Search continues for missing man


Police: Local fled into wooded area after vehicle chase


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
A high speed chase with the Florida
Highway Patrol ended early Saturday
morning off High Bridge Road but the
search for Terrance Fisher, 36, is
ongoing.
Tuesday as deputies paddled around
in the murky water of an old niine hole
looking for clues, a helicopter on loan


from Leon County
searched from the
sky. A cadaver
dog, an animal
specially trained to
detect the oils from
human bodies, was
put in the boat
Tuesday. Seven
blood hounds also
searched the area


surrounding the mine hole. The search
was called off around 7 p.m. for the
night and resumed Wednesday
morning.
Betty Jean Fisher, Terrance's mother,
said she wants her son to call her, his
wife, another family member, or a
friend to tell them if he is all right.
Fisher said the last time she saw her
son was Friday evening around 7
o'clock. "His wife called me around 2


a.m. crying. She said Terry called her
to say the police were chasing him and
that he had a can of beer in the van,"
she said.
"I think he got nervous. He was
supposed to be off probation April 1
and he had that open container and he
was out past his (11:30 p.m.) curfew. I

With fanfare befitting the occasion, a
sizeable crowd gathered in, the mist
and cold March 16 to mark the 50th
anniversary of the Jim Woodruff Lock
and Dam.
The occasion also marked .the
facility's new .name, the
Woodruff/Seminole Site, with the
unveiling of a new sign. Toward the
end of the celebration, several


QPD officer hurt in crash


Quincy police officer Tara Bryant suffered leg injuries Tuesday
afternoon following a wreck in front of the police department at the
intersection of Duvaland Jefferson streets. Bryant, who was leaving the
station to investigate another traffic accident, was hit broadside by a car
driven by Oscar Moody. Witnesses said Bryant's blue lights and siren
were on at the time of the accident. Moody was charged with failure to
yield the right of way to an emergency vehicle. Both were transported to
Tallahassee Memorial Hospital. (Photo by Leslie Roberts)


ceremony participants placed photos,
newspaper articles and other 'related
memorabilia inside a turbine cylinder
once used in the dam's operation. The
cylinder will serve as a.time capsule,
not to be opened until 2032.
"This is a great occasion,"
Chattahoochee City Manager Lee
Garner said. "Normally I don't get
choked up, but I am."
Friday's ceremony took place at the
lower pool below the Jim Woodruff
Dam in Chattahoochee, a favorite spot


for fishermen. Turbulent water there
and an abundance of shad attracts sea
gulls, cormorants, Canada geese and
killdeer as well as the occasional
snowy egret and bald eagle.
Col. Pete Taylor Jr., district
commander of the Corps of Engineers,
said the dam represents a change for
the better in the way people along the
Apalachicola-Chattahoochee-Flint
river system live.

Chattahoochee looks for ways to


by LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor

When Walgreen's moves in, a
considerable chunk of downtown
Chattahoochee real estate will
move out.
What upsets some citizens most
about that is not the loss of the
buildings, which now house or
have housed a chiropractor's
office, a beauty parlor, a "swap
shop" and a florist shop. it's the
mural on the side of the vacant
florist and gift shop people want
to see stay.
"The property owner was
approached by a large retail
establishment," Chattahoochee
City Manager Lee Garner said.
"The city does not own the
property it is privately owned -
but we will try to do everything
we can to save it."
The buildings would be razed to
make room for the pharmacy if
the deal is finalized.
Accounts of when the mural
was painted vary; late
Chattahoochee artist Von Tipton
painted it on the building's brick
exterior some time during the past
20 years as part of a Rotary Club
initiative. The mural makes up
one side of Heritage Park, which
also sports a red caboose and a
memorial dedicated "to the
memory of every person from this
vicinity who made the supreme
sacrifice in defense of home and
family."
The mural, described by some
as "the pride of the town," and the

away.
Garner said one idea he's had
about preserving the mural is to
enlist the help of volunteers who
would then label each brick,
move it, and reassemble the mural
at a new site.
"I would like to see it as the
entranceway to the river right
there in the curve I think it's be
real pretty," he said.
But Turnage said he just doesn't
think that's a viable option.

ago. A retailer interested in, buying the city block on which it sits plans to raze the building, which
has some residents unhappy. (Photo by Leslie Roberts)


park, which features a large
fountain at the center of it, sit on
the corner of U.S. 90 and Decatur
Street.
Grady Turnage, a long-time
Chattahoochee resident and
renowned historian, said Tipton, a
fellow Rotary Club member, was
"a natural, artist."
Tipton has since passed away,
but the mural and the park are
a tribute to Chattahoochee's
history.
"When we put the memorial up,
we tried to remember all that had


died in defense of their homeland
- Indians, soldiers, all of them,"
he said.
The mural portrays the John W.
Callahan steamboat moving down
the Apalachicola River with a
railroad trestle in the background
and a fisherman settled under a
Spanish moss-covered tree on the
banks.
"The John W. Callahan was a
steamboat that Mr. Callahan in
Bainbridge had," Turnage said.
"He had a fleet of them that ran
up and down the Apalachicola-


Chattahoochee-Flint river system.
The boat was 'a stern wheel built
in Apalachicola. It sank in 1923
near Wewahitchka."
The red caboose in the park -
and the' railroad trestle in the
mural are, a nod to
Chattahoochee's railroad days.
The town was renamed "River
Junction" in 1921,' and boasted
the second-largest railroad
terminal in the state. In 1941,
town officials voted to change the,
name back to Chattahoochee after
railroads began to quietly' fade


"If they sell that building they
will tear it down. You can't pick it
up and put it back together," he
said. "When the rumors went
around and said it was
Walgreen's, I said, 'Whoa, that's
it.' I wish it could be put back
together, but I don't think it will
work that way when you take
mortar down and put it back up
you've got to have an artist to
touch it up. It will just have to
be."

Expert talks to




local health




care providers


Dr. William Sappenfield, State
Maternal and Child Health
Epidemiologist addressed health
care. providers in the county last
week.
The Gadsden County Community
Health Council met last week and
were told, by state health
administrators, that the county is on
the right track to reducing infant
mortality and low birth weight
babies.
"The county has identified the
contributing factors so that the
problems can be addressed," said
Cheryl Clark, Florida State
University consultant at the Infant,
Maternal, and Reproductive Health
Unit.
The local Healthy Start Coalition
named late and inadequate prenatal
care, poor nutrition, poor pre-
pregnancy health conditions, teen
pregnancy, and substance abuse as
direct contributing factors.
Some of the indirect causes
include no reliable and consistent
transportation, lack of knowledge
about nutrition, lack of knowledge
of pre-natal care and its importance,
lack : of knowledge about
reproductive health, and lack of self
esteem in youth.
To address these problems, the
plan is to develop brochures to
address pre-natal care, advocate a
sales tax for funding a
comprehensive care plan, mount a
community awareness campaign on
the effects of substance abuse
during pregnancy, and planning for
pre-pregnancy health.
To address teen pregnancy, the
plan is to distribute educational
materials to middle and high school
students, plan community
awareness activities, and
improvement of the coalition's
infrastructure.
Statewide, the infant mortality
rate is generally slightly higher that
the rest of the nation.
"Although rates have improved,
the racial gap in the state is

widening," said William
Sappenfield, MD, MPH state MHC
Epidemiologist.
In Gadsden County, the instances
of babies dying is slightly
decreasing. However the county
remains similar to statewide
statistics when it comes to the racial
gap with the white rate higher than
the'state average.
The root causes of some of the
decrease can be attributed to lower
instances of mothers abusing
alcohol and tobacco, better housing,
fewer cases of child abuse, and
lower economic crime. Causes on
the rise include violent crime,
education, economics, health, and
grandparents.
There are intervention programs
too that have been started to stem
the tide of infant mortality. They
include but are not limited to:
*MomCare Program
*Fetal Alcohol Disorder
Awareness
*Healthy Start Prenatal Risk
Screening*Healthy Start Prenatal
Services & Referrals
*VitaGrant Project
*Fatherhood Initiatives
*Abstinance
*Family Planning Services

