weekend

accidents

by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
It was a tragic weekend for
Gadsden County teens. Two
separate automobile accidents
were responsible for the death of
one teenager and the
hospitalization of eight more.
A single-car crash in Midway
early Saturday night took the life
of 16-year-old Camelia Byrd of
Midway. The East Gadsden High
School junior was a passenger in
the car driven by 19-year-old
Tercina Jordan. According to a
report issued by the Florida
Highway Patrol, Jordan was
headed west on Brick Yard Road
(about two miles off U.S.
Highway 90) driving a 2006
Hyundai Sonata about 7 p.m. The
report stated that Jordan was
driving beyond the 25 miles per
hour speed limit. She may have
lost control of the vehicle while
trying to navigate a curve. The
car landed on the southbound
shoulder and struck a tree,
causing the car to spin clockwise.
The passengers in the car,
Jamelia Chantler, 16; Whitney
Marshall, 15; Tinisha Marshall,
15; Monica Steele, 12; and
Christeegai Price, 15 were taken
to Tallahassee Memorial Hospital
where they were listed in serious
condition. By Tuesday their
conditions had improved.
The 12-year-old, Monica
Steele, was transferred to Shands
Children's Hospital in
Gainesville with multiple
fractures to her pelvis and other
injuries. The driver, Jordan, is
said to have suffered minor

Quincy budget at $36 million


Millage rate unchanged;

Bogan: Most bills paid

by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

With a little tweaking here and there, the
City of Quincy's budget will pass as a
balanced document of around $36 million.
The proposed budget' was presented to
commissioners last Wednesday night
during the first budget workshop.


"We worked tirelessly and diligently to
get a balanced budget to you. The city can
expect a growth in reserves as a result of
holding the line with the exception of fuel
costs," said City Manager Bill Bogan. The
millage rate for the city will remain at 2.75
mills.
Other savings, according to Bogan, have
been the result of employees toeing the
line on P-Card ptirchases. "I simply asked
them to treat the citizens money as they
would treat their own. If they would not
buy it for themselves, then don't buy it for
the city," he said.
Calling the staff's efforts to save money


herculean, he said therehas been a new
spirit throughout the government.
The budget also contains a two percent
cost of living increase for employees and a
two percent merit pay increase. Money
will also be saved on a modified hiring
freeze in all departments, except the police
department. "There are a number of
positions approved but are not filled. That
will save us as money," Bogan said.
Commissioners were told that with the
exception of OMI and Waste Management
most of the bills have been paid. "They are
our two largest payables and we feel we
have worked it out (with them) to get


caught up," Bogan said. He added that the
city was within $50,000 of repaying the
$750,000 borrowed last year.
"So, you're saying I don't have to worry
about being in arrears at the end of 2007?"
asked Mayor Sherrie Taylor.
"There is not a government that doesn't
carry payables forward because it's a
matter of timing," he said.
"I will tell you that two years from now
we won't be having this discussion."
Commissioner Andy Gay wanted to
know if the manager had addressed the
money that the city owed to the

Firemen from the Quincy Fire Department extinguished the fire Wednesday morning at 213 Clay
Street in Quincy.


Fire destroys Clay St. home


No one was injured last Wednesday morning in a
fire that destroyed a rental home at 213 Clay Street
in .Quincy. The home was rented to James Favors,
46, who was not at home at the time.
The origin of the fire, which caused damages in
excess of $25,000 is still unknown.
According to a report released by the Quincy Fire,
Department, David Thomas, whose wife owns the
house, was getting ready to paint around 11 a.m.
when she smelled smoke.


Thrmas called the fire department, but when they
arrived the house was fully involved. "Putting the
fire out was more complicated because of a double
roof on the house," the report stated.
The fire is under investigation because no one was
at home at the time of the fire and the doors were
locked.
The American Red Cross aided Favors by giving
him $286 for food, clothing, and lodging.

It took vision, hard work and
dedication.
But in the end, the state
Department of Education saw
things Shirley Aaron's way.
Aaron, the founder of "I Can," a
volunteer literacy program geared
toward under-achieving students
in Gadsden County, learned
Saturday that DOE has agreed to
fund a complimentary program -
"I Can Too" based largely in
part on the proposal she wrote
asking them to do so.
"Many of our parents want to
do better. They want their
children to do better," said
Gadsden County Schools
Superintendent Reginald James
Saturday at an I Can workshop at
Havana Middle School. "This
program really touches me
because it really goes to the heart

Elias wants FDLE probe into Quincy finances


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
Despite the forensic auditors report that
found "no fraud" in the City of Quincy's
finance department, Commissioner
Derrick Elias said during Tuesday night's
regular meeting of the city commission
that he wants to "call in the Florida
Department of Law Enforcment (FDLE)
and Willie Meggs (state attorney) for an
investigation "
"We go after people for small things. The
state went after a former (city)
commissioner for less than $200 and took
it almost to the Supreme Court," Elias
said.
He was referring to former
Commissioner Glendell Russ who was
prosecuted for allegedly inappropriately
using $100 meant to be spent on Christmas
presents for children in his district.
Elias said it is important that
commissioners demonstrate that they are
good stewards of the citizens' money. "We
have a fiduciary responsibility," Elias said.
He pointed out that it would not cost the
city any money if FDLE or Meggs' office
conducted an investigation. Elias stated
that he was disappointed in the forensic
auditors because they left a number of
questions unanswered.


"For the money we paid them (up to
$110,000 now) I thought we should have
gotten more," he said.
His main concern was about the "amount


of money out
there" that he
feels has not
been accounted
for properly.
Those include
but are not
limited to
overpaid vendors
and pay
advances to
staff.
City Attorney
Jack McLean
said he and the
city manager
were already
investigating
several of Elias'
concerns. He
said they should
be careful about
making public
the names of


dark about the investigations. McLean said
he would sit down with Elias in the near
future to give him the names. "There are
about 12 to 15," McLean said.

individuals who might be involved. "I can

But Elias said that he wanted names

But he warned
that in at least one
case, already
completed, the
employee was
found to have taken
care of the financial
obligation with the
city in the a proper
and timely manner.
Commissioner
Andy Gay said he
would like to look
into appointing an
auditing committee,
on recommendation
of the forensic
auditors, as soon as
possible.
In other matters,
City Manager Bill
Bogan presented
commissioners with
a PowerPoint


presentation on the the Code Enforcement
Office.
From May through July 2005, 75 notices
,were issued and 56 percent came into


voluntary compliance. For the same period,
in 2006, 99 notices were issued with 66-
percent of them voluntarily, coming intd
compliance.
Bogan showed about 15 "before and
after" photos of homes and businesses that
had been cited but had made marked
improvements in cleaning up their
properties. "People have taken pride in
their properties now," he said.
Bogan said he plans to ask
commissioners in the near future to
approve an ordinance that has "more
teeth" in it for enforcement purposes.
Hopefully, he said, the voluntary
compliances will increase.
Lt. Tom Murray, code enforcement
director, said there are violations all over
the city and that he could write citations all
day everyday. "You have to talk to people
and tell them what they are doing wrong."
Murray said.
He told commissioners that they could be
assured that the code enforcement was
doing it job.
Bogan said. he is planning a public
information campaign to inform citizens.
"You have to let people know that we're
here to help them and to advise them, but
also that we will no longer tolerate trash
and debris. Quincy is a beautiful city," he
said.

