2007-2008 fiscal year.
In Gadsden County and school
districts across Florida, state

Expert: Growth risky business for Lake Talquin


Ecologist says officials should consider risks, make environmentally sound decisions

just feet from the bank at Pat
Thomas Park at Lake Talquin.


By BRIAN DEKLE
Times staff writer
Gadsden County Planning and
Zoning officials should be careful
they don't jeopardize the health
of Lake Talquin when making
development and zoning plans, a


Tallahassee ecologist and water
researcher said.
New preliminary plans could
allow as many 5,000 new homes
and commercial developments
near Lake Talquin. While growth
and development, there is not
necessarily a bad thing, poor land


use plans can equal trouble for
the lake, Dr. Sean McGlynn,
technical director of McGlynn
Labs, Inc., said.
"To protect the lake, you have
to manage the entire watershed,
not just what's in the lake. So
these land uses are fundamentally


and critically important," said
McGlynn, who is also president
of the northwest chapter of the
Florida Lake Management
Society and supervisor for the.
Ochlockonee Soil and Water
Conservation, district one.
Among the water quality .risks


of developing the
environmentally critical areas
around Lake Talquin are
contamination from septic tanks,
animal waste, fertilizers and
storm, water runoff, he said.

Regulations force changes at gas stations


Vendors along evacuation routes must comply at their


own expense


By LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor
Gas stations along U.S. 90 and Interstate 10
in Gadsden County are feeling the pinch of
legislation requiring gas stations located with
a half mile of evacuation routes to upgrade
their facilities.
The legislation, enacted in 2006, requires
gas station owners along evacuation routes to
prewire their pumps with a transfer switch
capable of operating all fuel pumps, to install
debit or credit card payment sites that can be
supported by a generator to have dispensing


equipment and life-safety systems.
A life safety system is typically designed to
protect people and the environment by
isolating sources of specialty chemicals by
shutting down equipment and/or machines.
It's used most often at sites where the
chemicals housed pose a flammable,
corrosive and /or toxic hazard. Normally, the
system includes toxic 'and combustible gas
analyzers, several ways of detecting chemical
leaks, shutoff valves, and interfaces with fire
alarms and heating and ventilation air
conditioning units.
"A number of (gas station owners)


obviously are not happy with it," Florida
Department of Agriculture and Consumer
Services spokesman Terence McElroy said,
"but it's the law."
FDACS is in charge of enforcing the statute.
Spawned by the 2004-05 hurricane season,
during which some in areas hit by hurricanes
were unable to get gasoline because the
electricity was out for extended periods of
time, the new law is designed to ensure a
continuity in operations whether or not
electricity is available.
See REGULATIONS on Page 2

Gretna is one of many in the county getting an upgrade. The
upgrade is required for gas stations throughout the state located

REGULATIONS from Page 1


Although the deadline- for
compliance was June 1, DACS
representatives are working with
gas station owners to bring them
into compliance. Stations that had
hired contractors to do the work
were given some leeway beyond
the June 1 deadline for the
completion of upgrades.
The Florida Department of
Environmental Protection's Florida
Energy Office is also providing
compliance assistance and reports
on the progress of the statute's
implementation.
"We do have that regulatory
responsibility," McElroy said. "For
the last six weeks or so we've been
doing a compliance sweep. We're
finding most stations are in
compliance or have work contracts
that will take them into compliance
shortly."
McElroy said the process of
performing the upgrades is a fairly
lengthy one, and that DACS takes
that into consideration when


checking for compliance.
"Obviously, you need more than
two to three days you have to get
building permits, post-construction
inspections, sign contractors ... we
are issuing violation notices but we
were not during the sweep
imposing any penalties if they
showed us documentation they
were in the process of getting the
work done."
Violation of the statute is a
second-degree misdemeanor.
Gas station owners are required
to pay for the upgrades
themselves.
During the recent compliance
sweep, 13 local gas stations were.
found not in compliance with the
statute's requirements: Murphy
USA on Pat Thomas Parkway in
Quincy, Johnson and Johnson No.
18 at the intersection of 1-10 and
Highway 12 near Greensboro,
Exprezit! No. 605 on Pat Thomas
Highway, The Pantry at U.S. 90
and County R9ad 269 in


Chattahoochee, Pilot Travel Center
on Bluestar Highway in Midway,
Quincy Stop on Robert Street in
Quincy, Riverview Bait and Tackle
on Washington Street in
Chattahoochee, Johnson and
Johnson No. 12 on Jefferson Street
in Quincy, The Pantry No. 3887 on
Jefferson Street in Quincy, Kelly's
Jr. Store No. 6 at Atlanta and West
Jefferson streets in Quincy, Flying
J Travel Plaza on Bluestar
Highway in Midway and Shell Jai
Alai on Flat Creed Road in
Chattahoochee.
John Bass, manager of the
Riverview Bait and Tackle store
and son of its owner, said the gas
station now meets state
requirements but he's not sure how
much good that will do in the
event of a natural disaster.
"If you can't get gas delivered
any way, what's the big deal?" he
said. "And if it's that bad, I'm
outta here and the store is closed.
But it's done, so que sera, sera."

SHORTFALL from Page 1
/


four percent minimum shortfall.
School districts should be
"pessimistic" about state
appropriations, state officials
have told school districts.
The four percent deficit equals
$1.6 million dollars less than
projected in the Gadsden County
School Board budget. School
officials say they have, a plan to
deal with financial shortcomings,
however.
"We're -consolidating and
filling in gaps to make the budget
work,"* Gadsden County School
Superintendent Reginald .James
said. "The money they've (the
state) allocated, they've taken
back, and that makes for a very
tight situation."
The school board plans to
"maximize" its current resources
to prevent layoffs and program
cuts, Bonnie Wood, Gadsden
County Schools comptroller,
said.
For now, school employees'
jobs are safe, but school officials
are examining the district's 100
job vacancies, being careful to
fill only jobs "essential to
instructional programs," "Wood
said.
This does not mean programs
will be axed, however, Wood
added. For instance, instead of
hiring an art teacher at Havana
Middle School, school officials
will likely ask a teacher or other
specialist within the district to
instruct art classes there, Wood
explained.
The district will take similar
action in other. vacant subject
areas. A math teacher may be
asked to teach reading or a
teacher at one school may be
asked to move to a different
school, as needed based on
vacancies.
The board also does not plan to
cut funding to programs across
the board; instead, it will make
"program specific" reductions to
prevent programs from being
under funded and, thus,


