Quincy,

county look


for common

ground

by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

In an effort to move forward and in the spirit
of cooperation, representatives from the City of
Quincy and the Board of County
Commissioners decided to hold a series of
meetings to determine which issues they agreed
on and which ones they need to work on to find
common ground.
Those participating in the bi-monthly
meetings are County Manager Marion Brown
and County Commission Chairman Ed Dixon
and Quincy City Manager Bill Bogan and City
Commissioner Keith Dowdell.
" 'What we're doing is a giant step toward
getting things done. It won't be so easy. It it our
task to sell it to our board," said Dowdell and
Dixon agreed.
"Once we get this started we all have to come
together, Quincy, Chattahoochee, Gretna,
Midway, Greensboro, and Havana. Gadsden
County is going to have to do for Gadsden
County," he said.
The first meeting, held two weeks ago, was
mainly to set the agenda. During the second
meeting both sides agreed on some pertinent
points.
*Fire Service Agreement:
The county will now pay the city an additional
$138,000 for fire protection. The City of Quincy
is the first responder to fires in the county's
unincoprorated areas. Brown said the county
will also commission a study by Government
Service Group to study the true cost of fire
service. The study will look at the way fire
service is delivered.
"We really want to look at the way things are
and how we want them to be," Dixon said. All
agreed that the City of Quincy can no longer be
responsible for Midway as a first responder. As
of August, the city had responded to more than
50 calls for service from Midway. Bogan said
that there were no calls from Midway in
October.
"I want to make sure that the agreement we
have with the county does not include Midway.
It would be better if we could just sat around a
table; like we're doing now, and came an
agreement with Midway," Dowdell said. The

Juvenile gangs

on rise here,

deputy says

by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
Gadsden County has come into the 21st Century in
many ways and some are not so good. Juvenile gangs
that were once only associated with large cities have
made their way here.
"Gang activity is on the rise and it's mainly among
juveniles," said Gadsden County Deputy Janice
McPhaul, the county's gang specialist. For some
gangs, she said, the prime age for initiation is 9,
especially among the Hispanics. "They see their older
siblings involved and they want to be a part of that,"
McPhaul said.
She estimates that there are between seven and eight
known gangs in the county, but hesitates to guess at
the number of juveniles and young adults involved.
Some boast involvement with national gangs like the
"Bloods" and "Crips" of West Coast and Midwest
fame. There are also indications that "SRU 13," a
mainly Hispanic gang, may have members here too.

QPD asks help in

locating Bryant

home shooters

by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
Quincy Police are looking for help in
finding those responsible for shooting into the
home of James and Cynthia Bryant on Circle
Drive. They are the parents of Robert Bryant,
the man who allegedly shot and killed
Cedrick Parks early last Thursday evening at
Parkviewv Manor Apartments, west of Quincy.
"We're asking anyone who saw or heard
something to call us," said Inv. Delwyn Hall
of the Quincy Police Department. He said no
one was at home at the time of the shooting.
"I think if someone had been at home, they
may have been injured," Hall said.
Police officers spent Friday morning
collecting bullets from inside the home, but
were unable to gather any leads. "There are
no suspects at this time, but I'm sure that
someone knows something and help us bring
closure to this crime," he said.
Hall said the shooting occurred around 10
p.m. "The Bryant family was still at the
Sheriff's Office when the incident occurred.
When they got back home they called us to
make a report," Hall said.
If anyone has information, they are asked to
call Inv. Hall at 627-7111.

Contemplation.



Football passion turns ugly


I like football as well as the next
person I suppose. It's a game that, if
you can concentrate on it for two
hours, is quite entertaining. There are
strategies, intricate pass patterns,
running plays, and more.
It's a rough and tumble sport that's
mostly enjoyed by men, although more
and more women are learning to like it,
too. That may be due, in part, to the
fact that these women want to share
their mate's passion for the sport.
For some that passion has turned into
something ugly.
What I've noticed about football for
the past few years is a rather disturbing
pattern of intensity by fans. There are
people who actually get angry about
football at all levels.
It got scary last week when the father
of a seven-year-old pulled a gun and
threatened a coach because his son
wasn't getting "enough playing time."
Even before that happened, a relative
of the same man became involved in
an altercation with an official.
Last year, Quincy police were called
out following a little league football
game in Quincy because a crowd
became unruly. As grownups argued,
and I believe someone was either hit or
pushed, the children watched the
display.
I haven't heard of any such incidents
this year and I hope nothing that
disturbing ever happens again. In some
cities, parents must sign a contract
promising not to start trouble.


But the fact is, adults are not setting a
good example for children when it
comes to sports. Some of the most
dedicated volunteers have stopped
coaching because the parents want to
tell the coach how to coach as in the
case of the parent with the weapon last
week. Parents are involved.
When little kids play, it's hard to find
a place to park near some of these
football fields. But you'll have no
trouble getting front door parking or a
front row seat when schools hold open
house or parents night.
Folks who can't get a ride anywhere
else have no problem getting to a little
league football game, even if it is
across town or across state. It's called
priorities.'
At the high school level, parents have
been known to ask for the firing or
resignation of coaches because they
want their sons to have more time on
the playing field.
I have listened as parents make
remarks (quite loudly and full of
expletives) about coaches and officials
when things don't go their way. I hear,
and I don't know it for a fact, that it's
not uncommon for a round of late
night phone calls between parents after
a team loses a game.
Of course, I've never heard of such a
thing when it comes to English,
mathematics or any of the academics.
One year, teachers at one local high
school offered students extra credits if

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. '


1968 was a bad year, but I had

hope; the Cards were still in it!


October of 1968 was not a banner month
for me. I had'quit my summer job at the
world famous Grand Ole Opry to go back
to college. I had, in effect, traded Loretta
Lynn, Stonewall Jackson and Marty
Robbins for Professor Abbott C. Martin
and Dr. Charles Binnicker. And Cub fans
thought Lou Brock for Ernie Brogilo was a
bad deal!
My girl friend had left me. Ole Duke
died. I didn't have any money. I was taking
an advance math course on finite numbers.
It was cold. And the University of the
South, located' on a wind swept plateau in
southeastern Tennessee, looks better in the
recruiting brochures than it does when you
are racing the ever present dogs to an eight
o'clock class through the rain, sleet and
snow.
You'd think a body would just give up
and go home. But hope springs eternal! My
St. Louis Cardinals were in the World
Series that year. Finally, something to live
for! I could take heart in Bob Gibson,
Orlando Cepeda, Curt Flood, Tim
McCarver and the aforementioned Brock.
Real ball players, all of them! And, aside
from Al Kaline, I wasn't too worried about
the misfits and degenerates taking the field
for the Detroit Tigers.
With the first pitch on that clear crisp
Wednesday, October 2nd afternoon, I was
ready for some good news. Bob Gibson
delivered. As always! He shut the Tigers
out and surrendered, if my memory serves
me correctly, only 5 hits. I know he struck
out 17 batters that day to set a new World
Series record. Brock homered.
This was going to be easy!
I listened to the game on John Stewart's
car radio kinda in between Biology lab and
football practice. It was the first bright
moment in over a month for me. The food
at Gailor Hall that evening actually had
some taste. I bounced back to my room and
read John Milton and conjugated a few
Latin verbs. Maybe life wasn't as bad as I
had been thinking.....
Some fat left-hander named Mickey
Lolich beat us the next day. Denny McLain
was the Tigers big 30 game winner. He
was supposed to be the man! We'd racked
him the day before. And we could only
scrounge up one lousy run against this


Lolich guy!
I was a little worried. And thoughts of
school and lost loves and mid-term exams
and Professors Martin's disapproving stare
began to dance though my head.....but I had
hope, the Cards were still in it!
Ray Washburn pitched acceptably in the
Saturday game in Detroit and the Cards
won. I pretended to be a Kappa Alpha
because their fraternity had the best
television set on campus. McCarver and
Cepeda hit home runs and Roger Maris
made a nice running catch in right field.
We won the next day behind Gibson and
took a commanding 3 games to 1 lead in
the series. If I smoked or had any money at
all-I would have been passing out
victory cigars. This thing was over!
Game 5 was a tough one. We brought in
Joe Hoerner with a couple of runners on in
the seventh and he didn't get anybody out!
He promptly gave up a walk and three hits
and that was the ballgame. The Lolich guy
beat us again. I knew it wasn't going to be
our day when Jose Feliciano butchered the
National Anthem.
Game 6 was a disaster. The Tigers scored
early and often. We used three different
pitchers in the third inning alone. They
drilled us 13 to 1.
I was a tad anxious but still hopeful. Only
three other teams in history had ever been
up 3 games to 1 and lost the World Series.
And the Cards had Bob Gibson pitching
the final game. I'd put my money on Gibby
anytime, anyplace, under any
circumstances.....
Except for Thursday afternoon, October
10, 1968. Flood let a ball he should have
caught get over his head in center and we
couldn't recover. When McCarver popped
up to Bill Freehan for the final out my
heart took a dip from which it could never
recover. It was as if life was unraveling
right before my eyes. That oversized
left-hander had beaten us again!
. You just can't lose like that. Not my
Cardinals. Not when they are all I have!
The only light in an ever tightening sea of
darkness....
I sat in stone silence for three weeks.
Lost, lonely, forsaken and desolate moved
to new levels in my brief existence. Surely

A heart-stopping Halloween


This Halloween, I marked my second
anniversary of being undead.
It's a nice feeling, but I had to go
through a World of Hurt to remain that
way.
Halloween 2004, my husband and I
took our 2-year-old son to a church
Halloween party. I had been short of
breath for several weeks and had
intermittent chest pain, but chalked it
all up to stress.
That night, as I carried my son across
the church parking lot, a sharp,
stabbing pain in my chest made me set
him down and stop walking. I was
incredibly fatigued felt like I couldn't
take another step.
For several weeks before that, I had
been cursed with a persistent feeling of
impending doom. It was a horrible
feeling that I couldn't shake I went to
my family doctor about that and the
chest pain. She was busy so a nurse
saw me, told me to cut back on
caffeine and try to get some rest.
The feeling continued, so I went to a
counselor. He demonstrated several
deep-breathing techniques, which I
couldn't do anyway because I was
having trouble drawing a deep breath. I
told him about the chest pain, but he
advised against going to the
emergency room it would just mean a
long jaunt in the waiting room, he said,
to discover I was suffering from
anxiety and I'd be "sent home by

condescending ER attendants."
Still, that Halloween the feeling
persisted. After we got home I headed
over to Tallahassee to meet a friend I'd
promised to have dinner with. I was
driving her home and listening to her
talk when the stabbitig pain and
impending doom returned, larger than
life. I told her I had to go, and drove to
the Tallahassee Memorial Hospital
emergency room.
I figured having them tell me it was
all in my head was worth it if they
could do something to make it better.
They did, but it was nowhere near
what I had in mind.
I gave my list of symptoms to an
intake nurse after almost no time in the
waiting room and was taken back to a
.room pretty quickly. Lying on a
hospital bed, a brigade of costumed
nurses came in and checked my blood
pressure, set up an EKG and asked
questions. It was all completely
surreal. I saw ambulance attendants
wheel in a black woman in uniform -
correctional? Law enforcement?
Costume? I'm not sure, but there are
no secrets in the ER and I heard
doctors discuss the fact that she was 38
- my age and had weakness and
numbness on one side of her body
along with a terrific headache.

NAACP: County

response inadequate

To the Editor:

The Gadsden County Branch of the NAACP filed a
formal complaint against the Gadsden County
Commission earlier this year containing many
examples of discrimination and favoritism practiced
by Robert Presnell director of road and bridge and
supported by Arthur Lawson personal director. The
response the NAACP received from the county last
week is inadequate to say the least. The county has
continued practices of misuse of county property,
unfair treatment of employees, questionable actions
of elected officials and many other legal and moral
infractions upon the citizens' trust.
This internal investigation conducted by the county
of its own administrative staf is one of the "fox
watching the hen house". The county can not
realistically expect anyone to believe that the county
would not protect itself when it comes to such
internal matters. Where was law enforcement
involvement in this investigation? The attorney and
his law firm hired by the county's sole job with
respect to the county is to protect the county not the
employees and the citizens. In other words "keep the
county looking good".
The Gadsden County Branch of the NAACP
purpose is to fight for the rights of all people of color
and since all people have color we will help as many
people as humanly possible when it comes to
discrimination and mistreatment of individuals. This
county commission is predominately black, but a
criminal act is just as severe no matter the race of the
perpetrator. There will be further investigations into
this matter by outside entities so that the general
public will know how their government is really
serving them.

