Commission


suspends


TDC


operations

by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
The Board of County Conmmissioners
suspended further operations of the Tourist
Development Council until the council's by-
laws and other policies can be revisited Tuesday
night during the regular meeting.
The administrative functions of the council
were transferred to the community development
office in August of this year.
Farnita Saunders, Director of Community
Development, said that about $18,000 in grants
had been awarded. The trouble was, according
to Saunders, the TDC had no provisions for
awarding grants.
Saunders said the $18,000 in already
incumbered funds would be paid but the
infrastructure of the TDC needed further study.
"We need to look at the TDC's spending plans.
They need to be revisited and revised," she said.
"We need to look at contracts that the TDC
has entered into. The TDC has a contract with
the Chamber of Commerce. They have no
authority to enter into a contract. Any contract
needs to be entered into with the Board," she
said.
Also, Saunders said the community
development office needs to make sure there is
no conflict of interest with the members of the
TDC and other organizations to which they
belong.
"We need to step back and take a look at how
this organization functions. This is a very
serious issue, we're talking about tax dollars,"
said County Manager Marlon Brown.
Jim Kellum of Havana said there are nine
people on the TDC board and they all are hard
working people. "I want to establish that
Havana is not a stepchild. The TDC was never
supposed to be divided up so that each city got
the same amount of money. I don't want the
issue tonight to be that the TDC did something
wrong. I don't want our credit to go bad because
vendors don't get paid. We can't even get a
phone call returned from county employees," he
said.
The problem, said Lori Ryan owner of the
Mockingbird Cafe in Havana, is that vendors
who extended credit for various things

Croley wins, health tax loses


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
It was a surprise to no one that
Gadsden County went Democratic in
Tuesday's general election. While
there was only one local seat up for
grabs, Board of County Commission
District 2, the outcome was no surprise
either.
Democrat Doug Croley walked away
2, 419 votes defeating Jim Kellum and
Don White (both with no party
affiliation) by 772 and 323 votes
respectively.
The" half-cent sales tax for the
county's uninsured and underinsured
was defeated when 7,192 voters
rejected it. Another 6,216 supported
the referendum.
Supervisor of Elections Shirley
Green Knight said the election went
off without a hitch. "We didn't have
any problems. I'm thrilled that the
voter turnout was 50 per cent," she
said.
Of the 28,098 registered voters in the
county, 14,115 ballots were cast.
This is how Gadsden County voted
in all races:
Governor: Charlie Crist (Rep), 4,544,
32.40%; Jim Davis (Dem), 9,288,

Urgent Care Center opens Dec. 18


4 doctors, 2

practitioners

to staff facility

by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
It's the Christmas present Gadsden
County has been hoping to get. The
Urgent Care Center Unit will open on
December 18 in the former emergency
room at Gadsden Community
Hospital.
Corey Fleming, an administrator for
Tallahassee Memorial Healthcare,
made the announcement Tuesday night
during the regular meeting of the
Board of County Commissioners. "I
put my name on it (the date) and I
stand by it," Fleming said.
"Are you sure?" asked Commission
Chairman Ed Dixon, twice.
"Yes" said Fleming both times.


Crash kills

Quincy

man

by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
A 62-year-old Gadsden County
man, Spencer Lee Smiley, was
killed in a traffic accident
Saturday night around 8 p.m.
According to a report released
by the Florida Highway Patrol,
Smiley was traveling southbound
on State Road 267 in the outside
lane in a 1997 Mercury SUV.
The vehicle left the road on the
west shoulder and collided with
two road signs. After colliding
with the signs, the vehicle began
rotating counter clockwise,
ending up on the left side of State
Road 267.
Passengers injured in the
accident were Ja'Miley Price,
seven-months-old and Mazariah
Hogue, 3-years-old. Both were
taken to Tallahassee Memorial
Hospital and treated for minor
injuries. Another passenger in the
car, Shonta L. Jones, 25, was not
injured.
The report stated that Smiley
was not wearing a seatbelt at the
time of the accident.


One .of the main hurdles in getting
the unit open was the hiring of
physicians. "We now have four
physicians who will work on a rotating
basis and we have two practitioners.
Two of the
physicians are

EGHS coach looks for wins in the classroom, too!


by LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor
East Gadsden High School
head football coach Scott
Anderson wants his team to win
on the field and in the class-
room.
When he took over the post
of head coach in the fall, he also
took over a study hall after
school for football players. In
talking with principal Dr.
William Harvey and athletic
director Andy Gay, he saw par-
ticipation in Florida A & M
University's Upward Bound
program as a way to build on
students' academic successes.
"Coach Gay had done it at
Shanks and had a favorable
view. It really helped us from a
manpower standpoint most of
my coaches are not in the build-
ing," Anderson said.
The entire team meets for
Upward Bound four days a
week after school, with FAMU
educators teaching a variety of
schools.
"They do a lot of things with
test prep for standardized tests,
tutoring some days we just did
homework," he said. "The feed-
back we've gotten has been very
positive there were some guys
in dire straits who pulled a 3.0.
The whole team is involved -
that's my requirement just like
the class checks we do we do
things as a team."

To stay on top of students'
academic performance,
Anderson conducts "class
checks" periodically by sending
students to class with a paper on
which teachers are asked to note
the student's conduct, effort and
attitude as well as his grades.
"It's a way we try to monitor
between report cards what's
going on. We're trying to be
proactive instead of reactive,"
he said.
Anderson said school offi-
cials are considering including
all student athletes in FAMU's
Upward Bound program.
"We're just looking to make
positive strides with our stu-
dents first of all, and by making
positive strides with our stu-


dents, that's going to make us
great," he said. "We need to con-
tinue to see positive results in
the classroom as well as positive
results on and off the field, and
things will take care of them-
selves. We didn't accomplish as
much as we planned to or hoped
to this season the next three to
five months of the off-season are
going to be very, very important
to us as far as what we do on the
field and improving academical-
ly as well."
But it may be that one of the
biggest motivators for team
members is Anderson's habit of
practicing what he preaches.
Anderson, now 46, was a
walk-on at Georgia Tech when
medical problems unrelated to


