tentative


budget


By BRIAN DEKLE.
Times staff writer
The Gadsden County School Board voted
Tuesday to increase its total property tax levy.
this year by almost $1.5 million, but
homeowners should see little change in their
costs, a school finance official said.
This year's proposed tax levy totals
$11,084,379, a nominal jump from last year's
actual property tax levy of $9,636,542. The,
increase amount results largely from the
number of new homes in Gadsden County, and
the cost to homeowners should change little,

A living miracle

Sixth time the charm for couple


After five miscarriages, little Danielle a blessing for Gretna family


By LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor
Danielle Patrice Williams was born a
little more than a month after her
parents' 26th wedding anniversary.
The couple is still awed that they
were able to have a child when for so
long, they were not.
Because this was Patricia's sixth
pregnancy, they were excited when
they learned she was pregnant but
afraid the pregnancy might not go full-


term after five miscarriages.
When Danielle was born 30 weeks
into, the pregnancy, at 2 pounds, 6.5
ounces, they were overjoyed.
"I just really felt blessed it was
really unbelievable," Patricia said. "I
was asking myself, 'Is this real?'"
Daniel was "Just as happy as I could
be," he said. "There were moments -
the baby getting through the delivery,
getting out of ICU just to see her
progress in the nursery was just great."
Although Danielle had to stay in the


hospital for six weeks, first on a
ventilator and then on oxygen for about
a week, she thrived and came home
weighing 4 pounds, 4 ounces.
"Even the doctors were surprised at
how well she was doing," Patricia said.
Patricia, 44, and Daniel, 46, adopted
two foster children through the
Department of Children and Families'
adoption program. Both children were
close to 2 when they were adopted;

reprieve

City to allow
NetQuincy a
few more
months before
pulling the plug

by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
The Quincy City Commission
decided not to pull the plug on
NetQuincy and added a few more
months to the life of the
beleaguered department.
And a few months might be all
that is needed, according to
Telecommunications Director
Ray Eaton, to turn things around.
Eaton said that while the history
of NetQuincy has not been a
good one in terms of profit, the
future looks much brighter. The
savior is expected'to be the
ability of the city to offer
customers a triple package that
includes telephone service, cable
service, and broadband internet
service at a lower rate than is
offered by current providers.
"What I am proposing to
jumpstart NetQuincy is a mixture
of services. With the changes we
propose there will be no
difference in such companies as
Comcast, Embarq, or Verzion.

Nowa iA" A"rts center alarm proves to be a false one


Three fire trucks and other

damage to the facility nor

Other than the two wooden
doors that had to be chopped

when an alarm indicated water
was leaking into the basement.

told her a power outage or
outages had damaged the

which supports the. sprinkler
system's backup capacity.
Because there is a floor drain in
the room in which the sprinkler
system is housed, there was not a
problem with water backing up in
the basement, she said. But the
leak triggered an alarm to sound
- loudly for close to an hour.


"Thankfully, not very much
water was there. On a concrete
floor, there was not enough tod

said. "The worst part was the

hold celebration


By BRIAN DEKLE
Times staff writer
Local Korean War veterans were
honored Friday in a celebration of
National Korean War Veterans
Armistice Day.
Members of the Gadsden County
Veterans of Foreign Wars arid
Ladies Auxiliary, post 12054,
grilled hamburgers and hot dogs for
the veterans on the courthouse
square.
National Korean War Veterans
Armistice Day was signed into law
by President George W. Bush July
27, 2003.
Upon signing, Bush proclaimed,
"Whe.n North Korean troops
invaded South Korea on June 25,
1950, the United States took
immediate action to defend the
freedom of people unjustly
attacked. Leai. a coalition of 20
other :ries, American and
South k ean troops fought to
advance liberty and opportunity and


to overcome cruelty and repression.
More than 1.7 million Americans
faced forbidding terrain and harsh
combat in battles such as Pork
Chop Hill, Heartbreak Ridge, the
Pusan Perimeter, and the Chosin
Reservoir. Throughout the conflict,
the members of our Armed Forces
demonstrated extraordinary honor,
skill, and courage."
The Military Armistice
Agreement of July 27,;1953, ended
3 years of bitter warfare on the
Korean Peninsula and stopped the
spread of Communism in Korea,
signaling to the world America's
resolve to stand against tyranny and
totalitarian regimes. Fifty years
later, our Nation remains grateful
for the bravery and sacrifice of our
Korean War veterans.. They
defended human freedom, liberated
the oppressed, and selflessly
protected the democratic ideals that
made our Nation strong. Their

The Gadsden County Times August 2,2007 3


Gadsden County WIC celebrates World Breastfeeding Month


Gadsden County WIC
(Supplemental Nutrition
Program for Women, Infants and
Children), will host a World
Breastfeeding Month celebration
for breastfeeding and pregnant
women and their families from 2
to 4 p.m., Thursday, Aug. 9 in
the conference room of the
Gadsden County Health


Department, Quincy. Everyone is
welcome to attend.
The national theme for this
year's event is "Breastfeeding the
First Hour- Welcome Baby
Softly." According to the World
Health Organization, over 1
million lives of babies are saved
worldwide when they are
breastfed within the first hour of


life and continue to be breastfed
without other food or drink until
they are 6 months old.
Mothers are then encouraged to
keep breastfeeding their
children, with the addition of
other nutritious foods, for two
years or more. Within the first
hour of life, babies are especially
alert and need to be given time


to look at, listen to and get to
know their parents.
They have a sharp sense of
smell that guides them to
breastfeed and they especially
like the taste of their mother's
milk. When babies are held
closely with their skin against
their mother's skin, they are
calmed, and their heart rate,


body temperature and breathing
become normal more quickly
than if they were not cuddled in
this way.
In addition to the celebration,
Gadsden County WIC helps
women with breastfeeding by
offering prenatal breastfeeding
classes, assisting with
breastfeeding after the birth of a


baby for as long as mothers need
and giving support to mothers
who return to work and school
while continuing to breastfeed.
For more information, please
call the WIC office at 875-7200,
ext. 332.
Gadsden County WIC is an
equal opportunity employer and
provider.


NETQUINCY from Page 1


NetQuincy is well positioned
because no one else out here is
offering that. We have network
directly to the home and that's not
what the others are offering to a
rural community," Eaton said.
Commissioners, however, still
were not convinced that customers
would abandon the service they
have now for NetQuincy. One way
to entice residents to make the
switch is to inform them that
money spent as a NetQuincy
subscriber comes back to the city
and will have a direct correlation
to lower utility bills and making
other services possible.
"I'm still looking for more
information. You're painting a
rosier picture than it is; we need to
get this off our backs," said
Commissioner Finely Cook. He
added that while a lot of people
might think he doesn't support
NetQuincy, that is not his position.
Cook said he worried about what
will happen if the revenue


BUDGET from


assistant superintendent of
finance, told the board Tuesday.
The typical homeowner will
have a two percent decrease in
cost if his or her property
evaluation has not changed, Wood
added.
A portion of the tax levy is
required under state law in order
for the school board to receive
$27,292,096 in state education
grants. This required portion has
increased by 7.56 percent and
represents approximately seven-
tenths of the total proposed taxes.


