'Cold Case'


New information, promising

clues in Chattahoochee dea


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
Gadsden County Sheriff Morris Young
is optimistic that new information and
recent promising clues will lead to the
identity of the person who murdered
Deborah Copeland of Chattahoochee in
January of 1986.
Copeland's case was one of 16' cold


cases that Young has re-opened since he
was elected in 2004. The case was
assigned to the cold-case squad, a group of
retired crime investigators with more than
100 years experience between them.
But more information is needed,
according to Young.
"The squad is working on all of the
information they have collected. We're
asking anyone with information on this


case call cold case Inv. John Franklin or
cold case Inv. James Kenon," Young said.
Franklin can be reached at 850-545-4427
and Kenon can be reached at 850-933-
1226. Or call CRIMESTOPPERS at 850-
574-TIPS (8477) or the toll free number 1-
888-876-8477.
Copeland, a 26-year-old black woman,
was last seen alive on January 24..Family
members reported her missing on January
27 and her body was found on January 29.
She has been run down with her own car,
a blue 1980 Pontiac Phoenix. Sher body
was found about a mile from' her Bonnie
Hill Community home.

by LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor
Gadsden County officials rolled out the red carpet last
week f6r U.S. Department of Agriculture rural development
program coordinators.
It seemed only fitting, seeing as how the agency recently
named Gadsden County "Rural Comimunity of the Year."
"The residents and leaders of Gadsden County are to be
commended for their continuing efforts in building a viable
sustainable community," said Chuck Clemons, Sr., state
director of the USDA Rural Development program. "People
like those in Gadsden County working together on behalf of
their community are what make the future of rural America
bright."
The Feb. 22 celebration marking the designation was, at
the North Florida Regional Education Center in Quincy,
and included guests representing U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson,

U.S. Sen. Mel Martinez, U.S. Congressman Allen Boyd,
State Sen. Al Lawson Jr., and state reps. Marti Coley and
Loranne Ausely. Rep. Curtis.Richardson was a speaker at
the two-hour event.
Gadsden County Commission Chairwoman Brenda Holt
emceed the proceedings.
"This ceremony proves that when you open the flower,
the bee will come .... and the honey is sweet," she said. "We
stepped out, and we prayed. We prayed first and we filled
out the paperwork second."
Gadsden County was chosen as Rural Community of the
Year for its "diligent and successful initiatives in
sustainable community and economic development,"
according to a USDA press release. "Gadsden'County has
labored to improve the quality of life of its citizens through
significant progress and development in water and sewer
infrastructure, housing and commitment to recreation,
business and economic development. Sustainability is a

Cocaine seized
in Gadsden stop
By ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
Two Palm Beach County men,
Leonel Maldonado Bernitz, 26,
and Paul Gamez, 36, were
arrested on Wednesday morning


just off Interstate '10 near
Greensboro. Deputies from the
Gadsden County Sheriff's Office
seized two kilos of cocaine, about
2.2 pounds, from beneath the
back seat of a rented SUV.
The men had made the trip to
Gadsden County many times in
the past and were comfortable,
according to Lt. Jim Corder of
the GCSO. The arrest was part of
a multi-agency, three-month


investigation by the GCSO and
the West Palm Beach Office of
the Florida Department of Law
Enforcement.
Corder said undercover agents
met with Benitez and Gamez to
make the arrangements and the
finalize plans for the sale in
Gadsden County.
"They knew exactly where they
were going. We set up a (traffic)
checkpoint and when they exited


the Interstate, we arrested them
without incident," Corder said.
Both men are in the Gadsden
County Jail without bond and
charged with drug trafficking.
They are considered a flight risk
since neither has connections to
the county. Both men are from
Mexico and are believed to be
members of a large drug

