Commission

hears plea

for hospital
by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
Recently, Frances Harrell said, a student at her
school was playing football and was injured.
The student's parent arrived on the campus in
five minutes and asked her to call 911. After a
20-minute wait a fire truck arrived and Harrell
was told that all of the emergency medical
technicians were in Tallahassee. "I'm here on a
very serious concern. We need a hospital. The


hospital shouldn't
have gotten to the
point to have been
shut down,"
Harrell told the
Board of County
Commissioners
Tuesday night
during the regular
meeting.
Harrell listed a
chronology of the
dates and events
surrounding the
hospital troubles
dating back to
2001. On several
occasions Harrell
quoted from
articles appearing
in the Gadsden
County Times.

first to stress that no commissioner is happy the
hospital was closed. I wouldn't be so
presumptuous to believe in the Gadsden County
Times. Some of the dates were what the editor
thought, not what was said," stated Commission
Chariman Ed Dixon.
Following the meeting Marlon Brown, county
manager, could not recall an incorrect date
printed in the newspaper as related to dates
made public about the facility. Nor, he
admitted, has he or his staff called or written the
newspaper or the editor to make a correction in
any dates published about the hospital.
Harrell said the county needs more than a
clinic, it needs a hospital. Dixon explained that
the Urgent Care Center is a stop-gap measure
because all of the county's ambulances must go
out of the county (to get emergency patients)

3 held in apartment shooting


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor .
Shots fired at Flint Garden
Apartments in Chattahoochee midday
Monday led to the apprehension and
arrest of three men after a chase for
several miles.
The pursuit involved the
Chattahoochee Police Department
(CPD), the Gadsden County Sheriff's
Department,, the Florida Highway
Patrol and their aviation unit, Florida
Fish & Wildlife K-9 officer, Gretna
Police Department, and Greensboro
Police Department.
Arrested were: Trenton Wilson, 26,
on several outstanding warrants which
included failure to appear, no valid
driver license, failure to appear for


arraignment while on bond, possession
of controlled substance, trafficking in
cocaine, domestic battery, aggravated
assault, two counts criminal mischief,
throwing or shooting a deadly missile,


assault, battery, and petit theft;
Latterance Parks, 26, violation of
probation for sale of cocaine and
aggravated battery with a deadly
weapon; and Bryant Williams, 23,
fleeing and eluding.
Two others are still at large, but have
been identified. Authorities, however,
are not releasing their names.
The trouble all began about 12:30
p.m. when the CPD responded to a call
from the apartment management that
shots were being fired. Stephanie
Jackson, executive business manager
for the complex, said she called the
Chattahoochee Police Department
after tenants reported several men,
(none were residents of the complex)
firing shots at each other in the


parking lot.
According to a report released by the
CPD, several men came to the
complex in a 1992 gold Lexus to pick
up an acquaintance who was visiting
his girlfriend. The men in the Lexus
were -standing at the rear of the
vehicle, when a 2002 Kia pulled into
the parking lot and parked near the
Lexus.
Jackson said the parties in both
vehicles exchanged words before
gunfire erupted. "A lot of shots were
fired in the parking lot. But there was
no drive-by shooting of any apartment
in this community. Our tenants were
not involved," she said.
Before CPD could arrive, the Lexus

SSo many
pumpkins,

T1 so little tim e...

Eyes as big as pumpkins was little
exaggeration in Havana Saturday, as
this young visitor proves. The annual
Pumpkin Festival saw the biggest
turnout in its seven-year history,
festival coordinator Jim Kellum said.
He estimated more than 4,000 people
turned out for the event, which
featured a dog Halloween costume
competition as well as a human
Halloween costume competition, And
around 2,500 pumpkins all hand-
painted by kids visiting the festival -
were sold. Three-fourths of the
proceeds from pumpkin sales go to the
Native Americans in New Mexico and
Arizona who. grew them, he said.
Kellum said the festival committee also
gives a sizeable donation to Big Bend
Hospice with the rest of the proceeds
going to advertising for the Havana
Merchants' Association. (Photo by Ron

Quincy

man dies


in 1-car

accident
by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
A 49-year-old Quincy man,
Timothy Trueblood, died in a one-
car accident Saturday morning
about 7:50 on Spooner Road, just
south of Quincy.
According to a report released by
the Florida Highway Patrol,
Trueblood's 2003 Dodge UT was
traveling eastbound on Spooner
Road. For unknown reasons, upon
entering a curve, the car left the
roadway on the grassy portion of
the north shoulder.
The vehicle then traveled
approximately 222 feet in a
northeasterly direction before
hitting a tree. The vehicle came at
a stop when it struck the tree.
Trueblood, who was alone in the
vehicle, was wearing a seatbelt.
The investigation is continuing.

Preventing fires
The Quincy Fire Department held its annual Fire Prevention
Week Open House last Friday afternoon. Among the more than
100 people attending were 11-year-old Bethany Hall and 5-year-
old Braxton Palmer. Part of the Open House allowed children to
climb inside the fire truck for a look at all of the gadgets. The
theme this year was "Prevent Cooking Fires, Watch What You
,Heat" because home cooking fires have been on the increase for
the past decade. In addition to watching what they heat, Quincy
residents are urged to install smoke alarms on every level of
their homes and keep them working by monthly testing and
quarterly battery replacement. Fire Prevention Week, which
began 84 years ago, is the time when fire departments around
the nation reach out to the community to teach citizens of all
ages the importance of fire prevention. Those attending the open
house were treated to popcorn, hot dogs, hamburgers, and soft
drinks. The American Red Cross was on hand with its "mobile
fire house" to teach children the correct way to exit a burning
building.

Massey Drugs delivers!

Mrs. Nora Larson says the folks at Massey Drugs are the
"most kind, most caring" people that insist on helping
everyone in any way they can.
But what she appreciates as much as the kindness and
helpfulness is Miss Jewel's appearance at her door. You see,
Mrs. Larson isn't able to drive anymore and she counts on
Miss Jewel's deliveries to get her prescriptions filled. Miss
Jewel may not look to you like a very likely Santa Claus,
but to Mrs. Larson she sure does!


7 7,


More of that good, old fashioned service you just don't get
much of any more.
Mrs. Larson has depended on Massey Drugs almost since
she and Mr. Larson moved to Quincy from Palatka in
1949. However, it's been in the later years since she's not
been able to drive that Massey's delivery service has come
to mean so much.

Osteoporosis treatment gets


boost at Havana med center


by LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor

Havana's new Dexascan got a hearty welcome
to town Monday.
Used for early detection of osteoporosis, the
Dexascan (Dual Energy X-ray absorptiometry)
will allow area residents the convenience of hav-
ing a bone mineral density assessment in Gadsden
County rather than having to commute to
Tallahassee.
The machine is being housed at Havana
Medical Center at 602 East 5th Ave. and its arrival
was made possible through a $45,500 grant from
the United States Department of Agriculture's
Rural Development division.
Havana Mayor T.J. Davis lauded the grant
made to the town during a check presentation cer-
emony Monday morning. The town will in turn
lease the equipment to Dr. Mark Newberry.
"Today marks a milestone for the citizens of
Havana," Davis said. "... we're very fortunate to
have a physician with the credentials of Dr.
Newberry in Havana."
Davis said former Town Manager Susan
Frieden, who recently left her post to pursue other
opportunities, was instrumental in garnering the
grant for the machine. The Town of Havana
kicked in $7,250 toward the purchase of the
machine.
Dr. Newberry, the town's only physician; said-
the Dexascan is a necessary tool to help improve
the health of area reside.t.andti.ht tlte. .gtit came
not a moment too soon.
"Attaining the Dexascan allows us to screen for
i osteoporosis. Many of our residents in Havana
have a hard time getting to Tallahassee.
Osteoporosis is highly prevalent and is associated
with high morbidity," Newberry said. "...
Medicare recently announced it is cutting the


