County discusses

possible impact

of tax change

by ALICEDU PONT
Times Editor
The Board of County Commissioners
meeting room was nearly packed Monday
night with citizens wanting to know how the
proposed property tax reform would affect
them..
They didn't have to wait long before Davin
Suggs, budget director, said the county could
lose up to $2 million dollars. in revenue and
that the loss would result in cuts in the budget.
Gov. Charlie Crist's proposals would:
l)Double the homestead exemption from
$25,000 to $50,000. The homestead exemption
would then be adjusted each year according to
inflation rates moving forward.
.2)Make "Save Our Homes" existing
constitutional portable statewide to allow
current homeowners to transport their current
and future property tax rates with them
whenever and wherever they move within the
State.
3)Cap annual property taxes on businesses
and renters (non-homestead property) by
limiting the growth in assessed evaluations'of
-non-homestead properties annually to the
lesser of three percent or current rate of
inflation.
4) Provide an exemption for businesses from
tangible personal property taxes up to $25,000.
On the other hand, the House of
Representatives offers the following statutory
measures:
1)Requires local governments to "re-set"
property tax rates equal to 2001 plus
adjustments each year through fiscal year 2008
for the rolled-back rate plus CPI.
2)Exempts all schools and bonded
indebtedness.
3)Requires a supermajority vote of local
governments to exceed stattitory cap of
revenue.
4)Imposes withholding penalty of state
shared revenue if local government does not

Bear killed on Highway

12 Wednesday morning

300-400 pound creature struck by vehicle


by LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor
A 300-400 pound black bear was hit and
killed on Highway 12 in Greensboro early
Wednesday morning.
Mark Crisfield, a regional nuisance
wildlife biologist based in the Florida Fish
and Wildilfe Conservation Commission's
Northwest Region Office, said he got a
report at 7 a.m. that a large black bear had
been hit in Greensboro. He sent a bear
response agent a private contractor who
works in Franklin, South Gulf, South
Liberty and South Wakulla counties


primarily to pick up the carcass.
"Generally, we don't get very many bear
hits in Gadsden County," Crisfield said.
"But the number is increasing every year."
Charles Edwards, who lives in Greensboro
near where the bear was hit, said he'd seen
it cross the road several times before.
Bystanders said a semi-truck hit the bear
near the Gadsden/Liberty County line but
did not stop.
"The bear hadn't caused any trouble -
some hunters had trouble with the bear
eating their corn," Edwards.said. "He's been

McLeroy



found



guilty of



murder

by ALICE DU POINT
Times Editor:
A Gadsden County jury took three hours to find Glenn
McLeroy of Chattahoochee guilty of second degree
attempted murder. He was charged with attempted first
degree murder following the shooting of Christopher
Gilcrease last February.
McLeroy admitted that he chased Gilcrease from a
parking lot at Florida State Hospital after Gilcrease
taunted him. "He said he was going to take my girl and
that I would never see my child, the love of my life,
again," he said.
McLeroy said he was angry and when Gilcrease crossed
over a bridge he passed him and cut him off. Then,
according to McLeroy, he struggled with Gilcrease who
was sitting inside his vehicle and the gun (which
belonged to Gilcrease) went off.
"I felt something sticky and warm but I didn't know he
was shot. All I heard was ringing in my ears," he said.
When Gilcrease left the scene on the bridge he drove to
the home of his in-laws. McLeroy followed him there,'
and spotted Gilcrease knocking on the door. The two
fought in the yard and Gilcrease escaped again attempting
to hide under the trailer, McLeroy followed him there and
began fighting him again.
McLeroy said the events began to unravel when
Gilcrease's wife called him and informed him that his:
girlfriend, Sandra Campbell, was having an affair with her'
husband.
.Before returning the verdict the jury asked to hear the
interview McLeroy had with Gadsden County deputies
the night of the incident. McLeroy denied having fought
with Gilcrease at all. He said he just simply decided to
throw the gun into the Chattahoochee River and that he
was not saying to destroy evidence. His sentencing is set
for March 22 at 2 p.m.

Adams works five days a
week, driving herself to and
from her job.
She has a heavy social
schedule, and woe be it to the
person who interferes with her
beauty parlor appointments.
At 92, she's still loving life.
She is the first woman to be
featured in the Gadsden
County Times' monthlong
"Women's History Month"


series, and she has made a
remarkable contribution to
Gadsden County past and
present.
Monday night, she was
honored for her 62 years of
active service in the Order of
the Eastern Star, an adoptive
rite of Freemasonry based on
Biblical teachings and
objectives that are charitable
and benevolent.
"I think you. have been a
mentor and friend to many of
us," said Lucy Whitehead.
The event was planned as a


surprise, and Adams was
awestruck.
"I am just overwhelmed. I
don't know what to say," she
said. "It's a pleasure to see all
of you I love you."
Family, including her four
children, and friends gathered
to give tribute to her generous
nature and independent spirit.
"How often do we get the
pleasure of surprising you?"
said Whitehead. ."Because you

Battle to run for commission


Long time community activist
Anrie Battle has joined the race for
the City Commissioner, District 2.
"I have been fighting for the
citizens of Quincy and Gadsden
County for over forty years," she
said. As the youngest child of the
late Rev. Louis and Lovie Mims,
her roots run deep in this
community. She is married to
Coach Aaron Battle and has two
children Felecia and Eddie.
Arrie, never one to shy away
from complicated issues
concerning her community, has
served on the County's Planning
and Zoning Board, helping to
guide good growth to Gadsden
County for almost 10 -years. In
2004, she was one of the first
'members drafted by the Board of
County Commissioners to serve on
the Board of Directors for the
Senior Citizen's Center.


She says her true joy comes from
her service as the
Founder/Coordinator of the
MotherCare Network. This
program recruits elderly mothers
from across Gadsden County's
religious
communities
to organize
and help
young parents
to become
better mothers
and fathers.
This program
also, refers
these young Battle
parents to
other
providers for free health services.

Gay seeks re-election for District 4


Andy Gay is announcing his
candidacy for re-election for the
Quincy City Commission District
4 in the upcoming April election.
Gay has been involved in many
community activities including
three years Quincy City
Commissioner, Andy has been
voted Mayor Pro Tem two
consecutive years by the
Conimission, Deacon at Thomas
Memorial Baptist Chruch, Board
of Directors of Gadsden Lears,
Board of Directors' Gadsden
Tourist Development Council,
Alumni Board Tallahassee
Community College, 100 Friends
of W. A. Woodham scholarship
fund, Named Distinguished
Alumni Tallahassee Community
College.
In his first three year term Gay
has supported the following issues:
Forensic Audit which exposed the
mismanagement of taxpayer
dollars, irihproper transfers between
bond accounts, unethical
accounting practices, and total lack
of financial control over the
finances of the city; Supported
housing rehabilitation initiative;
Supported increased Fire and


Police protection; Supported Park
revitalization; Fought and voted.
against irresponsible growth in the
city; Worked with commissioners
for a balanced budget; Voted
against raises in ad valorem taxes
(property tax); Supported Quincy
Fest Blues and BBQ;
Accountability of all city
employees; Supported downtown
revitalization.
I'm grateful
for the honor
and privilege
of
representing
this very
special district
the last three
years.
However, my Gay
work is not
done. I want to bring back a
financially strong city government
to Quincy. The taxpayers of the
city of Quincy too often see their
tax dollars being used for
questionable purposes, and wish
for greater fiscal responsibility in
government. They see high utility
bills, without the resources to pay
them. They see a government that


through the years has buried itself
in restricted, bond debt. I too see
these things and I, too wish to
change them by working to bring
these problems to light and find
solutions instead of ignoring them.
Sometimes it is not the popular
thing or politically correct thing to
do but you deserve to know. Andy
graduated from high school in
1980 and received his AA degree
from Tallahassee Community
College and a BS degree in
Movement Science Edcation from
Florida State University. He is a 17
year veteran educator in the
Gadsden County School System
serving in administration and as
the Athletic Director at East
Gadsden High School.
Married for 20 years to Kim,
they have three children Andrew,
June Elizabeth, and Alex. Andy is
a third generation Quincy native
and is a lifelong resident of District
4.
"These are exciting and
challenging times for the City of
Quincy and there are vitally
important issues to address the
next few years. I look forward to
the challenge."


