Neighborhood

speaks out

against trash

collection site

by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
One thing is for sure, many of the residents
who live at Lake Yvette don't want a garbage
collection site anywhere near their homes.
Tuesday night during the regular meeting of
the Board of County Commissioners, a parade
of residents asked commissioners to not place
a collection site between Midway and Quincy
on U.S. Highway 90, not far from Lake Yvette
Estates near Raymond Road.
John Yerkes, president of the Lake Yvette
Homeowners Association, has a list of points
he felt commissioners should consider before
making a decision. He said to vote on a
measure with so many outstanding issues
would be wrong.
"I strongly suggest you give us an
opportunity. I can't see the urgency until the
citizens have had input," Yerkes said.
Dr. Anthony Arnold said if the Waste

Meeting on Talquin


development planned


Officials hope for input from residents


By LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor
Lake Talquin area residents will have a
chance to help shape the future of their
community by participating in a
neighborhood plan meeting next week.
County officials hope people who live in
the Wetumpka-Lake Talquin area will take
the opportunity to share their hopes for the
future of the community in which they live
and learn a bit about it to boot.
"This is an opportunity for us to go out
and interact with the public, to simply get


some big picture ideas," said Bill MdCord,
Gadsden County growth management
director. "A lot of people are not aware
we've had a comp plan since 1991 and a
land development code since 1996."
Broadly speaking, a comp plan is a
general community plan adopted by a
government that describes land use patterns
according to whether -a given district or
parcel will be devoted to residential,
commercial or industrial use. The plan also
includes transportation, public facilities and

SCorder named top

officer for 2007


SCivic clubs honor narcotics

: investigator, other law
enforcement agents in area


Lt. Jim Corder is Gadsden County's 2007 Law Enforcement of the Year.


by ALICE DU POINT
Times Editor
"I am very humbled by this
award," was the response from
Lt. Jim Corder, of the narcotics
division of the Gadsden County
Sheriffs Office,. after he was
named 2007 Law Enforcement
Officer of the Year for Gadsden
County Tuesday.
The annual award is made
possible by a partnership .of the
Quincy Kiwanis,.Pilot Club of
Quincy, Quincy Rotary, and
Quincy Lions Club. These civic
organizations jointly sponsor a
luncheon for law enforcement
officers were all of the nominees
are introduced.
This year's nominees included
Trooper Joel Clark of the Florida
Highway Patrol and Officer
Clarence Pearson of the Quincy
Police Department.
Charles Brinkley of the Quincy
Kiwanis Club listed Corder's
accomplishments as the reason
for his receiving the top honor.
"Lt. Corder's primary
responsibility is investigating
illegal drug activities within
Gadsden County. His
investigative skills has resulted in
substantial seizures, sums of


money and property which
reduced the dealers' ability to
carryout illegal activities," he
said.
Corder was credited with
cracking a case that involved a
south Florida business that is
selling unlicensed
pharmaceuticals and providing
medications without
prescriptions.
The case resulted in seized
items including $70,000 in cash,
weapons, bulletproof vests, and
other illegal items.
In addition to the tremendous
amount of work that is job
related, Corder is active in the
Special Olympics Torch Run,
Christmas Connection, Gadsden
Association for Rehabilitative
Citizens and Cops ,& Kids
Bicycle Program. He was
nominated for the award by
Sheriff Morris Young.
Sen. Al Lawson was the
luncheon speaker that told the
more than 100 attendees that law
enforcement officers need more
community support.
"These individuals, give so
much and today we honor them
for all of the work they do. They

Fugitive treks through Gadsden before turning self in


Suspect escapes Decatur County
in deputy's car after traffic stop


By LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor
A 22-year-old Georgia man
who took a Decatur County
Sheriffs deputy's car on a joy
ride on his May 11 birthday
found more of a welcome
reception in Gadsden County
than he might have imagined.


Terrell Baker, whose mother
and sister live in Quincy, was
handcuffed in the back seat of a
Decatur County deputy's car
Friday just before noon when he
crawled through an opening in
the car's security partition, and
drove off. Lt. Rick Ashley of the
Decatur County Sheriffs Office
was attending to a child who had


been riding in
the car driven
by Baker. A
15-year-old
juvenile in
the car was
'also' arrested
in the traffic
stop.
It all began
around 11:51 Baker
a.m. when
DCSO Deputy Efrain Beltran
stopped the Honda Accord on
suspicion it had been involved in


a gas drive off. Before stopping,
the car turned onto a side road off
Highway 309 in Decatur County
and two suspects in the car fled,
leaving behind a small,
unrestrained child in the back
seat.
Beltran captured the two in
fairly short order, and Lt. Ashley
and other DCSO deputies
responded to the call. After
handcuffing both subjects,

Readying for hurricane season


The Red Cross can't wait until hurricane season to start preparing.
Red Cross workers from Gadsden County and several surrounding
counties met as part of a statewide practice drill for "Hurricane
Zeus", a simulated disaster Saturday. (Left to right) Paul Dame,
Jennifer Dame, Pauline Yeomans, Earline Roberts Taylor, and
Jeanette Sickel were reading maps before they headed out into the
county. Roberts-Taylor said the exercise was good practice. "We
had to act as if 1-10 was shut down, police had roadblocks up and
we had to figure out how to get food and supplies to the people," she
said. This year 17 hurricanes are expected to make landfall.
Hurricane season officially begins June 1. (Photo by Alice DuPont)


Preventing date violence


Last week, when the Refuge House partnered with the Gadsden
County Chapter of the National Hook-Up of Black Women and Tau
Theta Omega Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. to spon-
sor the inaugural Date Violence Prevention program at Corry Field
in Quincy, not many young people from the Greensboro
Community were able to attend. But that didn't stop organizers
from making sure the students received much needed information
on how to recognize'the warning signs of dating violence and what
to do if it happens. Pictured are lifestyle instructor Mary Bailey and
Deputy Janice McPhaul. Seated, (left to right).are students Monique
Derico, Shantana Murphy, Jessica Holt, and Vontez Jackson, all
ninth graders. The wrist bands that all are wearing were included
in the packets. The packets were distributed to about 100 students
at the school.

Contemplation



There's plenty to do during the

summer months


Each year around this time the familiar
refrain of the fact that there's "nothing for
children to do."
Two things do not sneak up on parents:
summer and Christmas. But both events
seen to catch people off guard.
There is a lot going on all summer long.
From looking at the offerings at the library
in June and July has plenty to keep kids
busy. They are not babysitters but it is
clear to me that someone has put in a lot of
effort and thought to get programs that are
fun for kids of all ages.
Some kids will get jobs, some will visit
relatives and sadly, there are others who
will say they have nothingg to do."
That's always been interesting to me
when people (young and old) say there's
"nothing to do."A few years back a man
who moved from an urban area was telling
me that he like Gadsden County but there
was "nothing to do."
So I asked him what he did in the city.
He said he enjoyed listening to jazz. I
asked him if, while living in the city, he
had to drive 20 miles to find something to
do. He said driving that distance was the


rule rather than the exception.
When driving wasn't the problem, I told
him about the great jazz that was available
through Florida A& M University and
Florida State University. Then I told him
about the many jazz bands in the area. He
said he'd never read the Tallahassee
Democrat's Limelight and I informed him
that that was a great source for finding
things to do in the area.
The last time I saw him he had not taken
advanatge of the local jazz scene or any
other scene for that matter. Somehow, I
just don't believe the man was a jazz fan.
I recall one of those news magazine
shows when the reporter asked inner city
youths in New York why they hung out on
street corners. Guess what? The answer
was that they had "nothing to do".
Can you imagine that? In New York
City, there is nothing to do?
So, it really doesn't matter what you do
or what you plan, there will always be
folks who like to say there's "nothing to
do" and in this case, it really doesn't make
a difference whether the person
complaining is young or old.


f iinker down

with

K. es
SWhen we hunker down to talk, we're all on the same level. by I'esley
Colbert, just a good ole boy that likes to write.


Nick And Leon won't leave me alone!


I got caught speeding this week-end. I was
in ahurry. I had spent a busy day at the office.
Football practice lasted a little longer than I
had anticipated. I got to telling a couple of the
guys after practice about back when we used a
baseball bat as a football "teaching" aid.
Cathy had been saying since last Tuesday,
"We are leaving just as soon as I get out of
school on Friday. Don't make us late. We are
going to see our granddaughter. Don't you get
to talking! And don't lollygag:"
None of this was actually responsible for me
being stopped.
I'm not really that fast of a driver. I got to
telling Cathy about the time Leon and Nicky
Joe Stafford rode that big horse into the senior
prom. I wasn't sure if she had heard that one
or not. Well, the faster Leon and Nick
galloped ole Prince toward the gym, the faster
I got to driving that car! About the time they
charged past the flagpole and barreled through
the line of late comers, I topped the hill right
in front of the on-coming Highway Patrol car.
The blue light came on before I got to that
part where Leon and Nicky ducked to go
under the front door.....
That dadgum Leon and Nicky Joe! They
were still getting me in trouble from five-
hundred miles away and forty years after the
fact! You know, most all of the new cars
today have got that cruise control device that
lets you set your speed and forget about it. My
next vehicle is going to have one of those
things then Leon and Nick can't mess with my
driving. I could have avoided this whole deal
if my car wasn't twenty years old. I pulled
over to the side and pondered on why my luck
was so bad. Why was the police so obviously
picking on me? Why wasn't this guy out
arresting illegal aliens? Or picking.up some
dope peddlers? Didn't he have a wreck to get
to? I was about to throw myself out of the car,
lay across the payment and yell "police
biutality" when it dawned on me that I was
probably going at least ten miles over the
speed limit.
The officer, who turned out to be
exceptionally polite, courteous and friendly,
might, just possibly, have stopped me because
I was breaking the law!
He asked me where I was going in such At
hurry. Well, I started in on the senior prom
and ole Prince but Cathy punched me in the
ribs, "We are going to see our
granddaughter."
As he cautioned me about the hazards of
driving too fast my mind raced (no pun
intended) back to the first time I was ever
stopped for speeding.
I was sixteen years old. And there were six
couples in that old aqua green 1960
Chevrolet. It didn't have cruise control either.
As a matter of fact, the speedometer wasn't
even working at the time. The cable had
"come undone". Leon allowed that it "had
broken". Daddy had gotten on him somewhat
for putting a lot of miles on that car every
week-end. It seems to ine that it had
conveniently malfunctioned so as to.disguise
the exact number of miles Leon was piling up
on the "family" car.None of that mattered on
this particular summer night in 1963.
"Where are you kids going in such a hurry?"


This guy wasn't smiling. And he wasn't
friendly. And he wasn't polite.
We were on that straight stretch of road just
north of Puryear, Tennessee, before you get to
the Kentucky line. My hands were shaking to
the point that I had some trouble getting my
almost brand new driver's license out of my
billfold. All the laughter and chatter that
reverberated between the seats just seconds.
before had vanished. I yielded up my legal
permit to be behind the wheel and said,
"I...uh.. .we...uh...are going up to Murray
State to hear Bo Diddley."
I'm sure you remember such hits as,' "Hey,
Bo Diddley", "Bo Diddley is a Gunslinger"
and "You Can't Judge A Book By Looking At
The Cover". Bo was pretty big news in our
neck of the woods in 1963. You see why we
were in such a hurry. We were trying to get us
a front row seat!
I don't reckon I gave the trooper the correct
answer. Or maybe he wasn't a Bo Diddley
fan. He wrote out the ticket while I rolled over
in my mind how Dad was going to take this.
He put down that I was going 64 in a 55 mph
zone. I really got a break. I meant to be going
about 70, and I thought I was, but with the
speedometer cotiked out, I had
underestimated my pace.
We didn't get a front row seat. But we did
make the show. And a week later I had my
"day in court". Daddy had to work. I always
felt that was my second big break in this case.
Mother stood with me before the judge. Your
"Honor" did all the talking. And although he
didn't come right out and say it, I gathered he
favored Rosemary Clooney over Bo
Diddley.....
I got stopped once in a 1965 Corvair going
back to college for the second semester 6f my
senior year. I knew this patrolman. He was a
good friend of Gus Radford. And I was dating
Patsy Barham's sister. Patsy worked as a
secretary for the Huntingdon office of the
Tennessee Highway Patrol. I figured I could
talk myself out of this one for sure! I brought
,up Gus pretty quickly. And Patsy. You'd
a'thought it was old home week..... Until he
pulled out that ticket book!
He "got me" going 73 in a 65 mph zone. I
marveled at that for a few seconds, signed my
name, THANKED HIM and journeyed on
my way. He had paid my car a rare
compliment. That thing couldn't hardly reach
70 on its best day!
The polite trooper handed back my license.
"It must be wonderful to have a
granddaughter. I'm just going to give you a
warning. Please, for everyone's sake out here,
slow down."
I thanked him profusely and eased back on
the road. Out of respect for him and the
warning I was careful to maintain the lawful
speed.
But before I could pick-up where I left off
on the "Leon and the prom horse" story, my
mind couldn't help but drift back again to that
summer of 1963. Man, I hate being young and
stupid! I should have told that guy we were
going to see our granddaughter!
.Respectfully,
Kes

make seem so appealing, I'd need a
separate room to store the non-
essentials like the toaster, microwave
oven and vine-entwined basket that
holds odds and ends I know beyond
doubt I will need some day.
I don't actually watch much TV any
more, preferring to spend my nights
covering city council meetings, special
city council meetings, extra-special
city council meetings and, on occasion,
called five minutes ago city council
meetings, but on a night not too long
ago I settle in for a reviewing of The
Big Lebowski (Coen brothers alert,) a
circa 1998 movie starring Jeff Bridges,
John Goodman, Steve Buscemi and
John Turturro.
Big fun, and then the Ronco and
Ronco wanna-be products started
popping up during commercial breaks.
I found myself particularly enthralled
with a Vidalia onion slicer and dicer -
for yep, you guessed it, $19.95 you get
that AND a mincing blade along with
the deal. No more dangerous chopping
with a knife. No more tears during
slicing. Just plop that sucker on the
slicer, slam the top down and Voila,
that Vidalia will never know what hit it
and a pile of perfectly-shaped pieces
fall into a catch tray where not even all
the king's horses and all the king's men
could put it back together again.
The fact that I find that a desirable
trait is probably another column
altogether, but for now, I remain
strangely fortified by the fact that if I
owned that contraption I would never
have to slice onions again..
Only $19.95, folks.
Did I mention the Singer Smart
Scissors?
They cut through almost anything -

stacks of coupons, gift wrap, tough
denim, leather.
I currently do not do much denim or
leather cutting, and gift-wrapping
sessions are pretty predictably
seasonable, but I am being to believe,
as I watch the commercial, that I have
a real need for a pair of scissors you
operate by simply pressing down on
the handle so that two stainless steel
blades cut at a rapid speed.
Emergency room finger reattachment
section, here I come.
But! If you gently let up on the
pressure on the handle the scissors
STOP ON THEIR OWN. They are
lightweight. They fit comfortably in
your right hand OR your left hand.
And they're only $19.95. Buy now,
and you get a Lint Wizard.
That, my friends, is a difficult offer to
turn down.
Then there's the space bag, which
Ronco says and I believe them -
shrinks storage space by up to 75
percent.
All you do is throw whatever you
want to store I'll leave that up to you -
into the plastic space bag think
oversized sandwich bag zip the thing
closed, use a vacuum to suck all the air
out of said space saver and presto the
newly-squished quilt your Aunt
Mildred gave you is ready to store
anywhere the garage, the attic, the
basement, between the "P" and "R"
volumes of your encyclopedia set.
Buy now, and you get one jumbo-
sized bag and two large bags for the
outrageous price of $17.95. Seriously!
But that's Ronco for you air-sealed,
perfectly-sliced, no muss, no fuss.
The more I think about it, actually,
the duller it sounds.
Guess I'll keep Aunt Mildred's quilt
on the sofa and hand-sliced onions in
sandwich bags in the fridge.
It's a little messier, but at least that
way they resemble the original state
they arrived in.
Which is fine by me.


Letters

to the

Eciitor

Dear Editor:

Recently one of my relatives was admitted to the
Riverchase Nursing Home. When I visited Riverchase I
was impressed by cleanness and good professional care
given to patients in Gadsden County. A few years ago I
was hesistant to ever go in. I would like to commend Dr.
Kent and all doctors for excellent professional care given
there. Also, I would like to thank Ms. King and the
administration for an excellent job.

A. A. Abbey, M. D.

Dear Editor:

Last week's 3rd grade FCAT scores story was an attempt
to insult the performance of Gadsden County's 3rd grade
students. Comparing Gadsden's 3rd passing rate of 47%
to the Florida School of Death snd Blind passing rate of
16% is insulting and mean spirited. And for the record,
our children's passing rate was higher than the 43% scored
by Florida A & M University's Developmental Research
Elementary School. Shame on you!!!!!

Working

together

for

healthcare

in Gadsden

Gadsden Memorial Hospital has
played a major role in providing
healthcare to the people of Gadsden
County, and its closing in
November 2005 was a serious
setback for the community. The
current absence of a hospital in
Gadsden County is an issue of
which I am not only aware, but one
in which I am deeply involved. I
am committed to working with the
community and the leaders of
Gadsden County to help with this
problem.
However, improving the
accessibility ofhealthcare in
Gadsden County is not going to
happen overnight, and this is not
due to lack of hard work and
dedication on the part of the leaders
of Gadsden County and me. To
understand why this issue cannot be
solved quickly, it is important to
know where the hospital stands
now and what has gotten it to this
point.
Before its closing, Gadsden
Memorial Hospital was designated
as a Critical Access Hospital
(CAH), which means that the
hospital served a more isolated,
rural community. This designation
entitled the hospital to receive more
money from the federal
government, specifically from a
division known as the Centers for
Medicare and Medicaid Services
(CMS). The loss of Gadsden
Memorials operational license in
2005 triggered the automatic
revocation of its CAH status-a
status that is essential to the
livelihood of the hospital.
In 2006, I coordinated a number
of conference calls between
Gadsden County officials and
senior officials at CMS to open the
line of communication between the
two parties in an effort to resolve
the issue with the ultimate goal of
regaining Gadsden Memonal
Hospital's CAH designation. CMS
stated that it could not reverse its
decision, because any new CAH
applicant must be at least 35 miles
from the nearest hospital, and due
to its proximity to Tallahassee,
Gadsden Memorial does not
qualify. At this point, Gadsden
Memorial Hospital is working to
regain its previous CAH
designation through thejudicial
process in a lawsuit against the
Department of Health and Human
Services, which oversees CMS.
Unfortunately, this lawsuit has
severely limited my ability to talk
to CMS and has essentially
eliminated me from all negotiations
with CMS about Gadsden
Hospital's critical access
designation. CMS is not willing to
talk openly about this issue now
that anything they say could be
used against them in court
proceedings.
With many options exhausted, I
have taken this issue to senior
officials at the White House,
explaining the need for better
access to healthcare in Gadsden
County. I asked the Economic
Policy Assistant to the White
House to contact CMS and work on
the critical access issue in Gadsden
County. Due to the lawsuit, there
was little they could say about this
issue now. However, they did
speak to the $1.8 million in
overpayments made to the former
management company of Gadsden
Memorial Hospital, overpayments
that Gadsden County would owe to
CMS if they are able to restore their
original critical access designation.
In the meantime, Gadsden County
is making strides to provide care to
the community with the opening of
an Urgent Care Facility. Last
month, I was able to tour this new
facility and the hospital and hear
from the leaders of Gadsden
County. While this situation is a
complex and difficult one, hope is
by no means lost, but solving the
healthcare situation is going to take
some time, some hard work, and
some creative solutions from the
people of Gadsden County,
members of the medical
community, and local leaders,
including myself. Together, I
believe that we can determine the
best course of action for the people
of Gadsden County, and I pledge
that I will continue to work closely
with Gadsden County'to improve
the accessibility of quality care in
the area.

Federal Consumer Protection has confirmed the fuel saving described in hius advertisement.

Device may increase gas mileage by 22%


Boston National Fuelsaver
Corp. has developed a low
cost automotive accessory
called the Platinum Gas
Saver which is guaranteed
to increase gas mileage by
22% while meeting all
emission standards.
With a simple connection
to a vacuum line, the Gas
Saver adds microscopic
amounts of platinum to the
air and fuel entering the
engine.
Since platinum allows
non-burning fuel to burn,
the Gas Saver's platinum
increases the pFLrL entiagc of
fuel burning inside the
engine from 68% of each
L:.ll.,n to"'0j90% of each
gallon, a 22-' .rcrease.
Since unbumt fuel leaving


an engine is pollution, this
22% of each gallon
normally burns when it
reaches the platinum of the
catalytic converter.
However, the con\ eter's
platinum burns this fuel in
the iiil-pipe, where the heat
and energy produced from
this fuel cannot be harnessed
to drive your vehicle
But when the Gas Saver
allows the air-fuel mixture
to carry the platinum into
the engine, 22% more of
each gallon burs inside
the engine so that 22%
fewer gallons are required
to drive the same distance.
After a five year study,
the government concluded:
"Independent testing shows
greater fuel savings with the


Gas Saler than the 22%
claimed by the developer."
In addition to the fuel
s:a ings. the Gas Saver has
recei ed patents for cleaning
out the carbon and raising
octane, making the higher
cost fuel unnecessary for
most vehicles .
Joe Robinson, the developer,
commented: "Since the
goernnment concluded its
study, we have sold a half
million Gas Sa\ers. To our
surprise. more people buy
the Gas Suaer because it
extends engine life by
cleaning out the carbon than
buy it to increase gas mileage
or to raise octane."

By LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor

Every chemical has its own
color.
If Carl Chasteen, bureau
chief of the State Fire Marshal's
Bureau of Forensic Fire and
Explosives Analysis, sees that
color, odds. are an arsonist is
going to get caught.
Representatives of state
chief financial officer and fire
marshal Alex Sink hope
prospective arsonists, particu-
larly those prone to vehicle
arson, will think about that
before committing the crime.
Sink's office coordinated a
statewide Vehicle Arson
Awareness Week May 6-12.
"Arson is a violent crime
because there is always the risk
of someone getting hurt or
killed," Sink said. "This week is
to get the word out that if you
think you'll get away with it,
think again. Our arson detec-
tives are the best in the nation
and odds are in our favor."
Motives for vehicle arson
vary, Sink said, and include
thieves trying to hide evidence
of a crime to car owners trying
to get out of expensive leases.
Last year in Florida, more
than 6,800 passenger vehicles
burned, causing 20 deaths and
12 firefighter injuries. Criminal
charges relating to vehicle arson
can result in prison sentences of
up to 30 years per count.
Last week as part of the
awareness campaign, firefight-
ers set a car aflame in
Tallahassee and then a team of


Clary's Bail
Bond Agency

Florida Department of Financial Services.)


investigators went to work to
demonstrate how they could
prove it was arson.
Detectives collected evi-
dence and used a trained dog to
find traces of accelerants.
They then took evidence to
Chasteen's lab in the Pat
Thomas Law Enforcement
Academy near Midway, where
forensic chemists went to work
to find out how the fire started.
"The dog hit on where the
accelerants were -, we can find
out it was arson, whether
through fingerprints, or a
receipt not much gets past
these folks. They are purely sci-
entists here," said Nina
Banister, spokeswoman for the
FDFS.
"Their job is to prove it was
gasoline or some other acceler-
ant."


Sink was a victim of vehicle
arson around 15 years ago,
Banister said. A neighbor called
to tell her her car was on fire.
"Someone threw a fire bomb
into a car in my driveway," Sink
said. "It set off a fire in the car,
and by the time we woke up -
we had two small children- our
home was on fire and partially
destroyed."
Sink offered these tips to
help discourage vehicle arson-
ists:
o Always park in a well-lit
area
o Close all windows
o Remove keys from ignition
o Always lock doors, trunk
and tailgate
o Use anti-theft devices
o Report any abandoned
vehicles to law enforcement
authorities.

Board member, Roger Milton, is
now the manager.of:Tallahassee
Community College's Quincy
House. The facility, had been
without a director for nearly a
year.
Milton, who recently retired
from the Federal Aviation
Administration as a air traffic
controller at the Tallahassee
Regional Airport, said his prior-
ities will be student achieve-
ment, after school programs,
drop out prevention, and a con-
tinued partnership with the
Quincy Recreation Department.
"I want to set up a way to
capture their (students) imagina-
tions, start up FCAT explorer,
and find a way to reach parents,"
Milton said.
He added that the TCC
House will be useful to the com-
munity and that he will open it
to parents and students in an
effort to maximize the potential
of students through the involve-
ment of parents.
Milton, a native of Gadsden
County, said he wants to give
back to a community that has
been good to him. Growing up
in the Sawdust Community and
experiencing poverty, he credits
ordinary people who encour-
aged him attend and complete
college.
"I want this to be place where

Ten graduate from day care center


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

This is garduation season
and each milestone signals
mostly young people taking
another step in life. It was no
different for the 10 youngsters
who donned purple gowns and
caps Friday afternoon. The class
theme of "We've Just Begun"
played while the five-year-olds
took their final walk as students
at Gadsden County Day Care
Center Friday afternoon.
Proud parents, armed with
cameras and video recorders,
beamed proudly as their chil-
dren made their way down the
walkway to their respective
seats. The teacher and class
sponsor, Ruby Jackson, coordi-
nated the event with precision.
There was no Valedictorian,
no salutatorian, no class secre-
tary, and no class historian. All,


however, could recite the alpha-
bet, the Pledge of Allegiance,
and English and Spanish ver-
sions of the alphabet, the days
of the week, months of the year,
and counting to ten.
And just to remind folks that
they're big kids now, they recit-
ed the following poem:
"We are proud to be pre-
schoolers and we learned to do
well. We can play so many
games now, the Farmer in the
Dell. We have learned to color
pictures and make things out of
clay and we know a hundred
stories, we read them everyday.
We learned our Pledge of
Allegiance, our Lord's Prayer,
1,2,3s A B Cs how many days pf
the week in Spanish, multiplica-
tion tables and more.
We promise to be true to
God, our parents, teachers and
adults. We have learned fair
play and every classroom rule.


The Class of 2007 graduated Friday afternoon from Gadsden
County Day Care Center on 4th Street in Quincy.


We're looking forward to
August for it's then we're off to
school."
The class members are:
Tyson Bilal, Ja'mia Brown,


Willie Brown, Averi Bryant,
Cacia Byron, Leondria Ellis,
Gamiyah Germany, Isaiah
Grimes, TaiQuese Neal, and
Mario Sailor.

Inmates complete masonry course


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

To some, finishing a 32-hour
course in learningto be a mason-
ry helper might not seem like
much to some people. But for 11
inmates at the Gadsden County
Jail, it could change their lives.
The men, who were part of
the first graduating class, were
awarded official Tallahassee
Community College certificates
last week during a special pro-
gram. The certificate means the
men have learned the craft of
masonry, thanks to TCC's
Beacon Light Program which
teaches students occuaptional
and employability skills.
"They will be able to get
gainful employment with these
certificates. Hopefully, when
they are released, they will be
able to earn, a'living and care for
their families," said Sheriff
Morris Young. '
That's exactly what 33-year-
old Thara Thomas wants to do.
"I'm looking forward to getting
out any day now. This is a skill
that I have always wanted" he
said. Before he was incarcerated
he worked in the construction
industry at the lowest level.
"With this certificate, I have
the skills to move up. I want to
begin in the TCC apprenticeship
program for masons and brick-
layers," he said.
In the construction industry,
the men are known as "tenders"
because they attend the needs of
the masons and bricklayers.
They are the ones who carry the
blocks and bricks and who keep
the mortar at the right consisten-
cy.
"A good tender makes the
blockmason and the bricklayer
happy because they can get more
work done. The more work they
can get done, the more they
earn," said Rick Frazier at TCC.
The program also covers
Safety, how to build scaffolding,
and building/laying blocks,
among other things. All of the
instruction occurred inside the
jail compound.
The class was led by instruc-
tors like Larmar Hovey, a master
mason. Classes were held from
6-10 p,m, Monday through
Thursday.
"They were good students
and I feel comfortable with them
going out to work in the con-

struction industry. They will do a

The second class started
Monday at the jail. There are
plans for other classes to be


offered in the near future in part-
nership with TCC. In order for
inmates to participate in pro-
grams, they must be nearing
their release date.

Police: Buckle up for holiday


by ALICE DU POINT
Times Editor


ed, to The City of Quincy is joining
nltinI other law enforcement agencies
statewide in the "Click It or
"City Ticket Florida" campaign. From
May 21 through June 3 law
enforcement is giving no slack
to people who aren't wearing
seatbelts.
"This campaign serves to
protect all motorists on Florida's
roadways. These tickets will
serve as reminders and, hopeful-
ly, get people to consider the
real costs of not taking safety
measures. If we save one per-
son's life, it's all worth it," said
S Quincy Police Chief Gerald
McSwain.
"Click It or Ticket Florida" is
designed to raise awareness
about the importance of buck-
s ling up through high-visibility
events and increased enforce-
ment. Memorial Day is deadlier
than New Year's Eve and the
Fourth of July, so it is an appro-
priate time for this heightened
effort.
According to the Florida
Department of Transportation,
80 percent of drivers and pas-
sengers in the state are using
their safety belts. But it leaves
nearly 4 million Floridians unre-
strained. Data shows that drivers

and passengers who do not
buckle up are approximately 14
times more likely to die in a traf-
fic crash than those who use
their safety belt. Buckling up is
the single most important thing


a person can do to prevent injury
or death when involved in an
accident.
"It is too common for drivers
to have an invincible mentality.
The numbers don't lie. When we


see first-hand the devastating
effects of not wearing a seatbelt,
and we want to prevent fatalities
in any way possible, even if it
means giving people tickets,"
McSwain said.

New homebuyers find help, hints at expo


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

If you wanted to buy a home,
all you had to do was step
through the doors of the
University of Florida IFAS.
Center last Saturday. There were
people to walk potential buyers
through the process of buying a
home from beginning to end.
Shannon Kee was there to get
information and to look at all of
her options. Currently, she lives
with her mother-in-law in
Gadsden County. She said she
loves her mother-in-law and that
the two get along great.
"But it's time we looked into
getting our own home, though,"
she said. It's young people like
Kee and others that the expo
was aimed at helping. Kee was
making the rounds of tables that


offered information and give-
aways to everyone.
Clarence and Dee Jackson
were there because their young
family has grown to five with
three small ones who need space
to grow.
"We have three children and
we need a bigger house. We'd
like to have something with five
bedrooms so each one can have
their own space and room to
grow," Clarence Jackson said.
Veteran realtor Patsy Dixon
and new broker Michael
Mitchell were ready to help and
offer advice. They thought the
expo was a great idea and one
that was needed.
"I'm go happy that they did
this. It is great and there are a
diversified group of vendors,"
Dixon said.
Carolyn Ford of the North


Florida Education Development
Corporation (NFEDC) used her
display to drum up interest in
South Springs. The new devel-
opment, which will be located
near Wal-mart, will begin build-
ing in a few months.
"Our development will be
more village-like with homes
starting at around $95,000. All
of the homes will have porches
which we hope will encourage
people to get to know their
neighbors and provide better
safety," Ford said.
Commission Chairman
Brenda Holt said the turnout
was excellent and that the coun-
ty plans to hold another expo.
"If nothing else. we want people
to know that they can get their
credit straight and they can get
into a home of their own," she
said.

Midway officials seeking to decide on interim city manager


By LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor

Midway City Commissioners
were to meet May 16 to decide
on an interim city manager after
Paul Piller's resignation earlier
this month.
, During a special meeting last
week, commissioners decided to
have a special meeting May 16
to allow them time to review the
eight applications for the posi-
tion.
Applicants are -as follows:
Willie Earl Banks Sr., Auburn


Ford, LeeShun Jackson Fryson,
Gerald McGill, Michael Moore,
Anthony Scott, Sonnee
Thompson, who is currently act-
ing as interim city manager, and
Dennis Yecke.
Banks and Scott have also
applied for the position of per-
manent city manager. The'dead-
line for application on that posi-
tion is June 1.
During the meeting, commis-
sioners also selected a citizens'
committee with a representative
from each district to choose the
city's next city manager.


In other matters, commis-
sioners discussed, how to best
provide emergency housing
funding for Midway residents.
The city has $25,000 in its
budget for just that; commis-
sioners hope to add to that out-
side resources such as Catholic
Charities and Habitat for
Humanity to help Midway resi-
dents who have either substan-
dard housing or no housing.
"I talked to the Tallahassee
Urban League and Catholic
Charities about a workshop,"
Commissioner Quintealia Cato


said.
Mayor Pro Tem Ella Barber,
who stalled the meeting by ask-
ing that the three agenda items'
order be changed, questioned
the emergency funding item.
"My concern is, what would
we be interested in doing with
this emergency funding," she
said.
Cato said one of the goals of
the workshop was to determine
how, when and where to use
emergency funding.
Councilman Chuck Willis
claimed the city's emergency


housing fund was depleted.
"Like I said, again, we
-should have had more than
$25,000. Twenty-five thou-
sand dollars is not enough in
Midway," he said.
The attorney and other com-
missioners quickly pointed out
the city's emergency housing
fund still stands at $25,000 and
is not depleted.
The main reason for that,
Councilman James Hinson said,
is that the 'council, never came
up with a criterion for expendi-
ture of the fund.


"I'm of the opinion that
instead of using city money, we
should take advantage of the
assistance that's out there,"
Councilman Jerrod Holton said.
But Barber said community
agencies aren't always able to
help the needy.
"When. you talk about
Habitat for Humanity and
Community Action, you're just
dreaming if you think you'll get
those services," she said.
The committee selected to
pick a city manager for the city
will meet May 17 at 6 p.m.


YVETTE from Page 1


Management of another private
company had requested establishing
a waste collection site they would
have to go through the
comprehensive plan and the
Visionary Process. He said there
was the real potential for site
pollution and that the Department
of Environmental Protection could
become involved.
"I urge you to put this.through the
Planning and Zoning Commission
and go through the -permitting


process," Arnold said.
Others in the community said they
were surprised to learn last week
that commissioners were
considering putting a collection site
on Highway 90. "This is not an
appropriate place. I hope the
commission will hear the facts, and
that is we don't want this," said
Mary Ann Ryan.
Ryan's husband, Michael, said he
had participated in the county's
Visioning Process and that those


who served never intended for any
part of U.S. Highway 90 between
Midway and Quincy was ever
intended to be a garbage drop off
and garbage transfer.
"That's not what the citizens had
in mind. The county needs to find a
place off U.S. 90. We deserve better
than a transfer station," Ryan said.
Rebecca Manor, calling herself a
concerned citizen rather than a
community activist, appealed to the
commissioners to reconsider


locating the collection site. She said
the county is beautiful, but .she
feared a site would become filled
with litter and become unsightly.
Another resident, Max Thompson,
said the site would potentially open
the area up for industrial usage,
could cause environmental
pollution and at best become
"messy." In his opinion, Thompson
said, not enough thought has gone
into the site selection.
Commissioners voted to allow

long-term goals and objectives
for the growth of a city or a
county.
A land development- code
contains the rules and ordinances
that govern how and where
certain types of development may
occur.
Interest in developing in the
Lake Talquin area has picked up
in recent years, and that's one
reason county officials want to
get input from residents before
proceeding with any new
developments in that area,
"A lot of the reason we wanted
to target this area first is because
there have been so many
changes," McCord said. "Because
of that, there is pressure to
change local land use. We got


some good information from the
visioning sessions. This meeting
is a chance for people to talk
about things they might want or
might not want sign control, for
example, or buffers."
According to a press release
from the growth management
office,'neighborhood planning is
a growth and development tool to
help guide a community's future.
Through a collaborative process,
various stakeholders create a plan
for a specific area developers,
government officials, residents
and members of the business
community.
The process allows community
members to address specifically
issues like watersheds,
transportation, preservation,


conservation, infrastructure, land
use planning and more. The plan
considers the unique needs of the
community for which it is
developed.
"Neighborhood planning can
produce a picture of the
community that incorporates

Beltran and other officers
brought them to his patrol car.
When Beltran noticed the child in
the back seat of the Honda,
Ashley tried to notify a family
member to come pick up the
child. He also notified the
Department of Family and
Children Services and asked
caseworkers to come to the scene.
Deputies found several plastic
bags the suspects had thrown out
of the car and recovered a large
amount of marijuana as a result.
Beltran placed the handcuffed
juvenile in the back seat of his
patrol car, and Ashley put Baker,
whose hands were cuffed in front
of him, in the rear of his patrol
car. Beltran took the juvenile to
the Decatur County Jail while
Ashley stayed behind with Baker


and the child to wait for DFCS
workers. After losing sight of one
of the workers, Ashley walked
away from his vehicle to try to
find her. During that time, Baker
took matters into his own hands,
slipping through the security
partition and driving away in the
patrol car, which had shotguns
within.
Because the rear of patrol cars
are not air-conditioned and Baker
had complained of heat, deputies
had opened a small window in
the Plexiglas barrier separating
the front and rear passenger areas
to give the suspect air and a bottle
of water.
' Gadsden County authorities
were notified that Baker was
likely headed this way, the
Gadsden County Sheriffs Office


sent deputies to several strategic
points in the county in an effort to
apprehend Baker. Three GCSO
patrol cars parked on Highway 12
across from the airport in case
Baker tried to contact a sister in
the area.
Quincy police set up "stop
'sticks" on North Madison Street
which, when activated, puncture
the tires of a vehicle driving over
them. Police in each of the
county's six municipalities were
notified to be on the lookout for
Baker.
Around 2 p.m., a helicopter
from the Georgia State Patrol's
Aviation Unit in Albany, Ga.,
located the stolen patrol car,
which Baker had abandoned in a
cornfield behind Dowdell's, a
nightclub just south of the


Fowlstown community in
Decatur County. The car was
recovered intact and undamaged,
with nothing missing.
A clerk at a store in Attapulgus
later reported seeing Baker
around 5:45 p.m.
But it wasn't until around 10:30
p.m. Friday that Baker surfaced,
turning himself in to the Gadsden
County Sheriffs Office at the
urging of friends and family.
Baker was charged with theft by
taking a motor vehicle, felony
escape, possession of marijuana
with intent to sell, probation
violation, giving false
information to a police officer
and theft of personal property. He
was transported to the Decatur
County Jail, where he was being
held without bond Tuesday.

Gadsden Health Council meets at retreat


Once a year, the Gadsden
Community Health Council, Inc.
holds a Board Retreat to review the
past year and begin to make plans
for the upcoming year. This. year
our meeting was held on May 9,
2007 at the Chattahoochee/ RV
Resort.
Our special guests this year
included Board of County
Commission Chairman, Brenda
Holt who gave the Health Council
an update on property tax reform
and the implications it would have
on healthcare and other services in
Gadsden County. State
Representative Curtis Richardson
also attended the retreat. He gave
an update on legislation that will
afflic the health of Gadsden
tComun residents. The Health
Council gave special recognition to
The Board of County
Commissioners for all their support
for the Health Council and to
Representative Curtis Richardson


for his diligent service to the Health
Council and the citizens of
Gadsden County. Also awarded for
service was Tallahassee
Community College, The Center
for Health Equity, Gadsden County
Health Department, Premier Bank,
BASF Corporations Quincy
Division, Joe Sharp (Health
Council Consultant) and Anie M.
Battle for their commitment to the
Health Council.
Dr. Maurine Jones, from' The
Center for Health Equity, gave a
presentation on Board
Development. How can we as a
board improve to better serve the
residents of Gadsden County and
reach out to them for inpit through
various committees? Dr. Cynthia
M. Hanis, from FAMU Institute of
Public Health, helped us begin to
look at the Gadsden County Health
Needs Assessment and our
Strategic Plan. We feel it is time to
review the Needs Assessment to


omw: : sm *n* w owow 4M 0


make sure it reflects other emerg-
ing needs in the county and how we
can best move forward to address
those needs through our Strategic
Plan, which, is our road map in
addressing the needs of the citizens.
We will continue our marketing
strategy through our local cable
program "Health Talk & More...".
*We are also committed to, pending
approval from the Board of County
Commission, putting the cent
sales tax back on the referendum
for 2008 to establish the
Comprehensive Healthcare
Initiative. There are 47 million
Americans nationwide without
health insurance. In Gadsden
County that represents 13,000 citi-
zens without or limited health
insurance coverage.
.Although our retreat is about
looking forward, we also want to
celebrate the accomplishments
from 2006. The Health Council
was able to bring back over


$500,000 in reoccurring funds for
the Healthy Start Coalition.
Through the Health Council the
Prescription Assistance Program
was able to give out over $407,000
worth of prescription drugs to the
residents of Gadsden County. The
PAMS Program is happy to
announce their ability to provide
assistance to diabetic patients by
offering the test strips and lancets
for the Freestyle and Precision
Monitors through the program.
The Health Council would like
to take this opportunity to thank all
our supporters in helping make
Gadsden County a healthier com-
munity. We also want everyone to
know that the Health Council meet-
ings are open to the public. We
meet every second Wednesday of
the month at the TCC Quincy
House located at 216 North Adams
Street. For more information
please contact Lisa Crawford 875-

We Buy Cars, Trucks & SUVs!


