crash

kills one

By ALICE DUPONT
Times Editor
A 20-year-old Tallahassee
woman died Labor Day near
Havana on Highway 270 around
4:30 p.m. in a one car crash.
According to a report released
by the Florida Highway Patrol,
Summer K. Humphries of 4816
Deerrun Drive, was traveling
west in a 1999 Nissan when she
failed to navigate a curve, leaving
the roadway on the north side.
She over corrected and came
back on the road causing the
vehicle to begin to rotate striking
a grass ditch and a brick culvert.
After striking the culvert, the
vehicle became airborne and
began to overturn, ejecting
Humphries onto the ground.
According to the report,
Humphries was not wearing a
seatbelt.
The investigation is continuing.

Holt, Croley win by big margins


Incumbents win

school board race

by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
Incumbents Brenda Holt, Isaac Simmons
and Charlie Frost carried home victories
Tuesday night and not by slight margins
either.
Doug Croley, county commission district
4, must face two other challengers in the
November election.
But only 31 percent of the people spoke
and they said they.didn't want any change.
"I'm elated. I had confidence in the
voters. I felt that I had done a good job
when I look at the accomplishments we
have made (on the county commission),"
Holt said at her victory party.
Holt garnered nearly 64 percent of the


votes (1,170). in District
Dora Gunn got 746 votes.


2 while Jeanne


Simmons thanked his supporters for
having the confidence in to return him to
office. He defeated challenger Barry
Young 1,021 (70 percent)to 433.
"I feel good about the victory. My
opposition ran a good, clean race. But
what I have learned is that there is room
for improvement and to get more people
involved in our educational system. I am
grateful that my supporters put me back in
office. But I am disappointed at the low
turnout," said Simmons.
Frost, who defeated two opponents,
walked away with 1,043 votes or 57
precent. Challengers Clarence Jackson II
got 404 votes while Tom Davis got 382
votes.
"It took a lot of hard work but I think the
people saw that the school district is
moving in the right direction. Our grades
are up, enrollment is up, and a lot of things


are looking better," he said.
In his victory speech Croley reminded
about 50 supporters that they still have more
campaigning to do in the next 90 days.
While he defeated Shelanda Shaw (1,069
to 746) he faces Independents James
Kellum and Don White in the November
general election.
"We have just taken the first steps," he.
said, reiterating his promise to provide
sensible economic development, improve
transportation and improve infrastructure
in the county.
Supervisor of Elections Shirley Green
Knight predicted that between 30 and 35
percent of the registered voters would turn
out. She said that early votes ran about 300
less than in the 2004 election.

County

salary list

corrected

By ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

In an article that appeared in
last week's edition of the
Gadsden County Times a pay
schedule for top ranking county
employees was published. The
information on the salaries,
which is public record, was
supplied by County
Commissioner Eugene Lamb.
However, it has come to the
attention of this newspaper that
the published salary schedule was
incorrect and many salaries are
higher than those previously
printed. Here are the actual
salaries as of August 31, 2006:
*Arthur Lawson, asst. county
manager, earns $78,702. 00 not
$76,410.10; lives in Leon
County.
*Davin Suggs, budget director,
earns $70,000.00 not $60,000.20;
lives in Leon County.
*Farnita Saunders, community
development director, earns
$63,938.00 not $62,000; lives in
Leon County.
*Marlon Brown, county
manager, earns $87,447.00; lives

School board gives formal


okay to teachers' 7% raise


by Leslie Roberts
Times News Editor '
The Gadsden County School Board gave formal
approval last Tuesday to the 7 percent step increase
negotiated with the Gadsden County Classroom
Teachers Association.
The board voted unanimously to approve a
recommendation from Schools Superintendent
Reginald James that an addendum to the GCCTA
master contract be OK'd. GCCTA ratified the
proposed 2006-2007 salary schedule at its June 24
meeting; the contract changes also give teachers at
least one planning period of 40 minutes per day.
Under the addendum, the board agreed to link the
supplemental salary schedule remunerations to the
bachelor's step zero according to the percentages
agreed on by both sides; high school football head
coaches got the largest increase at 10 percent.
"Those 'coaches make a major commitment,"
school board member Eric Hinson said. "One day
we've got to address coaches' supplements."
"There has been a substantial increase in every
supplemental position," School Board member Isaac
Simmons responded.
Under the supplemental pay schedule approved by
the board, head high school football coaches get a
10 percent step increase, or $3,001; last year, they
got an 8.64 percent increase. Middle school football
coaches and high school basketball coaches gained
a 9 percent increase, up from 7.41 percent and 7.82
percent last year, respectively. Assistant highschool
football coaches will get a 7 percent increase, up
from 6.17 percent last year, and high school band
directors will get a 6 percent increase.


The addition to the contract also calls for the
School Board to assume the cost of any insurance
increases for the 2006-2007 school year.
The Board also debated the continuation of a
program that relies on school district personnel tc
teach adults with disabilities who are housed ai
Florida State Hospital in Chattahoochee; they vote
to defer action on the superintendent's
recommendation to provide partial funding
$14,600 to the program, which is largely paid for
through state and federal grants.
Simmons said several school district employees
have expressed dissatisfaction with working
conditions at the hospital.
"If we're going to pay for a program and staff the
program, we ought to have satisfactory working
conditions," he said.
James said the classroom setting at the hospital is
different than school district classrooms.
"They put some emphasis on things we don't pul
on in our system. I think they call it 'role-
recovery,'" he said.
Role recovery is a therapeutic approach tc
psychiatric rehabilitation that uses a
multidisciplinary team to try to improve
independence and functional capabilities among
psychiatric patients.
Board Chairman Roger Milton said he thinks
school board money should go to students within
the public school system.
"We have non-incarcerated students that are very,
very important, and we've got to look at ways tc
fund them," he said.


See SCHOOL BOARD on page 9


The Board of County
Commissioners passed a $37.6
million budget Tuesday night
during the first public hearing on
the 2006-2007 budget. The board
also set the millage rate at 10
mills.
But it wasn't a unanimous vote
on either. Commissioners Eugene
Lamb and Sterling Watson voted
against both issues.
While the meeting was set for
the public to voice their opinions
on the budget, no one came
forward.
One man, John Steward, who
moved here two years ago from
Orlando, said he was not satisfied
with his property assessment and
taxes. Commission Chairman Ed
Dixon directed him to the
Property Appraiser's Office.
Later in the meeting, when it
was learned that the county,
received an additional 15 percent
or $1.5 million from the state,;
Watson said the commissioners&
Could roll back the millage rate--
and give property owners some
tax relief.
r "You could easily lower the
rate. To keep it (the money) from
the citizens isn't fair," Watson
Y said, adding that people could use
the roll back to offset property
taxes and insurance.
Dixon reminded Watson that
insurance was up statewide. "I'm
s also sure that you are aware that
we haven't rolled back in the past
because we couldn't. That's the
wonderful reason to have smart
people around you who can
forecast," he said.
Dixon said that when he talks to
Sheriff Morris Young, he talks
about paying corrections officers
more than $19,000 a year. "He
talks about what he will pay his
employees, not a jail," Dixon
said.
Davin Suggs, the budget
director, said he would not
recommend a roll back at this

2 The Gadsden County Times September 7,2006

Photographer plans to bring 'loveliness of the

south' to pages of new book of Gadsden Co.


