Tuesday

Storytelling, crafts, African-
Caribbean dance and more will
mark the grand opening of
Quincy's new state-of-the-art
library facility next week.
Library officials encourage all
Gadsden County residents to
celebrate the grand opening of
"their library", the William A.
"Bill" McGill Library, Tuesday,
June 6, beginning at noon. The
library is located at ,732 Pat
Thomas Parkway.
"It's just an opportunity to
celebrate this new facility, and to
make sure citizens understand
this is the citizens' facility,"
Public Information Officer Jori
Brown said. "We just welcome
citizens out;,we want them to be
a part of this wonderful event."
County commissioners and
members of the McGill family
will speak at the opening, which
features a day full of activities for
the entire family, according to
Jane Mock, Gadsden County
Public Library director.
Tours will also be available for
the 14,500 square-foot facility, a
far cry from the old library
located in the ground floor ,of the
Woodham Justice Center.
"It is absolutely beautiful. We
are just so thrilled on how the
new facility has come together.
The staff and our visitors have
been equally excited about all of
the new features of this library,"
Mock said.
Amonth the "new features" are
a computer room, which houses
21 computers and "lightning-
fast" Internet; meeting rooms,
open for public use under certain
guidelines; a large, spacious
children's book section;
individual study rooms; a vast
collection of around 100,000
books and much more.
Although the new library first
opened its doors May 15, library
officials say they needed time to
"get the kinks worked out" before
celebrating the grand opening.

Proposal


(Special to the Times by Leslie Roberts)
Workers with the Florida Department of Transportation spent the Memorial Day weekend trying to repair
a section of Pat Thomas Parkway. The road collapsed Saturday morning following several weeks of work
by a PBS&J construction crew to replace a rusted culvert. It remained closed Tuesday morning.


Cave-in closes Pat Thomas


Special to the Times
By Leslie Roberts
No one was injured Saturday when part of Pat
Thomas Parkway collapsed, but the closing of the
road put a bit of a damper on some Memorial Day
weekend plans.
Saturday around 10:40 a.m. an employee with
PBS&J, an engineering firm with offices in
Tallahassee and throughout the country, noticed,.a
weak spot in the pavement over an underground
culvert the company had been working to replace.
He quickly put up cautionary orange construction
cones to stop traffic.
A Florida Department of Transportation crew
responded, and has worked to repair the road around
the clock since its collapse. The problem is in a
section of the road about eight miles south of
Interstate 10.
"It is a major route to the area," said Tommie
Speights, public information director for FDOT's
district three. "Part of the (southbound) shoulder
collapsed, but the center of the road is still intact."
Closed from Cooks Landing Road to State Road


65, Pat Thomas Highway is a thoroughfare many
Gadsden County residents use to get to Lake
Talquin or to Blountstown Highway and points
beyond. The rusted culvert that crews were working
to replace was installed in 1941.
Speights said FDOT will continue to work on
repairing the road around the clock. After boring
into the pavement during the weekend, FDOT
workers found several hollow spots beneath it into
which they are pumping a concrete mixture.
Speights said Tuesday he anticipated the work
would be completed "within a couple of days."
Quincy U.S. Post Office Postmaster Pam Briggs
said her office serves roughly 220 residents in that
area. Carriers, like other Pat Thomas Parkway
travelers, have to take Highway 65 through Hosford
to get to the affected parts of the area. It adds an
extra 25-30 miles 1o the drive.
She's carrying some of the routes herself to help
carriers compensate for the detour and get the mail
out on time.
For now, signs at I-10 and Blountstown Highway,
or State Road 20, continue to warn motorists.of the
closed road.


Havana re-elects mayor;


deals with growth issues


By BYRON SPIRES
Times Staff Writer.
Havana city council re-elected T.J. Davis
as mayor and Vernell Ross as mayor pro- "
tem. Both retain their positions as head of
the town's council.
Both men received high marks from
council members and were re-elected by
unanimous votes.
The four council members ran unopposed
in the last town election, T. J. Davis,
Vernell Ross, Bobby Miller and Shirley
McGill were sworn in as town council
members.
In other business:
* The council heard from city manager
Susan Freiden concerning the town's
newest subdivision, Twin Pines. The
subdivision received its final plans
approval and has started construction, she
said.
Freiden explained to the council that the
city would not be responsible for the
subdivision's storm water ponds
maintenance. The upkeep of the storm
water facility would fall to the
subdivision's homeowners association,
Freiden said.
* The Town of Havana and Talquin
Electric, the council was told, have reached
a territorial agreement. The agreement
which sets boundaries around the city for


electric, water and sewage services
provided by both entities will be for 15
years, Freiden said.
* Havana town employees will continue
to be covered under the Capital Health
Plan. The council voted to accept CHP as
tha town's health insurance provider.
* Freiden told the council that the town
would receive a $135,000 grant for a study
of expanding the town's sewage system
outside the town limits.
* The town's Waste Management
contract will expire in December, Freiden
told the council. She asked and got
permission to negotiate with another
garbage collection agency. Freiden said
that citizens should expect garbage
collection prices to increase based on the
rising cost of fuel.
* A number of minor thefts have occurred
in the town over the past few days town
police chief Brian reported. Mitchell
suggested that residents lock their homes
and -cars, and keep their garage doors
closed. He said he thought the thefts were
opportunity thefts and could be best dealt
with by locking doors.
* Council- member Vernell Ross told the
council about this year's summer program
sponsored by the Town of Havana, The
Havana Kiwanis and the Gadsden County

ER separate

issue; startup

help pledged

by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
Despite a riveting PowerPoint
presentation from Tallahassee
Memorial Hospital, Gadsden
Hospital, Inc. Board of Directors
followed staff recommendation
to allow presentations from
others to manage Gadsden
Community Hospital when it
reopens. ,
The first order of business,
however, for the board of county
commissioners and Gadsden
Hospital, Inc. is to get an urgent
care facility open.
"Ideally, we would like to
manage both," said Corey
Fleming, TMH administrative
resident.
He said that whether or not the
county chooses TMH to run the
entire hospital would not stop
them from helping get an urgent
care unit here.
The lack of an emergency room
in Gadsden is having a critical
impact on TMH's emergency
room.
"On any given Friday,
Saturday, and Sunday night we


have about 30 people from
Gadsden County in our
emergency room," Fleming said.
Hospital consultant Joseph
Sharpe said -the current
emergency room is in much
better shape physically than
many thought. Spencer Bowen,
the county's facilities manager
said work is already underway to
get the emergency room in order.
"We're working out there every
day and improving the situation."
At the earliest, a critical care
unit could open within the next
60 days. No one, however, was
willing to state that
unconditionally.
Sen. Fred Dudley, GHI board
member, asked Bowen if a
licensed building contractor had
taken a look at the emergency
room.
"I suggest you do that. We
don't want to do a lot of work
and find that we have' a leaky
roof," Dudley said.
In making, the TMH
presentation, Fleming told the
board that GCH will have access
to everything at TMH including
the creation of a public awareness
campaign once the hospital
reoperts and the pharmacy for
less expensive medicines.,
A Gadsden County website
would be created, and local
patients would have greater
access to physicians.

