Murder trial

under way

Clinton Jordan accused
in 2005 Ross murder

by ALICE DUt POINT"
Times Editor
The first-degree murder trial of Clinton
Jermaine Jordan got underway this week in
Gadsden Count Circuit Court. Jordan is
accused of shooting 25-year-old Anthony
"Amp" Ross to death in the early afternoon of
March 29, 2005.
In early testimony Tuesday, Norman-Thomas
told the 12-member jury that he heard two
gunshots while making his way home through
a community shortcut between Thomas
Avenue and Canty Lane. Thomas said his
initial thought was that someone shot a deer.
Minutes later he walked up on Ross who was
slumped over in a go-cart bleeding from the
head.
"He x\j% bleeding so bad, I was scared to
death. 1 ran." he said. Thomas sought
assistance and asked neighbors to call 9-1-1
for help.
Thomas testified that he didn't see anyone in
the area \\ here he found Ross' body.
Wilham Bennefield testified that he and
Brian Ward were sitting in his vehicle outside
of a local nightspot, called "The Ranch
House", when Jordan walked up and asked
him to take him to Sawdust.
"He was sweating and sort of choking and
tears were coming out of his eyes. I thought he
was sick and that when he said he was
overheated," he said.

Schools see major administrative changes


Seven Gadsden schools have new principals for 2007-2008


By BRIAN DEKLE
Times staff writer
Gadsden County schools have
undergone a major administrative
facelift, including shifts and new
appointments in principal and
administrator offices.
Reginald James, Gadsden County
school superintendent, says the staffing
changes were necessary because,
although the district has made testing
gains overall, some schools saw leveling
or decline in performance this year.
"Some people look at progress and say
'good., I look at progress and say, 'We
can do better.' The changes I have made


are designed to make us better," he said.
Seven Gadsden County schools have
new principals this year. Dr. Brenda
Monk, a retired Mississippi educator and
Florida State University learning
specialist, is now at Chattahoochee
Elementary School; Rosalyn Smith,
former James A. Shanks Middle School
principal, is at East Gadsden High
School; Delshaunda Jackson, former
Gadsden Elementary Magnet School
assistant principal, is now principal at
GEMS; Dr. William Harvey, former
EGIS principal, is at George Munroe
Elementary; Lisa Robinson, former
Stewart Street Elementary assistant
principal, is at Gretna Elementary; Hilda
Jackson, former' Gretna: Elementary

some principals to district School Board

were "data driven." For instance, key
moves were made at Chattahoochee
Elementary School, which saw major
declines in Florida Comprehensive
Assessment Test scores. Other schools
with FCAT declines or leveling also saw
big administrative changes.
"I'm a data-based decision maker. I
took data from schools and made my
decisions based on what was in the best
interest of the students," James said.

Clayton Gee's six-day flight from local and federal
law enforcement officials came to an abrupt halt
Tuesday morning in Midway after he crashed his car
head-on into an unmarked Ford Expedition XLT
driven by a U.S. Marshal's Service Violent Fugitive
Task Force member.
The Task Force contacted the
Gadsden County Sheriffs Otfice
around 10:22 a.m. Tuesday to let
local authorities know Gee. 25.

around him. When law enforcement personnel tried to
stop Gee, he crashed his vehicle into the task force

Gadsden County Sheriff Morris Young said officials
moved quickly to catch Gee once he got close to the
Waffle House in order to minimize any potential for a
hostage situation,

"BELEAGUERED BUS" TO
ARRIVE IN GADSDEN COUNTY
--Training Exercise Scheduled--
Tallahassee The North Florida
Regional Domestic Security Task
Force will conduct one of its nationally
recognized "Beleaguered Bus" training
exercises in Gadsden County on June
11. When the Beleaguered Bus rolls
into the community, the county health
department and local first responders


have a unique opportunity to interact in
response to a sudden contagious
disease outbreak. The exercises are
being held in 12 counties within the
North Florida Region.
An unexpected outbreak of a
contagious disease would require the
assistance of many agencies, including
the Gadsden County Sheriffs Office,
the Gadsden Police Department,
Emergency Medical Services, local
hospitals and the Gadsden County


Health Department.
Other actions might include
establishing a quarantine center and
coordinating the isolation and
treatment of patients with county
hospitals.
'This exercise will give our county
valuable insight into the needs and
resources of our community and what
methods will work best in a public
health emergency," said Sylvia Byrd,
ARNP, MPH, Gadsden County Health


Department. "What we learn from this
exercise will help us meet our
community's needs quickly and
efficiently."
There is a safety officer assigned to
the bus to ensure that the exercise is
accident-free. For safety reasons,
because of the number of responding
vehicles involved, Gadsden residents
are requested to avoid the exercise site
if they come upon a "Beleaguered
Bus."

Gretna gains




40 acres in




annex deal


Site rezoned for high-density

residential development


By BRIAN DEKLE
Times staff writer

New residential development
may soon be on the way for
Gretna, as the city recently
annexed 40 acres into its
municipality.
Gretna 'city commissioners
voted unanimously Tuesday to
annex the property, owned by
Lex Thompson, into the city.
The 40-acre site, off county
road 65-A, was also rezoned
from Gadsden County
agricultural to city of Gretna
high density residential.
Thompson has proposed creating
five housing units per acre, or .2-
acre lots on the site. The
Gadsden County landowner will
approach the commission later
for subdivision plat approval.
Architects and Florida A and M
University architecture students
also gave the commission, an
update on plans for the long-
beleaguered Park Street Park.
The architects gave a power
point presentation and showed a
3-D model to the commission of
the proposed park design, which
includes a fitness trail,
playground area, picnic tables,
open-air' pavilion, batting cage
and other items.
The plans also call for
demolishing an existing
bathroom facility, badly damaged
by vandals, and building a new
one, and renovating the press
box, also heavily vandalized,
with sturdier, more vandal-
resistant materials.
In other action Tuesday:
Nadine Smith was reelected
as mayor,' and Anthony Baker
was reelected as mayor pro tem.
Smith thanked the commission
for their unanimous endorsement
and told them to "unite." "Let's
be a board. Let's move this city
forward. Let's not partake in
negativity,"
she said.
The commission voted
unanimously to change a section
in the Gretna charter outlining
terms of office for
commissioners. Commissioners
now have four-year terms instead

