Gretna tackles

park project

problems

by Brian Dekle
Times Intern
The City of Gretna needs to
plan much better for phase three
and four of improvements on
Park Street Park, City Attorney
Harold Knowles told the
Commission Tuesday night.
"Phase one and two don't
connect," Knowles said.
For months the city has
struggled to appropriately spend
state Department of
Environmental Protection grant
funds on the Gretna park, which
has been plagued by vandalism
and arguable design and
construction mismanagement
since the improvement project
began.
The city was just awarded
$400,000 for phase three and four
of the project, but to prevent
compound errors and a cycle of
financial misuse, Knowles
suggested carefully studying
what needs to be done at the park
to make it safe, attractive and
accessible in the long term.
Knowles said first of all the city
needs to appoint an in-house
grant manager and obtain copies
of the grant and park plans, so the
commission and city staff will be
knowledgable about plans and
construction, instead of being at
the mercy of the outside grant
manager and grant writer,
Auburn Ford.
Per Knowles' suggestion, the
city appointed newly-hired city
manager Antonio Jefferson as
grant manager for the project,
taking that job out of the hands of
Ford.
Ford told commissioners
Tuesday that he wrote the grant
out-of-pocket in exchange for
either being the project's grant
manager or primary contractor,
and the board is obligated to
fulfill that, which he said he saw
as a gentleman's agreement.
Knowles said although the
Commission may feel a moral
obligation to.keep Ford onboard
the project, there is no legal
agreement obligating them to do
so. He added the Commission

Gretna hires Jefferson


Familiar face returns as

Gretna's city manager

by Brian Dekle
Times Intern
After several years with no permanent
man on the job, the City of Gretna
welcomes back a familiar face to fill the
city manager position.
The Gretna City Commission; in a
special meeting last Thursday, voted four
to one to hire Antonio Jefferson,
purchasing officer for the City of Quincy,
as Gretna's city manager. Councilwoman
Helen Franks cast the only dissenting vote.
Jefferson, 40, served as city manager of
Gretna in 2002, but, after struggling to


gain the support of the commission at that
time, was terminated.
The former law enforcement officer
officially began his job Tuesday with the
base salary of $50,500 annually, after
commissioners voted unanimously to
approve his starting immediately, instead
of waiting two weeks as originally
planned.
The commission has not yet approved his
final contract, which will include a benefits
package.
"I feel outstanding to have the
opportunity to once again serve the citizens
and commission of Gretna," Jefferson said.
"I genuinely care about Gretna and I stand
ready to work with the commission and
citizens of Gretna to become an All-
American city."
The commission interviewed but rejected

former city manager of Quincy, and
Newall Jerome Daughtrey of Miami, at the
Thursday meeting.
"He (Jefferson) brings to the front Gretna
expansion experience. His vision for
Gretna is what struck me," Gretna Mayor
Nadine Smith said.
Advertising for the city manager job
began in May, and KMR Consulting, LLC,
hired by Gretna to find a city manager and
to work on other city projects, narrowed a
pool of 16 applicants down to three over
the last two weeks.
KMR selected the finalists based on a
credential scoring system approved by the
board at a meeting last month.

Woman dies in 4 wheeler accident


by Leslie Roberts
Times News Editor

A 30-year-old woman was
killed last week in south
Gadsden County after the all-
terrain vehicle she was driving
overturned.
Paula Marie Mumford, of
West Palm Beach, was riding
with two other people, each on
their own vehicles, when she
hit a culvert and overturned at
around 8:20 p.m., July 27.
She was thrown onto the
shoulder of McCall Bridge
Road, also known as County
Road 65C.
The accident occurred just
east of Antioch Baptist Church.
A Life Net helicopter landed
between the church and the
adjacent cemetery to transport
Mumford to Tallahassee
Memorial Hospital, where she
was pronounced dead.
The Gadsden County
Sheriff's Office, Florida
Highway Patrol, and the
Wetumpka Volunteer Fire
Department responded to the
call. Two ambulances also
responded.

Senior Center director, fiscal officer quit


President says center
will not 'miss a beat';

McSwain is interim leader

by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
In spite of the abrupt resignations last
Thursday of Bobbie Krebs and Nilda Burke,
executive director and fiscal officer of the
Gadsden County Senior Citizens Center,
board president Jim Kellum said the center
will not "miss a beat" in its operations.
Kellum said he was surprised when he got
the call from Krebs saying that she was
resigning immediately.
"She said she was too tired and too old, but
that she would do what she could to keep the
center going in the right direction," said
Kellum after Tuesday's meeting of the Board
of Directors.
Program manager Katrine McSwain, who
has worked at the center for the past 16 years,
was named interim director.
"I'm ready, willing and able to do the job,"
she told the board.
She also asked that she be allowed to
continue on as program manager at the center.
She said she could do both jobs well when


asked if both positions would be too much.
"I'll stay here until 7 o'clock if I need to,"
she said.
Several employees said they tried to attend
the meeting but were asked to leave.
"They told us we weren't invited to the
meeting. I thought there was something about
government in the sunshine in the state of
Florida that prohibited them from locking
people out," said Gerald McGill, case
manager at the center.
But even before the resignations, employees
said things weren't going well. Two weeks
.ago, Krebs fired Tracy Hill, fiscal
assistant/data entry employee and cut
McGill's position to part-time.
"This employee was discharged because of
the number of errors in payroll, billing for
services, lack of concentration and attitude,"
wrote Krebs to Hill in the letter of termination
dated July 25, 2006.
Hill questioned why she was terminated for
the reasons stated in a memo to the board.
"Mrs. Burke and Mrs. Krebs only spent 12-
15 hours per week in the office. On the days
they were in Gadsden, they came into the
office once or maybe twice peraweek around
10:30 a.m. and left at 4:30 p.m."
Krebs and Burke each worked at the Taylor
and. Jefferson county senior centers in
addition to the Gadsden center. In the memo,
Hill said part of the problem could be


. attributed to certain discrepancies she found.
"Bobbie Krebs' hourly rate was $19.23 at 80
hours bi-weekly, (at) $1,538.40 but checks
were printed for $2,115.38. Nilda Burke's
hourly rate was $15.75 at 80 hours bi-weekly
$1,260 but checks were printed for $1,634,"
Hill wrote.
She went on to advise the board that she felt
she had not been properly trained and that the
employees who were brought in to train her
were from 'other counties. One trainer told
her, she said, if she had any questions they
would "figure them out together" since she
too was new on the job.
But one former employee said problems at
the center didn't just start. On April 25, 2005,
six former administrative employees were
called in at 4:30 p.m. and read a statement
saying that the center had lost the grant they
were working under and as of 5 p.m., they no
longer had jobs. "The next day Krebs showed
up as the administrator," said one former
employee who asked not be named.
"The senior citizens aren't getting a fraction
of what they deserve down there. For
activities, they play bingo and color. That's a
shame, they are not being treated fairly," said
the former employee.
The Board of Directors plans another
meeting Tuesday, Aug. 8, at 9 a.m. to further
discuss the future of the center.

