Agenda itself

bogs Midway

commission

By BYRON SPIRES
Times Staff Writer

For the second meeting in a row
the Midway city council bogged
down.in deciding how the agenda
should proceed.
At the beginning of each
meeting mayor Delores Madison
asks if there are any agenda
modifications to be made. The
agenda lists items such as
approval of minutes, financial
report, consent agenda, old
business, and then new -business.
The balance of the agenda is for
reports and council and residents
concerns.
Council member Ella Barber
did not like her issues of the city
manager's duties, the mayor's
and city council's roles, a charter
workshop and the form of the
agenda being placed under new
business.
She said that she has brought
these issues up at previous
meetings and they-according to
her-should be under old business,
placing them in the earlier part of
the meeting.
The council after a considerable
amount of debate eventually
approved Barber's request to
move her issues to old business.
Because of the broad terms of
the issues and a request for a
charter workshop by Barber the
council voted to move Barber's
issues concerning the city
manager, council and mayor's
roles to a charter workshop on
June 29. The workshop is open to
the public and will be held at the
city's fire station conference
room at 7 P.M.
"This charter is messed up,"
Barber told the council as part of
her request to review the city's
charter. She said the workshop
would allow discussion of ways
to correct errors in the city's
Charter.

Indigent care surtax proposed


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
Is health care- in Gadsden County so
underfinanced that citizens will fork over
another half-cent in sales tax?
That's the proposal that Maximo
Martinez, executive director of the


Gadsden Community Health Council, put
before the Board of County
Commissioners Tuedsay night during the
regular meeting. The tax, tentatively called
the half-cent Indigent Care Surtax, would
raise about $1.3 million annually.
The commission gave its approval to
begin preliminary work to place to


referendum on the November ballot for
voters to make the final decision.
"The surtax would pay for an improved
healthcare service delivery system, equally
distribute support for healthcare for
anyone who purchases taxable items, and
generate revenue support for uninsured or
under-insured healthcare. It enables the


revenues to be used for programs and
services beneficial for all citizens," he
said, during a 20-minute presentation.
Before asking for approval to move
forward with the surtax, Martinez laid the
groundwork for his proposal.

Bogan' s contract


Only the judge is

guaranteed a seat in

Gadsden courtroom

by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
Last week when Circuit Judge P. Kevin Davey
walked in the courtroom, with the exception of the
clerks, he was probably the only person assured of a
place to sit.
To say the courtroom at the Guy Race Courthouse
Annex was crowded is an understatement. Lawyers
lined the wall on one side of the courtroom while
their clients waited for their names to be called.
If the person wasn't in the courtroom when called,
maybe he was in the packed waiting room outside
or maybe she was outside the building waiting near
the door because there was no place to sit inside.
In all, there were 104 people on the docket last
Wednesday. Enough to last all day. Some of the
cases were disposed of quickly as the accused pled
guilty after a battery of questions ranging from
whether anyone had promised them anything to
plead guilty, to did they understand what the judge
was saying.
Many more cases were continued for another two
to four weeks, case management dates were set and


trials were put on another docket.
"They have days like that," said Clerk of the
Courts Nicholas Thomas, referring to the
overcrowded courtroom. There have been two new
judges assigned to the circuit, but Thomas said, the
chief judge won't assign a fulltime judge here
because "we don't have a courtroom."
Gadsden County is part of a six county circuit but
has more volume per capital than any of the other
smaller counties in the circuit.
Thomas said that he brought the matter to the
attention to the board of county commissioners
several years ago and, so far, they have not acted on
his recommendation.
"The county received $400,000 this year but the
decision on how to spend it is left up to the board.
Will they spend it on security? Arid if they decide
on a building for a new courtroom, where will it
go?" he asked.
Thomas said it has been a source of frustration for
him that a courtroom has yet to be a priority after
three years. "The courtroom should have been built
several years ago. Some people have been sitting in
jail for two years," he said.
The plan four years ago was to build or create dual
courtrooms so that two felony courts could be held
at the same time. That way people awaiting trial
could be processed in a timely manner.
He also thought they had found an answer when
senior judges were handling some of the load in
smaller counties. That never worked out either

$110,000

salary plus

incentives

By BYRON SPIRES
Times Staff Writer
It is official; Quincy's new city
manager Bill Bogan has a
contract.
The guts of his $110,000 a year
salary plus benefits were ironed
out at a special called city
meeting Monday night.
The contract is for three years
and includes a severance pay
package. The commissioners will
have the right to terminate the
contract at any point during the
contract terms. The city is
required to pay Bogan a
severance equal to six months'
salary, unless termination is for
legal issues.
Former city manager Willie
Earl Banks received a nine-
month severance pay when he
tendered his resignation.
Banks' resignation fell on the
heels of a vote by the
commission to start the procedure
to remove him from the city
manager's position.
There is an incentives portion
of the contract that will pay
Bogan an additional $5,000.
Bogan, a certified public
accountant, was hired as the city
manager over the day-to-day
operations of the city. In order to
earn the additional dollars Bogan
will need to accomplish two
financial goals set by the
commission.
First he must have the city's
bank reconciliations up to date
for the city's operating account
by the end of September.
'Secondly he must reconcile the
city's ledger accounts (inter-
department accounts), and due to
and due from account.
These issues have been a thorn
in the side of the city's finance
department for the past two


years.
The bank reconciliation must
done in order to determine the
city's financial status.
The balancing of the due to and
due from account is an
accounting practice to make sure
that each moved item is
accounted for on the city's
ledgers. Usually these accounts
are reconciled by budget
amendments or money being
moved back to the budgeted line
item during the fiscal year.
Those issues have not been
done on a regular basis so are
behind. Both of these issues are
instrumental in determining the
financial health of the city.
In addition to a salary and the
potential for a bonus Began will
receive benefits that include the
full use of a city vehicle, health
insurance and retirement.
Bogan's contract did not go
unchallenged.
Commissioner Derrick Elias
took issue with much of the
contract. Elias said that by not
ironing out issues in the last three
city managers' contracts the
commission found itself in some
tight places when it came to
terminating the city manager.
Elias asked city attorney Jack
McLean about the termination
severance pay and whether
Bogan would be paid a severance
pay if he were not reappointed at
the end of his contract. McLean
said that the severance pay would
be paid.
McLean added that the city
could fire Bogan, but they would
owe him the six-month's
severance pay.
Another issue at the top of
Elias' list was Bogan's pay. Elias
said he thought the pay was too
much. He used the example of
the current county manager who
is being paid less than Bogan for
the operations of the whole
county. The county manager is
paid $85,000 plus a vehicle,
health insurance and retirement.
Elias said he did not feel that
the city manager should be paid

Loyalty drives former hospital ER's Dunmyer


State's first female ER
paramedic questions
return of GCH
employees

by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
In 1982 when Gail Dunmyer came to work
at Gadsden Memorial Hospital she was the
first female in the state hired as a registered
paramedic, assigned strictly to an emergency
room.
Grateful for the opportunity, Dunymer


remained at the county hospital until Nov. 4,
2005, when the Agency on Health Care
Administration closed the doors.
"I feel so loyal to Gadsden County. I was in
the third class to graduate as a paramedic for
emergency rooms. This county had the
creativity and foresight to hire paramedics for
the emergency room," she said.
With an acute shortage of nurses and
already-trained Vietnam veteran paramedics,
there were people to fill the medical void.
But as much as she loves the county and the
people, Dunmeyer had to find other
employment. Before the Nov. 4 shutdown,
other nurses has already found jobs.
"The night that the hospital was closed, no
one was there to relieve me," she said. The


other ER nurse has been on duty six hours.
Dunmeyer said employees are not singling
out any one entity to blame.
"There is enough blame to go around: the
hospital administrators (Ashford), the county
commissioners, we can all look back and say
what we should have done. It is so sad that
this had to happen," she said.
With families to raise and bills to pay, most
Gadsden Community Hospital employees
have found work elsewhere.
Some of them may want to come back to
work when the hospital re-opens, but the
question remains, according to Dunmeyer
who keeps in touch with many employees,
whether they can trust the new managers.

