TMH gets


county OK


for ER

by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
The Board of County Commissioners
unanimously approved a contract with
Tallahassee Memorial Hospital to manage the
Urgent Care Center. Opening the center is the
first step toward re-opening the hospital which
closed a year ago next month.
Corey Fleming, TMH administrator, said it
may take from 30 to 120 days to get the doors
open. "I'm looking more at 30 days than 120
days which is the worst case scenario. We are in
the process of interviewing for a physician," he
said. Applications for other employees are being
screened and the credentials and licenses for
professional staff are being checked.
"This is urgent care, not emergency service.
This is essentially clinic care," Fleming said.
Plans are to operate the facility, which will be
housed in the former emergency in the hospital,
from 2 p.m. to 8 p.m. seven days a week:
Fleming said they looked at the volume of
business and felt that the best times to open
would be when physicians' offices are closed
and because some people choose to wait until
the work day is over before they seek treatment.
"Obviously we can adjust those hours or
increase to 10 hours," said Joseph Sharp, the
county's medical care consultant.
According to Fleming, while the center is not
an emergency care facility, no one with an
emergency will be turned away. "Say it's
someone had a heart attack, we would stabilize
them and send the x-rays on to the hospital so
that they can get the best possible care as
quickly as possible when they arrive," Fleming
said.
TMH will also embark on a comprehensive
informational and education program letting
citizens know the hours and the services
offered. "That's why we set aside $18,000 so
that we could effectively get the word out about
the services that will be offered," Fleming said.
Thornton Williams, county attorney, said
TMH is an independent contractor. The only
person who will be an employee of TMH will
be the center's administrator. The county will
perform all necessary background checks and
drug screenings while TMH will assist in
identifying and interviewing medical personnel
and will conduct licensing and credentials

Midway

growth

director's

salary shrinks

by Leslie Roberts
Times News Editor
After nearly three months of debate, the Midway
City Council voted Thursday to lower the pay increase
it approved in July for the growth management
services director.
After the July 6 vote to increase Roosevelt Morris'
contracted hourly rate from $23 per hour to $50 per
hour, Midway residents called council members to
complain.
At issue was the fact that several of Morris'
professional certifications had expired and that the job
he was being paid for had not been advertised.
The Council voted unanimously Thursday to reduce
Morris' pay to $30 per hour and to advertise the
position before taking a final vote on the matter. He
will be paid $30 per hour as a contract employee until
the Council makes its final decision; if it votes again
to approve the changes proposed, he would become a
full-time city employee and work no more than 40
hours per week, Mayor Delores Madison said.
Madison, who initially brought up the issue of
Morris' certification, said Tuesday she voted to lower

Road boat ramp about 75 feet from the
bridge in Havana. The body was found by
fishermen around 5:25 p.m. in several feet
of water. She had been in the water for
several hours.
"The circumstances surrounding this death
are considered suspicious and foul play is
suspected," said Inv. Ulysses Jenkins of the
Gadsden County Sheriffs Office. The
investigation is being conducted by the
GCSO along with the Florida Department of
Law Enforcement and the Leon County
Sheriff's Office.
"The body was found near the Gadsden-


Leon county line and we did not want
jurisdiction to be an issue. We haven't
determined where the crime actually took
place," he said.
Jenkins said investigators need the help of
the public to solve this crime. "We are

Cannery reopens in Havana
Dollie Griffin and her fiance, Joseph Byrd, interview with ABC
Channel 27 news reporter Todd Morrill Saturday during the grand
re-opening of The Cannery in Havana. The two renovated the build-
ing and plan to put a jazz/blues club there along with antiques, art,
works and other interesting items. The Cannery served as a canning
plant during World War II and a processing plant for Tupelo honey
after. It housed antique dealers and other vendors through the years
.until 2000, when a fire that started in the Shade restaurant closed the
facility. One of the building's last occupants, a bingo operation, was
shut down by police around 18 months ago. Griffin and Byrd say
they hope to attract "a different kind of customer than usually visits
Havana" to the place and make it a fun place to visit. They current-
ly have 15 vendors, including Nico's Cafe, which will specialize in
Southern food.
The Cannery is at 115 E. Eighth Ave. and is open Wednesday
from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.; Thursday through Saturday 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.
and Sunday from noon to 6 p.m. (Photo by Leslie Roberts)

SHelpingYou Fee Better"


Sherry Thompson

Massey Drugs knows who I am

and what I need!
Very few businesses have customers as passionate as
Sherry Thompson. But she drives from Tallahassee every
week for her prescriptions. She will not trust any other
pharmacy with her health.
Sherry became dissatisfied with the chain drug stores
she had been using during a recent illness. Friends, who
were also loyal Massey Drugs customers, recommended
the pharmacy.
"At the time I was switching medications frequently,
and they kept up with it...all the changes in medicines and
dosages and working with several doctors and offices.
Some of these medicines were not normally stocked, and
they kept up with all the special orders. I've never had a
pharmacy give me such service!" she says.
"Here, they actually work WITH you. That consistency
of service is so necessary, and the big pharmacies just
don't offer that."
"At Massey Drugs, They Know Their Customers!"

She had just worn her first pair of high heels



Riley family coping with Cynthia's death. She was their 'gift from God'


"Crystal was a daddy's
girl. When you would
see John, you would
see her."
Dritches Clary, Crystal's aunt
by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
Two weeks ago Cynthia Riley did what
most mothers take pride in doing for
their daughter. She purchased her
youngest daughter, 15-year-old Crystal,
her first pair of high heel shoes. "They
were wedgies and she wore them to
church last Sunday. My aunt told her
that she looked tall, and Crystal stuck
her leg out so that our aunt could see her
shoes," said Dritches Clary, Crystal's
aunt and Cynthia's sister.
Crystal was killed Friday night and her
mother was badly injured when a
teenage driver, Demetrius Kirkland,
sped through the parking lot at East
Gadsden High School striking them
both. A cousin, James Payne, said
Cynthia tried to save her girls by first


pushing 18-year-old Joycelyn out of the
way and tried desperately to pull Crystal
out of the path of the stolen 2000
Infiniti.
"Crystal was just beginning to come
out of her shell and become social. She
was always so quiet and you had to
make her talk. This year, with
cheerleading, she was blossoming,"
Clary said. And her parents were right
there with her. Last Thursday night
Cynthia was busy making brownies for
the squad. There was lag time between
the homecoming parade in Havana and
the game, and Cynthia felt the girls
needed refreshments.
She also stayed with the girls for the
homecoming dance. "She never dropped
Crystal off. Whatever she participated
in, her mother was right there. They
were very protective and loving parents.'
In the beginning some of the girls teased
Crystal about her mom being there all of
the time, but it wasn't long before they
all thought it was cool," Clary said.
She was with her daughters Friday
night when the tragedy occurred. "The
dance was over and they were walking
to the car. There was nothing she could
do to save her baby," she said.
Cynthia, who is still in the hospital


recuperating from injuries, had surgery
on her hip Sunday afternoon and she has
a number of cuts to her legs and back. A


time. Her condition has been upgraded
but she needs rest.
"Crystal was a daddy's girl. When you


Cynthia Riley Crystal Riley
full recovery is expected, but it will take would see John, you would see her. He's


having a tough time of it right now, he
always referred to his wife and the girls
as 'his babies', Payne said.
"Crystal was special. I'm not just
saying that either. Before she was born
the doctor came in and told Cynthia and
John that it would be her or Crystal. We
left the room so that she and her
husband could talk, when we came back
in they were on their knees praying.
After the baby made it through, they
knew she was a gift from God," Clary
said.
The entire family is "coping"
according to Clary. Their emotions are
running the gamut. "I hate to say this,
but there are times when I am hurt and
there are times when I'm just angry. We
have a large family and we are helping
each other make it through this," she
said.
Only a few weeks ago, the family
buried their matriarch, Lee Bertha
Barkley. Clary said the family was still
dealing with the grandmother's passing
and now they have to let Crystal go,
only able to keep the memory of the
family's quiet, special child in their
hearts.
Funeral services for Crystal have not
been finalized.


Qiiincy gives OK for 70-lot I*L


mixed-use subdivision .. .,


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

The Quincy City Commission
voted Tuesday night to allow the
North Florida Education and
Development Corporation
(NFEDC) to develop a 92 acre
tract of land south of town on
property annexed into the city in
2004. The property has been
divided into 70 residential lots.
The development will provide
for single-family, detached hous-
ing, single-family attached hous-
ing (townhouses), multi-family
housing, neighborhood commer-
cial space, and open recreation
space. Several people attended
the meeting in opposition to the
development, according to Jack
McLean, city attorney.
"They basically felt that that
many units would disturb the
quality of life in their rural set-
ting. They were also concerned
about the traffic that would be
generated on Cox Lane.
The city's Building and


Planning Department reviewed
the subdivision for compliance
with the city's land development
regulations. NFEDC has entered
into an agreement to ensure that
the access off Cox Lane will be
paved to Pat Thomas Parkway at
the same time the development is
completed or before. All utilities
to the subdivision's 70 single
family homes will be provided by
the city.
In other matters, commission-
ers denied. Derrick Butler's
request to hold a car show on cit,
property south of town. The city
manager receommended in early
spring that commissioners not
allow any more activities on the
property until improvements
could be made. However, those
improvements were not made,
(tearing down the barn, a shed,
and fencing off the pond area) in
time for Butler's request.
The city, in partnership with a
local church, will sponsor the
First Annual Fall Festival on
Ward's Lot, at the comer of North

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

By Alice DuPont, Editor


Contemp.