projections do not meet
expectations.
One of the reasons NetQuincy
has not brought in the projected
revenues can be attributed to at
least three reasons:
First, there were billing problems
for many customers. City Attorney
Jack McLean said that hundreds of
people received NetQuincy
services but because they didn't get
billed for months, they didn't pay.
When they finally got a bill some
of the arrears were hundreds of
dollars. Instead of paying the bill,
many opted to drop the service
and move to another provider,
leaving the city without payment
and taking their business
elsewhere.
Secondly, the city has
agreements with Arbor Crest
Apartments as well as Magnolia ,
Forest. Both developments have
not seen the occupancy they
projected, which makes the city's
subscriber base lower than


expected.
Third, the city has to step up its
marketing plan to regain old
customers and attract new ones. At
one point NetQuincy serviced
more than 1,200 customers; that
number has dwindled to less than
400.
Eaton isn't lamenting the loss of
customers because he expects
even more when the city is ready,
in about eight weeks, to offer
telephone service. NetQuincy
officials are also banking on the
fact that because TDS Telcom has
closed its customer service office
to walk-in traffic, people will feel
more comfortable paying their
bills at the customerr service
window at City Hall where they
currently make utility payments.
The cost to get the telephone
system installed will be about
$119,000 which will be more than
adequately covered by the money
left in the bond that was initially
issued for the entire


telecommunications project.
A timetable was also presented
to commissioners by Eaton for the
start times:
*County Internet Project
(including Gretna) will be
installed within the City Limits in
three weeks and n Havana and
Chattahoocheee within 120 days.
*Digital Phone Service installed
in in eight weeks.
*Cell Phone and Satellite
Broadband Service installed in
four weeks.
*Cable TV Video installed in ten
weeks.
*Circle Drive and Strong Road
ready in four weeks.
*Northeast City of Quincy ready
in two weeks.
Despite the fact that the city has
not made the money projected
three years ago, there has been
some success since 2006. The
buildout (for equipment) has been
completed in Magnolia Forest and
the city also successfully bidded to


provide the county's Information
Technology Services. The bid
award is being contested, but
Eaton said he has every reason to
believe the city will prevail.
The Telecommunication
department has also been
successful in negotiating with
partners to provide for telephone
services, cable TV, cell phone, and
satellite services. But
commissioners may have been
most impressed when Eaton
reported that the department has
implemented financial control
changes and processes as well as
initiating a successful collections
process.
However, Commissioner Andy
Gay didn't seem convinced that
Telecommunications is going to be
the city's financial shining star.
"Through the years, this thing
has not been what we wanted it to'
be. Mr. Eaton and Mr. Bogan have
a vision and I want to see how
much it will cost us to carry their


vision out," Gay said.
While Commissioner Derrick
Elias said he wasn't ready to
abandon the telecommunications'
projects, he wanted a little more
clarity.
"All along I have been on board
with telecommunications. I have
heard commissioners up here
argue for and against it. I still
believe it can offset the revenue
issue if we can stay the course and
present a viable plan. There has to
be a marketing plan and a strategy
plan," Elias said. He also advised
Eaton and Bogan that they should
be together when making their
presentations.
Commisisoner Cook was a little
more skeptical.
"I'm on board but believe me, I
don't see it. I want this thing to
work and believe me I'm not
trying to kill it. You're the only
man who appears to be able to
make it work. You have been
honest with us," he told Eaton.

The remainder of the taxes is
proposed solely at the discretion
of the school board.
Among the remainder are capital
outlay taxes. The school board
voted to continue a two-mill
property tax for this portion,
which will generate approximately
$2,736,173, according to Wood.
The district will use capital
outlay money for various projects
including replacement of climate
control equipment, correction of
safety issues, renovation of
existing buildings, repairs in


school cafeterias, school bus
purchases, furniture, equipment,
software and more.
The school board also voted
Tuesday to adopt a tentative
budget for the 2007-2008 school
year. The tentative budget projects
around $61.5 million in total
expenditures and estimates around
$64 million in total revenue.
The district's proposed operating
expenditures are 9.2 percent more
than last year's total operating
expenditures," Wood told the
board.


In other action Tuesday:
-On a 3-2 vote, the school board
approved eight administrator
salaries. The salaries reflect an
increase in salary schedules (or
salary range) for the
administrators in 2007-2008.
School Board members Charlie
Frost and Roger Milton voted
"nay" on the item, voicing
concerns about increasing salaries
for a few people, when budget
constraints already make prospects
salary increases for most district
employees difficult, if not


impossible.
Frost said if the district can
afford to increase salaries for a
certain group of people, it should
try to give other employees raises,
as well.
Milton said while he thinks all of
the eight administrators on the
salary increase list are worthy of
raises, the board should wait until
the budget is finalized to see
where raises are possible.
After the item was approved,
Superintendent Reginald James
said he believes all employees


deserve a raise, and he would
never pick any one person or
group to receive a raise over
another.
He added Gadsden County
teachers have received two raises
since he became superintendent;
these raises, he said, were the first
substantial raises local teachers
have gotten in years.
-The board voted to foot the bill
for higher premiums this year on
employee health insurance. The
premium increases amount to
$252,997.


MIRACLE from


Vicki is now 18 and Demetrius,

The couple was halfway
through a required DCF
parenting class with plans to
adopt a third child when Patricia
became pregnant.
Although she was able to work
throughout the pregnancy, she
followed her doctor's
instructions.
"She went to the doctor early
and made sure she did what the
doctor told her to do," Daniel
said.
That included limiting salt,

since she has high blood pressure
and is prone to preeclampsia,
getting plenty of rest and taking
prenatal vitamins.
Danielle was born Jan. 28. The
couple didn't tell a soul they were
expecting until Patricia was put
in the hospital after she
developed preeclampsia, afraid
this pregnancy, too, would end
badly.
Instead, Patricia was able to
leave the hospital with a daughter
whose name she picked out 15
years ago.
"Everybody thought she should


be named 'Miracle,'" Patricia said
with a smile. "But I had written
down that name in a book 15
years ago I thought it was pretty
and I always thought if I had a
daughter, that's what I'd name
her."
.The couple is still exuberant
over their latest family addition,
who is now six months old and
weighs 13 pounds.
Exuberant, and grateful.
"We learned to keep our faith in
the Lord," Daniel said. "What he
promises, he will deliver. Even if
it's 26 years down the road."

I call upon all Americans to
observe this day with appropriate

Contemplation



Appreciation seems lacking

this time of year


School will be starting in a few weeks
and the signs of the new year are
everywhere from Sunday sale papers to
pleas to buy children everything from
pencils and paper to new school outfits.
For the past few years I have been a one of
the ones who has collected school supplies
and helped throw parties all in an effort to
help "get students of to a good start."
A few nights ago, I was thinking about
that after I got a call from a woman who
wanted $100 to buy school supplies for
children in her neighborhood. I asked her
why the children didn't participate in some
of the already established giveaways. The
children, it seems, in her neighborhood
found it too inconvenient to leave home to
get the free pencils, paper, backpacks, etc.
That got me to wondering if parents and
students really appreciate things they get
for free. After all, they've put absolutely
nothing into acquiring these items. That's
why I see new backpacksleft around on
the ground, paper strewn everywhere and
other signs of non-appreciation.
There were four of us in my family in
middle and high school at the same time.
Nobody was giving away anything and my
parents has to buy every sheet of paper,
every tablet, every ruler, every protractor,
and whatever we needed for school.
Nothing was left around, and we used both
sides of a sheet of paper too. I know that
was a while ago, but people are still
people. I can tell you that we weren't
wasteful about school supplies because
they had "to last."
These giveaways started out as a good
cause. The intent was to help students


whose parents were unable or unwilling to
buy them school supplies. That has gone
from helping the needy to giving to the
greedy. I think a lot of it is simply a matter
of priorities. It's all a matter of what's
important to you at the time. If your child
needs school supplies and you decide to
take a trip to Biloxi to try your hand at the
slot machines, then that is more important
to you than your child.
When I hear someone talk about "those
poor, poor people in Gadsden County," I
am compelled to set the record straight. In
many instances, it's a matter of what's
important. I met a young man a few years
ago who was wearing a nice jacket. I don't
know what they are called officially but I
will call them NASCAR jackets because
they have the logos of a several products.
The young man wearing the jacket said
he was in 10th grade and that the jacket
cost around $380. The thing wasn't even
lined. No doubt his parents wanted him to
have what other children were sporting and
maybe they had that kind of money. But
there are people who don't have that kind
of disposable income. And they make
choices based on other people. But does
somebody else's name on your backside
mean that you are a better person?
When a high percentage of students in
our schools are on free or reduced lunch
and the parents line up around the block
for free school supplies, there is obviously
a need for help. But I wonder how much of
the need is fulfilled because people won't
buy what their children need because
they're waiting for someone to give it to
them? Or rather, bring it to them.


