Changes in

graduation

requirements

await students

Legislation set to

take effect this fall
by LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor
New legislation calling for students entering
their first year of high school in the 2007-2008
school year to focus on their futures will greet
freshmen throughout the state in the fall.
To meet. graduation requirements, students
who are freshmen in the 2007-2008 school
year will be required to choose an area of
interest and complete 24 credits in that area.
Other options include completion of an
international Baccalaureate curriculum or an
Advanced International Certificate of
Education curriculum.
The new law also requires schools to advise
students of eligibility requirements for state
college scholarship programs and
postsecondary school admissions.
;i"I think that the intent is to give education
more correlation with careers," said Gadsden

City considers $1.5 million loan


Commission questions means of repaying line of credit requested by city manager


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
Quincy's City Manager, Bill Bogan
asked the city commission to approve
a 1.5 million dollar line of credit from
the capital City Bank to catch up the
city's bills.
While the commissioners did not
slam the door shut on the request, they
told Bogan if he could come back with
a way to repay the money they would


revisit the request.
"I say it's problematic. If we have to
borrow 1.5 million dollars, we're in
trouble," said Commissioner Derrick
Elias.
The money, Bogan said, will be used
to help the staff manage the cash flow
and allow the city to be current with its
vendors, namely Progress Energy,
Waste Management, and OMI. The
bills to these three amount to almost
$300,000 per month. Currently, the


city is behind on all three.
"At what point in time do we catch
up?. We're still doing what we were
doing when Ms. (Neva) Reed and Mr.
(Willie Earl) Banks were here. At
some point time, we have to address
this," said Elias.
In rapid succession, Elias wanted to
know from Bogan how the money is
going to be repaid if here is a cash
flow problem and from what source
will the money be repaid.


"This is bad business," Elias said.
Commissioner Finley Cook
disagreed with Elias and said it was
"good business" to have a line of
credit. "This (money) is for a rainy day
and will keep the vendors happy,"
Cook said.
"This may work in private industry
because it is set up to make a profit. It

Local man remembers

his playing days in the

Negro American League

Special to the Times
Quincy resident James
Hicks remembers clearly the
day he pl.)ed in his first
major league baseball game
for the Kansas City Monarchs
in the Negro American
League.
It was 1952, and he was 18.
"I looked up and I saw the
lights, and I knew I had made
it to the big leagues," Hicks
said.
Leaving Gadsden County,
where he was raised, for a big
city was a bit.intimidating for
an 18-year-old. Still, it was a


dream he'd work hard to
bring to fruition.
"Yeah, I was scared, but this
had been what I had wanted
to do all of my life," Hicks
said.
He followed in the footsteps
of some of baseball's greatest
players: Cool Papa Bell,
Martin Dihigo and Ray
Dandridge, now major league
baseball Hall-of-Famers who
may not be well-known
outside of Negro League
historians but were legendary

The beginning of Black History Month in Gadsden


One of first organizers recalls early years of observance


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
Long before the birthday of slain civil
rights leader, Dr. Martin Luther King,
Jr. was a holiday, there was Black
History Week and finally, Black History
Month.
February was the month that Black
students were assigned essays to write
on famous Black people and or events.
Churches also held programs designed
to enlighten members on the Black


experience.
Some people in the county wanted
more.
A small group, led by Anthony Powell,
Clarence Lewis, Linwood Herring, and
several others met to discuss holding a
community-wide event that would bring
attention to local black history. There
was a need, they felt, to showcase local
people with Which young people could
identify.
"We really wanted to plan activities
throughout the year. We wanted to get


the churches and civic organizations
heavily involved," Powell said.
The intent of the Gadsden County
Black Heritage Culture & Education
Organization was to promote education,
family values and all of the things that
make for a strong community.
The first parade and festival, held in
1983, met with limited success. But as
the years passed the participation grew.

the founders of the Black
History and Culture
Committee of Gadsden
County 25 years ago this
month.

Gretna groundbreaking


City and county officials gathered Tuesday morning in Gretna for a groundbreaking that was three
years in the making. The cooperative effort to bring a public safety building to Gretna, which will
house both the fire department and the police department, began three years ago. The new building
will be 5,200 square feet and cost $300,000 to build. It will house four fire engine bays and facilitate
cross-training between city police officers and volunteer firefighters. "Today what we have seen in
Gretna is unprecedented," Gretna City Manager Antonio Jefferson said. "This is a joint effort
between county and city that will save lives."

Art appreciation class

Have you ever stood in front of a
painting or other work of art and
wondered what makes it "great
art" (or not), or thought, "my
three-year-old could do that," or
"why would someone make that?"
or "I just don't get it?" Do you
realize that many art forms -
billboards, advertisements, TV
commercials are speaking to you
and influencing your actions every
day? You can learn what these
myriad works of art are saying to
you.
A single work of art can speak to
us on a highly personal level while
at the same time art can be a
universal language. In the
Gadsden Arts Center's upcoming
Art Appreciation class you can
learn why artists create, the
"tools" and "rules" they use to
create art, what your experience
brings to bear when "reading" a
work of art, and how to
understand art through the larger
contexts of culture, history, and art
history.
Instructor Grace Maloy, the
former Executive Director of the
Gadsden Arts Center, a graphic
artist for over twenty years and an
art educator/administrator for
twelve years, will bring art to light
through classroom presentations,
studio explorations, and gallery
discussions.
The class will be held at the
GAC on alternating Saturdays:
February 24, March 10 and 24,
and April 7 from 10am to 12 noon,
tuition is $50 and all materials are
included. To register, call or stop
by the Gadsden Arts Center by

'Step Up!' health expo draws crowd


by LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor

Saturday's Health Expo was a
hit.
A sizeable crowd turned out for
the event, co-sponsored by
Gadsden Woman to Woman and
the Gadsden County Health
Department's Step Up! initiative.
The idea, local health
department heart disease, stroke
and diabetes prevention regional
coordinator Beryl Richardson
said, was to get people moving
and show them they could have
fun doing it.
"People seemed to take a liking
to it it seemed to captivate their
imagination," she said. "I also
liked that there were all ages and
shapes and sizes playing
volleyball."
The Step Up! initiative was
begun by the state Health
Department four years ago with
the goal of encouraging activity
as a way of lowering obesity.
"This program has two
purposes to encourage physical
activity for everybody and to
encourage the use of outdoor
recreation," Richardson said.
"We have gorgeous landscaping
here in Gadsden County and

Florida people of all ages and


sizes can enjoy it. This is a way
to encourage physical activity
that is not competitive, and to
prevent cardiovascular disease,
diabetes and stroke by
increasing activity. Physical
activity reduces obesity, raises
HDL ('good' cholesterol)
improves blood pressure and
creates larger arteries and
collateral circulations. We also
offer smoking cessation
programs.
There were plenty of
informational booths, as well as
food, and Gadsden Woman to
Woman provided information on
the cost of infections to pregnant
women: possible premature
births and stillborn babies.
Gadsden Woman to Woman
coordinator Arrie Battle could
not immediately be reached for
comment.
Other participants included the
Big Bend March of Dimes, the
Florida Department of Health
Bureau of Immunization and the
American Heart Association.
FM radio station 96.1 JAMZ
was there for most of the three-
hour event, and Gadsden County
Schools and the City of Quincy
also lent a helping hand.


