schools ..ii.....

honored

for their

progress

by Leslie Roberts
Times News Editor
Three Gadsden County schools
were among the top schools in
Florida recognized by the state
Department of Education for
making progress in student
achievement.
Education Commissioner John
L. Winn announced last week
that Stewart Street Elementary,
Crossroad Academy and James
A. Shanks Middle School were
among the Florida schools being
recognized for having the highest
increase in total points for school
grades when compared to last
year.
"Honoring schools with the
greatest gains, in student
achievement highlights the
extraordinary progress made with
many of Florida's most
struggling students," Winn said.
The top 100 elementary
schools, 75 middle schools, 50
high schools and 50 combination
schools were recognized for
making the most year-to-year
progress in school grade points.
The recognition is for schools
that had the highest increase in
the total points a school received
on the school grading criteria for
the 2005-2006 school year
compared to the previous year.
Gadsden County Schools
Superintendent Reginald James
said while three of the county's
15 schools were recognized, all
have made strides in improving
academic performance.
"I'm proud of all our schools,"
he said. "When you consider the

Saying that he is "cautiously optimistic",
County Attorney Thornton Williams told
the Board of County Commissioners that


the urgent-care unit should be ready on or
about September 13.
"We've really -worked hard to get all of
the agreements signed and we should soon
have health care back in Gadsden County,"
Williams said. The issues were
complicated, and as many as three
attorneys from his firm had been
negotiating different aspects of the
transferring the license and other legal
issues.
County manager Marlon Brown also had


good news. "We have an agreement with
Tallahassee Memorial Hospital (to operate
the urgent care unit) in concept. Once we
have access to the urgent care unit, TMH
will need about 30 days," Brown said.
He said a consultant has been hired and
will do the hiring on behalf of the Board of
County Commissioner along with TMH
administrators. The administration of the
urgent care unit will he handled by TMH.
Brown, said TMH will be conducting
interviews and backgrounds checks,

Authorities have

suspect in threat

by Leslie Roberts
Times News Editor
Authorities have a suspect in a bomb threat
Monday that disrupted the schedules of two
schools, 1,000 children and parents and
.countless law enforcement officers.
"Authorities have the number of the person
who called," said Gadsden County Schools
Superintendent Reginald James. "That's a
felony you can't do that."
Gadsden County School District
Spokeswoman Shaia James said Tuesday
authorities "feel fairly confident they know
who it is."
Monday, the suspect called Carter-
Parramore Academy and Shanks Middle


School and claimed a bomb had been planted
on school grounds. The calls came in around
10:30 a.m. Officials believed early on that it
was a prank, but took precautionary measures
until they knew for certain.
School district officials and local law
enforcement including the Quincy Police
Department, the Gadsden County Sheriff's
Office and local Emergency Management
coordinators responded quickly, evacuating
children to football fields adjacent to the
schools and calling in a Leon County K9 unit,
which brought a bomb-sniffing dog to both
scenes.
Police sealed off streets in front of the
schools and while school district officials
coordinated getting buses to the schools,
students sat outside in 95-degree weather.
"I was told it would take two hours to sweep
the school. We couldn't leave the children in
the sun. We couldn't leave the children in the
school it was too dangerous," James said.


Students at both campuses had either
on a bus or been picked up by
members by around noon. Shanks Pi

Lamb blasts county salaries in budget


Says those at the top

get too much pay

by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
County Commissioner Eugene Lamb is
dissatisfied with the county's proposed
budget and he's not sure he will vote for it
when the time comes.
He said his main objection to the budget is
proposed salary increases by county manager
Marlon Brown.
It was during the second county budget
workshop Monday afternoon that Brown
proposed giving all Board of County
Commission employees a $2,600 raise
annually and to give department heads a raise
of $5,200.
"The public needs to know what these
people are making already. I cannot sit back
and see our hard working people who pay
taxes in this county .and who work hard and
go home at the end of the day sweaty and
dirty. Then for us to turn around and pay
these Tallahassee people above $50,000 a
year is crazy. All we're doing is taking care of
Tallahassee folks and they don't care enough
about us to move here. Some of them are even
driving the cars that Gadsden County
taxpayers are paying for back and forth to
home in Leon County," he said, clearly upset
after the meeting.
Lamb asked Brown what was the
justification for the raise for department


heads. "It was my decision. Most of them
wear many hats and are asked to do a number
of things," Brown said.
Under the new pay table, Brown would
make his own salary above $90,000 annually.
"That would make his salary over $100,000 a
year becasue he has a brand new SUV to
drive home every day," Lamb said.
Lamb supplied a list of salaries for
department heads that he said were out of
line. "I don't know how they can justify the
salaries they're getting and now they want
raises, some of them haven't even been in the
county six months yet," he said.
"God only knows what the county attorney
(Thornton Williams) and his firm makes. I
know they have done a lot of work on the
hospital and that was needed, but he keeps
bringing more and more people from his firm
over here," he said.
Lamb supplied a list of salaries for
department heads that he said he felt some
were not justified for a county the size of
Gadsden. The one exception was Brian
Beasely, EMS director. "He's about the only
one who is worth what he's getting," he said.
Here are the current salaries for department
heads:
*Asst. County Manager, Arthur Lawson:
$76,410.10
*Davin Suggs, Budget Director: $60,000.20
*Farnita Saunders, Community
Development Director: $62,000

856.04
*Charles Chambers, Director of Reci
$42,025.10
*Juvenile Alternative Coordinator: $4
*Jon Brown, Public Information D
$50,000
Commission Chairman Ed Dixon s
salaries are justified in that the amo
work that these individuals have per
since joining the county's staff is jus
by the end product.
"You cannot hire a Bill McCoi
walking down the street," he said.
Davin Suggs, budget director, explain
"percentage-wise" the $2,600 dollar ra
actually a better deal for lowe
employees. "They are actually getting
10 to 11 percent raise," he said.
"You can add numbers up and twist t
you want, but it still doesn't add up,'
told Suggs.
Commissioner Brenda Holt said she
prefer all employees get an across the
raise of $2,600. However, she chang
mind when Dixon explained that,

'Cool'!



The word describes Stirling Lake's action...

and his reaction...to winning a national

award for heroism using cellular phone


He's the Greensboro youth who saved

his buddy's life after a snake bite


by Leslie Roberts
Times News Editor
Had it not been for his cell
.phone and his cousin's quick
;thinking, Alex Clark might not
,-be alive today.
But after being bitten twice
'by a 6-foot, Eastern diamond-
,back rattlesnake while tromping
.through the woods behind the
,home of his cousin, Stirling
,Lake, Alex needed immediate
medical attention.
For his bravery and calmness
in the face of catastrophe, The
;Wireless Foundation, a non-
Lprofit organization in
-Washington, D.C. that oversees
,.philanthropic programs that use
-wireless technology to help
communities across the country,
:recently gave Stirling a VITA
(Latin for "life") Good
-Samaritan Award.
,. He reacted "really, very
calmly," said his mother, Dawn
-Lake. "He doesn't talk about
any of this, ever. He's not a
:boastful person. But it was also
,a horrible experience, so he
Doesn't dwell on it."
: It was July 13, 2005 when
-the two boys were exploring the
-woods behind the Lakes' house.
rWhen Alex got bitten, Lake
used the phone to try to reach
his father. No luck. He hung up
and dialed 911, then dragged his
cousin onto a Gator (a rural util-
ity vehicle) and drove him up to
the house, where they waited for
a helicopter to airlift him to a
Tallahassee hospital.
Stirling, who is on the A/B
honor roll at the Liberty County
high school he goes to, said he
took away an important lesson
from that day.
"I just felt like I gained self-
knowledge that I wouldn't
crumble in a tough situation,"
he said. "I had never really been
put to the test."
In addition to the VITA
award, Stirling also got a Razor
phone from Alltel and an auto-
graphed football from Steve
Largent, founder of Celldlar
Telecommunication and
Internet Association, The
Wireless Foundation's parent
company. He also happens to be
a former receiver for the Seattle
Seahawks who was inducted
into the Pro Football Hall of
Fame in 1995.
What does Stirling, now 13,
think about the honors?
"When my mom told me," he
said, "I said, 'Cool.'"

