see good in

Bush plan for

immigration

reform

By BYRON SPIRES
Times Staff Writer
Gadsden County's migrant
coordinator Maria Pouncey found
a lot of good in President George
Bush's plan to reform
immigration.
Pouncey, who works with many
Hispanics through her position in
the PAEC program, said "He is
trying to be fair and equitable,"
The need for immigration
reform, Pouncey said was evident
and needed to happen, although
finding a balance would be
difficult.
She liked the idea of a guest
worker program, which would
allow employees for the
agriculture industry. She also
liked the idea of allowing
workers in this country a way to
become American citizens.
The part about learning English
especially hit a chord with
Pouncey. Learning English,
Pouncey said, empowered
immigrants to get better jobs,
lead fuller lives and most
importantly to get an education.
"Education is the key," she
said.
Pouncey had one other valid
point about immigration.
"Remember, some of those
involved with 9-11 were in this
country legally," she said.
George Hackney, owner of
Hackney Nursery, like Pouncey
saw a lot of good points in the
speech. His problem, he said, was
putting the burden of proving
whether someone is legal or
illegal on the employee.
If there is an applicable way of
verifying the person is legal such
as the biometric technology Bush
mentioned Hackney said even
that obstacle could be overcome.
The real issue for Hackney is
seeing this type of reform making
it through congress. "I'm worried

Banks quits; Bogan hired


Bogan hired on

interim basis; Banks

gets 9 mos. severance

By BYRON SPIRES
Times Staff Writer
Quincy City Manager Willie Earl Banks is
resigning his position, and financial consultant Bill
Bogan will take his place on an interim basis.
A deal has been struck between Quincy's city
commission and Banks. The deal is the result of last
week's negotiations to relieves Banks of his job.
The commission started the process to fire Banks
by voting to create a resolution to terminate the city
manager's employment at that' meeting. The
terminating process could have taken 45 to 60 days.
As part of the deal Banks has agreed to step down
from his job as city manager effective May 30.
Banks, according to the negotiations discussed at
Tuesday night's special called meeting, will receive
nine months severance pay, his accumulated sick
and vacation time and the city will pay his lawyer's
fees. Banks had solicited the help of a lawyer in


negotiating with the city over his severance
agreement.
In return Banks resigns his post as city manager
and will waive all claims against the commission.
When asked by mayor Sherrie Taylor if he
approved of the terms of the agreement, Banks
responded, "I am in agreement with the terms of this
agreement."
Banks will receive the compensation in 26
payments over the next twelve months. He agreed to
the expanded payment plan, it was stated, because
he understood the financial situation the city
currently faces.
The negotiations had occurred over the past
several days city attorney Jack McLean said, and
the current agreement is a compromise by both sides
to allow the issue to end, and the city and Banks to
move forward from the issue.
Commissioner Andy Gay asked McLean how
severance agreements with past city managers had
been negotiated.
McLean said that in his tenure as city attorney two
managers had received severance pay. One, who
had a year's tenure, received seven months
severance pay and the other with six years tenure
had received twelve months severance pay.
Christie Joyner, interim finance director, was

Visioning: Moving Gadsden forward


County holding

workshops to get

input on handling

growth issues

by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
It's called the visioningg process" and it
is a state-mandated outlet for citizens in
different counties to provide input into
what their county will look like in the
future.
Gadsden County government leaders will
hold six workshops throughout the county
over the next several weeks to discuss this
process, future development and its effect


locally. The first workshop was held last
Thursday evening at the Board of County
Commissioners meeting room, and the
next meeting will take place this Thursday,
May 18, at 7 p.m. at the Gretna City Hall.
Other meetings will be held at 7 p.m. on
May 25 at the Havana Public Library, June
1 at the Chattahoochee Council Meeting
Room, June 8 at the West Gadsden High
School auditorium and June 22 at the
Department of Transportation meeting
room in Midway.
"The visioning plan will be used to
formulate future growth for the county,"
William McCord, Gadsden County
Growth Management Director, said at last
Thursday's meeting.
McCord began by introducing workshop
facilitator Carl Morrell, a consultant with
Optimum Enterprises, Inc. He explained
that the comprehensive plan sets in motion
what citizens need to know about growth


in their county.
"We won't all agree on everything all the
time; what we must figure out is how do
we move Gadsden County into the future,"
Morrell said. He explained that while
Gadsden may sit in a rural part of the state
right now, that will not always be the case
and that local citizens must begin to
formulate plans now.
"Florida is one of the fastest growing
states (in population) in the nation and
they keep coming everyday. We have to be
ready," he said. Ready means knowing
where infrastructure is needed and where
the majority want growth to occur.
"No matter how good the plan is, if the
public does not support it, it will fail," he
warned. He also urged citizens to be
positive about Gadsden County. "Promote
your county. If you want business
developers to come here, it's a job for all
of us," Morrell said.

Kris )dahowski, children's librarian at the Gadsden County Public Library in Quincy, reads to
her first young patrons just after the new facility on Pat Thomas Parkway opened Monday
morning. After weeks of placing books on shelves, making sure computers were up and running
and working out the inevitable glitches, they were ready for the public. "I like it here and I like to
read books," said Shemaiah Gilley, seven, one of the first young patrons. Gilley and two young
cousins came to the library with their aunt."We've got more space; that's the main thing,"
Odahowski said. The children's space has been divided into sections for pre-schoolers, school age
children and teens. There are eight computers at the south end of the building dedicated to
children. "Now they don't have to share space with adults," Odahowski said.


The topics of discussion included growth
and what it means to citizens. Doug Croley
said the county should be careful how it
grows and that for some people growth
could mean that the status remains the
same.
Citizens were asked to think about where
in the county they would most like to see
growth. A majority indicated that growth
in the western part of the county is
desirable.
Other topics discussed were:
*Priorities for economic development
*Preservation of open space
*Conservation lands, where and how
much
*Employment
*Housing
*Mixed use housing
*Efficient transportation

"I couldn't be

more pleased,"

Ed Dixon says

by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
The 2006 Florida legislative
session was good for Gadsden
County, as lawmakers set aside
more than $5.66 million for
projects in Gadsden County.
At the close of business on May
5, both the senate and house of
representatives passed a
whopping 71.3 billion dollar state
budget.
"I couldn't be more pleased.
We got what we asked for. I am
overjoyed. Let's just hope the
governor signs off on it," Ed
Dixon, chairman of the Board of
County Commissioners, said.
In addition to thanking Sen. Al
Lawson, Rep. Curtis Richardson,


and Rep. Marti Coley (who make
up the local legislative
delegation) Dixon credits the
lobbying firm the county hired
last year. "We invested $33,000
in lobbyists and look what we got
as a direct return," he said of the
funds coming to Gadsden
County.
"Gadsden County did very well
in local projects," Sen. Al
Lawson said. The following
projects were funded:
*Rosedale Association
Improvement- $100,000
*Gad. County Water & Sewer
Infrastructure Project-
$350,000
*Gretna Inflow/Infiltration
Collection System--$500,000
*Havana Loop Connection
North Water Main-$17,500
*Havana Sewer Expansion-
$135,000
*Gadsden County

Civic clubs honor local law enforcement officials with luncheon


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
Officer Mike Fish of the Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission was named the
:Gadsden County Officer of the
Year Tuesday during the Law
*Enforcement Luncheon. The
event is sponsored annually by
the Quincy Kiwanis Club, Quincy
'Pilot Club and the Quincy Rotary
,Club.
"It has been an honor and a
privilege working in Gadsden
County. I wish I could cut this up
and give everyone of them
(fellow nominees) a piece," Fish
said.
Other nominees were: Officer
Troy Gilyard, Quincy Police
Department; Lt. Levon Jackson,
Gadsden County Sheriff's Office;
Trooper Michael Jason King,
Florida Highway Patrol; and Lt.
John Ulm, Havana Police
Department.
Fish, a 12-year veteran of the
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission, was
nominated by Lt. Larry Parker.
He has been recognized for his
proactive approach to educating
the public and is active in the area
of boating safety, illegal night
hunting and federal waterfowl
enforcement. He also teaches
boating safety in Gadsden County
public schools. Officer Fish
served in the hurricane-damaged
areas of Florida and Mississippi.
Officer Gilyard was nominated
by Chief of Police Gerald
McSwain who cited Gilyard's 69
felony violation cases, 82 percent
of which were solved, and the