ineffective.
Though jobs may currently be
safe, school officials are holding
off on any salary increase
commitments until "real
revenues" are solidified.
"The most important thing is
we don't want to harm any
instructional program. But if we
don't get any extra money, we
can't generate raises," James
said.
"Through the process of hiring
for only essential positions, it is
my hope that we can reduce our
workforce' enough without
layoffs to produce some salary
increase for our employees."
Rising operating expenses,
higher health insurance
premiums and the opening of the
new West Gadsden High School
make the budget shortfall
particularly difficult, Wood said.
"It's going to be a very careful
balancing act to open this new
school," she said.
Still,. Wood added, the district
refuses to be pessimistic about
the upcoming year.
"We're just the opposite," she
said. "We're going to use this as
an opportunity to maximize our
resources. By carefully
monitoring, we can come up with
$1.6 million."
In addition to more careful
hiring practices, the district will
also limit travel and other
expenses not specifically
allocated in the general fund.
Though school officials remain
hopeful that its current plan will
keep jobs and programs safe,
James admits an allocation
shortfall greater than four percent
would be a "different situation"
that could impact people and
services in the district.
Lawmakers will convene in
August and a special session may
be called in September to discuss
state school allocations.
These meetings will determine
the final and definite allocation
shortfall.

TALQUIN


from Page 1


There are ways to have
development with minimal risks,
he added, with a good lake
management plan.

Septic tanks, fertilizers
pose risks
Septic tanks in high-density
developments rarely mix with
lakes, McGlynn said, and Lake
Talquin is no exception.
"Septic tanks can be a big
problem around lakes, and they
are in many places, either through
failed systems where it runs
directly into the lake, loading the
lake with nutrients and bacteria.
In addition, they can elevate
nutrients in the shallows through
aquifer seepage," he said.
The soils around Lake Talquin -
a sandy clay variety are not the
best suited for septic tanks.
Seepage from septic tanks isn't
filtered well by the clay layers
under much of Gadsden County.
Because of these layers, seepage
does riot percolate straight down
into the soil. Instead, it goes
sideways across layers, and if
septic tanks are not properly
situated, the seepage can make its
way into the lake, McGlynn said.
Failed septic systems cause
even more problems from direct
runoff of nutrients into lakes and
the rivers and streams that feed
them.
Lawn fertilizers also pose a big
risk for Lake Talquin and its
watershed.
Both fertilizers and septic tanks
are loaded with the nutrients
phosphorous and nitrogen. And
while',the term "nutrient" may
have a pleasant connotation, the
overburden of such in lakes is
actually the cause of major
ecosystem health issues.
Nutrient runoff in lakes causes
eutrophification, or excess
nutrients entering the water body,
such as nitrates, phosphorous and
other chemicals.
These nutrients are normally
required for plant growth and
animal life, but in excess amounts
they can lead to serious
ecosystem problems.
Common effects from
eutrophification are high algae
and bacteria growth.
Algae and bacteria consume
huge amounts of oxygen,
reducing the supply readily
available for fish and other
species.
The result is fish kills and a
generally rotten lake, which
scientists call "eutrophic."
Eutrophification generally
reduces biodiversity and will
specifically and sometimes
dramatically reduces numbers of
certain species.
High bacteria levels also result
in health advisories and "no
swim" warnings.
In addition, dogs, cats, horses
and other animals that often come
with residential developments are
obviously -not using septic tanks,
meaning bacteria and other
pollutants from their waste are
making it into the soil.

dock railing at Ingram's
Marina at Lake Talquin,
waiting to nab some
unsuspecting fish from the
water below. (Photo by Brian
Dekle)













While this may seem trivial, a
horse is actually equal to eight
people not on a septic system,
McGlynn said. For this reason; it
is imperative that the raw sewage
able to be treated (from humans)
is in fact treated properly with
well-maintained, low-density
septic systems.
Although sewer systems are
ideal for residential
developments, with responsible.
planning, it is possible to have
septic systems with minimal risks
to Lake Talquin.
First, septic tanks should never
be allowed in extremely dense
developments; developments
should be made less dense where
septic tanks are used.
"In most cases, you don't want
high density development. You
want larger developments where
the septic tanks have adequate
room to be treated by the soils,"
McGlynn said.
Natural, harmless bacteria in the
soil utilize nutrients from septic
tanks; the bacteria actually clean
up seepage.
For bacteria to be effective
"cleaners," however, they must
have enough contact time and
space to do so. The more space
allowed per septic tank, the better
the treatment.
Second, residents with septic
tanks should be educated on how
to properly maintain their
systems. Ordinary household
items from dryer sheets to
bleaches to salt to tampons can
reek havoc on septic tanks when
flushed.
People should be well educated
on what they can and cannot flush
to avoid septic tank failures.
Another solution is mandatory
septic tanks maintenance regimes.
In environmentally sensitive
areas in Leon and Wakulla


Counties, government officials
are considering requiring
maintenance contracts with septic
tank users, which would demand
yearly pumping and other
maintenance tasks.
Gadsden County officials could
do the same to prevent problems
from septic tanks at Lake Talquin.
As for fertilizers, residents
should reduce or eliminate the
amount used on lawns. In
Minnesota, "the land of 1,000
lakes," fertilizers have actually
been banned to protect freshwater
bodies there.
Soil tests often reveal that
fertilizers are not even necessary
for the health of a lawn, so
homeowners should have these
tests performed before applying
fertilizers.

Commercial ventures
breed lethal storm water
Storm water runoff poses
another big risk to Lake Talquin.
Preliminary plans for the Lake
Talquin area include commercial
zoning for grocery stores, mini
marts, dollar stores and other
ventures.
These types of developments
bring in roadways, parking lots
and other "impervious surfaces."
Impervious surfaces, which also
include residential rooftops and
driveways, are unable to filter
storm water runoff as soil would.
"(Storm water) doesn't run off
the same way it would in a forest
or grassy area, obviously. You get
a lot more volume, you don't
havp the infiltration where it.
soaks into the soil, you don't
have. the plants taking it up and
retaining it so it can grow,"
McGlynn said.
Storm water is extremely
dangerous to lakes, as it is loaded
with road chemicals, heavy


metals, oils and greases,
hydrocarbons, nutrients and
more.
A storm water treatment plant is
a must for lake watershed areas
with high storm water runoff
levels.
A natural "buffer" can provide


the lake and its watershed
protection from storm water
runoff and other pollutants. A
buffer is simply a strategically
placed area of naturally vegetated
land that helps mitigate and
absorb pollutants.

