NAACP:

County

officials

discriminate

by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
Sam Hawkins, president of the
local branch of the National
Association for the Advancement
of Colored People (NAACP), filed
a formal complaint Monday with
County Manager Marlon Brown
asking for the "immediate and
simultaneous dismissal of Road
and Bridge Director Robert
Presnell and Personnel Director
Arthur Lawson."
Hawkins said he gave Brown
information over a month ago
outlining discriminatory practices,
employee mistreatment and lack of
appropriate spending in the
department and Brown failed to
act on it.
The complaints range from a
supervisor using profanity toward
subordinates to a county
commissioner using county
equipment for personal use.
Brown has forwarded Hawkins'
allegations to county attorney
Thornton Williams and asked that
he conduct an investigation into
the allegations. "I think this is best
since there is an allegation against
a commissioner and the assistant
county manager who would
ordinarily conduct this type of
investigation. 'With any formal
complaint I receive, I have to do
an investigation," Brown said.
But Hawkins said he wants
Presniell and Lawson off the job
during the investigation so
employees will be free to speak
and not fear retaliation.
"As to your requests to dismiss
both Mr. Robert Presnell (Public
Works Director) and and Mr.
Arthur Lawson (Assistant County
Manager/Personnel Director) or
suspend pending the outcome of
the investigation, I have
determined that I will not submit
to either request and that any
personnel actions regarding these
two employees will be made based
on factual information, if the
investigation determines such,"
Brown wrote to Hawkins.

Teachers expected
to approve board's
7% pay hike offer
By Brian Dekle
Times Intern
Gadsden County teachers may
have to clear room in their
pockets for more money next
year, as the school board and
teacher's union representatives
have finally reached a pay raise
consensus after months of heated
deliberations.
Both sides agreed at Monday
night's bargaining session to give
teachers a seven percent raise


across-the-board for next school
year.
Teachers must now vote via
mail-out ballot whether to ratify
or shoot down the raise offer, but
both school board and teachers
union officials expect the raise to
handily get teachers' thumbs up.
"I'm pleased with it (the pay
raise agreement). I commend the
Gadsden County Teacher's
Association for working in a
spirit of harmony in the best
interest of both our teachers and
students. They did work in a
spirit of harmony and we do feel
good about it. It moves our
salaries forward and that's

Bogan contract


leads to proposal


for public hearing


Dr. Jessie V. Furlow
1949-2006


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
Longtime medical doctor, surgeon, and
community activist Jessie V. Furlow, '57, died
Saturday morning at Tallahassee Memorial
Hospital after a long fight with pulmonary illness.
She came to Quincy 24 years ago next month.
Her family said she loved "being a country
doctor." This country town loved her, too.
County Commissioner Brenda Holt was a scrub
nurse at the old Gadsden Memorial Hospital when
Furlow came to town. "She was the best thing
that ever happened to Gadsden County. She really
cared about her patients and she worked countless
hours to take care of them.It wasn't always easy
for her, but she was all about helping the needy,"
she said.
"She was sent by God to Gadsden County," said
Carmen Cummings, aide to Congressman Allen
Boyd and former WCTV anchor.
"She was such a wonderful person. She did so
much for that community and for us all," she said,


upon hearing of her death Sunday afternoon.
"Dr. Jessie was a genuine person with a
genuinely good heart. There can be no one who
can ever take her place," said Millie Forehand,
executive director of the Community Economic
Development Organization and close friend.
Furlow served as on the Board of Director for the
past 23 years.
A trustee since the Florida State University
Board was established in 2001, she served on the
Academic Affairs Committee and attended the
board's last meeting just two weeks ago. Her
intelligence and dedication will be missed, board
chairman Jim Smith said.
"She was totally committed, very involved and
on top of the issues. Even when she was very,
very ill she never missed a board or committee
meeting. She was quiet, but when she had
something to say you needed to listen because it
was important," Smith said.
Following her death, people throughout the
community used the same adjectives to describe

For the third meeting in a row
Quincy city manager Bill
Bogan's contract was a hot topic
of discussion.
This time the appointment and
removal of the city manager
made it to center stage. Both
issues are in the city Charter and
will require an ordinance that
must be voted on by Quincy
voters.
At the last meeting city attorney
Jack McLean was instructed to
bring back an ordinance that
would change the way in which
the manager could be terminated.
McLean explained that the
changes would streamline the
process allowing only a two-
week notice to the city manager
before he can be removed.
The new ordinance said
removing of the manager must be
placed on the agenda at least two
weeks prior to any action being
taken. It would also take three of
the five commissioners voting to
remove him.
In addition, the ordinance fixed
the terms of the manager's
relationship with the city by


contractual agreement.
Commissioner Keith Dowdell
said he held a community
meeting recently and the issue of
firing and hiring of the city
manager had been discussed.
His constituents want to have
input into the issue and feel that
limiting the process was not fair
to the citizens.
After all of the discussion the
commission sent McLean back to
the drawing board for some more
tweaking of the process allowing
a "public hearing" as part of the
hiring and firing of a city
manager.
The ordinances will be
advertised and must complete
two public hearings before they
go before the city electorate.
In a similar issue, Bogan's
evaluation was another topic of
discussion.
McLean had also been
instructed to bring an amendment
to Bogan's contract before the
commission concerning regular
evaluations of the city manager.
Bogan had agreed in the last
meeting when the subject came
up about evaluations that it could

Thomas fires back response to auditor's remarks


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

Clerk of the Court Nicholas labeled
statements made during last Tuesday's
regular meeting of the Board of County
Commissioners by auditor Richard Law as
false and misleading.
Law, in giving remarks on the county's
2005 audit report, said if anything
happened to Finance Director Connie
McLendon the department would- "shut
down". The finance office is under the
clerk of the courts.
"While she is an integral part of the


department, she has .assembled an
outstanding staff which she has cross-
trained. They are very capable of carrying
on all phases of the department in her
absence. The entire staff is very
responsible, and I assure you that the
department would not 'shut down' if
anything happened to the director,"
Thomas wrote in a memo Monday.
Thomas said he takes pride in the fact
that the county has received good audit
reports for the past 18 years and that
Law's "non-audit related" comments had
nothing to do with what he should have
been discussing.
"Besides," Thomas said, "Law, nor


anyone from the auditing firm, ever spoke
to me," Thomas said.
In a memo dated January 17 of this year,
Thomas informed commissioners that
Helene Shuler would be attending all
board meetings on behalf of his office.
"I have also desginated her to be my
liaison to the county manager and staff.
She has been a certified public accountant
since 1993 and is the assistant finance
director," Thomas wrote.
The move was made, he said, to enhance
cohesiveness and to insure the accuracy of
the records. County Manager Marlon
Brown had earlier expressed to the board
that he was experiencing difficulties


communicating with the clerk.
In his remarks, Law told the board he felt
the clerk's office was understaffed.
"That's not true," Thomas said, "I have
two certified public accountants on staff,
the board doesn't have even one. I was the
only constitutional officer whose budget
was cut last year."
Last month, Thomas submitted his 2006-
2007 budget request.
"I feel that this is a conservative budget
request that will enable this to office to
fulfill its statutory responsibilities," he
said.

A 68 year journey


Postcard sent in 1938 finds its way back to its sender


By BYRON SPIRES
Times Staff Writer
It's not a note in a bottle but
it's pretty close.
A postcard mailed 68 years ago
from an 11-year-old boy in
Quincy made it back to its writer
last week.
Stanley Bums, 79, wrote the
letter to his teacher in
Pennsylvania in 1938 after
moving back to Quincy.
David Gardner, chamber of
commerce executive director and
also an avid eBay watcher,
collects memorabilia associated
with Quincy and Gadsden
County.
Gardner bid on the postcard
because it had a picture of the
old Gadsden High School and
Elementary School, now
Gadsden Magnet Elementary
School, on the front of it. An
antique dealer from
Pennsylvania placed the postcard
on the online auction.
Over a couple of days Gardner
watched the piece of county
history raise a few cents at a
time, but he finally won the
auction, placing the high bid of
four dollars, and had the card
shipped to him.
Upon receiving the item, it was
not until he flipped it over that
he found out who had written the
postcard Stanley Bums.
"I just thought it was neat that
the card had actually been
written by someone from
Quincy," Gardner said.
Gardner presented the card to
Bums as a gift last week. Bums
was surprised when Gardner
called him and said he had
something to give him.
"I had no idea what he had,"
Bums said about receiving the
postcard after so many years.
After taking the card home,
Bums said a lot of memories
about those days came flooding
back.
"We had moved to Linesville
Pennsylvania in 1933 and my
father went to work with his
brother," Bums said.
It was the heart of the
depression and Bums' uncle
owned a dairy farm. He said he


