[adsden, Leon, federal agencies stand by while relatives 'talk him out'


ALICE DU PONT
times Editor
young man suffering from what
orities called a "medical situation" had
enforcement agencies in two counties
dge Tuesday morning.
ff Sunday, 20, was taken in, custody and
sported to Tallahassee Memorial
pital for evaluation following an
luntary commit order signed by Judge
es Reynolds. But it was not before


Gadsden County deputies, U.S. Marshals
and a caravan of Leon County emergency
responders, including the SWAT Team,
Domestic Violence Task Force, and
Homeland Security, assembled near the
Sunday home in Oak Grove, about 10 miles
west of Quincy.
The strange turn of events began about
7:10 a.m. Tuesday when Sunday's mother
called 911 to report a disturbance. Major
David Ganious said the report he received
was that a man was barricaded inside a


house on Smithtown Road, a few yards
from the Florida-Georgia state line.
Ganious said deputies were on alert
because Sunday shot his dog before
authorities arrived and "we didn't know
what to expect," he said.
According to Ganious there was an
argument between Jeff and his father,
Aaron Mitchell, Sunday before authorities
were called.
Sunday had returned home from PATH, a
facility that treats people with mental


challenges. Ganious said he believed that
Sunday had been released this past weekend
and was not taking his medication properly.
"There were some mental health issues
there. He hadn't taken his medicine and we
think he just had a relapse," he said.
He had no history of violence, but
Ganious said additional backup was called
because Sheriff Morris Young felt it was
better not to take any chances after he killed
his dog earlier..

tampering
charges
By BYRON SPIRES
Times Staff Writer
Milton 0. Fagg, 23, has been
arrested on kidnapping (false
imprisonment) and witness
tampering with a state's witness
charges. Fagg was arrested June
16 at his home on Cooper Street.
According to a Quincy Police
report Fagg abducted a man that
was to testify against him in a
June 8, drug related trial. The
report states that Fagg took the
man to his home on June 7. Fagg
was able to coerce the man from
his home by telling him that if he
did not go with him he would
come back later and kill him and
kill everybody that lived with
him.
. The man went to Fagg's home
and later to a house next door.

utility collections


100 shut off,
$150,000 collected
as 85 paid bills
By BYRON SPIRES
Times Staff Writer
City manager Bill Bogan is
serious about collecting utility
bills.
"People are coming in and
paying their bills," Bogan said. In
one day this week the city
collected in excess of $150,000
in utility payments.
"I think people have got the
message," Bogan said. That
message is plain and simple,
Bogan said. In order for the city


to pay for the electricity, sewage
and water, the residents are going
to have to pay for their city
services.
Bogan announced at the last
week's commission meeting that
the city would be beefing up
utility bill collections with
several new procedures. The
commission approved the
procedures, before Bogan took
over as city manager.
The new procedures limit
payment extensions to customers
who have been established six
months or longer with no
returned checks or cut-off orders.
Other stipulations are also tied to
the new procedure including the

Bogan hits the ground running as new Quincy city manager


Takes tough stand

on financial

documentation

By BYRON SPIRES
Times Staff Writer
Bill Bogan has hit the road running in
his new job as city manager of Quincy in
troubling financial times.
City financial woes including a
$750,000 loan and dipping into the city's
reserves to reduce the deficit, a hiring
and spending freeze, a grim forensic
audit, and problems with two city bonds
over the last 18 months poses a
challenge for Bogan, but he said he is up
to it.
"I believe I have thoughts and ideas
that will help the citizens of Quincy,"
Bogan said.


Bogan said he believes the city has
enough funds coming in now to meet the
city's expenses. In order to do that,
Bogan said, there will have to be some
spending changes on the city's part.
"This situation did not happen
overnight and it will not be corrected
over night," Bogan said.
Bogan,'asked that citizens be patient
and they should start to see results in the
next couple of years. Bogan has worked
with Christie Joyner, interim finance
director, to start the process of bringing
the city's book keeping up date.
He is now meeting everyday with the
finance department and going over the
previous day's work. He is also putting
into place a number of checks and
balances to assure that the past does not
repeat itself.
"The only way we are going to get out
of this is to address all of the issues,"
Bogan said.
Purchase orders, credit cards and
refunds will be verified and backed with


documentation as part of Bogan's effort
to change the way the city spends
money. Bogan is meeting with every
department director to discuss ways of
streamlining their department and
examining ways they can provide better
services to the city's residents.,
Bogan said he knew the job would be
difficult, but, having been a financial
consultant for the city, he understands
many of the problems. He has developed
an attack plan to face these issues head
on.
* High on Bogan's list is being able to
provide the city commission with
sufficient background information on
issues that come before them, so they
can make informed decisions that affect
the city. He plans to provide them with
an analysis of the situation, options
available, and a staff recommendation.
Bogan admits, however, that it would
be some time in the fall before he can
give and accurate financial reports to the
commission.


* Utilities, Bogan said, are a primary
concern of all of Quincy's residents. He
intends to find ways to save energy, and
said he will aggressively examine ways
to help residents save money on their
utility bills. He plans to look for other
possible energy sources to help cut costs.
* The issue of unread meters will not be
tolerated tiunder Bogan's tenure. "I expect
people to do what they are paid to do,"
Bogan said of city employees.
He said he understands that the city
only has only two meter readers and that
it is a difficult task. Nonetheless, he said
he wants citizens to call the city
customer service department if they feel
their meters are not being, read. He
added if all avenues fail to produce
results, please call him directly
* Bogan wants to take a hard look at the
services the city is providing that other
governments in the county are benefiting
from. For instance, about 60 percent of
city recreation program participants live
outside of Quincy.

Anderson: Every day is a breath of fresh air


Heart/lung transplant


reverses 22 years of losing battle with getting his breath


By BYRON SPIRES
Times Staff Writer
A deep breath of clean, fresh air
ioes the body good.
No one knows that better than
Ralph Anderson, a recent
heart/lung transplant recipient.
Anderson, one of only three
heart/lung transplants in the last
two and a half years at Shands
Teaching Hospital in Gainesville,
can attest to the body's need for
air.
For the past 22 years Anderson
has slowly been losing the ability
to turn a breath of fresh air into
oxygen for his body's use, and
has fought the onslaught of a
disease determined to take his
breath away..
Although he was born with a
heart defect, Anderson was not
slowed down as child or young
adult. He was an active athlete,
playing both football and
baseball. .
A horrible car accident,
however, changed all of that for
Anderson.
His car's seatbelt failed as the
air bags deployed, causing
Anderson to take the full blunt
force of the explosively-
expanding air bag, followed by
the steering wheel, in his chest.
"I noticed his energy level
began to drop," Debra Anderson,
his wife of 31 years, said.
Eventually, Anderson was
diagnosed with pulmonary
hypertension, or in layman's
terms, high blood pressure in the
lungs.
Debra, a registered nurse with
Children's Medical Services and
a former ICU and pediatrics
nurse, knew he had problems.
: "There was no time to stop and
worry," Debra said. "His
philosophy was that God was in
charge and things will work out
the way they are supposed to
work out."
SThe pulmonary hypertension,
coupled with his pre-existing
heart condition, led to another
problem. He developed
Polycynthenia, a disorder that
causes the body to make too
(nany red blood cells.
,Anderson's body tried to
compensate for the lack of
oxygen and created more red
blood cells.
, This in turn made his blood too
thick and required regular trips to
the blood bank every few weeks
to give blood.
- In 2000 Anderson reached a
milestone with his disease. He
was not getting along very well
and, after some extensive tests,
wvas told he would eventually
teed a transplant.
I A trip to Shands Hospital would
verify his need for a transplant,
but there was a problem: Aderson
alid not qualify, at least not at the
moment.
' Anderson was told he was not
$ick enough for a transplant. In
other words, he needed to get a
lot sicker before he would be
allowed on the transplant list, a
grim reality for an already sick
lan.
' In the 'years that followed,
Anderson and his wife made trips
every six months to Shands for
tests, his health continually
deteriorating.
By the time he made it to the
transplant list, Anderson was on

some very strong, very costly
medication. A prescription
Anderson took before the
transplant, which consisted of one
pill a day, cost $4500 a month.
Anderson also became
dependent on a small oxygen tank
that he carried with him
everywhere he went, a smaller
version of a tank he used at
home.
The color of his skin began to
turn ashen and his lips turned
blue from lack of oxygen in his
system.
In November 2005 Anderson
had another heart catheterization
performed, and the prognosis was
not good. Both sides of his heart
were failing.
He was pushed up on the
transplant list and told it could be
as late as June 2006 before he
would receive the heart and lungs
he so desperately needed.
Anderson, Debra and their two
sons, Ralph II and Eric braced
themselves for a long wait.
"I just took it a day at a time,"
Debra said of the wait for a
donor.
During Anderson's entire ordeal
he continued to work, with only a
few bad days that kept him from
getting up and going to work. "I
just didn't have much energy,"
Anderson said of those days.