of two. Gretna voters gave the
term change a thumbs-up in an
earlier referendum.
- The commission voted
unanimously to allow the Gretna
Police Chief to renew a long-held
agreement with the Florida
Department, of Corrections. The
agreement, which will not be
signed by the chief until City
Attorney Harold Knowles
reviews some possible "minor"
issues, calls for Gretna police to
provide K-9 units as aid in the
event of a prisoner escape.
The commission voted
unanimously to approve *a
consent agreement with the
Florida ,Department of
Environmental Protection
acknowledging problems with
wastewater inflow infiltration in
Gretna. City Manager Antonio
Jefferson told the commission
there have been six instances of
unauthorized wastewater
discharge in recent years,
drawing concerns from DEP.
Jefferson added the problems
have been fixed over the last nine
months, and the city now has a
"solid" wastewater system. The'
city recently received $250,000
from the Florida legislature for
wastewater improvements.
Jefferson told the commission
the city recently received
$250,000 in grant money for
improvements at Gretna Central
Park.
The commission voted
unanimously to give one-time
stipends to etna i volunteerr
firemen .as a' thjilk \ou" for
their h'rd v.ork and rapid
response in fires inside and
outside city limits. The stipends
total $800 and will be distributed
to firemen in amounts correlating
with the individual firemen's
participation and years onboard.
Jefferson told the commission
the funds for the. stipends are
already in the city budget, as the
volunteer fire department rarely
expends its budget allotments.
The commission scheduled a
budget workshop for 6:30 p.m.,
Thursday, June 28 at Gretna City
Hall. Jefferson asked the meeting
be called to discuss spending
priorities for the 2007-2008
fiscal year.

Midway development plan questioned by state


By LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor

Despite Midway Mayor Delores
Madison's assertion that the
controversial item had been
removed from the agenda for
Thursday's City Council meeting,
final plat approval for Holly
Branch subdivision will likely
spur some lively discussion at the
June 7 meeting.
Not only are several residents
opposed to the proposed
subdivision annexed into city
limits 20 acres at a time and the
subject of several comprehensive
plan changes the state
Department of Community
Affairs isn't thrilled with the
development either.
In a letter to Madison dated


May 29, Charles Gauthier,
director of the Division of
Community Planning for DCA,
wrote that the small-scale
comprehensive plan amendments
adopted by the City of Midway
for Holly Branch were
"inconsistent with and 'in
violation of the requirements of
state growth management law."
The land in question, owned by
Lex Thompson, Jamie Thompson,
Thomas Larson and Coastal
Forest Resources, is proposed as
the site for Holly Branch
subdivision and a planned 300 or
so new homes.
The development "greatly
exceeds 20 acres," the letter
states. "Accordingly, future land
use map amendments associated
with this development activity are


not eligible for adoption as 'small
scales' pursuant to Section
163.3187, Florida Statutes, and
must be adopted as 'large scale'
amendments pursuant to Section
163.3184, Florida statutes."
Gauthier wonders too about the
ownership of the parcels.
"As you may be aware, a local
government may not adopt small
scale amendments that involve
the same owner's property within
200 feet of property granted a
change in the prior 12 months.
The four parcels subject to the
small scale amendments abut one
another, and would not be eligible
for. multiple plan amendments if
under common ownership."
Madison said Friday she had not
seen the letter as she'hadn't yet
checked her, mail at City Hall, but


that she still sees the development
as an economic boost for the area.
"Growth is a positive. We have
to get out of the red and get into
the black. I do know we want to
have smart growth instead of
having growth without the
infrastructure," she said.
And Bill Lett, who has lived in
Midway for 35 years, says he and
other area residents have concerns
about the subdivision's impact on
wildlife and resident safety the
site is seven-tenths of a mile from
the Ochlockonee River and has


one entrance and exit.
"It's surrounded on four sides by
wetlands," Lett said. "The
wildlife in the area and the
surrounding area will be
devastated I've seen black bear
out here, fox squirrels, gopher
tortoises three years ago, a
Florida panther was reported as
being seen out here."
Gauthier, who said he and his
associates left several messages
for city staff over a two-week
period but didn't get calls or
emails in reply, says the city


should not permit the
development of Holly Branch.
"As these amendments do not
qualify for treatment under the
'small scale' statute, it is our
conclusion that they were not
legally adopted and are not in
effect as a part of the city's
comprehensive plan," he said.
"Accordingly, the city should not
issue development permits for the
'Holly Branch' subdivision on the
basis of these amendments."
Thursday's meeting begins at 7

FUGITIVE from Page 1


U.S. Marshal Dennis
Williamson commended those
involved in the capture.
"Fugitives like Gee are often
apprehended quickly and safely
by our Violent Fugitive Task
Force because of the investigators
who are dedicated to this effort,
but our success is also due largely
to the support we receive .from
other state and local law
enforcement agencies," he said.
"Without it, the deputies' and the
investigators' jobs would be much
more difficult. This case is a
prime example of the success that
can be achieved from a
cooperative effort of federal, state
and local law enforcement
agencies."
Florida Highway Patrol troopers
directed traffic around the wreck
in the light rain as law
enforcement officers questioned
the slight-built Gee, who stood
handcuffed next to a GCSO
patrol car.


