Midway to

reconsider

Morris' pay

by Leslie Roberts
Times News Editor
That a Midway building official
makes nearly twice the salary one
in Hialeah does is an issue city
officials plan to reconsider -
again in October.
The City Council voted
unanimously in July to increase
growth management services
director Roosevelt Morris' pay
rate from $23.07 per hour to $50
per hour, or $104,000 per year
assuming he works a 40-hour
week.
During Thursday's regular
meeting, the council approved
payment of an $8,275 invoice
Morris submitted for the month
of August.
"It was agreed on that we would
continue to pay him on a month-
to-month basis until we get this
ironed out," said Councilman
James Hinson.
Hinson and Mayor Delores
Madison said last month they
wanted to reconsider Morris'
recent pay increase after hearing
from constituents unhappy about
the raise.
Mayor Pro Tem Ella Barber
added her voice to that chorus
during last week's meeting.
"I've really been doing some
thinking about this and I think we
need to make it right as far as
amending his pay amount," she
said.
Morris began working solely
for the City of Midway in
January he had worked full time
for the Tallahassee Building
Department as well as in Midway
before that. His application for a
building code administrator
license is still under review by
the state Department of Business
and Professional Regulation; the
city pays a Tallahassee building
official $100 per hour to do the
tasks Morris isn't licensed to do.
Morris' contract was on
Thursday's agenda, but the
council voted to table it until City

QFD heats up over Midway growth


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
Midway's lack of planning is causing
problems for the City of Quincy. Midway,
which doesn't have any type of fire
agreement with the city, is responsible for
12 percent of its total call so far this year.
City Manager Bill Bogan asked the
commissioners for direction.
He presented a fire department "run
sheet" (the number of calls answered) that
showed Midway with 56 calls as of August


31. Those calls equate to about $200,000.
"The City of Midway does not have a
police department but they contract with
the Gadsden County Sheriffs Office and
the Florida Highway Patrol for police
protection," Bogan said.
He said his greatest concern is the
liability exposure that the city is risking.
While Midway has a volunteer fire
department, they have not shown up to
answer any calls or back up Quincy's
firefighters.
Bogan said that several weeks ago when


a teenager was killed in an automobile
accident, Midway never showed on the
scene. And just recently when someone
had to be cut out of a vehicle, Midway was
a no-show.
"With all of the growth and things
happening in Midway, we have to explain
to them that we cannot continue to operate
this way," Bogan said.
Fire chief Howard Smith said the city has
become the first responder for Midway.
"We answer alarms at homes and
businesses (even false alarms), car fires,


structure fires, grass fires, you name it,"
Smith said.
"I'd like to be a good neighbor, but it
would be prudent for us to have a fire
contract," said commissioner Andy Gay.
City Attorney Jack McLean advised the
commissioners that because the city has no
legal agreement with Midway, they are
under no legal responsibility to be the first
responder. The city's interlocal agreement
with the county provides for covering a
five-mile radius outside of the city limits.

QPD retirements,


resignations costly


in experience


Some leaving force
under suspicion

by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
In the last two weeks, nearly 75
years of experience has been lost
in the Quincy Police Department.
"I'm disappointed but our
officers have stepped up to the
plate and the citizens are' well
protected," said Chief Gerald
McSwain.
The latest came last Friday
when Capt. James Hughes, Jr. a


19-year veteran resigned.
"After nineteen years of
dedicated service and experience,
it is time to move on. It has been
a pleasure to work for the Quincy
Police Department. Thank you
for the opportunity to work at the
Quincy Police Department,"
Hughes wrote.
McSwain said that despite
rumors to the contrary Hughes
was not the subject of an
investigation.
In a memo to Hughes dated
* September 8, (the same day that
Hughes' resignation was
accepted) McSwain advised

public hearings last Wednesday
during a special meeting held
because of the Primary Elections
the previous Tuesday.

Reed: I feel vindicated by Quincy forensic audit


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
When the City of Quincy's forensic
audit, completed several weeks ago, found
no fraud, only poor bookkeeping habits,
former finance director Neva Reed felt
vindicated.
Reed said she knew that nothing would
be found indicating that she had done
wrong and said she had always told the
manager and the commission that she
needed to be able to hire qualified, trained
professionals. Community college
graduates and high school graduates with
only in-house training, she said, were not
qualified to keep a finance department
running smoothly.
"There was no missing money. I.
repeatedly told the manager and the
commissioners that they needed to put
aside money to hire and retain qualified

people. No, they preferred to slander my
name. I don't know why they felt the need
to go to the Tallahassee Democrat and act
as if I had done something wrong. But I
don't blame the people of Quincy, I blame
those six (five commissioners and the
manager) people on that podium, they
knew the truth," she said.
The newspaper ran a front page Sunday
article about the financial problems in
Quincy. Reed, as finance director, was the
main topic of the article that was less than
flattering.
She said she has yet to hear from the
reporter who wrote that article since the
forensic audit has been released. "Where is
she now? I wonder if she will write
another front page article," Reed said.
Because of the article, she said, she has
been unable to get a job.
Reed said she gave the city all she had
and more. Her physician, she said, warned

her that the pace at which she was working
was adversely affecting her health. "I had
my job to do and I had to do the work of
other people in the office because they
simply didn't have the level of expertise
needed to do the job," she said.
In addition to running the day-to-day
operations in finance, Reed was also
assistant city manager and senior
accountant.
"There was nothing new in the audit that
I had not been telling them all along. Our
auditors had given them the same
information that the forensic auditors gave
them. She said commissioners also knew
about the contract that went from $75,000
to $800,000. "They approved every one of
those change orders without hardly a
question. The engineer brought those
change orders and they approved of them
right then in (commission) meetings," she
said.


Reed said before she came to work in
Quincy she had an agreement with Willie
Earl Banks, the city's former city manager,
that she was not looking to stay an
extended period of time.
"I told the manager when I came here
that I intended staying no more than four,
maybe five, years at the most. I told him
that I wanted to do some other things with
my life," she said. So, when Reed received
a hand-delivered notice of termination
from the Banks two months before she
planned to leave anyway, she was
perplexed to say the least.
Reed said she had already tendered her
resignation, effective the first of January,
2006. "The chief brought me a letter at my
home on October 7. It was very short and
terse and said something like 'you are
hereby terminated' without giving me a
reason, And, I still don't know why he felt

Nearly 400 turn out for 'Come Together'


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
Nearly 400 people showed
up Saturday for "Gadsden
County Come Together Day"
that brought together organiza-
tions and people who need their
services.
Like one stop shopping, rep-
resentatives from Healthy Start
for Babies to the Social Security
Administration, were all under
one roof.
"This is a wonderful turn out.
I'm so pleased with the number
of people here who can learn
about the services available. I
am equally impressed with the
caliber of vendors that have
been assembled," said the Rev.
Matthew Carter, pastor of
Beulah Hill Baptist Church in
Gretna and a member of the
Public Service Commission.
The tone was set by the
Drumline from New Bethel
A.M.E. Church. Other entertain-
ment included Praise Dancers
from Greater Tanner Chapel
A.M.E. Church, a trombone
solo by Brandon Lettinhand and
a cello solo by Javacia


