School Board

looks at

certification

issues

by Leslie Roberts
Times News Editor
Gadsden County School Board
members worked Tuesday night
to iron out the issue of instructors
teaching out of their fields.
After *reviewing a list of
personnel who were teaching in
areas they're not certified for,
several board members asked
Schools Superintendent Reginald
James to review it to see whether
some of the teachers listed could
be better suited for other
positions.
"I think we need to reevaluate
(agenda item) 6a and make sure
all the certifications are in before
we approve it," board member
Eric Hinson said.
Board Chairman Roger Milton
concurred.
"There are quite a few out-of-
field people on the list. He's
trying to see if those people could
be better matched," Milton said.
Board member Judge Helms
said he was concerned with the
district's number of uncertified
teachers as well as those teaching
outside their fields.
"What I'm concerned about is
all of them, and I know we've got
FTE (full-time equivalency)
funds coming up in October and
,we're likely to lose FTE funds,"
Helms said. "I am very
concerned about so many that are
trying to be matched up ... a 'D'
school has seven of them. I'm
concerned about bringing our
grade level up with that many
uncertified teachers at that
school."
James said there is time to work
out the issue before FTE
decisions are made in October,
and that the matter has been
ongoing for several years.
"We are well aware of that fact
... we've had some out-of-field
issues for a while, and it seems to
be working well for. us," James
said.

FSH employees: lives at risk


Eniploiee- froma Florida Statle Howpi~al %%ant a --pecialI risk *designation and
more pa.1 for %%iorkiiig M~th [lie criniinaII insane. rhoto h Alice DuPont)


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
Thursday, a group of employees from
Florida State Hospital told Rep. Curtis
Richardson and Sen. Skip Campbell,
democratic candidate for attorney general
and Jeanette Wynn (president of the
American Federation of State County and
Municipal Employees) that their lives were
as much at risk as police officers,
firefighters, and prison guards.
They want to know what is classified as
"special risk" employment so that they can
receive benefits that will allow them to
retire earlier without losing any benefits.
Some employees have horror stories
about the abuses suffered at the hands of
residents in the forensic unit.
The unit houses criminals that have been
declared insane and cannot stand trial for
crimes committed. While they are called
residents at FSH, they would be labeled


inmates in'a regular prison setting.
Wynn said that 20 years ago a move was
started to get the classification but to no
avail. She urged about 50 people, mostly
FSH employees, to join the 'union to
continue the fight.
Campbell said there should be 100
people in the Chattahoochee City Hall
protesting the Legislature's inaction on
granting the workers the "special risk"
designation.
But Wynn and others said more people
would have attended to meeting were it not
for a memo that has been circulated
warning employees that if they spoke to
the media, they could be terminated.
"We're tired of being threatened that
Florida State Hosiptal will be privatized if
we're not quiet. If it's not privatization,
it's the understaffing at the hospital. It's a
wonder more people haven't gotten
killed," she said.

Wynn promised not to give up the fight


that she has been spearheading to get all,
employees in the forensic unit treated
better. She also said AFSMCE will support
the policitcians who support workers.
Just by coming to the meeting, Campbell
did not get automatic endorsement. "We're
going to support the people who support
us. We started this initiative 20 years ago
when the Democrats were in charge," she
said, to applause from the nearly 50 people
who packed in the tiny city hall.
But those who work directly with
residents, called unit rehabilitation
specialist,, aren't the only ones worried and
say they, too, are at risk.
"I'm a beautician. I have scissiors and
long cords all day long. I had to g6 to
school and I have my state certification,
but I worried working around these people
all day," she said.
Housekeepers say they are in an even
more precarious situation. Sometimes, all
that stands between them and a legally-


declared insane murderer is a mop and a
bucket of water.
"What about us?" asked one woman.
"It's going to be important that you do
this right. You need to invite Charles Crist
(Republican candidate for Governor) here,
she said. Others in the audience yelled out
that Jim Davis (Democratic candidate for
Governor) should come, too.
"For the past five or six years, we've
been afraid to invite people out here
because I didn't have the support of all of
you," Wynn said to the employees. Now is
your chance to sign up for the union.
Attorneys cost money, investigations cost
money...you need to sign up," Wynn
urged.
Annie Cobb said she had seen a memo
from the hospital's top brass about
employees speaking out on issues. 'We
need to work together. We need to go to
the rallies. We cannot give up. We have to

Tempers flare at Quincy Commission


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
Mayor Sherrie Taylor closed Tuesday night's regular
meeting even before she entertained a motion to adjourn.
But not before she called the actions of commissioner
Derrick Elias and city manager Bill Bogan
"unprofessional."
"First of all we will conduct ourselves with respect for
this seat," she said, referring to a heated exchange of
words between Elias and Bogan when both ignored the
mayor's gavel for them to stop. "There was a total
disrespect for this seat."
Taylor told Elias that some of his questions to Bogan
seemed to be biased and prejudiced and called for him. to
stop his attacks on Bogan. "I'm embarrassed tonight for
what just happened. It's unfair what you've done. I pray
that you two will iron out your differences. What you've


done is a public embarrassment. Mr. Bogan, you're going
to have to learn to listen. Each time he (Elias) pushes your
button and he pushes you to that point (where you react
negatively) he has won," Taylor said.
It all began when Elias asked Bogan how long he had
been a financial consultant with the city before he became
city manager. Bogan said he couldn't remember. Elias
then reminded him that several times during the meeting
he said things happened before he came to the city or that
he needed more time, such as the audit.
"We jumped all over Mr. Banks because his audit was
two weeks late and now it might be next year before we
get an audit," he said. "With us paying you over $100,000
and with your credentials, you had to hit the ground
running."
He also criticized Bogan for his handling of the budget
saying that only one workshop was held and that
commissioners backed into the budget without any real


discussion. "That's why I asked for the entire final budget.
I don't see how a huge document could be reduced to one
page. I call it bait and switch," Elias said.
Elias continued with a laundry list of alleged Bogan
missteps. He reported that his garbage had not been
picked up and wanted to know if the reason was due to the
city not paying it's Waste Management bill on time.
Bogan said the company has mechanical trouble and that
it should be corrected. He added that the city has been
behind in paying Waste Management since the contract
was signed.
Elias said he picks up the newspapers to find out what's
going on at City Hall. He cited a recent article on firings,
retirements, and resignations at the police department and
the computer problems in the utilities department as two
examples.

'Inspiration' lands

at Quincy Airport;
Gadsden kids dream along with pilot
trying to become first African-
American to fly solo around the world

by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
Before Tuesday morning, Jason Salazar Rodriguez had never
even been close to an airplane. By 10 a.m. the seven-year-old had
made up his mind that he wanted to be a pilot. He already knew that
he had to learn mathematics and science, too.
What had this little boy's head in the cloud was another young
man, 22-year-old Barrington Irving. When Irving, a pilot who
aspires to become the first man of African descent and the youngest
person to fly an airplace solo around the world, signed a photo of
himself to Jasor he told him to "make sure you study."
Second graders from George W. Munroe Elementary School

"Helping You Feel Better"


"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."
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.

