Saying that the Gadsden Community

Life is good for

this 'once-illegal'

immigrant family
By BYRON SPIRES
Times Staff Writer
For Daniel and his wife Vita
Maldonado and their three
daughters, life is good.
Daniel and Vita hold jobs with
the State of Florida. Two of their
daughters are in college and one
is finishing high school.
They are living "The American
Dream".
The Maldonado's are like many
Hispanic families now living in
the United States. Daniel and
Vito entered this country h
illegally back in 1984. However, fo
they and their children are now
100% American citizens.
Their journey to America and
American citizenship reflects
many of those who are now
seeking a better life and a
brighter future for themselves.
Today, estimates say between
11 and 12 million immigrants are
in this country illegally.
They are here, like the
Maldonados, to make a better
life for themselves.

"Basically, he approved the agreement
that had been reached last month. It means
that we can now work with Agency of
Health Care Administration (AHCA) on
opening the hospital," said Thornton
Williams, county attorney.
He added that the hearing was necessary
to determine whether the license can be
transferred.
Ashford Healthcare Systems, Inc. filed
bankruptcy earlier this year and attempted


to use the license as a commodity of
monetary value, or collateral. Ashford is
the management company that operated
the hospital until it was shut down by
ACHA on Nov. 4, 2005.
The county maintained that the license
should revert back to the hospital and that
Ashford Healthcare, Inc. was only the
lessee. The county had planned not to
renew the lease with Ashford this June
because, they claimed, the company had
defaulted on the lease agreement several

scores up

The results of the writing portion of the 2006 Florida
Comprehensive Assessment Test (FACT) are in and they
are up.
District-wide the scores increased 3 per centage points
from 68 percent in 2005 to 71 percent in 2006. The number
of students scoring at the higher levels was up 11
percentage points
The bright spot was the eight graders. In 2005, 64 percent
scored 3.5 or above. However in 2006, 74 percent scored
3.5 or above.
While gains have been made at the eighth grade level,
fourth and tenth grade levels fell short.
In 2005 70 percent of fourth graders scored 3.5 or above,
but in 2006 only 66 percent scored 3.5 or above,
Among tenth graders in 2005, 74 percent scored 3.5 or
above, this year 73 percent scored 3.5 or above.
The FCAT writing portion of the test is graded on a scale
from 1 to 6.
"The standard score for the purpose of school grades and
student accountability is (a score of) 3.5. The district has
seen a greater increase in the percent of students scoring at
the higher levels of 4.0 and above, from 45 percent in 2005
to 56 percent in 2006," wrote school district employee Jan
Anderson in a press release on the results.
According to Anderson's release, Reginald James, school
superintendent, said he is proud of the growth being made
in the school system.
"Teachers are working hard preparing the students of
Gadsden County to achieve beyond expectation. The
students and parents have shown a renewed commitment to
learning."
"Writing is a skill which students will use throughout
their lives; therefore it has been a priority for our schools.
This commitment is paying off with improved test scores,"
James was quoted as saying in the release.


County approves 3,600 acres for development


State objecting

to Gadsden's
'urban sprawl'

by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
The Board of County Commissioners
approved the transmittal of seven pieces of
property that total more than 3,600 acres to
the Department of Community Affairs for
land use changes on second reading
Tuesday night during the regular meeting.
While residents know that' growth is
coming, some-feel the county is moving
too fast and want to extend the moratorium
on large scale land use changes.
Commissioner Sterling Watson asked his
fellow commissioners to consider the
extension past the June deadline. "I think
we ought to look at it. June is almost here
and we haven't really done anything," he


said.
State planners informed commissioners
prior to the first public hearings that they
had objections to some of the property.
Some of the concerns inlcuded urban
sprawl. developments not close to services,
widespread septic tank use that could lead
to underground water contamination and
traffic congestion.
The same concerns were expressed by
citizens such as Marion Lashley and Cindy
D'Entremont.
"We're going to have all these projects
and I'm opposed to approving these before
the visioning process is complete. I'm not
in favor of running the county this way.
We should have stepped back a long time
ago," Lashley said.
The visioning process is mandated by
DCA for counties to show their plan for
growth that includes everything from
urban services areas to utilities and more.
Commissioners appeared to be taking
developers at their word on just what they
will do with the property if approved.
For instance, The Highlands, 369 acres


near Lake Talquif, has Lashley worried if
the property changes hands what will
become of the developer's promise to put
in an on-site septic system.
She said that even before transmittal to
DCA had been approved she saw an
advertisement saying homes are already
under construction.
"We don't have anything to do with that.
We can't tell people what to say in their
advertisements," said commissioner
Brenda Holt.
"As a citizen, it doesn't make me feel
good. I don't know what's going on, I feel
you all (commissioners) have been
pressured to support this project," Lashley
said.
Richard Sprenkle, who lives near The
Highlands warned the developer that the
property has a number of gopher tortoise
colonies that will require special
consideration when the property is.
developed.
The Mortham-Shaw property, north of
Quincy near the Farms of Quincy, drew
attention from D'Entremont, who is


president of the nearby homeowners
association.
"I feel the development of 160 of 325
acres is not desirable," she said. Telling
commissioners that 100 acres had already
been set aside as a conservation area and
another.25 acres is unsuitable for building,
she said there are no safeguards that the
developer will do as he promises.
"I have the same concerns that I had
before, urban sprawl, density, increased
traffic and increased burdens on our
schools," she said.
"What is in place to guarantee the
citizens that things are going to be as you
say? What if another commission comes in
and changes what you have done?" she
asked.
"We can't give you that (assurance),"
commission chairman Ed Dixon said.
Other properties that will be transmitted
to DCA are Saranac Vineyards-454 acres;
Schnepf property-87 acres; Drew, Buford,
Mustian & Butler-2,300 acres;
Wildflower-77 acres; and four smaller
units totalling 42 acres.

Food distribution
center use doesn't

fit donor's will

By BYRON SPIRES
Times Staff Writer
The Gadsden County School
Board turned down a request by
the Midway Chamber of
Commerce for a lease-purchase
agreement on 25 acres of land the
school system owns in Midway:
The land was given to the
school system by Pat McLain, a
former Midway council member
for use as a school. The Midway
Magnet School was located on
the property before it was moved
into Quincy and relocated at the
old Quincy Middle School on
King Street.
Linda Morris, a director for the
Midway Chamber, requested the
land. The land she said is to be
used to provide services for the
citizens of Midway.
Morris said that the plans for
the 25 acres of land included
educational programs, a Farm
Share distribution center, social
services including health care
services, and a library.
Mark Robbins, CEO of Farm
Share, Inc. spoke to the board as
well. He explained that the
organization had a food recovery
program and was looking to open
a distribution center in North
Florida.
Robbins said the program
salvaged fresh vegetables from
the culling process and
distributed them to those in need.
He said that about half of the
vegetables were culled and
thrown away.
The organization uses
volunteers to recover the
food.Last year Robbins said, they
salvaged about 20 million pounds
of food. Sixty percent of that was
fresh foods.
The problem with leasing the
property became evident when
board attorney Debra Minnis
explained that at the death of
McLain, her will had put
stipulations on what could be
done with the land.
According to Minnis, those
requirements involved the land
beh f '' sed' an' educational
facility. It was also miiihti6fied*
that if a school were built there it
would be named after her.
"I would like to see the property
used for a school," board
chairman Roger Milton said. He
added that he would also like for
McLain's request to be honored.
Board member Judge Helm was
concerned about the recent
growth in Midway and the need
for a school in the area. The cost
of property would make it
difficult for the board to buy
Midway property.
Helms said that he liked the
idea of helping the community,
but asked, "is this our
responsibility to provide things
not related to students?"
Board member Isaac Simmons
said he was a board member
when the land *vas donated and
wanted to hold on to the property.
Board member Charlie Frost
agreed and said he wanted to
honor McLain's wishes as well.
"I really want to build a school
in Midway," board member Eric
Hinson said, adding, "the next
school may be in the Midway
area."
, Morris responded to the board's
concerns and said that the
Midway Chamber had worked
hard with the school board to stop
the charter school that had been
planned in Midway.
She said that at the time of the
charter school issue, Lex
Thompson, a developer in
Midway, had donated 100 acres
for the school. Morris said she
had talked to Thompson and the
land could be a place for a
school.
Milton asked superintendent
Reginald James to look into the
100 acres with the City of
Midway. Milton did say that the
Board might readdress the issue at
a later date.

