'High Bridge'

declared

unsafe for

some traffic

Officials recommend
limit of three tons
due to bad condition

by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
The bridge on County Road 268, commonly
known as "High Bridge" is deficient.
Robert Presnell, the county's director of Public
Works, was notified earlier this month by
consultants from Volkert & Associates, Inc. that
the bridge is in "critical enough condition to
recommend reducing the posting to three U.S.
tons until the deficiencies have been corrected,"
the letter stated.
"It is one of the worst. We have four in the
county that fall below the 50 percent sufficiency
rating," Presnell said. A 100 percent rating is
the highest. The other bridges that fall into the
same category (below 50 sufficiency rating) as
High Bridge Road and that need immediate
attention and repairs are: Bear Creek, County
Road 157 at Concord Road, and Flat Creek
Road.
SHigh Bridge has a three ton limit at this time,
which is about the weight of a school bus.
"'We've notified the* school bus garage and the
sheriffs office. Whether they have re-routed the
buses I don't know, but I hope so," Presnell
said.
iHe said the bridge is perfectly safe for
passenger cars but log trucks and semi-tractor
trailers should not use the bridge.

tested

for TB

Positive test
Friday prompts
precautions
by LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor
The Gadsden County Health
Department tested around 300 East
Gadsden High School students
Tuesday for tuberculosis after health
department officials confirmed
Friday an EGHS student tested
positive for TB.
The student, who has not been in
school since Dec. 22, was tested by a
private physician. When the final test
results showed that the student had
TB, the doctor contacted local health
department officials, who then
contacted the school.
Health Department Director Sylvia
Byrd said Tuesday that while 300
students are being tested free of
charge, she doesn't expect a major
TB outbreak.
"The fact of the matter is, the
possibility of all of these people
having TB is remote. The screening
gives us a chance to look for that

It's a tune that Kim Moore, CEO of Workforce Plus,
hears often.
Emploi ers lament the fact that they have a hard time
finding and hiring suitable employees. The big three
that stand in the way, they say, ate inability to pass
drug tests, inability to pass a (criminal) background
check, and poor work ethic.
"We want to address those issues and work together
to solve them," Moore told the group of about 75

all of their lives except
for Harry's service to
his country.
They're proud to have called Massey Drugs THEIR drug store all
these years. They trust the Massey family...and ONLY the Massey
family with their prescriptions and have done so for three genera-
tions of Massey pharmacists.
Why is that? Mr. Holt is quick with his answer:
Service. From the time they walk through the front door until
they leave Massey's staff is helpful.
*Dependability. Every day. All day long. They know they can count
on Massey Drugs. They've always been here and always will.
They truly appreciate our business. When they say "Thank you"
we know they mean it.

Mrs. Nora Larson says
the folks at Massey Drugs
are the "most kind, most
caring" people that insist
on helping everyone in
any way they can.
But what she appreci-
Sates as much as the kind-
S ness and helpfulness is
MissJewel's appearance
at her door. You see, Mrs.
S Larson isn't able to drive
anymore and she counts
on Miss Jewel's deliveries

Very likely Santa Claus, but to Mrs. Larson she sure does!
S Massey Drugs delivers! More of that good, old fashioned service you

Mrs. Larson has depended on Massey Drugs almost since she and
Mr. Larson moved to Quincy from Palatka in 1949. However, it's

Alex Powell


"You don't take chances
with your children."
When Alex Powell talks about his
twin daughters, his eyes shine, but
when he tells how Massey Drugs'
service may have saved the life of one
of those precious 5-year-olds his eyes
get a little moist.
One of the girls, now 15 years old,
was born with a heart defect. She
needed medicine daily. As so many
had, Alex had gravitated toward
chain stores. But one day his daugh-
ter's medicine wasn't ready
for pickup. Alex's daughter's pre-
scription had fallenathrough-the ':
cracks of the day's production.
"My daddy had always come to
Massey's. Now I know why. They
know your name here. It has that
'hometown feel' and I wouldn't go
anywhere else."
Alex's twins are healthy teenagers.
Part of that he owes to Massey
Drugs.


"Everything Here Is Just Great."

Mr. and Mrs. Gentle McMillan
Massey Drugs customers for 69 years. '.

That's some twinkle in Mr. McMillan's eye. He just
turned 92, and this rural Quincy couple have celebrated
their 69th wedding anniversary.*'
Mrs. McMillan has had just one husband for 69 years,
but she's had just one drug store for even longer. She was
a customer of Massey Drugs even before she said "I do" to
that man with the twinkle in his eye...back when the drug
store was on the east side of the courthouse square. In
: fact, all three generations of the Massey family pharma- :, z I... .,
cists have filled their prescriptions and taken care of their : '
health care needs.
With so many other choices in pharmacies, why Massey
Drugs? Because, she says, "EVERYTHING here isJUST ,
GREAT! It's the 'ONLY drug store we use!"

"Miss Maggie"
McClendon !
A very loyal Massey "
Drugs customer.' I

Miss Maggie isn't bashful
about her age. She's quick to
tell you she's lived on God's
earth for 93 years already.
And, she's just as quick to tell
you Massey Drugs is HER
drug store.
"My family has been a Massey family all their lives," she says. "And I
feel like all the folks at Massey Drugs are like family to me."
Living in Chattahoochee, she began trusting a Massey pharmacist
decades ago when Lamar Massey was the local druggist. When he sold
his store about 18 years ago, she turned to Massey Drugs in Quincy.
The trip to Quincy (and she makes three to four a month) is worth it,
she says.
Why? "Because what I ask for, I get," she says emphatically. "I believe
in telling people the truth, and so do the folks here at Massey Drugs,"
she adds.
Her trips to Massey Drugs aren't always about prescriptions, either.
She loves the selection of crystal and gift items she buys for her family.