We've made a lot of progress

on domestic violence here.


This is the first year since 199, when a
monument was dedicated to those who lost
their lives due to domestic violence, that
Gadsden County will not have another
name etched in granite. Knock on wood, as
the saying goes.
The annual "Speak Out" Against
Domestic Violence will be held on the
Courthouse Square Thursday, October 26.
This year the Gadsden County Domestic
Violence and Sexual Abuse Task Force is
planning a celebration to mark the absence
of deaths due to domestic violence. The
celebration will begin at 4 p.m. with the
program starting at 5:30 p.m. All of
Gadsden County should be happy that we
have reached a milestone. The public is
invited.
Some say that maybe the awareness and
education programs through print media
and through the electronic media have
helped. It has taken years for us to get
here.
Others attribute the decline to more
aggressive law enforcement. If the
authorities come to your house on a
domestic violence call, someone is going
to jail. Long gone are the days when
people were told to "just cool off' or
officers looked the other way and
pretended not to see black eyes. The
medical community has also gotten into
the act, and police and counselors are
called when a woman shows up in the
emergency room or in a doctor'.s office
with unexplained bruises, bumps and
broken bones.
There was a time when Gadsden County
rivaled Leon County for the number of
domestic violence homicides. And we
were way, way out in front of the other
counties in our region.


Although we have made a lot of progress
in Gadsden County, the national statistics
are still sobering. Too many women are
still battered by husbands and boyfriends.
Here are the cold facts:
*Batttering incidents occur every 15
seconds in the United States.
'*Battering is the most under-reported
crime in the country.
B.ii:-i iii.g is rarely an isolated incident.
*Battered women are more likely to
suffer from depression, anxiety,
drug/alcohol abuse, and psychiatric
problems.
*Attempted suicide and particularly
multiple attempts are significantly higher
among abused women.
*Twenty-five percent of women who are
beaten are pregnant.
*Men commit 98 percent of assaults.
*Adult to adult domestic violence is
experienced by more than 15 million
women and men annually in the Unites
States.
*More than 4,000 women are killed each
year at the hands of their batterers. Many
thousands more are physically, mentally,
and spiritually disabled as a result of
"complication" due to long-term abuse.
*Incidents of domestic abuse among
women with disabilities may be as high as
85 per cent nationally.
*One out of two marriages has at least
one episode of domestic violence. In one
out of five marriages, the violence will be
on-going with five or more incidents per
year.
*Physical abuse by male social partners
is the single most common source of injury
among women, more common than auto
accidents, muggings or rapes by strangers
combined.

A


Crudmudgens...that must be

anything that's not football.


The recent Homecoming football game
prompted someone to ask about my most
memorable Homecoming event. They
politely stopped short of saying I was
getting old, but they had to go on and add
"you must have,so many what with all the
Homecomings you have experienced over
the years."
Listen, I was just two wagons back and
waving to the little kids that lined the
parade route when the fight broke out
between Mary E. Pendleton and Trudy
Roblear. That was around 1964....but folks
are still talking about it up in that neck of
the woods.
Ricky Lynn said later it had been building
for weeks. Mary E. and Arlo Cunningham
had dated pretty steady for most of the
summer. We had some couples in the
school who seemed made for each other.
Rick Wright and Ruth Crocker were a
perfect match. Bobby Brewer and Nola
Purcell just looked like they belonged
together. Wesley Beal and Ann Carol
McCaleb were both good looking and
athletic. Mary E. and Arlo didn't fit in the
"right match" dating game. Mary E. was a
little big for her age....and pushy. Arlo was
skinny as a rail and bashful as a possum in
the sunshine.
And now that Ricky mentioned it, I had
seen Trudy and Arlo conversing in the
back of Miss Polly's fourth period class. I
figured they were just trying to make sense
out of what that Chaucer guy was trying to
pass off as English. And I heard that Mary
E. and Arlo had gotten into some kind of
shouting contest after lunch one day but
Mary E. was always shouting about
something.
I was trying to focus on the Milan High
Bulldogs and, as Coach Scott reminded us
every five seconds or so, not to get "caught
up in this Homecoming stuff'. Course, I
kinda needed a date for the dance. I asked
Pam Collins. She laughed. I always thought
her eyes set a little too close together....
"If you get your minds right," I can hear
Coach Scott's Monday afternoon pre-
practice speech like it was yesterday,
"There ain't nothing this team can't do. But
you can't get side tracked with all this
Homecoming crudmudgen! We've got to


focus on the Bulldogs! The game is the
only thing that matters!"
I asked Ruth Ann Wiley to the dance. She
stuttered and stammered and then quicldy
remembered that her first cousin from
Paducah was coming to spend the week-
end. Ruth Ann wore too much make up to
suit me anyway....
"What is crudmudgen?" Billy Barksdale
was beside me as we lined up for the
opening calisthenics. I had never heard of
the word.
"I think," we were pairing off for the
board drills when John Ingram answered,
"it's anything that is not football."
"I thought he was quoting Chaucer."
At the end of practice we gathered up
around Coach Scott, "Men, those Milan
Bulldogs are just four days away! Don't let
them come in here and take anything from
you! And for goodness sakes, keep your
focus! Don't get caught up in the
crudmudgen!"
I asked Charlotte Melton if she'd like to
go to the dance. "Uh....oh....Kes...uh...I've
got a rodeo over in Sikeston and 1 may not
get back in time." Charlotte was a little too
short for my.taste....
I didn't think too much about it on
Tuesday when I saw Arlo come out of the
lunch room talking to Trudy. I knew Mary
E. went on the home economics field trip.
And I figured in study hall Wednesday
Trudy was just giving Arlo a little help
with his Spanish.
I had more pressing things. 1 had to get
ready for the Bulldogs. And I asked Jane
Hill to the dance. "I'm sorry Kes, but
daddy said he would kill me if I ever went
out with you." I don't know to this day if
I'm still mad at Jane....or Mr. Hill....
Wednesday night at the float Arlo was
handing them little streamer things to both
Mary E. and Trudy! I didn't hang around
long. Too much crudmudgen! I moseyed
over to the sophomore float to see if
Cynthia Wheat had a date for the dance.
Thursday night at the pep rally I could
tell Mary E. wasn't happy about
something. I figured she was just working
herself up into a frenzy over the invading

Nothing to cheer about...just

a stupid waste of human lives.


What happened Friday night was
such a stupid waste of human lives it
boggles the mind.
It was actually early Saturday
morning, just after midnight, when a
16-year-old Quincy youth and his 17-
year-old cohort cruised through the
parking lot at East Gadsden High
School, ostensibly to show off the
Infiniti they had just stolen in
Tallahassee. Why they were driving so
erratically in a parking lot packed with
cars left there by homecoming game
spectators is anybody's guess.
As you know by now, Gadsden
County sheriff's deputy Ronnie
Williams tried to put a stop to it and
was almost run over for his efforts as
the young driver accelerated,
backwards, hitting six parked cars
before plowing into Crystal Riley and
her mother.
And Crystal, fresh from a school
dance celebrating the victory she
helped cheer on, was killed.
Her mother is recovering in the
hospital from injuries she sustained in
the crash, but it will take far longer for
her to recover from that most serious
injury.
If there is a place safer for a 15-year-
old cheerleader to be at midnight than
at home, or maybe church, or with her
mother at a school event thronged with
deputies, hired security guards and
school chaperones, I can't think of one.
But that's a fallacy these days, I guess,
that any of us are guaranteed safety
anywhere.
What I find hard to wrap my mind
around is the fact that these two boys
apparently felt entitled after at least
one of them, the driver, spent several
months in a juvenile detention center -
to steal someone else's property, take it
on a joy ride and then use it as a deadly
weapon.


