As a nation debates a

new immigration law,

Gadsden workers wait

Story and Photos by BYRON SPIRES
Times Staff Writer
For many people in Gadsden County national politics are
far away in Washington D.C. and garner only a few
comments during a presidential election. One national
issue, immigration, showed up last week on the doorstep
of Gadsden County's courthouse.
About 3000 hispanic demonstrators gathered on the
courthouse lawn in protest of US House of
Representative's immigration reform bill, HR 4437.
Over the next few weeks we will be looking at
immigration, especially the new pending laws and the
affect it could have on Gadsden County.
Sii t, let us look at the changes that created all of the
national uproar. Like all issues dealing with people and
their fate.this bill covers the gamut of opinions, from the
bill being too lenient, all the way to abolishing the need
for immigration reform altogether.
The need for the reform stems from questions
concerning the United States borders and the impact of
illegal immigrants on many states who say that
undocumented workers draw on their family services
coffers.
This is intended to be a summary of the bill and the
events that involve local residents in such a national
debate.
Gadsden County has a growing Hispanic population.
The 2000 US Census states that 2500 (an estimated 2858
in 2004) Gadsden County residents are, Hispanic. There
are an estimated 850,000 illegal aliens in Florida. The law
will have a direct affect on the 11-12 million
undocumented immigrants estimated to be in this country
now.
Gadsden County ranks high among the North Florida
counties with illegal immigrants, the exact number is

We'll look at those it- j trhum iti .
*Next Week: Gadsden's Hispanic
population...Those who matter most
unknown. Although agriculture related businesses are
usually the ones most think about when illegals are
discussed, the construction industry is also affected by the
influx of illegal immigrants.
HR 4437 passed the house late last year. The bill or
some form of the bill must pass the US Senate before it
can become law.
The i.'.'. Inunigration Law" as it is being referred to
has many facets.
At this point in the process there are still quite a few
"ifs" in the process of a new immigration reform reaching
maturity as a full blown law.
The house bill, which has created most of the uproar so
far, was passed December 16, 2005. The official title for
the law is the Border Protection, Anti-Terrorism and
Illegal Immigration Control Act of 2005.
In layman's term it lays down a number of requirements.
The bill itself is many pages long (256) and would
require many more pages to explain its content. The bill is
directed at all illegal aliens of all nations.
Some of the highlights of HR 4437 are:
* Unlawful presence would now be a crime and a felony.
Undocumented immigrants may serve time and be barred
from future legal status.
* Anyone or any organization who assists an
undocumented immigrant to reside or remain in the
United States knowingly or with reckless disregard could
be liable to criminal penalties and five years in jail.
* The Department of Homeland Security would be


required to erect up to 700 miles of fencing along the
Southwest border at points with the highest number of
immigrant deaths have occurred. It also authorizes the
department to do a feasibility study about erecting barriers
along the Canadian border
* State and local law enforcement are authorized to
enforce federal immigration laws. Those that refuse to
participate could lose federal funding.
* Asylum seekers and refugees who are convicted of a
minor offense, such as petit theft, would be barred from
permanent legal residency and eventual citizenship.
* Document fraud would be considered an aggravated
felony and would subject the asylum seeker to deportation
and bar re-entry.

Grant gives 9-1-1 first upgrade in 14 years


'It's like going

from Mayberry

to Star Trek'

by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
Sheriff Morris Young announced last week
that the Florida Office of E-911 in the
Department of Emergency Management has
awarded the county a $458,000 grant to
improve communications.
There has not been an upgrade in 14 years
and the system is outdated, according to
Young.
"When we have finished, it will be like
going from Mayberry to Star Trek," said
Robert Pough of 911 Direct, the company
installing the system.
The dispatchers will be moving to new
offices as well. "When the library moves out,
we will use that space for dispatchers and the
Emergency Management Office," Young said


The Emergency Management Office is
currently on the first floor. The Supervisor of
Elections Office will occupy that floor.
Doug Brown, supervisor of dispatching
office housed at the county jail said the
current office space leaves a lot to be desired.
There is no outside ventilation and the
antiquated air conditioning unit is often so
noisy that dispatchers have to turn it off so
they can hear calls clearly.
"It gets hot in here and they suffer at lot.
This is a high stress job," Brown said.
Dispatchers handle all of the calls from a
30-foot by 30-foot room crammed with
computers, desks, consoles and other
equipment. Under the floor are approximately
30 miles of wire. Some sections of the floor
have no coverings.
The homemade consoles hold up outdated
computers. "They do a very good job with the
equipment they have. They just patch it up
and keep going. That's why I was so happy to
get this grant. It will make their jobs a lot less
stressful," Young said.
The new equipment will have a state of the

Cuban minister

by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
A church in the tiny town of '-
Greensboro, Fl and an even -
smaller church in the tiny town of ,
Horquitos, Cuba have managed to
do what governments have not
been able to for decades. The two
United Methodist "sister" churches
have brought their people together L
in love and harmony.
Last week the Cuban minister,
Pastor Diego Reyes Perez, visited
Greensboro and the United States
for the first time as one of his stops
on a four-week stay in America.
He was greeted by two members
of Greensboro United Methodist,
Sonnie Green and Marianne
Scholer. Both have visited the
church (Tabernacle of the
Encounter with God) in Horquitos. Pastor Diego Reye
"They pray for us and we pray for Campos.
them," Scholer said.

But they do a little more than s
pray. When Pastor Reyes Perez G
goes back home next week, he will
S- be taking a suitcase full of a
L 'medicine and other supplies c
needed by his members. Green o
said in the past she and Scholer c
f CHI have taken clothing, reading s
glasses, school supplies, and t
medicine. He will also have a p
nebulizer for his nine-month-old c
son who was born with a breathing b
problem. T
"We take what we can carry a
when we have gone to visit. We p
leave with bulging suitcases. When is
we return, we literally have only c
the clothes on our backs," Scholer
said, of their trips to Horquitos, v
about a four hour drive from the l
capital of Havana. This time the
church will receive a special gift E
Perez with Sonnie Green and translator Juan from the Greensboro church. They U
are donating Paraments or n

support them financially as well,"
Green said
Horquitos is an agricultural
rea. "We grow potatoes, bananas,
om, tomatoes, rice and a few
other things, but those are the main
rops," said Reyes Perez, who
peaks no English, through local
translator Juan Campos. They are a
oor country, located in south
central Cuba, best reached by train
because the roads are in disrepair.
The country is promoting tourism
s a way out of its financial
problems, so the best of everything
s usually reserved for hotels that
ater to the tourist trade.
"They are poor, but they are a
ery spiritual people and a very
moving people," Green said.
Pastor Reyes Perez delivered the
Easter message at Greensboro
United Methodist Church Sunday
morning. His message, he said,
would be a traditional one, about


the resurrection of Christ. One
difference, he said, is that people in
his country do not dress up for
Easter, nor do they hunt eggs.
Some of the things we take for
granted as everyday items have
fascinated him. Things like sliding
glass doors at stores and touch lights.
'"He has never seen these things
before, it's a new experience, "
Campos said.
Pastor Reyes 'Perez has also
taken a liking to American
cooking. "He has put on 10 pounds
since he's been here and I have put
on four just being with him," joked
Campos. When Pastor Reyes Perez
leaves this country to go back
home, he will take with him more
than objects and medicines to help
his congregation. "I will take
back memories of all of the lovely
people I have met here," he said.