Dear Editor:
"I've fallen and I can't get up." Remember that TV

ago. In a late night call, she said she was on the floor
in the kitchen and couldn't get up.
When asked if she had called for help, meaning 9-

When I arrived at her back door she was indeed on

yourself.
If you didn't make it to the
Leaf Theatre for the opening
performance of this season, I
feel sorry for you.
Redeem yourself! The cast is
set... and there are several local
faces in this one...for the next
production. You'll be able to
see lots of local faces on the
stage this time including Jack
Peacock playing the role of
George and Byron Spires as
Mr. Potter in the timeless
holiday classic "A Wonderful
Life."
We at The Gadsden County
Times have the pleasure of
sponsoring "It's A Wonderful
Life" on Dec. 1, 2, 3, 8, 9 and
10. It will be magic
to watch this
holiday classic
come to life! ,
"Calamity
Jane" brings .,
some real six-
shootin' fun to ti ,
the Leaf in
February and March. The
season ends with Mole, Water
Rat, Mr. Toad and Mr. Badger
bringing us Kenneth
Grahame's "Wind in the
Willows" in April.

The opening performance
was "big! The Musical" and it
was laugh-out-loud funny.
Casting was great (wherever
did they find an actual 30-
year-old kid!)
As usual, the only
disappointment was the lack
of more Gadsden County
faces in the Leaf...both on the
stage and in the audience.
Mike Mock returned to the
stage in "big!", and the show
was the first stage appearance
for Havana's Anne Keckler
and most of her family! I
wished then that more of our
musically-talented residents
would participate. I guess I
got my wish with "It's a
Wonderful Life."
And, no, I won't practice
what I preach here. If you'd
ever heard me try to sing
you'd thank me for it. But you
can bet Wendy and I will
occupy two of those seats to
take in that talent.
Join us. You'll be glad you
did.


Talkin' out of

both sides of

my mouth

It's not really a
contradiction, at least in my
book.
Last week I suggested we
should adopt a constitutional
limit on the right of our state
government to take private
property for development.
I feel strongly enough about
that to risk appearing two-
faced when I make my next
recommendation, which is to
adopt a constitutional
amendment that makes such
amendments more difficult.
Vote Yes on Amendment
No.3.
We've had enough Bullet
Train and Save the Hogs
fiascos. These amendments
need to be better thought-out,


especially with a provision
outlining how it's to be paid
for.
A big speed bump in this
process would be a very good
thing for Florida.

Jury awards $4.9 million in death


Dwayne Allen, Sr.

killed when drunk

driver struck cycle

by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

A Gadsden County jury last
Wednesday deliberated a little more
than an hour, after a four-day trial,
before awarding the family of
Dwayne Allen Sr., $4.9 million dol-
lars.


Allen, 27, died May 23, 2003 after
being hit by a drunk driver as he rode
a motorcycle on County Road 157
near Havana.
Anderson was convicted of Driving
Under the Influence and manslaughter
and is now serving time in prison. He
was sentenced to four years.
Allen was thrown from his motor-
cycle after Anderson turned in front of
him and the motorcycle struck the
right side of the pickup truck. He died
of injuries sustained in the crash.
The monetary limit on Anderson's
automobile insurance policy was


$25,000, but State Farm Insurance
Company failed to pay the family. The
Tallahassee law firm of Knowles and
Randolph, acting on behalf of the
family, requested information on the
amount the policy was worth.
"It's what we call bad faith. The
company did not comply with our pol-
icy demand and we had to go to
court," said Dawn Whitehurst, lead
attorney on the case.
Whitehurst explained that last
week's jury verdict now clears the
way for the family to file suit against
State Farm Insurance.


"We're going to go to court fairly
quickly in this case. It means that
State Farm will now be on the hook
for the $4.8 million," she said. Had
the company paid the family the
$25,000 the case probably would not
have wound up in court, according to
Whitehurst.
This was the second attempt to
reach a verdict in this case. Earlier
this year the trial ended in a hung jury
after one juror held out.
Roosevelt Randolph, attorney for
the Allen family, said the trial was
about liability and that the jury under-


stood that.
"We had to convince them that was'
the issue," he said, adding, "the
defense made the claim that our client
had been speeding among other
things."
"It was a matter of a kid, Allen's
12-year-old son, having to grow up
without the guidance, comfort and'
companionship of his father. The
monetary award cannot compare to
the presence of a father. It will ensure
that Mr. Allen's family is provided for
in the future," Randolph said.

Special to the Times
The Gadsden County

Protect People,

Health Hazards Of Using
Tobacco

To protect people, especially
youth, from addiction, disease,
and other health hazards of
using tobacco, the Legislature
shall use some Tobacco
Settlement money annually for.
a comprehensive statewide
tobacco education and preven-
tion program using Centers for
Disease Control best prac-

This amendment requires state

and Prevention Program.
Thereafter, this amount will
increase annually with infla-

"This hasn't had a real negative impact
on the plant, and it won't unless we get a lot
of rain." McKinnon said. "H'lopefully, it will
be fixed within a couple of weeks."
McKinnon also noted several upcoming

Speaking out...
Teresa Hemanes, (right) mother of Kathy Partida, led the candle-
light vigil around the courthouse at the end the 2006 Annual Speak
Out Against Domestic Violence Thursday evening. About 100 peo-
ple attended the program which included inspirational and interpre-
tive dances, poems, a skit, and music. The event was held to honor
those who were killed as a result of domestic violence and to cele-
brate the hundreds of survivors. Partida, who was killed in 2005 by
her husband, was the latest recorded victim of domestic violence in
the county. This year marks the first time there were no deaths
attributed to domestic violence since the Domestic Violence and
Sexual Assault Task Force began keeping track in 1991. Speakers
included Greenboro Chief of Police Marianne Scholer and Haley
Cutler, date rape coordinator.

Godby

Darius Jackson zipped in
form three yards out for a touch-
down mid-way the third quarter.
He followed that with a 2-point
conversion run putting East
Gadsden up 21-14 in their game
with Class 3-A number 1 Godby
last Thursday night in
Tallahassee.
An upset seemed very pos-
sible before the Cougars rallied
for three touchdowns them-
selves on the way to a 35-21 win
that kept Godby unbeaten.
Jackson had 148 scrim-
mage yards and a pair of touch-
downs and Micah Brown passed
for 230 yards and 2 touchdowns
to lead the upset effort.
Godby scored first in the
,game getting a 36-yard touch-
-,"down run from A.J. Graham in
Slihe fiist quarter. Wes Baldwin's
conversion kick made it 7-0.
* The Jaguars tied the game
early in the second quarter when
'Brown connected with Antwon
Frost on a 37 yard touchdown
-pass play. Edwardo Perez
kicked the extra point to tie the
game.
Godby reclaimed the lead
on their next possession when
British Footman's 1-yard scor-
ing run capped a drive. Another


a scare

Baldwin kick made it 14-7.
East Gadsden got another
t.d. late in the quarter when
Brown passed to Jackson for a
47-yard scoring strike. The
extra point was missed and it
was 14-13 Godby at the half.
Jackson scores then put the
Jaguars up for the first time
before the Cougars answered.
First the Cougars tied the game
with a Graham to Willie Downs
11-yard t.d. pass and a Baldwin
kick.
Then late in the third quar-
ter the Cougars took the lead for
good on a Santwan Moore 3-
yard zip and another Baldwin
kick that put it at 28-21.
East Gadsden had a cou-
ple of chances to tie things up
before Godby finally closed the
door when Downs caught his
second scoring pass of the night
this one covering 10 yards from
Graham. Baldwin's final kick
finished off the 35 Cougar
points.
Brown had 50 rushing
yards to go along with his pass-
ing production.
The Jaguars are 5-4 and
will wrap up their season at
Florida High Friday night in a 7
pm game.


Tigers purr-fect


Entertaining the homecom-
ing crowd, Shanks completed its
3rd straight season undefeated
and unscored on by blanking
Havana 48-0.
O.J. Johnson connected with
Tedrick Murray with an 18 yard
TD pass in the 1st stanza. Terrell
Dantley's PAT run put the Tigers
up 8-0. Late in the first, O.J.
decided to keep it himself for a
29 yd. scamper. Feeling confi-
dent, O.J. hooked up with
Donterious Gee with two TD


passes, 20 and 53 yards respec-
tively. Dantley's PAT made it
28-0 at the half.
Opening the second half, O.J.
scored again on a 23 yard keep-
er for 6 points. Walter Reddick's
fumble return of 26 yards upped
the score to 40. Reddick's 7
tackles and a recovery, followed
by Tedrick Murray's 54 yard
return of an interception closed
to door. Darryl Smith's PAT run
ended the season PURR-FECT.


Munroe volleyball wins

quarterfinal playoff game


The Munroe volleyball team
showed why they were district
champs and East Hill Christian
runners up as the Lady Cats dis-
posed of the Lady Eagles in
three quick games (25-16, 25-
15, 25-23) at Munroe last
Tuesday. The Class A Region 1
quarterfinal contest was a first
round playoff game.
Sophomore setter, Ivie
Thomas had a big, overall night
with seven kills, eight assists
and four service aces. Senior
Mallary Taylor had five kills


and led with 13 assists. Jill
Purvis, a junior, was valuable on
defense as she had seven digs
and 2 blocks. Crystal Wade,
also a junior, finished with nine
digs.
"No disrespect to East Hill,"
said Coach Mike Dolan, "but
that was one of the weakest
teams we played this year.
Seven of our opponents that
accounted for fourteen of our
games are in the playoffs".
Munroe's record moved to 11-
- 15 on the season.


Sharks bite Panthers 34-7


On a wet night suited for sea
life the Port St. Joe Sharks came
to Greensboro and tore through
the Panthers for a 34-7 football
win giving St. Joe the runner up
spot in District 1-A and denying
West Gadsden a play-off berth
in the upcoming state football
series.


The Sharks struck early in
the contest when Ashley Davis
scored on a 2-yard run capping a
long early drive.
Davis scored again mid-
way the second quarter on a 6-
yard run making it 13-0 at the
half.
Davis who ran for 213 yards


on the night got 2 more touch-
downs in the third quarter on 80
and 9 yard gallops.
Ron Burns got the only
Panther late in the third quarter
on a one yard plunge before the
Sharks, Greg Farmer, wrapped
up liings with a 1-yard fourth
quarter touchdown.


Burns finished the night
with 166 yards rushing.
The loss put West
Gadsden's record at 5-4. They
close the season Friday night
when they host Mayo the state's
number 1 1-A team at 8 pm.


Munroe

volleyball

plays well

but loses to

state ranked

Ocala team

St. John Ocala Lutheran
showed why they were 26-2 and
ranked second in the state as the
Lady Saints ended Munroe's
volleyball season on Saturday in
Ocala. St. John had eight sen-
iors on the team and five of
them starters. They had elimi-
nated the Lady Cats two consec-
utive seasons in Region 1 semi-
finals for Class A and were at
home. St. John won 25-14, 25-
18, 25-11.
St. John got five straight
points from senior hitter Lauren
Richardson during a 9-1 run,
which gave them a 12-3 lead in
the first game. The Saints led by
as many as 11 points and never
allowed the Bobcats to get clos-
er than eight.
The second game, though,
saw Munroe put up a fight.
The two teams combined for
10 ties and the Bobcats led by as
many as four points, but the
Saints regrouped quickly and
the two stayed close. Ocala
then scored the final six points
to end the game.
"We kind of lost our focus
and you have got to hand it to
Munroe," Ocala coach Laura
Duncan said. "They played
hard. I've always said that this
is a game of momentum -and for
a few points there they had it,
but we were able to get back to
See Lady Cats on Page 11.


