Smith sentenced to


life without parole


Man pleads no contest to 2004 quadruple murder


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
The man responsible for the most
gruesome murders in modern times in
Gadsden County was sentenced to life in
prison last Wednesday afternoon without
the possibility of parole. Willie Sentile
Smith, Jr. was allowed to plead no-contest
to the killings two weeks ago in the 2004
murders of his girlfriend Kimberly Walker,
18 as well as her mother Deondra Scott, 35;
her sister Laterica Jackson, 14; and her


cousin Terrel Brown, 9.
While family members waited to have
their say, Judge P. Kevin Davey told them
'that their statements would have no impact
because Smith was going to receive the
maximum sentence under the law. The four
life sentences, he said, would run
concurrently.
Davey questioned Smith about his plea
who said he had not been promised
anything to enter the non-contest plea.

Cleaning up Gretna


Officials hope

closure of'The

Hole' will lead

to better image


Popular gathering place
now off-limits to regulars

by LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor
Hidden from the world by a thick buffer of trees behind
Thompson's Grocery, The Hole has been one of Gretna's
most popular gathering spots for 20 years, maybe more.
Patrons arrived around 6 a.m., when the store opened, to
buy beer, cigarettes and other supplies before heading
down a sloping, well-worn path to The Hole, where most
would stay until close to midnight talking, drinking beer,
gambling and doing drugs.
The site once had its own mayor and city commission;
around 40 folks could be found there on any given day.
"They had a different mindset they handled their own
issues," Gretna Police Chief Bryap Bess said. "They
considered themselves separate from Gretna."
The police department has pictures of people hanging
out at The Hole dating back to 1994. Bess said many of
the same faces still frequented the spot 13 years later -
until last week, when the city shut it down.
After the city closed the site, putting up barriers and no
trespassing signs, former Hole full-timers are at a loss as
to how to spend the day.
"There's a lot of potential here," a man who calls
himself Shep says, gesturing toward a dilapidated green
cracker house situated on the property. "Lots of potential.
This was THE place to be. You could buy an $11 bottle
of gin and make $60 selling shots through the window.
There's a day side and a night side they'd sell beer,

Havana resident put aside artistry for volunteer work

Havana is working to
create a better history

by giving some of its

Times News Editor
She might have been born in
Cajun Country, but once she
moved to Gadsden County in the
'70s, she adopted it and its
residents en masse.
"I think Havana is the center of
the universe," Aaron said.


Aaron lived in Havana in 1972
and '73, teaching at Florida State
University, but then moved to
Gainesville to teach at the
University of Florida.
She moved back to Havana in
1978 to teach library and
information science at FSU; afer
her retirement in 1995, she had
planned to become an artist.


Instead, "I got painter's block,"
she said. "God didn't intend for
me to be an artist, so I then
focused more on volunteer
work."
It was then that she discovered
she was cut out for full-time
volunteer work and how much
she liked it.
"It's actually the most


rewarding thing I've ever done.:
It's what God intended me to do,":
said Aaron, 66. "My family:
always said if you have
something, you need to give:
something."
Aaron holds three college
degrees: A bachelor's in English

Powell gets life



sentence for



Wilson murder


Jack Polk of Tallahassee
smiles Tuesday as he claims his
prize from a Farmer's
Furniture drawing in Quincy:
A brand new Poulon Pro riding
mower worth $1,999. The
drawing was company-wide,
but only the Quincy store had a
winner. "I'm happy this is the
first thing I ever won," Polk
said. Polk, now retired, worked
as a wildlife officer in Gadsden
County 35 years ago. Two of his
daughters still live here: Marie
Horton and Karen Conrad.

backyard of his home in the
Robertsville Community, north
of Quincy.
Powell also lived in the
neighborhood.
Last month Powell testified
that while he committed the
crimes he was persuaded to do
so by his 28-year-old cousin
Donna Cannon. He said Cannon
knew about the crime and helped
plan it.
A jury found Cannon guilty
and she was sentenced to life in
prison for her role in the murder
and an additional 30 years for
her part in the robbery.


City approves $415,000 paving, resurfacing project


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

The Quincy city commission
tabled a plan that would pay for
a paving and resurfacing project
to the tune of $415,000 for city
streets.
"I don't feel comofrtable with
this, the funding the figures, and
the streets," said Commissioner


Derrick Elias.
Inside the city limits there are
currently less than 2.5 miles of
unpaved streets. Several weeks
ago, the city passed a special
$17,000 funding to resurface
Dezell Street.
That street was in such poor
condition that Commissioner
Andy Gay called it an
embarrassment.


While Dezell was was recently
resurfaced, City Manager Bill
Bogan said he wants to city to
have an ongoing paving and
resurfacing program so that they,
will not have to spend millions at
the time on street
maintenance."We want to put in
preventive measures to maintain
the streets," Bogan said.
In other matters, the city is


looking for 100 utility customers
who will be willing to learn to
read their own meters. The
"Electric Meter Reading Pilot
program" will allow, Boagn said,
will help dispel the belief that
customers are being over
charged by the city."
Additionally, it will also give
them the opportunity to confirm
the work that the meter readers


doing.
At the end of the three month
pilot program, a recommendation
will be made to the commission.
To participate in the program,
residents must have been a
electric utility customer for five
years, never have had their
utilities disconnected or was
disconnected more than three
times in the past five years, their


account with the city must be
current, and they must be willing
to attend four hours of training
on how to read the electric
meter.
Residents who want to sign up
for the program must do so in
the city's customer service
department by Friday, March 30
between.8 a.m. and 5 p.m.

When asked if he had anything
to say, he slowly turned toward
to family of. the victims and said:
"I just want to tell the family I'm
sorry."
The family wasn't impressed.
They wanted Smith to get the
death penalty.
"I don't think it was right.
That's what he (Smith) wanted
and that's what he got. I just don't
think it's right," said James
SWillianms, Kimberly's father.
Scott's; sister, Desmona