In sweltering heat under a
cloudless August sky, ground-
breaking for the new public


library at Chattahoochee was
made official Friday.
Work on the $1 million facil-
ity began several weeks ago, but
Friday morning was designated
for the official ceremony.
Beaming more than anyone
was Commissioner Derrick
Price, who represents
Chattahoochee and the sur-
rounding area.
"I'm just so happy for the
people of Chattahoochee. This
library is a good thing for the
entire community, especially the

children," Price said.
The library is located across
the street from Chattahoochee
Elementary School.
Jane Mock, director of the
county's public library system,
said the new library is more than
twice the size of the former
library.
"We're very excited. It will
be more visible from U.S. 90,"
she said. The old library was on
Main Street in a building owned
by the City of Chattahoochee.
She said she also hopes to
extend the hours of the library.
"That will depend on the
budget and the Board of County
Commissioners," she said.
In addition to 12 new public
computers, there will be storage
for CDs and DVDs at the new
facility.
The 6,200 square-foot library
was, made possible through a
grant from the State of Florida.

Federal "No Child Left
Behind" legislation left a few
Gadsden County school district
paraprofessionals in the lurch at
the beginning of the month.
Along with school choice
and accountability measures
within the legislation is a
requirement that paraprofes-
sionals upgrade their certifica-
tion in order to remain
employed.
Under the legislation, enact-
ed in 2001, paraprofessionals
were given five years to earn
either an associate's degree, 60
college credit hours or to pass a
state exam with a score of 464
or higher.
Those who didn't do so are
now out of a job.
"As a result of that federal
legislation, 23 paraprofessionals
did not meet the criteria,"
Gadsden County Schools
Superintendent Reginald James
said.

GED registration set

Registration for the
September General Education
Diploma (GED) test will be

a.m. and 5:30 p.m.
Registration requirements
for individuals 18 or older are
two valid identifications and
$50 (cash or money order

tration. Candidates may regis-
ter for parts of the GED test.
Approximate time for first-
time registrars is two hours
and will start promptly at the
stated times. Seating is limit-
ed. This will take place in the

"Even so, some local princi-
pals rehired or reassigned some
of them. A number of these
employees had been with the
school district for years. We
value all employees unfortu-
nately, No Child Left Behind
negatively impacted our
employees and there's nothing
we can do about it."
Gadsden County's passing
score for the test paraprofes-
sionals are required to take is the
same as the state's 464. Only
one county, Duval, set a lower
passing score that the state's.
"We don't require parapro-
fessionals to score any higher,"
James said.
James said he is considering
asking the school board to hire
some of the paraprofessionals
who didn't meet NCLB criteria
as substitute teachers.
"One idea I'll present to the
board is the possibility of hiring
some as permanent subs," he
said.
The next school board meet-
ing is Aug. 29.

Homeless...and in school.


Lawson deals with nearly 900 'homeless' in Gadsden Co.


by Leslie Roberts
Times News Editor

Last year, 879 of Gadsden County public school students were
classified as homeless.
This year, the same number maybe more will fall into that cat-
egory.
That's where the Gadsden County School District's homeless lia-
son comes in.
Sandra Lawson, who took the role a year ago, is in charge of
helping to identify homeless students through surveys she sends into
classrooms at each of the county's 15 schools.
"I taught school for many years and decided I'm a helper, so I
applied for the job," she said. "My main purpose there is to help the
kids. I think if you can help their families, you can improve their
education. And Gadsden County is a place where we need a lot of
assistance."
Students in several living situations are classified as homeless:


Those who are foster children waiting to be placed: those living in
substandard homes: those living in cars, buses or abandoned build-
ings and any living with someone who is not their parent.
Gadsden County, however, does not have a homeless shelter, and
Lawson, who is also the coordinator of faith-based programs for the
local school system, often winds up calling shelters in Tallahassee
or local churches willing to lend a hand.
"It's like this everywhere I call they say, 'We'll put them on the
list.' That doesn't help them if they need a place today," she said.
Once Lawson gets the survey results sorted, she sends that data
to the state Department of Education, which gives the local program
a grant. Lawson uses the grant money to distribute uniforms and
school supplies to homeless students, who also have access to a tuto-
rial program during the summer and medical and dental care
through the program.
For more information about the program, or to make a donation,
contact Lawson at 627-9651, ext. 495.

of that."
Looking at ways to implement
his community initiative, James
talked to Aaron, a retired Florida
State University library and
information studies professor.
"Lo and behold, on her own,
she developed I Can," he said. "I
never met anybody more
passionate about what they're
doing that Dr. Aaron."
School Board member Eric
Hinson also had high praise for
Aaron.
"She is outstanding, and this
program is awesome," he said.
I Can, or Interactive
Community Advocacy Network,
is offered to students at Havana
Elementary School in grades pre-
K through three who are
recommended by their teachers
because they are at-risk and
functioning below grade level. It
started in December of last year
after James' conversation with
Aaron.
"We're thankful to
Superintendent James for his
vision, but much more
importantly for his support," said,
Joan Mercer, who coordinated
Saturday's workshop. "His vision
was that a group of volunteers
could, would and did make a
difference."
After being assigned a student,
volunteer I Can mentors meet
with the child's teacher and
observe the student in the
classroom. They conduct two
tutoring sessions with the student


in the classroom before going to
the child's home, where they
offer the family literacy' p iiii ...
to parents and the student at least
weekly.
"The families we deal with, the
school almost never sees," Aaron
said. "We are recognizing they
are not coming to the school, so
we are bringing the mountain to
Mohammed."
Volunteers often intervene on
behalf of students with teachers
and give them a fuller picture of
the child's home environment,
Aaron said.
"Teachers think if parents don't
come to school, they don't care -
these parents love their children.
They are functioning in some
really difficult situations.
Actually, I think most of our
parents are heroic. There seems
to be a tendency among all of us
to label people ... we are helping
people who might have identified
students as failures change their
minds. 'We are connecting, and
that's what this program is
about."
I Can Too will be geared toward
parents of 1 Can participants.
Volunteers who've been certified
as GED teachers will visit the
homes of participants twice a
week and offer them
individualized instruction.
"We believe the parents will
bloom just as their children did,"
Aaron said.
Last year, I Can served around
32 students. There are around
150 at Havana Elementary who
could benefit from the program,
Aaron said; there are just not
enough volunteers to reach them
all. For more information, call
Aaron at 539-9372.