Massey Drugs

and what I need!
Very few businesses have
customers as passionate as
Sherry Thompson. But
she drives from ',,
Tallahassee every week for "-- U "
her prescriptions. She will t g
not trust any other pharmacy with her health.
Sherry became dissatisfied with the chain drug stores she had been
using during a recent illness. Friends, who were also loyal Massey
Drugs customers, recommended the pharmacy.
"At the time I was switching medications frequently, and they kept
up with it...all the changes in medicines and dosages and working
with several doctors and offices. Some of these medicines were not
normally stocked, and they kept up with all the special orders. I've
never had a pharmacy give me such service!" she says.
"Here, they actually work WITH you. That consistency of service
is so necessary, and the big pharmacies just don't offer that."
"At Massey Drugs, They Know Their Customers!"

The monster


IT's been sitting on my dining
room table since the day it arrived in
the mail. I pass IT several times a
day and cast my eyes at it as if it will
go away if I don't look at it directly.
When I took IT out of my mailbox
my heart seemed to skip a beat. "Oh
no," I said to myself quietly, "not IT
again. It can't be that sodn."
I know it was my imagination but
IT seemed to be burning the flesh on
my hand as I carried IT inside of my
home. For months now I've had this
same sensation when I've touch IT.
In the past, IT wouldn't have
affected me so adversely. But as the
months have come and gone for the
past two years, so too has my fear
grown of this beast that controls a
large part of my life. I don't know


from one month to the next what I
will be able to do for myself.
Will I have enough to pay my
bills?
Will there be enough left to buy
gas to get to work? Or church? Or to
visit my family right here in town?
Will I be able to buy groceries?
Sooner or later I will have to open
IT and that will be an all day
process. I will study the calendar and
choose a day'I think will be least
likely to be stressful for me.
Certainly not a Tuesday or
Wednesday, those are the busy days
at the office.
By now some of you may have
guessed what IT is. If you haven't, I
will reveal identity of the beast. IT is
my City of Quincy utility bill.

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


I'm In Love With Melba


Montgomery!


Boys, here's a day I never thought I'd
see! Remember me telling you about that
Ronco Veg-i-mat-ic I got Cathy for
Christmas the second year we were
married? That thing would slice, dice, peel,
chop, shoot salads out like there wasn't
gonna be no tomorrow..... And remember I
told you what a mistake it was! The very
second year I go and buy the perfect gift! If
I had known the marriage was going to last
this long I could have saved the Veg-i-mat-
ic till our silver anniversary.....
You live and learn.
And I can assure you sweaters, rings,
knee socks, rear tires, recliners, stuffed
bears, running shorts, microwaves and a set
of box end wrenches, while all worthy
Christmas gifts, they just don't measure up
We ate nothing but salads for six weeks. It
was worth it just to see the tomato bits
come flying out of that machine!
We had coleslaw "shoot-a-
rounds".....and onion chopping contests.
We'd experiment putting carrots in long
ways and side ways. We ground up beef
bullion and clogged up the little side
openings pushing hoop cheese through that
thing. The boys couldn't wait till they got
old enough to operate it.....
I honestly have lived since 1976
believing that I would never see another
gift that "could bring so much to the table."
Nothing Cathy and I would ever give or
receive could match that present. I was
wrong. Cathy, defying all odds, has topped
the Ronco Veg-i-mat-ic!
This past Christmas she gave me an XM
Radio. I had vaguely heard the term, but I
really had no idea what it was or how it
worked. Jesse, luckily, was home for the
holidays and he hooked it up for me. I still
don't know exactly how it functions but
you line that little antenna up just right,
tune that dial to channel 13, and the late,
great Ernest Tubb will come right into your
house singing Waltz Across Texas.
I didn't even know satellites had radios,
or transmitters or whatever it takes to relay
the signal to us. And I have no earthly idea
where this stuff is emanating from! It
sounds like something you would'a heard
out at Big Ed Laskey's Honky Tonk Bar
and Grill back in the late '40's. Ernest quit
singing and the Wilburn Brothers cut down
on Trouble's Back In Town. I hadn't heard
Teddy and Doyle since their television
show went off the air.
As soon as the Wilburn Brothers faded
some lady reminded everyone this was
Willie's place and Faron Young roared in
with I Miss You Already (And You're Not
Even Gone). People, there weren't any
commercials.. Nobody was trying to sell me
a car. No one suggested I needed a beauty
treatment. They didn't give me the correct
time or an update on the fighting in Iraq.
No one promised I would be the life of the
party if I drank Bud Light. There was no
political gibberish, ball scores or exercise


tips. No weather reports and or stock
market results.;...
These folks just played one good country
song after another! I couldn't believe my
ears! Connie Smith followed Faron with
Once A Day. It was just like Big Ed
advertised back in our day, "the hits just
keep on coming"....
And please understand here, I'm not
marketing, promoting or even suggesting
you rush out and buy one of these XM
Radio things. And I'm certainly not on
their payroll. I'm just telling you it works
for me! And I can send Jess over to your
house to help you set yours up. It may not
be the greatest thing to come along since
sliced bread, but it's the best thing I've
seen since the Ronco Veg-i-mat-ic.....
Cathy and I take our supper now with
Little Jimmy Dickens, Stonewall Jackson,
and Country Charlie Pride. And if we get
real lucky, HawkshawHawkins and
Skeeter Davis will drop by. I tell you, it
will make that hamburger helper taste like
filet mignon!
I'm a little worried about Cathy though,
she doesn't seem to be eating like she used
to..... I figure it's all those Conway Twitty
songs....
Hey listen, I saved the best for last. We
get ready for bed, I just move the set into
the bedroom, set that antenna in the north
window and we've got Johnny Rodriquez
doing Pass Me By If You're Only Passing
Through. I drifted off to sleep the other
night with Carl Smith as he "drifted" into
Deep Water. Governor Jimmie Davis
blasted me awake the next morning with
Columbus Stockade Blues. Life is good. I
didn't mind Cathy moving into the other
bedroom but she's got to quit turning on
that hair dryer in the morning. It's hard to
hear my songs....
These XM guys think Hank, Lefty and-
Bob Wills hung the moon. And they
unapologetically do not play Keith Urban
or Shania Twain! They've been reading my
mind.....
Someone told me that this thing has got a
hundred and seventy channels. I don't
know. I ain't turning off Willie's Place and
taking a chance on missing Faron or Ferlin
Husky or Charlie Louvin. They also told
me that every major league baseball game
is broadcast over XM Radio. 1 know that
can't be true! There ain't no one single
solitary device in the world that can give
you Melba Montgomery AND the St.
Louis Cardinals!
And this system isn't perfect. I haven't
heard Spade Cooley yet. Or Vernon
Dalhart. Or Sam and Kirk McGee and the
Fruit Jar Drinkers. But then, I remember
that Veg-i-mat-ic couldn't slice those
rutabagas exactly like Granny used to do
them ....
Respectfully,
Kes