Midway to

revisit salary

for growth

manager

City retirement plan
to be considered also

by Leslie Roberts
Times News Editor
.Midway City Council members
got an earful from constituents
after doubling Growth
Management Director Roosevelt
Morris' salary to $104,000 last
month.
Two of the three Council
members at a. July 27 budget
workshop said the raise needs to
be reconsidered.
"This is going to be a hot
issue," councilman James Hinson
said. "We performed surgery that
night and I'm not sure we needed
to. I've gotten more phone calls
by people upset over this
$80,000-a-year raise. Especially
when they read in the paper that
there were a lot of certifications
he doesn't have."
The Council voted unanimously
July 6 to double Morris' salary
from $23.07 per hour to $50 per
hour, even after Mayor Delores
Madison noted 'several of his
professional licenses expired in
May.
The city pays an independent
contractor from Tallahassee $100
hour to perform the services
Morris is no longer licensed to
do; the proposed 2006-2007
budget sets aside $70,000 for that
contractor's fees.
During the workshop, Madison
said she'd had complaints about
the pay raise as well.
"People think we have just lost
our minds. People think we fell
off the wagon and bumped our
heads too hard," she said.
Both Madison and Hinson had
called Miami to see what the
salary was for a comparable
position there; Hinson said a
Miami growth management
services director salary is around
$50,000.
A check by the Times July 7 of
nearby cities similar in size to
Midway, which has a population
of around 1,400, showed an
average salary of around
$31,500.
Madison and Hinson each said
they'd like to see the topic
discussed at the next City
Council meeting.
"The stories in the newspaper
made us look like we didn't

Celebration
scheduled for

Dec. 9 and 10

by Brian Dekle
Times Intern
The Town of Havana is having
a huge 100-year birthday bash,
and you're invited to the
celebration, town officials say.
Havana will celebrate its
centennial Dec. 9 and 10 with a
parade, street dance, music, arts
and crafts, games, displays and
much more.
Havanans and out-of-towners
alike are encouraged to
participate in the celebration,
which town officials hope will
expose locals and guests alike to
Havana's fruitful history.
"I think Havana's got a rich
history and we want to share it
with the world," Karen Myrick,
Havana senior accountant and
Centennial Committee member,
said. "Havana's a really friendly
town, and we want to welcome
and let people know what a fine
.community it is."
Already lined up for the


celebration weekend is music by
community and school choirs,
jazz singer Pam Law, an African-
Carribean dance group, a
barbershop quartet and more to
come.
Celebration-goers can also get a
taste of what life was like around
the turn of the century through
"heritage craft" demonstrations
like blacksmithing, quilting and
basket-weaving, as well as a
presentation of historic Havana
pictures and artifacts.
Some may opt to take the
tobacco barn tour or a self-guided
walking tour of downtown
Havana.
"Locally everyone should be
proud of their town. Old-timers
can remember Havana's history,
but newer residents should learn
about the town's interesting
history, as well," Myrick said.
The parade will incorporate
Havana's annual lawnmower
parade into the centennial
festivities, with lawnmowers
being judged alongside centennial
floats.
One of the celebration's major
highlights is a model train exhibit
by the Big Bend Model Railroad
Association and an appearance by
an old railroad repair car. The
railroad memorabilia help
commemorate the town's


founding in 1906 as a railr
stop on the Georgia-Florik
Alabama line, which ran fro\
Cuthbert, Ga., to Tallahassee. .
Food vendors will keep hungry
patrons fueled up for thi'
festivities, and old-fashionet
games such as cake walks anr
sack races will keep children
entertained.
Although a final location ha
not yet been set, Myrick said thk
events are expected to take placg
downtown and possibly in a town
park. Festivities will kick off al
10 a.m. Saturday and at noor
Sunday.
Myrick said help is still needed
to get everything in order for thq
big celebration weekend. To lend
financial support, you may
purchase centennial T-Shirts that
feature the centennial logo, or
centennial coins for $10 each.
Those interested may also
attend Centennial Commitee
meetings on the second Thursday
of each month at 10 a.m.
For more information about
events or to find out how you can
help, call Havana Town Hall at
539-2820 or visit
www.townofhavana.com.
Nell Cunningham and Mildred
Franklin are Centennial
Committee co-chairs.

Let's DON'T get ready

to rumble! Okay?


We had a boxing match at the local high
school gym recently. I didn't go. But when
I read the advertisement in the paper my
legs turned to rubber, my eyes watered up,
my head began to pound and my
equilibrium became unequilibrilized.
I I had an older brother......which meant
that I spent the first ten or twelve years of
my life as a punching bag. I think if we had
had a t.v. in those early days I might have
escaped some of the "rounds".
And Leon wasn't mean to me understand.
He was the greatest older brother in the
world. He showed me how to lower that
old Revelation glove on ground balls below
my waist and how to get my elbows in and
hold the glove up for the fly balls. He could
get us in line ahead of most of the
grownups by "just looking hungry" at the
church picnic. He would "shepherd" me
and David Mark to the Park Theatre each
and every Saturday afternoon to see Roy,
Hoppy or Gene. He'd give me frogs or a
magnet to take to "show and tell" in Miss
Carolyn's class. He taught me how to swim
by tossing me out of the boat and driving
off-it was really quite easy after I got out of
the gunny sack and got the anchor untied.
You couldn't ask for a better friend...
It was just that he bored easily. And I was
always there.
I remember when I was nine or ten, Leon
was five years older, they'd hold these
Golden Gloves boxing matches. Joe
Ferolito is the only guy still around that can
recall when those Golden Gloves
tournaments were quite a big deal in the
little towns. They had real gloves and the
little satin shorts with the stripes down the
sides and everything. Of course, we didn't
know nothing about bobbing and weaving,
stick and jab......they just mostly stood up
there toe to toe and slugged it out. To
everyone's amazement, except mine, Leon
was the champion in his age division three
years in a row!
It seems like I would have learned a little
about the art just by the process of osmosis.
I didn't. When Leroy Cunningham sucker


