Mother pleads

guilty to

pointing gun

by ALICE DU POINT
Times Editor
Tammy Williams Davis pleaded guilty last
week to two counts of aggravated assault and one
count of possession of a firearm on a school
property. She was charged with pointing a gun at
two girls who argued with her two daughters at
West Gadsden High School earlier this year.
Davis, then 34, was arrested in March, 2006
after two female students told school personnel
that she pulled a .357 revolver and pointed it at
them in a threatening manner after school.
When arrested Davis denied removing the gun
from her locked glove compartment and denied
telling her daughter to remove bullets from the
trunk of the car.
Davis was sentenced to two years of community
control (house arrest), ordered to forfeit the
firearm, have no contact with the victims, and
must take anger management classes. She was
also fined $230 and ordered to pay $370 in court
costs. She was charged with pointing a gun at two

Small Farmer of the Year


County


looks at


promoting


growth

by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
Gadsden County's economic development
consultant Brad Day said that in February
he will present a plan that will be the first
step in improving economic development
opportunities in Gadsden County. "I'm
going to share with you a tactical plan. It's
what we can do in 100 days," he said
Tuesday night during the regular meeting of
the Board of County Commissioners.
He said that while it is nice to be able to
plan for years before trying to attract
businesses, his vision is to turn the county
around. To help do that Day has established
a relationship with Enterprise Florida and
others, because it is essential to have a close
relationship at the regional and state levels.
He also promised to establish a marketing
program. "You don't need to go after
everybody. There are 350-400 people in the
country who do economic development
presentations," he said. He said Gadsden
County shouldn't be hard to generate
interest. "We have the finest industrial park
in this part of Florida. Nothing in any
neighboring, county compares to what we
have here."
After he presented his PowerPoint
presentation, commissioner Doug Croley
asked Day, who makes $60,000 per year, if
he worked for the board of county
commissioners or if he worked for the
county manager. "It seems confusing to me
and if I am confused, the public might be

Sadler honored for farm work


by LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor
Roseanne Sadler worked hard to
keep her farm going.
A nurse at Florida State Hospital,
she works at the hospital at night
and around the farm, feeding cattle
and doing other chores, during the
day.
For her effort, and her
persistence, the West Florida
Resource Conservation and
Development Council named her
Outstanding Small Farmer of the
Year for 2007.


"It kind of touched our I'- ni
that shL-i *. ani to keep this farm and
pass it on to her daughters," said
Charlie Conerly, coordinator of the
West Florida RC&D Council.
Sadler grew up on the 99-acre Mt.
Pleasant farm she lives on. Since
the death of her mother in 1998,
she has worked to keep the farm
going.
Sadler, who has two children,
Amanda, 20, and Jennifer, 18, put
money aside paycheck to paycheck
to pay for the cost of fencing in
pastures for her cattle.
She currently has 11 cows.


"I .i11 have a lot to do, but I'll get
(i Jon,,," she said.
She got a helping hand from folks
at the local Farm Service Agency,
who put her in touch with the
USDA Natural Resources
Conservation Service. It w ps there
she discovered EQIP the
Environmental Quality Incentive
Program through which she was
able to get reimbursed for some of
the fencing she had done.
Her parents raised a variety of
crops and livestock on the farm,

92 Christmases in Gadsden


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
Julia Woodward, the matriarch of the
Woodward family, probably could have
spent her Christmases in Scotland, or the
south of France or in the North Carolina
mountains but she has opted to spend every
Christmas she has been on earth in Gadsden
County. Now, at 92, she's not about the
change. While her entire family will not
here for Christmas, they'll start piling in the
day after Christmas.
"They have children and grandchildren
now and it's so hard to pack tip all of their
stuff and bring it here and pack it all back
up again. Besides, I think people ought to


be home for Christmas. I've never insisted
that my children come home for
Christmas," she said.
Woodward recalled her own childhood
Christmas a few days ago. "Every
Christmas my daddy would say he wanted
all of his descendants around him," she said.
Woodward grew up in the house that is
now the Quincy Garden Club. Her father,
she said, was 54 years old when he married
her mother who came to Quincy to teach
school. "When mama walked in the door
(married her father) daddy already had
grandchildren," she said, adding, "my daddy
just loved children, he had 18 (10 by his

Restoration of old Quincy High School probably won't happen


by LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor
Gadsden County School Board
member Eric Hinson's fight to
save the old Quincy High School
building isn't over, but it's
beginning to look like he's


waging a losing battle.
During Tuesday night's regular
school board meeting, board
members debated the cost of
razing the building vs. restoring
it. They've put off making a final
decision on the issue until June to
give Hinson time to explore all


the options, but learned Tuesday
from district grants coordinator
Tammy Farlin that little funding
is available for restoration
projects.
Originally, Hinson had hoped
that it would be possible to
restore the building through a


grant from the National Register
of Historic Places.
Farlin's research showed that
the $50,000 available through
that grant would have no direct
impact on the restoration of
Quincy High School.
"The $50,000 grant is actually


to be used for completion of the
(National. Register of Historic
Places) grant, not for restoration.
It's a very complex process,"
Farlin said. "Very few grants out
there allow you to use funds for
construction and restoration."
Vice Chairman Roger Milton


said he sees little reason to apply
for the grant.
"I recommend not pursuing the
historic grant it will cost the
district money," he said.

County hears legislative program for 2007


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

The county's legislative con-
sultant, Chris Doolin, presented
the 2007 Legislative Program
Tuesday night for the considera-
tion of the Board of County
Commissioners.
While some issues such as
rural economic development,
juvenile justice funding, fiscally
constrained revenue sharing,
solid waste/recycling funding,
recreation, and transportation
for the disadvantaged will
remain on the drawing board,


other items needed the commis-
sion's approval for submission
to the legislative delegation.
The following were approved
for submittal to the delegation:
* A community budget request
to secure funding to begin
implementation of recommen-
dations resulting from the
Infrastructure Study funded dur-
ing the 2006 legislative session.
The 2006 Legislature appropri-
ated $350,000 for Gadsden
County to initiate a county-wide
infrastructure plan. The overall
amount is 12 million dollars.
A budget request supporting


funding for a comprehensive
Public Safety Complex that will
include renovations to the exist-
ing jail facility; construction of
a Sheriffs Administration build-
ing; a fire/rescue facility; a new
emergency operations com-
mand center; and the incorpora-
tion of a police headquarters for
the city of Quincy. The amount
is 22 million dollars.
A community budget request
supporting funding for neces-
sary renovations and expansion
to the Gadsden County
Courthouse. $900,000 anticipat-
ed.


A community budget request
supporting funding from the
state for repairs and renovations
to the Gadsden Community
Hospital. The amount is 1.5 mil-
lion dollars.
A community budget request
to secure funding for a regional
center/hurricane emergency
housing shelter that will provide
Gadsden County and adjacent
counties with a regional multi-
purpose emergency shelter for
use by the general public and
special needs purposes. The
amount is 18 million dollars.
* The West Gadsden Historical


Society is seeking $332,500 for
renovations to the Dezell
House. The project was ranked
#57 out of 128 projects. The
Department of State is request-
ing 15 million dollars to fund
the first 53 projects. The BoCC
would ask the legislature to
allocate sufficient funding to
fund through the top 57. The
additional amount would be
$900,000.
The BoCC supports an
increase in funding for
Affordable Housing Programs
and related housing initiatives
through the State Housing


Improvement Program (SHIP),
the Community Development
Block Grant (CDBG) and other
programs. This year 2006-
2007 the county is receiving
$455,676 and increase from
$363,626 in 2005-2006.
The BoCC is requesting
$250,000 to support the
Gadsden Students Training
Academy for Reaching Success
(G*STARS) Program.
Doolin commended the coop-
eration exhibited by the county
municipalities in working with
his office to pull together the
legislative program package.