Finally. on Wednesday,
December 14, at 11 p.m. the
phone rang. "How fast can you
have him down here?" the voice
on the other end said.
"How fast you want him?"
Debra answered.
Eric drove them to Gainesville,
arriving around 2:15 a.m.
Thursday morning.
For Anderson, the whole
situation was nearly a total shock.
He was expecting this process to
drag out until June. Everything
happened so fast that it became a
blur of excitement as the family
rushed to Gainesville on the trip
of a lifetime.
Once at Shands, the blur
continued as Anderson was given
a room in preparation of the
events now unfolding.
As he lay in his room with a
host of doctors and nurses
prodding and checking him, he
heard a noise outside of his
window. "I heard the helicopter
landing and felt it was the
transplant organs coming in as I
lay in my bed waiting for the
surgery," Anderson said.
Surgeons came in his room and
told Anderson it was time to give
his wife a kiss.
Anderson was rolled into
surgery at 5 a.m. and was

by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

After months without a
permanent administrator, the
Gadsden County Health
Department got one Tuesday
night when Sylvia Forehand
Byrd vWas named to the
position. A native of Gadsden
County, Byrd said she was
happy to be returning home
and promised to give the job
her best effort.
Byrd began her career as a
nurse at Florida State Hospital
in Chattahoochee. Many people
will remember her as the person
who headed the first school
health clinic program at James
A. Shanks High School which
became the model for school
health clinics throughout the
state.
A few years later, she was
tapped by the late Gov. Lawton
Chiles to lead Gadsden Citizens
for Healthy Babies, which also
became a model program for
the state. Bryd left the county to
work in various capacities in
the Florida Department of
Health.
"I am delighted," she said, "to
be coming back home."
In other matters, Tuesday,
June 20, was proclaimed Dr.
Jessie Furlow Day in Gadsden
County. Chairman Ed Dixon
announced, in the form of a
resolution, that the day annually
will be known as her day.
The BoCC also recognized
Dr. Jessie Furlow for 24 years
of dedicated, loyal, and
outstanding medical service to
the citizens of Gadsden County.
Dixon said he asked Dr. Furlow
once how many patients she
had seen one year and she said
she didn't know. "The nurse
told me that she knew how
many people she had seen that

people, that's just amazing," he
said.
Her community service is
legendary. She has volunteered
her time and talent to worthy
causes throughout the county.
From volunteering to give free
sports physical to high school
students who couldn't afford
them to helping with Habitat
For Humanity, she is well
known for her spirit of giving.
The Memphis, Tennessee native
moved to Gadsden County in
1982 after graduating froii the
University of Rochester School
of Medicine and Dentistry and
residency in surgery at the
University of Cincinnati at
Cincinnati General Hospital.
Dixon praised Dr. Furlow for
her commitment to making a
difference in the quality of life
for the residents of the county.
He related a personal story to
the audience about an

Murray said that over the past
few months he has found many
violations including illegal
dumping, abandoned and
unkempt houses, as well as junk
cars.
"We will no longer tolerate
these types of violations."
Murray said he knows that the
problems cannot be fixed
overnight and asks for both
patience and help from the
community.
"I would appreciate any help
the citizens of Quincy can give
me in reference to violations in
their neighborhoods. Working
together, I believe we can make a
real difference in the way Quincy
looks," Murray said.

After a standing ovation, Dr.

know if she should receive the
honor. "I don't know if I'm
worthy of this. I appreciate it
and I will do my best to be

*Chris Floyd from the
American Red Cross announced
that the business community
was coming together on July 13
at 9 a.m. for a four-hour
tabletop exercise that will
provide business leaders and
company employees an
opportunity to learn the
importance of working together
when disaster strikes. The
exercise will be held in the
Conference Room of Tri Eagle

Road in Midway. Businesses
throughout the county are
invited.
*Commissioners unanimously
approved the county manager's
evaluation. Each commissioner
completed an evaluation of
Marlon Brown's first year on
the job. The evaluation rated
the manager in ten critical areas
of performance. Out of a
possible high score of five,
Brown rated 4.5.
*Chris Doolin of Christian B.
Doolin & Associates, the firm
leading the county's lobbying
efforts in the legislature, gave a
brief synopsis of the gains the
county made during the 2006
session. The county, he said,
brought home more than $6
million. Several rural county
initiatives, such as economic
development, health care, and


transportation will have long-
term effects on the county. He
suggested the county continue
efforts to attain grants that they
have gotten in the past.
*Richard Law of Law, Redd,

comments on this year's audit.
"Everything is square on the

they were minor and easily

Contemplation



Watson brought another


perspective, counter-balance


I was as surprised as anyone when
Sterling Watson made the
unexpected announcement that he
would not seek re-election to the
board of county commissioners. The
reason, he said, was that meetings
are getting longer and the issues
more complicated. And he is right.
Instead of meetings, these things
have become marathon sessions. Just
two weeks ago, a regular meeting
started at 6-p.m. and lasted until 11
p.m. It was not a frivilous meeting in
that all of the issues to be discussed
were important. It's just that there
were so many issues.
I have covered many meetings
where Watson sat in a seat in which
the voting public selected him to
occupy. From the Quincy
Commission to the board of county
commissioners, Watson served this
community. He wasn't always popular,
especially in the black community,
but, from where I sat, he made up his
mind and stayed with his decisions.
You never had to worry about
Watson and how he was going to
vote on some issues. If alcohol was
involved, from a festival to a club,
Watson was not going to support it.
Whether you agreed with him or not,
you had to respect that his votes
were based on what he thought was
in the best interest of the community.
My favorite spectator sport was


watching Watson and Ed Dixon
square off. For many years, I could
count on those two to provide a little
humor during the otherwise-boring
meetings. I knew they would bump
heads on roads, economic
development and spending for social
programs. A lot of people in the
audience thought they were angry
when the seemingly-nasty remarks
rolled off their tongues, but I knew
the deal. What the public didn't see
was that they often shook hands after
the meetings where they had, what I
will call, "sharp" exchanges.
Watson was needed on the
commission because he brought
another prospective, a counter-
balance, to the board. Whatever you
thought of Watson, a majority of his
constituents were pleased with his
performance in office. They kept
sending him back. More than once,
when a member of his district came
before the board, they prefaced their
remarks with what a good job he had
done for them.
Ironically, the people who
criticized Watson most often were
the people who didn't even live in
his district.
The field of candidates to replace
Watson grows daily, but Sterling
Watson was one of a kind and I, for
one, will miss him.

Winding Roads i



The birds were singing a


little louder than usual.


America lost a hero June 7, 2006. He
was a young man who fought for what
he believed in, and he gave the
ultimate sacrifice for freedom his life.
Second Lt. John Shaw Vaughan, at
the young age of 23, was buried last
Friday. He died while in combat in
Mosul, Iraq.
He was given a burial that honored
such a hero. There was a 21-gun salute,
an honor guard and, befittingly, an
army general there to console his
grieving family.
There have been very few times in
my life that I have been so moved by
such a saddening experience.
That happened to me at John's
funeral.
In order to write the story last week
about John's death and subsequent
funeral, I felt I needed to know a little
about the young man.
What I found was that John was a
very remarkable young man. He had
family and friends that cared a lot
about him. He impressed everyone
from his teachers to his commanding
officers.
It seems that everyone who came in
contact with John had the same
opinion of him that he was an all-
around good guy. At 23 years-old John
was already able to make his mark on
this world through his actions.
That says a lot about a his character
and the future that he was surely
headed for.

Those were my thoughts Friday as I
made my way back to my truck after
the funeral.
I was one of the last people to leave
the graveyard, and, as I walked, I could
hear the mockingbirds as they sang. It
seemed to me that they were singing a
little louder than usual.
The American flag at the entrance to
the graveyard was waving, almost
dancing against the wind. Then, for no
apparent reason, it went totally limp
and fell against the flagpole. It lay
there for a few seconds as if it were
contemplating its half-mast position. I
watched as a small gust of wind
unfurled it again and the flag stood at
attention once more.
I then looked down the tree covered
street ahead of me. I felt as if I were
walking along in some sort of dream.
What I saw became almost surreal to
me. It was like a scene out of a Frank
Capra movie.
I stopped in the center of the street
and looked back at the graveyard.
'Small town America buries one of
her own,' were the words that entered
my mind. I stood there alone in the
street, just me, the flagpole and the
mockingbirds singing.
It was then that I understood. This
scene has played out many, many
times in the past.
In my immediate family it has played

Law prohibits

charging landlords for

delinquent utilities

Mayor should be informed
before making proposals

Dear Editor;

I read the recent article, "Quincy tightens utility
policy", in total astonishment! I'm dumfounded
about several suggestions for collecting defaulted
utility payments offered by Mayor Sherrie Taylor.
As a public official, Mayor Taylor should be more
informed prior to offering ideas. A little research of
the Florida Statutes would have provided Taylor
with great insight and knowledge of the law. She
would have discovered that if a tenant contracts
services with a municipality, the landlord is not
accountable for the utility charges. According to
the Florida Statutes 180.135: "No municipality
may refuse services or discontinue utility, water, or
sewer services to the owner of any rental unit or to
a tenant or prospective tenant of such rental unit for
nonpayment of service charges incurred by a
former occupant of the rental unit; any such unpaid
service charges incurred by a former occupant will
not be the basis for any lien against the rental
property or legal action against the present tenant
or owner to recover such charges except to the
extent that the present tenant or owner has
benefited directly from the service provided to the
former occupant."
Taylor's proposal will position the City of Quincy
for a class action lawsuit! Although there are
several well-informed commissioners, local
citizens should be weary of the mismanagement
issues that have plagued the city I sincerely hope
the newly appointed city manager, Bill Bogan, will
bring more experience, leadership, and efficient
management that the citizens of Quincy deserve.