What does practicing two
hours per day, four days a week
get you?
Trophies in 12 of 13 cate-
gories at a regional drill compe-
tition, if you're a member of the
East Gadsden High School
Junior Reserve Officer Training
Corps drill team.
"We dominated," said Master
Sgt. Jerome Kerrison, who is in
charge of the team's regulation
drill and male color guard.
"We're going to state."'
Sgt. 1st Class Michael
Williams leads the female color
guard and exhibition drill for
EGHS.
There are 150 students in
East Gadsden's JROTC; 30 trav-
eled to Chipley High School last
weekend to compete on the
regional level. They won nine
first-place trophies and three
second-place trophies. They will
now advance to the State Army
Drill and Color Guard competi-
tion in Lakeland March 10 at
George Jenkins High School.
"We go every year," Kerrison
said. "We have won first place at
state for three consecutive years,
and we plan to win a fourth."
Before winning at the region-
al level, the team competed at
the Florida A&M University
Drill Meet Jan. 20 and tookTfirst-
place overall for the fourth con-
secutive year. Collaboratively,
the team brought home eight
trophies: four first-places in the
female armed squad regulation,
commanded by Cadet 2nd Lt.
Shaunterrick Dukes; male
armed squad regulation, com-
manded by Capt. Brian Clary;
and male armed platoon regula-
tion, commanded by Cadet Lt.
Col. Laesha Baker. First-year
Cadet Corp. DeShanta Wade
placed eighth out of 75 cadets in
the Knock-Out competition, and
senior Capt. Brittney Smith has
won first place at the regional
competition four years in a row.
Eleven schools compete in the
meet.
"Overall, we have been fortu-
nate or blessed however you
want to say it," he said. "I would
say at drilling, we're probably
one of the best in the state."

the meet.
Kerrison says there are sever-
al reasons the team has been so
successful at competitions, com-
peting against schools two and
three times the size of East
Gadsden as well as against mili-
tary academies.
"When students drill, you
have to make sure they under-
stand how to execute to the best
of their abilities," he said. "And
you've got to have students who
listen to you."
Kerrison retired from the
Army in 1997 and started teach-
ing JROTC in Fort Myers. A
year later, he led the Shanks
High School JROTC program,
and moved to the JROTC pro-
gram at East Gadsden once the
school was built.
He's also been leading a drill
team at George W. Munroe
Elementary School since 2000,
and fourth- and fifth-graders
often participate in the same
parades high school JROTC
members do.
Kerrison said the program
offers students a variety of
options and is not necessarily a
path to a military career.
"We're not recruiting for the
military," he said. "Our main
thing is that we're an after-
school program. The drill is
teaching attention to detail,
teamwork and self-pride.
Everything we do is to make
students better citizens."
Sophomore Tiffanie
Mansfield, a Cadet 2nd Lt.,
started participating in JROTC
when she was a freshman.
"It seemed like fun," she
said. "It's just a good experience
and a way to learn new things.
You learn not to be messy all the
time, you learn to be neat. And
you learn how to control your-
self better."
Here's how the team did at
the Area 11 Regional Meet last
weekend:
First place trophies went to
Cadet 2nd Lt. Tonica McDonald
for male armed platoon regula-
tion; to Cadet Lt. Col. Iashe

Dezel St. residents feel like 'the forgotten


Water repairs make street's

situation worse, they say
by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

If you don't know exactly where you're going you could easily
miss Dezel Street, just off North Adams Street, in Quincy.
For the 13 homeowners and renters who live on the street, the
general feeling is that their street is one that everyone at City Hall
has either forgotten or dismissed.
It all started last August when Jeanette Clayton attempted to do
laundry. "There was no water." she said. Clayton called the city's
public works department and explained the situation.
"There was a leak on Adams Street, the mainline had been dam-
aged and we had no water. They came and repaired it, but when the
water came out this time it was black and smelly," she said.
To correct the problem, the water lines from the street to the indi-
vidual properties were replaced. That was good, but Dezel Street
was already plagued by potholes and the repairs only made it worse.
Ward Nelson said after the repairs were made the residents were
told the street would be repaired in a matter of weeks. "They said in
November that the street would be fixed by Christmas, but they did-
n't say which Christmas," he said.
Between the potholes, chunks of asphalt, and pavement the city
dug up to replace the water lines, Dezel Street, residents say, is
unsafe for walking or riding.
"We have to drive on the wrong side of the road to get out. If
another car is coming, you have to stop," Clayon said.
"The children can't ride their bicycles or play a game of foot-
ball," Nelson said. His nephews, 10-year-old Jarod Francis and 7-
year-old Alphonso Francis, both say they have fallen off their bicy-
cles trying to turn around.
"My car rattles from under the bottom now," said Deanna
Johnson.
Clayton said she has to go up the street and turn around to get her
elderly mother in the car. She said she is afraid for her to walk on
the side of the street.
Bill Bogan, city manager, admits the street is in "horrible condi-
tion." But, he said, he is working on a comprehensive street main-
tenance plan he will present to the city commission in less than a
month.
"I understand their frustration. We're working with it, we'll get
to it. If they will be a little more patient with us," Bogan said.
Clayton and Nelson said they have been told there is no money
for street repairs: Both' say they only want the city to fix what they
tore up. Clayton, who was reared on Dezel Street and spend most of
her life there, said the street has been neglected throughout the
years.
"Nothing," she said, "has been done on our street since 1962,
even the mailman complains."
Bogan said it will take a minimum of $17,000 to repair the street
properly. Right now the money is not in the'budget. He said he
would try to get the funds set aside in the 2008 budget.
Clayton said she hasibecofe' so upset tu\inm to get something
done about her sleet thit hie niow hates to talk about it. "ETeru\ tme
I talk about it n6\\, I'm nearly in tears," she said.


