City takes a look at impact fees



Workshop brings discussion about development, consequences


by ALICE DU PONT
Tinmes Editor
In a special workshop, the Quincy
City Commission took a look at
development impact fees as well as the
process for development review..
Currently, the city of Quincy has no
impact fees nor is there a charge for
development review. Both are intended
to lessen the impact new development
has on the public.
"Without impact fees, the city bears


the cost of development," said Planning
Director Timmin Fedora.
He said that the money collected will
be used for sewer and roads from
commerical development, and for
parks, recreation, etc. from residential
fees.
In establishing the impact fee
structure, Fedora said, the fee is
charged to maintain the current.level of
service, identify the demand for facility
expansion and calculate the city's cost
for providing those facilities.


But before any fee can be levied, the
categories of impact fees must be
defined. So far, the. planning
department has identified the following
categories: parks and recreation, fire
and rescue, police protection, public
facilities, roadways, and water and
sewer..
The second part of the workshop
concerned the development review fee
and the procedure.. Commissioners
were informed that.currently developers
pay nothing to have their developments


reviewed. It falls on the shoulders of
the city's staff and not the developer.
Under consideration is a $750
concurrency fee to to be charged,to all
developers if the commissioners accept
the staffs recommendation.
"I'm not in favor of these impact fees
at all," said Commissioner Derrick
Elias.
Commissioner Finley Cook said
developers pay the fees else where and
they should have to pay them in
Quincy.

workshop


agenda


by LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor
At a Gadsden County School Board workshop.
Tuesday night, the costs and benefits of alternative
education in the county were debated, with one local
school employee calling Carter-Parramore Academy a
warehouse for students who exhibited behavioral and
disciplinary problems in mainstream schools.
"This is too sterile a setting for what I want to talk
about," said Anthony Thomas, a Carter-Parramore
Academy employee. "You are controlling, keeping out
what you don't want in. CPA is a useful place it's
taking problem students away from other schools and
warehousing them in another place .... we need help
out at Carter-Parramore. If you're really interested in
teaching those kids, put some money and some
teachers out there."
Superintendent of Schools Reginald James proposes
a restructuring of the educational alternative and
dropout prevention -programs. at Carter-Parramore,
which houses four different educational programs for
students who have special needs in the areas of
discipline, learning alternatives, teenage parenting and
emotional and/or mental well being.
Carter-Parramore Academy offers alternative
education to students who have been expelled for non-
zero tolerance disciplinary issues; Gadsden Central
Academy caters to students with disabilities in need of
an intensive behavior program who have been expelled
and alternatively placed in the program, the Teenage

Scholarship

established at

by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
Before Herman Moore died
last year, he and Bernard Clark
and Bernard Lewis often talked
about the three local agriculture-
oriented families establishing a
scholarship. The scholarship,
they felt, should go to student
who participated in the annual Herre
West Florida Livestock Herman Moore
Association Show and Sale.
Moore did not live to see it, but last week, a three
family scholarship was established during the 63rd
annual show and sale. Called the CLM Scholarships
first recipient will be announced in 2008.

Shirley Green Knight doesn't feel at all like
she's made history. And so, in Women's History,
Month, she had to be reminded that she has made
history as the first woman and the first African-
American to be elected Supervisor of Elections
in Gadsden County.
Knight didn't start out trying to make history.
The job she now holds, she said, is a direct result
of the first and only job she ever held as an adult.
She was an employee in the Supervisor of
Elections office for 18 years before she ran for
office and won the first time as a political
candidate.
"I grew up like a lot of people around here. We
went to school, had Saturday chores, took piano'
lessons, went to church and worked in the
tobacco fields," she said. The middle child of


five children born to Richard Green (now
deceased) and Bessie Kenon Green, Knight is the
product of a loving and supportive family who
recalls having a great childhood. The family
lived in the Robertsville Community north of
Quincy.
"I was an average child growing up in he 1960s
and 70s. My sisters Betty, Margaret, Wanda and
I were all daddy's girls and we spent a lot of time
in the garden 'with him picking peas and
tomatoes. Then we would go in the house and
can them," she said. She also has a brother,
Bernard.
In high school she dated Arzie Knight. The pair
married after they graduated in 1973 and when
he joined the Army she went too. Knight said she
enjoyed' the travel and the experiences she
gained. "We always knew we were coming back

Taylor to seek re-election


I am Sherrie Taylor, Mayor of
the City of Quincy, and I am
announcing my candidacy for
re-election.
I am a native of Gadsden
County and have lived most of
my life in the City of Quincy.
First, I want to thank you for
allowing me to serve as your
city commissioner and Mayor
for the past three years.
With your support, we've made
the following accomplishments:
*Secured $1 million dollars in
grant funds for housing and
housing renovations.
*Rehabilitated and remodeled
17 homes.
*Restructed city's
management.
*Opened three new
neighborhood parks in Sunset


Acres, Bobby
Nealy
Complex and
the new (golf)
driving range.
*Instituted
new
accountability
procedures for
the city's
finance department.
*Improved employee morale.
*New businesses located in
Quincy during my tenure: CVS
Pharmacy, Walgreens, Altell,
Arbor Crest Apartment,
Magnolia Forest, Premiere
Bank, Focus Credit Union, new
Social Security Office.
There is still work to be done
and with your help, I plan to:
*Lower utility bills


*Increase home ownership
*Recruit businesses that can
offer better jobs with benefits.
*Rehabilitate and remodel
more homes
*Improve communications
through our own Internet, cable
(and soon to be) telephone

a member of Delta Sigma Theta
Sorority.
I need your support, because
together we can improve the
standard of living for all of us. I
am asking for your support. By
voting for me on April 24th, we
can move our community
forward together.
"Taylor-made to get the job
done."


