People throughout the Big Bend
area were stunned by the sudden
death of Midway City
Councilman Louis J. Parker Jr.
Saturday.
' Parker, 45, died Saturday at
9:55 a.m. at Capital Regional
Medical Center in Tallahassee
after a trip to the emergency
ioom earlier in the week for
treatment of diabetes-related

County dumps insurance agent


Approves referendum
for half cent sales tax
for health care

by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
The Gadsden County Board of
Commissioners decided Tuesday they
didn't want Pat Thomas Insurance &


Associates Insurance Agency as its agent
any more.
The issue came up during a regular
meeting Tuesday night as the board
debated keeping the agency on.
County Manager Marlon Brown told
commissioners that premiums are on the
rise and that in some cases coverage has
decreased. In an effort to save money,
commissioners said that no agent was
needed to "look" at the premiums and
decided to drop the agency from that


chore.
"Can't we do that ourselves?" asked
Commission Chairman Ed Dixon.
"Yes," Brown said.
Commissioner Eugene Lamb said he
preferred to stay with the Thomas
Agency.
"They are in this county and they give a
lot back to this county," Lamb said.
Dixon, however, sees the move as a cost-
cutting measure for the county.
"This is not a competition. Pat Thomas


is simply cut out as the middle man and
the county saves $10,000," said Dixon.
In Dixon's opinion, the agency could
have better served the county by bringing
commissioners ways to save money and
ways to better serve the county's needs.
He criticized the agency for not taking a
more proactive stance.
"You just told me the agency should
have been doing things for us they're not
doing. They should be up here with

The reserve officers who volunteer with the Gadsden County Sheriff's Office help out as patrolmen,
bailiffs, transport officers, escorts, and a myriad of other tasks that free full-time deputies to
concentrate on other matters.


Experienced help: priceless!


26 reserve officers donate more than time


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
They look like deputies. They act like deputies.
They work like deputies, but the major difference
between regular sworn deputies in the Gadsden
County Sheriff's Office and reserves is that reserves
don't get paid and they must work a minimum of 16
hours per month.
In the past year they have saved the office
thousands of dollars and have performed duties that
would otherwise, have required officers to log
overtime hours.
Sheriff Morris Young says he appreciates the 26
reserve officers and what they do. "I'm short two or
three deputies now and they are a big help to this
office," he said. He met with the officers last
Wednesday night to thank them personally for all of
the hours they have contributed to the department.
All of the reserves do not limit their hours. David
Thomas, who serves as a bailiff, can be found in the
local courthouse every day.: He has been a reserve
for the past three years after retiring from the
Florida Department of Corrections.
"I'm here in the courthouse almost everyday. I like
working with the people, and I like working with
the judges and juries," he said.
Other reserves, like James Dennard, have been in
law enforcement all of their professional lives. After


30 years he retired from the Florida Department of
Law Enforcement. He worked briefly as a full-time
detective before calling in quits again.
Joining the reserves was the best of both worlds
for Dennard. "I can still stay connected with law
enforcement, but I still have the time to enjoy my
retirement," he said.
Just last week Dennard was sent to New York to
bring a prisoner back to Gadsden County. The
GCSO would have been required to pay overtime if
a regular deputy had made the trip.
"Where ever they fill in, it's certainly a help to the
Sheriff's budget," said Katherine Pondexter, finance
director, who estimates reserves save the county
approximately $60,000 per year.
Each reservist has state of Florida law
enforcement certification. The certification is a
prerequiste to becoming a reserve officer. To keep
their state certification, reserves are required to
serve the minimum 16 hours per month, but,
typically, officers like Thomas will work more than
the required hours.
Another important unit is the escort unit,
supervised by James Peterson and Lindsey
Anderson. The two are responsible for making sure
the reserves are in place and that enough officers are
available for funeral processions. Reserves are
present at local festivals, athletic events, and at

$3,600 car
allowance item for
department heads
removed

by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
Employees were front and
center in the tentative 2006-2007
budget, presented at a Monday
night budget workshop by Davin
Suggs. If you are employed by
the Board of County
Commissioners, there's a good
chance that you will get a $2,600
raise next year.
"The focus was to do something
about compensation. We did a
survey, and we were not as
competitive as we would like to
be," Suggs said. He added the
county needs a major job
classification study and that
$2,600 has been set aside to pay
for the study.
The $2,600 raise will not extend
to department heads. Suggs said
the raise will take care of the
lowest paid employees. The
$2,600 raise, he said, will mean
more to a person making $20,000
a year that it would to a person
making $50,000 a year.
He recommended that
department heads get a $300-per-
month car allowance but it was
removed from the. budget
recommendation.
Dollars for training are also in
the budget. Commission
Chairman Ed Dixon said he
wants to see employees trained to
move up in the system to increase
both their knowledge and earning
power. "We should be bringing
employees in at the lowest
levels." he said.
"We talk about public works all
the time because they have the
largest number of employees. I
don't want to see them languish
into those situations. I don't care
who you are, you ought not be a
custodian for more than three
years. You ought to be pushing
those people up," Dixon told
Marlon Brown, county manager.
Suggs said while the
Emergency Management Service
has doubled the amount of
money it spends on fuel, the
county still only gives them
about $400,000 per year. "They
have their own fee structure," he
said,. adding the state will
purchase another ambulance for
the service, and three additional
employees will be hired.
In terms of raising more
revenues for the county, Brown
said this is the year for studies.
"We are going to find out where
we need to raise fees," he said.


But both Dixon and
Commissioner Brenda Holt said
some fees need to, be raised
almost immediately. The county,
they said, is growing rapidly and
impacting inspectors.
Commissioner Holt also
suggested the county take a look
at raising charges for animal
retrieval. Citing a citizen who
called animal control to remove a
snake from her kitchen cabinets,
Holt said she thought the woman
should be required to pay extra
for the service.
Other commissioners weren't
so convinced that citizens should
pay for one type of animal and
not pay for another. A rabid dog,
they said, is equally, if not more
dangerous, than certain types of
snakes.
Katherine Pondexter, finance
director for the Gadsden County
Sheriff's Office, said the sheriff
would like to get all of the
deputies up to a salary of $30,000
per year and corrections officers
up to $28,000 per year.
Commissioners promised to do
what they could to help the
sheriff, but not before Dixon
reminded her that in the past the
BOCC gave the sheriffs office
money for deputy raises that they
never received.
"I promise you that the money
will go where it is intended to
go," Pondexter said
In other matters, commissioners
discussed the immediate family
exempt subdivision. "We will try
to arrive at the best possible
solution, but we will not be able
to address your individual
situations tonight," Dixon said.
As he explained it, the genesis
of the ordinance grew out of
requests from elderly citizens
who owned land and wanted to
give part of it to their children so
they could move back to care for
them. That has changed, and the
family exemption has "grown
into something we didn't expect,"
he said.
As time changed, he said, even
trying to figure out who is an
immediate family member has
become confusing. Once the
exemption is granted, the county
then has no way of making sure
that family members remain on
the land approved for exemption.
"We have no way to enforce
anything," Dixon said.
Unable to take any action
Monday night, commissioners
asked William McCord, growth
and management director, to
develop several scenarios and ask
the Planning and Zoning
Commission to make future
recommendations on the
ordinance.

Bear Creek Educational Forest is haven for trees and learning


492-acre forest and
preserve contains
pristine examples of
local fauna and has
drawn more than
1,300 visitors

by Leslie Roberts
Times News Editor
Ice cream, toothpaste and
shampoo all are made from
products derived from trees.
That's just one of many tidbits
visitors to the Bear Creek
Educational Forest can expect to
pick up during a visit to the site,
just south of Quincy on Pat
Thomas Parkway.
More than 1,300 area residents,
many of them children on field
trips, have visited since the
opening of a new classroom in
December. The 492-acre forest is
part of the Lake Talquin State
Forest and is managed by the
Florida Department of
Agriculture and Consumer
Services Division of Forestry.


"This was a 10-year project,"
kIaren Weigelt, Bear Creek
forester, said. "It is the first
educational facility run by the
division of forestry in the state."
The site was owned by Frank
Pittman in the 1960s and served
as a nature park. It later served as
a training area for the Pat Thomas
Law Enforcement Academy
before the state bought it.
Trees found in the forest
include native longleaf pine,
spruce pines, pyramid magnolia
trees, dogwood, tulip poplars and
Florida maple.
The air-conditioned classroom
at Bear Creek seats 60, as does
the adjacent picnic shelter.
Visitors can choose from 12
guided, day-long programs that
are offered at no cost and led by
Weigelt and forester Todd
Ireland.
"This is such a diversely treed
property it's a good place to show
people the different species,"
Weigelt said. "This really is to
teach people about forestry, to get
the word out about it so there
aren't so many misconceptions
and to help people realize how
important forest management is."