In other business:
The board gave the go-ahead
for a feasibility study for
incorporating an East Campus of
the Gadsden Technical Institute
at the Havana Middle School.
The board gave staff
permission to move forward on a
contract with Energy Education
Inc. The company does energy
audits and guaranteed the school
a $200,000 yearly energy
savings. The contract will be
back before the board at next
month's meeting.
Gadsden County Sheriff
Department traffic officer Calvin
Carter presented a proposal to the
board concerning traffic and
student problems at Havana
Elementary. Carter recommended
speed bumps, a flashing light and
a school sponsored crossing
program called "Crossing
Guards".
Carter said he would beef up
patrolling over the area for the
next few weeks to slow drivers
down along Fourth Street.
Havana Elementary is not inside
the Town of Havana.
* James announced that a
$911,000 grant had been
approved for Gadsden County.
The grant will provide every
eighth grade student a lap top
computer starting next year. The
program is intended to enhance
learning through technology,
James said.
* The board agreed to pay $225
per game for an ambulance to be
at each football game including
high school and middle school
games.

Ground broken for new school


by BYRON SPIRES
Times Staff Writer
The new West Gadsden High School is now
under construction.
Tuesday afternoon Gadsden County school
officials joined Ajax Building Corporation
pei:sonnel in the official groundbreaking
ceremony for the new $19,499,950 high
school.
"This project is a long time in coming,"
Wayne Shepard, facilities director for the
Gadsden County school system said.
The new 117,422 square foot school will
have a maximum capacity of 600 students in
the six classroom buildings. The school is
located on 62 acres just east of Greensboro on
Highway 12 across the street from the current

West Gadsden High School.
School board member Eric Hinson, who
grew up in Greensboro, welcomed everyone
to a "great ground breaking." Hinson said he
was proud to be a part of bringing the new
school to the west side of the county.
"We are glad for this opportunity," board
member Charlie Frost said. Frost has been the
school board's liaison with the contractors
and architects during the planning stages of
the new school.
He said that the west side school would be
as good as the east side school, adding that the
board had learned a lot during the East
Gadsden High School's construction and
would apply that knowledge to the new
school.
Board member Isaac Simmnons said he had

project for the past eight years. Simmons said
that there had been some controversy
surrounding the initial combining of the
Chattahoochee and Greensboro high schools;
that was in the past and now there was one

About combining the two schools and the
building of a brand new West Gadsden High
School, Simmons said "good things comes to
those who wait.
"It is great to be a part of this change,"
Simmons said about the new school.

I think I can play that part


In a few months, the St. John Park will be a
nice place for people to take their children to
play. It will be a good place for people to take
advantage of the walking trail and to visit with
friends and neighbors. The park was just like
that a few years ago.
Then something bad happened.
The park was taken over by thugs. They
parked their cars all over the place, they
smoked weed and drank alcohol, the music
was loud and vulgar, and on more than one
occasion, shots were fired. Finally, the
Gadsden County Sheriff's Department ran off
those prone to loiter.
If this park is not to follow the path of its
predecessor, the people in the community are
going to have to determine that it's a
community park, not a community hang out
for people who need a street corner. They will
have to determine that they want a place that
children as well as the senior citizens can
enjoy.
All of the nice equipment and all of the shiny,
brightly colored play toys will get their share
of use. But it's going to be left up to the people


Show them the money!

Dear Editor,

Mr. James,
I'm writing because I see
you are still in the news. I
have one problem with your
theory on uniforms reducing
the discipline in our school
system. I was always
told that when a person wants
to do something, no matter
how you try to block it or stop
it, if they are determined it
will happen. Clothes don't
make the person, it comes
from within! So a student
could have on one of "your"
school uniform or "Tommy
Hilfiger" from head to toe, if
there is a good up-bringing
instilled in that child, you
won't have any problems, no
matter what they wear!
Enough about, the
uniforms!
I have noticed that you
were recently award a very
nice award. Everyone was
thanked, but I would like to
thank at this time, the
wonderful teachers that have
helped us get to where we are.
I worked at Greensboro
Elementary for years. I
worked with some of Gadsden
County's finest.
I call Greensboro
Elementary the "step child
school". They are in the
woods and long forgotten.
That school has some of the
best teachers: Tanya Bradwell,
Sandra Joseph, Cynthia
Bryant, Lillianne Hester, just
to name a few, but you get the
point. They as well as others
go that extra mile for their
students. These are some of
the teachers that when there is
a school activity and the child
can't participate, they will go
in their pockets to help. I
remember the time when Ms.
Hester brought coats to school
to give to the students in her
class that didn't have one.
This is love and dedication on
their part. They go beyond
their duty because they love
what they do. But, I'm
amazed at the pay they receive
for doing it. A beginning
teacher's starting pay is
$28,047 in Gadsden County.
This is people that have
degrees, along with student
loans that need to be paid
back. But an office manager
can start off with a pay of
$24,023 and no degree, just a
little job experience. Now
what's wrong with this
picture?
Our paraprofessionals,
which is just a fancy name for
teachers aide, are required to


who live in that community to see to it that
equipment isn't broken or its usefulness cut
short because someone wants to take an stick
to the slide instead of using it for the purpose
for which it was intended.
Somewhere along the line the public is going
to have to take back the right to use things that
are for the good of all. Some might put forth
the argument that teens and young adults need
a place to go. That's true.
However, there are some people who live in
New York City and still will say there's no
place to go, so it's all relative. But there is a
marked difference in having a place to go and
hanging out on a street corner all day and half
the night. Nothing good comes of it and we all
know that.
So, St. John and Robertsville, the ball is in
your court. You can embrace your new
renovated parks and keep them clean and safe
for the children and the elderly or you can
allow your neighbors to parks their cars on the
grass, litter, and tear up the equipment or you
can take a stand.


have at least 60 college credits
or a two year degree or pass a
substitution exam, and all of
this for $15,800. Those that
have degrees, also have
student loans that need to be
repaid. My problem with this
picture is how can they get
anything in life with this sorry
pay? When I was growing, up I
thought teachers were rich. I
don't know what gave me that
idea, I guess I didn't know
how much they were getting
paid. I have seen Gadsden
County in the past on the news
trying to recruit some of the
best to our school system, well
you've got the best of the best
here now, and if this is how
they are treated, I don't blame
the new garduates I would
keep on truckin too! You can
start at McDonalds with $7.50
an hour, working 40 hours a
week, and that would put you
at almost what a
paraprofessional makes, with
just a high school diploma.
Yes, they do have the
summers off and two weeks
for Christmas, but they have
earned it.
Sometimes we need to go
back to our roots. There's a
church song that say, "If I'm
too high Lord, please bring me
down". I don't forget my roots
and where I started from, but
maybe it's time that you
remember yours. Mr. James I
challenge you to a day in the
classroom. I will give up 8
hours of my time to be your
aide or should I say
paraprofessional?
Pre-K isn't like it was back
then! You need to remember
what it's like to have that
hands-on experience of being
around children all day, only
to get that sorry paycheck and
be reminded that you could be
an Office manager and make
almost the same pay with no
student loans. I'm game if you
are? Oh yeah, don't forget
WCTV, I know you love to be
on television.

