Funds run out

for public

defenders
by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
A fund established by the Legislature to pay for
public defenders and court-appointed attorneys
has run out of money and will not be able to pay
its bills on time. More money, however, will be
available in December since the money is
distributed quarterly.
"As of this week, all funds in both the Criminal
and Civil Conflict Counsel Categories have been
exhausted. We have processed disbursements
equaling two quarters of funding in 18-19 weeks.
The Justice Administration Committee (JAC) is
working withth e Governor's Office of Policy and
Budget and the Legislature on an early release of
funds to alleviate the immediate deficit."
"This level of spending and expenditure
projections has caused great concern on the part
of all entities... the JAC is unable to process any
payments until we have received an additional
release of funds," wrote the JAC to the following
agencies: state attorneys, public defenders,
collateral regional counsels, and Guardian Ad
Litem programs.
"That means when January rolls around and the
other fund are released about half of that will be
spent already," said Grant Slayden, Trial Court
Administrator for the Second Judicial District,
which includes Gadsden County.
The Justice Administration Commission said
Friday that the money ran out Nov. 9.
Until the funds are released attorneys will not be
paid for handling cases nor will their expert
witnesses, psychologists or court reporters.
Outside attorneys are hired to defend indigent
clients when there is a conflict in the case or
when no public defender is available.
"It comes at a bad time of the year for people
who have done the work and expect to be paid,"
Slayden said.
Just what it means to Gadsden County is
unclear. "It could have a ripple effect. With fewer
conflict attorneys in the pool, the price could go
up, it may take longer for cases to go to trial
which means jails could get backed up," he said.

Gadsden beats

statewide trend

by LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor
Gadsden County Schools was one of
the few school districts in the state to
see an increase in enrollment this year.
It's a feat Superintendent of Schools
Reginald James credits to local school
improvements.
"I attribute that to school
performance," he said. "I really
believe when schools are performing
well, people find a way to get their
children to those schools. This is the

second year in a row we've seen an
increase. It's one of the barometers I
use to gauge success in schools."
Based on a survey conducted by the
Florida Department of Education in
October, there are 2.64 million full-
time equivalent (FTE) students
enrolled in Florida. During the last 10
years, Florida has experienced slower
growth in enrollment, but this year
marks the smallest increase in over
two decades.
Historical data is used to project
enrollment for the coming school year.
. "Projecting student enrollment is
critical for state and local officials to
plan their budgets," said state
Education Commissioner John Winn.
"Economnic influences, as well as


historical data, should be included in
projections. We will be working with
school districts to develop best
practices for projections."
Nearly half of Florida's 67 school
districts 29 saw a decline in
enrollment this year. Overall, the
number of students enrolled in
Florida's public schools increased only
slightly compared to last year.
Franklin, Glades, Madison and
Monroe counties had. the biggest
declines, losing between 3-11 percent
of their enrollment compared to last
year. The largest increase in
enrollment was in Flagler County
schools, which saw a gain in
enrollmentof 9.95 percent.
In Gadsden County, 6,128 students

Vandals cause
thousands
in damage

to city's fiber
optic cable lines

by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
Vandals or someone who knew
exactly what they were doing cut into
the fiber optic coils at Magnolia Forest
causing thousands of dollars in
damages, said Netquincy director Ray
Eaton.
"It could have been someone thinking
it was copper or it could have been
someone who wanted to do damage to
the City of Quincy. Without any proof I
am reluctant to say it was a
competitor,"Eaton said.
While the city's insurance will cover
the financial loss, re-splicing the tiny
wires is time consuming and expensive.
"Inside each coil is about 96 hair thin
lines. When a line is cut, a highly
trained individual with special skills
has to go in and re-attach each one of
the fibers by hand. It may take two days
or more," Eaton said.

enrolled for the 2005-2006 school
year, an increase of .48 percent.
Projections for the 2006-2007 school
year indicate a 2.14 percent increase in
enrollment in Gadsden County
schools.
Enrollment data is a critical factor in
helping state and local officials plan
annual budgets. The Office of
Economic and Demographic Research
is a research arm of the Florida
Legislature. During the summer they
convened a public school enrollment
estimating conference to forecast the
number of public school capital outlay
and Florida Education Finance
Program FTE students.

wrestles with

funding request
by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
"We have a problem in Quincy. We have
lost 23 people, babies, this year," Kelly
Parker, executive director of the Healthy Start
Coalition, said Tuesday night during the
regular meeting of the city commission.
She wanted the city to give $5,000 to pay
Ron Sachs Communications for a media
campaign. The company, she said, would use
$4,500 of the money to design a public
relations campaign to reach a target audience.
The rest, when coupled with-expected $5,000
each in donations from the Board of County
Commissioner and the Gadsden County
Health Cotincil, would implement the plan.
Initially, commissioners tabled ,the request
saying that they had to look at the finances of
the city before making a commitment. "We

Happy birthday,' Havana


There'll be dancin' in the streets when town turns 100


by LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor
The day Havana celebrates its centennial, there will be
dancing in the streets.
Although the town's centennial celebration is Dec. 9-10
to accommodate folks' work
schedules, the town was
incorporated Dec. 5, 1906.
"We want people to enjoy
celebrating our rich history," said
Karen Myrick, a member of the
Havana Centennial Celebration
steering committee established by
the Havana Town Council.
""There's going to be a street dance
Saturday night, lots of
entertainment and food and arts and
crafts we'll have people on hand
to talk about how tobacco barns
were constructed and there will be
antique cars and trucks in the
parade it's going to be a lot of fun."
The Florida, Georgia and Alabama Railroad put Havana
on the map; Scottish planters who'd migrated there from
other Eastern states discovered early on it had an ideal
climate for tobacco growing.
After the Civil War, the town's biggest cash crop was
shade tobacco. Naming the small Gadsden County town


Havana was a natural, given the Cuba capital's renowned
high-quality cigar production.
And just in case you don't know, it is pronounced just
like the Cuban capital.
"When I went to Florida State, we all rode the bus
because nobody could afford to drive a car, and the bus
driver would say, 'All out for Hay-
vanna,'" recalls Nell Cunningham,
79, Havana native and chairwoman
of the Havana Centennial
Committee. "It used to make me so
mad."
Cunningham's maternal
grandparents came to Havana in
1905 from Alabama; her paternal
grandfather, J.H. Gray, settled in
the Concord area and was one of
the county's first commissioners.
Centennial events kick off at 9:30
a.m. Dec. 9 with a welcome from
Mayor T.J. Davis and dedication of
a historical marker; the Havana
Elementary School Chorus will sing at 10 a.m. on the
main stage on First Street NW and the parade kicks off at
11 a.m.
Throughout the day, visitors can watch the fine art of
blacksmithing, the intricacies of while oak basket weaving
along with quilters, weavers, potters and woodcarvers

Apple chooses


Gadsden schools for


conference on use of


computers in classes


by LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor

When eighth-grade Gadsden
County students got laptop com-
puters along with textbooks at
the beginning of the school year,
no one could say with any cer-
tainty how well incorporation of
mobile technology in middle
schools would fare.
Three months into it, the kids
love it, the teachers love it and
schools superintendent Reginald
James he loves it too was
chosen to represent Florida at a
national Macintosh computer
conference in San Diego recent-
ly.
"I was honored. I was one of
six people they selected
throughout the nation," he said.
James answered questions
from other school officials and
company representatives about
how the initiative is working in
Gadsden County, and received a
standing ovation after his pres-'
entation.
Macintosh provided the local
school district with more than
400 laptops in August after dis-
trict officials applied for a grant
to help fund bringing ibooks
into classrooms.
Teachers from participating
schools Havana Middle
School, James A. Shanks


Middle School and West
Gadsden High School took a
four-day class at Tallahassee
Community College to brush up
on their computer skills.
Now, they're a natural.
Students use them to check
homework assignments, do
research, write stories and create
podcasts.
They take notes on them.
They create presentations with
them. They send and receive
email.
They're regular ibook
experts.
"The students are excited,
and the company is excited,"
James said. "This is a way to
bring the tools of the 21st centu-
ry to our kids."
School officials also hope
laptops will help improve stan-
dardized test scores, attendance,
promotion and middle school
completion. They're hopeful
each area in which students are
tested will see an increase in at
or above grade level perform-
ance.
Goals of the local laptop ini-
tiative call for 90 percent of
eighth-graders to use the com-
puters for language arts, social
studies and science classes and
65 percent of eighth-graders to
use them for math classes.

