family's hands.
Son Bob, a hard working well liked man by
those who knew him, was a mainstay of the
family business until he passed away in 2002
after battling cancer for four years.
Daughter Sherrie Smith, succumbed to
cancer two months after Bob's death.
Through all of the tragedy, one anchor has
held fast, Chandler's Hamburgers. It has been
the family's link to their friends and
neighbors, a place of refuge in hard times.
Over those years the restaurant has been
abuzz with Chandler family members. Most
recently Doris' grandsons, John Robert
Chandler (son of Bob and Robbie Susan) and
Hunter Smith (son of Sherrie and Jerry Smith)
have worked in the restaurant.
The two young men represented the third
generation of family members to work at
Chandler's.
Now, though, it is time to move on.
Closing the doors after 45 year is not an easy
task.
There are those last minute details that must

be dealt with, but the hardest detail for the
Chandler family will be saying goodbye to a
lifetime of committed customers.
It will not be easy, but it will bring together
the Chandler family for one last walk down
memory lane.
Doris' son, Shelly, now a Baptist minister in
Bonifay, is on hand this week to help his
mother through the last few days before the
restaurant closes.
Two of Shelly's children, Brittany and
David, are there to help, too.
Brittany, 15, is in charge of the french fries,
while David, 13, is being tutored by his dad
on the finer techniques of frying hamburgers
on the big grill behind the counter.
"It's like riding a bicycle," Shelly said about
flipping hamburgers again after such a long
hiatus.
Shelly is very familiar with cooking
hamburgers. He and all of his brothers and
sisters were involved in one capacity or other
in the restaurant growing up.
Brother Scotty and sister Debbie are in town
to help with the closing of the restaurant
Saturday night.
Chandler's Hamburgers became a family
affair on the first day the restaurant opened
back in 1961.
The journey, however, started way before
the first hamburger was ever cooked.
Robert and Doris started their journey
together in 1945. That journey would
eventually lead them back to Quincy and
Chandler's Hamburgers.
Robert's father, Samuel Chandler, had been
the Quincy Assembly of God minister and
Doris, who had grown up in Bristol, was
working in Quincy at the time. The pair met


through Robert's twin sister, Margaret Futch,
on one of Robert's visits to Quincy and were
married in 1945.
Sherrie, Bob and Debbie would join the
Navy family as they moved around the
country.
Robert retired as Petty Officer First Class
from the Navy after 20 years in Maryland.
The growing family moved to Milwaukee
where Robert took a job managing one of the
newly franchised McDonald's.
Scottie would be born in Milwaukee.
North Florida was a prime area, the pair,
thought for a fast food restaurant, and after a
year with McDonald's the Chandlers headed
south.
They arrived to late though, and the first
McDonald's in Tallahassee opened about the
time they were moving to Quincy.
The pair decided to strike out on their own
and opened their first fast food restaurant,
Chandler's Hamburgers, on East Jefferson
Street.
The building is now vacant, but still has the
tell-tale brick pillars that once held the
Chandler's sign hawking the 15 cent
hamburgers.
Scottie, an engineer with the Department of
the Navy who now lives in Panama City, said,
"Looking back, to start a business and sell
something for 15 cents and make a living,
takes a lot of drive and determination."
Scottie was right.
"The people of Quincy accepted us with
open arms," Doris said about those first few
months in a brand new business and a first for
the community.

Every year at springtime millions of pe,:.ple around the world celebrate Easter. The holiday is .-. b-) ,
the most important of Christian holidays, celebrating the resurrection, the center focus of the ir) c
religion. Along with the religious meaning, this holiday is filled with many :raditions including, ) Circle th
Easter egg hunts, egg rolling egg painiing or dying, the Easter Bunny, and Easter baskets. c s F P z G
Baby chicks and white lilies are also notable symbols of the holiday, which along with the egg, D R W H
symbolize new life and new beginnings. Historians believe that this symbolism comes from the
religious meaning of the holiday, as well as the new life seen in spring, as the Easter holiday N E E G G C
coincides with the vernal equinox, or i f-.t day of spring.
The term Easter is derived from the name Eostre, an ancient goddess of the 5th century Anglo- o V A X F R
Saxons. It is believed that there was a festival in her honor during the spring equinox, which in T o S s V Q
turn the term Easter was derived. In most of the world, aside from English or German speaking
countries, Easter, is derived from the Hebrew word Pesach, meaning Passover. In the Western T T
Christian churches Easter is celebrated on the fist Sunday following the full moon that occurs on N S E E E E
or following the vernal equine'. usually oc.curling on March 21st. In the Eastern Christian
churches the date that Easter is celebrated is calculated based on the Passover. The season I A R D K 0
that proceeds the Easter holiday is known as Lent, which is a forly-si., day period that begins H P B A S H
with.Ash Wednesday.
Many traditions have become very popular in celebrating Easter. The Faster Bunny, a mythical 3 G U 0 A Y
creature that delivers Easter baskets to children the night before Easter is very popular in A Z N F 8 G
Western cultures. The tradition of dyeing or painting Easter eggs is a favorite among children,
as well as later hunting the eggs in Easter egg hunts. Chocolate bunnies are a popLdar treat on w A N K H 0
Easter as well. For many years a itad.t.on in Washington DC has been the Easter Egg Roll. This v I Y U C L
event occurs on the lawn of the Capitol in which children and adults alike are invited to roll eggs
down Pennsylvania Avenue began as early as 1872 and jsed to occur on the lawn of the White J I N K M B
House. This has also been known as EqgCoet 'OI, '' ', i i 0 T T 8 P U M