County to revisit RV ordinance


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

An ordinance that started out as
a good idea and also a way to
clean up recreational vehicles
mainly around Lake Talquin -
may have to be revisited. As it
stands now, the ordinance states
that anyone parking an RV is an
area that is not designated for RVs
is in violation of a county ordi-
nance. That means if your brother
and his family come to visit a few
days and decide to live in their RV
that is parked on your property,
they have violated the law. "That's
not what we intended," said com-
missioner Ed Dixon.
And that's what has two
Pensacola couples upset. The Lee
and Johnson families both own
RVs that are parked on their prop-
erty at the lake. They say they


visit in the spring to fish a couple
of weeks and they may visit for
long weekends several more
times a year. Jim Lee said they
owned the property and the RV
prior to the existence of the code.
"We ask to be grandfathered in,"
he said. Since the Lee family
owns the older RV, they are not
affected.
It's the Johnsons who have the
newer RV who don't see the code
as fair to them. Ann Johnson said
no one has ever stayed in their RV
when they were not there. She
doesn't believe the ordinance was
aimed at them, but they have been
adversely affected.
The issue was brought to the
attention of the board of county
commissioners when residents
complained that RVs were perma-
nent living accommodations for
several people at the lake and that


improper and n-ibe danreiou

As long as we think, we can be better than we are.

By Alice DuPont, Editor



Contemplation A



As Christmas approaches, are


you needy or greedy?


For some reason at this time of the
year -when people want to open their
hearts and pocketbooks wider- more of
the greedy are showing up rather than the
needy.
It's a sad state of affairs when people
who are financially able to have a nice
Christmas for themselves and their
children are literally pushing poor people
out of the way.
They are so greedy that they will take
the coat off the back of a poor child in
order for their child to have "another"
coat. As soon as they hear that someone is
trying to do something nice for the less
fortunate, they want in on it. Some of
them even have the nerve to show up in
new cars and in the latest fashions and
bling.
I know that there are people out there
who are in genuine need. It is true that
there children who, without the kindness
of others, would not get a toy or any gift
for Christmas. For whatever the reason,
their parents cannot afford to keep a roof
over their heads, their bellies full and buy
gifts, too. These are the people who need
help.
A couple of years ago I attended one of
these Christmas giveaways. As I was
leaving, I happened to be walking behind
a man who was quite angry about


something. When I got closer, this is what
he was saying: "If I had known it was
going to take this long to get toys, I
wouldn't have even bothered, I can buy
my son's toys myself," I heard him say to
a male companion.
Or the woman who arrived at the
school bookbag giveaway and became
upset because they didn't have the kind of
bag she wanted. She, too, said she would
go buy her child a bookbag.
These people don't need help. They
are, plain and simple, the greedy and not
the needy, They ought to be embarrassed,
but they're not. I think that some of these
folk have, because people try to help,
decided to let others take care of their
responsibility.
I can just imagine what they must be
thinking: "Why should I begin saving in
June for my child's Christmas toys and
clothes when all I have to do is hold out
my hand, or why should I deny myself
what I want when some school or church
or individual is going to take up my
slack"?
Take a look at yourself, and if you
really don't need help this year, back off
and allow someone who really needs the
help get it. If you do, you'll have a merrier
Christmas.

It Came Upon A




Midnight Clear


I tell you what I like about Christmas.
It's those little candy canes hanging all
over the tree. The real ones that you can
pull off and lick! Now, I haven't actually
plucked one off and sucked on it since I
was a kid. But I still like the look of the red
and white against that green background.
The beauty there is both uncomplicated
and majestic. It dials up a memory
overflowing with love and passion and
peace. A picture that is truly timeless. And
a serenity hangs about it that passes all
understanding.....
I like Christmas because of the
wonderful gift of anticipation. You were
enthralled with the possibilities! I reckon
it's the "visions of sugar plums". A big
package that you couldn't figure out-with
you name on it! Who was going to visit
next? A late night ride to "look at the
lights". Trying to sleep so Santa could
come....but trying to stay awake to catch a
glimpse.....
I like the smell of Christmas. The fresh
cut needles mingled with pop corn,
caramel, eggnog, cinnamon and yes, the
peppermintery scent that lingered on your
hands after you had hung a few candy
canes "down on the low limbs". I
remember the cranberry sauce odor being
stronger than that emanating from the
dressing or the turkey or the asparagus
casserole.
I remember the brand new smell from a
just opened store-bought shirt. And the
mixed aroma of sulfur and potassium and
aluminum phosphate from Leon's Gilbert
Chemistry Set lingers with me to this day.
As does the yet-to-see-the-road smell of the
brand new rubber tires on my very own
brand new Western Flyer.
I like Christmas because we would lie
in front of the fire for hours and wonder
how Santa Claus could squeeze himself
down that small chimney. And what did he
do over at John Ingram's house because
they didn't have a fire place. How did he
know to bring the B B gun here and leave
the Barbie doll at Pam Collins's house? We
tried to picture Blitzen and Donner and
Rudolph whipping St. Nick around the
world in one night. We didn't doubt it for a
second. I like Christmas because it rises


above the cynicism, the doubters and the
naysayers. And one more thing ~iow was
Santa going to get around that smoldering
hot backlog......
I like Christmas because it brought our
family closer together. We were never
really apart, mind you, but there is just
"family magic" that abounds in December.
Mom would be stringing pop corn or trying
to get that angel balanced on the very top
and she was so beautiful, she glowed! Dad
said very little, but he smiled more, didn't
push us quite as hard and managed to
deliver on the important things we had
asked Santa for.
David and I would play for hours on
that old braided rug without our usual
outburst. Aunt Beatrice would rush in with
every canned product she had "laid by" for
the last-four months. Uncle F. D. would be
tossing us up to the ceiling and laughing.
Pa and Gran would tell us about when our
Mother was a little girl. No one ever said
out loud that family is the best gift of all.
But somehow we all understood it. Leon
didn't even beat on us at Christmas time....
I like Christmas because I finally got to
be the father and truly realized for dead
certain positive that it is more blessed to
give than to receive. My boys would play
on our rug without fighting. Now there's a
miracle to rival water into wine, lepers
healed, blind men seeing..... The
excitement in their eyes reflected me back
to a braided rug and a roaring fire. Cathy
would be up on a chair adjusting the top
string of lights and she was so beautiful,
she glowed. We talked of aunts, uncles,
parents, cousins, nephews, nieces and
friends-past and present, that have
touched, and blessed, our lives.
It may be different years, but it is the
same Christmas!
Come Christmas morning, I hang pretty
close to the phone. Leon will be calling any
minute now. He is the big brother. Time
and space and jobs and years and careers
have never interfered or deterred him from
that responsibility! It's Christmas. He is
going to check....and share.. .and hear for
himself all is well, all is calm.....

in-depth interview with Kris Kringle
because, well, inquiring minds want
to know. It was that or a discourse on
safe holiday food handling practices.
Look at this as the lesser of two evils.

Santa: Let's see, world population

pretty busy.
GCT: Er, you don't seem
particularly jolly today.
Santa: You know, perception is
everything in this business. Nobody
worried about whether I was jolly or
not they just knew I was kind and
generous until Washington Irving
caught me chuckling over a draft he
wrote of his story about Dietrich
Knickerbocker. One minute I'm
polishing off my milk and cookies in
his living room, the next I'm a jolly
guy with a sleigh pulled by flying
horses flying horses! Can you
imagine?
GCT: Actually, it was the flying
reindeer aspect I personally had a
problem with in the second grade.
Some of my little friends told me ...
Santa: Honey, that is so 1897 New
York Sun. Try harder.
GCT: That sounded almost
Southern.
Santa: Southern to you, yes. I'm
St. Nicholas in some places, Father
Christmas in others, Pere Noel in
France and Sinterklaas in Holland,
one of my personal favorites because
it's so fun to say. Try it.
GCT: Sinterklaas.
Santa: Ho ho ho. Now that makes
me jolly.
GCT: I'm glad to hear that,
because now I need to ask you about
your trip through Chattahoochee last
year. Heard you got a speeding