McWhite, said she had
not planned to speak during the
sentencing, but changed her
mind.
"No words can describe how I
feel about Willie Smith. He stole
my sister, my best friend, my
confidant. His apology in no way
moves me. His tears don't move
me and his words don't move
me," she said.
Glenda Pace, aunt to '.he sl.nr
family, said she felt Smith should
be forced to give his life.--"You


give him life, but he took four
lives. It's not fair. It's not fair,"
she said, unable to contain the
tears.
But Terrel Brown's mother,
Onika Rumph, directed her
remarks to Smith. "My son never
had the opportunity to grow up.
He never had a chance. All I
want to know is why?" she asked
of her son who was shot in the
back of the head as he played a
video game.
*Smith, \\ho \\as 21 :a the timie


of the murders, confessed that
night to then deputy Morris
Young. He told Young that he
had killed the four because he
"lost it."
"First, I want to offer my
sorrow ard condolences of the
four family members in the case.
I am sorry, I lost a child at age
16, so I empathize with you all. I
hope that with time, it will
become easier to deal with. I
know. 'that :some of you are
disappointed that this case didn't


go to trial and proceed to the
death penalty," Davey said.
But he told the family that the
death penalty is often only the
beginning. He said he thought the
victims are better off and that-he
hoped closure would begin that
day. The judge explained to the
family that the Legislature passed
a law making it illegal to execute
a person deemed mentally
retarded.' -Aft"r listeningg t "16 1
-hours of., .lc.mion\, 'he.;: aid,
Smith met t'.o of the three


requirements to be considered
mentally retarded.
He said the decision he called
were so close, he didn't think the
Death penalty would be upheld.
"I believe this decision is right
under the law. I hope and pray
the family will begin closure
Today. This may be incomplete
justice, but we all know that
justice will be meted out by God
in the eid. May God have mercy\
on your soul Mr. Smith," DaU e
said.

good friend of mine. Everytime
he came home we would get
together. I can't seen to shake
this. It was such a senseless
killing. He loved law
enforcement and he loved what
he was doing we talked about it a
lot," said Sheriff Morris Young.
According to the Berkley
County coroners' office and
witnesses interviewed by the


(Charleston) Post -and Courier,
someone called police with the
license number for a pickup
belonging to a couple who had
been arguing at a laundry off
U.S. Highway 17A. The two
officers arrived separately at the
address on the truck's
registration.
It is unclear what happened
next at the home of the suspect


(whose name has not been
released). Neighbors said they
heard gunfire, about 10-12 shots,
before seeing police cruiser
speed off.
When other officers arrived,
they found Wells dead near his
cruiser and Stiles on the ground.
The suspect sped off in the police
vehicle. Other officers gave
chase and said the suspect ended


up in a field at a nearby school
where he died. It. is unclear
whether the suspect was shot by
officers or if he killed himself.
"We're all just devastated by
this. We've always known that
domestic violence cases are the
most dangerous," said Gadsden
County Sheriffs Office Major
David Ganious, Well's brother-in-
law.


Wells was named the 2006
"Officer of the Year" in Monck
Corner. Family members said
most of his career had been as a
School Resource Officer and that
he was loved by the children
whose lives he touched.
Young said a service will be
conducted in South Carolina
Thursday and that the funeral


will be in Quincy Saturday at the
National Guard Armory. Times
were not available.
Wells is the son of Hazel Wells
of Quincy and the late Rev.
James Wells. The class of 1984,
of which Wells was a member,
will hold a special meeting on
Monday, April 2nd at 6:00 p.m.
at Shanks park.


WOMAN from Page 1


and speech from the University
of Southwestern Louisiana; a
master's in library and
information sciences from FSU
and a decorate in library and
information sciences, also from
FSU.
Single by choice with no.
children, she considers the local
students on whom she
concentrates most of her
volunteer efforts as her own.
"All of the children in Havana I
consider my own," she said. "I'm
from the South, so the only thing
you went to college for was in
case something happened to your
husband. Having had the
experiences I've had, I believed I
was meant to teach."
After serving a stint as
coordinator of the local
Democratic party and
coordinator of Havana's Relay
for Life, Aaron came up with a
fundraising idea that
incorporated local students. For
each book Havana students read,
a sponsor donated $1 to the
cause. 'Volunteers, including
Aaron, also read weekly to
students.
"At some point, it became
apparent to me that at least three
of those little kids were in the
second grade and they had been
failed twice," she said. "At that
point, I said, these are our
children. This is our community.
They are so experiencially
deprived by the time they're in
preschool, they can count to two.
Children are supposed to be able
to count to 100 by the time
they're in kindergarten."
Being involved with the
students also gave Aaron a
chance to understand some of the
challenges they faced and
inspired her to look at ways of


helping not just the students, but
their entire families regain a
sense of acommplishment and
hope.
She became a one-woman
societal change advocacy force.
"In an at-risk situation like we
face, things like the FCAT are
leading these children to hate
education,'! Aaron said. "I want
to see a school within a school. I
want to see 'No Child Left
Behind' regulations loosened.
The FCAT, I believe, is
responsible for leaving a lot of
children behind. When you have
a child who is experiencially
deprived, we need to level the
playing field.
"Their parents are beset by so
many problems getting food,
getting transportation, having
three or four children to care for.
You have to go the next step and
change a generational mentality
that doesn't allow people to rise
above where they are."
Those beliefs 'led Aaron to
create "I Can," a successful one-
on-one mentoring program at
Havana Elementary School, two
years ago. The program relies on
volunteers to not only tutor
students in kindergarten through
second grades, but to advocate
for them in the classroom to help
teachers understand the unique
circumstances surrounding each
student.
Aaron soon implemented a
second program, "I Can Too,"
geared toward parents of students
who are struggling academically.
Volunteers coach parents on how
to help their children succeed,
but also prepare them to take
general equivalency diploma
tests or attain other job skills that
could propel them toward a
brighter future.


She says that often, parents of
children who are tagged as "at-
risk" academically had the same
kinds of problems when they
were in school, and the cycle
repeats almost endlessly.
"It's a matter of building trust
through the children and then
reaching out to people who have
had their dreams deprived for
years," she said. "In order to
make real societal change, you
have to serve the whole family."
Those attempts, however, are
not always successful.


"Often, parents pick another
way to fail," she said.
Aaron said she has talked to
Gadsden County Schools
Superintendent Reginald James
about bringing her programs to a
Quincy elementary school and
will do some time in April. The
school has not yet been named.
"We concentrate on K through
second grades because that's
where we feel like children are
lost," she said. "Our objective is
to have "I Can" in. every
elementary school in the county."

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.


