TB workshops

planned


Health Dept. hopes
to bring public up

to speed after scare

by LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor
Ir an effort to stem the slight wave of hysteria
that followed a recent announcement that two
East Gadsden High School students tested
positive for tuberculosis, the Gadsden County
Health Department is planning two workshops
on the issue to keep parents, educators and
students informed.
One student was tested for the disease shortly
before Christmas and had not been back to
school when positive results came in January;
the other was tested as part of a group test of
around 300 students in mid-January.
The Health Department offered free tuberculin
skin tests to students, teachers and faculty who
had been in close contact with the students.
Meanwhile, rumors that more cases have been
detected or that basketball teams from other
high schools have refused to play against EGHS
are swirling. Health Department spokesman
Maximo Martinez said the rumors are just that.
"In response to unfounded speculations about
an increase of TB active cases, the Health
Department only confirms the two active TB
cases as reported last week," Martinez stated in
a press release. "The Gadsden County Health
Department, in conjunction with the Gadsden
County School Board, will be holding two
informational TB meetings to respond 'to
parents, students, teachers and faculty concerns.
The first meeting will take place at East
Gadsden High School, Wednesday, Jan. 31 at 6
p.m. in the school cafeteria. The second
informational meeting will be held at Havana
Middle School Thursday, Feb. 1 at 6 p.m. hi the
media center."
While the Taylor County High School girls'
basketball team did recently cancel a game
against the Lady Jaguars, it was due to player
injuries and grades, Taylor High Principal
Michael Thompson said.

Authorities seek robbery suspect


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
The Gadsden County Sheriffs Office is
looking for 42-year-old Jerome Robinson
of Havana in connection with an armed
robbery and aggravated battery with a
deadly weapon attempt last Wednesday
night around 7 p.m.
According to a press release from the
GCSO, Robinson, who did odd jobs in
and around Second Hand Sandies at
3874 Florida Georgia Highway, was


recognized by the
proprietor of the
business when he
attempted to rob her
as she closed for the
day.
The owner of the
store, whose name
was not released,
told authorities that Robinson
she had locked up
and was leaving when she noticed a
black man emerge from around the


Fire guts King Street home


building wearing a ski mask and holding
a knife.
"The suspect demanded money but the
victim refused the robber's request. (He)
attempted to grab the victim's purse
when she began to struggle and
eventually pulled the mask off the
suspect," the report stated.
Robinson was able to wrestle the
woman to the ground, slamming her
head and threatening to kill her as they
fought over the knife. He managed to
remove approximately $200 from the


woman's cigarette case and left the area
onfoot. The K-9 unit was able to track
Robinson to a nearby trailer park where
witnesses reported that he grabbed some
items from a home and fled on foot.
Robinson is described as a black male,
5-foot-9-inches tall with brown eyes, and
close cropped hair (almost bald). He
weighs about 220 pounds. Anyone with
information on Robinson's whereabouts
is asked to call Inv. Scott Ivey at 627-
7698. All information will remain
confidential.


Alleged gunman


takes stand at trial


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
Terrell Powell, now 17, took
the witness stand Tuesday
afternoon and admitted that he
pulled the trigger of a stolen 12-
gauge shotgun that blew off part
William Moses Wilson's face on
August 9, 2003. Wilson died the
next day around noon. His last
night on earth 'was spent
struggling to pull himself out of
the dirt where he fell.
The whole thing, testified
Powell, who was 13 years old at
the time of the murder, was about
money. He said he wanted to
commit enough robberies to buy
a go-cart.
But Powell isn't on trial this
week, it's his cousin, Donna
Cannon, who has been charged
with first degree murder and
armed robbery. She faces a 12-

A fire at 319 King St. in Quincy late Tuesday afternoon caused serious damage to
the home but not its occupants, although two dogs perished in the fire. The Quincy
Fire Department, Quincy Police Department, EMS and the Gadsden County
Sheriff's Office worked the fire, which began around 4 p.m. The home, located next
door to the McFarlin House, was owned by Alyse and Ledestich Emory Ostreicher,
who bought it in 2003 and were in the process of remodeling it. They' had recently
put the home up for sale. Neither Mrs. Ledestich or the couple's infant daughter
were home at the time of the fire; Mr. Ledestich was home and sustained minor
injuries. The cause of the fire has not been determined. (Photo by Leslie Roberts)


member jury and the case is
expected to end today. The death
penalty will not be sought in the
case.
During jury selection Monday
morning, Asst. State Attorney
Richard Combs quizzed possible
jurors on whether they would
have a problem convicting a
person of murder if that person
was not at the scene. He carefully
explained that Florida law holds
an accomplice equally
responsible for a crime if it is
proven that they were an active
and willing participant.
Powell said the idea of the
robbery was Cannon's. The initial
target was not William Moses
Wilson but his brother, Aaron
Wilson. Powell said they felt
Wilson had money because he
once paid him $20 to mow his

Gadsden County officials

hold retreat at library


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
In an effort to make itself a better board
and to operate more efficiently, the board of
county commissioners last Friday held a
half-day retreat at the Bill McGill Public
Library.
Led by facilitator Dr. Larry Gross,
commissioners first talked about leadership
and management and what the two mean.
"What is leadership?" asked Gross.
After discussing the techniques of
understanding, commissioner Eugene Lamb
said leadership is based on understanding
and that often people must make sure they
heard what they thought they heard.
Gross agreed saying that sometimes, when
people make a statement, it is a good idea to


repeat the statement to make sure iLthe
speaker and the listener are undei standing
each other.
There was also a lively group discussion
on verbal and non-verbal communications.
Gross said that, especially for elected
officials, it is sometimes more important to
detect non-verbal communications. "Fifty-
five percent of the communication that goes
on between people in non-verbal," he said,
citing an example that an individual may
answer a question with a negative answer,
but the body language may contradict the
answer.
E-mails, he said, are the culprit in a lot of
communications mix-ups because there is a

A


bountiful harvest


4i* **'


A loaded orange tree is a common sight in central Florida but not so much this far north. But
Quincy resident Sandy Davenport's "bitter-sweet" orange tree is loaded this year. He said the
fruit makes a delicious drink but is tangy like a lemon. He also uses the fruit juice to marinate
meats for grilling and broiling. The tree, at the end of Martin Luther King, Jr. Blvd. where it
intersects with South Adams Street, has made a few drivers do a double take at what appears at
first to be a mirage. Davenport has four more smaller orange trees, but says he enjoys sharing the
"bitter-sweets" with neighbors and friends.




MDA seeks volunteers



for 2007 Summer camp


The Muscular Dystrophy
Association is searching for
summer camp volunteers who
are looking for a rewarding and
memorable experience.
Volunteer counselors are needed
to help young people with neu-
romuscular diseases enjoy a fun-
filled MDA summer camp July
6 13, 2007 at Cape San Blas, in
Port St. Joe.
Volunteer counselors must be at
least 16 years old and able to lift
and care for a young person
between the ages of 6 and 21.
Each counselor becomes a com-
panion to a camper with a neu-
romuscular disease. Counselors
help their campers with daily
activities such as eating, bathing
and dressing, and in recreational
activities such as arts and crafts,
swimming and horseback rid-
ing.
"MDA summer camp is the
event that our kids think about
year-round," said MDA
Regional Coordinator Lisa Heil.
"For one week out of the year,
they get to be in an environment


where having a neuromuscular
disease is the norm, not the
exception. They have the chance
to make friendships and memo-
ries that will last a lifetime."
Heil noted that volun-
teer counselors often say camp
is a magical and memorable
time. "It's such a family envi-
ronment and a time to make
friends for life," she said. "It
truly is the best week of the
year!"
At no charge to families, MDA's
summer camp program serves
more than 4,000 campers
nationwide in some 90 week-
long sessions. Last year, over
4,700 volunteers helped make
this all possible.
To obtain a volunteer applica-
tion or learn about other ways to
support MDA's summer camp
program, call the local MDA
office in Tallahassee, FL at
(850) 681-6763, or call (800)
572-1717. More information
about summer camp volunteers
can be found on the MDA sum-
mer camp pages at


www.mdausa.org/clinics/camp/i
ndex.cfm.
MDA is a voluntary health
agency working to defeat more
than 40 neuromuscular diseases
through programs of worldwide
research, comprehensive servic-
es, and far-reaching professional
and public health education.
The Association's programs are
funded almost entirely by indi-
vidual private contributors.


