Judge OKs

hospital

proposal

by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
A judge last Friday approved
the county's proposal to use the
hospital facility as an urgent care
unit. While county officials fully
expected the judge to approve,
County Manager Marlon Brown
said that now it is official.
"The only thing that is left now
is to work out the language with
Tallahassee Memorial Hospital
(to operate the urgent care unit)
and I expect to bring that
agreement before the Board of
County Commissioners, at the
October 3 meeting," Brown said.
TMH is also in the process of
looking over applications already
submitted to work in the unit so
that when the contracts are signed
ihe unit can open as quickly as
possible.
'"Technically we are looking at
all of the equipment and getting
everything ready. The behind the
scenes work is still going on," he
said. Brown said he hoped to get
the unit open earlier but that
issues of contracts and the role
each entity would play had to be
put in writing and agreed upon by
all parties involved.
I Brian Beasley, Emergency
Medical Services director for the
county, said the volume of EMS
calls they are answering is still
very high. "We taking a lot of
calls, our trucks are having to

County refuses mileage rollback.


Sheriff denied request for
more money; raises for
department heads stay

by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
The Board of County Commissioners
approved the 2006-2007 village rate of 10
mills and the budget Tuesday night during
the regular meeting.
Two Citizens asked commissioners to roll


back the village rate as other counties
have done to give homeowners a little
relief. One man told the BoCC that raises,
the proposed $5,200 for each department
head in this year's budget, were
commendable but high. "I invite the staff
who live in Leon County and elsewhere to
come (live) here and help us out," he said.
Pat Hudgins called the refusal to lower
the village rate "utterly" ridiculous. "I
don't know what's your problem. You
expect us to pay taxes and we don't get
anything. The school system is a joke.
You're wasting a lot of money. Stop
working for yourselves and start working


McKinnon picked as


new Havana manager


for us," she said.
Commissioner Brenda Holt said the
commission is in the posture of having to
fix past wrongs. "If you want services, you
have to pay for them. I don't like it any
more than you do. I am a property owner
myself. But we have to go back and solve
the ills that didn't get taken care of before.
I would love to cut your taxes today. We
have to pull ourselves up by our own
bootstraps," she said.
Holt said it cost money to, build and
maintain fire stations and fire hydrants that
impact the amount of homeowners
insurance residents must pay. She also said


road maintenance and paving are high
ticket items that account for keeping the
millage rate at 10 mills.
"You know as well as I do that the fire
stations did not come from the millage
rate. Don't get snookered by talk of fire
stations and roads. This board could
reduce your millage rate. They did not
have to do what they did. Other boards
across the state have decreased the millage
rate," Watson told the audience.
Board chairman Ed Dixon said the issue
of rolling back the millage has been
discussed for the past 48 hours but the

Computer glitch


sends Quincy

utility bills soaring


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
Quincy's city manager, Bill
Bogan, said a glitch with the new
hand-held computers that read
meters caused the bills of nearly
100 customers to spike during
this pay cycle. The new system
wasn't tested nor was there a
pilot run before the initial use in
August.
"We went about it in the wrong
way. We could have done a better
job of implementing it and
making sure it worked before we
,went with it. We've talked with
staff about what we did wrong
and it won't happen again," he
promised.
Bogan said that for some reason
the computers misread the meters
of some customers. When the
hand-held computers were
returned at the end of the day the
collected data could not be
downloaded. Also, some of the
computers had alien codes that
caused the readings to be off.
"Some of the readers had to go
out multiple times to get a
reading," he said.


Howard McKinnon


by Leslie Roberts
Times News Editor
It's official: Havana has a new town manager.
The Town Manager Search Committee
unanimously chose Town Clerk/Finance Director
Howard McKinnon for the post during a brief
Tuesday morning meeting.
"We couldn't have picked somebody better," said
Town Manager Susan Friedman, who is leaving
the post to pursue other opportunities Oct. 2. "He's
been serving in Gadsden County for a long time. I
couldn't be happier for the town he'll do an
excellent job."
McKinnon has served in his current role since


October 2005. Prior to that, he worked as an
accountant and consultant in Quincy, and served as
county manager for the Gadsden County Board of
Commissioners from 1997-2004. He has. also
worked as finance director and acting city manager
for the City of Quincy from 1991-1997, and as
finance director for the Gadsden County Clerk of
Courts from 1989-1991.
His professional affiliations have included
chairing 'the Gadsden County Florida -School
Readiness Coalition and a stint as treasurer of the
Florida Rural Utility Finance Commission. He
holds membership in both the American Institute
of Certified Public Accountants and the Florida

School, employees agree to 3% raise


- by Leslie Roberts
* Times News Editor
Gadsden County support personnel and
school district representatives came to an
agreement last week on raises.
The two parties had been at an impasse over
raises since mid-summer; support personnel
initially asked for a 5 percent increase along
with some contract language changes.
In a bargaining session last Thursday, the
two sides agreed to a 3 percent raise and an


increase in hourly pay for bus drivers.
"We just did not want them to impose
anything on us that we didn't agree to," said
Paul Burdette Sr., director of Big Bend
Service Unit which represented both the
teachers' union and district support personnel.
"But we know the situation in Gadsden
County we're not into blaming anybody."
Under the proposed changes, bus drivers
taking students to volunteer activities will be
paid $9 an hour instead of $6.50, and bus
drivers transporting students to federally-


sanctioned programs will be paid $15 an hour
rather than $7.50 per hour.
"It made sense to me that if the federal grant
the board approved said $15 for bus drivers -
whatever they asked the government to pay,
they should pay," Burdette said.
The proposal also calls for the School Board
to pay the cost of increased health insurance
for support personnel.
"We are pleased to be able to provide all. of
our noninstructional employees a raise,"
See SCHOOL RAISES on Page 15


This delay caused a small
percentage of the customers
paying in cycle one to have
between five and 15 extra days
added to the utility bills. "It's not
that they don't owe for the usage.
They do. It's just that they have
been charged for more days in
this cycle than they ordinarily
would be paying," Bogan said.
Also, instead of bills going out
to customers earlier in the month,
the bills were mailed on Friday,
Sept. 15, with customers
receiving them on Monday, Sept.
18. Upon opening the bills
customers realized they had until
Friday, Sept. 22, to pay. But
Bogan said the city has made an
adjustment and as long as people
pay their utility bill by 5 p.m.
Monday, Sept. 25, they will not
have to pay a penalty.
Bogan said that customers
having cash flow problems who
cannot pay the full amount can
set up an appointment to make
arrangements to pay in
installments.
Customers who question the
amount of this month's bill can