Lake Talquin and future
generations
Though Lake Talquin is
"relatively healthy" now, it
borderlines disaster.
"It would not take very much
more loading to tip it over,"
McGlynn said. "We have had fish
kills. We are experiencing
extensive sedimentation the
building up of that soft muck in
the lake. We're experiencing algal
blooms and low oxygen levels -
particularly in the summer
months so Lake Talquin needs
to be protected. A lot of problems
are coming from the Ochlocknee
River from beyond our borders;
that makes the situation worse, so
we can't do as much because it's
already somewhat impaired."
Pollution at Lake Talquin can
also create problems downstream,
including red tide as the waters of'
the Ochlockonee River enter the
Gulf of Mexico.
Taking steps now to reduce
environment risks at Lake Talquin
will keep the lake healthy, for
present and future generations,
McGlynn said.
"(Government officials) need to
decide and start enforcing it now

Thomas Park., Lake Talquin is nationally famous for its
exceptional fishing, but reduced water quality from mismanaged
development can equal massive fish kills and fewer recreation
opportunities for locals and tourists alike. (Photo by Brian Dekle)


A big live freshwater mussel
dominates his smaller dead
counterparts at the waters edge
of Lake Talquin. Mussels act as
"filters" or "water purifiers" in
water bodies and tell humans
something about the health of
the environment on which we
both depend by responding to
changes in water quality.
Because of declining water
quality in America's lakes and
streams and other human-
caused factors, it's estimated
that 70 percent of our
freshwater mussels are extinct,
endangered, or in need of
special protection. (Photo by
Brian Dekle)

before the developments come in.
Make the developments conform to
these standards. Because you're
never going to be able to go back in
time and fix it after they've built it.
It just doesn't happen. It's.much
cheaper.to have it done up front and
done right. But you can develop;
you can build in these areas. It's a
beautiful place to live," he said.
"One really good thing about
Lake Talquin and Gadsden County
is the amount of national forest and
protected lands they already have.
That's not going to change. That's
there forever. They should be
shielding protected lands from
(inappropriate) land uses.
Gadsden officials should also be
willing to make investments now
for the future of the lake. Albeit
expensive, sewer systems are much.
safer for Lake Talquin than septic
tanks, and installing sewers now
can pay off in the future, McGlynn
said.
"It's an expensive investment, but
generally it's recouped because of
the property values. We saw in
Killeam lakes, the instant people
hooked up to sewer systems from
septic tanks, their property values
increased by $20,000 just by
hooking up," he said.
"For'the future, we've got to
realize sustainable developments
are what are important not only
for us, but for our kids. To have
high land values, you have to have
the place attractive, so it's important
to preserve what natural areas we
have, particularly on water
resources for recreation. And that
makes the land more valuable,
makes people build bigger houses,
makes people want to live and build
a tax base in Gadsden County. The
short term quick profit,
unsustainable development -
they're going to have problems that
are going to do-nothing but cause
future generations millions and
millions of dollars to make up for
it."

Solomon Dairy Road home when
her dog started barking. She
stepped outside to see what might
be attracting the dog's attention, and
saw Alls standing next to a fence on
her property.
"When she came out he went over
the fence," said Harold Ziegler,
who arrived home to find four
GCSO vehicles and several QPD
cruisers parked at the entrance to
his driveway. Mrs. Ziegler said she
asked Alls what he wanted.
"He answered me, but I couldn't
understand what he said," she said.
Meanwhile, GCSO deputies used
two dogs to search for Alls.
Law enforcement officers
established communication with the
man after he began calling'them on
a cell phone he allegedly took from
his girlfriend's house. He had also
been in touch with his aunt, who
arrived at the scene around 6 p.m.
after Alls told authorities he would
surrender once he saw her car.
He then told authorities he was at
Gretna Elementary School and
would surrender once his aunt got
there. The school is close to four
miles from where he had last been
spotted; although law enforcement
officers were skeptical of the
suspect's ability to get to the school
so soon after being spotted on
Solomon Dairy Road, they drove
with the man's aunt to see whether
he might have gotten a ride to the
school. Meanwhile, deputies who
remained behind near the
intersection of Solomon Dairy and
Luten roads heard a noise in the
woods.
"He was calling his auntie and
said when he saw his auntie's car
he'd come out," Moore said. "I
think he did that (told authorities he
was at Gretna Elementary) thinking
everybody would go away and then
he'd come on out of the woods."
Deputies quickly determined Alls
was still in the woods and
ig


apprehended him around 6:30 p.m.
He was transported to the Gadsden


County Jail, where he is being held
without bond.

Half doing two jobs


You folks never cease to amaze me! I
appreciate that you honor me'by taking the
time to read these little blurbs. And I am
continuingly astounded at the 'astute
observations and insightful comments I
receive concerning some of fny stories.
Many of you remember so many of the
same things that I do.....and I am richer for
your thoughtfulness to share them with me.
I loved the call I had about a story I just
recounted a few weeks back. The article
described my older brother's close
encounters with some space aliens. The
caller had no problem apparently believing
that Leon had, indeed, seen flying saucers
land. And they seemed to accept readily
that he had been captured and taken aboard
a spaceship from another world. It didn't
seem unusual to them that Leon had
actually communicated with the little silver
men.
I reckon the caller figured that was just
routine stuff. Anybody could have had
those things happen to them. What she
found "unbelievable" about the article was
that Leon could, in fact, in such a small
town as we grew up in, go steady with two
girls at the same time and neither one know
about it!
Well it happened! Leon was pretty quick
with his wits. And the girls, according to
the local grapevine, weren't.
They were very nice. I liked'em both.
And they both were decent looking. They
didn't have Sandra Dee kinda beauty mind
you, but neither was a dog. Melinda
Beasley was tall and skinny. She had red
hair and laughed at anything. Trudy
-Richardson was not so tall and she
definitely wasn't skinny. I don't mean to
imply that she was plump.....thinking back
on her, I'd say mildly stout. Trudy didn't
look quite as good when she put on those
thick, black, cat-eyed glasses.
They were several years older than me
and to tell you the truth I was more into
playing baseball than rating girls. And