We are out of cat food.
I know this because at 3 a.m. 25
pounds of irritated black-and-white
cat landed squarely on my head and
proceeded to make a serious effort to
relieve me of my hair with his claws.
There is no reasoning with a hungry
cat at 3 a.m.
Particularly one used to eating
every hour on the hour.
Immediately, I realized the error
of my ways.
Then I rolled over and tried to get
back to sleep.
There are several ways to really
offend a cat walking, talking,
existing, to name a few. Refusing to
get up out of bed and search for a can
of tuna or some leftover roast beef
when asked ranks up there with
owning a dog on the list of Offenses
against Catkind.
The cat put his head over my ear
and commenced to purring
menacingly at roughly 700 decibels.
Here's a little tip I picked up at 3:07
this morning: Never offer a cat
jonesing for Special Kitty Blend

you rue the day you added ketchup
and onion to perfectly good ground
beef, if you didn't already.
When I put the stuff in his dish, he
looked at it disdainfully didn't even
sniff it and yowled in horror. Then
he leapt onto the coffee table and
knocked off a carefully-stacked pile
of magazines, eyeing me defiantly. It
suddenly seemed like a good idea to
close the door tomny son's bedroom.
I opened the refrigerator, discerned I
would lose a finger if I offered any
of what was in there to the cat, and
tried the cupboard.
Green beans? I know better. Rice
Krispy treats? Forget about it.
Triscuits? Might as well stick my
hand in a blender.
Then, joy of joys, I spotted a can
of anchovies. He yelped approvingly
when I peeled the lid off and had
himself a nice early morning snack.
As for me, I'm headed to the store
once I get fully caffeinated to buy a
bag of cat food. Or two. Maybe five

Are our children

really safe at school?

Dear Editor:
It has been four months since the tragic death of
Crystal S. Riley. It continues to be very difficult to
manage not having her in our lives. I would like to
raise the attention of the school board officials. The
death of Crystalwas one child too many to die on a
school campus. What next? Are you prepared to
prevent and stop this school violence? I would like to
believe that our schools have a foolproof security
system, but I understand that's unrealistic. We must
treat each time the doors of our schools open that we
can meet danger. So we must act at the onset of the
violence we are now facing. We must eliminate the
intake of violence, not treat the results, it's too late.
We must go after safety for our children never
ceasing and always vigilant with ways and means to
protect our children. Parents and families, are we
doing enough to reinforce school officials, sheriff
department and others to keep our children safe
while attending school and school related activities?
No pun intended, but where is the action behind
children are our future? What would you consider
the cost of security and safety for investing in our
youth?
This is a community concern. Is it funding that we
need to make sure we increase safety at our schools?
We are all taxpayers, take it up a notch or so, ask for
funding from state, local and federal government for
assistance. These are our children and we are
responsible for their well-being and safety. What
about the religious community? Again this is a
community concern. Can we all come together and
rally around this serious issue of safety in our
schools?
In general we can decide what the needs are and
can accomplish results. We are the voting
community and what we say goes. Maybe the school
officials and the sheriff department can prepare and
implement a crisis plan to ensure our children's
safety. Do it now at the onset, the results will be too
late. We cannot allow what happened to Crystal to
happen to another child. What about the children?
I'm wondering if they feel that they are safe and
protected while at school and school related
activities. It is just not enough to use common sense
procedures and standards to ensure safety that was
for yesterday. Today we must prepare a plan and
implement Safety First Priority. Pardon me, if you
have already considered safety measures and they are
being'implemented, my apologies, but we have not
been informed of any.

No comet

in sight,

but a view

worth the

time

I was excited to learn last
week there might be a bright
comet in the sky for several
nights, A fairly inconspicuous
comet, Comet McNaught had
suddenly brightened greatly as
it approached the sun in its
orbit, and would be visible to
most folks in the Northern
hemisphere after
sundown., -
Seeing how
amateur
astronomy and
photography ari,
two of my
hobbies, I
drove to Lake
Seminole to
set up a
camera and get a photo with a
beautiful foreground, hoping to
get a shot at the glorious'
appearance of the "brightest
comet in 30 years" that would
follow the sun to the horizon.
On Wednesday night,
McNaught was sure to be a
naked-eye comet for the second
night in a row, making a
brilliant appearance in the
evening sky, rivaling Hale-
Bopp, which dominated the
night and early morning skies
in the mid-90's.
So after sundown, I made my
way down a remote, crumbling
asphalt landing at the foot of
the lake, stumbling and
bobbling camera equipment and
binoculars the whole way,
watching the western sky for
any glimpse of the next coming
of Hale-Bopp, intent on
capturing this golden moment
in astronomical history.
Once I got there and set up
my equipment, I waited ... and
waited.. and waited.
There was no comet that I
could see at all. It may have
been the haze; it may have been
the fact that I couldn't find the
landing that faced directly west
from the lake; or it could have
been that it was below the
treeline by the time I arrived.
But I saw nothing
astronomically extraordinary in
the western sky, and that was
disappointing to me.
I was getting a little
perturbed with the astronomical
science reports and Web sites
that had promised me this
spectacular vision in the
twilight. The most reliable
sources I know had promised
I'd see an astonishing comet on
this night.
But as I grumbled to myself,
waiting and watching for a
faint, fuzzy light in the heavens,
the western sky turned golden
as the sun settled in below the
horizon, the night sky deepened
to an unusually thick blue, and
the waves of the lake lapped
lazily at my feet in the lost
light.
After two hours of solitude
and spectacular scenery,
something dawned on me on
this particular dusk.
My comet didn't show up for
me, but a lesson was learned:
keep your eyes to the sky, but
look at your feet from time to
time.

