P&Z board

rejects request

from Lake

Talquin

landowners


County declines

to vacate public

right-of-way

Brian Dekle
Times staff writer
The Gadsden County Planning and Zoning
Board rejected a plea from Lake Talquin
landowners, who asked the county to vacate a
portion of public-right-of-way near their
property.
The Idlewild Homeowners Association, Inc.,
asked the county to abandon and vacate an
approximate 250 feet of McCall Bridge Road,
a public right-of-way located at the end of
McCall Bridge Road near and adjacent to Lake
Talquin.
County staff recommended the small
"rectangle of land" leading to Lake Talquin
not be vacated, and the Commission voted
unanimously to do so.
Idlewild filed the request due to complaints
of trespassing on private property by boaters.
For years boaters have used the public land
strip to access Lake Talquin, but because of a
boat shed blocking access at the end of the
strip, they turn off the public right-of-way onto
private property where a private boat ramp
exists.
County staff said, according to the
-comprehensive growth plan, public right-of-

City to borrow $1 million for bills


Money to come from bank, reserve fund


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
During a special meeting
Monday night, Quincy City
Commissioners voted to
borrow $1 million dollars to
catch up on past due bills. The
money will come from two
sources: $500,000 from the
Capital City Bank and another


$500,000 from the city's
reserve fund.
The money will be used to
satisfy a $386,000 past due
payment to Waste
Management, $286,000 to
OMI, and bring other bills
current, including Progress
Energy which the city is
paying but 15 days after the
due date. Because of the late


payments, the city has been
paying late fees monthly.
Other bills that will be caught
up include payments of
$32,000 to Peavy & Sons,
$68,000 to Holland and
Knight Law Firm and several
other smaller bills that are
due.
The city will pay the money
back at a rate of $28,994.01 to


the bank and $31,000 to the
reserve fund per month. The
entire payback period,
according to Bill Bogan city
manager/finance director, will
be 18 months.
The decision to borrow the
money was not an easy one. It
took nearly three hours for the
commission to reach a
conclusion. Commissioners
Andy Gay and Finley Cook
wanted to borrow the entire
amount. from the bank.
Commissioners Derrick Elias


and Sherrie Taylor didn't want
to borrow but rather take the
money from reserves and
repay the money to the city.
That way, they argued, the
city would not have to pay
interest and save that money.
Mayor Keith Dowdell broke
the tie and voted with Gay
and Cook after thinking over
his decision for several
minutes before committing.

Five honored for service to society


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
Five very deserving women have
been selected as this year's recipients
of the Woman of the Year in five
categories. The women are selected
and voted on by members of the
Gadsden County Chapter of the
National Hook-Up of Black Women
recently.
"The women this year have exhibited
the qualities we look for in women.
They are the unsung heroines of this
community. In many instances they


and have gone about the work of
helping our community grow and
aiding those in need without fanfare or
without regard to receiving
recognition," said NHBW 2007
chairwoman,.Moneek Walker.
The women will be honored this
Saturday, June 23, at a noon luncheon
at the Micheal R. Moore Lodge #764
at 102 East Washington Street, two
blocks east of the Leaf Theatre. (The
site was changed from Carter-
Parramore Academy because the
school's air conditioner is not
operating.)


The recipient for Family Values is
Mary Louise Brown Phillips. A
lifelong resident of the Oak Grove
Community, Mrs. Phillips knows what
it means to be supportive of family
and she instills the values of family
not only in her own children, but also
in the community.
"This woman is awesome. She raised
her own eight children and when her
daughter-in-law died in childbirth in
1977 she took on the responsibility of
raising .his. six children," NHBW
member Valencia Denson said.
People who know her describe her as


"kindhearted and loving." While she
now served on the Mother's Board of
Zion Hope Primitive Baptist Church,
she said she was reared to love God
and allows him to lead her life. Her
children, Willie B., Lauretha, Linzell,
Luther, Frances and Robert adore their
mother, she is also adored by her 15
grandchildren and 33 great
grandchildren.
Cornelia Ann Henry Smith of Gretna
was named Woman of the Year in the
area of Education. Just about anyone

Fountain Howard May Sr. was a bit
like the orchids he loved to grow: Rare,
recognizable and from a historically
significant family that set its roots in
Gadsden County in the 1800s.
When he died at 87 June 12 after
battling pneumonia for a few days, he
left a trail of family and friends of all
ages.
"He was just a really outgoing people
person. He loved people," said Fount


May Jr., one of May's two sons. "Dad
was still very active at 87 he-would not
meddle, but he would still give advice."
Mr. May was born in Gadsden County
Oct. 17, 1919 at the family home. The
son of Hollaman May and Lawson
Howard May, he graduated from Quincy
high School in 1937 and went on to
attend the University of Florida, where
he was a member of the Kappa Alpha
Order.
He served in the U.S. Army Air Corps
intelligence branch during
World War II, during which time' he


met his wife, Carolyn Bailey Brinson of
Monticello.
She had traveled to South Carolina to
visit an aunt. May, stationed in South
Carolina, met her there.
"They were together from then on,"
Fount May Jr. said.
The two had three children: Fountain
Howard May Jr., Martha Brinson (May)
Sapp and John Bradford May.
They had been'married 63 years at the

Former Midway mayor, councilperson passes


By LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor
Mary Lee Hill had a mind of her
own.
Her husband, Morris Thomas, said
she chose to keep her maiden name
when they married. They met when he,
a Midway native, returned home for a
visit from his house in Massachusetts
and she, a Tallahassee native, had


moved back home after working for
NASA.
"She was a very gregarious person,"
Thomas said. "She got along well with
most other people."
Hill died June 14 at the nursing home
she moved to after having a stroke in
2000. She was 73.
"She had been a city councilperson
and mayor of Midway until she
became ill then she had to step


down," Thomas said.
The couple moved to Midway in
1990 after having retired in Texas.
Once in Midway, however, both took
an active role in the community.
Hill was on the Tallahassee Board of
Directors and participated in the
Gadsden County Juvenile Justice
Center.
Thomas was the first police chief of
Midway.


"I was the first police chief in
Midway, and she was so supportive of
me," he recalled.
Through her work, both ,volunteer
and paid, Hill was well-known in the
area, Thomas said.
"A lot of people not only in Midway
but in Leon and Gadsden counties a
lot of people knew her," he said.
Strong and Jones Funeral Home is in
charge of arrangements.

FSU, FAMU to co-host field


day featuring mutant corn


A bizarre maze of crazy corn --
make that a living field map of
the maize genome, says Florida
State University biologist Hank
Bass -- will be on display from
9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
Wednesday, June 20, during
"Maize-10-Maze" Field Day
2007, to be held at Florida A&M
University's Research Farm in
Quincy.
Coordinated by FSU's
biological science department
and FAMU's College of
Engineering Sciences,
Technology & Agriculture
(CESTA), the collaborative
science outreach event is open
to the public, free of charge, and
includes a coolout, liinch arid
c d dJi'nks 'Educatioiial 'or
tsummei camp, groups .. are
welcome.
Self-guided tours through the
colorful Maize-10-Maze will


showcase nearly 100 mutant
corn families, each representing
a single gene mutation in one of
corn's 10 chromosomes. The
field model of ongoing maize
genome research led by FSU
Associate Professor Bass serves
to illustrate genetic control of
plant growth and development.
"You'll have to see it to believe
it," said Bass of the "corny"
mutants, adding that June is a
perfect time to view what he
describes as a sort of botanical
carnival freak show. Among
many unusual specimens in the
Maize-10-Maze are albino and
six-inch-high dwarf mutants and
a "lazy mutant" that prefers to
lie .on the ground 'rther6 tha"i
stand up straight.,
Additional favorites among the-,
mutants include the Knotted,
Gnarley, Corngrass and Rolled
mutants.

time of his death.
When Mr. May returned to
Quincy after serving in the war,
he joined the family business,
May Tobacco Company, growing
shade tobacco with his brother,
Don May Sr., and his uncle, Fred
May.
In 1971, after 26 years as
tobacco farmers, Fount and Don
converted one of their tobacco
farms into a 4-acre container
nursery.
One of his grandchildren,
Richard May, remembers him
saying that was the happiest day
of his life, "although the
argument could be made that the
happiest day of his life was the
day he married Carolyn 'MaMay'