FCAT gains made again;


6 perfect writing scores


Much of county

remains below

state averages

By BRIAN DEKLE
Times Intern
Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test
(FCAT)scores are in, and Gadsden County
has made gains once again in many areas.
Despite many students falling below
grade level, six Gadsden County students
made perfect scores on the writing portion
of the FCAT.
These students were: Devonte Sampson,
Havana Middle School; Altrimese Ball,
Cassandra Bowden, Kyondra Hill and
Courtney Jones, East Gadsden High
School; and Michael Howard, Crossroads
Charter School.
The district still trails state averages in
every academic category tested, however.
Grades three, five, six, seven and nine
improved reading scores, and grades three,
five and seven improved math scores in
2006. Of the three classes that took the
science portion, grades five and 11 saw
improvement.
"I am proud of the progress that we are


making. While we trail in the region in the
overall number of students that are at a
level three (at grade level) or above, we are
among the leaders in progress made. Our
teachers are working to make sure that all
of our students continue to improve,"
Gadsden County School Superintendent
Reginald James said in a news release.
James added three factors instruction
"more in line with sunshine state
standards", a uniform reading program,
and "tremendous county support" were key
in this year's improvement.
Despite gains, many Gadsden County
students, particularly high school students,
are not at grade level, and the county as a
whole is behind much of the state.
Only 32 percent of Gadsden County
students tested at grade level or higher on
the reading portion of the FCAT,
compared with the state average of 57
percent. Likewise, only 37 percent of
Gadsden County students were at grade
level or above on the math portion,
significantly less than the state average of
61 percent.
Writing scores look better, as 71 percent
of Gadsden County students scored at
grade level or higher, nipping the heels of
the state average of 79 percent. Only
grades four, eight and ten take the writing

Church's youth
pitch in to help
those who need it

by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

Just days after school closed in
Leon County and many teenagers
are shaking off another school
year, students who attend
learn United Methodist
Church of Tallahassee are in
Gadsden County painting, putting
Qn new roofs, building
wheelchair ramps, replacing
shingles, and more.
* This is no fly-by-night group.
Even before fixing up homes for
lose who need help became a
popular television show, the
"Love At Work" mission was
busy.
* "This is our 13th year in
Oadsden County," said Susan
Sanders, one of two adult leaders
assigned to shepherd a crew of
eight students. The outreach
ministry spends a week each year
helping people who could use
some extra hands around the
house.
;This week Carol Price's home
On Third Street in Quincy is
getting a face lift. .The small
block home will be painted and
the tin roof, along with some
rotten beams, will be replaced.
Price said she could really use the
help because she is disabled and
has three sons, two are in school.
For the past two years she has
been trying to get help' to repair
lier windows and roof.
'About 85 students and adults
are scattered throughout the
county carrying out, they say, the
work of the Lord. It's one thing
to get teenagers to work, but it's
quite another to get them to raise
the money to.pay for the supplies
to fix up the homes, and take care


.of their own needs for a week,
including food.
"Each studentshas to raise $335
to participate in the program,"
Sanders said. Instead of going
home at the end of the day, the
students and adults stay at
Centenary United Methodist
Church Camp in Mt. Pleasant,
about 10 miles west of Quincy.
Amy Hodge, social work
coordinator, said projects are
selected through the Capital Area
Community Action Agency. "We
have partnered with the
community action's
weatherization program for
referrals. Others come through
word of mouth or people see us at
work and want to know how they
can get help," she said.
Seth Parsons, 12, said he would
have been celebrating getting out
of school this week, but chose to
spend his time helping others.
"Knowing that some people don't
live in houses as good as mine is
the reason I volunteered," said
the Swift Creek Middle School
student.
Joanna Hodge, 16, is
volunteering for the third year.
Somehow, it has become her job
to prime exterior walls. "I end up
doing it every year. I do not enjoy
it, but it is for the glory of God,"
she said with a smile.
The good part, she said, is the
chance to get out of Tallahassee
for a while. "I look forward to
this week every year," she said.
The group arrived Sunday
afternoon and will stay until this
Saturday. By the end of the week,
four teams will have fixed up ten
homes. "We don't do any inside
work like wiring or electrical,"
Sanders said.
Becca Stott, 16, is the veteran of
the group. "I've been coming
since I was in third grade." she
said. Stott has "skills" the other
teens say. With a hammer and
nail she can work wonders.

Illegal dumping not just one man's problem

by BRIAN DEKLE
Times Intern .


Old stereo systems, household
appliances, used tires, magazines,
condoms and even undergarments
can all be found at the end of
Watson Road, off U.S. 90, west
of Quincy.
The dusty, dead-end dirt road is
not the site of a rummage sale,
storage shed or even a legitimate
dump. It is, instead, just one of
many sites in Gadsden County
that has fallen victim to, illegal
dumping, and it is giving Lamar
Norton, local farmer and owner
of the land surrounding Watson
Road, a headache.
"It's gotten worse, it seems. It's
really gotten out of hand," Norton
says of the droves of people who
come down the secluded red clay
road to drop off unwanted
household garbage, furniture and
other refuse.
For 15 years Norton has battled,
to little avail, illegal dumpers and
other criminals among these,
Norton says, are drug dealers and
even prostitutes who seek
refuge for their "dirty deeds" at
the largely unpopulated dead end
turnaround of Watson Road.
Despite calls to the local sheriff's
office, followed by prompt
responses from deputies, the junk
still piles up, audaciously around
signs that read"Up to $500 fine
for littering".
"That sign don't mean nothing
(to illegal dumpers). I try to get
their tag numbers and vehicle
descriptions. You look and look
and look, but when you let your
guard down, that's when they do
it," Norton laments.
Unfortunately, Norton is not
alone in his struggle. Illegal
dumping is "definitely a
problem" in Gadsden County,
local Code Enforcement Officer
Tracy Smith says, evidenced by
rusted appliances and swelling
garbage bags sunk into the silt
bottoms of nearly every Gadsden
County creek, and other problem
areas throughout the county.
Unlawful disposal of household
garbage and other items carries a
stiff fine of up to $500, and more
than 100 illegal dumpers are
caught and prosecuted every year
on average. Yet it is impossible
for local law enforcement to keep
tabs on the countless cases of
dumping violations that occur
e'.er,, dJa', n G.,dden County.
"There's no way to see who
drops couches and other items on
roadsides and in creeks, and the
county suffers the expense,"
Smith says.
Suffer they do; that is, the
county's labor force. Gadsden
County Road and Bridge Director
Robert Presnell says in any given
week his crews may pick up
anywhere between 20 to 25 tons
of roadside junk, costing the
county vast amounts in fuel,
salaries and dumping fees $62
per ton at the county landfill.
The county isn't the only body
that must bear the weight of
excessive unlawful dumping,
however. Much of the garbage
that is illegally disposed of in
Gadsden County ends up on


private land.
Private wooded pine tree stands,
where garbage can be masked by
thick blankets of pine straw and
forgotten, are a common target.
Many times, however, such as in
Norton's case, garbage is dropped
off on farm land, where the
landowner must canrry the burden
of removing it, or in many cases,
watch helplessly as it piles up.
Regardless of where the junk is
dumped, however, the consensus
seems to be that the problem is
not getting any better. In fact,
both Norton and Smith feel it is
getting worse on account of rising
prices for legitimate waste
disposal.
"The county conmii i'..ne
need to see this and see what's
going on. We need .more
dumpsites and the county needs
to bring (dumping) prices down
so people will be more willing to
use them and not dump
elsewhere," Norton says.
"Right now in Gadsden County
people have two choices: to pay
$100 a year for county dumpsites
or to pay for Waste Management
services (a private waste pick-up
company based in Tallahassee).
You're often dealing with a case
of people piling up junk in their
yard for years. They've got no car
and can't afford to have it picked
up (by Waste Management), so
they pay someone to haul it off or
burn it." Smith concedes that the
five county dumpsites have
helped, but rising rates will deter