Union leader says Bush

plan for state hospital

effort to kill AFSCME


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
Jeanette Wynn, president of the
American Federation of State,
County, and Municipal
Employees (AFSCME), said the
move to privatize the 24-bed
expansion at Chattahoochee's
Florida State Hospital forensic
unit is Gov. Jeb Bush's last
attempt to stick a dagger in the
back of the union.
"We've just never been able to
get along. His intent was to
destroy AFSCME," Wynn said
Tuesday, after she wrote a letter
to Rep. Aaron Bean (R-
Fernandina Beach) accusing the
Department of Children and
Families (DCF) of trying to get
around the intent of the
legislature by issuing a three-
year, $1.6 million'no-bid contract
for staffing the expansion.
"I met with DCF Secretary
Lucy Hadi and asked her why the
people who already work there


couldn't apply for the jobs and
why they had to be OPS (other
personal services). OPS
employees are technically state
employees but have no benefits.
The forensic unit pays more than
the other units although we've
been fighting for years to get
those employees designated as
high risk," she said.
Wynn said that Hadi told her
that's the way it had to be done.
"She was telling me that people
can just walk in off the street and
get those jobs," Wynn said. Unit
25 will be expanded by 24 beds
as of October 1. Most of the new
jobs will be hired through a
contract provider called
Behavorial Health Solutions.
"There was a lot of talk about
FTE's and that Bush wouldn't
approve any new slots. But that's
the legislature and they can do
anything they want," she said.
The company has advertised for

2 The Gadsden County Times September 21, 2006

P&Z okays subdivision on


Gibson Road; continues


Cook's Landing appeal


by Leslie Roberts
Times News Editor
The Gadsden County Planning and Zoning
Connmmission approved a final plat for a subdivi-
sion on Gibson Road Thursday night during its
regular meeting.
The proposed subdivision, San Bonita Estates,
is planned for an 84.2-acre parcel along the north
* side of Gibson Road west of its intersection with
US 27. County planning staff estimate the 39-lot
subdivision would generate around 373 daily
trips, primarily on Gibson Road. Commissioners
voted unanimously to approve the plat with the
condition that sidewalks be put in within 90 days.
The issue will go before the County
Commission Oct. 3, as will the other matters
approved.
In other business, commissioners voted unani-
mously to grant a request for an amendment to the
county's comprehensive plan and future land use
map by changing the adopted land use district des-


ignation on a 3.08-acre parcel of land from agri-
culture 2 to rural residential. The parcel is on the
east side of McNair Road and is owned by Johnny
Petrandis.
Also Thursday, the commission:
Unanimously approved a request for modifi-
cation of a previously approved variance to permit
an additional wall sign and increase the square
footage of the proposed signs on a 3-acre parcel
on I-10 east of Pat Thomas Parkway.
Voted 5-3 to continue an appeal of an admin-
istrative order issued'by the county growth man-
agement department. The order prohibits several
Cook's Landing Road property owners from using
recreational vehicles and permanent residences.
Commissioners decided to continue the matter
until November to give County Growth
Management Director Bill McCord time to further
research the matter, and will stay enforcement of
code in regard to RVs until that meeting.

"Helping You Feel Better"


A


"Miss Maggie" McClendon

"Miss Maggie" McClendon

. A very loyal Massey Drugs customer.
Miss Maggie isn't bashful about her age. She's quick
to tell you she's lived on God's earth for 93'years already.
And, she's just as quick to tell you Massey Drugs is HER
drug store.
"My family has been a Massey family all their lives,"
she says. "And I feel like all the folks at Massey Drugs are
like family to me."
I Living in Chattahoochee, she began trusting a Massey
pharmacist decades ago when Lamar Massey was the local
druggist. When he sold his store about 18 years ago, she
turned to Massey Drugs in Quincy. The trip to Quincy
(and she makes three to four a month) is worth it, she says.
Why? "Because what I ask for, I get," she says
emphatically. "I believe in telling people the truth, and so
do the folks here at Massey Drugs," she adds.
Her trips to Massey Drugs aren't always about pre-
scriptions, either. She loves the selection of crystal and
other gift items she buys for her family.

As long as we think, we can be better than we are.

By Alice DuPont, Editor



Contemplation,



Forensic Unit employees

deserve better treatment


Anyone in Gadsden County knows that
the Forensic Unit at Florida State Hospital
is a dangerous place to work.
I remember in the 1960s when my
brother worked there along with several
other young men on the 11 p.m. to 7 a.m.
shift to help pay for college expenses.
These guys were young and strong and
could get a job in forensics because no one
else wanted to work there if they had a
choice. My parents told him to find
another job the morning he came home
bloody with his shirt in shreds.
There have always been horror stories
coming out of FSH when it comes to the
forensic unit especially. The fact is, had the
residents (in my book they are inmates) not
been labeled insane, they would probably
be in someone's maximun security prison
for life. That's why I can't understand why
the people who work with these residents
aren't given hazardous duty or high risk
pay.
Every few years the issue comes up that
these employees who are risking life and
limb should be paid more and given a
shorter time to work before becoming
eligible for full retirement. It's unfortunate
that James Smith's death .brought the
subject up again. Last Tuesday I got a
telephone call asking me to attend a
meeting the following day. The caller said
he didn't really know the purpose of the
meeting, but that he had been asked to call
me.
I didn't go.
I knew what was going to be said and,
sadly, I knew what the outcome was going
to be. Nothing. The employees would have
the opportunity to vent the anger, explain
their frustrations and worry about whether
they would be' reassigned or transferred to
unpleasant duty for talking openly about
"things" at Florida State Hospital. As far
back as I can remember, it's always been
that way at FSH. In the past I have covered
the goings on at FSH on a regular basis.


The public meetings were some kind of
"review board" that disbanned after a few
years. Nothing of substance was ever
discussed during the meeting. They asked
that "the public" be excused when they get
ready to discuss the real nitty-gritty. The
problems were always discussed behind
closed doors.
The problems just kept coming and the
employees kept complaining. Once it was
the food service. Once it was the laundry
service. Once it was more rights for the
residents (that was shortly after a Miami
Herald reporter pretended to be crazy and
wrote about the inside when he got back
outside). Once it was employee pay or lack
of it. But more pay and fewer years for
retirement for those who worked forensic
has always simmered on the back burner.
Each time it comes up in the Legislature,
it's swatted down. To their credit Lawson
and Richardson have tried, and before
them it was Pat Thomas and James Harold
Thompson and all they have been able to
get was a sympathetic ear from fellow
lawmakers and a promise to look into it
dttring the next session.
I asked a FSH employee who has worked
in the forensic unit all of his career. "I'm
getting too old. I should have been able to
retire by now, but I have to work a few
more years in order to get my pension. If
our jobs had been high risk like other
people working with prisoners, James
could have retired two years ago," he said.
Smith collapsed and died of an apparent
heart attack after helping a co-worker who
had been attacked by a resident in the
criminally insane ward.
This has to stop. The people who risk
violent assault deserve better. It's high
time that those people get treated fairly.
It's high time that they get treated like
human beings who deserve to be'
compensated (in money and time earned
for retirement) for doing the dangerous,
dirty work that most folk won't do.