Thanks
memories


Dear Editor,

I was saddened to read of
Chandler's closing. It also
heralds the closing of some
very good memories for me
and many others who grew up
in Quincy in the 60's. I'll
never forget riding around and
around Chandler's and
Luten's a dizzying number of
times in one night just to see


and be seen, not to mention
the great hamburgers and fries
and milkshakes that were to be
had. I would like to say
"thanks for the memories" to
the Chandlers and the Lutens
for all the good food and good
times.

Thoughts
Life


on Relay for


Dear Editor,

"Miss Julia" Woodward's
presence and participation at
the kick-off for the 2006
Quincy Relay for
Life was so inspiring! As a
36-year survivor Miss Julia
shared the honor of co-
chairperson with a fellow
cancer survivor, Mrs. Ann
Eggelleton, who is a 43-year
survivor. As a 12-year cancer
survivor, I congratulate these
two courageous women.
All of the people involved
in the opening ceremonies
were good and I hesitate to
single out any particular
participant. However, the East
Gadsden High School JROTC
color guard left me with a
renewed sense of patriotism as
memories of my ROTC days
at Florida State University
resurfaced.
And wasn't "You'll Never
Walk Alone" sung so
beautifully by Sister Clarice
Scott? Wasn't. that the class
song for the Class of 1958 at
Gadsden High School? That
song was so appropriate for
both occasions. And speaking
of singing, wasn't the
GadsdenSheriff Dept.
"Chosen Few" fantastic?
If you were not present to
hear this group sing gospel
and to see Sheriff Morris
Young assist Miss Julia out of
the golf cart which she rode in
the Survivor Lap, then pray
for another opportunity at the
2007 Relay for Life.

Have you ever thought about what television
show you might be interested in appearing on?
I met a fellow a couple of years ago that had been
on four or five game shows. We talked a little
about how he got on the shows and what was
expected of him.
I believe one of the shows was "Wheel of
Fortune". He didn't win, but he had a good time
he said.
Since then I've been thinking what shows I
might like to be on.
I could do the "Wheel of Fortune" fairly good
I think. I can spin as good as the next fellow.
However, I might have a little trouble solving
the puzzle.
I thought about "Jeopardy" for maybe ten
seconds and decided I wasn't as smart as that guy
that won all that money. My luck, I'd get hooked
up with two Einstein's and be the first person in
history to owe money by the end of the show.
Game shows are not the only TV shows I've
thought about.
I would really liked to have been on "The
Barney Miller Show". I could have been Fish's
sidekick.
Not too many new shows interest me. I do like
all of those "Law and Order" shows. There are
plenty of opportunities for someone like me to be
on those shows by the way.
I could easily play a dead body.
All I would have to.do is lay there and look
dead. I believe I would make an excellent dead
body. I mean I could probably be in all the
episodes.
One time I could play the victim, then an
innocent bystander and then a cop shot in the line
of fire.
Let's see, I could be one of those bodies you
see covered up in the morgue. As far as that goes
I could be the body that is autopsied in the
morgue, especially if they need an overweight,
gray haired, bearded guy.
That alone would get me on all of the forensic
shows, including C.S.I and all of their spin offs.
I thought about being someone in the crowd as
well.

A friend of mine played an extra in the movie,
"Andersonville". He was one of the Northern
soldiers shown dying in the southern prison camp.
It took three days to shoot the scene he was in and
he made $225. I could have been in the same
movie, but I didn't really look the part of a
starving soldier, so I decided not to try out.
Since then I've seen hundreds of parts I could
have easily played on TV and in movies.
I could have been, Daryl's other brother Daryl
on the "Bob Newhart Show".
I could have been a passenger on the show
'Wings."
As far as that goes I could have been a
passenger on the cruise ship Poseidon that gets
killed early in the movie. Or maybe one of those
people that is stepped on by that tripod looking
Martian, thing-a-ma-gig on "The War of the
Worlds".
What I would really like to do is be the person
David Letterman sends on trips to report on stupid
stuff.
I'm a connoisseur of stupid stuff, if you didn't
already know that.
I have my own collection of stupid stuff.
I'm the proud owner of a Ford Taurus, hub cap
I found hanging on a fence. I have a tree trunk
that grew in a spiral leaning against the wall in my
office.
In my toolbox at home is a railroad spike from
the Climax, Georgia, River Junction spur line.
I have the car keys from the second car I ever
owned and the gearshift handle (broken, by the
way) from the 1962 Chevrolet station wagon I
used on my first date. I also have one of the
engine lifter springs from the same car.
I certainly have the qualifications.
Well, I guess I'll just plug along and wait for
my big break.
I expect any day now that some big movie
production truck is going to pull up in front of the
office and one of those executive types is going
walk in and say:
"Do you have anyone in here that can play a
nobody to perfection?"
What can I say; I was made for the part.

St. John community breaks ground for new park


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
Monday was a good day for
Mary Kenon. The
groundbreaking ceremony to
renovate the park at Hutchinson
Ferry Road on M & M Lane in
the St. John community was
finally going to happen. Kenon
and several members of the St.
John/Robertsville Community
Development Association had
waited years for the day to finally
arrive.
"I want to thank the community
for their support," she said to a
few neighbors and friends who
had gathered at the site.
The park had fallen on hard
times in recent years. Playground
equipment wasn't functional, the
restrooms were unusable, and
park benches and barbecue grills
had disappeared. Added to that,
the park had become a haven for
street level drug sales.
But a $144,800 grant from the
Department of Environmental
Regulation's Florida Recreation
Development Assistance Program
(FRDAP) will change all of that
for the community. Renovations
will include a 20x40-foot
pavillion, restrooms, a tricycle
trail surrounding the two-acre
park, renovated basketball courts,
a new walking trail, and new
playground equipment for 4- to
13-year-olds. Future park features