The Gadsden County Times September 28,2006 3


Residents launch complaints at Commission


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
There was standing room only at the
Quincy City Corhmission Tuesday night.
Residents wanted to be heard on issues
ranging from flooding to high utility
bills.
Mayor Sherrie Taylor adjusted the
agenda to hear citizens' concerns near
the beginning of the meeting instead of
at the end. While she told citizens they
would have three minutes to speak some
of the concerns were so detailed it took
between 15 and 30 minutes.
"I have three concerns. First, is the
excessive increase in utility bills. Our
bills are higher than those in neighboring
counties. It seems like Gadsden County
is trying to suck the life out of us. This
budget billing is a joke. It's for people
who are able and who can afford to pay
on time. Poor people, and the ones who
can't pay budget billing can't pay late


fees, disconnect fees and re-connect
fees," said Janice Jones. She asked
commissioners to consider that high
utility bills could be the reason some
people in the county are declaring
bankruptcy so often.
That was just the tip of the iceberg for
Jones, who lives on the southside of
town. She said since 1990 she has had
problems with her home flooding. "The
community started building up and I've
been running for higher ground since,"
she said. She had several requests for the
city commissioners to consider. Ideally,
she would like the city to allow her to
select another lot of comparable size to
the one she now owns and build her a
home, also comparable to the one she
now owns.
Jones' problems may be caused by
water running off property owned by
Quincy Joist and emptying onto Jones'
property. Bill Bogan, city manager, said
he had been working on Jones' problem


and that staff is looking for a solution to
remedy the problem. Storm water in the
area not only affects Jones' property,
though her problem may be the worst,
but other properties as well.
"Quincy Joist needs to come to the
table, the City of Quincy needs to come
to the table so that they can discuss this
and work something out," 'said Taylor.
Commissioner Keith Dowdell, who
represents the district where Jones lives,
said he feels nothing is happening
between Quincy Joist and the (Florida)
Department of Enviromental Protection.
He said when it comes to the average
citizens doing something wrong the city
goes after them wholeheartedly, but
when a company is involved, city
officials seemh not to pursue the problem
with equal vigor.
Bogan said the area has serious
drainage problems and those problems
have been going on for many years. "I'm
trying to look at it 'wholisitically', look


at relief for the entire area," he said.
"If Quincy Joist is violating our
ordinance we have to address that. I see
a pattern here. When our citizens do
something, we go at them hard, but when
a business is wrong, we try to sidestep it.
I want it to stop," he said
Taylor told Jones that it is unlikely the
city will purchase a lot for her or build
her a house, but she did say, however,
"relief is on the way, but it isn't just
around the comer."
At Taylor's request, Bogan explained
that the city does not have a power
station and while some cheaper power is
purchased through hydropower, it isn't
enough. The majority of the power used
by the City of Quincy is bought from
Progress Energy. He said that the city
currently has a contract with Florida
Power, and that contract ends in 2007.
"We'll look at ways to lower the energy
cost," he said.
In the meantime, the city can offer


energy audits to help citizens learn why
their utility bills are high. He said the
city is looking at a plan in the future to
offer citizens "devices" that can help
them lower their utility bills and pay the
money back to the city. He said the Fuel
Adjustment cost. is set by Progress
Energy and that is an area that will be
discussed with Progess Energy when the
contract is up next year.
Carol Jean Price thanked Bogan for the
explanation, but said she can't
understand why her home, which is four
rooms (not four bedrooms) can generate
a $400 utility bill. "In the winter I'm
cold and in the summer I'm hot. I have
air conditioning in one room and I use
kerosene in the winter," she said.
Price said that when she went to pay
her utility bill she saw an old lady who
was using her entire check to pay her
utility bill. "I have compassion for older
people, what is she going to use to eat

Mary Hadley could be in

trouble with this spinach crisis!


I thought in light of the spinach scare
spreading across the land today I needed to
announce that I am safe. VERY SAFE!
I've got warts and kidney stones and a
tennis elbow and something ain't right with
the sciatic nerve in my right hip; but I am
free from any wild E.coli bacteria running
rampant in my small intestines.
At least I am free from any infectious bad
microorganisms that got into my system by
the oral intake of tainted spinach in any
shape, form, fashion or kind! I ain't had a
bite of spinach in 43 years and I am not
about to reverse that trend now!
I've got a good memory.
Mom used to set that stuff in front of us
with the admonition that "it was good for
you." I was five or six at the time but I was
no dummy. NOTHING that tastes like that
could be good for anybody. Whew! One
bite could gag a maggot! I didn't like it *
fresh, canned, leafy, steamed, boiled or
creek flung.
And listen to this, along about junior high
she took to serving it with calves' liver.
Liver AND spinach! She was going to
strengthen up our bodies even if it killed
us! And this was back when "Clean your
plate" was the national yell.
Leon, who was older and wiser and much
more versed on the United States
Constitution than me and David, allowed it
was cruel and unusual punishment. He
pleaded our anti spinach case at supper one
night so hard that Dad looked up and
cleared his throat..... That revolt ended
before it even began.
We would have cornbread crumpled up
in our buttermilk for dessert. Not exactly a
hot fudge sundae but at least it would cut
the lingering taste of liver and spinach. It
got so bad one school year we actually
cheered when Mom served cauliflower and
Brussel sprouts. Mom liked to point out
that Popeye character, "Look what a little
spinach does for him."
Leon would quickly counter, "If he was
eating hamburgers, French fries and
Neapolitan ice cream I bet he could find
someone a lot prettier than that skinny girl
he's stuck with."
We fussed, complained, griped, moaned
and bemoaned.....and Mom kept serving up
the spinach. I tried sticking it in the


cornbread as if it was a sandwich to hide
the taste. I stuck little bits of it in the
mashed potatoes. I poured ketchup on it. I
swirled it into the buttermilk and crumpled
up corn bread in hopes the flavor would
dissipate into the parfait mix. When Dad
got to laughing about something Fibber
McGee had said to Molly the night before,
I would slip a handful down to ole Duke.
The dog wouldn't even eat the stuff!
We'd talk about it in study hall. The
dislike for spinach was universal in our
little circle. "It would make a donkey
puke." Ricky Gene was usually pretty
direct.
"Where do you reckon it comes from?"
"I think it's that stuff cows chew in their
cud and then spit back up" I couldn't tell if
Pam was serious or not!
"Have you ever noticed," Bobby Brewer
was about as smart as we had, "how they
cut the school grass on Monday and we
have spinach on Tuesday."
"Why do all parents think it is good for
you?" Now, LaRenda had asked the right
question!
There was silence as we pondered on that
one.
"I think it's the green color."
"Or good advertising on the part of the
National Spinach Growers Association."
"Or maybe it's cheap, easy to plant,
survives the cold well, washes up clean,
can be cooked in any quantity needed and
doesn't leave a sticky mess on the plate."
"And that makes it good for you?"
"You know," Bobby had rolled all of this
around in his head, "the Baby Ruth people
need to come out with a green candy bar."
If study hall had lasted another thirty
minutes, we could have solved all the
world's problems.
I worked hard to get that first date with
Mary Hadley Hayden. I was in high school
and Mom let me have the car: We cruised
Frank's Dairy Bar and shared a Cherry
Coke. I took her on the Baptist Church
hayride. We walked along the river and
talked about life. We held hands at the
movies. We went to a Bo Diddley concert.
I thought it was true love.....
Until she invited me to her house for
dinner! Her mom cooked roast beef and

