Tony [Iunter had a love
affair.with life.
Learning that his was
ending didn't change that.
If anything, it stoked his
passion for people, his
admiration of alligators,
and his appreciation of both Tony Hunter
the awe-inspiring and the absurd.
Born Jan. 23, 1953 in Tallahassee, Ronald
Anthony Hunter was the second-oldest of
Ronald C. and Hedy M. Hunter's four sons and

Gadsden officials kick off Community Fun Day

Event at St. John Park marks celebration of Parks and Recreation Month


The Gadsden County Board of
County Commissioners are celebrating
the completed improvements to St.
John Park with a dedication ceremony
and community-wide day of fun
Saturday. The event, which also
recognizes parks and *recreation


month,- will. include a basketball
shootout, food and a host of activities
for the family.
SIn July 2005, the Florida Legislature
funded the park renovations with a
$144,800 grant. The grant aided in
refurbishing two basketball courts,


replacing backboards, building a
pavilion, adding picnic tables, park
benches, walking trails and installing
state-of-the art playground equipment.
St. John Park is the second in the
county to undergo extensive
improvements.


A mighty wind


Monday afternoon's storm that. blew through Quincy left Doris Bryant's home on Malcolm Street in a mess. Bryant
said she was in her back bedroom putting away some items w hen she heard a loud crash. When she looked up, the
ceiling was caving in and all she could see was the trunk of a tree and the sky. Bryant said the only thing she could
think to do at the time was put her hand up to prevent the ceiling from falling on her head. The ordeal frightened
Bryant who said she was shaken ip but otherwise unhurt. Tree removal experts were out Tuesday morning trying to
find the best way to remove the tree, which also crushed Bryant's car, without doing further damage to the home.

The events kick off Saturday, July 14
at 10 a.m., and run until 3 p.m. at St.
John Park at Hutchinson Ferry Road

Commissioner
questions 'style'

'by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
Sherrie Taylor, the Quincy City
Commissioner who just months
ago came to the defense of City
Manager Bill Bogan at almost
every opportunity, has evidently
had a change of heart in her
loyalties.
"I have tiajor concerns with the
style ..of management of this
'manager," she said. Earlier in the
meeting Bogan had distributed a
financial statement through
'March of 2007 detailing the
financial status of the city.,
"When you give me a report
like this, you don't want me to
understand it. I'm not an
accountant," Taylor said, holding
up the report.
She also said the .commission.
had "stumbled" on problems in
Netquincy and .with WQTN
(Channel 13) during the course of
the meeting. Those things,
according to Taylor, should have
been brought to the
commissioners' attention by; the
manager. Taylor said that Bogan
was "putting her out of business"
and that she was concerned.
Two weeks ago, when Taylor
questioned why ,no energy
providers, other than :Progress
Energy, bid to provide electricity

Gadsden drought status upgraded, but effects may worsen yet


By LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor
The good news is, Gadsden
" County has been upgraded from
an extreme drought condition to


severe.
The bad news is, farmers,
landscape companies and private
well-owners may feel the effects
of the drought more intensely if
the drought continues on for


several months as predicted by
meteorologists.:
"Farmers and landscape
companies that grow landscape
plants rely mostly on surface
water," said Nick Wooten,


surface water bureau chief for the
North Florida Water
Management District. "In
Gadsden County, the main source
of surface water is farm ponds
and Telogia Creek. If the drought


continues, the stream may get too
low for additional pumping."
The Water Management
District issued a water shortage
warning June 5 urging water
users from western Jefferson to


Escambia counties to voluntarily
reduce water use.
Fifteen months of below normal
rainfall resulted in low surface
water levels in the area with a

HUNTER from Page 1


one daughter.
His father was a fireman for the
City of Tallahassee for a number
of years; his mother developed
cancer when he was 5. Hunter
and his qlder brother; assumed
many .'..f the household d duties
while his father worked three jobs:
to support the-family.,
Hunter's mother recovered
enough to work again, and the
family moved to Naples to start a
new life. It was there that Hunter's
father made a splash in the world
of real estate and his son later
made a splash of another kind:
trapping alligators.
Hunter tried following his
father's footsteps at first; that, he
said, was infinitely more
treacherous than trapping
alligators.
"I was in the real estate business,
but that got too dangerous," he
said in an April interview with the
Gadsden County Times. "I burned
out. You knew they were gonna
get you, you just didn't know how.
With alligators, you know what
their intentions are."
Hunter becaine a nuisance
alligator trapper for the Florida
Wildlife Conservation
Commission in Naples, moving to
Monticello in the early '80s to do
the same work again as an
independent contractor, with no
benefits or retirement plan and
finally moved to Gadsden County
in 1995, where he continued to
work as an alligator trapper until
illness after illness sank its teeth
into him..
Alligator hunting, he wrote in a
draft of the autobiography he
worked on for years, is a world
"so full of humor, excitement,
amazement and sometimes pure
terror."
Not that he'd ever dream of
giving it up.
Guess again.
"Yes, I guess I have lived a life
of adventure and excitement and
should be extremely happy for
that. I will tell you it has also been
filled with tragedy, disaster, pain


and suffering just like the rest of
you. And God above knows the
financial strain of trying to keep
working at something you love
even though you know you will
never be -rich in the, monetary
sense. But you know what? If you
Sgo to a job every single'day that
you at least mostly enjoy, you will
have more wealth than your
wildest dreams in the emotional
contentment way. That has a
direct bearing on your family and
friends as well so in that I guess I
just may be at least one of the
wealthiest, if not' the wealthiest,
men in the world!"
Hunter and his first wife,
Sharon, had three children: Curt,
who now lives in Sarasota, Mike,
who recently took over his father's
alligator trapping contract with the
state after his dad could no longer
work, and Danielle, who now
lives in Crawfordville.
When Hunter's wife, Sharon,
developed breast cancer at age 37
and died in 1992, it was
devastating for the entire family.
"I have lived through the joys of
my children coming into this
world as well as the devastation of
my chosen life partner dying,
much too young, in my own arms
with that picture forever engraved
upon my soul. Extremes. They are
what make life interesting."
Extremes he's seen a few. A
man at home in the swamps of
Florida, equally at ease collecting
orchids Umbells, Cigar Orchids,
Onion Orchids, Phantom Orchids,
Ghost Orchids and the, rare
Inopsis as he was scouting out
an alligator hole, plunging a pole
with a hook attached into the
water to agitate an alligator
enough to show itself, shooting
said alligator then waiting,
sometimes for hours, for the
alligator's nerve system to shut
down so that its thrashing and
Biting didn't kill him, dead though
it may have been.
It was in Gadsden County .that
Hunter fell in love again. But the.
year he and. his wife, Anna,


Tony Hunter touches the snout of an alligator he trapped for the Florida Wildlife Conservation
Commission. Hunter kept the nuisance alligators he trapped in a concrete pond behind his
house until they could be placed elsewhere. The veteran alligator trapper died of cancer July 2.

married, was the year his body
turned on him like an angry
alligator sow whose nest has been
disturbed.
After suffering a heart attack in
,2005, he was diagnosed with lung
cancer in March of 2006. Doctors
told him it was terminal.
He believed otherwise. And
there was no talking Tony Hunter
out of a fight he intended to win.
Doctors were able to treat the
lung cancer effectively but doctors
soon after found three tumors on
his brain and one on his adrenal
,gland. Hunter re-entered the
murky world of chemo and
radiation, tiredness, nausea and
fatigue.
With the support and
encouragement of his wife and
family and friends, he won that
battle too.
Then earlier this year, doctors
gave him the news the cancer had


spread to his liver.
They gave him two to 12 months
to live.
He fought it like the gentle
warrior he was for four months.
He lost the battle July 2.
He died at his home in Midway
at 2 p.m. that day, surrounded by
family and friends.
"He was a very direct, honest
man who would give the shirt off
his back," his son Curt said. "In
one of our last conversations, he
shared with me that we share a
similar fact that we trust pretty
much everyone we meet until they
prove us wrong. That impressed'
me about him.
"A story comes to mind from my
youth. We were living in Naples,
Fla., at the time and, in the middle
of the night, someone burst in and
ran to the end of the hall, curled in
a ball, and was sobbing and
screaming, "He's going to kill


me!" Back then, no need to lock
up at night. As it turned out, this
woman's husband had soaked
their home and was threatening to
kill both of them. Keep in mind
that we were a family of five, all
three kids under 6 or so.
"Anyway, instead of throwing
her out, my Dad grabbed his
firearm and told my Mom to call
the police. That woman ended up
living with us for quite a while,
just on her word that she needed
help. He has always been that way
and I thank God every day that he
was my Dad and taught me the
values that he knew."
In addition to his three children,
their spouses and his wife, Hunter
leaves a stepdaughter and stepson,
eight grandchildren, his mother,
three brothers, a sister and their
spouses..
Memorial services will be held
at Celebration Baptist Church in