Leon wasn't trying to be no "Don Juan" or
really hurt anyone here. I lived with him.
He wasn't devious or sneaky. He was the
happiest person I've ever known. He did,
however, view life a little different than
most. He definitely beat to some drummer
that was pretty much'unknown by most of
the folks in our little town.
Leon liked both girls. It was as simple as
that. Melinda, as the older folks would say,
"had set her cap" for Leon years before.
She didn't make no bones about it. She'd
hang out at Frank's Dairy Bar and wait for
him to drive up. They, in perfect
contentment, would eat a cheeseburger
with grease.dripping off each side and
running down their fingers. He'd tell her
some tall tale about him saving Paul David
and Bobby C. from them wild Atwood
boys and they both would just laugh and
laugh.
They were a natural fit.
Trudy was a ball of energy. She came in
talking and carrying on and she went out
the same way. She was about half crazy, in
the good sort of way. She would try
anything, do anything and she loved a good
prank. She was the one that rolled Mr.
Berry's truck from the school parking lot
all the way over to Miss Polly's house. She
did it in broad daylight! The whole town
was buzzing about Mr. Berry being "over
at Polly Rucker's" when he was supposed
to be teaching science!
You had to love a girl like that! And I
reckon Leon did.
He didn't have but one class ring. I think
he borrowed the other one from Bobby C. I
can't remember now which girl got his
ring. But I know he "explained" to the
other---the one that got the ring with the B.
C. initials---that Daddy called him Buddy
when he was growing up.
Friday and Saturday nights were the
toughest. He'd leave in that '57 Ford
convertible and pick up Trudy. He couldn't

Piecing together patches of happiness


Those unexpected, indisputable
scraps of sweetness strike me
sometimes, streaming through my life,
turning a tense day into a five-star
experience and sending a spate of
happiness in which I can swirl,
however momentarily.
Appreciation of small, every-day
fortuities is universal, I think. I hope.
Plenty of people know what it's like to
drive down the road and hear a favorite
song come on the radio it's such an
exhilarating moment, to sing along and
let slide the worries of the day for a
good three-and-a-half minutes. It's
why I put up with commercial breaks
and inane chatter, that welcome
surprise.
I like stopping at a convenience store
and finding friendly banter with the
clerk convenience clerks make the
world go around. Good ones will make
you glad you stopped there:
I love Coca Cola. My grandfather
worked for Coca Cola and my
grandmother had an authentic Coke
cooler in the breezeway, circa 1955,
where lucky grandchildren -there were


16 of us could slide a bottle out,
remove the top with the built-in bottle
opener and sit on a swing while
sipping the stuff. I've switched to Diet
Coke now, but when I was 4 my
mother would fix me a snack of saltine
crackers and cheese and Coca Cola.
Thus armed, I watched "Sesame
Street" while she ironed clothes. It was
a delightful interlude.
I love when you're talking with a
friend, and you both say the same
thing at the same time. Jinx. Or a
friend who knows you fairly well will
raise an eyebrow or utter a well-timed
word that makes you laugh until your
sides hurt.,
I love the sound, of cicadas at dusk,
their symphony swelling until they pull
the darkness over like a thick, downy
comforter.
I also like tree frogs I don't know
why. Armadillos that rush me in the
coolness of the dawn all the while
sounding like a crazed bear crashing
through the woods as I slip outside
with coffee and a clinch on that
peaceful moment not so much. A

Leon Co. man charged in shooting death of local man


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

A 26-year-old Tallahassee
man, Jimmy Ray Hair, Jr. has
been charged with second degree
murder and firing a missile into a
vehicle for his alleged involve-
ment in the shooting death of 26-
year-old Charles Harper of


Quincy early Sunday morning.
Ray is being held in the Leon
County Jail without bond.
According to the Tallahassee
Police Department, Ray is
accused of shooting Harper out-
side the 'Top Flite Club on
Osceola Street around 2:15
Sunday morning. He died'later
around 10 a.m. at Tallahassee


Memorial Hospital.
According to reports from
TPD, Hair and Harper had got
into an argument inside the
nightclub. Off-duty officers were
at the club, but didn't see the
argument and the incident was
not reported at the time because
it appeared minor, said John
Creamer, TPD spokesman.


Later,
Harper and
friends were
headed to
their car
when a silver
Dodge
Chargers
pulled up
next to them.


Hair


Hair, who was a passenger in the
car, allegedly fired once, striking
Harper the head.
Acting on a tip, police went
looking for Hair. They surround-
ed his residence at Le Marais
townhouses on West Tharpe

Havana incidents leave authorities looking for suspects


By LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor

Gadsden County Sheriff's
Office investigators believe two
armed robberies and one shoot-
ing in Havana last weekend are
related, and are asking area res-
idents for help with the case.
GCSO Lt. Larry Smith said
Tuesday he was still working on
the case, and that he thinks it's
likely the suspects are from
Havana. He is trying to put
together a more detailed physi-
cal description of the two men.
"The description of the sus-
pects in each of these events
bears a lot of similarities," he


said.
The first incident occurred
around 11:30 p.m. July 20. Two
black men driving a dark-col-
ored car approached a man
walking home from work. He
told authorities the two asked
him whether he needed any-
thing; assuming they were ask-
ing whether he wanted drugs, he
told them no.
At that point, the driver of
the vehicle told the man to
"look here," and pointed a
handgun at him. The men
demanded he give them all of
his money, which he did $26 -
and the two fled the scene head-
ing north on Highway 27.