In an instant, a group of teenagers
that had moments before been
celebrating the school's victory, maybe
worrying whether their hair looked OK
or trying to muster up the nerve to ask
somebody to dance, went from normal
rite of passage to nightmare scene.
That the two youths in the car were
apparently, according to Florida
Highway Patrol reports, not impaired
by drugs or alcohol actually makes it
all a bit scarier.
Did they feel remorse as they sped
off, or only adrenaline? Did teachers
who have seen others go down the
same path heave a sigh of resignation,
or vow to keep fighting a thankless
battle? A sense of entitlement, and an
accompanying lack of respect for
authority, can come from one of two
places, I've decided: Deficit or excess.
The outcome of either depends as
much on the individual as it does the
circumstance, and I don't know what
this pair's was. Lack of consequences
for adverse actions can lead to a
repetition of them, but these two had
earned consequences for at least one
thing by virtue of their time in juvenile
detention and they will have to live
with what they did for the rest of their
lives. The driver, 16-year-old
Demetrius Kirkland, will be tried as an
adult.
It makes me want us all to do better -
to teach our kids boundaries early, to
reach out to needy families, to be
better examples if we need to and to
share our secrets of success if we
don't. It makes me mad about the
incalculable number of things that are
completely beyond our control.
It makes me sad for the Riley family,
and for the rest of us, too.

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

Letters
E to the


Vote 'Yes'


on


health care

Letter to the Editor:

As president of the Gadsden
Citizens for Quality Healthcare
(PAC), I am proud to say that as
citizens of Gadsden County we
will be able to take care of our
own health needs. On November
7th we will be given the
opportunity to vote YES to the
last referendum on the back page
of the ballot. When you vote
YES you will be giving the
uninsured and under insured an
opportunity to have primary/
preventative health care
coverage. Gadsden County has
over 10,000 citizens who have
little or no healthcare coverage.
Voting yes will give
Chattahoochee, Greensboro
Gretna, Havana, Midway, and
Quincy the opportunity to have
their own primary care
physicians located locally. When
there is a need these physicians
will be able to refer our citizens
to other specialists for special
treatment. Dental services will
also be provided in the county.
Once passed, this process will
take time, but the Gadsden
County Community Health
Council, Inc. will oversee the
process and the County Clerk's
office will be the administrator of
the revenues collected. When this
referendum is passed, everyone
will pay for healthcare coverage
including the tourists and non-
resident while shopping in the
county.

What are the benefits of this
program and what will the 1/2
cent sales tax help do for our
citizens?
The quality of life and health
of county residents will improve..
Inappropriate use of Hospital
Emergency Dept. will be
reduced.
The escalation of healthcare
cost and the cost shifting of
uncompensated care will be
slowed.
Workforce productivity will
increase. Workforce absenteeism
and turnover will decrease.
County general revenue can
be freed up for more countywide
beneficial services and programs
for all citizens.

As a life time resident of
Gadsden County, it is a
wonderful feeling to determine
our own healthcare fate. I am
sure that you know someone who
is without medical coverage.
Your YES vote can provide
healthcare coverage for your
friends, neighbors, sisters,
brothers, cousins, or parents.

Join the Gadsden Citizens for
Quality Healthcare (PAC)
committee and vote YES on
November 7th for the 1/2 cent
sales tax. Thank you in advance
for helping to make Gadsden
County Citizens healthy with a
YES vote

Arrie M. Battle, Chairperson,
Gadsden Citizens for Quality
Healthcare (PAC)

Gadsden

County, we

need to Pray

In times like this we need the
Lord to help us. I lost my little
cousin Friday night. Why is not
the question, but how'? I do know
that when it is our time, it is our
time. What is so painful is that
she was just asking me at the
game, "do you want to buy a
pomn-pom?" I'm glad that I
bought the pom-pom because it is
the last pom-pom that my little
cousin sold. To my family, the
Barkleys, to the Hayes and the
Rileys, my prayers are with you,
and may God continue to bless
each and every one of us.
This was a tragic accident, and
it is tragic that our family is not
close like we should be. Crystal
and my daughter Sha'Quavious
were friends. They met in the
sixth grade and had no idea that

6 The Gadsden County Times October 12, 2006


October is domestic violence awareness month


Gadsden cautiously celebrates year without death


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
It's called the cycle of violence.
Each year women who stay in abusive
relationships go through the cycle
many, many times before they leave.
Some never leave.
Others leave on a stretcher for the
hospital and, sadly, others leave on a
one-way trip to the cemetery.
October is Domestic Violence
Awareness Month. And those who work
to make sure women are safe say the
vigil must continue. And, while for the
first time in several years, there has not
been a death attributed to domestic vio-
lence so far in Gadsden County.
The local Refuge House coordinator,
Carnell Jones, is keeping her fingers
crossed.
"I almost hate to talk about it. I'm
afraid that if we talk about it something
might happen," she said. No onre has
been killed, but Jones said that many
more battered women are seeking serv-


ices. That's good, she said, because that
mean they're seeking help and are not
staying until it's too late.
Some women, Jones said, still
haven't faced the facts about their con-
ditions. "There are still a lot of women
out there who think that it is their fault
when they are battered. We see women
who often say that it they had not made
him angry, he would not have explod-
ed," she said. The truth is, he woud
have exploded anyway, because it did-
n't matter what she did or did not do.
The Cycle of Violence goes like this:
There is the tension building stage
when the woman often denies what is
happening. He may start nitpicking or
become moody, he will withdraw his
affection, become sullen, drinks or uses
drugs, puts her down, yells and criti-
cizes her.
She may attribute his behavior to
work pressures, blame herself and
attempt to calm him. She agrees with
him or tries to reason with him, she will


keep the children quiet or cook his
favorite meal in order to calm him as
she tries to reason with him.
Everyone in the house is "walking
on eggshells" except him.
Then there is the explosion when he
begins hitting, choking, humiliating her
and there is usually a certain amount of
verbal abuse that goes along with
imprisonment, rape, and beatings.
It is at this stage when the woman
will deny her injuries and refer to them
as minor or make statements like "I
bruise easily". She may blame his
behavior on his drinking and tell herself
that "he's only abusive" when he
drinks.
He, on the other hand, often blames
the woman by saying she provoked him
or that she "had it coming."
Then, there is the honeymoon when
he apologizes and promise that it will
never happen again. He may beg for
forgiveness, promise to get counseling,
promise to go to church, sends her


flowers or other gifts, some even cry.
Through all of this, the woman will
attempt to minimize the situation. She
often agrees to stay with him or take
him back and will stop legal proceed-
ings if they have begun. Finally, she
believes he has changed. That is, until
the cycle begins again.
One local woman, whom I will not
identify in this article, said she stayed
with her husband for so long because
she thought their problems were due to
his drinking. "I thought that if he quit
(drinking) things would be okay. I kept
thinking I could fix things, even though
I had no control over him," she said.
She said she thought she loved him
and if she removed herself from the
.relationship, she would be giving up on
him. "I also did not want others to know
that I'd failed. I let them believe every-
thing was okay. I (also) thought he
would .beat me up if I left and would
follow me. He also told me once that if
I left, he would 'hunt me down and kill


me'."
But most telling, and the reason
many women say they remain in abu-
sive relationships is because of her
child. She finally realized she was
wrong.
"Children, even infants, are aware of
abuse in the home. The effects are phys-
ical and emotional and can last their
whole lives," she wrote. Here are some
of the things she learned from her situ-
ation and she hopes that it will help
other women:
My child's welfare comes first.
It was not my fault. I have nothing
to feel guilty about.
My friends and family will be
there when I need them. I can ask for
help, if I need it.
Even though things seem unsettled
now, I am much better off than I was
before.

House and how to get help, call 627-

Former Quincy Police Chief R.D. Edwards (left) was on hand
Friday afternoon to wish Major Glenn Beach well in his retire-
ment. (Photo by Alice DuPont)



Beach trades badge


for 'honey-do' list


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
Thirty-eight years ago, fresh
out of the Army and fresh-faced
to boot, Glenn Beach walked
into the office of then Quincy
police chief, R.D. Edwards, and
asked for a job.
"He was the kind of person I
was looking for: young, smart,
clean-cut, and willing to work
hard. I've never been disap-
pointed," Edwards said Friday
afternoon as family, friends, and
co-workers gathered for a recep-
tion in honor of Beach's retire-
ment. About 80 people attended
the affair in the city commission
meeting room at city hall.
Throughout his career, Beach
worked under four chiefs,
including Edwards. "Roger
Griswold, Rodney Moore and
Gerald McSwain were the
chiefs I worked under," he said.
He worked his way up through
the ranks starting as patrol and
ending as a major.
There have been a lot of
changes in law enforcement
since Beach started but the most
pronounced to him was simple:
copying. He recalled typing
reports on stencils and loading
them onto a manual machine
and rolling the stencil over a
cylinder to make copies. When
you made a mistake, you made
the correction and started all
over," he said. Other, more
important advances, have come
with DNA testing and the way
records are kept.
At 60 and in good health,
Beach said he may pursue
"something else" later but first
he's going to spend time with
his 11 grandchildren and do
some of the things they want to
do. "The Lord's been good to
me. I'll do whatever he has put
in my path from here," he said.
And while he isn't exactly sure
what path he will take he has not
ruled law enforcement out all
together.