Skijnker down

with


Kes

When we hunker down to talk, we're all on the same level.
by Kesley Colbert, just a good ole boy that likes to write.


Hey, I've Got It Made!


It's just a little lie.
Folks ask me about the boys. And I
immediately say they are "doing fine". And
they are!
That is not the lie.
Then they will ask how Cathy and I are
doing "by ourselves". And let me hasten to
point out these questions come from good
friends. Our boys are "community grown".
These friends aren't asking to pass the time
of day. They had a son in the little league
program with one, or both, of the boys.
They had a daughter that called our house
from time to time. They shared a cold
bleacher at a late night football game. They
taught a Sunday School class where Josh
asked all the questions.... and Jesse caught
the essence.
They know our boys.
And the lie is not to them!
I quickly say, "Cathy and I are doing
great." And we are! I will laugh with them
that I now have control of the t. v. flipper. I
will explain that a quiet evening alone with
your wife is a cherished moment. And it is!
I can eat at a nice restaurant and the bill is
not eighty-five dollars! Someone else has
to listen to Josh's questions....and Jesse no
longer comes into the bedroom about the
time I'm drifting off to sleep and asks
about the meaning of life.
Home alone--after twenty-five years of
revolving doors, late night snacks, girl
friend catastrophes, seventh inning losses,
knock-down-drag-outs over whose turn it
is to mow the lawn, mustard on the ceiling
and run-a-way dogs in the house--is
pretty darn nice!
And I do mean that. And I have enjoyed
many aspects of the less hectic pace and
the cessation of the life "make or break"
decisions that two sons force you to
agonize over on an hourly basis. I can
actually do what I want to do. Life is good.
But....
I miss the late night patter of little feet
coming down the hall. I would hear them
from our bedroom even before the door
handle turned. "Mommy, I can't sleep."
"Go back to bed, son. And close your
eyes. And try not to move. And see if sleep
doesn't slip upon you." Cathy had read that
book about not letting them get used to
sleeping with you after a certain age. Some
Freudian type had proposed it could have a
possible lingering effect on the physical
and neurological make-up of the individual
after they were grown.


They would come around to my side.
"Daddy, I can't sleep." And then they
would crawl up on top of me. I read "The
Ted Williams Story", "Touchdown Pass"
and books by Louis L'Amour.
I've literally seen a young Josh trembling
with excitement at the mere prospects of
opening a Christmas gift. Jess would study
the situation carefully, usually without a
word and I've wondered a million times
what possibly could be running through his
little mind.
It's strange. I've seen both hit homeruns
and score touchdowns. Win spelling bees
and garner science fair awards. Tote home
first place trophies and be named to all-star
teams. Make honor rolls and win
scholarships. But none of those things
cross my mind as I sit quietly and
peacefully and restfully and undisturbed in
front of the "all to my own" t. v. with
flipper in hand.
I think of two boys hiding behind the
couch, lurking! As soon as I opened the
door, returning from another long work
day, worn out and hungry.....they spring!
One would land on my back, the other on
the top of my head! If I didn't grab the
little one, he would topple to the floor....it
never crossed his mind that I wouldn't
catch him!
Before supper, we'd float down the
Cascade River with Uncle Leon and
Grover Cleveland Alexander. We climbed
a wind swept Pikes Peak. And wrestled
giant alligators. We'd swim the
Chattahoochee River. Run barefooted
across a bed of hot coals. See who could
hug the tightest. And be attacked by the
tickling man!
I would call time out and try to play the
"quiet game". "Just five minutes guys.
Let's see who can be the quietest for five
minutes" It was the only game they
wouldn't play!
. We ate supper in between riots.
Bassett, Lane, Broyhill and Tell City
couldn't make furniture that we couldn't
break!
As they grew older, the games moved
outside to the back yard. They usually
involved a ball of some kind. Listen, we
had hockey games and wrestling matches
break out between innings or at. half time!
And they never stopped. "Just one more

Chow mein, ice cream,

Cracker Barrel & state land


The owners of Jin Jin Restaurant
have signed a lease agreement and are
working on remodeling the old
Chandler's building.
Mike Jing says the new restaurant,
Super Grand Buffet, will open toward
the end of November and feature dine-
in Oriental meals with a full wait staff
as well as drive-through dining.
Jing, son of Jin Jin's owners, said his
family is in the process of securing
permits for the new restaurant.
And if you're looking for ia place for
dessert, here's some good news: The
state Department of Business and
Professional Regulation has approved
a plan review for Hershey's Ice Cream
in Quincy.
Pending permit approval, the ice
cream parlor will be located in
downtown Quincy at 519 W.
Crawford St.
And in other dining developments:
Cracker Barrel representatives have
expressed interest in opening a
restaurant in Midway. It's. still early in
the process, and certainly not a done
deal at this point, but Midway's
proximity to Interstate 10 is bound to
be appealing to the chain.

The state Department of
Environmental Protection's Forever
Florida program is considering several
pieces of Gadsden County property.
This program is an environmental
acquisition device that incorporates
restoration of damaged environmental
systems, water resource development
and supply, increased public access,
public lands management and
maintenance, and increased protection
of land by acquisition of conservation
easements.
Along with the Hosford Chapman's
Rhododendron Protection Zone, which
lies in both Gadsden and Liberty
counties, the program's Acquisition
and Restoration Council is considering
some St. Joe Timberland as well as the
portions of the Apalachicola River
than run through Liberty, Gadsden,
Calhoun and Jackson counties.
The DEP's Division of State Lands
has primary responsibility for the
Florida Forever land acquisition
program, the world's largest
. conservation land buying program.
Through it, the state has acquired
more than 1 million acres in the last 5
years.

PTA can help
Now, more than ever, parents need to be involved
in the education of children. The ,Florida Parent
Teacher Association (PTA) offers many services and
educational opportunities for parents and has
traditionally provided the vital link between home
and school.
In 2005-2006, there were 361,807 PTA members in
Florida's schools. Out of that number, Region 2
(Gadsden, Gilchrist, Leon, Wakulla, Jefferson,
Dixie, Franklin, .Lafayette, Liberty, Madison,
Suwannee and Taylor) contributed only 2,148
members. Region 1 to the west of us had 12,956
members and Region 3 to the east of us had 46,032
members. With our close proximity to the state
capital, Region 2 is in a prime location to make a
bigger difference for children and the Florida PTA is
hoping to. expand child advocacy opportunities to
more area schools in these counties. In the past few
years, county councils have formed in Gadsden and
Leon County and the local units are learning more
about PTA opportunities.
PTA is a member-based active association working
for children and youth at the local school, county,
state and national levels. PTA helps to keep parents
informed on all issues relating to children-their
education, health and wellbeing-and provides
cultural arts opportunities for all school age children.
In addition, PTA members lobby on behalf of
children and education by using position statements
adopted at the PTA's annual convention. As a PTA
member, you can make a difference for all children
by presenting ideas and promoting child advocacy in
the legislative process. As PTSA members, students
can participate in this process and understand that
they too, can make a difference.
At the Florida PTA Leadership Conference this
past summer, those in attendance heard Florida
Department of Education Commissioner John Winn
express his support for PTAs in local schools around
the state and watched as he enthusiastically renewed
his'PTA membership at East Gadsden High School.
Lt. Governor Toni Jennings recognized PTA's
contributions to education and acknowledged those
members from Leon County. Our Region, while
small, is in the spotlight. We are confident that a
strong, viable, well-informed and supported PTA in
local schools is in the best interest of students.
Florida PTA in conjunction with the Region 2
Representative and the Leon and Gadsden County
Councils are planning a Parent Involvement
Conference. Current PTA members, parents
interested in learning more about PTA, former PTA
leaders, school administrators, teachers and
community members are invited to attend. Over the
next few months, the area County Councils will
provide more information about this event and other
planned events. PTA encourages all parents, teachers
and students, care-givers and community members to
be a part of the PTA everychild.onevoice family. To
learn more about PTA, please visit
www.floridapta.org, call the Florida PTA 1 (800)