Around 35 minutes later, a
19-year-old black man was shot
just down the road from where
the armed robbery took place.
Trumel Brown, of 100 Leach
Loop in Havana, was shot in the
chest after a dark-colored vehi-
cle drove through the area.
Witnesses told authorities
the car first entered Leach Loop
without stopping. Minutes later,
the car returned, and its passen-,
ger started asking about two
men Brown did not know. He
then asked Brown whether he
had a brother. After Brown said
he did not, the man asked
Brown if he knew where he and
the car's driver could get some


weed. When Brown told him
no, the suspect fired one shot
from a black handgun. The
round struck Brown in the chest
and the two men in the car sped
off toward the city limits of
Havana.
Brown was transported to
Tallahassee Memorial Hospital,
where he was listed in stable
condition.
Then early Monday, around
12 a.m., investigators were
again called to the area after
residents reported shots had
been fired in Havana near River
Road. Two men in the area of
River Road reported being
robbed by two armed men.


Witnesses described the
weapons as "a long gun and a
handgun," both of which were
discharged during the robbery.
No one was injured.
The suspects were described
as two black males between 19
and 21. The driver of the vehi-
cle was wearing a white t-shirt
and had short black hair. He was
armed with a black .22-caliber
handgun.
The passenger was wearing a
black t-shirt and black shorts
with a white covering over his
head. The vehicle they drove
was described as a dark-colored
Ford Taurus body style car with
a faded license plate cover.


/ If you have info on
this case, call Lt. Larry
Smith at 627-9233 or
Big Bend Crimestoppers
at (850) 574-TIPS
(84-7)


Investigators have no con-
crete leads at the time and say
they need the public's assis-
tance. Those with information
about any of the three incidents
are asked to call Smith at 627-
9233' or Big Bend
Crimestoppers at 574-TIPS

Two years later, New Orleans still feeling the hit



Residents of Ninth Ward still awaiting help, electricity as they try to rebuild their lives


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

It's hard to know exactly where
you are in the Lower Ninth Ward
section of New Orleans. Most of
the street signs are gone. Stop
signs still dangle on twisted metal
poles, some of them upside down.
All around stand empty lots or
houses in need of repair or demo-
lition. Abandoned houses outnum-
ber those under repair.
The home of Fats Domino,
from where the National Guard
rescued the famous musician, has
nearly been repaired through the
efforts of an organization dedicat-
ed to helping struggling musi-
cians. But, for his neighbors, who
have no fame, parts of the Ninth
Ward strangely resemble a ghost
town. Between the vacant lots,
many of which are now over-
grown with only concrete slabs
and steps leading to nowhere offer
a clue that a home was once there,
are a few homes that show signs of
people attempting to rebuild.
Each weekend, families from
the Lower Ninth Ward and other
affected areas where the levees
broke who have not given up hope
or who do not live to far away,
come back from the northern parts
of the state, Arkansas, and Texas to
try to make a few repairs. They
must make the most of daylight
because there is still no electricity.
They leave before night falls
because, they say, that's when
roaming gangs come out.
Wayne and Savannah Fritz are
among the families who make the
trek back almost weekly to make
whatever repairs they can. They
are adamant about making the
repairs and returning to their home
no matter how long it takes. The)
are determined to see the long.
narrow home returned to its for-
mer glory.
"This was a 1940's style house
in every way. To a lot of people it
might not be much but it was ours.
This was the place Where the
neighborhood gathered for parties
and holidays. We always had a
house full of company," she said.
When they were finally able to
come back to the neighborhood.
all they found was the shell of their
home and the wreath from the
front door which read "Home
Sweet Home". The'Fritz's are
keeping the sign which, they say,
will go up on the front door when
the house is repaired.
Savannah Fritz still cries when
she talks about the neighbors who
died when the levy broke. From
the front porch she points to where
the the wall of water came from
that, nearly leveled most of the
area.
"The man who lived over there
had a heart attack and died. They
found the body of the man across
the street floating two blocks
away. My friend on the other side
of he street and her two teenage
daughters drowned. My son took
one of the girls to the prom and the
other one was prom queen. Now
they're all gone. I knew a teen-age


boy down the street who killed
himself because he couldn't take
all of the loss," she said, as tears
rolled down her cheeks.
The Fritz's and some of her neigh-
bors and friends, who had gath-
ered to help the couple, say they
don't think the city has any inten-
tion of rebuilding the Lower Ninth
Ward. They say they've heard that
developers, including Donald
Trump, are trying to buy up the
property cheap.
"They haven't even put elec-
tricity down here. I had to buy a
generator just for the carpenter to
frame out parts of the house. They
have tour buses coming down here
looking at us as if we're on display.
This is no joke, these are our lives
and we are real people. They've


w -,"O
donated RV and distribute bottled
water, paper towels, toilet paper,
and snacks.
"A lot of people still don't have
anything. A little thing like a pack-
age of snack crackers doesn't
mean a lot to some people but it
means a lot to these people," he
said.
A few miles away, in the hard
hit area of Lakeview, there is more
activity. FEMA trailers sit on front
lawns as people fix up their homes
just feet away. Here too, however,
new homes sit beside homes that
are badly in need of repair.
Volunteer groups, such as those
from Lakeview Christian Center,
mow yards and do what they can
to help others.
Lakeview has been sending out


near rooftops tells the story. While.
some are in various stages of
repair, others, church members
say, have decided to not return.
Others leave spray painted notes
on their homes either, vowing to
return or giving in to Katrina arid
the levy.
Throughout the city FEMA
trailer parks have sprung up.
Around any comer, grouping of
the small white trailers in parking
lots, or any open space, are the rule
and not the exception. The white
trailers gleam in the sun in stark
contrast of the hurricane that
changed the landscape forever.
Last week the television and
newspapers carried stories of
formaldehyde in the trailers that
was making people sick.
Michael Robinson lives with
his wife, Rose, in a trailer in their
front yard. Robinson said he does-
n't know how much longer he'll be
able to stay because living in the
trailed hja takedri it.k itoll n Ro-'s.-


Savannah Fritz, standing in
doorway, and her husband
Wayne, seated, return from
Houston, Texas, every week-
end to work on their homes.
Friends who live nearby come
to help as often as possible,
but the couple says it's diffi-
cult to accomplish much
without electricity, even two
years after Hurricane
Katrina ravaged the area.