I'm falling for this time of year,

whatever you call it


Fall is in the air, yippee.
Autumn has got to be one of my favorite
seasons while it doesn't officially begin
until Saturday, there are sure signs its
approach is imminent: Lows in the '50s
and '60s, leaves beginning to turn rich
hues of yellow and red, loquats and
persimmons ripening and the occasional
crow interrupting the early evening sky.
The fall wildflowers are in full bloom -
we've had a whole herd of butterflies
sampling the mistflower, goldenrod and,
not surprisingly, orange butterfly weeds.
It all promises wood-filled smoke
curling from chimneys, cool, misty
mornings, apple cider and warm pumpkin
bread fresh from the oven. Days are
getting shorter, twilight doesn't linger like
it did mid-summer. It's a storied time of
year associated with harvest and
community gatherings, as well as being a
way to mark the passage of time.
Some ancient civilizations used autumns
to calculate the year, while the-Ainglo-
Saxons used winters to do the same. In
alchemy, Autumn is the time or season
when the operation of the philosopher's
stone is brought to maturity and
perfection.
The philosopher's stone is a fabled
substance that supposedly could turn
inexpensive metals into gold and/or create
a concoction that would make people

I didn't marry The Iron Chef


Cathy bought a cook book.
I liked to have fainted. And when I came
to my senses, but before I could'think
clearly, I blurted out, "It's too late!"
"It's thirty-two years too late!"
I took Cathy to meet my grandmother
before we married. Granny, of course, as
was her custom when I got close, jumped
up and immediately went to cooking those
fried apple turnovers that would absolutely
melt in you mouth. I urged Cathy to get in
the kitchen and watch. "See how she lays
them out. How much butter. Where, when
and how to add the apples. What
temperature and how long she leaves 'em
on the stove. Be sure to observe down to
the littlest detail." I'm thinking long term
here....
I showed Cathy how evenly the crust was
browned on both sides. I cut one in two, so
she could smell the apples and cinnamon. I
ran my finger across the little indentures
granny somehow cut in the edges as she
sealed the top and bottom together. I let her
taste one.
Granny died in 1984. I haven't had a real
fried apple turnover since.
I told Cathy Mom's secret to the green
beans was the copper pot. And the biscuits
had to be cut out with the open end of a
Calumet Baking Powder can. Mom always
melted the cheese before mixing it with the
pimento. And the raccoon needed to be
scalded before you barbequed it.
Cathy judiciously waited until after the
wedding to tell me what she really thought
about eating a raccoon....scalded, flame
broiled, saut6ed, skillet fried, barbequed or
otherwise! And fairness compels me to
report that she didn't lead me into this
relationship with any false pretenses. She
told me right up front that she couldn't
cook, "Mother did the cooking; I looked
after my younger brother and sisters. I
never had time to learn to cook." Listen, I
had already spent a few evenings with Jo
Blair, Bobby Brown and Gay Foley. I
understood perfectly.
And Cathy was accepting me with all my
imperfections. It would be fun to work


through our culinary inadequacies. I didn't
give it another thought. The marriage was
on a sultry hot afternoon--way too hot to
think about eating. I had a baseball game
that afternoon and it was pretty late when it
finished. We stopped by our house and
Mom fixed us a snack before we took off
for St. Louis.
We spent four days watching the
Cardinals play. And I filled up on ballpark
hot dogs, pretzels and salted peanuts. If we
got hungry before or after the game we
were in luck, there was a Kentucky Fried
Chicken just down the street from our
hotel. When we returned Aunt Barbara had
us for supper. Cathy's Mom fixed us
several meals. And we naturally ate quite a
bit at our house.
We lived off the various families for
almost a month before they "caught on."
We finally had to go home. Cathy got up
early the first Saturday we were alone,
"Would you like some pancakes?"
"Sounds good."
They looked like real pancakes. They
smelled alright.I had a little trouble
cutting'em up but I blamed it on a dull
knife. I poured on a little syrup on top and
threw in a mouthful...... People, those
things had some kind of rubbery
consistency to'em and they began to
expand as I chewed! It was sorta like eating
a discarded radiator hose with some of the
antifreeze soaked in!
You talk about being in a pickle! I
couldn't upset my new bride over a few
pancakes....and I couldn't hardly choke'em
down! And all the while the pile in my
mouth is growing larger, larGER..... She
turned and gave me the "how are they
look" but I couldn't answer. By then I had
turned blue and was falling backwards into
the kitchen floor....
The boys came along and Cathy got much
better. Josh liked Fruit Loops. Jesse was a
Chocolate Cocoa Puffs man. We loved
spaghetti night because it could actually be
eaten. And she did an asparagus casserole

younger. It was something of a holy grail
in Western alchemy. From a spiritual -
alchemy point of view, making the
philosopher's stone would bring
enlightenment upon the maker and
conclude the great work a masterpiece
associated with whatever the owner's
strongest skill was.
Fall began to replace Autumn as the term
to describe the season in North American
English in the 16th century. The word is
likely a derivative of the Old English fill
or feallan. It's likely a shortened version
of Middle English expressions like "fall of
the leaf" or "fall of the year."
During the 17th century, when
immigration to the English colonies was at
its peak, the new settlers took their
language with them. While the term Fall
gradually obsolesced in Britain, it became
the preferred term in North America, at
least in conversation.
Before the 16th century "harvest" was
the term usually used to refer to the
season. However as more people gradually
moved from working the land to living in
towns, the word became to refer to the
actual activity of reaping, rather than the
time of year, and Fall and Autumn began
to replace it.
Whatever you call it, it's a welcome
reprieve from the Hades-like heat we've
had this summer. Enjoy.

a national disaster

911 S.O.S. "We need help"
There's a national disaster in Quincy. Calling all
policemen, firemen, Red Cross, FEMA, White
House, president, governor. We have a national
disaster on our hands. We also have a name for it.
It's not Katrina, Helene nor Kate. The name of this
disaster is T.E.C. Talquin Electric or the City of
Quincy.
Some of us are drowning in our bills others are
being pulled down the drain.
Everything is falling down around us. If anyone is
in hearing or reading distance, "Help us please!"
This storm don't have a certain season to visit us.
When it strike, it strikes year around, month to
month. If your bill wasn't high this time, that means
you are in the eye of the storm. There's a backlash
coming.
We keep asking for help but we are 'being treated
like those people in New Orleans. A.P.B. Calling all
concerned citizens pray for us, because these bills are
killing us.

