S12-yearm-old saves family


CPR, fire safety she learned at

school turns Alfreda Gunn

into a hero, but home is gone

by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
It was Sunday morning and 12-year-old Alfreda Gunn had not been
feeling well all week. Her, mother, Marranda, allowed her to miss
church. By mid-afternoon she would become one of Gadsden
County's youngest heroines.
Around noon, as she was lying down watching television, her 5-
year-old cousin Allyala, suddenly ran from the rear of the family's
mobile home. "I saw smoke and asked her where was Jr. (Norman)
and she ran back toward the bedroom like she was going to get him.
By the time I got up, I saw more smoke and my little cousin was
headed toward the back. The smoke knocked her back toward the
living room so I grabbed her up and took her outside," Alfreda said.
"I was screaming for my mother to wake up, but I couldn't get her
up. I finally got her up and out, I think she must have been inhaling
smoke, and I went back inside looking for my little brother, but I
couldn't see him because there was smoke everywhere. He was
under the bed and the fire was on top of the bed. I wrapped the quilt
around my arm, it was burning my skin and I couldn't see anything
so I just started feeling around under the bed until I found him,"
Alfreda said. She pulled Norman, 4, from under the bed and carried


him outside.

Old Quincy


High gym


gets reprieve

Eric Hinson's one-man mission to save the old
Quincy High School gymnasium bought the
building a reprieve Tuesday night.
The building is the current home of Gadsden
Elementary Magnet School.
Hinson convinced fellow Gadsden County
School Board members Tuesday night to grant
the old gymnasium a reprieve from the wrecking
ball long enough to see if funds could be obtained
to finance a restoration project. The vote was 4-1
with Judge Helms voting against the measure.
Helms had argued before the vote to proceed
with demolition, saying the building is unsafe and
the board does not have the money available to
repair or restore.
Hinson said that he has had conversations with
Rep. Curtis Richardson in which he said a
combination of grant money and state funds could
possibly be assembled to finance a $1 million
restoration project. Richardson had told him that
funds to build a new $5 million school would be
"hard to get", Hinson said.
When asked by Helms if he had any knowledge
of available funds, Superintendent Reginald
James said that he had not discussed the issue
with state representatives, but would be willing to
do so.
Helms said he felt the board doesn't have 'a
choice at this point. "We don't have the funds to
repair it and it keeps falling in," Helms said.
"Our legislators can't do much on their own.
They've got to have the vote of their peers, just
like we do. It's going to be a while before we find
out (if funds can be obtained). My concern is it
will get worse in that length of time. We can't
afford to do anything (with the building). All we
can afford to do is tear it down."
Hinson said estimates on repairing both the
gymnasium building and the classroom building
housing GEMS come in at approximately
$1,000,000. Demolition costs will be near
$200,000, he said.
In other action the board
*Recognized two churches for their
contributions to the school's faith-based
partnerships.
*Approved a resolution in cooperation with the
Classroom Teacher's Association asking the next
governor and legislature for funding for smaller
class sizes and competitive wages.
*Approved grant-funded programs totaling over
$150,000 for the current school year.
*Changed the date of the next board meeting to
the third Tuesday of November to meet a state-
mandated timeframe for reorganization of the
board.

Quincy hit with yet

another cost overrun...

this time for the audit


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
Contract overruns was one of the very
items that the forensic auditor said the City
of Quincy has not kept an eye on and that
had caused some of its financial problems:
contract amounts that had been agreed upon
at one price and the final price was totally
different.
Tuesday night, city attorney Jack McLean
told city commissioners that Thomas
Howell Ferguson, P.A., the man the city
hired to conduct its forensic audit, had done
the exact same thing, .
In a letter to McLean dated Oct. 20, 2006,
Ferguson explained that although the
original estimate for forensic services was
to be $89,425, the city actually owes him
another $43,744.50, bringing the entire bill
to $133,195.50.
Ferguson did not, as commissioners said
they had instructed him to do, inform the
commission that the amount would exceed
that agreed upon before the additional hours
and manpower were spent.
"We are proposing that we bill the City of


Quincy for one half of the excess or
$21,872.25," Ferguson wrote in the letter.
Commissioners seemed to feel that the
$89,425 contract was what they would pay
at the end of forensic audit when a final
report was presented. On the contrary, "The
contract we signed was an estimated fee,"
said McLean.
"When Mr. Thomas (Ferguson) left here
that night I thought we were going to
receive a final report," said commissioner
Andy Gay.
"We could receive a final report.
Depending on how it was laid out, it would
cost us another $500 or $1,200," McLean
said. He added that he felt Ferguson realizes
that the amount he is charging exceeds the
city's budget for the audit.
"He stood there and cited numerous times
how contractors did work that exceeded the
(agreed upon) amount," said Mayor Sherrie
Taylor.
"I'm disappointed in Ferguson and the
way they conducted themselves by going
over by $43,000," Gay said.
"I told you all that, before this all got

According to a recent Mason-Dixon poll, incumbent
Senator Bill Nelson has a commanding lead over
challenger Katherine Harris. If the vote was taken
today, 57 percent of those likely to vote would vote for
Nelson while 31 would vote for Harris.
"With two weeks and six days from the election, I
take nothing for granted, no matter what the polls say,"
Nelson told a crowd of supporters at the Gadsden Arts
Center last Wednesday morning.
Quincy was the first of several stops Nelson planned
to make in the Panhandle to maintain support and pick

"Helping You Feel Better"


Nora Larso

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!

Massey Drugs

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.
Miss Jewel delivers to dozens of customers 5 days a week!

Forest Awareness Month at Bear Creek


By LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor

If you're looking for some-
thing to do Saturday, head out to
Bear Creek Educational Forest
for its open house.
October is Forest Awareness
Month, and the open house is
one way to let people know the
resources that are available to
them, said Daniel Stanley, U.S.
Department of Agriculture and
Consumer Services Division of
Forestry recreation coordinator.
"We're just trying to get out
the word about Florida trails and
about Bear Creek," said Stanley,


who is based in Tallahassee.
"We'll have guided hikes we'll
have our fire equipment there to
show how it is used to fight
wildfires and conduct prescribed
burns. Our main goal is for folks
to come out and learn more
about the forest."
Bear Creek Educational
Forest is a 492-acre tract just
south of Quincy off Pat Thomas
Parkway. The site has a class-
room which seats 60 and an
adjacent picnic shelter, along
with several trails that have
informational recordings along
the way.
Activities planned for


Saturday include decorating free
"tree cookie" nametags and
making pinecone bird feeders.
The event runs from 9 a.m. to
3 p.m. There is no admission
charge.
The forest is at 8125 Pat
Thomas Parkway. From
Interstate 10, take exit 181 onto
State Road 267 (Pat Thomas
Parkway). Go south on S.R. 267
for 4.8 miles. The entrance is on
the left.
From Highway 20, turn north
onto S.R. 267. Go north for 7.5
miles. The entrance is on the
right.