It's time to grab those
comfortable walking shoes and
come out this Saturday to join in
the annual March of Dimes
WalkAmerica.
Teams from all across Gadsden
County have been waiting with
great anticipation to participate in
one of the country's oldest and
best loved fundraising events.
WalkAmerica will start on the
courthouse square Saturday
morning with registration at 8
a.m. and the walk kicks off at 9
a.m.
The honorary chairman for this
year's walk is Gadsden County
Sheriff Morris Young. Alongside
the sheriff and serving as. youth
ambassador 'will be Samantha
Chaires, a four-year-old
prekindergarten student at George
Munroe Elementary School.
"It's all for healthy babies," said
Susan Barfield, community
director for the March of Dimes.
Our theme this year is "Premature
babies need hope, love and you,"
Barfield said.
According to the March of
Dimes, each year over a half
million babies are born
premature. Premature births are
the number one killer of
newborns and affect one in eight
babies born in the U.S. Some
premature babies may also face
serious health problems like
cerebral palsy, blindness, or
mental retardation. Premature
births are a problem that hits
Gadsden County especially hard.
The county has one of the highest
premature rates in the state.
Barfield also wants to remind
all teams that Bank Day will be
held today (Thursday) at Premier
Bank in Quincy. The bank is now
located in its new facility on Pat
Thomas Parkway near the post
office and new county library.
Team captains are asked to
bring in their money so that the
incentives can be distributed for
their individual team members
and so the top teams and

"we hope the park will be a
spotlight for the community."
Commissioner Brenda Holt said
she wants to see lots of
intergenerational activities in the


park. "Kids, young adults, senior
citizens have been asking for this
park. Now, I want to see families
here. Maybe we could have a
rock-a-thon or something for the
community," she suggested.

Quincy deals with audit issues


Forensic

auditors say

they have

trouble getting

information

By BYRON SPIRES
Times Staff Writer

Finances were again at the top
of the list for Quincy city
commissioners.
Mayor Sherrie Taylor asked
interim finance director Christie
Joyner about the status of the
2005 state audit.
The city is required to submit a
yearly audit to the state
concerning the financial status of
the city. The audit also insures
that the city's bookkeeping
procedures meet state
requirements.
Joyner said that problems with
reconciliations of the 2004 audit
and the city's journals had
stymied the completion of
information needed for the 2005
audit.
She explained that in the
process of completing the 2004
audit, the finance department
could not add any new figures to
the 2004 journals.
The information, Joyner said,


Hospital

Continued from Page 1
Ashford.
GE's troubles were between them
and Ashford, not them and the
county. GE Financial also must set
aside 45 percent of the bond
monies so that the county can
collect from those accounts since
part of the money they intend to
collect belongs to the county.
No one could put a dollar amount
to the money still owed, but
Medicaid, Medicare, and private
insurance company payments are
still being collected. The question
now is who will get the money
from accounts receivable.
Mike Chavel, attorney for the
uninsured creditors committee, said
that when the motion was initially
filed by the debtor, there were 25
companies that expressed interest in
operating the hospital. "They all
backed out," he said.
"It only makes sense now for a
governmental entity to operate
there," he said.
That's exactly what the county
wants. The Gadsden Hospital, Inc.,
a board of directors named by the
Board of County Commissioners,
had been meeting regularly since
June 2005, anticipating that
Ashford might walk out of the
hospital before the lease ended.
The company was delinquent, in
rent payments, and commissioners


had to be sent to the auditors and
they in turn added the
information to the appropriate
departments.
Once the audit was complete,
the finance department could then
reconcile the city's journals with
the needed entries.
The problem, Joyner said,
involved matching the
information from the audit and
the city's journals.
Joyner said the finance
department staff is working to
correct the problem.
Taylor asked if the 2005 audit
would be ready by the September
30th deadline. Joyner responded
that it would.
In a related financial issue,
Taylor said she had met with the
forensic audit firm and had been
told that the firm' is having
problems getting requested
information.
The Quincy commissioners
hired an outside forensic audit
firm, Thomas, Howell and
Ferguson P.A. from Tallahassee,
to investigate the city's financial
situation and to look for any
possible wrong doing. The
firm has since requested some
information from the city and met
with each commissioner
individually.
Joyner said she had spoken with
the forensic audit firm a couple of
weeks ago and provided the
information requested.
Commissioner Andy Gay said
that after meeting with Thomas

had recieved complaints from
employees on the operation of the
hosptial.
In March, commission chairman
Ed Dixon, AHCA Secretary Alan
Levine, and Sen. Al Lawson
announced that a $2.4 million
agreement had been reached that
included $1.2 million for hospital
improvements. The agreement
hinged on whether a bankruptcy
judge would rule the agreement
fair.
According to the agreement the
county will pay AHCA $342,770
after the agency issues an operating
licence for the hospital and
$548,089 over a two year period
beginning 60 days after the license
is issued.
The county is to pay $300,000
into the creditors fund that was
established to help pay Ashford's
creditors. The City of Quincy is
owed more than $100,000 in
delinquent utility bills.
"We have worked with the county
all of the way to help get the
hospital back open. We agree with
the judge that the $300,000 had
been divided fairly. Now we have
to convince the Department of
Health and Human Services that we
need our critical care status. It's
going to take all of us, local elected
officials, Rep. (Curds) Richardson,
Sen. (Al) Lawson and the governor
to help us with HHS" said Jack
McLean, attorney for the City of
Quincy.


(of the forensic audit firm) he had
concerns with the city's finances.
Gay said he hoped by the next
meeting the commissioners could
come together and discuss some
of the findings of the forensic
audit.
"I feel it is important for us in
solving our financial issues," Gay
said about starting to bring the
issues forward.
In other business:
Commissioner Derrick Elias
brought up the Dexter Jackson
Scholarship fund. The fund was
set up several years ago to
provide scholarships for local
residents. Elias has brought the
issue up several times over the
past couple of years, but no
decision as to what to do with the
money has been made. Elias said
the money was sitting in a city
account and should be used for a
scholarship. Joyner said that the
city was looking at putting the
money in "Gadsden Learns", a
scholarship fund for local
students to Tallahassee
Community College. Gay said
that Jackson and his wife were in
favor of the move, adding that for
each dollar given to Gadsden
Learns, there was a 100 percent
match from the TCC Foundation.
City manager Willie Earl
Banks told commissioners that
the problems with the Gretna
interconnect had been corrected
at no cost to the City of Quincy.
* Commissioners planned a
workshop on the county-city fire

off in the three-way race for the
Quincy's District .3. Elias won

agreement for Monday May 1, at
5 P.M.
* City attorney Jack McLean
informed the commission that the
county was in the process of


buying the assets of the hospital.
The move he said would start the
ball rolling for opening the
hospital. The move would not
have any impact on the $109,000


electric bill owed by the former
owners of the hospital. That bill,
McLean said, was still tied up in
the bankruptcy courts.

to do the best we can do,"
Milton said.
He asked that everyone take the
controversy of the past and put it
behind them. "Join us, help us to
make the schools the best we can
be," Milton said.
Ajax project manager Jay Smith
said that he was pleased with the
partnership his firm had with the
Gadsden County school system.
The company was also the
project manager for East
Gadsden High School's
construction. Ajax is located in
the 10/90 Business Park in
Midway.
Smith said that his company
was using a number of local
Gadsden County firms for the
construction of the new school.
He said that the new school
would have a positive impact on
the county, both economically
and educationally.
"This is a day I thought would
never come," superintendent
Reginald James said, "we
persevered and it's a great day."
James said that the new school
was about the students and
preparing them for a brighter
future. "It's all about the
children," James said about the
start of construction of the new
West Gadsden High School.