Text amendment bogs down with P and Z board


By BYRON SPIRES
Times Staff Writer


An .


* administrative


comprehensive plan text
amendment ran aground in the
Gadsden County Planning and
Zoning Board meeting last week.
The amendments centered
around a change that would allow
mixed uses for property...more that
one type of development on a
piece of property such as ah
apartment complex and single
family homes in a subdivision.
The board was not satisfied
with Growth and Management
Director Bill McCord's
explanation of the issue and tabled
it until a workshop is held.
Ironically a workshop on the
issue has already occurred,
however only one board member,
Larry Ganus attended the meeting.
The amendment would change
some of the wording in the Comp
plan and tighten some of the
problem areas, McCord said.
The "Mixed Use" changes,
centered around making the comp
plan encourage development of
urban service areas.
One of the problems that
continues to crop up in almost all
of the requests for subdivisions in
the county has been the use of
septic tanks and single wells. The


Planning board
members
discussed nine
issues at last
Thursday's
meeting.

changes, McCord said, would
make it beneficial for developers to
build in areas where infrastructure
is already available.
To encourage development in
urban service areas (where
infrastructure is or could be
available) would be a "mixed use"
category, which would allow
property with sewage and water to
have multiple uses.
His plans would include the MU
designation to allow apartments,
single family units and commercial
uses on the same property. The
density of the single family lots
would change and apartments
could be allowed up to 12 per acre.
One such request was next in
line for the boards approval. The
River Oak Plantation is planned
around the mixed use of 823 acres
located east of Quincy on US 90.
The property is on the north side of
US 90 just west of Little River.


Because the text amendment was
tabled, no action could be taken on
River Oak so it also was tabled.
McCord did say that he
intended to bring the issue before
the county commissioners at its
May 2 meeting. The P and Z board
acts as an advisory board only. All
final decisions are made by the
county commission.
In other business:
*The board approved
conceptual/preliminary site plans
on two community parks.
Robertsville Community Park
located on Uptain Road and St.
John Community Park located on
Hutcheson Ferry Road.
*Approved the conceptual plat
review for Rolling Greens Paradise
Subdivision located on Cochran
Road (between Greensboro and
Hardaway). The approval allows
four single family units on the 84
acre parcel.

Leon and Gadsden Counties Have a New
"Powerful Place"
for Children and Families

Friends of Children, a statewide faith based agency, is now offering culturally competent
behavioral health services from its new office in Tallahassee

Tallahassee (Thursday, April 13, 2006) -

In the beginning, it seemed like another story of a young Black kid gone bad. A 13 year
old young black male with disruptive behaviors in school, disrespectful behaviors at home,
and delinquent behaviors in his community was eventually arrested. Once arrested, he
faced all of the negative trends that so many Black youth have experienced across the
nation. He could have been yet another young Black inmate in the local detention center.
Or maybe he would just get frustrated with life, give up on school, ignore his mother's direc-
tions, and end up with a future plagued by chronic unemployment, drug use, homelessness,
and prison.

The good news is that this young man was saved. Instead of sending him for further crim-
inal justice processing, a social services worker sent the youth to Friends of Children, Inc.
Friends of Children, Inc. is a nationally accredited faith based human services agency that
recently began providing behavioral health services in Leon and Gadsden counties.
"Before going to Friends of Children, I couldn't control his behaviors, he was constantly
getting suspended, and just acting bad", states the boy's mother. "Now, he is listening to
my directives, doing school work, has changed his attitude a lot, and he looks forward to
seeing his counselor".

According the U.S. Surgeon General's 1999 Report on Mental Health, 1 out of 5 children
An estimated 21 percent of young people in the United States between ages 9 and 17, about
15 million children, have diagnosable emotional or behavioral health disorders, but less
than a third get help for these problems. Children and families of color do not get the help
they need oftentimes because of negative stigma associated with counseling, lack of access
to services, and the inability of many service providers to deliver services in a manner that
is compatible with children and families of color. Friends of Children tries to combat these
trends with an aggressive campaign to partner with schools and other agencies to identify
children in need, by providing services where children and families are (including in
schools and homes), and by using service models that have proven effectiveness with chil-
dren and families of color.

"Our focus is to work with children and families to improve their communities and their
lives", says Willie Myles, Founder and President. "We find that people heal themselves
much quicker when they believe in a higher source of power. In an era when young black
males are more likely to die violently than other segments of the population; when the social
parameters for black youth appear circumscribed by a cycle of crime Friends of Children
bands together with churches and civic organizations to present positive alternatives".

Friends of Children, Inc. recently celebrated its 14th year of providing services to thousands
of troubled children and families in Broward County, Florida where it is headquartered.
The agency recently opened an office in Tallahassee to reach out to children and families
in Leon and Gadsden counties. "Although we have experienced success in serving persons
from diverse ethnic backgrounds, we've earned the reputation of being an agency that has
worked better with children and families of color", states Brian C. Johnson, the agency's
Chief Development Officer.

Both the agency's vision and mission statements highlight a focus on being spiritually guid-
ed, culturally competent, and professionally sound. Thomas Walker, Chief Operations
Officer insists that the agency is sincere in its quest. "To us, faith based and cultural com-
petence are not just buzz words it's who we are", Walker states.

Friends of Children, Inc. will be hosting a grand opening of its Tallahassee office on
Thursday, April 27th. According to Mr. Myles, "the purpose of the event is to provide a for-
mal introduction of the agency to the community, and to provide an opportunity for other
advocates for troubled children and families to collectively express a commitment towards
working together to ensure that all youth get the help they need".

In Broward County we operate foster homes for adolescent males and females. We believe
that children in foster care deserve that same level of quality that we want for our children.
Additionally we operate family preservation programs that keep families out of the child
welfare system, CINS/FINS programs to keep children out of the juvenile justice system,
and counseling programs to keep youth in school and with their families.

If you know of a child who is ungovernable, gets suspended repeatedly, or who is not doing
well in school, please contact our Jeanne' Freeman, MPA, District Two Administrator office
or Alma Bradley, BS, Administrative Assistant at (850)894-3700.

