Commissioners clash over spending


Trip to Arizona, moving expenses for county manager questioned


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
The Board of County
Commission meeting got
more than a little heated
Tuesday night, as three issues
caused heated exchanges and
harsh words, mostly between
Commissioners Ed Dixon and
Doug Croley, about money.
At one point, Commission
Chairman Brenda Holt,
banged her gavel and called
for order as the arrows and
slings went back and forth


between Dixon and Croley.
"We have an officer back
there and I have no problem
with him escorting anyone out
of this room, including
commissioners," Holt said,
bringing the meeting back to
order.
Early in the meeting Croley
asked to remove two items
from the consent agenda for
further discussion. The
consent agenda is usually a
group of issues that
commissioners agree can be
passed without discussion.


To pre-empt any discussion,
Dixon made a motion to pass
the consent agenda and
Commissioner Derrick Price
seconded it. Croley then
requested that the items be
pulled for discussion but
Dixon pushed his motion
through to call for a vote. At
that time the vote was called
and Dixon, Holt, and Price
voted to pass the consent
agenda.
Later, after much whispering
from County Attorney
Thornton Williams, Dixon

said that he had not acted in
the best interest of the BoCC
and then apologized and
withdrew his motion, This
gave Croley and
Commissioner Eugene Lamb,
who listened to the
proceedings and voted by
telephone, a chance to discuss
the two issues.
The first issue was the
matter of travel expenses by
Dixon to attend the National
Forum of Black Public
Administrators in Phoenix,
AZ. Croley asked of what


benefit would the forum be of
citizens to the county.
Dixon said it was a meeting
attended by professionals who
had very definite ideas about
how to solve problems in
communities such as Gadsden
County.
But Croley said he
wondered if the price tag for
the trip, $2,185 was worth it
to the citizens. Also attending
the forum will be County
Manager Marlon Brown and

School chief: Changes

in the wind for school
By LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor

Citing a need for a shift in emphasis at East Gadsden
High School, Gadsden County Schools Superintendent
Reginald James said Tuesday he is replacing Principal
William Harvey.
"There are going to be a number of changes at East
Gadsden next year, both administratively and
academically," James said. "We will no longer use the
block schedule and will move to a six-period day."
Harvey, who has 39 years of teaching experience in
physical education, science and history and 32 years at
the administrative level, will work at EGHS through
April 20.
"My reason for making a change in leadership is that
I need a leader who can implement the school
improvement plan," James said. "My main concern is I
feel we can do a better job of implementing that model.
I need more of a facilitative leader. I think the school
has real potential and there are wonderful instructors
there. We've done a lot of research on that model and it
is the one that will be most successful in getting us
where we want to be."
James declined to name Harvey's replacement
Tuesday, but did say one has been chosen.

Couple striving for peace through exhibit


By LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor
If you've been to the Havana
Public Library recently, you may
have noticed an exhibit featuring
a bust of Dr. Martin Luther King
Jr. and reading materials related
to peace and justice.
- The exhibit is a result of the
kind of quiet handiwork Charles
and Virginia Coultas have
practiced more than 50 years in
hopes of helping make the world


a more peaceful place to live.
"It's been an interest of ours
through the years," said Virginia,
who sculpted the bust of Dr.
King.
"It's a religious issue," Charles
elaborated. "We were members
of First Presbyterian in
Tallahassee and have since joined
the Quakers. But the turning
point for us was finding out about
the Koinonia Farm in Americus,
Ga. A Baptist preacher started
this community who express


purpose was to create a
community where people live the
gospel every day. Clarence
Jerdan started it in 1942 .... We
later visited the farm, which was
the birthplace of Habitat for
Humanity."
The couple is bothered by
increasing violence personal,
national and international and
decided to set up an exhibit at the
Havana Library to get people to
think about alternatives to
violence. Inscribed on a plaque


on the bust Virginia made is a
quote from Dr. Martin Luther
King Jr.: "We must all learn to
live together as brothers or perish
as fools."
The exhibit focuses on personal
peacemaking within individuals,
homes and communities. Also on
display is a plaque with the
names of 10 students who were
awarded the Dr. Martin Luther

domestic violence disturbance
call at the Oaks Apartments east
of Chattahoochee.
Inside the apartment, officers
located chemicals consistent with
the manufacture of
methamphetamine. '
Lt. Jim Corder of the GCSO
said an investigation revealed
that Uscio had been "cooking"
meth for sometime and was
selling some of his finished
product.


Other items, and drug
paraphernalia, were found in the
apartment that are used in the
consumption of meth.
"Uscio is a convicted felon with
a long history of drug violations
and convictions," Corder said.
He is currently in the County
Jail on $85,000 bond.
If anyone has information
regarding suspicious or drug
activity is asked to call Lt.
Corder at 875-8847 or 251-5519.


Investigators sort through
evidence of a meth lab
confiscated during the arrest of
Brian Uscio last week.

High School, Quincy Educational
Center and Gadsden Technical-
Institute on Saturday, May 19,2007 at
6 p.m. The meeting will be held at
815 Selman Road in Quincy. PleaSe

"I've identified that person, and
I'll be working with that person to
make sure the school is where it
should be," he said.
Anticipating a tight budget for
the 2007-2008 school year, James
is making other personnel changes
within the district, including the
replacement of current Food
Service Director Tom Hollern.


"One of the problems we have in
food service is we have over the
last three or four years not been
able to stay within our budget,"
James said.
"When I took office, the food
service budget was $600,000 in the
hole. Unfortunately, we haven't
been able to make the type of
progress I would have liked over


the past few years."
Holler was named food service
director July 1, 2005.
He hired on in Gadsden County
after retiring from the Ohio
Department of Education's Office
of School Management Assistance
and also served a stint as food
service director of Leon County
schools.


Hollern taught food and nutrition
and dietician's courses at. Virginia
Tech in the mid-'70s.
James said he hopes to find a
replacement relatively soon.
"I'm looking for someone who
can provide quality meals and stay
within our budget," he said. "Last
year, we exceeded our budget.
When we do that it takes dollars


and funding from construction and
other important projects. I will be
consolidating a lot of positions and
eliminating some. I need to do that
because I anticipate a tight budget
year, and I have to have a way to
push that money to the classroom,
to teachers and students, where it
needs to go. I need to create
funding to provide more resources


COUNTY from Page 1


Community Development
Director Farnita Saunders, for all
three the bill to taxpayers is a
little over $6,500.
"This is a conference of higher
thinkers and (shared) knowledge
is solution-oriented. It's a very
hands-on look at situations that
plague counties like Gadsden.
We have issues happening to us
and not in the environment
around us," Dixon said.
Croley also added that Brown's
contract does not provide for him
to attend out of state conferences.
Lamb agreed with Croley that
Brown and Saunders shouldn't
traveling to the forum at county


expense.
"Farnita Saunders is going to be
a presenter and that's a very
prestigious honor," Holt said.
The travel was approved by
Dixon, Holt, and Price.
Secondly, Croley said he didn't
think the county should pay
$4,730.84 for the county
manager to move from
Tallahassee to Havana. He
referenced a letter written in
2005 stating the county would
assist the manager in his move.
By law, the manager must live in
Gadsden County or must move
here in a reasonable time. He was
hired two years ago.,


Croley said that the letter was
replaced, with Brown's very
lucrative contract and that he
should be able to pay his own
moving expenses.
"He should bear those costs
himself, not the public," Croley
said.
"This is such hypocrisy. You
whine about him not living in the
county and it makes no sense for
you to sit here and play," Dixon
told Croley.
Lamb said he would be willing
to pay half of Brown's moving
expenses but not the entire
amount.
Holt said she would vote to pay


the moving expenses only
because she didn't want the
county to be sued for not living
up to the 2005 letter promising to
assist in the move. Dixon, Holt
and Price voted for the measure.
Croley and Lamb opposed it.
Thirdly, Dixon asked that the
Boys and Girls Clubs be added to
the agenda. Brown had been
asked to meet with all of the
municipalities and find out if
they would be willing to spend
$37,500 for the next seven years
to help the county establish the
clubs with the help of the Big
Bend Boys and Grils Clubs,
based in Tallahassee.