Rattlers strike

Munroe 73-0

FAMU's Delmus Harrison
returned the opening kick-off 65
yards for a touchdown and
things never got better for
Munroe Friday night and the
Rattler's won a 73-0 district
game over the Bobcats.
Before the night was over
FAMU's Richard Watson had
run for 351 yards and 7 touch-
downs.
Watson's scoring runs were
2, 70, 51, 20, 56, 55, and 72
yards.
The loss set Munroe at 3-
6 for the year. They will close
their season Friday night at
Corry Field when. they host
Liberty Co. in a 7:30 pm game.

cutline: County Commission Chairman Ed Dixon
discuss as County Manager Marlon Brown looks on.


Common ground

Continued from Page 1
city has a mutual aid agreement with other
municipalities and volunteer fire units, but not with
Midway.
The fire calls to Midway were getting out of hand,
according to Bogan. Dixon agreed that the growth
in Midway is impacting on other county
departments. "It's the same with the sheriff's office
and public works. Their philosophy has to change,"
Dixon said.
*Gadsden County Hospital:
Marlon Brown said utilities at the hospital are now
in the county's name and that the county will be
responsible for paying the bill in the future. When
the hospital closed, Ashford Healthcare, Inc., the
management company that operated the hospital,
owed the city over $100,000 in utility payments.
"We appreciate you having faith in us that we will
pay our bill," Brown said.
Since the city has a major stake in the hospital,
Dowdell suggested the city should have a person
sitting on the Board of Directors. There was no
opposition to the city having a presence on the
board, but Dixon said the Board was an entity in
itself, with a non-profit status.
"Then they can raise money. When I was at the
Senior Citizens Center, we raised money with the
rock-a-thon. The hospital needs money to operate. It
would be a good way to get some of those people
hollering about the hospital involved," Dowdell
said.
Dixon said the facility is ready. "They're out there
every day tweaking things. We've tried to be careful
in what we've said, not to raise expectations too
fast," Dixon said.
"Once we get the hospital open, we've got to work
together to make sure it never closes again," Bogan
said.
Solid Waste Agreement:
No one, Dixon said, is happy with Waste
Management and the service the company is
providing. All of the representatives agreed they
would like to see something put in the contract that
calls for a penalty for non-pickup.
Bogan said the city and Waste Management are
close to negotiation a solution to their financial
problems. "They've paid us $206,000 and we've
paid them $385,000. The Waste Management bill
has always been two months behind, but we are
gradually catching up," he said.
Dowdell said Waste Pro, another waste service,
looks good right now as an alternative to Waste
Management, but he said that he would like to stay
with Waste Management despite some current
problems because the company had been loyal to
city in the past.
"Waste Management is not looked on favorable in
the county. I haven't met a resident yet who is
happy with Waste Management," Dixon said.
'*Community Redevelopment Agency Funding:
"Our concern is that the CRA is wasting money on
housing and other things that do not bring money
into the downtown. We're contributing a quarter of
a million dollars to the CRA and we're not at the
table, you won't invite us to the table. Give us the
opportunity to participate with the CRA. You're (the
city) contributing significantly less to the CRA

(left) addressed issues the city and county agreed to


because we're at 10 mills and you're at 2.5 mills."
Dixon said
Bogan said the city would welcome an ex-officio
member on the CRA Board. But right now, the city
commission sits as the CRA Board. There is some
discussion among the commission on returning the
CRA to the advisory board. And, the CRA does not
have a manager. Commissioners are currently in the
process of conducting interviews for a CRA
manager. The job has been vacant for almost six
months.
"My concern is not about who you hire. What do
we get for the money?" he asked.
"We will get a person from the county on the CRA
Board some'kind of way. The county commisison
should be involved," Dowdell said.
*Parks and Recreation Agreement:
Brown said the county is still in the process of
arranging a trip to Jupiter to look at that
community's intergenerational recreation facility,
which is considered one of the best in Florida. The
county invited the city to join them on the trip.
*Quincy Police Department Land Needs:
While the city needs a police department Dixon
said the Sheriff's Office also needs a new facility.
"We're going to meet the sheriff's needs first. There
could be co-location with each department having
its own separate entrance," Dixon suggested.
The city plans to spend approximately $3 million
dollars for a new police station and that money
added to the county's money could be a way to
construct a facility. Bogan said the city commission
meets in two weeks and he would bring the
suggestion up for discussion.
"Even if we don't get the federal dollars, we're
going to have to do something for the sheriff. A lot
of things we (the county) don't have the funds for
but they are a part of the plan," Dixon said. He
suggested the city to help pay for the services of
(Federal) lobbyists who will hejp find ways to get
funds to the county.
Dowdell said he felt the city would not object to
paying part of the fee if all other municipalities in
the county paid too.
*Gadsden County IT Services:
The county will renew it's contract with
Netquincy. "Both Netquincy and TDS-Telcom were
over budgeted but Netquincy was closer so we'll go
with them," Brown said.
*Fuel Management:
No action taken.
*Legislative:
The City of Quincy committed to be involved in
the county's legislative initiative. "It's nice to be
friendly but we're looking for cash to help pay for
lobbyist," Dixon said.
He said the county is changing its strategy
when it comes to economic development. "We're
taking our assets to the world. We're going to sell
Gadsden County by looking at the folks who have
sold their communities successfully. We're going to
be looking at waste water and sewer. We're poised
to do that right now, Dixon said.
In an unrelated matter, Dixon asked if the city
could find money to help keep the Quincy Shuttle
operating. The Department of Transportation grant
that was used to to fund the shuttle is nearly spent.
The shuttle operates in and around Quincy for a
small fee.
"A lot of people actually ride the shuttle. It only
cost about $5,000 to $10,000 a year."


If Ocala was led by experi-
ence, Munroe was led by youth.
Freshman Spenser Morris led
the Lady Cats with seven kills
and sophomore Ivie Thomas
followed with 10 assists four
service points. Junior Jill
Purvis was second in kills
against the much taller Ocala
team, finishing with five kills.
"I thought we played St.
John better this year than in this
match than in any other year we
have played them," -said Mike
Dolan. "They were forced to
take a time out in the second
game and that was a first in
three years! This team should
be able to work hard over the
next year and beat this team in
2007!"
Munroe finished their season
11-16. They graduate three
seniors Julia Bates, Mallary
Taylor and Kyndal McPhaul.

A hero's honor

Sheriff Morris Young honored local hero Alfreda Gunn last week with a plaque commemorat-
ing the 12-year-old's heroic performance when the family's mobile home burned. Alfreda is cred-
ited with saving the lives of her family, including her four-year-old brother Norman, to whom she
administered CPR after dragging him from under his bed and outside to safety.



Book Reviews

by Wendy Isbell

Crooked Lake, by Nelson Brunanski

Crack open a copy of Crooked Lake and you'll discover a romping account of life, love and murder
on the Canadian Prairies. The drama unfolds in a small town in Saskatchewan where every nosy neigh-
bor is an amateur sleuth and accusatory tongues wag freely down at coffee row!
When a man is murdered on the shores of Crooked Lake, easy-going Bart Bartowski sets aside work
at his fly-in fishing lodge to come to the aid of his childhood friend who has been accused of the crime.
Tempted by a beautiful young cottager and beguiled by the murdered man's wife, Bart is dogged by
RCMP detectives who want him to stay out of what they consider an open and shut case. In his perilous
pursuit of whodunit, Bart reveals the heart of a small town, taking a stab at its complacency and laying
bare some of its juiciest moral dilemmas.
Crooked Lake is a funny, well-written book and would be a good read even without the profanity (of
which there is very little, but still...); Brunanski develops his plot well without wandering.
Watch for the sequel called Frost Bite.



Mysterious Valley, by J. McGrath

In this second Maggie Goss mystery, Maggie and Helen, hurting from their devastating ordeal in
Belhaven, decide to visit the San Francisco area for a couple months of R&R. Maggie becomes hooked
on'flying and while pursuing her pilot's license performs a simulated engine-out emergency over rugged
intermountain terrain.
When she encounters a powerful green beam of light at a small private airport (named Mysterious
Valley!) her undauntable curiosity is ignited. During her quest to find out what is going on, she and
Helen uncover what they suspect is a secret subversive organization operating in the middle of the Napa
Valley.
Digging for answers, Maggie draws the attention of this organization, and the story develops quick-
ly to a thrilling conclusion of international proportions, involving the FBI-again. This could happen!
First in the series is Murder at Sunset.



Workforce Express takes



employment services on the road


Special to the Times

Employers and jobseekers looking for
employment services will no longer have to
venture to their local office for help after
Workforce Plus initiates its new Workforce
Express program.
The mission of Workforce Express is to take
employment services to those who are looking
for them.
The mobile office can provide the same
resources as the agency's local offices.
Outfitted with 12 Internet-connected work sta-
tions on its interior, Workforce Express can also
set up 15 additional laptops for outdoor use.
"This will give us an opportunity to expand
our ability to provide services, particularly in
rural communities," said Kim Moore, chief
executive officer of Workforce Plus.
"It will also serve as a quick response vehi-
cle in meeting our jobseeker, employer and
community needs in Gadsden, Leon and
Wakulla counties."
Workforce Express can help job seekers
write resumes and cover letters, find jobs post-
ed in its job bank, provide computer training
and assist with work skills evaluations.
There are many amenities for the employer
as well, including job screening assistance and
disaster recovery, and worker transition assis-
tance.
WORKFORCE plus is among only four of
the 24 regional workforce boards in Florida to
have a mobile unit and the only workforce
board in the Panhandle to have a unit.
The WORKFORCE Express will improve
access to job seekers and youths in rural com-
munities in the area, said state Rep. Curtis
Richardson, D-Tallahassee.
"This is a good day for the business commu-


nity in the Big Bend," he said. "I just think the
possibilities for this mobile express are limit-
less."
"WORKFORCE Express represents the
newest tool workforce officials will turn to, to
deliver the employment resources our work-
force needs to compete," said Kurt Salsburg,
vice president of Economic and Workforce
Development at Tallahassee Community
College, the premier sponsor of the WORK-
FORCE Express.
WORKFORCE Express made its first stop
Saturday at the Hope Community during the
Tallahassee Veterans Stand Down at 2729 W.
Pensacola Street.
The Veterans Stand Down is a service day
held in conjunction with the Big Bend
Homeless Coalition and other agencies that pro-
vide free medical care, personal items and
clothing vouchers to the community's homeless
population.
The unit will also partner with the G*Stars
project in Gadsden County to provide work-
readiness skills for youth, ages 14 to 18, in an
after-school program for middle and high
school students.
WORKFORCE Express was commissioned
in May 2006 and WORKFORCE plus received
the mobile unit through a grant awarded by the
Agency for Workforce Innovation (AWI).
The Agency for Workforce Innovation is
Florida's workforce development agency that
administers workforce development, unemploy-
ment compensation, labor market statistics and
early learning programs.
If you are interested in learning more about
the WORKFORCE Express or WORKFORCE
plus, please call (850) 414-6085 ori visit their
website at www.wfplus.org.

Havana employees

get 'tip of the hat'

and fried chicken as

show of appreciation

by LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor

.Employees of the Town of Havana got a free,
catered meal Friday.
Members of Women of Divine Destiny, a
ministry founded by Town Councilwoman
Shirley McGill, served up fried chicken, green
beans, potato salad, iced tea and an assortment of
pies and cakes to show employees their appreci-
ation.
"They always go unnoticed," McGill said.
"We thought it was time to show them that they
are really appreciated."
The appreciation luncheon, served in the
Hazel Baker community hall behind the fire
department, began at noon.
Women of Divine Destiny members, nine
total, also visit nursing homes, hospitals, serve
Thanksgiving dinner to the elderly and give
Valentine's Day gifts to the elderly.
The Garden Club also hosts an appreciation
luncheon for Town of Havana employees, tradi-
tionally in January.