.unker down

with

IKCes


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


"A wop-bop-a-loo-bop A-

lop-bam boom!"


A line from an old Chuck Berry tune hit
me from out of the blue, "as long as I've
got a dime the music won't ever stop!"
You may not remember Chuck but he had a
string of rock and roll hits in the mid-fifties
and early sixties. He was loud, distinctive
and hip. He introduced me to Beethoven
and "Sweet Little Sixteen". We both tried
to get in touch with Marie in Memphis, one
of us caught "Maybellene" at the top of the
.hill and "Johnny B. Goode" lived just
down the street from me! The Beatles and
the "yeah, yeah, yeah" invasion slowed his
(and many other rock and roller's) career.
But his point was well taken. Music has
provided a life-long back drop for a whole
passel of us. And it's not about whether
you can sing or play an instrument. It was
the music that moved us. And the
memories that are entwined with each
song ....
I can remember like yesterday sitting up
on Bump Martin's front porch and listening
to him saw-down on "Under the Double
Eagle" and "Turkey in the Straw". If one of
the Johnson brothers happened by with
their old Martin guitar, we'd all be singing
"Possum up a persimmon tree, Raccoon on
the ground, Raccoon said you son of a gun,
shake them 'simmons' down, boy, shake
them 'simmons' down!"
It might not have been Caregie Hall
stuff, but this was years before Little
Richard and Elvis came along. And in our
modest corer of the universe it beat the
heck out of milking cows, mucking out the
barn or trying to think of something
intelligent to say to Ruth Ann Wiley.
The first "professional" song I remember
tapping along with was from the Grand Ole
Opry. We'd gather around that old stand up
Zenith radio "each and every" Saturday
night and listen to the menagerie of artists
that occupied center stage. The song that
leaped out at me was "Take An Old Cold
Tater and Wait". I don't know if it was
Little Jimmy Dickens' ringing rendition or
the fact that I had lived out the lyrics that
made it "rise above" the rest. I hope it was
neither a commentary on the status of the
Opry or a harbinger of my musical taste.
And I certainly didn't mean to slight Red
Foley, Ernest Tubb or the Duke of
Paducah.


It was just the one I liked! I didn't have a
dime back then, but Chuck's message was
really about the song in your heart.
We hadn't been in the first grade hardly
longer than a week when Miss Carolyn set
in to teaching us "God Bless America".
We'd say the pledge of allegiance and then
sing about the light from above shinning on
the mountains and prairies and oceans
white with foam. Me and Ricky Lynn sang
out especially loud because we figured it
was about as close to an ocean as we'd
ever come.
It never dawned on any of us that God
wasn't going to do nothing but bless
America forever.....
The very next year it was Doris Day. I
had no clue who she was. But she had one
song that Miss Dorothy sure liked. She'd
direct the whole class, near 'bout on a daily
basis, to stand up and sing, "Cue sera sera,
whatever will be will be, The future is not
ours to see, Cue, sera.sera...." I couldn't
spell it correctly, then or now, but I still
remember it.....half a century later!
One year we did a play based on the song
"This Land is Your Land". We wouldn't
have known Woody Guthrie if he had
walked in the class room. We thought Ike
wrote the song. I was a redwood tree. It
took a fair amount of acting. I had to stand
real tall and not move a muscle or say a
word.
There was a bunch of us over at Millicent
Blackburn's grandmother's house on
Magnolia Street the summer we graduated
from junior high. I don't remember exactly
how me and Millicent ended up out on the
porch alone. But she kissed me right on the
mouth while Percy Faith's "Theme from a
Summer Place" was drifting through the
window. I haven't seen or heard from
Millicent since she moved to Memphis
later that year. But every time I hear that
song I am transported, as if by magic, back
to a warm July night in 1961.
I worked at a swimming pool during the
summers of my high school years. And the
records blaring out of those big speakers
tied underneath the high diving board were

For those in need, there's help

this school year


Every year, I'm slightly astounded by the
community support for parents needing a
little extra help getting school supplies
together for their kids as the new school year
approaches.
This year is no different. There are school
supply giveaways planned in Chattahoochee,
Havana and Quincy, as well as information
available for parents of children of all grades.
Once again this year, the James A. Shanks
Class of '82 is planning a book bag and
school supply giveaway. It will take place
Aug. 4 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Carter
Parramore Academy.
At the same location and on the same day,
from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., the Gadsden County
School Board will sponsor a district-wide
parent expo, which will feature information
about parents' options and Opportunity
Scholarships.
Providers of supplemental education
services will also be on site to answer
questions, and parents and students will have
an opportunity to meet Schools
Superintendent Reggie James and School
Board members.
And parents can pickup information about
the 2007-2008 school year from district staff,
agencies, special program coordinators and
school principals.
"It's going to be a big, festive occasion,"
said Audrey Lewis-Potter, coordinator of
Parent Services for the school district.

The following Saturday, Aug. 11, two
school supply give aways are planned, one in
Chattahoochee and one in Havana.
In Chattahoochee, members of the Masonic
Lodge No. 302 and the Golden Angels
Chapter No. 619 are planning their third
annual back-to-school picnic and school
supply giveaway from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Aug.
11 at the Southside Community Center in
Chattahoochee.
The two local groups partners with the
National Association of Blacks in Criminal
Justice, Florida Panhandle Chapter, and
Keefe Supply Company is sponsoring the
event.
"This year, we hope to supply 150 kids
with school supplies and the first 50 kids
with book bags," said Masonic Lodge
member James Moultry. "We hope to
provide school supplies for elementary,
middle school and high school students."
Organizers invited Sheriff Morris Young
and the superintendent of schools to speak at
the event, as their schedules permit, and will
provide food, music and games to attendees.
To donate school supplies for the
giveaway, contact Moultry at 442-6936 or
Leroy McRae at 627-2490.
On that same day in Havana, several
churches will offer school supplies to area
children. The giveaway will be at New
Jerusalem Missionary Baptist Church from 9
a.m. to 1 p.m.

Editor:

I finally got the time to listen to some of the audio CD
from the Gadsden County Commissioners meeting held
on 6/5/07. On the tape, I believe it was Dixon that said in
regard to the old hospital words to the effect of...that the
man Croley replaced had his hand in the till...everybody
was making money but the county...the man to our right,
the lawyer, was working for the hospital corporation 20
minutes after the hospital went bankrupt...means it was
an inside job... this is not conjecture...we had letters from
Richmond... threatened to take him to the bar... he is not
supposed to play both sides of the road...someone had
their hand in kitty.
I believe if there is proof of wrong doing that county
residents deserve to know about it. If there is not proof,
then these accusations should be stopped.
Maybe I heard it wrong. I invite county residents to get a
copy of this meeting. I will loan my copies of excerpts or
the whole meeting out.