ticket.
Santa: What, I can slide down
chimneys, keep up with who's
naughty and who's nice and drive a
flying reindeer-powered sleigh but I
am incapable of obeying the speed
limit?
GCT: So that's not true?
Santa: Have YOU ever tried talking
eight flying reindeer into going 35
m.p.h. when they know full well they
still have to get to Tijuana and
Beijing in the same night?
GCT: So it is true?
Santa: No further comment. But do
tell me, what would you like to find
under your Christmas tree this year?
GCT: Well, I've kind of had my
eye on a 599 GTB Fiorano.
Santa: V12 in it?
GCT: Yep.
Santa: You go through
Chattahoochee very often?
GCT: On occasion.
Santa: Probably not a good idea. Any
other ideas?
GCT: A one-hour Midway City
Council meeting during which all
business at hand is concluded and no
one maligns anyone else.
Santa: Optimism that's a trait I
admire, even if it's pointed at a pipe
dream. How about a stationary
bicycle?
GCT: Got one.
Santa: Do you use it?
GCT: Of course I use it it makes
a great place to hang clean laundry.
Santa: Surely you can think of
something else?
GCT: A lifetime supply of Diet
Coke?
Santa: Do the words "He sees you
when you're sleeping, he knows
when you're awake" mean anything
to you? You'll be awake 23 hours a
day if you add one more drop of
caffeine to your current intake. I
don't have the time.
GCT: OK, surprise me.
Santa: I always do. Got to run have
a very merry.
GCT: You too, Santa.

GCSO morale is low

Dear Editor,
When Morris Young ran for Sheriff he made
several campaign promises. One of which was to
improve the morale of the Sheriffs Department.
When is that going to happen? Morale is at an all
time low. Morris knows it is and is doing nothing
to improve it. I would say if you don't believe me
go and ask a deputy, however, all the deputies
have been told that if they make any negative
comments concerning the Sheriffs Department
they will face disciplinary action.
The patrol deputies, through their sergeants,
have asked for a meeting with Morris to discuss
their concerns and problems with the department
and its chain of command. How can you violate
the chain of command when the chain of
command is the problem?
Morris and his administration have
discriminated against, harassed and retaliated
against certain deputies. When asked why this is
the way it is the answer is that Morris has the
right, as sheriff, to do this if he wants to.
If the patrol deputies treated the people of the
communities the way they are treated by the
administration of the sheriffs department they
would be fired.
If only Morris worried more about the morale
of his people rather than what kind of rims to put
on his new truck maybe we would be in better
shape.

From



Where


I stand



by Eddie Ledbetter,
General Manager


Greetings


from a


new face


in town

Hello, Gadsden County.
I apologize for not
introducing myself sooner, but
adjusting to a new home and job
have kept me busy during my
first two weeks here in Quincy.
First, a little about myself. I
moved here from Statesboro,
Ga., where I had served in
various editorial
positions at the
Statesboro
Herald for
nearly 10 'a
years, the lat .
five of which I .4'
served as
managing
editor.
'Before
that, I was
a reporter, columnist and
photographer for several
newspapers in south Georgia.
One of those papers was the
Bainbridge Post-Searchlight,
right up the road from here. I
left that job to take the one in
Statesboro, which I've
considered my home for most
of my adult life. I also have ink
in by blood by way of being a
former printer and press
operator many years ago.
When I left Bainbridge to
return "home," I distinctly
remember thinking "You know,
if I ever decide to make another
move, I wouldn't mind coming
back to the Bainbridge area."
So when I recieved an email
from Times owner Ron Isbell
inquiring about my interest in
taking a look at employment
with the Times, my ears perked
up.
After several emails, phone
calls and a visit and brief tour of
Gadsden County, we eventually
agreed that I belonged here.
So here I am, and so far, I'm
very happy to be here. It was
difficult to pick up up and leave
my friends and family, and
particularly my colleagues at
the Herald, but this felt like the
right move for me at this time in
my life.
And I've been more than
pleasantly surprised to find the
staff here more than capable of
bringing you the news you want
and need right here in Gadsden
County.
I still have much to learn, but
I'm eager to contribute to this
historic newspaper in this
historic city.
As far as any changes in the
paper under my watch are
concerned, I'll turn to you, the
reader for help with that. Any
suggestions or ideas are
welcome anytime.
One thing I do want to do is
increase the the Web presence
of the Times. While I don't
believe it's a top-priority project
just yet, I believe we can offer
more than we do now on the
Web site without sacrificing the
quality of the paper product.
It hasn't taken me long to
understand how important this
newspaper is to this community
and the last thing I want to do is
take a step backward in that
area.
So please bear with me as I
learn the ropes here at the


Times and around Gadsden
County.
And most importantly,
please feel free to stop by the
office and say hello.
I hope to be here for a while.

Havana man arrested in Leon County armed robbery


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

Willie F. Pennick of Havana
has been charged with armed
robbery, armed kidnapping and
possession of a firearm by a
convicted felon stemming from


a robbery on December 5 in
Leon County. He is currently
being held in the Gadsden
County Jail on unrelated
charges.
According to a report
released by the Leon County
Sheriff's office, a man said


another man approached him at
the Monteray Apartments on
Old Bainbridge Road in
Tallahassee asking for a ride.
When the two left the man
pulled out a short rifle and
demanded money. The victim
said the man forced him to drive


to banks throughout north
Tallahassee, getting money
from ATMs.
The victim then drove the
man to a Texaco gas station just
south of Havana where the man
allowed to victim to go and ran
to another car.


1-10 traffic stop ends in drug arrest


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

A routine traffic stop on
Interstate 10 last week led to the
arrest of 35-year-old Kristi
Tiffeny Fields of Tulsa, OK.
According to information
released by the Florida Highway


Patrol, Fields was driving a 2002
Chevrolet Avalanche when
Florida Highway Patrol officers
stopped her because the tint on
the driver's side of the vehicle
was too dark.
After giving verbal consent
for troopers to search the car,
officers found five computers,


jewelry, two pairs of Air Jordan
shoes, iwo portable play stations,
numerous items of clothing with
the tags still attached, six fraudu-
lent driver license/ID cards and
365 forged American Express
checks (234 for $500 each and
126 for $200 each) totaling
$142,200, and five forged bank


checks. Fields was arrested and
taken to the Gadsden County Jail
and charged with possession of
forged travelers checks and pos-
session of fraudulent driver
license/ID cards. The vehicle
was also seized along with
$2,404 in cash found in the
Avalanche. '


A video of the man exiting
the victim's car was located by
Tallahassee investigator Mark
Lewis. A description of the
vehicle was circulated and on


December 9 Lt. Jim Corder of
the Gadsden County Sheriffs
office located the car near
Havana, leading to the arrest of
Pennick.

Havana OKs new police chief


by LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor

New to the position but not the
area, long-time law enforcement
officer Glynn Beach said Tuesday
he's looking forward to being
chief of the Havana Police
Department.
The Havana Town council
approved unanimously his hiring
Tuesday morning during its regu-
lar meeting. ,
Several reasons he decided to
apply?
"Havana is a small town -
there are a lot of people I know
here," he said. "I have kids in this
area and I think I have something
to offer."
A veteran of Vietnam and the
Gulf War, Beach served in the
U.S. Army Special Forces both
active duty and as a guardsman.
He was also appointed to train at
the FBI academy at Quantico for
four months. He earned his bach-
elor's degree in science in crimi-
nology at Florida State
University, and has worked for
the Quincy Police Department for
38 years in a variety of capacities,
from patrolman to assistant chief
to interim chief.
The two careers have several


similari-
ties, he ,
noted.
"Law .
enforce-
ment is -
kind of a '.
paramili-
t a r y
organiza- k
tion," he
said.
For the Beaches, family is
foremost on their list of priorities:
Beach's wife, Linda, says law
enforcement officers are "kind of
like family", and the couple's four
children, three of whom live in
Gadsden County and the other, in
Leon County, see their parents
often.
Several of them attended
Tuesday's meeting to see their
father recommended for the posi-
tion.
The couple also has 11 grand-
children.
"I like that on Sundays, my
kids are in church, my grandkids
are in church," said Beach, who
serves as an elder at New
Philadelphia Presbyterian Church
in Quincy.
After living in the same home
for 37 years, the two recently

moved to Havana it's a require-
ment of the job and are looking
forward to the challenges ahead.
His wife has supported him
throughout his career, Beach said,
and stays involved in the lives of
law enforcement officers he
works with.
"We have a real open-door
policy in our home all these
guys at the Havana Police
Department, I will become their
mother, if they'll allow me," she
said with a laugh.
Beach, 60, said he has no plan
to make any changes at HPD,
which has a staff of four dispatch-
ers and 10 officers. He intends to
poll current employees on what
their goals and hopes are for the
department.
"I want to find out something
about that office what are their
goals, where are they going with
that," he said. "Because of our
location, there are a lot of law
enforcement state agencies that
local law enforcement officers
can go to and make better pay,
The biggest challenge in keeping
people here is salary. We can't
match the salary they might get at
the state agencies, but we can
improve the work environment
and the working relationship."