Banks to run for city post


I, Willie Earl Banks, would like
to announce my candidacy for
City Commissioner, District 4.
Born and raised in Gadsden
County, I am aware of the needs
within your city. I am married to
Sandra Fields Banks for 37 years
and have three children: Anisha,
Shana, and Earl Jr. and'have five
grandchildren. I am a member of
St. Hebron A.M.E. Church where
I serve as Steward Pro-Tem. I am
also involved in many
organizations. I received my
formal education in the Gadsden
County public school system and
furthered my education at Florida
A & M University receiving a
B.S. degree in Industiral Arts and


a Masters in
Industrial
Education.
I've worked
for the City of
Quincy for 23
years; of these,
3 were as the
Director of
Housing, 8
were as the Director of the Public
Works Department and 6 were as
the City Manager. Working for
the City of Quincy afforded me a
view of the inner workings of
city government and the needs of
the people. I have accomplished
many things while serving in
these positions.


Although I have several goals I
would like to accomplish as City
Commissioner, my main goals
are "Putting People First",
addressing the issues in our
community and working together
to make our community a
"Premier City".
I assure you, I am dedicated,
honest, and fair. I am the voice
behind the people. I ask for your
support by voting for me on
April 24 for City Commissioner,
District 4. A vote for me is a vote
for the people.

Grant said that Moore was a

provided the pigs each year for the
Pig Scramble," Grant said.
The three men, said Grant, have
been unwavering supporters of the
show and sale and of the young
participants. "They were always
available to give them tips and
advice on how best to show and
groom their animals," he said.

'Center is used to educate pre-K
:students of teenage parents enrolled
.in the school district and the Hope
:Academy is for students who have
:been expelled and alternatively
:placed for committing zero
'tolerance infractions or who need
.very close supervision for
:behavioral reason.
I In his restructuring proposal,
;James notes the number of
.expulsions has been "on the rise
:annually as well as the number of
:disciplinary infractions on the
.various school campuses. An
;informal review has revealed
'several factors contributing to the


problem. The data shows a
significant number of students who
are over age for their grade
assignment because of a lack in
success in the classroom, which
resulted in multiple retentions over
time. The problem is a contributing
factor to the high number of
students who drop out of secondary
school; many of which do not
continue their education in another
setting even as adults."
Several at Tuesday's workshop
acknowledged there are behavioral
problems among the academy's
students that at times put teachers in
danger, and that some students stay
for relatively long periods of time.


Gadsden County Commissioner
Brenda Holt told board members
she'd been asked by teachers in her
district to request metal detectors be
placed in the academy.
School Board member Charlie
Frost said some Carter-Parramore
students are progressing slowly or
not at all.
"I know some kids in middle
school who could register for
selective service," School Board
member Charlie Frost said. "My
concern is, are these kids going to
float on, or are we going to work
from both ends to move them on
through, or is enrollment going to
remain at 320?"


Because a number of staff at
Carter Parramore work in a dropout
prevention capacity but are not
certified as such, they are
technically working out-of-field.
That can affect the school district's
budget several ways, including the
amount of full-time equivalency
funding it gets per student.
Carter-Parramore Principal Willie
Green said changing problem
behaviors takes time and that he
was unwilling to give up on a
student who didn't fall into line
right away.
"We've got to change the kids
behavior-wise, we've got to change
them academically and we've got to

mind and they include true icons of
the county's history. "There was a
man named Sam Scott who came in
here a lot, he knew so much. Mr.
Witt Campbell was the same way
and so was Mrs. (Vivian) Kelly,"
she said.
In 2000 Hutchinson decided not
to seek re-election and encouraged
*Knight to give it a try. The rest, as
they say, is history.
As rewarding as her job is, it can
also be quite trying. "There are
times when it's difficult to get a
candidate to understand that there
are no rules for them and rules for
others. I advise them all on what is


legal and propel;" she said.
The one thing that she said she
never wants is for a candidate or a
citizen to feel they have been
treated unfairly or that their rights
have been compromised.
And in this era of hanging chads,
pregnant chads, contested elections,
numerous recounts, and court
battles, none of the elections Knight
has overseen have ever been called
into question. Democrats,
Republicans, and those with no
party affiliation have no complaints
about Knight or her job
performance.
Then there are the light moments.

Helms pointed out parents have a
responsibility as well. Parents of
Carter-Parramore students are asked
to sign a contract committing to
following school guidelines.
"If a parent doesn't follow through
on their end ... what I'm saying is,

In the dark about this


Daylight Savings Time thing


I don't like Daylight Savings Time.
It's one of those things that you either
love or hate or you just go with it, because
there isn't anything you can do about it
anyway.
One reason I don't care for it is because it
disrupts my routine. It's going to take at
least two weeks for my inside (body) clock
to adjust to my (workday) outside clock.
For instance, Monday afternoon I picked
up the telephone to make a call only to
realize that it's not 4:30 p.m. but 5:30 p.m.
and the person I need to speak with is long
gone. I went by another office to pick up a
report, and you guessed it, the place was
locked down tight.
I could only kick myself for not getting
with the program.