He worked at the Quincy State
Bank for 38 years, and became
the bank president before he
retired in 1984.
He decided retirement wasn't
his cup of tea and in 1990 he
started back to work for
Nicholas Thomas, Gadsden
County's clerk of courts.
He said recently he has no
plans to retire again anytimeM
soon.
Burns said his friends were
amazed when he told them about
Gardner finding a postcard he
had written so long ago.
"It is a small world after all,"
Burns said.

could remember working on the
farm, hauling milk and
especially the snow.
"We had 12 to 15-foot snow
drifts one winter," Bums said.
Bums went to school in an
adjoining town of Espyville for
several years, he said, but in the
sixth grade the family move back
to Gadsden County.
. "I promised to write one of my
teachers after we moved back,"
Burns said.
Bums wrote Mr. B. R. Haynes
in January of 1938.*


On the front of the card is a
photo of the school taken from
near the corner of King and
North Key Street, and Bums
made a notation of where his
classroom was located.
On the, back of the post card
Bums wrote about the warm
winter he was experiencing. He
also added in the letter,"This is a
nice big school I go to. It has
over a 1000 pupils."
A lot of water has gone under
the bridge for Burns since that
first winter back in Quincy.

Times Staff Writer
What direction the Quincy
commissioners want to see the
city's business park take was the
topic of Tuesday afternoon's
workshop.
The city purchased the land for
the business park in 1996. The
348 acres is divided into two
sections along Joe Adam's Road
The initial cost for the property
was $800,000, city attorney Jack
McLean said.
Currently two businesses, All-
Tech Southeast and Big Bend
Rebar, are located on the north
side of Joe Adam's Road, the first
phase of the park to be
developed.
There are three lots in the first
phase that remain vacant. The
infrastructure for the first phase
was completed in 2004, but the
south side of the park does not
have infrastructure in place.
The park is located about a mile
from the Interstate 10 and Pat
Thomas Parkway intersection, a
prime location for potential
business.
Commissioner Finley Cook,
who was not on the commission
at the time of the purchase, said
he understood the land was to be


used to stimulate economic
growth for the city.
Cook advocated that the south
side of the park, which is still
undeveloped, had sat too long as
idle property.
The City of Midway's business
park Cook said was "smoking".
He said that it was time to put the
park on the market and sell it to a
developer. Cook said there were
developers out there that could
develop and sell the business
park.
"We need to use it for what it
was bought for," Cook said. The
property he said should be used
to create jobs for local citizens.
In addition Cook said that the
city should be concentrating on
its current financial problems and
let those with the know-how sell
the park.
Commissioner Keith Dowdell
said now may not be .a good time
to sell. "Land right now is not a
hot commodity," Dowdell said.
Dowdell went on to say that he
did not feel comfortable with
selling the land at this time.
Commissioner Derrick Elias
also did not want to sell the park
In addition to commissioners'
comments, Gadsden County
Chamber of Commerce David
Gardner spoke on the issue of the


park.
The city and chamber struck a
deal last year to work together on
promoting the park.
The problem in promoting the
park, Gardner said, is the lack of
any infrastructure. There is
currently no water or sewage on
the property.
"Seventy percent of the
prospects we have want a
building already in place,
Gardner said.
Because of the issues with
wetlands and flood zones, only
about 84 acres of the remaining
land may be suitable for building,
which limits the number of
business lots that can be sold.
Selling the park, putting up a
speculative building or possibly
using the land for high density
housing were some of the options
Gardner mentioned.
City manager Bill Bogan told
the commissioners that he was
working on a plan to get the city
out of its current financial
problems. By doing that he said
the city may be able to hold on to
the park.
The issue will come up again in
the July 25 meeting when Bogan
presents his city financial plan.

Simmons announces for re-election
in district three school board seat


Issac Simmons Jr., is
recognized as one of the leading
school board members
throughout the state of Florida.
He is a state-certified school
board member. Also, Simmons
completed the Master School
Board Program, sponsored by the
Florida School Board
Association. The master board
certification provides the board
and superintendent with
extensive training to meet the
hallengese of operating a school
district.
Simmons was the recipient of
the distinguished Pat Spengler
Award, given to a school board
member within the state of
Florida for outstanding
legislative service and untiring
efforts to assure equal
educational opportunities for all
children. Out of his eight years of
service, Simmons has served four
years as chairman of the board.
Improving overall school safety
and academic performance has
provided many challenges for
Simmons. He is seeking the
opportunity to continue to ensure
that our schools move forward
and follow through on many
academic programs that have
been implemented.
Simmons believes our school
district is heading in the right
direction and that many excellent
programs are in place, including
a full-time alternative school.
This school year, the Gadsden
County school district had no
failing schools. All schools were
recognized by the Florida
Department of Education for
making significant academic
progress.

Issac Simmons Jr.


His philosophy is to represent
all people, listen to their concerns
and continue to-be a strong voice
for public education. If our
schools are to be ranked with the
best, we must continue to make
academic advancements that will
attract a diverse student
population, along with highly-
qualified teachers and
administrators.
Simmons has a strong belief
that the success of our county
hinges on the quality of
education provided in our district
schools. His experience, work
ethic and leadership ability
provide him with the expertise
needed to continue to represent
district three in a fair and
professional manner.
Simmons says it is an honor
and a privilege to represent the
citizens of district three, which
includes the following
communities: Chattahoochee,
Greensboro, Rosedale, Flat
Creek, Oak Grove, Sycamore, St.
James, Sawdust, St. Mary, Bear
Creek, Providence and Juniper.


GCHC's Martinez briefs

chamber on healthcare plan


by BRIAN DEKLE
Times Intern
Gadsden County ranks high in
stroke deaths, diabetes deaths,
HIV/AIDS deaths, infant
mortality rates and other health
issues when compared to the rest
of the state, Maximo Martinez,
Gadsden Community Health
Council director, told audience
members during a Gadsden
Chamber of Commerce-
sponsored presentation Thursday.
, The` *20'"' percent 'f::'-'ocdol
residents ,:who,, fall below the
poverty level and the 21 percent
who' have insufficient or no
health insurance coverage are at
the root of the problem, he said,
but the Gadsden Community
Health Council hopes to
eliminate this grim scenario
through a proposed
comprehensive primary
healthcare plan for the county's
uninsured and underinsured,
recently drafted and now up for
public review.
"It saddens me when you turn
on the news and hear 'Gadsden
County has this, Gadsden County
has that (health problems).' We
need to do something. We really
need to consider what we're
going to do about this health
disparity," Martinez told the
audience, gathered in an upstairs
gallery at the Gadsden Arts
Center.
The plan would provide
primary care, preventative care,
hospital care, pharmacy services,
dental care and more to those
who qualify for only a $5 co-pay
per office visit. A proposed half-
cent surtax would fund the
program if it gets the okay from
local voters .in a referendum in
November.
Martinez presented the surtax
proposal to the Board of County
Commissioners earlier this

gie healthidare' t boost in
Gadsden County.
month, and commissioners gave
the go ahead to get the initiative
ready to be placed on the
November ballot.
If the surtax passes, it is
expected to bring in $1.3 million
a year to fund the program.
Gadsden County residents
whose income is 200 percent or
less than the federal poverty
level, $40,000 annually for a
family of four, and who do not
receive or are eligible for
Medicaid or Medicare money,
qualify for the program.
An audience member expressed
concerns that those 'who are
eligible for Medicaid and
Medicare are precisely the
people who need the additional
help, but Joe Sharp, a consultant
hired by GCHC who aided in the
presentation Thursday, explained
many "working poor" make too
much money to qualify for
Medicaid or Medicare but not
enough to-pay for healthcare.
The program will be advertised
at various forums in the coming
months and healthcare officials
encourage citizens' input. For
more information on the
program, contact Maximo
Martinez at.558-3628.