punched me at junior high football
practice, I jerked off my helmet (which I
have since learned was my first mistake)
and went after him. He was the littlest one
of them Cunningham boys and I figured I
could whip him easy. People, my problem
was-he had a lot more older brothers than I
did. And he didn't take his helmet off!
He was mighty tough for a small guy.
And I forgot to stick and weave. I didn't
think Coach Campbell was ever going to
get over there and get between us! My right
eye was near 'bout shut and my lip was
bleeding something awful. Dad took one
look at me that afternoon and asked with a
grin, "Son, did they have to carry the other
fellow home?"
I was sitting up at the Skyway Grill in the
fall of my senior year when Hulon
Abernathy came sliding across the floor
and crashed into'our booth. Folks, my heart
sank! For several reasons!
The Skyway Grill was out on Highway
79, about halfway between us and Henry,
Tennessee. It served cold beers. You see
why I'm in trouble already. I wasn't
supposed to be here. Now, I knew better
than to order me one of those beers. I was a
big Dr. Pepper man back in those days. But
this place had the best cheeseburgers in the
world. And on Friday nights Spud
Chandler and the Ring Tones played live
music. Spud was from down around Big
Sandy and he could sing just like Jerry Lee
Lewis. They had tables up front, booths
along two walls and a fair sized dance floor
in the back. You can readily see why it was
the happening place in our little corner of
the universe in 1964.
The problem was them Henry boys. They
didn't like us coming over and "invading"
their territory. Listen, I'd seen every one of
those Henry girls. The boys didn't need to
worry! I sure liked girls back in those days,
and was almighty interested in dating, but I
wasn't desperate!
That's why I was a little surprised when
the fight broke out. Hulon, for some crazy

Chopsticks, old things

and school supplies...


Chinese food lovers in Gadsden
County will soon have another place to
practice using chopsticks.
China Buffet is slated to open in the
Grocery Outlet shopping center in
early October.
Al Wang Construction of Tampa has
begun work on the project, located at
the former Payless Shoe store at 1509
W. Jefferson St. in Quincy.
The same group who runs Empire
Chinese Restaurant in Tallahassee will
operate the restaurant.
We hear too that the old Chandler's
restaurant in Quincy Plaza will soon be
home to an Oriental dining
establishment we'll have more when
plans are finalized.

There's a new Gadsden County name
on a list of some of the country's
oldest sites: The James Dezell House
was recently added to the National
Register of Historic Places. The West
Gadsden Historical Society bought the
house in October of 2004 and is
planning to continue restoration of the
prairie-style home and use it as a
museum.. The house currently serves as
the historic society's headquarters. It's
on Highway 12 in Greensboro at 328
East 8th St.
The historical society is also
accepting submissions for its 2007
cookbook. Send your favorite recipes

Saturday is the annual Shanks High
School Class of '82 Unity in the
Community school supply give-away
from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
This year's event will be located at
Carter-Parramore Academy and is for
students in grades preK-12.
Co-chairwomn Rutha Black
estimated last week the class had
gotten donations of around 700
bookbags along with assorted school
supplies.
Class members came up with the idea
five years ago during a reunion, co-
chairwoman Monica Smart said.
"We wanted to give back to the
community. We decided to get
together and do something for
children," she said. "We started in the
parking lot of what used to be IGA -
we had about 1,000 kids in line at 6
a.m."
To stock up on the free school
supplies, kids are required to stop by
the Carter Parramore cafeteria and pick
up armbands. There's no parking in the
circle drive area, around the gym or on
the football field, and if you need a
seat, bring a lawn chair.
This year's event will include several
sessions conducted by the state
Department of Juvenile Justice,
information booths from a broad
sampling of vendors and kids'
fingerprinting.
Students must be present in order to "
receive supplies.


Letters

to the

hoE editor


Stop by your local

community health

center next week

Dear Editor:

Consumer-driven healthcare may seem like a new
idea, but few people realize that it has been around for
over 40 years saving lives. It is found in a nationwide
network of healthcare providers called community
health centers (CHCs) that are governed by patient
majority community boards.
While conventional wisdom may suggest that putting
the patients in charge might drive up the cost of health
care, the results on the front lines of public health have
been precisely the opposite: the healthcare delivered by
health centers is more cost-effective and results-driven
than anywhere else in America.
Community boards have racked up public health
successes, such as lower infant mortality rates and
reduced health disparities for chronic diseases. They
have also helped avert some public health disasters.
Dangerous pesticides in Florida were restricted after a
health center found an epidemic of skin rashes and
burning eyes among migrant farm workers. An
antibiotic-resistant strain of staphylococcus infections
was aggressively stamped out in southwest Texas with a
targeted outreach campaign from the health center.
At North Florida Medical Centers, Inc., our
community board has helped us make a real difference
in the community. Dr. Jeffery Wasserman stated,
"Gadsden Medical Center has been a part of the
Gadsden healthcare community for nearly 20 years.
Starting with one physician and two exam rooms, we
have grown to three providers and 16 exam rooms.
Through the years we have seen thousands of patients
who otherwise may not have been able to afford
healthcare without our services."
That is why this year's observance of National Health
Center Week (Aug. 6-12) celebrates the role of
consumer boards' "Patient Voice, Community Choice."
We encourage state, local and national leaders to visit a
health center and learn more about healthcare solutions
that have the power to change people's lives.
So often we read in the news about what is going
wrong with healthcare; the same ink should be devoted
to what is going right. Take the time this week and stop
by our local community health center.

Watch


out for


the big


yellow


buses...

...and the

little kids

on them.

Dear Editor:
It's that time of year again for
schools bells, backpacks, and
yellow buses. Most importantly,
it's a time when children are on
our roads and sidewalks, eager to
get to school. This is an exciting
time for both children and
parents, and we can all help to
assure them a safe start to the
school year.
Drivers need to be extra
cautious now that summer has
come to an end. Thousands of
children will be waiting at school
bus stops or walking and biking
to school, often at dawn when it
can be particularly hard to see
them.
Statistics show that one-fifth of
all children age 14 and under
who die in motor vehicle crashes
are pedestrians. Many of these
fatalities are children who run
across the street, not paying
attention to oncoming vehicles.
Children are at a disadvantage
because they are less visible to
motorists. Children are also less
capable than adults of judging
where and when it's safe to cross
the street and less likely to fully
understand the consequences of
theix potential misjudgments.
Motorists need to keep this in
mind and pay extra attention so
that we can keep the children
safe, not only in these first few
critical weeks, but throughout the
entire school year.
AAA Auto Club South will
carry out its annual "School's
Open Drive Carefully"
educational campaign throughout
the months of August and
September and AAA School
Safety Patrol members will be on
full alert at schools for dangerous
situations. We ask that all
motorists be on full alert too. The
best protection to avoid a fatal
mistake is for drivers to slow
down. Every mile per hour you
reduce your speed allows for
greater reaction time. This could
be the difference between life and
death for a child that
unexpectedly darts across the
street. And that child could be
yours!
Whether it's the beginning,
middle, or end of the year,
always remember, "School's
Open Drive Carefully."