High tech is high

on Christmas lists


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
For Christmas 2006 every-
thing tech is hot.
We might as well face it,
gadgets are in and just about
everything else is out for teens,
'tweens, and the adults in your
life. As the price of laptops tum-
ble, more and more people are
making the change from the
desktop PC. Upgrades are a great
gift, too, and come in all price
ranges; and digital cameras are
very popular this season.
If you just must have another
gizmo, the satellite radios have
really taken off. Or try the noise-
cancelling ear buds or head
phones. The ever popular
Bluetooth wireless or stereo
headset make nice gifts for the
college student or young profes-
sional.
Computers aren't the only
thing flying off the shelves.
Televisions, (mostly flat screens)
computer accessories, electronic
navigation systems (for the man
who never gets lost), mini cam-
corders, cameras, XBOX 360,


Zune, and iPods are all sure to
please.
Not into gizmos? Here's some
help.
For him: car accessories such
as the automedic kit for quick
fixes, screwdriver kits for Mister
Fixit, game tables (pool, ping
pong), portable wine cellar, pjs
and robes or jewelry and outer-
wear.
For her: jewehy, fragrances,
loungewear, massage cushion,
gift certificate for a day of pam-
pering, activewear and more jew-
elry.
For teens: Playstation 2
games, new DVD releases, new
CD releases, flip phones, video
chair, and clothes.
For 'tweens: same as above.
For children: (girls)
Pollyworld, anything Bratz,
Barbie, Cheetah Girls or Dora,
telephones, Happy Feet, hair
stuff, novelty socks, and clothes.
(Boys) Mega Bloks, Hot
Wheels, Morph'Nator, scale cars,
Power Rangers, and remote con-
trolled cars.

By all accounts, David Grant DeBord was on his way up in the
world.
He played left tackle on the Quincy High School football team -
was a member of the famous 1965 team, which went undefeated -
and earned a scholarship to Marshall University, where he went
after graduating from high school in 1967.
Three years later, on Nov. 14, 1970, he was killed in a plane crash
along with 74 other people, most of them team members, coaching
staff apd fans headed back home to Huntington, West Virginia after
a game in North Carolina.
It was an inconceivable calamity for Huntington and for
Quincy.
"David's father, Frank DeBord, had volunteered for the team as
equipment manager before becoming equipment manager at FSU,"
said Carlos Deason, who coached football at Quincy High School

Contemplation..



Swine Time was a real

Climax for the weekend


Usually by the time Friday rolls
around, all I want to do is go home,
close and lock my door, and not show
my smiling face again until Monday.
Such was the case this past weekend.
For the past few years I had been
thinking about going to Swine Time, a
festival in nearby Climax, GA, and
wanting to see what it was all about. A
friend who lives in West Palm Beach
is from Climax and she's always
talking about it.
Friday afternoon, I decided I wasn't
going to stay in the house all weekend
and do laundry and watch television. I
was going to get off the couch and get
out.
I made up my mind and hoped my
sister would go with me. She said yes
to the invitation and off we went
Saturday morning. It was a wonderful
day to be out. The air was crisp and
cool and temperature was just right.
After about 45 minutes we arrived in
Climax. There were cars parked all the
way back to GA Highway 84, but I
was determined to get up close. Being
a reporter, it doesn't matter to me what
it is- festival, car wreck, plane crash,
or beauty pageant- I go right up front.
I know my sister was wondering
where in the world I was going as I
passed all of the arrows that pointed to
(paid) "parking." I was right, we found
a spot right there at. the event, a few
yards away from the vendors. It paid


bunkerr down

off, too, because each time we filled
our arms with packages, it was a short
walk back to the car to unload. Plus,
the parking was free.
The festival was great. The music had
a little something for everyone. The
vendors had nice quality items if that's
what you wanted and junk, too, if you
were looking to buy, haggle, or barter.
And, I have never met nicer people in
my life. I dare say we made friends
with a few of the vendors and invited
them to Quincy.
The locals were ready to chat it up
with us about their city, their history
and their festival. There is a lot of
history there and someone must have
had a short course on "The History Of
Climax" because they were ready and
willing to part with all kinds of tidbits.
Now, I have seen a greasy pig contest
before. But the "Swine Time" greasy
pig contest was the best. I laughed
harder Saturday afternoon, watching
kids try to catch pigs, than I have
laughed in a long time. The man sitting
next to me explained the intricacies of
catching the greased pig. Remember
this if you ever have to catch one: it's
all in the hind legs. "Don't grab 'em
around the middle or they'll slip out.
Grab dem hind legs and you got
yourself a pig," he advised.
By 4 'clock things started winding
down and we were ready to go. We

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


I've got to graduate sometime!


Honest.


I need to get out of this coaching
business. I'm only in it for the money. And
I don't really know all that much about
football anyway....
I know Pat Bailey stopped in the hole
once back when he was in the ninth grade.
We had a polite discussion on pulling
guards NOT STOPPING in the hole! I did
most of the talking. Pat was pretty quiet
back in those days. His twin brother,
Byron, talked a lot more.
I played baseball with Mike Byrd's
grandfather. That makes Mike awful
young... .or me very, very old. Mike has a
smile as big as all outdoors. And, pound for
pound, he's about as tough as they come.
Ashley Davis shook my hand at every
practice and before every game for four
years. And he acted like he was truly glad
to see me. And he appreciated that line
about "wishing it was three o'clock and we
were just getting here!"
Andy Canington was near 'bout as quiet
as Patrick. And he can take a lick, I
guarantee you that. Coast showed up a
couple of years ago from California. I
asked him about the surf and why his hair
wasn't long and shaggy.
Warren Floyd stopped telling me how
"we" ought to be doing it about halfway
through his junior year. I was eternally
grateful. Brian missed a couple of seasons
and that sure hurt. Randy Myricks was in
the same boat. I would have liked to have
had those guys around for the last four
years.
Mike Quinn would sulk when I got on
him about not running hard. I loved it! His
dad did exactly the same thing when he
played. And Austin Peltier was always
good for a little baseball talk between
kicks.....
Seniors! There is something very special
about them!
We had eleven on this year's team. Five
of them, Pup, Honk, Pat, Sapp and Mudcat,
have been together for all four high school
years. That is fairly significant to me-it
was exactly four years ago that Coach
Palmer called me back into active duty.
I figure we all experienced a few
moments of trepidation when we first
stepped on that practice field in August of
2003. It sure was hot. 'Course, I was just


standing there. I didn't have to do the
running. Or the blocking. Or the tackling.
Or the bleeding. Or the moaning.
I admired the ones that did. And I was in
awe the next day when they came back for
more!
"Coach, did they have those leather
helmets back when you played?"
Everybody wants to be a comedian.
"No, Sapp, I'm not that old!"
Pup would ask about his older brother
who played on a good football team here in
1984. "He wasn't afraid like you are. And
he was much prettier!" I can be a comedian
too!
Mike would frown his face up in thought
when I'd give him the choice between
Tennessee and Florida. "I'll take Florida
and ten." I reckon he would the young
rascal! We'd bet a meal or two on the
college games as the season progressed.
'Course, it wasn't much of a bet and we
never kept up with who was
winning.....only one of us was sucker
enough to pay for dinner anyway.
"Coast, what is the Joaquin Valley like?
And have you ever been swimming in the
Kern River?" Terry's eyes would get big.
He couldn't believe I could have a thought
that didn't revolve around him blocking the
back side linebacker!
Warren and I talked about John Milton.
Longfellow's "The Children's Hour". And
a rather obscure poem by William Ernest
Henley.
Pelt liked the Cardinals o. k. And he was
proud for me when they won the World
Series. But I suspect, deep down, he's a
Braves fan at heart.
As Pat grew into a football player.....he
still didn't say much. Byron had to do the
talking for both of them. He didn't do the
eating for both! Pat would come over to the
house as a sophomore and eat pizza or
lasagna or Mississippi mud cake like there
wasn't going to be no tomorrow. Warren
would bring the Gatorade. Cat would show
up. "Cat, this meal is for the "0" line."
"Coach, I've got to check on my boys."
When these guys first started coming to

It wasn't as bad as I thought.
Thanksgiving and other holidays are
always chock full of unrealistic
expectations; watch enough Publix and
Hallmark commercials on TV and
you'll begin to feel downright
unAmerican if your Christmas does not
include a cozy fireplace, exquisite
holiday China and stress-free family
holiday fun in a well-appointed living
room with a lavishly decorated tree as
the focal point.
We had a nice Thanksgiving this
year, despite the fact that it was the
first year my husband's brother, the
one who died of melanoma in
February, was not there.
Difficult, yes, particularly for his
wife, his mother and his children. But
he was there, in some ways, in the
years of family custom that continue
and in the discussion of ways in which
he is being remembered.
It was our first Thanksgiving with the
grandson he didn't live to see born, a
new addition to the family and a gift of
hope as well.
I saw some of my blood kin, too, and
talked on the phone to those who live
further away.
I did slip into Lotto lunacy
temporarily; I do that about twice a
year, buy a ticket (to support
education, of course) and spend a good

three days planning how to spend the
loot once I win (I normally add a
charitable donation toward the end of
the list after I've exhausted the me, me,

that donation pledge on there as sort of
a bargaining chip. If I win, I'll donate a
large lump sum to charity. I promise.
Really.
Then I get disgusted with myself,

that someone in Tampa, Miami or

It was on our trip back from visiting

down Interstate 10, bellies full of

fire in the distance.
When we got closer, we could see it

Flames billowed wildly as a woman

Where is the help?