WOODRUFF from Page 1


"James Woodruff was a native
Georgian concerned with how he
could provide flood control,
recreation and more for millions of
people," Taylor said. "I'm proud to
help mark the 50th anniversary of
this project and to see Jim
Woodruffs 'ork come to fruition."
James Woodruff Sr. is often
referred to as the "Father of the
Chattahoochee." An engineer,
financier, businessman and
philanthropist, his vision was to
transform the ACF river system into
a navigatable waterway with ample
opportunities for recreation. Flood
control and hydropower also
factored in.
Woodruff was one of the founders
of the Chattahoochee Valley
Chamber of Commerce in 1935 and
devoted the rest of his career to
making his dream a reality. He
lobbied for the ACF project, which
resulted in the construction of major
dams along the Chattahoochee that
provided hydroelectric power
generation, flood control and
navigation. The first dam built
under the project was the Jim
Woodruff Dam, dedicated on
March 22, 1957.
William Smallwood, operations
manager for the ACF Rivers
Project, said he'd worked as a park
ranger at Lake Seminole and came
to appreciate the area's natural
beauty then.
"Twenty-five years ago, I started
working for the Corps of Engineers.
I spent a little over a year as a park
ranger in Chattahoochee and found
out what a special place it was it is

after eight regional projects.
Involved in that are some 27 lakes,
and none are more beautiful than
Lake Seminole," he said. "While
we continue to celebrate the
commitment of the original project
and its participants, it's important to
keep local communities involved."
Keynote speaker Tom Moorer, a
representative of the Tri-Rivers
Waterway Association and an
executive with Southern Nuclear
Company, gave some background
on the area and touched on debates
in recent years over ACF river
system water allocation and the use
of hydropower.
Southern Nuclear Company is the
licensed operator of three plants:
The Joseph M. Farley Nuclear Plant
near Dothan in southeast Alabama,
the Edwin Hatch Nuclear Plant near
Baxley in southeastern Georgia 'and
the Alvin Vogtle Electric
Generating Plant near Waynesboro
in eastern Georgia.
"Over the last five years I've
worked with others to make
shipments to Farley Nuclear up the
ACF system. In 2005, we replaced
a reactor vessel head and moved it
out from Farley," he said. "Twelve
to 14,000 years ago, aboriginal
Indians settled this system. In the

1800s, the Corps of Engineers was
working this system and in 1878, a
6-foot by 100-foot channel was cut
'from the Apalachicola Bay north to
move cotton. Later, hardwoods
were moved up and down the river
... in the early days, this system was
very successful. After the drought in
'86 and'88 and some concerns about
environmental issues, we never
really recovered."
Channel maintenance is more
difficult as a result, Moorer said,
and the permits required to keep the

expensive.
"I believe it is in our best interest
to resolve these issues that are
before us channel maintenance,
permits that have essentially
caused this system to be in decline,"
Moorer said.

We all need a Spring Break, no

matter what age or occupation


ThisJust In


by Leslie Roberts,
News Editor


Chattahoochee mural is more than just

a pretty picture


Monday morning I woke up with my
heart filled with envy.
I was envious of the children,
teachers, and support staff who are
getting this week off for Spring Break.
If I had it my way everyone would get
a week off during the spring just to
regenerate.
After being shut up inside all winter,
the need to unwind is paramount for
me and a lot of others. I can hear the
arguments about productivity in the
workplace and how much money
employers will lose.
But on the flip side, think of how
much happier people will be on
returning to work. Think about the
increase in productivity as folks come


.Wnker do

lKe


back to the job with a renewed spirit
and a new attitude.
No, weekends are enough for spring.
By the time you shop, do laundry, mop
and dust the house and go to church,
the weekend is shot. But a few extra
days of opening up the windows to
allow your home to breathe helps the
whole person.
Just a few days to stop and observe
the wonderful and beautiful dogwood
trees and azaleas can't hurt anyone. We
rush through everything. We're always
in a hurry to get somewhere to do
absoultely nothing.
A Spring Break would allow all of us
to slow down, take it easy for a
moment, and contemplate the

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



'For of such is the Kingdom of

God'


Well, I found something else that I
can't do. Some nice meaning folks asked
me to judge some kind of contest they
were putting on at the Faith Christian
School. The students there had done
some science and history projects and all
I had to do was drop by, peer over my
glasses, look concerned and somewhat
interested-just like a real judge-and
pick out the best one.
It sounded simple enough.
We were going to take them in order
starting with the younger grades. Except
for the first one! The young lady was
sick and had just come to school to
present "her" project. She lights in on
Harriet Tubman and the Underground
Railroad that helped hundreds of slaves
move "quietly" out of the south and
escape to Canada directly preceding and
during the Civil War. She had pictures,
escape routes, artifacts..... As she
presented her prepared speech I could
see her little fingers trembling just a tad
in fear, or apprehension, or sickness, or
all three.
I gave her a perfect score. Bless her
little heart! I appreciated her gameness.
'And I was slightly more than impressed
with how the other students (sitting
quietly to the side) not only did not seem
to mind this out of order presentation,
they were openly pulling for her to "do
good".
I know some grown-ups that could use
that lesson.....We turned our attention to
Clara Barton. She was dressed perfectly
in antique nursing blue with the Red
Cross emblem appropriately displayed
across the front. I learned more about
Clara Barton, her Civil War work and the
American Red Cross in five minutes than
I had learned in my first sixty years.
I gave her a perfect score. She was just
super! And she was a lot better looking
than the real Clara Barton!
We had a young man lay out the Civil
War for us. He had maps. One of them
showed a section of West Tennessee.
Mother would never have forgiven me if
I hadn't given him a perfect score!
I loved Betsy Ross. And she had made
a flag! I gave her a perfect score.
Folks; are you beginning to see a trend

here?
The young man who did his project on
Pearl Harbor had actually interviewed
two survivors. How good is that! I had to
give him a perfect score. And listen, the
battle of the Alamo is one of my all time
favorite events in history. I gave that
young lady a perfect score just for being
smart enough to pick such a worthy
affair.
I listened intently to the talk on aspirins
as a coagulant. I studied the charts. I
haven't been feeling too good lately.....
She got a perfect score for being
concerned about my well being. As did
the young lady who presented scientific