Talquin Electric selects

Tallavana's Jessie

Baker for DC trip


Talquin Electric Cooperative
held its annual Youth Tour
program on March 15 and 16.
High school juniors representing
schools throughout Talquin's
four county service area
assembled in Tallahassee for
competition. Each student was
selected by their respective
school administration.
The four students competitively
selected to attend the Washington
D.C. conference in June are
Jessie Baker from Tallavana
Christian School, Darren Evans
from Liberty County High
School, Whitney Roberts from
North Florida Christain High
School, and Joey Yore from
Wakulla High School.
The Youth Tour was inspired
by the late President Lyndon B.
Johnson. As a senator from Texas
he addressed the Annual Meeting
of the National Rural Electric
Cooperatives Association
(NRECA) in 1957.
"If one thing goes out of the
meeting," Johnson said, he hoped
it would be "sending youngsters
to the national capital where they
can see actually what the flag
stands for and represents."
Beginning that year, some Texas
cooperatives sent groups of
young people to Washington to
work in Senator Johnson's office
for the purpose of learning about
government.
Iowa and Illinois cooperatives
followed suit and by 1959, Youth
Tour had grown to 130 students.
The Youth Tour now has over
1,500 students participating each
year.
In Tallahassee, the Talquin
students joined students from six
Florida cooperatives.' Two
representatives ...from _NRECA
conducted a congressional insight
workshop for the students.
Our students found out first
hand that being elected involves a
lot more than just packing up and
moving to our nation's capital to
become a member of the 110th


Congress. The group was divided
into teams, each representing a
newly elected member of
congress.
Each team is given a specific
biography, district description
and political party/staff
information. Teams select staff,
choose party leaders, and deal
with issues of public policy.
Policy issues are discussed and
each team has to reach a
consensus to solve the problem in
a given period of time.
This fast paced, political
challenge immersed these
students in a real world
experience of the legislative
process and allowed them the
chance to develop an
understanding of a day in the life
of a United States
Congressperson.
With increasingly tight
deadlines, team members had to
decide which bills to support,
which committee posts to seek,
how much time to devote to fund
raising, and what tradeoffs to
make amidst constituents, party,
lobbyists, etc.
There were 11 rounds of
decision making. The final round
is managing a campaign budget
for re-election.
The Congressional Insight
computer simulation gave teams
instant feedback. Within seconds,
the teams learned how their
decisions helped or hurt their
chances for re-election.
The feedback came in the form
of poll results, memoranda and
district media coverage. Just life,
real life!
The group visited the Florida
House of Representatives. While
seated in the visitors gallery, they
were given an opportunity to
observe bills being introduced
and voted upon. Seeing a bill
navigated through one branch of
government was insightful.
The group next saw an IMAX
movie while at the Challenger
Learning Center.


Knowing the back
of your hand
Mr. Hylton, an associate of
Florida A&M University
Cooperative Extension Programs,
has partnered with St. John
Elementary School for a number of
years. He helps to reinforce the
science that is taught in the
classroom with hands on
experiences.
Here he is seen (on the left in the
picture at right) working with a
group of second grade students
from Mrs. Davis' class as they
perform an experiment for the
upcoming science fair.
The students set out to find out
how well we know the back of our
hand. They tested both students and
teachers, and the results were
shocking.
To find out more about this and
other science experiments at St.
John Elementary School visit the
school's media center during
school hours on Monday, April 10.

work, it had to become a family
affair as well. Shelly would join
the family and babysitting became
a part of the equation.
"My job was to baby sit the two
boys," Debbie Harrison, a school
teacher now living in Gardendale,
Alabama and married to Mark, a
Baptist minister, said about those
early days at Chandler's.
Scottie and Shelly have similar
memories of their early childhood
and days at Chandler's.
The two youngest Chandler
family members were delegated
to folding chicken boxes for the
restaurant's other favorite meal:
fried chicken.
"I would sit on the ice cream
freezer and fold those boxes and
stack them in the window,"
Shelly, said.
Chandler's became not only a
place to eat, but a social gathering
spot as well. It was the first
fast food restaurant in Quincy.