Eleven East Gadsden students leave

high school with associate's degrees


by BRIAN DEKLE
Times Intern

Recently, while hundreds of high
school graduates across Gadsden
County were happy to simply turn
their tassels, walk across a stage or
field, and take their diplomas, 10
East Gadsden High School students
decided to take it a step further and
left high school with a two-year
college degree.
Trevor Gunn, Norman Harris,
Shyrelle Home, Miranda Lewis,
Gabriel Mack, Kenneth Thomas,
Dontavius Tribue and Alondrea
Williams all graduated from EGHS
this year with not only a high
school diploma, but with an
assoULate degree from
Tallahassee Community College as
well.
The students were part of "dual
enrollment", a program designed to
give high school students a jump-
start on their post-secondary
education by allowing them to take
high school and college classes
simultaneously.
"Number one it (dual enrollment)
allows students to earn both (high
school diplomas and associate's
degrees). Secondly, some students
get bored because they're not
challenged with regular high school
work, and this provides an outlet
for them and gives them a real look
at the rigors of college. The
program also helps economically
by giving students an A.A. degree
for. free," Sharon Jefferson, TCC
vice president of student affairs,
said.
Dual enrollment students at
EGHS can begin college
coursework in the 10th grade,
possibly earning up to 30 hours of


college credits that transfer to any
Florida college or university, as
well as many out-of-state
institutions. Students take a
combination of high school and
college classes, usually "core" or
prerequesite courses, in the familiar
setting of EGHS during a normal
school day.
"I thought that it would be a good
opportunity to get a jump on my
future education. I want to be a
pediatrician, which requires many
years of study, so I thought if I
could cut out a few years, I could
be a doctor at a young age,"
Miranda Lewis, EGHS salutatorian
and recent dual enrollment
graduate, said. "I think more


students should do it because it's a
great, not good, opportunity that
helps you get ahead."
Lewis, who began taking college
courses in the 10th grade, said she
plans to attend the University of
Florida in the fall.
Another perk of the program is
that it is completely free, meaning
students can earn an associate
degree without paying high tuition
costs.
Schools across Florida currently
participate in the dual enrollment
program through partnerships with
their local community colleges.
West Gadsden High School also
participates in the dual enrollment'
program in Gadsden County.

people from using them.
Many times, the people who are
paid to "haul off" garbage, often
by elderly or the economically
disadvantaged, simply dispose of
the garbage illegally themselves.
This can put the hirer in
somewhat of a pickle at times, as
the garbage unlawfully trashed by
someone else often contains his
or her name and address a key
tool in catching illegal dumpers.
Such was the case, recently,
with an 80-year-old Gadsden
County woman. The woman
hired a youngster to take away
her garbage, which was illegally
dumped. Since it contained her
name and other personal
information t[his ended up in the
hands of local law enforcement.
Officials called the woman, but
after finding out her age and
situation, concluded it was unfair
to make her pick up the garbage
that was dumped illegally without
her knowledge.
Unless swift and radical action
is taken, illegal dumping will
likely continue to plague
Gadsden County, turning private
and public lands into veritable
landfills over time.
Until that time however, Norton
says he will continue to work
with local law enforcement, and a
newly-organized neighborhood
watch, steadfastly in the uphill
battle against "dirty dumping" on
his land and the county he calls
home.

Armadillo help


Dear Editor:

I would like to make a
comment. I read the article
about armadillos.
Help is on the way. Hello
Mr. Spires, it seems like no
one knows how to solve your
armadillo problem.
Well this message will.
Every animal is very
territorial.
Get your trap and set it in
Leon County. It's time to
catch an armadillo to get rid
of another armadillo.
Now for the fire ants, they
are the same.
Get one of your friends
and two shovels. Find two
ant beds. Now you mix your
ants with your friends' ants
and your friend mixes his
ants with yours.
This will not only get rid
of the ants but the bed also. I
have done this before and it
works, but if something goes
wrong, pack your bags and
go, because the ants and
armadillos will be waiting on
you the next day with a sign
saying, "get rid of the
landowner."

Planning issues


Dear Editor,

As a member of the
Gadsden County Planning
Commission, I feel an
obligation to offer a
correction, and to elaborate
on Byron Spires' article
"River Oak gets mixed use
approval" which appeared in
the May 25 edition of The
Times.
The article stated that "the
board passed the text
amendments with changes
including the criteria that


high density uses are
included in urban service
areas (near central water and
sewer)."
Proposed are
comprehensive plan text
amendments to create two
new land use categories,
high density residential
(allowing 12 units per acre),
and mixed use (10 units per
acre, residential and
commercial), both requiring
central sewer and water
service.
There was an amendment
offered and passed during
the May 22 workshop to
limit the use of these
categories of land" use to
urban service boundaries in
order to require these two
types of developments to be
located neat existing central
sewer and water facilities
provided by Talquin Electric
and the municipalities.
However, when the final
vote was taken on the text
amendments, the motion was
to eliminate the urban
service boundary location
criteria from the text. That is
what passed.
Therefore, the only
location criteria left in the
current proposal is that
"High Density Residential
land uses are appropriate
when located at or near the
intersections of collectors
and arterial roadways, within
relatively close proximity to
commercial uses where full
utility services are
available..." The mixed-use
category proposal has no
location criteria.
Combined with the
proposed revision to the
Sanitary Sewer Sub-Element
of the Comprehensive Plan,
which states, "the County
shall allow existing OSTDS
and package treatment plants
to be used in Urban Service
Areas and Rural Residential
Areas and package treatment
plants to be used in Mixed
Use and High Density


Residential Areas" means
that these high density (12
units per acre) and mixed use
(up to 10 residential units per
acre) could be located
virtually anywhere in the
unincorporated areas of the
county.
The representative from
Talquin Electric stated in the
Planning Commission
meeting that Talquin and
DEP prefers sewer provided
by the municipalities to
multiple onsite package
treatment plants.
Examples of High Density
uses are multi-storied
apartments, townhouses, and
condominiums. Mixed-use
can include high density
residential of up to 10 units
per acre (40-70 percent of
total. land),
commercial/retail/office (25-
30 percent), and
civic/public/parklands (10
percent).
These comprehensive plan
amendments, along with the
River Oak Plantation
development proposing to
use the mixed-use category,
will be presented to the
Board of County
Commissioners at their
Tuesday, June 6, meeting for
their action. This will be
your best opportunity to
voice your preferences on
the proposed new land use
categories.
Once they are approved
by the county and the Florida
Department of Community
Affairs, the developers will
begin using these land use
categories wherever there is
available land for sale in the
county. If %ou do not voice
your preference at this point
in the process, it will be too
late when a high density
apartment complex is being
proposed next to you,
regardless of where you live
in the county.

Thoughts about management


If you are a manager of a group of people,
how do you manage them?
For those of you who have never been in
that position, then the answer may seem simple
enough you just manage them, right?
It doesn't work that way.
I was at a recent Dale Carnegie class, held
by the Gadsden Chamber of Commerce, where
that was the topic of discussion.
There were a couple of revelations, of sorts,
I garnered from that class.
First, most people work more for gratitude
than they do for a paycheck. Now I know a
paycheck is important, but being appreciated is
actually ahead of that particular issue.
Another thing I thought was interesting was
that most employees want help with their
personal problems from management.
I do remember one of my cousins, an officer
in the Navy, saying that he spent an
importunate amount of time counseling his
subordinates with their personal problems.
I thought that was strange at the time, but I
guess it is a growing problem across the
workforce.
Being a manager or the person in charge is,
at best, a difficult job. I know; I did it for 21
years.
I came up under the old antage that you put
pressure on your subordinates and expect a
certain amount of performance from them. If
they didn't produce, then you pressured them
more or fired them, or at least threatened to
fire them.
I never liked that type of management, and
when I started managing people myself I did
not use that technique.
It was my idea that you built a team effort,
and then everybody produces his or her share.
I can already hear some of you present and
former managers out there starting to laugh,
but it was a noble idea.
What I found out very quickly was that,
although in theory it sounds great, in reality it
doesn't always work that way.
Eventually a manager is going to have to
manage. Those above him or her in the chain
of command expect certain things to be
accomplished. It is up to a manager to see that
those goals are met or in some cases exceeded.
It didn't take me long to adjust my own
personal management style.
I found it was easier to face issues straight
ahead; it worked best for me and the people
that worked under me.