I hear people use the term "back when
times were simpler". Or they refer to those
"lazy, carefree days of yesterday." Or that
"age of innocence" before Vietnam, civil
protests, long hair and Strawbeny Fields
forever ....
As near as, I can figure it this "idyllic time"
falls in the late 1950's and early '60's. Folks, I
lived through those days. And if you think it
was all Bobby socks, hula hoops and
chocolate malts on perfect summer
afternoons then you've got another think
coming!
Dad would put us down in that field
behind Archie Moore's pond. He'd give us a
hoe and demand that we "chop" the cotton.
Cut out the weeds that would grow beside,
along with and in amongst the budding
cotton sprouts. You had to get every weed!
You couldn't-under any circumstances-cut,
nick, hit, injure or mutilate a single one of the
fledging cotton plants. Listen, a bunch of
those weeds looked surprisingly a lot like the
small cotton leaves you were trying to
protect!
There wasn't nothing "simple" about that
job! It was hot down in that bottom field
where you couldn't get a breath of air. Your
back would hurt from bending low to "get
the right growth out". Sweat would sting
your eyes. And I still have blisters on iny
hand from those never ending bouts with the
hoe handle..:.. There was absolutely nothing
"lazy or carefree" about chopping cotton. No
way! No how!
And I ain't even going to bore you with.the
hay hauling, fence post digging, okra.cutting,
barn cleaning out or cow "fixing" details.' :
I remember discovering girls about the
eighth grade or so. Millicent Blackburn quit
being Millie and started being Millicent. I
grew up with Pam Collins but she suddenly
wouldn't have nothing to do with nie. Jane
.Hill would have one of her famous skating
parties and she wouldn't invite nobody but
girls. Every one of them stopped wearing pig
tails and started wearing cologne.
It was just strange!
Along in there somewhere I figured out that
Ruth Ann Wiley was a little more special
than the rest. I aimed to tell her how I felt.
"Not so fast," Leon was older, and I assumed
at the time, wiser. "You don't want to be too
direct. That wouldn't be cool. How does she
feel about you?"
"I don't have any idea. That's what I'm
planning on asking her."
"Aw man, you can't do that! You've got to
put out some feelers. See if she would be
inclined to go out with you. Who is her best
friend?"
"Probably Pam."
"Go talk to Pam, off the record. Tell her.
you might be interested in Ruth Ann.....but
you might not be. You know, be kinda casual
like."
"Leon, I don't think that will work. Pam
ain't saying much to me these days."
"Well, who is Pam's other best friend. You
need to talk to her to talk to Pam about Ruth
Ann.
I headed to school the next morning
looking for LaRenda Bradfield and
pondering all mighty hard on how did you


627


talk to a girl "off the record"?
I explained things best as I could to
LaRenda. To my surprise she was all fired
interested. And she promised to talk to Pam.
The guys were laughing before I could get
to PE.
"So, you're going out with Ruth Ann."
Ricky Hale was just a grinning.
"I am not!"
"Have you kissed her yet?" Bobby Brewer
wanted the gristly details.
"Are ya'll getting married?" I couldn't tell if
Buddy Wiggleton was kidding or serious.
"You guys are nuts. I don't even like the
girl! And I have no idea what you are talking
about!"
You think it was a simple time! Or
carefree! I was mad as a wet hen. I was ready
to fight somebody. I had just told two lies. I
was feeling lower than a whale's belly. And I
hadn't even talked to Ruth Ann Wiley!
Miss Galimore, who was serving in the
lunch line, smiled at me as she dumped the
fish sticks on my plate, "Ruth Ann went by
just a few minutes ago."
I ran into Ruth Ann coming out of Mrs.
Paschall's social studies class. She turned red
as. a beet and stared at the floor. I was just as
uncomfortable, ran my hand through my hair
about six times, cleared my throat twice and
then headed to baseball practice without
saying a word!
And people, we haven't even gotten to high
school yet......
I went out for football and those seniors
would run over me and kick me and grind
their,fdet into me on the field and pop me
., '. lih i dS, ls and lthi- me in the shower after
"practice. And we were on the same team!
And if you could have heard those locker
room discussions about Bobby Sue
Kirkpatrick, Diane Porter and Billie Jean.
Coponi you would know that there wasn't a
shred of "innocence" in that room!
I glanced out the window in Mr. Berry
science class a couple of years later and
Trudy Wingarten's father was duking it out
with Arlo Cunningham! Right in the school
parking lot! I knew Arlo had been seeing
Trudy. And I had heard that Mr. Wingarten
strongly disapproved. But I couldn't believe
they were out there in broad daylight, on the
school campus, trading punches. I was just a
junior in high school, and according to
current thinking, we were living in simple,
carefree, innocent times-but this one was
going to take some figuring out!
We studied Latin. I failed it both
semesters. You think it -was simple? How
about having to learn the prologue to the
Canterbury Tales? I ain't never heard that old
English language used since that class. And
no one in all my life has ever rushed up to me
and asked -me how to get to the train station
in Latin!
Maybe those folks remembering the time as
lazy and carefree and innocent didn't have to
study Virgil or Chaucer. Or chop cotton. Or
watch grown-ups fight with high schoolers .
Or live through a football season. Or try to
get a date with Ruth Ann Wiley.....
Respectfully,
Kes

I have truly terrible news: Haribo
gummi bears have been recalled.
Yes, recalled.
I have not yet heard about this on any
breaking news outlet. I read it for
myself on the cash register display at
Walgreen's during a deadline day
traipse down the candy aisle: RECALL
ITEM flashed in green digital display,
screaming the impossible.
No gummi bears for me.
"It says recall item," the clerk
offered.
"Maybe it's just that bag," I said,
crazy hope coursing through my veins,
adrenaline fueling my sprint back to
the candy aisle to pick out another bag..
Meanwhile, the clerk had called a
supervisor. He looked grim.
They both did.
I shoved the second bag of Haribo
bears across the counter.
"Here try these."
The clerk picked up the scanner with
resignation, glancing at me carefully to
make sure I didn't make any sudden
moves, and dutifully scanned the bag.
RECALL ITEM.
"What does that mean?" I. said
dumbly, the realization that I was
about to be denied my deadline day,
guilty pleasure starting to sink in.
The supervisor, seeing this was on

the verge of turning serious,
intervened.
"It means we can't sell them."
The finality of his words hit like a
leaden' "30 Days to a Thinner You"
handbook.
My mind rejected it, instantly, the
whole idea that Haribo gummi bears
had done anything to warrant being
recalled.
"Then I can't have this one bag?" I
asked quietly.
"We will have to pull them off the
shelves," the chagrined supervisor
said.
I left, gummi bearless.
There are imitators aplenty but only
ONE is the Haribo gummi bear.
"Kids and grown ups love it so, the
happy world of Haribo."
What's not to like about brightly-
colored bear shaped candies consisting
solely of sugar, gelatin and food
coloring? I mean, they have zero fat.
They're practically a health food, in
my mind. They've got 3 grams of
protein per serving. OK, they're 150
calories per serving but no trans fat!
Haribo: Maker of quality gummies
candies since 1922. Who else can say
that? Who?
Upon returning to the office, I
immediately called the U.S.-Food and -


Drug Administration where, as you
can imagine, I got instant results. Not.
My plan was to find out why the
Haribo bears were recalled, and to
relay my fervent belief that they
should fix the problem by the end of
the day.
"For food-borne illnesses and
cosmetic safety, press one. For class II,
recalls, press two. For upcoming
public meetings, press three," a
'recorded voice said.
I pressed two.
"For food-born illnesses and
cosmetic safety, press one. For class II
recalls, press two. For upcoming
public meetings ...
I called Haribo of America Inc. in
Maryland and was told by a customer
service rep that they had, indeed, been
recalled.
"Why?" I said.
She referred me to Christy, who was
not in, but I left her a voicemail
explaining who I was and the
information I was after. I'm still
waiting for a call back.
It's not like I'm coming unraveled or
anything I've got plenty of gum to get
me through the rest of the day.
But if they're not back on the shelves
by this time next week?
-Well, that's a whole different story ...

