Last week when the

verbal ruling that Progress
Energy had overcharged
some of its retail
customers, Quincy City
Commissioner Sherie
Taylor felt somewhat
vindicated. lo
For years, Taylor has said Taylor
something was "wrong"
with the amount of money local utility
customers have been paying for energy. When
it was brought to Taylor's attention that the

Ground broken for wastewater project

by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
It's been more than two years in
the making, but Tuesday morning
another 'step was taken toward
increasing economic
development in Gadsden County.
It wasn't glamourous, but it is
essential if growth is going to
take place.
Ground was broken for the
permanent wastewater project to
serve two hotels at Interstate 10


and State Road 267, south of
Quincy.
The newly constructed
Hampton Inn and Holiday Inn
Express will benefit immediately
from the system which is the
result of a $489,000 Community
Development Block Grant from
the Department of Community
Affairs. It will be easier to recruit
other businesses to the area when
the system is in place, according
to county officials.
"This isn't the first nor it is the


last. We're creating opportunities
where our people can live, work,
and play. Today is a momentous
and great step." said County
Commissioner Ed Dixon.
"This is a truly great day for the
business community. This area is
in part of my district and I and
my colleagues on the county
commission are elated that we
can now move forward with our
plans to improve our wastewater
infrastructure because we
recognize what it means overall


to our economic development.
efforts. The two go hand-in-hand.
We can't expand without a proper
system in place and today this is
the beginning of the work that
must continue to take place," he
said.
Gail Stafford, planning manager
with the Florida Department of
Community Affairs, said
partnering with Gadsden County

Contemplation


The name game


Lots of people have the same name.
Sometimes that's good and sometimes that's
bad. In the case of stolen identity, that can be
bad. I, for one, get a kick out of my
namesake.
The Alice DuPont I refer to is the rich one.
Not me. This woman is a member of the
famous duPont'clan of the Delaware du
Ponts. I don't know where she resides now,
but at one time she lived on Palm Beach. The
woman even has a flower, the Mandevilla x
amabilis, named in her honor. I have a picture
of it in my office.
Although the last names are spelled
differently, mine is DuPont and her's is du
Pont. it doesn't seem to make much difference
when folks start sending mailouts. I suppose
the rule is that if you send something out the
chances of the right person getting it are at
least 50-50.
The envelope addressed to me was
delivered by the postman Monday. One look
at the name on the return address alertedme
than the letter might not have been intended
for me. You see the letter was from the
Investment Management Divison of
Goldman, Sachs & Co. not to be confused
with Goldman, Sachs & Co.'s Global
Investment Research Deparment. The
individual sending me the correspondence
was a vice president of private wealth
management.
.On opening it, I thought it could be a press
release too because it had the name of the
Gadsden County Times on the outside and
the correct mailing address. Then there was
some talk about the Russian Ruble, Japanese
Yen, the Thai Baht, the Malaysian Ringgit,
the Turkish Lira, and the Korean Won. The
V-P's recommendation was to "extend the
duration of the fixed income portfolio" so that
it would "mitigate the effect of our
underweight to bonds."
Clearly, this letter was meant for Alice du
Pont and not Alice DuPont.
The first time I knew of the other Alice was
back in 1982. I had just moved from
Washington, DC to West Palm Beach. One
day I was going through the newspaper
looking for an apartment I could afford. But
first, I made some calls to luxury condos and


aarmnents on the beach just for fun.
Everytime I said my name and advised the
office that I was looking to rent or buy their
tone became quite friendly, nice, and even
solicitious.
"Why yes, Ms. DuPont we'd be so happy to
have you as a tenant."
"Of course, Ms. DuPont just call us when
YOU want to set up an appointment to see
our properties."
I thought to myself, "boy these are some
really nice people in Palm Beach County."
That night I was telling my family about my
day and about the calls to various condos and
apartment complexes. I noticed that
everybody had a little smile on their face as I
recounted my experiences. Finally, my
brother Carl explained that the people on the
other end were so nice because they thought I
was the rich Alice du Pont of Palm Beach
calling and not the financially challenged
Alice DuPont of Quincy, FL.
It's funny feeling when you know of another
person who has the same name as you.
I have met people who have not had such
good experiences with people with the same
name. About three or four times a year we get
requests from people who want us to make it
clear that the name of the individual (usually
in the Newvs of Record section for arrests) is
not them.
I sympathize with them because the most
we can do is to print a line or two in.the next
issue saying that the person arrested is not the
person who lives at a certain address. Trying
to make things a little better I generally tell
the person that people who really know them
willnot think they are not the person arrested.
I don't know that heps though.
My heart really went out to a man last year
who is a veteran school teacher.
Unfortunately, an individual with his name
was arrested for molesting a minor. He
worried about his reputation as an educator
and he had every right to be concerned. We
did our best to night the situation.
There isn't much one can do, about another
peson with the same name. Who knows, there
may be hundreds of Alices out there with
different, ior e same, spelling of the last
name we share in common.


My sporIs' heroes were easy to find when I
was growing up. My older brother, Leon, could.
stand flat footed in our back yard and throw a
walnut over Miss Boaz's house, across Joe
Gooch's and Woodrow Kennon's yards and hit
a swing set behind Billy and Karen Webb's
garage. He could throw a baseball straight up
until it went out of sight! I've seen him do it!
Bobby C. Melton would put on that number
"42"jersey on Friday nights and run over,
around and through the other team like they
weie in slow motion! He had a high leg kick
that left opponents grasping at air. In the
football vernacular of the day, he could "tote
the mail". Bobby C. even hadhis hair brushed
back like a real hero was supposed to.
Jackie Bums owned a three fingered baseball
glove that I would have died for. And he knew
how to use it! Best of all, he never seemed to
mind when I tagged along.
And if they needed an extry right fielder he'd
even speak up for me.
I saw Nicky Joe Stafford in a high school
football game run a guy down from behind and
jerk him off his feet. I've never seen a guy
move so fast! That play is still so vivid in my
mind. Nick lived just down the hill from us and
he'd hang around the house a lot and talk
-baseball or football with me.
Paul David Campbell could play anything.
He was pretty tall. And he had one of the most
versatile back yards in the history of the known
world. It was a baseball field in the summer. It
doubled as a basketball courton mild winter
days. And it was a pretty fair football field if
you could avoid running into the garage.
These were Leon friends. They were five
years or so older than me and I was in awe of
their athletic skills. They seemed to swing the
bat so effortlessly. The football just stuck to
their hands. They were strong enough to get the
basketball up to that high goal with ease. And
they didn't even breathe hard when they ran!
They played hard. They were serious
competitors. They had courage. And strength.
And fortitude. And determination. None of
them ever asked any quarter....or gave any.
But the laughter came so easy for them. They
loved it..... The game. The moment. The sheer
joy of youth! They committed to each contest
to the fullest....but they'd leave the field arm in
arm. I don't remember any scores now but I
remember the sweat....the smiles.....and the
unadulterated fun!
I watched them for hours on end. And I tried
as hard as I could to be just like them. I wanted
to slide like Nicky Joe, pick up my legs like
Bobby C., bank that hook shot in just like Paul


