CRA could

revert to

former board

By BYRON SPIRES
Times Staff Writer
Changes may be coming for the
Quincy Community-
Redevelopment Board (CRA).
The board presently consists of
the five sitting city
commissioners. The decision to
make the commissioners the
CRA board happened last year.
Mayor Sherrie Taylor asked that
the commission take over the
reins of the CRA board replacing
the current sitting board.
The commission voted to
become the CRA board and now
must meet monthly in that
capacity. The former CRA board
brought all issues before the
commission for final approval.
Major James, a member of the
CRA community committee and
a former CRA board member,
asked the commission to revert
back to the old process and allow
the (community) committee to
become the CRA board.
Board member Andy Gay
agreed and said that the
commissioners would be better
served taking care of the city's
current financial problems.
Board member Finley Cook
agreed. Cook had been thle lone
commissioner to vote against the
commission becoming the CRA
board.
Attorney Jack McLean said that
any changes would have to come
before the commission.
Chairperson Taylor suggested
that a workshop for the CRA
possible changeover should be
held. Taylor addressed the issue
in the regular city meeting and a
workshop is planned for May 22
at 5 p.m.


Firing process

requires hearing,

another vote

By BYRON SPIRES
Times Staff Writer
Three Quincy city commissioners found out
Tuesday night that just passing a motion to
oust city manager Willie Earl Banks was only
the first step.
There was a considerable amount of
confusion about the exact way the motion
needed to be worded.
Mayor Sherrie Taylor passed the gavel, to
mayor pro tem Andy Gay and made the


motion to start the process of relieving the
city manager of his position.
Commissioner Finley Cook seconded the
motion.
The discussion then turned to the wording of
the motion, which did not state the reason for
the termination.
According to city attorney Jack McLean, the
commission could not fire Banks out right.
The city's charter, he said, stated that the
commissioners had to go through a process
that included voting to prepare ia resolution
stating publicly the reason for the termination
and then must vote on the resolution at a
regular meeting.
Taylor rescinded her motion and Cook
rescinded his second.
This time Taylor made the motion to create
a resolution to "terminate the city manager's
contract. She gave the city's current financial


problems due to reasons that occurred during
Banks' administration as the reason for the
termination.
Before making the motion Taylor praised
Banks for things he had done during his
tenure as city manager, including the city's
excellent water supply.
But, she dampened her compliments of
Banks with criticism as well.
Taylor said the city was at the point that it
needed to pass the torch to someone else. She
said she had spent over an hour with the
forensic auditors and felt that information was
not forthcoming from the city. She was afraid
that the commission would not get what they
wanted under the current administration
concerning the audit.
"How do we expect change when
everything stays the same," Taylor said.
See BANKS on Page 16


Immigration laws..


...What we think.


From machinists to family to

politicians, we all have an opinion.


By BYRON SPIRES
Times Staff Writer
(This is the fourth and final article in
the series concerning immigration and
undocumented workers in Gadsden
County. This is a very complicated
issue, which has a broad range of
tribulations and possible solutions.
These articles have been done to
hopefully shed some light on a national
problem that directly affects both the
local economy and the growth of
Gadsden County.)
Over the past month there have been
two gatherings on the Gadsden County
courthouse square by some of the local
Hispanic population in response to the
possible changing of the federal
immigration laws.
Last week there was a "walk out" of
Hispanic workers across the county and
the nation. The exact effect of that walk
out is unknown.
If you read or watched the national


news last week you know that a number
of food processing plants were closed or
slowed down. Other industries, like the
food service and maintenance industry,
were affected as well.
Locally a number of Hispanic workers
did not show up for work on Tuesday.
How many or the effect is another
unknown.
The walk out and the demonstrations
are a way of drawing attention to the
impact the undocumented workers have
on this country. Like the other issues in
this ongoing saga, lines are blurred
between actual numbers and the real
affect on the economy.
As you have seen over the past three
weeks, the more you dig into this issue,
the more complicated it becomes.
What has surfaced as a major player has
been jobs and people to fill them.
Gadsden County is a perfect microcosm
of what is going on nationally. Last week
local employers explained that they
needed workers to produce their products

Happy Mother's Day, from Dexter!


Super Bowl 37

superstar delivers

on promise

to his mother

by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
Normally Lula Lee gets cards, phone
calls, and flowers for Mother's Day. But
this year is different. Today, she will get
the keys to a brand new three bedroom,
three bathroom home on 2.5 acres of
land.
The home is the fulfillment of a
promise made four years ago by her son,
professional football player Dexter
Jackson.
"Ever since he signed he always told
me that he would buy me a house if it's
the last thing he did. First, he bought me
this car," she said, pointing to the SUV
he gave her several years ago.
Lee's daughter, Tanya Carter, a 1st Lt.
in the Air Force, has promised to furnish
the house. In fact, according to Lee, it
was Tanya who let the secret out.
"She called one day and asked if I had
talked to Dexter. I told her that I talked
with him the day before and she asked
me if he told me anything," she said.
That's when Tanya told her that Dexter
had bought her a house. She cautioned
her mother not to let on that she knew
until Dexter gave her the news himself.
But he didn't do that. "He called one

Lula Lee, mother of Dexter Jackson, received a Mother's Day

Nikki (her daughter) drove me around
looking at houses. I picked out one I

got.
Lee said Dexter and his family came

home one weekend and looked at the

"When the man (builder) came to take

"Yes, I know," the builder .said.

Like a true mother, not wanting to spoil
the surprise, Lee never let on that she
knew about the house. "It was something
he wanted to do for me," she said.

Jackson's father, Wilbur "Red"
Jackson, died at work of a massive heart
attack when Dexter was 13 years old.
Lee said her son has shouldered some
awesome responsibilities. "We've been
through some struggles," she said.
The family has been through a lot.
Lee's father and husband died within a
week of each other. Her mother was ill
for five years and when things seemed to
start going smoothly,
Lee fell ill. "I had a kidney transplant
and a thyroid transplant while he was in
college. I had a lot of medical problems
and my medication is still very
expensive."
Even his decision to attend Florida
State University was based on the fact
that he would be near his mother because
of her then-failing health.
Lee said her son always told her he
would make it and that he would look
out for the family.
"I never doubted him because he is that
type of person. All of.his life he has had
determination to make it."
Even his friends, Lee said, would tell
her that Dexter's determination to succeed
rubbed off on them. "He played so hard,
it made them play hard," she said.
Jackson, who earned the Most Valuable
Player designation in Super Bowl 37
while with the Tampa Bay Bucs, will be
playing this season with the Cincinnati
Bengals.
"He won't be here for Mother's Day,
he's up there. But we will talk on the
telephone. He knows I am packed and
ready to move into the house. I can't wait
to get in the yard and plant some roses. I
love roses," she said.
Happy Mother's Day, Lula Lee.