reimbursement rate for the Dexascan by 71 per-
cent. When that happens ... small companies
across the country won't be able to afford the
Dexascan. We feel very fortunate to have received
'this grant."
The Dexascan is used to diagnose osteoporosis
in men and women, particularly those with the fol-
lowing risk factors: I'cni.ale. Caucasian, 50 or
older, history of bone fracture, a small, thin frame,
a family history of osteoporosis, ovaries removed,
early menopause, a low-calcium' diet, lack of exer-
cise, eating disorders, intake of certain medicines,
including steroids or anticonvulsants and use of
alcohol and tobacco.
During the scan, the patient lies on the scan
table without moving while a scanner passes over
one area of his or her skeleton, either the lower
spine, wrist, or hip: A dual energy beam of low
dose x-rays passes through that area and is meas-
ured. The scan is repeated for a second skeletal
area. Dexa technology works by measuring the
amount of x-rays that are absorbed by bones that
are scanned. Using two x-ray energies enables the
machine, to differentiate between bone and soft tis-
sue and give an accurate estimation of bone densi-
ty.
"Accessibiity to quality healthcare is an essen-
tial need of all people," said Chuck Clemons,
USDA Rural Development state director. "Rural
development is pleased to partner with the Town
-of Havana in improving the delivery of health care
services locally to the residents of this area."

Planning board turns down


request for higher density on farm


by LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor

Brian Chapman and Phyllis
Donofrio had hoped to be able
to build at least one more house
on the property they own on
Shade Farm Road in the St.
Johns, community.
But following the advice of
the county's senior planner, Jill
Jeglie, the Gadsden County
Planning and Zoning
Commission voted unanimously
Thursday to deny the couple's
request for their property to be
designated as agriculture-1 to
S agriculture-3. This would have
allowed them to put 10 houses
on the 52-acre parcel.
"That's not right," Chapman
said after the vote. "That's
ridiculous."
i The 52 acres in question con-


sist -of two adjacent parcels.
Chapman and Donofrio own a
27-acre parcel; next to them is a
25-acre parcel owned by
Monica Cantrall, who joined
with the couple to request a
higher density for the two prop-
erties.
Jeglie told commissioners
she had concerns a. land-use
change like the one the three
requested would constitute
urban sprawl and might conflict
with several of the county's land
use policies.
Future land use element poli-
cy 1.10.1 calls on the county to
discourage urban sprawl by
keeping higher density land use
in urban service areas, existing
established rural residential
areas and commercial nodes that
are more accessible to public
facilities.


"This parcel is not in the
existing rural residential land
use category but is adjacent to
the rural residential property to
the east," Jeglie said. "The
Florida Department of
Community Affairs has objected
to other land use changes that
would increase density because
the new density is not being
placed in existing established
rural residential areas."
Jeglie described the proposed
land use change as "leap-frog-
ging" jumping in designation
from ag-3 to ag-1 to ag-3 again
- and said she was concerned
about the precedent that might
set.
But Commissioner Larry
Gainous said he disagreed, and
would have liked to have known
there was a shift in policy corn-

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

Contemplation



Pray, sure, but educate too


Each time there is a senseless tragedy,
like the one last week when the
teenager was killed, people in the
community want to know that can be
done and how to stop it from happening
again. Invariably, someone wants a
prayer vigil. The same holds true with
the most recent that claimed the life of a
teenager.
Last week, a very sincere young man
came into my office and said that the
Lord had laid it on his heart to gather
people together for a prayer vigil
around the Courthouse Square. They
would hold hands, he said, and pray.
They would pray for the family of the
teenager and mourn her death, he said.
His plan for the vigil had not come
together, but he knew he wanted to do
something to bring attention to the
community's recent loss of a young
girl.
Crystal Riley was the 16-year-old
teenager who, last week, was killed in
the parking lot at East Gadsden High
School after leaving the homecoming
dance. Her mother, Cynthia Riley, was
injured and is recuperating. Another
teenager, Demetrius Kirkland has been
charged with the crime.
So, when he asked me what I thought
of the prayer vigil, I said it was a fine
idea. But, I added, while the people he
wants to bring together were offering
prayers, they ought to think about ways
of educating kids about driving safety,
drinking and driving, getting into cars
with people who are irrational, hopping


into cars that may be stolen, and more.
Everyone prays, but prayers cannot
help Crystal now. However, positive
action and information may help the
next teenager. I advised the young man
to get with Sheriff Morris Young and
the Florida Highway Patrol to bring the
crash dummies to town, the drunk-
driving simulator, and a few wrecked
cars to show kids what can happen as a
result of speeding and careless driving.
The funny thing about being young is
that they actually don't believe anything
bad can happen to them. For most of
them nothing tragic will happen. But,
sadly, some will be touched by tragedy
involving a vehicle.
Without even thinking very long, I can
come up with six teens in Gadsden
County who in the past two years have
died as the result of traffic accidents.
Many more have been injured. What we
need to do is educate our children on
the fact that motor vehicles are not toys.
If not handled properly they, like guns,
can kill.
I have heard Florida Highway Patrol
officers say that one of the most
difficult parts of their job is to go to the
home of a teenager and tell the parents
that their child has been killed in an
automobile accident.
Funeral services for Crystal are
planned for Saturday at 11 a.m. at
Beulah Hill Missionary Baptist Church
in Gretna. While we pray for the Riley
family we should also look to protect
other teens through education.


Strunker down

with

1Kes
When we hunker down to talk, we're all on the same level.
by Kesley Colbert, just a good ole boy that likes to write.


Violet was out cold. Buddy

gave her a 7,5 for the flip!


ESPN recently ran a show on boxing's 25
greatest knockouts. I'm not much of a
boxing fan. But it was amazing to see the
old black and white clips of Joe Louis
overwhelming Max Schmeling at Yankee
Stadium in 1938. By the time the show got
around to Buster Douglas and Mike Tyson
my mind had drifted back to Violet
Cunningham.
She took the first knockout blow that I
actually witnessed. It was back in the
fourth grade. We were about half way
through the Thanksgiving play when Violet
somehow got tangled up in her turkey
costume and tumbled backwards off the
stage and plunged head first into the front
row. She was unconscious before the first
of the feathers settled over the crowd.
When Mr. Alexander laid her back up on
the stage I thought she was dead for sure.
She wasn't moving a muscle and when
Mrs. Dinwiddle finally got her beak off,
Violet was white as a ghost and her eyes
had rolled back in her head.
It kinda put a damper on the play. Plus, it
was quite difficult for the Indians and
Pilgrims to bond with the turkey they were
supposed to share passed out on the couch
in Mr. McIver's office. 'Course, none of
the parents down in the first row dared to
take a nap for the rest of the performance.
Buddy told us at the post show party he
gave Violet a 7.5 on the "dive". He said it
could have been higher but he had to take
off because she over rotated and her ankles
separated on contact.
We were all surprised the next day when
Violet showed up for school. We figured
she'd be laid up for a week or so. Me and
Yogi welcomed her back by sticking two
fingers in front of her and saying, "How
many Violet? How many do you see?"
We assumed you weren't ever going to be
"right" once you'd been knocked out.
I was only a limb away when Rocky
Stoker fell out of the big walnut tree down
by Archie Moore's pond. He was pretty
much still o. k. when he hit the first branch
with his legs, but when his legs came to a
sudden stop it catapulted his head
downward full flush into the limb below. I
think he was unconscious by the time he
twisted around the bottom fork and
plopped to the ground.