Don't use cypress mulch

This spring many gardeners in Florida will
buy cypress mulch, not realizing that this
mulch is cut from vital wetlands that stabilize
,our coasts against storm surges and erosion.
During storms, cypress wetlands absorb
floodwater like a sponge, protecting coastal
communities and saving lives. They also
serve as critical habitat for migratory birds
and wildlife.
State and federal government officials turn
a blind eye to the fact that many Louisiana
and Florida cypress forests will never
regenerate once cut. Although legal to
harvest in Florida, the logging of immature
cypress swaps is devastating wildlife habitat
that will take generations to recover, if ever.
Meanwhile, retailers use creative language
to convince gardeners that their cypress
mulch is "sustainable." But don't believe
what's written on the bag. Mulch producers.
admit to mislabeling their product and
retailers don't really know the source of the
mulch they sell.
The most tragic fact is that cypress mulch is
not as effective as other mulches. The
heartwood from mature, centuries-old trees
is rot and termite resistant. But the cypress
mulch you buy in garden retail stores comes
from young trees that don't yet have these
qualities. A University of Florida study
confirmed that cypress mulchl isn't any better
for your garden than pine bark or eucalyptus
mulch or even leaf litter.
Why cut a tree to grow a flower? Please
don't buy cypress mulch. Choose an
alternative and save our cypress forests.

Saving fuel

Rising fuel costs are on the minds of most
Americans these days as gas prices are
expected to top $3 per gallon in coming
weeks. Sure, you can simply stop driving as
much, but for many consumers, that's not an
option. But there are two ways all of us can
stretch our precious gasoline dollars.
One strategy is to change how we drive,
and the other is to perform simple and
inexpensive vehicle maintenance. Taking
these steps will not only save gas money, but
will improve a vehicle's safety and


dependability.
National Car Care Month in April is an
ideal time for motorists to review the factors
that can impact fuel economy. According to
the Car Care Council, the most common are
under-inflated tires, dirty air filters, old spark
plugs and something as simple as the gas cap.
Check your vehicle gas cap. About 17
percent of the vehicles on the roads have gas
caps that are either damaged, loose or are
missing altogether, causing 147 million
gallons of gas to vaporize every year.
*.When tires aren t inflated properly, it's
like driving with the parking brake on, and
can cost a mile or two per gallon.
A vehicle can have either four, six or eight
spark plugs, which fire as many as three
million times each 1,000 miles, resulting in a
lot of heat, electrical and chemical erosion. A
dirty spark plug causes misfiring, which
wastes fuel. Spark plugs need to be replaced
regularly.
An air filter that is clogged with dirt, dust
and bugs chokes off the air and creates a
"rich" mixture too much gas being burned
for the amount of air, which wastes gas and
causes the engine to lose power. Replacing a
clogged air filter can improve gas mileage by
as much as 10 percent, saving about 15 cents
on a gallon.
Aggressive driving can lower gas mileage
by as much as 22 percent on the highway
and five percent on city streets, which results
in seven to 49 cents per gallon.
Sitting idle gets zero miles per gallon.
Letting the vehicle warm up for one to two
minutes is sufficient.
Gas mileage decreases rapidly at speeds
above 60 mph. Each mph driven over 60
results in an additional 10 cents per gallon.
To maintain a constant speed on the
highway, cruise control is recommended.
Last year, vehicle check-up events
conducted throughout the country revealed
that nearly nine out of 10 cars required some
type of maintenance. This reinforces the
need for the motoring public to become
more aware of the maintenance needs of
their vehicle to save money, conserve energy,
improve highway safety and help protect the
environment.
Every motorist can receive a free 56-page
Car Care Guide that takes the guesswork out
of vehicle maintenance by visiting the Car
Care Council's Web site at www.carcare.org.

THE HOLE from Page 1


liquor, wine, whatever out the
after-hours window."
The Hole consists of just under
2 acres of cavernous backwoods
dotted with a smattering of trees.
The heavy foot traffic cleared out
most of the underbrush years
ago; the sandy-bottomed spot
was, until recently, littered with
empty beer bottles, liquor bottles,
cigarette butts and assorted trash.
Even after a massive cleanup,
beer bottles and playing cards
still layer the landscape. A
discarded toilet sits on its side;
nearby, a chicken stands,
unmoving, next to a dead flock
member wedged into the fork of
a tree.
Shep cooks he'll proudly tell
anyone who will listen he's the
best cook around. He sees that as
a money-making opportunity in
The Hole too, he said.
"I get mine, you get'yours it's
the American way."

City ups ante on code
The City of Gretna recently
stepped up its code enforcement,
starting with owners of vacant
property before moving on to
occupied lots. After the city
asked the owner of the property,
John Thompson, to clean it up,
he in turn asked the Gretna
Police Department to remove
unauthorized people from the
property.

"The owner of the land came to

said. "What we want is the area

drinking and standing around.
About 2,000 people live in
Gretna, and about 40 of those
frequent The Hole. The citizens
of the City of Gretna will like the
impact its closing will bring."
City Manager Antonio
Jefferson said the cleanup cost
Thompson around $5,000.
"It was an atrocious mess," he
said. "I don't think the property
owner would have had a big, big
issue with them being there if
they'd cleaned up after
themselves."
Thompson declined to
comment on the issue.
Since the Hole's closing, some
of its patrons have moved across
the street to another piece of
property owned by Thompson.
Others.sit around a row of trash
cans behind the grocery store,
furtively sneaking sips of beer
and hanging out.
"We really want The Hole back,
because now we're in the public.
In The Hole, we ain't got to be
bothering with the police," said a
43-year-old man at Thompson's
Grocery Monday. "We're well
known."
Well known but nameless.
Asked for his name, the man
said, "No, baby, don't put that in
the paper."