One of the most popular events at Saturday's Health Expo, co-sponsored by Gadsden Woman to
Woman and the Gadsden County Health Department's Step Up! initiative, was volleyball. At
least seven teams signed up to play, with Gadsden County Commissioner Ed Dixon refereeing.

LEAGUE from Page 1


in their time.
Most baseball fans are familiar
with other famous players of the
league: Satchel Paige and Jackie
Robinson, for example. Both
started their long and prestigious
career in the Negro Leagues, and
both did stints with the same
team
Hicks played for, the Monarch.
Paige pitched for the Monarchs
from 1939-1942; Robinson
played for the Monarchs in 1945.
Robinson, who was born in
Cairo, Ga., broke the color barrier
when he walked onto Ebbett's
Field in a Brooklyn Dodgers
uniform on April 14, 1947 to
become the first African-
4 ierican MLB player in the 20th
c6tury. Paige became the
S lfgue's oldest rookie in 1947 at
the age of 42.
Renowned and talented African-
American athletes were to
continue the tradition: Hank
Aaron, Willie Mays, Roy
Campanella and Monte Irvin got
their starts in the Negro League
and went on to become members
of the MLB Hall of Fame.
It was that type of inspiration
that propelled Hicks to be the
best baseball player possible.
Hicks and his family moved to
Gadsden County's Green Shade
community from Albany, Ga.,
when he was 9.
The move would ultimately lead
to a career in baseball for Hicks.
"I would spend hours bouncing
the ball off the back of the back
of the chimney at our house. I
tried to make the ball do every

HISTORY from


Some years participation was
light and could only be blamed on
the weather.
Other years drew many
participants and, some say, can
only be attributed to election
years. Whether it was pouring
rain or freezing cold or a political
year or not, the parade and
festival have continued on for the
past 25 years. And, there have
been the steadfast supporters who
didn't allow anything to deter
them.
"Mrs. Maggie King was always
there no matter what the weather.
She made sure her sorority, Zeta
Phi Beta, and her church, Mt.
Zion, participated," Powell said.
He could also count on Bill
Shaw, a local plumber, and the
Zanders family with their horses.
Seste Wilson at North Florida
vault always donated the port-o-
lets for the festival on the square.
"Those are important," Powell
said.


conceivable counce, so that i
could scoop it up," Hicks said.
Hicks wanted to play short-stop.
He knew that you needed a quick
glove and a strong throwing arm
to be the best and that is what he
was training himself to be: the
best.
"I did a lot of work on my own,
it's all I thought about," Hicks
said.
"To be a great ballplayer you
need to be able to catch, throw,
hit and run, especially run."
For hours he would slide into a
makeshift base in his yard trying
to perfect a safe slide out of reach
of an infielder's glove.
"I would play in some pick-up
games with the neighborhood
boys and try out my new
techniques," he said.
Those early sandlot games
would set the stage for Hicks'
determination to be, the best.
Eventually, the hours of lonely
practice and sandlot games paid
off. He was spotted while playing
a sandlot game by a someone
connected with an organized
league and made the transition
from sandlot ball to an organized
league. By 14, he was playing
with the Quincy Ramblers of the
Florida-Georgia League. It wasn't
long before more folks noticed
the young kid from Gadsden
County with the vacuum cleaner
glove and the fast-as-lightening
arm. The Ramblers losta player,
but the Tallahassee Allstars
gained a star-quality shortstop.
"We used to play in the Old
Centennial Field on South


Monroe Street," Hicks said.
While playing for the Allstars,
Hicks earned the team's highest
batting average.
It was during his time as an
Allstars player that the Kansas
City Monarchs came to
Tallahassee to play an exhibition
game at Centennial Field. They
held tryouts in every town in
which they played exhibition
games.
"It was a two-day tryout, and I
decided to give it a try," Hicks
said.
That Friday, before the second
exhibition game, the Monarchs
had a new shortstop. Hicks was
told to pack his suitcase and be at
the Monarchs' bus the following
Tuesday morning.
"I was scared to death, but L
always thought I had been born to
play baseball and I was ready to
get on that bus," Hicks said. "The
other players helped me a lot. I
learned how to shift my weight
and play the ball in either
direction."
In his first league appearance,
he went two for four, stole a base
and drove one run in. It didn't
stop there he continued to get
better, leading his team in both
home runs and stolen bases.
"I hit 25 homeruns my first
year. Now most of them barely
cleared the fence, but they were
homeruns," Hicks said.
At 5-feet, 5-inches tall and 155
pounds, he soon learned the key
to hitting homers was in the
timing and the wrist action.
Then an injury sidelined him. A


routine slide into second base
ended his career four years after it
had started. He slide split one of
his leg bones.
"I had surgery and was laid up
for a while," he said.
He was offered a bonus contract
with the Monarchs if he wanted
to continue to play; the contract
wouldn't have covered him if he
were to be injured again and he
decided not to take the chance.
Hicks said he has few regrets
about his baseball career.
"At the time I thought it was the
end of the world," he recalled.
He came back home, married
and raised a family of six
children.
His wife died several years ago.
Instead of a career in baseball,
Hicks decided to make it his
quest to raise a family. He retired
from Kroger Executive Center in
2002 and has since remarried, to
the former Dorothy Sampson.
He is an active member of
Tanner Chapel AME Church and
sang in a gospel quartet, The
Spiritual Harmonizers, for a
number of years. The group cut
several albums.
He never completely gave up
baseball, playing locally for the
Havana Hawks. After three years,
he switched over to the Scott
Dodgers (now the Scottown
Dodgers) and played for them for
seven years before calling it
quits.
He then coached little league
teams and youth baseball in
Gadsden County.

In the early days local funeral
homes were heavily involved.
"Back then funerals were mostly
held on Sunday but when most
services started being held on
Saturday, it cut into their
involvement, "he said.
And Grand Marshal's have run
the gamut, too. "We've had all
sorts of people as Grand Marshal.
The usual politicians, business
people and people who have
contributed to this community.
One year we had a lady as Grand
Marshal because she had given
birth to 22 children. We thought
that was pretty significant," he
said.
When the parade and festival
started, Powell was 25 years old.
Now he wants to cut back. "It's a
lot of work. I don't mind doing it
but I think it's time for some
young people to take it over," he
said.
The parade route has not
changed either. The committee


chose to follow the same route as
the old Carter-Parramore High
homecoming parade: South
Stewart Street at MLK, Jr. Blvd,
north to Crawford Street and east
to South Adams Street where the
event disbands.
The parade and festival will be
held this year on Feb. 24. As usual
the festival will follow the parade
(around noon) on the Courthouse
Square with lots of food vendor,
some kids talent, a few speakers
and gospel music. By 4 p.m. all of
the vendors will have sold out of
barbecue and soul food, all of the
paper will be picked up and the
portable bleachers will be folded.
And Powell and other members
of the organization, including his
sister, brother, and niece, will go
home knowing that for another
year they have helped Gadsden
County really celebrate Black
History Month, 25 years and
counting.