Lettinhand. Steven Brooks' ren-
dition of "Amazing Grace"
wowed the crowd.
Representative Curtis
Richardson was also there with
his two children in tow. "This is
a wonderful. Bringing services
to the people is what it's all
about and when you can have as
many different organizations
here offering as many services,
somebody put in a lot of hard
work," he said.
The faith-based community
deserves most of the credit,
according to organizer Ava
Parker. Letters were sent to
churches throughout the county
requesting their participation in
the event. She said many
churches sent representatives
who volunteered to help organ-
ize the event as well as work
Saturday.
Some of the booths repre-
sented included Workforce Plus,
Girl Scouts, Legal Services of
North Florida, Guardian ad
Litem Program, Covenant
Hospice, Migrant Programs,
Rural Development, Big Bend
Transit, Quincy Fire

Moses Project just a plain good idea


This ust In


by Leslie Roberts,
News Editor


The unbearable cuteness of being 3


There are some things that are just a good
idea.
The Moses Project is one of those things.
It's a unique project and it saves lives. Before
Monday, I had never heard of co-sleeping and
certainly didn't know it was dangerous. I never
thought much about infants sleeping with
parents or siblings. I guess I just took for
granted that babies sleep in their own cribs. I
remember my own baby bed, seems like I slept
in that thing until I was seven years old then I
graduated to my own double bed.
Kelly Parker, the executive director of the
Healthy Start Coalition really opened my eyes
when she said that hundreds of children die
each year from co-sleeping. This year alone,
Parker said, 16 babies in Gadsden County have
died already and it's only September. She said
that two of the deaths were definitely from co-
sleeping and several others were undetermined.
With the winter months just ahead, the worry is
that mothers may put their infants in the bed
with them and will roll over and crush them or
they may suffocate under the weight of the
covers.
The Gadsden County Senior Citizens are
riding to the rescue and have agreed to turn
regular laundry baskets into baskets for babies.
These baskets are a safe place for infants to
sleep. And, because the baskets come with
handles the babies can easily be moved from
place to place when mothers are doing chores
or tending to other children.


A good friend of mine is celebrating her
sixteenth birthday today. Before I could barely
congratulate her she asked, "Did you have a party,
Mr. Kes, when you turned sixteen?"
Ouch! It had been so long ago that I didn't
remember!
"Did you get a car?"
I chuckled before answering that one-it hadn't
been THAT long! "No, I didn't!"
It would do no good to try to explain to her the
circumstances and conditions surrounding turning
sixteen in January of 1963. We had a family car.
One family car! It had to do for all the needs of both
my parents and all three sons. I wasn't the last one
in the pecking order but I was far enough down the
list that I figured I would have to "scramble" for
driving time.
Of course, "getting the car" depended on passing
my driver's license test. The rumor had gone around
that the powers to be were going to raise the legal
age for obtaining your license to eighteen. I near
'bout panicked the last couple of weeks leading up
to my birthday. "Mom, we've got to get right over
to the place as early as we can. They may change
the law before noon!"
Forty-three years later it's still sixteen. I might
have had those anxiety attacks for nothing!
I figured the driving part would be a snap. I had
wheeled that old Farmall tractor around the back
forty for years now. Nicky Joelet me drive his
Corvette over to Pat Houston's Grocery to buy some
baseball cards when I was fourteen. You talk about
a cool ride..... And after Diane Stoner near about got
us killed out on the Shiloh Road I took to driving
her dad's truck out of self preservation. I wasn't but
fifteen that fall but I was grown up enough to realize
riding with Diane could be hazardous to your
health!
I was worried about the written part of the exam.
I could distinguish a stop sign from a yield sign. I
knew it was 65 MPH in the daylight, 55 MPH at
night. And I wasn't going to pass on a double
yellow line. But how far you had to be behind the
car in front of you when you were going 30 MPH or
40 MPH could be a little confusing.... as could that
part where you turned your tires "into the curb" if
you were parked on a hill....or maybe it was "away
from the curb" if you were on the hill facing
down.... I wasn't sure how close to an on coming car
I could get before dimming my lights, but I did
know to come to a complete stop if you even saw a
school bus.
I passed the written part. The officer that took me
for the driving test was eight feet tall. He had a
clipboard. And he didn't smile. I solved that "into"
or "away" from the curb problem by getting both

The senior citizens were excited too. They
jumped right in Monday morning and started
sewing. But most of all they were interacting
with each other. There was some good-natured
ribbing about who could sew and who couldn't.
Two women sitting next to each other were
hand stitching baby blankets. One was pretty
loose with her needle, taking the needle way up
in the air each time she made a stitch. The other
woman said "I'm going to move over and give
you enough room for your needle." To which
she replied, "I'm good with a needle, I won't
stick you unless I want to," and they both
laughed.
Arrie Battles, a member of the Board of
Directors for the center, sat back and smiled as
she watched the senior citizens pick up
needles, thread, and called for assistance for a
sewing machine that wasn't cooperating. They
were helping each other and they were having
fun. Arthritis was forgotten and talk of aches
and pains gave way to recollections of children
and grandchildren. Those who were at first
apprehensive soon got into the groove.
This project is going to be a win-win
situation for everyone involved. It's going to
help mothers care for their infants better and
it's giving senior citizens a project they can
really get their hands on.
Thank you Shelia Callahan for bringing this
project to the attention of our Healthy Start
Coalition. It is just what we needed.


Dairy Bar as a legal automobile operator. I had my
shoulders reared back and only one hand on the
wheel as I pulled up as close to the front as I could.
I'm telling you, it was a feeling of freedom....of
independence....of importance....that I have seldom
achieved since.
I didn't even mind that the family car was a very
mundane 1960 Chevrolet with no air conditioner, no
power steering, no buckets seats and no radio. I
didn't require a chauffer! I had driven myself out to
"peruse the scene".
"What ya' want tonight?" Buddy Wiggleton had
sauntered out to take my order. He obviously wasn't
too impressed with my new found liberty. Or my
car. Or my elbow placed judiciously across the open
window of the driver side door to hopefully make
my little tiny bicep appear larger than it actually
was.
"Is Pam cooking tonight?" I always thought it
kind of backwards that Buddy was the car hop and
Pam Collins worked the grill.
"Yes."
"I'll just have a Coke."
"Good thinking." Buddy knew more about Pam's
culinary skills than anybody!
Of course, having that driver's license, for me,
turned out to be more symbolic than practical. "Dad,
can I have the car tonight to run Charlotte and
Derinda down to Gleason to the horse races?"
"No."
"Dad, can I borrow the car tomorrow, I
promised Ruth Ann we'd go to the lake."
"No."
"Dad," a bunch of us want to ride out to the clay
pits and see Yogi slide down that big bank on an
inner tube. Would it be alright if I take the car?
"No.'
"Dad, how about I take the car and cruise around
town tonight?"
"How about you don't."
You see what I mean! Dad acted like it was his
car! He took to playing twenty questions with.me if
I was just driving down to the store to get HIS
cigarettes. And then, he'd stand at the back door and
watch me back out the driveway like he wasn't sure
I could make it. He would mention gas money to me
on a daily basis. He warned long and often of the
power of that 283 engine. He found more and more
things for me to do out at the barn, or over at the
corn crib or down in the back forty. Apparently he
wasn't all that keen on me hanging around
Charlotte, Derinda or Ruth Ann Wiley.
My license didn't mean a thing! Turning sixteen
hadn't exactly set my world on fire. I was still
walking to most places. Or Mom would drop me
off. I would hitch-hike back from the baseball
games. And I was still spending half my life waiting
to catch a ride with Diane Stoner.....