Tallahassee woman struck, killed on U.S. 90


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

Two separate traffic accidents
in Gadsden County last week
claimed the life of a Tallahassee
woman and left a Havana man in


critical condition.
On Wednesday morning, just
before daybreak, 37-year-old
Angela Robinson was struck and
killed by a car driven by Daysha
Barnes, 20, also of Tallahassee.
According to a Florida Highway


Patrol report, Barnes was travel-
ing east on U.S. Highway 90,
just -east of Brickyard Road in
the inside lane. Robinson was
standing in the inside lane of
U.S. Highway 90 facing west
when Barnes' 1993 Chevrolet


struck her. She died at the
scene.
Also, a 56-year-old Havana
man, Agustin Inostroza, was crit-
ically injured Sunday afternoon
around 12:30 p.m.
According to the FHP report,


witnesses stated that Inostroza
was traveling north on County
Road 161 'above the posted
speed limit and was seen cross-
ing the dotted center line in the
southbound lane. Near Claude
Whiddon Drive he veered onto


the grassy shoulder and lost con-
trol of his car. After striking a
culvert, the car became airborne,
traveling about 70 feet before
striking a tree.
He was transported to
Tallahassee Memorial Hospital.


'Meet and Greet' brings out issue of crime watch in St. Hebron


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

About 100 people stopped by
the old Community Store in the
St. Hebron Community, north-
:east of the City of Quincy,
:Thursday afternoon to talk with
Sheriff Morris A. Young.
"I came out to support the
Gadsden County Sheriff's
Office and to talk with the sher-
iff about starting a crime watch
program for our community,"
said Pamela Reid.
She said she also wanted to
do something to stop people
from hanging out on street cor-
ners.
It's not a good example, she
said, for her young son Jovaunte
Cunningham.
"Ve want to get our commu-
nity cleaned up," said Edrick
Smith. He heard about the Meet
and Greet program Young
began shortly after he was elect-
ed two years ago.
"I wanted to see what it was
all about and to find out how it
could help our community,"
Smith said. He was accompa-
:nied by his twin daughters,
Makeyla and Kayla. The two
'had a handful of literature with
information on personal safety,
"Say No" to drugs, and bicycle
:safety.
"This program is intended to
bring law enforcement to the
community in a way that is not
intimidating. A lot of people
never get to interact with the
sheriffs office unless there is a

Are you a teenager fascinated
by the court system? Does the
hammering of a prosecuting
attorney or the emotional pleas
of a defense attorney scream
your name? Then you're in luck.
The first meeting of Gadsden
County's newest youth initia-
tive, Teen 'Court, will be held
Tuesday, January 23, at 7 p.m.
in the Guy Race Building
(Felony Court Annex). The
courtroom is located on the first
floor at 24 North Adams Street,
at the corner of Adams and
Washington streets in down-
town Quincy.
"This is a peer justice pro-
gram. The students will do
everything. The only adult will
be the judge," said Cydnee
Williams-Brown, Teen Court
Director. Students are attorneys,
bailiffs, clerks of court, and jury
according to Williams-Brown.
The program is open to any
high school student in public or
private school in the county.
Williams-Brown said there may
be some exceptions made for
eighth-graders depending on the
individual's level of maturity.
The meeting is informational in
scope and designed to inform
teenagers about the project.


Parents are welcome.
For more information, call
Williams-Brown at 245-2640

said the program could be very
effective because a lot of people
are at home all day and can
watch out for neighbors who are
at work.
Ivory said she is planning a
community meeting in the near


future to set up the program.
"The more presence we have
in a community the more crime
will go down. The citizens can
be our eyes and ears because we
can't be everywhere," Young
said.

Gadsden native set to turn 100


by LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor

Lillian Cox remembers when
there were no paved roads in
Gadsden County.
Born and raised in Gadsden
County, she'll celebrate her
100th year of life Feb. 21.
"There were no paved roads -
they were all dirt," she said.
"We walked most of the time."
The daughter of a seam-
stress, Jenny Parramore Todd,
and a merchant, Robert Lilton
Todd, Cox was raised in a house
on Jefferson Street in Quincy
two blocks from the railroad.
The house is long gone, but the
memories remain.
Her father owned a grocery
and meat market on Jefferson
Street; her mother spent a lot of
time sewing.
"My sister was two years
older than me. People thought
we were twins," Cox said. "My
mother she sewed our dresses
and dressed us just alike."
Cox's family was one of the
first in Quincy to own an auto-
mobile "A Ford, of course,"
she said and her father had
begun studying to become a.
minister when he died at 35.
Although she's lived in
Tallahassee for more than 65
years, she has fond memories of
growing up in Gadsden County.
"It was lovely," she said,



It's Girl Scout

Cookie time

It's Girl Scout Cookie time!!!
Every year, thousands of girls
across the Apalachee Bend area
gain valuable knowledge while
providing the community with a
special treat Girl Scout cookies.
This year will be no exception.
Locally, girls are taking pre-
orders for Girl Scout Cookies
through January 20 that will be
distributed between February 10
and 14 just in time for Valentine's
Day. The" sale ends March 4. All
varieties of Girl Scout cookies are
now "zero trans fat per serving" in
compliance with FDA regulations.
This change was made because,
like most successful business-
women, Girl Scouts listen to their
customers. There also is a choco-
late sugar free cookie, the "Little
Brownie." Proceeds from your
purchase are distributed according
to a council plan to benefit all girls
involved in Girl Scouting. They
stay in your community to support
Girl Scouts in your community
with a portion of the proceeds
going directly to the troop/group
selling the cookies, and some to
program activities, training for
volunteers, camp and camp staff,
service centers/offices and staff,
Council publications, and finan-
cial assistance for girl program
participation.If you have ques-
tions about Girl Scouting in your
area, please contact membership
marketing consultant Jelema
Moore at 850-386-2131, or