We liken'd to have never got him to
come to. We were too scared to run and get
help....and it was way too far to drag him
up to the road. Leon grabbed some pond.
water and splashed it in Rocky's face. I
think Leon felt a little guilty. He'd been
throwing green walnuts at us when Rocky
slipped.
I leaned over and blew in his face. Yogi
was rubbing his arms. Rocky had that same
ashen look that Violet displayed back in
the fourth grade play. He was out for about
five minutes and he just opened his eyes
and said, "What happened?"
Buddy gave him a 2. He told Rock there
was just "no attempt at any form
whatsoever" on the way down.
Bob Cassidy hit Travis Winchester so
hard one day at football practice it split
Travis's helmet.....and knocked him out
cold! It was just a simple tacking drill but
there wasn't much back up in Bob Cassidy.
Coach Scott had Travis moved over to the
side, turned to me and said, "Let's go
Colbert, you're next. Step up here and
show Bob what you are made of."
I had that ashen look and my eyes rolled
back in my head BEFORE Bob hit me! My
helmet held together and I didn't lose
consciousness. I did, however, see stars
and I was dizzy for a week. And I was a
mite disappointed. Everybody was making
over, and worried about, Travis. And I
didn't even get a helping hand off the
ground. He goes to go to the locker room to
"get checked out". I ran wind sprints! And
the worst insult was Buddy gave Travis an
8.5 for his "standing back flip" and said he
couldn't score me because I ducked before
Bob hit me.
It was the top of the fourth inning of a
high school baseball game in Murray,
Kentucky when "I got mine". I was a
senior and figuring that if I could get on
base I might get a rally started&the pitch hit
me on the left temple, just below my
batting helmet. I don't remember falling
down. I couldn't see if I was ashen. I don't
know where my eyes were. I remember the
pitcher's arm coming down....and the next
thing I see is Coach Russell standing over
me, looking very concerned. I was trying to
get up and they are checking my eyes,

them succeed: Educational preparation,
functional life skills and work
experience. You can read more about
Quincy's first About Face! graduating
class elsewhere in this issue; in this
space, I'm going to steal a 13-point
plan of action written by Fred Triplett,
senior training manager for the state's
About Face! program.
They're written for kids who
participate in the program, but I think
they are valuable points for people of
all ages.
1) It's all about networking and
relationships; you have to be
everywhere you need to be.
2) Patience, passion and perseverance
lead to success along with discipline,
determination and time management
skills.
3) The best way to predict the future
is to create it. The future belongs to
those who believe in the beauty of their
dreams. Don't be afraid to dream, and
don't be afraid to follow your dreams
... but you must always be prepared,
seize opportunities and perform in
order to achieve your dreams.

4) Learn from your challenges; as
difficult or painful as they can be, ask
what purpose those challenges have in
your life and how you can live life
better as a result.
5) Treat everyone with respect,
irrespective of title or socio-economic
status. Everyone has something to
offer you.
6) Don't expect that. it is other
people's responsibility to make you
happy; you have to make, yourself
happy.
7) Don't allow your career or your
possessions to define who you are.
8) Don't try to impress others with
titles, degrees, or financial worth;
impress with your actions, your words
and your heart.
9) Learn from people even those
whom you don't like.
10) Technical expertise alone will not
ensure success; working with other
people and not against them will lead
to success.
11) Take full responsibility for your
actions and for the direction of your
professional and personal life.
12) Be passionate about what you
believe in without fear of ridicule. Too
often the fear of failure prevents many
of us from making a serious attempt.
13) The same holds true for the fear
of love. One should not be afraid to
love and to love unconditionally.


'L letters

editor



Even Barney had a gun

Dear Editor,
This letter is in reference to the article I recently
read about our Sheriff Young's recent request to the
County Commission for $3 million dollars to better
run his department. (Which if course was rejected) I
could hardly believe that our deputies had to buy
their own guns. I gotta tell ya, I was reminded of The
Andy Griffin Show as compared to the G.C.S.O.
Ya'll remember Barney the deputy, well he had a
gun, but only one bullet. Sheriff Young said he
furnishes the bullets, but couldn't furnish the gun.
Come on Commissioners aren't you a little
ashamed? Could you give the Sheriffs his request so
he can better serve and protect. I, for one would hate
to call the G.C.S.O. and have a real for a deputy, and
* he show up with a pocket full of bullets (no gun)
"Just Kidding"
Now a kind word to Sheriff Young, Keep God
forever before you and when you need help,
acknowledge God first and then go talk to the
Commissioners, in other words, ask God first for
what you want or need, then believe and trust in him
to honor your request. I still remember and trust in
him to honor your request. I still remember watching
Sheriff Young on T.V. after winning the election,
and right away I saw Jesus in this young man's life,
and his wife's.
The Lord took Morris Young right to the top; he
took (as he's known to do) the least expected
candidate and made history with him. So Sheriff, I
know myself sir, of what I've witnessed of God
being in your life. I know he'll deal with our County
Commissioners. And don't be surprised if the next
time you make a request they'll exceed the amount
requested. The Lord is known to give us positions,
and assignments and make it difficult; but be
faithful, Sheriff Young, and know God is watching
out and over you and your department, even I have
seen him working with you, and in you.
Our father who art in heaven can deal with
Commissioners, Presidents, etc. After all He is the
King of Kings.
Be faithful
Simon Howard

We need to pray
I am a long life resident of Gadsden County.
Quincy has been my home from birth to about 6
years ago. While Quincy is so small, by now you
must know, everybody knows everybody. I'm sure
we all must be on the same page when I say prayer

The devil has a purpose. When he stands in front of
God and is asked what have you been doing...His

We really need to PRAY.

Cute and

cuddly...

but with a

message

Some of you may remember
Wendy Beck. She worked for
The Gadsden County Times a
short period of time in
advertising.
Wendy moved on, first to
The Sanford (FL) Herald and
now to a suburban newspaper
in Phoenix. Sights and sounds
are different in the desert than
in Florida, I guess. She
particularly liked the
howl of the
coyotes at nighi I,-
had to tell her ri. ^ ,3
own (very trute I '
coyote story. It A.:.
goes like this...

I had taken
my boys out west on a
camping trip...Grand Canyon,
etc. We also went to Canyon
deChelle (excellent trip, by the
way)' and spent one night there.
We got in after dark, set up our
tents (the boys had to each
have their own, of course, so
there were 3 tents to set up),
then had to move them because
a ranger pointed out we were
set up in an RV only section (it
was DARK and I didn't see the
sign). So we were bushed
when we turned in.
I fell asleep listening to
coyotes off in the not-so-
distance. It was nice. Then in
the wee hours of the morning a
coyote bumps against my tent
and laid down under the fly
smack up against the tent wall
about a foot from my head.
There was just barely enough
light to make out his form and
to tell what it was.
I was scared to death one of
the boys would get up to go to
the bathroom or something. I
laid awake the entire rest of the
night listening for their tent
zippers to open. The coyote
never moved.
Then about daybreak Jason's
tent unzips. I jumped up and
opened mine and that fuzzy,
cute Benji-looking dog
yawned, stretched and trotted
right past Jason to have a look
around inside his tent.
I'd been guarding the boys
against "Benji" all night.

I felt a little foolish, but there
was no harm done except for
missing a few hours sleep.
Besides, breakfast cooked over
an open fire in a cast iron
skillet and shared with the boys
and Benji made up for it.

Retelling that story to Wendy
did, however, bring to mind
some "current events" topics
back here in Gadsden County.
I wonder how much effort and
money we're putting into
protecting ourselves from
"coyotes" that are nothing
more than "Benjis"?
A lot of tax money goes into
programs that are supposed to
keep some kind or another of
"coyote" from our doorstep.
We are quick to yell "coyote",
take whatever money is passed
our way and spend it until it's


gone. All too often we don't
look closely enough to see if it
is a "coyote" or a "Benji". We
just spend the money.