Respectfully,
Kes


I was putting dishes into the dishwasher when
my son walked into the kitchen.
"Hi Mom."
"Hey."
"Whatcha doing?"
"Cleaning up the kitchen."
"Why?"
"Because it's messy."
"Why?"
"Because we just had dinner."
"Why?"
"Because we were hungry."
"Why?"
From that exchange you've concluded that my
son is either a) a journalist or b) 3. The answer is
b, and if he shows a pervasive interest in
journalism during the next two decades I will
lock him in his room until he's 30 or secures a
job with a high-paying engineering firm,
whichever comes first.
He turns 4 next week and I can't believe it.
He's morphed almost overnight from a wiggly
infant to a robust toddler to a bona fide little 'boy.
I was, at 36, officially considered a geriatric
mother, and whoever coined THAT term should
be shot on sight. On the first anniversary of 9/11,
I spent the day desperately trying to find one
position just one in which I could be
comfortable while totirig around what I was
convinced was 12 pounds of child. It was a
hopeful thing, though, to be expecting after such
a horrific loss of human life.
As it happened, he was nearly underweight
when he arrived 5 pounds, 6 ounces of beautiful
baby boy. I looked into his blue eyes, he looked
into mine, I said, "I feel like I'm going to be
sick," and promptly passed out.
So much for tender moments.
Still, I was relieved when they brought him
into the ICU,to. see me, worried I'd made a :
somewhat lackluster first impression. He made
up for that later.

It's not the

dollars, it's

where they

live!

Your recent article
correcting the salaries for top
county employees triggered a
raw nerve.
The adjusted salaries are
not the problem; they all seem
reasonable for the
responsibilities involved. The
problem is that the majority of
the people in the positions do
not live in Gadsden County!
This has two negative
effects: (1) the people making
the top salaries in the County
are not investing them in the
County, and (2) we are not
building a strong group of
professionally prepared
residents who have the
experience to do these
important jobs.
Both of these effects
undermine the economy, and
diminish the participation of
people with managerial and
administrative experience in
informal activities that are
vital to the growth and
development of the County.
This phenomenon is not
unique to County employees.
Many of the better paying jobs
in health and education and
other public and private
sectors of the economy are
occupied by people who do
not live in the County.
Though it would probably
not be good policy, or even
legal, to only hire people in


tor


professional positions who are
residents of Gadsden County,
at a minimum preference
should be given to residents
who have the qualifications to
do the work, and non-residents
who are hired should be
strongly encouraged to move
to Gadsden County within a
reasonable time of accepting
the position.

Local diners file discrimination complaint against restaurant


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
All Nathaniel Sailor and his wife,
Juanita, wanted for supper on Friday,
August 4, of this year was a stack of
waffles. The couple and a friend left
their home in Quincy and headed to the
nearest Waffle House on Brickyard
Road in Midway, arriving about 5:45
p.m.
The Sailors never got their waffles
and have filed complaints with the
Florida Commission of Human
Relations, the Better Business Bureau
of Northwest Florida, Inc., and the
Waffle House corporate office. Their
next step is to take it to civil court.


According to the complaint sent to
the Florida Commission on Human
Relations, the Sailors allege discrimina-
tion because of their race. The Sailors
are Black and on the day they entered
Waffle House the waitress and cook
they interacted with were white.
Nikita Robinson in the legal depart-
.ment at the Waffle House corporate
office in Norcross, GA, said she was
aware of the complaint but could not
comment until the invesitgation has
been completed.
According to Sailor, this is what
happened: the three of them walked
into the restaurant and decided to take a
seat at the counter. Juanita Sailor told


the waitress that they "were ready to
order"; the waitress didn't respond.
Later when a white male customer
came in, seated himslef at the counter,
the waitress took his order and gave it
to the cook who proceeded to prepare
his order.
Sailor said his wife then asked the
waitress could they "please" get some
service, At that time, the cook told
Juanita Sailor to wait until the waitress
finished "doing what she was doing."
Sailor said his wife then told the cook
that she should not talk to customers
that way.
The waitress then took their order
and tried to give it to the cook, but the


cook refused to take the order and left
the cooking area. Sailor said the cook
was in the back for about ten minutes
when the waitress went into the back to
get her. She refused again to take the
order and picked up her cell phone and
had a conversation. Sailor said the wait-
ress made several attempts to hand the
cook the order, but she continuously
refused to take it. Sailor said they final-
ly left the restaurant around 6 :25.
"As we were leaving my wife asked
the cook why she didn't serve us, she
just waved at us and said 'whatever
bye-bye' ", Sailor said.
Sailor said he wants the company to
better train their employees in how to


deal with customers, he wants both of
the employees terminated, and he wants
to compensation for the treatment he
received from the two employees.
In a letter to Sailor, vice president of
customer service for Waffle House
Valencia Porter wrote that the company
takes these types (discrimination) of
complaints seriously and thanked him
for taking the time to report the com-
plaint. She said the complaint will be
investigated by a case manager who
will review the information and recom-
mend a resolution based on the find-
ings.
In the meantime, Sailor has met with
a lawyer to get his side represented.

Jones arrested on meth charge


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editors
Parking a truck at the very end of a dead
end road in Greensboro is one way to draw
attention from a deputy on routine patrol.
And, taking off when the deputy approaches
is a definite no-no. Add to that, jumping out
of the truck and getting into a struggle with
the deputy is a sure ride to the county jail.
That's what happened last Friday after-
noon when Deputy Gil Johnson met up with
45-year-old Timothy Walter Jones of
Jackson County.
When Johnson saw Jones drop a plastic
baggie containing a white substance, that he
thought was cocaine, he called the county's


narcotics and vice unit. When they arrived
they detected the strong chemical odor that
is found from chemicals used in the making
of methamphetamine.
Because of chemicals are explosive, the.
area around Jones' truck was cleared by the
methamphetamine decontamination team
made up of several law enforcement agen-
cies. ,
Lt. Jim Corder of the Gadsden County
Vice and Narcotics Unit said he knew imme-
diately what Jones was up to in Greensboro.
"He had everything needed to make
methamphetamine except one chemical. The
missing chemcial is one used by corn farm-
ers. This is the second case of a "mobile


meth lab" found in Gadsden County," he
said.
According to Corder, meth is a serious
problem in surrounding counties but
Gadsden County has, so far, not seen an
increase in the use of the drug that can be
made in a weekend and is highly addictive.
"We typically don't have a problem with
crystal meth, it is not the-drug of choice for
users in Gadsden County," Corder said.
Jones was arrested and has since posted a
$10,000 bond for possession of metham-
phetamine and possession of listed precur-
sors (chemicals used to produce metham-
phetamine). Jones faced similar charges in
Jackson County.