I'm a little

worried about

Popeye

Every 8 year old kid in America
was vindicated this week.
And every mother and every
school lunchroom supervisor
caught it on the chin.
"Eat your spinach."
Ha! Ha! Ha!
We didn't even have spinach at
our house when I was a kid.
Lettuce, sure. But not spinach. I
didn't even know what it was until
I went to school and found this
disgusting pile of green, slimy
stuff on my plate along with the
macaroni and cheese and fish
sticks.
But our lunchroom supervisor,
who was also o:'r --
second gradle /
teacher, knew. And
she knew it :t. -
supposed to be
good for us. I ne e "
saw her eat any '-t a
though. And .
teachers probably
got immunization shots for such
stuff, too.
Mrs. McCoy would walk the
aisles' between our tables just
looking (and secretly hoping, I
think) for one of us
unsophisticated enough or
unappreciative enough or just
stupid enough to admit we hadn't
at least tried a bite of spinach.
The rule was: you can't go
outside to play until you try
everything on your plate. There
was no room for negotiation
either. If the softball team had to
play without a shortstop, so be it.
Mrs. McCoy was, in this case
anyway, the Commissioner of
Major League Softball for
Hutsonville Elementary School.
There were no fines, but the
suspension was ironclad. You
were out of action until you dug
into the spinach.
Even our principal (who was an
old school friend of my mothers!)
seemed to be on her side. I never
saw him eat any spinach either.
My mom's attitude was that if
they gave it to you at school, it had
to be good for you. Eat it.
And, of course, she and every
other mother in America in the
mid-1950s couldn't talk about
spinach without bringing up
Popeye. That mighty "Sailor Man"
actually chugged the stuff. And
when he did, muscles literally
popped out all over his body.
Of course, so did those tattoos of
ship's anchors, but Mom seemed
to have missed that part. What she
did catch was that instant and
irrefutable connection between
spinach and a healthy body. No
teeth. No hair. He smoked. But he
was the poster guy for healthy
living. Go figure.
Of course that spinach bears little
resemblance to the leafy green
vegetable the food police put
under arrest last week. This stuff
actually resembles a plant. I can
envision it growing in somebody's
garden. It HELPS a salad. Add a
few cherry tomatoes, some red
cabbage, grated cheese, a little
onion and the right dressing and
I'm a fan!
But what happened was E. coli.
That rascal's so bad his momma
'didn't want him to have a first
name. Just an initial. How he
managed to take up residence with
the spinach after a good hosing
down and bacterial rinse is beyond
me. But he did.
I figure E. coli couldn't survive


the school cafeteria of my
childhood. Those lunchroom
ladies in the hair nets handled
tougher stuff than that.
But I am worried about Popeye.
Toot. Toot.

Gadsden students among those receiving

TCC Foundation scholarships for 2006


Thirty-two middle and high school students
from Tallahassee Community College's tri-county
service district got a head start on their college
careers during the TCC Foundation's 2006
Scholarship Awards Ceremony.
Each was awarded one of two prepaid tuition
scholarships a two-year Challenge Scholarship,
allowing the student to attend TCC for two years,
or a 2+2 Take Stock In Children (TSIC)
Scholarship, which enables students to attend
TCC for two years followed by two years at any
public university within the State- of Florida after
graduating from TCC.
The students, grades 6 through 11, attend
schools in Leon, Gadsden and. Wakulla counties.
Earlier this year, an additional 15 students from
Gretna Elementary School and George W. Monroe
Elementary School received either Challenge or
TSIC scholarships.
Motivational speaker Gerald Jones, from the
University of Central Florida, delivered, the
keynote address.
Jim Croteau, interim Leon County
Superintendent, presented the students' certifi-
cates, along with Jones and Craig Fletcher, TCC


CROP Administrator. Dr. Barbara Sloan, TCC
Vice' President for Academic Affairs and Dr.
Glendon Forgey, TCC Vice President for
Administrative Affairs, also attended the ceremo-
ny. According to Fletcher, 2006 marked the 12th
class of TCC's CROP students who received
Challenge or TSIC scholarships through the TCC
Foundation, CROP and Project STARS of the
Florida Prepaid College Foundation.
To date over 200 CROP seniors with prepaid
scholarships have a 96-percent graduation rate
from high school and an 88-percent college enroll-
ment rate. Forty-seven students have received an
AA degree or higher. In addition, over 75 parents
of CROP scholarship recipients have either gone
back to college or attended for the first time.
TCC also recognized three individuals during
Thursday's ceremony. Willie Givens (Gadsden)
and Wanda Lewis (Leon) were honored for their
volunteer work in their respective counties.
Fletcher was presented the Eagle Saver Award,
given annually to an individual who has made a
significant impact on the lives of the students in
the CROP program in years past.

Gretna, Ford reach city park


grant writing fee agreement


by Leslie Roberts
Times News Editor


Gretna City Commissioners agreed Sept. 6 on
an amount to pay the grant writer who helped
secure funding for Park Street Park.
Auburn Ford, who wrote grants for phases III
and IV of the park's construction, told commis-
sioners last month he had a verbal agreement with
commissioners on payment for his services. He
was not paid, however, and asked commissioners
during their regular meeting Sept. 6 for $2,500 per
grant.
While that's a little more than they had in mind,
the two parties were able to work out an equitable
solution during the meeting.
After some discussion about figures and the
amount of legwork that went into the grant appli-
cation, commissioners voted to pay Ford $5,500:
$1,000 for each of the two grants already funded,
$500 for the application under review and $2,000
more if that grant is funded.
Asked whether he could live with that amount,
Ford said he could.
"In Quincy, we have a nice facility and I
thought we could have the same here," he said. "I
would like to continue so it could be the gem I
know it could be."
In other business, commissioners voted to


approve a retirement plan for former employee
Marvin McMillon, who was hired during a time
the city was not participating in a retirement plan.
Commissioners decided to pay for two years'
credit in the Florida retirement program for
McMillon.
And City Manager Antonio Jefferson
announced Gretna's Fall Festival will take place
Saturday, Nov. 4 at City Hall. The festival will last
from 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. and feature a soul food
cookoff, musical entertainment, dancing and ven-
dors' booths. There is also a car show tentatively
scheduled.
In other action, commissioners:
Approved a MediaCom property lease agree-
ment pending modification to the contract struc-
ture.
Voted to accept an audit for fiscal year 2003.
Approved a grant application to the Florida
Department of Environmental Protection under
the Florida Recreation Development Assistance
Program for Gretna Central Park.
Heard. a progress report from KMR
Consultants, who are working on a water and
sewer services plan, relocation of police and fire
services, a staff classification plan, Industrial Park
marketing, code enforcement issues, finance,
records retention, grants and other, general con-
sulting services.