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

By Alice DuPont, Editor



Contemplation




An artist who cares


The office telephone rings and
someone says "Alice, line 2". I never
know what to expect when I pick up. It
could be a disaster, a murder, a tip (that's
not really a tip) or it could be a pleasant
surprise.
Last week, I got a pleasant surprise
when former local, now famous, artist
Dean Mitchell called. After we caught
up on the local stuff (my filling him in
on gossip) he got down to the reason he
really called.
Dean has painted all sorts of structures
around Gadsden County, one of the most
famous is that of "Mr. Ernest Pecan"
shop. He has also, on several occasions,
painted what is known as "the old
Wilson House" on 10th Street in Quincy
and right in the heart of the Black
community.
The house had fallen into disrepair,
windows were missing, part of the
wraparound porch was gone and it
looked like all it was good for was
demolition. Redeemed, Inc., an
organization that as part of its mission
helps women re-enter society after
incarceration, saved the old house and
renovations have begun.
Dean said he wants to help raise money
so that the house can be fully restored
and so that tl$ women can be helped. He


said he is willing to sell signed prints of
the house to raise money. He is also
willing to come here and autograph the
prints, for as long as it takes, to help
with sales.
The organization could raise a lot of
money through an effort such as this
one. He was so passionate about
supporting this endeavor I could hear it
in his voice.
Throughout the nation, in the art
community, Dean is very, very, very
well known. But, he said his works can
be misunderstood. People often
approach him wanting to write articles
and feature him. But, if you know Dean,
you know it's not about him.
He wants to help those who can't help
themselves. He said he wants his art to
be a "voice for people who don't have a
voice." He wants to motivate and inspire
children who grew up in similar
circumstances.
"I want them to know that I was raised
by a grandmother who had a fourth-
grade education. I want them to know
that if I can succeed, they can too," he
said.
Dean wants to help Redeemed, Inc.
because he knows that it can have a
ripple affect that will be positive for
parents and children.

Still waters run deep


The first thing I saw was the flag. You
know how they drape it ever so carefully
over the coffin. Uncle Clifford would have
liked that. He was born in 1926. In
December of 1944 he was in a cattle car
lurching his way toward the Battle of the
Bulge. You can do the math..... When I
was eighteen I was cruising Frank's Dairy
Bar looking for chicks..... -
It was another world for the young
Jasper Clifford Kennedy. He never talked
of it with me. But I saw the scars on the
arm and shoulder....and high up on his
back. I was small, six or eight, when I
remember walking behind him as he
plowed with that old mule. But I was old
enough not to ask questions of grown-ups.
Mother filled me in about the battle and the
wounds and the operations.
I reckon me and Uncle Clifford plowed a
lot back in the mid fifties. Mostly he
handled the geess" and "haws" and the big
"double shovel". Mostly I strolled along
and marveled at how the plow turned that
soil upside down. When we "got out of
sight of the house" he'd throw me up on the
back of that mule and I'd fight Indians and
win the Kentucky Derby while he got the
ground ready to accept the seed.
It is a very special bond among those that
have worked the land side by side.
I hugged Mother's neck and couldn't think
of one word to say. Cliff was her last
brother. She had already buried two others.
She patted my arm, "Are you alright son?"
That was just like Mom. She was well
aware of the place Uncle Clifford occupied
in this heart.
I hugged J. C. He was Clifford's oldest
and just a couple of years younger than me.
I couldn't think of one word to say. I
grabbed Joe's hand and hugged Martha and
Cathy. Again, no real intelligent thing
came to mind. I thought of these children's
mother, who had died way too young. That
was just one more lick that Clifford never
spoke to me about. I don't think I was
doing much comforting here.
My mind raced back as I stood amidst
the family. We'd spend the night over there
and Dave would push Joseph; or J.C.
would smack me and the fight would be
on. The girls would move back out of the
way. Clifford would wait until someone
had been about half killed and he would
calmly say, "That's enough boys."
He didn't get loud. He didn't threaten.
That wasn't this quiet man's way. He wasn't
even warning us. It was just a simple
statement. Most grown-ups would have had
to yell, or at least grab one of us by the arm
to squelch this riot. We ceased
immediately! I liked him so much that I
didn't want to disappoint him. His children
felt the same way.....


By the time I was twelve years old I
knew this was the most genuine, sincere,
straight forward, truthful, honest man that I
possibly would ever know. It took a few
years of maturity for me to understand that
he was completely devoid of any guile
whatsoever. And listen, that is a statement I
don't make lightly! And if I could think of
a higher compliment, I'd write it down.....
He'd come in the living room after
supper and say, "You children get enough
to eat?" He wasn't being polite. He was
concerned about the condition of our
bellies. "Kesley, are you still hungry?"
He'd peer down at you as if you were the
most important person in his life. I'm
twelve. He's thirty-three. You think that is
not a special memory.
The three sisters sat up on the first row.
Aunt Beatrice, Aunt Adell and Mother.
They looked so regal even as they
mourned. Clifford had been sick for a
while. And this was not unexpected. I
called Mom just as soon as I heard. Her
first words were, "I rocked him to sleep
when he was a baby." I can't imagine the
thoughts that ran through their minds as the
first song began.
If I got a free week-end in college I'd
drop by Cliffs. He would ask about school.
He "admired" that I was learning so much.
I'd ask him about his Polled Herefords. I
was amazed at how much he knew. He'd
have me view a cow from the side then
we'd ease around so I could see "head on".
He would point with such pride at a
particular good cow or calf. He'd want me
to guess the weight of his favorite bull. I
loved him way too much to tell him that
the cows all looked pretty much the same
to me......
There was a crowd of folks at this
funeral. A lot of family and even more that
were just friends. I wasn't the only person
who recognized this quiet man from down
on Sugar Creek was something special.
I drove through Lexington, Alabama, on
my way up here. Uncle Clifford saw me
pitch a baseball game there in the summer
of 1969. He talked about that game for
years. You'd a'thought it was against the
Bronx Bombers in Yankee Stadium! I can
only hope he was half as proud of me as I
was of him.....
I pray that with our hurry up, spread out,
live your own life, mobile society of today
we are not missing the Uncle Cliffords of
this world.
The last time I saw him alive the aging
process had robbed him of so much. He
had trouble remembering names and faces.
The goodness and genuineness was still
there. That was too deeply ingrained not to
still shine through. But you could also see