Police make 3 crack arrests


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

Two Cairo, GA men were arrested and
charged last .week with trafficking cocaine
following a two week investigation by the
Gadsden County Sheriff's Vice and.
Narcotics Unit, the Florida Department of
Law Enforcement, and the Southwest
Georgia Drug Task Force.
Grant Shazer, 36, and Craig
Montgomery, 29, were arrested after they
sold 98 grams of crack cocaine to an under-
cover agent. The recovered crack cocaine


had a street value of $5,000.
The crack cocaine was destined to be
sold on the streets of Havana. Both men are
in the Gadsden County Jail on $100,000
bond each.
In an unrelated drug arrest, 43-year-old
Anthony "Pookie" Simmons of Havana was
arrested and charged with sale of crack
cocaine and possession of crack cocaine
with intent to sell after he also sold crack
cocaine to an undercover agent in the Twin
Creek area of Havana. Simmons was arrest-
ed in Tallahassee by the Florida Department
of Law Enforcement on a warrant. He has


Gretna man collapses,


dies at state hospital


Had been helping

coworker who

was attacked

by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

A Gretna man, 52-year-old
James Smith, collapsed and died
last Friday at Florida State
Hospital in Chattahoochee after
he helped a coworker who was
being attacked by a patient in
the forensic unit.
The unit is where criminally
insane patients are held.
Smith suffered from an
apparent heart attack in the unit
where he was a unit treatment
and rehab worker for the past 32
years.
The unit where the attack
occurred is in that part of the
hospital that treats criminal
defendants who are found


incompetent to continue with
court proceedings because of
mental illness, retardation, or
autism. Some have been acquit-
ted of felony charges by reason
of insanity.
The employee Smith help
suffered head injuries as a result
of being struck by the patient.
According to a spokesperson
with the Division of Children
and Families, the other employ-
ee was taken for treatment while
Smith stayed on duty and con-
tinue to monitor the patient and
that was when he collapsed.
Smith was taken to
Tallahassee Memorial Hospital
where he was pronounced dead.
Smith also worked for the
Gadsden County School Board
as a cafeteria worker at Gretna
Elementary School for many
years.
Services for Smith will be
held at 1 p.m. Saturday at St.
Stephens Primitive Baptist
Church in Gretna.

Ella Parker Dickey takes seat


vacated by death of cousin


by Leslie Roberts
Times News Editor


Midway City Council has a new member.
Ella Parker Dickey, 54, was named Thursday to
fill the District 3 seat vacated by Louis Parker Jr.,
who died July 15.
She is Parker's cousin and a lifelong Midway
resident.
Dickey said she wanted to serve on the council
for "a number of reasons."
"I felt like maybe I could help the people in my
area," she said. "I just felt like maybe I could be of
help not only to my district, but to the City of
Midway as a whole."
Before retiring, Dickey worked as a library
technical assistant for Florida A&M University.
She is also active in her church, Ecclesia
Outreach Ministry in Tallahassee, where she
serves as an administrative assistant and as a vol-


unteer with the Department of Victims Services
victims advocate program, the Quincy Police
Department's victim advocate services program
and Refuge House.
"I just love people," she said. "Any way I can
help that's what I do."
Dickey said she thinks Midway's current
growth spurt is "awesome", and that employment
opportunities and drug abuse are two of the city's
most pressing concerns.
"I'm hoping for people to be able to get a job,
to be able to support themselves," she said. "I am
especially concerned about drugs I don't want to
see our young men having to go through that.
They need to be able to find jobs, support their
families it's a better way."
Married to Rhuben Dickey, Dickey and her
husband have three children: Cledis, Jerrett and
Lawanda.

Dustin Koonce says building
a small subdivision in Midway
is a way for him to give back to
the community he came from..
Residents who live near the
site, though, say they don't want
the traffic or the development in
their neighborhood.
More growing pains in
Midway, and city council mem-
bers considered them one by one
at last week's regular meeting.
"It's a tremendous balancing
act to sit here and try to make
decisions based on what's best
for the city, what's best for the
developer and. what's best 'for
the citizens," Councilman James
Hinson said. "I'm not ready to
vote it's been a long time since
I've seen so many names on a
petition."
Leeshun Jackson-Fryson
gave commissioners a petition
opposing Koonce's proposed
development on Knight Road,
Taylor Ridge Subdivision.
Commissioners were scheduled
to vote on a preliminary plat of
the subdivision Thursday but
tabled the issue after several cit-
izens spoke against it.

It's not surprising that some
Gadsden County residents felt
Sunday's earthquake off the Gulf
of Mexico, a geophysicist says.
It's surprising more of them did,
not.
Two Gadsden County residents
reported feeling the quake one
in Chattahoochee, one in Havana
- which occurred Sunday at 10:56
a.m., 260 miles west southwest
of Clearwater in the Gulf of
Mexico. The magnitude 6.0
quake caused no damage but its
effects were felt throughout
Florida, Alabama and Louisiana.
Don Blakeman, a geophysicist
with the U.S. Geological Survey,
said it's the second earthquake
off the coast of Florida this year -
a 5.2 magnitude earthquake
occurred in the same general area


Koonce is proposing a 33-lot
subdivision of around 25 acres.
"One of my interests was that
I moved away from Gadsden
County because there weren't
any job opportunities this will
create local jobs, for carpenters
and plumbers and electricians,"
Koonce said in an interview
Friday. "This is a way to give
back to my community."
But Oneal Jackson, who lives
on Knight Road, said he wants
the city to vote against the sub-
division.
"There's going to be heavy
equipment, a lot of cleaning up -
who's going to maintain that
road?" he asked Koonce.
"You're a young man, and I
want you to make as much
money as you can, but the
choice is hell."
Koonce said he'd put gravel
along the road entrances to min-
imize impact on the asphalt
apron and would maintain
swells and would serve as presi-
dent of the homeowner's associ-
ation as required until 80 per-
cent of the lots have been sold.
But other residents argued

"It's really very rare to have
earthquakes that size in the Gulf
of Mexico," Blakeman said.
There were 5,800 reports from
people who said they felt the
earthquake. Those reporting it
registered on the U.S. Geological
Survey website and are identified
by zip code.
According to the website's
earthquake history of Florida, on
Nov. 18, 1952, "a slight tremor
was felt by many at Quincy, a
small town about 20 miles
northwest of Tallahassee.
Windows and doors rattled, but
no serious effects were noted.
One source notes, 'The shock
interfered with writing of a
parking ticket."'

al traffic would just make the
problem worse.
Then, there are residents who
just plain don't like the idea.
"It's more than the size of the
road," Councilwoman Mae Cato
said. "The citizens. some are
senior citizens, they're set in
their ways they do not want it
down there."
Koonce's lawyer, Maribel
Nicholson-Choice, said the sub-
division is in compliance with
city code and its comprehensive
plan. Nicholson-Choice is chair-
person for the Tallahassee-Leon
County Planning Commission.
"'We just don't want them
here' that's not a legal basis to
reject (development)," she said.
The issue will be taken up
again at another meeting.

GAC presents 'Fascinating


Faces: Honoring the Elderly'


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

"This is a show that everyone
in the county ought to come and
see," said Martha McCaskill
Friday night during the opening
of "Fascinating Faces: Honoring
The Elderly" at the Gadsden
Arts Center. Works by Virginia
(Ginny) Coultas were the high-
light of the upstairs community
meeting room, which is seldom
used for exhibits.
McCaskill, who also sits on
the art center's board of direc-
tors, was anxious to get the
word out to senior citizens all
- over the region. "This would be
a great place for a field trip for
seniors," she said.
"In recent years I have
become fascinated with the
faces of the elderly,"Coultas
said. Since retiring from teach-
ing, she has had more time to
devote to her art and spends at
least two hours a day painting,
and sculpting. "I get cranky if I.
Can't, do this," she said.
While most of the work on
display now is oil there are also
watercolors and a couple of pas-
tel pieces. She said she has
loved to draw and paint since
childhood and holds a degree in
elementary education. She has
taken art classes at the
University of Illinois,
University of Minnesota,
Florida A & M University, and
Sante Fe Community College
plus numerous workshops.