Members of theMichael Moore Masonic Lodge in Quincy


Legion Hall donated to Masonic Lodge


By Alice DuPont
Times Editor


You've seen it and no doubt
have attended a function or two
there: the American Legion Hall
at the end of East Washington
Street. The building changed
hands several months ago, and
new owners, Michael Moore
Masonic Lodge, have spent the
past few months fixing up the
gift they received from the
American Legion Post 84.
"We've done quite a bit of
work," Charles Hayes, presi-
dent, said. "The floors have
been replaced, restrooms have
been refurbished, and fresh
coats of paint on all of the
walls," he said.
They still have other things
they plan to do. Hayes said the
members, about 40, did all of
the work themselves.
The next project is'to tackle
the kitchen. "But right now I
think the fellas need a breather,"
he said.
The lodge had been meeting
in rented space for the past year
or more. "We had no place to
store our things and really no
place we could call home. The
American Legion stepped in and
said they would donate the
building and it was a godsend,"
he said.
As fewer and fewer members


.. ,





. '


Members of the American legion and the Michael Moore Masonic Lodge cut the ribbon on the
lodge's new home, the old American Legion Post #84


of Post 84 were able to attend
meetings, Hayes said they no
longer needed the large build-
ing.
"We have it to the point that
we are able to rent it out and
make enough to continue paying
for renovations as we go. The
community will have another
facility to hold meetings and
other functions and we have a
place of our own," he said.
Lodge members hope to
apply to have the building desig-
nated as a historic landmark. It
was built in the early 1940s.

County giving seniors


some special attention


during hurricane season


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

While so far this has not been the hurricane
season that the weather service predicted,
Emergency Management Director Shawn Wood
and others in Gadsden County are not sitting back.
Wood makes no secret of admitting that he is wor-
ried about the county's elderly when it comes to
hurricane preparedness.
"My fear is that they will not take it seriously.
They will not evacuate or seek safe shelter with
family or friends. Some of them can be pretty
stubborn and want to stay at home," he said.
Recently Wood, Pat Peacock froth the
Emergency Medical Services, Mike Joseph and
Earlene Taylor from the American Red Cross and
Katrine McSwain, interim director of the Gadsden
County Senior Citizens Center met to brainstorm
ways to help senior citizens in time of trouble.
"The thing is we cannot wait until a hurricane
is knocking on the door. We have to act now. We
have to make information available now so that
they won't panic in case of an event," Taylor said.
Peacock said that she has a list of elderly peo-
ple she calls before and after a hurricane or severe
storm. McSwain said it would help if she also
added the names she has to the list. "A lot of the
clients we serve live alone, but we have contact


with them through Meals on Wheels and other
programs, so we have a list," she said.
The committee plans to asked high school stu-
dents in the community who want to accumulate
volunteer service hours to call senior citizens three
days before a hurricane is predicted to make land-
fall near Gadsden County. There are 10 telephone
lines at the sheriff's office from which the calls
can be made.
But Deputy Joe Hall, who has been on patrol
for many years said he regularly met elderly peo-
ple with no telephone service. "How do we reach
those people?" he asked.
The group explored meeting with church lead-
ers and going to communities to recruit neighbors
who will be willing to check on the elderly in
their neighborhood.
Another concern was providing service once
the storm has passed. "We know that we have to
be prepared for 72 hours when we may be cut off.
I'm hoping to get churches in various communi-
ties to act as holding places for food, Water, blan-
kets, flashlights.
"People can usually get to a community
church, but they may not always be able to make
it to a distribution point, especially if there are a lot
of downed trees," Joseph said.
The group hopes to unveil the local "hurricane
plan for the elderly"' within a few weeks.

Girl Scouts embark on fall

program activity sales


The Girl Scout Council of the
Apalachee Bend (GSCAB)
embarked on its annual Fall
Program Acitivity sale Sept. 16
when area Girl Scouts will take
preorders for a variety of deli-
cious candy and nut products.
Preorders continue through Oct.
1. All proceeds, after paying the
nut company, stay in the 15-
county area the council serves.
A portion of the money is used
to support council properties,
camping, and Girl Scout pro-
gram activities. A share of what
remains goes to the troop level,
where girls decide how to spend
it, thus further encouraging goal-
setting and leadership abilities.
The Girl Scout Fall Product
program activity is an important
part of Girl Scouting. In addi-
tion to providing funding for
troops, the program activities
are a Girl Scout's introduction to
the world of business. It is a
wonderful opportunity for girls
to learn financial responsibility
as well as how to plan, set goals,
market and deliver a product.
The program activity sale is also
an opportunity for troops to earn
Try-Its, Badges, and Interest
Patches.
Products preordered will be
delivered between Oct. 28 -
Nov. 12. They make excellent
holiday gifts for family, friends,
and employees.
This year's sale promises to,
be a success with a line-up of
tasty treats including Mint
Trefoils, milk chocolate filled
with creamy mint centers in the
shape of a Girl Scout Trefoil in a
beautiful camp tin; Pecan
Supremes, classy combination
of creamy caramel and pecans
covered in rich, milk chocolate
' in a Happy Holiday Tin; and a
Cashew Lover's Delight with
gourmet cashews, delicately
roasted and lightly salted to per-
fection. Other favorites include
chocolate-covered raisins,
chocolate-covered almonds,


cranberry trail mix, malted milk
balls, peanut butter cups, honey
roasted peanuts, spicy Cajun
mix and Dulce de Leche.

East Gadsden runs by Arnold


Jags win district opener 35-8


by Joe Ferolito
East Gadsden head coach Scott
Anderson felt the Arnold Marlins would
come into Jaguar Field Friday night and
try to ram the ball down the home teams
throat eating up the clock along the way.
That's exactly what Arnold did. It didn't
work. Mainly because the East Gadsden
defense wouldn't allow the Marlins to
finish off their drives with points. That
along with the fact Arnold couldn't con-


tain the home team speed led to a 35-8
Jaguar win in the district opener for East
Gadsden.
Arnold did manage to control the ball
early and that led to a scoreless first quar-
ter. Before halftime the Jaguars had
struck for a pair of touchdowns to take a
14-0 lead. Micah Brown passed for both
of the scores hitting Patrick Smith for a
21-yard touchdown and Darius Jackson
for a 20- yard score. Hector Perez


punched through the p.a.t. kicks follow-
ing the touchdowns.
East Gadsden upped the count to 21-0
in the third quarter when Jackson rushed
9 yards for 6 points and Perez again con-
verted. The Jaguars then wrapped things
up with a pair of fourth quarter t.d.'s, the
first coming on Jackson's 2- yard plunge
and the second on a 4 yard ram by Ronald
Gordon.
Arnold got on the board late in the
game when Kadarius Pope ran in a 5 yard
touchdown.
Jackson finished the night with 181
yards rushing and 30 receiving. Brown


passed for 105 yards and ran for 32 more.
The defense got big games from
Gordon and Brandon Bridges who were
both in on 14 tackles. Mike Williams had
a pair of tackles for losses and Montez
Fryson recorded 6 tackles.
"It was good to get the district win."
Anderson said. "We've made some
improvement but we still have a ways to
go to get ready for the meat of our sched-
ule."That comes up starting next week
when the Jaguars travel to Panama City
Bay. They're off this week enjoying their
3-1 start.