experience. To win the award,
TCC's application received a score
of 99.33 points from the federal
review panel out of a possible 100
points.
Congressman Allen Boyd, (D-
North Florida), is a long-time
proponent of the grant.
"I am proud to support the Talent
Search Program. It will give
Gadsden
County students the tools they
need to go beyond a high school
education and prepare them for
lifelong success," Boyd said in a
press release. "The partnership
between 'TCC and Gadsden
County will open up a door of
opportunities for our young people
who will benefit greatly from the
additional support that the Talent
Search Program will provide."
The program will track 600
students in grades 6-12 annually
and will provide the following
services: Academic advice and
help in high school and college
course selection; assistance in
completing college admissions and
financial aid applications;
assistance in preparing for college
entrance examinations; personal
and career counseling; tutorial
services; exposure to cultural and
academic activities not available to
disadvantaged youth; workshops
and counseling for families of
students and mentoring programs
for teachers, counselors, faculty,
and students.
"This new program will have a
strong, positive impact on the
education of 600 Gadsden County
students annually by helping them
complete high school and enroll in
postsecondary education
programs," TCC president Dr.
Law said.
The program will start at the
beginning of the 2006-2007
school year.

Piggly Wiggly opens Wednesday

Times Editor

Everything was spanking
brand new. The aisles gleamed,
the produced looked as if it had
been polished and everything was
ready for the first day of business
Wednesday at Gadsden County's


newest grocery store. "Our cus-
tomers are getting the best in
Gadsden County. We have more
than 200 years of grocery store
experience with our employees,"
Moore said.
The store will employ 105 full-,
time and part-time employees.
Hours are 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. seven


days a week. The full line grocery
store will boast.a barbecue restau-
rant, deli, bakery, soft serve ice
cream and more. There's also a
section with just one dollar items.
Moore said in the next two or
three weeks they hope to have a
pick up service for senior citizens.
"That's something that no one


else offers. We want to make it
convenient for them to shop on
Wednesday and Saturdays," he
said.
McDaniel said he was proud
of the store that has taken a long
time coming. "We had several set-
backs from the weather and just
getting things to come together,
but we did it and we're looking
forward to servicing the people of
Gadsden County and beyond,"
McDaniel said.
Even the youngest smallest
fans turned out the see the store
and its offerings. Shaun Frison, 6,
tapped Moore on the leg and
whispered in ear, "I'm proud of
the store, it's very nice."
County Commissioner
Chairman Ed Dixon, who was
instrumental in helping the store
get funding, said the store is a per-
fect example of how government

Havana Town Council members voted Tuesday
to use $135,000 in grant funds to hire a consultant to
study the potential impact of growth on the munici-
p.lii, 's water and sewer systems and to approve a
lequ e-r fronk a representative of Coastal Forest
Resources Company to begin the process o4 annex-
ing 400 undeveloped acres into the city.
Michael Murphy of Hatch Mott MacDonald
Engineering Firm told council members the installa-
tion of a gravity sewer system in Hampton Heights
and Pine Park subdivisions, which would include
pumping stations, easements and a preliminary
design on a wastewater collection system, is expen-
sive enough to warrant spending money on a survey
to see how much it would cost.
"Three hundred homes is going to be a fairly sig-
nificant impact on your wastewater collection," he
said. "The sprayfield I don't think you can add
more water to the existing site. We're probably
looking at additional sites for a sprayfield."
The two subdivisions are located in the county.
Residents of the subdivisions have asked Havana,
which is the closest sewer provider, to help improve
the existing sewer system. The Legislature designat-
ed $135,000 to be used to survey the neighborhoods
and assess their needs and the cost of providing
them. City Manager Susan Freiden said community
block development grants are only a drop in the
bucket when it comes to the cost of installing sewer
and water collection systems, and that Havana will
need help from the county to do it.
"It's going to cost millions to sewer these subdi-
visions," she said. "The county needs to work with
us."
In other action, council members gave prelimi-
nary approval to a request from John Higgins of
Coastal Forest Resources Company in Thomasville
to annex 400 undeveloped acres into the city. The
two parcels, 350 acres north of town and 50 acres at
the northwest corner of city limits, are at the edge of
city limits.
"We've always thought at Coastal these two
parcels would be good parcels to bring into city lim-
its," Higgins said. "We don't have plans for them at
this time."


Council members also discussed the proposed
half-cent sales tax, which will be on the November
ballot. The tax is being proposed as a way to fund
healthcare for the uninsured and underinsured,.
"Is it written in stone that the half-cent tax money
can go nowhere else (but toward indigent ihcalth-
care)?" council member Olive Collins said.

Gadsden County received
another grant Tuesday from the
Florida Recreation
Development Assistance Grant
Program (FRDAP) through the
Florida Department of
Environmental Protection
(DEP) to aid with recreation in
rural areas and in greenspaces.
The funds, $181,500 will be
used to upgrade Sawdust
Community Park.
On hand to present the award
at Tuesday night's regular meet-
ing was Sen. Al Lawson. "I am
happy to be here with you, I
serve on the committee that
awards the FRDAP grants. I
congratulate the people who got
the information in on time. I
need not tell you that these
grants are highly competitive,"
he said.
Rep. Curtis Richardson said
Gadsden County has gotten as
many, if not more, of the
FRDAP grants as any county in
the state. "I would like to com-
mend Nancy Gee and those who
did the hard work to get these
grants," he said.
Lawson said he had the
pleasure several weeks ago of
presenting the City of Gretna
with a FRDAP grant of
$400,000. "I would like to
encourage you all to pull togeth-
er a community group to keep
the facilities as long as possible,"
he said. The park must be com-
pleted by April 2009.
t On another bright note, Virgil
Lovett a fourth grader at Robert
F. Munroe Elementary, received
a plaque as Gadsden County's
first place winner of the "One
World, Many Neighbors" Fair
Housing poster contest. The
contest was sponsored statewide


Robert F. Munroe fourth
grader Virgil Lovett is pre-
sented a plaque by
Community Development
Director Farnita Saunders.
by the Florida Commission on
Human Relations in recognition
of Fair Housing month in April.
The local contest was sponsored
by the Board Of County
Commissioners' Community
Development Department. The
contest was open to all fourth
graders in Gadsden, Wakulla,
Leon, and Jackson counties.
Each student was asked to par-
ticipate in a poster contest
expressing their feelings toward
diversity and acceptance of oth-
ers. Virgil received a standing
ovation after Community
Development Director Farnita
Saunders read the poem that
accompanied his poster.
In other matters commission-
ers were given an update by Jim
Kellum, chairman of the Board
of Director for the Gadsden
Senior Citizens Services.
"We started out the program
virtually broke. In the past few
years they served less than 100
people, this year we served 350
people weekly. This year we
will take in over $1 million dol-
lars to continue the servcies to
our seniors," Kellum said.

We ARE our brothers' keepers


A year ago last week Hurricane Katrina
made landfall. First in south Florida and
then along the Gulf Coast causing death
and destruction. The likes of the storm had
not been documented in history. The storm
touched thousands of Americans, including
me, personally. For millions of others it
touched their hearts and the generosity
poured out.
To mark the anniversary of the tragedy,
politicians have made their way back to
New Orleans to see what "has" or "has
not" been done. No sooner than planes
landed did fingers began pointing.
Criticism was the prevailing mood. Toes
that got stepped on, stepped on others. I
watched as politicians still had the time to
be so petty while thousands of people have
been uprooted from their homes and are
flung to all corners of the country.
Even if they felt many people are better
off away from New Orleans, it is their call
where they wish to live. When the storm
hit, no one was prepared. Even though
there had been a statewide drill several
months earlier, detailing what would
happen in the event a hurricane of lesser
magnitude struck. Some people watched it
and some didn't.
The truth is that not everyone would have
been able to get out. Many people did not
have automobiles or family and friends to
help them. They were stuck. Some have
tried to say the disparity of those who left
and those who did not was race. I say it
was economics.