proof that video games and rap music
adversely affects your blood pressure. I
have been saying that same thing for
years! I just didn't have the graphs... ..
It was, without a doubt, the most
educational morning I had lived through
in years. Hey, and it was fun. The
George Washington Carver girl had
cookies made out of.......you guessed it,
PEANUT butter! I ate four of them and
knew with the first bite here was another
perfect score.
I fought the battle of Midway with a
young person who could pronounce the
Japanese Commander's names. I bet you
can't do that! I waded ashore with the
dog soldiers at Utah Beach. I studied the
planes, tanks and u-boats of World War
I. We were. whisked back to 480. BC and
the Persian War battle at Thermopylae
(Hollywood has just made this project
into a movie). These reports -were
perfect!
I found out why John Hancock wrote
so big on the Declaration of
Independence. I wish my wife could
have seen all the lighthouses. Stonewall
Jackson and Abraham Lincoln are two of
my all time favorites. There would be no
cell phones if it hadn't a'been for
Alexander Graham Bell. And how often
do you get a chance to recall Princess
Diana and Al Capone in the same
morning. More perfection!
We visited Noah's Ark and King
Solomon's Temple. I near 'bout got
zapped with a Taser Gun. I hope that hair
spray Cathy uses doesn't make her blind
like it did the rabbits. Sheet erosion may
be more serious than you realize. And
I've got to get Rachel over to my house
to help me discover what kind of
precious metals I've got buried in the
back yard. Listen, it would be perfect if I
found a treasure.....
I preferred my bed to those Seminole
Indians Chickee huts. I found out how to
tell the male Orca Whale from the
female. And if you place a carrot, an
apple or a pear in front of a horse I bet
you don't know which one the animal
will select! We got a lecture on politics,
which I sorely needed. And we even saw
a chart delineating the amount of deaths
caused by accident versus deaths from
diseases. I studied on that one for a
while.....I didn't like either alternative! I
gave her a perfect score just for coming
up with such an innovative hypothesis.
I was trying to explain to Cathy that
afternoon just what an incredible
wonderful morning I had
experienced.....when she interrupted to
ask who won. That didn't take much
thought. And it didn't need a judge.
"I did."
Without a doubt!
Respectfully,

Mr. Kes


I had the pleasure of driving to
Chattahoochee no less than three
times last week Friday for the 50th
anniversary celebration at Jim
Woodruff Lock and Dam, Saturday
for the Chattahoochee Challenge
boat races and again Sunday for the
race finale.
Each time, I passed the mural on
the side of what used to be
Magnolia Florist and Gift Shop.
Painted by the late Von Tipton, it
portrays a steamboat moving up the
Apalachicola River in all its
majesty, a fisherman on the tree-
lined bank watching it go by.
It was only after talking with
Chattahoochee historian Grady
Turnage that I realized what a
treasure it is for the small
community, an anthology of its
early beginnings as a steamboat port
and railroad terminal.
When sedimentation from heavy
cotton production made navigation
on the Chattahoochee more and
more difficult in the early 1870s, the

U.S. Army Corps of Engineers
widened the channel, but by 1881 or
so, steamboat lines were ready to
call it quits. The Corps projects
didn't seem to be helping, and
steamboat companies bore much of
the expense of keeping the river
open.
Around that time, the railroad from
Quincy was extended to
Chattahoochee and a railroad trestle
was built across the river in 1882.
Chattahoochee's railroad terminal
was the second largest in the state at
the time, and in 1921 town elders
voted to rename the hilly town on
the banks of the Apalachicola
"River Junction."
After the mass-produced
automobile signalled the death toll
for river commerce and the railroad
industry, officials voted to change
the town's name back to
Chattahoochee, "which it had been
to all of us all along," Turnage
noted.
It's easy to see why the owner of


the properties Walgreen's wants to
buy would want to sell. Harder to
swallow is the idea that doing so
will result in the destruction of the
mural.
The site is not on city property, but
City Manager Lee Garner said he's
willing to do what he can to help
preserve the mural. His suggestion:
The development of a group of
volunteers who would take down
the mural, brick by brick, number
the bricks, move the entire thing to
another site and reassemble it there.
It's not a plan without flaws. The
artist who painted the mural died
several years ago, so any touch-up
work necessary after such a major
operation would have to come from
someone else's paint brush.
Finding a devoted group of folks
willing to spend time on the tedious
undertaking might be a challenge.
It's worth a shot, I say. There's no
way to tell whether such a project
could be accomplished until
somebody tries it.

Thank you, officers

Dear Editor:
We are most gracious and thankful that
on the evening of March 11, 2007 when
our Security Department called for your
assistance the Gadsden County Sheriffs
Office responded without hesitation to
assist us with the situation at Unit #29
(MRDP).
We extend our deepest appreciation to
you Sheriff Young and the outstanding
performance of your agency (Major D.
Ganious, Major S. Wood, Capt. D. Brown,
Lt. B. Wilder, Sgt. B. Mitchell, Sgt. A.
Brown, Deputy D. Edwards, Deputy T.
McSwain, Deputy G. McSwain, Deputy P.
McMichael, and your professional 911
communications officer's).
The result of this incident was only put
to an end when Major S. Wood took
command of Unit #29 (MRPD) until your
arrival on grounds.
We again compliment you and your staff
for your dedication, loyalty and
commitment to our Security Department,
hospital and community. We will always
be available to assist your fine agency
when we are called upon by Gadsden
County Sheriffs Office.

To the Editor:

Mr. Graves Williams must have been
absent when Gadsden County gave raises
to employees and an extra paid Holiday.
In the newspaper last week he complained
about the county getting extra tax dollars;
well you forgot to say that Gadsden
County got two new fire stations so the
citizens in those areas could pay less
homeowners insurance. Three new
libraries in Gadsden County is what you
should be talking about that will help get
our children off the street and into college.
Gadsden County is renovating 3 new
parks to allow citizens an opportunity to
use community park facilities with
restrooms and other amenities. Helping to
bring in the Piggly Wiggly Project and
over 100 Jobs is another little thing that
you forgot to mention to the local readers.
Lets take a minute and talk about the
county bringing 150 jobs to our youth in
the county jobs training program.
I am no big fan of government as many
people know but Mr. Graves I am sure
you remember your family and others like
your working our families to death in the
tobacco fields. But now our children are
getting job training so they may see a
brighter future than we did. Yes you are
paying more taxes but you made more
money off our ancestors therefore you
have more money to pay taxes with. You


could always pay thoseex-slaves families
the money your families owe them which
would be the fare thing to do and that
would be a great tax savings. Or you and
others like you could allow the county to
continue helping all those that are less
fortunate than you are due to slavery and
post slavery conditions that you profited
from. In this country we fought to be free
so that we could have choices and now
you are saying the officials we elected to
represent us are abusing those choices.
Where were you over the last 100 years
when we were being abused under people
you chose that only represented you?
Those people did not represent the total
population of Gadsden County.