Jackson gets win number 150


Panthers get by Sneads


It was a big win in so many ways.
First, it broke a three game losing streak.
Second, it was a win in the first district
contest of the season. Third, it was Coach
Robert Jackson's 150th career victory. To
him no doubt the last reason was the least
one to celebrate the victory about.
West Gadsden needed the 10-3 defen-


sive win over Sneads to get a victory
after an early season string of losses. The
fact that it came over district rival Sneads
was also easy to take.
The hard fought win saw Sneads take
a 3-0 lead into the half on a 25 yard
Kevin Lawson field goal.
West Gadsden bounced back after the


half and scored all their points in the third
quarter. Jose Calderon tied the game with
a 23 yard field goal mid-way the period.
Ron Roberts then ripped off a 22 yard t.d.
run later in the stanza to give the Panthers
a 9-3 lead before Calderon's p.a.t. kick
made it 10-3.
Burns highlighted the offensive effort
with 144 yards rushing. It was the defen-
sive effort that made the difference. That
defense was led by Gary Brown and


Marvin Horn.
Brown had 10 tackles and was in on a
pair of sacks. Horn had a big intercep-
tion.
"I feel fortunate to have been around
long enough to get to the 150 milestone."
Jackson said. "It's nice to know you can
stay in this business that long." Jackson
will try to get number 151 this Friday
night when the Panthers host Freeport in
another district game.


RFM golf team

off to good start

with 6-4 record
By Susie Morris
The Munroe boy's golf team is off to a good
season, sporting a 6-4 record. With the excep-
tion of Leon and Wakulla, their toughest oppo-
nent to date, however, has been the rain. The
team has lost two matches to weather.
Senior six-year starter John Dooner and jun-
ior Ben Young are battling for the number one
spot, averaging 39.6 and 37.8, respectively.
Sophomore John-Hilton Revell is also play-
ing well in the number three spot, shooting 40.3.
Finally Walker Cox, who splits time with foot-
ball, is averaging 44.6. Sophomore Sam Young
is averaging 48.3.
Coach Kevin Smith feels that if the top three
players can each consistently stay in the 30's
that they have a real chance at finishing in the
top two or three in their Class A District 2.
Last week the Bobcats defeated John Paul,
North Florida Christian, FAMU and Rickards.
The team's only loss last week was to a very
strong Wakulla team. This week Munroe is at
Chiles with NFC on Monday at 4 pm and at The
Golf Club of Quincy on the 21st playing
Lincoln, Maclay, and JPII at 3:30 p.m.

WGHS cadets excel
Maj. J. Martinez and Sgt. Maj. J. Duddley have every right to be proud of WGHS' JROTC
Squadron. Not only did the cadets score 97 percent with the US Army's evaluation in May, but
also they have started off this school year with a fantastic beginning.
On Thursday, Sept. 7 WGHS' JROTC Third Platoon cadets participated in an "Oral
Presentation Drill". Their task was to write and present a summary of a news article (varying
titles) in 20 minutes to an audience of their peers. Each cadet was given a copy of the Gadsden
County Times or the Tallahassee Democrat. They were critiqued as being Distinguished,
Proficient, Apprentice, or Novice.
Their evaluators were: SPC Emmanuel Aragon, SSG Kenneth Roberts, and SSG Alpha
Jenkins. When asked to evaluate this activity, Cadet Pablo Escobar said he "feels reading current
events helps to improve vocabulary and comprehension skills and gives cadets an awareness of
real-world events." Cadet SFC Sydonie Hover, an eleventh grader stated, "We settle for nothing
less than the best in JROTC." SFC. Hover is most grateful for an opportunity to participate as a
platoon leader.
Participants were Andrea Jimenez, Sharenia Reglin, Sandy Linares, Syndonie Hover, Saul
Jimenez, Erica Goodson, Angela Fussell, JaQuan Goodson, Sherita Dawkins, Grey Peterson,
Pablo Escobar, Heidilberto Garcia, and Quadasia Moore.


USDA reminds producers of deadline


Farmers and, ranchers have
until Sept. 29 to apply for four
2005 hurricane disaster programs,
announced the. county executive
director of the USDA's Farm
Service Agency (FSA) in Gadsden
County.
Sign-up began on May 17 for
the four programs, which provide
aid to producers who suffered
losses due to the destructive hurri-
canes of 2005.
"We are doing everything we
can at FSA to help farmers recov-
er from the devastation brought by
last year's hurricanes," said
Sellars. "I'm encouraging all pro-
ducers to contact their local FSA
office as soon as possible so they


can enroll in these programs
before the deadline, because there
are no late filed provisions for
these programs."
The four programs Livestock
Indemnity Program (LIP), Feed
Indemnity Program (FIP),
Hurricane Indemnity Program
(HIP), and Tree Indemnity
Program (TIP) are funded
through Section 32 of the Act of
August 24, 1935. Agriculture
Secretary Mike Johannes author-
ized the use of $250 million from
Section 32 funds in October 2005
for crop disaster, livestock, tree,
and aquaculture assistance.
The Livestock Indemnity
Program provides payments to eli-


gible livestock owners and con-
tract growers who incurred the
death of livestock due to the hurri-
canes. The Feed Indemnity
Program provides payments to eli-
gible livestock owners and cash
lessees who suffered feed losses or
increased feed costs due to the
hurricanes. Hurricane Indemnity
Program provides payments to eli-
gible producers who suffered crop
losses and received either a
Federal Crop Insurance
Corporation crop insurance
indemnity or an FSA Noninsured
Crop Disaster Assistance Program
(NAP) payment. Due to how eligi-
bility is determined for HIP, all
producers who either filed a claim
with a re-insurance company or
received an indemnity must con-
tact the county FSA office prior to
September 29. The Tree
Indemnity Program provides pay-
ments to eligible owners of com-
mercially grown fruit trees, nut
trees, bushes, and vines that pro-
duce an annual crop and were lost
or damaged due to the hurricanes.

nurses, social service
counselors, treatment and
rehabilitation specialists and
supervisors, teachers, human
services positions, .and other
positions at the hospital.
Wynn is upset by the turn of
events, given the fact that just
two weeks ago James Smith died
of an apparent heat attack after he
collapsed just minutes after
helping a co-worker who was
attacked by a patient.
"Now DCF, which has no
affection of its workers and
' apparently little more respect for
legislators and their staff, is
allowing private companies to
earn a buck off of this dangerous
situation and 'against the express
wishes of yourself and the
legislature," Wynn wrote in a
letter to Bean.
"The workers at Florida State
Hospital beg of you to exercise
your legislative oversight to rein
in this rogue department and
force them to make real
investments in staffing to cure the
long-term neglect at the crown
jewel of Florida's mental health
system."
Wynn is uniquely aware of the
problems at FSH. Before
becoming president of AFSCME
she was employed there for 28
years.
Wynn suspects that a deal was
cut between Bush and Bean. "He
(Bush) has tried to break the
union. The Florida First didn't


make it. He made 16,000 of my
(union) people career exempt and
some of them weren't supervising
anyone, but we're still here," she
said.
There is no question that new
beds are needed. Counties,
including Gadsden, are
complaining on a daily basis that
their jails are overcrowded
because inmates should be in a
residential treatment facility
instead of jail.

