Two die in

weekend

accidents
by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
Two separate traffic accidents, both involving
collision with utility poles, claimed lives on
Saturday and early Monday morning.
Ricky Barnard Ceasor, 42, was killed early
Saturday morning in a single-car accident on
County Road 12, east of County Road 157 after
he ran off the road about 4:30 a.m., according to
a news release from the Florida Highway Patrol.
He was not wearing a seatbelt. According to the
report, Ceasor drove onto the north edge of CR
12 and attempted to. steer, to the left to regain
control of his four-door Chevrolet. The vehicle

Molestation

case ends in

mistrial
by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
The trial of Joseph Green ended a few hours
after it began Tuesday in a mistrial. Another
trial for Green, now 50, has been set for January
24, 2007.
He is accused of two counts of lewd and
lascivious acts by an adoptive parent, and four
counts of molestation on two females to whom
he and his wife were foster parents. The Greens
had been foster parents since 1994 for as many
as eleven children. The family had adopted the
girls in 2003.
Green was arrested in May of this year
following information that came from the
Department of Children and" Family Abuse
Hotline. The acts he allegedly committed dated
back as far as 1994 when the two girls were 6
and 7 years old.
The courtroom was cleared while the girls,
now 16 and 17, testified before the six-member
jury. Investigator Ulysses Jenkins of the
Gadsden County Sheriffs Office was on the
witness stand when the mistrial was declared.
No immediate reason for the mistral was
available.

Who pays the cost of crime?


State may ask Gadsden to pay tab incurred by juvenile offenders


by ALICE DU POINT
Times Editor
Juveniles who find themselves on the
wrong side of the law could be costing
Gadsden Countians a lot more than
anyone thinks if the county isn't
successful in persuading the state to
pick up the $100,000 tab run up by
these delinquents.
The board of county commissioners
was told Tuesday night during the
regular meeting that the Department of
Juvenile Justice failed to budget
enough money to help out small


counties like Gadsden with their
juvenile problems.
According to Davin Suggs, director
of the office of management and
budget, all counties in Florida are
required to pay part of the costs
associated with juveniles who are
incarcerated in the state juvenile
justice system.
But because Gadsden County, has
been designated a fiscally constrained
county, the state was to pay the
county's share. "It is anticipated that
the state will ask Gadsden County to
help cover the $100,000 shortfall for


our county," he said.
"We're going to try to get the state to
pay for its own mistake of not
appropriating enough funds," Suggs
said. "The problem is once we pay it
we can't stop. We're taking the advice
of the Florida Association of Counties
and asking DJJ to pay."
In other matters:
Corey Fleming, the administrator at
the Gadsden Urgent Care Center said
the center is set to open at 2 p.m. on
Monday, December 18 with the ribbon
cutting at 1 p.m. "All 12 of the


employees have been hired and all but
one are from Gadsden County and that
one is looking for property here,"
Fleming said.
He said the Tallahassee Memorial
Healthcare Marketing Department is
putting together a prototype of all of
the services that will be available. The
information will be distributed through
the three county newspapers as well as
placed in offices where there is high
volume traffic.

by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
The body of Bacari Warren, 18, of
Havana was identified Thursday
afternoon by a family member after his
body was pulled from the bottorrfof the
Ochlockonee River by divers. A search
had been on for Warren since early
Sunday morning after Leon County
deputies said they saw him jump from
a bridge on U.S. Highway 90 and run
toward boat ramp.
Divers found the body around 1:30
p.m. about 100 yards south of the boat
ramp in the middle of the river at the
Gadsden-Leon county line. Major
Mike Wood of LCSO said family
members told him that Warren could
not swim. Family members stood vigil
at the river since Warren was reported
missing early Sunday morning.

Troy Gilyard, an 8-year veteran of
the Quincy Police Department, was
selected Tuesday morning as the
District 3 Officer of the Year. The
award, which is given annually, was
presented by the Florida Police Chiefs
Association during breakfast at the
City Country Club in Tallahassee.
"We're all very proud of Officer
Gilyard and I took great pride and
pleasure in making the nomination,"
said Police Chief Gerald McSwain.
Gilyard will represent the Big Bend
area which includes almost 20 law
enforcement agencies. McSwain said
officers from much larger agencies
such as Tallahasee Police Department,
the Florida Department of Law
Enforcement and the Florida Highway
Patrol were also represented.
"I was surprised that he won because


usually this recognition goes to
somebody from big city departments."
McSwain said.
In 2005 Gilyard was assigned to the
Criminal Investigative Division and
was able to solve many residential and
commercial burglaries, computer
fraud, grand theft by scams, city utility
theft, meter tampering, home invasion
robberies, identity theft, sexual
battery, and other criminal cases.
Known throughout the department
for his investigative skills and
tenacity, Gilyard, last year, tracked
down and arrested 69 felony law
violators. He was also able to clear 82
percent of his assigned cases and
recovered $69,779 worth of stolen
merchandise, including cash from
scam cases.
"Officer Gilyard has consistently
demonstrated a high degree of

Tree of Remembrance


The Big Bend Hospice Tree of remembrance is now up at
Premier Bank and the public can honor their loved ones by pur-
chasing an ornament in their memory and hanging it on the
tree. All contributions go to help hospice patients in the Big
Bend area. Local patients benefit greatly from these contribu-
tions through the purchase of medication, home health aids,
counseling, and respite for caregivers. Sherry Van Landingham,
a member of the Gadsden Hospice Advisory Board, was one of
the first to hang an ornament. The tree will remain in the lobby
throughout the holidays.

Need a flu shot? Now's the time to get it, said
Sylvia Forehand Byrd, executive director of the
3adsden County Health Department.
The department has started its flu vaccination
clinicss and wants to remind the public that the best
ime to get the shots is October and November.
Vaccinations should also continue into December
md January since flu season peaks in late
-ebruary in Florida.
"There is no shortage of the vaccine this year.
Ve have plenty, we ordered early and we ordered
'rom the manufacturer," Byrd said.
Shots are recommended annually for children
betweenn 6 and 59 months, people over 50, health
,are workers, and children, adolescents, and
adults with chronic health conditions, Byrd said.
Flu shots are available, appointments are rec-
)mmended, at the following locations for $25:
Quincy Health Department, daily 8 a.m. to 5
).m.; Wednesday evenings from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m.
'by appointment only). To schedule an appoint-
-nent, call 850-875-7200, ext. 301.

Influenza, commonly known as "flu" is a con-
agious respiratory illness caused by the influenza
virus. It is spread from person to person in respi-
-atory droplets when people who are infected

day before getting symptoms and up to five days
after getting sick. Therefore, it is possible to give
someone the flu before you know you are sick.
The flu can be mild or severe and can, on rare
occasions, lead to death. The symptoms of flu are:
(usually high) fever, headache, tiredness, cough,
sore throat, runny or stuff nose, body aches, and
diarrhea and vomiting (mainly among children).
Byrd said the best way to protect yourself
against the flu is to get vaccinated.
"There are many things people can do to pro-
tect themselves. One of the best ways is to wash
your hands, especially before eating. The one
place where we touch a lot of people, and it's not
a place people usually think about, is church," she
said.
Door knobs and shopping carts are good ways
to pick up germs. "Be conscious of picking up
germs. I don't want people to be paranoid, but be
conscious. If you sneeze, throw the tissue away,"
she said.
The Center for Disease Control has the follow-
ing suggestions for preventing flu.
Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
When you are sick, keep your distance from oth-
ers to protect them from getting sick, too.
Stay home when you are sick. If possible, stay
home from work or school, and do not run errands
when you are sick.
Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue
when coughing or sneezing.
Clean your hands by washing them often with
soapy water. If that's not available, use hand a san-
itizer.
Get plenty of sleep, be physically active,
manage your stress, drink plenty of fluids, and eat
nutritious food.


other school, in grades pre-K
through three.
Gadsden County Schools
Superintendent Reginald James
said staff members -have
resolved the matter, which he
says springs from having more
students enrolled than were
anticipated.
"We projected we'd have
6,000 students and we ended up
having about 150 more than
that. (DOE) understands that,".
he said.
"When we got the letter, we
had a meeting and made the cor-
rections. We had to add a posi-
tion. We have to get on things
like that it's important to us."
The Gadsden County School
Board voted recently to cap
enrollment at George W.
Munroe as a result of its rapid


growth. James speculated a new
apartment complex near the
school might have added to the
influx of students at the school.
Florida residents voted to
restrict class sizes by constitu-
tional amendment in 2002. At
the time, Florida was the only
state to limit class sizes by con-
stitution.
The move limited pre-kinder-
garten through third-grade class-
es to 18 students, fourth through
eighth-grade classes to 22 stu-
dents and high school classes to
25 students by the 2010-2011
school year.
If a school district does not
meet state regulations in regard
to class size, it's subject to
penalties including a mandatory
transfer of operating revenue to
capital funds, which are used to

Contemplation.


