on most recent candidate

by ALICEDU POINT
Times Editor
The City of Quincy hasn't had a finance director
since November 2005 and they didn't get one Tuesday
night, either. City Manager Bill Bogan introduced
Kentucky native Steven M. Gravitt. as his choice for
finance director.
SBut after just a few questions to'
Gravitt, commissioners decided to .I
table the matter until the manager
could complete the necessary)
background checks on Gravitt.
who said he had been the finance
director for the cities of
Georgetown and Frankfurt in
Kentucky. Eyebrows were raised
when Gravitt evidently did not Gravitt
know the difference between a
qualified and an unqualified audit.
i When asked if he had ever had a qualified audit,
Gravitt answered "yes, all of them." A qualified audit
means that there are problems that an outside audit has
discovered and calls them to the attention of the city or
county's governing board. A qualified audit is not a

Bogan admitted that

past few years. He said his wife wanted to return to
college to earn a degree and that the two decided to
change roles on her graduation. He had, however,

mentioned.
"I'd like to table this until the August 28 meeting to
make sure we have all of our ducks in a row," said
Commissioner Andy Gay. Other commissioners agreed
with Gay to'table the matter.

by ALICE DU POINT
Times Editor
Beryl Richardson, StepUp,
Florida! Healthy Community
Coordinator and a Chronic
Disease Health Program
Educator with the .Gadsden
County Health Department, died
Monday morning at home losing
her battle with breast cancer. She
was 60 years old.
"She was so happy here. She
found a home here," said her


husband, Ron. She was a native
of Bronx, NY, and he is a native
Texan. The couple met and
married in California and moved
to Gadsden County. four years
ago.
"I could say so much about her.
She was very resourceful. I've
never seen anyone who had so
much compassion and care for
our county. You would have
thought she was from here the
way she looked out for this
community. She wrote grants


well, she was an excellent editor.
She had such a beautiful spirit.
Everything she did, she did from
the heart."
"Her love for this community
was amazing. She had a choice in
her job. with the Center for
Disease Control (CDC) and she
chose to work and live here. The
first time we were introduced to
.Step Up Florida was through
,Beryl Richardson. She was the
one who introduced the concept
of putting the health of our


children and the schools together
and she wrote grants to see that it
was done. She was a blessing to
this community and she will
definitely be missed," said
Quincy City Commissioner
Sherrie Taylor.

construct fitness trails at two
Quincy parks, Sunset Acres and

Auditions for soap opera role set for Sunday in Tallahassee


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
It's could happen to you.
It happened to Julius Robinson of
Quincy. An audition could change
your life.

soap star, your chance is just
around the corner. This Sunday

what you've got when the "I
Wanna Be A Soap Star" folks hold
open casting for a walk-on role.
Several actors, including James
Scott and E.J. Wells of "Days of


Our Lives" and Alec Musser and
Del Henry of "All My Children"
will be on hand for the auditions.
The host of "I Wanna Be a Soap
Star" Cameron Mathison will also
be there.

potential actors and actresses from


the Tallahassee area to act out
scenes from scripts. One person
will win a trip to Los Angels and a

role in "Days of Our Lives". All
those who audition must be at least
18 years old.
A makeup artist will be there to

DISH booth Sunday.


FINANCE from Page 1


bring on board consultant Robert
Garer to help straighten out the
mess in the finance department.
Garer, who scored 100 points in
the interview, said he would not
like the to be permanent financier
director because he has two other
cities as clients.
"I've been here already five days
qualifying materials for the
auditor," Garer said. His cost is
$500 per day.
Bogan asked the commission for
permission to spend all of his time
m the financedepartment and work
there fulltime for the next few
weeks. He also asked that Garer
be allowed to work five days per
week for the next 2 to 3 months to
get the finance department in order
and to train employees.
"How can you sit here and tell


our citizens we're ready to hire a
man for three months for $30,000.?
Mayor Keith Dowdell asked.
"I'm not impressed with the city
managers presentation. I'm not
impressed with any of this," said
Commissioner Derrick Elias
referring to the manager's two
recommendations.
But Commissioner Finley Cook
tried to put the $500 per day
consulting fee into prospective.
"Our attorney is making 2 or 3
times as much. Our finances are in
dire straits and we need to get a
handle on it," Cook said.
While Bogan asked for a little
more patience to get the
department together,
Commissioner Elias suggested that
he may have too many jobs.
"You have too many irons in the


fire. You work for the City of
Gretna and you have a consulting
business; are you going to give up
those?" Elias asked.
Bogan explained that he made it
clear when he was hired that he
had a consulting business (since
1982) and that he has cut back
significantly on consulting. As for
Gretna he said he can do their
work at home from his laptop
while he's watching gof,
basketball or football.
"If you have time to do all of
these things you can do it for us,"
Elias said.
Bogan assured the commission
that the city of Quincy is not
suffering. He said he has often
worked 18 hours a day and on a
few occasions he has worked all
night to get the city up to snuff.