Brinson," he said.
May gardened extensively, with
a bountiful garden at home
boasting roses, azaleas,
dogwood, hydrangea, plumbago,
agapanthus, caladiums and many
more shrubs and perennials.
"He loved anything of beauty,"
Fount May Jr. said. "He loved
flowers. He grew orchids as a
hobby had a greenhouse just for
orchids."
Like many Gadsden County
residents, local Chamber of
Commerce Executive Director
David Gardner said he has fond
memories of May, who was
friends with his father.
"Mr. Fount really was
everything embodied by 'The


Greatest Generation,' he said.
"As one of my Dad's closest
friends, he was always a part of
my life and will forever be.
Quincy, Gadsden County and this
country are a better place
because of him and he will be
deeply missed by my family and
this community."
Dick Suber, a fellow
nurseryman whose daughter,
Beth, married Fount May Jr.,
described May as a giving,
Christian friend with a strong
sense of humor.
"We got close after our children
married," Suber said. "He was a
really jolly fellow everybody
loved. He was an outgoing,
Christian man. He was a


gentleman and he was a friend of
mine."
Suber, who owned Suber
Nursery.until he sold it around 16
years ago, said May helped him
get started in the business.
"When we went to nursery
shows, he took me and
introduced me to everybody I
could sell to. He was an unselfish
man he helped me any way he
could," Suber said.
Mr. May also loved the beach -
the family had a beach house at
Panama City Beach, Emerald
Crest and antiques.
"He loved antiques," Fount
May Jr. said.
"He'd buy them and refinish
them as a hobby."


WOMEN from Page 1


who attended the public schools
of Gadsden County has been
touched by Mrs. Smith. She
taught fourth grade for 12 years
at the former Friendship
Elementary School before
moving on the teach first grade
for four years at Chattahoochee
Elementary. Then, she spend
another 25 years in the classroom
at Greensboro High School.
She has taught kindergarten,
English, reading, mathematics
and exceptional student
education. And, as if teaching
wasn't enough, she found time to
help mentor and train young
ladies when she served as
cheerleader sponsor of the
Greensboro Bulldog Cheering
Squad. In addition to teaching
cheers and flips, she was also the
team's uniform designer.
She is a graduate of Florida A &
M University with a Bachelors
Degree in elementary and early
childhood education and a
master's Degree in reading and
Community College Education.
A lifelong member of Beulah
Hill Misionary Baptist Church,
she served as a trustee and on the
Pastor's Aid Board. She is also a
member of Sigma Gamma Rho
Sorority, FAMU (Gadsden and
Leon counties) 'Alumni
Association, ,National Association
of University Women, Ainerican
Legion #2" Senior Citizens,
arid he Biejat.a1t:BunchGtoup."'"
Her real passion, however, is
quilting. She says she spends as
much time as if it were a fulltime
job plus overtime. She enjoys
sharing her passion by teaching
quilting' classes or demonstrating
the art form at home quilting
bees.
It would be hard to find anyone
in Gadsden or Leon Counties


who has not heard of Rosalind
Tompkins Whiteside or the
organization she founded in 1991
called "Mothers In Crisis, Inc."
While the organization is based in
Tallahassee, she recently was
donated a house in Quincy which
she has opened as a local Mothers
In Crisis center. That is why she
has been named to recipient of
the Community Service Award.
She said her aim has always
been to expand the organization
to serve residents in Gadsden
County. She is an inspiration to
all who meet her and it is because
of her community service that she
was appointed by Gov. Jeb Bush
to serve on the Commission for
Volunteerism in Florida in 2005.
Her desire, through her
grassroots non-profit
organization, is to help women
and men break the bonds on
drugs and alcohol addiction. She
is also a poet and a published
author. Her book, "As Long As
There Is Breath In Your Body"
has inspired many. The Florida
State University graduate and is
also a minister along with her
husband, Pastor Charles Jerome
Whiteside, at the Turning Point
International Church. She
believes that empowering
families who are in crisis to be all
that they can be.
Gaylyn Pitts lovers her little'
shop "What A Blessiig Bouti qiue-
Cotisi~ghi-ient"? 'at* the conier of
Madison and Jefferson Streets in
downtown Quincy. The Woman
of the Year recipient for business
said she was giving another store
owner advice when the woman
offered her space in her shop and
she took it.
With the help of her family,
specifically her husband Billy
Pitts, her sisters, Dorothy Wood


and Vera Matthews, and her
daughter and son-in-law,
Cassandra and Terry Cooper, she
opened the store in 2005. She
credits her family with making it
possible for her to be in business.
After she suffered severe injuries
in a car accident, she wondered
briefly where her life woulr take
her. It is a blessing, she said that
she is alive today. The accident
left her with both legs broken, a
broken thigh, and a crushed right
ankle. The months of
recuperating and subsequently
learning to walk again were hard
but she preservered. Always
counting her blessings.
She uses the shop to help others
too. She has donated clothes to
families that have been burned
out. Over the past two years, she
has outfitted about 10 families
who have lost everything due to
fire. Her motto is that she has
been blessed and she wants to
pass it on to others, she said.
Business, is challenging. From
getting customers to walk
through the door to taking care of
all of the paperwork that comes
with owning a business. If
anyone knows that life in the
business world is not easy, Pitts
knows, because she has been on
both sides of it. For 12 years
she was a collections
representative for business
accounts. ith Sprint. It was a job
shle didn't like because it \%a>
stressful. She then became a
manager for four years at
Dillard's before the accident
sidetracked her for two years.
But business is also about
facing problems and moving on,
that has been a blessing for Pitts.
The recipient for Religion is the
Rev. Teresa R. McMillon. who
has served a pastor of Mt. Zion


Christian Methodist Episcopal
Church on 4th Street in Quincy
since 2003. This community is
fortunate to have a woman of
Rev. McMillon's caliber as she
fulfills her mission by reaching
out to those in need. Her outreach
ministry involves a special
monthly youth Bible study and
clothing giveaway ministry.
"She has an exceptional love for
people," said NHBW member
Cynthia Davis Hollaway. Her
moto is that God never fails and
believes that God will order your
steps in obedience to Him.
In 2001 she was given her first
ordination and continued her
ministry under the leadership of
Pastor Anita Davis. In 2004 she
received her Elders License. Her
mentors, she said, include Rev.
Daniels Williams, Elder Desi
Echols, Rev. Lamar Rittman and
other former pastors.
The 1976 James A. Shanks
High grad is married with three
children. She is presently
employed at Tallahassee
Community College.
"These woman, and others like
them in this community deserve
to be recognized and the National
Hook-Up of Black Women till
continue to do this annually. This
is the seventh year we have held
this luncheon," Walker said.

More matrimony


Quoth the coffeemaker: OP2, OP2


There are a lot of things in life that I like.
One of my favorite things is a wedding.
This weekend my neice, Tiana, my brother
Wallace's daughter, exchanged vows with a
great young man named Courtney
Roundtree.
The wedding itself was a beautiful affair.
Her colors were different shades of
lavender with dashes of pink thrown in for
splashes of color. All brides are beautiful
but she was exceptionally beautiful to me.
I'm not just saying that because she is my
neice either.
But what is so beautiful to me about
weddings is the promise they hold for the
future. The usually young couples are so
full of joy. It's a happy time for everyone.
From the bride and groom to the cuter-
than-cute kids who carry the ring, the
Bible, and the flower petals.
As much as I love weddings, I don't get
invited to a lot anymore. I suppose it's
because my friends have all been married a
time or two and those who haven't have,
like me, sworn off the whole idea of
marrying ever again.
Still I had a good time at my neice's
wedding, all three days of it. The pre-
wedding affair was great. My family had
almost the entire floor of the hotel and so
we didn't have to worry about making too
much noise and disturbing other guests.
We partied from early afternoon until early
morning. Of course, the couple wasn't
there; they were busy dealing with all those
last minute details that crop up whenever
something important is about to happen.
The weatherman had predicted rain for


Friday and Saturday was only supposed to
be good for ducks. But the rain held off
both days and when it was time to
exchange the vows the sun shone through
an ominous cloud Saturday afternoon. I
took that to mean a good sign for the
couple's happiness. I'm not all that
superstitious, but I am to a centain extent,
and I've always heard that if it rains on
your wedding day the marriage was going
to be stormy.
My weddings aren't over just yet.
Another neice, Carla, the daughter of my
brother Carl, is getting married in August.
Unlike Tiana, who had a formal wedding,
Carla has planned a casual wedding on
Daytona Beach. She has always wanted a
beach wedding. Even as a teenager, she
told anyone who listened that she was
getting married on the beach at sunrise and
she wanted all of the guests to come
barefoot.
I'm happy she changed her mind about
that sunrise wedding and the barefoot
thing, because as much as I love her and as
much as I love a good wedding, that was
going to be one tough decision for me to
make. I mean, the only way I am going to
make a sunrise wedding is if I stayed up all
night.
I have another couple of neices who are
of age for matrimony but it doesn't look
like they're making any plans to go down
the aisle anytime soon without a nudge or
two. Maybe after seeing their cousins tie
the knot, the other two might get the bug
and I'll be invited to a Christmas wedding.
They are so beautiful.