Hannigon to run for commissioner


I pray that when these words
reach you, they .find you in a place
better than where you were three
years ago. I hope that your
neighborhoods are safer, your
homes are suitable to live in, your
youth are progressing, your children
have safer places to play, your
elderly are in need of nothing and
you are proud to call District 2
YOUR HOME.
Almost two years ago I moved to
the District 2 community (along
with my young child) in search of a
quiet, comfortable and safe place to
call home. I thought I had found
each of these in the home I currently
live in. However, I soon realized
that our home and the community
we live in would eventually be the
motivation I needed to run for
Quincy City Commissioner. You
see, over the past two years, I have
lived in a cement block house on
the "south side" of town where our
summers were made more
comfortable by the window A/C
unit in the home and our winters we
more bearable thanks to the gas
furnace that heated the home (until
those unfortunate nights when the
pilot light went out and this single
mom had the task of trying to
"figure out" how to get it lit I can
laugh about it now, but it certainly
was not funny then). We don't have
many of the modem amenities you
find in most homes nowadays, but
my son and I have a place to call
home and for the most part, it is a
comfortable place to live. In
addition, while the home I left to
come to District 2 offered many
conveniences that I do not have
now, I've had to stop and. count my
blessings because not far from my
home, there are houses that don't
even have these simple amenities.
These houses, none-the-less, are a
"home" to my neighbors, both
young and old alike.
In the almost two years that I have
lived in District 2, my home has
been broken into three times, in
addition to one attempted break-in.
In the midst of these break-ins, the
burglars took the last things I would
imagine. You see, the VCR, DVD,
computer, jewelry and all the other
things I thought were valuable were
still there in the home.
However, what was gone were the
Hot Pockets and popsicles from the
freezer, the Hi-C fruit drinks from
the refrigerator, the toilet paper, the
bath soap, the pennies in my son's
piggy bank, even the candy in the
candy jar. As you read this, you may
be as surprsied as I was at first, you
may even shake your head in
disbelief like I did. I remember
coming home from church one
Wednesday night and finding the
remains of the first break-in; what
an uncomfortable feeling. I could
not believe that someone broke into
our house and stole our food. Each
time that it happened after that I
realized more and more that there
was more to this than someone
breaking into my home, there was a
bigger picture that needed to be


looked at and there needed to be a
greater focus. Residents of District
2, I share all of this tq:make a point
to each one of
,Nou; we have
a problem and
it's not just in
our district.
We can not
continue to
Slie in our
own little
world and not
Hannigon concern
ourselves with
the current state of our communities
and our neighbors. As I drive
through District 2, it is somewhat
disheartening to see the current (but
temporary) condition of our
community: the abandoned houses
and businesses, the dilapidated
homes that our neighbors are forced
to live in becuase they can't help
themselves and the ones they turn to
for help turn them away, the youth
wondering the streets day and night
unattended, the sidewalks and yards
that are littered with trash, shopping
carts and other debris, the
dilapidated and inoperable parks.
While these things concern me, they
are also a motivation for me
because I believe where there is a
great need, there is an even greater
potential. I don't just see where we
are today, but I also see where we
can go from here.
Residents of District 2, I have a
heart for this community. While it
took having my home broken into
several times and me living in fear
of "what next," I am grateful for
what it has birth in me. The things I
have experienced here have taught
me firsthand that everyone in our
district does not have a place to call
home, everyone does not have food
to eat and everyone does not go
home everyday to the simple
amenities that most of us enjoy on a
day to day basis. I have also learned
that everyone is not content with the
state that our community is
currently in. I, like most of you,
want to se a change take place in
District 2. As I look at the map that
sits in the Supervisor of Elections
Office, I see the smallest district in
the City of Quincy, but I also see
what may be the poorest district in
the City of Quincy. But, do you
know what else I see? I see a district
that sits at the center of a City that is
going places and we will play a vital
role and the progress of this city.
Just as the heart is the life source for
each of our bodies, just as the
nucleus is the life source for every
cell in our body, just as the body can
not function without the brain, so will
District 2 become in the City of
Quincy. WE WILL THRIVE and
our community will become an
example for everyone else in this
city, in this county and in this state.
As you read these words, I hope
that you experience conviction if
you have not lived your life as your
brother's keeper, I hope that you
experience revelation to see what
you can personally do to help your


community thrive and f hope you
experience inspiration knowing that
where we are today is not where we
have to be tomorrow. I have been
given a vision for District and I
need you to make it a reality. Vote
for me, Stacey Hannigon, on April
24, 2007 because, "There Is Work
To Do in District 2".

The Board of Directors of
Gadsden Hospital, Inc. put on
hold the selection of a vendor to
operate the hospital Monday
afternoon. That is, until it is
determined whether the county
will be granted critical access
Status.
Paul Sexton, attorney for the
county, said the issue should be
,resolved one way or the other in
;the next six months.

Care, Inc. (TMHC) answered
some final questions.
SHere are the differences in the
'three presentations:

rehabilitation hospital and
indicated that critical access is
.not required, and TMHC
indicated that critical access is

Comply.
Constitutional Measures:
1)Eliminates property taxes in
all homestead property.
2)Replaces loss revenue with
2.5 percent increase in state sales
tax.
3)Limits growth in the assess on
non-homestead properties to
growth (rolled-back rate) plus
CPI.
4)Requires a unanimous vote of
local government to surpass cap
on property taxes on non-
homestead property.
5)Places limits of state
revenues.
Suggs explained that the
county's ad valorem taxes
($12,405,365) a little more than
$4 million dollars actually
trickles down to the Board of
County' Commissioners to be
dispersed among all the
constutitional officers.
"Gadsden County may have to
lose services, the citizens will
decide," Suggs said. He gave a
scenario where citizens will have
to decide between parks and
libraries or whether or not they
will have the best medical care.
"It could mean whether or not
EMT, who can only provide basic
care, or a paramedic, who can
administer drugs, etc., is on board
an ambulance when one is
called," he said, adding "these
cuts could mean. the difference
between EMS or a deputy
showing up."
He said citizens may have to
decide between veterans services
and senior citizens or all non-
profits and the Office of
Management and Budget or any
number of variations.
He defended the county
commissioners hiring of
consultants and other employees

final decisions and not the public.
"The public is under the
impression that the Board of
County Commissioners makes
the decisions and then goes back


and changes them for their
benefit. Until the citizens start
believing in you, we're not doing
anything. It's time for you guys to
stop spending our money and
wasting it away," Hudgins said.
Margaret Feaver thanked the
Board for getting professionals
to present accurate data. Lee
Garner said citizens who live in
municipalities are being taxed
double by the county when the
county charges the cities for
services.
Citizens will have another
opportunity to voice their
opinions again on Tuesday,
March 13, at 6 p.m. in the
County Commissioner meeting
room.

BEAR from Page 1


around a long time years, I
think."
The sight of a black bear by the
side of the road drew a large
crowd, Edwards said. He was one
of a group of around five men
who helped load the bear on the
FWC contractor's truck.
He feels fairly certain it was a
400-pound animal.
"I helped load him, and I'm
thinking he was 400 pounds or
better," Edwards said. "He was a
big one."
Debris from the vehicle that.hit
the animal littered the ground
around it.
Traci Sansom was headed to
work in Quincy from her home in
Bristol when she saw the crowd
gathered around the bear. She
stopped ard took a few pictures,
then headed on into Quincy.
She saw a semi-truck that may
have been a liquid hauler or a
fertilizer. truck parked on
Highway 12 at the eastbound
Interstate 10 exit ramp. She
noticed after passing it and
glancing in her rearview mirror
that part of its bumper was gone,
the passenger side was "knocked
off," and the grill was dented.
"But that could have been
caused by anything," she said.
Crisfield said this is the fourth
bear hit and killed in Gadsden


County since FWC began
tracking bear hits in 1995. In
November, 1995, a 4-year-old
female bear was hit on County
Road 268 west of Gretna; in
December, 2001 a 2-year-old
male bear was killed at Highway
65 and Road 114; and in May,
2003 a 2-year-old male bear was
hit on Interstate 10 in the'
Greensboro area.
There have been more bear
sightings along Highway 20,
which runs adjacent to the
Apalachicola Forest, in recent
years. The Apalachicola National
Forest is the. site of one of six
core bear populations in the state,
Crisfield said.
Crisfield said bears will start
moving around more and more as
spring approaches.
"They are emerging from their
dens, they're hungry, and mating
season is right around the
comer,", he said.
The bear killed Wednesday will
be taken to a bear burial site
maintained by FWC in an
undisclosed location. Biologists
will do a rudimentary exam,
which may include measuring its
chest girth, the length of its paws,
checking it for ticks and
removing a tooth to determine its
age.