Take the "Water Wonder"
program; participants get to pick
between playing the role of a
macroinvertebrate or pollution in
a game in which the two entities
vie for dominance.
It is, Weigelt said, a popular
class.
Another popular choice is the
ecosystem exploration class, in
which students compare pond to
forests to fields.
People from ages 10-75
participate, Weigelt said.
"We're looking at developing a
curriculum teachers can take with
them back to the classroom," she
said. "We can adjust the classes
to almost any age, and coordinate
them with what kids are learning
in school."
Gadsden County 4-H agent
Yolanda Goode said she
anticipates making use of the
facility for 4-H participants
during the upcoming school year.
"It's designed for education, it's
contained and it's hands-on,"
Goode said. "Kids can get a
better' feel for the environment
and learn how to protect it. It is a
tool I plan to use."

Businesses prepare for hurricanes

at Red Cross trading exercise


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

When hurricanes strike, not only are homes
affected, but many businesses as well. Last week,
Chris Floyd from the American Red Cross and Ray
Hawthorne, a metrologist for WCTV channel 6,
conducted a half-day exercise to prepare businesses
for the next hurricane or any disaster.
Called a business tabletop exercise, about 40
business and government representatives discussed
what to do and what not to do in case of a disaster.
Teams discussed simulated planning and
preparedness situations to determine if the action
they decided to take is correct.
What if a storm hits while most of your employees
are to be at work? Would you allow employees, who
may live in mobile homes,' to use the business as a
shelter? Do you pay employees who can't get to the
job after a disaster? What is your back-up plan once
the storm has passed?
"These are all things that you have to think about
and be prepared for. It's too late to think about it
once the disaster happens," Floyd said.
One exercise asked representatives to determine
what they would do if a family or individual in need
showed up at a business seeking shelter from the
storm. "Would you turn them away?" Floyd asked.
"The humanitarian .part .of me says no," answered
Frances Klisiewrez, director of'operations at Tri-
Eagle. Sales,,.where the exercise was held. The
question then became legal. Realistically, Floyd
said, people like to sue. "People might sue if you
don't allow them to come in and then go down the
road and get hurt, or they might sue if you let them
in and the roof flies off and they get hurt," said
another participant.
"There are no right or wrong answers in this case.
The good thing is that Florida has a very strong
good samaritan law," Floyd said. The law does not
allow lawsuits if the individual acts in good faith to
help or protect another human being.
The representatives were told that getting the
business up and running again could be another
challenge. "If you have employees who have small
children, they might not be able to come to work.


Remember, schools and daycare centers will be
closed. It may be a week or more before some
people are able to get power. What are you going to
do?" Floyd asked.
Maj. Shawn Wood of the Gadsden County
Sheriff's Office and the director of emergency
management said his office had conducted a self-
evaluation, and the issue had been addressed. "I
remember (Hurricane) Kate and Kate was a disaster.
Everyone has to be involved. We've brought in
Talquin (to Emergency Management meetings) and
that is a good thing," he said.
With so many trees in the area the question was
posed to Brian Rowan, representing Talquin
Electric, whether or not Talquin could be proactive
and cut trees down that might be a problem during a
storm. Tree removal can cost upwards of $1,500
each.
"Actually, it's cheaper to replace the wires than to
remove the tree," Rowan said. Plus, the question
runs into the liability of trees on private property.
Following the half-day exercise, Floyd made his
own evaluation.
"My biggest concern is that Gadsden County will
not be ready," Floyd said.
Florida, he said, is not going to be the "gimme"
state anymore when storms hit. "If there is a store
open within ten miles of you, you will have to go
,buy food and water:-' .. : .,.*- ... .. :'.,. .
"The points distributionrrhas'changed. You've'got to
be prepared. Last .e.! u in souih Flon.i ,there \cere
76 points of distribution open; under the new rules
there would only be 20 open now." he said.
The change in attitude came when Gov. Bush was
at a point of distribution and people were driving up
in luxury cars getting free food and water while a
Publix Supermarket was open for business across
the street, according to Floyd.
He reiterated the fact that people need to be
prepared, and businesses have to take the time to
inform employees. Local supermarkets only have a
six or seven-day supply of food on hand at any
given time. "I have stocked up so my wife and
daughter will be okay for a while, everyone needs to
do the same," Floyd said.


I attended the public schools of
Gadsden County and graduated
from James A. Shanks High
School in 1980. I continued my
education at the University of
Florida and Edward Waters
College, where I graduated with a
bachelor's in criminal justice.
Upon graduation, I was
employed by State Representative
Corrine Brown as a legislative
assistant. I continued in her
employment as she became the
United States representative for
the Third Congressional District
of Florida. There I served as the
area director for her Duval
County office.
I worked for six years with the
Florida House of Representatives
and three years with the Third
Congressional District of Florida.
Working in these ar6as has
afforded me the opportunity to
work and negotiate with mayors,
city and county council tjiembers,
sheriffs, police chiefs, labor
union liaisons, state
representatives, state senators, as
well as congressional members.
The skills gained from these
positions make possibilities for

Ole Red really

made a statement


Robert Bryant passed away last week. I
was out of town at a family reunion when
he died. I hadn't been home ten minutes
when I got the call. "Coach, I'm sorry, I
thought you knew......"
I could hear Adrian still talking but my
mind had shifted to 1970. I don't remember
now exactly how I found my way to the St.
Joe Sluggers.....and the baseball field with
the beautiful old concrete block walls down
by the rail road tracks. Robert met me with
a handshake and a smile, "They say you
can pitch." He said it like he wouldn't
believe it till he could see for himself.
But the smile was so genuine I knew he
was o. k. at first glance.
"You a real baseball man or did you just
come over to play a little bit?"
Well, I had no answer for that! I wasn't
about to tell him that I had played in every
sandlot, cow pasture, side yard, raked out
cotton patch and bottom forty from the
banks of the Green River up in Kentucky to
Frog Jump, Tennessee. I had even played
in a few places that actually had a fence,
real bases and a grandstand. I remember
when Ray Jablonski was a rookie third
baseman with St. Louis. I was still mad at
the Yankees for their comeback in the '58
World Series. I jumped ten feet high when
Mazaroski's blow cleared the left field wall
in old Forbes Field. Every day as the sun
comes up I see stitches on it....
"Mr. Robert," he looked a tad older than
me, and I didn't start calling him Red until
a week-end or so later, "I sure do like to
feel that wind on my face when I round
first...."
He waved a hand and smiled some more.
He understood that answer!
I pitched in that first game. He caught.
For a little bit on the older side he moved
around pretty good back there. He could
block my pitches in the dirt. And he didn't
hold the mitt right in the middle of the
plate. He worked the corners. He knew
when to bring the heat up and in and he
knew when it was time for Uncle Charlie
down and away. I didn't say nothing,


naturally, but it didn't take a half an inning
to realize this wasn't the first time Robert
Bryant had squatted down back there.
The very next Sunday he pitched 4nd I
caught. Amazing! He didn't have the speed
I bet he once had but he could still get
batters out. He had a little cut fastball or
slurve and a big overhand breaking ball.
But most importantly, he knew when to
throw what. He'd shake me off a few times
early in that game but it didn't take long
for us to get into sync.
We played some serious baseball for
several summers.
Perry had a heck of a team back then.
They would come over for a Sunday
afternoon game and Robert would "run
down the hitters" for me. "The second
baseman leads off. He will bunt on you.
And he likes the ball inside. We'll keep it
away from him. The left fielder bats
second. He can hit the fastball. We are
going to curve him all day. The little third
baseman is next. He's their best hitter. If
he's got a weakness it is up and in. But if
you don't get it inside....he will hit it on
one of those trains out there! The first
baseman is their clean-up hitter. Another
guy we will use the breaking ball on......"
It was amazing! I had suited up for
college tournaments and we didn't have
scouting reports as accurate. Robert didn't
just show up-he came to play. There is a
big difference!
I never will forget my first road game to
Ebro. Their big left-hander threw the first
pitch of my first at bat right at my head. I
scrambled to get out of the way. I had
barely dusted myself off before his next
pitch came boring right in on me again. I
sprawled on my back side to escape the
incoming missile. I was the only white guy
on our team and I reckon this pitcher was
"sending me a message". Actually, on this
day, I was the only white guy in the park! I
never paid much, attention to it. And I
wasn't trying to make a statement. I just
wanted to play baseball. None of my