Free At Last

Martin Lee Anderson ( age 14 )
transcended the fences of the Bay County
Juvenile Boot Camp on Jan. 6, 2006, and
left behind the cruelty, the abuse and the
discrimination that the then Attorney
General Charlie Crist aka Chain Gang
Charlie and his buddy Jeb Bush inflicted
on inmates and youth in prisons, private
prisons and boot camps in Fl.
Today Martin is smiling in heaven
because a lawyer who was smarter than
Chain Gang Charlie brought. Martin
justice. Chain Gang Charlie was hit the
only place he could be hurt, in the State
Treasury. Do not think Chain Gang
Charlie did this because it was the right
thing to do Chain Gang Charlie is the
same Attorney General who introduced
the law requiring inmate's to serve 85% of
their sentence because that would reduce
crime yet thus far in 2007 murder has
went up over 400% in Miami!
Tonight as we lie down in our
comfortable beds remember that Martin is
smiling down from heaven at Chain Gang
Charlie and he is laughing but also
remember to pray for the 86,490 inmates
who are subjected to abuse,
discrimination and maltreatment in state
and private correctional facilities,
institutions and jails. They are now where
Martin has been and face the same
treatment from correctional officers.
Martin's abuse was caught on tape, their
abuse is endured in silence.
It will be interesting to see if these
vicious correctional officers will be sent to
prison under their real names just like
Martin Anderson was. Martin's crime was
trespassing at a school which caused him
to violate his probation. Martin paid a big
price and a LOT of others have too, we
just haven't heard about them on Dateline,
YET!

County commission discusses NFMC lease


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

Commissioner Ed Dixon
didn't pull any punches during
Tuesday night's regular meeting
of the Board of County
SCommissioners when the issue
of renewing the lease for North
Florida Medical Center.
Thornton Williams, county
attorney, said he had hammered
out a three-year lease agreement
with the company that offers
. medical of a sliding fee scale.
"I have a great problem with
a company that is not complete-
ly above board. They use our
numbers to draw down federal
dollars, they're using us to float
others," Dixon said.
He said that the county has
Cutoff access to funds simply
because it is a part of the North
Florida Medical Centers organi-
zation. He said the company


does not provide numbers of
patients they see annually. At one
point the center was paying the
county $50,000 per year in rent,
but that amount was lowered.
"The only reason we lowered it
was because of Dr. (Jessie)
Furlow," Dixon said.
He said the center cannot
keep doctors and that they have
a fully equipped dental clinic but
no dentist.
"Our children have to go to
Wakulla County to the dentist.
The North Florida Medical
Center is supposed to provide
primary health care to the citi-
zens of Gadsden County. They
don't often have doctors down
there. They don't have a dentist
and they won't help us get one.
Every doctor who is at the Bond
Clinic (in Tallahassee) was
here," Dixon said.
"They walk by you and won't
even speak. They have their


heads in the air like they're
doing us a favor," he said.
Other commissioners said
they didn't know as much as
Dixon about the medical center,
but all agreed that a three-year
lease was a-long time. Williams
was asked to go back and nego-
tiate for a one year lease.
In other matters:
*Commission Chairman
Brenda Holt and six staff mem-
bers are going to Washington,
DC to attend meetings in an
effort to expedite getting the
hospital open again. "This is a
very serious matter to us. We
have to impress upon them that
the hospital closing was not the
county's fault and if it was need-
ed where is was then (when
built) it is needed there now,"
Williams said.
The delegation is carrying
statistics to show the number of
ambulance trips that must go


out of the county and that these
trips take up to two hours. They
will also point out that many of
the cases that leave the county
could be treated here if the hos-
pital is allowed to re-open with
the critical access designation.
*The good news is that the
permanent sewer line to connect
two new hotels and possibly
future development at the inter-
serction of I-10 and State Road
267 is expected to be completed
by the end of the year. The bad
news is that it will cost nearly
$95,000 additional taxpayers
dollars to complete.
Farnita Saunders, Director of
Community Development, said
a number of factors contributed
to the delay. "There was a 8-9
month delay on the project, but
we're on track now and should
have a fully installed permanent'
system by the end of the year,"
she said.


Local Boys and Girls Club considered


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor


A Boys and Girls Club locat-
ed somewhere in Gadsden
County could become a reality
as early as June 4, if a facility
can be located and if they can
get a minimum financial com-
mitment of $75,000 per year for
S7 years from local governments.
That's what J.R. Davis, vice
president of operations of the
Boys and Girls Clubs of the Big
Bend told a group gathered for
Sthe Roundtable on Youth last
Wednesday night. The Club was
one avenue leaders where look-
ing at giving young people
something constructive to do
when not in school.
About 25 people representing
state and local governments, the
Clergy, non-profit programs for
'ydtiuth;, and school district: epre-'
Ssentatives attended the third ses-
sion to discuss the county's
youth in crisis and how to help
them.
Davis said the Boys and Girls'
Clubs would love to have a pres-
ence in the county. "There are
presently three clubs each in
Jefferson and Franklin Counties
and six in Leon County," he
said. The clubs serve over 1,000
kids a day with 90 percent com-
ing from African-American
backgrounds.
"The Big Bend Clubs repre-
sent the largest youth develop-

he said.
He painted the picture of a

have better grades," he said.
But not everyone was ready
to jump on the Boys and Girls
Club bandwagon. "We already
have these programs in the
county. I would like for us,
(Investing In Our Youth and
other programs) to make the
same presentation. Boys and
Girls Clubs is not a magic bullet.
The answers to our problems
cannot be solved from the out-
side," she said.
Davis told Anderson that the
clubs often partner with other
groups and organizations.
"We're not coming here to drive
people out of business," Davis
said in repsonse to Anderson's
concerns that they would be

Ag Literacy Day teaching children the importance of reading, agriculture


by LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor

They giggled, they wiggled,
their eyes open wide
"Oh Say Can You Seed?" had a
story inside
Readers were eager to show
them the way
Seeds turn to food in a matter
of days

Volunteers followed the Cat in
the Hat's lead
As he described the edible,
incredible transformation of a
seed
With water, and air and sun-
light galore
Seeds turn to beanstalks, and
apples and more

Second-graders at Greensboro
Elementary huddled together on
the floor around Isaac Simmons.

cloth for your pants came from
trees and from cotton that's two
kings of plants,'" the school board
member read. Thursday was

Since the last blues note was
played and the last piece of bar-
becue was eaten at Quincyfest
2006, the Quincyfest Blues and
Barbecue committee has been
hard at work tweaking and cri-
tiqueing getting ready for
Quincyfest 2007.
This year's plans are coming
together as committee members
have begun meeting twice a
month in advance of the big
event.
"This year will be two days,
May 4 and 5. The Latinofest has
been scheduled for Friday night
downtown. There will be
Hispanic music and food and a
chance to get into the cultural
experience," said Quincyfest
co-chairman Michael.