Gadsden County Employees
will be kicking off their 2006
United Way Campaign themed
"I Am A LifeSaver" on Monday,
November 6, 2006. This is the
first United Way employee cam-
paign in Gadsden County under
County Manager Marlon Brown
and it is scheduled to run two
weeks, ending on Friday,
November 17, 2006.
The County Manager has
noted that this is an important
event for the residents of
Gadsden County as the funds
that will be raised through this
campaign will be earmarked
specifically for Gadsden
County and reinvested in the
community. "This is truly a
worthwhile effort and I believe
in the good work that the United
Way is doing," said Mr. Brown.
"A wonderful opportunity exists
for our team to take action to
help our fellow man and woman
in Gadsden County."
The Gadsden County United
Way Employee Campaign
Committee, made up of Arthur
Lawson, Sr., Betty Miller,
Sheila Faircloth, and Jon D.
Brown, hosted a recent
Breakfast & Training Meeting
for department Employee
Campaign Coordinators to dis-
cuss many activities planned to
get employees involved in the
2006 campaign and the diligent
work that will need to be done to
ensure a successful and memo-
rable campaign.
The Gadsden County United
Way Employee Campaign goal
was set at $10,500. All the
dollars raised in Gadsden
County through this campaign
will stay in Gadsden County,


being disbursed to agencies
through a Community
Investment Team comprised of
Gadsden County Citizens.
Each agency must undergo a
rigorous review process to be
considered for funding, provid-
ing detailed information how
last year's funds were spent,
and detailing the programs for
their new funding request.
The United Way of the Big
Bend was founded February 11,
1943. It was chartered by nine
concerned citizens for the pur-
pose of raising and distributing
funds to charitable and charac-
ter-building agencies. On June
20, 1990, United Way changed
its name, formerly United Way
of Leon County, and incorporat-
ed the seven surrounding coun-
ties of the Big Bend region into
its service area. The organiza-
tion is dedicated to supporting
the greatest variety of human
service agencies in its service
area and reaching people from
all walks of life and income
groups. The organization's 43
represented agencies address the
most prominent need areas in
.the community: youth develop-
ment, emergency services, phys-
ical health, children's services,
senior services, family support,
,services to the disabled, com-
munity support, and substance
abuse.

Gangs

Continued from Page 1
McPhaul said part of the
problem is that a lot of people,
including some in law
enforcement, do not believe
there are gangs here.
"They prefer to think that
these are just kids hanging
around with each other and
:some of that is true, but we have
to acknowledge that some of
them are gangs," she said.
Florida statutes define a gang
as any group that hangs
together, lives in the same area,
commit crimes together, dress
alike, or adopt a common sign
as a way of communicating.
"Any two of these can be used
to consider a group a gang.
There are other factors we also
use including the criminal
background of some of these
individuals and other things that
we, in law enforcement; know,"
she said.
Gangs, she said, are very
complicated. "It's like a big
umbrella and all of these little
spines coming down," she said.
There are also different rites of
passage into local gangs and
none are the same.
"There are some beat-ins,
there is a rise in batteries at
schools and burglaries, are going
up," she said, and all are
indicators of gang activity.
A "beat-in" occurs when all of
the members currently in the
gang take turns beating new
members before they are
accepted.
Other gangs demand that
would-be member steal
something or commit a home
invasion to show good faith.
Gangs may not mark their
territory with grafitti in Gadsden
County but they will fashion
tee-shirts with the same logos
'and symbols. These may also
use the same symbols on the
backpacks and note books.
"We're trying to inform the
parents and the community.
Parents don't understand what
their kids are doing. This has
always been a family-oriented
community and people see
things as innocent when they
have a deeper meaning," she
said, adding, "all of these kids
watch BET and MTV and listen
to rap. If you ever listen to some


of the lyrics, you'll know that
all of it is not innocent,"
McPhaul said.
She singled out a rapper and
known drug drealer called
Young Jeezy whose latest song,
"Trap or Die" is about the best
way to sell cocaine. Other
innocent looking signs she said
students sport is are t-shirts with
a snowman on it.
"The snowman looks very
innocent to a parent, it may even
look cute, but it the symbol of
cocaine," she said.
And because many gang
members have a criminal past if
they are sent to the regional
detention center in Tallahassee,
it only exposes them to more
criminal information.
"We have gotten photos taken
at the detention center where
(our) local gangs have marked
off their territory in the
detention center. It is not a local
problem anymore, it's a regional
problem, it's just a problem,"
she said.
Gangs are run from jails and
prisons. By their very nature
and involvement in the drug and
gun culture they are dangerous.
Juvenile detention centers are
becoming the training ground
for gangs.
Gadsden county's proximity to
Tallahassee, more families
moving here from larger cities,
parents sending children to live
with relatives believing that a
rural setting will curb their city
ways are all pointed to as
contributing to the local gang
climate.
Not all juveniles are involved
with gangs when the wear
certain apparel. "You have to
determine if they are just trying
to be fashionable or if they are
actually trying to get involved,"
she said.
Parents are advised to be
aware of what their children
wear. "Parents need to know
what is in the children's room
and the closets. If there is
something they don't know or
understand, they need to find
out. The kids know what these
things mean but the parents
don't," she said.
McPhaul and law enforcement
officers from throughout the
county have begun holding
regular meetings and sharing
information.
A Gang Resistant Education
and Training (G.R.E.A.T.)


program is about the begin. A
regional gang task force that
includes Gadsden, Leon,
Jackson, and Wakulla counties
is also meeting to share


infromation.
"Gangs are here and we'd
better recognize it and meet the
problem head on, all of us,"
McPhaul said.


Obituary
The following obituary was received too late to be included in
our regular obituary section.

Evangelist Cornelia Pore

ters, and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins and friend.



Jim Kellum is running for county commissioner District 2 and
he has demonstrated a true concern for this county. The work
he has done with the senior citizens proves his compassion for
our elderly. If our senior citizens are please with Mr. Kellum
than I am sure we all will be pleased so. His representation on
the board of county commission will be, an asset to our county.
He is an independent thinker and will make his own decisions.
And that is the kind of person we need in office. Mr. Kellum
has met with many civic groups to help better the county. He is
the only candidate that met with local organizations to help
establish a boys and girls club in Gadsden County. As said in
the past go home with the one that brought. He has shown that
he is for our county. The people of Gadsden County is number
one concern,

Also remember to vote "Yes" for the Half Cent Sales tax to
support our own Health Care in Gadsden County and
Amendment 6 for our Senior Citizens to receive the 50,000
homestead exemption.

Thanks for your encouraging words and Spiritual support.

Shooting

questioning him he started
crying and confessed," Young
said.
Bryant was then arrested and
charged with first-degree murder.
He is being held in Leon County
without bond.
According to a report released
by the Gadsden County Sheriff's
Office, Bryant confirmed that he
shot Parks with a revolver until
all of the
bullets had
been fired.
The report
went on to .
state that
Bryant said \
Parks .
robbed him I
at gunpoint ,1 wn
on October t
13 and that
Bryant had Robert Bryant
been afraid
of Parks since the incident.
Lt. Jim Corder said Bryant said
his girlfriend Whitney Issac, who
lived at Parkway Manor, went
there Thursday to get clothes
because they were being
threatened by Parks and had been
living in Tallahassee for the past
two weeks.
"They were trying to keep out
of Parks' way that's why they
went to get clothes. Parks drove
into the complex but he was
driving someone else's car and
that's why
they didn't
recognize
him," '
Order said.
As Bryant
and Issac -
started to .
drive out of
the complex
they.
encountered
Parks who Cedrick Parks
was parked
in the middle of the street. The
two vehicles were side by side
and Bryant, according to the
report, reached under the seat and
pulled out a revolver and used it
to shoot Parks.
Bryant stated that he observed
Parks with a gun as Bryant drove
his vehicle toward Parks' vehicle.
Bryant said that he drew his gun
and shot Parks only in response
to seeing Parks attempting to
draw his gun, the report stated.
Upon further investigation,
however, no firearms or evidence
of Parks possessing a firearm was
located at the crime scene and all
of Parks' injuries appeared to be
in the back.
Witnesses were able to provide
authorities with information on
Bryant as well as the make and
model of SUV he was driving.
They even told officers where
Bryant's parents live.
Issac said that after the shooting
Bryant drove to the interstate and
headed toward Tallahassee and
threw the gun out of the window.
Quincy Police Chief Gerald
McSwain said that shortly after
midnight and several hours after
the shooting someone drove by
Bryant's parents' home and fired
three shots into the front of the
house. The house was
unoccupied at the time.
"Witnesses saw a late model
Chrysler, kind of light colored,
speed away from the area after
the shooting. One of our officers
saw a vehicle matching that
description around 2 a.m. Sunday
morning. He chased him all the
way to Leon County, where the
subject got away," he said.




Wild game

Track Club will be hosting the
5th Annual Wild Game Cookout
on November 11 at 1 p.m.

11, at 1 p.m. at the home of
Rogers and Denise Lewis in the
Jamieson Community.
"Everybody is welcome and the

The club will honor the 2005-
2006 Buckmaster of the Year,
Ron Frye of Quincy. Frye was
selected because he landed the
largest buck in the club last
season, a 13-pointer, taking the
title from the 2004-2005 winner
Ben Morgan of Cairo, GA. "He
gets bragging rights for a year,"
said Rogers Lewis.
The Lewis' say everyone is
welcome. "Bring their' chairs,
loungers, tents, and tables and
share in the festivities before
hunting season beings," she said.

cookout will be featured in next
week's Gadsden County Times.

another resigned after 19 years, one was placed on
administrative leave and another was terminated for
misconduct. The Chief of Police's administrative assis-

Havana Police Chief Mitchell off to Crestview


by LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor

Brian Mitchell remembers well the
murder case his department solved with the
help of the Florida Department of Law
Enforcement and the Leon County
Sheriff's Office.
It was 2002, and the investigation of. the
murder of Constance Dupont was
underway. Once FDLE was able to obtain a
wiretap that led to two suspects, the case
was solved and the men indicted.
"I was really pleased with the way FDLE
and Leon County and our department
worked together to solve that," Mitchell
said.
Having been chief of the Havana Police
Department for more than eight years, he's
seen his share of both the good and the bad
the town has to offer.
His hope for the town, he said, is that the
town manager is able to find a candidate


dedicated to the community and who has
the ability to help the department transition
to a new building. The closing deadline for'
applications for the post is Nov. 9. By
Tuesday morning, 30 had applied for the
post, Town Manager Howard McKinnon
said.
Mitchell said he hopes his job will be
filled by "somebody who can fit into the
community, who would be able to develop
expanding horizons through a new police
department somebody dedicated to the
community they serve," he said. "A new
police department building is in the works.
It will be either adjacent to or connected to
town hall. There's no design yet, but there's
m6ney in the budget to consult with an
architect."
This week, he spent most of his time
trying' to tie up loose ends before moving
on to a post as chief of the Crestview
Police Department.
The decision to leave, he said, was mostly


based on an aspiration to. work for "a
bigger department, and take on a bigger
challenge."
During his tenure, Mitchell, 42, procured
new uniforms for officers, helped the
Havana Police Department become the first
municipality to go to 12-hour shifts with
every other weekend off and initiated
involvement in the "Click It or Ticket" and
"Buckle Up" statewide canipaigns. The
department won first place for the Florida
Law Enforcement Challenge for its work in
the "Click It or Ticket" campaign in 2002.
One of the chief's newest additions to the
department's tool box is a wireless network
system that will enable officers to use
laptop computers to file reports in real
time, pull up a name and known contacts
instantly and access driver's license and
vehicle tag information.
To fund the new technology, he used
money confiscated during a raid of a bingo
parlor operating illegally in Havana in


2005.
One of the reasons he chose law
enforcement as a career, Mitchell said, was
the profession's ability to make a positive
impact on a community.
"Just being able to make a difference -
people may only reach out to police one
time in their lives they may be the victim
of a crime, or need direction, or have a
relative with a substance abuse problem -
that's the time when you can put all the
skills you've developed to use to fill a
need," he said.
Town Council members praised
Mitchell's wotk during Tuesday's regular
meeting.
"Brian has done an excellent job in the
Town of Havana. He's well-respected,"
McKinnon said.
In return, Mitchell said he's enjoyed his
time in Havana.
"It's been a real great experience," he
said.