Manco P

Bell & Bates,

lined him. He became a student
coach, and graduated with a
bachelor's degree in aerospace
engineering. He then earned a
master's of education in kinesi-
ology at the University of Texas,
and built an impressive resume
over the years: graduate assis-
tant coach at the University of
California, two years at
Southern Illinois University as
outside linebacker coach, a year
at West Texas State as line-
backer coach, four years at Duke
University as running back
coach, a year at Navarro Junior
College as head coach, six years
as offensive coach at Kentucky


State and three years as offen-
sive coordinator and quarter-
back coach at Indiana State.
In the two years prior to com-
ing to EGHS, he taught math at
Robert E. Lee High School iln
Jacksonville while coaching
football at Sandalwood High.
At East Gadsden, he does
both.
"This was an opportunity t6
be a head coach at a place I felt
could be very successful," he
said. "Strong positive adminis-
trative support, from
Superintendent James to Coach
Gay that coupled with the cal-
iber athletes in Gadsden County
is what drew me."

Contemplation u ,,




They've worn me down!


A few years ago someone asked me if
I had caller ID, call waiting, three-way
calling and all that stuff on my
telephone. I said no, because if
someone called and I didn't want to
talk I could easily tell them, free of
charge, that I didn't want to talk.
That was before the new breed of
telemarketers. I found that you can't
tell those people "no, I don't want any"
and they will hang up and go away.
Not these new pests. Nothing will stop
them.
As time went on, however, I decided
to get these features on my home
telephone. Quite frankly, the
telemarketers had worn me down and
rather than play games that I didn't
have the time or inclination to play
anymore, I paid the fee monthly. I can
now screen my calls. I do not answer
"unknown name," unknown number"
or "toll free numbers" because I have
found they are usually trouble.
I thought that once you called that
800 number, I don't remember what it
was right now, and tell them that you
don't want calls from solicitors, your
number was off limits. I guess my
name must have gone off the list
because for the last few months I have
gotten three or four calls each night
from the "unknowns" and the "toll
frees."
Last week, I got a most disturbing
call from Fairfield Resorts. The young
man said he had gotten my name from
a relative and he wanted to.offer me a
vacation. As politely as I'could.I .
thanked him for the call and said I
wasn't interested. He wasn't going to
take "no" for an answer. He went on to
say, it must have been the psychic in


lunker down

with

ICes


him, that he could tell that I really
needed a vacation.
After another 30 seconds I said
goodbye. He called right back. "I know
why your relative said you need a
vacation" he said in a tone that was
none too pleasant. I told him to get off
my telephone and hung up. He called
right back two or three more times in
succession.
I didn't bother to answer when
"Fairfield Resorts" popped up on my
called ID. I knew it was the
telemarketer from hell. I also knew
that if I'talked or listened to him one
more time I would have been ready to
track him down and strangle him right
there in his little cubicle.
Not all telemarketers are bad. I have
had wonderful conversations with
telemarketers. I have gotten tips on
places to dine, places to go for
entertainment and more from
telemarketers who call. Earlier this
year a telemarketer called the office. I
think he thought he was calling a
private home, when I asked him where
he was calling from and he told me
Charlotte, NC. As fate would have it, I
was planning a trip to Charlotte, I had
never been to Charlotte before and he
gave me some great tips.
No matter how many good
experiences you've had with
telemarketers, if your caller ID reads
"Fairfield Resorts" don't answer. I beg
you, don't answer. I care far too much
for my readers not to warn them of this
impending danger.

Note: Fairfield Inns, owned by the
Mariott Hotel chain, is not the same
company as Fairfield Resorts.

Got over to Gretna this weekend for

City Manager Antonio Jefferson told

city hopes to solve before another year

"The DEP thing has stifled the city's
growth now I think we're in a
position where we've got enough
potential growth where we can build
the infrastructure, support the growth
and ultimately, the growth will pay for
itself. Eventually those things we've
done without will become a reality
here."
It's not just government entities and

which officially adopted the slogan,
"Come Grow With Us" in September -
see some improvements.

I came along in January, 1947; part of
the infamous "baby boomer" class. I
had the best childhood a person could
imagine. I knew nothing of K-rations,
War Bonds, low aerial bombings, yellow
jaundice, kamikazes, island hoping, Hara
Kari, snipers, imperialism or the Bataan
death march.'
Daddy was more interested in getting
the fence row clean. And the cows fed.
And the hay cut. He didn't even say
anything when me and David Mark (who
joined the family September 14, 1948)
would take those pins and ribbons off
that old green coat in his closet and stick
them on our t-shirts.
I tell you what he would do. When the
American flag passed by on the Fourth of
July nobody in the whole town stood
more still than my Father. And when the
high school band struck up their rather
weak rendition of the Star Spangled
Banner he throwed his cap up to his heart
and I never saw him stand taller, or
prouder!
I was a junior in college in 1968 when
he stopped by the campus to pay me a
visit. As he was leaving he saw a
Japanese student walking across the
common. "What's he doing here?" The
anger in his voice was immediate and
vociferous. Before I could answer, he
added, "Does he work in the kitchen?"
I thought he was going to make me quit
school! The war had been over for
twenty years for goodness sakes.....
But not for my Father! It took a while
for it to all sink in. Just because he
wouldn't talk to me about it didn't mean
it had somehow "gone away". Those
flashes of foxholes and air raids and
predawn invasions and midnight attacks
were as fresh as this morning to him! As
were the companions he'd left face down
in gosh awful far away places like New
Guinea and Biak and Palawan.....