Do the right thing, insurance

companies...give us a break


I know it's too much to ask, but since
we didn't have any hurricanes in 2006,
can I get a rollback on my
homeowner's insurance policy?
It seems only fair that since insurance
companies didn't have to pay out any
large sums of money this year the least
they can do for those of us who live in
the "hurricanes-never-hit Panhandle"
is give us a break. During the record
hurricane season last year, insurance
companies whined that they were
running out of money and that they
needed to raise everyone's rates to pay
for the folks who choose to live on the
coast.
The end result was that all of us had
to come up with 15 percent more. For
many people, including me, that was
just one expense added on. I felt like a
hostage, the same way I feel about my
City of Quincy utility bill: I have to


pay it no matter what they decide to
charge me and I have no recourse.
It seems to me that insurance
companies ought to operate the way
our local farmers say they do. In a
good year, they stash away money so
that they can continue to live when
they have a bad year. There have
been far more good years for insurance
companies than there have been bad
years.
If they wanted to do the right thing,
now. would be the time to say to
consumers that they appreciate us for
bailing them out and now that they
have a breather, our rates can go down
a few dollars. But, that's too much to
expect. Record profits don't translate
into helping the poors schmucks who
are struggling to keep mind and body
together.


unker down

with

ICes


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.


Our justice came early....and often!


Mother is a little older now and a tad
on the feeble side. She was born the
year most of the "dough boys" were
returning from the war "over there".
I'm also a little older. I'm a parent and
a grandparent. And I've had almost six
decades myself to ponder on life,
liberty and the pursuit of happiness..
It can be confusing at times. As a
baby boomer, after yet another world
war, I spent twelve or thirteen of my
formative years "lost in the fifties". As
Steve McQueen so eloquently put it in
The Magnificent Seven, "I didn't know
my elbow from a hot rock!"
One of my first remembrances was
trying to pull David Mark through the
slats in his baby bed. He was twenty
months younger and cried too much
and got way too much attention. I
reckon I aimed to pull him out of that
fortress and bust him up some! Mom
didn't waste any time "reckoning". She
didn't give me the big long lecture
about the proper respect for your'
younger brother. She didn't cry foul.
She didn't seek professional help. She
didn't call Daddy, two lawyers or the
chief of police. She snatched me up
and tanned my little behind!
For a long while!
When she finally tired out and let me
go I dropped to the floor like a sack of
potatoes. Leon let me get my crying
done and my equilibrium half back in
tack before dryly commenting, "With
Mother, justice comes quick and
swift."
In the fifth game of the 1956 World
Series Sal Maglie pitched a great game
for the Dodgers; he gave up 2 runs on
just 5 hits. It was surely enough to win
most times.....except Don Larsen
picked this day to pitch a perfect game!
"Damn Yankees!" I was nine years
old and so frustrated it was all I could
think of. Mom didn't give me the
language lecture. She didn't point out
that "we" didn't use such words. She
didn't even let me hear the Gillette
Wrap-Up Show. She crammed that bar
of lye soap so far down my throat that
when I cough today little tiny bubbles
come floating up through my
esophagus.
Deep down in her heart I think she
secretly agreed with me but her sense
of justice far outweighed a baseball
game!
She never hired a baby sitter: We
didn't go live with Uncle Clifford or
Aunt Beatrice. When I got a little older
and spent the night with Bobby Brewer
or Ricky Hale she would call a couple
of times to check on me. It was like


nobody could care for us like she could
care for us. Or maybe it was "if we
were going to mess up she was going
to be close by to set us back on the
straight and narrow".
When me and Leon would get to
ranting about old man Nloore ihi:
letting us cut through his pasture she
would pass the green beans and
politely change the subject. If we said
another word about Mr. Moore she
would look over at Daddy and say,
"Lonnie". Believe you me, we got as
quiet as little church mice! We would
sit up and show the whole world what
good little boys we could be!
If you think Mom was big on justice,
you get just a half a hair out of line
with my Father! It wasn't fair the way
they double teamed us as we were
growing up! They never left, they
never turned their backs, they never
changed and they never relented!
And we're not talking about love
here. If you'd a'seen the tears in
Mom's eyes when she was picking the
gravel out of my knee or the fear in my
Dad's face once when we couldn't find
David, you'd understand.....
I have heard the term, "tough love".
Maybe that's it. I don't know. I do
know my folks demanded we do right.
Listen, if I got in trouble in Miss Belle
Alexander's third grade class they took
her side! It was the same in Mr. Berry's
science class in junior high. Can you
believe that!
When I started dating Mom would
wait up for me. Amazing! I don't care
if I came home at nine o'clock or ten or
eleven... .when I turned the knob on
that back door down the hall she'd
come. She'd give me a hug, ask if I had
a good time and fix me a pimento and
cheese sandwich.
I couldn't drink alcohol. I had to go
home. And she'd be waiting up.
Neither me, Leon or David Mark ever
got into any bad trouble. We never got
arrested. Or put in jail. We didn't have
a chance to! Mother and Dad were too
close!
I remember the night I graduated
from high school. "I'm staying out all
night." I thought that was what you
were supposed to do. Besides Pam and
Emily, Buddy, Ricky, Terry and some
of us were going out to the clay pits to
hang out and talk about the freedom
that comes with shedding that old
school forever!
"Have fun, son," Mother was
straightening my tie, "but you need to
be home before midnight."

It's always Christmas in Santa

Claus, GA or Rudolph, WI


Need a nudge to get into the holiday
spirit?
Take a drive to Santa Claus, Ga.,
(population 242) in Toombs County, this
side of Vidalia.
OK, I'm short on creativity this week
but teeming with useless trivia. Such as:
Santa Claus has around 79 households
and 53 families. They live on streets
with names such as Candy Cane Road,
December Drive, Rudolph Way, Dancer
Street, Prancer Street and Sleigh Street.
If that's too far away, try a trip to
Dasher, Ga., in Lowndes County.
According to the U.S. Census Bureau,
the town covers a 4.9 square-mile area
and is home to around 834 people.-
But don't forget the Granddaddy of all
Christmas-oriented cities: North Pole,
Alaska, fabled Santa Claus headquarters
and general snow-and-ice winter
wonderland.
With a population of around 1,778, the
North Pole boasts as its biggest
attraction a gift shop called The Santa
Claus House, which features a giant,
fiberglas statue of Santa outside.
Don't let the fact that the city is
technically 1,700 miles south of the
earth's geographic North Pole diminish
its holiday appeal the U.S. Post Office
there receives hundreds of letters to
Santa and thousands more from people
wanting a North Pole postmark on their
holiday greeting cards.

200 feet long.
Then there's Rudolph, Wis., a village
located within the Town of Rudolph,
Wis., and if you're looking for an
explanation of that, you'll have to go
elsewhere.
The town is home to around 1,200.
Other spots you might be interested in
this time of year include Noel, Mo.,
population 1,515; Snowflake, Ariz.,
population 4,958; Holly Springs, Miss.,
and Mount Holly, N.C.
As. for me, I'm going to stick to
Gadsden County and continue to be
really, really happy that the U.S. Census
Bureau and Wikipedia are only a mouse
click away.