Commissioner Sherrie Taylor
said she had suggested to Bogan
that he should hire a firm to come
in and get the finance department
back on track and that one person
will not be able to do it. She said
she is willing to put money aside to
pay for a firm.
Problems .in the finance
department have translated directly
to the auditors' inability to get the.
audits completed. That's why
commissioners requested that the
manager bring a Request for
Proposals for a new auditing firm.
As it turns out, it isn't the auditor
but the fault lies with the city's
problems in getting the auditor
what he needs to do his job
completely and on time.
Ron Thompkins of Watson and
Rice said he could have the 2006


audit ready by early November
provided he is able to get the
necessary materials he needs to
complete the audit. Those
materials, he said, have not been
forthcoming and that he still does
not have them.
"Have we not gotten you what
you need to get to you in order for
you to complete your audit on time
and therefore we cannot meet the'
Sept. 30 deadline?" asked
Commissioner Elias of
Thompkins.
"Yes," Thompkins said.
"I appreciate your candor and
honesty," Elias replied.
Bogan said there were several
things that should have been
accomplished in the finance
department that did not happen. He
said specifically that staff had not


been able to perform the duties
they had been hired to do. There
are people, he said, who haveheld
the title of accountant but who are
not accountants. The department is
at least a year behind, according to
Bogan.
Commissioner Taylor asked
Thompkins if he got what he
needed by the end of August when
he felt he would'be able to give the
board an audit.
"Can you get it done by Oct. 31?"
she asked.
"If the information is top quality,
but given the history, that has not
been the case," Thompkins said.
Taylor said he was hoping the
audit could be completed in a
timely manner.
"We should not be in this
predicament," Elias said.


RICHARDSON from Page 1


Richardson was a great believer
in exercise and fitness. She also
sponsored events and partnered
with other organizations to bring
attention to. heart disease and
stroke prevention.
"She was the best. If you had to
find a person to work in public
service, she w as the person. There


was not place she wouldn't go.
She never met a difficult person,
she just resolved to have a little
more patience with them. When
she talked to you she looked you
in the eve to make sure she knew
what you were saving. She was
absolutely one of the kindest
person I ha\e e\er mei." said


County Commissioner Ed Dixon.
"Beryl probably was one of the
best finds for this county, in terms
of her love for the people here and
especially the children. She
brought a lot to the position that
she held. She has no sisters and
brothers and so we at the health
department. became her family,

SContemplation



You mean they actually play?
"" Yo te


- It's just around the corner. Only a few
. more weeks and I get to do one of my
'favorite things: tailgate at football
- games. This weekend my plan was to put
-' my tailgate preparedness kit together in
:.the same way as I put my hurricane
preparedness kit together the first week
... in June.
' When the party store had a sale a few
" months back, I picked up the rolls of
orange plastic for the tables and green
plates, as well as cups and napkins for
accessories. I like my tailgates color-
coordinated. I've made sure we have our
tailgating area reserved for the season.
My brother, Wallace, went through the
checklist with me this past weekend just
to be sure I, the tailgate queen, was on
top of things.
I haven't always liked tailgating. For
years I wouldn't even go to a football
game. You see, one of my first paid jobs
as a journalist was as a sports writer.
Covering football games was what I got
paid to do so I really didn't want attend
: games just for the fun of it. This whole
concept of tailgating is relatively new for
me, having taken the whole thing
seriously in the part two years.
I like a great tailgate. I want something
different. I like the wow of it all. For
our family and friends no mere hot

"I,


dogs and hamburgers dominate our
parties. While we do throw them on the
grill for folks who want them, mainly
children, we have moved so far beyond
that.
Friday night I will will pull down, from
my library of cookbooks, a number of
them to study. I'm looking for unique
tailgate food that is different, but easy to
make on site or easy to prepare at home
and transport. My menus for the season
will come from those cookbooks, as will
the staples that go with any good
tailgating party. This year, I think I will
also offer desserts, something I haven't
done in the past.
I am a season ticket holder, but
whether I will see a single down played
on the gridiron is a different story. Most
likely I will make my, way into the .
stadium by halftime, watch the band
perform and then make my exit. Of
course, the people who have seats near
me already know when I arrive and
leave, so it's something of a joke in my
section where there are some pretty.
intense football fans.
I'm able to take the oppressive heat we
have been experiencing this week and
last because I know that after the Dog
Days of summer the fall and tailgating
are only a few weeks away.


Hunker down

with ?



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. .