Hiking trail travails


As you well know, the Florida
Department of Environmental Protection
has joined the Florida Trail Association in
designating February as "Florida Hiking
Trails Month."
I hike from time to time, and had thought
about doing a story on this new thing to
celebrate.
My boss mentioned it might be a good
idea to contact a local hiker or two to get
some local opinions. I assured him I had
just the person for the story and called a
guy who once said during a meeting I was
covering that he and his wife "walked in
the forest."
That's all I needed "walked in the
forest" spells "avid hiker" to me. When I
called him, however, he was quick to
correct me. "We are 'concerned citizens,"'
he said. "We are not 'avid hikers.'"
I could see the writing on the wall. MY
lazy butt on the trail that weekend,
concerned citizens at least the ones I
know how to get in touch with being
concerned somewhere else.
So on a sunny Sunday afternoon, I set
out for Bear Creek Educational Forest, part
of the larger Lake Talquin Forest, to tread
a trail less taken.
There were about six non-U.S. Foresty
vehicles parked there while I was there, so
more than one of us had the same idea.
I took inventory before the adventure:
Comfortable shoes?
Check.
Cell phone in case I get lost?
Check, and lots 'o luck getting one to
work in those woods.
Small snack?
Check, although how you're supposed to
eat one when you're hiking, (avidly) and
trying to breathe at the same time is a
mystery to me.
It was a nice day for it, though, and I set
off in high spirits.
According to a DEP press release,
Florida has more than 4,000 miles of trails,
the largest of which is the Florida Natural
Scenic Trail which is a path that will
eventually span 1,400 miles from the Gulf
Islands National Seashore in the Panhandle
to the Florida Keys.
In Gadsden County, Bear Creek has four
trails the .66-mile Living Forest Trail, the
half-mile Spur Trail, the 2.46-mile Ravine
Trail and the 3-mile Bear Trail. There's
also the Line Tract in Lake Talquin State
Forest on up the road and the Fort Braden
Trail is not too awfully far away.

But Bear Creek it was for me.Sunday, so
off I went.
Of the forest's four trails, I opted for Bear
Creek Trail, and here's why: It's hilly,
which I like, and way, far, away from
Beaver Pond where a couple of alert and
attitudnally-challenged alligators like to
hang out.
To get to the Bear Creek or Ravine trails
you have to trapse across a teeny, tiny
earthen dam that separates you from the
alligator-infested pond. By "infested" I
mean two to four alligators, with at least
two of those being babies, but still.
Alligators are alligators in my book.
I headed uphill, keeping a watch for
wildlife heard and saw several birds, that
was about it. Nice foliage, though, with
things already greened up and several
flowering trees beginning to bud.
Hit the top of the ridge, got temporarily
lost, this is a normal part of any excursion I
take so I was not unduly alarmed.
Finally I found the orange markers that
signified I was back on Bear Creek Trail
and started the ascent when I heard it a
noise that sounded like a group of hoot'
owls at a convention with the main speaker
using a megaphone to get his point across.
I stopped, looked, saw nothing. I was
getting closer to Beaver Pond when I heard
t again. I stumbled a bit and realized this
was no hoot owl convention it had to be
assembly of alligators communicating in
some weird, reptilian way, and what Iwas
pretty sure they were saying was, "Do try
to run in a zig-zag fashion once you hit
that earthen dam. We'd like to see it,
considering you're hardly able to walk
down that hill. Pick up the pace, wouldja?
And consider this an official invitation to
Sunday brunch."
I looked around. No one in sight, no way
out. The earthen dam loomed like a grass-
covered gauntlet.
Then I heard voices. Saw a family. Kids
were standing next to a wooden post with
a button on it, which they pushed again
and again. And every time they did, the
loud, monophonic recorded voice of a
ranger explained the secrets of the
sparkleberry.
No hoot owl convention. No alligator
biding time before brunch.
At any rate, it's a beautiful place to hike
and there are lots others like it around if
you haven't had a chance to get out to one
of them lately, pick a sunny day and go.
Just ignore the alligators.

Educational system needs revamp

Dear Editor:

I don't get it!! Fifty percent of the students in Gadsden
County never make it to high school, yet, newspapers
report how well the county school system is doing. Fifty
per cent leaving school with no skills? What does the
future hold for them?
Dr. Manny Shargel and I met recently with Dr. Cheri
Yecke, chancellor for the state K-12 programs. When we
suggested that FCAT was the driving force in Florida's
school system, she seemed,to take exception to that. Tell
that to our Gadsden County School teaches.
We need an educational system that allows for those
who don't do well on tests programs that ensure they get
the basic skills in reading and math and an introduction to
technical training. There are well-paying, meaningfuLwork
in many fields that are suffering from the lack of skilled
workers. College prep is not for everyone.

Fire victim says thank you

To our friends and neighbors:

We are so grateful for the outpouring of support our
family received after the loss of our home. The sympathy,
patience, and generosity of the Quincy community was
and remains the source of our recovery. We are forever
grateful.
We have suffered loss. But for the graciousness of God,
we are all safe.
We are touched deeply by the compassion you have
shown us. It is a very humbling experience to be at the
graces of those you do not know. We feel blessed to have
been a part of your community for the last few years and
will cherish it always.
We thank you for your prayers. Please be assured that
you are in ours.

Rounding


third and


heading


for home

To paraphrase that famous
American Sammy
Sosa...Gadsden County been
very, very good to us.
Thank you, one and all for
sharing your county, your town
and your lives with us.
Us, of course, is Wendy and
myself. We've sold The Gadsden
County Times to Landmark
Community Newspapers, Inc.,
leaving this newspaper in the
hands of arguably the
best community
newspaper
publishing
company in the
entire world.
Landmark's 55-plus
newspapers are ,
mostly papers q si
the size of The Gadsden County
Times. And they're all very, very
good newspapers.
The rest of the staff will still be
right here doing the great job
they've been doing. Eddie
Ledbetter, who we chose to be
General Manager last November,
will remain in charge of the day-
to-day operations. Any question
you might have asked of me in the
past, Eddie will gladly answer.
Alice, Leslie, Joe and Susie will
continue to keep you informed of
events around Gadsden County.
Chris and Wayne will still make
sure your advertisements are
collected and printed correctly.
Kenny is still delivering the
newspapers. Dave is still running
the printing shop. A new face, but
one Wendy personally selected, is
Becky. She began assuming
Wendy's duties a few weeks ago.
And boy, is she good at it.
As far as plans for the future go,
I'll have to leave that up to Eddie
to explain. I do know, however,
they have some improvements in
mind.
While many, many people
contributed to our success and our
enjoyment of living in Quincy,
there are a few I'd like to single
out. Please don't take this to be a
complete list since even those we
never met but who read our
newspaper need to be included.
Our first friend in Quincy was
Joyce Padgett. Joyce, Beth and I
met when I climbed off my
motorcycle sometime back in
2003 and stopped by their jewelry
store. In spite of the fact that I
wouldn't tell her who I was, where
I was from or what I was doing,
she told me all about Quincy and
the wonderful people who live
here. I was looking for affirmation
that the business owners here
liked being here. I found it.
It can truthfully be said we came
to Quincy because of Joyce's and
Beth's belief that this is indeed the
greatest town on the face of the
earth in which to both live and
own a business.
Byron Spires, who was at the
time a reporter here, introduced us
to Tenney Deane. Tenny's become
one of my best friends. I can only
hope to have as many friends
some day as Tenney has now. He
has helped me understand the
diverse population of Gadsden
County, its rich history and the
contributions of all of its citizens
as probably no one else
could...not because he knows so
much, but because he understands
so much and is willing to share
that with others.


