FWC seeking

gator hunter

for local area

Longtime Havana
trapper retiring

by LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor

Wanted: Fearless free spirit to capture and
contain alligators at all hours of the day and
night.
The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission is hoping to hire an alligator
trapper to' work in Gadsden, Leon, eastern
Jackson and Jefferson counties. The agency is
looking to replace long-time nuisance alligator
trapper Tony Hunter of Havana, who has
retired.
He was not immediately available for
comment by presstime.
The FWC is looking to contract with an
individual who will respond to nuisance
alligator complaints within the area as part of
its statewide Nuisance Alligator Program.
Alligators are out and about "all year," said
Okeechobee-based Blair Hayman, wildlife
biologist and assistant coordinator for the
Nuisance Alligator Program. "In North
Florida, they're not moving around in the
winter so much."
Nuisance alligators can be found pretty much
anywhere there is a body of water, Hayman
said. Lake Talquin is an FWC alligator
management area, which means biologists
study trends of alligator populations there.
Exact population figures are not known.
Florida is believed to be home to more than 1
million alligators, based on an estimated 6.7
million acres of suitable land.
Lake Talquin is also an area designated as a

Cannon sentenced


to life for murder


Also gets 30 years, no parole


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
Donna Cannon, 32, will spend the rest of
her natural life behind bars. That was the
sentence handed down Tuesday afternoon
by Circuit Judge P. Kevin Davey for
Cannon's role in the robbery and murder of
William Moses Wilson in August 2004.
Cannon was also sentenced to 30 years for
the robbery of Wilson. While Cannon didn't
pull the trigger of the rifle that killed


Wilson and she was not at the scene of the
robbery or the shooting, a jury two weeks
ago believed that she hatched the plan that
led to his death.
Terrell Powell, 13 years at the time,
admitted on the witness stand that he
robbed and killed Wilson and that Cannon
knew about the crime and helped plan it.
Davey described Cannon as the
"puppeteer pulling the strings" of Powell as

by LESLIE ROBERTS

dynamic go-getters to bring

County School system. We'\e got V
the churches involved, we'\ e got

Traffic stop nets big drug bust; two Georgia men arrested


by ALICE DU POINT
Times Editor
A routine traffic stop on Interstate
10 last Thursday afternoon led to the
arrest of two Georgia men and the
seizure of more than three kilos of
cocaine with a street value of over
$69,000.
Arrested were Christopher Ray
Dantizler, 36, of Smyrna, GA and 50-
year-old Marvin C. Irvin of Valdosta,


GA.
According to a
report released by
the Florida
Highway Patrol,
Trooper Joel
Clark stopped a
1999 Chevy
Tahoe, driven by
Irvin, about 2:45
p.m. near
Midway 'heading


Dantizler


east.
-As Clark talked to both men he
smelled the odor of marijuana
mingled with air freshener.
He said that Irvin was "extremely
nervous" and would not look at him.
Clark then talked with Dantizler and
Irvin separately and the two told
conflicting stories.
The trooper also saw one of the men
(he did not identify which one) throw
something out of the car window and


toward to wood line. Both men were:
then arrested.
A search of the vehicle turned up,
the cocaine and both suspects were-
taken to the county jail. Both were
charged with trafficking cocaine,
possession of cocaine, possession
,with intent to distribute, and
tampering with evidence.
Dantizler was released on his own
recognizance and Irvin is still in jail
being held on a $502,500 bond.

Food drive for Refuge House


Tanya Bradwell, vice president of the Tau Theta Omega Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority,
Inc. received a $25 donation from Roy Moore of Piggly Wiggly. The organization held it's annual
canned Food Drive to benefit the Refuge House Saturday afternoon. Shoppers donated two carts
of canned goods and cash donations. The organization then purchased almost $300 worth of
canned goods to donate. Carnell Jones of the Quincy office said the items are especially needed
because the food pantry here is nearly depleted. Bradwell earned the $25 donation after she won
an impromptu "twist" contest to the delight of customers and store employees. (Photo by Alice

'Red' luncheon and fashion show held


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

This month, many women in the
the Big Bend have been wearing
red to bring attention to heart
disease. Tallahassee Memorial
Hospital's Heart and Vascular
Center hosted a series of
luncheons that included a "Red"
fashion show in the region.
Gadsden County's luncheon and
fashion show was held Friday at
the Gadsden Arts Center. Dr.
Alma Littles, senior associate
Dean for Academic Affairs at
Florida State University and
native of Gadsden County was
the speaker.
One of the highlights of the
event was the "Red" fashion
show in which Quincy's Mayor
Sherrie Taylor and Maria
Pouncey of the Panhandle Area
Educational Consortium
participated.
Littles, who lost her father to
heart disease when she was 14,
said the disease and lowering the
incidents locally is a cause she
has embraced.
"The Centers for Disease
Control released a report this
week that places the southeast in
one of the highest pervalent areas
for heart disease in the country.
Nationally, eight million women
are currently living with heart
disease," she said.
Heart disease is the leading
cause of death of American
women and kills 32 percent. Each


year, according to statistics,
nearly 500,000 deaths are caused
by cardiovascular disease (heart
attack and stroke).
She also gave the following
statistics:
*African-American women
between the ages of 55 and 64 are
twice as likely as white women to
suffer a heart attack.
*Women who smoke risk
having a heart attackl9 years
earlier than women who don't
smoke.
*Women with diabetes are two
to three times more likely to have
a heart attack.
*23% of white women, 38% of
black women, and 36% of
Mexican-American women are
obese.
*High blood pressure is more
common in obese women.
*30% of white women, 57% of
black women, 57% of Hispanic
women, and 49% of Asian/Pacific
Island women are sedentary and
get. no leisure time physical
activity.
SLittles explained that coronary
artery disease is the main form of
heart disease. "It is a disorder of
the blood vessels of the heart and
can lead to a heart attack. A heart
attack happens when an artery
becomes blocked, preventing
oxygen and nutrients from getting
to the heart," she said.
There are several risk factors.
Littles said risk factors are
conditions or habits that make a
person more likely to develop a


disease. These factors can also
increase the chances that an
existing disease will get worse.
Those risk factors include:
*high blood pressure
*high blood cholesterol
*diabetes
*smoking
*overweight
*physically inactive
*family history of early heart
disease
*55 years or older
*after menopause
After losing her father, Littles
said she is aware of the impact
the disease has on the family. "As
a family physician, I also know
the huge role prevention plays in
snuffing out the physical and
emotional killer. I encourage
every woman to make a special
effort to take inventory of your
family's heart disease risk and
make a visit to your family
physician as commitment to your
goal of keeping yourself and your
family free of the deadly
disease."

Wearing Red" luncheon.

campaign," and plans to run a
print campaign, public service
announcements, speaking events
and radio spots.
Gardner said chamber members
have also set up a website,
www.mentorgadsden.com, to
help steer people toward the
mentoring campaign.
"We feel like this is the first
time this program will have some
teeth to it," Gardner said. "We've
been talking about doing this for
a year."
Local superintendent of schools
Reginald James began the
mentoring initiative, enlisting the
aid of area churches to see
students through rough patches
and encourage them to succeed.
',It's bigger than me now," he
reflected Friday.
He sees the new partnership
with the chamber as a way to
keep that impetus going and
reach even more children 'who
might be at-risk.
"Our children have made great
strides, but in order to sustain
their progress, we've got to

joint mentoring effort. (Photo by Leslie Roberts)


involve the entire community,"
James said. "It truly does take a
village to raise a child."
Gardner concurred.
"Our children need a total buy-
in from the community. We have
outstanding business partners in


this community that know if the
children succeed, we will all
have a better community to work
and live in."
James credits mentoring as at
least part of the reason students
at Stewart Street Elementary