David and "scoop it" like Jackie. And poor
Miss Boaz thought it was raining walnuts as I
tried to get one all the way over her house......
They graduated and went off to college. I was
stuck in the eighth grade. And the baseball and
football games moved to that vacant lot
between Jimmy Mabry and Ricky Hale's
house. We had to "choose up sides" by
ourselves. New heroes moved in. I liked Bill
Russell. Johnny Unitas. And anyone in a St.
Louis Cardinal uniform. Arnold Palmer got me
to try golf. J. C. Caroline became-my new "all
time" favorite. He could play offense, or
defense. And I still pull for the Chicago Bears
today because of him.
But, I tell you, finding a sports' hero isn't as
easy as it used to be. Teny Labonte has retired.
Willie Mays hasn't said "Say Hey" in years.
We can't seem to muster up a Triple Crown
Winner. Dale Murphy has gone off to Utah.
And the Cardinals need Bob Gibson more now
than they did in the sixties....
It's hard to pull for a guy on steroids, I don't
care how many homeruns he hits! The term
"dog fight" has taken on a whole new meaning
in this sports' era. First round draft picks hold
out because nine million a year "just ain't
enough". Players write in their contracts that
they won't play for certain teams or coaches. A
corerback in Tennessee has been arrested
forty-seven times. It is rumored that an NBA
referee has bet on games that he was
officiating! And just recently professional
tennis has launched an investigation into'
alleged reports of "suspicious betting" on
certain matches.
If we keep on going like this someone is
going to have to apologize to Pete Rose!
I'm not real interested in seeing professional
sports guys in orange suits and handcuffs. I'd
just as soon watch a rerun of those old movies
on the Hallmark Channel. And I can't tell now
who's on the "juice" and who is not. Who
wants to play in Kansas City and who doesn't.
Who is going to opt out of his contract because
the Yankees will pay him a hundred dollars
more.....
It's just too mind-boggling for me! The focus,
in so many instances, has left the game. And
listen, I'm not whining here. I not trying to be
cynical and I am certainly not angry. I'm
disappointed. My heart hurts.
But I'm working through it. And guess who
my new sports heroes are today..... Bobby C.
Melton, Jackie Bums, Nicky Joe Stafford, Paul
David Campbell and Leon Colbert.
Now those guys knew how to play!
Respectfully, Kes

Elaborations on August


If you need a reason to celebrate August -
and if you live in Florida, you need a reason
to celebrate August there are plenty of
madcap moments in the month, including a
total eclipse of the moon.
(Read: My brain melted the day the heat.
index hit 115 and I have once again turned to
the trusty Internet for column fodder.)
Go ahead and set your thermostat to a nice,
non-Hades temperature, and take note:
Aug. 9 is National Polka Festival day. If
John Sousa Phillips makes your heart pound:
with joy, you're in luck. ,
Aug. 10 is Lazy Day. 'Nuff said. It's
August in Florida. EVERY day should be
Lazy Day.
Aug. 11 is Presidential Joke Day. Here's
one to get you started: Q: How many Bush
Administration officials does it take to screw
in a light bulb?
A: None. There is nothing wrong with the
light bulb; its conditions are improving every
day. Any reports of its lack of incandescence
are delusional spin from the liberal media.
That light bulb has served honorably, and
anything you say undermines the lighting
effect. Why do you hate freedom?
Aug. 12 is Middle Child's Day and Aug. 13
is Blame Someone Else Day. As an oldest
child, these two holidays coincide perfectly,
to my way of thinking.
Aug. 14 is National Creamsicle Day,
followed by National Relaxation Day AND
National Failures Day on Aug. 15.
Hmmmm, grasshopper .....
Aug. 16 is Bratwurst Festival day. There is
probably a Bratwurst Festival somewhere in
Florida. There is probably a Best Brat
Festival somewhere in Florida, come to think

And Aug. 31 is National Trail Mix Day. I

help to succeed in school. Parents you can make a
difference in how well your child does in school. Parental
involvement will increase the students' grades, test scores
and graduation rates. According to proven data, the more
involved a parent is in his or her child's life fewer instances
of violent behavior will occur and a decrease in the use of
drugs and alcohol. The objective of education is to prepare
the young to educate themselves throughout their lives.
The more parental involvement increases the greater
enrollment in post-secondary education. The children of
this wonderftducounty have a need, That need is to be
loved, wanted without shame or regret. After doing some
research I find many students are ashamed of success
because they'll be considered "sell outs". Though, in spite
of, we must succeed anyway. What takes us year to build
someone may try to destroy over night, build anyway. The
single most determinant ofa child's success in school, and
ultimately throughout life is not family status, educational
level, income or IQ it is whether that child's family is
involved in his or her education. Education allows us to
research our souls regardless of what someone tells us. After
all life is much easier when we understand the value of
education and economics. According to a 1998 survey by
the National Institute for Literacy 40-44 million adults 18
years and older cannot read. In Gadsden County 40% of
the adult population is reading at level 1, which is the
lowest literacy level. Many others are functioning below
5th grade reading level, and do not have the necessary basic
skills required by today's society to live above the poverty
level. That's why we need volunteers and parental
involvement. Finally, I understand adults have more
responsibilities and many important things to do. Now,
will you accept this letter as a personal invitation to mentor
a child or volunteer at one of the many public schools in
Gadsden County? We need you. Your help is greatly
appreciated. Thank you in Advance.