By the way, as this newspaper
hit the newsstands Wednesday,
Tenney is keeping a date with a
surgeon in Gainsville. We wish
him, Marsha and their family the
best.
Then there's Byron himself.

Young volunteers to take the sting of taser


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

"It felt like someone had hit
me in the back, hard, very hard
and it had a sharp point," was
the way Sheriff Morris Young
described the sting of a Taser
gun.
Young volunteered to be shot
with the Taser following a class
in which 10 deputies and jail
corrections officers were
trained. Young was hit with two
charges while the average per-
son authorities attempt to sub-
due is hit with five charges.
"I really felt it. It's hard to


describe. They said I would real-
ly feel it in the morning," Young
said. "I can't imagine what it
would feel like with five," he
said.
Tasers are used to stop flee-
ing suspects or control people
who are out of control. In short,
they are non-lethal weapons but
are very effective. Any officer
using a Taser must be trained.
"There has been a lot in the
media, but that's why we train
people, we're not just sending
them out there and let them go
crazy (with tasers)," said Lt.
John Ulm of the Havana Police
Department who conducted the


training.
When a person is tasered, he
or she will in most cases:
*fall immediately to the
ground.
*yell or scream
*experience involuntary
muscle contractions
*may freeze in place or legs
will lock
*may be dazed for several
minutes
*potential vertigo
*temporary tingling sensa-
tion
*may experience critical
stress, amnesia
*may not remember the pain

A petition calling for the
removal of Midway City
Commissioner Chuck Willis has
been declared invalid by the
Gadsden County Supervisor of
Elections Office.
The petition began circulat-
ing Dec. 20. Supervisor of
Elections Shirley Knight said
that under state statute, those
circulating it had 30 days -
which would have ended Jan.
18 to collect signatures.
While a group of Midway
residents turned in last week a
petition with 109 signatures on
it, Knight found that many of
the signatures had been collect-
ed after the Jan. 18 deadline and
that other signatures did not
belong to registered voters.
"They needed at least 100
signatures," Knight said. "A
majority of those who signed
the petition signed after Jan. 18
- that was a major problem.
Petition organizer Sharon
Polite, however, said the group
will circulate another petition


asking for Willis' removal from
office.
"We're doing the petition
again," she said. "We ain't dead
yet. The fat lady has not sung
yet."
Grounds for removal from
office include malfeasance,
misfeasance, neglect of duty,
drunkenness, incompetence,
permanent inability to perform
official duties and conviction of
a felony involving moral turpi-
tude.
The petition filed asking for
the removal of Willis reads as
follows:
."We the citizens of Midway
would like to do a
recall/removal of Councilman
Charles "Chuck" *Willis based
on these issues: (1) We find his
conduct does not represent the
citizens of Midway. (2) He is
incompetent in filling his role as
a council member. He has been
a councilman since December,
1999 (seven years) and still
lacks the knowledge of how to
speak correctly to the citizens
and conduct himself orderly at
council meetings. At the Dec. 7


council meeting, he stated: 'I
don't know what I'm doing.' -
Gadsden County Times. Dec.
14 edition. (3) He has attended
several meetings under the
influence of alcohol/drugs. (4)
He has been very instrumental
in spreading ill rumors about
city staff members and City
Council members. (5) His com-
ments at City Council meetings
indicate that he shows prejudice
toward new residents and the
city manager. (6) He cannot
.read a simple financial state-
ment. (7) Several comments he
has made at council meetings
indicate he is clearly violating
the Sunshine Law."
Willis could not be reached
for comment for this story.

Correction

In a story that ran in the Feb.
8 issue of the Gadsden County
Times, Gwendolyn Bradwell was
misidentified. Bradwell was
named School-Related Employee
of the Year for the Gadsden
County School District. The
Times regrets the error.

The United States
Department of Agriculture
announced in late January that
Gadsden County has been
selected to receive the 2006
Community Development
Award.


"As the winner, your com-
munity will be named the
USDA Rural Development
Community of the Year," wrote
state director Charles Clemons,
Sr. in making the announce-
ment.
He especially commended
former county grants adminis-
trator Nancy Gee for the work


she did in competing the appli-
cation package that outlined
accomplishments in the county.
Clemons said USDA would
like to visit the county to make
the award personally. That cere-
mony will be held Thursday,
Feb. 22, at 10:30 a.m. at the
IFAS Center on Pat Thomas
Parkway.


GRADUATION from Page 1


County Schools Superintendent
Reginald James. "We're prepared
to offer that opportunity to our
students."
The 24 credits may be earned
through applied, integrated and
combined courses approved by
the state DOE and are to be
distributed in this way:
* Sixteen core curriculum
credits, four of which must be in
English- with a major
concentration in composition,
reading for information and
literature. Three of those credits
must be science credits and have
a laboratory component, and
three credits in social studies are
also required, one in American


history, one in world history, half
a credit in economics and half a
credit in American government.
To complete the 16-core
curriculum requirement, students
must earn one credit in fine arts
and one in physical education.
Students are also required to
take eight credits in majors,
minors or electives:
Four credits in a major area of
interest, such as sequential
courses in a career and technical
programs, fine and performing
arts or academic content area,
selected by the student as part of
the education plan required by the
new legislation. Students can
revise major areas of interest each


year as part of annual course
registration processes and should
update their education plan to
reflect such revisions. District
school boards across the state are
required to approve major areas
of interest and submit the list of
majors to the commissioner of
education for approval by Oct. 1
annually. Those majors are then
reviewed and considered
approved unless they are
specifically rejected by the
commission within 60 days of
receipt.
"Students do have some
flexibility they can change their
minds," James said.
SThe legislation also calls for


students to complete four credits
in elective courses chosen by the
student as part of the education
plan required by law. Those
credits can be combined to allow
for a second major or a minor,
elective courses, intensive
reading or mathematics
intervention courses or credit
recovery courses.
Minor areas of interest are
composed of three courses
selected by the student as part of
an educational plan required by
law and approved by the local
school board. Elective courses are
picked by the students in an effort
to encourage them to pursue a
complete education program and


to meet eligibility requirements
for scholarships.
The Florida Comprehensive
Assessment Test still figures in
the mix when it comes to
graduation. Under the new
legislation, students who score at
a level one on the FCAT reading
portion must be enrolled in and
complete an intensive reading
course for every year they score
at level one. Placement of level
two readers in either an intensive
reading course or a content area
course in which reading strategies
are delivered will be determined
by a diagnosis of reading needs.
The same holds true for students
who score at level one or level


two on the FCAT mathematics
portion.
Students in exceptional student
classes will have a similar set of
guidelines, modified as necessary
to accommodate the student's
exceptionability.
Students who meet all
requirements of the legislation
will be awarded standard
diplomas; those who meet only
some of them will be awarded a
certificate of completion and can
remain in high school either as a
full-time student or a part-time
student for up to one additional
year to receive special
instructions designed remedy his
or her identified deficiencies.

won't work here. But, we're still
not addressing the problem and
that is the core," Elias continued.
Bogan defended his request,
calling it a "sound financial move."
Commissioner Andy Gay asked
Bogan if he felt borrowing the
money was the best course of
action at this time to bring the
accounts current.