As a manager you have to make some hard
decisions sometimes.
I once had an employee who forced me into
one of those hard decisions.
Before I go too far, let me say I was not a
taskmaster who stood over employees and
watched them work. Instead, I gave out
assignments and then expected them to be
accomplished.
This particular fellow failed to accomplish
what I had asked him to do ahd we had a talk
about it. This was not our first discussion
about his work ethic, by the way. He had been
a good employee, and all of a sudden, over a
period of a couple of months, his performance
went way down.
I started the conversation with how
disappointed I was in his work and asked him
if he had an explanation.
He looked at me and after a few minutes of
silence he told me he, too, was disappointed in
his performance.
There was no real explanation for his slack
work performance, he told me.
I'm lazy, he said, and really just don't feel
like working.
Well, his response shot my 30-minute
lecture all to heck. I was loaded for bear and
intended to lower the boom on him and give
him the choice of staying and doing the job or
hitting the road.
I was befuddled. I really didn't know what
to say.
We just stood there and stared at each other
for a few minutes.
How do you criticize someone who agrees
with you?
Out of desperation I asked him to tell me
what was really bothering him and why was he
acting so strange.
He broke down and told me what was
wrong.
Talking about the problem helped, and I saved
a good employee.
I'm not naive enough to believe this works
out that way every time, but in this case it did.
There is no great moral here, by the way;
only that sometimes, if an employee is worth
saving, then they are worth a little extra effort
to find out what is at the core of a problem.
The same applies from the employee's
perspective. If you want to keep your job and
there are problems, talk it over with the boss; it
may get better, and what have you got to lose
by trying.


Getting at eye level
This three foot gator was cruising along minding his own business when I took this photograph of him.
Notice the slot in his eye and his ears which'is the skin behind his eye sockets. I say it is a he, but actually I
don't know if it is male or female and really didn't care to find out.

...and how it works for you
Over the years we've found our Bridal Registry Service to be one of the most appreciated
of all the services we offer our customers. It makes it easy for you to select the perfect
wedding or shower gift because you know it's exactly what the bride is looking for.
The engaged couple registers their preferences in china, crystal, flatware and giftware.
We record this and update the list, as gifts are purchased, to avoid duplicates.
Visit us the next time you're shopping for wedding or shower gifts. We'll help you select
a gift the bride really wants. We'll even gift-wrap it. And the service is free!

10 The Gadsden County Times June 1, 2006


Teacher picnic


Senator Al Lawson shakes hands with Dwayne Ivory, president of the Gadsden County Classroom
Teacher Associaton, during a program that honored local public school teachers last Wednesday. Also
attending the event to show appreciation was Rep. Curtis Richardson. The event was sponsored by the
teacher's union, Florida Education Association, on the Courthouse Square. Nearly 200 teachers received gift
bags containing various items. They were also treated to grilled chicken, hot dogs, hamburgers, chips and
soft drinks. The appreciation cookout was the brainchild of Douglas Harris, a membership and organizing
specialist, with the FEA. He said the event was the first of its kind and he hopes to make it an annual event.


Schools participate in summer


feeding program for local kids


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
With school out for the summer some
children, sadly, would not get at least
two balanced meals during the day.
Again this year, the Gadsden County
School Board will be participating in
the Summer Feeding Program from
early June through late July at most
sites.
All children 18 years old or younger
are eligible for breakfast and lunch at no
charge provided the sie is open. This
national program is approved for areas
where 50 percent of the children qualify
for free and reduced meals during the
school year.
The sites, located at schools, can
provide meals for children in the
immediate area and they need not be
enrolled in the summer program. Below
are the summer meal sites:

Hospice group to
hold Alzheimer's
town hall meeting
According to the Alzheimer's
Association, Alzheimer's disease
strikes more African Americans
than whites.
In an effort to raise awareness,
Covenant Hospice is hosting a
town hall 'meeting on
"Alzheimer's in the African
American Community" June 1
from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m.
The meeting will be held at
Antioch Missiofnary, Baptist
Church located at 1003 West
Clark Street in Quincy.
A panel of experts will discuss
Alzheimer's symptoms,
diagnosis, treatment options,
disease stages, caregiver stress,
legal aspects of dementia and
how hospice can help patients
and families.
"Research suggests that factors
such as high blood pressure, high
cholesterol, diabetes and heart
disease may play a part in the
higher incidence of Alzheimer's
in African-Americans," Marina
Brown, community educator for
Covenant Hospice, said.
Vascular disease, and its ,
associated risk factors, is
believed.to be a key trigger in the
manifestation of Alzheimer's
disease.
Studies show that persons with
a history of either high blood
pressure or high cholesterol
levels are twice as likely to get
Alzheimer's. Vascular disease
and its risk factors are
disproportionately higher in
African-Americans.
"Part of Covenant Hospice's
mission in serving Tallahassee
and the surrounding eight
counties is to make a concerted
effort to reach out to minority
patients, those who live in rural
areas and those who have a non-
cancer diagnoses," Brown said.

The panelists for the seminar
include Angela Massey, Pharm.
D, FAMU; Robert Gluekauf,
PhD; Alice Pomidor, M.D.,
Florida State University; Fred
Flowers, Esquire; and Joseph
Dorn, M.D, Covenant Hospice.
There will also be literature
available from the Alzheimer's
Association, Tallahassee
Memorial Hospital Memory
Disorder Clinic, STARZ (an
outreach project for caregivers),
and the ARCH project. To

The Gadsden County Times June 1, 2006 11



Williams family one of the lucky ones...they're back home


One of 'our'

Katrina families

back in New

Orleans

by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

"It's still hard to believe" said Josh
Willliams, Jr. as he relaxed in the living
room of his parents' Gretna home
Monday morning.
Williams, with his wife and four
children, evacuated before Hurricane
Katrina for Gretna last August. The
family, now back in New Orleans, is
starting over.
"We have bought a house about five
minutes from where we lived before in
Algiers or East New Orleans where there
was the least damage. The children are
back in school and I'm working," he
said.
But things are different now. "Some of
our friends are back and some of them,
those who lost everything, will never
come back. They have gotten jobs in
Atlanta and Dallas and they're just going
to stay there," he said.
The Williamses count themselves
lucky. His employer, YMCA, called him
back to work and was able to give him a
substantial allowance to move back.