We were told at the meeting that help is on the
way. I want to ask the question, When?
I wonder is help going to come too late. Are
we going to get help after our cars get
repossessed, or after our landlords evict us, or
after we have lost everything else because we
are trying to pay these high utility bills. When I
am told that a family lives in a four bedroom
house with central air and heat, and their bill is
never over a hundred dollars, and I stay in a
four room house and my bill doubles theirs
something is wrong.
I don't have central air and heat, I pulled out
my kerosene heater about a month ago, and my
bill hasn't changed. In my opinion, you all have
these new meters set a certain way. My meter is
running faster than the fastest animal in the
world, the cheetah. Don't get me wrong, we
need our electricity, we want to pay for it with
money not with blood and tears.
I know some people get tired of me writing
these letters, but I am not going to stop until
help comes. One time I thought it was just me,
no one else was having these problems; maybe I
was being a troublemaker, but when people stop
me in the streets and tell me they are having the
same problems, that keeps me writing these
letters. So, before I end this letter I have on
thing to say. I want to tell whoever is in charge
that I am using kerosene now, so they can come
and turn my meter down. I ask again, Where is
the help?

Country music
Dear Sir or Madam:
This is about your recent column about
country music [Hunker Down with Kes, Nov.
16].
I agree there has been murder in country
music. There's even a song about it.
Turn to 93.3 and listen to Monte Bitner. There
is real country music there 24 hours.
Music put out these days is mostly, I think,
tuneful noise, sometimes no tune. I can't wait,
usually, until it's over. Music should be
beautiful sound, but today it's clap-trap.
I wish the industry (musical) would reject the
noise and bring back the beauty of fine music,
country, classical and sacred.
Sincerely,
Bascom Logan Mahaffey

Winning big...Tragedy

makes me feel like a winner


keeping these tips in mind will
also make it a safe one. And
the less time spent waiting for
a tow truck to get your car out
of a ditch means more time for
a second slice of pumpkin pie.


Winterize

your car

The holidays mean spending
time with your family. And
for many Floridians, that
means driving in conditions
you might not be accustomed
to. Whether you're packing up
the minivan for a long drive
north or flying to your
destination and renting a car,
here are some winter driving
tips for those Floridians who
haven't picked up an ice
scraper in some time.
Winter weather can be hard
on all of us, but it can be
especially hard on your car.
That's why it's important to
take steps to "winterize" your
vehicle before driving north.
Battery check: You won't
get far if cold weather puts
your car battery in a deep
freeze. So have battery fluid
levels, battey posts and cable
connectors checked by a
reliable mechanic.
Assess you antifreeze level:
Verify that you have the
appropriate level and
concentration of
antifreeze/coolant in your car
before venturing out on winter
roads.
This is especially important
for the windshield washer
fluid reservoir.
Keep your fuel level up: The
more gas you keep in your
tank during cold weather, the
less chance that moisture will
form and cause gas line
freeze. So try to keep at least a
quarter tank of gas in your car.
Regularly review tire
pressure: For every 10-degree
drop in temperature, tires lose
close to one pound of
pressure. So regularly check
your tires for proper inflation
and uneven wear.
Watch out for worn wipers:
If your windshield wipers
aren't making full contact
with the windshield or if
they're dried out, make sure
you replace them.
Prepare for an emergency:
Even with a fully winterized
car, you can still run into
trouble on the road. So equip
your car with a first-aid kit,
cell phone, water, spare
batteries and a working
flashlight, tire chains, flares,
blankets, gloves and boots.
Modify your driving habits
to reflect winter conditions.
Chilly weather means you
should alter the way you drive
and be more patient with both
the weather and fellow
motorists. You can do this by
considering the following:
*Increase the distance
between your car and those
around you.
* Reduce your speed
whenever there is rain, snow
ice or fog.
Don't drive in white-outs.
Allow extra room when
passing vehicles.
Try to avoid sudden starts
and stops.
To reduce winter-driving
stress, occasional pull off the
road and take breaks to help
stay alert.
Don't wait for trouble-
anticipate it. Slicker roads and
darker days found in cold-
weather states can make
curves, intersections and
bridges even more dangerous.
When approaching these
hazards:
* Slow down. Ice tends to
form here first.
* Keep an eye out for sliding
or skidding cars as you
approach intersections.
* Reduce speed when
coming up to a curve.
* Be mindful that roads
appearing wet might actually
be coated in black ice.
* Reduce speed and be ready
for vehicles or other objects to
suddenly appear in view when
there's poor visibility.
While your trip home for the
holidays may be a short one,

Give holiday presents that promote fire safety


Show the people you care about that
you are mindful of their personal safety
by giving creative, practical presents that
will protect them from fire this holiday
season and throughout the year.

Here are some suggestions from the
National Fire Protection Association
(NFPA):
Smoke alarms. If a fire occurs,
having a smoke alarm cuts the chance of
dying nearly in half. Consider smoke
alarms for everyone on your list. Smoke
alarms for people who are deaf or hard of
hearing include strobe lights, high deci-
bels and/or vibration. All smoke alarms
should be replaced after 10 years.
Flashlights for emergency light-
ing instead of candles, to avoid the risk of
fire from an open flame.
Sturdy candleholders to prevent
tip-over when candles are lit.
A sturdy fireplace screen, to
keep embers out of the room.
Gift certificates for clean-up
services to remove clutter that could give


fires a place to start or trip you up if you
need to escape quickly if fire occurs.
Chimney sweeps can reduce oily cre-
osote build-up in chimneys that can be
easily ignited, and many chimney sweeps
provide more comprehensive fire inspec-
tion, maintenance, and clean-up services.
Warm nightwear or bedding to
reduce the need for space heaters, partic-
ularly at night. Space heaters (fixed and
portable) are the equipment involved in
three-fourths of home heating fire deaths,
and NFPA recommends they be turned
off at night when people go to sleep.
Nightwear or bathrobes with
tight-fitting sleeves that will stay well
away from cooking flames and hot sur-
faces like stove burners.
Large, deep, sturdy ashtrays. If
family members or friends smoke, using
appropriate ashtrays can prevent smoking
materials from igniting upholstered furni-
ture, bedding or other nearby com-
bustibles.
Portable fire extinguishers, with
clear instructions on how to use them, as


well as strong encouragement to the gift
recipient to learn the rules of safe extin-
guisher usage so they will be ready if fire
occurs.
Oven mitts for handling cooking
equipment, tableware or cookware and
especially to permit safe placement of a
lid on a stove pan to smother a small fire.
Large house numbers so fire-
fighters can locate a home at night quick-
ly during an emergency.
Carbon monoxide alarms. While
this item won't help keep your loved ones
safe from fire, it's something you should
consider for home safety. Often called the
silent killer, carbon monoxide is a color-
less, odorless gas formed when fuels-
such as natural gas, oil and wood-burn
incompletely.
Stocking stuffers. Download
loads of fire safety information-including
home escape grids-from NFPA's Web
site, at http://www.nfpa.org, or for chil-
dren, try NFPA's http://www.sparky.org.
And don't forget batteries for smoke
alarms and flashlights!