It's going to cost more for rural
residents to take their household
garbage to one of the five rural
waste sites scattered through the
county. Starting May 22, when
the new permits are issued, they
will cost the same but will expire
in six months rather than one
year.
"The program is operating at a
$200,000 deficit. The increase
would only generate $110,000
and that will not touch the
deficit," said Marlon Brown,
county manager. Customers,
however, will now have a four
bag limit.
In May 2005 the county began
staffing the sites and requiring
permits for citizens to dispose of
household garbage. The original
fee was set at $50 per year, per
household and, according to
Robert Presnell, Public Works
director 1,095 permits were sold
generating $54,750.
The Solid Waste Committee
met and, Presnell said,

recovery of $69,000 in property.
He has investigated a wide
variety of cases including
burglaries, fraud, grand theft,
scams, computer fraud, city
utility theft, meter tampering,
robbery, and sexual battery.
Trooper King is a certified first
aid instructor and was chosen
recently as the Quincy District
Trooper of the Month. He
received a commendation from
the Gadsden County Sheriff's
Office for assisting with a murder
investigation in the Gretna area
that resulted in the arrests of three
suspects.
Sheriff Young nominated Lt.
Jackson for his exceptional


leadership abilities, his love of
country and community, and his
willingness to go the extra mile.
Jackson, who was injured in the
line of duty in 1997, underwent
extensive rehabilitation.
Havana Police Chief Brian
Mitchell nominated Havana
Police Department's Lt. Ulm. An
officer since 1996, Ulm was cited
for researching local complaints
of illegal bingo games and
gambling. He teamed up with the
state attorney's office to obtain
search warrants and to coordinate
evidence collections, including
six bank accounts and the seizure
of nearly $10,000 from bingo
accounts, and $8,000 in property.


Jim Murdaugh, director of the
Pat Thomas Law Enforcement
Academy, was the guest speaker
I i U i U i ia I


unanimously approved a rate hike
recommendation of $100 per
household. Commissioners could
not agree on the $100
recommendation. The
compromise was the six month
$50 fee to allow people on fixed
income to get accustomed to the
increase. The fees would go from
$4 per month to $8 per month.
Presnell said he feels citizens
will pay the higher fee without
much fuss. "They're beating our
door down now to buy the
permits."
In unrelated matters,
commissioners tabled two items.
First, a request to allow the
county manager up to $500 for
expenditures deemed to be in the
public interest or needed for
public purpose. The county
currently does not have an
ordinance in place to spend funds
for miscellaneous purposes.
Brown said the money would be
used for items' such as plaques
and other incidentals.
Commissioners Sterling Watson
and Eugene Lamb said that while
they recalled the mentioning of


an ordinance, they wanted to see
the final version of the ordinance
before voting.
Secondly, a request from James
Burnett for a minor subdivision
was tabled until staff could
determine whether the homes
currently in a minor subdivision
adjacent to Burnett's property are
modular homes or mobile homes.
Commissioners said the kind of
homes currently on the property
would make a difference.
In other business,
commissioners:
* Agreed to request a land use
change from the Department of
Community Affairs to rezone
three-plus acres in Concord from
commercial to rural residential.
* Approved a proclamation for
May 14-20 as EMS Week in
Gadsden County.
* Approved a new non-profit
funding agreement.
* Approved rescheduling the
special meeting/workshop for
June 2006 and schedule a
tentative budget workshop and
special meeting/workshop for
July 17.

at the luncheon. Having been the
recipient of several Officer of the
Year awards himself, Murdaugh
said all of the nominees should be
extremely proud of themselves.
"The trust put in you by your
fellow officers for such an honor
indicates how much you are
thought of by them," he said.
In his address Murdaugh said
the badge that each law
enforcement officer wears is a
testimony to their lives, and
presented an acronym that
supported this.
"'B' is for bravery. We expect
our officers to be brave, but in
most academy classes we will
have someone who knows it (law
enforcement) is not for them," he
said. "'A' is for attitude. None of
the people here want an officer
with a bad attitude. 'D' is for
determination. The best example
I can think of is Sheriff Morris
Young opening up those cold
case files. 'G' is for God. There
has to be a belief in a higher
power. 'E' is for ethics. You

He went on to say, "If you take
out the letters 'G' and 'E,' you
have the word 'bad' and that's a
bad officer and a name that none
of us wish to have. A good officer
must have God and ethics."
"All of these men are to be
commended for the work that
they do on our behalf," said
Caroline Fallis, president of the
Quincy Pilot Club, who presented
the plaque to Fish and certificates
to the other nominees.

In an article in last week's
edition of the Times the victim of
an automobile accident, Kelly
Ovelia Shiver, was referred to as
a woman in the headline.
Because the Florida Highway

the victim. We apologize for the

Wanted, abandoned run down old houses


By BYRON SPIRES
Times Staff Writer

Tired of looking out your
window and seeing a "run-
down," empty house next door?
Quincy Code Enforcement
Officer Tom Murray is the
person you need to call.
The city of Quincy is
"cracking down" on the
property owners who are
leaving them in disrepair,
Murray said, hoping to
alleviate what he calls a
"nuisance in our
neighborhoods".
The actions come as part of
an effort to beef up code
enforcement ordinances, which
includes changes such as
removing fallen trees and
lowering grass levels from 18
inches to 12 inches on
overgrown, vacant lots. Murray
is also issuing notices,
warnings and, when necessary,
citations for neglectful property
owners.
The city's code ordinances,
Murray said, are designed to
help maintain property values
for neighborhoods by keeping
them clean and free of debris.
"If this city is to survive and
attract new residents and
businesses, handling these
abandoned properties is
critical," Murray said, adding
neighborhoods need to regain a

intentions are to help
communities by enforcing
city's codes.


Much of the new efforts to
clean up properties stem from
problems in the past with
absentee property owners not

are going to start publishing
these violations," Murray said.
Additional plans are in the
making right now, as well, to
tighten these ordinances
concerning malicious and
absentee landlords plans that
will help keep property clean
and healthy, Murray said.
Another problem that has
brought on the recent
crackdown Murray said is
occupied, but ill-kept rental
property.
The city's code states that
accumulated junk, trash or
other debris such as furniture,
refrigerators freezers, cans or
containers scattered over a
premise is considered-a ..code
violation. Tenants in the past
have been afraid to come

As code enforcement officer
for the city, Murray said he
" intends to see that these
properties are brought into
compliance with city codes as

Madison stays mayor, Barber



still mayor pro-tem in Midway


By BYRON SPIRES
Times Staff Writer

Delores Madison won her
third two-year term as mayor of
Midway at last week's city
council meeting.
The council nominated both
Madison and Mayor Pro Tem
Ella Barber for the mayor spot,
but Madison managed to slide
by on a four to three vote to
continue her reign over
Gadsden County's fastest-
growing city.
Council members James
Hinson, Mae Cato, Louis Parker
'and' Madison voted to retain
Madison as mayor. Council
members Patrick Johnson,
Chuck Willis and Barber voted
against Madison and later for
Barber as mayor.
Barber retained her position
as mayor pro tem with a four to
three vote. Parker, Johnson,
Barber and Willis all voted to
retain Barber as Midway's
mayor pro tem.
The seven-member council
elects a mayor every two years
during the meeting that
immediately follows the city's
elections.
This year, because of a
previous vote to extend city
council members' terms to three
years, Midway held no city
elections.
The decision was related to a
request by Gadsden County
Supervisor of Elections Shirley
Knight to hold all city elections
in the county on the same day.
Midway's election date was
originally scheduled for the fall,
thus the council chose to extend
officials' terms in order to meet
the new date.
Madison's first meeting of
her third term bogged down
almost immediately.
Chaos reigned, as it took
nearly 45 minutes for council
members to set the agenda. The
confusion stemmed from a


