City commissioners have been wrestling with

under the commission. In the past, the CRA
manager reported to the city manager as do
other department heads. All that changed about
eight weeks ago when the manager, after
several rounds of interviews with applicants,
presented a recommendation. Commissioners
advised the manager, after they met his
preferred candidate, that they were not happy
with his choice and decided to interview the
top six applicants again and hire who they
wanted. For the first time since the inception

Our youth in crisis


Chairman Ed Dixon facilitated the roundtable discussion,"Youth Crisis in Gadsden County", attended by about 50
people.

'Whatever we have on the table isn't working'


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
There is a crisis in the youth 'in
Gadsden County and the way to solve it
is to change the dynamics, according to
County Commission Chairman Ed
Dixon. "We've all got to work together
to ensure the success of all of our
children," Dixon told a room full of
elected officials and community leaders
Monday night during the first
Chairman's Roundtable Discussion:
"Youth Crisis In Gadsden County".
Dixon said he called the meeting
because of two recent incidents that
resulted in the deaths of two teenagers,
Crystal Riley and Camilla Byrd. "This
thing didn't just happen. Crystal Riley
was not an isolated. Are we all
culpable?" Dixon asked.
He asked those attending meeting, who


Yes, Virginia,

there will be a

Christmas parade

by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
Yes Virginia, there will be a Christmas
Parade in Quincy this year and yes,
Santa Claus is coming to town. It will all
take place on Friday, Dec. 8.
The parade will begin at 6 p.m. at the
corner of King and Graves Street (at
James A. Shanks Middle School) and
proceeds east to Adams Street and will
disband at the Courthouse Square.
"We've already lined up'bands, floats,
lots of cheerleaders. We're expecting all
of the participants to have lots Christmas
lights on their entries to make it a
beautiful parade," according to Stacy
Brown, executive assistant to the city
manager.
From 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. all activities will
be on the square, where children can get
their pictures taken with Santa and adults
can enjoy a variety of entertainment,
including the East Gadsden High School
Chorus, and local groups performing.
There will also be food.
Anyone interested in participating
should call Brown at 627-7681ext. 228.


had programs dealing with youth, not to
become defensive. "We hope to have a
free-flowing give and take. No answers
are going to come out at the end of this
gathering, but at least we will know the
questions," he said.
Starting with unemployment statistics
that Dixon said are off the mark. "The
state tells us that there is a 3%
unemployment rate in Gadsden County,
down from 4% last year. I know that no
one in this room believes that. The
unemployment rate in Gadsden County
is more like 17% and for African
American males, it's more like 25%," he
said.
Unemployment manifests itself in
many ways, including sending children
to school who are not ready to learn and
overcrowding our jail and justice
system. The good news, Dixon said, is
that the kids can be saved.


He said that despite high drop out
rates, poor graduation rates, tests scores
that leave much to be desired, and high
juvenile delinquency numbers, it's going
to take the entire community working
together to stem the tide and turn things
around for the county's young people.
"Whatever we have on the table isn't
working. The definition of crazy is to
keep doing things the same way and
expect the results to be different," Dixon
said.
Truancy was identified as a major
contributor to youth problems. If they're
not in school, they cannot learn and if
they are not in school they have time to
get into trouble.
Chief Gerald McSwain of the Quincy
Police Department said the department
has a commitment not to pass any child
on the street who needs to be in school.

Local health care: what's


next after vote failed


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
Gadsden County voters rejected the
half-cent sales tax, which would have
provided funds to help the uninsured
and underinsured receive health care.
"I'm disappointed, but I feel good that
47 percent of the voters did support the
idea," said Max Martinez, executive
director of the Gadsden County Health
Council, which supported the
referendum. "I can sleep at night
because we did our job," he said.
He also had high praise for the
political action committee, Gadsden
County Citizens for Quality Healthcare,
that was responsible was holding
meetings, placing signs, and going to
communities to push the referendum.
"They did a marvelous job. I was very
impressed by the way they organized
themselves, went to the churches, and
hit the pavement," he said.
Encouraged by the slim margin of
defeat, Martinez said he and others,
who want to see everyone get health
care in the county, have already begun
work to get the issue on the 2008 ballot.
He hopes for success on the second try.


Martinez said he was taken aback
when, a few days before the election,
signs in opposition to the referenduri
began popping up throughout the
county.
"I don't have a problem with people
opposing (the measure) but I would
have liked for them to come to the table
and present their plan if ours was not to
their liking," he said.
Martinez said he learned the local
Republican Party opposed the tax and
were responsible for the signs.
"If they have another plan, I would
love to hear it. It's important to all of us
if people who have opposing views are
willing to discuss the issues and at least
come to a compromise," he said.
A similar referendum in Leon County
also failed. "I think that because so
many people from over here work in
Leon County and because there was a
lot of opposition and publicity, they
might have gotten a bit confused
thinking that our referendum was like
Leon County's," he said.
While he is disappointed in the vote,
he said the bigger issue is Gadsden
Countians taking responsibility for their

pauses on

comp plan
by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
Changes to the city's
comprehensive plan gave Quincy
city commissioners reason to
pause Tuesday night during the
regular meeting.
Commissioners held the first
public hearing on the changes but
said they were concerned that
citizens, who might .be adversely
affected, will not know about
many of the proposed changes.
The second public hearing will be
held on Dec. 12.
Kirk Tanis, Building and
Planning interim director, said he
planned to buy three one-quarter
page ads in the newspaper to
inform citizens.
"I wanted to give the
commissioners and the citizens
time to read it and get answers to
their questions, that's why I gave
it three weeks instead of two,"
said Bill Bogan, city manager.
The city has until Dec. 31 to

Waste Pro gets G-boro's trash


Waste company to build

facility in Midway

by LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor
Greensboro residents will soon see garbage
cans of a different color at their curbs.
The Greensboro Town Council voted Monday
night during its regular meeting to award the
town's garbage collection contract to Waste Pro
rather than rehiring Waste Management.
"We thought it was time to ask for proposals
again," Town Clerk H. Maxwell Fletcher said.
"We put out a request for proposals, and Waste Pro
was the low bidder."
Waste Pro Regional Vice President Ralph Mills
says he's hoping for a long relationship with
Greensboro and other Gadsden County municipal-
ities as well.
"This is our very first contract in Gadsden
County," he said Tuesday. "We're excited.
Hopefully it won't be the last Midway and
Havana have both put out requests for proposals,
and we'll bid on those. Competition is a good
thing it's a healthy thing."
The company took over garbage collection in
Tallahassee Oct. 1 after the city chose it over
Waste Management.
Although it's a 96,000 collection site route, "it
went off extremely smoothly," according to Mills.


Waste Pro plans to break ground on a new,
regional facility in the Midway 10/90 Industrial
Park by the end of the month. The company
bought 8 1/2 acres on which it plans to put a
3,600-square-foot administrative building and a
7,200-square-foot operations and maintenance
building. The facility has the capacity to house 40-
50 trucks and 100 employees, Mills said.
"It's going to be kind of a hub. We may go to
routes in Georgia from there," he said. "We also
have a contract in Wakulla, and we're looking at
Carrabelle and Apalachicola. All our equipment is
brand new we're growing and it's exciting. God
willing, we're going to be successful."
Mills said he's hired around 40 Gadsden
County residents and may hire that many more.
"When you've got good equipment to work
with and good people people who like their jobs
- it makes a difference. We've got a lot of fantas-
tic people on our crew," Mills said.
Greensboro Mayor Buddy Pitts said the town
has worked with Mills before he formerly
worked for Waste Management and that coupled
with Waste Pro's lowerbid made awarding the
company the contract "a win-win situation."
"We wanted a reputable company and at the
same time we wanted to keep collection as afford-
able as possible," Pitts said. "That played a very
large part in it."
Waste Pro will begin garbage collection Jan. 1
and is looking at the possibility of a twice-weekly
service.

