Midway

doubles

director's

pay, quibbles

over agenda

By Leslie Roberts
Times News Editor
Despite the fact that Midway
Community Services Director
Roosevelt Morris has let lapse
several certifications he's
required to maintain as part of his
job, city council members voted
unanimously Thursda'. night to
double his rate of pay.
' "Right's right," said district
four councilman Charles Willis,
who made a motion to increase
Morris' hourly pay rate to $50
i6om $23.07.
'Before, during and after that
action, council members bickered
about everything from agenda
preparation to millage rates, with
audience members joining in
from time to time.
Morris' former contract with
the city designated him as part-
time, for which he was paid
$23.07 per hour.
He is licensed as a standard
inspector. State Department of
Business and Professional
Regulation records show Morris
is in the process of applying for a
license as a building code
administrator and a standard
plans examiner.
Mayor Delores Madison noted
during the July 6 meeting that
several of his professional
licenses expired in May.
Until that time, Morris had been
licensed as a standard plans
examiner, a provisional
mechanical inspector, a building
code administrator, a provisional
commercial electrical inspector,
and a provisional plumbing
inspector.
Licenses he once held
permitting him to work as a
provisional building plans
examiner and a provisional one-
and two-family dwelling
inspector are no longer valid.
At the new rate of pay, Morris

ER weeks (or less) from opening


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
The opening of the Urgent Care Unit
(emergency room) at Gadsden Community
Hospital is just a few weeks or less away,
according to County Manager Marlon
Brown. "We have given all of the interested
parties (those who want the opportunity to
operate the urgent care unit) until 5 p.m.
Wednesday, July 12, to turn in their
proposals. On Thursday and Friday the


assistant county attorney Paul Sexton, our
consultant Joe Sharp and I will review the
proposals; I will make a recommendation to
the Board of County Commissioners
Tuesday, July 18," Brown said.
He said the facility is almost ready with
only a few cosmetic touch-ups left to do.
"We have to decide on the flooring and after
that everything will be done," he said. Once
a provider is selected Brown speculated that
the unit could be open in as little as two
weeks.


"There has been a tremendous amount of
work going on that the public is not seeing.
There are things that we have been doing to
get it open and now the opening is literally
just around he'corner," he said.
The hospital and emergency room have
been closed since Nov. 4, 2005. The Board
of County Commissioners, the legislative
delegation, the Agency on Health Care
Administration, judges, and Gadsden
Hospital, Inc. have worked to reopen the
facility.


EMS Director, Brian Beasley, stated in the
past that not having an emergency room has
caused a strain on his department as well as
the employees. It generally takes a
minimum of two hours to transport a
patient to a Tallahassee hospital and return
to Quincy.
Commissioners promised they would do
all they could to get the emergency room
open. The next step, said Brown, is to get
the hospital open. "We're working hard on
that, too."

Bogan: Citys tax income


doesn't scratch surface


Asks commission for guidance
in balancing budget, providing

adequate city services

by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
Quincy City Manager Bill Bogan, Jr. gave the city
commissioners a laundry list Tuesday night during
the regular meeting to help him get started in the
2006-2007 budget.
Budget workshops are schedule to start soon and
Bogan said he didn't want to waste time on things
commissioners didn't want.
"The city is faced with the challenge of balancing
its budget while delivering adequate services to the
citizens," he said, adding, "in an effort to expedite
the budget process staff needs your guidance."
Bogan explained that current millage rate in the
city is 2.75 which generates about $515,000
annually and that doesn't even scratch the surface.
"Do you want to consider a property tax increase?"
he asked.
"First we need to ask some other things. What do
we need to do? What do we want to do? How much
do we need to get them both? Do we have the
money on hand to do it?" said .Commissioner
Derrick Elias. He said the commission should
establish the wants and needs of the city.
Mayor Pro-Tem Andy Gay said he feels the city
should cut operating costs. The only way he would
support an increase in the millage rate, he was,
would be to build a new police station.
Bogan said the general fund is in a negative
balance and one indicator to determine financial
emergency for local governments in the state is two
consecutive years of having a negative balance.
He wanted to know if the commissioners would
consider an increase in the millage rate if it was
needed to balance the budget. No direction was


given on that item.
When it came to utility rates, commissioners
agreed they did not want to consider a rate reduction
for utility service regardless of the condition of the
utility funds.
Commissioners agreed that they want to give
employees a four percent raise similar to what they
got last year.
Another area that Bogan said staff needs direction
is health care. Currently the. city pays 75 percent of
employee health care and they pay 25 percent. With
healthcare cost steadily rising, the big ticket item is
the 100 percent of healthcare the city pays retirees.
Bogan suggested that the current retirees may have
to be grandfathered in an alternate plan to reduce
the cost to the city.
Bogan said he has already eliminated one position
and 'that another will be cut out over a period of
time. The only exception is in the public safety
department.
He also said the city needs to come up with a
capital improvement plan and asked commissioners
to prioritize those items.
In other matters:
*Bogan told commissioners that he has planned a
meeting with Midway's city manager Paul Piller to
look into the issue of fire protection. "There have
been forty calls to Midway with the city as the
primary responder. We have no interlocal
agreement with them and it's costing us," Bogan
said.
"Bill them," suggested Gay.
*Bogan also plans to meet with Marlon Brown,
county manager, on recreation department use by
county citizens. "It's a cost the citizens of Quincy
are bearing and have been for years. We may not be
looked at as so friendly," Bogan said.
*Elias said Circle Drive has not been repaired to
his nor his constituents satisfaction since the
construction of the new Social Security office. The
city could withhold the Certificate of Occupancy,

Gadsden County Commissioners
approved plats for five
siibdivisions, a replat for a sixth and
an expansion of the Gadsden
Correctional facility during
Tuesday's meeting.
The GCI expansion would
increase it by 55,000 square feet.
The women's prison, located just
south of Gretna, is currently
201,000 square feet; plans are to
add a chapel, dormitory and
medical facility to the existing
prison.
But the commission also
discussed horse manure; of the
literal kind.
They say a picture's worth a
thousand words.
Last week, lawyer Frank Raner
appeared at a Planning and Zoning
Commission meeting to oppose a
request by an Havana man for a
special exception to the land use
amendment that would permit him
to keep three horses on an under-
five-acre property.
At Tuesday night's meeting,,
Raner produced for Gadsden
County commissioners photos
showing that the man had burned
horse manure over the weekend.
The property is classified as rural
residential.
"This gentleman is not going to
obey the rules," Raner said.
During the July 5 Planning and
Zoning meeting, members
approved a request from Charles
Mulvaney for a special exception
that would allow him to keep
horses on a property under five
acres.
The request was approved" with
the provision that Mulvaney stop
the practice of burning horse
manure and haul it away instead,
and that he keep no more than three
horses on the property.
His neighbor, Jack Kirk, opposed
the request, saying the smell was
offensive. Nine of Mulvaney's 12
neighbors wrote letters saying they
didn't oppose keeping horses on
that property, and three spoke in
support of Mulvaney at the
meeting.
During Tuesday night's County
Commission meeting, Raner
produced pictures of a burning pile
of manure that he said were taken
of Mulvaney's property.
Mulvaney's fire pit is situated
adjacent to Kirk's property.
"Are you, burning manure?"
County Commissioner Sterling
Watson asked Mulvaney.
"Yes," Mulvaney said.
"Does it smell?" Watson asked.
"Not to me I think of it as
recycled hay," Mulvaney replied.
Mulvaney said he never agreed to


cease burning manure. He said his
understanding was that the
Planning and Zoning's vote on the
matter constituted a
recommendation, not a rule, and
said he'd stop disposing of manure
in that manner if told to do so by
the County Commission.
Watson recommended limited
approval of Mulvaney's request
and commissioners voted
unanimously to give six-month
approval with the requirement that
Mulvaney stops burning manure.
Also Tuesday, commissioners:
Approved during a public
hearing a conceptual/preliminary
site plan for Hilamn storage
btfilding.
Approved during a public
hearing conceptual plats for The
Highlands at Lake Talquin
subdivision.
* Approved during a public
hearing a conceptual plat for the
Eagles Landing subdivision.
* Approved during a public
hearing a conceptual plat for phase
II of the Carmen Maria subdivision.
* Approved during a public
hearing a preliminary plat for
Susan's Place and a replat for part
of the Waha Minor subdivision.
Approved during a public
hearing a Smith-Montford
comprehensive plan amendment.
* Approved during, a public
hearing a request for an outdoor
entertainment venue temporary use.
The request was made by a Down
on the Farm festival promoter, who
said he anticipates roughly 2,000
will attend the three-day festival in
November.
* Approved during a public
hearing authority to use a grant to
purchase a new ambulance.
* Approved a county building
official's request to run for the
district II seat on County
Commission.

Investigation

continues into

Reston death
The investigation is continuing
into the death of a man who died
Saturday in the Reston area.
Christopher Johnson, 47 of
Jefferson County, came to Gadsden
County to help a man, whose
identity has not been revealed, cut
down a tree on private property.
What happened next is unclear,
according to Lt. Jim Corder of the
Gadsden County Sheriffs Office.
He said that conflicting information
has been received from several
witnesses.
"All I can tell you is that the
investigation is ongoing," he said.