Sojeila Orengo
Manager of Traffic Safety
Programs,
AAA Auto Club South

6 The Gadsden County Times August 3,2006


6 Gadsden schools take part


in health schools program


Six Gadsden County schools have been selected to
take part in the pilot program of the Alliance for a
Healthier Generation Healthy Schools Program, and
a representative from each one attended the Healthy
School Forum at the Clinton Presidential Library.
Local schools selected include Gretna Elementary
School, James A. Shanks Middle School, West
Gadsden High School, Havana Elementary School,
I4lavana Middle School, and East Gadsden High
School.
The Alliance for a Healthier Generation is a joint
initiative of the William J. Clinton Foundation and
the American Heart Association. The Robert Wood
Johnson foundation provided the Alliance with an
initial grant for the program.
The Healthy Schools Program is intended to make
schools healthier places for staff and students by
increasing opportunities for students to exercise,
ensuring that healthy foods and beverages are
available at all times during and after the school
day, and increasing resources for teachers and staff
to become healthy.
President Clinton and Arkansas Governor Mike


Huckabee both spoke at the Healthy School Forum.
Participants learned about actionable tools and best
practices on topics such as nutrition, physical
education, and staff wellness, in an intimate,
accessible setting. They left with will all the skills
they need to launch the Healthy Schools Program at
their school.
Each of the 200-plus schools, located in twelve
states across the country, is assigned a relationship
manager by the Alliance for a Healthier Generation.
This manager will visit the school regularly, provide
hands-on technical assistance, and work with the
School Wellness Council to ensure that the program
is being implemented properly.
In addition to hands-on technical assistance, all
participating schools will receive access to action
plans to involve the larger community in their
efforts, business assistance developing agreements
with food and fitness companies, and opportunities
to share best practices with other schools.
The Alliance plans to extend the pilot program to
thousands of schools throughout the country.

MIDWAY COMMUNITY

VISIONING PROJECT

The City of Midway, through a grant from the Florida
Department of Community Affairs and in compliance with
SB 360 passed by the Florida Legislature in 2005, will
hold a Community Visioning Workshop on Tuesday,
August 8, 2006, at 6:30 PM in the Midway Fire
Department. The Florida State University, Department of
Urban and Regional Planning, has contracted with the
City of Midway to assist the City with the Community
Visioning project. Tom Taylor from the Florida Conflict
Resolution Consortium will facilitate the meeting.
Community Visioning identifies issues and visibly makes
the community a better place to live. Although the law
provides that up to nine areas may be looked at, the
Community Visioning Project for Midway will include the
following:
(1) Priorities for economic development.
(2) Appropriate areas and standards for economic devel-
opment opportunities and employment centers.
(3) Appropriate areas and standards for mixed-use
developments.
(4) Provision for adequate workforce housing.
(5) Opportunities to create land use patterns that accom-
modate the issues listed in items 1 through 4.
One of the ultimate goals of a Community Visioning
Project is to arrive at both an urban service area and a
joint planning agreement between the City and the
County. Gadsden County held a number of community
vision meetings throughout the county and has devel-
oped an urban service area for Midway which may or
may not be consistent with the City of Midway's vision.
The City of Midway adheres to the Americans with
Disabilities Act and will make reasonable modifications
for access to this meeting upon request. Please call the
city manager at 850 574-2355 to make a request of this
nature. Requests must be received at least 48 hours in
advance of the meeting in order to allow time to provide
the requested service.
08/03c


every first Wednesday of each
month at 6 p.m. The first meeting
was 6 p.m., Aug. 2 at New Bethel
AME Church.
The self help group is for people
with cancer or for survivors of
cancer. Male cancer survivors are
also invited. For more information
please contact Catherine Moore at
850-627-7818.

Midway


Curtis to be

honored at

Kentucky

university
Curtis I. Jones of Quincy
has accepted a membership in
the National Society of
Collegiate Scholars (NSCS).
Curtis will be honored during
an induction convocation this
fall on the campus of Western
Kentucky University.
.NSCS is a member of the
Association of College Honor
Societies and is the nation's
only interdisciplinary honors
organization for first and
second-year college students.
Membership is by invitation
only, based on grade point
average and class standing.
'Mr. Jones has been
employed with the Gadsden
County School Board for
approximately six years as
program assistant for male
involvement at the Head
Start/Pre-K office.


Continued from Page 1
know what we were doing and
we do know what we were doing
and that's why we ought to
revisit it," Hinson said. "I think it
was late and nobody really
calculated what (Morris' raise)
was going to be."
The July 6 meeting lasted until
11 p.m.
Hinson, Madison and Mae Cato
were the only council members
present for the workshop, which
was to have been followed by a
special meeting to vote on the
proposed budget. The special
meeting was continued because
not enough members were there
to make up a quorum. The
council will take up Morris'
contract and the 2006-2007
budget Aug. 3 at 7 p.m.
Other issues discussed at the
workshop included a proposal to
set up a retirement fund for city,
employees.
City Manager Paul Piller said
during the workshop the city is in
good shape financially.


Because of that, he's proposing
implementation of a retirement
program for full-time city
employees and a $2,000 annual
pay raise for the city's four full-
time employees.
The proposal calls for an
amount equal to 9.85 percent of
full-time employees' salaries to
be set aside in a portable
retirement system like the Florida
Retirement System, used by state
and local government employees.
The city would contribute to the
fund, not employees.
And while the budget does not
call for raises for Piller, the
finance director and contractual
employees like the city attorney,
Madison said she'd like to see
that change.
"I think it's time for our
contractual workers and the
finance director and the city
manager to have an increase in
pay," she said. "They've been
working for the same pay rate for
five, almost six years now
working to get us out of the
hole."
Also on Thursday's agenda :
Preliminary plat review of
Taylor Ridge subdivision.