DuPont performs in Eastman center


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
Carl Franklin DuPopt, Jr., bass-baritone, presentpgd
his senior recital recently in Kilbourn Hall on the
campus of the Eastman School of Music in
Rochester, NY. DuPont is a candidate for the degree
of Bachelor of Music and Performer's Certificate
from the studio of Robert Swenson.
He was accompanied on piano by Christina Lalog.
She is a candidate for the degree of Master of Music
from the studio of Jean Barr.
He performed L'incanto degli occhio and li
traditor deluso by Franz Shubert in Italian, Lieder
und Gesange, Op. 32 by Johannes Brahms in
German, and Vous qui faites l'endormie by Charles-
Francois Gounod from Faust in French. DuPont also

Braun on violins, Liz Ristow on viola and, Carrie
Bean on cello.
The evening was rounded out by Robert Owens'
"Faithful One," Margaret Bonds' "Dream
Variation" and Florence Price's "Song to the Dark
Virgin".
"I am very proud of my son and what he has


accomplished here. This is an excellent school and it
is evident that he was able to get excellent
instruction here," said Carl DuPont, Sr., following
the recital. "In a few months, after his graduation, he
will enroll at Indiana University, where he has
already been accepted," he said.
The Eastman School, one of the constituent
colleges of the University of Rochester, was brought
into being by the generosity of Rochester
philanthropist and Eastman Kodak magnate George
Eastman in 1921.
Today, more than 900 students are enrolled in the
collegiate division of the Eastman School of
Music-about 500 undergraduate and 400 graduate
students. They come from almost every state, and
approximately 25 percent are from other countries.
Each year about 250 students enroll, selected from
more than 1,600 applicants. They are guided by
more than 95 full-time faculty members. Seven
Pulitizer Prize winners have taught at Eastman, as
have several Grammy Award winners.
"My career has been rewarding and I'm looking
forward to graduate school and to someday performnn
on stages around the world, "DuPont, Jr. said. He is
also the son of Constance and James Poitier of
Daytona Beach.

RFM second in

Class A District

3 tourney
By Susie Morris
The Munroe softball team was the only county
team to escape alive from the district tournaments
held last week.
The Lady Cats placed second in their Class A
District 3 tournament defeating Carrabelle in the
first round but losing to Aucilla Christian in
finals. East Gadsden defeated Panama City Bay
in the play-in game by a 13-9 score but fell to
Godby 14-0 in the second round. West Gadsden
lost. in the first round to powerhouse
Wewahitchka.
Munroe senior pitcher Sallie Willis got the win
in relief against Carrabelle. Coming into the
game in the fourth inning and finding her team
down 5-4, Willis closed won Carrabelle and the
Lady Cats took the 9-5 win. Lefthander Malorie
McKinnon went the opposite way and deposited
a three run homerun over the leftfielders head.
She finished with two hits. Sallie Willis had two
hits, including a double and Spenser Morris,
brought up from the Middle School team, had
two hits with two runs batted in.
In all the Lady Cats tallied nine hits.
Aucilla Christian, on the other, hand, showed
why they are ranked second in the Class A
softball as four of their first five batters basehit
Willis. It was still a relatively close 4-1 ballgame
until the bottom of the fifth when Aucilla scored
three runs. They added three more in the sixth
for a 10-1 win. Melody Brown was two for 3
with a double. Willis also added two hits for
Munroe (14-12).
Munroe traveled to Jacksonville on Tuesday to
take on District 4 winner Eagle's View Academy.
At 17-5, Eagle's View boasts a very young but
talented team with four different pitchers. If the
Lady Cats win that game they will travel to the
winner of the game between Bethlehem (10-7)
and Milton-Central(14-10).

20 EGHS students get to put their abilities
first thanks to new grant from Able Trust


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
Twenty Gadsden County high school students will
now be able to participate in the High School/High
Tech (HS/HT) program for students with disabilities
because of a grant awarded to Ability 1st by the
Able Trust. HS/HT is a transitional program
designed to motivate and prepare high school
students with disabilities for college, jobs, and
careers in the 21st century, according to Siterra
Wallace, spokeswoman for Ability 1st.
Just this weekend, Gadsden students participated
in a program called "Return to the Moon" with
Leon County students at the Challenger Learning
Center. "Return to the Moon" is a simulationof the
NASA space station on control tower. Students were
able to get hands-on experience and to realize that
their dreams can be acheived, in spite of disabilities.
Local HS/HT students are James Davis, Cortez
Moore, Willie House, Keith, Showers, Keshanda
Gibson, Brian Turquest, O'Day Winbush, Raquel


Rochelle, Jack Williams, Jessie Frieson, Katesha
Austin, Blake Perry, Rob Young, Wesley Turner,
Jr., Cassandra Herring, Amaryllis Green, Kimberly
Forbes, Demetrious Golden, Mario Dixon, and
Renita Thomas.
The Ability 1st HS/HT program will make it
possible for students to participate in job
shadowing, mentoring opportunities, and summer
internships as well as other work-based experiences.
"The program shows proven results for students
with disabilities, with more than 90 percent of
Florida HS/HT graduates entering post-secondary
education, vocational training or securing
employment in 2005," Wallace said.
The Able Trust is the statewide sponsor of HS/HT,
which is a national program of the U.S. Department
of Labor's Office of Disability Employment Policy.
The program is made possible through a partnership
between The Able Trust and the Florida Department
of Education's Division of Vocational
Rehabilitation.

Havana council learns about the economics of electricity


By BYRON SPIRES
Times Staff Writer

The economics of
electricity was the topic of
Havana's city council
meeting Tuesday morning.
Roger Fontes, general
manager and CEO of the
Florida Municipal Power
Agency, Havana's
electricity provider, did not
paint a pretty picture for the
future of electricity cost.
Fontes said natural gas
prices jumped dramatically
in 2005 from a low of about
$5 per unit to a high of $20
per unit, (gas is figured in
BTU's) a 400 percent
variance.
About 50 percent of the
electricity producers use


natural gas in their
generating plants.
Hedging or buying ahead
of the market has helped
keep prices down, but does
not offset the tremendous
rises seen in the past year.
FMPA he said had
thousands of hedge contracts
amounting to over a million
cubic feet of natural gas.
Those hedge contracts
extend out to 2009.
To help with the rising
cost, Fontes said eight
agencies had pooled their
resources over the past two
years. Public Gas Partners
started to buy into natural
gas wells. So far the
partnership has bought 2000
gas wells in nine states.
Natural gas is a domestic


The next move,


Fontes said,


was to


coal-burning


generating


plants.

product produced in the
United States. Fontes said
that the US is considered the
Saudi Arabia of natural gas.
The next move Fontes


said was to coal-burning
generating plants.
FMPA has partnered with
three other entities including
the City of Tallahassee to
build a coal burning plant in
Taylor County. FMPA will
own 42 percent of the
production of the $1.6
billion 800 mega watt plant.
Plans are for a second
plant to be located on the
3000-acre complex to be
built near the city of Perry.
The new plant will
be,"the cleanest in Florida,"
Fontes said.
The coal-burning plant is
still in the early stages of
development and will need
to be permitted and licensed
before it can start
construction. It will be some


time in 2012 before the
plant will be operational,
Fontes said.
Another plant, this one a
nuclear plant, is also
planned somewhere in the
North Florida area. It will be
2020 before that plant could
become operational.
Fontes said that FMPA
and their partners were
working hard to keep energy
prices down by diversifying
the sources of generating
electricity for their
customers.
In other business:
* City manager Susan
Freiden told council
members that Burger King
was going through the
permitting process to open a
restaurant in Havana. The


restaurant is planned to
locate on the vacant lot
south of the city hall on US
27.
* The council turned down a
request for speed bumps on
Fifth Street.
* The council raised the cost
per month of a security light
from $6.50 to $9. City clerk
Howard McKinnon told the
council that a recent survey
showed the actual cost of
electricity for the lights at
$8.28 a month. Havana has
about 166 security lights.
* The council made a policy
to limit any new growth in
the Havana Community
Park. The decision to keep
the park with a lot of open
space was unanimous.