I

discrepancy over whether or not
the council should place a walk-
on item on the agenda. The item
pertained to a resolution that
would establish a Citizen's
Advisory Task Force (CATF)
and its bylaws.
City Manager Paul Piller
said the CATF had already been
established in order to update
the city's records and as part of
the Community Development
Block Grant (CDBG)
application process.
Council members finally
agreed to place the issue on the
consent agenda, and the item
passed unanimously later in the
meeting.
Amid a room full of
mumbling and talking, Madison
plowed ahead and eventually
got the agenda set only to find
the meeting bogged down again
over the use of the city's fire
station facility for a youth
program on Sunday mornings.
The council eventually
approved the use of the facility,
but not before a heated debate
by the audience over the fees to
be charged for use. The youth
meetings will be held from 9


a.m. until 11 a.m.
In other business:
Mayor pro-tem Ella Barber
had concerns over the listing on
the council member's name
plates. This issue took about
three minutes -of an already-
long meeting. The name plates
list each council member as "at
large," but Barber contended
that only two members of the
council represented the entire
city, according to the city's
charter.
Council members James
Hinson and Mae Cato represent
the city at large, but the
remaining members simply
represent their respective
districts, which total five. She
said she did not understand why
the placards listed all of the
council members as "at large."
City manager Paul Piller said
that he understood the "at large"
designation to mean the council
members were elected at large
by the city. He added, however,
that the placards had been that
way during his tenure as city
manager. No decision was made
concerning the placards.
The council approved the

Be prepared for Hurricanes


Armadillo help in on the way


'This is National Hurricane Preparedness
Week. By now, if you have an ounce of


common sense, no one should have to tell you
how very important it is to do the things
necessary to take care of yourself until help
arrives in the event of a hurricane hitting our
area.
It has been made as plain as the nose on your
face that you have to be able to care for your
own needs for at least 72 hours. In the event of
a category four or more hurricane you will
need to be able to take care of yourself and
your family for even longer. Hurricanes
usually hit more than one place at once and
resources are spread thin, so don't start
looking for help to come riding in as soon as
'the storm passes. It's probably not going to
happen.
You only need look at what happened to the
people to the west of us just a few short
months ago when Hurricane Katrina came
ashore. Had the storm come ashore a few
hundred miles to the east, it could very well
have been us caught unprepared and living as
best we could. Power was out for months and
many people lost homes, but if the people
whose homes were not destroyed had canned
goods, dried food and water on hand, the much
needed and sparse resources would have been
more available to help those who lost
everything.
I cannot forget the people in south Florida
who stood in lines in the sweltering heat in
asphalt parking lots waiting for hours to get
water, ice and and MREs (Meals Ready to
Eat). Regarding ice, yes, the governmental
agencies and Red Cross are sympathetic, but
food and water is something people should
have stocked up on early. They could have
bought charcoal, bleach, batteries, and other
essentials. Most of them were living in their
homes without power, but they had a roof over
their heads.
We have become too dependent on
government and not enough on self-reliance.
There are a lot of things we can do for
ourselves to prepare for hurricanes. To be
honest, I don't know what will happen in
Gadsden County if we are hit by a hurricane.
Public officials have put together some plans,
but from where I sit those plans are far, far
from being adequate.
I fear that we think Leon County is going to
ride to the rescue. Leon County, my friends,
will take care of Leon County first. Oh, they'll
say they want to help, but when the chips are
down we will be on our own. Case in point,
last year when Hurricane Dennis dropped a
few inches of water and a few trees and power
lines were downed, about 100 people went to
East Gadsden High School for shelter.
People, some old and ill, sat at cafeteria


tables while cots lined the walls. By late
morning food that was supposed to be
delivered to the school was still on a truck
somewhere because the driver "couldn't find"
East Gadsden. With less than 200 people at the
shelter, people complained that they never got
food and one Red Cross worker told a woman
"this isn't a restaurant."
But if you can provide for yourself, you don't
have to be insulted.
There are a lot of people in our area who live
in mobile homes or substandard homes. Few,
if any, have a plan for evacuation. We have
one shelter that can withstand a category four
hurricane and that's at East Gadsden High
School. Provisions have been made to
transport the elderly and the infirm. What of
the rest of us?
When I hear people say they don't listen to
the news or read the newspapers because what
they hear or read is too depressing, I wonder
how these people get other information. Then
again, maybe that's the problem; they don't
get any (factual) information. These will be
the people who don't know where to go or
what to do in case of an emergency. These are
the people who will place the lives of law
enforcement and emergency workers in
jeopardy because they are not prepared.
If we get a hurricane or hurricane force
winds, you will be on your own because things
are going to shut down and everyone is going
to head for safety, including police, fire &
rescue and medical people. If trees are
downed, it could be days before someone can
get trees off roadways so that vehicles,
emergency and otherwise, can get through.
Craig Fugate, the man in charge of calamities
in Florida, said people need to be prepared to
take care of their own needs because help
can't always get to you.
Each year the National Hurricane Service
publishes a list of what people need in a
hurricane survival kit. They also distribute
information on just about everything you need
to do to get through a hurricane. My advice is
to take these people seriously. Believe me,
they have no interest in giving out false
information. If they say head for higher
ground, do it.
There are a lot of people who won't believe
the orders to evacuate. Sadly, we will lose
them and some will probably never be found.
My cousin, who lives in New Orleans, told me
the other day, "The next time they tell me to
evacuate, I'm leaving." He was one of the
ones who didn't believe it could happen and
wound up wading neck-deep in water to get to
safety.
Be prepared. It could be Gadsden County's
time to weather a storm or two in the hurricane
season of 2006.


I would say that I am not the only person who
is having a problem with armadillos.
I lost count, but at least 30 people have called,
emailed or stopped me on the street to tell me
how they solved their armadillo problem.
Interestingly, there is a bond that develops .
between people who share the same experiences.
I think that is what is happening with those of use
who are battling armadillos on the front lines of
our yards.
Every conversation has started with my
"comrades-in-arm-adillos" telling me about their
own campaign to rid their turf of this menace of
smooth grassy lawns.
Each person has a story of how these
rampaging destroyers of yards have played havoc
on their flower beds, lawns or gardens. They
have horror tales of waking up one'morning and
finding their yards torn from hither to yonder
after a night of pillaging by a horde of
armadillos.
"A fat lot of good it does," one fellow said
about all of the work he did on his nice, neat and
well-groomed yard, only to look out his window
one morning and see a battlefield where once his
lawn had lain.
I could hear a sniffle on the other end of the
line as he lamented about the holes scattered
across his yard.
"It looks like they carpet-bombed my yard,"
he said, and then a silence fell on the phone.
"You will let me know if you find some way to
get rid of those #@ @!!! armadillos won't you?"
he asked me. The man then mumbled something
about taking a Valium and hung up the phone.
I did in fact get some ideas about ways to rid
my yard of armadillos and I'll pass them on to
you and the fellow with the jittery nerves.
There was one method that several people called
and said was a sure-fire way to get rid of
armadillos.
No, it is not to move to Alaska.
It makes sense if you think about it. They said
that the armadillos were in my yard to eat the
grubs, so get rid of the grubs.
To do that I'll need to poison my whole yard
for grubs. I checked on it, and found that it will
not be that expensive. I saw a picture of a grub on
the bag of poison, and I just don't ever remember
seeing one in my yard. They must be there,
however, because armadillos love grubs, or so
I'm told.
I'm going to try it at least once, just to see if I
can see some dead grubs in my yard.
The next idea makes sense, as well, and may
work for those that don't want to poison their
yard.
I was told to get a dog an outside dog to be
specific. It seems dogs, for the most part, do not
like armadillos. I have several friends that own
dogs and they do not have an armadillo problem.
Since I live alone and get along with my


neighbors I figured I don't need to leave a dog
alone all day to pester them, so I'm going to pass
on that idea.
Several people offered me traps. That idea
sounded good. I was told that you put the trap on
one of their paths and then wait for them to walk
into it.
It works, but there is a slight problem with the
traps. I was told you could do what you wanted
to with them after you caught them, but after my
last shooting experience, it was obvious I
couldn't shoot one of them, which would leave
hauling them off or beating them to death, neither
one of which appeals to me.
However, if the grub poison doesn't work, I
will resort to a trap. Maybe I could feed the little
scavengers the grub poison.
I had many other suggestions, but there was
one that I thought best explained the frustration
we anti-armadillo crusaders feel.
The gentleman who offered the suggestion
had a very resourceful idea. He installed motion
detector lights on the comers of his house, which
included a sound device as well. When the
armadillo set off the motion detector it let out a
loud beep.
I know what you are thinking, because I
thought the same thing that armadillos are
afraid of loud sounds.
That is not what the loud noise was intended
for, however. Instead, the loud noise would wake
the fellow up, prompting him to go outside and
shoot the armadillo.
He keeps his gun by the bed, he explained,
and, when the siren goes off, he jumps up, hits
the yard and nails the unsuspecting yard
demolisher.
It works for him. My problem, as I've said
before, would be hitting the target the armadillo
in this case.
I have another problem, as well. I'm not the
happiest person early in the morning, especially
at 3 a.m. I don't even want to think about what
could happen if I was awaken by motion sensor
lights and loud beeping.
I think I got a couple of good ideas out of this,
and I'll let you know who wins in the ongoing
battle between the armadillos and me.
While I have your attention, I do have another
yard problem.
Fire ants have turned my yard into a resort. I
cut \my grass Saturday and then spent 30 minutes
putting poison on these "high rise condo" ant
beds that are scattered across my yard.
I've been in the same location for 22 years
and have never stopped fighting fire ants. I've
tried all of the home remedies from orange peels
to vinegar and grits. I've used dozens of
chemicals over the years, and the best I've been
able to do was keep them at bay only somewhat.
Any help out there would be appreciated.