Dealing with insurance companies, he
said, was a nightmare but he was able to
navigate the red tape and paper work to
get a settlement toward the new home.
Before the hurricane, the home would
have sold for around $170,000. The
Williams' had to pay about $250,000.
From August to January the family was
in Gadsden County. At one point, as
many as 14 extra people lived in the
home of Josh, Sr. and Jewel Williams.
The extended family Josh, Jr.'s father-
and' mother-in-law, James and 'Joan
Graves. James Graves had undergone
major surgery just before the hurri-ane.
Josh and his wife, Jeanine, drove back to
New Orleans just days after Katrina
passed through and brought them back to
Gretna. "They are fine now. He has 'gone
back to work as a barber and she has
returned to her job with a
communications company," he said.
"I can't say enough about the kindness
of the people here. I really want to thank
everyone for their financial support and
their prayers. I especially want to thank
the City of Quincy, Sheriff Morris
Young and the Gadsden County Sheriff's
Office, St. Stephens Church, my sisters
in the Gadsden County Alpha Kappa
Alpha Sorority, and Mr. Reginald
James," he said.
Williams said because James gave him
a contract position in the technology
department with the school district, he
was able to handle the situation. "The job
gave me something to do other than sit
down and worry about what was going


on. I couldn't do anything about it
anyway. They got my kids in school so
they would have a routine and my wife
finished her credits to become a Licensed
Practical Nurse at Lively," he said.
Jeanine Williams will return later this
month to take the State Board
Examination to become an LPN.
The YMCA of USA headquarters also
adopted the
Williams
family. "Somef
Employees
sent the
family a friends are
computer,
and sent
wrapped some of o
gifts for the
children as w ho
well as a
financial
gift. CVerytI. -.
Still, there
is no place never con
like home
and New
Orleans is Josh W
the family
home.
"We're
going to stay. Katrina should have taught
everybody a lesson. I have never had a
problem listening to people. If I had to
do the same thing over again,, I would do
it the way I did it before," he said,
referring to getting out of the city at the
first warning, and knowing how to be


prepared. The family is well educated
about hurricanes and they will evacualte
again if the need arises. The children, he
said, are adjusting but bad weather is
sometimes associated with hurricanes.
This week when the FEMA checks are
cut off, Williams said 6ie fears people
will be ill-prepared. FEMA trailers are an
all too familiar site. Many trailers sit in


-of our

Sbach and

,m, those

ne bac- -,"

illiams, Jr.


front of
homes that
are in need of
major repairs
or should be
demolished.
"The
government
gave them
$80,000 for
trailers when
many of them
could be back
in their homes
with that
same $80,000.
There has
been a lot of
money
wasted," he
said.
Nevertheless,


he is sure New Orleans will comes back.
"It will take from 3 to 5 years, maybe
more, but it will never be the same.
There will be a lot of greenspace because
no one will be able to built where it
flooded," he said.
Williams said in a way Hurricane

Katrina was worse than 9-11 because of
the number of families that were affected -
and displaced. Bodies, he said, are still
being found. Just a month ago the funeral
of a co-worker's mother was held.
"There are a lot of bodies that can't be
identified, they're just there. The last
count I heard was something like 1,300.
Whether they'll ever find all of them is
unknown. You have to look at it as a
whole city gone. And there are the
lingering health concerns," he said.
The business district is returning. The-.
hotels are almost all open. Last week the '
zoo amd aquarium opened and so did
Jackson Square. City officials are
anxious to get the attractions open to lure
tourists to bring dollars to boost the
economy.
New Orleans will never be the same.
"There are a lot of new faces. In the
schools, most are in Algiers now, there
are a lot of new students. People seem to
have a new attitude. I used to go the
sleep worrying about things. I don't
worry anymore. I can see why the people
(in New Orleans) have the attitude they
have. You do what you can and the rest
you don't worry about," Williams said.
The hurricane has taught them some
practical things, too. "We need two
(bank) accounts. I am enrolled in the'
Masters and PhD program at Colorado
Tech to increase my skills and I am'
going to finish that, hopefully in the top
ten percent. I have so much to be
thankful for, but whatever will be, will-
be," he said.


Literacy

volunteers

Throughout the years
hundreds of volunteer hours are
logged by people who give of
their time to help adults in
Gadsden County learn to read.
Last week, Gadsden Literacy
Volunteers of America president
Richard Crutcher, (left) thanked
volunteer tutors Grace Powell
Jones secondd from left) and Judy
Sutton for their years of
dedication. Also on hand for the
presentation was LVA executive
director Earnestine Barkley
(right). About 50 people
attended the annual event which
honored volunteer tutors and
recognized adult learners and
board members. All volunteers
received certificates of
appreciation. Catherine Jackson
and Alice DuPont received pins
recognizing their 15 years of
service on the Board.

,that she had about 10 vacancies
to fill.
"It was a combination of things;
retirees, pregnancies, moving,
and people getting married
caused a lot of it," she said. Then,
there is the class size law that
limits the number of students in a
class. Blitch had to add another
class to each of the five grades at
her school. Hers is the largest
elementary school in the county
with about 750 students.
"Our school is the school of
choice for many parents. We
have the new apartment complex
opening soon that's in our service
area and we expect about 100
children coming from there to our
school," she said.
So when the school district's
personnel director, Dr. Dianna
Decker, held teacher hiring day
recently at the Gadsden Arts
Center, Blitch was more than

At the end of the day she had
hired four new teachers. One was
so excited that she went to take a
tour of the school before heading
back home.
"I was looking for people who
are creative and who are excited
about teaching. If they don't have
that, then they aren't for George
Munroe," she said.
In all 77 prospective teachers
were interviewed and at the end
of the day 22 were hired. Decker
said this year's Teacher Hiring

By BYRON SPIRES
Times Staff Writer

Over the past two months the
Gadsden County Times has run
several articles concerning the
national debate over immigration.
Two gatherings at the Gadsden
County Courthouse by some of
the local Hispanic population
gave this otherwise national
problem some local roots.
Many businesses in this county
depend on immigrant labor as
their employee pool. The
decisions made in Washington,
D.C. concerning immigration will
have a direct effect on Gadsden
County and its economy.
With the buying power of
millions of dollars of payroll at
stake, those decisions become
even more important.
It is estimated that there are 12
million illegal immigrants in the
United States.
The United States Senate passed'
a comprehensive immigration-
reform bill on May 25. The
much debated bill follows along
similar lines of President George
W. Bush's recent television
speech concerning his ideas of
what should be done to reform
immigration in America.
The bill passed the senate in a


INTEREST
ADJUSTMENT
TERM


62-36 vote and has some far
reaching effects.
Some of the high points of the
bill are:
The bill calls for all illegal
immigrants in the country for less
than two years to be returned to
their countries.
Those who have been in the
country illegally for two to five
years would be eligible to stay
and work for another three years
under a -**"deferred mandatory
departure" provision. Once the
three years are completed they
must leave the country and
reapply for a guest worker
program.
Those who have been here
five years or longer will be
eligible to become permanent
legal citizens in six years after
paying penalties, back taxes,
learning English and passing a
background check.
Illegal immigrants who have
committed one felony or three
misdemeanors will be deported.
A 596-kilometer fence along
the U.S.-Mexico border and more
jails are included.
The bill will go to a committee
of both the House and the Senate
to attempt to work out a
compromise between the
legislative bodies.

Once applications had been
completed, it was time for the
prospects to have a face-to-face
meeting.
Willie Green, who will become
principal at Carter-Parramore
Academy this fall, was looking
for a Dropout Prevention teacher
and a behavioral specialist. He
said he met an individual he
thought would be an asset to the
school, but he missed hiring him
by minutes. "He had been hired
by another, I wanted him, too.
The good thing is that he will be
in the district.
Decker said she plans to hold
another hiring day for elementary
schools later this summer. "We
had more inquiries for secondary
schools this time and we still
need elementary teachers," she
said.
And while Gretna Elementary
School principal Alma West did
get to hire all of the personnel she
needed, she remained optimistic.
"This was an excellent idea. We
had the opportunity to talk with.
them and feel them out. When
people come knowing what is
expected of them, you have more
choices," she said.

. Decker said she too was
impressed with the caliber of
candidates that attended. "There
were only about one or two that
we didn't feel we could
interview," she said. Most,
Decker said, were professional
and had the typical questions of
employers.
That's why Patricia Beamon
was on hand to answer questions
about salaries and benefits. "Most
of them were impressed with our
medical, dental and vision plans
and the options we are able to
offer," she said.