Volunteers honored


Volunteers at the University
of Florida's North Florida
Research and Education
Center-Quincy were honored
at an Appreciation Luncheon
on January 9th. These individ-
uals donated more than 640
hours working with magno-
lias, hydrangeas, ornamental

Photos of historic Midway needed


The City of Midway is pleased to
announce that it is conducting a
historic survey project of its his-
toric community. To assist with
this project, the City is seeking
copies of photographs that can be
used to help document the commu-
nity's history. These photographs
are visual evidence of Midway's
past. Photographs taken fifty years
ago or more in Midway of its
schools, churches, stores, and com-
mrunity events, any utility, com-
miercial or industrial buildings,
landscapes, roads, road-building,
the railroad, etc, are needed.
Photographs of houses built before
1957 will be especially useful to
this project. Any documentation


such-as deeds, surveys, and build-
ing permits or documentation of
the building's date of construction
and who the builder was, will also
be very useful.
Some of the photographs may be
selected for publishing, with the
owner's permission, in the survey
final report. The report will be on
file at Midway City Hall and the
Florida Department of State,
Division of Historic Resources. It
is the hope of the City Council that,
with the submission of these pho-
tographs, a photographic archive
of Midway can be created and
used by future researchers and for
all to enjoy and to help remember
the community's rich and unique


past.
The survey consultant will be at
Midway City Hall to collect and/or
to make copies of your photo-
graphs and to discuss the project
with you on Tuesday, February 6,
beginning at 10 AM. If you have
questions, you can contact the sur-
vey consultant, Beth LaCivita,
Historic Florida Consulting, by
calling 850 561-0317. The survey
has been financed in part with his-
toric preservation grant assistance
provided by the Bureau of Historic
Preservation, Division of
Historical Resources, Florida
*Department of State, assisted by
the Florida Historical
Commission.

:"We had a game this past week
but were not able to compete
because several of the girls had
low grades and injuries, so we
called it off," he said.
:"It's not about TB. No, I don't
see how TB was involved."
:Thompson acknowledged that
several Taylor High parents had
concerns about the EGHS TB
diagnosis.
I"We had a couple of' parents
concerned here, so we contacted
our health department and they
contacted (Gadsden County


Health Department) and they
were comforted," he said.
The most common symptoms
of TB include fever, cough, night
sweats and weight loss.
Anyone exhibiting those
symptoms should contact a
doctor and the Gadsden County
Health Department. Tuberculosis
is a treatable disease; most who
contract it fully recover by
following a regimen .of
medicines specifically designed
to treat it.
The Gadsden County Health


Department charges $10 for the
TB skin test.

Correction
In an article in last week's
edition on the housing forum a
#typographical error was made.
The sentence, which was a quote
from Brenda Holt, read: "1 spoke
with a man a few says ago." The
"s" should have been a "d" and
the word should have been,
"days" instead of "says."

Chamber breaks ground for


Redeemed Inc. at Wilson House


On January 10, 2006 the
Gadsden County Chamber of
Commerce hosted the Ground
Breaking for Redeemed Inc. at
the Wilson House located at 319
South 10th Street in Quincy.
Redeemed under the leadership
of Annie Britt- Berry received
financial support from the First
Presbyterian Church of Quincy
and private donations purchased
the Wilson House in 2002.
This house was acquired with
a two- fold purpose, 1) the sal-
vation of a historic African
American home. The Wilson


House, the oldest house remain-
ing in Pepper Hill, once served
as a boarding house for single
female teachers who taught at
the Stevens School. 2) The
house will serve as a transition
home for women recently
released from jail or prison.
Redeemed will provide staff
around the clock to offer struc-
ture and services that will target
areas that often cause recidi-
vism such as substance abuse,
job readiness, family and child
reunification.
The residents- will also


receive other life skills to pre-
pare them for re-entry into soci-
ety.
David Gardner, Executive
Director, Gadsden County
Chamber of Commerce said,
"This type of project needs the
backing of the businesses and
citizens. Annie Berry is a shin-
ing star in the County. She is
trying to help those who society
leaves behind. The Gadsden
County Chamber will help
Redeemed in anyway possible
to make the Wilson House a
success."


TDS closes to walk-ins


by LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor

TDS Telecom closed its doors to
walk-in traffic last week, spawn-
ing rumors that the company
had been sold.
Net oso, said Frank Holcomb,
TDS market manager for
Florida and St. Marys, Ga.
"As far as I'm aware, that's just a
rumor that popped up because
the office is closing to walk-in
traffic," Holcomb said. "And
any sales would be announced
to shareholders before the media
anyway."
The Quincy TDS office is the
only TDS office in the state of
Florida, Holcomb said, although
there are 110 office sites
throughout the U.S.
The decision to close the office -
which will maintain its current
office staff for customer service
- was made after TDS headquar-
ters assessed the office was not
conducting much new business
face-to-face. Most of the people
going into the office were pay-
ing bills but not asking for new
phone service, Holcomb said.
"Very few people came in to do
business face to face," he said.
"We had a lot of traffic just on
certain days but most of the time
it was pretty slow."
TDS employees will now have
more time to answer customers'
questions and take care of other
customer-related issues,
Holcomb said.
"We're taking the existing
employees and focusing them
where they need to be focused,
which is on the customer," he
said.
Customers have a variety of
options when it comes to paying
their telephone bills: the drop
box located in the TDS parking
lot will remain in use, and cash-
paying customers can make pay-
ments at Premier Bank.
Customers also have the option
to pay online via check, debit or
credit card, as well as sign up for
automatic bill payment.
The company will continue to
offer DSL to residents of
Greensboro, Gretna and Quincy

The Fourth Annual Gadsden
County Humane Society Golf
Tournament is just around the
corner, and organizers hope it
will bring in much-needed fund-
ing for their cause.
"It's getting bigger and better
every year," said Michele
Vaught, president of the society.
"This is one of our major
fundraisers that and the garage
sale, which we had for the first
time this year."
The tournament is March 17 -
St. Patrick's Day at the Quincy
Golf Club. Tee time is 8 a.m.
and registration begins at 7 a.m.
The event will feature a hole-in-
one contest sponsored by
Havana Ford, which is offering
as a prize to the person who hits
a hole in one a 2007 model vehi-
cle.
Vaught said last year's tourna-
ment brought in close to $3,000
for the humane society, which
relies orn volunteer workers and
donations to house, feed and
provide vet care for abandoned
and injured animals.
"We're hoping to have 18
teams of four, which would be
72 players," Vaught said. "We're
more than happy to have more
than 72 we can double up on
holes if we need to."
Humane Society organizers
plan to tie St. Patrick's Day into
the event, either through the
food served at the buffet lunch
after the tournament or in items
handed out during the giveaway
portion of the day. Raffle tickets
for door prizes will be available
for purchase during lunch.
Pre-registration costs are $250
per team and $62.50 per individ-
ual; registration the day of the
event is $300 per team and $75
per individual.
The tournament format will be
a four-person scramble.
Handicaps will be totaled for the


SClary's Bail
ond Agency

team, and 20 percent of that total
handicap will be applied to the
team score, according to a
Humane Society brochure on
the tournament.
If no handicap is established,
average scores will be substitut-
ed. Individual handicap cannot
exceed 36.
Team prizes will be awarded
to the teams with the three low-
est net scores. First prize is $400
per team;, second prize, $200 per
team; third prize, $100 per team.