Leon County teens Lauren Strickland, Dustin Haire, Chris Wesley, Matt Redmond, and

Diversion program helps teens


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

It's called a non-judicial
diverson program and the
intent is to allow teenagers to
determine the fate of other
teenagers who have had very
minor run-ins with the law.
Last Wednesday afternoon
several Leon County teens
who have been involved in
that county's Teen Court,
came to Quincy to share their
experiences with prospective
participants.
"There are a lot of benefits
to getting involved with teen
court," said Antonio Johnson,
Juvenile Alternative. Sanctions
Coordinator of the Second
Judicial Circuit of Florida,
which includes Gadsden
County.
In addition to learning about
the court system, teens can
rack up valuable community
service hours by participating.
The hours can help students


quality for Florida's Bright
Futures Scholarship and
others. Many colleges also
look at community service
hours when determining
whether students will be
accepted for enrollment.
Matt Redmond said he got
started through his Civics
class. Because he acts as a
teen court attorney, the
program has helped improve
his speaking skills. "It makes
me think a lot more about
things and a lot more
critically," he said, not to
mention the 200 plus
volunteer hours he has earned.
Other students became
involved for a number of
reasons, but.they all agree that
the program is worth the
effort.
Johnson said students run teen
court. "They will be the
prosecutors, defense attorneys,
jurors, and baliffs. They will
be everything except the judge
- that will be a Bar Certified
attorney." Referrals will come


from the State Attorney and
only teens with misdemeanors
will qualify for the program.
Leon County has had the
program for several years and,
Johnson said, they now take
referrals up to limited
felonies. Brennan Grant of the
Leon County Program
explained the benefits of the
program to about 50 Gadsden
County teens who had
demonstrated and interest in
the program. Grant said she
started with the program in
high school and stayed with
the porgram through college.
She now coordinates that
program.
The local coordinator is
Adrian Bishop, a social work
graduate student at Florida
State University and Gadsden
County resident. The program
is funded through the courts
with funds generated 'from
increased court fines. The
program will be administered
from the Gadsden County
Sheriff's office.


Fellow citizens, I am
officially announcing my
candidacy for School Board
Representative, District 4. It
is my sincere desire to serve
the citizens of District 4 and
Gadsden County with total
integrity and moral courage
to standup for what is best
for our children and
community. I am a strong
proponent of "B.O.S.S":
Better Opportunities for
Student Success.
I have over thirty years
experience teaching and
training youth. Citizens,
before students can be
taught to receive knowledge,
they must have discipline in
their lives. First, I stand firm
and unwavering on
discipline that is fair and
just. As a current classroom
teacher, I see first hand what
the problems are.
One must have "boots on the
ground" to observe problems
first hand. Problems. cannot
be solved timely and
efficiently at a distance. The
classroom is the training
environment that produces
experience at eye level. I
earned my wings everyday
in the trenches. This eye
level' experience will
enhance the safety of our
school.
Secondly, as a trained
military professional, I know
the value of keeping our
children and school staff
safe. A safe and secure
learning environment is
tantamount for success. I
have physical security
experience within a complex
organization. Again citizens



Tom Davis


it takes a trained eye. Your
children deserve to be safe
and protected by the
institution that you entrust
them to.
Thirdly, our teachers need
empowerment. While
children are our greatest
resources, qualified teachers
are diamonds. Teachers
deserve respect, continuous
training and greater
compensation.
These attributes are
unmatched for success in the
classroom. Fourth, and final,
students need the
opportunity to sustain a
living, by acquiring critical
vocational skills.
I find it appalling that
after hurricane Katrina
catastrophe, our students did
not possess the vocational
skills necessary to find
employment. This major
oversight must be corrected.
In order to help facilitate
B.O.S.S., one needs
experience.


A brief listing of
experiences and credentials
are: US Army retired
sergeant major; ten years
classroom teacher; bachelor
of science Florida State
University; graduate
studies/human resource mgt.
at Pepperdine University;
graduate studies/health'
facilities mgt. at Webster
College; certified master
fitness trainer; emergency
medical technician,
paramedic, BCLS, ATLS;
twice school teacher of the
year; four time Who's Who
Among America's Teachers.
Come join the B.O.S.S.
Team! We are looking for.
you, together we will.
provide better opportunities.
for student success. I extend
a gentleman's hand shake to.
my competitors, they are,
honorable men.

Who's Who
honors local
teacher
Annette Jones-Walker, a fifth
grade teacher at Greensboro
Elementary School, will be
included in the Who's Who
Among America's Teachers. Ms.
Jones-Walker was notified by
Jefferey J. Fix, vice president of
student programs of Who's Who
Among America's Teachers that
she will be included in the 10th
edition for 2005/2006.
Who's Who will honor a select
5% of our nation's teachers. Ms.
Jones-Walker was recommended
by one of her former, successful
students who said she made a
difference in her life.

Times Editor
Big Bend Hospice honored Dr.
Jessie Furlow with an
appreciation reception at the
Gadsden Garden Center last
Wednesday. Nearly 100 invited
guests attended the afternoon
event to honor the woman who,
for the past 13 years, has been the
medical advisor to the Gadsden
County Hospice Program.
"Dr. Furlow is 'The Doctor'
here and we are honoring her for
all she has done for. this
community. There are very few
lives in Gadsden County she has
not touched," said Donna Gatch,
Gadsden/Liberty Team Manager.
Furlow, said Gatch, has been
the backbone of the
Gadsden/Liberty Hospice team.
"She has been very supportive of
the Hospice philosophy, which is
to provide compassionate care to
individuals with a life-limiting
illness, comfort to their families
and emotional support to anyone
who has lost a loved one," she
said.
An informal reception
line formed to congratulate
Furlow, who came to Quincy in
1982. "I remember working with
her at the hospital. We would
have to hide her car because

"Gadsden Liberty is the best

Furlow.
Furlow is also been tapped to
receive the 2006 Servant's Heart
Award during the Crescent Moon
Gala on May 20 at the Moon in
Tallahassee at 6 p.m.
"I can't think of anyone who
has given more from her heart to
this community and this region in
terms of health care than Dr.
Furlow," said former WCTV
news anchor Carmen Cummings.
Cummings co-founded the event
with her husband, Dexter Martin,
four years ago to bring awareness
to Sickle Cell Anemia and to
raise funds for that cause.


My mother had leukemia and
she was given many units of
blood. When people asked us
how they could help with my
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.