Tallahassee Saturday, July 14 at
noon. Attire will be casual.
Friends and family are invited to
Hunter's Midway home afterward
for what Curt Hunter calls an
"old-fashioned Tony Hunter
celebration."
In lieu of flowers, the family
asks that donations be made to the
Tony Hunter Fund, attention Tim
Bozeman at 127 McCallister
Road, Crawfordville, FL, 32327.
In his final email to family and
friends, Hunter tried to prepare
them for the inevitable.
"Well, I'll make this short and to
the point. I went to the hospital
the past couple of days for some
tests. Seems the little demons are
doing their thing despite all the
poison we have thrown at them:
The docs and us have decided
there really isn't anything else t6
do and at the pace the cancer i
going maybe two-four weeks;
Maybe less.
- "So, we are preparing for the
journey and I am doing fine. I
want all of you to know how
much I love you all and am truly 4
blessed man for all the wonderful
family and friends God has seen
fit to put in my life. I have a
request for you all: Do not grieve
me. I have lived a life very few
have the opportunity to live. :
have been able to come and go at
will and do whatever I wanted at
the drop of a hat. I have wonderful
grandchildren, three terrific
children and a wife sent directly t6
me from God himself. An
incredible number of wonderful
friends who love (me). Can you
think of anything I'm missing? I
can't.
"So I say to you once more, I
love you more than you'll ever
know and am eternally grateful
for all your support; and prayer$
sent to me and my family. Please
don't stop the prayers for the
comfort of my family and friends
who I must leave in this world,
They will need it now most of all:
Tony. Take care. Gatorbum haW

Fire station tour


Children in the summer program at First Baptist Church in Quincy walked to the Quincy fire
station last Thursday afternoon. Their program director said the trip served two purposes: it got
them out of the classroom for some fresh air and exercise and students had the opportunity to see fire
trucks up close and talk with firemen. The program serves pre-schoolers through sixth grade. The fire
department welcomes classes and provides tours. Call the department to set up a tour.

Midway scheduled


to discuss attendance


of mayor pro tem


By LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor

Midway City Council is
scheduled to discuss the attendance
of Mayor Pro Tem Ella Barber
along with a possible expansion of
City Council chambers and a host
of other items Thursday night
during its regular meeting.
The July 12 meeting begins at 7
p.m.
Barber's attendance was
questioned during the June 7
Council meeting when Midway
resident Wendell Blakely addressed
council members about Barber's
absences. The city charter calls for
the removal of a member who has
more than three unexcused
absences; Blakely's list of Barber's
attendance shows more than three
unexcused absences.
Assistant City Attorney Larry
White said at the time he would
research the issue and report his
findings to council members during
the regular July meeting.
Also on Thursday's agenda are
presentations by the city manager
search committee and Linda Morris
on the city's Crime Watch program.
Under new business, agenda
items include:
Discussion of TRIM workshop
and budget hearing dates.
A request for approval for
interim City Manager Angela

number of monitored sites at or
near record daily low flows.
Tuesday, the Ochlockonee
River was close to a historically
low level, Wooten said, flowing
at 36 cubit feet per second.
The lowest recorded flow for
the river was on Oct. 23, 1954, at
17 cubic feet per second.
According to a July 3 Water
District report, ground water
levels throughout the district are
continuing a downward trend and
the Floridan Aquifer is at or near
record low levels throughout
most of the district.
"We did have a little more rain
in the last few days and in the
last month, but the Floridan
Aquifer takes a long time to react
to rainfall," Wooten said.
"Ground water levels are still
slowly declining. Private well
owners, depending on the depth
of their wells, could potentially
have pumps go dry. If the decline


continues, the water level could
drop below the pump and pumps
would have to be lowered to
reach the water."
No water shortages have been
reported to date and Gadsden
County is not under a mandatory
water restriction, To avoid either
scenario, Water District officials
suggest these conservation
measures:
Limit landscape irrigations to
no more than two days per week;
water only during the low
evaporation hours of 4 p.m. to 10
a.m.
Water-based recreation should
be reduced if it requires
pumping, diverting or otherwise
using natural water supply for
recreation, such as filling duck
ponds.
Aesthetic uses of water that
are primarily decorative, such as
fountains, should be voluntarily
discontinued.


DEP releases 'Being Drought Smart'


The Florida Department of
Environmental Protection (DEP)
on July 10 released Being
Drought Smart, a report
identifying water use efficiency
measures that can help in the
current drought and also better
prepare the state for future
drought situations. The report
provides recommendations for
agricultural operations; public
water supply; and commercial
and industrial practices and
programs.
"It is likely that such responses
will always be necessary in times
of severe water shortage brought
on by drought, but we can reduce
the frequency of drought crises
by being more 'drought smart' in
our usage every day," said DEP
Secretary Michael W. Sole. "In
times of water shortage, effective
conservation allows more users
to share the limited water
available."
Being Drought Smart identifies
a number of short- and mid-term
recommendations evaluated in
terms of drought responsiveness,
water saved, cost-effectiveness
and ease of implementation.
Recommendations include more
Mobile !ijjgjtion Labs to
improve water use efficiency in
agriculture, providing goal-based
water conservation plans for
public water utilities, and
installing rain sensors on
automated irrigation systems.

In response to the 2007
drought, DEP, in coordination
with the Department of
Agriculture -and Consumer
Services, the South Florida Water
Management District and the
Florida Division of Emergency
Management, produced the
Florida Drought Action Plan in
April. The agencies worked
closely with Conserve Florida, a
group established to provide
information and tools to improve
water conservation through the
development of utility-specific,
goal-based water conservation
programs, to develop the Action
Plan recommendations.
Among the tasks in that plan is
the development of practical
recommendations and policy
changes to alleviate the severity
of future droughts in Florida.
Implementation of the
recommendations in both the
Florida Drought Action Plan and
the Being Drought Smart Report
will require collaborative efforts
by many federal, state and local
agencies as well as other
organizations such as the Florida
Section of the American Water
V\oiL ki Association, the Florida
\Water Environment Association
and the Florida Rural Water
Association.
The necessity for such
measures is highlighted by
current drought conditions
throughout the state, particularly
in South Florida. In past
droughts, the region has been
able .to rely on the storage
capabilities of different regions
of the watershed, such as the
Kissimmee Chain of Lakes, the
Water Conservation Areas and
Lake Okeechobee. Never before
have all three of these regions
had critically low water levels at
the same time. In response to the
current drought, the South
Florida Water Management
District, for the first time in its
history, issued Phase III water
shortage orders (45 .percent.
reduction goal) for several
regions.
While Being Drought Smart
focuses on improving water use
efficiency as a drought response,
the State is also encouraging the
development of drought-resistant
alternative water supplies. The
2005 Legislature created the
Water Protection and
Sustainability Program within
DEP to help fund the
development of alternative water
supply projects at the local level.
In fiscal year 2005-2006, that
program contributed $100
million in state matching funds
to local governments for
alternative water supply projects,
with an additional $60 million
allocated for fiscal year 2006-
2007.