Gadsden:


bridges


failing

by Doug Croley, Gadsden
County Commissioner, District
Two

Minnesota

tragedy

brings point

home to our

own county

Citizens:

Last week's tragic bridge
collapse in Minnesota should
remind all of us about the
importance of properly
maintaining our roadway
infrastructure. Here in
Gadsden County many of our
county bridges are in serious
need of repair or replacement.
Soon after my election last
year as District Two County
Commissioner, I completed a
personal survey of the roads
and bridges in the District.
Surprisingly, I found that
eighty-one percent of the
county bridges in District Two
are between forty-two and
sixty-seven years old with
several of them in very
questionable condition. The
poor condition and age of these
bridges present both a serious
safety issue and a possible
economic challenge for'our
citizens given the high,
percentage of residents who :
must daily commute to work
and school over them. Adding
to this alarming situation is the
importance that these same
bridges have to our emergency
vehicle response times and to
our local area employers'
ability to move their goods and
services.
While the Florida
Department of Transportation
(DOT) does have
responsibility for bridge
inspections in Gadsden
County, your Board of County
Commissioners has the
responsibility for their
maintenance, repair and
replacement. A review of'
recent DOT inspection reports.
for Commission District Two
confirm that at least three
bridges are scour critical
(meaning that the bridge
foundations are washing out),
two other bridges are in need
of immediate structural repair
while an additional bridge is
deemed to be obsolete.
Thankfully we have had the
benefit of our hard working
County Public Works
Department employees who,
with the very limited financial
and manpower resources
allotted to them, have been
responding for many years to
these and other bridge
maintenance issues. Despite
their best efforts, however,
these same dedicated county
employees cannot
satisfactorily address the
deteriorating condition of our
county bridges without a
reinforcement of resources
from the Board of County
Commissioners.
As District Two County
Commissioner my primary
focus on your behalf is
essential county services,
delivered in an exemplary
manner and at the lowest
reasonable costs. While this
focus may not enjoy majority
support on the Commission, I
believe that it best serves the
interest of our County as a
whole. To that end and for the
personal safety of you and
your loved ones, I will request
that my fellow Commissioners


support funding of a properly
scheduled county bridge
maintenance and replacement
program in the 2007 -2008
Gadsden County budget.
Public safety must have first
priority.

Americorps Vistas work to better education, more


By BRIAN DEKLE
Times staff writer

When local schools need"
mentors for students or a help-
ing hand with anything, a team
of Gadsden County volunteers
steps in and makes it happen.
The Americorps Vistas, a
group of more than 20 Gadsden
County volunteers, is the power-'
ful, behind-the-scenes driving
force behind many local school
programs and more.'
Though Vistas don't directly
volunteer at schools, they flock
out into the community, knock-
ing on doors and inviting people
to become mentors at local
schools.
They show people how to
become mentors and provide
them with the necessary paper-
work to do so.


"Right now our focus is edu-
cation; it's been our focus for
the last three years. We're plan-
ning on possibly expanding, but
right now the need is in educa-
tion, so we're going out and get-
ting mentors and volunteers. We
actually go out in the communi-
ty, from door to door, asking
people if they'd like to be a part
of the mentor and volunteer pro-
gram," Latrenda Goldwire,
executive director, said.
The Vistas also work to get
parents involved' in school by
passing out fliers with dates and
Times of school parent expos
S"The (parent) presence at the
schools, per some of the princi-
pals, has really benefited' from
the vistas. Because of the budg-
et cuts, .(schools) don't have as
many employees as far as para-
professionals and those types of


employees. But the Americorps
Vistas can assist the parent liai-
son in increasing parent involve-
ment," Goldwire said.
The Vistas, just in its third
year in Gadsden County, are
already seeing impressive
returns as a result of their work.
For example, after a Vista work-
ing at Greensboro Elementary
School passed out fliers adver-
tising a parent expo there, the
school saw record-breaking
numbers 200 to 250 of par-
ents at one of its parent expos.
Goldwire said parent
involvement in schools is key to
the Vista's goal of bettering
local education.
"We know if parents are
involved it improves a child's
academics and their self esteem,
because they're proud when
their parents come to school and


watch them perform, It's also
important just that a child knows
mom or dad cares. The staff at
the schools can see where a stu-
dents' behavior and discipline
improve when parents are
involved. A parent may not be
able to help with homework, but
just being there, checking with
the teacher is key to a child's
education.
In addition to their work in
local schools, the Vistas have
assisted other groups such as
Unity in the Community, the
Tallahassee Community College
Quincy House, Redeemed, Inc.
and more.
The Vistas also plan to
expand into local health services
this year, working closely with
the Gadsden County Health
Department in getting the word
out on programs and other infor-


Midway takes no action on ethics accusations


By LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor

Although the Florida
Commission on Ethics found in
its July meeting that Midway
Mayor Delores Madison likely
had a conflict of interest when
she voted on a paving project on
the road on which her mother
lives, members voted to take no
further action as Madison's
mother didn't profit from the
action.
Madison announced that
ethics charges had been filed
against her during the regular
Aug. 2 City Council meeting.
"When I took my oath as
councilperson, I took an oath
that I would share everything,"


Madison said. "Jerry. Range
filed ethics charges against me.
He said because my mom
owned four acres on a road that
the council voted to pave, I had
a conflict of interest. The
Commission found probable
cause that I had a conflict of
interest probable cause is not a
determination. The Commission
decided it would not take any
further action because the (city)
attorney did not advise me it
was a conflict of interest and the
benefit to my mother was de
minimis in nature."
Range, president of the
Midway Chamber of
Commerce, ran unsuccessfully
against Madison in the city's
April election.


Madison's mother, Ann
Madison, once owned four acres
on Bradwell Lane, for which'the
City Council approved a
repaving project as part of a
consent agenda. Madison's
mother deeded close to half of
her property to the city so near-
by residents could have access
to Palmer Road.
"I want to thank my mom for
doing that. She didn't have to do
that. She could have been ugly,"
Madison said. "By her doing
that, we were awarded a grant
that we had not been able to get
for seven or eight years. We did
something worthy. "
According to an Ethics
Commission's press release on
its findings during its July 27


meeting, Madison "had a con-
flict when she voted on a meas-
ure that changed the priority of
road paving projects resulting in
the paving of the road on which
her mother resides.
"The Commission voted they
would not take further action on
the complaint because the
respondent received no indica-.
tion from the city attorney that
the vote would cause a conflict,
the vote was a consent-type
agenda, and the benefit to the
respondent's mother was de
minimis in nature."
Madison seemed to have put
the matter behind her during
SThursday's meeting.
"The bottom line," she said,
"is, I should not have voted."

School district to give $100 to top readers


By BRIAN DEKLE
Times staff writer

Children everywhere gain
knowledge and thinking skills
from reading, but in Gadsden
County youngsters can also gain
a fatter wallet from cracking
books over the summer.
:I- .The Gadsden County School
District's "Summer Reading
ct.Wa\e," a summer reading pro-
gram that allows students to
choose from select book titles,


includes a $100 incentive for top
readers this year.
For the first time, the district
is awarding $100 to the student
who reads the most books over
the summer at his or her school.
School Siperintendent
Reginald James said the cash
award is aimed at improving
student reading skills, which,
according to standardized test
marks, generally lag the
state's.
"Parents like to see that you


are promoting education at all'
times," James said. "I believe
reading is at the core of learn-
ing."
Only 38 percent of students
who took .the Florida
Comprehensive Assessment
Test (FCAT) this year scored at
or above the state level, but this
figure marks an improvement
over years past.
Local businesses donated a
total of $2,000 to fund the cash
incentive.