Gee gestured vigorously ,at
times, an "Outlaw" tattoo on one
arm and an "RIP Rico" tattoo on
the other.
The Bureau of Alcohol,
Tobacco and Firearms notified
the task force May 31 it needed
assistance capturing Gee, who
was wanted on a federal warrant.
for a firearm offense.
A convicted felon, Gee served
time in Wakulla Correctional
Institute from September, 2002 to
February, 2005 on charges of
cocaine possession; the sale,
manufacture and/or delivery of
cocaine; fraudulent use of an ID
and grand theft of a motor
vehicle. In 2000, he was
sentenced to community
supervision with the Florida
Department of Corrections on a
cocaine possession charge.
The Tallahassee Police
Department notified the task
force June 1 that it had issued
warrants against Gee on charges


of aggravated battery and fleeing
and eluding.
From May 31 until June 5,
federal marshals and task force
members tracked Gee through
Leon and Gadsden counties; Gee,
however, managed to flee before
officials could arrest him.
Tuesday, his luck ran out. Law
enforcement officers saw him
driving his maroon car toward
Midway, where he is believed to
have lived on .Williams Street,
and deputy marshals, task force
members, ATF officials, TPD
patrol and K9 units and GCSO
deputies worked together to catch
him.
Federal marshals transported
him to the U.S.. Courthouse in
Tallahassee, where he appeared
before a federal magistrate for an
initial appearance Tuesday. He
was remanded into the custody of
the U.S. Marshals Service by
U.S. Magistrate Judge William
Sherrill.

the FCAT principals could
really be effective as good
managers. But in today's
accountability environment,
principals need to be
instructional leaders and
understand data-driven
leadership."
James added the changes were
not made hastily, and his two
years as superintendent have
allowed him to discern strengths'
and weaknesses among
administrators.
"I believe you have to work
with people a couple of years
(before making major changes). I
don't subscribe to coming in and
changing everything right away,"
he said.
James offered Ida Walker as an
example. GEMS under Walker's
leadership as principal has seen
significant FCAT gains and has
seen more scores at or above
state average than any other
school in the district in 2006-
2007.
James said he wanted to utilize
Walker's talent as a leader in a
manner that will impact all
Gadsden County schools, so he
promoted her to district
coordinator of assessment and
student-related services.
At the start of James' tenure as
superintendent, Gadsden County
had five failing schools. Since
that time the district has made
great strides in the eyes of the


Florida Department of Education,
and last year Gadsden County
had no failing schools.
James said the staffing changes
this year are part of his overall
plan and vision to improve


Gadsden schools. He said there is
"no question" that good
administrative leadership at
schools make a positive
difference in school performance.

Contemplation



Whatever happened to that

bypass?


Quincy needs the bypass.
For years the bypass has been batted
around. I remember attending the first
meetings when the bypass was under
serious consideration. The original plan
was to construct a road from State Road 12
near the airport to Strong Road, which
would connect to U.S. Highway 90 east.
The purpose of the bypass was two fold:
first, it would cutoff valuable minutes from
the northeast part of the county to the
hospital.
Secondly, it would alleviate some of'the
semi tractor trailer traffic downtown. /
Everyone thought it was a good idea,
including state transportation officials. The
idea was met with enthusiasm $9 million
dollars was set aside. Sen. Pat Thomas
kept an eye on the project and things seem
to be headed in the right direction.
Property owners were willing to sell the
land required for bypass construction,
public hearings were held, and the plans
hit the drawing board.
Somewhere along the line, the project
was pushed back, and back, and back.
Right now it is totally out of the
Department of Transportation's plan of
work for the next fiver years. The plan is a
blueprint for what will happen in our area
for transportation.
That's because of a little group, made up
of mostly Leon County people, have been
given the authority to make
recommendations for which projects will
be funded in Leon, Gadsden, and Wakulla
Counties.
The Capital Regional Transportation
Planning Agency, for all practical


purposes, determines what the
transportation needs for the region are now
and in the future is in charge.
With the agency is made up mainly of
people representing Leon County
government, Tallahassee city government
and the Leon County School Board it's not
difficult to figure out where we stand.
Given the way that people are, they have
no reason whatsoever tp care about
Gadsden County or about being fair to us.
I agree with County Commissioner Ed
Dixon that the agency has proven by past
actions that they don't intend to
recommend any projects outside of Leon
County.
The argument that most of the people in
the region live in Tallahasseeis a smoke
screen. We all Leon County has the largest
population, but does that mean others don't
have transportation needs too? As far as
I'm concerned, they are saying that
whatever transportation problems that
Gadsden County have or may experience
are not worth any attention from CRPTA.
So, we are basically forced to sit at the'
table hoping that CRTPA is eventually
feel sorry for us and toss us a crumb or if
we sit there long enough a crumb might
fall to the floor and we can fight Wakulla
County for it, to the amusement of the
Leon County members.
Either way, it doesn't look good for us on
anything transportation related unless
things change and an attempt is made to be
fair to Gadsden and Wakulla counties.
One thing they ought to keep in mind, the
problems they are creating for us now will
show up on their door step in the future.


I called Mo-m likeTdroevery Sunday
morning. I could tell by the pause
something was wrong. When the pause
escalated I braced myself. "Son, Aunt Bea
died this morning."
I didn't brace hard enough.
My first thought was for Mother. "Mom,
are you o. k.?".....which, when you think
about it, was about the dumbest thing I
could have said. I blame that on my own
shock. I knew Aunt Beatrice.had some
health problems, but I had no idea it was so.
serious.
"Son, she was sick. She is much better off
now." If anyone understands the loving
arms of almighty God, it is Mother. She
was expounding on the peace and
perfection reigning on the other side but
my mind had flashed back to those early
visits to Aunt Bea's. She cooked like no
one else I have ever known, both in quality
and quantity! You didn't have to worry
about somebody beating you to a chicken
wing or an extra helping of candied yams.
There was always plenty. And she'd let the
children eat with the grown-ups!
And let me tell you, there will never be
another person on earth that will ever come
close to "putting up" the jams, jellies, peas,
pears, okra, corn relish, preserves, pickled
peaches, etc. that Aunt Bea crammed inside
those Ball jars! I never left her house
without a truck load of goodies. And, if
anyone else did, it was their own fault!
I thought of.Uncle Womack. What would
he do? They'd been married for almost
sixty-four years. From the very first visits
we made "down the Steadman Ridge" back
in the early 50's, I realized they were the
perfect couple. Aunt Bea could, and would,
do a mite of talking. Uncle Womack was a
professional listener. And they'd both work
down those rows side by side....I mean
back breaking dawn to dust gathering-the
kind of work folks won't do today-Aunt
Bea would be yakking up a storm, Uncle
Womack would nod silently as he dumped
another hamper into the wagon. It was a
match made in Heaven.
I thought of Charles, Barbara and Teresa.
We had logged some miles together back
and forth along the ridge, down the Big
Oak road, across Sugar Creek, up to Minor
Hill, out to Leoma, over to Mt. Zion....
What could I possibly say that would help