For more information, please contact Jeanne Freeman, District Two Site Administrator at

Law speaks at Chamber forum


by BYRON SPIRES
Times Staff Writer

"TCC has a great
presence here," Gadsden
County Chamber of
Commerce executive
director David Gardner said
as he introduced Tallahassee
Community College
president Dr. Bill Law. Law
was the speaker at this
month's community forum
sponsored by the Chamber.
Under the tutelage of
Law, Gardner was quick to
add, a lot of good things
were happening between
Gadsden County and TCC.
"I'm incredibly proud to
be a part of TCC," Law
said.
TCC and the school's board
of trustees have embarked
on a program to bring many
workforce related curricula
to 6he schqol,...
Law sadkl-he--was
committed to helping
Gadsden County. One of his
goals has been to see that
every high school senior
who wanted to extend his
education be given that
opportunity.
"A.great school," Law
said, "is a school that
changes." Those changes
for TCC include programs
that teach carpentry,
plumbing and electrical
skills.
Florida Rebuilds, a
program that TCC is
currently involved with,
helps train trades people.
"Right now there is a zero
percent unemployment rate
in construction," Law said.
"This is a way that TCC
can help get people working
in Gadsden County."
The health industry is
another area that he said
was changing.
Eighty-five percent of
the jobs in the health field
require less that a bachelor
degree."'
As an example he used a
car accident victim. The
police officer that
responded to the accident
could be a TCC graduate.
The EMT, the assistant at
the emergency room and a
host of other people


someone might come into
contact with could be TCC
graduates because of the .
variety of programs offered.
Academics are an
important part of the
school's goals, and the
sooner they can involve
students the better. This
year more Gadsden County
students are dual enrolled
than any year in the past,
according to Law.
TCC Quincy House
offered help after school for
students in preparation for
the FCAT test. Other after
school computer classes and
programs are offered as
well.
Adults classes are also
offered at TCC House that
include computer basics and
help with GED studies. TCC
started a summer program
last year, Law said, in '"
partnership with the
Gadsden County School
system and the Quincy
Recreation Department.
That program gave 200
children an opportunity to
learn computer skills and
take Spanish classes.
Gadsden County school
superintendent Reginald
James said the relationship
the school and TCC had was
a "fantastic partnership". He
said that TCC and the
school system were moving
in the same direction to help
every child be successful.
Many of those students,
Law said, were back for the
after school programs.
That program will be
expanded next summer to
include Havana,
Chattahoochee and possibly
Midway.
Law's concerns don't
stop with just education. His
game plan is to help
Gadsden County develop a
trainable workforce to help
bring in new. industry. It is
through partnerships that
TCC excels. Their
organizational skills and
connections work well
together with organizations.
"We have our grant
writer," who Law said has
been successful in getting
grants for a number of
programs.


It is through TCC
connections and networking
capability that many local
projects have received
funding.
Gadsden Learns is a local
project that Law said has
made a difference in the
lives of students in Gadsden
County.
The program gave ten
TCC scholarships to local
residents last year.
Jim Rogers, chairman of
Gadsden Learns, said that
the goal of the organization
is "that any child who wants
to go on to college, can."
So far the organization has
raised over $200,000 to help
fund its scholarships. As an
added bonus, every dollar
that is donated to Gadsden
Learns is matched by state
funds, Rogers said.
,- ,.N6o disciussi6n about TCC''-'-
would be complete in ....
Gadsden'County Without an
update qf the Pat Thomas
Law Enforcement
Academy.
"Pat Thomas is
booming," Law said,
adding, "We are very, very
proud of the academy."
PTLEA now handles
training for 14 state
,agencies and as many local
agencies, Law said.
Recently programs for the
Department of Juvenile
Justice and The Department
of Corrections were added.
The new Florida
Highway Patrol Academy is
now at the location.
A residential hall is
complete and already full,
Law said.
Future plans include
another residential hall and
more class rooms. A large
tactical program for the
academy is in the future as
well.
Law said that the
academy works very hard to
keep the money is spends
local. "We work very hard
to keep those dollars in
Gadsden County," Law
said.
"We're going to stay at
it," Law said about the
commitment he and TCC
have for Gadsden County.

Editor's note: This
announcement was submitted
and intended for last week's
issue. We apologize for the
omission.
I am officially announcing
my candidacy for Gadsden
County Commissioner, District
4. For more than thirty-six (36)
years, I have served the
Gadsden County community as
an educator, cattle rancher,
'health care service provider,
clerk of precinct five and
admission administrator for the
Florida Department of
Revenue (Big Bend Jai-Ali). I
thank this community for the
opportunity to serve in each
capacity.
My sincere interest to serve
as your County Commissioner,
District 4 is because of my
deep concern for the growth of
Gadsden County and to ensure
that my neighbors have a
"voice of reason" in county
government. For twelve (12)
years, I served on the Gadsden
County Planning and Zoning
Board. Currently, I'm serving
a second term as Chairperson
of the Planning and Zoning
Board. This gives me first-
hand knowledge and "real
experience" to make decisions
about economic development
and growth, as well as making
recommendations to the Board
of Gadsden County
Comissions.
My years of working
closely with the Gadsden
County Commissioners have
connected me with the
demanding issues and concerns
of this county, especially the
citizens of District 4.
Therefore, my goals as County
Commissioner, District 4 are
as follows: improve the
economic growth of Gadsden
County by bringing job
opportunities to the residents;
provide financial stability by
making sure monies are spent
responsibly. Waste of
taxpayers dollars and grant
funding will not be
acceptable!; improve county
employees' salaries and
benefits, and maintain a stable
emergency and health, care
facility in our county.
The exerpience and
leadership I have acquired in
fiscal management, health care
service, business ownership,
farming and education are
equal..- to my- .training ..as a
gradlua e of Floria. AA&M
,Uni\er &jt. witha lBachelm0s ;
Degree in. Nursing and a
Masters Degree in Counseling
Education. I'm certified by the
Florida Department of
Education in Supervision and
Administration and the U.S.
Department of Housing: Urban
Development: Although I'm
employed with the Gadsden
School Board as a middle
school guidance counselor, my
experience with community
development is broad. I serve
as a member of the Florida
Advisory Council for Florida


Baptist in Quincy, where I
serve as Financial Secretary,
Vice-Chairperson of the
Trustee Board, Usher Board
and member of the Ora
McDonald Missionary Society.
Your vote for me, Jeanne
"Dora" Gunn, is a vote for one
who will be "The Voice of
Reason." My pledge to District
4 and this county is one of
integrity and honesty. Your
vote is highly appreciated!
Please make campaign
donations to the Gunn
Campaign Fund, P.O. Box
1314, Quincy, Florida 32353.
Remember, you have only one
vote...make it count, Tuesday,
September 5, 2006.

GCSO supports American

Cancer Society's Relay For Life
Sheriff Morris Young said he plans to raise thousands of dollars this year to help the American Cancer
Society's Relay For Life. This Thursday and Friday, April 20 and 21, the sheriff and deputies will hold
a boot drive at the intersections of Duval and East Jefferson Streets and Jefferson and Adams Streets
between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. Friday from 12 noon to 8 p.m. the GCSO will be selling barbecue chicken
and rib dinners with cole slaw and baked beans at the Carter-Parramore Middle School athletic field.
Young said the Relay is extremely important since he has five employees who are cancer survivors.