Paved road questions


Dear Editor,

: A while back, there was a
yery nice article in the paper
-about a road (Carswell Road,
-which in actuality, turns into
the Mt. Hosea Church Road) in
the Robertsville community
that had gotten paved. The
reader would assume that the
road was completely paved.
Well, the rest of the story is
that it's not. Only
a half mile got paved and no
more. The two roads together
are approximately two miles or
so. In the article Mrs. Jessie
Mae Johnson talked about how
it took over 50 years for this to
happen.
Unfortunately, it seems that it
will take even longer. The
irony of this is that although
these two roads have existed
for so long, there are a number
of other roads created within
the last 15 to 20 years that have
received complete paving. I'm
over 53 years old and I
remember, when I was a child,
my mother, Louise Bums, was
trying to get these roads paved.
Mrs. Johnson talked
about how all of the elders who
resided on this road had passed
on and never got to see the
paved road. I hope that this
same remark will not be made


about me.
After the half mile was
paved, the residents on
Carswell Road and Mt. Hosea
Church Road were forgotten
about. At least that's the
consensus of the residents that
I've talked with about this
issue.
For whatever the reason, I
hope and pray that the
completion of the paving is
done before the really bad
rainy seasons come. Currently,
every time it rains, the road is
an accident waiting to happen
because of the lime that has
been added to the red clay.
Cars are slipping and sliding all
over the road. I am pleading for
the completion of the work on
these two roads. I am also
asking that the powers-that-be
would expedite its completion.

Waste
problems


Management


Dear Editor:

I have been reading, with
interest, the many, customer
complaints that have been
published in the Tallahassee
Democrat concerning Waste
Management services.
Leon County will be
investigating these complaints


starting next Monday, fining
Waste Management $90 per
incident if these complaints are
found to be valid (Tallahassee
Democrat, May 11, 2006).
People of Quincy and
Gadsden County have also had
sub-standard garbage and trash
collection from Waste
Management for some time.
Maybe Gadsden County
should check their contract
with Waste Management and
see if they should be fining
them for their poor service.

County workshops


Dear Editor:

If you or anyone in your
family own land in Gadsden
County, would you please
attend the county workshop at
the Gretna City Hall on
Thursday, May 18 at 7 p.m. If
you own five acres of land and
can build one house or may
want to build more or less then
come out and give your input.
If you own 10 or more acres of
land in the county and want to
build or develop more or less
you need to come to this
meeting. If you do not own any
land in the county you still
need to voice your opinion
concerning the future of this


county.
You must vote on the items
you think are the most
important. If you don't
understand how your property
was zoned then you need to be
present at this workshop. If you
find this workshop to be filled
please find out when the next
scheduled workshop will take
place before you leave. What
you have to say is important.
We may not get everything
we want but this is the time
when we will be heard.

Commissioner Brenda Holt


Questions for Quincy


Dear Editor,


The citizens of Quincy
realize the City Commission
has a job to do in order to look
after the financial stability of
the city, but would you please
allow the citizens an
opportunity to look at the audit
report and compare the results
to what the commissioner told
Mr. Banks to do in contrast to
what Mr. Banks may have done
on his own?
If you have to replace him to
move the city forward then so
be it, but some of us can read
an audit report too, and we
would also like to see if the
City Commission is doing its
job. If the commission voted to
tell Mr. Banks to do something
incorrectly then the
commissioners should be
removed, also. Miss Taylor and
fellow commissioners, who do


you work for? The citizens
should not have to wonder who
the commission works for.
We would also want to
know who you have to replace
Mr. Banks. We all know the
commission has to advertise
and select the best candidate
for the position but we also
know there has never been a
manager other than Mr. Banks
that brought in over 13 million


dollars to the city of Quincy.
So Please, please, don't
bring in a person that has been
fired from another position in
the city or the county, because
we have not seen anything they
have done to improve the
conditions anywhere in this
county.

10 The Gadsden County Times May 18,2006


Teachers, support staff honored


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor


Whether they were 30-year
veterans, first year teachers or
support staff, all were
honored last Friday night
during the 2006 Golden
Apple Gala at the National
Guard Armory. All of the
nominees for Teacher of the
Year, Rookie (Teacher) of the
Year and School-Related
Employee of the Year were
presented plaques and treated
to a dinner befitting their
performance.
While the nominees and
winners were singled out,
countywide those who work
each day with children were
honored. "Thank you that we
didn't lose our minds on the
way to success. They
(teachers and school-related
employees) didn't give up,
they didn't give in," Joann
Kimble, administrative
assistant to the
Superintendent of Schools,
said.
Each participant was
introduced with a drum roll,
provided by the James A.
Shanks drum line, as they
entered the room. West
Gadsden High School Junior
ROTC cadets escorted the
teachers into the room.
Yasmeen Leon, 2005
teacher of the year,
entertained participants with
a modem dance.
Gadsden County
Superintendent of Schools
Reginald James was the
keynote speaker and was
introduced by school board
member Isaac Simmons. "He
is a personal friend of mine.
When I ran for office he
was right there with me,"
Simmons said.
James praised the honorees.
"You did not make
excuses. You took your bag
of tools and helped build a
brighter future," he said,
adding "good teachers know
how to take lemons and make
lemonade."
James,, said many great
leaders have come from the
tobacco fields of Gadsden
County.
"We've had doctors, lawyers,
and just ordinary people," he
said.
The following were all
nominees for awards at this
year's Golden Apple Gala.

Land owners proud of road paving


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

It was a great day for the 26
property owners who live on
Quail Roost Drive and Quail
Roost West in the Farms at
Quincy, north of the city limits.
They had waited three years to
get their streets paved and with
Monday afternoon's dedication,
work will begin within two
weeks.
"On behalf of the
homeowners, we are truly
elated. We thank the county, it
has been a long struggle. We're
appreciative and we hope other
communities will take
advantage of this opportunity,"
said Ann Sherman, who was
one of the residents pushing for
the street paving.
The opportunity Sherman
was talking about is a first for


the county. "The program has
been on the books for quite
some time," said commission
chairman Ed Dixon. The
project, which was authorized
by the commission in 2004,
allows the residents to pay two-
third of the paving cost, while
the county pays one-third. The
cost of this project is
approximately $60,000.
Residents then must go
through a formal process of
deeding the road, and
specifically the portion of their
property that the road exists on,
to the county.
"We are excited to see this
project through and really
excited about the opportunities
that exist to work with citizens
in citizen-county government
partnerships such as the Quail
Roost Project," said
commissioner Brenda Holt.


"Two years ago, none of us
believed this was possible.
We'll be doing more of this in
the future," Dixon said.
Other residents, like Jim Folds,
Rosa Barkley, and Lisa Bristol
were on hand for the
dedication. They said they had
grown tired of the dust and
bumpy road. "I'm
delighted about the paving,
we're really ready. It will be
better for our health and our
cars," Barkley said.
James Thigpen, representing
the Farms at Quincy
Homeowners Association,
thanked the county for their
efforts.
To learn more about the
citizen-initiated paving project,

the Gadsden County Public
Works Department at. (850)

Emancipation Day celebration planned


BY ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

Between 1,500 and 2,000
people are expected to
attend the Emancipation
Day, or 20th of May,
celebration this Saturday at'
the Gunn Family Home. The
event is planned each year
by the descendents of S.B.
Gunn, and this year's theme
is "Love, Peace &
Prosperity."
Emancipation Day is
celebrated by African-
Americans in north Florida


to commemorate the day that
news reached this area
proclaiming the end of
slavery. Local citizen
LaTrenda Gainous-Goldwire
said her grandfather held the
day sacred and before he
died asked his children to
continue the tradition.
Each' year during the
celebration family members
fry hundreds of pounds of
mullet, bream, catfish and
chicken, along with
barbecue ribs and chickens
accompanied with an
assortment of vegetables.