them now?
Charles was the quiet one. Not as quiet as
his dad, mind you, but he wasn't about to
over run you with words. Barbara did that.
She could talk....and get mad! We had so
much fun growing up turning her fire
engine red! It sure helped with the
boredom in our little world. Teresa was
Granny made over. And that is a high
compliment. I said a prayer for each of
them as Mom reminded me one more time
that "Beatrice is much better off this
morning".
Cathy came down the hall, saw the tears
running down my face, and waited
patiently untilI could get out, "Aunt Bea".
We sat in silence. My mind was trying to
comprehend a world without her. Cathy
grieved with me. She had eaten the
blackberry jam, she knew about the hidden
pickled peaches, she had set her feet under
Aunt Bea's table, she had heard, at least ten
times, every story I could think of about
growing up between Lawrenceburg and
the state line.....
On the ride up for the funeral I spent
nearly five hundred miles pondering on this
life and death thing. I embraced the joy and
happiness brought into my life in recent
months by the addition of two new
grandchildren. Yet, I mourned the loss of
Aunt Beatrice and thought "how in the
world would we go on without her". I'm
not sure I understand the cycle. But I know
it exits.
I hugged Mom and asked again how she
was doing. We are creatures of habit!
Charles shook my hand and said his mom
had been really sick, "She is better off
now." Barbara hugged my neck and said,,
"Can you just imagine the breakfast she
cooked for everyone in Heaven this
morning." Teresa cried....and then
laughed as we recounted some silly story
of by gone days. Family!
I stood before my Aunt Bea. And I
thought of the miles and miles of labor she
and Uncle Womack had put in. I thought of
the laughter around her table. I thought of
her selling those jars of goodies at the fall
festival at Mt. Zion. I remembered a life
time of kind words for, to and about me.
She was truly one of the "salt of the earth"

Our anonymous, nationally

acclaimed author


I recently called a local author who
had been interviewed by'CNN the day
before about the book she'd written,
hoping to set up an interview with her.
She declined initially, saying the
topic of her book was controversial
and she's not sure "our area is exactly
ready for it. Thankfully, I think you're
just about the only person in our fair
city who actually caught the show; no
one knows about it."
Actually, I saw the show on the CNN
website after someone a Gadsden
County native told me about it.
She went on to say she'd been fired
from her job over her response to her
reaction to a serious illness; that her
children do not have knowledge of the
circumstances and events described in
the book and she "would not like for
them to find out ... via a jeering Wal-
Mart patron."
I'm not sure who looks worse in this
mirror: The author, the community, or
the community as she perceives it -
and people can be ugly anywhere,
that's a fact.
There is no safeguard against
bumping into the occasional creep;
Jerkdom has many residents. When
you put your name on a story or a
book, it's an invitation for the readers
to share their opinions of your work,

good, bad or indifferent..
SMy question, though, is how an
author who has been featured in
French Riviera Spa health magazine,
interviewed on a national radio show,
written up in the New York Daily
News, no less, and has a book listed
on Amazon.com expects her children -
or the rest of Gadsden County to
remain in the dark.
Hunh?
The doctor that served as medical
editor for the book wrote/in the
forward that the disease the author
describes "is a story of suffering,
hopelessness and anguish, a story that
brings us to the edge of human
endurance and to the decision that no
new mother-to-be expects to face.
Unfortunately, it is not her story alone
but the story of countless women
worldwide ... as a disease, it is-under-
studied, poorly understood and fraught
with the myths of years of
misinformation and misunderstanding
from the medical profession."
It sounds like women, doctors and
medical students who might be dealing
with this disease and not know it could
benefit from the book and the
publicity surrounding it.
Unless, of course, they live in
Gadsden County.

Editor:

The city of Midway is under fire for their
dubious practices concerning "small scale
annexation" and "comprehensive plan change."
They have violated several Florida Statutes in
their dealings with the "Holly Branch" project.
The general council office of the DCF has been
unable to reach Midway officials, who aren't
returning phone calls. Since the Midway City
Council will hear Lex Thompson's final plat
approval on June 7, this is a meeting that should
be attended by all interested parties, including
the DCF. This is a bad project!

Bill Lett

Editor:

It's unfortunate the Gadsden County times was
not interested enough to send someone to cover
the Wetumpka-Lake Talquin area neighborhood
meeting.
Close to 200 residents showed up for this
meeting, with accommodation for about 100.
This was no ones fault, no one could have
anticipated this kind of turnout, but this ought
to let Growth Management and the County
commissioners know that the citizens in the area
are concerned and upset.
This area is an environmental sensitive area and
should be classified as such. Growth
Management and the County commissioners
continue to change the density (homes allowed
per acre) in the County, and continue to allow
mobile home parks and mobile homes whenever
anyone can slip one in. In addition they approved
360 more homes offMcCall Bridge Road, but
the Department of Consumer Affairs stepped in
and said no. The D.C.A. becomes involved when
20 acres or more are the subject for density or
environmental issues. This is why the County
Commissioners approved 19 1/2 acres for the
sand pit on State Road 267,-By-circumventing-
the D.C.A., they can now open the additional
400 acres by claiming to be adjacent to an
existing sand pit.
What you are now seeing is the first steps in the
inevitable demise of Lake Talquin, not to
mention additional deaths on State Road 267, by
doubling or tripling the dump trucks.
Again, I'm sorry the Gadsden County Times
couldn't make the meeting, but maybe you
didn't want to report on the "Gross
Mismanagement" instead of Growth
Management.

