County gets license for hospital


County Commissioners to pay $275,000 bankruptcy


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
Gadsden County is again in
possession of its license to operate its
hospital. The Agency for Health Care
Administration (AHCA) issued the.
probationary license to Gadsden
Hospital, Inc. last week after months
of meetings.
In a letter to Craig McMillan, CEO
of the Board of Directors of the
Gadsden County, Community Hospital,
Jack Plagge, program administrator for
the AHCA hospital and outpatient
unit, wrote "change or ownership from


Ashford Healthcare Systems, Inc. to
Gadsden Hospital Inc. in accordance
with the Agreement Regarding Change
of Ownership License for Gadsden
Community Hospital and the
Supplemental Agreeement" had been
granted.
The license was part of the lease
agreement with Ashford Healthcare

manage the hospital in 2001. However
when AHCA closed the hospital on
Nov. 14, 2005 Ashford kept the
license. The company subsequently

Strong


Road land


But questions raised

about ability of

infrastructure to

handle growth

by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
The City of Quincy voted Tuesday night to
voluntarily annex 9 parcels of land on Strong Road.
However, questions about whether the city has the
infrastructure capability to handle all of the new
growth, given the commitment to provide services to
Magnolia Forest, and the South Spring development.
Commissioner Derrick Elias attempted to nix the
annexation outright, but his motion died for lack of a
second. This led to discussion from other
commissioners who questioned whether the annexation
of the nine parcels was only setting the stage for a 200-
acre development that would eventually bring 300 new
homes on Strong Road.
"I have been told that our sewer plant is at capacity
and we have other infrastructure issues. We're going
down the road adding developments which we cannot
handle," said Commissioner Andy Gay.
City. Manager Bill Bogan said his staff had
researched the numbers and annexation is something,

Fast Track FCAT puts test prep in express lane


By BRIAN DEKLE
Times staff writer
The Florida Comprehensive
Assessment Test shows no
mercy and takes no prisoners.
The state-mandated exam can
make or break students' shot at
receiving a high school diploma.
Even if a student has good
grades, if he or she misses the
mark on the FCAT, his or her


tassel-turning opportunities lie in
question-
Some students simply aren't
good standardized test takers,
education experts say, but just as
a math dunce can be transformed
into an arithmetic whiz with
practice, those who struggle with
test-taking can .improve by
learning strategies and practicing
mock tests.
This is precisely what the


Gadsden County School District
is doing through a program
called "Fast Track FCAT."
The program has been helping
rising sophomores, juniors,
seniors and even graduates,
hoping to seal the deal with a
diploma, this summer through
four sessions oriented around
either reading, math or science.
As its name implies, the
program seeks "fast" results by


having students review basic
skills, learn various multiple
choice strategies, learn how to
use a reference sheet for
guidance and more, instead of
rigorously going through
already-taught details.
Fast Track also helps because
classes are small, and teachers
can work one-on-one with
students who have specific
learning pitfalls.

About Face students run


businesses, budget money, more


By BRIAN DEKLE
Times staff writer

While many Gadsden County
children are playing video games,
watching television or just being
lazy this summer, some local
students are hard at work running
businesses, developing budgets
and preparing for next year's
school classes.
During two three-week summer
sessions, Operation About Face
students learn academic, life and
work skills in both classroom and
hands-on settings at the Quincy
National Guard Armory, where the
program is housed. The program,
open to students between the ages
of 13 and 17 whose families
receive assistance from the
Department of Children and
Families, is more than just summer
school, however.
It is a reality-based life
simulation of the real world from
budgeting money to running a


Operation About Face students manage simulated businesses,
learn to budget money and develop other important life skills
during the two three-week summer sessions.


business and more. In fact,
participants can make up to $300
in a three-week session as an
incentive to come and actively
engage in material.
"We focus on life skills. It's a
reality-based program. We want to
show (students) all the things their
parents do, and we want them to
experience those things and


understand them," Alvin Price,
About Face site coordinator, said.
About Face students also develop
interpersonal relationship skills as
they work toward common goals
with peers of different ethnicities
and genders.
A computer-based business
simulation program turns young
About Face students into CEOs


and marketeeers. Groups of
students create businesses, manage
and direct their simulated
enterprises, and watch how their
decisions affect profits and losses.
The business simulation becomes
quite competitive, Price said, with
each group hoping to outperform
their peers'. The most successful*
businesses are often rewarded with
gift certificates or other items.
Life skill simulation is perhaps
the most important part of About
Face, Price said. "We talk about
budgeting money. We give them a
set wage and get them on a life,
skill simulation where they're out
on their own, and they pay us by
checks. We make sure they
understand how to keep the check
register, which means they use
their own checking account. They
do meal plans, and they have to
save money so they can get an
apartment, have a means of
transportation, so it's like they're
out on their own planning their


whole week," Price said.
Students also learn about
different types of insurance,
housing arrangements, what it
takes to buy a house and why it's
better to buy as opposed to renting.
They also learn about credit and
why it's important to keep it good
by paying bills on time, etc., Price
said.
To prepare for potential job
opportunities down the road,
students sometimes dress up and
participate in mock interviews in
front of cameras.
"The kids we service are
receiving benefits, and we are
trying to break the welfare cycle
by telling them there are other
options besides having to depend
on the state of Florida (for
money)," Maurice Herring, Florida
About Face program manager,
added.
Besides life skill training and
real-life simulations, About Face
students also get help with


academics through tutoring and
mock exams. For graduation,
students write and read essays
describing their feelings and
knowledge gained from About
Face. Price said he is "amazed" to
hear some students say how much
the program has impacted them,
despite initial reservations.
"I like it (About Face) because it
teaches me a lot, like how to
budget money and live right. It's
especially helpful outside in the
real world," Chanel Unanka, East
Gadsden High School 9th grader,
said.
Lauren Crews, Carter-Parramore
10th grader, added, "It helps me in
school. I'm not that with math, but
this teaches you easy ways to do
math, and I have seen real
improvement in the classroom, as a
result."
About Face graduation is at 12
p.m. Friday at the National Guard
Armory. The event is free and open
to the public.


Sorority sends kids to FAMU band camp


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

Four high students from East
Gadsden High School, who aim
to maybe become part of the
famed Marching 100 of Florida A
& M University, will have their
fees for the 2007 band camp paid.
Footing the bill for four students
is the Tau Theta Omega Chapter
of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority,
Inc.
Monday morning the chapter's
vice president, Tanya Bradwell,
met the students and presented
the check to EGHS band teacher
Randolph Bush for their full
camp tuition.
"This means a lot to the
students. After that one week at
the camp it is evident what they
have learned in terms of
musicianship, the way they
conduct themselves with more
maturity, and in the way the play
the instruments," Bush said.
"This is an opportunity for the
sorority to do something good
and immediate for these young
people. You never know,
something like this could make
the difference in how their lives


will ultimately turn out,"
Bradwell said. In 2008, the
organization will celebrate 100
years of service to the nation and
abroad, Bradwell added.
"We are constantly looking for
ways to help our community. Our
motto is 'service to all mankind'
and that is what we strive to do
everyday. We feel that structured
camps such as the FAMU Band
Camp not only help with their
musical talents, but it also teaches
them discipline and leadership
skills. We're happy to do this."
Bradwell said.
Bush said the Men of Action, a
local civic group, is sponsoring
two students at the camp, Delta
Sigma Theta Sorority is
sponsoring one student and New
Bethel AME Church is
sponsoring their church member,
Johnnie Beamon, III.
The eight students say they are
just happy that people in the
community are supporting them.
Kiyuana Strong, a 17-year-old
rising senior will.experience.her
first band camp. "I've heard about
the hard practices that start at 4
a.m. and at la.m. but I am ready
for it," said the saxophone player