By Alice DuPont
Times Editor
What if someone decided to docu-
ment the lives of people in Gadsden
::County?
* What if someone took beautiful
'pictures of all the places we see and
love and take for granted daily?
* What if the photographs and words
'of locals were all captured in one
,magnificent book for all to read and
'see?
That's about to happen and the man
to pull it all together is photographer
James Perry Walker. He plans to scour
?the county for pictures that depicts
'what he called the "loveliness of the
south" in Gadsden County. He will
also tap residents to talk about the rich
History of Gadsden County and how
they experienced it.
Bom in Salem, MA, he spent most
;of his life in rural Mississippi with his
parents and eight siblings. He shares
his time now between Memphis, TN
'and New York City. Walker remains
'true to his southern roots.
"I love the south and I've never
;considered leaving the south. To me


it's the most exotic and interesting
places in the world," he said. Walker,
who prefers to be called by his middle
name Perry, said wanted to become a
writer but found the career of a writer
to be hard and lonely. One day while
rummaging around his grandmother's
attic he stumbled on a camera. "It was
a Contax with four lenses. I still use a
Contax," he said.
"Photography was more fun and
you got to meet people and it was
more social than writing. When I first
started taking pictures, I used it to
meet girls. What else does a 19-year-
old boy want to do? It was a great
way to meet girls in college. They
were such willing subjects," he said.
His first book was released this
spring by the University Press of
Mississippi. The book, called "The
Reverend", chronicles the life of a
black preacher in Mississippi named
Rev. Louis Cole. For six years, until
the time of his death in 1981, Perry
shadowed the circuit preacher taking
photos of the members of the congre-
gations he shepherded and the roads
he travelled.


"The Reverend" depicts the life
and death of an African-American
minister who spread the Gospel and
inspired his congregations in west
Tennessee and north Mississippi.
Walker fuses his own impressions and
the reverend's stories and sermons
with intimate photographs to reveal
the spiritual depth of one man and the
extraordinary impact he had on his
flocks. In the process, Walker allows
the viewer to commune with private
African-American culture," wrote Will
Campbell in the forward of the book.
Walker met Cole while teaching Head
Start in rural Mississippi. "One night I
went to'a revival at a black church
where he was preaching. I liked hi
and told him Iwanted to pho-
tograph him and his church. He said
he would have to ask the congregation
for.permission. He was a wonderful
preacher and it took me more than
five years." Cole's son and grandchil-
dren have received the book warmly.
In Gadsden County, Walker said he
wants to capture the beauty of the
place and the people. He is counting
on locals to help him by suggesting


places he might want to see and peo-
ple he might want to talk with. "I'm
not sure yet which direction I will ,
take, for the next few weeks I
will be riding the county,"

Taking notice of invisible illnesses


A friend that I had not seen in several months,
maybe a year, came over from Tallahassee to have
lunch with me Monday afternoon. A few minutes
after she arrived she asked me, what I thought was,
a curious question. She asked if (Quincy's) City
Hall had been moved.
I asked her why and she said that the building
looked like it was closed because the grass was very
high. Her actual word was "abandoned".
I was angry at first because I think that we often
get a bad rap from our neighbors to the east. More
than one mean thing has come out of Leon County
about us. I finally said something like the grass is
growing so fast because the afternoon showers and
summer heat have combined to make the grass grow
so fast we can't keep up with it.
After she left I decided to drive by City Hall to
see for myself. Sure enough, it looked just like she
said. The grass was too high, there were bald spots
in places and it just didn't look fresh and clean. To
me it didn't look like it was "abandoned" but then I
know better.
Tuesday was a different story. The lawn had been
mowed but that's about it. The debris from the lawn
mower was still on the sidewalk, front and rear, and
nothing had been edged or swept. The person on the
lawnmower must have just decided that the big
orange sign was too much trouble move so they
simply mowed around it, leaving the tall grass
underneath. Maybe tomorrow they will finish up the
job.
The hedges are a story in themselves. My
suggestion is to keep them trimmed and pull the
plants that have voluntarily popped up in the middle
of some of them or pull them up altogether. The city
is almost surrounded with nurseries that grow
thousands of ornamental plants annually. I'm sure
somebody would be happy to advise on the kind of
plants that will thrive in this climate and look pretty
as well.
I decided not to stop at city hall and drove around
town. I was greeted with the same. In some spots on

East Jefferson Street in downtown Quincy
Tuesday afternoon. Weeds are choking trees.

East Jeffesron Street, the weeds will shortly choke
the trees to death if they aren't pulled up.
The city has an aggressive program now to clean
up. Citizens are asked to clean up around their
homes if the yard is unsightly. If citizens are asked
to clean up, the. city ought to take the lead.
I can't think of a single reason why city hall
shouldn't be kept up at all times. The fact is, it
ought to be a showplace. The building isn't the
prettiest, but at least the lawn could stand out.
Maybe a retired landscaper or someone who likes
to plant will give a few suggestions on what can be
planted in the space.
If I wanted to open a business in a small town, this
weekend Quincy would not be attractive to me.

You can take this to the bank!


Fall and the football games sure seem to
have gotten upon us quicker than usual this
year. Of course, it didn't sneak up on us-
ESPN has been showing clips of Terrell
Owens not practicing, Brett Farve
interviews defending his not retiring and
close ups of Bill Cowher not smiling for
weeks now. And, just so we won't forget,
they keep dropping little subtle (like atomic
bombs) hints that "Monday Night
Football" has moved to their network.
Shoot, I've never been one not to jump on
the bandwagon. I thought I would use my
"enlightened" and "inside information" to
give you some insightful and highly
accurate predictions for the upcoming
football season..
First off, I think some over zealous
Volunteer fan from Lenoir City,
Tennessee, will shave his head and have
his whole upper body painted over with
that ridiculous orange and white checker
board look that adorns either end of,
Neyland Stadium...... Oh, wait a minute,
too late for that prediction-one hundred and
nine thousand folks have already done it!
I predict before this season gets three
weeks old East Prairie View State will kick
a field goal in the waning seconds to beat
Montclair University by a single point. The
entire team and student body for State will
immediately throw up one finger and began
the obligatory "We're number one" chant. I
will chuckle and surmise, "let them beat
Georgia, Florida, USC, Ohio State, Auburn
and Texas on successive weekends and
then we'll all fly out to East Prairie and
hold up one finger with them."
I predict an "expert analyst" will be on
the air shortly explaining to us why the
BCS is not giving Syracuse University a
fair shot at the national championship. The
same commentator will explain that with
three "deserving" teams in the national
championship picture it's a shame only two
can play for the title. He will espouse a
system of playoff games so no one is left
out.
I won't disagree with him. Back home
out in the front yard we played until there
was only one guy left standing. Everybody
played everybody. There wasift no doubt
who our winner was! We could argue bad
calls, complain about the blindsides,
whether the runner stepped out of bounds
(it was a pretty tough call as the side lines
were defined by far away trees and fence


posts), dispute first downs and squabble
over ineligible receivers down field. But
the winner was quite easily picked out. He
was the guy with no broken bones, most of
his teeth and the blood running down his
shirt was not his own!
Of course, our football year lasted until
the first pitch of the baseball season in
April. I reckon if the colleges and pros
wanted to play on till Easter, they could
really come up with. one "consensus"
winner too!
I predict this might possibly be the season
someone explains to us what all the women
"sportscasters" are doing on the sidelines
of every football game with a microphone!
It's an epidemic!
I predict on the professional side
someone will recount the 1958 football title
game between the Baltimore Colts and the
New York Giants that "defined the modern
era of pro football." And some one will
. compare a hard nose player to Bronko
Nagurski. And if a big upset looms on the
horizon, it will quickly be compared to
Super Bowl III when Joe Willie Namath
led the Jets over the highly favored Colts.