The thing sat mutely on my kitchen
counter this morning, not a noise nor
a flash from the digital display
window that for one long week toyed
mercilessly with my emotions.
Still shiny, though, like the day I
first pulled it from a cardboard box
and reread all the attributes that
caused me to excitedly plunk down
$24.95: A removable filter, filter
cover and permanent filter.
A non-stick warming plate. An anti-
drip function and a brew capacity of
10 cups. Programmable control
features that allow one to set the time
of day and wake up to a freshly-
brewed pot of coffee. Like magic.
If a better thing exists, I can't think
of it at the moment.
Visions of fresh ground coffee and
the satisfying sound of the crunch of
coffee beans permeated my thoughts.
I never needed freshly-ground coffee
before, but now, suddenly, it was an
essential part of my existence that
would propel me from average coffee
consumer to coffee connoisseur.
Win-win, any way you look at it.
I was so wrong, in so many ways.
I thumbed through the instruction
manual the night I brought the
coffeemaker home, chuckling
warmly at its cautions: Do not touch
hot surfaces. Avoid contact with
moving parts. Blades are sharp. Do
not use appliance for other than
intended use.
With affection, I filled the tank with
water, put some ground coffee iii the :


permanent filter, set the timer and
headed to bed.
When at 5 a.m. the next day I was
greeted by the blue LED display
wildly flashing "OP2," I rubbed my
bleary eyes in disbelief.
No coffee dripping. No brain-jolting
java in sight.
In that state of complete denial, I
fumbled for the coffee manual, which
explained, ever so helpfully, that
when OP2 is displayed in the
window, the grinder box is not in
place and the coffee machine will not
follow its true destiny and make
coffee.
What it failed to address was how to
return the grinder box to its.proper
place. The thing apparently has the
hair trigger response of an Angolan
land mine in detecting footsteps, the
opening of a refrigerator door and, I
suspect, unprintable insults to the
coffeemakers' character muttered
under my breath.
For a week, I removed and replaced
the grinder box. Turned it slightly to
the left. Turned it slightly to the right.
Tapped it lightly on its top. Promised
to take back everything I had ever
said about it if it would only produce
coffee. Woke in the morning to an
ominous OP2.
It was on Friday morning I realized
I'd been beat.
I slipped caffeine-less out the door
that morning, quietly shuffling to my
car and sitting in line at a fast food
restaurant for. a cup of coffee. .


I mulled the idea while driving to
work that, much like other things, it's
not the packaging that's important, it's
the inner coffeemaker. Only that was
after four cups of coffee, so it was not
exactly quite that serene.
In fact, the mulling was much more
like, "I could drive to that company's
headquarters in a day, I could do it, I
know I could, I need to talk to the
head honcho about this, it's not right
to sell innocent people something that
was born broke, I wonder why that
woman is wearing a jacket, it's
already humid outside, gosh the other
cars are moving slow this morning,
did I just see gas is down to $2.96?
I'm going to call a friend of mine and
have her get map quest directions to
that company's headquarters, then I'll
snatch them out of her hand as I drive
by and call work to let them know
where I'm going, what in the world
was Bob Barker thinking when he
endorsed Rosie O'Donnell as the next
host of 'The Price is Right,' what's up
with that, did I lock the car doors?
Wait, I'm IN the car, OK, good, I'll
get there faster that way ..."
That very day, I bought a coffee pot
for $6.99. It is not programmable. It
does not have an LED display. It
certainly doesn't grind coffee beans.
But it makes coffee. Black gold.
Elixir of old.
Now, if I could just talk somebody
into standing close enough to the road
for me to grab a page of map quest
directions as I drive by :.-..

Fathers and sons


I got the expected calls for Father's Day.
Both boys (or their wives) sent a card.
And Jesse mailed a gift. Cathy "surprised"
me with a box of the new Titleist Pro Vlx
golf balls. I pointed out that I'm not her
father.....but I didn't give.back the Pro
Vl's.
I miss my Father.
I wish I could send him a dozen brand
new golf balls. Or a gray work shirt. Or a
box of chocolates. Daddy wasn't much on
gifts. And it was near about impossible to
buy him anything. He lived pretty simple.
He didn't want much. He didn't require
much. And if you were going to make a
fuss over it.....well, he'd just as soon you
leave it alone.
I loved him more than you could ever
imagine.
And I grew up trying so hard not to
disappoint him. I mowed the grass. I ran to
the store for his tobacco. I said "yes sir"
and "no sir". If Amos or Andy said
something funny and Dad laughed, I
laughed too. I knew not to make a sound
during Gunsmoke. And I remember every
single day how he w6uld get out of the cab
of that old 1947 International truck and I'd
meet him with two gloves .and a
ball.....we'd get a lot of throwing in
before supper.
Dad worked hard and stayed busy
everyday of his life. I wonder if he
remembered those late afternoon tosses.
Or playing "kick the can" with all the
neighborhood kids. Or the whipping he
gave me because I'd said a "discouraging
word" about the dreadful cauliflower
Mom had cooked for dinner. Or the all
night Rook games. Or the Saturday
evenings we spent around that old stand


up Zenith. Or the hours he spent teaching
me to get both hands on the wheel and
steer the car gently.
Dad understood boys better than Mother
sometimes. He'd put up with a little
pushing and shoving at the dinner table.
He didn't mind a dog or a turtle in the
house. But don't you go to thinking he
was soft, If you messed up bad enough he
would put you back on the "straight and
narrow" in a New York minute!
I cried like a baby when we lost the
Little League regional finals to Paris. And
it hurt just as. much (although I thought I
was too old to cry) when Huntingdon
waxed us my senior year in football. Dad
never said a word after either game. I
couldn't figure out if he just didn't care or
if he trusted me enough to work through it
on my own terms.
He was sitting down the right field line
when.I made the diving catch against
Middle Tennessee State University. And
he was behind home plate when I hit one
half a mile over the left field wall at
Centre College in Danville, Kentucky. He
never mentioned either play to me. I
wonder if they were as vivid in his mind
as they have remained in mine......
I really miss my Father. And I'm not
sure my sons today could understand even
remotely the esteem I have for him.
sometimes I think I was so intent on
raising Josh and Jess "correctly" that I
hindered more than helped. Dad gave me
lots of space. Sometimes I think I
smothered the boys. They pointed out on
more than one occasion in rather
despairing tones that I was "not like the

Editor:
Ms. Ashmore's letter to the editor of
June 14th was read with interest. I must
confess that I have not been to a county
commission meeting for several years.
Since I take blood pressure medicine and
dislike Tums and Rolaids, I just decided to
stay away and avoid restless bowel .
syndrome. My compliments to Ms.
Ashmore for her sense of humor and
commitment, both virtues are needful
when attending commission meetings.
Both the Quincy and county commissions
have a legacy of being a part of the "in"
crowd-inept, inexperienced, incapable,
inefficient, and indifferent.
.During my years, I have observed that
people who heretofore have had little
responsibility or authority often have
dificulty in exercising their newfound
position. A grandiose feeling of
importance can cause one to become
infatuated with what they perceive to be
power. On the grand scheme of things, a
county commissioner in a small struggling,
southern county is akin to being emperor
of the North Pole but some folks have
difficulty in increasing their own
importance.
My Dad told me to keep things in
perspective. "It is nice to be important, but
more important to be nice." I recall
someone else saying that "going to class
does not guarantee one will have class."
Bill Shuey, Quincy
Editor:

Holly Branch Subdivision;
There are at least five reasons why I think
that this is. a bad project:
Limited access and increased traffic.
There will be only one entrance and exit to
this development: through the industrial
park. In Dec. 2006 the Department of
Transportation counted nearly 19,000 cars
passing their counting device at the Flying
J" truck sto daily. I am sure that there
are more today (6 months later). It is
practically impossible to access Hwy 90
from Dupont Road at certain times of the
da.
aBuilding 300 new homes (as described
by the USArmy Corps of Engineer