The organization requires a
commitment of $75,000 annually
for seven years, to come into a
community.
Brown said none of the cities
and ,municipalities accepted the
invitation to join the county. The
proposal, by Dixon, was to open
two clubs somewhere in the
county.
Dixon said the county cannot
afford not to have the clubs
because the county is losing its.
children. He said there are 161
truant (school age) children in
the county who are walking the
street. These kids, he said, end up
in the court system. Locally he
said the clubs are supported by
the Sheriff, the Public Defender's
Office, the Superintendent of
Schools, and the State Attorney.
"I don't see any documentation
saying that they support this,"


for the classroom. One of the
things I have been able to do over
the last three years is reduce the
number of administrators from 64
to 58. My plan this year is-
reduce even more. Going to
paperless board meetings is
$5,000-$10,000 saved. Tie
handwriting is on the wall, and its
going to be a tight budget year."





Croley said flipping through the
background information. "If
they're all supporting this, thon
why haven't they written letters
to say this is what they want?"
Croley asked.
But Dixon told Croley that lie
would rather build jails that
support the clubs. "You wete
ready to spend $12 million on a
new pod at the jail, weren't you?"
Dixon asked Croley.
Several times during tie
meeting both Dixon and Holt
referred to Croley as thinkiiig
like is predecessor, Sterlitig
Watson.
"I respect each of you for who
you represent and I was elected.
and I represent citizens as you
,do. There are those who disagree
with the rate spending in this
county," Croley said.

Hli nker down

hIies
.. ~:'... .- 2 \ ......... .
\X hen we hunker down to talk, we're all on the same level. by Kesley
Colbert, just a good ole boy that likes to write.


Millie was not impressed!


A couple of my favorite young people
were talking about the up coming high
school prom. I wish you could have seen
the excitement in their faces. They had
that anticipation of youth that is so
wonderful to behold. They were so "into
it" that'they were actually gushing over
riding to and from the prom in one of
those stretched out long cars.
Two things came immediately to mind.
One was Shag Williston. And the other
was I might could make some money-out
of this prom deal!
I figure with the price of gasoline today
one of those extra long cars would charge
$60.00 or $70.00 to haul a few of the high
school kids over to the dance and back.
Listen, I've got an almost brand new pick-
up truck with a great camper'top! I could
put a few chairs in the back, get me an ice
chest full of Dr. Peppers and I could be in
business quicker than you could say
"cummerbund".
My truck has just slightly over 233,000
miles on it. I'd say it was high time it
started paying for itself. And I've hardly
used the back. With a little sweep out and
some mop and glow I can have that.thing
looking like brand new in no time! One of
the kids mentioned the sun roof on the
extra long cars. Boy, is she in luck, the
right side window on my camper top will
still roll out.
This plan looks fool proof to me!
'Course, that's what Shag said about his
uncle's Ford Falcon back in 1964.
Millicent Blackburn had moved away
from our little town when we were in the
eighth grade. That wasn't a real significant
loss at the time because she couldn't play
second base worth a flip. But by the time
she returned for our junior year she had
grown a little, her ears has shrunk, she had
been de-freckled and she'd gotten rid of
her pig tails and those awful cat-eyed
glasses..... It was like a caterpillar to a
butterfly!
I wanted to ask her to the prom way
back in January. But I didn't have a car. I
didn't have any prospects of obtaining a
car. And, remember, this was back in the
one car family days.....and, believe it or
not, the father decided who got to "use"
the car. Dad was big on employing the
vehicle for grocery shopping, seed hauling
and church going. Frivolous jaunts around
town for our personal pleasure wasn't high
on his list of viable "uses" for our 1960
Chevrolet. Dancing didn't even make the
list at all!
I rolled over my options for a couple of


weeks.'I. could walk to the prom. Good
golly, how juvenile would that look? Plus,
Millie lived even further out of town than
we did. We'd have to start right after
lunch to make it by seven o'clock! I could
take the tractor. But then I would look like
a first class hay-seed. Plus, if she got her
dress caught in the PTO, I'd never live
that down. The mule was always available
but we didn't have a saddle......and that
wouldn't even make hay-seed, first class.
I'was explaining my dilemma after
basketball practice one afternoon when
Shag intervened. He had been ranting and
raving for weeks about Billie Jean
Hartung. Actually, I think he had been in
love with her since the 4th of July picnic
back in the sixth grade when they had
teamed up to win the elementary age sack
race. But Mr. Napoleon Hartung wasn't no
fool! The older Billie Jean got, the more
Mr. Hartung put restrictions on just how
much she could hang around Shag.
If you had known Shag as well as me,
Buddy, Yogi and Ricky Lynn did, you
would realize that Mr. Hartung's caution
was well founded.
"Kes, the only way I can take Billie Jean
to the prom is with a double date." Shag
was formulating a plan. "I tell you what, I
will borrow Uncle Millard's old Falcon
and me and you and Billie Jean and
Millicent can all go to the dance."
My desire to take Millicent out was
a'fixing to overcome my good judgment!
I agreed, counted the days down to the
third week-end in April, put on my
Sunday shirt and my cousin Terrill's blue
serge dress coat and stood out by the road
until Shag picked me up.
"You think this car will get us to town?"
I noticed that Shag had gunned it up in
low gear, hit the clutch-skipped second
and pulled it straight down into high gear.
"Aw man, she's running great. Second
gear is broken, but that's no big deal.
When we pick the girls up I want you to
drive so I can sit in the back with Billie
Jean."
We had the girls, Millicent looked
resplendent in that green dress, and
everything was going great! We were
down on the Shiloh Road where the big
curve turns in front of Mr. Ross
Warmack's place. I was thinking about the
grand entrance we were going to make as

I eyed the thing with horrorwhen he
first loaded it, giving him the benefit of
the doubt maybe he'd be content to
send it sailing over the sofa or
something.
Lord, what a fool this mortal be. Yond
Cassius had a lean and hungry look.
He took aim.
"Son, that's really a toy to play with
out...," I said, Nerfed before I could get
the rest of the sentence out.
He scurried over to retrieve his
weapon, peals of laughter echoing
through the living room.
The dog looked immensely pleased.
My son reloaded and took aim again.
"Look, honey," I started, and FWOP.
Nerfed again.
Eventually though he got frustrated
with the thing, it wouldn't do what he
wanted it to do, he threw it down and
turned to me. And on me.
"You're not my friend anymore," he
says.
Ow, ow ow, ow ow. That's a thing he
picked up at daycare, that and a few
new vocabulary words ("Give me the
freakin' cup," he said shortly after he
started going there, to my utter disdain
and amazement. We had a discussion
about the right way and the wrong way
to ask for things. "PLEASE give me the
freakin' cup," he revised. More work to
be done there.)
There IS something scary about
turning your child loose for the first
time to a roomful of toddlers ready to
challenge his self-esteem and general
concept of life. It's a necessary thing,
learning to fit into a group, I know that,
really I do.
Still. One child in particular seems to
take great delight in making him


uncomfortable. Around Halloween, he
slugged my son in the back and tried to
take the Tigger jacket I'd bought for
him.
I asked my son whether he'd told the
teacher, and he said no, and truthfully,
in dealing with a room full of 20
toddlers a.little light sparring is par for -
the course. I don't think action is
considered until there is bleeding -
make that profuse bleeding or
unconsciousness.
Then I asked my son whether he'd hit
the boy back. He said he did. "Hmmm,"
I said, but what I was thinking was,
"Atta boy." So much for instilling
pacifist traits at least at that moment, I
was keener on teaching him
Mohammed Ali moves. And I am a
very peaceful person. Really.
Sometimes.
I considered writing a note to the
child's mother, but couldn't get past
openings like "Dear Parent of the
Hellion in my son's daycare class" so I
refrained.
Stuff like that just jumps into my
brain and usually works its way out of
my mouth before I can stop it since the
onset of parenthood. Once, at a family
gathering, my then-18-month-old son
offered a seriously soggy, chewed piece
of bread to another kid there, which
caused an adult at the table to say, and I
quote, "Ew, gross."
"He was just trying to be nice," I
snapped curtly.
The words rang in my ears. Where did
THAT come from?
And so it goes.
I guess he's not the only.one going
through a rite of passage. I just hope I
make-it through mine sans straitjacket.