Web site at www.gscab.org. Girl
Scouting builds girls of courage,
confidence, and character, who
make the world a better place. The

dressed elegantly for her inter-
view in a snow-white dress,
matching shawl, ornate pearl
necklace and impeccable make-
up. "I remember playing hav-
ing fun. Visiting my grandpar-
ents, S.S. and Katie Parramore
on Lake Talquin Road. We'd
catch a wagon to get to my
grandparents' farm pack a few
things, my sister and I they
had cows, horses and tobacco.
They knew everything they
ate."
There was no shortage of fun
things to do in Gadsden County
at the time, Cox said.
"We played basketball at
school and competed with
teams in outlying towns. One of
the great things was going down
to the train depot and watching


the trains come in," she said.
Cox graduated from high
school and had planned to earn
a college degree but instead,
met and married her husband,
Thomas Henry Cox.
The two lived in a house on
King Street in Quincy for years.
"After I had been married for
a few years I gained weight,"
she said.
"He helped me lose it he
would prepare meals for him-
self and our daughter, and I rode
bikes, went swimming and
danced.'"
The couple spent a number
of pleasurable evenings at a
local country club, dancing and
socializing. Sometimes they
made ice cream.
"I turned the crank for the ice
cream we made mostly vanil-
la, and peach," she said.
After her husband took a
construction job at Albritton
Williams, the two moved to
Tallahassee with their daughter
Carolyn. who was 10 or 11 at
the time.
When Cox's husband became
ill, she opened "Lillian's," a
ladies fine fashion store on
Adams Street in Tallahassee, to-
help make ends meet. She ran
the store for 28 years and was a
founding member of the
American Business Women's
Association. She also was
named "Florida's Woman of the

She has stayed active in
community activities through-
out her life. In Tallahassee, she's
been a long-time member of
clubs and organizations includ-
ing the Tallahassee Women's
Club, where a celebration of her
100th birthday will be held Feb.
25, the Garden Club, the
Camellia Club, the Pilot's Club
and Old Town Neighborhood
Association.
She attributes her longevity
to "working hard, drinking lots
of water, and having friends."
The Tallahassee Women's
Club's birthday celebration for
her will be hosted by her daugh-
ter, Carolyn Cox Partch, and
will be Feb. 25 from 2-5 p.m.

Florida's basketball bunch is play-
ing like the\ did at the end of last sea-
son when they won it all. There's a
long way to go in the seai though and
don't be surprised if the Gator's lelin-
quish that number 1 ranking at any-
time

FSU MEN'S HOOPS

two losses this year and seemed to be
headed for the NCAA play-offs after
their pre-ACC schedule.
Things haven't gone well since they

Their game Wednesday night at home
against Virgima Tech was important as
they need to put w's in their ACC col-
umn.

NFL PICKS
\\hoeter wins this weeks NFL
Conference tiles will be all right with
me. I lLke all four teams and won't
really case however the match-up will
be in the Super Bowl.
But. I'll take a stab and pick the
Colts to defeat New\ England in the
AFC title game and the Saints to upset
the Beais in the NFC game.
I say it will be a Colts-Saints Super
Bowl. But if it's a Colts-Bears game.
a Bears-Patroits game, or a Saints-
Patriots game it will be fine by me.

er big week coming up."

West Gadsden


Panthers move to 10-8


by Susie Morris

The West Gadsden Lady
Panthers moved their record to
10-8 on the season with three
wins last week. They defeated
Jefferson County 64-46 as
Tyesha Battles continues her
scoring spree scoring 32 points.
Krinishia Ash added 13 and
Kayla Streeter 11 in the win.


Next the team slipped by
Wewahitchka 53-50. Battles
scored 21 points and Streeter 14
points. The third and final vic-
tim for the week were the
Sneads Pirates. In a low scoring
game the Panthers won out 33-
23. Tyesha Battles again led her
team in scoring, this time with
18 points.
The Munroe Lady Cats split


two non-district games, losing
to Blountstown but defeating
Altha. The Lady Cats lost to
Blountsown by 15 points on
Monday night and defeated
Altha 51-30 on Thursday in
Altha. Crystal Wade, Kendall
McPhaul and Malorie
McKinnon each scored 13
points in the win. Wade added
eleven rebounds for a double-


double. Julia Bates added nine
rebounds. McKinnon dished
out six assists and Carrie Scott
tallied four steals.
The East Gadsden Lady
Jaguars have now lost three
games in a row but don't call in
the Fat Lady, yet. After dropping
two games last weekend to top
opponents in a Jacksonville
Tournament, the team had four


days off before tying up with
North Florida Christian, a top-
ranked team in Class 2A who
defeated the Panthers back on
November 27. The game did not
play out like a revenge match;
however, as NFC jumped out
to a quick 17-10 lead in the first
quarter. At halftime, the Eagles
led 30-16 and never looked back
on their way to a convincing 64-


46 win. It was obviously an off
night for the Jaguars as only six
players scored and only one,
Chelsea McMillan, in double
figures. McMillan finished with
18 points.
The team will look to get
back on the winning track with
games against Godby, Panama
City Arnold and Florida High
this week.