First Gadsden 'About Face' class


graduates; student praises program


by Leslie Roberts
Times News Editor

Operation About Face
marked a milestone at the
Alexander 0. Shelfer Jr.
National Guard Armory in
Quincy last Wednesday night.
At just after 6 p.m., 32 grad-
uates of the first year-round
About Face program in Gadsden
County marched in a procession
to seats at the front of the room,
faces beaming.
The Quincy armory is one of
eight sites in the state that hosts
a year-round About Face pro-
gram aimed at 13- to 17-year-
olds. Its aim is to teach students
the three major objectives nec-
essary for success in real life:
educational preparation, func-
tional life skills and work expe-
rience skills. Participants are
paid $10 per day, or $160 per
eight-week session, for attend-
ing and participating in the pro-
gram, which offers a
Monday/Wednesday class from
4:30-7:30 p.m. and a
Tuesday/Thursday class from
4:30-7:30 p.m.
"This program has influ-
enced and educated me more
than any other," said Asya
Robinson, a 15-year-old honor
roll student at East Gadsden
High School. "It has raised my
maturity level and allowed me
to meet my ideals."
State Rep. Curtis Richardson,
D-Tallahassee, played a key role
in securing funding for the pro-
gram during the last Legislative
session.
He congratulated participants
Wednesday, and told them their
future success lies largely on the
foundation they prepare now.
"When I was a kid, we had
dirt roads. I was one in a family
of eight kids we often slept two
and eight to a bed. Slavery was
not that long ago my grand-
mother's parents were slaves. To
have a better chance in life, you
have to get a good public educa-
tion and a good foundation," he
said. "That early educational
foundation and a lot of hard
work got me where I am today.
It's a position of extreme power
... when I was 13 or 14 or 15, no
one could ever have convinced
me that a little boy from rural
Northeast Florida would find

Roberson thanks site manager

himself in that position. "If you
get an education and you work
hard, the sky is the limit.
America is one of the few coun-
tries where if you have an idea,
you can make as much money as
you want. Don't let anybody tell
you that because you live in a
rural county, you aren't special,
because you've had D and F
schools, you aren't special,
because you are."
Richardson said the mission
of the program, sponsored by
the, State,. of ,loiiid.i. the
Department of Children and
Families: and ItAe Florida


National Guard, is to work with
youths "who in some ways
might be headed in the wrong
direction, in some instances,
might have no direction."
Lia Wingate, who serves as
site manager, said the 32 gradu-
ates had put a lot of effort into
the program, which teaches life
skills, critical thinking, how to
work effectively in groups and
business perspectives.
"These young ladies and men
worked very, very hard," she
said.
Graduates received medal-
lions and diplomas, and were
served hors d'oeuvres after the
event.
The next About Face session
begins Oct. 23.
Candidates must be 13-17
and receive benefits through
Department of Children and
Families to get paid.
For more information on the
Operation About Face program,

The complaints from people
in the Lake Talquin area about
their neighbors living in recre-
ational vehicles or RVs for
extended periods and dumping
raw sewage that is so foul the
stench assaults the nostrils got
some attention last week.
In addition to the sewage,
county officials from the health
department and the Planning
and Growth Department also
found violations that included
exposed sewer lines, extension
cords and open pit septic tanks.
The problem was brought to
the attention of the Board of
County Commissioners a few
months ago when citizens com-
plained that people were violat-
ing a county ordinance by living
in recreational vehicles in a rural
residential area, which is not
permitted according to the coun-
ty's code. Growth Management
director Bill McCord informed
the commission that "the coun-
ty's code does not allow for per-
manent residency in RVs" when


the issue was discussed.
But after persistent com-
plaints, the Board of County
Commissioners asked McCord
to join with the environmental
health officer and investigate the
complaints. At one site they
found exposed electrical wires
that ran across driveways and
water lines that ran across sewer
lines. They also found sewer
connections held together with
duct tape, sewage coming out of
clean-out plugs, and raw sewage
running on the ground as well as
broken sewage lines exposing
raw sewage.
At one site, 10 RVs were
using the same septic tank.
These infractions were all with-
in a few yards of Lake Talquin.
Those responsible for the infrac-
tions were issued citations and
given 30 days to respond.
For several months,
McCord's department has been
grappling with the problem of
non-conforming RV parks
throughout the county. In some
cases, RVs are parking where
there are no parks, and there is
friction between those who


sewage
think they can park their recre-
ational vehicles and those who
don't want them there.
"Don't use my name, I'm in
enough trouble with those peo-
ple already," said one man, who
asked not to be identified. He
was happy, however, that the
citiations were issued and is
willing to wait and see what
changes will be made.
There are codes that address
RVs and where they are allowed
to park. The code allows RV
owners to park their vehicles in
designated commercials areas,
but others are off-limits. Some
residents want commissioners to
defined exactly how long an
individual can live in a RV.
"If we say they can stay six
months, then what prevents
them from moving it for one
day and coming back for anoth-
er six months?" was the concern
of one woman.
The Board of County
Commissioners will address the
issue again. In the meantime, if
RV owners continue to violate
health and safety codes, the cita-
tions will continue to be issued.


Argument ends in stabbing

Times Editor


A 21-year-old Quincy man, Ronterrious Turner,
was stabbed Tuesday night in the chest after wit-
nesses said they saw him arguing with 24-year-old
Keith Butler.
According to a report released by the Quincy
Police Department, officers were called to the Shell
Timesaver on East Jefferson Street in reference to a
man bleeding. When officers arrived they found
Turner lying on the ground bleeding heavily from a
stab wound in the chest. He told authorities that

"When they (officers) arrived they made contact

Butler was charged with one count of aggravated

Labeled a

troublemaker

When someone stands up for
what they believe in. other people
label them as troublemakers. This
is what happened to me. I went to
the Recreation Department and
said since we are getting a big
grant (700,000 plus) maybe we
can have a better lighting at the
Bobby Nealy Complex. I was
told that all that was going to be
allotted out there was $3,000.
They said that the city manager
and some of the city
commissioners said that the
adults could fend (pay) for
themselves.
I told them that .the adults are
taxpayers and we can't get
funding for recreation, not taking
away from the kids but we get
enough monies for everybody to
enjoy. When the adults .go to state
or national we are representing
our city too, but we are on our
own. Basketball, softball, and
football are the biggest sport
around here for the adults. But
you put more money in the golf
and soccer program for adults.
I remember this same person
telling me to talk, speak up they
were egging me on. That was
when someone else had the
position. Now that I'm still
speaking up and you are in the
seat I am a troublemaker, so be
it!!
They said Jesus Christ was a
troublemaker just because he was
the Son of God. They called Dr.
Martin Luther King a
troublemaker; they also called
Rosa Parks a troublemaker
because she wouldn't move out
of her seat. So who am I? Just
because people stand up for what
they believe in they are labeled as
troublemakers.
One more thing, the reason why
I haven't said anything about my
utility bill is because I haven't
received it yet. I had an audit
done that I didn't request, I didn't
request it because I knew they
were going to come up with all
these bogus excuses as to why
my bill was so high. We will see;

"You couldn't say it was
leap-frogging when on two sides
it's contiguous to rural residen-
tial," he said. "DCA has found
we have scattered rural residen-
tial throughout the county."
"We have rural residential
that's isolated, but that doesn't
make it right," Jeglie said.
"This seems to be a major
shift in direction.- not that I dis-
agree with what you're saying ...
it's just a surprise to me to hear
this in a meeting. It's new."
Elva Peppers, senior ecolo-
gist with Florida Environmental
and Land Services, Inc., repre-
sented the three property owners
during Thursday night's public
hearing. She told commissioners
she was perplexed about the
senior planner's recommenda-
tion.
"I was quite surprised at the
recommendation for denial ... I
talked to Jill, and understand her
position," Peppers said. "That
25 acres has right now seven
homes on it, so it's already non-
conforming, and you already
have a higher density."
The DCA recently ordered
the county to put a halt on six
developments in progress, say-
ing they constituted urban
sprawl. There is some ambiguity
in county offices about what
local officials consider urban
sprawl to be and what DCA
does.
"I kind of feel like we've
been put over a barrel because
we've been approving every-
thing whole hog on pieces that
look a whole lot worse than
this," Gainous said.
Commissioners opted to vote
against the request rather than
send it on to the County
Commission and to DCA for
approval.
"I just don't understand why,
if I'm trying to fix a problem
that exists, you won't do it,"
Chapman said. "I'm really dis-