After speaking with several of the county
commissioners I find it high time for the
citizens of Gadsden County to become vocal
yesterday. If any U.S. Senator or
Representative can help us with the reopening
of our hospital I beg of you please do so. That
Critical Access Status is needed for poor people
to get health care in Gadsden County. So I
want all elected officials to know that poor
people vote too.
We do not want our U.S. Representative
Allen Boyd, U.S. Senator Bill Nelson, and
U.S. Senator Mel Martinez to be missing in
action when it comes to the reopening of the
county Hospital. I don't want to see them just
dropping in with fairy tales and taking
photographs. Do these U.S. officials'thiiikwe
are without knowledge or a doormat to be
trampled upon? Please stop attending meetings
with these U.S. Congressmen when they dash
in here and fail to address one of the most
important issues of the county. What we need
is for them to lobby on behalf of the citizens of
Gadsden County. It's iroriicthat these same
U.S. officials can be instruimentalin building
jails, prisons, and wasting billions on Iraq, but
will riot so much as lift a finger to help reopen
the County Hospital. This is vital to every
citizen in this county. It cost about six
thousand dollars to be transported by life flight
to Tallahassee Memorial. This is outrageous,
excessive, and twisting the door knob of
extortion. Be mindful of this, Gadsden County
deserves better they shouldn't have to be
transported to Tallahassee if our U.S.
Congressmen get off their bottoms of doing
nothing and do something. How can you be
supportive of someone that does not support
your health wise? I wonder would they be
more helpful if their children or whole families
lived in Gadsden County?
It is possible that our U.S. Congressmen do
not realize that every second is crucial when
someone is ill, or do they even care? During
election year they portray themselves to us as
Santa, promising if we were good to them at
the polls they would represent us to the fullest.
Shortly after being elected or re-elected they
turn into the Grinch. Fellow citizens this is no
laughing matter lives are at stake, especially the
elderly and critically ill. Call Representative
Allen Boyd at 202-225-5235, Senator Bill
Nelson at 202-224-5274, Senator Mel
Martinez at 202-224-3041, and let them
know, no reopening of the county hospitals,
no votes! Finally fellow citizens if you're not
interested in the lack of medical attention you
are recieving, it is obvious no one else will be.

It has been my privilege to work for
the City of Midway and its residents for
almost five years. Midway is growingfaster
than any of us could have imagined five years
ago, although there are a lot of opinions
about the growth. Suffice to say that without
the growth, there would no longer be a
Midway. Did we expect the growth to
happen as quickly as it did? No. Does the
growth come with a cost? Sure. Increased
traffic, increased demands for services,
inc reased demands on City stafineased
transportation-related problems. There are,
however, plans in progress to solve some of
those problems. The City is in the process of
applying for several different grants to install
traffic signals at the intersections of Martin
Luther King Boulevard and US 90; Flying
J/Commerce Park, and Brickyard Road and
US 90. Road improvements will also be
made on Palmer Road. The City has a grant
to develop a transportation impact fee
ordinance and the Council has the
information to adopt a proportionate fair-
share transportation mitigation ordinance,
which will raise money from new
development to pay a share of off-site road
improvements. The City is in talks with
developers to bridge Monroe Creek, and with
CSX Railway to provide a railroad crossing
on to CR 268 to provide other means of
access in the new subdivisions. We have
approached the State concerning another
Interstate interchange out near the Little
River, and Gadsden County for a road
connecting US 90 to CR 268. While the
interchange may not happen in my lifetime,
it will happen. Hopefully, within the next
year, based on our discussions with
developers, you will have the grocery store,
drug store, restaurants, cleaners and other
retail establishments you want and deserve.
In addition, the City is progressing
with the paving of Central Road which
should be done this year. If there is sufficient
money in the grant, Imani Cirde will also be
paved. Work is progressing on both Hill Top
Park East and Hill Top Park West. The City
should be awarded another $200,000
FRDAP grant to complete Hill Top Park
East this year as the money is currently in the
appropriations bills being considered by the
Legislature.
I want to thank the City Council and
all of the residents and businesses who have
volunteered and worked so hard for your
City. My last day with the City will be May
4, but there will always be a deep place in my
heart for the City of Midway.


Very truly yours,
Pastor Battles Paul A. Piller


r


So parenthood has been the wildest
ride yet.
For one thing, it brought my inner
goofiness, always thinly concealed
anyway, screaming to the forefront. I've
developed a whole new Jerry Lewis-
like group of facial expressions, and a
slapstick sprawl'over toys in the living
room that even Dick Van Dyke would
admire.
But anything goes in the abundantly
active, wildly imaginative universe of
4-year-old. My son has cultivated
several hobbies toy trains, car racing,
during which he makes pretty
convincing big block motor sounds
before tearing off through the kitchen,
and a fondness for house cleaning. His
version of house cleaning involves the
removal of a vitally important item
from the place I parked it to a better,
out-of-sight spot.
This is how my car keys, once wound
up in the freezer and my prescription
sunglasses languished for a year in a
little-used cabinet in the entertainment
center. His newest hobby is firing the
trigger-propelled Nerf rocket someone
other than me bought him around
Easter.
I may be only occasionally clever but
I'm not serially stupid.
I well know the hazards of arming a
4-year-old with such a weapon;
immediately the unspoken
understanding that it was me, not the
dog or anybody else, who was walking
around with an invisible bulls eye on
my forehead.
(He and the dog are buds. In fact, I
think the dog is nearly as amused as my
son when a Nerf rocket traveling at the
speed of light crashes into my head.)

Fight between juveniles results in arrests


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

"If this keeps up, it's going to be a
long summer," said Quincy Police
Chief Gerald McSwain as he surveyed
a crowd of mostly teenagers who had
been spectators during a fight at
Jackson Heights Park.
It all started when police officers
were called to Carter-Parramore
Academy in reference to a large fight
just before early release for students.
"When we arrived they all scattered
running into Gadsden Arms
Apartments in the surrounding neigh-
borhoods.The second call we got was


about the fight at Jackson Heights Park.
There were about 15 juveniles involved
in that one," said QPD Inv. Delwyn
Hall.
Officers said the teens used bats,
sticks and golf clubs during the alterca-
tion that drew five Quincy Police offi-
cers and as many Gadsden County
Sheriffs Office deputies to break up the
fracas.
EMS was called to administer first
aid to the wounded. One police officer
said he observed a medium-sized open
wound above the right eye of one the
teens that was bleeding heavily. On
another, he saw a large amount of
swelling on the forehead.


Two teenage boys were charged
with aggravated battery with intent to
inflict great bodily harm.
Witnesses to the incident was sever-
al boys sitting at the Jackson Heights
Park when several young men
approached them and said they wanted
to fight one of the boys.
McSwain said the juveniles were
hesitant to reveal information about the
fight and were not forthcoming with
names. "I can't get him to tell who did
this to him. He says he doesn't know,"
McSwain said.
The problem, he said, is that young
people then try to take the law into their
own hands and retaliate at a later date.


Three arrested after crime spree in western Gadsden


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

It was, a bad night for some
residents in the western part of the
county. But when the dust settled,
three people had been charged
with attempted first-degree mur-
der and home invasion robbery.
All are in the Gadsden County
Jail without bond.
Those arrested were: Gregory
Earl Jackson, 32; Becky Darlene
Jacobs, 25; and Christina
McKeown, 24.


According to a report released
by the Gadsden County Sheriffs
office the crime spree started
Sunday afternoon just before 5:30
when a young woman knocked
on the door of five Hispanic
males and said she had some
oranges to sell. When the men
refused, the woman left the home.
Later she returned, this time
she was accompanied by two men
and another female. The two men
got out of a dark colored Honda,
rushed on the proch and forced
their way into the residence. One


of the men was armed with a
knife while the other had a hand-
gun.
The two men attempted to rob
the victims and, when they fought
back, one was beaten about the
head by the Suspect carrying the
handgun. Another victim who
resisted was.stabbed in the side by
the suspect carrying the knife. He
received "life threatening"
injuries and was transported to the
hospital. The others in the home,
the report-stated, -refused-medical
treatment.


But that was only the begin-
ning.
Around 9 p.m. when, a home-
owner returned home to find that
his home on Guy Lane had been
burglarized. Among the items
missing were two DVD players,'a
VCR, and a television.
The owner of the Honda called
authorities to report that her vehi-
cle had been stolen from her
home in the Sawdust
Community. "The victim stated
that her son stole her vehicle
hours before the crime spree,"


according to the report.
Little after 9:30 p.m. a deputy
received a call in reference to
another home invasion, this time
in Grensboro. Victims said they
were at home having dinner when
the suspects entered their home
and ordered them to lie on the
floor.
.'When the victim refused the
invaders demand for money and
resisted. he too was beaten about
the head % ith a handgun. The sus-
pects fled the residence with
about $300.


The dark colored Honda was
identified again as the vehicle
used.
Authorities were notified that
the suspects might be in the
Chattahoochee area.
After an exhaustive search for
the, vehicle by GCSO and the
Chattahoochee Police Deprtment,
the vehicle was located at Jacobs'
home, 110 Hickory Street, where
the trio was arrested after the
house was surrounded. The inves-
tigation is continuing and more
arrests are expected.

