Greensboro


brothers


sentenced


for animal


cruelty


Men found guilty of

setting fire to dog

by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
Two brothers from Greensboro were found
guilty Thursday of cruelty to animals and
sentenced to 250 days in the county jail, three
years probation, 200 hours of community
service with animal control officers, and
ordered to successfully complete psychological
counseling. They must also pay court costs, a
$300 fine, and restitution for veterinarian bills
incurred by a couple who tried to save the dog's
life.
Before handing down their sentences, Judge P.
Kevin Davey told Anthony D. Powell, 19, and
Joseph Love, 20, that their crime was "not only
stupid but mean and horrible." The pair was
ordered to turn themselves in at the county jail
no later than Monday at 6 p.m.
Powell and Love were charged last February
after kerosene or gasoline was poured over a
dog and the animal was set on fire. The animal,
which was chained to a fence, broke free and
ran under the home of Andy and Melissa Pace
next door. The couple rescued the animal and
took it to a veterinarian, but with burns over
90% of its body, the dog was put down after
* four days.
Witnesses, including the men's mother,
stepfather; and sister, told a six-member jury

Chattahoochee solves cold case


Man charged in murder that occurred 13 years ago


by LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor
A man accused of killing Beatrice
Lazar is behind bars, where he's spent
nearly half of his life.
Chattahoochee Police announced
Jan. 4 the arrest of Victor Ross, 40,
who was charged with murder and
burglary in the death of Lazar 13 years


ago to the day.
The murder had gone unsolved until
the CPD, with help from the Florida
Department of Law Enforcement, was
able to identify' latent fingerprints
found at the scene as belonging to
Ross.
"In August, 2005, we identified some
latent prints at the scene,"
Chattahoochee Police Chief Vann


Pillen said. "Prior to that, I didn't have
any connection to Victor Ross .... once
he became a person of focus, we had
probable cause and made an arrest."
' Lazar, 42, had moved to
Chattahoochee from Arcadia roughly
one year before she was killed. She
worked in food service at Florida State
Hospital and was hearing-impaired.
She had no relatives in Gadsden

Havana man dies in probable hunting accident


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

The death of a 51-ye.u-old
Havana man, Roy Lynn
Gatlin, has been : ruled
accidental. According to a
report released by the Gadsden


County Sheriffs Office, Gatlin
left home around 4 p.m.
Saturday to go hunting in the
woods behind his Hollow
Creek Lane home.
When he did not return home
by nightfall his girlfriend,
Marcella Sterojie, went


looking for
him. Unable
to locate him,
Sterojie called
authorities.
Lt. Jim
Corder went
Gatlin to the


residence and determined that
due to the size of the area to be
searched additional manpower
was required. The search
lasted four hours before Gatlin
was located 1) ing beneath his
deer stand, which was
approximately 20 feet off the


ground. "It appears that Mr.
Gatlin fell out of his deer stand
landing on his head," the report
stated.
The search was aided by the
GCSO K-9 unit and the
Florida Game and Wildlife
officers.


County rethinking immediate-family exemption


by ALICE DU POINT
Times Editor
For months citizens have
been waiting for an answer
on the immediate-family
exemption. They will have
to wait a little longer.
Tuesday night during the
regular meeting of the
Board of County
Commissioners,, the issue
was sent back to the
drawing board for more
tweaking.
Right now, the immediate-
family process allows
historically owned family
properties in agricultural
and rural residential
categories to be subdivided
into lots or parcels smaller
than required. Lots in this
category are limited to use


and ownership by families
only.
Last November, the
county's staff presented a
draft ordinance that
amended the existing
immediate family
exemption and was
intended to provide further
clarification. It didn't.
The issue is a sensitive
one since some of the
petitioners are elderly and
want to subdivide property
so that children or siblings
can live in close proximity
but not share homesteads.
"A local government may
include in its
Comprehensive Plan a
provision allowing the use
of a parcel of property
solely as a homestead by an
individual who is the


grandparent, parent,
stepparent, adopted parent,
sibling, child, stepchild,
adopted child, or grandchild
of a person who conveyed
(gave or sold) to said
individual, notwithstanding
the density or intensity of
use assigned to the parcel in
the plan. Such a provision
shall apply only once to an
individual," "the ordinance
states.
County staff has received
numerous requests for this
exemption, and that has
been the root of the
problem.
"While these immediate
family subdivisions may
provide a benefit to eligible
immediate family members

City gets Winn-Dixie

stock in lieu of payment


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
Whether they want to or not,
Quincy's citizens are now Winn-
Dixie stock holders.
When Winn-Dixie filed for
bankruptcy on May 6, 2006 the
City of Quincy was owed
$50,101.24 in late utility bills.
Take away the $3,000 the
company had paid in a deposit
and the citizens were left holding
a $47,411.42 bag.
The company filed for
reorganization on November 21,
2006 and the plan was approved


by the bankruptcy court on
December 13. As a result, the
court approved paying the City
100 percent of the deposit, which
has already been issued.
As -payment for the remainder
of the debt, the company was
allowed to issue 1,159 shares of
Winn-Dixie stock to the City of
Quincy.
"The city was issued 46.22
shares for each $1,000 of
approved debt in the
confirmation plan," wrote Bill
Bogan, city manager, in a memo
to members of the city

TDS to close to walk-in customers


by LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor

People used to paying their
phone bills in person will have
to make some adjustments at the
end of January.
TDS Telecom is closing its
Quincy office to walk-in cus-
tomer traffic, citing a decline in
the number of people who rou-
tinely come to the office.
"Customers are visiting our
offices less and calling us more
during times that are convenient
for them, such as after 6 p.m. or
on Saturdays" said John Sango,
vice president of customer oper-
ations for TDS. "It has long been
our goal to bring technology to
rural communities and we con-
tinue with that focus."


The office, located at 107 W. Jan. 29.
Franklin St. in Quincy, will close TDS spokesman Michael
its door to walk-in customers Ogden said the company is in


the process of setting up a local
payment center customers can
use.
"We are setting up a payment
center, most likely at a bank so
they can accept cash," Ogden
said. "It looks like a lot of people
(in Quincy) do pay with cash.
We knew it was very important
for people who do walk in to pay
cash to have an alternate loca-
tion."
Ogden said roughly 15-20 per-,
cent of customers at the local
office are walk-ins; of those,
around 80 percent come in sole-
ly to drop off a bill payment.
There are already several pay-
ment options customers can use
- online payments, or phone pay-
ments with debit or credit cards
called in to 1-888-CALL-TDS.


Customers can sign up for TDS
ePay at www.TDS-ePay.com to
make payments online.
Local technical response teams
will remain in the area, as will
customer service advisors and a
local market manager. The only
change involves the customer's
ability to visit the local office.
SIt has not yet been determined
whether customers will be able
to continue to use the existing
drop box at the local office.
"TDS is committed to grow-
ing with this community and
meeting the needs of our cus-
tomers with exceptional prod-
ucts and services," said Sango.
"This change is part of a contin-
ued refinement to our business
as we move forward in a highly
competitive industry."


Local school chief prepares for TV program


by LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor

Gadsden County Schools
Superintendent Reginald James
and his wife Betty spent the bet-
ter part of last Thursday after-
noon answering questions.
The question-and-answer ses-
sion was part of a pre-taping
interview arranged by Nicole
Flesvig, who plans to feature the
two in the first segment of her
new-show, "Teacher Talk."
"Some time ago, I started a
newsletter 'Just for Teachers'
with school district updates and
news. It highlights programs that
may or may not be of interest to
educators," Flesvig said. "Then
the Panhandle Area Educational
Consortium asked if I would do a
show. We did a pilot show in
October. Reggie ard Betty James
will be our first guests."
The show, "Teacher Talk", will'
air on the Florida Education.
Channel and be taped at the
PAEC studio in Chipley.
"The show will have national
exposure on Dish Network it's
one of five public access shows
carried and the other four are all
universities," Flesvig said.
Flesvig said she plans to focus


on the superintendent's efforts to
bring the Gadsden County
School District to a higher level,
and on his wife Betty's recently-
written children's book, tenta-
tively titled "Dean Mitchell, the
artist: An Ordinary Man with an
Extraordinary Gift."
Mrs. James said she chose
Mitchell, a Gadsden County
native, to use as an inspirational
figure for elementary students in
grades three through five.
Father and Son Publishing in
Tallahassee is interested in pub-
lishing the book, she said.
Mr. James will talk about some
of the progresses within the
school district in recent years -
no failing schools, a vocational
education program that trains
high school seniors to be correc-
tional officers and the increased
number of students working at
grade level.
"In every show, I w.nt to cover
hot topics.in education and then I
want to highlight a teacher," said
Flesvig, who also serves as
teacher liaison for the Florida
Department of Education.
Flesvig said CNN consultants
helped create a state-of-the art
studio in Chipley. The air date
has not yet been determined.