School went from a state ranking
of "F" to a high "C" in a year's
time.
The idea behind mentoring,
according to a school system
press release, is to "positively
impact the students who, in turn,
become the productive citizens
who subsequently create a
community which will be a
magnet for new businesses and
homeowners with less crime and
better schools."
The meshing of business,
school and faith communities,
which often intermingle anyway,
in order to promote a strong
future for Gadsden County is one
Chamber Board Chairman and
local businessman Monte
Bradwell supports
wholeheartedly.
"Our community is only as
strong as the ones that follow us.
If we want better communities
then we have got to roll our
sleeves up and start at a point
where we can truly make a
difference, and that is in the life
of a child."

public hunt site by FWC. Public
alligator hunts are held Aug. 15-
Oct. 31 in graduated phases so as
not to alarm the wily reptiles.
"The first week, hunting is
restricted to certain times and
areas. That's expanded, week by
week alligators get wary and
by the end of the public hunt,
there is an open phase," Hayman
said.
This time of year, alligators in
north Florida aren't moving
around much. If it's sunny, they
might sun on the bank; otherwise,
they stay pretty still until April or
so, said Hayman.
"Up there (in north Florida)
they're not actively feeding unless
it's nice out. Gators can ,have
caves excavated in the side of the
banks where they live. They'll be
courting in April and May,
breeding in June and.July. During
that time, they're more active.
Large males might move around
in search of females dominant
males might travel further. They
will get out of the water and you
will see them at night walking
jross the road they'll travel
a.rossi lhe land," she said.
:The FWC website reports three
unprovoked alligator bites and
one resulting fatality along with
one provoked bite in 2006.
However, three women were
killed in Florida by alligators last
year: Annmarie Campbell, 23,
who was seized and drowned by
an alligator on Juniper Run in
Ocala National Forest May 14,
2006 while snorkeling; Yovy
Suarez Jiminez, 28, a Florida
Atlantic University student who
was jogging along a canal in the
Fort Lauderdale area when an


alligator attacked her and dragged
her into the water, and Judy
Cooper, a 43-year-old woman
whose dismembered body was
found in a canal in Pinellas
County.
In 2005, 10 alligator bites were
reported in Florida, seven
unprovoked and three provoked,
with one fatality.
In Gadsden County, a relatively
low number of nuisance alligator
complaints was received 29.
"That seems low ,to me,"
Hayman said. "It just seems odd."
Particularly when you compare
that number to the number of
complaints in Gadsden County in
2005 125.
Hayman said she thinks the data
is accurate; she's just not sure
why fewer nuisance alligators
were reported in Gadsden County
last year.
In 2005, the FWC received
more than 18,000 nuisance
alligator complaints. Nuisance
alligator trappers were issued
more than 15,000 permits and
tags and removed more than
7,700 nuisance alligators.
An alligator is considered a
nuisance when it's at least 4 feet
in length and poses a threat to
people, pets or property.
Hayman said while it's a good
idea to fence in your yard if you
live on a lake or pond, alligators
don't always behave predictably.
Asked whether they were
capable of climbing a chainlink
fence, Hayman said, "I have
heard of that in rare.instances. It's
certainly not impossible."
And it's hard to tell why
alligators sometimes, attack boats.
"It could be that the boat is in


low water and is right over the
alligator it could just be that
sometimes there's strange
behavior there's no explanation
for," she said.
SHayman was hesitant to
categorize the kind of person who
traps alligators, but did offer this:
"I guess you could say they are
a certain kind of free spirit who is
interested in being an alligator
trapper. It's a different sort of
job."
The FWC is hoping to find
someone who lives within the
area to serve as a nuisance
alligator trapper.
"We want someone familiar
with the area, preferably with
some experience trapping
alligators, who knows what
they're getting into," she said.
"They need to have the right
equipment a boat, a truck,
harpoons, capture equipment,
things like that."
Other nuisance alligator trapper
qualifications include being able
to respond efficiently to alligator
complaints, having no criminal,
record nor fish or wildlife la*i.
violations, assuming personal
liability when trapping alligator'
and eligibility for an alligator
trapping license.
Alligator trappers are also asked
to "present a positive image to the
public and the media."
Primary financial compensation
for nuisance trappers is through
the sale of alligator products
(hides and meats) from alligators
taken. The FWC also pays a
minimal reimbursement fee for
each alligator trapped.

The monster returns


I wasn't joking last month when I wrote
in this space that I was afraid to open my
utility bill. I was finally forced to open
what I have named "the monster." I had
good reason to be afraid because my bill
topped $300. Almost two-thirds of it was
gas.
I can stand cold weather, it's heat that I
hate. And since the only gas I use is for
heating, hot water and my clothes dryer, I
thought it was excessive. I complained to
Ann Sherman, director of customer
service, and she was sympathetic. She
offered to have the meter re-read, for the
second times in as many months.
As fate would have it, the main source of
my gas consumption was removed when
my gas heater sputtered and died last
month, right in the middle of winter. The
rainbow in the cloud was that without
using all that gas, I could save money and
do something useful, like buy a new
heating unit.
So for a month, I have been practically
living in one room in my home and using
only a small heater for warmth. So when I
got my bill this month, I ripped it open,
eager to see my savings. I was shocked
beyond words when this month's bill was
even higher than last month's bill. And, to
add insult to injury, the statement indicated
that I used 8,100 gallons of water too.

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


There is no way I have used that much
water. And, I do not have any water leaks
anywhere.
Not that it made me feel any better, when
I stopped by the city's customer service
office, I overheard that some citizens have
over $400 in gas usage this month. One
man's bill went from $15 to $400 in one
month.
Houston, we have a problem.
I am on a fixed income. My paycheck
does not change from month to month. I
do not live extravagantly. I try to budget
but with utility bills like the ones I have
been getting, I might have to look for a
parttime job just to pay the bill.
I invited my city commissioner, Sherrie
Taylor, to stop by my house to feel for
herself the cold in my abode. She agreed
that something has to be done to provide
relief to citizens.
What our city officials are going to do
about this, I have no way of knowing.
They all say that they are getting
complaints from citizens, but since the
only income the city has is derived from
utilities, we have to continue paying these
bills to keep the city going.
This is my horror story. If you have one
to share, please sent it to me at the
Gadsden County Times, 15 S. Madison
Street, Quincy, FL 32351.

They think I'm Aunt



Shirley's son-in-law


Friend of mine asked me to ride up to
Ashland, Kentucky, with him to visit some
relatives. First thing I thought of was,
"Why would anyone in his right mind want
to go to Kentucky in February?" And it
occurred to me Ashland is near 'bout in
Ohio.....which is even worse! Then I
remembered getting snowed in for a week
once in Hawks Nest, West Virginia. Now
that was a real treat! But I owed this guy
some money and I was afraid he might
"call in his note" if I didn't ride along......
We were somewhere south of Lenoir
City, Tennessee, and I was trying to
visualize which lay further north, Ashland
or Hawks Nest, when it hit me, "I wasn't
kin to nobody up in Kentucky!"
We started seeing snow on the ground
before we got to Berea. We turned at
Winchester and started up into those
Eastern Kentucky hills. I don't think global
warming had reached this far yet. We
stopped for gas and I was fixing (good
Kentucky word) to ask if we couldn't
finally get something to eat but my tongue
was froze to the back of my mouth!
Little streams were frozen over. Cows
were huddled in bunches for warmth.
Smoke was boiling out of every chimney
we passed. Icicles hung off power lines.
They were issuing ear muffs at the Renfro
Valley Barn dance and all feuding families
were ordered to cease and desist from
shooting at one another until the trees
begin to bud in the spring.
"How well do you like these relatives?"
I was thinking we had gone far enough
here. But it wasn't snowing at the moment.
And the roads were clear. We pushed on.
"Are we going to eat today?"
We were in some kind of all fire hurry to
get there! We were like two swallows
headed to San Juan Capistrano---except we
were definitely not marking the coming of
spring!
Linda gave me a hug. Gosh, I thought of
her mother. And Lee warmly shook my
hand. These Kentucky people are pretty
easy to fool. I don't think they have figured
out yet that I'm not actually a part of the
family. "Are ya'll hungry? Kesley, I know
you will eat some dessert." See what I
mean.
"Oh shucks," I tried to be on my best
behavior, "Maybe just a piece, or three or
four....."
We spent the night at Miss Lucille's
Uptown Boarding House and All Night
Eatery. She is also kin. And she gave me
the bed. My buddy got the couch. I love