Starting young: Teen date violence


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

"In a study of high school
juniors and seniors, the percent-
age of students who have been
perpetrators or victims of actual
(dating) violence was 26.9 %,
roughly 1 in 4," from a brochure
on Teen Dating Violence in
1986.
"Unfortunately, that trou-
bling statistic may be even high-
er now," said Karnell Jones,
Refuge House coordinator for
Gadsden County.
Jones said teenagers need to
be educated and taught to identi-
fy dating violence in order to
stop it. Thursday, April 26, from
5 p.m. to 7 p.m. at Corry Field
(across from James A. Shanks
Middle School) a "Speakout
Against Dating Violence" will
1be held.
"Cadillac Joe" Nelson has
:volunteered to DJ the party that
-in addition to music and dancing,
'will offer information on teen
dating violence. Refreshments
will also be served.
"This is the first time we're
'tried using a speakout specially
-aimed at teens and prevention. It
'will be fun for them but with a
very, very serious message,"
Jones said.
The Gadsden County
Domestic Violence and Sexual
Abuse Task Force has also part-
nered with the Gadsden County
'Sheriffs Office to sponsor the
"event.
"Anything that we can do to
'stop teenagers from abusing
'each other is a help. If we can
-address the problem early, as
'we're doing with this .speakout,
'it will make my job easier," said
'Sheriff Morris Young.
Jones said, and Young
;agreed, teen dating violence is
Soften the prerequisite to adult
:domestic violence. "Many times
-in counseling we find that adult
Victims were also teenage vic-
tims of violence. We feel that
proper education and providing
*the teens with the proper infor-
- nation will help," she said.
Also, according to Jones,


Dater's Billof Rights

> I have the right to express my opinions and have them be
respected.
> I have the right to refuse a date without feeling guilty.
> I have the right not to take responsibility for my boy/girl-
friend's behavior.
> I do not have to act macho.
> I may choose not to act seductively.
> If I do not want physical closeness, I have the right to say
no.
> I have the right to start a relationship slowly, to say "I want

abused.


spring and summer are peak
months for teen dating violence,
teen rape and other acts of vio-
lence.
"Teens tend to go out a little
more this time of year. For some
it will be a first date such as the
prom or other spring dances that
may or may not be school relat-
ed. This speakout is a way for us
to reach as many, teenagers as
possible at one time with our
message that. dating violence is
wrong," Jones said.
Here are tips for teenagers to
consider. You may be abused if:
you are frightened, of your
-"-boy/girlfriend's temper
you often agree because
you are afraid to hurt your
boy/girlfriend's 'feelings or are
afraid of your boy/girlfriend's
anger
you have the urge to rescue
your boy/girlfriend when he or
she is in trouble.
you find yourself apologiz-
ing to: yourself or to others for,
your boy/girlfriend's behavior
you have been hit, kicked..


shoved or had things thrown at
you by%.your boy/girlfriend when
he or she is angry or jealous
made plans or decisions
about activities and' friends
according to what your boy/girl-
friend wants or how your part-
ner will react
your boy/girlfriend embar-
rasses you in front of others
your boy/girlfriend insist
you have sex even when you are
uncomfortable about it
(in some cases) you have
been abused as a child or seen
other abused by her husband or
boyfriend
Jones said that some teens
don't recognize the-signs of an
abuser and, therefore, do not
believe they fit into that catego-
ry. You may be an abuser if you:
are jealous and possessive
sulk silently when upset
have an explosive temper
criticize or put down your
boy/girlfriend a lot
have difficulty expressing
.feelings '
are protective of- your


boy/girlfriend to the point of
controlling
control your boy/girlfriends
behavior, friends, and decisions
have broken things, thrown
things at your boy/girlfriend, hit,
shoved, or kicked him .or her
when angry
Jones said that surveys show
that abuse in dating relation-
ships is prevalent. "About one in
three females will experience
violence at the hands of their
boyfriends before they reach
adulthood," she said.
"Dating violence is remark-
ably similar to marital violence.
Victims dating their batterers
experience the similar patterns
of power and control as those in
abusive marriages ad dating vio-
lence can be just a lethal;" Jones
said.
If you believe you are
involved in an abusive relation-
shjp, call the Refuge House hot-
line and talk to a telephone at: 1-
800-500-1119. All services are
private and confidential.

P & Z board OKs proposal despite protests


by LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor

Despite the protests of sever-
S al landowners who live adjacent
to a proposed 1,141-acre subdi-
vision, the Gadsden County
Planning and 'Zoning
Commission gave approval to a
:conceptual plat for the develop-
ment.
The conceptual plat is
i offered early in the process as a
General explanation of what a
developer intends to do; later in
the process, the plan becomes
more detailed with the addition
of studies on water and soil, for
example.
The Plantations at Foxchase
Subdivision developer is pro-
posing 167-183 single-family
homes on the acreage, which.
abuts the City of Gretna and is
bordered by Glory road and
Shade Farm Road.
Residents of The Farms at
Quincy say they're concerned
about the possibility of untreat-
ed water leeching into the
aquifer and the extra traffic the
subdivision would bring.
"We think there's been a sub-
stantial type of change to
Gretna's sewer system as- it
upgrades," said Bill Hendricks,
who represented the Farms at
Quincy Homeowners'
Association.
"It's our position that we
urge you to protect people who
are downstream. Some adverse
conditions could take place
and we're going to be down-
stream."
SHendricks and others said
- they thought--the subdivision.
Should be on Gretna's sewer
system rather than the proposed
septic tank system.
Patricia Due, who. lives on
STimmons Road, questioned
whether commissioners had
been to the site of the proposed

subdivision,,,Three said they
had.
She also objected to the sep-
tic 'tanks and the traffic that
would be generated by the sub-
Sdivision.
S"I'm concerned about the


Septic tanks, I'm concerned
about the traffic," she said.
"People speed down that road -
we've only had two cars come
through our fence. Perhaps
there has been a study dorie, or
perhaps I should do my own. I
am deeply concerned if we don't
know about the quality of work.
this company has done in some
other place. I don't see how you
can do, this to those of us who
live there and pay taxes."
Charles Edward Hargraves,:
engineer for the'project, said the
developer plans to keep 651
acres or 59 percent of the site
as open space, particularly a
wetland area on the property.
Commissioner Larry
Gainous said a long-time resi-
dent of property adjoining the
site called him to express con-
cerns over the proposed devel-
opment, telling Gainous the
'land- in question is "swamp
land, pretty much."
"Is this overbuilding on a
piece of land to the point where
water flow is going to be a
problem?" he said.
Hargraves said once'..
approval for the conceptual plat
was garnered, his firm would
test water, soil and conduct
other studies on the site to
determine whether water flow
or water treatment might be a
problem.
"There are low areas, they
have seasonal wetlands that dis-
sipate, they have several that
don't dissipate."
Commissioner John Yerkes
said he also is concerned about
the stormwater treatment and
septic tanks proposed in the
conceptual plat. .
"This property here, to me
represents the-problems that are
going on south of Tallahassee in
Wakulla," he said.
"The aquifer her is-hot as
close as it is in Wakulla, where
land is sand over limestone and
filters through drainage fields
and seeps into the aquifer," he
said.
"A ood rain.and vou could


"No sir," Hargraves said.
"But you could canoe part of it."
Commissioners voted to
approve the conceptual plat,
which will move forward to the
Gadsden County Commission
at its April 17 meeting.
Hargraves agreed to meet
with concerned residents to
answer their questions and
describe plans for the subdivi-
sion in more detail.
In other business Thursday
night, commissioners:
)> Approved a final plat for,
San Bonita Farms Subdivision
on a 407-acre parcel on the
north side of Shady Rest Road,
west of the CSX Railroad and
east of Dover Road (County
Road 159). County Commission
was to review the item April 17.
> Approved a
conceptual/preliminary site plan
for a 6,100-foot office expan-
sion for the Northwest Florida
Water Management District
office on a 12.25-acre parcel
north of the City of Midway.
SCounty Commission was to
review the item April 17.

plat for the proposed Oak Mill

8 The Gadsden County Times April 19,2007



Organizers gearing up for 2007 Quincyfest


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

It won't be long before the
smell of barbecue cooking
whets your appetite for some of
the best food in this part of the
country. Add to that some good
ole down home blues and you
hive the makings of Quincyfest
presents Blues and Barbecue
the first weekend in May.
* But before Saturday morning
comes, spend Friday afternoon
and evening downtown to help


kickoff Quincyfest, Latino
style. Friday's events start at 4
p.m. and end at 11. There's a
whole lot packed into those
seven hours however.
There will be bands, music,
food, and dancing all with the
Latin flavor.
"We've expanded this year to
include for Friday. Cinco de
Mayo is on the fifth each year
and we were looking for some-
thing to do on the Friday pre-
ceeding the cookoff and music.
So we felt this was a great


match. We contacted some peo-
ple in the local Hispanic com-
munity and they were excited
about it too," said Quincyfest
co-chairman Michael
O'Halloran.
The Blues and Barbecue part
starts at 10 a.m. Saturday with
sounds of Jamie Eubanks who
will be on stage until 12 noon.
He is followed by Acme
Rhythm and Blues, from 12
noon to 2 p.m. and Eddie
Kirkland and his band will
entertain from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m.