A grave injustice

As a concerned citizen in Gadsen County,
I am submitting this article on the behalf of
Benjamin Bridges. It pertains to several
articles written by an editor of the Gadsen
County Times on "GCSO makes crack,
meth busts", "Police make 3 crack arrests",
and "Gadsen County Sherriff's Office
Arrest report".
Mr. Bridges was portrayed by the media
as a hard core criminal drug dealer. His
picture was flashed around on WCTV,
printed in the Gadsen County Times, and
made front page news in the Havana
Herald as a participant in a "mobile meth
lab" bust done. Set the record straight on
Mr. Bridges. He was not arrested for
running anything as such, and his picture
should never have been posted with those
persons who were charged in the met bust.
There were other arrests for trafficking
cocaine, selling 98 grams of crack cocaine
to an undercover agent and sale of
controlled substance, and their bond or bail
was set between $10,000 and $25,000, but
all who were invloved in those crimes for
some reason or another their pictures were
not posted, but Mr. Bridges' picture was.
How much crack cocaine did he possess?
Was the amount so small that you were
embarrassed to print it? Or, do you know
that he was set up by an informant agent
and you could not print that?
This is Mr. Bridges' first offense. He has
never been arrested for the sale of any
illegal drugs. He did not deserve to be
treated any different from anyone else who
was arrested for having $50.00 worth of
cocaine. In that case thousands of Gadsen
County citizens would be locked up behind
bars. We all want drugs off the street. A
person who uses another as a runner to sell
or get their supply of crack cocaine is just
as guilty as the person who sells it to them.
Mr. Bridges certainly did not deserve to
have his picture flashed around on WCTV,
and get front page on the Havana Herald.
With that said, how on God's green earth
can he get justice? He has already been
convicted by you. You have been the judge
and the jury and you have done Mr.
Bridges a grave injustice in this small
town. Was it to sell newspapers, or to
prove to the community that you are doing
your job at the.expense of a trick (crafty
procedure meant to deceive)?
My article will probably not be printed,
but whoever is responsible for this injustice
of Mr. Bridges, they certainly will have to
answer to a much higher power. Mr.
Bridges will find solace. He is from a good


and God fearing family, and I pray that the
angels in Heaven will surround and
comfort him just as they did in the Bible in
the book of Daniel. Be careful how you
treat others, because your sister or brother
could very well be next in line to be set up
by an undercover agent.

Rattlesnake Scared

Upon returning to his 244 Bradley St.
residence around 4:10 p.m. Thursday, K.D.
Edwards approached a city police and two
animal control officers who had watched a
rattlesnake for 15 minutes in a neighbor's
yard-implying he was the biggest they had
ever seen.
K.D. asked why they didn't kill it. They
stated they needed authorization and they
had families and needed their jobs. Next
time, Mr. Edwards said, he'll call Shanks
cheerleaders to cheer the snake along his
way.
What are the procedures for killing a
deadly snake in the city limits now that you
have scared residents and mostly children
afraid to go outside and play?
What makes them not afraid to shoot a
standing citizen and be justified and not
shoot a crawling snake which needs
authorization?
A concerned citizen,
K.D. Edwards

$9,000 in cash confiscated; brothers arrested


Willie Jones


by ALICE DU PONT
TIimes Editor

The Jones brothers, 29-year-old Willie Charles
and 27-year-old Gregory of Quincy, were arrested
last Wednesday and charged with trafficking in
cocaine. It took the Gadsden County Sheriff's
Office and the Florida Department of Law
Enforcement a month to arrest the pair after
undercover agents negotiated a deal to buy one
and one-half kilos of powder cocaine.
The two agreed to make an initial payment of

Barrington Irving landed at the Quincy Airport Tuesday morning and was greeted by second
graders from George W. Munroe Elementary School. He hopes to be the first man of African
descent and the youngest to fly an airplane solo around the world. (Photo by Alice DuPont)


Inspiration
Continued from Page 2
the age of 6. As a teenager
growing up in the inner city of
Miami and seeing the hopeless-
ness of others around him daily,
he decided that the way out was
through football. "My plan was
to play football in high school,
get a college scholarship to'play
football, graduate from college
and move. on with my life," he
said.
All that changed one day
while he was working in his par-
ents' Christian bookstore and
happened to hold a conversation
with a Jamaican pilot named
,Gary Robinson. "He asked me if
I had ever thought about becom-
ing a pilot," he told the children,
who hung on to every word. The
next day Capt. Robinson, who
worked for United Airlines, took
young Irving into the cockpit of
the Boeing 777 he flew for a liv-
ing.
That was when his life
changed for good. He had found
his passion. Irving dropped foot-
ball and turned down scholar-
ships to college. "I wasn't so
popular any more on campus,
either," he said. With no football
scholarships, Irving enrolled in
community college where part
of his tuition was covered by a
Florida Bright Futures


Scholarship. He soon began
spending afternoons and week-
ends at the Opa Locka Airport.
He washed planes for private
owners in exchange for half-
hour flight lessons or money he
could use to pay for flight les-
sons. At night he practiced fly-
ing on his own by using $40
Microsoft Flight Simulator soft-
ware.
"It was really good. I learned
a lot. That's why Microsoft is
one of my sponsors," he said.
He was so taken with avia-
tion that he could hardly think of
anything else. "All I talked
about was aviation. I spoke at
churches, schools, anywhere I
could to tell people about the
different careers in aviation.
Others saw his passion and
enthusiasm for flying and he was
awarded a joint Air
Force/Florida Memorial
University Flight Awarenenss
Scholarship that covered the
remainder of his college tuition
and paid for flying lessons.
"He sure had to go to school
a lot," said Jaylon Price as
Irving talked about what it takes
to prepare for becoming a pilot.
He told the kids that he studied
hard to earn Private and
Commercial Pilot and Flight

"How old do you think you


have to be to get a pilot
license?" he asked.
The answers ranged from 21
to 50. "You can start flying at 16
and get your license at 17," he
said, adding, "about the same as
your driver's license."
But they knew Irvings air-
plane didn't compare to a car.
For starters, he wowed them
when he told them that the price
tag for "Inspiration" was
$600,000 and the trip will cost a
cool $1.5 million. The trip, he
said, will take 45 days with the
average of each leg 5 to 6 hours.
The longest leg of the trip will
be 9 hours from St. John's,
Newfoundland to Santa Maria,
Azores. The maximum range of
"Inspiration" is 1,900 nautical
miles. The airplane has a top
speed of about 270 miles per
hour and can climb to 25,000
feet.
"There are a lot of things I
had to take into consideration
before I decided on this flight.
There are a lot of airports that
don't have the kind of fuel that I
use, I have to arrange for that.
The weather is always a consid-
eration. I also had to arrange for
all of my passports and creden-
tials to be in order. I don't want
to be flying in the wrong space
and get shot down," he said.