Investigation nets drug arrests


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

Like so many links in a chain,
several mid-level drug arrests
were made in December and
January following a month long
investigation by the Gadsden
County Sheriffs Office, the
Florida Department of Law
Enforcement, the Tallahassee
Police Department and the Leon
County Sheriffs Office.
All of the arrests are connected
and began unraveling for the drug
dealers with the arrest of Richard
Footman, formerly of Gadsden
County, in December. Footman
was awaiting trial on drug charges
when he allegedly beat a man who
was to be a witness in his drug
case and fled to Austin, TX. He
was later arrested there by U.S.
Marshals and brought back to
Leon County.
It was during the Footman inves-
tigation that authorities happened
upon Windsor Gaspar of Miami.
He was arrested for trying to sell
an undercover agent three ounces
of cocaine for $2,000. Gaspar, a
Tallahassee Community College
student, was suspected of supply-
ing Footman.
When arrested in Gadsden
County, where he attempted to
make the deal, authorities also
confiscated a vehicle, two cellular
phones, and a .45 Glock pistol. He
is in the Gadsden County jail.
The Gaspar investigation led to
the arrest of Gyvenson Josil of
Miami and Richard Crawford, Jr.
of Boston, MA. The pair, now liv-
ing in Tallahassee, arranged to
meet at a "stash house" (used only
for the buying and selling of
drugs) to sell two ounces of
cocaine to a confidential inform-
ant.
When arrested the two had in
their possession more than 18


ounces of
po wder -e
cocaine, a ',
firearm ,
$2,000 in
cash and a '.
vehicle, all of i
which were r-
confiscated. Gaspar
They were
taken to the Leon County where
they posted $25,000 each.
Lt. Jim Corder of the Gadsden
County Sheriffs Office said Josil
and Crawford are also believed to
be suppliers of cocaine to dealers
in Gadsden County.
With the
help of the
G CSO ,
FDLE, TPD,
and the
Florida
Department. )
of Parole and
Probation,
authoritiesalso Crawford
arrested who
they think maybe a mid-level mar-
ijuana supplier to Gadsden
County. Charles Busby of
Tallahassee, formerly of Gadsden
County, was detained when a tip-
ster notified authorities that Busby
has a large
amount of
marijuana in
the trunk of
his car and -
that he could ..
be found at
the Leon '
C ou n ty Busby
Probation
office.
"He was going to check in with
his probation officer," said Corder.
When his vehicles was searched
more than five pounds of the ille-
gal drug was found in the trunk.
Not only was he arrested for the
drugs, an additional charge of vio-


lation of probation was tacked on.
He is in the Leon County Jail with-
out bail.
Victor Rodriguez of Mt. Pleasant
was arrested at a local night club in
December for possession of pow-
der cocaine with intent to sell.
Through one of the above investi-
gations, authorities learned that
Rodriguez received 2-3 kilos of
powder cocaine per month and
was supplying several areas
throughout the county on a week-
ly basis.
Rodriguez told authorities they
could search his home, undoubt-
edly thinking they could never
find his stash. Investigators found
two ounces of powder cocaine
bured in the back yard under a fire
pit covered with leaves. GCSO
investigators
also confis-
cated a GMC
pickup truck,
t~ ounces of
p o w der
cocaine, sev- .* i
eral guns, and .
$2,600 in Rodriguez
cash. He was
on probation when arrested and is
currently in the county jail without
bond.
Just recently an Attapulgus, GA
man, Bernard Lawrence Sapp,
was arrested in Quincy after he
negotiated with an undercover
agent to trade a four-wheeler for
collateral on a half-kilo of powder
cocaine. The Super-Lube employ-
ee was arrested and has since post-
ed a $25,000 bond. The four-
wheeler was confiscated along
with the vehicle he used in the
transaction.
Following a two-month investi-
gation Cedric Preston of Quincy
was arrested on January 19 and
charged with trafficking in
cocaine. He was taken to the coun-
ty jail where he posted $30,000


bond.
Sheriff Morris Young said that
the sale of drugs will not be toler-
ated anywhere in Gadsden
County. "We .
are working
all over the
county but /
we're concen-
trating in and
around *'.*. "
Havana,
Midway, Sapp
Gretna and
Chattahoochee, and there will be
zero tolerance for anyone who
buys or sells drugs," he said.
Lt. Corder credits the success of
the operations to the cooperation
of the different law enforcement
agencies working together across
jurisdictional lines. "We especially
thank the citizens who have con-
tacted the GCSO drug unit with
information of suspicious activi-
ty," he said.
Anyone who has any informa-
tion regarding illegal drug activity
is asked to contact Lt. Corder at
850-875-8847 or 850-251-5519 or
Inv. Ulysses Jenkins at 850-875-
2855 or 850-251-4306. All calls

by ALICE DU PONT

Six vehicles burned on Interstate

being transported by a 2000 Volvo
truck. Part of the westbound lane
of the interstate was closed until
the fire was extinguished.
According to a report released


by the Florida Highway Patrol,
Koby Lemarcus Knight, 32, of

ing an auto transport with seven
vehicles when he saw smoke com-
ing from the rear of the trailer.

gency lane and discovered the
smoke was coming from the right


rear tandems of the trailer. He tried
unsuccessfully to put out the fire
with the help of other truck driv-
ers. He subsequently disconnected
the trailer from the truck.
The fire was put out by the
Chattahoochee, Sycamore, and
Greensboro fire departments.
Only one vehicle was not burned.

Local ministers prepare for FCAT


'pep rally'


by LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor

A group of Gadsden County
ministers is putting faith into
action.
Alarmed by juvenile delin-
quency trends and the academic
struggles some local youths
endure, the "Faith in Gadsden"
group is plAnning a pep rally of
sorts to help students prepare
for the Florida Writes portion of
the Florida Comprehensive
Assessment Test Feb. 6-7.
"We want to give them some


encouragement," said Titus
Deas Jr., Pastor of Deliverance
Temple Ministries in Hardaway.
"We thought as pastors we
ought to really step in."
The group of around eight
local pastors started meeting in
October to brainstorm ways in
which they could contribute to
the community. For starters,
they will offer a free movie Feb.
3 to elementary students prepar-
ing for the test. The movie,
"Akeelah and the Bee," is
scheduled to be shown at
Chattahoochee Elementary Feb.


3 from noon to 4 p.m.
"The children are a key com-
ponent of what we're doing but
we definitely want to get our
parents and citizens involved,"
Deas said.
Ministers involved in the
group include: Pastor Matthew
Carter of Beulah Hill
Missionary Baptist Church, in
Gretna; Pastor Earl Germany
Jones of Deliverance Temple of
the First Born, in
Chattahoochee; Pastor Willie
Lamb of Lamb's Temple of
God, in Midway; and Pastor


Reginald Washington of the
Agape Christian Center, in
Quincy.
FCAT preparation is just the
beginning; the team of ministers
has much bigger plans.
"We want to create a place so
people can come to one place
and receive what they need,"
Deas said. "As churches, we're
pulled on from all facets of the
community ... in this particular.
group, there are no superstars,
there are no Michael Jordans.
We just bring all to the table we
have to bear. We feel like we


have to step up."
Some of the needs the minis-
ters see within their communi-
ties are affordable housing,
accessible healthcare, improved
literacy and teen pregnancy pre-
vention.
"Affordable housing is an
issue. We deal with people who
need housing that's a key con-
cern," Deas said. "I want to see
us do a better job with race rela-
tions. I think we all have an
obligation to come together to
make a difference in our com-
munity, whether we are white,


black or Hispanic."
Faith in Gadsden is open to
new members. For more infor-
mation on membership or what
the group provides, contact
Deas at 445-2170.
"The 'I have a dream' speech
- we decided to bring that into
action, to bring people together
and make it a reality," Deas
said. "We welcome all pastors
who have a similar passion and
want to encourage community
growth. We do have faith in
God we also have faith in
Gadsden County."

Charity begins at home


I have no doubt that there are good
people out there doing good things to
help others. But I have noticed in the
past year or so that more and more
people are begging for money for causes
like "battered women" and "abused
children".
Just this weekend, on a trip to the
local Wal-mart, I noticed two men
outside the store asking for money. On a
handmade sign the appeal was to help
"battered women."
For the past ten years or more, I have
volunteered to work with Refuge House.
I have helped with programs as well as
fundraisers, so I am well aware of the
need right here in our own community.
I approached the men and asked them
which battered women's shelter they
were affiliated with in the area. Out of
the corner of my eye, I noticed the
plastic jug was almost full of money,
paper money.
Of course, I introduced myself and
handed them a business card..They
became a little stand-offish when I asked
them which battered women they served.
I told them about the work of the Refuge
House and asked them how many local
women they served.
One man began to talk about how God
sends them out to help everyone. I
reminded them that the Bible also states
that charity begins at home and we had
enough problems here with our own
women suffering from battery and that
our citizens didn't need to send money to
Geneva, AL, (more than a two hour
drive from here) which is where they
claim to have come from to collect
donations.
They gave me the name of their
church, the King Jesus Church, led by