Application) or either 100 units in a flood
plain of the Ocklocknee River is not
feasible. This proposed development is only
.7 mile from the Ocklocknee River. A
comprehensive environmental impact
study needs to be conducted to access how
adjacent lands will be affected both
directly and indirectly by such a high
density home site development. The
adjacent wetlands and the Holly Branch
stream are sure to be impacted. The
increase of nutrient and sediment levels in
the wetlands, stream, and river is a real
possibility.
The wildlife of the area and surrounding
areas will be devastated. The application to
the Army Corp states, there will bd no
affect on any threatened endangered
species of designated critical habitat." This
could not be further from the truth. This
information was supplied by Coastal
Lumber Company, and was not verified
by the Army Corps of Engineers. I have
lived and hunted in the area for nearly 60
years. My observation is: there are black
bears, fox squirrels, several species of wood
peckers, wood storks, gopher tortoises,
gra and red fox, teralhogs, deers and
turkeys living in the area. There are also a
number of endangered plants. Three years
ago, a Florida Panther was also reported as
being seen on adjoining property. This was
reported to the Florida Wildlife
Commission.
Inceasing the City of Midway's tax base
is not a valid reason to build-100 or 300
new homes. I do not believe there is any
compelling need for 300 hundred (or 100)
new houses at this site. No potential
economic increase could out weigh the
damage that is done when habitats are
permanently lost and wildlife once again
has to cope with survival. The question
that should be asked is "isn't there enough
suitable land of higher elevation in this
area to take care of any necessary
progressive land use?"
The following is my summation of the
copy of the letter from DCF to the City of
Midway dated May 29, 2007:
The DCF has ruled that the four land
use amendments, which were submitted
by the City of Midway, for "Holly
Branch" Subdivision are not eligible for
"small scale" amendments. They must be
adopted as "large scale" amendments


pursuant of Florida Statues Sec 163.3184.
his development (Holly Branch)
subdivision was described in the US Corp
of Engineers application as a "residential
development ofapprox 300 single-family
residents." The Florida Cabinet ruled in
1996, that developments can not divide
into small tracts in order to avoid DCA
involvement called "case law" which
means a precedence has already been set by
a previous ruling.
Quote Letter,May 29, 2007 to the City
of Midway: "As these the amendments do
not qualify for treatment under the "small
scale statue, it is our conclusion that they
were not legally adopted and or not in
effected as a part of the city's
comprehensive plan. Accordingly, the city
(Midway) should not issue deve opment
permits for the the "Holly Branch'
subdivision on the basis of these
amendments.

Editor;
Recently I've moved here from
Rochester, N.Y., and you can say I'm in a
bit of a culture shock. But over all I'm very
excited about learning more about both
Gadsden and Leon counties.
A while ago on my way to church, I was
watching a weekend morning news
program and one of the segments stated
why are more city dwellers migrating to
the country, and most of the people s
responses were quite simple: more space;
less traffic; quietness.
I've had people come up to me and
asked how doI feel about country and
small town life, and my response was very
positive. Not only am Igetting the vibe
about Florida. But I've had the
opportunity to meet some wonderful
people as well as meeting relatives I haven't
seen in years, as well as the first time.
Though I only been here five months, I
do admit I miss my family and friends, but
I don't miss the big city life. Since moving
to Quincy, it has been a new beginning.
Now that I'm now a resident of Quincy,
I'm looking toward a fresh new lease on
life, and striving for the best of things. Let
me just say Quincy is my new home, and
I'm very excited about it.

Talent search co-ordinator looking for prospects


By LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor

Lisa Roberts is looking for a
few good Gadsden County stu-
dents.
Six hundred, to be exact.
As coordinator of the feder-
ally-funded Educational Talent
Search, she plans to set up shop
in Havana Middle School and
help students who meet the pro-
gram's criteria have a better
chance of choosing suitable
careers and academic paths.
"It really is a good program.
There are lots of opportunities
for students," Roberts said. "We
try to find scholarships for
them, help them plan careers."
This is the first year the pro-
gram has been available in
Gadsden County. It's available
to rising sixth- through 12th-


grade students who have a 2.5
g.p.a. or higher and who
demonstrate academic poten-
tial.
"It's really good to be able to
start with them in middle
school," she said.
"By the time you get to be a
junior or senior in high school
to start talking about college
and careers, it's almost too
late."
At least two-thirds of the stu-
dents accepted into the program
have to meet low-income
requirements and be the child of
parents who do not hold a four-
year degree.
Students with a documented
disability are accepted without
having to meet income or
parental education require-
ments.
Roberts has planned trips to

expense paid trips to colleges around the state and in Georgia as
well as tutoring, career planning help, assistance with standard-
ized tests and scholarship and financial aid information. (Photo

colleges throughout Florida and
near Atlanta over the summer -
all expenses paid, even to the
amusement parks to which she
plans to take participants.
"We do try to encourage stu-
dents, to motivate them, to
move them beyond the comfort
zone," Roberts said.
"I hate for them to start
remedial course in college when
they can get that for free in high
school."
Those accepted will have the
option of visiting the University
of North Florida and Florida
Community College in
Jacksonville; the University of
Central Florida and Valencia
Community College in
Orlando; the University of
South Florida and Hillsborough
Community College in Tampa;

Commission votes against fuel taxes for Gadsden


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

Gadsden Countians won't be
forking over more money in the
form of fuel taxes anytime soon.
That's because Commissioners
Eugene Lamb and Doug Croley
would not support the tax ordi-
nances, that needed a majority,
or three votes plus one, to pass.
The first ordinance to fall
was a levy that is called the
"Ninth Cent Fuel Tax on Motor
Fuel."
"I do not support any
increase at this time until we see
what happens statewide,"
Croley said. Lamb said he spoke


with his constituents on both
taxes and that he would not sup-
port a tax without taking it to the
people in the form of a referen-
dum. "This is something that the
people ought to decide whether
they want this or not," Lamb
said.
Commissioner Ed Dixon said
that most of the money from the
(ninth cent fuel tax) would
come from travelers on the
interstate. "This would not be a
heavy burden," he said, "borne
by the citizens of this county."
Another fuel-related tax ordi-
nance, the "1 to 5 cent Local
Option Gas Tax" also failed to
pass during Tuesday night's reg-


ular county commission meet-
ing. That ordinance also needed
a majority plus one vote to pass,
and both Croley and Lamb cited
the same reason for voting
against the Ninth Cent
Ordinance as, the reason neither
could support the local option
gas tax ordinance.
Budget director, Davin
Suggs, said the Ninth Cent Fuel
Tax could bring in about
$250,000 annually while the
local option tax could bring in
around $900,000 for transporta-
tion needs that would include
paving as.well as road upkeep.

Wind inspections still available from state


More than one month ahead
of schedule, Florida Chief
Financial Officer Alex Sink
today announced that the My
Safe Florida Home (MSFH)
program has "blown" through
its waiting list and urged more
Florida homeowners to take
advantage of the valuable serv-
ice through the program. Since
the program resumed offering
inspections in late April, more
than 50,000 Floridians who
were on the program's waiting
list from the pilot phase have
received free wind inspections.
After the program got off to
a slow start in 2006, CFO Sink
streamlined the program to pro-
vide better service to more
Floridians. New applicants can
apply at the MSFH program's
Web site at
www.MySafeFloridaHome.com
or over the program's toll-free
helpline at 1-866-513-MSFH
(6734). With a free wind
inspection from the MSFH pro-
gram, Floridians can learn how
safe their homes are, what they
can do to strengthen their
homes against hurricanes, and if
they are eligible for savings on
their hurricane insurance premi-
ums. Homeowners who receive
an inspection through the
MSFH program may be eligible
for matching grants up to
$5,000 to help harden their
homes.
"As a businesswoman, I
wanted the My Safe Florida
Home program to serve
Floridians more efficiently and
provide the critical information
homeowners needed to harden
their homes," said CFO Sink,
who leads the Department of
Financial Services. "We are
well on our way to informing
Florida families about ways to
harden their homes and helping
them save money on their insur-
ance premiums."
Any Floridian who lives in a
single-family site-built home is
eligible for a free wind inspec-
tion through the program.