Rounding out the entertainment
with the Juanita Dixon Band.
Throughout the day festival
goers will be able to eat some of
the best ribs, chicken and pork
in this part of the country.
"We're still looking for back-
yard barbecuers to take part in
the festival. It's an excellent
way for organizations to raise
money and for individuals to
grill for bragging rights, tro-
phies, and prize money. There's
$4,000 in prize money to be
given away," he said.


To participate, pick up an.
application from Sylvia Hicks
at Quincy City Hall or go online
at Quincyfest.com
About 20 professional cooks,
members of the Florida
Barbecue Association, are
expected to begin arriving in
town Friday afternoon. "The
professional alley is located on
Washington Street at Monroe,"
said Stuart Johnson.
In addition to the main
attraction there will be a Kid's
Alley at the Gadsden Arts


Center, a Classic car Show on
Washington Street between
Duval and Madison Streets as
well as a Arts and Crafts Show
and Sale.
"We're tried to expand each
year to include a different ele-
ment and we've done that,"
O'Halloran said.
Bring your lawn chairs and
blankets, a healthy appetite and
lean back to hear some good
music.
But leave your pets at home
please.

time


Greensboro

celebrates

history of

railroad

By LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor

Jeanette Sweeney was one of
50 or so who braved bone-chilling
wind in Greensboro Spnday after-
noon to celebrate the centennial of
the Apalachicola Northern
Railroad.
It's personal for her.
"My grandmother, Sally Tolar
Stokes, and her sister, Lucy Tolar
McGowan, were there the day the
train first ran we think it was in
Hardaway," Sweeney says, dis-
played a worn photo of the two
women.
The West Gadsden Historical
Society hosted the celebration at
the old Greensboro depot, the last
remaining depot of the
Apalachicola Northern Railroad.
"I was really happy with the
turnout," Historical Society
President Lynn Poucher said. "It
was great despite the weather
being cold and windy."
Around 40 years ago, the depot
was moved from its original site
between the main line and the side
tack to a nearby lot where it
housed the local barbershop and a
thrift store.
In 2006, its future was uncer-
tain; when Progress Energy
bought that land it sat on it
announced the building had to be
removed in order for the company
to be able to maintain power lines.
After some negotiation,
Progress gave the Historical
Society a $35,000 grant to help
with the cost of relocating the
building 'and St. Joe Land'
Company donated a piece of land
across the street adjacent to the
railroad tracks.

The Apalachicola Northern
Railroad was chartered by the
State of Florida April 7, 1903.
Construction began March 21,
1905.

River Junction
The first train to try out the new
tracks started in River' Junction,
which has since changed its name
back to Chattahoochee, was a
work train that traveled to
Apalachicola to complete the track
for further travel. The-date was
April 30, 1907. Two more engines
pulling loaded passenger cars
arrived in Apalach later in the day
to celebrate the inaugural run.
According to information com-
piled by the West Gadsden
Historical Society, the northern 30
miles of track construction was
fairly easy, over soil with good sta-
bility and drainage. Beyond that -
\ swampland. Today a total of
17,350 feet of bridges and trestles
remains.
The railroad had a significant
impact on Gadsden County; it
made River Junction the second-
largest rail terminal in the state. It
connected a number of communi-


ties along its 96-mile route, with
depots in Hardaway (then called
Dolan), Greensboro,' Juniper,
Sedalia, Guest, Hosford, Evans,
Trum, Sumatra, Fort Gadsden and
Beverly. At the coast, connections
were made by steamer to
Carrabelle, St. Andrew's Bay (now
Panama City) and Pensacola.
The Hardaway Construction
Company owned by Benjamin
Hardaway Sr. of Columbus, Ga.,
built much of the railroad track in
Gadsden County. Hardaway
bought land throughout what was
then known as the Blue Springs
community in western Gadsden
County and began the operation of
a large plantation. The area was
later renamed Hardaway.
It wasn't long before the rail-
road began to run an "oyster spe-
cial" to Atlanta with
Apalachicola's trademark crop
packed in ice.
In 1909, Port St. Joe was
founded near the.fonper, site of St.
Joseph. The same year, the
Apalachicola Northern Railroad
built 16 miles of track connecting
with the track of a previous rail-
road company. The track connect-


Transit program helping pregnant women


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

Just think. You're pregnant
living in rural Gadsen County
and you have no reliable trans-
portation. The doctor you need
to see of a regular basis for pre-
natal services practices in
Tallahassee.
For many women in Gadsden
County, that scenario is the rule
rather than the exception. Kelly
Parker, executive director of the
Gadsen County early Start
Coalition, said the problem of
transportation was the catalyst
for "Gadsden Women's Clinic
Days with Dr. A.J. Brickler."
"Dr. Brickler sees a large
number of pregnant women in
Gadsden County. Most of these
women use the Gadsden County
Health Department for prenatal
services and transfer to Dr.
Brickler at 34 to 36 weeks.
Some of these women have
transportation issues," Parker
said. Other issues included
inability to pay, no funds for
babysitters, leaving to early
from the county and staying too
late in Tallahassee.
To help these women, the
Healthy Start Coalition part-
nered with Big Bend Transit, the
Community Health Council, the
Board of County
Commissioners. Woman to
Woman, and the county health
department to make transporta-
tion for pregnant women possi-
ble and to aid in the reduction of
infant mortality.
Parker said each Wednesday
Dr. Brickler will exclusively see
women from Gadsden County.
Big Bend Transit has donated
six months of free transportation
and Gadsden Woman'to Woman
is paying for six months,trans-
portation for women not eligible
for medicaid.
"The women will be picked
S up and taken directly to to Dr.


Brickler's office and transit will
wait for them.
If some one had tj go to
another office for a service, the
transit will take them there and
bring them back to the office,"
Parker said.

SAVE THE TITANS
The Tallahassee Titans Arena II
football team will be at home Friday


for a 7 pm game against Lakeland.
Though they've been successful on the
field, financially the team has run into


problems. To be blunt about it they
need a big crowd Friday night to help
them get through this year.
The Titans are 6-2 and battling for
a play off spot on the field. Their
opponent will be Lakeland who brings
a 6-1 record into the Civic Center.
Tickets will only be $10 Friday. I
promise you that's a bargain because
watching the Titans and arena football
is great entertainment.
Hopefully there will be a large
turn out and professional football will
be saved in the area.
Professional sports haven't been
real successful in the area but having
them can be an important asset to a
growing community. If you can, attend
the game Friday night, and at least give
the Titans a chance to be saved.
BASEBALL DISTRICT BEGIN
MONDAY
The county's three high school


baseball reams will be in district tour-
nament play next week.
Munroe start's it Monday when
they play host John Paul II at 3 pm in
the 3-A tournament.
Aucilla, Carrabelle. Apalachicola,
and FAMU will also compete in the
tournament that concludes Thursday.
East and West Gadsden will play
Tuesday in their tournaments.
East Gadsden will meet Wakulla
in the 2-4A tournament at Bay High in
Panama City.
Godby, Arnold. and Rickards are
also entered in that tournament and the
finals will be played Friday.
West Gadsden will play host
Wewahitchka in the 4-2A tournament
at 7 pm. Port St. Joe and Liberty Co.
round out that field with the final set
for Thursday.
Winners and second place teams
will all advance to the regional the fol-


lowing Tuesday.
SPRING FOOTBALL
FSU. FAMU, and Florida all held
their spring football games Saturday.
In each game there were different scor-
ing systems.
At FSU a quarterback controversy
is probably going to brew, as both Lee
Weatherford and Xavier Lee both had
good and bad things happen to them
during the spring and the game in
which by the way Quincy's DeCody
Fagg had 5 catches including a touch-
down grab.
FAMU may also have somewhat
of a qb question. Freshman Robert
Love could well be pushing Albert
Chester 11 for playing time.
At Florida it seems Tim Tebow has
everything pretty well.locked up at the
qb spot, though a freshman, Cameron
Newton had a fine passing day that had
Gator fans smiling.