2 die in crashes within week at same spot


By Alice Dupont
and Brian Dekle

Two fatal accidents within a
week in Gadsden County
occurred only a few feet from
each other on Point Milligan
Road between Quincy and
Havana.
The wrecks were the 15th and
16th fatal vehicle accidents in
Gadsden County this year.
The first involved Michael C.
Wood, 44, of Quincy,
Wednesday, May 31.
Wood was travelling south in
a 2006 Ford van around 9:30
p.m. when he failed to negotiate
,a curve and traveled off the
road onto the west shoulder. He
-lost control of the vehicle in an
-attempt to return the van to the
roadway. The van began to
rotate across both lanes, then
overturned and struck a tree
with its front left side,
according to a Florida Highway
Patrol news release.
Paramedics transported Wood
to Tallahassee Memorial
Hospital, where he was later
pronounced dead.
Another tragic accident that
occurred Tuesday, June 6,
involving Tanya Hunter, 35, of
Havana, reveals an eerily
similar scenario and happened
.only a- few feet from the earlier
.crash.
Around 5:30 a.m. Hunter was
traveling south on Point
Milligan Road and failed to
negotiate a sharp curve. As her
vehicle, a 1993 Cadillac four-
*door sedan, traveled off the
road on the west shoulder,
Hunter.tried to get back on the
road but lost control.
The car began to rotate as it
'traveled across both lanes and
-down a steep shoulder before it
struck a tree in the wooded area
next to the road.
The vehicle, badly mangled,
came to a rest facing southwest
.,on the east shoulder, according
to a Florida Highway Patrol
news release.


A wrecker pulls Tanya Hunter's badly-damaged Cadillac from a wooded area onto the back of the truck. Hunter died in the accident, which occurred Tuesday morning on
Point Milligan Road.


Hunter was pronounced dead
at the scene of the crash, about
three-tenths of a mile south of
Chaf Chason Road.
Gadsden County Sheriff
deputies, Florida Highway
patrolmen, Quincy fire fighters
and paramedics responded to
the scene. Family and friends of
Hunter gathered there, as well,
some sobbing and being
comforted by others.
A Florida Highway Patrol
news release said Hunter was
not using her seatbelt at the
time of the accident. The report
did not specify whether alcohol
was involved in the crash,
pending investigation.
Hunter was not traveling with
passengers, and no one else was
involved in the accident.


After losing control of her vehicle Tuesday morning, Tanya Hunter of Havana went down a steep
shoulder off Point Milligan Road and struck a tree, killing her and leaving the car badly mangled.


Corrections

In last week's Gadsden
County Times the county'.s
rival football coaches names
appeared under the wrong
photographs.
Also in the June 1, 2006
edition of the Gadsden County
Times, the story entitled
"Illegal dumping not just one
man's problem" contained a
reference to and comments
from an incorrectly-named
local man, "Lamar Norton."
Lamar's name is actually
Lamar Norman. The Times
apologizes for the errors.

elected mayor pro tem Anthony Baker, newly elected mayor Nadine Smith and commissioner Helen
Franks.


Smith is Gretna's new mayor


My name is Barry V. Young: I
am announcing my candidacy
for school board in district
three.
I am a native of Gadsden
County, and I was reared in the
town of Greensboro by my
parents Wilford and Ella Young
Kennedy. I received further
nurturing from grandparents
Murphy and the late Mary
Young.
I was educated in the public
schools of Gadsden County
where I attended Greensboro
Elementary School and
Greensboro High School,
graduating in the. top 10 of my
class in 1985. Upon completing
high school, I furthered my
education at Tallahassee
Community College and the
University of Florida.
After returning to Gadsden
County, I married Yolanda
Willis Young and we have one
daughter, Bria A. Young. My


wife and I are both long-time
government employees.
My life can be characterized
as one of service to God and my
fellow man. I am a lifelong
member of Pine Bloom
Missionary Baptist Church,
where I serve as a deacon. This
desire to serve has caused me to
become involved in the
community in several ways
including the Greensboro Town
Council, Gadsden County
planning and zoning
commission, Greensboro High
and West Gadsden High
volunteer assistant football
coach, and Greensboro High
School's advisory council.
This same desire to serve has
led me to offer myself as a
candidate for school board,
district three. I look forward to
meeting with the constituents of
district three, hearing your
concerns and exchanging ideas.

Nadine Smith is now the
mayor of Gretna.
Smith was elected unan-
imously by her fellow
commissioners Tuesday night to
head the city commission.
"I consider myself a team
leader," Smith said after her
peers chose her as the city's
mayor.
Smith said that she hoped that
the commission wokld act as a
team and move the city forward.
"Let's join together and let's
unite and move this city
together," Smith said.
Anthony Baker was elected
unanimously as mayor pro-tern
by the commission.
In addition to Smith's and
Baker's election the council
received twvo new members.
Willie Fagg and John Smith
were sworn in as Gretna's newly
elected commissioners.
Growth and the future of
Gretna were the main topics of
discussion under Smith's first
night as mayor.
Carl Morrell, of Optimum
Enterprises, Inc. has been
working on a vision program for
the city of Gretna.
Morrell spoke to the com-


mission about deciding on the
city's urban service areas and
possible areas of annexation.
The city must develop a plan of
attack he said concerning the
future growth of Gretna. "Now
is the time to make these
decisions," Morrell told the
commissioners.
According to Morrell there are
many changes planned over the
next few years that will affect
how and when land can be
annexed into a city.
He said that the legislature is
working on a number of bills
that will make it harder to annex
property and to make land use
changes to property.
Morrell outlined a strategy that
includes deciding what land
surrounding Gretna may be
considered at a future date for
annexation.
There were several pieces of
adjacent property that were
named, including 310 acres
behind the Gadsden Correctional
facility on Highway 12 (Greens-
boro Highway) and 68 acres
behind the old ballpark in Gretna
proper.
Morrell also wanted to know if
the commission wanted to access
the land adjacent to Interstate
10giving them two options:
along Highway 90 to Highway


L. ~..



SI .1


12 and then to the Interstate, or
along Dewey Johnson Parkway
to the interstate. The com-
mission decided to include the
U.S. 90 route.
City attorney Harold Knowles
said that there was a 1,100 acre
tract that adjoined Gretna that
should be considered as part of
the vision process. Knowles did
not give details of exactly where
the land was located.
The commissioners gave
Knowles and Morrell the
authority to draw up the service
and possible annexation
boundaries. Morrell said he
would bring the map with the
locations to the next city
meeting.
These issues must be presented
to the Department of Com-
munity Affairs for its evaluation
before they become permanent
boundaries.
In other business:
* The council approved a
MediaCom contract for rent on
the dish and equipment building
located on city property.
MediaCom will start paying
$400 a month rent effective July
1. The rent will be raised to
$500 a month for the July 1,
2007 year on a two year
contract.

Students must now decide


on high school majors


Brian Dekle
Times Intern

"What will I major in?" is not
just a question for college
students anymore. New Florida
legislation will require that high
school students choose an
elective concentration or "high
school major."
The legislation, called the
Secondary School Redesign
Act, requires that students
entering the ninth grade in
2007-2008 school term
complete four credits in "a
major area of interest" before
graduation. The act, part of
house bill 7087, also outlines
requirements for a second high
school major (also four credits)
and a high school minor (three
credits):
Students will take major and
minor electives in addition to
"core" courses required for
graduation, such as math,
science, language arts, foreign
languages and social studies.
Majors can include traditional
academic studies such as
English or math, or they can be
vocational.
The initiative is aimed at
getting students to think about
careers at an earlier age,
according to Gadsden County
School Deputy Superintendent
Dr. James Brown.
"I like the point that it requires
students to plan for careers
early. So many students don't
know what they want to do
when they graduate (high
school)," Brown said.
Individual school districts will
choose what majors they will
offer by Oct. 1 annually and will


submit a list to the Florida
Commissioner of Education for
approval.
The legislation also introduces
statewide academic
requirements for middle school
students beginning in the 2006-
2007 school- term. The
provisions include a career
course and an academic and
career plan for each student,
aimed at getting middle school
students ready for high school
majors.
Previously, individual school
districts determined
requirements for middle school
graduation, not the state.
Gadsden County is already up to
par on the new middle school
initiatives, according to Brown.
"The local school board
already meets state standards (in
middle school graduation
requirements). The only
difference is the state will now
require four maths in middle
school, and locally we have
only required three," Brown
said.
The act also lends a hand to
students struggling to pass
standardized tests such as the
FCAT by allowing them other
outlets to show their skills.
Although the legislation asserts
that students must pass the
FCAT to recieve a standard
diploma, it also provides for
alternative methods for certain
students to demonstrate
proficiency in subjects.
If a school's individual
education plan committee
determines the FCAT cannot
accurately measure a certain
student's abilities, they may still
award the student a diploma if


he or she shows competency
through an FCAT alternative.
Although the legislation says
this applies to students with a
disability, Brown said, until
they are told otherwise, the local
school board interprets this
section as applying to all
students, but especially those
with a disability.
He added that portfolios or
other tests may be used as
alternatives for students to
prove mastery of a subject.
"I am always in favor of
higher expectations. It's always
been the governor's concern to
even the playing field with the
rest of the nation. I think that
requiring more rigor is a good
thing, but it is important to
understand all students can't
handle rigor. So we must come
up with alternative ways for
students to demonstrate
competency," Brown said.
Despite allowing alternatives
to the FCAT on a limited basis,
the legislation still promotes
passing the FCAT. For every
year a student scores a level one
or two (below grade level) in
reading or math on the FCAT,
he or she must be enrolled in an
intensive remediation course the
next year, the legislation says.
Students who fail courses in
school will also get some help
in passing through initiatives in
the legislation. Each school
district must design a system to
allow students who fail a course
to recover that credit by taking
another similar course or other
options.
Lawmakers passed House Bill
7087 May 26, and Governor Jeb
Bush signed it into law June 5.