Courtroom no place for kids


Shisust n


by Leslie Roberts,
News Editor


Spring is here ... almost


I think there ought to be a law that
prohibits children from coming to court
unless they are a witness, a defendant, or
with a class and escorted by teachers and
chaperones.
One of the beats, or areas I routinely
write about, is the courts.
I don't know what the point is, but I see
people all too often, bringing children to
court. I suppose if it were traffic court, it
wouldn't bother me so much, but what
could an adult be thinking of when they
bring children to criminal court? Gee, let's
take little Johnny to court with us today so
he can hear and see just what goes on.
If the trial is so important that you can't
miss a word,, hire a sitter. Leave the kid
home with grandma or an aunt or uncle.
On occasion, when the trial involves
child molestation, the judge has asked the
individual to take the child out of the
courtroom: No. one should have tell a
parent or guardian that this is an
inappropriate setting for a child.
They bring the little ones to court from


Itwas 1969.
I was a senior in college when David Mark
"volunteered" for the army. I understood very
well except for the grace of God, and an extra
high lottery number, it would have been me
instead of him.
I was wrestling with Latin, English Literature
and a Russian History professor who thought
the Soviet Union had a better system than we
did. My little brother was getting his head
shaved in Fort Campbell and hopping out of
bed at four am. for early morning "fun" runs.
He got in line and climbed up those extra high
towers in Columbus, Georgia, and jumped to
the ground. He flung himself out of perfectly
good running airplanes at night over Fort
Bragg, North Carolina. He was one of those
three out of a hundred they hand a Green Beret
to.
I didn't bore him much with college details.
He didn't offer up much on what Uncle Sam
was doing in his life.We had a couple of
people, really not many, at our school that
protested the war. We thought they were idiots.
I didn't know what was going on. I couldn't
really understand the scope of it. I couldn't
pronounce half of the places that we were
fighting at, or protecting, or trying to get to.
And, like I said, I was awful busy working on
graduating. College was hard! 'Course, come to
think of it now, it wasn't nothing like jumping
out of an airplane at night!
The Chattanooga Times covered one of our
campus anti-war rallies. They weren't but three
or four there at the most. And maybe a couple
of freshmen stopped to gawk.It was front page
stuff the next day. Someone had carefully taken
the pictures from an angle that looked like
more people were involved than were actually
there. John Stewart said that he thought one
picture was from the crowd at the baseball
game. And they interviewed each one of the
three protesters six different times.
We all begin to wonder if the Chattanooga
Times saw the same meager protest that we
did ....
What, unfortunately, didn't cross my mind
was to hold a pro-war, let's support our guys,
we-don't-have-to-understand-every-dot-and-
tittle-if-we've-got-troops-over-there, let's place
a higher premium on winning this thing,
come'on America, rally! I will go to my grave
regretting that I didn't do more. At the very
least, I could have gotten Billy Cunningham,
John Popham and Randy Love and we could
have beat the ever loving stuffings out of them
three long haired dudes that did protest! I think
one of them might have been my Russian
History professor.....
Don't you reckon the bullets and bombs and
booby traps and shrapnel was just as real in
Vietnam as it was in the Argonne Forest in
1918 or at Utah Beach in 1944? I hear a lot of
talk about the Greatest Generation.....but let
me tell you my little brother-and the, hundreds
of thousands that served with him-they were as
great a group as any this nation has ever put
together! They stood in the gap. They
weathered the storm. They gave. And they
gave. And they gave. And if you say different I


several months old to nine and ten years
old. It doesn't take very long for them to
get antsy and before long, from behind me,
I hear a child being scolded for doing what
children do, ask questions.
Some people, so engrossed in the
proceedings, allow children the freedom to
walk in and out, out and in, until finally a
bailiff who has had enough whispers to
them to either keep the child inside or go
outside with them.
Thank God they don't allow food and
drinks because it really would be a circus
with all the little packages of peanuts,
candy, and cookies getting opened every
few minutes.
It must be very distracting for the jury
too. I watch as their eyes dart to the child
who is vying with an attorney for attention.
For some of these little ones, when the
mood hits, there's no way of stopping them
from squealing aloud. By the time the
bailiff gets over there, the damage has
been done.
I say just keep them home.


will fight you today!
You can forgive Jane Fonda if you want to.
Just don't mention her to me!
David Mark didn't make it to my graduation.
I didn't make it to his. I came to Florida to teach
school. He flew off to Vietnam.
I lay in my safe bed at night and tried to
imagine where he was at that very moment.
What was he going through? Was he getting
enough to eat? Was it cold or hot over there?
Didn't they have a rainy season? Was anybody
shooting at him right now? Was he making any
of those night jumps? I would pore over the
newspapers every day trying to see if any
camps had been overrun in his area. I wasn't
really sure, and David never said, but I didn't
think they trained those Green Beret guys to
haul ammunition up to the front or to guard the
food supply.
I would call home and talk to Mother. Her
voice wasn't trembling, but it wasn't normal.
"Son, your Dad made it back." It didn't seem
fair to put her through this again. "We can pray
without ceasing." I saw her age ten years in
one...... That's a demand on the home front
that those protesters and a lot of politicians
never seem to understand.
I taught history and coached football. He
made history!
When I met him at the airport after a long
thirteen months I wanted to throw my arms
around him. I wanted to kiss him. I wanted to
jump up and down and shout. I wanted to have
an old fashion praise God tent meeting.....
I said "Hi, Dave."
He shook my hand, "K.C., it's good to be
home."
That was the long and short of what I know
about his time "over there". David Mark ain't
big on a lot of ceremony.
He had always been quiet. And you had to
know him well and look closely to really see it.
He had changed! I don't mean the spark of life
had gone out.....but he had a seasoned look.
'An older look. A hurt look. And sometimes, I
think, 'a little bewildered look. Clearly he had
seen things that had altered forever his take on
life. I wanted to ask, but it wasn't my business.
I was just thankful to have him back.
Over the years I've been with him when we'd
run into a guy with an Airborne hat or a Ranger
button or some reference that he was in
Vietnam. He and David would exchange a few
words about where they were, what time frame
they were "in country" and there is always that
"knowing nod". A nod of mutual respect and
understanding-a camaraderie that is above my
comprehension. We may not have fully
understood and appreciated the situation. But
time, history, bad politics, idiot protesters,
biased news coverage, Hollywood and Jane
Fonda can not diminish one iota from what
those men did for their country!
The traveling Vietnam Veterans Memorial
was in our county last week. I stood as
reverently as I know how before that Wall and
scrutinized every name. My little brother knew
some of them.....
Respectfully,
Kes


March came in like a lion, it's warm
one day, chilly the next, and although
the season doesn't officially start until
March 20 or21 (I never can get that
straight) I've got a serious case of
spring fever.
Sunny days!
Redbuds blooming!
Easter, Earth Day and April Fool's
Day (which was much more fun,
actually, when I was a kid and
subjected my younger siblings to a
variety of good-natured pranks. Well,
mostly good-natured.)
I'm not the only one, of course.
Check with local teachers trying to
keep the attention of students fully
cognizant that spring break looms in
all its carefree loveliness. Ask garden
centers who are selling gardening
supplies as fast as they can get them
in. Agricultural folks, too, are seeing
last year's promises come true, calves,
foals, lambs, kids and chicks arriving
daily. (For you cityfolk, kids and
chicks equals baby goats and
chickens, not stylish young women
with children in tow. Well, I mean,
they're out this time of year too, I
suppose.)
So it's little surprise that spring break
'(in Gadsden County, anyway,)
corresponds with National Spring
Fever Week (March 19-25) or that the
day before, March 18, is designated as
National Forgive Mom and Dad Day.

Gadsden County Turns The
Corner?

Dear Editor:

All of the recent euphoria over Gadsden
County turning the corner seems a little
premature to me. In my opinion the euphoria
has been created by full tax coffers. Our county
politicians are giddy over this new money and do
not see that these dollars mostly come from
increased assessments and not from
improvements to properties. Instead of wasting
these revenues on new political monuments, they
should give pay raises to our long suffering
county employees and create a "rainy-day fund."
An example of a proposed political monument
is a new hospital. Most of the doctors in this area
are employees ofTMH, and these doctors did
not send their patients to the old hospital. Why '
wbuld a new hospital be any different?
Another political monument being discussed is
the purchase of Robinson's Fish Camp. The talk
is that it will give more residents of the county
access to Lake Talquin. Lake Talquin always has
been a public lake, and there have been free
places to access the lake for years, in addition to
the private marinas that charge a nominal fee to
land a boat there.
Our county leaders need to focus on the
important issues of the present and refrain from
creating even more problems for the future.