these Kentucky people!
Miss Lucille announced over breakfast
that it was 1 degree outside. I headed back
to the covers, "Wake me up in April."
People, they started getting ready to go to
church like it was a nice summer day along
theBig Sandy River! It was 7 degrees
when we pulled up to the Rose Hill Baptist
Church. My teeth were chattering. My
breath refused to come out of my throat.
My eye balls were frozen open. It was too
cold to kill hogs..... A good friend would
have shared his gloves with me.
I figured we'd be' the only ones at the
early service. The smart people would be
home by the fire. I was wrong. These folks
are pretty hardy.....or pretty stupid. I was
still pondering on which when Brother
Ronnie got up to preach. He immediately
went to the six chapter of Galatians and
spoke on giving of yourself first.....and
then give your money! I felt right at home.
They were Baptist to the core!
After the service we hurried over to the
Centenary United Methodist Church to
worship with more family. Wayne tied -
Anna Nicole Smith to the beatitudes. Now
that is some more preaching! The sermon
title was "Ugly." I kept hoping he wasn't
going to ask for a show of hands.
We ate at the church afterwards. Miss
Lucille paid for everybody. Aunt Nell Ruth
showed up to tell us where to sit. Uncle
Buck filled me in on his attachment to
Patton's 3rd Army in World War II. Linda
once again reminded me of Miss Vi. We
gathered up for a family picture after lunch.
I got in the back row, right in the middle
and smiled like I had just come over from
Flatwoods for the meal.
We barley had time to go back to the
boarding house and change before we
hurried out to the Fairview Baptist Church
for the night service. Folks, this was about
the best churching I had done in years! We
went to hear Denver sing. He was family.
People got to jumping up and down and
catching the spirit.... I'm telling you, an old
fashion tent meeting broke out!
We passed several churches on the way
back to Miss Lucille's. I asked why so
many? "The Hatfields and the McCoys
aren't the only feud we've had up here."
We spent the next day visiting and
"catching up". I had to find out about Aunt
Jackie. And Cousin Leland. And Uncle
Franklin. And Harry Gene. I kept hoping
Aunt Jo Ann would show up with a pot of

So I took a paintbrush and a paint can
up to one of our fences this weekend, it
was 60ish outside and sunny, and spent
some time turning natural wood a
different color.
It's a peaceful thing, painting I
understand the allure artists must find
in it, although I don't share their talent.
I'm strictly amateur even in the art
admiration category.
The sun warmed my back as I
delivered coat after coat to weather-
worn wood, no worries, no noise, no
fray.
It occurred to me that children often
exhibit a talent for art at an early age -
I've 'seen astounding work drawn and
painted by Gadsden County kids, some
on display at the Gadsden Arts Center,
others hanging in the schools around
the county. Is it because they're not
afraid to try, or because their emotions
bubble to the surface more readily than
those of most adults?
Eh, who knows. I could relate to local
artist Freddie Ash's story about his
early painting career, in which he drew
stick figures all over the walls of the
house as a child, spurring his mom to
buy him a paint by number set to
persuade him to do his interior
decorating on a canvas.
I get that if you work to achieve a
certain decorative theme in your home,
stick figures probably detract from that
unless your decorative theme is early
caveman.
Particularly if you have more than
one child, that's a tricky area they
would ALL want to paint on the wall,
then you'd wind up with one.child's
magnum opus touching another's,,
screaming, skirmishing and ill-
conceived placement of a paintbrush
soon to follow.. The whole sordid thing
would wind up on the cover of a
tabloid complete with a picture of a
purple-and-green-besmudged mom in
the background.
But when my son expressed an

interest in painting, I was awed and a
little puzzed. That's not a gene he got
from me.
You should see the Easter basket he
painted when he was 3. I kid you not, it
is a MASTERPIECE, a variety of
'colored eggs sitting atop a brown,
woven basket. With a handle. (Yes. I
am completely objective about my
son's 'artwork.)
He expanded his work to stick figures
and stick animals, horses and dogs
running, their narrow necks and long
snouts making them recognizable as
non-human creatures of the four-
legged kind.
He did this, of course, all over the
walls.
I arranged planned painting sessions
that included white paper placed on
layers and layers of newspaper, and he
painted plenty of pictures on those,
too.
But the walls captured his fancy all
that room, all that wide-open space. I'd
take a break from the kitchen or the
computer or whatever and find him
earnestly making his mark on the
interior of our house, completely
absorbed in what he was doing.
And I left his work right there.
That will drive some people nuts,
make some people happy and have no
impact whatsoever on others. That's
how it goes in columnland.
But I like it.
I like that his favorite color is yellow,
that he is interested in sharing his
vision of the things as he perceives
them to be, that he is not afraid to try.
I left those early art expressions there
as sort of a monument.to the freedom
of childhood, to remind him should he
forget that he once discovered
unadulterated joy in drawing a picture
of his dog, a horse, the sun, the moon.
I left it there because I want to
remember that as well. There is both a
future and a past in a child's rendition
of a red horse running.

New County Library

Dear Editor:
If County Commissioner Bill McGill were still alive
today, I believe he would be embarrassed to have his name
on the new county library in Quincy. The grounds are an
absolute disgrace to the residents of our county. We spent
close to two million dollars on this new facility, and
apparently there is not a provision for a few dollars to
maintain the grounds.
We deserve better insight to these details from our
county politicians. Hopefully some of our county leaders
will read this and try to rectify this situation. The weeds
and dead bushes have overtaken the flower beds, and the
pine straw in the beds is so old that it has turned grayish-
white color. If this matter is not resolved, perhaps the city
code enforcement officer could issue the county a citation.

The big picture


meant. The closer I got to the
Civic Center, the more people I
saw milling around the building,
mostly just standing around, it
appeared to me.
How nice, I thought.
See TITANS on Page 9

IStand


Remember

the Titans?

I do

I guess I was ready for a little
football.
This past weekend, I decided to
take in a new experience by
going to see the Tallahassee
Titans play their first-ever home
game. The Titans are a
professional arena football
teamed based in, you guessed it,
Tallahassee, and they opened
their home schedule Saturday
night.at the Civic Center after
winning their first game as a
franchise at Carolina the week
before.
I'd never been to an arena
football game, but I had seen a
few games on ESPN. I'm not sure
I ever watched an entire game on
television, but as I
said, it was
something new to
do and only a few' '
minutes down the
road, so I
headed out
from Quincy at
about 6 p.m.,
thinking I could easily make the
7 p.m. kickoff.
My plan was a leisurely drive to
Tallahassee, arriving around 6:25
or 6:30, then walking up to the '
ticket window and buying oneof
the best seats in the house. I
mean, this was arena football;
there probably wouldn't be too
big a crowd, right?
But that's not the way it went
down.
First and foremost, I hadn't
been to the Civic Center in about
a decade (literally) and got a
little, well, lost. I know, I know;
Tallahassee's not that big, and
I've always thought the entire city
consisted of Monroe Street and a
block or two to the left or the
right.
Again, I was wrong, but after a
few-scratches of the head and
hopeful turns here and there, I
noticed that there were big green
sign every couple of blocks that
read "Civic Center" with a very
distinct, reflective arrow that, as
it turned out, pointed the way to
the Civic Center. That should've
been a clue from the beginning;
but apparently, I'm not very
observant in my middle-aged
years. (Either that or I'm just
more male than ever before and
blocked those signs out with the
age-old masculine thought, "I
DON'T NEED DIRECTIONS."
But despite the testosterone fog,
I eventually found my way to the
venue, where the first thing I saw
was a big,.lighted sign that read,
"Main Parking Lot Full."
Another flaw in my plan,
apparently. I had enough trouble
finding that full main parking lot;
how was I supposed to find the
unfull, off-the-beaten path
parking lot? So again I let my
manly instincts take control and
found a parking lot at a building
complex.
Problem was, there were more
signs, and these read,
"Authorized Parking Only.
Towaway Zone."
Not to worry, I thought. There's
an arena football game a couple
of blocks away, an arena football
game that was possibly a bigger
deal than I'd first thought. Just for
my own peace of mind, I checked
other vehicles in the lot and saw
no decals or permits hanging
from the rear-view mirrors, so I
confidently parked, gathered my
camera gear, and started the long
walk toward my first-ever arena
football game.
As I crossed the "Full" main
parking lot, I began to
understand what that sign really