MURDER from Page 1


decomposed body was found
Jan. 4, 1994 on her bed in her
home on 605 Gregory St. in
Chattahoochee.
Pullen, who was a lieutenant
with the department at the time,
said officers treated the death as
a homicide investigation but
were unable to immediately
pinpoint a suspect.
"It's a complicated case," he
said. "There was not a smoking
gun standing there or we would
have solved it 13 years ago."
Pullen said there was no doubt
in the minds of anyone at the
scene that the woman had been
murdered.
"Although the victim's body
was badly decomposed, it was
apparent that she was murdered
by strangulation," the affadavit
said. "Lazar was last seen Oct.
22, 1993 by a coworker:"
Crime scene investigators



MIDWAY from


trying to do," Piller said. "The
business of government is not a
game. We have serious problems
... the politics of intimidation, the
politics of lies, should have no
place in Midway."
Piller said he wasn't sure
whether his opposition was
motivated by "political envy,
hate, greed or recognition it
does not matter. -They put
themselves before the city."
None of the City Council
members spoke in favor of Piller
resigning.
The City Manager said he and
his staff had increased the city's


believe she was strangled with a
pillowcase and that she may have
been sexually battered before her
death.
The doors to the home were
locked, but a window on the
south side of the house was
propped open by a branch that
appeared to be broken off an
adjacent bush. The window led
into the kitchen, where two latent
fingerprint lifts were recovered
from the interior wall located
under tHe windowsill. The prints
were oriented with the fingertips
in the downward direction, "as if
the donor climbed in the
window," according to the
affadavit. Those prints were
identified in 2005 through the
Automated Fingerprint
identification System as
belonging to Ross.
Other prints were found
throughout the house;


investigators ruled out their
owners as suspects fairly early in
the investigation. Four suspects
in the case were given polygraph
tests. Investigators also talked to
a traveling meat salesman whose
fingerprints were found in the
home.
Pullen interviewed Ross in
September 2005 at Santa Rosa
Correctional Institution, where he
was serving a 15-year sentence
for the burglary of an occupied
dwelling where he was alleged to
have attempted to commit sexual
battery on the occupant, with
whom he had a prior relationship.
During the interview, Ross
admitted to working in
Chattahoochee in late 1993 to
early 1994 and said his sister,
Vickie Walker, lived at 106 Pine
St. in Chattahoochee during that
time and that he stayed at her
house occasionally. .. Her


residence was located about a
half-mile from Lazar's home.
Ross, whose aliases over the
years have included "Bubba,"
"Bubble" and "Victo," has a
prison record dating back to
January, 1983, when he was
arrested on charges of burglary of
an occupied dwelling. In
September of the same year, he
was sentenced to one year and
six months in jail for grand theft
and burglary of an occupied
structure.
In April, 1985, he was again
sentenced to burglary of an
occupied structure; by January of
the following year, he was
sentenced to two years, six
months in jail on charges of'
grand theft and burglary of an
occupied dwelling. The crimes
were all tried in Gadsden County.
In 1994, he was sentenced in
Calhoun County for charges


including aggravated assault with
a weapon (no intent to kill) and
aggravated assault on a law
enforcement officer, firefighter
and/or an emergency medical
services employee.
He was sentenced in Liberty
County to 15 years in prison on
another burglary of an occupied
dwelling charge.
The charge stemmed from the
burglary of the home of a woman
Ross had dated off and on from
1993-2000. After Ross went to
prison in 2000, the woman
moved to Liberty County and
refused phone calls from him.
In May, 2001, the woman told
authorities, she woke to find
Ross standing over her.
According to the probable cause
affadavit, he had climbed into her
home .through a bedroom
window and burglarized her
house while she slept. Ross


allegedly attempted to force her
to have sex and told her he would
beat her to death when she
started screaming.
Ross was incarcerated at Lake
Correctional Institution on
charges related to that incident
when he was arrested in
connection with the murder .of
Lazar and moved to the Gadsden
County Jail.
Pullen said while he's relieved
'to have made an arrest in the
case, it's not over 'til it's over.
"This is very unique for us, to
have a case go unsolved for this
long," he said. "I'm satisfied the
arrest has been made but we've
still got a long way to go. It's not
checked off the list or anything."
During an arraignment hearing
at the Gadsden County
Courthouse Jan. 9, Ross pleaded
not guilty. His case was reset for
April 18.

a-half year tenure from $13
million to $65 million, created
more than 500 jobs and secured
nearly $3 million in grants.
One of Piller's main detractors,
Councilman Charles Willis, said
he thinks Piller's
recommendation to award the
city's garbage collection contract
to Waste Pro doesn't give
minorities a fair chance to
succeed.
"We minorities in Midway want
to give minorities a chance to
apply and bid for those jobs like
everyone else," Willis said.
Waste Pro was the only

tax revenue during his four-and-
that the young men bragged
after seeing the incident on a
local news program.
"They said we made Channel
Six news and started laughing,"
said Johnny Crawford, the men's
sepfather.
The defense argued that the


company to bid on the contract
young men were not bragging
about the incident but rather
joking that such an incident
would make the news. Attorneys
argued that no one saw the men
commit the actual act. However,
the jdry took less than 45 minutes
to return a verdict.


and has built a regional facility in
Midway. Waste Management
stopped picking up trash in
Midway nearly two weeks ago
and did not bid on providing
garbage collection service.
Havana and Greensboro city
councils recently awarded their
garbage collection contracts to
Waste Pro, which will pick up
trash at a lower rate than Waste
Management.
The Gadsden County Times
was unable to locate a regional
garbage collection company
owned and operated by a
minority proprietor.:
Ralph Mills, Regional Vice
President for Waste Pro, said he
would pick up the trash lining
Midway roads on an emergency
basis until details of a proposed
contract between Waste Pro and
the city can be hashed out.
Meanwhile, Waste
Management's not coming back
and several Midway residents at
the meeting were irate about the
trash piling up in their driveways.
"If you all were elected to


office and you're supposed to be
protecting citizens' needs, why is
there still trash sitting on our
curbs?" asked Jermaine White.
The Rev. Willie Brown accused
Piller of plotting to bring Waste
Pro business to Midway, even
though no other garbage
collection company bid on the
contract.
"We need to kick Waste Pro to
the curb," Brown said. "This is
something the city manager has
put together to fatten his pocket."
Several times during the
meeting, Gadsden County
Sheriffs deputies who routinely
attend the Midway meeting told
audience members to quieten
down during the emotional,
sometimes loud, five-and-a-half
hour meeting.
"He thinks that I'm getting
money under.the table, and I'm
not," Piller said.
"We did not put ourselves in
this situation Waste
Management did. They pulled
out a month early. They're
pulling out of the area I don't


know why, but I'm a good person
to blame."
The remark spurred some
grumbling from some crowd
members, prompting Mayor
Delores Madison to say, "I'm
going to have officers clear the
room if you can't show some
respect."
Several residents took
exception to the length of the
proposed contract seven years -
and to a clause that they say
requires mandatory pickup by
Waste Pro.
Mills said he was willing to
revisit the contract's wording, but
needed a contract that extends
over several years in order to
make the Midway route one
worth taking.
Under rates proposed by Waste
Pro, weekly residential pickup
would cost $15 for one container
and $19 for a house with two
containers. At that rate, Waste
Pro would also pick up "white
goods" refrigerators, dryers and
other appliances -:at scheduled
times.