is growing, at least in my '
neighborhood. Last year
at this time, I drove
around and counted
nearly a dozen vehicles i
that were not
operational...just sitting
there like big hunks of ugly steel waiting
for a child to crawl into or for a snake to
crawl out.
Here we are in another summer season
and it's the same thing. Those old cars
are a breeding place for mosquitos,
snakes, rats and other critters.
Unfortunately, these critters do not


remain in the old cars; they slither out
and right into someone else's yard or
home.
Mosquito season is here. Every day we
hear about the diseases they spread.
Children are out of school and playing.
Do we have to wait until our citizens
start coming up with all kinds of
mosquito-borne diseases.


Lunker down

with

l K.es

When we hunker down to talk, we're all on the same level.
by Kesley Colbert, just a good ole boy that likes to write. ,A


How do you hunker?


I bet you a hundred folks have asked me
why I put "Hunkering Down With Kes" as
the head of this little weakly blurb. You
guys never cease to amaze me! I thought
me, Mom and Leonard Kindig were the
only three people actually looking at this
thing.
I've been asked by,one newspaper that
carries my column to give it a new name.
They made an executive call that
"Hunkering" is no longer fashionable.
I think that newspaper is now owned by
the same folks up in New York City that
makes that tortilla sauce for Texas
cowboys..... And let me quickly say what
we have all realized for years-the paper is
right! Hunkering went out with aluminum
legged kitchen tables and moon hubcaps. I
:applaud them for their forward looking
position and its attention to every detail.
' I'm not mad at the paper. And I certainly
don't blame anyone there. No one
understands progress better than me.
You've got to modernize and "sleek it
down" to keep up! They are working as
hard as they can with your best interest in
mind.
I'm the old fogy that is out of step. I
reckon the world has past me by. Why, I'm
still upset that a lot of churches I know of
have taken that little table down front that
reads, "This Do In Remembrance Of Me"
and stored it above the choir loft.
John F. Kennedy is dead. Hula hoops are
relics. They changed the Coke formula. No
one sits today on the front porch and enjoys
the wonderment of an early spring evening
with their neighbors.
And nobody has time to Hunker
anymore! We've got ballgames to get to
and issues to attend to and the final episode
of The Survivor towatch. Besides, the real,
genuine Hunkers of our time are dying out.
And the ones that are still with us have a
hard time dropping down on their heels.
But you all know me. I'm a hard old boy
to change! So if you don't mind I'm going
to keep right on Hunkering....you're just
are going to have to look a little lower to
find me!
And for the youngsters that might be
tuning in this morning let's review a couple
of things. "Hunkering down" is where the


men of my generation used to gather up in
front of the general store or at a church
picnic or in front of city hall waiting for
election results or out in the front yard
when they were taking a break from work
and they'd simply bend their knees and
ease their body down till their posterior
rested near 'bout on their heels. They'd
wrap their arms around their knees-the
good ones would rock gently back and
forth-and carry on a lively discussion about
hog prices, the rising cost of gasoline, what
the government was doing wrong and how
Clem Haskins's corn was lagging behind
the rest of the valley.
It was a slow pace for a "not in a hurry"
generation.
There were (and are) some tremendous
advantages to Hunkering. You can just
naturally think better low to the ground.
Why, some of the best ideas we ever had
came when we "were just Hunkering"! We
were Hunkering the afternoon Ricky Gene
came up with the plot to kidnap Cynthia
Wheat. And wewere Hunkering when we
thought about the vine ripe tomatoes and if
we could reach the Park Theatre if we
threw them from atop the water tower.....
well, those are other stories.....
You make a smaller target when you
Hunker. That might not mean a thing to
you but in rural West Tennessee in a day
and age where nobody got a lawyer and
nobody ran-to the sheriff-we worked out
our differences without any outside
interference-that was crucial. See Hatfields
and McCoys.
You were anchored down on windy days.
For the tobacco chewers (which was
everybody) the spill out didn't spatter so
far Everybody was down on the same level.
It didn't matter if it was Bill Argo from the
Gulf Station, John Charles Sasser, who
farmed for a living or Doc Bell from over
at the bank. When you'll got Hunkered
down eyeball to eyeball, there was no
pecking order, pedigree or financial
consideration as to whose voice had the
greater sway. If you said something
halfway intelligent, they'd all nod.
Hunkering just naturally brought on a

I'll bet St. P


dancing 1

I received one of those calls you hate to
get late Saturday afternoon.
My friend Jimmy Moore from Carrollton,
Ga. had passed away, his daughter, Jamie,
called to tell me.
I've thought a lot about Jimmy and his
family over the past couple of days.
Jimmy, his wife, Linda, and daughter,
Jamie, became my friends the first time I
met them; it was like I had known Jimmy
and Linda all of my life.
I met them at the "Hotlanta Dance
Competition," in Atlanta not long after I
moved to Carrollton.
Jimmy and Linda had a western wear
booth at the competition. Just by chance I
stopped by and struck up a conversation
with them.
It turned out they lived and worked in
Carrollton. Jimmy ran a little western wear
store and worked events and shows around
the Atlanta area and Linda owned a beauty
shop.
Jimmy had another business that was
really his main source of income. He
taught and called square dancing.
That was his claim to fame. In that arena,
Jimmy was known all over the south.
Before I left them that day they actually
hired me to start a country and western
dance class at their square dance barn just
out of town.
I was to start the next week on Thursday
night. It seems they were having a lot of
requests from their square dancers to learn
some of the country dances.
Before I go too far, let explain why they
hired me. I had taken lessons in
Tallahassee before I moved to Carrollton
and had danced a little during the breaks at
the competition. I guess they thought I
knew what I was doing.
I'm not the best dancer in the world by

eter is square


right now!

any stretch of the imagination, but I did
know the basics.
I told them I would do it.
On Thursday night I showed up at the
dance barn about 20 minutes early and
barely found a parking place.
I was under the impression there would
be about 10-12 people there, but, instead,
there were about 70.
My palms were sweating, which only
happens when I'm really nervous. Jimmy
came over to where I was standing and
before I bolted out the back door he talked
me into staying and at least giving it a try.
Since this would be my first ever class as
a teacher, I figured I could probably fake
my way through most of the class. I mean,
these people were square dancers. What
could they know about dancing?
Boy, was I wrong. These people knew
how to dance, and they wanted to learn the
new craze of country and western dancing
sweeping the U.S. at the time.
Just before I panicked, thankfully I
remembered how my teacher, Sue Boyd,
had started her classes.
I just repeated what I heard her say
dozens of times, and, the next thing I
knew, a two-hour class was over.
Jimmy was happy, I had some spending
money, and all I had to do was teach class
two the next week.
We have remained friends since that
fateful meeting in Atlanta in 1991.
I watched their daughter Jamie grow up
at those dance classes and now she is a
young lady they can be proud of.
Jimmy, Linda and Jamie were good to,
my daughter Cindy and I while we lived in
Carrollton.
They are the kind of people you are