Half penny tax helps pay

for hope in Gadsden County


Gadsden County Commissioners
Tuesday made a move toward
securing adequate healthcare for the
uninsured and the underinsured
residents of the county.
Commissioners voted to approve
putting a half-cent sales tax on the
Nov. 7 ballot. The tax, proposed by
members of the Gadsden County
Health Council, is expected to raise
$1.3 million that will go toward
providing healthcare to the estimated
10,000 uninsured or underinsured
here.
A lot of those folks have families
and hold jobs. They're not making a
lot of money, but they don't qualify
for programs like Medicaid for one'
reason or another.
The Health Council, comprised of
lay community members, local
public health officials, local
government officials, community-
based organizations, Tallahassee
academic institution representatives
and state representatives, has worked
over the past few years to put
together not only a needs
assessments for the county but a
comprehensive plan to meet those
needs.
It came up with a list of four initial
components for its strategic plan: To


improve Gadsden County's neo-natal
and infant survival and health; to
reduce the incidence of sexually-
transmitted disease in the county; to
increase the healthy lifestyle choices
of residents that will lessen the
incidence of preventable, life-
threatening diseases such as
tuberculosis, type 2 diabetes, stroke,
cancer and heart disease; and to
increase the availability of local
health services for the uninsured and
underinsured of the county.
The Council also proposes a
comprehensive healthcare plan that
would bring more doctors to the
county and contract with primary
care doctors' offices in Quincy,
Chattahoochee, Greensboro, Gretna,
Havana and Midway.
The We Care Network a group of
315 or so volunteer doctors
sponsored by the Capital Medical
Society Foundation will help
coordinate specialty care: surgery,
follow-up diagnostics, lab work,
case management and x-rays for
patients at or below 100 percent of
the federal poverty level.
Half a penny's not much of a price
to pay for improvements that have
the power to change people's lives
for the better.

Deciding for ourselves

how to grow

Dear Editor:
The Florida Supreme Court has said voters in
2008 can decide on a constitutional amendment
that would give citizens the final say on growth
and development decisions.
Instead of living at the mercy of a handful of
commissioners, citizens will be able to decide for
themselves good or bad how they want their
communities to grow by a referendum. But this
won't happen unless Florida voters step forward
right now.
The grassroots group working to get this
amendment on the ballot is Florida Hometown
Democracy. Organizers are working across the
state to get enough registered voters to sign a
petition to get the amendment on the ballot. Their
website is like a breath of fresh air!
For more information, go to the website
www.FloridaHometownDemocracy.com. You can
download a petition with instructions. You can
also write Florida Hometown Democracy, Inc.,
P.O. Box 636, New Smyrna Beach, Fla. 32170 or
phone 561-659-5754.
If elected officials had been more reserved in
approvals and developers less greedy, this group
wouldn't exist. It will be interesting when
developers have to convince an electorate of a
county or city that their proposal is a marvelous
idea, rather than a majority of puppets sitting on a
board.

The Boyd

Report


Protecting our
right to vote

By Congressman Allen Boyd
This week, Congress voted to
reauthorize the historic Voting
Rights Act of 1965. One of the
most significant pieces of
legislation enacted during the
20th century, the Voting Rights
Act helped guarantee one of our
most fundamental rights the
right of every citizen to
participate in the political
process.
The right to choose one's
representatives in the voting
booth is the basis of a free,
democratic society. Without a
meaningful vote, there can be no
equality before the law, no equal
access, and no equal opportunity.
Yet, for a hundred years after the
Civil War, millions of African-
Americans were denied this
fundamental right, despite the
15th Amendment to the
Constitution that prohibited the
denial of the right to vote on the
basis of race or color. Poll taxes,
literacy tests, and even physical
violence were used to deny
African-Americans their legal
right to vote.
Signed into law by President
Lyndon Johnson on August 6,
1965, the Voting Rights Act
provides extensive protection to
minority communities by
ensuring that the right to vote is
fully protected. The success of
the Voting Rights Act has led to
significant political achievement
and greater minority
representation at all levels of
government. The
reauthorization of this landmark
bill demonstrates our continued
determination to remove all
voting obstacles and safeguard
the rights of all Americans.
Since 1965, the Voting Rights
Act has been extended five times,
first in 1970, then in 1975, 1982,
1992, and now 2006. Changes
have included the requirement of
bilingual ballots and voting
assistance, thereby increasing the
act's scope to cover non-English
speaking minorities. In 1982,
the Voting Rights Act was
amended to protect the rights of
voters with disabilities. The
most recent extension this year
reauthorized for 25 years key
provisions of the Voting Rights
Act that were set to expire in
2007. These provisions prevent
discriminatory voting practices
and require bilingual ballots for
those with limited English
proficiency. Our nation's
history is one of expanding
rights, and it is imperative that
we adjust our laws to reflect that.
The Voting Rights Act was one
of the nation's most crucial civil
rights victories and memorializes
those who marched, struggled,
and died to secure the right to
vote for all Americans. While
substantial progress has been
made in the area of voting rights
over the last 40 years, we must
continue to create a more just,
fair, and equal society. This
week's vote shows our
commitment to this goal. I am
proud that Congress agreed to
reauthorize important provisions
of the Voting Rights Act so that
this act can continue to protect
the most fundamental expression
of equality in our democracy:
the right to vote.


'Non Profit' is self-defeating tag


Dear Alice:
I have a pet peeve to share with you in the
hope that you'll agree we need to make a
big change in the way we speak about
organizations dedicated to serving families
and our communities.
Here's my pitch.
I think using the terms "non-profit" and
"not-for-profit" to introduce organizations
is both negative and self-defeating. Yes, I
know, the legal 501C-3 classification under
the Internal Revenue Code is "not-for-
profit," and I am not advocating changing
that language on financial documents like
990 forms and other official forms.
But my question is 'why should
organizations accentuate the negative when
they.have so much opportunity to
emphasize the positive contributions they


make to quality of life?'
Identifying organizations by what they're
not is like introducing yourself by saying,
"I'm not Joe" or "I'm not Maria" or "I'm
not Jamal." I think it's smarter to say who
we are, what our name and purpose is, and
what we stand for. We should not confuse
others by speaking with negative language.
Many people don't know the intricacies
of operating and managing these important
organizations, and their hearing "non-rofit"
gives them the false assumption that no one
is paid, the effort is totally voluntary, and
there are no costs associated with the
group's work. This may seem extreme, but
trust me, there are assumptions which are
fed by the inaccuracy of the term "non-
profit."
See NON PROFIT on Page 12


We're looking for a few good opinions. Any topic.
Write us a letter to the editor. Send it to PO Box 790,
Quincy, 32353 or e-mail to gctimes@comcast.net

Drag safe through
store, but couldn't
get it through hole

by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor


How dumb were the crooks who
robbed the Concord Country
Store Sunday morning and only
took about 10 percent of the


money?
They were so dumb that after
they stole the safe, dragged it
through the store to the back, beat
in the safe to get it open and
finally tried to get in through a
hole that was too small.
They were so upset when they
realized they couldn't pull the
safe through the ceiling they
simply grabbed money apparently
laying on a top shelf and took off.
According to a report on file
with the Gadsden County


Sheriff's Office, about 8 a.m. last
Sunday owners of the store called
to report a burglary at the store on
Concord Road near Havana.
Sure enough, someone had
entered the store through the roof
and removed the safe from the
office. The safe was then dragged
to the rear of the store close to
where the burglars made it
through an exhaust vent.
Looking down from the roof,
deputies and the storeowners had
a clear view of the safe. But wait,


The Florida budget, recently signed by Governor
Jeb Bush, included more than $31 million assigned
to expand and improve local parks across the state.
Funded through the Department of Environmental
Protection's (DEP) Florida Recreation Development
Assistance Program (FRDAP),
$581,500 will go to Gadsden County to assist three
local park projects and enhance nearby communities
by increasing outdoor recreation opportunities and
improving public access to Florida's natural
resources.
"Recreation areas play an important role in
Florida's economy, drawing both residents and
visitors to the state's natural resources," Governor
Jeb Bush said. "Through grant funding from the
state, counties throughout Florida have the
opportunity to expand and improve parks."
Gadsden County projects funded in this year's
budget include:
* Sawdust Park, Gadsden County The grant
money will be used on a picnic pavilion, exercise
trail, gazebo, playground, restrooms, lighting,
parking, baseball field and basketball court
renovations.