Art in Gadsden 'so


good' judge picks 3


honorable mentions


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

Opening night at the 18th
Annual Art In Gadsden
Regional Regional Art Exhibit
was a success. Hundreds of peo-
ple attended the opening last
Friday night that featured artists
using a variety of mediums from
throughout north Florida.
"The quality is very high.
There is a consistency to the
quality, there isn't a wide range
in what I would call the best in
Show and not the best," said
Jerry Draper former Florida
State University Dean, who
judged the show. This year, for
the first time, Draper said he
took the license to name three
honorable mention winners.
"Their work was so good," he
said, before naming Judith
Bettendorf, Elvin Kever and
Kathleen Wilcox as winners.
The Best in Show award was
presented to John Metcalfe for
his acrylic on canvas called
"Moonbeam." First place went
to Richard Ferrall for acrylic on
canvas, called "Life Fully
Lived", the second place winner
was J. William Hill's mixed
media, "Threatened a,b,c" and
Ruth Draper earned third place
for her "Sands of Time" water-
color.
The audience was in for a
rare treat when Beth Appleton,
exhibition founder, gave the his-
tory of Art in Gadsden. "My
husband David (Harbaugh) and
I are credited with being the
founders of this exhibition: Art
in Gadsden. We are so proud of
this and it keeps us connected to
a town we love," she said.
The exhibition started 18
years ago in what was then the


old Wilson's Building. "The
idea got rolling way back on a
fall morning in 1988 over a cup
of David's strong coffee. We
had been traveling a lot, exhibit-
ing my art work around the
country at many art centers, gal-
leries and shows," Appleton
said.
She said they came home
after seeing the way other cities
and towns celebrated their art.
So, they borrowed ideas from
others and with the help of the
locals, the exhibition was born.
Tallahassee's LeMoyne Art
Foundation was extremely help-
ful and promoted the center.
The exhibition was held in
many downtown locations, even
a church, before Mark and Patsy
Bates gave it a permanent home.
She recalled the difficulty in
finding artists for the first show
and how Alphonso Jennings,
who made baskets from white
oaks shared with them.
"Not only did he agree to
show his work with us that year,
but he also came and gave talks
to school children who came by
the busloads as they still do
today," she said.
They also displayed works
from "outsider" artists at that
first show, which made the show
unique. Established artists like
Dawn McMillan and Eluster
Richardson also were represent-
ed prominently showed their
works.
"There are so many memo-
ries that include so many of you
here tonight," she said looking
around the room. "Many of you
started your first collection of
local art work that year and have
been adding to your collection
every since."

County hires new


economic developer


Last week's Coon Bottom Pilau was, as usual, well-attended. (Photo by Leslie Roberts)


4,000 came, saw, sampled

famous Coon Bottom Pilau

by LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor

They came, they saw, they sampled.
The world-famous Coon Bottom Pilau Nov. 9 drew around
4,000 this year, with a line already in place just before the 5 p.m.
kickoff and county deputies directing traffic.
"We had a real good crowd," said Don Vickers, a Havana City
Councilman whose family and friends started the Coon Bottom
Pilau 51 years ago. "It's been a family connection. It started with
family and just grew bigger and bigger."
Some at the event stayed to eat and socialize at the rows and
rows of tables set up; others got their pilau to go.
A chicken-and-rice dish, pilau is a Southern staple.
Marjorie Kinnan-Rawlings wrote in Cross Creek Cookery,
"We pronounce the word 'pur-loo.' It is any dish of meat and rice
cooked together. No Florida church supper, no large rural gath-
ering, is without it. It is blessed among dishes for such a purpose,
or for a large family, for meat goes farther in a pilau than pre-
pared in any other way."
Last week's Coon Bottom Pilau boasted visitors from Texas,
Georgia, Louisiana, South Carolina and a variety of Florida
cities including Orlando and Chipley.
Money raised from the event goes toward the upkeep of the
Concord Cemetery, Vickers said, including mowing, cleaning
and trash and debris removal.
"We've got lots of good people working," said Vickers, who
owns the voluminous watch pots used to stew the chicken used
in the pilau. "It's just kind of a big, big family."



Gretna approves



KMR contract


by LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor

Gretna City Commissioners
voted Nov. 8 to approve a con-
tinuing service contract with
KMR Consultants despite the
objections of one commissioner
who called the move a conflict
of interest.
"I feel like this could be a
conflict of interest since
(Harold) Knowles is our attor-
ney," said Commissioner Helen
Franks.
"That was my concern, too,"
Mayor Nadine Smith said.
The commission voted 4-1 to
approve a continuing service
contract with KMR and 4-1 to
hire KMR for construction man-
agement services on the Park
Street Park phases III and IV,
with Franks dissenting both
votes.
Earlier this year, the commis-
sion hired KMR to assist with
several projects, including the
hiring of a city manager and
development of a plan for solv-
ing the city's sewer and water
woes. The company is a con-
sulting wing of the law firm city


attorney Knowles is a partner in,
Knowles, Marks and Randolph.
The city has been under a
Florida Department of
Environmental Protection
injunction since 2003 after DEP
issued a citation for an inade-
quate wastewater sewage col-
lection and transmission system
and the system's state of disre-
pair.
City Manager Antonio
Jefferson said the fact the
Knowles-KMR association was
discussed in a public forum
eliminated the conflict of inter-
est issue.
"There is a clause in the con-
tract that deals with the conflict
of interest issue," he said. "In
essence, we're not hiding the
fact that our attorney has an
interest in this firm."
Knowles noted KMR would
not report to him, but to the
commission and the city manag-
er.
"If it is disclosed to the
employer, the employer can
decide to overlook that," he
said. "Nobody was trying to
hide this. The company does not

County keeps


family exemption


with limitations


by LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor

Gadsden County
Commissioners waded through
the immediate-family exemption
quagmire Tuesday night during a
special meeting and came up with
an option that would keep the rule
on the books.
The county Planning and
Zoning Commission voted to
"sunset" the family exemption,
giving eligible residents six
months to use it before it was
retired.
The provision allows a proper-
ty owner to divide his or her
property in order to give it to a
relative defined in state statute
as a grandchild, biological child,
stepchild, sibling, grandparent,
parent, stepparent or adopted par-
ent as long as doing so doesn't
violate local land-use plans.
The problem is, many family
exemption subdivisions do vio-
late local land-use plans, and
enforcing the rules verifying
familial ties, deed restrictions and
the like is an enormous project.
Despite the Planning and
Zoning Commission's previous
vote, land purchased before July
2000 would still be eligible for
family exemption use as long as
density regulations weren't vio-.
lated.
"We estimate a third of the
county would still be eligible,"
Growth Management Services
Director Bill McCord said
Tuesday.
Several local residents unhap-
py with the family exemption
process attended Tuesday's meet-
ing. Most of them said they
learned they were not eligible for
it after they had purchased a sec-
ond home for their property or
say they were given initial
approval to add another dwelling
only to find out later it was a vio-


lation of land-use ordinances.
Many didn't know what the per-
missible land-uses for their prop-
erty were when they purchased it,
or bought property long ago and
didn't realize the .rules had
changed.
"Which (option) would get us
where we need to be to get these
people where they want to be?"
Commissioner Eugene Lamb
asked.
McCord said adoption of a
family exemption,rule similar to
Tallahassee's would permit some
of the land uses residents at the
meeting wanted, but would allow
half-acre lots. That's a higher
density than many county offi-
cials are comfortable with.
"I don't have a problem with
getting down to one acre. I cer-
tainly don't believe it should be
permitted in rural residential
where people could split acres,"
Chairman Ed Dixon said.
In the end, commissioners
agreed to these criteria for a fam-
ily exemption: Property owners
must have a minimum of 3 acres,
the exemption would only be per-
mitted- in agricultural land-use
areas, property must have been
purchased before July 2000, sub-
divisions are excluded, no more
than three lots can be created and
there can be no lot among those
less than 1 acre. The grantor or
parent parcel can't give him or
herself a family exemption, and
covenants and deed restrictions
limiting the sale of the property to
someone who is not immediate
family would be required. And
families would get one shot at the
exemption, no more.
The board voted to have
McCord consult with the county
attorney on the drafting of an
ordinance outlining the proposal
and whether it complies with
state statutes. It would then be set
for a public hearing.

Tallahassee's loss could be
Gadsden County's gain.
At a special Gadsden County
Commission meeting Tuesday
night, commissioners approved
the drafting of a contract hiring
Brad Day, former executive
director of the Tallahassee-Leon
County Economic Development
Council. He will work as an inde-
pendent contractor who will
focus on economic development
services.
"We're looking at how the
county can better position itself to
be attractive to businesses and
residents," County Manager
Marlon Brown said.
The timing worked out well
for both parties commissioners
voted last week to suspend oper-
ations of the Tourism
Development Council after ques-
tions about conflicts of interest,
spending habits and the council's
authority to enter into contracts or
award grants.
Day resigned his position at
the Tallahassee EDC last month
after contract negotiations were
stymied over salary and organiza-
tional issues.
"We have an economic system
that's in disarray we need some
help," Commissioner Branda
Holt said. "One reason why I
really pushed for (Day) is we


really need someone looking out
'for the interests of Gadsden
County, someone who does not
have a business here."
Tuesday's unanimous vote
calls for an agreement between
the county and Day and
Company that would pay the
company $5,000 per month or
$60,000 annually.
The agreement has not yet
been signed, but likely will be by
the end of the year.
Day said he often worked in
partnership with Gadsden County
officials in his role as executive
director of the Tallahassee-Leon
EDC, and that he's looking for-
ward to devoting his full attention
to marketing Gadsden County to
businesses.
"There's a sense that we need
to have a more focused, strategic
plan for our county. Part of that is
preparing our county to look
good for companies looking at
it," Day said Wednesday morn-
ing. "There are 15,000 economic
development companies in the
country the competition is very
stiff. Around 400-500 projects
come to Florida annually most
of them want to go to Miami or
Orlando. To a lesser extent, they
go to Jacksonville or Panama
City. We have a daunting task -
our task is to market the unique
features of Gadsden County to
the rest of the world."