i nker down

with

KIes


Pastor Mary Dozier. I called her and
after I explained to her several times
about her members down here asking for
money, she finally said; "Yes,,yes, that's
right, they are in, did you say Quincy?" I
didn't get much more information from
her about just who these battered women
are they served. From our limited
conversation, (she kept telling me she
couldn't give out information on. the
phone) it turns out that they mostly take
in overflow battered women from the
House of Ruth Shelter in Dothan, AL.
She invited me to call the Chief of
Police in Geneva, AL. if I wanted more
information and if I wanted to know of
their good works.'
I called, and Chief Frankie Lindsey,
through a dispatcher, said he would
rather not comment on Mary Dozier or
her King Jesus Church. I asked if
battered women in Geneva were sent to
the King Jesus Shelter and the answer
was "no."
Last year I encountered several people
outside the local Winn-Dixie soliciting
money for a drug program. After asking
a few pointed questions, I learned that
the drug program was actually in Tampa.
If a person with a drug problem in
Quincy could get to Tampa, they would,
they said, take them in if they had a bed.
All of these folks say about the same
thing, they claim to serve anyone and
that the Lord has sent them to Quincy to
collect money.
I'm not saying they are or are not
legitimate.
But before you plunk your hard-
earned cash in a bucket or jar for a cause
that sounds good, just ask those
collecting a few questions about where
your dollars are going.

Nicholson closed?


Say it's not so


Well, count me in as one of the many
area residents dismayed at the closing
of the Nicholson Farmhouse.
It had such warmth, especially at:
night with lights strung along the front
overhang of the restaurant and low
lights inside outbuildings and mule-
pulled wagon rides that made it easy to
imagine you'd stepped back in time.
And the food? Ach. You'll not find
better-prepared scallops sauteed in
garlic and butter with a light dusting of
herbs.
They had the best iced tea in town
and prime rib that would make a
vegetarian's mouth water.
We took our son there for dinner
when he was around 2 an important
rite of passage in which he had the
opportunity to garner the attention of an
entire room by dinging his spoon
against his (first) ceramic plate. Until
then, he'd been restricted to dining on
plastic or paper plates to cut down on
trips to the ER, primarily. This idea that
he could eat off a real plate was both
appealing and unexpected. He was fond
of the warm bread served with meals I
suspect because they so easily became
airborne and once sent some whizzing
just past a waitress' ear. (Sorry about
that, guys.)

It was, and I understand, always has
been, a spot that encourages
socialization: long, sturdy wooden
tables lined with equally sturdy wooden
chairs in close proximity to each other
gave folks the opportunity to stop and
chat with other diners.
My son picked right up on this,
eating three green beans, half a piece of
bread and a bite or two of steak before
hopping out of his chair to wander
around the room and give people
completely immersed in their meals the
chance to make his acquaintance.
Which I guess was a nice if not
necessarily appreciated gesture,
considering it required people he
wandered up to to stop eating and
converse with him.
I'm not sure what plans the
prospective buyer has for the place I'r
told she's interested in "preserving its
historic integrity" but that leaves room
for a lot of possibilities.
In the decade or so it was open, the
place served as a site for weddings,
meetings, Christmas parties, birthday
,parties and comfortable dining.
It closed Dec. 23 and only time will tell
what's in store.
One thing's for certain: It will be
sorely missed by many.

Checks and Balances
Dear Editor:
The U.S. Constitution is a plan for governing our
country. In that plan the Constitution states that Local,
State, and Federal Government must have a system in
place that promotes "checks and balances." However, the
citizens of Gadsden County are painfully aware that our
City Government has no "checks and balances."
Please check the hiring practice of the City
Commissions:
1. To get hired one must be from Tallahassee
2. Be an individual with undesirable traits
I am a firm believer in giving second chances. However,
individuals with impeccable records should be hired first.
Then and only then should individuals with least than
desirable traits be considered.
I have been asked several times "How can the City
Commissioners do what ever they want?" and my reply
"We citizens allow them."
CITIZENS PLEASE VOTE INTELLIGENT IN ALL
ELECTIONS.

The Parable of the Ball Team

Behold, a ball team went forth
Sto play a game of ball. Just as the
umpire was saying, "Batter up!"
the catcher for the home team
baseman arrived and took his
place. The center fielder and the
second baseman didn't arrive
until the second inning. The first
baseman didn't come at all, but
later sent his regrets saying he
had to go to a chicken dinner at
Aunt's Mary's. The third baseman
likewise failed to show up having
been up late the night before and
he preferred to spend the day in
bed. The left fielder was away
visiting another ballgame across
town. The shortstop was present,
but he left his glove at home.
Verily, when the pitcher got to
the pitcher's mound, he looked
around to see his teammates and
lo, his heart was heavy when he
saw so many empty places in the
lineup. The game had been
announced and the visitors were
already in the stands to see the
game. There was nothing left for
him to do but go ahead and pitch
and hope for the best. So the
pitcher tightened up his belt, and
did his level best to put one over
the plate. But for some strange
reason he just couldn't find the
groove. Some of his teammates
began to ride him for wild pitches
and loud "Boos" began to come
from the stands.
At the close of the game, the
home team (what there was of it)
was mercilessly beaten. After
hearing of the disgraceful defeat,
the rest of the team decided that a
new pitcher should be hired,


because it must have been the
poor pitching that had lost the
game.
Behold! A preacher went forth
to preach... but that's another ,

County considers pre-development loan program


By ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

This is the second' part of a
two-partseries about the county's
efforts to aid citizens in obtaining
a(ffrdabhle housing.

The county's staff is looking
for new and innovative ways to
make more new homes available
to citizens. One way they have
embarked upon is called a pre-
development loan program.
Here's what they are studying:
The Florida Housing Finance
Corporation will loan up to
$500,000 to the county for pre-
development which is payable


when lots are released to the
home buyer. The interest rates are
the best around at about only one
percent.
"This is a non-competitive
program and counties may apply
year round," said Farnita
Saunders, Community
Development Director for the
county. "Gadsden County can use
the money for acquisition of land,
engineering, construction
plans/architectural design, sur-
veys, title searches and more."
The benefits of such a pro-
gram include: below market
interest rates, funds don't have to
be repaid until the lots are sold,
minimal application fees, $600


upon submission of the grant
application, $600 for undlerwrit-
ing, and best of all, there is a
$1,200 credit given toward the
loan if funded.
"So actually, we get all of the
money back that we put in,"
Saunders said.
Other benefits include, but are
not limited to: Reduced land
costs (price controls), builders in
the pool may purchase lots,
homes are constructed based on
specific design standards, homes
will be sold to Gadsden County
residents, and borrowers can
obtain affordable mortgage
homes from the lenders' pool.
If the county is unsuccessful


in obtaining the loan, all is not
loss, Saunders says. One alterna-
tive to land acquisition is county-
owned land for development.
Some in county government have
been pushing for the county to
purchase land. Many govern-
ments throughout the country
have been purchasing property for
years to help its citizens. The
county sells the land to citizens to
recoup their funds and citizens
can purchase the property at a
lower cost.
Of course some developers
and land speculators dislike the
idea, and feel that it puts them in
unfair competition with govern-
ments. To make this process eas-


ier, Saunders recommended that
the county establish partnerships
with lenders, builders, and real-
tors as each entity has a separate
responsibility.
Lenders are to ensure home-
buyers are "credit ready" and
have the income or ability to pay,
there are no high cost loans or
predatory lending, and there are
no stated income loans. Builders
are to construct homes affordable
to buyers, agree to build at cost
plus a stated percentage, and
limit those design features that
drive up the cost such as granite
countertops, etc. And, realtors
agree to learn the process of
Gadsden County through specific


training sessions designed for
realtors, become familiar with the
affordable mortgage product
offered by the county, and allow
sufficient time for closing.
Saunders said that through
this process, the homebuyer is at
the center and surrounded by the
Board of County Commissioners,
realtors, lenders, builders, non-
profit organizations, and other
interested parties which will lead
to desired incomes.
"That's putting our citizens in
quality homes that they can
afford," she said.
For more information on
housing, contact Saunders at 875-
8659.