One event he is looking for-
ward to is a vacation. Beach said
he's had only had one vacation
in the 38 years he has been with
the department. "You have to
remember that for 33 of those
years I was with the National
Guard so I used my vacation
when it was time for training,"
he said. For the immediate
future, however, Beach will join
his wife, Linda, at a church
retreat.
What he will do next all
depends on Linda's "honey-do"
list. "After I've done the things
she wants done around the
house, we're going to spend a
few weeks in the mountains of
north Georgia relaxing," he said.

announced Friday.
Wade, 26, turned herself in to
the Leon County jail Thursday
on felony charges relating to
failure to file tax returns and pay
tax. If convicted, she faces up to
five years in prison and up to
$5,000 in fines, as well as possi-
ble repayment of stolen tax,
interest, penalty, and investiga-
tive costs. The restaurant is now
closed. '
According to Revenue
Department investigators, Wade
routinely collected tax from cus-
tomers at her business.
However, during various peri-
ods between August 2004 and
September 2005, Wade failed to
send in to the state all of the
taxes that she had collected.
Investigators found that Wade
had illegally kept $4, 813.77 in
tax money. Under state law,
sales tax is the property of the
state at the moment of collec-
tion. Department of Revenue
staff repeatedly visited and
called Wade in an attempt to
help her come into compliance
with state tax law, but she failed
to meet her legal obligations.

Stewart St. School: Flu nothing to sneeze at


by Leslie Roberts
Times News Editor

Educators told Stewart
Street Elementary students
something Friday they might
have been happy to hear: Stay
home if you are ill.
As part of a "Flu-Free
School" campaign promoted by
the Gadsden and Leon County
health departments and the
American Red Cross, students
learned what the flu is, how it
spreads, who should be vacci-
nated against it and how to pro-
tect themselves from it.
"If you're sick, stay home,"
Miller said. "Tell your parents
what you've learned today it's
very important that adults know
as well as the children how to
prevent the flu."
Miller and others also told
children to wash their hands fre-
quently, cover their mouths and
noses when they coughed or
sneezed and to avoid close con-
tact with people who have the
flu if possible.
Byrd said Stewart Street is
the first school in Gadsden
County to be designated a "Flu-
Free School," and that the event
was designed to bring attention
to the fact that.it's flu season.


Rick Miller, Leon County Health Department public health
preparedness and response coordinator for Franklin, Gadsden
and Liberty counties, hands out prizes to kids who answered
questions correctly as Gadsden County Health Department

School" presentation. The American Red Cross also participat-
ed in the event. (Photo by Leslie Roberts)


"Schools tend to be one of
the best places for the flu to get
passed around," Byrd said. "The
emphasis is to try to prevent flu
from going around."
Flu season runs from late fall
through early spring. The best
,time to get a vaccination against
it, according to literature from
the American Lung Association,
is September through
November. The flu season usu-
ally peaks between December
and early March.
The flu is very contagious'
and can cause severe illness in
the young, the elderly and those
with chronic conditions like dia-
betes or asthma. Those people -
children under 5, adults over 50,
those with chronic illness and
health-care workers, are advised
to get the vaccine.
Maxim Health Systems is
offering several flu shot clinics
in the area this fall. They accept
Medicare part B and cash pay-
ments.
There will be a flu clinic at
Harvey's in Havana Oct. 12
from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.; at Winn-
Dixie in Quincy Nov. 4 from 10
a.m. to 2 p.m.; and at Walgreens
Drug Store in Quincy Nov. 14
from 1-4 p.m.

Piggly Wiggly, officials celebrate new jobs, USDA grant


With the marching band from East Gadsden High School playing
and a man dressed in an oversized pig costume, the Piggly Wiggly
Grocery Store held its official ribbon cutting and dedication ceremony
last Wednesday morning.
Gadsden County and City of Quincy officials, along with about 100
inembers of the public, the local business community, and representa-
tives from the United States Department of Agriculture also celebrat-
ed the completion of an infrastructure upgrade project.
The store, located on Blue Star Highway west of the Quincy city
limits, was able to open because of a $266,877 United States
Department of Agriculture grant. This enabled store owners Roy
Moore and Kevin McDaniel to pay for the infrastructure project: a left
turn lane off of U.S. Highway 90 with an associated driveway and
sidewalks, and a stormwater retention pond.
"Drainage and turning lanes aren't sexy, but they are a necessity,"
said USDA Rural Development State Director Charles Clemons.
"Investing in basic community infrastructure supports President
Bush's vision for a strong and vibrant rural America where communi-
ties can prosper and opportunities exist for new businesses and
increased numbers of jobs." ,Many communities, he said, don't have
the capital for critical infrastructure improvements needed to support
economic vitality.
Clemons heaped praise on Nancy Gee, the county's grants coordi-
nator, for the "time, effort, and work" she put into getting the grant
application and other necessary documents in on time.
"This is only the start. Teamwork is the key. If we all work togeth-
er we can do great things," said Rep. Marti Coley (R-Marianna), refer-
ring to the partnerships between the county, city, state and federal
agencies "The key to securing our fate is in hiring in your hometown."
Moore said when the store began taking employment applications,
approximately 600 people applied for the 100 jobs available. "And we
hired the best we could find in Gadsden County and we have some
good people," he said.
g "From day one they've been on board with us. We have a good
e ew and I thank everyone who was involved' in this endeavor,"
McDaniel said. He said he was told that he would have trouble renting
q the main parcels rented. He drew a hefty round of applause when he
said he is in talks with Wendy's and Dairy Queen about the out parcels
of property. Other stores in the plaza will include a Old Mexico restau-
rhnt, a drycleaners/laundry, Aaron's Rental and Sales, a hair and nail
salon, check cashing/lottery center, Chinese and seafood restaurant.
Gadsden County is a State Enterprise Zone as well as being desig-
nated a Florida Rural Area of Critical Economic Concern. To date, the
improvements have made possible the opening of the first major gro-
cery store chain the western part of the county. "The grand opening
illustrates the positive economic impact of the Rural Business
Enterprise Grant in bringing increased economic opportunity to the
are," said Mary Miles, area technician for the Rural Development area
office in Marianna.
County Commissioner Brenda Holt said the project is not about
individuals but "about the people of Gadsden County."

The Gadsden County Times October 12, 2006 9


Teen dies

Continued from Page 1
East Gadsden won its
homecoming game against Taylor
County under an orange harvest

After the game, Crystal and
many other students went to a
school-sponsored dance, where
her mother, Cynthia Riley, was a
chaperone. Gadsden County
Sheriff's deputies and security
guards hired for the event kept
watch and directed traffic after
the dance ended around
midnight.
Then hell ascended the school
parking lot, the tiny cheerleader
lost her life and homecoming
turned horrific.
"It was still very crowded the
dance had just let out and there
was a large population of people
there, parents picking up
students," said GCSO deputy
Ronnie Williams, who is also
assistant principal at the school.
"I saw a car driving and stopping,
driving and stopping. I tried to
stop them and they refused and
drove on, but they got stuck in a
bottleneck of traffic. They backed
up at a high rate of speed. I
almost got hit. They kept backing
up and hit six cars. Then they hit
Crystal and her mother."
Havoc ensued as Williams
called for an ambulance and an
AirMed helicopter and asked
deputy Zach Woods, who was
also on the scene, to follow the
car.
Crystal died at Tallahassee
Memorial Hospital; her mother
remains in critical but stable
condition. Crystal's 18-year-old
sister, Jocelyn, witnessed the
entire thing.
The 16-year-old driver of the
car, a 2000 Infiniti that is
believed to have been stolen in
Tallahassee, sped away from the
scene with his 17-year-old
passenger. Both live in Quincy.
Meanwhile, Sheriff Morris
Young arrived at the high school
and issued an order that the
suspects be pursued until they
were caught.
"I left home and went straight
to the scene from .there," Young
said. "I met the family at the
hospital. The father embraced me
and told me, 'They took my
baby.' Is told him, 'I can assure
you we will not rest until we find
these two."'
According to Gadsden County
Schools Superintendent Reginald
James, the driver, Demetrius



Midway

Continued from Page 1
his pay rate based on calls she'd
had from constituents.
"Citizens didn't feel like it was
fair that he was paid that much
and did not have a certificate,"
she said. "They kept calling me,
and I said, 'OK, we're going to
work on it.'"
The state granted Morris a
provisional building code
administrator license Sept. 14
which will be good through 2009.
In other business Thursday, a
motion to approve a preliminary
plat for Taylor Ridge subdivision
failed for lack of a second.
Developer Dustin Koonce
proposed several months ago a
33-lot, 25-acre subdivision off
Knight Road. Residents have
protested the development,
however, saying Knight Road is
too narrow to handle any
additional traffic.
And also on Thursday, the
Council voted to co-sponsor