What now?
The chief complaint of the
group of around 10 men gathered
behind the store that day was that
they now risk being arrested for
having an open container of
alcohol in a public place.
None could answer why they
continued to drink alcohol in a
public place.
"This right here a policeman
come by and see you with an
open container and he's got to
arrest you," ,a 51-year-old man
who declined to give his name
said. "You're on your own when
you're drinking out here you
can get locked up ... the man in
the store said we could sit here,
because it's good for business,
you see, but he didn't say
anything about taking
responsibility."
Gretna City Commissioner
Helen Franks said her church,
Springfield A.M.E., has
ministered to patrons of The Hole
for years. Franks, who is running
for re-election this year, is
spearheading a movement to
bring a substance abuse treatment
center to Gretna.
"Five of them have joined our
church. They want to change
their lives," she said. "I talked to
them, and they say they're
depressed and that's why they do
it."
Many Hole frequenters are on
disability, Franks and Bess said,


a a

"It's become a way
of life for these guys.
They cook down
there, they sit and
play cards.They're
really good people -
they're just stuck in
this way of life. The
majority of them are
on disability they
pay rent, they're
making it, but they
have some problems."

Gretna City Commissioner
Helen Franks



and spend a sizeable portion of
their checks on beer and liquor -
as well as on drugs including
marijuana and crack cocaine.
"It's become a way of life for
these guys," Franks said. "They
cook down there, they sit and
play cards. They're really good
people they're just stuck in this
way of life. The majority of them


are on disability they pay rent,
they're making it, but they have
some problems."
Franks has been in touch with
the Tallahassee-based "Mothers
in Crisis" group, an addiction
recovery program for women. Its
founder, Rosalind Tompkins, in
turn referred her to "Men in
Crisis," which is run by her
husband,.Charles Whiteside. The
majority of the people who spent
time at The Hole were male, but
some women also frequented the
spot. Tompkins said plans are to
try to organize some kind of
cooperative effort between the
church and Men in Crisis to help
people who spent a lot of time at
The Hole get sober if they want.
"I don't know what the happy
medium is," Jefferson said. "It's
sad. It hurts me personally. that
some people live their lives that
way."
Bess said he hopes that as
Gretna continues to improve, it
will offer more recreational
opportunities for its residents.
"There needs to be more
positive activities for people to
do we will never advocate
sitting around and drinking in a
public place," he said.
The men ,gathered behind
Thompson's Grocery Monday
morning drinking beer agree. But
their idea of "positive activity"
differs markedly from that of city


officials. A 51-year-old man said
he thinks the gathering of former
Hole frequenters might put a dent
in business at Thompson's
Grocery. But he -didn't have an
alternative in mind.
"The' Hole was more
convenient -there wasn't no
killing, no fighting. The public
knows about The Hole but they
can't see it," he said. "This will
stop a lot of people from coming
by here if they see a bunch of
people sitting around."

Trail growing cold on missing local man


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

The search for Terrance
Fisher, missing since March 17,
has still not truned up any
leads. Sheriff Morris Young
said officers have searched the
mine hole twice daily in an
effort to rule out the possibility
that Fisher may have drowned.
"This is a puzzle, we just


don;t know
what could
have hap-
pened to
him,"Young
said.
Fisher,
36; was last
scene by Fisher
Florida
Highway Patrol after a high
speed chase that ended off High


Bridge Road around 2 a.m. on
March 17.
The area is near where
Fisher lived with his wife and
family.
Fisher's mother said the last
time anyone heard from her son
was that morning when he
called his wife to say that he
was being chased by authori-
ties. She said he may have been
afraid of going back to jail


because he was violating his
parole by breaking his curfew
and by drinking.
Betty Jean Fisher pleaded
for her son to contact her, his
wife, another family member,
or friend.
Anyone with information on
Fisher's whereabouts should
contact Lt. Jim Corder at the
Gadsden County Sheriffs
Office at 875-8847.

Havana hears about juvenile offender alternative


by LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor

It's a movement that started in
Gadsden County in 2005 but
continues to expand: The
Gadsden County Sheriffs Office
Civil Citation Program offers
youthful offenders an opportuni-
ty to avoid jail time.
Henry McGill, coordinator of
the eastern Gadsden County
Neighborhood Accountability
Board, told Havana Town
Council members Tuesday the
program offers hope not just to
juveniles charged with first- and
second-degree misdemeanor
crimes but to the community as a
whole.
"The sheriff has come out and


said he wants no more juveniles
in the juvenile detention system -
there are already far too many,"
McGriff said. "With the civil
citation program, first offenders
ages 9-15 are receiving sanctions
for their actions instead of going
into the juvenile justice system.
If they do well in school and with
their parents, write a 500-word
essay and an apology letter to the
school and the parent, go to a
behavioral health specialist from
3-6. p.m. daily and work
Saturday on work release, then
they can avoid going through the
juvenile justice system."
McGill said he started work-
ing with the civil citation pro-
gram at the beginning of the year.
A former Florida A&M


University police officer and
auxilliary deputy, he helps imple-
ment the program in Midway and
Havana. The program is also in
place in Chattahoochee, Quincy
and Greensboro.
"Most of our children nowa-
days are looking for direction,"
he said. "Ninety percent of
homes have no male figure ...
what the sheriff is saying to us is
please help us keep these young
men from getting in the juvenile
justice system."
Gadsden County Sheriff
Morris Young implemented the
program in October, 2005.
First- and second-time juve-
nile offenders can take a quicker
route through it that through the
criminal justice system, which


has a high rate of recidivism. If
the juvenile commits a third
offense, he or she is no longer eli-
gible for the program.
McGriff said he was recruited
for the program by coordinator
Sgt. Terron Lindsey, but not a lot
of arm-twisting went on.
"It's hard to say no to chil-
dren," he said. "I love the chil-
dren and I love to see them do
well. And this is a good program.
We have too many people who
sit back and relax and don't
worry about the children. I worry
about the children. They are our
future."
For more information, contact
program director Lt. Edward
McWhite at 875-7350; coordina-
tor Tashonda Williams at 875-


8833 or Sgt..Lindsey at 933-
5839.
In other matters Tuesday,
council members voted to table a
resolution calling for the council
to give a letter supporting the
county's attempts to designate
Gadsden Community Hospital as
a critical access hospital.
There is currently no hospital
in Gadsden County; it closed in
2005 after the management
group running it went bankrupt.
The county recently established
an urgent care center in the hos-
pital to treat non-life threatening
medical issues.
Councilman R.L. Miller said
he's not convinced a hospital in
Gadsden County is feasible.
"I don't think Gadsden County


can operate a hospital, frankly. I
don't think they should use tax-
payer money to try to," Miller
said. "What we need is a good,
big clinic."
Councilman David Norman
agreed.
"We couldn't run the hospital
we had," he said.
Miller and other council
members noted that even when
there was a hospital here, most
residents preferred to go to a
Tallahassee hospital.
"I don't feel like many people
are going to say, 'Carry me to
Quincy they want to go to
Tallahassee," Miller said.
In the end, council members
voted to come back to the item at
a later date.