P&Z on manure: shovel it, don't burn it


Approve plat

reviews for

449 lots

including

Highlands

By Leslie Roberts
Times News Editor
In the end, it came down to a
matter of manure disposal.
The Gadsden County Planning
and Zoning Commission July 5
voted 7-1 to grant Charles
Mulvaney a land use amendment
exception, allowing him to
continue to keep horses on his
property. The decision followed
arguments from both sides of the
disputed issue.
As with all planning
commission items, the issue will
be voted on by the County
Commission before being
finalized.
Currently, horse ownership is
not permitted on rura, residential
parcels under five acres..Ati t
heating from Mulvaney and a


lawyer representing a neighbor
opposed to having horses next
door, however, commissioners
decided to allow a special
exception, provided Mulvaney
keep no more than three horses
on his 3.6- acre property and that
he haul horse manure away rather
than burn it as he had been doing.
Mulvaney said he moved to the
property in August and bought it
believing he'd be able to keep
horses on it, as indicated by the
realtor.
His relationship with his
neighbor, Jack Kirk, turned
contentious after Mulvaney
moved horses onto the property
in October, and the two carried
what began as a heated argument
to civil court at least twice.
"I have letters from nine of my
12 neighbors who say they don't
mind 'having horses there,"
Mulvaney told commissioners.
Kirk's main objections to the
animals, his lawyer, Frank Raner,
said is that Mulvaney's practice.
of burning manure sends
unwanted smells toward Kirk's
house, next to Mulvaney's.
He also has concerns about the
possibility of fecal matter seeping

"We would ask that you let Mr.
Kirk live in peace," Raner told
commissioners.
Several of Mulvaney's other
neighbors also own horses and
say they have no dispute with
'Mulvaney.
"I have no problem. We smell
nothing,", said Bill Winn, whose
property is diagonally across
from Mulvaney's.
In 'k other business last
Wednesday, commissioners:

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

By Alice DuPont, Editor



Contemplation



Why are we teaching

our kids how to beg?


On a recent trip out of town I noticed a
number of children, some in athletic
uniforms and others in regular street
clothes, standing on street corners with
cups in their hands. They were asking
for money from motorists whb were
unfortunate enough to have been stopped
by the traffic light. I didn't see any
adults around so I suppose someone
dropped them off and would return at a
pre-determined time to collect them.
Seeing these unsupervised kids was
bad enough but what really, really
disturbed me was that these kids were
learning early to be panhandlers. They
were, in short, learning how to beg. I
suppose they are going to use the money
for what they think is a good purpose.
I don't see kids around here at
intersections asking for contributions,
but I hear from quite a few of them
through letters, knocking on my door,
making appeals at public meetings, or
stopping by the'office. At certain times
of the year, especially in the weeks
leading up to the closing of school, it
seems that everyone needs money for a
trip.
The first question I ask of these young
people is how much they have raised
through other means. I want to know
how much of their own income, through
jobs or allowances, they have
contributed, how much their parents
have contributed and how much they
have earned through cars washes, etc.?
More often than not, they haven't
worked for any money. They are
depending on others to reach into their
pockets and pull out a wad of cash to
pay for their pleasures. The money isn't


going back into the community to help
anyone, the money is going into the
pockets of hotel operators and
restaurants owners.
Growing up, I don't remember
organizations ever sending kids out to
beg for money. If a trip came up, parents
paid your way. If your parents didn't
have the money, you didn't go. None of
these activities are surprise activities.
Kids and parents are notified well in
advance. They can and should begin
saving for these activities.
I think that teaching kids to beg is just
wrong. If the trip is important enough to
take, it is important enough to work for
the money to fund it. We are creating a
generation of people who think that all
you have to do is hold your hand out and
money will fall into it. First of all my
parents would never, as long as they had
breath in their bodies, allow me to go out
begging people for money. There wasn't
a field trip or any other activity that
important.
I've had sponsors of these events tell
me that the kids' parents don't have the
money. It's called priorities folks. Tell
me how parents will willingly fork over
$200 for a pair of tennis shoes and be
suddenly broke when their child wants
to participate in an activity. I've seen
babies in head to toe "Tommy" gear but
the same parents won't invest in a few
books or take a child to get a library
card.
If kids want to take trips as groups,
attend ball camp, dance camp, they
ought to work for it and I don't mean
working their mouths. ,.. .

Leon didn't tell me everything!


I've been married for thirty-two years.
Happily, I should quickly add.
And Cathy and I have done it without the
aid of books, Dr. Phil tapes or long, costly
seminars. We just got married and tried to
figure out life, love, kids, stray cats on the
back porch and house payments as we went
along.
She did have one sister that tried to tell us
how to live but we moved far enough away
and changed our phone number frequently
enough to alleviate that problem.
And, let's understand here, I'm not the
model husband. I have never claimed to be.
I got most of my early "marriage
counseling" from my older brother. Leon
found out I was thinking about asking
Cathy for her hand and he rushed back
home to help out.
"Kes, does this girl have money? You
don't want to work like I'm having to do!
Make sure she likes baseball, golf and
western movies. Check out her mother very
carefully....and make darn sure you like
HER! Because that's what Cathy will be
like in a few years....."
Armed with that information I strolled
out a side door of the First Methodist
Church in Trenton, smiled as Cathy walked
down the aisle, said "I do", stood in a line
and shook hands with everybody in West
Tennessee, thanked Aunt Jane, Aunt
Katherine and Aunt Robbie for coming,
took a picture over by a cake and slipped
out the back door and headed to Dyer
where the Sunday afternoon baseball game
was in full swing.
I changed into my uniform in the back
seat. They were already in the sixth inning
of the first game and we were behind by a
run when I pinch hit for Arlo Cunningham.
I remember how lucky I felt a couple of
innings later as I dusted myself off after a
little fade away hook slide into second. I
had just driven in the go ahead run and my
bride of a couple of hours looked
resplendent sitting up in the bleachers,
cheering me on, still in that white gown
with the layers and layers of ruffles taking
up about three seats.
Yes, sir! You don't have to hit me over
the head with a two by four to tell me I've


been blessed.
Except for that money part, Cathy has
been more than I expected and greater than
I had hoped for! I just have trouble-telling
her that. I figure she should have studied
up on my Father very closely back in '74
and she would have me "down pat" by
now.
I think about telling her how nice she is,
but HighPlains Drifter comes on t.v. or
Jordan Todd stops by.....
Here's one of the great things about life-
you never get too old to leam. Cathy's
family just had a reunion on the back side
of some lake on the far side of Georgia, up
near the North Carolina-South Carolina
border. I went just to see if I could find this
place!
And I was curious to see if age was
slowing Jo Bair's gargantuan eating habits.
Plus, they had enough collective children
at this thing to make it interesting for me.
You can always count on the kids! They
will take you swimming, skiing, fishing,
hiking....they will show you some card
tricks, they will stay up all night with
you....they laugh when you "borrow" a bite
of their sandwich....
But I never suspected this particular
family reunion was going to hold a special
bonus for me! And it didn't take long to get
it going. Marc and Alan, who, like me had
"married in" got to discussing how to make
your wife happy. Jesse Parker, who was
born into the clan, was allowing as how the
right phrase at the correct monient could
work wonders for any marriage. The first
night, right after supper, they lingered
around the kitchen table swapping favorite
"wife complements" like it was a business
meeting for IBM.
"Honey, that purse really goes well with
those shoes."
"Oh, that's a good one." Jesse laughed,
"How about, 'Dear, what have you done
with your hair! It looks great!'"
I was amazed. I just thought if I paid the
bills and let Cathy go see her family when
she wanted to everything was hunky-dory.
I kinda said as much to the guys....
"Oh, no Kes! You've got to compliment

The bear facts


By now you've read the news stories about
an increase in black bear activity across the
state and the nation.
That really is all it takes to send me in
search of a sound bear defense strategy. But
on top of that, at least three people this week
alone have told me that somebody told them
that they heard from somebody else that
there are, probably, bears in Gadsden
County.
That sealed it. I began researching bear
deterrent options in earnest. I did discover
that some advise it's best to play dead
should you stumble on a bear somewhere.
Then I read that advice is only applicable to
grizzly bears, which don't commonly eat
carcasses black bears do. Lie down in front
of a black bear and it'll assume you're the
perfect midnight snack.
So rule No. 1 is: Try to look alive. That's
easier said than done some days. If a bear
spots me before coffee, I'm toast.
Rule No. 2: Do not run away. A website
selling what else bear pepper spray
advises that bears can almost instantly reach
speeds of 35 m.p.h. Standing your ground is
the best option here, according to the
website, which also advises only letting
loose with the $39.95 can of pepper spray
they've sold you when you're close enough
to spray it directly in the bear's face. This, at
least to my way. of thinking, will almost
certainly cause the bear to instantly affirm
that you are, indeed, a creature worth killing.
Slowly. With no promises that all your body
parts will wind up in the same square mile.
Or the same state, for that matter.
Rule No. 3: Do not feed the bears.
Anything. Ever. For any reason. Even if it
looks ieall. hu ngri and comes lumbering
into your back yard holding a tin cup in one
paw and a cardboard sign with shaky letters

that read "Will work for food" in the other.
Do get us a picture, though.
There's more about bears that makes for
good reading they can swim incredibly far,
they can run entirely more rapidly than I
want to know about, they can chase you
right up a tree and whistle the 1812 Overture
through their teeth while they're doing it.
Even so, the Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission website lists only
87 threatened and no actual attacks by bears
on humans from 1978-2004. In that same
time period, however, 3,297 bears were
spotted in yards or other areas in close
proximity to humans.
So I called Karen Weigelt, a forester with
the state Division of Forestry, to see what
she had to say about bears in the area. She
readily admits bears are not her area of
expertise, but she works at Bear Creek
Educational Forest, a 492-acre state forest at
the south end of the county that is part of the
Lake Talquin State Forest. That's good
enough for me.
The site's'air-conditioned classroom
opened in December, and so far, around
1,300 students have toured the facility with
some participating in one or more of the 12
programs offered there.
I glanced over the list of supplies foresters
recommend kids bring for their day at the
park not once did I see pepper spray or
next of kin notification numbers suggested. I
see that as a good thing.
I asked Weigelt whether there were any
bears out there.
"Not that I've seen," she said, "but we do
have a stuffed bear in the lobby I think it
came from Daytona, it was hit by a car."
See? I knew there were bears in those:
woods.