health.
"She has trouble .breathing
now. Trhe longer she stays, the
worse it gets. I know my wife and
I know how she should be breath-
ing. I keep telling her that she's not
breathing right," Robinson said.
And if it's not the formalde-
hyde, it's the cost now associated
with trailer living, that has some
people upset.
"They said the trailers were
free, but last month I got a utility
bill for $336. The gas was $78 and
I told them I don't know how I


could have a gas bill because I've
been using propane for the past
two years," said one of Robinson's
friends.
Before last month, the man,
who didn't want to give his name,
said his bill was between $13 and
$15 per month. "They say I have
to pay it; what choice do I have?"
he asked.
For the people who were so
adversely affected by Katrina, the
City of New Orleans has added
insult to injury by trying to keep
the tourists coming. Fritz and her
friends and neighbors say the city
should be trying harder to help
then repair their homes and get
jobs.
"They're not trying to help us,
all they're interested in is putting
on carnivals and festivals for visi-
tors. They want people to think
that everything is OK in New
Orleans but it's not. We still need
help, a lot of help. That's what
upsets me the most when I see the
president last week give away
$190 million to a foreign country
and we're here suffering. We can't
even get electricity to our homes
to repair them," Savannah Fritz
said.

haven't helped us," she said.
They said the few children that
remain have been going to school
in trailers and they have no books.
"They know if the children aren't
getting an education, the parents
are going to move. What's a better
way to destroy a neighborhood?"
she asked.
Deacon Quin Bates of. the

by Kenner agrees. He said the

families must shop at a conven-
ience store where the prices are
significantly higher. On weekends,
Bates and volunteers board a

City tracks down source of utility bill anomaly


by ALICE DU PONT.
Times Editor

Quincy's City Manager Bill
Bogan said the problem that left
399 utility customers with lower
than normal bills last month has
been identified. The culprit was
the handheld computers used by
meter readers to determine what
each customer should pay for
their consumption of utilities.
"The device was not func-
tioning properly. It actual froze
on the reader. The device (which
was limited to one of three city-
owned devices) will be returned
to the manufacturer and a loaner
will be sent to replace it," Bogan
said.
During the last meeting,
Bogan told commissioners that
the reason for the misread was
"undetermined" but said that
after a series of tests were run on
various facets of the equipment
and the questioning of person-
nel, a faulty device was the only
conclusion.
He said the city will continue
to monitor the devices, which
they began using about nine
months ago, and that the mis-


"The device was not
functioning properly. It
actual froze on the reader.
The device (which was
limited to one of three
city-owned devices) will be
returned to the manufac-
turer and a loaner will be
sent to replace it."

reads should not occur again.
In other matters:
*Commissioner Sherrie
Taylor expressed concerns over
the number of warning tickets
that police officers issued. Last
year, from April through June,
152 warning citation were issued
and for the same period this year
414 warning citations were
issued. Taylor said that the dis-
parity leads her to think that offi-
Scers were stopping motorists
without cause.
She also asked Police Chief
Gerald McSwain to look into
creating neighborhood crime


watch programs to help curb the
number of home invasions that
have increased lately. She was
referring to the fact that $62,015
worth of property was stolen
while only $37,287 was recov-
ered.
McSwain said that Lt. Tom
Murray is in the process of
working with the neighborhood
to create block captains and ini-
tiate neighborhood crime watch
programs.
Mayor Keith Dowdell said
that if anyone should complain
about the police department it
should be him. Instead he
defended the officers saying that
many of them are young and that
they make mistakes and there are
"some things" that need to be
worked out. He said the police
department has good intention,
but there is always a bad apple
that can spoil the rest, he said.
"I should be the main one
talking about the police depart-
ment but I'm not. Chief, tell them
that that badge will only get
them so far. Give them all the
training they need -and hope
they'll fall in the right direction,"
Dowdell said.


Commissioners question loan


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

Just where the cit' stands
with the $500.000 loan from
the Capital City Bank has
some commissioners more
than a little worried. It seems
that the loan wja made and
funds ha'e been drawn down
even before the all of the prop-
er documents ha\e been
signed.
City Manager Bill Bogan
called the )et to be agreed
upon documents a rechnicalit%
and said the all that s left is foi
the bank to sign the documents
and return them. "The bank has
my proposal and all they have
to do is sign." Bogan said.
Not quite so fast.
"Before all of the legal
paperwork. I raised some con-
cerns about protecting the ciry
in terms of our pledged
(already promised) funds that
was not in the final paper-
work." said City Attorney Jack
McLean.


"Were you at the table at all
with the manager and the
bank?" asked Commissioner
Shei ie Ta lor. While McLean
said he \vas not physically at
the table e re\ iew\ed the docu-
ments and ga\e the manager
his concerns. Bogan said he
passed those concerns along to
the bank and that the, are
doing w hat the% can to remed.i
the situation.
"We're vulnerable This ciit
is vulnerable and that concerns
me. Are Nou sure the letter
you're sending ill be signed
Sb\ the bank '" Ti\ lor asked
McLean.
The bank loan. he said. is an
unsecured loan and \\ill be
paid off in 18 months. The ciir
did not have to put up an\ col-
lateral for the loan.
McLean admitted after
some pointed questions that
the unsigned documents ha'e
the potential to create a Iabili-
tt for the city.
"Is this ,our neglect or the
irmanaier's neglect. I ant to


know where this lies," Taylor
said.
"My notes reflect that I set
out "cause" clearly (to Bogan)
and my communication with
the mayor was cleai. I called
the mayor and asked that the
document not be signed off on
until all the documents \were in
order,' McLean said.
The discussion ended
abruptly v.hen Commussioner
Derrick Elias said. "the more 1
hear from this, the scarier it
ets."
In another financial matter.
Bogan informed the comrrrs-
sion that the 2006 audit ma\
not be reads by Sept. 30 as
promised.
"We have not sent the docu-
ments (to auditors Watson and
Rice) in a timely manner. We
had an employee in that
department who was not doing
what they should ha\e been
doing," Bogan said.
He said in spite of the delay
he hoped the audit would be
ready b' Sept 30.