Planning and zoning board discusses regulations for subdivisions


by LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor
The Gadsden County
Planning and Zoning
Commission continued at its
Feb. 15 regular meeting with
some housekeeping chores it's
been working on.
Commissioners tackled some
of the issues discussed at the last
meeting righting errors in the


original Comprehensive Plan
and Land Use Map and estab-
lishing regulations for subdiv-
ions of land in the county.
The group discussed and
reviewed an administrative
request to amend the Gadsden
County Comprehensive Plan and
Future Land Use Map by chang-
ing the land use designation on
four areas throughout the county.
The request was made as a


result of errors in the original
Land Use Map, Growth
Management Director Bill
McCord said. The error were
made when the original map was
converted to the map currently in
use. Other items were addressed
at the request of a property
owner.
"Most of these amendments
are a little over 20 acres,"
McCord said.


"One is at the coiner of
Concord and Iron Bridge roads -
the owner wanted two houses on
the property. It's a triangular
piece of property, and the north-
ern part is agricultural 2, the
southern is ag-3. You couldn't
technically get two houses on it
and be in compliance with the
land use amendment. The owner
wants to change the land use
from ag-3 to ag-2."


Commissioners approved the
request unanimously.
It will be considered by coun-
ty commissioners at the March 6
County Commission meeting.
Commissioners also
approved changing a portion of a
13.6-acre lot from industrial land
use to public land use and chang-
ing 495-acre properties used for
sand mining at the end of
Sadberry Road to commercial.


Although the properties have
been in the ag-3 land use catego-
ry for years, they have also been
mined for years. Commissioners
voted unanimously to change the
land use designation to industri-
al.
They also approved changing
39 acres owned by St. Joe Land
Company from rural residential
to ag-3 land use.


GCSO plans checkpoints, crackdown


If you feel the need to speed,
think twice this month, cautions
Deputy Calvin Carter of the
Gadsden County Sheriffs
Office.
"We're going to be out there
and we're going to be handing
out tickets," Carter said of the
crackdown. Specifically, the
uniformed patrols will check for
valid driver licenses and DUI
along with other violations.
"We recognize the danger
presented to the public by
defective equipment. Deputies


will also concentrate their
efforts on checking such things
as bad brakes, worn tires, and
defective lighting equipment,"
Carter said.
Here are the roads that will
be checked beginning
Tuesday, February 20:
*Interstate 10 at Quincy,
Midway, Chattahoochee, and
Greensboro exits
*Highway 90 east and west
of Midway to Chattahoochee
*Highway 12 east and west

March of Dimes Kick-off Breakfast held


Over 60 people gathered early
last Thursday morning in Quincy
for the annual March of Dimes
kick-off breakfast.
Team captains from across the
county were treated to eggs, grits,
bacon, and coffee to get energized
for this year's Gadsden County
WalkAmerica to be held on
Saturday, April 28 on the court-
house square.
This year's honorary chairman
for WalkAmerica County
Commissioner Ed Dixon pulled
no punches why the annual
WalkAmerica is so important for
Gadsden County. "Babies are in
trouble in this county," Dixon said,
"and we need to get up and go do
something about it."
Dixon cited the high infant
mortality rate and the number of
premature babies in Gadsden
County. He said that the United
States has the poorest record of
infant health in the world com-
pared to other industrialized coun-
tries. He also said that Florida has


one of the highest rates of prema-
ture births and infant deaths in the
country and Gadsden County has
one of the highest rates in Florida.
"We can find a way to help babies
in Gadsden County," Dixon said.
Fifteen-month-old twins Anna
and Owen Miller were then intro-
duced as this year's WalkAmerica
youth ambassadors. The twins
were born prematurely and spent
six weeks in the intensive care
unit. Anna weighed two pounds,
ten ounces, while her brother
Owen weighed in at three pounds,
two ounces. They are the children
of Jessica and Tony Miller of
Quincy.
Recounting how a premature
birth affects all of us, Dixon chal-
lenged the team captains to make
this one of the most successful
WalkAmerica events ever. "What
is the "goal...$50,000?" Dixon
asked. "I say we. can do better
than that." He said more money
than that is spent on one premature
baby for one stay in the intensive


County discusses hospital


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

The Board of County
Commissioners accepted the rec-
ommendation of Gadsden
Hospital, Inc. to continue its
efforts to re-open Gadsden
Community Hospital but to also
look at building a new hospital.
Gadsden Hospital, Inc., which
will be the governing body of the
hospital if it is to re-open, held an
emergency meeting Monday after-
noon to hear new developments
which grew out of a Friday morn-
ing meeting between Sen. Al
Lawson, Rep. Curtis Richardson,
and Sen. Durell Paeden, the health
and human services appropriations
chairman.
Commissioner Ed Dixon said
he and several members of the
healthcare profession went to
Tallahassee to ask that full funding
be restored to the Healthy Start
Coalitions throughout the state.
"We had asked Joe Sharp, the
-county'shealthcare consultant-and-.
Sattorney Paul Sexton to go because
we felt that the conversation might
turn to the hospital," Dixon said.
He was right. It wasn't long
after the meeting began that the
talk turned to the hospital and its
status.
That's when, Dixon said,
Paeden mentioned the idea of
building a new hospital that would
be 35 miles from the nearest hos-
pital and would have no problem
getting the critical access designa-
tion.
Part of the red tape with getting
the current hospital open is the
critical access designation. The
county had the designation as long
as the facility was open. One
month after the hospital closed,
that designation was lost. Because
the facility has been closed for so
long, there is no chance they will
be able to be grandfathered in
again. Time is of the essence
because Paeden needs the county
to fast track its efforts if he is to
push for a new hospital, in another
location, beginning with the leg-
islative session next month. He
also suggested-the county might
want to discuss the feasibility of
identifying a niche hospital that
would cater to a certain type of
patient. Dixon said Paeden singled
out the hospital jn Chipley as an
example of a niche hospital that is
solvent. The hospital went from
eight doctors to 89.


With the clock ticking, Paeden
wants the county to meet with the
medical community to come up
with suggestions within 7 to 10
days. Commissioner Eugene
Lamb said he doesn't want the
county to pursue,a new hospital.
"We have put so much work and
time and money into getting the
facility we have, open. I feel we
should renovate and update the
hospital we have. I don't want to
see us spending money on sur-
veys, studies, and litigation. We
need to think real hard about this,
it could be three or four years
before we get a new hospital built,
if it ever gets built," he said.
Monday night, Commissioner
Doug Croley said he met with top
level officials from the Florida
State University College of
Medicine and discussed the niche
being that of rural health care and
somehow using the College of
Medicine as well as the Florida A
& M University School of
Pharmacy to pull it off. He added,
-however,-that-he- didn!. think-10--
days was a reasonable length of
time to put a plan into place to
present to Paeden.
Dixon said that while a new
hospital seems far off, Paeden sug-
gested that county officials think in
terms of 25 to 30 years from now
and the economic viability a new
hospital would bring.
Sen. Fred Dudley, who also sits
on the Board of Directors for
Gadsden Hospital, Inc., suggested
that since the health department
needs more space, one considera-
tion would be co-locating them to
the current hospital too.
Another GHI, board member,
Scott Whitehead, told commssion-
ers that he fully supported continu-
ing the efforts to re-open Gadsden
Community, but at the same time
looking into Paeden suggestion for
a new hospital in a new location.
"We definitely need to pursue
both," he said.
Patricia Stephens Due said that
not having a hospital is affecting
everyone. One of her daughters,
whose son became ill just before
the Christmas, refused to come
home fearing he might fall ill
again and no hospital close by
could mean disaster.
"We owe our citizens the best
care we can get now, not in the'
next 3, 4, or 5 years. I am con-
cerned about Gadsden County.
We're not going forward, we're
going backward," Due said.