*' .:. .,.i
E,.Yii '-i~


Ward Nelson, who lives on Dezel Street, said he has called
City Hall so many times to complain about the street that he's
tired. He said city employees told him that the street would be
repaired by Christmas last year.

I had to chuckle when I read Alice DuPont's
Contemplations in the Feb. 22 Gadsden County Times.
Ms. DuPont seems' like a nice lady who cares about
her city. I had to wonder if these high utility bills
came as a surprise to Ms. DuPont since she has been a
resident of Quincy for some time It should not have
shocked you Ms. DuPont.
The city is trying to be run like a profit making
industry and that is NOT the purpose of government.
Government is to serve the people not make a profit off
of them, so why does Quincy try to make a profit off
the citizens ? The city keeps trying and keeps failing
Ms. DuPont and since this is not a free market in
Quincy but rather a city monopoly why don't they
make a profit ?
Simple, first of all they do not have the
management or administration expertise to make a
profit. When you can't keep your finances in order as
Ms. DuPont is trying do with her finances, you are in
trouble. The city is considering borrowing over a
million dollars to pay vendors over due bills BUT
don't have a way to pay it back. It took a genius to
think that one up !
NetQuincy is losing money each year so now
they have decided to go further in debt and start a tv
cable company. Another brilliant idea. Something
else that I have a big problem with is NetQuincy using
the Quincy Police Dept. to answer their technical
support calls after hours and, Ms. DuPont, they have a
lot of those. My service was down all day 2/18. This
is NOT a police department job or responsibility. We
won't even talk about the management of trash pickup

The administration must take the responsibility
of sound management and that might mean firing some
people like vendors, friends, relatives and those who
are dead weight regardless of their color, gender or
length of service. The taxpayers are paying the bill
for these mistakes in management.
Those who get fired can always go out to
Gadsden Correctional Facility and get a job, the
taxpayers are also funding that project of government
folly. The CCA ( Can't Count Anyway ) will hire
anybody as long as they are alive and I am not sure
some of them are breathing that work out there.
Ms. DuPont, you might ought to start checking
on that second job, we are all probably going to need
one unless we do like Quincy, just not pay our bills.
It worked for the hospital and Quincy might get a
million dollars because they aren't paying their bills !
I wonder if that would work for me and Ms. DuPont ?
So MS. DuPont, what can be done, it is simple,
get the city government out of private indus!.y and sell
the industries the city is making such a mess of to
private industry and then manage and collect the
revenue and pay the bills. Yes it can be done but
somebody might have to go or produce.

Havana council handles 'hot' issue


by LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor

During a workshop after Tuesday morn-
ing's regular Havana Town Council meet-
ing, council members weighed how to han-
dle burning within city limits and "Jake"
"brakes noise levels.
As it stands, Havana residents are not
required to obtain a permit if they burn items
in their yards.
It is, however, a violation of state statute
to burn household garbage, and some coun-
cil members say burning causes breathing
problems for residents with conditions like
asthma or emphysema, and elderly resi-
dents.
"I'm talking about the kind of burning,
where smoke totally envelopes the town,"
Council member Olive Collins said. "I just
don't understand burning trash we've got
mandatory trash pickup. People are paying
for it anyway."
Havana Police Chief Glynn Beach, who
worked for the City of Quincy before taking
his current position in Havana, said Quincy
prohibits'any type of burning in city limits.
The reasoning behind that, he said, is that
should a fire get out of control, it could
destroy structures relatively quickly.
"Sometimes fires are unattended, and we
are in the business of public safety," he said.
According' to a Florida Division of
Forestry brochure, burning authorization is
not required to burn yard waste as long as
the person burning meets required setbacks