"Yes," answered Bogan.
"This is a $1.5 million float. I'm
assuming you are asking for this
because we actually need it," said
Commissioner Keith Dowdell.
"We're not addressing the
problem; for us to sit up here and
not address this is a disservice,"
Elias said.
Cook said the city's problems


started back in 2003 and not on
Bogan's watch.
"I know how we got here. I want
to know how we get out," Elias
said.
In other matters:
*Elias said he had received
numerous complaints from
residents of Arbor Crest about the
high water bills. He said residents


had informed him that they are
paying monthly water bills of $50
and $60.
The Arbor Crest complex has one
large meter which the city reads
and bills accordingly. What the
complex charges the residents is
out of the city's hands. Elias
wanted to know if the practice is
legal and can the company make a


HOME from Page 4


profit off the water.
City attorney Jack McLean told
Elias he would check into the
matter and provide him with the
information requested.
*Bogan proposed a plan to have
citizens who have no trouble
paying their utility bill donate $1,
$3, $5 or any amount they choose
to help those who have trouble
paying their utility bills.
"This is a voluntary thing that


will allow citizens to help their
fellow citizens," Bogan said.
"I appreciate your humanitarism,
but this is not very realistic. We
have people complaining about
their utility bills day and night, and
to think they will add even more to
their utility bills is ridiculous."
Elias said.
*Approved the hiring of
Raymond James as the city's
investment advisor.


Even though he no longer works
here, he's still a very good friend
and continues to make my time
here enjoyable. Oh, the stories that
guy can tell. The same goes for
John Drake. My visits with John
have been too few, but I enjoyed
every one of them, especially
when we discussed our mutual
adoration of Arabian horses.
There is one special lady who
isn't here to read this, but I want


all who knew her to know how
much she brightened my life every
time she walked through our
doors. That's Florence Bradwell.
I'm not sure even Mother Teresa
could exude as much love of her
fellowman as did Mrs. Bradwell.
I'm not about to start singling out
advertisers, because each and
every one of you are important to
this newspaper and were very
important to us personally during

the frustration of not being all
you once were. He studied on me
for a while and said, "That's
Kesley." I never have stood so
tall.....
When Leon called last Sunday
afternoon to tell me that Cliffs
trials in this life were over I cried
like a baby. Giant tears streamed
down my face. I couldn't stop and
didn't try to. I thought of him
digging in those overalls for an
extra nickel to buy me a Baby
Ruth up at the old store at Revilo.
I lingered on our farming days. I
saw that smile over a


Thanksgiving dinner. I
remembered his visit to Port St.
Joe.
I laughed as I recalled our trip
out to Oregon; and one up into
Kentucky. I wish I'd a'paid more
attention to those Polled
Herefords.
The preacher cleared his throat
and said, "Clifford Kennedy was
a good man.
" That's like saying the Pacific
Ocean has a little water in it.....

Respectfully,
Kes'

the past three years. Thank you,
all. Your confidence in investing
in The Gadsden County Times
inspired us to try to do better
every week.
I've watched this county meet
some terrific challenges the past
three years, most notably in
education. Tremendous gains are
being made. Our schools are no
longer ranked at the bottom of
Florida's system, and the gains


being made are in some cases at
the top. My wish is for Supt.
Reginald James and his staff to
have continued success in turning
our educational system around and
making it one of the best in the
state. Thanks, Reg, for making me
feel like I've been a part of that.

Sammy Sosa, I guess I'd better
take the field.

CRA still debating new manager


Charles Hayes addresses the CRA during the meeting
Tuesday.


by ALICE DU POINT
Times Editor

The Quincy City Commission,
which is also the Community
Redevelopment Agency (CRA),
still has not hired a CRA manager.
Tuesday night, during the CRA
meeting, the board voted against
accepting a contract for Charles
Hayes.
They wanted to wait until a
background check had been com-
pleted. Everything else, other than
a few minor items in the contract
were agreed upon. But board
members Sherrie Taylor, Andy


Gay and Finley Cook said they
preferred to wait until everything
that relates to Hayes' employment
is in order.
"Back in September we want-
ed to hire a person in two weeks.
Now it's stretched out to six
months," said Keith Dowdell,
who wanted to hire Hayes imme-
diately and not wait for the results
of a background check.
"What is a negative back-
ground check?" Dowdell asked.
Taylor told Dowdell he would
have to ask the city's Human
Resources for that information.
"I'm confused myself," said


Hayes, adding, "there is nothing
in my background that hasn't been
already exposed. Even if there is
something in my background, the
board has the discretion to over-
ride that."
Hayes was the second person
considered for the position and
seemed close to getting it Tuesday
until the little matter of the back-
ground check surfaced. Larry
White, attorney for the CRA
Advisory Committee said he and
Hayes had hammered out an
agreement that he felt the board
would accept. That contract, how-
ever, was not presented to board


members until the start of the
meeting. He said the company
that performs background checks
for the city has had three weeks
and still has not sent back results.
"I don't know what's going on
here but something is kind of
funky. It seems like someone is
deliberately trying to slow this
process down," said board mem-
ber Derrick Elias.
White said he would call the
company Wednesday to find out
the reason for the delay.
Taylor said she had no prob-
lem calling a special meeting once
the results are available.


State officials visit Gadsden to discuss health care


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

The Florida Secretary for the
Agency for Health Care
Administration, Dr. Andrew
Agwunobi, and the State
Surgeon General/Secretary of
the Florida Department of
Health, Dr. Ana M. Viamonte
Ros, were in Quincy Monday to
discuss the state of health care
in the county. Both said that
while they had only been in
their respective positions a
short time, they are aware of
problems facing Gadsden and
other rural counties.
"A lot of people think that all
we do is tell you what to do, but
that's not true. Our bosses are
the people. You and the people
of Gadsden County are my
bosses and we're going to fig-
ure out a way to get these peo-
ple services," Agwunobi said.
"I'm looking for ways to
help. I understand some of the
challenges. Agencies such as
Ours are set up to address chal-
renges such as you have here.
We are committed to working
with you to figure out how to
get quality health care back in
Gadsden County," Agwunobi
said.


Florida's Secretary of Health, Dr. Ana Viamonte Ros (left)
and Florida's Secretary for the Agency on Health Care
Administration, Dr. Andrew Agwunobi, toured Gadsden
Community Hospital Monday afternoon.


The doctors, along
with Rep. Curtis Richardson
and health care professionals,
took an extensive tour of the
hospital before speaking to
elected officials and health care
providers.
Agwunobi now heads the
agency, AHCA, thatclosed the
hospital on November 4, 2005.
He pledged to do everything he
could to get the facility open
again. He commended


Tallahassee Memorial
Healthcare and administrator
Corey Fleming for the work
they are doing with the Urgent
Care Center.
"This is great. It's very
clean, very nice," he said of the
Urgent Care Unit.
"We need our hospital. Our
people don't need to be in hos-
pitals 30 miles away," said
commission chairman Brenda
Holt.