Kirkland, has served some time
in a juvenile detention facility in
Tallahassee during the past year
and enrolled in Carter-Parramore
Academy after his release. He
was not enrolled in the Gadsden
County school system at the time
of the wreck.
While in pursuit of Kirkland,
Woods called for back up; GCSO
Investigator Ulysses Jenkins was
one of the first to respond.
Deputies chased the car across
U.S. 90 to Strong Road, from
there to High Bridge Road, on to
Old Federal Road and then to
Spooner Road. The car crashed
on Carter Road in the Shiloh
community; Kirkland fled, and
his passenger was apprehended at
the scene. No charges were filed
against the passenger.
Once the driver fled on foot,
around 15 GCSO deputies were
involved in the search, along with
a canine unit from Apalachee
Correctional Institute in Sneads,
a Leon County Sheriff's Office
helicopter and the Florida
Highway Patrol.
They found Kirkland at a home
in Gretna around four hours later
and believe he either arranged to
be picked up or hitchhiked his
way there. He was taken into
-custody and transported to the
Leon County Detention Center.
Young said he will be tried as an
adult. Kirkland was moved to the
Gadsden County Jail Monday,
where he is being held in lieu of
$250,000 bond.
The 16-year-old was charged
with vehicular homicide, grand
theft auto, leaving the scene of a
crash involving a death, driving
without a driver's license causing
death, aggravated assault with .a
motor vehicle, fleeing and
attempting to elude and burglary
of a conveyance.
Grief counselors met with
students at EGHS Monday, their
second trip to the school in less
than two months. EGHS junior
Camellia Byrd, 16, was killed
Aug. 19 when the car she was a
passenger in crashed into a tree
on Brickyard Road in Midway.
The driver of that car, Tercina
Jordan, 19, was charged last
week with DUI manslaughter and
several other crimes in
connection with the wreck.
James called Crystal's death
"tragic", and said she was a top-
notch student.
"It's just a senseless thing," he
said. "Our deepest condolences
go out to the family. We will
mourn the loss of Crystal she
was a model student and loved by
many."

Hilltop Homeowners'
Association in doing research on
building a public charter school
in Midway.
The request is in accordance
with Senate House Bill 135,
which provides for the
establishment of the Florida
Schools of Excellence
Commission as a charter school
authorizing entity and provides
powers and duties of the
commission, including serving as
a sponsor of charter schools,
approving certain entities to act
as co-sponsors, approving or
denying applications for Florida
Schools of Excellence (FSE)
charter schools and developing
standards for and evaluating the
performance of co-sponsors and
charter schools.
In other action, council
members voted against Mayor
Pro Tem Ella Barber's request for
a second audit.
"It would cost $20,000 for a
new audit," Madison said. "The
last one we had made the fourth
perfect audit for the city."


A shaken Angela Sapp, varsity
cheerleading coach at EGHS,
said Tuesday Crystal was a "pint-
sized bundle of love. She was
always willing to do anything we
asked her."
And Williams described Crystal
as "very cooperative, a very good
student with a very pleasing
personality who was well-liked
by all her peers."
He said the mood was somber
at East Gadsden Monday.
"As a law enforcement officer,
usually I go to a crash and I don't
know anybody with this, these
are actual students I had to come
back to Monday and feel their
pain. My secretary is a sister to
Mrs. Riley," he said. "Everybody
was upset and teary today. It's a
family we will all work through
it ... and I want to say this: We
don't need to wait too long to tell
our loved ones that we care for
them and we love them.
Something like this happens and
it's too late."

Quincy Fire

Department

announces Fire

Prevention Week

activities

In an effort to battle home fires
before they start in Quincy, the
fire department is taking a lead
role in NFPA's Fie Prevention
Week, October 8 14. By hosting
an Open House that will entertain
and educate the public, the fire
department hopes to raise
awareness of key fire safety
issues, helping attendees prevent
fires and fire injuries, especially
at home.
"Many people don't realize that
they are at greater danger from
fire at home than anywhere else,"
says Chief Howard Smith.
"Fortunately, there are many
things residents can do to turn
that around and make their
homes safer. Fire Prevention
Week is the time where we reach
out to the community one-on-
one, teaching people of every age
how to prevent fires. This year
our theme is "Prevent cooking
fires. Watch what you heat"
According to Chief Howard
Smith, the fire department, has
lined up the following Fire
Prevention Week activity for
residents:

OPEN HOUSE AT THE
QUINCY FIRE
DEPARTMENT FRIDAY,
OCTOBER 13th. 4 7 PM


Fire Prevention Week has been
sponsored by the National Fire
Protection Association (NFPA)

for 84 years and is proclaimed
by the President of the United
States each year.
The longest running safety
commemoration is the premier
fire safety program of the fire
service, drawing the
participation of the Quincy Fire
department and other fire
departments in the U.S. and
Canada.
NFPA selected the 2006 Fire
Prevention Week theme in order'
to highlight a growing home fire
concern. The theme "Prevent
Cooking Fires, Watch what you
heat" is a memorable and
effective safety message.
Home cooking fires have rfsen
steadily over the last decade.
In addition to watching what
you heat, Quincy residents are
urged to ensure that smoke
alarms are installed on every
level of the home and kept
working with monthly testing
and annual battery replacement.
All smoke alarms should be
replaced with a new unit after
10 years. Each member of the
household needs to know the
fire escape plan, and all should
practice it twice a year.
We look forward to seeing you
Oct. 13, 4 7 PM at the Quincy
Fire Department.


Authorities need the public's help in finding anyone associated
with the 1994 Buick Skylark linked to the death. The car sought is
similar to this one.


Battles

Continued from Page 1:
number 181 VKK please call the GCSO at 850-627-9233 or Crime,
Stoppers at 850-891-HELP," he said. Also, anyone in the Havana
missing a container with gasoline is asked to contact GCSO.
The car, which has been located in Georgia, had a missing tail light
and a missing front hubcap. Jenkins said it is important to find out if
anyone observed the car with or without Battles in or around it. She
was last reported seen Saturday morning in Tallahassee.
He said the woman is the mother or three minor children and the.
family is distraught over the turn of events.
Jenkins said that Battles' live-in boyfriend and her husband have
been very cooperative, but "right now everyone is a suspect."

"We have found

that a law enforce-

the community

can do two things:

it makes the law

better and it lets

the criminals know

that their activities

Sheriff making law visible


with 'community outreach'


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor


Sheriff Morris Young took his health and safe-
ty show on the road last week. This time is was to
Sawdust Park.
"We have found that a law enforcement pres-
ence in the community can do two things: it makes
the law abiding citizens feel better and it lets the
criminals know that their activities are watched,"
Young. said.
Young is also partnering with a group of citi-
zens who want to make their community safe. The
Sawdust Community Outreach, with Wayne
Williams as chairman, was formed about five
years ago after a young man was gunned down is
broad daylight. Several people were in their yards
at the time of the shooting, but it took several
years to track down the killer. Some in law
enforcement said people were afraid to come for-
ward for fear of retaliation.
The community was also plagued with drug
dealers and other criminals. "We wanted to take
our community back and that's why we formed
this group. We want anything and everything that
was not good for our community out," said Avis
Woods.
The groups meets twice a month on Saturdays
to provide information to the community, to offer
tutoring to children, and to keep the park safe and
clean. Recently, the community was awarded a
$181,000 state grant to upgrade and beautify the
park.
Throughout the day deputies delivered infor-
mation door-to-door and also talked with residents
about driving and home safety as well as informa-
tion on hurricane preparedness. According to
deputies, after the door-to-door visits some resi-
dents still say that illegal drug sales in the commu-
nity are a problem.
Woods said that while she and the members of

Sawdust Community Outreach appreciate the
efforts made by the Gadsden County Sheriff's
Office, she is disappointed with the community
turnout. "We have to get people out, get their
attention, and get them involved if we are going
take our community back," Woods said.
The partnership, as Woods sees it, is an excel-
lent opportunity to bridge the generation gap. "I.
have children and my mother is elderly. What we
want is a community where old people are not
afraid to come out of their homes and where chil-
dren can play safely," she said.
The group realizes that it cannot turn the
Sawdust Community around in a short period of
time. "It takes time. We're trying to be proactive
rather than reactive. We know that anything worth
having is worth working for and this community is
certainly worth working for," Woods said.

of its 24th season, "big, The
Musical." with a second weekend
of shows at The Leaf Theatre
tonight, Friday and Saturday, Oct.
12, 13 and 14 at 8 p.m. with a
Sunday matinee Oct. 15 at 3 p.m.

"big," a frustrated adolescencent,
Josh Baskin, makes a wish to be
"big" and astonishes his best
friend Billy when he wakes up in

Reality sets in immediately as
Josh discovers that there is much
more to being an adult than he
bargained for and learns that we
must all grow up at our own pace.
"big, The Musical" is a
vibrant, funny and touching
musical based on the witty, mov-
ing and insightful book by John
Weidman. The dazzling, ener-
getic, heartfelt and contemporary
score was written by David Shire
and Richard Maltby, Jr. makes
this already classic motion pic-
ture fantasy an unforgettable the-
atrical experience. This Quincy
Music Theatre production is
directed by Jimmy Kontos with
musical direction by Maria
Hanvy.

