When Gadsden County School
Board members, administrators,
teachers and community leaders
learned last week that each school in
Gadsden County had become fully
accredited, a spontaneous cheer went
out.
"When they announced we were
fully accredited, everybody in the
room just jumped up out of their chairs


and cheered,"
Gadsden County
Schools
Superintendent
Reginald James
said.
Considering the
fact that had the
.Southern
Association of James
Colleges and
School's accreditation council could
have refused to accredit any of the


county's schools had just one of them
been determined to be deficient in
some area, there was a lot to cheer
about.
"It was a great report," James said of
the SACS council's findings. "We are
only the eighth school district to
receive district-wide accreditation."
For years, SACS studied each school
individually. Recently, the
organization gave school districts the
opportunity .to have each school
evaluated during the same visit, with


the stipulation that should one school
be found lacking, all schools would be
refused accreditation.
"We are very pleased," James said.
"It says to me they recognize quality
instruction is taking place in our
schools and we provide it in a safe and
.orderly manner."
The Florida SACS accreditation
council accredits more than 1,800
elementary, middle and secondary

Last week, Ron Thompkins of:Watson and

report, Thompkins didn't show up either.
S"He (Thompkins) called before the meeting

vlanager Bill Bogan, at last Monday night's
meeting. Tuesday Bogan said that the audit
was complete and "it's in the mail and I expect
it sometime this week." He said he didn't know
which mail carrier was being used.

Elias and other commissioners may not have

The Gadsden County Chamber of Commerce is
pleased to announce the placement of two billboards
on the Interstate 10 corridor in JefferSon and Jackson
counties. These locations will be visible to an
estimated 50,000 vehicles daily.
"The 1-10 corridor is a vital part of the tourism
industry in North Florida, Placing these billboards will
alert potential visitors to the Gadsden County area,"
said David Gardner, executive director of the Gadsden
County Chamber.
"Promoting and marketing Gadsden," Gardner
continued, is a intricate part of the Chamber's
responsibilities."
A number of tourism activities in this county are,
antique shopping, several festivals each year, boat
races, golf courses, fishing, historical walking tours,
Music Theater, and art galleries.
The billboards are strategically located to help draw
visitors from the interstate.
"We are excited about being able to market to
potential tourist's that are visiting North Florida, or on
their way through our state. We are sending out a
reminder that Gadsden County has a lot to offer,"
Gardner said.
The Chamber of Commerce also has placed an
advertisement in the Florida's official state

Chattahoochee mural gets reprieve


By LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor
Von Tipton's much-loved mural
will remain where it is in
Chattahoochee for the time
being, but a business looking to
locate there has decided against
moving to the riverside city.
City Manager Lee Garner said
Walgreen's notified him April 26
that it would not build a store in
Chattahoochee.
"I got a letter saying they were


no longer considering it because
they found some environmental
contamination in the ground,"
Garner said.
The contamination was
apparently caused by a dry
cleaner's business once located at
the site, Garner said.
Walgreen's representatives had
expressed interest in several sites
in Chattahoochee but settled on a
city block that starts at the corner
of U.S. 90 and Decatur Street.
Privately owned, the property is


home to Heritage Park,
established by the city's Rotary
Club roughly 20 years ago.
At the time, Tipton, who died
several years ago, painted a
mural on the side of a now-
vacant florist's shop of a
paddleboat moving lazily down
the Apalachicola River as a
fisherman looked on.
The mural became something of
a city trademark, and when news

by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
Only 24 hours and downtown

sights and sounds of Cinco de
Mayo as the local Hispanic
community joins Quincyfest for
the first time to present
Latinofest.
It all starts at 4 p.m. and
visitors to downtown throughout
the evening will enjoy music,
dancing and food all prepared
and performed by local people
who want to share their culture.
Michelle Alvarez, who has
helped organized the eeint, said
she is excited. "The word had
gone out and people have been


calling. We're expecting a big
crowd," she said. Entetainment
on the mainstage will change
every thirty minutes..
A local favorite, "Little Taste
Of Mexico" dance group will be
on' hand to perform in their
beautiful and authentic costumes.
Latinofest ends at 11 p.m.
On Saturday, the third annual
City of Quincy presents Blues
and Barbecue will get into full
swing. Live music kicks off at 10

is free, the food is not. No pets or

The event is sponsored by the
City of Quincy with Comcast as
the major corporate. Other
sponsors include the Gadsden
County Board of County
Commissioners, Tallahassee
Memorial Regional Hospital, BP,
Shell; and Premier Bank.
"We certainly could not have
done this without the City of
Quincy and our major.sponsors.
We anticipate that over 7,000
people will be downtown those
two days," said co-chairman
Michael O'Halloran.


My mother had leukemia and
she was given many units of
blood. When people asked us
how they could help with my
mother, we told them they
could give blood. One of my
co-workers then called and set
up the first blood drive at
Focus Credit Union in
Chattahoochee. Now we have
drives also at our Quincy loca-
tion. This is a wonderful way
for people to help.

David Mills to the rescue!


This is a Charles Atlas story today.
And I know most of you guys are way too
young to remember Charles. He was a
skinny kid who kept having bad experi-
ences at the beach. Every time he sat
down on his towel some bully would
come along and kick sand in his face.
Now, that was a little embarrassing for
the skinny guy, especially with his best
girl friend looking on!
Charles finally tasted enough sand
that he decided to do something about it.
He went to the gym and started working
out! By the time you got down to the last
frame in the Charles Atlas Complete
Body Building Course commercial, the
little skiliny guy had grown muscles on
top of muscles and the bullies left him
and his girl friend completely alone!
He didn't get no more sand kicked in
his face! I don't know if he used steroids
or not.....
I haven't been to the beach since I took
Mother out for a walk along the gulf in
1987. The "sand" getting kicked in my
face was happening at the golf course.
And the people doing it were mostly my
brothers and my sons and Chick, Doc,
Billy, Jim, Ralph, Tuck, Charlene, Heidi,
Little Orphan Annie....and most anyone
else that teed it up with me!
I love to play golf. But I was develop-
ing a complex over this thing. I bought a
new driver and re-gripped my irons. I got
one of those expensive putters like Tiger
uses. I tried kicking the ball closer to the
hole when no one was looking. I yelled
"gotcha" in the middle of their back
swings. I rattled the change in my pocket
.when they stood over an important putt. I
accidentally ran the cart over their balls
and mashed them into the fairway.
They still beat me.
It was time for me to seek real help!
I don't remember exactly who told me
about the T. P. Mills Company over in
Tuscaloosa, Alabama. I know they have
putters on the professional tour and a fair
share of PGA tournaments had been won
by guys playing Mills putters.
I did a little research on the internet.
Mr. T. P. Mills might have had the same
problems I'm having, only he preceded
me by a generation. And he was much
smarter than me! He helped his game by
making his own putter. In fact, in the
early 60's he was putting so good every-
one wanted one, "just like T. P. is using".