Agriculture Literacy Day
statewide, and schools throughout
Gadsden County participated by
bringing in volunteers to read "Oh
Say Can You Seed," a book in the
Cat in the Hat Learning Libray
written by Bonnie Worth.
The Florida Department of
Agriculture and Consumer
Services sponsored the event, pro-
viding the books to classrooms
throughout the state as well as
plantable seed cards, temporary
plant tattoos and bookmarks.
Locally, volunteers aplenty
turned out for the event.
Simmons said he enjoyed the
activity and thinks it's important to
offer children a chance to see peo-
ple from all walks of life read.
"My observation is it gives
kids an opportunity to see people
that every day read to them and
that brings a different aspect to it
for them," he said. "I believe my
class enjoyed it. I think as volun-
teers, we read differently than
teachers. And it's a good opportu-
nity for somebody to make a dif-
ference in a kid's life."


O'Halloran.
He said that the local
Hispanic community has cele-
brated Cinco de Mayo (May
5th) for many years in Gadsden
County. Because Quincyfest is
always held on the first
Saturday in May, it would
always fall on or around Cinco
de Mayo.
"We had been looking for
something to do on Friday
night. Especially since many of
the professional barbecuers'
arrive and set up on Friday
afternoon," he said.
The intent of the committee
has always been to expand the
festival to a two or three day
event.
But, O'Halloran said, more
volunteers are needed this year
with the crowd expected to
reach four or five thousand peo-


*Power Steering
*Automatic Transmission


The change in classroom lead-
ership, even temporarily, can stim-
ulate students to participate and to
pay attention.
"They were very excited. I'
don't think one method (of teach-
ing) is good for every child we're
teaching. I saw it today kids were
excited about learning. Teachers
don't have the time to know the
kids on a personal level they rely
so much on structure. This also
gives volunteers a chance to see
what challenges the teacher
faces," Simmons said. "If we
could somehow get rid of all the
guidelines and standardized test-
ing and just get back to teaching,
we'd do better."
Angela Rowan was a hit in her
Cat in the Hat costume, and she
brought her own dirt, seeds and
cups to show children how to
plant.
She said she's considering vol-
unteering at Greensboro
Elementary regularly.
"When my. kids were young I
worked and couldn't volunteer,"
she said. "I love children."


ple Saturday.
"The Latinofest.is going to
be exciting and this year we're
looking at more professionals
and more backyard barbecuers.
Not to mention some class act
blues performers from around
the region," he said.
O'Halloran said the commit-
tee needs volunteers, to help
ensure that things run smoothly.
"We're recruiting volunteers.
We know people in the commu-
nity want to help and we need
them. We've made a list of areas
where we need help and volun-
teers will be matched with the
needs." he said.
If you want to volunteer, call
Sylvia Hicks at the Quincy City
Hall, 627-7681 and leave your
name and telephone number
and the hours you prefer to vol-
unteer.

Other volunteer readers at
Greensboro included Gadsden
County Sheriffs Office deputies,
Samuel Jackson of the
Department of Juvenile Justice,
Jack Wainwright, from
Greensboro's faith-based partner
Greensboro United Methodist
Church and others.
Originally, parent liaison
Tamika Battles had planned to
have readers visit students in
grades preK-third; so many volun-
teers turned out there were enough
to read to fourth-graders as well.
"It's just been excellent,"
Battles said. "These volunteers
graciously donated their time."
Greensboro Principal Ella
Ponder said the day reinforces
what the school hopes to instill a
love of reading in an environ-
ment many are familiar with -
agriculture.
"A lot of our children's parents
work in tomatoes and snap beans,"


she said. "Our school improve-
ment goal is to have more readers,
good readers, by third grade. We
want our students to learn to love
to read. We're trying to read to
them as much as we can and listen
to them read as much as we can."
Florida Agriculture and
Consumer Services
Commissioner Charles Bronson
kicked off the fourth Agriculture
Literacy Day March 12 with a
press conference in Tallahassee.
"Children today are several
generations removed from the
farm, so it's important we use
events like Florida Agriculture
Literacy Day to teach them their
food, fiber and landscape materi-
als come from farms and not from
stores," Bronson said.
Locally, Agriculture and
Consumer Services marketing
director Jan Summerford organ-
ized the event for Gadsden County
schools. More than 1,400 farmers,


ranchers, members of local Future
Farmers of America chapters,
agriculture industry volunteers
and educators read to more than
2,900 elementary classrooms
around the state on Florida
Agriculture Literacy Day, March
15. The day was sponsored by the
DACS and Florida Agriculture in
the Classroom, Inc., a non-profit
organization based in Gainesville
and charged with educating
Florida students and teachers
about the importance of agricul-
ture.
"Florida Agriculture Literacy
Day has become a popular event
for members of the Florida agri-
culture industry, and is a great way
to teach students about the impor-
tance of the agriculture industry,"
said Cara Martin, chairwoman of
Florida Ag. in the Classroom and
assistant director of government
and community affairs for the
Florida Farm Bureau.

Mortgage burning


Members and friends of Beulah Hill Baptist Church in Gretna celebrated a milestone Sunday
afternoon during a program that featured the symbolic burning of the church's mortgage. The
church was founded in 1908. The new church, on U.S. Highway 90, was completed in 1991. Above,
(left to right)Henry Grant, chairman of the Board of Deacons, Rev. Matthew Carter, II, and
Trustee Chairman John Riley, conducted the ceremony in front of more than 100 members and
guests. Rev. Carter proclaimed Sunday as a "great day in the history of the church."


TEC holds

20th Youth

Tour
Talquin.Electric Cooperative
held its annual Youth Tour pro-
gram on March 15 and 16.
Twelve high school juniors rep-
resenting schools throughout
Talquin's four county service
areas assembled in Tallahassee
for competition. Each student
was selected by his or her
respective school administra-
tion.
The late President Lyndon B.
Johnson inspired the Youth
Tour. As a senator from Texas
he addressed the Annual
Meeting of the National Rural
Electric Cooperatives
Association (NRECA) in 1957.
If one thing goes out of the
meeting, Johnson said, he hoped
it would be sending youngsters
to the national capital where
they can see actually what the
flag stands for and represents.
Beginning that year, some Texas
cooperatives sent groups of
young people to Washington to
work in Senator Johnson's office
for the purpose of learning about
government.
Iowa and Illinois coopera-
tives followed suit and by 1959,
Youth Tour had grown to 130
students. The Youth Tour now
has over 1,500 students partici-
pating each year.
Our group of young adults
gathered on the morning of
March 15 at our Bradfordville
Office. General Manager John


Hewa enthusiastically greeted
our students and gave them an
overview of the role coopera-
tives play. After speaking and
talking with the 2007 Youth
Tour, it became very apparent
that this year's group has a
bright future.
In Tallahassee the group'vis-
ited the Florida Senate. While
seated in the Senate chambers,
they were given an opportunity
to observe bills being introduced
and voted upon. Seeing a bill
navigated through one branch of
government proved to be
insightful.
The group next saw an
IMAX movie and visited the
Planetarium while at the
Challenger Learning Center for
an excellent demonstration on
electricity.
Mrs. Susan O'Halloran


(Gadsden County TEC member)
conducted a most impressive
tour of the states highest court,
The Florida Supreme Court. A
mock session allowed our stu-
dents to role-play justices and
attorneys. Every student partic-
ipated in some fashion in this
very animated discussion. If
you would like more informa-
tion on the Florida Court sys-
tem, their web address is
www.flsuprmemecourt.org.
The four students competi-
tively selected to attend the
Washington D.C. conference in
June are Rochelle Bennett from
Wakulla High, Kaitilin
Cunningham from Lincoln
High, Sean Griffin from Maclay
and Kierstan Monohan from
Liberty County. April
Bauchman from Florida High
was selected as the alternate.