It's a joy to teach
Dear Citizens of Gadsden County,
As this school year comes to a close, I thank you for
giving me the opportunity to serve as your 2005-2006
Gadsden District Teacher of the Year. In my travels, I
have communicated across the state of Florida that
Gadsden County is truly the best kept secret in the state
of Florida. Yes, we have issues as any other progressive
community does; however, as a spirit of unity for the
good of the community prevails, ultimately any reach
can be bridged.
Throughout the borders of this district, the sentiments I
speak are shared. Overall, parents, the children you send
to our classrooms are respectful, willing to learn and a
sincere joy to teach. As they enter college, the
workforce, or the military, your sons and daughters are
continuously making gains, not just on the assessments
such as the FCAT, but they are also taking their learned
lessons and broadening their horizons. In time, we will
see positive effects of their critical thinking skills on the
future Gadsden County. Business partners and
stakeholders, you who have a genuine interest in the
children of Gadsden County, your generous
contributions are appreciated, as they add so much to the
culture and intellect of students in this district. For
efforts such as the Teacher Support Day, which occurred
just this past week, as well as the endeavor made by
many feniale leaders who took a stand with me against
heart disease in February, I personally say thank you.
Those are examples of what makes Gadsden County a
unique community.
Again, I thank you, the Gadsden County community,
for supporting me in my year of service. Thank you for
a memorable year. Have a great summer!
Mrs. Yasmeen M. Leon
Gadsden District Teacher of the Year 2005-2006

Filling vacant teachers' chairs
Dear Editor:
Friends of the community and school system are
casualties of the governor's "No Child Left Behind"
mandate. Consequently, the school system is losing
personnel with 25, 30 years of hard work, dedication
and loyalty. I am aware that the superintendent has to
follow the state mandate. I am also aware of the
positions created by the administration for unqualified
friends and supporters.
My question is why not create positions for dedicated
para-professionals? Elected officials be warned, your
deeds will not be forgotten. Voters, the ballot box is our
defense stand strong.

The best ideas are those
shared by neighbors on their
own front porches.

by Ron Isbell, Publisher
This week I want to introduce
you to a guy who looks like
Robert Redford (if you squint
really, really hard or have
sampled a
little too
much of
that
Tennessee
Lemonade j
he learned .
about in his -
youth)...a
guy who
has
millionaires pleading for his
mercy...a guy who (God bless
him) loves his St. Louis
Cardinals, but loves his wife
Cathy, their two boys, his
mother, his church and even his
brother, Leon, more.
He's Kesley Colbert. He's best-
known to me as the guy who
writes "Hunkering Down with
Kes", and you're going to get the
chance to know him the same
way over the next few weeks.
His "day job" is property
appraiser for Gulf County,
Florida. That's where he brings
tears to the eyes of millionaires.
He loves baseball almost as
much as Joe Ferolito does. As
lucky it love as he was to have
married the love of his life,
Cathy, he was probably just as
lucky to have had two sons so
that he could enjoy his "field of
dreams" another 20 years after
his last turn at bat.
Once each week he sits down at
his computer and puts some
pretty good thoughts down on
paper. Thoughts that soften
today's problems with some
good, old-fashioned philosophy
that always seems to make such
good sense you will be simply
amazed at why our leaders didn't
see the same thing.
That philosophy is rooted in a
west-cdntral rural Tennessee
boyhood that included drive-ins,
summer jobs, AM radio stations,
dime stores and party line
telephones (more on that next
week).
You'll get to know a cast of
characters that will make you
smile, and think, and remember
from your own childhood.
There's his brother, Leon. A
little bit saint, a little bit sinner,
but always underfoot when you
don't want him around and
absent when you do. If you were
ever 12 years old and had a
brother, you know Leon.
His affection for Mary Hadley
Hayden seems to weave its way
into almost every column Kes
writes. While there's something
about this lost love Kes just can't
seem to let go of, his pining
always serves a good purpose.
I don't know to this day if Mary
Hadley Hayden is a real 15-year-
old girl from Tennessee or if
she's Cathy Colbert in disguise.
I've come to know Mary Hadley
so well, I guess by now I don't
really want to know.
In this first column for our
newspaper Kes tells us why he
chose the title "Hunkering Down
with Kes".
By "hunkering down", he says,
we all get on the same level and
talk to each other eye-to-eye.
Besides, he says, it keeps the
tobacco spittle from splattering
all over your shoes.
How can you argue with logic
like that?
And you got to love a columnist
that signs off every week with...
Respectfully,
Kes


Let us know what you think of
Kes' column. He says that as
long as people like to read it,
he'll keep sending it in.
After all, he says, ya just can't
hunker down by yourself.

County prepares


for busy hurricane


season ahead


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
Homeowners have been told
how to prepare, but what does a
county do to prepare for a
hurricane? How do they navigate
the red .tape to get federal funds
that pay for things like washed-
out roads and bridges, fallen
trees, and destruction of
muniicipal property?
Friday afternoon, a team from
the Federal Emergency
Management Agency came to
talk with local government and
law enforcement officials about
recovering from a storm. The trio,
from the Pensacola FEMA office,
talked about three areas of
recovery and the role FEMA
plays.
Local officials said the
information was helpful and hope
to apply what they learned in the
event of a major storm here.
"We needed to know the
information they shared with us
during the workshop. A lot of
people just think about the
individuals, but during a disaster,
there's much more than that. The
county and the cities ,have to be
prepared and this was a step in
that direction," Maj. Shawn
Wood of the Gadsden County
Sheriff's Office and the county's
emergency management
coordinator, said.
The FEMA team began by
talking about the organization's
role in recovery.
"FEMA is here to assist. We are
not going to make you whole,"
Linda Taylor said. Many people,
she said, think FEMA is going to
come in and make everything
right, make everything the way it
is before the storm. "We can't do
that," she said.
As proof, Taylor said there are
still people living in FEMA
trailers in Pensacola from
Hurricane Ivan two years ago.
"There are still over 28,000
people using Florida addresses
from Hurricane Katrina," she
said. As of last Thursday, June 1,
people living in those trailers
must pay rent, and those who
were. receiving FEMA financial
assistance for the past year are no
longer getting it.
Still, there are things that
counties and municipalities can
do to make it easier for FEMA to
process repayment claims.. First,
she suggested counties and cities
form a team that can go out
immediately after a disaster to
assess damage and complete a
preliminary damage assessment.
"You know where damage is in
your area and you know what it is
worth," Taylor said. "The.
purpose of the preliminary
damage assessment is to identify
the scope and degree of damage,
identify staff and funding needs,
and identify special needs."
There are three ways to assess
damage: drive by, on foot, and by


air. Taylor said no matter how the
assessment is made, local people
need to do it. "You want to have
as much paper work completed as
you can when FEMA arrives. The
more you have ready the quicker
we can respond," Taylor said.
Communities that aren't
prepared suffer the consequences.
"There is nothing worse than
being turned down because you
didn't perform a preliminary
damage assessment, she said. If
a community is turned down,
Taylor said, they are on their own
for repairs and other financial
assistance.
Julie Prevost, public assistance
group supervisor, explained
FEMA's public assistance
program. The program, she said,
provides supplemental Federal
disaster assistance for the repair,
replacement, or restoration of
disaster-damaged, publicly-
owned facilities and the facilities
of certain private non-profit
organizations.
The local group, made up of
officials from most Gadsden
County municipalities, was told
the federal share of assistance is
not less than 75 percent of the
eligible cost for emergency
measures and permanent
restoration. The state determines
how the non-federal share (up to
25 percent) is split with the
applicants.
For, communities to be eligible
for public assistance, the work
required must be the result of the
disaster, located within the
designated disaster areas, and the
legal responsibility of the city or
county. Examples of the work
that is eligible are removal of
debris from public roads and
right-of-ways, as well as from
private property when it is
determined to be in the public
interest.
"If a tree falls across a road, you
may go on private property to
remove it, and that will be
reimbursed. But if it falls in the
yard of the homeowner, the city
will not be reimbursed. The rules
are very strict about certain
things," Prevost said.
The state of Florida, learning
from the past two hurricane
seasons, has decided to hire
public assistance coordinators,
who will meet. with
representatives from counties to
discuss eligibility requirements
and project formulation.
Florida has also discovered that
there is a need for what they have
dubbed "long-term recovery or
mitigation offices." Roy McClure
said officials realized that action
needed to be taken that would
reduce or eliminate long-term risk
to people and property from
natural causes and their affects.
"These grants are provided to
states and local governments to
implement long-term hazard
mitigation measures after a major
declaration. The purpose of the


program is to reduce or eliminate
long-term risk to people and
property from natural hazards and
their effects," McClure said.
"This was very informative.
There is still a lot we need to
learn and, like they said, if we're
going to make this work,
everyone has to be in touch with
everyone," Wood said.