To be eligible for the award,
students must complete book
reports and submit a reading log
signed by their parents on the
first day of school.
Media specialists will read
the book reports and tally num-
bers on reading logs during the
first week of school.
Students participating in the
Summer Reading Wave are
required to read a certain num-
ber of books over the summer,
depending on their grade level.

Organization assists with horticulture research


Group also

spreads joys

of gardening

By BRIAN DEKLE
Times staff writer

Members of a new local
organization believe in using
"flower power" to make Gadsden
County a more attractive and gen-
erally better place to live and
visit.
The Gardening Friends of the
Big Bend formed recently to sup-
port and assist the faculty and
staff of the University of Florida
IFAS North Florida Research and
Education Center in Quincy.
The group hopes to benefit
more than just the center, howev-
er, by bringing the joys and mer-
its of gardening to the entire com-
munity and region, Jill Williams,
group founder, said.,
"Gardening feeds our soul, as
well as our minds," Williams
said. "It's relaxing, and it brings a
wealth of personal benefits like
the satisfaction of planting and
nurturing and seeing it come to
fruition. Gardening also helps the
environment and' beautifies the
area."


Dr. Gary Knox and Jill Williams examine a rose mallow plant outside the University of Florida IFAS North Florida Research
and Education Center.


The group plans to host educa-
tional field days, gardening talks,
garden tours and plant sales,. all
open to the public, at the Quincy
NFREC.


A major garden project in
open areas of the NFREC campus.
is also in the works, in addition to
the group's other service projects
there, including routine garden


maintenance and more.
Gardening Friends of the Big
Bend stemmed from volunteer
work by Williams several years
ago.


Williams began volunteering
at NFREC in 2003. She counted
magnolia, hydrangea and crepe
myrtle blooms, and collected
other data that the center has used


in research.
Dr. Gary Knox of NFREC
said her work yielded "wonderful
information" that allowed the
center to make data-driven rec-
ommendations to the horticulture.
industry as to what plants grow
best in what seasons in north
Florida.
Funding cutbacks has left the
center in need of people to collect
such data, and members of the
Gardening Friends plan to help in
this way and in other capacities.
Williams said the group hopes
to connect with other area gar-
dening groups in planning events
and more.
So far, the group has had six
meetings, with people from "var-
ious and sundry" backgrounds -
master gardeners, horticultural-
ists, and hobbyists participating.
Williams said the group is open to
anyone with an interest in garden-
ing.
"We'd love for people to get
involved; the more the merrier,"
Williams said.
In addition to its long-term
plans and goals, the group now
has plans for a plant sale in early
December and an ornamental
grass field day soon.

Bend, call Williams at 850-663-

N ew


r


By Joe Ferolito


It's been a little over a yeai since
I watched my son, Joey, head off to
Dallas and a career change. To be
honest, I haven't adjusted to the sit-
uation well.
We had hardly been out of
reaching distance during his whole


life, and though he turned 40 this
past April, he's still my boy, my
only child.
Joey's done quite well in Texas.
He has a job he enjoys. His wife,
Julie also enjoys her job. Thce
both are knowledgeable about their


careers and handle the travel their
professions entail quite well.
Joey is a sales representative for
McDavid, a sporting goods firm
that deals in injury preventive
lines. His territory for the firm is
Texas, Oklahoma. Louisianna,
Mississippi, and Arkansas.
He also travels a lot national-
ly for training, shows, and sales
meetings.
Those that know Joey. know that
like his dad he is a sports nut. This
past year some of the places he's
called me from are Wriggley Field,
the Ballpark in Arlington, Angels
Stadium. the Houston Astros Park,
a Mavericks-Suns game, the Texas
Motor Speedway during a race. the
13th hole at the Heritage Open in a
sponsors tent, the Colonial Open.
the Colts-Cowboys football game,
the Texas-Oklahoma football
game, and basketball or football
games at Baylor. TCU, and SMU.


I'm happy for him. and maybe a
little envious of him for getting to
live his lifestyle.
I do wish he and Julie would
stay home some, because I would
like a grandchild. I don't think that
will happen though. and really
that's none of my business.
I'm leaving Friday to spend a
week with Joey and Julie, mostly
Joey.
We plan to go to the PGA in
Tulsa on Sunday, a Rangers base-
ball game next Wednesday, the
Babe Ruth 10 and under World
Series in Ft. Smith Arkansas next
Monday, and maybe a couple of
minor league baseball games.
Why the World Series in Ft.
Smith? A team from Wakulla
County has won the right to play in
the tournament. One of the
Wakulla County coaches is James
Estes. who has a son on the team.
Joey and James were room


mates when they played college
baseball at George Wallace.
Seeing James and watching his son
compete will be quite a treat.
This will be my second visit to
Dallas since Joey moved there.
Last year we drove to Chicago and
along the way saw Cardinals and
Brewers games. We also attended
a pair of games at Wriggley and
saw the Oklahoma-Washington
football game on the way back to
Dallas.
I enjoyed that trip. I'll enjoy this
one. I would still rather be closer
to my son all the time. The adjust-
ment to his leaving is still being
made. And don't think I don't know
I'm lucky. because in many situa-
tions, for many people, the father-
son situation is much worse.
Arriving in Texas will be fun,
leaving won't be. That's part of life
though. I guess I have to enjoy the
things I can and take it like it falls.

Gretna finally gets audit results; outlook generally good


By BRIAN DEKLE
Times staff writer

After months of waiting, the
city of Gretna's 2004-2005 fiscal
year audit is in, and its findings
are generally positive.
Ronald Thompkins of Watson
Rice LLP, who performed the
city's 2004-2005 audit, told the
Gretna City Commission at its
regular meeting Tuesday that the
city's staff should be commend-
ed for cleaning up many problem
areas that existed in past audits.
Many areas of the city's
finances showed significant
improvements over previous
audits in the unqualified audit.
Among these were liabilities,
which yielded more than


$700,000 in savings from last
year; capital net, which saw a
"much smaller deficit" this year;
business activities, which went
from a $214,00 deficit last year
to $336,000 in the green this
year; and a $500,000 increase in
the city's overall operations
equity.
Thompkins said he would
return in October to present the
2005-2006 audit, and the city
will be current on all its finances
at that time.
In other action Tuesday:
-The commission unanimous-
ly approved a contract with R&E
Farms for hauling and disposing
of the city's wastewater sludge, a
by-product of the wastewater
treatment process.