Sincerely,
TDPrice, Cantonment, FI

news, church news and such.
These well-read features have
been moved to the second
section of The Times, joining a
new section front page that will
include a community calendar
and a feature story from your
community.
When The Times had
outgrown the ability to print the
newspaper in just one section
every week we decided it
would be better for our readers
if we ran two sections all of the
time. That way you could
become accustomed to finding
certain things in certain places
every week.
We corralled our obituaries,
church news, school news,
classified ads and features into
a new section called
"Community".
After the initial confusion we
hope the new format makes
sense and becomes easier to
use.

By now, you've had the

What we don't know (unless

Please drop us an e-mail at

I did get some feedback from
one reader that said he
thoroughly enjoyed the
column .. at least until he tried
to see if he could still "hunker".

Looking' good

You've got to feel a sense of
pride this week in our school
system.
Ever since the state
educational system and our
state legislature hatched the
FCAT, Gadsden County
students have struggled to gain
acceptable grade levels.
Frankly we've just not made
the grade.
Last week, however, the
report cards came out...and this
one definitely "showed
improvement".
For the first time our
collective grade card didn't
have a single "F'. All Gadsden
County schools had passing
grades.
That doesn't mean that all of a
sudden we have top quality
schools to send our kids to.
There's still a long way to go
just to reach "average".
But it does mean our schools
are improving. That means our
kids are getting a better
education.
I certainly don't know the
details of improving schools'
performances. That's
something best left to the
education experts.
But I do know that when
schools' performances improve
students are better served.

Billboards becomes 'hot potato' for county


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

What to do about billboards and where
they should go, if at all, in Gadsden
'County will be left in the hands of the
:Planning and Zoning Commission.
The Board of County Commissioners
:decided it didn't want to handle such a
;hot potato at a workshop on the matter.
It seems that putting up billboards isn't
:as easy as it looks. Counties have to
'determine where and what size billboards
'should be.
' They also have to consult the Florida
:Department of Transportation. And since
:Gadsden County has an ordinance
:prohibiting billboards, the legality of the
'situation could get sticky.
* "We have some (billboards) in the
'county. There are 52 in the county and
:20 are not in compliance by the Florida
:Department of Transportation


standards.They were grandfathered in
and when they go, they're gone," said
Bill McCord, Growth Management
Director.
"Plus," McCord said, "other than the
companies paying a couple of thousand
of dollars in taxes each year, we don't
know the fiscal impact billbaords have
on businesses," he said.
Jim Kellum, who owns an antique
furniture in Havana, disagrees. "This
(billboards) is not a rattlesnake that will
kill people," he said. Kellum says the
county is missing the opportunity to
influence 50,000 to 60,000 people each
year who ride along Interstate 10.
He said the county is losing money
every day, money the business people
need. Kellum wants the county to get rid
of the ordinance and allow local people
to use the outdoor advertising to draw in
potential customers.
"If we're going to stay in business we


have to be competitive," he said.
The problem, said County Attorney
Thornton Williams, is that billboards
cannot be just for local merchants. "Once
they go up anyone can purchase the
space," he said.
Commissioner Brenda Holt said she
could not support lifting the ordinance if
it meant that anyone could come in and
purchase space. But Kellum said he has
no intention of destroying the county's
beauty by putting up 100-150 billboards.
He favors something tasteful, even 21st
century high-tech billboards that change
the message periodically.
Mike Dorian brought a picture of
billboards along Highway 27 in Havana.
He asked commissioners not to allow the
rest of the county to look that way.
"Duval County used to be ugly. It's
beautiful now that they have banned
billboards," Dorian said.
He said that one of the most beautiful


stretches of land on Interstate 10 is in
Gadsden County because there are few
billboards. "These guys aren't poor. In
exchange for a fee our citizens will have
to look at billboards for the next 30,40,
or 50 years," Dorian said.
Chairman Ed Dixon said he didn't want
to vote aganist lifting the billboard ban
outright and suggested that the matter be
sent to Planning and Zoning. He
recommended to Kellum that he and the
people who want billboards should
tighten up their plan, with facts and
figures, before they make an appeal to
the P & Z Commission.
He also suggested that Kellum meet
with the group who might oppose his
ideas and try to come to a compromise.
In an unrelated matter, the Road and
Bridge Director told the BoCC that
there's only $809,000 left in bond funds
in the $10 million dollar paving program.
That means only about 9.5 miles will


get paved. And all of it is going to be in
district 3, the district that Commissioner
Derrick Price represents. By a 3-2 vote
during a special county workshop, the
decision was made.
"I don't think that's fair," said
Commissioner Eugene Lamb, minutes
before the vote was taken.
This is the last of a paving project that
started the process of paving dirt roads
throughout the county in 1999. The roads
were selected, at the time the paving
began, based on the Comprehensive Plan
and what had been submitted to the
Department of Community Affairs.
Once most of the roads listed in the
Comp Plan were completed,
commissioners. approved a policy for
completing the remaining roads on the
list. That plan included paving any side
roads or other roads that may be in the
immediate area.

Collections

Continued from Page 1
number of extensions and
length between any extensions.
In that meeting the commission
found out that a majority of the
delinquent customers were
renters. There was some
discussion about tying the
delinquent bills to the property
owner, but the legal ramifications
may stymie that particular idea.
For Bogan however it is
apparent that the city needs to
have a strong collection
procedure in place and as city
manager he intends to enforce
that procedure. "The past is the
past," Bogan said about the way
collection have been handled.
Bogan said that his expectations
are that people will come in and
pay their bills. He said that there
are instances where people who
can prove a real hardship will be
able to work out an extension.
Each individual case will be
handled as it arises.
Bogan said that last week 100
residents had their utilities cut
off. According to Bogan, 85 of
those residents have been
reconnected after paying their
bills and a reconnect fee.
For those that may be confused
about the billing and cut-off
times here is the city's billing
structure:
Quincy's utility customers are
divided into two groups, which
are billed at two different times
during the month. Those
residential groups are based on
the area in the city in which they
live which sets the times that
their meters are read.
One group or cycle receives
their bills on the 10th of each
month with a due date of the
20th. The cut-off day for that
group is the 26th.
The other group receives their


December 29 at the home of
Alberta Godfrey, 521 Famcee
Ave., Tallahassee.


bills on the 26th of the month,
with a due date of the 5th of the
next month. Their cut-off is on
the 11th of each month.
The two billing dates allow the
city an opportunity to read meters
and mail the bills in a timely
manner.
The city, Bogan said, was
trying to collect on those bills
that were still outstanding prior
to his tenure. With the collection
procedures beginning to jell
Bogan is planning to aggressively
attack some of the past due
accounts owed to the city.
Bogan inherited $1.3 million in
past due utility bills, $700,000
having accumulated since 2001.
Included in those bills is about
$150,000 in bills tied up in
Bankruptcy Court.
Last week Bogan said that he
had turned $43,000 of the
delinquent bills over to a
collection agency as an
experiment to see if the agency
can collect the bills. The agency
will receive a percentage of each
bill they collect.
"We are not letting anybody
skate by us," Bogan said.

Anderson


Continued from Page 2
transferred to ICU before lunch,
the recipient of a new heart and
lungs. The miraculous surgery
had taken only about six hours.
"The doctors were amazed,"
Anderson said of how well the
transplant progressed. He. added
doctors told him, "It was as if the
organs were made for my body."
By Saturday, Anderson said he
was ready to come home. "I felt
like a whole new person,"
Anderson said.
In many ways Anderson was
right. Someone he did not know
and probably will never know
had given him a new lease on
life. Anderson still does not know
the donor's age, sex or
nationality.
"His lips are no longer blue,"
Debra thought upon seeing her
husband immediately following
surgery.
His son Eric had a similar
experience. He saw red instead of
the usual ashen color on his
father's skin. This was the first
time Eric, 20, had ever seen his
father not appear to be sick.
It was an emotional time for the
Andersons. A father and husband
had been snatched from the jaws
of death, and was given back to
his family.
By Sunday, Anderson was
walking the halls. He was still
weak, but he was on top of the
world.
He started physical therapy by
mid-week, and it was not long
before he and Debra moved into
an apartment near Shands,
staying while doctors stabilized
his anti-rejection medication.
Anderson knew he was getting
better with every day of physical
therapy, but, as with all transplant
patients, there is one defining
moment that they are sure things
are really better. In Anderson's
case, being able to climb a
staircase.
Steps had been Anderson's
nemesis since he became sick
decades earlier. It took all of his
energy to climb just a few steps
before his surgery. When he
moved into the apartment he
faced his first big obstacle, two
flights of stairs.
"I went up two flights of stairs
with no problem," Anderson said.
"I never realized how bad a shape
I was in until I got better."
Anderson now enjoys life at
home, and works four to five
hours a day.
"I take the steps at work now
instead of the elevator," he said
proudly.
Despite his progress, however,
Anderson is reminded daily of his
two-decades-long struggle. He
will always take anti-rejection
medication, and spends 30
minutes every day on a treadmill.