The public is invited to
share in this free feast.
A short program will kick
off the day's festivities at
4:30 p.m. as family members
give a brief history of the
Emancipation Day
celebration and what it
means to African-
Americans. Dinner,
Gainous-Goldwire said, will
be served at 5 p.m.
For more information or
directions call Gainous-
Goldwire at 694-1076 or
Eva Gunn Leonard at 627-
3816.

category.
Black, Seaman, and Fields
shared credit with co-workers
for their success. "This would
not have been possible had it
not been for my peers, the
administration and the
county," Seaman said. Black
said she shared the honor
with all of the teachers in
Gadsden County.
Each participant received a
plaque and a monetary award.

Cookout for

teachers

Wednesday

by ALICE DUPONT
Times Editor

Doug Harris, who
represents the Gadsden County
Classroom Teachers
Association, says he knows
that people outside of the
teaching profession appreciate
the dedication and hard work
the men and women perform,
but few have the opportunity
to do it publicly.
Harris is providing that
opportunity next Wednesday,
May 24, from 3 to 5 p.m. on
the Courthouse Square. "We
feel the community needs to
exhibit support for the
teachers. Very few times do
members of the community get
to embrace the teachers,"
Harris said.
Gadsden County's teachers
will be the honored guests at
the cookout and will be treated
to grilled hot dogs,
hamburgers, and chicken and
all of the trimmings. Harris
invites community leaders as
well as the business
community to attend the
cookout and give teachers a pat
on the back.
"All we hear about is
FCAT, but teachers play a
most important role in the
future of the children. The
teacher is the mother of all
professions," he said, adding,
"we ought to show them
appreciation."

Moore family reunion
The Moore family reunion
(formerly Harrison family) will
have their next reunion meeting
May 20 at 11 a.m. in the dining
hall of Old Bethel A.M.E.
Church on Highbridge Road.
The deadline (June 30) for our.
reunion fee is fast approaching.
T-shirts can also be purchased
from the reunion committee.

P&Z denies


variance

by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

Property owners Robert and Sandra
Harrell didn't get a thumbs up on their


request for a variance from the Planning
Commission during the regular May 11
meeting.
The commission instead recommended
denial of the couple's request for a 20-
foot setback (35 feet is required) on two
lots they own in the proposed Towhee
Minor Subdivision.
The property is located on the north
side of State Road 12, east and west of
Hidden Lake Road. On the largest parcel,
the Harrells wanted a private road


without a cul de sac. The 361-foot road,
according to the Harrells, did not need a
cul de sac.
Growth Management Director Bill
McCord said he felt that wouldn't be a
problem with six or seven homes, but
that "it may become a problem with 25
homes with deliveries, garbage trucks
and so forth."
Commission member Larry Ganus
asked the Harrells if they would consider
changing the size of their lots to comply


with the code, but the couple replied they
preferred to keep the number of lots they
wanted.
The request, with a recommendation
for denial, will be sent to the Board of
County Commissioners for a final
decision during the regular County
Commissioners meeting on June 22.
In an unrelated matter, the commission
recommended approval for a variance
request for signage at the Holiday Inn
Express. Vasant and Usha Patel, owners


of Kiwi's Hospitality, requested a
variance to'permit an additional wall sign
and a variance of 2.125 square feet for
parking and directional signs for the
hotel, located on the south side of
Interstate 10 and Pat Thomas Parkway.
Final approval for this project will also
be decided during the June 22 regular
meeting of the Board of County
Commissioners.

Mailing the groceries
Local postal workers are pictured here next to over 6,000 pounds of nonperishable food items that will go
to the needy of Gadsden County through the Presbyterian Hunger Program. Rural and city postal workers
collected the food from Gadsden County residents on their regular routes Saturday as part of a national food
drive organized by the United States Postal Service. Although the initial count Saturday was about 5,800
pounds, food items were still rolling in on the final routes Monday, yielding a record donation quantity for
the local post office. "This year people started giving early, and more people seemed to participate than in
previous years," Postmaster Pamela Briggs said. "Six thousand pounds of food for a community of this size
to me is phenomenal." This is the 14th year the local post office has participated in the food drive. Pictured,

The first Workforce Plus
Gadsden County J.O.B.S. Fair
was held Tuesday and, it was a
success, according to Chief
Executive Officer Kimberly
Moore.
Twenty-five local and regional
employers took advantage of the
opportunity to meet prospective
employees. Almost 100 people
came Tuesday to see what was on
the employment horizon.
From Pizza Hut to Englehard,
jobseekers picked up information
or filled out applications on the
spot. "I need a job," said Danyell
Green after she talked with Vicki
Montgomery, human resources
manager at Englehard.
"We've had a good turnout. We
have four positions we're looking
to fill today," Montgomery said,
amid products manufactured with
the company's raw fuller's earth.
Green, 23, completed the
cosmetology course at Gadsden
Technical Institute but now wants
to find a job with more stability
and with benefits. While she had
never heard of Englehard, she
was interested in finding what the
company had to offer.
David Bowman, human
resources manager for Turbocor
of Tallahassee, was looking to fill
about 20 positions. The company,
which assembles machinery, is
located in Innovation Park on the
west side of Tallahassee. "I have
a stack of applications. If I can
hire some people, it's a plus, plus
for everybody," he said.
Talquin Electric had three
vacancies, according to Ken
Cowen. "I've had some good
applicants. I think we'll be able to
find who we want from among
them," he said.
Pizza Hut Manager Rod Sailor
handed out coupons with his
applications. "They need to know
our product if they're going to be
working for us," he said.
T-Formations representatives
were looking for weekend and


part-time employees. They said
they were a little disappointed in
the pool of applicants. "I saw a
lot of flip-flops. Some of them
really didn't look like they
wanted a job," one of the
representatives said.
Michelle Brown, who has two
college degrees, said she was
disappointed in some of the
representatives. "Some of them
had condescending attitudes, like
they thought everyone was at the
bottom of the ladder. I just
wanted to come and see what was
offered; you never know when
you might want to make a career
change," she said.
Brown said the fair was a good
idea but that more participation is


needed. "As many people around
here who say they want a job, this
place should be packed," she
said, looking around the nearly-
empty gymnasium at James A.
Shanks Middle School just before
1 p.m.
Julie Chance, human resource
specialist for Waffle House,
handed out pre-applications.
From the 16 or more card-sized
applications she collected, she
plans further interviews at the
Midway restaurant site. "They
can then have the telephone
interview," she explained.
Moore said jobseekers will be
able to contact employers at the
fair if they want further
information.

The Gadsden County Chapter of the National Hook-Up of Black Women donated $22,976.67 last
week to the Tallahassee Community College Foundation.
The funds will be earmarked for GadsdenLEARNS, an organization that helps secure scholarships
for Gadsden residents attending TCC. A group of people raised the money through private donations
several years ago during the weekend Quincy honored Dexter Jackson, MVP of Superbowl 37.

Legislation makes hurricane supplies

tax exempt in time for hurricane season


by BRIAN DEKLE
Times Intern
In an era of increased tropical
turmoil and unprecedented
weather-related threats to
personal property, sufficient
disaster preparedness is
imperative. An upcoming sales
tax holiday will make it easier
than ever for Floridians to do just
that in time for the rapidly-
approaching hurricane season.
The tax holiday,, which begins
May 21 at at 12:01 a.m. and ends
June 1 at midnight, will make
many items essential for toughing
out Florida's infamously-severe
storm season exempt from both
local and state sales taxes. These
include flashlights, batteries,
radios, gas cans, cell phone
chargers, storm shutters and
much more.
"In this period of increased

Daylily society
hosts show and
plant sale

The Tallahassee Daylily
Society will hold its annual
daylily show and plant sale
Sunday, May 21 at the
Tallahassee Mall, 2415 North
Monroe St. Several out-of-town
and local growers will be
competing. Judging will take
place from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30
p.m. This breathtaking display
will be open for public viewing
from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. Beginning
at 10 a.m. there will be a plant
sale with over 2000 registered
daylilies. Free educational
material on daylilies will also be
available.