Tour players, presidents, heads of state
were soon coming by for "their own per-
sonal putter". Since the early '60's the T.
P. Mills Company has been turning out
some of the finest forged putters on the
planet. I was so desperate I was ready to
try anything.....
I got a number that reportedly was for
the Mills Company and I dialed it. While
it was ringing I was thinking all mighty
hard on just how dumb this was. I knew
Mr. Mills had died. I read that his son,
David, now ran the company. And made
the putters. But you just don't call up a
big company like this and say, "I need a
putter."
"Hello, this is David."
Amazing! The president, and owner of
the company, answered his own phone.
How impressive is that! And he sounded
as regular as the guy next door.
"Uh...uh...well...uh, I need a putter."
"We might be able to help. Just what
are you looking for?"
Now people, I can't give him the his-
tory of my golf game. I can't tell him how
well I hit it in the early '70's versus the
way I'm playing now. I don't want to get
into how the other guys laugh at my
scores, nobody wants me on "their" team.
They line up to compete against me....
"Uh...uh...I need one that will get
the ball in the hole!"
He didn't laugh. Or think me nuts. We
talked putters. And feel. And shape. And
loft. And weight. I told him I really liked
the upright angle on the old Macgregor
Ironmaster putters of the mid '50's. He
said, "I know that putter. We can get you
that same angle."
Over a couple of weeks we talked sev-
eral times as he forged, milled, turned and
polished on "my" putter. He always
answered the phone. He was extra polite.
He always had time to discuss the partic-
ulars. He was committed to getting it
right!
I was a little embarrassed. I didn't play
like Tiger Woods. Or Loren Roberts. Or
Gil Morgan. Or Phil Mickelson. David
didn't seem to notice.
He sent me the best looking putter I
have ever seen! It felt great. It near 'bout
lined itself up at the hole. The ball came
off of it perfect every time. Amazing!
And, after sizing me up in a couple of
phone calls, he graciously stamped my

Full moon fever? You decide


Far be it from me to perpetuate old
wives' tales.
Even so.
If this week hasn't been chock full of
full moon fever, I don't know what else
to call it.
There are plenty of statistics that
prove there are not more homicides, sui-
cides, casino payout rates, natural disas-
ters, accidents, birth rates, "behavioral
outbursts of psychologically challenged
rural adults," as skepdic.com diplomati-
cally puts it, or werewolves during a full
moon.
Which is important to note at this
juncture, as two Tallahassee high schools
were put on lockdown this week after
students reported seeing a gun at one and
shots were actually fired at another.
Here in town, authorities arrested a
man accused of waiting for his wife with
a handgun, chasing her in a car as she
drove toward the county jail, refusing to
stop when law enforcement officers at
the jail told him to and leading deputies
on a high-speed chase around the county.
See Editor Alice DuPont's story about it
on page 6.
Seven people were shot in
Jacksonville.
And I personally encountered a crazed
dog.


L letters to the


Oh, OK, it was my dog and I was
feeding her breakfast and she got all
excited and stepped on my bare foot with
her big Doberman paw.
But still.
According to space.com, Native
Americans gave recurring full moons
names to keep track of the seasons.
Europeans added a few names of their
own to the mix, but just know whenever
you see one, that full moon has a name.
The May 2 full moon was the official
Full Flower Moon, or, depending on
which tradition you follow, the Full Corn
Planting Moon or the Milk Moo.n, except
it didn't look very milky here this year -
someone told me it was smoke from the
Georgia wildfires that made it look like
an orange harvest moon.
And not all the things I mentioned ear-
lier happened ON the day of the full
moon, but near it.
So I might be wrong about all this,
these events were just random oddness,
no correlation with the moon's phase
whatsoever.
I hope not, because May 31 we get a
Blue Moon, as the second full moon
occurring within a calendar month is
called. That happens about once every
three years.
Govern yourselves accordingly.

Dear Editor:

On Wednieday, April 25, 2007 I had the pleasure of extending my classroom
to th& d~dsden Arts Center. I took some of my art students on a rotation sched-
ule throughout the day to see the Chester Williams "African Affinity" exhibit,
as well as, the work of Amos Lewis and Eileen McCann.
The docents and other staff provided the students with interesting informa-
tion and gave quick-witted feedback to the various questions thought up by mid-
dle school minds. They are to be applauded for a great job.
I also want to thank my students for reminding me why I love to teach. At a
time of the year when many of us are burnt out and wondering "are the students
learning anything?" these students answered my question with a big "yes we
are".
As the milled around looking at abstract art, landscapes and various other
pieces I could see and hear them comparing and contrasting, drawing conclu-
sions, making inferences and gathering detailed information. This is what it's
all about! Taking what is learned in the classroom and applying it in the real
world.
Thanks again to Gadsden Arts Center and to the students of James "A."
Shanks Middle School.

Dear Editor:

We would like to thank the City of Quincy and the North Florida asphalt
workers for a job well done on our street, Dezell Street. We had some dust on
our houses but nothing that water could not remove. We washed our own hous-
es down. May God bless all of you.

Dear Editor:

April 20-21, 2007 was a great time in the community of Quincy. More than
40 Relay teams came together to raise money for cancer, celebrate cancer sur-
vivors and honor those who have lost their battle with cancer. The Quincy
Fitness Center took on a new look for the American Cancer Society Relay for
Life. Much appreciation is extended to EVERYONE who helped to make the
Relay a Success. Each goal set by the Quincy Executive Committee was
achieved! At the end of the Relay, April 21, 2007, the following Top
Fundraising Teams were recognized:

Gadsden Sheriff Department $17,576.00
Bradwell Enterprise $8,356.65
Thomas Memorial Rockers $5,887.00
James A. Shanks Middle School $5,243.00
Gadsden Correctional Facility $3,915.00
Total $80,323.32
Teams are still submitting money. Way to go Quincy Relay for Life 2007!
The wrap up party will be held within the next two weeks.

Most appreciative,
Rosa Robinson
Relay Event Chairperson

Dear Editor,

The Gadsden County Sheriff's Office would like to thank all the citizens,

I would like to thank you personally for helping the Quincy Relay for Life
exceed their goal this year by raising over $80,000.00. It's a pleasure to serve in
Gadsden County, where people work together for a great cause. I want you to
know your thoughtfulness and generosity is greatly appreciated.

Once again we say thank you for supporting our team and may God richly
bless each and every one of you.

Thank you,
Sheriff Moriis A. Young

Greetings to citizens of
Gadsden County and the City of
Quincy. I have become very
concerned about the financial
status of our community. Be
assured this is my opinion and
everyone has one, so please
allow me to share my thoughts
with you before getting upset.
There seems to be the idea that
we as a community can afford to
pay our county and city man-
agers a salary comparable to our
neighboring county of Leon and
the City of Tallahassee.
Common knowledge will alow
us to understand that we do not
have the same resources as our
neighbor.
I feel as though our elected
officials are taking advantage of
the people in this community by
not being the stewards that they
should be concerning our peo-
ple resources and financial
resources. I am quite sure that
there is someone in our city and
county that is capable of manag-
ing both governments for a less-
er salary than we-are presently
paying these individuals. I know
these salaries put a burden on
the people as far as utilities and
etc. Be assured I have no prob-
lem with the managers, if some-
one was going to pay me in
excess of one hundred thousand
dollars a year to run a small
entity, as we are, I too would
accept it. At what point do we
start doing what is in the best
interest of the constituents,
some of you have been elected
again not to continue in the
same path but correct your past.
I pray no one is offended, but
that a change of heart may
come, and with this change it is
reflected in a way we use the
resources that have been
entrusted to our elected offi-
cials. *

broke that Walgreen's planned to
raze the building it's painted on,.
several residents protested.
The red caboose in the park -
and the railroad trestle in the
mural, are a nod to
Chattahoochee's railroad days.