SADD celebrates 25 years


For more than a quarter-cen-
tury, SADD (Students Against
Destructive Decisions) has been
empowering students to make a
difference in the l4ves of their
peers, saving thousands of
young lives along the way.
"SADD Turns 25: Lighting the
Way," a nationwide event, offers
SADD students and their
schools and communities an
opportunity to celebrate this
success and light the way for the
next 25 years.

Nationwide Celebration
During the week of October
30 through November 3, SADD
chapters will hold themed activ-
ities focusing on key issues such
as underage drinking, other drug
use, and safe driving. Many
chapters are also holding special
ceremonies on November 2,
"SADD Lantern Night." SADD
students will bring together
community members, including
law enforcement officers, teach-
ers, parents, and local elected
officials.
"SADD's twenty-fifth birth-
day is an opportunity to both
celebrate and to reflect: to cele-
brate the accomplishments of

hundreds of thousands of teens
and adults over a quarter-centu-
ry and to reflect on the work that
remains to be done," stated
Penny Wells, president and
executive director of SADD.
"Through consistent, thoughtful
and creative contributions by
young people empowered to
,help their friends, we will con-
tinue to make strides in saving
teen lives."
One of the largest SADD
Birthday celebrations will be
held in Vermont. On November'
2, Wells will join youth from
across Vermont for a press con-
ference and lantern ceremony on
the steps of the State House in
Montpelier. Students represent-
ing almost every SADD chapter
in the state will attend.

The History of SADD
SADD was founded at
Wayland High School in
Wayland, Massachusetts, in the
fall of 1981 following the tragic
deaths of two students in sepa-
rate alcohol-related crashes that
happened less than two weeks
apart. Hockey coach Bob
Anastas and a'group of students
decided to name their group

It was the first Hispanic church service at
Forest Hills United Methodist Church, and minis-

wanted to see available.
"When I was pastor in Greensboro (United
Methodist Church) I was told by the superintend-
ent they wanted to put in a Hispanic service," she
said.
. It didn't work out at the time; but once Walker
became minister of Forest Hills in July, she was
once again asked by a new superintendent to
establish a Hispanic service.
"God's timing is all perfect," she said.

I was destined for the underbelly of life! I berated

College is worse. You would think that
people who have car notes and mortgages and
all of the other things that come along with
being an adult would not allow the actions of a
group of teenage boys in tight pants to dictate
the way their day or week goes, but it happens.

to locate they key in the dark without a flash light,
I rushed back to my house and called 9-1-1. Within
minutes, an EMS truck had arrived in front of my
neighbors house. I then took Don Crum and Brian
Beasley to the back of the house where it took them
some time to find the keys to get in the house.
To make along story short, they checked her out
and finding nothing wrong, got her back on her feet,
and didn't have to transport her to a hospital.
The message I would like to convey to the readers
of this article is to advise elderly parents and friends
living alone to immediately telephone 9-1-1 in all
emergencies. Please don't waste precious time
calling children and neighbors.
It would be good to go to the EMS headquarters
and talk to the chief, Brian Beasley, and make
contingency plans. I had to call this service many
times when my elderly father would fall and was so
relieved to receive professional help within minutes.
This service is something that I'm glad to have my
tax dollars used for.
Just remember, "a friend in need is a friend
indeed", and EMS is just that friend.

Utility bills scary
Trick or Treat
This is the right season for what we are going
through. It's scary, terrifying and also horrible.
Because when we get our utility bill we wonder will
it be a trick or treat. When I was growing up my
most scariest monster was a vampire. Now that
monster (vampire) don't have nothing on how
scared I feel when I receive my utility bill.
With my unopened bill in my hands, I start
sweating, my pulse start racing, and my heart feels
like it skips a beat.
In a vampire movie the vampire would suck the
life force (blood) from his victim. That's how we
feel about our utility bill, it's sucking the life out of
us. We have had more tricks with our bills than
treat.
Three weeks ago I pulled out my kerosene heater,

thought that he was dressed up as a type I
diabetic for Halloween but realized he probably
was the real thing. That put me at ease in a way
I won't waste space here describing. Only 5 to
10 percent of us are type 1 in the diabetes-
diagnosed world.
"Well, what do you think? Anxiety? Stress?" I
asked, eager to get back home and sort through
my son's Halloween candy for a prime piece of
chocolate. Just one. Maybe two.
"I think it's your heart," he said grimly.
'* I was stunned.
"We're going to keep you overnight and do a
cardiac cath in the morning," he said.
That surreal feeling returned, full force.
"Can I come back tomorrow and have it
done?" I asked.
"No," he said.
I called my husband, who, by the way, had
insisted for some time that I go to the ER to
have my symptoms checked out. I called my
mother, my father, my brother.
In the morning, a cardiologist did the cath, in
which a tiny camera mounted on a thin wire is
threaded through the femoral artery to the heart
so doctors can get a good look at the arteries
feeding it and at the heart itself.
Afterward, the cardiologist walked up to the
side of my bed.
"I'm going to check with the surgeons to see
if you're a candidate for bypass surgery," he
said. "You need a quintuple bypass."

Election Day and they came to take me into
surgery.
Just before they put me under, my preacher
came bursting through the double swinging
doors. I was glad to see him, and appreciative
that he had come all that way to see me at that
hour of the day.
Roughly seven hours later, I awoke in the
ICU. The first thing I heard was wailing and
screaming from the cubicle next to mine that
38-year-old woman who came in the same
night I did had died.
I couldn't move. I had an intubation tube
down my throat, a catheter in my jugular, three
drainage tubes protruding from my midsection
and a host of IV lines cascading into my arms.
"We'll take the intubation tube out when you
can lift your head off the pillow," a nurse told
me.
My, mom and my husband stood, pale-faced
and silent, next to my bed. My dad wasn't able
to get to Florida for the surgery in time -it'all
happened so fast but he drove down after td6.
see me.
"Lift your head," I told myself, savagely, my
sole desire being to call my son and tell him I I
was OK. "Lift your head. Lift your head. Lift
your head."
Once I was out of the ICU and in a room, I
asked my husband to bring my Bible when he
came back.
I opened it right to Psalms 30:2-3: "0 Lord
.my God, I cried unto thee, and thou hast healed'
me. 3. 0 Lord, thou hast brought up my soul
from the grave: thou hast kept me alive, that I
should not go down to the pit."
Overwhelming relief, and gratitude, swept
through me.
When I was well enough for my son to visit,
he wouldn't look at me or talk to me terrified,
I knew. It was a difficult experience for a 2-
year-old to endure. And for a spouse.
OK, it didn't thrill me either.
My husband took several weeks off from
work to take care of me after the surgery. He
was worried, and shocked and wonderful.
I had a great team of doctors, empathetic and
talented every one Dr. Hayes, my cardiologist,
has since moved on, Dr. Hurt is still around, I
understand, saving lives. I gained a new
endocrinologist during my stay who told me,
on my first visit to his office after the surgery,
"It's good to see you with your clothes on."
I get that a lot from medical types.
I've drifted back into some unhealthy habits,
am not getting the exercise I should, for one
thing, but I'll get back on the right track soon
enough. I did not suffer a heart attack, so my
heart was not damaged, but it could be if I
don't mind my Ps and Qs.
If you have chest pain, go to the emergency
room. Period.
This Halloween, I marked my second
anniversary of being undead. Life is good.



When local college teams lose, there is a
heaviness in the air. A friend of mine who
works in a large office building said people
walk around not talking and when they do they
act as if a member of the family died. They
spend the week replaying the game in their
heads trying to figure out why "their team"
didn't win. They second-guess the head coach,
his staff, and tell they players (for their own
good) what they could have done better.
For some reason, we have lost sight of what
sports should be about and it's taken over the
lives of way too many people.



so don't try to trick me now, because twix is for
kids.
So don't be a goblin this month with our bills, be;
an angel and bless us this month. Power to the'

Ferman Richardson left the
Gretna Police Department, but he
didn't leave it without a chief in
charge.
His replacement, Brian Bess,
was officially named to the
position Oct. 31 and will get a
new police department building
to accompany his new title.
Richardson, who had worked at
the Quincy Police Department
prior to being named chief of the
Gretna PD around a .year ago,
turned in his letter of resignation
Oct. 10 in order to return to the
Quincy PD as a major.
Bess stepped in as interim chief
until being named as the
permanent replacement by City
Manager Antonio Jefferson.
"We conducted a search for
someone locally, with the
understanding that if that didn't
net us what we felt was a good
candidate, we'd go outside,"
Jefferson said. "We want to give
employees who have worked
with the city for a while a chance
to advance."
Jefferson got three outside
applications for the job, which
was advertised internally.
Bess, 25, served as interim
chief for two years prior to
Richardson's hiring. A Bay
County native, he has worked at
the Gretna PD for nearly five
years.
"The biggest challenge is
getting the community involved,"
he said of his job. "Chief
Richardson started a community
oriented policing program, and I
plan to continue that practice."
City officials have planned a
groundbreaking ceremony for the
second week in December. With
the help of county funding, they
plan to build a 5,000-square-foot
building that will house both the
police and fire departments. Plans
call for a three-bay building with
sleeping quarters and
administrative offices for the
police department. Police officers
will also be trained as firefighters
to help support the city's 10-
member volunteer fire
department.
The plan calls for the police
department to become a public
safety department, and the new
building is to be located across
the street from City Hall and the
current police building.
"We are looking at grant
opportunities to fund the cross-
training," Jefferson said. "We
hope to be able to offer a little
more in pay and a little more of a
full-time presence by the" fire
department."


The second of two cruisers
donated to -the city by the
Gadsden County Sheriff's Office
arrived late last week; once
they're restriped and painted,
they'll be ready to go, Bess said.
Both Bess and Jefferson said
Richardson served the
department well.
"He put the department in line
and headed it on a track to
succeed," Bess said. "I plan to
continue that track."
Jefferson said the former chief
worked hard to earn the
community's trust.
"Chief Richardson successfully
regained the confidence of the
public. Citizens understood that
is a professional department," he
said. "He began the process of
connecting the community to the


department and getting them to
buy into the process."
In his letter of resignation,
Richardson listed several of the
changes that took place during
his year at the Gretna PD, calling
it "better-educated, better-trained
and more respected in the
community, judicial system and
amongst other law enforcement
entities."
His efforts to engage the
community' included events such
as "Meet the Chief," "Trick-or-
Treat Giveaway," "National
Night Out," an observance of
Martin Luther King Jr. Day and
an annual Gretna PD Easter egg
hunt:
He also established a victim's
advocate program.

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.