It really didn't matter if you were Black,
White, Asian, or Native American, if you
had the money, you could get out of town.
Without a doubt many of those who
perished were black and poor whites. Their
deaths only speak to the need for unity in
this country. We are our brother's keeper.
If one of us hurt then all of us hurt. Those
who are materially more fortunate should
help those who are not.
And our leaders continuing to play the
blame game doesn't help. All it does is
ruffle more feathers and cause others to
question what they might be inclined to do
to help get things moving faster for the
folks who need some assistance.
Katrina taught us all a lesson and that is
that the "haves" and the "have nots" are
really not that far apart. Wind, rain, and the
storm surge took away mansions and
shanty homes in the same manner. Nothing
was left behind if you were in the path of
the destruction.
The amount of generosity of people
throughout the nation was astonishing.
When the government could not get help
to people because it couldn't get through
the red tape, people loaded up their
personal trucks, cars, buses, and boats and
took help to the people. That's is truly the
humanitarian spirit at its best.
So, as the first anniversary comes and
goes, we should all have a little more
generosity in our hearts. No because it
might be our turn next but because it's the
right thing to do.

Gone to the dogs


It was so hot the cows wouldn't come out
of the pond to eat. Sweat trickled down
your back when you were standing in the
shade-doing nothing! Only the most
adventurous of birds would brave the
heavy, oppressive heat to wing it up to the
electric lines stretched along the road.
Katydids had long stopped "katydiding".
Then it would rain for two hours.
After which, the heat came back with a
vengeance! You'could see the simmering
waves breaking across the little rise up by
Paul David Campbell's house and


engulfing everything in their path as they
rolled down the lane toward our place.
Breathing took some effort. The hens just
quit laying altogether. Tempers became
short. Giant mosquitoes rose up from the
roadside ditches like Creatures from the
Black Lagoon. And we wondered if them
little green Martians hadn't finally invaded
and taken over our air space.

When sturgeon strike


This week, I'd like to write about
something serious for a change: airborne
sturgeon.
It has come to my attention that there
have been six sturgeon strikes this summer
during which unsuspecting boat passengers
were walloped by big, ugly fish leaping
through the air.
I would say they were attacked, and, I
mean, one person on a boat in the
Suwannee River got her arm broken a
week ago by a sturgeon sailing through the
air and a little girl in the same boat got
knocked into the water, but "attack" is
absolutely the wrong word to describe the
sudden meeting of person and 200-pound
prehistoric fish.
I know this because in a moment of
unrestrained facetiousness, I asked Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission spokesman Willie Puz to give
me some details on recent sturgeon attacks.
"I am ASTOUNDED by how reporting
goes," he sputtered. "You figure these are
slow-moving fish, and a boat comes along
going 25-30 mph these fish just happen to
cross the path of people sometimes. They
do NOT attack people in boats."
Somebody should tell that to the
fisherman who got thrashed by one while
he was tooling along the Choctawhatchee
River four years ago. A Gulf sturgeon leapt
upward and into him, breaking his sternum
and several ribs. He lost control of his boat
and was thrown out onto the bank, where a
couple of other anglers rescued him and
drove him to the hospital. He kept the
stained, torn shirt he was wearing that day
as a memento of the whole hideous
episode.
His shirt, and his story, will be on the
Discovery Kids Channel's "Mystery
Hunters" show in November or January.
Earlier this month, a sturgeon leapt into a
23-year-old Wildwood man who was
riding a jet ski on the Suwannee River,
knocking him off and unconscious.
While there are sturgeon in both the
Ochlockonee and Apalachicola river
systems, those populations aren't as large
as the one in the Suwannee or the
Choctawhatchee, U.S. Fish and Wildlife
Services biologist Frank Parauka said.
But, he said, "they do jump."
Gulf sturgeon evolved from even larger
ancestors that existed more than 225
million years ago "they're living
dinosaurs," Parauka said.
These "smaller" sturgeon grow to 8 feet
and can weigh 200 pounds. They sport
bony plates on their heads and bodies,
fleshy whisker-looking things on their long
snouts and are a protected species.
I would like someone to explain to me
why a) we have a plethora of prehistoric,


would-rather-bite-you-than-look-at-you
animals in Florida, and b) it is against the
law to injure them in any way.
Not that sturgeon are big on biting.
They're just big on breaking bones.
Alligators do come to mind, though, in the
class of Jurassic Park kinds of animals that
will ingest you without apology or even
the right silverware.
This summer has seen more sturgeon
collisions than in recent years. Nobody's
sure why; Parauka says it's probably just a
matter of more boaters on waterways
where sturgeon live.
"People have to slow down and be
observant kind of like at deer crossings,"
he said.
Despite their penchant for hurling
themselves into the paths of large, moving
objects, sturgeon are fairly long-lived the
Gulf variety lives around 40 years. They
are anadromous, and before you get too far
into a debate about whether they should be
allowed to adopt orphaned fry, I'll remind
you that that's a term used to describe a
fish that spends part of its life in saltwater
before travelling upstream in freshwater
rivers to spawn.
In the late 1880s and early 1900s, they
were a valuable commodity for
commercial fisheries in Florida, and were
harvested for their meat and their roe.
After a drastic population decline, though,
it became illegal to harvest or capture them
in 1981. As it turns out, there are plans to
farm sturgeon right here in Gadsden
County Dr. Uford Madden of FAMU's
Cooperative Extension program has
written a proposal to help get 10 local
economically disadvantaged farmers
started in sturgeon-raising. They'll have to
stick with non-native species, though, and
it takes seven to nine years for a female to
produce roe, used in caviar production.
These days, sturgeon in the wild are
mostly swimming and spawning and
jumping, which some say is a form of
communication.
"Researchers out of Gainesville kind of
felt like jumping is a means of
communication. You usually find sturgeon
in groups when one jumps, it splashes
when it falls back in the water. It could be
a way to say to the others, 'Hey I'm over
here,'" Parauka said.
Or, Parauka noted, they could jump
"because they can."
And if you're wondering what a 200-
pound sturgeon eats, I'll tell you: Anything
it wants to.


Thanks to the gentlemen who happened
to be at the BP convenience store when my

Continued from Page 4

some relief. I instinctively
looked through the cracks in the
front porch to search out ole
Duke and Hatchie Bottom Sassy.
Those crazy dogs had lately taken
to spending morning, noon and
most of the night up under that
porch. And they alternated
between moaning and howling.
But I didn't think it was fair to
blame the heat and the rain and
the mosquitoes and the lack of
fresh eggs on Duke and Sassy......
I was trying to recollect back in
my little ten year old mind,
"Didn't we go through something
about like this last August?"
I asked Leon about it at supper.
He was five years older. And
pretty smart for a country boy.
"It's a Russian plot."
I studied on that for a brief
moment. "Leon, you're nuts!"
"No, I'm not. Khrushchev has
got some kind of secret weather
machine. They have pointed it
toward the southern United States
and cranked it up on high to test
our will. They know the heat will
burn our crops, quit the hens from
laying, dry up the water supply
and shorten the tempers of every
man, woman and child in its
path."
"What about the flies?" David
Mark was pouring ketchup on his
mashed up brown beans and
cornbread. "Do you reckon
Khrushchev is breeding them
along the Black Sea and shipping
them over here in cargo planes?"
The flies were worse than usual.
I think they just naturally went
with Dog Days. We sprayed the
horses. The cows escaped them
by hiding in the pond. The pigs
didn't seem to even notice 'em.
That just left the dogs. And the
humans. I can hear Mother to this
day, "Ya'll boys keep that screen
door shut. You're letting in all the
flies!"
And Leon's "Russian Plot"
theory wasn't all that far fetched
in 1957. You could sit on the
front porch down at Woodrow
Kennon's Mercantile, Dry Goods
and Grocery Store on any given
Saturday afternoon, and it
wouldn't take two shake's of a
jack rabbit's tail to get around to
blaming the Russians for
something.