The

miracle of

Donna Joy

By Daniel J. Vance

Over the years I've read a lot
of news items about people
with disabilities. One
newspaper report on Donna
Joy and Lori Vance, of
Rogersville, Tennessee,
especially caught my eye
because of the last name.
"When I was seven-months
pregnant with (Donna Joy), an
obstetrician said her condition
was 'completely incompatible'
with life," said 42-year-old
Lori Vance in a telephone
interview. Though doctors
were urging her to abort late-
term because they thought the
unborn child would die
outside the womb, Vance
gave birth anyway in
November 1991.
Donna Joy was missing over
half her brain, and what was
left was "small and wrinkled,
abnormally disfigured," said
Vance. Donna Joy had
cerebral palsy,
holoprosencephaly,
hydrocephalus, and arnold-
chiari malformation. At birth
her head was swollen, and
brain tissue protruded through
a small hole in her head.
"And yet she was absolutely
gorgeous," said Vance.
Doctors told Vance that
Donna Joy didn't have any
speech center, independent
thought processing center,
memory, or gross and fine
motor abilities. The) said she
had a damaged visual center.
To keep her alive that first
year, Vance fed Donna Joy
formula drop by drop through
a syringe.
What became of Donna Joy
sixteen years later? Said Lori
Vance, "She just won an
honorary title in a beauty
contest and was Honorary
Miss Fourth of July
Rogersville Princess. She
talks almost constantly, and is
quite ambulatory, even taking
track medals in the Tennessee
Special Olympics."
Donna Joy is mainstreamed
at public school for art,
music, and physical
education. According to
Vance, Donna Joy is the
highest functioning special
education student at her
Rogersville school, and often
is called upon to help other
students.
Said Vance, "You have to
understand how amazing this
is, especially when you meet
her and she greets you with a
hug. It is simply not logical
for a child to succeed with
this kind of damaged brain
stem and so little brain
available."
Doctors have absolutely no
explanation for how or why
Donna Joy has survived, let
alone flourished. Before her,
no child with her condition
had even lived beyond age
two.
The Vances became well-
known in 1997 when Lori
testified before Congress in
support of the Partial Birth
Abortion Ban Act, and they
were present in 2003 at the
Act's signing. Vance advises
women facing similar
circumstances to continue on
with their pregnancy.

City reaffirms relationship with local access channel


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

If it's not broken, don't fix it was
the message Quincy City
Commissioners sent to Bill Bogan,
city manager concerning the
relationship the city has with Jim
Southerland of WQTN, the city's
Government Access Channel.
The workshop was suggested two
weeks ago during a regular meeting
after Southerland said he has been
told to attend staff meetings, was no
longer programming the network,
and that he was to report to
Telecommunications Director Ray
Eaton. Commissioners chose a
workshop forum to iron out what
seemed, at first, like a problem.
Southerland approached the city
commission in 2002 about
activating the Government Access
Channel. A GAC is. a free channel
donated by cable providers as a
public service to keep citizens


informed. Channel 13 was
designated. With approval of the
commission, Southerland
purchased and installed the
necessary equipment to get the
channel off the ground.
"The purpose was to deliver
diverse programming of local
interest to the citizens, get input
from local citizens and
organizations of the community.
We've been successful with our
intended purpose at WQTN. I could
have called it anything I wanted to
call it, but because it is community,
I called it the Quincy. Television
Network," Southerland said.
Not only does he cover
commission meetings, Southerland
said, he also covers other
community events that he feels will
be of interest to the community on
his own. From the Black History
Parade and Festival to
WalkAmerica he said he hears
about events and not only uses his


equipment and time to cover the
events, but he also edits, produces
and aires the programs. For the first
three years, he got no pay.
"Becasue there isn't enough
positive things to air for 24-7, so I
started airing the Annenberg Series
(science, math, and hsitory) which
are produced by Harvard University
and the Smithsonian Institute," he
said.
Yes, they air six hour at a time and
are them replayed, Southerland said
that it better that no programming.
Bogan said he wanted the station
to offer more local programming
but that he has been overall, happy
with Southerland and WQTN. He
said he wanted to city to have more
input into what was aired and that's
where the locally generated
program "Community Focus"
comes into, which is produced by
Bogan's assistant Marti Johnson.
Southerland made several
recommendations which hwe


commisison accepted:
*Maintain the current
management structure with the
Program Director (Southerland)
working under the direction of the
Commissioners.
*Develop an active WQTN
Community Advisory Board
Committee to work with the
Program Direector with periodic
reports made to Commissioners.
Each commissioner will appoint a
representative from their district.
Commissioners decided to not
appoint a board but to allow Bogan
to appoint a staff member to work
with Southerland. Southerland will
make a monthly report to the
commission.
*Authorize the relocation of the
satellite receiver from the substation
to City Hall to enhance
programming capabilities.
*Connect with the city's generator
so that broadcasting is possible
during power outages.


City sets village rate;


no change again


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

The City of Quincy voted Tuesday night, during a special
meeting, to set the millage rate at 2.75 mills. The city's rate has
not changed in 20 yeais.
While the state told other municipalities to roll back he mill-
age rate, Quincy was spared. If commissioners want to increase
the millage rate this eyar, they must hold a special election and
the otherss \ ill decide if they would like to pay a higher rate.
"You all know that's not going to happen," said Mayor Keith
Dowdell.


1-10 crash leads to foot chase, arrest for Alabama man


By LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor

An Alabama man who
crashed his car into a pickup
truck while driving west in the
eastbound lane of Interstate 10
near Chattahoochee didn't get
far when he fled from the scene


on foot.
Authorities arrested Gerald
Kennedy, 49, of Theodore, Ala.,
on charges of driving under the
influence with property damage
and injury and leaving the
scene of a crash .Tuesday
around 8:36 p.m. after K-9
units from the Gadsden County


Sheriff's Office Apalachee
Correctional Institute tracked
him into the woods off I-10.
According to Florida
Highway Patrol reports,
Kennedy was driving a 1989
Toyota west in the inside, east-
bound lane of I-10 when he
approached a 2001 Nissan pick-


up truck driven by 25-year-old
Kirby Whitehead of Port
Orange head on.
Whitehead steered left to
avoid a head on collision and
Kennedy's car struck the right
front side of his truck.
Kennedy's car came to a rest in
the median and he fled the


scene on foot, running into a
wooded area.
He was apprehended "within
minutes," FHP reports say, after
GCSO and ACI K-9 units
responded and tracked him
down.
Gadsden County Emergency
Medical Services responded to


the scene.
Whitehead and a passenger
in his car, Justine Murray of
Ormond Beach, were trans-
ported to Tallahassee
Memorial Hospital with minor
injuries. Kennedy was also
transported to TMH with
minor injuries.


Quincy native named head of physicians' group


One of Tallahassee's own
family physicians, Cyneetha
Strong, M.D., is the newly elect-
ed 42nd President of the Florida
Academy of Family Physicians
(FAFP), which represents the
state's m6re than 4,000 practic-
ing family physicians, residents
in training and medical students.,
In her new role, Dr. Strong will
promote the programs and serv-
ices of FAFP and advocate on
behalf of its members and the
rights of all Floridians for quali-
ty, affordable health care.
"Our Organization has land-
ed a treasure in having Dr.
Strong serve as its leader," says
Alma Littles, M.D., senior asso-
ciate dean of Florida State
University's College of
Medicine and past president of
FAFP. "She is incredibly active
in her community-both in her
capacity as a doctor and an
advocate. At least two in Five
Florida residents lack access to
basic healthcare, and Dr. Strong
shares FAFP's vision to change.


staggering statistics like this."
Originally from Quincy, Dr.
Strong will become the second
president of the academy from
her hometown. She will also be
the second female African-
American president and the sec-
ond James A. Shanks High
School graduate to hold the
position. As a Family Medicine
Ambassador to the Florida
Legislature, Dr. Strong is com-
mitted to the continuous
improvement of the family
healthcare through government
initiative. In Sept. 2006, she


attended America's Health
"Rally on Capitol Hill" on
behalf of Florida, where she
urged federal candidates to
explain how they would
improve the nations healthcare
system.
Dr. Strong began her medical
career at the University of
Florida's. College of Medicine,
where she received a degree in
1991. She finished her educa-
tion at the Tallahassee Memorial
Regional Medical Center
Family Residence Program: and
then made an impact on the-
underserved populations of
Gadsden County at the Quincy's
Tallahassee Memorial Family
Practice. Dr. Strong has been
serving the Tallahassee commu-
nity for fifteen years, most
recently in group practice at
Patients' First. A member of
many civic associations, she is a
national speaker on healthcare
issues and is very involved in
the Bethel Missionary Baptist
Church.