Utility Bill Horror Story

Dear Editor.

We read your horror story in this (the) paper.
Our horror story is our utility bill was $504.48.
The gas alone was $367.00. HELP!

Dear Editor:

I come to you within a country wherein black
dock workers were once legally given cocaine to
increase productivity. The practice was made
illegal only when the user's morality around
white women became a question.
There was a time when Quincy had many
white political representatives; their greatest crime
was they ignored the black community. Now,
the majority of our city's representatives are black.
Alas, I have learned that it is better to be
ignored than to be shown that you have no rights
that need be respected; it is better to be ignored


be called "Joe." People who are
actually named Joe and hate their
names are allowed to curl into a fetal
position on the living room floor and
remain that way until.
Respect Your Cat Day, March 28.
Like you ever had a choice.
National Take a Walk in the Park
Day, March 30. If you've waited this
long, you've either been in a witness
protection program or live in
Nebraska. Actually, I think I read that
most of the people living in Nebraska
ARE in a witness protection program.
Then there's the Energy Policy Act
of 2005, which means beginning this
year, Daylight Saving Time begins at
2 ajn. March 11 and ends at 2 a.m.
Nov. 4.
Whose actual idea that was, I have
no clue, but I like it.
Studies by the U.S. Department of
Transportation report Daylight Saving
Time cuts the country's energy
consumption by about 1 percent daily.
Not an astounding figure. The theory
is that people use fewer lights when
the sun's up than they do after dark.
Whatever.
So you have to set your clocks
forward and get used to the new time.
I can cope. The extra light after
working hours more than makes up
for that, and you can do stuff outside
-and see what it is that you're doing.
Spring, right around the comer I'm
psyched. Designate your own day and
celebrate the season.


than to be provoked by glory seeking wolves in
sheep's clothing.
There was once a time when ifI was sold a
lemon, I would yet make money from it by
selling $100.00 parts for $15.00, etc. to my
neighbors. Now, city codes will not allow the
common citizen to keep such cars in their yards.
The codes have ruined both stock and the trade
of cheaper mechanics for poor people. There was
once a time when I had pet dogs; their job was to
bark in case of intruders. [Note: "pets," not pit-
bulls or K-9's etc.]. The codes said that I had to
lock them up or tie them up for the rest of their
lives-as though they had committed a crime; I
refused to be that cold to my loving animals; I
took them away!
Perhaps, some may ask, ifI care so much, why
don't I run for office! Well, the answer lies in the
fact that I sometimes do idiotic things that I feel
are sensible; for four years, I refused to file a
dependency claim with Social Security and the
VA for my little girl (I had my reasons). Social
Security owed me about $16,000 dollars. When I
did file, only $3,700 dollars was sent by Social
Security and that was sent to the child's
grandmother, even though the courts never
ordered me to pay any back pay. So far, I have
heard nothing from the VA. Who would want
such a down to represent them in office? A down
who allows the government to rob his child!
We no longer have a hospital in Gadsden; I'd
think that you have enough idiots in office! In
my day, the young leaders looked forward to a
day of respect; in this day, the young leaders look
forward to control, even if it begins with control
over those who have never been free of poverty.
What dignity have I left? I regret having fought
the great battles that have spawn this heartless
and arrogant crew. I have been young and now
am old; I am a Grandmaster Johnny Bums. I
realize that there are many cowards who want to
make an example of me, so that they might be
seen as somebody.
In the wake of such news, if need be, I shall
become "nothing" to reveal their true values to
history! When Rev. King was assassinated, he was
freed from the future and its ominous realizations
that I am forced to live with. I live within a
country where it is easier to lock up 10 poor drug
dealers than it is to put one poor female user into
a bonafide rehab center.
I will not be silent. It is better to be confined
than to live in "a prison of fear!" It is better to
forget than to think as willed by small minds.
Even a strong tree must sometimes bend to
receive the light opposite an obstacle; I notice that
within this black history month, a cold spell hit
our area,, and someone made it possible for some
of our poor elderly citizens to get a much needed
break on utilities-maybe all hope is not yet lost!
In this hell, we have a thousand religions, even so,
conscience remains as our true judge, and
conscientiousness is our true test!

Undercover operation results in arrest, drug charges


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

When 46-year-old Gary D.
Napier went to the Farmer's
Market on U.S. Highway 90
west earlier this week, his plan
was to plunk down $13,500 as a
down payment on several
pounds of marijuana and a
pound of methamphetamine.
The remaining estimated street
value of $15,000 he expected to
pay on consignment.
What he got was arrested
because his deal was the result of
a three-month long investigation


by the Gadsden County Sheriffs
Office Vice & Narcotics Unit,
the Florida Department of Law
Enforcement, and the U.S. Drug
Enforcement Administration.
"We had known him as being
a drug dealer for a long time. He
let it be known that he was it the
market for a large amount of
marijuana and methampheta-
mine. He also bragged that he
had buyers for the drugs in
Gadsden and Jackson Counties,"
said Lt. Jim Corder of the
GCSO.
He said for a long time
methamphetamine was not a


popular drug in Gadsden, but
that trend is changing. "For the
past two years it was pretty
much in the counties surround-
ing us, now we're noticing more
and more of it here," Corder
said.
.When arrested, Napier had in
his possession a loaded .45-cal-
iber handgun. Investigators, with
the assistance of the Jackson
County Sheriffs Office, went to
Napier's home where they also
'found approximately two
pounds of marijuana along with
several firearms with ammuni-
tion.

County accepts recommendation for family exemption ordinance


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

The Board of County
Commission, after months of
meetings, accepted the recom-
mendation of the Planning and
Zoning Commission for an
immediate family exemption
ordinance.


The ordinance is expected to
resolve conflicts between past
applications for immediate fam-
ily exemptions and the current
law. The existing code language
was often confusing and left
property owners bewildered as
to what they could and could not
do with their property.
Initially, the immediate fami-


ly exemption was intended to
bring relief to parents who
wanted to give their children a
part of their own property, even
if it did not meet the structure to
acreage guidelines.
The new ordinance seeks to
answer any questions. However,
after 2008 the exemption is no
longer valid.


In other matters: Sherry
VanLandingham and Max
Martinez gave a progress report
from the Gadsden Health
Council. He criticized the news
media for not printing enough
"good news" about Gadsden
County. His sentiments were
echoed by Commission
Chairman Brenda Holt.


He said that the county had
received $500,000 to deal with
infant mortality and that the
Healthy Start Coalition had
received more than $150,000
for administrative cost. "In all
we have brought in more than
$1 million dollars," he pro-
clAimed.
Commissioners also gave


conditional approval to Dale
Landry, CEO of Village
Architects, Inc. to seek funds for
a Buffalo Academy for Gadsden
County. Landry wants to pursue
funding to build a Department
of Juvenile Justice Low to
Moderate Risk (Level 6) resi-
dential facility servicing youth-
ful offenders from the Big Bend.


City considering lawsuit against energy supplier


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

For years Quincy's utility
customers have complained and,
questioned the fuel adjustment
cost that goes up and down for
no rhyme or reason.
Quincy's city attorney is now
looking into whether citizens of
Quincy have been charged more
than they should have by
Progress Energy through the
fuel adjustment costs.
During the Feb. 26 commis-
sion meeting, Mayor Sherrie
Taylor made public correspon-
dence she had received con-
cerning a petition filed with the
Public Service Commission on
behalf of all Florida payers,


seeking to recover $143 million
dollars from Progress Energy.
The petition alleges that
Progress Energy overcharged
customers through the fuel
adjustment provision of each
customer's utility bill.
Specifically, the petition says
Progress Energy consciously
used the more.expensive bitu-
minous coal at its Crystal River
unit 4 and 5 from 1996 to 2005,
rather than a significantly less
costly niixture of bituminous
and sub-bituminous coal at the
facility.
McLean said the Crystal
River facility was specifically
designed, permitted and built in
the 1970s and 80s to burn a 50-
50 mixture of bituminous and


sub-bituminous coal. The cost
of constructing the facility is
included in the base rate
charged each customer.
"Instead of buying cheaper
coal early when it would have
made'more sense economically,
they purchased coal from their
own companies," McLean said.
The petition, filed by the
Office of Public Counsel, is
supported by an expert's report
showing that Progress Energy
failed to manage its coal cost
properly, the fuel allowance
cost was the burden of the rate
payers from 1996 to 2005 and
that the amount was in excess of
$143 million dollars, excluding
interest.
Most of the excessive costs


occurred between 2000 and
2005.
"I'll be meeting with the city
manager and utilities director
and reviewing all contracts cov-
ering 1996 to 2005. I'm particu-
larly interested in any provi-
sions of the contract which
guarantees or speaks to the rea-
sonable pricing of fuel cost and
any references to Crystal
River," McLean said.
He said the city may be able
to seek compensation through
the current petition that is
before the Public Service
Commission. He will have a
detailed written report during
the March 13 meeting of the
city commission.