He said he has seen agents for
other local governments bring

he said, adding, "keep CHP and
look at another agent," when
told that the county's insurance

it may be too late to shop around

Depot preservation back on


by Leslie Roberts
Times News Editor

Greensboro's 100-year-old train depot will
sit in the same spot for at least another 100
days.
After that, it'll move on down the line but
not far.
Progress Energy spokesman C.J. Drake said
Monday the company has agreed to extend its
deadline to move the building from Aug. 31
to Oct. 31. Progress will also kick in $35,000
to help finance the move.
In addition, West Gadsden Historical
Society President Lynne Poucher says she
was able to negotiate a land donation from the
St. Joe Land Company to use as the depot's
final resting place. The lot is near the

almost any public event where security may be
required.
"It can get kind of sticky, especially with funerals.
If one family has an escort and another does not,
they want to know why," Young said. He told the
officers that there is an almost constant need for
them to help out on weekends. "We really count on
these officers," he said.
Capt. Robert Barkley, who-is directly repsonsible
for the unit, told Young that the reserves are a
dedicated group of people who have never let him
down. "They are doing a good job. We're looking
forward to the neighborhood patrolling," he said.
By mid-August, when the sheriff's office gets new
vehicles, reserves will be allowed to have a take-
home vehicle.
Barkley and Young agree that the presence of a
marked vehicle in neighborhoods will help deter
crime. "Just that vehicle parked in the yard will let
the person thinking about committing a robbery or
some other crime know that law enforcement is in
the immediate area," Barkley said.
Young also wants to reward officers who exceed
the requirement. He told them that while budget
constraints prohibit him this fiscal year, he hopes to
set aside some money in the future for the officers
who exceed the minimum hours.
Dave Dempsey would welcome a little extra
income, but that's not why he is a reserve. "I joined
because I want to give back to this community," he
said. Dempsey has lived in Gadsden County for the
past four years, moving here from Daytona Beach
after 21 years on the police force and 10 years with
the Department of Insurance's Fraud Division. He is
currently a special agent for the National Insurance
Crime Bureau.
"In my case after so many years (in law
enforcement) you have that feeling of loss," he said.
Pamela Anderson, the only female reservist at this
time, said she also wanted to give back to the
community. The mother of two, is a security officer
at the local Social Security office.
Both Quincy Fire Chief Howard Smith and
Assistant Fire Chief Buddy Peddie are both reserve


intersection of Duffle Street and Selman
Avenue in Greensboro.
A St. Joe spokeswoman was unable to
confirm details of the transaction Tuesday.
"Plans are to just let it sit there for a while
until we can get it restored," Poucher said.
"It's a long-term project."
Poucher said she'd like to see the building
turned into an art gallery at some point.
"It's on the Florida Arts Trail," she said. "So
that'd be nice."
Although renovations through the years
have changed its look, and it hasn't served as
an Apalachicola Northern Line depot for
decades, the depot, built in the early 1900s,
still has merit as far as members of the local
Historical Society are concerned.
"It's the last remaining from the A & N line

officers. They wanted to maintain their 'police
certification. "It's easier to maintain the certification
than it is to get it. We ride along with deputies or we
go out and do community policing," Peddie said.
Barkley estimates that there are over 500 years of
experience in the unit. "There is a lot of expertise in
the unit. Antonio Jefferson did an excellent job
putting together our policies and procedures. B.W.
Rowan is a certified teacher at the Pat Thomas Law
Enforcement Academy and Howard Smith is a
certified firearms instructor. There is a lot of
professionalism in the reserves now. When Florida
did away with the old auxiliary units and required
all reserves to have the same training as other
officers, it made a big difference," he said.


in the state," Richard Thompson, local
historical society member, said.
The issue came to the forefront last year
when Progress Energy announced plans to run
an electric transmission line along the railroad
tracks through Greensboro. That's easier to do
if there is a clear easement underneath the
line, Drake said, so the company can maintain
the area.
The line will "enhance and ensure reliable
service in that part of the state," Drake said.
It will stretch from the Progress' new
Atwater substation to its new. Liberty
substation, a distance of about 19 miles, and
will closely follow the A & N railroad line
right-of-way. The new substations and
transmission line are scheduled to be
operational by fall.

Parker

Continued from Page 1

councilman. City Manager Paul
Piller said Tuesday he was
working on a proclamation
honoring Parker.
"He's going to be missed
dearly, not just by the church but
by the community. He was a man
who was loved," Lamb said. "I
really feel like he had a mission
from God. He did the best that he
could do in the time he was here,
and what else could you ask for?"
Parker and his wife, Diane,
married in 1985 but had known
each other far longer.
"He was just a wonderful
person. He looked out for
everybody but himself," Mrs.
Parker said. "He is going to be
greatly missed."
The couple dated for nearly
nine years before marrying, Mrs.
Parker said, as she fondly
recalled her husband's lively
sense of humor, which he often
displayed from the pulpit. He
served as pastor of St. Matthew
Primitive Baptist Church in
Tallahassee.
"He used to say with his
preaching, 'it"s tight, but it's
right,'" she said. "I just want
people to remember how special
he was."
The couple had two daughters,
Ashley Parker, 20, and Livetra
Wilson, 29, and two
granddaughters.
Born in Midway in 1961 to
Lessie Tennell Parker and the late
Louis James Parker Sr., Parker
attended Gadsden County public
schools. He began preaching in
1987 under Elder Lewis
Anderson at St. Luke Primitive
Baptist Church in Midway.
At the time of his death he
worked for the Florida
Department of Financial Services
as an accountant and a
supervisor.
He also served as secretary of
the Wakulla County Ministerial
Association, vice president of the
Old West Florida Primitive
Baptist Church School
Convention; member of the Old
West Florida Primitive Baptist
Association; chairman of finance
for the Florida State Primitive
Baptist Convention; assistant
recording secretary for the Old
West Florida Primitive Baptist


Association; secretary for the
Leon/Gadsden County Fifth
Sunday Union; advisor for the
Old West Florida Primitive
Baptist Youth Congress;
chairman of the board for The
Shepherd's Hand Resource, a
non-profit organization; manager
of recording artists Shaun and
The Butler Sisters and chief
financial officer of Richardson's
Family Funeral Care, Inc.
It's appropriate then, that
Richardson Family Funeral Care
is in charge of visitation for
Parker. Visitation is at the funeral
home's 101 E. 4th Ave. location
in Tallahassee July 21 from 3
p.m. to 9 p.m., and his funeral is
scheduled for Saturday at 10 a.m.
at Old West Florida Primitive
Baptist Enrichment Center at
2344 Lake Bradford Road in
Tallahassee.
"I have not begun to come to
grips with it yet," said Derryck T.
Richardson Sr., director of the
funeral home. "He's my brother -
we just adopted each other years
ago. He was awesome. He drove
me to mortuary college in Atlanta
back in 1993 and picked me up
there when I graduated in 1995 -
I mean he brought all my stuff
back in his van. Those are going
to be some hard shoes to fill."
Richardson said plans are to
name the funeral home's newest
chapel after Parker. The chapel
will be built in Monticello.
"It will be the Louis J. PMrker
Memorial Chapel we think that
is most fitting," he said.
Before leaving town on a trip to
Tampa last week, Richardson
stopped by to see Parker at the
hospital.
"I was leaving, and he said, 'I
love you,' and I said, 'I love you
too.' Then they called me when I
got to Tampa, and I couldn't
believe it. I turned around and
came right back."