The big mistake, Ricky Lynn
said after it was all over, was
putting Mary E. right in
front of Trudy in the parade.
The parade started at school. And
then it meandered down to town,
looped around the square and
made its way back up Stonewall
Street and ended beside the
elementary school. The football
players all rode together on Mr.
Brooks' big flat bedded wagon. I
was the last one on-I was trying
to get LaRenda Bradfield's
attention to see if she wanted to
go to the dance. So I didn't notice
the commotion up ahead until Mr.
Brooks abruptly put on the
brakes.
We hadn't even gotten to the
Presbyterian Church! No one was
right sure whether Trudy said
something or if Mary E. just
picked that moment to "explain
some things" to her about Arlo.
Witnesses on both sides of the
street said later that Mary E.
turned loose of those painted blue
bulldogs, spun around, and
jumped right across the hood of
Nicky Joe Stafford's Corvette and
grabbed Trudy by the hair. Trudy
was giving up about forty pounds
but she had hauled hay and
cleared ditches with the rest of us
for years. She wasn't about to lay
down here!
They tumbled out of the car and
rolled up on the curb swinging
and gouging and kicking. We all
jumped off the wagon and
sprinted tothe scene. Mr.

verification, according to state and federal
regulations.
Williams said such arrangements are not unusual
and that once the hospital is open, such an
arrangement will make for a smooth transition.
TMH will be paid $7,000 per month to run the
center and they will keep 12 percent of the gross
collections or the fair market value for billing
services. The county will pay TMH within 30 days
of the submitted invoices.
The agreement stipulates that the county will
maintain full financial responsibility for the center.
The agreement between the county and TMH is for
one year beginning October 10, 2006 for a period of
one year, ending at midnight on October 9, 2007. At
the end of the second year, the agreement will
automatically renew for another year unless either
party gives 90 days notice. "This will likely take


place when the transition over to Gadsden
Community Hospital takes place," said Paul Sexton,
assistant county attorney.
Management duties of the center-TMH's
duties-include but are not limited to:
*Supervise staff
*Ensure proper training of personnel
*Ensure compliance with regulatory agencies
*Ensure good customer relations
*Assure accurate and complete (billing)
information is attained
*Verify daily balances with reports
*Supervise daily deposits
"Monitor all expenses
*Report payroll
Sexton also informed commissioners that the
center would not be a money-making venture. In
fact, they can expect to lose money even after those
who use the center and can afford it pay their bills.
The first year the losses could be as high as
$615,000. However, the county manager and staff
have met with the Hospital Trust Fund Endowment
Board, which has agreed to put $615,000 from the
endowment toward to the shortfall.


FSU to produce USO show


People in Tallahassee love
the fall season! We've got
FSU football, cooler weather
and so much more. And now,
have we got an amazing
evening for you! Get ready to
see the likes of Bob Hope,
Frank Sinatra and the Rat
Pack, the Andrews Sisters,
Abbott and Costello...even
General Patton.
All of these stars (or at least
people who look and sound a
lot like them) will shine
brightly at FSU's USO Tribute
Show, a brand-new Friday
night event on football game
weekends scheduled for Nov.
10, 17 and 24 under the FSU
Flying High Circus Tent.
Offering either a dinner and
show (reserved seating) or
show-only option (general
admission), the multi-media
USO Tribute Show will show-
case the talents of FSU theatre,
music, and dance students, fac-
ulty and staff, reliving five
decades of American history
from World War II to Desert
Storm.
The show will spark memo-
ries of American icons like


Bing Crosby, Elvis Presley,
Dorothy Lamour, Les Brown
and his Band of Renown, Lana
Turner, Sammy Davis, Jr.,
Rosemary Clooney, and many
more, in a fast-paced musical
theatre memoir of the Greatest
Generation and beyond.
Pulling it all together is the
work of the executive produc-
er, FSU President T.K.
Wetherell: associate producer
Donna McHugh (assistant vice
president of university rela-
tions); and director/playwright
Mark Marple.
According to Wetherell,
"We are proud that this pro-
duction is a true University-
wide effort, drawing support
across the campus; from aca-
demics (School of Theatre,
College of Music, Film
School, Dance and more) to
the Boosters; from the FSU's
Flying High Circus to Student
Affairs; and from University
Relations to the University
Center Club."
All proceeds' will benefit
the FSU School of Theatre,
College of Music and Flying
High Circus.


According to
Wetherell,"This will be a true
USO show, since we will be
providing complimentary tick-
ets to our armed forces and
local veteran groups."
Tickets for The USO
Tribute Show are available
online at www.tickets.fsu.edu,
at the Fine Arts Ticket Office
(lobby of the Fine Arts
Building on FSU campus) or

The recent and avoidable tragic events in
Gadsden County involving our teens have led
me to openly express my continued concern
about the future of our youths and what we need
to do as a community to stop this unnecessary
loss of life.
Our young people are failing, struggling, and
dying at alarming rates and we must make
tough, immediate decisions and take immediate
action for moving forward. The tragic news of
Friday night's fatality in the East Gadsden High
School parking lot was heart-wrenching.
Shortly after the homecoming social ended,
Crystal Riley, 15, was killed and her mother,
Cynthia Riley, was hit by a stolen car driven by
a 16-year-old trying to speed away from a
deputy directing traffic. Cynthia Riley, at this
moment, is in critical condition.
This is the second fatal accident involving
Gadsden County youths since the new school
year began. We recently lost Camellia Byrd,
16, on August 19th when the car she was in,
driven by her 19-year-old cousin, crashed.
Alcohol-related charges have since been filed in
this case.
I understand that grief counselors will be at
schools this week to help students cope with
Crystal's death. While this is very necessary
step, it is a reactive response that serves as a
heavy reminder that we must immediately begin
working on more proactive, supportive
approaches to decreasing these youth tragedies.
If these tragedies have touched people in the
same way that they have affected me then every
local government and public/private body that
has an involvement in children's lives need to
stand ready to improve the life outcomes of our
kids. We must all be willing to put our political
and personal ambitions and differences aside
and work together, not just to discuss these
issues, but to create effective strategies that will
lead to sound solutions that must be implement-
ed at once! Entities that should be at the table
must include, at a minimum, the Gadsden
County School Board, the Gadsden County
Sheriff's Office, each of Gadsden County's six
municipalities and their police departments, and
every non-profit organization that plays a vital
role in our children's lives.
According to the Florida Department of
Juvenile Justice (DJJ), research suggests that
juvenile crime, including violent offenses, peaks
between 3 p.m. and 6 p.m., generally right after
school lets out. This period of the day is a con-
tributing factor to the negative outcomes for our
youths because of the number of single parent
households and the environment that this cre-
ates. It allows our unsupervised kids to engage
in negative behaviors and make poor choices.
For Gadsden County there were 365 juveniles
being processed through the juvenile justice
system (2003/2004). However, these are the
kids that we know of but how many others are
unaccounted for because they are not in any-
one's system?
The Gadsden County Board of County
Commissioners is aware of the challenges relat-
ed to keeping our kids out of trouble and com-
mitted to a long-term solution for improving the
outcomes for our kids throughout Gadsden
County rather than through a temporary fix.
Through a partnership between WORK-
FORCE plus and Tallahassee Community
College that was launched this year, the County
Commission designated $125,000 in Fiscal Year
2006 and $150,000 in Fiscal Year 2007 for the

G*STARS (Gadsden Students Training

is a long-term comprehensive prevention and

Regrettably, this program and its financial
resource are not nearly enough to positively
impact the majority of our kids. We must con-
tinue to strive for more community cohesive-
ness and join arms in tackling this situation to
make our County stronger, and this must be
done immediately!
At the Tuesday, October 17th County
Commission Meeting, I will ask the Board's
permission to entertain a dialogue with the enti-
ties noted above to begin the immediate engage-
ment and discussion geared at creating a more
focused, comprehensive, and determined effort
to change this current youth culture.
On behalf of the Gadsden County Board of
County Commissioners and the Gadsden
County 'community, our deepest condolences go
out to the Riley family and the Byrd family. We,
will continue to keep all those directly and indi-
rectly affected by these recent tragedies in our
thoughts and prayers. I submit to you that we
will work diligently through strategy, action,
and financial support to make sure that your
precious losses are not in vain. We will make
sure that their spirits continue to serve as inspi-
ration for more effective solutions to the prob-
lems facing our youth.