Dr. Furlow: A great

woman, my mentor,

and my friend

Miss DuPont,
I enjoyed reading your story on Dr. Furlow; I worked
with Dr. Furlow at Gadsden Community Hospital for
seven years, and I liked her the first time I met her. She
wasn't like other doctors who just come in, see their
patients and leave. She always interacted with the staff
by talking with us and making us laugh.
She was very dedicated to her patients. If one of her
patients was in trouble, she was right there within
minutes at their bedside, no matter what time you called
her. She was my mentor and friend! I always wanted to
be a nurse but kept procrastinating about going to
school. Dr. Furlow pushed and pushed until I finally
gave in. I am now enrolled in nursing school and hope to
graduate with my bachelor's degree by next year.
Each time I talked with her, she reminded me that she
was waiting for her invitation to my graduation and also
reminded me that she would be there, but God had
other plans for her.
I remember I had to interview a successful person that
influenced me for one of my classes, and the first person
that came to mind was Jessie Furlow M.D. So I called
her at home and left a message on her answering
machine telling her about my assignment, asking her
permission to interview her, whenever she could get the
time to do it.
I had two months to work on it, so I asked her if she
could do it to give me a call whenever she got the
chance. This was on a Friday and by Saturday afternoon
my phone rang, and she was on the other end, asking me
if I was ready. I told her I would make it short, and she
responded, "No, you do it right."
Needless to say, I got an "A" on that interview. She
may not be at my graduation physically, but I know she
will be right there cheering me on spiritually. I loved her
dearly and will miss her so much. She was truly one
great woman, my mentor, and my friend!

Gems

A fortune for free
Wendy and I used to make a
habit of hitting our favorite used
book store on nearly every trip to
Panama City (back when we lived
at Port St. Joe). The poor, old, run-
down shack offered a fortune in
reading material. John Grisham,
Greg Isles, Ernest Hemingway,
James Jones, William Faulkner,
Sue Grafton, Michael Connelly...
All for pennies on the dollar. And
you could trade two for one and
make your buck go
even further.
But when we
moved to Quincy a .
couple of years ago v.i- -:
we had to make a
slight adjustment to i
our reading P_ -
habits. Quincy
(and even Tallahassee I think)
does not offer a used book store.
So now we "rent" rather than
buy. And the "rent" is really, really
cheap...it's free! Courtesy of The
Gadsden County Library.
We were quite happy to head on
down the steps into the old library
underneath the Sheriff's Office for
our weekly trip to stock up on
reading material. Pleasant people.
Good books. All for free. What
could be better?
Turns out there is something
better...Our new library is brighter,
a little more conveniently located,
and still offers good books from
pleasant people.
And perhaps it just took a new
building to catch my attention, but
there's a lot going on there besides
checking out books.
Like reading clubs for kids.
Like a Bookmobile that makes
some 66 different stops a month
around the county.
b Like a new youth advisory
board.
Like reading programs.
And of course a lot of computers
with internet access.
And all you need to take
advantage of everything the library
offers is a library card. It's free,
too.

The Ponderosa
On Page B 1 of this week's paper
Leslie Roberts takes us behind the
gates of another Gadsden County
gem, one that few people know
exists here.
The Ponderosa is 450 acres of
rolling south Gadsden County land
that boasts a population of Watusi
cattle, elk and other exotic
creatures.
The ranch is owned by a couple
of engineers who wanted a unique
retreat away from the city and
away from the crowded beaches
they each called home.
They looked around a lot. South
Georgia. North Florida. West
Florida. But they found their
paradise right here.
Another guy I know (a medical
professional who specializes in
operating emergency rooms for
hospitals) also feels it just doesn't
get any better than this. He's
bought some acreage in southwest
Gadsden County and hopes to
make it his home soon.
Fact is, this is a great place to be.
Gadsden County residents have
known that for a long, long time. It
looks, just like the Forgotten
Coast, we've been discovered.

Gadsden Arts Center
When a town the size of Quincy
can host world-class art like the
Vik Muniz exhibit that's there
right now you know it's a gem.
Coupled with its opening night
event was a special guest lecturer.
Whether it's a world-class


exhibit or the state watercolor
society show or a local exhibitor,
the Gadsden Arts Center can be
counted on to shine.

Jury finds man not guilty of Havana sexual assault charge


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

A Gadsden County jury deliberated for
only an hour before finding a Tallahassee
man, Anthony James Scott, not guilty of
sexually assaulting a Havana woman.
"This isn't a case that should have been
brought to trial in the first place," said


Martin Black, Scott's attorney, after the
verdict.
The woman and Scott both testified on
the witness stand that they met last June
at a Tallahassee night spot and started
what amounted to a sexual relationship.
But once she found out that Scott was
married she broke off the relationship.
On October 19, Scott showed up at her


home around mid-morning. She let him
in and, Scott said, the woman at first told
him no because she had to leave for work
by 10:30 a.m. and that she didn't have
the time. But he testified, she later
changed her mind.
Martin maintained in closing arguments
that the woman only decided it was
sexual assault after she was late to work


and needed an excuse. "The only issue
here is consent, justice and fairness. It is
no doubt that Mr. Scott had sex with her,
but these are two consenting adults,"
Black argued.
He asked the jury not to convict Scott
on the bad choice he made or because of
his infidelity. "This case screams the
fact that no one had sex against their


will," Black said.
Assistant State Attorney John Hutchins
III told the jury that in Gadsden county
when a woman says "no" it means no.
"There were two people in that house
and both of them have testified here. Do
you believe a hard-working single
mother, or do you believe a 10-time
convicted felon?" he asked.


Skydiver hurt in collision with


power lines at Quincy airport


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

A 48-year-old Bonifay man
remains in Tallahassee Memorial
Hospital after he drifted into a
powerline and power pole
Saturday afternoon while
parachuting at the Quincy


Airport.
According to a report on file
with the Gadsden County
Sheriff's Office Loflin was found
hanging from a powerline by his
parachute. "He had drifted off
course during his jump and
suffered a severe ankle break
when he collided with a utility


pole," the report stated. He was
taken by helicopter to TMH.
Sheriff Morris Young said
Loflin was lucky to be alive. "It
could have taken another turn of
events that could have been
tragic," he said.


The Pat Thomas Law Enforcement Academy
(PTLEA) celebrated a milestone Tuesday, June 27
when it graduates the 300th basic recruit class that
has come through the academy since its inception.
The 7 p.m. ceremony took place at PTLEA.
During the ceremony, PTLEA presented the
following awards: Top Gun (best shot with the
firearms training course), Top Defensive Tactics
(student/recruit who shows the greatest
improvement with the physical aspects of
arrest/physical take down and any law enforcement
use of force issues) and the Sergeant Dale Green
Memorial Award, given to one outstanding
member of each class for achieving a standard of
excellence that future professional law enforcement
officers may use as a guide. The award is given in
honor of Dale Green, the Tallahassee Police
Department officer., who died in the line of duty


November 13, 2002.
Gerald Bailey, newly appointed interim
Commissioner of the Florida Department of Law
Enforcement, was the guest speaker. Bailey has
more than 30 years of law enforcement and
investigative experience, including a long career
with FDLE.
Because of PTLEA's reputation for excellence
statewide, half of the 34 graduates left the
ceremony already employed by law enforcement
agencies in our area. Additionally, Kissimmee
and Largo Police Departments were present to hire
five graduates as they left the stage.
"We are increasingly finding agencies from other
areas of the state are recruiting our graduates
because of our reputation, instead of hiring
graduates from their own local academies," Dr. Jim
Murdaugh, training center director, said.