6 drug arrests after GCSO steps up patrol


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

In the days following a homicide at
Parkview Manor Apartments, Sheriff
Morris A. Young told deputies he want-
ed to "step up" the presence of law
enforcement in the public housing com-
plex.
That increased presence led to six
arrests last week. Two of those arrests
were made following a high-speed
chase that ended in Sawdust
Community with deputies chasing and
arresting a man on foot who had been
conditionally released from prison on
:October 28 for attempted second
degree murder and carrying a con-
cealed firearm.
According to Lt. Jim Corder,
deputies on routine patrol saw Derrick
"Jabo" Lamont Williams and Van
McCloud sitting in a car that was
backed into a parking spot. The deputy
recognized McCloud as an individual
for whom they had several open war-
rants.
"As the officer approached,
McCloud put the car in reverse and
sped away, backing all of the way out

of the parking lot at a high rate of speed
onto Atlanta Street," Corder said.
The pair was cornered on Carolina
Street and McCloud, 20, jumped out of
the car and into the arms of waiting
deputies. Williams, 29, jumped out of
the car with a .22-caliber revolver in his
hand and headed for the woods.
Corder said he ran about a half-mile
before he was finally caught. Deputies
found baggies and a scale, thought for
weighing marijuana, inside the car.
McCloud was wanted on charges of
Failure to Appear and possession of
marijuana, domestic violence, and
stalking. He was also charged with


Kenchard L. Dainels


felony fleeing and eluding, no valid dri-
ver's license, reckless driving, posses-
sion of a controlled substance, and pos-
session of paraphernalia.
Williams was charged with posses-
sion of a firearm by a convicted felon.
Last Wednesday afternoon
Kenchard L. Daniels, 4290 Hosford
Highway, was charged with possession
of crack cocaine with intent to sell and
possession of marijuana with intend to
sell after two investigators saw him sit-
ting on an orange crate in front of one
of the apartment buildings at Parkview
Manor.
Under the crate that Daniels was sit-

ting on, investigators noticed a pill bot-
tle that contained several pieces of
crack cocaine and a clear plastic cigar
box.
More cocaine was found in the cigar
box. After Daniels was handcuffed and
placed in the car officers said they
noticed him "twitching and moving
around". A check of the area where
Daniels was sitting revealed a plastic
bag with 16 individually wrapped plas-
tic bags that contained marijuana.
That same day Williams G.

Sheriff: be on the


lookout for scams,


thieves as holiday


season approaches
.4-.
by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

With holidays just around the corner Gadsden
County Sheriff Morris Young advises citizens to be on
the lookout for scams, home invasions and purse snatch-
ings.
"The holidays bring out the worst in some people.
The main thing is for people to use common sense year
round, but at this time of the year (now through
Christmas) it is really important,". he said.
For the past two years, he said, he has encouraged cit-
izens to participate in neighborhood watch programs.
"Whether they know it or not, nothing works better than
a good neighbor who looks out for you. The sheriff's
department cannot be everywhere. We need the eyes and
ears of the public to help us deoour jobs," he said.
The next best thing to a neighborhood watch program
is to use "common sense." To reduce the risk of becom-
ing the victim of a crime, stay in well-lighted area.
"A lot of people are going to start shopping in the
next few weeks. Actually, it i,5 best if they don't shop
alone, but if they have to go alone park as close to the
store as possible and don't carry so many packages that
you have to fumble for keys. There are people out there
waiting to rip you off. Just as we have a job, that's their
job and they are on the lookout for easy marks," Young
said.
When you leave home it is important to make sure
that someone knows where you are going and what time
to expect you back. "The difference between life and
death sometimes is because a person didn't return on
time and a family member or friend got worried. Getting
into the habit of telling someone where you're going can
save our life," Young said.
Scammers have already begun to make their presence
felt in the area. "I can't stress to people enough the fact
that they should never give out personal information on
the telephone," he said. There are several popular scams
that include declaring that the individual has won a large
sum of money. But, to collect, the person is asked to
send in a processing fee. Never send money for prizes
that you have "won." They may try to get your social
security number or bank account numbers.
Unfortunately, unscrupulous individuals are now
using legitimate charities to scam money. Make sure the
organization you are supporting will get the donations
you intend for them to get.
If you are going to be away from home try to make
your home look occupied by leaving on lights, radio or
television. "And, for Pete's sake don't hide a key under
the doormat, or flower pot on the porch or anywhere else
a criminal might look," Young said.
Since crooks don't like lights, make sure there is
ample lighting for the porch, yards, and all entrances to
your home. "If at all possible, they really should invest
in a home security system," he said.
Young said citizens should not allow strangers inside.
"They may say they want to use the telephone or that
they want to call someone for help. Make the call for
them and relay the information, but do not allow them
inside," he said.
And, even if you are at home, keep your doors
locked, Young said.

paraphernalia. According to a report
released by the GCSO, investigators
noticed Maxwell and a female leaning
in the driver's side of a vehicle at the
intersection of Atlanta Street and
Mainline Drive. Maxwell was arrested
after a routine traffic stop where offi-
cers said they noticed marijuana seeds
in plain view on the console. Maxwell
allegedly admitted to smoking marijua-
na. Following a search, investigators
found a small vile that contained sever-
al pieces of crack in his front pocket.
And on Friday Andre Lionell
Lumpkin was arrested and charged with
possession of crack cocaine with intent
to sell. This time it was an anonymous
caller who tipped off deputies.
Lampkin was in the Shiloh
Community and stopped on a traffic
violation. A search of his vehicle turned
up a small amount of crack cocaine in a
lady's jewelry box.
Lampkin denied knowing anything
about the cocaine and allegedly told
deputies he had given a ride to a black
man with long dreadlocks earlier in the
day and that the drugs must belong to
the man. He could not, however, identi-
fy the man.

Owner mucho gusto' to get


flighty bilingual parrot back


Ad in the Times helps

reunite owner and

loquacious fowl

by LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor
Call it the case of the bilingual bird.
When Greensboro Police Chief Marianne
Scholer got a call recently about a Spanish and
English speaking parrot flying around a resident's
yard, "It was a first for this department," she said.
The bird circled the home of Ruth Blount sev-
eral times before deciding it looked like a good
place to land.
Blount called the police department to report
the found fowl.
"She just mnarveled at his loquaciousness,"
Scholer noted.
Scholer decided the best way to handle the
mystery of the chatty chirper was to place an ad in
the Gadsden County Times in an attempt to find
its owner.
The response came "almost immediately," she
said and it was-from Greensboro Mayor Buddy
Pitts.
Pitts met Guadalupe Silva 25 years ago, when
she first moved to Greensboro. He knew she kept