Robert Jackson's West Gadsden Panthers foot-
ball team is making a season out of one point dis-
trict football wins. The Panthers ran their District
I-A record to 4-0 Friday night with a 13-12 win
over Wewahitchka in a game played in the Gulf
County town.
It was the third one point district win for
West Gadsden as they had defeated Sneads and
Liberty Co. in earlier games by a single point.
All of the scoring in the Wewahitchka game
came in the first half with the home team Gators
getting on the board first mid-way the opening
quarter.
The 6-point lead didn't last long. Ron Burns
dashed 50 yards for a touchdown just a few min-
utes later and it was tied 6-6 after a quarter.
Wewahitchka went back ahead early in the
second quarter before a Chris Williams one-yard
run tied it late in the quarter. Jose Calderon then
kicked the extra point ending the scoring for the


night.
Both teams threatened in the second half.
The Panthers Ronnie Jackson had two touch-
downs called back by penalties. Wewahitchka
was moving the ball deep in Panther territory with
less than 2 minutes left. On a fourth down Gary
Brown sacked the Gator quarterback and the
Panthers ran out the clock.
Alden Bradley had a pair of sacks in the con-
test for West Gadsden and also graded out high on
the offensive line.
"It was a seesaw game in the first half."
Jackson said. ""We had a few touchdowns called
back in the second half that hurt. Defensively we
made up for that and we got another one-point
win :which I'll gladly, take." Jackson continued.
Overall the Panthers are 4-2. and will travel
to Jay Friday night looking to run their district
mark to 5-0.

The Munroe volleyball team defeated
Carrabelle in three straight (25-13, 25-19, 25-17)
last Thursday night in Carrabelle. Crystal Wade
and Jill Purvis combined for 15' kills while
Mallary Taylor and Ivie Thomas each had seven

the Panthers well both times this season and could
pull off an upset for .their third straight district
title.

1840 McLane family massacre


Topic of Historical Society meeting


Bead festival
Quite a crowd turned out Saturday for the annual Havana Bead and Jewelry Extravaganza at
The Planter's Exchange. Around 35 vendors from as far away as Savannah, GA and as nearby as
Talquin Treasures near Lake Talquin turned out to show off their wares. It didn't hurt that the
weather cooperated, either. (Photo by Leslie Roberts)

Vietnam Memorial Wall on display locally


The West Gadsden Historical Society will meet
Sunday, Oct.15, at 3 p.m. in Gardner Hall, 150 E.
llth St., Greensboro. The program will feature
the story of the McLane family massacre which
took place on April 23, 1840 about 5 miles south-
west of present day Greensboro. The guest speak-
ers will include Shorty Edwards and Kenny
Edwards, both descendants of John Kenzie
McLane.
At the age of 20, John fought off a band of
Creek Indians at his family's homestead. His step-
father had traveled to Quincy, which was the near-
est town at a distance of about 18 miles to the east,
to take care of business. While attempting to
escape from the Indians, John's mother, Nancy
Jane McLane, 40, and his sister Catherine, 13,
were shot and killed. His young half-brother and
half-sister were shot and scalped by the Indians.
John continued for most of the day to fight off the
Indians. Late in the day, his stepfather returned
and found the terrible tragedy involving his wife
and their younger children. Mrs. McLane and the
two small children were buried in a common
grave in Sycamore Cemetery.
Years later it was said by an older Creek Indian
chief that his son had been killed by a white boy
near the Telogia Creek in Florida.
It is very evident that many of the citizens of
Gadsden County as well as the surrounding coun-


ties are completely unaware of the heroism of
John Kenzie McLane on that fateful day 166 years
ago. The Society plans to make application to
have the McLane family massacre site recognized
on the National Register of Historic Places and,
upon approval, have an official marker placed
along State Road 12 near the site.
If you are a descendant of the McLane family
or know someone who is, please be present at this
meeting. We are most interested in meeting you
and gathering as much information as possible,
either written or oral history, and would like to
have copies of any pertinent photographs. In the
late 1800s, John K. McLane was interviewed by a
traveling preacher about the historical happening
in his younger days. These notes were published
in the Gadsden County Times about 60 years ago.
Mr. McLane died in 1904 at the age of 84 and was
buried in Pine Grove Church Cemetery, which is
only a couple of miles from the old family home-
stead.
The Society invites everyone to come to this
meeting and learn more about this historical event
which took place in Gadsden County so many
years ago. We look forward to seeing you at that
time. For further information, please contact
Patricia "Trish" Fletcher Vice, Program
Chairperson, at 850-442-4041 or
pvice@yahoo.com.


A three-quarter-scale replica of the Vietnam
Veterans Memorial in Washington, D.C., will be on
display at Culley's MeadowWood, 700 Timberlane
Rd., Tallahassee from Oct. 13-15.
Known as the Dignity Memorial Vietnam Wall,
this traveling replica is inscribed with the names of
more than 58,000 Americans who died or are miss-
ing in Vietnam. The Dignity Memorial network of
funeral, cremation and cemetery providers created
the memorial in 1990 as a service to those
Americans who might never travel to the nation's
capital to experience ."The Wall" firsthand.
Honoring all U.S. veterans and dedicated to
Vietnam veterans, the faux-granite replica is 240
feet long and eight feet high.


Killer bees
Continued from Page 8
reproduce as many as 16 times per year.
There have been no reports of African bee stings
in North Florida, but they are here in spots, Feiber
said.
"It's likely they will establish here," Feiber said.
"It's not going to be possible to eradicate-them.
We're trying to educate the public check the out-
side of your home to see if there are any in eaves,
old boxes or tree stumps. If you see a swarm com-
ing and going, call a pest control person to eradicate
them. They will chase animals and humans up to a
quarter of a mile if you are stung, run inside or to
a car."
Lawn work and its accompanying machinery can
sometimes aggravate a hidden hive, Feiber said, and
it's always better to be safe than sorry.
"Once they've stung, they release a pheromone
and other bees pick it up and are attracted," she said.
"The pest control companies we work- with send us
samples and we can determine whether they are
European or Africanized honey bees."


To date, the replica has been displayed in more
than 200 cities throughout the nation. Millions of
visitors have seen and touched its black, mirror-like
surface inscribed with the names of those who made
the ultimate sacrifice for flag and country.
Opening ceremonies will begin at 10 a.m. on
Oct. 13, and the exhibit will be open to the public 24
hours a day, until closing ceremonies at 4 p.m. on
Oct. 15. From the traditional playing of "Taps" each
evening, special events featuring local participants
are scheduled throughout the three-day period.
Volunteers are needed to assist in the reading of
more than 58,000 names displayed on the Wall. If
you are interested in volunteering, please contact
Jerald Collman at (850) 933-4002.

In the Panhandle, one of two honey bee samples
collected in Escambia County in 2005 turned out to
be the Africanized, honey bee. Two Africanized
honey bee samples were collected in Suwannee
County in 2004, and one in Duval. None have been
collected in Gadsden County to date.
"We've been monitoring and surveying honey
bee swarms for more than 10 years," said Jerry
Hayes, state DACS/DPI assistant chief of apiary
inspection. "The population of honey bees through-
out the southwestern U.S. with AHB genetics has
grown to where we've seen more interactions
between these bees and the public and livestock. In
Florida, AHBs are becoming well adapted because
of our climate and abundant plants, flowers and
agriculture.
"We feel that education is one of our most effec-
tive tools for dealing with a potentially more defen-
sive hybridized honey bee. We already live with
risks of insect bites from fire ants, yellow jackets
and other critters, and through public outreach pro-
grams, we can learn to adapt to a hybridized honey
bee population. Honey bees are critical to agricul-
ture through pollination of crops, and therefore must
be protected."

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.

Correction
In an article that ran in the
Sept. 21 issue of the Gadsden
County Times, the late F.P. May
was misidentified. Mr. May was
a drugstore owner in Quincy in
the 1880s and early 1900s. The
Times regrets the error.

LOSING SOMEONE YOU LOVE AND HOLD DEAR TO YOUR HEART IS
NEVER EASY. TRYING TO UNDERSTAND IS A CONSTANT STRUGGLE,
FAITH IS CHALLENGED, BELIEF IS QUESTIONED AND LETTING GO
SEEMS IMPOSSIBLE. YOU JUST FIND YOURSELF IN WHAT SEEMS TO BE
A TWILIGHT ZONE. NOT KNOWING HOW TO FEEL OR WHAT TO SAY.
YOU SEARCH FOR WORDS, PRAY FOR THE FEELING AND YOU BEG
FOR THE PEACE OF MIND.
WE NEVER THOUGHT THE DAY WOULD COME WHEN WE WOULD.
HAVE TO FACE THESE THINGS, BUT WE HAVE AND ONE DAY AT A
TIME WE TRUST IN GETTING THERE". WE SAY THERE BECAUSE
UNLIKE THE SAVIOR OF OUR LIVES, WE DON'T KNOW WERE
"THERE" IS, BUT ONE THING WE ARE CERTAIN OF IS THAT THE
LOVE, SUPPORT, COMFORT AND FELLOWSHIP THAT ALL OF YOU HAVE
SHARED WITH US THROUGH THIS, THE TOUGHEST OF TIMES IN OUR
LIVES, REASSURES US OF ONE THING, "HIS EYES ARE ON THE
SPARROW AND I KNOW HE WATCHES OVER ME THANK YOU FOR
ALL THE PRAYERS AND ALL THE LOVE BUT MOST IMPORTANTLY
THANK YOU FOR LETTING OUR GOD USE YOU TO SHOW US THAT
WEEPING MAY ENDURE FOR A NIGHT BUT JOY COMES IN THE
MORNING LIGHT!.
THANK YOU FROM EVELYN, JAMES, TONYA, CURTIS SR.,