Family physicians diagnose
almost 90 percent of all patient
problems, including biological
and mental health concerns.
Parallel to Dr. Strong's career,
family physicians supply 58 per-
cent of the physician population
in isolated rural areas, where 21
percent of population lives.
Research has shown that com-
munities with primary care-
based health systems (such as
those orchestrated by family
physicians like Dr. Strong) have
lower rates of mortality caused
by cardiovascular and. pul-
monary disease, use emergency
departments and hospitals less,
require fewer tests, use less
medication and have lower care-
related costs. Most importantly,
communities with this type of
health system have higher
patient satisfaction.

Strong's new role and to find out

Times Editor

A 44-year-old Hispanic
man, Eugenio Renteria Soto,
was arrested late Friday night
and charged with identity theft,
possession of a firearm, entic-
ing children, and simple bat-
tery.
According to a report
released by the Quincy Police
Department, Soto who was
known as Salvador, went into
Gadsden Arms Apartments and
approached several children


telling them that his van had
broken down and he needed
help.
The children told authori-
ties that they became suspi-
cious after Soto touched them
on the shoulder in an effort to
push them away from the com-
plex.
They said Soto was acting
strange and left the area but
only went across the street into
a blue house. Witnesses said
they saw Soto come out of the
house with a rifle in his hands
and that they heard noises con-


sistent with loading a gun and
that the sound was one of
"racking a round in the cham-
ber."
When police arrived Soto
came out of the house holding
the rifle and refused to put it
on the ground when requested.
He subsequently was
taken into custody but initially
gave authorities fake identifi-
cation. He originally told
police that his name was
Salvador Alvarez but a check
of the the county jail's photo
files revealed that Soto was not


Alvarez.
He then admitted that
Alvarez was killed some time
ago in a Mexico in an accident
and he took his identity. Soto,
who is in the United States
illegally, was working for
Cumbie Concrete Services in
Tallahassee and had several
paycheck stubs made out to
Alvarez.
Soto remains in the
Gadsden County Jail and
.authorities have still not been
able to determine whether Soto
is his real name.

In last week's article on Workforce Plus Program, Cliff Edge was quoted as saying: "At first
I thought it was just free labor, it was more than that. It's a great program and they did a good job. I
thank the Workforce staff, they matched us up with people who could do the job." Edge said he was
incorrectly quoted. He said his statement was:" We went into it thinking it would be more than free
labor but an opportunity to mentor."

6 The Gadsden County Times August 2,2007


Choir builds character in local students


By BRIAN DEKLE
Times staff writer

Music performance doubles
as character education in a
Gadsden County after-school
and summer program.
Over 100 local students
form the Communities in
Schools of Gadsden County
choir, and program officials say
the young singers have reaped
tremendous benefits from per-
forming in the ensemble.
"We decided we wanted to
form a choir to help with char-
acter, exposure. We did that,
and, my, how it has helped the
kids coming to the after school
program and the summer pro-
gram," Latrenda Goldwire, pro-
gram director, said.
Though Communities in
Schools' primary objective is to
aid students in academics,
Goldwire said she and other
program leaders wanted to give
youngsters something more, so
they created the choir last year.
"We decided we needed
something else for these kids
other than just education,
because we don't want to burn
them out. They're in school all
day, then they come to the after
school program; that's more
education. We said, 'now what
can we do to make it more
exciting for them?' We came up


with a choir," she said.
Music, Goldwire said, helps
students with behavior and atti-
tudes, and the choir has
improved student attendance in
the program. She added stu-
dents like to showcase their tal-
ents, and the choir enables them
to do just that in community
performances.
So far the choir has per-
formed at the Black History
Parade, the East Gadsden High
School gospel chorus end-of-
the-year banquet, George
Munroe Elementary School,
Stewart Street Elementary
School and other locations and
events in Gadsden County.
The choir practices every
Wednesday to prepare for per-
formances, under the direction
of several local music leaders.
Gospel and other inspirational
music makes up the bulk of the
choir's repetoire.
Goldwire said they choose
music that will help instill con-
fidence and other positive val-
ues in students.
"We try to instill in our kids,
whatever you put your mind,
heart and soul to, you can do it,
no matter what the adversities
are. If you believe it, you can
achieve it," she said.
Several students have
branched out as soloists in the
choir. Goldwire said they're


always willing to let kids try a
solo.
The choir is just one part of
Communities in Schools' over-
all mission.


"Our focus is to not only
educate, but build relationships
with parents, families and stu-
dents. We can't just educate and
help the children; it's a family


thing. We want to have that
relationship, and we want these
kids to follow us from third
grade to graduation. And if
we're part of their lives starting


out, we can track them. We
know if they're not doing
things they should be. We can
sit down and counsel them,"
Goldwire said.

A group of Gadsden County
early childhood development
specialists hopes to use the
resources of the entire village
in giving children from infant-
hood to 5 the best start possible.
Several agencies are repre-
sented on the Gadsden County
Whole Child Planning
Committee, which hopes to
bring a program that has proven
beneficial in. Leon County to
Gadsden County.
"The Whole Child program
was actually developed through
the Lawton Chiles
Foundation," said Sharon
Franklin, chairwoman of the
local Whole Child Planning
Committee. "(State. Rep.)
Loranne Ausley and (Gadsden
County native and Whole Child
project coordinator for the
Lawton Chiles Foundation) Ed
Feaver were instrumental in
bringing this to Gadsden
County. Their vision is that
every county adopts this."
Whole Child is based on the


principle that children living in
places where there is a commu-
nitywide effort to give them the
best start possible thrive and
acquire social skills necessary
to grow into good citizens as
well as developing emotional
strength and good physical and
mental health.
The program outlines six
dimensions of a whole child:
Physical and mental health, a
safe and nurturing environ-
ment, economic stability, quali-
ty education, social interaction
and competence and spiritual
foundation and strength.
"This is an effort to build a
community that will address
those six dimensions," Franklin
said.
"It is primarily for children
0-5. We're just getting started
in Gadsden County and we
have to work together to
include not just agencies but
business and faith-based part-
ners. It's going to be really,
really good as far as resources
go."
The Big Bend United Way
recently gave the county $7,000


to get the program on its feet.
"The money was awarded to
the county.
The County Commission
decided to let the Health
Council decide how the money
should be used and the Health
Council decided the .money
should be used to create a
Whole Child program," said
Max Martinez, director of the
Gadsden Health Council. "The
money given to the county will
be used to hire a part-time
employee to help coordinate
the project."
One of Whole Child's
biggest projects is establishing
a website that will give parents
instant access to the resources
they need, Franklin said.
"This is a website that will
enable families to complete a
profile. Whatever they put in
their profile as to the needs and
concerns of the family will be
matched to the proper agency
or person," she said.
For more information about
the Gadsden County Whole
Child program, call Franklin at

It is a remarkable feat for a
community theatre to survive ten
years. It is truly unbelievable for
a theatre to thrive for 25 years, yet
Quincy Music Theatre has done
just that.
This season marks QMT's sil-
ver anniversary, and to celebrate
QMT turns back to its roots in the
Gadsden County community.
Auditions will be at 7 p.m., Aug.
13 and 14 for QMT's opening
show, "Fiddler on the Roof."
"We're trying to cast as many
of Gadsden County's talented cit-
izens to celebrate QMT's success.
I'm hoping that even those folks
who either haven't been on stage
for a while or just want to give it
a try will come out to audition.
I'm asking everyone to bring a

song that they feel comfortable
singing and the sheet music if
they have it,' said Kevin Scott
Goodson, QMT's managing
director and stage director for the
production.
"I want to cast as many people
in our community that want to
have some fun. For QMT, it's
becoming about the experience of
acting and working with theatre,
not about how many tickets we
sell or whether someone from


Tallahassee says we're good.