A good time at Quincyfest


Fighting Armadillos


Anyone who missed Quincyfest last weekend
really missed a treat.
I guessed throughout the day, there were
5,000 or more people downtown enjoying the
barbecue and listening to the blues. There were
lots of activities for the children, all organized
by the Gadsden Arts Center.
The professional barbecuers all said they had
a wonderful time and plan to be back again
next year. The one comment that ran
throughout was the hospitality of the people
here.
Of course, I have always been proud of the
hospitality of the people here. But there are
times when it takes a complete stranger to
remind you of what you have in your own
back yard.
The local people had a good time too.
Committee members received loads of
compliments on the organization and the
entertainment. Folks also enjoyed watching the
teams flip slabs of ribs, half chickens and
whole chickens and hunks of pork.
I still wish that more local people would take
advantage of the one-day festival. Before
"Blues and Barbecue" started up two years
ago, I got calls or comments from people
almost weekly. They wanted to know why we
didn't have a festival like other towns.
Well, now we have a festival and the people
who come from out of town almost equal the
locals. A year ago we had the first festival and
people had a lot of suggestions on how to
make it better. We welcomed those ideas.
Most suggestions were mainly on how to


make it bigger. And to me, bigger does not
always equate to better.
In order to make some of these suggestions a
reality, some volunteer manpower is needed.
Here's the tricky part. The people with the
suggestions didn't have the time or the
inclination to volunteer. Oh, I forgot to
mention that none of the people who have
volunteered to pull the festival together never
get paid for the hundreds of hours it takes to
put on the festival.
I heard from several people that there should
have been more for children. There was a lot
for children. I got the feeling that there was, in
some minds, the hope that there would be a
place where kids of all ages (babies to teens)
could be dropped and entertained by someone
while the parents enjoys the "Blues and
Barbecue". ri
For 364 days a year, there are activities for
kids. Some things should be for grown-ups.
That's the beauty of being a child, you have
something to look forward to later. Anyhow,
the committee has batted'around the idea and
we've reached the conclusion that there is no
way we are going to be able to fulfill the needs
of all the children whose parents want to have
them tag along.
We did out best last year and this year. For
some people, no matter what you do it will
never be enough. They are the ones who will
never lift a finger to help, but will be quick to
criticize the efforts of others. That kind,
unfortunately, will always be with us.


I'm in a pickle of a dilemma and I don't
know what to do.
I am fighting a losing battle with
armadillos.
They have slowly taken over my yard and
I'm at my wit's end trying to get rid of the
pesky varmints.
I now have gaping holes in my yard where
the pointed nosed, hard-shelled rascals have
dug. Some of those pits are big enough
There doesn't seem to be a sure solution to
getting rid of armadillos.
The usual charms like lime, mothballs or
noisemakers don't seem to faze them.
I have looked on the Internet for some
information that might help me rid my yard of
an imposing takeover by the beady eyed,
sharp-clawed pest.
I didn't find anything about how to get rid
of an armadillo, but I did findsome interesting
information.
We have the genus Dasypus nine banded
armadillo in Florida, by the way, if you didn't
already know that.
They like to dig, you see, because that is
how they feed themselves and their families.
Armadillos eat insects they dig out of
our yards.
So if they are in your yard digging around
there is a pretty good chance they sense some
major insect infestation or they are lost.
Armadillos are primarily nocturnal or in
layman's terms, they hunt or (in the case of
armadillos) dig at night.
That can explain why you can go to bed at
night with a good looking yard and wake up
the next morning with a yard that looks like a
herd of wild hogs spent the night rooting
around.
These forager of yards not only root up our
grass they live in a giant hole in the ground.
The burrows can be two to eleven feet deep


and as long as 23 feet.
Armadillos have four babies and reproduce
once a year. They can live as long as 15 years,
providing they don't try to cross a busy
highway. They rummage over
about 12-13 acres with an average population
of 6-12 per acre.
You would think with all of the information
out there we could devise away of getting rid
of them.
In desperation I tried to shot one once. I
missed him three times and gave up. He never
moved from the hole he was digging.
So I threw a rock at him and wouldn't you
know it I hit him square on top of his head.
I learned several things that day.
First, if you hit an armadillo on top of the
head with a rock he will jump straight up in the
air. I'd say as much as three feet in the air.
Second, he will then run straight at you. I
don't know why, but he did.
Third, you cannot run from an armadillo
with someone trying to climb up on your
shoulders in an attempt to get away from a
marauding armadillo.
Fourth, don't take someone with you that is
afraid of armadillos.
Fifth, don't use a worn out old pistol to
shoot at armadillos.
If you have a sure-fire way of getting rid of
armadillos please let me know ASAP. Because
not only is it my problem, but also I'm getting
phone calls now from readers wanting a
solution to their armadillo problem.
So far all I can tell them is what doesn't
work.
Does anybody know what armadillo taste
like?
Maybe we could, start a new trend.
I'm sure they dbn't have any cholesterol.
and I don't really belieN e that deal about them
being a carrier of leprosy.


Community planning

Dear Editor,

On Monday May 22 at 6
PM, the Gadsden County
Planning and Zoning
Commission will holda public
workshop to discuss changes
to the Comprehensive Plan
that would drastically change
development patterns in the
area outside of the cities'
boundaries.
The proposed new land use
categories, High Density
Residential and Mixed Use,
would allow up to 12 housing
units per acre in qualifying
areas.
It is important that we
know and define what the
"qualifying areas" will be so
that these residential
developments have locational
criteria and standards
that will be met and followed.
It is not appropriate that these
types of developments occur
wherever the developer wants
them. Good growth
management dictates that they
be located where central water
and sewer exists, that the
developer and/or County is
willing to extend the nearby
water and sewer service and
that septic tanks are not ever
an option.
I encourage anyone who
lives in Gadsden County in a
city or the rural areas to attend
this meeting so you can hear
how these changes may affect
you and your property. Our
State laws encourage citizens
to address the various Boards
by asking questions, bringing
up concerns and voicing
reasons for support or
opposition.

Marion Lasley

Supports James

Dear Editor:

I'm writing in response to
Ms. Carolyn Allen's article in
your April 27th edition. First
and foremost, I realize
everyone is entitled to their
opinion, thus, I would like to
express my opinion on several
of Ms. Allen's subject matters.
I think that if polled, everyone
with the obvious exception of


a few, will agree that we who
reside in and around Gadsden
County need to seek ways in
which our children can
achieve the best education.
State and national statistics
have proven that schools with
a uniformed dress code
statistically perform better
than those who do not have a
uniform environment.
I think Ms. Allen was
absolutely correct when she
said "clothes don't make the
person", however, in today's
society, it is a known and well
documented fact, clothes do
cause SERIOUS ciaos (sic)
and conflict in the school
system as well as in the home
environment. I personally
have been following the pros,
cons, plus, deltas of the
uniform environment have
come to a generalization that
those schools that require
uniforms have seemingly
made a significant difference
with student's behavior and
grades.
As it relates to teacher
incentives, recognition, and
pay, I think Ms. Allen has to
realize that Rome was not
built in a day. I have known
Mr. James for several years
and I can truly say, based on
newspaper articles, pamphlets
and ads he has placed a lot of
emphases on "recognition".
Although Mr. James is the
Superintendent, many of the
problems that need to be
addressed can not be
addressed as quickly as some
of "us" would like. Gadsden
County School system has
many, many outstanding and
great teachers; unfortunately,
they like many others in the
state are not being
compensated as they should
be. Moreover, our Legislators
and Governor should step up
to the plate with some -real
funding to assist Mr. James
and other Superintendents in
their efforts to reward and
recognize valued employees.
Most importantly, and I
stand to be corrected, Jr.
James is the first
Superintendent in ten or more
years to give the well
deserving teachers a raise.
In conclusion, I pray that Ms.
Allen's frustration is not
stemmed from an incident that

dies in car crash


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
A 79-year-old Gadsden County
woman, Kelly Ovelia Shiver,
died in a two-crash last
Wednesday night around 7 p.m.
according to a report released by
the Florida Highway Patrol.
Shiver, who lived on the
Attapulgus Highway, was
traveling north on County Road


65 in a 1993 Nissan while a
2006 Mazda driven by 25-year-
old Justin LaJuan Gaymon was
headed south on CR 65. Shiver
failed to see Gaymon and made
a left turn onto Philadelphia
Church Road. Gaymon was
unable to stop before the front of
the Mazda struck the right front
of the Nissan.
Shiver was pronounced dead at
the scene.