Health

Continued from Page 1

The health council, he said, was
established in May 13, 2003, to
create a healthcare system that
meets the needs of all Gadsden
County citizens and reduce the
migration of residents to
neighboring counties to get
healthcare services.
The major objectives of the
health council, according to
Martinez, are to coordinate health
care resources, develop a high
quality health care delivery
system, work with the
community to tailor services to
specific needs and to remove
barriers caused by isolation,
language, literacy cultural, and
racial disparities.
"We had our work to do here in
this county," he said.
While there have been
improvements in the health care
services delivered, he said
Gadsden County still lags
statewide and regionally. For
instance, 85.2 people per 100,000
died from strokes in 2004 in
Gadsden County while the state
average was 54.7.
Other health disparities
included:
Deaths Per 100,000: Gadsden


State
Leon/Waku
*Diabetes
27.2
30.7
*Stroke
54.7
61.4
*HIV/AIE

much better in the delivery of
health care services.
"There were 667 women from
Gadsden County who gave birth
last year. All of them had to seek
healthcare out of the county.
There is no OB/GYN in the
county. We used to be able to say
that we had 39 beds when the
hospital was open, now that has
gone to zero. Hopefully we will
get an urgent care facility soon
and shortly after that the hospital
will re-open," he said.
Along with the statistics,
Martinez had solutions to the
problem. The money generated
from the half-cent surtax would
pay for comprehensive and
integrated primary health care
and finance a healthcare system
for the' uninsured and the
underinsured residents of the
county.
"The system will be used for
the medically poor, but not
limited to primary care,
preventative care, hospital care,
physicians, clinics, community
health centers, mental health
centers, regional referral
hospitals and an improved
healthcare delivery system," he
said.
"The health council has done a
lot, but we can only handle one
crisis at a time. We have'
addressed stroke and diabetes,

own. Our goal is to get this thing

be in the Supervisor of Elections

In infant mortality, there were
14.3 deaths per 1,000 babies born
while the statewide avergae is
7.6. "You cannot argue with the
needs in Gadsden County. This is
not something I made up, the
data is there," Martinez said.
According to Martinez, the
economic disparities are equally
as bad. In Gadsden County the
total population below the
poverty level statewide is 12.5
per cent and 19.9 plus percent in
Gadsden.
Approximately 21.1 percent of
the county's residents are
uninsured or underinsured, while
the statewide average is 18.7
percent.
And the county doesn't fare

because there were no facilities.
"We're fortunate the jail
situation hasn't exploded and we
were ordered to spend millions of
dollars," he said.
Marlon Brown, county
manager, said the commissioners
are aware of the need for
additional courtroom space.
"We have asked the board of
county commissioners to move
forward with a faciltiies study.
Arthur Lawson is working on a
Request For Proposal (RFP) for
the facilities study," Brown said.
In the meantime, Thomas said
he is not going to bring the
matter to the board again.


G*STARS youth jobs gets high marks


Commission okays land
use changes, more funds

for Chattahoochee library

by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

The board of county commissioners were
given good news from Workforce Plus CEO
Kimberly Moore and Tallahassee Community
College director of economic and workforce
development Rick Frazier.
The pair reported that they have met and
exceeded their goals for the Gadsden County
Youth Program, called G*STARS. The
$125,000 program is intended to put youth to
work this summer.
"The elementary component will take place
in TCC's Quincy House. The middle and high
school component will take place at East
Gadsden High, West Gadsden High, Shanks
Middle and Carter-Parramore Academy. In
student recruitment, we have reached 120
percent of our goal," Moore said.
Students in the program will receive a pay
rate of $4.20 per hour. Students must
complete their own time sheets, which will be

She asked that each council
member bring his or her issues
concerning the charter to the
workshop.
In other business:
* Council member Charles
Willis had concerns over the way
in which the council was paid.
The council members receive
$200 a month as pay for their
duties as council members and
$200 a month as a reimbursement
for expenses. The council
member pay was voted on by a
city wide-referendum at last
year's election and started at the
beginning of the city's fiscal year
in October.
In the council's agenda
package, city finance director
Angela Poole gave each council
member a W-9 form for non-city
employees. The form requested
information such as social
security number and address of
council members. Once
completed the form is then sent
to the Internal Revenue Service.
The W-9 form sets up the
process that will generate a 1099
at the end of the year.
According to Poole, council


approved by the coordinator, and daily
attendance sheets will also be kept.
Moore said she is happy with the progress of
the program and that she has had no trouble
attracting and retaining students. "We have
not lost one student from the program," she
said.
In other matters, commissioners had their
hands full with several hours of public
hearings related to land use changes. The
following were approved for transmittal to the
Department of Community Affairs.
*Administrative Text Amendments to the
Comprehensive Plan
*River Oak Plantation Comprehensive Plan
Amendment
*Variance Request for Holiday Inn Express
signs
*Burnett II Minor subdivision
The also approved a resolution to move the
Apalachicola Northern Railroad Station in
Greensboro.
A request for a variance at Towhee
Subdivision was tabled until the next regular
board meeting after the property owner agreed
to redraw the subdivision to reflect seven lots.
The board also approved an increase in the
amount of money for the new Chattahoochee
Public Library from just over $800,000 to just
over one million dollars. The county manager


members are responsible for
paying their own taxes, social
security and keeping up with
their expenses for the
reimbursement part of the
member's monthly allocations.
Willis had concerns over how
the money should be handled and
the tax issues. This item as well
was put on the agenda for the
charter workshop.
* The council approved a small-
scale amendment to the comp
plan and a zone changing to
Interstate Commercial for Ring
Power Corporation on U.S. 90.
The company is completing
construction of its new facility
and has bought several pieces of
property along the front of the
property as part of their complex.
The changes bring the entire 28.9
acres of property under the IC
designation.

above what the county manager
who covers the entire county is
paid.
He asked Bogan about his
former pay. Bogan was a
financial consultant for the city
and a financial director for Leon


County prior to becoming city
manager.
Bogan's pay at Leon County
was $95,000; he also operates a
financial consultation firm to
supplement his income. One of
his clients is the City of Gretna.
This set off another round of
questions.
Elias asked if he could work
full time for the city and be able
to operate his financial consulting
firm.
Bogan responded that he had
contacted his clients and
explained that he would be taking
the Quincy city manager's
position and would not be able to
continue his services with them.
He added that he currently has
some contractual obligations he
must meet.
He said he did not feel that his
consulting business would
interfere with his city
responsibilities.
Elias did not agree with the
bonus amount and was able to
have it decreased from the
original figure of $10,000 to
$5,000.
When the vote was taken Elias
voted against the contract with
mayor Sherrie Taylor,
commissioners Keith Dowdell,
Andy Gay and Finley Cook
voting for the contract.


said the cost is based on the rise in building
materials.
Kay Lay, who says she has tried to preserve
and share the county's shade tobacco heritage,
asked for and got permission to participate inr
America's 400th Anniversary featuring
Jamestown, VA.
Lay said that the event is significant because
it was a Virginia farmer who brought the
tobacco seed to Gadsden County that, when'
mixed with the Cuban seed, formed the
unique shade tobacco seed found only in,
Gadsden County.
Lay plans to feature Jamestown during her
Barn Day event in 2007. Gadsden will be
among nearly 200 communities in Virginia, .
Georgia, Florida, and England to share in the
celebration.
Asst. County Attorney Paul Sexton informed.
the board that the bankruptcy court judge,
signed off on the order accepting the
agreement between Ashford Healthcare, Inc.,,,
the county and the creditors last Friday.
The officially signed order clears the way
for the hospital license to be returned to the.
county, and for the Agency for Health Carel,
Administration and the Medicaid and,
Medicare officials to begin work to re-open.,
the hospital.


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.

Deny. Grieve. Accept.