Facts & figures to consider for season-
al safety:
Generally, December, January
and February are the deadliest months for
fires.
In recent years, the top three
days for home fires were Christmas Day,
New Year's Day and Christmas Eve.
Cooking and heating are the
leading causes of home fires in the
months of December through February
Home candle fires occur at near-
ly twice the rate in December as through-
out the rest of the year, at least in part
because of holiday decorations and ritu-
als.
NFPA has been a worldwide leader in
providing fire, electrical, building, and
life safety to the public since 1896. The
mission of the international nonprofit
organization is to reduce the worldwide
burden of fire and other hazards on the
quality of life by providing and advocat-
ing consensus codes and' standards,
research, training, and education. Visit

Bingo coming back to Havana parlor


by LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor

Bingo is coming back to
Havana.
At a regular Town Council
meeting Tuesday morning, com-
missioners approved Lillian
Johnson's request to open a
bingo parlor to raise money for
non-profit entities.
Johnson, founder of a non-
profit organization that serves
disadvantaged youth, adults and
their families, said proceeds
from the bingo games will go to
the Havana Community
Technology and Learning
Center, Inc., the Gadsden
County Humane Society and
Lamb's Temple Church.
"The Havana Learning
Center will take full responsibil-
ity for its operation and accord-
ing to state statutes, there will be
no paid employees," Johnson
said. "All funds will be used for


charity only. Any funds used for
overhead will be accounted for
in receipts and journals which
will be accessible to the Town of
Havana and the Havana Police
Department on a daily, weekly
or monthly basis."
Havana police closed down
the Good Time Bingo operation
several years ago after it was
found to be hiding some of its
profits.
Acting Police Chief Lt. John
Ulm said as long as the new
bingo operation follows state
statutes regulating charitable
organizations, it shouldn't be a
problem.
"It has to be strictly bingo -
no quarter games," he said. "...
the statute says you can't pay
anyone, just your business
expenses."
Commissioners voted unani-
mously to approve Johnson's
request and to let her use equip-
ment seized in the raid of the


former bingo parlor as long as
she operated the site.
The equipment would be
returned to the town if the bingo
hall ceased operation, under
Tuesday's vote.
The bingo hall will be in the
Cannery, where the previous
bingo operation was located,
and will be open Tuesday
through Saturday, with Havana
Learning Center running it two
nights, Lamb's Temple Church
using it two nights and the
Humane Society using it one
night per week. Johnson said she
is in the process of securing a
state license for the facility and
hopes to open it around the first
of the year.
In other business Tuesday,
commissioners approved award-
ing a bid for trash collection to
Waste Pro. Commissioners also
authorized Mayor T.J. Davis to
sign a seven-year contract with
the company when all the details


are hammered out.
The town's former garbage
collection contractor, Waste
Management, didn't bid on the
contract.
Pick up days will remain the
same, Town Manager Howard
McKinnon said, and residents
will see a slight decrease in rates
from $17.78 to $17.30 per
month.
McKinnon also said 57
applied for the position of police
chief by the deadline for appli-
cation. He is reviewing applica-
tions and setting up interviews
with the intention of hiring a
new police chief by early next
year.
In other action, commission-
ers:

ments aimed at taking into
account grants the town has
received a rural fire depart-
ment grant, a police radar grant
and several community develop-


HMS eyes vocational program


by LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor

Got a bent for bricks?
Harboring a penchant for
plumbing?
In just a few weeks, area res-
idents will be able to train in
those trades and more at Havana
Middle School.
Havana Community
Technology and Learning
Center Founder Lillian Johnson
is spearheading efforts to get a
vocational education program
up and running at HMS by the
first of the year.
"We will be able to offer
electrical, plumbing, masonry
and many more classes to youth
18 and over in order to help pre-
pare them for today's job mar-
ket," Johnson said. "We are hop-
ing these skills will get a lot of


our youth and adults off the
street corner and into a work
skill that will give them a posi-
tive outlook in becoming self-
sufficient caregivers for their
families."
Initially, Tallahassee
Community College will send
instructors to teach a variety of
courses designed to help area
residents secure jobs. The class-
es will meet during the hours of
6-10 p.m.
"We're going to be doing
some training in the evenings
that focuses on demand jobs in
construction and other industries
that are more office-oriented,"
said Rick Frazier, director of
special projects for TCC. "The
idea is that we're trying to do
training in the local area, which
includes Leon County, so folks
can get jobs. There will be a lot


of diversity in the kinds of
courses folks can get."
Classes planned include cos-
metology, office assistant train-
ing and employability skills.
TCC is using several work-
force development grants to
fund the pilot program; Johnson
said local businesses' support
will be essential as the program
grows.
"If we can get enough spon-
sors, we want to add things like
auto mechanics, cosmetology
and barbering," she said.
"We've been trying to get this
started for over a year, and we
need support."
Gadsden County
Superintendent of Schools
Reginald James said he sees the
program as a complement to the
Gadsden Technical Institute.
"Schools are for the commu-


nity. When they asked for space,
we didn't have a problem letting
them use it," he said. "They
have shown in the past they will
make a meaningful contribution
to the community, and we didn't
see a major duplication of serv-
ices."


ment block grants, to name a
few and adjusting for expenses
that were higher than anticipat-
ed, such as police department
overtime and higher fuel costs.


Voted to change next
month's regular meeting to Dec.
19 to accommodate the holidays.

Florida's 21-14 win over FSU
Saturday didn't impress the BCS folks
very much as the Gators are still
ranked fourth in the latest standings.
Foi them to climb to second UCLA
would hate to defeat USC this
Saturday and the Gator s would proba-
bl. hat e to put a pretty\ good v.hipping
on Arkansa., in the SEC Championship
game.
Netthei thing is likely to happen.
USC is a \%:, much better team than
UCLA thouLh the game is a n ialr
contest. Florida hasn't really] beaten
an\ quality) team bad this 'ear, but like
in an\ other gaine a \, in is a v.in, and
an SEC Championship would be a
great accomplishment, considering the


Gators schedule.
A USC win will put the Trojans
in the BCS Championship against Ohio
State. I have no trouble with that.
Should USC lose the powers that be
. ill prohabl\ re-match Ohio State and
Michigan. Florida would be robbed if
they beat Arkansas_ and that happens.
A %in o\er Arkansas ,. would gro.e
the Gators vwins o\er 10 bowl teams.
Neither Michigan or Ohio State can
make that boast and neither can come
close to clainung to ha;e pla. ed as
tough a schedule as Florida ha,.
Though. I think both teams ma, be bet-
ter than Florida I guarantee neither
cloud pla\ the Gatois schedule v without
a loss.


Not only that, Michigan had their
chance at the Buckeyes and lost. It's
time for someone else to have a shot at
Ohio State. After the smoke has
cleared this week-end. we'll see what
plays out.
By the way, I won over son Joey
in my last college football pick em'
column of the year.
Joey, my rival, hit 5 of 10 selec-
tions while I got 6 of the 10 right. I fin-
i.hed the -eaon at9-4 which ain't bad.
C' elall I got a little closer to Joey in

fai.oi. If I can in the next 2 \ears I'll

Quincy's Christmas parade to go on as planned


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

The city's Christmas parade, set for 6
p.m on December 12, will go on as
planned despite questions about darkness
and safety.
Stacy Brown, administrative assistant
to the City Manager, said all safety issues
had been discussed with the Quincy
Police Department and that everyone
was comfortable with the parade route


and safety.
"One of the criteria is that all of the
floats will have lights, Christmas lights.
We've patterned it after the Tallahassee
(night) parade," she said.
Police Chief Gerald McSwain said he
had driven the route and doesn't think
safety will be a problem. "We will have
barricades all along the way," he said.
McSwain also reassured commissioners
that the street lights give off illumination,
except for one area on Washington


Street, to make it safe. Commissioner
Andy Gay said the route is also the area
in which he regularly runs evenings and
said it was well lit.
As far as walking units, Brown said
each child will be given a glow necklace
or glow bracelet. "There is no reason for
them to get off the route, but if they do,
they will be easily seen," she said.
So far there are 27 entries in the
parade and Brown said she expects more
to come in within the next two weeks.


The parade, she said, should last about 45
minutes culminating on the courthouse
square for other activities that include
photos with Santa, Christmas music, and
light foods sold by vendors.
Plus, Brown has a list of strict rules
governing parade and festival partici-
pants.
The parade will begin at city hall,
north to King Street, east on King Street
to Adams Street and will disband at
Adams and Washington streets.