go to Frank's, Melinda would be
waiting. And he couldn't go to the
Park Theatre either. Too public! He
ride out to Carroll Lake and watch

understand his fascination with a
half dried up pond. She also
couldn't understand why Daddy

home every night at eight-thirty.
Melinda thought for six months
that Leon was raking- out the barn
every night until nine p.m. But she
loved those stories about them
Atwood boys.....
I think it would have worked
better if the girls hadn't both lived
out on Paris Pike. It was pretty hard
for Leon to take either one home.
He'd go to Melinda's house around
by Highway 22 and he'd drive down
East Cherry Street, hit Main and
then cut over on Paris Avenue which
ran into Paris Pike to pick up Trudy.
The only part I played in all of this
was when one of them called the
house. I was instructed to say to
Trudy, "He just got in bed and a
couple of cows busted loose down
by the Sand Road. He's out there
somewhere rounding them up."
I, of course, told Melinda, "He's
cleaning out the barn."
Melinda had a slew of brothers
and that worried me somewhat. But
shucks, they liked Leon better than
she did. I reckoned he was safe
enough.
And, as it turned out, I was
worried for nothing. All them nights
that Trudy went home early got to
giving her too much time on her
hands. And Kiefer Pennington just
lived one farm up the road. He took
to strolling over about eight forty-
five every night. And I reckon there
were some late night sparks a-
flying.....
You knew there was something in
the wind when Melinda "wasn't
hungry" when Leon finally made it
to the Dairy Bar. It seems that she'd
been sharing some early grease with
Marlin Freeman while Leon was
"raking away his time".
I think they both gave Leon back
"his" ring the same week.
Leon didn't bat an eye or miss a
beat. He declared you couldn't find
a real woman close to home.
Besides, he had met this nice young
girl from over at Como......
I never said he went steady with
two girls forever!
Respectfully,
Little Brother

By JOE FEROLITO

In two hot and humid days of
baseball Quincy couldn't pick up
a win in the Dixie Boys 14-Under
State Tournament played in
Grand Ridge this past week-end.
Quincy posted leads in both
games, but could'nt add to them
or hold off the competition.
Sebring defeated Quincy 23-.
11 Saturday, and Sumter Co.
edged Quincy out of the tourna-
ment with a 9-7 loss on Sunday.
Saturday's game started rough
for Quincy as they fell behind to
Sebring 5-0 in the top of the first
inning. But the inning wound up
belonging to Quincy when they
scored 7 in the bottom of the first.
Key hits by Ryan Wade and Greg
Lee combined with 5 walks given


up by Sebring pitchers allowed
Quincy to put up the 7 spot.
Sebring got a second inning
run before Quincy's Demarcus
Moye and Brandon Bates singled
in runs in the bottom of the inning
and Quincy led 9-6.
Sebring brought in Matthew
Grubb to pitch and he allowed
only one run into the fifth inning
when he walked the bases loaded
with no outs. Sebring, then put
Cory Hoffner in to pitch and he
struck out the next three batters
ending a Quincy threat.
Wade came in relief in the sec-
ond inning for Quincy and he
held Sebring pretty much in
check until tiring in the fifth when
Sebring hammered in 8 runs
highlighted by a three-run double
by Jesse Baker. Brian VanBoveb's


double and Tony BeJongh's triple
then led a 5 run sixth inning
Sebring spurge that helped the
Central Florida tea4 end the
game on the mercy rule.
Grubb was the winning pitch-
er for Sebring. Baker had four
hits as did Evan Lewis for
Sebring. Bates finished with two
hits for Quincy.
Sunday, Quincy led 6-2 over
Sumter County after 2 innings
and was getting good pitching
from Moye.
Sumter Co. scored three runs
in the third, keyed by a Sheldon
Rice single and a Brady Hawkins
double making it 6-5. Sumter Co.
then took a 7-6 lead in the fourth
when Hawkins singled in a pair
of runs.
Moye singled in Makarious


Murray to tie the game in the top
of the sixth before Sumter Co. got
two runs in the sixth's bottom half
to take a 9-7 lead.
Corry James then struck out
the side in the Quincy seventh to
allow Sumter Co. to hold on.
James pitched the last 5
innings for Sumpter Co. allowing
only 2 hits, one run, and fanning
7. Rice had three hits for Sumter
Co. to lead them at the plate.
The Quincy team was made
up of mostly 13 year olds playing
in the 14 year old bracket.
Head coach John McNealy
said.
"We've enjoyed the season. It's
been a good group of players, I
think they can all come back, so,
we'll be looking forward to next
year."

Birds of prey take over library Monday


By BRIAN DEKLE
Times staff writer

An owl hooted, a falcon
screeched and children oohed
and ahhed as a Tallahassee
wildlife rehabilitator shared birds
of prey specimens at the William
A. "Bill" McGill Library
Monday.
Jane Fleitman of Operation
Wild Life Survival (OWLS)
brought two native raptors to the
library to explain to children the
importance of protecting them
and the environment as a whole.
The birds, a southern pere-
grine falcon and a great homed
owl, were both previously
injured and rehabilitated to be
used as educational birds, as their
injuries were too extensive for
them to be released back into the
wild.
"It's like humpty dumpty.
They don't have all their parts
and can't be put back together
again, so we use them to educate
you," Fleitman told the children
and their parents.


"Its up to all of us to start pro-
tecting these animals and the
environment."
Pilermo, a southern peregrine
falcon, was found at an airport in
Miami, where they called him
"runway." His wing was broken,
and, though it is now healed, the
raptor can't fly.
At the time of his discovery,
falcons were endangered because
of the use of a pesticide called
DDT, Fleitman told the crowd.
DDT would make its way into
water bodies from fields and gar-
dens, where fish would absorb it.
Birds of prey would eat the fish
and get infected themselves.
Ingestion of DDT caused brit-
tle eggs, which would break
under the weight of a brooding
mother.
Though DDT is no longer
used in the United States,
Fleitman said, it is still produced
here and shipped to countries in
South America, where many bird
species fly south for the winter.
Peregrine falcons are the
fastest animal on earth, diving


through the air at around 260
miles per hour. When diving, fal-
cons make a fist with their talons
and literally punch their prey out
of the air.
"Have you ever seen a bird
wearing sunglasses?"' Fleitman
asked laughing children.
She explained falcons have
black under their eyes to allow
them to see prey far away, even
in the glare of the sun.
Tiger, a great homed owl, was
the next star of the show. Tiger
was recovered in 1993 as a chick.
He and his three siblings were in
a nest in a tree, which was cut
down.
Though his siblings escaped
unharmed, Tiger was injured in
the fall and can no longer extend
his wings fully enough to take
flight.
Fleitman told the children if
they find an injured animal, get
an adult, keep the animal warm
in a closed box and contact a
wildlife rehabilitator.
For more information, contact
Fleitman at 850-222-2269.