EGHS JROTC makes a splash at state competition


by LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor

Iashea Baker was a self-
described shy ninth-grader
when she joined the Junior
Reserve Officer Training Corps.
Now a senior at East
Gadsden High School, she says
the program helped her come
out of her shell.
Not only that, she progressed
to commander of the school's
JROTC Female Armed Platoon,
which placed fourth in the
March 10 Brigade State JROTC
Drill Team and Color Guard
Meet.
"I joined to flip rifles. Then I
started marching rifles," she
said. "I ended up marching
rifles a year, and I liked it and I
stuck with it."
The EGHS JROTC has done
well this year its Female
Unarmed Squad won first place
at the state competition, beating
35 other teams.
Commander Brittney Smith,
also a senior, is the squad's

like we're a family.'

commander.
"Brittney was on the squad
four years ago and won first
place, and now she's a senior
and won first place. What a way
to go out," said Master Sgt.
Jerome Kerrison, the drill
team's trainer.
Cadet Sgt. Ernest Nixon also
earned a medal at the competi-
tion,. placing ninth out of more
than 100 candidates in the
armed knockout competition.
This is the East Gadsden
JROTC Drill Team's four year
competing at the state level and
the fouth year it has brought
home trophies. The cadets com-
peted against top drill teams


from around the state. Several
of the schools that participated
compete at the national level
competition every year. The
group is now in training for the
Army National Eastern Region
Championship in Landover,
Md. The competition is the
week of spring break.
Brittney said she was "elat-
ed" to have won the state cham-
pionship four years in a row,
and that she has enjoyed being
part of JROTC.
"It's teamwork it's like
we're a family," she said.
Brittney plans to go to
Florida State University and
major in mass communications;
Iashea has her eye on Florida
A&M University, and is in the
process of applying to its school
of medicine.
"After I get my degree, I plan
to go into the army as an offi-
cer," she said.
Sgt. First Class Michael
Williams also trains drill team
members,at EGHS, focusing on
exhibition drill.

City of Gretna wins 2007 best-tasting water competition


Special to the Times

For the past several years,
the City of Gretna has been
under increasing pressure from
state regulators to make
improvements in the City's
water system.
Tuesday, Mayor Nadine
Smith, city commissioners and
the citizens of Gretna had reason
to celebrate: The City of Gretna
was named winner of the Florida
Section of the American Water
Works Association (FS/AWWA)
2007 Best Tasting Water contest
for Region I.
Mayor Nadine Smith


said,"This recognition could not
have come at a better time in the
history of the City of Gretna, the
award is proof positive that the
City has a good supply of water
and the City of Gretna has an
award-winning staff."
City Manager Antonio
Jefferson said, "It feels good to
move from issuing precaution-
ary boil water notices to citizen
notification of recognition for
great quality water. We want our
citizens to have confidence in
the water we supply them."
The City faced some stiff
competition in the contest, com-
peting against water entries from

Talquin Electric Cooperative,
the City of Tallahassee, City of
Sopchoppy, and water systems
in Panacea and Bristol.
Gretna will frow move on to
represent Region I in the
statewide Taste Competition on
March 28 at the Florida Capital.
The FS/AWWA is part of the
national American Water Works
Association (AWWA) which
was established in 1881.
AWWA is an international, non-
profit, scientific, and education-
al association dedicated to
improving drinking water for
people everywhere. From its
modest beginnings more than


100 years ago, AWWA has
expanded to become the largest
organization of water supply
professionals in the world, with.
members in virtually every.;
country. The Florida Section of"
AWWA (FSAWWA) is the pre---
mier water association in-
Florida. The.Florida Section has-
over 2,700 members include 130:
utility members that collectively:
supply potable water to more-
than 80 percent of the state's7
population. Region I of-
FS/AWWA is made up of water
systems in Franklin, Jefferson,:
Leon, Liberty, Madison, Taylor,;
and Wakulla counties.


DRUGS from Page 1


contraband legend drugs, a
second-degree felony, and
operating a pharmacy without a
license, a third-degree felony.
The joint investigation by the
Gadsden County Sheriffs Office,
the Florida Department of Law
Enforcement, the Florida
Department of Health and the
North Florida Drug Diversion
Response Team (DRT), was
launched after information was
developed that black market
antibiotics and birth control drugs
were being sold from the store.
The investigation revealed that
along with the drugs, injection
kits that included syringes and
instructions for use were also sold
to enable customers to inject the
drugs themselves.


A search warralit was served on
the store on Friday and among
the items seized were more than
100 boxes of pharmaceuticals,
syringes and nearly $70,000 in
cash. It is believed that the drugs
were smuggled into California
from Mexico by a distribution
network that takes orders then
ships the drugs and supplies
across the United States.
"We know this has been going
on for some time," said Phil
Kiracofe, public information
officer for the Florida Department
of Law Enforcement's
Tallahassee operations regional
center. "The fact that we see
$70,000 indicates they had a
pretty healthy business."
The month-long investigation


revealed that customers .could
walk into the store complaining
of various ailments and purchase
drugs without any medical
consultation or prescription from
a physician. Mi Favorita Tienda
is not licensed as a pharmacy.
Neither Saenz, 48, nor Campos,
43, are licensed pharmacists or
physicians and are not qualified
to administer or prescribe drugs.
The two men, both residents of.
Quincy, were notified of the.
charges and surrendered
themselves to authorities at the
Gadsden County Jail Tuesday',
morning. The investigation is.,
still underway.
"We expect there may be more-
arrests," Kiracofe said;
Wednesday morning.

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.

Boat-racing 'family' brings excitement to Chattahoochee


by LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor
Although it didn't draw as
big a crowd as it has in
recent years, the. crowd
assembled for the seventh
annual' Chattahoochee
Challenge Saturday and
Sunday was enthusiastic, if
a bit cold.
But the race has always
been more of a distinction
than a source of revenue,
City Manager Lee Garner
"This is not a money
maker. It's something the
city puts on for the citizens
of Chattahoochee and
surrounding areas," he said.
"We want to be the boat
racing capital of Northwest
Florida."
Around 647 attended the
race Saturday, a cold,
blustery day, and 451 went
on Sunday, when
temperatures warmed up
and undercurrents calmed
down.
Linda Eldredge, co-
commodore of the Florida
Outboard Racing
Association and a referee at
the Chattahoochee
Challenge last weekend,
said the 25 competitors in
the race enjoyed the
weekend despite a rough


start Saturday.
"Saturday was rough it
was very windy, and there
was a strong undertow,"
Eldredge said. "But we
love the crowd the crowd
was awesome and it was.a.
good weekend. We didn't
have any accidents it was
just a good two days."
The Chattahoochee
Challenge, a 10-lap race on
the Apalachicola River, is
one of several races on the
American Power Boat
Racing Association circuit.
Competitors in the
Chattahoochee Challenge
race mainly outboard
pleasure craft or super light
tunnel boats.
The FORA races as a
group, Eldredge said,
running races in Southern
states during winter and
early spring and races in
the North in the late spring
and summer. In autumn,
they return to sunnier
climes to race. This is the
first year the group has
been in charge of the
Chattahoochee Challenge -
in years past, it was
handled by the APBRA.
Eldredge got into boat
racing in 1975 and
discovered she loved the
sport and its culture.