Gretna commissioners talk term limits


by LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor

Saying Gretna was a dying
city before the current City
Commission was elected, city
officials and employees made
their case Tuesday night for
extending council terms to four
years.
"This consent order the city
had had for 13 years ... we think
part of the reason is the change
of the commission," City
Manager Antonio Jefferson
said. "Every year, a commis-
sioner faces re-election. In my
opinion, I don't think that has
promoted a commission that
can work cohesively or be
focused on solving the prob-
lem." .
The state Department of
Environmental Protection
issued a consent drder against
the city 13 years ago over flaws
it found in the city's water and
wastewater treatment plants.
City Commission members
said Tuesday night they've
made progress on solving those


problems, and fear a change in
the makeup of the commission
would slow momentum.
Up for election this year are
Mayor Nadine Smith,
Commissioner Anthony, Baker
and Commissioner Helen
Franks.
"The city is on the verge of
completing something this city
has been trying to do for more
than 10 years," Commissioner
John Smith said. "Gretna, to tell
you the truth, the way it was
going, it was dying. It had not
moved for 14 years. It's the cic-
tizen's choice ... it's a crucial
decision. If we're going to com-
plete some of the things we've
started now, we need more than
two years."
Newly-hired Public Works
Director Bill Revels's words
were a bit stronger.


SClary's Bail
Aond Agency

"We have a lot of things we
have to accomplish in Gretna in
a short amount of time," he said.
"I met with DEP before I started
here they were talking guns
and escorts out of here. They
are much more friendly to us
now ... we can turn this around
and make Gretna a real nice lit-
tle town. I'm looking at a three-
year program if the commis-
sion changes, I'm dead in the
water and the city dies again."
Commissioners unanimously
approved a motion to put the
issue on a referendum for the
April 24 ballot.


In other matters, commis-
sioners:
Approved the hiring of a
part-time school crossing guard.
Approved the purchase of
one police car and one pickup
truck for public works.
Approved a proclamation
supporting a critical access des-
ignation for the Gadsden
County Hospital.
Scheduled a workshop on
the impact of proposed legisla-
tive property tax reforms for
April 20 at 6:30 p.m.

Major equestrian event set for weekend


by LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor

Equine enthusiasts have
enjoyed attending the three-day
Red Hills Horse Trials in
Tallahassee since its inception in
1998.
Organizers would like to see
more folks at the 120-acre site -
whether they're horse lovers or
not.
"First, we want to get more
people coming and checking it out
and learn more about what the
Tallahassee Parks & Recreation
Department, Tall Timbers
Research Station and Land
Conservancy and The Northwest
Florida Water Management
District are doing to enhance our
communities and our lives," said
Colin Phipps, President of the
RHHT Corporate Board of
Directors.
Phipps, a Tallahassee ecologist
and horse enthusiast, allows com-
petitors and spectators to use his
property for the cross-country
events. The adjacent Elinor
Klapp-Phipps Park is the site of
dressage and stadium jumping
events.
The cross-country course was
built by Hugh Lochore of
Scotland and designed by Capt.
Mark Phillips, Chef D'Equipe and
technical advisor for the United
States Equestrian Team and a for-
mer member of the British
Olympic Team. The course fea-
tures a wide range of daunting
obstacles, from water to banks and
ditches, that weave through
Phipps' aroretum.
If some of those terms are
Greek to you, that's all the more

rider, will be on the second day of this year's Red Hills Horse
Trials. (Photo by Shannon Brinkman, courtesy Peter Mitchell


Associates)

reason to attend the event, Phipps
said.
"I think certain groups might
not have had the interest in attend-
ing, and a lot of it was probably
that they had not been introduced
to the sport," he said. "We'd like to
see more people from more com-
munities Thomasville, Quincy,
Crawfordville, Monticello, etc., -
represented in our volunteer corps


and as spectators."
Proceeds from the RHHT ben-
efit several non-profit organiza-
tions, including the Elinor Klapp-
Phipps Park, which is owned by
the Northwest Florida Water
Management District; Tall
Timbers Research Station;
Tallahassee Friends of Our Parks
Foundation and Red Hills Horse
Camp for children.


In the equestrian world, the
Red Hills Horse Trials is kind of
like the Master's is to golfers. It is
a major evening competition held
by the United States Eventing
Association and draws 40,000
spectators and 225 national and
international competitors annual-
ly. Entries in the RHHT are auto-
matically entered in the USEA
Gold Cup Series.
"I think it is time to be more
aggressive in asking the public to
come out and get more involved,
be you a spectator or combination
of spectator and volunteer, no
matter your ethnicity, faith, race or
social circles. We are a meaning-
ful event for this area, hosting
international and Olympic horses
and riders," Phipps said.
The event,begins March 9 with
dressage from 7:30 a.m. 5:30
p.m. Dressage is a bit like horse
ballet based on a sequential train-
ing system in which horse and
rider work together to execute a
series of movements that high-
lights the horse's innate athletic
ability.
Cross country begins at 7:30
a.m. March 10 and lasts until 5:30
p.m. and consists of a challenging
obstacle course for horses.
March 11, horses and riders
will test their skills at stadium
jumping, which requires them to
jump a series of painted fences in
an enclosed arena without falling,
knocking any over or balking.
The Red Hills Food Court, Red
Hills Avenue of Shops and
Saddler's Row will be open all
three days; on Saturday and
Sunday, visitors can see wildlife
exhibits and environmental and
educational displays. There is also


a kids' fun area and kids' pony
rides.
All that takes work to pull
together, and Red Hills relies
heavily on volunteers, with rough-
ly 500 people donating time,
knowledge and physical labor to
pull it off.
"We'd like to hear from anyone
who wishes to get involved in
future events," Phipps said. "It is
imperative that we have our
potential volunteer list early
because there is a need for a
degree of education in many of the
positions. Often, it is not as simple


as it seems. Obviously, we are
looking for volunteers who will be
generous with their time and their
talents and we feel that they, in the
end, will really enjoy and get ful-
fillment from their services."
To find out more about volun-
teering for next year's event, call
850-580-4020 or email
rhht07 @earthlink.net.
Tickets are $10 per adult or
$20 for a three-day pass; children
accompanied by an adult are free.
Tickets are available onsite or
prior to the event at 4000 North
Meridian Road in Tallahassee.

Midway residents, officials debate use of grant money for parks

Several Midway residents
objected to the use of grant money
for a new city park near Monroe
Creek Subdivision at last week's
Midway City Council meeting.
The\ toward-repairing the park behind
Hilltop Subdivision, which has


gotten steady criticism from a few
vocal Hilltop residents.
City Manager Paul Poller said
the city has applied for a $200,000
grant to revamp the Hilltop West
Park, but won't know whether it
will get the funding until July.
The matter came up during the
second reaclitii of an ordinance"

amendment was requested by the

state Department of Community
Affairs, which wants the city to
add'potential revenues and expen-
ditures for the Community Block
Development Grant it received in
2004 and the same to the CDGB
grant the city was given last year.
The amended budget shows'
i additional revenue's and e'pi.n'dhi-.
tpres for the 2004 granti'in' the;
amount of $588,233 and in the
amount of $650,000 for the 2006