4 The Gadsden County Times November 16, 2006

Opinions o Colun:rlI s Letters to the Editor






A free exchange ll cof ideas is nIecessary for goold governneint aindc good cornaLuni-i i.es.


Most times I absolutely cringe when
folks rename meetings things like
"roundtable discussions" or "summits"
and I definitely don't look forward to
attending. But like a good trooper, I grab
my pen and pad and head out for what is
usually turns into several hours of veiled
and finger pointing. Whatever the
problem, it's someone else's fault and
invariably all parties become defensive.
That didn't happen Monday night
during a meeting called "Chairman's
Roundtable Discussion: Youth Crisis in
Gadsden County" when about 50 people
representing government, the courts, law
enforcement, schools, and the faith-
based community came together to talk.
There was no blame laid on anyone.
Everyone was cordial and no one got.
their back up when questions were asked
about the entity they represented.
In short, everything was laid on the
table and people looked at some of the
problems facing our youth and what can
be done to help. The meeting grew out of
the recent tragedies involving young
people in our community. Board of
County Commission Chairman Ed
Dixon had been trying for several weeks
to put the meeting together. Everyone he
invited couldn't make it but there were
enough movers and shakers on hand to
get the ball rolling in the right direction.
Monday night's meeting was the first
of what I hope will be a series of
meetings. We need to get a grip on what
is happening with our young people.
Even one death is too many and that's
what got Dixon on the trail of trying to
figure out what to do. He made it clear at


I watched four and a half minutes of the
CMA Awards last Monday night. That's all
it took. Or, maybe more appropriately,
that's all I could stand.
And listen, this is not a happy story. I am
the biggest country music fan that ever
pulled up a chair in front of the radio and
"watched" the Grand Ole Opry. I have
defended the country "twang" and "hay
seed" trappings from Bangor, Maine to
Astoria, Washington. I bought White Rose
Salve because Roy Clark told us to. We
won't cook with nothing but Crisco. I quit
a date right in the middle of it back in the
'60's because she made a disparaging
remark about Faron Young. I spent two
days once trying to find Grinders Switch.
I, along with Buck Owens, have taken the
country music pledge.
That's why I watched the country music
awards in a rather abbreviated fashion.
They weren't playing no country music! I
tuned in just as Brooks and Dunn were
introducing some young actress who
obviously didn't know Clifton Clowers
from Daddy Frank, the guitar man. She
announced the "candidates" for male
vocalist of the year. Alan Jackson was the
only one of the bunch that was actually a
country music singer.
Keith Urban won the award. You can't
imagine how that chapped me! It was the
Kenny Rogers deal all over again. Orfly
worse! I like Kenny Rogers. I like a lot of
his songs. I went all the way up to Murray
State University to see him once when he
sang with The New Christy Minstrels. I
also like music by Percy Faith and Otis
Redding. You know what the three have in
common? They all make excellent music
and none of them are country!
Keith Urban, I'm sure is an extra nice
guy. I have actually heard a couple of his
songs. I didn't like'em. But that is not the
point here. I'm not a music critic.' am
country. I know country. I understand
country. I can recognize and appreciate
country. Nat Stucky hit the nail on the head
back in April of '68 when he sang, "Don't
give me no plastic saddle, let me feel that
leather when I ride."
Keith Urban is not from Georgia or
Texas. Or East Tennessee. Or Pahokee,
Florida. I bet he never picked cotton. Or
had the hood of a 1954 Dodge pick-up fall
on his back while he was adjusting the
carburetor. Or climbed a persimmon tree to
fetch breakfast.


the beginning of the meeting that
nothing was going to be solved at the
end of the three-hour exchange of ideas.
The first, and most important, step to
take was to identify the problems.
Several people had good suggestions and
that, mixed with some sobering statistics
from the Department of Education, led to
lively discussion about the state of the
young people in Gadsden County. .
Everyone there knew that nothing will
bring Crystal Riley and Camilla Byrd,
two teenagers killed in auto-related
accidents weeks apart, back to life. Nor
will it change anything about the lives of
the other teens charged in the deaths.
Dixon's point for calling the meeting is
that we have lost not two, but four
children in recent months.
While many have not died, they have
been lost all the same. They are on a
road that will only lead to a life of
dispair for them as adults. Everyone
agreed that something has to be done and
that it will take a lot of work from all
communities represented at the meeting.
The meeting didn't include, this time,
those who were the topic of
conversation, the youth. At the next
meeting some of our youth will be
invited, But it won't be the honor roll
students or the student government
presidents, it will be the kids who need
to be saved from a mean and cruel world
they will surely enter unprepared to
handle because the generation
responsible for teaching them has failed
so many of them in so many ways.
These meetings are the right thing to
do.


He wasn't even at the awards show the
other night.to pick up his hardware. My
wife said he was 'at a rehab center trying to
"straighten out his life." That part wouldn't
exclude him from the country music genre.
See Hank Williams, Spade Cooley, Don
Gibson, Johnny Cash..... His music keeps
him from being country!
Cathy also mentioned that he was married
to Nicole Kidman. She sure can pick'em!
Ronnie Dunn read Urban's "acceptance"
speech. I couldn't understand his
mumblings. I just sat through it hoping
Alan Jackson was on next. Or maybe they
would do a tribute to Billy Walker or Merle
Haggard. I would have settled for a brief
picture of Minnie Pearl up on the big
screen at the back of the stage. Shucks,
Ernie Ashworth doing "Talk Back
Trembling Lips" would have been better
than the last three minutes!
I pondered the demise of county music. It
had gone all too quietly. It's hard to say
exactly what killed it. Trying to get a video
out of every.blond haired girl under 25
hasn't helped. And I'm sure political
correctness is partly to blame. As is this
penchant in America today to blend
everything together. That "throw it all into
one pot" mentality with respect to country
music is about to drive me over the edge....
There ain't but one Johnny Paycheck.
One "Cute and Country" Connie Smith.
One Gary Gene Watson. One Johnny
Horton. Listen, when George Jones hits the
first note in "Why, Baby, Why" you ain't
got to ask your brother or your neighbor
who it is. You listen to Marty Robbins
doing "El Paso" and he doesn't need to
hide that voice behind "way too loud"
drums, a lead guitar gone wild or a million
dollars worth of mixing boards, voice-
overs, audio add-ins and synthesizers.
You check out Loretta Lynn's remarkable
story. She is country personified! Genuine.
Matchless. One of a kind. You can bet the
farm she is not crooning about anything
she hasn't lived! You listen to Charlie
Louvin sing "Thihk I'll Go Somewhere
And Cry Myself To Sleep" and then come
and talk to me about country music in
America today.
I realize the world doesn't wait on me.
There are different strokes for different
folks. Variety is the spice of life. Hip is
"in". Real is "out". And maybe it is.....but
I've got some rights......don't pass them

That's dinner? Priceless.


Several years ago I became something
of a health food fanatic.
Real butter? Margarine? Not in my
house Smart Blend or some other easy-
on-the-arteries brand for my refrigerator.
I ate enough walnuts to make a squirrel
shudder, went through every spice on the
rack trying to come up with different
ways to flavor broiled fish and stocked a
regular fat-free smorgasbord in my
kitchen.
The night I slapped down a heaping
bowl of romaine lettuce, cherry
tomatoes, sliced zucchini, carrots and
mushrooms drizzled with olive oil and
vinegar for supper with a side of
toasted whole wheat garlic bread my
husband and my son looked forlornly
around the kitchen for the rest of the
meal.
"Oh! I forgot the tuna patties!" I
yelped, jumping up to retrieve a main
course that consisted of tuna sauteed in
olive oil with bell peppers and onions.
One can of tuna, an onion and a bell
pepper? $3.28. The look on their faces
when they realized that's all they were
getting for dinner? Priceless.
But it seemed like anywhere we went -
to a friend's for a cookout, a child's
birthday party or a festival or a fair -
hotdogs, hamburgers and French fries
were standard issue. I took to ordering
pizza on Friday nights. Instead of
walking daily, I started missing a day
here and a day there soon I was not
walking more than I was.
So when I mention that at Saturday's
Havana Health Care Revival participants
were offered hotdogs and/or fried mullet

with a choice of sugar-laden sodas or
iced tea to drink, I am officially coming
from a slid-down-that-slippery-slope-
myself point of view.
Still.
The thing was sponsored by Project
CHOICE (Center for Healthy Options
and Innovative Community
Empowerment) in which the Florida
A&M University's Institute of Public
Health College of Pharmacy and
Pharmaceutical Science and Harvard
University's School of Public Health are
partners in a four-year study designed to
address major causes of excess mortality
in minority communities and address
health care disparities in general.
Saturday's event was one of several
community outreach programs local
CHOICE coordinators have initiated
since the National Institute of Health
gave FAMU and Harvard $6 million in
2004 for the CHOICE project.
Held at the Havana Health Department,
the featured speaker for the weekend
"Health Care Revival" was cardiologist
Dr. Earl Britt. FAMU School of Nursing
recruits provided health screenings,
checking blood pressure, blood sugar
and cholesterol levels.
Angela Burgess, program manager for
the Gadsden County Project CHOICE,
said Monday she and others involved in
the event realized the food served there
was not particularly healthy, that it could
drive up a diabetic's blood sugar or a
person's cholesterol.
"All individuals were encouraged to get
testing done before eating," she said.