Chattahoochee officer addresses Havana officials about traffic safety


by LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor

Havana Town Council mem-
bers picked up a few new facts
Tuesday morning during their
regular meeting namely, that
there is a Gadsden County
Community Traffic Safety
Team.
Chattahoochee police officer
Jim Hamilton addressed the
board Tuesday to let them know
about the Safety Team's meet-
ings and its goals.
"We promote traffic safety,
mainly through education and
road improvements," said
Hamilton. "We are also trying to
do some sidewalk projects.
Right now, Gadsden County has
five sidewalks they're working


on. I'm just here to make people
aware we do exist. We can
obtain (Department of
Transportation) funding for
projects pertaining to road safe-
ty, sidewalk safety and pedestri-
an safety."
The Gadsden County
Community Traffic Safety Team
meets monthly at the Gadsden
County school bus yard off
Martin Luther King Boulevard
in Quincy.
SOne of the best ways to get a
sidewalk repaired or a road
striped, Hamilton said, is to
show up at those meetings.
"One of the way projects get
prioritized is members of the
team giving input. Currently,
there are no Havana members,"
he said. "It doesn't cost anything


Chlitt


other than your time to come."
Hamilton said a Traffic
Safety Team in Jackson County
was able to cut the number of


wrecks on a rural, unstriped road
by 75 percent by painting
stripes on it to enable motorists
to better see.


"As long as you meet the
guidelines, the DOT money is
there," he said.
The next meeting of the
Gadsden County Community
Traffic Safety Team is Feb. 6 at
10 a.m. at the school bus barA
conference room. Topics of dis-
cussion will include traffic safe-
ty, status of construction proj-
ects and any other concerns of
people in attendance.
For more information, con-
tact Hamilton at 663-4383.
Tuesday's meeting was brief.
Council members voted to
approve a resolution calling for
Florida legislators to support
municipal self-determination,
uphold home-rule powers of
municipalities and relief for
municipalities struggling with


the costs of repairing infrastruc-
ture, housing and employment
bases in areas hard-hit by natu-
ral disaster.
The resolution also asks leg-
islators for relief from increases
in property insurance and
"inequities in the property tax
system".
In other business, council
members approved a proclama-
tion designating the week of
Feb. 11-17 as Hazardous
Weather Awareness Week, and
approved a request by Town
Manager Howard McKinnon to
dispose of obsolete equipment.
The council also approved a
minor change to an agreement it
made two years ago with the
Capital Regional Planning
Transportation Agency.

Lawson was unable to attend the
meeting.
Richardson welcomed and
thanked the nearly 50 people who
attended the meeting. "Government
can only work when you're
involved in it," he said.
The delegation is involved in
committee meetings and
Richardson said that he, Coley and
Lawson are members of several
very important and influential
committees. "We're well-placed on
committees- to be able to do
something good," he said.
In the absence of Sheriff Morris
Young, Nancy Gee and Major
James Morgan said Young is in
agreement with the joint legislative
initiatives that have already been
presented to the delegation.
However, overcrowding at the jail
continues to be a major problem.
"As of today, there are 236
inmates in a jail built for 150. We
have eight mentally ill people
waiting for beds at a mental hospital
and they should not be in jail; we
have 60 that have violated

from elected officials and citizens Tuesday night during the
annual Legislative Delegation Meeting.


probation. The inmates pay $2.10 a
day for three meals," Morgan said.
Coley and Richardson said they
were aware of the problem and that
the state is looking for relief od
overcrowded jails.
Property Appraiser Clay
Vanlandingham told the delegation


that citizens need relief from
property taxes and that there is a
dire need for infrastructure if
Gadsden County is going to grow.
He expressed the sentiments of
most of the elected officials in the
room when he said the $50,000
homestead exemption would cause


a lot of problems for the county and
cities alike.
"There are 11,000 households in
the county that are tax exempt (for
the $25,000) or about 15%. With
the $50.000 exemption that would
take 40'71dff the tax rolls," he said.
He asked Richardson and Coley to
vote against he measure.
He was not alone his concerns
were echoed by almost all of the
elected officials and managers in
the audience. County commissioner
Doug Croley asked the delegation
to help find money to shore up
some of the old and unsafe bridges
throughout the county. Some of the
structures were built in the 1940s
and 1950s, he said. "I don't care
how many paved roads you've got.
If you can't get across the creek,
you're in trouble." he said.
Commission chairman Brenda
Holt reiterated the joint, issues that
have already been transmitted to the
delegation and requested the
support of the delegation.
Several others spoke to the
delegation, including the

high percentage of error when
an individual cannot hear the
intonation in the voice as when,
for instance, a telephone is used.
Commissioners also agreed to
strive to reach a consensus on
most issues even if they do not
always agree. For the good of the
entire county, commissioners will
try to achieve common
understanding on issues, accept
the opinions of others and be
willing to support the majority's
opinion.
In high performance boards,


consensus is the number one
priority. That is followed by
compromise, which means
someone must win a little and
lose a little.
"When there is competition,
someone must win and lose. The
difference is in how strongly you
feel about an issue," Gross said.
He urged commissioners to
avoid conflict over personal
issues: "There may be a
difference of opinion but it
doesn't have to be personal," he
said.


Finally, Gross gave the board
the 10 high performance
principles that will make them
more effective:
* It is okay to have idea
opponents, it is not okay to have
personal opponents.
* Attempt to promote the best
solution and not win the
discussion.
* Differences are not deficits but
only to be managed.
* Primary change agents are
groups not individuals
* Learn from the past but don't


be trapped by it.
* Clear communication is the
key to common understanding '
* Have a high tolerance for
uncertainty concerning
information. '
* The enemy is complexity;''
* Individuals and groups decide
issues based on their values. ,
* Anger and fear are managed
constructively. o.,

Gross has conducted for. the

EAST GADSDEN CAPTURES
DISTRICT TOP SEED WITH SAT-
URDAY NIGHT WIN OVER
RICKARDS
It was a no more tickets sold night
in the East Gadsden Gym Saturday
night as a standing room only house
saw the host Jaguars down Rickards
61-50 to give them an 8-2 district
record and the number one seed in
their upcoming district tournament.
East Gadsden got away to the win
by holding Rickards scoreless in the
third quarter and then building up a 28
point lead mid-way quarter four.
Sam McLaurin was the main pain
for Rickards as he clawed the Raiders
for 14 points and 19 rebounds.
Leonardo Deloney added 10 points for


East Gadsden helping them to get their
record to 19-3 overall.
The Jaguars had defeated Florida
High in a Thursday road game 60-47
with McLaurin again having a double-
double with 16 points and 18 boards.
Rashard McGill scored 14 for East
Gadsden in that game.
The number 4 Class 4A state
ranked Jaguars played at FAMU
Tuesday night and at Madison County
Wednesday. They close the regular sea-
son Friday at West Gadsden.
They draw a bye in the District 2-
4A tournament that will be played in

WGHS gets two wins to secure No. 1 seed in tournament

,Wewahitchka with the top seed.
The Panthers earned that distinc-
n by knocking off Gulf County


foes Wewahitcka and Port St. Joe
last week.
The win over Wewahitchka
came Tuesday night in Wewa 89-
59 with four Panthers hitting
double-figures. Larry Jackson


scored 21, Ricardo Marlow 20,
Rashard-McMillan 13, and Jessie
Winbush 12 in the easy win.
Their win at home Friday
against Port St. Joe was anything
but easy.