R&E Farms has previously
handled the sludge disposal for
the city without a contract. The
Florida Department of
Environmental Protection told
city officials if the city had no
contract with R&E Farms, it
would be held liable for any
improper disposal of the sludge.
The approved contract releas-
es the city of Gretna from any
liability once the sludge leaves
its wastewater facility.
The contract is for one year
and is subject to annual renewal.
The city pays R&E Farms
$1,200 per load of sludge. City
Manager Antonio Jefferson said
the sludge hauling costs the city
an estimated $57,600 annually.
-Commissioners discussed


possible future uses for a build-
ing on 4th Street that is currently
being operated as a private day
care facility. The company oper-
ating the day care occupies the
building under a one-year lease,
which expires in December 2007
and can be terminated by the city
at any time for any or no cause as
long as a 60-day notice is given.
Commissioners discussed
renewing the lease for the day-
care facility and the possibility
of using the building as a multi-
purpose complex for senior citi-
zens and/or other groups and not
renewing the lease.
Commissioners decided to
allow citizens to first voice their
thoughts on how the building
can best be used through a city-


wide questionnaire to be distrib-
uted by staff and a public work-
shop to be scheduled at a later
date before making solid plans
on the future of the facility.
-Commissioners approved on
a four to one vote a request for a
new city manager vehicle.
Jefferson said the city is
spending a lot of money on
repairs to an aging fleet of vehi-
cles and the commission needs
to make strategic decisions to
weed out old vehicles. The cur-
rent city manager vehicle is a
1998 Chevrolet Lumina with
110,000 miles that has recently
had problems with the air condi-
tioner and transmission. The cost
to fix these problems would total
$3,300.


PSC from Page 1


Florida Public Service
Commission had before it a case
alleging that the company had
overcharged some of its customers,
Taylor asked City Attomey Jack
McLean to keep track of the case
and to find out what, if anything, it
meant to Quincy's utility
customers.


McLean said that last week, the
PSC found that Progress Energy
had overcharged some of its retail
customers. While a verbal ruling
has been issued, the commission
has 21 days to post a written ruling.
McLean said he wanted to wait to
see the written ruling. But there is
one catch, according to McLean.


"The Florida Public Service
Commission only regulates retail
customers. Quincy is a wholesale
customer because it buys power for
resale. The Federal regulatory
Commission,which is similar to the
PSC actually regulates
wholesalers," he said.
The Crystal River site, which is


where Quincy purchases part of its
power, is the plant in question.
McLean said the city paid about
$20 million dollars to Progress
Energy between 2003 and 2005.
The overpayment to the company
quite possibly will not only affect
retail customers but wholesale
customers as well.


The PSC ruling, according to
McLean, will prove a basis to
move forward with a complaint
before the Federal Regulatory
Commission.
"We are not the only wholesale
purchasers. Others include
Chattahoochee, Bartow, Mt. Dora,
Homestead, New S'ymma Beach,


The commission decided to
give the go ahead for purchase of
a new Ford Expedition. The
vehicle will be purchased under
a municipal lease with four
annual payments of $7,900,
bringing the total bill to $31,600.
With the exception of Helen
Frank, commissioners noted the
purchase is worth the money in"
the long run in that it will keep
the city from having to pay the
city manager a hefty fuel stipend
if he uses his personal vehicle
and will also provide a means of
transportation for commission-
ers when they travel to govern-
ment-related events
Frank implied she preferred
giving the city manager a
stipend.




Reedy Creek, Winter Park and
Willison. I think all of the cities
involved are waiting (for the
written ruling) before they make
and analysis and decide what to do.
If the. decision is made to file a
complaint it would be less
expensive on al parties involved to
file a class action," he said.

for the past 20 years has been a
rewarding experience.
"We are excited that Gadsden
County, along with Kiwi
Hospitality, Inc. and .Payal
Hospitality, were able to work in
conjunction with one another to
obtain a grant to benefit not only
our hotels but also Gadsden
County as a whole. We hope that
other businesses will help us
embark on the journey to lead
Gadsden County into the next
decade," said Hement Patel of
Holiday Inn Express.


"This (groundbreaking) is
special because of the effort that
has gone into it. Over the past 20
years the Department has funded
14 grants awards worth
$6,721,738 .. Another $5.6
million dollars has come from
private dollars." Stafford said.
This grant, however, is
Different because it comes under
the economic development
category. The grant will allow
for the installation of more than
7,000 feet of pipe that will be
connected to the City of


Quincy's 'wastewater system.
Commission Chairman Brenda
Holt said that since the county
does not have sewer facilities,
the county is delighted to
partner with the Quincy to make
the expansion possible.
Marianna-based Melvin
Engineering, Inc. are the
designers and engineers of the

completion by December of this
year.

"I wanted to get a car, so I went
out looking for a car," the long-
time senator said. "I told my wife
I was looking for a car that would
go from 0 to 180 in 60 seconds
.... Then she brought out the
bathroom scales. Several times
I've passed parks in Tallahassee
where parents had dropped off
their children early in the
morning. Parks play such a big
role in parents' lives, and they are
not only an outlet for social fun
but they provide healthy activity.
We're going to -really see this
park develop, and we hope to
enhance it for adults, with things
like walking trails. It's extremely,
extremely important."
The Eugene Lamb, Jr.
Foundation was founded by
Brian Lamb in honor of his
father, County Commissioner
Eugene Lamb, in 2003. Its
purpose is to raise funds to
develop and enhance the Eugene
Lamb, Jr. Recreation Center and
Park. The foundation works to
improve center facilities, land,
staff, and the long-term civic
impact of the center in the
community.
Deloris Lamb, retired from the
state Department of Corrections
and wife of Eugene Lamb, serves
as president. Rolanda Lamb of
Blue Cross Blue Shield of
Florida, Vemell Ross, retired
teacher and coach and Havana
City Council member, and
Charles Chapman, retired from
Tallahassee Parks and
Recreation, also serve on the
board.
"We are working very hard to
provide a park that Midway can
be proud of," Mrs. Lamb said
Thursday during the regular
Midway City Council meeting.
"We will have a concession stand
with a bathroom, a storage room
and an area for the announcer ....
A place where kids are able to
spend the day in a safe
environment while' their parents
are working..The dugouts are
built, and hopefully we will be
able to begin construction within