Newborn smuggled from TMH


Gadsden deputies join in

multi-county search for mother

bi ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

Gadsden County deputies joined in a multi-agency
search for four-day-old Daniel Robinson Friday.
The baby's mother, Melody Renay Robinson of
Quincy, allegedly smuggled the infant out of
Tallahassee Memorial Hospital in a black duffel bag
Thursday night after giving birth Monday.
"They think she might be headed to Quincy or
hiding out with relatives here," said Lt. Sheldon
Turner of the Gadsden County Sheriff's Office. An
Amber Alert went out early Friday as well.
Authorities said the child was born with cocaine in
his system and that Robinson had been put on notice
Thursday night by a protective services worker with
the Department of Children and Family that the
baby would be placed in protective custody and
would be put in foster care Friday when he was
released from the hospital. The baby was born
weighing 4 pounds, .13 ounces and was 12 inches
long.
The agency decided to place the infant in
protective custody because they had taken two of

would make around $52,000
annually if he worked only 20
hours weekly; however, he told
council members he often worked
more than 20 hours per week. City
Manager Paul Piller said he is
working with individual council
members this week to iron out
some of the motion's ambiguities.
The city *pays an independent
contractor from Tallahassee $100
per hour to perform the services
Morris is no longer licensed to do,
Piller said.
A check with other small cities in
the Big Bend region shows
comparable positions paying much
less.
The city of Blountstown,
population 2500, pays the Calhoun
County building inspector by
annual contract $6,000 to do
building inspections for the city as
needed; he makes $35,630 as
county building inspector and also
serves as building official and the
local State Housing Initiatives
Partnership (S.H.I.P.) program
coordinator.
In Monticello, which has a
population of 2,533, the county's
building inspector also does city
inspections. The city pays nothing
for inspections, clerk of courts Dale
Boatwright said, and is paid
$26,500 for full-time work.
Midway, which has a population
of 1,446, has, however, seen a rapid
increase in development in recent
years and expects more overflow
from Tallahassee. Mayor Pro Tem
Ella Barber credits Morris with
"bringing money in."
In the original agreement the city
had with Morris, he was to have
become a certified building official


Robinson's older children at birth for the same
reason.
While deputies looked for Robinson in Gadsden
County, she was traced to the home of her sister.
Liucy Matthews, in Blountstown. The baby and
mother were, taken into custody without incident.
The pair was of concern to several law
enforcement agencies Thursday night and Friday,
including GCSO, Tallahassee Police Department,
North Florida Violent Fugitive Task Force, the
National Center for Missing and Endangered
Children and other agencies.
The turn of events began Thursday night when
Robinson was feeding the baby under the
supervision of a nurse. She allegedly asked. the
nurse for privacy while she used the restroom.
When the nurse checked back about 20 minutes
later, Robinson and the baby were gone.
The hospital was placed on lockdown and security
officers covered exits. Surveillance cameras showed
Robinson leaving the hospital in a hospital gown
and carrying a duffel bag. "
The baby has been turned -over to DCF and
Robinson was arrested and charged with one count
of inteferring with child custody, which is a third
degree felony.
"The main thing was to get the baby back safe and
sound," Turner said.


within 12 months of his
employment, which began in 2003.
His applications to the state for the
licenses that would make that
possible are still pending.
During his report to council
members, Morris told them 30
families have moved into Midway
since June and that his department
has collected $99,072 in permit
fees.
The council also voted to increase
Stephanie Towers' pay from $8 per
hour to $15 per hour and to give her
permission to work until at least 6
p.m., later if necessary. Towers
coordinates the city's summer
children's program.
Thursday's meeting began at 7
p.m. By 9 p.m., several council
members expressed frustration that
it had gone on for two hours with
no end in sight.
Councilman James Hinson said
that a reorganization of items on the
agenda had not been effective in
shortening meeting times, and
made a motion to change its
organization back to the way it was
before the most recent change.
"With all due respect, this is not
going to work," Hinson said.
The motion failed because of a
tied vote, with Barber, Willis and
Louis Parker opposing it.
Audience member Jenrry Range
then suggested someone make a
motion to make the agenda shorter,
which Willis instantly did, causing
Piller to throw his hands in the air
and say, "How do you make the
agenda shorter?"
The motion failed 4-2 with only
Willis and Patrick Johnson
supporting it.
At one point in the meeting,
which lasted until llp.m., Range
demanded to be heard in regard to a
request by Davis Barbecue for a
temporary electric pole at its
location on Blue Star Highway.


The mayor denied his request, at
which point he handed a letter to
the interim city attorney and asked
him to retd it. The mayor asked the
attorney not to read the letter, and a
Gadsden County Sheriffs deputy
quietly asked Range to refrain from
speaking unless he was recognized
by the council.
,The council voted to approve the
temporary pole, with Willis
abstaining.
In other action Thursday, Midway
City Council members:
Approved the setting of the
fnist public hearing on a proposal to
set the millage at the rollback rate
of 3.2159. The current rate is
4.3069 mills. The new rate is the
equivalent of $3.22 per $1,000 of
taxable value. What that means is
that based on new construction, the
same number of tax dollars can be
raised with the lower rate. Property
owners will likely see a smaller tax
bill for the city, but not necessarily
a smaller tax bill overall, Piller said.
Approved 6-0 using $4,500 to
buy a new riding lawnmower for
the public works department.
Approved an amendment to the
city per diem and travel policy
which increases the substinence
rate for city employees from $50
per day to $80 per day or, if
expenses exceed $80 per day, pays
actual expenses for lodging at a
single-occupancy rate and meals.
The measure also bumps mileage
up from 29 cents per mile to 44.
Tabled a request by Hinson to
withdraw as a candidate for the
Planning and Zoning board after
Barber and Hinson exchanged
sharp words over the issue.
* Tabled adoption of changes to
city policy on public records. The
changes primarily outlined the costs
of copies, where public records
may be found and where meeting
notices are posted.

heart attack, according to Major
David Gainous of the Gadsden
County Sheriffs Office.
Ganious said Jameson was last
seen Wednesday afternoon
putting a tractor under the shed.
"When he didn't show up
Thursday morning, they (other
employees) looked for him.
When the deputies arrived he was
found in the hallway leading into
the bathroom as if he was getting
ready to take a shower. The TV

"He was great with the kids and
he was always very helpful," said
Inv. Scott Ivey of the Gadsden
County Sheriffs Office. As a
school resource officer Ivey took
elementary school kids camping
at the reservation on several
occasions.
He remembered Jameson for his
concern for kids. "Even if some
of the kids could afford fees, he
would give them a break," she
said.
The 51-year-old Jameson was
responsible for the 600 acre, 14
building compound. he has been
at the reservation for the past
eight years. He was responsible
for safety programs, maintenance
and a range of other activities. -
"He really cared about the kids.
I, for one, will miss him," Ivey
said.


My mother had leukemia and
she was given many units of
blood. When people asked us
how they could help with my
mother, we told them they
could give blood. One of my
co-workers then called and set
up the first blood drive at
Focus Credit Union in
Chattahoochee. Now we have
drives also at our Quincy loca-
tion. This is a wonderful way
for people to help.

Veronica Eutsay begins her journey to recovery as Gadsden EMTs and Quincy police load her into an ambulance for her trip to
Tallahassee Memorial Hospital. Ms. Eutsay will probably transfer to an Ohio obesity treatment center.


Quincy woman battles obesity



"I'm ready to do something about my condition",


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

You can call her an "angel of
mercy," because that's what 91-
year-old Daisy Bell Elias was to
50-year-old Veronica Eutsay.
"Had it not been for Miss Daisy
Bell, Veronica might have died
right there in that house," said
Arrie Battle, director of
community services for Gadsden
Woman to Woman.
It was Elias who, last week,
called Battle and said she was too
old to keep preparing meals and
taking them across the street to
Eutsay. She asked Battle to get
the woman some help. But when
Battle arrived at the house she
was not prepared for what she
found.
Eutsay, who thought she
weighed about 550 pounds (she
was actually closer to 700
pounds) has been unable to
adequately care for herself for the
past four years. The small home
where she lives alone is in
disrepair. The toilet doesn't work
and none of the appliances in the
tiny kitchen are' operational.
There is no air conditioning and
the mattress on the bed where she
lies all day and night sags nearly
to the floor.
Even Elias wasn't aware of the
extent of Eustay's problems. "I
haven't seen her in years. I've
never been in her house," Elias
said. Each day she would walk
across the street with a plate or
bowl of food and pass it to Eutsay
through a small slit cut in the
screen of her bedroom window.
A two-burner hot plate a few
inches from the bed is what she
used to cook what little food she
was able to prepare for herself, to
re-heat food and boil water.
A large bottle of Clorox was on
the floor next to the bed. She was
using it to keep ants away
because she was afraid that they
would crawl into the bed and she
would be unable to fight them
off.
Teenagers in the neighborhood
said she calls children to the
window, hands them a list and
money, paying them to go to the
neighborhood store. Her grocery'
list consisted mainly of a variety
of junk food. The evidence of her
bad eating habits littered the
floor, no doubt contributing to the
ant problems.
"I'm sorry for the way it smells
in here," she said repeatedly,
adding, "I just can't get up to
clean anything. She fears getting
up or even trying in the house
alone. "If I go to the bathroom, I
might fall through the floor," she
said.
Thus, the small room she lives
in has become the center of her
universe. A 13-inch television
with grainy picture but good
sound sits on the dresser.
"I really need some help. I can't
blame anyone for my condition.
Nobody did this to me, but me. I
put myself in this situation," she
said.
Eutsay's problems started when
she lost her job at a Tallahassee
company. She said she became
depressed and her life started on a
downward spiral.
She ate and stayed in bed,
watching television and reading
novels. The depression, combined
with a diet of junk food, was
enough to help her weight creep
up to an unmanageable state.
"It broke my heart to see the
conditions she was living in, I'm
a strong woman, but I cried. You
see things like this on television
but not right here in your own
community," Battle said.
Eutsay told Battle she has asked
for help from social service
agencies and no one came to her
rescue. She suffers, she said,
from hypertension. What other
ailments she may have are


I've stopped lying to myself and
to other people," she said.

unknown; she hasn't seen a
doctor in more than a year. When
she manages to go out, a man
named John Henry comes for her
in his pickup truck. "It takes Mr.
John Henry and six (teenage)
boys to help me get in the truck. I
want to get a friend of mine to be
able to pay my bills for me, but
the people at the bank say I have
to come in to do that, and I
can't," she said.
Battle called Sherrie
VanLandingham, chairwoman of
the Gadsden County Health
Coalition. "The first thing we
have to do is get you to a hospital
to take care of your medical
needs," VanLandingham said,
when' Eutsay said she wanted to
get someone to make repairs to
her home.
She was embarrassed for
VanLandingham to call for help.
"I don't have any clothes," she
said, pointing to the bedspread
she had wrapped around herself.
When Gadsden EMS arrived,
Eutsay said she was mentally
prepared to go. "A part of me
thought it was about time. I'm
ready to do something about my
condition," she told Battle and
VanLandingham. "My mother is
dead and my grandmother is
dead, that's really all I had," she
said.
It took four EMTs and two
police officers to get Eutsay into
the ambulance. They were able to
get her off the bed and walked
her to the front door where she
lay on the stretcher. Each step
was so painful tears streamed
down her cheeks.
"Thank you all. Thank you all
so much. Thank you for
everything," she said as the
attendants closed to door.
"I'm getting there," she said
from the hospital Monday
morning. Doctors have already
begun to work on her weight and
she has begun to work on herself
mentally. She is thinking about
her future and where she will go
when she is released. A social
worker through Tallahassee
Memorial Hospital has been
assigned to her case.
"They say the closest
place I can go for this obesity is
in Ohio. They will treat me, talk
to me about nutrition, and get a
psychiatrist for me. I hate to go
so far from home, but I have
relatives in Ohio, so I will be
okay. I messed up the first half
of my life, now I want to do
something about the second half.