Lynn, a retired FAMU profes-
sor, have lived on a small farm
in Havana since 1969. Until
recently, they had a "cut your
own" Christmas tree business, a
pick-your-own grape farm and
they continue to have a big gar-
den. "The farm has been a won-
derful place to rear our four
boys and a very special place for
our grandchildren to visit," she
said.
Downstairs in the Sara May
Love Gallery and the Zoe
Golloway Exhibit Hall, "Natural
Elegance" with works by Hank
Fleck, Jane Tallman, and
Charles Clough are on display.
Especially beautiful is Tallman's
acrylic "Late Afternoon" which
depicts the wonderful marshes
of Florida. Most of Tallman's
work on display features a water
theme. From the acrylic
"Lighthouse at Noon" to the oil
pastel "Lighthouse Pond" .her
work caught the eye of those
attending.
Charles and Betty' Hihson'
Flowers said they were especial-
ly drawn to the lighthouses. "We
both like lighthouses and the
representation of a safe.harbor,"
Mrs. Flowers said.
If acrylic on masonite is what
you like, look no further than
the works on display by Charles
Clough. There are three works
on display by the 78-year-old
Clough.
Fleck displays a mixed medi-
um of oils, pastels, and oil pas-
tels.

Moses Project seeks to keep


local babies sleeping safely


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
Many people know the Biblical story of Moses
and how, to save his life, his mother placed him in
a basket and floated him down the river. The
infant was ultimately rescued and reared by the
King's daughter.
Each year hundreds of babies die in this country
from sleeping with others. In Gadsden County this
year at least two babies, and maybe more, died in
Gadsden County from what is called co-sleeping.
Babies from birth to three or four months are the
most vulnerable when sleeping with parents, grand-
parents, or siblings.
To help address this national problem locally the
Moses Project kicked off at the Gadsden County
Senior Citizens Center Monday morning.
The Moses Project is a program designed to
reduce infant mortality by providing safe sleeping
space for infants. "Many infants in Gadsden
County share sleeping space with older brothers
and sisters or adults. This is not safe because infants
can be crushed. In the winter time, they can slip
beneath heavy covers and suffocate," said Kelly
Parker, executive director of Gadsden County's
Healthy Start Coalition.
Shelia Callahan of Tallahassee brought the proj-
ect to the attention of Parker after learning about it
from her 81-year-old mother. Callahan's mother,
who lives in Palmetto, sews basket liners and baby
quilts for the project. Callahan and her friend, Judie
Chester, made several baskets and kits to help the
Gadsden County project get started.
Moses baskets are not new. "They've been
around for years. People have always put babies in
baskets and taken them to picnics and outings. If
you go online, some of them can cost up to $300,"
she said.
"It's really easy and simple, you don't have to be
a super sewer or you don't even have to sew, you
can iron," Callahan told a group of about 50 senior
citizens. Callahan and Chester brought with them
kits with all of the items pre-measured and cut for
the basket liners, mattresses, mattress covers, fitted
sheets, and baby bathcloths.
Vera Pringley has been sewing since she was a
girl. As a member of the 4-H Club she won three
first place awards for her sewing skills at the State
Fair as a teenager.
The Moses Project fit right in with her skills. "I
make doll clothes for my two-year-old granddaugh-
ter now. I'm working on a Cinderella dress for one
of her dolls," she said. Pringley took a seat at the
sewing machine and within minutes the familiar
hum took over. Periodically, she leaned over to help
Lennie Winthers who was also sewing the rough
edges of a receiving blanket.
JannieBradwell was working on a-baby blanket
but she was-sewing.by hand.."I know how to sew
but today I want to do some hand work. Jones is no
stranger to making blankets and quilts. Last year
she and several others at the center made 50 lap
quilts that were donated to RiverChase.

"I love to sew. It's a lot of fun. I started sewing
in 1970 when I moved back home from Winter
Haven. I belong to a choir and they liked to change
uniforms so I started making mine," she said.
Jasie Donaldson started sewing after her chil-
dren were born. "I learned (to sew) from my moth-
er and grandmother. I made all of my children's
clothes. I haven't sewed in about three years so I'm
a little rusty, but they say you never forget it," she
said, threading the machine.
Pearlie Barnes said she can't sew so she teamed
up with Edna Jones. While Jones handled the
machine, Jones handled the ironing board next to
her. "This is working out just fine," Jones said.
The baskets are really just sturdy laundry bas-
kets purchased from a local store. "The baskets are
lined with fabric, a small piece of foam rubber is
cut to fit and covered with vinyl. There are two mat-
tress covers so that when one gets dirty they can
just throw it in the washing machine," Callahan
said, adding, "when the baby outgrows the Moses
Basket, parents are going to need an extra laundry
basket."
I "One of the things that makes this project so
unique is that it is intergenerational. The seniors are
really excited about it because everybody loves
babies and the mothers are going to get something
they can use and it could save their baby's life,"
Parker said.
The goal is to complete at least 20 baskets by
November, but the project is an on-going one. The
baskets will be distributed through the Gadsden
County Health Department.
Gadsden Correctional Institution in Gretna has
voluntberd to cit all' of the mattresses. Other doia-
tion's have come from thi local chapter of Zeta Phi
Beta Sorority, which has infant ac as .ia n bff6hal
project. Donations of flannel or other soft fabrics
and thread are being accepted by the center to con-
tinue the project.

Snakes, and monkeys, and

iguanas...oh me! Wilson's

walls alive with the jungle


by Leslie Roberts
Times News Editor
Walking into Michael Wilson's home office is
a bit like strolling through a Panamanian jungle.
That's because his walls come alive with
wildlife native to that area night monkeys on
one row, a coral snake in the corner and an igua-
na on the opposite side of the room.
A Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission wildlife biologist, Wilson enjoys the
way photography brings his work inside.
"I'm no expert I consider myself a novice,"
he said. "I get a lot of enjoyment out of photog-
raphy, and I thoroughly enjoy having people look
at shots I've taken it's a way to share my expe-
rience with them."
Most of the art on his home office walls was
,shot while he was working on his master's thesis
at Florida State University from 1999-2000. He
went to Panama's Isle of Tigre to study the influ-
ences of habitat preferences of the night monkey,
and while there, shot rolls and rolls of film.
"Night monkeys live in these hollow trees or
in vine tangles during the day and come out at
night. They evolved as a nocturnal species due to
predation. They're very cryptic in coloration and
are a little larger than a squirrel," he said. "For
that brief period of time that I was there about
two months they allowed me in their life. It was
quite an experience."
Wilson did most of his work at night, using as
little light as possible, and would at times wait
for an animal to appear. While there, he shot
:photos of vine snakes, tarantulas, spider monkeys
and parrots, to name a few.
"You'd wake up in the morning with the
sounds of everything coming alive, parrots flying
'overhead," he said. "I slept about 31/2 feet off
the ground on a hammock one night, something
shoved my shoulder. Then I felt it again. It
shoved a third time and I reached for my light,
but it was gone it very well may have been a
caman. Another time, it sounded like the jungle
was just coming apart I heard something mov-
Sing and finally two armadillos came rolling out
lof the underbrush, just playing away."
Wilson uses a 35 mm camera a Nikon N60 -
and says he prefers that to digital cameras.
"I like that anticipation 'I sat there for two
'hours did I get that shot?'" he said.
While on the island, he befriended a black
monkey whose mother had been killed by poach-


crs..
"She was following me out of camp, calling to
me," he recalls. "She was like a little kid I had
a tube of Pringles in my backpack and she'd
creep toward it, then look at me, then creep
toward it again finally, she got close enough to
it and swiped the Pringles, ran back to a safe dis-
tance and took the top off and ate them."
Wilson's photographs are striking; he man-
aged to capture the whimsy of the night monkey
along with the menace of a coral snake. His
favorite, though, is a sihouette shot taken of a
monkey swinging from tree to tree.
"I've been real fortunate to do the things I've
done," he said.