He takes a total of 14 different
pills a day, some twice a day. The
transplant and subsequent
medication have made him
diabetic, so sweets and other food
items are out of the question.
There will be no grass cutting or
dogs in Anderson's future, either,
as a cold or sinus infection could
cause some serious problems.
Anderson wears a mask to keep
out these and other infections,
although he is not contagious. In
addition, Anderson must still
make trips to Shands for check-
ups every six weeks.
Regardless of Anderson's
continued challenges, his wife
said she has never seen him with
such an abundance of energy, a
welcomed change from years of
seeing his energy level drain
away to nearly nothing.
"This is just the beginning,"
Anderson said of the flood of
good things in his life.
He and Debra want to spend
more time with Ralph II's
children. They have already done
some babysitting since he
returned home.
The pair intends to travel and

'Corny' mutants field day to be held

at FAMU research farm in Quincy
A bizarre maze of crazy corn make that a living field map of the
maize genome, according to Florida State University Biologist Hank
Bass will be on display from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Friday, June
23, during "'Maize-10-Maze" Field Day 2006, to be held at Florida
A&M University's Research Farm in Quincy.
Coordinated by FSU's biological science department and FAMU's
College of Engineering Sciences, Technology and Agriculture
(CESTA), the collaborative science outreach event is open to the
public, free of charge, and includes a cookout lunch and cold drinks.
Educational or summer camp groups are welcome.
Self-guided tours through the colorful Maize-10-Maze will
showcase nearly 100 mutant corn families, each representing a
single gene mutation in one of corn's 10 chromosomes. The field
model of ongoing maize genome research led by FSU Associate
Professor Bass serves to illustrate genetic control of plant growth
and development.
"You'll have to see it to believe it," Bass said of the "corny"
mutants, adding that June is a perfect time to view what he describes
as a sort of botanical carnival freak show. Among many unusual
specimens in the Maize-10-Maze are albino and six-inch-high dwarf
mutants along with a "lazy mutant" that prefers to lie on the ground
rather than stand up straight.
High school student participants in FAMU's FACE program
(Forestry and Conservation Education) will co-host the "a-maizing"
event. FACE, a summer outreach initiative co-directed by
FAMU/CESTA Professor Oghenekome Onokpise and Associate
Professor Dreamal Worthen, encourages African-American teens
and other minorities in low income counties to consider the science
of plant genetics for future careers in food production, forestry and
natural resources management.
In addition to youthful hosts from FACE, Maize-10-Maze Field
Day will feature an exhibit of middle school projects from Leon
County's School of Arts and Sciences.
This summer's Field Day is the third for FSU's Cytogenetic Map
of Maize outreach project and the first Maize-10-Maze collaboration
with FAMU; another is planned for 2007. By the end of the four-
year-long study funded in 2003 by a $1.5 million National
Science Foundation grant Bass and fellow FSU researchers aim
to draw a detailed cytogenetic map of corn that will help to grow
tastier, healthier, heartier and more diverse varieties of this
American agricultural workhorse.

the scientific research on which it's based or for rain date

Bogan


Continued from Page 1

He plans to streamline the city
government through attrition (not
replacing employees who retire
or leave) and deliver a better
product to the residents.
Bogan said he wants the most
for the city's dollars and will
examine what the city is paying
for goods and services and will
look at every contract the city has
established to see if it is the best
available.
Although not an immediate
goal, Bogan said the city needs to
develop an annexation plan. He
especially wants to look at
expanding the city's service
urban area (those areas outside
the city that use city utilities.)
Quincy is a very beautiful
place to live, he said, but there
are a significant number of code
violations that need to be
addressed. He wants code
enforcement beefed up and the
city cleaned up.
Bogan said he wants to look at
ways to join with other
governmental authorities in the
county and region to pool
resources for purchasing goods
. and services. For instance, he
said two or three cities could
joined forces in an inter-local
agreement to purchase health
insurance together.
Bogan's approach to his new
job as city manager can be
summed up in one simple
statement.
"I plan for the worst and work
for the best," Bogan said.
Bogan comes to the job with 27
years of experience in municipal
government operations. He is a
certified public accountant and
served as director of finance for
the Leon County Clerk of Courts
for 14 years.
He is a graduate of the
University of Florida and holds
certifications as a government
finance officer and public finance
officer. He is active in church and
civic organizations and has held
numerous positions in both areas.
The city of Quincy hired Bogan
as a financial consultant last year
to help dig the city out of a
financial quagmire.


Fagg

Continued from Page 1
The report states that crack
cocaine smokers use the house.
When the man did not sbow up
at the trial on June 8, the judge


postponed the trial until a later
date.
The man stayed at Fagg's home
from June 7, through June 12,
when he told Fagg that he was
leaving to go home to take a bath.
He left, the report said, without
any incident.
The man said he did not contact
the police because he did not
want Fagg to get in any more
trouble.
The report continued that, on
the 15th at approximately 5:30
p.m. the man was walking down
a local street when Fagg drove up
beside him and demanded that he
get in the vehicle with him. In
fear for his life the man obeyed.
Fagg then told him that he would
be taken back to Fagg's house
and kept for six or seven days
until the trial was over.
People staying Fagg's house at
the time were told to not let the
man out of the house.
The man's daughter contacted
the police about her father being
held against his will. The police
entered the house and found the
man sitting in a bedroom.
Fagg is currently being held in
the Gadsden County jail under a
$500,000 bond.



Standoff

Continued from Page 1
He told deputies that he killed
the animal because he would
attack and he wanted to do it
rather than have law enforcement
shoot the animal.
Sunday came out of the house
without incident after he asked
for and was given permission to
talk with his best friend and his
brother. "They were really the
ones who talked him out and he
came out without any problems,"
Ganious said.
The Leon County Hostage
Negotiation Team was waiting at
the intersection of Smithtown
Road and U.S. Highway 90, just
in case they were needed.
Hours after the standoff, The
SWAT team was still at the
Sunday resident, securing
weapons that, Ganious said, were
mostly hunting rifles.
Just before noon, Sunday's
father was arrested and jailed on
charges of obstruction.
"Emotions and tensions were
high and he didn't think we
should have called the media," he
said.
No charges are likely to be filed
against Jeff Sunday.


1st crape myrtle field day at UF/IFAS


Nurserymen, landscapers,
master gardeners, home owners
and plant lovers are all invited to
attend the University of
Florida/Institute of Food and
Agricultural Sciences or
UF/IFAS Crape Myrtle Field
Day, Wednesday, July 12 at the
North Florida Research and
Education Center (NFREC) in
Quincy, from 8:30 to 11:30 a.m.
and repeated from 1 to 4 p.m.
The Crape Myrtle Field Day
will showcase the NFREC-
Quincy's extensive collection of
more than 90 crape myrtle
species and cultivars, featuring
the newest red-flowered crape
myrtles.
The Field Day is an opportunity
for those interested in crape
myrtles to learn about new
varieties, compare varieties side
by side, and talk with UF/IFAS
professor of environmental
horticulture, Dr. Gary Knox.
Experts from the Crape Myrtle
Society of America, which is also
sponsoring the Field Day, will
discuss their experiences with
new crape myrtle varieties.
"Crape myrtle is one of our
most popular and important
landscape plants," Knox says.
"This field day is a great
opportunity to learn about the
.new red-flowered and dwarf
types, and compare them to older
varieties."
Crape myrtles are one of the
most widely planted trees and
shrubs in the south. Once
established, few other plants can
flower as much while tolerating
drought and tough urban
environments, as well as the


south's heat and humidity.
Because of extensive breeding
programs, crape myrtles are now
available in sizes ranging from
large trees to dwarf plants used in
hanging baskets.
The programs at NFREC-
Quincy cover a wide range of
crops, including vegetables, small
grains, agronomic row crops,
forages, ornamentals, tree fruits,
and forestry.
Handouts, snacks and
refreshments will be provided.
Registration is -$5 per person
before July 7 and $10 is the day
of the event. To register or for
more information, visit
http://nfrec.ifas.ufl.edu/crapemyrt
le.htm, or call (850) 875-7100,

Five local women to be honored at upcoming luncheon


by Alice Du Pont
Times Editor

Saturday, June 24, five local
women will be honored in five
separate categories for service
they have given to the community
by the Gadsden County Chapter
of the National Hook-Up of
Black Women. The annual
luncheon will be held at the
Quincy Conference Center on Pat
Thomas Parkway from 12 noon
to 2 p.m. The $7 luncheon tickets
can be purchased at the door.
The '2006 recipients are:
Rosalyn Smith, education;
Sherrie Taylor, community
service; Robin Watkins, business;
Elizabeth Yates, religion; and
Linda Hamilton York, family
values. "We have an outstanding
group of women this year. This is
our way of making the
community aware of the caliber
of women we have living among
us," said chairwoman, Moneek
Walker..
Rosalyn West Smith, the
principal at James A. Shanks
Middle School is the education
award recipient. An educator in
the Gadsden County School
District since 1969, Smith's
consideration" of students is first
in her life. She is a champion of
schools and communities
working together to help students
reach their career goals.
"She has influenced and
enriched so many lives


throughout Gadsden County.
Students like to emulate people
who carry themselves in a
manner that speaks of their
professionalism and their
character and that is what sets her
apart. I remember her as a teacher
when I was a student. Definitely,
she was one teacher that all the
students admired," said Walker.
Sherrie Taylor, Mayor of
Quincy, was selected as the
community service awardee. But
even before she entered politics
Taylor could be seen helping
others in the community. From
trying help the less fortunate get
food, clothing or decent housing
to finding constructive things for
children during the summer,
Taylor likes to help.
Several years ago, in an effort to
keep kids off the street after
school and during the summer,
she founded Children Are Our
Future. Her intent was to offer
enrichment through mentoring,
technology, physical fitness,
culture, and education.
"Her dedication to this
community goes far beyond her
role as a politician. She always
talks to people. She likes to make
a difference in the lives of others
and she has devoted herself to
that cause," Walker said.
Robin Watkins started her
decorating business in 1996 along
with her husband, Reginald.