Havana discusses revitalization


and absentee owner's lot


by Leslie Roberts
Times News Editor
Havana Town Manager Susan Frieden's last
council meeting was a short one.
The Town Council met Tuesday at 9 a.m. to hear
items including a report from Michael Murphy 6f
Hatch Mott MacDonald infrastructure and environ-
mental engineering company on phase III of the
downtown revitalization project.
Murphy suggested hiring Clayton Campbell to
serve as a full-time inspector for electrical work
whenever it is performed in the course of the revital-
ization, at a lump sum of $20,000, which will likely
come from commercial revitalization area tax dol-
lars.
"A lot of work will be done underground. He did
an excellent job in phase II," Murphy said.
"It's money well-spent," said Frieden, who is
leaving her post Oct. 2.
Phase III will be a continuation of the installation
of underground utilities and street lights along 9th
Avenue around 2nd Street and up 7th Avenue in
front of Wanderings on NW 1st Street.
The bid for the project came in slightly overbud-
get $717,680 but the town could take the overage
out of its infrastructure money for paving and
repaving work. The original grant was for $650,000.
Council members also learned from Frieden that
a Burger King is scheduled to open in February on
Main Street about a block south of Town hall.
In other matters, council members discussed the

$700,000.
While the experiences of his
young life have been lauded,
Irving said the most humbling
experience he will ever have is
sharing with children and instill-
ing in them that there is another
way.
"You are an absolute inspira-
tion. I could not have imagined

overgrown yard of an absentee owner and which
measures to take.
"She's ignored all the notices, all requests to
come talk to you all," Frieden told council members.
"Absentee owners are really, really difficult to deal
with."
In the end, the council voted to approve a resolu-
tion authorizing the removal and abatement of the
nuisance, tall grass, with all legal fees and costs
incurred placed as a lien on the property.
"There are also a lot of junk cars out there we
are going to identify all of them and bring you all the
violations at once," Frieden told council members.
Frieden also praised Havana Police Chief Brian
Mitchell, who reported he had gotten a grant to pur-
chase an unconventional police car that will help
police enforce aggressive driving. The car comes
equipped with a video camera.
Mitchell announced downtown streets will be
closed Sept. 30 for the second annual Fall Out
Festival and again Oct. 6 for the homecoming
parade.
In other business, council members:

The Gadsden County Times September 28, 2006 9


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor


For many years, Gadsden
County had the dubious distinc-
tion of having the highest infant
mortality rate in the state.
Health care professionals, local
and statewide, looked for ways
to save the babies in Gadsden
County. Monday night, during
the inaugural Mother Cares
Recruitment and Volunteer
Appreciation Program and
Dinner, the statistics revealed
by Maurine Jones, Ph.D.
showed that Gadsden County
was doing something right.
From 1998-2000:
*Of 1,000 African-
American babies born, 16.7
died within the first 28 days of
life. The statewide rate was 8.3
infant deaths. By 2005, the
neonatal infant death among
African-American babies had
dropped to 8.5. The state aver-
age was 8.7 infant deaths. In
Gadsden County, neonatal
infant deaths have been
reduced by 49 percent.


Rep. Curtis Richardson presented Daisy Bell Elias with the Gate
Keeper's Award from Mother Cares Network, Inc. Monday night
during the organization's first appreciation program and banquet.


in the home, could learn from
the wisdom of women in the
church community.
* The first two volunteers
were Idella Barnes and Mildred
McNeil, both of whom has
reared children of their own
and who now had empty nests.
The project has grown from
a small, one year grant to refer-


Idella Barnes (left) and Mildred McNeil (center) were the first vol-
unteers in the Mother Cares Network, Inc. They received recogni-
tions from Maurine Jones, Ph.D. (photo by Alice DuPont)


*Of 1,000 African American
babies born, 24.2 died within
the first year of life. The state
average was 12.8. By 2005, the
infant mortality rate per 1,000
African-American births in
Gadsden County was 13.9 as
compared to 13.5 statewide.
The infant mortality rate
decrease-d by 43 percent.
*In premature births
(defined as birth occurring
before 36 weeks gestation, the
leading cause of infant deaths
in Gadsden County), there were
17.2 compared to 13.7 among
African-Americans statewide.
By 2005, that number had
dropped to 15.7 premature
births compared to 14.6
statewide, showing a 8.7 per-
cent decrease.
"The statistics are something
you can be very proud of,
because you 'all contributed to
these magnificent improve-
ments. Someday we hope to see
the disparity in all health out-
comes disappear and with your
continued commitment, I think
we can truly acheive that
vision," Jones said.
The Mother Cares Network,
Inc. started in 2001 with the
aim of finding volunteers from
churches or Mothers of the
Church to take young women
under their wings and help
them, with advice and counsel-
ing, through pregnancy, child-
birth, and in the months after-
wards. Arrie Battle, coordina-
tor, thought the initiative would
work because young mothers,
many of whom had no guidance


rals for as many as 140 high
risk families in the county. The
project also reaches out to the
general community through
health fairs, forums, surveys
and dissemination of healthcare
information with the church as
a platform. The vision of the
program is to make it possible
for every citizen in the county
to have information and access
to quality health care and avail-
able resources.
Keynote speaker, the Rev.
Gerald Thomas, praised the
faith-based organization for

GADSDEN COUNTY
FARM BUREAU
ANNUAL MEETING

going into and staying in the
trenches to help others. His
message was one of unity to
make all of Gadsden County a
better place to live and raise
families. "We ought to stand
together in Gadsden County. If
God brought us out of one situ-
ation, He can bring us out of
another. You have a group of
women here who have stood
beside single mothers as well
as senior citizens. They did not
leave when the heat got hot,"
he said, in saluting the volun-
teers.
Because the organization is
about more than young mother
and babies, Rep. Curtis
Richardson had a special pres-
entation to make. The recipient
was 93-year-old Daisy Bell
Elias. He called her an "angel"
because it Elias who brought
the plight of Veronica, a 700
pound Quincy woman who was
in danger of losing her life to
obesity, to the attention of
Gadsden Woman to Woman,
the umbrella organization of
Mother Cares Network, Inc.
The theme of the program
was "I Am My Sister's Keeper"
and Richardson said Elias epit-
omized the theme. "She
demonstrated that she is her
sister's keeper. God sent an
angel in the form of Daisy Bell
Elias to care for (Veronica)
her," said Richardson in pre-
senting the Gate Keeper's
Award.
In all, 17 volunteers
received appreciation awards.
The group also received a
proclamation from the City of
Quincy and a flag from the
Board of County
Commissioners.