SWAT is coming soon to a
school near you.
Actually, SWAT (School
Wide Assistance Team) repre-
sentatives have already been in
touch with Gadsden County
School District staff and princi-
pals of the three schools in the
county that scored a "D" grade
last year on the state's accounta-
bility report.
The SWAT program is a new
statewide initiative to support
schools in Florida that ranked
below a "C" last year.
"This is right at the begin-
ning of the process," said Tom
Maher, state director of the pro-
gram. "There are 140 schools
statewide that are 'D' or 'F'
schools. Our primary target is
those that are Title I."
In Gadsden County, East
Gadsden High School, George


W. Munroe Elementary School
and West Gadsden High School
earned -"D" grades last year.
SWAT's Assistance Plus Teams
will work with the principals
and staff of those schools to pro-
vide coaching and ideas for
improving FCAT scores. They
will also emphasize the state's
Continuous Improvement
Model and review each school's
improvement plan.
"This is a concept which the
chancellor of education (Cheri
Pierson Yecke) developed,"
Maher said. "She presented the
program to the state Board of
Education in September.
Through SWAT, we can identify
a supportive network to draw
upon a professional network to
coach and monitor school staff.
We think it's exciting because it
gives the districts a chance to
showcase some of their success-
es."


Former Assistant
Superintendent of Leon County
Schools Bill Johnson is the
regional team leader for the pro-
gram. Gadsden County Schools
Superintendent Reginald James
said he sees that as a plus.
"Bill Johnson is a brilliant
gentleman. Anything Bill's
associated with will have a pos-
itive outcome." James said. "I
feel that certainly we're going to
listen to what they have to say. I
know Bill and what his ability
is."
The program is administered
through the Panhandle Area
Education Consortium and is
funded through the end of fiscal
year 2007.
"This is a year-long process.
Our goal will be to assess the
progress and evaluate the pro-
gram next spring and summer,"
Maher said.


Roxanne's story...breast cancer survivor


October is Breast Cancer
Awareness Month. Therefore,
it is only fitting that I do my
part to help raise awareness.
On June 19, 2006 I went in for
my first mammogram. I,am a
42 year-old female in relatively
good health with no signs or
symptoms of cancer, and no
family history of cancer.
Women had told me that it was
an uncomfortable or awkward
process, but there are some
things we must do for our own
good. Two pictures of this side,
then two of the other but she


wanted to be sure the film came
out so I waited. Then she need-
ed two more, but only of my
left beast and from a complete-
ly different vantage point. I
knew she saw something. The
next day there was a message
on my voice mail: yes, they
saw something of concern, so
please call. I called, they sched-
uled a biopsy for Friday and on
Monday June 26, 2006 I got the
news. You have cancer, and
yes, it is malignant. I was a
puddle and cried for hours.
What type of cancer did the


doctor say? How far along is
it? Why didn't I feel any
lumps? What is the recom-
mended course of treatment?
Will I recover? I had so many
questions. My health care sys-
tem, Dr. Cyneetha Strong and
her nurse Princess, went into
overdrive to make referrals to
surgeons Who reviewed my
mammogram, set met up for an
MRI to get better pictures and
scheduled my first surgery.
Then I began to do my
research. I started to read and
talk to people, and found out

Virgil's poem


Out of the mouths of babes often comes
the truth.
Several months ago, a fourth grade
student at George Munroe Elementary
School entered into a contest
commemorating Fair Housing Month in
Florida. The 10-year-old came in first
place for Gadsden County and won $50
and was presented a plaque during a
county commission meeting for his efforts.
When the article was written I requested,
but never got, a copy of the poem from
county officials. I thought I wasn't going
to get the opportunity to share this
beautiful work of a child with the readers.
As fate would have it, earlier this month I
interviewed a woman who was surviving
breast cancer. When I went to the home, I
had the opportunity to met the woman's
children. Virgil is her son.
When I heard the poem for the first time,
I felt that his poem was heartfelt and
meaningful.
Here is Virgil's poem:

One World
There is only one world.
So, therefore we must all live in it


together.
God did not make a world for blacks or
whites.
He made this world for all people to live
in together.

We have many other people who do not
speak the same language
Or, the skin color is different.
Some people pick on other people just to
be funny.
No matter what a person's differences
are.
We must all live together in this one
world.

We have many other people that are
blind and in wheelchairs that do not get
treated right.
If I was blind and in the wheelchair and I
didn't get treated right, I would feel bad
and my heart broken.

God did not make this world for
everyone to get mistreated. He made this
world for everyone to live in, in peace.

Thank you Virgil. Enough said.


It was cold. Unusually cold for October.
We were hunkered down in the back of.Mr.
John Charles Sasser's old pick up. Joe acted
like he had permission to be "out with the
truck" and no one questioned him on it. We
had a "don't ask, don't tell" policy way back
as far as I could remember.
If we weren't sure our parents would "go
along" with some hair-brain scheme Yogi or
Ricky Lynn were always coming up with-
we just acted like everything was
normall......until we heard the siren or
somebody's daddy had their belt off and was
closing in on us.
I believe Joe might have been sixteen. But
as I look back with a more honest eye he
could have been fifteen. And if that was the
Halloween Millicent Blackburn came up
from Memphis to spend with her
grandmother-Joe was fourteen!
I do know for sure he was easing through
downtown with all of us "hiding" in the bed
of that old Ford. We musta had fifty
pumpkins in there with us. We got most of
them from Archie Moore's field. 'Course,
come to think or it, I'd borrowed a few from
Daddy. And Mr. John Charles had a whole
bottom lot full of them things!
They weren't much good for nothing.
Pumpkin pie was way too bland and mushy
for me. Mother would cut the top off of a
big one each year, de-gut that thing, cut
some eye holes and a mouth, stick a candle
in the soggy bottom and proudly display it
on the porch as the trick or treaters would
come by. I can still see that orange mucus
with the little seeds floating around draining
down our sink. It was enough to make a
body puke!
We had become way too big to be trick or
treat'en. And the "haunted house" up at the
volunteer fire hall wasn't quite as haunted as
it used to be. We had put in ten good years at
the high school Halloween Carnival. We had
out grown fishing booths, bobbing for ghouls
and cake walks.
Yogi balanced a "big one" up on the top of
the tail gate. We planned to drop it in the
middle of the intersection under the only red
light in town. The idea was to smash that
thing dead center of the road and ease over
to the other side of the square and see how
many-THE PUMPKIN DIDN'T BURST!
It bounced up about a foot in the air and
started rolling down E. Cedar Avenue
toward Highway 79.
You've got to be kidding me! Joe stopped
dead still and we watched in silent awe as
that pumpkin gathered speed. We had all
raised up to get a better look when Mr. Red
Melton pulled his big Buick out of the
American Legion parking lot right in front of
the oncoming missile.
Ruth Ann or LaRenda gasped. I thought "if
Mr. Red wrecks that car, Daddy will kill
me". Millicent jumped out of the truck and
lit a shuck for her grandmother's. Buddy
yelled, "We don't need to be here."
Joe hit the gas and we leaped past Dr.
Holmes' office. We heard the screech of
brakes and the pumpkin smash....but, as