I predict before this season is over, in a
post game interview, a coach will glare at a
reporter who asked why he didn't kick the
tying field goal instead of going for the
game winning T. D. The coach will pause,
angered that the pencil neck reporter might
just possibly be right, and decry about the
hours of watching game film and they had
set up "S Y 48 all out, Z up" with the last
two plays. "We had the game where we
wanted it. We just failed to execute."
I predict some ACC fan will make fun of
the SEC. And vice versa!
I predict that we will have a televised
game finish in under three hours. Hey, I'm
just kidding here! We'd have a better
chance of getting those women reporters
off the sidelines.....
In various pre game interviews from
UTEP to Slippery Rock I predict a coach
will say, in no particular order, "It will
come down to the special teams." "This
game will be won up front in the trenches."
"Depth will be a problem; we're going to
have to play through some injuries." "He
(the undersized outside linebacker) is a
gamer." "We must eliminate the mental

They're called invisible illnesses chronic
illnesses that affect one's overall health and
stamina but not necessarily their appearance.
Monday kicks off National Invisible Chronic
Illness Awareness Week. Chronic illnesses
include everything from Crohn's disease to
cancer; here are a few facts about chronic illness
from the National Chronic Illness Care
Consortium:
* People with chronic conditions, such as heart
disease, lung disease, asthma, arthritis and
Alzheimer's disease account for more than 77
percent of all healthcare expenditures.
* The divorce rate among the chronically ill is
over 75 percent.
* Depression is 15-20 percent higher for the
chronically ill than for the average person.
Various studies have reported that physical
illness or uncontrollable physical pain are major
factors in up to 70 percent of suicides.
Nearly one in four workers between the ages
of 25 and 55 is absent from work one day a week
due to a chronic condition.
Over 9 million people with chronic conditions
are uninsured.
Sixty-five percent of Medicare beneficiaries
65 and older have two or more chronic
conditions and account for 95 percent of all
Medicare expenditures.
Several years ago, Lou Harris conducted a
national survey for Partnership for Solutions, a
national project on chronic care sponsored by
The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.
Survey results showed that people with chronic
conditions have great difficulty obtaining the
healthcare they need and want. Eighteen percent
of those with chronic conditions reported that

Hats off to

County

Commissioners!

In early March, and again in July, my
Mother and I attended a Commission
Meeting where we, along with other
citizens were allowed to address the
Commission on the family land issue. It
seemed to us that the Growth Management
Director, Bill McCord viewed our request
to build on family property as a violation of
regulations, when the land was purchased
long before the regulation was made.
Comm. Lamb of District 1 spoke very
eloquently in favor of helping the people of
Gadsden County who were concerned with
this issue. Chairman Ed Dixon of District 5
suggested that we treat this in a way that
would help Gadsden County, not just
mirror another county close by.
I appreciate the support of these
Commissioners and hope that the families
concerned with these issues will be able to
use their land the way they intended to
when it was originally purchased, in some
cases many years ago.

Inmate work

squads contribute

to parks

Dear Editor:
From 1993 to 2003 I served as inmate
Work Squad Program Coordinator at the
Quincy Correctional Institute, State of
Florida Department of Corrections.
During this time period we had up to 10
inmate crews and supervisors working with
the county and the City of Quincy. One of
those crews was primarily assigned to the
parks in the county, under the capable
direction of Oliver Sellers. The parks were
cleaned and mowed in a timely manner.
The playground equipment and buildings
(damaged due to vandalism) were also
repaired and maintained, as funds would
allow.
You were right in that people would not
keep the parks up. They allowed unruly
children to destroy them. However, in some


they received contradictory medical information
in the last year. Fifty-six percent said they did not
receive adequate medical care. Seventy-nine
percent reported that it is somewhat or very
difficult to obtain adequate insurance.
Ninety-five percent of all physicians said
coordination of care is a serious problem.
Think insurance is the answer? Think again.
Recent U.S. Census Bureau figures indicate an
estimated 46.6 million Americans were
uninsured in 2005, which represents 15.9 percent
of the population. In the South, the uninsured rate
increased from 18.2 percent to 18.6 percent
between 2004 and 2005 that's 19.8 million
people. Meanwhile, the poverty rate remained the
same 14 percent in the South, compared to 12.6
percent nationwide. And between 2004 and
2005, people covered by employment-based
health insurance declined from 59.8 percent to
59.5 percent. But even with insurance, the cost of
copays for the multiple medications and doctor's
office visits required by those.with chronic
illnesses can be exorbitant.
That's a lot of numbers and a lot of people,
making it likely that you know or are related to
someone with a chronic illness. Here are a few
ways to offer them encouragement:
Remember important anniversaries, both the
good and the bad. No one else will.
Ask whether he or she would like company
while waiting for test results.
Don't make him or her feel guilty about the
things he or she can't do.
Ask whether there's an errand you can run.
Ask what the person wishes others understood
about the illness.


cases, it is not only the children who do'the
damage. It is "the adults" who, as a general
rule, used their cars and trucks to knock
over the fences, run over playground
equipment and even damage buildings.
They dump their garbage, beer bottles and
other debris in the parks.
You stated that the state does not
contribute to the upkeep of the parks. I
disagree. I feel than an inmate crew of 10
men, a supervisor and a van for
transportation is a very big contribution to
the county for the upOkeep of the -parks.
Although I retired in 2003 I still see the
inmate crews working the county parks.
Sincerely,
Sgt. James B. Hall

Corvette and

Lincoln buggies

Dear Editor,
On Piggly Wiggly's opening night I had
to run to town for one item. I live just west
of Gretna in God's Country (deer love it;
we don't hunt), and as I approached Piggly
Wiggly I noticed all the cars, so I pulled in.
Nice store!
My wife, Margaret Lawson, died in
February and left me her Corvette
convertible "The Silver Bullet" that has the
speed, and my old Lincoln has the comfort.
The Piggly Wiggly buggies (shopping carts)
have both. According to my printout, I got
16 items instead of the one I went for, and
that was in a matter of minutes. The buggy
took the corners like the Corvette, and on a
few aisles that no one was on I turned it
loose, then browsed with a smooth ride on
some.
Who's to say that God furnished the
power and I steered or vice versa. Those
things don't really matter as long as God
was along for the ride.
By the way, He was.
Enjoyed the experience!
Sorry I don't have e-mail, I'm still a
buggy man.
Love,
W. Alexander "Cuz Frank" Johnson

Nancy Daniels discuss shortage of office space at county's Public Safety Council meeting. (Photo

Space is at a premium for


county's crowded judiciary


By ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

Space for county offices is at a premium.
Another courtroom is needed to expedite hearings
and help relieve jail overcrowding. But in order to
get another courtroom, the public defender's
office has to move to make way for renovating the
upper level of the Race Courthouse Annex. There
is little space available in downtown and what
there is isn't as large as the space the public
defender's office currently occupies.
"There's no place left to go. Believe me, we
have tried (to find suitable space). We have looked
at every possible scenario," County Commission
Chairman Ed Dixon told Nancy Daniels, public
defender.
Daniels was unhappy when Dixon said she
would have to move her office from the present
location, the second floor of the Guy Race
Courthouse Annex on North Adams Street, to an
even smaller space temporarily.
"Buildings don't exist (for rent or purchase) in
Gadsden County to that tune. The buildings we
have looked at either we can't afford them or
they're dilapidated. In other cases parking is a
problem," Dixon said.
"The space we have now is inadequate (for
public defender offices). We just have to have a
better solution," Daniels-said.
"We.sat on this thing for many years, (creating
another courtroom) and unfair or not we have to
do it," Dixon said.
Another courtroom would mean additional
space for another judge. Another judge would
mean that more cases could be cleared and relieve
some of the overcrowding at the county jail. A
large number of the incarcerated are there await-
ing trial.. -. : .. I: -, 1. 1
Many of those in jail cannot .be released.
Violent criminals await trial, as do those who have
violated their probation. Still others are waiting to
be transported to the Department of Corrections.