With Daylight Savings Time, it seems as
if there is too much time left over the end
of the day. Kids are out playing later and
later. A woman on television the other day
said she's expecting trouble this week
getting her little ones inside for homework,
supper, bath, and bedtime considering the
sun is still high in the sky. It's hard to take
a 8 o'clock bedtime seriously when the sun
isn't even close to setting.
Another reason is that I'm really not all
that fond of daylight. I prefer a darkened
room with blinds drawn anyday over one
full of sunlight. I would gladly spend most
of my time in a cave if it came to that.
Daylight Savings Times may be
welcomed by some people, but I can do
without it.


It is Tuesday morning and even on my
third office cup of coffee and fifth jolt of
java for the day so far, I have no viable
column ideas.
I'm not outraged at any particular
government entity, although I'm sure I
Should be. The Midway City Council
kept its last meeting fairly quiet and
orderly and actually finished business at a
reasonable hour.
Gretna's last board meeting.went
without outrageousness there was
potential, with a vote to extend
commissioners' terms to four years, but
nobody really put up any opposition. It
was a done deal in slightly over an hour.
Havana Town Council meetings are
ALWAYS orderly, never controversial
(during my brief tenure at the Gadsden
County Times) and they meet in the
morning. What's not to like?
War in Iraq makes me mad, but all
that does is raise my blood pressure.
Don't get me wrong I support our
troops, just not the hell they and their
families are currently enduring. (And yes,
it IS my fault the current.administration is
in office I was in the hospital on
election day 2004. Sory, guys.)
I considered a column on malapropisms
I've committed through the years, but will
only confess to one, and it was
committed while singing along to the
circa-'70s Atlanta Rhythym Section song,
"I Am So Into You."
(Public acknowledgement that not only
was I alive in the '70s, I was old enough
to sing along to the radio. But just
barely.)
Other people who were alive in the '70s
may remember the song "I am so into
yooouuuu/I can't get to nothing' else,
whomp ba da da da ba da, whomp ba da
da da ba da, I am so-ho into you....."
Anyway. There's a line in the song that
goes, "There was voodoo in the vibe,"

We didn't have a clue about St. Patrick's

A'nd it \as rather ironic in that most of us
had some Irish blood pumping through us.
Mother was a Kennedy. The O'Bannon's
lived out on the Hinkledale Road. Mr.
Kirkpatrick had about twenty grandkids. Half
the town had descendents that migrated to
America when a potato famine in Ireland
forced hundreds of thousands to seek their
fortune (and a hot meal) someplace else.
But back in 1959 we weren't caught up in
nationalities, culturalpractices or place of'
origin. We kept score by who could run the
fastest. Or hold their breath underwater the
longest. Or hit Buddy Wiggleton's curveball.
Or spit the closet to that crack in the sidewalk
in front of Woodrow Kennon's Grocery Store.
We didn't know people had roots. If you
talked "normal" and hadn't moved in recently
from Paducah we figured you were alright.
We didn't know the Blarney Stone from a
crabapple! Yogi was telling us about the
green paint. "It's a tradition. Like that little
Leprechaun person."
"Why green?"
We were only in the seventh grade but we
were growing up. Or trying to! We had no
television or high speed internet. Aside from
the Grit-magazine we didn't see many
newspapers. Really, we had very little
connection to the outside world. But you
couldn't just "sell us" anything like we were
back in the third grade! We weren't about to
blindly, and childishly, accept anything
anybody told us anymore.
Yogi kinda "squinced" up his face in deep
thought. 'There's a lot of green leaves in
Ireland, Like them shamrock things..... The
Leprechauns were small and shy and so they
naturally 'needed to blend in with the
surroundings. They painted their faces green
and put on tiny little green suits to
camouflage themselves."
It made perfectly good sense to me.
"Let's paint something gieen." Pam was
always ready. -
"We need to wait until the 17th; that is St.
Patrick's Day."
"Why did those little green men pick the
17th?"
Yogi "squinced" some more. "Do I look
like an encyclopedia? I reckon it was Patrick's
birthday!"
"What are we going to paint?" Pam also had
a one track mind.
Did I.mention it was a rather small town?
And not only did we not have TVs, we didn't
have an arcade, roller derby, skating rink,
shooting gallery, Woolworth's, A & W Root
Beer or a partridge in a pear tree.
We had to make up our own fun. So when
Pam suggested we celebrate St. Patrick's Day
by painting something green, we went to
scrounging around for a little paint and a
building to use it on!
Yogi's dad worked for the city. The paint
was a snap. Except it wasn't exactly the Kelly
green we've since learned that those little
Leprechauns use. It was two half-cans of ball
park green left over from fixing up the little
league dugouts. Yogi couldn't get the key. We
managed to slide through the big double
doors in the back.
We were laughing and running around
behind Bailey Moore Wrinkle's Hardware