Swe .ting w.4 Lucinda..
Sweating with Lucinda!:


.I tell you what I really hated about the dog
days of August. My orange sherbet push-up
would melt before I could finish it! I can still
feel that sticky goo on my fingers fifty-two
years after the fact. Sometimes we'd have to run
three blocks to catch the ice cream truck. Me
and Ricky Lynn would be so out of breath we'd
Just point to the ice box with the push-ups. Mr..
;Holland knew what we were after. But, I'm
telling you, when it was 110 degrees in the
shade, no matter how fast you attacked that
thing---you couldn't keep some of it from
melting on you!
It got so hot one August we quit the baseball.
game after only the forty-third inning!
SDuke, Fireball and Sassy wouldn't come out
From under the porch. Rabbits and squirrels tip-
Stoed freely up to.the back door looking for a
Sand out..Those dogs wouldn't move! A big fox
sashayed through the hen house. They didn't
even look up. .Leon would catch an alley cat

and sling it under the house. Our trio of red hot
Shunters didn't so much as twitch a muscle.
Those crazy dogs weren't interested. It was just
too hot to trot! They would, however, howl like
the blue blazes late in the afternoon when the
flies went to settling on them.
No wonder they named the season after them!
It wouldn't do us no good to go inside. The
only thing that had air condition in our little
town was the Park Theatre. And we only got to
go to the picture show about every other
Saturday..
SEvery where you walked you would kick up
* little clouds of dust. By mid afternoon you
.'could plant corn in the dirt rings under your
Sneck. You'd look down the blacktop road and
Syou could actually see the heat dancing above
Sthe pavement. I heard stories 'bout folks frying
eggs on the sidewalk and cooking cornbread on
the business end of a hoe. I reckon it was hot
. enough for those things to occur but I never
actually saw either. It was way too hot to eat an
egg scrapped up off the sidewalk!
People migrated to the shade; be it from a big
oak in the front yard, the roof over Woodrow
Kennon's porch, the rail road bridge or the
awning in front of Brummitt's Funeral Home.
My favorite was the shade from the
overhanging trees in the big ditch down behind
George Sexton's house. The ditch had dried up
way before July was half over and you couldn't
get any breeze down there, but it was sure
cooler than most spots. If it hadn't a'been for
the rattlesnakes I would have moved down
there. And I was a little frightened by the
swamp creature Leon said lived in those woods.
Nights were just as bad, if not worse. We'd
Open the windows and the doors. Wet the
sheets. Sleep out on the porch. It didn't matter!
Dog days didn't take no break as to time of day
or current disposition of the people affected.
It was so hot our radio reception was near
'bout a lost cause. I reckon those shimmering


heat waves created some serious interference
problems for the radio signal. Every time Fibber
Magee was about to explain "things" to Molly,
our old Zenith would fade out. Kingfish would
have a great plan that wasn't going to cost Andy
a dime....but we couldn't get the particulars.
The Lone Ranger chased.Butch Cavendish and
his gang into the box canyon but we don't know
to this day who came out alive.....
Daddy would naturally pick this time of year
to get the hay in. It was the dirtiest, nastiest and
hottest job oh the farm. I think he saw it as
some kind of contest. He was pitting Leon,
David Mark and me against the elements! And
there was no let up in Dad. He'd wipe the sweat
off his brow with one hand while he tossed a
ninety pound bale up on the wagon with the
other, "Let's move boys. Faster! We want to get'
the hay in before the rain comes."
We'd check the sky and moan. It hadn't
rained in a month! What was he talking about?
Farmers back in those days tended to prepare
for the worst. I think it was a lingering effect
from the great depression. Or maybe he just
wanted to see us sweat.....
I'm telling you, the peanuts we pulled straight
from the ground were already parched.
If dog days "hung on" till September we
picked cotton in that heat. It was the dirtiest,
nastiest and hottest job on the farm (It tied with
hauling hay). The ground blistered your feet
while the sun broiled your topside..I've seen
half eaten lobsters that looked better than we
did!
We got to dating a few years later. I enjoyed it
most of the time. Except it could be a little
dicey come dog days..... I'd be sweating like a
greased pig on a spit by the time I got to
Lucinda Creeding's front door. And that wasn't
the bad part. She would be sweating even' more
as we pulled into Frank's Dairy Bar! Whew! I
had to sit up-wind of her as she wolfed down a
double cheese burger and fries. And, as you can
imagine, she didn't exactly give off a romantic
glow when we got back to her porch.
I told her it wouldn't hurt my feelings none if
she dated Lonnie Short until Thanksgiving!
I've seen it so hot that one rooster would crow
in the mornings and the rest would just slightly
nod their heads in agreement. I've seen mules
reject the harness. I was there when Miss Elsie
Pennyworth was "overcome" by the heat right
in the middle of Bro. Hatcher's sermon. I've
seen daffodils' refuse to "daffle". I've had those
little spots dance before my eyes. I've seen

Snake oil, or the real thing?