WGHS construction reaches milestone


by LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor

The best thing about the new
West Gadsden High School
facility?
It's being built right across
the street from the old one, giv-
ing students, teachers and staff
members a chance to watch its
progress.
The worst thing?
It's being built right across
the street from the old school -
sometimes the anticipation is
hard to take, WGHS Principal
Rocky Pace said Friday during
a "topping out" ceremony at the
new school.
The topping out party cele-
brated getting a roof on the.new
school as well as the construc-
tion workers who put it there.
The majority of the crowd gath-
ered for the event were site
workers, along with school offi-
cials and Greensboro Mayor
Buddy Pitts. After speakers had
their say, the crowd.was served
a buffet-style luncheon in the
school cafeteria.
The school is scheduled for
completion toward the middle
of June. Students will get a
chance to see what it's like
when they start school late in
August.
"It will be nice having a new
facility to move into at the first
of the year," Pace said.
WGHS currently has around
480 students enrolled; if it adds

sixth grade to its population, as
has been discussed, the school
would be home to around 500 or
so students, Pace said.
Pace served as principal at
Greensboro High School, which
is where WGHS currently is
housed, from 1996-2002.
When Chattahoochee and
Greensboro schools were com-
bined, the resulting school was
named West Gadsden High
School.
He also served three years as


an administrator at the
level before returning
school he'd led before
building, new name as
pal in 2004.

Gadsden County Schools
Superintendent Reginald James
said Friday during the topping
out party the new facility has
been long-anticpated.
"This is a very special day,"
he said.
"This is going to be a truly
beautiful facility. We think all
the students in the west part of
the county and their parents are
going to be very proud of this
school."
School Board member Judge
Helms said he's glad to see the
west side of the county getting
the kind of new high school
facility the east side did two
years ago with the completion


of East Gadsden High School.
"We are proud of West
Gadsden and we are also proud
of East Gadsden," Helms said.
"Our students and parents
deserve this ... it's been an excit-
ing time for us, bringing the
west side of the county in line
with the east side."
Jay Smith, vice president of
Ajax Building Corporation,
which is in charge of the proj-
ect, said the new school will be
117,000 square feet in size and
is the product of "a lot of differ-
ent entities within Gadsden
County," including the School
Board and local subcontractors.
Last week's topping out
party's purpose was two-fold:
To celebrate the project's pro-
gression and reward construc-
tion workers who made it hap-
pen.
"Topping out means you've
reached the highest point. It's a
reward for all the men and
women on the job, and it's a
milestone that we've reached
the top of the structure and are
now working on the interior,"
he said.
The Ajax Building
Corporation has seven offices in
Florida, including one in
Midway, and is currently work-
ing on projects in 15 school dis-
tricts and on projects involving
universities, hospitals, busi-
nesses and local governments
throughout the state.

he carried out the crime.
Wilson was murdered as he sat in
his back yard after a week's work,
enjoying a cigar and a cold beer.
Powell said on the witness stand
that he ran up to Wilson with a rifle
drawn and that Wilson "swung a
white pipe" at him.
He admitted lying in the bushes
behind a house where Wilson lived
with his brother and sister-in-law
and niece waiting to rob Wilson's
brother, Aaron. But when Moses, as
the family referred to him, came out
and sat on steps in the back yard,
Powell killed him and took his
wallet which contained $40 and
credit cards.
Powell testified he took the wallet
to Cannon who kept the contents
and told him the "keep his mouth
shut." Wilson lay in the back yard
all night and was discovered by his
niece around noon the-next day,
barely alive. He died shortly after
deputies arrived but was unable to
tell who had shot him.
"William Moses Wilson will be
missed. His death has left a void in
our lives. It's sad that you can't


come home," the family wrote in a
letter to Davey which was read
prior to sentencing.
The end of the trial will start the
healing process, according to the
family. "It is the family's wish that
Donna and Terrell will get the
rehabilitation they need," the letter
continued.
The murder of Wilson was one of


several cold cases that Sheriff
Monis Young promised to look into
when he was a candidate for office.
Wilson's family praised Young for
working with the Florida
Department of Law Enforcement to
solve the case.
No trial date has been set for
Powell.

Midway assistant city manager leaving Blak History Brain Brawl
IiU 1


by LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor


Midway's assistant city man-
ager is moving on.
Natalie Madry, who has
served the city for five years,
will leave her post March 7 to
take ajob as administrative coor-
dinator for Broward County. She
begins her new job March 12.
"I was ready to leave the
Tallahassee area, to find a bigger
city the budget in the human
resources department alone,
where I'll be working, is $2.7
million," Madry said. "This new
position will actually pay for me
to go to school I want to get a
master's degree and allow me
to develop my skills on a larger
scale. I don't want this to be just
a job."
The 27-year-old said she
plans to seek a master's in public
administration.'


Natalie Madry


Madry, whose parents are
from Quincy, was raised in
Tallahassee and graduated from
Florida A&M University with a
bachelor's degree in public
administration. Prior to that, she
earned an associate's degree in
paralegal studies at Keiser
College.
She was hired at Midway by
former City Manager Leonard


Bennet in January, 2002 as a sort
of "Jill of all trades" while she
was still in school; when current
City Manager Paul Piller was
hired eight months later to
replace Bennet, he promoted her
to assistant city manager.
Piller said he's sorry to see
Madry go.
"Natalie's one of the brightest
people I've ever met," he said.
"Her ability to learn and really
pick up and grab new skills is
amazing. Because of that, it has
allowed me to pick up some of
the outside stuff that has really
allowed Midway to develop eco-
nomically."
Madry's leaving means
Midway's administrative staff
will be cut in half. "Midwayi
really only has two people in the
administrative department,"
Piller said. "If you go to any
other city, there are a lot more
than that. It's going to double


what we do here."
The position is being adver-
tised, and Piller said he hopes to
find a replacement quickly. He
also said there might be some in-
house applicants.
"She's going to be extremely
hard to replace, and I'm going to
miss her," he said. "I like to think
that she learned a lot from me. I
think as a team, Natalie and I
have worked very, very well
together. The employee-boss
relationship was there, but I
think we recognized we were
equals and the bottom line was
to put out the product."
Madry, who has an 8-year-old
daughter, said she's excited
about her new job but will miss
Midway.
"I really will," she said.
"Midway's been good to me.
This allowed me the opportunity
to work in my field while I was
still in school."


TITANS from Page 4


Everybody's just standing around
socializing waiting for the game to
start before going inside.
Wrong again. Those folks were
forming what we in the arena
football crowd like to call a "line."
To be more precise, a "long" line.
And they were waiting to buy,
again with the lingo, "tickets."
And it wasn't 20 or 50 or even 100
fans waiting in that line. It was
hundreds.
Well, that was OK, I guessed. It
was right at 7 p.m., and Id miss the
kickoff and part of the first quarter,
but I could deal with that. After all-
this was my first arena football
game, and it would be worth the
wait.
But there was a problem. Waiting
in line usually leads to thinking,
because other than making small
talk with other people who had no
idea there'd be such a crowd, there's
not much else to do. So I began to
think.
"Let's see, I'm here in Tallahassee.