Beach is a strong proponent of
education for law enforcement
officers he wants them to stay
current on changes in laws and
how those are to be implemented
on the job.
He sees a new facility as one
of the biggest needs for the HPD,
and one is currently in the works.
The new chief, who once
flipped hamburgers at the
Chandler's restaurant in
Bainbridge ("I think everybody .
who's been here any length of
time has worked for Chandler's,"
he said), sees public service as
both a requirement and a pleasant
aspect of the job.
"I enjoy working with people.
I enjoy serving people. For every
individual getting into law
enforcement that's a considera-
tion," he said. "When I started
out, I didn't look at law enforce-
ment as being a career. Time
doesn't stop for anyone. I tell
(new police officers) that one day,
they will be where I'm at and I
have been where ith', are.""

New law would change oversight of charter schools


by LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor

The way things stand, the
Gadsden County School Board
oversees the one charter school
in the county and the establish-
ment of any others.
That would change under a
recently-enacted law.
And while the local school
board isn't a plaintiff in a lawsuit
filed Dec. 15 by the Florida
School Boards Association
claiming the law is unconstitu-
tional, local School Board mem-
bers support the filing of the suit
Chairman Isaac Simmons said.


"Our position is, we are in
favor of the lawsuit," Simmons
said Tuesday. "We think the
charter school should come
under the governance of the
local school board."
The new law gives the Florida
Schools of Excellence
Commission the ability to grant
charters.
Part of the problem the local
school board has with that is that
it creates the possibility that
members of the commission
could grant a charter to any
school in the state without con-
sulting the school board in the
county in which the charter


school would be established.
That, they say, is in direct con-
flict with the state constitution.
"I think most charter schools
benefit from governance by the
local school board," Simmons
said. "For example, we provide
meals for a fee, we provide
transportation, for a fee I think
this would hurt the local chart
schools if they did this."
Currently, Crossroad Academy
is the only charter school in
Gadsden County. It earned an
"A" grade from the state depart-
ment of education last year.
Charter schools are public
schools that are managed by


groups or businesses that are not
affiliated with the county school
district.
Simmons, who was nominated
Tuesday night during the regular


Gadsden County School Board
meeting to continue his role as
Gadsden County liaison to the
state School Board Association,
said he doesn't see any benefit to


changing the current structure of
charter school oversight.
"Local control works," he said.
"I think we're doing a good job."

Mentoring program




helping local schools


by LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor

Some students do just fine
with a standard school day.
Others need a little extra
help.
It's those students local edu-
cators hope to find a little
assistance for through an ongo-
ing campaign to recruit men-
tors for them.
"There's so much research on
it that says when kids are men-
tored they have more successes
in academics and in life," said
Gadsden County Schools
Superintendent Reginald
James. "It's proven to be
effective for all grades."
Quincy City Manager Bill
Bogan, who serves as a mentor
to two Carter-Parramore
Academy students, asked city
commissioners two months ago
to grant city employees who
want to mentor a paid hour off
to do so during the work day.
Commissioners approved the
request.
Bogan started mentoring, he


said, because of a desire to
give back to the community.
"I've done that in the past -
it's a need," he said.
"A lot of times young people
do not have a vision.
Mentoring is a way to help
them find one. The young peo-
ple are the future of Gadsden
County they are the future ...
I think we need to look for a
way to get in touch with our
humanity. We've all been
blessed with a great life, every
one of us."
Quincy Mayor Sherrie Taylor
says she's seen the need for
mentors firsthand.
"I was in one of the local
stores and a parent came up to
me and shared her concerns.
Her child is ESE (exceptional
student education) and is being
mainstreamed she's not physi-
cally capable of doing what
other students do," Taylor said.
"She needs to be pulled out and
worked with individually. She's
not adapting to this new con-
cept of inclusion there are a
number of children who need


that extra help. The concept of
mentoring is a need in Gadsden
County."
Educators cite mentoring as
one of the factors involved in
the recent improvement of the
grade Stewart Street
Elementary receives annually
from the state. Last year, the
school got an "F" grade. This
year, they were just shy of a
"B."
Florida Lt. Gov. Toni
Jennings attended the mentor-
ing campaign kickoff at the
school earlier this year.
"Stewart Street is a model of
what a school can become
when mentors are involved,"
Jennings said in a press release.
James said even one hour per
day can make a huge difference
for a child who is struggling.
Volunteers currently mentoring
have made a tangible contribu-
tion to their academic progress,
he added, but many more are
needed.
For more information about
how to become a mentor, call
627-9651, ext. 265.

I like Christmas because of the
pace. I complain about it some.
But that's just talk. I have always
enjoyed the hustle and the bustle.
I have meandered through
Christmas laden aisles from
Bailey Moore Wrinkle's
Hardware to J C Penney's to
Edwin Watt's Super Golf stores
and I have found something on
near 'bout every one of them that
made me think of someone
special on my list. I didn't buy
everything for everybody... .1I
didn't have to. They know.
I like Christmas for the
music. And the It's A Wonderful
Life reruns. And the bells. And


the Cantatas. And the Christmas
specials on t. v. where it always
looks bad for the family the first
hour....but it works out in the
end. And I especially like
opening the card that begins "To
the most wonderful dad ever...."
I like Christmas because we
pause for a moment. We reflect.
We think. We ponder. And
hopefully we emerge as better
people. Kinder in our thoughts.
More loving in our daily
administrations. More Christ like
with those who persecute us.
I like Christmas because the
unhappy among us can't taint it.
The unlearned can't take away


our memories or our joy. The
legislators can't mess this one up.
The grinches spoil it only for
themselves.
I like Christmas because it is
the season of joy. The night sky
is brighter. The stars nearer. The
air clearer. The shepherds never
closer. And the message reigns
down through the ages....
I like Christmas because of
the hope that it gives us for all
eternity.


Merry Christmas,

Kes and Family

It's not like Lee Thomas is
looking for something else to
add to his schedule.
But he is looking to give
something back to the commu-
nity he moved to in 1998 from
Miami.
A part-time bus driver for
the Gadsden County School
District, he is also a student at
Tallahassee Community
College, where he is. studying
computer science.
He started building and
rebuilding computers as a
hobby; now it's also a profes-
sion. He opened Lee's Computer
Repair two years ago and works
out of his garage.
'I just wanted to give them to
deserving students," he said


Friday at Crossroad Academy,
where he gave two students
computers he'd rebuilt. "It's a
nice time of year to give."
The students, sixth-grader
Darius Gonzalez and eighth-
grader Miracle Gunn, have each
maintained a grade point aver-
age of 3.0 or higher and have not
exhibited any behavioral prob-
lems, teachers said.
They were surprised to learn
Thomas was giving them com-
puters and that he had installed
Microsoft Office '97, Microsoft
Word, Excel and PowerPoint on
each of them.
Darius' first response was to
laugh. Asked how he felt about
it, he said, "Good."
"Use your sixth-grade vocabu-
lary," teacher Kevin Forehand
prompted.
"Great!". Darius capitulated.