Quincy police are still searching
for a man who reportedly wielded
a child-sized baseball bat and
asked a man for money last
Wednesday night during an
attempted robbery.
When the man said he didn't
have any money, the two argued.
The man with the bat ran away
when the other man closed the
door of a laundry room of an

The volunteer fire department

additional money.
"Our department is well on the

There is a need for the fire

won at Pickwick, Tennessee's 50-mile race this past weekend.





Goin' Racing


When he's not flying jets for a living, Allen Campbell

gets his speed "fix" in a race-winning, off-shore speedboat


By Byron Spires
Times Staff Writer
Quincy native Allen Campbell brought
home the bacon this past weekend winning
first place in the Second Annual Pickwick
Challenge "Racin' on the River" Offshore
Powerboat Races & Festival.
Allen, who grew up in Quincy is the son of
local resident Jim Campbell. When not racing,
Allen is flying a Delta 777 around the world.
He will complete his 29th year as a Delta pilot
this year.
Allen races in the Off Shore Super (OSS)
powerboat racing association's 'Vee Lite'
division. His Phantom "Screaming Eagle"
fiberglass racing boat is powered by a single
Mercury HP 525 EFI engine that pushes the
30 foot, 4,750 pound streamlined offshore
racer at speeds in excess of 90 miles per hour.
he speedster boat has an enclosed cockpit
that includes a canister with 15 minutes of
oxygen for the two operators of the boat in the
event the boat was to capsize.
There are seven classes in OSS racing that
include bigger and faster boats. Some of the
twin engine boats, Allen said, could reach
speeds of 160 mph.
Allen and his wife Lou Anne own the boat.
Lou Anne is the chief of operations during a
race and operates the radio. Her job is to pass
on information about the race's competitors
and the conditions of the race circuit.
Matt Jones, from Springfield, Illinois, pilots


the boat. His wife Tera is also part of the
onshore team during the race. When not
racing, Matt is an F-16 pilot for the Illinois
National Guard.
The Screaming Eagle requires two men to
operate it during the 50-mile race. Allen
operates the throttle, trim and tabs as Matt
steers the craft through a series of turns and
straightaways.
The Pickwick race, Allen said, was set on a
difficult track with six left-hand turns and one
right-hand turn. The race is ten laps on the
five-mile semi-oval track.
Allen said that in the early days of Off Shore
racing the boats would start near the shore,
race 50 miles out to sea and then back to
shore. Now that it has becoming a spectator
sport the races have been set in areas where
people can gather to watch the boats race.
Starting the year out with a win, Allen said,
was the best way to start this season.
"This was a great win for us," Allen said
about winning the first race of the year.
In addition to the first place trophy to put
with Allen's growing number of accolades of
his racing days, there was a cash purse of
$4500. Allen also crossed the finish line first
so he was given the checkered flag as a
memento of the occasion.
With this win, the Screaming Eagle can start
out collecting a good many points. Like their
sisters on land, OSS operates on a point
system similar to Nextel Cup auto racing.
"I feel this year is going to be a good year


for us. Half the battle is finishing all of the
races and getting those points," Allen said.
Allen and Matt finished second in the OSS
Nationals last year, but managed to pull out a
win in the OSS World competition.
The pair is also the boats maintenance crew
and perform the entire mandatory upkeep
needed to keep a high performance marine
engine in tiptop shape. Allen is an avid
supporter of Mercury racing products and has
nothing but high praise for their engines.
"This engine we are now racing was raced
last year and has about 50 hours on it and runs
perfect," Allen said. That's a lot to say about
an engine that runs 95 percent of the time at
full throttle.
Ahead for the Screaming Eagle and her crew
are races through October. The next race will
be in Fort Myers May 19-21.
June 9-11, OSS will race in San Juan, Puerto
Rico. That race will be sponsored by Winston
Cup Racing and is expected to draw a crowd
of about 150,000.
Where the OSS Nationals will be held has
not been decided, but the World Cup Race
will be in Destin in November.
Some of the races may be broadcast over
some of the sports networks, Allen said.
So be on the lookout for Allen's Screaming
Eagle, especially in the Puerto Rico and
Destin races.

OSS races go to the web at

Seminole Ramlins
By Jack Wingate

We had a great week on Bream from a great many directions. A
great catch of Bream came from up river above Bainbridge on Crickets
and lower down river near
Faceville landing another big &
catch came on crickets. 2 9
limits in fact, then usin Beetle
Spins on Kirklands Creek i
another enormous catch of -,
Bream came to the dock. ,
Then Mrs. Betty Hobbs brought -
in 12 dinner plate sized from a i
ideae" a. hole" she calls it.
We have also had at.least 8
limits of Perch taken on Beetle
Spins this week. Some %%ere
big and some hand size. The
color of the Beetle Spin is
Yellow on Black. A truly nice
color for Seminole, Flint Fork
of course.
Pain Martit-Wells made a cast with her favorite lure and came up
with a 3 -? lb. Bass and a 4 lb. Bass on the same lure and Steven was
able to net them both before they tore off.
We have pics of the McIntosh Brothers, Brad & Tyler of
Chattahoochee with a couple of whoppers. One at 8 ? lb. and one at 5
lb. Good to see brothers fishen together.
Steve Meadows won the 5 Flags Pensacola Saterday Fish Out out of
Wingdtes. Bill Myreek had Big Fish with 6.5 lb., Charles Floyd had
the Sunday with 6.8 lb. Their Big Fish was a 3.7 lb. Not the best, but
the water levels keep changing.


RFM hosts Grandparents' Day on May Day


Work began early
Wednesday morning for the
students at Robert F. Munroe
Day School. The campus was
transformed into an outdoor
patio for a picnic lunch on the
front lawn. A tent was set up
for the Bar B Que buffet
provided by Banjo's, and tables
were decorated with colored
cloths and potted, flowering
plants.
The musical program began
in the, J. Byron and Isabel Suber
Athletic Complex at 11:00, with
a welcome and pledge to the
flag. Grades first through fifth
entertained a packed gym with
songs relating to "Growing Up!
At Munroe." Mr. Ric
Edmiston presented his second
spring May Day as he
accompanied the performers
with the guitar.
The emcees were Audrey
Thomas and Sara Green. The
traditional fourth grade May
Pole dance was done to the tune
of "You're a Grand Ole Flag."
Each grade sang, musical
interludes performed by Ashley
King, Mollie Edwards, and
Kaitlyn Sirmons separated the


acts. Ashley played "Gypsy
Fire" on the piano, while Mollie
played "Downright Cute,"and
Kaitlyn played "Midnight
Rhapsody."
The highlight for many came
as "The Rapid Fingers Guitar
Ensemble"and "The Lionic
Recorder Band and Chorus"
played. These groups joined
to present "Can You Feel the
Love" and "When the Saints
Come Marching In." Dr.
Roger Duncan of Stubbs Music
Center from Tallahassee and the
Munroe music teacher, Mr.
Edmiston, direct the two groups
respectively. Dr. Duncan gives
private lessons each week at the
school.
The finale was a humorous,
original piece entitled "We'll
Be In Sixth Grade" which was
set to the tune of "We are the
Champions." This was sung by
the fifth grade.
The luncheon followed the
performance where over six
hundred people, ranging in age
from less than a year to
octogenarians, shared perfect
weather for a picnic.