Gadsden County woman celebrates her 100th birthday


by LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor

Mert Bevis' eyes widened as a
parade of people carrying flowers
and a birthday cake entered her
living room.
"I can't believe it!" she said. "I
can't believe it!"
Monday was her 100th biith-
day, and friends and fellow
Centenary United Methodist
Church members threw her a sur-
prise party.
"I'll wake up tomorrow and
this will be a dream," she said.
Born in Willacoochee, Ga.,
and raised in Cirrabelle, Mrs.
Bevis has been in Gadsden
County since the early '50s.
In Carrabelle, her father was
an engineer for G F & A Railroad,
and she worked as an agent for a
shrimping operation in
Carrabelle.
She was in charge of one of


and at accomplishing the feat of
reaching 100 years of age.
"I feel great I don't have one
pain or any ache," she said. "I
can't believe I'm 100. I don't
deserve this I love it."
She married Byron Bevis after
moving to Quincy she's not sure
exactly which year. He died in
1978.
At the age of 80, she built a
second beach house in Carrabelle
- "I had a home there and a beach

the stations the shrimp boat
Tarpon stopped at, and when the
boat sank in 1938, she moved to
Quincy and worked as an
accountant in the state treasurer's
office in Tallahassee.
"I grew up in Carrabelle but
I've been in Gadsden County a


long time I feel like a
Gadsdentonian now," she said.
Among the guests at her home
Jan. 15 were retired Centenary
Pastor John Whitehead and his
wife, Lucy.
Mrs. Bevis marveled at all the
company present for her party


Midway garbage problem solved, for now


by LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor

Waste Management resumed
garbage pickup in Midway last
week after a special City Council
meeting on the issue.
During the Jan. 10 meeting,
council members voted to read-
vertise the franchise in three area
newspapers. City Manager Paul
Piller had recommended in a pre-
vious meeting that Waste Pro be
given the contract as it was the
only company to bid on it; the pro-
posal was opposed by several
Midway residents and City
Councilman Charles Willis.
The city will pay Waste
Management to pick up garbage
until the issue is resolved.
When the City Council mem-
bers failed to approve the Waste
Pro contract several weeks ago,
Waste Management had already
stopped collecting garbage in the
city.
"I could care less who picks it
up I just want it picked up," said
Midway resident Headley White.
The main item of contention in
the proposed franchise is wording
that requires garbage collection
companies bidding on it to have
vehicles no more than two years


"My concern, as it always was
in the past I still contend citizens
of Midway need to be notified of
things that are going to effect their
lives," Mayor Pro Tem Ella Barber
said. "...we need to readvertise to
give people out there who might
be interested a chance to advertise.
We're dealing with people's lives.
You come in and use your power
to lock these people in and it
effects their lives. I feel like if we
can have time to advertise, it will
give people who want to provide a
chance to come forward."
Attorney Rick Bateman, who
represents Waste Management,
said his company was given an
opportunity to bid on the contract
but didn't because of the two-
years-old-or-newer vehicle clause.
"Waste Management was
given ample opportunity to bid on
this contract," Bateman said. "...In
the garbage business, we spend a
lot of money on our equipment ...
we ain't got old equipment to
begin with."
Bateman said hesent a letter to
Piller Nov. 17 noticing him the
company would no bid on the
contract.
"We didn't abruptly stop pick-
ing up garbage and disappear in


the middle of the night," he said.
Willis wanted to know whether
citizens were notified that trash
pickup was changing.
"Did you tell citizens Waste
Pro was not going to be able to
pick up?" he asked Piller.
"No," Piller said.
"See, that's what I'm talking
about," Willis said.
Piller suggested as an alterna-
tive not awarding either company
a coritract and allowing both to
pick up trash within the city.
"We could just not award a
franchise tell Waste Pro if they
want to pick garbage they can, and
tell Waste Management if they
want to pick up garbage they can,"
he said.
Bateman, however, said both
the city and the garbage collection
company it chooses would benefit
from having a franchise.
"We do need a franchise," he
said. "And whether we get it or
Waste Pro gets it, you do need a
franchise."
Council members voted unani-
mously to readvertise the fran-
chise and remove the stipulation
requiring trucks to be twp years or
newer. The awarding of the fran-
chise will not take place until
March, Piller said.


cottage," she said. She sold it
about 10 years ago and now stays
primarily in Quincy.
She paused when asked about
possible reasons for her longevi-
ty; asked by a friend whether she
ever had a glass of wine, she said,
with relish, "Plenty."
"They say that's good for the
heart," her friend noted.
"It's good for everything," she
corrected.
Once an avid gardener, she


was one of three children and
grew up in Carrabelle with a sis-
ter, Joyce, and brother, Wynn.
"I appreciate this so much,"
she told those gathered for her
centennial. "I've lived a full, good
life."
She thought for several
moments when asked what she
thought was the most important
lesson she's learned in life.
Finally, it came to her.
"Play fair," she said.

ence with his singing during Gretna's Commemorative Celebration Monday at 11 a.m.
Tallahassee City Commissioner Andrew Gillum was the featured speaker.Above right, volunteers
from Big Bend Hopice attended the Unity Breakfast early Monday morning at the Joe Ferolito

hospitalist physician for
admission and in patient care.
Gadsden Hospital, Inc. Board
would function as the Hospital
Board of Directors and be
expected to provide strategic
direction.
TMH has suggested four steps
in opening the hospital: 1. Start-up
planning 2.Pre-opening 3. Ramp-
up 4. Stabilizing.
TMH suggested $3.8 million
for start-up with an on-going $1.5
million.
With CAH designation, TMH
would be looking for working
capital to open the doors and
maintain the hospital annually.
Another company, Specialty
Healthcare Management, (SHM)
proposed to open Gadsden
Hospital as a speciality
rehabilitation hospital. If CAH
status was acquired at a later date,
they would be pleased to operate
the hospital as CAH and a 10-bed
rehabilitation hospital.
As a rehabilitation hospital,
SHM would be completely self-
sufficient.
SHM is a for profit company
and would like the authority to
place hospital programming as
they see fit.
SHM would provide some
indigent care, but not for the
masses- ....... '
SHM would have four persons
on staff and they would' be on
premises.
SHM is okay with the Urgent
Care Center being managed by
TMH and as well as with other
entities occupying the hospital as
long as building costs are prorated.
SHM said they would begin to
receive patients within one week