No need to

panic!

It's hurricane season. We all
know that. Starts every year the
first of June and doesn't end 'till
after Thanksgiving. I don't think
yellow fly season lasts that long.
And, honestly, I'm more terrified
of yellow flies than hurricanes.
Every year about this time some
pretty clever people start posting
amusing hurricane stories on the
internet. One ofthose follows. I
wish I knew the guy who wrote it
(he's a pretty funny fellow), but I
don't...

Any day now you're going to
turn on your TV and see a
weather person pointing to some
radar blob out in the Gulf of
Mexico and making 'two basic
meteorological points:
1. There is no need to panic.
2. We're all going to be killed.
Yes, hurricane season is an
exciting time to be in Florida. If
you're new to the area, you're
probably wondering
what you need to
do to prepare for :
the possibility th.uji t I
we'll get hit by the :i ; s
"big one". Based
on our experience.
we recommend
that you follow this simple three-
step hurricane preparedness plan:
1. Buy enough food and bottled
water to last your family for at
least three days.
2. Put these supplies in your
car.
3. Drive to Nebraska and
remain there until Thanksgiving.
Unfortunately, statistics show
that most people will not follow
this sensible plan. Most will
foolishly stay here in Florida.
Those that stay should pay
close attention to certain items.
We'll start with homeowner's
insurance.
If you own a home you must
have hurricane insurance.
Fortunately, this insurance is
cheap and easy to get, as long as
your home meets two basic
requirements:
1. It is reasonably well-built.
2. It is located in Nebraska.
Unfortunately, if your home is
located in Florida most insurance
companies would prefer not to
sell you hurricane insurance,
because they might be required to
pay YOU money, .and that is
certainly not why they got into
the insurance business in the first
place.
So, you will have to scrounge
around for an insurance
company, which will charge you
an annual premium roughly equal
to the replacement value of your
house. At any moment this .
company can drop you like used
dental floss.
Shutters: Yqur house should
have hurricane shutters on all the
windows, doors and if it's a
major hurricane the toilets.
There are several types of
shutters, each with their own
advantages and disadvantages.
Plywood: The advantage is that
because you make them yourself,
they're cheap. The disadvantage
is that, because you make them
yourself, they will fall off.
Sheet metal shutters: The
advantage of these is that they
work well once you get them all
up. The disadvantage is that once
you get them all up it will be
December.
Roll-Down shutters: The
advantages are that they're very
easy to use and will definitely
protect your house. The
disadvantage is that you will have
to sell your house to pay for
them.
Hurricane-Proof Windows:


They look like ordinary
windows, but they can withstand
hurricane winds! You can be sure
of this because the salesman says
so. He lives in Nebraska.

Young: recent accidents stress


need for driving education


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
The events this weekend that sent several stu-
dents to local hospitals and claimed the life of one,
has Sheriff Morris Young concerned. "We cannot
afford to allow what happened this weekend to
repeat itself," he said.
He said he has to concentrate on educating
young people about all of the dangers of driving.
"We're not going to concentrate on just drinking
and driving or seatbelts, we have to have a com-
prehensive effort," he said.
Young plans to meet with other law enforce-
ment agencies to look for a solution.
"Last year we took an awareness program to
East Gadsden and to Robert F. Munroe. I think the
students received it pretty well. We're going to
have to reinforce that message," Young said.
Young said he recalled two incidents last year
where teenagers died after being involved in an
automobile accident. He said the tragedy this
weekend may have been avoided if all of the pas-
sengers had been wearing seatbelts.


The Gadsden County Times August 24, 2006 7


"It's an educational process. When people get
into a vehicle, it ought to be second nature to fas-
ten their seatbelts," Young said.
The young lady (Tercina Jordan) who was the
driver of the automobile in the Midway accident,
according to Young, is distraught. "She went to
the hospital Monday night to see them and she
called after she left. She is having a very hard time
of it," he said.
Young said that not only do accidents affect the
families of the injured or killed, it affects a wide
range of people. He was informed that counselors
had been made available at East Gadsden on
Monday in case students needed them.
In the Midway community, the mood is
somber. "These kids were related to a lot of peo-
ple. I rode around with some of the family mem-
bers Satruday after the accident and talked with
them. They had just buried their grandfather earli-
er that day and one of the mothers was talking
about the sermon," Young said. The sermon, he
said, could have almost been prophetic in its tone.
The minister talked about teenagers and careless-
ness.


GCSO book bag give-away party
The Gadsden County Sheriff's Office with the support of Havana Middle School, Dr. V. Norris,
Principal, sponsored a back to school book bag giveaway block party on Saturday August 10, 2006 from
10am to 2pm at the Havana Middle School Gymnasium. Over two hundred elementary and middle
school kids and parents participated in activities provided. Face painting, basketball, food and music,
provided by Cadillac Joe, were a few of the activities provided for the kids. Gadsden County Sheriff's
Office Community Justice Program also provided fingerprinting and identification cards for the kids.
Over 200 book bags were given away to elementary and middle school students.
The book bags contained paper, pencils, pens and folders to help those who needed the assistance
with back to school items. Sheriff Young who also arrived at the party and interacted with the kids and
parents approved the funds for the event. Sheriff Young would like to send out a special thank you to
the Gadsden County School Board and staff, a special thanks to Dr. V. Norris, Cadillac Joe and staff,
Men Who Make A Difference, the staff at Havana'Middle School, volunteers from the Gadsden County
Sheriff's ,Office and the community volunteers who helped make this a success.

20 square miles of tax breaks!