"ThisJust In


by Leslie Roberts,
News Editor


Going to the source of the


problem is the answer


If you want change, it's best to go to the
source.
More often than I like to think about,
people stop me in stores, yell at me at
traffic lights, call me all times of day and
night at home, send me anonymous
(poison pen) letters, and even approach
me at church. Most people want to tell
me about something that has made them
angry or something they feel should be
done in another way.
That's OK with me because I am eager
to listen to,just about anyone on any
subject. I have gotten some of my best
stories from unconventional sources.
There are times though, when people
want me to write about this or that
subject that has already been written
about. They missed the paper that week
so they want me to "do it again." I can't
re-hash and re-hash a single subject until
the issue has been sufficiently aired to
the satisfaction of one or two people.
True, newspapers have an obligation to
report the news and to report it as
accurately as possible. We are not
henchmen nor are we hired help to do
the dirty work of a disgruntled citizen.
Much of what I hear can best be
addressed and solved by taking it to the
body that can actually do something
about it. Is your problem with county
government? Or the City of Quincy? Or
Havana? Or Gretna? or Chattahoochee?
Try attending a commission or council
meeting to get your answers. At least the
folks who can do something about your
issue will hear it from you. If your
friends feel the same as you, bring them
to the meeting with you. The more the
merrier and a collective voice,is always
better than a lone voice.
And, another thing. Don't just come to


one meeting and drop it. The chambers
ought to be full to overflowing every
meeting because a lot more goes on in
those meeting that affects you than you
might think. It is always better to be
proactive rather than reactive.
Contrary to what people may think, I
doubt that elected officials wait
breathlessly each week for the
newspaper to come out so they can
decide what to do. I remember some
months ago when every time I turned
around someone was talking about the
"salaries" of county department heads
and other top level employees.
I decided to write an article on the
salaries to get it out in the open once and
for all. Well, it wasn't a week later that
someone called to tell me that I ought to
run the article again in the next issue so
that people who didn't see the first article
would surely see the second article.
I told the man that if the salaries upset
him so much, perhaps the venue to
address it was to the Board of County
Commissioners' meeting. After all, it is
they, not me nor this newspaper, who
decide the best way to spend tax dollars.
I told him that if he and other citizens
didn't like what they were doing, they.
might not be aware of it. The place to
address it is in an open forum and for the
record.
That way when they came up for re-
election there would be something
,concrete top)ase his decision on which
candidate to support.
Citizens, n6t newspapers have the last
word.
Use your power; it's greater than you
think.
Voice your opinions throughout the
year, not just at election time.

Before there were Trekkies...


The 60th anniversary of the UFO
"sighting" in Roswell, New Mexico, was
celebrated this past week-end. Upwards to
50,000 people gathered in that remote
desert town to commemorate; memorialize
and swap "encounter" stories. And most
kept a watchful eye on the clear, blue
western sky hoping that another alien
spacecraft would come crashing through
the stratosphere. I was a little disappointed
that they didn't invite my older brother to
be the featured speaker.
Leon was near 'bout on a first name
basis with those little silver suited men
with pronged antennae instead of ears.
And, as far as I know, he was the only one
in our little town that had actually seen the
flying saucer land. I just missed it by a
couple of seconds....
Leon, Jackie Burns and Nicky Joe
Stafford were "doing nothing" late one
evening down in the alley that ran behind
the Ben Franklin five and dime store. They
had walked up to town after the baseball
game. I was a lot younger and just tagged
along to give Leon something to complain
about.
I don't remember now why, or how, he
became enamored with those big
transformers that hung way up on several
light poles stuck side by side in that semi
dark alley. I do remember how the electric
lines entwined around and about those
transformers and then strung out from there
to every little store that surrounded the
town square.
I do clearly, anddistinctly, remember that
I didn't think it was a really good idea
when he started throwing pretty fair sized
pieces of gravel at those transformers.
Leon corrected me, "I'm not trying to hit
the transformer, I'm shooting for those
little brown glass things where the wires
connect to--"
KA-BOOOOOM!
People, I saw the sparks fly and the


lightening shoot out and felt the ground
shake right before I went unconscious!
When I caine to the whole town was dark.
And Jackie and Nicky Joe were long gone.
Mr. Bobby Ridley had the fire truck backed
up in the alley, ready for any emergency.
He turned off the siren but the spinning red
light cast an eerie glow across the scene.
The mayor and the police chief were
. interviewing Leon to ascertain the exact
* nature of the sudden withdrawal of light
from the entire town. "Well, it happened so
fast." Leon got that part right for sure! "I
just got a glimpse of the thing as it passed
over. It came out of the sky from behind
Dr. Holmes's office and it flashed over the'
square in a split second. It was a big silver
saucer shaped thing. Had little windows all
around it! There was a high pitch, whirling
noise. Did ya'll hear it? Then it veered off
toward the telephone office. That's when
everything went dark. It sucked up all our
light! Let's get out there to that field
behind the phone company. I believe it
might have landed!"
We all rushed over to the open lot on
Walnut Street just passed the Southern Bell
office. The men drove cars up and tuned
the head lights on. They crisscrossed the
area on foot with flash lights. Mr.
Hargraves found where the grass had been
pushed down. He thought there was a
pattern to it. The police chief found some
tin foil. It might have come from a space
ship. 'Course, on the other hand, it could
have been the wrap for Miss Estine's tuna
sandwich inadvertently dropped as she
took a lunch break from her operating
duties.
Timbo Packard and his crew worked
most of the night to restore the lights.
There was a big sigh of relief when Timbo
announced that although he couldn't say
for sure what caused the blackout it didn't

Serving up a slice of


Gadsden County history


Even if you're not a cookbook
person, the West Gadsden Historical
Society's "Flavors of Home" is worth
a look-see.
I finally broke down and bought one
during the society's July 4 open house
and quilt show in Greensboro.
Sensing my hesitation, WGHS
secretary Linda Clark Smith informed
me the carefully compiled book
included a recipe for possum and.
sweet taters.
"Sold," I said.
I mean. That's a thing you just can't
turn down. Not that I plan on
consuming possum on any occasion,
ever, notwithstanding the dire hike in
grocery prices as of late.
"Hmmm, ground'beef has gone up to
$712 per pound. Guess I'll grab a loaf
of $19.99 eight-week-old bread and a
jar of $55 peanut butter. Ixnay on the
possum and aterstay."
There's just something irresistible
about a book with a recipe that calls
for a person to "rub possum inside and
out with salt and red or black pepper"
before placing it in a roasting pan with
a teacup full of boiling water and, this
is key, a tablespoon of butter.
ANYWAY. Back to the book. It has
the fabulous recipes you can only get
from locals who have spent a lot. of
years perfecting them and passing
them down generation after generation
-'braised roast beef, country butter-
baked turkey, spinach artichoke
casserole and one of my favorites,


apple stack cake. There are no less
than six pecan pie recipes this is the
South as well as five squash
casserole recipes and one "special
squash casserole" recipe.
Lori Dezell, great granddaughter of
James and Maggie Shepard Dezell,
submitted her recipe for rumble-de-
thumps.
The historical society currently calls
the Dezell House in Greensboro its
headquarters; built in 1912 by James
Dezell, it's one of the oldest houses in
Greensboro. Dezell was Greensboro's.
first mayor, according to a historical
overview in the first pages of the
cookbook, whose family relocated to
Mt. Pleasant from Missouri in 1886.
Originally from Chicago, Dezell
married Gadsden County native
Maggie Shepard, of the Shepard's
Mill Shepards.
Another intriguing recipe is Velma
McLendon's Muscatine hull pie,
which she notes is very old and rarely
used these days,
The back of the book offers a
cornucopia of household hints, recipes
for special occasions, food
substitution lists and healthy living
tips.
Proceeds from the $15 cookbook go
to the historical society's projects,
including restoration of the Dezell
House. For more information on

Gadsden Historical Society, call 442-

Editor:

You can't fight City Hall" is an expression I've
heard all my life. I have never knew exactly what the
term meant, but if it means solving problems in a
peaceful and civil manner without fighting, I'm all
for it. Not wanting to fight City Hall, but rather to
talk to City Hall, I've made several trips down town
to do just that. I've also written letters to the editor
pointing out safety precautions that need to be
implemented in Quincy and my neighborhood. Last
Tuesday night (6-20-07) I addressed the Quincy City
Commission concerning fire safety and remembering
the nine brave firefighters who gave their lives to save
others (most lives lost since 9-11); I shared with the
commission the tragic story my mother, Marie
Rollins, told me. As a young girl she witnessed her
grandfather's country store be completely destroyed;
more recently and closer to home, I told of the house
next door to the Rollins' home destroyed by fire (also
witnessed by young children) in January 1986. I've
said all that to say this, "Talk Is Cheap." I am hereby
publicly requesting a meeting with the powers that be
namely: Commissioner Gay, City Manager Bogan,
Fire Chief Smith and City Attorney McLean. We
need to come up with a "Comprehensive Safety