Commercial rates would also
drop under Waste Pro's proposal,
with weekly pickup at a business
with one, 90-gallon container
running $17 per month and
pickup for one container three
times a week running $51.
The contract also calls for
penalties to be imposed against
Waste Pro if the company doesn't
comply with promised customer
service. For example, the
company would be fined $25 per
incident if it failed to collect
garbage it had missed by 8 p.m.
the same day when given written
notice before 5 p.m.
Failure to repair damage to
customer property upon written
notice from the city would cost
the company $100, and failure to
correct deficiencies in
cleanliness, safety or sanitation
of equipment within 48 hours of
a request from the city to do so
would result in a $50 fine.
City Council members
scheduled a workshop Jan. 10 at

CRA elects to pass on first choice for manager


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

Just when the City of Quincy
thought they had a Community
Redevelopment Agency (CRA)
manager, the deal fell through.
Tuesday afternoon during the


actually made up of the Quincy
City Commissioners, the board
voted to discontinue negotiations
with the top candidate for manag-
er, Cindy Godbey.
Commissioners voted to inter-
view their second choice, Charles
Hayes, for the position after no


CRA board meeting, which is agreement could be reached on


salary and other benefits with
Godbey. Hayes is the former man-
ager and former Public Works
Director for the City of Gretna. If
an agreement can be reached with
Hayes, he will become the next
CRA manager.
Godbey took the job in
November on the condition that an


agreement could be reached with
the CRA Advisory Board on
salary. When the position was first
advertised the salary was to be
$48,600 based on the CRA's
budget. That amount had jumped
to $70,000, without explanation
by the time Godbey and others
applied for the position.


During the first meeting
between Godbey and Willie
Jackson, CRA Advisory Board
chairman, the salary issue arose.
,"When I interviewed Mrs. Godbey
she wanted $70,000 and was
immovable. The (Advisory)
Board recommended that I termi-
nate negotiations," Jackson said.


On the second meeting with
Godbey, Jackson said she agreed
to take the position for $59,000
provided it came with a vehicle for
her use inside and outside of the
city, a 2-3 year contract, a four-day
work week at 10 hours per day and
sick leave to be negotiated with

City, county try to iron out mutual problems in meeting


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor,

In an effort to foster a better
working relationship, the
Gadsden County and City of
Quincy officials continue to hold
meetings to discuss mutual prob-
lems.
During Monday afternoon's
meeting, the following items were


discussed:
*Fire Service Agreement will
be placed on the agenda for the
Board of County Commissioners
for approval.
*Gadsden County Hospital:
BoCC will hear proposals from
the three companies interested in
operating the facility later this
month.
*Solid Waste Management:


city is still in negotiations with
Waste Management.
*Community Redevelopment
Agency: funding is on hold until
the city hires a permanent director.
*Parks and Recreation: discus-
sions centered around the possible
purchase of the old Gadsden
Nursing Home on Martin Luther
King, Jr. Blvd. as a possible site
for the co-location of several


social service agencies as well as
a recreational facility. Also, the
county continues to plan a trip to
Jupiter (FL) to tour that communi-
ty's integenerational recreation
facility.
*Quincy police department's
land need was also discussed with
the possibility of a new police
department co-locating with- the
Gadsden County Sheriffs Office.


*Gadsden County IT Services
has been placed on hold. The
county's attorney, Thorntoni
Williams, will recommend that
the county let the bid again. Only
two bidders recently bid for the
service and both were overbids.
*Quincy Shuttle will be placed
on the January 23 agenda of both
the city and the BoCC. The pro-
posal is for the entities to split the


$36,000 cost to operate the serv-
ice for the next six months.
Commission Chairperson
Brenda Holt attended the meeting
along with Marlon Brown, county
manager, and his assistant
Anthony Powell representing the
county. City Manager Bill Bogan
and Commissioner Kieth
Dowdell represented the City of
Quincy.

commission.
"On our court paper it appears
that the City received fifty-three
cents on the dollar or 53% of its
unsecured claims for utilities.
However, stock is only worth as
much as it would trade on the
market place," Bogan continued.
County Attorney Jack McLean
said that when he last checked,
the stocks were worth about $12
dollars each. Not wanting to lose
more money, commissioners
voted to direct the finance
director, who is also the city
manager, to maintain the record
of issuance of the City's shares in
Winn-Dixie stock and to manage

COUNTY from


persons in the county, these
subdivisions continue to result in
the placement of homes, nearly all
on septic tanks, at a much higher
density than would be otherwise
allowed without considering the


the Winn-Dixie portfolio of stock,
giving him the authority to sell or
purchase the stock as he deems
necessary.
"I will not do anything without
the approval of this commission,"
Bogan promised.
Mayor Sherrie Taylor
recommended that the store pay a
higher deposit based on their past
history. This would offer a little
more protection should other
commercial organizations file
bankruptcy.
In other matters, Commissioner
Derrick Elias said Waste
Management's pickup in parts of
the city was so bad during the


recent holidays that he received
calls from citizens threatening to
bring their garbage to City Hall
and dump it.
"I was successful in persuading
them not to do that, but we have a
.problem," Elias said.
Bogan said he met with officials
from Waste Management last
week. "They told us people are
putting more than household
garbage in the containers. They
said people are putting car parts,
concrete blocks, glass, gallons of
paint, and things like that in the
containers. The garbage trucks
work similar to a garbage
disposal and it breaks when stuff


gets in it. That's one of the
biggest issues," Bogan explained.
He said he, too, got calls on
Christmas Eve about the failure
to pick up garbage. The utilities
director contacted the local
operator and he picked up
garbage on streets that has- been
skipped, according to Bogan.
"Citizens are saying that they
are paying their garbage bills. We
need to tell them (Waste
Management) that they need
back-up trucks regardless of the
reasons they break down," Elias
said.
Bogan agreed, but added that
citizens need to be educated


about what they can and cannot
put in the garbage cans.
In other matters:
*Bogan said that the city's
inspections were now being
carried on by Roosevelt Morris,
the City of Midway's inspector.
He said no agreement could be
reached with the consultant but
that the individual had agreed to
see the projects he worked on
through to completion.
*Commissioner Elias requested
a utilities audit. The last one was
conducted in 1992. He said the
citizens need relief from high
bills. Bogan said that the city's
bills are actually in the mid-level


range and that the Town of
Havana's utility bills are 20
percent higher than Quincy.
*Commissioner Andy Gay
asked that staff take a look at
flooding problems occurring in
the Holiday Heights area. He said
beavers were building dams in
the area causing problems and
redirecting the flow of water.
Attorney McLean said a
meeting has already been planned
for later this week with the
Northwest Florida Water
Management District and the
Department of Enviromental
Protection to discuss possible
solutions.

desired development plan," wrote
county manager Marlon Brown in a
memo the the Board of County
Commissioners. He wefit on to say
that this has resulted in dense
concentrations of mobile homes in


areas designated for very low
density residential or agricultural
development. Brown said the
county's Growth Management
Department will revisit the issue
and bring it back to the Board for


further consideration.
In other matters, the Board gave
staff the authority to take the
necessary steps involved in the
implementation of impact fees.
Several firms have been identified


and will be asked to proceed with
direction given them last fall during
a county workshop on impact fees.
The firms to be considered are:
Nabor, Giblin & Nickerson,
Government Services Group, and


ARCADIS. "This is going to be a
long, involved process but one that
will ultimately benefit the county
greatly," said Davin Suggs, director
of the Office of Management and
Budget

Man sentenced to 12 years in molestation case


Guilty verdict results in prison

time, sexual offender status
by ALICE DU PONT Wednesday found James Davis
Times Editor of Gretna guilty of lewd and
lascivious molestation on a
A Gadsden County jury last minor when she was 11 and 12


years old.
Tuesday morning, after emo-
tional pleas from his family,
Judge P. Kevin sentenced Davis
to 12 years in prison, three
years probation, ordered to pay
a $500 fine and $722 in court
costs, declared him a sex


offender and ordered him to
have no unsupervised contact
with minors upon release.
Unable to hold back her
tears, the victim told the judge
that she had forgiven Davis but
that she would have to live with
the incidents for the rest of her


life.
The child documented
molestation acts and was able
to provide the information to
Department of Children and
Families investigators as .well
as local law enforcement
authorities.


"These were not a singular
event. It had a tremendous
impact on (the victim) and she
has had to deal with it over a
period of time. She has had
nightmares and has had coun-
seling," said Richard Combs,
assistant state attorney.