Enterprise

Zone is

county's best

tax-saving

secret

by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

There is a very well kept
secret in Gadsden County. It's
about 20 square miles rather
scattered throughout the county
but it could mean big bucks to a
business owner. Gadsden
County received the designation
of an Enterprise Zone by the
state in 2004 and will keep it
until 2015.
"This means money for many
businesses in our county; I wish
more people would take advan-
tage of it," said Dr. Henry Grant.
Enterprise Zone coordinator.
The designation can help
businesses in several ways:
First, it allows for jobs tax
credit for the employer. The jobs
credit allows a monthly credit
against Florida Corporate or
Sales and Use Tax based on
wages paid to new employees
who are permanent, full time
(working at least 36 hours per
week), have been employed for
at least three months and are res-
idents of a rural county.
"There is no money exchang-
ing hands, they get credits under
this plan," said Grant.
This is how it works:
Company A is doing business in
the enterprise zofie and hires
three new full time permanent
employees. One of the new
employees lives in Gadsden
County and his salary is $2,000
per month. After the employee
has worked three months, the
employer is eligible to apply'fdr
a tax credit. The company's
sales tax is $4,000. Because the
company can receive a 30 per
cent of the employee's salary,
Company A will be eligible for a
$600 credit.
Company A could earn even
more credits if they employed
more people who live within the
enterprise zone. The tax credit is
allowed for up to 24 months.
Grant said that employers
receiving the credit say it is a
tremendous savings.
"Unfortunately not enough peo-
ple take advantage of the pro-
gram. I get calls from all over
the state and nation about the
program and people right here
say they don't know about it,"
Grant said.
Grant said employers can
also cash in on building materi-
als sales tax refund under anoth-
er feature of the Enterprise Zone
program. This allows a state
sales tax refund on building

materials purchased for new
construction or the renovation of
existing buildings and resi-
dences in the enterprise zone.
"Ninety-seven percent of the six
percent state sales tax is refund-
able," Grant said. The tax refund


is a one time only refund per
parcel of real estate.
Businesses can
also get a tax refund "This i
on equipment. He for ma:
said the plan allows in our
a sales tax refund on wish mr
eligible equipment
that costs $5,000 or would
more provided the advant:
equipment is used
exclusively in an ]
Enterprise Zone
business for three


years. Also, ninety-seven per-
cent of the six percent sales tax
is refundable. There is one
catch. "The filing date is critical
in this program. Forms must be
filed with the Department of
Revenue within six months after
the equipment is purchased or
the tax is due," Grant said.
Another program allows for
property tax credit or a corpo-
rate income tax credit.This cred-

it kicks in when a corporation
establishes five or more new
jobs when it builds, rebuilds, or
expands its business in the
Enterprise Zone. The tax credit
is based on the amount of real
and tangible property increase.
The credit equals 96 percent of

the increase.
Under this-
plan, the new
employees do
not have to
live in the
Enterprise
Zone, but they
must work in
the Enterprise
Zone, accord-
ing to Grant.
One of the


most underused incentives is the
property tax exemption for child
care facilities. "This is an excel-
lent program and no one in the
county has applied. I'm sure it
could help someone," Grant
said. The program allows real
estate used and owned as a
childcare facility in the
Enterprise Zone an exemption
for ad valorem property tax. The
property owner must also be the


owner of the child care business.
To be eligible the child care
provider must have owned and
operated the business since
January I of the year for which
the exemption is claimed and
must meet the definition of a
child care facility as describe in
Florida State Statutes.
Florida law states that a child
care facility includes any child
care center or child care
arrangement which provides
child care for more than five
children unrelated to the opera-
tor and which received a pay-
ment, fee, or grant for any of the
children receiving care, wherev-
er operated, and whether or not
operated for profit.
The last program offered is
called the community contribu-
tion tax credit. Businesses locat-
ed anywhere in Florida that
make donations to approved
community development proj-
ects may receive a tax credit
equal to 50 percent of the value
of the donation. "Businesses can
take the credit against Florida
corporate income tax, insurance
premium tax or as a refund
against sales tax," Grant said.

10 The Gadsden County Times August 24, 2006


Big Bend Hospice's Gadsden County team welcomes Carla Braveman to her new position as
president and CEO.


Braveman named Hospice CEO


Gadsden County Big Bend
Hospice team welcomed Big
Bend Hospice's new president
and CEO Carla Braveman at the
August all-staff meeting in
Tallahassee.
Board of Directors First Vice
Chairman Raymond Capelouto
introduced Carla Braveman.
"The search committee inter-
viewed and considered many
highly qualified candidates both
from around area and from
across the county to find that
one special person who could
best lead Big Bend Hospice, and
we found her," said Capelouto.
Braveman will take the helm
at Big Bend Hospice at the end
of August. She is moving to the
Big Bend area from
Massachusetts where she was
the executive director for the
Visiting Nurses Association and
the Hospice of Cooley
Dickinson Hospital.

more..... Daddy, Daddy,
Daddy....."
I remember years when I
though I might could "make it" if
I could just get five minutes
alone. By myself! No questions!
No inquisitive looks! No science
projects! No "How come you are
the only father in town not letting
his sons go?"
Hey, listen, I've got that quiet
now. And I'm enjoying it! I can
come through the front door
without being attacked. I don't
have to step over Lincoln Logs,
broken glass or Nintendo Play
Stations. I haven't had to glue the
leg back on a chair in years. I've
got grass growing in my back
yard.
Our house doesn't tremble with
noise, white-water rafters, wild
horses, wanderlust or excitement.
I've got my five minutes of
quiet....and then some.
And I like it. I'm making the
most of it. If you ask, "I'm doing
just fine."
But....

Hurricane Supplies: You will
need a mess of supplies. Do not
buy them now. Tradition requires
you wait until the last possible
minute so that you can get in
fights with strangers over the last
can of Spam.
You will need the following
supplies:
23 flashlights. At least $167
worth of batteries that, when the
power goes out, turn out to be the
wrong size for the flashlights.
Bleach. No, I don't know what
the bleach is for. NOBODY
knows what the bleach is for, but
it's a tradition. Get some!
A big knife that you can strap
to your leg. This will be useless
in a hurricane, but it looks cool!
A large quantity of raw
chicken. This is used to placate
the alligators. Ask anybody who
went through Andrew...after the
hurricane, there WILL be
alligators.
$35,000 worth of diamonds or
cash, so that after the hurricane
passes, you can buy a generator
from a man with no discernible
teeth.
Of course, these are just basic
precautions. As the hurricane
draws near, it is vitally important
that you keep abreast of the
situation by turning on your
television and watching TV
reporters in rain slickers stand
right next to the ocean and tell
you over and over how vitally
important it is for everybody to
stay away from the ocean.
Good luck and remember: It's
great living in paradise! Those of
you who aren't here yet...you
should come. Before
Thanksgiving.