and there are no local, city or county ordi-
nances in place that prohibit burning. Yard
waste is vegetative debris such as grass clip-
pings, brush, leaves, tree limbs, palm fronds
and other yard maintenance leavings.
The Division of Forestry requires such
fires to be lit after 9 a.m. and extinguished
an hour before sunset; they are allowed "as
long as smoke is not a hazard or a nuisance."
Piles of yard debris greater than 8 feet in
diameter do require authorization from the
Division of Forestry, and those doing the
burning are required to have a way to sup-
press the fire should it get out of hand.
Division of Forestry setbacks are 25 feet
from forests; 50 feet from a public road; 25
feet from the burner'shouse and 150 feet
from other occupied buildings.
Havana Council members decided during
the workshop to avoid imposing a permit
requirement for burning for now and to con-
tact people who are burning in their yards on
a case-by-case basis.
Next on the workshop' agenda? "Jake"
brakes, which are special brakes used-by
truckers to save the trucks' regular brakes
from deterioration. Jake brakes work by
interrupting fuel flow to a truck's engine.
The problem with that, for some Havana
residents, is that in the process the resulting
burst of energy that exits through the truck's
exhaust pipes makes a loud noise.
If a truck's muffler has a hole in it or is
not intact, the noise is even louder, which
captures the attention not only of residents
and local police, but state Department of


Bill Law, Tallahassee Community College president, (left) talked with Wilson Hinson
"Coffee with Bill" Tuesday morning. (Photo by Alice DuPont)


Transportation enforcement officers.
"When engaged, and the muffler is
burned out, you can hear it for blocks,"
Beach said. "You'll see DOT stopping those
trucks that's what they're doing, checking
that as well as logbooks and other items."
The city does have a noise ordinance; to
measure the level of noise made by Jake
brakes, it would need to buy meters, which
range in price from $250-$.1,400.
"New trucks all come equipped with
(Jake brakes)," Beach said. "It's pretty
prevalent."
Beach said tweaking the existing noise
ordinance and buying one or more noise
level meters would allow police officers to
curb the problem.
During the regular Town Council meet-
ing, council members:
Approved appointing Mayor T.J. Davis
and Councilman David Norman to the
Municipal Firemen Trust Fund Board of
Trustees.
Approved a Florida Department of
Transportation Work Zone Traffic Control
Agreement.

Quincy looks for ways to cut utility costs


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

Utility bills were front and center dur-.
ing Tuesday night's regular meeting of
the Quincy City Comnmission.
"We have to find a way to lower util-
ity bills. It's taxing our citizens. We need
to find a way for alternative revenue.
That brings me to what's happening with
netquincy. It's losing money," said
Commissioner Keith Dowdell.
Mayor Sherrie Taylor suggested that
the staff might want to look at what other
providers may be able to offer.
"The usage has decreased because
people are trying to save by cutting back,
but the bills are still going up. If we give
them (Progress Energy) our blessing
we're telling our citizens they can expect
the same old, same old." Taylor said.
She produced information that, she
said, would possibly cause Progress
Energy to return thousands of dollars to
citizens because it overcharged fuel
adjustment costs. "I would like to see
you follow-up on this and if there is to be
a refund, the City of Quincy should be at
the front of the line," Taylor told Jack
McLean, city attorney.
Bill Bogan, the city manager,
explained that there are a number of rea-
sons for the high bills. Just recently he


told commissioners that many customers
could cut their bills if they weatherized
their homes, installed central air and
heating, or purchased energy efficient
appliances.
Since many people cannot take such
steps, Bogan asked commissioners for
permission to look into securing funding
for low interest loans to help people who
make too much money to qualify for
poverty programs but don't make enough
to pay for costly repairs.
But Commissioner Derrick Elias
questioned the wisdom of seeking anoth-
er provider. He asked Bogan if the city is
behind in its payments to Progress
Energy.
"We're a little behind," Bogan
replied.
"What does that mean?" Elias asked.
Bogan said the city was a little more
than a month in areas and that the com-
pany is owed more than $100,000 by the
city.
"We can look for competition, but
when people see we aren't paying our
bills, they're not going to want to do
business with us," Elias said.
Commissioner Andy Gay called the
utility situation a riddle. "Everytime you
ask one question, that leads to another,"
he said.
Gay said he did homework himself


after Bogan said Quincy has some of the dirt road. This is the worse
lowest utility rates in the state. He com- City of Quincy. We went


pared the City of Gainesville and learned
that income is derived from franchise
fees and other fees that are paid by the
provider.

don't find
a way to
lower these utility bills, we're going to be
in trouble. We'll have to cut and it won't
be pretty," Dowdell said.
"We're living above our means.
We're not paying our bills, we're going
to have to cut costs. I'm happy to see the
other commissioners are on board with
me," he said. He added that too many
people in city hall are making high
salaries but they are unable to multi-task.
I hear a lot about too much on their
plates. I expect results," Elias said.
In other matters, commission-
ers voted to approve spending $17,000
for emergency repairs to Dezel Street.
"I was flat out embarrassed that we
have a street that looks like that. Those
people would be better off it they had a