The assistant state attorney said if the county
had a bigger jail some of those found guilty could
be sentenced to 11 months 29 days (the cutoff
before going to the DOC) and be kept at home.
Gadsden County has a current rate of 4.23
inmates in jail per 1,000 residents. "That's not out
of line with the rest of the state," said Chief
Circuit Judge Charles A. Francis.
While everyone agreed that the ideal situation
would have the public defender's office to have as
much space as needed, Dixon said it won't happen
soon. "There is going to have to be some give and
take here. This is not a perfect situation, I wish it
were, but it's the best we can do right now," he
said after the meeting.
The council has been looking for ways to ease
jail overcrowding and has made some improve-
ments since it last met on November 7, 2005.
"We've gotten video to visit clients and hold
hearings," said Daniels. Apparently most mem-
bers of the council thought the video system that
allows judges to electronically hold first appear-
ances was working in Gadsden and Leon counties.
Judge Stu Parsons informed the council that the
video system (for first appearances) in Gadsden
County has not worked since January.
"I need somebody to tell me what's going to
happen. It's nice to sit here and wax eloquent
about what's happening in Leon County, but it
seems to be a rift when it comes to Gadsden
County," Dixon said.
Parsons also suggested that the county needs an
information system that would enable the jail,
Clerk of Courts, Department of Corrections, State
Attorney, and Public Defender to access the same
information.
"What are the chances of getting some money
for a system like that in Gadsden County?" Dixon
asked Judge Francis. Francis replied that the coun-
ty would have to contact the."right vendors".
He said Leon County has a system and it was-
n't "too expensive". He said he would forward the
necessary information to the county.

Staggering blow leads to legacy


Cindi Evans establishes local scholarship in memory of her son


by Leslie Roberts
Times News Editor

Cindi Evans wants Gadsden
County students to know they
can achieve even in the worst of
circumstances.
She knows a bit about that.
When her son, Tarwin "Tiga"
Knight was killed in a car crash
April 19, 2003, she didn't feel
like she could finish the day,
much less the college degree
she'd started working on earlier
that year.
Having lost a husband, Tiga's
39-year-old father Ralph
Knight, to a car crash in 1990
her son's death dealt Evans a
staggering blow.
"I just relied on God," she
said. "I had lots of prayer, lots of
family support, and with that
combined with support from the
school of nursing, I graduated
on time."
A Gadsden County native,
Evans earned a master's degree
in nursing from Florida A&M
University and is now a nurse
practitioner. She went back to
FAMU to earn a post-master
degree in women's health, and
now works as director of nurs-
ing for Bond Community Health
Center in Tallahassee.
Last year, she decided to give
a scholarship,in memory of her
son to a FAMU nursing student.
But the student selected for the
award was from South Florida,
and Evans realized she wanted
the memorial to have an impact
closer to home.
"I wanted more of a local
effect for Gadsden County. The
scholarship is for nursing, and it
will hopefully do two things:
Remind young people of the
importance of wearing seatbelts
and encourage them to continue
in the nursing program," she
said. "I also want young people
to know that being from
GadsdenCounty doesn't mean
they can't achieve."
.The Tarwin "Tiga" Knight
Memorial Scholarship Award is
for students who demonstrate a
high level of academic achieve-
ment and a strong desire to pur-
sue a career in the field of nurs-
ing. Financial need is not a
requirement. For the current


award cycle, only high school
seniors graduating in May 2007
who have applied to a school of
nursing at FAMU, Florida Sate
University or Tallahassee
Community College are eligi-
ble. The student and his or her
family must be Gadsden County
residents.
Application deadline is May
1, and all materials must be
postmarked by then or hand-
delivered to the appropriate
guidance counselor office.
Knight will give two scholar-
ships of $500 each, one to East
Gadsden High School and one
to West Gadsden High School.
Recipients' names will be
engraved on a memorial plaque
that is currently housed at
FAMU School of Nursing.,
Evans says her son, who was
24 when he died, was a "caring,
very loving, very affectionate"
individual.
He graduated from James A.
Shanks High School in 1997,
and often gave his mother cards
or flowers in acknowledgement


Cindi Evans with her sons.
for all she'd done. As a single
parent of four boys, three of
whom still live in Gadsden
County, Evans appreciated the
gesture.
"He was well-loved. In
February, before the wreck, I
threw him a big birthday party
with family and friends we
looked at old pictures, laughed -
he had joined the Masonic
Lodge and he had a fiancee,"
Evans -said. "The night I was
inducted into Sigma Theta Tau
(a nursing honor society) was
the last time we had our picture
taken together. He brought me
red roses and gave me two
cards, congratulating me for
accomplishing my goals and
thanking me for everything I'd
done for him. Which, looking
back, was really like a good-
bye."

Anchor Club at RFM kicks off year

The Anchor Club at Robert F. Mumnroe Day School has begun the
new school year with plans for several projects within the commu-
nity.
Its lead off started last week with the "Don't Be A Dum-Dum"
campaign for safe driving and seatbelt safety over the Labor Day
holiday. Each exiting car student received a Dum-Dum sucker as a
reminder of the importance of the seatbelt.
The officers for the 2006-2007 year ar: Co-Presidents Ashton
Fallis and Sarah Powell; President-Elect Kaitlyn Rentz; Secretary
Kaitlyn Cote'; Treasurer Julia Bates; Historians Meagan Morgan
and Brittany Benedetto.
The board members for each grade level are: Ninth Grade,
Rachel Jones; Tenth
Grade, Courtney Wilder; Eleventl, Anna Jo Bristol; Twelfth,
Mallary Taylor.
The club boasted of having the state president last year as Ammie
Fletcher led the organization, and this year they have two state offi-
cers. Meg Summerford is the parliamentarian and Ashton Fallis is
the district director.
Initiation of new members will begin this week.


Midway


Continued from Page 1
Council meeting at 7 p.m.
The raise from $23.07 per
hour to $50 per hour caused a
public outcry after it was
approved Morris began working
for the city on a contractual basis
in January.
The proposal calls for Morris to
become certified as a building
official within the next six
months and to maintain all
required certifications to perform,
the duties of his job. This would
include ensuring new
construction is in compliance
with, the. city's comprehensive
plan, meeting with residents,
contractors, owners and
developers on various projects in
the city, acting as a liaison
between the city and the
Department of Community
Affairs and other state agencies.
He will also perform site plan
reviews in conjunction with the
city's contractual building
official, who is paid $100 per
hour by the city, until Morris gets
a building official certificate.
A memo on the proposal says
the city is "desirous of continuing
the business relationship with
Roosevelt Morris, who provides
community services, planning
and zoning, environmental
inspections, building inspections
and codes inspections for the
city" and asserts that Morris is
"qualified, willing and able" to
perform those services.
Council members voted
unanimously in July to boost
Morris' pay despite learning that
several of his certifications had
expired. Florida, Department of
Business and Professional
Regulation records indicate
applications Morris filed for
building code administrator and
-;1 standard plans examiner licensure
are still pending.
According to a report from the.
Midway Growth Management
Department, it issued 154
residential permits during the
month of August and 15
commercial permits. It conducted
673 inspections and received 16
complaints about problems with
driveways, septic tanks, drainage
and animal control. There were
also five requests to check
buildings. Eight of the
complaints have been resolved.
In new business, council
members are slated to consider
adoption of an ordinance that
would start the process for the
voluntary annexation of roughly
285 acres into the city. The land,
owned by Lex Thompson, James
Thompson and Thomas Larson,
is north of the 10/90 Commerce
Park and will be accessed
through that park. It's anticipated
the land will eventually be
designated as interchange
commercial.
The ordinance is set for a
second reading Oct. 5.
Other items on the agenda
include:
A reconsideration of a
preliminary plat for Taylor Ridge.
A draft proposal to establish a
partnership between the Gadsden
County School Board, the City of
Midway and the Lamb
Foundation to establish a tutorial
program for children at the
Eugene Lamb Jr. Recreation


Center.
* Second reading and public
hearing of an ordinance
amending the 2005-2006 budget.
* Consider a request from
McClellan Investments in regard
to Midway Forest Town Homes.
* Consideration of an ordinance
authorizing application
submission for a state grant to

Panthers fall to



Blountstown


By Larry Edwards
The West Gadsden Panthers
faced their second state ranked
team for two straight weeks in
the Blountstown Tigers.
Although the Panthers held their
own in the first half, they fell
27-3.
Head coach Robert Jackson
stated, "It was a game of halves.
We won the first half, but they
won the second."
West Gadsden moved the


ball on the Tigers, but just
couldn't punch it in. They were
inside the 10-yard line twice in
the first half. The Panthers only
points came on Jose Calderon's
37-yard field goal.
Ron Bums provided 74 yards
on 20 carries to lead the offense.
Summing up the loss,
Jackson said, "We were proba-
bly our own worst enemy."
The Panthers have an open
date this week.