Lori Welch and Jack Garrett


announce July 15 marriage

Lori Ann Welch and Jack Daniel Garrett of Live Oak would like to
announce their upcoming marriage. Lori is the daughter of Carolyn
Vickery of Live Oak and Pete Welch of Breman, Ga. and the
stepdaughter of the late W.W. Vickery. Danny is the son of Jack and
Barbara Garrett of Live Oak.
Danny is employed by the Suwannee County Board of County
Commissioners.

Family and friends of the couple are invited to attend. No local
invitations are being sent. Ms. Welch is from Quincy.

sought after event decorating
businesses in the area. "I always
felt that I had a flair for
decorating. My grandmother,
Veresta Dixon, was always
creative and tasteful. I specialize
in receptions, banquets, parties,
and reunions. But I can decorate
for two or two thousand," she
said.
Walker said Watkins was
selectedibecause of her success in
business. "Opening a business
and keeping it going is hard
enough and for wbmen it is more
difficult. She was selected
because she is an example, of
what a hardworking woman can
achieve," she said.
The minister of Greater Tanner
Chapel African Methodist
Episcopal Church in Quincy is
the recipient of the award for
religion. Elizabeth Yates has only
been in the. county for a few
years, but she has made her mark
in the religious community. The
first woman to lead the-102 year
old church, she accepted the
challenge with pride and
enthusiasm.
Rev. Yates brings to the
ministry a strong financial
background and has been able to
use those skills to assist many
churches in the county with
financial and business plans for
church growth and expansion.
Walker said Yates was selected
because she brings more than
religion to the table. "We need

more role models like her. Who
says a minister and a Christian
woman cannot be an asset in the
financial world?" But her church
work, in the many forms that it
has taken, is why Yates is the
2006 recipient for religion.
Linda York, the recipient for
family values is an old-fashioned
mother, wife, and caring citizen
and that's just the way she likes
it. When her seven children were
born, she didn't leave the home to
find fulfillment outside of the
home. She reared her children
with the same values of honesty
and integrity that she was raised
to appreciate.
Not only did she raise her own
children, she supported the
dreams and aspirations of her
nephews and nieces and other
neighborhood children. She is
known as "the quiet lady"
because she dispenses her special
brand of love through her beliefs
in the Bible. But, while her
children were getting spiritual
guidance from her and her
husband, the Rev. Bennie York,
they were also getting valuable
lessons on the virtues of hard
work.
"This lady is the epitome of
what family values are all about,"
Walker said.
The National Hook-Up has been
honoring Gadsden County
women for the past seven years,
according to Walker. "The

Senior Appreciation day to be held in Quincy


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

There's Valentine's Day and Mother's Day
and Father's Day and Children's Day and
other kinds of days where individuals. are

County are recognized.

in Gadsden County will be honored with
Senior Appreciation Day at the Gadsden
County Senior Citizens Center on LaSalle
Leffall Drive in Quincy.

Potential home buyers get 'helping hand'


Self-help housing program kicks off Friday in Midway


by ALICE DUPONT
Times Editor

Buying a house, for many people, is only a
far away dream. Now, with the help of a non-
profit organization called Helping Hands of
North Florida, Inc., a new home just might be
in your future.
A kick-off ceremony for this area will be
held Friday morning, June 23, at 11 o'clock
at 324 Mine Road in Midway. This is a
mutual self-help housing program designed to
give very low-income residents of Gadsden
County the opportunity to become
homeowners, said Verda Owens-Bennett.
This is how the program works: the potential
homeowner must give at least $25,000 worth
of labor while the house is under construction
and will be required to contribute 25 hours of
labor per week. Each member of the family 16
years and older will be required to work.
Owens-Bennett said people are not required to
do skilled labor. "We have someone for that.
But there is something they can do-if it's


picking up nails or sweeping. Family
members and friends can also contribute to
the weekly requirement of 25 hours," she said.
All of the work on the houses is supervised
by qualified construction professionals who
contribute at least 65 percent of the
construction labor. Homeowners select the
colors of their homes, finish, landscaping and
the homes are among the most energy
efficient on the market today. The homes can
be constructed anywhere in the county.
Bennet said the need for the housing
program is past due for counties like Gadsden.
"Being a social worker, I got tired of going
into people's home and looking up and seeing
the sky or looking down and seeing the floor,"
she said.
Anyone with an annual income of between
$20,500 and $54,300 is eligible. However,
participants must qualify f6r a Rural Housing
Development loan. Some borrowers may
qualify for an interest rate as low as 1 percent
and loan payments are adjusted based on
changes in income. Owens-Bennett said that


there is no down payment and closing costs
are included in the loan amount.
Past credit problems will not automatically
disqualify an individual from participating in
the program. A $100,000 house could cost the
new homwowner as little as $297 per month.
People who currently live in Section Eight
Housing (a federally-funded housing program
where the government pays full or partial
rent) can qualify. Owens-Bennett said the
housing voucher may be enough to cover the
mortgage.
"The intent of the program is to help
households become successful homeowners
by providing technical assistance which
includes homeownership education, loan
packaging, and construction supervision,"
Ownes-Bennett said.
If you cannot make the kick-off, call Owens-
Bennett at (850) 222-1830 or (850) 281-6460.
You could be in your own new home soon.
The program, according to Owens-Bennett,
has been a tremendous success in Orange and
Dade counties.

grimaced with every rise of the
bar. I got tired just looking at
him. "Yog, why can't they just
make a pill that you could take
that would make you bigger and
stronger?"
"Wouldn't that be something,
just plop it in and add twenty
pounds of muscle!"
Now folks, we were just pipe
dreaming here. Two undersized
little boys on a fantasy trip-we
were wishing for that miracle that
would make us faster than a
speeding bullet, more powerful
than a locomotive, able to leap a
tall brother in a single
bound..*..and we wanted it right
now.....without having to sweat
like Marlin for it.
It never, ever dawned on us that
such a pill could exist!
Every parent, coach and
responsible adult we had ever
known made a "big deal" out of
that "no short cut to success"
lecture. It was just "work, work,
work!" "Dig, dig, dig!" "No pain,
no gain." "No one said it would
be easy." "Victory doesn't always
go to the swiftest, but to the one
who prepares the hardest...."
Who would have ever thought
in our little comer of the universe
in 1963 that there actually was a
shortcut! Shucks, we didn't even
get a chance to try it. It was if we
were destined to be small, weak
and slow.
Mary Hadley didn't marry me.
And I was a terrible football
player.
I think it mostly was because
my Charles Atlas body building
course never did come in.
It wasn't until I came home
after my junior year in college
and ran across Skipper Ardmore,
our mail carrier out on Rural
Route 2, that the truth finally hit
me. He had gained about two
inches in height and forty pounds
of rock solid muscle....

out twice.
My cousin, James
Henderson, died in Korea. He
was a young man like John
and died before I could get to
know him. My mother often
talked about what a good
person James had been. Those
that grew up around him have
the same comments.
My cousin, Pete Shutt, was
killed in Vietnam while I was
still in high school. I knew
Pete, a very personable fellow,
and, like John, he had a lot of
family and friends that loved
him. I made it a point to see
Pete's name on the Vietnam
Veteran's Memorial in
Washington, D.C. That was
another one of those times that
I found it hard to hold back
the tears.
John, James and Pete's
sacrifices were for what they
believed in. They not only
gave their lives, they gave up


their futures, as well.
My heart goes out to the
family of John. They too, have
made a tremendous sacrifice.
I know John will always be
missed. I know he will always
be remembered. I know he
will always be in the hearts of
those that loved him so dearly.


God bless the Vaughan

have endured such a traumatic
experience, and God bless the

the families across America

Next Level Basketball Camp draws college-

aged players from southeast and abroad


Lady Superfriends take


Sunshine State title


McMillan leads
team to junior
varsity division
championship

by Joe Ferolito
Times Sports Writer

Chelsa McMillan scored 31
points, pulled off 14 rebounds,
and had four blocked shots to
pace the Quincy Lady
Superfriends past the Wellington
Wolves in a 63-54 win Sunday
afternoon in Miami. '. The
championship game win in the
Junior Varsity Division gave a
Quincy team a third state title in
the games since 1.998.
McMillan was also on the
championship team in 2004 and
on the 2005 team that finished
second.
Quincy won their first game
in the tournament Friday night
when they bested the Titusville
Lady Comets 66-46 with Traci


Lewis popping in 24 points,
Jasmine Grice getting 19, and
McMillan scoring 13.
Saturday morning the
Quincy team faced the West Palm
Beach Holiday Hoops and came
away with a 67-37 victory.
McMillan dominated that
game with 28 points and 14
rebounds, while Grice and Lewis
had 13 points each.
Saturday afternoon the Lady
Superfriends met the Seminoles,
a team made up entirely of Native
Americans. The Quincy team
prevailed in that game by the
score of 54-37. Grice hit 19
points in the game, Lewis had 14,
McMillan 12, and Tisha Francis
10.
Sunday morning the Lady
Superfriends faced the Miami
Magic in the semi-finals
prevailing 64-54 again placing
four girls in double-figure
scoring. McMillan and Lewis led
the way with 13 each. Francis
scored 12, Grice had 11.
That set the stage for Sunday
afternoons final which McMillan


dominated to get the Quincy team
the championship.
McMillan, the MVP of the
tournament, Grice, Lewis, and
Francis will attend East Gadsden
next fall as will Superfriend team
mates Charlandria Brown,
Patricia Drayton, Tierica Frost,
Midreka Hobley, Daphne
McLaurin, Niara Randolph,
Audrey Unanka, Deondra Watson
and Mia Woodard. Other Lady
Superfriend players Whitney
Lewis and Elmira Raines will
attend Sneads.
Superfriends coach Tim
Brown said. "I was very proud of
the effort of all the girl's in
winning this tournament. I also
want to thank all the supporters
who made this possible."
The Superfriends have been
invited to participate in the
Alabama Shootout in late July.
Anyone who wishes to help
sponsor the teams trip should call
Brown at 524-0610.