Gretna voters may get to vote on four



year terms for commission members


by LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor

It's that time of year for sev-
eral municipalities around the
county elections loom for
Havana, Chattahoochee,
Midway and Gretna but Gretna
city officials would like to do
things a little differently this
year.
Because of that, they are ask-
ing residents for input on a pro-
posal to extend council mem-
bers' terms from one year to
four.
S"Commissioners want to put
this proposal on the ballot for
th~e'unicipal election in April,"
said City Manager Antonio
Jefferson.
"Every year, the commission
is faced with elections. But the
projects we have undertaken go
on for several years at a time.
Annual elections can cause a
redirection of priorities we feel


like this is one of the reasons
some of our projects haven't
moved forward."
Gretna has several projects
that have lingered and lan-
guished for more than 10 years.
The city has been under a
court-ordered injunction over
potable water and wastewater
utilities deficiencies the state
Department of Environmental
Protection identified. New water
and wastewater customer con-
nections were prohibited until
the city rectified the problems,
which it has worked aggressive-
ly toward doing in, tle past eight
months.
The city also has several
roads that need to be paved or
resurfaced and hasn't received a
good audit for several years in a
row, partially because the city's
fiscal information, including
accounts payable, accrued
salaries and compensated
absences payable; fixed assets,

Commissioner Eugene

"It is anticipated that the several

The city elected to hire KMR
Consulting to help navigate
,through some of those prob-
lems, but commissioners now
worry that any momentum
they've gained could be lost if
the commission's current make-
up changes.
"They could have decided to
just put this on the ballot, but the
mayor and commission were
concerned that citizens be able
to give some input," Jefferson
said.

challenge facing communities
in rural areas throughout Florida,
but Gadsden County has
responded by working toward
achieving economic opportunity
and quality of life for area
residents. In addition to financial
assistance provided by USDA
Rural Development, the county
has partnered with other federal
and state agencies to bring
improvements to the
community."
Time and time again, those who
spoke at last Thursday's
celebration cited teamwork and
relationship-building as keys to
success for Gadsden County -
those attributes and the
persistence and hard work of
County Grants Coordinator
Nancy Gee.
"This is a great and befitting
day for Gadsden County," Gee
said. "...We do a lot of work, but
we don't always take the time to
celebrate. When we come
together, we do good for
Gadsden County, for the state, for
the country, for the world, for the
universe."
Clemmons said the award
represented a positive overall
picture of Gadsden County.
"Some of the reasons why this
county was lifted to a level of
recognition is that you guys have
recognized that in order to
provide economic security,
certain hard decisions have to be
made," he said. "Words without
actions are just pipe dreams.
Leaders of this county had to
recognize they had to invest
taxpayer money in order to reap
rewards. There are several signs,
of a vibrant community: The
school system, Healthcaree, a
newspaper all dynamic and
.vibrant communities have a way
to disseminate information
without reaching over into a
metropolitan area. A Chamber of
Commerce is another sign of a
dynamic community."
Quincy Piggly Wiggly co-
owners Kevin McDaniel and Roy
Moore, who were given a rural
development grant to get their
shopping center off the ground,
said they wouldn't have :been
able to bring the grocery store
chain or the adjoining strip mall
to to\% n %\ without it.
,,"If we hadn't had the:grant, we
couldn't have.built the store,"
McDaniel said. "People said,
S.'Nobody will lease those
Buildings in Gadsden County, it
can't be done' I leased those
buildings within a month. Some
Sof the businesses have not moved
in yet, but they are paying rent.
We have employed 100 people.
SWe're looking at a Sonic, a
: Family Dollar or a Wendy's
going in there."
S County commissioners,
; :representatives from cities
-- throughout Gadsden County and
; their community leaders
":*- attended the Feb. 22 ceremony,
w -hich included a presentation by
the East Gadsden High School
S Chorus and hors d'oeuvres
served on the back patio.
Melissa Durham, legislative
assistant for state Sen. Al Lawson
Jr., said the legislator is pleased
S with the USDA award.
"To see his. hometown
S community recieve this award
greatly warms his heart,"
-Durham said. "Sen. Lawson is
committed to helping Gadsden
County achieve its economic 'and
development goals."
Rep. Curtis Richardson, who
once worked for the Gadsden
County school system as a
S psychologist, said he saw the
award as the culmination of years
of effort.
"I have been part of this
.community for over 20 years," he
said. "In the face of challenges,
leadership has always risen to the
top. We see today a community
that is striving for excellence.
This award today is a testament
to work that has been done over
years. There are still many
challenges yet to be met here in
Gadsden County .... On behalf of
our local delegation, we intend to
keep working for you to make
;sure all your goals are met."
:Long-time Gadsden County
commissioner Ed Dixon said, as
several other speakers did, that
S the award represented a
S cooperative effort to make


improvements to Gadsden
County. He also said the best is
yet to come.
"At the end of the day, it is
about relationships," he said.
"We can't keep young,
progressive, intelligent people
here they seek the lights, the
opportunities, the money, the life
that is changing. The
opportunities that await Gadsden
County are endless ... nobody
believed we could build a library
in Chattahoochee. Nobody will
believe what we're going to do
next."