PINIONS


There are only a few days left before people in
certain areas in the cities of Quincy,
Chattahoochee, and Gretna will have the
opportunity to select new city leaders or keep the
current ones. Unfortunately, a lot of citizens will
not vote.
They will not have time or they will be busy
'doing something much more important. The
truth is, there is little more important than to
decide who will make the decisions that will
affect your day-to-day life for the next two years.
Some folk take great (and ignorant) pride in
saying things like "I don't bother with these little


elections, I only vote in the important ones for
President and Governor." Guess what? Decisions
made at the state and national level affect you far
less than decisions made right here in your own
city halls once or twice a month.
I remember once when I was out campaigning
in the later 1970s for former President Jimmy
Carter. One night I spoke to a group of people at
a Fort Pierce community center asking them to
vote for Carter. When I finished my little
campaign speech, I asked for questions. I has
studied my talking points and was ready with
answers about Carter's stance on the Middle


East, off shore drilling, and other hot national
topics of the day.
Then, as if someone had dropped a stink bomb
in the room, came one of the questions that
national campaigners least want to hear.
"All I want to know is when Jimmy Carter is
going to pave my street," said one man in the
back of the room. I patiently tried to explain to
him that the question was better suited for his
representative on the city council. Needless to
say, he didn't want to hear my explanation or
"my excuses" as he called them. I guess that's
one vote I didn't get that night.
The elections will be held on April 25, but early
voting started Monday at the Supervisor of
Elections Office on South Madison Street. The
office is open Monday through Saturday for
voting. If you can't make it to the polls in April
25, plan to vote early.
People cannot afford not to vote. Too many
people have suffered and died so that everyone
can enjoy the right to vote. It is not something to
be taken lightly or for granted. There was. a time
when women and blacks were not given the right
to vote and, in the scheme of things, it wasn't
that long ago. Your vote is something you should
cherish.
There are those who would not have you vote


because when you stay home and don't voice
your opinion by casting your vote, you are
saying that whatever happens is all right with
you.
Even if the candidate you support is not the
winner, your vote sends a message to the winner,
that there are citizens who are taking note of his
actions. There is also an obligation that comes
with voting. That obligation is to be an informed
voter. Make sure that the person you vote for
will be, in your opinion, good for the entire city.
Ask yourself a few questions before your make
a decision. Only you can decide who you want to
vote for, minus the campaign rhetoric.
Is this person representative of me and my
values?
Is this person trustworthy and honest?
Is this person a leader with conviction?
Is this person good for my city or town?'
Will this person help lead and not hinder?
Will this person be fair to a citizens?
Make it your business to check out each
candidate before you make a decision that will
affect you in ways you may not even imagine for
the next two years.
Remember, it's too late to shut the door when
the horse is out of the barn.


It can be easy, with all of the "happenings" in
Gadsden County, to get confused about what is
really going on.
I have found that to be true, especially when it
comes to growth.
Now let me say from the beginning I am not an
expert in either field, but I don't mind doing a little
research to understand the issue a little better.
Yes, I know I have written about that subject
several times. However, I have found some very
interesting statistics that I want to share with you.
The first and most important one is that,
according to Florida Trend magazine, Gadsden
County is reaping the least percentage of growth of
any Florida County from those moving into the
state.
Gadsden County taps about .16 percent of the
states total growth.
This little analogy may put that percentage in
perspective: If one hundred percent were a dollar,
Gadsden County's growth would be equal to less
than one-fifth of a penny of the state'.s total
growth.
In layman's terms that is about 91 people a year
of those moving into the state.
Well then, you may ask, what about all of this
development and growth?
In order to better understand growth let's look
at what is going on in Florida.
According to Florida Trend, Florida is growing
now at about 1060 people a day. In order to get to
that figure you need to understand how that
number is determined. Actually about 1890 people
a day are moving into the state, but at the same
time Florida is losing 945 people. Factor in the
births minus the deaths and you get another 115
people a day which equals the 1060 figure of
growth per day I just mentioned.
With that in mind I'm going to give you a little
history lesson.
Gadsden County has changed a lot in my.
lifetime. We see the new homes popping up all
over the place, but what many have forgotten it
seems is the thousands of tenant houses that were
once scattered throughout the county.
Many of us are descendants of families that
moved here during the heyday of tobacco and
lived in those homes. You would be hard pressed


now to find even an inkling of those homes.
Instead, you will find some of our newer homes
and a host of mobile homes.
A good example of that would be the "Farms at
Quincy", a once-thriving tobacco farm, now a
prized Gadsden County community.
There is another, often overlooked factor as
well.
Over the years, we have lost many of our
residents. As many of our seniors graduate high
school they have moved away from Gadsden
County to make their mark in the world
somewhere else. There are a lot of reasons for that,
but that is another column for a future paper.
Sadly, a considerable number of our residents have
passed away. That becomes more and more
apparent each week as I read the obituaries.
So what does all of this mean?
I'm no statistician by any stretch of the
imagination. But, here are my thoughts on what is
happening.
In order to show a net growth in population we
need a number of people to move into the county
every year.
We have about 300 high school seniors
graduating in the two county and two private
schools this year. How many will continue to stay
in the county is a guessing game at the best, but a
conservative number would be somewhere in the
30-40 percent bracket (I believe it to be much
less).
So we lose about 120 or so high school seniors
a year. Now let's add the number of births (about
735 according to the GCHD) minus the number of
deaths (about 500 according to the Fla. Dept. of
Health statistics) to the loss of high school seniors
bringing the number to a net increase of about 120
people annually.
We are not through, however.
There are, I'm afraid to say, a couple of
unknowns in this equation. I cannot find the
number of people that actually move away from
the county each year for other reasons. It could be
anywhere from 50 to 500 or more.
For the state, the figure of those moving out is
nearly half as many as there are moving in.
Conservatively we can say at least 120-150 people
leave for other reasons. That brings us to a break


even point or maybe a slight loss in population in
this equation. In other words, the county is barely
breaking even population-wise if you take out the
small amount of growth now coming-our way.
So, what about growth?
I called the county property appraiser, Clay
VanLandingham, and got this information.
In 2005, 159 homes claimed new homestead
exemption countywide.
As an added note, the national average for
people per home is about 2.5. That would account
for about 397 people.
Then I went back to the state's estimated
population figures.
Let's look at the population changes for
Gadsden County. The estimated population for the
county in 2005 was 46,965, in 2004 it was 46,607.
A little math and you have a population increase of
about 358 people (a number close to the national
average, by the way).
To put that in perspective, in 2001 the
population was 45,373 or a net increase in
population of about 1600 people over the four year
period; an average of 400 a year in net population
increases. Again these are estimates, but they are
falling within a 10-15 percent margin when you
crunch the numbers compared to what is actually
going on in Gadsden County.
Now understand that many of these numbers
are calculated guesses, but are pretty close to what
I see happening in the county.
The 350 to 400 annual increase in Gadsden
County's population falls into almost every
projection I've seen concerning growth associated
with this county.
That number is less than a one percent growth