Florida Recreation Development
Assistance Program grant from
the state- Department .of
Environmental Protection for
Hilltop Park West.
The DCA notified the city that
it had several concerns what it
termed one "finding" and one.
"concern" early in January.
Poller responded with a letter
addressing DCA's concerns over
the city's amendment of the budg-
et.
"With respect to the finding,
we understand your concern about
amending the budget. The City
adopts a budget prior to the begin-
ning of a fiscal year in accordance
with Florida Statutes," the letter
reads. "We amend the budget near
the end of each fiscal year to pick
up any revenues and expenditures
that were not anticipated.
However, it is our understanding
that your department requires us to
budget both the revenue and
expenditure sides of the budget
even though the money may not.
be received ... with respect to the
concern, we recognize the project
is behind schedule, however, we
are dealing with three separate


businesses and have been working
very closely with Steve Fellerman
in your office.
"We have one project that will
put in a turn lane into the Gadsden
Station 10/90 Commerce Park.
Although we have given the
Florida Department of
Tihfsiofstation four separate draw-
ings, each of which changes the
configuration of the intersection to
what we believed they wanted, we
are still not able to get them to give
us an answer."
Several audience members at
last Thursday's meeting said they
would like to see the Hilltop West
Park project move forward as
well. Grant money the council
voted to accept will be used to
build a park at Monroe Creek
Subdivision; several residents take
issue with that.
Lucia Mikutis, who lives in
Hilltop, said she is bothered by
both the sight of and the activities
that take place at the'park behind
her home.
"I'd like to know why that grant
was not designated for Eugene
Lamb Park," she said. "Why do
we have that little park in our
backyard? It's going to take more
than $200,000 to fix that park it's
going to take millions. My sugges-
tion is to move all that stuff over to
the Eugene Lamb Park where peo-
ple have children."
The park was in place before
Hilltop Subdivision was built,
Poller said.
"There were no houses there
when the park was put in." he said.
"Well you should have left it
alone," Mikutis said. '"I can ask
Gov. (Charlie) Crist whether we
can redirect those funds he can
tell me. He'll come out here and
look at it."
Council member James Hinson
said the Hilltop Park was poorly
designed, but made a motion to


approve acceptance of the grant
for the new park, cautioning city
officials to use care in choosing its
designer.
"(The Hilltop Park) is just a
bad, bad design. I wouldn't want
that in my backyard," he said.
Council members approved the
..I. h. am nendifg" the budget
Sunanimously '.
In other action, council mem-
bers:
*Approved on second reading a
franchise giving Waste
Management Inc. exclusive rights
to pick up residential garbage
within city limits. The two-year
franchise calls for a rate of $14.67
monthly for weekly residential
pickup; commercial pickup will
be open for whichever company
decides to bid on it. Council mem-
bers voted 3-1 for the ordinance,
with Council Member Chuck
Willis dissenting "because the City

Midway mud bogging causes noise concerns


by LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor

A mud bog operation in
Midway has several residents
complaining about the noise it
generates.
But its developer, James
Green, said the 100-acre facility
has the potential to bring thou-
sands of dollars into the city.
At last week's Midway City
Council meeting, several coun-
cil members said they'd gotten
complaints about the noise
inherent to the activity.
"This is very, very noisy,


with these trucks," Councilman
James Hinson said.
"I have the same concern,"
Councilwoman Ella Dickey
said. "I hear that noise at night ...
if the citizens cannot hear what's
going on (because of the' mud
bog noise), we've got a prob-
lem."
Green, who races on the
"Trucks Gone Wild" mud bog
circuit, said he began develop-
ment of the Midway Mud Bog
off Brickyard Road six to seven
months ago.
"Any time -we go to a race,
we spend $7,000-$8,000 by the

time you figure in gasoline,
food, parts and hotel rooms for
the trucks and their drivers.
Everything adds up. That kind
of money could be coming into
Midway," he said.
Initially, Green said, he
opened the mud bug for a few
friends of his. People started
coming out to watch. Then to
participate.
Green has agreed to put a
stop to the bogging until he can
work with city and Midway
Chamber of Commerce officials
to see whether a resolution to
the problem can be found.
"This is something that
would put Midway on the map,"
he said. "No one can use the
facility now because we have
kind of a cease order until we
can work things out. I've gotten
1,000-1,800 emails a week from


people wanting to know if the
bog hole is open people from
Gadsden County, Wakulla
County, Taylor County, Leon
County, Franklin County ... we
have no problem with setting a
time in the morning to mud bog
instead of at night."
Gadsden County
Commissioner Eugene Lamb,
who attends most Midway City
Council meetings, said at last
week's meeting he's not happy
with the situation.
"You've got a church right
down the road from it ... they
should have a permit," he said.
City Manager Paul Pilier said
he was never made aware that
the activity was taking place, but
that it's an issue worth looking at
carefully.
"I think it's a huge issue for
this town and I don't think it


ought to be decided tonight," he
said last week. "This will create
parking issues, law enforcement
issues, noise issues, fire depart-
ment and EMT issues. It's
almost a special event the
council did pass an ordinance for
special events several years
ago."
Midway Chamber of
Commerce President. Jerry
Range asked the council to con-
sider allowing the mud bog to
open one Saturday during day-
light hours and for City Council
and city Planning and Zoning
members to come out to get a
firsthand look at it. No date was
immediately set.
Green said Monday he has
big plans for the off-road park
and is hopeful he and govern-
ment officials can come to an
agreement.

"What I see as a benefit of
this is that I am one of the few
people, a minority businessman,
with the ability to provide a
development that could bring
thousands and thousands of dol-
lars to Midway in terms of rev-
enue and jobs," he said.
"Nobody complains about the
train that runs through that same
area ... we intend to build an out-
door amphitheater for concerts.

rity for us. We are planning to

City Council members voted
to table the issue until the city's

Commission had a chance to
review it again and city and
chamber officials meet with
Green.
Three of the council's seven
members were not present at last
Thursday's meeting.

membership in the organization
and perform community service
projects as well.
"Things got started with the
Panther Battalion participating
in the Gadsden Technical
Institute parade in Quincy on
Feb. 9, where the cadets showed
their best moves," Martinez
said. "On Feb. 13, the Panther
Battalion travelled to
Riverchase Nursing Home to
help the residents write
Valentine cards and to cheer
them up. This is an annual event
that the cadets have been doing
for the last six years.
Citizenship and community
service are a major part of the
JROTC program at WGHS
JROTC. The cadets said this
was a very meaningful experi-
ence for them."
The WGHS Panther
Battalion iS an honor unit with a
"distinction A" rating. The dis-
tinction A rating is given to only
the top 5 percent of schools in
the nation.
Twenty-five of the school's
JROTC participants travelled to
Chipley Feb. 24 for the
Northwest Florida Regional
Drill meet, where they placed
second in demonstration drill.
"The battalion brought great
merit to itself by placing second
in the exhibition drill event at
the regional level," Martinez
said.

Parade in February. (Photo submitted)


The week before, WGHS
Rifle Team member Hugo
Cantero won a second-place
trophy for marksmanship dur-
ing the annual Big Bend Rifle
Tournament in Taylor County.
Members of the WGHS drill
team participated in a parade in
Carrabelle honoring World War
II veterans Saturday, and
WGHS will host a "Cadet
Challenge" in April.
"It's a physical fitness com-
petition," Martinez explained.
"Then we'll go to the Olympiad


in Taylor. County for a regional
sports competition categories
include softball, basketball, tug
of war and drill competitions."
The. WGHS JROTC traces
its lineage from former
Greensboro High School and
Chattahoochee High School
JROTC programs. WGHS was
born when those two schools
closed. The program' is pretty
popular at WGHS, Martinez

said, and enrollment usually
averages about 120 cadets a
year.

CONCURRENT NOTICE

NOTICE TO THE PUBLIC OF FINDING OF NO SIGNIFICANT IMPACT ON THE ENVIRONMENT AND REQUEST FOR
RELEASE OF FUNDS AND REMOVAL OF ENVIRONMENTAL CONDITIONS TO ALL INTERESTED AGENCIES,
GROUPS AND PERSONS:
Gadsden County intends to undertake an Economic Development Infrastructure Extension project to be funded by a Community
Development Block Grant. The project will include approximately 365 LF of 8" watermain, 1 fire hydrant, approximately 2,500 LF
of 6" sewer forcemain and 930 LF of 8" sewer main, a sewer pump station, 380 LF of 2" steel gas main, 300 LF of 24' wide asphalt
roadway, and 720 LF of 12' gravel access roadway to a new Huddle House restaurant to be located on 2 acres of land located at Blue
Star Highway (Hwy 90 West of Quincy), approximately 5 miles from U.S. Interstate 10 in unincorporated Gadsden County.

An environmental review of the project has been conducted in accordance with 24 CFR 58, and it has been determined that the activ-
ities will have no significant impact on the environment. Therefore, an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS), as described-in the
National Environmental Policy Act, will not be prepared. Specific reason for finding of no significant impact and decision not to pre-
pare an EIS is as follows:

An environmental assessment was performed which verified that the only impacts to the environment would be minimal and benefi-
cial.