hunched over so we wouldn't be detected
'when Ricky suggested, "How about Wayne
Register's Little Store. It's out of town enough
that no one will see us."
Mr. Register farmed mostly and his wife ran
a little store out by the sawmill. She would
scold you like "an old maid school nanny" if
you loitered around the drink box opening
your baseball cards. We figured we could
celebrate with St. Patrick and dispense with a
little retribution at the same time.
We started with the front wall. And we had
paint left over. We painted the doors, the
porch, the rails and the front steps. And we
had paint left over. We were pondering on
whether we had enough paint to find another
building when one of Mr. Register's heifers
strolled around the corer.
Folks, this is where the evening gets a little
hazy. I know for dead certain sure I wasn't for
painting no cow. I guarantee that! But darn it,
before I could voice my protest or even bring
it up for discussion Pam or her good friend
Jane or Yogi or Ricky or the ghost man
started slapping a coat of green all over that
cow.
I don't know who found the wire. Or the
Epsom salts. I do remember some of the
group hanging on for dear life as Ricky pried
a couple of good doses of salts down the
cow's throat. We wired the porch as tight as a
coral and left the green cow, in her new green
house, to watch the sun come up on St.
Patrick's Day.
We laughed all the way home. As Yogi
said, "This is one of our best ones."
I wasn't so sure. Mrs. Register didn't seem
to be one you'd want to truck with. We all
took a sacred oath that we would never tell as
we split for our homes.
As it turned out Mrs. Register was the least
of my worries. I dreamed that night of green
cows hemming me up in that little box
canyon out by the clay pits. They were
stampeding right'over me......
I awoke with a start---and it wasn't green
cows staring me down, it was my Father!
And he was green.....with anger! He pulled
me out of that bed like I was a feather. I'm
trying to get fully awake, I'm amazed that he
already knows it was me, it ain't hardly
daylight, I'm wondering if I can blame this
one on Leon when Daddy goes to whipping
me.
He whipped me for a while! He didn't say a
word. He didn't attempt to ascertain the
depths of my involvement. He skipped that
"innocent until proven guilty" part. He didn't
seem to care where the paint came from or
how the Register Store got selected. He
wouldn't even listen when I was screaming,
"It was all Pam, Jane, Ricky and Yogi's idea!"
He whipped me until his arms gave out. As
I melted to the floor he said, "Son, you don't
fool around with another man's cow."
Leon said later the green paint all over my
shirt, jeans and shoes didn't help my case.
Everyone for miles around marveled at the
mess on Mr. Register's porch. It wasn't as
much fun cleaning it up as it was dishing it
out! Plus, I was grounded for six years! And
folks, here's the real crime, at the time this
took place, I didn't even know what St.
Patrick's Day was......
Respectfully,
Kes


which I have for years translated to
Leslie-speak, making it "voodoo in the
valley." Well, why not? I was so young -
I did mention I was a mere child in the
'70s, yes? that I sort of missed the
concept of the whole vibe thing, but
voodoo in the valley that made sense.
There have been many other
misinterpreted song lyrics which I will
not memorialize here, thank you very
much. But focusing on just one does not
an entire column make.
I have written about spring, and
daylight saving time, give or take 400
words, and that it's all good! It's great! I
love it! Wahoo!
My son does incredibly cute things on a
daily basis and several startling ones, but
he got a spot here not too long ago so I
will use great restraint and not elaborate
on his vivid imagination or his angelic
singing voice. OK, the jello-smeared-on-
the-TV thing was less than angelic. We
had an earnest discussion about the
difference between jello, fingerpaint and
appropriate art settings. We touched on
the statistically-proven fact that jello on a
television can make Bugs Bunny go bye-
bye for good.
What he learned from that talk was how
to get me to go from 0-60 on the irritation
scale in record time and that although I
appreciate his artistic expressions I am
philosophically opposed to the ones with
the potential to end in the electrocution of
regularly-used electrical appliances. Or
the people who regularly use them.
Anyway, I'm stymied.
It would appear I am either a) semi-
coiitent, b) comatose, c) cornered by a
snarling writer's block beast or d) all of
the above.
I choose to blame the recent lunar
eclipse, which I didn't see, but know was
out there.
That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

Christian Education of Children



Paul F. Joyner, Ph. D.

At a time in life when a child
cannot select his/her clothes, how
can he choose to give his/her
heart to Christ? This question is
paramount in the mind of the
Christian educator.
The moralistic approach to Christian education
is expressed in the advocation that a child should
be reared in such a manner as to know only what
it is to be a Christian. The overzealous
evangelical approach is depicted in the innocent
infant singing, "My heart was black with sin..."
before he/she is cognizant of the significance of
man's sinfulness.
It is my opinion that the proper approach to
Christian education of children is the Biblical
approach. The Scriptures clearly admonish
parents to provide the proper spiritual context in
which the child can meaningfully relate to them
and on the basis of that relationship -
meaningfully relate to God. Is it not true that a
child's attitude toward his parents will be his
attitude toward God?
In the "Shema" Deuteronomy 6:4-9, the
Hebrews were emphatically directed ofJehovah
to instruct their children in the ways of the Lord
- in the context of the family and incidental life
situations. This pattern of parental instruction
permeates God's Word.
The Bible presents the home as the primary
setting of Christian education and indicates that
the younger years are crucial. Christian
education in a Christian School should be an
extension of the home training. However, when
the child witnesses lying, cheating, stealing,
fighting, etc. within the home, why should it
seem unreasonable if the child questions the
validity of the Christian faith?
I believe that God will hold the father and
mother accountable wlio neglect to care for the
spiritual welfare of the children He has given
them.