rate for the county. -
Compared to the double digit numbers of some
Florida counties, Gadsden County is not even in
the running.
Of that growth a large portion is moving here
from Leon County with the remaining new people
coming from Florida residents moving north.
Now before you start using the usual "statistics
can be used to say anything", let me say that this is
what I feel is happening in Gadsden County. I
would like you to do some fact finding and prove
me right or if you feel the need, wrong.
We still have some loose numbers out there as
well.
Our Hispanic population has continued to
grow in appearance, but not in reportable numbers.
It is suspected that a fairly large number of mobile
homes have not been accounted for, which could
skew the numbers some as well.
Will growth in this county stay at the less than
one percent rate or will it jump to a two percent
growth rate or even more?
Let's see.
According to Vanlandingham, his office has
already processed 183 homestead exemptions so
far this year with Midway accounting for a large
percentage of those.
Gadsden County is and will continue to change.
Much of that change will come in the next five to
ten years as the county's assets become better
known.
There are a lot of factors that will determine the
future of this county, but one thing is certain.
Like last week's closing of Chandler's
Hamburgers, nothing stays the same.

Shirley Ann Rogers
Boring

Shirley Ann Rogers Boring, 62,
died Monday, April 17, 2006.
Funeral services are at 10 a.m.
Friday, April 21 at Fellowship
Assembly of God Church in
Greensboro, and burial at Pine
Grove Cemetery. Visitation will
be from 5-7 p.m. Thursday, April
20 at Charles McClellan Funeral
Home who is in charge of
arrangements.
Shirley Ann Boring was born on
September 1, 1943 in Quincy.
She was the only child of
Reginald Walter and Ellie P.
Rogers. Shirley moved to Miami
when she was three weeks old. In
1961, she graduated from Miami
Sr. High School. She married her
soul mate and best friend, Alan,
on May 4, 1962. Their union was
subsequently blessed with two
sons, and she was so very proud
of both of them. She admirably
worked at the Federal Reserve
Bank in Miami for 17 years.
Shirley was also a member of
Gladeview Baptist Church in
Miami. Ten years ago, she and
her husband retired and moved to
Covington, Georgia, so they
could be closer to their children
and grandchildren. She loved to
be with their grandchildren and to
watch them play sports, rarely
ever missing a game. Besides
cooking, baking and shopping,
she also enjoyed Bunko,
crossword puzzles, jigsaw
puzzles and family gatherings.
Shirley will always be
remembered for her infectious
smile and contagious laugh. She
enjoyed good humor and could
always be counted on for a good
laugh. She will be sorely missed
by those left behind, as she
unexpectedly went home to be
with her heavenly Father.
She is survived by her loving
mother, Miss Ellie P. Williams
(Rogers) and her loving husband
,of 43 years, Mr. Alan Randall
Boring; two loving sons and
daughters-in-law, Derreck W.
Boring and his wife Annette of
Eglin AFB and Daren F. Boring

Moriah Boring, Naomi Boring,
Joel Davis, Brittany Davis,
Matthew. Boring and Alexis

Chattahoochee.
A memorial service for her
family and friends in Georgia will
be held on Tuesday, April 18 at 6
p.m. at Community Bible Church,
2000 Jodece Road, Stockbridge,
GA 30281. In Florida, the family

be to target the communities and
populations with high numbers of
uninsured children that are not
enrolled in the program."
According to an analysis of
Healthy Kids enrollment data and
the latest University of Florida
Health Insurance Study, the
program could improve
enrollment by reaching out to
African-Americans, parents with
children between the ages of five
and eight, parents who are self-
employed and families in the
Panhandle and Tampa Bay area.
Since February, Healthy Kids
has developed partnerships with
child-centered community groups
- both statewide and in the target
communities to "bundle" the
program with other products that


families seek. To date, the public'

In addition, Healthy Kids staff
added an online enrollment
process allowing families to

Walkin' in the shoes of the blind

by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
Fourth graders at George W. Munroe got a wake up call Tuesday morning. They literally had the
opportunity to walk in the shoes of people with physical challenges for a short time.
Blindfolded, some students were led by others so they could see what it feels like to be dependent on
others for everyday things. Each student was given a sheet of paper with braille characters so that they
could better understand what a person without sight might encounter in an ordinary day.
The students were selected to participate in the unique program offered through the Florida Human
Relations Commission. "This is fair housing month and we're bringing attention to show the many ways
that individuals are discriminated against in Florida despite the fact that the ordinance was enacted 38
years ago," said Regina Owens.
Activities are planned throughout the area this month in several counties that include visiting schools, a
poster contest, and role reversal. "We're trying to promote understanding. If people aren't in contact with
those who are different they may. not know how to react," said Linda Mathis, who has been visually
impaired since birth.
She told the students how she and her husband, who is also bliqd, have been asked to leave restaurants
because they both have seeing-eye dogs. "Once, in North Carolina, I had to eat outside with my dog, even
after I told them that he was a working dog," she said.
Most. experiences are not that traumatic. As an investigator for the Human Relations Commission
Mathis finds most discrimination is in employment.
Michael Keys said he has an aunt who is visually impaired, so Tuesday morning's exercise was not a
surprise to him. Marcelo Torres has a 10-year-old friend who is blind. Both said they were aware of the
special needs of the blind because of the past interaction.
"It is wrong to make fun of anyone with a disability, or because of their language and the way they talk,"
Torres said.
Raquel Brown-Archer said the aim is to educate people on the lives of those with disabilities. "We feel
that there would be more of an impact with elementary school students, but we are not limiting our focus.
This month we have also visited FAMU, FSU and TCC to bring our message. We also have programs for
schools in Gadsden, Leon and Wakulla counties," she said.
The students in Sarah Graham's class will also participate in a poster contest.,


21st Century GREAT Center

The 21st Century GREAT Center at West Gadsden High School attended an FSU women's softball game
on Saturday, April 1. This outing was a stress reliever that benefited the mental health of the participants.
After the softball game students ate lunch and enjoyed the outdoor beauty as they walked around Lake Ella.

Elizabeth Bridges and Marcus Edwards

Soil and Water Speaking Contest
held Monday, April 10.
There were four other
contestants, including three from
Robert F. Munroe: Ashton Fallis,
who took second place, along
with Dee Dee Munroe and Clay
White.
Elizabeth was awarded the first
place prize of $100 when named
winner. She is the daughter of

Bill Bridges of Quincy.


Ashton is the daughter of Sandy

Their speeches concerned the
question of water quality for the

Elizabeth's main point in the
speech was to discuss and
encourage protection of our water
resources in Gadsden County and
especially the Apalachicola River
in north Florida.