are currently or will in the future do business with
the county.
Thornton Williams, county attorney, said that
while counties usually do not solicit sponsorships,
they may solicit sponsorships for events that serve a
public purpose. The recent fishing tournament at
Lake Talquin would fall into that category.
Commissioner Sterling Watson said he was against
soliciting any sponsorships because it would set a
bad precedent.
Under the state's ethics laws, no public officer,
employee of an agency, local government attorney,
or candidate for nomination or election shall solicit
or acccept anything of value to the recipient,
including a gift, loan, reward, promise of future
employment, favor, or service, based upon any
understanding that the vote, official action, or
judgment of the public officer, employee, local
government attorney ort candidate would be
influenced.
The Attorney General ruled in one case that
donations, regardless of the source, received by the
county and deposited into the county general
revenue account are considered to be county funds.
The expenditure of such must serve a public
purpose. It is the responsibility of the county
commission to make sure the appropriate findings
that such expenditure serves a public purpose and
appropriately budget the funds.
A decision on whether or not the county will adopt
any policy is up for further discussion in an
upcoming meeting.

Number of school



employees makes



significant raises



difficult: James


Gadsden pays

41% more than

state average on

support staff

by Leslie Roberts
Times News Editor

Gadsden County Schools
Superintendent Reginald James
says it's a matter of simple eco-
nomics: The more employees
there are, the less money there is
available to pay them.
Support personnel in particu-
lar have been vocal about want-
ing a higher raise than the
School Board initially offered.
The two parties are currently at
impasse in contract negotia-
tions; the next bargaining ses-
sion is Sept. 14.
James says the local school
district currently has more sup-
port personnel than the state
average and that that makes a
significant raise impossible.
"We really have more than
the state average. Compared to
other districts our size, you can
see the astonishing difference in
the number of employees we
have," he said. "We have two
choices: Either keep all support
personnel employed and give


them a decent raise, or reduce
staff and have the resources to
be able to give people a decent
raise. My preference is the
first."
According to figures pre-
pared by district Finance
Director Bonnie Wood,
Gadsden County is spending
41.3 percent more than the state
average on support personnel
and 2.1 percent less than the
state average on instructional
personnel.
During the 2004-2005 school
year, Sumter County spent $654
per each of its 7,205 students on
instructional personnel;
Gadsden County spent $1,323
per each of its 6,086 students.
The state average expenditure
on support personnel per student
for the same year was $776.
"There are three or four posi-
tions we didn't fill in the district
office to try to find more money.
From where I sit, and I think
board members would agree,
we've done the best we can. It's
just a simple equation we've
only got so much money,"
James said. "The financial
director says at some point it
may be necessary to decrease
staff .... this doesn't have any-
thing to do with feelings, or the
union, or anything else it's just
the bottom line."


PTA kicks off year with

'Promise Day' campaign


by Leslie Roberts
Times News Editor

The Gadsden County Parent
Teacher Association kicked off
the school year recently with
Promise Day..
The "Make the Promise"
campaign is a statewide PTA
effort to encourage parents,
caregivers, school administra-
tors, teacher, community mem-
bers and business leaders to
become more involved in the
life of a child.
To mark the day, PTAs
around the state offered posters,
petitions and pledge cards with
the statement, "I promise to get

Rosa M. Robinson and
Stacey Brown, co-chairpersons
for this year's American Cancer
Society Relay For Life, took the
opportunity to urge teams to
sign up early for the April 2007
event. Robinson said, "it's never
too soon to get volunteers."
And just to lighten things up
a little, adults competed in a
hoola-hoop contest while chil-
dren jumped rope, for fun and
exercise. Those attending
enjoyed grilled hot dogs, chips,
water, and soft drinks.

"This is a way to get them
involved, let them see what's

ment community conference."
Last year, the local PTA had

said. "We're trying to get every

Reed


continued from Page 1
he had to send the Chief of Police
to my home. I didn't get any
severance pay, nothing," Reed said
last week in the first interview she
has granted since leaving the City
of Quincy.
Reed said Banks asked her to
complete four tasks when he hired
her. She said she kept her end of
the bargain. "I got funding for
good drinking water which was
around $7 million and that was
from an agency that had denied
their (the city's) application in the
past. I secured another $7.5 or $8
million dollars for road paving and
resurfacing the streets. I submitted
a balanced budget, and I was in the
process of training a person to take
over the office when I left," she
said. She said the person she chose
to replace her was Chiistie Joyner.
While Reed feels she was
mistreated and slandered she does
not plan to file a lawsuit. She said
she would never sue the city. "It
wouldn't hurt the six people who
hurt me, it would cost the citizens
who can least afford it, and I am
not going to do that to these
people," she said.
Of the six who she said hurt her,
"they will have to give an account
to a higher power."
In the meantime Reed has moved
on and has begun, with the help of
partners, to develop a subdivision
near Southwood in Leon County.

Hughes that he was "not under an
Internal Affairs investigation."
Hughes is on administrative leave
with pay unil October 6.
Michael Graham, K-9 officer,
also resigned early last week after
following an Internal Affairs
investigation which revealed that
he had been paid for hours which
he did not work. The investigation
centered around Graham's official
misconduct related to his failure to
attend training sessions.
The result of the official
investigation indicated that
Graham was paid for 80 hours that
he did not work. Of 41 training
sessions he was supposed to have
attend, Graham attended
approximately five, according to
the report. He also failed to turn in
a weekly acti',ity sheet. The report
reflected that Graham would
frequently claim one to two hours
for which he did not work.
Also, there is the issue of 32
ounces of cocaine that is missing
from Graham's drug kit. Graham
denies taking the drugs and no
charges have been filed.
Major Glenn Beach announced
'two weeks ago his plans to retire in
October. "He had a lot of time built
up so he has taken off. Beach was
with the Quincy Police Department
for the past 38 years and was
second in command.
"The retirement was unexpected
but completely understandable. I
think his wife is retiring too,"
McSwain said.
Lt. Angela Galloway has been
placed on administrative leave with
pay for two weeks, according to
McSwain. Galloway, who has been


with the department for six years,
is the subject of an Internal Affairs
investigation. He would. not
elaborate and only said the current
leave was stress related.
McSwain's executive secretary,
Shirley Ann Joyner was terminated
August 31 following an
investigation that determined her
"personal conduct" placed her in
violation of the city's rule
regarding immoral and unlawful
conduct.
In early July it was brought to the
attention of the department that
Joyner had a personal website that
contained extremely explicit
photos of her and her husband.
According to the report, Joyner's
husband told investigators that the
photos were posted for thier friends
to view.
Lauren Wright, Human
Resources Director for the City of
Quincy said "the personal privacy
issue with constitutional protection
was lost when the employee and
her husband allowed the husband's
brother to take and view the
photos.'
McSwain said he is in the process
of advertising for four officers.