Voodoo in the valley


By all accounts, that bear stopped
traffic on Highway 12 last
Wednesday, and when an event
stops traffic out near the Gadsden/
Liberty county lines, that's news
until you, the readers, tell us
different.
We're listening, even to your
emails.

ai


The


'bear'


facts

by Eddie Ledbetter, General
Manager
Over the past week, we've
received a couple of emails here at
the Times questioning our news
judgment in light of the "dead bear"
photo we ran at the top of Page. 1 in
last week's edition.
For those who may have missed
the story, a large black bear was
struck by a vehicle on Highway 12
last Wednesday morning near the
Liberty County line. Our sports
editor, Joe Ferolito, happened onto
the scene and called the office to let
us know we had a potential story. A
couple of hours later, we did, and in
this age of digital cameras, several
people who drove up on the scene
were able to get pictures and were
willing to offer them to us for
publication.
As it happened, Traci Sansom
was kind enough to drive straight to
the office and let us download and
look at the photos she had taken at
the scene. Meanwhile, News Editor
Leslie Roberts was working the
phones talking to anyone she could
find who had been there, and as it
turns out, at least one resident in the
area was familiar with the bear,
having seen him on the road several
times in the
past.
A bear
response
agent was sent
to collect the _
carcass, and ',
he talked to us
for the sto:.
telling us that
a vehicle collision with a bear in
Gadsden County is unusual, but
occurring with more and more
frequency each year.
So we chose a photo, one
including the young man for scale
(that was a big black bear), Leslie
wrote the story, and we went to
press, albeit a little late due to the
event occurring on the morning that
is our deadline to get the Times to
our printer, the Post-Searchlight in
Bainbridge.
And that story and photo
prorfpted the e-mails, which
prompted this column.
The emails weren't particularly
nasty or mean-spirited, but they did
include the words "disturbing" and
"disgusting" when offering
opinions on the photo in particular.
There was a demand for me to
resign (sorry, "Care Bear," not over
this, I won't) and another apparently
well-thought-out and respectful
email that, while accusing us of
sensationalism, did make the point
that background information, such
as the plight of black bears and
increasing traffic intersecting, was
missing from the article.
And he or she was correct (again,
no name accompanying the typed
words); that would have made for a
much better read and probably lent
more relevance to the story and
photo.
But this happened on the morning
we went to press, and I replied to
the email in an attempt to explain
that. There just wasn't time to
research that, although we may do a
follow-up in a future edition. Given
the comments of the bear response
agent, it seems that development is
bringing us into what has been the
habitat of the bears, and if that
creates a conflict for either species,
we should probably look into it as
journalists.
Having said that, I do understand
how that photo may have offended
some readers. The odd thing is that
everyone involved in the writing
and publication of the story and
photo loves animals as much as the
folks who emailed their concerns.
You'll have to trust me on that, but
it's the truth.
We have a job to do, and
sometimes it's more than calling
your elected officials onto the
carpet, or showing you a mug shot
of the last suspect who tried to
bring drugs into our community via
I-10. Sometimes it's not about life
or death; it's just about bringing you
the interesting things that happen
around you right here in Gadsden
County.

GATORS OVERALL NUMBER 1
The NCAA Men's Basketball
Tournament selection committee cet-
tainl) didn't haru Florida chances of
leaching the Final Four again.
The bracket tile put them in \\as just
fine.
They get Jackson State fiist in
Friday's opening round at New, Oileans
and get to play the Purdue-Anzona m in-
ner in the second round on Sundal tf
they get b. Jackson State as expected.
Purdue and Arizona ha\c irepectable
programs but aren't as good tils yeal as
they ha\e been in the past.
Anything can happen but I think
Flotida can win both thel games in the
Cresent City and head for St. Louis next
week end.Joinine them in the MNid\est
Regional will be Mal land, LUNLV, and


Notne Dame, or at least that's v, hat I pre-
dict.
I al.o feel that Kansas. Virginia Tech.
Pittsburgh, and Gonzaga will reach the
\\est Reional in San Jose.
The East Regional in East
Rutherfoid \ill see North Carohna.
Texas, Geoigetown. and George
Washington in attendance. The South
Regional in San Antonio will have Ohio
State, Tennessee, Louistille. and
Memphis in it.
In tihs her's s bracket Texas has the
most teams \with 5. Indiana. 'Vuginia.
Ohio, and NorIh Carolina have 4 each.
FAMUL MEN. FSU MEN AND
WOMEN ALL HAVE TOURNA-
MENT DATES
Head coach Mike Gillespie has led
his FAMU mnen's basketball team back


into the NC.LA Tournament for the sec-
ond time. Unfortunately Gillespie's
bunch lost to Niagara Tuesdac nicht in a
plans in ame, ending the Rattlers' bnef
tournament ruln and their season.
The FSU Women's team \ ill travel
to Stanford for an opening round game
'.\th Old Dominion Saturday in the
Women's NCAA Tournament. The
Lad\ Noles get either host Stanfoid ot
Idaho State on Monday it they suri-e
that game.
The FSLI men', team is in the NIT
again. One more \\in this Neai would
ha,.e probably put them in the NCAA
Tournament but it just didn't happen
The\ are the number 2 seed in the
NIT and defeated Toledo Tuesday night
to advance to the second round against
Michigan on Thursday at home.


Patel, Watson lead Munroe


EGHS players sign


Parth Patel got the win and
Cody Watson a save helping the
Munroe Bobcats win a 7-2 base-
ball game over Northside
,Christian School of Dothan last
VFriday night.Patel pitched the
first 4 2/3 innings and struck out
seven. Watson came in, pitched
Munroe out of a 5th inning jam'
and went on to fan 5 in 2 1/3
innings. Ben Young led the
Bobcat offensive effort with 3


hits and 3 r.b.i.'s. Clay .Kramm
had 2 hits and scored a pair of
runs.
The win was Patel's 2nd of the
year as well as Munroe's 2nd.
The Bobcats will not play again
until March 24 when they host
Citizen's Christian in a 1 pm
game.
Todd Pierce is the head coach
at Munroe and he feels his young
team is progressing. "We have


only 3 juniors." Pierce says. "The
rest are underclassmen."
"But I feel we're improving.
We just need to cut down on the
gap between errors we are mak-
ing and hits we are not getting."
Pierce continues. "I think we're
doing that and we'll have a pretty
good year the rest of the way."
Jamie Holcomb and Tommy
Young are assisting Pierce in his
first year as head coach.