gram and 20 new scholarships
have been awarded.

Quincy Parks and Recreation,
Workforce Plus, and community'
based groups.
*The English as a Second
Language has been expanded.

ty. This spring, through the Florida

for citizens.
,*As part of the TCC
"Achieving The Dream" initia-
tive, which encourages first gener-
ation students to pursue and com-
plete college, TCC, the schools,
and community leaders worked
with Public Agenda, a non-parti-
san, non-profit opinion research
organization to facilitate dialogue
to name priorities and develop
plans for the county.
But with all of the strides made
by TCC, Law said, there is still
more to be done. Especially hard
to address is getting people who
are not in the workforce into a job.
He promised to work with
employers.
"We've got a lot of work to do
to get a pipeline to get people to
the door. We need the population
from Gadsden County, not just
Leon County," Law said.
Larry Rishell of the Printing
House said he is worried about the
future worforce. "There is a dis-
connect. If they (employees) get
through the application process,
we can't get them to come to work
everyday," he said.
Other employers at the meet-
ing expressed the same senti-
ments.
"We're all on the same page,"
Law said about reliable employ-
ees, adding, "but there is no magic
bullet."

Copeland dropped her children
off at her sister's home on the night
of the 24th and asked her to watch
them. Another family member told
authorities that Copeland received a
telephone call around 11 p.m. but
did not know who called.
The family still. wants closure'to
what happened to their loved one.
Copeland's children, who were
little more than toddlers when she
was murdered, are'now adults with
children of their own.

Corder said the powder cocaine
was more than likely going to be
cooked down into crack and sold.
Crack is more popular than powder
in Gadsden and Leon counties,
according to Corder.
"The seizure will have a hugh
impact on the drug traffic here," he
said. The drugs would have been
distributed in Gadsden and Leon
counties. Corder estimated the
street value at about $60,000.
Last week's seizure brings the
total amount confiscated this year
to nearly 13 pounds. "We keep
knocking them off, but
unfortunately our county is small
and they believe they have less of a
chance of getting caught," Corder
said.

educational opportunities as well.
The board gave faith-based
partners Elizabeth Church of God
in Christ, pastored by Dietrich


Streeter, and Calvary Baptist
Church, pastored by Daryl
Roberts, plaques thanking them
for their contributions and
recognized State Farm Insurance
representatives for giving more
than $4,000 to the school district
to go toward school uniforms and
student incentives.
And board members recognized
Larry Clayton, owner of Havana
Health and Fitness, for his
contribution of scholarships to
Havana Elementary and Havana
Middle School-students and staff.
Clayton has given 24
scholarships, totaling around
$7,500 worth of club dues,
during the four years his fitness
club has been open.
Board members also took action
on an item requesting approval of
the acceptance of a $10,000 grant
from the state Department of
Education unanimously. The
grant will be used to establish an
"Einstein Academy" for gifted
students in the county, an after-
school program that will take
place at the Gadsden Elementary
Magnet School. Three schools
will participate: Stewart Street
Elementary, St. Johns
Elementary, and the Magnet
School.
In other business, board
members approved amending,
several School Board rules
governing school administration,
curriculum and instruction,
student assignment and human
resources.
The board also set several
workshops, one to discuss the
restructuring of educational
alternatives and dropout
prevention at Carter-Parramore
Academy.
Superintendent of Schools
Reginald James' recommended
the restructuring after looking at
data that showed the number of
expulsions has been on the rise
annually as well as the number of
disciplinary infractions.
Currently, Carter Parramore
houses four different programs:
one for students with special
needs in the area of discipline,
one that offers learning
alternatives, one on teenage
parenting and one on emotional
and mental well-being.
Those are supported by the on-

EGHS state bound


West Gadsden's Panthers were swimming in a sea of Sharks all night before
dropping the Region 1-2A finals 47-38 Saturday, ending the Panthers' chances
of joining county rivals East Gadsden at this week's state finals in Lakeland.