Gretna addresses water concerns


by LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor

Gretna is making strides bit
by bit in overcoming the prob-
lems that have plagued it for
years: Inadequate water and
sewer facilities, dilapidated
roads, exposed and broken
sewage lines and audits left
undone for three years.
Even so, some residents are
without running water in their
homes. There are differing opin-
ions as to why.
"There are so many of them
without water in their homes,"
said Doris Milton, coordinator of
the Gadsden County PACE EH
(Protocol for Assessing
Community Excellence in
Environmental Health). "They
tell me water costs are so high,
all the time. Some of them have
a fixed income they get- a
monthly check and that's it. Like
one gentleman said, you can
only do so much with one check.
There are some poor. pool situda-


tions out there in Gretna."
City Manager Antonio
Jefferson said he thinks less than
10 of the roughly 638 Gretna
residents who use city utilities
are without water, and that water
and sewer service in Gretna are
affordable.
"I don't think it's an issue of
affordability the basic bill is
$14 for water, $15.75 for sewer.
The majority of our customers'
bills are $50 if you include
garbage collection," he said.
"Our rates are staggered, mean-
ing the more you use, the more it
costs. In reality, the rates pro-
mote conservation. There are
638 customers in this utility.
What you've got to do is spread
the cost among those 638. The
cost of providing water and
sewer has gone up, but because
of the (Department of
Environmental Protection) con-
sent order we've been under, the
number of households to spread
that cost across has not."
SThe' tonerit ider put 'a halt


to new construction in the city
until it meets DEP requirements.
The issue came up during a
PACE meeting at City Hall last
week, an informal gathering of
local residents and city and
county government representa-
tives.
"I have talked to a man who
does not have water, many of
them live without water they
take raw sewage and dump it in
their yards," Gretna
Commissioner Helen Franks
said.
But Jefferson said he believes
at least some of the people doing
without running water are doing
so by choice.
"The sticky part of this issue
is, do we put a man out of his
house?" he said. "Yes, we have
people who live this way, but
most of the time it's by choice.
We go in and the electricity is
on, the cable is on."
At the same time; there are
Gretna residents who simply
can't afford to pay their .water


bills, Jefferson said.
"I see citizens once or twice a
week who come in and say, 'I
can't pay.' The backside of that is
we get stuck. Probably to the
tune of $50,000 over a number
of years. And if they choose to
do without it, you can put them
out of their house, but where do
they go?"
Fixed income elderly or dis-
abled residents were not affected
by a water and sewer bill
increase that took effect in 2003,
Jefferson said.
"People that you hear these
horror stories from have leaks
they haven't paid attention to.
Unfortunately, perception is
reality," he said. "If you look at
our rates as compared to Talquin,
Quincy, Chattahoochee, etc.,
we're in line. For folks who are
not able.to pay their bill, we set
up a payment plan. They don't
make their payment, don't make
their payment, and we have to
cut them off. It's not fair to the
other customers."

Sanders murder trial gets under way


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

Jeremiah "Jerry" Sanders,
they say, was about as nice of a


guy as you could find. A veteran
Gadsden County Road and
Bridge Department employee,
the 39-year-old man was well
liked.


A good as he was, however, it
didn't stop brothers Tracy
Wright, 16, and Earl Moore, 22,
along with their first cousin, 17-
year-old Norman Winbush, Jr.


from allegedly killing Sanders
in May 2005. All three were
arrested and charged with first-
degree murder after Sanders'
partially decomposed body was
found stuffed in the trunk of his
car outside his doublewide
mobile home on McDaniel
Circle.
The small mobile home park
in which he lived was located
west of Quincy, off State Road
12, just past Douglas City.
Testimony in the trial started
Tuesday morning as Asst. State
Attorney John Hutchins called
several witnesses to the stand to
describe the crime scene.
But the most damaging testi-
mony came Tuesday afternoon
when Winbush took the stand to
testify how Moore talked for at
least three days before about
robbing and killing Sanders.
"That Friday, Saturday, and
Sunday Earl brought up about
killing Jeremiah," he told the
12-member jury. He said on the
Sunday night that Sanders was
killed, Moore went home early
to stake out Sanders' home to
see who was "coming and
going."
He said that late Sunday


night the brothers came and
knocked on his door first and
then the window and asked him
to come out to assist in putting
Sanders' body in the trunk.
Initially, he thought it was a joke
but, he said, when he got outside
Sanders' body was almost in the
trunk except for a leg that stuck
out.
"They told me to push the leg
in and I touched it and jumped
back. I was in shock. I couldn't
move. That was a dead body,
man" Winbush testified, before
breaking down on the witness
stand and sobbing for several
minutes.
He said that he had no idea
how Sanders died until Wright
told him while they both were in.
the county jail charged with the
murder.
"In jail he said he choked him
until he fell out and then he
choked him again," Winbush
said.
According to reports filed at
the time the three were arrested,
Wright who was a minor, admit-
ted that he was the one actually
killed Sanders.
The three allegedly then tied
telephone cord around Sanders'


neck and attempted to tie him to
the ceiling fan to make it look
like suicide. That didn't work
and at some point the decision
was made to bind him with his
own neckties and wrap him in
bed linens before taking him
outside.
Winbush said he went back
inside his house, only a few feet
from where Sanders' body was
stuffed in the trunk. He told
defense attorney Adam Ruiz that
he didn't call the police because
he was concerned about the wel-
fare of the women and children
in the trailer park.
When he went to school the
following Monday and Tuesday,
he said he didn't tell the school
resource officer.
The three were arrested
Wednesday after a woman
called Sheriff Morris Young to
say that she might have been the
last person to see Sanders' alive,
other than the killerss. The
woman identified Moore,
Wright, and Winbush by name.
The trial is expected to last
through late Wednesday.
Hutchins said the state is not
seeking the death penalty in the
case.

The Gadsden County Times March 29,2007 9


Auditor a no-show at meeting


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
A meeting out of town appar-
ently slipped the mind of the
City of Qunicy's auditor and
prevented Ronald Thompkins of
Watson and Rice from attending
the city commission meeting
Tuesday night. He promised two
weeks ago to attend the meeting
and give commissioners the sta-
tus of 2005 audit.
"He forgot that he had a
meeting in Washington, D.C.


this week but he promised to be
at the April 10 meeting," said
Bill Bogan, city manager.
For months, commissioners
have asked Bogan, when the
audit would be ready. Finally,
last month, Mayor Sherrie
Taylor said she wanted the audi-
tor at the meeting.
But when he showed up he
had no firm date in mind as to
when the report would be ready.
When forced to give an answer,
Thompkins said he anticipated
the audit would be ready three


weeks from the March 13 meet-
ing.
He explained that the reason
for the delay was due mainly to
city (finance department) staff
not giving them information in a
timely manner.
Employees have been unable
to find needed records to recon-
cile the books.
"We are the ones who hired
you, why haven't you reported
this to us?" Taylor asked. She
said she wanted Thompkins to
begin coming to commission


meeting on a regular basis and
to keep the members of the com-
mission informed.
Commissioners Finley Cook
and Derrick Elias said they
would like to go forth with the
current budget but that they are
unable to make desicions for the
future when the city is still two
audits behind.
So, for the next two weeks at
least, Quincy commissioners
will remain the the dark about
the audit reports, despite their
protests.