Gretna hires consulting firm


By BYRON Spires
Times Staff Writer


The City of Gretna,has made a
bold move to correct several
lingering city issues.
In a special called meeting two
weeks ago the commission voted
4-1 to hire KMR (Knowles,
Marks and Randolph) Consulting
L.L.C. for $72,000. KMR will
work on the city's' state audits
and help correct their Florida
Department of Enviromental
Protection problems. The contract
is for 90 days and will be paid in
three installments starting July 1.
Gretna is currently past-due one
audit, with another audit due. by
September 30. KMR. according
to city manager. will assist the
city in catching up both audits by
the September 30th deadline.
Over the past five years Gretna
has faced a number of problems
with their water and sewage
systems. The FDEP has
continually held the city under
sanctions primarily concerning
the production of sufficient
quantities of water. Those
sanctions have kept the city from
adding any new water connects,


which in turn has stopped growth
in the city.
The releasing of the FDEP
sanctions will allow Gretna to
grow, interim city manager Diane
Formman said.
Gretna's new mayor, Nadine
Smith, seems confident that the
hiring of KMR will open some
new doors for the City of Gretna.
"I'm very optimistic and very
excited that this will allow Gretna
to move in a positive direction,"
Smith said.
The battle to have the sanctions
lifted has been waging now for
several years and the chance that
the end may be near is something
Smith cannot be happier about. "I
have high hopes for this move."
She added that she could not
wait until the consultants were on
the premises and the work was
started.
There had been some
controversy to the issue of hiring
KMR as city attorney Harold
Knowles is a partner in the
consulting firm. Smith said that
Knowles acknowledged his
connection with the firm at the
beginning of the meeting, before
the commission hired KMR.

A free exchange of ideas is necessary for good government and good communities. Constructive Criticism is valued.


As long as we think, we can be better than we are.

Contemplation.



She taught me patience,


generosity, independence.


In the last few weeks before her
death, Dr. Jessie Furlow was
honored publicly by several
organizations. Every honor and
accolade she was given was well
deserved. I was given the privilege
of introducing her and talking about
what she meant to Gadsden County
when she was honored during the
recent Crescent Moon Gala to raise
funds for the Sickle Cell Foundation.
A few weeks prior to that the Big
Bend Hospice Gadsden/Liberty
Team hosted a reception to thank her
for her contributions at the Quincy
Garden Center. And, just last
Tuesday the Board of County
Commissioners named June 20 (of
each year) Dr. Jessie Furlow Day.
She was thanked for her
commitment to the community and
her health care service to the citizens
of Gadsden County during the past
24 years. Monday afternoon, I went
through some old newspapers and
found the August 22, 1982 issue. She
, had just moved to Quincy and was
featured in the "Newsmakers"
section.
In it was a photo of her, with that
signature smile, saying that she
planned to open her practice on
September 1. She said she learned
about Quincy through a medical
recruiting firm. She visited here,
liked it, and decided to make it her


home.
"I'm tired of the hustle and bustle
of the city, so I know I will like it
here. Eventually. I'd like to own
some land and have a house," she
said. She grew up in Memphis, TN,
attended medical school in Rochster,
NY, and medical residency in
Cincinnati, OH. She was ready for a
change and Quincy was definitely
ready for her as much as they needed
her services.
She got to own some land and a
house and that was her sanctuary. As
much work as she'did at her job and
the countless hours she put in as a
volunteer, she needed a retreat. She
liked people but she loved her
privacy. And, with a schedule like
the one she kept up, she needed that
privacy.
I was fortunate to have her as my
friend for the last 20 years. I learned
a lot from her. She was wise beyond
her years in many ways and shared
her knowledge with me. Individuals
learn from almost everyone they
come into contact with on life's
journey. From Jessie, I learned a lot
and it has made me a better person.
From her I learned patience. Sle
had patience with almost everyone.
That patience did not translate into
being a pushover. Although she was
soft-spoken most of the time, you

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.


No fancy parade, but they


heard the music in Mt. Zion!


One Fourth of July Daddy reasoned that
we ought to go back to where he and
Mother grew up and celebrate with the
relatives at Mt Zion.
That went over like a lead balloon with
me, Leon and David Mark. First of all, I
kinda liked going downtown and counting
all the flags, bobbing for apples, playing
chase around the World War I cannon and
eating watermelon til I near 'bout busted.
We had fireworks. And some years we
even had a parade! Plus me and Yogi,
Buddy and Ricky Gene could have "some
more serious fun" if you left us alone all
day in town. "Daddy, could we just stay
home this year and maybe-"
"No, I believe we're going to your
grandmother's"
It wasn't no use to say anything else. I
wasn't the smartest pup in the litter-but
Dad wasn't "suggesting" that we go or
"entertaining any votes" on the subject. He
was "declaring"!
We sat in the back seat and played "I
spy" and "rocks, paper and scissors" on the
long drive over there.
Mt. Zion was a million miles from
nowhere. It was in the middle of nothing.
There was no highway or paved road back
to it. There were two buildings and a
cemetery. One was a church and the other
was a small, one room schoolhouse. You
had to drive through a creek to get there.
And I don't mean over the water. I mean
through it! They haven't gotten around to
building a bridge there til this day!
Dad grew up just down the road going
toward Minor Hill. Mother grew up going
out the other way toward Pulaski. We'd
heard the story a few hundreds times how
they had met at Mt. Zion.....
What kind of Fourth of July can you have
when there are two buildings, no town
square, no World War I cannon, no pals, no
fireworks and precious few places "to get
out of sight" of the grown-ups! The
prospects were slim in deed when we piled
out of that wet '51 Chevrolet.
Granny hugged us so hard her bonnet


twisted sideways. Pa shook our hands,
didn't matter to him how small that hand
was, and looked us right in the eye when he
spoke to us. Uncle Clifford was greeting
everyone with a smile and a kind word.
Aunt Beatrice was in charge of the food.
Uncle Womack was hunkered down over.
under a shade tree, smoking a Camel.
Uncle Hugh was laughing out loud. Aunt
Adell and Ruby Nell were in charge of the
talking. I reckon we were kin to everybody
here!
Jesse Cole White came by to tell us about
a baseball game he and Dad played way
back before the war. Mr. Frank Price
started telling us about the night he and
Daddy lost the money outside the church. It
was "almighty dark" and so they went in
during prayer meeting and took the only
lamp outside to look- Mother didn't let him
finish!
I went off with my cousin Charles. We
were the same age. And cousin J. C. and
Joseph were just a couple of years younger.
And Charles had two little sisters, as did J.
C. and Joseph. I tell you, a couple more
show up and we'd have enough for a ball
game!
Uncle F. D. got us all out on the swinging
foot log over the creek and begin to shake
and rock that thing! Barbara and Martha
fell in the water! Naturally, the rest of us
jumped in to save them! F. D. carried us up
on that big hill behind the cemetery. We
wrestled and fought and rolled each other
down that hill for hours.
F. D. was the uncle that never grew up.
And he had the best ideas.:... Pretty soon
we divided into teams and were throwing
crab apples at each other. They had done
called us to eat twice but we were having
too much fun to notice. Besides, if they
really start to get on us, F. D. will make it
all right.....
'Course, after Martha busted her head and
David cut his arm, we decided we were
getting a tad hungry. We might as well

Winding Roadsp



Dr. Furlow


was called to be a healer.


I first meet Dr. Furlow back in 1987.
It was during one of those times in
your life when everything seemed to
be falling apart at the same time.
Actually it was a bad time for both
my Aunt Odean Hanna and myself.
I've always been close to Aunt
Odeon and it seemed that bad times
befell both of us at about the same
time.
I was going through a tough divorce
(it was tough on me and my two kids)
and my uncle Marcus passed away
suddenly.
Aunt Odeon held up like the trooper
that she always has been, but it was
still a tough time.
They say tragedy flows in threes and
with in a couple of weeks Aunt Odeon
was sick, real sick.
She would end up in the hospital
having emergency abdominal surgery.
Dr. Furlow was the surgeon that
saved Aunt Odeon's life.
I remember standing in the hallway
of the Gadsden Memorial Hospital and
talking with Dr. Furlow. It had been a
close encounter for aunt Odeon and Dr.
Furlow said then that my aunt had a
strong constitution.
She was right about Aunt Odeon, but
it was Dr. Furlow's expertise that had
saved her.
Aunt Odeon made a quick recovery.
It seemed like it was only a few weeks
before she was back to her old self
cooking those good old country

dinners.
Aunt Odeon loved Dr. Furlow and
often talked about how good a job she
did on her and how easy the recovery
had been.
It was good that it happened the way
that it did, because only a month later,
Aunt Odeon would lose her daughter-
in-law to cancer.
So within a period of only four
months, she lost her husband, had
major surgery and lost her daughter-in-
law died. So sometimes thing do come
in threes.
I've talked to Dr. Furlow on several
occasions about my Aunt and her
experiences. About how Dr. Furlow
had saved her life with her quick
thinking and her surgical ability.
Dr. Furlow didn't seem to like a lot
of praise piled on her. She would
always say she had done her job to the
best of her ability.
A thank you was sufficient.
I liked Dr. Furlow's bedside manor,
she truly cared about the well being of
her patients. Those that came in
contact with her over the years can
attest to that.
She saw everyone with the same
light, the light of healing.
I believe some people are called to a
profession and I believe Dr. Furlow
was called to be a healer.