Late score lifts Jaguars over



FAMU 12-6; Ft. Walton next


By Susie Morris
Like Bob Barker on the Price
of Right, the Munroe Bobcat
football team on Friday night
tried time and again to give the
game away. Fortunately for first
year coach, Adam Reep, his
Bobcats got selfish late in the
fourth quarter, They scored the
game-winning touchdown and
extra point with less than five
minutes to play and held
Panama City Christian on their
final drive for a nailbiting 27-26
win.
Actually, the Bobcats jumped
out to a quick 20-0 lead halfway
through the second quarter and
looked to be on their way to an
easy victory. Dontavius


Johnson, a junior running back,
got the Cats on the scoreboard
early with a 39 yard run around
the left end. William Hackney
followed up with an extra point.
On the next Munroe possession,
junior Bryant Tolar scampered
up the middle for a six yard
touchdown and again, Hackney,
kicked the extra point for a 14-0
first quarter lead.
The second quarter began
resembling the first. Dontavius
Johnson scored his second
touchdown on a 50 yard run.
Hackney's kick was blocked.
The next two touchdowns were

back connected on several per-

Lady Cats split; WGHS just



wants to play with full roster


By Susie Morris
The Munroe Lady Cats volleyball team split
last week, losing a key Class A District 3 match to
John Paul II on Tuesday but then defeating Class
4A Rickards High School on Thursday.
A seemingly uninspired and error prone Lady
Cats team passed poorly, blocked little and gave
up leads in all three games against rival JPII.
John Paul won 25-22, 25-27, 25-22 including ral-
lying in the third game from a 20-15 disadvantage
to remain undefeated in district play.
Crystal Wade had five service points and four
digs. Julia Bates led with 10 digs and five blocks
and Malorie McKinnon helped on defense with
six digs. Ivie Thomas had ten assists, Spenser
Morris had five digs and three aces and Jill Purvis
added three blocks.
On Thursday, the Lady Cats turned it around as
they passed better, set better, and showed more
enthusiasm to upend Rickards High School in
three straight games (25-15, 25-19, 25-17).
Ivie Thomas set up 13 assists for her team-


mates. Four was the lucky number as Spenser
Morris finished with four kills, Jill Purvis added
four blocks and Crystal Wade served up four aces.
Morris added three aces to round out the key stats
for the Lady Cats.
The team dropped to 3-6 overall and 0-1 in dis-
trict play. They take on Maclay in Tallahassee on
* Wednesday and host Apalachicola on Thursday in
a district contest. All game times are 6:00.
The West Gadsden volleyball team is looking
forward to finally playing with a full roster.
Problems with athletes securing physical has left
first year coach Karen Chapman without a com-
plete team.
As such they stand 0-4 with losses to some
tough opponents in Godby, Rickards, Cottondale
and Blountstown.
Standing out for the Panthers thus far is
Candace Walker. The senior is providing key
leadership and her all around fine play is inspir-
ing. The team will continue to work on funda-
mentals as they work towards a win.

fectly throw pass plays. One
of these touchdowns was, set up
by a Munroe fumble deep in
Crusader territory.
It was in the second half that
the Bobcats most resembled The
Price is Right. The Bobcats
could not get on the scoreboard
in the third quarter but the
Crusaders did. Cody Watson
fumbled a short punt by PCC
and the Bobcats turned the ball
over on what should have been
great field position for Munroe.
PCC then connected again on a
long pass play scoring their third
touchdown. The two point con-
version was good tying the
game at 20 going into the final
quarter.
On 4th and 10 at midfield,
the Bobcats punter, Hackney,
was roughed giving the Bobcats
a huge 1st down and great field
position. However, a late hit
after the punt followed by with
an unsportsmanlike penalty took
away the, Bobcats field position
and the.Bobats turned :he ball
over on downs. Panama Cityni
then scored Q0 ,a long pass play,
to go ahead for the first time 26-
20. Fortunately for the Bobcats
the two point conversion
attempt failed. The Bobcats
then used their next possession
to march down the field and
score on a 3 yard run by
Johnson, his third rushing
touchdown of the night. With
the score knotted at 26 all,
Hackney then kicked the go-
ahead extra point. The Bobcats
were then forced to hold the


Crusaders with
remaining.


four minutes


Johnson finished the game
with 254 yards of offense. He
also led the Bobcats on defense
with seven tackles including
five solos. Bryant Tolar, Chris
McDonald and Todd Rowan
each had five tackles. Jason
Cook, Anthony Hamm and
Hackney combined for thirteen
pancake blocks. Cody Watson
had one interception and Walker
Cox a sack.
"We came out strong and
jumped on them early," said an
elated Coach Reep after the
game. About getting his first
win of his inaugural coaching
career Reep followed .with,
"Well it felt a lot better than los-
ing. I am still on a high."
The win moved the Bobcats
to 1-1 overall' and 1-0 in the
Panhandle Football Conference.
The Bobcats travel to Carrabelle
Friday night for another confer-
ence game. Carrabelle will be
playing their first game of the
season since their opening game
was cancelled when
Apalachicola withdrew from the
2006 season.




Continued from Page 10
Six plays later FAMU tied the
game at 6 with a Richard
Watson 2-yard run.
The fourth quarter saw East
Gadsden drive deep into FAMU
territory twice to come away
with no points. Outstanding
defense by the Jaguars kept
FAMU deep in their own territo-
ry.
The Jaguars marched 64


yards on the winning drive with
less than four minutes to go in
the game. The drive started with
a 24-yard one-handed comple-
tion by Lance Ray. The Jaguars
also converted a fourth-and-one
at the 32-yard line to keep- the
drive alive.
Brown, who finished with 92
yards rushing and 76 passing,
scored the game winner from
five yards out. The Jaguar
defense held on in the final sec-
onds by sacking the FAMU
quarterback three times.
East Gadsden takes on Class
4A Fort Walton Beach (1-1) on
Friday night at Fort Walton at
8:30 pm EST. ,

Farmers explore, options to standard crops


by Leslie Roberts
Times News Editor
It takes a different breed to enter an alternative
farming enterprise.
It can be a profitable endeavor, though, and
impact on local economies in rural areas is one
reason the University of Florida's Institute of
Food and Agriculture Sciences and the Florida A&
M University's Cooperative Extension office co-
sponsored an alternative farm enterprise confer-
ence Aug. 26.
"Marketing is a big push. If they can't sell it,
why grow it or feed it?" said Linda Landrum,
regional UF/IFAS specialist agent in marketing
alternative crops and community resources.
"We're hoping to help small farmers in this region
identify where to sell their crops, who buys them
and other marketing strategies that will help them
be successful."
Around 40 attended the Saturday conference at
the North Florida Research and Education Center
in Quincy. They were able to choose from a vari-
ety of seminar topics, including market options,
alternative land uses/recreation, aquaculture, beef
production, forage and hay production, vegetable
and organic production, goat production, fruit pro-
duction and growing wildflowers and ornamen-
tals.
Other successful alternative farming options
include farmers' markets, U-pick farms and ag
tourism, which encompasses everything from corn
mazes to pumpkin patches.
"We call these alternative crops because
They're very different than the traditional crops
Like peanuts and tobacco," Landrum said. "It does
take a different sort of person to do alternative
crops there are a lot of people skills involved as
the product is often directly marketed to the con-
sumer."
Quincy resident Harry Jackson who, like many
alternative crop farmers works a full-time job in
addition to farming, attended the conference to