Marissa Kenon is graduating at the top of her small class.



C-P valedictorian puts



bad decisions behind


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
Marissa Kenon is probably not your a typical
teenager. At 17 years old she isn't interested in
partying, today's fashions don't occupy her
thoughts, music is on the back burner, her cell
phone is only used for important calls, and
preparing for her future is at the top of her list of
things to do.
Next Wednesday night Kenon will graduate from
Carter-Parramore Academy at the top of her class:
valedictorian. There will only be six people in the
class but that doesn't matter to Kenon, who
sometimes seems wise beyond her years.
Four years ago, Kenon said, she was in academic
trouble at James A. Shanks Middle School. "I
made some bad decisions, I selected the wrong
crowd to hang out with and they were bringing me
down," she said. Her focus was on everything but
school.
"In elementary school, I made As and Bs. At
Shanks, after the first semester, my report card
looked like a flag, I had so many Fs," she said.
That's when she made a decision. Kenon, without
the knowledge of her new-found friends, quietly
went to Rosalyn Smith, the school principal and
asked if she could transfer to another school.
"Mrs. Smith was very nice when I told her why I
wanted to leave. She signed my papers and said she
was happy that I was the one who had made my
own decision," Kenon said.
From Shanks, Kenon went to Greensboro High
School and her grades improved almost instantly.
Her grandmother worked at Greensboro
Elementary School and took her to school each
day. But she wanted to get a job after school and
Greensboro was too far away. She completed the
year there and looked at other options.
In 10th grade, she moved to Carter-Parramore
Academy. There, she said, she found "A School
Called Hope"and a place where felt at home.
"It was just a good feeling when I got there. The
classes were small (no more than 10-15 students)
and the teachers were able to give me all the time I
needed. You could talk to the teachers at CPA


Support for
Alzheimer's caregivers
a phone call away
Research shows that nearly half of
adults, age 85 and older, may have
Alzheimer's disease or some other
form of dementia and as many as
50% of dementia caregivers
experience depression making
them the most distressed of the
caregiver population.
Add to this, the fact that services
are often limited in rural counties
and you have the formula for why
low-cost, accessible education and
support services are so vital to this
population.
The Alzheimer's Rural Care
Healthline or 'ARCH' program was
created to meet this need. The
program, which is completely free to
rural caregivers, helps people caring
for loved ones with Alzheimer's
disease and other forms of memory
loss called 'dementia'. Through
community partners, like the
Gadsden County Extension Office
and the Gadsden County Health
Department, the free program will
give information and education that
will help rural caregivers develop
skills to help them provide better
care and deal with the stress that
being a caregiver can bring on.
Caregivers get all the benefits of a
support group program via
telephone.
The telephone support consists of
12 weekly sessions, including seven
group sessions on relaxation,
problem-solving skills and stress
management, and five individual
sessions to allow caregivers to work
on their personal caregiving goals.
The program also deals with
common caregiver issues like:
giving medicines, dealing with
agitated or aggressive behavior,
safety and wandering issues and
talking with your doctor.
If you, or someone you know of is
taking care of a person with
Alzheimer's disease, memory loss or
dementia, please call ARCH toll-
free at (1-866-778-2724) for more
information.


about school work and other problems. I remember
I was having trouble with Biology and because of
my teacher, Mr. Homer Gary, I was able to get the
concepts because of the extra time he was able to
spend with me. He broke it down to the simplest of
terms so that I could understand," she said.
Kenon said that she was so pleased at CPA she
even became involved in school activities. "I was
Miss CPA in the 10th grade," she said.
Representing the school as the queen was
important because she was among people she was
comfortable with and who wanted the same things
in life that she wanted: success.
"I lost touch with my old friends when I left
Shanks," she said.
She's too busy for a lot of friends anyway. "I
work at Common Sense everyday from 3:30 to 8,
and on Saturdays I work from 9 a.m to 3 p.m. I
also work at the Golden Falcon Convenience Store
as a cashier and train other cashiers," she said.
Working keeps her busy, but her mother has
made it clear she can cut back anytime she wants to
if the hours she works become too much. "It feels
good to work. I like to work because I feel I'm
preparing myself for the world. Why not do
something that will help you later?" she asked.
In her spare time, Kenon likes to write poetry.
She already has one poem posted on the internet on
Poetry.com called "Why Lord?" She find time to
do a few teenage things. "I like going to the
movies, but that and talking on the phone only
happen on the weekends I'm not into a lot of that
and I rarely date," she said.
Her immediate plans are to attend Tallahassee
Community College for the first two years and
transfer to Florida A & M University and earn a
degree in business. "I will commute to school for at
least the first year because I still want to spend
time with my grandmother, Letha White," Kenon
said. Her mother, Lisa White, is also happy that her
daughter made the decision to commute the first
year.
"We all agreed that TCC and FAMU is best for
me, I'm not ready to leave (home) completely yet,"
she said.

Chief Chad Caldwell
announced today that School
Resource Officer Lonnie M.
Wells has been awarded Officer
of the Year for 2005.
Chief Caldwell hastily admits
that Ptl. Wells has surely proved
that he is worthy of such an
award.
Wells, who is assigned to
Berkeley Middle School, has
done an outstanding job, both at
the school and for the town in
general.
Wells makes it a point to speak
and greet each student that he
comes in contact with. This
action has led to a tremendous
rapport that shows in his day-to-
day activities. His favor for
respect is felt throughout the
school and he is a welcomed
sight.
Wells retired from the Navy and
has been with the department for
almost two years. Most of that
has been spent in an educational
environment.
His assets were greatly
appreciated last year during the
department's Direction fo
Success summer camp.
Chief Caldwell states that Wells
was elected by his co-workers at
a departmental meeting. Wells is
a very dependable officer who is
well liked throughout the
community.
Caldwell goes on to say that he
hopes Wells stays with the
department for many years to
come.
Ptl. Lonnie Wells resides with


his wife, Gwendolyn and
daughter Deja in Moncks Comer.
They have a son, Lonnie, Jr. who
resides in California.
Born in Quincy, Wells moved
throughout the world courtesy of
the United States Navy.
He acknowledges his family for
his accomplishments, mostly his
mother and father who first
brought discipline into his life.
He is the son of the late Rev.
James Wells and Hazel Wells of
Quincy. His wife is the former
Gwendolyn Shaw.
Ptl. Wells was given this award
during the Moncks Comer
council meeting recently.