* Final plat approval for phase
II of O'rion's Pointe subdivision.
* Continuation of the July 27
public hearing on an ordinance
amending the comprehensive
plan by adopting an economic
development element.
* An update on a community
development block grant the city
garnered for infrastructure
improvements related to
development of a strip mall off
Dupont Road by Positive Visions
Inc.
A review of the city's public
record policy.
Discussion of Planning and
Zoning Board membership. o
An assessment of use of the
fire station by a youth group,
Revive to Rebuild.
First reading of an ordinance
amending the 2005-2006 budget.
An amendment to the
countywide education
concurency element.
A request from former
Midway City Councilman and
Volunteer Fire Chief Morris
Thomas to serve out the
remainder of Louis J. Parker Jr.'s
term. Parker, who held the
district one seat, died July 15.


Schools strive for healthy foods


Board's new policy for low

fat, calorie, salt diet in place

,by Leslie Roberts
Times News Editor

'Lessie Jackson says she's always strived to serve
Gadsden County students healthy foods.
With the implementation of a new federal policy
July 31 mandating public school districts
nationwide put into place a wellness policy, there's
now a fairly universal approach to establishing good
habits early.
"We're trying to educate some little, presidents,
some doctors, some astronauts," said Jackson, a
supervisor in the school district's food service
department. "Teachers, too, need good nutrition and
wellness. This wellness program is good. We're
going to try to make sure everybody, not just the
children, but the teachers and staff as well, get
educated about healthy foods and health living."
The local school board approved the policy June
27. It contains provisions that foods served in
schools be low in saturated fat, sodium and sugar,
and that portions be of appropriate sizes. Schools
will continue to offer a la carte items, as long as
they are nutritious, and staff members will be
encouraged to use something besides food as a
reward or during celebrations and school events.
The policy also calls for asking fundraiser
organizers to sell non-food items or nutritious food
items rather than candy.
It emphasizes physical activity as a way to stay
healthy and mentally sharp, and stresses education
as one way to build healthy routines that last a


lifetime.
Think more whole grains, low-fat milk, turkey
sausage, fruits and vegetables, less apple cobbler,
fried French fries and fried chicken.
Schools began serving some of those items last
year, Gadsden County Food Service Director Tom
Hollern said, so it won't be a complete shock when
students find carrots and celery on their plates.
"It's a gradual move," he said. "We're catering to
quite a different group of taste buds. Down the road,
I'd like to make our own pizzas use a whole-wheat
dough, make some Mexican pizzas. But through
October and November we'll be trying to get rid of
some of our old inventory, so the transition will take
a while."
One person who is glad to see such a
comprehensive health effort aimed at kids is Beryl
Richardson, coordinator of a heart disease, stroke
and diabetes prevention program for the Gadsden
County Health Department.
"I think it's wonderful," Richardson said. "It's
preventive everybody's looking to do these things.
Kids are at our mercy more than almost any other
population if they aren't served healthy food, they
have to eat what's put in front of them."
School nurses and health aides will work with
teachers, food service workers and administrators to
educate kids about healthy habits.
"I see a whole, new era of cooperation with
schools," Richardson said. "Teachers can use health
examples to teach to the FCAT. And kids are going
to be much more alert and awake."
Lunch prices will be the same as last year $1 for
breakfast, $1.25 for lunch and 40 cents for reduced
meal participants. Those are the lowest school meal
prices in the state, Hollern said.

Funds available for tree
management program

Florida Department of
Agriculture and Consumer
Services offers a program that
will help people who own
forestland to manage that
resource.
The department's Division of
Forestry will hold a sign-up for
enrollment in the Forest Land
Enhancement Program (FLEP)
from Aug. 4 through Sept. 15.
This program, authorized under
the 2002 Farm Bill, is available
to non-industrial private forest
landowners on a 75 to 25 percent
cost share basis for most
practices.
Eligible practices include, but
,are not limited to: site


preparation, tree planting, and
prescribed burning activities.
Landowners who own at least 10
acres but no more that 10,000
acres of land who have a
multiple-resource practice plan
will be eligible to receive funding
assistance under FLEP.
A maximum of $10,000 will be
available for each qualifying
landowner over the life of the
program as reimbursement for
incurred expenses for approved
practices.
According to national, regional
and statewide landowner surveys,
most forest landowners don't
have a management plan for their
property. The state's allocation
under the program will be used
for implementation of forest
practices prescribed in existing or
newly-developed management
plans.
Landowners can obtain
application forms from their local
Division of Forestry office and
from other cooperating agencies.
The Division of Forestry's
foresters will provide technical
assistance to landowners and will
be the local contact person for
participating landowners. For
more information, contact
Michael R. Renwick, senior
forester, Gadsden County at 850-

Camp brings fun of Florida Sheriffs Youth Ranch to Quincy:


40 local children

participated in the

Florida Sheriffs

Youth Ranch

mobile camp

by Brian Dekle
Times Intern

Some local children got a taste
of the Florida Sheriff's Youth
Ranch from the comfort of home
last week, thanks to a local camp
sponsored by the Sheriff's
organization.
Counselors representing the
Florida Sheriff's Youth Ranch
"set up camp" at Shanks Middle
School last week, conducting
activities with area youth similar
to those held at the youth ranch,
located in Barberville, Fla.
Around 40 campers participated
in team sports, games, created


arts and crafts, learned about
personal wellness, environmental
protection and more at the day
camp, held Monday through
Friday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
"The model of the camp is to
prevent juvenile delinquency, and
promote being a productive
citizen to Florida children,"
Francesca LeGrand, site director,
said. "A lot of the children at the
camp have young parents that let
them do whatever they want.
We're giving them something to
do that's structured. They can be
at camp instead of just doing
whatever they want."
Local sheriff's deputies also
come and talk with children about
the importance of staying out of
trouble and being a good citizen.
Many children who participate
in the camp show real character
improvement and progress from
Monday to Friday, LeGrand said.
"At first basically all the kids
wanted to do whatever. They
were running their mouths, acting


like they would at home, and
some didn't want to be there. By
the end of the week they wanted
to come. In fact, one child was
upset because he didn't want to
go with his family to Six Flags
and instead wanted to come to
camp. That really touches me,"
LeGrand said.
The Quincy camp last week was
just one of many camps
conducted throughout Florida
during the summer months aimed
at bringing the amenities and
actitivities of the Florida Sheriff's
Youth Ranch to different
communities and children who
aren't financially able to travel to
the youth ranch in Barberville.
The camp is free and includes
transportation, breakfast, lunch
and snacks.
LeGrand said the camp can take
up to 60 kids, and they would like
to see more from Quincy get
involved next year. For more
information, she said, contact the
Gadsden County Sheriff's Office.