PREMIER BANK


Thursday. Munroe whacked 14 hits in the
mercy rule game. That added with 10 walks
and 6 Apalachicola errors led to the big run
outburst.
William Hackney had four hits, scored
5 runs, and knocked in 3 runs in the game.
Cody Watson and Sam Young had 3 hits
each and Bryant Tolar slapped a pair of
hits. S. Young and Tolar had 3 rbi's.
Clay Kramm got the win lifting his
record to 2-1.
Friday, Munroe lost a district game
to FAMU 6-3. They trailed only 4-3 going
into the seventh when the Baby Rattlers got
2 runs to put the game away.
Chris Allen was the Winning pitcher
for FAMU as he pitched a complete game.
Logan McNear had 2 hits for the Baby rat-
tlers.
Sam Young kept his hot hitting up
with 3 hits and Kramm had 2 for Munroe.
Ben Young had a pair of rbi's.
Monday, the Bobcats battled with
Wewahitchka before losing 8-7 on a game
winning single by the Gators Sean Bierman


in the bottom of the seventh.
Munroe was behind 7-3 in the fifth
when they tied it with a four spot. Ben
Young and Miller Joyner had key hits in the
inning for Munroe.
Kramm who came in to pitch in the 3rd
did a fine job hurling 4 innings of scoreless
baseball before Wewa pulled it out in the
seventh.
Another fine pitching performance was
turned in by Cody Watson Tuesday when he
lost a tough one to Maclay 2-1.
Maclay scored both runs in the first and
both were unearned.
Watson hurled a complete game giving
up only 3 hits and striking out 7.
Ben Young's double plated Sam Young
for the only Bobcat run in the 6th.
Munroe's record is 8-13. They will
close their regular season at Bozeman
Friday;
They open play in the District 3-A tour-
nament at John Paul II Monday. They play
host John Paul II at 3 pm.


Time is quickly running
out for the Carrabelle High
School sports teams. As of next.
year the school will combine
with Apalachicola and become
Franklin County High. Athletes
will play under the nick name
Seahawks, not Panthers.
That thought probably
weighed on the girl's softball
team minds Tuesday afternoon
as they .began play in the
District 3-A tournament at
Munroe.
A loss would mean no
more softball for the Carrabelle
Lady Panthers. That lost didn't
happen. Carrabelle took advan-
tage of host Munroe miscues
and took a 7-2 win over the
Lady Bobcats to advance to
Thursday 3-A finals. They will
meet Aucilla, a 15-5 winner
over John Paul II.
Sheena Millender pitched
the Lady Panthers to the win
with a 5 hitter, fanning 4.
Munroe got 1 of the runs
off Millender in the first inning
when Malorie McKinnon sin-
gled and later scored on a wild
pitch.
The Lady Panthers tied it
in the third pretty much the
same way as Erica Tucker sin-
gled and later scored on a wild
pitch to knot things up.
Carrabelle took the lead in
the 4th when Nicole Galvin and
Millender led the inning off
with hits.
Tucker reached on an error
followed by a fielder's choice


by Sheree Wilson. Two more
Munroe errors in the inning
allowed those 4 batters to score
and the Lady Panthers were up
5-1.
The Lady Bobcats made it
5-2 in the bottom of the 5th
when Kaitlyn Rentz singled and
later scored on a fielder's choice
by Haliegh Corbally.
The Lady Panthers got 2 in
the seventh when Millender and
Tucker collected hits. They
later scored on Munroe errors
and Carrabelle held on to the
cushion.
McKinnon pitched the
complete game for the Lady
Bobcats and allowed only 5 hits
while striking out 8.
Of the 7 runs she gave up
only 1 was earned.
McKinnon and Rentz had
2 hits each for Munroe whose
season ended at 16-7.
"We're glad to still be
going." Carrabelle coach
Jennifer Johnson said. "This
will be the last year as the
Carrabelle Lady Panthers and
we won't to play as long as we
can." "We're a young team with
only 2 seniors and we know
next year these returners will be
Seahawks."
Right now they're still
Lady Panthers and they will
have at least 2 more games.
Because win or lose Thursday
they will advance to the regions
next Tuesday.

Munroe softball, tennis


teams in district play


Tuesday night the Munroe
Lady Cats softball team dropped a
close contest to Florida High.
Munroe gave up one run in the
bottom of the third and were down
1-0 in the fourth. A controversial
contact call took the Lady Cats
runner off third and put them out
of the inning. The Lady Cats were
not able to cross home plate and
lost 1-0. Haliegh Corbally
pitched against the Lady Noles.
She walked only one and struck
out four. Munroe's Spenser
Morris had one of two hits for the
Lady Cats. Thursday night the
team got back on the winning
track downing Maclay 11-0 in five
innings. Munroe was held score-
less until the bottom of the fourth
when they exploded for eleven
runs. Corbally accounted for two
hits and four rbi's in the inning.
Morris also had two hits and
Malorie McKinnon had two 'hits
with a double and an rbi. Kaitlyn
Rentz went 3 for 3 with an RBI.
McKinnon was the winning pitch-
er striking out nine and walking
only one Marauder batter. The
team hosts the Class A District 3
play this week with a 16-6 record
and a 10th place ranking in the
state softball polls. The team, the
tournament's second seed, played
Carrabelle on Tuesday while top
seed, Aucilla Christian, played
John Paul II. The two winners
will meet up on Thursday night at
6:00 at Munroe for the champi-
onship game.
The Munroe tennis team
took sweet revenge this week
against an earlier season loss to


district foe John Paul II Catholic
High School on Tuesday. The
team took the match 6-1 winning
four singles matches and both
doubles matches. Beth
Summerford handily won the sec-
ond slot 6-0, 7-5. Chelsea Watson
won both 3rd position sets by 6-3
scores. Sixth grader Hilary
Floumoy had a tougher time in her
4th spot before finally winning 7-

Summerford, Beth Summerford
and Georgia Davis all won.

stronger physically than we were.
I really thought we'd win it, and on
any given day we could." said
Summerford. The tennis team fin-
ished their regular season 8-4.
The team loses only one senior,
Elizabeth Bridges.

squad and one sophomore. The

Gadsden babies chosen





to appear in calendar


Prom night


by LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor

Gadsden County's got its
share of cute babies.
Two of them were chosen
from a pool of 232 entries as
winners in a calendar contest
sponsored by Brehon Institute.
The Brehon Institute for
Family Services held a call for
entry in the fall for parents to
submit amateur photos of their
babies. Carolina Harrell and
Athey Crawford II will appear
in the 18-month calendar.
This is the third year for the
calendar contest, a fundraiser
for Brehon Institute which oper-
ates Health Families Gadsden
and Healthy Families Leon.
Both are community-based, vol-
untary programs designed to
prevent child abuse and neglect
and other poor childhood out-
comes.
Athey Crawford II will be
Mr. October, appropriate as his.

of him playing inside a large,
hollowed-out pumpkin.
"I cleaned out a pumpkin in

the backyard and put him in it,"
Kim Crawford said. "He loved it
- he was gnawing it on the side."
Athey was five months old
when the picture was taken.
Crawford learned via email
her son had been chosen for the
calendar,
"It's exciting," she said. "We
were excited to get picked out of
232. I've never done anything
like that before. It was for a
good cause though."
And just call Carolina Jane
Harrell Miss July.
In the winning photo her


mom, B.J. Harrell, took,
Carolina, then 16 months old, is
seated .in a helicopter cockpit
happily sporting a pair of ear
muffs normally used by pilots
for communication.
"I took it in February they
were having a church campout
and Doug Brown from the
Sheriffs Office came out to
show them safety practices. I
put her in the helicopter and put
the earmuffs and microphone on
her she wanted in there, she
wasn't scared or anything,"
Harrell said. "My husband has
taken up photography and he
was off hunting so I just took the
camera and said, 'Let's see what
I can do.' I wasn't expecting to
win."
Contest winners will be feted
at the third annual Blue Ribbon
Ball April 28 at the Florida State
University Alumni Center,
where they will receive more
than $200 in prizes and be treat-
ed to an evening of live music,
entertainment and a live auction.
The calendar will be unveiled
that evening.
Cost for the ball is $50 per

person or $80 per couple in
advance. It's $60 per person at
the door.
The institute will hold anoth-
er calendar contest for babies
ages 0-3 this year from October
through January, 2008. For
more information about the con-
test or Brehon Institute, visit
brehoninstitute.org.
Harrell said she plans to enter
her again when the next contest
rolls around.
"We'll try it again next year -
it's going for a good cause," she
said.