with three years of experience.
Bush reminded Strong and
Seidah Vickers that women have
only been allowed to participate
in the marching band for about
the last 25 year ago. "I was a
member of the band when the
first female students were
admitted. The thought was that
the practices were so strenuous
that women could not take the
pressure. They were proved
wrong," he said, adding, "today
many women have come through
the program."
One of the main things the
camp teaches is discipline.
Donovan Hayes, also a senior and
the EGHS drum major, will be
honing his skills as the leader.
"This is my second year and I'm
really looking forward to it. I
know a little more about what to
expect now," Hayes said.
Vickers, a clarinet player, said
she wants to attend the camp and
one day perform with the world
renown band that has played
numerous events around the
world including the 2006
Superbowl'in Miami with.Prince.

filed backrupcty and listed the
license as part of its assets.
In the agreement to transfer the
license, Ashford agreed to assign,
transfer, and deliver to GHI all of
Ashford's rights, title and interest
to the lease of the premises. Also,
as part of the agreement, Ashford
will transfer and deliver all
building improvements and
additions and fixtures it owns or
has used and located at the
hospital.
The two-track process for
completing the transfer was over
as of June 22, (last Friday) when


GHI became the licensee of the
hospital and the owner of all
building improvements, additions
and fixtures previously owned by
Ashford. Also included is any
personal property, books,
records, patient medical records,
and files contained at the facility
that are not already county-
owned.
In exchange, the Board of
County Commissioners will pay
$275,000 to Ashford's
Bankruptcy Estate.
Also, last week, both the GHI
Board and the Board of County


Commissioners approved the
direction of the negotiation of a
Supplemental Agreement with
AHCA. The agreement was
delivered to AHCA on June 21
and Secretary Agwunobi signed
the agreement that afternoon and
the agency issued the license to
GHI the next morning.
The hospital was issued an
"inactive license" which means
that the it is temporarily unable
to provide services but is
reasonably expected to resume
services within twelve months. In
inactive license presumes that the


provider will be returned to
service within the term of the
license. If that occurs, a
"standard license" will be issued.
A "standard license" is issued to
a provider that is in compliance
with all statutory requirements
and agency rules and expires two
years after the date of issue.
The inactive license is good for
one year, within that time GHI
must return the hospital to full
operation and in compliance with
all AHCA regulations. If the
hospital cannot be returned to
full operation and reopened


within that period, AHCA can
grant an extension for up to an
additional year.
The hospital will remain
subject to AHCA's emergency
suspension order until it is
brought into full compliance and
is ready for the standard license
to be issued.
: ACHA agreed to defer the
obligation to begin paying the
financial obligations to agency
from shortly after the license is
transferred until shortly after the
hospital receives a standard
license.


By August 1, 2007, GHI is to
submit to AHCA a timetable for
physical plant improvements and
for staffing of the hospital.
"This is good news for the
county and for our healthcare.
We want the entire county to
work with us to provide the best
quality healthcare for all of our
citizens," said County Manager
Marlon Bown.
McMillian thanked assistant
county attorney Paul Sexton and
hospital consultant Joe Sharp,
and county for the roles they
played in securing the license.

or break even.
"The numbers don't indicate to me
that this is something I can
recommend to the Board of County
Commission," said Craig
McMillan, CEO of Gadsden
Hospital Inc.
In the proposal, Corey Fleming,
representing TMH predicted that if
the hospital operated a 10 bed
facility with full service, including a
24-hour seven day a week fully
staffed emergency room, the county
could lose more than $3 million
dollars per year.
According to TMH predictions,
unless the hospital is granted the
Critical Access designation, the
county's financial revenue's
earmarked for the hospital will be
gone in five years.
County Manager Marlon Brown
agreed with the Board of Directors'
assessment. "If we do not get
critical access, I will not
recommend to the Board of County
Commissioners open the hospital,"
he said. Evan Dillard, CEO at
TMH said told the board that there
are other options that they will be
happy to research for the Board but
that they had been asked to come
back with a module of how they
would operate the hospital if they
owned the facility.
And, for now, TMH was the only
game in town to' manage the
hospital. That's because within the
past 30 days, the two other
companies that had expressed an
interest in the hospital pulled out.
Just last week, Alliance Group from
Lexington, KY informed Joe
Sharp, the county's hospital
consultant, that they were no longer
interested in operating the facility.
Alliance and TMH were to present


their proposals to the GCH board
Tuesday.
The highlights of the TMH
proposal included:
*24 Hour Emergency Room:
Operated by a board certified
physician that is qualified through
training and experience. Although
trauma patients are mandated to go
to the nearest trauma or tertiary care
facility, the GCH ER will be staffed
and operated to handle all
emergencies.
*24 Hour Radiology Services:
The hospital will have a digital
Radiology room, a 16 slice CT
scanner, and a portable radiology
unit to provide services to inpatients
and outpatients of the community.
This service will be the main
generator of outpatient revenue.
MRI services will be evaluated as
community needs dictates.
*24 Hour Labortory Services: The
hospital will provide an expanded
laboratroy testing capability 24
hours a day. There will also be an
agreement with TMH to provide for
advanced laboratory testing. This
will eliminate the need to purchase
and maintain higher priced
equipment for non-routine testing.
This, along with radiology, will be a
major generator for outpatient
revenue;
*Surgical Services: The hospital
currently has two fully equipped
surgical suites. These suites should
be utilized for outpatient
procedures, not requiring
anesthesiologist, i.e. endoscopy,
ophthalmic prodecures, etc. Local
physicians and specialist from
Tallahassee can be consulted on
potential usage of the surgical
suites. The suites should remain
unused until there is committed


volume for usage of the suites.
*Specialty Clinics: TMH
will work with specialty physicians
to arrange specialty clinics at
Gadsden Community Hospital to
routinely provide specialty services
to local citizens.
*Cardiac Testing
*Rehabilitation Services
*24 Hour Pharmacy Coverage
*Billing services: Gadsden
Community Hospital will manage
billing internally through financial
software similar to the one utilized
prior to te closing. Dairyland
Healthcare Solutions can provide
the user friendly software that will
allow charging, coding, billing of
services provided along with
creating an electronic record
capable of being audited routinely.
*Medical Credentaling
*Laundry Services
*Biomedical Engineering
*Risk Management
*Community Activities
Hospital consultant, Joe Sharp,
said the hospital could offset some
of the expenses by looking at other
options. Big Bend Hospice has
expressed an interest in keeping two
beds at the hospital, which would
help offset the 10 bed minimum.
Also, Sharp said, an out of state
firm that treats spinal cord injuries
would be an avenue because they
would need 10-15 beds year round.
He said he would pursue that
company and report back to the
board.
But, the board was informed that
unless local physicians have enough
confidence in GCH to refer their
patients and unless the community
has confidence that quality services
will be delivered, the opening and
operation of GCH is uncertain