The Gadsden County Times July 13, 2006 9-



Gadsden officials honor area legislators at breakfast


by Alice DuPont
Times Editor

Gadsden County officials, to
show their appreciation for a
successful year. in the legislature,
hosted a breakfast last Thursday
morning. Along with the grits,
eggs, bacon, saugage, pancakes,
and biscuits those who attended
got a huge serving of gratitude. '
"We got everything we asked
for except a few things," said
Commission Chairman Ed Dixon.
Reps. Curtis Richardson and
Marti Coley were able to attend
this first Legislative Appreciation
Breakfast. Sen. Al Lawson could
not attend because of a prior
engagement, and sent his aide,
Melissa Durham. Also sending
representatives were U.S. Cong.
Allen Boyd and U.S. Sen. Bill
Nelson. I .
Dixon said when Lawson,
Richardson and Coley told them
to get together and prioritize their
request for funding, things
changed. "We got a list together
that we were able to agree on and


took it to the state and the federal
government. We did it, it worked
and we know how to do it."
He said the county has already
started thinking about the 2007
session. "We start thinking about
tomorrow today. There are things
we need to accomplish and there
are goals we need to set. We've
got to get a handle on Gadsden
County and where we want to
go," he said.
"Sen. Lawson was disappointed
that some of the projects were
vetoed by the governor, but we
are looking forward to next year.
It makes a difference when
people work together," Durham
said.
Each member of the delegation
was given a gift bag. And, while
Richardson appreciated the gift,
he said, "The greatest gift for me
is that you allowed me to serve
you. We've been able to do more
with team work and that has
made all the difference."
Richardson, who goes into his
last year as a representative in
2007 because of term limits, said


it is important that Gadsden
County continue to work to
secure funding for health care
infrastructure. "That is one of the
major issues facing rural counties
all over the state," he said.
Coley, who represents a small
portion of Gadsden County, was
in there fighting for the county
said Dixon. As a Republican, he
said, she was very instrumental in
opening some partisan doors. She
too, said she was honored to
serve Gadsden County. "Your
delegation worked together," she
said.
The county's lobbyist, Chris
Doolin, told the audience of
mostly elected and appointed
officials that the entire county is
making progress in a positive
way. "Greater things can happen
in this community. We're going
to build those things. Nobody is
coming to save us, we have to
save ourselves. We want to
celebrate Gadsden County," he
said.


Chris Doolan, county lobbyist, talks with locals about the recent legislative session and progress
being made in Gadsden County. "We want to celebrate Gadsden County," he said.


Marlon Brown addresses a crowd of local civic leaders and elected officials at the recent legislation
appreciation breakfast.

Anderson signals dawn of a new era for EGHS football


New EGHS

coach brings

experience

from Georgia

Tech, Texas

by Joe Ferolito
Sports Editor
With a long way to go and a
short time to get there, Scott
Anderson took over as the head
football coach at East Gadsden
last Wednesday.
Anderson was hired by
Superintendent Reginald James to
fill the post early last week and
Anderson has hit the trail
running.
"The timing is a big
challenge." Says Anderson who
comes to the jo.b after a two year
tint at Jacksonville Sandlewood
where he was the offensive
coordinator for the Saints team
that compiled a 13-8 record in
that time.
;"Fall practice begins July 31."


Anderson continued. "I have to
get to know my players and put a
staff in place by that time."
Anderson is a native of
Massachusetts and played
football, hockey, and ran track
while in prep school at Governor
Dummer Academy.
He then attended Georgia Tech
where he played freshman
football and worked as a graduate
assistant for the Yellow Jackets,
while earning a B.A.E. Degree in
Aerospace Engineering.
He later earned a Masters
Degree in Kinesilogy at the
University of Texas while
working with the Longhorn team.
as a graduate assistant. He was a
linebackers coach at Southern
Illinois and West Texas State, a
running backs coach at Duke and
offensive coordinator at
Kentucky State and Indiana State.
He also was the head coach at
Navarro Junior College in
Corsicana, Texas for a year. He
has a wife Karen, a daughter
Laura (13) and a son Wyatt (10).
"I liked Sandlewood' and felt we
had a great team coming back."
Said Anderson. "Hut then I was
intrigued by the opening at East.
Gadsden."
"I knew the history of football


in the county, and I know there
are fine athletes at the school.
I feel there is a great
opportunity to build a strong
winning tradition and I want to be
a big part of that." Anderson
continued.
"I was thoroughly interviewed
by the football committee and
was honored that I was in the
running for the job. I'm pleased
that the committee,
Superintendent Reginald James,
Principal Dr. William Harvey ,
and A.D. Andy Gay have
confidence enough to allow me
the opportunity to lead the East
Gadsden program. I feel they
along with the community are
committed to building a strong
student-athlete tradition."
"I know that East Gadsden
plays a tough schedule but that is
part of the territory of Big Bend
football, we'll be ready though
when things get underway on the
18th when we host West
Gadsden."
"I'm pleased that Scott got the
job." Principal Harvey said.
"We're all looking forward to
working with him and to getting,
the football program on a high
level."

Seminole

Ramlins'

by Jack Wingate

The best fishen news we've had
roun here in-a-while is the fact
that a new Georgia State Record
Flat Head Catfish was taken from
the Altamahaw River in Wayne
Co., Ga. Mr. Carl-Sawer landed
him on a rod and reel. He tipped
the scales at 83 lbs., 5 more than
the old record. Wayne Co. has a
bounty set up of 50,000.00 for the
one that.a bounty of 100,000.00
to any one who can beat the
world's record in Wayne Co.
Over there they think the fishen
industry is great.
On our local Lake here, there
has been so many catches of Big
Bream on Crickets that we can't
count them. The Bream are even
bigger than last year, so was the
Shellcracker this year. Grass,
Snails and Grass'Shrimp make
the difference. If you want to
fish Seminole you go with
someone that knows the grass


and let him show'you the tricks.
Speckle Perch continue to come
in on Jigs here on the Lake.
They seem to be found jist off the
heavy grass over deep water 7 to
10 feet deep.
The summer heat has taken its
tool on Bass. The clubs that
fished this weekend had trouble
getting hits. Here's a tip that
mite help. They are hitting in
schools of Baby Needle Fish.
The best catch we had was made
by Mike Hendrix of Homerville,
GA who won the Valdosta Bass
Clubs Fish, 2 Fish 9.41bs. one
was a 7.4. Water on the
Chattahoochee yesterday at 89
degrees while on the Flint it was
83 degrees.
Some reported deep
Shellcracker beds but for the life
of me I never saw one
Shellcracker this week.
Goodniss grashus; figs is ripe,
corn is in season, grapes are near
ready, peas plentiful and okra is
ready. Hard to stay put on a diet
with all them temptations.
We look to a better week of
fisher this week, so keep a tite
line.

Vik Miniz: REMASTERED opens at Gadsden Arts Center


Renowned artist's

collection on loan

from Oaks,

Pennsylvania

until Sept. 3

by Alice DuPont
Times Editor

Vik Muniz: REMASTERED
opened Sunday at the Gadsden
Arts Center. Those attending the
opening got an extra treat from
Lee Stoetzel, guest lecturer. The
entire exhibit is on loan from the
West Collection of Oaks,
Pennsylvania until September 3.
"There was something special
about Vik Muniz, something that
is hard to find in an artist and it
set him apart," said Stoetzel. He
met the artist 14 years ago in
New York City when he worked
with Gadsden Arts Center
director Tricia Collins.
He said that not only was Muniz
a genius but that he has the
ability to take oddball objects and
turn them into art.
Like the drawings with
chocolate. Not just any chocolate
but Bosco chocolate. It seems
that when Muniz was re-creating
the masterpeice of the famous
drip artist Jackson Pollock he
used chocolate.
"He took a miniature safety pin
and created the chocolate on a
small piece of plexiglass. Then,
through the photographic process,
he blows it up to the size it is
now. He had to work quickly so
that the chocolate kept its fluid-


like look," Stoetzel said.
Muniz is an artist whose famous
re-creations are of well-known
images throughout history. He
uses a variety of everyday items
such as dirt, sugar, wire, strings,
and chocolate syrup.
"He selects some of the most
beautiful masterpieces,
sometimes creating them only on
legal-size paper," he said.
"I'm glad I came to see the
exhibit. I should have purchased
the Jackson Pollock in New York
when I first saw it," said Dody
Flowers of Tallahassee. The piece
now sells for a hefty $80,000.
While Muniz works with a
camera, he can hardly be called a
photographer. His creations are
intriguing. Like the "Still Life
With Apples, After Cezanne" in
which he had helpers cut out
thousands of round holes from
magazines. Stoetzel said he then
selected all of the yellows,
oranges, and reds to make the 72
x 97.75 inch piece. "He
painstakingly glued each peice of
round paper," he said.
"The Raft of Medusa, after
Gericault" is also from the
Chocolate Series. Sotetzel
suggest that to fully take
advantage of the peice is to view
it from across the room.
Muniz has been making and
photographing illusionistic
drawings, sculptures and
arrangements since 1988.
The Muniz show was
underwritten by Cook Brothers,
Inc. of Quincy, Hayes Computer
Service of Tallahassee and an
anonymous donor in honor of
Margaret Thrower and Julia
Woodward.