Havana Elementary

hosts open house

More than 150 parents attended an open
house at Havana Elementary School Aug. 30.
Principal Elizabeth E. Turner began the pro-
gram by introducing the staff.
Assistant Principal of Curriculum Allysun
Davis gave an overview of the curriculum as
well as other pertinent information. Because
HES is implementing a new school-wide disci-
pline plan Ronald Peterson, assistant principal of
discipline, made parents aware of the new proce-
dures:
The HES mass choir under the direction of
Tia Nia entertained parents.
The newly-elected PTA president, Trina
kichardson, gave words of encouragement to
parents and invited them to become active mem-
bers of the PTA. Parents also had the opportuni-
ty to visit their children's classrooms.
Any parent of an HES student may call the
school at 539-2877 with any concern.


for the conference, Landrum said, given its agri-
cultural history.
"Historically, Gadsden County has always been
a very agriculturally-minded county," Landrum
said.
Local FAMU Cooperative Extension horticul-
ture and small farms agent Alex Bolques coordi-
nated the event. He said he was pleased with
turnout and has hopes the conference will become
an annual event, although that's up to a committee
comprised of faculty members and extension
agents.

learn more about goat production.
He's farmed Boer/Spanish goat crosses since
1989, and says he enjoys the opportunity to learn
more about the venture.
"There's always some new information," he
said. "There's a good market for (goat meat), and
it's low in cholesterol."
Gadsden County seemed like a logical location

"I read through the evaluations quite a few
said the conference exceeded their expectations.
That's a good indication the information was well-
received," he said. "This was an effort by both
universities to address small farm issues and also
to get information out, both to existing farmers
and to those new to farming. I think it went very
well here."

place of eternal peace.
Retha returned to
Washington, DC., 16 months
ago because of failing health to
be closer to her family.
Nana's m6ve back to her
hometown, over 30 years ago,
was to care for her aging par-
ents. Once she returned to
Quincy she made a definite
impact in the community. Retha
taught school at Carter
Parramore High School for
many years and later transi-
tioned to providing day care for
many of the children in Quincy.
Her love and concern for chil-
dren was evident everywhere
she went.
Nana, as everyone called her,
was a faithful, and especially
loved member of First Elizabeth
Missionary Baptist Church. She
was the church Mother for many
years and served as a faithful
servant for her lord and savior
Jesus Christ.
Nana leaves behind a daugh-
ter, Sandra and husband Wilson
Monk, Jr. of Washington, DC;
one granddaughter, Danielle and
husband Delon Turner and one
great-granddaughter, Doninique
of Columbia, MD; one sister,
Ethel Price Williams of Lake
Wales; five brothers, Johnnie
Price and wife Fadine of
TakomawPark, MD, David Price
and wife Flossie of Pemberton,
NJ, Timothy and wife Bill of
Bridgeport, CT, Albert and wife
Betty of Seat Pleasant, MD and
Ellis Price of Adelphi, MD, and
many other relatives and friends.
A memorial service will be
held on Friday, Sept. 9, at First
Elizabeth Missionary Baptist at
6 p.m. Mrs. Price was a life-long
member of our community and
our church family. Her presence
will truly be missed but God
reached down in his garden and
plucked one of the fairest flow-
ers of them all. The church is
located at 1030 Martin Luther
King Jr. Blvd. where Rev.

The shop is dark and the tools are silent. The fields
lie barren without you here. We no longer hear the
stories from the past about family and friends and
the way things used to be. Your advice is missed,
along with your sense of humor and your opinions.

It has been a year since you left us to go home with
the Lord. It has been lonesome and hard for the
ones you left behind, but the strength and love you
instilled within us has and will continue to get us
through. We know you are with us each day and
that you walk with us and will until the day we go
to meet you. Thanks Daddy, for everything you've
done that we never thanked you for. We love you
and miss you and know when our time to go home
comes, you will be there with your arms open wide
with that devilish grin on your face.

Love always, Your Family

I New York City is located in the state of New York, in the Northeastern United States. Often referred to as the Big Apple, the city boasts one of the most
unique and diverse cultures in the modern world. Millions of people vacation in the city each year, in addition to the population of more than eight million
people It is nome to many monuments and landmarks, as well being an international hub for major government and business activities. The United Nations
Headquarters and WNall Street are located in New Yorl City for this very reason. It is often said that the world s economy revolves around the cili.
The Big Apple is officially called the City of New York and was discovered in 1609 by the English voyager, Henry Hudson. Though Hudson was an E nglsh-
man, he was an employee of the Dutch East India Trading Company, and therefore.the area that was discovered, which is now Manhattan, became the
Dutch city of New Amsterdam It was not until 1664 that it was given its current name, New York, by the British inhabitants that took the city from the Dutch.
For three years. 1788 through 1790, New York City was the capital of the brand new Urnited States, until the capital was moved to Washington D.C.

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

Community college students gain free

Pumphrey law firm presents seminars for teens


Life Maintenance


Did you know that you
could be convicted of assault
without ever touching
anyone? Did you know that
you could be convicted of
drug possession even if the
drugs do not belong to you?
Last year Florida State
University's campus police
alone made 866 arrests.
Among those, 105 of the
arrests made were for DUI;
310 were for liquor law
violations; 115 were for drug-
related crimes; and 43 were
for theft. In response to
campus concerns about
criminal activity, local


attorney Don Pumphrey, Jr is
doing his part to raise
awareness not only at FSU
but also at many high schools
and other colleges throughout
the area.
His mission is to educate the
public, and particularly young
people, about what exactly ,
becomes of those who fall
victim to poor judgment and
find themselves charged with
a crime. The consequences
are far-reaching, and the
prices are high. From the
academic, to the financial and
legal penalties for your
transgressions, a mistake
could cost you everything.
Mr. Pumphrey's aim is to

prevent that from happening
and he is bringing his efforts
to Gadsden County by hiring
a full-time attorney to serve
this county alone.
But the message that "crime
does not pay" is not news to
young people. Time and again
they've heard the relentless
warnings of parents, teachers
and coaches cautioning that
the consequences of lapses in
judgment could last a
lifetime. Yet time and again
these warnings seem to have
fallen on deaf ears. But the
failure of the message is not a
result of a lack of concern on
the part of young people; but
rather, a lack of
understanding of how easy it
is to find oneself in a legal
bind.
In an effort to enlighten the
public, Mr. Pumphrey has
partnered with local
newspapers, faculty and staff
at TCC, FAMU and FSU, and
students at the Florida State
College of Law, to blow the
whistle on crimes common
among young people.
Together, they are launching
an expose of the legal
consequences a student might
face if caught driving home
after "just a couple of beers,"
or making a threatening
gesture toward a significant
other.


To that end, Mr. Pumphrey
is presenting life maintenance
seminars, free of charge,
across the community to
educate young people on the
potential legal consequences
of their mistakes. The laws
are only getting tougher
which means that now, more
than ever, lives, educations,
careers, reputations, and
futures are on the line; it takes
community leaders like Don
Pumphrey, Jr to ensure that
those futures are safe.