a variety of pets, and figured the fugitive parrot
might be hers.
"We've just been real close friends ever since
she moved here," he said. "I called to see if she
had lost a parrot, and she had."
Silva speaks only Spanish, but was able to
communicate her appreciation when Pitts brought
the parrot Rex to her door.
Her granddaughter, Caroline Guerrero, 15, said
the bird pulled a Houdini act about two weeks ago
and that Silva "got really upset she was crying."
Asked how long she'd owned the bird, Silva
made a small cradle with her hands. She's owned
the bird about five years, Caroline said.
When Pitts returned the bird, Silva was mucho
gusto," she said pretty happy.
Rex not only speaks English and Spanish, he
also does a few imitations: ambulance sirens,
police car sirens, telephones ringing, to name a
few. He addresses dogs as "ninos" children and
whistles at girls.
Back at his rightful roost, Rex spent a restful
Monday afternoon eating one of his favorite treats
-shelled peanuts and commenting on family
activities. He'll have little chance to fly the coop
again Silva and her family have locked or wired
shut any part of his cage that could conceivably be
pushed open wide enough for him to escape.
"They're good, good people," Pitts said. "It just
turned out well."


Reward

Continued from Page 1
Annie Pearl Smith, Battle's
mother, gave an impassioned plea
for anyone with knowledge to
come forward.
"It's really hard knowing I will
never see her again or talk to her
again. I loved her with all of my
heart. Please, if anyone out there
knows something call the
police," she said.
Inv. Ulysses JenkinQ and FDLE
Special Agent Mitke DeVI;ane,
held a Thursday iat'ei .nri"pre.
conference to announce the
reward and to allow the family to
speak publicly for the first time.
They feel that Battles, who
frequented the Frenchtown: area
in Tallahassee, may have been
seen by someone there Saturday
or Sunday. Jenkins said that
Battles had friends in the area
and that she visited often. People
in the area, he said, knew her.
"We're.asking anyone who may
have seen her around the
Frenchtown area, in Havana, or
in south Georgia to come
forward. We're working very
hard and we have some great
leads, we have to find a few more
pieces," Jenkins said.
Battles' 1994 dark green, 4-
door Buick Skylark was found
burned just across the Georgia
state line, early on October 8.
Jenkins said that Battles'
boyfriend, with whom she lived
near Chaires Road in Tallahassee,
has cooperated and is not a prime
suspect. "No one has been ruled
out, but we have a person of
interest (who is not the
boyfriend)" DeVaney said.
The medical examiner has not
determined a cause of death, and
Jenkins said it could be weeks
before any information is
released. "Given the
circumstances, we believe it's a
homicide," Jenkins said.
Smith said she talked with her
daughter almost every day. "We
talked that Friday and she was
supposed to pick up the children.
We looked for her that Friday
night and she didn't show up, so
we thought she would come
Saturday. When she didn't come
or call, I just knew in my heart
that something had happened,"
she said.
Smith has been the legal
guardian of Battles' three
children, ages 10, 13, and 16 for
the past three years.
Anyone with information is
asked to call Jenkins at (850)
627-9233 of DeVaney at (850)
410-7645.

Havana awards bid for downtown project


by LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor

The Havana Town Council
voted Tuesday during its regular
meeting to accept the low bid -
and sole bid for a downtown
revitalization project slated to
start at the beginning of the year.
Council members awarded
the contract to Concrete
Services, which gave a base bid
of $946,000 that could be low-
ered to $667,000 if the town
decides to forego improvement
to the Planter's Exchange area.
The town will use a $566,000
grant to cover most of the costs
of revitalization, and could pull
from its paving reserves to help
make up the difference between
the grant money and the bid
amount.


"The town has paving
reserves, and we could certainly
alford to do the paving it
should cost around $70,000,"
said Town Manager Howard
McKinnon. "The general fund
has a healthy reserve the gen-
eral fund is almost going to
break even this year."
The main project will include
moving all downtown utilities
underground, adding several
street lights and redoing several
sidewalks. Downtown mer-
chants can also take advantage
of a $15,000 grant for facade
renovations by applying at town
hall merchants are eligible for
up to $2,000 for the renovations,
and those who did not take
advantage of the grant last year
will get priority this year,
McKinnon said.

Shirley McGill looks on. (Photo by Leslie Roberts)

Council members also got a study conducted by Hatch Mott
look at an extensive stormwater MacDonald engineers.


The study gives council
members a way to plan for the
upgrading of the town's
stormwater system in a priori-
tized manner, which engineers
estimate will cost around
$892,849.
Hatch Mott MacDonald engi-
neer Marty Hebrank conducted
an inventory of the town's
drainage system, labeled each
pipe, listed whether improve-
ments such as removal of vege-
tation or increased capacity are
needed and ranked each by pri-
ority.
"He looked at every single
pipe and every single ditch,"
Hatch Mott McDonald Senior
Associate Managei James
Bundy said. "This is intended to
be a planning tool ... it shows
you an order in which to fix


your stormwater system."
The study recommends a
clean up of existing ditches and
pipes should be first priority,
particularly in areas known to be
prone to flooding or have pipes
with an inadequate capacity.
"I've already discussed with
staff some of the maintenance
that needs to be done,"
McKinnon said. "With some of
these, we will need permission
from property owners when
there's no formal easement."
In other matters, McKinnon
said after the meeting he's
received more than 50 applica-
tions for the position of police
chief. Brian Mitchell resigned
his post last week to take a job in
Crestview. The deadline for
applications was 5 p.m. Nov. 9.