The talented young lady says
that while marching with the
band is a short term goal, her
plan is to ultimately become a
doctor. But Del McCall, 16,
doesn't have other aspirations
right now except suceeding at
band camp and making the band
after he graduates in two years.
"Oh yeah, I'i going to FAMU
and I'm going to make the band,"
the trumpet player said.
"The Marching 100 Summer
Band Camp has been the camp of
choice for thousands of high
school musicians. Ranging from
grades 9 through 12, these young
men and women have shown a
sincere desire to better
themselves as not only


musicians, but as leaders of their
respective band programs. Those
who have come through 'the
Marching 100 Summer Band
camp have gone on to become
section leaders, officers, and
drum majors in the Marching
100," said Dr. Julian White,
FAMU Marching 100 director.
The band camp has
been in existence since 1990 and
includes a variety of bands and
ensembles and will help students
become well-rounded musicians.
While the marching band is the
crown jewel of the camp, there
are also the three symphonic
bands, (Honor, Orange, and.
Green), two jazz bands, a
precussion ensemble, keyboard


and electronic music, and an
ensemble for every instrument.
Camp members are
taught by Marching 100
members. EGHS students have
an edge because Quincy native
Lyndon Douglas, a FAMU senior
and member of the Marching 100
has been working with the
students. Another FAMU student,
Brandon Mitchell of Gadsden.
AL, is completing a summer
intership at EGHS.
At the end of the band
camp, musicians will conclude
their week with a final marching
exhibition at Bragg Memorial
Stadium on the FAMU campus
which is open to the public.

he feels, the city can do
without causing problem.
Elias said that infrastructure is
only part of his concerns, citing
increased police and fire
protection. "I don't think we
have our ducks in a row on this
one," he said.
Bogan told commissioners that
growth in the city is going to
happen and that the city is
already providing services for
the people who live in the urban
service area.
"We're providing services but
we're losing out on the state
revenues because they are in the
county. The annexation fits into
our overall plan to control the
growth. We need to be in control
of what's happening in our
service system," he said.
"I support growth, we cannot
sit back and fold our arms
gentlemen," said Commissioner
Sherrie Taylor. She said the city
has to grow or it will stagnate.
Attorney Joyce Dove, who
represents a potential owner of
one of the 9 .parcels said her
clients needs the annexation so
that they can close the land deal
and begin construction on a
medical center (clinic) for
indigent children.
In other matters,
commissioners were informed
that due to a malfunction in with
either the hand-held meter
reading computers, downloading
the meter information or in the
transmission of information
about 1,000 residents meter's
were misread this month and
they were not charged the true
amount for their usage.
The affected area includes:
Attapulgus Highway north to
include Woodberry and'
Woodward Roads, Holiday
Heights, and parts of State Road
12, East Quincy, to include
Magnolia Forest and homes on
the west side of U.S. Highway
90 East, and Strong Road.
Ann Sherman, Customer
Service Director, said meter
readers will re-read this week
and the adjustments will be in
next month's bill. She said
citizens began calling saying that
their bills were too low.
Also, the commission tabled a
decision to negotiate a provider
for solid waste. Last week,


Waste Management informed the
city that their corporate office
prohibited them from bidding on
the contract to provide services
to Quincy because the city owes
them back fees. The city
requested proposals and two
vendors responded, Waste Pro
and Veolia.
However, a Waste Management
representative was in the
audience and said the company
would be willing to re-negotiate
the current contract but that they
had no interested in submitting a
bid, even if the commission
decided to re-bid for service.
Then commissioners, unwilling
to compromise the bidding


process, asked Bogan to return
with more information on both
companies so that they could
make a decision on a vendor.
Bogan said the new company
could be in place by late October
or early November with no
interruption in service.
Also, city employees were
recognized for their support of
the American Cancer Society's
Relay For Life by Rosa
Robinson. Millie Smith of the
Unted Way of the Big Bend also
recognized employees and staff
for their support.
Both women presented plaques
from their respective
organizations.

Tax relief: The will of the people


For the past few weeks I have listened to
politicians, both elected and the hired hands,
talk about what's going to be cut. How people
will have to decide between social services,
critical services and everything in between.
But I believe they have all forgotten one
thing; The have spoken and they have said
they want property tax relief. Now, whether
you agree with that decision or not, you were
elected to represent the people and it if means
cutting out some of the things that may have
grown accustomed to, so be it.
Just last week in the county commission
meeting, there was some discussion about
extending library hours. Well, if the money
isn't there, don't extend the hours. It must be
realized that, contrary to what some elected
officials may think is good for the people, the
people just may know what's good for them.
If there is less money in the pot, people
must realize that there will be less things to
go around, or something has to be re-
configured. Ask any law abiding taxpayer,
and they will probably be able to rattle off a
list of things that can be cut to will save
money.
I talked to a man who uses our library
system quite often and this is what he said
when I asked him about extending library
hours and parks, both of which seem to be
what's being held up as what citizens are
likely to lose.
"Heck, it it will save me money on my
property taxes, I will make arrangements to
go to the library when it's open. As far as


parks are concerned, they're nice to have but
they aren't a necessity. And, it doesn't scare
me when politicians say if the parks are
closed the kids will turn into criminals. That's
crap! A park that closes at sundown will not
keep a person from stealing or anything else
unlawful if that's what they want to do."
That's what-a law abiding, taxpayer in
Gadsdeit County had to say.
So it seems to me that the citizens have
spoken and they are well aware that cuts will
have to be made and they are ready to take
the consequences.
A few years ago, when the people of the
Great State of Florida decided thay wanted
cuts and voted into office those people'who
heard the majority say they wanted 25
percent of state government cut. Well, about a
year later, a woman called to say that
transportation for her mentally and physically
challenged son had been cut by the
Department of Health and Human Services
and that she had no way toget him to his
appointments.
I asked her how she voted, and sure enough,
she had voted for the folks who made the
cuts. I told her she got what she asked
through casting her ballot. Until that moment,
she did not connect the dots. In her mind, the
cuts were going to come from "someplace
else" certainly not the programs that served
her needs.
I say the people have spoken and.they want
property tax relief, I say, let it be and follow
the will of the people.

When we hunker down to talk, we're all on the same level. by Kesley
Colbert, just a good ole boy that likes to write.


She picked our best one!