Leading 34-27 after three
quarters the Panthers saw the
Sharks spring toward a tie before
holding on to a 51-46 win.
Marlow was the only double-
figure scorer for West Gadsden in


that game but the 12 rebounds L.
Jackson pulled down were
important.
The win gave the Panthers a
14-8 record and they will play
their final regular season game


Friday hosting county rival East
Gadsden.
Another Wewahitchka trip is
in store for West Gadsden

Buzzer-beater defeats CP


At this time, the Specks out
bit the Bass, that seemed to be the
!case all week long. There was
some whang-dang-dilly catches
.of Specks in shallow water, some
Ion Minnows & some on Jigs.
'The Jigs had some 1? & 2 lbs.
Specks in their cooler as they
came in to the dock.
We had several "Blue Days"


this week so far as Bass is con-
cerned. David Mock on Tuesday
had 11 Bass that totaled 16 lbs.
using Carolina Rig in 14 to 17
foot of water. That was a great
catch of fish compared to what
we have been having.
Bass continued slow Thursday
when 47 boats launched at
Wingate's. Most were getten


ready for the Fishermen For The
Hungry, who turns each $1.00
into $23.00 for food for the hun-
gry. This is a great cause and 40
boats turned out in 33 weather to
fish the event. Just as the event
was over it started to rain, I think
I would have froze to death if I
hadn't went home & got under
the cover.

has lifted Mom before the
Throne. No one can honor me
more than that.
Shirley looks and talks like Floy
Coleman, a blessed lady from the
church 1 grew up in back home.
What a precious reminder!
Benton, Bro. Joey and some of
the others often gather around the
microphone and cut down on,
"Each day I'll do a golden deed
by helping those who are in
need......" Or, "I'm going to take
a trip on that old gospel ship......"
You can't get those songs just
anywhere you know.....
Listen, I'm expecting revival to
break out any second.
Mrs. McGill is the group
activity leader. She needs to be a


little more out going! I'm afraid
she is going to fall asleep at one
of the meetings! She can get us
moving, praying, testifying and
thinking.....pretty much all at the
same time. And you can't believe
the laughter. Real laughter!
I sit there most Tuesdays and
think, my goodness if the whole
world could catch a glimpse of
this! These folks don't realize
how special they are! They don't
care what church I go to. They
care that I'm in church. They
don't care what I do for a living.
They are interested in what I'm
doing for the Kingdom. They
don't care where I came from.
They are worried about where
I'm going.


People, these folks aren't acting
Like Christians or talking like
Christians-they are too busy
being Christians!
You see now why I can't
divulge the name of the church. If
word of this gets out people will
start coming from miles around! I
mean, this is exactly what the
entire world is searching for! It
could cause a stampede to North
West Florida. They'd have to
build on to the fellowship hall,
enlarge the parking lot and throw:
more chickens on the fire.....
I might have to share one of my
dessert

Respectfully,
Kes


A real monster
The Twisted Dragon, billed as the only Corvette monster truck in the world by its owner, Rob
French, roared into town Tuesday afternoon. French, of Boston, Ga., stopped at All-Tech
Southeast in Quincy on his way to a race in Nebraska. Bev and Larry Kilmer are sponsoring the
monster truck owner and driver, and furnished the powder coating for the truck. "That beauti-
ful chassis?" French said. "It was done right here." French has around $250,000 invested in the
truck, including sponsorships, and will compete in 42 shows this year on the Checkered Flag
Productions Winter National circuit, finishing in April in Pocatello, Idaho. Mrs. Kilmer, whose
father, Jessie Jones, was a stockcar race driver, -took a turn Tuesday driving the big, green

grass.
The events that led to Wilson's
death began in June when Powell
said he and Cannon, then 24, sat
around on her front porch talking
about ways to get money. He said
Cannon got the idea of robbery
when one of her father's friends
left his wallet at their home
overnight.
Powell said he and Cannon
discussed ways of getting money
and agreed that robbery was the
best way. First, they needed a gun
to pull off the robbery. Powell said
he told Cannon he knew that a
neighbor Abraham Marshall had a
shotgun and he, with Cannon's full
knowledge, decided to steal the
gun.
"I told her where a gun was and I
was going to get it, so she had a
heads up. My hands were small, I
didn't have to break in," he said.
He said Cannon sat on her porch
as a look-out and told him she
would make a noise if she saw
someone coming.
The only thing he took from
Marshall's home was a shotgun,
which he hid in a Cannon's father's
peanut combine behind her house.
"Yes, she knew it was there
because I told her," Powell said of
Cannon. After he took the shotgun
Powell said he painted it red in an
effort to disguise it.
The next day, Powell said, he
broke into the home of his cousin,
Clifford Byrd, and took three large
glass containers each holding
quarters, nickles and dimes, and
pennies. Each container was so


heavy, Powell said, he could only
carry them as far as the field
behind Byrd's home. That's when
he got Cannon and she drove him
in her car to get the coins. The pair
took the coins to the local Winn-
Dixie, but according to Powell, the
machine was broken and they
drove to Tallahassee to another
store with a change counter.
Powell said it was Cannon's idea
to use the coin counter and her
idea to go to Tallahassee. He said
when the change was counted,
Cannon told him that there was a
"little over $100."
From Tallahassee, Powell said
they drove back to the Quincy
Wal-mart where Cannon bought
shells for the shotgun. "The clerk
wanted to know why she needed a
box of 12-gauge shells and she
told her it was for her Daddy's
birthday," Powell said.
On the evening of August 9,
Powell said he left Cannon's
house, took the red shotgun, got
on his bicycle and rode toward the
Wilson's residence. Once there, he
hid in the bushes until William
Moses Wilson came home. As
Wilson, a Vietnam veteran and
chef at the Leon County Jail,
relaxed with a cigar and a beer in
the back yard, Cannon ran up to
him out of the bushes with the
shotgun.
"He picked up a white pipe and
swung it at me, that's when I
pulled the trigger and it landed on
his face. I shot him before he
could hit me and I grabbed his
wallet. I ran back to my bike and


went to Donna Cannon's house.
She was in the living room and I
gave her the wallet. It was $40 in
the wallet," he said.
He testified he had never seen
the man before and that the man
didn't know him either.
Powell said he and Cannon
discussed using Wilson's credit

cards but that Cannon felt they
might get caught. After the
murder, he said the two didn't talk
much that night but that she told
him to "keep his mouth shut."
Cannon kept his mouth shut for
two years, the case led nowhere
and it became one of the. cold
cases that Sheriff Morris Young
vowed to re-open when he was a
candidate for office.
After a few months, Powell said
what he had done started
bothering him. "I started seeing
things, so I told my mama what
happened. I burned the shotgun
and threw it in the well, I hid the
shells in the hood in my Mama's
room. She found them and threw
them out," he said.
It all came to an end on March
31,2005 when a Quincy police
officer showed up on the Carter-
Parramore Academy campus,
where Powell was a student, and
said he wanted to talk to Cannon.
Cannon said he ran off the campus
and into the arms to FDLE Special
Agent, Jim Biddle.
Later that afternoon he confessed
to Biddle and was arrested for the
murder of a man he'd never seen
before the night he shot him.

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.


-I


*At LOAN VALUE, we make a small profit
anqd 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.

The closing of Nicholson Farmhouse in Havana brings








The end of an er


by LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor

It's been called a Gadsden
County institution, a restaurant
unrivaled and a place where the
past comes alive.
Dec. 23, however, the
Nicholson Farmhouse
Restaurant on Coca Cola Lane
off Highway 12 closed its doors
for good.
Gerald Carpenter, who
bought and ran the restaurant
with his wife Teresa, seven
years ago, said it was time to
hang up his chefs hat and put
on some hiking boots. He plans
to return to the insurance busi-
ness, in which he worked for 21
years before buying
Nicholson's, and spend more
time camping with his 11-year-
old son, Dwayne.
On a sunny Friday morning,
with crows cawing in the back-
ground and a breeze blowing
through dried leaves on banana
trees planted around the place,
Carpenter talked about how he
got into the restaurant business
and why he's getting out.
."I realized right away I had
some big shoes to fill when it
comes to Paul Nicholson," he
said, seated at a dining table in
the now-deserted restaurant.
"My dad had a restaurant and
my granddad had one. I worked
as a cook in New Orleans for a
while. When I was a kid, we
lived directly behind the restau-
rant Carpenter's Steakhouse in
Blountstown and the house
didn't have a kitchen at all. We
ate all our meals in the restau-
rant."
Carpenter briefly excused
himself to corral a mule with a
mind of its own walking
along pathways laid in hand-
hewn brick on the farm years
ago before returning to talk
more about his time as owner
of the Nicholson Farmhouse.
"It's been a lot of fun," he
said. "We've been in the Florida
Trend Top 400 restaurants list
since 1992 made the list every
year."
Carpenter's wife, Teresa,
worked as events coordinator
for the restaurant several years.