Americans. At the time, African-
Americans were delegated to
restaurant back rooms or worse,
back doors. Although there were
two separate windows, it was still
a bold move, in a then-segregated
south.
In the sixties it wasn't
uncommon to see dozens of cars
lined up around Chandler's on
any given night as teenagers and
even a few adults socialized.
After a home sports games
Chandler's became a mecca of
students buying milkshakes and
vanilla cokes for
their dates.

As the journe'
comes to an end, a
lot of memories will start to
surface for both the family and
their patrons.
Some will remember their first
kiss, others maybe their first date..
Maybe it will be spinning tires
leaving Chandler's or hearing the
revving of the Chevelle SS 396's
or the Charger Hemi 383's. It
could be the memory of the "Four
Tops" on the radio, or the
Ventures' "Wipe Out" booming
from the four-inch speaker on the.
dash of a 1958 English Ford.
Memories for the Chandler clan,
however, were not on the outside
of the restaurant.
The Chandler kids grew up with
Chandler's as part of their day to


day lives. Sherrie helped in the
early days until she went away to
college.
Bob came home from college
back in 1972 and told his dad he
wanted to work in the business. It
was not until his illness in 2002
prohibited him from working that
he stopped.
Debbie helped with the
bookkeeping and watching the
two younger boys. "I learned to
work hard and how blessed we
were as a family," Debbie said,
adding that her parents taught her
that giving back was part of the
blessing as they helped people in.
the community.
Shelly said one of his earliest
memories was of his father
saying, "Doris get this boy outta
here" after he had been on a knob-
turning rampage turning all of
the cookers and grills up to high.
A story that verifies Debbie's
importance as a babysitter.
Both Scottie and Shelly worked
in the business until moving to
their own careers.
Chandler's became a local
household name, and the idea of
good service and good food began
to spread. The Chandler family
opened 14 franchises from
Athens, Georgia to Gainesville,
Florida. Although the bulk of the
franchises have since been closed,
in its hey-day thousands were
being served daily in a Chandler's
restaurant.
It wasn't just the Chandler
family that benefited from the
restaurant. Chandler's
Hamburgers has employed
hundreds of local residents over
its 45 year history.
One of those young people the
Chandlers employed years ago
said the
experience
helped him in
many ways,
..- especially in
.... his current
employment.
"The police
officers would
come by every
night and get
chicken boxes.
I got to know
all of the
Quincy police
officers,"
Quincy Police
Chief Gerald
NlcSwain said
about working
at Chandler's.
The year was
1973 and
McSwain was
a senior in high school working at
Chandler's he said to have
spending money (for dating
purposes he added) and to help
buy his school clothes.
McSwain said he told then QPD
officer Tommy Haire, "One day
I'm gonna be a police officer."
After going into military service
after graduation, that is exactly
what happened.
'Working at Chandler's wasn't
just a job, McSwain said. The
Chandlers took and interest in his
life.
"Mrs. Chandler made sure we
had done our home work and
made sure we went home after
work," McSwain said.


McSwain said Mrs. Chandler
bought corsages for their
girlfriends on prom night.
During the time McSwain
worked at Chandler's he learned a
lot including how to handle irate
customers, a skill useful in police
work he said.
One customer, McSwain said,
made an impression that has
lasted for over 32 years.
"I was told to watch for this
particular customer and have a
double burger, fries and coffee
ready when he walked to the
counter," McSwain said.
It was Doctor Levy that
McSwain had to be on the lookout
for. The exact change, McSwain
said would be handed through the
window as Levy's lunch was
handed to him.
McSwain is part of a
long line of former employees,
way too many to list in just one
article about Chandler's.
But, a few need special attention
Dewey Rogers helped open the
first Chandler's and was with the
family until 2001. Emily Jensen
or "Granny" as the Chandlers
refer to her, was also a long time
employee, as were Gloria Gaston
and Loise O'Neal. Bert Debord, a
20-year employee, will help close
Chandler' Saturday.
The move from the old building
in 1972 to Chandler's' current '
location in the Gadsden Shopping
Center would prove to be a wise
move. "We doubled our business
on this side of town," Shelly said.
Closing the doors for the last
. time will be hard, but the family
decided that it was time to let go
of Chandler's. Doris said that
every day now she is reminded of
the history she and her family
have with Quincy. Especially
when she sees the children of
children she has watched grow up
at Chandler's.


"I'll miss them," she said about
her customers.
"I wouldn't change a thing,
Robert wouldn't either," Doris
said about the journey that started
some 45 years ago.
Doris said that her and Robert's
plans had been to move back to
Quincy, raise their family by
giving them a good Christian
home to grow up in and then
sending them on their way. Doris
and Robert raised five children
that gave them nine grandchildren
and two great-grandchildren.
Her family's actions and their
lives say she and their father
accomplished that goal.
Doris will be the first to tell you
that the journey has been difficult
at times, and that a lot of prayer
and trust in the Lord have been
her foundation throughout her
life.
As she readies herself for the
future Doris is reflective of the
past and all of the patrons, friends
and family that have made this
journey thus far worth the trip.
"Thanks for the memories," she
says to all of us.