Swine Time Parade was just
great and you know for the first
time I ever noticed that the ole fire
trucks sound a whole heap better
than the new ones.
Looked to me like a record
breaking crowd at the affair, lots of
booths that I had never heard of before. There was an Indian Flute
Blower who was playing some of the finist sounds I ever heard of,
they wuz a man setting there by the old log house a whitlin walking
cains, then the old Farmall Tractor was pullin the cane grinder. It
was a good site to see and hear.
The Chittlin eating went well as there was the ladies side and the
mens side. They "gobbled" guts by the hands full. We hope to be
there next year to get my 40 inches of bowels.
There was a report that one man took a Buck and a Doe Friday
and a Doe on Saterday, meat for him this year. Another hunter
proved to have taken 2 Saterday morning, the deer hunt was slow
Thanksgiving
Day morning
but it improved I
Saturday after-
noon. The
Duck hunting
was very good .
with lots of
boats out on the -
Lake.
There was a
great deal of
Speck boats hit
the water with i
great success.
Some were sat-
isfied with 16
to 25 begins and
let the small te ,
ones loose to
grow bigger.
That's a good I a
idea don't keep
one less than 10
inches long. Reo.
By noon Saterday and eight pounder was reported and several
small ones. Also Sunday, Richard Predmore on a Spinner Bait had
an 8 and 3 at 4 lbs. This is to remind folks that Bass don't read the
books and don't know they are supposed to be deep on the ledges
and hitting big worms.
Iffen I had a mind to ketch me a Hybrid or a Striper, I would
mosey up to the Reynolds Sand Bar, tie up to the Cypress Tree twixt
the swift water and the eddy water and flang out a Blue Back Spot
into the fast water and then into the eddy water. Loosen your drag,
it's important.
I got a report that in the first seven days of deer hunting in
Missouri, 174,000 legal deer was tagged, that's.a heap of meat.

Marshall

Continued from Page 3
until 1965.
"David's father had played profes-
sional football in Washington. When
we heard the news, it was just beyond
belief. There was a crowd of FSU play-
ers over at his father's house. It was
such a stark tragedy one of those
things that was hard for all of us to
accept. I just hated it."
The story of the 1970 Marshall
University football team's demise, and
that of those who came after them and
struggled to rebuild not just the team
but the town, is told in the movie, "We
Are Marshall" to be released nation-


wide Dec. 22.
Deason remembers DeBord as a
determined and hard-working player.
"He was a real energetic boy,"
Deason said. "He worked hard, he was
really dedicated he sure did have
determination and drive. He had an out-
going personality and was just a good
'ole American boy. He really loved ath-
letics and wanted to excel."
A 1970 Marshall University
Football Press Guide described senior
David DeBord as a player who "came
on strong as the season progressed. He
turned in a number of fine games for
the Herd in his junior season and he
goes into the 1970 campaign as an
experienced, solid lineman. He is not
particularly big as offensive tackles go
(DeBord was 6 feet, 1 inch tall and


weighed 218 pounds) but he possesses
good strength and agility."
Southern Airlines flight 932 left
Kinston, NC, at 6:38 p.m. Nov. 14,
1970, carrying Marshall's football
team, coaching staff and fans to
Huntington, WV following a game the
team lost to East Carolina. After an
uneventful flight, the crew contacted
the Huntington Airport tower at 7:23
p.m. and was cleared for approach on
runway 11. There was mist and light
rain as the plane descended. In the
darkness, the plane hit trees on an
Appalachian hillside roughly a mile
from the runway, crashed and explod-
ed. There were no survivors.
Warner Bros. is planning a special
screening of the movie for surviving
family members Dec. 12.


"We are thankful to Warner Bros. for
thinking of the families of the victims
and working to provide them with the
opportunity to see the film together,
away from the spotlight," said Dr. H.
Keith Spears, vice president for com-
munications at Marshall University.
"Everyone is sensitive to the emotions
of the family members as the movie
release date approaches and the emo-
tions they will experience when they
see it for the first time."
Marshall held its 36th annual memo-
rial service Nov. 14 for those killed in
the plane crash.
Cheryl Smith, now a teacher at
Robert F. Munroe Day School, went to
school with DeBord from first grade
through 12th. The two graduated the
same year.


"When we were in the 12th grade,
our favorite English teacher, Sarah
Lamar ..... taught A.E. Houseman's
poem, "To an Athlete Dying Young."
That always comes to mind (and) heart
when I walk the Hillcrest cemetery near
my house and see David's grave," she
wrote in a letter to the Gadsden County
Times. "He sadly did not ever enjoy
putting to good use the education his
scholarship was providing. Yet, I am
sure that Mr. Frank was one proud
dad."
Dease had a similar remark.
"He was a credit to his family and a
credit to his team," he said.
DeBord's parents passed away some
years ago. Several of his relatives still
live in Quincy; they could not be
reached for comment.


Contemplations

Continued from Page 4
really had a good day. It was
one of those sister days when
you both seem to be on the
same page and everything just
goes right. I've always loved
my sister, but Saturday was
one of our "special" days. I
helped her find gifts and she
reciprocated. I even finished
selecting the remainder of my
Christmas gift from her to me.
Swine Time reminded me of
the way things used to be at
the Seafood Festival in
Apalachicola or the way Mule
Day used to be in Calvary,
GA. Both of them have grown
too big for my taste. I know
it's good for businesses when
thousands of people flock to
town, because we're looking
to draw 10,000 to the 2007
Quincyfest Blues and
Barbecue.
I hope they keep Swine Time
like it is for a few more years.
The word is going to get out
and when it does, it will be a
chore just to get there. But if
you're not doing anything
next year get your sister, or
your mother, or a girlfriend
and go to Swine Time, you
Won't be sorry.

days.
'. When I saw the Florida
Highway Patrol press release
en it in our email mailbox at
work Monday, I opened it to
see what details it would give.
The driver survived.
*He was a 30-year-old
Gainesville man, probably on
his way to Saturday's big
game, traveling alone and
possibly impaired the press
release says the wreck was
alcohol-related.
; But someone, who is not
hamed in the press release,
stopped, pulled him out of the
burning wreckage and saved
his life.
I wish I knew who that was.
Troopers have 10 days to file
crash reports and the one on
this incident wasn't available
yet at press time. I'd like to
know who stopped, ran
toward a burning truck and
pulled out the incapacitated
driver and to thank them for
such a generous display of
goodwill.
And I'd like to better
remember that each day I
wake up able to breathe, walk,
talk and see, I've hit the
jackpot.

For approximately 65 Gadsden County kids, Santa is going to come about a week early. The Gadsden
County Chapter of the National Hook-Up of Black Women and the Gadsden County Sheriff's Office
have partnered this year to identify children who, without the benefit of caring people, might not other-
wise have a bicycle. The bicycles, for children of all ages, were donated by the local Wal-Mart. Inmates
at the county jail will make minor repairs needed to some of the bikes, according to Lt. Jim Corder of
the Gadsden County Sheriff's Office. Sheriff Morris Young said children receiving the bicycles will be
identified by NHBW through local schools and the community. Shown with some of the bicycles are

You think I'm the only one who
is going to miss this group.
And listen to me, in between the
pranks, the eating,.group therapy,
the roaring laughter and the mass
mayhem these guys played
football. Boy howdy, did they
ever!
If Coach Palmer could draw it
up in the dirt, they could make it
work on Friday night.. When
Coach Gannon came out and said
this is the way we're going to
stop'em....they put their
hunkering-down caps on!
When the other coaches barked
and yelled and screamed and
ranted they trudged on with the
heart of a champion.....
I have stood by and watched
this senior class unfurl and
stretch and reach for four years
now. You have honored me, guys,
by letting me hang around. I
thank you from the bottom of my
heart. These bright young seniors
will move on to bigger and better
things.
I will remember the pizza, a pat
on the shoulder, a smile after a
big hit, 30 wedge, some bonding
time in the chutes, a rowdy meal
at Peppers, a bad day on the sled,
a quiet talk walking off the
practice field and a heartfelt
"thanks coach" long after the
cheering stops.....


You see now why I've got to get
out. It gets harder each year to let
them go.
A lot of folks will proudly look
back on the wins, the rural state
trophies, the state championship
and all the football trappings....
I am fortunate to have so much
more....so much more....