McGill's free throws send
Jaguars to Florida Finals;
face lakeland kathleen

by Larry Edwards
Down 24-13 at halftime, a lot of
East Gadsden Jaguar fans may have
thought the season was coming to an
end.
With a state tournament trip at
stake, East Gadsden head coach
Demetric Salters, got his Jaguar team
to slow down and play their game.
With that advice the Jaguars recov-
ered to take an e citing 44-42 win
.over, a. tough Milton Panther bunch
and on to state it is for East Gadsden.
"We were over stressing ourselves
and not taking our time in the first
half." Salters said. "I told them we
had to play our game."
Coming out with a stifling man-to-
man defense, and getting back to their
offensive game the Jaguars overcame
the 11 point deficit and tied it at 33 all
by the third quarter's end.
Leading the comeback was
Rashard McGill who scored 11 of his
game high 18 points in the quarter.
That combined with the defensive
play of Sam McLaurin who had 2
blocked shots in the stanza keyed the
game tieing spurt.
]Both teams played solid defense
in the fourth quarter and with 3:31 left
the Jaguars found themselves up 37-
35. A smothering defense led by East
Gadsden's Leonardo Deloney forced a
ten second back court count against
the Panthers. Adontay McLaurin hit a
runner following the turn over putting
the Jaguars up 39-35.

Milton scored on their next 2 pos-
sessions to make it 39 all at the 2:13
mark before an East Gadsden run gave
them a 42-39 lead with 32 seconds
left.
With 18 seconds left Milton's
Terrance Mitchell nailed a three-
pointer to tie the game.
East Gadsden wanted to hold for
the last shot but Williams fouled
McGill with 8 seconds to go and the
junior forward popped in two free
throws to end the scoring. Asked
about the pressure with the game on
the line, McGill said. "I felt it, but if
felt good to have a chance to win the
game." After McGill's free throws the
Panthers did have a final shot, but it


rimmed out.
]Salters said. "We're very fortunate
to win the game. We beat a tough,
well coached team." Salters added.
"This is great for East Gadsden, and
the whole county."
]S. McLaurin added 11 points to
McGill's 18 for East Gadsden.
Mitchell led Milton with 14 and
Florida signee Adam Allen hit 12.
]McLaurin had 13 rebounds,
McGill finished with 10.
East Gadsden carries a 27-3
record to Lakeland and will meet 26-3
Lakeland Kathleen in the semi-finals
at 7 pm Thursday in the Lakeland
Center.

Sharks bite Panthers in final


by Joe Ferolito
West Gadsden stayed in the water with
Port St. Joe most of Saturday's Region 1-
2A final. In the end the Panthers let the
Sharks swim away to a 47-38 win and earn
the right to go to the Florida Finals this week
in Lakeland.
Home standing Port St. Joe ran a stall
game most of the night. The strategy
worked well, especially in the games last
four minutes, when the Sharks out scored
the Panthers 11-2. That run broke a 36-all
tie and propelled St. Joe to their second
straight Region championship and third in
five years.
The main fins for the Sharks were
Apalachicola transfer Jordan McNair and
Rashard Rouse.
McNair who was the games top scorer hit
8 of his 14 points in the late run, all off lay-
ubs or put backs, that were keyed 'by
Rouse's ball handling.
St. Joe had used the stall game to build a

The Munroe tennis team
evened their record at 1-1 with
an early season victory over
Aucilla Christian on Thursday.
The Lady Cats, coached by
alumnus Carolyn Summerford,
won 6-1 winning all their sin-
gles matches and dropping one
doubles match 9-7. Number
one, sophomore Meg
Summerford, and number two,
younger sister, 7th grader Beth
Summerford, both dominated
by 8-2 scores. Freshman
Chelsea Watson, playing in the
3rd slot, went the distance
before finally taking a 9-7 win.
Sixth grader, Hillary Flournoy,
won handily 8-2 and finally
freshman, Georgia Davis, had
the last singles win at the num-
ber five slot winning 8-3.The
team travels to rival Maclay on
Tuesday, to NFC for a JV match
on Wednesday,. and hosts
Florida High on Friday.
The Munroe softball team
Picked up a forfeit from East
Gadsden on Thursday when
East Gadsden was forced to can-
cel out the rest of their season.
On Friday, the Lady Cats picked
'- ;up their 7th win of the season
and junior leftie, Malorie
-McKinnon, struck out 10 on
S-their way to a 10-4 district win
over Carrabelle. The Lady Cats
led early scoring three runs in
the first inning. They then
scored one in the second, three
in the fourth and then three
more in the 6th and 7th innings.
Eighth grader Kristin Allen led
the team at the plate with three
hits and three rbi's Julia Bates,
Spenser Morris, Kaitlyn Rentz,
and Malorie McKinnon each
gathered two hits apiece. The
team(7-2) played at Maclay on
Monday, hosted John Paul II in
a district game on Tuesday and
travels to Jefferson County on
Thursday.