Yogi decried later,. when we "Were letting
the dust settle" in the darkness behind the
Gulf Station, "I'd give a ten dollar bill to
have seen Mr. Red's face."
We listened for sirens or any extra ordinary
commotion. As the stillness engulfed us we
pondered our situation. It was Halloween
night. We were all together. Exceptfor
Millicent. It was still early. And v. e-ajd
forty-nine pumpkins in the back offlis truck.
"Forrest Hill." Ricky Lynn had a4ind like
you wouldn't believe!
Joe wheeled us to the top and turned the
lights off. Buddy ran half way down the hill
so he could see back up Main Street toward
town. When a car turned the comer and
headed down Main, Buddy signaled and we
.let a couple of pumpkins loose! Forrest Hill
wasn't all that high but those pumpkins built
up a fair head of steam as they bowled down
the hill. The first two cars we were way
behind. The pumpkins smashed harmlessly
into the curb. We needed to adjust our
tactics. We let a wave of the orange
projectiles go in three second intervals at the
next vehicle. It was like shooting ducks in a
barrel. We couldn't miss! It looked like the
whole hillside was moving as a stampede of
pumpkins rolled and bounced toward Main
Street.
"People," we were already moving toward
the back of the truck as Pam Collins spoke
up, "we might have over done this one!"
Joe had us all the way out by the Chadwick
Oil Company when the bombs hit. We could
only laugh and talk about what might have
happened back on North Main. We had
pulled in behind Chadwick's to listen for the
siren. "Isn't this so much better than putting
on those masks and walking all over town
just to get a few pieces of candy?" Buddy
reminded Mary E. that he thought she looked
better with the mask on.....
We were laughing at that when Ricky
Lynn said, "How about the overpass?"
I wasn't sure about the overpass. We hit a
car from way up there, we might could really
do some damage. But, as Jane Hill pointed
out, "We've got lots of pumpkins left."
The plan, of course, was to drop the
pumpkin well in front of the car. Just sorta
"ghost'em" a little. We hit the second
vehicle right square in the hood! It was, as
Suzie Cozart said later, "The worst case of
pumpkin throwing she had ever seen!"
Mrs. Callie Henshaw's '56 Chevrolet took
the hit. I can still see the orange mucus with
the zillion little seeds settling over the hood,
windshield and top of that car. I didn't have
time to puke! The siren wailed at about the
same time the red light came on.
Joe put that old Ford into overdrive. We
were throwing out pumpkins on every side to
lighten the load and get rid of the evidence. I
think we tossed Ruth Ann out in front of the
Shiloh Church. When we sped under the
lights at the railroad crossing I got a good
look at everyone's face.....didn't any of us
need a mask.....
Respectfully,

Classic cars: The ultimate

costume accessory


Bleah.
Nothing witty, nothing cute,
No nagging, nothing astute ...
My kingdom for a column idea.
I'll take seasonal for 100, as in "The
Halloween my car broke down while I was
wearing a lame cat costume and I was
subsequently chased across the frosty East
Tennessee hills by a pack of feral dogs."
Back when I still dressed up for costume
parties, I spent no small amount of time
perfecting a cat costume in preparation for
one: black leotard, furry leopard-print ears
and a goofy leopard-print tail with a
certain unnatural angle owing to its
construction of wire coat-hanger wrapped
in furry material.
Thus attired, I climbed into my 1970
black Pontiac LeMans in 1988 and set
off. I've always had a thing for "classic"
cars (read: Cars that are advertised as "runs
well needs body work" or "doesn't run at
all looks great.") Anyway. I was in my
scratchless, dentless, black 1970 Pontiac
LeMans that had run well for weeks. I
realize now how easily I was lulled into a
sense of false security. The sun had gone
down and it was decidedly chilly. The
heater didn't work but my friends' house
was only about 5 miles away so I figured I
could avoid frostbite for that short jaunt.
About 3 miles into that hilly trip the car
went, and I quote, "Kathunk, kathunk,
bbzzzzzz." No amount of cajoling or
coercion got it to crank.
Finally, I decided to hoof it. Slamming
the door shut, I stalked off into the night,
leaving the car cold and alone to think
good and hard about what it had done.
I lived in a rural area surprise and

houses were few and far between. I passed
one and a dog started barking. No big deal.
I passed a second house and a whole
chorus of howling and frantic yapping
erupted. I walked a bit more briskly. About
that time I heard 100 dog toenails scramble
onto the pavement behind me. I broke into
a jog, that bizarre cat tail bobbing madly
along. Sweat trickled over the whiskers
painted onto my face. No, wait that was
sleet starting. I picked up my pace. Finally
I reached the top of a hill and saw lights
from my friends' home at the bottom. I
stopped. Not intending to engage in a mini-
marathon that night, I had worn a pair of
treadless-bottomed boots that would have
caused a quick and painful trip down said
slick road had I gone further. Those five
dogs bayed like they had treed a 'coon. I
yanked off my boots and scampered down
the stick and leaf-littered ground along.the
side of the road.
I pounded on the front door, which a
friend opened.
"What happened to YOU?" she asked,
taking in the cat ears that had slid to one
side and my wet sock feet. "And where's
your car?"
"My car," I huffed, "is 2 miles back and
if there is any justice in this world, a huge,
ice-covered tree has fallen on top of it by
now and smashed it to smithereens."
I've owned several classic cars since
then; I went through a Camaro phase,
drove a Chevy Nova for a while and had, I
think, three LeManses in all.
Not long after I moved to Florida, I met
and married a man who drove a 1968,
cherry red ragtop Pontiac LeMans. My