EMS personnel

are great


Dear Editor,
I'm writing because I feel that the County
Commissioners and the residents of the county
should know how great our EMS personnel are.
Around the 2nd of August I was at home alone and
had an asthma attack. I dialed 911, but all I could say
was "I can't breath." The next thing I remember is
everything going dark.
EMS was sent to my residence, and thankfully, I
forgot to lock my door or they would have had to
find another way into my home. In my case every
second matters when you cannot breathe. I was
found on the floor barely breathing.
They had to call Life Net to transfer me to Capital
Regional Medical Center. EMS was unable to
transfer me because they could not put me on life
support. Thee are some residents of this county that
have special "IV ports," (Medi-Port; Infusa-Port),
that require a special needle in order for it to work.
The County Commissioners need to ensure that all
the EMS staff is certified in this area and these
needles are purchased because our lives depend on
this happening.
EMS worked on me with everything that they had
in order to keep me alive until Life Net could arrive.
Once it arrived I was no longer able to breathe. I was
placed on life support by them and taken to the
hospital. I spent the next two months in the hospital
with a week in the ICU.
The reason for this letter is to say I want to see that
our EMS personnel have everything needed in order
to treat the not-so-sick to the almost-dying residents
of this county and to let the County Commissioners
know that we as taxpaying citizens of this county
want what is best for all of us. But most of all, I want
to say "thank you so very much" to all of the EMS
personnel that worked so hard to keep me in the land
of the living. I thank you for the great job you do in
and around Gadsden County.
Sincerely,
Tawnja Bethea

Bruce Wimberley



Old soldiers

and football

players

Randy Greene read it on a
bumper sticker recently.
The older I get, the better I was.
That probably applies to old
soldiers and old football players
in equal measure.
Both were in abundance Friday
at Kittrell' s Restaurant when the
Guy A.~Ra'ce group got together
for lunch as they do every Friday
at noon. This group of Quincy
men is also known as the
ROMEO club (Really Old Men
Eating Out). The group includes
(probably also in equal measure)
old soldiers and old football
players.
This Friday, however, was
kinda special. Bruce Wimberley,
who may be the only former
Quincy football star to have his
name etched in as lofty a Hall of
Fame as that of the University of
Georgia, was here.
So were Murray McQuaig
(USMC), Joe Luten. .-" .
Al Bassett, Jim
Campbell, Bill
Munroe, Lewis e
Gregory, Walter ,
Watson and some
other names from :
Quincy's
football rosters
in the 1930's and 1940's. Among
them were pilots who flew war
missions over Europe and Africa
and a retired USMC officer or
two.
Not one of them disagreed with
Randy Greene. But not a one of
them remembered himself or his
teammates as being as great as
their coach. Sometimes the
stories would overlap football
field and battlefield.
For instance, Jim Campbell,
who was both a member of
Quincy's 1934 championship
team and a pilot during WWII,
was asked if he had any luck as a
pilot.
Without mission' that proverbial
lick Campbell shot back, "I sure
did. I got back."
Campbell, by the way, has
written a book about his
experiences. He says he wrote it
for his grandkids, but if y'all
want to read it, it's okay with
him.
Race was remembered as a
great man. "He didn't smoke.
Didn't drink. Didn't chase
women," one said. "I don't know
if he ever had any fun, but he
sure was a good man."
Greene said their experiences
on Race's teams left them with
some pretty good memories. "We
weren't always the best, but we
had fun," he said.
Listening to these guys
reminisce, however, I think I may
have to disagree with him. Even
making allowances for
embellishment that they've
earned the right to, they
obviously had a good time while
being very, very good. It's just
that the stories they tend to tell
have more to do with having fun.
Take Al Bassett for example. Al

Midterm


Superintendent: a lot has been


accomplished, a lot left to do


by LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor

Nov. 15 marks Gadsden County Schools
Superintendent Reginald James' second year in
office.
He's accomplished a good deal of what he set
out to do raise academic scores, involve parents
and the community in education, give pay raises
to teachers, administrative and other non-instruc-
tional staff.
But there's a lot left to do.
"When I took this job, five of our schools were
F schools and that's not counting the number that
were D schools," James said.
"Nobody wants to be an F student. Nobody
wants his child to be an F student. I was at Stewart
Street Elementary when it was announced their
grade had been raised the children were ecstatic.
For a long time, some people believed we could-
n't get this turned around. We're trying to raise the
level of expectation."
Stewart Street Elementary earned a C from the
state Department of Education for the 2005-2006
school year; seven other Gadsden County elemen-.
tary and middle schools earned Cs, and the mag-
net school and.Crossroads Academy earned As.
Both East and West- Gadsden high schools
earned Ds, as did George W. Munroe Elementary.
Carter-Parramore Academy earned a P.
"We think we've made significant accomplish-
ments and other people do, too," James said.
"The faith-based initiative helped us. We got
the community's interest up. A record number of
parents came out to our parent expo this year -
what it says to me is, we have educational momen-
tum. Parents are beginning to feel good about our
schools. Enrollment is up by 200 this year for
years and. years, we had a decline in enrollment.
Parents' confidence is returning. Our message is
getting out."
James started his career as a teacher, working
also as a counselor, a district administrator, and
university associate dean at Florida State
University and Florida A&M University. Earlier
this year, FAMU inducted him into the Hall of
Fame for Education.
"I just felt humbled and honored," he said.
During his career, he said he saw a lack of
parental involvement that negatively impacted
students.
That's one reason he implemented a faith-
based initiative soon-after taking office, he says.
"Over my years in education here I had
observed over time that we had some difficulty
getting parents involved," he said. "If they won't
come to us, we'll take the message to them. Our
goal is raising the importance of education in
every household. The faith-based initiative has
worked well for us we live in a community in
which ministers are really leaders."


Fifty-six local churches participate in the initia-
tive, providing everything from donations to men-
toring to books and school uniforms. Often, mem-
bers of churches participating in the program vol-
unteer to help supervise students on field trips.
"I was so impressed with the way they
responded," James said. "Last year, we began to
recognize individual churches that had participat-
ed. So far we've recognized 13 of the 56 for their
outstanding contributions. It's been a wonderful
thing to hear them talk about their love of educa-
tion."
The program has not gone unnoticed Leon
County instituted a similar faith-based initiative
and credited Gadsden County for creating a suc-
cessful model that could be emulated.
"As a result of what we've done here, a num-
ber of districts have begun to duplicate our
efforts," James said. "They recognized the fact
that they got this idea from Gadsden County."
He's pleased too with the implementation of
uniforms for elementary qnd middle school stu-
dents.
"Uniforms were my idea something I always
wanted to do," he said. "And the alternative
school helped kids with educational challenges
who had lost hope, it gave them an opportunity to
make up what they had fallen behind in. Once you
lose hope, you can't see your way out and nothing
good is going to happen."
New developments at the Gadsden Technical
Institute a program that trains students to become
correctional officers and plans to teach building
and automotive mechanic trades are also pluses,
James said, and his hopes are td use a grant the
district recently received to establish an academy
of law and government as well as an academy of
hospitality and tourism.
"Those are areas we are going to try to focus
on," he said.
He's now able to take on one of the challenges
he set for himself after he was elected working in
every job in the school district, from lunchroom
worker to dean of students and feels like he has
a good group of coaches in place that have the
ability to create thriving athletic programs within
their respective schools.
"I always said I was going to get the best
coaches we could winning builds character. We
want our kids to compete well," he said.
"Academically, we have things headed in the right
direction. But athletics are important too, to the
school and to the community."
James said he's looking forward to his next two
years in office.
"We've had a lot of positive things come
together. We've been able to give teachers sub-
stantial raises two years in a row. This year admin-
istrators and non-instructional staff got raises. We
just need to keep pressing on and we are certainly
headed in the right direction."