'Cross-Carrying Chuck'

walks the USA to remind

people they need Jesus

by LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor
He says his name is Chuck Johnson, that he's been on the road 20
years, across America 11 times and through Quincy four times count-
ing this week's trek.
He carries a large, white PVC-constructed cross along the way, a
single wheel propelling it across sidewalks and roadsides everywhere.
Monday afternoon, he stopped to talk to a reporter in front of
Talquin Electric Headquarters on U.S. 90 West in Quincy.
"I started in Tijuana, Mexico," he said. "The Lord told me to take
$55 with me. After I had built the'cross, it came out to $52 and some
change."
Johnson's original cross was redwood and weighed 85 pounds, he
said. He's been through every state in the country except Hawaii and
Alaska.
He does it, he says, "To get people to remember they need Jesus in
their lives."
Johnson said he attended Crossroads Bible College in California,
where he says he is originally from.
Soon after, when he was around 24, he prayed on his knees for
eight hours. Afterward, he saw a "light in the hills and a vision of a
man carrying a cross." He took it as a sign that's what he was sup-
posed to do.
Now, at nearly 45, he's learned a bit about walking across the
country with a cross: He gets more rides on the interstate, but it's ille-
gal for pedestrians to traverse major thoroughfares in Florida so he's
looking forward to getting to Texas, where the weather will be toler-
able for the. winter and he can hike down the highway.
He walked across U.S. 90 from Jacksonville to Quincy, where he
says local police put him up for the night and fed him a meal.
Truckers, he said, often pick him up and take him through several
states at a time; he depends on the money strangers give him for food.
"It's amazing how many people know me," he said.
He plans to write a book: "I Carry the Cross, God does the Work,"
with a "special chapter of highway patrol stories."
He says he hasn't been sick in 20 years, and that he doesn't preach,
he prays with people.
"It's hard it's difficult," he said. "Some times I go two clays with-
out eating. I get lonely. It's not for the weak."
He plans to walk and ride his way back to California, he said,
where he will likely start all over again.

Martha Cardenas wanted to
know how to proceed.
"Can we stop it before it
starts?" she asked. "We as
homeowners have limited power
... we have no way to protect our
interests unless you guys (take
action)."


"No commercial property
can just jump up there and build
without approval from planning
and zoning," Morris said.
Morris suggested the group
meet with the city manager and
the director of planning and zon-
ing to discuss the issue.


there are a few lots sprinkled
throughout the subdivision that
would allow the building of a
commercial enterprise and are
circulating a petition to try to
change the zoning.
"We are really concerned
about property values on any

be built," said resident Michael

with that."
"Commercial in residential

Morris said changes would-
n't take place overnight.
"This is not as simple as

dents. "First of all, you're not

Escambia solves jail overcrowding


by (literally) farming out inmates


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

What do you do with a jail that
is constantly overcrowded with
very few ways to alleviate the
problem without spending mil-
lions?
Last week the Gadsden
County Public Safety Council lis-
tened to a presentation of how
Escambia County .has begun to
tackle the same problem.
To help relieve overcrowding,
the Escambia County Board of
County Commissioners started a
prison, the only sanctioned coun-
ty prison in the state, using
inmates from the jail. Not only
does the program solve part of the
jail's overcrowded situation, it
has saved the county millions in
free labor.
Inmates from the jail are care-
fully screened before they are
admitted into the County's Road
Prison Program. "We have "no
murderers, no sex offenders, no
child molesters, no rapists, no
violent inmates in the program.
These are all non-violent
inmates," said Jeff Bohannon,
superintendent of the program.
The program is not run by the
sheriff but by the Board of
County Commissioners and is a
division of the Road Department.
"We have a great deal of cooper-
ation from the sheriff and we
work together," Bohannon said.
He said the 267 inmates who
are program participants actually
want to be in the program so that
they can get out of the cells and
into the fresh air daily. "They're
not sitting in the county jail trying
to figure out a way to beat the


system. They're actually working
for the taxpayers and they are
learning a trade," he said.
The inmates are not housed at
the jail, but in a separate prison
facility. They grow and prepare
their own food, which, according
to Bohannon, consists of a variety
of fresh vegetables.
"One of the reasons they want
to be in the program is that they
eat a heck of a lot better than the
people at the jail and the average
cost to feed an inmate is about 62
cents a day. When we grow our
own meat, we're looking to lower
that cost even more," he said.
The imnates farm a 5-to-6 acre
plot of corn, beans, greens and an
assortment of other vegetables.
They plant, tend, harvest, freeze
and sometimes cook what they
grow.
In addition to the farming pro-
gram, there are carpentry, land-
scaping/horticulture, and welding
programs. "There are no losers in
this, they get a skill they can use
when they leave jail and the com-
munity gets manpower,"
Bohannon said.
Two years ago, after
Hurricane Ivan, the road prison
inmates saved the county mil-
lions of dollars by doing every-
thing from cleaning ditches and
removing debris to replanting and
landscaping public properties.
They have also partnered with the
local community college to offer
the welding and horticulture
courses. "We guarantee them 15
students per class and they guar-
antee us a teacher," said Delton
Boswell.
The safety council members
said they were impressed with the


presentation and asked County
Manager Marlon Brown to make
arrangements for a trip to
Escambia County to get a look at
the program and how it operates.
In other safety council mat-
ters, Major James Morgan said
the census at the jail was 186 last
Thursday and had been as low as
174 earlier in the week. That's
because instead of sentencing
some inmates to 11 months and
29 days so that they can remain in
the county jail, several have been
sentenced to 12 months and one
day, which means they are sent to
the State Department of
Corrections.
County Judge Stu Parsons is
also helping by releasing those
charged with misdemeanors from
jail, Morgan said.
Public Defender Nancy
Daniels said her office is in the
process of moving toward a pre-
trial release program for Gadsden
County. "We need to have two or
three more meetings to put things
in place," she said.

Two things that is affecting
the Florida people that has
taken place this week and we
hope that the first takes place
and may lend a helping hand to
the Georgia Lake Folks.
Florida D.N.R. will take the
gaters "off' the endangered list
because they can't afford to
hire gator control people to
answer all the calls they get to
move all the unwanted gaters
from swimming pools, back-
yards, front yards, car ports, and
after they eat a pet. From now
on the land owner, home owner,
condo owner, and rancher will
have to do his own gater exter-
mination. So'be it, the way it
should be.
The next is the changing of
the laws ruling the takin of dif-
ferent species of Saltwater fish
in the Gulf. The big charter
boats limits will not be effected,
"But" the little 3, 4. or 5 passen-
ger family boats is effected, they
have only one or two fish to
catch and their trip. is -over for
the day. There is never a day
when I travel 97 to Bainbridge
and I don't see 4 to 5 Saltwater
5-passenger boats going South
to Panicea, Oklocknee River,
St. Marks or Port St. Joe to fish,
next year that will all change.
A sorry spectacle in my book.
The Speckle Perch loaded up
this week on Jigs and some fines
ones on Minnows. The small
ones are on the move to shallow
water (2-4 foot deep), but the
big ole gooduns are still in deep