Sheriff to get 30 new patrol cars


Only 5 of current
fleet have less than

150,000 miles
by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

Vehicles at the Gadsden County
Sheriffs Office are so bad that
only about five have fewer than
150,000 miles on them.
The bill for keeping them on the
road comes to about $6,800 per
month.
"These cars are on the road in
12-hour shifts. If the deputy's
post is in Midway and a call
comes in from Greensboro, they
will go and help. That's the
procedure. You're talking about
driving from here to Nashville,"
said Bob Smith who helps with
auto maintenance at the garage.
"We need new cars, definitely,"
said Sheriff Morris Young.
During the most recent meeting


of the Board of County
Commissioners,
Young informed the board that
he has worked out a deal to add
30 new vehicles to the fleet,
beginning in September.
"The GCSO has a critical need
for replacement of certain
vehicles within our current fleet.
There has never been a
continuous replacement plan for
vehicles in the past." Young said.
The plan calls for leasing 20
vehicles this year, adding. 10
vehicles the second year, five
vehicles in the thrid year, and 20
vehicles in the fourth year to help
maintain fleet size, then five
vehicles per year in following
years.
"The plan we have is actually a
very good plan. It is the same one
used by the Public Works
Deaprtment. If we choose not the
lease the cars, we can buy them
for a dollar at the end of the lease
term," Young said.
He said the plan will save

money in the long run, and insure
that there are safe and reliable
vehicles on the road.
The vehicles, which should
arrive in late September or early
October, will be 2007 models
instead of 2006 unless there is a
major change (decrease) in
pricing. The Ford Crown
Victorias will come off the
assembly line in June 2006.
Young said the new vheicles
will increase the morale of patrol
deputies.
"These cars are their offices. In
order for them to do their jobs
well, we need to give them the
equipment they need. When
you're on patrol, a decent car is
your equipment," he said.,
Funds for the new cars will
come from the sheriff's budget
and capital outlay funds. "The
commissioners will only be
giving us about $16,000, the rest
will come from our budget,"
Young said.


Accolades occupy Chattahoochee Commission



City Clerk Gayle Lanier, Councilman James Atkins honored


By BYRON SPIRES
Times Staff Writer


Accolades were the key function of this month's
City of Chattahoochee council meeting.
City clerk Gayle Lanier has obtained the
distinction of Master Municipal Clerk from the
International City Clerk's Association.


Lanier was presented a plaque
manager Lee Garner for
accomplishment.


and a pin by city
her outstanding


This is the highest designation of the organization,
Garner said. There are fewer that 500 MMCs world-
wide.
Also, councilman Chris Moultry, on behalf of the
Crawford-Moultry Funeral Home, presented
councilman James Atkins a plaque for his 15 years
of service on the council.
In other business:
* Garner advised the council that a public meeting
would be held by Gadsden County June 1 at 7 p.m.
at Chattahoochee City Hall. The public meeting is in


reference to the county visioning program.
* Garner reported that the cell tower' to be
constructed on city property would begin
construction within the next ten days.
* According to Garner the new library bids came in
over budget and the county is ,now reviewing the
project.
* Moultry 'informed the council that he would be
scheduling a meeting soon with the residents of
Happy Town to discuss the future of the Southside
School facility.


* Council member Jerry Wynn addressed recent
noise complaints by citizens regarding loud radios
and boom boxes.
Wynn said several citations have been issued
because of the excessive noise and that he would
like a sign at the city limits to inform travelers that
the noise ordinances of the city are being enforced.
* This was the first meeting for the council after
last month's city elections. Council members
Atkins, Wynn and Gene Morgan retained their seats.


Banks


Continued from Page 1

Taylor said that in January she
had voted on the prevailing side
to keep the city manager. At that
time she felt she needed to give
him a few months to make some
changes. Those changes, she
said, did not come. .... ,
To assure that this motion
would take flight, Gay asked
McLean if this would be an
appropriate motion. McLean said
it would be.
When asked by commissioner
Derrick Elias if just listing the
financial problems would be
sufficient, McLean said that the
statement would put the manager
on notice of what the commission
felt was the problem.
McLean explained that the
process would include voting on
the resolution, which he said
would be at the next meeting.


Then Banks would have between
30-45 days to respond to the
resolution at a public hearing.
At that point, McLean said, the
commission could vote to
terminate or keep Banks.
Before voting, Elias said that he
did not think the timing was good
to terminate Banks. Elias'
reasoning was the current
forensic audit under way and the
city's current financial status.
"I tend'to want to see what the
forensic audit says," Elias said.
He also stated that the city had
run into difficulties hiring a
finance director and did not need
to be without a city manager as
well. He did not feel that
terminating Banks at this time
was a good idea.
Commissioner Keith Dowdell
warned the commission that any
actions they take could deeply
affect the city's future.
Dowdell asked McLean, who
was ultimately responsible for the
city's finances, in regard to


terminating Banks because of the
financial status of the city.
McLean replied that the
commission held that
responsibility.
"Think about it," Dowdell said
just before the vote was taken.
Taylor, Cook and Gay voted for
the resolution, with Dowdell and'
Elias voting against the measure.
In other business:
The commission heard a
report from'" Quincyfest
committee member Alice DuPont
on the successful event held in
downtown Quincy Saturday.
Dupont said that about 5,000


people attended the event. ,
Mayor Taylor praised the
committee for a job well done. "I
salute you for what you have
done," Taylor said to the
committee.
Banks informed the
commission that the city is
starting an aggressive collection
campaign of delinquent utility
bills. The city has about'$1.5
million in uncollected bills. Of
those,. $700,000 worth have
accumulated since 2000, interim
city finance director Christie
Joyner told commissioners. A
commission workshop to discuss


the collection policy of the city
was set for May 22 at 5 p.m.
* The fire contract with the
county is still in the negotiation
stages, McLean told the
commissioners. He said the
negotiations were going well.
The county and the city are
working on some very innovative
ideas that should help all
residents.
* Building and planning director
Kirk Tanis informed the
commission that plans to annex
80 acres between Circle Drive
and Strong Road are under way.
The land is for residential


development.
* McLean asked that the
commission set a time for an
executive session to decide how
they will handle a case involving
former police chief Rodney
Moore. McLean said that there is
a pending trial set for a
discrimination case involving
More and the City of Quincy.
The commission will hold that
executive session next month.
.* The commission will have a
workshop concerning their
upcoming contract with OMI.
OMI operates the city's water
and sewage systems.