Schools get $1.5 million




for character education


by LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor

Gadsden County Schools
Superintendent Reginald James
announced Monday the district
will use a $1.5 million grant to
implement a character education
program.
"Positive Action," a national,
K-12 program with the goal of
promoting a positive self-con-
cept in students, character
development, healthy behavior,
academic achievement and
social and emotional skills, will
initially be implemented in three
Gadsden County schools. The
schools have not .yet been
announced.
The U.S. Department of
Education's Office of Safe and
Drug-Free Schools/Partnerships
in Character Education program
awarded the grant.
"This will be spent over four
years," James said. "It's been
my goal for a couple of years
now to deal with the whole child
... this program will teach hon-
esty, integrity, civic and commu-
nity responsibilities. We're
excited to have this opportuni-
ty."
James has also set aside a day
each October to commemorate
Crystal Riley, the 15-year-old
cheerleader killed in the East
Gadsden High School parking
lot after Homecoming.
"Respect for self and for oth-
ers and character we want to
teach our kids these things,"
James said.
Beverly Nash, PhD., will be
the project director.
"Businesses, churches, fami-
lies virtually everybody will be
touched by this grant," she said.

serve as project director for the
local character education pro-
gram. (Photo by Leslie Roberts)

"We want character education to
be the catalyst for success."
Nash, who worked for the
state Department of Education
and for the Governor's office
prior to taking the Gadsden
County post, said the program
will be instituted in three
demonstration schools during
the 2007-2008 school year. She
will spend the rest of this year
planning its implementation,
which is data-driven.
Additional schools will be
added each year until all schools
in Gadsden County participate.
"This program needs the sup-
port of businesses and church
leaders, to influence our kids to
make good, life-giving deci-
sions," Nash said. "The goal of
character education is to posi-
tively reinforce their behavior."
The Positive Action program
originated in Twin Falls, Idaho
in 1982 and provides 15-minute
lessons to be taught several days
each week. Lessons focus on
physical, intellectual, social and
emotional positive behaviors.
It has earned accolades from


the U.S. DOE's Safe and Drug-
Free Schools division and from
the What Works Clearinghouse,
a 2002 initiative that reviews
character development and aca-
demic performance programs
and evaluates student outcomes
related to positive character
development, prosocial behav-
ior and academic performance,
to name a few.
James said the school district
has seen some academic
improvements, and sees charac-
ter education as a way to
enhance those achievements and
to build on them.
"We realized there was a
missing component .... we need
to deal with character," he said
Monday during a press confer-
ence. "Now, Gadsden County
Schools will deal with the whole
child like we've wanted to ... I'd
like to read a quote from Dr.
Martin Luther King:
'Intelligence plus character -
that is the true goal of educa-
tion.'"
The Positive Action program
has been used in 11,000 schools
nationwide.

Mighty Lions to roar again;



first time in 36 years!


by LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor

For the first time in 36 years, Carter-Parramore
will be home to the mighty Lions Monday night.
Carter-Parramore Academy Principal Willie
Green said the revival of the Lions' basketball
team is a dream come true.
"Some of our students have never participated
in extracurricular activities because they didn't
qualify academically," he said. "We're trying to
revive the Lions' roar so that the community will
know that we're here."
A Gadsden County native, this is Green's first
year as principal of Carter-Parramore. He attend-
ed the school in ninth and 10th grades, then moved
to Shanks High School after schools were inte-
grated. He graduated as an honor student at
Shanks in 1972 and was president of the class.
"I have such great memories of this school, ath-
leticall)yand academically," he said. "Athletically,
we had championship teams in basketball and
football. Academically, there was no better high
school in the area. For me, this is a way to try to
bring pride back to Carter-Parramore."
Carter-Parramore opened as a high school for
grades seven through 12 in 1955. It was named
after two respected Gadsden County educators:
Jenkins Carter and Hattie Parramore.
After being closed for several years, the school
reopened for the 2003-2004 school year as an
alternative school serving grades three through 12.
The first year it was open, around 75 students
enrolled. This year, more than 330 students attend
Carter-Parramore, Green said.
"This year, more than 25 kids merit the A/B
honor roll," he said. "The students we serve are on
the dropout bubble. We're trying to keep them
interested in school. It's what I believe is my call-
ing in life."
Green says he sees athletics as a way to posi-
tively influence students and, as a result, the entire
community.
"My main goal with athletics is to have anoth-
er incentive for our students to rally around, so
they can feel like they're part of our community,"
he said. "If they are playing basketball in the after-


noons, they're not getting in trouble. I really see
this as a carrot we can use to keep them interested
in school, and it does bring us together."
In addition, sports are a teaching tool, athletic
director King Lewis said.
"...It is also important that our athletes team all
the components of team chemistry and team unity
with a strong emphasis on team sportsmanship,"
he said.
Other additions to the school's extracurricular
activities include a chorus, a football team and a
cheerleading squad. Reggie Cunningham is
coaching the varsity and junior varsity boys' bas-
ketball teams; Restee Smith is coach of the girls'
basketball team.
The Lions' varsity boys basketball team was to
have played Apalachicola away Wednesday. The
varsity team is slated to take on Chipley Nov. 20
at 6 p.m.
"I really want people to come out and see the
gym," Green said. "We've refurbished it our col-
ors are blue and white and the floor has been
redone. We've also redone the locker rooms it
looks fantastic," he said.
Tickets for Monday's game are available at the
school's main office or at the door.

Youth
Continued from Page 1
"If they are on the street, we're
going to make contact and we
don't just take the child's word
for why they're not in school," he
said.
Antonio Jefferson, city manager
for Gretna, said there are a lot of
programs scattered throughout
the county but they're not
working because of the
fragmented approach. "We have
to bring back the family and
develop the child from the
wholistic point of view," he said.
But the wholistic approach
needs parents. "The first question
that is asked when a child gets
into trouble at school, with law
enforcement, or with the courts,
is where are the parents?" Dixon
said.
"There are different family
structures, you have single
parents or grandparents might be
raising four or five children,"
said Rep. Curtis Richardson.
County Judge Stu Parsons said
the laws have changed, too.
"There was a time when truancy
was a crime. I get parents who
want to know where they can get
help for unruly children. I could
recommend that they go to
Children and Family Services,
but I don't know what they have
there," he said.
Sheriff Morris Young said
sooner or later many of the
"unruly" children end up with
him. "The problem is we've
allowed children to do anything
they want to do. I have six
(juveniles) in jail on murder
charges right now. Two of them
for cold-bloodied murder and the
parents want me to let them out
on the weekends. For some kids
the first time anyone ever says no
to them is when we put the cuffs
on them," he said.
"A lot of the problems grow out
of parents who haven't
themselves had the chance to
grow up, but we have to decide
what to do with the
troublemakers because they are
here and they have to be dealt
with," said Carmen Cummings,
representing Congressman Allen
Boyd.
Commissioner Brenda Holt
agreed. "We haven't come
together to adjust our programs.
The customers have changed,"
she said.
But disciplining children is a
sticky issue. The group discussed
where discipline stops and abuse
begins. Law enforcement
officials attending the meeting
said an officer can tell vyhen it is
abuse generally by talking to the
child involved, away-from the
parent. Young said there are
children who are abused and that
officers must always keep that in
mind.
"Children," said Dixon, "have
learned the system better than we
have and they have turned it on
us. They know they can call 9-1-
1 and they will," he said.
"I thought the meeting went
well. It's the first step," Dixon
said, adding. "there are a lot more
things we have to discuss."

report directly to the commission.
The city manager's
recommended candidate was not
selected for further interviews.




Art

Appleton said the name "Art
in Gadsden" was chosen
because they knew it would help
visualize art in the county. "At
the time art was not really some-
thing Quincy was known for
although there were (nationally)
known artists from here like

report to me. It reports to the
city manager and city commis-
sion ... candidly, I'm a little
uncomfortable with it, I'll


acknowledge that. But the serv-
ices of this company are needed.
It's not like anybody is trying to
slip you all a Mickey or slide
anything by you."
Commissioner Willie Fagg
called the continuing services
contract a "Pay as you go, eat
what you kill type of contract."
The one-year contract does
not represent a set amount of
money but gives the city the
option to use KMR for grant-
writing services, for example, or
consulting work, Jefferson said.
But Franks, who said she had
contacted the state Ethics


Commissioners seemed weary
of the process and several
complained that they "just
wanted to get it over with". Two
weeks ago, a vote taken for a
CRA manager ended in a tie.
Saying they didn't want to go
through another tie vote, Mayor
Sherrie Taylor adjourned the
meeting for about five minutes
until Commissioner Derrick Elias
arrived.
Still, it took a more than an
hour to decide. Commissioners
had one last question for all three
candidates. After they gave
answers, the first vote was taken
resulting in a tie. They voted
again but this time on the .two
who tied, Godbey and former
Gretna Town Manager Charles
Hayes. Godbey was the- first
choice. Bob Trescott of
Tallahassee was the third
candidate.
If the advisory council and
Godbey fail to agree on a salary,
commissioners said that Hayes
would be the next choice for the
position.