Now the Catfish is on the
"up" list as many has been taken
this week. Stink Bait and

Driving range, fitness trail to open


City also putting finishing

touches to Sunset Acres

neighborhood park


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

In about a month residents
will have a new golf driving
range and a state-of-the-art fit-
ness trail. Located at the inter-
section of Martin Luther King,
Jr. Blvd.' and Atlanta Street,
most of the major work has
been completed.
"There are a few things that
we still have to do, like sod-
ding, finishing the parking lot,
posting signs, and getting the
restrooms ready," said
Reginald Cunningham, director
of the city's Parks and
Recreation Department.
Cunningham said that one
added feature will be an area
for horseshoe tossing. "We
saved some money and that's
one of the things that.
Commissioner (Keith)
Dowdell wanted to add,"
Cunningham said.
The fitness trail, which is an
asphalt sidewalk that circles the
complete driving range will
begin with a warm-up station
that gives the walker instruc-
tions on how to stretch and
bend.
Throughout the trail, visuals
are posted advising the walker
on different exercises to maxi-
mize using the trail.


Cunningham said citizens
have already begun using the
fitness trail although it's not
complete. "One woman said
she was happy not to have to go
to the track field anymore,"
Cunningham said.
A few miles away, children
in the Sunset Acres neighbor-
hood are eagerly awaiting the
opening of their newly renovat-
ed park.
The park, which had fallen
into disrepair after years of use
will soon be comparable to
other city neighborhood parks.
"The community really has
something to be proud of in this
park. The equipment is the lat-
est for these facilities,"
Cunningham said. In addition
to a new basketball court, there
is also a fitness trail, a picnic
area, and a toddler play area.
"Most of the work here is
finished. We have a little sod-
ding yet to complete and a few
more finishing touches, but it
will be ready to go soon," he
said.
To renovate Sunset Park and
to install the driving range and
fitness trail, the the city
received two, $200,000 grants
from the Florida Recreation
Development Assistance
Program from the Department
of Environmental Protection.

Shootin' hoops with the 'Supe'

Gadsden County Schools Superintendent Reginald James spent a little time Monday evening
shooting hoops with the East Gadsden High School boys' basketball team. James, who played on
a state championship basketball team when he was in high school, said he is pleased with the coun-
ty schools' athletic programs. "I always said if I became superintendent, I was going to get the best
coaches we could find. Winning builds character we want our kids to compete well," he said. "I
wanted to come out and talk to the students. My message to them is that I believe in them and that
they should certainly focus on academics so they can stay on the court." Carter-Parramore
Academy will have its first basketball team in years this season, and James plans to play a little
round ball at West Gadsden High School Nov. 20. (Photo by Leslie Roberts)

Wild game feed coming up


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
Feeling a little lunchy, but
you don't want just run-of-the-
mill restaurant and cookout
food'? You're craving something
different. You're wondering
what could you have that will
surely hit the spot?
Here are a few menu sugges-
tions from the wild game cook-
out hosted annually by the
Across the Track (hunting and
fishing) Club:
Bruce James'. succulent fried
rattlesnake
Rogers Lewis' delicious
drunken chicken
Leroy Herrings' authentic
deer neck and rice pilau
James McBride's (secret
recipe) Cowboy Soup
Calvin Singleton's light and
fluffy alligator souffle
Victor Lewis' exquisite
armadillo


Willie Weatherspoon's tanta-
lizing turtle and rice
Still want more? Un-m-m-m,
there's an assortment of other
mouth-watering fare which
includes, but is not limited to:
fried 'gator tail, 'gator and rice,
opossums, raccoons, turtles,
fried fish, fresh locally grown
field peas and okra, collard
greens, homemade biscuits,
cakes, and pies. Whew! It just
makes a body full to think about
all of that yummy food.
The vittles on that menu
would make Granny of The
Beverly Hillbillies fame sit up
and take notice.
It all starts Saturday,
November 11, at 1 p.m. at the
home of Rogers and Denise
Lewis in the Jamieson
Community. "Everybody is wel-
come and the food is free," said
Denise Lewis, who organized
the Wild Game Cookout five,

years ago. Last year, she said,
about 450 people showed up to
take part in the food and fun.'
"It's old fashioned and it's
family oriented. Everything is
like people used to live, it takes
you back in the years. We have
hay rides and pony rides for the
kids and it's a chance for them
to taste foods they might not
have tried before," she said.
The members of the club kill,
catch or grow just about every-
thing on the menu. Denise said
the club formed about 16 years
ago. Before the hunt, sometimes
as early as 3 a.m., the men
would gather at the Lewis'
home. She started cooking for
them before they went hunting
and she would often cook what
they brought back from the hunt
as well. She's not taking credit
for all of the other foods that go
along with the wild game. A
group of ladies she has assem-


bled over the years comes to the
rescue when it's time for the
cookout.
"I told my husband we ought
to share this with other people.
The first year we invited people,
we had it at (club
member)Rodney Moore's house
and it's been at our home since,"
she said.
There are about 25 members
of the club but Denise is the
only female. She'said she start-
ed going along with her husband
and would sit in the deer stand
and observe nature. "It was just
so beautiful out there and peace-
ful. I loved it," she said.
Then one day Rogers asked
her if she wanted to shoot. She
took him up on it and has been
hunting since. "He was trying to
show me how to shoot, I said 'I
got this' and dropped my first
deer with the first shot," she
said. One year, she said, she

bagged six bucks. "I go out
alone, he goes his way and I go
mine," she said of her husband.
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.