We'll be amazing because we care
and are having a good time. I just
wish everyone could experience
being on stage once in their life. I
also have a fun time with audi-
tions so the scary part is really not
that scary!"
When asked about the show
Kevin said, 'Fiddler' is about
home. It's about how home
changes with time, and, yet, it's
family and friends that make


home a constant. I can't think of a
better show to start QMT's
anniversary season. It's the per-
fect appetizer for our new direc-
tion and purpose. And, personal-
ly, it has a great deal of meaning
to me because of the many
friends I've made in this commu-
nity. It makes it special."
Auditions for "Fiddler on the
Roof' will be at 7 p.m., Aug. 13
and 14 at the Leaf Theatre, 118 E.
Washington St. in Quincy.

School officials get whiff of 'new

school smell' at new WGHS


School board approves new

building as school at meeting


Gadsden County School District officials smile as they walk through the halls of the new West

Timws staff writer

Gadsden County School offi-
cials got a whiff of that "new
school smell" Tuesday as they
toured the recently completed
new West Gadsden High
School.
The school board voted
Tuesday night at a regular board
meeting to give district building
officials the go ahead to move
in and open the schools' doors
'for classes in August.
As of June 22, the WGHS
job was "substantially complet-
ed," meaning the facility is
ready for classes to start,
although some minor punch-out
items still need to be complet-
ed," Wayne Shepard, Gadsden
County School building direc-
tor, told school board members


at a walk-through last Tuesday
afternoon.
AJAX Building, Inc., of
Tallahassee, the contractors in
charge of the project, will not
receive their final check until
WGHS is 100 percent complete,
Shepard told board members
Tuesday night.
The 14-month, $20 million
project is completed on time
and within budget, Shepard
said. "I have no major problems
with anything (at WGHS), and I
know AJAX will be with us all
the way until we get moved in,"
Shepard said.
School Board member
Charlie Frost concurred, saying
the WGHS job has been the
"easiest project" he's ever been
involved with.
The new WGHS building
has a 600-person capacity, and


its new gym seats 750.
Currently, 533 students are
enrolled at WGHS for the
upcoming school year, Joe
Lewis, WGHS principal, said.
In other business Tuesday
night:
-James recognized Dr. David
Coley as the new director of '
secondary education of the
Gadsden County school district.
-The board voted unani-
mously to defer action that
called for the board to foot the
bill for health insurance premi-
um increases for school district
employees. The item will be
brought back to the board at the
July 31 tentative budget hear-
ing.
-The board approved a poli-
cy that will not allow school
meals to be served to adults in
school cafeterias who are not
teachers, administrators, custo-
dians or other district employ-
ees-except for special occasion
as determined by the school
principal.


School administrators complete "leadership boot camp" this week


By BRIAN DEKLE
Times staff writer
Gadsden County school
administrators completed a veri-
table "boot camp" this week,
training for action this year in
local schools.
The 2007 Gadsden County
School District Administrator
Institute is designed to help
administrators "sharpen their
instructional leadership skills,"
Gadsden County School
Superintendent Reginald James
said.
The intense three-day institute
is mandatory for all principals,
assistant principals and teachers
on special assignment in Gadsden


County.
From 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Monday through Wednesday,
administrators attended sessions
that covered nearly every area of
school leadership.
"The sole purpose is preparing
our seasoned and new adminis-
trators for the upcoming school
year. We just want to make sure
they are fully aware of their
responsibilities and they're pre-
pared. We're offering them the
tools they need to handle every
issue that will be thrown at them,
from FTE counts to school lunch
to classroom walkthroughs and
evaluations to employee disci-
pline. We just want to cover the
gamut to make sure our principals


are, strong, effective, successful
leaders in the upcoming school
year," Shaia Beckwith-James,
Gadsden County schools public
information officer, said.
"It's the equivalent to Marine
boot camp. Only the best and
brightest can be principals, and
we're giving them the weapons
they need."
District leaders and outside
experts conduct the training ses-
sions, and organizers say they
hope everything learned in the
sessions will lead to increased
student achievement..
Many of the sessions utilize
creative strategies to make
administrators more effective
leaders. For instance, a session

The tournament attracted 18 4-
man teams that was played with a
select a shot format. Each team
was to consist of an A,B,C, and D

Although the competition was
tough and.the course played even

Todd Pierce, head coach for
the varsity baseball team, said,
"I'm just overwhelmed at the
continued support that is pouring
in on behalf of Dustin...it is a tes-
tament of how special that young
man was and how many lives he
touched." So far more than $7900


has been donated and there are
plans in the works for a new lock-
er room for the varsity baseball
team and new water fountains in
both dugouts. The plans still need
to go before the Board for
approval but things are looking
great at this point. "We've got a


great start on the cost for the lock-
er room and I understand there
are a few more fund raisers being
planned for the very near future.
Ms. Cyndi told me that the 2nd
Annual Golf Tournament was
already being planned for April
08." Pierce said.

hard."
The Cyclones lost to

Danny Hinkle of Sneads shows off a 13.4 lb. Striper caught
on Wednesday.


Talk about a fish being out of
his water, just below Jim
Woodruff Dam while fishen for
Catfish with worms, a man
caught an eight pound
Sheephead, moved downstream
a bit and took another 5 pound
Sheephead, 98 miles from salt-
water.
Next March 1st, there will be
a Tim Tucker Memorial Bass
Tournament out of Wingate's

his 2 kids, Rachel and Kyle.
Some very large Bass taken
on Plastic & a few on Top Water.
Some small Bass taken up the
Chattahoochee on Worms. They
were just dinks.
Someone has seen hundreds
of big Talapia fish here in
Seminole & wonder how to
catch them. Someone suggested
that we use small grapes. Nets
would do better if we could fig-
ure out jist where and when.
I guess when a gator strikes
at the prop of a boat putting on a
launching ramp & hits the stern
of another boat taken out, that's
time to call the nuisance Gator
Man. So that's just what we did!
Dog Days began this past

idea to watch for mad animals in
your yards and watch for sore
eyes and groud itch too. They
all come alive in the days of the

Bream have been steady all
week long on Crickets and
Wigglers, so has Catfish. Some
very fine Catfish came in on
Wigglers late in the week. By
the looks of things there must be
tons of Catfish in the Lake. No
shortage so far as I see.

Manhole demonstration


Workers from
Madewell Products
Corporation of
Alpharetta, Ga.,
restored some faulty
manholes in Gretna
recently. The crews
sprayed on the Mainstay
Composite Liner to
eliminate leaks and
other problems, as city
officials and others
watched. Workers first
prepared deteriorated
surfaces in the manhole
by water blasting, which
produces a "clean,
sound substrate."
Next, they applied a
special cement mortar
and smoothed it with a
steel trowel. Following
the mortar application,
the workers quickly
"spun on" a corrosion
barrier. Following this
process, the manholes
were ready to be put
back into service within
two to four hours.

Cadets in the East Gadsden High School Corrections Leadership Career Academy were recent-
ly honored by Gadsden County School Superintendent Reginald James and the Gadsden County
School Board.