Immigration

Continued from Page 1

or gather their crops. Most of this type of work is labor
intense and involves long, hard days.
Ironically the American public demands these very
products and most must be produced or harvested by
hand. As an example, look in your own refrigerator or
kitchen cabinet.
It doesn't just stop there.
Someone must wash the dishes at a restaurant, clean
rooms at a hotel, maintain yards, drive the nails that hold
your home together-and the list goes on and on.
There are an estimated 12 million illegal immigrants in
this country; most of those immigrants are filling these
types of jobs.
Also last week we learned that local employers are
diligently trying to adhere to the current immigration
laws in order to fill their work force.
It is the "Catch 22" situation many employers find
themselves in every day.
As a way of understanding the problem better, it is a
good idea to hear what the public thinks. While there is
no way to have every possible opinion, especially when
it concerns an issue as controversial as illegal
immigration, following are a few opinions and possible
solutions:
Chris Konke has a lot of experience with the current
immigration laws.
She has both a son-in-law and a daughter-in-law who'
are immigrants. Her father-in-law also immigrated to
'this country.
"America needs to support immigration, but not illegal
immigration. Hispanics should not enjoy a special
advantage just because of the weight of numbers or the
geographical advantage," are Kohnke's feelings
concerning immigration.
Konke's daughter-in-law is currently going through the
process of becoming an American citizen. Her son-in-
law is now a citizen of this country after a long and
involved process. Both, she said, went about becoming
citizens the right way and did not enter this country
illegally.
Her father-in-law immigrated to this country in the
1920s. He was proud to be an American citizen. He
spoke English and prided himself on not speaking
German, his native tongue, after he entered this country.
Her aunts and uncles by marriage would soon follow
him. They were Jewish, and the Nazi occupation of
Europe drove many Jews to this country.
There was a problem: America had a quota at the time
and many Jewish families were diverted to Cuba. Some
stayed there as long as two years before they could enter
this country.
Her feelings are simple. If you are in this country
illegally, then you need to go to the back of the line and
start at the beginning of becoming and American citizen.
"This is all political," C. J. Holmes said. He blames
the Republican Party for the current dilemma.
Holmes referred to the Reagan Amnesty in the early
1980s as one culprit in today's immigration problems.
He feels that the current administration embraces that
.same ideal.
Holmes said that the immigration problem started way
back when the west was being settled and the rail road
moguls need cheap labor.
As a descendant of an Ellis Island immigrant, Holmes
said he could remember his grandfather talking about
having to wait until the immigration office called for
him and his family before they could immigrate to this
country.
Holmes, now retired, had his own problems with
immigration back in his working days.
In the fifties he was a die maker and found himself in
competition with die makers coming over from Europe
willing to work for less money. The end result, however,
he said, backfired when the company owners found out
the cheaper-labor employees did not know how to work
the machinery.
The problem now, Holmes said is when illegal
immigrants get to this country they need a job. Once
they get that job, often for lower wages, they are stuck.
Employers don't have to give them raises because
there are millions right behind them wanting the jobs,,
Holmes said.
Holmes solution: There are already laws on the books
that are not being enforced. Enforce them.
One man, who asked to remain anonymous, knows
first hand what is going on at the frontlines of illegal
immigration. He lives in Arizona near the Mexican


border at the heart of the illegal immigration portal. He
said the problem was growing by leaps and bounds.
Ranchers, he said, who were sympathetic to the
immigrant's plight in the early years were now being
overwhelmed. Food and water are being stolen from
their homes. Cattle are missing and it is not unusual now
to hear of vehicles being stolen.
The reason, he said, stems from a rumor that America
was going to have another illegal immigrant amnesty
period. Which, by the way, is not true or at least not in
the makings.
His solution would be to patrol the borders better and
use some of the scientific satellite equipment now
deployed in Iraq to guard America's borders.
Another man who wishes to remain anonymous as
well travels in the southwest a lot and has seen the influx
of illegal immigrants first hand.
There is a whole underground of illegal immigrants
and ways into this country, he said. They can provide
you with any documentation you need and it looks like
the real thing, he is quick to tell you.
Another problem that few Americans think about is
those workers who provide fake documentation to gain
employment. His question is, what is happening to the
money that is taken from their checks every week under
a fake social security number?
Under the current system it can take as long as three
years to catch up with a fake ID.
Employers must deduct taxes, social security and
Medicare from an employee's check. Then they turn
around and match the social security deduction.
Even if you figure someone making minimum wage
and then multiply that times only half the estimated
illegal immigrants in this country, the dollars reach well
into the billions in taxes pumped into the federal reserves
that will never be used as a benefit for the person who
paid them in.
"It is a fee we charge illegal immigrants to work in this
country," he said.
Our southern border with Mexico consists in many
places of three strands of barbed wire.
Illegal Mexicans cross our borders every day, he said.
They are just picked up and deported back to Mexico.
They do it three times and their luck changes and they
get in for good, he said. There is a flaw in the.system:
other illegals can cross the border (not Mexican) and
they are detained, given a court date and released.
There is another observation this gentleman made.
Back in 1988 and 1989, if someone was in this country
illegally and could prove they had worked for a couple
of years they were given green cards. This allows
foreign workers to work in this country legally. There
was no reconciliation required.
The next year was the worst year in history for
agriculture. The reason: once the workers became legal
they got better paying jobs.
His solution: fix the system, it ain't working.
United States Congressional Representative, District
2, Allen Boyd (D) Tallahassee understands the dilemma
created by the illegal immigration issue.
Boyd sits on the front line of the political part of this
issue. It is congress that must ultimately decide what
direction this country will take on how to deal with
illegal immigration.
"It is an important issue that directly affects Gadsden
County," Boyd said in a recent interview.
Boyd said that the only way to get to a solution was to
understand the issue. He sees it as a two-headed
monster. One head was the border security. It is
imperative, Boyd said, that we protect our borders.
The other head is what to do with the illegal
immigrants in this country searching for work.
They are crossing the borders looking for work
because we have employers who find themselves with
jobs they cannot fill, Boyd said.
Both parts of this monster affect our economy, Boyd
said.
There are plenty of issues and opinions about how to
deal with the problem. Theireal answer, Boyd said, lay
in creating a "good faith" solution.
That he said would require some "good faith"
negotiating, and a bipartisan effort on the side of
politicians, something Boyd said was hard to come by in
Washington.
Boyd does see a slight glimmer at the end of the
tunnel.
The Ted Kennedy/Larry Craig Senate bill that local
nurseryman George Hackney was in Washington
working on at the time of September 11, 2001, came to a
halt after the terrorist attacks. Boyd said he had
supported that bill.
The John McCain/ Ted Kennedy Senate bill, which


was similar to the Kennedy/Craig bill fell apart a few
weeks ago, Boyd said. The bill had some provisions for
guest workers and ways for illegal immigrants to
become American citizens.
Boyd said he voted against the House's immigration
reform bill back in December, because it did not have
any guest worker provisions.
Boyd said he liked the idea of the guest worker and
"you work at it" concepts in the senate bill and hoped
that a compromise bill could be worked out.
But he did not give it a lot of hope, at least for this
year.
"I'm not real optimistic that it will pass before
elections, Boyd said.
Although the illegal immigration falls more into the
federal legislative branch of government, Florida House
of Representatives, District 8, Curtis Richardson (D)
Tallahassee had this to say: "This is a two edged sword."
On one side, Richardson said, was the fact that so
many people were here illegally. On the other, however,
was the need for employees by businesses.
"This has proven to be an issue for Gadsden County,"
Richardson said.
Richardson said he did not think that immediate
deportation was the answer. But, he added, we welcome
immigrants, they just need to go through the legal
channels.
Thankfully, Richardson said, the federal government is

going to have to deal with this issue and come up with a
solution.
One problem however may linger out there for the
states. There has been some discussion about local and
state law enforcement agencies being involved in
policing possible new immigration laws.
"We will deal with that when we see it," Richardson
said.
United States Senator Bill Nelson (D) responded to a
request for a comment on the issue of illegal
immigration with this statement:
"All of us can agree the system is broken and needs to
be fixed. I believe the U.S. needs a smart, realistic plan
to address illegal immigration one that protects our
borders and ensures all immigrants play by the rules.
"To protect our borders, we need to use cutting-edge
technology, including unmanned aerial vehicles. And we
need to enforce our existing laws.
"We also need to create a guest worker program,
which provides a path to legal status for those who
qualify and play by the rules, and deports those who do
not.
'Playing by the rules means paying your taxes,
keeping a job and learning English."
No mater how you put this puzzle together, with
payrolls into the tens of millions of dollars this national
immigration issue is here for the long haul in Gadsden
County.