She is a Registered Nurse
and holds a bachelor's of sci-
ence in nursing and a master's
of educational administration. In
addition to 28 years of nursing,
Braveman has held administra-
tive and management positions
for the past 23 years.
She is active in the Hospice
Association of America, having
served as an officer and current
serves on the association's
board. Braveman has had
numerous articles published in
national hospice and healthcare
journals.
Gadsden and Liberty county
team members were on hand to
welcome the new Big Bend
Hospice President and CEO.
"The fact that she has strong
experience in delivering servic-
es in a rural health care setting
will be a wonderful benefit for
our area. That coupled with her
passion for hospice care and her
commitment to help lead us to
new levels of delivering excel-
lent hospice care was impres-
sive," said team manager Donna
Gatch, R.N.
Last year Big Bend Hospice
served 1,531 patients providing
109,624 total days of patient
care and support in the eight-
county Big Bend region. Big
Bend Hospice care is delivered
by more than 300 staff, support-
ed by more than 300 volunteers
to patients in their homes and at
the Hospice House.
In addition, 1,238 families
received bereavement support
and this year, Big Bend Hospice
has started early loss support for
those who experienced loss dur-
ing pregnancy or lost a new-
born, and a suicide support
group for anyone coping with
this difficult loss.
Licensed in 1983, Big Bend
Hospice is the local private non-
profit organization that provides
compassionate care to individu-


als with limited life expectancy
and their families offering care
teams consisting of an experi-
enced RN, a family counselor, a
home health aide, board certi-
fied music therapist, a chaplain
and trained volunteers to every
patient.


Quincy

library plans

book club
The Bill McGill Public
Library will be starting a book
discussion group in the very
near future.
The Havana Library has a
very successful book club and it
is felt that the time has come for
a book club (book discussion
group) to be organized in
Quincy. The library is collecting
names of potential members for
the book club.
It is expected that there may
be enough response to have two
book club meetings per month.
One club would meet once a
month in the evening and anoth-
er might meet once a month dur-
ing the day. The club will dis-
cuss a different book every
month. It is expected, that the
two groups may be di.'.i ,.
totally different books alhl,.- j;
it is also possible that they might
be discussing the same books.
If you would like to partici-
pate or would like further infor-
mation, please contact the Bill
McGill Library circulation desk
at 627-7106.
As soon as a sufficient num-
ber of names have been collect-
ed, the library will invite every-
one to participate in an organi-
zational meeting to determine
time and dates for the meetings,
as well as a list of potential
books.

Budget

Continued from Page 1

Community Redevelopment
Agency (CRA). "There are some
questions about how much we
actually owe the CRA," Bogan
answered.
He admitted, and agreed with
the forensic auditors, that sloppy
bookkeeping needed to be
straightened out. "There were
some inventory items related to
utilities the were incorrect. Mr.
Rohan Berry, (the new utilities
director) is looking into that right
now," he said. Due to incorrect
information supplied in the past
from that department, the
inventories might reveal a
different story.
He said that he is also looking
to raise revenues for the city.
Commissioner Finley Cook said
he hoped that Bogan wasn't
attempting to raise revenues just
to balance the budget. "I want to
make sure that you feel
comfortable with this budget as it
is," Cook told Bogan.
"I am," answered Bogan.
"We have Magnolia Forest
coming on line next summer, we
have Arbor Crest coming. They
should bring in revenues as well.
We've been (in the past) booking
revenues (putting them on the
books) and not collecting. We're
not doing that anymore," he said.
With all of the departments
willing to take voluntary cuts,
Cook said he would be willing to
give up part of his salary too. But
he got no takers on that
suggestion.
Bogan said the county and city
were in negotiations on fire
service. Talks, he said, are going
well and the county and city are
looking into the possibility of
placing manned fire stations on
the eastern and western ends of
the city limits for quicker access.
The county would pay for them.
What has been a sore point for
years reared its head again at the
end of the meeting the city's
recreation department where
close to 80 percent of those who
participate are not citizens of the
City of Quincy. "Our citizens are
bearing the burden. It's like a free
ride except for the fees they pay,"
said Cook. Bogan said that in
talks with other city managers in
the county, many felt the
participation came from the
unincorporated area of the county
and not municipalities.
"I will tell you that that isn't
true. Last year a whole Pee-Wee
team came over from the City of
Havana and got complete
uniforms. And that's just
children. We haven't surveyed
the adults who use our facilities,"
Bogan said.
Commissioners agreed that they
didn't want to turn any kids
away, but at the same time, the
city has do to do something.
"Maybe if they would just pay
some sort of stipend to help us
out here," Cook said.
"I've already had these
discussions with staff, but I think
other cities ought to kick in. too.
We will track the adults and kids
this year," Bogan said.

cousins, except for family friend
Monica Steele, were headed to
the store in Midway.
Byrd's grandfather, David
Parker, Jr. was buried Saturday
morning.
County Commissioner Eugene
Lamb, whose uncle was the
grandfather of several of the
children in the accident called it a


"blow" to the community. "I

None of the girls wore seatbelts.
The investigation is continuing.
Funeral services for Byrd will be
held Saturday at 2 p.m. in the
gymnasium at East Gadsden
High School. Williams Funeral
Home is in charge of services.
An early morning accident
Sunday sent three Robert F.
Munroe students to the hospital
following a car accident on Old
Federal Road in rural Gadsden
County, according to Major
Tommy Haire, of the Gadsen
County Sheriff's Office.
Haire said it was his
understanding that three Munroe
students were involved in the
accident.
While Haire said the Florida
Highway Patrol handled the
accident, no report was available
as of press time. The local office
informed the Gadsden County
Times that officers have up to ten
days to file reports and no report
had been filed on the Sunday
morning accident.

John Paul II defeated Munroe 18-0 in two quarters of football
jamboree play last Friday at Tallahassee's Florida High Field.
"I didn't feel like we did a very good job of containment."
Munroe coach Adam Reep said. "And we also have a lot of work to
do on offense."
Jason Cook with 6 tackles led the Munroe effort.

NFC NORTH
The old Black,and Blue divi-
sion was kind of strange last
year. Chicago won it without a
steady quarterback. Minnesota
was second after Culpepper got
hurt. Green Bay had an unusual
losing season with Brett Favre
not playing well. Detroit was
well, again Detroit. Nothing
will change this year for the
Lions. They still won't have a
winning year. Look for Green
Bay to bounce back and Favre to
have a great year in what may be
his last one. His Packers will be
second to Minnesota and Brad
Johnson in the division while no
offense will cause Chicago to
drop to third.