Hospice organizations help families deal with death


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
Suppose you had a loved one who is dying.
Barring a miracle, the doctors have given them six
months or less to live. You deny. You grieve. You
wring your hands when you finally accept the
inevitable.
Can anyone help you and your loved one get
through this tough time? Yes.
Gadsden County residents are fortunate to have
two organizations that are ready, willing, and
available to help. The Big Bend Hospice and
Covenant Hospice will help steer you and your
family through this trying time and more. Both are
willing to sit down and talk with families about the
services they offer.
"The mission of Big Bend Hospice is to provide
compassionate care to individuals with life-limiting
illness, comfort to their families and emotional
support to anyone who has lost a loved one," stated
the organization's brochure, which is widely
distributed.
Both organizations offer similar services. Big
Bend Hospice has a local office on North Jackson
Street in Quincy. Marina Brown, community
educator for Covenant Hospice, said that while there
is no local office they offer full service to Gadsden
County.
Just last Saturday Covenant held a.town meeting
on Alzheimer's Disease in the African American
Community at Antioch Missionary Baptist Church
in Quincy. She disagrees with the notion that two
hospice organizations are too many for a small
community.
"There is enough for all of us to do. We were able
to come into the county because part of the
population was not being reached," Brown said.
But reaching all segments of the population is just
what Williard Rudd and Sterling DuPont are trying
to do. "We are willing to bring our message to any
organization, church or group," Rudd said. There
are many people in the county who can use the
services offered by hospice but have not taken
advantage of them.
"Last year we served a few more than 80 people.
That's too low. There were people out there
suffering that we could have helped free of charge.


Arrests

with intent to sell, beverage sold
without a license, possession of a
controlled substance, maintaining
a dwelling that sells controlled
substance, possession of cannabis,


and possession
intent to sell.


We want to change that," DuPont said.
Both Big Bend and Covenant are free and offer a
variety of services including:
*Education
*Patient and Family Care
*Family Support
*Counseling Before and After
*Respite Care
*Adult Grief Support
*Children and Teen Grief Support
Brown said Covenant is also committed to helping
in other ways. People like James Tucker, who three
months ago didn't know what to think when a social
worker, doctor, nurse, chaplain, and a volunteer
from Covenant dropped in at his trailer in rural
Gadsden County.
According to Brown, the crew rolled up their
sleeves and went to work on another part of
Tucker's life, his home. While his medical and
emotional needs were being met, his home could
use a little sprucing up.
"The team purchased new snap-in flooring for
Tucker's trailer. During an 11-hour stint, the five
member group stripped the old carpet and laid a new
floor for Tucker," Brown said.
Jimmy Gage, who spends several hours a week as
Tucker's volunteer, returned the next day to plant
flowers in a planter so that Tucker can see the
flowers from his window.
Hospice volunteers are the backbone of the
organizations. People like Sandra Lee Johnson of
Big Bend Hospice. ,
"There was an immediate connection made when I
first met my patient. When he shook my hand, I felt
flow from him an inner strength that seemed to
outright defy his physical condition, I thank God for
planning these interaction and exchange of love that
flows from heart to heart," she said.
Hospice organizations are known for their care and
support. The services may be provided in the
patient's own home, a nursing home, hospital or
Hospice House. Some people may be familiar with
the Hospice House in Tallahassee, a 12-bed facility
for patients who need short-term, inpatient care.
For more information on Big Bend Hospice in
Quincy call 875-2925 or stop by the office at 105
North Jackson Street. You can reach Covenant
Hospice at 850-913-3211.

Quincy teen brings home second


place at national rowing regatta


HoIden Dickeson
and Matt Lunberg
only 3 seconds
from first place

by Brian Dekle
Times Intern

Slicing through the water like a
knife through soft butter, a
Quincy teenager recently rowed
his way into second place at a
national rowing regatta.
Holden Dickeson, a Maclay
School senior and Gadsden
County resident, and his rowing
partner, Matt Lunberg, traveled to
the Scholastic Rowing
Association's national
championship in Saratoga
Springs, N.Y. last week and came
home with the second place
trophy in men's junior double
rowing.
The Maclay rowing duo fell
only three seconds short of the
top spot, which went to Don
Bosco Prep School in New
Jersey.
"We were disappointed at first,
but later realized that second in
the nation is not that bad,"
Dickeson said. "It was a really
great race."
"To me it was just great to see a
full year's worth of effort (pay
off). In the beginning of the year
if you had asked them (if they
would come home with national
honors), they wouldn't have
thought it, so it was great,"
Yuvall Peress, Maclay rowing
coach, said.
The men's junior double rowing
category was only one of many at
the two-day competition, which
drew more than 3,000 rowers


from 150 high schools and more
than 8,000 fans.
As the name implies, the
doubles category features two
men rowing in a single boat.
They employ a "sculling"
technique, in which each rower
uses two oars as opposed to one
long one (called "sweeping"), as
in four man and eight man boats.
The double competition begins
with two 2000 meter "heats" or
races, and the top three out of
each end up in the finals. "In the
first heat we just wanted to place,
because we wanted to conserve
energy for the finals," Dickeson
said. "I 'was definitely nervous
because the boats are right next to
you and you are seeing all the
other rowers up close. I was
definitely nervous but just had to
focus on the race."
This is the first year Maclay has
sent teams to the national rowing
competition in several years, and
the road there was a long but
successful one. Maclay placed
high in state and region-level
competitions this year, qualifying
them for the national event.
Dickeson and Lunberg even
broke a state record for men's
doubles at the state level this
year.
Before the glitzy competitions,
however, were hours and hours of
behind-the-scenes work -
pushing bodies to their limits to
get in tip-top shape for the
physically demanding sport.
"It's one of the hardest sports
out there; you use your whole
body when you're rowing,"
Dickeson explained. The Maclay
team prepared with daily
practices that consisted of four to
six-mile runs, intense extended
workouts .on rowing machines,
rowing at Lake Hall (the team's


practice lake) and even
weightlifing a couple of times a
week.
The team ended long, arduous
weeks of practice with fun
Saturday games of ultimate
frisbee or other activities.
Despite the hours of extreme
training, Peress said he feels the
team's success, can be attributed
to more than that.
"I want to say that it is hard
work, but these guys work. for
each other. You can see it in
training; when one guy sees
another, they inspire each other to
work harder. They want to do
better for each other," Peress
explained. "Like I told them,
there's no sense in working for
results. You work for effort and
you'll get results."
Dickeson agrees that teamwork
and athletic chemistry are a big
part in his and his teammates'
accomplishments. He said
although it is hard to find
someone you can race with
effectively, he and Lunberg have
raced together so much over the
past year that it has become
"second nature".
He and his teammates working
together as "one force" is a chief
reason for Dickeson's love of the
sport, along with "the rush" he
gets from racing in boats, he said.
Dickeson began rowing in the
eighth grade and said his first
rowing coach, Ronnie Hamed,
got him interested in the sport. He
said he would like to continue to
row in college and beyond.
Dickeson is the son of Suellen
Dickeson of Quincy and Mark
Dickeson of Washington D.C.
Both travelled to Sarasota
Springs to watch -their son in the
nationals.

LeeRoy, the Shetland pony, sticks his head through the truck cab window for a "chat" with is owner,
Randy Lane. LeeRoy loves to ride in Lane's truck, but he also likes a dip in the Apalachicola River.


This is no one-trick pony!


LeeRoy loves his truck!
By BYRON SPIRES
Times Staff Writer

LeeRoy the Shetland pony enjoys a good ride as
much as the next fellow.
He just likes to do the riding.
LeeRoy is the little horse that brings smiles to the
faces of onlookers as he makes his trip to town in
the back of Randy Lane's'pickup truck.
Standing at about 45 inches tall, he can just see
over the cab of the truck as he takes in the sights at a
speed that other horses can only dream about
reaching.
It seems that LeeRoy took to the back of a truck
like a duck takes to water.
"If you drop the tailgate, he'll jump up in the back
of a truck," Lane said about his pony that likes to
ride.
LeeRoy, a stud by the way, just likes to ride.
According to Lane he does not like to be left at
home, especially if you leave in a truck.
"He'll neigh and paw at the ground and gets pretty
upset if you don't take him with you," Lane said.

Lane said he especially likes to stick his head over
the cab of the truck and catch the wind in his mouth.
It blows his lips out to the side, something he
apparently enjoys.
LeeRoy will let people ride him and especially
likes children. "He lets kids crawl all over him,"
Lane said.
In addition to riding in trucks, LeeRoy has another
favorite past time. He likes to swim.
"We take him down to the Apalachicola River and
let him swim," Lane who lives in the Juniper
community not far from the river said. He loves it
when the kids climb on him in the water as well.
Lane said he would swim around with a kid on his
back all day if you will let him.
He is the family pet as you can imagine. He lives a
life of leisure getting groomed regularly and plenty
of good wholesome grains to eat.
Although he rides in the back of the truck and
plays with the neighborhood kids like any good
family pet should, he does have one thing holding
him back from being the perfect pet.
LeeRoy does not fetch.
But, Lane said, they were working on that issue
and he hoped that LeeRoy would take to fetching as
quickly as he did the truck riding.