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

*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 VULUE, we make a small profit
and you get a great deal!
The best Part is we have family on the

Mother's Day is the day of the year that we stop to honor our mothers for all that they have done for us. In the United States,
S' Mother's Day al'.va, s occurs on the second Sunday in the nonth of May, as well as many other countries, such as Austria, Brazil,
a Switzerland, and Japan. In other parts of the world, Mother's Day occurs on different days, as the holiday's origin deveIoped
Sat different times in different regions of the world. The international day to honor the institution of motherhood is May11th.
As with thousands of other holidays and traditions known around the 'orld, the earliest Mother's Day celebrations were that of the Greeks
and Romans. In Greece, the day was celebrated in honor of the mother of all gods Cybele. In Rome, the same holiday was celebrated for the mother of their gods, Rhea. The
western tradition of Mother's Day in the United States was created by the works of three women, Julia Ward Howe and Anna Jarvis the elder, and her daughter Anna Jarvis. In
1870 Howe wrote the Mother's Day Proclamation, a statement requesting that the Civil War be put to an end in the name of a Mother's Day for Peace. Though she Julia first
conceived the idea for a Mother's Day it '. as never offi,:ally recognized. In the late 1850's, Anna Jarvis began using the idea as a Mother's Day of Work, to help improve
.sa.-iiain ;anditions:ri but this t..o did not bring the idea of a national Mother's Day to the country. It was her daughter, also named Anna, that finally brought the idea 'o nation-
al atientc.n, and in 19,14 President Woodrow Wilson declared the first official Mother's Day. Many nations followed suit, and what we know as Mother s Day was bom. Another
origin of the tradition came out of England in the 1700's when servants were freed for a period of time during the Easter season to go home and visit their "mother churches"
and family members. This tradition, not originally dedicated to honoring ones mother, had now become very similar to the May event in America, yet it falls on fourth Sunday
during Lent. This is a good example of how the holiday has many different origins simultaneously.
There are many ways-to honor your noth, ic ior im s holiday. One of the most popular ways is too give her flowers or a card. Mother's Day produces more mail and flower
orders than any other line of the year. Others take their mom's out to lunch, or shower them with gifts. One great way to celebrate Mother's Daj is just by telling your mom
that you love her. But whatever you decide to do i- he-r this year, remember Mother's Day is really about honoring your mother all year long

RFM's fifth grade visits Agrirama

The Robert F. Munroe fifth grade class visited the Georgia
Agrirama in Tifton, Georgia, in April to experience life in the
Wiregrass region of 1870 1910. The students spent the day work-
ing in designated areas of the farm, gristmill, sawmill, and at the
printing shop.
The morning began with a change of clothing for everyone. Work
shirts, hats, suspenders, and long skirts with aprons were the order
of the day. An adult who works at Agrirama year round supervised
each group.
Some of the boys, Andy Pitts, Gabe Jackson and McLane Edwards,
worked the old sawmill, while Vince Fioramanti, Zach Helms,
Andy Taylor, and Chris Crady were busy raking hay.
Hillary Flournoy and Callie Malone worked in the doctor's office,
and Ashley King Mollie Edwards, and Audrey Thomas "swept
yards." Dustin Watson and Bryce Clark made corn meal and grits.
Justine and Sara Green worked the printing press, and other girls
worked in the traditional farmhouse sweeping and preparing the
noon meal for everyone. Among the cooks were Allison Holt,
Della Campbell, and Kaitlyn Sirmons.
Jean Dore is the fifth grade teacher. She and several parents
accompanied the class and were observers for the day.

chance to showcase some of its
notable student achievements:
district spelling bee champion,
second place district science
fair, and talented teachers.
The week began with a focus on
the community at large, followed
by Wednesday's "Bring Your

Story and Photo by Byron Spires
It is 'Click It or Ticket," time
This year's 'Click It or Ticket,'
campaign brought six cities, county and
state law enforcement agencies together
on the Gadsden County Courthouse
lawn.
The police car gathering last Thursday
morning is part of this month's statewide
crack down on drivers and passengers
who are not wearing their safety belts.
-Quincy, Chattahoochee, Gretna,
Greensboro, the Gadsden County's
Sheriff Department traffic division and


the Florida Highway Patrol were out to
show their support of the state's push to
make everyone "Buckle Up."
May is the month the state has set aside
to promote safety belt use.
On April 30, the 'Buckle Up In Your
Truck' campaign started and will end
Saturday, May 13. That campaign will be
followed by the 'Click it or Ticket'
campaign, which starts this Sunday, May
14, and ends June 4.
Everyone is required to wear a safety
belt when operating a motor vehicle in
Florida.
Florida Safety Belt Law according to
Florida Statute 316.614 states:


* "Restrained by a safety belt" means
being restricted by an appropriately
adjusted safety belt which is properly
fastened at all times when a motor
vehicle is in motion.
It is unlawful for any person:
* To \operate a motor vehicle in this
state unless each passenger under the age
of 18 years and the operator of the
vehicle are restrained by a safety belt or
by a child restraint device pursuant to s.
316.613, if applicable; or
* To operate a motor vehicle in this
state unless the person is restrained by a
safety belt.
* It is unlawful for any person 18 years


of age or older to be a passenger in the
front seat of a motor vehicle unless such
person is restrained by a safety belt when
the vehicle is in motion.
In addition the law requires that
children under the age of six must meet
the following requirements.
For children 3 years and younger, such
restraint device must be a separate carrier
or a vehicle manufacturer's integrated
child seat. For children aged 4 through 5
years, a separate carrier, an integrated
child seat, or a seat belt may be used.
Safety belt use has increased to a record
of 82 percent nationally in 2005,
however Florida lags behind those


numbers at 74 percent compliance.
Pickup truck occupants fall even further
behind at 62 percent compliance.
Failing to use a safety belt cannot only
cost you a fine, it can also cost you yoir
life or cost someone who is riding with
you their life.
In 2004 a total of 2,179 passenger
vehicle occupants died in traffic crashes
in Florida, and over 62 percent of those
killed were not wearing their safety belts
at the time of the crash.
So remember to 'Click It or Ticket.'