In Memory
If tears could build a stairway, and memories a lane,
we'll walk right up to heaven and bring you back
again. No farewell words were spoken, no time to say
goodbye. You were gone before we knew it, only God
knows why. Our hearts still ache with sadness, and
secret tears still flow. What it meant to lose you, no
one will ever know. But we know you will want us to
mourn for you no more. To remember all the happy
times, life still has much in store. Since you'll never be
forgotten, we pledge to you today, a hallowed place
within our hearts, is where you'll always stay.

amazing evening for you! Get
ready to see the likes of Bob
Hope, Frank Sinatra and the Rat
Pack, the Andrews Sisters,

All of these stars (or at least
people who look and sound a lot
like them) will shine brightly at
FSU's USO Tribute Show, a
brand-new Friday night event on
football game weekends sched-
uled for Nov. 10, 17 and 24 under
the FSU Flying High Circus
Tent.
Offering either a dinner and
show (reserved seating) or show-

Show will showcase the talents
of FSU theatre, music, and dance

ing five decades of American
history from World War II to
Desert Storm.

ries of American icons like Bing
Crosby, Elvis Presley, Dorothy
Lamour, Les Brown and his
Band of Renown, Lana Turner,
Sammy Davis, Jr., Rosemary
Clooney, and many more, in a
fast-paced musical theatre mem-
oir of the Greatest Generation
and beyond.
Pulling it all together is the
work of the executive producer,
FSU President T.K. Wetherell;
associate producer Donna
McHugh (assistant vice president
of university relations); and
director/playwrighi Mark


Marple.
According to Wetherell, "We

pus; from academics (School of
Theatre, College of Music, Film
School, Dance and more) to the
Boosters; from the FSU's Flying
High Circus to Student Affairs;
and from University Relations to
the University Center Club."
All proceeds will benefit the
FSU School of Theatre, College
of Music and Flying High
Circus.
According to Wetherell,"This
will be a true USO show, since
we will be providing complimen-
tary tickets to our aimed forces
and local veteran groups."

Local legend Pam Laws performs with Tabernacle Choir


In a stunning honor, TCC Professor
Pam Laws performed as a soloist with
the Mormon Tabernacle Choir at its
Sunday service in Salt Lake City, Utah,
on Oct. 29.
The performance was also broadcast
live oni the Choir's weekly program,
"Music and the Spoken Word," which
is carried by more than 2,000 television
and radio stations worldwide.
"I don't know if my 'TCC pride' or
my 'Tallahassee pride' is greater in
sharing Pam's selection," said TCC
President Bill Law, who travelled with
Laws to Salt Lake City.
The 360-member Mormon


Tabernacle Choir was founded in 1847,
one month after Mormon pioneers
entered the Salt Lake Valley. It is com-
pletely self-funded, traveling and pro-
ducing albums to support itself, and all
the members are volunteers.
In 1959, the Choir's recording of
"The Battle Hymn of the Republic"
earned a Grammy, followed over the
years by a number of gold and.platinum
records.
Its program "Music and the Spoken
Word" debuted in 1932 and is the old-
est continuous nationwide network
broadcast in the U.S. In 2004, the pro-
gram was inducted into the National


Association of Broadcasters Radio Hall
of Fame, one of only two radio pro-
grams to be so inducted; the other is the
Grand Ole Opry.
"I am broughtto my knees in humil-
ity," said Laws, who has taught at TCC
and performed in Tallahassee for 30
years. "If you're an opera singer, one
of the highest honors you can have is to
be invited to the Metropolitan Opera.
If you're a singer of hymns and spiritu-
als because by accident you were
raised in a black church in the South,
being invited to solo with the Mormon
Tabernacle Choir is like being invited
to sing at the Met."


Laws credits Tallahassee pianist
Marvin Goldstein, with whom she has
performed internationally, for the invi-
tation. Goldstein took Laws to record
in Salt Lake City last'"August and
brought her to the Choir's rehearsal,
where to her surprise she was asked
by its conductor, Dr. Craig Jessop, to
sing a song.
"She was floored," said Goldstein.
"She sang the Negro spiritual 'Nobody
Knows the Trouble I've Seen' and they
gave her a standing ovation." The
Choir then sang to Laws its traditional
"God. Be With You Until We Meet
Again." "It was unbelievable," said


Goldstein. "The best choir in the
whole universe singing to her."
"I give the glory to God," Laws said.
"My faith teaches me that I cannot cre-
ate a voice that others want to hear."
And Bill Law is thinking along the
same lines. "In the hectic, chaotic,
confusing times in which we live,
Pam's performance will be an oasis of
civility, culture and personal excel-
lence," he said. "I'm reminded of
Robert Browning's words: 'God's in
his heaven, all's right with the world.'"
You can listen to Laws' performance

Environmental quality

program application

deadline is Dec. 15


The 2007 Environmental
Quality Incentives Program
(EQIP) application period will
remain open until December
15, 2006, according to Jeffrey
Woods, Assistant State
Conservationist for the USDA-
Natural Resources
Conservation Service (NRCS)
in Florida.
EQIP is a key program under
the 2002 Farm Bill that pro-
vides federal cost-share funds
to working farms and ranches
for conservation improve-
ments. Like all NRCS pro-
grams, participation is volun-
tary.
Woods said for the last two
years, the deadline for the pro-
gram has been in December. "I
want to make sure those ranch-
ers and farmers who wish to
participate don't get busy with
fall work and miss the deadline.
"EQIP provides incentive
payments and cost-share funds
to private agricultural and live-
stock producers to implement
conservation practices," said
Woods. "It promotes agricultur-
al production and environmen-
tal quality as compatible goals.
And, it is extremely important
for producers to note that the
application deadline for the
2007 Program year is
December 15th."
According to Woods, the
early deadline is a continuing
effort to improve the funding
process.


The accelerated program
cut-off dates will allow produc-
ers time to complete practices
during the first years of their
contracts.
The earlier application dead-
line date will help accommo-
date field work in preparation
for a project to be done in the
fall as soon after they finish
with crop harvest, in most
cases.
"The accelerated process
makes coming in to our field
offices early to meet with the
NRCS staff more important
than ever," said Woods. "I
would encourage our farmers
and ranchers to come in and
visit with our staff now. We
know that producers that get in
early have more time to resolve
certain program or land eligi-
bility issues.
EQIP, like all NRCS pro-
grams, is a voluntary program
that is intended to yield high
quality, productive soils; clean
and abundant water; healthy
plant and animal communities;
clean air; an adequate energy
supply; and working farms and
ranchlands.
For more information on the
2007 EQIP program contact:

Jason Hayford at the Quincy
Field Office 850-627-4267

White squirrels
Few communities across the country can lay claim to white squirrels. Quincy is one of them. Frequently seen in the north end
of Quincy, they range out into the countryside a couple of miles. Gadsden County Times News Editor Leslie roberts caught this one
scampering up a utility pole.

.and how it works for yo
Over the years we've found our Bridal Registry Service to be one of the most appreciated
of all the services we offer our customers. It makes it easy for you to select the perfect
wedding or shower gift because you know it's exactly what the bride is looking for.
The engaged couple registers their preferences in china, crystal, flatware and giftware.
We record this and update the list, as gifts are purchased, to avoid duplicates.
Visit us the next time you're shopping for wedding or shower gifts. We'll help you select
a gift the bride really wants. Well even gift-wrap it. And the service is free!

My child is a

dreamer

Paul F. Joyner, Ph.D.

I do not believe that any
child has dreamed as did
Joseph of Bible note. The thing
that infuriated his brothers was
that all his dreams were self-
centered. If only he had had
the sense to keep his mouth
shut! But no, he had to tell his
Brothers all the details, with a
smug expression on his face,
* as if to say, "I may be just a


kid, but the day will come
when you will all look up, to
me!"
You remember, his sheaf of
wheat stood upright, while
those of his brothers bowed
before it. His father said:
"What is this dream thou hast
dreamed?
Shall I and
thy mother
and thy
brothers
intake, and at the first opportuni-
come to be a dreamer-to




look forward to the future, to




work towards its accomplish-
ment. Josephad'sad all teycould
take, and at the first opportuni-
ty, they sold him to a passing
caravan, one so its way to Egypt.
It is fine to be a dreamer-to
look forward to the future, to
work towards its accomplish-
ment. Joseph's dreamers came
true, and, in that providence of
God, tsephey probably would not
have done so if he had not
been such a boaster. Yet we
must conclude that his dreams
were divinely inspired, and it
is not every young man or
woman who is so "tuned to the
infinite". Joseph was a listener
as well as a dream mer.
I suspect that in this respect
Joseph was not far different
from today's teenagers, who
(at least in the eyes of one who
is much older) seem to give
themselves no time to LIS
TEN. Their math is studied to
the accompaniment of the lat-
est hit tunes, we can do ith the volume
turned to the maximum. When
they go for a hike through firsthe
countryside, or to the seaside
or to the mountains, they can-
not go to sleep in quietness.
Yet those young people must
somehow take time to dream,
to think, to plan. I guess the
bestthing we can do is to pray
that the batteries nfft"ru'f
out. After all, notfing is ever
accomplished without first a
dream.
I invite you to visit the
Berean Church located south
of the, old high school building
in Chattahoochee, FL. Dr.
Joyner may be contacted at
850-674-2633.


Pilot Club visit
Pilot Club of Quincy held its official friendship visit on the 24th
of October. Attending were Mary Emma Bassett, a former NRLG
and Virginia Bunde, our current Northwest Regional Lieutenant
Governor. We will also be participating in the Gretna Fun Day next
Saturday, November 4 for a helmet give-away.


National Teach-In highlights

Jamestown in special webcast


On Thursday, Nov. 9, classrooms across America'can see history
rise from mist and legend. The May 1607 settlement of Jamestown,
VA, will be brought to life by interactive webcast.
Arranged for students as a National Teach-In, Jamestown Live!
will provide a vivid, personal visit to the site, with exchanges
between students and people at the site. The hope is to create discus-
sion of a scene long considered "America's Birthplace", and explore
its legacy and relevance to today.
For Gadsden County students, there is added drama. The county
has been included as one of only a few locations outside Virginia to
partner in the Jamestown 2007 Community Program. High school
students at interested schools are being challenged to write essays
with Jamestown's 400th birthday as the theme and to compete for a
prize in February.
The Nov. 9 event, which is free and partly sponsored by the
History Channel, requires advance registration. Teachers wanting to
do this may visit www.Americas400thAnniversary.com.


Auditions for Gadsden

County Male Chorus set

Auditions for the Gadsden County Male Chorus will be held at
noon Saturday, Dec. 2 and 7 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 6. Call 850-284-

Life Line offers heart, diabetes blood tests


Life Line Screening, the
nation's leading provider of
mobile preventive health screen-
ings, is now offering two simple
blood tests to detect the risk of
heart disease and diabetes in the
state of Florida.
"The complications of these
diseases constitute the number
one cause of death in the United
States in both genders," said
Andrew Manganaro, M.D.,
medical director for Life Line
Screening. "In addition, the risk
factors, including diabetes,
hypertension, obesity, lack of
regular exercise, elevated cho-
lesterol and tobacco abuse,
among others, are extremely
common in the continental
United States,"
To make these important
screenings more convenient,
Life Line Screening has added
complete lipid panel and blood
glucose tests to its existing
screenings for stroke, vascular
disease, and osteoporosis.
Both tests are conducted with
just a single finger-stick sample
that uses only a few drops of
blood, and lab accurate results
are provided immediately. The
same equipment is used