Lisa Marie Flatt.
Is that not one of the all time great names! It
makes me wish I had had a daughter. 'Course,
she changed it this past week-end. She married
Michael Todd Berry. I wasn't going to go. I'm
really busy with work, I don't travel as well as I
once did and there was a golf tournament AND
a NASCAR race on t.v. And let me tell you,
Tennessee is an extra long way to go just for an
acappella rendition of the Lord's Prayer and a
couple of "I Do's"!
Cathy paused somewhere between her
wedding present buying, getting her hair
frosted, picking out the appropriate shoes,
smearing on that wrinkle free repellent and all
the "making plans" calls to kinfolks scattered
across four states to explain to me exactly why
I was going! And how much fun I was going to
have! Silly me. I just had-a little mental
lapse....
Michael Todd is more like a nephew than the
oldest son of Cathy's first cousin. He came
down and spent a couple of weeks with us
when he was in junior high. He said "yes
ma'am" and"'no ma'am" and he didn't cause
no trouble. I kinda thought he was way above
the norm for Cathy's family. He had such a
great smile and he could talk fishing, football
and the Atlanta Braves. That made him alright
in my book. And he's no dummy! He asked for
seconds on Cathy's asparagus casserole. Well,
as you can quite imagine, that's all it took!
She's been talking about Michael Todd near
'bout non stop for the last ten years.
Lyn, Michael's mother, grew up about the
distance from home plate to the pitcher's
mound from Cathy. Their grandparents lived in
the next house up. And Uncle Bud was just
around the comer. None of the Parker family
was shy about birthing them babies in the
1950's. I tried to count'em once but Jo Blair
and Jesse eat like two people and Genia talks
more than Hannity and Colmes combined. It
gets a little confusing....and to say it is a close
knit family would be the understatement on the
century ...
I think all that close together living and the
Sunday morning inspections up at Daddy
Brown's house warped the whole group! Cathy
wouldn't change a diaper without calling one
of her sisters. They get together about a
hundred times a year. They congregate every
Thanksgiving, Christmas, Easter, Arbor Day,
summer solstice, the first Monday after the
second Tuesday in May....
They flock to weddings like a June bug to
honey! The "throwback" restaurant Lyn picked
for the rehearsal dinner was bursting at the
seams. Lyn should have known better than to
invite the whole group to this thing! I kept an
eye on Lisa Marie. I was hoping she was so
locked in on Michael that she wouldn't notice
the way Geneen, Foley and Little Jane were
going after that fried chicken!
Lisa's mother once sang back-up for Mel
Tillis. And her father was a football coach.
Good folks you could tell. They would be way
too nice to comment on any shenanigans from


the groom's family the night before the
wedding. Although I did see Coach Flatt shake
his head when Jo Blair sat the mashed potato
bowl in front of her and went to attacking that
dish like an inside linebacker ripping into the
off-tackle hole!
I figured this family deserved a fair warming. I
waited till most everyone had finished their
pecan pie (or pies in the case of a couple of
them), the band had done the obligatory
rendition of Rocky Top and the conversation
had leveled down to a dull roar. I cleared my
throat, stood up and to break the ice made an
off hand remark about the cream corn, which
was fixed exactly right. "I want to know who
cooked the com. I would like to go home with
you."
And then I got down to business, "Lisa, if
you think you are only marrying Michael
Todd, you are in for quite a shock. You get the
whole family! Whether you want them or not!
I moved to Florida---they still found me! They
will mind your business, help you Christmas
shop, eat your meatloaf and baked beans, use
your towels....." I told her about the club. Me,
Leonard, Richard, Steve, D'Lon, Herb, Marc,
Gayle, Stan, Karen and Alan had married into
the Parker family. We formed a support group
years ago. Lisa was now "one of us". We have
therapy sessions. We call ourselves Parker
Family Anonymous. Marc is our president. He
married Mary Dudley and thus carries an extra
burden....
"We are here to help you."
Lisa smiled through it all. Love will do that to
you. She was so pretty and so innocent.
One of Lisa's high school friends got up and
talked about their trip to Los Angles. And
another one reminded Lisa that she was the
only girl in the history of the school to be
thrown out of a flag football game for
unnecessary roughness! I looked at her with a
new appreciation.....and maybe she wasn't so
innocent! We could use her in the club.
After the dinner and the festivities ended
three ladies that I had never seen in my life
came up to me and told me they cooked the
cream corn.
The wedding was beautiful and flawless. It
will be talked about in the Parker family for
years to come. And the reception had plenty of
food. This, naturally, brought a sigh of relief to
the herd---and another chance to "fill up" at
someone else's expense.
Everything was going great until the
professional photographer tried to line up the
Parker's for a group picture. The steps weren't
high enough. The room wasn't big enough.
And he didn't have a wide angle lens! And,
bless his heart, he made a cardinal mistake by
trying to get them to be quiet!
I was still laughing afterwards as I made my
way toward the parking lot. A lady jumped out
of the bushes, grabbed me by the arm and
declared, "I made the cream com."
You know, Lisa's family might have a few
characters of their own.....
Respectfully, Kes


When the phone at the office rang
Monday I answered.
"Gadsden County Times."
"Is Leslie there?" a male voice queried.
"Yes this is Leslie."
"Leslie, it's Mike Hunter."
"How's your Dad?"
There was a pause.
"Not too good. He'd like to see you."
I had the pleasure and privilege of
meeting Tony Hunter after running into
Mike.and his wife at a convenience store
in Gretna this spring.
I had long wanted to interview Tony
about his work as a nuisance alligator
trapper for the Florida Wildlife
Conservation Commission. I relayed that
information to Mike, who had recently
taken over the job.
His 54-year-old dad was battling cancer
- for the third time in two years and
was no longer able to trap the alligators
he had come to know and respect.
The first time I met him he was sitting
in a recliner in his Midway home,
recounting tales from the reptilian world
and his life, gracious and grateful despite
his recent diagnosis of liver cancer.
He had a heart attack in 2005, and was
diagnosed with lung cancer in 2006. He
beat that, but doctors found three tumors
on his brain and one on his adrenal gland
some months after; that, too, he beat.
When he was diagnosed with liver
cancer, doctors told him he had two to 12
months to live.
"The last thing I'll do is give up, so
they can kiss my butt," he said the first
day I was at his house. "When I get in
my chemo room, I make sure everybody
laughs at least once; so they don't sit
around and stew on it."
When I visited Monday, his wife Anna
was at his side, as always, and friends
and family surrounded him.
He's lost some weight, but not his
sense of humor.

He gave me a copy of the manuscript.
he's been working on for several years -
an autobiography with the unspoken
reminder that it was a gift, not a job.
The man is not overly fond of editors,
and I cannot IMAGINE why. Personally,
I find endearing our tendency to pick
apart every heartfelt paragraph of
someone else's work.
But you can add "writer" to Tony's list
of job descriptions. His writing is
engaging and conversational. It carries
the reader through a number of
adventures. Stories of life and love and
loss, of human kindness and compassion
with a few alligator trapping experiences
embroidered throughout.
I discovered in reading the manuscript
he's a fan of orchids, and am thinking I
have a sunroom that would treat them
favorably.
I'll ask him if I get a chance.
But if he moves on to the next realm
instead of hanging out here, I'll go ahead
and give orchid growing my best shot.
I'll buy a few planters, pot a few
orchids.
Then I'll sit in my :unroom. marvel at
an orchid's and a man's mixture of
fragility and fortitude and play Gnarls.