Honorable Edward J. Dixon, Chair
Board of County Commissioners, District 5

county is run. That amazes me -

won't' that amazes me. I'm

score! It has to be the most
inconsequential knockout in
history....
And I wondered on the long bus
ride home if I'd ever be "right"


again.
In college I saw Eugene
Callahan fall out of a second
story window. He was very
conscious, and screaming, until
he hit the ground. He was out for
twenty minutes. I was hanging
around the county line store at the
foot of Powder Mill Hill when
the little fellow from Frankewing
hit that guy from Lawrenceburg
so hard I HEARD his eyes roll
back in his head.
I wondered how Buddy would
have "scored" those KO's. I
phoned him up. "Naw, Kes,
you've got to see'em to call'em."
"Have you ever given a
knockout a 10?"
"Only one....and that was back
in 1965 when Mary Hadley
Hayden walked into our
graduation dance in that blue
dress!"
Respectfully,
Kes

isters, or at least someone who will
represent them.
A round table meeting and dinner
has been planned for Monday, Oct. 30,
iat 6 p.m. at the Gadsden County
'Sheriff's Office on East Jefferson
'Street. At the meeting. they will be
asked to help craft the count "s disaster

Register your Cancer

Society Relay team now
: The American Cancer Society Relay For
Life in Quincy is just around the corner.
Register your team today by calling the
American Cancer Society at 297-0588, ext.
127. This "celebration of life" is one of two
events that brings the Gadsden County commu-
nity together in a unified effort to fight cancer.
: Former and current cancer patients, their
families, businesses, civic organizations and the
public are invited to take part in this exciting
ieam event. Relay For Life takes place on
Friday, April 20, through the night and ends on
Saturday, April 21.
Relay For Life is a _
family-oriented event
Where participants enjoy \
the camaraderie of a
team and also raise
funds 'to support the
activities of the
tkmerican Cancer
society Participants camp out at the Relay site,
nd when they are not taking their turn walking,
hey take part in fun activities and enjoy local
entertainment. Teams from companies, church-
es, organizations, hospitals and schools collect
Donations to fight cancer.
4 This year, teams who register with a $100
commitment fee will receive a special-edition
Relay For Life tote bag.
"Relay For Life brings the progress against
cancer to the forefront," said Rosa Robinson,
vent chair. "Many participants are our family,
friends, and neighbors who have dealt with can-
der themselves. Their involvement is proof of
the progress that has been not only reducing
dleath rates, but also in the quality of life follow-
Ing cancer treatment.
"The funds raised enable us to continue our
investment in the fight against cancer through
research, education, advocacy, and patient serv-
ices," said Robinson. "Thanks to the generosity
6f corporate sponsors like Wal-Mart and the
City of Quincy, the money raised by partici-
pants goes directly to the American Cancer
Society's lifesaving programs."
Information about how to form a team or
become involved in Relay For Life is available
from the American Cancer Society at 850-297-
0588, ext. 127 or on the web at www.acsev-
ents.org/relay/fl/quincy.

plan.
The plan will serve as a road map
should the county be hit by a natural or
man made disaster. "We are encourag-
ing suggestions from. our local faith,
leaders on how to best design and
implement a plan that would maximize
the safety of all citizens. We know that
we cannot stop nature from taking its
course nor can we stop accidents from
occurring, but planning ahead will pre-
paie us to handle whatever comes our


way," said Young.
Any minister who plans to attend
the meeting is asked to call Minister
Jimmy Hughes, coordinator of emer-
gency, management for the GCSO, at
850-627-9233.
Young said the meeting is another
way he hopes to keep citizens informed
about what they can do to help them-
selves and their neighbors when a dis-
aster strikes. "It's not enough that we
know as a fell others know \~hat to do


in case of a disaster, it is important that
as many people as possible know how
to react and w'hat to do," Young said,
While Gadsden County may not be
in "hurricane alle)" Young said citi-
zens cannot rely on the fact that we
may not be hit by another major storm
for several sears. The last hurricane to
hit Gadsden County occuned Nov. 23,
1985. With sustained winds of 46 miles
per hour and classified as a tropical
storm. many residents suffered major


damage, some roads were not passable,
and some residents were without
power for more than a week.
And, young said, with Interstate 10
and the many railroad tracks that crisis
cross the county, transporting haz-
ardous waste, a spill could cause a sig-
nificant disruption to citizens' lives.
"This meeting is very important and
we feel that ministers can help us form
a disaster plan that is good for the
entire count.," Young said.

Senior Services really rocking'


with fundraising efforts


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

If you live long enough, you
are certain to be classified as a
"senior citizen". The Gadsden
County Senior Services, Inc. has
embarked on an ambitious
fundraising campaign to raise
money to maintain services and
increase the programs offered at
the center and in the community.
Hundreds of letters have
already been sent to individuals,
organizations, churches, and
businesses soliciting contribu-
tions. The campaign began Sept.
8 and will end Nov. 10. "The
hope is to raise a minimum of
$25,000 this year. We're also
asking for commitments for
future giving so that the pro-
grams we start can be sus-
tained," said Inez Holt, the
fundraising co-chairperson.
The latest census data shows
that there are nearly 6,000 citi-
zens over the age of 65 in
Gadsden County. The mission
of the Gadsden County Senior


Services, Inc. is to provide pre-
ventive services to the sixty-
plus population who have been
determined to be culturally, eco-
nomically, and/or socially
deprived. Toward that end, the
newly organized Gadsen Senior
Services, Inc. was established
on May 1, 2005 as a non-profit
corporation. Federal and state
grants also help to assist the sen-
iors of Gadsden County. The
organization is under the guid-
ance of the Area Agency of
North Florida and the
Department of Elderly Affairs.
The mission of the non-prof-
it organization is to also main-
tain independence, dignity, and
well-being at home and to pro-
vide programs of homemaking,
personal care, respite care, com-
panionship, medical supplies,
emergency alert response, tele-
phone reassurance, transporta-
tion, group meals at the senior
citizens center Monday through
Friday as well as home-deliv-
ered meals.

Thursday afternoon, October
.26, the Gadsden County
Domestic Violence and Sexual
Abuse Task Force, along with
Refuge House, will sponsor its
annual "Speak Out Against
Domestic Violence" on the
Courthouse Square. The event,
which is held to honor those vic-
tims' who were killed and cele-
brate those who have survived
domestic violence, begins at 4
p.m. with informational booths
set up to provide hand-outs and
referrals on a myriad of subjects
that affect the family.
The program will begin at
5:30 p.m. with speakers, poetry,
testimonials, interpretative
dances, songs of inspiration,
refreshments and more. A can-
dlelight vigil with a symbolic
walk around the courthouse will
end the program at 7 p.m.
"It is important that the pub-
lic attend the "Speak Out" to
show that this community has
vowed to prevent domestic vio-
lence. This sometimes hidden
crime affects not just those
involved but the entire commu-
nity," said Sheriff Morris Young.
"This is the first year since
we began keeping track in 1991
that we have not had a death
attributed to domestic violence
in Gadsden County. We feel that
this year we have something to
celebrate. It has taken years of
hard work to educate the public
and to reach women to say they
are not alone," said Carnell
Jones, Gadsden County's coor-
dinator for the Refuge House.
The Refuge House provides
direct services to battered
women, children, and sexual
assault survivors as well as work
to eliminate the conditions in
society that allow such violence
to continue. In 1995, Refuge
House opened an office in
Gadsden County to serve
Gadsden and Liberty counties,
and a full-time counselor pro-
vides direct services to victims
of domestic violence.
One of the major components
of Refuge House is counseling.
"We offer individual supportive
counseling, educational and
support groups, services for vic-
tims whose partners are in bat-
terers treatment programs, and


children's educational support
groups and individual counsel-
ing," Jones said.
All services from Refuge
House are free and confidential.
But, Jones said, victims can
sometimes write what they will
not say openly. "They wanted to
share their stories with the pub-
lic, but they have asked that
their identity not be revealed. It
is therapeutic for them to write
how they feel," Jones said.
Here are excerpts from
abused women who are now in a
class getting help and learning
about domestic violence:

"Domestic violence destroys
happy homes. It kills self-
esteem, makes you depressed.
When its domestic violence in a
home, you feel there is nowhere
to run, isolated and lonely. Even
though you have a partner, I feel
it affects all relationships, work,
family, friends, etc. No one
deserves to be in a violent situa-
tion, especially if there is sup-
posed to be love there. If some-
one you love abuses you, who
can you trust or love?"