One seriously injured in multiple-vehicle crash on I-10


Three-car pile-up sends three to


hospital for medical treatment


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

A three-car accident on
Interstate 10 sent three people to
the hospital Saturday just after
noon. According to a report on
file by the Florida Highway
Patrol this is what happened:
Filiberto Rodriguez Barron, 44,
of Fort Myers was driving a
2005 Ford SUV, followed by 38-


year-old Kristian J. Hempel of
St. Petersburg in a 2003 Mazda
van, and she was followed by
57-year-old Angel Samano, 57,
of Wimauma in a 2005 Ford.
All of the vehicles were in the
eastbound in the inside lane. For
an unknown reason, traffic
ahead had slowed down.
Hempel saw that the vehicle
behind him was closing in
quickly and moved over to the


inside shoulder.
The left front of the Barron
vehicle collided with the rear of
the iempel vehicle which began
to rotate counterclockwise and
entered the median. Hempel's
van then slid sideways in the
median and overturned several
times. The van finally came to
rest in the westbound lane in the
upright position.

Students preparing for FCAT


Schools helping prep for


state standardized test


by LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor

Gadsden County schools are
gearing up for February's
Florida Writes portion of the
Florida Comprehensive
Assessment Test.
Although the school district's
official FCAT Readiness kickoff
is Jan. 16, most county schools
have been making preparations
,for the state standardized test
since the beginning of the
school year.
St. John Elementary is one of
:the schools that's worked year-
ong on prepping third- through
,fifth-graders for the FCAT. The
'Florida Writes portion of the test
.begins Feb. 5.
r "We're having what we're call-
,ing a Writing Boot Camp," said
eSt. John's Principal Ida Walker.
r"We put on plays this week the
play was, 'Strong Verb vs. Weak
NVerb.' We're also doing one
called 'Simile City.'"
Using plays and crafts and arts
*kinds of activities helps students
,retain some of the concepts they
;need to know for the test,
,Walker said, and is also enjoy-


able for them.
"It takes with them. It sticks
with them," she said. "They get
the chance to make something -
since it's a boot camp, they are
making camoflauge-decorated
shoeboxes and everything they
learn and write down or create,
they can keep in this box."
Students have written monthly
essays on their feelings and per-
ceptions about the FCAT.
"I am ready for the FCAT, but
this doesn't mean that I'm going
to stop trying to learn everything
that I need in order to not just
pass, but be one of the best,"
wrote fourth-grader ReNajah
Williams, in November.
D'Asia Warner shared some of
her qualms about the FCAT, giv-
ing an astute illustration of the
struggle some of us undergo
when faced with word prob-
lems.
"... I feel sometimes that I can
do it and sometimes I can't. But
most of the time I can't. Like, for
example, Peter has 2 gallons of
milk. He buys two more gallons
of milk. 'P' represents how much
milk Peter has. How will you
find out how many pints he has?


Explain. That's where the diffi-
culty comes in."
Even so, D'Asia says she feels
confident about taking the
FCAT.
"...I do think I'm ready for the
FCAT. I think so because I real-
ly want to go to the next grade.
But I have to get my things
together if I want to pass. I have
to get this stuff down packed
(sic). I might pass, but I have to
have confidence in myself. I
don't want to retain myself so I
just have to try."
In some of the January essays,
some of the stress of facing the
impending FCAT starts to show,
but not without a flicker of
humor to help cope with the
pressure.
Writes Denisha Walker, "The
FCAT is less than two months
away. How do I feel about the
test? Hmm, let's see. Stressed. I
have to listen, learn and study
every little detail. Worried. I
might skip a question or don't
complete the test or rush and get
the wrong answer on something
that I truly know. Relaxed.
Why? I know for a fact that
working to be an "A" student
has paid off. Now I have the
basic fundamentals."
Later in her essay, Denisha
notes,, "So much to study, so lit-
fte time."
The boot camp is solely for the


Mini-series on land use



,and purchase set for Feb.


The size, nature and the rea-
'sons for owning land is chang-
,ing.
These changing patterns of
,ownership are nation-wide and
are very evident in the southeast
-S. atrd are'pecially true'here
rin north Florida.
t The days of the large timber
companies owning huge tracts
'for timber production or the
,large plantations/farms planted
,to pines are no longer the norm.
r With these changes in size
r.and nature of holdings comes a
'change in the basic reasons why
people buy and hold land today.
tIn many cases the land is no
longer held for crop production
ror as a source of income. For
,these and other reasons, how
this land bases will be passed to
the next generation and beyond
,has raised many questions and
,concerns.
To help answer some of these
,questions and concerns the
,University of Florida
rCooperative Extension Service,
rthe Florida Division of Forestry,
,and the Florida Forestry
tAssociation are sponsoring this
year's Master Tree Farmers
pmini-series, "Preparing for the

Havana vocational ed program starts up


by LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor

Havana will have its own
vocational education program
by the end of the month.-
The program, open to all area
residents, will offer a variety of


vocational classes in the
evenings at Havana Middle
School. Registration begins
Jan. 17.
"Our objective is to increase
the knowledge of our youth and
adults in a positive social and
educational learning environ-


ment and at the same time
empower our disadvantaged so
that they will have a new vision
of hope for the future, breaking
the cycle of not completing a
task, life goals, getting good
jobs, etc.," said Lillian Johnson,
director of the Havana
Community Technology and
Learning Center and a driving
force behind the new vocation-
al program in Havana. "We
hope these skills will encourage
one to become more responsi-
ble and self-sufficient care-
givdrs for their families. I often
tell youth and adults, yesterday
is gone, tomorrow has yet to
come, we have only today, let it
begin."
The program is a collaborative
effort between the Havana
Community Technology and
Learning Center, Inc.,
Tallahassee Community
College and Workforce Plus
Inc.
"This is kind of a pilot pro-
gram, to see how we do," said
Rick Frazier, director of corpo-
rate services, economic devel-
opment and special projects for
TCC.
Classes and training will be


from 6-10 p.m. four days per
week. TCC will send instruc-
tors to teach a variety of cours-
es designed to help area resi-
dents secure job stability under
the directions of Frazier, TCC's
Irvine Leonard and Kim
Moore, chief executive officer
with Workforce Plus.
"We have been trying to get
this started for over a year, and
starting Jan. 7, we were up and
running," Johnson said. "Dr.
Verna Norris and staff at
Havana Middle School, along
with Gadsden County
Superintendent of Schools
Reginald James, see the pro-
gram as a complement to the
technical institute. Schools are
for the community, and now we
have our own in our communi-
ty.
"But in order to keep it, we
need community financial sup-
port."
Havana Community
Technology and Learning
Center, Inc. are looking for
sponsors to help with expand-
ing our vocational program to
adding courses teaching skills
in mechanical work, cosmetol-
ogy, barbering, plumbing and

Midway avoids lawsuit by denying developer


by LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor

Midway City Council mem-
bers avoided a lawsuit last week
by voting to deny the developer
of Taylor Ridge subdivision the
approval he needed to proceed
with the project.
After developer Dustin
Koonce's attorney filed a peti-
tion asking a judge to force the
city council to either approve or
disapprove a preliminary plat
for Taylor Ridge, Gadsden
County Second Judicial Circuit
Court Judge George Reynolds
III ordered City Council Nov.
29 to resolve the matter fast.


During an October City
Council meeting, a" motion
made to approve the plat died
for lack of a second.
"I would take the position for
the city that, in my opinion, it
was denied at that meeting,"
City Attorney John Williams
said.
Judge Reynolds gave City
Council two options: Either
hold a public hearing by Jan. 10
and vote to approve or deny the
plat or appear in court Jan. 3
and show cause why the council
had not given a final decision to
approve or deny the plat.
Council members voted
unanimously Jan. 4 to deny the


preliminary plat.
In other business last
Thursday, council members
voted to approve adding a coun-
cil member pay increase to the
April ballot.
They voted on increasing
their pay from $200 per month
plus $200 for travel expenses to
$450 per month, an increase of
$50.
Under the proposal, the
mayor's pay would increase by
$50 monthly to $550 per month.
It was an hour into the meet-
ing before the council could
come to an agreement on
approving the evening's agenda,
and by 11:30 p.m., they were


still wading through he old
business portion of it. I
The council voted unani-
mously to approve an ordinance
governing maintenance of
vacant lots and unanimously
approved an ordinance asking
for additional law enforcement
services through the Sheriffs
Office. Currently, two Gadsden
County Sheriffs deputies patrol
Midway as part of an agreement
between the city and the GCSO.
When the agreement is final-
ized, three deputies will provide
law enforcement services to
Midway.
Council member Ella Barber
brought up an item she had


asked to put on the agenda: a
review and discussion of the
city manager's resume, contract
and evaluations; but she was the
only' council member to broach
the issue and the meeting
moved on.
In new business, the council
approved amendments to the
city's small-scale land use
amendment on first reading.
The amendments approved
would permit 20 acres of land
owned by Lex Thompson to be
changed from agricultural to
residential, 20 acres of land
owned by James Thompson to
be changed from agricultural to
residential, 20 acres of land