"It's a big family it's just
this huge family. There's
nothing these guys
wouldn't do for each other,
but' they'll try as hard as
they can to beat each other
on the course. I just really
enjoy it," she said,
Garner said the race has
always been popular
locally, and that he is eager
to expand its reach.
"Hopefully, we can grow
'this thing," ,he said. "It's
good, clean entertainment
for the whole family."
Below are the results of
final races Sunday and the
classes that were run:

Spring is almost here again, and with it will come
warmer weather, new plant life, and baby animals! -
March 21st is the first official day of spring in 2007. This season
is one of the four that we experience in the temperate climate zone,
summer, winter, and autumn are the other three. The beginning of
the spring season occurs with the vemal equinox. The vernal equinox
is one of two equinoxes' that occurs each year An equinox is a
celestial event which occurs when the sun is located directly above the
equator. Because the sun is directly above the center of the Earth, on this day both day and night are equal in length. The word 'equinox' is Latin for,
"equal night". While we begin spring in the Northern Hemisphere, the season of autumn begins in the Southern Hemisphere. during this same equinox.
Springtime is celebrated in many cultures. Ancient Egyptians celebrated their new year with thevernal equinox. The onginal Earth Day was celebrated on the first day
of spring before being changed to April 22nd. in Japan, the vernal equinox is a national holiday And the date of Easter coincides with the first full moon on or after the vernal
equinox. Spring is a time when animals wake up from hibernation and plant life begins to bloom again. Shortly after the beginning of spring many baby animals are born.
There is an increase in outdoor activities, such as hiking and sports. And an increase in thunderstorms, tornadoes, and hurricanes occur, due to the warmer temperatures
moving into the Northern hemisphere. Spring cleaning is also a popular springtime event, where homes are cleaned thoroughly after the long, cold winter. Life literally
"springs" forward, which is the reason the season was named spring. f l w, d ea" f

The School of Theatre at FSU presents 'The History of Cardenio'


The School of Theatre at
Florida State will present a spe-
cial staged reading of The History
of Cardenio on Sunday, March 25
at 7 pm in the Fallon Theatre. In
Shakespeare's unfinished play
based on characters from Don
Quixote, Don Ferdinando forces
marriage on his friend Cardenio's
beloved Lucinda, betraying both
Cardenio and his own 'lover
Violante. Brokenhearted,
Violante and Cardenio plot to be
reunited with their true loves.
Two of the other principal char-
acters in Cardenio are Don
Quixote and Sancho from
Cervantes' Don Quixote, which is
the story of an old man who


believes what he reads about
knighthood. The History of
Cardenio is the story of a young
man who believes what he reads
about love. What Cardenio has
read does not prepare him for the
comedies and tragedies of love in
the real world. And when
Cardenio and Quixote meet on a
mountaintop, the eccentricities of
age tilt at.the windmills of young
love.
The History of Cardenio
returned to the London stage in
1727 as Double Falsehood a
contemporary adaptation of an
earlier manuscript written by'
William Shakespeare and John
Fletcher. Shakespeare scholar


and FSU professor Gary Taylor
has reconstructed this 17th-centu-
ry play that had been virtually
lost to audiences for centuries.
The staged reading of The
History of Cardenio will feature a
number of guest artists coming to
the School of Theatre for this
event including Jay Thomas (The
Jay Thomas Show on SIRIUS
Radio; Murphy Brown for
which he won two Emmy Awards
for his portrayal of Jerry Gold;
Cheers; Mork and Mindy, Love
& War and Mr. Holland's Opus);
Dan Lauria (The Wonder Years;
Stakeout; Cagney and Lacey;
Independence Day; From the
Earth to the Moon; Prince of the


City and Artistic Director The
Playwrights Kitchen Ensemble);
Brian Smiar.(Rescue Me; Hack;
Ed; Frasier; Cheers; The
Education of Max Bickford;
Third Watch; Law & Order); and
Jim Frangione (The Unit,
Transamerica, Heist, Spartan;
State and Main, .and American
Buffalo at the Berkshire Theater
Festival).
The visiting artists will be
rehearsing and working side by
side with current School of
Theatre students, faculty and
alumni (recent BFA graduate
Adam Thompson) under the
direction of visiting guest direc-
tor, Joe Cacaci.


Mr. Cacaci has been an award-
winning writer, director and pro-
ducer since 1978. He was the
founding Artistic Director of East
Coast Arts, Producing Director of
The Playwrights Kitchen
Ensemble in LA from 1993 to the
present, and recently directed the
world premiere of Victor
Bumbalo's Questra at the Court
Theatre in LA featuring Wendie
Malick, Dorian Harwood and
Dan Lauria. Mr. Cacaci co-creat-
ed the CBS prime time series The
Trials of Rosie O'Neill and was
Executive Producer of
Showtime's The Hoop Life and
CBS' The Education of Max
Bickford.


Tickets for this one night spe-
cial event are $20 and a limited
number of $40 tickets are avail-
able that will include a VIP recep-
tion offsite after the reading.
Tickets are available online at
www.tickets.fsu.edu or by calling
the Fine Arts Ticket Office at
850-644-6500.
The School of Theatre at
Florida State is a proud member
of the College of Visual Arts,
Theatre & Dance. For more
information, please contact the
marketing office at the School of
Theatre at 850-645-1958.
Artwork for The History of
Cardenio will be available
Monday, March 19.


Promotions at CPA


At the beginning of the second
semester, some students of Carter-
Parramore Academy received spe-
cial recognition during an exclu-
sive promotion assembly. 140 stu-
dents were officially promoted to
higher-grade levels. This is one of
the steps of an ongoing effort to
help students become productive
citizens.
The parents were also in atten-
dance to offer additional congratu-
lations and support. During the
assembly, principal Dr. Green
explained the conditions of pro-
motion. "All parents had to sign a
COntuac ageeluig to the'terms. We
met one of our main goals, which
is to move up our students to their
appropriate grade levels."
One of the students promoted


was Jamiya Brown (pictured ).
Upon asking her how she felt she
had this to say "I am ready to
move up to my right grade level. I
want to get there and do my work.
"Another student that was promot-
ed was Ashley Cox, who went
from being a sophomore to a junior.
"I feel good about the move. I am
excited that I worked so hard and
that I finally got put up to my right
grade. My momma is happy for.
me and wants me to do my best."
Middle School intensive read-
ing teacher Renee Presha men-
tioned, "I feel that the promotions
ill help them do better in school.
Because they are in their right
grade with kids their own age,
they can be motivated to do better
in class."

Everyone learns at St. John Elementary


Professional Development
must be ongoing if teachers are
to stay current with the latest
research in reading. That is why
the teachers at St. John
Elementary School are constant-
ly engaged in Professional
Development that is designed to
be used back in the classroom.