Plan

Continued from Page 1

transmit the document to the
Department of Community
Affairs. DCA will review it and
send it back to the city in 60 to
90 days.
The changes are the result of
the city's original comp plan that
was evaluated by Florida
Planning and Development
Group of Tallahassee. They
provided what is called an
Evaluation Appraisal Report
recommending changes to the
Comprehensive Plan.
So, based on that report, and to
provide consistency with current
state regulations, the city plans to
amend its comp plan.
"While many of the changes
recommended in the report were
minor in nature, the necessary
changes impacted a large portion
of the existing plan. All of the
data and analysis was updated
based on the best available
resources. In order to create a
better and more useful document,
the Comprehensive Plan was
completely re-written," stated a
written report, presented to the
commission.
There are two changes to the
structure of the plan. First, the
existing plan has a single
infrastructure element that
addresses the aquifer, recharge
area, drainage, potable water,
sanitary sewer, and solid waste
disposal. The amended plan
separates these aspects into
individual elements, making it
easier to define each.
The second change is in the
Future Land Use Map (FLUM).
The current FLUM has the same
categories and makeup as the
city's Zoning Map. With both
maps the same, it requires a
comprehensive plan amendment
each time a zoning change is
required.
The proposed FLUM will have
fewer categories which will allow
for more flexibility when making
zoning changes. The residential
categories are reduced from five
to three, commercial categories
are reduced from three to one and
conservation is displayed as an
overlay rather than as an
independent district.
The housing element identifies


Dean Mitchell, Mark Linquist,
and Bill Thursby," she said.
She talked about how, since
they left, the center has been
under very good leadership from
Zoe Gollaway to Grace Maloy
and now Tricia Collins.
"We are grateful to the artists
that are here tonight because it
really starts with your ability to
think creatively. Art In Gadsden
is an exhibition that has always
reflected our diversity as a corn-



Commission to ask whether the
arrangement represented a con-
flict of interest, said advice from
Knowles on the contract left a
bad taste in her mouth.
"For our attorney to advise us
it's not a conflict of interest is a
conflict right there," she said


during last week's meeting.
Knowles will draft a letter to
the Ethics Commission on
behalf of the city asking for its
opinion of the KMR contract.
He asked commissioners to
approve the contract pending an
Ethics Commission response.
"You can terminate (the con-
tract) for good cause, bad cause
or no cause at all," Knowles
said. "I would feel more com-
fortable having a neutral third
party look at it."
"Why can't we wait until we
hear back from the Ethics
Commission to vote?" Frarnks
asked.


the present conditions and types
of housing within the city and
looks for trend to determine what
needs to take place to provide an
adequate supply of safe and
affordable housing in the
community.
The housing element has been
re-written to clarify and better
direct planning for housing in the
city.
The significant changes
include:
*An improved definition and
method for preserving existing
houses.
*Identify and assist
neighborhoods that are in need of
revitalization.
Commissioner Keith Dowdell
asked what is considered
affordable housing.
Habitat for Humanity executive
director Lou Armesto said
because Quincy is grouped along
with Tallahassee for marketing
purposes, a house considered
affordable in Quincy would cost
$206,000.
"Is there any way we can get
out of that (grouping)?" Dowdell
asked.
"No," replied Armesto.
The transportation element has
replaced the traffic circulation
element. While it only required a
roadway system explanation, the
city added ways to include a
comprehensive traffic
management system that has as
its components not only
roadways but public parking
facilities, bicycle and pedestrian
facilities, the airport and rail
systems and other potential
programs.
The significant changes
include:
*Promotion of bicycle and
pedestrian friendly construction
in new developments
*Objectives that tie in with
intergovernmental coordination
and capital improvement plans.
The infrastructure element was
divided into five separate
elements to protect the city's
natural resources. The significant
changes include:
*Aquifer recharge. Includes a
requirement that best
management practices be
maintained for all development.
*Requires a stormwater master
plan with objectives that will tie
it to intergovernmental
coordination elements.
*Potable water includes fire
protection standards.
*No significant changes to
sanitary water or solid waste.
The education element has
already been adopted. It outlines
the requirements for pubic school
location.
Some of the other significant
issues identified by staff, and
according Bogan, based on
citizens complaints include:
*Vacating old and abandoned
plats that have never been
developed.
*Addressing the sun-setting and
non-conforming uses.
*Reduction of current and
future incompatible adjacent
uses.
In other matters, commissioners
voted to:
*Donate two parcels of land to
Habitat for Humanity and sell
two others to the non-profit
organization to build homes for
Quincy residents who qualify.
Construction on the first home is
expected to begin next month.





munity. We see local artisans as
a vast resource that we are lucky
to have at our doorstep. We are
here tonight and we have been
here for the past 18 years to cel-
ebrate our own artists who live
just down the street and over the
hill," Appleton said.
The exhibition runs through
Dec. 31 and center hours are 10
a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through
Saturday and from 1 p.m.'to 5
p.m. on Sunday.



"For one, I don't know how
long it will take the Ethics
Commission to respond,"
Knowles said. "And two, if I'm
confident in the (Ethics
Commission) opinion and go
ahead and start the work, what
do you lose?"


Knowles also said he's eager
to see work on Park Street Park
completed. The city park is
funded by a Community
Development Block Grant.
KMR President Linda
Dilworth said oversight of that
project will be one of the com-
pany's top-priority projects for
the city.
"KMR very much enjoyed
the project we did with the City
of Gretna," she said. "We do
believe just as we have in the
past we can deliver success to
you and provide, by Spring
2007, a park that conforms to
DEP regulations."

12 The Gadsden County Times November 16, 2006


Advocate for children needed for local program


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
It is a grim fact, but thousands of chil-
dren are removed from their homes
because of neglect, abuse or abandon-
ment each year.
In Gadsden County, there are over 70
children who currently fit into that cate-
gory. These children then become a part
of the Guardian Ad Litem Program where
a volunteer is appointed to become famil-
iar with the child and the child's case.
There are currently only 10 Guardian Ad
Litem volunteers in Gadsden County.
"They become an advocate for the


child. They make recommendations to
the court to help ensure a safe, caring,
stable, and permanent environment," said
Marcia Hilty, circuit director of the pro-
gram in the Second Judicial District.
She is certain that even more children
could be helped if there were more vol-
unteers for the program. "There are about
10 volunteers on Gadsden County, but
we'd like to have a lot more," she said.
Hilty said there are three roles a
Guardian Ad Litem can play: Information
Gatherer is a volunteer who collects all
pertinent information and interviews
family, foster parents, teachers and other


persons involved in the child's life. The
Community Advocate volunteer works
with the community to make sure that the
child is receiving the assistance and sup-
port that is needed to succeed. The
Courtroom Advocate volunteer makes
independent recommendations to the
court and becomes the voice of he child,
communicating the best interests of the
child to all involved based on the infor-
mation that has been gathered.
"It's a very rewarding program
because children are helped. The volun-
teer has the opportunity to be a champion
for a child who have been abused or neg-

PACE EH Project meeting Nov. 20


The Gadsden County PACE
EH (Protocol for. Assessing
Community Excellence in
Environmental Health) team
will have its fourth community-
wide meeting Monday, Nov. 20
from 6:30-8 p.m. at the Gretna
City Hall. The PACE project is a

program to educate as many
community members as possi-

practices to help ensure a safe
and healthy environment for
Gadsden County residents.