Truck drivers beware!
Starting Sunday, April

SUVs.
Seventy-one percent of
those killed in pickup

southeastern US during
2004 were not using their
safety belts.
Quincy police officer
Robert Mixon said the -
crackdown would continue
locally through May 13.
But, there is more to
come.
The national Click it or

Mixon said to remember,

Local vet concerned about


rise in Parvovirus cases


By BYRON SPIRES
Times Staff Writer

One local veterinarian has
seen an unusual
number of Parvovirus
cases in young dogs.
Dr. Larry Helms of
the Quincy Animal
Hospital said he had
seen 12 cases in the
last six weeks.
That is the highest
number of cases he
has seen since the
very early 90's.
"Normally we see
just a few cases a
year," Helms said.
Parvovirus -
referred to as simply
Parvo by dog owners
- is a potentially fatal
viral infection of
dogs.
The disease usually
infects puppies from
the ages of ten weeks
to six months. It
can remain in the soil
for up to a year,
making it easy for dogs to
catch the disease from other
infected animals.
"We are currently seeing a
large number of puppies with
Parvovirus. Almost all of the
puppies have received less than
ideal vaccines," Helms said


about the deadly dog virus.
Helms said vaccinating your
pet and minimizing contact
with strays and sick puppies is


critical for you and your pet to
avoid infection.
"During an outbreak, the
chances of contracting Parvo
are much higher for your
puppy," Helms warned.
Some of the symptoms to
look for in your puppy are:


Loss of appetite
Depression (listless)
Vomiting
Diarrhea
The disease is
preventable Helms said.
A visit to your
k veterinarian for vaccines
is in order if you have not
:. already started
vaccinating your puppy.
By the way, Helms
said one vaccination is not
enough.
A regimen of vaccines
is needed to keep the
Parvovirus at bay, usually
at 6-9-12-15 and 18.
weeks of age.
Wash your hands in a
weak bleach solution
when you handle puppies.
Be careful about
allowing other people
who own puppies to
handle your pet.
Should your puppy
have Parvo or if someone
you know has a puppy
with the disease, discuss
with your vet other
methods of disinfection.
Bleach kills Parvo, but
should not be used on your
animal, Helms said.
If you have any questions
about Parvo and its symptoms,
Helms recommends that you
contact your veterinarian.

My mother had leukemia and

blood. When people asked us
how they could help with nmy
mother, we told them they
could give blood. One of my
co-workers then called and set
up the first blood drive at
Focus Credit Union in
Chattahoochee. Now we have
drives also at our Quincy loca-
tion. This is a wonderful way
for people to help.

County dishing up ice

cream Friday on Square


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

Feel the need for some ice
cream?
Circle Friday, April 28, on your
calendar. From 12 noon to 2 p.m.
county department directors and
county officials will be dishing
up ice cream to all who want it on
the Courthouse Square.
Forget about the fancy stuff, the
ice cream menu will consist of
strawberry, choroclate and
vanilla. The celebration will end
a week of activities that coincide
with County Government Week.
Other activities included
Monday's groundbreaking at St.
John Park, Tuesday's dedication
of the new EMS facility in
Havana, and Thursday's
groundbreaking of the park in
Robertsville.
County Government Week is
sponsored by the National
Association of Counties. Gadsden
County is one of more than 1,000
counties nationwide that will
participate in this year's
celebration and the week's theme
of "Protecting Our
Communities".


"The county provides a number
of services to our citizens and
many of those services focus on
protecting communities," said Ed
Dixon, chairman of the Board of
County Commissioners. "The
county prepares for and works to
prevent disasters and crime.
Gadsden County is committed to
providing excellent public safety
to all who live, work, and play in
our community. The events
planned this week give us an
opportunity to share with the
citizens the services we provide,
how we protect them, and lets
them meet the hard working
employees that provide these
services."
This is the first time for an
event such as this. "The staff
came up with the (ice ceam) idea
so that the citizens could put a
face with some of the names they
see," said Jon Brown, public
information officer for the
county.
Displays and exhibits will also
be available to the public
throughout the week in the lobby
of the county administration
building.

Distribution firm


opens in Midway


10 jobs created

By BYRON SPIRES
Times Staff Writer
Midway'6 newest business
officially opened their doors last
Thursday. ABC Supply Company
Inc. is a wholesale building
supply operation catering to the
roofing industry
"We are glad to be a part of this
community," Chris Williams,
ABC branch manager, said at the
grand opening.
The new 30,000 square foot
warehouse located at 1135
Commerce Drive in the 10/90
Business Park is one of 300 ABC
stores nationwide. ABC is a
wholesale-only distribution
center and caters to contractors
who use roofing, siding, windows
and doors, and construction tools.
Ken Hendricks founded the
company in 1982 with three
stores. By 1986 they had become
the "fastest growing company in
the United States."
By 1997 at 205 stores the


company was ranked 321 in
Forbes 500 biggest private
companies. Shortly afterwards
the company reached $1 billion
in sales.
Today at over $2 billion in
annual sales the company is
continuing to expand.
Leon County's and the region's
continued growth, Williams said,
spurred the need for a local
distribution center in the area.
Williams said that many of the
contractors were familiar with the
company from their fellow ABC
stores in other parts of the state.
"We have a good customer base
here," Williams said, "and we
expect it will grow considerably."
ABC employs ten people
Williams said. Nine of those had
been hired locally.
The company has three
conveyor trucks and one box
truck that is used for deliveries,
Williams said.

ABC Supply Company and the

American society is a debatable
subject. The argument covers the
entire gamut from welfare, to
taking jobs, to the homeland
security.
But, one truth stands out above
all of the debate. Illegal
immigrants are here because jobs
are available.
Today, illegal immigrants fill
jobs in agriculture, the food
industry, construction and a host
of other labor-intensive
occupations. Many employers
say they could not operate
without those foreign laborers.
The recent demonstration by
3000 Hispanic workers at the
Gadsden County Courthouse
over the impending new
immigration laws testifies to the
issue's intensifying debate. Those
local demonstrators bring a
national issue home here to
Gadsden County.
A final law will probably be
ironed out in Washington over
the next few months. The
harshness of the law or the
strictness of the law is still up for
grabs.
In the meantime thousands of
new illegal immigrants cross
American borders looking for a
better life every day.
America has a lot to offer,
Daniel said, about why so many
try so hard to reach its borders.
Most of his fellow immigrants,
including those that are here
illegally, have lived in abject
poverty in their home countries.
Many come from small villages
where little or no work exists.
Those from larger towns and
cities find work hard.to find and
.. what work is available to be
extremely low paying.
Daniel said that most
Americans have not been outside
of this country and do not
understand just how poor people
live. Living in a sod house, with
no running water or in a slum of
shanties is the norm for most who
seek work in America.
Why will these people risk their
lives across barren deserts or
packed and hidden in trucks to
come to America?
The answer is simple, Daniel
said. Even the prospects of a
better life in America are a vast
improvement over their current
status of dismal poverty.
What America has to offer,
Daniel said is a place where hard