Vote for health care sales tax

I am imploring each and every one of the citizens
in Gadsden County to please Vote for the half cent
Health Care sales tax on the November Ballot. I am
not one that loves to give my money away but I do
know that if I or anyone of my loved ones has a heart
attack I want the ambulance there in 5 minutes not 5
hours.
We were Blessed by God that we elected the right
people in time to straighten out the hospital mess
made by the county commission back in the early
90's. Remember it was not this commission that
signed a bad contract with that company and we (the
citizens), did not do our job back in the late 80.s and
early 90's in watching what those commissioners did
back then.
We must pay for the Good Medical Services we
want to receive and we must also remember that
people in medicine can work anywhere and don't
have to drive to this county for low pay. Remember
that gas costs them, too. So for our own safety we
must vote for the half cent sales tax and that money
will stay in this county. And once we get 'good
medical care in Gadsden County we must also
monitor it to make sure poor contracting doesn't
happen again.
The half cent sales tax is paid by everyone when
we buy from stores. This tax is not like the property
tax that you pay when you own land because renters
and tourists don't pay property taxes in this county.
This is how the half cent sales tax will work. If you
buy a hair comb from the store:
NOW: Cost $2.00 + tax .14= $2.14
With Half Cent Sales Tax:
Cost $2.00 + tax .15= $2.15

In order to get good health care who cares if we
pay an extra one (1) penny for every $2.00 we all
spend on taxable items. When your life is on the line
what is more important your life or one penny?
We need to vote for Amendment 6 that will
increase senior citizens homestead exemption from
$25,000 to $50,000.
I am asking all pastors in this county to please help
support the Half Cent Sales Tax because God wants
his people taken care of also.
Thank you for your support and encouragement.
Pastor John Battles 442-4684

1 amendment

I'm all for
I'm not a big believer in our
state's constitutional amendment
process. To protect ourselves from
whims, fads and not-so-well-
thought-out efforts to improve our
lives the framers of our nation's
constitution made it difficult to
change the document. They wisely
put the judiciary in a position to "re-
invent" the constitution
incrementally so that it never
became outdated. Their decisions
tell us, in the context of "today"
what the document
means. / e
That's change
enough for me. We
don't need
anarchists, people
with very good
intentions or special
interest groups
playing political
games with the document that rules
our government. It's too easy in
Florida to get an initiative on the
ballot. It's too easy to word it so that
voters either don't understand its
implications or are just plain
deceived.
For that reason, I'm against nearly
every initiative for constitutional
change that comes on election day.
I believe just as strongly, however,
that there are always exceptions.
Amendment 8 is an exception with
a "capitol (pun intended) E". I think
this amendment is needed because
all it does is restore something I
always believed our constitution
guaranteed us in the first place, the
right to own property...not just the
right to own it until some developer
wants it.
Carol Saviak, executive director of
The Coalition for Property Rights
gives us this overview:
Earlier this year, the Florida
Legislature wisely took action
following the U.S. Supreme Court's
controversial 5-4 split decision in
the Kelo v. New London eminent
domain case. In this case the court
ruled the City of New London,
Connecticut could lawfully use its
power of eminent domain to seize
the homes of Susette Kelo and
several neighbors, not for a specific
public "use" such as a road or
school as provided in our
Constitution's Fifth Amendment,
but for the public "purpose" of
economic development.
In response to this decision
lawmakers forged a two-track
legislative solution designed to
reverse Kelo in Florida and
effectively end this form of eminent
domain abuse in our state.
First, the legislature enacted
changes in the state statutes
governing the use of eminent
domain to provide immediate
protections for Florida property
owners. These statutory reforms
were signed into law by Governor
Jeb Bush in May and prohibit the
taking of property under the guise of
blight or slum eradication and
prevent government from selling or
transferring properties taken through
eminent domain for a period of 10
years. These protections are now the
law of the land in Florida and are
considered the strongest post-Kelo
reforms in the nation.
However, legislative leaders also
saw a need to create a second long-
termi layer of protection. They
understood without any safeguard in
our state constitution, at any time a
future legislature might meet,
Florida land owners could lose the
hard-won property rights recently
restored.
The legislature proposed
Amendment 8 which will require a
three-fifths supermajority vote of
both houses of the Florida
Legislature to make changes to the
legislation governing the transfer of
properties taken through eminent
domain.
Any Floridian who believes in the
sanctity of private property
ownership and that government's
power of eminent domain should be
limited to true public uses should
strongly support Amendment 8.
Amendment 8 will provide a


necessary and long-term safeguard
against eminent domain abuse in
our State and prevent future
legislatures from easily amending or
revoking the powerful limitations
placed on government's eminent
domain power earlier this year.

Juveniles charged in burglary


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

Two Havana juveniles, ages 16 and 17, were
arrested Wednesday afternoon and charged with
burglary and petit theft following a residential
burglary on B & M Lane. They were released to
their parents.
It all started around 2:30 p.m. when the home-
owner arrived home with two family members and
spotted a white Isuzu Rodeo leaving her home.
She got a good description of the vehicle as it
turned onto Highway 27, north towards Decatur


County, GA. and gave it to deputies.
Local authorities notified the Decatur County
Sheriff's Office. Shortly afterwards, the Decatur
Sheriff's Office received a telephone call from a
local gas station that two men drove off without
paying. Back in Florida, the two were spotted by
Deputy Paul McMichael who apprehended them
after a short foot chase. Both were arrested and the
SUV, which belonged to the mother of one of the
boys, was impounded.
Inv. Ulysses Jenkins of the GCSO said the
homeowner was missing a weed eater and a
DVD player.

that I am not one in a mil-
lion. I am not even one in a
hundred. More women than
you realize have had to deal
with some type of breast can-
cer. It may have been your
aunt who had a cancerous cyst
removed, or my friend at the
telephone company who brave-
ly went through chemotherapy,
or maybe your mom had a
lumpectomy because they
found a mass.
On August 4th I had a com-
plete mastectomy of my left
breast. Yes, the cancer was in
its early stages, but it was
widely disbursed, so to get it all
they had to take it all. I under-
went reconstructive surgery at
the same time, which increased
my recovery time. Yes, it was
worth it, but it hides what I
have been through. Now it is
time to come out of hiding and
shout it out loud. Roxanne
Johnson is a cancer survivor,
not its victim. I survived
because it was detected early.
My wish is for all women to
get mammograms early and
often.
The American Cancer
Society has lots of information
on all types of cancer and pro-
grams to provide services if
you need treatment. The
Department of Health has a
Breast and Cervical Cancer
screening program if you don't
have insurance. All women
need to get screened when they
reach age 40 or earlier if there
is a family history. Women
spend so much time taking care
of others that we sometimes
fail to take care of ourselves.