Students at Florida's
community colleges gained
access today to $3.9 million
in additional electronic
databases, e-journals and
eBooks to assist in learning
and research.
The new resources are
available via LINCCWeb
(www.linccweb.org), the
web-based library
information portal used by
more than 800,000
community college students
statewide. LINCCWeb is
operated by the College
Center for Library
Automation (CCLA), a
program of the state's


Division of Community
Colleges and Workforce
Education.
The Florida Legislature
appropriated funding for the
new resources to be shared by
all community colleges.
Representatives from each
college collaborated to select
resources that meet the
information needs of today's
students.
"Until now, each college
used local funds to license
resources for its students,"
said CCLA Executive
Director J. Richard Madaus.
"Because of that, students at
some colleges had access to


significantly more online
resources than others. This
new statewide approach
guarantees that every student
has convenient access to the
same valuable resources
regardless of college size or
location. LINCCWeb is
available to students 24 hours
a day, whenever and
wherever they need it.
"This is a tremendous leap
forward and a continued
indication of Florida's
support for its community
colleges, their students and
libraries," he added.

GEMS receives 2006 Florida School

Recognition Award from Governor Bush


The Gadsden Elementary Magnet School
received recognition for its outstanding perform-
ance from Governor Jeb Bush.
The. State of Florida is awarding $11,774 to
GEMS for outstanding academic performance
during the 2005-2006 school year. The 2006
Florida School Recognition Program rewards
schools that received an "A" or improved one let-
ter grade from the previous year.
The governor stated that "GEMS successes
demonstrate a commitment to academic achieve-
ment and serve as a model for providing the high
caliber of education all Florida students deserve".


The awarded funds can be used for nonrecurring
bonuses to the school's faculty and staff, nonre-
curring expenditures for educational equipment or
materials, or temporary personnel to assist the
school in maintaining or improving student per-
formance.
With funding provided by the Legislature, the
state calculated awards based on $100 per full-
time equivalent student. Earnirig recognition is a
distinct honor and the faculty and staff along with
administrative staff extends their warmest grati-
tude to their students, parents, community/faith
based partners for this accomplishment.

RFM cheerleaders rally for Powder Puff


On Friday, Oct. 6 the Robert F. Munroe Day
School cheerleaders will hold a big night of events
on the school campus.
The new safety rules for the squad require mats
on the gym floor before they can perform
aerial stunts, and this planned event will help
defray the cost of the newly-purchased mats.
The reinstatement of Powder Puff Football to
the campus after many years was decided in hopes
of drawing a crowd for the evening. Girls in
grades 9 and 11 are the Gray Team and will com-
pete in a 44-minute game against the girls in
grades 10 and 12, who are the Red Team.
Football player Jason Cook is coaching the
Gray Team, and his cousin and Munroe Alum,
Whiddon Macon, is coaching the Red Team.


Kick-off is at 7 p.m., and admission to the game is
$3.
In addition to the Powder Puff game, a bar-
beque dinner and Cow Chip Bingo will be held at
the school. The chicken dinner will be served in
the Student Center from 6 until 8 p.m. for $5 per
plate.
Immediately following the Powder Puff game,
Cow Chip Bingo will be held next to the softball
field. Tickets for a Cow Chip Bingo square are
$50, and the owner of the winning square will
receive $500.
You may purchase dinner and bingo tickets in
advance by contacting any RFM cheerleader or
calling the school.


Munroe Student Council officers


The Robert F. Munroe Day School Student Council officers for the 2006-2007 school year have
recently been elected. President Elizabeth Bridges is the daughter of Janet Bridges and Bill Bridges.
Vice-President Julia Bates is the daughter of Patsy and Mark Bates. Secretary Chelsea Watson is the
daughter of Karen and Sterling Watson. Cara Fullerton, daughter of Chris and Randy Fullerton, is treas-
urer.

Tuskegee Airman film here


A capacity crowd at the William "Bill" McGill
Library on Aug. 21 viewed the Tuskegee Airman
film explaining how African Americans struggled
to become pilots in the United States.
The life history and legacy of the Tuskegee
Airman and others was narrated by Dr. Norman
Jackson, a graduate of Tuskegee University and
dynamic historian.
The crowd consisted of a wide spectrum of age
groups. The film captured the audience's attention
by giving chilling accounts of the struggle to
become pilots as well as actual flying and combat
footage.
Some of the names highlighted in the film
were; Eugene Bullard, first African-American
combat aviator, Bessie Coleman, first African-
American woman pilot who also was honored
with a United States stamp, Hurbert Julian a/k/a


"Black Eagle", first African-American to fly coast
to coast, Benjamin Davis, first West Point gradu-
ate and first African-American to earn the rank of
General in the Air Force, Daniel "Chappe" James,
first African-American to obtain 4-Star General,
William Powell, first African-American to spon-
sor an air show that consisted of all African
Americans, Roscoe Brown, first 15th Air Force
fighter pilot to shoot down a Me 262 jet.
Audrick Bush and Frank Love presented a his-'
torical account of some of the Tuskegee Airman
and Dr. Norman Jackson narrated and sponsored
the event
The Gadsden County Men of Action would like
to thank Lillie Jackson (wife of Dr. Jackson), Rev.
Clifton Riley, St. Hebron Church Family and Kris
Odahowski, children's librarian, for helping make
the event a success.


Gadsden, TCC seek talented students


Identifying disadvantaged youth in Gadsden
County with academic potential is the mission of
the new Talent Search Program. Tallahassee
Community College received $880,000 from the
U.S. Department of Education for the next four
years to help identify these youth in Gadsden
County and help them complete high school and
enroll in posfsecondary programs.
Reginald James, Superintendent of the
Gadsden County Schools, said, "This funding will
help disadvantaged 'situd~n 'itsach thei'ifull poten-
tial and achieve their educational goals."
TCC won the grant by submitting an applica-
tion in a national competition sponsored by the
U.S. Department of Education. The Talent Search
Grants competition is held once every four years.
Serving as Project Director is Sharon Jefferson,
TCC Vice President for Student Affairs..
Congressman Allen Boyd's (D-FL) office reported
that 11 Talent Search awards were made in
Florida. The award to TCC is distinctive because
the other 10 grants were made to incumbent Talent
Search grantees who received up to 15 bonus
points during the application review process for
prior experience. To win the award, TCC's appli-
cation received a score of 99.33 points from the
federal review panel out of a possible 100 points.
"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 educa-
tion.and prepare them for lifelong success," said
Boyd. "The partnership between TCC and


Gadsden County will open up a door of opportu-
nities for our young people who will benefit great-
ly from the additional support that the Talent
Search Program will provide."
Six hundred students, grades 6-12 will be
tracked annually for this program that will provide
the following' services:
1. Academic advice and help in high school and
college course selection
2. Assistance in completing college admissions
and financial aid applications
3. Assistance in preparing for college entrance
examinations
4. Personal and career counseling
5. Tutorial ,e .. ices
6. Exposure to cultural and academic activities
not available to disadvantaged youth
7. Workshops and counseling for families of
students and
8. Mentoring programs for teachers, coun-
selors, 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 pro-
grams," TCC president Dr. Law said. "The
College is especially pleased to initiate this proj-
ect in partnership with Reginald James,
Superintendent of the Gadsden County Schools."
A full-time director and executive advisory
board will be assigned to the program, which is set
to kick off at the start of the 2006-07 school year.