work pays off.
Because the work is here,
immigrants are willing to cross
the border illegally to reach what
they see as a land of plenty.
America for them is a place of a
bountiful harvest of work. Work
pays money, money buys
necessities, money can be used to
help bring others here and money
can be sent home to help make
life a little easier for those left
behind.
That is the trickle down effect
of illegal immigration.
"These people are here to look
for work, not a handout," Daniel
,said.
Daniel knows what he is talking
about. He was once one of those
undocumented workers. He came
here looking for a better life and
a job.
Daniel and his wife Vito are
from El Salvador. They grew up
near the city of San Salvador, the
nation's capital.,
About 15 percent of the
Hispanics in this area, Daniel
said are from El Salvador. Most
of the remaining 85 percent he
said are from Mexico.
It was not just a new life Daniel
was looking for; he actually fled
El Salvador during that country's
civil uprising. His choices
were to be a government soldier
or a guerrilla.


"You couldn't be in the
middle," Daniel said about life
for a young man in El Salvador
in 1984.
He and thousands like him fled
the country for America.
It wasn't easy he is quick to tell
you. He worked two years in
Texas as a laborer. He and Vita
married in this country and their
three girls were all born as US
citizens.
He applied for citizenship, a
five-year process he said. Daniel
wanted to be an American
citizen.
Daniel and Vita learned
English. His wife has a degree in
Business she earned in El
Salvador, Daniel has two years of
college behind him and several
advanced classes of study.
Daniel was instrumental in
introducing soccer into the
county and has worked in the
past with the Quincy recreation
department in establishing soccer
leagues in the city.
He believes that you should
give back to your community.
His sister and brother-in-law
live here and his parents were
recently in Quincy visiting their
children and grandchildren.
Daniel understands the need for
immigration laws, but at the same
time he understands the
predicament those crossing the


border illegally are faced with.
"For me, entering this country
legally would not happen,"
Daniel said.
El Salvador did not grant visas
to travel.
Others that are here he said
could not be in this country
legally either.
Daniel also understands the
foundations of American society
and the diversity of people that
have moved here.
"Look at the history of this
country. The Irish came here
after the potato famine, the
Italians, the Puritans, they all
came here as immigrants,"
Daniel said.
The Cuban influx into South
Florida is another example of
immigration and especially
illegal immigration. The
difference between that
immigration and the Hispanic
immigration is that many of those
that left Cuba were professionals:
doctor's, lawyers and business
people, Daniel said. Within the
Hispanic population the vast
majority were non-skilled
laborers.
"Why are they in Washington
so soon? It is because they came
with what they needed to
succeed," Daniel said.
Most Hispanics had to start
from scratch and do work others


do not want to perform, he said.
Those issues he said tied to the
language barrier and lack of
education make the Hispanic
influx a difficult issue to deal
with.
About the new laws, he said
that America should remember
their heritage and not be too
radical with any new laws. "Look
at what these people are bringing
with them, the willingness to
work," Daniel said.
Another point he was adamant
about was the number of
undocumented workers already
in this country.
"We have 11-12 million people
in this country that no one knows
where they are," Daniel said.
A dialogue needs to be
established to give these people
an opportunity to become
citizens, Daniel believes.
Part of that citizenship is the
right to vote.
Although only 250 Hispanics
are currently registered to vote in
Gadsden County, Daniel feels
that number will start to change.
This issue has drawn a lot of
attention to the plight of
Hispanics in this country, Daniel
said. "We are going to start
voting. Very soon you are going
to see those numbers change,"
Daniel said.


'Speak Out'

against sexual

abuse today

by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

Don't forget!!
Today at 6 p.m. citizens from
every comer in the county will
gather at the Quincy City Park
(just west of city hall) to rally
against sexual abuse and sexual
assault. The event is sponsored
by the Gadsden County Domestic
Violence and Sexual Assault
Task Force and is held in
conjunction with National Sexual
Assault Awareness Month.
The ninety minute rally will
draw attention to the problem of
sexual abuse and sexual assault
throughout the nation and locally.
"This is a huge problem. A lot of
times rural communities are
thought not to have such
problems, but we do. Not on the
scale of that of larger cities, but
we have more than our share.
Unless someone brings it to the
forefront, it will not be
addressed," said Camell Jones,
Gadsden coordinator for the
Refuge House.
Jones said it is important that
the community support this
effort. "The presence of one
person could save the life of
another," she said.
In addition to speakers, there
will be entertainment and
refreshments. Bring lawn chairs
and blankets. There will also be
organizations on hand to provide
valuable information on a variety
of subjects.

Pair brings music, art to kids


in Hispanic outreach program


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
The universal language of art and
music was evident at the McGill
Main Library last Wednesday
evening. Children book illustrator
Joe Cepeda and singer/guitar
player Jose-Luis Orozco were in
town for one day and entertained a
meeting room crowded with
children and parents.
Cepeda, -of Whittier, CA, has
illustrated more than 20 children's
books, including "Mice and
Beans", "Gracias, The
Thanksgiving Turkey", 'The Old
Man and His Door" and "Nappy
Hair".
"Cepeda makes brilliant use of
color, form, and perspective,"
wrote Hilda Bustamante in the
Kirkus Review about his work. In
a short presentation, Cepeda talked
about what it takes to be an
illustrator and how he draws from
his own experiences.
"I have a little fun. In all of my
illustrations in books you will see
me or a member of my family," he
said. The key to part of his success
in his work is the use of repetition
in form. In some works he uses
rectangles or squares to create-
continuity. "The kids can look for
it and they will usually find it
before the adults," he said.
Cepeda first studied engineering
at Cornell University before
studying cartoon drawing at
California State University at Long
Beach. I wanted to be a political
cartoonist for newspapers," he
said. But after illustrating his first
children's book, "The Swing," he
said he felt "natural" with
illustrations.
His nine-year-old son, Julian, has
also been a big influence in his
works. "I'm seeing the world
through his eyes. I suppose that as
he grows and changes, my work
will also change," he said.
Another reason Cepeda likes to
take his work to kids is to expose
them to another side of picture
books. "The children are often
exposed to the author, but they
; don't know what the illustrator's
role is in the book," he said.
From one form of art to another,
those attending the program were
eased into the music of Jose-Luis

and educate children as part of an Hispanic outreach program.