Rock-a-thon seeks

$25,000 for senior

citizens Friday
by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

Friday, Nov. 10, from 11 a.m.
to 5 p.m. senior citizens and those
who support them will be rocking
again in a rock-a-thon after a few
years hiatus.
"Our goal is to raise $25,000
for the senior citizens center to
help existing programs and add
new ones," said Inez Holt, who is
co-chairing the fundraiser.
Rockers are encouraged to
bring supporters, family, and
friends to cheer them on as they
rock for a worthy cause. The pub-
lic is invited to come, fellowship,
see old friends, and make new
ones to help the senior citizens.
"We're asking for the support
of all of Gadsden County for
what we hope will become an
annual giving program. There are
over 6,000 people over the age of
65 in the county and this is a way
of providing organized services
and programs to those citizens,"
Holt said.
Individuals may choose a
level of sponsorship from the fol-
lowing:
The Golden Years, $2,500;
The Silver Haired Years, $1,000;
The Bronze Years, $750; We
Care, $100.
No amount is too small to
give, urged members of the
Board of Directors. If you can't
come by on Friday, please make
checks payable to: Gadsden
Senior Services, and mail to 79
LaSalle Leffall Drive, Quincy,
FL 32351.

Veteran's Day set aside to hor

all veterans of America's wars


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
Did you ever wonder how Veterans'
Day got to be Veterans' Day?
For some people Veterans' Day is
one more holiday to stay home from-
work, shop or take a long weekend
mini-vacation.
Most people know, in a general
sense, that the holiday recognizes vet-
erans. The fact is, Veterans' Day, is
dedicated to honor all men and
women, both living and deceased, who
served in the armed forces..
The reason the eleventh was chosen
was than in 1918, at the eleventh hour
of the eleventh day in the eleventh
month, the armistice was signed to end
World War I which was deemed the
"war of all wars." This armistice was
to end all wars worldwide.
November 11, 1919 was set aside
as Armistice Day in the United States,
to remember the sacrifices that men
and women made during World War I
to ensure lasting peace.
On that first Armistice Day, soldiers
who survived the war marched in a
parades throughout their home towns
across America. Politicians gave
speeches and held ceremonies giving


thanks for the war that had just been
won.
Congress voted Armistice Day a
federal holiday in 1938, 20 years after
the war ended. But Americans realized
that the previous war (World War I)
would not be the last one. World War
II began the following year.
In 1953, the people of Emporia,
Kansas began calling what had been
Armistice Day, Veterans' Day to hbnor
the veterans of their city. Later,
Congress passed a bill introduced by a
Kansas Congressman Edwin K. Rees
officially changing the name to
Veterans' Day. In 1954 President
Dwight Eisenhower signed a bill pro-
claiming November 11 as Veterans'
Day.
A law passed in 1968 changed the
national commemoration of Veterans'
Day to the fourth Monday in October.
It soon became apparent that
November 11 was a date of historic
significance to many Americans.
Therefore, in 1978 Congress returned
to observance to November 11.
Americans still give thanks on
Veterans' Day. Throughout the nation,
there are ceremonies held in obser-
vance at 11 a.m., most people observe
a moment of silence as well.

Kinship with Gretna

leads young family

to join in on

the good things

happening here


by LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor

Damon and Catherine Gibbs see a lot of
good things going on in Gretna.
Their hope in moving there from Kentucky
was to find a way to fit in with the positive
changes they see taking place.
As members of the Christian Community
Development Association and representatives
of Killearn United Methodist Church in
Tallahassee, their focus is fostering restoration
of physical, spiritual, moral and economic sys-
tems in under-resourced areas.
"We want to build sustainable health and
empower citizens to create solutions they can
effect themselves," Mr. Gibbs said. "We've
really had the honor to hear people's stories -
their struggles, their joys what we're learning
is there are inequities here and in Gadsden
County in services and resources education,
healthcare, health issues can affect so many
areas of our lives there are reasons why there
are holes in roofs and the electricity is not
working."
The Gibbses both grew up in Georgia and
attended the University of Georgia, yet they
didn't meet until they were at Asbury
Theological Seminary in Wilmore, Ky. She
earned a master's of divinity with an emphasis
on mission work; he earned a master's of divin-
ity with an emphasis on church history and phi-
losophy.
Mrs. Gibbs had always planned to partici-
pate in overseas mission work and her husband,
to lead a campus ministry.
Meanwhile, they became involved in
Killearn's Gretna outreach programs and Pastor'
Bob Tindale asked them to stay on permanent-
ly.
"They are here basically as our representa-
tives and to find ways we can be in ministry in
this area," Tindale said. "Killearn has been


coming over to Gretna for years, and we've
developed a kinship and caring about the peo-
ple here."
Tindale got the idea around 14 years ago to
bring the church's outreach ministry which at
that time traveled to the mountains in Kentucky
and Tennessee to help folks repair houses and
health a bit closer to home. Gretna seemed
like an obvious choice; isolated, with no public
transportation other than school buses and little
access to medical or educational facilities.
Tindale, the Gibbs and others recognize
Gretna is not a town totally without faith,
strength or determination. Their hope is that
they can add theirs to the mix and help bring
about changes a bit more quickly.
"A year and a half ago, our church took a
new turn. Instead of wanting tE build Killearn,
we wanted to build God's kingdom," Tindale
said. "We'd like to come out and do some
tutoring. There are a lot of people who want to
come and help make a difference. We want to
explore all the different ways we can do that.
It's an honor to be able to come out here."
"The church really took a chance," Mr.
Gibbs said, "and (Tindale) really went against
the grain."
The opening of the Gretna Wellness Center
Tuesday is one victory several entities -
Killearn, the City of Gretna, the county health
department, to name a few can claim.
Other issues will take time to resolve.
"Residents tell us they see hopelessness in
their youth's eyes. We want to help them figure
out how to make hope come back to their faces,
to say, 'Alright, God. l'ho do we go forward,'"
Mrs. Gibbs said. Kno.'.ihg the story of Gretlna
- and Gadsden County is imperative. Shade
tobacco, the culture it created, and then going
from shade tobacco to tomatoes there is a
huge difference in how those operations are
carried out and who is hired to do them."
Mr. Gibbs says the couple's ministry takes a
holistic approach "the whole gospel to the
whole person.
"It really makes no sense to offer someone
the gospel if they're hungry," he said. "As
Christians, if Jesus really came to give us good
life good food, good golf then it's supposed
to be fun. Life is good. Gretna is worth it this
town deserves health and well being. It's excit-
ing to talk about this we want to help this
community continue to strengthen itself. I think
it's doable as long as we have God's blessing.
For now, God is kind enough to let us join in."