I took in every word back in
those days. If the price of FRM
Chicken Scratch went up it was
because the Russians were using
more than their share. If Mr.
McCaleb's new Ford was late
coming in, it was a communist
plot. The stock market dropped if
the Russians threatened to move
into West Germany. That Sputnik
thing they had shot up into the air
was interfering with our radio
reception. And because we had to
keep so many tanks and planes
ready at all times in case the fight
started, gasoline had done gone
up to twenty-three cents a gallon.
Cold War and Dog Days! Those
were two very hot (no pun
intended) topics in the late
summers of Dwight David
Eisenhower's second term. You
can blame it on my youth, but I'd
get a little bewildered at times
over that grown-up talk. How.
could you fight if it got too cold?
And I was pretty sure the heat,
rain and flies weren't all the
dogs' fault!
I did know it was hot. And
miserable. And I stayed mad. It
would get so bad that Dad only
made us work half a day. And he
even let us pick out which twelve
hours we wanted to work.
We'd never heard of air
conditioning. Ceiling fans were
helpful but stirring hot air was,
after all, stirring hot air. And me
and David would wear ourselves
out fighting over who got "the
best spot" under the fan. i'd
dream of an ice cold Coca-Cola.
But they were on the luxury list-
which was a far cry from the
necessity list! Most folks today
don't remember when you had
two lists....
It got so hot one August we
called off a baseball game after
only twenty-three innings.
We'd dip in the pond with the
cows. But they'd get so stirred up
you couldn't do that long. We'd
take cold baths at night but that
would just make you sweat more
when you got out. We tried
sleeping in the barn but the flies,
mosquitoes and chickens would
run you out of there. I'd spend
the night with Ricky Hale but it
wasn't any cooler over on Forrest
Avenue. One August Leon came
up with a brilliant idea. He
wanted us to swap him for some
boy about his age that lived in
Alberta, Canada. I think Daddy
was all for it but Mom nixed the
deal.
I got so worried about Duke and


Sassy one extra hot day that I
crawled up under the porch to see
how they were fairing. They quit
howling and eyed me with
suspicion. I was rubbing Duke's
ear when I realized the shade was
pretty cool up under the porch.
And there was a right smart,
natural breeze whipping around
the corner of the house. And the
ground was a mite cool if you
didn't lay in one spot too long.
These hounds knew more about
Dog Days than we'd been giving
them credit for! Now, if I can just
get Mom to pass my brown beans
and cornbread under here to me, I
might be on to something......
Respectfully,
Kes

A new way of looking




at our county...





Pictometry



Images of houses, land boundaries will help

emergency management, law enforcement


* How it works:
A plane \ith an ll11-megapixel
camera fastened to its hell\ \\ill fl\
o\er a designated region lt,ing grids
that flo\\ east and \\est and north
and south. The camera takes pic-
tures from -45-degree angles. The
end result is a picture that sho\\s
building'S and land teatures from
vie\\ taken straight do\ n and from
all four sides.

*What it costs and how it will be
paid for:
Several giantm- are being pursued
in order to purchase LIDAR. which
costs around '80.000.

*How does it help?
"We \\ll ha\e a program \e canl
put on the computer for fire depart-
ments. the sheriff's office, emer-

By Leslie Roberts
Times News Editor

The way Gadsden County looks is about to
change, in more ways than one.
The county Planning and Zoning Department
has relied on aerial photos for years to establish
boundary lines and generally keep track of county
growth.
Now, it's going to have the help of pictometry, a
digital, oblique aerial photo process that will show
property from four angles it looks a bit like satel-
lite imagery, but doesn't have the ability to display
photos in real time.
It's decidedly more specific than traditional aer-
ial photography and will show detail as minute as
windows and people, although not in enough detail
to make out many recognizable characteristics.
"It's going to be huge for code enforcement,"
said Ken Stocks, principal planner for the depart-
ment. "The property appraiser will be able to use it
to see underneath the tree canopy. It's not an inva-
sion of privacy you can't make out license plates
or faces."
The software for the imagery includes a meas-
uring tool that will let Planning and Zoning
Department staff accurately measure cell phone
towers, for example, or a property appraiser meas-
ure an entire property.
Pictometry can also be a useful tool for fire
departments, emergency management and law
enforcement, Stocks said.
"We will have a program we can put on the
computer for fire departments, the sheriff's office,
emergency management, law enforcement agen-
cies this can help them when they are staging
things, especially at night," he said.


"Say it's midnight and there's a fire with pic-
tometry, you can see where the windows are.
Before you even get there you can see what's going
on."
Pictometry makes it possible for 911 operators
to pull up a picture instantly of the locale a person
is calling from. That's especially useful for search
and rescue teams, who can use the technology to
determine whether there are any landmarks in the
area lakes, pools, a stand of trees that might help
locate a lost child or hunter.
And in the event of a category two hurricane,
Pictometry has agreed to fly over the county to
help disaster management teams locate open roads,
assess damage and give officials an instant,
detailed picture of how hard the county was hit.
"We're inland, so we're going to be one of the
last to get help if there's a hurricane," Stocks said.
"This will enable us to see who needs help where
without waiting forever for someone else."
Stocks worked with county Growth
Management Services Director Bill McCord and
Property Appraiser Clay VanLandingham to bring
pictometry to Gadsden County. The company that
developed the device, Pictometry International
Corp., is working on garnering grants to cover its
$88,000 cost. Two likely funding sources are a
Homeland Security National Critical Infostructure
Grant and a Law Enforcement Community
Oriented Policing Services Grant Trom the U.S.
Department of Justice.
Basically, Pictometry works like this: A plane
with an 11-megapixel camera fastened to its belly
will fly over a designated region using grids that
flow east and west and north and south. The cam-
era takes pictures from 45-degree angles.
The end result is a picture that shows buildings


and land features from views taken straight down
and from all four sides.
Initial images are usually taken in the winter,
after all the leaves that are going to fall have, and
more pictures are taken periodically to help detect
how an area is changing.
Stock said the initial images could be taken is
February, if Pictometry is able to secure grants for
the device.
The Planning and Zoning Department is also
planning to implement LIDAR, or Light Detection
and Ranging, an instrument similar to radar that
transmits light to a target. When the light meets its
target, it interacts with it and some of the light is
reflected back to the instrument, enabling it to ana-
lyze the properties of the target and measure dis-
tance, speed, rotation and chemical composition
and concentration.
It will give planning and zoning departments a
much more accurate measurement of elevation,
Stocks said.
"With LIDAR, you would be able to see down
to an ant bed. The elevation model is down to a
foot in accuracy," he said. "We have some drainage
issues in the county we can model drainage in the
county, from this."
Stocks said several grants are being pursued in
order to purchase LIDAR, which costs around
$80,000.
"This would make flood zones a lot more accu-
rate. It will give us a real presence in the field and
reduce manpower, so we'll be able to recover
money the public can use," Stocks said.
"It's especially useful for public safety, and it's
great for real estate people, who can get on the
computer and basically fly around the county. It's
awesome stuff."

Bodies fall everywhere during action in Robert F. Munroe's 28-6 loss to Thomasville Brookwood.