Continued from Page 12
possession when he got away
on a quarterback sneak on a
fourth and one call and raced 38
yards for a touchdown. Brown's
two point pass to Marterricus
Thomas upped it to 14-0 still in
the first quarter.
West Gadsden then got their
only points in the game when
Ron Burns scored a touchdown
from 1 yard out and Jose
Calderon kick the p.a.t. late in
the first quarter.
It was pretty much all
Jaguar's after that. Brown tossed
a 24 yard scoring pass to Pat
Smith and Demetric Cooper
kick an extra point mid-way the
second quarter making it 21-7.
Brown again got away on a
quarterback sneak, this time on
a 62 yard scoring jaunt, later in
quarter 2 and it was 27-7 at the
half.
The second half of the game
could have been called flag foot-
ball as it seemed like one penal-
ty marker after another flew.
Strangely, East Gadsden ran
only one offensive play in the
third quarter, it was another
touchdown pass this one from


Brown to Smith for 18 yards
after a fumbled Panther punt
snap was recovered by the
Jaguars.
East Gadsden closed the
scoring in quarter four when
Smith caught another t.d. pass,
this one from Jamaica Moore
from 36 yards out.
Besides his offense work
Brown racked up 2 sacks on
defense as he and Ron Gordon
led the way defensively for the
Jaguars.
"I thought we played pretty
solid on defense." Anderson
said. "But we also played slop-
py at times on both offense and
defense and we have to work on
those penalties."
"I was disappointed in our
play." Panther coach Robert
Jackson said. "I can't take any-
thing away from East Gadsden,
they were well prepared for us,
but I know we can play better."
East Gadsden opens their
regular season at home Friday
night in a 7:30 pm game against
Chiles. "They have a pair of
good receivers." Anderson said.
"And they are a 4-A school." He
continued. "We'll see it we
improved on some things and
can build off last week's win."

coached by Corky Rodgers the
states winningest high school
coach. "If we don't play better
it may be like hopping out of the

Correction
Editor's note: In last week's
story about the upcoming East
Gadsden-West Gadsden football
game it was mistakenly reported
that Carlos McMillian made the
game saving tackle in West
Gadsden's Spring Football
Classic win over East Gadsden.
Ronnie Jackson made that
tackle. I was at the game and
knew Jackson made the tackle
and I would have bet that that's
what I wrote in the story. I made
a mistake and can only apolo-
gize for the error.

I am Willie Scott, I am a senior citizen

and live in Gadsden County. The Senior

Citizens of our county do not need the

mismanagement that we experienced

under the direction of Jeanne Dora

Gunn. Under Mrs. Gunn's tenure as

chairman of the board of directors

many times the seniors were not

allowed the usage of the senior citizens

building and vans. We had a mess and

we don't want a mess on our county

commission. In 2004 Commissioner

Brenda Holt got our $100,000 that was

taken from the senior citizens.

Commissioner Holt spoke to the news

media in support of our senior citizens. I

am also asking all registered voters in

District 4 to support our senior citizens

by voting for Commissioner Brenda Holt

for County Commissioner in District 4.



Keep the faith and keep hope.

Leave Our Parents Alone!!!!!


I give the utmost thanks to the County Commission for giving the citizen's of Gadsden County an open invitation to attend
the Visioning-Zoning Meeting. These meetings were held in every city in the County. Never before in the history of Gadsden
County were the citizens giving the opportunity to express themselves and tell how they want the county to be or not to be
developed. Did you know depending on how your property is zoned it takes three to five acres of land to build or place a
mobile home on it? With the price of land today in the rural areas starting in the neighborhood of $10,000 and higher per acre,
how in God's name can a young person in Gadsden County ever stand on his or her own feet? If a system does not provide
traction for its citizen's it's not a wholesome system at all and deserves to be re-evaluated. I thank Commissioner Holt/ Dixon/
Price for setting their sights on this problem that has plagued the citizens of this County long enough. That's why
Commissioner Holt has become a target for those that do not want change. Her opponent Jeanne Dora Gunn has wrapped her-
self around folk that want to dictate to our parents what they can or cannot do with their own land. Beloved some of these
folks are not natives of this county and some moved away and returned again. Those same folks are now attempting to dictate
to our parents what they can and can't do with the property that they sweated to purchase. I wonder did these folks get up
every morning and work in the fields from sun up to sun down with our parents. Were they exposed to the harmful dangerous
pesticides DDT and others that our parents encountered while working in the fields, if anyone did not, they you need to Mind
Your Own Business! It's a sinful shame that our children are being zoned out of the county and must seek shelter elsewhere.
To put it plainly, they are being pushed out. How can someone profess they want to represent you, lock elbows with folks that
have this type of mindset. People have the tendency to rally around candidates whether White/Black/Hispanic/etc, that have
their agenda at heart, and place their sights on those that disagree. After 1992 if anyone in Gadsden County that has an acre of
land with more than one home on it and if a natural disaster, fire included, were to hit Gadsden County, and destroy those
homes under the present zoning law only one may be built back. Our Family Exemption allows families to put our family
members on our family land. Mrs. Jeanne Dora Gunn is on the board of Planning and Zoning, and last week Mrs. Jeanne
Dora Gunn voted to kill our Family Exemption. Afflicting suffering upon the very people that made Gadsden County
what it is today is wrong Mrs. Jeanne Dora Gunn. This is not the kind of person we need on our county commission. What
does the rest of the people do who's home where destroyed on that acre of land after a disaster strikes? Doesn't Hurricane
Katrina come to mind when you saw those folks walking out of New Orleans with their belonging in their hands? I like to
inform you under the present zoning law; Gadsden County is a Katrina waiting to happen. This is another vital issue that sep-
arated Commissioner Holt from her opponent: Commissioner Holt understands that this isn't fair to the people of Gadsden
County. Vote Commissioner Brenda Holt and lets Keep Hope Alive. Vote early Monday through Saturday, 8:30 to 4:30 in
the Supervisor's Office in Quincy and City Hall in Chattahoochee.

We sell all of our cars at
a discount so you don't
need a down payment!
Interest Rates
as low as 4.95%


We Buy Cars, Trucks SUVs!


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
by or call.

Jo K. Smith
Josephine "Jo" Koen Smith,
84, died August 13, 2006 at
Westminster Oaks in
Tallahassee. Funeral services
were held at First Presbyterian
Church, Quincy with James H.
Monroe, officiating. Internment
was at Hillcrest Cemetery.
Jo K. Smith was born in
Russellville, Arkansas on
January 2nd, 1922. She and her
sister Virginia Koen Allured
who predeceased her were con-
stant companions. Jo was taller
and perceived as older than
Virginia. She got tired of being
the "older" sister and eventually
skipped the second grade so the
two graduated from Russellville
High School in 1938.
After completing an AA
degree in business administra-
tion from Arkansas Tech
University in 1940, she joined
the U.S.
Navy and
served for r
two years -


as a
WAVE.
While sta-
tioned in
Key West,
FL, she

Lamar
Smith who became the love of
her life. They married in 1946
and moved to Lamar's home-
town, Quincy, FL.
Jo is survived by her sister
Augusta Koen Boatwright;
brothers Hillman Koen and Ross
Koen; nieces Trice Hirr, Mary