Munroe tennis team downs Florida High;

softball team loses to Aucilla Christian


. The Munroe tennis team dom-
inated Florida High on Thursday

singles matches and both doubles
matches. The singles matches
were all won by impressive
scores with Meg Summerford,

like a Warrior on Thursday at
Aucilla Christian. The Lady Cats

mention in the state rankings for
Class A softball. Unfortunately,
Aucilla did not care and proceed-
ed to pound out 17 hits for a con-
vincing District 3 win 16-4.
Malorie McKinnon took the loss
from the mound evening out her
record at 3-3. Kaitlyn Rentz and
Kristen Allen did their part at the
plate but got very little support-
ing help through the rest of the
lineup. Both girls went 2 for 3.
Allen had two runs batted in and
Rentz one. The winning pitcher
for Aucilla was Brittany
Saunders. She struck out four
while giving up five hits.

picked up their 10th win of the
season with an close 3-2 win over
visiting Maranatha Christian of
Tallahassee. Seventh grader
Haleigh Corbally got her'4th win

and walking none. She also gave
up only three hits. Rentz and

Seminole Ramlins


My goodness how the deep woods
has come to life, the sweet smell of the
wild yeller Jasmine, the wild Plum and
the Crabapple just makes for a fine walk
in the woods. And just think in bout 60
to 90 days, vine ripe tomatoes.
This has been a week for the Bass,
they have come up shallow to a pre-
spawn day or two & then straight on to
the beds. There is bedding fish in most
every part of the lake. There seems to be
no end to them. One boat reported a 6
lb. male Bass with eyes as red as blood.
One sand bar produced 20 Bass in
just one afternoon. One lady near old as
me caught her first Bass ever. Now she's
ruint for life, her husband will not be
able fish with the boys no more.
12 year old Mathew Contrell of
MacClenny, FL took a 6 lbs. Bass off the
gas dock. You should have seen his
face. He was in the Baker Co. Bass
Club with his dad.
Tom Ridley of the Valdosta Bass
Club took their Big Fish a four
pounder.
The Butler Co. Greenville, AL club
had a nice catch of fish the first day but
failed the second.
The Niceville, FL club, John


Langston & Jerry Hill had 5 fish at 24
lbs. to wind the 2 day event.
The Beaches Bass Club .of
Jacksohville Beach had a 4 fish limit at
13.2. lbs. with a 5 pounder as Big Fish.
That shows how good the Bass Fishen is
here on the lake.
Now for the pole fishermen, there
had been a lot of Bream and
Shellcrackers taken on worms this week
in many different places. One don't
have to look too hard to find a gathering.
Then the Perch and Catfish has been
a good thing. this week. Jigs and
Minnows taken Perch like mad. Jigs
mostly. One person took a limit 3 days
on Jigs. Lots of'folks taken 15 to 20 a
trip.
For those that like to know, the Big
FLW this weekend on Lake Eufalla had
4 boats running 2 hours each way to
Lake Seminole to fish bedding Bass. It
will be interesting to know how they
make out Sunday afternoon, by the way,
Dogwood is in full bloom, top water
time.
The picture is of Matthew Contrell of
MadClenny, FL with his 6 lb. Bass he
caught off the gas dock at Wingates.

CRA board votes against:


county representative


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

If the Board of County
Commissioners wanted someone
to sit on the Community
Redevelopment Agency (CRA)
.Board for the City of Quincy, it's
not going to happen.
Tuesday afternoon the Quincy
City Commission, sitting as the
CRA Board, voted not to allow
any official representation from
the county on the board. The
issue of the county having a
"presence" on the board was one
that had been under discussion
several months during the joint
county/city meetings.
Only two cities in the county,
Quincy and Havana, have CRAs.


This year, Quincy will receive
about $300,000 in CRA fund(.
The money is derived from a spd-
cial taxing district that allows a
certain portion of taxes paid to
the county to be carved out for
the CRA.
The funds are to be used to
help with upgrades in the CRA
district. The county has asked for
stricter accountability of CRA
funds or to at least know how the
money is being spent.
In other matters, Charles
Hayes CRA director said he
would have a report for the boaid
ready for the April meeting ondthe
impact from the proposed proper-
ty tax reforms now under consid-
eration in the state legislature.