"At first he was screaming and
then he stopped and he wasn't
breathing when I got him outisde,
so I just started CPR on him and
he started breathing again," she
said.
"I was scared but I thought
about what (CPR) they had
taught us at school and what I
had seen on television said
Alfreda, who is a sixth grade
student at Chattahoochee
Elementary School.
Robert Lewis, school principal,
said students at the school also
participate in the Red Cross fire
drill using the Fire House where
they are taught how to escape a
burning building. He wasn't
surprised by Alfreda's courage.
"Alfreda has a lot of initiative,
she goes out of her way to help
others and she is a very
mannerable and polite student,"
Lewis said.
"I'm so proud of her, she got all
of us out. We lost everything, but
thank God we are all safe and she
is the reason," said Alfreda's
mother, 36-year-old Marranda
Thomas. "We didn't have time to
save anything, not even my
mother's social security and
medical papers," Thomas said.
In addition to her mother,
grandmother and brother,
Alfreda's aunt and and two
young cousins also lived there.
The mobile home that the
family of eight rented was burned
to the ground. They had no
insurance. Everything, except the
clothes on their backs, went up in
smoke. The Red Cross has found
housing for the family at a local
motel through Friday and has
furnished them with clothing and
food.
"We need everything, first of all
we need a place to live" said
Alfreda's 66-year-old
grandmother, Iridine Thomas.
Thomas said when she rounded
the corner coming home from
church she knew it was her house
when she saw. all of the fire
trucks. "I just prayed to God that
everyone was alright," she said.
Marrranda Thomas is in the
process of setting up an account
at Premier Bank if anyone wants
to make donations. Checks can
be made payable to Marranda
Thomas and mailed to Premier
Bank, P.O. Box 589, Quincy, FL
32353.
The family could use clothing.
Their sizes are:,female, size 18W
and size 9 shoe; female, size 18
and size 11 1/2 shoe; female, size
16 and size 10 1/2 shoe; female
(age 12) size 11/12 slim and' size
8 shoe; female, (age 8) size 7/8
and size 6 1/2 shoe; female (age
5) size 6; and male (age 4) size
4T and size 10 shoe.
To assist the family in other
ways, call the American Red
Cross at 850-878-6080.
The Board of County
Commissioners plans to honor
Alfreda during the November 7
meeting, according to Jon Brown,


Public Information Officer.

up more if possible. "You've
given me encouragement, you've
supported me, but I have found
that the best politics is to do a
good job," he said.
Sherry VanLandingham,
president of the Gadsden County
Health Council, asked Nelson
how he plans to approach rural
health care. "I have talked with
T.K. Wheterall (Florida State
University President) about the
medical school and about getting
help for more students to attend
medical school in the form of
scholarships. If we can get those
students to come to the rural
areas to practice. We also have a
nursing shortage. We're
importing nurses from other
countries. A good nurse can spot
a problem first," he said. He
pledged to continue working for
better rural health care.
Nelson talked briefly about
Medicare Part.D and called it a
"sell out" for HMOs and drug
companies. The silver lining,
however, is that now customs
will no longer stops senior
citizens from bringing
prescription drugs from Canada.
"The market place (for
prescription drugs) will be re-
made by Wal-Mart. I understand
that Target will follow and so will
Publix," he said.
County commissioner Ed Dixon
wanted to know if the county
should invest in a lobbyist in
Washington to help the county
access federal dollars for large
projects such as a water plant.
"You don't need a lobbyist to talk
to me, just pick up the phone," he
said.
Nelson said that he and
Congressman Allen Boyd have a
great working relationship and
that they have worked together to
get several projects to north
Florida. He also touched briefly
on the issue of payday loans,
where some companies charged
as much as 300 percent interest.
Recently legislation was passed
to prevent those companies from
preying on soldiers and sailors.
"To expand it further would be
another big battle. They are very
strong in Washington. They feel
they ought to be able to charge
what they want to put people in'
hock," he said.
Nationally, Nelson .speculated
that the Democrats might pick up
three or four seats in Florida and,
if that trend continues throughout
the nation as the Democratic
Party hopes, they could have a
majority in the House of
Representatives.
"It won't be so easy in the
Senate. If Harold Ford wins in
Tennessee, we could have the
second African-American in the
senate next year, but that race is
neck-and-neck right now," he
said. There are several other
races that Democrats might win.
Nelson's parting words to the


partisan crowd were that it's
important to vote. "I can't do this
alone," he said.

started, you were spending to
find out what we already knew.
You've spent over 80 some
thousand dollars and now it's
over $100,000," he said. When
commissioners were discussing
the idea of a forensic audit,
Dowdell was the only
'commissioner who opposed the
idea.
"A number of factors
contributed to the excess over the
estimate. The internal control
weaknesses significantly
impacted our staffing and
necessitated significantly more
partner time. In addition, the
condition of the accounting
records and difficulty
encountered in locating
supporting documentation
adversely affected our
engagement efficiency. Further,
the City's accounting staff did not
have the capacity to take on
significant engagement support,"
Ferguson said.
Commissioner Derrick Elias
said it sounded to him as if
Ferguson was blaming the City
for his problems.
"It's not uncommon for auditors
in this process to have cost
overruns. It's not a question in
my mind that he did the work; we
should look for a final product
and compromise," said Bill
Bogan, city manager.
Taylor suggested that the city
make a counter offer of $10,000
to Ferguson. In the end,
commissioners voted to pay
Ferguson the $23,872. 25 he
requested.
In other matters,
commissioners:
*Voted to enter into an
agreement with the Big Bend
Habitat for Humanity to locate
city-owned properties that can
either be donated or purchased to
build homes for low income
citizens.
*Gave approval to execute an
interlocal agreement with the
county for a CBDG infrastructure
grant to provide water, sewer, and
gas on Blue Star Highway west
to the proposed Huddle House,
provided the city's attorney
changes language to be more to
Quincy's benefit.
*City employees will begin
volunteering an hour per, week
with students, for tutoring,.and
mentoring, in local schools.
*Commissioners Elias and Gay
requested a list of employees
who have access to vehicles to
drive to and from their homes (in
and out of the county) to work in
the city.
*Firefighter Stoney Hall was
recognized for 20 years of
service.
*Firefighter James Toole was
recognized for, five years of
service.

Pursuing her dream



Angel Granger's focus shifts from kids' education to hers


by LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor
Angel Granger answers the
door of her Greensboro home
barefoot.
She's easy to like frank but
not nasty, funny and amiable,
ready with a glass of iced tea for
any visitors who might drop by.
Beneath all that is a steely
resolve to finish what she started
more than 30 years ago: Her edu-
cation.
"I had always said once I got
the kids in college I would go
back to school," said Granger, 43.
Now all three are going to col-
lege at the same time sons Cole,
22, and Cody, 18, at Florida State
University and she to Tallahassee
Community College.
"College for me was not an
option as a kid," she recalls. "I
grew up on the farm and it just
wasn't discussed. I dropped out
of school when I was a junior at
Greensboro High School."
*i A straight-A student in high
school, Granger left school to
earn a general equivalency diplo-
ma and take a job as a secretary.
A year later, she got married and
moved to Tallahassee. She and
her husband Anthony moved
back to Greensboro in 1985 and
bought a 20-acre farm from
Granger's father, who died in
1994.
"I hunted here when I was a
kid shot my first deer out back,"
she said. "My grandfather was a
tobacco farmer he had about
1,000 acres around here. Now
some's been sold, some went to
family."
Her father was a farmer as
well, raising cattle and tobacco
and working as a barber in
Greensboro's old train depot. He
also was a school bus driver. His
disastrous investment in soybean
cultivation cost him everything,
Granger said.
"Dad died from an aneurysm
after open-heart surgery. He had a
hard life he lost everything he
had farming and I just felt he
made a lot of wrong decisions,"
she said. "After I finish school, I
want to serve as an agricultural
liaison between farmers and
information, go out to their farms
and talk to them about what their
problems are and what the reme-
dies are. I just feel like it's some-
thing I need to do."
Granger is no stranger to the
agricultural world she keeps
horses, chickens, goats and dogs
at her farm and has 20 head of
Angus cattle pasturing on her
mother's farm.
She and her husband lived in a
dcoublewide for 18 years, building
a new home on their property in
2000..
"I did all the painting and all
he wallpapering," she said. "I
painted everything that's here -