QMT casts hom grown


talent for A Wonderful Life
Quincy Music Theatre recently held tudinons for its Dec. 1 pro-
duction of A Wonderful Life, a musical adaptation of America's
favorite holiday film classic sponsored by the Gadsden County
Times. Heading up the cast of this nostalgic musical will be Gadsden
County's own Jack Peacock as the unlikely hero, George Bailey.
Byron Spires of Gadsden fame will also play Bailey's arch nemesis,
Henry Potter (no relation to Harry). Potter, a perfect role for Mr.
Spires, conspires to undermine the Bailey Building and Loan while
George becomes trapped by the love of the caring and beautiful
Mary, played by Tennessee native Kendall Gibson.
A Wonderful Life has become a family affair with the casting of
the Schmidts (Grace, Austin, Chelsea, and Brianna) and the Mocks
(the ever-present Bill and Mike). A host of 18 other actors combine
to create a warm and caring town that rushes to the aid of a hero who
is not quite sure how lucky he is, until he sees it gone. A story of giv-
ing until it hurts and living the golden rule, A Wonderful Life is sure
to reflect the spirit of the holidays and the generosity of the people
of Gadsden County.
Tickets are on sale now for A Wonderful Life. Performances run
Dec 1-3 and 8-10. Tickets are $14 for Adults, $11 for Seniors, and $9
for students. Discounts available for groups of 10 or more. Log on to
QMT's website at http://www.qmtonline.com for. reservations, or

throughout physician offices,
pharmacies and hospitals
nationwide.
The new screening tests
include:
1. Complete Lipid Panel:
This comprehensive test meas-
ures four important levels total
cholesterol, LDL or "bad cho-
lesterol", HDL or "good choles-
terol" and triglycerides. High
levels of cholesterol, particular-
ly LDL, contribute to the forma-
tion of plaque on the artery
walls. Plaque is a major contrib-
utor to stroke risk and carotid
artery disease. It also can
restrict the flow of blood and
oxygen to the heart, which can
cause a heart attack. HDL is the
good kind of cholesterol
because it carries excess choles-
terol 'away from the arteries. A
high HDL level is protective
against cardiovascular disease.
A 10 percent decrease in total
blood cholesterol levels can
reduce the incidence of heart
disease by as much as 30 per-
cent. Knowing your cholesterol
levels can help you and your
physician develop a plan to pre-
vent heart disease:
2. Glucose: Glucose is a
measurement of the blood sugar
level and is used to determine a
person's risk of diabetes.
Diabetes is a disease in which
the body does not produce or
properly use insulin the hor-
mone needed to convert food
into energy. Diabetes is strong-
ly linked with stroke and heart
disease.
A glucose screening will
indicate if a person has "pre-dia-
betes." This occurs when a per-
son's blood glucose levels are
higher than normal but not high
enough for a diagnosis of dia-
betes. People with pre-diabetes
are at higher risk of stroke and
heart disease, but they can delay
or prevent the onset of type-2
diabetes through lifestyle
changes that reduce the glucose
levels.
Life Line Screening's stroke,
and vascular disease screenings
involve the use of ultrasound
technology, and scan for poten-
tial health problems related to:


blocked arteries which can lead
to a stroke, aortic aneurysms
which can lead to a ruptured
aorta, and hardening of the arter-
ies in the legs, which is also a
strong predictor of heart disease.
A bone density screening is
also available to assess the risk
for osteoporosis.
The cost for both of the new
blood tests is $60. When com-
bined with the complete well-
ness package which includes
screenings for stroke, abdominal
aortic aneurysms, peripheral
arterial disease and osteoporo-
sis, participants can receive all 6
tests for $179.

Life Line Screening was
established in 1993, and has
since become the nation's lead-
ing provider of vascular screen-
ings. Over 75 ultrasound teams
are on staff to travel to your
local community, bringing the
screenings to you. These screen-
ings help people identify their
risk for stroke, vascular dis-
eases, heart disease, diabetes, or
osteoporosis early enough for
their physician to begin preven-
tive procedures.
To locate a screening in your
area, please contact our cus-
tomer service department at 1-
877-237-1354.

FACTS AND STATS
Complete Lipid Panel
Cholesterol is a waxy fat that
is carried through the blood
stream by lipoproteins.
LDL= low-density lipopro-
teins (bad cholesterol)
HDL= high-density lipopro-
teins (good cholesterol)
A 10% decrease in total
blood cholesterol levels can
reduce the incidence of heart
disease by as much as 30%.
Total cholesterol less than
200 mg/dL, LDL less than 130
mg/dL and HDL greater than 40
mg/dL are desirable levels.
LDL and triglycerides
require an 8 hour fasting period
(no calorie intake).
Total cholesterol and HDL
measurements do not require
fasting.
C-Reactive Protein


C-reactive protein is a non-
specific marker for inflamma-
tion in the body. It is released
into the bloodstream in response
to an infection or injury or if the
blood vessels to the heart are
weakened.
Since almost half of all heart
attacks affect apparently healthy
adults with normal or even low
cholesterol levels, it is important
to know your CRP levels in
addition to your cholesterol lev-
els.
A new test for high-sensitivi-
ty C-reactive protein (hs-CRP)
can detect elevated levels of
CRP in healthy, asymptomatic
adults.
In 2003, the American Heart
Association and the Centers for
Disease Control and Prevention
published cardiovascular risk
levels for the hs-CRP test. A
value less than 3 nrg. L is desir-
able.,
Fasting is not required for the
hs-CRP test.
Glucose (Diabetes Risk)
More than 20 million
Americans have diabetes, but
nearly 1 in 3 does not know it.
Diabetes is strongly linked
with cardiovascular disease,
including stroke and heart dis-
ease.
Strokes and heart attacks are
2-4 times more common in dia-
betics, occur at a younger age,
and have a much greater death
rate.
Diabetes is the leading cause
of blindness in adults 20-74
years of age and the leading
cause of kidney failure in the
U.S.
Fasting glucose levels should
be below 100 mg/dL.
Non-fasting glucose levels
should be below 200 mg/dL.

know that my donation will

feel good to give. I visit this
area often and donate here
every time I can.

Life Line Screening

offering heart disease,

diabetes blood tests

Life Line Screening, the nation's
leading provider of mobile preventive
health screenings, is now offering two
simple blood tests to detect the risk of
heart disease and diabetes in the state
of Florida.
"The complications of these dis-
eases constitute the number one cause
of death in the United States in both
genders," said Andrew Manganaro,
M.D., medical director for Life Line
Screening.
"In addition, the risk factors,
including diabetes, hypertension, obe-
sity, lack of regular exercise, elevated
cholesterol and tobacco abuse, among


others, are extremely common in the
continental United States,"
To make these important screenings
more convenient. Life Line Screening
has added complete lipid panel and
blood glucose tests to its existing
screenings for stroke, vascular disease,
and osteoporosis.
Both tests are conducted with just a
single finger-stick sample that uses
only a few drops of blood, and lab
accurate results are provided immedi-
ately.
The same equipment is used
throughout physician offices, pharma-
cies and hospitals nationwide.
The new screening tests include:
1. Corhplete Lipid Panel: This
comprehensive test measures four
important levels total cholesterol,
LDL or "bad cholesterol", HDL or
"good cholesterol" and triglycerides.
High levels of cholesterol, particularly
LDL, contribute to the formation of


plaque on the artery walls. Plaque is a
major contributor to stroke risk and
carotid artery disease. It also can
restrict the flow of blood and oxygen
to the heart, which can cause a heart
attack. HDL is the good kind of cho-
lesterol because it carries excess cho-
lesterol away from the arteries. A high
HDL level is protective against cardio-
vascular disease.
A 10 percent decrease in total blood
cholesterol levels can reduce the inci-
dence of heart disease by as much as
30 percent. Knowing your cholesterol
levels can help you and your physician
develop a plan to prevent heart dis-
ease.
2. Glucose: Glucose is a measure-
ment of the blood sugar level and is
used to determine a person's risk of
diabetes. Diabetes is a disease in
which the body does not produce or
properly use insulin -, the hormone
needed to convert food into energy.


Diabetes is strongly linked with stroke
and heart disease.
A glucose screening will indicate if
a person has "pre-diabetes." This
occurs when a person's blood glucose
levels are higher than normal but not
high enough for a diagnosis of dia-
betes. People with pre-diabetes are at
higher risk of stroke and heart disease,
but they can delay or prevent the onset
of type-2 diabetes through lifestyle
changes that reduce the glucose levels.
Life Line Screening's stroke, and
vascular disease screenings involve
the use of ultrasound technology, and
scan for potential health problems
related to: blocked arteries which can
lead to a stroke, aortic aneurysms
which can lead to a ruptured aorta, and
hardening of the arteries in the legs,
which is also a strong predictor of
heart disease.
A bone density screening is also
available to assess the risk for osteo-


porosis.
The cost for both of the new blood
tests is $60. When combined with the
complete wellness package which
includes screenings for stroke, abdom-
inal aortic aneurysms, peripheral arte-
rial disease and osteoporosis, partici-
pants can receive all 6 tests for $179.
Life Line Screening was estab-
lished in 1993, and has since become
the nation's leading provider of vascu-
lar screenings.
Over 75 ultrasound teams are on
'staff to travel to your local communi-
ty, bringing the screenings to you.
These screenings help people identify
their risk for stroke, vascular diseases,
heart disease, diabetes, or osteoporosis
early enough for their physician to
begin preventive procedures.
To locate a screening in your area,
please contact our customer service
department at 1-877-237-1354.

You may take it for granted, but humans have not always had the convenience of looking oown at their wrist watch to see
what time it is. Clocks are a great invention, helping people to keep track of trihe time, allowing them to plan and order teri day, and in
some cases even helping medical professionals to do their jobs. Clocks have become an important tool, as well as a part of history, and
while we have not always had the modem watch, clocks have been around for centuries.
A clock, by Jipriiioi., is a device that measures time. For this reason, clocks were not necessarily always a typical clock, that we think of
today. There are many different types of clocks; analog clocks, digital clocks, sundials, star clocks, binary clocks, water clocks, hourglass
clocks, wind-up clocks, :ui.- or-. i-:ocl s grandfather clocks, tower clocks, and many more. The word clock was derived from the Latin word,
"cloca", which means 'bell'. Origir a'l,. all clocks were supposed to have a bell, or a sound that would signal that the time had changed, usually in one hour intervals. One
of the earliest known types of clocks was the sundial. The sundial measured time by comparing the movement of the sun, and its shadow on the flat, round surface of the
sundial. Though there is no real proof on who invented it, it was used by many ancient cultures, including the Egyptians, Chinese, and the Arabians. Another type of
ancient clock was a star clock. Ancient astronomers used the stars and their movements to measure time. This was used especially by sailors. In medieval times clocks
were also used, mainly in towers and churches, due to their sheer expense. Theses were often water clocks, which used water to measure the time. It wasn't until the
1800 and 1900's that the clock became inexpensive enough to begin being used in people's homes. The clock became more affordable at this time due to different
:buiding techniques. At this time, what we recognize today as a clock, with a twelve hour face and two moving hands, along with wood faces, is what contributed to its
affordability. The clock as we know it today was born,. 7,, ^ &, -, C t

RFM Fun Night Filled with Activity

The Robert F. Munroe Day School cheerleaders sponsored Fun Night on Oct. 6 at the school.
The activities included a Powder Puff football game that pitted the senior and sophomore girls
against the juniors and freshmen girls. The Junior-Freshmen team proved to be superior. Supper
was sold in the Grant student center prior to the game kick off. Cow Bingo closed the family night
as one of the cheerleader's aunts won the bingo prize of $500. The funds from the events are being
used to defray the cost of new cheer mats for the gym. The bingo grid was drawn by the math
classes earlier in the day. Pictured are Casey Gray with Coach Adam Reep working on the bingo
grid.

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
event was "Healthy Lifestyles
Luau". The grandparents
enjoyed a delicious lunch of
Fried and Baked Chicken with
all the trimmings. We also had
special activities that included:
Health Booths, Healthy Food
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
grandparents and special friends
that came out to celebrate this
annual event.

St. John second graders' adventure


Mrs. Elaine Anderson's class
On August 14, the Rocketeers ship landed at St.John Elementary School. The second graders, sec-
tion four, class of Mrs. E. Anderson opened their rocket doors and began Open Court. Little did they
know, they were about to begin an adventure. As they stepped out of their rockets they began to explore
the concept of the word "Sharing". They discussed their ideas and offered their opinions for the mean-
ing of the word. Some students even took a leap forward and gave examples of how they displayed acts
of sharing.
We decided to follow the stars and saw the bright light named "Kindness." It was amazing how our
eyes lit up as we discussed what the word meant to us personally. As our hearts warmed and we clari-
fied the meaning of bothwords "Sharing and Kindness" we knew the road to Courage was soon to
come. Stay tuned St. John Elementary School second graders section four Rocketeers as we move for-
ward to lesson four. But before we close our rocket doors, think of the word "Kindness" and think of at
least ,one kind word and an act of kindness that you displayed to your fellowman.

George W. Munroe
makes math gains
Ethelyn Cunningham,
Principal of George W. Munroe
Elementary School (GWMES),
is proud to announce that its stu-
dents made the second greatest
math gains among all Gadsden

Mrs. Cunningham states that
GWMES has recently adopted a

by a company based in Miami,
Florida. Mrs. Cunningham
believes that this intensive
FCA.T ie.'iew program has ben-
efited GWMES students. "We
feel that our children deserve
the best, and by giving them
extra practice in math skills, we
have found that our children
will thrive", stated Mrs.