the next week. We will use
inmate crews for the concession
stand. Mr. Lamb has secured
donations from Gadsden and
Leon county businesses to help
with the cost of the project, in-
kind donations."
Even so, city council members
at Thursday's meeting had some
questions about exactly how
much the park will cost the city
in the long run and liability issues
surrounding renting out the
proposed multipurpose room.
"I think this is a wonderful idea.
I do have some concerns: Safety,
security, revenue and cost," she
said.
City Councilwoman Quintaleo
Cato has similar concerns.
"We're going to have to sustain
this after they build it and leave it
to us," she said.
The deadline. for City Council
approval of the grant and
renovations to the center passed
Aug. 1. Several City Council
members 'were 'irked 'about
having to make a last-minute
decision; however, others said the
Lamb Foundation was apparently
not aware of the deadline.
"Now the pressure's being put
on us, and it's not right," said
Jarod Holton.
Madison said council members
were not given information on
the proposal until after last
month's City Council meeting:
"We didn't know anything about
this until last month. That's where
we've gotten into trouble before,"
she said. "This is a little like
voting in the blind here."
Cato made a motion to approve
the request with a stipulation that
the Lamb Foundation dedicate
and document a specific portion
of the grant to be used by the city
to sustain the park; Assistant City
Attorney John White suggested
she make a motion to approve the
request with the condition that
members of the Lamb
Foundation meet with the interim
city manager and City Council
members to iron out all the
details. The motion was approved
unanimously.
In other business, council
members danced the Taylor
Ridge tango again, -once more
voting to send the matter back to
the Midway Planning and Zoning
Commission.

subdivision off Knights Road has
dangled in the balance for some
six months now, as council
members weigh protests from
area residents and the question of
whether Knights Road is wide
enough to handle any extra traffic
against the developer's assertion,
normally made through his
engineer, that the site plan is
feasible and has been approved
by the state Department of
Environmental Protection.
During the last discussion of the
matter, City Council voted to
send the site plan back to
Planning and Zoning for
edification on what could be done
to make the proposal more
palatable for all involved.
Instead, Planning and Zoning
Commission members voted 3-2
to deny Koonce's request for site
plan approval "once and for all,"
Madison said.
"We can work with him and try
to come up with some kind of
solution to'this,' Mladison id.
Cato said she doesn't think all
Knight Road residents are
opposed to the subdivision and
that Koonce needs to "work with
the citizens and with Planning
and Zoning to give some
specifics on what would make the
thing doable."
She then made a motion to send
.the matter back to Planning and
Zoning for a specific
recommendation, which
prompted outbursts from several
audience members, including
Linda Morris.
"He went through the DEP.
DEP approved it, so hat's the
problem? We spend 30-40
minutes discussing this every
month. It's not fair to the people
who come out to hear other city
business," she said.
Ann Madison said the youthful
developer deserves a chance.
"I consider this man is a young
man. He's trying to climb on up,
and we're trying to push him
down," she said. "We're going to
die and leave it all. So why don't
you all let this man do what he
wants to do? Let's us all try to
work as one and pull together
instead of pulling apart like a
bucket of crabs."
The motion to send the item
back to Planning and Zoning
passed 4-2, with Madison and
Holton dissenting.

Local educator takes


trip


to


reeece


Greensboro

teacher lives

a dream,

thanks to

the Sherry

Smith

Foundation

By BRIAN DEKLE
Times staff writer
From sipping coffee while
gazing at the stately Acropolis to
climbing the 567 ancient steps of
Santorini atop a donkey, a
Gadsden County art teacher's
Mediterranean excursion was
quite an adventure and nothing
short of a dream-come-true.
Since high school, Greensboro
Elementary art teacher Holle
Boykin has been "in love with
Greece." A high school
humanities class sparked a
longing in the self-proclaimed
"wanderlust" to walk the
cobblestone streets of Athens,
gaze into the eyes of Greek gods
immortalized in marble and
experience all the marvels of the
place that gave birth to the
foundations of Western thought,
art and society in general.
A modest teacher's salary made
Boykin's dream of visiting her
"love" a far-off fantasy at best,
until she was awarded a traveling.
grant by the Sherry Smith
Foundation.
The foundation was organized
in memory of the late Sherry
Smith, who, before she died of
cancer several years ago, often
traveled abroad and shared the
things she learned and
experienced with students and
the community.
Knowing teachers can rarely
afford to travel the world, Smith
wished to give Gadsden County
educators a chance to do so. Each
year, the foundation awards a
teacher selected through an
application process $3,000 to
travel to a locale of his or her
choice.
Boykin said winning the award
and her subsequent trip to Greece
has been an invaluable learning
experience for her, and she plans
to share the knowledge and
insight she picked up in Greece
with her students and the
Gadsden County community, just
as Smith did years ago.
"I fell in love with Greece in a
high school humanities class, and
I said to myself, 'I'm going there
one day.' Still, I never thought
I'd go to Greece. Without (the
foundation), this trip would not
have been possible," Boykin
said.
"I sensed Sherry's presence
with me several times as I sailed
the Aegean Sea, and I think she
knows that her vision has, been
realized for many teachers here
in Gadsden County. A couple of
times I did thank Sherry while I
was over there. The foundation is
great and has been so
supportive."
She added the trip experience
was priceless on "a lot of levels -
as a human being, a woman, a
mother, a teacher and an art


student.". Beyond her personal
returns, however,. Boykin said
she hopes to bring Greece to the
students in her classroom and
thereb\ breathe life into their-
understanding of the art,
literature and other cultural
facets there.
She is, currently building an
online "virtual tour" of Greece
and plans to have students sketch
Greek art and architecture, read
Greek literature and more.
Besides making Greece seem
moree real," Boykin said she
hopes her teaching initiatives
will help spark wonder and a


desire to experience the world
outside Gadsden County in her
students.
"I wasn't exposed to (Greek
culture) until high school, and I
still daydream about it. This
makes it seem more real," she
said.
"I want these kids to be like me
at that age wanting to go out
and tour the world. My parents

really instilled in me a
wanderlust, and I want kids to
want to get out there and go.
Whether you can actually go is
irrelevant. It's really sad, but
some students won't ever go
further than Tallahassee, and
that's how small their world is. I
want these kids to see these
places as real and not just places
in a textbook."
Boykin also plans to share her
experiences with community
organizations such as the
Kiwanis and Rotary clubs.
THE TRIP
Boykin's trip totaled nine days
and included stops throughout
the eastern Mediterranean. She
departed July 13 from
Jacksonville and admits the
thought of flying "across the
pond" took a toll on her nerves.
"My biggest source of anxiety
as departure drew near was the
thought of flying overseas -
literally. I don't know why I felt
safer flying over land, but I have
gotten over that. Overseas flights
require bigger aircraft, which are
much smoother in the air. That
was easy!" she says.
Boykin and her traveling


companion longtime friend-
Libby Fletcher-Duffy arrived in
Athens Saturday, July 14.
One of her first views in Athens
%as of the Acropolis, a high
place that includes the famous
Parthenon and other ancient
structures. A worker strike
prevented' Boykin and Duffy
from touring the whole of the
Acropolis, but Boykin says they
enjoyed a clear view of the site
every morning while eating


breakfast.
Breakfast brought an
unexpected trip highlight -
coffee. Boykin, a self-proclaimed
"coffee nut," often stopped in
cafes throughout ': her trip,
sampling the various roasts
therein.
"Everywhere I went, I thought,
'This is the best cup of coffee in