Homeowners who receive free
wind inspections through the
MSFH program will receive a
detailed inspection report, com-
plete with eligibility informa-
tion on matching grants and
estimated insurance premium
discounts, if the homeowner is
eligible.
In order to be eligible for the
program's matching grant reim-
bursements of up to $5,000,
homeowners who sign up now
must meet the following
requirements under a new law:
have received a completed wind
inspection report after May 1,
2007; live in a single-family,
site-built home built before
March 1, 2002; have a valid
homestead exemption; insured
value of $300,000 or less; and
be located in the wind-borne
debris region.
CFO Sink this week led the
Florida Cabinet to require insur-
ance companies for the next 90
days to recognize the MSFH
wind inspection reports as suffi-
cient evidence for homeowners
to access insurance premium
discounts, if they are eligible.
Previously, participating
homeowners were required by
insurance companies to hire a
wind inspector or other licensed
professional to fill out a sepa-
rate form to access insurance
discounts, often at great cost to
the consumer. After 90 days,
future inspections with the
MSFH program will include a
certified Uniform Mitigation
Form for Florida homeowners
who are eligible for a discount
on their insurance premiums.
Since April 2007, the MSFH
program has awarded more than
5,600 grants to homeowners to
harden their homes. Nearly 250
homeowners have completed
the improvements recommend-
ed in their inspection reports for
a total payout of more than
$680,000. Homeowners are
being reimbursed for half the
cost up to $5,000 on a variety of
home improvements, including


hurricane shutters, reinforced
garage doors and roof enhance-
ments.


CFO Sink's goal is to com-

6 The Gadsden County Times June 21, 2007


Sheriff invites public to next session of Teen Court


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

The new Teen Court will
showcase Tuesday, June 26, at 6
p.m. in the Guy Race
Courthouse Annex at 6 p.m.
,"We want the public to come
out and see what Teen Court is
all about," said Sheriff Morris
Young. The court is part of the
Gadsden County Sheriff


Office's community justice pro-
gram.
Teen Court is not a new
innovation, Gadsden County
had it's first Teen Court
Program several years ago, but
when state funds dwindled, the
program was cut. The revital-
ized program still offers youth
offenders an alternative to pros-
ecution through the juvenile
justice system.


"We have to do something to
help youthful offenders. They
have to understand that there
are consequences for their
actions, but at the same time,
many of them do not deserve to
have a criminal conviction
shadow hanging over their
heads for a youthful mistake,"
Young said.
Youth who participate in the
Teen Court Program have the


opportunity to have the original
charges against them dismissed
and are able to avoic a reord of
prosecution and conviction.
Referrals for the program are
made by the State Attorney's
Office, the Court System, and
in some instances he Florida
Department of Juvenile Justice.
For the first time, parents, gura-
dians, and even schools can
refer youths to the program.


Teen Court is a sentencing
hearing conducted by trained
teen attorneys from the local
middle and high schools that
volunteer each Tuesday night to
serve on jury duty, according to
Inv. Ulysses Jenkins, public
information officer for the
GCSO.
Tuesday's event will be the
first mock trial and will include
information on how families,


schools and gurdians can make
referrals.
Teen Court operates on the
same principal as adult court.
The exception is that everyone
who participates is a teen-ager
with the exception of the judge.
"This is a great diversoniary
program that offers an alterna-
tive to teens who enter the juve-
nile justice system," Young
said.


Host families for foreign students needed in Gadsden County


Foreign high school students
are scheduled to arrive soon for
academic semester and year
homestay programs, and the
sponsoring organization needs a
few more local host families.
The students are anxiously
awaiting news of their new fam-
ilies. These young ambassadors
are looking forward to fulfilling
their life-long dreams.


Clary's Bail

Bond Agency

850.627.3111


According to Pacific
Intercultural Exchange (P.I.E.)
Executive Director, John Doty,
the students are all between the
ages of 15 and 18 years, are
English-speaking, have their
own spending money, carry acci-
dent and health insurance, and
are anxious td share their cultur-
al experiences with their new
American families. P.I.E. cur-
rently has programs to match
almost every family's needs,
ranging in length from a semes-
ter to a full academic year, where
the students attend local high
schools.
P.I.E. area representatives


match students with host fami-
lies by finding common interests
and lifestyles through an infor-
mal in-home meeting.
Prospective host families are
able to review student applica-
tions and select the perfect
match. As there are no "typical"
host families, P.I.E. can fit a stu-
dent into just about any situation,
whether it is a single .parent, a
childless couple, a retired couple
or a large family.
Families who host for P.I.E.
are also eligible to claim a
$50.00 per month charitable con-
tribution deduction on their item-
ized tax returns for each month


they host a sponsored student.
For the upcoming programs,
P.I.E. has students from
Germany, the Former Soviet
Union, Venezuela, Argentina,
Brazil, Japan, Hungary, Korea,
Mexico, Australia, Yugoslavia,
China, and many other countries.
P.I.E. is also participating in two
special government-funded pro-
grams to bring scholarship stu-
dents from the Newly
Independent States of the former
Soviet Union as well as predom-
inantly Islamic countries such as
Yemen, Syria, Jordan,
Morocco, Kuwait, Iraq and
Qatar to the United States. P.I.E.


is a non-profit educational
organization that has sponsored
more than 25,000 students from
45 countries since its founding in
1975. The organization is desig-
nated -by the United States
Department of
State and is listed by the
Council on Standards for
International Educational Travel
(CSIET), certifying that the
organization complies with the
standards set forth in CSIET's
Standards for International
Educational Travel Programs.
Doty encourages families to
contact the program immediate-
ly, as it will allow the proper


time for the students and hosts to
get to know one another before
they actually meet for the first
time.
Gadsden County area fami-
lies interested in learning more
about student exchange or
arranging for a meeting with a
community representative may
call P.I.E., toll-free, at 1-866-
546-1402. The agency also has
travel/study program opportuni-.
ties available for American high
school students as well as possi-
bilities for community volun-
teers to assist and work with area
host families, student's and
schools.

Program aims at getting parents involved in children's education


By LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor

Audrey Lewis-Potter's eyes
flash, hands flitting here and there
when she talks about DLOPI.
The program she introduced to
Gadsden County Schools -
Different Levels of Parental
Involvement is one she believes
will pull teachers, parents and stu-
dents together to produce motivat-
ed and successful students.
When she says it's her passion,
she's not kidding.
"Using different levels of
parental involvement offers both
educators and parents a different
way to look at parental involve-
ment," she said. "A teacher can
look at this objectively and get a
good idea of parental involve-
ment."
Lewis-Potter, who trains edu-
cators around the state how to
implement a parental involvement
program of their own, says
DLOPI was designed to encour-*
age parents to become involved in
their children's education at
school and at home.
Teachers use a checklist daily
to determine the level of participa-
tion by students' parents. Lewis-
Parker then compares scores each
semester against academic
progress, and has found a direct
correlation between high levels of
parental involvement and aca-
demic achievement. Students
with parents who are very
involved in their children's educa-
tion also exhibit fewer behavioral
problems.
Level one looks at basic
parental responsibilities and the
student's attendance. Teachers
check to see that children attend
school regularly and on time;
have the necessary school sup-
plies; provide the school with the
correct address and phone num-
ber; have a home environment
that encourages learning and are
encouraged by parents to have
positive feelings about school.
At level two, teachers consider
parental communication and sup-
port. Do parents meet their child's
teacher? Do they communicate
regularly with the teacher by