The sign is stunning in its simplicity:
Snake repellent.
That, and a phone number.
It's enough to send hope coursing
through the veins of a reptile phobic like
me.
Hand-drawn, in bold letters, it makes a
statement.
"I will save you from ever seeing the
first creepy crawly serpent on your
property," it whispers.enticingly.
Imagine my delight when I called the
number on the sign and was told the
concoction used to repel snakes a
"pyrectin spray" followed by a copious
application of mothballs is also good
for keeping armadillos away.
Be still, my beating heart.
Then again, if you google "pyrectin"
you come up with some interesting sites
- trust me on this and the closest I
could get to finding the word in the
dictionary was "pyretic," which means,
"having or causing a fever," as well as'
"any substance that can cause a rise in
body temperature."
I don't care what their body
temperature is as long as they have it
somewhere out of my sight.
The guy who answered the phone when
I called the number on the sign said he
will put repellent around and under your
house for $40 only on Sundays, by the
way and vows the concoction "keeps
'em away."
"It does," he insists when I question

him. "It'll keep armadillos away too."
Any other pests?
"It doesn't work too good on squirrels,"
he says, a bit sorrowfully.
Intrigued, I looked for other snake
repellents on the Internet there are
others, of course, need you ask?
One site offers glue traps for snakes.
I really, seriously, honestly, I promise
you, I am not kidding about this, do not
want a snake stuck to a piece of glue
paper in my yard.
I don't even want to know about a
.snake stuck to a piece of glue paper in
someone ELSE'S yard.
One Internet product claims to keep
snakes away by messing with the
creature's Jacobson organ and interfering-
with its sensory reception ability.
Another thing I would rather not spend
a lot of time considering: That snakes
have, and use, sensory receptors.
It all sounds like so much, and please
pardon the pun, snake oil to me, but I
guess you never know until you try.
And with my luck, any snakes whose
Jacobson organs were damaged as a
result of the heavy application of snake
repellentin my yard would band together
with an assortment of irritated armadillos
and miffed moths to inflict a seven-year,
if slightly off course, reign of terror.
I think, if I find an extra $40, I'll spend
it on a new pair of glasses.
That way, at least I'll be able to see all
the snakes scooting through the grass.


Letters

to the

Ecitor

Editor:

As an employee of Communities in Schools of
Gadsden Count)' I urge allparents to volunteer
or mentor a child 1 hour per week. The children
in Gadsden County need our 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
wonderful county 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 of a child's success in
school, and ultimately throughout life is not
family status, educational level, income or IQit
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.

Calling


all bridge


builders

By Charles Bierbauer
"On the road again." Sing it,
Willy Nelson. "Just can't wait to get
on the road again."
Willy and I must travel different
roads, though we were together the
other night tooling down US 25 in
Georgia between Augusta and
Savannah. I logged 460 miles on a
two-day circle from Columbia,
S.C., to Augusta, to Hilton Head
via Savannah, and back to
Columbia. In Georgia, there was
lots of highway construction and
little nighttime traffic. In.South
Carolina, there was rough road and
plenty of sluggish traffic. Just
couldn't wait to get off the road
again. You can't help wondering
about the nation's infrastructure
when we have a bridge collapse on
the Interstate in Minneapolis, pipes
. erupting through the streets of New
York and airports looking like
refugee camps filled with stranded
passengers. Each has separate
causes and consequences. What
ties them together is the strong
impression we are not taking good
care ofthe things we depend on in
so many ways.
It is as though the throwaway
society that we have become when
it comes to plastic water bottles,
cell phones and auto parts-nah, we .
can't fix that fuel pump; we'll have
to replace it!-has led us to forget
that some things must have fixing
and routine, maintenance. We tear
down 40-year-old building or
stadium because it is no longer
stylish and invest hundreds of
millions of dollars in new ones so
we.can live, work and entertain
ourselves in comfort. Yet, as in
Minneapolis, you can't get to the
ball park when the bridge is out.
In this election season, Ifind
myself turning to the presidential
candidates to see if any have ideas,
plans, solutions for.our growing
problems.
Mindful that all problems are not
federal matters-Interstate highway
maintenance is also a state
responsibility-I'd still like to have
confidence in national leadership.
The Democratic candidates had
an opportunity to show their insight
and ingenuity an the infrastructure
problem at this week's AFL-CIO
sponsored debate in Chicago. For
the most part, they disappointed .
Sen. Hillary Clinton proposes
spending $3:8 billion a.year as a
"down payment" on a $1 trillion
problem. (South Carolina alone has
a $3 billion backlog of highway
work, the Greenville News reported
this week, citing Department of
Transportation figures.)
Sen. Joe Biden said he proposed a
$20 billion infrastructure bill in
1992. "We don't need any more
studies," Biden said.
Gov. Bill Richardson said he was
able to put $1.5 billion into
highway and bridge construction in
New Mexico and called for a
federal/state/local partnership.
Sen. Chris Dodd said "putting our
country back to work begins by
cutting the funding'for the war in
Iraq."
The Democratic candidates
generally described fixing the
infrastructure in terms of jobs.
Dodd: "For every $1 billion we
Sspend.40,000 jobs can be created."
Jobs may be what moves the AFL-
CIO audience, but how many
bridges might $1 billion restore?
How many lives might it spare?
The candidates' web sites don't
help much. Infrastructure doesn't
usually make their issues lists. Sen.
John Edwards continues to lament-
deservedly-the slow pace of
rebuilding New Orleans after
Hurricane Katrina. Hillary Clinton
has an "innovation agenda" that
includes an increased "research
focus on the physical sciences and'
engineering."
Sen. Barack Obama's web site
invites questions. So I sent an e-
mail asking the Senator's approach
to infrastructure needs. And I got a
prompt reply.
"Dear Charles.your priorities,
experiences and perspectives are
important to me," it started. After
four paragraphs of campaign
boilerplate, it concluded:
"Although I am unable to address
each of the concerns raised in these
communications individually, you
can be assured that collectively
they are helping shape my vision of
where our country should go."
Not what I was looking for, but
nice to get a response. I almost
can't wait to get on the road again.