Bill Brooks, new co-owner and general manager at Chevrolet-Buick of Quincy, says he plans to hire
six new salespeople over the next few months.


New owner cruises into local Chevy dealership


by Leslie Roberts
Times News Editor

Having spent much of the past
few years traveling around the
country organizing automotive
promotions, Bill Brooks is ready
to stay put for a while.
As the new co-owner and
general manager of Chevrolet-
Buick of Quincy, he'll be able to
do just that. It's a prospect he's
looking forward to.
"I've traveled around quite a
bit," said Brooks, who started' as
general manager July 1. "I
decided I was going to get back
into retail and this opportunity
came up, so I'm in Quincy, Fla."
Brooks, 52, is originally from
Sarasota. He owned a promotion
company in St. Augustine before
moving here. Once he decided to
enter a partnership with
Chevrolet-Buick owner Doug
Plattner, he began looking at
ways to increase the dealership's
inventory and sales.
"Basically, I recognize this as a
bedroom community to
Tallahassee," Brooks said. "The
biggest challenge I have is to
draw from the outlying
communities."
Brooks, who also owned a
Toyota dealership in St.
Augustine for five years, hopes to
use some of the' same strategies
here that proved useful there. One
of those is a community cookout
on Saturday at the dealership.
"I did that in St. Augustine,


bought some hotdogs and
hamburgers and had a cookout
from 11:30 to about 1 p.m. it
was the best money I ever spent.
Everybody got to know each
other," he said.
Other plans include boosting
inventory from around 160 to
200.
"We plan to build up the
inventory to produce 200 sales
per month," he said. "Chevy is
getting aggressive with
incentives, and we have several
programs that cost the dealership
money but are worth it in the long
run: tires for life, which doesn't
cost new car buyers a .cent; oil
changes for life, which also does
not cost them a cent when you
look at those, for somebody who
is looking at buying a car, that's a
real deal. I think if we can keep
them coming back here, we'll
build that long-term

Io* ea m *r-- E" irsonal
'^lu.Caicor^;


relationship."
Meanwhile, Brooks is getting
settled in and working on spiffing
up Chevrolet-Buick a bit.
"It's a 17-acre lot I want it to
look nice. We are going to spruce
it up, clean it up, make it look
nice," he said.
He plans to do some hiring in
the next few months, Brooks said,
and will add around six
salespeople to his staff.
"I'd love to hire as many local
guys as I can get," said Brooks,
who first worked as a car
salesman in 1978. "I'm from the
old school I like to work with
the same group, I don't like a lot
of change. I like the stability of
people getting to know each
other."
Chevrolet-Buick of Quincy is
located at 2039 West Jefferson
St.

S* Hunkerin'
Quincy man savors victory in new paternity law
Continued from Page 4


Paid support for 12

years for kids not

his own

by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
Last Friday Tony Winbush, of Quincy,
exhaled.
For the past 12 years Winbush has been
saying mandatory child support for children
e did not father. And he was not alone.
Last Friday, with the stroke of his pen Gov.
Jeb Bush paved the way for men such as
Winbush to petition the courts to stop the
payments once it has been determined the
men are not the biological fathers.
Three years ago Winbush started knocking


on doors trying to get
someonee to listen to his
problem. Four years ago,
the State of Georgia has
passed a similar law. Rep.
Curtis Richardson, who
admitted at the time that
he was not aware of the
hiagnitude of the problem,
took up Winbush's fight
and introduced legislation.
: "I thank Rep.
IRichardson, the governor
and everybody who heard
what we (men and their,
vives) had to say and
believed us," Winbush
said.


The fact that h
prove through
that he was no
.father didn't n
difference to a:
the judge, not
Department of
and Families o
else that Winb
to convince.


Winbush said he has paid almost $50,000 in
payments and he wants it back. Last week he
took the first steps to take the woman to civil
court to get reimbursed.
S"I tried to get her to talk to me; all she had
to do was go down and tell the truth. I was
willing to let bygones be bygones, but she
won't even talk to me," he said.
* Winbush said he and the mother of the child
dated about two years and it was during that
time that she became pregnant.
: "I was so happy, I didn't even question it.
This was going to be my mother's first
grandchild and my whole family was excited.
I believed everything she said, I never


(*)


questioned her," he said.
The questions arose four years later while
on a weekend visit, the little boy, who
Winbush thouglit was his son announced that
he had another daddy. Although Winbush
never signed the birth certificate as the child's
father, he had made regular payment to the
mother and they shared custody of the boy.
The child spent two weekends per month and
often stayed during the week with him.
After the mother failed to answer some of
his questions, Winbush took the child for a
DNA to be sure. The results proved that he
was not the father. .
A few months later he was notified by the
State of Florida that he owed nearly $20,000
in back child support. He didn't have the
money so he went to jail. The fact that he
could prove through DNA that he was not the
father didn't make any difference to
anyone-not the judge, not the Department of
Children and Families or anyone else that
Winbush tried to convince.
The state continued to take
te could from $242 to $268 each
DNA month from Winbush's
t the paycheck.
t the pWinbush said the payments
nake any and the record of his going to
nyone-not jail have caused other
problems. "I can't get a
the house, I can't buy a new car
f Children without a big down payment.
This has done all sorts of
r anyone things to me and it doesn't
uish tried seem to be over yet. It's
devastating," he said.
"I'm just an ordinary
hardworking guy. That is a
lot of money for my family. I have a wife and
two other children. She's taking food out of
their mouths. All she had to do was say who
the real father is and stop taking money from
me," he said.
Even going to court Winbush knows it is
unlikely that he will get any of his money
back. "I don't know how I could have ever
gotten mixed up with a person like that. It's
about having a heart. How could she live a lie
like that for the rest of her life?" he asked.
"She had no right to do what she did to me.
It might not help me, but it's good that now
we have a law in Florida where this won't
happen to anyone else," he said.

Arbor Crest hopes to fill


affordable housing void

By Leslie Roberts Carol Park said she sees no problem in filling the 120 Park, manager of Arbor Crest Apartments, once
Times News Editor apartment uruni bheiri budil on CleV Street. workedd for the local office of the U.S Department of


Housing and Urban Development,
where she saw first-hand the
interest in affordable housing.
"I worked over there for years and
could not find (affordable)
housing," she said. "When
something like this comes in, it's
exciting for Gadsden County."
The apartment complex, which is
still under construction, is located
behind the Winn Dixie shopping
plaza in Quincy. On completion, it
will boast 120 apartments ranging
in size from a 650-square-foot, one-
bedroom, one-bath unit to a 1,090-
square-foot, three-bedroom, two-
bath apartment. Rent ranges from
around $500 to $725.
Park estimates the construction
will be finished by the end of
August. An open house is
scheduled for July 26 from 2-8 p.m.
"We have 12 apartments filled
already, and hope to have at least
60 more by the end of the month,"
Park said. "We've had people from
Havana and Tallahassee coming
here it's got everything you could
want."
Included in that everything is a
pool, a clubhouse, an exercise
room, a playground, a picnic area, a
library and a laundry facility.
Residents will be given security
cards that allow them access to the
gated community.
Apartment amenities include
high-energy, reverse cycle air-
conditioning, dishwashers, garbage
disposals, cable TV, kitchen
appliances and ceiling fans.