Gretna gets $400,000 for parks

Sen. Alfred Lawson presented the Gretna City Commission with two checks for $200,000 each at
Tuesday night's commission meeting. The city will use the funds, part of 'a Department of
Environmental Protection grant, for phase three and four of improvements on Park Street Park in
Gretna. Pictured, l-r, Councilwoman Helen Frank, Councilman Willie Fagg, Lawson, Mayor Nadine
Smith, Councilman Anthony Baker, and Councilman John Smith.

needs to look closely at what
has been done at the park under
Ford's watch before deciding on
whether to hire him as the
project's primary contractor or
developer.
The commission decided to
hold a special meeting and
conduct an onsite study of the
park this Friday at 6 p.m. The
meeting, open to the public, will
begin at the municipal building
and will then adjourn to the park
for hands-on examination.
Commissioners also heard
Tuesday a monthly report from
KMR Consultants, LLC, whom
the city has hired to complete
various projects within the city.
KMR officials told the
Commission they were wrapping
up interviews with city workers
to determine what they actually
do versus their job description, as
part of KMR's staff classification
plan for Gretna. Following the
interviews the firm will conduct
salary surveys of different city
jobs compared to those in other


cities of similar size.
KMR officials added their next
major project is revamping water
and sewer for Gretna.
The firm is also working on
audit preparation, a plan for
record retention,
disaster/emergency plans, an
industrial park marketing plan,
code enforcement plans and
more, all of which is underway
and on schedule, KMR officials
told the Commission.
In other business Tuesday
night:
*Commissioners approved a
payment change on the city's
state revolving loan from $2,860
to $2,286, biannually.
*Cormnissioners approved
adding Jefferson to the city's list
of authorized signatures on city
checks.
*Commissioners voted to make
Aug. 1 Jefferson's official
starting date with a base salary of
$50,500 annually, rather than
wait two weeks as originally
planned. The commission has not
yet voted on Jefferson's contract,
which includes his benefit
package.
*Financial Consultant Bill


Bogan told commissioners he
would present the 2002-2003
audit at the regular meeting next
month. He also said the budget is
85 percent complete, and only
wastewater and debt service
items needs to be looked at
presently.

unknown reason, had asked
Patricia Updike to dance. Hulon
lived just down the street from
me and was fairly normal. Pat
Updike wasn't the ugliest girl in
Henry....but she would have been
in the top three, easily! Ruth Ann
Wiley said later she had to be a
first cousin to the Creature from
the Black Lagoon!
Well, I'm sitting there,
munching on a cheeseburger,
sipping my Dr. Pepper, listening
to "Great Balls of Fire" and
mostly minding my on business
when Hulon's head crashes into
Jane Hill's leg. Jane, bless her
heart, looks up at me like I'm
duty bound to defend Hulon's
honor.
I look over toward the dance
floor and there stands Big Nose
Lajoie. You've got to be kidding
me! Pam Collins, who is even
less subtle than Jane, says,
"Well".
I get up but I'm thinking about
all the fights I haven't won as I
move unsteadily toward Big
Nose. And I wishing I had my
football helmet. I glance around
to see if any of my life long
friends are coming to my rescue.
I pause a minute, hoping Hulon
will rush by, attacking Big Nose.
I figured I might as well get in
the first punch but as I stepped in
close a bottle crashed behind the
bandstand, someone yelled and,
as they would say at ringside, all
bedlam broke loose. Something
or somebody hit me up side the
head and I don't recall much after
that. I remember that Spud and
the boys never stopped playing
through it all. I know Slick Tosh,
the owner, was one mad guy. I
remember Patty Updike standing
over me when I came to. I
remember the police asking all
sorts of questions about how it
started. I remember I couldn't see
out of my right eye for a week.
And Mom couldn't get the blood
out of my shirt.
And I remember Dad shaking
his head and saying, "Son, if
fighting and bar hopping is what
you're inclined to....you'd better
find another line of work."

Respectfully,
Kes

Contemplations

teachers succeed. Teachers may
see themselves as coaches while
the parents are the cheerleaders.


As the school year begins,
parents ought to be on the same
page as the administrators and
the teachers. Children easily
pick up on anything they can
use to drive a wedge. Parents
have no need to buy into that
because in the long run, the
person hurt the most will be the
child.
There is little to be
accomplished without
teamwork. The most successful
endeavors begin and end with a
solid team of individuals that
have the same goal. If our
children are to be successful, it
will take everyone working
together.

Gadsden WIC
celebrates world
breastfeeding week

Gadsden County WIC
(Supplemental Nutrition
Program for Women, Infants
and Children) will honor
Gadsden County residents
Laura King, Leilani Osmin and
Kimberly Rittman with a
graduation ceremony during
this year's World Breastfeeding
Week celebration.
The celebration will be held
from 2 to 4 p.m., Thursday,
Aug. 3 in the conference room
of the Gadsden County Health
Department in Quincy.
The women completed a 20-hr
Breastfeeding Peer Counselor
Training program and as peer
counselors, are important new
additions to WIC's program
that encourages, supports and
protects breastfeeding.
What does "protect
breastfeeding" mean and how
can we as individuals and a
community do that? Come to
the party and find out!
Chris Odahowski, the
children's librarian for the
Gadsden County Library, will
read stories (breastfeeding helps
with reading) and play games
with families. Women who are
currently breastfeeding or have
breastfed will be recognized
and there will be opportunities
to have fun learning more about
breastfeeding and how to help
women breastfeed for as long as
they and their children desire.
The Gadsden WIC program
follows The American
Academy of Pediatrics and the
World Health Organization
guidelines that recommend a
child be breastfed totally, with

no other food or drinks, for
about six months and then
continue to be breastfed for a
year or two or longer with the
addition of appropriate other
foods. Optimal, life-long health
for children and mothers is
achieved when these
recommendations are followed.
Breastfeeding protects against
infant death, diabetes, obesity,
certain cancers, ear infections,
asthma and many other
problems. During disasters and
emergency situations, such as
hurricanes, breastfeeding offers
safe, uninterrupted nutrition,
comfort and health. Other ways
of infant feeding do not offer
these protections. Medical
conditions that prevent
breastfeeding are rare.
Everyone is welcome at the
World Breastfeeding Week
open house. Refreshments will
be served.