Insurance


crisis lies


ahead

By Randall G. Holcombe

Floridians need to take one
extra precaution when the
hurricane season begins on June
1. Not only should they review
their emergency plans and stock
up on supplies, but they should
also say a little prayer that
Florida is spared Mother Nature's
wrath this year. That's because
Florida's citizens will be on the
hook for more of the losses if the
2007 storm season resembles
those of 2004. and 2005.
Blame the Legislature's January
special session. In their haste to
do something to calm angry
constituents, lawmakers with the
laudable goal of making property
insurance more affordable and
available passed some flawed
legislation.
That legislation had two key
elements. It expanded the state-
run catastrophe fund that offers
reinsurance to the insurance
industry, and it lowered the rates
of Citizens Insurance, the state-
run property insurer, to make
them competitive with private
insurers.
Both changes shift the liability
for storm damage from insurance
companies to Florida's citizens.
If we had another Hurricane
Andrew or another season like
those of 2004 and 2005, we
would be liable for more of those
losses.
How much? In theory, the
catastrophe fund and Citizens----
might have enough reserves to
avoid needing a bailout. In
practice, however, the reserves
aren't yet adequate, so insurance
customers are already paying
surcharges on their policies and
not just on their property
insurance .e, ther.. .... ,
Look closel) \\hen you renew
your car insurance. You'll find a
surcharge intended to build up
the state's catastrophe fund. It's
now one percent. In the event of
large losses, that surcharge could
reach 20 percent on homeowners
and auto policies.
Citizens is indeed an
appropriate name for the state's
property insurer, because
ultimately it is Florida's citizens
who are liable for the losses of
Citizens' policyholders.
These changes work against the
very reason that Floridians want
insurance to begin with. The idea
of insurance is that those who are
insured pay a premium up-front,
and then in the event of a loss,
the insurance company bears the
loss.
But these changes mean that for
major losses which is what we
want to insure against we bear
more of the risk ourselves. These
changes shift the risk away from
the insurance companies and
place it back on Florida's citizens.
Was there a better alternative,
given the fast-rising rates and
shrinking availability after the
very active 2004 and 2005
hurricane seasons? Yes.
Paradoxically, relaxing
regulations to allow market
pricing of insurance would attract
more insurers to Florida.
The added competition would
tend to hold rates down, just as
competition affects pricing in
other industries. That is true even
though there are differences in
the insurance market and the
market for most other products.
With goods such as cars or
groceries, producers know their
costs before setting prices.
Insurers, in contrast, must set
prices ahead of time based on
projections of the claims they
might need to pay out. Insurers
profit if property damage is low,
as in 2006. However, if storm
damage is costly, as in 2004 and
2005, they suffer losses.
Insurance is a risky business by
definition because, in exchange
for a fixed payment made now, ---
the insurers bear future risks.
Because the state can deny
companies a rate hike, insurers'
ability to adjust their rates is
limited. State-mandated rates that
are too low can be very costly
because of this regulatory
structure. That's why,


paradoxically, a relaxation of rate
regulation can lead to lower rates.
There's another step the state
could take to make the industry
more price competitive under the

Car crash leads to possession charges


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
A car crash led to the arrest
of 24-year-old Horace Jenkins
of Gretna on charges of posses-
sion of marijuana, possession of
marijuana with intent to distrib-
ute, and possession of parapher-
nalia.
According to a report


released by the Florida
Highway Patrol, Jenkins was a
passenger in a car driven by
Donterrius Jamar Figgers, 24,
of Tallahassee around 7 p.m.
Saturday when the accident
occurred at the intersection of
Shade Farm Road and Glory
Roads.
Jenkins returned to the
scene of the crash after FHP had


cleared the area. However,
Trooper B.D. Lawrence also
decided to return to the scene
around the same time. He
watched Jenkins in the woods
walking in a "zig-zag" fashion
as if he was looking for some-
thing.
Then, he wrote, he saw
Jenkins bend down and drop
something and tried to hide


behind tree when he saw the
trooper.
Troopers found what
they believed Jenkins was look-
ing for and found. "A search of
the wooded area by Trooper
M.J. King found a red and black
canvas bag." Inside the bag,
troopers found approximately
374 grams of marijuana and an
assortment of clear sandwich

Local artist helps raise funds for Redeemed, Inc.


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

The look on Dean Mitchell's
face when he got his first look at
the planned renovated "Wilson
House" was sheer amazement.
He grew up in the neighborhood
where the house was once a
showplace family home, but had
declined into a boarding house
and then just plain boarded up.
Mitchell's watercolor of the
"Wilson House" has earned him
accolades in the world of fine
art. It was painted when it was in
disrepair and the facade had the
look of a haunted house.
That's why, when he .heard
that the house was going to be
renovated and turned into a tran-
sition house for women leaving
prison, Michell volunteered to
donate prints of his famous
watercolor. He also donated a
.weekend to meet and greet peo-
ple, talk about the Wilson
House, and personally sign
prints.
"I see the good in what this
house will become. I see the rip-
ple effect of how the proceeds
from the sale of the prints will
change the lives of women and
children," Mitchell said.
The new "Wilson House"
(the name will not be changed)
said Annie Berry, executive
director of Redeemed, Inc. will
open its doors, hopefully, next
year. "Most of the work has
been on the exterior. Once they
start inside, things should go
pretty quickly," Berry said.
Mitchell signed prints nearly
three hours Saturday afternoon