Special Olympics loses

a very good friend

in Dr. Furlow

Dear Editor:
Special Olympics Gadsden County lost a good friend
this weekend. Dr. Jesse Furlow was an outstanding
individual. She provided hundreds of physical to the
athletes of Gadsden Csounty. Without her help, many
athletes would not be able to participate.
She was a role model for the young people and the
medical community of this area. She was a soft-spoken
black woman who strongly supported this community.
If it involved Gadsden County, you knew she was there
(hospice, Habitat for Humanity, Optimist Club, Special
Olympics, a mentor to many, etc.).
We were blessed to know her. I am blessed to know
her as a friend. We will miss her.
I pray that there will be people in the community that
.were touched by her that will step up to take on some of
her roles. Special Olympics needs someone to help with
the physical.
Sincerely,
Margaret Pinson
County Coordinator,
Special Olympics Gadsden County

A great woman

. I didn't know Dr. Furlow
personally, nor did I know her as a
patient.
I only had the
chance o10
shake her hand
and accept
introduction, '
twice. That v.s
enough to knov. I .
was in the
presence of a.
very gracious,
caring, loving and intelligent
woman.
Then over the course of the next
couple of years I learned of her
work and I knew I had met a truly
great woman. It seemed the praise
never stopped, and that was only
because she never stopped giving.
Not even when her health was
telling her it was time to stop.
Her patients might describe her
in much the same words as those
patients of the well-known TV
"doctor", Dr. Marcus Welby. A
couple of differences, of course.
Dr. Welby was white. And male.
And practiced in a setting in which
it was easy to tell doctor from
nurse because almost all doctors
were white and male, and nurses
were almost always female.
Minorities, if they existed at all,
usually filled supporting roles.
Dr. Furlow busted that stereotype
wide open. Thank God. Because
of her hard work and dedication to
this community we live in a better
place. I can think of no better role
model, for the kids of Gadsden
County especially, than Dr. Jessie
Furlow...if not to be a doctor, then
to be a good and caring .person
who does all he can to improve the
lives he touches.
The phrase that comes to my
mind is one that implies a
familiarity I'm not comfortable
with and I mean no disrespect. But
our kids would do well to ignore
"Be Like Mike" and instead
resolve to "Be Like Jessie".
That would be the greatest
legacy to a truly great woman.

New faces...
There are a couple of new faces
at The Gadsden County Times I'd
like to introduce you to.
Chris Costa joins our staff as an
advertising sales representative.
Chris comes to Gadsden County
from Indiana where he marketed a
"brewed alcoholic beverage
product" after getting a degree in
marketing from Indiana State
University. That's the same school
that produced Larry Bird, by the
way.
He's already at work on a couple
of new projects for us and is
anxious to meet local business
owners and managers so he can
put his marketing skills to work.
Leslie Roberts will be joining
our news staff July 1.
Leslie lives just south of Quincy
in the Lake Talquin area with her
husband, son and horses.
She has spent the past few years
writing stories on a free-lance
basis for The Tallahassee
Democrat and several state and
regional magazines.
She spent a year as editor of The
Apalachicola Times after moving
to the Big Bend Area from Lake
City, where she was features editor
and education reporter.
She began her journalism career
in the mountains of East
Tennessee where she was a
reporter for first a weekly, then the


daily Mountain Press in
Sevierville.
We've also had the good fortune
to have Brian Dekle with us for the
summer. The Cairo, GA native is a
journalism student at The
University of Wyoming.

6 The Gadsden County Times June 29, 2006


2 charged with thefts from


Midway construction sites


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor


Thieves are stealing everything in Midway that
isn't nailed down and some stuff that is nailed clown
from construction sites, according to Lt. Larry
Smith, of the Gadsden County Sheriff's Office
Property Crime Unit.
Shortly after one family closed on a home in
Midway several weeks ago, thieves broke into the
home, took the stove that was still in the box then
disconnected the new refrigerator and took that, too.
The recent rash of burglaries in Midway includes
everything from appliances in, homes under
construction to harmners and nails belonging
carpenters.
A dent was made Monday, Smith said, with the
arrest of 52-year-old McArthur Albert and 19-year-
old Joseph Green, Jr. The pair was charged in
connection with thefts in the Rustling Pines and
Midway Forest subdivisions.


Albert was charged with one count of grand theft
and two counts of dealing in stolen property. Tips
led authorities to his 541 Forest Road home. There
they found a Haulmark trailer which was reported
stolen from a construction site in the Midway area.
His bond was set for $25,000.
"When the trailer was taken it had about $7,400
worth of carpenter's tools. When we found it, it was
empty," Smith said.
Green was charged with one count of dealing in
stolen property, one count of defrauding a
pawnbroker and one count of petit theft. Green is
alleged to have pawned a Whirlpool microwave,
valued at $400. His bond was set for $21,000.
For the last month, the property crimes unit has
been working almost exclusively in Midway. "We
have other suspects we will be arresting in the future
in connection with these crimes," Smith said.
Anyone with information on this or other
burglaries in the Midway area is asked to call Lt.
Smith at 875-8834.


Gretna man faces drug charge


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

A Gadsden County man, 28-year-old Anthony
Lashay Barkley, was arrested last week in
Tallahassee as he allegedly was about to deliver
powder cocaine to an unknown buyer. Barkley, who
was out on bond in Gadsden County on an unrelated
drug charge, was arrested when agents were given a
tip that he was at it again.
Agents followed Barkley to a shopping center
parking lot on Ocala Road in Tallahassee.
Authorities watched as Barkley went into the trunk
of his vehicle and then went to a waiting vehicle.
Barkley and the driver of the other vehicle were


arrested and both vehicles were seized. Eighty-nine
grams of cocaine were recovered from Barkley's
vehicle.
Barkley is currently in the Leon County Jail
without bond for trafficking, with a hold due to
revocation of bond from Gadsden County. Agents
are expected to file federal drug charges on Barkley.
In addition to the Gadsden County Sheriff's Office
Vice & Narcotics unit, agents from the Florida
Department of Law Enforcement Drug Unit, and the
Leon County Sheriffs Office Vice & Narcotics Unit
assisted.
Anyone with information on illegal drug activity is
asked to call Lt. Jim Corder at 850-875-8847 or
850-395-4138.

Eugene Lamb, in the background, watches as summer camp kids enjoy one of the many games
available at the community center


Lamb Community Center is


beehive of activity in Midway


By BYRON SPIRES
Times Staff Writer
The Eugene Lamb Jr. Community Park in Midway
is a beehive of activity this summer, with about 30
children attending a summer day camp there
everyday.
"This has been a great summer for these kids,"
Stephanie Tolbert, director of the summer camp,
said.
Each day is filled with activities including softball
and volleyball, and tetherball, a sport new to many
campers. "I've introduced tether ball to these kids
and they love it," Tolbert said.
The day is divided between outside activities and
inside activities including time on the computer.
"We have a basic class on computers and then allow
the kids to use what they have learned," Tolbert
explained.
Tolbert, who has 31 years of recreation
experience, is working on a special education degree
at FAMU. She is currently the assistant girls'
basketball coach with Leon High School, where she
is also an instructional aide.
* Tolbert has plenty of help this summer from a full
Staff of counselors including Camille Knight, Kia
,Gaston, Nitka Fryson and William Josey.
I "My staff has done a wonderful job keeping these
kids involved in all of the activities here at the
,center. They are-great," Tolbert said.
' A park expansion is currently underway, as well,
in addition to the summer program.
'.'We are working real hard to get everything ready
-for the kids," Eugene Lamb Jr., district two county
:commissioner, said. "We should have the
,little league baseball field completed in the next few


weeks."
The field has a movable fence, which will allow
the area to become a football and soccer field as
well, Lamb said.
It is not just the playing area that is being
renovated. Lex Thompson paved the park's parking
lot and CDS Manufacturing of Midway provided the
car blocks.
The Eugene Lamb Jr. Foundation has been
instrumental in coordinating the work at the
Midway Park.
Lamb's son, Brian, established the foundation in
honor of his father after the city of Midway named
the park for his dad.
Lamb's wife, Deloris, is the president of the
foundation, and his daughter, Rolanda, is the vice-
president.
Over the last year the foundation has secured
nearly $20,000 in donations, which have been used
to renovate the park and the community center.
In addition to the money the foundation has raised,
the Florida Department of Corrections has donated
computers and Pepper Ghaziniby, owner of Premier
Builders, donated chain link fencing.
The city of Tallahassee Recreation Department has
also been instrumental in helping with the park,
Lamb said.
Lamb added several thousand dollars have been
spent and donated by the foundation and V.K.
Nursery.
"This is really turning into a beautiful place for the
citizens of Midway to enjoy," Lamb said.
The future looks bright for the park as well. Ahead
will be more renovations and hopefully year-round
recreation activities, Lamb said.