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

Walls


Could Talk'


Historic McFarlin House to be featured on HGTV


by LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor
Tina and Richard Fauble were
in the entryway of their stately,
historic bed and breakfast when
a knock came at the door.
"Hi, I'm Sherry Elliot, the
appraiser. Whoa this is a
beautiful place. What an
entrance, huh?"
"Hi, I'm Tina, and this is my
husband Richard oh, wait,"
Mrs. Fauble said.
Take two. High Noon
Productions cameraman Jim
O'Holleran readied for the redo
as producer Kathleen Buland
looked on. The Colorado-based
company was at the McFarlin
House in Quincy Monday to
film an episode of "If Walls
Could Talk" for HGTV.
The appraiser stepped back
onto the front porch and
knocked on the door again.
"Hi, I'm Sherry Elliot. I'm the
appraiser."
"I'm Tina. This is my
husband, Richard oh, sorry,"
Mrs. Fauble said, forgetting not .
to turn away from the camera.
By take five, the production
team was getting much closer
to what it wanted.
"Hi, I'm Sherry Elliott, the
appraiser."
"Nice to meet you. I'm Tina
and this is my husband,
Richard," Mrs. Fauble said.
"Great place looks
spectacular from the outside
but even better from the inside.
Mind if I take a look around?"
"Come on in," Mrs. Fauble
said.
By the eighth take, folks were
turning and talking and that
part of the shooting was done.
High Noon Production
researcher Jenna Friederich
discovered the McFarlin House
online and saw it as a place that
would work perfectly as a
featured location for "If Walls


Could Talk."
"The research contacted me-
and said she had seen the
(McFarlin) website," Buland
said. "It's sort of a perfect story
for 'If Walls Could Talk.' When
the owners renovated the attic
to be guest rooms, they found
all these links to the past under
the floor boards."
Richard, 43, and Tina Fauble,
44, moved into the McFarlin
House in March, 1994.
It was in deplorable shape.
Living in Springhill at the
time and raising two young
children, they were looking for
an affordable home to


renovate. They looked first in
Jacksonville and Tallahassee.
But Richard was convinced
the first time he set eyes on the
McFarlin House, which sits on
the corner of King Street and
North Love Avenue, that it was
the house for them; other
family members took a bit
more convincing.
"Renovating is a family
tradition for me. When we
started on this house, my
grandfather was 75, my mom
was 45 and I was 28," he said.
"I was in the corporate world,
in merchandising and buying,
and wanted to get out. We


looked at the cost of living in Anna Alma Roberts Lester

and breakfast
looks as good as
or better than when it was built
in 1895 by prominent tobacco
farmer John McFarlin. With 24
rooms; 11 bathrooms and a
carriage house, it's the epitome
of Victorian craftmanship, with
hand-carved woodwork
throughout and Italian
tile in the bathrooms
and kitchen.
"It was touch
and go," Mr
Fauble said. "It
was a lot of time
and a lot of
money. But this
house is a
masterpiece, and
it's a tribute to my
family, what they are
and what they did."
McFarlin and Elise N
his wife, Elise,
raised three
children in the home, which
boasts 11,000 square feet and is
four stories tall.
The house has a wraparound
front porch, seven fireplaces
throughout, with four of the
downstairs handmade mantels
shipped from France, and
stained-glass windows
sprinkled around the house.

process of doing
that, they
discovered bits and pieces of
the lives of previous owners
buried under the attic
floorboards: A wedding
invitation to John and Elise
McFarlin's daughter's wedding;
a copy of Hamlet from Old
Quincy High School,
inscribed by John
McFarlin and
dated Nov. 21,
1912; old dolls
arid toys, song
books, and a
program from
the, 1933
inauguration of
Florida Gov.
David Sholtz.
Having a
production crew onsite

"overwhelming," Mr. Fauble
said, adding,
"It's kind of fun. And we're
thankful. We're really hoping it
gives more exposure to what
the possibilities are in Quincy."
The air date for the show has
not yet been set but will likely
be around six months from
now.


Above, photos of past McFarlin residents and family members line the
back stairway of the McFarlin Bed and Breakfast for visitors to view
as they use the stairs. Below, Richard and Tina Fauble interview with
a production team from High Noon Production while camera man
Jim O'Holleran films them. The production company was in Quincy
Monday to film a segment on the McFarlin House for the HGTV
series, "If Walls Could Talk." Right, this guestroom houses a stylish
clawfoot tub in one corner with period paintings hanging above it.

Saint Patrick's Day is celebrated every year on March 17th.
This holiday celebrates the memory and life of Ireland's patron
saint, Saint Patrick. In 1762 the first Saint Patrick's Day parade

There is also a modern tradition in Dublin, Ireland to hold a large
parade and celebration on this holiday. Other St. Patrick's Day
traditions include wearing green, or carrying a horseshoe for
good luck. This tradition originated when horseshoes became a
standard gift to newlyweds to be. Among other popular legends
is the shamrock, or four leaf clovers, believed to bring good luck
to anyone that finds one, and the leprechaun and his pot of gold,
Saint Patridc or PaIriciLIS was born in Britain n ihe early 400's
A.D. as Mae vrn Succat. As a young man he was kidnapped and
taken to Ireland where he was forced into slavery. According to his own autobiography, The Confessio, he escaped at age twenty two. It was at this time that he entered the
I monastery and :ook he name Palric:;us After he left the noonaslery he returned to Ireland as a missionary. Upon his arrival in Ireland, he was aided by a man named Dichiu,
who would also become a saint. He at first encountered some conflict ,with the local authority, The High King of Tare, but later came to an agreement with the king and was
i allowed to freely spread his message of Christianity. Eventually almost all of Ireland would convert from the Druid paganism to Christianity. For this reason Patricius was made
" a saint. Legend has it that Saint Patrick died on March 17th, 493 A.D. It was for this reason that March 17th was marked as the religious holiday honoring Saint Patrick.