If you're a safe driver, you should pay less.

Hostage 'drama' plays out in courthouse Letters


Drill takes local

officials through

violent scenario

by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

This is the scenario: a man is
summoned to court in a domes-
tic violence case. During the
proceedings he becomes
enraged, pulls out a gun and
shoots the judge (wounding her)
and his wife's attorney (killing
her).
He then takes two juveniles
hostage and barricades himself
and the children on the second
floor of the courthouse.
With not enough manpower
to handle the situation, Leon
County Sheriff's Office is called
for backup.
Without hesitation, they
immediately sent 30 officers,
including the SWAT Team and a
hostage negotiations team with
mobile communications unit, a
mobile command center, and a
bomb robot.
It all played out Friday after-
noon in and around the Gadsden
County Courthouse.
It was a massive undertaking,
planned by Grant Slayden, court
administrator of the Second
Judicial Circuit, and executed
by the Gadsden and Leon
County Sheriffs' offices, the
Quincy Police Department, the
Quincy Fire Department, the
Florida Highway Patrol, the
American Red Cross, Gadsden
EMS, and the Second Judicial
Circuit Court staff.
"Everyone did an outstand-
ing job. There was a great deal
of professionalism. It was a
great multi-agency, multi-coun-
ty exercise," Slayden told the
group of nearly 100 participants
following the five-hour exer-
cise.
Around 1 p.m., red and yel-
low "do not cross" police tape
was wrapped around the outside
perimeter of courthouse.
Merchants around the square
had been informed earlier that
the exercise was going to take
place and that they could expect
activity during the afternoon.
"This is going to be kind of
exciting," said Mark Clark at
Treasure's Restaurant.
The exercise was on a strict
timetable but "in real life it
would go a lot faster," said Capt.
Leroy Johnson of the Leon
County Special Operations Unit.
He said the excerise was ben-
eficial to both counties because
it afforded them the opportunity
to train for what coud be a disas-
ter and it gave the two depart-
ments the opportunity to work
together and to get to know each
other.
"These are two brother agen-
cies that are working together.
This is a relationship that is
sheriff-to-sheriff," Johnson said.
During the debriefing
excerise the group discussed
what could have been better.
LeVon Jackson, coordinator
from the Gadsden County
Sheriff's Office, said he felt
everyone did an outstanding job
in terms of safety.
Safety monitors observed
every aspect of the exercise to
make sure there were no acci-
dents. Before entering the exer-
cise zone, each individual was
checked for weapons. Those
authorized to carry weapons
were checked to make sure all
weapons were clear (no ammu-
nition in the chamber).

a pre-determined meeting place
and a way to account for all
employees. Also a roster of
employees should be developed
to determine who works in the
courthouse.
Another problem encoun-
tered was the length of time it
took EMS to get to the victims.
The "injured" judge, played by
Judge Nikki Clark, was placed
on hold twice after calling 911.
However, the panic button on
the telephone on the courtroom
operated without flaw and the
Quincy Police Department was
summoned immediately.
The four teams of snipers
placed on the roofs around the
square had no problems, nor did
the SWAT Team or the hostage
negotiators. "Overall, I thought
it went well," said Gene Revell,
SWAT Team Commander.
The exercise was the first of
its kind in the area and Slayden
says he hopes to repeat the exer-
cise early next year in Leon
County and late next year iri
Wakulla County. "I want to
thank Sheriff Morris Young for
allowing us to do the first one in
Gadsden County," Slayden said.

Kirkland's family which
happens to be my family. I think
that condolence should be
extended to the Kirkland's family,
because Demetrius is my first
cousin and his extraction from
society is going to substantially
affect our family.
I have read articles concerning
this accident, and it is unfair for
people to characterize Demetrius
as a brutal murderer instead of a
person who had caused a fatal
accident. There was no
allegations that Demetrius had
the predisposition to cause harm
to anybody, so why is he being
treated like a cold-blooded
murderer? Unfortunately, he will
have to live with the
consequences derived from this
incident for the rest of his life,
because Sheriff Morris and others
has vowed that he will pay dearly.
Therefore, this child is being
treated as an adult to face the rest
of his life in prison.
Another thing, why should a
professional like Officer Ronnie
Williams/EGHS assistant
principal persist on making
contact with a reluctant juvenile
in a crowded area, since juveniles
usually panic under such
circumstances.
Well, my concern is that I have
been in prison 11 years, and I'm
afraid that I will never see
Demetrius again, so stop

The ball's in our
court
Dear editor:
After reading your
"Contemplations" piece in the
paper last week, I was reminded
of the words my pastor spoke in
that Sunday's service. He asked,
"When is the church going to
stop being reactive and be
proactive?"
So many times when senseless
violence happens, especially to
our young, we want to rush and
have a prayer vigil. That's a
wonderful thing for the grieving
families, but are we as vigilant
before the fact? Are we, as
members of the Body of Christ,
doing what we are called to do
when it comes to our children?
We may have youth Sundays,
vacation bible schools, and other
youth-oriented programs, but


What does that do for our children
on a day-to-day basis?
Raising a child is a hard job that
requires time, effort and
consistency, three things the
Body of Christ in Gadsden
County needs to be willing to
commit to. Undoubtedly, there
are some individuals who do
reach past their comfort zones to
really take the time to mentor a
child, but it's not happening often
enough. It's difficult to help
someone else's child, especially
when we have children of our
own; but, don't we pray that God
will speak to someone to do the
same for our own sons,
daughters, nieces and nephews
when they don't want to listen to
us?
Working at an inner-city school
in Miami, I have seen a lot, too
many, of my students buried to
gang violence and turf wars. I
thought it would be easier in'
Quincy, but Kimberly Walker's.
death was like a slap in the face.
Did I talk to her enough; did I get
involved enough, what els&
should I have done? Maybe there
was nothing else I could have
done, but maybe there was, and I,
dropped the ball. Is there
someone out there asking
themselves those same questions
about Mr. Kirkland, the young
man apparently responsible for
Crystal Riley's death?
Programs and initiatives are
helpful and have their place, but
the only way to save and protect
our children is with the love and
grace of God, guidance from
strong, committed, integrity-filled
people of Christ, and the
whisperings of the Holy Spirit.
The ball's in our court. What
are we going to do with it?