BRIDGES from


High Bridge is heavily used by
people who live south of Quincy
along High Bridge Road to
Midway.
Often, it is an alternative to U.S.
Highway 90.
The engineers noted the
following deficiencies:
*pedestals 1 and 2 are
undermined the full length of the
culvert.
*there is a scour beneath the
floor slab
*the floor slab is breaking apart
due to settlement and undermining
*pedestal 2 has a vertical (Class
1) crack with efflorescence at the
centerline
In short, according to Shasta
O'Donnell of Volkert & Associates,
water has undermined parts of the
bridge's structure and over the
years dirt has been washed away

people. Last week's forum was
the second in a series planned by
Workforce Plus to address
problems associated with
developing a workforce that will
attract business and industry to
Gadsden County.
The Workforce Plus region,
which includes Gadsden, Leon,
and Wakulla counties, had a
unemployment rate of 2.9 percent
in Nov. 2006 which was slightly
down from the region's November
2005 rate which was 3.0 percent.
Out of a labor force of 178,062
there were 5,080 unemployed
Workforce Plus area residents.
Some leaders dispute that
number and former Board of
County Commission Chairman Ed
Dixon and current chairman Benda
Holt have repeatedly 'said the
number of unemployed is around
25 percent in the African-
American community.
Workforce's own figures show
that Gadsden County has the
highest unemployment rate in the
region at 3.7.
Moore said she wants to key
getting people trained in whatever


of the commencement of their
marketing program.
The third company, Alliant
Management Services (AMS)
made the following points in their
proposal:
CAH is a requirement.
AMS would view themselves
as an employee of the Gadsden
Hospital Inc., Board of Directors..
AMS could be very helpful in
getting CAH restored.
501(c)3 status (not for profit)
for the hospital is generally
advantageous to hospitals in terms
of negotiating for equipment and
contracts. Wabash Hospital
(managed by AMS) has raised
hundreds of thousands of dollars
each year.
AMS is a member of the
Premier Purchasing Group, the
nation's largest. The company
would offer the benefits of heavily
discounted pricing to Gadsden
Hospital.'
AMS believes it is the
repsonsibility of community
hospitals to have a charity care
policy and provide free care. It
would anticipate some level of
financial support from the county
based on the amount of -charity
care provided by the hospital.
AMS estimates that between
$1.8 to $2.5 million will be spent
for clinical equipment and a
computer operating system would
be required, plus $2.5 to $5 million
for all other needed equipment.
AMS anticipates an annual
operating expense of $6 to $7
million and that it would take
about nine months to initiate cash
flow. Therefore, the hospital
operation would require $4 million
in operating capital. The company

from the pedestals that hold up the
structure.
The company recommended
mud-packing (replacing the soil)
the floor and pedestals, filing and
stabilizing the. undermined areas
and placing suitable rubber riprap
along both sides of the culvert.
"We recommend routine
monitoring until the deficiencies
are corrected," the letter states.
Those monitoring the bridge
should check for settlement at the
pedestals and increased cracking
of the pedestals, the company
advised.
Presnell said he is the process of
contacting firms about materials.
"I'm hoping we can do it inhouse
and keep it under $25,000. If we
have to go out for bids that could
be a two or three month process,"
he said.

area it takes to get them employed
and to make sure they remain
employed. The county's strengths
and weaknesses were looked at
from the point of view of the
business owner and government.
Human resource directors said
they have the same problems
getting and keeping good people in
government positions the same as
private industry.
All agreed that there needs to be
a coordination of services as
related to organizations matching
people with jobs. For instance,
some employers were unaware
that Gadsden Technical Institute
wants to work with companies and
governments to provide potential
employees.
GTI director, Debra Rackley,
said she would be happy to sit
down with employers to discuss
their needs. "We are able to, in
some instances, tailor courses for
the employer," she said.
Moore said other meeting are
planned and hopes that the forums
will help bridge the gap between
local employers and potential
employees.


sees the $4 million as operating
capital as a line of credit-type deal,
to be drawn down as needed and
repaid from Medicare and
Medicaid settlements.
AMS would work with TMH to
transition the Urgent Care Center
to a hospital emergency
department, acquire lab and
radiology equipment and get a few
hospital beds up and operating as
quickly as possible. In-patient
census would be grown as local
physicians gained confidence in
the quality of care provided.
AMS indicated that hospital
strategic planning would be a
consensus building activity
involving the Hospital Board of
Directors, hospital staff, market
and financial surveys as well as
physician interviews.
AMS said the Hospital Board
of Directors would receive the
financial statement, P & L
statement and the balance sheet
monthly.
The healthcare partners of Blue
and Company, a privately held
corporation owns AMS. AMS will
attempt to provide some financial
information on Blue and Company
to the Hospital Board of Directors.
Finally, AMS will provide the
CEO and CFO as AMS
employees,. All otLher- staff
members would be employees of
the hospital. -
The Board of Directors discussed
the proposal of each company

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.

Student Tavarris Walker said, "I
felt good because dressing up
will help the school get a more .

Greensboro Elementary
annouces the 2006-2007
Teacher of the Year, Annette
Jones-Walker, fifth grade
teacher. Jones-Walker was born
and raised in Greensboro. Her
parents are the late Reverend
Edward Jones and Mrs. Annie
Mae Jones. She has three sisters
and two brothers. She attended
Southside Elementary in
Chattachoochee and went to
Carter-Parramore High School
in Quincy, Florida. She graduat-
ed high school from Forsyth
Technical Institute in Winston-
Salem, NC. She moved back to
Florida and became a substitute
teacher for several years in the

Flagler College, receiving a
degree in elementary education


with an ESOL endorsement.
While she was there, she was
inducted into Phi Theta Kappa,
an organization for students
who excel academically and
constantly made the Dean's List.
In 2004, she began teaching at

Ms. Jones-Walker says
teaching became part of her
when she became the Volunteer

daughter, Tunisia Hairston,
began college, she encouraged
her mother to go with her. They
both teach fifth grade at
Gree sboro Elem. across the
hall from each other. She is the
mother of five children. She is a
member of St. Rose AME
Church, where she is an associ-
ate on the ministerial staff. She
loves to read, and she loves to
teach.
Jones-Walker says her father
encouraged his children to try to
be the best at whatever they did.
She says she takes the best the
parents have to send her, and she
takes the best the students have
to give and educates them with
it. She has former students who
have been successful in life, and
they have come back from time
to time to thank her for helping