"Terrific!"
Thomas plans to give more
computers to Gadsden County
students in the months to come
as he has time to repair and
deliver them.
"I found one of these in the
trash and the other was left at
my shop by the owner," he said.
"I like to see people with com-
puters."
He charges $75-$125 for the
rebuilt computers he sells out of
his garage shop.
"I don't try to hurt somebody
pricewise," he said.
Father of two children,
Thomas said he's never regret-
ted relocating to Gadsden
County.
"I like it here the pace, the
people," he said. "You don't
have to fight traffic it's nice."


City manager defends gas leak response


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

Bill Bogan, Quincy's city
manager, took exception to crit-
icism over a gas leak leveled at
the utilities department last
week by Don Gibson, owner of
Don's Hair on Jefferson Street.
"Folks have to understand
that it will be the either the fire
department or the police depart-
ment, that the utility department
will not be the first responder,"
Bogan said.
"We don't have people (in the
utility department) sitting
around waiting for someone to
call about a gas leak," he said.
He said that the fire department
is part of the city and that they
work together with the utilities
department. Gibson said it took
20 minutes for someone from


the utilities department to rep-
sond to a downtown gas leak
and the time was excessive.
Bogan said it only took nine
minutes to respond and that
there was no danger to citizens
because the fire department had
secured the area. He denied
there ever was a gas leak, but
rather called it a "gas smell".
"How can it be a smell when
you can hear the hissing and
see gas shooting into the air?"
Gibson asked.
Bogan said someone had
been working in the back of
Gibson's salon and ran over the
gas meter. "Who ever was
working down there should
have reported it. I can't believe
that someone ran over a meter
and didn't report it," Bogan
said.
"What does it matter how it


happened? It happened and the
utility department should have
been there to correct it sooner,"
Gibson said.
"We met the situation with
what I believe was a reasonable
response," Bogan said.

Churches set for Watch Night services


by LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor

It's called Watch Night, and
there are several theories about
how it began.
Usually held on either
Christmas Eve or New Year's
Eve, depending on the church,
church members meet at around
10 p.m. to worship and wel-
come in either the traditional
anniversary of the birth of
Christ at midnight or the new
year.
"We chose New Year's Eve -
watching the old year out and
the new year in," said Rosalind
Walker-Copeland, pastor of
Highly Exalted Praise
Ministries in the Shiloh
Community.
"It give-s -pe nple the opportu-
nity to be in church and give
God thanks for the new year


coming in ... it gives them an
opportunity to choose to forget
about the old year and start the
new year fresh, to go into the
new year with a changed mind,
with a transformed mind."
There is a precedent for
Watch Night in the Bible:
"Arise, cry out in the night; in
the beginning of the watches
pour out thine heart like water
before the face of the Lord." -
Lamentations 2:19.
The 13th chapter of Mark
advises readers to be vigilant in
keeping an eye out for the return
of Jesus: "Take ye heed, watch
and pray. For ye know not when
the time is." Mark 13:33.
The observance is often
believed to be more predomi-
nant in African-American
churches than in white; the rea-
son for that is often attributed to
a gathering on Dec. 31, 1862,


also known as "Freedom's Eve,"
during which African-
Americans gathered to await the
finalization of the Emancipation
Proclamation as law.
Snopes.com, a website that
debunks urban legends, says
while it's entirely likely that
slaves gathered in churches and
homes to usher in the promise of
freedom Jan. 1, 1863, the prac-
tice of observing Watch Night
began in the mid-1700s with the
Moravians, a small Christian
denomination with roots in the
Czech Republic.
According to Snopes, John
Wesley, the founder of the
Methodist movement, followed
suit and added a Watch Night
vigil to the practices of his
denomination. Methodist Watch
Nights were held once a month
and on full moons, with the first
Methodist Watch Night held in


1770 at Old St. George's Church
in Philadelphia.
These days, Watch Night
services in Methodist churches
are called "covenant renewal
services."
Copeland, who oversees sev-
eral ministries, sticks with
Watch Night as a name for the
vigil and describes her church
as being focused on deliverance
ministry.
"Drug addicts, alcoholics,
homosexuals, lesbians, prosti-
tutes nobody else wants 'em.
We want 'em," she said. "Come
on in. Watch Night is kind of an
overhaul."
Some of the other area
churches holding Watch Night
Vigils include Mt. Moriah First
Missionary Baptish Church and
Arnett Chapel A.M.E. Services
at both churches are scheduled
to begin at 10 p.m.

Evans named town


clerk for Havana

by LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor

No stranger to town hall
workings, Shelia Evans said
Tuesday she's honored to be
named the new town clerk for
the Town of Havana.
"I'm very honored and privi-
leged that I was their choice,"
she said after Tuesday's regular
Town Council meeting.
Tuesday's meeting was brief,
but did afford Town Manager
Howard McKinnon the opportu-
nity to recommend Evans for the
job he once held.
"She has worked for the town
since May of 1998 and has
exhibited exemplary work
skills," McKinnon said.
Council members approved
the hiring of Evans unanimous-
ly.


Evans served three months as
interim town clerk after
McKinnon was named Town
Manager.
A Mississippi native, she
moved to Havana in 1998 and is
married to Vincent Evans. The
couple, married for 29 years, has
two children. Both live in
Tallahassee.
"I'll do the best I can for the
town," Evans said after the
meeting. "I like the small town
atmosphere you don't get lost
in the shuffle."
Evans worked as an adminis-
trative assistant before taking
over duties as interim town
manager.
The only other business on
Tuesday's agenda was approval
of a Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
Celebration Jan. 15, which the
council voted for unanimously.

Lake Seminole 'turning over'


From the information that I
have been receiving, the Lake is
turning over. This is a natural thing
that takes place in the late fall &
early suinmer. During this time
the fish just take a sad case of the
lock jaw.
The Landing was graced by
the presence of one W.T. "Snake"
Womble & one "Tinkerbell" or
'"High Teck Redneck". Both
have been under the weather &
sense they both can catch a
Speckle Perch where there ain't
none. It's good to have them
swapping tales around the land-
ing.
"Beavers build dams, it's
there nature. Humans build
towns, it's there nature." We
humans are sure building a heap
of towns around So. West GA.


Catfish has bit very good all
week long until Saterday and then
they stopped dead in their tracks.
Same as the Bass & Perch.
However, last Sunday the
10th, Mike Sloan using a
Flipping Lure had 22 hits & was
able to land 6 with one at 6 lbs.
And the Bass Fishermen
fishen deep Diving Crank Bait
hooked and landed a 17.5 lb.
Channel Catfish.
Deer Hunting is a wee bit slow
due to the hot weather, however,
there was a good many taken. Mr.
Kory Jones got a 160 lb., 8 point
Buck.
Ducks has slowed down also
due to the heat wave that hit us.
We have a nice picture of Kevin
Cook and his buddy Steven, with
their limit of Ringnecks. They


went out with one of our Duck
Guides, Steven Wells, on
Saturday morning. So much for
hunting and fishen.

wards in the restaurant. We had

New football districts announced


Football districts for the
2007 year have been
announced by the FHSAA.
East Gadsden's district
remains the same but there
will be a difference in the
West Gadsden and Munroe
districts.
East Gadsden will stay in
3-2A with Panama City
schools Arnold and Bay,
Tallahassee schools Godby


and Rickards, and Wakulla
rounding out the district.
West Gadsden will con-
tinue to have Freeport,
Liberty Co., Port St. Joe,
Wewahitchka, Jay, and
Sneads as District 1-A foes.
The new Franklin County
High School will join the dis-
trict making it an 8 team
fight.
Munroe moves from dis-


trict 2-B to 1-B. District 2-B
foes FAMU, John Paul II,
and Aucilla also go to 1-B
where they will be joined by
Cottondale and Graceville
making it an even tougher
district. Normally district's
stay the same for two years
allowing for the population
change in Florida that forces
new alignments more often
than other states.