County's only animal



welfare organization



may lack a building,



but is long on caring



July's 12 adoptions is banner month


by Leslie Roberts
Times News Editor

Sassy survived being thrown out of a
moving vehicle on Interstate 10, but she still
needs a place to live.
The tan, three-year-old bull mastiff mix was
also heartworm positive when she was
brought to the Gadsden County Humane
Society two years ago.
President Michele Vaught says Sassy's story
is fairly typical for the animals the
organization takes in.
"The majority of the dogs we take in are
heartworm positive. It's expensive rarely do
we have any animal come into the program
that's not sick, or needs its shots or needs to
be spayed and neutered. Treatment for
heartworms can range from $300-$500."
The Gadsden County Humane Society, a no-
kill shelter, has been around for about 10
years.
The organization does not have a building in
which to house animals. Instead, Vaught takes
cats into her own home, and vice-president
Billie Blaine houses dogs in her home.
The two each work full-time in Tallahassee
and often wind up spending their own money
on animals' care, they say.
"We are the only animal welfare
organization in Gadsden County. We need
money, we need fosters and we need


Congressman Allen Boyd (D-North Florida)
hosted a meeting Tuesday in Tallahassee with
the District Healthcare Council to discuss
local healthcare issues and concerns,
including federal appropriations requests and
rural hospitals in North Florida.
The District Healthcare Council is
comprised of 24 representatives from 16
counties across North Florida. .
"Access to quality, affordable healthcare is
a critical part of American life," said Boyd.
"Although much more needs to be done in
Washington, there is more that we can do at
home as well. It is my hope that the District
Healthcare Council will start thinking
regionally, so the counties can come together
and pool their resources to improve the
overall quality of healthcare in North
Florida."
Locally, the Gadsden Community Health
Council has worked on initiatives including a
half-cent sales tax that will go to help provide
affordable healthcare for underinsured and
uninsured here.
The tax, approved for referendum by the
Gadsden County Commission July 18, is
expected to raise around $1.3 million and will
be on the Nov. 7.-ballot.
The four initial components of the local plan
include improving Gadsden County's neo-
natal and infant survival and health; reducing
the incidence of sexually-transmitted disease;
increasing health lifestyle choices and as a
result lowering the occurrence of type 2
diabetes, stork, cancer and heart disease.
At Tuesday's meeting, Boyd had two main
objectives for the District Healthcare Council.
The first objective was for the council to
focus on regionalized problem solving.
Boyd encouraged members of the District
Healthcare Council to consider the healthcare
concerns of surrounding counties as well as
their particular county.
The second objective was to push the
counties to work more closely with state and
local- agencies and make them active
participants in achieving the healthcare goals


volunteers," Blaine said.
The society is looking for fosters who will
commit to providing care, shelter, food and
transportation to animals throughout the
whole process, Blaine said, and it is
sometimes up to a year before an animal is
adopted.
Fosters are also required to transport animals
they care for to Petsmart in Tallahassee every
other Sunday in order to give the animal a
chance to be adopted.
Adoptions have gone pretty well this year,
Vaught said, starting off strong in the first few
months, dropping in April, May and June, but
picking up last month.
"July was wonderful. We had 12 adoptions,
which is fantastic that's a banner month,"
Vaught said.
The adoption fee for one cat or dog is $80
and includes a vet exam, shots and spay or
neuter.
The two have a long wish list: they're
looking for volunteers for a variety of duties,
including answering voice mail messages,
transporting animals, and manning -the
society's booth at Petsmart.
They want a donation of land and a building
for a shelter.

Seminole Ramlins'

by Jack Wingate


Some 70 years ago when I was
a young boy, we dreaded dog
days, which comes in July 28
and last till Sept. 5th. Among the
many things that we feared, was,
ground itch, sore eyes, mad dogs,
mad foxes, coons, possums.
Clovetean salve was used on our
eyes each morning to sofen the
lids so with warm water they
could be prized open.
Folks from our stand point bass
fishen started off slow & then
tapered off, but not so slow as the
fishen on Lake Norman where a 5
fish limit of fish in W.B.F.L.
(Ladies Bass) tipped the scales at
a measly 81bs, we had one boat
report 2 1/2 hrs fishen 1 bite but
he wieghed 7 1/2 lbs. We have
had lots of good bass taken but
not many of them in numbers.
Our bream has been, Walkin


Tall as has our shellcracker. We
have had cases where the bream
would not take crickets but would
eat a worm soon as it dropped in
a bed. One man reported he had
caught The Biggest Bream "
ever on Lake Seminole. Three
fingered bream is the best
average fish over all, they all
taste good fried up brown.
We still have had speckle perch
hitting all week long on jigs, one
boat reported good catch on small
jiggin spoons. Why in the heat of
the summer ??
Our hybreds had been a hit &
miss situation all week long until
Sunday when Mr. Edmonds Jr. &
Mr. McKeller Jr. of Moultrie Ga.
took a whopping big box of them
on jiggn spoons. Maybe they will
settle down and give us some
more good ones this week.


In the 16 years of the Tri-states
water 4lars, the Judge in Alabama
at least has made a stand, it may
not be what we wanted to hear,
but a tleast a stand. One mite say
It's like mixen axel grease with

doesn't suffer much but the sweet

Quincy natives making noise


in Tallahassee music industry


by Brian Dekle
Times Intern
Two Quincy natives turned musical entrepreneurs
are making some noise in Tallahassee with a full-
scale professional recording studio.
Adaryll Lee, 26, and Charles Gee, 24, of Quincy,
along with Mohammad Makki, a degree-holding
audio engineer from Oklahoma, have been key
pioneers in the recording industry in Tallahassee for
two years with a full scale audio and video
production studio'.
The trio has provided an outlet for countless local
musicians, mainly hip-hop and R & B artists such as
Tallahassee's "Supacell," to get their sonic
samplings on tape, or existing demos remixed and
mastered.
Artists reserve time in the studio at the variable
rate of $40 an hour, laying down tracks and working
with engineers to tweak their sound and create a
recording with quality impossible to achieve outside
of a professional setting.
Some music groups actually write much of their
material in the studio, spending hours finely tuning
lyrics and instrumentation, while others attempt to
breeze through a song an hour for a demo recording.
Gee said the average demo session lasts several
hours, despite many inexperienced artists' beliefs
that songs can be tackled in, a few minutes.
After a demo is created, musicians have the option
of "mastering" their recording, a process called
"post-production" by those in the recording business
that involves hours of tedious reworking and
working closely with engineers.
"The recordings may be quality, but post-
production is a whole other side," Gee said.
"Mastering is a completely separate process (from
recording). The person is highly involved, and when
they're ready to go to the next level they sit down
by the hour and tweak their sound until they get it
exactly how they want it."
More than just a music studio, however, ad jingles,
television commercials, and even video
documentaries are also produced in the trio's
facility, which recently moved to a spacious new
location on Tennessee Street.
The new location features a large recording booth
with condenser microphones, sound-absorbing foam
and more, and ample room for instruments and more
than one musician to record at the same time.
Another room features a large space for recording
video.
A Macintosh G5 and Pro-Tools, a powerful digital,
computer-based recording system made famous by
big-name artists such as Lenny Kravitz, largely
power the studio's operations, along with a 32-track
mixer, Yamaha Motif synthesizer, rack effects and
compressors, and much more.
Lee and Gee say they decided on their current
setup from years of talking with other audio
engineers and their experiences with recording their
own music in -numerous other studios, which
ultimately sparked the idea to start a studio in the
first place.
"We write music .ourselves," Lee explained.
"Studio time for us was getting costly, so we
thought it would be better to reinvest money into
our own studio rather than continuing to travel back
and forth to Atlanta (to record in other studios). It's
certainly been a good investment."
"We've learning a lot in these seven years (of
recording music). We've done a lot of music and
visited a lot of different studios and seen a lot of
different setups," Gee concurred.
The Quincy natives, who perform hip hop music
under the aliases "Big Lee" and "Playboi," moved
back home two years ago ago from Atlanta and
opened the studio, which now serves 10 to 20 artists
in an average week.
"There's not a big demand here (for a recording