Holiday lights
Dear Friends and Neighbors,
My wife, Sandra, and I would like to take this
opportunity to wish everyone a happy holiday
season and a very Merry Christmas. As in the
years past, I have been busy putting together a
Christmas light display at our home. We would
like to invite everyone to come by and enjoy the
lights with us. This year the display has over
75,000 lights! I recently completed building a 20-
foot-tall Christmas stocking to add to the display.
It has over 3,000 lights in it. With over a dozen
animated figures and numerous inflatable figures,
the display is definitely worth the time to see.
The lights are on timers and are set to come on
at 6:30 every night and go off at 10 p.m. Our
home is located at 500 Forest Drive in Quincy.
We are easy to find, just go north off King Street
either on 9th or Jackson Streets to Forest Drive.
Turn right if you are on 9th or left if you are on
Jackson. You can't miss us!
Happy Holidays,
Dr. Don M. Cross

Green giants
Letter to the Editor:
"To be, or not to be: that is the question."
Relax, this is not to be an article about
Shakespeare and his tragedy "Hamlet." It is
intended, however, to avert a possible tragedy in
the hamlet of Quincy, Florida.
For those of you who read my April 7, 2005
letter to the editor of The Gadsden County Times,
you might remember I addressed the problem of
the "Not-So-Jolly-Green-Giants" that are being
placed on our sidewalks and, yes, unbelievably in
our streets. Has anything changed in almost two
years?
Yes, the problem is worse than before as more
and more garbage cans have made the streets their
permanent home. This is a long stretch from the
original intent, which was to have the cans rolled
back and forth from curbside. These cans must be
a hindrance to mail truck drivers, emergency
vehicles such as police, firetrucks and ERS trucks.
Are school bus drivers having to dodge these
"Green Giants" while picking up children in the
pre-dawn hours? Must we wait for a Quincy
tragedy to occur before something is done?
I've always heard than Americans have a "can
do" attitude. Can the citizens of Quincy, Florida
do something about the garbage cans? We can,
and we will, depending on the attitude taken by
concerned citizens of this All-American City.

It really is 'A

Wonderful

Life'

I was awishin' a few weeks
back that more Gadsden
County folks would take an
interest in displaying their
talent on stage at the Quincy
Music Theater.
I sure got my wish.
"A Wonderful Life" is full of
local talented .
people, lead by
Jack Peacock in
the role of
Bedford Fall's
favorite banker.
Across the table
from him is a
face I've grown to love since
my first day in Quincy. I
would never have believed
Byron Spires could have even
acted this mean.
If you haven't already seen
the musical, you need to. You
can still catch it Friday and
Saturday nights at 8 or Sunday
at 3 p.m.

Light 'em up

The Gadsden County Times
is once again sponsoring a
Christmas lighting contest.
Categories are for business
and individuals.
Prize money is involved, too.
You can win $50 cash. See the
details on Page B 1.

Meet Eddie

Some of you have already
met the newest member of
The Gadsden County Times
staff. I hope the rest of you get
the chance to meet him soon.
Meet Eddie Ledbetter.
Eddie is the new general
manager of The Gadsden
County Times. That means
he'll be helping Wendy and I
run the business, hopefully
taking a little of the load off
our shoulders.
He'll be supervising
essentially all the departments
in the newspaper...news,
advertising, circulation,
graphics and printing.
Eddie comes to us from
Statesboro, GA where he was
the managing editor of the
seven-days-a-week Statesboro
Herald.
Before that he was the
newspaper's news editor. He
had also spent a couple of
years writing news stories for
the Bainbridge Post-
Searchlight, so he's not really
new to this neck of the woods.
He spent some time in Quincy
with friends who lived here
while he worked at the
Bainbridge newspaper.
He also had managed a
printing shop for the company
that owns the Statesboro
newspaper.
Eddie will have more to say
in this space in the weeks to
come.

The high price of scrap cop-

Jamestown



Virginia's first settlement and Gadsden

County celebrate common threads


by LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor

It might seem like Gadsden County and
Jamestown, Va., don't have much in common.
Guess again: both had early leaders named
John Smith.
Both boasted populations in the 1600s that con-
sisted primarily of residents of Native American,
African-American and European descent.
And both relied on tobacco to keep their com-
munities afloat.
Those are a few of the reasons Virginia Gov.
Timothy Kaine designated Gadsden County one
of the very few non-
Virginian communi-
ties to be so named -
as a contributor to the /.
Virginia 2007
Community Program. -
As Virginia readies
for Jamestown's 400th
commemoration
eight years of plan-
ning behind it com-
munities throughout
the state, in Gadsden
County, in Alvaton,
Ga., and in England
are also planning ways
to commemorate the jam
birth of a nation. V!G
In Gadsden
County, local organiz-
ers have sponsored an
essay contest, its theme centering on the patriotic
legacy of Jamestown. They are also planning a
"Barn Day" at the Davis farm in Sawdust, where
visitors will be able to see actors dressed in period
costumes, chores done the way they were in the
1600s and arts and crafts of the time on display.
"The Jamestown celebration is ongoing," said
Jan Summerford, a state Department of
Agriculture and Consumer Services agricultural
marketing specialist based in Quincy. "We are try-
ing to get more information out, to get students
involved in the process. We want people to come
out (to Barn Day, in the summer) and see what life
was like in those times. It's a way to focus on what
is good about our country."
i Communities chosen to ,participate in the
Jamestown 2007 Community Program must meet
certain criteria, including planning projects to
mark the event.
Kay Davis Lay, whose family has farmed in
Sawdust for more than 100 years is planning on'


0
,IL


planting a garden near the barn where Barn Day is
to be. It was Lay who approached the Gadsden
County Commission to get permission to apply for
the Jamestown community designation.
Official Jamestown 2007 communities will be
featured on the Jamestown 2007 web site and in
promotional material.
According to a press release from the
Jamestown 2007 organization in Virginia,
Jamestown legacies are still a fundamental com-
ponent of every culture and community in the
nation.
"Virginia's 400th anniversary is a time to
remind all Americans to reflect on how much our
modern lives
are shaped by
IIT) the deed of the
. .three cultures
F /' brought togeth-
er through life's
'\ circumstances
almost 400
years ago,"
according to the
press release.
"The Europeans
'i in search of
.-. opportunity in a
-.. new land, the
Virginia Indians
st ,'. fighting to
VA 1607-2007 retain their land,
and the Africans
Stripped from
their homelands
ultimately united to become one nation. Their
combined labor, skills, knowledge and cultural
traditions are the very fabric of our modern
American society. Their legacy has become a cat-
alyst and beacon for immigrants worldwide want-
ing to become, simply, Americans."
Local organizers are still looking for actors to
portray Jamestown settlers. They are also looking
for artisans to create pottery and other period art-
work on site during Barn Day. No vendors will be
permitted at the site.
They've also organized an essay contest for
Gadsden County high school students whether
they're enrolled in public or private schools or are
homeschooled in which the first-place winner
takes home $400.
"The theme is patriotic there are so many
directions you can go with this essay,-"
Summerford said.
For more information, contact Summerford at
850-627-6484.