FOR CITY COMMISSION, DISTRICT 3


Li .I


. -. 'p


Dear District 3:
Thank you for allowing me to come into your home and discuss your likes and dislikes about issues
affecting the city and about me, personally. I appreciated hearing the truth whether it was good or bad; I do
thank you for that. Now, for those I may not have given the chance to voice your concerns to me face-to-face,
I apologize. If I said or did something to offend you qr your family, I am sorry. Please forgive me. When our
Lord and savior was nailed to the cross, he asked his father to forgive us. Since then, that has served as an
example to all of us. I admit that I'Ve made a lot of mistakes in the past. However, I truly believe that I have
learned from them. I ask for only two things from you, the voter. The first is this-you have received literature
from the candidates and their visions for this city please consider them carefully. The second is this-I ask
that you pray about your decision before you vote and ask almighty God to lead you in your decisionmaking.
May God's will be done, and I know within my heart it will be. Our City is in a financial mess and it has
nothing to do with being HUMBLE, LAW-ABIDING, CHRISTIAN, PEOPLE FRIENDLY ... and so on. It does
have to do with being EFFECTIVE, being a TEAM PLAYER, being FAIR, being a HARD WORKER, and being
about "STRICTLY BUSINESS." The City of Quincy is in the shape that it's in (BROKE) because some folks
have been trying to do the right thing, but not enough folks have been trying to do the right thing. I want to be
one in the number trying to do the right thing. One voter I met asked me what could I do different that the
current commissioner is not doing? My answer to him was that THE SALARY I STARTED IN 1998 WILL BE
GIVEN BACK TO YOU, THE CITIZENS OF QUINCY. I want to lead by example. That is my commitment to
you, the Voters of District Three.

County gets $3.17M in state road funds


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor


The Florida Department of
Transportation this week notified
the Gadsden County Road and
Bridge Department that $3.17
million dollars in grant funds
have been approved for the
county.
"Every bit will be used for
paving and resurfacing, not
engineers. We do all of our own


in-house," said Robert Presnell,
Public Works director.
The projects funded in the
2006-2007 cycle include Lanier
Road for $844,670; Juniper Road
for $668,263; Atwater Road for
$245,273; and Old Federal Road
for $1.35 million.
Presnell said Lanier Road, in
District 1 just off U.S. Highway
90 near Lake Yvette, was never
really paved. "We used what we
call a cold mix asphalt. It only
has a life span of about five years.


This time it will be paving with
everything that goes with it, hot
tar and all," he said.
Juniper Road, which is 30 years
old is past due for paving.
Presnell said that a stretch of the
road, about three or four miles, is
in such bad shape that it has
become a priority. Juniper Road
is in District 3.
In Districts 3 and 4, Atwater
Road will also get a complete
resurfacing, and Old Federal
Road ( in District 5) from High


Bridge Road west to Cane Creek
Road will be resurfaced. "We
started this project last year, this
is the second part," he said.
Funds for the projects will be
released July 1 of this year.
"These projects, along with our
current and proposed grant
projects will be beneficial to
improving the transportation
system in the county. This is a
great thing for the county. We
would not be where we are
without these outside funding


opportunities. It has allowed us to
put a lot of asphalt down," he
said. Presnell said the county will
continue to seek funding for more
road projects.
State Road 65 from Quincy to
the Georgia line and Highway 12
from Havana to the Leon County
line are currently being
resurfaced, courtesy of a $1.2
million dollar grant from the
FDOT.

Bassin'


County hosts tournament at Lake Talquin


by ALICE DUPONT
Times Editor

By 4 p.m. the sun. was still hot and anglers
participating in the 28th Annual Open Bass
*Tournament were headed to the banks to weigh in their
catch of the day. Thirty-five teams of two left the banks
;of Lake Talquin at sumise in search of the biggest bass
in the lake.
'The conditions were perfect," said Curtis Carter, a
,member of the Quincy Bassmasters. The organization,
along with the the Talquin Hookers, sponsored the
tournament. For the first time, Gadsden County
government became involved in the event.
Commissioner Brenda Holt, who was on hand to help
hand out trophies, said,. "This is my first tournament
*and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I'll be back next year."
The rules are simple. Bring in the largest bass and you
win money. Bring in the largest five bass and you win
money.
Temperatures that hovered around 90 degrees and an
unrelenting sun didn't deter any of the anglers. Fred
Jones of Tallahassee, waiting to weigh his catch, said
he had been coming to the tournament for the past 20
years.
"It's a good event and I enjoy fishing the lake," Jones
said. John Cofty, Jr. of Bainbridge, GA is in his fifth
year of participation. At the end of the day Cofty's 7.06
pounder was enough to win him second place in the
largest bass category and $500.


Ricky Atkinson came in first with a 8.53-pounder that
he caught with a watermelon seed lizard.
Once the fish were weighed in, Charlie Mesing and
his crew from the Florida Fish & Wildlife Conservation
Commission took over. "We're using a wand to go
over each fish to see if they have been tagged," he said.
A tagged fish has been implanted with a tiny microchip
that will emit a sound when the wand passes over the
bass.
"The fish that Atkinson caught was a tagged fish
which lets us know that the fish came from the state's
fish hatchery and was placed in this lake five years
ago," Carter said, adding, "he's gotten that big in five
years. Let's hope he'll be twice as big in the next five
years." The tournament provides an opportunity for
FWCC to check on the progress of hatchery fish.
But it was veteran Eric Wills of Tallahassee who
walked off with the big prize money for his 20.08
pounds of fish. For his catch, Wills won the $1,000
tournament top prize, and $500 from the Bass Anglers
organization as well as a large trophy.
Sarah Johnson and the members of the Talquin
Hookers began registering participants Friday
afternoon. "Without the ladies none of this would have
been possible," Carter said. The women have been
helping their counterparts since the inception of the
tournament.

Immigrants

Continued from Page 1
The diversity visa lottery
which allows 50,000 immigrants
each year from countries around
the world would be eliminated.
The 8.4 million employers
would be required to contact a
verification system by phone or
internet to assure social security
numbers were correct.
The DHS will provide a
comprehensive plan on a
systematic surveillance of the
borders of the United States.
There are many parts of the bill
that are aimed at employers of
undocumented immigrants that
affect pay and what they can
deduct as payroll charges.
The bill does not have a "Guest
Worker" provision which was
promoted by President Bush. The
provision would allow alien
workers a three year window of
opportunity to become legal
citizens or move back to the
country of origin.
The US Senate is currently on
an Easter break and will not be
back until April 24. The Senate
had developed a nonpartisan
compromise bill in March, but
failed to gain enough support at
the last minute to pass the issue
in early April.
Senators John McCain and Ted
Kennedy are co-sponsoring a bill
as another compromise. The
McCain/Kennedy bill would
establish a guest worker program
with a path to permanent
residence status and citizenship.
It calls for undocumented
immigrants to pay a $2000 fine,
clear a background check, pass
an English exam and pay any
back taxes if applicable, the US
would also issue three-year visas
to at least 400,000 foreign
workers each year. The act would
increase fines for those
employers who hire
undocumented immigrants. It
would also increase border
patrols and control.
How the Senate reacts to the
issue will determine if a bill can
be hammered out that will get the
support of both the Senate and
the House of Representatives.
If not, the immigration reform
bill will probably go back to a
joint committee of both the
House and Senate.
At best, the process will take
several months, and
implementation of the final bill
will take six months to a year to
complete.
Next week we will look at the
economic impact migrant and
undocumented workers have on
Gadsden County and the possible
effects should the bill pass.