Celebrate Freedom's

Second Annual

Patriotic 1lusical


On July I, 2006 at 6:00 p.m. at the Quincy Music Theatre, Celebrate Freedom
will present a Patriotic Musical entitled 'We The People"
Play scripts by Pat Cook, Music and Lyrics by Bill Francoeur.

The production presents the Preamble to the Constitution in several vignettes.
The play is an entertaining history lesson leaving a lasting impression.
You will laugh, cry and go away with a clear understanding of our
Constitution and the foundations on which our freedom is built.

Celebrate Freedom's goal is to present a patriotic musical and other

America, and express appreciation for Veterans, Fire Fighters and Law
Enforcement Officers.

On July 4, 176, we claimed our independence from Great Britain and
Democracy was born. Every day thousands leave their homeland to come
to the "land of the free and the home of the brave" so they can begin their
American Dream.

The United States is truly a diverse nation made up of dynamic people. On
July 4, Americans will celebrate Independence Day with barbecues, picnics,
and family gatherings. Celebrate Freedom is asking all citizens of the county
and surrounding areas to focus on the "true meaning" of Independence Day.

Cast participating in the play will be students from Gadsden and Leon
counties and many more. Presiding will be the Honorable Derrick Elias,
Quincy city commissioner.

Donations for this production are $6.00 adults and $3.00 students (children
6 and under free). Tickets can be purchased at the following locations:
Brown's Variety Shop and Padgett's Jewelers in Quincy.

Veterans, Fire Fighters and Law Enforcement officers please come dressed in
your uniforms.

Adam Reep gave the interview
committee no choice but to hire
the former Robert F. Munroe
football player as the school's
new head football coach.
In his interview, the former

"discipline" to describe what he,
wants to bring back to the
Munroe program.

All State player and was runner
up to Class A Mr. Football for
Florida in 2002. After high
school, Reep spent three seasons

Reep played for three different,
but successful, coaches at
Munroe, Joey Edwards (retired),
Blair Armstrong (Peachtree


Ridge High School-Suwanee) and
Scott Klees (head coach Wakulla

two district championships with
Reep as a player.
"I plan to use the training I
received from my excellent

Munroe Football and want our
players to return to playing that
kind of football, which to me
means, a tough, hard-fought style
of football. It may be a small
roster of Bobcat players, but they

Big Fish was Frank Gorden with

The Lake City Bass Club fished
out here with 16 boats and would
you believe Michael Bundy
tipped the scales at 29 lbs. of

bass to win. Their big fish was
8.15. They don't fish this lake
but once a year. That was
fantastic in 98 degree weather.
Mrs. Toni-Scott of the Talquin

with 15.87 and their big fish was

Bream was the second or 3rd

were taken on crickets and beetle

Now the question that I ask is
why are we seeing slab Speckle

something we needed to do,"
Reginald James, Gadsden County
School Superintendent, said
Wednesday morning in a phone
interview.
I'm pleased the process is over,
and I think everyone is happy
with it, and it keeps that good
momentum going."
Paul Burdette, though less
enthusiastic, concurred.
"I think, for Gadsden County
(with its financial problems), it's
a decent raise," Burdette,
executive director for Big Bend
Service Unit and lead negotiator
for the teacher's union, said
Wednesday morning.
The teacher contract agreement
not only provides for the raise,
but also better health and dental
coverage for which the board
says they will pick up the tab -
according to Burdette, guaranteed
planning time during the school
day, and percentage-based
supplement pay for coaches, club
sponsors and other professionals
involved in extracurricular
activities.
Bus drivers, cafeteria workers
and other support staff haven't
fared as well as teachers so far in
the bargaining process, as no
agreement has yet been reached
regarding their contracts for next
year.
Another bargaining session for
support staff is scheduled for July
12, and right now their raise
proposal is up to two percent.
Burdette says he feels Rocky
Pace,. the school board's lead
negotiator, is being overly
cautious by putting out the
modest figure, and adds he
expects the board will find more
money left over for support staff
once school financial people
review the impact teacher raises
will have on the budget.
"They're the people who see
the kids first and last during the
school day," Burdette said of
support staff. "Our bus drivers
are the first people to see kids
during the day, followed by
cafeteria workers at breakfast and
parapros getting classes ready for
teachers. They're very important
people."
Ratification ballots will be
mailed out within the next two
weeks and Burdette says the
deadline for teachers to return
them to the Big Bend Service
Unit is July 19. Officials will
count the ballots the following
day and will announce the results
at the July 25 regular school
board meeting.

her: humble, kind, and caring
heart.
Only a month ago she was
awarded the "Caring Heart"
award by Carmen and Dexter
Martin during the Sickle Cell
Gala to raise money for research
and help for those who locally
suffer from the disease.
"I cannot think of a more
deserving person than Dr.
Furlow. She has always had the
Gadsden County community at
heart," said Rep. Curtis
Richardson.
Local businessman Craig
McMillan who is chairman of
Gadsden Hospital, Inc. where Dr.
Furlow served until her death,
called her a sweetheart. "She
was my personal physician when
she first came to Quincy. She
was a bridge in this community
between blacks and whites," he
said
"She was such a giving person.
If she was involved in something,
she gave it
everything she had. I know it
must have been hard for her to
come to the board meetings, but
she came. That's the kind of
person she was," McMillan said.
She was a medical doctor who
served as vice president of North
Florida Medical Centers and was
the medical director at Gadsden
Medical Center. For many years
she served as medical director for
Big Bend Hospice in Gadsden
and Liberty counties. She
brought her medical expertise to
the FSU Board of Trustees, too.
Dr. Alma Littles, Quincy
native and associate dean of
adacemic affairs at the medical
school, said Dr. Furlow
understood the perspective of
medical students and helped
shape the medical school when it
was founded in 2000.
"Physicians in this area have a
great challenge. You couldn't
find a sweeter, more collegial
individual. She was committed to
her patients and her community,"
Little said.
She held memberships in
several professional
organizations, including but not
limited to the National Medical
Association, Florida Medical
Association, William J. Gunn
Medical Society, and Capital
Medical Society. She volunteered
many hours with the American
Cancer Societ ron the state and
local levels, and served the
community by working with the
Healthy Start Coalition. She was


very instrumental in working
with Gadsden Citizens For
Healthy babies to reduce the
infant mortality rate in the
county.
She was a member of Gadsden
(FL) Alumnae Chapter of Delta
Sigma Theta Sorority, charter
member and past president of the
Gadsden County Chapter of the
National Hook-Up of Black
Women, Gadsden Arts Center,
Pilot Club of Quincy, The Riley
House, The LINKS, Chamber of
Commerce, National Association
of University Women, NAACP,
Habitat For Humanity, and
others.
She received a B.S. Degree
from Lane College in Jackson,
Tennessee and her medical
degree from the University of
Rochester. Her residency was
completed the Univerity of
Cincinnati.
She is survived by her parents,
Ellis and Georgia Gragg and two
sisters, Katherine Clemons and
Patty Boyd.
The funeral will be held today
at 11 a.m. at the A.O. Shelfer
National Guard Armory on Pat
Thomas Parkway in .Quincy with
interment at Sunnvale Cemetery.