Request to use community


center draws questions



Boys and Girls Club representative asks to use facility;

commissioner wants more time before making decision


KgEVIEU w istaush:Ow. f


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

At the end of what was
already. a marathon Quincy
City Commission meeting,
Sandra Gilley of the Boys and
Girls Club of the Big Bend
announced that the organiza-
tion would like to use the
Kelly-Campbell Community
Center temporarily as a host
site.
There was one problem and
it was a big one. Commissioner
Sherrie Taylor, who represents
District 2 where the center is
located, knew nothing absolute-
ly about the plans.
"This is news to me. I have a
problem with it at this time,"
she said citing the fact that the
center is already heavily used
for various recreation depart-
ment programs used and is
rented often to citizens for all
kinds of social events such as
birthday parties, wedding
receptions, meetings, and other
general purpose functions.
Gilley said that the Club
would provide a fulltime active
program for children 3 p.m. to
6:30 p.m. five days a week. She
could not say how long "temp6-
rary" use would be in effect
when asked by Cmmisioner
Derrick Elias. The club, Gilley
said, would adjust its hours
when the center was to be rent-
ed.
"That concerns me even
more. Children need continuity
and parents depend on the
hours of operation to be what
you say they are. There are two
programs in that community
going on already and doirg the


same as you : l I-|
say you're :
going to do," ,; I
Taylor said.
She is the.
executive
director of
Children Are
Our Future. Taylor
Inc. (after
school and summer programs)
and also operates a 21st
Century after school program
site on the upper level where
the Kelly-Campbell Center is
located.
"We are not here to be in
competition with any other pro-
grams. We are not here to com-
pete with the 21st Century
Program (an after school pro-
gram for children enrolled in
public schools). We have met in
Round Table discussions and
we have sat down with the
school board," Gilley said,
adding "the 21st Century
Porgam is limited to a certain
criteria."
"Thats not true," Taylor cor-
rected Gilley on the 21st
Century Program concept and
who can partiticpate. Why did-
n't the school Board offer you a.
site?" asked Taylor.
She said that in recent
weeks complaints about the
condition at the center have
come before the commission.
"There are problems there
with clean up and to bring in
even more traffic, I'm dead set
against it. This was to be a
community center. I need to
talk to my constituents about
whether they want that many
more people in the area,"
Taylor said after the meeting. ,


She felt that as the represen-
tative for District, 2 she should
have been consulted about
adding such a program in the
district. She would like to have
had the opportunity, she said, to
talk with her constituents about
the plans, some of whom live
directedly across the street
from the center.
"I was taking my cue from
the Mayor (Keith Dowdell),"
said City Manager Bill Bogan.
But during all of the discussion
Dowdell made no comments on
any discussion he. had been
involved in on the subject of
the placement of a Boys and
Girls Club.
Taylor said the clubs had
been turned down recently by
several churches in the area and
that she is concerned about
what they can bring additional-
ly to the community.
"I have ,heard some good
things about what you all do
and I commend them for that.
But it has it's place," Taylor
said.
At the end of the discussion
the matter was simply dropped
with Taylor simply thanking
Gilley for attending the meet-
ing.
Several months ago, Bogan
said at a joint meeting with
county and city officials, that
he would not be able to recom-
mend that the City of Quincy
commit to giving $35,000 a
year for the next seven years to
help fund the organization's cite
in Quincy because there were
already similar programs the
county. He made no recommen-
dation Tuesday night, but then,
he was aksed for one either.

City tables waste plan


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

The City of Quincy is sup-
posed to have Waste Pro as its
solid waste services provider
come October.
But Tuesday night, during its
regular meeting, the contract
was not agreed upon and tabled.
The Longwood, Fla. based
company is ready to begin, but
a few snags had commissioners
skeptical before agreeing
wholeheartedly with staff. Plus,
the commission had a few
basic, but very important
decisions, to make, such as how
many times a week garbage
will be picked up and whether
or not recycling will be manda-
tory.
In the end, a majority of the
commisisoners voted for twice
weekly pickup and no mandato-
ry recycling. Citizens can con-
tinue participating the the coun-
ty's current recycling program
at a cost of $2 per month.
The cost of the new service
will be $23.75 per month.
Mayor Keith Dowdell
warned that there will be com-
plaints when utility bills rise a
few dollars because of the
increased rate.
Here are some of the high-
lights of what Waste-Pro has to
offer:
*All new residential barrels
and commerical dumpsters.