tropical activity, it is vital for all
Floridians to prepare," Gov. Bush
said in a news release posted on
his website. "Families and
businesses that prepare are safer
and recover quicker than those
who don't plan and don't take
action."
The tax holiday comes as a
result of legislation passed during
the recent legislative session that
lawmakers say aims to make
Florida more prepared for what
many experts believe will be
another tumultuous hurricane
season. The $565 million
legislative package includes
funding to harden county
emergency operations centers,
make existing homes more
disaster resistant, install
permanent generators in all
special needs shelters, create safe
public shelter for an additional
100,000 people, repair and

rehabilitate homes in
communities severely impacted
by the 2004 and 2005 storms, and
raise public awareness on the
critical need to prepare for
hurricanes, according to a
governor's office news release.
"All indications are that we will
have another active hurricane
season," Florida Division of
Emergency Management Director
Craig Fugate said in the news
release. "A successful response
starts well before a storm makes
landfall with families,
communities and counties
planning and preparing for a
potential emergency."

for tax exemption in the
upcoming holiday or for general
hurricane preparedness, visit

Seminole Ramlins
by Jack Wingate
According to .reliable sourses, on the Southeast
Traffic Circle near the Federal Prison in Tallahassee,
six lanes of traffic was stopped and wrecks almost took
place, but no one was hurt, no vehicles damaged, when
a mother led her babies across the six lanes of traffic
and her husband shewedshewed the brood along. It jest
happened to be Ma and Pa Goose crossing West to East
after feeding in a small field of grass with seeds. No
one complained and the whole she bang made it across
and back to the holding pond of the prison. For those
of you that don't know, Mr. and Mrs. Goose marry for
life without vows! Strange ain't it?
We have had a good week on Bream, Shellcrackers
and Catfish. Some of the Bream will be about hand
size and bigger and the Shellcrackers are even bigger
with all the Snails they have to eat. At this riten, "Sat
nite" there was 4 active beds in site of Bass Island
Campground.


We got word mid-week of the results of the Valdosta
Bass Busters tournament out of Wingate's on Saterday
and Sunday of last week. 1st place on Saterday went
to Tom Ridley with 14 lbs. On Sunday he won with
13.04 Ibs. He also had Big Fish with 6.14 lbs.
The Bainbridge Bass Club fished out of Wingate's on
Saturday. Richard Predmore won the event with 15.5
lbs. He had Big Fish with a 4.74 lbs.
The Talquin Hooker's fished out of Wingate's on
Saturday too with Mrs. Sarah Johnson winning that
event. She also had the Big Fish.
As always we have a problem with the Alabama and
Georgia timing. The two towers that cover the Lake,
one Georgia time and one Alabama time, is very
confusing to the contestants. Needs fixin'!
We here tell that the meeting of concerned citizens in
Donalsonville was near a complete flop as could be.
The Georgia DNR and the Georgia EPA was not aware
of the meeting. "Things" were handed to the Corps
that they had never heard of, yet it was in print in all the
local papers. Just a circus that's all.


Florida Bass Federation angler
William Johns of the
Consolidated Bassmasters Bass
Club won the fourth tournament
of the Florida Bass Federation's
2006 Minn Kota Tournament
Trail on the lower Appalachicola
River system out of White City.
The Quincy based angler staged
a massive, come from 'behind
charge on day two, bagging the
tournaments biggest limit to take
the win.
Johns, a 29 year old plant
grower for Hackney Nursery
Company in Quincy, weighed in
4 fish for 5.58 pounds on day one
and found himself sitting in 22nd
position.
"I had my fifth fish on but lost
him"' Johns explained. "Then I
had to leave my area to go to my
partners fish."
Minn Kota Tournament Trail
rules give each angler the choice
of where to fish and allow them
control of the trolling motor for
half of each fishing day. On day
two things came together a little
better for William, who was
catching his fish on top water
plugs and Texas rigged worms. "I
had my limit by 9:30" said Johns,
who stayed in his Chipola River
backwater area until around
noon.
At the day two weigh in, Johns
brought his bag to the scales and
watched as assistant tournament
director Steve Persinger called
the weight at 14.64 pounds,
besting the 12.76 pound day one
big bag of Winter Haven Lunker
Lover David Glenn by nearly two
pounds.
More importantly, Johns' limit
gave him a two day total of 20.22
pounds, good enough to take the
win, the first place check, a new
Minn Kota trolling motor, the
first place plaque and an
embroidered Champion's jacket
from Key West Enterprises.
Johns' total gave him the win
over second place Sam Fifer of
the Bay County Bass Club by just
under a pound. Fifer, who


bli'iught in a ti da [ten tish
total of 19.27 pounds, was in the
number two spot going into the
second day. His nice 11.41 pound
effort on day one was the
tournaments third biggest bag
overall.
Third place in the tournament
was the highest finishing non-
boater, Neal McCollam Sr. of the
Harris Chain Bassmasters.
McCollam teamed up with
second place angler Sam Fifer.
Rounding out the top five
anglers are local expert and 2006
State Team member Bobby Smith
of the Consolidated Bassmasters
and David Glenn of the Winter
Haven Lunker Lovers.
In all, 42 anglers from the
White City tournament qualified
to fish the State Championship at
Lake Okeechobee in October.
Anglers fishing the State
Championship will be fishing for
cash and prizes as well as a spot
on the, 2007 Florida Bass
Federation State Team. In
addition, qualified anglers
entering the State Championship
tournament will be automatically
entered into a raffle to win a new
Ranger bass boat powered by a
Yamaha outboard, courtesy of
FBF sponsors, Ranger Boats,
Yamaha and North Lake Marine.

Banks

Continued from Page 1

asked by commissioner Derrick
Elias if the city would be able to
pay Banks and possibly hire an
interim or permanent city
manager.
Joyner responded that there was
money available for the
remainder of this fiscal year,
from the unexpended -finance
director's salary. That position
has been vacant since October
when finance director Neva Reed
resigned.
The remaining money she said
would extend into next year's
budget. Joyner said she did not
see a problem with that
extension.
-There are several additional
items included in the severance
agreement, such as a disclosure
statement, that were not
discussed in the meeting. In
addition the total amount of
compensation involved in the
agreement will not be available
until all of the parties involved
have signed off on the agreement.
There is a seven-day period in
which Banks can reject the
agreement. Banks stated in the
meeting that he did not intend to
reject the agreement.
"I'll tell you up front I will not
do that."
The commission voted
unanimously to accept the
agreement.
In a related matter the
commission approved
unanimously the appointment of
financial consultant Bill Bogan as
interim city manager effective
May 31.
Bogan has been helping the
city's finance department catch
up on past due audits and
working with the city's forensic
auditors to help determine the
financial status of the city.
Commissioner Finley Cook
made the motion to hire Bogan,
saying that he felt Bogan
understood the city and the city's
finances. Commissioner Keith
Dowdell seconded the motion.


Immigration

Continued from Page 1

it will stalemate in the House of
Representatives."
He did not see a problem with
the reform issue making it
through the senate. The senate
has a bill co-sponsored by John
McCain and Ted Kennedy that
has some similarities with Bush's
reforms.
The House's bill failed in
December of 2005 and did not
include any guest worker
programs.
"I think it is a good idea
sending the National Guard in to
protect the borders," Gadsden
County resident Frank Edwards
said.
He feels the immigration laws
should be the same for everyone.
A recent episode involving an
athlete who was having problems
because he was not a 'citizen'
was an example Edwards used.
"If you are going to be right it
should be the same for
everyone," Edwards said.
"If you are in this country
illegally you should be sent back
home," Billy Poston a Gadsden
County resident said.
Poston said he had no problem
.with people immigrating to this
country, but thought those in this
country illegally should be
required to become citizens based
on the law.
"Do it the right way." Poston
said.