"You need to let us know
specifically what we can do to
help. Once we know what you
want, we can work toward get-
ting those doors open. This is
the beginning of the dialogue.
You all will have direct access
to me and my staff," he said.
Dr. Viamonte Ros said she is
committed to partnering with
the county through the health
department.
"You deserve the best health
care for the citizens of this
county," she said.
Dr. Bill Law of Tallahassee
Community College said the
school is ready to help Gadsden
County too.
"TCC stands four-square
with Gadsden County. The day
we re-open the hospital, the day
we cut the ribbon, TCC stu-
dents will be doing internships
there," he said.
Rep. Curtis Richardson, who
worked in the Florida House of
Representatives to get the hos-
pital open said he was stung by
recent headlines in the
Tallahassee Democrat on infant
mortality in the county.
"We're not proud of that," he
said.
But, Agwunobi said, despite
the daunting statistics there are

A disaster could strike here
at anytime. Trucks and rail cars
haul hazardous materials
throughout the county day and
night.
Interstate 10 runs the length
of the county and railroad tracks
crisscross another large portion
of the county. That's why last
Friday, the North Florida
Region Domestic Security Task
Force conducted a tabletop
demonstration called "eXercise
eXtreme eXposure 2007"
(XXX07).
"One of the biggest problems
here is that 1-10 runs right
through and on any given day
there are all kinds of hazardous
materials from chlorine to sodi-
um hydroxide," said Jack
Pittman, director of Public
Health Preparedness for the
North Florida region.
About 25 people represent=
ing each municipality, law
enforcement, the health depart-
ment, the school district, and
the health department partici-
pated in the simulated disaster
which was held at the Gadsden
County Health Department.
The scenario was that of ter-
rorists riding in a van on 1-10
carrying radiation capsules
when they learn their identity
has been discovered.
With the Florida Highway
Patrol in hot pursuit, the desper-
ate group decides stop at
Chattahoochee. There the van
blows up severely injuring sev-
eral people and releasing the
radiation.
What do county officials do
to protect the citizens?
The answer is what the exer-
cise was intended to find. Using


laptops and a program created
and donated by Florida State
University, teams of three and
four studied intense videos and
shared information 'as they
decided on pre-event intelli-


gence, long term economic
impact, health consequences
and communications.
"The culmination of the
exercise will result in a commu-
nity-based action plan that will


consider ,responses to a radia-
tion dispersal threat that may
not be limited to the county
directly involved," said Rick
Miller, NFRDSTF County
Coordinator.

Jaguars take district


Finding themselves trailing
at halftime Saturday night, East
Gadsden had to make an adjust-
ment. That, they did, and the
Jaguars slipped by Bay high to
take a 53-49 win that gave them
the District 2-3A championship in
their own gym. It also gave them
a host spot in regional play which
begins Thursday night.
East Gadsden defeated Bay
in both regular season meetings
this year, but the Tornados came
out with a different plan this time,
and played a zone. "We. weren't
very patient in the firs- half."
Jaguar coach Demetrtc Salters
said. "We kept trying to force it
inside."
The results was Bay had a
26-22 lead at the half. Things
started changing in the third quar-
ter as Reshard McGill and
Leonardo Deloney hit a couple of
outside jumpers in a 14-5 Jaguar
run putting the host team up 36-
31. They then held off the
Tornados in the final quarter to
close out the victory.
McGill had a big night for


the Jaguars finishing with 18
points. Deloney added 12 while
Sam McLaurin scored 9. Both
McGill and McLaurin had 16
rebounds and Deloney added 6
assists and 4 steals to his perform-
ance.
"Bay coach Matt Anderson
had a good game plan for us."
Salters said. "But once we hit a
few open jumpers and took the
lead I felt our defense would allow
us to hang on."
It was the second district tour-
nament, game the Jaguars found
themselves-trailing at the half.
Wednesday, Rickardsltd a 28-23
halftime lead in a semi-finals con-
test. East Gadsden cut that lead to
1 by the end of the fourth quarter.
They then out scored the Raiders
28-22 in the final wild stanza to
take a 70-65 win.
The three point shooting of
D.J. Burgess got Rickards off to a
great start. Burgess nailed 5 of
them in the game and led the
Raiders with 21 points.
McGill started answering
Burgess and hit 4 three's himself


on the way to a game high 23
point night. Patrick Smith worked
inside for 16 points and S.
McLaurin added 10. S. McLaurin
and McGill had 15 rebounds each
while Smith and Adontay
McLaurin had 10 rebounds each.
The win was the third for
East Gadsden over Rickards this
year.
"It's always hard to beat a team
three times in a year." Salters said.
"Both Rickards and Bay came in
ready for us. For us to show we
could come. from behind in both
games-was big."
The Jaguars face a tough
Pensacola Washington team
Thursday. "They're like us big and
athletic." Salters commented. "We
just got to be focused and continue
to not panic if we get behind."
With the 2 wins East Gadsden
raised their season record to 24-3.
Washington will bring a 19-6
mark into Thursday's game.
Thursday's winner will face the
winner of Jacksonville
Sandlewood and Bishop Kenny
next Tuesday.

time wasn't a charm for the
Panthers. St. Joe won their
14th straight district tourna-


ment championships with a 59-
56 win over the Panthers
Saturday night.


The game was a see-saw
affair all night before it was set-

St. Joe hit enough of theirs
down the stretch to hold off
West Gadsden and earn the


right to host Blountstown in the
first round of the regionals
Thursday night.

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


*Paving 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.

Art in his eyes



Deputy supervisor of elections for Gadsden County also a master with a paintbrush


by LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor

Freddie Ash saw things differently than
other people from an early age.
As deputy supervisor of elections for
Gadsden County, he works with Supervisor
of Elections Shirley Knight and other staff
members to ensure elections run smoothly -
not an easy task, particularly in a county
with five municipalities, county-level
elections and state and federal elections.
"I love that it's a challenge," Ash said.
But his real love is painting and has been
since he was in elementary school.
"I had no formal training," he said.
"(Retired art teacher) Tom Harris inspired
me he was a great role mole, a great
teacher and a great friend. He was a mentor
to us."
The youngest of 12 children, Ash's
mother, Mattie Mae Britt, supported his
desire to draw.
"Actually, I started drawing stick people
all over the house and she said, 'Son, you
can't do that,'" he said with a laugh.
"So she went and bought me a paint by
number set. I was fascinated by the artwork
my brother brought home from school, and
started drawing comic book characters -
Herculoid, Core, Curly, Aquaman by
repeating sketches you get the training of
it."
As his talent expanded, so did his range of
subjects.
"I then started doing sketches of people,"
he said.


This portrait of Gadsden County
Sheriff Morris Young was painted by
artist and deputy supervisor of elections
Freddie Ash.