the county owes $1,000 to vendors. "The
money was promised and the people
haven't been paid," Ryan said.
Saunders said money to pay those
vendor was part of the $18,000 she was
asking permission to spend.
"I serve on the TDC and I am totally in
favor of looking at this again. We
haven't consistently monitored how
many people stayed and paid the bed tax.
We need a checks and balance system.
The TDC is supposed to serve the whole
county. It shouldn't be a closed society,"
said Commissioner Brenda Holt.
In other matters, Commission
Chairman Dixon thanked Commissioner
Sterling Watson for his work in behalf of

the citizens. Watson served 12 years on
the board before deciding not to seek re-
election this fall.
"We spent 12 years of rockin' and
rollin'. We agreed on the big things; it's
the small things that we disagreed on. I
want to express my thanks for all of the
good years," Dixon said.
Other commisisoners said they had
enjoyed working with Watson on the
board.
Commissioners recognized Alfreda
Gunn for bravery with a proclamation
and a plaque. Gunn, 12, is credited with
saving her mother and cousin from a fire
before she went into the burning
structure to rescue her 4-year-old
brother. Once outside she gave him CPR
and revived him. Chris Floyd of the
American Red Cross also presented
Gunn with a plaque.
Gunn said she learned CPR and how to
escape a burning building from Red
Cross training at school.

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

Claude Oscar Monet was born on November 14, 1840 in Paris, France. Monet was an artist that is famous for the impressionist paintings
he created in the 1300's. Impressionism was a type of art, mainly painted, used by artists at this time. The name 'impressionism' was given
to these .vorks of art, after the name of one of his famous paintings called Impression Sunrise. Impressionist artists of art used swift
brushstrol'es and played with the effects of light to create pictures, as opposed to the traditional -eaisiic 'paintingc (See the pictures below
for e%.amples of Monet s work). The impressionist art movement opened the door to many more types of modem art. Monet, and many of
his fnends ,.vho ..,ould also later become famous artists, such as Renoir and Manet, paved the way for many more artists to come after
them
As a young man Monet was no',n for the dra~igis he made of people, mostly caricatures. These were not paintings, but pencil and

"I would recommend military

service to anyone," she said. "Before

that, I was something of a wastrel.

Being in the service kind of shot me

out of that cannon and I don't think

I've stopped since."

That's a fact. At 58, she has
"retired" about three times, only to

find another facet of law enforce-

ment or military involvement that

pulls her back into action.

Currently chief of the Greensboro

Police Department, she began her

law enforcement career at a small

police department outside

Washington, D.C. In 1973, she was
hired by the Orange County :

Sheriff's Office in the Orlando area -

tough training ground. It was there

she met her husband, Norm, who

was a professional firefighter and

now serves as chief of the volunteer

fire department in Greensboro.

since 9/11," he said. "East
Gadsden High School will be
there, JROTC will post colors,
there will be an exhibition of a
championship drill team and a
tribute to Havana residents who
were killed in action. We'll have a
moment of silence and play a
recorded version of 'Taps."'
Moore served in the military
more than 31 years, joining the
U.S. Army in 1945.
"The only shooting war I was
actually in was Vietnam I was in
Europe during the Korean War.
During Vietnam, I spent time all
over the country, visited every
combat unit in Vietnam. I don't
consider myself any hero, and
don't want any implication of
that," he said, although he does
acknowledge traveling across
Vietnam was "sometimes a little
touchy."
This year's keynote speaker is
Dr. John T. Elkins Jr., a captain
in the U.S. Navy Medical Corps
who served during World War II.
For more information, call
Col. Moore at 539-1893.

Carter Parramore holds parent expo


On Nov. 2 CPA held the first
of several Parent Expos. There.
parents received their children's
first report card of the year.
Dinner was also served.
Parents and guardians had a
chance to meet and greet their
children's teachers, and were
given the opportunity to really
talk to the teachers about the
progress, good and bad, their
student was making.
The action-packed hour was
filled with a very positive ener-
gy. Parents got a chance to see
how important they are when
they actively involved in their
child's academic life. Teachers
also got a chance to realize how
much they actually influence
their students' lives, due to the
positive feeback from parents.
The important focus that was
shown that night was that both
parents and teachers working


close together contributes to the
overall success of the students'
academic life.
This also gave the student
body the chance to witness
Teacher/Parent collaborations.
Senior Angelique Moore said
that she liked how her mother
got a chance to check up on her
and her sister's progress. She
also applauded the idea of hav-
ing parents themselves receive
report cards, as opposed to them
being sent home through stu-
dents or via mail, as they may
not see the report cards. She
stated that she really enjoyed
seeing the interaction between
parents and teachers.
Many students were elated
when they saw their individual
report cards, as this was a visual
representation of the students'
hard work the first nine weeks
of the school year. Many stu-


dents worked extremely hard
and were promoted (some stu-
dents) several grades. There has
been, for the last few weeks, an
air of continuous excietment
throughout the school.
Students, at the Parent Expo,
were running to teachers, excit-
ed because they got A-B Honor
Roll for the first time. Parent
Mona Lisa Cotton perhaps
summed it up best, "I never seen
one like this before!" speaking
very proudly of her daughter
Darnica Collins' A-B honor roll
status. Pauline West, Assistant
Principal of Cirric'ulum, stated
to the parents, as she opened the
expo, that the ultimate goal at
Carter Parramore Academy is to
help the students achieve aca-
demically and it is apparent that
they are well on their way.

St. John students accept
challenge to read 5,000
books by January, 2007

The challenge is set! The
boys and girls at St. John
Elementary school have been
challenged to read 5,000 books
by January 2007. They have
accepted this challenge with
eagerness. If you entered the
campus on any given day, you
constantly hear students being
challenged to read, read, read.
To help facilitate this phenome-
nal endeavor, the students are
encouraged to read at home, on
the bus, or anywhere they have
free time. Each child has a log
to list the books they have read
along with a spot for signatures
of individuals who supported
them while reading. If you
would like to help us reach our
reading goal of 5,000 books by
January 2007, please come out
and read with a student. The
doors at St. John are always
open and visitors are always
welcome!