Gretna commission praises Jefferson's work


by LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor

Gretna City Commissioners
agree on at least one thing:
Actions speak louder than
words.
During Tuesday night's regu-
lar commission meeting, com-
missioners praised city manager
Antonio Jefferson's work to
overcome some of the hurdles
the city faces a consent order
from the state Department of
Environmental Protection that
has stalled growth of the tiny
community until water and
sewer problems are fixed, budg-
et constraints and a negative
attitude about the city on the
streets.
When Jefferson asked com-
missioners to approve selling off
city surplus equipment mainly


vehicles like a circa-1979 fire
truck with a blown engine and a,,
backhoe on its last leg a city
resident asked whether the city
owned a working fire truck.
It's perceptions like those -
the city bought a new fire. truck
in 2003 that commissioners
and Jefferson are working to
change.
"We, as a board, brought on
Mr. Jefferson as city manager ...
he came in running," Mayor
Nadine Smith said. "He put
together a dynamic team that
has shown love and concern for
our city."
Commissioners approved
task orders that make it possible
for an engineering firm to con-
duct an extensive water system
evaluation and wastewater plant
evaluations, as well as an oper-
ating permit renewal and a


wastewater master plan.
I,;l Improvements to those two
systems are required by DEP,
and are necessary to accommodate
the 324-bed expansion of the
Gadsden Correctional
Institution. Gadsden County
hotelier Peter Patel has
expressed interest in building a
hQeel near the facility, and a
developer is considering adding
a 4P00-home subdivision to the
city pending water and sewer
approvements and annexation
into the city of the property he
plans to put it on.
"These are very important
items that will help us get out
from under the consent order we
have been under for 13 years,"
city attorney Harold Knowles
said.
During the meeting,
Jefferson ticked off a list of


steps the city has taken during
the past year.
"The work the staff is doing
to move this city along is so
great," he said. "A year ago, we
got a letter from the North
Florida Water Management
District citing violations going
back to 2001 mainly unac-
counted-for water loss. None of
these issues affected public
health. There was the potential
for a $10,000 fine. After talking
with them, we got the fine down
to $100."
Jefferson also mentioned the
hiring of a public works director
and a wastewater/sewer manag-
er as moves in the right direc-
tion.
"Slowly but surely, we're
getting there," he said.
Also Tuesday, commissioner
approved renewing a $1-per-


year lease for The Community
Learning Center, a daycare at
164 Fourth St. They also agreed
to waive the portion of liability
and property insurance the day-
care was originally responsible
for $1,648 with the stipula-
tion that the city will not be
responsible for the $2,500
deductible should a claim be
filed.


In other action, commission-
ers set a workshop date Dec.
21 at 6:30 p.m. to discuss a
taser policy for the police
department. A local business-
man offered to buy two tasers
for the department; commission-
ers will discuss the pros and
cons of taser use at the work-
shop and set guidelines for their
usage.

County $5,000 for a media
campaign to educate women of
childbearing age. Commissioner
Ed Dixon abstained from voting
on the issue because he works for
the organization.


He did comment, however, when
Commissioner Doug Croley said
he could not find the
organization's 501-C(3) non-profit
status nor was it registered with
the IRS.


,Dixon said the organization was
a good one and that Gadsden
County lost more babies that any
other county in Florida. He said
education was needed to make
sure that pregnant women have


healthy outcomes.
Part of the money-will be used to
hire Ron Sachs Communications
of Tallahassee to design a media

used to implement the program.

professional excellence and his
investigative skills have placed
him head and shoulders above
many of his peers. His attitude
and commitment to make the City
of Quincy a safer place to live,
work, and play speak for him,"
McSwain said.
In one case, Gilyard conducted


an investigation involving a
computer fraud scam on Ebay.
The scam originated in Izhersk,
Russia and ended in Quincy. The
suspect posted items on Ebay for
auction and victims across the
United States posted bids and
sent money to a Quincy address.
When the bid was accepted, the


scam artist never sent the
merchandise to the bidder.
Officer Gilyard, working with the
Florida Department of Law
Enforcement, was able to recover
and return approximately $10,000
to the victims.
He was also instrumental in
identifying and shutting down a

writing his name down for them,
Wood said.
However, a check of his driver's
license revealed a warrant for
failure to pay $300 in
outstanding court costs. Warren
then jumped out of the car and
ran west on Highway 90 toward
Gadsden County. "He got about

headed for the boat ramp," Wood
said.
A K-9 unit was called out and

him missing Monday. That's
when deputies found out that
Warren had called his girlfriend

to pick him up on Highway 20.
The call was made from the cell

Chattachoochee


Police fighting
traffic... drugs
and street with
new positions


by LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor

The Chattahoochee Police
Department is cracking down on
both drug traffic and street traf-
fic.
Chief Vann Pullen decided to
add a position dedicated solely
to traffic enforcement after resi-
dents' complaints; his depart-
ment was the first in Gadsden
County to use a K9 unit, he said,
and after several years without
one, he decided to re-establish a
K9 unit to improve drug inter-
diction efforts.
"One of the missions of the
Chattahoochee Police
Department is to enforce .the
controlled substances laws and
bring to the criminal justice sys-
tem those persons involved in
the illicit trafficking of narcotics
within the city," Pullen said.
"In the never-ending effort to
improve our drug interdiction
effort, the Chattachoochee
Police Department has added a
new member to the force: K9
Max. Max is a 4-year-old
German Shepard and will
specifically be used in targeting
narcotics violations. The addi-
tion of Max should enhance our
ability to deter narcotics activity
in the city."
Lt. Barry Moore, a 13-year
veteran of the CPD and a law
enforcement officer for 18
years, will be in charge of put-
ting Max to work.
"This is a job activity that
goes along with the daily opera-
tional function of the depart-
ment," Moore said. "We are
showing a force, trying to mini-
mize drug activity."
Crack is the most prevalent
drug in Chattahoochee, Moore
said. "Max, is able to' detect
whether narcotics are in a car or
a business, for example, and
whether they have been. The


chief is the head honcho of this
operation zero tolerance. He
brought that here."
Moore said he likes his job,
generally, even if he's not
always the most popular person
on the block.
"I love the job itself -overall,
I like helping 'people.
Sometimes it doesn't go with
the territory, but you've got to
do what you've got to do."
Pullen said each of his offi-
cers enforces traffic laws; hav-
ing one dedicated solely to that
endeavor will help the depart-
ment focus its public safety
efforts.
"The addition of the traffic
officer supports the ultimate aim
of traffic law enforcement,
which is to achieve voluntary
compliance from the community
concerning traffic laws, to edu-
cate the community on the need
for being a safe driver and to do


fighting

such enforcement in a courteous
and professional manner,"
Pullen said.
"Traffic law is the responsi-
bility of all our officers.
Essentially, the time traditional-
ly devoted to traffic enforce-
ment is a random preventive
patrol as part of the numerous
duties the officers perform dur-
ing their shift."
Officer Jim Hamilton, who's
been with CPD for a year,
assumed the duties of traffic
officer Nov. 16.
Retired from the U.S. Air
Force, Hamilton worked at the
Sneads Correctonal Facility for
eight years and then as a high-
way safety officer involved in
driving-under-the-influence
investigations, among other
things.
"My forte is traffic," he said.
I feel like if somebody is not out
there looking out for the people


crime

who comply with the law by
removing people who don't
comply with the law, the roads
would remain unsafe."
Most traffic violations in
Chattahoochee are speeding and
driving on a suspended license,
Hamilton said.
Speeding tickets cost a pretty
penny: Depending on how fast
the driver is going, they range
from $80-$305 and speeding
through a school zone can cost
up to $555.
The Chattahoochee Police
Department has 10 full- and
part-time officers and four
reserve officers.

Class of 1967
The 1967 graduating class of
Carter-Parramore High School
wil hold its regular monthly
meeting Saturday, Dec. 9 at 4
p.m. at Antioch MB Church. All
classmates are cordially invited.

GATORS HEADED TO
GAM I E
E erything fell in place


.. .........