Wakulla gets by East Gadsden 21-6


District Ch

by Susie Morris
The Munroe Lady Cats volleyball team responded
well to a challenge by their coaches, Mike Dolan and
Brittany O'Neil, to repeat as District Champs for the
third straight year. The team threw off a sluggish start
against an improved Carrabelle team and won-the first
round of the District 1-A on Tuesday in Tallahassee at
John Paul II. They then defeated the number one seed,
John Paul II, in an exciting five game match on
Thursday for the championship.
The Carrabelle match found the Lady Cats down
after one game, losing 25-21 to the upset minded
Lady Panthers. The team then rallied to take the next
three games 25-22, 25-8 and 25-23. A spark for the
team in game two came in the form of 8th grader

Kristin Allen. The little setter ignited the team offense
throughout the next three games and gave the players

game with nine assists. Most of those sets from Allen
and Ivie Thomas went to Jill Purvis who finished with
9 kills. On defense, freshman Spenser Morris tallied
seven digs. Crystal Wade served big finishing with
six aces. Wade and Purvis also combined for seven
blocks at the net.
The Carrabelle win set up a showdown between
the 2005 final two, Munroe and John Paul II. Last
year Munroe rallied from being down 22-15 in the
third game and having lost the first two games, to

^PREMIER BANK


by Joe Ferolito
It was a big district contest for both
teams. It looked like it would start in a big
way for East Gadsden. The Jaguars took the
opening kick-off and in three plays had the
football inside the Wakulla ten-yard line.
Two plays later they were at the War Eagle
two. A fumbled pitch out then lost East
Gadsden 21 yards making them settle for a
field goal try. That was missed and Wakulla
used the emphasis to go on and take a 21-6
win at Jaguar Field Friday night.
After the missed field goal the War
Eagles drove 80 yards to put the first points
on' the scoreboard when quarterback Cory
Eddinger tossed a 19-yard scoring pass to
Dion Bryant. That with Troy Walker's p.a.t.
kick put Wakulla up 7-0.
Before the quarter ended Bryant struck
again. After a long pass from Micah Brown
to Antwon Frost got ,East Gadsden to the
Eagle 32, Bryant step in front of a receiver
and returned an interception 84-yards for
another score making it 13-0, before Xavier
Blocker ran in a 2-point conversion upping it
to 15-0, a score that made it to the half.
Wakulla came out in the third quarter
and had an 11 play scoring drive that used up


over 5 minutes. Kend'ell Gavin got the score
on a 2-yard plunge and it was 22-0.
That ended the Eagle scoring. East
Gadsden got on the board in the fourth quar-
ter when Darius Jackson sprinted 50-yards on.
a run that set up a 10-yard scoring scamper by
Jackson.
That came early in the quarter and gave
the Jaguars a spark which they used to hold
Wakulla on the Eagles next series. A 19-yard
pass from Jamaica Moore to Ricky Reed got
East Gadsden good field position before an
interception by the Wakulla's Tyrell Gavin
ended that movement.
Jackson had another big night rushing
for East Gadsden getting 131 yards in 11 car-
ries. Brown passed for 94 and Frost had 80
yards in receptions.
Blocker had- 102 yards rushing for
Wakulla whose record went to 3-1 in the dis-
trict. They will face Bay Thursday night in
Panama City in a game that will decide a
play-off berth.
East Gadsden is 2-2 in the district and
will face 4-0 district champion Godby
Thursday at 7:30 pm in Tallahassee's Gene
Cox Stadium.
East Gadsden's record is 5-3 overall.

Seahawks 28, Bobcats 13

by Susie Morris
South Walton's Kenzie Clemmons and Billy Burnett
keyed on Munroe's weakened defense and allowed the
Seahawks strong rushing attack to overtake the Bobcats and
defeat Munroe 28-13 on Friday night at Santa Rosa Beach.
Munroe, playing without three starters (Heath' Tolar,
Colby Tyus and Jason Cook) was able to keep the score rel-
atively close. The Bobcats scored their first touchdown
before the half on a 45 yard pass play from Clay White to
Dontavius Johnson. The PAT was missed and South
Walton held a 21-6 halftime lead.
The Bobcats and the Seahawks traded touchdowns in the
second half. Munroe scored in the third quarter on a quar-
terback keeper by senior Clay White. Bill Hackney kicked
the point after for the Bobcats 13th point.
Coach Adam Reep said, "They were a big, strong team.
I thought we played them as tough as we could without the
services of three of our top three players. Tolar is out for
the season and Cook will miss one more game. Hopefully,
Aucilla Christian will defeat John Paul II on Friday and we
will be in the playoff picture no matter what happens in our
game with FAMU."
The Bobcats (3-5) host FAMU-DRS(4-4) Friday night at
7:30 in a district contest. If the Bobcats could upset the
Class A District 2 number one team, FAMU, and if Aucilla
defeats John Paul II Friday night, then the Bobcats win their
first district championship in six years. If Munroe loses
but Aucilla still wins, the Bobcats will be tied with Aucilla
and John Paul II for a second place finish and playoff spot.
Those three teams would then meet on October 30 for a
Kansas tie-breaker to determine the number two spot.


Jamal Williams then broke loose

RFM Lady Cats win 3rd








The Gadsden County Times October 26,2006 11


Lady Cats from page 10

win the district champi-
onship. This year the team had
every reason to be pessimistic.
John Paul II defeated the Lady
Cats twice during the regular
season with each contest going
only the minimum three games.
The Lady Cats, however,
jumped on John Paul quickly in
game one winning 25-20.
John Paul then responded well
taking the next game easily 25-
9. The Lady Cats chose not to
lie down; however, and emerged
from a close game three victori-
ous 25-23.
Game four was a knock-
down dragout contest that saw
six lead changes in the final four
points. Munroe blew an oppor-
tunity to win both the game and
the district championship with a
24-23 lead. An errant serve
gave the ball back to John Paul
who tied it up at 24. An errant
serve on a questionable substi-
tute by John Paul at the serve
position gave the Lady Cats the
ball again and a 25-24 lead. A
misplayed ball at the net
however, tied the game again at
25 with John Paul leading. A
hard hit by John Paul gave them
a 26-25 lead and one more point
would .give them the necessary
two point difference and the
win. Munroe responded to the
pressure and gained back the tie
at 26. John Paul then went on to
win the next two points in pres-
sure-ridden rallies before
emerging with a 28-26 win.
On to Game 5...
The final game saw John
Paul jump out to a 5-2 lead.
The Lady Cats battled back and
surged ahead 12-8. A few long
volleys later, Munroe held a
slim 14-12 lead with the serve.
Once again a bad serve gave
John Paul a valuable point. John
Paul served with Munroe need-
ing one final point. A small vol-
ley ensued and Jill Purvis then
put away a floater at the net for
Munroe 15th point and the
District Championship.
For the match, Mallary
Taylor recorded eight kills and
13 assists while Ivie Thomas
added seven kills and 16 assists.
Crystal Wade had 15 digs and
four aces and Julia Bates had 13
digs, five aces and three blocks
for Munroe (10-15).
Patricia Young posted 24