Quincy

Continued from Page 1
Other municipalities that have
volunteer fire departments have
agreed to offer Quincy mutual aid
and have lived up to their bargain
by coming into the city limits to
help if needed.
"The other fire departments come
to help us out, but not Midway,"
Bogan said, adding that Midway
doesn't show up when there is a
fire in Midway. He said he has
made repeated calls to Paul Pillar,
Midway's city manager, and that
Pillar will not taken his calls.
Commissioner Keith Dowdell
said the city needs to act quickly
on notifying Midway of their
concerns because it may not have
budgeted any money for fire
protection in the budget they are
currently working to balance.
Bogan said he is sure Midway
has money for fire protection
because the county gives them
funds for fire protection and they
have been collecting permitting
fees from all of the new
construction in the city.
"I don't want to single out one
municipality, we ought to take a
look at all of them," said
commissioner Finley Cook. But
Bogan said Midway is not singled
out, they actually have many more
calls than any other municipality.
Commissioners authorized
Bogan to send a letter to Midway's
CL:, nalg ei *and copy the
colTepocndence "to County
Manager Marlon Brown and
county commission chairman Ed
Dixon. The letter will seek to enter
into an agreement with Midway for
a fire contract.
In other matters, commissioners
passed unanimously a millage rate
of 2.75 on first reading. However,
,in the first of two public hearings
to pass a final budget of
$34,787,413.00 commissioner
Derrick Elias was the lone
dissenter.
Commissioners were informed
that the developers of Sunset Acres
plan to take the city to court if the
commissioners decision to halt the


development of "Sunset Acres Unit
2". The complaint alleges that the
city violated their right to due
process, departed from the
requirement of the law and the
decision was not supported by
competent substantial evidence.
Attorney McLean asked
commissioners to allow him to
respond to a judge on the city's
behalf. "I would like to prepare a
written opinion to the judge that
explains your thought process and
what you took into consideration
when making your decision," he
said.
Commissioners also voted to:
*Allow staff to seek funding to
renovate and enhance Jackson
Heights Park.
*Voted to expend $8,000 to
repair West Circle Drive.


Midway

Attorney John Williams, who
was not at the meeting, returned.
The next regular meeting is Oct. 5.
"We're having too many citizens
complaining," Madison said
Friday. "He still does not have all
his credentials, and that's a big
issue."


In other business, commissioners:
* Approved on first reading a
voluntary annexation of around
285 acres of land comprised of
three tracts of land owned by Lex
Thompson, James Thompson and
Thomas M. Larson.
Approved on first reading the
voluntary annexation of around 6
acres of land owned by Magnolia
Farms, Inc.

The council will have its regu-
lar monthly meeting Sept. 26 at 9

There is so many Catfish in our Lake that no

Maranatha "-'tian goes to


8-2 on backs of 2 local teams


By Susie Morris
Tiny Maranatha Christian in Tallahasee got two wins
in the past week from county teams to push their record
to 8-2 on the season. Last week they defeated
Tallavana Christian quickly in three games, winning
25-1, 25-8, 25-3. The Maranatha Junior Varsity won
in best of three by scores of 25-9, 25-11.
The Munroe Lady Cats lost in five games to
Maranatha in the first ever volleyball meeting between
the schools. Both teams played similar styles of play
with the focus being a power game with passing,
setting and kills. Munroe won games one and three 25-
19, 24-25. Maranatha won games two and four 25-22
and 25-18. The 2-2 split set up the fifth game with
Munroe jumping out to a quick 6-1 lead. As they did
all night, the Patriots did not give up and battled back to
tie. On several occasions a hustling Patriot team
tracked down balls that seemed unplayable and rallied
for a point instead.
Both teams were streaky with their leads all night
with one leading by four of five points and then the
other catching up and going ahead. After a seemingly
match winning streak put the Lady Cats ahead 13-10 in
the fifth, Maranatha took advantage of a miscue by
Munroe in the net and took a 14-13 lead. On the
matches final point, a Munroe player misplayed a dink
at the net giving Maranatha the match.
For Munroe, Julia Bates served extremely well with
seven aces. Jill Purvis had possibly her best of the
season with seven kills and six blocks. Crystal Wade
added six kills and Mallary Taylor, back from an ankle
injury, tallied ten assists. Ivie Thomas contributed six
assists. Munroe dropped to 4-8 on the season with the
loss.
The Munroe Junior Varsity defeated Maranatha in'
two games with scores of 25- 20, 25- 23
Last week Munroe split two games losing to Maclay


(25-9,25-19, 25-19) and defeated Apalachicola in a
district contest (256, 15-15, 25-11). Ivie Thomas and
Crystal Wade combined for eleven aces and eight digs.
Jill Purvis led with five kills and Kaitlyn Rentz added
four digs. The Lady Cats moved to 4-7 with the
week's split.

After intermission the Panthers rolled up 28-
points to Munroe's 6. Dontavius Johnson got
those those 6 on a 5 yard run.
The Bobcats record is 1-2 on the season. They.
are off this week.
They host Summitt Christian on September 22

A Florida jury has found that Tobacco companies engaged in extreme and
outrageous conduct in the sale and marketing of cigarettes. Now, the
Florida Supreme Court has held that the tobacco companies are liable for
their conduct and individuals suffering from smoking related illnesses
may pursue claims for compensatory and punitive damages.

We Buy Cars, Trucks & SUVs


Dear Gadsden, Liberty & Calhoun
County Residents,
Three years ago I obtained my Florida
Dealer's License due to the frustration of
shopping for a used car. The following
three things made car shopping a big
headache for me:
*Haggling for the best price
*Having to come up with $2000 to $3000
for a down payment, taxes, title and tag


*Paying someone a $5000 $6000 profit
on a $10,000 automobile.
Here's what we've done at Direct
Automotive Wholesale:
*All vehicles are priced at the "Loan
Value", which is the price credit unions and
banks will loan you on this vehicle.
*We require NO DOWN PAYMENT on any
of our vehicles. We can even help with your
taxes and tag most of the time.


*At LOAN VALUE, we make a small profit
and you get a great deal!
The best Part is we have family on the
lot, NOT HIGH PRESSURE SALES PEOPLE.
If you don't see the car of your dreams in
this ad, call us. We'll get you pre-approved,
tell you what it will cost and buy it for you.
We appreciate your supporting us. Come
by or call.

by Leslie Roberts
Times News Editor
Cindy Knoblauch is a teacher, a
parent and a perennial student.'
She fills all those roles from the
home she and her husband built more
than 20 years ago just outside Havana.
When her oldest daughter, Sarah,
was school-age, the Knoblauch
debated sending her to public school.
But they decided homeschooling was
the way they wanted to go.
Now Sarah, 21, is a junior attending
Florida State University on a Bright
Futures scholarship. She's studying
engineering. Sarah's younger sister,
Emily, 18, also earned a Bright Futures
scholarship, which she will use at
Tallahassee Community College. Both
were homeschool students, as is the
Knoblauch's


house is "pretty unstructured,"
Knoblauch said.
"We kind of just follow what their
interests are. If they're interested in
butterflies, we explore every place that
leads plants, the ecostructure, we tap
into math, they'll write about it.
Basically, I feel like homeschooling is
a 24-hour, seven-day-a-week
endeavor."
According to Florida Department of
Education statistics, around 322
students are homeschooled in Gadsden
County. Florida has no minimal
requirements for home education.
Parents are required to keep a portfolio
of records and materials showing
student work, and the law allows
parents the flexibility to choose from
five evaluation methods. Parents
register with the local school district in
which they live

you participate more."
His mom agrees.
"What I think is really nice about it
is you tap into a community and there
are no brick-and-mortar boundaries,"
she said. "My kids are very socially
adept. Kids in school tend to be much
more segregated and afraid of adults."
The family attends "Park Day"
weekly, a gathering of about 250
homeschool families in Tallahassee.
The event usually lasts about three
hours, and on any given week there
might be parents teaching on a variety
of topics, show and tell and impromptu
gab sessions.
Through the years, the Knoblauchs


have had goats, chickens, guineas and
ducks on their 20-acre property; all
were part of an outdoor classroom.
They also grow blueberries, and have
70 plants that Jacob helps harvest and
sell. He's interested in business, but
also thinks he might want to be a
writer.
Knoblauch says she wouldn't
change any aspect of her children's
educations.
"They are more motivated, more
self-directed, more independent (than
children educated in formal schools),"
she said. "I have absolutely no
regrets."