BIG Flonda last Satuiday and the Gatois
took advantage of the situation to play
e for themselves into the BCS


Championship game against Ohio
State on January 8.
Florida deserves the shot at'the
Buckeyes despite anything Michigan
might say.
Michigan had their chance and
wound up a second place team.
Florida is the champion of the SEC and
they won it with the nations toughest
schedule.
If you're going bet on the game
take.the early line. Ohio state will be
favored by much I think. But the more
people think about the Gator speed the
less the point spread will get.
Can Florida win in the desert this
time and.not get blown away like they
did against Nebraska the last time they
played fdr it all in the desert? Yes, they
can! This Gator team is more physical
and can win it on defense if they con-
tain Tioy Smith. That may not be the
easiest task but I think the\ ha\e the


speed to do it.
Offensi ely


it may be another


matter though as Ohio State can surely
stop Florida, especially if the Gators
make as many offensive mistakes as
they do normally. It's a long way until
January 8 and much will be written and
talked about until then. Still I like the
Gators in the early line.
SEMINOLES WIN BIG GAME
Florida came into the Civic
Center Sunday with the high ranking
and -were big favorites over home
standing FSU in their annual basketball
game.
The Seminoles took it to them
and the best team won Sunday night.
FSU closed off the Gator inside
game and was quick enough to run at
the shooters on the inside out game.
Al.Thornton had a great scoring
night and FSU had another big Sunday
night basketball win.
Thete's something about the
Noles and Sunda, in the Civic Center.
They beat Florida two \ears ago on a
Sunday and hate upset Duke and


North Carolina in the past three years
on Sunday.
If I was a future opponent I think
I'd try to avoid Sundays in Tallahassee.
SATUDAY NIGHT'S BIG GAME
East Gadsden and West Gadsden
meet for the first time in boy's basket-
ball Saturday night at the Jaguar Gym.
East Gadsden is 5-0 in the sea-
son's early going while the Panthers
were looking for their first win going
into Wednesday's game with John
Paul.
Both teams feature some fine
player's. Larry Jackson leads West
Gadsden. The 6'6" senior has signed
early with FAMU and is a force inside.
He'll face 6'6" junior Sam McLaurin
for East Gadsden who will be highly
recruited next year.
If this game is anything like the
70's and SO's Gieensboio- Shanks
garnes you better get then early to get
a ticket. The JV game starts at 6 pm.


Jaguars bop Godby 70-38


East Gadsden jumped out to a 27-6 first quarter
lead and went on to best Godby 70-38 in boy's
basketball play Friday night in the Godby Gym.
After a Wednesday night lacing of FAMU, East
Gadsden raised their record to 3-0 with the Godby
win.
In the win over the Cougars Darius Jackson


was the only double figure scorer as he hit 11
points. In all 11 Jaguars scored. Sam McLauriri
topped the rebounders with 10.
East Gadsden hosted Wakulla Tuesday night
and will host West Gadsden Saturday night in a
big inter-county game. It will mark the first time
the schools have played each other in basketball.


The Munroe Bobcats ran their early season
basketball record to 3-2 with a pair of district wins
Thursday and Friday.
On Thursday the Cats defeated Aucilla 52-41
in Aucilla with John Dooner hitting 19 points and
Clay White 18.
Rebounding wise Ben Young topped :lungs
with 10 and White had 6 assists.
Friday night in Carabelle the Bobcats won 61-


28 placing 4 players in double figures.
White hit 14 to lead things. Colby Tyus scored
12, Alex Clark 11, and J.T. Helm 10. Dooner
picked off 9 rebounds, and Helm got 8. Dooner
also had 6 assists.
Munroe played FAMU Tuesday night. They
v ill pl.i. at Apalachicola Thursday before hosting
Nor th Florida Friday. That game will conclude
their season before the Christmas break.


WGHS loses to John Paul II


West Gadsden got a chance for some revenge
Wednesday night when they hosted John Paul 11 in
boy's basketball.
. The Panthers lost to the Tallahassee team 66-49
last Thursday in the John Paul Gym.


West Gadsden had three double-figurer scorers
in the game with Recarder Marlowe hitting 16,
Larry Jackson 14, and Ronnie Jackson 10.
After Wednesday's game the Panther will play
at East Gadsden on Saturday.


Sneads nips Carter-Parramore

The Carter-Parramore Lions played another Antron Johnson had 11 and Reshard Johnson 10
close game before getting nipped by Sneads 58-52 for C-P.
on Thursday night. C-P is 0-3 and hosted Chiles Tuesday night
C-P led 29-26 at the half but was out scored 19- and Atlantis Wednesday night. They play at Port
12 in the third quarter. St. Joe Saturday and at Maclay next Tuesday.
Eric Williams hit 13 points to lead the Lions.


EGHS girls win key game,


Panthers split, Cats drops 1


By Susie Morris
West Gadsden High School girls' basketball
team split last week while Munroe dropped a key
district game and East Gadsden won a key district
game.
The Panthers Tyesha Battles lit up the back-
board in back to back games last week. Battles
scored 36 points on Wednesday night in an 84-49
loss to Rickards and then hit for 37 points the very
next night in a 57-20 win over Apalachicola.
In the Rickards game the Raiders led 41-30 at
the half and 56-36 leading into the final quarter.
The Apalachicola game was quite the opposite.
West Gadsden outscored the Lady Sharks 21-4 in
the first quarter and led 31-14 at the half. They
held Apalachicola scoreless in the third.
Battles hit two three pointers as part of her 37
points and also "had eight rebounds. Jasmine
Charleston led on the boards with eleven rebounds
and Battles dished out twelve assists on the night
to help out her teammates on offense.
Munroe lost a District 3-A game at Aucilla
Christian on Thursday night..
Aucilla led 30-18 at halftime but a strong Lady
.Cat third quarter put the score at 36-33 with
Aucilla with a slim lead going into the fourth
quarter. Aucilla went on to win 44-36.
Kyndal McPhaul was the lone Lady Cat in dou-
ble figures scoring 13 points. Julia Bates and
Malorie McKinnon added eight points each as
Munroe dropped to 2-3 on the season.
East Gadsden left no doubt as to which team
was the strongest in Class 4A District 2 with a


thorough 80-31 thumping of Panama City Bay.
A dozen Jaguars scored in the easy win with
Chelsea McMillan leading the pack with 23 'points
followed by Jasmine Grice with 16. McMillan
also finished with another double-double with
twelve rebounds. Grice added five assists and
five steals. Dytesha Francis added five steals as
well as the team moved to 6-1 on the season and
4-0 in district play.

Late Quincy native escaped historic airplane crash


Marshall football player missed fatal


flight in 1970 because of arm injury


by LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor

Nathaniel Ruffin was watch-
ing a movie at a Huntington, W.V.
theater Nov. 14, 1970.
A 1968 Carter-Parramore
graduate, he excelled academical-
ly and athletically in high school,
earning a football and ROTC
scholarship to attend Marshall
University.
He was co-captain of the foot-
ball team the Thundering Herd
- but missed the game against
East Carolina that Saturday night
in 1970 because of an arm injury.
Like the rest of the audience,
he was stunned to see a news bul-
letin roll across the screen


announcing the crash of the plane
carrying Marshall's football team.
"They stopped the movie and
ran the news story," said Ruffin's
younger brother, Alphonso
Barnes, said. "He was one of the
ones who had to go out and help
identify the bodies."
All 75 people aboard the plane
died when it crashed, including
Quincy native David DeBord, a
lineman on the team.
Warner Bros. made a movie
about the disaster and the recov-
ery of surviving members of the
team, the community and the col-
lege. "We are Marshall" will be
released in theaters nationwide
Dec. 22, and Warner Bros. held a
special screening of the movie for


surviving family members Dec.
12.
Ruffin, no. 25, played defen-
sive back for the Thundering
Herd. A 1970 Marshall
University Press Guide describes
him as a player who "moved into
the starting Marshall defensive
backfield as a sophomore and
learned his trade well. He made
mistakes in the early going but by
the end of the campaign he was
more than living up to, his poten-
tial. Ruffin has fine speed and he
likes to hit."
Ruffin was one of 22 players
not on the plane the night of the
crash. Four coaches, including
Red Dawson, who played for
Florida State University, also


were not on the plane; neither
were seven athletic staff members
and six fans. Because it was a
small plane, the cheerleading
team opted not to take the flight,
although one squad member's
parents both perished on the
plane.
Southern Airline
flight 932 left Kinstoni.
NC, at 6:38 p.m. Nov.
14, 1970, carrying .
Marshall's football .
team, coaching staft
and fans to
Huntington, WV fol-
lowing 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 exploded.
Ruffin went on to play for the
team for the 1971 season, and
graduated from Marshall with
honors. His character in the
movie is played by Anthony
Mackie.
Before his death in
)Oc r, ober 2001 of leukemia,
{ Ruffin asked to be
buried in Spring Hill
/ Cemetery in Huntington
i,,t to six players who
died in the crash but
could not be identified
I and former Marshall
assistant athletic
director Ed Starling.
At the time of his death, he
was vice president of community
relations with The Freedom
Forum, a foundation based in
Arlington, Va., geared toward the
promotion of free press, free
speech and free spirit. He also
worked for the Gannett Co.,


doing a stint as human resources
director for The Herald-Dispatch
in Huntington and was a distin-
guished Marshall University
Alumni. Marshall University
established a scholarship in
Ruffin's name after his death.
Along with his brother,
Ruffin's parents, J.T. and Idella
Barnes, still live in Quincy; as
does his sister, Marilyn Jackson,
and brother, Willie Earl Barnes.
Another brother, J.C. Barnes,
now lives in Winter Haven.
Jackson said the family got
invitations to the special screen-
ing, but didn't attend because of
her father's health. They do plan
to see "We are Marshall" when it
is released Dec. 22.
"He talked about the team
quite often he loved that organi-
zation and that team and that
city," she said. "After the crash,
he had a very hard time, a very
hard time. It stayed with him the
rest of his life."