Chandler to Chair Relay for Life


Doris Sykes Chandler, the
2007 Honoree for the Relay for
Life is a thirty-year survivor of
breast cancer. Mrs. Chandler
has not only fought cancer her-
self, she has lost her husband
and two of her five children to
cancer. Another daughter is a
sixteen-year survivor.
"We have a decision to make.
We can focus on our troubles or


we can focus on our blessings,"
Mema told the family.
The Chandler family chose
to focus on their blessings. The
disease has actually brought the
family together in many ways.
The 4-generations of Chandlers
all get together at least once
each year.
Their times together have
included trips to Gatlinburg,


Thanksgivings at Lake
Seminole camping out and
roasting a pig, Christmases at
Mema's, and trips to the beach.
Our hope and joy did not die
with the disease, instead, our
hope and joy comes from God.
"For I consider that the suffer-
ings of this present time are not
worthy to be compared with the
glory which shal be revealed in


us" has become our hope and
source of joy (Romans 8:18).
The Chandler family invites
you to join us on April 20, 2007,
at the MLK Track Field for this
year's Relay for Life. this is.just
one way our family can say
"thank you" for all the ways
Quincy and the medical com-
munity has encouraged us
throughout the years.

GATORS RETURN TO FINAL
FOUR


Atlanta will be decked out in orange
and blue this week-end. The Florida


Gatoits \ ill make a quest 1t w in back to
back NCAA Men's Basketball
Championship in the Georgia Dome
Saturday. and Monday.
I pIomlse \ou theie will be caravan's
of Gators covering 1-75 to 'Hotlanta' hop-
ing to get a ticket.
11 Florida loses to UCLA Saturda\
the bu,,iness foi Atlanta Won't be the
same as orange and blue will be hard to
find Sunday and MNonday.
I'm picking tie Gator; against UCLA
Satuida and figuring Ohio State will
beat Geoigetown in Saturday's other
semi-final game setting up a billing of
Flonda and Ohio State for the basketball
crown like it was for the football crown.
Like in the football game. Ohio State
,will probably hold an early lead. The


Gators will v. ake up and bounce back to
win it all again.
I think Florida had an easier road to
the Final Four than the other teams did.
\\hen it comes to net cutting time this
bunch finds a way. As the announcers
ha\e said sou have to pick Nour poison
with Flornda. Guard the perimeter and let
Hoiford, Noah. or Richards kill \ou.
Guard the inside and let Green or
Humphrey spank ou \ ith three's. Then
theie's Brewiet, going inside. outside or
mid-range. Offensively they're just hard
to handle. It's w hen they decide to step it
up on defense that they're extremely
lethal.
By the \wa in last week's column I

Seniors make visit to Arts Center


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

It was a special treat for the
20 or more Gadsden County
senior citizens who took a spe-
cial "field trip" to the Gadsden
Arts Center last Friday morn-
ing.
For some, it was the first
time they had been inside the
gallery which some call the
finest jewel in Quincy's crown.
They had the gallery and
artist/sculptor Chester Williams
all to themselves.
Williams explained the
orgins of his work and how he
goes from concept to creation.
"My work speaks to me. That's
true. When I'm in my studio at
night it will talk to me. It will
say that it need this or it needs
that. Sometimes I listen and
sometimes I don't," he said to
the delight of his audience.
The current show, called
"African Affinity" is made up
mainly Williams sculptures
because, he said, at this point in
his life he likes to work with his
hands. "I used to do nudes and I
got a lot of money for them, but
that's not what I want to do
now, I'm not going back to
that," he said.
Some of his works reflected
his past, growing up as the son


Katie Baker's favorite piece in the Chester Williams collection was "Mother of the Church."

of a minister. "We were in
church all of the time. Can't you
see in "Mother of the Church"
someone who is in your
church?"
Before the tour he talked for
a few minutes about collecting.


A friend of his, he recalled,
started collecting primitive arts
years ago and when she decided
to sell it, it was worth a million
dollars.
"Always keep those art
peices you have because they


will only increase in value," he
advised.
"'We were so pleased to have
them today and hopefully we
will continue to do more," said
Tricia Collins, executive direc-
tor at the center.


School board recognizes contributions


by LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor

During the regular Gadsden
County School Board meeting
Tuesday, the board took care of
routine business and recognized
several area residents for their
contributions to the school sys-
tem.
The board also turned down a
request from a mother whose
child attends, George Munroe
Elementary to transfer to a Leon
County School, saying the
request did not meet board crite-
ria.
Vickie Lillo told board mem-
bers her job of 20 years is in
jeopardy because it's difficult
for her to get to work in
Tallahassee on time after drop-
ping her child off at a Gadsden
County school. Schools general-
ly don't allow children to be
dropped off before 7:30 a.m.
"We have no family here the
only day care nearby is full, and
I can't drop him off before 7:30
a.m.," she said. "I need to be
able to.work. I have a good job,
and I don't want to leave it."
But Board Chairman Isaac
Simmons said her request didn't
comply with School Board regu-
lations, as board member Judge
Helms reiterated.
Helms suggested Lillo talk to
James about the possibility of
dropping off her child earlier or


working out some other solu-
tion.
"We certainly want to keep
your son in our schools," he
said. "I understand you want to
get to work on time, but I can't
vote for something that is
against policy."
The board voted unanimous-
ly to deny the request.
In other matters, the board
voted to approve several resig-
nations, retirements, leaves of
absence and terminations as rec-
ommended by Schools
Superintendent Reginald James,
as well as several bills and
vouchers recommended for
approval.
The board also recognized'
three men who donated a total of
$1,155 to the School Board to be
used for the purchase of school
uniforms for families facing
financial hardships.
In a letter to the board, Fred
Anderson Jr. of Anderson &
Anderson CPA wrote, "...on
March 3, 2007 a few of my col-
leagues and I hosted; a local
Mardi Gras Ball in an effort to
generate proceeds to support
Gadsden families who may be
experiencing financial hardships
in complying with the uniform
mandate. One of my colleagues,
Bruce James, and his con-
stituents made an in-kind contri-
bution by catering the memo-
rable event and sales from the


Mardi Gras masks generated a
financial contribution of $155 to
support secondary uniforms."
Don Gibson of Don's Hair
Pair and his constituents con-
tributed $200 to support the sec-
ondary uniform initiative and
Fred Anderson Jr. and his firm
contributed $800.
In other business, the board:.
Approved comprehensive
fire safety, sanitation and casual-
ty inspections for each school
with the listed corrective actions
required and the dates by which
they are to be completed.
Approved the superinten-
dent's recommendation to enter
a contractual agreement with
Investing in Our Youth Inc. for
its 21st Century Community
Learning Center Project at a cost
of $25,000. The contract runs
through June 30, 2011 and is
contingent on funding from the
state Department.of Education.
Approved a technology plan
for 2007 that will lead to paper-
less School Board meetings,
among other things.
Voted to expel a student
charged with possession of
drugs.
Voted to expel a student
charged with assault on a School
Board employee.
Approved a change order
for the West Gadsden High
School construction project in
the amount of $2,918.10.