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

power over

the people

To whomever:
We received the "apology
letter" that you sent us, but an
apology means that you are sorry
about whatever it was that caused
the problem, and you will do
something about it. You are not
solving the problem; instead you
are trying to cover a big hole with
a small patch. You are saying that
we still have to pay the bill, but
can pay it in installments; this
does not solve our problem.
Another thing, this is not the
only month that we have had this
problem. We have been receiving
high utility bills for a long time. I
went to pay my bill about eight
months ago, and I saw an elderly
woman (who should be enjoying
her retirement) use her entire
check to pay her utility bill. That
is ridiculous. What about her
medicine, her food, even her
rent/mortgage. When utility bills
start to be more than your
mortgage or car payment,
something is wrong.
We are giving this one company
too much power (electric power)
over the people. When gasoline
gets too high at one gas station,
we can go to another station.
When groceries are too high at
one store, we can go to another
store. Even with our furniture, we
have several other places to go.
But when it comes to our utilities,
unfortunately we have only one
place to go (YOU).
Budget billing should be
automatically applied to everyone
without any qualifying criteria.


We should use common sense
and not dollars and cents. Talquin
Electric has too much power
(electric power) over the people.
Question:
Is there not enough money in
the city budget without robbing
the citizens? (The rich getting
richer and the poor getting
poorer). Where is Robin Hood?
Are employees using city
vehicles for their personal use?
Are these luxury vehicles being
driven without the city emblem
on them? Also, do we receive our
utility bill pricing, based on the
area of town that we live in? Isn't
anyone else concerned about
these issues? Are our neighboring
counties/states in a better
economical state than we are?
Poor Gadsden County (If it's
not one thing, it's another). Power
To The People!

I like my

hometown

paper
To the Editor:
I'm writing in reference to
receiving the Gadsden County
Times newspaper. I'm a resident
of Gadsden County, but I'm
incarcerated in. Gulf County. I'd
like to know how much it costs
for me to subscribe to the
Gadsden, County Times
newspaper for a period of six
months.
Keep up the good work. You
guys do a great job as far as
informing us of what's going on
in our community. Gadsden
County has lots of guys
incarcerated in the panhandle.
Without you and your staff we
would be lost as to what's going
on with our community and loved
ones.
I'm looking forward to
receiving our hometown paper.
Take care, God bless you!

Curtis Richardson told the
employees that their problems are
problems affecting employees in
state institutions statewide. He
called on employees to get
organized and open dialogue with
others who share their problems
iiand concerns about job safety, job
security, and pay.
; The issue gained more attention
earlier this month when a 52-year-
old Gadsden County man, James
Smith, collapsed and died of an
apparent heart attack after helping a
co-worker who had been attacked
by a resident. Employees in the


forensic unit say they do the same
work as prison guards but they
don't get the pay.

Families has said that she will
request the Legislature make the

include all who work with forensic
residents as well as improve the
level of staffing.

Taylor and Commissioner Andy
Gay said they understood the
plight of the people. "I feel so
powerless when it comes to
utilities. I've fussed and argued but
there is nothing I can do. I know
your frustration, but we didn't get
here overnight," Taylor said.
J'Hazel Dawkins said that her
utility bill was higher after the
energy auditors paid her a visit.
Commissioner Derrick Elias said
the city should do something to
relieve those citizens who were
affected by the glitch in the hand-
held computers that the city used

most recently to read meters. Late
last week Bogan sent a letter to all
affected customers apologizing for
problems that may have been
caused due to the city's error.
"It was through no fault of their
own. When we're at fault, we
ought to deal with it," Elias said.
In unrelated citizens' concerns,
Rutha Mae Washington and Annie
Ruth Lee said their homes were
not repaired properly by a city-
employed contractor. Both women
were helped under a city housing
rehabilitation grant, but
Washington said the contractor left
her home, in some ways, worse off
than when he began.
"Before he started, I didn't have
a leaking roof, now I do," she said.
Doors were turned inside out,
knobs that should have been on the
outside were on the inside. "It
really made my heart hurt," she
said.
Kirk Tanis said the inspection
l,'. ed that the homes had met the
minunuan standards, but said he
would meet with the homeowners
and the contractor to iron out the
problems.

amount of the green stuff on my
plate. Folks, before I could get
my knife to the roast beef Mary
Hadley had her face buried in the
spinach and she was shoveling it
down with both hands. She took
to it like a hog to slop!
When she came up for air and
grinned at me she had little pieces
of green spinach shards caught
between every tooth in her head!
I immediately went to thinking I
wished I had my money back on
them Bo Diddley tickets! I could
have taken Pam or LaRenda on
the hay ride. It was so dark in the
theater I didn't get a good look at
her face. Pretty is as pretty
does.....
I went off to college a year later
and got to make my own culinary
selections. I chose a life of
chocolate chip cookies and baked
apple pie over spinach. I may not
be in very good shape but I ain't
dead yet!
So don't worry about me and
the E. coli epidemic. I'll hunker
down with a coconut cream pie
and a bag of Butterfingers and
ride this thing out. If a viral
infection somehow gets traced
back to a boatload of tainted
sugar from Cuba, then I've got
problems!

ready for school this time around.
I've made straight A's since re-
enrolling and am doing very well."
At a writing workshop in
Maine this past summer with the
National Theater Workshop for the
Handicapped, the Today Show did
a piece about the workshop, which
is for wounded veterans. Muhrer-
Irwin was interviewed there and
the producers decided to send a
camera crew to Tallahassee to get a
glimpse into his life here. In fact,
life here in Tallahassee seems good


for Muhrer-Irwin, who doesn't let
his injury slow him down.
"I recovered far better than
anyone expected," he explained.
"Most of the time I don't even
have a noticeable disability. I have
a good job working for the state, I
go to school and am very active in
the swing dancing scene here in
town. In fact, I'm the president of
the TCC Swing Dancing Club and
have additionally been cast as the
lead in TCC's production of 'A
Christmas Story'."