Chiles snags win over EGHS


Wolves win flag-plagued

game 20-16
by Joe Ferolito
There were some good offensive and
defensive plays in the East Gadsden-Chiles
football game Friday night. It's just not
many of them were allowed to stand.
The big play that did stand came with


just 1:45 left when Chiles Melvin Ray,
leaped high and snatched a 39 yard throw
from John Moore giving Ray his third
touchdown of the night and the
Timberwolves a 20-16 regular season open-
ing win over East Gadsdeniat Jaguar Field.
Ray scored his first t.d. in quarter one
racing 76 yards with'a kick-off return, and
he got his second one early in the fourth
quarter, when he grabbed d V yard scoring


toss from Moore.
Ray's first t.d. came after East Gadsden
had taken an opening quarter lead on a 1
yard run by Darius Jackson. That quarter
ended tied 6-6.
By halftime the Jaguars led 14-6 on a
second one yard run by Jackson and a 2-
point conversion toss from Micha Brown to


Bobcats drop opener


to Brookwood 28-6

Brookwood of Thomasville jumped to a 21-0 halftime lead in
route to a 28-6 win over Munroe in a Corry Field Friday night foot-
ball game.
The South Georgia team added another touchdown in the third
quarter before Munroe got on the board with a fourth quarter touch-
down which Cody Watson scored on an 8 yard run.
Munroe got into scoring territory several times but turnovers
hurt them.,
Jason Cook with 7 pancake blocks led the offensive line for the
Bobcats.
On defense Chris McDonald had a pair of interceptions.
Munroe will host Panama City Christian Friday night at Corry
Field in a 7:30 pm game.


Bolles spoils


WGHS opener

"They were a well coached bunch, which we expected." West
Gadsden coach Robert Jackson said about the Bolles football team.
"They jumped out pretty quick and we had trouble making things
happen."
The 4A Jacksonville team beat the 2A Panthers 42-7 on the
Panther Field Friday night.
Chris Williams scored the West Gadsden touchdown while Javan
Davis led the defense with 8 tackles, 2 assists, and a sack.
It was the regular season opener for both teams.
West Gadsden will play at Blountstown Friday night. The game
will begin at 8:30 pm.

RFM volleyball team loses

5-game heartbreaker,

opener; WGHS loses 3


The Munroe volleyball team
lost a heartbreaking five game
match to Blountstown last
Tuesday.
After dropping the first two
games rather easily with 25-13
and 25-14 scores, the team ral-
lied behind the outstanding play
of senior Julia Bates to take
games three and four (26-24,
25-21).
In the fifth game,
Blountstown took advantage of
few Lady Cat miscues to win the
game 15-10 and the match.
Bates finished with five blocks
and 10 digs. Ivie Thomas
served up ten assists and Crystal
Wade had three kills and 8 digs.
Freshman Spenser Morris,

sprained ankle and will be out
for at least a month.
Coach Mike Dolan said, "I
was pleased with the way the
team fought back after losing
the first two games. We defi-
nitely looked our best in this
match."

Thursday night in their sea-
son home opener, the Lady Cats
found the power game of North
Florida Christian's took strong.
NFC took three straight win-
ning 25-11, 25-13 and 25-8.
Ivie Thomas finished with 8
assists and 4 digs. The team
dropped to 2-5 on the season.
Coach Dolan observed,
"We sat back and let NFC
take this match. Our girls
should have wanted it more,
fought harder and played
stronger. We have got to devel-
op a winning attitude no matter
who we are playing and no mat-
ter what the score."
Monday night, West Gadsden
lost three straight games to
Cottondale (25-11, 25-12, 25-
17). Cottondale moved to 6-3
on the season.

Ronald Gordon.
By halftime there were also
26 penalty flags thrown nullify-
ing fine offensive and defensive
plays by both teams.
By the end of the game over
50 flags were thrown and over
40 penalties were assessed with
East Gadsden getting tagged for
close to 200 yards in fines and
Chiles losing over 100 yards to
the yellow scarfs.
The Jaguars managed a safe-
ty on a botched Chiles punt
attempt early in the second half
to go up 16-6. They had a
chance to add points when they
started on their own 40 after the
Timberwolf kick following the
safety.
On runs by Brown and
Jackson they reached the Chiles
22 before losing the ball on
downs. They also lost Brown a
few plays later when he suc-
cumbed to cramps. That hurt


the Jaguars bad down the
stretch.
The Timberwolf size also
hurt as they started pushing
down the field behind the run-
ning of Brian Hartsfield and
Moore to set up Rays early
fourth quarter score that made it
16-12.
Jackson stopped a next
Timberwolf drive with his sec-
ond pass interception of the
night but without Brown the
Jaguars couldn't move the ball
and they opted to give up a safe-
ty when they were forced to
punt from their end zone, put-
ting the score at 16-14, with just
over 3 minutes left.
Runs by Hartsfield right up
the middle got Chiles to the East
Gadsden 34. The Jaguar's
Lance Ray then threw Moore for
an 18 yard loss which was nulli-
fied by a so called celebration
penalty. Instead of being on their
on 48 the Timberwolves were on
the Jaguar 39.
That's when Ray made his
nifty catch from Moore giving


Chiles the lead.
East Gadsden had a last shot
and they used a 27 yard pass
from Jamaica Moore to Patrick
Smith to reach the Timberwolf
39. Then they ran into three
straight flags that carried them
back to their own 29, and out of
the game, much to the discon-
tent of the home crowd.
"The penalties hurt." Coach
Scott Anderson said. "But, los-
ing Brown also hurt. I also


thought we had a chance to wrap
the game up in the third quarter
when we had a chance to score."
Anderson continued.
"I'm not going to take any-
thing away from Chiles though.
They kept coming at us. And
Ray made a great play."
East Gadsden will try to even
their season record when they
travel to Tallahassee Friday
night and take on FAMU at
Bragg Stadium at 7:30pm

Salters in TCC 'Hall'


First basketball
players named
to Hall of Fame
A pair of former hardwood
standouts, including East
Gadsden's Dimitric Salters will
be honored when Tallahassee
Community College inducts its
fifth class into the Eagle
Athletics Hall of Fame.
Salters (men's basketball)
and Sancha Cargill (women's
basketball) will be enshrined
during the 7 p.m. ceremony on
Friday, Sept. 29 at the Ramada
Inn & Conference Center.
Auburn University pmen's
basketball coach Jeff Lebo, a
former All-Atlantic Coast
Conference performer at the
University of North Carolina,
will serve as guest speaker for
the event.
Salters, the boy's basketball
coach at East Gadsden High
School and a native of nearby
Havana, has compiled an
impressive basketball resume,
dating back to his days at the
former Havana Northside High
School.


Schools honors


His collegiate career began at
Florida A&M University, where
he played as a freshman. Prior
to the 1994-95 season, he trans-
ferred to Tallahassee
Community College and played
under former coach Mike
Gillespie.

gave Summit Professional
Services, Inc. permission to
conduct the second public
hearing regarding the proposed
Community Development Block
Grant ("Bradwell Project")
economic development
application for $750,000. The
money will be used to provide
infrastructure for the construction
of a Huddle House restaurant and
a bowling alley. The project
would create approximately 17
jobs.
Last year the BOCC was
awarded a grant that will be' used
to extend sewer lines at the State
Road 267/Interstate 10
Interchange.
Fancy footwork and an attempt
to turn one bid into two didn't
help Lee Garner, chairman of the
Tourist Development Authority
Tuesday as commissioners put
the brakes on a request from the
TDC to spend $49,456 to
implement its advertising and
marketing plan.
Garner wanted to allow the
Gadsden County Chamber of
Commerce to serve as the "sole
source" provider to purchase
local, state and national
advertising to promote the
county. But prior to being
declared a sole source, three bids
must be obtained and only if
three bids are not received, then
written justification is required
for consideration as a sole source
provider.


son with the Eagles, Salters
averaged 8.3 points, 2.4
rci-..iunds and 3.8 assists per
.iin I- and was on a squad that
ini'lhd 24-8 and advanced to
[th:e F .rida Community College
Aci Ities .Association
ToLuI inament as Panhandle
Coiitcence Rtinners-Up. At the
FCC \A Tournament, he helped
TCC to its first ever postseason
c. iet, ., a 93-90 win over Indian
Ri ei Community College.
S.liters spent his final two
seLnrs at Thomas College,

.niccan honors in 1996-97.