Board honors 32


retiring teachers


More than 1,000
years of experience

to leave district
By Brian Dekle
Times Intern

At Tuesday night's regular
school board meeting the
Gadsden County School Board
honored 32 retiring teachers and
support staff, who represent over
1,000 years of combined
experience in education.
Shaia Beckwith, Gadsden
schools public information
officer, and board members
presented the retirees with
plaques recognizing them for
their years of service.
The board also heard a report
from Ajax Building, Inc. about
the progress of West Gadsden
High School. Company officials
showed aerial photos of the site,
pointing out the foundation laid
for the caferia, new footing for
the gymnasium and other
recently-constructed items.
The WGHS job superintendent
said construction is "on schedule"
and is expected to be completed
in time for the 2007-2008 school
term.
In other business Tuesday night:
*Dr. Diana Decker, Gadsden
school personnel director,
explained 25 Gadsden County
paraprofessionals will be
terminated for the upcoming


school term because their jobs are
no longer needed in order to
comply with No Child Left
Behind requirements. Decker said
the board has given the axed
parapros ample notice of their
termination.
*Deferred action on approval of
a bid for bread in school
cafeterias. Board Vice Chairman
Issac Simmons expressed
concerns that the bid
documentation provided to the
board only listed one company as
having placed a bid, instead of
the required three. Action was
deferred until the board can be
assure that three bids for bread
were sent out.
*Deferred action to approve
Carter-Parramore Academy's
request to join the Florida High
School Athletic Association.
Board members said they are
supportive of Carter-Parramore
starting athletic programs, but
need to review more closely the
impact it will have on students
before making a final decision.
The board encouraged the school
to go ahead with the application
process, however, pending final
approval by the board.

12 The Gadsden County Times June 29,2006


Farmers get at least
$45,000 a year
in fencing funds

by Brian Dekle
Times Intern

Rebuilding the old family farm
may seem a financially and
physically daunting task for a
middle-aged nurse new to
farming, but that's exactly what a
Mt. Pleasant woman is doing
with a big helping hand from the
USDA.
Since 1999, Roseann Sadler, a
nurse with Florida State Hospital,
has worked to restore a large
piece of her family history a
99-acre cattle farm operated by
her mother and ancestors
generations before.
Week after week the single
mother set aside money from her
modest paycheck to purchase
posts and fencewire, slowly
piecing together her dream of
following in her mother's
footsteps and operating a cattle
farm with only the help of her
young daughter, Jennifer.
For a new, inexperienced
farmer, getting things back to
working order for the first time in
decades was overwhelming.
Sadler knew few technical details
about cattle farming and was
spending a sizeable chunk of her
income on fencing, troughs and
other farm necessities.
Seeking advice for her
dilemma, she visited the local
Farm Service Agency (FSA).
Officials there told her to talk to
Crenel Francis, local resource
conservationist for the USDA
Natural Resources Conservation
Service (NRCS).
Francis offered advice on
farming techniques and 'got
Sadler involved in NRSA's
Environmental Quality Incentives
Program (EQIP), a federally-
sponsored program that pays
farmers 50 to 75' percent of
materials costs to practice
environmentally-friendly
agriculture techniques.
The program, Sadler says, has
made the arduous task of getting
her farm up and running
significantly more bearable .in
mind and on the purse.
Sadler expressed an interest in
rotational grazing, the practice of
moving cattle to different fenced
off areas of a pasture periodically
to allow grass to recover and thus
provide better health for both the
pasture and the cattle.
Because rotational grazing is an
environmentally-friendly practice
that helps to protect plant life
from over-consumption, wetlands
from being eroded by cattle
traffic and more, the EQIP
program footed the bill for more
than half of Sadler's new fencing,
and will eventually finance
pipelines and water troughs on
her land as the project develops.
"I wouldn't have that fence
right there today if it were not for
Mr. Francis. I was so happy with
Mr. Francis (and his secretary).
He walked me right through it
(the application process), going
through everything step by step.
It went so smoothly because
Crenell was right there and
worked with me along the way,"
Sadler said.
"It's all new to me, so I'd call
and ask 'am I supposed to do it
this way?' They were always so
polite, respectful and easy-going.
It helped me because as a single
person I don't have
'megabucks."'
Under the provisions of the
program, NRCS awards funds
only after a project is completed.
For instance, Sadler must first
install pipeline before the
government will reimburse her
for around 50 percent of the cost


Mt. Pleasant cattle farmer Roseann Sadler (second from left)
stands next to a fence on her farm that was partly funded by the
NRCS's Environmental Quality Incentives Program. Pictured, l-r,

member; Jennifer Sadler, Roseann's daughter.


of materials.
Fencing and rotational grazing
costs aren't the only farm
practices NRCS will lend a
financial helping hand with, and
Sadler isn't the only local farmer
taking advantage of EQIP's
beneficial hand-outs.
About 37 Gadsden County
farmers participate in the
program, and Francis said more
federal money is available to
others who have not yet hopped
onboard, no matter what their
agricultural forte.
Farmers seeking to improve
grazeland, croplands and
nurseries, control erosion and
more may all be eligible for EQIP
benefits, and Francis encourages
locals to get involved.
Each year the USDA gives the
Gadsden County NRCS a
minimum of $45,000 to be
distributed to local farmers, and
this figure is often much higher,
such as 'the case last year when
the agency awarded $112,000 to
Gadsden EQIP participants.
Those interested must first
apply and meet certain guidelines
before the government will hand
out funds. For instance, the
USDA will not award money for
existing fences, wells, pipelines,
etc. These items must be built
after entering the program and
must be up to par with
government standards.
Also, the NRSA works closely
with the Gadsden Soil and Water
Conservation District (GSWCD)
board of supervisors to determine
who has priority on available
funds. The GSWCD has decided
that projects that control erosion
get EQIP money first, followed
by water quality projects and
plant health projects.
For more information on EQIP,
contact Crenel Francis at 850-
627-6355, extension 3, or visit
www.nrcs.usda.gov.

No Terrorist

I knew it wouldn't be long before the government made African-Americans the
centerpiece of the global war on terrorism. As if the mighty God above gave this
government the authority to incarcerate/kill anyone that it thinks is a terrorist
and allow those it thinks not a free pass. Last week the FBI finally stooped to the
lowest of the low and tied seven African-Americans unjustly to this never ending
war on terrorism. Now that the war is becoming more and more unpopular, are
we to believe that African-Americans all of a sudden decided its time to start
blowing up buildings because of the lack of popularity for the war. This is absurd
,and race baiting and it's lowest. Fellow citizens it is an undisputed fact, that there
are two things for sure that African-Americans do not tamper with, bombs and
snakes. This nation will fare better if it looks in the mirror at its own reflection
and history and it will show what a home grown terrorist looks like. When the
facts find their way from underneath the dirty laundry of this case one can rest
assure that the undercover agent that led these men's too water, this is called
entrapment for political gain. The late Johnny Cochran once said, "You may never
commit a crime, but that doesn't mean you won't be accused of one", boy was-
n't he right. The only thing these men are guilty of is exercising their Freedom of

Speech. With billions spent on homeland security, all our government can muster
in return is seven poor-broke African-Americans. We the people should be
demanding a refund from our government. It is my desire that we as a nation of
people do not start down this slippery slope again because no one will benefit
from it. By the way one must ask himself what evidence was in the possession of
these men when law enforcement encountered them, (Nothing). Again I repeat
African-Americans do not tamper with bombs and snakes. Remember this is a
Republican Election year so the focus must be taken off the war and placed on
anyone or group that would make them look better. Even if these men could have
hustles (which I doubt) $50 thousand dollars out of an undercover agent they
probably was going to plow their way to down town Miami and have themselves
a party.

Thanks for your encouraging words and spiritual support.

Summer reading, math gives


students a boost and fun


By Brian Dekle
Times Intern
A local education program designed to give
struggling students a boost is getting results while
students have fun, program officials say.
Students in the Gadsden County 21st Century
Program practice reading and math, create arts and
crafts, learn fundamentals of photography, engage in
exercise and wellness, and travel to educational
locales throughout Georgia and Florida. The
activities are aimed at bringing cultural awareness
and lending a helping hand primarily to students
scoring below grade level on the Florida
Comprehensive Assesment Test (FCAT).
"The first benefit, of course, is the (21st Century)
students have extra time to get ready for the FCAT.
They also get to go on field trips, all of which have
an educational background," Marshall Williams,
program director, said. The Martin Luther King Jr.
Center in Atlanta, the Jacksonville Zoo, Silver
Springs and Wild Water in Ocala and the Florida
Historical Museum are among the numerous trips
21st Century students have taken. Students also visit
colleges so they can see "what they want to do later
on in life," Williams added.
So far results of the year-round program have been
promising. Last year, Williams said, 75 percent of
21st Century students showed gains on the FCAT
and 90 percent were promoted to the next grade.
Site directors operate the program at several
schools in Gadsden County, and it is open to
students in grades three through 12. One hundred
Gadsden students may sign up at each site, but
program officials target students who score at level
one or level two (below grade level) on the FCAT
and students from low-income families. Higher
scoring students may sign up if slots are left over,
however.
The program runs every month of the year except
July for four weeks, five days a week, from 8 a.m.
to 2 p.m. during the summer and 3 to 6 p.m. during

itself are provided free of charge, thanks to a federal
grant overseen by the Florida Department of
Education.
Williams encourages parents to get students
involved in the program. For more information or to

best friends.
I have one more short story
about Dr. Furlow that sums up
the kind of person she was.
Several years ago there was
a women's conference held at
the hospital. I was there as a
reporter to cover the
conference and Dr. Furlow
said something at that
conference that has stuck with
me all of these years.
She was drawn to tears about
the way so many grants come
to this county and use the
health issues here to pad their
numbers and get money.
"I'm tired of it," I remember
her saying. She went on to say
that it was wrong to take
advantage of the people in
Gadsden County. It was
wrong she said, because the
people who needed the help
the most were only some
number on a grant. The actual
help never came or if it did
make it here it was only short
lived.
Dr. Furlow had no problem
standing up for what she felt
strongly about and using
Gadsden County for a gain
was one of those issues.
She was right.
We will miss Dr. Furlow a
lot. Probably a lot more that
we will ever realize.