Life today is a little different for
Tallahassee Community College
student Trueman Muhrer-Irwin.
From the battle fields of the
Middle East to a classroom in
Tallahassee, the scenery may have
changed, but his resolve and deter-
mination have not and that has
caught the attention of even the
national media. The following
story, as paraphrased by the TCC
Communications Office, was fea-
tured on NBC's The Today Show
September 22.
With just one semester of col-
lege under his belt, Muhrer-Irwin
joined the National Guard in the
spring of 2002 after moving to
Tallahassee from Chicago. Though
the events of September 11 (2001)
were not his main motivation for
signing up for the National Guard,
it was certainly on his mind. At the
urging of a good friend who was a
member of the ROTC, the two
joined together and attended basic
training at the end of the spring
semester that May.
By January of 2003, Muhrer-
Irwin was in Fort Stuart, Georgia
for a month of training before
being deployed to the Middle East.
His tour of duty began in mid-
February and lasted two months in
Kuwait before the invasion of Iraq.
As a member of the third battal-
ion, 124th infantry out of
Tallahassee, the Chicago native
and his unit were sent into Iraq and
were in charge of security of air
defense artillery. Once combat was
over, the unit moved into Baghdad
to patrol a section of the city for
the remaining time Muhrer-Irwin
was there.
Everything changed for the sol-
dier on November 12, 2003, when
his unit came into contact with a
roadside bomb. The squad was
heading back to their base and got
within 400 yards before the explo-
sive detonated on the right side of
the vehicle. Facing the rear in a
gun turret, Muhrer-Irwin took the
hit on his left side. The 23-year old
still has shrapnel lodged under his
skin in various spots reminding
him of the incident.
One piece of shrapnel, in par-
ticular, was the cause of a serious
injury that eventually sent the sol-
dier home. A piece about four
inches long shot through the left

side of his boot and lodged in
Muhrer-Irwin's foot. Not surpris-
ingly, his first reaction was that he
was going to lose his foot. One
other soldier on his vehicle suf-
fered a blown out ear drum, the
third was killed.
After minor surgery in the
Green Zone and four days in the
hospital in Germany, Muhrer-
Irwin was shipped back to the
states where he spent a year at Fort
Gordon in Augusta, Georgia, recu-
perating. By late November, 2004,
he was back in Tallahassee looking
for a job. However, as soon as he
wvas able to reapply for school, he
did.
"I found out that when you are
in the National Guard, your tuition
is paid for in Florida," Muhrer-
Irwin said. "However, since I had
been discharged and I was no
longer in the National Guard, my
tuition could no longer be waived.
So I wrote my congressmen, sena-
tors and local legislators.
However, by the time I got a hold
of any of them, it was three days
before the end of the current
Legislative Session. So I had to
wait another year before legisla-
tion was put through."
In May 2006, the Legislature
passed more than one bill benefit-
ing veterans; one of which stated
that any Florida resident who
receives a purple heart gets their
tuition waived. Muhrer-Irwin was
invited to meet the governor and
was present for the bill signing this
past spring.
With his tuition waived,
Muhrer-Irwin, entered his sopho-
more year at TCC this fall. His
tuition waiver, combined with his
part-time job and the G.I. Bill that
he still receives, allows him to ake
ends meet while continuing his
education.
Upon finishing his A.A. at
TCC, he will transfer to Florida
State to study either journalism or
writing.
"I love TCC. It's a great
school," said Muhrer-Irwin. "The
class sizes are really small, the
teachers are really nice, the facili-
ties are great and the campus is
beautiful. So I'm really glad hat I
came here and that I stayed. I think
my experience (in the National
Guard) has made me a lot more

Defeat #2 team 7-6
by Joe Ferolito
West Gadsden came up with a big defen-
sive game Friday night to get them by
Liberty Co. 7-6 in a District 1-1A show-
down.
Liberty Co. came in undefeated and
ranked second in the state's 1-lA poll. The

team wins 2 of 3
by Susie Morris
The Munroe volleyball team
won 2 of 3 last week with both
wins coming at the expense of
district opponents, Apalachicola
and Carrabelle. On Monday
night the team played dismally


losing to Rickards in five games
(25-7,, 23-25, 25-18, 23-25, 5 -
15). Mallary Taylor served up a
dozen assists and three aces.
Crystal Wade was very strong
from behind the serving line
with eleven aces. Ivie Thomas
and Julia Bates combined for
eleven kills.
Tuesday night the team host-
ed Carrabelle and won in three


Shanks wins again, 22-0


Liberty County took the
opening kickoff and controlled
the ball the 1st quarter. The
Tiger defense refused to break.
The Tiger offense then sputted
behind several key penalties and
miscues.
Like lightning, Donterrious
Gee struck on a 56-yd scamper
with 1:25 left in the half to break
the deadlock. Gee's P.A.T. made
it 8-0 at the half.
Lightning struck again for
the Tigers, this time on opening
kickoff of the 3rd quarter.


Tedrick Murray bobbled the ball
before making a spectacular 88
yard return to push it 14-0. O.J.
Johnson's elusive quarterback
keeper of 26 yards and P.A.T. by
Gee closed the scoring 22-0,
Shanks.
Outstanding defense, led by
Curtis Alexander's 9 tackles and
Cedric Brown's 6, refused to let
the Bulldogs score. Key defen-
sive plays by Gee, Adam Powell
and Walter Reddick helped
siezed the victory.


Bobcats get it done on links

by Susie Morris
The Munroe Bobcat golf team excelled this past week in match
play in so small part to the play of sophomore John-Hilton Revell.
He shot a 37 at The Golf Club of Quincy last week to help secure
a team victory over district opponents Maclay and John Paul II.
John Hilton also has previous rounds of 38 and 40, respectively.
The Bobcats finished with a team score of 156 to best Maclay by
five strokes. Also shooting well were John Dooner (38), Ben
Young (40) and Sam Young (41).
The team also defeated a regional power in Lincoln High School.
The Munroe golf team has a record of 11-5-0 and has only lost one
district match to Wakulla. The other 4 losses are to regional and
state favorite Leon and a very good Chiles team.

Jackson intercepted a pass and caused and
recovered a fumble to add to West
Gadsden's defense.
On offense R. Jackson rushed for 55
yards and received a pass for 16 while
Bradley had 12 pancake blocks in the con-
test. The win was the 151st of Coach Robert
Jackson's career.
West Gadsden moved to 2-2 with the vic-
tory and 2-0 in the district. They meet

Greensboro at 8 pm.

Thomas, Jill Purvis and Spenser

Thomas and Taylor also corn-.
bined for 17 assists and Crystal
Wade and Morris led with three

Thursday night the team trav-
eled to the coast to take on


by Joe Ferolito
A pair of plays late in the
third quarter did Munroe in
when they lost their football
game with Summit Christian
Friday night at Corry Field.
The Bobcats were tied with
the Saints 12-12 and had a first
and goal on the Summit 3-yard
line. Munroe fumbled the ball
on the first down play with the
Saints Ivore Fairweather recov-
ering at Summit's 5-yard line.
After one first down: the Saints
were in a third and long situa-
tion at their own 14.
Fairweather escaped on a busted
play and zipped 86 yards for a
touchdown giving the Saints a
19-12 lead and control of the
game which they went on to win
34-12.
Nile Knapp gave Summit the
games early lead when he
scored on a 1-yard run late in the
first quarter. Munroe tied the
contest in the second period on a


Apalachicola. Again they won
in three straight (25-14, 25-14,
25-21). Ivie Thomas and
Spenser Morris led on defense
with five digs apiece. Mallary
Taylor served up 13 assists and
Crystal Wade had five kills. Jill
Purvis added four kills. The
team moved to 6-10 on the sea-
son.