Verse of the weele:
And Ruth said, Intreat me not to leave thee. or to return from following after thee: for
whither thou goest, I will go: and where thou lodges, I will lodge: thy people shall be my
people.a hy y6d myo (iod. R uth 1: 16 (KJV')
S-Ruth the ronbite
S We can learn a lot from this young
woman Ruth. In our verse today she
'finds herself a widow and her mother-in-
law Naomi is about to return to Israel.
Instead of sending her off with a good
bye, Ruth determines in her heart to go
with Naomi. When she decided this she
was, in a sense, leaving everything
she'd ever known to move to a foreign
land and serve a foreign God. She put
her trust in Naomi, and knew that the
God of Naomi would protect her as she
had seen Him protect Naomi. Ruth later
married a man by the name of Boaz,
and they had a son they named Obed.
Obed then had a son he named Jesse,
which was the father of David. Because
of her faith in God and her desire to
serve Him, even though she was not an
Israelite, she became tied into the direct
lineage of Jesus. What an amazing
story of love and God's grace. .

a television, also known as a TV. A TV is a device that allows
you to watch live or recorded events which occur in different
places, often at different times. ATV is different from a
monitor, because it has a tuner which is capable of receiving
broadcasted television transmissions. Television programs
are mostly viewed for entertainment, but they can also be
informative and educational. News programs are on some
channels 24 hours a day, making it possibleto see what is happening around the globe,
almost as soon as it happens. Teachers use television programs in classrooms to enhance Draw your favonte TV

lectures or from reading books.
Today, almost every home has a television. but that was not always the case. It was once f
rare for homes to have TV's due to the expensive cost. The first televisions had black and
white screens, not color. They became available commercially to the public in the 1930's.
(The VCR was invented in the 1970's.) Charles Francis Jenkins,.an American inventor, was
responsible, along with many other inventors, for progress towards the invention of the
television. On June 14, 1923, he transmitted the earliest moving silhouette images. In 1924,
he transmitted clear images of the future president, Herbert Hoover, 450 miles. The image 11
started its journey in Washington, D.C., and ended in Boston, Massachusetts. Today,

Seaman Landy completes basic training

Navy Seaman Recruit Darrius D. Landy, son of Cassandra D. Landy
of Bainbridge, Ga. and Freddy Walker of Quincy, Fla., recently
completed U.S. Navy basic training at Recruit Training Command,'
Great Lakes, Ill.
During the eight-week program, Landy completed a variety of
training which included classroom study and practical instruction on
naval customs, first aid, firefighting, water safety and survival, and
shipboard and aircraft safety. An emphasis was also placed on physical
fitness.
The capstone event of boot camp is "Battle Stations". This exercise
gives recruits the skills and confidence they need to succeed in the
fleet. "Battle Stations" is designed to galvanize the basic warrior
attributes of sacrifice, dedication, teamwork and endurance in each
recruit through the practical application, of basic Navy skills and the
core values of Honor, Courage and Commitment. Its distinctly "Navy"
flavor was designed to take into account what it means to be a Sailor.
Landy is a 2004 graduate of Bainbridge High School of Bainbridge,

PAEC students visit Capitol


Rep. Curtis Richardson is
pictured with migrant students
and their teachers from the
PAEC Migrant Star Academy
at the Capitol in Tallahassee.
Rep. Richardson made it
possible for the participating
high school students to attend a
mock session and learn how a
bill is passed and other
important details of the
political process at the state
level. The PAEC Migrant
Education Program is grateful
to Rep. Richardson and his
staff for making opportunities
such as this happen for our
students.

the world,' until I-got to the next
place," Boykin said, laughing.
Boykin and Duffy spent much of
the .next two days walking around
Athens. The city of 5 million is
called "the most dangerous place
on earth," Boykin said, and
security was very high. In fact,.
one of her first "on the town"
experiences involved police
arresting some Senegalese
merchants for selling fake purses.
Nonetheless, Boykin said no ofne
was-rude to her and the Athenian
people 70 percent of whom
speak English were quite
helpful.
-While roaming Athens, Boykin
took photos for her students,
focusing a lot on texture pebbled
streets, elaborate architecture and
signs in Greek lettering and
languagee and art.
-The latter didn't include only the
'postcard" variety famous
sculpture, mosaics and other art -,
but also folksy images crudely
pointed on exterior walls. "Even
the graffiti looked good," Boykin
recalled.
-Dogs and cats roamed the
ancient city unleashed, Boykin
asided.
'Sunday was Boykin's 39th
birthday, and she and Duffy
decided to have a night on the
town that evening. After a "scary"
cb ride at speeds of up to 100
kilometers per hour, the two
feasted on a "beautiful" plate of
sEa bass.
:Their waiter told them, "I make
you deal," and brought the two
fih, a big salad and a bottle of
wine to share, all for "just 130
Euro."
-"For what we paid for it, you
would have thought it was the last
sea bass in the Aegean Sea,"
Bloykin joked, noting the U.S.
dollar is at an all-time-low against
the Euro.
:Monday, the two boarded a ship
for Mykonos, a playground for the
rich and famous. The Aegean Sea
shone a hue of "the most beautiful
blue," and the town had a sunset
that brought Boykin to tears, she
sjid.
::Mykonos is fortified by walls to
protect its people from pirates, and
its beaches were pebbly and
littered with cigarette butts from
the uncanny number of smokers


there, Boykin recalled.
Inside the town were hundreds
of houses topped with crosses.
These were actually. homes that
housed "mini" churches for
individual families. Boykin
shopped little in Mykonos, as its
stores were filled with Versace and
other expensive designer label
goods, but she did frequent the
many Internet cafes there.
While she sampled coffee,
Boykin notices that many of the
town's youth and adults played
violent computer video games for
hours in the cafes.