Moses Project delivering healthy Gadsden County babies


By Leslie Roberts
News Editor
A few months ago, the Moses
Project was born in Gadsden
County to provide a safe sleep-
ing place to our babies born in
Gadsden County when a
Tallahassee volunteer contacted
the Healthy Start Coalition
about whether there was a need
for a safe sleeping space for
infants in Gadsden County.
Infant deaths in Gadsden
County have steadily increased
in 2006. It is uncertain as to how
many were attributable to co-
sleeping; however, some of the
infant deaths were a result of co-
sleeping (infants sleeping in
unsafe spaces with others.)
"We have been very fortunate
to have the partnership of many
caring people to assemble our
Moses Bassinets with the loving
labor of volunteers at the
Gadsden Senior Center, the
Killearn Quilters, and the female
inmates at the Gadsden
Correctional Institution who
make the mattress pads for the
baskets and Sheila Callahan and
Judie Chester (Coalition
Volunteers)," according to Kelly
Parker, Healthy Start Coalition,
Inc., executive director.
In just a few short months,
many generous donors have
helped make the Moses Project
a reality: Zeta Tau Chapter

care coordinator.
Ms. Williams designed an
educational training component
on Safe Sleeping that each
recipient receives along with the


basket. According to Ms.
Williams, the recipients were
very happy to receive the
bassinets.
If you would like to be a part
of this project or for more infor-
mation on the Moses Project,
please contact Healthy Start

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.

.' 'i ;.)l-, J ..I a -

Halloween is observed annually on October itst ,ihr parties co.slumes and lots of candy.
Children dress up in costumes and masks, which can be anything from a friendly ghost to a J --
fairy princess, or a scary monster. In these costumes, they go from house to house in their
neighbor, "Trick or Treating", where adults pass out candy to them.
The origin of the Halloween holiday comes from the ancient Catholic holiday of "All Saints V
Day". This was not a scary holiday at all, but more like an agricultural festival. Over time, Q
the practice of children dressing up became part of the holiday. November 1st, is the J A
annually date of All Saints Day, which celebrates all the Catholic Saints in heaven. The day V
was origitall,' known as "All Hallow Day". This was because another word for saint in
ancient times was "hallow". The night before the popular holiday was called "All Hallows N
Eve", and over time the name "Halloween" was given to October 31st, and was created into B
a popular children's nolday H
In the United States, children look forward to customs like carving pumpkins with faces G
and lighting them with candles. This is called a "jack-o-lantem" and is usually placed on the
front porch of their home. The custom of carving the jack-o-lantem began in Ireland and R
Scotland, centuries ago. The Irish used turnips as their "Jack Lanterns", but when the C
immigrants from these countries came to America, the realized that pumpkins were moreU U
plentiful, and thus they used them instead. This is how the tradition of pumpkin carving I
began in the United States.
Halloween is a great holiday for both kids and adults! A fun time for all can be had, but S
always emerber safety rules. Make sure that you always go trick-or-treating with a group t K
of friends supervised by an adult. Have your parents check what day the community is
having trick-or-treating, as it does not always fall on the 31st. Never go to houses that are Q
not lit up, and make sure to watch for cars when talking in the streets. Don't cut across N
. ard;, and take a flashlight with you. Dress warm under your costumes f it is cold outside,
and have an adult check your treats before you eat them. Have a safe Halloween! C

Carr, a representative from
the Ohio Job Corps branch
office, was the guest speaker..
She challenged students to stay
in school until they have com-
pleted their 12th grade educa-
tion. Then as an alternative to
attending college, moving on to
work, and/or joining the mili-
tary, to seek the opportunities
that Job Corps has to offer. She
also informed students that Job
Corps was a free job training
and education program that
helped young men and women
to get better jobs, make more
money and take control of their
lives.
At Job Corps, students could
expect to learn career skills,
earn a high school diploma or
GED, and find good paying jobs
in the areas of health occupa-
tions, construction, retail sales,
security, the network cable
industry, culinary arts, automo-
tive services, etc.

sions counselor for Job Corps

Teen Read Week at Havana Middle


With so many entertainment
options and educational
demands many teenagers feel as
if there isn't any time left to read
for fun or pleasure.
October 15-20 was designed
Teen Reed Week by the
American Library Association
with this year's theme being
"Get Active @ Your Library."
Many librarians and teachers
place additional emphasis on
reading during this week.
Mrs. Knight, librarian/media
specialist at Havana Middle,
was no exception. She and her
students read and discussed the
"7 Habits of Highly Effective
Teen Readers," a document


released by the American
Library Association.
This document states the fol-
lowing habits: Habit 1: Be pro-
active; Habit 2: Begin with the
end in mind; Habit 3: Put first
things first; Habit 4: Think win-
win; Habit 5: Seek first to
understand then to be undeer-
stood; Habit 6: Synergize; and
Habit 7: Sharpen the saw.
The students were asked to
rate themselves on the habits to
determine if they were effective
teen readers. Also, the students
were encouraged to read more
for fun because reading for the
fun of it will have a positive
effect on their lives forever.


GEMS celebrates Grandparents' Day


Gadsden Elementary Magnet
School hosted their annual
Grandparents' Day Celebration,
along with a Health Fair on
Sept. 22, from 9 AM to 1 PM.
According to Angela Suber, par-
ent liaison, the Luncheon and
Health Fair was a huge success.
The theme of this year's

Luau". The grandparents
enjoyed a delicious lunch of
Fried and Baked Chicken with
all the trimmings. We also had
special activities that included:

Sampling, Free Health


Screenings, Fitness Activities
and Door Prizes.
Eating healthy foods and
maintaining an active lifestyle
are vital for children's health
and reduce their risk of serious
long-term health problems, such
as obesity, asthma, and diabetes.
GEMS Faculty and Staff would
like to send a special thanks to
Eileen Wade, Special Area
Teacher and School Health
Coordinator for organizing the
Health Fair. Thanks to all