New county library dedicated to William "Bill" McGill

McGill worked hard as a county commissioner to see that the new library was approved before he passed away in 2004


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

The library for which
William "Bill" McGill fought
so hard as a member of the
Board of County
Commissioners was officially
dedicated Tuesday at noon.
More than 200 people
endured the near 100 degree
heat as speakers talked about
the man for whom the library
was named.
"He was a hard worker. He
answered every call without
reservation. He used his
wisdom and integrity to get
the job done," said McGill's
wife, Mary.
Director of the county's
library system Jane Mock
said she was proud of the new
facility, at 732 Pat Thomas
Parkway, and hoped the
citizens of the county would
be proud as well. "Mr. McGill
was passionate about the
library. I hope he will be
pleased," she said.
Many people in the audience
remembered McGill for his
tenacity and for his ability to
stand firm for his beliefs. He

Calling Marsha Deane, chairman Ed Dixon said that
chairperson of the Gadsden he and Deane didn't always


agree on a lot of things, but
they did agree on the need for
a library. "We agreed on the
library but little else, not even
where it was to go," Dixon
said.
He promised to extend the
hours that the library would
be open to the applause of the
crowd that included members
of the legislative delegation,
Sen. Al Lawson and Rep.
Curtis Richardson, as well as
other elected and appointed
officials. "You should be able
to go anywhere in this county
and find a library. You can
find liquor stores open all
over the county, the drug
holes are open, why not
libraries?" asked Dixon.
"In eight years there should

will be," Dixon said.

Local woman to walk 60 miles for breast cancer research


By BYRON SPIRES
Times Staff Writer

How long will it take
someone to walk sixty miles?
Maria Horton will be able to
tell you that answer this fall.
Horton will participate in the
annual national breast cancer
walk in Tampa, Oct. 13-15.
Several thousand walkers will
make the sixty-mile trek at the
event to raise money for
breast cancer research.
"The more I thought about it,
the more I thought I could do
it," Horton said of her
decision to make the sixty-
mile walk for breast cancer.
Horton needs to raise $2200
for the walk, and so far has
$1300. She has contacted
many family members, friends
and co-workers for donations,
but is now expanding her
request to anyone who would
like to help her. You can
contact her at 850-663-3709 to
give a donation.
The money Horton raises
will go toward cancer research
through the Susan G. Komen
Breast Cancer Foundation,
which funds research,
education, screening and
treatment programs. The
National Philanthropic Trust


Breast Cancer Fund will
receive fifteen percent of the
money raised from the event.
Horton has participated in
several cancer society walk-a-
thon's over the years and
decided to take the big leap to
the sixty-miler after her
mother saw a public service
announcement on television
promoting the event.
Her mother, Elizabeth
Edenfield, knew her daughter
liked to walk and thought it
would be something Horton
would enjoy.
"This is right up your alley,"
Horton's mother told her.
She was right.
Horton made a couple of
phone calls and was soon
signed up for the three-day
event.
Now she had two problems.
First was the issue of raising
the money, but secondly, she
has to train for a sixty-mile
walk.
"I was more scared of
making the walk that raising
the money," Horton said.
Horton will be among over
2500 participants in this year's
Tampa event and all of them
are training for the long walk
to raise money and awareness
for Breast cancer research.


Picnic for successful

already walked up to ten miles
in one day.
The event will require her to
walk about 20 miles each day
over a designated course
through the Tampa Bay area.
The event is in the public
view, she said, to help bring
awareness to breast cancer and
its research. 4


In addition to lots of
practice, Horton will need
extremely good snug fitting
walking shoes and plenty of
socks (three a day) for the
arduous trek.
Although this is not a race to
see who finishes first,
everyone tries to make as far
as they can. Not everyone
will make the entire walk, but
Horton said she plans to make
the first and last steps of the
walk. "I plan to make it all the
way," she said.
When asked what had
motivated her to make such a
demanding walk, Horton
replied, "It is about the
awareness of breast cancer."
Horton does not have any
immediate family members
who have been victims of
breast cancer, but she does
have family and friends who
have battled the disease.
"Anything that will.help cure
breast cancer will help all
cancer victims," Horton said.
"This is about raising money
to find a cure for cancer."
Her family is very supportive
of her desire to start and finish
this walk. Her husband David
is helping her train, and
although her son, Curtis
Johnson, was surprised when

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.

Have ,'L', ee-i been sitting at a [able on your birthday- wii a cake full or lit candles for you to blow ouI, and though Lo yourself, "Who in the world ever slarled this
tradition?' Or perhaps have been to a wedding and wondered why the cake is such a key element of the celebration. At celebrations of any kind you are most likely to find
a cake. Most people have probably never wondered the origins of these cake traditions, or even where cakes came from in general, but they have been around for
Centuries:
Th most common typo of cake known to people today is the Birthday Cake. Almost very yearof a person's life is celebrated with a birthday cake, decorated with the
number of lit candles that corresponds tl. I-n e j Tradition states Lhat a person is to blow out all [heir candles at one time in order to grant them a wish and good luck for
the coming year. People have celebrated bilhi,s; for many centuries with cakes, but the modern "birtha y ca.l- "was not invented until the 1800's. I he song, 'Happy
Birthday to You, was not written until 191C. and so before this date, the phrase lappy Birthday' vw.ai nol ,,rittie on cakes. OIiier rIhra.m-,. such as. "Many More Retuming
Happy Days for You", and other long anecdotes wishing another good year were written on the annual cakes. T e irariit..iii r. bilir,,iay cake candles has also been around
for centuries. Most historians bolivoc that it has its origins back in Ancient Grcoce. To honor their god, Artemis, they woult bake him cakes, much different from 'he ones
lhal we know today, and light candles on it. so that their prayers to him would ride up on [he smoke and reach him in U- ici.wei. It is also said Lhat many other people
practiced this tradition in other religions. Another type oft cake that is very prevalent in modern traditions is the wedding cake. '"ec.inq cakes have been made since
ancient times. In Ancient Rome. it was customary to take cake and crumble it upon on the bride's head for gooc luck.Another ,*.ediirU. tradition, newer than most, coming
out of the Southern United States. is the -.i .,. Cake. A Groom's cake h Li:t.311. chocolate in flavor, as opposed to the traditional white wedding cake, and is often times
shaped, as something that reflects the groom's interests, such as a fish, or race car. In colonial times, it was tradition lo sand pieces of this cake home with guests, as
.opposed to serving at lhe reception.
loday baking a cake is one o:i tIe simplest things to do. Most people can go to the grocery store and buy, a cal e mi ., add eggs, water, and oil, and in about 4b minutes
they have a cake' Dut before modem h.kin, ingredients were around. cakes were very different. Most cakes wer, hi-a.: like. sweetened ti.hi raturail ingredients such as

First Annual Teacher and Community Support Day is a Success!
In Zora Neale Hurston's, Their Eyes Were Watching God, Janie says to Teacake, "If you kin see de light at
daybreak, you don't keer if you die at dusk. It's so many people never seen de light at all." How appropriate is
this statement in expressing the very sentiments of teachers honored and recognized on May 24, 2006 on the
courthouse square in Gadsden County.

The Gadsden County Classroom Teachers' Association and the various communities of the county joined efforts
in paying tribute to teachers for their dedicated services and commitment to the children of Gadsden County.
These teachers entered this profession with a mission to educate our children. This is their light, which so many
people have never seen. Therefore, to shine a light on their dedication, this day came to fruition. This was the
first of many gatherings as the teachers' association and the community plan to make this an annual event.
Teachers received words of inspiration and witnessed readings of proclamations. Entertained by musicians and
fed the best of foods, they fellowshipped with each other as never before. This event gave credibility to the
worth of teachers whose philosophy echoes the thoughts of Janie: "If you can see the light at daybreak, you
don't care if you die at dusk." It is the belief of the union that when teachers are recognized for their diligence,
credibility, knowledge, perseverance, dedication, and commitment to education, that is their light at daybreak,
and they will do (die at dusk) whatever it takes to ensure the safety and educational advancement of Gadsden
County's children.
GCCTA takes this opportunity to salute the Envision Credit Union, Parks and Crumps, LLC, Pat Thomas
Insurance, Grocery Outlet, Dale Summerford, Principal Rosalyn Smith, Principal Annette Harris, Principal Lillie
Jackson and CPA, Principal Willie C. Greene, Principal Alma West, Mayor Sherry Taylor, City Commissioner
Keith Dowdell, the City Quincy, Net Quincy, Coca Cola, Barkley Security, and the Gadsden County Sheriff
Department for their Contribution
GCCTA give thanks to Senator Al Lawson, Representative Curtis Richardson, former officers and members of
GCCTA, the Mayors of Gretna and Midway, the Gadsden County Times, the Chief of Police, the City of
Chattahoochee, the City of Havana, Gadsden School Board, Faith Based Organization Pastors Charlie and
Leanne Little, and the Fire Chief of Quincy for their support in this event. With your help, we demonstrated the
power of unity. When each one helps one, everyone grows!
Dwayne Ivory and Arnitta-Grice Walker, GCCTA President and Vice-President, respectively, and the entire
committee encourage the community to continue to embrace the teachers of this county as they continue to
embrace the children and the parents.