Rauschenberg, Turkle, Doddridge at GAC Jan. 12 March 3


Suzanne Edwards
Doddridge: "From Marsh to
Mountain," an exhibition of
watercolors and pastels will be
presented in our Bates
Community Gallery.
Suzanne Edwards
Doddridge attended Quincy
High School and the University
of Florida where she began tak-
ing formal art instruction. She
presently :lives in Asheville,
North Carolina. Suzanne paints
landscapes, still lifes, and peo-
ple in a beautiful, spirit-filled,
and evocative way. Her paint-
ings reflect the beauty of cre-
ation.
Robert Rauschenberg was
born October 22, 1925 in Port
Arthur, Texas. He studied at the
Kansas City Art Institute, the
Academic Julian in'Paris. In
1948, he enrolled at the leg-
endary Black Mountain
College in North Carolina. He
lives and works in Captiva,
Florida. He is, perhaps,
America's most well-known,
living artist.
Rauschenberg is often quot-
ed saying he wants to work "in
the gap between art and life."
Rauschenberg's photographs
form the basis of much of his
work and are used in his paint-
ings, "combines," and prints.
For Robert Rauschenberg,
meaning is created and con-
veyed through images that rep-
resent the "truth" of reality.
STyler Turkle was born May
29, 1947. He received his BA in
History (1970) from Mount
Union College in Alliance,
Ohio and studied
Cinematography at Kent State
University. From 1975 to 1987,
he taught art, photography and
filmmaking at Florida State


University as a visiting lecturer,
assistant professor and artist-in-
residence. His films have
appeared in national and inter-
national film festivals while his
paintings and sculptures have
been widely exhibited in muse-
ums and galleries throughout
the United States and Europe.
Turkle was selected for the
41st and 44th Biennial
Exhibitions of Contemporary
American Painting at the
Corcoran Gallery of Art,
Washington, DC, as well as
exhibitions at the San Francisco
Museum of Art, San Francisco,
California; Stedelijk Museum,
Amsterdam, the Netherlands;
the Ringling Museum of Art,
Sarasota, Florida; the Fort
Worth Museum of Art, Fort
Worth, Texas; the Rooseum,
Malmo, Sweden; and the New
Orleans Museum of Art, New
Orleans, Louisiana.

PUBLIC
NOTICE

The Board of
County
Commissioners
will hold a Special
Meeting/Workshop
on January 16,
2007, starting at
6:00 p.m.
Agendaed items are
as follows:
Affordable Housing
Update
Other Items as
Necessary.
1/11/07c


"Tyler Turkle lives and
works in Tallahassee, Florida.
One might expect that he would
offer a regional or isolationist
perspective.
To the contrary, Turkle
maintains a network of global
connections and is critically
engaged with challenging some
of our most comfortable 'mod-
ernist' expectations as he
reassesses the very practice of
making art.
He is an outsider of sorts, a
renegade who goes beyond a
simplistic, cynical, anti-aesthet-
ic position of the post-mod-
ernist by rethinking and rein-
venting the technique, materials
and the formal grammar of


painting.
Turkle employs a misan-
ttl'opic wit that reverses the
viewer's perception, experience
and relationship to the paint-
ing/object and offers alterna-
tives to modernist utopian val-
ues.
Some antecedents for this
approach might be traced to the
subversive action in the early
'60s by Rauschenberg when he
asked deKooning for a drawing
he could erase or to the target
paintings of Jasper Johns that
required a reconsideration of
the structural language of art
and the concept of representa-
tion." [Margaret Miller]

GATORS GET IT

Or maybe better said. Ohio


got it. Got a good whipping from a
Florida team that was well prepared
State for everything except the opening


kick-off.
After that opening play Florida
controlled every aspect of the champi-
onship game Monday night.
Chris Leak had a great going away
party and the Gator offensive and
defensive lines proved to be much the
better of the match ups.
Florida's receivers and secondary
also had a feel good night.
To be honest though, if someone
had said the final score would be 41-
14 Monday morning most everybody
would have thought it would be a long
night for Florida.
What's next? The Gators will lose
quite a few players off this leam, but a
lot of talent remains.
Still with another tough schedule
next year Florida could lose three to
five games.
Right now though it looks like
Urban Myer has things going and


Florida should hate a great recruiting
year. Florida ma\ well get in that not
re-building but re-loading mode that
great programs have.

SEC, STATE, AND
BOWL PICKINGS

The Big East won the bowls best
record with a 4-0 mark in bowl games.
But surely everyone knows the SEC
was the nations best conference.
Florida is the nations best team, LSLI
was number three and in all 6 teams
finished in the top 25.
The conference was 6-3 in bowl
games and could have easily been 9-0.
Arkansas, Alabama. and Tennessee
could all have won their games. EBen
though the Big East was 4-0 they did-
n't play near as tough a bowl schedule
as the SEC teams did.
Also no state could match the state
of Florida record in bowls. Florida.


FSL, Miami. and South Florida all
\\on their games to give the top col-
lege football state a 4-0 mark.
I ended my bowl pickings with a
23-9 record which again wouldn't win
any pools but it is one of my better

Jaguars bounce back after tough Arnold loss


East Gadsden hosted Arnold
in a district basketball game
Friday night and lost to the
Marlins 49-41 in a contest that
saw the Panama City Beach
team control the tempo of the
contest.
The Jaguars helped matters


with 23 turnovers and 11 missed
free throws.
"We certainly didn't play
very well." Said Jaguar coach
Demetric Salters. "But I'm not
going to take anything from
Arnold, they were ready to play
and they took advantage of our


mistakes." Arnold got 12 points
from Mark Troncale and 11
from Tyler Schwah. Schwah
also was a pain in the side with
his ball handling and overall
floor play. Darius Jackson led
the East Gadsden scoring with
14 points.


The Jaguars bounced back
with a win Tuesday night
thumping Wakulla 82-25. "We
got a chance to play a lot of
players in the game." Salters
said.
"We've got to get back on
track, so I'm looking at some


different line-ups.'
15 players scored in the
Wakulla game with Vincent
Grice's 18 leading the way.
Sam McLaurin scored 10 and
had 10 rebounds.
East Gadsden has a busy
schedule coming up. They host

The West Gadsden boy's
basketball team hit the winning
mark with a pair of victories
last week to put their record at

MLK Day is for all


You can't force people to do anything.
Well, maybe you can, but you're not going
to get the end product that you're after.
So, where am I headed with this?
Several years ago I attended a meeting
of business and professional people. It was
a representative group of both black and
whites. At the end of the meeting the
facilitator asked if anyone would like to
make an announcement that was general in
nature. Several people announced
upcoming events in the community and
urged folks to attend.
I decided I would announce several
events surrounding the observance of Dr.
Martin Luther King, Jr.'s birthday. My
announcement was greeted with smiles
and the affirmative nodding of heads.
After the meeting, several whites came up
to me to say that the events I announced
sounded wonderful, but that they would
not be able to attend. As one of them
walked off, she said: "ya'll have a nice
holiday."
Before that statement, I didn't see it as a
holiday for blacks and I still don't view it


that way. Dr. King, while he was a black
man, worked for the equal treatment of all
people. It just so happened that during his
lifetime, the treatment of blacks in this
country needed immediate attention.
Of course, some people still don't know
what all the "fuss" was about because they
could go anyplace they wanted and do
anything they wanted if they had the
money.
There are several events planned this
weekend. A community day is Saturday
from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Corry Field.
Sunday, from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m., there will
be a candlelight vigil at the courthouse and
Monday from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m. a Unity
Breakfast will be held at the Ferolito'
Recreation Center. There is no charge.
All three events and others like them in
communities throughout the county (see
the Jan. 4 issue for a complete listing) are
intended to bring people together.
If you think the MLK, Jr. observance is
a holiday only for black people, you're
selling yourself short and doing yourself a
great disservice.