No further environmental review of the project will be conducted.

An Environmental Review Record (ERR), which documents the environmental review of the project, is on file at 221 N. Madison
Street, Gadsden County, Quincy, Florida and is available for public examination between the hours of 9:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. All
interested parties are invited to submit written comments to the attention of Ms. Farnita Saunders, Director, Community Development
at Gadsden County, Post Office Box 1799, Quincy, FL 32353-1799. Written comments must be received on or before March 26.2007.
All comments will be considered, and no administrative action will be taken until comments are resolved.

The project described above will be funded with Community Development Block Grant funds from the State of Florida and the U.S.
Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), under Title I of the Housing and Community Development Act. Gadsden
County is certifying to the State and to HUD that it, and its chief elected official, in his or her official capacity, consent to accept the
jurisdiction of the federal courts if an action is brought to enforce responsibilities related to environmental reviews, decision making,
and action; and that these responsibilities have been satisfied. The legal effect of the certification is that upon approval, Gadsden
County may expend CDBG funds and the State and HUD will have satisfied their responsibilities under the National Environmental
Policy Act.

Gadsden County anticipates that its Certification and Request for Release of Funds and Removal of Environmental Conditions will be
submitted to the Department of Community Affairs (DCA) on or about March 27, 2007. DCA will then allow a 15-day comment peri-
od before taking any action on the request. Objections will only be accepted by DCA if they meet one of the following conditions: (1)
the certification was not executed by the environmental certifying officer or another officer of the local government approved by DCA;
or (2) the ERR indicates omission of a required decision, finding, or step applicable to the environmental review process. Objections
must be prepared and submitted in accordance with 25 C.FR. 58 within 15 days following DCA's receipt of the Request for Release
of Funds. If you have comments or objections, submit them to the Florida Department of Community Affairs, CDBG Program, 2555
Shumard Oak Boulevard, Tallahassee, Florida 32399-2100 immediately to ensure that they are received before the expiration of the
comment period.

JAGUARS LOOK TO NEXT YEAR
East Gad;den made a good last
quarter run in Lakeland Thursday night
but couldn't overcome Lakeland
Kathleen m the state's 4A semi-finals.
Even \ ith the loss coach Demetnic
Salters and his Jaguar team had a great
run finishing the year with a 27-4 mark
and a state tournament inp
Next veal Salters returns three
starters in center Sam McLaurin, forward
Reshard MNcGl and guard Leonardo
Deloney. Look for the Jaguars to be
ranked high in pte-season and to carr'
that high tanking though out the whole
year.
GATORS MAY BE BACK ON

With a top seed in the SEC
Tournament dius week they get a break in
the bracket match up.
I drink Flonda wall \wui the tourna-
ment again or at least make the inals.
With that they ill get a number 1
seed in the NCAA Tournament. A num-
ber 1 seed \was in jepoaidy after last
week's loss to Tennessee.
NOLES NEED ACC TOURNA-
MENT WINS
FSU is piobabl\ just 5 points away
hom having an NCAA bid locked up.
With 5 more points they could have had 3
more mins and a 22-8 record heading into
the ACC Tournament Thursda\. They
would have also been a higher seed than
they are and could have avoided the path


they will have to take to now get a bid.
The Noles face Clemson, a team
that snatched a pair of close ,wins from
FSU this yeaI, in the opening round.
A win in that game would get the
Noles a game against North Carolina. It's
not out of the realm of possibility that
FSU could spring an upset against the Tar
Heels. If that happens put the Seminoles
in the Big Dance. If that doesn't happen.
put them in the NIT.

Jaguars fall in state semi-final game
gt-** i al 9


by Joe Ferolito

Lakeland Kathleen
packed it in, East Gadsden
couldn't get their shots over
them to fall. The results was a
60-48 win for Kathleen in the
Florida Finals 4A semi-finals
Thursday night in the Lakeland
Center.
The Red Devils and the


Jaguars played a mostly fast
paced game and there were a
number of turn overs for both
teams. The most turn overs for
East Gadsden came from trying
to force the ball inside against
the athletic zone of Kathleen.
The Red Devils had a 10-
8 lead after a quarter and upped
it to 25-17 by the half. After 3
quarters it was 39-28 and then


the Jaguars made it interesting.
A pair of quick baskets by
Sam McLaurin, steals by guards
Leonardo Deloney and Darius
Jackson that led to points, and a
three point field goal by Kevin
Derrico got East Gadsden to
with in 2 points at the mid-way
point of the last quarter.
The effort also got the
Jaguars in foul trouble. The


Red Devils took advantage of
that and pretty much stayed at
the foul line the rest of the
game. In fact Kathleen took 25
foul shots in the last quarter, hit-
ting 16 of them.
The Red Devils finished
with 4 players in double figures
mostly due to the free throw
results. Terance Howell and
Miguel Paul had 15 points each,


and Dominique Davis and Idell
Bell hit 10 apiece.
McLaurin's 15 led East
Gadsden and Deloney put in 13.
"I was proud of our
effort." Jaguar coach Demetric
Salters said. "We just couldn't
hit any shots with consistency
early and got in a hole." "I
thought we might overcome it
but they hit .their free throws


down the stretch and deserved
to win." "We made it to state
this year and are already look-
ing forward to next year and
another shot at things." Salters.
continued.
East Gadsden finished the
season at 27-4.
Kathleen lost to Monsignor
Pace in the 4A Finals Saturday
afternoon.


EGHS bops Rickards, Carrabelle; lifts record to 8-1


Randell Estelle feels pretty
good about the season his East
Gadsden baseball team is having
thus far.
Last Thwsda. .theN\ \on
their first district baseball game in
three years when they defeated
Rickards in Tallahassee 10-6.
The Jaguars then came back


to win a home game Saturday over
Carrabelle 13-3, and raised their
record to 8-1 for the campaign.
The win over Rickards came
after'the Jaguars had taken a 4-iI
lead.only to till behifid 5-4. "I felt
we held our composure, and
showed that we could come back
and win a ball game." Estelle said.


Austin Mahon was the win-
ning pitcher in the game. He came
on in relief and shut down the
Raiders in the last three innings
:allowing the. Jaagu.u to take die
;win. ''
East Gadsden had two big 4
run innings. Alvin Bush II, sin-
gled in a pair of runs in.the second


frame and Montez Fryson and
Alondrae Gunn had key r.b.i. hits
in the fourth, all big hits in the win.
Charles Tuazon scored 3
runs in the game, Gunn finished
with 2 hits.
Saturday, East Gadsden took
advantage of 9 Carrabelle errors to
win the mercy rule game.


"We got some early breaks
in the game and won pretty easy."
Estelle said.
Brett Wynn pitched all the
way and was the winning pitcher,
notching his fourth--win against 0
losses.
Fryson had a bases loaded
triple in the first inning, and Julis


McGlockton drove in 2 runs with
a third inning triple.
Tuazon had 2 hits during the
day.
The Jaguars played Bay in a
district game Wednesday and will

Bush nominated by Leon County School


Deputies attend grant workshop


Based on true events,
"Freedom Writers" is the story of
Erin Gruwell who was a first-year
high school teacher assigned to
teach students considered to be
at-risk or un-teachable. Gruwell
introduced the students to the
works of Anne Frank to try and
teach them tolerance. The stu-
dents responded by keeping their
own diaries about violence and
other negative influences in their
lives, thus sparking their love of
writing. Just recently the events
of Gruwell's teaching life was
captured on film and made into a
movie entitled, "Freedom Writers
Diaries of Room 203" and can
now be seen at theatres cross the
nation.
Recently, Leon County
Schools searched the county for
an educator/teacher who, in their
opinion, paralleled or exempli-
fied the characteristics of
Gruwell, the district nominated
Daisy Carpenter Bush for the
"Freedom Writer" Teacher for
Leon County Schools.
Daisy Bush has been teaching


for many years, beginning with
her first three years in Quincy at
the former Quincy Educational
Center, an alternative school
designed to reach those students
who may not thrive in the regular
school setting. After leaving
Gadsden County, she took a job
at Nims Middle School where for
three years she continued to work
with at-risk students. According
to Bush, it was her love of writing
and the passion in which she
imparted the writing process to
her students that served as a link
to their success in other subjects.
"Once students achieved accom-
plishments in my class, they tried
even harder to achieve the same
kind of success in other subject
areas.
Over the last 12 years, Bush
has served as English/Language
Arts teacher from at-risk to gifted
students, Dean of Students,
Reading Coach and now the
Coordinator for the Pre-
International Baccalaureate
Program at Nims Middle School.
In this position she is responsible


for the overall success of the pro-
gram, recruiting high performing
students from across the district,
curriculum and the day to day
interactions of the students the
program serves. Even though she
is no longer teaching in the class-
room, she still teaches by exam-
ple. She has a great impact on the
success of students as she finds
time to be a guest teacher in class-
rooms modeling reading strate-
gies and the writing process. On
any given day, you will see her
office filled with Pre-IB and non-
Pre IB students.
When asked what makes her a
Freedom Writer, Bush responded,
"Listen to your students, find out
what they need and provide those
needs through your passion."
"Writing is a tool that can be used
to express thoughts and and
ideas, heal hearts and minds,
solicit and offer information.
Most especially writing is a way
to unite people from all walks of
life, all regions of the world and
serves as a catalyst for change,"
Bush said.