Seven graduate corrections



officer program at EGHS


By Brian Dekle
Times staff writer

For the second time this year,
seven East Gadsden High School
students walked across a stage this
week with diplomas in hand.
This time however, the seven
didn't walk away as mere high
school graduates; these students
graduated as certified Florida cor-
rections officers.
The seven Nitika Fryson,
Ceria Wood, Prendince Williams,
Sheridan Blair, James Green,
Brittney Burrell and LaDeidra
Gordon have successfully com-
pleted training in the East
Gadsden Corrections Leadership
Career Academy, a new program
designed to give high school stu-
dents a high-paying, high-demand
job in corrections fresh out of high
school.
The program a partnership
between Gadsden County
Schools, Tallahassee Community
College Pat Thomas Law
Enforcement Academy, the
Florida Department of
Corrections, Gadsden
Correctional Institute and
Workforce Plus is the first of its
kind in Florida and possibly the
United States and is part of
Gadsden County School
Superintendent Reginald James'
vision to reach out to all Gadsden
County students.
The academy, James said,
gives students not planning to
attend college a jump-start in the
working world.
"(The academy) is part of my
vision for school improvement.
Nationwide, only 50 percent of
students will go on to higher edu-
cation, and Gadsden County has
similar numbers. So if we focus
only on those students, we're
missing half. We need to ensure
the success of all students," James
said.
Despite their youth, EGHS
corrections cadets have been
immersed in the same intense cur-
riculum as their older traditional
counterparts. During their senior
year at EGHS, cadets spent two
class periods at Pat Thomas Law
Enforcement Academy each day
taking classes required of any cor-
rections officer, who traditionally
begin training in their 30s, on
average.
EGHS students take, classes
with themselves and not other tra-
ditional students, but the students
and older traditional students are,
nonetheless, graded on the same
level.
During the summer, however,
they merged with traditional stu-
dents in Firearms and Defensive
Tactics, which gave them a chance
to develop interpersonal skills
with older adults, program offi-
cials said.
Before enrolling in the pro-
gram, cadets had to undergo a
background check and finger-
printing. Once admitted, cadets
had to take on a transcended atti-
tude and work ethic a far cry
from the carefree'mindset of many
high school students.
"We're looking for a certain
quality of student who has dispo-
sition that represents a level of
seriousness," Kimblin NeSmith,
program coordinator said.
"This is a professional training
academy so the curriculum, the
expectations of these correctional
cadets is different in the sense that
they have to see themselves and
develop a mindset of being in law
enforcement, which is a different
mindset when you're in high
school.
It's very strict, very disci-
plined. Cadets must wear uni-
forms, unlike in public school;
they have to show a certain regard
to their supervisors and instruc-
tors; their uniforms must be
pressed and boots shined; and
they must go through strict physi-
cal regiment in defensive tactics.
They also must have a certain
level of maturity to go through
firearms training."


NeSmith admits it was difficult
for some cadets to adjust to the
demands of the corrections acade-
my. Some students, he said, don't
come from the background of
what's required to be in law
enforcement.
Understanding why they had
to conform to policies and proce-
dures they have not traditionally
been required to do boded a par-
ticular challenge for cadets, but
NeSmith said he and other pro-
gram officials simply emphasized
the benefits of doing so and even-
tually cadets accepted it.
"We stress to them the benefits
of 'becoming certified law
enforcement officer. And if they
will just provide us the opportuni-
ty to explain to them why we have
all these strict requirements, they
will understand that there is a rea-
son why we have such high stan-
dards in this area of law enforce-
ment," he said.
"It was an adjustment for them,
but after they realized the benefits
and that we. are not trying to
change them individually, they
caught on. We're not trying to
change the essence of who they
are; we are trying to get them to
rise to the standards of a tradition-
al law enforcement officer in the
state of Florida."
The benefits of being a correc-
tions academy cadet are many,
NeSmith said. Perhaps most obvi-
ous is the "bottom line."
Graduates of. the corrections
academy can begin a career in law
enforcement right away, making
in excess of $30,000 annually
with impressive benefits.
Even graduates not yet old
enough to work at a correctional
facility are guaranteed a job after
certification. Florida Department
of Corrections Secretary James
McDonough has agreed to
employ cadets at select Florida
Department of Law Enforcement
sites until they are 19, the age
required to work in a corrections
facility.
McDonough also paved the
way to provide a summer stipend
for cadets while they complete
high liability courses, NeSmith
said.
Corrections officer certifica-
tion also opens doors to employ-
merit in other areas of law
enforcement and even advanced
education. Once cadets complete
corrections officer training, their
classes equal 28 credit hours at.
Tallahassee Community College.
The department of corrections
will also pay for six credit hours
per semester at college and allow
cadets to work shifts that fit their
college class schedule.
Other benefits of being
enrolled in the corrections acade-
my are perhaps more subtle, but
just as important as high pay and
good jobs.
At beginning of the program,
cadets take a professional leader-
ship development seminar, in
which they hear from "seasoned"
community leaders Reginald
James, school board members,
law enforcement, officials, etc.,
NeSmith said.
The seminar, NeSmith added,
teaches cadets basic life manage-
ment skills and stresses an under-
standing of their role in greater
society.
Cadets are "transformed" by
the leadership seminar and acade-
my training in general, NeSmith
said.
"One of the greatest assets of
the program is to see the personal
transformation of a cadet from
having the disposition and lan-
guage of a high school student,
and to see them transform into a
young adult who recognizes the
untapped potential they have," he
said.
"You see a level of confidence
emerge in the cadets that they
always had, but you see it at a dif-
ferent level. When our cadets are
competing in defensive tactics and
firearms with other traditional stu-
dents and in many ways outpacing


them, you see a certain level of
maturity evolve.
You see them start to walk with
a different gate. You see them start
to interact with each other and you
hear the language start to trans-
form, because these students real-
ize they are fortunate enough to
interact with people who are the
pillars of the Gadsden County
community, and in many respects
the pillars of society in general."
With the help of grant money
from the Florida Department of
Education, corrections academy
officials hope to expand the pro-
gram to West Gadsden High
School and Carter-Parramore
Academy next year.
NeSmith, James, School Board
Chairman Issac Simmons and
Gadsden Technical Institute
Director Debra Rackley are also
devising a plan to make the pro-
gram self-sufficient and sustain-
able without grant funds.
-NeSmith said the program will
accept "anyone" who qualifies, no
matter how many apply.
"If 100 students show interest
and meet qualifications, we will
locate the resources to assist
them," he said.

We Buy Cars, Trucks & SUVs!


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


*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.