35-


While the holiday season is a time for celebrating, the Quincy law office of Knowles and
Randolph took time last Thursday night during their Christmas party to make a donation so that
five needy families in Gadsden County will have food for Christmas and beyond. In addition to
food, each family will receive as game that is intended to strengthen family ties. Louvenia Sailor
(center) accepts a check from Roosevelt Randolph (left) and Harold Knowles (right) who want to
make the Christmas financial donation a tradition. Randolph said a large part of their business
comes from Gadsden County and the firm wants to give back to the community that has support-
ed them.

confused, too," he said. Day
Said he reported to the county
inanager. Croley listed several
Organizations involved in
economic development that
already exist and questioned how
these entities fit into Day's role.
"I see myself as a business
recruiter on behalf of the county.
We have a lot of organizations
claiming some role (in the
county) in economic
development," he said.
County Manager Marlon Brown
said the BoCC hired Day because
there was a vacuum in recruiting
efforts. But Croley insisted that
much of what Day said he was


planning to do was already being
accomplished by other
organizations.
"We have a lot of economic
development agencies out there,
his job is to create a single
source. We are aware that there
are other agencies," said
commissioner Ed Dixon. For
instance, Dixon said, when
Family Dollar was trying to find
a site for its new distribution
center they called Gadsden
County for six months and never
got a return call. Dixon said he
was told by Chamber of
Commerce director David
Gardner that his job was to look


out for the members of the
chamber.
"Nobody was looking out for
Gadsden County. We need a plan
and the Chamber didn't know. We
hired somebody to come up with
a plan for economic
development. We couldn't even
get a report (from the Chamber)
unless we threatened to cut off
their checks," Dixon said.
In other matters, Brown
announced that he recently hired
former county commissioner and
former Quincy city manager
Anthony Powell as his assistant.
The sar&-y is $60,000; Powell is a
native of Gadsden County.


Powell's hiring, Brown said,
"should round out the team I've
put together to bring quality
delivery of services to the
citizens of Gadsden County."
The BoCC unanimously
approved
Powell's hiring.
Also, commissioner Eugene
Lamb said he found information
in his mailbox detailed time
spend by the law firm of county
attorney Thornton Williams
helping the Gadsden County
Healthy Start Coalition obtain a
501(c) 3 designation, making it a
non-profit organization. When
asked if any other commissioners


had gotten the correspondence all
denied seeing the information
sheet.
During the Dec. 5 meeting,
coalition executive director Kelly
Parker told Croley, after a request
was made for $5,000 to help with
a media campaign, that the
organization had its non-profit
status.
However, the information Lamb
shared at the meeting showed
that action started on Dec. 12 for
the non-profit. The law firm also
billed the county over $1,200 for
the work.
Lamb also asked Williams if his
firm has issued another bill to


replace the more than $23,000
that was charged for conducting
an investigation into allegations
by Sam Hawkins as president of
the NAACP into the mistreatment
of a county employee.
Williams said he had made an
agreement with the Brown that
he would not charge over $8,000
for the investigation. "This was a
sensitive issue and the NAACP
had made some serious
allegations. There were over 100
pages of investigation. I have
asked my staff to look into it, I
don't know why they haven't,"
Williams said.

organization, supports
environmentally-friendly
farming practices, such as
rotational grazing, which Sadler
uses. It provides technological
information and funds to farmers
and others involved in
conservation and agriculture.


The Council serves an eight-
county area, including Gadsden,

Leon and Liberty counties.
There are 348 RC&D councils
nationwide. The program was
established by the U.S.
Department of Agriculture in
1962 and is administered through


the Natural Resources
Conservation Service.
Sadler's a fan, that's for certain.
"I kind of gave up, got
depressed, at one point," she
said.
"The fence wasn't up, my
daughters got tired of the hard


labor .... I put money into

First wife) in all."
lWoodward's father, Pat Munroe,
ias a banker and is credited with
persuading several local families
tb buy early Coca-Cola stock
Which over the years have netted
tiem a fortune.
.She remembers Christmas
Qlomings like it was yesterday.


"We went to bed early on
Christmas Eve. In the morning
when we got up each of us had a
stocking and each stocking had
an apple, orange, raisins, nuts and
banana. It was exciting because
you hardly saw any bananas in
those days. Daddy would tell
mama to go easy on Christmas so


we each got one toy," she said.
Her other favorite day, leading
up to Christmas, was the day she
and her two sisters got to sit
down with their mother and look
through catalogs to order .books.
"Mama was a school teacher and
we each got to order three books.
We ordered different books and


that way we had 9 books
altogether." Later, she retrieved
one of the books, "Lampposts"
(printed in 1923) and said she
would read it again this year.
It was a happy day for the
Munroe clan when the street was
paved. "That year we got skates.
One year we each got homemade


stilts and then another year I
finally got a bicycle. We would
ride all up and down the street in
the back of the house," she said.
But more than the material
gifts, Woodward remembers
growing up wrapped in the arms
of a loving family. "We were
close and I grew up in a family


with so much love. There was a
lot of humor, too," she said. Her
family, she said, is a family full
of 'characters'. So, as the family
grew up and older some moved
away to seek fame and fortune in
other places. "I'm the one who
stayed home," she said, and she
has never regretted a minute of it.


SCHOOL from Page 1

.Simmons said he wanted the
issue decided by the fourth
Tuesday in January, the date of
tle board's first meeting of the
lnew year.
2"It's incumbent on you by the
M)urth Tuesday in January to
govide evidence to why we
should (pursue restoration),"
Simmons said.
;Tuesday's' agenda was fairly
Eight, and included a discussion
(f how to provide adequate
ybl'ogical services to
Sadsden County students and
approval of a contract with a
%aldosta psychologist at the rate
tV $125 per hour or $52,000 for


working with students an average
of two days per week through the
rest of the school year. He will
work primarily at Havana
Elementary and Havana Middle
School.
"He is filling a position we have
not been able to fill," said Wilma
Jackson, director of the district
exceptional student education
program.
"That salary appears to be a
little bit greater than what we pay
our ..district psychologists,."
Milton said.
"That's because he's the only
person we could find," Jackson
responded.


The school district currently
employees four psychologists
and could use more, Hinson and
others at the meeting said.
Personnel Director Dianne
Decker said she met with Florida
State University Department of
Psychology representatives about
the possibility of using students
within the FSU psychology
program to counsel Gadsden
County students.
"The need for psychological
services in our county is great
and the money we have is not so,
great," she said. "It's possible we
could use doctoral students to
provide services to our students
I


or that it could be made a clinical
work component of the
program."
Decker said it would likely be
summer at the earliest before
details were finalized should the
board and FSU representatives
decide to form a partnership.
Also Tuesday, board members
voted to accept Schools
Superintendent Reginald James'
recommendation to approve
revision:ii to the Special Tejacheis

The 'locl ie:,cheis union aske
for the revisions, saying the'
original draft of the program's
guidelines made rewards given to


teachers for classroom
achievements subjective.
The program, mandated by the
state DOE, requires DOE
approval before it's adopted. The
deadline for adopting a draft is
Dec. 31. The measure will then
have to be ratified by the local
teacher's union before the end of
March.
The revised STAR draft calls
for teachers to be ranked by the

"Any time you're giving money
to teachers, you need to keep that


as objective as you can," James
said. "I tend to believe the one
using student performance is
certainly less controversial
because it's more objective ...
there's good and bad to the STAR
program."
In other matters, board
members recognized the First
Restored Church of Jesus Christ
for its contributions to Carter-
Parramore Academy. Church
members set up a clothes closet
for needy students and donated.
$500 for material and supplies.
Pastor Cantis Williams accepted
a recognition plaque on behalf of
the church.