From the

desk of

your sheriff

To the citizens of Gadsden
County:
When I campaigned to become
your sheriff, I promised that the
Gadsden County Sheriffs Office
would be administered fairly and
transparently. Nothing hidden
and nothing concealed. This is
the onset of a series of letters,
directly from my desk, that will
inform you of the progress as
well as the hurdles -that the
Gadsden County Sheriff s Office
face as we strive to provide
professional and progressive law
enforcement services. In this
letter to you, I will focus on law
enforcement services, the county
jail, the budget and how each
entity impacts you.
The Gadsden County Sheriff s
Office covers 516 square miles of
territory which includes three
bodies of water, two major
highways and a major interstate.
In the past two years, we've seen
unprecedented growth in
population with the addition of
several new sub-divisions. In the
2006 U.S. Census Bureau,
Gadsden County's population
was estimated at 46,658. This
number directly impact services
and how they are administered.
From 2002-2005 the Gadsden
County Sheriff's Office
responded to 174,160 calls for
service. In 2006, deputies
responded to 64,099 calls for
service and from January 2007 to
July 9th, 2007, deputies have
responded to 39,006 calls.
According to our
communications director, we are
well on the way of exceeding
60,000 calls for service for the
year 2007. This response effort
was accomplished with only
twenty three deputies. In which,
shifts are further broken into four
to five deputies per twelve hour
shift. The deputies serve in
various capacities including
back-up to EMS. Additionally,
they transport inmates, serve
documents, assist the Florida
Highway Patrol and our local
municipal police departments.
Currently, we have 4,600 open
warrants for arrest for people
who are still walking around in
our communities. From October
2006 until June 2007, 2,658
inmates were received at the
Gadsden County Jail and during
this same reporting period 279
inmates were arrested for violent
crimes. The men and women that
make up the patrol division have
given their best at continuing to
provide adequate and
professional services to you,
despite their low wages.
Since I took office, I have hired
a number of deputies who have
the education and training
necessary to apply to higher
paying agencies. Last year alone,
I gave every employee, with the
exception of senior command
staff, a 7% pay increase but that
still left us behind in competitive
wages for sworn employees.
This yields a high turnover rate in
sworn personnel that can leave us
.short staffed and cause a
tremendous strain on services, for
example call-time response.
In the 2005-2006 budget year,
we managed to stay within
budget due to micro-management
of spending and cutting overtime
to employees. Adhering to
recommendations of our audit
firm and putting these measures
in place lead to a successful audit
and regulated spending. Still, the
eight-man investigative unit
managed to solve ten homicides
in 2005 and most of 2006 by
sacrifice and dedication. This feat
was accomplished without
members of the unit receiving a
penny of overtime simply
because we could not afford the


cost. In 2006, we reported to the
U.S. Federal Bureau of
Investigations Uniform Crime
Report, that our investigative unit
had.investigated 25 forcible
sexual offenses, 17 robberies,
205 aggravated assaults and 305

School board hears restructuring plan for Shanks


School has failed to meet federal standards for five years in a row


By BRIAN DEKLE
Times staff writer

James A. Shanks Middle
School has failed to meet feder-
al education performance stan-
dards for the fifth year in a row,
but Gadsden County school
leaders have a plan to get it on
track, Tammi McGriff-Farlin,
school Title I and grant coordi-
nator, told the school board at a
special meeting Tuesday.
Because it failed to meet
federal Adequate Yearly
Progress (AYP) standards,
Shanks Middle School must
undergo "restructuring," or
"actions the district will take to
ensure improved performance
of a Title I school in its fifth
year of 'in need of improve-
ment' status," McGriff-Farlin
told the board.
The district has elected to
follow Federal restructuring
standards instead of the state's
because they allow "more lee-
way" to meet needs at Shanks,
McGriff-Farlin explained.
Federal requirements for
restructuring include offering
parents of students at a school
lagging AYP standards an
option of transferring to a dis-
trict school meeting AYP stan-
dards, with transportation
offered.
The district must also offer
free supplemental educational
services to eligible students
(those who receive free and
reduced price lunch) and under-
go district assistance through
"staff assignments, funding,
professional development, per-
formance pay and monitoring,"
McGriff-Farlin told the board.
Gadsden County has already
taken action to facilitate the
restructuring process and
improve performance at
Shanks, including a principal
change and restructuring
teacher placement within the
school to ensure "teacher
assignments are aligned with
teacher performance and stu-


dent gains," McGriff-Farlin
said.
The district has also imple-
mented the Florida Teacher
Advancement Program (FTAP)
at Shanks to aid in performance
improvement. FTAP calls for
the school to utilize "data-driv-
en" instruction methods and to
seek out exceptional teachers to
serve as mentors to other teach-
ers.
FTAP was put into place at
Stewart Street Elementary
School several years ago, and
since then the school has
improved its marks on a
statewide school evaluation
from a.double "F" to nearly an
"A" this year. The school also
recently met AYP standards for
the first time.
Thus, McGriff-Farlin said,
FTAP has been proven to be
effective in helping to boost
school performance. She added
Stewart Street will be able to
provide support and guidance to
Shanks as it implements FTAP
for the first year.
Major funding for FTAP's
implementation at Shanks will
come from Title I -School
Improvement Initiative money.
Title I Part A Basic money, the
district's general fund and
"other grants as available" may
also be tapped for program
maintenance, McGriff-Farlin
said.
Much of the program's cost,
which school Staff
Development/Personnel
Director Diana Decker said
totaled around $166,000 last
year at Stewart Street, stems
from paying substitute teachers
to fill in for "mentor teachers"
when' they must be released
from the classroom to perform
FTAP duties.
In other business Tuesday:
-The school board voted
unanimously to defer action on
an agreement between the dis-
trict and the Gadsden County
Sheriff's Office.
The current agreement calls


for five resource officer posi-
tions, to be assigned at East
Gadsden High School, Havana
Middle School, Carter-
Parramore Academy, James A.
Shanks Middle School and
West Gadsden High School.
Each officer is valued at
$49,982, and the school board
will foot 80 percent of that bill,
or $199,928 total.
Judge Helms, board mem-
ber, said the district's contract
with the sheriff's office should
allow for officers to respond at
schools where they are not
assigned in emergency situa-
tions.
Issac Simmons, board chair-
man, said the contract should
also provide the superintendent
with the ability to reassign offi-
cers to other schools if neces-
sary.
Several board members said
the contract should also require
resource officers to work after-
school activities or other
assignments that don't fall
within the regular school day,
without having to pay the offi-
cers a supplement, as is current-
ly the practice.
"Since we're paying 80 per-
cent, we need to get the bang
for our buck," Helms said.
Some board members also
wanted clarification in the con-
tract as to whether the board
was paying the officers for 12
months of service, or just serv-
ice during the school year.
Though the board deferred
action, Superintendent
Reginald James and several
board members stressed that the
district has an "excellent rela-
tionship". with the Sheriff's
Office, and they are very sup-
portive of hiring the five
resource officers.
-The board voted unani-
mously to suspend require-
ments that Gadsden students in
grades five and eight score at or
above level two on the science
portion of the Florida
Comprehensive Assessment


Test in order to be promoted to
the next grade.
James said Gadsden students
have struggled with the science
portion of the FCAT, and he
thought retaining students who
didn't score at level two or
above was "punitive." He
added he doesn't support reten-
tion in general.
Students who don't score at
level two or higher are given
the option of showing science
mastery through an approved.
science portfolio, in lieu of the
FCAT science requirement.
-The board unanimously
approved a school food service
reorganization plan. Assistant
Superintendent of Finance
Bonnie Wood told the board the
reorganization is needed, to
address a "chronic problem" of
the district food service not
being able to sustain itself.
In the last five or six years,
school food services have had
expenditures greater than actual
revenue and "significant adjust-
ments to expenditures due to
actual physical inventory,"
Wood told the board.
The reorganization plan calls
for a new management system,
in which the food service direc-
tor job is axed and management
is based on a "team approach"
with the following key mem-
bers: Paula Milton, Melanie
Davis, Dusty House, Dennis
Wester and Bruce James.
The new "management
team" is comprised of current
district employees who have
"specific expertise to help food
services," Wood told board.
The reorganization plan will
save the district "at least
$50,000," Wood added.
-The board voted unani-
mously to establish uniform
procedures and processes for
instructional personnel who do
not have a teaching certificate
at the time of employment.
The procedures call for
employees who do not have
required certification at the
time of employment to be paid
as a substitute teacher until
he/she obtains certification.
Uncertified employees paid
as substitute teachers will not
receive retroactive pay upon
certification, and insurance and
other benefits will not begin
until the employee is certified.