families of people

The Big Bend area now has a local circle of
support for families with loved ones living with
congenital heart defects. Founded in May 2006,
BHBB offers families a supportive and comfort-
able place to celebrate their loved one's life, gives
understanding, hope and comfort; offers informa-
tion and resources; and raises awareness in the
community of CHDs.
"When I learned a year-and-a-half ago that my
son has a congenital heart defect, I was disap-
pointed to learn there was no local support group
for parents like me," said Karen Thurston Chavez,
founder of Broken Hearts. "Much later, when my
mind cleared a little and I could focus again, I
thought, mmm, instead of complaining there isn't
a local group, why don't I start one?"
Since it started, BHBB has identified about
eight families, of which about half participate in
some way. "I'm hoping the longer we're around,
the more we'll grow. We have so much to offer
each other, just by staying connected," Chavez
said.
BHBB meets the third Tuesday of every month
at 6:30 p.m. in Room 210 at Faith Presbyterian
Church, 2200 N. Meridian Road. Meetings will
often include a speaker, covering topics such as


with heart defects

coping with chronic illness in the family; heart-
healthy nutrition and exercise; ask the expert;
preparing for surgery or a procedure; and other
relevant topics. BHBB also will offer family activ-
ities such as picnics and potluck dinners.
The American Heart Association (AHA) esti-
mates that 1 out of every 125 children are born
with heart defects each year in the United States.
Heart defects are among the most common birth
defects and are the leading cause of birth defect-
related deaths, the March of Dimes says.
According to the AHA, nearly twice as many chil-
dren die from congenital heart disease in the
United States each year, as from all forms of
childhood cancers combined.
Learning that your child has a congenital heart
defect can be overwhelming, but there is now a
local group of parents who know exactly how it is,
and how to cope. Broken Hearts offers parents of
children with CHD a place to turn for resources,.
comfort, hope and understanding from those
understand best: other "heart" families.
For more information about Broken Hearts,

brokenhearts@comcast.net, or call (850) 443-
2984.


State's unclaimed property auctions pump

more than $1.6 billion into public schools


An unclaimed property auction held this week-
end in Tampa drew more than 300 people and
earned nearly $500,000 that will go into the state's
public school trust fund, according to Tom
Gallagher, Florida's chief financial officer.
Combined with the proceeds of an auction held'
in Jacksonville in July, more than $1 million will
be added to the school coffers, which is a record
amount from auction proceeds.
"This program is a win-win for everyone,"
said Gallagher, who oversees the Department of
Financial Services and the Bureau of Unclaimed
Property. "We set another new record last fiscal
year by returning more than $100 million worth of
cash and property to the rightful owners, but in the
meantime, Florida's school children benefit by use
of the funds for education."
A 2-carat ladies wedding ring set took the top
bid of $13,000 among the 32,000 items that were
auctioned Saturday at the Sheraton Tampa
Riverwalk Hotel. Other items auctioned included
rare coins, currency, signed baseball cards, watch-


es and silver place settings.
The auction items wete remitted to the state
from abandoned safe deposit boxes. In addition to
money from the auction of safe deposit box con-
tents, unclaimed property also includes bank
accounts, unclaimed wages, checks, deposits,
credit balances, insurance benefits and securities.
The department currently holds unclaimed proper-
ty accounts valued at more than $1.3 billion.
Claiming unclaimed property from the state is
free, and owners or heirs can claim it at any time.
The department also has a website,
www.FLtreasurehunt.org, and a toll-free hotline,
1-88-VALUABLE, where citizens can regularly
check to see if the state is holding unclaimed prop-
erty for them.

Police question bomb scare suspect Walker
SC nitinflnl


by Leslie Roberts
Times News Editor

A male youth suspected of calling in six
bomb threats to Gadsden County Schools
last week is-being questioned by authorities,
school district officials say.
The bomb threats began the morning of
Aug. 28 and were called in to Carter-
Parramore Academy and Shanks Middle
School. Both schools were evacuated and
students sent home for the rest of the day.


After local law enforcement officers
arrived on the scene and a Leon County
Sheriff's Office K9 unit used a dog to search
each of the two schools, authorities deter-
mined there were no explosives on site.
When bomb threats were made against
those two schools again later in the week
and at East Gadsden High School, officials
were able to trace the number the calls were
made from, Gadsden County
Superintendent of Schools Reginald James
said.


"I think anytime you disrupt the educa-
tion of 2,000 students, that's pretty serious.
We need the students and parents to under-
stand that the School Board and I will not
tolerate this type of behavior," James said.
In the threats made later in the week, law
enforcement officials conducted sweeps of
the schools involved and students evacuated
the building briefly, James said. They
returned after officials determined it was
safe to do so.


Greensboro depot gets new home


by Leslie Roberts
Times News Editor

Friday afternoon, the old rail-
road depot in Greensboro got a
new home.
The West Gadsden Historical
Society worked with Progress
Energy and the St. Joe Land
Company to find a new place for
the 100-year-old depot after
Progress decided to run an elec-
tric transmission line along the
old Apalachicola Northern Line
railroad track, which is parallel
to Highway 12. through
Greensboro.
Progress agreed to contribute
$35,000 to help finance the
move, and the St. Joe Land
Company donated a piece of
land across the street from its
originall site, near the intersection
of Selman and Duffle streets.
Historical Society President
Lynne Poucher said it cost more
than $20,000 to move the old
depot.
The society currently has
several projects underway,
including restoration of the
Dezell House on East 8th Street
in Greensboro. The group.

"This will be the first muse-

He also wants to be in
Gadsden County because he
said the people here are like
most southerners. "They are
open, interesting, and ready to
share. You couldn't find a bet-
ter place," he said.
He hopes that local people
will embrace the video inter-
views because he want the his-
tory of the south to be pre-
served. "If the people take it
on, they are creating their own
history. It's living history and
preserving it at the same time.
It is magical," he said.
While here Walker, who has
a Master's Degree and a PhD
from New York University,
plans to teach a beginning pho-
tography class on "How To
Take Great Photos" and lecture.
He has other projects in the
works including a humorous
documentary on how southern-
ers view the north and north-
erners and vice versa. "I want
to call it Mason-Dixon," he
said.
Walker's photographs have
been exhibited in galleries and
museums at the Mississippi
Museum of Art in Jackson, MS;
Taranto Gallery and Tricia

New York City; the Flint
Institute of Arts in Flint,MI;

and moving forward," he said.
Suggs said the current budget
addresses critical staffing issues,

technology and employee
training. All are issues that, he
said, commissioners wanted
addressed. "We are also shoring
up our fiscal reserves," he said.

was not happy with a few items
in the budget and moved to get
them removed or changed. He
asked the board to agree with him
to move nearly $600,000 from
technology to the sheriff's office
to add a female wing to the jail
and he wanted $150,000 set aside
for summer jobs to go to the
county's recreation department.
"There is no fat in this budget.
You want to take money out of a
program that trains people work
ethics. We need to train people to
be able to work not run behind a
devilish ball. That's the problem,
they're out there running behind a

"If we're going to train them,
then let's hire them in Gadsden
County," Lamb said.
Lamb also wanted to cut the
$5,200 raise in administrators'
salaries to $2,500. The difference,
he said, would be divided among

This is too easy!
I predict a fight will break out
in the stands at the Tennessee-
Florida game.
And here's a couple of things I
like to see! Wouldn't it be neat if
the Sooner Schooner flipped over
about the forty yard line on its
pre game race at Oklahoma? I'd
love to see Bevo, the beloved
Texas Longhorn steer, that
mascots the defending national
champions, break lose and attack
an unsuspecting Texas Tech Red
Raider. And how about a race
between Renegade and that
Trojan horse!
I predict we will all yell and
cheer and act like idiots "for our
team".
And then we will lose one more
American soldier in Iraq. Or there
will be another coal mine disaster
in West Virginia. A hurricane will
approach our neighbors in South
Florida. Or a son calls on the
phone, his voice tingling with
excitement, "Dad, you're going
to have a granddaughter."
And we realize, for all our
cheering, all our urging, all our
silliness, it is after all, just a
game....

*Having to come up with $2000 to $3000