Times News Editor

A two-headed Mayan serpent
sits in quiet repose.
Nearby, tesselations salute
passersby squarely, and bright-
ly-colored fish some Picasso-
esque, some more representa-
tional swim cheerfully along.
They're all creations of St.
John Elementary students,
whose vivid artwork is currently
on display at the Gadsden Arts
Center in the Bates Children's
Gallery:.
David Leporati, who teaches
art to students in kindergarten
through fifth grade at St. John,
said the display has a positive
impact on his pupils' self-
esteem.
"My children are motivated
to do well so their work will be
entered," he said. "It also puts a
lot of them in touch with a
strange, alien world otherwise
not really accessible to them.
But the biggest value might be
for the community to see what
some of these children are capa-
ble of doing."
Leporati said he also uses art
to reinforce other lessons the
children are learning:
Tessellation, or painting squares
in mosaic or checkerboard pat-
terns, reinforces mathematic
skills; paintings depicting
Mayan two-headed serpents and


devil masks gives kids a chance
to see firsthand what they have
talked about during history
class.
Leporati also brings science
into play, teaching children how
to make leaf prints and draw
aquatic scenes.
"Art shows the interconnec-
tion of things," Leporati said.
"...It also offers many approach-
es to an objective, which accom-
modates different learning
styles."
Gadsden Art Center staff
gave each child who participat-
ed a certificate of appreciation.
St. John Elementary
Principal Ida Walker, who
toured the gallery Friday during
her lunch break, said she thinks


the students' work is exceptiofi-
al.
"I've been at several schools
and I've never seen the quality
these students were able to pro-
duce," Walker said.
The Gadsden Arts Center
rotates displays of art submitted
from schools throughout the
county.
Arts Center Director Tricia
Collins said she wishes more
area residents were able to take
the time to come see student
exhibits.
"We are honored and proud
at the Gadsden Arts Center to
have this exhibit," she said. "We
do have miracles turn up here
from Gadsden County schools
show after show."


Gretna readying for MLK Day


by LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor

Ceremonies commemorating
the birth of civil rights leader
and Southern Baptist minister
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. are
planned throughout the county
Jan. 15.
In the past, Gretna's has been
the only one to hold a march in
honor of the courageous civil
rights activist, who was assassi-
nated in 1968 in Memphis.
"Ours is pretty unique it's
just staffed differently," Gretna
City Manager Antonio Jefferson
said. "All the events will be a
little bit different than other
things. If you hit the circuit, you
can almost hit all the events in
the county commemorating Dr.
King."
This year, Havana is plan-
ning to hold a march as well.
The Gretna ceremony begins
at 10 a.m. at Gretna Elementary
School, where participants will
march from the school to City
Hall.
There, several area digni-
taries will speak, including
Tallahassee City Commissioner
Andrew Gillum. Gadsden


County Sheriff Morris Young
will emcee the event.
Those in charge of the event
are lining up several gospel
choirs to perform, and plan to
have someone read King's
famous "I Have a Dream"
speech as well as recite poetry.
The City of Quincy is plan-
ning a weekend-long celebra-
tion beginning Saturday, Jan. 13
and lasting through Monday,
Jan. 15.
Havana is planning a Jan. 15
commemorative ceremony,
scheduled to begin at 9:30 a.m.
with a march/parade lineup. The
march begins at 10 a.m. on
Short Street behind Town Hall
and will end at 307 S.E. Gay St.
in front of Palace A.M.E.
Church. Organizers are plan-
ning a church service for 11
a.m.
King, who became the
youngest man' to receive the
Nobel Peace Prize in 1964, went
to Memphis in late March of
1968 to support black garbage
workers who had been on strike
for better wages and working
conditions.
At the time, they were paid
$1.70 per hour and were not


paid when sent home because of
bad weather, unlike white work-
ers, who were paid.
He gave his moving and, it
turned out, prophetic speech,
"I've Been to the Mountaintop"
April 3 at a rally, with the fol-
lowing excerpt often quoted
years after his death:
"It really doesn't matter -
what happens now ... some
began to ... talk about the threats
that were out what would hap-
pen to me from some of our sick
white brothers... Like anybody,
I would like to live a long life.
Longevity has its place, but I'm
not concerned about that now. I
just want to do God's will. And
He's allowed me to go up to the
mountain! And I've looked over,
and I've seen the Promised
Land. I may not get there with
you. But I want you to know
tonight, that we, as a people,
will get to the Promised Land.
And so I'm happy tonight. I'm
not worried about anything. I'm
not fearing any man. Mine eyes
have seen the Glory of the com-
ing of the Lord."
He was assassinated the fol-
lowing day on the balcony of
the Lorraine Motel in Memphis.

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.

Third Annual Paul Faircloth Sr. Memorial Disabled Hunt


Participants and guests pose
beneath a banner Saturday at
the Third Annual Paul
Faircloth Sr. Memorial
Disabled Hunt at the Davis
farm in Gadsden County this
past weekend. Twelve disabled
hunters gathered for the two-
day event and bagged eight
deer, a hog and a bobcat.


Taking their shot


Twelve disabled hunters descend on Gadsden for a


weekend in the woods


BY EDDIE LEDBETTER
Times General Manager

Fifteen-year-old deer hunter
Dylan Barnette sighted the six-
point buck and prepared for the
shot that would harvest the deer.
But just as he squeezed off a
shot, he said a gust of wind blew
up, startling the deer and spoiling
his best chance to take a trophy
home.
"I thought I shot it," he said. "But
the dogs didn't find a blood trail so
I guess I didn't. I think it was the
wind."
While that might sound like a
typical hunting story, Dylan is
anything but typical. Confined to a
wheelchair due to muscular
dystrophy, Dylan .was one of 12
participants at the third Annual
Paul Faircloth Sr. Memorial
Disabled Hunt. this past weekend
in Gadsden County.
The hunt was held at the Davis
farm near Mt. Pleasant, and is
offered every year as a memorial
to the late Paul Faircloth Sr. The


annual event is organized by Mike
Layerd and Russell Smith, and
drew hunters from as far away as
Mississippi this year.
Smith and Layerd came up with
the idea for the hunt after the death
of Faircloth as a way of honoring
him while providing a service for
disabled people who love hunting.
And while many of the hunters
were in wheelchairs, their
disabilities were forgotten as they
took to the woods in search of a
trophy.
Ray Krolikowski III, from
Jacksonville, is a veteran of the
event, having participated all three
years the hunt has been held.
"I love it. They've got a lot of
deer here. There are more deer
here than on any other hunts we go
on."
Chad Gerlaugh, a participant
from Pinellas County who is also
confined to a wheelchair as the
result of a spinal cord injury,
agreed.
"I see more deer here on my two
trips than I've seen in my lifetime


Mike Layerd, left, and Russell Smith prepare to lower a blind

readies for an afternoon of hunting.


of hunting. And that's an honest
statement."
Smith came up with the idea of
the hunt, and contacted David
Sullivan in Tuscaloosa, Ala., who
is the national director of disabled
services for the American Deer
Foundation, which is associated
with Buckmasters.
From there, the event grew into
what it is today, as sponsors
stepped forward to contribute
money and resources to the hunt.
When needed, the hunters are
equipped with special adapters on
the wheelchairs that allow them to
shoot by the most efficient means.
"We thought it would be a good
way to give back to people," Smith
said.
The hunt was highlighted by a
luncheon at noon Saturday for the
participants and guests.
Layerd's wife, Laura, who is also
involved in preparations for the
hunt, spoke of how the event also
actually gives back to those who
offer it.
"It means a lot to them, but it
means a lot to us, too. To be able to
give back to other people and the
fact it's during the Christmas
season. It's like a Christmas
present for them and for us. It's
about giving, and you don't think
about giving like this.
The timing of this is perfect."
Smith's wife, Diann, who is also
instrumental in organizing the hunt
each year, agreed.
"It's great that it's done so close
to Christmas," she said. "It's an
inspiration to me to see the smiles
on their faces when they come
here. And some of them, even the
ones that aren't fortunate enough to
kill one, just to see them out in the
woods, just watching the birds and
being in the wilderness is
something they wouldn't be able to
do otherwise."
Russell Smith was very pleased
with the results of this year's hunt,
noting that eight deer were
harvested, along with one hog, one
bobcat, and "many misses."
"That's what we want," he said.
"We want everybody to get shots,
and everybody did."
Gerlaugh summed up the hunters'
appreciation for the event and the
sponsors and organizers who take
the time and effort to make the
hunt possible. "It's a great thing
they do here. And even if we miss
a year, we know somebody else
will be here filling our spot."