I'm well on my way/I'm almost
everything/And this is my day/Make me
wanna sing:
I'm free, look at me/And all and
everything I'm allowed to see/Free, come
and see/Na na na na na na na.
Shapeless, formless I can harvest
enormous/I've born this, I've worn
this/No never what the norm is
Come here it's fearless/Contrast in
color/Wisdom's a woman/Listen. and
love her:
I'm free, look at me/Freedom in high
fidelity/Free, come and see/Na na na na

Dear Editor

If I correctly interpreted the information I requested
from the Clerk's Office, at December 31, 2004 the
Gadsden County Board of County Commissioners
employed 261 employees. At December 31, 2006 they
employed 287. That is an increase of 26 positions in 2
years. There may be more in 2007. The top 15 of those
employees get salaries, not including benefits, totaling
$918,135.00. This does not include raises the existing
administrative staff may have gotten, such as the County
Manager's position. These are new hires. Wonder how
many of them were people living within the county.
There are only about 50, 000 people that live in Gadsden
County. Does this increase in spending and
administrative positions seem excessive? Have the long
time employees of the county been getting adequate raises?
Have all the Departments in the county, like the County
Clerk's Office, Property Appraiser's and Tax Collector's
Offices gotten to hire new employees? Of the top 15 new
hires the departments and amounts follow, not including
benefits: The Office of Management and Budget got at
least 4 of the new hires at $39,473, $50,000, $54,808 and
$75,200, totaling $219,481; the Office of Growth
.Management $43,992 and $55,962, totaling $99,954; the
Office of Budget and Management $45,000 and $54,000,
totaling $99,000; Urgent Care $45,760, $83,200,
$83,200 and $95,200 totaling $307,360; Recycling
$60,000; Public Relations $63,280; Grants $69,060. I
wonder if the Board of County Commissioners requires its
employees to keep 15 minute day timers so that they know
what their employees are doing for 8 hours a day. For
Democrats, the Board of County Commissioners seems to
have a Republican philosophy about increasing
administrative positions and pay. I wonder if support of
the poor in this county has grown at the same rate.

Put the

'Independence'

back in

Independence

Day

By Michael S. Berliner
America's cities and towns will
soon fill with parades, fireworks and
barbecues, in celebration of the
Fourth of July, the 231st birthday of
America. But one hopes that the
speeches will contain fewer
bromides and more attention to
exactly what is being celebrated.
The Fourth of July is Independence
Day, but America's leaders and
intellectuals have been trying to
move us further and further away
from the meaning of Independence
Day, away from the philosophy that
created this country.
What we hear from politicians,
intellectuals, and the media is that
independence is pass, that we've
reached a new age of
"interdependence." We hear
demands for mandatory
"volunteering" to serve others, for
sacrifice to the nation. We hear
demands from trust-busters that
successful companies be punished
for being "greedy" and not serving
society. But this is not the message
of America. It is the direct opposite
of why America became a beacon of
hope for the truly oppressed
throughout the world. They have
come here to escape poverty and
dictatorship; they have come here to
live their own lives, where they
aren't owned by the state, the
community, or the tribe.
"Independence Day" is a critically
important title. It signifies the
fundamental meaning of this nation,
not just of the holiday. The
American Revolution remains
unique in human history: a
revolution--and a nation--founded
on a moral principle, the principle of
individual rights. Jefferson at
Philadelphia, and Washington at
Valley Forge, pledged their "lives,
fortunes, and sacred honor." For
\ hiat'Not'fit r nmeie -;ep.ration from
England, not--like most rebels--for
the "heedon"i to sei up their own
tyranny. In fact, Britain's tyranny
over the colonists was mild
compared to what most current
governments do to their citizens.
Jefferson and Washington fought a
war for the principle of
independence, meaning the moral
right of an individual to live his own
life as he sees fit. Independence was
proclaimed in the Declaration of
Independence as the rights to "life,
liberty, and the pursuit of
happiness." What are these rights?
The right to life means that every
individual has a right to his own
independent life, that one's life
belongs to oneself, not to others to
use as they see fit.
The right to liberty means the right
to freedom of action, to act on one's
own judgment, the right not to have
a gun pointed at one's head and be
forced to do what someone else
commands. And the right to the
pursuit of happiness means that an
individual may properly pursue his
own happiness, e.g., his own career,
friends, hobbies, and not exist as a
mere tool to serve the goals of
others. The Founding Fathers did
not proclaim a right to the
attainment of happiness, knowing
full well that such a policy would
carry with it the obligation of others
to make one happy and result in the
enslavement of all to all. The
Declaration of Independence was a
declaration against servitude, not
just servitude to the Crown but
servitude to anyone. (That some
signers still owned slaves does not
negate the fact that they established
the philosophy that doomed
slavery.) Political independence is
not a primary. It rests on a more
fundamental type of independence:
the independence of the human
mind. It is the ability of a human
being to think for himself and guide
his own life that makes political
independence possible and
necessary. The government as
envisaged by the Founding Fathers
existed to protect the freedom to
think and to act on one's thinking. If
human beings were unable to
reason, to think for themselves, there
would be no autonomy or
independence for a government to
protect. It is this independence that
defines the American Revolution
and the American spirit.
To the Founding Fathers, there
was no authority higher than the
individual mind, not King George,


i,
AMC.

Midway bust nets two


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

Neighbors fed up with what
they thought was drug activity
at a residence on Imani Circle
in Midway complained to the
Gadsden County Sheriff's
Office. Last week, the GCSO
made a controlled buy of pow-
der cocaine at the home and
minutes later moved in to make
two arrests.
Arrested were Rudon
Howard, 44, and Vera Mae
Childs, 55 inside of the home.
When deputies entered the resi-
dence, the pair was in the
process of packaging the
cocaine in a- rear bedroom.
Inside, investigators found sev-


eral small

cocaine that
had already ..
been pack-
aged for
sale, a bag or
marijuana, a
plate contain- Howard
ing cocaine and drug parapher-
nalia that was being used for
the process.
Howard and Childs have
been charged with sale of
cocaine within 1,000 feet of a
church, possession of cocaine
with intent to distribute, pos-
session of drug paraphernalia
and maintaining a house where
drugs are sold or stored.
"This is just two of more


arrests to
come in ref-
erence to this
residence.
We will be
targeting the
supplier of h
this resi-
dence who is Childs
well known to law enforcement
in this area," said Lt. Jim
Corder of the GCSO.
"The citizens of Midway are
having new development and
growth in this area and want to
see the old ways abolished. We
will continue to fight drugs
throughout Gadsden County
with the assistance of the citi-
zens," said Sheriff Morris
Young.

1-10 traffic stop leads to meth lab arrest


Sby ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

Gadsden County deputies
arrested a Lucedale, MS couple
traveling on Interstate 10 early
friday morning.
According to a report
released by the Gadsden County
Sheriffs Office, deputies were
on traffic patrol when a west-
0bound truck was clocked at 87
miles per hour passed them near
::tate Road 267 around 12:45


a.m. As
deputies fol-
lowed the -
vehicle, they
noticed that
the driver
and the pas-
s e n g e r
changed Pitts
seats. The
original driver Daniel Pitts, 32,
was found to be driving with a
suspended Mississippi license
when stopped. The passenger in


the truck, 35-year-old Emma J.
Brannan, was also detained at
the scene.
After Pitts was arrested and
taken into custody, deputies then
decided to search the truck after
they noticed several batteries
inside the truck as well as sever-
al mason jars.
"The jars gave off a distinct
chemical odor," according to the
report.
Deputy J. Wilkerson and Sgt.
B. Mitchell continued to search


the truck and
"began to
notice sever-
al other .
chemicals
that are pre-
cursors for a
methamphet-
amine labo- Brannen
ratory inside
the rear bed of the truck."
The GCSO vice and narcotics
unit determined that the lab had.
not been activated and were able


to safely remove the chemicals
to a safe place for disposal.
Pitts was charged with one
count of possession of precur-
sors, one count of methampheta-
mine, one count of possession of
drug paraphernalia, driving
while license suspended or
revoked, and a ticket for travel-
ing 87 miles per hour in a 70
mile per hour zone. He remains
in the county jail on $50,000
bond.
Brannan was charged with


possession of a controlled sub-
stance for possession of Xanax.
She has been released.
"Our deputies have been pro-
vided training in clandestine labs
due to the recent increase of labs
and their operations in this area.
This was a great job by Dep.
Wilkerson and Sgt. Mitchell for
recognizing the elements of a
methamphetamine lab and tak-
ing the necessary safety precau-
tions," said Sheriff Morris.