Bryan told me about "gliding"

I was just getting warmed up
when we got the weather report.

family thought we might not be
able to leave if we didn't go now.

weather or she had had about all

I've lived in this area less than three
months. Basically, I only know the
people I work with, along with a
few folks in Quincy who I've had
the pleasure to chat with briefly.
"So, if my truck gets towed
because Im parked illegally, I'm
gonna call who exactly?"
And at this point, let's go back to
my plans for a leisurely drive to
Tallahassee for the game. Part of
that drive was to include a stop at
an ATM. I was armed with a debit
card, a checkbook and credit cards,
but only the meager sum of $11 and
change when it came to spendable,
Johmny-on-the-spot, pay-off-the-
tow-truck-driver cash.
It's taken me nearly 50 years to
realize it, but my dad was right all
along. '"Take plenty of cash, son,"
was ringing in my ears as I stood in
that slow-moving line waiting for


my arena football experience.
And then I couldn't take it any
longer. I bolted from my spot in the
"long line" to the spot where I
hoped I'd still find my truck. And I
did.
Along about this time I was
thinking, "Well, just give up. It's
going on 7:30, and you don't even
know where else there is to park.
There'll be other arena football
games. Go home. Watch the tube.
Call your friends who were too far
away to give you a ride when your
truck could've been towed tonight."
And I almost did, but in the traffic
jam that was the area surrounding
the Civic Center that night, I fell
into a very slow-moving line of
vehicles that ended up at a parking
garage just a couple of hundred
yards from the Civic Center. It was
a small ray of sunshine that cost me

six of my available 11 bucks, but it
allowed me to see my first arena
football game.
Well, most of it. The Titans had
already scored three touchdowns by
the time I found my seat, and they
went on to blow out Gulf Coast 62-
22. The game was extremely fun to
watch, I ran into our sports editor,
Joe Ferolito, and to top it all off, I
paid for a hot dog with a credit card.
Good times.
Yeah, there was an ATM at the
Civic Center, but on this night, it
was out of service, and I expected
no less.
All I wanted was some football

On a serious note, I'd like to

noon at the University of Florida Research Center. Four teams
participated in the 90-minute event that tested the Black History

earned second place and Second Elizabeth MB Church came in
third. New Zion AME Church also participated. This is the fifth-

WE ARE MARSHALL
I highly recommend the movie
'We Are Marshall' to anyone who ha.s-
nt seen it. I s.aw it Monday at the
Starple\ Cinemas in Tallahassee.
It of course had a Quincy connec-
tion. One of the young men who died
in the Nlaishall Uni\ersity plane crash
\was David Debord. Another, Nate
Ruffin, wasn'tt on the plane because of


an injurN. Ruffin played a bi.- role in
getting Marshall to continue the foot-
ball program after the crash.
Exen though none of us can real-
ly imagine what the university town.
or famnihes really went through during
that a lul time. I felt the mo te did a
great job attempting to.
Again. I highly recommend 'We
Are Marshall.'
ARENA FOOTBALL IS BACK
Arena football returned with a
bang to Tallahassee Saturda r mght.
The home teams Titans blasted Gulf
Coast 62-22. I enjoyed arena football
the first time around and enloved its
return Saturday night.
If ytou haven't tied it. you should.
The game is fast mo\ ing with a lot of
scoring. Ticket prices are teasouable
starting at $10.
The Titans are off this week but
will host Reading Saturday March 3 at
7pm. In all they have 6 more home
games. Four \will be played on
Saturday's and two on Friday's.

West Gadsden rides Jackson, Battles to advance


Larry Jackson used his height
and offensive ability and John
Battles played some key defense
to help get the West Gadsden
Panther, basketball team past
Freeport 65-50 Tuesday night in a
FHSAA's Region 1-2A semi-final
game played in Freeport.
Jackson scored 22 points and
pulled down 11 rebounds in the

road win in the play-offs for West
Gadsden.

first quarter. The home team got
their legs under them though and
out scored West Gadsden 34-17 in
the next 2 quarters to take a 2
point lead into the last period.
That period belonged to West
Gadsden. Coming off the bench
Ricardo Marlow zipped in a pair
of 3-pointers to help the Panthers
to an 11-0 run. They then
expanded on the 9 point lead and
finished the quarter out scoring
Freeport by 25-8.
"We started off like a house
afire," Panther coach Tony Davis
said. "But I give Freeport credit,
they didn't fold." "The are well
coached, and they made some
adjustments that gave us a tough
time in the middle quarters."

"Marlow's 3-pointers early in the
fourth quarter sure helped."
Marlow finished with 13

topped Freeports scoring.
West Gadsden has defeated

Road win to semis
If West Gadsden wins the
FHSAA's Region 1-2A
Basketball Tournament and
reaches the Florida Finals in
Lakeland it will have to be a trav-
eling route.
Finishing second in the
District 4-2A tournament forced
that fate on the. Panthers. They
took the first turn, just right,
Thursday night when they
knocked off Sneads 61-50 in the
Jackson County town.
West Gadsden waited until late
in the game before they sped

away to the win pulling away
from a 3 point lead to notch the
final margin.
The Panthers John Battles fin-
ished the game with 16 points.
Most of those came in the second
half that allowed West Gadsden to
overcome an early Sneads lead.
Team mate Larry Jackson hit 14
points in the game and his 6'6"
height inside bothered the Pirates.
The West Gadsden defense
bottled up Sneads star Brian
Walker much of the night.
Walker did score 16 points and he
and Stefan Lewis who popped in

until late in the fourth quarter.
The next road stop for West

end in the Port St. Joe 2ND

Local couple seals the deal on


by LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor

B.J. Holmes and Christine
Jones had known for several
months they planned to marry.
Valentine's Day seemed the per-
fect time to take their vows.
Feb. 14, the two said "I do" at
Shiloh Community Missionary
Outreach Baptist Church and
Outreach Center at the comer of
Spooner and Shiloh roads.
Holmes, 54, works as a disc
jockey for 93.3 WGWD radio in
Quincy. He had known Jones
and her family for years and
recently became reacquainted.
Jones, 47, works at the can-
teen at Florida State Hospital in
Chattahoochee. She said after
dating a little more than a year,
the two realized they had fallen
in love.
"We didn't know," she said of
their early dating days. "After
we got in the relationship we
talked about it."
Shiloh Pastor Jerome
Pendleton, who said he's known
Holmes "since he was a boy,"
said the pair makes a good cou-
ple.
"They really do," he said.



Health


dept.


warns of


Florida


outbreak

S The Florida Department of
Health (DOH) confirms 'three
cases of Salmonella Tennessee
in Florida that match the nation-
al salmonellosis outbreak strain.
The cases were confirmed in
Alachua, Hillsborough and
Pasco Counties.
Individuals should take the
time to check their peanut butter
to determine whether it matches
the peanut butter the FDA has
identified. Peter Pan and Great
Value peanut butters with the
product code number "2111" on
the lid have been identified as
possibly contaminated with sal-
monella.'
Floridians should remain
aware as to any symptoms that
may arise 12-72 hours after
infection. These include diar-
rhea, fever and abdominal
cramps. As the CDC is currently
recommending, individuals who
have this peanut butter in their
homes and are not showing any
symptoms should discard the
product or return it to the store
of purchase. If you or someone
in your family are showing
symptoms, .do not discard the
product and consult a physician
to determine if a stool test is
necessary. Peanut butter would
be tested only if the stool test
comes back positive and the
strain matches the strain of the
outbreak.


My mother had leukemia and
she was given many units of
blood. When people asked us
how they could help with my
mother, we told them they
could give blood. One of my
co-workers then called and set
up the first blood drive at
Focus Credit Union in
Chattahoochee. Now we have
drives also at our Quincy loca-
tion. This is a wonderful way
for people to help.

We Buy Cars, Trucks & SUVs!


Dear Gadsden, Liberty & Calhoun
County Residents,
Three years ago I obtained my Florida
Dealer's License due to the frustration of
shopping for a used car. The following
three things made car shopping a big
headache for me:
*Haggling for the best price
Having to come up with $2000 to $3000
for a down Payment, taxes, title and tag-


*Paying someone a $5000 $6000 profit
on a $10,000 automobile.
Here's what we've done at Direct
Automotive Wholesale:
*All vehicles are priced at the "Loan
Value", which is the price credit unions and
banks will loan you on this vehicle.
*We require NO DOWN PAYMENT on any
of our vehicles. We can even help with your
taxes and tag most of the time.


*At LOAN VALUE, we make a small profit
and you get a great deal!
The best part is we have family on the
lot, NOT HIGH PRESSURE SALES PEOPLE.
if you don't see the car of your dreams in
this ad, call us. We'll iet you pre-approved,
tell you what it will cost and buy it for you.
We appreciate your supporting us. Come
by or call.