New trucks with the City of
Quncy's logo on the side.
*Contract calls for penalties
for missed service.
*Rear loading trucks. Spills
will be cleaned up immediately
and barrels will not be damages
or knocked over into the street.
*Deduction to the residential
rate at the end of five years
relating to barrels.
*Waste-Pro will have a local
office.
*The .city will continue to
bill customers.
Ralph Mills, regional vice
presdient for Waste-Pro said the
company is committed to hiring
locally. Of the fifty employees,
10 live in Quincy and 20 live in
Gadsden County. Preference,
he said, will be give to Gadsden
County residents for employ-
ment.
In other matters commis-
sioners said they had received
complaints from citizens about
the high utility bills again.
"I don't know what to tell
people when their bills have
doubled and nothing has
changed," said Commissioner
Taylor. She said she went to a
woman's home and the house
was hot because the woman had
no air conditioning. Still Taylor
said, her bill was extremely
high.
"How can you get a $200 bill
one month and $1,300 the next.
Nobody caught that?" asked


Mayor Dowdell.
Bogan said the issue the
Mayor referred to was a result
of a meter reader reading the
wrong meter and that the prob-
lem had been corrected.
"That's what I mean, it
should have been caught. Is
there no sensitivity at City
Hall?" Mayor Dowdell asked.
Bogan said that several
billing problems had been
caught and that the aim of the
city is to basically be error free.
.But Mayor Dowdell said its the
errors that cause citizens to
think that their utility bills are
going to pay off loans.
It may sound funny, but
there is nothing comical about a
problem some people who live
in the Circle Drive area are hav-
ing these days.
It's chickens.
Commisisoner Elias said
chickens are running loose in
the area and that some of them
are "downright vicious." The
feathered culprits apparently
belong to a resident of nearby
Hillside Trailer Park. The ani-
mals have become a problem.
SPolice Chief Gerald
McSwain said he would
address the problem right away
by notifying animal control
officers. He said the animals
,will be trapped and the owners
will have three days to claim
then. After that, McSwain said,
their fate is unknown.

The Way the heat index has hit late-

If the football players that survive

8 The Gadsden County Times August 16, 2007


State of the district


By Brian Dekle
Times staff writer

The air in the East Gadsden High School gym was elec-
tric Tuesday morning as Gadsden County teachers and
administrators danced, clapped, hooted and 'hollered' in
celebration of a new school year, which officials say they
expect to be the best ever.
The Gadsden County School Board's annual "State of
the District Meeting" was themed "Leading and Teaching
with Passion," and from tears shed to erratic dancing and
joyful chants, passions ran high among the hundreds of
educators gathered there.
Richard Ramsey, a nationally renowned speaker and
author, encompassed the epitome of passion as he shouted
from the stage Tuesday.
"Have a passion for what you do. If you don't love
teaching children, you're in the wrong place," Ramsey told
the audience.
"Everybody deserves a good teacher and good teaching
doesn't come from behind the desk; it comes from behind
the heart."
Following Ramsey's speech, teachers, faculty and staff
adorned in their school colors danced, sang, clapped and
yelled motivational chants as their school was called dur-
ing "roll call."

World Changers 2007


At the end of July, twenty-two stu-
dents and seven adults from the First
Baptist Church of Quincy traveled to
Gastonia, North Carolina for their
summer mission trip. These students
and adults spent their week making
repairs on.homes for the citizens of
Gastonia. The construction work
included painting, roofing, installing
windows, building handicap ramps,
and much more. Students also visit-
ed residents throughout the commu-
nity to pray for them and share the
love of Jesus Christ with them.
Sophomore Erin Sampson said, "This
trip gives us the chance to help those
who are in need."
Prior to making the trip to
Gastonia, the students of First Baptist
Church worked on the house of a local
Gadsden County family to prepare
them for their week-long work in
North Carolina.

Three years ago I obtained my Florida

Decline of

tree just

another

symptom

of Florida's

vanishing

native


landscape



By BRIAN DEKLE
Times staff writer
"There weren't no elbow
room down by the bank 'coz of
dem trees," a Gadsden County
old timer remembers as he spits
the dark juice from his red man
and stabs another squirmy
nightcrawler onto his hook.
As the man, who said he
"reckoned he don't want his
name in the paper," casts his
bait into the stately
Apalachicola River in western
Gadsden County, he recalls the
day when "dem trees" the
Florida Torreya were
abundant in these parts.
Just fifty or so years ago the
Torreya taxifolia a small
conical tree. with whorled
branches and evergreen needle-
like leaves dominated- the
bluffs and ravines along the
Appalachicola River.
There were so many robust
specimens back in those days
that locals used them for
shingles, firewood, fence posts
and even Christmas trees. Even
with all this harvesting, the
trees .kept .coming back in
droves year after year.
But somewhere along the way
the grand torreyas disappeared
and all that largely remain in
the wild are runts and anemic
shoots, distributed in waning
sites in Gadsden and Liberty
County, and to a lesser degree,
Decatur County, Ga.
This sudden vanishing
prompted the United States Fish
and Wildlife Service to declare
the Florida Torreya an
endangered species, but the
plant still faces perils.
The decline of the Florida
Torreya in its native habitat
may ultimately be due to