A new basketball camp hosted
by. East Gadsden High School
will draw college-aged players
from from as far away as Canada
and New Jersey.
Next Level Basketball Camp, to
be held June 24, will not only
give college-level basketball
players -a chance to "show their
stuff' to European basketball
scouts, but will also provide local
residents with family-oriented
sports entertainment, Dimitric
Salters, camp director, said.
"We seek out the best (college-
aged) talent here and all over the
country, and we're giving college
guys a chance to take it to the
next level," Salters said. "If
you're a young high school or
middle school athlete this is a


great opportunity to come out and
see some great college talent in a
family environment and a good
festive atmosphere. It will also
give some exposure to the
county, and it's good for the
community."
Over 23 scouts from foreign
professional basketball teams will
work one-on-one with players at
the one-day camp, observing their
skills and guiding them toward
their "big break."
Clemon Johnson, who played
basketball 10 years in the NBA
and five in Italy; Chad Johnson,
former NCAA player; and
Salters, who picked up NAIA
All-American honors and played
in Europe four years, are
instructors at the camp.
Spots for camp participants are
almost full, but those interested
can register online at


Aegis Scott basketball


camp dubbed a success


On behalf of the Aegis Scott
Sports Foundation, its officers,
staff, volunteers and sponsors, we
would like to thank the parents of
the students who participated in
the first.annual basketball camp.
The camp was held at James A.
Shanks Middle School from May


30 to June 2, and hosted 25
participants. Each participant
received a certificate for
successfully completing the basic
fundamentals and rules of
basketball, camp t-shirt,
basketball video and pin, a copy
of Sports Illustrated for Kids and


www.nextlevelbb.com or call
850-915-9365. The camp costs
$180 for each participant, a price
that includes the camp and a
jersey.
Camp organizers will accept
some registrations the morning of
the camp, but space is very
limited, Salters said. Registration
is from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m., and the
camp will begin at 10 a.m. and
last "into the night" according to
Salters.
Admission to watch the camp is
free, but organizers ask for a
three dollar donation that will go
toward the EGHS boy's
basketball teams.
Salters said he decided to locate
the camp in Quincy because of its
central location in north Florida.
This is the camp's first year, but
Salters said it has been in the
works for "a couple of years."

Three years ago I obtained my Florida

on a $10,000 automobile.

ngram's Marina gets new owners


Afterf 36 years Josh
decides it's time to rock
on the porch a while

By BYRON SPIRES
Times Staff Writer

Josh Ingram, one of Gadsden County's
retail legends has decided to retire.
Ingram's Marina on Lake Talquin will
still continue to operate, but Josh is going
to sit on the front porch of his new home
and do some serious rocking.
"It has been great," Ingram said about the
3 years he has operated the marina near
the moth of Hammock Creek on Lake
Talquin.
Ingram started out in the retail business
back in 1969 when he took over the family
store in Salem, near Havana. Ingram's Bait
and Tackle sat at the corner of Highway 12
and the Dog Town Road.
After about a year Ingram decided it was
time for a change.
His father Josh Sr. owned some property
on Lake Talquin and had been renting
boats to local fisherman.
"We had 55 boats that we rented with an
old tin shed as a makeshift store," Josh
said.
A long-time family employee, Jim Bo,
Ingram said stayed at the lake most of the
time and rented the boats and minded the
little store.
"I remember the most boat rentals we
ever had was 110 in one day," Ingram said.
The reason for so many rentals with only
55 boats Ingram said was that most people
rented the boats for only half a day. So


there was a morning launching and then an
afternoon.launching. Another reason,
Ingram added that almost everyone had to
paddle the boat to their favorite fishing
spot.
Ingram said he decided to move his store
down to the lake.
So in 1970 he did just that. He had the
old store torn down and the wood used to
build his current store. "It was my dad's
dream to one day have a marina on this
property," Ingram said about the decision
to set up shop on Lake Talquin.
Today the Marina offers a full service
store, rental property including travel
trailer spaces, boat launching and boat
slips.
"Josh's place", as the local call the
marina, has become synonymous with
Lake Talquin.
Over the years Ingram has seen many
fisherman through the doors of his store.
He said that it is not uncommon now to see
the third generation of a family come to the
lake to fish.
"People are bringing their kids here now
that came here as kids," Ingrain said.
His customers have been from all over
the United States and even a few foreign
countries.
Some of the more famous have been
Tanya Tucker, the singing group Alabama
and Enos from The Dukes of Hazzard.
Back in the early days Ingram said he
would open the marina at 4 A.M. and be
there until midnight some nights waiting
on travelers to make it to the lake. He
cannot hold out to do that many hours now,
Ingram said.
To help with the time he painted his

It's tomato-picking time in Gadsden; crop is good


by ALICE DU PONT
TImes Editor


No need to look at the calendar. It's easy to tell when it
happens. Tomato season is here. Beginning June 1, heavy
trucks laden with the green tomato bounty from nearby
fields make their way through downtown Quincy to several
tomato packing houses scattered around town.
The local population swells, as migrant workers who
harvest the luscious, mostly green fruit seem to appear
overnight.


The crop, which pumps millions into the local economy, is
a mainstay of the county's financial backbone. So far this
year the crops have been good and the products have been
plentiful. "Everything seems to be going fine. I haven't
heard any major complaints from the farmers," Dr. Henry
Grant, director of the county's extension service, said.
The price per box, he added, could be better, however.
"Right now they are getting about $4 per box, and it's
expected to go up," Grant said.
Earlier this year there were some problems with
disease."Due to the warm winter we had a few problems, but


that wasn't nearly as bad as it could have been," he said.
Another problem that some farmers experienced last year
seems to be tapering off. Grant said that hiring crews to pick
the fields doesn't seem to be a problem. "Because of
Hurricane Katrina a lot of the labor used to pick the tomatoes
went to Alabama, Mississippi, and Louisiana to work last
year," Grant said.
At best, agriculture is an industry that depend on things
that the farmer does not control. "Unfortunately, our fortune
sometimes is a result of the misfortune of others," Grant
said.

The Need for
Spiritual Power
by Paul F. Joyner, Ph.D.

There is much being said today
about spiritual renewal. Robert
Girard .says, "The church needs
more than anything else to know
Christ. They need to know him as
the living Son of God and to
know the blessed Holy Spirit; to
know him personally and to
know Him in the power of His
resurrection."
If any congregation needs
spiritual
renewal, it
is not
necessarily
because
they do not
have a
dynamic
leader or
because
they no
longer have
a strong Sunday night or
midweek services.
If a congregation is not
accomplishing God's purpose for
it in the world, it is because that
congregation has lost personal
fellowship with Jesus Christ. It
has evidently forgotten how to
properly worship Him, enjoy
Him, thank Him and to praise
Him. It has forgotten how to pray
genuinely to Him. It has lost that
precious fellowship with Him and
no longer has a love relationship
as it once had. Renewal must
come if the church is to
accomplish what God has
planned for it.
The Holy Spirit is in the world
today revealing himself in
outstanding ways. He is a tender
and faithful Spirit wooing men
and leading them to the cross
where Jesus Christ can save.
An elderly Chinese lady once
said to Dr. Paul S. Rees, "What
we need more than anything else
is Christ-intoxicated
missionaries."


Christian. The more Christ-
intoxicated members we have,
the more the world will pay
attention to the church, and the

in ministering in a community.
If religion subscribes only to
ethical and moral rules of
conduct, then the church has not
found the secret to spiritual

equivalent of a social or
recreational club, it cannot
accomplish God's purpose for it
in the world.

powerhouse where men and
women find transformation at the


feet of Jesus. Then the church
will have compassion and will be
mightly used of God.
Faith is absolutely essential to
such renewal. The church must
be filled with overflowing faith.
We must believe God can do
anything, anytime, anywhere if
we only give him the opportunity
to work as he desires.
Visit us at the Berean Church
south of the old high school
building in Chattachoochee. Dr.
Joyner can be reached at (850)
674-2633.