GTI's Career and

offers employers,

chance to interface


Friday's breezy, cold weather made the Workforce Plus bus one of the most popular exhibits at the Gadsden Technical
Institute Career and Technical Expo. Pictured here are Workforce Plus staffers, clockwise, Pamela Thompson, seated,

Times News Editor

Bettie Weaver is confident
about her job skills.
By attending Gadsden
Technical Institute's Career
and Technical Expo Friday,
she was able to try to match,
them with employers in the
area.
"A friend told me about the
expo," said Weaver, seated in
front of a computer on the
Workforce Plus mobile office
at the site of the event. "I'm
licensed for security, I cook, I
can take care of kids, I do
house cleaning I do a good
job at all of them."
With the, help of Chinesta
Skipper, a business consultant
and office manager for the
Wakulla Workforce Plus
office, Weaver was able to
look up available jobs in the
region and see whether any
matched the skills she had to
offer.
That's exactly what GTI
director and principal had in
mind when she started the
expo last year.
"We try to focus on the
community at large," she said.
"My goal is to showcase for
the citizens of Gadsden
County the resources we have

right here in our backyard."
That's right up Pamela
Thompson's alley. As program
evaluation specialist for
Workforce Plus, she works to
spread the word about
available jobs and possible
career paths.
Thompson ticked off a list of
resources available through


_: ,.: .: _. -. ,. ,. *
Ring Power was one of several exhibitors at last week's Gadsden
Technical Institute Career and Technical Expo.


Workforce Plus.
"We offer career exploring,
job searching we target
students that are out of school
to get them engaged, to try to
get them to go back and get
some short-term training, as
well as adults who might
come in to register for
Employer Florida
Marketplace or who are
returning to the career field or
might be looking to change
careers," she said. "Employers
can register with us, job
seekers can find jobs and can
go in and create a job skills
profile.
Around 400 attended the
expo Friday, a bluster, cold
day. Close to 700 attended last
year, Rackley said.
Exhibitors included
RingPower, Workforce Plus,
the state Department of
Education, the state
Department of Corrections,
Thomas Chrysler Dodge Jeep
and Mary Kaye Cosmetics.


Danny Parramore, a sales
associate at Thomas Chrysler
Dodge Jeep, said despite the
cold weather the stream of
people who visited his exhibit
was pretty steady.
"We had a pretty good bit of
traffic," Parramore said.
"There were some potential
customers, and I was there to


talk if anyone wanted to talk
about car sales as a career.,A
lot of kids don't have any idea
as to sale as to what can be
done. You can put in a few
yehrs in. the school of hard
knocks and make a good
living."
One of Rackley's goals with
the expo is, to expose area
residents to new ideas about
career paths and get them
geared to looking toward the
future.
"My whole statement has
always been: After school,
what?" she said. "We started
reading the community to
reach a broad range of people
- from pre-K to adult and we
bring in partners to show
connectivity. We have satellite
sites at every middle school,
every high school, at Florida
State Hospital, and churches
and at senior centers. It's
really all about career
opportunities. Not everyone is
going to college. We really are
a viable entity in this
community and we want to
give people a better life and a
better sense' of
accomplishment by
completing a task."

what GTI has to offer, call

Opal Batchelor Holley
Opal Batchelor Holley, 78, died
Tuesday, February 20, 2007 in
Quincy.
Opal Holley was bom and raised
in Quincy, Florida. She attended
Stetson University before marrying
Henry S. Holley in Quincy, where
they had three children. As a Sears

Clearwater Beach and spending
time there with good friend Pat
Anderson and both of their fami-
lies. She also loved Lake Talquin,

always took time to lend a helping
hand to anyone who needed her.
No challenge was ever too great for
Opal, she was even a volunteer
fireman for the Wetumpka
Volunteer Fire Department. When
she wasn't doing that, she was
catching fish off the dock at Lake
Talquin with her father-in-law, Mr.
Holley, or painting fine bone
French china. Opal was loved by
her family and many friends, who
will always miss and remember
her.

"Go Red" fashion show/luncheon


The Gadsden County Florida
SAlumnae Chapter of Delta
Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. and
the Quincy Chapter of the
American Heart Association
hosted a "Go Red for Women
Luncheon and Fashion Show"
on Saturday, Feb. 17 at the
Simon Scott Senior Citizens
Center in Quincy.


Receiving blood when I gave
birth to my first child
changed my life. My daughter
was born with abirth defect
and had multiple surgeries
during her lifetime. The blood
she received gave us more days
to cherish being with her until
she received her wings in
2002 at the age of 22.
-Beth from Quincy


The speaker was Dr. Angela larly African American women.
Massey, a pharmacist professor The luncheon focused on


at Florida A&M University. The
sorority sponsored this physical
health program to highlight
Delta's work in the promotion
of healthy living and the pre-
vention of heart disease that
victimizes specific segments of
the nations' population, particu-


women having a healthy mind,
body and soul. Over 100
women attended the event. Mrs.
Janey DuPont-Butler is the
chapter president; Mrs. Inez M.
Holt was chairperson for the
event.


FIRST BIRTHDAYS are printed at no charge,
but you MUST bring in a birth certificate
for the child listing both parents, if both
parents are in the birthday announcement.
If the father is not on the birth certificate,
he must produce photo ID in our office.

Announcements are due by NOON Monday
for the Thursday edition.

My name is Minister Cynthia Brooks. I'm a new
creation, of the Lord. I want to share with you my
testimony I accepted jesus Christ in my life and
received the Holy Spirit. I have had some ups and
downs in my life but I never gave in or up because
I know during my trials and tribulations Jesus was
still there. The Lord gave me a higher calling to
preach His words, help the needy, and the lost souls
that are not in Christ. I want you to know that I didn 't initially receive
his gift. I ran from His word and faith for a long, long time until I
could run no longer One day I was at the end of my rope and I gave
my life to Christ. As months passed I accepted one of the holy gifts,
that God had for me, How about you? Have you been running also?
Stop and think: Is the devils tool worth going to hell for? No. A lot of
people say I know Jesus, but ask yourself do you really know Him?
Please ty /esus, He is a healer and savior I did. My Bible tells me that
without holiness no man shall see the Lord (Hebrews 12:14)
May God Bless You.

How The Eye Works

A tough white covering
called the sclera protects
the eye. Part of the white
sclera can be seen in the
front of the eye. A clear,
delicate membrane
called the conjunctiva
covers the sclera, At the
front of the eye is the
cornea. The cornea is
the clear part of the
eye's protective covering.
It allows light to enter
the eye. The iris is the
colored part of your eye
that contracts and
expands so the pupil can
let just the right amount
of light into the eye. The
light is directed by the
pupil to the lens. The
lens focuses the light
onto the-retina (inside
the lining of the eye).
Nerve fibers in the reti-


na carry
images to
through the


light and
the brain
optic nerve.

Wakulla Springs news and notes


By Jeft Hugo

The crimson red seeds of the
red maple trees dangle anxiously
from their parents' limbs. They
wait with anticipation wondering
whether they will live to float in
their pinwheel dance to freedom
and germination. The cold fronts
and freezing temperatures may
cut short those hopes and leave
them empty lifeless shells.
The unseasonably warm
weather of December and
January has created the quandary
that faces the red maple, the red
bud, and other plants here at
Wakulla Springs State Park.
Encouraged by two winter
months of above average tem-
peratures, they gamble an entire
season's reproduction with activ-
ity six weeks prior to what is
average.
Being first to reproduce pro-
vides a great opportunity for the
participating plants. The young
seedlings will have first dibs on
the best locations and a head start
to receive optimal sunshine. Of
course it comes with the risk of
freezing temperatures and the
chance of losing everything.
Good planning seeks to take
advantage of favorable condi-
tions and prepare contingencies
to counter the unfavorable.
Plants do not always have the
adaptability to cope, but people
often do. Just as the plants are a
little ahead of the game this year,
we are busy making plans for
future programs and activities at
the park.
One of those future arrange-
ments is a four-part training ses-
sion for potential volunteer river
guides. On March 10, 17, 24,
and 31; participants will learn
how to safely operate the river
boats, identify the wildlife, and
tell the story, of the Wakulla
River to park visitors.
Outgoing, friendly folks, who
would like to volunteer their
services, should contact the