He also likes painting people, places and
things that symbolize the past.
"I'm always fascinated by things that
aren't modernized it's dying, it's
detiorating, it may be a barn or a house it's
become a symbol of our past," he said. "We
worked in a lot of shade tobacco I can still
visualize some of that."
When searching for a subject, Ash keeps
his eyes open for the beauty he finds in the
unassuming.
"There is a distinct instinct and attraction
I look for in anything it may be the color,
the anatomy, the setting I look for
unrehearsed, natural things," he said.
"There are certain features about those that
make it stand out to me, that make it
original. You don't have to be a famous
person to be a painter you can be ordinary
and have strong attractions to things that
stand out and make you want to paint
them."
A 1977 graduate of Shanks High School,
Ash was one of the group locals called
"The Quincy Five" five high school
students who demonstrated a talent and a
passion for art and often collaborated on
their work.
Dean Mitchell was a member of the
group, as were Timothy Barkley, Pete
Hinson and Timothy Myrick.
Ash and Barkley painted the Tigress
portraits on the wall of Shanks while they
were in junior high. The two paintings are
still there today.
"We were known as 'The Quincy Five,'.
art-wise. We all knew each other, came
from the same area we were friends. We
still are friends," Ash said. "We all wanted
the same things to be professional artists."
Mitchell has seen success as a
professional artist; Ash, who is married and
has five daughters, still paints as often as he
can and is planning a one-man art show of
his work in the near future.
He entered several art competitions at the
Gadsden Art Center in its early days and
earned recognition for his talent.
"Bette Appleton and Dave Harper who
initiated 'Art in Gadsden County' are all-
around beautiful people. Very nice," he
said. "At my very first show, I sold three
pieces to the Quincy Bank."
Other paintings he's sold include a pen
and ink portrait of a dilapidated barn in
Gadsden County to civil rights activist
Patricia Duke, who now resides in Quincy -
and a portrait of Gadsden County Sheriff
Morris Young.
"A lot of work I do is by commission," he
said.
Sharon Cobb was a guidance counselor at
Shanks High School when Ash was a
student there. She now works as a guidance
counselor at George W. Munroe


Elementary School. Several years ago, she
bought one of Ash's paintings.
"I always liked his work," she said. "The
picture is of an old farmhouse from way
back, dilapidated the picture, to me,
shows the decline that happened here after
the tobacco industry went down. The
picture had so much detail when I saw it,
it just reminded me of that time. His work
is so realistic, and so detailed. It's true to
this area, and what happened here after the
tobacco industry fell."
While it's difficult to find time to pursue
his artistic instincts, Ash makes a way and
is looking forward to his upcoming show,
for which no date has yet been set.
"I'm trying to stick with it, I'm trying to
get enough together for the show," he said.
"It's going to be fresh, it's going to be


original, it's going to be the best of art by
Freddie Ash."
Ash works on his paintings from home,
often working on several at a time in a
painstaking process that may take months
to complete.
"I'm not working on production, I'm
working on quality," he said.
He works on commissioned pieces, but
that's not the most important part of his art
endeavors, he said.
"It's not about the money, it's about
bringing about some of the different, the
original that we lost over the years. I
concentrate on the feelings and emotions
we have lost over the decades," he said.
"Art tells a story. It sets you free to express
your emotions and say things without
words."

PUBLIC NOTICE:
IMPORTANT INFORMA-
TION ABOUT YOUR
DRINKING WATER
Monitoring Requirements
Not Met for City of Quincy

We are required to moni-
tor your drinking water for
total coliform bacteria on a
regular basis. Results of
regular monitoring are an
indicator of whether or not
our drinking water meets
health standards. During
the month of December
2006, one location within
the distribution system
indicated the presence of


coliform bacteria.


Normally, the collection of
three repeat samples
should immediately follow
the discovery of any one
contaminated sample.
The City of Quincy only
collected two of the
required three repeat dis-
tribution samples.
However, these two sam-
ples were absent of total
coliform, and the water is
considered safe to drink at
this time.

What should I do?
There is nothing you need
to do at this time. Total col-
iform bacteria are general-
ly not harmful themselves.
Coliforms are bacteria that
are naturally present in the
environment and are used
as an indicator that other,
potentially harmful, bacte-
ria may be present.

What happened? What is
being done?
On December 19th the
City of Quincy had a
monthly bacteriological
sample come back posi-
tive for total coliform bac-
teria. We were notified by
our contract lab of the pos-
itive sample and collected
two retest samples. One
sample was upstream and
the other was at the initial
site of the positive test.
Both of these tests came
back negative. The sam-
ple point in question just
happens to be the last
point on this particular line.
On dead end lines the
rules previously stated
that you only should col-
lect the upstream and the
initial point if the sample
point is on the end of the
line since no downstream
location exist. On normal
sample points you must
collect three samples one
upstream, one at the initial
sample point and one
downstream. The Quincy
water systems sampling
plan was set up to meet
this rule and our proce-
dures have followed this
plan. Recently we were
notified by FDEP that
because of a rule change
we did not collect enough
retest samples on the 24th
of January. We were
unaware of the change in
the FDEP rules that
changed the number of
retest samples required
on samples collected on
the last connection on a
line. Since this incidence
we have updated our
sampling plan to indicate
that there should always
be three samples collect-
ed no matter where the
sample point is located.

For more information,
please contact Mr. Denvil
Presnal at 850-627-5089.

Please share this informa-
tion with all the other peo-
ple who drink this water,
especially those who may
not have received this
notice directly (for exam-
ple, people in apartments,
nursing homes, schools,
and businesses). You can
do this by posting this
notice in a public place or
distributing copies by hand

RFM students tour Ala.

The freshmen class at Robert F. Munroe Day School traveled to
Alabama for an educational excursion February 1st through 3rd, as
an extension of the ninth grade study of World Literature. They first
went to the battleship, U.S.S. Alabama, in Mobile followed by an
afternoon at the IMAX and Science Center.
The Pompeii exhibit now on display enhanced their visit to the
IMAX about the life in Greece during the classical periods. On
Friday, they traveled to Monroeville to tour the old courthouse,
which included Truman Capote's and Harper Lee's biographical
information and a look at their former home sites. The class stud-
ied To Kill a Mockingbird, written by Harper Lee, earlier in the year
and had watched the movie. The courthouse was the model for the
one in the book and movie. After lunch at the Courthouse Caf6, they
moved on to Montgomery for an evening of ice-skating. Saturday
they attended the Alabama Shakespeare Festival where they
watched a live performance of James and the Giant Peach and spent
the morning at the museum.
Chaperones for the trip were Neal Faircloth, Tommy McLendon,
Mary Carol Young, Cindy McPhaul, and Karen Watson. Suzie
Johnson is the English I teacher and sponsor of the annual trip.
Pictured in front of Boo Radley's house on the outside set of the
Monroeville production of the play is the class. Other pictures show
the class inside the famous Courthouse in Monroeville on the bal-
cony and at the Shakespeare Festival in Montgomery.