Sa'l3ici' basketball career

Gadsden.
Cargill is part of an outstand-
ing list of female student-ath-
letes who have found their way
to TCC from the Caribbean
island of Jamaica. A native of
Kingston, Cargill played basket-
ball for coach Teresa Atkiinson
and the Lady Eagles from 1997-


phenomenal. And the best is yet to come."
Gadsden County has 10 elementary schools, two
middle schools, six high schools and three
combination schools. Crossroad Academy tied with
Phoenix Academy in Sarasota for the fourthplace
on the list of top 50 combination schools for making
progress; Shanks Middle Schools was ranked at 30
on the same list along with West Glades Elementary.


However, the county's
purchasing policy clearly states
that when using services between
$10,001 and $25,000 "the end
user must secure a minimum of
three written quotations which
shall be the result of written
specification transmitted orally,
by mail, fax or electronically.
When the quotes are received
they should be sealed until the
time set for opening bids."
Garner, who is also chairman of
the Board of Directors for the
Chamber of Commerce, wanted
to split the marketing plan into
two components over a 15 month
period that would divide the cost
of the general marketing plan and
the natural, travel, heritage, and
events marketing. The general
marketing plan would cost
$24,924 while the other plan
would receive $24,532. The plan
as presented by Garner would
violate the county's purchasing
policy.
"What's wrong with you getting
bids, Mr. Garner?" Ed Dixon
asked.
Garner said there was nothing
wrong with getting bids, but
questioned why get bids when
the Chamber of Commerce
would do it. Dxion said the
bidding process was the fair and
equitable way the handle such a'
project.
"This has been batted around
for several months now, you all
could have had bid by 'now,"
Dixon said.
Commissioner Brenda Holt said
the TDC should do more to
promote the entire county.. She
said she felt the TDC did not
distribute the funds evenly.

(Stand For Your Parents)

You do not have to be a Rocket Scientist, or have 20-20 vision to see and understand what a
few are attempting to sneak pass the rest of us in Gadsden County. Hoping it wouldn't grasp a
lot of attention, but it did. Who should be concerned? Anyone that owns land in Gadsden
County should be concerned even outraged at what Mrs. Jeanne Gunn and a hand full of here
followers are attempting to do with our parents land. Do Mrs. Gunn and her followers own
"Your Parents Property", if not, don't let them take It away from you by force. Mrs. Jeanne
Gunn could have easily voted to support the Family Exemption but she chose to kill it dead
on arrival to pacify a few that want to control the county their way. Who is Mrs. Gunn repre-
senting; it certainly is not the working families or our parents. Beloved our parent cannot
defend for themselves; therefore we must be vocal on their behalf. It's a fact we owe our par-
ents that much for the many blessing they have given us from their sweat and hard work. As
our parents age and become senior citizens they need their children as close to them as possi-
ble. Those on the board of planning in zoning should pass laws that bridge families together
and not drive them apart. Mrs. Gunn does not just sit on the Planning and Zoning Board but
she is the chairman she could have "Stopped" the vote to kill the Family Exemption but she
did not. Instead she voted to take our Family Exemption away. I guess Mrs. Gunn thought it
was healthy for the county. Well fellow citizens it comes down to the good people in Mt.
Pleasant, Gretna, Friendship, St. John, Robertsville, Quincy, Scott town and Hard away
because you are the only ones that can rescue the rest of us by voting for Commissioner
Brenda Holt, if not Your Parents loses the ability to control their land.

Jeanne Gunn


is up to the


challenge of a


tough job!


As a member of Gadsden County's

Planning and Zoning Board she is

charged with keeping development

in our county in check.

Rules have to be followed... Rules

set by our own county and the

State of Florida. Sometimes follow-

ing those rules means making tough

decisions. Some people in our

county would like her and the

Board to ignore our laws and allow

practices that will overcrowd our

fragile environment and create

problems for everyone, even the

people they seek to appease.

Jeanne Gunn listens to anyone with

any input on a Planning and Zoning

issue with compassion. But her

decisions are solid. No empty

promises, just a job well-done.

Lady Superfriends


is Sunshine State


'Athlete of Year'


For the first time in the History of
the Jimmy Carnes Sunshine State
Games Athlete of the Year, a team,
the Lady Superfriends basketball
squad, has won the award for their
performance during the summer of
2006.
Joining the Lady Superfriends in
the honor is Tim Gehret, a member of
the Fairest and Squarest Ultimate
team.
The Lady Superfriends, made up
Sof players from East Gadsden and
-Sneads High School, won five games
to win the Sunshine State Games
Junior Varsity Division and beat the
Wellington Wolves, 63-54, in the
championship game.
They followed up that perform-
ance with the 18 and under champi-
:onship at the Inaugural Southeast
.Sports Festival, in Shelby County,
;AL, to give them a 7-0 summer
record.

Personnel
Continued from Page 1
Before and during Tuesday night's
,regular Gadsden County School Board
-meeting, support personnel walked
:around carrying signs with slogans
like, "We deserve better than Cs," and,
"Respect us."
The group, which includes
secretaries, bus drivers, cafeteria
workers and other support personnel,
is at an impasse with the School Board
over raises.
Big Bend Service Unit Director Paul
Burdette Sr., the bargaining agency for
both the teachers' union and the
:support personnel union, told board
members his patience is at an end.
"We want to know: When will you
settle this contract?" he said. "We ask
that you support the support staff ...
,without us, we don't think you can go
as far as you need to go."
Gadsden County School Board
'Chairman Roger Milton said support
personnel are appreciated.
"This board certainly appreciates
.whatever role they play in our school
.system," he said.
Gadsden County Schools
Superintendent Reginald James
echoed that sentiment.
"We support all our staff," he said.

Gehret was a member of the
Juggernaut Bracket Championship
Ultimate team of Fairest and
Squarest, who went 5-0 in pool play
and advanced through the champi-
onship bracket, defeating Orlando
Mut 11-4 and Yano Miami 15-6 in
the championship game.
Gehret and the Lady Superfriends

letes who competed in 2006
Sunshine State Games competitions
running from April through July
2006.
declared an impasse after the July
negotiations and rejected the offer of a
2 percent increase. The group is asking
for a 7.56 percent increase. That figure
includes step increases.
The picket signs, Burdette said, were
"a group decision.
"We had to make some kind of
display or effort to let them know we
are not going away," he said. "We're
not taking a second-rate stance."
Burdette represents around 398
Gadsden County support personnel, of
whom 135 are union members.
The School Board met in executive
session, which is closed to the public,
after Tuesday's meeting to discuss the
issue. They asked to be provided with
payroll figures for support personnel
by the Sept. 6 meeting, with the
possibility of a negotiation meeting
Sept. 12. They also set a tentative date
for a Legislative hearing Sept. 25.
Burdette said he hopes to be able to
negotiate a settlement before the
matter goes to a Legislative hearing.
Other items of contention are the
union's request that paraprofessionals
be paid more when they work as
substitute teachers.
But James says the school district's
paraprofessionals are already well-
compensated. "Our paraprofessionals
are the highest-paid in the region,"
James. said.
James also said' he believes the two
sides will be able to come to an
agreement at the Sept. 12 meeting.

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.