Need a place to stay? Gadsden County's got you covered


Motel business
booming in county

by Brian Dekle
Times Intern
Whether a traveler, displaced
evacuee, or local simply needing
some place other than home to
lay your head for the night,
Gadsden County has you
covered.
Local motel business is
booming, and although opinions
differ as to the reason, the fact
remains that Gadsden County is
home to more than its fair share
of motels at least one built
within the last year, and more to
come.
Besides the handful of
downtown Quincy and Havana
bed and breakfasts and motor
lodges, and the three motels
along Interstate 10 in Quincy and
Midway, three other motels a
Holiday Inn Express, Comfort
Inn and Suites, and another
undisclosed motel are under
construction in the interstate
areas of Quincy and Midway.
At least one other motel may be
on the drawing board for other
Gadsden County municipalities,
Greensboro in particular,
according to local motel
developers.
"We're excited to keep adding
to our tourism infrastructure, and
(the hotels) will bring more taxes
and more jobs for local


residents," David Gardner,
Gadsden County Chamber of
Commerce executive director,
says.
Gadsden motels .provide
hundreds of beds for weary
travelers, scores of jobs for local
residents, and this year is
projected to bring in $32,000
dollars in bed/tourism
development tax revenue.
Bed/tourism development tax in
Gadsden County is currently at
two percent and is added with
regular sales tax to the price of
each motel room.
County officials say the
department of revenue projects a
$1,000 increase in that figure
next fiscal year as the hospitality
industry grows in Gadsden
County.
Most local hotel businessmen
agree the sprawling growth of
Tallahassee accounts for much of
the recent expansion in the local
hotel industry. "For Midway, the
growth of Tallahassee is pouring
out that way. That's why we put
it (the Best Western) where we
did," Gadsden hotel owner
Hement Patel says.
Gadsden County's seasonal
agriculture industry, hurricane
evacuations and other factors
may also account for some of the
local hotel growth, Peter Patel,
another hotel owner, adds.
"I'm a native of Gadsden
County and I thought there were
needs for rooms for the tomato
crop workers, football season,
reconstruction in Mississippi and

Louisiana, and overflows from
Tallahassee and Marianna," he
says. All of the nearby areas have
filled up, and people are coming
this way. There's lots of homes
and other growth (coming in), so
there's a high demand for rooms
for construction people."
What the boom in hotel
construction will mean for the
future of Gadsden County
depends largely on growth in the
areas surrounding the hotels,
according to Hement Patel.
"It depends on whether or not
exponential growth is going to be

Arbor Crest is one of more than
37 affordable housing
developments built and managed
by the Carlisle Development
Group.
According to a Carlisle
Development press release, Lloyd
Boggio, the company's co-founder
and chief executive officer, served
as a board member for the Coalition
of Affordable Housing Providers
and was appointed by Gov. Jeb
Bush to the Affordable Housing
Study Commission, which advises
the Department of Community
Affairs in relation to the state's
affordable housing needs.
Park is quick to point out that
Arbor Crest is affordable housing,
not low-income. The minimum
acceptable annual salary for one
person hoping to rent a one-
bedroom apartment is $24,600; for
a family of six, the minimum
income requirement is $40,740 per
year.
The apartment manager sees the
complex as an answer to area
professionals' quest for a
convenient, affordable place to live
in Gadsden County.
"If you want a hamburger, you
can walk across the street to Burger
King. If you need groceries, we're
right next to Winn Dixie," she said.
"I hope people ride by on their
bikes one day and say, 'I wish I
lived there.'"

Crest, call 627-6499.

Dear Gadsden, Liberty & Calhoun
County Residents,
Three years ago I obtained my Florida
Dealer's License due to the frustration of
shopping for a used car. The following
three things made car shopping a big
headache for me:
*Haggling for the best price
*Having to come up with $2000 to $3000
for a down payment, taxes, title and tag


*Paying someone a $5000 $6000 profit
on a $10,000 automobile.
Here's what we've done at Direct
Automotive Wholesale:
*All vehicles are priced at the "Loan
Value", which is the price credit unions and
banks will loan you on this vehicle.
*We require NO DOWN PAYMENT on any
of our vehicles. We can even help with your
taxes and tag most of the time.


*At LOAN VALUE, we make a small Profit
and you get a great deal!
The best Part is we have family on the
lot, NOT HIGH PRESSURE SALES PEOPLE.
If you don't see the car of your dreams in
this ad, call us. We'll get you pre-approved,
tell you what it will cost and buy it for you.
We appreciate your supporting us. Come

When two partners, one living in Tallahassee and one on the Gulf Coast, looked for a perfect piece of real estate, they found it in Gadsden County. The Ponderosa is a
sprawling 450-acre retreat an uncommon country resort where Ralph Rish and Greg Preble relax.


By Leslie Roberts
Times News Editor
Rolling over Gadsden County's tumbling
hills like an early-morning fog, the Ponderosa
is a place where two men's daydream turned
tangible.
The sprawling private refuge was the
brainchild of Greg Preble and Ralph Rish,
who six years ago found in southern Gadsden
County what they saw as the perfect site for
an elegant, remote getaway.
At that time they ran Preble-Rish, the
engineering company they founded in 1991.
They worked as engineers on several Gadsden
County projects as well as on projects

He married Sidnah Flemmon

County to his farm in northern

early settlers of the area, including
Rev. and Mrs. McKeown and their
families. Everyone is cordially
invited to attend this meeting. For

and said in effect, "Moses, I have
a job for you to do. Your people
are being oppressed by the
Egyptians, and it is up to you to
deliver them. Then Moses replied
in essence, "Excuse me! Who am
I that I should go?" "Lord, I am
nobody in particular; I am here in
hiding from these very people
who are holding my people
captive. You're asking the wrong
man, Lord."
One of the great miracles
throughout
the ages
has been
the way in
which men
of little
apparent
ability have
been used
by God to ed
further his kingdom. Until God
calls them, such men have little
idea that they can be used it
never even occurs to them that
God can use them.
Gerald Kennedy wrote; "Our
greatness comes out of what we
stand for. How often have I seen
this in my ministry. I look at
ordinary people without
exceptional gifts whose lives
have become symbols of the
undying and the everlasting. This
is what Paul was talking about
when he wrote to the Ephesians;
"Therefore take the whole armor
of God, that.you may be able to
withstand in the evil day,' We
May be earthen vessels indeed,
but we have been given power to
incarnate greatness."
One man may not amount to
much; but one man plus God, that
is different! Dag Hammarskjod
said, "I don't know who or what -
put the questions. I don't know'
when it was put. I don't even
remember answering. But at
some moment I did answer yes to
someone and from that hour I
was certain that existence is
meaningful and that, therefore,
my life, in self-surrender, had a
goal. From that moment I have
known what it means not to look
back and to take no tough for
tomorrow.
If we ask the average man or
woman, "What are you living
for?" We will receive a variety of
answers, and few of them will
give an answer that implies that
existence is meaningful to them.
Only as we allow our light to
shine on others only as we find
life a medium of service, can life
have riealmeaning. The life that is
centered on self is empty and
meaningless.
I invite you to visit The Berean
Church located south of the old
high school building in
Chattahoochee. You may contact
Dr. Joyner at (850) 674-2633.

About


People and animals have lived together since the beginning of time. There are accounts of pets in the very first written works, including the
'", first book of the bible, as well as archaeological evidence showing that people kept pets from the very earliest of times. Cave drawings have been
discovered of people and their animals, mainly dogs or wolves. Pets have been companions to people for thousands of years. But have you ever asked 0
yourself, "Why do people have dogs and cats, or any other type of animal?" Well, if you yourself are a pet owner, then you probably know one of the easiest answers ,
to that question. Animals are great company and a lot of fun!! g
Before going to the grocery store or even farming to produce food, was part of daily life, people had to gather and hunt to provide food for their families. They kept
- pets, such as dogs, with them to help them hunt and to protect them from larger animals, such as wolves or other predators. Pets were also there to provide warmth*
during cold winters, and in return, the humans kept them fed during these harsh times. When farming became the more modern means of food production, animals
were kept as pets to help keep livestock herds on the farmer's land. It was not uncommon to have pet oxen to help plow the fields and sheepdogs to tend to flocks *
*e of sheep. As years progressed and the need for animals to provide physical labor decreased, their presence in the home as part of the family remained due to their #*
loyalty to their owners and their unconditionally loving nature. Animals provide company to lonely people, protection from intruders, give assistance to people with
*disabilities, and so much more! Though most people no longer need pets to help them live, they remain an important part of our lives. e
*# There are many other common pets, aside from the infamous and most common, the dog. Many people choose to have cats. Cats have been kept as pets for over,
# 5000 years. The first cats were domesticated in Egypt, and were an important part of Egyptian culture. Birds have also been around for almost 5000 years as pets. *
Egyptian records show that birds were a part of the domestic culture in Egypt, as well as in Ancient Greece. It was considered to be a sign of wealth and affluence to *
have a bird in Ancient Greece or Rome. Many famous rulers since then have been known to keep birds as pets. Goldfish have been a great part of Chinese culture,,
and have been known to be kept as pets in China for over a thousand years. Horses have also been domesticated and kept as pets for almost six thousand years, "#
but are believed to have been in contact with' people for a much greater length of time than this.
Before getting a pet, you should always remember that although they are great fun, they are also a huge responsibility. Pets need attention everyday, jus t like *
% people. It's important to properly feed them and to make sure they have plenty of water. They need to get exercise and be taken regularly to the vet for their check- *t
ups, or whenever they are sick. So before you or your family decides to get a pet, sit down and discuss which kind of pet is right for your lifestyle! When they are
properly cared for, pets can be one of the greatest joys in life! Kitty Look Alikes Pets G as sword Puzzle!

Thanks for your e-mail, Lauren! l
A The reason that veterinarians, or ve-s,
are such an important part of our lives, Draw a line from the food t e animal
is because they are the doctors that that would eat it
care for our sick animals. Vets attend a A M
total of 8 years of college, and then.< "

Lamb completes CCC training


Lamb completes CCC training


The Florida Association of
Counties (FAC) presented
Commissioner Eugene Lamb
with the Certified County
Commissioner (CCC) designation
following his. completion of a
comprehensive study program
developed by the association.
Commissioner Lamb received the.
designation along with 13 other
county commissioners June 28
during an awards ceremony held
at the FAC Annual Conference in
Marco Island.
CCC certification is not a
requirement to serve as a county
commissioner in Florida.
However, county commissioners
may voluntarily enroll in the
program and complete a series of
courses totaling 36 hours. The
coursework is designed to
provide information and enhance
skills relevant to a
commissioner's duties and


responsibilities as an elected
official.
"More than 130 county
commissioners across the state
have already earned the CCC
designation," FAC Executive
Director Chris Holley said. Their
participation in the program
serves as a testament to the
commitment of Florida's county
officials to make their
communities better places to live
and work."
The CCC program coursework
covers a variety of topics, such as
county government roles and
responsibilities, county
government structure and
authority, financial management,
ethics and sunshine law,
negotiation skills, economic
development, and effective
communication. Completion of
all coursework averages 18 to 24
months.