Struggling school hopes unique

program will be saving grace


B. BRIAN DEKLE
Times staff writer

Gadsden Count\ school
officials hope a program credit-
ed for helping transform a local
elementary school from a fail-
ure into a shining educational
star can do sirmlar feats at
James A. Shanks Middle
School. \ which faces restructur-
ing after failing to meet federal
educauon standards for the fifth
\ear in a row.
\\hen the Florida Teacher
Advancement Program (FTAP)
\was implemented at Stewart
Sureer Elementai School set-
eial \ears ago. the school had
double "F' marks on its state
evaluation and was not up to
par \ith federal Adequate
Yearly Progress Standards.
A Near later, however.
Stew art Street scored a "C."
and this year. even in the face of
higher stakes on school grad-
ing, the school earned a "B."
nearly an "A." Stev. art Street is
also one of just a fe\ Gadsden
County schools that have met
AYP standards.
'"What a success storN
Ste\w al Street is. They're come
from an 'F' school to the edge
of an 'A' school, even i light of
the ne\w scale. \ith an extra
115 points required, the\ 're just
eight points from an "A." and
under the old scale they'd be an
'A' plus. I'm really proud of
that. Phat's an outstanding per-
formance and it sa\ s to me the
program (FTAPI works,"
Reginald James. Gadsden
County school superintendent.
said.
James no\ looks to FTAP to
intervene at Shanks Middle
School, a "D" school that has
fallen short of AYP standards
for the last five sears. School
officials are confident the pro-
granm w~ l work at Shanks as it
did at Stewart Street, because
of its unique approach to
improving teaching perform-
ance.
"I've had a chance now for a
couple of years to see that this
is really working. It's been a
phenomenal success with a
group of students who in the


past have not been as success-
ful. Given the Shanks situation,
where they have fallen to
iteStucturing under the No
Cluld Left Behind Act. pan of
that restructurng is to ha\e a
new academic focus. which is
in the FTAP program. We feel
good about t because we've
proven that it \woiks," James
said.
FTAP pushes data-driven
ins-tuction but utnhzes a unique
element in doing so. Under
FTAP, e\ceptionall\ talented
teachers are made mentors to
othre teachers. These "teacher's
teachers" guide and instruct
their colleagues in ho. to use
data to drive intsuuction and
general\ teach more effectiue-
IN.
"It's a \en uruque program
It uses data to dim\e nmstrucuon,
but it has a teacher mentonng
piece. I think that's really
important, and that's the thing
that separates it." James said.
"We ha\ e a lot of new teach-
ers here. and so when the\
come in the\ need strong men-
tonng. \We ha\e strong teachers
constantly nentoring new
teachers and sho. ing them
how to use data to drive instutc-
tion."
James added Gadsden
County schools are full of tal-
ented teachers like Jermaine
Brown. a leading FTAP mentor
at Ste\wart Street. "She's the
teacher's teacher. She's exuaor-
dinarils talented and incredible)
gifted w hen it comes to instulc-
tion." he said.
"But there's others out there;
it's not just Jermaine. The pro-
gram allows us to take the out-
standing teachers \w.e hae and
allow them to mentor others.
We do bhae some outstanding
teachers, and dhe\ can use theu
expertise to help othei younger
teachers.
James said if FTAP is as
successful at Shanks as it w.as at
Stewran Sueet. the program \ ill
eventually be expanded to other
schools in Gadsden County.

6 The Gadsden County Times July 12, 2007



Officials hope to 'empower' faith-based partners to lend helping hand


By BRIAN DEKLE
Time staff writer

Churches and other faith-based
organizations can have a major
impact on education and the com-
munity as a whole, and Gadsden
County's sheriff and school super-
intendent plan to show local min-
isters how to do it at a roundtable
dinner meeting this week.
The dinner meeting is 6:30
p.m., Thursday, at Carter-
Parramore Academy, 631 S.
Stewart St.
Ministers and pastors are invit-
ed to the dinner, themed
"Gadsden Leaders Empowering
Faith-Based Partnerships," and


organizers ask that those interest-
ed in attending RSVP at 627-1541
or 627-5011.
School Superintendent
Reginald James will "paint a pic-
ture" of Gadsden County from the
school district's point of view, and
Sheriff Morris Young will discuss
how he deals with the same popu-
lation and how their perspectives
overlap, Audrey Lewis-Potter,
Gadsden County schools parent
services coordinator, said.
James and Young will also talk
about district needs and what
faith-based partners can do to
help. Lewis-Potter said faith-
based partners play a powerful
role in education and the greater


community, as most Gadsden
County students are members of
church congregations.
"Churches are the eyes, ears
and mouth of the community,"
she said.
Church members can mentor
children, volunteer at school,
donate school supplies and instill
good morals and values in stu-
dents to not only boost their aca-
demic performance, but to build
their character, as well.
"There's so many things faith-
based partners can do," Lewis-
Potter said.
Several Gadsden County faith-
based partners are already getting
involved in the education of stu-


dents in their congregations.
Some churches host "technology
nights," after-school programs,
standardized test practice sessions
and other educational activities.
Some churches help boost stu-
dent motivation by offering incen-
tives for students who do well in
school. One church gives $100 to
the student who reads the most for
the school district's summer read-
ing program, the "summer read-
ing wave."
Some faith-based partners are
also merging bible study with tra-
ditional public school education.
Tameka Battles, a teacher at
Greensboro Elementary School
and member of Miracle Temple,


has applied Florida's "Sunshine
State Standards" for education to
scripture, Lewis-Potter said.
After reading Bible stories,
Battles asks Sunday School stu-
dents to identify main characters,
compare and contrast themes and
answer other types of questions
that appear in standardized test
reading sections.
Lewis-Potter said churches are
often filled with retired educators
who can guide churches in imple-
menting similar academic help
strategies.
Outside of education, faith-
based partners can also help stu-
dents develop good morals and
values, thereby aiding in crime


prevention and generally "making
a better community," Lewis-
Potter said.
"Faith-based partners are the
link between education and crime
prevention," she said.
Quoting Matthew 9:37-38,
Lewis-Potter said Gadsden
County children are the "harvest,"
and faith-based partners are
"laborers" helping to reap the har-
vest.
James began utilizing faith-
based partners in Gadsden County
schools several years ago, and
since then the school board has
recognized an outstanding faith-
based partner each month at
school board meetings.


City OKs support for 'Council on the


Social Status of Black Men and Boys'


City gets DEP grant


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

The Quincy City Commission
will support the bill recently
signed into law creating the
Council on the Social Status of
Black Men and Boys. Mayor
Keith Dowdell asked fellow com-
missioners to support the bill by
establishing a local council that is
made up of representatives from
the Board of County
Commissioners, City
Commission, school district,
Public Defender's Office, State
Attorney's Office, NAACP,
Urban League, local mentoring
organizations, fraternities, sorori-
ties, faith-based organizations, the
business community, PTA, sports
leagues, a clinical psychologist or
sociologist, and other interested
parties.
Dowdell said the creation of


the councils statewide was a
major topic at a recent Black On
Black Crime Conference he
attended.
The council, which is adminis-
tratively placed in the office of the
Attorney General, is required to
make a systematic study of condi-
tions and address the disparities
affecting black males within the
state, including the homicide
rates, arrest and incarceration
rates, poverty, violence, drug
abuse, death rates, disparate
annual income levels, school per-
formance in all grades, including
postsecondary grades and health
issues.
Black men are disproportion-
ately represented in the state's
corrections facilities, with 84,901
inmates in the Florida Prison
System. according to the 2005
statistics from the Department of
Corrections. Black males also:


*account for 51% of all incar-
cerated males
*account for 32 % of the stu-
dents who were counted as
dropouts in 2004-2005
*the life expectency for black
males is 3.9 years less than for
white males.
*the HIV rates was 46.4 per
100,000 in 2004
*the average medium income
is $18,601 for black males 15
years and older compared to
$27,763 for white males; and for
full-time, year-round workers, the
median income was $22,364 for
black males and $36,198 for
white males.
Each local chapter will collab-
orate and advise the state council
when they have organized and
elected officers. Dowdell has
asked City Attorney Jack McLean
to draft the local resoultion for
submission to the state council.