On Tuesday, March 13th, the
teachers spent their planning
time with Regional Coordinator,
Ms. Yvette Lerner learning
about Interactive Word Walls.
The teachers were given a pack-
et with valuable information and
simple activities to use immedi-
ately in the classroom after Ms.


Lerner talked about Word Walls
and how to make them interac-
tive. To ensure the use of this
new found information, each
teacher received a word wall
pointer and a mini flashlight.
The teachers left energized and
ready to put this new knowledge
into action!

B 8 The Gadsden County Times March 22,2007


Alzheimer's program may be coming to Gadsden


by LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor

It's called Project Lifesaver,
and it may be coming to
Gadsden County.
Begun in Leon County in
2004 as a partnership between
Project Lifesaver, the Leon
County Sheriffs Office and the
Tallahassee Pilot Club, Project
Lifesaver works to identify
patients with dementia resulting
from Alzheimer's disease,
Down's Syndrome and other
causes.
Once identified as patients
who have a tendency to wander
off alone, participants are fitted


with a wristband containing a
radio transmitter. The transmit-
ter allows sheriffs offices par-
ticipating in the program to
quickly locate the individual
once his or her caregiver noti-
fies law enforcement that they
are missing.
Alzheimer's Project adminis-
trators Liz Lambert and Bill
Wertman spoke at Tuesday's
Pilot Club meeting as part of the
club's recognition of March as
Brain Awareness Month.
Their hope ,is the Quincy
Pilot Club will be able to help
get the project off the ground in
Gadsden County and find a way
to fund equipment that would


enable the Gadsden County
Sheriffs Office to track patients
that had wandered off.
"We have a Project Lifesaver
in Leon County and it's been
very successful we have about
60 patients," Wertman said.
"We're very interested in help-
'ing Gadsden County get their
program off the ground.
Currently, the Gadsden County
Sheriffs Office has one piece of
equipment that can track
bracelets. Ideally, they need
three to form a triangle."
The receiver unit, or tracking
device, used for the program is
$2,000 per unit. Bracelets for
participants are around $250,


but there is no cost to partici-
pants for the program.
"What we're hoping to do is
work with the Sheriffs Office
and the Pilot Club to training
volunteers to check and change
batteries in the bracelets,"
Wertman said. "We are right in
the solicitation phase in
Gadsden County. We're work-
ing with the Sheriffs Office to
-do assessments for potential
participants there's a waiting
list. Two people so far have
asked to be on it."
Project Lifesaver was estab-
lished in 1999 as an initiative of
the 43rd Virginia Search and
Rescue Company of the


Chesapeake, Va., Sheriffs
Office.
In more than 1,000 searches
nationwide since then, no seri-
ous injuries or deaths were
reported and an there was an
average recovery time of less
than 30 minutes among Project
Lifesaver participants.
Project Lifesaver teams are
specially trained, not only in
search and rescue and the use of
electronic tracking equipment,
but also in the methods neces-
sary to communicate with a per-
son who has Alzheimer's dis-
ease or a related disorder. Often,
the person who has wandered
off is disoriented, anxious and


untrusting, according to a
Project Lifesaver press release.
According to the press
release, six in 10 of those with
Alzheimer's disease will wan-
der.
If not found within 24 hours,
wanderers have only a 50 per-
cent chance of survival. One in
166 babies born are now diag-
nosed with autism and. later
develop a proclivity to bolt and
run. One in 800 births are diag-
nosed with Down's syndrome;
Down's patients also have a ten-
dency to wander.
For more information about
the program, call 850-386-
2778.

HES Safety Patrols on the job in 2006-2007


The Safety Patrols of Havana
Elementary are on the job. The
2006-07 school term marks the
second year the safety patrols
have been in existence at HES.
The nine students were selected
for their courtesy, dependability,
interest in the job, physical fit-
ness, attitude and scholastic
standing.
February 20th was a special
day for the patrols. They were
officially sworn in by Mr. Ron
Peterson, Assistant Principal at
HES and Deputy Sheriff
Lindsey at the Gadsden County


School Board office. Dr. Nash,
Character Education Director
for the District, spoke with the
students to encourage-them as
peer role models. Dr. Nash
emphasized the seriousness of
their responsibilities but they
were not to let their position "go
to their heads" so to speak..She
warned them of the pressures
they may face from their friends
to show favoritism and encour-
aged them not to succumb to
those pressures. It was also
explained to them that their
position as patrols was a privi-


lege and they were to set the
best example in maintaining
good grades and showing
respect to their teachers. By
doing such, they would be
encouraging their school mates
to do the same. Dr. Nash certain-
ly gave them sound advice
which the Safety Patrols have
taken to heart.
As Principal, Mrs. Elizabeth
Turner has observed, they are
carrying out their responsibili-
ties diligently and setting a fine
example for all other students to
follow.

Was It A Misunderstanding
Was It A Misunderstan'ding


A major reason why seven Arab nations formed,
the League of Arab States on March 22, 1945
was to prevent the creation of a Jewish state in
Palestine. They believed it was a sovereign
nation, recognized by Great Britain in 1915.
When World War I began, the Middle East was
part. of the Ottoman Empire, which fought
against Britain and France. To divert Ottoman
resources away from Europe, and use fledgling
Arab nationalism to its advantage, Britain
offered to support the creation of an inde-
pendent Arab nation, if they agreed to rebel
against the Ottomans.
After receiving assurances of British support in


a letter dated October 24, 1915, the Arabs
launched a successful rebellion against the
Ottomans. The letter said:
"... Great Britain is prepared to recog-
nise and support the independence of the Arabs
in all the regions (with modifications stated earli-
er) within the limits demanded by the Sherif of
Mecca...
To the Arabs surprise, Britain also pledged to
support a Jewish homeland in Palestine only
two years after agreeing to support its inde-
pendence.- The Balfour Declaration of
November 2,1917 said:
"His Majesty's Government view with
favour the establishment in Palestine of a nation-
al home for the Jewish people..."


The King-Crane Report, August 28,1919
The King-Crane Commission, created by
President Woodrow Wilson, investigated and
recommended the best course of action in
Turkey and the Middle East following World
War I. Changing events prevented its use by
the American delegation, and the report
remained secret. In 1922, Editor & Publisher
magazine, with the support of former
President Wilson, printed the report. Web

nearly 500,000 Jews lived in Palestine, a tenfold
increase since World War I. Another attempt to

Munroe juniors travel to Ga.


The junior class at Robert F.
Munroe Day School spent most
of last week in various towns in
Georgia as part of their study of
the Civil War and the study of
the Roosevelt and Carter presi-
dencies. The first stop was at
Andersonville for a tour of the
park and historic prison. They
went from there to Atlanta to
tour the Carter Center and visit
the Aquarium. On the way back
to Florida, they visited the
Roosevelt home at Warm
Springs. One of the comments
concerning the trip and all that
was seen came from a student
who was horrified at the recent
destruction done in Americus,
Georgia by a tornado. The bus
rode through the center of town
where so many businesses and
churches were damaged beyond
repair. "It will be years before
they recover," said Mrs. Cynthia
O'Donnell, Dean of Students
and chaperone for the trip.