I need to offer an apology this morning.
Gerald R. Ford was a much better president
than I had given him credit for. I listened
attentively this past week as current and
former presidents, vice presidents, various
house and senate leaders, Henry Kissinger,
boy scouts and old, worn out news anchors all
rose to pay homage to him.
They spoke of his gentle demeanor; the
small town accruements he brought to
Washington; his unpretentious nature; his
love for this nation that rose above partisan
politics; the simple and direct way he went
about the presidency.
More than one of the aforementioned
eulogizers remembered how he brought
healing and togetherness in the wake of
Watergate, Vietnam and the whisperings,
accusations and innuendoes swirling around
the resignation of then President Nixon.
The more I listened the higher Mr. Ford
moved up on the presidential list. By the time
he was laid to rest on his beloved Michigan
hillside I figured he ranked somewhere up
there along side George Washington, Thomas
Jefferson and Abraham Lincoln!
I was alive and kicking back during those
"tumultuous" years in the early '70's. And I
remember the war in Vietnam winding down,
you couldn't miss the Watergate deal-it was
on everybody's lips, I hoped that I wasn't
mentioned on that 18 minutes of missing tape
and I was watching on T. V. when Nixon
assured the world that he "was not a crook.",
But to tell you the truth, I was so busy
getting married, trying to figure out how I was
going to pay for a house and worrying over
the demise of the St. Louis Cardinals that I
didn't pay much attention. The birth of my
first son was far more important to me than
the shifting occupants of the White House. I
just barely recall Spiro Agnew resigning. And
I have no clue why he quit. I reckoned it was
income tax evasion-that was always a safe
bet.
I don't think I'd ever heard of Gerald Ford
when Nixon tabbed him to replace Agnew.
And I know for sure it didn't matter to me.
They've got this thing set up so the vice-
president can't do no real harm. If he wasn't
going to make a house payment for me,
change a diaper or help me dry them dishes he
wasn't going to get my attention.
I figured he wouldn't last long. I didn't
know nothing about politics but even the most
casual observer understood that Nixon's goose
was cooked by late fall of 1973. Jumping into
the vice-presidency at that moment was like
swimming out to the Titanic the day after it
sailed.
I don't recall any waves of patriotism
sweeping over the nation when Gerald R.
Ford was sworn in as our 38th President. I
don't remember any rallying speeches. I don't
recall a jump in the stock market or a sudden
drop in inflation. Dan Rather was not trotting
out before us on CBS nightly and claiming we
had the right man for the job. To be honest,
most everybody was still focused on Nixon
and whether or not he would go to prison.
There was some talk (more than just a
little) that we had a man in the White House


that had never been voted on by the national
electorate. Some went so far to suggest that
we have a special election so we could "have
a voice" in who held the reins. Comparisons
were made to John Tyler and Andrew
Johnson, two vice-presidents that ascended to
the throne with little notion as to what they
were doing, "but at least they had been elected
by the whole country!"
Our new president was caught on camera
stumbling down some steps. We now had an
"un-voted" on guy who was clumsy in the
Oval Office. Folks, again, I was just a casual
observer but the red carpet definitely wasn't
rolled out for Mr. Ford in 1974. And then he
hit an errant tee shot on the golf course and
struck a spectator. You'd a'thought he had
insulted the Russians or beat up the Pope.....
I'd never seen such uproar over one wayward
golf shot. Well, ok, maybe it was two or
three ...
No one seemed interested in the facts at the
time. If it had gotten down to a vote between
Ford or somebody named Spiro, I'd have
taken Ford every time. He was a former All-
American football player at the University of
Michigan. He was probably the least clumsy
of all our presidents. And people who run
down the side of the fairway to gawk at non
professional golfers deserve to get hit!
I liked football players. I pulled for the
underdog. And listen, no one hits golf shots as
bad as I do. This Ford guy could be all right.
Let's back off and give him a chance....
Then he granted a presidential pardon to
* Nixon! You should have heard the outcry! He
united the country in its stand AGAINST
letting Nixon off the hook! He was vilified
from Bangor, Maine, to Astoria, Oregon.
Bold headlines decried conspiracy. Word
quickly spread that Nixon picked Ford just to
deliver the official reprieve. The truth didn't
matter. Our minds were made up....
He couldn't even muster enough support to.
beat Jimmy Carter in'76.
"Pardon" me if I looked on at the outpouring
of love and respect shown President Ford this
week with a little amusement. I don't
remember any of it back in the "turbulent
times" when this country was divided over
Vietnam, Watergate, cover-ups and deep-
throats. I don't think Mr. Ford heard any of it
either.
Maybe he was the right man for the times. It
just took us three decades to jump on the
bandwagon. An amazing thought ran across
my mind as speaker after speaker offered up
their eulogies. Our nation is more divided
right now than it has ever been! We squabble
to the point of detestation over the fighting in
Iraq, partisan politics, pork barrel spending,
Fox News vs. CNN, women in the clergy, the
predicament of illegal.immigrants swelling
our towns.....
Looks like we'd be a lot better off if our
leaders would quit waxing on so eloquently
about the kindness and goodness and healing
abilities of Gerald R. Ford.....and started
living like him!
Respectfully,
Kes

Sometimes it seems like


it's an impossible dream


I remember the day Dr. Martin
Luther King Jr. was killed.
The TV was on most evenings, and
that night, my parents and I watched
in horror the black and white images
of the death of a courageous minister
and an incomparable man.
I was a toddler, and my mother
was anticipating the birth of my
brother, who arrived some 18 days
later.
But that night, we all watched a
good man go down under a hail of
hateful, furious ignorance.
Often enough during my youth, the
songs of his friend Mahalia Jackson
filled our house with their rich blend
of silken and wool sound. They
streamed from the console stereo in
the living room, a turntable delivering
needle-etched ecstasy to our ears:
"Trouble of the World," "Go Tell it
On the Mountain," "Joshua Fit the
Battle of Jericho."
In fact, it was at Mahalia Jackson's
urging that Dr. King delivered his "I
Have A Dream" speech in 1963 at a
,rally near the Lincoln Memorial in
Washington, D.C. (Pertinent note: I
had not, of course, been born in 1963,
but I did later in life see footage of
the speech. Much, much later.) I've
read he had planned to give a short
speech calling for jobs and freedom
for African Americans. According to
the website usinfo.state.gov, as he
was getting ready to sit down,
Jackson called out, "Tell them about
your dream, Martin! Tell them about
the dream!"
So he did.
It was a history-making moment,
often cited as his most powerful
epilogue, but sometimes I wonder
whether we have forgotten exactly
what his dream was.
He freed many white men and
women as well as black men and
women from the kinds of sick
thinking that led to damaging belief
systems which gave one race
advantages over another based solely
on skin color. I have to believe he
wanted people of all races to be free
of bigotry and hatred.
"But there is something that I must
say to my people who stand on the
warm threshold which leads into the
palace of justice. In the process of
gaining our rightful place we must
not be guilty of wrongful deeds. Let
us not seek to satisfy our thirst for
freedom by drinking from the cup of
bitterness and hatred. We must
forever conduct our struggle on the
high plane of dignity and discipline.
We must not allow our creative


protest to degenerate into physical
violence. Again and again we must
rise to the majestic heights of meeting
physical force with soul force. The
marvelous new militancy which has
engulfed the Negro community must
not lead us to a distrust of all white
people, for many of our white
others, as evidenced by their
presence here today, have come to
realize that their destiny is tied up
with our destiny. And they have come
to realize that their freedom is
inextricably bound to our freedom.
We cannot walk alone," he said in
one excerpt from that speech.
"I have a dream that one day this
nation will rise up and live out the
true meaning of its creed: 'We hold
these truths to be self-evident, that all
men are created equal,'" he said in
another portion of his speech.
"I have a dream that one day on the
red hills of Georgia the sons of
former slaves and the sons of former
,slave owners will be able to sit down
together at the table of brotherhood.
"I have a dream that one day even
the state of Mississippi, a state
sweltering with the heat of injustice,
sweltering with the heat of
oppression, will be transformed into
an oasis of freedom and justice.
"I have a dream that my four little
children will one day live in a nation
where they will not be judged by the
color of their skin but by the content
of their character.
"I have a dream today.
"I have a dream that one day down
in Alabama, with its vicious racists,
with its governor having his lips
dripping with the words of
interposition and nullification one
day right there in Alabama little black
boys and black girls will be able to
join hands with little white boys and
white girls as sisters and brothers."
I wish there was room to reprint his
entire speech here; it was
magnificent, moving and truthful.
When a white person addressing
one of the local City Councils last
week used a quote from Dr. King
during the course of that address and
was subsequently booed by several
African-American audience
members, one of whom told him,
fiercely, "You don't know Martin
Luther King he had a dream," I
wondered when.such a beautiful,
bounteous dream turned into a tool of
attack.
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. did
have a dream that's a fact. It's one
people of many races share.
Even a number of us white ones.