Quincy City Commissioners were all smiles as they learned the city had been awarded a
$200,000 Florida Department Environmental Protection grant for rural communities. The funds
will be used to renovate Jackson Heights Park in district two. Recreation Department Director
Reginald Cunningham said the park's facelift will be a welcome addition to the district. Plans for
the park include state-of-the-art palyground equipment, water-friendly paly areas, water-friend-
ly park, shelters, new walkways, water fountains, and other amenities. Other parks, including
Burmah Heights, Shaw's Quarter, and Sunset (Acres) Park, were all refurbished through similar
grants. Left to right: Commissioner Andy Gay, Mayor Keith Dowdell, Commissioner Sherrie tay-
lor, Commissioner Finely Cook, and Commissioner Keith Dowdell. (Photo by Alice DuPont)


CITY from Page 1


to the city, she was told that
they had no interest.
"I took a class in electricity 101
and I found out a lot." she said.
The commissioner said she did
her homework and found out that
at least one provider, Gulf Power
(which serves Blountstown) was
not given the proper information
in a timely manner to make a bid.
"Gulf Power based their answer
on what they had been told,"
Taylor said.
She said Gulf Power had been
informed that the City of Quincy
owns 85 percent of the equipment
used to transmit power and could
have decided whether they
wanted to bid. She said that


Progress Energy own's'Jonly one
of the tr.iainfci stations used by
the city and that that station is
used to service not only Quincy,
but other customers as well.
"Because we went out (for bid)
in June instead of January and
because other providers were not
given the proper information is
the reason other providers were
not able to come to the table," she
said.
She then asked City Attorney
Jack McLean if he had examined
all of the documents pertaining to
the $500,000 loan agreement with
Capital City Bank and if the City
was protected.
"I do not have all of the


documents in hand to make sure
the City is protected against this
loan," McLean replied.
Moving on, Taylor said she is
also unhappy with the efforts of
the Code Enforcement
Department. She said the
department is moving too slowly
and that too many dilapidated
houses still have not been given
attention.
"I live and work in a district
where I see these dilapidated
houses. Code Enforcement needs
to step it up," she said.
Taylor wasn't the only
commissioner dissatisfied with
Bogan.
Calling his concerns "critical",

Commissioner Derrick Elias said
asked that city vehicles be used
for city business only. He said a
citizen had called him to the
Piggly Wiggly Sunday morning
because a city employee was
using the vehicle to order
groceries and that he had gotten
another call from a citizen saying
that a city vehicle was at the
Crystal River Restaurant in
Tallahassee.
Elias said he didn't think it
proper for the City Manager to
use the city's vehicle while he
works at another job, namely a
part time job for the City of
Gretna.
"I saw a city vehicle parked at
the Gretna City Hall and when I
looked closer, I saw it was the
manager's vehicle. I don't think
the city's cars ought to be used for
employees' second or third jobs,"
he said.
Commissioner Finley Cook
suggested that mileage logs be
kept by those who use city
vehicles, but Elias said keeping a
log won't keep employees from
abusing the use of automobiles.
In another vein, Elias said he
would like for the city to put a
stop to annexation until they get a
better understanding of where the
city's growth should go and the
relationship with the


,Clarys Bail

3ond Agency
l410,627,3111


Comprehensive Plan.
"Before we annex more
property, we need to address the'
properties we already have," he
said.
Last month, the manager
reported that a couple of hundred
utility customers received bills
that did not reflect their power
usage and that many bills were
significantly lower than they
should have been for the period.
He said the bills, for 199
customers, will be adjusted in the
next billing cycles. But Bogan's
explanation that the reason for the
glitch was undeterminablee" did
not appease Elias.
"We have to tell these people
(customers) something.
Undeterminable doesn't work for
me. It's somebody, something, or
the system," he said.
Finally, Elias said he had heard
that WQTN, Channel 13, had
taken a new direction and wanted
to know both the new direction
and its advantage to the City of
Quincy.
Bogan said that when he came
on board as city manager, the
public access channel, which airs
live commission meetings twice a
month as well as reruns of the
meetings, had a lot of dead time
and the shows that were
broadcast lacked quality. He said
that WQTN's expenses were paid
for out of the Netquincy budget.
But WQTN owner Jim
Southerland, said he was under
the impression that the money to
pay for- the station's broadcasts
came from franchise fees paid the
city by the cable provider. He
said he had been told to attend


Bill Lewis Fencing

(850) 875-1987


staff meetings as if he is a city
employee and that he was
informed by the manager that
someone else would be doing
station programming.
Southerland said when he signed
a contract with the city three
years ago, which has since
expired, he was to report to the
City Commission.
"I've been told that I work for
Netquincy," he said.
Bogan said that from his point
of view, the meetings he asked
Southerland to attend were held
to make the station more relevant
to the citizens of Quincy.
"Mr. Southerland seems
extremely frustrated. How much
of the work do you actually get
paid to do? I see you all around
town at different events," said
Commissioner Finely Cook.
Southerland said he does a lot
of work, for which he is not paid,
as a service to the community.
Commissioners decided to set a'
date for a special meeting during
the next regular meeting to fully
discuss WQTN and its
relationship, if any, to Net Quincy
and other departments within the
city structure.
In other matters,
commissioners:
*Directed staff to enter into
contract talks with Waste Pro to
provide solid waste services to
the City of Quincy beginning at
the end of September. However,
Commissioner Andy Gay asked
the city manager if he knew that
prisoners were picking up
garbage near Calhoun Street.
Public Works Director Chad
Brown explained that Waste
Management purchased larger
trucks that could not safely drive
through the alley to pick up the
containers. Therefore, Brown
said, inmate labor is used to roll
the containers to the end of the
ally and back to the homeowner's
property.
*Voted to send a letter of intent
to Honeywell as the city's energy
auditors.
*Were given a list of candidates
for the finance director's position
and will hold a workshop to
discuss the applicants at 4 p.m. on
July 24.
*Passed ordinances changing
the zoning/land use classification
of a parcel of land on Strong
Road on first reading.
*Passed an ordinance amending
the charter.
*Passed an ordinance
establishing a local council for
the Social Status of Black Men
and Boys.
*Passed a resolution to support
the Quincy bypass.

Independence Day brings a


whopper of a fish for local man


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

While most folks were getting
ready for a July 4th cookout at
home or a visit with friends and
relatives, Doug Mathis got up with
plans to head over to the
Ochlocknee River near Fairbanks
Ferry Road.
He wanted to see if the rains on
the previous night had any effect
on the level of the water at one of
his favorite fishing spots.
He thought his luck would be a
little better than the softshell turtle
he'd caught two days before.
"I had this small pole with a
regular hook. I was really trying to
catch small fish to use for bait,"
Mathis said.
But what he caught was a 35-
pound, 42-inch catfish, the neck
(just behind the gills) 16 inches

SHERIFF from


'Man, he looked me
dead in the eye. It was
the ugliest thing
you've ever seen. I got
him behind the gills
and pulled him out.'

Doug Mathis, describing
his catch of a 35-pound
catfish



around.
And it wasn't easy either.
"It took about an hour to reel
him in. I fought with him for a
while. He'd pull and I'd wind. We
went at it like that for about fifteen


minutes then he would stop and
rest. Then a few minutes later, he'd
pull and I'd wind. The line got
wrapped around a log in the water
and he was under the log," Mathis
said.
His initial thought was that the
big, strong thing on the other end
of his line was a turtle or even the
alligator that has taken up resi-
dence in the area. But with the
water so low, Mathis took a closer
look and came eye to eye with the
catfish.
"Man, he looked me dead in
the eye. It was the ugliest thing
you've ever seen. I got him behind
the gills and pulled him out," he
said.
With no more fight in him, the
catfish, who Mathis says is not a
record for the area, *was through
and the Fourth of July 2007
became his last day on earth.


Douglas Mathis hauled in a 35-pound catfish on July 4th.

burglaries. During this current
reporting period we have seen a
sharp increase in sexual offenses
and burglaries.
When we started the current fiscal
year of 2006-2007, I refuse to
worry about budget concerns, as it
relates to overtime and allowed
sworn staff the privilege of
receiving overtime due to low
wages. Deputies told me that they
are willing to do the work as long as
they can be compensated. That, to
me, is dedication: As we approach
the new fiscal year, I am still
looking at ways to increase wages
and will continue as I, too, was
once was a deputy and understand
what it is to receive a low wage.
As many of you may not know,


the bulk of the Sheriff's budget is
used to maintain the county jail and
the inmates housed there. The
county jail is actually the
responsibility of the County
Commission, but many sheriffs
throughout the state run the jail for
their commissions, respectively.
Since I took office, during the
period from 2003 until the present,
11, 357 inmates have been taken in
at the county jail. Of that number,
792 of have been sent to the Florida
Department of Corrections and 935
were arrested for violent crimes.
The county jail was constructed
only to hold 157 inmates.
Currently, the number fluctuates
from 220 to 230 with it previously
being as high as 257. With no


increase in staff (coupled with the
hurdle of low wages), the issue of
staff turnover remains.
I have proposed several options to
the County Commission in an effort
to highlight the issues associated
with the jail. One suggestion of
note would be to convert the multi-
purpose room to house female
inmates. This option would allow
for a greater capacity to'hold male
inmates in the cell currently
occupied by the females. The cost
of this project would be $20,000.00
with the use of inmate labor from
the Florida Department of
Corrections. This option is still in
the proposal phase. Inmates are
required by law to receive meals
that meet dietary needs and medical