Audrey Lewis-Potter, coor-
dinator of Parent Services for
the Gadsden County School
District, says DLOPI
(Different Levels of Parental
Involvement) can make a cru-
cial difference in children's
education. (Photo by Leslie
Roberts)

phone and/or letters? Are parents
talking with their children.daily
about school activities and
encouraging the student's effort?
Level two also assesses whether
homework assignments are com-
plete and whether students have a
quiet, well-lighted place to study.
It asks whether parents support
the school in developing self-dis-
cipline in the child.
Level three helps measure par-
ents' involvement in helping chil-
dren become literate' and giving
them tutorial assistance in areas in
which they need it.
Ways parents can do that
include encouraging children to
read at home, monitoring TV
viewing and leaving subtitles on
when children do watch TV, read-
ing with their children and letting
their children see them reading,
being aware of what their children
are learning and signing and
returning all papers to school
Parents are ranked at level four
if they volunteer and/or mentor at
school and at home. Activities a

eed Internet

level four parent participates in
include visiting the child's class-
room, maintaining regular contact
with the teacher, volunteering in a
needed area in the school, volun-
teering to help with field trips,
sending materials or supplying
items to help with classroom
activities, attending at least three
Parent-Teacher-Student
Organization meetings per year,
becoming involved in planning
school activities and fundraisers
and attending all parent-teacher
conferences.
At level five, the highest level,
parents are strongly involved in
leadership and partnership activi-
ties. They are officers of PTSO or
PTA and/or school advisory coun-
cils; participate in the decision-
making process; attend training
and workshops; train other par-
ents and share information;
become knowledgeable of current
educational laws; maintain con-
tact with lawmakers to help
ensure the best educational sup-
port'for all children; form a par-
ent-teacher support group and
maintain an open line of commu-
nication between the school and
the community.
Lewis-Potter said her goal for
next year is to give teachers tools
to stay in touch with parents of
low-level students and to give
parents tips on ways they can
become more involved. Her list of
10 communication strategies

includes teachers calling parents
on the phone, writing them notes,
setting up conferences and creat-
ing newsletters. She also has plans
to put a parent contract in place in
which parents agree to complete
one component of each level of
involvement in DLOPI.
"We want something that is
educator- and parent-friendly,"
she said. "To me it gives parents


more of an option than saying,
'Oh, I scored this level, I'm a bad
parent.' They can say, 'I'm a good
parent. I have a roof over my
head.' A lot of things happen
behind the scenes character,
good behavior, cleanliness.
Parents send us the best they have.
I think we can empower them by
saying, 'Thank you for what
you're doing and please continue


doing it.' We're working on being
more family-focused and friendly.
There are so many little tips you
can give on math, when you're
cooking, or when dad is working
outside so many tools you can
give them. Parents are constantly
teaching their children. It's a
whole modeling of behavior.
There's a place at every level for
someone to get involved."

Bv Joe Ferolito


One of the best times I eTeiy had at
a sporting \ ent wa.s when I attended
the game Wade Boggs got his 3,000th


I am e\er grateful to a man named
Paul Shue. foi that opportunity. I've


ne\er met Paul Shuey, but I suie am
acquainted \%th his Uncle Bill Shuey.
Bill and I had several battles on a
baseball field and agreement or not.
vwe always had respect for each other.
Paul Shuie pitched in the Major
Leagues for 9 years with the
Cleveland Indians and the Los
Angeles Dodgers. He was an out-
standing and \er\ valuable relief
pitcher.
When e\er the Indians came to
Tampa Bay. Bill would call, and ask if
I wanted his nephew\ to leave me tick-
ets. On several occassions. I took up
the offel and tickets were always at
will call. One of those occasions was
when Boggs got that 3.001)0 hit.
In 2004 Paul had to get out of base-
ball due to chronic arthritis in a hip.
Two repair surgenes didn't help
and it seemed Paul's baseball career
was done.


The former number two overall
draft pick from North Carolina heard
about a process that might help his sit-
uation in Canada. With a pau of
Major League orthopedic surgeons
obsering the process. Paul had the
surgery done to repair his hip. The
process also helped realign a leg. and
Paul returned to his North Caiolina
home to begin healing.
He also started working out v.ith
his dad. and Bill's brother. Ken. w ho
has a great reputation of helping col-
lege bound pitchers.
Through a lot of hard v.ork things
started getting better tor Paul. and his
control and velocity started coming
around.
A nice thing happened tlis past
winter when the Baltimore Orioles
signed Paul to a minoi league con-
tract, and invited him to spnng train-
ing with the big club.


A ruptured tendon in his heel. just
before the end of spring training. set
Paul back again. But hard work in
extended spnng training got him to
AAA Norfolk. V\rginia.
Monda\. the Orioles called him to
join the parent club in San Diego, and
at 36. Paul ShueN is back in the majors
after being. \%hat iou ma\ call, out of
baseball for tv'o \eai,.
Needless to say his fanuly is very
happy for him. They aie pirud of hus
peisistence and persei lerauce.
Uncle Bill. ho al' as had a great
fondness for his nephe\v, is especially
proud.
Pitchers in baseball are a preniunm.
Paul Shuey has \\oiked haid to put
one of those premnuum's back in the
game.
Heie's hoping he'll be one of those
premiums that sta\ s around for quite a
while.

By Gumbo, would you
believe this? 65% of the popu-
lation of GA drinks water out of
Lake Lanier and sence Gov.
Perdue has had the State of GA
pray for rain, it has rained steady
near every day. Lanier is only 2
ft. down while Okiechobee is
drying up.
It is a true fact, that one
should not shoot Alligators.
First, it's against a Federal Law,
if you need to git rid of a Gator,
call GA DNR. A permit will be
issued and a nuesans Gator
Hunter will come and move the
Gator. Do not shoot the Gator in
the eyes. A blind Gator has got
to eat and eats by sound.
Babies, Dogs, Cats and Men.
Many nice Bass were taken
on Top Water Lures, one boat
reported 28 Bass, 7 of them in
the 5 pound class. There was
good Bass fishing all week long
until Friday, that day killed
everyone. What has happened
we think is the dark nites. By
Saturday evening Bass was back


on the bite again. Many were
taken.
Very good catches of Crappie
has been made all week long,
some on Minnows and most on
Jigs. Some say floating a Jig
over thin grass will produce you
some very fine slab sides.
The Bream fishermen will
find huge Bluegill on beds. A
great number was taken
Saturday morning on Crickets.
One bed was near an acre big. A
lot of folks go pole fishen jist to
set and watch a cork. I've sed
many times before, "you can't
worry and watch a cork."
Some Catfish was taken this
week but very few and we saw
no Shellcrackers at all.
We note with great interest
that the Choctahatchee River
has stopped running, trapping a
great number of Gulf Coast
Sturgeon in it's deep pockets.
Also the Oklocknee River has
many of the Big Fellows jump-
ing 5 & 6 feet in the air. That's
how they "lose" their eggs.

The Gadsden County Times June 21, 2007 9


CITY from Page 1


suggested selling the industrial
park as a way to raise the money.
However, others on the
commission felt that the park sale
would generate funds only one
time. Recurring funds are needed
to help the city generate revenues,
they said.
Bogan said the city is current
with all of its bills and that all
vendors are being paid within a
30 to 45 day window. If vendors
aren't getting paid, he said, it is


because the invoices are not
reaching the finance department.
He admitted that sometimes
department directors keep
invoices on their desks too long
or that the invoices end up under
a stack of papers on "somebody's
desk."
Commissioner Gay said he got a
call two days ago from a vendor
who said he had not been paid in
90 days and that he could not get
anyone at City Hall to respond to


his inquiries about payment.
Bogan said he didn't know the
specific individual but that he has
not tried to avoid vendors.
The blame for the city's current
financial problems was laid at the
feet of the previous city manager
and finance director. Bogan said
that since he took over, less than a
year ago, the city has been
working on getting things caught
up. For instance, he said, when he
came the city was six months


behind in paying sales tax to the
state. The sales tax has been
brought current, and while OMI
and Waste Management ares still
owed a substantial amount he has
is paying each an additional
$30,000 per month on the past
due amount, according to Bogan.
Last Friday was the deadline for
Requests for Proposals to become
vendor for the city's garbage
service. Only two bids were
received and neither was' Waste


Management. Bogan said Waste
Management's corporate office
would not allow the local office
to bid because of the amount of
money the city still owes the
company.
City Attorney Jack McLean said
the company, according to the
contract, could take the city to
court and demand payment. But,
he said, the local company has
been working with the Waste
Management's attorney, Fred


Bateman, to resolve the payment
without going to court. Bateman
told commissioners that the
company "is not a bank" and
really wants the money they are
owed.
"I wish you'd borrow the money
and pay us off in the next week or
so," he said. 'Then maybe,
Bateman said, Waste
'Management would enter into
negotiations to extend the current
contract.


TALQUIN from Page 1


ways should be maintained,
particularly those that offer
access to the water.
The County said it is also
concerned that vacating the right-
of-way would hinder access of
fire trucks to a dry hydrant and
other emergency vehicles.
Idlewild representatives said
they planned to place a siren-
activated gate at the beginning of
the road, complete with


turnaround area, so it does not
stifle traffic.
The staff also expressed
concerns about drainage and
feared drainage ditches would
not properly be maintained if the
County abandons the right-of-
way. .
Idlewild representatives
responded that they planned to
sod the now-sandy area, thereby
improving drainage at the site.