"Domestic violence has
affected a lot in my life. First,
my father ahd mother had
domestic problems when I was a
child and I believe that is why I
pick the men I do. My ex-hus-
band would' beat on me and my
ex-boyfriend. Kind of like a
woman chooses a man like her
father, because her husband is
like a father because he works
and takes care of the home and
food. When it started happening
I thought it was a normal thing.
But I am learning it is not nor-
mal."

"I've been abused and I've
also been the abuser. Through
domestic violence classes, I
have learned to control my
anger and how to avoid situa-
tions where violence may occur.
The classes have made me real-
ize that my anger was covering
my true emotions."

"Domestic violence is one of
the worse crimes committed in
the presence of a child. It can
leave deep wounds and scars on
the emotional and rational state
of a young mind that cannot be
seen but never fade. It influ-


ences any and all relationships
that individual will have in their
entire life. The mental wounds
can be worse than any physical
injury because of the healing
process.

"I'm a survivor of a very vio-
lent and controlling relationship.
A relationship I believed was
going to end my life. It was a
relationship I thought I would
never escape. It was a relation-
ship that brought much pain and
hurt. Not only to me, but to my
children as well. Not only was I
black and blue but my heart and
soul was also bruised. It was a
relationship that took me to my
lowest point, so low that I tried
to beat him to the punch and
tried to end my own life. It was
a relationship not easy to walk
away from, always wondering
what comer he was around. It
was a relationship disguised
with politeness, sweetness, gifts,
and understanding until we were
behind closed doors."

"I've been abused since I was
a young child, when I got older I
was beaten by men. I feel for
anyone that is sexually abused
or mistreated. I know from past
experience that the bruises will
disappear and go away but emo-
tionally, abuse doesn't ever go
away."

Here are a few facts
about domestic violence that
were supplied by the Refuge
House:
50 to 70 percent of men
who batter their partners
also batter their children.
Battered mothers indi-
cate that 87 percent of their
children witness the abuse.
Abusers use threats,
intimidation, isolation,
denial, economics, and
blaming the victim, as well
as physical and sexual vio-
lence for control.
Domestic violence
affects all racial, class, and
ethnic groups.
Research indicates that
domestic violence occurs at
the same rate in rural dis-
tricts as in non-rural dis-
tricts.
According to the
Bureau of Justice, 90-95%
of all domestic violence vic-
tims are women.
For more information on
domestic violence, how to
get help, how to give help,
or how to volunteer, call the

(Children's Program) or the
24-hour Crisis Line at 850-

Jaguars jump Raiders 50-14;


- __ key district win for EGHS


Cats let chances slip away; drop


34-22 district game to John Paul 1


East Gadsden's Earl Thomas ran a Rickards
fumble in for a touchdown on the games first play
and started the Jaguars off to a 50-14 win over the
Raiders in a district contest played at Cox Stadium
in Tallahassee Friday night.
It was the Raiders homecoming game and
before it was over they wished they had selected a
different opponent for the annual festivities.
Not only did Thomas score the first touchdown
for the Jaguars he also scored the last one of the
night when he returned an interception 52-yards
for a score midway the last quarter.
In between East Gadsden got touchdown runs
of 1-yard from. Micah Brown, 21 and 2 yards from
Ron Gordon, and 4 yards from Darius Jackson,
who also had a 72-yard pass reception from
Jamaica Moore for a score. The Jaguars also got
6 extra point kicks from Jose Sanchez and a safe-
ty when Mike Williams sacked the Rickards quar-
terback in the end zone.
Jackson finished the night with 103 yards rush-
ing and 101 receiving to lead the offense. Thomas


finished with 2 fumble recoveries, and Ron
Gordon had 15, tackles for the defense. Montez
Fryson also was in on several key hits as the East
Gadsden defense limited Rickards to just over 100
yards rushing.
"I was very pleased with our overall effort."
Jaguar head coach Scott Anderson said. "The
defense controlled their running game and the
offense was very opportunistic."
The win gives the Jaguars an overall 5-2 record
and they are 2-1 in the district. They face district
foe Wakulla County Friday night at Jaguar Field.
Wakulla is also 2-1 in the district so the game is
pretty much a showdown-contest to see who cari
make the play-offs.
"Wakulla is a very physical strong team."
Anderson says. "They will try to run it down our
throat." He continued. "It's a very important game
because the winner stays in the play-off hunt. We
also need to win the game to insure us of a win-
ning season."
Game time is 7:30 pm.


Munroe looked liked they had things in control
early in the game, but the Bobcats missed some
opportunities and saw John Paul II escape Corry
Field with a 34-22 District 2-1B win last Friday
night.
Munroe took their opening drive 68 yards but
lost a fumble at the John Paul three.
They did come back and drove 64 yards for a
touchdown on their next possession. That t.d.
came on a 16 yard Clay White to Dontavius
Johnson pass for a 6-0 lead in the opening quarter.
The Bobcats continued to dominate the first
half and seemed headed for another touchdown
when the Panthers held on their 2 late in the first
half.
That's when momentum changed. John Paul's
quarterback Andreas Kilpatrick escaped twice on

plays that helped get John Paul to midfield with 4
seconds left in the half.
On the half's last play Kilpatrick scrambled
and passed to Avery Moore fdr a touchdown tying
the game at 6 at intermission.
After that it was pretty much a Kilpatrick show.
He hit Moore for a 52 yard scoring pass early in
the third quarter and ran 60 yards for a touchdown
late in the stanza.
Kirkpatrick then had scoring runs of 15 and 2
yards in the fourth quarter to wrap up the Panthers
points.
Johnson got a 12 yard touchdown in quarter
three and a 4 yard score in quarter four to get the
Bobcats points on the board.
The loss dropped Munroe to 3-4 this year.
They will play at South Walton Friday night.

Munroe golf team 3rd in

district tournament


By Susie Morris
Although the Munroe
Bobcats earned a spot in the
Regional tournament for Class
A golf, they were still disap-
pointed with their third place
finish in the Class A District 2
tournament last week.
"We had beaten everybody
but Wakulla in our district and
had played'them really well so
we really felt like we had a shot
at the trophy," said first year
coach Kevin Smith. "But at
least we -still earned a trip to
regionals."
At Wildwood Country Club
in Wakulla last Tuesday,
Munroe scored a team score of
332 on eighteen holes of play.
Wakulla and Maclay tied for the
top spot with a 316 team score.
For Munroe, Ben Young was the
only player to break 80 as the
junior shot a 79. He was fol-
lowed by John Dooner with an
83, John-Hilton Revell with an
84 and Sam Young with an 86.
Walker Cox finished fifth for the
team with a 91.
The team left on Sunday for


d
1


their 5th game in a row.
Jackson scored on runs from scrimmage of
43 and 44 yards and also had a touchdown on a 47
yard interception return. Ron Burns scored the
other Panther touchdown on a 3-yard run and Jose
Calderon kicked 2 extra points and had a 22 yard
field goal.
The win dropped West Gadsden to 4-3 for the"
year and 4-1 in the district. They are off this week
and will play Port St. Joe next week in an all
important district clash in Greensboro.