Communications

Continued from Page 1
art tracking system. When a call
comes in, a light will show
exactly where the call is coming
from. "This will definitely help
with our calls on the interstate,"
Young said. The tracking will be
just as beneficial for local
residents. "You get a person
calling 911 and their loved one is


lying there in a pool of blood,
they may be so upset, they
probably will forget their own
address," he said.
With the new system, while the
dispatcher is on the telephone
trying to keep the caller calm and
get as much information as
possible, emergency help could
already be on the way.
The system that will be used is
designed for public safety only.
The current system has three
stations, the new center will have
five stations for dispatchers and
one for a supervisor. This is some
of what the county will get from
the new system:
* New 911 system designed for
Gadsden County from the ground
up. Everything is new.


*A map system dedicated to
public safety viewer. The map
will provide automatic display
and management of calls,
incidents, responses, and
resources. The system will
provide enhanced support of
wireless E911 calls.
*A computer aided system that
provides complete resources and
incident management for single
and multi-agencies.
* Two multi-channel recorders
for Havana Police Department
and Chattahoochee Police
Department for the purpose of
recording radio and telephone
and will be compatible with the
existing system at the main
communication center.
* Two backup for 911 calls.

Former Iraq War POW

tells his story to a crowd of

spellbound Boy Scout supporters











Ronald Young speaks at Tuesday's Boy Scour
f1" 1 findraiser held at the Sawano Club in Quincy.


by BYRON SPIRES
Times Staff Writer


lie stands tall and suri at six fee-t tour..At 25 sears of age he
has aireadN lived a lifetime of experiences.
Ronald Young. himself an Eagle Scour, w\as the speaker at
the annual Boy, Scout fuidraiser. He did just that. to the tune
of s t5.4'_.:,.
I le held an audience of 15'; people spellbound as he talked
about his exploits during the first dals of the Iraq War back in

Ron. an Apache "Longbow" helicopter pilot with the Army's
ist Cav Dikision. w as shot dowii o\er Karbalah. Iraq on his
first combat mission. three daNs after the Iraq war began.
As he speaks to the crow d his voice is spread\ and sure, his,,
words are precise and his purpose is clear. He is a young man
that loves G(od. scouring and his coun!ru.
Ron tells of spending ';z da\ as an 1lraq prisoner of\ ar after
being shot dow n and how\ he survived the terrible ordeal.
Buint his story recall\ starts a long time before he climbed into
the front scar of his, helicopter on that fateful daN
Ron grew up in Lithia Springs. Georgia just \est of Atlanra.
He is the middle child of five siblings and the offspring of two
hard working parents that instilled values and beliefs in their
children that Ron will tcll you came in hand\ during those dark
hours of Lapri\tr.
His family are Mlormonis and his involhemncntwith the Bo\
Scouts came earl he said because thile church is hea'ill
involved in suppi -ring and providing B,\ Scout troops all
o\ er the county.
The Bo i Scouts and R.on fit together ell. I le enijos the
outdoors, hunting and camping. "I like being outdoors." Ron
said.
Ron pursued the highest honor offered by Bo\ Sc)urits Eagle
Scout. w hile still in high school. It \ as the natural progression
fir a ~ l ng man w ith the world ahead of him.
After high ichiool he spent three Cears at Southern Tech in
Mlarietta. Georgia. studying engineering. before meeting with
a Arm\ recruiter that got his attention.
This w ioud be his chance to tl\ not the F-14 jet he had
dreamed of as a oinung ibo. but instead one the Army's high
tech helic oprers.
I 1c made the decisi, in and si\,i miontlis later he was sitting in
his first trainer in Ft. Rucker. Alabania learning how\ to take off
and land.
It would take a little i\er three \cars of training and
assignmenits before the young .rm\ Warrant OMticer would
get the orders that sending him to war.
Ron said his grandfather u as a W\\orld War T1wo veterann and
his dad w as a \ ictnam \ctei an. \\lihen he i hund out that he.
rou. \\ as going tI w\ ar he knew this w would be his opportunity
to o inrinue thle famnii k's legacy.
His grandfather and hiis dad \i truld be the mark b\ \\ which lie
could mni.tsue himself.
Little did he know \what la\ ahead of him.
Tlie bullets \\ cc scr-anung right thri-ough the helicopter,.
Ron said as he talked about the da hlie \% as shot down.
When you knowyou are going down, Ron said,. oui have
some things you need to do.
"You make split second decisions that will affect the rest of
your life," Ron said.
The helicopter hit the ground in the middle of several
machine gun emnplacelments.


When asked just how bad it w\as, Ro n said that of IS
helicopters that left base that da\ e\ cn did not make it all the
way back.
.Armed with only handguns. for two and a half hours Ron and
hi-s parmer avoided capture.
"When the helicopter went down I went from a pilot to an
infanmman," Ron said.
Soon it became clear thc\ were not going to get out and the
pair surrendered.
Surrendering to someone that speaks a different language is
not an easy task, Ron said.
After a considerable amount of negotiating thie two were able
to get across to an Iraqi patrol the, wanted to surrender, but

not before one of the soldiers fired a round at point blank range
that miraculously missed both of them.
For Ron the next fewu hours became a surreal mesh of
experiences. At that point he said he did a lot of praying. His
prayer he s-aid w as that God \ ulid take the fear a\ ai firom
him.
Although he wvas a prisoner of % ar and unsure of his future,
or even if lie had a furure. Ron said one thing laid heal\ on hisl
mind. He wanted to be sure that his family knew that lie loved
them.
Another question he wanted answered \-as if this would be
\where he w would die or would he suni\ e the ordeal.
Over the next fetw da\s he would know the answer, he said.
Another prisoner w as. being asked if he believed in God and
\was responding that lie did not. As Ron listened to the
conversation he said that all of a sudden the fear began to leave
his body.
Later that same soldier would lha\e a epiphan\ of his o\\n,
Ron said.
()ver the time Ron \\as a PO\ lie \as moved from house to


house until, in Samiara. Marines rescued him and the other
captives.
He had lost 25 pounds during the ordeal and suffered from
dehydration. Ron spent a week in the hospital and then headed
back home.
About the experience Ron said, "Looking back it w as the best
experience I've had in mn life. I learned there w\ho I am."
Being a captive and surniing is one thing. Ron will tell you.
but ho\:w ou do it is to him the most important issue.
He passed the rest and met the mark his father and
Irandlfathr set before him.
If Ron's sror ended there it would be an exceptional tale, but
it doesn't.
He left the senice eight months after his POW ordeal only to
return recent\ to the Air National Guard stationed in
Dobbins Air Field in Marietta. Georgia.
He is continuing his education at the University Of Georgia.
Ron \ as a special connibutor for the Paula Zahn Show on
CNN where lie inteniewed the soldier who took Saddam
Hussein from the'spider hole". He still continues a
relationship with CNN.
He \was a participant on the TV show -Amazing Race".,
coming in third with his parmer, Miss South Carolina.
Todal he travels around the country speaking to groups
about his experiences.
Ron said that scouring has had a lot of influence in his life. He
thanks the organization and asked that people help them in any
w da the\ can.
Abo-ut the Iraq War he is quick to sa\ that America needs to
sa hankk \ou" to all of those overseas. They're doing a
difficult job." Ron said.