LEGAL NOTICE

THE SCHOOL BOARD OF GADSDEN COUNTY,
FLORIDA, announces its regularly scheduled Board
meeting and a workshop, to which all interested per-
sons are invited.


King Jr. Peace Award on the
basis of an essay, their character
and the school and community
activities they participated in to.
promote peace. The couple
established the scholarship 10
years ago.
On the same table, books
dealing with peace and handouts,
including St. Francis' prayer
("Lord, make me an instrument of
thy peace,") 12 Steps to Personal
Peacemaking and brochures from
organizations that are working in
schools to teach alternatives to
violence.
The Coultases will set up a
second exhibit focusing on
national and international
peacemaking, putting on display
books and videos about leaders
including Mahatma Gandhi,
Ralph Bunche, Dr. King and
Eleanor Roosevelt. A notebook
highlighting the work of several
Nobel Peace Prize winners will be
on display, as well as magazines
and materials from other
organizations working for peace.
The literature includes more than
10 peace fellowships of various
religious groups including
Christians, Jewish, Muslims and
Buddhists.
Illinois natives, the Coultases
married in 1952 ("She was going
with my best friend," Charles
noted). He was in the US Army
during the Korean War doing
biological warfare research.
They moved to Tallahassee from
Minnesota in 1966 and to Havana
in 1969, where they've been ever
since. All four of their sons
graduated from Havana
Northside; two are engineers, one
is a doctor and one, a teacher.
Charles worked at Florida A&M
University teaching agricultural
science and Virginia worked as a
preschool teacher in those days;
after moving to their farm in
Havana they began operating
Camp Coco (Camping
Opportunities for Children
Organization) in 1969.
"We found out black children
and low income children couldn't
attend Boy Scouts or 4H or other
camps," she said.
A sorority at Florida State
University bought them a bus to
use to transport camp attendees,
and 10 churches contributed time
and money to the effort.
Word of the camp 'spread, and
Burt Reynolds once participated
in a fundraiser for the camp.
"Burt Reynolds was an emcee at
the Florida State football stadium
during a fundraiser," Virginia
recalled.
The couple ran the camp for 10
years before it drew the interest of
late Tallahassee Democrat
Publisher Malcolm Johnson, who
started Funders Inc. to enable
sponsorships for camp
participants.
He and Funders Inc. took over
operation of the camp until his
retirement, after which Funders
Inc. dissolved and so did the
camp.
"But by that time things had
opened up quite a bit for these
children," Virginia said.
S They were the first Americans to
work in the first independent
black African country Ghana -


12 Steps of Personal Peacemaking *

1. Admit that conflict and violence within yourself creates
problems.
2. Believe that a power greater than yourself can bring you
strength and peace.
3. Make a commitment to connect with that higher power.
4. Make an honest moral inventory of how you have con-
tributed to conflict and violence in your life.
5. Admit to your higher power, to yourself and to others the
exact nature of your contributions to conflict.
6. Focus more on the here and now. Slow down. Breathe
deeply. Become responsible for your feelings and behavior.
7. Seek spiritual guidance in confronting your shortcomings.
8. Make a list of all persons you have harmed and become
willing to make direct amends.
9. Continue to be mindful of your actions and their effect on
others and promptly apologize if appropriate.
10. Seek through prayer, meditation and other self-care tech-
niques to gain emotional and spiritual strength.
11. Forgive those who may have offended you.
12. Commit to being an instrument of peace and healing
among all those who cross your path.

where Charles worked with locals in Central America for a year or
on an agriculture project. The two so.
also lived in Haiti three years "The interest we had in civil
working on a similar project and rights also expanded our interest


in world peace," Virginia said.
"Dr. Martin Luther King was
adamant that justice and peace
have to be worldwide, not just
local."
To that end, Charles traveled to
Iraq in March of 2003 to protest
the impending war there. He went
with a group comprised of
Quakers, Mennonites and other
"traditional peace churches," he
said, the week before the war
started.
"Some of us stayed until the war
started, some of them stayed until
their lives were at stake," he said.
He stayed for two weeks.
Virginia has had several of her
paintings and sculptures displayed
at the Gadsden Arts Center; she
also self-published a book, "5
Miles from Georgia," which
details some of the racial
disparities that still exist.
"People come here to see the
antique stores and they don't, see
the way people live two blocks
away," she said.
Both volunteer for the "I Can"
program, headed by Dr. Shirley
Aarons.
The program trains volunteers to
serve as student advocates,
mentoring students who are
struggling in school and getting to
know students' parents and
teachers.
They plan to move their exhibit
to the public library in Quincy in
several months and then to the
Chattahoochee Library after that.

Dear Gadsden, Liberty & Calhoun
County Residents,
Three years ago I obtained my Florida
Dealer's License due to the frustration of
shopping for a used car. The following
three things made car shopping a big
headache for me:
*Haggling for the best price
*Having to come up with $2000 to $3000
for a down payment, taxes, title and tag


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


*At LOAN VALUE, we make a small profit
and you eet 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 eet you pre-approved,
tell you what it will cost and buy it for you.
We appreciate our supporting us. Come
by or call.

day




on the




square '


County holds chili cookoff to help


raise


funds for WalkAmerica


It was a perfect day for
chili.
Friday's Chili Cookoff on
the Courthouse Square was
Gadsden County
Government's main
fundraiser this year to benefit
the annual March of Dimes
WalkAmerica scheduled for
later this month.
The Property Appraiser's
Office as well as the
University of Florida.
Research Center (IFAS) are
also a part of the county's
WalkAmerica Team this year.
The three organizations
have held fundraisers on their
own, but Friday's event was a
combined effort. Betty
Miller,, executive assistance
to the County Manager, said
they hope to raise a total of
$5,000 to donate to the
March 6f Dimes. The chili
cookoff raised approximately
$1,500.


Miller's grandchildren,
Anna and Owen Miller are
the youth ambassadors for the
2007. The twins were born at
30 weeks and Miller said
Anna weighed only 2.10
pounds while her brother
weighed 3.1 pounds.
"When they -came home
they were on oxygen. They
went from the bedroom to the
livingroom," she said because
their parents didn't want to
risk taking them out.
Some local leaders
contributed to the cause by
allowing themselves to make
a splash in the dunking .booth.
Robert Presnell, Director of
the County's Road and Bridge
Department had too much fun
hitting the target that sent
Quincy Police Chief Gerald
McSwain the the drink three
consecutive times.
"I don't mind taking a dip a
time or two for a good


gr .




cause," McSwain said.
Also taking turns were
County Commissioner Ed
Dixon, County Manager.
Marlon Brown, EMS
Director Brian Beasley, and
others.
Miller said the cookoff was
a big success with 24 cooks
contributing to the event.

Property Appraiser Clay
VanLandingham; and County
Commissioner Ed Dixon
were cookoff judges and
admitted having a hard time
selecting three winners.
"We have all kinds of chili.
Some with sausage, turkey
and even a venison chili,"
Miller said.
The first place honors went
to Isabell Byrd of the


Planning and Zoning
department. Debbie Joyner
earned second place while
Martha Chancey won third.
County Judge Stu Parsons
took the time to step outside
of the courthouse and have a
cup of chili and crackers.
After an obviously satisfying
lunch, all he could do was
smile and hold up a nearly
empty cup.