Kay Cooksey, Barbara Floersch,
and Cecilia Holmes and great-
nephew, Lamar Thomas.
Her indomitable spirit and
can do attitude caused her to be
dubbed "General Jo" by the
many friends who mourn her
passing. Employed as office
manager at Frosty Morn in
Quincy from 1948 until the
company's demise in 1972, she
later was named comptroller of
the Gadsden County Hospital
where she served for many
years.
Lamar died when he was 58
but Jo soldiered on. She was a
master gardener before the state
coined the term and her yard
was truly a wonder. She loved
opera and managed to make it
back to Arkansas to be with her
siblings most years.
She was a faithful servant of
her church, First Presbyterian in
Quincy where she held most
every leadership position.
When serving as Moderator of
the Presbyterian Women at the
church, she scoured the group's
membership rolls and personally
called each woman who had
ceased to be active. Her mes-
sage was simple and clear: be
active or have your name erased
from the roll. The membership
increased significantly.
Jo was active in the Pilot
Club, the Quincy Garden Club,
and served on the board of Main
Street Quincy in the early '90's.
During the Main Street tenure,
she co-chaired Quincyfest.
Her sister Augusta relates
that Jo referred to the Gadsden
Arts Center as her "baby" and
she devoted much of her time
and talent to the development of
that organization. While still in
its formative years, Jo served as
treasurer. Then board president,
Zoe Golloway remembers
watching her painstakingly and
impeccably overseeing the cen-
ter's finances. She states "Jo
was indeed a detail person but
was also able to dream the big
dreams that led to the creation of
the facility. She always knew
whom to call to help get things
done and was absolutely tire-
less."
When Mark Bates donated
his wonderful historic building
to the arts center, her role
expanded, as she became the
head of the Long Range
Planning Committee. It was
with Jo's direction that the mis-
sion and vision of the organiza-
tion were established. She kept
the committee on track, pro-
duced the plan that guided the
facility planning and continues
to steer the center today.
Always competent and wish-
ing to live life on her terms, she
moved to Westminster Oaks in
Tallahassee several years ago.
Though losing her eyesight and
dealing with the narrowing of
her world, she remained
involved in activities for as long
as possible. Her last visit to the
Gadsden Arts Center was in
2003 when through her sugges-
tion, the activities director
brought a group of residents on
a tour. Though she was nearly
blind by that time, she still asked
her insightful questions about
the works on the walls.
An active board member and
tireless volunteer for the arts
center, Jo was also an informal
docent for years. She studied
exhibits, talked to artists,
formed her own conclusions,
and usually could assist visitors
by giving them more informa-
tion on why and how and what
they were looking at.
She was an amazing woman,
a splendid role model, and a gra-
cious lady. Tall, lean, impecca-
bly dressed, she was a most lov-
ing and caring force who will be
sorely missed.

,Allr About Th e Tieh one
In today's world, no matter where you go, you are most likely to find a telephone. In America, and other parts .t tIhe world, almost any
person you ask would tell you that they have a phone in their home, at work, and probably even a mobile cell phone to take with them on the
go. The telephone is an amazing invention that has proved to stand the test of time. Without the telephone, modern communication as we
know it today would not be possible.
S1) The telephone was an invention that had many people developing it at the same time, much like the automobile. Most people give the credit
to Alexander Graham Bell for the invention of the telephone in 1867. Itwas after Bell, that the very well known phone company, Bellsouth, gets
its name. It is said, that the very first words that were spoken into the first telephone were from Alexander to his assistant, stating: "Mr. Watson,
come here, I want to see you." From that day on the world would no longer be the same. Little did Mr. Bell know that in just over 120 years, we would have the World
Wide Web, also known as the internet. Without the development of the telephone, this would have never been possible.
The telephone works by changing the acoustic vibrations of someone's voice into electrical pulses. This is done by placing a thin piece of metal in the base of the
telephone where the caller speaks into. An electrode is located underneath the metal film, and when spoken into bends it slightly, pushing gently on the electrode, and
creating an electrical impulse. This impulse is an electrical copy of the acoustic vibrations, or words, that have been spoken. Since the vibrations have been transformed
into electrical pulses, they can then be sent through a wire to the other end of the connection, or other telephone. When they reach the other telephone, the process is
reversed and the words are formed back into acoustic vibrations so that they can be heard by the other caller. Today, phones are much more sophisticated than that, but
the same simple principal applies. Cellular phones, a modern marvel, do not function in the same manner. Instead they use signal towers, and satellites to operate, as a
radio does. The internet sends information through electrical pulses, similar to the telephone, hence first without the invention of the telephone, the internet would not be


what it is today!

B8 The Gadsden County Times August 24, 2006


Century farm


Continued from Page Bl


It was and is a working
farm. Poucher's great-grand-
father raised cotton, rice,
tobacco, cows and hogs on it;
his son grew sugar cane and
tobacco. Poucher's father,
Thomas Layton, grew tobac-
co and corn, and her husband
raises and shows Pinzgauer


cattle as well as Black Angus.
Poucher uses one of the
farmhouse's three bedrooms
as an office from which she
runs her bookkeeping service;
her daughter, Amber Rabon,
works with her.
She was an only child, and
spent a fair amount of time
with grown-ups; that's one
reason she enjoyed tobacco
harvest season.
"My father used mostly a
crew of school kids from


Greensboro and Liberty
County that was one of the
biggest social activities I
had," she said. "I did have
kids come over after school.
My mom was never sure how
many would get off the bus
with me."
Originally, the farm had a
stockade to house mules,
cows and equipment; a cotton
house, a smokehouse, a
chickenhouse, and a tobacco
barn built from lumber grown


on the property. Poucher's
parents added a second barn
in 1961, also built with lum-
ber grown on the property.
It was never Poucher's
ultimate plan to return to the
family homeplace to live; all
the same, she knew it was an
option and enjoyed that secu-
rity. She and her husband
built a home several years
ago that's just down the road
from the farm.
"I knew the homeplace


would always remain in the
family," she said. "I remem-
ber always having a feeling of
knowing where home was."

This series will lift your spirits as we spotlight those that are stepping
outside their jobs to make this a better community.

*Hometown Heroes...another reason
more people are reading The
Gadsden County Times more often!

If you know someone you'd call
a Hometown Hero for his/her efforts
-outside the job to make this a better
community, please let us know.

Enhancing Education Through Technology
lap op initiative fai Gadsdern Count.'s eighth Grade Students. and Teacher


Gadsden's Instructional Media and Technology Department invites parents and
community leaders to join us in a Kick-Off Celebration designed to introduce students
to their new iBook laptops. The time has arrived; the anticipation will soon come to
an end when students are handed their very own laptops. Each participating school
will host its own Kick-Off celebration that will begin with a general assembly to
inform students about this exciting journey upon which they are embarking.
Immediately following the assembly, small group sessions will be conducted to orient
students to their laptops. We encourage all stakeholders to attend this memorable
experience in the history of Gadsden's Public School System as we produce our first
class of 21st Century Scholars. For additional information, please contact
Dr. Sonja Bridges, Project Director or Mia Thomas, at (850) 627-9651. Please see
dates and times below for each participating school.