Budget
Continued from Page I
decision to keep the millage
rate at 10 mills won out.
"If Gadsden County raised the
rate by one mill we would only
raise $1.5 million but if Leon
County raised their rate by one
mill, it would raise them about
$19 million. We have to provide
the same things as they do," he
said.
"I believe in the past years we
did not spend our money wisely,
whether it was medicine or
insurance, because we took care
of our friends. For the first time
since I have been here, we are
delivering services to the people
who need them," Dixon said.
The budget was approved
intact, at $37.6 million, despite a
request from Sheriff Morris
Young for another $3 million on
top of the $6.5 million he is
already getting. While Young
made a good case for. his
department, commissioners were
not swayed.
He said he wanted to give
deputies and corrections officers
a living wage. As an example he
said he has four dispatchers, all
of whom have more than one job.
"I was at Flying J Sunday and
two of my. dispatchers waited on
me. One of them told me that the
Flying J job was just one of four
she held down," Young said.
He said it didn't feel right to
him that when he handed an
officer a paycheck he knew they
had to go out looking for a
second job.
Young thanked the Board for
the 30 new leased vehicles but
added that last weekend the
county made $32,000.00 at the
auction for 18 vehicles.
"That's all we got because they
were no good. Fourteen of them
we had to take over there because
they weren't worth anything and
that's what our officers were
driving around in answering calls
from our citizens and we did it,"
he said.
"We need money. I need $3
million," he said.
Jim Kellum, president of the
Gadsden Senior Citizens Services
Board of Directors, asked the
county to increase its allocation
from $50,000 to $150,000
annually.
"We have about 8,000 senior
citizens and about 4,000 of them
are in need of some kind of
services. We have people who
have been volunteering for 10
years and that's good. But up
until this year we have been
paying some of our staff $6 per
hour, we've been able to get it up
to $8 per hour this year," Kellum
said.
But, he said, the center needs
money to provide services to the
elderly. Sometimes the center
must wait up to 90 days for
reimbursement. In the meantime,
the services have to be met for
the clients.
"Maybe the department heads
shouldn't get that $5,200 raise.
The senior citizens need the
money. They have earned it by
paying taxes in this county all of
these years. It's money that is
well spent. This time I hope you
won't let them down," he said.
Harvey Sweeney, a retired state
employee, took another shot at
the department heads' pay raises.
"I have never heard of such a
large increase in salaries for new
personnel. If you have an
evaluation system, you can't tell
me that all of them are doing the
same. I assure you I never got a
$100 a week raise in all the time I
worked in state government," he
said.
No one touched the pay
increase for department heads


issue. Commissioners, however,
promised to revisit the request of
Young and Kellum each month in
hopes to redirecting some money
if possible. The final budget
passed, 4-1, with Watson casting
the dissenting vote.

School raises

Gadsden County Schools
Superintendent Reginald James
said. "Hopefully, next year we
can do the same."
Burdette said the proposal
represents a 6 percent package.
Support personnel were to vote
on the proposal throughout the
week, and. the School Board is
scheduled to vote on it at its next
regular meeting Sept. 26.
"All in all, I guess the key to
negotiations is both sides
knowing what the other side
wants," Burdette said. "These are
tremendous language changes
that will lead to a new respect
between the district and
paraprofessionals."

respond as soon as they get
back into the county. In some
cases, supervisors have become
first responders. The mileage is
up, gas has doubled," he said.
And while the urgent care unit
is good for the county,
ambulances will still be making
trips to Tallahassee just as
frequently. "We can't transport
anyone there because of the
insurance and medicare and
medicaid, they won't pay unless
we transport to an emergency
room. That's not an emergency
room, it's an urgent care facility.
If someone goes there and has a
heart attack, we can pick them
up," Beasley said. The
emergency calls will still be
taken directly to Tallahassee.
The urgent care unit will also
operate on a limited schedule.
But officials are hopeful that the
urgent care unit will help pave
the way for the hospital to
become fully operational in the
not to distant future provided, as
Brown puts it, the moon and the
stars align.

One of the issues he plans to

to read the meters again. But we
have found in most cases of re-

He advised that customers take a
look at their bills for the past year
and make comparisons. The city
also offers a free enegry audit
service-.
He said he is waiting for an
analysis so that this problem does
not repeat itself. Meter readers
were given two days of training
last month before they were sent
out into the field.
"There is no reason for the bills
not to be back on track in the
next cycle. We've gotten the
issue corrected and we are
working overtime to make sure
that cycle 2 is correct," said Ann
Sherman, customer service
director.

TCC grant provides

recreation, leisure

for disabled
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 participa-
tion in the community.
Both the College and the Department have col-
laborated for years with the FDOA, which was
founded in 1993 by David Jones, a TCC graduate
who had been severely injured in a hunting acci-
dent. 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.
Recreation and leisure 'help people with dis-
abilities enter the workforce by promoting well-
ness, increasing stamina, and reducing secondary
health conditions. By the same token, the pro-
gram enhances mental and emotional wellness.