Police seek mailbox vandals


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
Clinton J. Jordan, the
Greensboro man found guilty two
weeks ago of first-degree murder
in the death of Antonio Ross was
sentenced last week to 30 years in
the Department of Corrections.
The jury found Clinton guilty
of first-degree premediated mur-
der in the March 29, 2005 killing
of Ross.
Under Florida law the judge
had little leeway in sentencing.
However, the maximum he
received could have been life in
prison. As it is, Jordan will be well


. in his fifties before he is released.
On tape, Jordan admitted to
killing Ross on a commonly used
"path" in Gretna between Canty
lane and Thomas Avenue, after he


said he managed to wrestle a
handgun away from Ross and shot
him.
The jury took less than three
hours to find Jordan guilty.

Going to the mailbox each
day was, for most people who
live in the Hardaway
Community west of Quincy, a
Pleasant walk to the street. For
most people the few hundred
yards gave them time to appre-
ciate birds chirpping or their
-well manicured yards.
- That has come to an end for
many homeowners. "Over the
last three months our mail
boxes have been vandalized
Three times," said one woman
:who asked not to be identified
for fear of relatiation. Just last
kSunday night, mail boxes up
and down the Hardaway Road
,were beaten on, banged up, and
,several were snatched off the
Poles.
SThe offenses appeared ran-
dom because for every two or
'three vandalized, one was left
standing and untouched.
"This has got the be inten-
tional. I don't know if it's kids
:who think it is a harmless prank
:or if it's people who are just
minean spirited. Either way, it's
:very disturbing," the woman
said.
Sunday night, a decorative
,sign that cost the family hun-
dreds of dollars was destroyed
:with what appeared to be an ax.
:The sign was especially made
'years ago for the family and
'was a source of pride.
S The kids and maybe even
their parents might think these
;are harmless pranks, but
deputies and investigators with
the Gadsden County Sheriffs
;Department aren't laughing.
"This is blatant destruction
Sof property and people have the
;right not to have their property
destroyed, no matter the

Sheriff Morris Young.
It is also a federal crime to
tamper with mail boxes.

Teachers learn to fuse 'reading, writing, 'rithmetic' with technology


By BRIAN DEKLE
Times staff writer

If X-Boxes and Playstations
could teach young students math
and science, and if iPods trans-
mittedJreading and writing skills
through earbuds into adolescent
brains, young gamers and mp3
junkies would likely be on their
way to Rhodes Scholar status.
While such may seem far-
fetched, fusing familiar, enter-
taining home technology with
classroom learning was precise-
ly the topic of a Gadsden County
Schools technology conference
last week.
Scores of Gadsden County
teachers explored exciting, cut-
ting-edge educational software
and technology last week that
will hopefully, conference
organizers say, be used in local
classrooms soon.
Advanced technology, skill-
fully used in the classroom may


help students feel a little more at
home, Dr. Sonja. Bridges,
Gadsden County Schools direc-
tor of instructional media and
technology, said.
"All kids learn differently.
Just about every child has a
computer or some type of tech-
nology at home. But when they
get to school, the first thing the
teacher wants to do is just talk to
them all day. So we're trying to
reach them in the way they are
accustomed to now," she said.
Most kids now play advanced
video games, listen to music
with iPods or other mp3 players,
use cellular phones, computers
and other cutting-edge technolo-
gy for entertainment at home or
in social situations, Bridges said.
She admits even video games
require a lot of critical thinking
skills to move from one level to
the next, and she adds if teachers
employ this type of approach a
more familiar one to youngsters


- in their teaching, it will help
boost student achievement.
"We're trying to give teach-
ers the opportunity to do that so
they can increase achievement,
because students will learn if
you teach the mission in a differ-
ent way sometimes, instead of
just literally talking to them,"
Bridges said. "We're just trying
to show (teachers) how to use
technology as a tool to increase
student achievement."
Teachers are not only learn-
ing to use technology to make
classroom instruction more rele-
vant to a younger generation,
they are also working to master
technology themselves.
The Gadsden County School
District has a substantial amount
of cutting edge software, com-
puters, hi-tech equipment and
other technology to aid in class-
room learning, but some of it sits
unused in classrooms because
teachers don't know how to use


it.
That has to change, Bridges
said. Before placing
Smartboards (touch sensitive,
interactive presentation boards),
iMovie (powerful movie edit-
ing/producing software) and
other technology in classrooms,
teachers must first learn to use
them and explain how they'll
use them to increase student
achievement, Bridges said.
"We've been so accustomed
to putting technology in the
classroom without proper train-
ing. However, now we're going
to start putting the training
before the technology," she said.
"(Teachers) are going to have
to come to training and tell us
how they're going to use these
things (technology) to increase
student achievement, instead of
us just giving them stuff to sit in
a corer. These things are tools
to be used."
Outside of information given


by session leaders, teachers
learned from each other at last
week's conference, Bridges said.
Just as students have differ-
ent learning styles, teachers
devise and utilize their own sig-
nature teaching strategies, as
well. The technology conference
drew teachers from across the
district, grade levels and sub-
jects.
The cornucopia of instructors
worked together in groups to
develop technology-based les-
son plans, sharing ideas and
experiences all the while.
"You had teachers from dif-
ferent schools and grade levels
working on a project together,
which made it more powerful.
Because, for instance, I may
have limited knowledge in one
area and another may have
extensive knowledge on the sub-
ject," Bridges said.
Bridges said the conference
was successful overall and well


received. More teachers wanted
to sign up than there was avail-
able. space, and Bridges said
teachers "called constantly"
wanting to take part.
Technology experts from a
variety of school districts and
other institutions led training
sessions, which ranged from
specific technology training to
lessons on how to better teach
traditional academics by fusing
technology into lessons.
Conference-goers signed up
to attend sessions most appeil-
ing to them, instead of taking
part in all or random sessions.
Other smaller technology
training workshops are held
throughout the school year, but
the summer session is by far the
largest and farthest reaching.
"We hope teachers are learn-
ing a lot; we hope they're going
to take it back to their class-
rooms and use it with their stf-
dents," Bridges said.