Each year on April 22nd, the world celebrates Earth Day. Known as the first international holiday, or event, Earth Day's
purpose is to celebrate the environment and spread awareness on how to protect it Created in the late 1960's, the event
began mainly on college campuses, though it was promoted by the US government. The original holiday was celebrated
on March 21st, the spring equinox, and is known as the Equinoctial Earth Day. This was symbolic because the earth was
believed to be in total harmony because both day and night all over the world was equal at that moment. Every year at this
same moment, the Peace Bell at the New York United Nations headquarters is rung. The Earth Day has its own symbol, a
green theta placed on a white background. (See the Kidbits article for a picture and more information on it!)
Earth Day is about conservation of the planet. Conservation of the planet is to carefully protect and plan out how we will
use the resources on the earth, as not to destroy or deplete them to extinction. There are many different types of conserva-
tion, as there are many different types of pollution. There is air conservation, animal conservation, land conservation, and
water conservation, all meant to help protect these resources from being polluted. It is important to make sure that we have
clean drinking water, pure land to grow healthy crops to eat, and to prevent the air that we breathe from becoming poisons.
Conservation is also about protecting the Earth's ecosystem. An ecosystem is when a complex community of organisms and the environment that they live in make up an
ecological unit. In other words, all living things on Earth are important to make the planet a safe and healthy place to live. For example, humans and many animals require
oxygen to breath in order to live and plants require carbon dioxide to live. Humans create carbon monoxide and plants create oxygen, an in turn we help create what each
other needs in order to live. Not only are people, plants, and animals help each other, all living things on the planet work together in ways like this to make the Earth work.
The conservation of this ecosystem is important to maintain an inhabitable environment, so that the Earth will be a clean place to live for millions of years.
There are many ways that you can help to celebrate Earth Day. Planting a tree is a great way to celebrate. Help clean up your school or neighborhood by picking up
trash. If it's ok with your parents, ride your bike to school to help reduce the amount of air pollution created from cars. And don't just help the environment out on Earth Day;
remember to help it out everyday of the year. The more you help it, the better place this world will be for everyone to live in itl! .

On April si, 72 V)Cd after his Whoii claSs ul 1934
received their high school diplomas, Elder Phillip Lee of
Midway walked down the corridor of a local hotel's
banquet hall in full academic regalia to receive his
honorary high school diploma. He smiled and waved to
family, friends and well wishers as he made his way
slowly down the aisle to the tune of "God of Our
Fathers". Phillip Lee, a lifelong Gadsden County native
turned 90 years old on March 30. He received phone calls
and greeting cards in the mail from his children and
grandchildren. However, nothing could have prepared

Richardson visits GEMS art classes RFM Anchor Club
RFM Anchor Club


Eluster Richardson, a local artist from Tallahassee, visited Gadsden
Elementary Magnet School on Feb. 1. The artist provided a wealth of
information about art materials, art supplies and skills utilized in an
artist job. Prior to Mr. Richardson coming to the school students
visited the Gadsden Art Center. They were overwhelmed at the
paintings displayed and painted by Mr. Richardson. They found out
that many of the paintings were of his family members and other local
residents and sceneries. Also, he demonstrated how to draw a portrait
by drawing various students. The students had a very educational
lesson in art.


"The more you read, the more you know"
By Robert Kenon and Shelby Williams

In- celebration of National Library Week, the Scholastic Book Fair
was held at James A. Shanks Middle School from March 29 through
April 5. The members of the weekly book club and the morning
broadcast team sponsored the event. We were in charge of advertising,
setting up the displays, waiting on customers, recording monies
collected, and using the cash register to figure sales tax and make
change.
JaMoyia Taylor commented about the great learning opportunity for
the workers. According to Shelby Williams, "It gave me a chance to
help others out!" Robert Kenon stated, "I felt responsible, being in the
sixth grade, helping out 7th and 8th grade students!"
The participating students were: 8th graders Brittany Eutsey, Jenai
Hicks, Blanca Maldonado, JaMoyia Taylor, Kiarah Turner, and Shelby
Williams; 7th grader Ebony Eutsay; and 6th graders Robert Kenon,
Amanda Kimble, and Stephon Lightfoot.

FSU's Alex

Boston visits

HMS, FCA

Florida State's defensive end
Alex Boston took time out of his
busy schedule to make a visit to
Havana Middle School. The visit
was facilitated by William Blitch.
Mr. Boston visited with the
Fellowship of Christian Athletes
(FCA), of which Mr. Blitch is the
sponsor. Mr. Boston shared his
testimony with the FCA group.
He spoke about the importance of
family support and community
support. His spoke about
accepting Christ in his life and
even having a positive attitude on
and off the field. Mr. Boston
stressed to the group about their
impact as leaders and about
setting a good example because
many other kids look up to
athletes. He stressed the
importance of good moral
character. Mr. Boston is a good
sport; he endured a little Miami
and FSU ribbing from the kids.
His reply was "Just watch the
field! Just look for me."

St. John Elementary School kindergarten registration


Do you have a child that's not in
school and will be five years old on
or before September 1, 2006? If so,
start the school year off right by
pre-registering your child for
kindergarten.
Registration for kindergarten
students will be held Friday, April
21 from 9 a.m. 2:30 p.m., at St.
John Elementary School. Please
report to room five in building one
to complete the registration forms.
It is not necessary to bring your
child to school for registration. It is
very important to pre-register all
new kindergarteners for .the 2006-
2007 school year. With our budget
crisis, it is vital that we know before
the end of the school term how


many students we will have in
kindergarten, so that we can
determine class sizes and the
appropriate number of teachers
needed.
The following items are required
at the time of registration for. all
children. A CERTIFIED BIRTH
CERTIFICATE Hospital copies
are not acceptable. If born in
Gadsden or Leon County, you may
obtain a birth certificate from the
Health Department; UPDATED
SHOT RECORDS (blue or yellow
card) Immunization card must
include Varicella vaccine. (Personal
shot records are not acceptable.); A
FLORIDA PHYSICAL The
Florida physical must be within the


2005 fiscal year when school
begins.
If you have any questions


concerning kindergarten
registration, please call the
Guidance Office at (850) 627-3442.