Artist Dean Mitchell, right, signs prints for Dr. Jim Rodgers and Artur Fixel


at the Gadsden Arts Center.
Mitchell said he enjoyed the
time talking with people about
his work and the world of art in
general.
Dr. Jim Rodgers, a New
Orleans native, chatted easily


with Mitchell about his work
currently shown in a New
Orleans gallery.
Kathy Garner, family court
judge, drove over from
Tallahassee to make sure her
print was signed. The two grew


up in the same neighborhood
and are friends. Tallahassee res-
ident Walter Kelly said he had
never met Mitchell but has been
a fan of his work for many
years.
"I had looked, forward to


meeting him and this was my
opportunity. I have several of his
prints in my office already," he
said.
While Mitchell was happy
that his work has brought joy to
people, he was even happier


about that the money will be
used to change the lives of peo-
ple.
"I want people to know that
they can rise above their circum-
stances. The proceeds from the
prints will give people a second
or third chance to make their life
outcomes different," Mitchell
said.
He was especially touched
Friday afternoon during a public
reception at Quincy's City Hall,
when women told their own sto-
ries about how Redeemed, Inc.
had changed their lives.
"Wow, my heart was so full
when I listened to what those
women had to say. They may
have stumbled, but they are so
strong. I don't know if even I
could have overcome some of
the barriers they face," he said.
Mitchell said that he often
meets people who are in awe of
his own life story. The art world
is different, he said, because
most patrons are very wealthy
and have never worried about
finances.
"When they find out that I
was raised in this little town by a
grandmother with only a fourth
grade education, they can't
believe it," he said adding, "my
grandmother worked hard some-
times only earning 15 or 20 dol-
lars a week to take care of me."
But the honesty and work
ethic that she instilled in him as
a child is what, Mitchell said,
has made him a successful artist.
Berry still: has signed prints
for sale. To purchase one, call
her at 875-2269.

The Quincy Garden Club Poppy Circle recently : -- ----
hosted "garden therapy" at the Magnolia House

Poppy Circle chairwoman, the residents and circle I. .
members learned how to make beautiful tissue
paper flowers. The residents enjoyed the opportuni- -
ty to arrange'any type of flowers and discuss their "
own gardening experiences. Other. ldcal civic
groups, schools and churches volunteer their time at
Magnolia House for various other programs. If you .
aie interested in hosting a program, please call the :p '

The Gadsden County Times June 7,2007 7


Staff changes reflect administrators' implementation of model


By BRIAN DEKLE
Times staff writer

"No excuses" for failing
schools, "nothing is taught until
something is learned," and
"today be the teacher your own
child deserves" have become
favorite mantras of Gadsden
County school Superintendent
Reginald James.
James recently made big staff
changes in school administrative
offices, and he said his decisions
are based on achievement data
from schools and the ability of
school leadership to live up to
his "powerful" slogans.
When James entered office
two years ago, he was "looking
up from the bottom" at five fail-
ing schools and test scores far
below state averages.
Some argued his showy moti-
vational slogan-use only over-
simplified how to dig out of the
district's academic hole, but
since that time the district has
made great strides, with no fail-
ing schools last year and test
gains across the board.
But James credits school
improvement to a simple model,
and his staff changes reflect
school leaders' ability to imple-
ment that model, called the


"Continuous Improvement
Model" (CIM).
James considers Ida Walker a
champion of the CIM, and he
recently moved her from the
principal office at Gadsden
County Elementary Magnet
School to the district central
office as coordinator of assess-
ment and student-related servic-
es.
Under Walker's leadership,
GEMS saw test scores at or
above state average across the
board and big academic gains,
and James said he plans to use
Walker's CIM-implementation
talent to train other principals on
how to do the same at their
schools.
So what is the CIM, and how
is it successfully implemented in
Gadsden schools?
On a desk in front of Ida
Walker sits a poster that hangs
on the walls of all Gadsden
County schools. At the top it
reads, "The CIM Model
Implementation = Academic
Success!!!," followed by eight
steps that Walker believes,
through personal experience, are
"guaranteed" to move Gadsden
County Schools forward in aca-
demics.


The first step is to "disaggre-
gate test data." At GEMS,
Walker developed her own tests
designed to catch strengths and
weaknesses of students in a vari-
ety of subject areas.
After such is discovered, the
next steps are to "develop an
instruction timeline (or focus
calendar)" and "deliver the
instructional focus" to students.
This sets a chronological plan
for student learning.
Next, teachers "administer
frequent assessments" to track
the progress of student learning.
At GEMS, teachers kept data
logs of progress and submitted
them weekly to Walker, allow-
ing her to keep a close eye on
student progress and CIM
implementation.
Lastly, teachers and adminis-
trators "use tutorials to re-teach"
struggling students, "provide
enrichment opportunities,"
''reinforce learning through
maintenance" and continuously
"monitor progress."
Walker believes her proper,
effective implementation of
these steps ."had absolutely
everything to do" with the
school's huge success this year.
"I credit it all to the model. I


just followed it and implement-
ed it," she said.
As the new district coordina-
tor of assessment and student-
related services, Walker said she
will now take her CIM strategies
to all schools. Principals must
report their data to Walker
monthly, and she said she will
keep an "open-dialogue" with
all school administrators,
including training and on-site
school visits.
"The first thing I want to do
is help (school administrators)
understand the model, that it's
continuous. I'll stay in close
contact with principals and see
the plan in action," she said.
"What I want to do is change
the entire concept or philosophy
about CIM. It shouldn't be just
documents, documents, like
logs; you really have to interact,
and I think that piece was miss-


ing. You can't just test students,
and that's it; you've got to ana-
lyze what (test scores) mean and
act on it. I think that's the differ-
ence; I want to be proactive
instead of reactive.".


Walker said she also plans to
create local school assessments
aside from state-mandated tests
to continuously monitor CIM
implementation progress.