TDS Self Serv

keep track of I
Consumers are constantly
struggling to keep up with the'
monthly bills. How do you save
time and money when paying
your bills? TDS has come up
with an automated payment sys-
tem called TDS Self Service that
allows customers to take control
of how they make payments.
TDS Self Service is the new
secure service that lets you use a
phone to:
-Make a payment by using a
credit or debit card, or checking
account
-Check account balance
-Review account transactions
-Get payment due date
-Get instructions on how to'
join the "Do Not Call" list
"We've been working hard
to evolve our payment process-
ing system to adjust to the needs
of our customers," said John
Sango, vice president of
Customer Contact Operations
for TDS. "This quick and easy
payment system will cut down
on the cost of checks and stamps
for our customers. Whatever we
can do to make the payment
process easier that's what
we're going to do."
The TDS Self Service system
is completely secure. "All sensi-
tive data is encrypted and TDS
does not keep credit card infor-
mation on record, so you can be
sure none of. your personal
information ends up in the
wrong hands," said Sango.
To start using TDS Self
Service, customers simply need
to have their latest TDS bill, call
1-888-CALL-TDS, and set up a
Personal Identification Number
(PIN). Customers will then be
able to follow easy instructions
through the system to pay their


ments, prioritizing and strategic
planning with the goal of acting
upon environmental health con-
cerns in order to improve the
quality of life in Gadsden
County. Previous meetings
involved Gretna citizens in a
discussion on code enforcement,
water testing and the sewer sys-
tem. This month's meeting par-
ticipants will continue dis-
cussing these topics and other
environmental health issues
identified by concerned citizens.
Also a team of concerned citi-
zens, board members will be
asked to participate in a survey


ice helps

,ill paying
bill or get account information.
"Having your own PIN is an
extra step TDS is taking to give
customers that added security ,"
said Sango.
There are other things you
can do,-along with the TDS Self
Service system, to help keep
yourself and your bills organ-
ized each month:
1. Keep pending bills togeth-
er in one designated area As
soon as the mail arrives, .place
your pending bills in one loca-
tion. This way, nothing will get
misplaced.
2. Don't separate each bill
into a separate folder All pend-
ing bills should be together so
they can be paid without search-
ing multiple places to find them.
3. Designate two to four
scheduled days per month to pay
your bills Find a day or two
each month and do all your bill
paying on those days. It'll save
you time and stress.
4. Pay your bills in one place
To speed up your bill paying
efforts, always pay bills in one
place, whether it's your desk or
the kitchen table. This area
should be equipped with all of
your supplies such as a calcula-
tor, checkbook, and envelopes.
5. Immediately record your
paid bills As soon as you pay
each bill, immediately record
the payment. If you wait until
later, there's a good chance
you'll forget.

Service, please call 1-888-

went on to a career in coaching,
all the way to the less glamorous
levels of professional football.
One of the guys was
remembering a particular tough
opponent. I think it was Cairo.
Big guys on the line. Really big
guys. He couldn't emphasize how
big, how strong their opponent
was. Al, though, could only
respond by asking if he saw those
two cheerleaders.
Then there was the story about
another game, I think this one
was Malone. The running back
was tearing up the field when he
was hit both high and low by
defensive players. Hit hard.
Really hard. His helmet, kind of a
dark brown color, went rolling
from the heap out into the open.
Billy Yon Peacock scooped up
that loose helmet and raced 55
yards to the end zone with it.
Wimberley provided a poignant
moment when he recalled, not
being a star, but being a part of
something. It was a crowd...a
really big crowd...probably 500
people plus a big brass band.
They were gathered at the Quincy
train station, back when Quincy
had a train station, to welcome
Lewis Gregory home.
Apparently the Air Force
wouldn't let Gregory fly his P38
back to Florida.
Then the only female voice in
the room said quietly, "I was in
that band."
Al Bassett kind of summed up
the mood when he reminded
those that had never left Gadsden
County that there just "ain't
nothing like Ole Quincy. It's
good to be back."

On another note about old

Saturday in a memorial service at
a very appropriate place, the

Col. Boggs died July 16.

Pilot Club seeks to end brain injuries


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

Every year, more than one
million children sustain brain
injuries. Bicycle accidents cause
an average of 130,000 brain
injuries to children and another
30,000 children each year
receive permanent brain disabil-
ities from injuries.
The Pilot Club of Quincy is
involved in a program to create
public awareness through an
award-winning children's pro-
gram for pre-school to third
grade. The program is called
"BrainMinder Buddies!" which
stresses that prevention is the
only cure for brain injuries.
Every 15 seconds someone in
the nation suffers a brain injury.
Brain trauma is the leading
cause of death among children
and teenagers in the United
States. The program, which is
taken by local Pilot Club mem-
bers into the schools and day-
care centers, is designed to teach
a child how to prevent brain
injuries to protect their brain.
"This is an excellent program
and the children have learned so
much," said Jane Hinson a
member of the Pilot Club of
Quincy. She said that almost
1,000 children have been taught
the program.
Puppets and activity books


Pilot Club of Quincy member Jane Hinson and Shannon Allen, Outreach Librarian for the
Gadsden County Public Library system, recently presented the BrainMinder Buddies Program to
pre-schoolers at Kinder Kastle Child Care. (Photo special to the Times)


are used as teaching aids. Kids
are taught that Gerald Giraffe
wears his helmet when he rides'
his bicycle, scooter, or skate-
board and that Penny Panda sits
in a car seat or wears a seatbelt
whe she rides in a car. Martin
Monkey plays safely at the play-


ground and Fiona Fox looks
both was before she crosses the
street. At the end of the presen-
tation, each child is given a col-
oring book.
The Pilot Club of Quincy,
which was chartered in 1947,
also has a bike helmet safety


program. The helmets are dis-
tributed during safety rodeos
through the county. Hinson said
more than 100 helmets were
given to children in Gretna dur-
ing the Harvest Day
Celebration.


Farm Bureau Women re-establish unit


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
The Florida Farm Bureau
Women's Committee of Gadsden
County recently held its kickoff
luncheon to re-establish an
organization in Gadsden County.
Dan Buchanan, field represen-
tative for the Farm Bureau
Federation, Rachel Kudelko,
Farm Bureau Federation staff,
and Ginny Paarlberg, chair of the
Florida Farm Bureau Women's
Committee, spoke to thelocal
organization about the impor-
tance of the Women's Committee
and the survival of agriculture in
Florida.
Any woman who is a member
of the Farm Bureau, who holds
any kind of insurance policy
(business or personal) is consid-
ered a. member. "All women are
encouraged to attend a least one
meeting before they decide to
become involved," said Jan
Summerford. The next meeting
will be held on Nov. 28, at 6 p.m.
at the Gadsden Farm Bureau
Office at 2111 W. Jefferson
Street. A chili supper will be
served.
S According to information sup-
plied by Summerford, the Farm
Bureau Women's Committee'was
organized for the purpose of
implementing Farm Bureau poli-
cy goals and objectives. It is a
support for the. Florida Farm
Bureau.
Some of the activities include
S those that deal with legislation,
membership, youth
activities/agriculture in the class-
room, public relations, and rural
health and safety activities.
The organization believes that
for Florida agriculture to contin-
ue to be a productive and prof-
itable industry, it must continue
to have a strong and influential
organization to voice its concerns
and issues. The organization is
always looks to recruit new
members.
They also encourage enroll-
ment in vocational programs,
Future Farmers of America, 4-H
Clubs and other youth related
organizations.

"The main goals of CHOICE
are eliminating health disparities
in Gadsden County through
research, training, coalition
building and. social
transformation."
It's the social transformation
part I'm having a little trouble
with and let me state for the
record that I had a hotdog
Saturday -'Burgess said there is
"just not money for that (healthy
foods)." If this research is geared
toward residents of an
historically low-income county,
who suffer a higher rate of
diabetes, heart disease, stroke and
other illnesses than some other
populations, wouldn't it make
sense to showcase meals that are
both low-cost AND healthy? Diet
soda doesn't cost any more than
the regular kind.
Look, one hotdog a heart attack
does not make. But if the purpose
of the project is preventative
health care, it makes sense to me
that organizers would serve foods
that don't add saturated fat, salt,
sugar or cholesterol to a person's
diet.
Burgess said CHOICE
organizers have talked about
serving fruit or other healthy
alternatives at the next Health
Care Revival whole wheat
muffins with a selection of fruits,
nuts and low-fat cheeses and
accompanying sugar-free drink
options sound good to me and
wouldn't cost an arm and a leg to
provide, although somebody
would have to take time to cook
the muffins or whatever.
I understand how a budget
crunch and a time deficit can lead
to quick, easy, inexpensive meals
that aren't exactly healthy eating.
I just think that if an organization
is taking four years to stress
prevention and study health
disparities in Gadsden County, if
social transformation is part of
the plan, it might be a good idea
to flaunt some tasty examples of
low-fat, nutrient-rich, low- or no-
cholesterol foods as a way to
bring that about.

Jonah Anderson came all the way from Massachusetts to enjoy the music, soak up some sun, and help out with the recycling.



Down on the farm!