In response to some of the
comprehensive plan concerns; an
Idlewild homeowner said the
right-of-way is useless as a
fishing or swimming area
because it is blocked by boat
sheds on the water.
He added ample fishing and
boat access opportunities are
available a half mile from the
Idlewild site.
Earlier in the meeting, Richard


HUNKERIN' from Page 4


and Dan Hinkle, Lake Talquin
landowners, requested that the
commission abandon and vacate
an approximate 125-foot portion
of Tharpe Street, a County
maintained public right-of-way,
and Lakeview Court, an
easement right-of-way.
The staff suggested the
commission vacate only a portion
of the vacation request, as the
easement is private and the
County has no authority to
abandon it.
The request comes from a
recent survey by the Hinkles that


shows part of the public right of
way infringes on the Hinkles'
septic tank and a portion of their
porch.
Joseph Kennedy, a neighbor of
the HInkles, said the private
easement is maintained by the
neighborhood, and there is no
reason for it to be vacated (if the
Commission even had the power
to do so.)
In other action:
-The commission voted to delay
a hearing on a Comprehensive
Plan Amendment. The hearing is
schedule to consider an


administrative request to amend
the Gadsden County
Comprehensive Plan, Future
Land Use Element, Traffic
Circulation Element, Housing
Element, Infrastructure Element,
Conservation Element and
Recreation and Open Space
Element by changing text
policies and associated maps to
reflect revised goals, objectives
and policies of the county.
The preceding items will be
brought before the Gadsden
County Board of Commissioners
at 6 p.m., Tuesday, July 3.


other dads". Of course, I
remember saying the exact same
thing back in '60 and '61.....
I am so proud of both boys
today. They are doing quite well.
They haven't needed me in years.
They have families to tend to.
And that is how it should be. I try
now to be around "just in case", I
want to be supportive, but I work
hard at not intruding. I learned
that from my Father.
And I take sheer delight in the
memories that remain ever so
present ever so clear. Like Josh
yelling "don't let go, don't let
go" as I held the bicycle upright
and raced down the driveway
with him on his first solo flight. I
still feel the butterflies dancing in
my stomach as I waited "on pins
and needles" at Jesse's first piano
recital. I craned my neck to get a
look at all the participants down
on the first row....Jess was
asleep. He wasn't quite as uptight
ar his oldn m-an


I remember a few shoving
matches at the dinner table.
Cathy would correct them. I
smiled and ate my green beans
with thoughts of other boys and a
great Father in mind. I did finally
say something about the mustard
on the ceiling....
Jess set the car on fire. Now
there is a memory to cling to! I
remember every heartbeat in both
of our chests when we were
clinging onto each other as we
plummeted down the Cascade
River.
I saw Josh make a leaping catch
up against the chain link fence in
right centerfield. It was one of
the best defensive plays by
anyone ever! And I've seen the
tears flowing down his little
cheeks after a particular hard
loss. I said nothing either time.
The catch was so good any
accolades from me would have
been superfluous and I figured he
\\[a tough enough to work


through the tears.
But believe you me, I shared
both. And I have forgotten
neither.
I wish Daddy hadn't died
before I could tell him how much
I loved him. And I think of a
couple of times that I disciplined
my boys maybe a little harsher
than the crime called for. The
roadmap for children, or parents,
isn't always easy to read. And
life is such that we don't get a
"do over."
I'm not smart enough, or
profound enough, or insightful
enough to understand the depth
of this father and son thing. But I
do know one thing for dead
'certain sure. I have so many real
and marvelous and un-take-
away-able memories in both
directions.....and I cherish every
one of them!

We Buy Cars, Trucks & SUVs!


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


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


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

Research shows

decline in skills

without learning

activities during

summer break

By LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor

For a lot of kids, summer means
days spent in front of the
television set or playing video
games.
But new research from the
Center for Summer Learning at
John Hopkins University shows
that when students return to
school in the fall, teachers spend
average of two months re-
teaching skills that were lost
during the summer.
Especially alarming is research
that shows low-income children
in particular suffer a decline in
reading skills over the summer
months while their middle-
income classmates tend to make
slight gains.
A recent study of Baltimore
students by Johns Hopkins
researchers showed that 65
percent of the achievement gap
between poor and affluent
children can be explained by
unequal summer learning
experiences during the
elementary school years.
Luckily, there are several easy -
and even fun ways to help slow
the summer brain drain.
Gadsden County Public Schools
emphasize summer reading,
requiring elementary students to

activity and trips to places like parks and museums during the summer can help kids retain the skills they learned in the previous school
year. (Photo by Leslie Roberts)


read five books, middle school
students to read three and high
school students to read two
before school starts again in the
fall.
"One of the biggest things
parents can do during the summer
is making reading a priority,"
school district spokeswoman

Jamoy Jones's face. Jamoy, 6, was one of several children to
participate in a summer program at the William McGill Library
in Quincy Monday. (Photo by Leslie Roberts)


Shaia Beckwith said.
One way to make it a fun
priority, is to participate in the
William A "Bill" McGill Library
in Quincy, which offers a host of
activities for children during the
summer.
Book clubs for fourth grade and
up, pre-K and up and sixth grade
and up meet Mondays at 4 p.m.;
--pre-teens and teens, get :a chance
to make masksand other artistic
articles at a hands-on arts and
craft 'workshop, which meets at
5:30 p.m. Wednesday; special
guests entertain children of all
ages Magic by Mark will take
place June 25 at 7 p.m.; and
family story time for ages 0-7 is
on Tuesday from 10:30 a.m.
until noon.
Not sure those activities have
anything to do with academic
success? Think again.
Ron Fairchild, executive
director of the Center for Summer
Learning, says activities that
introduce children to new ideas
will keep their minds sharp and
energized while they're out of
school.
According to the Center for
Summer Learning, Fairchild
advises parents to spend time at


the local library with their
children and to make time to read
every day.
He is also an advocate of
summer camps those offered by
schools, recreation centers,
universities and community-
based organizations have and
educational element more often
than not.
Get-kids out and about to the-
park, to, museums, zoos and to
nature centers.
That's where Mary Byrd, a
Quincy resident, spent part of
Monday afternoon with her
granddaughter, Bekah Malpass, 9,
and Bekah's friend, .Elli
Hernandez,.7.
"They've been playing at the
house but they wanted to do
something different," Byrd said.
Both girls said they enjoyed
exercising. their imaginations
during a day at the park.
"I like to pretend like they
(swing sets and forts) are little
houses," Bekah said.
Another bonus of heading
toward the playground is the
positive effect intense physical
activity has on academic
achievement, including increased'
concentration; improved

'U,


mathematics, reading, and writing
test scores and reduced disruptive
behavior.
Other suggestions Fairchild
offers:
> Practice math every day.
Turn a trip to the grocery store
into a review of math skills.
Using cooking to help teach
fractions. Measure items around
the house' oryard. *
>- Suck to a schedule during tie
summer and create a daily routine
for kids.
> Encourage and participate
in community service. Children
learn better and act out less when
they participate in activities that
boost their socio-emotional
growth.
) Find out what your child will
be learning during the next school
year by talking with teachers at
that grade level. Preview
concepts and materials over the
summer.
>- Limit time with TV and
video games, just as you do
during the school year. It always
makes sense to provide structure
and limits. The key is providing a
balance and keeping kids
engaged.

Odahowski arranged a summer
full of fun for area kids,
including this balloon animal
making session at the William
McGill Library in Quincy.

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.