CHIPOLA A WINNER
Chipola College is some kind of
\winner this year. Two weeks ago
the girl's softball team took the
National Jucco title in Plant City.
It was ditto for the boys in
Grand Junction, Colorado this
week.
Local lad Andrew was a mem-
ber of the team that won the first
ever national baseball title for the
Indians and the first JLJCCO title
for a Florida team since 1988.

NICE VISIT FROM JERRY
Friend, and former boss man


Jerrm Wynn. stopped by Tuesday
and we had a nice visit while
attending the \weekly Rotary Club
meeting.
Jerry, a former head of the
County Health Department. always
helps lift me up.
He and I always talk about old
times. and we have plenty of old
times to talk about.
It was good to see that old
buddy.

LASAGNA OPEN
Having won or tied the Lasagna
Open Golf Tournament held at the


Wildwood Country Club in Medart
the past two years our group
slumped pretty bad this time
around.
Last Wednesday the group of
Paul O'Halloran, Buddy Tomani,
Chris Tomani, and myself could
manage only a 2-under par day.
That thanks mostly to some
great chips from Chris. It was the
first time I played since last years
Lasagna Open.
Playing often or yearly doesn't
matter though. As usual the only
help I manage to give is with a few
putts.


Chipola wins it all, Indians 2007 national baseball champions


Ryan Chaffee threw a five-
hitter leading the Chipola
Indians to a 7-3 win over New
Mexico-Junior College Saturday
night in the National champi-
onship game of the Jucco World
Series played in Grand Junction,


Colorado.
Chaffee, a right-handed
freshman from Niceville, struck
out eight, and had only one
walk. He had a no-hitter going
through three innings.
Hitting wise, the Indians


amassed 19 hits with Tom
Hatcher, Logan Pierce and Paul
Gatchell getting three each.
Brandon Street, Trey Manz,
Daniel Renfroe, and Jesus
Barroso had two hits each. One
of the Manz hits was a home


run.
Chipola had defeated
Spartanburg, S.C. 27-12 earlier
Saturday to get a shot at New
Mexico. Barroso had two
homers, and Manz and Renfroe
one each in the slug fest.


Spartanburg had dropped
Chipola into the loser's bracket
with a 10-6 win Friday night.
This was Chipola's first base-
ball JUCCO national champi-
onship. It was the first for a
Florida team since Hillsborough


'Cha Cha' dancing into playoffs with Titans


by JOE FEROLITO
Times Sports Editor

"When someone says you
can't do something, let it motivate
you, not stop you."
That comes from Charles 'Cha
Cha' Berry, Quincy's contribution
to the Tallahassee Titans Arena
Football team.
Berry says, "Just give them a
smile and prove you can do."
That's just what the former
Shanks standout has done.
An undersized player in high
school-he was told by some that
he was too small. All he did was
start at either cornerback or safety
for the 97' and 98' Tiger teams and
helped them to the play-offs both
years. For the 98' season the then
5-9, 168 pounder was named All-
County as he was in on 58 tackles
and had 3 interceptions and 27
break-ups.
A good high school player, but.


Charles "Cha Cha" Berry, upper left, has helped lead the
Tallahasseee Titans into the arena football playoffs.


too small for college. No way, the
hard hitting Berry got a scholar-
ship to Butler County
Community College in Kansas.
He played on the Butler team that
won the National Junior College
crown in 99' and made the play-
offs in 2000. In the 2000 year he


was Al-Jayhawk Conference.
After getting his A.A. Degree
from Butler, Berry signed with
Division 11 Delta State in
Cleveland, Mississippi.
At Delta State he was an
Honorable Mention All-
Conference pick as a junior and


an All-Gulf Coast Conference
pick in his senior year when he
intercepted 6 passes and returned
2 for touchdowns.
"People pretty much said my
football was over after college."
Berry said.
"But I worked and stayed in
shape and then the Titans came to
the area."
Berry impressed his Titan
coaches early and he started the
first game for the Tallahassee
team.
Early in the contest he broke a
finger and had to sit out over half
the season. He returned the mid-
dle of April and has started at a
defensive back slot every since
helping the Titans to some impor-
tant wins to get them in the play-
offs.
In 5 games Berry has 13 solo
tackles, 2 assists, 1 break-up and
has returned kicks for 46 yards.
The play-offs start this


Saturday in Tupulo, Mississippi
when the Titans take on
Mississippi.
In two previous meetings this
year the Titans lost to Mississippi
58-51, and 75-70.
Berry missed both of those
games. "I think we'll be better pre-
pared defensively against .them,
this time." Berry says. "I'm look-
ing forward to getting a chance to
play them."As for the season
Berry says. "I've enjoyed playing
this year, in spite of my injury,
and I'm looking forward to next
season when I think the team will
be on more solid ground finan-
cially."
"I appreciate all the fans that
came out to see us this year," he
continued.
Some think the Titans won't be
around next year. Berry would
probably give a smile at that
thought, thinking they may just be
wrong.


won it in 1988.
It was the second national
title for Chipola in the past two
weeks. Two weeks ago the girl's
softball team were crowned
national champions in Plant
City.

love her....because she first loved
me!
The preacher said her "trials
were over" and that "Beatrice
Rosson was in a far betterplace
today."
They buried her at the little
country cemetery at Mt. Zion. On
the front row! I thought it was
most appropriate! She wasn't
stuck way back between the
Harrison's and the Shelton's or
out past the gazebo or near 'bout
to where the hill starts up in the
back. They had her almost in the
exact spot where she had set up
her booth for the fall festival for
as many years as I could count! I
was happy for her.
And I was eyeing a plot up
there along side of her. Nothing
would honor me more if someday
they'd let me down right up there
with her. 'Course, I ain't in no all
fire hurry. But as resting places
go for this old earthly temple,
they had placed Aunt Bea as
close to Heaven as they possibly
could!
I stood in that God blessed
place and remembered the words
that I had heard from most
everybody for three days now.
Aunt Beatrice was sick. She is
better off today. She feels no
more pain. No more suffering.
I agree. She is much better off.
But I am not....