Before halftime the Saints

A 37-yard kickoff return by
Johnson beginning the second

down by Johnson that knotted
the game up Clay White then
intercepted a Saint pass on
Summit's next possession at the
Munroe 13. A 47-yard pass play
from White to Cody Watson fol-

from the same two moved the
Bobcats into a position to take
the lead in the game.
Fairweather's exploits helped
the Saints take control of the

Tigers




QHS


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
In 1963 the Tigers of Quincy High School won
one game. In 1964 the team won three games and
tied one. By 1965 they wanted a winning season
and set out to do just that. "We dedicated our-
selves and worked out all summer on our own,
unsupervised. We were on a kind of honor sys-
tem," said Craig McMillan, an offensive tackle on
the team.
Their hard work paid off because the team went
undefeated in 1965. They would have made it
into the state playoffs that year but for a glitch.
According to assistant coach Les Jones the Tigers
played, and whipped, teams from Bainbridge High
School and Cairo High School, but to get into the
state playoffs teams had to accumulate points.
"Because we played the two out of state teams we
didn't get any credit, or points, for those wins and
we lost out to go the the playoffs to Bonifay by a
half point," Jones aid.
Friday night most of the members of the team
were back on their old stomping ground, Corry
Field. This time they were recognized by the
crowd for that winning season at halftime. Some
of them are a little pudgier and others a little bald.
Ronnie Lolley was still able to get into his jersey,


#50, which he wore Friday night. Each, though,
had fond memories of the year that was their finest
hour on the gridiron.
There were at least two tense games that sea-
son. Madsion handed them a scare. To win, the
teams scored two touchdowns in two minutes,
McMillan said. "Anytime you go undefeated,
there is a certain amount of luck involved, too. But
it seemed that night that the stars and moon lined
up just right." That night they got some good
bounces and also had some of that luck.
The coaches give credit to the team and the
team gives credit to the coaches.
"They were just a great bunch of guys. They
were very coachable. They were a team commit-
ted to a winning season," Jones said, adding "they
were ademically smart, too." While most schools
in the area had between four and six coaches, it
was Jones and head coach Carlos Deason who led
the Tigers to victory.
But Deason was more than a coach to the
young men who made up the team. He was their
mentor, he was a guiding light, he helped shape
them into the men they would become. McMillan
said last Saturday as they gathered to talk about
the winning season and old times, someone
opened up Deason's old play book. "Just to let you
know what kind of man he was, the first two pages


of his play book were about positive things a
young man should do. There were things in there
like 'be nice to grown-ups, you never know when
you might need them' and other sayings that
would make us better people," he said.
The success of the team was attributed, in addi-
tion to the coaches, to the closeness of the team
members. "We were like a little family. As I
remember, there were three of four sets of broth-
ers on the team. We were real close and a lot of it
had to do with the brother connections," said
Jimmie Suber, backup quarterback.
Suber played behind Arthur Munroe, who
couldn't make the reunion because he is in
Switzerland, and remembers that he threw Kvo
touchdown passes that year. "We handled some of
the teams and I got a chance to play. I also held for


the field goals and the point after touchdown, so I
was on the field a lot," he said.
Munroe was quite a player and was the leading
scorer in the Big Bend: He went on to play foot-
ball four years at Florida State University.
Sadly, several members were killed in car acci-
dents, two died of cancer and one-David
Debord-was a player on the Marshall University
football team. He died when the school's chartered
airplane crashed on the way to play a game in
1970.
Deason and Jones were presented footballs
with the signatures of the team Saturday after-
noon. It was a gesture of love for the two men that,
they say, really means more to them that the win-
ning season.

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

Kermit WahI's


92 year old recalls dairy farms and days on the river


by Leslie Roberts
Times News Editor


Kermit Wahl can remember when
dairy farms were the norm in Gadsden
County.
At 92, he remembers a lot of things.
He had been working as a geological
surveyor for the federal government in
the late '20s and traveling across the U.S.
in that capacity from his home in
Freeport, Fla.
He and his wife had a daughter, and he
was hoping to find something that would
allow him to be home with them more of
the time.
"In the meantime, the war came along
and I had to go in the service during that
time," he said. "When I came out, I began
to look for something else. I decided to
change over to the Army Corps of
Engineers I had a sister in Quincy and
had heard about the dam in


Chattahoochee. They said it was going to
be a five-year job. Then a good friend at
the health department told me I should
work there. I had 30 days' leave from my
job and worked at the health department
during that time that 30 days grew into
32 years."
Wahl and his family settled in Quincy
in 1929, and he eventually became direc-
tor of environmental health for the health
department.
"There used to be about 40 small
dairies here, then the law said milk had to
be pasteurized you couldn't sell it raw. I
hated to see them go out, because I like
raw milk," he said.
But his fondest memories are of time
he spent with friends and family running
up and down the area's rivers the
Apalachicola, primarily.
"Back in the '50s, we overnighted a
brigade going down the Apalachicola
abeut once a month," he said. "There


were too many who liked to race down
the river they had one speed, and it was
wide open. We'd stop at a sandbar and
shoot the breeze for a while, then we'd go
on to the next sandbar. Then we'd go
down and spend the night in
Apalachicola and have a seafood sup-
per."
Wahl said there were usually 25 or 30
boats in the brigade, but the number
dwindled to about five. There were, he
said, adventures along the way down the
river.
"One day, we stopped at a sandbar.
Everybody was sitting around talking and
somebody noticed the engine was leak-
ing, dripping gas in the water. About that
time the boat caught on fire," he said.
"Everybody stood around with their
mouths hanging open. David Watson
grabbed his fire extinguisher and put it
out."
Wahl's wife died some years ago; his


daughter, Linda, lives in Tallahassee and
he resides at the Magnolia House in
Quincy.
Cancer cost him his left leg in 2001,
but he does still get out to weekly
ROMEO (Really Old Men Eating Out)
luncheons at Kittrell's. The group, most
of them friends of the late local history
teacher Guy Race, gathers to talk about
issues of interest both past and present.
An avid fisherman, he still has a cabin
on the lake, although he doesn't fish
much anymore, he said. He keeps in
touch with old friend Hank Musgrove,
who often went on river trips with him.
"Hank Musgrove always kept a corn
sack full of tools he was a mechanic.
Anyway, he could fix any engine prob-
lems right quick," Wahl said. "It was a lot
of fun we had a lot of fun with boats.
About the only thing I can do now is
read, but I guess for 92, I'm still doing
alright."

Smiss you.

"Your shortys"
"Birdmnan", it's hard to believe that it has been a year since you left us. Although we
know that you are not here it is so hard for us to come to grips knowing you're noa
Longer with us. We still look for you to walk in the door but one thing's for sure, we
know that the Lord does not make mistakes. So, when saying that, we know that you
are resting in the arns ofthe Lord You brought such love and happiness to our lives
Sand we would be fooling ourselves if we war to say that iwe do not miss you. "Baby
SBoy" we miss you more than words could ever say. Out lives will never be, and have
not been the same since you left us. We still love you and will always love you.