Bulldogs don't seem to be as loaded as the\ ha'e been in the
past. FSU could hate been sent to a lot tougher place.
Florida has thiee teams besides FSU and J.U. in the

Retired grandmaster returns to karate


Submitted by: Johnny Bumrns A


After almost two years of
retirement, Grandmaster Johnny
Bums (i.e. Shinjimashu's ninth
degree black belt) of Quincy
returned to tournament karate
fighting. Two years ago, he was
the undisputed, undefeated, super
heavyweight champion of
Georgia, Florida and Alabama in
his discipline and division.
At only 204 lbs. he was both
the lightest and the oldest man to,
ever hold the title. (Note:
children and teens, unlike in
boxing, always focus on "light
contact" during competitions; but
usually masters have the option
of going full contact.)
Master Burns had no intention
of.coming out of retirement, but
the word was out that "he had
best not return," because as many
as five new and younger masters
were determined to control the
division.
Master Bums was warned of
the danger of having to compete

with so many masters, and he
was told about the "hard lesson"
that he might learn if he returned.
However, Master Burns has
always been keen on education,
so he sent word ahead of time to
let the competition know that he
was coming back for them to'
teach him a so-called "hard
lesson!"
On May 20 Master Burns (who
breaks bricks with his hands)
"walked away" from the Lawton
Chiles High School gymnasium
with every first place trophy
possible in the Super Senior
Executive Division. First place -


,eapon-,, Irii place lig i ling
After all those ominous
messages, not one of his
esteemed competitors showed
up!
Each year, the karate
tournament is held in Tallahassee
by Professor Gallop's Karate
School for the purpose of raising
charity money for youth build
activities in this area. The
tournament, Gallop's Youth
Build Tournament, has been
active for 24 years, and karate
teachers and'their students were
there to compete and learn from
others from Georgia, south
Florida, Alabama, etc.
. As a black belt Master Burns
has never known defeat in any
type of fight. He has never
fought for money, and he has
never charged any of his students


for lessons. In the past, he has
bought uniforms and fight gear
for up to 95 percent of his
students whose parents couldn't
afford it.
He also financed free trips for
those same students to visit and
compete in tournaments like the
U.S. Open in Orlando, and the
international competitions in
Gainesville (about 30 students
were there).
Master Burns feels that students
can gain invaluable experience
by competing in such
tournaments, especially those
who have hopes of making a
career out of martial arts. Some
of his students have gone on to
become executive members of
police forces, while others have
been bodyguards for U.S.
legislators. Master Burns taught
free karate schools for 33 years.
He says "I guess I'll retire now!"
Master Burns was surprised to
notice that not one student from
the new karate school in Quincy
at the Campbell-Kelly Center
was .at the Tallahassee
tournament in spite of its close
proximity.
He now makes a personal
appeal to their instructors to enter
our talented youth in the
tournament experience next year.
Master Burns is father to
Nepertari black belts, Eric and
Zerald, and to professional
boxers Rev. Richard Burns,
Shinny and Christopher Burns,
who run the Burn's Fighting
Tigers Boxing Gym of Quincy.
Before now, no one from
Quincy has ever returned home
with three first place trophies.


on May 31, 2006, so now is the
time to get registered. The
instructor for the class is local
resident Thomas Lynn of Lynn's
Taekwondo Academy. This
program is one of the few offered
by QPRD that the entire family can
participate in. Stop by the Ferolito
Recreation Center located at 122
North Graves Street or visit the
class to register.
QPRD HOST MEADOWLARK
LEMON BASKETBALL CAMP:
The Quincy Parks & Recreation
Department will sponsor a
basketball camp beginning on
Thursday, June 8, 2006 and ending
on Saturday, June 10, 2006 at
Shanks Middle School. Former
Harlem Globetrotter Meadowlark
Lemon will host the camp. The fee
for the three-day camp is $30 per
child (boys and girls ages seven and
older), which includes lunch,
individual daily instruction, camp t-
shirt, awards, various competitions
and lots of fun. The camp will
culminate with an autograph
session and awards presentation for

Hospital


Continued from Page 1
"One of your problems will be public perception
when the hospital opens. We will be able to help
you let the community know that it has re-opened,"
he said.
Several GHI board members agreed that TMH has
a good public relations office but said they have to
keep their image before the public in Leon County
because they have competition in Tallahassee that
they will not have in Gadsden County.
Fleming assured the board that the lack of
competition would not prevent them from doing
their best.
When board members asked how TMH planned to
manage the hospital, Fleming said they would
employ a Chief Executive Officer to run the day-to-
day operations at Gadsden.
"Will this person be employed by you or by us?"
asked GHI board chairman Craig McMilllan.

FCAT


Continued from Page 1
portion of the FCAT, however.
Science scores statewide were low, with only an
average of 34 percent of Florida students scoring at
grade level or above. Nonetheless, Gadsden County
students still fell short, with only 11 percent testing
at grade level or higher. Only grades five, eight and
11 take the science portion of the FCAT.
Despite this bleak comparison, James said he
thinks the district is "on the right track" for getting
students to grade level. The district plans to
accomplish this, he explained, by implementing
certain academic programs based on a "continuous
improvement model".
"You've got to give credit where credit is due in
ihe classroom. Teachers are working hard and
students are working hard, and when people see


Fleming said that was an issue to be worked out.
Then, McMillan reminded TMH representatives
that they (TMH) are the reason "we're in the shape
we're in now." He was referring to TMH's abrupt
pull-out more than ten years ago, leaving the
hospital without management.
It was after the pullout that the county was forced
to hastily hire a management firm that led to a series
of poor management firms, the last of which was
Ashford, Inc.
The Agency for Health Care Administration cited
six pages of shortcomings by Ashford when they
closed the facility on Nov. 4, 2005.
Not wanting to be judged by what others may have
done, Fleming told the board that the current TMH
administrators are new people with new ideas who
want to be partners with GCH and to work together.
"We want to go hand-in-hand. We would establish
mutual expectations in writing," Fleming said.
GHI said its decisions would be based on what is
best for the county once all presentations had been
heard.
success they want to build on that success," he said.
In all academic areas, particularly reading, FCAT
scores show a clear trend of Gadsden County high
schoolers falling behind grade level more so than
their younger counterparts. Only seven percent of
Gadsden County 10th graders scored at grade level
or higher on the reading portion, compared to 57
percent in grade three.
. From grade three to grade 10 reading and science
scores fell consistently from grade to grade in
Gadsden County and in the state as a whole.
James said he agreed with Education
Commissioner John Wind, that the problem is
primarily in high schools, but the negative trend can
be headed off.
"High schoolers deal with more issues than any
other group. My emphasis is to get students to be
more proficient readers by the fourth grade, then we
can head off problems before high school," he said.
Other Gadsden County students made perfect
scores in other areas, but their names were
unavailable before press time.

WGHS's Ronnie Jackson breaks away from tackles in an open field run.


Everybody's after this failed pass attempt by West Gadsden


It takes three East Gadsden players to bring down WGHS's Ron Burns!




East meets West

Jags vs. Panthers in spring Jamboree!