The town was renamed "River
Junction" in 1921, and boasted the
second-largest railroad terminal in
the state. In 1941, town officials
voted to change the name back to
Chattahoochee after railroads
began to quietly fade away.


The Rotary Club also
established a memorial marker to
commemorate "every person from
this vicinity who made the
supreme sacrifice in defense of
home and family."
Still, the loss of a revenue-


producer like Walgreen's isn't
easy -to swallow for some city
officials.
"This means things stay status
quo I was looking for that one
economic impact that would put
us over. We need a second wind,"


Garner said. "We've got too'many
empty buildings this would have
brought revenue in terms of
utilities, employment and taxes.
But we'll keep trying. People have
to get off some of the high prices
they're asking for land."


For now, Heritage Park will
remain exactly as it is, Garner
said.
"We won't do anything to it.
We'll probably get the caboose
painted pretty red again," he
said.

Department of Transportation at hundreds of locations worldwide.
Distribution of the map is expected to be over 1.4 million copies. Also,
this year, the Chamber will launch a comprehensive community guide
for Gadsden County residents and visitors.
"We live in a great community and we want people to experience
North Florida like they traditionally never thought of doing!" Gardner
said. Gadsden County is not only on the map,but is now on the
highway too.


SCHOOLS from Page 1


schools in Florida, both public
and nonpublic.
During the three days council
members spent in Quincy last
week, they interviewed around
250 area residents School
Board members, teachers,
business men and women and
community leaders to get a feel
for what was happening in the
schools and how the school
system was perceived.
"In surveys, people perceived
that the board and the
superintendent worked well
together," James said. "The


majority of the people surveyed
felt like the superintendent was
moving the 'district forward.
Teachers recognize that too.
Also, an overwhelming majority
of them felt administration had
an open-door policy that made
me feel really good."
The council commended the
district for several of its
initiatives, including DLOPI
(Different Levels of Parental
Involvement) which uses five
steps to encourage parents to
become involved in their child's
education.


Council members also
commended the district's faith-
based partners program, its
clothes closet for needy students
and its parent notification
system.
"They thought that was
excellent," James said.
"And they liked our parent
expos providing meals to an
entire family for a dollar and
providing report cards at the
same time."
Other district initiatives the
council commended include the
implementation of school


uniforms for middle school
students and the continuous
improvement model.
But the school district still has
a few improvements to make -
while council members noted the
graduation rate has increased
from 43 percent to 46 percent
during the last few years, it's still
far below the state average of
88.9 percent.
James said he and school
district staff will continue to try
to improve the county's
graduation rate.

In 1996, Keith Dowdell was
elected to represent the citizens
in District 1, most of which is in
an area west of Pat Thomas
Parkway between Jeffeson
Street to the north and the city
limits to the south.
Despite challenges from
those who wanted to unseat him,
the people have returned him to


the Quincy City Commission to
represent them for the past 11
years.
Last Friday, his fellow com-
missioners unanimously named
Dowdell as the Mayor of
Quincy 2007-2008.
He replaces Sherrie Taylor
who has been mayor for the past
two years.
Dowdell said he is looking
forward, to his term and to the
responsibilities of the office.


"My first priority will be
Netquincy and to see that it gets
off the ground," he said.
The 44-year-old Dowdell
earned degrees in mathematics
and computer science from
Stillmar College and the
University of Alabama respec-
tively.
He is an administrator at East
Gadsden High School.
He previously served as
Mayor in 1998-1999.

Tallahassee man, others arrested for suspected drug activity


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

A Tallahassee man was
arrested last week after mem-
bers of the Gadsden County
Sheriffs Office Drug Unit
received a tip that Albert
"Killer" Williams, of 321
Mabry Street, was in the county
trying to sell small amounts of
crack cocaine.
Willams was arrested ped-
dling crack cocaine outside a
convenience store next door to
the sheriffs office on East
Jeffeison Street.
"A woman who had been at
the store came to the office and
said she had obesrved a man
making, what she thought was,


a drug deal"
said Lt. Jim
Corder of the
Gadsden
County
Sheriff's
Office Drug
Unit.
SWu e Williams
looked out of
the window and saw him. We
walked up the sidewalk to the
store. We were in street clothes
and when we identified our-
selves as law enforcement offi-
cers he threw the crack on the
ground. He had itLwrapped in a
piece of white tissue paper,"
Corder said.
Corder and Deputy Billy
Buckhalt escorted Williams to


the sheriffs office where he was
charged with sale and the pos-
session with intent to distribute
crack cocaine.
At the time of his arrest,
Williams was on felony proba-
tion for selling crack cocaine.
He remains in the county jail.
In an unrelated matter,
another Tallahassee man
Samuel Lee Stewart, Jr., of
8483 Lake Atkinson Drive, was
arrested after he agreed to sell
crack cocaine to a member of
the drug unit posing as a drug
user at the BP Station in
Midway.
When arrested Stewart had
several pieces of crack cocaine,
that were prepared for sale, in
his lap as he waited for the


undercover agent to arrive. He
was also charged with sale and
possession of crack cocaine
with intent to distribute and
taken to the county jail.
In another drug arrest,
Sharum Moore of Bostick Road
in Quincy was taken into cus-
tody after officers saw him
throw what appeared to be a pill
bottle with crack cocaine on the
ground.
Their suspicions were further
heightened when Moore started
running at a fast pace away
from officers. He was arrested
after a short chase through the
parking lot at Parkview Gardens
Apartments on Atlanta Street.
He was arrested and charged
with possession of crack


Another arrest made in home invasions


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

Another arrest has been
made in the day-long crime
spree that occurred in the west-
ern part of the county on April
15.
James Spellman was taken


into custody last week by the
Gadsden County Sheriffs
Department.
Spellman is one of four peo-
ple accused of several home
invasions in the Greensboro
area.
In one incident, two
Hispanic males were injured,


one was taken by lifeflight to
Tallahassee Memorial Hospital
suffering from a stab wound.
Another was beaten about the
head with a gun when they
resisted the demands for money
after four people (two men and
two women) burst into their
home on Tolar-White Road.


Later that same day, a family
having dinner was robbed of
about $300 and the male -was
assaulted with a weapon.
Three others suspected in the
home invasions, Gregory
Jackson, Becky Jacobs, and
Christina McKeown are also in
custody.