10-6 first quarter margin. They would hold
the ball until the Panthers would come out
after it. Then they would run pick and roll
plays that worked most every time. Even if
they missed a shot it seemed McNair was
there to get the off side rebound and put it
back.
West Gadsden changed tactics in the
middle quarters using a full court press.
That along with the scoring of Ronnie
Jackson helped the Panthers get into a 32-32
tie at the third quarter's end.
Two jumpers by Jessie Winbush, off set
buckets by the Sharks Ramond Beard and
Rouse early in the fourth stanza and with
just over 5 minutes to go the game was knot-
ted at 36.
An unforced turn over by the Panthers
then gave St. Joe a possession and they held
the ball until West Gadsden made a move.
SRouse then scored off a dribble making it
38-36. The Panthers missed scoring on
their next 5 possessions and 3 baskets by


McNair, two on put backs, and a lay up and
a free throw by Rouse got the Sharks an 11
point lead. R. Jackson's jumper at the buzzer
was way too little, too late for the Panthers.
"We didn't play with a lot of intensity on
defense." West Gadsden coach Tony Davis
said. "And on offense we couldn't get things
going."

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 set you pre-approved,
tell you what it will cost and buy it for you.
We appreciate your supporting us. Come
by or call.

J I Have you ever looked into the sky anc dreamed of traveling into space? Well if you have,
then you have dreamed of becoming an astronaut! An astronaut is someone who travels
S intospace. The term 'astronaut' comes from two ancient Greek words: "astron", which
means star, and "nautes" which means sailor In the United States, astronauts train at NASA, or the
National Aeronautics and Space Administration. NASA is a government agency, and until recently, in this
country, only NASA astronauts had achieved space travel In 2004, the first privately funded spacecraft,
called SpaceShipOne, reached an altitude that was considered space travel. Though the flight of
SpaceShipOne was considered space travel, it was unlike the missions to space conducted by NASA.
Nonetheless, this landmark event marked a new chapter in space travel.
On April 12, 1961 the first astronaut entered space. This was a man by the name of Yuri Gagarin, from
Russian. In 1963, the first woman to enter space was Valentina Tereshkova, who was also from Russia.
The first American to enter space was Alan Shepard on May 5, 1961, less than one month after Gagarin
The first American woman to enter space was astronaut Sally Ride, on June 18, 1983. The first man to
walk on the moon was American astronaut Neil Armstrong on July 20, 1969:Accompanied by astronauts'
Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins on the Apollo 11 mission to the moon, one of the most historic quotes of
all time was said by Armstrong; "One small step forman, one grant leap for mankind"'

Jimmy Harris

becomes 6th FRM

headmaster
The six-month search process ended on .
February 15, when the Board approved
Jimmy Harris '78 as the sixth Headmaster _'
since Munroe's 1970 opening. ..-. "
Harris has been working in Bainbridge for'
16 years as a teacher, athletic director, coach,
'and assistant principal. He holds Bachelor's s.n
and Master's degrees from F.S.U. and is cur- : ..
rently adding an Education Specialist in : .
Curriculum and Instruction Masters to his
credentials.
Jimmy's two children, Will and Emily,
attend R.FM., and he and Stephanie are
actively involved as parents.
He describes his love of education as "a
thirst for understanding of how students learn
and grow." Jimmy describes himself as a
"company man; one who is loyal and will be
steadfast in his job as a principal." He says
that the reason he sought a change is because
Munroe is "a place to make you smile."
Harris has long-term goals, which include
growth of the student body and expansion of
programs offered to students.
Harris commented on being confirmed, "I
am honored to return to a place, which made
such a great difference in my life, with the
opportunity to give back to those who sit
where I once sat."

Historical Commission
This short biography of William Penn traces
his influence upon Pennsylvania from the
time he acquired his charter in 1681, until
the Revolutionary War. It also shows how his
policies encouraged the emigration of
diverse groups to Pennsylvania, and how
those groups helped shape the new society.

prisoner locked in the Tower of London was

wealthy landowner and admiral in the British

Society of Friends, or Quakers, and after
publishing a book criticizing the Church of
England, he was declared a danger to the
state. His name was William Penn, and fifteen

William used his friendship with the Duke of