Photos by Byron Spires Story by Joe Ferolito


Ron Gordon made a big-time play. Ronnie
Jackson made an even bigger one.
Jackson ran down Gordon, caused a fumble, then
recovered it to preserve a 13-8 "Soul Bowl" Spring
Football Classic win Friday for West Gadsden over
East Gadsden in Greensboro.
On. a night that saw the football bounce all over
the place, Jackson's play seemed a fitting end to
things in the first- ever athletic meeting between the
county schools.
It came with just one minute and 48 seconds left in
the game after Gordon had rambled 51 years with a
screen pass, giving what looked like a chance for the
Jaguars to win the see-saw encounter.
The Panthers took a first-held 7-0 lead in the game
on a 13-yard touchdown run by Ron Burns and a
p.a.t. kick by Jose Caldron.
East Gadsden, behind the running of Gordon and
Darious Jackson, threatened themselves in.the first
half but were stopped on two occasions by West
Gadsden's Pierre Edwards, who recovered fumbles.
Bums and running mate Chris Williams also rolled
up ground yardage for the Panthers in the first half,
but a lost fumble and a Darious Jackson pass
interception stopped their touchdown tries.
Late in the third quarter, West Gadsden drove
inside the Jaguar 15 and looked like they might add
to their points when Gordon made a play that gave
the edge to East Gadsden.
The senior-to-be stripped the ball and zipped 91
yards for six points. D. Jackson's two-point pass
made it 8-7 for the Jaguars.
West Gadsden came back moving the ball to the
East Gadsden five before losing a fumble midway
through quarter four.
That gave East Gadsden a chance to kill the clock
as they churned out three first downs. With less than
three minutes left, the fumble bug-a-boo hit again
and the Panthers' Murell Birch recovered a Jaguar
miscue right at mid-field. West Gadsden took
advantage of the chance when Burns took just two
runs, one for 45 yards, and the other for 5 yards to
put the Panthers up 13-8.


Coach Thomas


Here came the
Jaguars!
I Beginning at their
own 17 they got
the ball to their
39, overcoming a
15-yard penalty
- along the way.
Gorden then
collected a screen
pass, and, with a
determined run,
: raced down to the
West Gadsden
10, only to be
chased down by
R. Jackson on the
game-saving
play.
"The ball


bounced our
way," said
Panther Head
Coach Robert
Jackson. "Either
Steam could have
won, but I'm not
11K.complaining;
we'll enjoy this
all summer. It
was really just a
big scrimmage
between two
T wn schools, but the
crowd enjoyed
Coach Jackson it."
"They just beat
us both on offense and defense," East Gadsden
Coach Rodell Thomas commented. "I thought they
played harder than we did. But we learned some
things and we'll be looking to August."
That's when the two schools meet again in a pre-
season "Soul Bowl" Classic.


An East Gadsden runner is brought down by WGHS's Jessee Winbush and Pierre Edwards.


East Gadsden cheerleaders kept the near-capacity crowd cheering for the Juguars at Friday
night's game.

If you would like to share news
about your school's activities you
may submit news and photos to
gctimes@comcast.net. School
items are free of charge, but must
be submitted by 9 a.m. Monday for
that week's issue. Information may
also be faxed to us at 627-7191 or
brought to our office at 15 S.
Madison, Quincy.


Volunteer awards
The Gadsden County School board recently held its annual Parent Information Expo and Partners
Celebration, a "picnic on the green," next to the central office. The event, held Tuesday, May 23, honored
volunteers and faith based partners who lend their helping hands to local schools and their students. Pictured
above are "exceptional volunteer service" winners, Who were honored for their "above and beyond" efforts.


Bainbridge College Vice-
President of Academic Affairs
Dr. Rob Gingras has announced
the names of students who earned
the distinction of being named to
the Dean's List and those named
to the Honors List during Spring
Semester 2006.
Those named to the Dean's List
must have earned a 3.5 (B+)
grade point average (GPA) or
better while attending BC full-
time.
Honors List students must also
have earned a 3.5 GPA but have
attended BC on a part-time basis
(taking 7-11 semester hours of
courses).
Ellis Bryant of Quincy and
Quondra Browning of Havana
are on the BC Honors List.


The "great exodus" is what the last day of school can be referred
to at Havana Middle School. The last day came and went.
According to most teachers, it was a very good last day of school.
The students were hyper and excited about leaving. It was a
bittersweet experience, especially for the departing eighth graders.
One eighth grader said, I'll miss HMS. I didn't think I would,
but I'll miss yall." Another eighth grader said, "This is my last,
last day of school at HMS and I know it's a final one." The majority
of the eighth graders realized that when they leave this year, they
won't return in the fall. The faculty and staff wished the kids a fond
farewell, and yelled as the buses drove out of sight, "Have a great
summer!"


Stewart Street "reaches for the stars" j
For the past four weeks Stewart Street Elementary students have "k
been reading, reading, reading and reading trying to reach a goal of
6,000 books read in one month.
Well we sure did reach and stretch ourselves. While we didn't quite
.reach the goal, we did read 5,455 books in one month. Kudos to
~everyone who helped, participated and worked to make this contest a
F' J ,.. success, especially Mrs. Donalson, our media assistant, who .
S .spearheaded this campaign.
L The classes that read the most books were: Mrs. Monroe's second
grade class with 889, Mrs. Jeanette Green's first grade class with 458,
and Mrs. Houser's third grade class with 448.
Those classes have earned a "wild wing ding pizza party." The top
." two readers in the competition KeTrika Mitchell and Crystal Powell
"have won a bicycle! Also, the top 55 students in the school each
recieved an individual pizza celebration.
1 Certificates, pencils, and recognition were given to every child who
participated. So parents, let's keep the trend going with some great
summer reading!


Stewart Street Elementary top readers Crystal Powell (1) and
Keterika Mitchell are pictured here with their new bikes, won for
reading more than anyone in the school during the month of May.
Powell, a third grader, read 58 books and Mitchell, a second grader,
read 106 books.


Faculty Spotlight


seen in recent years.


Assistant professor
of Early Qhildhood
Education Jeanne
Barker is extremely
pleased with the
tremendous growth
TCC's Early Child-
hood Development
and Education
Department has


"The program has blossomed beyond our
wildest expectations," Barker gushed. "We
began with one full-time employee and have
grown to a staff to six. Students are now
pursuing their Director's Credential and-their
A.S. degree in Early Childhood Education in
addition to the completing their Child Develop-
ment Associate (CDA) credential."
Another positive aspect of the CDA program
is that it offers courses on-line. This enables
students from all over the state and country to
take courses.
Currently in her second year of teaching full-
time at TCC, Barker spent the past five years
as an adjunct professor at the College. She
has taught at all levels of education Including
serving as an elementary school principal and
teaching at Nova Southeastern University and
Florida State.
The Ohio University grad admits that her fa-
vorite part of what she does is the interaction
she has with the students, while her biggest
rewai d is seeing the students walk across the
stage at the Civic Center to receive their A.S.
degrees.