Havana approves noise ordinance


By LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor

In what Mayor Pro Tern
Vernell Ross termed "one of the
shortest meetings on record,"
Havana Town Council members
conducted business, heard pre-
sentations and discussed several
agenda items before adjourning
20 minutes after they began.
Council members unani-
mously approved on its final
reading an ordinance regulating
noise within the town:
The ordinance prohibits the
creation of loud or unnecessary
noise and outlines exceptions,
enforcement and penalties.
Sound level zones range in
limit and local. For* example,
where the property line of a res-
idential zone meets the property


line of a commercial zone, the
permissible sound level limit
will be 75 between the hours of
8 a.m. and 10 p.m. and 70
between 10 p.m. and 8 a.m.
Motorcycles, amplifiers, ani-
mals, TVs, domestic power
tools, air conditioners and street
sales offered by shouting or out-
cry are all on the list of regula-
tion.
Council members also
approved the use of the Town
Park's electricity by non-profit
organizations.
"Certainly we would build
good will if we decided to waive
those fees," Town Manager
Howard McKinnon said. "And
the cost of use is low for Relay
for Life much less than the
minimum.
Council member Don


Vickers said he's not particular-
ly happy with paying the $50 to
turn the park's lights on.
"Kiwanis puts up $50 to turn
it on and it goes to the Town of
Havana," he said. "If they are
going to charge us, we'll quit
doing it. As long as they don't
charge us, I'm plumb happy
with it."
The motion to waive the fee
for non-profits was approved
unanimously.
The meeting kicked off on a
positive note, with Mayor T.J.
Davis accepting safety awards
on behalf of the town from
CH2MHILL OMI project man-
ager Terry Personal. The two
awards were given by the
Florida Water Pollution Control
Operators Association and the
Florida Water Environment


Association.
Presnal gave an annual report
for the year 2005-2006 during
which the town's lift station was
completely rebuilt.
"New pumps, new controls -
it has been 100 percent reliable,"
he said. "We were having down
time on that lift station almost
every month."
Several other highlights of
the year, Presnal said, were the
repairs completed on a third
rotating biological contactor
blower, bring the total to three
repaired, and the contributions
the company made to the local
economy by using local vendors
where possible.
Each Florida Department of
Environmental Protection
inspection noted zero deficien-
cies, he.added, and the company

contributed financially and
physically to town functions.
The partnership between the
Town of Havana and CH2M

2003 for an initial period of


three years.
The company assumed
responsibility of the town's
wastewater treatment facility,
lift stations and effluent disposal
sprayfields.


Midway votes for pay raises for employees


By LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor

Tuesday's specially-called
Midway City Council meeting
went smoothly, with council
members approving pay increas-
es for eligible city employees.
Interim City Manager Angela
Poole said the increases take
effect after new hires complete a
60-day probation period those
approved Tuesday night will see
the raise in during the next pay
period.
"They don't make full pay
until their probation is met," she
said.
Councilman Charles Willis
asked whether Poole had con-
tacted municipalities in areas of
comparable demographic and
socioeconomic makeup as

"She presented with symptoms -
fever, coughing and was tested
and sent to an outside facility,"
Plessinger said. "She is now back at
the facility in isolation and taking
her medicine."
Plessinger said several inmates
and staff members have already
been tested for the disease, and
officials are still investigating how
many people may have been
exposed to the disease.
According to the Centers for
Disease Control and Prevention's
Division of Tuberculosis
-Elimination website, "TB is a
disease caused by germs that are
spread from person to person
through the air. TB usually affects
the lungs, but it can also affect other
parts of the body, such as the brain,
the kidneys, or the spine.
Symptoms include feelings of
sickness or weakness, weight loss,
fever, and night sweats. The
symptoms of TB disease of the
lungs also include coughing, chest
pain and the coughing up of blood.
The disease is airborne and is
spread when a person with TB
disease\ of the lungs or throat
coughs, sneezes, speaks, or sings.
These germs can stay in the air for
several hours, depending on the
environment. Persons who breathe
in the air containing these TB
germs can become infected; this is
called latent TB infection."


Midway in recommending the
increases.
"Do you have a survey from
other areas detailing what ...
park superintendents make
there?" he, asked.
Poole said she hadn't but was
confident the $1 to $2 increases
in hourly rates were reasonable.
"I haven't done a survey of
what public works departments
are making. I know when they
were hired, we felt like that was
in line with what other depart-
ments are making," she said.
"We need to do some kind of
survey to find out what other
areas are paying today," Willis
said. "That would help give city
council something to go by."
Council members approved
each pay raise individually, with
Public Works Department
employee Alonzo Brown receiv-


ing a $1,000 annual increase, or
$1 more an hour, from $9.13 to
$10.13 hourly.
Public Works employee
Darrell Green, who has been
with the city since 1992, was
given a $1 hourly increase, from
$10.33 an hour to $11.33
Permit technician Deanna
Green also got a $1,000 annual
increase, taking her hourly 'rate
to $12.19, and Public Works
employee Kahill Green also got
a $1,000 annual increase, with
his hourly rated moving to
$9.13.
Sonnee Thompson, who has
served as park superintendent
for six months but also trained
and worked as assistant to the
city manager, saw her pay rate
set at $12.98 per hour.

FSU LOOKING FOR PITCHERS
With the loss of Port St. Joe left-
hander, Trais Burge to transfer
Monday FSU has lost 7 pitchers to
either graduation or transfer since the
end of the season. There is the possi-
bility of two more pitchers signing pro
contracts since juniors Ryan Strass and
Danny Rosen have been drafted.
If Strass and Rosen go, look for the
FSU coaching staff to start scrambling.
They may attempt to sign some Jumor
College hurlers that have completed
just one year at that level.

WILL STERIOD TESTING
WORK?
To appease the legislature the


FHSAA is trying to come up with a ste-
liod testing program for the state's high
school athletes. This like most pro-
grams the legislature proposes is
underfunded.
The $100.000 they appropriated
will only test about 667 athletes at best.
Good buddy, Jim Lamar, had a great
article about the steroid program his
Tuesday column in the Democrat.
As Jim wrote, education would be
the best way to spend the money. The
trouble is if it did seem to work, the
legislature would cut it out like they
did the anti-tobacco program. That
program was working too well for the
bunch that meets in Tallahassee and
cares so much about youth. By the
way, there was a constitutional amend-
ment to restore money to the.anti-
tobacco program.
That amendment seems to be being
ignored. What's the use to have an
amendment process when it can be
ignored?

cussed pay for contractual
employees, and decided to put the
item on the July 12 agenda.
They discussed the position of
city manager first, with Poole
offering several options: Blending
the roles and pay of a city manag-
er and finance director for a rate of
$38 per hour or contracting with
two different people for the jobs at
a rate of $30 hourly each.
"(The $38 rate) would save
about $9,000 from the budget,"
she said.
Asked by Councilman James
Hinson why the issue was being
discussed that particular night,
Poole said she currently has no
contract and needs to establish a
rate so she can bill for her services.
"Since we set a rate of $30 for
our old city manager I think that's
what we ought to stick to," Hinson
said.
"For our purposes right now,
the idea is that we have sort of a
blended position and a blended
rate," Poole said.
Community Services Director
Roosevelt Morris proposed con-
tinuing his duties as a full-time city
employee at the rate of $30 per
hour for the 40-hour week and
reading plan reviews after hours at
a rate of $100 per hour.
"Homer Uten, who resigned,


was charging $165 for plan
reviews," he said.
Morris, currently a contract
employee, said he is currently
serving as building official, build-
ing inspector for 1- and 2-family
dwellings, commercial inspector,
planning and zoning director, code
enforcement officer and fire safety
officer.
."Somebody has to do these
things these are the things that
keep my department running," he
said.
Morris said he conducts build-
ing inspections daily, plan reviews
every other day, code enforcement
when he is notified of a violation.


Morris proposed hiring a build-
ing inspector at a rate of $17 per
hour who would also serve as a
code enforcement officer.
"We really do need somebody
who can do building inspections
so that Roosevelt can do plan
reviews for $35 an hour instead of
$100 an hour," Poole said.
At the $30 rate, Morris would
earn around $70,000 plus taxes
and benefits which would bring
his total package to $83,000-
$85,000.
"It's going to get where no mat- .
ter how much we pay him these
are things no one person can do,"
Poole said.