After returning to Quincy in
1993 and purchasing a home,
Fred made a personal
commitment to render service to
others and was immediately
employed by a private
corporation.
Hence, he served as the
Corporate Accounting Manager
for Fringe Benefits Management
Corporation (FBMC), and his
efforts to exceed the requirements
of this position were rewarded, as
evidenced by his promotion to
assistant vice president of
corporate accounting in 2004.
Anderson's primary role is to
ensure that tasks are completed in
accordance with established
departmental, state, and federal
guidelines with emphasis on
account analysis bank
reconciliation, payroll, account
receivables, and monthly
financial statements, to name a
few. 1
After demonstrating a high
degree of competency, Fred
Anderson was again promoted in
2006 to the position of Vice
President of FBMC. His
experience and- knowledge of
financial planning and reporting
can be attributed to his
professional foundations
established while employed with
private corporations prior to his
returning to Gadsden County.
Fred is an active member of St.
John A.M.E. Church of Quincy,
the Gadsden County Men of
Action, and the Florida Institute
of Certified Public Acc6untants.
He has been married to Millie
Evans Anderson, an administrator
in the Gadsden County School
System, for the past 26 years and
is the proud father of two lovely
daughters Miracle (age 16) and
Destiny (age 7). He attributes his
success to the blessings and favor
of God.

the road only by its high fences and
the few fallow deer that cruise the
property's perimeter from time to
time.
One deciding factor for Preble in the
purchase of the property was its
sandy-bottomed creeks, which feed
Bear Creek.
"I just like the way they look," he
said. "Sometimes I get a cold drink
and sit and watch them it's nice.
They're more inviting than muddy
creeks."
A four-wheeler tour of the property
proves his point: wide, clear creeks set
at intervals throughout the preserve
provide a welcome break in the
landscape as well as suitable spots for
contemplation.
Hilly, dirt roads most easily traversed
by four-wheelers lead those touring
thp property to hidden pastures where
deer, sheep, Watusi and antelope graze
and where feeders draw them
routinely to the same spots.
The high woven-wire fences are as
much for keeping the outside world
out as they are for keeping the animals
inr, Preble says, and aid in making the
locale a secure family retreat.
"We wanted a place that was private
and kind of secluded," he said.


obituAiruesi


Sandy-bottom creeks that wander throughout The Po'nderosa were among the draws of this piece of Gadsden
County that drew Preble and Rish to the site.

Gonzalez tapped as Florida's "Migrant Success Story of the Year"


by Brian Dekle
Times Intern

A Gadsden County migrant
teacher's story of overcoming
unbelievable odds and becoming
an educator earned him top state
honors last year, but not before
another incredible obstacle nearly
robbed him of his job and his life.
Guillermo Gonzalez, whose
numerous roles include West
Gadsden High School Spanish
teacher, migrant youth mentor,
adult English as a second
language teacher and more, is the
man behind the Florida
Department of Education's
"Migrant Success Story of the
Year" for 2005.
Just before school officials
could let him know of his
prestigious title last year,
however, a severe car. accident
left Gonzalez bed-ridden and in
severe pain for more than six
months.
Only recently did Gonzalez, still
wheelchair bound, learn of his
award at an emotional surprise
assembly program last week at
George Munroe Elementary
School.
"I was shocked and partly
confused. I thought, 'It's not my
birthday so something must be
going on,'" Gonzalez said of the
surprise gathering, at which
hundreds of migrant students
applauded and cheered the 28-
year-old educator.


"I want to give thanks to all you
guys," a tearful Gonzalez told the
young Hispanic students. "I just
want to motivate you guys to do
well in school. I was a migrant
student once too, and I didn't
speak a word of English. My
parents were migrant workers,
and I remember going out into the
hot fields."
For weeks school officials, led
by English as a Second Language
(ESOL) Coordinator Maria
Pouncey, quietly planned the
assembly, keeping Gonzalez in
the dark about its actual purpose.
Pouncey also kept news of
Gonzalez's award secret for
almost a year because, she says, it
wasn't "the right time," given the
recent wreck that nearly cost
Gonzalez his beloved teaching
career.
But a driven Gonzalez bounced
back when many in his position
would have just thrown in the
towel. He admits, however, it
hasn't been easy.
"It was a struggle at first. I was
in pain and, on bed rest for six to
eight months with a fractured
pelvis. The motivation (to come
back to teaching) came from my
students, family and friends. I
was surprised because I got so
many get-well cards from
students. My friends said, 'You
can do it, Guillermo,'" he recalls.
Right now I can't walk, so it's
double work and a different
lifestyle. But at home I'd be


bored. I like getting out and
working with kids. Just because
I'm temporarily disabled, that
shouldn't keep me from doing
what I like."
Gonzalez's near-fatal accident
is by no means his "first rodeo,"
however. The Hispanic teacher
has been beating the odds nearly
his entire life, beginning in the
sweltering fields of Texas and
Florida.
As a child Gonzalez watched
his parents, who had little formal
education and were unable to
communicate in English, work
day. after day as unskilled
laborers, picking produce and
struggling to make ends meet.
The toll the grueling, thankless
hours of field labor took on his
parents deeply impacted
Gonzalez, and he aspired to have
a better future with more options.
"As a teenager people. would
say, 'Your parents work all day in
the fields. You should graduate to
make them proud,'" Gonzalez
recalls.
Make them proud he did,
finishing high school with honors
and going on to Florida State
University with dreams of
becoming an accountant.
Eventually, after becoming a
mentor to migrant students
through the Americorp program,
Gonzalez decided to follow a
different path.
"I worked with migrant students
for four years, and I enjoyed

of the Year" award.


teaching them basic English,
technology and other things. It
felt good inside. Doing what I did
during those summers led me in
that (teaching) direction, even
though at first I wanted to be an
accountant," Gonzalez says.


. Through financial struggles, his
parents' illnesses and father's
subsequent death, Gonzalez
trudged on and earned a college
degree and soon signed on as a
Spanish teacher with WGHS.
Gonzalez says he plan's to


continue doing what he does best
- teaching and mentoring adults,
teenagers and younger children -
no matter what curve balls life
may throw him, while working on
a master's in secondary
education.

at the FAMU Research Farm in Quincy recently.


FACE students learn agriculture, make money

Chris Brown didn't know what
he. was going to do with himself
this summer. "If I didn't get a job
I was going to sit around the
house play video games and
probably do nothing," he said. All
that changed when Tameka
Bronson, his guidance counselor,
suggested he sign up for the
Forestry and Conservation
Education (FACE) summer
program.
He could make a little money
too. The program, which lasts
from June 7-30, pays students
$150 if they attend every day.
The program is designed to
teach students a little about
several subjects during the three
weeks they are in the program.
"We've already learned about fire
management, water management,
GPS mapping and today we're
learning about mutant corn.
We've also taken a few field
trips," Brown said.,
The public was also invited out
to the FAMU Research farm to
learn maize genetics as well as
mutant corns and how it affects
plants. The Maize-10-Maze
project was designed to promote


public interest and awareness.
About 100 people showed up to
learn about corn and mutation.
Friday's event was a
collaborative effort presented by
Dr. Hank Bass of Florida State
University's Department of
Biological Sciences and Dr.
Kome Onokpise and Dreamal
Worthen of the College of
Engineering Sciences,
Technology, and Agriculture at
Florida A & M University.
Brown and fellow members of
the FACE Program took the
sweltering morning heat in stride.
Brown and others said they
thought the program was held in
air conditioned classrooms. "It's
okay, we're learning a lot. More
than I would normally know, but
it's hot," said 13-year-old Jade
Elizabeth Walker of Tallahassee.
Students, well rehearsed in the
different types of mutant corn,
were happy to tell visitors about
the various corns and lead them
on a tour in the patch that
included lazy corn, zebra corn,
ghost corn, rolled corn, purple
corn, knotted corn, wrinkled corn
and other varieties.
Marquis Brown, 15, of
Monticello explained the process
of genome sequencing as a tool to


helping scientists understand the
functions of individual genes and
how they interact with other
organisms.
"There were a lot of things that
I learned in biology class that
came back to me. The things we
have talked about like DNA and
base pairs. I wish I had paid more
attention in class now," he said.
A few feet away from the corn
demonstration, Dr. Gilbert
Queely was talking hot peppers,
sorrel and herbs. Martha Beavers,
Bernice Black, and Earnest Fields
were paying close attention. "I
am a home gardener and I love all
kinds of hot peppers," Beavers
said.
Queely gave anyone who
wanted to try his hand at growing
peppers and sorrel samples. "I
think I am going to run out. I only
brought 35 large habaneros and I
may not have enough. I didn't
think this many people would
come out today," he said. Anyone
who did not get peppers Friday is
welcome to come to FAMU's
School of Agriculture and Queely
said they will be giving away
plants until July 15. *
"This area is excellent for
growing peppers," he said.


Planning for your life after high
school is often a very tedious and
soul- searching process.
However, through a partnership