North Florida, Inc. will hold its

8 The Gadsden County Times July 20,2006


New AIDS drug

holds promise for

some patients


$1100 a month drug
probably won't be
available at Gadsden
Health Department
By Leslie Roberts
Times News Editor
A new all-in-one AIDS drug approved
by the U.S. Food and Drug
Administration could help ease the
medical regimen some HIV-positive
patients endure.
By combining three antiretroviral drugs
currently used to treat AIDS, Atripla is
expected to help patients stick with a drug
regimen without having to juggle taking
as many as 36 medications.
Florida Department of Health Bureau of
HIV/AIDS statistics show roughly 173
people in Gadsden County are presumed
to be living with HIV or AIDS through
April of this year. That number does not
reflect any department of corrections
inmates who might have the virus.
Atripla is likely to be most beneficial for
newly-diagnosed HIV cases, said Keith
Blocker, Gadsden County Health
Department HIV/AIDS prevention and
training consultant.
''It's a neat thing that they have the all-
in'one pill, but it's really geared toward
people who just found out they have
HIV," Blocker said. "Most of the people
we find here have already been infected
seven or eight years when' they are
tested."
Adhering to the medical treatment
regime many HIV and AIDS patients
require is difficult under the best of
circumstances, Blocker said. In an area
like Gadsden County, where around 32
physicians serve a population of close to
50,000, it becomes more challenging.
"There are not enough medical people
in the area to keep (HIV" and AIDS
victims) on a regimen. Even if you get an
early diagnosis, months, years pass, then
the virus learns that drug. People stop
taking their medicine because they feel
better, or they can't work through the side
effects. Then when they start taking their
medicine again, the virus doesn't respond
to'it," Blocker said.
"Magic Johnson takes two pills a day,
but he found out he had HIV within a
year of getting it. He can adhere better
than the average person we have to get
up and go to work, take care of the kids ...
oice people start these medicines, they're
on them for life."
While Bureau of HIV/AIDS statistics
show 10 reported cases of HIV in
Gadsden County from January to April of
this year and seven cases for the same
time period last year, a better gauge of the
changes in the number of HIV and AIDS
cases is seen in annual total case
comparisons, said Lorene Maddox, the
bureau's surveillance date analysis
manager.
"Year-to-date numbers could mean an
increase in testing. There's always a push
at the beginning of the year to get
numbers in for Ryan White (a federally
funded program designed to help care for
HIV and AIDS patients. White
succumbed to AIDS in 1990 after
contracting HIV in his youth during a
blood transfusion)," Maddox said.
According to the most recent data
available, there were 22 reported cases of
HIV in Gadsden County in 2004 and 32
in 2005. In 2004, 19 AIDS cases were
reported as opposed to eight in 2005.
Blocker said he doubts the health
department will offer the drug at least
not right away because of its cost and
the funding shortages within the
department.
"Our-particular area is so rural we just
get dollars for basic meds," he said. Even
so, for those who have insurance or can
afford to-buy Atripla outright at a cost of
around $1,100 for a month's supply, it's a
medicine that can improve the quality of
life for HIV and AIDS patients.
"That would be one of the better
treatment options for them," Blocker said.

Crape Myrtle Day
Radiant reds, pretty pinks, wonderful whites and even magnificent magentas dazzled participants at the recent crape myrtle field day,
hosted by the local University of Florida IFAS center. The center's more-than-90 varieties of crape myrtles were in full bloom for the
event, held last Wednesday, rendering a kaleidoscope of colors and oohss and ahhs" from the scores of attendees. Dr. Gary Knox
(holding clipboard), UF/IFAS professor of ornamental horticulture, shared information about the different crape myrtle breeds featured
at the Quincy research center, while nursery workers and plant enthusiasts scribbled notes.
"Crape myrtle is one of our most popular and important landscape plants," Knox said. "This field day is a great opportunity to learn
about the new red-flowered and dwarf types, and compare them to older varieties."

Strolling the streets

TCS's Jenkins


By Brian Dekle
Times Intern
Before last month, a Havana
teenager had. never traveled
farther north than Atlanta. Now,
however, the Tallavana Christian
School junior is one of the most
well-traveled young men in
Gadsden County.
For three weeks last month
Justin Jenkins strolled the
cobblestone streets of Rome,
gawked at the ancient Antonio
Gaudi architecture of Barcelona,
stood eerily close to Adam and
God as depicted on the ceiling of
the Sistine Chapel.in the Vatican,
and smelled the sweetness of


vineyards and rolling Tuscan hills
in the south of France. The
sensations were a far cry from the
only world Jenkins had
previously known the
southeastern United States.
Jenkins 'embarked on the
Mediterranean excursion through
the People to People Student

1956 by President Dwight

young people to develop peaceful

Six Next Level
players expected to
sign professional
contracts soon

by Brian Dekle
Times Intern

Professional basketball
contracts are in the works for six
participants of Quincy's recent
Next Level Basketball Camp, and
organizers hope to build on that
success with' another camp July
27.
"We got such a demand from
our contacts oversees, so we've
got to go out and identify (talent).
We really want some local talent
(this time)," Dimitric Salters,
camp instructor and organizer,


said.
Twenty five top-tier players
from Texas, Alabama, North
Carolina, South Carolina, Florida
and Georgia passed, dribbled,
shot baskets and generally played
their hearts out at the camp last
month. It was Next Level's first,
and organizers hope to draw the
attention of international
basketball scouts present there.
Organizers say they hope more
local players will register for the
July 27 camp, adding to the ranks
of those six expected to be signed
to professional contracts soon.
"If you want an opportunity to
take it (basketball playing) to the
next level, this is an opportunity
to showcase (your talents). We've
got some serious contacts there,"
Salters said.
The camp will be held at the
East Gadsden High School


gymnasium and the event is open
to the public free of charge.
Salters said a "decent crowd for
the first camp" watched players
at the last camp.
"The public should come out
and see some dynamic talent
from around the country that they
usually don't get to see in
Gadsden County," Salters said.
The camp's instructors are
Clemon Johnson, who played 10
years in the NBA and five years
in Italy; Salters, who played four
years in Europe and was an All-
American NAIA player; and
Chad Johnson, who played for
the 2002 Pittsburgh Panthers
'Sweet Sixteen' team.
Interested players may visit
www.nextlevelbb.com for more
information or to register.
Registration is $100.


Tournament on 'the Hooch' yields some whoppers


Fishing from Rotary Park
Landing down to Hatchachubee
and back, Danny Hall and
Weyman Ledford started out the
day catching a bunch of fish but
couldn't seem to catch anything
big enough to put in the live-well.
They made a decision to make
some adjustments to the way the
were fishing, and -sure enough,
they started bringing keepers to
the boat. Danny explained that
they caught fewer fish, but the
average size went up
considerably.
Weyman admitted that Danny
was doing so well that he seldom
had time to get settled in before
he was netting another bass for
him. Weyman was happy to see
Danny having a hot day on "the
'Hooch."
Danny also explained how they
worked the outside turns up and
down the Hooch, and that they
were able to catch fish at just
about any of the turns. He said
he feels pretty good about the
quantity and quality of the bass
fishery in this section of the river.
Allen Burkhalter and Don Ward
took second place, only about a
pound and a half back. They
reported catching their limit
upriver from the landing, and
made it sound like they may have
been within sight of the falls most
of the day.
Ed Coggin managed to take the
biggest bass of the tournament.
Along with partner Paul Cooper,
Ed landed a beautiful
Chattahoochee largemouth
weighing 5.21 pounds. While
fishing in the River Bend area,

they hit what they believed to be
a submerged stump. Regretfully,
they would lose their engine, and
only manage to weigh-in two
fish.
They were very grateful to Sam
Rochell who gave Ed a lift to the
scales, and$i also to Mike
Touchton who was kind enough
to give them a tow back to the
landing.
Special thanks to the staff of
River Crest for their hospitality
during the tournament.


Members of the ChrisErica's
All-Star Cheerleading
competition squad attended a
Universal Cheerleading
Association (UCA) camp July 10

on by the UCA staff. A spirit
stick was awarded Tuesday and
Wednesday for teams that
demonstrated a lot of energy and
enthusiasm.
ChrisErica's All-Stars earned a
spirit stick each day. The team


also won five superior ribbons.
"Jump-Offs" are a highlight of
the camp. Each squad chooses
their best jumpers to compete
against jumpers from other
squads. Shakaria Foster and

ChrisErica, and both made it to
the final round and earned a gold
(superior) ribbon.