for this part of the world and
more like things you'd see in
the Carolinas stems from an
ancient glaciation and "refugia"
- an area in which a population
of organisms can survive
through a period of unfavorable
conditions.
Glaciations in this area, which
may have formed the high
bluffs of the Apalachicola,
brought atypical life and left a
Gadsden County (and
surrounding areas) lush with
unusual plant varieties as
glaciers receded.
WHY PROTECT PLANTS
Many people drive down
roads never taking a second
glance on the vegetation that
grows on the roadside.
Likewise, many people see
little point in protecting plants.
After all, they're not cuddly and
some aren't even interesting to


surrounding areas are home to
16 Federally endangered and
'threatened plant species and
204 state protected species.
Some plants are so rare they
exist nowhere else in the world
but tiny plots surrounding the
Apalachicola River or
elsewhere. Some are so elusive
they bloom just a week out of
the year.
Seeking out these obscure
natural gems has become a
passion for Boothe. His home is
filled with images of radiant
flowers and rare treasures, and
with a wide, toothy grin he
explains a little something
about each where he bagged
the image, the sometimes-
surprising characteristics of the
plant, etc.
The areas around the
Apalachicola River where
Boothe frequents are more than
just "photo-op hot spots,"
however. According to the
Nature Conservancy, the
striking array of habitats,
plants, fish, reptiles and
amphibians in the Apalachicola
River basin make it one. of the
top six biodiversity "hot spots"
in the United States.
Much of the biodiversity and
abundance of plants and
animals that seem out-of-place


look at to the average eye.
But much of modern day
medicine and other products
stem from plants. As more and
more plant varieties fall to
extinction each day, that's one
less potential opportunity
people have to find a cure for a
disease from the molecules
within these plants.
Plants also bring tourist
dollars to Gadsden County and
nearby areas as pitcher plants
and other interesting and
beautiful varieties bloom.
For these and countless other
reasons, it is imperative that we
not only protect our native
animals; but plants, as well
And landowners needn't fear
if protected plant species grow
on their properties.
The government typically
can't obligate any landowner to
do one thing or another with his
or her property, whether or not
it contains protected plants.
Thus, the best course of action
for landowners is to allow our
rare plants to thrive for this and
future generations.

verse of the weeqz:
Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.
Proverbs 22:6 (KJV)
Training for Champions
Training entails a lot of time and
energy. Everyone is training
focused when you think about it.
You have all types of training; there
is weight, dog, job, sports, and
more various types of training.
Today in our verse we're talking
about training up children. This is
not the easiest task in the world, as
children do not come with
instruction manuals. However
God's word does promise us that if
we train them in the way they
should go, that when they are old
hey will not depart from it. Children
learn best by example, so be a
good example to them and let them
see Jesus in you. Don't just take
them to church, go to church with
them and see what wonderful
things God has in store for your
family.

FamiLy TLvve Th&s Week:

"U2-charist" at
Episcopal Church

A service of worship using the
music of U2 called the "U2-
charist" is 5 p.m., Sunday, Sept.
16 at Episcopal Church of the'
Advent, 815 Piedmont Drive.
A U2-charist is a Service of
Holy Communion using the
music of the popular band, U2.
Music will be performed live by
Tucker Biddlecombe (the Choral
Director of Lawton Chiles High
School) and other local musi-
cians.
The U2-charist will stress U2's
message of global reconcilia-
tion, justice for the poor and
oppressed, and the importance of
caring for our neighbor. Our
agreement with U2's publishing
company is that any offering
taken at the service is given to a
charity that is fighting extreme
poverty or AIDS.
Oui three previous U2-charists
have raised over $3,300 toward
the cause of eradicating poverty.
For more information, check
our website, www.advent-
church.org, or call one of the
Episcopal Church sponsors:
Advent (386-5109); Holy
Comforter (877-2712); St.
Francis (562-1595); St. John's

B-UGV BUGS AND IAR MJGS!
Did you know that insects are the largest group of animals on Earth? There are
more insects on Earth than all other animals combined. Currently, around one million
insect species have been discovered! Insects are animals that have six legs, three
tagmata, or body sections, and no backbone. They are members of the Arthropod
family, Most of them are quite small, weighing less than an ounce. They breathe
through a network of small tubes within their bodies, which are called trachea
8'm 11 I 1 Some common insects known to the United States are ants, flies, mosquitoes,
Ibees, butterflies, and grasshoppers. Spiders are not true insects; they are members
of the Arachnid family, which includes ticks, mites, and scorpions. Millipedes and
centipedes are also discluded from the true insect group.
There are many different kinds of insects. Some fly, some swim, and some walk.
They can live in the Arctic or in the tropical rain forests The smallest adult insect
currently known to science is the Myramid wasp, which measures just over one-
tenth of a millmeter in length. This wasp is a parasite which is native to the illinois
area of the United States. The largest insect currently known to man is the Giant
Weta from New Zealand it is a giant scarab which weighs two and a half ounces,
and its body is four inches long (with legs and antenna It measures around eight or
nine inches in length). u yu WORO I (y R 1