The sign announcing the entrance to Nicholson Farmhouse Restaurant is a familiar one to those traveling Highway 12 to and from
Havana, as is the historic marker detailing the accomplishments of Nicholson patriarch Dr. Malcolm Nicholson. Less familiar is the small
sign denoting a garage sale at the restaurant, which closed Dec. 23. (Photo by Leslie Roberts)


The couple also has a daughter,
Nicole, who is a teacher in
Tallahassee.
Ironically, Carpenter shares
the same birthday as Paul
Nicholson Aug. 30.
The Carpenter family soon
learned that running an opera-
tion like the Nicholson
Farmhouse was more than full-
time, it was all-consuming. The
stress led to several health com-
plications for Mrs. Carpenter,
and kept Gerald from spending
the time he wanted to spend
with his family.
"All that had me ripe for an
offer," he said, "and then I got
one. This was like a child it
demanded all the attention and
more. It's very hard to walk
away, but I know it's the best
thing for my family and it's
something we've considered for
a long time. The opportunity

family members to live in the Nicholson Farmhouse. (Photo

made irielf available, and we
took it."
Carpenter won't identify the
prospective buyer, but says it's
a person interested in preserv-
ing. the historical integrity of
the place.

Memories of
Nicholson meals
Regulars at Nicholson
Farmhouse included Floridaz .
State University Head Football
Coach Bobby Bowden, former
state Rep. Bev Kilmer, musi-
cian Billy Dean ("All the wait-
resses went nuts," Carpenter-
noted), Gadsden County
Supervisor of Elections Shirley
Knight and Congressman Allen
Boyd.
"Dining at the Nicholson
Farmhouse Restaurant was like
dining back in time, and I'm
very sad to see this Gadsden
County attraction close its
doors," said Congressman Allen
Boyd (D-FL). "Nicholson
Farmhouse Restaurant was so
special because it maintained a
part of history that many com-
munities have lost or let go. I
know that the traditions of
southern hospitality and excel-
lent food started by my long-
time friend, Paul Nicholson,
will be greatly missed, just as
*he is."
Knight said she and her fam-
ily had a habit of stopping by
Nicholson's on Wednesday
nights after church. They'd
eaten there for around 10 years.
"When I found out they had
closed their doors I was upset,
because we did visit on
Wednesday nights after

church," Knight said.
Her favorite if it's possible
to choose just one at
Nicholsoh's was the grilled
chicken;salad.
"When you have a late meal,
that was a favorite of mine.
Their steaks were good, all of


their food was good. We liked
the boiled peanuts they served
as appetizers. It was a nice,
quiet atmosphere."
Kilmer was equally dismayed
to hear the restaurant had
closed.

Dr. Newberry earns certification


The International Society for
Clinical Densitometry (ISCD)
has announced that Mark A.
Newberry, M.D. of Havana has
recently completed a scientific
course in Bone Densitometry.
Dr. Newberry is a board-certi-
fied family physician who has
provided medical care for
Gadsden County residents for
nearly 13 years. After complet-
ing the ISCD course and pass-
ing a rigorous exam, he has
been recognized as a Certified
Clinical Densitometrist (CCD).
Certification is a demonstration
of proficiency and is required in
some states (not Florida) and by
certain insurance companies.
There are only three other certi-
fied clinicians in the
Tallahassee area.
ISD is a highly respected
nonprofit professional society
representing clinicians and
technologists in more than 40
countries, dedicated to improv-


ing the quality of bone density
testing for osteoporosis, educat-
ing healthcare providers, and
supporting scientific advances.
Osteoporosis, a bone fragili-
ty disorder than can lead to frac-
'ture, is a disease that affects 44
million Americans, causing 1.5
million fractures each year, with
an annual healthcare cost of
about $17 billion. Osteoporotic
fractures can result in chronic
pain, disability, loss of inde-
pendence, and even death. Early
detection of low bone density
before fractures occur is the key
to successful management.
Bone density is easily measured
by an instrument called a bone
densitometer, using DXA (Dual
X-ray Absorptiometry) technol-
ogy. With medications now
available and under develop-
ment, experts feel that osteo-
porosis is a preventable and
treatable disease not an
inevitable part of aging.

B 8 The Gadsden County Times February 1,2007


NICHOLSON from Page B 1


"Obviously, I hate it. Larry
and I went there quite a bit,"
she said. "It's unpretentious and
has a wonderful feel that can't
be duplicated."
Kilmer's favorite? The ever-
popular sweetheart steak,
served with twice-stuffed pota-
toes, green beans and strawber-
ry shortcake for dessert.
Kilmer, who now works with
her husband at All Tech
Southeast in Quincy, said the
two stopped by Nicholson's
every two or three months.


Nicholson roots run deep
,Sarah Adams, 92, remembers
the Nicholson Farmhouse as a
home. Paul Nicholson was her
first cousin, and she visited the
home, where her great-aunt and
her aunt's "two old-maid sis-
ters" lived during the 1920s and
'30s. Adams' great-aunt, Eliza
Thompson, married Joseph
Nicholson.
"We'd go on Sundays for
Sunday dinner after church at
Salem Methodist," Adams said.
Adams also went to the farm-
house after Paul opened his
restaurant there, and says Paul
let no customer go unnoticed.
"If you went there, you saw
him. He saw every customer
before they left. That was one
of the secrets of the success of
it," she said. "He was a family
man and he liked people. I
never ate there again after Paul
died."
Adams says she has mixed
feelings about the restaurant
closing.
"I'd like to see it be a home
again," she said. "It was a very

County. (Photo courtesy Doug Croley)


relaxing place to go because we
saw people we didn't see any
other place."
Gadsden County
Commissioner Doug Croley is
also related to the Nicholson
family. The farmhouse, built in
1828, was his great-great-great
grandfather's house on his
mother's side. Croley was with
his cousin when Paul Nicholson
was killed in a wreck while on
a dove-hunting trip to Argentina
in 1999.
After the accident, Paul's
widow, Ann Nicholson, sold the
property to the Carpenters.
"The Nicholson Farmhouse
itself represents one of the ear-
liest homes built in the county,"
Croley said. "Archibald and
Cathleen Nicholson were the
last two family members to live
in the house they had no chil-
dren, no heirs. (Archibald's) sis-
ter was married to a Freeman -


she decided the house should be
sold in the 1960s."
Croley serves as president of
the Nicholson-Freeman
Cemetery Association, located
adjacent to the Nicholson
Farmhouse, There, generations
of Nicholsons and Freemans are
buried, dating back to Dr.
Malcolm Nicholson, who died
in 1840 and came to Gadsden
County with Virginian John
White in the 1820s to grow
tobacco.
According to a historic mark-
er at the entrance to Nicholson
Farmhouse, for which'Croley
wrote much of the text,
Malcolm Nicholson was born
in the Carolinas in 1790. He
moved to North Florida in the
early 1820s where he combined
his medical and farming
careers. He was one of the
appointed commissioners who
chose Quincy as the seat of


Gadsden County, and a member
of the group that selected
Tallahassee as the site of the
state Capitol in 1822.
The Nicholson property has
changed hands more than once
since then; Jackson County
businessman Charles Eubanks
bought the property in 1987 and
the Carpenters bought it in
1999.
Opening a restaurant had
always been Paul Nicholson's
dream, Croley said, and he also
wanted to share the homestead
with the community.
To bring that dream to
fruition, Nicholson and Willard
Rudd, with whom he'd worked
in the pest control business,
relocated several buildings to
the property one from Shady
Rest, one from Overstreet, one
from Attapulgus Road and
turned them into dining areas
and a gift shop.
Doug Croley's brother,
Johnny Croley, bought and
moved a building that was
located behind the NAPA store
on Highway 12. Once he had it
on the 45-acre Nicholson Farm,
he turned it into a gift and
antique shop in '94or '95.
He ran the antique shop until
Nicholson offered to buy it in
January, 1999. Nicholson was
killed around four months later
and his widow sold off the
entire property.
"He wanted the antique shop,
so I said, 'OK.' We're
cousins,and I sold it to him. It
was a good deal for me and a
good deal for him," Johnny
Croley said.
The sale of the antique shop


gave Croley more time to focus
on his full-time work, farming,
and while the property hasn't
been in family hands for several
years, seeing it close brings a
mix of emotions.
"It's hard. In Gadsden
County, there are so many peo-
ple connected to the Nicholson
house in one way or another,"
Johnny Croley said. "Think
about it how many things


have that kind of longevity,
how many have been around
that long? In addition to the
food being good, there were so
many ties there in this county -
I think the roots ran real, real
deep and when you look at
who's related to the Nicholson
family and who you just happen
to meet, for that matter, you
find out that the world's not as
big as you might think."