Gretna paves the way for new city manager


by Brian Dekle
Times Intern

With the help of an area
consulting firm, the city of
Gretna is cleaning house and
clearing the way for a new city
manager. expected to be hired
within a few weeks.
Officials from KMR
Consultants, LLC, the firm hired
by Gretna, briefly outlined
progress made in this process at
Monday's rescheduled city
commission meeting. They
anticipate bringing a new city
manager on board within a few
weeks.
Establishing a more efficient
work plan for the Gretna city
workforce was the first item
discussed by consultants.
The firm plans to send job
descriptions and classification
surveys to city workers over the
next several weeks and, following
completion of the surveys, will
interview the workers to
determine their specific job types.
The firm then plans to compare
workers' salaries to those of
similar job types in other area
towns of roughly Gretna's


population, hoping to settle on
appropriate wages and job
descriptions for city employees.
Next KMR officials outlined the
process for narrowing the current
pool of 19 city manager
candidates to three. The
commission will eventually
interview them to determine the
town's next city manager.
The process is based on a 100-
point system, giving candidates
more points for certain
credentials as deemed important
by the commission.
Councilwoman Helen Frank
expressed concerns that the
system placed too much weight
with "prior Gretna management
experience," giving those
candidates an unfair advantage
over other equally or more
qualified candidates.
The commission eventually
agreed to change the point
division to give more weight to
applicants "with prior Gadsden
County or rural community
management experience," and
completely removed the category
offering points for Gretna
management experience.
Firm officials told the board


they expect to narrow the pool of
applicants down to three within
two weeks.
An industrial park marketing
plan was the next item presented
by KMR.
Firm officials told the board
they wanted to work with the city
of Gretna and the Gadsden
County Chamber of Commerce
on developing a marketing
strategy for the local industrial
site, and added they would also
like to get some small businesses
and even area university business
schools involved in the industrial
park's operations.
The firm plans to advertise the
Gretna industrial park in Business
Matters magazine, the
Tallahassee Democrat and other
area publications.
Finally, KMR officials
discussed a code enforcement
plan for Gretna that involves
providing citizens with more
education on local codes,
ensuring sufficient code
enforcement personnel and
leaving open the option for the
board to tighten city codes in the
future.
In other business Monday night:


*Maximo Martinez, Gadsden
Community Health Council
director, outlined plans for a half-
cent sales tax to fund healthcare
programs in Gadsden County.
The commission approved a
resolution of support for the
council's initiatives.
*Heard a land use change
request from Willard Crawford.
The commission took no action
but said they will review zoning
guidelines so they can make a
decision on the request at a future
meeting.
*Approved setting an August
meeting date with the American
Red Cross. j
*Approved setting a meeting as
soon as possible with the Florida
Department of Environmental
Protection to discuss possible
alternative uses for a $400,000
grant awarded for improvements
on Park Street Park.
*Discussed impacts and
possible future action regarding a
$500,000 grant from the Florida
DEP for inflow/infiltration
collection system.


Hospital board anxious to find management for hospital


by Alice DuPont
Times Editor

Gadsden Hospital, Inc. agreed
during their recent meeting that
it's time to start looking for an
entity to manage Gadsden
Community Hospital.. "We don't
want the Agency for Health Care
Administration (ACHA) to tell us
that we can open up and we're
not ready," chairman Craig
McMillan said.
"We want to make sure we're
not holding up the process. I
don't want ACHA to say you all
can come in and we're still
looking for vendors," he
reiterated. While the county still
has to convince the Center for
Medicare and Medicaid (CMS) to
reinstate services or designate the
hospital as a sole provider so the
county can recoup funds from the
federal government, that may not
be as hard as some originally
thought.
"CMS is fairly reluctant to
regain the cost status under the
(bankruptcy) circumstances,"
assistant county attorney Paul
Sexton said, adding a phone call
from the governor could help
pave the way. Much of the debt
under the county's name is really
the debt of Ashford Healthcare,


Inc., the management that was
operating the hospital when
ACHA shut it down Nov. 4,
2005.
The major question, according
to Sexton, is how much of that
debt the county will have to pay.
CMS says that Ashford was
overpaid a million dollars per year
for several years. The problem is
the books are inaccurate.
A CPA firm from Mobile, Ala.
is currently trying to unravel the
financial report to get the closest
estimate to exactly how much
money Ashford was overpaid. It
appears that the federal and state
governing bodies are both willing
to accept the findings of the firm.
"The next few weeks will be
crucial with ACHA and CMS,"
Sexton said.
Also, during the next few
weeks, someone will have to
inventory equipment at the
hospital to determine what
belongs to Ashford and what
belongs to the county. The county
will purchase whatever
equipment is determined to
belong to Ashford. Joe Sharp,
consultant, said some of the
equipment may not be usable and
that some companies may be
willing to write it off, but he
stopped short of making any


promises.
Gadsden County Health Council
director Maximo Martinez
explained the half-cents sales tax
proposal for indigent health care
in the county. He said he had
presented the proposal and
received approval .from all of the
municipalities that heard the
presentation. The proposal also
got citizen support at several
community town hall meetings.
Members of the board were
interested in knowing how the
council plans to reach the
population that is already
underserved and how the council
plans to avoid abuse should the


measure pass in the November
general election.
"Precautions will be taken to
avoid abuse. We will be able to
verify address, income, and
eligibility,"Sharp said.
Dr. Charles Kent questioned
whether physicians will be
available to treat the influx of
patients. "Many of the doctors in
he county are already maxed out
with the number of patients
they can see. It's going to be an
uphill battle," he said. Still, the
board gave the effort its blessing.


Van Morrison sang about it,
Peter Fonda starred in a movie
about it, and people from all over
the world will pay top dollar just
to get some of it.
It's tupelo honey, a honey so
distinct, light and smooth that
people describe it as they would a
fine wine. But the future of
tupelo honey production may not
be so sweet.
J. Anthony Stallins, Florida
State University geography
professor, and Kelly Watson,
FSU doctoral student, are
studying factors that could affect
the future of beekeeping
operations in northwest Florida -
one of the only places in the
world where tupelo honey is
produced commercially. Watson
has a $15,000 grant from the U.S.
Community Forestry Fellowship
for dissertation research to work
with beekeepers and study the
tupelo forests surrounding
Wewahitchka, Fla. "Wewa," as
the locals say, is a small town
adjoining the Apalachicola and
Chipola rivers and serves as the
unofficial capital of tupelo honey.
"We're hoping to paint a
comprehensive picture of the
challenges that face the
beekeepers," Stallins said. "I
don't think the public knows how
hard it is to produce honey. We
want more awareness of the
social context of beekeeping and
how environmental change and
sociopolitical and economic
factors play out to influence the
use and access to tupelo forest."
Some beekeepers say that every
year they seem to be getting less
honey for their efforts. Stallins
and Watson will explore the
degree to which changing river
hydrology, exotic pests, land
development and other factors are
affecting tupelo honey
production, an important regional
industry that contributes about
$2.4 million a year to Florida's
economy.
The researchers' findings will
allow beekeepers to develop
collective strategies to defend
their livelihood, Watson said.
That's important because helping
the beekeepers will in turn help
the survival of the forests along
the Apalachicola River
floodplain, one of the most


biologically diverse ecosystems
in North America. Although
tupelo trees can be found
elsewhere, the white tupelo from
which the honey featured in the
1997 movie "Ulee's Gold" is
derived is found in abundance
only along the Apalachicola.
"It's the preferred tree for
making tupelo honey," Stallins
said, explaining that this type of
honey does not granulate like
many honeys. "The tupelo honey
derived from forests with a
greater concentration of white
tupelo is more likely to have the
complex floral flavor when
compared to other tupelo
honeys."
It takes a colony of 60,000 bees
about two million nectar-
gathering visits to the tupelo
blossoms each spring to make a
pound of honey. That task is even
tougher than it sounds because
some beekeepers say it is
increasingly difficult to find
places to put their hives.
One reason is because the forest
has taken a beating from more
than 45 years of dredging of the
Apalachicola for a river
navigation project. The dumping
of the dredged material has cut
off many tupelo trees from their
source of fresh water. Upstream
water diversion also has lessened
the flooding needed for a healthy
tupelo forest.
Exotic pests are taking their toll,
and beekeepers throughout
Florida are losing between 30 and
50 percent of their bee colonies to
mite and beetle infestations.
But the challenges facing
beekeepers in Wewahitchka are
as much political and economic
as they are ecological, and it's the
inclusion of those factors -
zoning regulations, land
development, higher property
taxes and increased cost of living
- that makes this study
significant, Stallins said.
One beekeeper told her, "Before
long tupelo honey may be a thing
of the past."
That's a shame, she said,
because beekeeping is more than
just a vocation in Wewahitchka,
where it has been practiced by
generations. It's a way of life that
gives this rural community its
unique flavor.