Gadsden County Sherif's Office deputies did something last Friday that they seldom get to do.
They attended a workshop on how to access grants for their various divisions. Grants, said Nancy
Gee, are available to law enforcement almost every area from traffic to juvenile crime prevention.
And, as officers learned ways to access these possible funding sources, more revenues for GCSO
will become available to help citizens. (Photo by Alice DuPont).

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

Thousands showed up Sunday afternoon to see and be seen at the Spring Car Show on Joe Adams
Road (behind the National Guard Armory) sponsored by local DJ personality Joe "Cadillac Joe" Nelson.
The mostly young, hip-hop crowd,.ad the opportunity to-see over 50 tricked out cars and trucks from
north Florida, south Georgia, and south'Alabama. Owners, such as first place winner Charles Carter of
Dothan, AL (shown below with "Cadillac Joe") said the automobiles are their passion. Carter's 2006 lime
green Dodge Chargers had suicide doors and was hauled on a 2004 Dodge Ram truck painted to same eye-
popping lime green. Car and truck owners also got the opportunity to blast their music through huge
speakers that on the city streets would land with a citation from local police.

Wllh the beautiful spiing weather quickly approaching, many summer plans are being made. One of those plans for many people and families
is to go to amusement parks to -ide rhe Roller Coasters! Roller coasters are amusement park rides that use positive and .neative g forces, hills,
Turns, and slopes to create thrilling rides for the passengers riding in the,cars moving along the tracks.
The first prototype of a roller coaster was invented in the mountains of Russia in the late 1700 s Along the mountain sides, long slopes made
from lumber and covered with ice were constructed, sometimes almost 5 stories high. Stairs were the method to reach the top, and passengers
would then go do.,n the slopes in sleds T hese sleds were later oulfilled with wheels. After the Russian suc:e ss;, new coasters, more like the
modem ones of today, were built in Paris, France. In the 1800s., coasters were staring to pop up in the United States. The Mauch Chunk
Switchback Railway coaster started out as a method of transportation n coal mines. The popularly of the ride with workers caught on, and the
American coaster was born. The 1920's would usher in a Golden Age of roller coasters, starting at New York's Coney Island. The Cyclone, built
in 1927 is the oldest standing roller coaster in the world today After the Great Depression of the 1930's, many roller coaster s .ent out of
operation or were demolished, with none being built to replace them. The opening of the Racer in 1972, at Kings Island Amusement Park in
Cincinnati, Ohio is considered the rebirth of the age of roller coasters! Co f er Cr s Tm

Winter Gala at RFM


The annual Robert F. Munroe Winter Gala was held on Saturday, February
24th at the Sawano Club in Quincy, Florida. Attendees had a fun filled night of
dancing to the sounds of the band Crooked Shooz of Tallahassee. All of the pro-
ceeds from the Gala go directly back into the educational needs of the students at
Munroe. Underwriters of this years event were; Dr. Lucas Stevens Orthodontics,
Envision Credit Union, Gadsden County Chamber of Commerce, Keith Lawson
Company, May Nursery, Premier Bank, State Farm Insurance, and Tri-Eagle
Sales. Pictured are PFM Officers: Debbie Meeks, Sabrina Manley, Harriet Moore,
and Martha Thomas.'


Havana Middle School news

Dr. Norman Jackson presented a remarkable narration of the Tuskegee Airmen to
administrators, faculty, staff, and student body of Havana Middle School on Feb. 23. Dr.
Jackson challenged us to remain focused and to remember that there is nothing impos-
sible. We were thrilled to have in our audience Superintendent Reginal James, Sheriff
Morris Young, Major James Morgan, Sgt. Terron Lindsey, Havana Town Councilman
Vernell Ross, School Board Member Eric Hinson, Sheriffs Department Chaplin Jimmy
Salters, Robert McGriff, Avis Stephens, ESOL Asst. Shavonda Mobley, Lillie Jackson,
Louise Blackburn, Sylvia McClure, and students from Tallavana Christian School. Mrs.
Yolanda Wester, community supporter sang the National Anthem and Sgt. Kerrison and
the East Gadsden High Color Guards participated. We realize that without each of you,
this program would not have been a success.

Chattahoochee Elementary School Black History Program


By Chancie
grade student

On Wed.,
Chattahoocchee
School celebrated


Smith, 6th


Feb. 21,
Elementary
Black History


Month with a special program. It
began at 10:00 AM with music in
the cafeteria. Some of the 6th
grade students sang, "If You Want
to be Somebody", then the 4th
grade Great Center students did a


black history chant. After that,
Ms. Jasmine Sailor performed a
solo, "Praise is what I do." Last, I
was lucky enough to be chosen to
read my own poem, "Freedom"
aloud to the school. One of the 1st


grade teachers, Ms. P. McMillian,
sang a solo that was called "His
eyes are on the Sparrows". Mr. W.
Brown, a teacher who is also a
preacher, gave us his own words
of inspiration. A visiting singing


group called "The Spiritual Four"
performed several selections.
Next, Ms. K. Brown read an
expressive poem that she created
herself called "I Rise". Mr. Lewis,
our principal, gave his closing


remarks and the ceremony ended
with everybody in the audience
singing "Lift Every Voice and
Sing", the Negro National
Anthem. We had a real good
time!

rThe Terror Season


Terror. You know the feeling. You felt
it as a child, when late at night, there
was a strange and eerie noise outside
your window. Like a menacing mist, it
crept across Danvers, Massachusetts
early in the spring of 1692 and stayed
all summer. It was 1692, and Danvers
was called Salem Village.

At any moment, the pent up terror
could be unleashed on an unsuspect-
ing resident. Wourd a neighbor accuse
them of being a witch? If so, what
would happen? Would they hang, like
Bridget Bishop? Was one of their


~O~J ~ V~d~k j~he


neighbors a witch? How could they tell? It
was mass hysteria; and it just kept getting
worse.

Accompanying the Puritans who migrated to
America was their absolute belief in witches
and their evil powers. Common in England,
witches were people who entered into a pact
with the devil in return for receiving powers to
do evil.. For centuries, their existence had been
unquestioned.

People in Salem knew that Thomas Putnam,
the village's largest landowner and its most
prominent citizen, was quick to use the courts
against his perceived
rivals and enemies
Frequently. he sought
their help to extend
his holdings. or have
his enemies ban-
S shed from the
village

In the spring of 1692,
Putnam wvas the first
to strike

named Tituba as
well as residents
Sarah Osborne. and


?ri.. LV i..t g ir.g Arii A rr


Sarah Goode of bewitching his daughter Anne and
Reverend Samuel Paris's daughter, Elizabeth.
Accusations mushroomed, with people accusing
neighbors they had
known for years.
Eventually, authorities
arrested more than one
hundred people. Salem
courts convicted forty-
two of practicing witch-
craft, and executed twen-
ty. Of those convicted,
thirty-seven were women
under the age of twenty. Increase Mather. Through the
Was it a coincidence? Library of Congress.


Governor William Phips finally halted the madness
in October but only after Increase Mathers,the
President of Harvard College and Thomas Brattle, a
prominent Bostonian and church leader, spoke out
forcefully against them. The following spring, he
pardoned the remainder of those convicted, and
twelve of the jurors signed and published a
Declaration of Regret. It was over.

Were the Salem trials really about protecting
soccer', from evil forces, or was it simply
old-fashioned jealousy, greed and hate?
Take the journey. Then, you can decide.