Workforce Plus youth program students graduate from G*STARS


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

Few graduations end under a
tree with a pizza party. But that's
exactly how the 62. graduates
from the Workforce Plus
Gadsden Student Training
Academy for Reaching Success
(G*STARS) Summer Youth
Program ended their second year.
The graduation ceremony was
held Friday morning under the
trees near the Quincy Recreation
Department's tennis courts. I t
was warm but an almost constant
breeze made the graduation
enjoyable.; ;; ; ; ,,,,,
Board of County Commission
Chairman Brenda Holt congratu-
lated the students on completing
the program, which ended June
29. "What you have learned are


called life skills. You now know
what it means to get to work on
time, dress properly, and talk to
customers," she said.
Holt warned that the program
may be downsized next year and
that budget cuts may not be kind
to the program. She urged parents
to attend county budget meetings
and voice their support for the
program. The program is funded
by the county, which gave
$150,000, in partnership with
Tallahassee Community College
and Workforce Plus.
"Spend your money wisely.
Put part of your money in the
ban~iand 'O LIl h .s'uicr_ for a
iain ,,-l.." Hol!t said .
Quineasia Williams, a 10th
grade student at East Gadsden
High School assigned to the
Quincy Police Department, said


she will save part of her earnings
and buy school clothes with the
rest. It was her first job and, she
said, it was a good experience.
"We allowed her to do every-
thing that we did. She was great
to work with and she's as smart as
a whip," said Linda Oliver, QPD
Secretary II.
"You wouldn't think that this
was her first job. She was such a
lady. On her last day, she thanked
the staff for working with her and
told us how much she enjoyed the
experience," said Dee Dee Baker,
QPD Administrative Assistant.
.Because of seventeen-year-old
Mial.Jones's work ethnic, she
landed.t o jobs this summer. "I
already had the G*STARS job
and was working Monday
through Friday at Piggly Wiggly.
I found out that the Taco Bell on


Thomasville Road (in
Tallahassee) had an opening that
was the same schedule as my
stepdad. So, on Saturday and
Sunday, I ride with him to work
over there," she said.
Jones is saving her money for
college and she plans to attend
either Liberty University of
Florida A & M University.
Employers also had nothing'
but good things to say about the
program and the students. Bell &
Bates Home Center employed
three young men who, Cliff Edge
said, were suited for the positions
to which they were assigned and
suited to the home center's atmos-
phere.
"At first I thought it would just
be free labor, it was more than
that. It's a great program and they
did a great job. I thank the


Workforce staff, they matched us
up with people who could do the
job," he said.
He told the students that this
summer and the years ahead of
them a crucial.
"There is dignity in all work
and in all people. You should
derive self esteem from your
work," Edge said.
Christopher Brailey talked his
experience working at the
Havana Health and Fitness Club.
"I learned how to be reliable. I
learned that you do whatever,
your boss tells you, whether it's
picking up gum or mopping the
floor. ,I rleatearnied' a lot,' :he!
said. :".
And learning is exactly what
the program is intended to do for
the kids. Kim Moore, CEO of
Workforce Plus, said the program


could not be successful if busi-
nesses did not give students an
opportunity to work.
The businesses that allowed
G*STARS to work were: ABC

Quincy Comcast subscribers
had to face Friday without
Internet access or cable TV.
A construction company
hired by TDS Telecom to
replace cables inadvertently cut
through a Comcast fiber optic
line near High Bridge Road
around 9:30 a.m. Friday.
"It was a fiber that fed a great
deal of Quincy," Comcast


General Manager K.C.
McWilliams said. "We felt real-
ly bad."
Before contractors hired to
replace cable start the job, they
normally ask other area busi-
nesses that have underground
cables or lines to put locator
markers at the site.
McWilliams said a miscom-
munication about where to
locate the markers caused
Friday's problem.
"There was a miscommuni-


cation error between the two
companies on where to locate
the markers," she said. "It's
unfortunate. I apologize to the
customers we inconvenienced."
Splicing a fiber optic cable
back together takes a bit of time,
McWilliams said. Local
Comcast Internet and cable
service was restored at about
4:30 p.m.
"Fortunately," McWilliams
said,' "this happens very
rarely."

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.

Verse of the weez:
Bless them that curse you, and pray for them which despitefully use you.
Luke 6:28 (KJV)
yoUl wahVt pMe tO pYVr

T for...at
4 That's right Jesus is asking us
to pray for even our worst
enemy. Are you bitter about
an old friend doing you wrong,
someone cheating you out of
money, or maybe something
just hurt your feelings? Do
you feel like a pushover with
certain people? The answer is
to pray for those that you
consider to have hurt you or
as our verse says despitefully
use you. It sounds crazy, but,
'' go ahead and try it. .II
..guarantee that you'll start
liking the other party better
and start to be more
concerned about their well
being than you were before,
and who knows, you might
just findyourself a best friend.

Shari aie one of the oldest creatures on Earth, with fossils
that date back to over 300 million years ago There are approximately
200 to 250 species of sharks in our oceans Most sharks live in wami
or tropical vaters, but some do make their home in cold waters. Sharks
are tliought of as aggressive fish but only about 30 species of sharks
are considered to be dangerous Sharks attack mainly when they 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 4
swimmers. Sharks can be many colors, such as reddish brown,
bronze, metallic blue, gray, or nearly black. They can also have spots (
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,
whict 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.4
Seventy percent of a shark's brain is used for its sense of smell.

It's been a year since you've been gone. I wish
many times I could have said I love you, but
you know I do. As I sit here and celebrate our
birthday, I look up toward heaven and say I
love you many times. We do not saygoodbye
who come to mourn the tears we cry are really
not for you. We are lonely. We are sad, for
when you died, a part ofus died too. It is for '.
us, the living, to endure the aching pain your
passing left behind. Your happiness is finally '
secure. You have peace which none ofus can
find The reason you were chosen can't be
known but we would have kept you longer ifwe could, but God called you
unto His very own. He surely must have thought that you were good. While
missing you will make lift incomplete, the memory of your presence will not
die. And since some happy day again we'll meet. As you proceed, we do not
say goodbye. Your twin, John Im Daniels