Approved a change order
for the WGHS construction
project in the amount of
$49,938.
Approved School Board
rule 2.25, which outlines the job
descriptions for an exceptional
student education specialist, the
director of the character educa-
tion initiative, a character edu-
cation program specialist, a
character education staff assis-
tant, an assistant comptroller

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


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


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

Tallavana student spends Spring break with paint brushes


by LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor
Thile some area
students spent
spring break at
the beach or in the mall,
Candace Allen spent most
of hers in a doctor's office.
Fortunately, she's feeling
fine she spent her week at
Dr. Charles Kent's office in


Quincy painting murals on
the walls of one of the
patient rooms.
"Candace is a patienthere,
and nurse practioner Kay
Finlaw has themes in her
rooms one is flowers, the
other is an Alaskan theme.
She asked Candace to do a
room -, told her she could
pick the theme," said
Shawn Brown, group
coordinator for Finlaw and


Dr. Kent. "It makes patients
feel like they're not just
another patient here."
- Candace, 15, has been a
patient of Dr. Kent's since
she was three months old.
She's been drawing pictures
for him and his staff as long
as she's been able to hold a
crayon, Finlaw said,
drawing pictures on the
paper covering the exam
tables. Staff members saved


the pictures on put them on
display around the office.
"She is just a lovely,
lovely young lady. Candace
has been drawing pictures
for us forever when she
was waiting, she's draw us
a picture," Finlaw said. "We
recently were able to
repaint our rooms and
decided to decorate them.
She drew the murals
freehand she got in hure
and this was her own
world."
Candace chose wild
horses as a theme for the
room she painted, studying
drawings and sketching the
horses out in pencil on the
walls.
One wall features a mare
and foal with a bald eagle
flying high above.
Another features two
horses playfully kicking up
their heels.
"When I first started the
mural, I was thinking, 'Oh
my goodness' oh, I was
scared. Then it started
looking pretty good,"
Candace said.
"I was real happy with it. I


just hope I can do a lot
more murals I just love
them."
For the doctor's office
murals, Candace chose to
use latex paint and mixed
five colors to get the colors
she wanted.
Candace's mother, Sandra
Allen, said her daughter
developed a delight for
drawing at an early age.
"At the doctor's office,
when she would sit and
wait, she'd draw," she .said.
"She draws at home, at
school, at church."
Candace said she was
initially reluctant to give up
her spring break to draw the
murals.
Now she's glad she did.
But while her mother has
supported her love of art,
the Tallavanna Christian
sophomore doesn't expect
that of her other interest -
horses.
"I like horses a lot, and we
live near the livestock
pavilion, so I.see a lot of
horses," she said.
"But I don't think I'll be
getting one soon."

April Fools Day, or All %Iis Fool s Day. is a holiday Q- m*irm asvU W I.,U l

Fool's Day is called Poisson'd Avril, in French, and means April Fish. This name WADRBJ KFV

the god Attis, and was said to be called the "Roman laughing day". It was Y VX T H 0 A N S B HC I NV Z Y VW C
celebrated in the beginning of April, and is still observed today. In India, the Z A U M C E YD 0 T S L A I T L R M T H

festival, people smeared different colors on each other as another tradition. There .X Y S M L 0 S E A W L E A G P G F U B April Fish
is no doubt that the beginning of spring in many cultures is a time of laughter, April Fool's Day
merriment, and celebration. Today, in Scotland April Fool's are called April Gowks, F DE 0 H L V Q I A S T J U X Attis D

Mayor's Humanitarian Award
(Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
Commission). She was also the
2003 recipient of this award.

mote among youth Dr. Martin
Luther King, Jr.'s legacy of
equality, justice, freedom,
peace and harmony for all peo-
ple identifying and recognizing
peer role models. Mayor Buddy

delivered personally to her by
Mr. Anderson himself). Mr.

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

Their names were Alexander Graham Bell and
Thomas Alva Edison. Thanks to Bell, people's
voices travel around the world. Thanks to
Edison, we bathe in the soft glow of electric
lights, watch movies, and listen to records.

When he was fifteen, Alexander knew he would
follow his father's example by teaching the
deaf, and he later taught at the
Boston School for Deaf Mutes.
Across the ocean in America,
fifteen-year-old Thomas was
beginning a career as a tele-
graph operator for Western

When Alexander was twenty-

Canada. At twenty-three,

Thomas Edison patented the incandescent
light bulb, which continues to be used today.

Both men converted their discoveries into per-
sonal fortunes. Bell, the majority owner of Bell
Telephone, allowed others to run the company.
Edison started an electric company to deliver
electricity to homes, thereby creating a market
for his invention; Today, that
company has become General

patent for an electronic voting machine. When
no one would buy it, he decided to restrict his
future inventing to products with commercial
possibilities.

Shortly after arriving in Canada, Bell moved to
Boston to teach, using his spare time to solve
the riddle of transmitting speech. He spent his
summers in Brantford, where he worked full
time on the telephone. Finally, he solved the
riddle in 1875, and received a patent for the
telephone on March 7,1876.

By 1876, America knew Edison as a prolific
inventor of telegraph equipment. After open-
ing a workshop in Menlo Park, New Jersey, he
turned his attention to the electric light bulb.
Four years after Bell patented the telephone,


With his wealth, Bell pursued a
broad range of interests,
including building an airplane
in 1909, and a hydrofoil in
1919. In 1898, he became
President of the National
Geographic Society, and was
the driving force behind start-
ing the National Geographic


Magazine. His death from diabetes in 1922
occurred just before Frederick Banting discov-
ered insulin.

Edison continued inventing. His later develop-
ment of the phonograph and moving pictures
effectively created modern entertainment.
When he died in 1931, President Herbert
Hoover asked Americans to honor him with a