studio) compared to Atlanta, but there's also not as
much competition, especially with a full scale, up
and running studio. But we felt we could create a
demand," Lee said.
"Tallahassee is close enough to home that we felt
we could get support from local fans. So we opened
up the door to other up and coming artists as a place
to record at a reasonable price," Gee added.
Gee and Lee began their musical aspirations as
little more than something fun to do. "We used to do
it as a hobby and for fun,but before long friends
told us 'ya'll are pretty good at it.' We've just been
building on that crowd taking it seriously. To
rhyme, we always did that just for fun," Lee
explained:
The group has now built a healthy area following,
performing live at venues in Tallahassee, Quincy
and beyond. Most recently the two, who graduated
from James A. Shanks High School, performed at
the Quincy Car Show about a month ago.

Dear Gadsden, Liberty & Calhoun
County Residents,
Three years ago I obtained my Florida

three things made car shopping a big

*Haggling for the best price
*Having to come up with $2000 to $3000
for a down payment, taxes, title and tag

Members of Big Bend Ghost Trackers take "center stage" at the Leaf Theatre Saturday to determine if the old movie house is
haunted. They say they have possible visual evidence of spirits.


Ghost Trackers say Leaf is 'certified haunted place'


where ghosts lurk in the dark for more than 50 years

Story and Photos by Brian Dekle, Times Intern


. Is the Leaf Theatre haunted by the ghost of
a former movie projector operator?
Patrons of the historic moviehouse-turned
live action theatre have often asked that
question over the years after strange
sightings and activitity, and an area
paranormal investigation group may have
finally come up with an answer.
Believe what you wish, but according to
the Big Bend Ghost Trackers of Monticello,
Fla., Quincy's own Leaf Theatre is indeed a
"certified haunted place," where ghosts of
Quincy's past lurk in the dark corners and
seat rows of the more than 50 year old
theatre.
The group conducted a formal haunting
investigation of the Leaf Saturday that
yielded eery presence, contact with spirits
and even possible visual evidence of ghostly
habitation in the form of "orbs," perfectly-
round balls of light that ghost trackers say
carry the leftover energy of the dead.
Local theatre-goers need not be alarmed,
however, as the Big Bend Ghost Trackers,
led by director and founder Betty Davis,
found no evidence of unfriendly or
unwelcoming ghosts at the Leaf.
To the average skeptic paranormal
investigation or "ghost hunting" may seem
nothing more than superstitious hooey
perforined by eccentrics who just like to
hang out in dark old buildings waiting for ai
"boo" or "bump in the night."
On the contrary, ghost hunting involves
meticulous research using high-tech
audiovisual and sensory equipment, and
Saturday's hunt by ghost trackers Davis,
Lisa Guancial, Valynda Nichols, Lacey
White, Scott Tepperman, and Ron Bordner,
was no exception.
Following a "circle," a time when ghost
trackers meditate, ask for protection and
request only the best, highest and strongest
spirits to make themselves known, the Big
Bend Ghost Trackers began waving wands,
taking random digital and 35 mm film
photos, recording any Electronic Voice
Phenomena (EVP), and viewing infared

through an infared camera and monitor.
The video will be reviewed later this week
to see if any ghosts passed by, revealed by
"orbs," small, spherical balls of light;
"ectoplasm," a misty, fog-like light
residue; or "apparitions," a full or
partially-formed ghost image that can be
solid, transparent or appear in other
forms.

Every August and September in the United States, nnIruons of kids return to their school studies. This time is
^^Sk itB I ~commonly called, Bacd to School". There are many different types of school programs beginning at this time, such as
,' /, elementary school, middle school, .and high school, as well as colleges and universities. People of all ages attend
Sj school to learn many differenri things Elementary school is for children ages 5 to 10, middle school is for ages 11 to 13,
and high school is for children ages 14 to 17, or 18 depending on their birthday. At the end of high school you graduate
"; from your grade school studies and at this time you can decide whether or not you will attend college or university.
College or university is for any age group that has completed high school. Colleges and universities are schools
... iL where you can further your studies, in addition to what you have learned in grade school.
Though colleges and universities are common referred to as one in the same, when you attend a small college, you are usually there to obtain a two year degree. This
two year degree may be an Associate's degree,,such as a teaching assistant degree. If you choose to attend a university, you will study for an additional four to five years
and receive a Bachelor's or Master's degree, such as a Master's of Elementary Education, in order to become an elementary school teacher. Students at colleges and
universities, instead of learning a little bit of information about many things, such as math, science, language, and history, you learn a lot about a few specific things. For
example, you may want to become a history teacher, thus you would go to university for four years and learn specifically about history and how to teach. This would thus
prepare you to one day be a history teacher.
It's important to get ready to go back to school every year. One thing you may need to do is gather your school supplies together. You may need a back pack, lunch box,
notebooks, pens or pencils, crayons, pencil sharpener, ruler, and maybe even a calculator. Another good thing to do to prepare for the first day of school is to.learn your
teacher's name before you start class. If you are attending a new school, it may help to ask a parent or adult to take you to the school and learn your way to your new
home room. This can make the first day of school easier for you. Remember to check with the school before hand to make sure it's okay with them. Whatever you do to
prepare for the first day of school, make sure ou remember that even though school is a lot of work, but that it's also a lot of fun!! Across:
