City Building

and Planning

Dept. staying

on the move

by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
For such a small department the City of
Quincy's Building and Planning Department
gets a lot accomplished. With just four people
they are responsible for everything from
construction to code enforcement.
The department's director is Timmi Fadiora.
He is has three others under his wing,
including construction and permit inspector
Cory Wilhoit and code enforcement officer
Gerald McSwain, Jr. and administrative
assistant Jeronda Street. Wilhoit is the veteran
in the office with seven months under his belt.
"We are a young department in experience
together," admits Fadiora. But when they start

Students show gains, losses on NRT scores


District scores fall below state averages in reading, math


By BRIAN DEKLE
Times staff writer
Gadsden County students in several
grades made significant gains on Norm-
Referenced Test (NRT) scores, but district
scores still lag the state's.
Last year's third, fourth and seventh
graders performed better in both reading
and math this year as fourth, fifth and
eighth graders. Last year's sixth and eighth
graders made gains in math this year as
seventh and ninth graders.
Some classes lost ground, however. Last
year's fifth and ninth graders performed
more poorly this year as sixth and 10th
graders on both reading and math. Last
year's sixth graders scored lower in reading
this year as seventh graders.

student growth relative
to school and district
scores on a national
level, unlike the Florida
Comprehensive
Assessment Test
(FCAT), which only,
considers scores of
Florida schools, James
James Brown, Deputy
Superintendent of Schools, said.
Also, the Florida Department of Education
does not consider NRT scores when it
calculates state district and school "grades."

EGHS principal pleads to keep job


By BRIAN DEKLE
Times staff writer
In a plea to keep his job, a Gadsden
County high school principal facing
imminent termination .and a team of
his supporters gave a lengthy
presentation at Tuesday's school board
meeting of the "positive things" that
have transpired under the, principal's
watch.
East Gadsden High School principal
William Harvey summoned his crew
of supporters with p dramatic clap and
shouting of "team," resounded by
school personnel and a pastor his
supporters seated in the school board


meeting board room.
The supporters rose, came to the
podium and shared good things
happening at EGHS from fewer
discipline problems to winning Junior
Reserve Officer Training Corps and
music programs to extracurricular
activities.

year.
The "D" mark was among the lowest

year.
"If your school has a 'B,' (this year),
then you can be the deputy

Earlier in the meeting, school board
members voted to defer a vote on
personnel actions for the 2007-2008

"It's about growing minds and keeping ours fresh. Yes, there's a world outside of Gadsden County,':
but all you have to do to see it is stop by the library," Edward Dixon, Gadsden County District 5 '
commissioner, said at the grand opening of Chattahoochee's new public library. Dixon was joined by '
several other local officials, including Chattahoochee mayor Jay Morgan and District 3 (which
includes Chattahoochee) commissioner Derrick Price, in expressing thanks and excitement for the"
town's new library facility. "My mama always told me to act right, but I don't know how to act
because I can't remember the last time we had a great building like this on this side of the county,"
Morgan said to an enthusiastic crowd of citizens from throughout Gadsden County. The library, just;
off Highway 90 in east Chattahoochee, is now open to.the public. Pictured are local government and

Local church to honor




local law enforcement


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

Law enforcement officers from
throughout Gadsden County and
the region will be together
Sunday morning, but not for
work. All of them have been
invited to the third annual Law
Enforcement Appreciation Day at
11 am. at the historic Arnett
Chapel A.M.E. in Quincy.
"It is our honor to honor these
men and women who, in our
opinion, keep our communities


safe. They are a special group of
people and this program is only a
small indication of how we hold
all law enforcement officers in
high esteem," said the. Rev.
Willie Hagan, pastor.
Several law enforcement
officers will also participate on
the program in various
capacities.
"In past years the officers have
had a strong presence on the
program from presenting musical
selections to the invocation;"
Hagan said.


But for those who want to
enjoy a religious service in the
company of fellow officers,
Hagan said Arnett Chapel is the
place for them.
"The members look forward to
mingling with the officers and
-their families. This day has
become a tradition that we all
enjoqy".he-said. ,
The, church is located at 209 .S
Duval Street, two'blocks off U.S.:
Highway 90. All officers and
their families are invited to stay
for dinner following the service.


City to dedicate


driving range Friday


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

The wait is over.
Friday at 6 p.m., the first public
golf driving range in the City of
Quincy will be officially
dedicated.
In addition to the ceremony,
citizens have been promised a
fish fry, a horseshoe tournament,
and a golf hitting competition and
other fun activities. The park was
the result of a $200,000 grant
from the Department of
Environmental Protection's Florida
Recreation Development
Assistance Progam (FRDAP).
The funds were awarded in 2005.
"I'm looking for all of you all to
be there," said Mayor Keith
Dowdell.
The park also has a asphalt
fitness trail with signage, a
horseshoe arena, park benches,
range netting, a gravel parking lot
with lights, and landscaping.
In other matters, Chief Gerald
McSwain advised that traffic
calming devices (speed humps)
will be installed around all city
parks. Local streets surrounding
Sunset Park, Shaw Quarters Park,


and Burmah Heights. Park have
all been listed for enlargements to
the existing speed humps. Streets
surrounding Jackson Heights
Park, which include South 8th
Street, have been surveyed and -
speed humps will be installed.
Other calming devices are
planned for Stevens Park, Hardin
Street, north Bradley Street, and
South 9th Street.
Commissioner Andy Gay asked
Chief McSwain to begin the
process to determine if calming
devices are needed on North 8th
Street.
"There was s petition going
around by some of the neighbors,
I don't know if it ever reached the
city manager. Some are for it and
some are not," Gay said.
Commissioners also took time
to honor several employees for
years of service. They are: Helen
Whitehead, five years with the
police department
(communications); Adrian
Tovias, five years with the public
works department; Robin Ryals,
25 years with the utilities
department; and Marvin Miller,
Jr, 35 years with the fire
department.


Jamestown designation to be

honored with 'Barn Day 2007'


2007 is the year Americans are
celebrating the 400th anniversary
of the founding of Jamestown,
Va. the first permanent English
settlement in the present day-
United States. Gadsden County
has been honored as a
"Jamestown," as it shares tobacco
farming and an early leader
named John Smith with the early
settlement.
Barn Day 2007 is a small event
to celebrate this shared heritage at
8:30 a.m. until noon, June 2, at
the "I Hear Hester Singing" Barn,
Sawdust. There will first be a
country breakfast provided by the
West Gadsden Historical Society,
ranging from $3 to .$5. Proceeds
go to help fund the organization's
"vital" restoration projects in


Gadsden County.
Also, there will be live music
by people who grew up working
in the barn (George Johnson and
perhaps the Hester Williams
Family Singers, as well as
others). Period displays, crafts
and personalities may also be in
the offering.
Everyone who loves history is
invited. Hopefully it will be a fun
way to gain sense of how
Jamestown shaped not only our
county, but the nation we have
today. For more information, call
(850) 627-3164, or 627-6484.
Some seating may be on hay
bales, so bring a chair if you
prefer one.

or district grades, it is a tool for
measuring student growth,"
Reginald James, Gadsden County
superintendent of schools, said.
"We are optimistic with the
results we've seen thus far and
anxiously anticipate the FCAT
scores next week."
Despite local improvements,
average Gadsden County NRT
scores in both math and reading


are lower, sometimes
significantly, than Florida state
averages in every grade level
tested grades 3 through 10.
However, some grades in
Gadsden County schools scored
above the state averages.
Gadsden Elementary Magnet
School scored above state
averages in both math and
reading in grades three through


six. Crossroads Academy scored
above state averages in reading
and math in grade six and reading
in grade eight. Gretna Elementary
School and St. John Elementary
School scored above the state
average in math in grade three.

above considered ideal.
The VPK Provider
Kindergarten Readiness Rate is
based on the scores of children
who attended VPK and who are
screened upon entry into
kindergarten. The screening is
administered to all public school
kindergarten students.
"The Voluntary Prekindergarten
readiness rates will be very
important in assisting us with our
continuous efforts to ensure high
quality care and education
options are available for
children," Chris Jensen,
Chairman of the Early Learning
Coalition Board, said in a news
release.
Seven Gadsden County VPK
providers fell short of the 250
score goal, but four of these
lagged just slightly, hitting the
230 and 240 range.
These seven are: Gadsden
Child Development Center,
Chattahoochee Elementary
School, George Munroe
Elementary School, Havana
Elementary School, Lesia's
Learning Center, Small World
Learning Center of Quincy and
Tallavana Christian School.
Twelve other VPKs did not
receive scores, as they had


insufficient numbers of children
to meet substantial completion,
according to state guidelines.
VPK providers that score below
250 must implement an
improvement plan, which the
school district approves in the
case of public providers. If the
improvement plan fails to raise
performance levels, the VPK
faces a probationary period in
which the Florida Department of
Education outlines specific
action the VPK. must take to
enhance their education program.
Chris Duggan of the Early
Learning Coalition (ELC)
cautioned the providers' current
scores are preliminary, and VPKs
may appeal their scores until
June 19, when scores are
finalized.
Duggan added the screening is
merely "one piece of
information" about a VPK
provider, and parents should talk
to teachers, observe classroom
learning and consider other
factors when deciding where to
enroll their children, rather than
simply relying on scores alone.
The Voluntary Prekindergarden
program began as state
legislation in 2002 that asserted
every Florida four-year-old


should have an opportunity for a
prekindergarten experience.
As the name implies, the
program is voluntary; parents can
choose whether or not to enroll
their child in a VPK program.
Duggan said, however, children
who attend VPK score higher on
kindergarten readiness screenings
than those who don't.
The state funds both public and
private VPK programs, which are
offered either during the summer
or during the regular school term.
The program is offered daily,
usually for around three hours.

information, visit vpk.fldoe.org.

JAs long as we think, we can be better than we are.

By Alice DuPont, Editor



Contemplation



O Our public servants

deserve our appreciation


SPeriodically the county and the City of
iQuincy will honor employees for their
,years of service. Last week the county
presented Gloria Hill with a certificate for
:11 years of service as the Bookmobile
iLibrarian. Phillip Hill, senior
iparamedic/fire safety coordinator and
iKennedy Jackson, a public works
{employee were both recognized for five
years of service.
SIt's good that our governments have
:begun to recognize individuals for the
iwrok they do. So many of them have
,thankless jobs and we, the public, often
neglect to say "thank you" to them. When
!something goes wrong, we're quick to beat
up on them and complain, but its through
ithe day-to-day efforts of the public
erhfployees that things run smoothly most
;if the time.
- The age-old grumble about seeing five or
'six employees standing around a hole and
only one working in the hole was, and is,
very unfair. Most people are simply
passingg by and don't have a clue as to
what's happening in or around that hole.
No, people do not work constantly eight
Sours on any job. There is downtime and
there is a time when you just need to take a
break. I think a lot of us take people for
granted. We underappreciate the work
public employees do to make our lives a
little more comfortable.
i


This week there are several appreciations
going on. This is EMS Appreciation Week.
It is also Law Enforcement Appreciation
Week. The FTP-NEA (teacher's.union)
will be giving teachers an appreciation
cookout this week too. The City of
Quincy's honoring its Public Works
Department. There are several days of
activities that will culminate in a social
event on Wednesday. All four of these
groups touch our lives far more than we
realize.
When we call 911, we want to see the
EMS and the police there and we want
them there quickly if something is wrong.
So this week when you see one of these
fine men and women in the grocery store
say "thank you"; they would appreciated it.
Because, believe me, they are not doing it
for the money.
Criticize teachers all you want but a lot
of us wouldn't be caught in a classroom all
day with a bunch of kids who belong to
other people for all the tea in China. I tried
teaching once and I-didn't like it; I left and
never went back. I did thestudents and the
public a big favor by leaving that
occupation behind. So no matter how you
feel about teachers or what they do, they
do a service for us all. They deserve our
appreciation, too.
And then, sometimes, its just the right
thing to do to show a little gratitude.


SI have respected numerous men in my
life. I have valued and appreciated many. I
have revered several. I have loved a few. I
have been absolutely afraid of only one!
SClarence Carter was not the biggest man I
ever saw. Although, believe you me, he
,was big enough to get the job done! He
klidn't yell the loudest. Although, I have
heard him raise his voice on occasion. He
didn't threaten and rant and rave. But he
wouldd have if he wanted to.....
I met him in the fall of 1965. I was
listening to the head football coach at the
University of the South welcoming the
incoming freshman. I noticed Coach Carter
standing over to the side. He didn't say a
word. He didn't hardly move. I wasn't sure
he was breathing. He was looking the
whole lot of us over with, as John Stewart
paid later, a fair amount of disdain. I tried
to concentrate on the talk.....but I kept an
pye on the big, silent one. I was
intimidated, frightened and almighty
nxious... .and we hadn't even gotten to the
field yet!
i As we lined up for practice that first day,
Coach Carter circled in and amongst us
muttering loud enough for all to hear, "I
Pon't like freshman. Most of you won't
nake it. I like to see how many I can run
off; I've never seen such an out of shape
group. They get softer every year...."
SCoach Carter took it on himself to un-
soften us up some. When you couldn't take
another step....he showed up behind you,
and guess what? You took another step!
And another one and another one.....When
you were about to drop from the heat, he
appeared out of the haze, "It's not hot, son.
We're just getting started. I'll tell you
When it's hot....."
i I was too afraid to speak to him. Even
when he got right in my face and peered all
ihe way down into my soul and shouted-I
couldn't get the expected "yes sir" or "no
irf" out. I just nodded my head the
direction I prayed he wanted it to go.
i The upper classmen filled us "new guys"
in on Coach Carter. He was an All
American at the University of Wyoming.
He lead their defense for three years and
hear 'bout single handedly beat Texas Tech
in the 1956 Sun Bowl. They said he was
the meanest player ever to go through the
Wyoming program. After he broke one of
bis own running back's legs in practice
they didn't let Coach Carter scrimmage
With the team his last two years. Nobody
could block him. Or slow him down.,
SSomehow, none of that surprised me one
bit.
SThe freshmen were set apart by a strip of


white athletic tape across the front of our
helmets. Our names inked on the tape made
us readily identifiable. Coach Carter,
naturally, completely ignored all of the
formalities. We hadn't "earned" the right to
be called by name. It was, "hey, you" or
"freshman meat", "get over here and stand .
right there and don't let anybody block you
off-your feet."
I, of course, would immediately get run
over by the pulling guard, the fire snorting
fullback and the 240 pound running back.
As I struggled to my feet, Coach Carter just
shook his head and mumbled "freshmen". I
would have gone home but I was afraid he
would find out where I lived and come
after me.
SI got hurt and he was the first person that
showed up at the hospital. I was looking
around for a scalpel, bedpan, meat
cleaver-anything to defend myself! He
didn't think you ought to "lay out" of
practice for any reason. I didn't stand a
chance but I thought I might get one blow
in-
"Kes, are you alright?" I thought I was
dreaming. He knew my name. "Listen, an
injury like this takes time. You just hang in
there." He stayed for an hour. Mostly
talking football, broken bones, Sewanee
and hospitals....
There might be another side to this
guy.....but it might have been the lick on
my head!
During baseball practice he would hit
vicious line drives off my shin. I was
catching as many as I could to keep from
getting killed. But at night he would stop
by the dormitory room and tell me to "find
one of those big Amazon women to
marry". He would actually laugh.
We rode those Checker limousines to
baseball games. Coach Carter drove
because, in his own words, "I don't get
tired". He would do room checks to see if
we made curfew on those spring trips. He'd
watch what you ordered at the post game
meals. He never quit overseeing,
suggesting, nudging or.teaching....
It was a process with Coach. But
somewhere during our four year stay, he
put you in his care. I'm not sure how you
got there. And some made it quicker than
others. But once there, you had a lifetime
friend.
The day we graduated he came around to
congratulate us. I was still afraid of him but
I realized how much better I was for our
relationship. I tried to thank him-but this
time out of such deep respect-I couldn't

The Random House Unabridged
Dictionary defines the word
"memorial" as "something designed to
preserve the memory of a person,
event, etc., as a monument or a
holiday."
Some people see a cookout or a trip
to the beach as a frivolous way to
spend Memorial Day weekend; I see it
as a celebration of the freedoms those
who went to war won for us and as a
way to thank them for having the
continued right to do so.
There is room for solemnity, yes;
William Tecumseh Sherman's famous
"War is hell" quote reminds us that
even those who survive war bear scars
on their souls that are not easily
erased.
As of May 16, 3,401 U.S. soldiers
have died in the Iraq war and 25,378
have been seriously wounded. That's

pretty close to the number of soldiers
killed in the Civil War 3,865 and
climbing closer to the number of
soldiers killed in World War I 4,743.
But on your way to place flowers on
someone's headstone, stop to smell
them. When you attend a Memorial
Day service, recognize the great price
those who lost their lives paid, and
even the circumstances under which
they paid them far from home and
loved ones, far from familiarity,
serving and suffering so that we might
continue to enjoy the privilege of
living in a free country.
Then have some friends over for
hamburgers, or pack up and head to
the beach, or attend the church of your
choice or protest a city, county, state
or federal government action.
Because that's what they fought for,
and that's worth remembering, too.

Editor:
I feel the citizens of Gadsden County must remind our
elected officials that the law applies to all of our citizens
equally. And that we all must adhere to the laws of the
land. Even though you are elected you are not above the
law of the lands. Even though you are elected you are not
above the law that'govers the people of this great nation.
And in saying this I am saying that wd can not circumvent
the law for our friends and campaign supporters. I can say
the majority of the commissioners we have in place will
propel this county into state of unity, equality, and
economic prosperity, but there are a few elected officials
that want to remain in the Good Ole Boy.Club. This
Club believes in maintaining racial and economic
inequality within this county. All of the Good Ole Boys
are not Caucasians; a few are African Americans.
Have you ever asked yourself why there is not a real
swimming pool in each municipality, a boys and girls dub
in each school in each community, why your school board
meetings are not televised for citizens, what could the
school board have to hide? While you consider the answer
to these questions, let me give you something else to think
about. If the county passed 3 to 2 to have two boys and
girls dubs in the county then why won't the school board
and superintendent allow the use of two nice schools for
our children to use in Quincy and Chattahoochee? The
only summer programs we have are for children that need
help, but what about offering programs for our children
that worked hard, made good grades, and were successful?
In the past those children that were successful had to stay
home or travel to Tallahassee for activities. Those hard
working children have earned the right to use those
facilities. These children's parents paid taxes for the use of
those schools too, so "successful children" deserve good
programs.
SSchool board, is this one of those issues where "you talk
the talk but you refuse to walk the walk?" Remember, "No
Excuses" is your motto. Do we want our children to be
successful? If so we must provide them with the best
environment in order to achieve success. We do not want
our successful children in inadequate facilities that do not
express success. Therefore, the environment for the boys
and girls club should not be abandoned schools that have
been vandalized, but your best, most accessible schools.
Now let's talk about the hospital. Let's tell the truth. The
original Gadsden County Hospital was never built for
African-Americans. Those that oppose the reopening of
the hospital will try to tell you that it is not about need,
but I sa'j it is about greed. The Good Ole Boy System that
set up the Trust Fund set it up for its own use, not for
African-Americans. There is approximately ten million
dollars or more in that Trust Fund. They feel that if the
hospital reopens now under the present County
Commission, they will lose control of that Trust Fund
Money. That is why they are stalling to control the next
County Commission election in 08 and therefore control
the Trust Fund Money. Ask yourself, who stands to profit
if the hospital does not reopen? Get a cue, which bank is
this money in? The money trail will lead you to the
perpetrators. The citizens of Gadsden County must realize
the health of one citizen affects the health of all citizens of
this county. It is the, "Old Shell Game," you must keep
your eyes on the hands and the money if you don't want
to lose.
You may not agree with me but just think about what I
have said.

This Memorial Day, we must call
for a stop to the sacrifice of our
soldiers and condemn all those who
demand it. It is only by doing so
that we can truly honor not only our
dead, but also our living: American
soldiers who have the courage to
defend their freedom and ours.

Memorial Day: Honor


sacrifice by surviving


What do

we owe our

soldiers?
by Alex Epstein, junior fellow at
the Ayn Rand Institute
Every Memorial Day, we pay
tribute to the American men and
women who have died in combat.
With speeches and solemn
ceremonies, we recognize their
courage and valor. But one fact.
goes unacknowledged in our
Memorial Day tributes: all. too
many of our soldiers have died
unnecessarily-because they were
sent to fight for a purpose other
than America's freedom.
The proper purpose of a
goverment is to protect its citizens'
lives and freedom against the
initiation of force by criminals at
home and aggressors abroad. The
American government has a sacred
responsibility to recognizethe
individual value of every one of its
citizens' lives, and thus to do.
everything possible to protect the
rights of each to life, liberty,
property, and the pursuit of
happiness. This absolutely includes
our soldiers.
Soldiers are not.sacrificial objects;
they are full-fledged Americans
with the same moral right as the
rest of us to the pursuit of their own
goals, their own dreams, their own
happiness. Rational soldiers enjoy
much of the work of military
service, take pride in their ability to
do it superlatively, and gain
profound satisfaction in protecting
the freedom of every American,
including their own freedom.
Soldiers know that in entering the
military, they are risking their lives
in the event of war. But this risk is
not, as it is often described, a .
"sacrifice" for a "higher cause."
Whenthere is a true threat to
America, it is a threat to all of our
lives and loved ones, soldiers
included. Many become soldiers
for precisely this reason; it was, for
instance, the realization of the
threat of Islamic terrorism after
September 11--when 3,000
innocent Americans were:
slaughtered in cold blood on a
Srandomii Tuesday mtriii g--that
V prompted so many to join the
m military. e
For an American soldier, to fight
for freedom is not to fight for a
"higher cause," separate from or
superior to his own life--it is to
fight for his own life and happiness.
He is willing to risk his life m time
of war because he is unwilling to
live as anything other than a free
man. He does not want or expect-to
die, but he would rather die than
live in slavery or perpetual fear. His
attitude is epitomized by the words
of John Stark, New Hampshire's
most famous soldier in the
Revolutionary War: "Live free or
die."
What we owe these men who
fight so bravely for their and our
freedom is to send them to war only
when that freedom is truly
threatened, and to make every
effort to protect their lives during
war--by providing them with the
most advantageous weapons,
training, strategy, and tactics
possible.
Shamefully, America has
repeatedly failed to meet this
obligation. It has repeatedly placed
soldiers in harm's way when no
threat to America existed--e.g., to
quell tribal conflicts in Somalia,
osnia, and Kosovo. America
entered World War I, in which
115,000 soldiers died, with no clear
self-defense purpose but rather on
the vague, self-sacrificial grounds
that "The world must be made safe
for democracy." America's
involvement m Vietnam, in which
56,000 Americans died in a fiasco
that American officials openly
declared a "no-win" war, was
justified primarily in the name of
service to the South Vietnamese.
And the current war in Iraq--which
could have had a valid purpose as a
first step in ousting the terrorist-
sponsonng, anti-American regimes
of the Middle East--s responsible
for thousands of unnecessary
American deaths in pursuit of the
sacrificial goal of "civilizing" Iraq
by enabling Iraqis to select any
government they wish, no matter
how anti-American.
In addition to being sent on ill-
conceived, "humanitarian"
missions, our soldiers have been
compromised with crippling rules
of engagement that place the lives
of civilians in enemy territory
above their own. In Afghanistan we
refused to bomb many top leaders
out of their hideouts for fear of
civilian casualties; these men
continue to kill American soldiers.
In Iraq, our hamstrung soldiers are
not allowed to smash a militarily
puny insurgency--and instead must
suffer an endless series of deaths by
an undefeated enemy.
To send soldiers into war without
a clear self-defense purpose, and
without providing them every
possible protection, is a betrayal of
their valor and a violation of their

Parent threatening law suit over alleged pepper spray incident


By LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor

The mother of a Carter-
Parramore Academy student
says she plans to sue the school
district over Principal Willie
Green's use of pepper spray on


her daughter.
Attorney Phelicia Stiell said
last week that Shenika Gunn
contacted her after her 15-year-
old daughter was sprayed with
pepper spray during a fight with
another girl at the school. The
other child was also sprayed


with pepper spray.
"The only person who can
possess pepper spray is a
trained law enforcement and it
then can only be used for self-
defense," Stiell said. "Willie
Green was not attacked."
The incident occurred Feb.


22.
Gadsden County Schools
Superintendent Reginald James
said the matter.is under investi-
gation.
"The Department of
Children and Families and the
Department of Education are


investigating, and we always do
an internal investigation," he
said. "We rendered a reprimand
- he violated School Board pol-
icy. It's a very unfortunate situa-
tion."
Still, Stiell said she plans to
move forward with the lawsuit.


"I think it's unconscionable,"
she said. "The next day, he
(allegedly) used it on another
child. I'm not trying to create
harm for Mr. Green. I just don't
know if he's in the right place.
Now this child has fear can she
trust this man? It's frightening."

get the words out. He shook my
hand and looked me in the eye.
He knew! He always knew!
As the years rolled by I thought
of:him often. When I met fellow
Sewanee grads, they all had a
Coach Carter story to tell. It is
amazing the impact one guy has
had on so many lives. And you
can bet I've never quit anything
since the day I graduated. I
figured he find out if I did and
come looking for me.
We had a baseball reunion last
month at Sewanee. Coach Carter
was there. I hadn't seen him in 35
years. I was still afraid of him.
He hugged my neck, told me he
loved me, and both of us cried.
There is a lot more to an
education than an A in biology or
a B+ in social sciences....
.Last week it was announced
that Coach Clarence Carter had
been elected to the University of
the South's Athletic Hall of
Fane. I cried again. I was that
proud for him! I thought it was a
special honor that was long
overdue. And I thought of that
stare at our first meeting, the
miles I had run under his
watchful eye, the nights he
visited the dormitory room and
baseball rockets ricocheting off
my skinny legs. I reckoned that I
had passed some kind of test just
surviving the years with him.....
And I would jump at the chance
to do it all over again!
Thanks, Coach.
But I never did get up the
courage to tell him I didn't marry
"one of those Amazon women".

Love and Respect,

Kes

Mitchell to sign prints for fund raiser


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

Quincy native and interna-
tionally known artist Dean
SMitchell will make a visit back
to Quincy June 1 and 2 to help
raise money for the Redeemed,
Inc. Mitchell has volunteered to
Sign print reproductions of his
"Wilson House" watercolor.
The signing will be held at
the Gadsden Arts Center
Saturday, June 2, from 2 p.m. to
5 p.m. and the prints sell for $25
each. All of the proceeds from
print sales will go to Redeemed,
Inc. to help complete renova-
tions on the Wilson House.
The house, according to
Redeemed Executive Director
Annie Berry, will be used as a
transition house for women who
have been released from jail.
Mitchell chose this way of
- helping because the importance
of the Wilson House in his body
of work.
"When I found out they were
Renovating the house, and the
purpose it was going to be used
Sfor, I thought it was great,"


Dean Mitchell will sign prints of his famous "Wilson House"
watercolor Saturday, June 2, at the Gadsden Arts Center. .


Mitchell said.
His struggle to become a rec-
ognized artist is well known in
the art community. He credits
his success with hard work and
the never give up spirit instilled
in him by his grandmother, who
reared him. Mitchell said his life
as an artist began when she pur-
chased a paint-by-numbers set
for him as a child.
To date, he has acheived


enormous success winning hun-
dreds of art prizes over the
years. His paintings hang in
major museums around the
county.
"Mitchell's art is a homage to
the African-American world he
grew up in. His paintings cele-
brate the dignity and persever-
ance of family and friends," said
Steve Alpert of Art Works
Media in New York City.

educators were issued a voucher
.and a coalition staff member
was assigned as their "shopping
helper"; lending a helping hand


in evaluating the age-appropriate
use of items, keeping track of
items being purchased, as well
as, finally loading the inventory .
into cars/trucks.
The early education materials

social, emotional, and physical
development in children. Some
of these materials include:
books, building blocks, art
materials, math manipulatives,
language arts tools, -sand-and-
water play toys, and much more.
The Coalition is continually
assessing the early learning pro-


grams and will assess the usage

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.

Down the hall is one of two
preparation rooms, where
chemists extract samples from the
evidence by suspending a carbon
membrane into the evidence
container, sealing it, and heating
'it in an oven. As it is heated, any
trace level of organic chemical
will rise to the surface and attach
itself to the carbon membrane.
"It's extremely effective at
removing chemicals," Chasteen
said.
That done, the extract is taken
across the hall to the instrument
room. :By using a gas
chromatograph with mass
selective detectors chemists can
analyze the samples, which are
now contained in vials, and
collect data from them.
"It's extremely high tech,"
Chasteen noted.
Vials of samples are placed on a
revolving tray on the machine,
after which a robotic arm moves
over each vial, extracts a sample
and injects it into a port in the
Schromatograph.
SThe machine then heats samples
to 280 degrees Celsius. Whatever
was injected into the machine is
immediately vaporized, and


pushed by helium into a fused
silica capillary column so thin it
resembles a copper wire.
Chasteen says most ignitable
matter carries the same one or
two components that tend to bond
all the way through, the tube.
Once the compounds are
separated into individual
components, chemists can get a
two-dimensional graph of the
components' known pattern and
have a better idea of what they
are dealing with.
"Every molecule will break into
a characteristic set of fragments.
Gas has a lot of aromatic
compounds, which have a lot of
fragments that weigh 100, 91,
134 atomic mass units," he said.
Two of the lab's three gas
chromatographs are in constant
use; four analysts each work a
little over 1,100 per person in a
year. The other chromatograph is
kept in reserve for backup or
research.
Once an analyst renders an
opinion on what he or she
believes the sample to be, it is
submitted to Chasteen. If he


agrees with the opinion, he sig s
the report and gives it (to
investigators. If he disagrees,,ie
and the analyst reevaluate tie
sample.
Analysts are only able to
positively determine whether-an
accelerant was used 50 percentpof
the time, Chasteen said.
"The bottom line for us is, ifWe
cannot resolve all data as to te
identity we will call it negative "
he said. "So many times wl4at
you're looking for is similar tp
what you're looking at it against.
Thirty percent of the time, we
find it's gasoline. Twenty percent
of the time, it's something else."
Prep room number three .is
dedicated to looking for latent
fingerprints; analysts use prep
room number four for identifying

PLANNING from Page 1


to talk about their
-accomplishments so far, one
-would think they have been
together for years. In the
,department, there are four
divisions. They are: planning,
'development review approval,
S code enforcement, and
construction permit and
inspection.
PLANNING
This division is responsible for
all zoning issues and makes sure
they are compatible with the
comprehensive plan. They hold
pre-development meetings, land
use complaince determinations,
approve preliminary and final
plats, conduct environmentally
sensitive land surveys, and review
the historic preservation requests.
The Planning Development
Review Board and the Historic
Board are the citizen review
boards that sit in review. Fadiora
is in charge.

DEVELOPMENT
REVIEW/APPROVAL
This division also conducts
redevelopment meetings,
conducts concurrency reviews,
reviews site plans, reviews and
approves strom water, planned
unit development, and reviews
and approves subdivisions.
The Planning Development
"'review Board and the Historic
"Board are the citizen review
boardss that sit in review. Fadiora
'i in charge.

S CODE ENFORCEMENT
'/This division sites dilapidated
housess and abandoned vehicles on
premises, sites unpremitted use of
property and checks business and
occupationall licenses. The Code
enforcement Board is the citizen
'review board. McSwain is in
'charge.

CONSTRUCTIONO N PERMIT &
INSPECTION
This division conducts
"construction plan reviews,
'consudcts life safety inspections
"as well as construction inpesction
4a'nd mechanical, plumbing, and
'riechainical reviews. The
'Construction Licensing
Board/Board of Adjustment and
'Appeal is the citizen .review
board. Wilhoit is in charge.
"They have made a concerted to
educatee the puhliti, and to work
"With them to solve problems on
*the front end. "We're not picking
on anyone. We want the citizens

code violations since January. (Photo by Alice Du Pont.)


to get the right information before
they begin a project," Wilhoit
said.
No one, they said, should start
any home improvement project
without calling the planning or
permitting department. Fadiora
reconmnends that citizens do three
things before they start a project.
"They should employ only a
licensed contractor. They should
be sure the .contractor has
obtained the proper permits from
us and finally, they should ask to
see the permits and the
contractor's license or they can
call us," he said.
. It's easier, they agree, to get it
right the first time. It will save
them both time and money,
according to McSwain.
"If I have to issue a stop work
order because of improper permits
or unlicensed contractor it will
mean a fine and a delay," he said.
As the code enforcement officer
his job includes protrolling the
city to make sure that no
unpremitted structures .are going
up.
"We're not being mean. It really
is a safety issue. If it is not put up
correctly and inspected a roof
could collapse on the homeowner
or injure someone and cause the
homeowner lots of problems in
terms of liability," Wilhoit said,
adding, "these are life issues
because if. a .structure cannot
withstand 110 mile per hour
winds, it could blow off, injure


the family or blow onto the
neighbor's property."
Also,many homeowners may
not know that when the sell their
home, the proper permits must be
available for prospective
homebuyers to see.
The permits for any new
addition begins at $85 each and
the. fee goes up according the
value of the project.
When city commissioners
decided that they had enough of
abandoned cars, dilapidated
house, and over grown lots and
asked that the code enforcement
office begin an aggressive effort
to clean up the city, some people
complained while others said it
was about time.


There were come complaints
and there were people who
accused city officials of singling
them out. Now, McSwain said,
things have changed. Citizens are
voluntarily cleaning up their
property after they receive a
citation that their property is out
of compliance.
"I would say 80 percent will
remedy the problem once they
have received the letter we send
informing them of the problem.
The response has been wonderful
from the public and we are
cleaning up the city," he said.
For that other 20 percent,
McSwain said, the division makes
every attempt to work with the
orioerty owner to solve the
problem. The biggest problems
have been vehicles that are not
operational and are not registered.
"These vehicles should be out of
the sight of the public and I'm not
talking about under a car cover.
Behind the house won't work
either. If I can get into a
neighbor's yard and take a picture
of it, it is out of compliance," he
said.
Of course, if the property owner
still doesn't think they have been
treated fairly, they can appeal to
the Code Enforcement Board. The
process is long and could cost the
property owner more inthe end.
"We had one property owner
who ended uo with more fines
than the property was worth.
Once they have gone through the
process and if they are found out
of compliance, they fines begin at
$250 a day," McSwain said.
The department also handles the
city's four cemeteries. "We own
Sunnyvale, Hillcrest, Eastern and


Western. Each plot costs about
$450 but they price will go up
each October until it reaches
$600," McSwain said.
While many of the sales are
through funeral homes, McSwain
said citizens can come to City
Hall to make the purchase. "I can
take them to the cemetery and
show them where their plot is
located and I will give them a
deed just like any other property


sale," he said.
Finally, another little know
service can be a good thing for
renters. "We will go out and
inspect a rental property if we get
a complaint from the renter and if
the landlord of out of compliance,
we can site them for the
infraction," Wilhoit said.

Building and Planning
Department t 627-7681.


Eggs in One Basket

I'm sure you have heard it said many time before, 'Never put
all of your eggs in one basket". If the basket is dropped all
therein is broken and what you are left with a basket full of
disappointment. I'm disappointed today because we as
African-Americans have put our eggs in the Democratic
Party far too long. To the point it has become a hurt rather
than help. I'm mindful of the words of the Rev. Al Sharpton
during the presidential debates when he said "that African-
Americans carry the Democratic candidates to the white
house buy they leave with the swing voters". To bluntly put
it they solicited your vote but are loyal to someone else. With
the dilemma we face in Gadsden County with the local
Hospital which is vital to everyone regardless of race, color,
or creed we need the help of anyone that would be so kind to
help. One should ask themselves how is it that ours U.S.
Congressmen (Alan Boyd, Sen. Bill Nelson and Mel
Martinez) can be elected to Congress with the majority vote,
but turn a deaf ear to what the majority want and need in this
County. The feuding over the reopening of the local Hospital
in my opinion is centered on three things. (First) trust funds
(Second) who may or may not be awarded contracts if the
Hospital is reopen (Third) the make Up of the Board of
County Commission. Either our Congressmen aren't con-
scious of these facts or apart of it. Either our Congressmen
aren't conscious of these facts or apart of it. As the old folks
would say "something in the milk ain't clean". One by one I .
am going to explain these three issues to you later on. It's a
shame that Greed has taken three issues to you later on. it's a
shame that Greed has taken center stage over the citizen's
health. If our U.S. Congressmen Allen Boyd, Bill Nelson and
Mel Martinez feel that they can maintain their seats without
'the support of African-Americans they should face the cam-
eras and say so. It-is of the utmost importance that we as
African- Americans cease from voting for the party and start
voting for the person that will serve you best whether
Democrat, Republican, Independent, etc,. "Remember the
desire of a man is his kindness and a poor man is better than
a liar" (Proverb 19:22), in other words the way a person treat
you is the way they desires to be treated. It's time to let our
U.S. Congressmen know our vote comes with Accountability.
.
Thanks for your encouraging words and spiritual support i

SPRING FOOTBALL WRAPS UP
This past week-end saw the close of
the spring football season for the coun-
ty's football playing schools.
East Gadsden. West Gadsden, and
Munroe vere all in action.
Munroe defeated Maclay pretty eas-
ily in the Aucilla Jamboree and West
Gadsden lost both their halves to
FAMU High and Jefferson in
Monticello Fnday nght. East Gadsden
defeated Taylor Co. and lost to
Madison Co. in the Madison Co.
Jamboree Saturday.
All three teams appeared to escape
the jamborees relatively free of
injuries. All three had some good
moments, but, coaches of all three
teams found a lot of things that need to
be worked on.lt will be a busy summer
for all three teams.
I covered all three jamboree's. The
best team 1 saw in any of them was
Madison Co.. who once again has a
fast. strong, and deep team.
Expect the Cowboys to make a lot
of noise again next fall.


Panthers fall twice in jamboree


RFM Athletic Banquet


By JOE FEROLITO
Times Sports Editor

"We met and exceeded our
expectations," East Gadsden
head coach Robert Jackson said
about his team's spring football
season.
That, despite the fact they
lost to FAMU 8-3 and Jefferson
Co. 12-7 in jamboree action
halves last Friday night in
M1onticello.
Both losses could have easily
been wins. The Panthers led in


both contests. Late fumbles cost
West Gadsden in both halves.
In the first half the Panthers
led FAMU 3-2 on a Jose
Caldron 24 yard field goal when
FAMU returned a fumble 32
yards for a touchdown as West
Gadsden was trying to run the
clock out.
In the second half a 5-yard
touchdown run by Travis
Hinson, and Caldron's pat kick
had the Panthers up 7-6 late in
that contest. Again a fumbled
was returned for a touchdown


helping Jefferson Co. pull out a
win.
"We wanted to win both
halves." Jackson said. "The
fumbles hurt, but, first of all
FAMU and Jefferson have expe-
rienced teams, I was very
pleased about the way we
banged heads with them."
Jackson felt good about sev-
eral players, especially quarter-
back Antonio Bostic and tackle
Terry Williams on offense and
end Jabari Davis on defense.
"Bostic looked good direct-


ing the team, and passed the ball
well." Jackson said. "Williams
blocked well and Davis made
some nice defensive plays."
"It's kind of good'to get
spring practice over with, but
again it would be nice to start
the season this Friday night."
Jackson continued. "But maybe
over the summer we'll get a little
bigger and faster."
West Gadsden will open their
fall schedule in a pre-season
game at Jefferson County on
August 24.


EGHS tops Taylor, loses to Madison


By JOE FEROLITO
Times Sports Editor

East Gadsden defeated
Taylor Co. 12-7 and lost to
Madison Co. 32-8 in a pair of
football jamboree match-ups in
Madison Saturday night.
The format for each meeting
was 3, 10 minute sessions, with
the jv and second teams playing
the first 2 sessions and the varsi-
ty finishing up.
Tramaine Robinson ran 73
yards for a touchdown to give
the Jaguars a 6-0 lead in the first
session against Taylor Co.
Taylor Co. tied it up in the
second session with a 3-yard
touchdown run by Greg Sneed.
East Gadsden got the victory
in the 3rd session when Jamaica


Moore hit Lance Ray with a
touchdown play covering 75
yards.
"We felt we moved the ball
very well and played defense
against Taylor Co.' Jaguar head
coach Scott Anderson comment-
ed. "Our young players got a lot
of playing time and responded
well." Anderson continued.'
Against Madison Co. the
Cowboys got a break early in the
game when they recovered a
Jaguar fumble deep in East
Gadsden territory setting up a 4-
yard touchdown run by Xavier
Brown. The home team scored
again early in the second session
when Travis Arnold scooted 77
yards for a touchdown.
A botched punt attempt gave
Madison Co. another .chance a


few minutes later in session 2,
and the Cowboys struck with a
Chestin Harden to Jordan
Johnson scoring pass of 15
yards.
In session 3, Madison Co.
scored touchdowns on a 2-yard
run by Quarta Barfield and a 13-
yard pass from Blake Sapp to
Kasmon English.
East Gadsden got their
points when Moore passed to
Ricky Ray for.a 36-yard touch-
down and Marterricus
Richardson ran in a 2-point con-
version.
"Playing Madison. Co. was
tough." Said Anderson. "But we
got to see a team with speed,
experience and power."
"Madison Co. has the type pro-
gram we want to have, so getting


a look at them sure didn't hurt."
"Overall I felt there have
been positives this spring."
Anderson continued. "We
looked at a lot of youngsters and
worked hard on our running
game. Blair, Tramaine
Robinson, Dontavious Davis,
and Ronterrius Strong all had
some good runs, both Lane Ray,
and Ricky Ray looked good at
receiver and Ernest Dixon
played some good defense."
"These next 2 months are real
keys for us." Says Anderson.
"We need to work hard in the
weight room and tune up our
passing game."
East Gadsden will open sum-
mer and fall practice on August
6 and will play a pre-season
game at Marianna August 24.


Varsity athletes from tennis, softball, baseball, and cheer-
leading were honored on Thursday, May 10, 2007, at a banquet
and awards ceremony that included parents and students. The
winter and spring team members were all recognized for their
participation, and special awards were given. The 2007 Scholar
Athletes and the Athletes of the Year were named. Above, the
Scholar Athletes are Clay White, Anna Dooner, and Ivie
Thomas. Below, the two Athletes of the Year are John Dooner -
and Crystal Wade.


Munroe bops Maclay 35-6 in spring football


By JOE FEROLITO
Times Sports Editor

On the second scrimmage
play Dontavius Johnson swept
his right end, scampered 65
yards for a touchdown, and
Munroe was off to a 35-6 lacing
of Maclay in spring football
jamboree action at Aucilla last
Friday night.
Before the night was over
Johnson had rushed for 203
yards and Bryant Tolar had


added 140 rushing yards. Both
players scored 2 touchdowns.
It was Maclay's first tackle
football action ever. "It wasn't
easy for a team that has never
played before to line up and play
football." Munroe head coach
Adam Reep said. "Our experi-
ence really helped and we were
able to take advantage of their
mistakes."
Besides his 65-yard scoring
run, Johnson also had a 20-yard
touchdown and a 2-point con-


version run.
Tolar scored on a 2-yard
plunge, a 46-yard jaunt, and a 2-
point conversion. The other
Munroe points were scored by
Cody Watson on a 19-yard dash,
and William Hackney on an
extra point kick.
Maclay got on the board late
when William Webb hit Sam
Stockstill on a pass play that
covered 80 yards for a touch-
down.
"The team was pumped up


after the victory." Reep said.
'We're looking forward to off-
season work, out improvements
and to next season.
Munroe hopes to host a late
summer jamboree that will
include John Paul II, Aucilla,
and Maclay. Their first regular
season game will be against
Branford at Corry Field on
August 31.


QUINCY RECREATION DEPARTMENT EVENTS


Seminole Ramlins byJackWingate


As we walk threw the woods
the powerful smell of the
Magnolia is in the air, so is the
faint oder of the Cataba Tree and
the Honeysuckle Vine along with
the Elderberry. All contribute to
the wonderful smell in the
woods.
For 33 years, as I ran my
fishen camp for boys, it was a
must for the boys to learn to
make their minds rule their bod-


ies, not the bodies rule their
minds. When the body controls
the mind, you can't stop smok-
ing, nor stop taking drugs, nor
can you control the urge to floor
board a car, most of them learned
to control their minds over the
bodies.
The Sunshine Bass Club's
Fish Out here at Wingate's went
something like this: Matt Baty
won with 18.90, Chris Blackmon


had 17.79, and had Big Fish at
4.46 and Buddy Lindsay had 14.
A nice day was had if they had
only weighed in at the weigh-in
station in the "Shade"?.
Mid week we had 2 limits of
Bass made by an Atlanta boat,
one at 12 lbs. and one at 9 lbs. all
on Plastic. Some very good
catches made all week long. Not
so big, but good stout heavy fish
no less.

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


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


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

Celebrating Emancipation Day


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
Fifty years ago S.B. Gunn and
his family designated May 20 as
a day to remember because it
was the day that slaves in this
part of the United States first
learned of their emancipation or
freedom. It was mostly a small
family event with a few
neighbors and relatives. He
would fish and trap for days
leading up May 20 and they
would all sit around, remember
the importance of the day and
enjoy each other.
That was then, but his children
believe that if he had been alive
last Sunday, he would have been
overjoyed to see what his legacy
had brought.
After his death, Gunn's
daughters carried on the
celebrations on the family
property in the Sawdust
Community. Throughout the
years the event grew and the
fellowship and kindness of the
Gunn family grew as well.
People from all over Florida have
made their way to Sawdust to
celebrate Emancipation Day.
Sunday was no
different.Thousands of people
came to celebrate, to visit with
old friends and to eat. "I feel like
this is a class reunion. I
graduated from Greensboro High
School in 1982 and I'm seeing a
lot of my classmates here," said
Amy Roach, who now lives in
Tallahassee.
In addition to Gunn's seven
daughters, many family and
friends come to help. Frank
James, who cooked chicken and
fish all afternoon, never missed a


beat while flipping fish and
chicken to the old school music
played by DJ "Georgia Boy." He
said he is a distant relative of the
Gunn family but has been-
helping cook the massive
amounts of fish and chicken for
the past five years.
The menu Sunday was loaded:
fried chicken, barbecued chicken,
smoked chicken, barbecued ribs,
fried mullet, fried catfish, collard
greens, potato salad, chicken and
rice, baked beans, hot dogs, fresh
lemonade, punch and cake. The
Gunns have never turned anyone
away which was evident by the


crowd that came to the
celebration, some parking as
much as a mile away. The Gunns
have never charged anyone and
they don't want anyone to go
away hungry.
"Some people give donations
because they want to," said eldest
daughter, Eva. This year several
companies came forward to help
sponsor what has become an
event for all in the community.
She said she doesn't know how
the companies found out but their
help was a "blessing."
On May 20, no matter what day
it falls on, the Gunn women are

youngest sister, Wanda, and her
Cousin Lillie B. were busy slicing
one of 10 large sheet cakes made

James' home," she said.
John Canetta of Tallahassee
i f was attending his first
celebration.
He sat with Lynn Poucher of
the West Gadsden Historical
Society to take in the sights and
enjoy the food. "This is as much
a part of the history of western
Gadsden County as anything
else," Poucher said, adding, "we
have to collect all of our history."
Sitting under a tree to fight off
the rays of the sun, Shanita Jones
played with her 16-month-old
daughter, Amiria. She came after
church with her parents to see
up as early as 4 a.m. beginning what the day was all about. She

Aft. LMemorial Day occurs every year in the United Statesl i
on the last Monday in May. This holiday is a federal holiday that
is set aside to pay remembrance to all U.S. soldiers, from anywaorcoct,
which have died in service for our country. In contrast to Veteran's Day, this
day is to honor only fallen soldiers Veteran's Day, which occurs every year on
November 11th honors all veterans. Memorial Day is a federally observed
holiday. All U.S. government offices and public schools are closed on this day,
though few businesses still remain closed. Many vacations are taken during
this holiday due to the three day weekend, and the association it has with the
beginning of the summer season. Many outdoor events are held, including
fireworks displays, picnics, sporting events which include the Indianapolis
500, and memorial services. Traditionally on this holiday the U.S. flag is flown
at half-staff until noon.
After the American Civil War, many cities around the United States began
setting aside days of observance for their veterans that died in battle. These
days were largely celebrated by decorating soldiers' graves, and hence it was
originally called Decoration Day Though Memonal Day's exact origins are
unknown, it is believed that the first true celebration of the holiday occurred in
Waterloo, NY in 1866. In 1868, GeneralJohn A. Logan declared the holiday to
be a time to give tribute to fallen comrades The original Decoration Day was
only meant to be a tribute to civil war veterans, but after the end of WWII the'
holiday was modified to commemorate the lost lives:of all American soldiers in
all wars The holiday was widely celebrated after this lime, and in 1971
Congress declared Memorial Day a national holiday to be celebrated the last
Monday of every May ji OR IiL D!)AY

Program helping relationships


Like the proverbial apple a
day, a pair of computer-based pro-
grams developed by Florida State
University researchers may help
young adults keep relationship
trouble away.
College students in committed
romantic relationships reported
significantly reduced relationship
dysfunction as well as depression
and anxiety symptoms after par-
ticipating in either of the two com-
puter-based interventions, says a
study by the FSU Family Institute.
Those positive findings among
91 young adults -- each a partner
in a relationship that had lasted
four months or more -- are
described in the Journal of Social
and Clinical Psychology (May
2007) in a paper co-authored by
FSU Professor and Family
Institute Director Frank Fincham
and FSU psychology doctoral stu-'
dent Scott R. Braithwaite.
The results suggest that the
two computer-based programs
tested in the FSU study -- a "rela-


tionship-focused preventive inter-
vention" called ePREP and a
"depression- and anxiety-focused
preventive intervention" known as
CBASP -- offer not only effective
but also economical, flexible and
accessible ways to improve an
important aspect of students' lives.
Both computer-based pro-
grams generated marked
improvement in key markers of
relationship functioning, as well
as anxious and depressive symp-
toms, compared to results report-
ed by participants in the control
group, who received 'inert' materi-
als that simply provided informa-
tion and factual data about rela-
tionships, depression and anxiety.

Family Institute -- part of the
department of family and child
sciences in the nationally top 10-
ranked College of Human
Sciences -- visit

FSU to present evenings of dance


The FSU Department of
Dance will present When the
Delta Speaks, the final MFA
concert for the 2006-2007 sea-
son. Produced by Lawrence M.
Jackson and Millicent M.
Johnnie, performances will be
Friday, June 1st and Saturday,
June 2nd in the Nancy Smith
Fichter Dance Theatre, located

When the Delta Speaks, a
contemporary dance concert, is
the unique collaboration of two
young artists who grew up
steeped in the Black southern
culture of the Mississippi Delta
area. Their concert showcases
their individual artistry, their
diversity as choreographers,
and their versatility as perform-
ers, while simultaneously
reflecting how their differences
compliment each other. Their
aim is to represent the possibili-
ties of the human spirit through
dance. Together, their creper-
toire melds contemporary dance
and the rich heritage of African-
American inspired dance and
music to form a powerful con-
cert. Music for the performanc-
es includes guest appearances
by Antonio Cuyler, Dromatala,
Kwame Ross, and Saddi Khali,
as well as original compositions
by the Department's own, Alex
Davis.
Performances will be Friday,