Others held these views:
* A gentleman from East Texas
visiting relatives in Quincy liked
the idea of the guest worker
program. He did not like the idea
of illegal immigrants receiving
benefits, an issue that has many
border states pressing for the
current immigration reforms.
"I understand they are here for
the jobs, but if they are in this
country they need to go through
the right process," he said.
He agreed with Bush's
requirement that immigrants have
a non-counterfeitable card. "Do it
legally," he said.
* The idea of a card that could


12-$668,263
*Small County Outreach/Road
Construction Projects:
-Lanier Road/US 90 to County
Road 270- $844,670
Dixon said that while he is
happy about the funded projects,
he is saddened that the county
has not taken advantage of
similar funding in the past. "Look
where we could have been if we
had looked forward before. But
we can't get comfortable. We've
got a lot of work to do. A good
thing is that the Department of
Environmental Protection has
included us in their work plan
and they will be going to bat for
us on future projects. We're


where we need to be and
everybody is happy," he said.
"My constituents have every
reason to celebrate this year's
state budget," Lawson added. His
district has the third highest
allocation in district projects
funded in the 2006-2007 budget.
The thousands of state
employees who live in Gadsden
County are also happy that, as of
Oct. 1, 2006 there will, be a three
percent pay increase for all state
employees with no increase in
health insurance premiums.
State correctional officers will
receive a compression pay
increase of five percent for those
with five years of service and a


six percent pay increase for those
with 10 years or more of service,
effective Oct. 1. State firefighters
will also receive a special pay
increase adjustment of eight
percent.
"As the senator representing the
the greatest number of state
employees in the state, I am very
pleased with the legislature's
decision to fund these critical pay
adjustments. These pay increases
will help the state of Florida
retain and recruit experienced
personnel." Lawson said. He
represents senate district six,
which includes Gadsden and 10
other counties.
Public schools were not left out


either. This year's budget
provided a much needed boost in
state and local public school
allocations for grades K-12.
Gadsden County schools will
receive an additional $3,359,283
for the upcoming school year,
reflecting an 8.63 percent
increase.
With the passing of House Bill
293 and Senate Bill 1612, co-
sponsored by Sen. Lawson, a
program to assist fiscally
constrained counties was created.
A fiscally constrained county is
defined as a county that is
entirely located in a rural area of
critical economic concern or a
county in which the value of one


mill generated $5 million or less
in property taxes. Because of this
new law, Gadsden County will
recieve $804,441 in new revenue
dollars.
Lawson also sponsored a bill in
the Senate that increases per
diem for state employees. "State
workers have subsisized the cost
of performing their jobs out of
their pockets for too long,"
Lawson said. A provision in the
bill will increase the mileage
reimbursement rate from 29 cents
to 44.5 cents per mile.
"Considering the huge jump in
gas prices, passage of the bill
could not have been more
timely," Lawson said.

Interim Quincy City Manager Bill Bogan


Dowdell said the city could
"kill two birds with one stone" by.
hiring Bogan.
Bogan is a CPA and has an
extensive municipal management
background. He is currently a
financial director for the City of
Tallahassee.
Elias had concerns that Bogan
would not be able to fulfill the
requirements of the manager's
position because of his current
position.
Bogan said that he would like to
know if the position would
become permanent before leaving
his current job.
When asked how much time he
would need, Bogan said he
needed three weeks to work out a
notice with his current employer.
Elias had another concern as
well. He felt the process was
moving too quickly and wanted
to slow down and possibly look
at other candidates.
Bogan responded that he was
satisfied in his current status as a
financial consultant and his
employment with the City of
Tallahassee. He said that he had

not be counterfeited sounded
good to Gadsden County's Loyd
Roberts. "If they are in this
country illegally they should not
be able to get a job," Roberts
said.
"It seemed to make sense to
me," Dick Hollahan a Gadsden
County resident said. Hollahan
said he knew many Hispanic
people who have come to this
country and done well for
themselves.
"America has the reputation of
being a country of immigrants,"-
Hollahan said. If'you are going to
come here and work, Hollohan
said, do it the right way.
"If you are going to be an
American accept #the American
way of life and play by the
rules."
Bush's plan
Bush had begun the outline for
his plan by stating, "Tonight, I
will make it clear where I stand
and where I want to lead our
country on this vital issue.
"We must begin by recognizing
the problems with our
immigration system," Bush
continued.
President Bush gave five points
as his strategy for immigration
reform.
As his first order of business
Bush said the United States must
secure its borders. The border
however, should be open to trade
and lawful immigration and shut
to illegal immigrants, as well as
criminals, drug dealers and
terrorist.
To secure the border Bush
proposes adding 6,000 new
border patrol officers to the
current 12,000 by 2008. Because
of training issues and the current
need for additional personnel,
Bush intends to beef up the
border patrol with 6,000 National
Guard troops. In addition he
proposes to use many of the high-
tech border security initiatives,
which will include motion
detectors, infrared cameras and
unmanned aerial vehicles.
Secondly, Bush proposes a
temporary worker program,
which would create a legal path
for foreign workers to enter the
United States.
Bush's third point would be to


been approached by McLean and
asked if he would consider the
position.
"I believe I can help the
citizens," Bogan said.
There will be more discussion
on the hiring of a permanent city
manager at next Tuesday night's
meeting.


Visioning

Continued from Page 1
asked to place stickers on areas
and issues of priority. At the end
of the visioning workshops, the
stickers will be collected and
used to help prioritize issues that
will most affect the growth of the
county.
The next meeting will be held
tonight at Gretna City Hall at 7
p.m. Residents from any part of
the county are asked to attend the
meetings.
Meetings are scheduled for each
Thursday night at 7 p.m. in
different parts of the county
through June 22.


hold employers accountable for
workers they hire. To ensure
accountability, a better system
for verifying documents and
work eligibility would be
installed. The use of biometric
technology identification cards
issued to every legal foreign
worker, such as digital finger
printing would be one method
Bush mentioned.
What will happen to the
millions of illegal immigrants in
this country was Bush's fourth
point. There will be no mass
deportation. Illegal immigrants
should not be given an automatic
path to citizenship or amnesty,
Bush said. Illegal immigrants
who have roots in this country
and want to stay should have to
pay a meaningful penalty for
breaking the law, pay taxes, learn
English and work in a job for a
number of years.
The fifth point Bush said,
centered around the long history
of America as a melting pot. The
success of the country depends
on helping newcomers assimilate
into the American society.
Learning English is a vital part of
that assimilation.


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.

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.
If you don't see the car of your dreams in
this ad, call us. We'll get you pre-approved,
tell you what it will cost and buy it for you.
We appreciate your supporting us. Come
by or call.

Munroe split a pair of spring football jamboree quarters Friday
night at Corry Field. defeating Aucilla 24-0 before losing to
Carrabelle 16-0.
The Bobcats got some big plays in the opening quarter to get
by Aucilla.
A 32-yard pass from Clay White to Cody Watson set up a 12-
yard touchdown run by Dontavius Johnson to get Munroe on
the board early.
Chris McDonald was the next Bobcat player to come up with
a big play when he intercepted an Aucilla pass and returned it
85 yards for a touchdown.
Johnson then scored the Bobcats' final touchdown on a 1-yard
run.
Johnson also had two PAT runs and White passed to Todd
Rowan for another to wrap up Munroe's scoring.
The Bobcats played the jamboree under assistants Clay Fallis,
Jim Brantley and Adam Reep.
Fallis coached the defense. "I felt we played real well in
shutting out Aucilla." Fallis said, pointing out defenders
McDonald-who had two interceptions. Jason Cook, Chris
Cochran and Chris Vick.
Against Carrabelle the Bobcats looked like they might win
both quarters. They threatened to break a scoreless game with
the ball inside the Carrabelle 10 yard line and under five
minutes to play.
Jared Mock put an end to that when he intercepted a Munroe
throw and ran it back 100 yards for 6 points. LaFredrick
Curry's extra point run made it 8-0.
The Panthers scored again with two minutes left on a Gene
Anderson 14-yard pass to Larry Hadsock. Curry again ran in
the PAT making it 16-0.
Carrabelle was the night's big winner as they also defeated
Aucilla in a quarter. That score was 22-12.