Disaster response team set for hurricane season


By LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor

It's a possibility most folks
don't like to spend a lot of time
pondering a hurricane, or a
tornado or a communicable dis-
ease epidemic in Gadsden
County.
But like it or not, it could
happen.
That's what the Gadsden
Baptist Association would like
people to consider. The group's
disaster response team, which
has about 25 active volunteers,
has traveled to. Mississippi to
help Katrina victims..rpbuilO, to
South Florida in th, aftermath
of several hurricanes there and
to Missouri to help bring relief
after a storm damaged homes
and transportation routes.
"We want to be able to help
in our county, Gadsden County,
should any such disaster occur,"
said Tom Kennedy, director of
missions for the GBA. "We can
be most effective if the leaders
of our communities in Gadsden
County are aware of, what we
can do, what we have to help us
do the job and how we can work
together."
What the group has is tools
that can be used to clear or
clean houses, hand tools to

repair houses, chainsaws to
remove downed trees and
trained volunteers.
The local group is part of a
larger state Baptist Association
disaster response effort that has
more than 3,000 volunteers and
35-40 work teams. The state
group also has two large trailers
used for preparing meals; one
with the capacity to cook for
10,000 people per day, the
other, 20,000 people per day.


"One of the things I think a
lot of people on this coast don't
understand is that if a large hur-
ricane like Katrina came
through, it would change the
landscape of Tallahassee,
Quincy, Chattahoochee," said
Eddie Potter, coordinator of the
GBA disaster response team.
"Hurricanes, you can get ready
for tornadoes, you can't do
much to get ready for them.
We've had training, and some of


us have much experience. If
we had a disaster in this county,
our role would probably be to
help existing emergency
response efforts."

More people than ever will be
able to bid on tax certificates
because the process in Gadsden
County is going online for the
first time, according to Tax
Collector Dale Summerford.
"About 35 counties in the state
are already doing it and it has had
a significant impact," he said. '
Online tax certificate sales use
the same sealed bid format in the
form of proxy bidding. "Bidding
starts at 18 percent and goes
downward in increments of .25%.
The bidder who offers the lowest
interest rare wins the certificate
and pays the amount due,"
Summerford said. Last year
2,074 tax certificates were sold
with investors getting an average
interest rate of 8.79%.
The tax certificate sale process
makes sure the unpaid real estate
property taxes are collected and
distributed to the local govern-
ments in the county. Those who
purchase the tax certificates are
not purchasing the property. The
certificate is a lien, with no title
exchanged, and must be held for
two years before the tax deed
application can be submitted.
Summerford said tax certifi-
cate sales have changed drastical-
ly in the last few years, the result
of investment firms, banks, and
corporations participating in'the
process.
"The benefits of moving the

Gadsden County Tax Collector Dale Summerford said online
tax certificate sales will begin this year.


tax certificate sale online are well
documented. It allows any inter-
ested bidder to participate regard-
less of their physical location.
This levels the playing field and
increases bidder participation,
which means all tax certificates
available for purchase will be
sold. The more bidders we have,
the more likely the certificate will
be purchased at a lower interest
.rate, saving the taxpayers addi-
tional charges once they pay,"
Summerford said.
The online sale will take place
at www.gadsden.taxsale.com
beginning at 9 a.m. on May 31
the day the actual certificates will
be awarded. However, bidders
will be able to begin placing bids
beginning next Thursday, May
10. Summerford announced that
a training session for anyone
interested in bidding will be held
Tuesday, May 8 at the Board of


County Commissioners meeting
room beginning 10 a.m.
Those who want to bid but do
not have access to the internet
will have personal computers
available to them at the William
"Bill" McGill Public Library on
Pat Thomas'Parkway. Bidders
must be 18 years old. The library
staff is not authorized to assist
bidders in the process, according
to Summerford. A personal com-
puter will also be available at the
Office of the Tax Collector.
"In order for a taxpayer to
avoid a tax certificate from being
issued, tax payments must be
received in the Tax Collector's
office no later than May 29.
Property owners may check the
status of their taxes online at
www.gadsdentaxcollector.com,
Summerford advised. Anyone
having further questions about
the bidding process is asked to


call the Tax Collector's Office at
627-7255.
The online sale is being hosted
by Bid4Assets, Inc. which is the
leading online auction market-
place for tax-defaulted properties.
It is one of several companies that
offer online tax sale services in
Florida.

Seven schools in the
Gadsden County School district
improved scores on the writing
portion of the Florida
Comprehensive Assessment
Test.
SThe district's six other
schools showed a decline.
Among the schools that
demonstrated gains on the writ-
ing test, administered to fourth-,
eighth- and 10th-graders, was
Chattahoochee Elementary,
which saw a 30 percent increase
in the number of students pass-
ing the test. This year, 78 per-
cent of Chattahoochee passed
the test with a 3.5 or higher; last
year, only 48 percent did.
Other schools that saw
increases include Havana
Middle. School, which has the


highest score of all Gadsden
County's schools with 92 per-
cent of students passing the test
this year. Last year, 85 percent
passed.
Shanks Middle School also
showed improvement with an 86
percent passing rate, up 9 per-
cent from 2006. Crossroad
Academy students also
improved, with 86 percent of
them passing the test as opposed
to 80 percent last year.
The statewide average for the
number of eighth grade students
passing the test is 86 percent.
"The schools that saw
improvement saw improvement
because of the hard work of the
administrators, teachers, parents
and the community," Gadsden
County Schools Superintendent
Reginald James said.
Stewart Street Elementary
gained ground, with 81 percent


of students passing. Last year,
73 percent of Stewart Street stu-
dents passed the test. Gadsden
Elementary Magnet School
scored 71 percent, up from 65
percent last year, and Gretna
Elementary had a 1 percent
increase over last year in the
number of students passing with
a passing rate of 71 percent.
Havana Elementary scores
declined 3 percent, scoring 82
percent this year, but the school
still has the highest writing
score of all Gadsden County
Elementary schools and tops the
statewide average of 78 percent.
James said that although not
all schools demonstrated
improvement in writing skills on
the test, county schools have
come a long way in two years.
"Our writing scores have
increased nearly 25 'percent
across the board since 2004," he


said.
He credits the implementa-
tion of six-trait writing for
improved scores, a model that
focuses on six qualities of writ-
ing: Ideas, organization, voice,
word choice, sentence fluency
and conventions, or mechanical
correctness.
Schools experiencing a slight
decline in writing performance
include St. Johns Elementary,
with the largest decline of 12
percent and a passing rate of 55
percent. George Munroe
Elementary and Greensboro
Elementary both decreased by
10 percent with scores of 46 per-
cent and 49 percent, respective-
ly. East and West Gadsden high
schools also showed a decline
this year, with East Gadsden's
passing rate being 71 percent
and West Gadsden's being 67
percent.

Student Uniform Initiative A Success!