EPHESUS
Tuesday, the two left Mykonos
-and followed in the footsteps of
the Apostle Paul and John the


to take the tram up.
Santorini was "one of'those
places that looks like a postcard,"
-. filled. with. ornate trees and
... colorful flowers, Boykin recalled.
Rather than wait 50 minutes for
Sa tram, the two decided to walk
down the steps upon leaving, past
S hordes of people and defecating
donkeys.
S' "We found that all the donkey
S'1 poo actually gave better traction
S'thah youd 'think, nd we walked
Sd6wn, dodging donkeys coming
and going and were really proud
when we reached the bottom! It
was especially cool to look at this
view of the path and tell our new
buddy on the ship, 'hey, I just
walked down that!'" Duffy said in
S her trip blog.

Following her trip, Boykin wrote

learned to trust Libby's and not

feeling like a total dork. It was

of Ephesus in Turkey. than I ever thought it would be.
The temple and statue of Diana
sit just outside the city, and Paul
often preached against its pagan
worshippers.
Boykin and Duffy followed their
tour guide, George, around
Ephesus in blazing 102-degree
heat. Boykin said George was
"fantastic," and he even offered
her this morsel of wisdom about
her beloved Aegean coffee:
"Greeks say their coffee is best,
Turks say theirs is best, but it all
comes from Brazil."
Following their tour, Boykin and
Duffy were set upon by vendors .,..
outside the gate. They had planned ..
to spend some time shopping in
the Bazaar in Turkey, but "the
attacking merchants were like
nothing we had ever seen," .
Boykin said. ,
Many of the aggressive salesmen
repeatedly complimented Boykin
and Duffy, calling them beautiful
and asking if they were sisters. .
Since the two were not looking ,
to purchase leather, furs or gold,
they opted for the air conditioned
quarters of a caf6, had some
"gelato" a Mediterranean-style
ice cream and returned to the
ship.

After a stop in Rhodes, Boykin
and Duffy traveled to the volcanic
island of Santorini, rumored to be
home to the ancient city of '

hills, and visitors can take a tram,

I learned that I .have gotten
tunnel vision. I have been so
focused on the daily grind that I
have literally neglected to stop and
smell the roses. I kept my
daydreams, but that is' all they
were. I dreamt of going to far-
away lands, but didn't really buy
in to the idea of actually going.
Now that a dream has been
actualized I can not only dream
but plan future excursions and
focus on making them happen. I
also find myself stopping to enjoy
simple pleasures from listening to
my kids laughing loudly (rather
than begging them to settle down)
to getting up at the crack of dawn
.just to have a quiet cup of coffee
and watch the squirrels on the
deck.
I.have learned how wonderfully
diverse our planet is. Docking in
ports of call full of tourists
exposed me to people from all
parts of the world and it was fun to
try and figure out their accents, if
dot their languages. I now fully
appreciate the language courses I
took in high school and college as
well as what I used to consider my
mom's 'boring' subscription to
National Geographic. I am now
more determined to share multi-
cultural lessons and experiences
with my students in the hopes of
promoting not only tolerance, but
wonder and a sense of adventure
and desire to venture beyond the
county and state.
I learned that home will not fall
apart if I am not there for 8 days.
My kids had a wonderful week


with the grandparents and the
plants got watered.
I learned that people .are people
no matter where you go. A
cheerful smile and a hello translate
positively anywhere. I.was warned
of the dangers of Athens and
airports and while I remained alert
to my surroundings, I was not so
concerned with protecting -,my
purse that I missed the
bougainvillea draping over .a
Sbj:on., iuH'Rhodes. Moi people
had a working knowledge of
English and were very helpful
when questioned about directions,
local customs or where to find a
good sandwich. Although, if a
suave waiter offers to make you a
deal on dinner, make sure the fish
he is showing you is ori the menu
with the price next to it!
I learned that the Department of
Homeland Security is doing its job
and port agents in Turkey don't
joke around. I haven't watched the
news since I got home and that is a
major change for me, as I have
been quite the news hound for
several years. I like knowing that
the world is safer than the media
portrays it and living in fear
definitely makes life less
enjoyable.
I learned to be patient. I have no
control over grumpy airline
personnel or the weather and that I
Should eventually get home despite
both.
I could go on and on, as the
lessons were many and multi-
faceted. But I will leave it with
these thoughts that have come
foremost to mind."

TCC continues global expansion with trip to China


Continuing to expand its
reach globally, President Bill
Law is leading a delegation of
representatives from Tallahassee
Community College during a
two-week venture to China. Dr.
Barbara Sloan, Vice President
for Academic Affairs; Dr. Sally
Search, Dean, Academic
Support Programs; and Dr.
Richard Murgo, Exchange
Program Facilitator, joined
SPresident Law on the trip which
ends August 11.


The trip is serving as another
outlet for TCC to further its edu-
cational opportunities for both
faculty and staff. Through a cur-
rent partnership with Florida
State University, TCC students
can study abroad in China during
the summer semester. While
there, students study in English
and take FSU courses taught by
FSU faculty members; however,
the credits count towards their
requirements at TCC. One TCC
faculty member, Lee Kitchen, is


part of the FSU faculty contin-
gent that teaches in China. The
partnership allows students to
"gain an understanding of the
culture and meet students who
may come here to study,"
according to Sloan.
While in China, the College is
also finalizing a new partnership
of its own. Under the agreement,
TCC and Tianjin Foreign Studies
University will initiate a "faculty
exchange" program in which
TCC and TFSU will exchange


one faculty member to teach on
foreign soil for a year. Chinese
faculty 'members will teach
courses at TCC on Chinese cul-
ture and society, in addition to
the Chinese language.
Meanwhile, TCC faculty mem-
bers will enlighten the Chinese
on his or her field of expertise.
Based in Tianjin, a cosmopol-
itan port city located in northeast
China near the Bohai Gulf with a
population of 10 million, TFSU
is the academic home of close to


8,000 students studying in over
30 programs at its six schools.
The School of Sinology at TFSU
is among the earliest institutions
in China authorized by the
Chinese Ministry of Education
to accept foreign students. With
its main campus situated in
downtown Tianjin, TFSU is an
ideal site for foreign students
seeking to learn the Chinese lan-
guage and culture.
Additionally, TCC's trip to
China will result in a unique


addition to the College's already
booming enrollment. TCC offi-
cials will coordinate a pre-
admissions program with Peylng
Experimental School. Through..
the program, Chinese students
will come to TCC for intensive
language study and cultural
enrichment during the 2008
summer semester. TCC students,
primarily those who have
already studied abroad in China,
will assist with the Summer
Institute.