Christmas is a holiday with many traditions. A tradition is a custom that is passed down over the years. Many families and cultures have special traditions over the holidays.
Christmas.traditions included celebrating the birth of Christ, hanging wreaths and holly, decorating cut fir trees, baking cookies and special foods, singing special songs
called Christmas Carols, hanging strands of bright Christmas lights, sending out cards and gifts to friends and family, and receiving gifts from family members, friends, and
Santa Claus.
Some people associate snow with Christmas because where they live it usually snows in December. Many Christmas Carols mention having a "White Christmas". "Frosty
the Snowman" is a popular children's Christmas character. In the Southern Hemisphere, where it is summer during our winter months, people still celebrate the holiday.
Though it is not cold there, they still have traditions to make the season special, People also think of Chnstmas for the trees. In ancient times, trees were used to symbolize
life and warmth during the cold winter and darkness. In Northem Europe, there was a festival held December 21st to celebrate that the shortest day of the year had passed.
It has been said that the modern Christmas trees was started in Germany in the Middle Ages. The tradition was then passed on to future generations.
The legend of Saint Nick began with Saint Nicholas who lived several hundred years ago. He is credited with many miracles. His change into Santa Claus, or Father
Christmas began in Germany where he was called Kris Kringle. The legend grew and spread throughout Europe until he became famous worldwide for gift giving at
Christmas. A.f OiM CLUESl: ;.. ... y Z, .- hJ .L; ..

Suber Wins R.EM. Spelling Bee


Bobcats celebrate Christmas


Hunter Suber, seventh grader at Robert F. Munroe Day School, won the school spelling bee in the
Carolyn B. May Auditorium on Thursday. Hunter was successful spelling "cancer" after two mis-
spelled words between him and opponent, Callie Malone. Hunter is the son of Jeff and Angie Suber
of Chattahoochee. Callie, a sixth grader, is the first runner up. She is the daughter of Thomas and
Alice Malone of Havana. Hunter will go to the county for the next level of competition. Two students
from each of the grades, fourth through eighth, competed.
Pictured in the group are: fourth graders, Ryann Moore and Max Baroody; fifth graders,
Brittany Stalans-Stewart and Walt Kelleher; sixth graders, Gabe Jackson and Callie Malone; sev-
enth graders, Hunter Suber and Maulin Patel; and eighth graders, Ashley Lemieux and Patrick
Jackson.


The Robert F Munroe Day
School fifth grade and elementary
classes have rehearsed for the past
three weeks to offer "The Legend
of the Christmas King" by Henry
Van Dyke as a Christmas gift to
the school and their families. Jean
Dore, fifth grade teacher, directed
her class in the acting practices
prior to Joni Read's return to pro-
duce and direct the entire produc-
tion. Second and third grades par-
ticipated in the chorus as the vil-
lagers, while the first graders
appeared as angels for a musical
selection.
The cast consisted of traveling
merchants, Sabu, played by Miles
Edwards, and Tabu, played by
Hunter Jacobs, who are your typi-
cal "used car salesmen" with
hearts. They narrate the story.
Mortimer, Andy Kunkler, is a new
angel-in-training. Savanah Watson
plays Artie, also known as
Artaban. Artie is distinguished by
his allergy problems throughout
the play.
Of course, there are three wise
men, Josh Darby, Blake Norman,
and Lindsey Whiddon, who travel
to Bethlehem. The innkeeper,


Roseanna Moore, Shem, Andrea
Zang, and Leah, Andrea Zang, are
other characters in "The Village of
the Son."
The sheep are a chatty group of
four who "Aaaaa" their way
through the lines in a humorous
fashion. Sam Bass, Fletcher
Morgan, Olivia Fletcher, and Alex
McDaniel play these. Madison
Baker plays the angel, and towns-
people include Brittany Stewart,
Montana Manley, and Walt
Kelleher. Brittany and Walt each
had a solo.
The production crew included
Mrs. Carolyn Summerford and
Laura Mock working sound and
lights. The set crew was com-


prised of parents and friends,
Katie Edwards, Subrina Manley,
Kent Manley, Joni Read, John
Moreau, Tammy Pope, Bill Mock,
and Karen Watson. Elementary
teachers Betty Suber, Martha
Sapp, Debbie Maxwell, and staff
member Lanie Weeks were
responsible for the
chorus and costume changes.
The parent performance was
on Monday evening, and the
grandparents were entertained on
Tuesday morning. The audiences
laughed and were enchanted by
the talent of so many students.-
Kudos go'to the fifth grade and
elementary classes for a warm and
colorful Christmas gift.

Friday to the assembled faculty,
staff and student-bodies of Hope
School and Carter Parramore
Academy. The motivational
speaker shared her life experi-
ences -both successes and fail-
ures- with the group stressing,
"My momma said get you a
good education because no one
can take that away from you."
The dual themes of education
and self-sufficiency resounded


as the speaker shared her expeii-
ences living in poverty as a
child, the realization of her high
school diploma, college degrees
and an eventual philosophy doc-
torate degree. She told everyone
to "never let anyone tell you
what you cannot do". She
reminded the student body to do
things the right way, and
appealed to them to educate
themselves and grow into
responsible parents and citizens.


Dr. Vera McIntyre

ed Suzie Johnson's sixth grade

County with his wife and daugh-
ter. Della Rose is in the sixth:

EGH science teacher




chosen for training


Carson Ealy, a science teacher
at East Gadsden High, was select-
ed by the district's superintendent
for a unique training opportunity
made possible by a $25,000 grant
from Progress Energy. The timing
of this training is critically impor-
tant because, in 2006-2007, stu-
dent FCAT science scores are tied
to school grades.
"Because science is a field that
changes daily due to research, it is
important to stay abreast of new
developments," said Brenda
Crouch, a consultant with the
Panhandle Area Educational
Consortium (PAEC). "One of the
best ways to stay current is to
attend a national conference that
offers pre-conference institutes
and more than 1,200 concurrent
sessions for science educators.
Professional development of this
caliber is expensive, and our


small, rural districts cannot afford
to pay for teachers to attend the
conference and for travel costs
associated with attendance."
That is, until now. Ealy joins
eight other science teachers from
northwest Florida who will attend
the 55th Annual National Science
Teachers Association National
Conference March 29-April 1 in
St. Louis, thanks to Progress
Energy.
PAEC received the grant to
pay conference registration and
travel costs for one science educa-
tor from northwest Florida school
districts served by Progress
Energy -- Gulf, Franklin,
Wakulla, Jefferson, Madison,
Taylor, Liberty, Gadsden and
Hamilton. As grant partners, these
districts will pay for travel costs
associated with conference plan-
ning and post-conference activi-


ties, as well as for substitute
teachers during the conference.
The grant's objectives are:
Expose teachers from low
socio-economic status and rural
areas to current, research-evi-
denced content, pedagogy and
embedded technology to enhance
teachers' ability to meet Florida's
educational goal of increasing
rigor and relevance in middle and
high school science classrooms.
Develop a capacity for trans-
feral, sharing and dissemination
of science information to other
students and teachers via online
and broadcast.
Raise academic achievement
of students in areas served by
Progress Energy, statewide, and
possibly nationally, as teachers
infuse the acquired skills and
updated science content knowl-
edge into their daily practice and


share those skills via broadcast.
"These teachers will develop
lesson plans and provide leader-
ship at the district level to ensure
their new knowledge transfers to
other science teachers and into the
classroom," Mrs. Crouch added.
As a grant partner, PAEC will
coordinate the teachers' pre- and
post-conference activities as well


as administer grant funds.
Videographers from PAEC's
Florida Education Channel (FEC)
will record teachers discussing
their lesson plans and edit these
presentations into broadcast-qual-
ity productions. FEC is available
nationwide on DISH Network on
9418, thanks to a public service
agreement.


Progress Energy Community
Relations Manager Larry Watson
said, "At Progress Energy, we
understand the importance of our
educational systems to the local
communities throughout our serv-
ice territory. Our continued sup-
port and commitment to educa-
tion helps improve the quality of
life in the panhandle region."

ticipants. The students were well prepared for the Spelling Bee and demonstrated a high degree
of self confidence. We look forward to our First Place Winner being victorious at the District

Focused.". Mrs. Dean McClurkin, Spelling Bee Coordinator.