Encouragement at



Carter-Parramore


There are times in life when
students need ait extra boost of
encouragement that can help
them achieve their maximum
potential in school. Teachers,
staff and administrators do their
best to offer support, but every
so often additional encourage-
ment is needed.
Luckily for the students at
Carter-Parramore Academy
there is always hope, and this
time it's through educational
development counseling, a new
program headed by Annette
Baker, CPA's guidance coun-
selor. The program allows stu-
dents to discuss issues and prob-
lems that they may be having
that prevent them from doing


their absolute best in class.
Assisting with the program
are two volunteers that are
enthusiastic about coming to the
Lion's Den a couple of days a
week. Baker is pleased that they
have taken an interest in helping
CPA. The volunteers, graduate
students from Florida State
University's College of Social
Work, have dedicated them-
selves to improving the lives of
the students. Volunteer Jerrold
Jackson maintains, "We have a
specific vision for our time in
Gadsden County. We want to
make .an effective change and
show students how to pave the
way towards a lifetime of better
choices." According to Jackson,


Mrs. Rena Nelson and Mrs.
Mathella Gibson have completed
the Reading Endorsement
required by the State of Florida's
Department of Education for sec-
ondary teachers and reading
coaches. They met the 300 hours
required in the Performance
Learning System track. The mis-
sion of PLS is to enhance educa-
tion by offering services that
increase the effectiveness of edu-
cators. and others who support
excellence in education. The
vision is to provide students with
the best trained teachers in the
world.
The PLS track included six


competencies some of which are:
Language and Cognition,
Differentiated Instruction and
Research-Based practices. The
course provided Mrs. Nelson and
Mrs. Gibson access to the latest
research and information to apply
in the classroom to improve stu-
dents' reading ability. Mrs.
Nelson and Mrs. Gibson said it
was a lot of hard work but now
they are eager to put their training
to work in the classroom, to help
all the teachers at Havana
Elementary improve students'
reading levels.
Mrs. Nelson is a veteran
teacher of 28 years, having taught


Reading coaches Mathella Gibson and Rena Nelson.


kindergarten, 1st, 4th and 5th
grades. She came to HES in 1988
and has been a Reading Coach
for three years.
Mrs. Gibson has been teach-
ing at 'HES since 1981. She has
taught Adult Education as well as
kindergarten, 1st and 3rd grades.


She has been a Reading Coach
for six years. Principal, Mrs.
Elizabeth Turner, is overjoyed at
their accomplishments. They are
highly qualified to teach reading
at all grade levels(K-12). Mrs.
Turner says, "Now their work
really begins!"

on the FCAT. Students will
earn play money for each cor-
rect question. The play money
may be traded for prizes at the

consistency is the key. Research
has suggested that consistent
behavior and cognitive modifi-
cations will yield long-lasting,
positive results. Volunteer
Donnie Gardener states that he
is excited about the opportunity
to create innovative strategies
and programs that will enhance
self-esteem, build character and
increase critical thinking. "If we
can give them skills to think for
themselves and solve problems,


then we have done our job
well."
Junior Kendra Willis who
met with Gardener really
enjoyed their session. She feels
that he is someone that she can
depend on to give her good
advice.
She would like to meet with
him on a regular basis. Carter-
Parramore is certainly taking
strides to make this year its best
yet.

THE CLITTCEING SAWMILL


Eighteen-year-old James Marshall was a trained car-
penter when he left his New Jersey home in 1828.
After living in Indiana and Illinois, he settled in
Kansas and bought a small farm. After years spent
enduring bad weather and famine, he gave up the
farm to move further west. As a result, he arrived at
the Sacramento River settlement in California dur-
ing the summer of 1845.

A growing settlement always needs trained carpen-
'ters, so John Sutter, the settlement's owner, immedi-
ately hired Marshall. Two years.later, Sutter offered
Marshall a partnership in a sawmill he planned to
build on the American River. In return for building
and operating the mill, Marshall would keep a por-
tion of the wood.


Recognizing an opportunity, Marshall accepted and
the two became partners in mid-1847.

Finding reliable workers to build the mill posed a
problem until a wagon train of Mormons arrived at
the settlement. The men were looking for work.
Skilled and reliable, they were hired to build the
sawmill.

Assembling the necessary materials took them until
after the New Year. By the time Marshall and his
crew of men arrived at the site on the American
River he had selected for the sawmill, it was the mid-
dle of January 1848.

Some men began building the foundation for
the mill, while others dug a


tA'


channel to allow water diverted from the river to
flow through a water wheel that would power the
sawmill. A gate at the river's edge controlled water
flow, allowing them to start or stop the water wheel
as needed.

Standing near the channel late on the afternoon of
January 23rd, Marshall was talking to James Brown,
who was one of his workers. As they talked, he
noticed an unusual rock protruding from the bot-
tom of the channel. The rock looked like granite, was
about fifteen feet long, and fivefeet wide. Thinking
it may cause a construction problem, Marshall
jumped into the channel and took his pickaxe to the
rock. It wasn't granite. It was soft.

After closer examination, Marshall turned to Brown
and said: "Well, we will hoist the gates and turn in all
the water that we can to-night, and tomorrow morn-
ing we will shut it off and come down here, and I
believe we will find gold or some kind of mineral
here.

The nedt morning Marshall returned to the channel,
closed the gate. and once again examined the rock,
breaking off a dozen small pieces. After placing
them inside his wool cap, he showed them to his
wvorkmen, and said: "Boys. I have got her now

Inside his cap were gold nuggets. Although he did-
n i yet kno t it James Marshall had just started the
California Gold Rusli. Find out more about James
Marshall, John Sutter, and the California Gold Rush.