For centuries people have devised means of transportation other than walking. In ancient Egypt camels were a means of transportation for the very wealthy. Horses and
donkeys have also been ridden for thousands of centuries IM.1re modern times brought ihe use of the horse an, ,buggy of wagon, used for many long distance journeys in
early European and American periods The bilyde was invented in Europe in the 800's and is s ill a very popular nieaan of transportation today. But the most widely
recognized way of travel-these days is none other than The Automobile
The first original automobile was nvented in 17% in France by a man named Nloilas-Joseph Cljgnol This w~s a sleamn pivowered, self propelled buggy. The notion of
this vehicle did not greatly catch the attention of the mnas'ses as at Ihis lime goverrirnents were still imprLving the Irain -qyslems. The first patent on a self propelled vehicle
was obtained in 1789 in the United States Thi 3 was 1lso a steam engine design, ife3sted by Oblver Evans The first comtiustion, 'jr gasoline powered engine, came in 1886.
It was actually invented simultaneously in three different places, by three different groups of people Carl Ben. in German,'. Gottlieb Daimler and Wilheln Maybach in
another region in Germany, and Siegfried ..larcus in Austria, all created gas powered cars in 1886 The word 'as now ready!
The next major breakthrough in the development of modern automobiles was Henry Ford's Model T The Model T vwa. known as the car that "put America on wheels".
This car was affordable for many people who in the past could only dream of buying a car The Model T was buil! on an asembl,' line rather than by one set of hands.
This made mass production of the jeoacle inexpensive. Most all Model T's were painted black This was to reduce production costs and in turn made the unit even more
affordable. In 1914 the assembly line was so efficient it only tool. 93 minutes to build an entire car! By 1920 it only cost $300 00 to purchase. That would be about $3500.00
dollars today. The Ford Company, along with EDaimler-Chrysler and many othei car manufacturers from the early 1900's. are still making new improvements to the
automotive industry today!
Since their invention, cars have necone a major part of culture worldwide. In Amenca, many decades can be defined by what typos of cars were in style. The 1930's
and 1940's are defined by the black Ford ModelA's, well known today as the 'ar of the mobster or bank robber In the 1940's aftef WWII. the Y/olkswagen beetle was
introduced out of Germany to the rest of the world, and are still popular today' The 50's are remember just as much for the Oldsmobie's at drive in movies, as they are for
the poodle skirts! The 1960's and 70's are remembered for the power of the muscle carl The 70's are also known for the more common four door economy cars. The 80's
for the sports car and the 90's for the beginning popularity of the SUV, which is sill present today And the curieril decade can be recognized with the growing popularity of
the street race cars! It is hard to imagine what the world would be like today without automobiles!

National Science
Foundation awards
$460,000 to TCC
The National Science
Foundation (NSF) has awarded a
$460,000 grant to Tallahassee
Community College that will
provide scholarships for students
pursuing careers in science,
technology, engineering and
mathematics (STEM).
The purpose of the program is
to increase the STEM workforce
by recruiting, mentoring, and
supporting academically talented
but financially needy students
through degree completion, and
partnering with employers to
facilitate placement.
"The grant will allow TCC to
provide scholarships as part of a
support system for academically
talented students, who may not
otherwise be able to pursue
educational goals toward a career
in one of the STEM areas," said
Zimmerman.
The grant award is effective
October 1 and expires September
30, 2011. TCC's proposal was
among 110 selected by NSF in an
intense competition involving
applications from several hundred
institutions. NSF grants are
regarded as among the most
prestigious awards nationally.


Year-long celebration
culminates in gala at
University Center Club

After a year-long celebration
recognizing 40 years of
excellence in teaching and
serving the community,
Tallahassee Community College
capped things off with a bang.
TCC hosted its 40th
Anniversary Gala Friday, Oct. 6,
at FSU's University Center Club.
On hand at the event was Pam
Laws, providing her stellar vocals
during the President's Reception,
and local band Crooked Shooz,
headlining the entertainment
hour.
The theme for the evening was
"GPS Global Positioning
Systems." This theme was chosen
because TCC has helped position
its students and graduates to
achieve excellence, positioned
itself as an integral part of the
community, helped position
students all over the world, and is
positioning itself for future
growth and larger opportunities.
From its inaugural year in 1966,
under the leadership of Dr. Fred
Turner, to the present, the College
has grown just as the community
has. From it humble beginnings
as Tallahassee Junior College
with an enrollment of nearly 700
students, much has been
accomplished in the school's
history. TCC now serves over
25,000 students per year and has
grown from a three-building
campus in 1967 to over 40
facilities today.
As president Bill Law said, "In
the last year, Tallahassee
Community College has marked
one of the most groundbreaking
achievements of its 40-year
history. New service centers in
Crawfordville, Quincy and
downtown Tallahassee are
bringing the dream of higher
education to more people than
ever."
TCC has provided endless
opportunities to so many people
in the community over the years.
When the school first opened its
doors, perhaps no one could have
foreseen the impact the institution
would have. Now that over
200,000 students have graced the
College's classrooms, it was time
to celebrate TCC's rich past and
bright future.
Chances are you or members of
your family have been a part of
Tallahassee Community College's
history already. There were many
stories shared at the 40th
Anniversary Gala and there are so
many stories yet to tell.
Guests at the gala were treated
to personal accounts from former
and current faculty members of
the College during a faculty
video, including TCC's longest
tenured faculty member Dr.
Elizabeth Stein, a Humanities
professor for over 32 years. In
addition, each of the past
presidents, as well as Dr. Law,
was presented with a special gift
to recognize them for their tenure.
As a show of support for the
College and all' that it has done
for Tallahassee and the
surrounding communities, several
local businesses sponsored the
event, including Wachovia,
Clemons Rutherford, &
Associates, Embarq, Tallahassee
Memorial Hospital, and
Pennington, Moore, Wilkinson,
Bell & Dunbar PA, which each
made major contributions. Over
$50,000 was raised, all of which
is eligible for match by the
Florida Legislature and will go to
TCC student scholarships.
"On behalf of myself and the
Tallahassee Community College
Alumni Association, I would like
to express a special thanks to all
of our. sponsors and those who
have supported TCC throughout
its 40 years in the community,"
said TCC outgoing Alumni
Association president Bert
Hartsfield. "The impact that this
* college has had in Leon, Gadsden
and Wakulla Counties is clear and
I am thrilled not only with the
progress that has been made
through the decades, but also with
the direction this institution is
going."

St. John students reading gala
Students in Ms. Monroe's second-grade class have concluded
that reading opens new worlds of adventure, enjoyment and imagi-
nation to all who love books. During the first week of school, the
students were engaged in a reading unit entitled "Sharing Stories."
They learned many genres of stories including humorous fiction,
fantasy, rhyming fiction and realistic fiction. A survey of the stu-
dents revealed the fantasy "Come Back Jack!" as their favorite story
of the unit.
As a culminating activity, the students continued to share their
love of books as they relaxed with pillows on mats and shared
favorite books with their classmates during a "Peer Partnering
Reading" gala. Ms. Monroe also read her favorite book, "The True
Story of the 'Three Little Pigs'" to the class. Afterwards, students
snacked on some of their favorite treats.
Mrs. Sarah Knight, the reading coach, also joined in the festivi-
ties. She believes the students are our top priority and has been very
instrumental in implementing the "Sharing Stories" reading theme.


Mrs. McMillian's
4th grade class

Among the vacations,
movies and fun cookouts, I
heard several students talking
about the books they read this
summer. That was music to my
ears. It is hard to believe that the
first two months of school is
already over. We have had a
wonderful beginning to this
school year! We are privileged
to have an intern from Florida A
& M University, Ms. Andrews is
doing a wonderful job as a stu-
dent teacher. My class mission
is to provide educational oppor-
tunities for my students to grow
socially, academically, emotion-
ally, and physically that meet
the needs of individual learners.
We do this through our com-
mitment to quality instructions
while encouraging student, par-
ent, and community involve-
ment. Together we develop life
long learners who are produc-
tive and responsible citizens of
and ever changing society.
Our main focus is FCAT
Reading/Writing. Students are
focusing on creating the perfect
paragraph by connecting the
writing process with the good
writing traits, voice, ideas and
content, word choice, presenta-
tion, organization and sentence
fluency. The students are striv-
ing for 4.0 or higher. We are uti-
lizing multimedia technology in
the classroom. This includes
computers and hands on materi-
als. In science we are studying
properties of matter. Character
counts at St. John Elementary.
In social studies we are focusing
on the Six Pillars of character.
Our students are provided with
many opportunities to learn and
practice the character traits of
responsibility, caring, respect,
fairness, citizenship and trust-
worthiness.