You know, Fourth of July at
Mt. Zion ain't all that bad!
I stood on the hill to catch my
breath and looked out over that
cemetery and those two old
buildings. It was quite a scefie!
One that has brought me back to
that place They were pretty
ordinary folks if you were going
to compare them to the world's
standards. But let me tell you
something, they had their red,
white and blue out and were
celebrating like the great
Americans that they were! They
had pride you couldn't start to
understand! Pride in God and
country and family and each
other.
They might not have been in
Philadelphia in 1776 when it
began....but they had relatives
there! They might not a'had a
fancy parade with all the
trimmings....but believe you me-
they heard the music. They didn't
need a dressed up speaker to
remind them of our heritage-they
had stormed ashore at Normandy,
been wounded in the Battle of the
Bulge, landed with the first wave
of troops before MacArthur in the
Philippines, kept the home fires
burning.......
They celebrated with a passion
of folks who understand and
appreciate what they have. How
incredibly fortunate we are to be
kin to such people!
You know, celebrating the
Fourth of July ain't got nothing,
to do with where you are! Those
old folks up at Mt. Zion, and
thousands just like them all over
America, have been teaching us
how to "live it" correctly since
the day we were born.....they are
the blessing of this great nation!

Happy Fourth To You,

Contemplation
Continued from Page 4

didn't want to get her upset.
"There is a time and place
for everything," she'd tell
me.
The word generous
,described her too. She was
generous most of all with her
time and talent. If Jessie
Furlow belonged to an
organization, she was an
active member. She held
offices in various
organizations. I'm not
talking about an office that
required little effort and
work, she was president, vice
president, and secretary. She
held offices that required
commitment and elbow
grease.
She often pulled me right
along with her. On a couple
of occasions I declined her
offer to join another
organization, and she invited
to along "just to see what
we're doing." She always
drove to these meetings. I told
her it was so I couldn't leave
until she left. On the way
home, she asked me if I liked
the organization. I didn't
have to answer. "I knew you
would like it once you saw
the work we're doing," she
would say.
The list of organizations to
which she belonged is long
and I still marvel at how she
had the time to do all of the
things she did and still had
the time to see patients.
Most' of the e-mails I got
from her were sent around 5
a.m. which meant she was up
and doing things before she
made rounds daily.
Over the years we traveled
to meetings around the
country. She was great to
travel with because we both
liked to shop out of town.
She, more than I, just liked
to shop. Also she, more than
I, went to all of the sessions
at those conferences. They
couldn't always count on
me, but they could count on
Jessie. When everyone else
decided to skip those boring
afternoon session on the last
day, Jessie always went to
represent.
She shared some
Thanksgiving and Christmas
dinners with me and my


family, we like to feed
people. Most holidays,
however, she spent at the
hospital in the emergency
room. When she couldn't
come to dinner, I would pack
up dinner and take it to her
because she was caring for
those who needed her,
holiday or not.
When her health begin to
decline she still tried to
maintain that schedule. I
knew that was what she
wanted to do, she had to
keep herself busy, that was
her personality. She didn't
like people fussing over her
because she was fiercely
independent. She always
wanted to do for other
people.
She was known to cry if
you praised her in public.
Like last week when she
said, "I don't know if I
deserve this honor" she was
humble and wiped tears of
gratitude away. I, like
anyone who has ever crossed
her path, know that she
deserved every honor she got
and more.
She touched so many lives
in Gadsden County in a
positive way. I will miss her,
but I have the memories of
many good times.

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 bnade 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

You may not be

able to beat the

heat, but you can
live with it.
by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
There is no way to beat the heat, but there
are ways to live with it. It might seem like
it, but this summer has not even reached a
record high temperature.
According to the National Weather
Service, cope with the heat by staying
away from activities that will require you
to overexert yourself in the afternoon, and
by limiting activities to the morning when it
is cooler. Take frequent breaks if you are
outside and drink lots of water.
The City of Quincy has partnered with
the Capital Area Community Action
Agency to offer financial assistance to
people with high utility bills during this
time, confirmed City Manager Bill Bogan.
This year may seem a lot hotter because
of the lack of rainfall. Normally, rain. will
keep temperatures down, but with the area
several inches below normal the perception
it there.
In truth, the average rainfall for June is
6.92 inches. Last year, likely due to the
active hurricane season, the rainfall was
8.65 inches.
Added to that the absence of afternoon
thundershowers and it feels like an oven.


Last week .. -
when the
temperatures
hovered around
the mid 90s, 4
people went
inside ands

flashing lights or fail to move to the next lane when
emergency vehicles are pulled along the roadside. "It's the
law and hopefully the campaign will make people pay W
attention he said.

draw horns on it or do other things, you know how people
are with graffiti," he said.
His mother, Betty Walker of Midway, was the first family
member to notice the 2- by 5-inch decals plastered to gas
pumps. "I really didn't tell anyone in my family about it.
My mother was pretty excited about it," said the soft-
spoken Walker.
Pat Faircloth said quite a few people have called the EMS-1I

B4 The Gadsden County Times June 29,2006


The Fourth of July, also known as independence Day in countries other than the United States, is the W anniversary of the _J
adoption of the Declaration of Independence. It was on July 4, 1776 that the new United States Congress adopted the DeclarationW of
Independence, declaring that the thirteen colonies were now an independent nation, the United States of America. The colonists wanted
freedom from laws passed by the English government that they felt were unfair, especially tax laws. Revolting against a tax on tea, a
group of colonist threw around 350 crates of tea from three British East India Company ships into Boston Harbor on December 1773.
Disguised as Native Americans, the group known as the 'Sons of Liberty' carried out the act that is known today as the Boston Tea Party.
The British Government responded to the revolt by passing laws that increased the royal control of the colony of Massachusetts as well
as closing the port of Boston. The other colonies rallied together in support of the Bostonians. Colonial committees decided to convene
the First Continental Congress in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in September of 1774. The first Congress demanded that Britain repeal
all of the unfair laws they had passed since 1763 and they called for a colonial boycott of British goods. The War for Independence began on April 19, 1775 when English
soldiers, known as Redcoats, clashed with a Massachusetts militia group and eight Americans were killed. During the Second Continental Congress, which convened in
May of 1775, the colonial leaders adopted the position that Americans would rather die free men, than live as slaves, and would take up arms against the United Kingdom.
The young American country had a long battle for freedom, and thus the new United States of America and England went to war against each other. The Revolutionary
War formally ended with the Peace of Paris treaty; signed on September 3, 1783. America won its independence.
Today there are many traditions associated with the Fourth of July. Picnics, barbeques, and family gatherings are very common. Most businesses are closed,
as are all federal and state offices, and all public schools. Firework displays are popular and are done by most all cities. Families in many states are allowed to
use smaller fireworks from home. Some of the best fireworks in the world are set off to celebrate Independence Day. 1/ f )

first to sign the Declaration of Indepen-

signing it first, but it was also the largest
on the document So if someone ever

About Face students run businesses, develop budgets and more


by Brian Dekle
Times Intern

While many Gadsden County
children are playing video games,
watching television or just
generally being lazy this summer,
one group of local students is
busy running businesses,
developing budgets and preparing
for next year's school classes.
For twelve days in June from
8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., 56
Operation About Face students
learn academic, life and work
experience skills in both
classroom and hands-on settings
at the Quincy National Guard
Armory, where the program is
housed.
The program, open to students
between the ages of 13 and 17
whose families receive assistance
from the Department of Children
and Families, is more than just