Living
L-g
the legacy


of MLK

It was late August, 1963. I was
12. I remember my father calling
me into his room. The radio was
on, and I heard cheering. It was
not a baseball game kind of
cheer.....it seemed louder and
longer. It was a sustained roar.
My dad, aged 72 and blind,
pointed in the direction of the
radio with one hand, and put his
other index finger to his lips....he
was telling me to be quiet....and
to listen.
Next I heard the voice. A
combination of speech and
singing. The cadence was like
none I ever heard. The word
music rose and fell, the power
was like a wave....swelling and
then resting, soon to rise again.
My father's blind eyes were
shining in the window light. He
was tearful, his lips pursed, his
head gently nodding in
agreement. Seeing him so moved
gave me the sense that history
was being made.
There in that sun-bathed room,
I heard the sound of that voice,
and felt the power of its
persuasion. I never saw my
father so attentive. All of his
energy focused on listening to
the words. He slowly nodded to
their cadence.
"I have a dream that one day
my four little children will live in
a nation where they will not be
judged by the color of their skin,
but by the content of their
character.
The Rev. Martin Luther King,
Jr.'s I Have a Dream speech
commanded the attention of not
only the half-million who
gathered in the shadow of
Abraham Lincoln's statue on the
Washington Mall, but touched
the hearts and minds of a nation
to pay attention and take action..
That speech on that sweltering
August day ignited a charge of
energy that would not be
stopped.....not by gushing fire
hoses, snarling dogs, enraged
threats, bombs or snipers' bullets.
At the tender age of 35, that
eloquent preacher from Atlanta
set in motion a flood of
individual and collective actions
which would change how people,
viewed not, only our neighbors,
but ourselves. The impact of that
leader's courage was felt in that *
tumultuous decade of the 1960's,,
and for generations to come.
The ideals of Dr. King's
mission were rooted in his
Christian faith; his operating
principles and civil disobedience:
techniques were borrowed from
Gandhi. But no matter what out
faith, race, ethnicity, gender or
age, the heroic vision of Dr.
King.is a beacon for us all.
In the eleven-year period
between 1957 and 1968, King
traveled over six million miles
and spoke over twenty-five
hundred times, appearing
wherever there was injustice to
be protested, and action to be
taken. Martin Luther King, Jr.,
was the youngest man to.have
received the Nobel Peace Prize.
Though his life was cut short at
age 39 by an assassin's bullet in
April, 1968, his legacy lives in
anyone who chooses to question
those who would hold us captive
to old ideas and discriminatory
policies.
Has all that Dr. King
envisioned come to pass? Not
yet.
Has his legacy brought forth a
tremendous surge of change in
attitude, law, and economic
opportunity? Yes. But there's so
much still to be accomplished.
Justice is not static...it's active,
and must be actively asserted and
strictly guarded every day.
I trust that all advocates


understand that progress is not
achieved by intention alone.
Strategic advocacy is the only
way wrongs can be righted and
ideas can be transformed into
action.

East Gadsden girls rout Wakulla; WGHS also wins big


Sby Susie Morris

East Gadsden disposed of
Wakulla in quick fashion win-
ning by an even fifty points 70-
21 Monday night. Ten Jaguar
players scored on their way to the
district win. The team was led
offensively by Chelsea
McMillan's twenty point per-
formance. She also had 12
rebounds, four steals and blocked
i:ve shots. Three players had ten
points Niara Randolph, Audrey
Pnanka and Sharonda Elias.


Tracie Lewis had a dozen
rebounds and Jasmine Grice
dished out ten assists.
The team participated last
weekend at the City of Rivers
tournament in Jacksonville. The
team lost both games but gained
a world of experience, They
were also playing without starter
Dytesha Francis. Coach Tim
Brown and his troops fell to
Jacksonville Sandalwood 55-54
and Jacksonville Wolfson 60-54.
The team moved to 15-4 overall
and remained undefeated in


SBefore I git to Ramlin & forget, congrats go out

couple could tell you some history of Miller Co.
i The Deer Hunters have scored big this week.
thvo 12 point Bucks and two 8 point Bucks in one
ply. I should have mentioned that I 97 took 3 on
tle bottom end this week.
SBass Fishen continues to be slow for the most

record, but it's a shur nuff good average.
p After the heavy rain this past weekend, the Creeks
kpt so muddy Wood Ducks couldn't swim in them,
ley had to git out on the bank and walk to where
they were going.
New Years Day I was on the road to see Raymond

night. Battles blistered the nets

The team moved to 6-7 on the
season with that win and raised
their record to 7-7 with a 53-50
win over Wewahitchka Tuesday
night. Battles had 21 points in
that game and Kayla Streeter hit
11.
The Munroe Lady Cats
split last week, losing a district


game and winning a non-district
game. The Lady Cats, who had
previously beaten John Paul II
twice by more than twenty points
each time, proved the adage its
hard to beat any team three times.
John Paul II, a Class A District 3
opponent, took the poor shooting
Munroe team into overtime and
finally won 32-26. Crystal
Wade led Munroe with 9 points.


Wade turned the scoring on the
next night, however, and scored
23 as she led her team to a con-
vincing 57-17 win over
Maranatha Christian. The Lady
Cats jumped out to a 19-7 first
quarter lead and led 40-15 at the
half.
Malorie McKinnon added
ten points for the 6-10 Munroe

; the city manager, according to
Jackson.
', Jackson said he could live
with Godbey's counter proposal
because she could bring grant
dollars into the city. However,
(larence Tennell, who is a mem-
ber of the advisory board, said he
had a problem with the Godbey's
offer.
S"After we talked to Mrs.
Godbey and told her we would
take the second candidate that's
When she changed her mind.
That's an integrity problem. To
me, it's someone not being truth-


ful," Tennell said.
LaVerne Demous, another
member of the advisory board,
agreed with Tennell. She said she
didn't approve of Godbey's
attempt to use grants to bring her
salary up to $70,000 annually.
Commissioner Andy Gay also
said Godbey's integrity raised a
red flag. "I want someone who
really wants this job. She has a
very impressive resume, but
sometimes you have to look past
that. I feel she does not have the
best interest of the city at heart,"
Gay said.


"My position is that we stick
to the original process," said
Commissioner Derrick Elias.
That process was to offer the job
to the top candidate and if no
agreement could be reached,
offer the position to number two,
and if that didn't work, offer the
position to the third choice, Bob
Trescott.
Jackson will begin negotia-
tions with Hayes in a few weeks.
The manager's position has been
vacant since former manager,
Marsha Harpoole, resigned in
April.

The boss rides the bus


Gadsden

County

school

chief rides

along with

students

by LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor

It- was 4:45 a.m. on a
Thursday when Gadsden
County Schools Superintendent
Reginald James' alarm went
off.
That day, he readied to serve
a role most superintendents
don't that of a school bus
aide.
He says the experience
reaffirmed his commitment to
education.
"You'll get a different
perspective it really kind of
touches you," he said. "It's six
o'clock, it's dark, and at every
stop children are anxiously
waiting to go to school."
James said he was touched by
the sight of parents standing
alongside their children,
waiting for the bus to arrive.


"Parents are sending us the
very best they have' and they
want the best," he said. "You'll
see mothers, grandmothers it
has. to touch you because what
it says to you is if you cannot
approach your job with passion
there's a problem, because you
have the future in your hands.
We need to give them the best
we have."
The Gadsden County Scho61
District runs 78 buses per day,
carrying 6,000 students, 78
drivers and 15 bus aides.
"It's a massive operation,"
James said.
Route distances vary; most
take two hours and 15 minutes
to complete, Transportation
Director Joe Lewis said.
"We have a couple of unique
ones some leave at 5:30 a.m.
and go as far as Chattahoochee
to the Apalachicola River and
to the Ochlockonee River in
Coon Bottom," Lewis said.
"We have to canvass those
areas because we have to get
them to school by 8 o'clock. On
a normal day, it takes a driver
about 20 minutes to leave the
bus garage and get to the stop
and then about 45-50 minutes
to make the return route."
Like most county school
buses, the bus James rode runs
two routes, picking up middle
school and high school students
first and then elementary
school students.
James said children on the


bus were "very respectful", and
he carried on conversations
with several of them.
"It touches your soul (pre-K
and young elementary
students) have these little red
backpacks on and we have
little baby seats for them to sit
on," James said. "One young
girl got on the bus and wouldn't
move forward the bus driver
said, 'You're sitting in her seat.'
I thought it was cute they sit
in the same seat every day and
she stopped as if to say, you
know, 'Get up off my seat.'"
James said he's enjoyed
serving in several roles as


superintendent, but the bus trip
was ,one of his favorite
experiences.
"It does something for me as
a superintendent. It reconfirms
how important it is it is an
important job we do," he said.
"The parents, regardless of
their situation, want the best for
their children ... some of them
come from real modest
surroundings, but they're out
there in the mornings with their
children. It helps remind you
that When you're-in education,
you've got to know that you've
got to give them everything
you have."