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

home gets a

second life


Tallahassee builder

admires old Quincy

homes; plans move



by Leslie Roberts
Times News Editor

Looking for an antebellum home to
restore, Brian Will and his wife drove right by
the house at 339 N. Jackson St. in Quincy.
They talked to a realtor about another
nearby, and admired some of the other homes
lining the quiet Quincy street.
Then, they asked real estate appraiser Mari
VanLandingham to help educate them on the
local real estate market.
That's when they discovered the 113-year-
old home they bought in August.
"My wife and I have had a dream of living
in an historic antebellum home for years," he
said. "There's no inventory of those houses
any more in Tallahassee."
As owner of New South Homes, an award-
winning construction and remodeling compa-
ny based in Tallahassee, Will saw the house's
potential right away.
"Restoring a piece of history is a rare
opportunity," Will said. "The F. P. May home
is a significant part of Quincy's past, and
breathing new life into this fabulous home is
a challenge that we take great pleasure in. We
look forward to restoring this home for fami-
lies to enjoy for 100 more years."
The Franklin Pierce May home is a tradi-
tional two-story, turn of the century home.
Built in 1893 on land that once housed the
cottage in which May was born, the home
features five bedrooms, four bathrooms,
seven fireplaces, an expansive wrap-around
front porch, a service entrance, beautiful
wood floors, period architectural appoint-
ments, a substantial custom staircase and a
second-story balcony Will calls a "Romeo
and Juliet" balcony.
Previous owners enclosed it and added
windows; he plans to open it again to restore
the home to its original look. A second bal-
cony rests on the opposite end of the house
off one of the upstairs bedrooms.
Will and his wife, C.J., began working
together to remodel homes they lived in
shortly after they were married. They restored
their Betton Hills home in 2002 and several
before that.
"As we did these houses, we just discov-
ered it was something we both enjoyed
doing," he said.
The F. P. May house was mostly uninhab-
ited over the past 23 years and served as a
second home for May's granddaughter, who
gave the Wills a copy of May's memoirs.
Written between 1920 and 1936, the memoir
gives an account of May's life as a tailor and
his move from the N. Jackson Street home to
6 miles outside of town, where he took up
farming.
Renovations the Wills are undertaking
include upgrading the home's mechanical,
electrical and plumbing requirements; recon-
figuring the kitchen and dining areas to max-
imize and improve functionality; upgrading
interior and exterior construction appoint-
ments to increase efficiency; restoring both
original Romeo and Juliet second-story bal-
conies, and refurbishing the front porch to
resemble its original 1893 design.
They expect to have the renovations fin-
ished by May, and plan to live in Quincy with
their three sons, Christopher Blackburn, 13,
Zachary Will, 9, and Owen Will, 6.

home is expected to be finished in May. (Photo by Leslie Roberts)

For we did not know that morning that God was going to call your name.
In lift we loved you dearly, in death we do the same,
It broke our hearts to lose you; you did not o alone,
For part of us went with yo; the day God called you home.
You left us peaceful menmoties; your love is still out guide.
And though we cannot see you, you an' always at our side.
Our family chain is broken, and nothing seems the same,
But as God calls us one by one, the chain will link aqain.

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.

If you or a loved one developed a smoking related illness

between 1990 and 2000, call your Florida Consumer justice Attorneys

for a free consultation.

a Fall, or autumn is the third of four seasons that we experience in a calendar year. The first day of autumn :oncides with the autumnal equinox, or when the sun is
directly over the equator in the Southern Hemisphere. In the Northern Hemisphere the autumnal equinox ocQurs around September 23rd and in the Southern Hemisphere it
occurs around March 21st. For this reason autumn months in the Northern Hemisphere are usually late September, October, November, and sometimes early December. In
the Southern Hemisphere the autumn months are opposite, being from late March until Early June. The reason for the difference is due to the distance from the sun each
hemisphere is. The farther away from the sun, the cooler and shorter the days will become.
Fall is a very pleasant time of year. The temperatures are cooler than summer, but are not cold. Many activities occur at this time due to the weather. Oktoberfest is
celebrated in many parts of the world as well as Thanksgiving in November. The American football season begins in the early fall, as well as many other sport seasons.
Outdoor activities are popular, such as hayrides and campfires. Animals begin to gather food and make preparations for the winter months in the fall. Birds begin to migrate
south for the winter and farmers harvest their crops. The scenery changes with the leaves turning vivid colors of orange and red, before they fall off of the trees and acorns
fall to the ground. i cro s":

fIL-k' block
Jeremy Danner, Age 7 wants to know
"Why do the leaves turn orange in the fall?"
Thanks Jeremy! Leaves are green in color due
to the presence of :hloroph:dl in them. Chi.rophyll
is what captures 1he -unligrhi, in turn giving plants
life. When autumn arives, trees prepare themselves
for the winter, mucih like animals do. Since the tree
no longer needs the leaves, due to the lesser
amount of sunlight, it begins to shed it's leaves.
Before the leaves fall off of the tree, it loses some
of it's chlorophyll, and in turn reveals pigments of
-red, yellow, and orange. Don't forget to send
r ..your questions to kidsblock@atozkidsnews.coml

Paul F. Joyner, Ph.D.
The editor of a newspaper sent
Bruce Barton to a hospital to get an
interview with Russell Conwell, a


great Christian philanthropist,
who was not expected to live very
long. Mr. Barton found him
propped up on pillows, and he
hesitated to ask him the question
his editor wanted him to ask.
Finally
Conwell,
knowing the
reporter was
after
something
special, said,
"Bruce, come I
to the point.
What do you l I
want 0 to wA
know?"
The reporter edged his chair
closer to the bed. "Russ, all the
world knows about the 1,700
boys you sent to school, and the
thousands of times you gave your
speech, ACRES OF
DIAMONDS. Now, my editor
wants to know if you have any
fear as you come to. the close of
life."
Conwell smiled and replied:
"When I was a boy of 14, we
lived on a farm in New England.
My father had to leave for the day
and told me, 'Son, there are three
jobs that need to be done: the
bottom laed is ready to plow, the
cattle are out because of a broken
fence, and the wagon needs
greasing so I can haul corn
tomorrow. Do the best you can.'
The next evening I came dragging
myself into the house, just as my
father arrived home. I told him
proudly that I had finished the
work. My father said, 'You mean
you finished all three jobs?' Then
he put his arm around my
shoulders squeezed a little then
he said: 'A good day's work
Russ."'
Conwell continued, "Bruce, I
think when I stand before my
heavenly Father, He will place
His arm around my shoulders and
say, 'A good day's work, Russ, a
good day's work.'"
Later, Bruce Barton said, "I
tiptoed out of the rooin. I felt like
I had been on holy ground."
The question we need to ask is
"How will it be with us when we
stand before our heavenly
Father?"
I invite you to visit The Berean
Church located south of the old
high school building in
Chattahoochee. You may contact
Dr. Joyner at (850) 674-2633.

Cooperative learning is definitely a strategy for comprehension
in the classroom! During the 6th grade assembly, Ms. Lighfoot's
class exhibited skits that were comprised by students on classroom
rules and expectations, word of the day, the code of conduct hand-
book, and important FCAT facts. The students were placed into
cooperative learning groups, and were given a topic. All topics
were centered around everything that they had learned since the first
day of the 2006-07 school term.

All of the students in Pre-K through fifth grade were given a

about the Hispanic Culture and Heritage. All of the papers were
great, however, we could only choose one winner from each grade
level. Hats off to the best writers in their grade levels!!
The students that were chosen are as follows: Back row: (left to

Nobody said learning new technology was an easy job. Gadsden
County has gone to a web based Individual Educational Plan system
(IEP), known as Tienet. Teacherswere given an overview of the sys-
tem in July. But now it's time for the teachers to show their skill
level and it's a whole new arena when teachers are expected to gen-
erate an IEP on their own. According to Mrs. Lillie Pease it was
challenging, but not an impossible task. She was the first member of
the HMS ESE department to complete an IEP using the Tienet sys-
tem. Congratulations Mrs. L. Pease. The photo shows Mrs. Pease
getting her document approved by district office personnel, Sharon
Thomas.