Each year on April 22nd the world celebrates Earth Day. This holiday is recognized as the first international event
held annually worldwide. Eaith Day celebrates the Earth's environment and spreads awareness on how we can
protect it through conservation. The holiday was created in the late 1960's and began mainly on college campuses.
'-,,,,.- The original holiday was celebrated on March 21stduring the vernal equinox. For this reason it was known as
Equinoctial Earth Day. In later years the date was moved and the name was shortened, but the meaning has
always been the same. There are many ways that you can help to celebrate Earth Day. Planting a tree is a great
way to celebrate. Help clean up your school or neighborhood by picking up trash. And don't just help the environ- -
ment out on Earth Day; remember to help it out everyday of the year. The more you help it, the better place ths /
BR Iworld will be for everyone to live in it! I
Conservation is the act of carefully protecting the planet We must responsibly use the resources on Earth in order to-
not destroy them or deplete them to extinction. There are many different types of conservation; air, land, and water
Conservation. They are all meant to help protect our resources from being polluted. Conservation is also about protecting
bA Y the earth's animals. It is important to make sure that we have clean drinking water, pure land to grow healthy crops to eat,
and to prevent the air that We breathe from becoming toxic poisons, instead of healthy, clean oxygen. the .
Conservation is also about protecting the Earth's ecosystem An ecosystem is when a complex community of organisms and the environment that they
live in make up an ecological unit. In other words, all living things on Earth are important to make the planet a safe and healthy place to live. For example, '
humans and many animals require oxygen to breath in order to live and plants require carbon dioxide to live. Humans create carbon dioxide and plants
S create oxygen, an in tum we help create what each other needs in order to live Not only are people, plants, and animals help each other, all living things
on the planet work together in ways like this to make the Earth work. Conservation of this ecosystem is important to maintain an inhabitable environment
so that the Earth will be a clean place to live for millions of years. J'- J fJ. J;JidJ i jI '

Out for a morning stroll last Wednesday morning were six little cuties from the ABC Learning Center. Accompanying their lit-
tle ones was Tiffiany Gilyard and Margaret Robbins. The children, between 6 and eight months, seemed to enjoy the late morning
air and a change of scenery.

Concert of African music and dance set


The Third Annual Concert
of African Music and Dance
will take place at the Chiles
High School Auditorium on
April 21 at 7:30 pm. The
theme of the concert is "South
Africa's Struggles against
Injustice and Hardships:
Parallels with African-
American History."
The concert is free and
open to the public, though
donations at the door are much
appreciated.
The program features the
group, Undivided, who will
sing two religious South
African songs associated with
injustice, freedom, and victo-
ry. The Chiles High School
choir will perform the tradi-
tional South African folksong
"Shosholosa," originally a sad
worksong but now a current
hit there.
The evening's program
draws comparisons of South
African songs of hardship and
African American spirituals.
Although an ocean apart and
separated in time, the two cul-
tures share common musical


themes of being united in the
struggle, marching into victo-
ry, and the joy of homecoming
(e.g., Swing Low, Sweet
Chariot).
The event showcases the
renowned South African Zulu
warriors "Soweto Street
Beat," who have stunned audi-
ences at the 1996 Olympics,
Disney's Animal Kingdom,
Lincoln Center, and' Mardi
Gras celebrations.
They have become leg-
endary for their extravagant
leaps and jumps, rhythmic
drumming and songs. The trib-
al warriors' dress of skins,
furs, leather, masks, shields
and spears intensify the
drama.
The Zulu warriors, dating
back from Chaka, a renowned
fighting king (the African
equivalent of Napoleon) are
the climax of the concert.
Dr. Katsvairo, director of
the concert, is a scientist from
Zimbabwe who lives and
works in Tallahassee. He
founded the Concert of
African Music and Dance two


years ago as a means of dis-
seminating African culture in
our community through the
arts.
He is also a composer of
symphonies, small ensemble
works, and songs. Dr.
Katsvairo points out that while
thousands of symphonies and
chamber works are performed
yearly in concert halls world
wide, including music by
composers from virtually
everywhere on earth, African
classical music is snubbed in
venues outside of Africa.
The main reason is lack of
funding. Traditionally, major
compositions have been
underwritten by wealthy
patrons or organizations that
have an interest in a specific
kind of music. However, such
funding is nonexistent for
African composers. Dr.
Katsvairo, is seeking people
who wish to commission
African compositions or assist
in their recording. Those inter-
ested can contact him at
africanmusicanddance @ gmail
.com.

Mrs. McMillon's 1st grade class at Tallayana Christian School has been studying in great detail
about plants in Science. Recently, the class visited the Sweetwater Tree Farm located in Havana,
Florida. It was an adventurous, fun filled and most importantly educational day. Mr. and Mrs.
Coggins had a variety of activities planned for the students. Each student was privileged with the
opportunity to transplant a seedling into a larger pot to take home; which in turn could be trans-
planted into the yard in three weeks. Also, with the great devotion the Coggins family (Mom, Dad,
and Grandparents) worked feverishly to prepare a hayride and lunch for the class.

Easter Egg Extravaganza at St. John

On Thursday, April 5, 2007, the students at St. John Elementary
School enjoyed an Easter Egg Extravaganza. Three students from
each classroom (Pre-K through Fifth Grades) were selected to par-
ticipate in the event. The criteria for selection were outstanding
classroom behavior and citizenship. Mrs. Walker, Principal, along
with Georgette McNelson, Pre-K teacher and Margaret Byrd, a sub-
stitute for the physical education class hid the eggs for the students.
All eggs, with the exception of three golden eggs were filled with
treats. The three golden eggs contained cash prizes. The students
were so excited that they could not contain themselves!
With so much excitement, quick feet and sharp eyes from some
of the older students; how do you ensure that all students find at
least a couple of eggs? Well, administration had an answer for that.
Special Easter bags were created for any child who did not find any
eggs.
The bags contained Easter pencils, candy, and yes, you guessed
it a couple of eggs. As if this wasn't enough for the wonderful boys
and girls at St. John, the five top winners won gifts bags filled with
food dye kits, pencils, etc. To top off the afternoon, every student
received a cold popsicle to cool them down.


Mrs. McEwen's seventh
grade math classes have com-
pleted an interdisciplinary unit
on the Iditarod Sled Dog Race.
It is also known as the "Last
Great Race on Earth". The stu-
dents learned about Alaska and
the people who live there. They
followed the race and learned
about the mushers and their
dogs. Students studied about the
extreme conditions, which are
dangerous for both people and
dogs, but it tests their partner-
ship, molding them into true


teams. They go through forests,
cross two mountain ranges, tun-
dra, and frozen rivers. Everyone
who finishes passes the test of
courage and determination. This
is the true meaning of the
Iditarod. Students worked on
assignments related to math, sci-
ence, social studies, reading and
art. As a culminating activity,
students watched two movies
related to sled dogging, Snow
Dogs and Eight Below. The pic-
tures shows Tamara Knight with
her project.

MANDATE TO


In 1915, World War I had engulfed the countries of
Europe. On April 24, news reached Constantinople
(Istanbul) that a battle was raging in the eastern
Turkish town of Van, where the Armenian residents
were fighting Turkish security forces.

Acting on orders from the Minister of the Interior,
police fanned out across Constantinople and arrest-
ed two hundred people whom the government
claimed were security risks. All two hundred were
Armenians; a group ofTurks the government identi-
fied as threatening the Turkish war effort.

The government's plan, hatched in late 1914, was
working.,Less than four months earlier, the Interior
Minister had issued "The Ten Commandments," The


Ambassador Morgenthau's Story

Henry Morgenthau served as American ambassa-
dor to Turkey from 1913 to 1916. In that position,
he received numerous eyewitness reports of the
atrocities occurring against the Armenians. Upon
returning to the United States, he wrote this book,
which was published in 1918. It tells the story of
the Armenian genocide.

document, which remained secret until after World
War I, detailed a plan to exterminate all Armenian
Turks. Among the instructions were orders to:

1. ...close all Armenian Societies, and arrest all
who worked against Government at any time ...
send them into the provinces ... and wipe them
out either on the road or there.

3. Excite Moslem opinion by suitable and spe-
cial means ... [in] point of fact the Armenians have
already won the hatred of the Moslems ... pro-
voke prganised massacres as the Russians did at Baku.

5. Apply measures to exterminate all males
under 50, priests and teachers, leave girls and
children to be Islamized.

In early 1915, the government began
.publishing stories of Armenian
treachery. By April, most
Moslem Turks saw
Armenian Turks as trai-
tors. Across the country,
government sanctioned
terror squads began
-- slaughtering Armenian
S men. Surviving women and
children who refused to
accept Islam were banished
to the eastern desert, where
thousands more died.

Germany objected, they could do little. With World
War I raging, no nation had the resources to do any-
thing other than voice its objections.

During one meeting, the American ambassador,
Henry Morgenthau tried reasoning with Talaat, the
Minister of the Interior. According to his notes:


Ambassador
Morgenthau:
Suppose a few
Armenians did
betray you. Is that a
reason for destroy-
ing a whole race? Is
that an excuse for
making innocent
women and children
suffer?"

Talaat: "Those
things are
inevitable."

Legacy Project.


In July 1916, the German ambassador cabled his
government:
In its attempt to carry out its purpose to resolve the
Armenian question by the destruction of the
Armenian race, the Turkish government has refused
to be deterred neither by our representations, nor by
those of the American Embassy, nor by the delegate
of the Pope, nor by the threats of the Allied Powers,
nor in deference to the public opinion of the West rep-
resenting one-half of the vorld.