Nicholson Farmhouse owner Gerald Carpenter, shown here
on the front porch of the restaurant, closed the eatery Dec. 23 in
order to be able to spend more time with his family. (Photo by

stage of Cotton Hall as this year's
production of Swamp Gravy:
Visiting Hours is brought to life.
The show, a blend of mystery,
music and mischief, is filled with
tales of visitors- family and


strangers alike- who sometimes
bring more than we expect. These
characters may test Colquitl's
never-ending hospitality, but they
make lor some unforgettable vis-
iting hours.
Swamp Gravy's plays, steeped


in the Southern art of storytelling,
are based on true stories told by
the community and dished up
with a healthy serving of original
music and traditional hymns.
Swamp Gravy's world renowned
cast of 100 volunteers brings


these stories to life in what has
become Georgia's celebrated
Official Folk Life Play.
Swamp Gravy: Visiting Hours
is written by playwright J~ules
Corriere and directed by Swamp
Gravy's original artistic dir tor,


Richard Geer. Make your way to
Cotton Hall during March to see
how a stranger's gift can change
the world. The performances are
during the first four weekends in
March, March 1-3, 8-10, 15-17
and 22-24. Shows run on


Thursday and Fridays at 7:30
p.m. and Saturdays at 2:30 and
7:30 p.m. To order tickets or to
learn more about this year's
Swamp Gravy, call (229) 758-

HMS sets goals with toast '
set o s toast ilZ .r-...R


Mrs. McEwen's math stu-
dents "Toasted the New Year" in
by setting their goals for the up
coming FCAT! Each student
wrote their goals then shared
them with the class.
Rosalyn Baker said, "I plan
to pay attention and take all of
my work seriously. I plan to
study harder and develop good
study habits. I want to score a
Level 5 this.year!" Students
-enjoyed sharing their goals and
discussing ways to improve
their scores. Mrs. McEwen
shared eleven test-taking strate-
gies that the classes will be
working on each day. These
strategies are a part of the
Continuous Improvement
Model that the Gadsden District
uses. They included:


1. Whisper read the problem
at least three times. Make a
mental picture of what is being
read.
2. Circle key words in the
question. MAKE SURE YOU
UNDERSTAND WHAT THE
QUESTION IS ASKING.
3. Identify and circle
/underline key numbers and
labels.
4. Eliminate unneeded data.
5. Thoroughly study any
graphs, charts or diagrams.
6. Determine the opera-
tion(s)/strategies needed to
solve the problem..
7. Solve. SHOW YOUR
WORK! Draw a picture, label
charts and graphs according to
the key, fill in place value chart,
draw a number line, etc.


8. Evaluate the solution.
DOES THE SOLUTION
ANSWER THE QUESTION?
DOES THE SOLUTION
MAKE SENSE?
9. Check your solution with
the answer choices. If your
answer is not found, repeat
Steps 1 through 8.
10. Eliminate wrong
answers. Cross them out.
11. Bubble in the correct
answer.
These strategies will help
students approach problem-
solving methodically. Students
also signed a "PASS PACT ",
which is a test contract. In this
contract, they promise to follow
the test taking strategies and do
try their best. Look for High
Scores in 2007.

Kindergarten teacher at St. John
Elementary School, has been
chosen as our Rookie Teacher
of the Year. She has been a part
of the St. John's Rockets for two
years.
She is married to Torrence
McNelson, a member of Second
St. James Church, and a proud
owner of a Jack Russell names
Titus.
Mrs. McNelson's love for
children and her high expecta-
tions of them becoming produc-

choices in the classroom. She
encourages all students to
dream and expand their dreams

that this can be done through,
"Stop, Read and Study" and for
them to set aside time to dream
and make these dreams become
a reality. Mrs. Swann echoes
that every child is "Our Top

should be given the opportunity
to learn in a classroom setting.

strategies to fluency. She also
came out on Saturdays and par-
ticipated in reading centers with
the students. This year Mrs.
McNelson serves our ESOL stu-
dents two days a week, focusing
on vocabulary development,
fluency and comprehension.
Mrs. McNelson is a lifelong
learner and is truly dedicated in
her endeavors. This is not only
evident in her choice to work

also in her constant quest for
professional development.
Congratulations, Mrs.

McNelson.

Pace's Laboratory Allstars


Allstars (HMS 8th graders) are blasting off to an exciting
year. The Allstars will be taken to a world they. have never
experienced before. They will need the entire community to
support this effort. For the first time in history the science por-
tion of the FCAT will count as part of the overall FCAT score.
This means we have to work hard to get our wonderful Allstars
prepared for this. Ms. Pace, the Allstars' science teacher,
believes in her students and knows they have the ability to
achieve a passing score. She needs your help to instill a sense of
positive self-worth and a belief that they can be successful in
their attempts both in and out of the classroom. The Allstars
also need to hold themselves responsible for their own actions
and challenge themselves to do better in all endeavors. The
photo shows NMs. Pace and her Allstars blasting off to the new
world. Ms. Pace has challenged her students to work up to their
potential every day and reminds them of Superintendent James'
policy... "No Excuses".

Open Court Choir -

at St. John Elem.
;iL


Mrs. Kindell's Class
Every morning between 9 and 9:15
"Choir" is in session in room 4 at St. Joh/
Elementary School. Phonics, being theft
part of the Open Court Reading proa
turns into a series of chants, jingles, eers,
and songs. Engaging kids first thi in the
morning can be very challenging why not
boost and hype then up for a at reading
exploration through music? Mdsic is a tool
used for learning and creating melodies for
various phonemic sounds. yhas made a dif-
ference in our classroom virm up activities.
Of the 43 sound carcS use for the Open
Court Reading Series morning music is
centered on sound cars 39-40. Our favorite
cards are /ow/, /ou/, Aw/, /au/, /oo/, //oi/, and
/oy/. The most rewarding part is seeing stu-
dents apply what they have learned.
Students are eager throughout the day to
point out skills they have previously cov-


ered while completing other subjects in the
classroom. There is one slight problem
about this music in the morning idea: The
children never stop singing. Students are
singing, chanting, and cheering all day long.


!i




You just chuckle and pat yourself on the
back because learning is taking place in the
classroom. We love choir in the morning. It
motivates, inspires, and sets the pace for a
wonderful day of learning.

Did He or

Didn t He?

Johann Guenberg invented the printing

by hand, a single volume might require several
years to complete. Working in monasteries,
Roman Catholic monks usually copied the
manuscripts, giving almost total control over
the spread of knowledge to the Church.

Johann Gutenberg, the son of a successful mer-
chant, was born between 1393 and 1403 in the
German town of Mainz. Later in life, he dis-
played a comprehensive knowl-
edge of Latin, which leads histori- .* ,*
ans to believe that he attended
school as a child. Whether or not -..
he ,also attended university is '" '-
unknown, but a student with the
same name graduated from the
nearby University of Erfurt in .
1419.


For the most part, his activities as
a young man remain a mystery.
There is proof that he became a
master goldsmith, giving him the


The Gutenberg Bib
Smir Piibliqhin


metal working skills that he later 'q.....
used in his career as a printer. Gutenberg
moved from Mainz to Strassbourg where he
worked as a tutor in 1434,training a young
man to become a goldsmith.

By 1448,he had returned to Mainz where
he was making his living as a printer. On
October 17, he borrowed 150 guilders
from his cousin, and a further 800 from
Johann Fust to fund the development of
new printing technology.

0'" By 1452, Gutenberg had made signifi-


cant advances, but needed more money to con-
tinue. Fust, the businessman who had-funded
his work four years earlier, invested a fuifher 800
guilders, allowing Gutenberg to create and print
a Bible. In February 1454, Gutenberg Jfsed his
new system to publish a forty-two-line Bible.

The revolutionary difference between
Gutenberg's new method and traditional meth-

Ile. Throh
:" -...


le. Through Cooper


ods of printing was his creation of a
system of movable type. By mak-
ing individual metal letters and
securing them to a page sized
metal tray, a page of text could be
created, much like individual letters
are used in a Scrabble game. After
making the required number of
copies, a printer could remove.and
rearrange the letters to create the
next page.

The reduced time and expense
needed to print a book changed it
from a luxury item to a consumer


product. The new technology spread across
Europe, and by the end of the fifteenth century,
books had become widely available.

As with any good detective story, this one has a
surprise ending. Nearly six hundred years later,
two researchers have suggested that we might
be honoring the wrong man. To find out more

detective work, take the Web Journey.