Jackie Turner
park's volunteer coordinator,
Jackie Turner, no later than
February 22nd. She can be
reached at (850) 561-7281 or
e m a i 1
Jackie.M.Turner @ dep.state.fl.us
STake a step forward and volun-
teer for something that you've
always wanted to do.
If you've never stepped out
and planned to attend an early
evening dinner cruise, don't let
Saturday, March 3rd pass by
without making reservations
(850) 224-5950. By then,
warmer weather should grace the
river with its encouragement.
Trees will be beginning to bud
and birds will be starting their
breeding activities. Perhaps
even the bull gators will be.
inspired to release a bellow or
two.
The buffet dinner following
the cruise may offer delicacies
such as fried shrimp, glazed
chicken breast and our chefs sig-
nature London broil. There will
be plenty of salads and sides all
topped off with scrumptious
desserts including key lime pie.
Your cruise, dinner, tax, and tip
are-all included in the $29 per
person price.
:If yoiu '. would like to-look for-
ward to a free activity at the park
come join us for a "Woods
Walk" with Bob Thompson on


March 10th from 10:00 am to
noon. Bring your camera and
meet in the lobby of the lodge.
Spring will be in full swing. Bob
will be happy to introduce you to
the plants and animals that are
out and about after their winter's
rest. An avid photographer, Bob
will be happy to share a few
pointers!
In the tradition of planning
ahead and being prepared, mark
April 19, 20, and 21 on your cal-
endar. Be one of the guests
enchanted by the Wakulla
Wildlife Festival. Choose to
indulge in one, of the premium
guided tours. Feast on the
smooth jazz sound of Sammy
Tedder 'Live' Friday evening at
Art on the Terrace. Engage in an
enthralling bird of prey or reptile
show Saturday. Whatever your
choice, there will be something
of interest for everyone.
Go online at
www.WakullaWildlifeFestival.c
om to get more information
about the premium tours and free
activities. .You can print your


registration form and call (850)
224-5950 to make festival reser-
vations.
Please don't delay. Even
though there are many free tours,
presentations, activities, and
exhibitors to enjoy, space on the
premium tours is limited. Please
plan ahead to enjoy these rare
opportunities to be engrossed in

your questions.

advantage of the opportunities in

The 5th grade students of St.
John Elementary have been
engrossed in amazing demon-
strations of chemical reactions
from the Mad Science program
on Friday. Students are enthu-
siastic about receiving hands-
on science experiments. The
Mad Science group have their
own scientists to deliver
instruction to the students. In
the photographs, students are
preparing to make their own
homemade orange soda. The
taste was not so great but bet-
ter than expected. Students
learned some tips about how
real sodas are chemically pro-
duced. Through this science
experiment, students received
instruction on the following sci-
ence benchmarks: SCA.1.2.5,
SC.A. 1.2.4 and SC.A 1.2.5.

Challenge issued to students in $2,500 essay competition


High school juniors and seniors
in a four-county area are being
urged to take a two-part challenge
before time runs out March 19.
Challenge No. 1. Write an
essay between 500 and 1,000
words on what the Bill of Rights
means to you,
Challenge No. 2. Give the stu-
dents at Lincoln High School a run
for their money.
It's all part of a friendly war of
words in the 7th Annual Freedom
Scholarship Essay Contest a
$2,500 prize that Lincoln High
students have walked away with
five times since a Rickards High
student wrote the winning essay in
2001, the inaugural year. The
Tallahassee-based law firm of
Brooks, LeBoeuf, Bennett, Foster
& Gwartney has awarded $15,000
in college scholarships since kick-
ing off the contest, and is urging
students in Leon, Wakulla,
Gadsden and Jefferson counties to


step up and challenge Lincoln
High School's dominance in win-
ning the contest year after year.
"With all the high schools in
the area, what are the odds that
Lincoln students would win this
essay contest so many times?"
asked firm partner Matthew
Foster. "We all have dreams, and
as Americans these are more
attainable because of the Bill of
Rights. Our firm would like to see
more juniors and seniors across
the area.step up to the plate and
write about how personal free-
doms outlined in the Constitution
help them to reach their dreams."
Rebecca Lu, now a senior at
Lincoln High School, wrote her
2006 winning-essay from the per-
spective of an Asian American. To
Lu, the Bill of Rights symbolizes
the freedom and right of personal
choice. She wrote that her family
was "willing to undergo years of
applications and waiting in the


naturalization process in order to
be able to claim our First
Amendment rights in the same
way that American children do so
freely and confidently."
7th Annual Freedom
Scholarship
A group of celebrity judges are
selected each year to choose the
winning essay. These have includ-
ed Florida Supreme Court
Justices, the mayor of Tallahassee,
an FSU Law School professor and
several Leon County court judges.
In recent years, former Governor
Jeb Bush expressed support for the
project and invited the winners
and their families to his office to
personally present the award.
This year's winner will receive
the $2,500 scholarship check
either as part of their graduation
ceremony or at a presentation cer-
emony no later than June 1, 2007.
The winner's name also is placed
on a trophy along with past recipi-

DECONSTRUCTING RECONSTRUCTION


On February 22,1868, members of the
House of Representatives took an
unprecedented step. They voted to
:mpeach the President

Andrew Johnson, who served as Vice-
President under Abraham Lincoln for
less than six weeks, offended members
of Congress before even taking office.
According to Michigan Senator
Zachariah Chandler, during Lincoln's
March 4,1865 inauguration Johnson was
'too drunk to perform his duties and dis-
graced himself and the Senate by mak-
ing a drunken foolish speech."

Johnson became President when
Lincoln was assassinated on April 15,
,1865 a week after the Civil War ended.
The former senator and governor of
Tennessee, a slavery supporter and for-


mer slave owner, assumed responsibility for rebuilding
a nation in which slavery was illegal.

Congressional leaders, who initially feared that
Johnson might fail to enforce anti-slavery laws, were
reassured when he committed himself to carrying out
Lincoln's policies, and retained all the members of
Lincoln cabinet. By early fall however, the new
President had surrounded himself with advisers
whose views were similar to his own He also quarreled
with his Cabinet over the question of black suffrage.

Over the next two years, Johnson's conflicts with
Congress escalated when he vetoed the
Reconstruction Act. the Civil Riglts Act, and a bill
expanding the power of the Freeman's Bureau (estab-
lished on March 3,1865 fo promote the interests of
former slaves). Johnson also expressed his opinion of
Reconstruction to the governor of Missouri,Thomas
Fletcher, when he said:"This is a country for white
men, and by God, as long as I am President, it shall be
a government for white men."

As the tensions between Congress
and the President increased, rumors
., .. began circulating that Johnson had
Seen part ot the plot to assassinate
-- --: Lincoln. Although there was no
I'i foundation for them, they height-
ened the distrust between the
Executive and legislature. Finally, in
direct defiance of Congress.
Johnson bred his Secretary of War
Henry Stanton, on February 21.
1868 Ti's violated the Tenure of
; Office Act that forbade the


President from firing
Cabinet members
without Senate
approval.


Johnson's action was '
akin to pouring gaso-
line on smoldering
embers, Three days
later, Congress voted
to impeach the
President. His trial
began on March 30, PrE~iderle Andrew lohnoin Thuigh
1868 and lasted until theb ibrul Congre s.
May 26, Accused of
three offenses, the Senate acquitted Johnson of
the most serious charge on May 16,1868.

No one questioned that the President had violated
the Tenure of Office Act, So why was he acquitted?

Andrew Johnson's secret weapon was Benjamin
Wade, the Speaker of the House. Wade was
among the most radical members of Congress.
According to James Garfield, who became
President in 1880, Wade was a "man of violent
passions, extreme opinions and narrow views
who was surrounded by the worst and most vio-
lent elements in the Republican Party' Enough
Senators felt that allowing Johnson to finish his
term was the lesser of two evils. The final vote
count denied the impeachment forces the neces-
sary two-thirds majority, by a single vote.