Orozco. It is easy to understand
why he commands undivided
attention of children and adults
when he speaks and sings. From
the time he took to the stage until
his exit, young and old sang along
with him, danced along with him
and everybody was a child again.
He is one of the nation's most
acclaimed educators promoting
Latin American songs, rhymes,
and games that are helping
children nationwide learn Spanish
at an optimum early age, according
to Ft. Lauderdale's Florida Sun-
Sentinel.
He and Cepeda were invited here
by the local library as an outreach
to Spanish speaking children. "I
have taken my music to school and
universities," he said.
Orozco began his musical career
early. At the age of eight he was
singing with the Mexico City Boys
Choir "and I traveled the world,"
he said.
But the gleam in his eyes comes
from seeing the faces of the little
ones light up when they clap their


hands and sing along with him. "I
love what I do. It was nice to see
the joy in the kids and in the
principals in Quincy," he said. No
stranger to the city, this is
Orozco's fourth trip here, made
possible through a Federal grant.
He stays away from controversy.
The current immigration
discussion will not creep into his
music. "Most of the song I do are
traditional. Many of them are more
than 500 years old but I add a little
variation. I sing of peace and
friendship and I use my music to
teach basic skills," he said.
His performances are in English
and Spanish. He didn't have much
trouble getting adults involved
either as he counted from one to 10
first in English, then in Spanish.
"My goal is to use music as a
teaching tool and to teach
concepts," he said.
"I enjoyed it very much, both of
them, I'm so glad we came," said
Joaquin De la Cruz, who brought
his son, Jesus and niece, Selene.

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


*Paying someone a $5000 $6000 Profit
on a $10,000 automobile.
Here's what we've done at Direct
Automotive Wholesale:
*All vehicles are priced at the "Loan
Value", which is the Price credit unions and
banks will loan you on this vehicle.
*We require NO DOWN PAYMENT on any
of our vehicles. We can even help with your
taxes and tag most of the time.


*At LOAN VALUE, we make a small profit
and you get a great deal!
The best Part is we have family on the
lot, NOT HIGH PRESSURE SALES PEOPLE.

The 2nd Annual Big River
Blast held this past weekend
drew over 1200 spectators.
"This is the most we have ever had at one of our boat races and
we wish to thank every person who attended," Lee Garner,
Chattahoochee city manager, said about this year's race event.
Garner added, he would like to thank the sponsors and the
S- '- participants from the Outdoor Drag Boat Racing Association, who
came from Texas, Mississippi, Alabama, North and South
Carolina, Virginia, Tennessee and Florida.
A special thanks goes to the employees of Chattahoochee, Garner
said, who assisted with getting the venue prepared and Talmage
and Monica Fitzsimmons.
S' .- Garner said Chattahoochee's River Landing Park where the event
--- was held is a favorite place for boat racers and the city has locked
in the 3rd Annual Big River Blast for the same weekend in 2007.
"The spectators stayed in area hotels and campgrounds, ate in
local establishments and purchased food, gas and beverages
_. locally. This event is an economic boost to our area," Garner said.
"I heard nothing, but compliments as to how everyone was treated
while in our great city, and I again thank everyone that had a part
S in making this our most successful race ever," Garner said.
Be sure, Garner said to make plans now for the 7th Annual
Chattahoochee Challenge on Saturday and Sunday, October 14th
and 15th to be held in the same location.

The Game of Baseball, invented in 1839 by Abner Doubleday, is known as "America's Pastime". The official rules of the game
were not created until 1845 by a man named Andrew Cartwright. It was at this time that he.founded the first official baseball club,
the Knickerbockers Baseball Club of New York. In 1876 the Nation League for Major League Baseball was formed. The American '
League was formed in 1900. It was with the birth of these two entities that the game of baseball as we know it today was born. The game has
produced infamous players such as Babe Ruth in the 1920's, and famous places like Wrigley Field in Chicago, Illinois and Tuner Field in Atlanta, Georgia.
The baseball field is called a diamond. There are nine players that make up three sections of the team The sections are the battery, the infield, and the outfield.
The battery is made up of the pitcher and the catcher. The infield is comprised of the first, second, and third basemen, and the shortstop. The outfield is the farthest
away from the battery, and is made up by the right, center, and left fielders. The bases that make up what is called a diamond, are 90 feet apart. Baseballs are 9
inches in diameter, and usually weigh about five ounces. Bats in the major leagues must be made out of wood, and must not be longer than 42 inches long. The
catcher's mitt is usually the thickest of the baseball gloves on the field in order to protect his hand from incoming balls. The pitcher's mitt is the thinnest, in order to
allow a lot of flexibility. When batting, the players wear helmets to protect them, in case a ball accidentally hits them.
The object of the game of baseball is to score the most runs by the end of nine innings. An inning is made up of two parts, one for each team, in which the teams
take turns batting and fielding, until three strikes are made. To gain a run the player must make it around all three bases and back to home base. The player's team is
then awarded a point. If the player makes it around all four bases at one time, it is a home run. The team with the most points at the end of the game wins.

Greensboro releases honor roll


WGHS

JROTC is

Best in West
by S5 Captain Sarah Dennis

On Friday, April 7 West
Gadsden High School's JROTC
received its formal inspection by
the US Army Cadet Command.
This is an event that is conducted
once every 4 years.
The inspection determines the
rating that a unit will receive. The
inspectors were Mr. Mewbourne
from Cadet Command. and
Master Sergeant Strickland from
FAMU Senior ROTC.
After many hard months of
arduous work that included staff
records preparation, staff
rehearsals, quiz bowls, preparing
uniforms, Drill and Color Guard
rehearsals and more, the West
Gadsden Panther Battalion was
successful in achieving its Honor
Unit With Distinction rating and
the Gold star (a symbol of this
rating) that is worn on the
uniform.
The West Gadsden campus
(previously Greensboro High) has
a legacy of having the Gold Star
for a total of 36 years..
At the end of the day, West


'3,'

Gadsden's final evaluation score
was 96.9. The unit was inspected
in the areas of supply, personnel
records, staff procedures and
efficiency, staff briefings,
individual uniform appearance,
drill efficiency, Color Guard, and
a Quiz Bowl. Out of a total 600
points the West gadsden earned
585.
Cadet Pedro Cantero stated, "It
wasn't as hard as I thought it
would be; we all made sure we
looked in uniform. It's a great
learning experience for future


generations that will face this
adrenaline-pumping inspection."
So, as you can see the cadets of
West Gadsden proved once again
that they will ,never settle for
anything less than their best.
West Gadsden JROTC
instructors Major Martinez and
Sergeant Major Duddley were
really proud of their cadets'
performance and for living up to
the school's motto of "Always
settle for nothing less than the
best". HOOAHH!

Artists
On Wednesday, April 19, the fourth grade of Robert F. Munroe Day
School visited the Gadsden Arts Center. Sharon Lasseter guided the
class through the Bronze by Cooley exhibition. The students learned
about the lost-wax method to develop bronze sculptures. After viewing
the sculptures of Native Americans, wildlife, golf figures, and a
smaller version of the statue of Ray Charles, the students were given
the opportunity to create their own art projects. Pictured are teacher
Betty Suber with Alex McDaniel, Andrea Zang, and Olivia Fletcher
completing their collages of animals in their habitats.

promote and celebrate the
teaching of American history in
classrooms across the United
States. It honors one exceptional
K-12 teacher of American history
from each state and U.S. territory.
The selection of the state winner
is based upon several criteria,
including: experience in teaching
American history for at least
three years; a deep career
commitment to teaching
American history; evidence of
creativity and imagination in the
classroom; and close attention to
documents, artifacts, historic
sites, and the other primary
materials of history.
The state winner will receive a
$1,000 honorarium and will be in
the running for the National
History Teacher of the Year
award to be selected this fall. His
or her school library will receive
a core archive of history books
and materials.
The deadline is May 5, 2006.