Your loving mother, Timolin, leff Timothy, Wendell, family & fliends..

e serving up different types of specialty coffees. But don't think for a moment that Americans are the only ones that love coffee. It is an international
4 favorite. It is also important to know that coffee is by no means a modern invention. It has been a favorite beverage even to people in ancient
times. It is served piping hot and freezing cold, making it one of the most r -aile drinks that there is. It is even used for other things such as artwork and pest control!
Coffee is a beverage that is brewed. They are often called beans, but they are actually a seed of a coffee tree. Before the brewing process can take place the seeds are
roasted. Then in order to brew it, you must first take the coffee seeds and grind them into smaller pieces. These small pieces are called grinds. The grinds are then usually
placed into the filter section of a coffee maker. The filter is used to preverlt th.e grinds from passing into the beverage. Boiling hot water is -hen passed over the dry grinds.
As the hot water seeps though the fresh grinds, the coffee and water combines. From this point the water, which is now coffee, then flows into a container, or coffee pot.
At this point it is ready to be served. Many people add sugar and cream or milk to their coffee, and others drink it straight from the pot. This is called "taking your coffee
black', as it is a very dark brown color. Some people enjoy their coffee cold over ice, or even 'nied 'iiih crushed ice, to form a type of coffee slushy. It is even popular to
serve coffee with whipped cream, as the rich, sometimes bitter taste of coffee is a perfect compliment to sweet flavors. It is for this reason that it is very popular and
common to have coffee with a dessert.
Coffee has been a well known drink for many centuries. Many people believe that coffee is from South America, mainly Brazil, And while Brazil is one of the largest
coffee producing countries in the world, its origins are actually out of Africa. The first coffee seeds are believed to be discovered by a sheep herder in Ancient Ethiopia by
the name of Kaldi. Since coffee.seeds are extracted from a fruit that looks like a cherry, Kaldi's sheep ate the fruit and became hyper. This was how the coffee seeds were
brought to the attention of humans. After it was discovered, the drink was then spread out to the rest of the world via the Egyptians and then later by the European traders
and explorers. Different types of coffee were named from the different places that were:most well known for them. The terms Mocha and Java are names of cities in Indo-
nesia and Yemen that export these types of coffee. You may think that the coffee shop or coffee house is a new modem fad. But that is quite different from the reait,,; of it.
Coffee houses were first seen as far back as Ancient Egypt. And though they were most likely not like modem coffee houses, they were places of storage and jistribullonr
The famous British insurance firm, Lloyd's of London, started out as a coffee house for marine merchants. Today, coffee is still one of the top three items traded around
the world. The number one item is gasoline. That tells you how important coffee is to the world! ... '. .. .. N .. ;I

health hazards of tobac-
co, which shall be

priation required by this
section;

tobacco and to discour-
age their use of it, includ-

tions for improvements to
enhance the program's
effectiveness, which are
to include comparisons
to similar programs
proven to be effective in
other states, as well as
.comparisons to CDC
Best Practices, including
amendments thereto.
(b) Funding. In every
year beginning with the
calendar year after vot-
ers approve this amend-
ment, the Florida
Legislature shall appro-
priate, for the purpose
expressed herein, from
the total gross funds that
tobacco companies pay
to the State of Florida
under the Tobacco
Settlement, an amount
equal to fifteen percent of
such funds paid to the
State in 2005; and the
appropriation required by
this section shall be
adjusted annually for
inflation, using the
Consumer Price Index as
published by the United
States Department of
Labor.
(c) Definitions.
'Tobacco" includes, with-
out limitation, tobacco
itself and tobacco prod-
ucts that include tobacco
and are intended or
expected for human use
or consumption, includ-
ing, but not limited to,
cigarettes, cigars, pipe
tobacco, and smokeless
tobacco. The "Tobacco
Settlement" means that
certain Settlement
Agreement dated August
25, 1997, entered into in
settlement of the case
styled as State of Florida,
et al. v. American
Tobacco Company, et al.,
Case No. 95-1466 AH
(Fla. 15th Cir. Ct.), as
amended by Stipulation
of Amendment dated
September 11, 1998; and
includes any subsequent
amendments and suc-
cessor agreements.
"Youth" includes minors
and young adults.
(d) Effective Date. This
amendment shall
become effective imme-
diately upon approval by
the voters.

Financial Impact State-
ment:
This amendment
requires state govern-
ment to appropriate
approximately $57 mil-
lion in 2007 for the
Comprehensive
Statewide Tobacco Edu-
cation and Prevention
Program. Thereafter,
this amount will increase
annually with inflation.


This spending is expect-
ed to reduce tobacco
consumption. As a result,
some long-term savings
to state and local govern-
ment health and insur-
ance programs are prob-
able, but indeterminate.
Also, minor revenue loss
to state government is
probable, but indetermi-
nate.

ner prescribed by law.

proportion which the
interest in the corpora-
tion bears to the

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

assessments; twenty-five
thousand dollars with
respect to assessments

ment roll until such roll is
first determined to' be in
compliance with the pro-
visions of section 4 by a
state agency designated
by general law. This sub-
section shall stand
repealed on the effective
date of any amendment
to section 4 which pro-
vides for the assessment
of homestead property at
a specified percentage of
its just value.
(e) By general law and
subject to conditions
specified therein, the
Legislature may provide
to renters, who are per-
manent residents, ad val-
orem tax relief on all ad
valorem tax levies. Such
ad valorem tax relief
shall be in the form and
amount established by
general law.
(f) The legislature may,
by general law, allow
counties or municipali-
ties, for the purpose of
their respective tax levies
and subject to the provi-
sions of general law, to
grant an additional
homestead tax exemp-
tion not exceeding twen-
ty-five thousand Odollars
to any person who has
the legal or equitable title
to real estate and main-
tains thereon the perma-
nent residence of the
owner and who has
attained age sixty-five
and whose household
income, as defined by
general law, does not
exceed twenty thousand
dollars. The general law
must allow counties and
municipalities to grant
this additional exemp-
tion, within the limits pre-
scribed in this subsec-
tion, by ordinance adopt-
ed in the manner pre-
scribed by general law,

periodic adjustment of
the income limitation pre-
scribed in this subsection
for changes in the cost of
living.

age 65 or older who is
partially or totally perma-
nently disabled shall
receive a discount from
the amount of the ad val-
orem tax otherwise owed
on homestead property
the veteran owns and
resides in if the disability
was combat related, the
veteran was a resident of
this state at the time of
entering the military serv-
ice of the United States,
and the veteran was hon-
orably discharged upon
separation from military
service. The discount
shall be in a percentage
equal to the percentage
of the veteran's perma-
nent, service-connected
disability as determined
by the United States
Department of Veterans


Affairs. To qualify for the
discount granted by this
subsection an applicant
must submit to the coun-
ty property appraiser by

dency at the time of

centage of the veteran's
service-connected dis-
ability and such evidence

the disability as combat
related, and a copy of the
veteran's honorable dis-
charge. If the property
appraiser denies the
request for a discount,

the reasons for the
denial, and the veteran

eral law. waive the annu-
al application require-
ment in subsequent