Great kids doing great things!

such facts are in dispute
and otherwise shall con-

final decision of the per-
mitting authority on the
application have the right
to petition to become a
party to the proceeding,

Top 10 list for teens: How to find a summer job


Each summer, thousands of area teens
want to land a great job, and now is the
time to begin. Below are 10 tips
Workforce Plus offers teen jobseekers to
help improve their chances of finding
and keeping summer employment. With
the unemployment rate at a record low,
teen job seekers have a great opportunity
to begin their careers with many different
businesses and industries this summer.
1. Look everywhere, talk to everyone -
Looking for a job is serious, time-
consuming work. Tell everyone you
know you are looking for a job. This
includes family, teachers, friends,
counselors, parents' friends everyone.
Search online for places that hire teens.
Ask your local businesses if they're
looking for summer help (corner stores,
video stores, grocery stores, golf courses,
etc). The more you ask, the more likely
someone will say, "you're hired!"
2. Know your business If you want to
work for a specific employer or you are
offered an interview, find out as much


possible about that business. If the
interviewer asks you business-related
questions, your knowledge is sure to
impress. Also, if you're approaching a
business that may or may not be looking
for summer help, the more you know, the
better your pitch.
3. First impressions do matter When
anyone is searching for a job, even teens,
they should dress for success and be as
professional as possible. Job search
activities are not the time to display the
latest fashion trends or current slang. It is
best to be over-dressed or "too
professional" 'than not enough. At the
very least,' teens should wear clean,
pressed, well-fitting slacks and dress
shirts with clean, appropriate shoes. No
mini-skirts, halter-tops, sagging jeans
and so on. Feel free to dress in your own
style outside of work but when looking
for a job, traditional impressions are best.
4. Learn how to apply for a job Know
in 'advance how to complete an
application, have a resume prepared


(even if you don't have formal work
experience) and make sure you take
information with you like addresses,
phone numbers and other contact
information you will need to include on
an application. This is very important, as
you may have to complete an application
on the spot with a limited amount of
time.
5. Practice interviewing This may feel
awkward but can help prepare you for
the real thing. Having practiced answers
to routine questions will help you sound
more professional and be less
intimidating should the employer ask
something for which you are not
prepared. At the very least, practice
talking about yourself beforehand.
6. Follow-up with employers If you
have an interview, thank the employer
then follow-up the interview with a thank
you letter. This shows the employer you
are serious about wanting the job and can
help you stand out from all the other
teens applying for the job. Ask the


employer when you might hear about the
job so you can follow-up if you don't
hear back by that time.
7. Be a good employee Once you're
hired, be sure to get there on time, show
up everyday, listen to instructions and be
a positive team player. Employers want
someone who is dependable and willing
to work hard. Oftentimes, one summer
job can lead to next year's summer job!
It can also provide you a positive
reference for future job or school
.endeavors.
8. Grades count Get the best grades
possible. Sometimes employers have to
choose between a few candidates who
seem all "the same" getting good
grades can make you the "one."
9. Volunteer Although it's tough to
get experience on your resume, you can
participate in community activities
and/or volunteer to boost up your
resume. These activities will make you
shine in the eyes of someone looking for
employees.


10. Get assistance with your search -
Besides telling everyone you know,
Workforce Plus offer FREE assistance
with writing resumes, practicing
interview skills, and looking for open
positions. Visit www.wfplus.org to find
the location nearest you.
Workforce Plus is the workforce
development board serving Gadsden,
Leon, and Wakulla counties. These
services are provided to both jobseekers
and employers. Jobseeker assistance
includes access to the largest jobs
information system, job placement and
access to a resource center for help with
employment-related needs. Business
services include recruitment and
placement assistance, screening and
testing applicants and providing
information on tax credits. All services
are provided at no cost. Workforce Plus

Sign-up for USDA hurricane

assistance under way for '05


Sign-up began May 17, 2006
for four crop and livestock
assistance programs through
USDA Farm Service Agency
(FSA) that will provide aid to
producers affected by the
destructive 2005 hurricanes,
Kevin Kelley, SED, said.
The four programs Livestock
Indemnity Program,- Feed
Indemnity Program, Hurricane
Indemnity Program and Tree
Indemnity Program are funded
to use $250 million from U.S.
Department of Agriculture
Section 32 funds.
To be eligible for this
assistance, a producer's loss must
have occurred in one of 261
counties that received a primary
presidential or secretarial disaster
designation due to 2005
Hurricanes Dennis, Katrina,
Ophelia, Rita or Wilma.
Assistance is unavailable for
losses in contiguous counties. A
list of the eligible counties in
Alabama, Florida, Louisiana,
Mississippi, North Carolina and
Texas is available at:
http://www.usda.gov/Hurricaneln
fo.xml
The Livestock Indemnity
Program (LIP) will provide
payments to eligible livestock
owners and contract growers who
incurred the death of livestock
due to the hurricanes. To
determine payments, USDA's
Farm Service Agency (FSA) will
multiply the number of eligible
livestock by the payment rate of:
for livestock owners, 75 percent
of the livestock's average fair
market value; or for contract
growers, 75 percent of the
average sustained income loss.
More information on LIP is
available in the online LIP fact
sheet at: www.fsa.usda.gov.
The Feed Indemnity Program
(FIP) will provide payments to
eligible livestock owners and
cash lessees who suffered feed
losses or increased feed costs due
to the hurricanes. To calculate
program payments, FSA will
multiply the national payment
rate established for each livestock
category by the number of
eligible livestock. More
information on FIP is available in
the online FIP fact sheet at:
www.fsa.usda.gov.
The Hurricane Indemnity
Program (HIP) will provide
payments to eligible producers
who suffered crop losses and
received either a Federal Crop
Insurance Corporation crop
insurance indemnity or a FSA
Noninsured Crop Disaster
Assistance Program (NAP)
payment. Producers' HIP benefits
will equal 30 percent of the crop
insurance indemnity or 30
percent of the NAP payment.
More information on HIB is
available in the online HIP fact
sheet at: www.fsa.usda.gov
The Tree Indemnity Program
(TIP) will provide payments to
eligible owners of commercially
grown fruit trees, nut trees,
bushes and vines that produce an
annual crop and were lost or
damaged due to the hurricanes.
FSA will base TIP payments on
the crop's proximity to the
hurricanes based on established
tiers, which reflect the severity of
damage from least to most
severe. More information on TIP
is available in the online TIP fact
sheet at: www.fsa.usda.gov
USDA is also providing $25
million in block grants to the
state governments of Alabama,
Florida, Louisiana, Mississippi,
North Carolina and Texas from
Section 32 funds. The funds are
to provide assistance to producers
raising aquaculture species in a
controlled environment as part of
a farming operation. Governors
or their designees will determine
sign-up procedures for the
assistance and will distribute the
funds to eligible aquaculture
producers to help them recover


from the devastating effects of
the hurricanes of 2005. More
information on the aquaculture
grants is available in the online
fact sheet at: www.fsa.usda.gov.
Additional funds have been
designated in response to the
2005 hurricane disasters.
Approximately $200 million is
designated for the Emergency
Conservation Program, $400
million for the Emergency
Forestry Conservation Reserve
Program and $300 million for the
Emergency Watershed Protection
Program (which is available to
communities and landowners in
Tennessee, in addition to those in
the six previously mentioned
states.)
Sign-up dates for the
Emergency Forestry
Conservation Reserve Program
will be announced as soon as new
regulations and software are
developed.
USDA has already made $63
million in Emergency
Conservation Program (ECP)
funds available to assist
agricultural producers struck by
hurricanes in the Gulf of Mexico
region during the calendar year
2005. Eligible agricultural
producers may receive up to 100
percent cost-share to remove
debris and restore fences and
conservation structures.
Additional funds for oyster,
nursery and poultry producers
and forest landowners will be
made available when new rules
authorizing assistance are
published in the Federal Register.
USDA's Farm Service Agency
(FSA) is developing these rules
and plans to publish proposed
rules for public comment in the
near future.
USDA's Farm Service Agency
(FSA) currently has $156 million
in low-interest emergency (EM)
loan funds available to help
farmers and ranchers rebuild their
operations.
In certain cases, FSA can
provide producers with both EM
and operating loans to assist them
with spring operations. Eligible
producers who expect to receive
future hurricane disaster
payments from USDA may
receive loans now and assign the
disaster funds to EM loan
payments. Emergency loan funds
may be used to: restore or replace
essential property; pay all or part
of production costs associated
with the disaster year; pay
essential family living expenses;
reorganize the farming operation
and refinance certain debts. To
apply for an EM loan, producers
are encouraged to contact their
local USDA Service Center. An
FSA fact sheet explaining the
loan application process step-by-
step and is available at:
www.fsa.usda.gov.