Faculty Spotlight


A full-time faculty mernber in Respiratory
Sciences, Helen Dorman understands
that she is not just a professor, but a ilie-
Slong learner as well. Even with movie than
V: '. 20 years of experience in the field, she
admits that changing technology keeps
her on her toes

Respiratory Sciences is a health specialty
that primarily works with life support
.. f technologies in treating and managing
patients that require these systems.
"Respiratory Care is such a dynamic
field, you can't stand still." Dorman explains. "There are constant
advances in research and new procedures that we have to keep up
with Our faculty has to stay abreast of all of those advances, so we
are constantly reading medical journals and attending conferences to
get the latest information "

"Aside from the changes in health care itself, the greatest changes
I have encountered over time would be in the choices we now have
in course presentation." Doi man continued. "Courses can be Web-
based, Weo-assisted, or hybridized between the two. I also use
interactive software for getting concepts across as well as clinical
simulation scenario software that is interactive in preparing students
to take their board exams "

As a professor of Respiratory Sciences in TCC's top-notch program,
Dorman claims that the best part of her job is getting to be in the
classroom with the students She enjoys seeing the outcome of her
influence on her students and giving them the necessary education,
in subjects such as Cardiopulmonaiy Hermodynainics, to become
excellent practitioners Dormnan credits the entire respiratory care
profession in the Tallahassee area for the success TCC's program
has experienced

According to Dorman, "It is so important for students to understand
the 'why' of what they. are doing and to get the whole picture so that
they can apply their critical thinking skills in the clinical arena.
This goes much farther than performing a procedure correctly."

Very soon, citizens of Quincy and parts
of the county will have a choice of cable
companies. "Beginning Friday, people can
register to become City of Quincy cable cus-
tomers. We are offering people the opportu-
nity to register now and get (cable) installa-
tion for half-price," said Ray Eaton, director
of Information Technology for the City of
Quincy.
Friday night, following the Christmas
Parade, will be the first opportunity for
potential customers to register for the serv-
ice. The system should be ready in mid-
January for the first customers.


uncnes new





service Friday


"The first people who will be able to
access cable will be those who live along
where major lines are already established.
Other neighborhoods that get the service
will be determined by the number of people
who register," Eaton said.
Cable will also be available to customers
in Chattahoochee, Havana, and Gretna. "If
people want to get cable in their neighbor-
hoods, they need to get all of their neighbors
to pre-register," he said, adding, "We're
going to the neighborhoods where the most
people sign up first."
There is also a package that includes both
cable TV and Broadband Internet access,
according to Eaton.
The city will offer about 150 channels


initially. The cable was made possible after
the county awarded the bid to the city as the
technology provider.
But for the past three weeks there have
been outside problems visiting the technolo-
gy department.
Last week, someone cut the cables
at Magnolia Forest hampering progress for
several days. This weekend the department's
truck was vandalized and Eaton found
screws in the tires of the SUV he drives.
"Nothing like this has ever happened
before. We have our eyes on the vandalism
and police are investigating both cases,"
Eaton said.

Redeemed, Inc. has 'wish list'


for several area needy families


Holidays are especially sad for children who
don't get gifts. Little ones who see the television
commercials touting popular toys and games for
Christmas often know that they will not have the
same kind of holiday.
Redeemed, Inc., a local organization that helps
chidlren and families of those incarcerated, has a
wish list for several children. If you can be an
angel, selected a child or two to help.

"We try to provide each child with two sets of
weather appropriate clothing including underwear,
t-shirts, and socks. If possible we would like for
each child to get an educational or fun toy," said
Annie Berry-Britt, founder and executive director
of Redeemed.
She said teenagers would like to have small
personal CD players, board games such as
Monopoly, chess, Memory, backgammon, Clue,
etc.
"The little girls still like dolls, tea sets, play
stoves, and they love to play dress-up. Fisher-
Price educational toys have helped a number of
children with'their school work," she said.
Berry-Britt suggested work toys such as
Learning Friends Lily or Tad, DJ learning radio,
Word Wammer phonics and the Alphabet Bus.

Tomato growers face huge losses


Bottom falls out of prices; post-harvest decay takes toll on crop already picked


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

While there was a lot of good
information on wilt manage-
ment, fumigants, mulches and
tomato decay last week during
the annual Tomato Forum, the
price of this year's crop was
never too far away.
Hank Suber, who farms
about 120 acres of tomatoes
near the Georgia-Florida state
line expects to lose thousands of
dollars this year. "We're talking
somewhere in the six figures,"
he said.
The truth is without any bad
weather, meaning hurricanes,
tomato crops are good all over.
"In order for us to have good
luck, unfortunately some other
farmer has to have bad luck,"
Suber said.
Farmers, they say, got about
$4 per box this year. That's
hardly worth the cost of picking
them. So, Suber and others are
going to plow the crop under
and call it a season.
And, as if low prices weren't
enough, local farmers have to
leave their already picked crops
in the warehouse.
"We can't ship them because
of what is called post harvest
decay," Suber said, the fungus
that attacks the fruit. The USDA
won't allow them to be shipped.
But farmers like Suber take it
all in stride. "Every year it's
something," he said. Last year
some farmers had trouble hiring
help because a large number of
migrant workers opted to go to
Mississippi and Louisiana to
help with the Katrina clean-up
to make more money.
It's the small farmer, locals
say, who gets hurt most when
there are problems. "The big
farms are picking somewhere all
the time, so a problem in one

lot of money this year. (Photo by Alice DuiPont)


spot doesn't hurt them as much.
For us, we have to put money
aside when we have a good year
to make it through the bad
years," Suber said. Tomato
farmers do not get federal subsi-
dies when they have a bad year.
And just in case a bad year's
crop wasn't enough to dampen
things, Dr. Stanley Culpepper, a
University of Georgia weed
extension specialist, said they
can look for federal legislation
to designate how far they will
have to be away from dwellings
to use certain fumigants.
Culpepper said he expects
that the new rules, which will
probably come out in February,
will affect farmers in urban
areas before it reaches here. "In
some parts of Dade County they
have farms next to shopping
malls," he said.

vanishing tradition?


By LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor

Drive south on the Florida
Georgia Highway from Havana
and you'll see it the giant snow-
man, light-adorned deer and rows
and rows of Christmas trees.
Take a right on Santa Claus
Lane and you're there the
Havana Christmas Tree Farm,
the only Christmas tree farm in
Gadsden County and part of a
dwindling trend in agricultural
industry.
"The Christmas tree farm is
kind of a dying breed," said
Linda Sellars, wife of farm
owner Wil Sellars. "When Wil
first got in the business, there
were 350 members in the Florida
Christmas Tree Association -
now it's down to about 25 mem-
bers."
The couple, originally from
Thomasville, works year round -
planting trees to replace the ones
that were cut down, trimming
trees and watching to make sure
none succumb to disease.
"Younger folks aren't interest-
ed in Christmas tree farming it's
a lot of work," Mrs. Sellars said.
Florida Christmas Tree


Association Treasurer Jack
Ewing, on his way to present a
live Christmas tree to Gov. Jeb
Bush Monday, said several fac-
tors come into play when you
talk about the decline of the
Christmas tree farm.
"One of the problems is the
high cost of land. The younger
generation doesn't prefer to do
the work, especially in the hot
Florida sun, and people in the
industry are getting older, retiring
and selling off their farms,"
Ewing said. "The demand is still
there, but we don't have the
farms anymore."
Ewing and his wife, Judy,
own the Santa's Christmas Tree
Forest farm in Eustis. They deliv-
ered four, 7-feet-tall trees to the
Capitol Monday; a Southern red
cedar for the governor and one
sand pine each for the state's
chief financial officer, the state
Department of Agriculture and
Consumer Services marketing
department and Agriculture
Commissioner Charles Bronson.
Mr. Sellars started his Havana
.farm in 1988. Six years ago, he
and his wife added yard art to the
farm's inventory.
"It's very popular," Mrs.


s-w

several yard art pieces available at the Havana Christmas Tree
Farm. (Photo by Leslie Roberts)


Sellars said. "The same people
come out every year and get ,
other pieces for their yard sets."
Customers can either cut their
own trees or buy a potted tree.
Cut trees go for $7 per foot; pot-
ted ones, $10 per foot.
"A lot of families like to take
a measuring stick and a saw and
go out and cut their own trees,"
Mrs. Sellars said. "It becomes
kind of a tradition."
The farm grows Leyland
Cypress, sand pines, Frasier firs,
Scotch pines and cedar trees. The
Sellars plant from 1,500 to 2,000
trees per year.
Christmas tree seekers started
early this year, Mrs. Sellars said.
"This year was very unusual -
we sold about 30 trees before
Thanksgiving," she said. "We
were twice as busy on the Friday
after Thanksgiving as we were
this time last year. People are
generally happy when they come
out this year, people just seem
to be more excited and happier,
and more looking forward to
Christmas than in the last five or
six years."
The farm is open daily from 9
a.m. to 6 p.m. November through
Dec. 24. It's as much a tourist
attraction as it is a place to buy a
Christmas tree, Mrs. Sellars said.
"A lot of people like to come
out and have their pictures taken
for Christmas cards," she said.
"Kids love coming out here.
We've sold trees on Christmas
Eve and Christmas Day we had
a soldier come in and buy one
before going to Iraq, or some-
times soldiers' families will buy
one in January for soldiers
returning home."
The Sellars plan to expand the
gift shop next year and will con-
tinue to repair yard art people
bring in to have repaired.
"I feel like it's work year-
round here," Mrs. Sellars said.
"but it's a fun thing to do."


Choosing your


Christmas tree

By LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor

Still looking for that perfect Christmas tree?
Here are a few tips from the Florida Department of
Agriculture and Consumer Sciences;
U When you visit a choose-and-cut operation, walk among
the trees and find the one that will fit that special spot in your
home. Wear comfortable clothes and shoes Christmas trees
grow in natural environments.
U Before you go, determine where in your home you will
display your tree. With this in mind, you'll be able to tell what
height tree you will need and whether all four sides of the tree
need to be suitable for display. Linda Sellars of the Havana
Christmas Tree Farm says the average tree sold from her farm is
6-7 feet tall.
U There are several ways to check how fresh the tree is:
The needles should be resilient. Take hold of a branch about 6
inches from the tip, between your thumb and forefinger, then
pull your hand toward you allowing the branch to slip through
your fingers. The needles should adhere to the branch and not
fall off in your hand. The needles should be flexible, not brittle.
The tree should have a good fragrance and good, green color. A
fresh tree will retain its moisture content and thereby keep its
fragrance and needles, if kept in a stand that had a good water-
holding capacity. Keep an eye on the water supply, and replace
it when needed.
Nationally, arourtd 30 million real trees are used for
Christmas annually. They are grown on farms and plantations in
Florida as well as in almost every .other state and Canada..
Christmas tree harvesting does not upset the ecology,
according to the state DACS. One of the main reasons for that
is that Christmas tree growers plant more than 85 million trees
to replace the 30 million that are harvested.
The Christmas tree tradition dates back to 1500 A.D. The
first Christmas trees were decorated with roses cut from paper,
apples, wafers, sugar candies and candles. Later, cookies in the
shapes of angels, hearts and animals replaced the wafers.
In Florida, red cedar, Virginia pine, sand pine, spruce pine
and Leyland Cypress are grown specifically for use as
Christmas trees.

The Riley Family
Johnny, Cynthia and our daughter Joycelyn pray to our Sovereign
Lord that these words will reach you with heartfelt and sincere
gratitude, for the love you gave to us during the loss. of our
beloved Crystal. Never before have we seen such outpouring of
care from good friends such as you. We experienced the awesom,
power of God, moving throughout this community as well a5
friends from far and near who reached out to us with condolence:
There were other experiences where we saw God's wonderfn,'
power at work; a concerned community working together to comr
to the aide of a family in need, warm hearts and encouraging:
arms, the loss of selfness which often time blocks giving and aid
ing others. The most awesome experience we received was ever-
one praying together to God for our strength. These deeds wer,.
most precious and will forever be on our minds and in our heart,
Ecclesiastes says, "For everything there is a season and a time for
every matter under heaven." We believe and trust God that
Ecclesiastes also offers hope that the time will come for us to live
and rejoice again. To our friends, servants of God, well done. We
pray for great blessings for you and your families from our God
who recognizes every good deed and work.




With all our Love,




Quincy, Florida 32351




All these blessings will come upon you and accompany you if you
obey the Lord your God- You will be blessed in the city and
blessed in the country. The fruit of your womb will be blessed,
and your flocks. Your basket and your kneading trough will be
blessed. You will be blessed when the crops of your land and the
young of livestock-the calves of yo.r herds and the lambs of you
come in and blessed when you go :.;. -Deuteronomy 28:2-6

A fundamental part of a person's life is shaped by the toys they play with as children. All children play with toys, whether it is a store bought toy, or a homemade toy. Some
toys are passed down from generation to generation as family heirlooms. Other toys are worth a lot of money, and are collected by collectors. These toys are usually not
taken out of their original package, due to the fact that they would loose value without being in perfect condition. Toys are quite specific to ones age and.the game or activity
that is being played at the time. For example. balls and bats are used in baseball games, and rubber duckies are used by small children at bath time. No matter what age a
person is, what types of toys they like, one thing is for sure. Everyone loves toys!
The history of toys is as old as the cavemen. '-l:.I made of grass and stone have been discovered at the sights that were once home to the ancient cavemen. Miniature
sized tools, or small carvings of animals have also been found. This indicates that both male and female children had toys. Through the ages children have had toys that
mirrored the society in which they lived. Ancient E g..-piar, .hilrien had dolls that had different wigs. Wigs were a part of the society, such as the black wig wom by Cleopatra.
Dolls have also been found in Egypt, which had joints and could be moved in a realistic fashion, such as today's Barbie dolls. Ancient Roman children played with similar toys
as the Egyptians, including dolls and -:il- They also invented the game known today as jacks. It was called Knucklebones', since the jacks were made of bones. Kites were
popular in Ancient China. In the 1800's toys began to be mass produced. This was due to the availability of technology and materials that came along with the American '
Industrial Revolution. A doll was the first toy to be placed onto the assembly line for mass production.
Toys are not only for amusement or to pass the time, They are also used to help children learn things about the world in which they have yet to discover. That is why small
chii.dren have blocks and balls, and older kids like to play in miniature kitchens, or forts. All these toys aid in development, both mentally and physically. Creative learning and
exercise are two mproilnt tr ini for children which activities with toys can provided. It just goes to show that learning really is a lot of fun!