Th- le warmest of the four seasons in the United States, and in the Northern Hemisphere, is summer. Summer starts around
N- June 21st and usually lasts until the 22nd or 2 3rd of September. The reason that summer in the United States is warm is
because it is at this time that the sun is closest to the Northern Hemisphere of our planet. The first day of summer is June
__ __21st. because it is this day that we experience a phenomenon called the summer solstice. The solstice is the longest day of
the year in a hemisphere, or the day that there is the most sunlight. While the Northern Hemisphere experiences summer in
S iJune, in other parts of the world in the Souihern Hemisphere, they are experiencing the beginning of their winter season. The
J J word 'summer' is derived from the Old Norse word, sumar.
Summer is a great season to spend time / During the summer in the United States, kids are on summer break from school. This is a time that kids are able to play

School Board "tightens its belt," searching for


teacher raise money in budget at recent workshop


Position
consolidation and
leftover class size
reduction money
may clear up
funds for raises

by Brian Dekle
Times Intern

Items discussed Monday at a
Gadsden County School Board
workshop may clear up
expenditures in the budget and
bring teachers closer to their
promised raise.
Consolidating teacher and
administrative positions and
leftover state-appropriated class
rise reduction money may free
around $200,000 in the school
budget to be used toward teacher
salaries next year, Gadsden
County School Superintendent
Reginald James told board
members.
Other budget items


recommended for closer review at
the workshop may open up even
more money for salaries, as well.
Board members will look at these
items over the next week and
discuss their findings and
recommendations at the next
budget workshop, which the
board will schedule at Tuesday's
regular board meeting.
Consolidating jobs does not
mean axing employees, James
explained.
For instance, he said, the
Gadsden County Schools
coordinator of parent services
will soon take over the
coordinator of guidance and
counseling job, leaving the parent
services spot vacant.
James said the board plans to ax
the parent services coordinator
position or consolidate it with
another position, eliminating that
salary, and, thus, clearing out that
expenditure, which can be used
for teacher salaries next year.
The former Gadsden County
guidance and counseling
coordinator recently took a job
with the Florida Department of


Education, so eliminating the
position does not mean anyone
has or will be fired for the
purpose of consolidation.
James added the district has
$120,000 in leftover class size
reduction money, and, since the
district has met state class size
reduction standards, the board
can apply that money to the
general fund to be used for
teacher salaries.
Roger Milton, district five board
member and board chairman,
asked about the $95,000 that is
expected to be needed from the
board this year to cover after-
school program costs, saying he
thought grant money funded
many of those programs.
Jay Corbett, assistant
superintendent of finance,
explained that money primarily
pays for elementary after-school
program teacher and
paraprofessional salaries. He
added the program was originally
designed to be largely financially
self-sufficient, except for an
initial $20,000 allotment by the
school board to get the program


started several years ago.
However, he said, many parents
don't pay program fees and other
costs, which often goes
unenforced, leaving the school
board to pick up the tab for
continuing the program.
Milton said the board should
examine that program more
closely to see how to continue it
with less financial burden on the
school board. "I think we
definitely need to take a look at
that," James concurred.
Milton expressed concerns
about high transportation costs,
saying the board needs to look at
transportation costs for athletic
events and ways to reduce that.
He said he has seen several
school band and athletic busses at
sporting events carrying only a
few people and said the schools
need to find ways to consolidate
students on busses or find other
means of transport. James said
schools should also schedule boys
and girls games together, and
generally better schedule games
to reduce mileage and, thus, cut
costs.


Issac Simmons, district three
board member, later asked if
schools are reimbursing the
transportation department for
field trips and athletic trip costs.
Joe Lewis, Gadsden County
schools director of transportation,
who was present in the audience
at the workshop, responded that
although it is generally not a
problem with elementary schools,
secondary schools typically do
not pay back transport costs, even
though they are invoiced.
Secondary schools in Gadsden
County may even owe the
transportation department "a
couple of hundred thousand
dollars for the last two years,"
Lewis told the board.
Milton said the board can look
at that issue and hopefully help
the transportation department
invoice and collect money from
schools. This may significantly
reduce budget money necessary
to fund the transportation
department.
Milton also asked about high
costs of school copy machine
maintenance. Corbett explained


the district generally replaces two
copiers each year, and often these
machines come from several
different companies and require
different parts and different
maintenance people.
Milton suggested purchasing
copiers from only one company
in the future. James said that was
a good idea, and added a copy
machine company that sells to
FAMU and other schools is
currently ,courting the district,
claiming to be able to save the
board a lot of money.
Finally, Milton implored board
members to "be proactive" and
look at other items on the budget
this week so they can suggest
other ways to save at the next
budget workshop. James added
he wants to have another
workshop soon to wrap things up.
"We've already identified about
$250,000 that we can use toward
teacher salaries," James said,
adding if board members
continue to examine potential
savings, even more money can be
cleared up for teacher pay raises.

Moving, storage company

breaks ground in Midway
T 818 0 O


by Brian Dekle
Times Intern
A national moving and storage company recently
broke ground in Midway, adding yet another
business to the small east Gadsden County town's
rapid growth.
The PODS company is building a 24,000 square
foot, air conditioned warehouse in the Midway
10/90 Commerce Park. The facility will house 400
PODS storage containers, which can be moved to
houses as storage containers and then moved to a
warehouse or other location when filled.
Construction is expected to be completed by
September, and .over the next six months, franchise
owners say thl'y will hire several employees in
addition to the five who will transfer to the Gadsden
County location from Tallahassee.
"PODS is an excellent addition to Gadsden
County's fast-growing business sector. Gadsden
County is a county on the move, and it is companies
like PODS that are willing to invest over a million
dollars to build that prove there is a bright future
ahead for this community. Not only will this new
business bring tax dollars to Midway and our
county, but they will also provide jobs and a better
future for our residents," David Gardner, Gadsden
County Chamber of Commerce executive director,
said.
PODS containers come in 8' x 8' x 16' and 8' x 8'
x 12' sizes, capable of holding the contents of 1500-
and 1200-square-foot homes, according to a


chamber of commerce news release. The company
has three trucks equipped with a "Podzilla" lift,
allowing the storage containers to be kept level
during delivery.
"We are able to help our customers move either
across town or across the country, as well as provide
temporary on-site storage while doing home
renovations. We are the perfect solution for
someone who has a gap between closings," Matt
Parker, local franchise co-owner, said. He and his
partner, Jordan Matheson, expressed excitement
about being in Gadsden County.
"We are happy to be here in the Midway
community,'and we are looking forward to a long
and prosperous association with Gadsden County,"
Parker said.
Local government officials say they are pleased
with the move, as well.
"PODS is another great addition to our growing
number of businesses here in Midway. We are
proud to have these types of clean industries come
to our community," Midway mayor Delores
Madison said.
"This is a great new business for Midway and
Gadsden County. It is these types of good clean
businesses that we are encouraging to settle in our
great county," Gadsden County Commissioner
Eugene Lamb concurred.
RAM Construction of Midway is the contractor for
the project.

Life in New Orleans still getting 'harder every day'


3-week escape to
Havana behind them...
months in a FEMA
trailer still ahead

by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

Asaki Lane said being in New Orleans,
trying to rebuild her life and that of her
family, gets harder everyday. "I never
knew life could be so hard," she said
Monday, from the FEMA trailer she and
her three children and fiance share,
parked in her aunt's front yard.
Lane and her family, along with 24
other members of the family stayed with
her parents, Lawrence and Chante
Pillers, in Havana for nearly three weeks
after Hurrican Katrina.
On September 26; the family moved
back to New Orleans and found what


they feared most: the devastation was
much worse than they thought. Looters
helped themselves to most of the things
the hurricane and six feet of water
spared. "All of our windows were broken
out (from the looters) and they stole what
they could. The roof was severely
damaged and we lost all of the contents.
The insurance company paid for the roof,
but not the contents," said.
"We're trying to rebuild our home. We
had only been in it five years and there
were a lot of things that we didn't
know," Lane said. Dealing with the
aftermath of the hurricane has cost the
family financially in more ways than
one.
Shortly after they returned home the
mortgage company informed them that
they had to pay the entire remaining
mortgage to keep the house. "We didn't
know any better. We paid $40,000
outright to keep from losing the house,
even thought we weren't behind in the
payments, and that left us strapped for


cash," she said.
They later found that they didn't have
to pay off the entire loan, which she said
was another slap in the face and hit to the
pocketbook. Her days consist mostly of
dropping the children off at school,
talking to contractors, getting quotes and
bids and trying to get someone to fit
them in their work schedule. They have
to be doubly careful not to deal with
dishonest contractors and workers. They
need 22 windows and the cost will be
$22,000 she has been told. To rewire the
house will cost $12,000 and $1,500 to
install plumbing. "Right now we can't
even get sheet rock," she said.
Recently, thieves struck again. "They
broke in and stole a chandelier and some
plumbing fixtures we'd just bought and
had in the garage," she said, "I just pray
everyday."
Living in a tiny two-bedrom trailer with
a 15-year-old boy who is six-feet-one-
inch tall, an 11 year-old girl who is five-
feet-seven-inches tall and a seven-year-


old who stands at five-feet-three-inches
tall gets pretty dicey at times. "It's
horrible for the kids. The cramped
conditions are hard on them. I've got
them in counseling," she said. Not only
is the family coping with a natural
disaster, in March a close family member
shot and killed his family, adding to the
stress.
Lane needs counseling too for
depression and anxiety, but because the
government counts the dollars she would
be making on her old job as income, she
doesn't qualify for aid. When she tried to
tell officials that her job at Delgado
Community College was gone because
student enrollment dropped from 16,000
to 5,000 students and her job was gone, it
fell on deaf ears.
The family is still scattered. "Some
returned to New Orleans but we still
have family in Atlanta and Mississippi.
They want to come back home, but they
can't right now. There's no place for
them to go. Parts of the' city are still


without electricity and you can still see
houses in the middle of the street," she
said.
Friends too are missing. She has yet to
contact many of her friends and former
co-workers. I don't know where they are,
but some probably can't afford to come
back now. Apaiftments that used to rent
for $500 now rent for $1,200. Milk is
about $5 a gallon and everything closes
up early." she said.
"I keep hearing people say there are a
lot of jobs out here, but most places can't
give you a 40-hour week, and you can't
take care of a family on $8 an hour," she
said.
On June 1 FEMA is stopping all
payments to hurricane victims and all
federal benefits will end, just in time for
another hurricane season.
"We'll be on our own, I just have to
pray but we're staying in New
Orleans," Lane said.