school's audience with a Black
History program.
The first grade students
worked hard and presented a
dynamic program entitled,
Reflecting On The Past While
Embracing The Future. The pro-
gram began with an introduction
by Alaysha Howard and Ayonna
Scott explaining the reason we
celebrate black history: to honor
our forgotten heroes and those
who made it possible for us to be
where we are today.
First, a black history rap was


performed honoring heroes like
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Rosa
Parks, and Harriett Tubman. The
overall message of the rap was,
What Are You Going To Do With
Your History? The students
dressed in black with rappers
Paraphernalia (shades, neck-
laces, hats).
Next, an oration about Harriet
Tubman was given: The class
strongly expressed that "Harriet
Tubman didn't take no stuff and
wasn't afraid of anything. She
didn't come into this world to be
a slave, and didn't stay one." The
students did a pantomime along
with the oration.
Then, a play was given about


Rosa Parks reminding us that we
do not have to sit on the back of
the bus, followed by a skit by the
first grade teachers, entitled, In
The Morning by Paul Lawrence
Dunbar.
The grand finale was a selec-
tion by Tayla Young singing the
Black National Anthem. The
students were shy when we first
started practicing the program
but as time went by they became
excited and could not wait to per-
form. It was such a pleasure to
see a sense of success written
across the children's face after
the program. Not only that but
parents, faculty, and staff
expressed a job well done!


Anchor Convention reaps rewards for Robert F Munroe


The Robert F Munroe Day
School Anchor chapter attended
the annual State Anchor
Convention over the weekend to
compete with other Anchor
clubs throughout the state. The

dedicated to children in the


community. The most presti-
gious recognition came from
the elections of Chelsea Watson

State, and Meg Summerford's

Barber, Beethoven and Brahms presented


by the Tallahassee Symphony Orchestra


On Saturday, March 17th at
8:00 pm, the Tallahassee
Symphony Orchestra performs
works by Barber, Beethoven and
Brahms 'conducted by Music
Director Miriam Bums. The con-
cert will be held at Ruby Diamond
Auditorium on the campus of
Florida State University.
Brahms' Tragic Overture opens
the concert. An audience favorite,
this piece alludes to no particular
tragedy, but was composed as a
somber complement to the joyful
Academic Festival Overture in the


same summer of 1880.
Soprano Carla Connors joins
the TSO for a performance of
Barber's Knoxville: Summer of
1915. Using text from James
Agee's autobiographical
Knoxville, Barber composed this
lyrical piece in 1947 when his
father was dying. Agee says of his
text: "We are talking now of sum-
mer evenings in Knoxville,
Tennessee in the time that I lived
there so successfully disguised to
myself as a child." Agee's own
father's death in 1916 reflected


special poignancy to the summer
of 1915, inspiring his text.
Beethoven's Symphony No. 7
is characterized by its rhythms,
and indeed, Richard Wagner
called the symphony "the apothe-
osis of the dance." Although com-
posed during 1911-1912, the piece
premiered in Vienna in 1913 as a
benefit to wounded soldiers. The
premier was timely, as the work's
celebratory nature reflected
Viennese relief and joy over the
recent victory of Wellington over
Joseph Bonaparte, bringing con-


delusion to a miserable period of
occupation and devastation.
"Barber, Beethoven and
Brahms" is sponsored in part by
the Earl Bacon Agency/Zurich
Insurance Co. and the City of
Tallahassee.
Tickets may be purchased
through the Fine Arts Box Office
at 644-6500, on line at www.tick-
ets.fsu.edu, or at Beethoven and
Company at 1415 Timberlane
Road. .Seating is limited. For

...USTTH FLU


During World War 1,116,545 American sol-
diers died in twenty months. During World
War II, 291,557 soldiers died in four years.
During the Vietnam War, 58,226 Americans
died in ten years. During four weeks in 1918,
influenza killed 200,000 Americans, and then
kept on killing. Before it stopped in 1919, it
killed over 600,000 Americans. Around the
world, it killed more than 40 million people.

It started innocently enough. On the morn-
ing of March 11,1918 Albert Gitchell, an
Army cook at Fort Funston Kansas, reported
to sickbay with a bad cold. Within a week,
522 soldiers were sick, and Gitchell was dead.
Of the others, forty-five died. But, no one
really paid any attention. After all, with thou-
sands of men living in close quarters, people'
got sick.

That spring, American troops flooded into
Europe. Unknown to the soldiers, they car-


"I had a little bird
Its name was Enza
I opened the window
And in-flu-enza."

ried the flu virus with them, and it spread
across Europe faster than the troops. As it
raced across the continent, people from
Russia to Spain fell ill. So many Spaniards got
sick that people began calling it the Spanish
flu. In Spain, people called it the French flu.
Seventy thousand American soldiers got sick,
and as many as 25,000 died.

By the fall, peace was in sight and soldiers
began returning to their homes around the
world. As they did, they took the flu virus
with them. In America, the second wave
started on the East Coast. New York, Boston,
and Philadelphia all saw their first cases in
mid-September. Only four weeks later,
12,192 Philadelphians were dead. By the end
of the year, the flu killed nearly half a million
people across.

Around the world, it took only weeks for
returning soldiers and sailors to turn an epi-

demic into a pandemic. In India, the flu killed
as many as 16 million people. In England, it
killed 228,000 and in Germany 400,000 died.
The disease killed people quickly, sometimes
within hours, but always with cruelty.

"As their lungs filled ... the patients became
short of breath... After gasping for several
hours they became delirious and incontinent,
and many died struggling to clear their airways
of a blood-tinged froth that sometimes gushed
from their nose and mouth."
Isaac Starr, medical student
University of Pennsylvania

As quickly as it had arrived, it left. In 1919,
the flu just went away. No one found a cure,
so no one knows why it stopped. Nor do
they know if it will come back.