Eating healthy is one of the most important steps anyone can take in making sure that they live a long, happy life. A good lifestyle is important to fight against heart
disease, diabetes, and many other life threatening illnesses. Nutrition is the science that studies what foods are healthy and what foods we need to maintain health. In
today's world there are many foods out there that are not good for us. Foods like fast food, enriched sugar products, and junk food should not be eaten on a regular basis.
However, in moderation it is okay to treat yourself to your favorite foods. The important thing to remember is to have a healthy eating style become part of your regular diet.
The more good foods you eat, the better you will feel. You may be surprised that in time fruit may become your favorite snack, as opposed to a cookie or sweets.
In order to get all the vitamins and nutrients that you need in a day, it is importantt to eat foods from all of the five food groups. Grains, rnuts, veggies, meats, and milk or
calcium are the five major groups of foods. Each type has important components for your body to stay healthy. and for kids to grow.v Grains are breads, pastas, rice, and
other types of wvhcle wheat. It is important to make sure that you are eating three servings of grains a day, and it is 'mpcrianl to make sure that they are whole grains. An
easy way to make sure that you are aettinq the 'ight Hind of grain is to ask yourself if it's white. If it's white, then it's not whole. You want to eat brown grains. These are best
for you. Fruits are another very important part of the five food groups and you need to have at least two servings of fruit a day. Fruits are rich in what is called antioxidants,
which later in life can even help fight off diseases like cancer. Vegetables are the next group, and it's important to eat at least three servings of them a day. Make sure you
are getting a wide variety of veggies. A good way to tell if you are is whether or not they are different colors. Different veggies have different things important for your body.
Make sure you get some dark green veggies too. They are very important! The next group, meats, is important so that your body gets all the iron and protein it needs. You
should be getting at least two servings of this a day, and try to make sure that they are lean meats or cooked well. It is better to grill or bake chicken than to fry it. For kids,
this is important so that your muscles can develop properly. Muscles need protein, and without it, you can become tired and fatigued. The last group is the milk group.
Everyone knows how important it is to get calcium from milk. Not only does milk help you have strong bones, but it helps your eyes stay healthy, among many other health
benefits. Make sure you get three servings a day of this group. Remember that when you have desserts or snacks, not to eat too many in one day and to pay attention to
what they are. Try strawberries for dessert instead of ice cream three days a week. Once you get healthy eating habits down, they will be with you for a lifetime!
Not only is it important to make sure that you are eating healthy, but without exercise you body is still not getting all that it needs to be healthy. Make sure that along with
following the food pyramid, that you are getting enough sleep and exercise. This will make the benefits of eating healthy even greater. Your body will thank you by having
more energy and an easier time paying attention in school. This may help you get better grades, do better in sports, and many other great things to benefit your life!!

Department of

Education awards

TCC grant to

boost people with

disabilities past

barriers to work



Tallahassee Community College
has received a $45,545 grant
award from the Florida.
Department of Education in
support of their longtime partner,'
the non-profit Florida Disabled
Outdoors Association.
The project will provide
therapeutic recreation and active
leisure for adults with disabilities
in Leon, Gadsden and Wakulla
counties.
Its goals are to improve stamina
and muscle strength, reduce
anxiety and depression, promote
general feelings of well being,
and encourage participation in the
community.
Both the College and the
Department have collaborated for
years with the FDOA, which was
founded in 1993 by David Jones,
a TCC graduate who had been
severely injured. in a hunting
accident.
After a lengthy recovery, Jones
began the association and its
annual two-day event,
SportsAbility held at TCC and


the Florida State University
Reservation to give others
access to the leisure and
recreation he credits with helping
him regain his place in society.
"I came back home to my TCC
family to see if we could go
forward together to provide
recreation activities for people
with disabilities," Jones said.
Recreation and leisure help
people with disabilities enter the
workforce by promoting
wellness, increasing stamina, and
reducing secondary health
conditions.
For instance, a person with
diabetes may well avoid the
amputation of a limb through
therapeutic recreation. By the
same token, the program
enhances mental and emotional
wellness and promotes social
involvement.
"People who can overcome the
barriers to recreation can develop
the esteem to attack the
workforce," said Jones. "The
Florida Disabled Outdoors
Association is all about active
leisure, quality of life, and being
part of the community."
Since 1995, Tallahassee
Community College has
supported SportsAbility by co-
hosting and donating to the event,
while its faculty, staff and
students have served as
volunteers. Jones is a director of
the TCC Alumni Association and
has been honored as a
distinguished alumnus of the
College.

Chattahoochee School Safety Day


The Chattahoochee
Elementary School and the
Chattahoochee Police
Department hosted a Safety Day
on Aug. 29 and 30.
On Tuesday, all students
from pre-K to the sixth grade
were informed what to do if
approached by a person
unknown to them. The students
were shown a McGruff the
Crime Dog video titled "Say No
to Drugs."
Information about wearing
seatbelts and reminding others
to buckle up was discussed also.
Officer Jim Hamilton of the
Chattahoochee Police
Department conducted these
programs. Officer Hamilton
presented the students gifts pur-
chased by the Chattahoochee
Police Department and items
donated by the Gadsden County
Community Traffic Safety
Team. The Chattahoochee
Police Department donated
items to Chattahoochee
Elementary
School to reinforce the drug
awareness and education pro-
grams to the fourth, fifth and
sixth grades.
Janice Bordelon and Lacey
Strickland, both from the
Florida Department of
Transportation Railroad
Safety/Operation Lifesaver con-
ducted a presentation of visual
aids and a video of the "do's and
don't" near railroad tracks and
trains. Ms. Bordelon and Ms.
Strickland presented items from
the Operation Lifesaver and the
Florida Department of


Transportation.
Wednesday the Safety Day
continued with presentations by
Sgt. Charles Broach and
Trooper Dusty Arnold of the
Florida Highway Patrol Troop
H-Quincy. Sgt. Broach and
Trooper Arnold explained the
importance of wearing a seatbelt
and the proper securing of a
child in a car seat. They demon-
strated this with a rollover simu-
lator that they brought for the
presentation. Several staff
members related their own
experiences with accidents and
the wearing of seatbelts.
Gadsden County
Superintendent of Schools
Reginald James was present on


the last day and met with the
students to see what they had
learned about safety.

the School's Advisory Council (SAC) is commendable. She also
has time to get involve with other activities around the campus as
well as the community.
Patterson would like to challenge all of Shanks' parents to get
involved.