Tax-free back to school shopping days set


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

Grab the credit cards, grab the cash, the tax-free
holiday begins at 12:01 a.m. July 22 and lasts until
midnight July 30.
The tax- free holiday is designed. to help citizens
as they purchase back-to-school clothes and supplies
for themselves and their children. '
There will be no tax on clothing and related items
with a sales price of $50 or Jess, books with a price
tag or $50 or less and school supplies with a price
tag of $10 or less.

in the family's swimming pool and watched
American movies with English subtitles.
Other parts of the experience were explicitly
French, however the food in particular. Jenkins
recalls enjoying much of the home-cooked
Mediterranean gourmet ravioli, French salads, a
tomato/olive oil/basil blend but admits he cringed
after sinking his teeth into some of the exotic
cheeses the family implored him to sample.
One variety of sheep cheese that Jenkins said was
"hard on the outside but soft on the inside"
particularly disgusted the all-American eater. "It
was nasty," he remembers.
"Jalatto," a type of Mediterranean-style ice cream,
was a favorite of Jenkins' during his trip, and he
says he bought some in nearly every town they
visited.
The European jaunt was far more more than a
celebration of foreign fodder, however, as Jenkins
discovered numerous sites and sounds he had
previously only witnessed on television, books or
magazines.
Some, such as topless women on beaches and ritsy
Flamenco dancing, may seem unorthodox to the
uncultured mind, but Jenkins concedes he realizes it
was all part of a different way of life.
It was the ancient, mammoth buildings and
monuments, however, that really captivated the
young high school student. Structures like the
coliseum, St. Peter's Basilica, and the leaning tower
of Pisa became more than just fleeting mental
images to Jenkins, but surreal, physical testaments
to a history stretching far past America's youth.
"Rome had nice architecture and buildings. It's
strange that they can say (a building) is 1,000 years
old and yet it's still fairly young. When I got to the
coliseum, it was big, but I thought it would be
bigger. Right now they're in the process of
renovating it, so it looked different than what I
expected," Jenkins recalls. "The Sistine Chapel -
that was nice. You hear people talk about how
realistic it is, and they're right. You go up to it and

teammates seemed to care.
If Robert even noticed that I
was white, he never let on.
As I dusted myself off the
second time I kinda glanced over
to our dugout. Nobody seemed to
be taking notice. The third pitch
hit me on the left arm. I trotted
down to first, careful not to rub it.
Two innings later the big left-
hander came up to bat. Charles
Beachum was pitching for us.
Listen, he could throw a ripe
strawberry through a battleship!
I mean, he could hum it! Robert
was behind the plate. As Charles
began his wind up, I saw Robert
shift slightly to the inside and
move his mitt up behind the left-
hander's ear. People, the pitch hit
the big guy right in the middle of
the back. I heard the air come out
of him. The ball didn't glance
off, it bored into his flesh and
then dropped straight down. He
fell like he had been shot. It took
him a few minutes to get up and
they helped him toward first
base.
There was a statement made
that hot afternoon about
teammates and friendship and
looking out for one another......
After our playing days I would
stop and visit with Red. It would
take us about eight seconds to get
to the old baseball days or to the
Brooklyn Dodgers. We talked of
Clem Labine, Carl Erskine, Pee
Wee Reese and Roy Campanella.
He remembered Ray Jablonski's
big year and Maz's World Series
blow. I learned a lot of baseball
leaned against the front wall of
Peter's old laundry. We'd end
every session with a vow to break
out our old gloves for one more
game of pitch and catch.....
I sat with Robert at Edwin
Williams' funeral. Wheri the
speaker said Mr. Williams was an
educator, Robert nodded his head
in agreement. When he said Mr.
Williams was a man of vision, he
nodded again. When he said Mr.
Williams was a humble man, he
nodded again. When he said Mr.
Williams was a good man, he
smiled and nodded in complete
agreement.
I have thought so much over
the last few days how much
Robert fit into all of those
categories ... .and I have mourned
the loss of a terrific friend....
Respectfully,
Kes

Now is the time to stock up. Residents can save a
hefty amount of money as they take advantage of
the holiday, a result of Senate Bill 692 that re-
established the tax-free holiday for 2006.
As stores begin to stock shelves with paper,
pencils, notebooks, tablets anid other items,
merchants are encouraging people to take advange
of the holiday.
There are a list of items that are exempt from the
tax-free holiday. Merchants will identify those items
at the store, according to the Florida Department of

see it, and you think its sticking out of the wall, but
then see it's flat."
Having the opportunity to travel to one of the most
hallowed and primoridial cradles of empire and
culture didn't come without its initial obstacles,
however. Justin's mom, Elizabeth, admits she had
some apprehensions when she found out how long
her son would be away from her.
"Initially I was excited, but then we went to the
orientation and found out the length of time for the
trip, and I tried to convince Justin 'this is not
something you want to do,'" she remembers. "I tried
to talk him out of it, but he had his mind made up."
Finally mom's mind was eased by a later
presentation by People to People officials that
stressed the organization's safety record. "When
that was settled the issue was not worry but 'why
can't I go?'" Elizabeth says.
While in Europe Justin made sure to call his
mother at least twice a week, often at 2 a.m. in the
eastern U.S. Now back on American soil, Justin has
fielded countless questions about his journey from
his proud and supporting family.
Justin's pastor at Metropolitan Cathedral of Truth
and the principal of Tallavana Christian School have
already asked him to give a presentation on his
voyage across the Atlantic. Justin said he plans to do
just that, not only for his church and school, but for
the numerous other local business sponsors that
helped him pay for the pricey trip.
"We're just so proud and excited," Elizabeth says,
adding she remembers Justin writing in a paper for
school long ago, "Remember my name. You'll see it
again."
"i was impressed (by Justin's words), and we
always knew he'd do great things," she said.
Justin says the trip has now sparked an increased
interest in traveling the world and his own country.
Northern France, China or even 'Antarctica may
soon be. in the cards for the young trekker as he
explores new travel opportunities through People to
People and other outlets.
Justin Jenkins is the son of Elizabeth and Leonda
Jenkins and the grandson of the late Ralph Jenkins
and Dorothy Jenkins, and Charles Williams (Faye)
and Mildred Williams. He has two siblings, Maya
and Jordan.


Non-profit

Continued from Page 4
Yes, it's true that private
businesses are "for-profit"'to
shareholders, investors, and
owners, and the differentiation
intended by 'Not-for-profit" has
some meaning in that limited
context. But the term "Non-
profit" weakens the power of the
organizations' impact and lessens
the value of their contribution to
the community.
So since an effective advocate
should never identify a problem
without proposing a solution,
here's my proposal. I am
advocating changing the name of
the sector to the "community
sector." There's the government
sector, the business
sector, and I think it's
appropriate to call the range of
health, family services, arts, faith,
and education organizations the
community sector.
These organizations exist to
create a better-quality of life for
those they serve, and for the
community in which they
operate. They have so much to
offer, so many opportunities to
attract volunteers, donors, and
quality professional staff so their
goals are achieved.
As an advocate for a spectrum
of organizations in the "business
of community betterment" I am
inspired by the depth of concern
and empowered by the breadth of
talent associated with these
wonderful community
institutions.
It is for this reason that I
believe that philanthropic and
governmental support, as well as
the commitment of volunteers, is
more likely to be forthcoming if
these organizations position
themselves in light of the positive
term "community sector."
I'm launching this campaign to
stimulate conversation and I'm
seeking your response. I know
that some folks may be
uncomfortable with change, but
please give thought to the true
benefit of what I propose.
Please consider changing the
language you use and if it means
reprinting brochures, editing
websites, and reorienting the
mindset of being a "non-profit" I
think it's worth the effort.

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

World


Cup, but




local soccer




teams shine


'I


By Brian Dekle
Times Intern
The 2006 World Cup in Germany may
have captured the attention of soccer fans
around the world, but Gadsden County
residents need not travel abroad or tune in
to ESPN to catch world-class soccer
action. A thriving but little-known league
exists right in their own backyards.
While many local workers and students
wind down on the couch in front of a
television following a strenuous work
day, droves of local Hispanic residents
gather in makeshift fields to play
"football" or, as gringos call it, "soccer"
every day until sunset to forget the
pressures of life in the fields, on the
jobsite or in the classroom.
"It's recreation for us. Many people
don't like it (soccer), but when you're
working every day it's kind of a release,"
Sergio Rivera, league president, says.
Soccer serves as far more than a mere
stress reliever for these locals, however; it
is a way of life. One that has evolved into
a well-organized and formidable league
of players who have brought world-class
talent and years of playing experience
from much more soccer-savvy nations
such as El Salvador, Honduras and
Nicaragua.
Nineteen coached teams now make up
the Gadsden Area Hispanic Soccer
league, a far cry
from its humble
beginnings in the
90s of just two or
three teams.
The teams pla. *N w
dozens of games A&,
amongst '
themselves even