Shooting

Continued from Page 1
and Kia left the complex in
opposite directions. "The Lexus
was met by a marked unit from
the Chattahoochee Police
Department and the officer
attempted to pull the Lexus over.
The driver of the Lexus refused
to stop which led to a vehicle
chase for several miles, until the
officer no longer had visual
contact with the Lexus," the
report stated.
The owner of the Lexus was
contacted and informed
authorities that her vehicle should
be parked at her home, and if it
was not, it was stolen. Around the
same time, a Gadsden County
deputy was on patrol and joined
with the CPD officer. The pursuit
of the Lexus continued into the
unincorporated area of
Greensboro where the three men
in the car bailed out and ran on
foot in the area of Albert Shepard
Road.
4' There were several-bullet holes
in the Lexus but no one was
injured.
Jackson said she was relieved
that the incident did not occur on
a weekend, when children might
have been outside. "This is one of
those isolated, senseless incidents
by people who don't live here.
We have worked hard to take this
complex from "the projects" to a
community. No one who lives
here was directly responsible, but
indirectly, people have to make
better choices about the people
they invited into their
community," Jackson said.,
She praised the CPD and Chief
Van Pullen, and the Gadsden
County Sheriff's Office for their
quick work in apprehending the
suspects.


Hospital

Continued from Page 1
hospital open," Dixon said.
"The Federal Bankruptcy,
Court," said Commissioner
Brenda Holt, "will not just let
you go in and open (the hospital).
We've been to the governor and
the legislature. For some reason,
the contract (with Ashford
Healthcare, Inc.) was written in
such a way that we became the
landlord and Ashford became the
tenant.
"If I could have opened up .that,,.
hospital, I would have around
midnight on Jan. 22 when my son
died and I was in the back of that
ambulance going to Tallahassee.
The bottom line is that you can't
make them do .anything. If you
have a better answer, I'd like to
hear it."
Dixon said we're waiting to go
to Washington to meet with the
President of the United States, if
necessary to get our hospital
back. "We've spent good money
for a good cause (hiring
competent bankruptcy
attorneys)," Dixon said.
"When GCM closed, two other.
hospitals in two counties closed,
too. For some reason ours was
the only one where they held the
license. One county is spending a
million dollars a month to keep
their hospital open. We're doing
everything we know to do to get
the hospital open. We've got to
make not only cosmetic but
construction changes," Dixon
said.
Emily Rowan, who attends
nearly every meeting, came to the
defense of the commission.
"I don't know where you have
been-these meeting are open to
the public. This board has gone
above and beyond. They have
worked on this hospital very
much," she said before thanking
the commission for what they
have already done at get the
hospital open.

In other matters commissioners:

* Voted to hold a workshop to
refine an ordinance for
immediate-family-exempt
subdivision amendments.
* Heard an update from Max
Martinez and Sherrie
VanLandingham on the progress
of the half-cent sales tax that will
be on the November ballot.
* Approved $5,000 to provide
funding to Workforce Plus for the
purchase of "Win/Workeys"


business support systems that
will screen applicants before they
are interviewed and in some
cases help applicants get the
proper training to land a job.
* Approved J-II Investments for
a small scale amendment change.
* Commissioner Dixon reported
on a joint meeting with City of
Quincy Commissioner Keith
Dowdell.
Some of the topics discussed
included the fire service
agreement, the hospital, the
Community Redevelopment
Agency (CRA), parks and
recreation, solid waste,
Information Technology, and the
2007 legislative agenda.

Holt said the proceeds from
this fundraising campaign will go
to subsidize funds from the coun-
ty and the state. "The effort has
been and continues to be support-
ed by the Alpha Kappa Alpha and
Delta Sigma Theta sororities.
However, the Board of Directors,
along with these organizations,
wants to establish an annual
fundraising program and is look-
ing for donors who are willing to
make an annual contribution to
the senior program," she said.
There are several proposed
sponsorship levels:
*The Golden Years, $2,500 or
more; *The Silver-Haired Years,
$1,000; *The Bronze Years,
$750; *We Care, $500; *I Care,

In the next few weeks, senior
citizens and others Will be outside
and inside local business estab-
lishments rocking for contribu-
tions. The campaign will culmi-
nate with a rock-a-thon spon-
sored by the seniors on Friday,

Driver's license, DUI
and vehicle checkpoints
The Gadsden County
Sheriff's Office will conduct dri-
ver's license, DUI and vehicle
inspection checkpoints during
October on these roads. The
times and dates of these check-
points will vary.
Recognizing the danger pre-
sented to the public by defective
vehicle equipment, deputies will
concentrate their efforts on vehi-
cles being operated with defects
such as bad brakes, worn tires
and defective lighting equipment.
In addition, DUI, enforcement
will be directed to drivers who
insist on driving impaired.
The Gadsden County Sheriff-
Office has found these check-
points to be an effective means of
enforcing the equipment and dri-
ver's license laws of Florida
while insuring the protection of
all motorists.

Shrieks of laughter and the
-occasional rustle of corn stalks
=emerged from the middle of a
-corn field maze at the North
-Florida Research and Education
-,Center in Quincy Friday.
" Voices, muted by rows of
,corn stalks, discussed animated-
"ly which way to go from the
-middle of the maze.
"The children of the corn are
-on their way," a volunteer's
-voice announced via two-way
-radio.
Finally, 10 Stewart Street
-Elementary, fourth-graders
-materialized, having made their
,way through with the help of a
-map.
Another volunteer handed
:them bottled water and bags of
-popcorn and ushered them to the
:next station on their route the
pumpkin patch.
I "The reason I wanted to do
this was that so many kids don't
,understand where their food
;comes from. I wanted them to
'come out and use their senses,
.to see the product or the by-
-product used in what they eat,"
-said Monica Brinkley, UF/IFAS
-Liberty County Cooperative
-Extension Office director.
:"They have really been super
-attentive. We're out in the field -
lit's the perfect learning environ-
:ment."
- Fourth-graders from five
-counties Calhoun, Gadsden,
-Gulf, Liberty and Wakulla -
'took part in Ag Adventure Day
-last week. They visited stations
-set up for peanutes, cotton, soy-
'beans, corn, pumpkins, wild-
:flowers and butterfly gardens.
-They got to sample some of the
food products made from the
drops and take home some wild-
flower seeds.
" This is the first year for the
,event, which Brinkley hopes to
.make an annual one.
' To fund the week-long agri-
Ccullg0.al experience, she wrote a
'grant to the Florida Ag min the
Classroom program and relied
on volunteers to help out.
As part of the experience,
students listened to Dr. Steve
-Olsen talk about pumpkins and
romped through the center's
;pumpkin patch. Each student
>was given a pumpkin to take
home.
Ten students from each par-
-ticipating school were selected
.for the field trip. Stewart Street
.Elementary teacher Jeff Starks
said he was impressed with the
reactions and behavior of his
-students.
"They're pretty excited -
they're involved, they're asking
questions," he said. "Some are
:'nuch more evolved in terms of
scientific knowledge than I
"would have guessed."

e-commerce
workshop at
Quincy library


Opportunity Florida will be
*" hosting a workshop on its e-
commerce program on Tuesday,
Oct. 24 at 6 p.m. at the Gadsden
.' County Public Library, 732 Pat
Thomas Parkway in Quincy.
Opportunity Florida has
developed a system even for
those who have little experience
on computers to sell products
and services over the Internet.
This initiative has been made
possible through a grant
received from the Chipola
Regional Workforce
Development Board.
Opportunity Florida will be
partnering with the local
libraries, Chambers of
Commerce and One-Stops to
conduct seminars, on the pro-
gram.
"When the program was first
- presented to us, we immediately


saw how families could supple-
ment their incomes by selling
home-based business products
and services. As I drive on the
backroads of the region, I see
signs outside of homes where
everything from smoked meats,
rocking chairs and numerous
other homemade products are
sold. However, the only way to
buy is to write down the phone
number or actually stop to pur-
chase the products. This pro-
gram will provide a way for
folks to enter the global market-
place with very little marketing
cost," said Richard Williams,
executive director of the
Chipola Workforce Board.
The program is ready for
viewing and set-up by going to
www.opportunityflorida.com;
but for those who feel they need
extra help, there will be a series
of seminars conducted at the
libraries and One-Stops.
For further information, call
Opportunity Florida at 850-718-