A celebration of music, art, philanthropy

Sir Charles Atkins and the Florida State University Blues Br
afternoon.
by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor


Except for a few hours
Saturday night, the weather was
picture perfect for "Down on
:the Farm 3" a celebration of
music, art, and philanthropy on
the Spanish Moss Farm at the
end of Ball Farm Road, a few
miles northeast of the Quincy'
city limits.
By Friday afternoon, people
were setting up campsites over
much of the sprawling 400-plus
acres. Arts and crafts vendors
were also getting ready, and
international cuisine was cook-
ing in expectation of the more
than 2,000 visitors who will
spend from several hours to
three days at the concert.
"This is great," said Jonah
Anderson, as he finished off a
plate of black beans and
Spanish rice from the Spanish
Moss Cafe.
In addition to enjoying the
food and the music Anderson,
who traveled from
Massachusetts, and several of
his friends from North Carolina
were handling the recycling for
the three-day event.
"I'm into saving the environ-
ment and it's a cool thing to
do," he said.
Things got going early when
the Florida State University
Blues Band, featuring regional
blues legend Sir Charles Atkins,
started jammin' on the Sunset
Stage.
Paul Levine, one of the pro-
moters, looked around and a
steady stream of cars, SUVs,
and RVs started arriving. "I
don't know how many people
to expect but the pre-sales went
well," he said.
The event was more than
just a party though. The
Spanish Moss Foundation,
Panic Fans for Food and
Second Harvest of the Big
Bend collected non-perisahble
food items from many of the
guests.
There was also a clothing
drive to benefit Goodwill
Industries of Quincy. And
Gadsden County school chil-
dren also benefitted from the
donation of new and used
instruments.
Levine said the foundation is
also proud to support and pro-
mote the Boys and Girls Club
of the Big Bend, Habitat for
Humanity, the Music Maker
Relief Foundation, and The


N".


Sixteen-month-old Matelea
waited patiently while her
mom set up her massage ther-
apy booth


and got things kicked off Friday

Tipirtina Foundation.
At the "Kids Barn", over the
three-day festival, kids could
enjoy nature walks, arts and
crafts, face painting, magic
, .tricks, pIaking punuical irstiiu-
inerits, making lostiune,, niak- '
ing picture frames, their own
musical jam, outdoor games,
storytime, and more.
With over fifty bands on
three stages the music ran the
gamut, from Ivan Neville's
Dumpstaphunk serving up an
original New Orleans funk to
Stillwood, a five-piece southern
rock band from Tallahassee.
The farm rocked.
"We have so many friends
from the local businesses, local
government and this wonderful
community to thank for helping
us make this incredible gather-
ing a reality," Levine said.

March of Dimes lights up


courthouse, lives with


Prematurity Awareness Day


The Gadsden County Times November16, 2006 15
The Gadsden County
Courthouse was awash in
pink and blue light Monday
night to draw attention to the
March of Dimes's
Prematurity Awareness Day.
In recent years, the March
of Dimes has focused on pre-
mature births because it is
the number one killer of new-
borns and is a major cause of
serious health problems cost-
ing billions of dollars annual-
ly.
Nearly one-half million
baby boys and girls are born
prematurely each year.
Included in the court-
house prematurity aware-
ness campaign was a
Family Health Day featuring
health screenings and educa-
tional materials provided by
area nursing students.
Also, a performance by
the African Dance Theatre
entertained the crowd with
live music and dance. For 7
more information on pre-
venting premature births,
contact the March of Dimes :
at (850) 422-3152.

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.

Football is a game which two teams or eleven players try to move a ball by running or passing, across the other teams'goal. This is called a touchdown. Scoring can also
occur when the ball is kicked through the goal posts. This is called a field goal. Each team has chances, which are called downs, to get the ball oc-er the other team's goal line,
unless the defending team takes away the ball.
The main type of football is tackle football. There are other versions of the game, such as touch or flag football that are not as rough. These versions are often played by
younger players, to avoid injuries. In these versions of the game n _e o, of being tackles by drf-nders the ball carrier is touched, or his flag is taken away from him. This
action replaces the event of tackling from needed to occur as part of the game. To assure that all rules of play are followed, line judges and referees govern over the game.
Players and coaches must follow the rules of the game according to the :fico.l s decisions.
In the United States there are three basic levels of organized football. These levels are high school, college, and professional. There are also recreational levels that many
children, both boys and girls, play throughout the year. The modern ro Ine of *,,;Itll was derived from ihe game of rugby, which was created in the United Kingdom. In the late
1800's college students began playing the game against each other. The rules were modified by school officials, in order to make the game safer to play, as there were many
injuries in early games. By 1912, American football had become what we know today, with the regulation sized football field being instituted.

B8 The Gadsden County Times November 16, 2006


Pastor, veteran honored in Concord


by LESLIE
ROBERTS
Times News Editor

A congregation of family,
friends and church members took
time out Saturday afternoon to
honor their pastor, the late Rev.
William Maxwell.
It was especially appropriate
that the ceremony during which
Maxwell's widow, Estella, was pre-
sented with an American flag took
place Nov. 11, as it was both
Maxwell's birth date and Veterans
Day.
A World War II veteran,
Maxwell had also served as pastor


of New St. Mary M.B. Church in
Concord, where the ceremony was
held, as well as of New Jerusalem
M.B. Church and Mount Hosea
M.B. Church in Quincy.
"Anything about church he real-
ly loved," Mrs. Maxwell said.
Born Nov. 11, 1919, Maxwell
served in the U.S. Army during
World War II. He died Jan. 8.
His example led church member
Carter Hickman to join the military.
"He had been my pastor for the
last 32 years," Hickman said. "I
joined the military because of
him."
Hickman served in the U.S.


Army 25 years before retiring.
"It gave me a different view-
point altogether," he said. "It made
me really realize what it takes to
keep freedom alive."
After the ceremony, Gadsden
County Veterans Service Office
Director Wes Hinson and others
adjourned to Havana Community
Park, where they observed the third
annual "Maxwell Day."
Mrs. Maxwell said she was
touched by the recognition her late
husband received.
"It just makes me feel proud,"
she said. "I feel so proud and hon-
ored for everybody coming out."


Veterans
Continued from Page B1
it's because just about every
man, woman and child in the coun-
try has a connection to someone
who has served in the military."
After the East Gadsden High
School Junior ROTC unit posted
the colors, U.S. Army veteran
Kenneth Gay sang the "National
Anthem" and Havana City
Councilwoman Shirley McGill,
whose husband is a veteran, read
the names of those from Gadsden
County who were killed in the line
of duty.
"The price of freedom is high,"
Moore said. "We should never for-
get those who paid the price."
After a moment of silence and
the playing of "Taps," the EGHS
junior ROTC unit, which per-
formed in a Veterans Day parade in
Tallahassee Friday and during the


Florida State University football
game Saturday, performed a flag
presentation ceremony as the poem,
"Old Glory" was read.
Then it was time for keynote
speaker John T. Elkins Jr., captain,
U.S. Navy Medical Corps retired,
to take the podium.
A Havana native, Elkins gradu-
ated from Havana High School at
17 and immediately joined the
Merchant Marines. He later served
in the Army and the Navy, compil-
ing 43 years of service in all.
A cardiologist, he was the first
Army doctor to oversee the U.S.
space program. His gentle, self-
deprecating humor drew laughter
from the crowd then he moved on
to the main topic: Veterans and the
sacrifices they made.
"The greatest honor today goes
to the veterans who are here," said
Elkins. "It is said that World War II
veterans are dying at the rate of


1,000 per day.
"All veterans' service is noble,
necessary and freely given. We
salute you here, veterans,s as well as
veterans around the United States
and around the world. These veter-
ans are a national treasure. If you do
not know a veteran, I challenge you
today to go find one, find two, find
three."
He also challenged the crowd to
support veterans whether they
agreed with the wars they fought in.
"Our flag says, 'Don't tread on
me' ... that's what we should all
believe when threatened by an out-
side force," he said. "None has the
freedom to act irresponsibly when
analyzing war. The lack of support
and opposition to veterans of the
Korean and Vietnam wars is a fes-
tering blemish on American socie-
ty. Any time American troops go to
war, they need the support of the
American people."

celebration at
Havana Elementary

Students at Havana
Elementary School are deter-

an exciting week of activities
promoting good character by
remaining drug free!
The faculty and staff partici-
pated in a full week (Nov.6-9) of
activities as each day empha-
sized a reminder to kick drugs.
Monday, students received red
ribbons to wear throughout the
week, as well as pencils and lol-
lipops.
Tuesday was just as reward-
ing as everybody cuddled their
favorite stuffed animal to
emphasize "Hugs Not Drugs."
Drugs had a tough time
Wednesday as students and staff
wore their favorite boots to
"Boot Out Drugs." To close out
the week Thursday, the students
and staff united in their efforts to
"Team Up Against Drugs."
Everyone wore their favorite
team jersey.
Staff and students came
together for an assembly pro-
gram and a cheering contest to
culminate the week. Assistant
Principal Ronald Peterson, was
the keynote speaker.
He mesmerized students
from kindergarten to grade five
with talking animals and letters
of reality-written messages.
Students laughed, listened and
learned that drugs kill. Through
creative demonstration and sin-
cerity, Mr. Peterson brought the
message of the danger of drugs
to reality. Additionally, he
stressed the importance of good
character and making good
choices in life.
Grade levels competed in
their cheers. All cheers had to