attention. These costs alone are
astronomical! The cost of feeding
inmates over the last five years
(2003 to present) amounted to
$1,210,014.00. Medical costs.seem
to rise each year, especially with
special needs medication (i.e.
AIDS, TB, diabetics, psycho tropics
and pregnant inmates) being the
most costly. The cost of medical
attention from 2003 until the
present is $744,590.00. This
number would have been easily in
the millions if staff had not
recognized the sharp increase in
medications and recommended a
change in the pharmaceutical.
company. This alone saved us
around $100,000.00 yearly. Theses
numbers don't reflect the impact of


overtime for detention deputies who
have to be present when inmates are
transported to the hospital by
ambulance, attend regularly
scheduled medical appointments
and remain overnight in the
hospital.
In conclusion, I wanted to help
you understand the hurdles we face
as well as the accomplishments that
were made despite budgetary
circumstances. The men and
women of the Gadsden County
Sheriff's Office are proud,
dedicated and hardworking people.
Despite low wages, the hazards of
the job and sometimes adverse
conditions they manage to get the
job done effectively and
professionally. Many times I have


put on my uniform and worked a
shift due to shift shortages;
therefore, I understand what it is
they are faced with on a daily basis.
I will continue to fight for
competitive wages and an increase
operational funding without
compromising professional service
that I have set as the standard at the
Gadsden County Sheriff's Office.
I would like to take this
opportunity to thank my employees
for their dedication and unwavering
loyalty and to the citizens of
Gadsden County for their undying
support in our efforts to make your
community safe and enjoyable.
Humbly Submitted,
Morris A. Young
Gadsden County Sheriff


HUNKERIN' from Page 4


seem to have left any permanent
damage.
I was.too young and too afraid of
Leon to say a word. And I kinda
enjoyed the attention when
someone noticed that the soles of
my PF Flyers were scorched!
The next close encounter took
place a couple of years later. Leon
was dating Trudy Richardson and
Melinda.Beasley. I think he was
going steady with both of them
which caused quite a "juggling of
the books" as Leon delicately
described it. I know he had to be
home at ten o'clock:Sharp! Daddy
didn't hold to much late night
activity.


Leon failed to make it home one
evening. By midnight Mom and
Dad were out looking. I was getting
a little worried myself. I knew he
left with Melinda but Trudy called
about eight-thirty to ask why he
wanted to meet by the big tree
behind the Texaco Station. I
mumbled something about his
motorcycle needing a carburetor
adjustment and assured her that he
would be there.
Didn't none of us sleep much that
night. Daddy alternated between
anger and tears. I figured Leon was
going to get hugged---and then
whipped!
He came in about daylight. Hair


was messed up. Shirt was about
half tom off. One shoe was missing.
But he was smiling. "Don't worry
Mom, they had me for a while but I
escaped!"
This time the saucer landed on the
baseball field beside the pajama
factory. "They" were on him before
Leon could do anything. Four "of
their strongest" drug him up the
ladder and inside the spaceship. The'


inner sanctum was lit up by strange
green lights. Leon said the little
guys could barely speak English. It
was about like talking to Melinda.
They asked him if this was Peoria,
Illinois. He asked them if they by
chance had passed this way a
couple of years ago. He described
ihem as wiry looking with large
eyes and heads that were too big for
their bodies. And, naturally, they


wore the obligatory silver suits and
had antennas instead of ears.
How he escaped was a little fuzzy.
I rather think they used some kind
of x-ray machine and looked into
his head and ralized they might be
better servedito kidnap someone
else! He was hungry. He asked
Mom if she'd fry up some onion
rings and hoe cakes. And he wanted
to know if Trudy had called.


Daddy took away his Harley and
put him on restriction for the rest of
his life! Dad wasn't buying the ole
"flying saucer story" unless it
landed in our front yard!
I tried to get a look at the sole of .
Leon's lonp penny loafer. I wanted
to see if it had any scorch marks.....
Respectfully,
Kes

By Joe Ferolito


So, last Wednesday we celebrated one that was the big story when the
the Fourth of July and tonight season started. When will Barry'
(Tuesday) Major League Baseball Bonds break Hank Aaron's record foi
plays its annual Al-Star Game. the most career round-trippers by an
That means half the baseball sea- individual? And should there be a
son is gone. The big story is the same steroid footnote to the achievement.?


I'll be the first to admit that I
thought it would have been broken by
nov.. At the All-Star break the San
Francisco slugger was situng on 751,
just 4 sh\ of tying Aaron and 5 away
from being the all-time champ. I'll
stay out of the steroid controversy.
Both stories, no doubt will donii-
nate baseball's next one or two weeks,
before the inevitable will happen and
the record will be broken.
After that maybe the pennant races
will come into focus.
The last time this column looked at
the rnces was during the Memorial
Day Week. Nothing has changed since
then.
.In the American League, Boston,
Cleveland. Detroit, and the Angels
would ha\e been the play-off teams if
the season had ended that week.
Those same teams would represent
the League if the season ended today.
Ditto the National League.
Nlilaukee. the Mets, the Dodgers
and San Diego are the same teams that


would represent the Senior Circuit,
that would have represented it
Memonal Day.
Things have tightened some since
Memorial Day. Boston still seems a
sure thing with a 10 game lead m the
*AL East, and the Yankees unable to
get consistent pitching.
Detroit and Cleveland keep swap-
ping the lead in the AL Central. Both
will make the play-offs if they contin-
ue playing baseball like they have the
first half of the season.
That leaves the Angels as the only
team in jeopardy right now with
Seattle staying on their tail just 3
games out.
Things are a little closer in the
National League. The Mets can't
shake Atlanta. If the Braves can get all
their folks healthy, the NL East could
go down to the wire.
Milwaukee is still leading the NL
Central with, of all teams, the Cubs.
making a run at them. Chicago will
fade. they always do. And. St. Louis is


having trouble righting the ship, so,
the Biewers may be the National
Leagues sure thing.
The NL West is indeed wild. Four
of the 5 teams are playing .500 or bet-
ter baseball and only 5 games sperate
those four. The Padres and Dodgers
are at the head of the pack but Arizona
and Colorado are in close proximity.
Colorado. like Chicago will go away.
If the Diamondbacks get some pitch-
ers healthy they could be a force.
There will be other home run sto-
ries besides the Aaion-Bonds one the
second part of the season.
Ken Gnffey, Jr. could hit his 600th
before the season is out and Alex
Rodnquez should reach 500.
Sammy Sosa has already reached
600 this year and Frank Thomas 500.
As the second half of the season
plays out, 2007 will probably be
known as the "home run milestone
year". And whoever makes the play-
offs or e\en wins the World Series
may be the footnote.

Seminole rm lines


The Talquin Hookers fished
Lake Seminole Saterday 10
boats strong in very hot weather.
One lady sed you could poach
an egg on top of her head. This
is how they finished: Lonnie
Walsh was first and had Big
Fish, Sarah Dunn had second
and 2 nice Bass, Tony Scott
brung up third. The girls were
beet red with the exception of
one.
One of the husbands road to
the dam and watched a fisher-
man pulling in Catfish after
Catfish, some up to 12 lbs. using
muscle meat for bait. The
Hybrids (Sunshine Bass) were
schooling all over the river
below the dam.
Most of the Top Water hits
.has just stopped cold turkey.
Most of Mrs. Walsh's ketch was
from Flipping and Plastic Swim
Baits under the water.
SMr. Brown and son caught 20
lbs. of Bass and one went jist
over 10 lbs. and had another in
the same class break off.
With the passing of this
week, many limits of Bream
were taken off beds. Some new-
comers ask were they supposed
to fish the stumps, the ensure is
no, with the exception of Spring
Creek, stumps mean deep water.


Fly Rod Fishen has took a
turn for the better, White Flys
with Spider Legs seem to be the
gooduns. Limit catches was
made late in the week.
The past week had 2 impor-
tant dates to remember,
Tuesday, July 3rd, 1926, the US
Army Corps of Engineers was
founded. Now Friday the 6th,
1944 was D-Day at Normandy.
So many were lost that day and
for the next 120 days, each time
they fought a battle we lost
5,000 men. WWII Soldiers are
dieing off at the rate of 1,000 per
day now.
The moon is at Quarter this
day will be dark nites rite soon.
Fish should feed in the daytime,
let's hope.

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.