Bus aides, Lewis said, serve
mainly on buses that are filled
to capacity and function as an
extra set of eyes and ears for
the driver.
"They help ensure we are
delivering our precious cargo
as safely as possible," Lewis
said.
"They are committed
professionals who try to do the
best they can do every day.
Drivers are the first school
district representatives children
see in the morning and the last
school district representatives
they see of the day. They try to
make a good impression."

, ,-^ ;' T .
Martin Luther King, Jr. was born in Atlanta. Georgia on January 15th, 1929. Mr. King was the son of Reverend Martin Luther King,

S -' ... DexterAvenue Baptist Church in Montgomery. Alabama in 1953. He and his wife, Coretta Scott King, had four children. King began
..( .'his non-violent civil nghts activism in 1955 when he led the Monlgomery Bus Boycott, which began when Mrs. Rosa Parks refused to
... give her bus seat to a white.man. He was also the leader of the famous March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom in 1963,:where
S: he gave his infamous Have a Dream speech. Dr. King is also well known for his famous written works, such as his "Letter from
;.. :. Birmingham Jail", written in 1963, after he was arrested at a non-violent protest.

FIGHTING

AN INVISIBLE

ENEMY

He was born two days after Christmas in the small
town of Dole, France. His.father, a leather tanner,
dreamed of-his son growing up and becoming a
professor at the college in the nearby town of
Arbois, As a child however, the son displayed a
greater interest in fishing and drawing than aca-
demics. When, in the later grades, science became
part of the school curriculum, the young man
showed a much greater interest in his studies. At
the age of sixteen, he enrolled at the university in
Besancon, where he received Bachelor's degrees in
literature and mathematics before his twenrieth
birthday


His degrees qualified him to achieve his father's
dream. His teachers however, believed he had
greater potential and encouraged him to continue
his studies atthe nationally renowned Ecole Normale
Superieure in Paris. So it wasthat in 1843, twenty-
year-old Louis Pasteur arrived in Paris to study sci-
ence. Within four years, he received his doctorate and
began teaching in Dijon and Strasbourg.

When Louis graduated from university,
scientists still believed in a centuries old
theory called "spontaneous generation"
which stated that living organisms could
emerge from non-living matter. For
example, meat left in the open air would
eventually be covered with maggots.
Where did the maggots come from?
Until disproved in the seventeenth cen-
tury, scientists had believed they came
from the meat, although how meat cre-
ated maggots was unknown Pjseur in h;sla
Even though the mag- Through the M
Wissenschaf


. got from meat exam-
S pie was disproved,
most scientists continued to
believe "spontaneous genera-
S tion" applied in some situations.


In 1859, the French Academy of
Science sponsored a contest.
Scientists were invited to devise
an experiment that would
either prove, or disprove, "spon-
taneous generation." Taking up
the challenge, Pasteur designed
an elegantly simple experiment.
As it had been proven that boil-
ing a liquid killed existing
microorganisms, Pasteur first
created a pure liquid by boiling
meat broth in a flask. He then


bo


heated the flask's neck, bending it an'S"shape, much
like a swan's neck.

To enter the flask, air needed to pass through the
curved neck. If it included any particles or organ-
isms, they would be caught either on the entryway's
damp sides, or settle at the bottom of the "S." Sure
enough, nothing grew inside the flask
To eliminate any lingering possibility
that bacteria causing particles were not
airborne, he tilted the flask so that some
of the broth settled in the lower part of
the neck. There, the clear broth turned
cloudy with organisms, proving that only
the air could have carried them into the
"S." From among all those experiments
submitted by scientists across France,
the academy selected Pasteur's as the
only one to conclusively show that
"spontaneous generation" could not
raiory occur.

For the rest of his life, Pasteur seemed to
float from one towering achievement to
another. Among his multitude of accomplishments
was the development of the germ theory of disease,
which postulated that airborne bacteria called
germs could cause disease. He then proved his the.
ory, allowing scientists to focus on preventing and
curing disease by killing the bacteria causing germs.
He also eliminated anthrax in sheep across France,
and then used his understanding of anthrax to
develop a rabies vaccine. His body of work led him to
be regarded as one of the greatest scientists in
human history.

Irimuch of the English-speaking world, although not
the United States, the day after Christmas is a holiday
called Boxing Day. No, it isn't a day for fighting. Its
origins are somewhat obscure, but it may have its
origins during the Middle Ages, when Britons with
servants gave them gift boxes on the day after
Christmas, as servants worked on Christmas Day.

Havana Middle School honors top teachers


Ms. Paris
is honored to
represent
Havana
Middle
School as
Teacher of
the Year. She
states that she
was destined
to be involved in services to chil-
dren and finds fulfillment in her
work. She began her elementary
education in the public schools of
Miami, Florida and completed
fifth grade in Quitman, Georgia
before her family relocated to
Quincy during the shade tobacco
era. Her parents instilled strong
spiritual and moral values, high
self-esteem, good work ethics,
and>a high regard for education
as a means to a better way of life.
As the eldest daughter, second
oldest child born to Robert
(deceased) and Eddie Lee Paris
among twelve children; eight
daughters and four sons. Her par-
ents encouraged and expected
excellent conduct and academic
performance of all their children
and expected the older of the chil-
dren to set positive examples for
the younger. She states this is
when she first developed her
desire to work with children and
adolescents.
Ms. Paris graduated from
Carter-Parramore High School
and went on to receive both her
B.S. and M.S. in Psychology at
Florida A & M University, gradu-
ating Magna Cum Laude. With a
continuing interest in the study of
human behavior and motivation,
Ms. Paris later attended the
University of Georgia in Athens,
and completed a Post-Graduate
Research Fellowship in
Behavioral Psychology.
Ms. Paris is a Behavior
Specialist and has been employed
with HMS as the In-School
Suspension Teacher since
January 2005. In past years, Ms.
Paris served as the Program
Coordinator for the TRIAAD
Program (drug education and
awareness) also at Havana Middle
School. Her extensive experience
in behavioral modification gained
her employment at Florida State
Hospital as a Behavioral Program
Supervisor and as a School-Based
Behavior Specialist with
Apalachee Center for Human
Services for several years before
her employment with juvenile
delinquency.
Ms. Paris' delinquency experi-
ence spans several years of


employment with the Department
of Juvenile Justice. She was a
Juvenile Probation Officer for one
year, promoted to Senior Juvenile
SProbation Officer for four years,
acted as Interim Juvenile Justice
Supervisor for two years, and was
the Gadsden/Liberty Case
Manager with Gator Human
Services for two years (a Leon
County based case-management
program which provided aftercare
continuity services to juveniles
returning from commitment pro-
grams).
Ms. Paris shares that she
enjoys her work with adolescents;
motivating them to be their best,
inspiring their achievement and
helping them to find ways of
interacting which promotes posi-
tive consequences. She states that
each day we as parents, teachers,
and community should remember
"We do not live in a vacuum"
(quote by former professor, Dr.
Juanita Williams, Clinical
Psychology/FAMU), that every-
thing we do impacts those around
us.
Ms. Paris, (formerly married to
Roy Pride), has two children- Ron
and Keysha Pride and two grand-
children, Sydney and London all
currently residing in the Tampa
Bay area.

teachers are responsible for ignit-
ing the spark of motivation that
leads to the blazing fire of learn-
ing. Ms. Smith is passionate about


teaching (especially reading)
because it is the basis for all future
careers and endeavors.
She would like to thank God,
her parents, family, friends, and
previous educators that believed

pered words, pats on the back, and
advice she
might not be.