Dear Editor:
Fifty-five percent of all of those killed in traffic
crashes across America durmn the Thanksgiving
holiday weekend* last year 4rere not wearing their
seat belts at the time of the crash according to the
National Highway Traffic Safety Administration
(NHTSA). gP
That's why Chattahoochee Police Department
will be out in force this Thanksgiving weekend
with a strong "Click It or Ticket" message and will
be cracking down on both drivers and passengers
not wearing their seat belts. The heavily-traveled
Thanksgiving weekend is one of the most danger-
ous and deadliest times of the year due to low seat
belt use. Although a record 82 percent of
Americans now wear their seat belts, up from 58
percent in 1994, too many people still do not.
According to NHTSA, 31,415 passenger vehicle
occupants died in traffic crashes during 2005 and
more than half of those killed were NOT wearing
their seat belts at the time of the crash.
According to NHTSA, observed seat belt use for
passengers in the back seats of vehicles was only 68

percent, compared to 82 percent for those riding in
front seats. Another important challenge is raising
seat belt use on rural roadways and among pickup
truck occupants. Last year, observed seat belt use
among pickup truck drivers and passengers was
only 73 percent, compared to an 82 percent nation-
al belt use average in all passenger vehicles.
Too many people, especially young male driv-
ers, teens, pickup truck drivers and passengers, and
folks of all ages riding in the back seats of vehicles
still take the attitude that a deadly crash will never
happen to them. But deadly crashes can and do hap-
pen every day.
Because law enforcement officials have seen
first hand the severe injury and death that comes
from low seat belt use, they will be out in force
working this issue hard throughout the
Thanksgiving weekend.
Unless you want to risk a ticket or worse, your
life please remember to 'Click It or Ticket' this
holiday weekend.

Don't become a victim of

staged auto accidents


Peanut butter has been a
pantry and sandwich staple in
households for generations.
However, this beloved American
icon is more than a spread des-
tined .to partner with jelly.
Peanut butter is also a nutrient-
dense food that is sometimes
overlooked as part of a healthy
lifestyle. Incorporating peanut
butter into a variety of dishes
and snacks can help add impor-
tant nutrients to one's diet. One
serving of peanut butter-just
two tablespoons-provides
eight grams of protein, two
grams of fiber, 10 percent of the
Reference Daily Intake (RDI) of
vitamin E and 12 percent of the
RDI of magnesium. Additional-
ly, theUSDA's new MyPyramid
recognizes the importance of
varying dietary protein sources
and suggests that peanut butter,
along with nuts and other nut
butters, may be substituted for
meat or. poultry in meals.
Additionally, peanut butter is
cholesterol free and contains
zero grams of transfats per serv-
ing. A walk down the grocery
store aisle reveals a wide selec-
tion ofpeanut butters to meet dif-
ferent tastes and dietary needs.

and reduced-fat varieties Thimk.
outside the sandwich and spread
peanut butter on apple slices for
a delicious snack, put a dollop in
yogurt or even stir into hot oat-
meal. Peanut butter can also be
the basis of sauces that can turn
plain noodles or chicken into a
delightfully exotic dish, as in
this recipe for Asian Noodles
with Chili-Nut Sauce: 3table-
spoons Adams Natural
Crunchy Peanut Butter, Jif
Extra Crunchy or Simply Jif
Peanut Butter, 1/4cup reduced-
sodium soy sauce; 1-2 table-
spoons Chinese chili oil; 1/4cup
rice vinegar; 2 tablespoons dark
brown sugar; 1(10-ounce) pack-
age Chinese wheat noodles or
1/2-pound package whole wheat
spaghetti, cooked according to
package directions; 4 green
onions, sliced diagonally into
1/4-inch slices; 1/2 cup chopped
red bell pepper; Toasted sesame
seeds for garnish.
Combine peanut butter,
soysauce, chili oil, rice vinegar
andbrown sugar in a large bowl.
Stir to blend well. Toss drained
noodles with chili-nut sauce,
I, onions and peppers. Cool noo-
dles to room temperature. To
serve, place noodles on serving-
platter, garnish with sesame-
seeds. For a variation, add 2
cups chopped cooked chicken.

TCC publications

receive top honors

Both of Tallahassee Community College's stu-
dent publications the Eyrie literary magazine and
the Talon newspaper took top honors at the
Florida Community College Press Association
awards recently in Fort Lauderdale.
In addition to winning for general excellence in
their categories, the Talon won 13 individual


awards and the Eyrie 10.
"I think it really says something that both the
newspaper and literary magazine at TCC are first
in the state," said Josh Salman, the Talon's execu-
tive editor.
"The awards simply back up the fact that TCC
is blessed with a student population that is very
talented in many different areas: poetry, fiction,
non-fiction, graphic art and photography," said
Julia Horigan, who advised the Eyrie on its
entries. "I always knew this, but it's nice when
experts in the field agree with you." Judges for the


awards included a Pulitzer Prize-winning photog-
rapher for the Miami Herald.
The College's professors, administrators and
student editors all credit the dedication of staffers
for the FCCPA recognition.
"These students are working here at night and
on weekends to produce quality publications,"
said Marge Banocy-Bayne, dean of the Division
of Communications and Humanities, which pro-
vides classes, professors, equipment and budget
for the publications.
"TCC has a lot of talent that people aren't


aware of, and this award is a statement to that
effect," said Talon advisor Dana Peck. "The
breadth on the staff is really admirable."
Studies show that students in extracurricular
programs perform better academically, said
Banocy-Payne. Salman said that working on the
Eyrie or Talon gives students a professional
advantage whether they win awards or not.
"It teaches them how to work as a staff," he
said, "so when they go to get a real job, they have
more experience."



In light of the growing num-
ber of auto insurance fraud-
related arrests around the coun-
try, here's a crash course on how
to spot staged accidents and
other fraudulent activities relat-
ed to phony auto claims.
First, know that staging acci-
dents, providing unnecessary
medical treatments for faked
injuries and counterfeit medical
mills are all illegal. Here are
some tips for drivers from
GEICO investigators to help
you stay alert:
*If you have an accident, be
sure to call the police to the
scene. Beware of anyone who is
anxious to leave quickly before
police arrive.
*Record names, addresses,
license plate numbers, witness
information, and any other facts
you think might be important.
*Keep a disposable camera in
your vehicle to take photos of
the vehicles involved and the
accident scene.
*Do not tailgate-criminals
will brake unexpectedly in front
of tailgaters to intentionally
cause an accident. Look out for
vehicles that brake suddenly for
no apparent reason.
*Look out for large, older

class. (Photo by Monica Fitzsimmons)


World champs

Continued from Pae B1

the race: A world championship title for winning the
Unlimited class. He returned home to Sneads, where he
owns Fitzsimmons Automotive, with a huge trophy and a
bigger grin.
"I still get goose bumps when I think about it,"
Fitzsimmons said Wednesday. "It's just a feeling you can't
describe when you win it's good."
The Unlimited class is the fastest in the event. Boats in
that class are also allowed any fuel configuration and can
use either turbochargers or blowers or nitrous oxide.
"We generally run around 125mph in the quarter-mile
at around 9 seconds," Fitzsimmons said.
Both men swear by the boats they won in McClellan
won his title in the Allison River Racer he bought two
months ago, Fitzsimmons, in an Allison Drag Racer.
Allison race models come standard with racing pulley-
cable steering with aluminum sport steering wheel with
two trim switches. The standard jack plate includes a
choice of the 5-6", 6" racing positive tilt (for short shaft
with racing trim), 6X8 short shaft, or F- racing (F-1 mid-
section) to suit the driver's set-up preferences, and a drag
cowl with an optional ram air induction kit available to
duct air directly into the engine cowl for extra power.
McClellan, who works at McClellan Funeral Home,
grew up boating on the Apalachicola River. He ian in the
Unlimited class early "My mother had to sign a waiver
so I could run. I was 14," he said and joined ODBA at
the beginning of this year. He raced in the Lake Racer
class and came in seventh in the Chattahoochee ODBA
race in April. Deciding the boat he was racing was too
heavy, he bought the Allison River Racer and ran two
classes with it before winning the championship.
"It goes about 117 miles per hour in a quarter-mile
race," he said.
Boats in the Pro Gas class.can have any hull configura-
tion and V-6 or V-8 engines. Motor modifications are


allowed, but not the use of nitrous oxide or any other type
bottle pressure injection. McClellan runs a Mercury 2.5
drag motor 300 h.p. plus.
"A lot of people helped me I'd like to give special
thanks to my father Charles and to Talmadge," McClellan
said. "My cousin Scott Roberson in Thomasville helped
me a lot, and Mike Mullis in Quincy helped me with rig-
ging and set up."
Fitzsinmnons came in second in his class at the April
Chattahoochee race. He's been racing professionally for
six years and "racing and playing on the river a lot
longer."
He's still awed by his win in Jasper.
"I was surprised at the people who called me from all
over some have raced 15 years and never won a world
championship," he said. "The people who are in it are just
real good even the people you outrun come over and
congratulate you. It's a good sport."
During the three-day tourney, Fitzsimmons made five
passes and ran undefeated in the double-elimination com-
petition.
He, too, got a lot of support from family and friends.
"Racing involves a lot of work before and after you get
to the race site and usually a pretty long road trip. My wife
Monica has supported me all the way through," he said. "I
have a very good friend, Charles Davis from Altha, who
has been with me to every race, helps me get everything
done before and after each race. Also, there are other
friends who either help me or travel to support me at a
race Gary McIntosh, Larry Johnson and John Gore.
Most of the time many friends and family go with us to a
race. Whether these guys help me in the weeks prior to a
race, testing, working on the boat or go to the race, they
support me in many ways."
Leach said he expects the ODBA will kick off the 2007
season in Chattahoochee again.
"Absolutely we love that race," he said. "We get a real
good turnout there."

To cosign or not to cosign:
Take Charge America
describes 4 facts every
cosigner needs to know

Did you know that three out of four
cosigners are ultimately asked to repay
the loan?
That's according to the Federal
Trade Commission, which also reports
that in most states, if you cbsign a loan
for someone who misses a payment,
the lender can immediately collect
from you without first pursuing the
borrower.


Mike Sullivan, director of education
for Take Charge America, a national
non-profit credit counseling agency,
says problems often arise when the
cosigner and borrower do not have a
complete understanding of what
cosigning entails.
"We find that families and friends
often cosign for their loved ones with-
out reading the fine print," he said.
"Cosigning is more than helping some-
one qualify for a loan. A cosigner is
ultimately telling the lender that he or
she is responsible for the loan."


Sullivan describes four facts every
cosigner needs to know:
Once you cosign, there's no
going back. A cosigner cannot
change his or her mind mid-way
through the term of the loan.
Unexpected events like job loss and
divorce need to be taken into consider-
ation before signing on the dotted line.
Cosigning a loan may prevent you
from obtaining credit for yourself. If
you cosign a loan, the loan amount is
counted as one of your obligations.
That liability could prevent you from
qualifying for another loan or line of


credit.
A cosigner could be forced to pay
more than the loan amount. If the
borrower skips a payment or can't pay
the loan, late fees and collection costs
can also be forwarded to the cosigner.
If legal action is needed to obtain the
money, cosigners may also have to pay
for attorney fees.
A cosigner's wages and property
can be garnished if the lender sues and
wins. If you do cosign a loan, be sure
that you have the financial backing to
pay off the loan without going into
debt. Failing to repay the loan or fees


will negatively affect your credit
score.
Sullivan says if you do decide to
cosign a loan, there are steps you can
take to protect yourself.
"Contracts and other legal docu-
ments are referenced when disputes
arise, so it's important that both the
borrower and cosigner have copies of
everything," he said. "Cosigners can
protect themselves further by asking
the lender to notify them in writing if
the borrower ever misses a payment.
That could prevent a trail of extra
fees."