State parks to reduce fees


To encourage more youth groups
to enjoy camping, the Department
of Environmental Protection's
(DEP) Florida Park Service is
reducing group camping fees to
$1.00 per child and $2.00 per
chaperone.per day. The single fee
gives campers access to all park
facilities and amenities. Youth and
adult group camping facilities and
group primitive sites are available
in 32 state parks located in every
region of the state.
"With rising gas prices and trav-
el expenses, we want to encour-
age our youth to take advantage of
the camping and recreational
opportunities in our own back-
yards," said Florida State Parks
Director Mike Bullock. "State
parks allow children and adults to
experience Florida's natural beau-
ty, abundant wildlife and historic
and cultural sites without travel-
ing far from home."
The fee reduction, already in
effect, precedes the launch of The
Great American Backyard
Campout (GABC), celebrated on
June 23, 2007. Organized by the
National Wildlife Federation,
GABC is a one-night event for


families, youth and individuals to
camp out in their backyards or
local parks and discover the fun of
being in the great outdoors. Last
year.more than 40,000 families,
youth groups and individuals par-
ticipated. Groups wanting to
reserve a campsite should contact
the state park directly for avail-
ability and guidelines.
The first two-time Gold Medal
winner honoring the nation's best
state park service, Florida's state
park system is one of the largest in
the country with 160 parks span-
ning 700,000 acres and 100 miles
of sandy white beach. From
swimming and diving in Florida's
rivers and springs to birding and
fishing or hiking and riding on
natural scenic trails, Florida's state
parks offer year-round outdoor
activities for all ages. Battle reen-
actments and Native American
festivals celebrate Florida's
unique history, while art shows,
museums and lighthouses offer a
window into Florida's cultural
heritage.

rBACK... TO THE
,^- lIw


vevse of the weekI:
But Jesus said, Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is
the kingdom of heaven. Matthew 19:14

Let the Children Come
"Children are to be seen and not
heard" Unfortunately that's the way
Today's society looks at the situation.
How many times throughout life have
we heard this from our parents or said
it ourselves; yet looking back in the
Bible we see that even Jesus is
adding for the children to come to him.
In our verse today he says suffer little
children, and when taken in this
context it literally means "to put up
with" according to Webster's
dictionary. Jesus is telling us to put up
with the children that are trying to get
to Him... In a sense, "put up" with
them spilling kool-aid in Sunday
school, putting gum on the back of the
seat in the church bus, or starting a
i fight at Vacation Bible School. Help
the children come to Jesus and try
volunteering to teach a Sunday school
class or start a Puppet ministry at your

SJ Summer is the warmest of the four seasons in the United States,
and in the Northern Hemisphere. Summer starts around June 21
and usually lasts until the 22nd or 23rd of September. This is a
warm weather season in the United States, because at this time of
J the year the sun is closest to the Northern Hemisphere of our
planet. The first day of summer coincides with a phenomenon
called the Summer Solstice. A solstice is the longest day of the
".. ,. year in a particular hemisphere, or the day in which we experience
the most sunlight While the Northern Hemisphere experiences
Sm- /' summer in June, in other parts of the world, for instance the
Southern Hemisphere, they experience the beginning of their
winter season The word 'summer' is derived from the Old Norse
S| word, sumar.
During the summer in the United States, kids are on break from
__j school. This is a time that they are able to play summer sports,
swim, and spend time on vacations with their families. Picnics are
popular, as well as certain foods and drinks, like watermelon and
lemonade Dunng the summer many crops, such as peaches,
.plums and strawberries, are ready for harvest. These are just a
few things that make summer so enjoyable.

Receiving blood when I gave

District board votes not to increase TCC tuition


2007-08 budget approved


The Tallahassee Community
College District Board of
Trustees approved a $59.3 mil-
lion budget for the 2007-08 aca-
demic year ensuring the College's
open door admissions policy
stays open.. At the meeting the
Board rescinded their December
2006 vote to increase in-state
tuition by $3 per credit hour
which would have gone into
effect in the Spring 2008 semes-
ter.
"TCC offers the most afford-


able post-secondary education in
the state," said TCC President
Bill Law. "The Board fully sup-
ports Governor Crist's decision to
keep education costs affordable
by not increasing tuition. He
continued, "We anticipate that
our low tuition and excellent
teaching faculty will attract more
students-to TCC."
Not only will the 07-08 budg-
et keep tuition affordable, it also
supports several initiatives' that
will provide opportunities for an


increased focus on student suc-
cess. These include: the contin-
ued support'of comprehensive
learning plans for every student;
enhanced collaborative pre-colle-
giate outreach programs with the
Tri-county school districts; and
the redesign of college develop-
ment curricula, distance learning
classes and syllabi. Additional
support will be given to imple-
ment comprehensive fine arts
programs that meet the cultural
and educational needs of the cam-
pus and the community.
The budget .provides for inno-
vative solutions that strengthen
the region's economy and work-


force competitiveness with
Corporate, Government, Trade,
and Manufacturing Programs.
TCC will supply the workforce
development programs designed
to improve work skills for in-
demand jobs through its IT,
Health, Ecotourism and Non-
Profit Institutes.
"We owe our success to our
superb faculty and our Board
acknowledges our instructors'.
excellence with increased sup-
port," Law said. The College con-
tinues to provide opportunities
for faculty and staff to develop
professionally and to implement
individual growth plans that


address effective teaching and
learning.
To recognize the role that fac-
ulty and staff play in increasing
and sustaining student success,
the 2007-2008 budget also
affords the College the opportuni-
ty to provide faculty and staff a
well-deserved pay increase.
Faculty pay increases will aver-
age 4% and be proportionally dis-
tributed in accordance with the
faculty salary schedule.
Classified Staff will receive a 4%

$1,000). Managerial
Professionals and Administrators
will receive a 2.5% to 7% pay

Dr. Law is confident the budg-
et will advance the role of
Tallahassee Community College
and will build on the long tradi-
tion of excellence that has been
the hallmark of the College.
"The Board of Trustees and I
would like to thank Governor
Crist and our local Legislative
Delegation for their continued.
support. The appropriations allow
TCC to keep the College's pledge
to student success and will allow

FSU freezes enrollment Tallavana Christian School's graduating class


Florida State University
President T.K. Wetherell
announced today that FSU will
freeze enrollment and take
aggressive steps to stabilize its
budget in the face of declining
state revenues, chronic under-
funding of enrollment growth,
the unknown consequences of
tax reform, and a vetoed tuition
increase.
The bottom line: Getting
admitted to FSU just got a lot
tougher.
"We've got a revenue crisis
looming in this state that's going
to affect students today and
tomorrow," Wetherell said. "It
doesn't take a crystal ball to see
that unknown outcomes of the
property tax reform that just
passed yesterday are likely to
have serious effects on higher
education.
"Add to that chronic prob-
lems of declining state revenues
and underfunded enrollment --
not to mention the veto of the 5
percent tuition increase -- and
the future's easy to predict. We're
headed toward a budget crisis
that inevitably will cut access to
public higher education in this
state."
Referring to recent news
reports that K-12 public school
leaders have concerns about the
impact of tax cuts on their teach-
ing mission, Wetherell issued a
reminder that Florida State also
is a public school.
"We, too, are concerned about
cuts. We, too, are concerned


about class size. We are talking
about a serious threat to quality
if we continue to underfund the
universities."
In 2006-07, FSU enrolled
6,328 freshmen of which
approximately 1,000 were
unfunded. "Something has to
give," Wetherell said.
Therefore, Florida State will
freeze enrollment at current lev-
els and apply stringent admis-
sion criteria for spring 2008 for
freshmen and transfer students.
Current students will find
reduced hours for student com-
puting labs and reduced library
hours, as well as increased fees
for some services such as smart
cards and transcripts.
FSU will be cutting journal
subscriptions and memberships
and reviewing all travel. Faculty
will increase their teaching load.
Some maintenance and repairs
will be deferred.
While making these budget
cuts, FSU will take pains to
adhere to certain principles,
Wetherell said.
"We will protect the integrity
of the teaching, research and
service mission of the university
and continue to enhance our
standing as one of the top
research and graduate education
institutions in the nation.
"We will ensure the safety
and security of students, employ-
ees and the campus, and we will
safeguard the financial integrity
of the university."
FSU will not surrender quali-'


ty, he said, but will have'con-
straints.
"We did receive some fund-
ing for our Pathways of
Excellence program, but not
enough to continue on the time-
line we had set in place for
achieving the quality we seek as
a top public, graduate, research
university," he said. "We have
extended it from five to seven
years, and we have slowed the
cluster hiring of faculty from six
clusters to two."
Overall, this underfunding
means sacrificing access,
Wetherell said.
"We just do not have the
money to admit more freshmen
and transfer students in 2007-08
than we did this year, so enroll-
ment will be flat. That's going to
close our doors to a lot of prom-
ising students. Well-qualified
students who we would ordinari-
ly welcome to FSU will receive
rejection letters. They worked
hard; they studied hard; they
served their communities; they
did everything right, but there
still won't be room for them. And
we will all be the worse for it.
"The students who want to
come here deserve to be able to
get just as good an education in
Florida as they could get in other
states, which charge much more.
It's our responsibility to give it to
them. But without the necessary
funding, our universities will fall
behind, and we will have failed
them. We owe it to the citizens of
Florida not to let that happen."