QMT celebrates the 60th anniversary


of 'It's a Wonderful Life' this weekend


Quincy Music Theatre will launch a
musical celebration of the-60th anniversary
of the Frank Capra classic holiday film, It's
a Wonderful Life, with performances of the
Sheldon Harnick and Joe Raposo musical
adaptation, aptly named A Wonderful Life.
With performances running December 1
- 10, the beloved characters of George
Bailey and Clarence the Angel will spring to
life on stage at the historic Leaf Theatre in
downtown Quincy, providing the perfect
backdrop for a story that focuses on an
unlikely hometown hero torn between his
own ambitions and the needs of his family
and friends.
Although popular today, Frank Capra's
film was actually a box office disappoint-
ment when it opened in 1946. When the


copyright for the film lapsed and the movie
fell into public domain, television stations
began repeated showings because of its free
price. America soon fell in love with the hol-
iday classic and even Frank Capra said that
it was his favorite work.
Quincy Music Theatre's production of A
Wonderful Life involves a cast of 29 in
order to recreate the hometown environment
of Bedford Falls, NY.
The music is lush and full of the beauty
that is inherent to the storyline itself.
Raposo's score, while on the surface seems
simple, mirrors the complexity of human
nature. The music is, in a word, "wonder-
ful."
Raposo was best known for his work on
Sesame Street, You're a Good Man, Charlie


Brown, and for writing the song made
famous by Kermit the Frog, "It Ain't Easy
Being Green." The book and lyrics were
written by Sheldon Harnick of Fiddler on
the Roof fame.
Tickets are available for QMT's produc-
tion of A Wonderful Life online at
http://www.qmtonline.com or by phoning
850-875-9444. Show dates are Dec 1 3 and
8 10. Show times are Friday and Saturday
at 8 pm with matinees on Sunday at 3 pm.
Ticket prices are adults $12, seniors $11,
and students $9. Discounts are available
for groups of 10 or more. For directions,
visit the website or call.
K. Scott Goodson is the managing direc-
tor for Quincy Music Theatre.


Saturday, Dec. 16 from 12pm to
2pm at Midway City Hall. You

Black Friday.



Quincy stores greet early customers


by LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor

It was the best of times for bargain shop-
pers and a slightly trying time for store
clerks, but overall, Black Friday went well
at Gadsden County stores.
The day-after-Thanksgiving shopping
frenzy started at 5 a.m. By that time, around
300 folks were lined up outside WalMart,
waiting to get in, store manager Richard
Willsey said.
"We did very well," Willsey said
Monday. "Typically, the day after
Thanksgiving and the onset of the holidays
brings out the worst in some customers, but
'these customers were extraordinarily cordial
and pleasant to deal with."


The store quickly sold out of advertised
specials, which people sought more earnest-
ly than a particular toy or other gift item.
"We sold out of a few of the advertised
items early we had a 20-inch TV for $69, a
DVD player for $49 it was simply that the
price was fantastic," Willsey said.
The special sale, which ran from 5-11
a.m., ran smoothly and was comparable to
last year's profit-wise, Willsey said.
"We had all hands on deck. I would like
to say thank you to those customers they
made it a pleasant experience."
Down the street, Fred's also did a boom-
ing business, with a crowd lined up at 5 a.m.
when the store's doors opened.
"We did great," said assistant manager
Phenita Lockwood. "There were people


waiting in line to get in, but the best thing
about that is there was nobody pushing to
get in. They were very considerate."
Lockwood estimates 300-500 took
advantage of the early-bird specials, and that
sales ran about the same as last year.
Sales were price-driven at Fred's as well,
and hot items included a kids' electronic
keyboard, battery-operated trucks and bat-
tery-operated laptop "computers" that kids
can use to learn numbers, letters and more.
Both stores did a steady business
Monday, despite the super-sale event being
over.
And both managers said they're ready for
Dec. 26 a day folks who decide to return or
exchange gifts often line up at the customer
service counter.

don't want to make any promises we can't fulfill,"
said Mayor Sherrie Taylor.
Bill Bogan, city manager, recommended that the
city revisit the request in March or April 2007 when
the city's financial picture will be clearer. Parker said
she had requested funds from the county, and the
health council but "it was suggested that I come to the
city because of the large number of infants who died
in Quincy," she said.
Several people in the audience, however, wanted
commissioners to give the money right then and there.
"I can't believe what I have just heard. You just gave
away $3,000 for Halloween candy and other junk. I
see where your values are," said Clarence Tennell.
"We have not said no, we have tabled it to look at
later," said commissioner Derrick Elias.
Patricia Tennell, who said she volunteers at least 20
hours per week with the coalition and Gadsden Senior
Citizens, told commissioners that the money is really
needed. Coalition Board Member Arrie Battles called
it "sad" that commissioners wanted to table the
decision.
"Do you tell infants not to die until March? People
say we need to take care of our own and we're taking
care of our own, but we need help," Battles said.
Bogan said he felt the request was deserved and that
was the reason he asked Parker to make her request
directly to the commission. "If you all authorize it, we
will find $5,000 without going into the contingency
budget," Bogan said.
And while commissioner Keith Dowdell voted to
give the money, he said he had concerns. He said the
city has many needs and that the commission is in the
middle of to trying to straighten out the finances.
"To say one problem is greater than another problem
is not right. Where were you all when we were
discussing getting utility bills lowered for senior
citizens? We have to take care of finances for all of
our citizens. Don't try to back us in a corner," he said.
Commissioners voted to have Bogan bring back a
solution by the next commission meeting on Dec. 12.

create a $204 million difference
this year between the amount of
statewide funding appropriated
and the amount to be allocated.
Winn says slower growth in
student enrollment will impact
Florida's teacher shortage as well
as school districts' ability to meet
the increasingly stringent
requirements of the class size
amendment. At the beginning of
this school year, Florida had


1,946 teacher vacancies on the
first day of school compared to
2,101 last year. Now that class
size averages must be calculated
at the school-level average, many
schools need additional teachers
to remain in compliance or face
shifting their operating funds to
capital budgets.
Education officials speculate

recent hurricanes and increasing

rowed will be kept in a secure place where

committee members said. The building will

Also, five Havana centenarians will be
honored: Sarah Casteel, who turned 108 on
Nov. 24; Lillian S. Symmes, 101; Norton
Lynn, also 101; Ida P. Herring, 100 and the
late Gus Jackson, who died Sept. 7 at the age
of 101.
Also throughout the day, area bands will
play bluegrass, swing and other music genres;
storytellers will relay what life was like in
Havana in 1906 and a variety of dancers will
perform.
Several times each day of the celebration,
cinematographer Elam Stolzfus will present
special showings of his nature documentary,
"Apalachicola River: An American Treasure."
Commemorative centennial coins are
available now for $10 at the Cecil G. Trippe
Municipal Building, as are centennial t-shirts,
on sale for $10.
Cunningham says it's no mystery why
people settled in the Havana in the late 1800s
and early 1900s.
"The people who came to Havana settled
because it had a lot of promise," she said.
"And it did. And it does."


insurance costs have contributed
to lower student enrollment
statewide.
"These challenges hit education
just as they have in every other
sector of Florida," Winn said.
"By increasing funding per
student, the state could assist
districts in meeting growing
financial challenges associated
with the rise in insurance and
utilities costs."

Havana hog



killing' keeps



tradition alive


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

It's a tradition at the home of
Douglas and Nettie Black in
Scotland Community near
Havana. Each year for the past
25 years, the day after
Thanksgiving is hog killing
time. Before that, Black's par-
ents, James and Bessie, killed
and smoked hogs for the family
to eat throughout the year.
When the sun came up
Friday morning about 25 peo-
ple, mostly men, were on hand
to slaughter 10 hogs each
weighing about 500 pounds.'
"We buy the hogs from a
slaughter house and keep them
about two weeks. We used to
raise our own hogs but that got
to be too time consuming," said
Nettie Black.
Douglas Black said most of
the 25 people trimming, cut-
ting, grinding and packing cas-
ings are his former students. He
and his wife are both retired
educators with the Gadsden
County School District.
"They started coming to help
out when they were in high
school and they haven't stopped
coming," he said. Earl Saulters
has been coming so many years
he has lost track, "I think I've
been coming about 20 years
now," he said.