Multicultural Week.




celebrated at HES


Havana Elementary celebrat-
ed Multicultural Week
November 27-December 1 with
an array of activities. Each grade
level was assigned a country or
area of study. PreK Florida
(HIavana), K Japan, 1st -
Mexico, 2nd Africa, 3rd -
United States, 4th China, 5th -
France-and ESE Antarctica. All
the teachers incorporated the
study of these countries in their
lesson plans. Each grade level
decorated their hall or walkway
to, showcase the country studied.
Monday, Nov. 27 all students
were involved in writing essays
which were judged Tuesday by
3rd grade teachers Mrs. Tamela
Hinson and Mrs. Audrey Taylor.
The writing prompt for grades
K-2 was, "Close your eyes.
Imagine that you'take a trip to
another country. Write a story
about the experience." The writ-


ing prompt for grades 3-5 was,
"We are all different -in some
way. In the United States there
are many different cultures. Why
is it important to respect and
learn about other cultures?
Explain."
Wednesday, Nov. 29 was a
Celebration of Diversity. A
school-wide multicultural pro-
gram was conducted with Miss
Havana Elementary, Shakerria
Jenkins presiding. HES student
Juan Quesada opened the pro-
gram with a Welcome speech
translated in Spanish by Ms. Ana
Cabeza, Exceptional Student
Education Resource teacher. The
winners of the Essay contest
read their essays for all the stu-
dents to enjoy.
Mrs. Maria Pouncey coordi-
nated a special presentation enti-
tled, "A Little Bit of Mexico."
Students from various schools in


Gadsden County performed
dances ranging from the Ancient
Aztecs to the well known
Mexican Hat Dance. Principal
Mrs. Elizabeth Turner and Mrs.
Tamela Hinson presented Mrs.
Maria Pouncey with a special
Certificate of Appreciation.
Lunch time Thursday Nov. 30
was especially enjoyable.
Students and faculty were given
the opportunity to sample foods
from around the world and back
home again. They enjoyed such
tasty delights as Sesame chick-
en, collard greens, cornbread,
nachos, pastry, rice, hot dogs,
dried fruits and tea. After lunch
the Kick-Off
Celebration and Parade of
Flags commenced. Selected stu-
dents from each grade level gave
a 5-7 minute presentation of
their specific area of study.
Friday saw the culmination of


Multicultural Essay Winners: (no particular order): Joe Slater, Jaylah Washington, Ashantae
Washington, Kahlik Robinson, LeDevin Davis, and Kahdeja Hendley.


all the activity with a "Trip
Around the World." Students
walked the campus to view each
grade level's display of the coun-
try studied. Due to inclement
weather the Field Day activities
which were to include games


from "Around the World" were
cancelled. They have been
rescheduled for Friday
December 8.
The week.of November 27-
December 1 proved to be an
excellent learning experience for


everyone. As Principal Mrs.
Elizabeth Turner expressed to
the students Wednesday, "We are
all different but, we all belong to
the human race. Let's embrace
each other in love and under-
standing."

WGHS Hosts Speaker on World AIDS Day 2006


George W. Munroe Elementary

School has Math and Science Night

George W. Munroe Elementary School held its Math and Science
Parent Night on Tuesday, November 28th at 6:30 in the school cafetori-
um. Mrs. Burton, the music teacher, lead students in some math songs
then taught the songs to the parents so they could sing along with the stu-
dents. Next, the math and science standards were discussed with the par-
ents. Each grade group had a table set up with math games for the par-
ents to take home, along with a science investigation. Pictured above
2nd grade teachers Mrs. Heather Garcia, Ms. Susan Barnett, and Mrs.
Margaret Wood show the students an experiment involving magnetic
force. On Tuesday, December 12th will be our winter program featur-
ing the music department.


As part of its World AIDS Day
activities on Friday, December 1,
West Gadsden High School host-
ed Mr. Keith Blocker as a guest
speaker. Blocker, who is from
Charlotte, NC, and presently
employed by the Gadsden
County Health Unit, was invited
to the school by teachers Mrs.
Mary Bailey and Ms. Susan
Thompson.
Students from Mrs. Bailey's
Life Management Skills class
and Ms. Thompson's Personal
Fitness class were introduced to
HIV/AIDS through a powerful
slideshow presentation that
focused on the causes and results
of HIV/AIDS. As part of the
WGHS Coordinated School
Health Program, the presentation
highlighted the prevalence and
impact that HIV/AIDS is current-
ly having on the world and
Gadsden County in particular.
Students were amazed to find out
that a typical HIV/AIDS patient
can pay up to $3000 per month in
medicine and care.
Blocker also informed stu-


dents of the massive amount of
spending that has been related to
HIV/AIDS care and treatment.
Many students had the same
question when they discovered
that over one trillion dollars had
been,spent on care and research:
why no cure? Blocker reminded
students that two vaccine pro-
grams had been tested, but were
found not to be reliable enough
for treatment and prevention in
humans. The fact that a disease
so powerful and deadly can't be
stopped by drugs and treatment
brought home the presentation
for many students.
In an effort to help students
make good decisions in the
future, Blocker reminded them
that prevention is the easiest way
to deal with HIV/AIDS. Outside
of abstinence, the most reliable
means by which a person can
prevent the acquisition and
spread and HIV/AIDS is to use
protection. Blocker stressed the
importance of having a health
body and immune system. He
implored students to make good


I .~2t~'


decisions in all aspects of life,
especially when it comes to
health related matters and sexual
partners.
After telling several personal
stories about people he had
known whp had died with AIDS,
Blocker informed students of this
year's World AIDS Day theme:
Keep the Promise. The idea
behind the theme is that every
person should promise not to
infect others with the disease.
Knowledge of a person's
HIV/AIDS status is key to the


promise, and Blocker reminded
each student that if they are sexu-
ally active, they should ask for an
HIV test during yearly physical.
Blocker asserted that early detec-
tion is essential to the treatment
of HIV. Blocker also informed
students that early detection can
be vital in stopping the spread of
HIV to future sexual partners.
Students, faculty, and staff
were all treated to HIV/AIDS
pamphlets, red ribbons, and
refreshments following the end
of Blocker's presentation.

'Woman to Woman' program addressing needs of young women at PCA


Life can be confusing
and challenging for young
women in today's society. Peer
pressure, the stress to engage in
sexual activity, and young
motherhood has seemed to
place an unsightly blemish on
their innocence. Fortunately
for the girls at Carter-
Parramore Academy, there is a
way to voice life's concerns and
discuss dreams and goals that


they have. Since the beginning
of the school year, the -group,
Woman to Woman has come to
the school, in an on going effort
to change the girls lives for the
better.
Started in 1991, Woman to
Woman is a non-profit organi-
zation that focuses on decreas-
ing infant mortality. It also
serves to to promote women's
health. Betty Proctor, the pro-


gram director says that "by
keeping women healthy,
women can in turn have healthy
babies."
Positive sexual practices,
family planning, and baby
spacing are discussed on a reg-
ular basis. One session, for
example, centered on contra-
ceptive and sexually transmit-
ted disease education. After a
brief lesson on the different


STD's, the young women were
then presented with a slide
show that vividly illustrated the
disastrous effects that STD's
placed on people's bodies.
The group is also a peer-sup-
port group, where aspirations,
habits and careers are also
talked about for eventual
imporvement of the girl'sjives.
Towards the end of the1 pro-
gram, the focus shifts to what


kind of lasting legacy the young
women would want to leave
behind to their families and the
community. Jemisa Lamb, a
freshman at CPA said, "Woman
to Woman is a group that makes
you feel comfortable to express.
yourself. Our business stays
within the group. What we talk
about means something to the
people in the group. I enjoy the
class a lot, and I think that


every girl should have a chance
to enter the program. I guaran-
tee that they would like it as'
much as I do." Kristie Thomas,)
the group facilitator for the
CPA class adds,
"They [the girls] have
changed based on the program:.
They have sharpened their
healthy practices and parenting
skills. These girls have been
very enjoyable."

December 2, 1942 was a brutally cold day in

A.M., he had reached the squash court at the
University of Chicago, located underneath the
stands of the school's football stadium.
The immigrant was Enrico Fermi, winner of the
1938 Nobel Prize in physics. He had immigrated
to the United States in 1938 without first return-

Sweden, as his native Italy had become a Fascist
dictatorship under Benito Mussolini, Fermi had
sufficient concerns about continuing to work in
such an environment that he and his family
decided to flee.

members of his research team, scientists with