As a concerned citizen and product of Gadsden
County School System, I would like to commend
Superintendent James and the School Board of
Gadsden County on implementing the district's
mandatory school uniform policy for students. It has
truly had a positive on all stakeholders and I applaud
your decision.
Le Baron Russell Briggs once said, "There is
always somebody or something to work for; and
while there is, life must be and shall become worth
living." For that reason, on March 3, 2007 a few of
my colleagues and I hosted a local Mardi Gras Ball in
an effort to generate proceeds to support Gadsden
families who may be experiencing financial hardship
complying with the uniform mandate.
One of my colleagues, Bruce James, and his con-
stituents made an in-kind contribution by catering the
memorable event, and sales from the Mardi Gras
masks generated a financial contribution of One
Hundred Fifty-five ($155.00) to support secondary
uniforms. Additionally, Don Gibson of Don Hair Pair
and his constituents also gave a financial contribution
of Two Hundred Dollars ($200.00) to support second-
ary uniforms.
Finally, I, Fred Anderson, Jr., extend personal
thanks to Dale Summerford, Clay Van Landingham,
Nicholas Thomas, Premier Bank of Quincy, Investing
In Our Youth, TAXES-R-US, Dr. Earl Britt, VZP
Corporation, and individual supporters fro a financial
contribution of Eight Hundred Forty Dollars
($840.00) to support the elementary uniform initia-
tive.
Because of our community and friends' generous
support of the Mardi Gras Ball, a combined total of
One Thousand, One Hundred Ninety-five Dollars
(1,195.00) was donated to assist with purchasing stu-
dent uniforms for families experiencing financial
hardship. Thank you for showing your commitment to
"Building a Brighter Future for the Students in
Gadsden County."

faced the stage beyond it where
Havana Elementary's May Day
royalty was crowned.
Teachers, too, were appropri-
ately attired for the school's first
May Day celebration in 25
years, sporting spring hats and
pastel-colored dresses.
The event was the brainchild
of fifth-grade teacher Emma
Owens, who attended Havana
Elementary as a child and
became enamored with the May
Day celebrations held there
when she was a student.
When she went to Attapulgus
to teach, she took the tradition
with her, hosting a May Day
celebration there for 25 years
before returning to Havana
Elementary, this time as a
teacher.
"This is the first time we've
celebrated May Day here in a
number of years," she said.
"The kids have been excited
about it, they think it's great."
- Those chosen for the royal
court were chosen by the
amount of money they raised
for the school, Owens said, sell-
ing candy and soliciting dona-
tions.
"The money goes to the
school fund for things the coun-
ty does not supply," she said.

Gretna considers development


By LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor

Improvements the City of
Gretna has made in recent years
have been noticeable enough to
attract the interest of several area
developers.
One of them, Lex Thompson,
is requesting the voluntary
annexation of 2 parcels of land
totaling 40 acres he owns adja-
cent to city boundaries; Corey
and Angela Poole say they plan
to bring affordable housing to
the city by putting a subdivision,
tentatively named "The
Gardens," on the two parcels.
"This is something we've
been needing for a long time,"
City Attorney Harold Knowles
told Gretna City Council mem-
bers during Tuesday's regular
meeting. "We're right at the
point where (the state
Department of Environmental
Protection) is going to let my
people go, and we're going to
have a rockin' good time."
DEP effectively prohibited
new homes being built in Gretna
on a large scale when it issued a
consent order against the city 13
years ago because of its substan-
dard water and sewer systems.
City Manager Antonio
Jefferson said he and his staff
are nearing completion of proj-


ects that will satisfy DEP
requirements and lift the consent
order.
"Staff is working aggressive-
ly to get outstanding projects
done," he said. "We have a'water
project planned with the City of
Quincy that mid-month is going
out to bid. Hopefully we'll be
done by the first of August.
That's the last item we have to
complete before the consent
order is history. Hopefully Aug.
1 we'll be marching over to DEP
and asking that they release us
from this consent order."
Council members unani-
mously approved Tuesday night
an ordinance on first reading
calling for the legal advertise-
ment of Thompson's request for
voluntary annexation.
They will next consider the
ordinance in June.
The property in question
fronts Williams and Dewey
Johnson roads, with a second
parcel across the street. One is
zoned as an urban service area,
making it possible to build sin-
gle-family housing there; the
other, as agriculture 2.
Council members also
approved on first reading an
ordinance calling for the legal
advertisement of a request to
change the land use on the sec-
ond parcel from ag 2 to residen-


tial 1.
The conceptual plan for the
property calls for it to be divided
into .2-acre lots with water,
sewer and underground electric
utilities. The subdivision will be
restricted to sight-built homes.
Angela Poole said The
Gardens will feature homes
from 1,000-1,400 square feet,
with a starting price of
$119,000. She believes many
Gretna residents would be eligi-
ble for state and federal subsi-
dies that would assist with down
payments and financing.
"We want to make sure we
attract good, quality corporate
citizens to this town, and that's
what we've got here," Knowles
said. "We want safe, affordable
housing for our existing resi-
dents but also to attract folks
from the outside. One thing you
want to look at is keeping the
work force here, teachers, law
enforcement officers we expect
to see this sell out in pretty short
order."
Council members also
approved on first reading an
ordinance for advertisement
calling for the extension of com-
missioners' terms from two
years to four. Voters approved
the item on the April 24 ballot; it
will now go to a second reading
in June before final approval.


County to pursue grant


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

The Board of County
Commissioners gave permission
Tuesday night to pursue a
Community Development
Economic Block Grant from the
Department of Community
Affairs for $750,000. The money
would be used to provide infra-
structure from the City of
Qunicy's existing water, sewer,
and gas lines to the Bradwell
property west of the city.
Bradwell proposes to con-
struct a Huddle House
Restaurant on the property. This
is the second time the county has
gone after the money for the
project. Bradwell said the project
had to be withdrawn last year
because of a mixup in wording
between the Small Business
Administration, his lending
agency and the DCA.
"It's been a learning process.'
It's not for Monte Bradwell, it's
for the people who will be


employed. I think it is needed
and I would not be pursing it if I
didn't think it was worth it to this
community," he said.
Cedric Spradley told commis-
sioners that he agreed with them
supporting the project but asked
that staff be a little more diligent.
"Two years ago we left
$350,000 on the table and last
year we left $750,000 on the
table at DCA which we could
have had. That's a lot of money.
What are we doing here? We
need to make sure that we follow
through," he advised.
In other matters, commission-
ers:
, *Approved the County
Auditing Services Contract with
Law, Redd, Corona & Munroe,
P.A. to conduct the county's
audits for the next three years.
*Approved the conceptual
plat review for Sawdust
Community Park. The five-acre
park will be adjacent to the cur-
rent park and will feature a soft-
ball field and other amenities.

SPRING FOOTBALL
Spnng football is here for all three
football playing county high schools.
It's a time to get a look at what
you'll have in the fall.
All three teanmi will have a httle
different district alignment next fall.
East Gadsden loses a team in their
2-4A dintict with Arnold leaving the
district after dropping to 3A.
The Jaguars will play district foes
Bay High, Wakulla Co., Godby, and
Rickards. Out of district foes will
include Marianna (Pre-Season Classic).
Suwannee Co., Leon, Chiles. Lincoln,
Madison Co.. and Jefferson Co
Five of the teams on the schedule


are from Tallahassee. Jefferson Co. is
coached by former head Jaguar Rodell
Thomas.
West Gadsden's 1-A district adds
a team in the new Franklin Co. High
School. The Seahawvks join
Wewahitchka. Port St. Joe, Liberty Co..
Jay, Freeport, and Sneads in the district.
West Gadsden. will of course play these
teams, as well as out of district foes
Niceville. Crestview, and Blountstown.
No one did Munroe any favors
when they re-aligned District 1-B of
which the Bobcats are a part. Added to
John Paul 11, FAMU. and Aucilla. are
Maclay, Cottondale. and Graceville.
Cottondale, and Graceville were

included Carrabelle and Apalachicola
the schools that merged to form
Franklin Co. High.