summer school, however. In fact,
participants are paid $25 a day as
an incentive to come and actively
engage in the material.
"It's (the program) in a
classroom setting but it is more
like a job. There are certain rules
and dress code the students must
abide by, and it's not for
everyone," Lia Wingate, Quincy
About Face site one manager,
said, adding pay can be docked
for absences and tardies.
"The biggest thing that sets our
program aside is that all
curriculum is reality-based,
interactive and hands-on. There's
not just learning and teaching, but
application on site," Maurice
Herring, Florida About Face
program manager, added.
The kids we service are
receiving benefits, and we are
trying to break the welfare cycle
by telling them there are other


options besides having to depend
on the state of Florida (for
money)."
One of those "options" may be
starting a business, a skill About
Face students learn through a
computerized business-simulation
game. Students break up into
small groups and create an
enterprise, deciding what
products they will sell, company
names and logos or slogans.
The students must consider real-
life variables in the game such as
raw materials costs, labor,
advertising and more. Simulated
businesses go head-to-head, and
whichever one turns the most
profit wins.
"I learned that you have to look
at prices to see whether you need
to go a little higher or a little
lower to sell (your product) and
not go in debt," Audrey Unaka,
rising high school junior and


About Face participant, said of
her experience with the business
simulation. Unaka's company,
Game Warehouse, sells
PlayStation Portable game units,
CDs, phones, radios and more.
Students also learn skills useful
for home money management,
such as how to develop a budget,
how to write checks and balance
checkbooks, the importance of
insurance, how to build a line of
credit and more. Many students
absorb these skills and carry them
over into their own homes,
Wingate said. In fact, she added,
a parent of an About Face student
told her that her 15-year-old son
taught her how to make a budget
for their household.
Students also take classes in
computer literacy, hear speakers
and work with mentors at the
program. Upon completion,
students must demonstrate


competency in order to graduate,
which does not seem to be a
problem as no one has ever failed
the local program, according to
Herring.
Most students come out of the
program with a better sense of
teamwork and responsibility,
according to LaTonya Rollinson,
Quincy About Face site two
manager.
"They develop a true sense of
responsibility, as well as better
self esteem and self worth. They
feel they are important at what
they do, even though some are
not that academically sharp," she
said.
"It (About Face) teaches you
life management skills. It
prepares you for life and how to
manage your bills, money and
save," Unaka said.
"It lets you communicate with
other kids, learning what they like


to do, and you see that you have
other people you can get along
with," Tonica McDonald, rising
junior and About Face
participant, concurred.
Beginning next year, About
Face will be conducted year
round, thanks to funding secured
by Rep. Curtis Richardson. This
will make Quincy's program one
of only eight year-round
programs in Florida. During the
school year, About Face classes
will be held twice a week after
school.
Over 300 Gadsden County
children have been served since
the program began locally 10
years ago. About Face began in
Florida and has now spread to
several other states around the
country. The program is
sponsored by Paxen and the
National Guard.

Gadsden students "catch the reading wave"


by Brian Dekle
Times Intern

School may be out, but Gadsden
County students are still "riding
the reading wave" over the
summer.
All Gadsden County public
school students are required to
read a certain number of books,
depending on grade level, and
write book reports this summer as
part of the district's new
"summer reading wave" program.
The program, implemented two
years ago by School
Superintendent Reginald James,
is designed to help Gadsden
students, many of whom read
below grade level, maintain
reading progress made in the
previous school term so they
don't have to play catch up in the
fall.
Research shows summer
reading consistently relates to
higher academic gains, part of the
reason for implementing the


Gainous receives

scholarship to

Keiser College
Lacy Gainous,18, has been
awarded a full two-year tuition
scholarship to Keiser College in
Tallahassee where she will
pursue an Associate of Arts
degree .in Graphic Design. She
graduated from Crystal River


program, school officials say.
"In my opinion, reading is the
most important skill kids need to
succeed in school. If they can
comprehend and read well, it will
carry over into them being a good
student. Reading is essential, and
as superintendent, I think students
need to continue to read over the
summer, that's why I
implemented the summer reading
program (two years ago)," James
said.
"You know if you eat more over
the summer, you grow a little.
We hope that if they (students)
read over the summer, they'll
grow a little in reading," Sonja
Bridges, Gadsden County schools
media coordinator, added.
Students choose books to read
from a grade cluster-specific list
sent home at the beginning of the
summer and available on the
local school district's website,
www.gcps.kl2.fl.us/. County
media specialists compiled the
list last year, considering books


High School in Dunnellon in May
and will begin classes at Keiser
College in August.
Lacy's acceptance at Keiser will
also serve as a reunion with her
mother and brother in Havana -
after a ten year separation as she
begins her college career at the
same college she visited as a
child while her mother was
attending computer programming
classes. "I am so proud of her, I
thought I was good at computers


recommended by the American
Library Association and the
Florida Department of Education.
Students in grades K through
two are required to read five
books over the summer; grades
three through eight, three; and.
grades nine through 12, two. All
students must complete a book
report on each reading.
Although book report
guidelines vary somewhat from
school to school, a general
sample report outlining what is
expected is available on the
school district's website.
School officials encourage
parents to get involved in summer
reading, as well, to set a good
example for young students.
"Modeling is important. If they
(students) see parents reading,
even if it's just a newspaper,
they'll see it's important,"
Bridges explained. "With
everything in life, you have to
read, so you have to show kids
the importance of reading."

but Lacy's definitely got me
beat," stated Kyndall locca of her
daughter's accomplishments.
locca beamed with pride as she
spoke of Lacy's return to the
Tallahassee area and
acknowledged that the full two-
year tuition scholarship award
was proof of her daughter's hard
work and talented computer
skills.
Lacy wrote of her ambitions
originating in middle school, to
be a Graphic and Web Designer
and to build a portfolio that
would stand out among the
competition by broadening her
knowledge of imaging software
and technological advances
through education. The
scholarship selection process was
conducted by Board Members of
the Florida Association of Post-
Secondary Schools and Colleges
and required that each applicant
hold a cumulative minimum g.p.a
of 2.0 and submit a 300-word
minimum essay.

Gadsden school board certified as master board


The leadership team of the
Gadsden County school district
was recognized as a master board
June 16 in Tampa, at the annual
spring conference sponsored by
the Florida School Boards
Association.
Members of the leadership team
who completed the program
include the following school
board members: Judge Helms,
Roger Milton, and Isaac


Simmons. Thirty-eight school
districts in Florida currently hold
this distinction.
The master board program is
* voluntary and provides
opportunities for the leadership
team to engage in training that
enhances its capabilities to
provide the visionary leadership
for the school district. The
program concentrates on the
leadership team's governance


roles for enhancing student
achievement, fostering
connections and empowering
collaboration between schools
and the community, and creating
a learning organization to
advance excellence in public
education. The leadership team
completed over 36 hours of
learning activities in statewide
forums and onsite workshops to
earn this distinction.


New legislation encourages Florida

students to attend community colleges


New legislation recently signed
by Governor Jeb Bush will
expand opportunities for
Florida's Bright Futures
Scholarship program and could
impact enrollment numbers at
Tallahassee Community College.
The legislation, approved during
the 2006 Florida legislative
session, enables Florida
Medallion Scholars (FMS) -
eligible high school graduates
with a 3.0 grade point average -
to receive free tuition if they
attend a Florida community
college and enroll in an Associate
of Arts (AA) degree program.
"Tallahassee Community


College welcomes the 2006
Medallion level scholars by
offering TCC's Medallion Days
of Summer," TCC President Bill
Law said. TCC is setting aside
four days still to be determined
- this summer for priority
registration and tours for these
students.
Under previous legislation,
Bright Futures scholarships paid
full tuition to high school
graduates with a 3.5 GPA or
higher and 75-percent of tuition
for medallion students.
Medallion students now have a
greater incentive to enroll at one
of Florida's 28 community


colleges. (For requirements, see
Bright Future's website:
www.firn.edu/doe/brfutures)
The new legislation will remove
all financial barriers for
medallion scholarship students to
go to Tallahassee Community
College or any community
college in the state, thus allowing
the first two years of their post
secondary education to be fully
underwritten. These students
could then transfer to a state
university and finish their final
two years with the 75-percent
scholarship with Bright Futures.
The change in legislation is
effective fall 2006.