For the past three years he
has brought his young son,
Ervington, along. "He was a lit-
tle green when he first started
now he's gotten the hang of it,"
Saulters said. Now, at 14,
young Saulters can cut up
chunks of fresh pork with the
best of them. At a time when
most kids want to plunk down
in front of a television set to
play video games, Ervington
said being outdoors and going
the process from beginning to
end "is fun."
This was Walter Taylor's
first year at the Black's hog
killing. "I'm not new at this,
I've done it a lot. My parents
raised hogs. There was a time
when we had almost 200 hogs,"
he said, expertly carving lean
meat off the bone and cutting it
just so to fit the mouth of the
grinder.
Taylor, who works at Davita
Health Care, said coming to the
hog killing brings back memo-
ries. "It was and still is a lot of
hard work, but it's something
about it that makes me think if
the times growing up and
killing hogs at home," he said.
Hog killing time has always
been family time. A liberal
sprinking of kin-folks were
helping, too. Douglas' brother,
Edwin Black, was wielding his
own "special" knife when

showing one of the helpers how
to take a layer of fat from under
the skin of the hog. "Leave just
a little fat on so that the crack-
lins will fry," he advised.
Nearby was Douglas'
nephew, Eddie Knight. He was
cleaning the hog's head. "This
is going to hog head cheese
tomorrow," he said. First, the
hair from the head is removed
with a blow torch. Then come
the arduous task of removing
all of the burnt particles and
cleaning the face. Lifeless eyes
peer out at those standing
around. Using a hack saw,
Knight splits the skull and pre-
pares to remove the meat. The
meat is then mixed with spices,


gelatin, and a few other secret
ingredients.
The Blacks won't divulge
any of their secret herbs and
spices, not for the hogshead
cheese and not for the sausage.
"This is an old family recipe. It
was handed down from my
Mama and Daddy. I can't tell
you what's in it except there is
sage and there is red pepper in
it," he said.
Whatever the concoction,
people from all over flock to
Scotland to get a taste of the
Blacks' sausage. Another
nephew, Fred Galloway, flew in
from California to have
Thanksgiving dinner with the
family and stayed over for hog


killing. Now a city boy, Fred
looked at his hands frequently.
He took a short break and
recalled the ritual growing up in
nearby Midway. "This is part of
our history. I've helped at a lot
of hog killings in my time," he
said.
"Each person knows what
they're supposed to do and they
do a good job, too," Black said.
Arduster House grinds meat,
then he passes it over to Black
and Doug Smart who add the
seasonings. The seasoned mix
then goes to Glen Dilworth or
Terry Sweet who stuff it into
store bought casings. When the
casing are filled, Eddie Riles
loads them onto a five-foot


wooden pole and takes them
inside the smoke house.
Black said the smoking
process can take from three to
five days.
Every year, throughout the
day, people come and go. Some
come to help while others come
to look at how sausage is made.
"A lady told me I ought to
make a big deal out of this
because so many people don't
know how it's done anymore.
The kids need to see this, the
kids need to know. I'll think
about it," Black said. Once an
educator, always an educator. In
a year or two, the Blacks may
be giving tours of hog killing.

We Buy Cars, Trucks & SUVs!


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.

The complete text on the
marker is as follows: THE
DEZELL HOUSE. The Dezell
House was built in 1912 by
James A. and Margaret Leila
"Maggie" Shepard Dezell. This
house, with its Prairie Style
architecture and Arts and Crafts
features, was their family home
for 46 years. James A. Dezell
(1867-1937) was born in
Chicago, moving from south-
western Missouri to Gadsden
County in 1886. James and
"Maggie", a Gadsden County
native, married on September
13, 1893. Between 1894 and
1903, they had three sons and
two daughters. James and his
father, Samuel A. Dezell, were
builders. They constructed the
Samuel Dezell family house in
Mt. Pleasant in 1886. James A.
Dezell was the first mayor of the
Town of Greensboro, serving
several terms following the first
organizational meeting on
August 13,' 1908. The most dis-
tinctive aspects of this house's
construction are its closeness to
the ground rather than sitting on
piers, fine craftsmanship, and
windows set in dormers that
crown the roofline on each main
roof slope and provide light for a
skylight in the entry hall. Dezell
was evidently very confident in
materials and techniques he
chose for the house. The Dezell
House was listed in the National
Register of Historic Places in
2006, showing his confidence
was well placed. A Florida
Heritage Site sponsored by the
West Gadsden Historical
Society, Inc., The Capital City
Bank Group Foundation, and the
Florida Department of State.

Unveiling a gem


The West Gadsden Historical Society
(WGHS) held the unveiling ceremony of the
historic marker for the Dezell House on
Friday afternoon, Nov. 24 at 328 East 8th
Street, Greensboro. The Dezell House was
added to the National Register of Historic
Places on May 10, 2006.
Lynne Layton Poucher, President of
WGHS, welcomed everyone and introduced
the honored guests. Among the attendees
were five descendants of James A. & Maggie
Shepard Dezell, the original owners of the
house: Dr. James K. "Ken" Davis of
Clearwater and his son, Hugh Davis of
Milford, Del., as well as James R. Dezell, Sr.


of Coral Gables and his daughters, Lori
Dezell of Tallahassee and Lisa Dezell Hood of
Marietta, Ga. The Honorable William K.
"Buddy" Pitts, Mayor of Greensboro, intro-
duced City Councilmen Lamar Alday,
Wilford Kennedy, and Herman Rowan and
welcomed everyone to the Town of
Greensboro and the celebration. A brief his-
tory of the Dezell family was given by Linda
Clark Smith, secretary of the Society. The
unveiling was performed by Dr. Davis and
Mr. Dezell, grandsons of Mr. and Mrs. James
A. Dezell. At the close of the ceremony, the
Scottish heritage of the Dezell family was
remembered by a performance by William


I Historical Society
erects historic marker
for Dezell House


Johnson of Tallahassee, who played several
tunes on the bagpipes. Refreshments were
then served and a time of fellowship was
enjoyed by everyone in attendance.

WGHS is very appreciative of The Capital
City Bank Group Foundation for their gen-
erosity in funding the historical marker.
According to the Florida Department of State,
this is the first such marker in the State of
Florida to be funded by a corporate entity.
For further information concerning the
West Gadsden Historical Society, please con-
tact the Society at gadsdenhistory.org or P.O.

I Have you ever wondered when the dinosaurs first appeared on Earth? Well, the oldest dinosaur species
discovered were found in the rocks of Argentina and Brazil, and are believed to be about 230 million years
old. The most primitive of these types, Eoraptor, was a small meat-eating'dinosaur. Because Eoraptor's
skeleton shows some advanced skeletal features, older dinosaurs may one day be discovered. It is believed
that dinosaurs had a general lifespan from ten to a hundred years.
Paleontologists now have evidence that dinosaurs lived on all of the continents. At the beginning of the age
of dinosaurs, or the Triassic Period which started around 230 million years ago, the continents we now know
were arranged together as a single super continent called Pangaea. During the 165 million years of dinosaur
existence this super continent slowly drifted apart. Its pieces then spread across the globe, being arranged in
almost the same way in which they are today. The moving of the continents across the Earth is called plate
tectonics. Volcanoes erupting, earthquakes, mountain building, and sea-floor spreading are all forms of plate
tectonics, and still today this process is changing 1he way the continents on Earth sit.
Dinosaurs' names are picked from a variety of things. Some are named after a characteristic body part, or
perhaps after the place where they were discovered. Some are even named after the paleontologist that
discovered them. Usually the name consists of two Greek or Latin words, or a combination of both. The first
name is the genus and the second name is the species. For example, the term "bin omen", is a combination
of Greek and Latin words that means Tyrannosaurus Rex, and is translated to mean "King of the tyrant
lizards". Biologist's use this naming system is the same exact way to name modern animals as well.
The largest complete dinosaur we know of is the Brachiosaurus, which means "arm lizard". It reached 23
meters in length and 12 meters in height; that is the length of two large school buses and the height of a
four-story building. Fragmentary leg bones and vertebrae of even larger dinosaur species have been found,
jut these skeletal remains are too incomplete to determine their exact size. Several of these, such as
Argentinasaurus and Amphicoelias, might have been one and a half to tvwo times larger than the Brachiosau-
rus. The smallest dinosaurs were just slightly larger than a chicken; Compsognathus, which means "pretty
jaw", was 3 feet in length and probably weighed about 7 pounds. These three dinosaur types all lived during
the Jurassic Period. Mussaurus, which means "mouse lizard', was claimed as the smallest dinosaur. It was
later discovered that this was a newly hatched dinosaur that usually grew into a much larger species, If birds
were advanced dinosaurs then the smallest dinosaur would be a hummingbird! Paleontologists don't know
for certain v.hy the dinosaurs grew to be so big but perhaps the body size protected them rom most
predators. Their size could have also allowed them to more easily regulate their body temperatures, or allow
them to access additional food sources, such as leaves in the treetops. Much like giraffes do today. No
modern animals, except some whales, are even close in size to the largest dinosaurs. For this reason it is
believed that the Earth was then a very different place. ,- (. OI e S:

Millions of consumers may
find that their open hearts will
lead to empty wallets this holi-
day season.
But shoppers don't need to
go broke in order to spread some
holiday cheer. Many Americans
have a misconception that the
best gifts have to cost a lot of
money, but you can show your
love and affection without driv-
ing yourself further into debt.
Consumers are expected to
spend an average of $791.10
each on holiday merchandise
this year and shoppers who
charge their holiday purchases
will ultimately pay much more.
The interest alone on credit
card purchases can become a
huge burden. Many people get
credit-card-statement-shock
when they examine just how
much money they've accumu-

lated in interest all money they
originally hadn't planned to
spend.