CHIPOLA IN STATE JUCO
TOURNAMENT THIS WEEK


The Chipola Indians will take
their Panhandle Conference
Championship team to Winter Haven
this week-end for play in the Florida
Junior College State Tournament.
The Indians are coached by Jeff
Johnson, a former Quincy Post 84
American Legion Baseball player.
On the team is Andrew Gay, the
son of Andy and Kim Gay of Quincy.
Andrew recently received the Scholar-
Athlete of the Year Award at Chipola.
I had the pleasure of coaching
both Jeff and Andrew, and I'm going to
have the pleasure of attending the tour-
nament with Andy.
Last year, Chipola reached the
state finals before getting eliminated.
They will open play in the tournament
Friday at 1 p.m. against Manatee J.C.
The game will be played at Chain-O-
Lakes Park.
I'm looking forward to the week-
end.


Putting on the pads: Spring football under way


by Joe Ferolito
Times Sports Editor

Tuesday marked the open-
ing of the high school spring foot-
ball period. All three county foot-
ball playing schools were gearing
up for action.
At East Gadsden head
coach Scott Anderson was
expecting 90 participants who
would be trying out for the varsi-


ty and junior varsity.
A few more players will
report later. Some are still tied up
in middle school activities.
Included in the Jaguars con-
tingent will be 24 lettermen off
the 5-5 06' team.
"We're going to do a lot of
work on fundamentals."
Anderson said. "Well also be
working in the new guys and try
to get players in the right posi-


tidns."
Anderson and his coaching
staff will be gearing the group
toward a Spring Jamboree in
Madison on May 19. They'll play
Taylor Co. in a half and Madison
Co. in a half.
The Jaguar's will also hold a
4 p.m. scrimmage next Tuesday
the 8th at their stadium. "The
public is invited." Says Anderson.
At West Gadsden head coach


Robert Jackson looked for about
40 players to attend the spring
program.
"We're going to work on the
passing game." Jackson said.
"And it's the time of the year
when you can get an idea of what
you'll have in the fall.
The Panthers return 17 let-
termen off a 4-6 team including 3
year quarterback starter Antiono
Bostick who will be in his junior


season next year.
West Gadsden will compete
in a Spring Jamboree on May 18
in Monticello. FAMU High and
Jefferson Co. will be the competi-
tion.
At Munroe Adam Reep got
a first hand look at his second
Bobcat team. He looked for 20
players out. including 17 letter-
men.
Reep's first team went 3-7


last fall.
"We hope to get an indica-
tion of what we need to work on
for the fall." Reep said.
The Bobcats will play in a
jamboree on May 18 at Aucilla.
Besides Munroe and host Aucilla,
John Paul 11 and Maclay will
compete in the jamboree. For
Maclay, it will be their first ever
tackle football action.

Traci Lewis failed to defend
her state long jump champi-
onship at the Florida Class 2A

Lewis who had blown away
most of her competition during
the year managed a 18-03.75
jump giving her a second place
finish to West Palm Beach
Atlantic's Alexis Williams.
Lewis and Williams were in a
see-saw battle all day and Lewis
had taken the lead with her best
jump. Williams then shot past


the East Gadsden senior on her
last jump with a leap of 19-
02.50.
Reshard Ford, the other
Gadsden County athlete to make
it to state finished fifth in the
Class A shot put in Winter Park,
Friday.
Ford, a junior at West

Shellcracker.
We saw mid week also a 17 lbs. Flathead and a
37 Ibs. Flathead along with 2 coolers of 10 to 20
lbs. Channels and Blues taken on live bait. That
was one of the best catches of Cats we have seen in
a long time.
The "Fishers of Men" turned out to be a great
success. 31 teams turned out to fish the event.
Mike Anderson & Chris Gullage of Dothan had a
Big Fish of 5.54 Ibs. Harold Branham & Jeny Tice
of Chipley, FL had 17.18 lbs. of Bass, then Robert
Stewart of Panama City, FL came up with the Big

Steve Stewart and Johnny Creel of Donalsonville

were small.
-The next Bass news we have is the
Shellcrackers started biting Friday & loads of cool-

The skies were blue and the hint of a breeze made Saturday's WalkAmerica event one that
turned out to be extremely pleasant for those who chose to walk showing their support for the
March of Dimes. Funds raised from the walk will be used to continue research, educate women
on how to have health outcomes before and during their pregnancies, and to offer assistance to
parents and babies who are in need of medical care. Below, three-year-old twins, Tyler (pulling
the wagon) and Taylor Brown accompanied their mother Kim to the walk to cheer on teams. Kim,
a Focus Credit Union employee, was on hand to help with the company-sponsored breakfast.
Above, Penelope Tiam Fook March of Dimes program director distributed pamphlets, DVDs, pens,
pencils and other giveaways as a way to encourage women to eat healthy before and during preg-
nancy. While organizers feel sure they reached their goal, the tally was not available Saturday.
With donations still coming in, they pain to make the final total amount available in two weeks.


HUNKERIN' from Page 4


initials on it so I wouldn't
forget who I was!
I called up my son and head-
ed to the course. I haven't beat-
en him in years. He hit his first
shot 287 yards right down the
middle. I topped my drive and it
rolled just past the ladies tee. I
clanked a three wood down the
fairway. He hit a nine-iron
about six feet left of the cup. I
skulled a wedge up to the front
of the green. I 'then hit a 27 foot
curling putt right dead center
into the'cup. Josh missed his 6
footer and tapped in for par.
"We tied on the first hole
son."
His eyes rolled skyward.
I one-putted to tie him on
the second hole. I bounced a
ball off a tree and putted in a 15
footer on three to take a one
shot lead. The better I putted,
the more I relaxed, and the more
I relaxed the better I hit my


other shots. I beat Josh by four
strokes!
Hey, I felt like the Charles
Atlas of the golfing world!
I played my brothers next. I
beat them for the first time in
six years. I'm now working
through every "friend" that has
waxed me on the golf course in
the past. They are all aston-
ished....and they want to know
where 4 got the putter! Some
have tried to buy it from me. If
they think I am giving them
David Mills' name, they're
crazy!
I told them I found it at a
second hand pawn shop in New
Jersey.
If the word gets out about
this, everybody will have one of
those T. P. Mills putters.
Golfing is serious business. I've
got to protect my "edge"!
And I'm calling David back.
I'm hoping he will make me a


driver and a sand wedge.....
Respectfully,

Dear Gadsden, Liberty, Wakulla & 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

Flowery exhibits


coming to Arts Center

this month


By LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor

Some of the region's finest
artists will add their artistic
bouquets to the Gadsden Arts
Center's Flower Power exhibit
May 11-June 30.
A "Flora of La Florida" exhibit
will run concurrently, featuring
the botanical
illustrations
of Archer
resident
Susan
Trammell.
And look for
a few living
works of art
while you're at
the show.
"This came
about because
we wanted to
honor the
women who do
these Dorothy Draper
fabulous Rh r
flowers for Robert
our opening receptions," said
Tricia Collins, Arts Center
director and curator. "I think it's
going to be gorgeous. The
flowers won't last forever but
maybe the memories will."
Twenty-six painters and
photographers will share their
interpretations of flowers for the
exhibit.
Among them is Bruce Robert
.. Frank, who said his upbringing in
South Florida contributed to his
choosing flowers as a theme in
his photography.
"I have always been involved in
art and the colors and forms of
.tropical flowers. They always
intrigued me," said Frank, who
now lives in Georgetown, Ky.
"There are so many varieties of
flora, it's just fascinating. I think
this has a very universal appeal. It
lends itself to the fluid motion of
my style."
Frank lived in Tallahassee until
2001, when he and his family
moved to Kentucky.
He earned
a master's
degree in
fine arts and
photography
from Florida
State
University,
has been
actively
involved in
the art -A
community
since the
mid-'70s.