ARMED


FORCES DAY


,' -u..~ -*1


Every year the many countries around the world honor their armed forces. In the United States, we celebrate Armed Forces Week.
This week begins on the second Saturday in May and ends on the third Saturday, which is Armed Forces Day. This yearArmed Forces
Day falls on May 20th, 2006. The armed forces in which we honor are the men and women of the Army, Air Force, Navy, Marine Corp,
and the Coast Guard. These people deserve recognition for their contributions to our nation and our freedom. Take a moment on that
S* day to say thank you to someone you know who has served in the Armed Forces.
;Qf t 0l *iThe five branches of the Armed Forces, or -niitary, work together to protect our country, and peoples of other nations as well. The
S Army is the portion of the United States military that handles land based military operations. The Air Force mans the skies. The Navy is
,. responsible for military functions at sea, as well as the Coast Guard that is responsible for protecting the United States Coasts and its
S, i / people. And the Marine Corp, which was first created to provide Navy vessels with land soldiers, now has a wide variety of responsibili-
ties. Many of these soldiers work in what we call, The Special Forces. These are special units in the branches that carry out especially
important and dangerous tasks. The Army's Special Forces are the Army Rangers. The Navy has the Navy Seals, and the Marine Corp
has the Marine Force Recon. The Armed Forces ROTC, or Reserve Officer Training Corp, is also honored on this day. These are men
j and women that are members of the military, who are trained to serve in times of conflict or war, but only work part time in their branch,
.... until their services are needed. Many ROTC soldiers are called upon in times of war.
Armed Forces Day was first celebrated on Saturday May 20th, 1950. The five military branches of the United States had all previously celebrated days honoring their
individual branch. In 1947, President Truman signed the National Security Act of 1947, which ordered the separate military branches to coordinate their activities under one
entity, The Department of Defense. Armed Forces Day was created as part of the campaign to unify the Armed Forces under their new name, given to them in 1949. The
Coast Guard is only under the Department of Defense in times of war. Though the Department of Defense coordinates the separate branches of the Armed Forces
activities, the President of the United States is still considered the head of the military. He is known as the Commander in Chief, which is the head of the E.ecuti e Branch
of our government. The Executive Branch is one of the three branches of government in the United States, the other two being the Legislative and Judicial Branches.

ELVIS spotted at local

childcare programs


The Early Learning Coalition of
the Big Bend Region is working
with local child care facilities to
begin its second phase of the
ELVIS (Early Learning
Volunteer Instruction and
Support) program.
ELVIS is a community project
that unites local citizens and early
learning programs to help
children thrive in early literacy.
"This is one of many projects that
your Early Learning Coalition is
coordinating in an effort to help
all children throughout the big
bend region become prepared for
success in school.
ELVIS participants will work
with three- and four-year-old
children at various childcare
facilities throughout Leon and
Gadsden counties.
While visiting childcare
facilities volunteers will have the
opportunity to lead exciting
activities that promote early
literacy such as reading, painting,
dancing, and singing. Each
volunteer will also receive
specialized training and a'
"Chicka Chicka Boom Boom"
resource kit.
One hundred twenty children,
12 volunteers and nine childcare
facilities made the first wave of
ELVIS a huge success.
Volunteers who participated in
the first phase were: Tiffani
Akridge, Nathaniel Creary,
LaMaras James, Geneviene Marc,
Stephanie Marotto, Katie
O'Neill, Zendarette Parker,
Sonya Vialva, Winter Walker,
Nyama Williams, Tashay Wright,
and Candace Young.
"Volunteering with the ELVIS
program was an incredible
experience. My career direction


was enhanced due to the
experience I received while
volunteering with the program,"
said Nyama Williams, office
manager for the Department of
Family Child Sciences at Florida
State University and a participant
in the first phase of the ELVIS
program.
The second wave of the ELVIS
program will be facilitated by the
Early Learning Coalition of the
Big Bend Region in conjunction
with several community partners
including Florida State
University; Jumpstart, a recent
finalist for the Volunteer of the
Year Award in the Nonprofit
Organization category; and local
citizens dedicated to touching the
lives of young children.
ELVIS can be spotted at ABC
Learning Center, New
Beginnings Daycare Center of
Midway, Precious Gems Day
Care/ Learning Center and The
Community Learning Institute
Child Development Center in
Gadsden County.
For those interested in
becoming ELVIS volunteers, a
training session will be held
Saturday, May 20, from 10 a.m.
to 2 p.m. at the Early Learning
Coalition Office, located at 325
John Knox Rd Building L, Suite
201, Tallahassee. To RSVP or
ask any further questions, contact
Lori Scheff at the Early Learning
Coalition Office, 850-385-0551
or at lscheff@elcbigbend.org.
The Early Learning Coalition of
the Big Bend Region is a not-for-
profit agency dedicated to
providing leadership and
advocacy that builds a
community where all children are
prepared for success in school.

GTI students

win in state

competition
Gadsden Technical Institute
students, along with 700 other
students from throughout the state
of Florida, demonstrated their
talents at the Vocational Industrial
Clubs of America (VICA) state
skills competition in Bradenton.
The competitions were held at
Manatee Technical Institute, March
24-26.
Rodney Meyer represented GTI's
VICA chapter and the applied

welding and in the chapter display.
Rodney won second place for the

The sundial serves a two-fold
purpose: a timepiece for the school
garden area, and it also addresses
the Skills USA theme "Champions
at Work: A Time to Learn Provides
a Time To Earn."
Shawn Williamson

School Board Member Judge Helms with students from Mrs. Porter's
and Mrs. Campos's kindergarten classes.

Stone soup teaches teamwork at GWM


To celebrate their Open Court
unit on teamwork, LaTasha
Dilworth-Porter and Melissa
Campos brought their
kindergarten classes together to
make "Stone Soup."
The idea was generated by one
of the leveled reading books,
"Stone Soup" by Heather Forest.
Each student was assigned an
ingredient from the story to


contribute to the soup.
Judge Helms, a member of the
Gadsden County School Board,
attended. ESOL paraprofessional,
Mrs. Young, was available to
accommodate our ESOL
students. She also provided the
stones for the soup. Overall the
students seemed to enjoy the
experience.


Maurine Branch Knight

to travel to China, thanks

to Sherry Smith Fellowship


Maurine Branch Knight,
librarian and media specialist at
Havana Middle School, has been
awarded the Sherry Smith
Fellowship.
The Sherry Smith. Fellowship
provides funds to a Gadsden
County teacher in order to help
defray the expenses of travel that
relate to the teaching field.
Knight will travel to Beijing,
China to attend the 30th IBBY
(International Board on Books for
Young People) World Congress.
Not only will she experience
China's unique and fascinating
culture, but she will also be on
the cutting edge with colleagues
from all over the world who have
an interest in both the welfare of
children through children's
literature and who are committed
to bringing books and children
together.
IBBY's mission is to promote
international understanding
through children's books, to give
children everywhere the
opportunity to have access to
books with high literary and
artistic standards, to encourage
the publication and distribution of
quality children's books,
especially in developing
countries; to provide support and


training for those involved with
children and children's literature
and to stimulate research and
scholarly works in the field of
children's literature.
The theme of the 2006 congress
is "Children's literature and
social development." The five-
day congress will include
seminars such as "Literature of
Ours-Children's Forum, in
which all the speakers will be
children; "Children's Literature
and Ethics," "Children's
Literature and the Ideal World,"
"Reading for Underprivileged
Children" and "Reflection on The
Phenomenon of Harry Potter,"
just to name a few.
Along with the seminars, the
congress committee has also
planned several tours. Knight will
tour the Forbidden City, now
called Palace Museum, the Great
Wall of China, the Summer
Palace and the Temple of
Heaven, where the group will
also be entertained by a Chinese
acrobatic troupe. .A night at the
Peking Opera has also been
planned.
Upon return, Knight will share
her experiences with colleagues
and the students of the Gadsden
County School District.

RFM freshmen tour Alabama RFM's second grade visits Tallahassee


The freshmen class at Robert F.
Munroe Day School traveled to
Alabama for an educational
excursion May 8 10 as part of
the ninth grade study of world
literature. They first went to the
battleship U.S.S. Alabama in
Mobile, followed by an afternoon
at the IMAX theater and Science
Center.
The Egyptian exhibit, now on
display, enhanced their visit to
the IMAX, where students
watched a movie about the
navigation of the Nile by raft.
On Tuesday, they traveled to
Monroeville to tour the old
courthouse and had a walking
tour of the town, which included
the former home sites of Truman
Capote and Harper Lee.


The class studied "To Kill a
Mockingbird," written by Harper
Lee, earlier in the year and
watched the movie based on the
book. The courthouse in
Monroeville was the model for
the one in the book and movie.
After lunch at the Courthouse
Caf6, they moved on to
Montgomery for an evening at
the Alabama Shakespeare
Festival, where they watched a
live performance of "To Kill a
Mockingbird."
Chaperones for the trip were
Jacqueline Dooner, Neal
Faircloth. Audrey Fletcher, David
Gardner, Susan Knight, and
Connie McLendon. Suzie
Johnson is the English I teacher
and sponsor of the annual trip.

San Louis Mission last week in Tallahassee. They learned about
how the Spaniards and Apalachee Indians lived peacefully
together for many years. The class then traveled to Lake Jackson
Indian Mounds for a picnic lunch and hike to the top of the
mound. Pictured at San Louis on the front row, l-r, Gracie