Talquin prepares year-round for hurricane season


By Brian Dekle
Times Intern

When mother nature leaves thousands in the dark,
Talquin Electric crews step in to shed a little light.
With another active hurricane season upon us,
however, keeping homes and businesses illuminated
is not as easy as saying "let there be light."
Power outages are a near-inevitable reality of
hurricane season, but the local electric cooperative
tries to make them as short and painless as possible
by heading off problems, a year-round job involving
hours of brainstorming, planning and networking
with other co-ops from around the region.
"This year, we've been preparing year-round
because last year people saw from the media (the
effects 'of a major storm). Just for the last two years
there's been too many storms, so it's on
everybody's minds," Bobby Kimbro, director of
engineering and operations services, said'.
"We try to think of every little thing that could go
wrong, and we can operate 24/7 if needed," Bernard
Rowan, area operating superintendent, added.
All year Talquin crews roam the county trimming
tree limbs away from power lines and right of ways,
one of the most effective methods of keeping the
juice flowing during storms with strong winds,
according to Kimbro. Talquin Electric officials
encourage all co-op members to report potentially
problematic trees near power lines.
The company stocks up on repair and replacement
parts prior to hurricane season as well, ensuring
enough materials for at least the first several days
following a destructive storm.
Practice drills help keep electric crews sharp and
on their toes before a storm strikes, and a strong
network with other area electric cooperatives and
contractors ensure that help, when needed, is always
just a phone call away.
All of these efforts seem to pay off, as power
outages following hurricanes or tropical storms


during the last several years have lasted only a few
days, according to Kimbro. In fact, the last time an
extended power outage occurred in the four counties
Talquin Electric serves was 1985 following
Hurricane Kate, a destructive category three storm.
Power was out for three weeks after Kate, but with
new, smoother restoration plans and, if a sufficient
level of help from other co-ops is available, Kimbro
said he'd be "disappointed" if power was out that
long following the next "big one" here. Long term
preparation initiatives, such as replacing weak
copper power lines with stronger aluminum core,
steel reinforced lines, will help keep power loss and
recovery time down in the future, as well.
While preparedness is essential, it's what happens
after the big storm that really determines how fast
power will be back on line. Talquin Electric sends
out crews as soon as it is 'safely possible following a
storm, first fixing damaged transmission lines,
followed by substations and primary power lines
that run along main streets and into hospitals and
businesses.
"The goal is to get as many online as fast as you
can, primarily medical facilities," Bill James,
manager of planning and design, said. "The key is
getting help in here and being willing to do
whatever it takes. Crews are willing to work around
the clock."
In the meantime, the co-op can place four two-
megawatt portable generators wherever most
needed, usually hospitals and supply- stores like
Wal-Mart. The co-op also has its own in-house
generators that ensure recovery operations can
continue even when everyone else is without power.
"All people's (Talquin Electric employee's) other
duties cease until we get power on. That's our
priority," James said.
Following major storms, Talquin Electric often
gets extra manpower from other co-ops, some as far-
away as the midwest. The logistics of feeding and
housing so many displaced workers can be daunting,

cabins different colors and had
the keys waiting on the
customers. They just needed to
know what color the cabin was
painted.
Today his hours are more
reasonable, just 6 A.M. to 8 P.M.
Ingram considers himself a very
lucky and blessed man. He has
faced many obstacles in his life.
It is one thing to own and
operate a business for 36 plus
years, but to do it with an illness
hanging over you is one notch
short of an absolute miracle.
As a young man Ingram was
told he had a malignant tumor on
his brain. It was bad news and the
only cure he was told was
surgery. The tumor however was
a cyst and thankfully it was not
malignant.
"I think the good Lord turned it
to a cyst," Ingram said. The cyst
is still there and Ingram has had
to deal with many health issues
over the last 36 years. But he is a
survivor and believes that God
will take care of you.
No story about Ingram and Lake
Talquin would be complete
unless you mentioned some of the
people that have crossed his path
over the years.
Although there are many, a few
of them stood out the most.
Don Hall, Ingram said, was the
best fisherman on Lake Talquin.
He not only was the best
fisherman, Ingram said, but he
taught most of a whole generation
of Talquin fisherman how to fish
the lake.
"There is not a day that goes by
that someone doesn't mention
Don," Ingram said.
Ingram said that Hall was the
most consistent fisherman on the
lake. "He fished every day,"
Ingram said. He had a pet peeve,
actually two pet peeves, Ingram
said.
Hall wore a life jacket and
drove his boat wide open
everywhere he went.
Any one who has been on Lake
Talquin knows that it is full of
stumps and wide open on a boat
is a little dangerous.
"I made the mistake of going
with Don one afternoon up to the
Iron Curtain (About 8-10 miles

marina over the weekend.


away from the marina)," Ingram
said.
Night fell on the pair while they
were fishing which meant a long
ride back across a treacherous
lake full of stumps at night.
"Don had a theory that all of the
stumps went down at night,"
Ingram said.
Somehow the pair made it back
safely and Ingram said he made a
pledge to himself that night not to
make that mistake again.
Hall passed away several years
ago.
Another great Lake Talquin
fisherman, Ingram said was
Herschel Shepard.
"He was a good friend," Ingram
said.
Shepard guided on the lake and
fished several tournaments over
the years. He, too, passed away
several years ago.
Anyone who has been to
Ingram's is familiar with Bobby
Lee. He likes to ride around the
marina on his four-wheeler and
he is not bashful about meeting
people. A good asset for Ingram
"Bobby Lee visits me every
day," Ingram said about his
friend.
Ingram lost another of his old
friends recently. "Roscoe,"

passed away lying on the bench


in front of the store.
Roscoe was an eight year-old
white bulldog that had become a
mainstay for all of the visitors to
the marina.
"Everybody down here knows
Roscoe," Ingram said.
Things have really changed
over the years, Ingram said.
When he first opened his marina,
there was Bill's Bait and Tackle ,
with Herschel Edwards and
Harold's Bait and Tackle with
Mrs. Harold.
"A lot of things have changed
over the years," Ingram said.
Ingram will officially turn the
keys over to the new owners at
the end of June.
The future he said for him
included getting the new fire
station up and running on Cook
Landing Road and then some
more rocking.

Research farm
offers chance to

"adopt a plant"

by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

Do you know how many varieties
of hot peppers are in the world?
Actually, no one really knows, not
even those pepper-loving humans
who travel from place to place in
search of the hottest peppers they
can find.
If you're a pepperhead or just love
the tingle of hot peppers on your
tongue, or want the feel of the
pepper backbite in your throat, the
Florida A & M Research Farm in
Quincy is the place to be. The farm
is located on State Road 268
(Bainbridge Highway) about six
miles from Quincy just before St.
John Elementary School.
The FAMU Cooperative
Extension Program is sponsoring
the Community Adopt-A-Plant Day
Friday, June 23, from 9 a.m. to 1
p.m. for small farmers, gardening
enthusiasts and agricultural
hobbyist who want to try out their
green thumbs. "We're inviting
everyone (not just pepperheads)to
contact the extension. service and
sign up to receive free habanero
pepper and sorrel plants for
replanting," said Marian Gibbons,
of the FAMU School of
Agriculture.
Gibbons said the outreach event is
an opportunity for interested local
farmers in growing any of the 500-
plus hot pepper plants. Both sorrel
and habanero peppers are
categorized as alternative crops in
the North Forida area. "The FAMU
extension faculty will be available
to provide growers with hands-on
technical assistance and resource
information to help them produce
successful crops," Gibbons said.
There is no limit 'to the number of
sorrel plants individuals can
receive. Anyone interested in the
Adopt-A-Plant program should
contact Gilbert Queely at (850)
599-3546, or fax him at (850) 561-


2151 no later than 5 p.m. on
Wednesday, June 21.
The hot peppers, sorrel, and a
variety of traditional crops such as
sweet com, okra, eggplant,
tomatoes, bell pepper, sweet
potatoes, snap beans, squash and
cucumbers are growing in
demonstration plots at the research
farm, as well as alternative crops
like papaya.
"Corny Science Field Day" is also
scheduled for Friday, June 23 from
9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. The farm is
open to the public for tours of
crops, livestock, herbal and spice
gardens during that time.
This interesting and unique event
will feature mutant corn families
and demonstrate how genetic
control of plant growth and
development is achieved. This part
of the event is co-hosted by the
FAMU College of Engineering,
Science, Technology and
Agriculture, and Florida State
University through a National
Science Foundation grant.