tablet is a creative process that
endlessly fascinates me," he said.
"This series of techniques
transports the original photograph
into the realms of painting and
drawing, allowing me to
accentuate the essence of the
subject's nature."
Frank will include in his exhibit
his rendition of the Dorothy
Draper Rose, named by Jackson
and Perkins in honor of a woman
many say was America's foremost
interior designer.
The Florida-born Kentucky
artist will be a gpest speaker at


the Flower Power's May. 11
opening reception, which begins
at 6:30 p.m. at the Arts Center.
Other artists featured in the
Flower Power exhibit include
Beth Appleton, Eluster
Richardson, Robert
Rauschenberg, Vik Muniz, Tyler

Trammell exhibit
As for the "Flora of La Florida"
exhibit, Susan Trammell is the
sole artist displaying work.
Trammel said she's been
painting since she was a
youngster.
"My mother was an artist so
from the time I was 5, I was
drawing," she said.
Her work deals with the world
of natural science, and she will
bring part of a larger collection
depicting 82 species of Florida
plants to the Gadsden Arts Center
Exhibit. The paintings focus on
the flora of North Central Florida
and were reproduced in a guide to
landscaping with native Florida
plants written by Dr. Gil Nelson.
"I used to be an archeological
illustrator I drew artifacts and
worked in Belize for a couple of
years. One
of my
1# specialties
then was
specialty
stone tools,"
she said. "In
Belize, I
started to do
botanical
illustrations
for a couple
doing
research on
the health
benefits of
I plants,
particularly
pin by Bruce in regard to
t Frank treating
cancer."
Trammel works freelance from
her country home outside Archer
now, drawing everything from
anatomical illustrations of snails
to flowers in the field.
She finds many aspects of her
work rewarding, she said.
"I'm really pleased and excited
when I finish a painting and I
look at it and go, 'Wow, I did
that,"' she said.
"But the path to the painting is
rewarding too. Whether I paint a
plant or a shell, I get to know it.
In that respect, they become my
friend. And when I'm painting or
drawing, it's almost like a
meditation. It's very calming. It
makes me feel more connected to
the natural world."

verse of t te weez:
And Saul said, Blessed be ye of the LORD; for ye have compassion on me.
1 Samuel 23:21



Compassion????
'IS-. Who's ever heard of that?
=--t_ 4- WC Unfortunately we live in a society
S-"that doesn't practice this as often
as it should. In reference to our
Scripture of the week, it's taken
from the story where King Saul was
attempting to kill David. This
particular verse is Saul's response
to David's act of compassion for
sparing his life, when David found
him asleep in a cave and could
have killed him, but did not. Just
like David, we need to be
compassionate, even to our
enemies, and help those in need
around us. Whether it be assisting
S the elderly or helping someone in a
wheelchair.., Start practicing
Compassion

Favamiy Tmive This Weeqk:
Get together this week and choose someone or even another family that your Favt~U.lcan
have compassion on.

The Game of Baseball, invented in 1839 by Abner Doubleday, is known as "America's Pastime". The official rules of the game
were not created until 1845 by a man named Andrew Cartwright. It was at this time that he founded the first official baseball club,
the Knickerbockers Baseball Club of New York. In 1876 the Nation League for Major League Baseball was formed. The American
League was formed in 1900. It was with the birth of these two entities that the game of baseball as we know it today was born. The game has
produced infamous players such as Babe Ruth in the 1920's, and famous places like Wrigley Field in Chicago, Illinois and Tuner Field in Atlanta, Georgia.
The baseball field is called a diamond. There are nine players that make up three sections of the team. The sections are the battery, the infield, and the outfield.
The battery is made up of the pitcher and the catcher. The infield is comprised of the first, second, and third basemen, and the shortstop. The outfield is the farthest
away from the battery, and is made up by the right, center, and left fielders. The bases that make up what is called a diamond, are 90 feet apart. Baseballs are 9
inches in diameter, and usually weigh about five ounces. Bats in the major leagues must be made out of wood, and must not be longer than 42 inches long. The
catcher's mitt is usually the thickest of the baseball gloves on the field in order to protect his hand from incoming balls. The pitcher's mitt is the thinnest, in order to
allow a lot of flexibility. When batting, the players wear helmets to protect them, in case a ball accidentally hits them.
The object of the game of baseball is to score the most runs by the end of nine innings. An inning is made up of two parts, one-for each team, in which the teams
take turns batting and fielding, until three strikes are made. To gain a run the player must make it around all three bases and back to home base. The player's team is
then awarded a point. If the player makes it around all four bases at one time, it is a home run. The team with the most points at the end of the game wins.

WGHS JROTC


wins Big Bend


JROTC Olympiad


Local group voted 'best-behaved,
most respectful and most disciplined
unit' at regional competition


Special to the Times

Twenty-four West Gadsden
High School Junior Reserve
Officer Training Corps members
traveled to Taylor County High
School in Perry April 21 to win the
Big Bend JROTC Olympiad.
The Olympiad is an annual
sporting competition for high
school JROTC units in the Big
Bend region. The competition
consists of five competitive events
including basketball, volleyball,
softball, drill and tug of war.
WGHS took first place in softball,
first place in volleyball and third
place in basketball and squad drill.
They also won the sportsmanship
award. The sportsmanship award
is given to the school displaying
the highest standard of sportsman-


ship throughout the day. In fact, all
the judges unanimously voted
West Gadsden as the best-
behaved, most respectful and most
disciplined unit at the competition.
'They were really impressed
with us," instructor Maj. Martinez
said. "Sgt. Major Duddley and I
are really proud of both the cadets'
character and their performance.
We were amazed at the display of
tenacity that the cadets showed.
They played with all of their
hearts. What is also really impres-
sive is that West Gadsden won
over many other schools much,
much larger than themselves. The
Panther Battalion cadets once
again showed that they were like
the little locomotive train in the
story, 'The Little Engine that
Could."'