"You don't have to \', itit until
you're in high school or until
you're an adult to decide
what you're going o H
do with your life -
you can decide right now. And we all
have to understand if we're going to
make it to the next level, we have to

Teens had an opportunity to ask a
panel comprised of local politicians,

Gadsden County Judge Kathy

also spoke to the youths assembled for
the summit, urging them to think twice
before committing a crime.
"I believe in our children that's
why I am here today," he said. "There
are so many filling up our streets now
and in our jails ... that system is real
down there. The people who control the


system they have a job to do and they
look at you as a number, not a person.
In 2003-2004, we sent 600 young peo-
ple from Gadsden County to jail. Right
now, every two weeks we are sending
25 young men and women to prison."

women.
Hayes has worked as a correspon-

enhance and transcend the lives of
those who are without hope."
Other summit panel members

Labor Day is a federal holiday that celebrates the accomplishments of American workers both past t
and present. The holiday is observed on the first Monday of September of each year. The effort
of these workers have helped to form the United Stales of America as we know it today. This holiday is a day
of rest, family gathering time, and traditionally fireworks, to commemorate all of the laborers. All schools are
closed on this day, as well as all federal offices. Most state ofices are also closed, along with many private
businesses. In June 1894, Congress officially made the holiday the first Monday of every September.
Though the origin of Labor Day is not completely clear, there are many theories regarding who first
established the holiday. The Knights of Labor, a labor union that was formed in 1869. The group decided to
hold a parade in New York City on September 5th, 1882 to honor its members and all other laborers. The
parade was such a success that another was held in 1884, and since then has become an annual event.
Some believe that the origin of Labor Day began by a man named Peter McGuire. McGuire was a member of
the Brotherhood of Carpenters and Joiners, as well as being an original member of the American Federation
of Labor. Others believe that the holiday was suggested by a man named Matthew Maguire. And though the
actual origin is unknown, it is agreed by most that the holiday is meaningful in honor those that put forth
efforts in the American LaborForce. ross: Labor Day CroSS orfd

Through this funding pro-
vided by the Florida Legislature,
the Florida Department of
Education (DOE) awarded 87
new competitive grants to sup-
port new and expanding pro-
grams in nursing/allied health,
manufacturing, automotive
technology and teacher certifi-
cation in public and private
career centers, community col-
leges and universities all areas
designated by Enterprise Florida
and Workforce Florida as target-
ed sectors for statewide eco-
nomic development.
The funding will also support
the addition of 102 career acad-
emies with $5.3 million from
SUCCEED, Florida! and nearly
$2.1 million from funding the
Florida Legislature appropriated
to implement Governor Bush's
A++ Plan for Education.
"The SUCCEED, Florida!
Grant Program will ensure our
state has a well-educated and
strong workforce in the health,


ter meet our state's critical need
for teachers," said
Commissioner Winn. "The
funding of 102 career oriented
academies represents the state's
first down payment on new edu-
cational experiences and oppor-
tunities for our high school stu-
dents."
The SUCCEED, Florida!
Grant Program is aligned with
Commissioner Winn's four-
point plan to better prepare
today's students for tomorrow's
workforce. Last year
Commissioner Winn identified
measures the DOE would take
to expand career academies in
high schools, align career edu-
cation with industry standards
and workforce demands and
expand options for students to
continue their education and
enter the workplace. Since the
creation of the program, 141
new career academies have been
funded.
"SUCCEED, Florida! fund-
ing helps us create a pipeline
beginning in high school to meet
our state's workforce needs, and
create opportunities for students
to begin climbing their career
ladder in high schools, technical
centers, community colleges
and universities."

Have You Seep Me?

My name is Tya. I am a beautiful white 12
week- old kitten with unique markings. I have a
black circled-patch that's little bigger than a fifty-
cent piece on one side and lack markings on my
opposite side. I belong to a little sevenwyear old
girl named Sydney who loves me very much and
is heart-broken that I, am gone. Sydney found me
abandoned at birth, nursed me back to health, and
stayed with me her entire summer to ensure that
I adjusted at her grandmother's home in Quincy.
I could not return with Sydney to Tampa because
of restrictions at her apartment complex. I have
been missing from Ball. Farm Road since the
afternoon of August 12, 2006.
If you have any information on my whereabouts,
please leave a message at 509-7209. A reward is
being offered for my return.

to discourage use of
tobacco, particularly
among youth, a portion
of the money that tobac-
co companies pay to the
State of Florida' under
the Tobacco Settlement
each year shall be used
to fund a comprehensive
statewide tobacco edu-
cation and prevention
program consistent with
recommendations of the
U.S. Centers for Disease
Control and Prevention
(CDC), as follows:
(a) Program. The.
money appropriated pur-
suant to this section shall
be used to fund a com-
prehensive statewide
tobacco education and
prevention program con-
sistent with the recom-
mendations for effective
program components in
the 1999 Best Practices
for Comprehensive
Tobacco Control
Programs of the CDC, as
such Best Practices may
be amended by the
CDC. This program
shall include, at a mini-
mum, the following com-
ponents, and may
include additional com-
ponents that are also
contained within the
CDC Best Practices, as
periodically amended,
and that are effective at
accomplishing the pur-
pose of this section, and
that do not undermine
the effectiveness of
these required minimum
components:
(1) an advertising cam-
paign to discourage the
use of tobacco and to
educate people, espe-
cially youth, about the
health hazards of tobac-
co, which shall be
designed to be effective
at achieving these goals
and shall include, but
need not be limited to,
television, radio, and
print advertising, with no
limitations on any indi-
vidual advertising medi-
um utilized; and which
shall.b1e funded at a level
equivalent to one-third of
each total annual appro-
priation required by this
section;
(2) evidence-based cur-
ricula and programs to
educate youth about


tobacco and to discour-
age their use of it, includ-
ing, but not limited to,
programs that involve
youth, .educate youth
about the health hazards
of tobacco, help youth
develop skills to refuse
tobacco, and demon-
strate to youth how to
stop using tobacco;
(3) programs of local
community-based part-
nerships that discourage
the use of tobacco and
work to educate people,
especially youth, about
the health hazards of
tobacco, with an empha-
sis on programs that
involve youth and
emphasize the preven-
tion and cessation of
tobacco use;
(4) enforcement of
laws, regulations, and
policies against the sale
or other provision of
tobacco to minors, and
the possession of tobac-
co by minors; and
(5) publicly-reported
annual evaluations to
ensure that moneys
appropriated pursuant to
this section are spent
properly, which shall
include evaluation of the
program's effectiveness
in reducing and prevent-
ing tobacco use, and
annual recommenda-
tions for improvements
to enhance the pro-
gram's effectiveness,
which are to include
comparisons to similar
programs proven to be
effective in other states,
as well as comparisons
to CDC Best Practices,
including amendments
thereto.
(b) Funding. In every
year beginning with the
calendar year after vot-
ers approve this amend-
ment, the Florida
Legislature shall appro-
priate, for the purpose
expressed herein, from
the total gross funds that
tobacco companies pay
to the State of Florida
under the Tobacco
Settlement, an amount
equal to fifteen percent
of such funds paid to the
State in 2005; and the
appropriation required
by this section shall be
adjusted annually for


inflation, using the
Consumer Price Index
as published by the
United States
Department of Labor.
(c) Definitions.
"Tobacco" includes, with-
out limitation, tobacco
itself and tobacco prod-
ucts that include tobacco
and are intended or
expected for human use
or consumption, includ-
ing, but not limited to,
cigarettes, cigars, pipe
tobacco, and smokeless
tobacco. The 'Tobacco
Settlement" means that
certain Settlement
Agreement dated August
25, 1997, entered into in
settlement of the case
styled as State of
Florida, et al. v.
American Tobacco
Company, et al., Case
No. 95-1466 AH (Fla.
15th Cir. Ct.), as amend-
ed by Stipulation of
Amendment dated
September 11, 1998;
and' includes any subse-
quent amendments and
successor agreements.
"Youth" includes minors
and young adults.
(d) Effective Date.
This amendment shall
become effective imme-
diately upon approval by
the voters.