TCS lists honor students at end of school year


by Natalie Alday
Many students went out in style this
year as they rounded up the year making
"A" and "A/B" honor rolls. Some made
it for the fourth nine weeks and for the
year's final averages. I am very proud of
their achievements.
It takes diligence to keep up good
grades, especially at the end of the year.
Many students in middle and high school
were able to exempt finals. They were
only allowed to exempt two.
The criteria for exempting a final exam
were as follows: a yearly "A" average in
the class or semester course and no more
than six absences for the year or three
absences in a semester course. Way to
go TCS students! Have a great summer!
Don't forget -that report cards and
Presidential awards may be picked up
from the school office on Friday, June 9.

Southern Pine Beetle
prevention cost-share
program for to begin
Florida Agriculture and
Consumer Services
Commissioner Charles H.
Bronson is pleased to announce
that beginning May 1 the
department's Division of
Forestry will offer a new
Southern Pine Beetle
Prevention Cost Share Program
to eligible non-industrial
private forest landowners.
The goal of this program is
minimize southern pine beetle
damage in Florida by helping
forest landowners reduce the
susceptibility of their pine
stands to this destructive insect
pest.
Periodic southern pine beetle
outbreaks in Florida have
resulted in millions of cubic
feet of pine timber killed on
many thousands of acres.
Forest management practices,
such as thinning and prescribed
burning, can improve the
health of pine stands and
decrease their likelihood of
developing southern pine
beetle infestations.
The new program offers up to
50 percent cost reimbursement
for pre-commercial thinning
and prescribed burning
.treatments and a fixed-rate,
per-acre incentive payment for
landowners who conduct a first
pulpwood thinning.
The program is limited to 44
northern Florida counties
located within the range of the
southern pine beetle. Qualified
landowners may apply for one
approved practice per state
fiscal year. The minimum tract
size requirement is 10 acres,
and funding requests may not
exceed $10,000.
For an application and more
information on program
requirements and procedures,
please visit your local Division
of Forestry office at Bear
Creek Educational Forest, 850-
875-2937. The program is
supported through temporary
grants from the USDA Forest
Service and will be offered
only as long as funding is
available.

Having a 'field day'


Toughing out the heat and humidity, over 100 people from
Florida, Georgia and beyond participated in the local University of
Florida IFAS lab's annual vegetable field day.
Researchers from the University of Florida and other institutions
gave talks on a variety of issues facing produce in this area today,
including different diseases, new produce strains and new
pesticides.
Among the keynote speakers were Stuart Reitz, Steve Olson, Tim
Momol, Richard Sprenkel, Jim Rich and Josh Freeman. Reitz, .
pictured above, talked about controlling spotted wilt on tomatoes.
Kaolin, a fine clay, may be useful in repelling thrips, a small flying '.. .". .. ..
insect that often carries the harmful virus, he said. .
Participants rode around IFAS fields, off Pat Thomas Parkway,
in tractor-driven wagons. Field day officials served lunch following
the morning events.


Stay safe when using power

tools to clean up after storms


To prepare for the 2006 Hurricane Season,
the Outdoor Power Equipment Institute's
Education and Research Foundation strongly
encourages residents of storm-prone areas to
follow basic safety steps when using outdoor
power equipment for storm clean-up. When
used safely, outdoor power equipment can be
an efficient and beneficial tool for post-storm
clean-up.
Before a storm, check to make sure the
equipment is in working order, has fuel and is
ready to use. Store with appropriate safety
gear like gloves and eye and ear protection.
After a storm, emergency and medical help
may be difficult to obtain. Prevent post-
hurricane accidents from happening. Users of
all outdoor power equipment are urged to:
* Read the operator's manual before
operating equipment.
* Keep children and pets away from work
area.
* Dress properly for the job. Wear proper
footwear, snug clothing, gloves and eye/ear
protection.
* Clear area before starting.


* Handle gas carefully and shut off engine
when refueling.
* Keep hands and feet away from any
moving parts.
* Use appropriate tool to clear any jams only
after shutting off engine.
* Do not operate when tired or under the
influence of alcohol or medication.
* Operate only in well-ventilated areas.
For generator operation:
* Do not operate power generators in
enclosed areas. Carbon monoxide is a
colorless, odorless gas that can become
concentrated in enclosed areas, and cause
serious injury or death.
For chainsaw operation:
* Do not overreach.
* Secure footing, plan retreat path.
* Be aware of "kick-back," a violent reactive
force propelling the cutting bar back toward
the operator.
Clean-up can be safe. Spread the word on
safe use of outdoor power equipment. For
more key safety materials, please visit
www.opei.org/foundation.

Letters to the Editor
Continued from Page 4
and supporters for your continued support. For over sixty years, your
chamber is proud to be a part of Gadsden County and to represent its
citizens in economic and community development activities.
The Chamber represents Gadsden County in its entirety, including all of
the cities. Each month we receive in excess of 300 inquires from
businesses, residents and visitors. One of our purposes is to provide a
permanent location as a clearinghouse of information for these inquires.
The Chamber has worked closely with many entities to gather
information about community development, business recruitment, housing,
employment, events and recreational activities across the county. This
information is readily available in our office during our regular business
hours, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday. In addition the Chamber
has developed a web site, GadsdenFla.com, to enhance our ability to
provide information to the public.
Over the past year many good things have happened with the Gadsden
County Chamber of Commerce. First and foremost we have developed a
new "brand" for the Chamber. This image allows us to market the county
and its cities to a broad spectrum of potential clients. Gadsden County,
through the chamber, has been highlighted in several major magazines such
as Florida Monthly.
It is the chamber's intent to provide the best service we can through our
local Gadsden County office for all of the citizens of this county. Our sole
goal is to improve the quality of life for everyone in Gadsden County.
In the last few months it has come to our attention that there is another
chamber of commerce in the county. We would like to make it clear that
the Gadsden County Chamber of Commerce is in no way associated with
the new Midway Chamber of Commerce. We also want to make it clear
that we support Mayor Madison's initiatives regarding good economic
growth in Midway.
There are no copyrights on the "chamber of commerce" name or
requirements other than incorporation guidelines on using the name,
"chamber of commerce". We are issuing this letter to clarify any questions
regarding the relationship between the Midway Chamber of Commerce
and the Gadsden County Chamber of Commerce.
If you have any questions concerning this issue and the Gadsden County
Chamber of Commerce please contact Executive Director David Gardner
or Gia Howell at 850-627-9231.
David Gardner, Executive Director

proud to call friends, and I will always be thankful that they came
into our lives when they did. They helped make a difficult situation
bearable just by being friends when we needed friends.
Jimmy's health has fallen over the past few years. He battled with
diabetes and eventually was put on dialysis.
But through all of his suffering he still stayed Jimmy, tossing out a
witty comment or a little jab at you along the way.
I know he is now calling those square dance moves in heaven and
patiently straightening out the log jam that occurred when he said right
and half the dancers went left.
I miss you, Jimmy, and thanks for being my friend.


Hunkerin' Down with Kes

slower pace. People actually listened to what was being said. They
got to know their neighbors. They knew whose kids would work, and
whose wouldn't! They took the time to meet your uncle from Peoria.
They weren't in to slickness or presentation. They were just trying to
enjoy the moment.
It made a lasting impression on me.
I have tried my best over the years to write the way them Hunkering
down guys used to think. I'm not trying to sell you a newspaper. I'm
not trying to shock you each week. I don't want to intimidate or
threaten. And I certainly steer clear of telling you how to live your life!
I just enjoy spending a few minutes with you each week. I enjoy
telling you about Pam and LaRenda, Ricky and Yogi and Leon.
I love it when you stop me and tell me your story.
We may not be actually Hunkering. But we have moved a mite closer
to the ground....
Respectfully,
Kes