summer and winter ..s
soccer seasons.
keeping track of
wins and losses,
holding playoffs
and eventually
crowning a local
champion.
The best of the
Gadsden Countv ,
teams travels to
soccer tournaments throughout Florida,
Georgia and Alabama. And so far, local
champs have made quite a name for
themselves, winning tournaments in
Moultrie, Ga.; Ft. Walton, Fla.; Valdosta,
Ga., and numerous other locations.
The Gadsden County league's success
has attracted the attention of national
soccer moguls, and officials with the


i
I
U


U ~


*,~-. ~~-~*' ?i-'-


nationally-renowned Tecate Cup in
Atlanta recently invited the local league
to send its best players for the tournament
there next year.
Although recognition of the local soccer
league may be growing in national soccer
circles, unfortunately much of Gadsden
County outside the Hispanic community
has yet to notice the league's activity and
accomplishments.
A general lack of interest in soccer, the
world's most popular sport, among
Americans is partly to
Blame, league officials
explain, but they hope
to change that, at least
in Gadsden County.
.. "We really want to
involve the
community," says
Marcial Goribay,
general manager for the
S local Spanish radio
station (1580 AM) and
key supporter of the
local soccer league.
Goribay adds the
local league would like
to start soccer teams for
children, as well, but
S various obstacles
.. prevent them from
accomplishing either.
The lack of a proper playing field is of
particular concern. Right now the local
league plays on a clearing between
houses south of Gretna on Mt. Pleasant
Road.
Although the players diligently make
the most of what they have, the field is
hardly ideal and even has enormous
concrete transmission line posts resting in
mid-field.
All of the 19 teams must share this field
as well, making it difficult for every team
to hold weekly practices and making it
nearly impossible to accommodate
additional teams or needs.
The local league has asked the Quincy
Parks and Recreation Department for
access to their fields, but could not afford
the insurance required to do so. For now,
the Gadsden soccer league rents the field
at Shanks Middle School for playoff
games.
The team seeks sponsors and help with
its field dilemma. Anyone interested in
contributing may call Marcial Goribay at
the Spanish radio station at 850-663-
8543.
League leaders encourage local
residents to get involved with the local
soccer league by attending games held all
day on Sundays.

Training for inmates
gives them a second
chance, early release
The jails are at full capacity.
Once inmates are released from
jail, the support structure isn't
there.
These are just a few of the
issues that are being addressed by
the Second C.H.A.N.C.E.
initiative, designed through a
partnership between
WORKFORCE Plus and the
Gadsden County Sheriff's Office.
Second C.H.A.N.C.E. will create
hope and new choices for
everyone.
"These people need a plan when
they get out. One of the main
reasons for re-offending is not
having a positive step to take
upon release," Sheriff Morris
Young said.
Second C.H.A.N.C.E.
participants will receive a four-
week intensive services training
provided at the Gadsden' County
jail. As a condition of successful
completion of this training,
participants will be eligible for
early release.
Upon release and as a condition
of probation, participants will
take part in a four-week
customized training to include
work readiness and preparation,
resume writing, and interviewing.
Participants will then be placed in
employment or training based
upon an assessment.
Research shows that individuals
whO. ar' equipped with the,
necessary tools to change often
times do- so, and Second
C.H.A.N.C.E. is the opportunity
for individuals who have, made
bad choices to not only correct
those mistakes but also make a
positive difference in the
community.
By providing this option to gain
meaningful employment, we will
strive to deter them from
committing further crime,"
Kimberly Moore, CEO of
WORKFORCE Plus said.
For more information, contact
Kimberly Moore at
WORKFORCE Plus at (850)

Richard "Rico" White
Richard "Rico" White, 36, died
Friday, July 14, 2006 in
Tallahassee.
Beggs Funeral Home had
charge of arrangements.
Memorial contributions may be
made to Quincy Music Theater,
118 E. Washington St., Quincy,
FL. 32351.
On Friday, July 14, 2006,
Richard "Rico" White left this
world for The Great Gig In The
Sky. He left behind no blood kin,
but a large family of heart-his
fiancee', Rachel Vickers, and the
rest of his adoptive family. John
and Carol Vickers, his "parents-
out-law," Luke and Robynne
Vickers, his "brother and sister-
out-law" and Desteny and Trinity
Vickers, his nieces.
Rico was an original. His
approach to life was to live it on
his own terms; unapologetically.
Nothing stopped him. His
philosophy was; "This is who I
am. Accept me, or be on your
way." However, anyone who


made the slightest effort to know
him never hesitated to accept him
with open arms. His illness made
it difficult for him to
communicate with people, but he
never let it stop him from
expressing his incredible
intelligence, rapier wit, wickedly
clever sense of humor, or his
incredible compassion and vast
love for the people in his life.
While we will miss him more
than words can ever express, we
know that, wherever he is, there
is no more pain; and in the words
of Trinity, "no more stinky
wheelchair." He is off on his next
adventure with his customary
style, panache, and wicked little
grin.
Cheers, Speed Racer, and try
not to get into too much trouble.

Electricity is a modern convenience that is usually taken for granted by most people. Electricity allows us to have artificial lighting, indoor heating and air
conditioning, and the ability to start our automobiles. Though they did not have electricity in the ancient times, the Greeks knew that certain items had electric
properties. Many people worked on the invention of electricity, and no one man can be credited for it's discovery. Many people, such as Thomas Edison, the
inventor of the light bulb; Alexander Graham Bell, inventor of the telephone; Nikola Tesla; inventor of the AC motor, and Benjamin Franklin, famous for many
inventions, all contributed to the ability to use energy that we have today.
Electricity is a form of energy. It operates all of our appliances and can even help the human body to operate. Electric currents take information from nerve
cells to the brain. Electricity is produced by the conflict of positive and negatively charged electrons. When electricity is at rest it is called static electricity.
Many of you may have experienced this when you have rubbed your feet across a carpet during a cold winter, or have combed your hair and it stood straight
out. This is static electricity at work. When you feel the shock that you get after these things happen, what you are feeling is an electrical current. A conductor
is something that attracts electricity. A conductor can be many things, from water to a battery that you buy at the store. When the terminals of a battery are
connected with a conductor, an electrical circuit is produced. A generator produces electrical energy from mechanical energy.
The electricity that is used in our homes is made in huge power plants. There dre many different types of power plants. Some burn fossil fuels to create
energy, some use water to create power, and others are nuclear power plants. Though there are many different ways to create this power, the two most
common are the hydroelectric and nuclear. Hydroelectric power plants create electric power by using the force of water to create energy that can be captures.
In a nuclear power plant, nuclear atoms are divided up. When atoms divide, it creates energy. This can be a dangerous way to create power, but it is very
clean and efficient.
One thing that you probably don't think of about power is that when you use lights you are using up energy from the Earth. It is always important to remem-
ber that you should only use the energy that you need. Ways to conserve energy are to not uselights when you need them and to car pool. If we all take care
of the environment, we will have plenty sources of energy for many years to come. '" r r r. f I

Submitted by Gadsden
County School Board
Parents of Gadsden County
District Schools are hereby
notified of their school options
available for the 2006-2007
school year. Students who attend
all schools, except Crossroads
Academy, have the option to
transfer to a school that made
Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP)

eligible. If a parent decides to


transfer to a school that made
AYP, the district .will provide
transportation. The only school
that made AYP is Crossroads
Academy. In order to receive free
tutoring, students must be eligible
for free/reduced price meals.
Because there are a large number
of students who are eligible for
free tutoring, the district will
prioritize according to the
greatest need, to determine which
students will actually receive free
tutoring. Surveys will be mailed


to parents requesting that they "'
make a choice. Parents may also
complete the survey in next
week's issue or 'stop by your
child's school for a copy of the
survey. All surveys must be
returned on or before August 1, AA

your choice options, you may
contact Title I Coordinator,
Tammy McGriff Farlin at 627-
7557.

The Florida School Boards
Association has appointed Isaac
Simmons, Gadsden County
School Board member to the
Section I Appeals Committee.
Simmons is a veteran school
board member with years of

and to the Florida High School

The Tallahassee Boys Choir

graduates were inspired by
keynote speaker, Derry Harper,
chief inspector general for the
Executive Office of Governor
Bush.
"This graduating class is
especially outstanding for us as
they represent the first class of
baccalaureate students since
Keiser expanded to a four-year
college two years ago,"
announced Mark Gutmann,


campus president.
Gutmann also expects to see
most of his graduates employed
in the community. "Our
graduates are generally
permanent residents of the tri-
county area...they live here, work
here, and raise families here."
The Keiser family founded
Keiser College in 1977 when they
recognized a need in the
community for quality career
education with a hands-on
orientation, small class sizes and
innovative scheduling to
accommodate working adults.