Dezell House July 4, the quilt, never worrying about .
It was a gift for her the time it took to complete it. ,

The Jeffersons sitcom as an
example of how to move up.
God has something better for us
because we are blessed and
highly favored. It doesn't matter
the size or location of your
church, God will come in and
show out. We must have God's
word in our heart and we are to
meditate on it daily. The word
gives you strength and power. In
order to move to the next level,
we must move from the shallow
to the deep then we can move
out of our comfort zone into a
better life where God wants us
to be.
Friday, June 8th Workshop:
Hosts for a Changing Society,
Presenter, Rev. Willie J. Brown.
(HOSTS Helping One Student
To Succeed) Rev. Brown stated
the greatest gift is one hour with
a child and we will be surprised
with the results. Parents should
instruct their children to turn off
the TV and read. We can do
math anywhere and anytime.
Read to them and with them.
The State of Florida gives
employees 3 hours to tutor chil-
dren at school, be a volunteer in
your local school. A mind is a
terrible thing to waste. Parents
need to be involved in their chil-
dren's lives. It takes a village to
raise a child. Every child is enti-
tled to the very best life has to
offer and parents need to do
their part.
Hour of Power: Sister Jena
Hicks, Title: Christian Service.
Sister Hicks stated parents need
to prepare children for the
future. People know you are a
.Christian by the way you live

actions.

Sister Ericka M. Gilliam New
St. John AMEC, Scripture:
Joshua 1:1-5, Title: A Charge to
Keep I Have. Sister Gilliam
stated if God be for us, who can
be against us. It is hard to be a
Christian these days because the
news thrives on sex, drugs,
music, idolism and money.
Scientist are discrediting the
Bible, therefore we must stand
up for what we believe. The
prize is not given to the swift but
to the one who endures to the
end. Remember the shoulders
of our ancestors upon which we
stand that have taught us and
brought us from a might long
way from Bible days Moses
leading the children out of
bondage to Harriet Tubman to
Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King.
Remember...with God's help all
'things are possible and we all,
have a charge to keep.

verse of the weeEz:
Remove from me the way of lying: and grant me they law graciously.
Psalm 119:29 (KJV)

That Fish was HUGE...
We've all heard that before, right. Yes I'm sure it was, it was just too bad it got
away. It's funny that everyone hates a liar yet
most everyone at one point or another will tell
a lie. Whether to avoid getting in trouble, help
a friend, avoid someone, or just to avoid the
NOj .) truth because of the. consequences. However
te Bible in the Ten Commandments tells us
." -' at we should not bear false witness, or in
; -. other words lie. In our verse today David's
..... I" yer is to remove him from the way of lying.
You see lying is an actual way or path we
would take in life; because once you tell one
lie you have to tell another so the cycle just
keeps rolling in the wrong direction. Then you
eventually become known as a "liar." "Oh
don't listen to her/him, they're a liar, they lie
.1'.," ^ --..--. out everything." Ever heard that before? So
'slt;a s' ~~~' ar best way to avoid having a reputation.of a
; ^la l is just not lie, right? That's right; If you do
Sng, just face the consequences. You can
rest ass'd that telling the trii an saving your character is worth a lot more in
the long run than avoiding the consequences, by lying ...._..._
FamEly TtiM.e Thit Weeek:
Play Truth of Dare this weLk as a Faumit, but make the truth questions up rronm the Bible
or use the questions from a Bible I'ri\via game.

The Atlantic humcane season begins each year on June 1
and lasts until November 31 This is the period of the yearthat
S -' we are most likely to see an Atlantic hurricane; however, there
is no guarantee that a hurncane would not occur shortly
before or after these dates Other parts of the world also have
similar storm seasons These seasons occur during different
parts of the year, and the storms are called typhoons or
cyclones. Typhoons and cyclones are also hurricanes, but they have different names that indicate in
which region of the world they are occurring. Hurricanes originate in the North Atlantic Ocean and parts
of the Pacific Ocean, and they move toward the eastern side of North and South America. Hurricanes
can also occur on the west coast of the United States. Some hurricane seasons are mild, and some
seasons bring many storms The 2005 season broke records; there were 28 tropical storms in total.
Seven of those storms were major hurricanes, which created catastrophic damage to parts of the U.S.
A hurricane is a large storm that forms in the ocean and tums in a counter-clockwise motion around
an eye. Inside the eye of the s:orm, there is no activity. It:s around the eye that the high winds and
rains occur. Specialized, weather-service airplanes are able to fly into the eye of the storm and
measure the hurricane's pressure. The pressure, which is measured in millibars, is a key component
of the storm's strength. Knowing this information helps meteorologists to predict the storms path and 4| ACR f CLU iS

Theatre A La Carte presents the musical The Scarlet Pimpernel


WHEN: Performances
are August 3-5 and 10-12
(details below)
WHERE: Tallahassee
Little Theatre, 1861
Thomasville Road at Betton
Road
SWHO: Theatre A La Carte is
North Florida's Premiere
Musical Theatre Company, pro-
ducing contemporary musical
theatre in North Florida since
1990.
In 1905, the Baroness Orczy,
a young Hungarian-born writer,
created an audacious and reck-
less hero known only by his
calling card, the red, star-shaped
wildflower known as the Scarlet


Pimpernel. The story mixed his-
torical fact with dramatic adven-
ture: as the Reign of Terror
reaches its bloody climax in
1794, a brave band of
Englishmen risk their lives to
cross the channel and rescue the
intended victims of the guillo-
tine, using disguises, ruses and
wit to foil the French army.
While on English soil, the mem-
bers of the League of the Scarlet
Pimpernel pose as the fanciest
of fops to avoid suspicion. The
group's leader is none other than
Sir Percival Blakeney, who has
married a French actress,
Marguerite. Her shadowy past
includes an, affair with the
ITT


Pimpernel's arch-nemesis,
Chauvelin, agent of the French
Republic. To raise the stakes
even higher, Chauvelin black-
mails Marguerite into helping
him discover the identity of the
Pimpernel. The Broadway


musical version of The Scarlet
Pimpernel, nominated for the
Best Musical Tony Award in
1998, adds the soaring melodies
of Frank Wildhorn (Jekyll &
Hyde) to the classic swashbuck-
ling adventure.


PERFORMANCES of The
Scarlet Pimpernel will be held at
8:00 p.m. on August 3, 4, 10 and
11, with matinees at 2:00 p.m.
on August 5 and 12, at
Tallahassee Little Theatre, locat-
ed at the corer of Thomasville


and Betton Roads. All seating is
reserved.
Tickets are $16.00, $14.00
for students and seniors. To pur-
chase tickets, call (850) 224-
8474 beginning July 27, or visit
www.theatrealacarte.org.

Second Elizabeth


Missionary Baptist


celebrates pastor's


first anniversary


It's a fact:

Voters look to newspapers for

information they need to make up

their minds about candidates and


issues.


S"How then shall they call on
him in whom they have not
believed? And how .shall they
believe in him of whom they
have not heard? And how shall
they hear without a preacher?
And how shall they preach,
except they be sent? As it is
written, How beautiful are the
feet of them that preach the
gospel of peace, and bring glad
tidings of good things."
Romans 10:14-15
SIt has been a wonderful year
f6r the Second Elizabeth
Missionary Baptist Church fam-
ily and the Rev. Dr. General
Bryant, Jr. Being led by the
Holy Spirit, the Rev. Bryant
accepted the call to serve as
shepherd of the flock at Second
Elizabeth Thursday, June 14,
211i.i6.
SThe Rev. Bryant's vision for
Second Elizabeth is that "In
order to more fully honor God
by a growing faith in Christ, we
envision a future for the church
with greater spiritual sensitivity
and awareness of God's holiness
and power in our lives. We will
work for growth in unity in
Christ, greater involvement in
evangelism and more shared
ministry with every believer
using the gifts God has provid-
ed. We look to church leaders
to serve by disciplining to oth-
ers so that believers will be
equipped and encouraged as full
partners in ministry until the
Lord returns."
During the past year, the
Rev. Bryant has created or
revived several ministries, such
as:
*The Outreach Ministry,


serving person in the communi-
ty and surrounding area;
*The Senior Citizens
Ministry, paying homage to the
elderly;
*Vacation Bible School,
reaching out to the young and
the young at heart;
*Hallelujah Night, a
Christian alternative to
Halloween.
At Second Elizabeth under
the leadership of the Rev. Dr.
General Bryant, Jr., there has
been an increased number in its
Sunday School, Bible Study and
in its congregation.
The Rev. Dr. General Bryant,
Jr., is married to Evangelist
Sharita Bryant, and they are
blessed with six wonderful spir-
it-filled children.
Please join the Second
Elizabeth family as we celebrate
this milestone with a weekend
of Holy Ghost filled services.