verse of the weele:
The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.
Psalms 23:1

My Shepherd
What exactly is a shepherd you might
ask? Well Webster's defines the verb form
of a shepherd as one who guides or
guards in the manner of a shepherd. A
shepherd's job is guide and guard the
sheep to protect them from harm. One of
the ways a shepherd does this, is to
make all his sheep pass under the staff
each night. While each sheep is passing
under the staff, he looks for parasites and/
or damage (cuts, bruises, broken bones,
etc.) to the sheep. Because of the close
guard he keeps, the sheep develop a
trusting relationship with their shepherd,
answering to only his call. In our day to
day lives, we pass under the Lord's staff
of mercy and grace, and because we
know His voice and trust Him, we don't
have to be afraid or want for anything.

Nothing characterizes modem life better than computers. For better or worse, computers have gained access to every aspect
of our society. Today computers do much more than simply compute; supermarket scanners calculate our grocery bill while
they keep up the store inventory; computers help cars get better fuel economy, computerized telephone switching centers
keep lines of communication untangled; and automatic teller machines let us conduct banking transactions from anywhere in
the world. Computers are even used to save lives. The pacemaker, a device that is surgically implanted in the human heart,
and helps to regulate how your heart beats, is a miniature computer Almost every person needs a computer in the United
States, as they touch almost every aspect of our lives.
There is no real answer on who created the tirst computer, although many things in the past have been considered
computers. In 1937, the Atanasoff-Berry Computer was created at Iowa State College by a professor named John Vincent
Atanasoff and a graduate student named Clifford Berry. This computer is considered to be the first true modem computer The 1. P R U M 0 C E T
computer's creators pioneered the use of binary arithmetic in computers Binary arithmetic is a type of math system that uses
a 2 number system, for computer programs the two numbers used are 0 and 1. Codes are typed in binary and act as a base
code, telling the computer what to do. Binary is a very complex math system which takes years to master. Although binary is 2. S N 0T A F l F
essential in making programs work, it is only one piece in the puzzle that makes computers work. Some of the major
components that make up the actual hardware of a computer are: the processor, the motherboard, and the RAM. Together, 3. R Y B I N
all these pieces create an information super machine.
Technology has become an important part of our daily lives Without even realizing it, you probably rely on many computers
in your daily routine. Have you ever wondered, where all of this could be leading in the future? Houses, called "Smart Homes," 4. A R 0 V K D E B
are already being built wth computers integrated in them, telling you when your refrigerator is low on milk, or how many
people are in the house. Cars are already being developed that will drive themselves, preventing traffic accidents. No one can

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

Myself on that stage during
class. You forget everything
you're dealing with from the moment you step in
front of that class, and you just teach."


A full-time professor at TCC since 1990,
Zimmerman has had many years to get used to
being on that "stage". He was also an adjunct
professor for two years prior to his full-time.
appointment, and taught at Barry University
(Barry College at the time), the University of
Chicago, and served as a teacher's assistant
while doing graduate work at Florida State
University and the University of Wisconsin.


Zimmerman completed two master's degrees
from Wisconsin and Florida international and.'
has all but finished his doctoral dissertation
at FSU. Despite all of his experiences at these
universities, he feels most comfortable at TCC.


"I believe community colleges focus more on the
needs of the students," said Zimmerman. "TCC is a
great collegial place to work. You can do academic
work (papers), but that's not the primary focus here.


'What is interesting is that your influence
and impact on the students cannot always be
perceived immediately," Zimmerman continued.
"All you can do is plant seeds, but it is
gratifying when your influence sprouts up later
- even if that means being crazy, which I think
you have to be," the fun-loving faculty member
said as he pointed to the numerous toys and
gadgets that adorn his office.

HES says goodbye to principal


TCC offering new


medical program


Havana Elementary's outstanding Principal, Mrs. Elizabeth E. Turner will be the Director of Elementary Education for the
Gadsden County School District effective June 1, 2007. She came to HES from St. John Elementary nine years ago. Especially
noteworthy is that Mrs. Turner is the first woman principal in Havana Elementary's history. Congratulations to Mrs. Turner
from the faculty and staff. We will truly miss you!


Tallahassee Community
College's division of Health
Care Professions has added a
new certificate program to its
slate of offerings. The
Diagnostic Medical Sonography
program will begin this Fall,
giving current Certified
Radiologic Technologists the
opportunity to enhance their
professional skills.
This is a post-degree, four-
semester certificate program,
designed to address a recog-
nized need in the community,
according to Lois Ewen, Dean
of the Health Care Professions
division. "This is the first pro-
gram of its kind in our immedi-
ate area that we know of. It
came about as a result of the
commitment of the surrounding
healthcare community to pro-
vide resources such as equip-
ment and clinical education
sites. The program has a respon-
sibility to provide competent
sonographers for this communi-
ty."''
The Diagnostic Medical
Sonography program is
designed, to equip the student


with the knowledge needed to
successfully complete the
American Registry of
Diagnostic Medical
Sonographers examination.
ARDMS certification is a cru-
cial step in the career of a sono-
grapher, creating employment
opportunities as well as oppor-
tunities to contribute to the field
of sonography.
Classes will be scheduled at
night and clinical, which will
take place two days per week,
will be scheduled mainly during
the day. "We are trying to be as
flexible as possible since the
students likely already work
during the day," said Ewen. "We
have two machines here for
them to get experience on, but
they will benefit most from the
hands-on clinical experience."
Applications for this Fall's
inaugural class can be found
online at www.tcc.fl.edu under
the Health Care Professions
link, and are due by July 15.
Approximately 10 students will
.be accepted for this first class.
For more information, call (850)

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 Pour supporting us. Come
by or call.