Here are five tips to help
shoppers stay out of debt:

Make a List Compile a list
of all the holiday gifts you plan
to purchase, and stick to the list.
This can prevent you from pur-
chasing extras, both big and
small. Remember, all those
trinkets can add up to big bucks.
Your list should also include
your max spending limit for
every item. If you have to ship
gifts to people on your list, be
sure to consider the size and
weight of gifts as you make
your list.

Keep the Plastic at Home -
If carrying your credit card pres-
ents too much of a temptation to
over-spend, leave it home. If
you do bring your card, charge
only gifts you can afford to pay
off when the statement arrives.
Just remember that you will be
charged interest on any balance
you can't pay off immediately.

Gifts from the Heart A
thoughtful gift doesn't have to
empty your wallet. Loved ones
are often touched more from
gifts of the heart. Create a
scrapbook, recipe collection or
CD of special songs. You can
also volunteer your time helping
those less fortunate, in honor of
someone you love.

It's Better to Give than
Receive When you are holiday
shopping, don't squeeze in
unnecessary purchases for your-
self. These items can add up
quickly. Remember to stick to
your list.

Go Online First Scope out
prices online before you head to
the stores. This way, you'll
know where to go for the best
deals. If you purchase your gifts
online, remember to calculate
additional shipping and han-
dling costs into your holiday
budget.

GreenSouth

Equipment, Inc.

expands into

North Georgia

GreenSouth Equipment, Inc., a
John Deere dealer organization
with roots in South Georgia and
North Florida, has expanded its
operations into North Georgia.
The four new locations are in
Carnesville (formerly RWC
Tractor), Athens (formerly
Georgia Tractors), Dacula
(formerly Southeast Service &
Supply), and Madison (formerly


Greenfield Equipment).
Local management in each
location will continue in place
and employment is expected to
remain constant.
GreenSouth brings a strong
reputation for selling high-
quality, John Deere products at
the lowest possible price.
Combined with a tradition of
exceptional customer service, and
the unique strengths of the new
Georgia stores, GreenSouth is
excited about serving our
customers in north Georgia.
"Our customers will benefit
from this consolidation," said
Earl Jones. "GreenSouth will
provide increased levels of new


and used equipment, increased
purchasing power, and improved
efficiencies.
"These combined benefits will
allow GreenSouth to provide
even more value to our customers
by offering the lowest possible
prices."
With the addition of the North
Georgia locations, GreenSouth
now operates thirteen stores
across Georgia and Florida with
more than 300 employees. Other
locations are in Thomasville, GA,
Cairo, GA, Tallahassee, FL,
Hastings, FL, Newberry, FL,
Chiefland, FL, Ocala, FL, Orange
Park, FL, and Gainesville, FL.

Preventing home
burglaries during
holidays

This time of year many peo-
ple take advantage of school
breaks and the holidays to go on
vacation, visit friends, or just get
out of the house for holiday
shopping. Unfortunately, empty
homes also mean burglars will
have countless good prospects.
It's a very vulnerable time for
homeowners as people are busy,
', distracted and not always focus-
ing on the more mundane things
of life, like making a home
secure. A few precautions will
help prevent homeowners from
falling victim to thieves this hol-
iday season.


Start by making a full exte-
rior examination of your house.
Make sure all locked doors and
windows have a tight fit when
closed. Check to see if there's
any "wiggle room" that could
give a thief enough space to
jimmy it open.
Walk around the entire prop-
erty to ensure there is nothing
that can be used to climb to
upper floors. Look in your win-
dows to make sure blinds are
positioned to screen the interior
view, but not closed completely.
You may want to move any
computers and TVs away from
prying eyes. Never leave an
"emergency key" hidden outside
your house.
Always leave your home in
a secure state, regardless of the
time you expect to be away. A


burglar watching your house is
capable of taking what he wants
in a few carefully planned
moments.
When you are away from
the house, particularly for an
extended period, be sure to
make it looked lived-in. Put
timers on a few lights at varied
times; put a timer on a radio set
to a talk-radio station; install a
dusk/dawn outside light or
motion detector; ask a neighbor
to pick up any circulars that
might pile up on your doorstep;
and stop delivery of newspapers
and mail.
In many instances installing
a home alarm system will give
you protection, a sense of calm
and even a discount on your
homeowner's insurance.
Walk around the interior of


your home and inventory your
major possessions. An easy way
is to place valuables out on
tables and videotape your house,
room by room, of all furniture,
paintings and other possessions.
Make a list and place it, any
photos/video you took, and per-
haps the valuables themselves,
in a safe deposit box.
Tell a trusted neighbor on
your block that you will be
away. Activity or noise that
might otherwise seem normal to
them could be alarming if they
know you are away from home.
The only thing worse than
losing your possessions is not
-being sufficiently covered to
recoup your losses, so check to
see if your homeowner's insur-
ance coverage is up to date.

The 1861-65 War Between the States was not the first
civil war in our nation's history; it was the second.
Nearly a century earlier, the Revolutionary War pitted
neighbor against neighbor, brother against brother,
and father against son.
When hostilities ended with the signing of the Treaty
of Paris in September 1783, a contingent of British sol-
diers remained in New York City until November 25.
Their departure closed a page in American history,
allowing the new nation to turn its eyes to the future.
Also looking to the future were American colonists
who had remained loyal to Great Britain during the
war. Known as Loyalists, their communities branded
them as traitors and expropriated their property.
While no study has ever established the exact number
of American Loyalists, most estimates place them at
L,-j:ul .:.r, rtl-,,r.J .. rl,..: p.-.p, l Ir.:r.
.../', ., ar t,,- [[ ',,_-c ~ ,-I,- r


that Britain would lose the war, many Loyalists
began looking elsewhere for a new home. Some
went to Great Britain, but most went to British North
America, which later became Canada. There, the
British government gave them free land as a way to
compensate them for their losses in the American
colonies.
During 1783, approximately 14,000 Loyalists sailed
out of New York harbor heading northeast past
present day Maine to the Bay of Fundy. They settled
near the mouth of the St. John River. Sarah Frost, a
Loyalist who fled Long Island with her husband and
children, said of their new home: "It is, I think, the
roughest land I ever saw." At the time, the land was
part of the Nova Scotia colony, but in 1784 it
became a separate colony called New Brunswick.

Remembering Black Loyalists, Black
Communities in Nova Scotia
Following the Revolutionary War, between
3,000 and 5,000 blacks were among the loy-
alists who fled north. Developed by the
Nova Scotia Museum, this resource tells the
stories of Tracadie and Birchtown, two com-
munities established by the black loyalists.

Developed under the auspices of the New

tells the story of the Revolutionary War in
New York's Mohawk Valley. In addition to a

Loyalists, and links to additional resources.


Ontario. Most had been residents of northern New
York, and provided the foundation for what would
become the Canadian province of Ontario.
According to Alexander Flick, who was the New
York State historian in the early 1900's:
"Many of them were driven out by persecution, oth-
ers fled through fear, but most of them left at the
close of the war because their cause had been lost,"
They loved British institutions, were true to their
oaths of loyalty, dreaded the scorn and contempt of
their victorious brothers,' hated republicanism,
loved adventure, and wished to help'preserve the
integrity of the British Empire."
While America shunned their Loyalists, they
became the backbone of British North America,
and today their descendants are known around the
world as Canadians. Find out more about the divi-

produced between 1781 and 1784. It
includes a list of Loyalists whose property is
to be confiscated, letters, and public
announcements.


IT HAPPENED

During a February

seven State
Department employ-
ees loyal to the
Communist Party. A
United States
Senator, he then