Havana artists' cooperative


making move to Florida


Art Center and Gallery on


First Street


By LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor
Light N Up is packing up its
luminescent expressions 'of art
and moving into a new location
in Havana.
The two-year-old artists'
cooperative is currently located at
107 7th St. in Havana. Owners
Terri Lantz and Joy Green
decided to move to the nearby
Florida Art Center and Gallery on
First Street to be able to offer
more classes and more room to
showcase local artistic talent.
"It's an opportunity for us to
have more gallery
space and also to
offer more
classes," Lantz
said. "We're
excited about that
space because it
was opened in the
'90s when there
was a kind of
renaissance of art
in Havana. We're
hoping to create an
exciting art center in Havana."
Light N Up owners plan to
relocate the third or fourth week
of this month. Lantz said they
will have more than twice the
gallery space they currently have
along with a pottery studio and a
large classroom.
When Light N Up opened in
October, 2005, about 10 members
participated.
That number has since doubled,
and people now ask about joining
the cooperative when they visit
the store, Lantz said:
"It seems like the art
community here is growing," she
said. 'The art seems to be really
thriving here."
Lantz is also hoping the
cooperative will find a few new
members now that there will be
more gallery space and
opportunities to teach and attend


classes.
The cooperative will begin
offering pottery wheel classes,
hand building courses, an oil
painting class, a wood carving
class and a weaving workshop
beginning mid-September.
Registration is currently open
for all classes. To register, or
apply to become a co-op member,
visit www.lightenupartcoop.com.
Following is. a brief description
of the classes planned for this
fall:
* A three-week introduction to
the pottery wheel. The co-op is
offering the class for those who
have always
wanted to try the
potter's wheel
but didn't want
to make a bigger
commitment
until they were
sure they liked it.
People who have
never worked in
clay are
welcome. The
Class teaches the
basics of wheel throwing'and
glazing. The class fee includes
instruction, clay, glazing, and
firing. Tools will be provided.
Class size is limited to six.
A six-week class on beginning
pottery wheel. Attendees will
learn basic wheel skills:
centering, opening, pulling,
shaping, trimming and finishing
as well as glazing. Students will
be asked to make variations on,
the basic cylinder, such as mugs,
vases, and bowls. Includes oneh
25-pound bag of clay and open
studio time. Class size is limited
to six
SAclass in hand building in
pottery. This class is designed for
beginning and experienced
students and includes hand
building and sculpture.

ative will relocate to a nearby
building toward the end of

gourds, turning them into aes-
thetically pleasing works of art.

MICHAEL DEWAYNE KEYS, SR

No farewell words were spoken.
No time to say "GOODBYE".
You were gone before we knew it.
And only GOD knows why.

Our hearts still ache with sadness.


And secret tears still flow.
What it meant to love you.
No one can ever know.

'We love you and miss you very
much.

O come, let us sing unto the Lord: let us make a j
Psalm 95.1 (K


weelz:
oyful noise to the rock of our salvation.
JV)

7OYWF NOs3S
Just what is a joyful noise? Is it
someone with the voice of an angel
or the best piano player? I think we
can answer that question an
affirmative no. A joyful noise is
made when it is coming from your
heart in worship. A pop or rock
singer may have the voice of an
angel, but do you really think their
music and the way they present
themselves is joyful to the "rock of
our salvation." Don't worry that you
can't carry a tune in a bucket; if it's
From your heart it's pleasing to
God. The most joyful noise
sometimes may just be clapping
you hands to the beat of the
special that Sister So-and-So is
singing and lifting your voice in
worship. Just remember, make a
joyful noise the best way you know
how and God will honor itl

B4 The Gadsden County Times August 2, 2007


Every August and September in the United States, millions I
of hids return to their school studies. This time is commonly
Called "Back to School." There are many different types of
school programs beginning at this timesuch as elementary
school, middle school, high school, and college. People of all
a1 ges attend school to leam many different things. Elementary
school is for children ages 5 to 10; middle school is for ages
11 to 13, and high school is for ages 14 to T8. At the end of
high school, you graduate from your grade school studies,
and it is at this time that you can decide whether. ornot you
want to attend college. College is for any age group that has
completed high school. Colleges are schools where you can
further your studies
When you attend a small college, you are usually there to obtain a two-year degree. This
two- year degree may be an Associate's Degree, such as a teaching assistant degree. If you
choose to attend a 4-year college, you will study for an additional two to three years to receive
a Bachelor's or Master's degree, such as a Master's of Elementary Education to become an
elementary school teacher. Students at colleges learn a little bit of information about many
things, such as math, science, language, and history, but they also leam a lot about a specific
area they are interested in. For example, if you wanted to become a history teacher, you would
go to college for four years and take a lot of classes about history and how to teach it.
It's important to get ready to go back to school every year. One thing you may need to do is
get your school supplies together. You may need a book bag, lunch box, notebooks, pens and/or
pencils, crayons, pencil sharpener, ruler, and maybe even a calculator, Another good thing to do
to prepare for the first day of school is to leam your teacher's name before you start class, If you Hiddei Wo~cd
are attending a new school, it may help to ask a parent or adult to take you to the school so that Book Bag
you can leam your way to your home room. This can make the first day of school easier for you C Books
Remember to check with the school in advance to make sure it is okay with them. Whatever you E e College
do to prepare.for the first day of school, make sure you remember that even though school is a Elementary
lot of work, it's also a lot of fun!! Pc Math & Word g a ble Gym class

Gadsden Arts Center announces new exhibitions honored


The Gadsden Arts Center is
pleased to announce the
following exhibitions:
> Florida State University
Early Head. Start Program
"Dabbling in Art" Show
) Gadsden Arts Center
Summer Art Camp Show.
These exhibitions will be
displayed Aug. 2 22.
The Florida State University
Early Head Start Program and the
Dick Howser Center School are
proud to announce the first
annual Infant and Toddler Art
Exhibition at the Gadsden Arts
Center from Aug. 2 22.
For infants and toddlers, "art" is
a process and only very rarely a
product. Very young children
learn about the world through use
of all their senses. Using
everyday materials for sensory
exploration activities, such as
mixing salt into finger paint,
painting with Jello, and making


"clean" mud with soap, lead to an
understanding of math and
science concepts. Use of different
mediums stimulates
experimentation and creative
expression.
Children ages 5 to 12 years old


participated in the Gadsden Arts
Center: Summer Art Camp from
May 29 through June 22, 2007.
Over 30 children joined art
teacher Nancy VanLandingham in
making wonderful pieces of art,
ranging from splatter painting to


clay sculpture to printmaking and
collage. The children are eager to
share their creativity with an
encouraging audience.
We hope you will take some
time to visit our wonderful arts
center to view these pictures and
experiences. This exhibit,
displayed in the Children's
Learning Area of the Gadsden
Arts Center, will enlighten the
community to think of art as

much more than coloring or
painting and that "making a
mess" is really how young
children grow and develop;
besides, kids are washable.
Admission is free. Please make
plans to attend.
For more information, please
contact Tricia Collins, executive
director at
triciacollins@gadsdenarts.org or
850-875-4866; or Rachael Fink at
rachael.fink@gadsdenarts.org or

Triangle weaving "Play
Shop." Triangle weaving is a
unique process that builds the
weave from two opposite corners
at the same time. It's perfect for
beginners to advanced "yarn
people" and a good technique to
use for those colorful, textured,
glitzy novelty yarns that can't be
used on a standard loom.
Participants will build a frame,
break for lunch, then learn the
weave. A full-size shawl can be
made in just, a few hours,
although these are meant to be
finished at home at participants'
own pace.
Registration includes a pre-
handout and materials list.
Cost of materials is about $20
depending on the yars used.

Tallavana Christian 4K to participate in FSU reading research


The 4K class of Tallavana
Christian School has been invit-
ed to participate in a reading
research project of the Florida
Center for Reading Research
(FCRR), a division of Florida
State University. The project is


entitled POWER, which stands
for "Preschool Opportunities
with Educational Resources."
The purpose of the research
is to learn how different activi-
Sties in children's preschool and
child-care classrooms affect the


development of pre-academics
and socio-emotional skills and
how these activities help chil-
dren be better prepared for read-
ing instruction when they reach
school.
The project will evaluate the


ways to help preschool teachers
learn how to provide pre-aca-
demic activities in their pre-
school classrooms. This project
involves using "Literacy
Express Plus", a new research-
based, state-of-the-art preschool


curriculum.
Mrs. Sarah Glass, the 4K
teacher, and Mrs. Alicia Pope,
preschool director, have begun
the summer training classes
necessary to implement the new
curriculum.


TCS invites parents to enroll
their 4-year-olds in this exciting
program. VPK vouchers are:
accepted for this. Call the,
school office, 539-5300, for
more information on enroll
ment.