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


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


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

heart'


Rick Ott and Nelle McCall, left, owners of From the Heart Recording Studio in Sopchoppy, take a break with sound designer Calvin
Jones. The couple is hosting a CD release party for the Franklin County band One of Many June 30 at Hamaknockers Oasis in
Ochlockonee Bay. (Photo submitted)


Quincy native making splash in the music, recording world


By LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor
When Nelle McCall left
Quincy at 17, her plans were to
finish high school while living
with her sister in Tallahassee
and go on to horticulture
school.
She did that. The day after she
graduated from Lively
Technical Center, she boarded a
cargo boat headed for Louisiana
and worked as a deck hand for
three years.
"A friend of mine was a deck
hand, so the day after I finished
horticulture school in
Tallahassee I ended up on a boat
in Louisiana," she said. "I did
that sort of stuff quite often,
things of an impulsive nature,
but you do get older and have
responsibilities a house, a


dog, grandchildren."
She may be less impulsive
these days,,ifLonly slightly, but
she's busy as ever.
Along with co-owning From
the Heart Recording Studio in
Sopchoppy with her husband,
Rick Ott, she manages several
bands. The two also have an
independent record label and a
publishing company through the
American Society of
Composers, Authors and
Publishers.
And they recorded, mixed,
mastered and produced a CD by
Franklin County band One of
Many under their record label.
They have planned an all-day
CD release party for the band
June 30 at Hamaknockers Oasis
in Ochlocknee Bay, 460 Coastal
Highway (Highway 98) during
which One of Many will


perform songs from its new CD,
"Ride With Me," in the early
evening. Special guests Pepper
Drive Band and Rick Ott and
the Rhythm Ramblers will kick
off the day at 3 p.m.
Event supporter, Abate of
Florida, Inc. Big Bend Chapter
has organized a poker run that
day starting at 11 a.m. at
Hamaknockers Oasis.
For McCall and Ott, getting
into the music business was a
natural. Ott, who grew up in
Tallahassee, was influenced by
his father's band, Hugh Lee Ott
and the Rhythm Amblers.
Accordingly, the name of his
band is Rick Ott and the
Rhythm Amblers.
McCall had always loved
music. Raised in the house that
still sits in the "S" curve of
King Street in Quincy easily


visible to those traveling east
toward Havana she lived in
Sa% dust for a couple of years in
the '70s and in Wetumpka for
several years in the '90s before
moving to Sopchoppy after her
mother died in 1993. Her aunt,
Esther McCall, still lives in
Quincy as do several other
relatives.
"After my mother passed
away, I wanted a river cabin,"
she said. "I looked and looked,
and I happened to run into Ed
Rude, who is also from Quincy.
He said, 'I've got just the one
you want.' And he was right it
was the one I wanted."
The couple discovered the
Martha Syfrett Revell Rooming
House in Sopchoppy several
years later. The house, built in
1923, had been abandoned for
25 years. The two began


remodeling the house in 2003
with the help of volunteers and
earned a Tallahassee-Leon
County Historical Society
Award of Merit for a
Rehabilitation Project of
Regional Impact in 2005.
"The renovation was such a
community effort," she said. "It
was all volunteer work. We'd
walk in the building and we'd
find cash in envelopes there
was a lot of community
support.".
One of the things McCall likes
about Sopchoppy, she said, is its
proximity to public land much
like Gadsden County and the
friendly, slow pace of life there.
"I have fond memories of
growing up in Quincy," she
said. "I grew up in the woods -
I've done the cities take me to
the country."

verse ofthe weeie:
O house of Israel, cannot I do with you as this potter? Saith the Lord. Behold, as the clay
is in the potter's hand, so are ye in mine hand, O house of Israel.
Jeremiah 18:6 (KJV)
Ie's stil Working on Me.
Have you ever heard that old
Sunday school song? In our verse
the Lord told Jeremiah to go visit the
potter's house, see the work, and
hear the word of the Lord. In the
process of making a vessel the clay s
became marred or unfit for use, in
the hands of the potter. The potter
didn't just throw the clay away; he
just started over to make the vessel
new. Jesus is just like that potter.
When we mess up or do something
wrong; no matter how perfect we
may look on the outside, he knows
our faults and flaws and takes us off
the wheel to start over. Aren't you
glad the master potter just doesn't
throw away His clay? I'm glad Jesus
sees what we can be and not just
give up when are marred.

Second Elizabeth

"Let everyone despise your
youth, but be an example to the
believers in word, in conduct, in
love, in spirit, in faith, in purity."
1 Timothy 4:12
I would be true, for there are
those who trust me;
I would be pure, for there are
those who care.
I would be strong, for there is
much to suffer;
I would be brave, for there is
much to dare.
The Second Elizabeth
Missionary Baptist Church
Deaconess and Home Mission
Ministry will host a "Love
Program" for the Rev. James and
Sister Debra Russell.
The Rev. James Russell is an
Associate Minister, and Bible
Study Instructor at Second
Elizabeth Missionary Baptist
Church who has been stricken
with illnesses that prevent him
from attending worship service;
Sister Debra Russell is a mem-


ber of the Deaconess Ministry,
the Home Mission Ministry,
Women Ministry Instructor, and
Assistant Sunday School
Superintendent. Both are faith-
ful and diligent members of
Second Elizabeth Missionary
Baptist Church who have devot-
ed an abundance of time and
energy into spreading the word
of the risen Savior. The
Russell's moved to this area in
1999 and have proven to be
great spiritual examples to their
many friends and loved oles,'
their mission is to lead the
unsaved souls to Christ.
Therefore, it is without hesita-
tion that the Second Elizabeth
Church family finds it feasible to
support this family in their time
of need by hosting a "Love
Program" in honor of such a lov-
ing, giving and caring couple.
We invite our family and
friends to join us in this "Love
Program" on Saturday, June 30,
2007 at 6 p.m. This program
will be held at Second Elizabeth
located at 2718 Attapulgus
Highway, Quincy. The message
from heaven will be delivered by
the Rev. James Atkins, pastor of
New Zion Missionary Baptist
Church in Chattahoochee,
Florida and 1st Vice-Moderator
of the Union Baptist
Association.For more informa-
tion please contact Sister Rosa
Mae Love, Chairperson of the

Sharks are one of the oldest creatures on Earth with fossils
that date back to over 300 million years ago There are approvlmately
200 to 250 species of sharks in our oceans Most sharks live in wamn
or tropical waters but some do make their home in cold waters. Sharks
are thought of as aggressive fish. but only about 30 species of sharks
are considered to be dangerous Sharks attack mainly when thev are
hungry, but they can also attack for other reasons such as defense
mistaking something for a different type of prey, blood in the water,
and the splashing or movement of swimmers.
Sharks have skeletons of cartilage, rather than bone. They are
generally torpedo-shaped fish, which makes them extremely fast
swimmers. Sharks can be many colors, such as reddish brown,
bronze, metallic blue, gray, or nearly black. They can also have spots ^i
or stripes, The characteristic fin that shows on the surface of the water
is called a dorsal fin. Sharks also have an anal fin and a caudal fin,
'which is the shark's tail itself. They also have two pectoral fins to steer
and two pelvic fins in back. Sharks have five to seven gill slits, but
unlike other fish, most sharks must keep swimming in order to breathe.
Seventy percent of a shark's brain is used for its sense of smell.