Financial Impact State-
ment:
This amendment
requires state govern-
ment to appropriate
approximately $57 mil-
lion in 2007 for the
Comprehensive
Statewide Tobacco Edu-
cation and Prevention
Program. Thereafter,
this amount will increase
annually with inflation.
This spending is expect-
ed to reduce tobacco
consumption. As a
result, some long-term
savings to state and
local government health
and insurance programs
are probable, but inde-
terminate. Also, minor
revenue loss to state
government is probable,
but indeterminate.

ner prescribed by law.

years.
(b) Not more than one
exemption shall be
allowed any individual or
family unit or with respect
to any residential unit. No
exemption shall exceed
the value of the real
estate assessable to the
owner or, in case of own-
ership through stock or
membership in a corpo-
ration, the value of the
proportion which the
interest in the corpora-
tion bears to the
assessed value of the
property.
(c) By general law and
subject to conditions
specified therein, the
exemption shall be
increased to a total of
twenty-five thousand dol-
lars of the assessed

for each school district
levy. By general law and
subject, to conditions
specified therein, the
exemption for all other
levies may be increased
up to an amount not
exceeding ten thousand
dollars of the assessed

abled and it the owner is
not entitled to the exemp-
tion provided in subsec-
tion (d).
(d) By general law and
subject to conditions

assessments; twenty-five
thousand dollars with
respect to assessments
for 1982 and each year
thereafter.

ment roll until such roll is
first determined to be in
compliance with the pro-
visions of section 4 by a
state agency designated
by general law. This sub-
section shall stand

date of anyamendment
to section 4 which pro-
vides for the assessment

a specified percentage of
its just value.
(e) By general law and
subject to conditions
specified therein, the
Legislature may provide
to renters, who are per-
manent residents, ad val-
orem tax relief on all ad
valorem tax levies. Such
ad valorem tax relief
shall be in the form and
amount established by
general law.
(f) The legislature may,
by general law, allow
counties or municipali-
ties, for the purpose of
their respective taxlevies
and .subject to the provi-
sions of general law, to
grant an additional
homestead tax exemp-
tion not exceeding twen-
ty-five thousand dollars

the legal or equitable title
to real estate and main-
tains thereon the perma-
nent residence of the
owner and who has
attained age sixty-five
and whose household
income, as defined by
general law, does not
exceed twenty thousand
dollars. The general law
must allow counties and
municipalities to grant
this additional exemp-
tion, within the limits pre-
scribed in this subsec-
tion, by ordinance adopt-
ed in the manner pre-
scribed by general law,
and must provide for the
periodic adjustment of
the income limitation pre-
scribed in this subsection
for changes in the cost of
living.
(g) Each veteran who is
age 65 or older who is
partially or totally perma-
nently disabled shall
receive a discount from
the amount of the ad val-
orem tax otherwise owed
on homestead property
the veteran owns and
resides in if the disability
was combat related, the
veteran was a resident of
this state at the time of
entering the military serv-
ice of the United States.
and the veteran was hon-
orably discharged upon
separation from military


service. The discount
shall be in a percentage
equal to the percentage
of the veteran's perma-
nent, service-connected
disability as determined
by the United States
Department of Veterans
Affairs. To qualify for the
discount granted by this
subsection, an applicant
must submit to the coun-
ty property appraiser, by
March 1, proof of resi-
dency at the time of
entering military service,
an official letter from the
United States


Department of Veterans
Affairs stating the per-
centaqe of the veteran's
service-connected dis-
ability and such evidence
that reasonably identifies
the disability as combat
related, and a copy of the
veteran's honorable dis-
charge. If the property
appraiser denies the
request for a discount,
the appraiser must notify
the applicant in writing of
the reasons for the
denial and the veteran
may reapply. The
Legislature may, by gen-
eral law waive the annu-
al application require-
ment in subsequent
years. This subsection

Swamp Gravy Celebrates 15th


Season with 'Visiting Hours'


A lonely visitor brings more than his company
as he travels through turn-of-the-last century
Colquitt, Georgia. The gift this mysterious
stranger leaves behind will hide a small secret and
reveal a great truth. The gift will pull a family
together in it's abundance, and will pull a town
together after the gift is lost.
This year's production of Swamp Gravy:
Visiting Hours is a blend of mystery, music, and
mischief with tales of visitors- family and
strangers alike- who sometimes bring more than
we expected.
These characters may test Colquitt's never-
ending hospitality, but they make for some unfor-
gettable "visiting hours."
Swamp Gravy's plays, steeped in the Southern
art of storytelling, are based on true stories told by


the community, and dished up with a healthy serv-
ing of original music and traditional hymns.
Swamp Gravy's world renowned cast of 100 vol-
unteers brings these stories to life in what has
become Georgia's celebrated Official Folk Life
Play.
Swamp Gravy: Visiting Hours is written by
playwright Jules Corriere and directed by Swamp
Gravy's original artistic director, Richard Geer.
The performances run Thursdays through
Saturday, including a Saturday matinee, through-
out October. To experience the play that "...united
a town and moved a nation," please call 1-229-
758-5450 or visit www.swampgravy.com.
For more information, contact Kacee Holt,
Marketing Director, at 1-229-758-5450 or write to
kacee@swampgravy.com.


The sound of gunfire will erupt in downtown Dothan on Saturday, Sept. 9 during the Johnny Mack
Brown Film Festival. Members of the Georgia-based Los Pistoleros will be in town to reenact "The
Dothan Riot", an actual shoot-out that occurred on the streets of Dothan in 1889.


Johnny Mack Brown, Dothan


riot remembered at festival


The "Dothan Riot", an actual
shoot-out that took place in the
street of downtown Dothan in
1889 will be one of the activities
that will take place on Saturday,
Sept. 9 during Dothan's Johnny
Mack Brown Film Festival.
Dothan is the birthplace and,
boyhood home of the late
Western movie star Johnny
Mack Brown, and the town is,
scheduling its second film festi-
val in his honor Sept. 8 & 9.
The two-day festival will fea-
ture numerous Johnny Mack
Brown movies shown in
Dothan's historic Opera House,
lectures and presentations on his
football and Hollywood career,
a concert by the Grammy
Award-winning western and
comedy band Riders In The Sky,
movie memorabilia, a "viewing
room" of other more modern
westerns, an outdoor BBQ, a
display of one of the largest col-
lections of Johnny Mack Brown
memorabilia you will see any-
where in the country, and a re-
enactment of the shootout that
was once dubbed by surround-
ing newspapers as "The Dothan
Riot".
In October of 1889, a shoot-
out took place on the streets of
Dothan that left two men dead
and several wounded, including
Tobe Domingus, the town mar-
shal.
The violence was precipitat-
ed by a running feud between
the Farmers Alliance and town
officials who tried to tax drays
or wagons used on city streets.
Enforcing the new ordinance in
the young town was no easy
task, and tensions were high
after an alliance member,
George Stringer, was arrested
and clubbed into submission by
the town 'marshal for violating
the new law and refusing to be
arrested. .
On the day of the trial, the
judge quickly recessed court due

Suwannee wilderness trail launched


National Geographic
map provides details
of the trail

The Florida Park Service
recently unveiled a multimedia
map system providing detailed
information about the Suwannee
RiverWilderness Trail. The
Park Service contracted with
National Geographic to produce
both print and electronic desti-
nation maps providing compre-
hensive information on physical
details and activities along the
trail.
"The Suwannee River
Wilderness Trail is an excep-
tional outdoor recreational expe-
rience that draws thousands of
visitors to one of Florida's most
renowned rivers and boosts
local economies," said Florida
Department of Environmental
Protection (DEP) Secretary
Colleen M. Castille. "The
detailed print and interactive
electronic maps will help pro-
mote one of the state's most his-
toric rivers, scenic state parks
and North Florida's rural cultur-
al heritage."
Developed during the last
two years, the destination maps
provide information about the
Suwannee River Wilderness
Trail, including the multitude of
recreational opportunities
offered along the 170-mile trail.
The companion maps are a part
of the National Geographic geo-
tourism series and available
both online and by request.
"The destination map


encourages veteran adventurers
arid newcomers alike to come
explore the Suwannee River
Wilderness Trail," said Florida
Park Service Director Mike
Bullock. "Visitors can plan and
enhance their Suwannee River
Wilderness adventure by utiliz-


ing these comprehensive
resources."
Initiated by Governor Jeb
Bush in 2002, The Suwannee
River Wilderness Trail is a part-
nership program between DEP,

Unsung and often unnoticed, they make
our community a better place to live.

Every Month Only In

ZTbe @absben (Countp timeS
Let us introduce you (or, in many cases, re-introduce you) to someone
in our community that takes volunteerism and sacrifice to the next level.
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.
Email your suggestions to Editor Alice
DuPont at gctimes@comcast.net