Tallavana students enjoy Science Circus


A circus of a different sort was
the destination of the third grade at
Tallavana Christian School on
March 15. Ruby Diamond
Auditorium was the site for a gath-
ering of students from all over the
area to see two men use science
concepts to entertain with balls,
bubbles, black lights, and even a
bullwhip.
Tallavana students went to the
earlier of two shows and enjoyed
understanding the science behind
simple things like bubbles. They
learned about air pressure and why
bubbles float. But, also, they


learned some tricks like how to
use a straw to blow little bubbles
into big ones. The skill of the men
was shown in bouncing huge
beach balls and juggling them.
Students learned how to make a
boomerang, how to push a long
pin into a balloon without popping
it, and how to balance spinning
plates based on the center of grav-
ity. The bull whip was used to
illustrate the breaking of the sound
barrier by the tip of the whip
which made the loud snap. Third,
grade was joined by fourth, fifth,
and sixth grades at the Science


Circus. The program was well
worth the trip.
After the show, third, fifth, and
sixth grades went to San Luis Park
in Tallahssee for a picnic and
nature walk. Since third and fifth
had been learning about nature,
animals, and habitat, this fit with
curriculum. They were rewarded
with an alligator sighting as it slept
in the sun. Birds, were identified
and the biome around the pond
was experienced.
The day was a successful learn-
ing experience laced with fun and
adventure.

Tallavana Christian 4th Grade Class


Take Your Child To Work Day at CPA


Tallavana Christian School 4th graders have been studying different habitats and transform-
ing their classroom in the process. All the students contributed their artwork to create this rain-
forest habitat. Other elementary classes were invited to see the spectacular habitat and hear the
fourth grade students tell what they have learned.


On April 26, the faculty and
staff of Carter-Parramore
Academy hosted a number of
young people for the 15th
Annual Take Your Daughter/Son
to Work Day. Fourteen young
people visited the Lions Den to
see what their relatives did for a
living. Kim Truitt, exceptional
education teacher at CPA,
brought her young son Eric
Truitt. She mentioned, "It was a
good experience for him to see
how older kids interact with one
another. He looked up to some
of the older boys and was ready
to go back with me the next
day!" Principle Dr. Willie Green
enjoyed the day. When asked
about it, he said, "It was great
fun to have the kids here."
Students from CPA also went
with.relatives to visit their occu-


pations. Keshonda Milton, for
example, tagged along with her
cousin to the Boys and Girls
Club in Tallahassee. "I got the
chance to see what my cousin
did for a living. It was interest-
ing and I had fun." Freshman
Zschiedrich Martin also went to
work with his mother at a local


day care. Martin enjoyed it very
much. "It was fun. I played with
the babies and changed diapers."
Likewise, sophomore
Shalendrea Lindsey went to
work with her aunt at WalMart.
"I liked seeing what my aunt did
at work. I learned how to us a
cash register."

Good Intentions...
Bad Plan

George Rappalyea grew up in New York City. After
graduating as an engineer, he married Ova Corvin,
and the newlyweds settled in the bride's home-
town of Dayton Tennessee. The young engineer
quickly became a prominent citizen in Dayton, get-
ting a job as the manager of a local coal company,
and becoming the Sunday School Superintendent
at the local Methodist Church. .


On May 1. 1925 only three years after moving to
Dayton Rappelyea saw an article in the local news-
paper that caught his interest. According to the
article the American Civil Liberties Union would
provide the funding to someone who would
mount a legal challenge to the two-month old
Tennessee law that made it illegal to teach stu-
dents the Theory of Evolution.

It struck the young engineer that whatever com-
munity hosted such a trial would receive a lot of
newspaper attention. Dayton. which had lost forty
per cent of its population in the preceding thirty
year., needed a civic boost What better way to put
Dayton on the map than to host a high profile trial'

The ne..t day. Rappalyea proposed his idea to
Walter White, the Superintendent of School;, and
to a number of other town leaders All of them
agreed that using a trial to promote the town was
an e-cellent idea All they needed to do was to
find somrrieone to charge with violating the law.

The man who agreed to be charged was John
Scopes a rool.ie biology teacher and coach of the
high school football team. He confirmed to the
conspirators that he had used the state mandated
biology textbook with his class. Called Civic
Biology, it included the Theory of Evolution.

With all the pieces in place, Rappalyea contacted
the ACLU, who agreed to provide the necessary
funding. Defending the state law was William
Jennings Bryan, who had served as Secretary of
State under President Woodrow Wilson. For the
defense came Clarence Darrow, the most promi-
nent trial attorney in the country.

With two such prominent attorneys about to do
battle in their community, the Dayton civic fathers
anticipated the town benefiting from the nation-


wide publicity. Perhaps, a major company might
even hear about Dayton and locate a factory there.
Unfortunately, the civic fathers had no control over
what reporters said about Dayton. and the
reporters weren't as kind to the town as the men
e:.pected. H.L Mencken, a reporter for the


t ~i, e'.:, uliun Il.e. u b' i.,ri, d Througlh IB'

Baltimore Sun. wrote an article that was typical of
those that appeared across the country it said:

Todo. ~%ith the curtain barely rung up and the Lnors
buffoonenes to come, itis obvious to even town
boomers that getting upon the map, like patriotism,
is not enough. The getting there must be managed
discreetly, adroitly, with careful regard to psychologi-
cal niceties. The boomers of Dayton, alas, had no skill
at such things, and the experts they called in were all
quacks. The result now turns the communal liver to
water. Two months ago the town was obscure and
happy. Today it is a universal joke."

National Library Week (April
16-20) was a special week of
educational activity at Havana
Elementary with the theme: "Get
it at the Library." Monday, April
6th the WHES news crew went
looking for students to catch
them reading something good.
Tuesday, April 17th students
could bring their favorite book to
school and get a sepcial treat
from the Library Media
Specialist. Wednesday, April


18th students, faculty and staff
dressed in red to show they were
"ready" to read. Thursday, April
19th faculty, staff and students
donned their hats to emphasize
the theme: "Hats on to a really
good book." Friday, April 20th
saw faculty, staff and students
"running for books" as they were
dressed in their sneakers and jog-
ging suits. To top off this special
week, there was a library/media
center book contest. The class


who came the closest to guessing
the number of books in each sec-
tion of the library was Ms.
Tamela Hinson's third grade
class.
Mrs. Barbara Sawyerr, Media
Specialist, would like to thank
the HES faculty, staff and stu-
dents for their generous support
during National Library Week. A
special note to parents: Read
with your child and let them see
you read.

The Spanish II class has been learning
the significance of Cinco de Mayo, What
the Battle of Puebla was, and Why it is
important to the United States. Mrs. Carter
has taught them the difference between the
Spanish Independence day and Cinco de
Mayo. The students had to do an extensive
research for a class presentation. They were
asked to write a poem beginning each line
with a word that begins with the letters on
that line. Each phrase should have some-
thing to do with Mexico or Cinco de Mayo.
One students poem was exceptional.

Cinco de Mayo by Candace Allen
Celebrate the day, we won the fight
In brilliant array red, green, and white
Numbers are few and supplies were little
Courageous our hearts, but our shields
were brittle
Onward we charged to enemy lines.
Dependence we scorn; freedom we'll


find
Enemies crowd us, swords broad and
sharp.
Many doubt us, we knew this from the
start
Anyone can see, we have strength at
heart
Yesterday is gone and the bright days
ahead
Onward we go, never to bow our heads.

These students not only learned the his-.
tory of Cinco de Mayo and the fact it is not
an American Holiday but the fact that it was
an important aid to our united states. If it had
not been for the victory, France would have
aided the South in the American Civil War
and this would have had and impact on the
war.
So as we approach this Spanish Holdiay
take time to remember the lives that were
lost in the "Battle of Ptiebla".