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


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

By LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor


~Bs:an and C.J. Will picked
: Qiiaincy as the place in which they
, t,,iirned back the hands of time.
.:It took eight long months of
*- major reconstructive effort, but in
that time the couple restored the
historic F.P. May House at 339
Jackson St. to its original
elegance and
luster.
The 113-year-old
home is on the
Tallahassee
Builders
Association
Parade of Homes,.
and was open to
the public last
weekend.
"We had great
traffic I think.
half of Quincy
txas here," Will said with a laugh.
The home will be open to the
public again Saturday and
Sunday from 1-6 p.m.
Tallahassee Builders
Association Executive Director
Dale Fuller said the May House
can serve as an encyclopedia of
ideas for those considering a
remodeling project.
"This is the oldest residential
renovation project ever featured
in the Tallahassee Builders
Association's Parade of Homes,"
Fuller said. "Reno\ation projects
like the historic F.P. May home
allow home buyers to see the
variety\ of remodeling techniques
that dan be employed to re\ italize
existing homes."

the old home's skeleton while his

touches that brought it to life -
soothing, .neutral colors on the
walls, chandeliers both elegant
and whimsical and modern
appliances for the kitchen.
"My wife she hit a-homerun
with the colors, the tile. the light
fixtures, .the kitchen design -
an\thing \ou see
that's beautiful in
this house, she
did," he said.
The Wills used
memoirs penned
by F.P. Nlay and
researched
century -old
photos in their
quest to maintain
the character of
the original
design.
The two-stor, Victorian home
features five bedrooms. four
bathrooms, seven fireplaces, an
expanded wrap-around front
porch, a service entrance and rich
Shardt ood floors ranging in color
from caramel to mahogany.

and.breathing new life into this

F. P. May commissioned
Thomasville builder A.S. White
to build the home in 1893. When

passed down from generation to
generation.
It remained in the May family
until last year, when the Wills
bought it from F.P. May's

verse of the weet:
The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The Lord is the strength of my
life; of whom shall I be afraid. Psalm 27:1


The Lord My Lighthouse
Lighthouses are nostalgic things of the
past, in that you really don't hear that
much about them anymore; however at
one time they were one of the most
important buildings around our coasts.
The actual definition of a lighthouse is a
beacon; or tower with a light that sends
out a warning of shoals or dangers to
passing ships. In traveling the seas,
lighthouses are extremely important,
especially at night and in storms, to -,
prevent ships from running into rocks, ori .
dangerous shore lines. The keeper knows
it is his/ her job to maintain the flame or
light 24/7 or else risk damage to incoming
ships. A seaman learns to trust the
keeper and doesn't have to be afraid of
traversing the dangerous seas, because
he knows that light will be there. Just like _
a "brick and mortar" lighthouse is i
important, Jesus, our spiritual lighthouse -
keeps sending out that warning light when we are in danger... Because of that
we don't have to be afraid of any storms that we may face in life knowing that
Jesus is not only the keeper, but he is the light as well, and will never go out!

B4 The Gadsden County Times May 17, 2007


j B For thousands of years physicians have been performing surgenes L, on people to save L/ lives J
Surgery is the act of performing a medical procedure on an individual, in order to correct or prevent disease or .
defects of the body. The term 'surgery', is derived from the Greek term;'cheirourgos', which means 'hand work'
Today surgeons are highly specialized professionals that train in school for many years in order to get the skills
S needed to perform surgery.
The history of surgery goes back many thousands of years. Records of the first surgeries performed have
been found in Egypt. These surgeries date back to 2650 BC, and were complex operations such as Drain
surgery. Other ancient civilizations also performed surgery, such as the Greeks, Romans, Chinese, and in
India. Perhaps the most famous ancientsurgeon was from India. Sushruta is known as the "Father of Surgery" Sushruta practiced medicine around 500 BC He wrote some
of the earliest records of surgery used for teaching The Ancient Chinese were one of the first civilizations to perform anesthesia Anesthesia is the act of putting someone to
sleep, or putting a certain part of the body to sleep. in order to keep the patient from feeling pain The word 'anesthesia' comes from the Greek language and means "not to
feel'. Another physician by the name ofAbulcasis, who also cames the title of "The Father of Surgery', practiced surgery in Medieval Europe Many people from around the
world came to see him during this period in human history. Of all these ancient surgeries, there are records of many patients being cured and living for years after the
proceduTes were peffimned .
Though surgery in today's world is quite different, you may be surprised to know that there are many ancient procedures that are still performed today. almost the same as
they were thousands of years ago A rhinoplasty is a procedure that is performed on the nose, sometimes for cosmetic purposes and sometimes to help individuals that have
been disfigured, such as car accident victims. The surgeons of ancient India created this procedure and it is still practiced the same way by surgeons today But when patients
are operated on today, they go to a hospital where operating rooms are sterilized, and many nurses and staff members scrub and sterilize their clothes, arms, and hands,
before entering the room. Anesthesiologists and a surgical team aid the surgeon during the surgery This ensures that all goes well, and to make sure you do not feel anything
during the surgery, or remember anything after It At hospitals today, there are many trained professionals who are ready to help you get through your procedure and help you
to get well! So if you or a loved one ever has to have surgery, remember to not be afraid, that doctors have been doing surgery for thousands of years

Organic gardening at



HES to begin Fall term


Havana Elementary is proud
to announce that the Damayan
Garden Project has selected the
school for their next designated
"Edible Schoolyard."
It all began when Dr. Norris
Langston, founder of the David
Langston Youth Program, spoke
with Miss Cabezas about get-
ting an organic garden started
for the 2007-2008 after-school
program. She was very excited
and knew that several schools in
Tallahassee are sponsored by

ing technology in order to pre-
pare students for a future econ-
omy that will rely heavily on