G-Watch looking out for our health


Promoting positive lifestyles starts in our schools


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
Gadsden County Wellness Approach To
Community Health, G-WATCH, is making
strides in the county. And, it's starting in the
most likely place, the schools.
The idea is to start with the children at
school and encourage them to get their
parents involved.
While the organization may be new to
some in Gadsden County, for nearly a year a
group of health-minded individuals have
been trying to monitor and improve the
health of the entire county.
The mission of G-WATCH is to establish
an environment that will increase health
awareness, promote positive lifestyles,
decrease the risk of diseases, and enhance
the quality of life for students, families, and
staff at the school district level.
Through this organization, a school-dis-
trict G-WATCH has been organized to coor-
dinate health issues, including the promo-

cising now and if they didn't keep it up, they
would gain weight that will be very, very
hard to get rid of later," she said.
Exercise alone will not achieve the
desired results, so G-WATCH is also imple-
menting eating schedules to comply with the
Florida state guideline of a 20-minute seated
eating time.
Most elementary shcool are in compli-
ance, but at the middle and high school lev-
els, it's more difficult to monitor. Also, G-
WATCH is trying to stop sales of carbonat-
ed beverages during school meal times.
Taylor said there is more to be done if
Gadsden is going to move toward a healthi-
er county. G-WATCH has an ambitious plan
on the drawing board.
"What we want is for all students, par-
ents, and school staff to eat property, stop
smoking and exercise regularly. It can be
done, but it will take the cooperation and
willingness to work at it from everyone,"
she said.

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


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


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

We only have to read our

What are the social obligations
of the Christian in our world?
1. THE CHRISTIAN
SHOULD BE A GOOD CITI-
ZEN: The bible teaches that a
Christian should obey the laws
of our country and should be
loyal to his country. This does
not mean "My country, right or
wrong." If we are convinced that
a certain law is morally or spiri-
tuality wrong, it is our duty to
strive for the rectification of that
law; but while it IS the law, it is
also our duty to obey it. If we
allow anyone to interpret or mis-
interpret the law as he sees fit,
our legal system falls apart and
the result is lawlessness and
rebellion.

Red Ribbon Week is a drug awareness campaign that has occurred in the United States since 1988. It is observed during the last full
week in October, including the weekends before and after, and will be held this year from October 21st to October 29th. Not only i h ii 1
week set aside to educate people and schoolchildren around the nation on drug awareness, [ut i[ is elso a "iml e m.al many students
pledge to be drug free. Because of these pledges, it demonstrates the amount of drug free students in schools, and helps demonstrate
that there are many more kids these days that are against drug use. This year's Red Ribbon Week slogan is "No use of illegal drugs no
illegal use of legal drugs". The slogan emphasizes the fact that no drug abuse, no matter which types of drugs are involved, is safe
Red Ribbon Week was started in memory of a law enforcement official from the DEA, or Drug Enforcement Agency. Enrique 'Ki.I' Camarena was a :.fug enforcement
official -hat .'as working on an undercover case somewhere in Mexico. He was sent to investigate illegal drug activity in Mexico, to help prevent more illegal drugs from
being sent into the United States. Camarena was thirty-seven years old when members of the illegal drug organization kidnapped and murder him for his efforts To make
sure that his work did not go unnoticed, Red Ribbon Week was formed to help educate the public about how drugs can ruin lives, even the lives of people that do not abuse
them. It was also formed to demonstrate that everyone can make a difference.
During this year's Red Ribbon Week you can show your support by wearing a red ribbon, and by participating in school activities that support Red PRbbcion Week Things
that you could do at home with your friends or parents may be to plant red flower and as it grows, it can be a reminder of your pledge. Or perhaps you could prepare a
meal with your parents, with all red foods. Whatever you do this year to celebrate Red Ribbon Week, always be sure to understand what it's really about. Stay drug free!

use not only for himself but also
for others his brothers. He has
a responsibility not only to him-
self and his loved ones, but also
to his brothers in Christ.
3. THE CHRISTIAN
SHOULD REALIZE THAT
ANYONE IN NEED IS HIS
NEIGHBOR: We need to show
responsibility. Christian broth-
erhood can never be legislated,
and federal hound-outs will
never convince the recipient that
we love him. In fact, history
would seem to show that the
money we pump into the foreign
aid program, the more ungrate-
fully dependent these nations
become on the U.S.

Tear down the walls! God
made us one
All men who live upon the
Earth;
He is our Father, we His sons,
Whatever be our human birth
Tear down the walls that sepa-
rate
And bread estrangement,
pride and hate;
The poor, the oppressed, the
rich, the great
Are brothers in our human
state.
Edgar Cooper Mason

District receives funding for career academies


A "Showcase of Excellence" at the
2006 K-12 Conference and Innovation
Fair has put thousands of dollars in the
bank for high school students in
Gadsden County.
After attending the Annual K-12
conference for educators in Orlando
Superintendent of Schools, Reginald C.
James said, "I don't mind attending
conferences when they merit signifi-
cant opportunities for our students."
The Superintendent recently
returned from the K-12 conference with
two $40,000 approved grants for sec-
ondary students. One grant is for an
Academy of Law and Government and
the other is for the establishment of an
Academy of Tourism, Hospitality, and


Resort Management.
Career Focus
This year's conference was enlight-
ening, invigorating, and informative.
The focus was on innovative approach-
es to improving achievement in our
middle and high schools. Fifty schools
featured at the Innovation Fair and over
a dozen more during breakout sessions
represented exemplary programs in the
state. "I was inspired by the work of
these schools from around the State of
Florida and.feel strongly we are cable
of replicating their successes,"
expressed Mr. James. "This will be one
of the first steps in highlighting the
state's best model academies as our
schools look to implement these pro-


grams with the assistance of mentor
districts."
What are the Benefits?
Chancellor of K-12 Public Schools
Dr. Cheri Pierson Yecke expressed. her
goal of enhancing rigor at the middle
level, and Commissioner John L. Winn
emphasized his goal for every second-
ary public school in Florida to have a
career academy by the 2009-2010
school year.
All the same, one of Gadsden dis-
trict's focal points in closing the
achievement gap and ensuring higher
grades for middle and high school stu-
dents is linking what they are studying
to possible career options for the future.
"What better way to center the atten-


tion of teenage students for success
than to provide them a link between
training and future employment,"
James said.
Students often ask the question;
"When I graduate, what are my career
options?" Students want to know the
benefits and the reasons why they
should be making higher grades. "One
solution is providing academy opportu-
nities so they can be successful" said
Superintendent James.
Governor's Commendations
Several keynote speakers represent-
ed national organizations with proven
records of increasing student achieve-
ment and advocacy for all students.
Governor Bush spoke on the education-


al progress of Florida's students under
the A+ Plan for Education and encour-
aged Superintendent James to continue
the outstanding gains our students have
made.
"Gadsden schools are improving
and reform is happening! Parents and
the community soon will see more
improvement spreading throughout all
schools in the district. Nevertheless, we
still need your help because most
importantly, this new reform is for our
students in our community. They are
the ones who will reap the results of
these Career Academies and align them
with the success needed for a better and
brighter future for Gadsden County,"
James said.

Elementary School on Grandparents' Day.

Grandparents' Day at St. John
St. John Elementary School celebrated Grandparents' Day on
Sept. 21, It was awesome! Grandparents entered the campus with

Cunningham, St. John Elementary School's parent liaison. She
added, "There were grandparents, great-grandparents, great-great-
grandparents, moms, dads, and a host of other relatives and friends
that came out to make this event an enormous success. The
Superintendent of Schools, Reginald James, showed his support for
Grandparents' Day. Certificates and door prizes were given out to
show appreciation.
"Please don't wait until another Grandparents' Day to come out;
you are welcome at any time. Parents, you are loved and needed. I
look forward to seeing you soon."