New VA's suicide hot line begins operations


To ensure veterans with
emotional crises have round-the-
clock access to trained
professionals, the Department of
Veterans Affairs (VA) has begun
operation of a national suicide
prevention hot line for veterans.
"Veterans need to know these
VA professionals are literally a
phone call away," said Secretary
of Veterans Affairs Jim Nicholson
said. "All service members who
experience the stresses of combat
can have wounds on their minds
as well as their bodies. Veterans
should see mental health services
as another benefit they have
earned, which the men and
women of VA are honored to
provide."
The toll-free hot line number is


1-800-273-TALK (8255). VA's
hot line will be staffed by mental
health professionals in
Canandaigua, N.Y. They will
take toll-free calls from across the
country and work closely with
local VA mental health providers
to help callers.
To operate the national hot line,
VA is partnering with the
Substance Abuse and Mental
Health Services Administration of
the Department of Health and
Human Services (HHS).
"The hot line will put veterans
in touch any time of the day or
night, any day of the week, from
anywhere in the country with
trained, caring professionals who
can help," .'added Nicholson.
"This is another example of the


VA's commitment to provide
world-class health care for our
nation's veterans, especially
combat veterans newly returned
from Iraq and Afghanistan."
The suicide hot line is among
Several enhancements to mental
health care that Nicholson has
announced this year. In mid July,
the Department's top mental
health professionals convened in
the Washington, D.C., area to
review the services provided to
veterans of the Global War on


Terror.
VA is the largest provider of
mental health care in the nation.
This year, the Department will
spent about $3 billion for mental
health.
More than 9,000 mental health
professionals, backed up by
primary care physicians and other
health professionals in every VA
medical center and outpatient
clinic, provide mental health care
to about 1 million veterans each
year.

Fla. CFO offers



answers about



insurance laws


Wal-Mart donation


Florida Chief Financial Officer
Alex Sink announced today that
Florida's auto insurance
consumers can log onto her Web
site, MyFloridaCFO.com, and
click on the "Life without No-
Fault" link-to learn about the new
insurance laws in effect after the
sunset of No-Fault.
In absence of legislative action,
Florida's Motor Vehicle No-Fault
Law will expire on Oct. 1, 2007,
along with the requirement to
purchase Personal Injury
Protection (PIP) coverage.
Beginning Oct. 1, whether
someone is at fault in an accident
could make all the difference as
to which driver will be liable to
pay for damages.
"The best advice we can give to
consumers is to purchase enough
auto insurance coverage to
provide proper medical treatment
for themselves and their
families," said CFO Sink, who
oversees the Department of
Financial Services. "In the event
someone is at fault in an accident
after the expiration of No-Fault,
sufficient auto insurance
coverage can help protect that
family's financial assets."
"Life without No-Fault"
contains useful information for


Florida consumers, such as
answers to frequently asked
questions and the definitions of
popular insurance terms.
Floridians can review a chart,
courtesy of the Ft. Myers News-
Press, detailing which driver in
an accident is liable for payment
of injuries or damages.
Additionally, consumers will find
CFO Sink's previous outline of
policy considerations in a post-
No-Fault world.
One of the largest changes for
consumers will be that payment
for injuries -sustained during an
accident will now be the financial
responsibility of the at-fault
driver.
Under the current No-Fault
Law, Florida drivers and motor
vehicle operators are required to
carry PIP coverage, which would
pay the first $10,000 of the
drivers' (and their passengers')
medical costs, regardless of fault.
CFO Sink also operates a
consumer helpline that receives
more than 450,000 calls annually
from Florida's insurance and
financial consumers, many of
whom have begun to ask about
the upcoming changes in
Florida's auto insurance laws.


Army Reserve launches

new recruiting initiative


Wal-Mart of Quincy recently donated $2,000 to the Gadsden County School District. The district purchased boxes of school uniforms
for students with the funds. Pictured is Audrey Lewis-Potter, district parent services coordinator (r), and Jewell Jackson, Wal-Mart
community coordinator (1).

Army Reserve Soldiers may
become recruiting assistants to
work at the grassroots level to
recruit in their communities, where
they work and live.
"Soldiers, you can earn
$2000.00, while helping the Army
Reserve fill its ranks", said Lt.
Gen. Jack C. Stulz, Chief, Army
Reserve when he announced the
launch of the Army Reserve
Recruiting Assistance Program.
AR-RAP will allow individual
Army Reserve Soldiers to earn
financial incentives up to $2,000
for each successful recruiting
effort. .
Unlike traditional Army
recruiting methods, AR-RAP
involves Army Reserve unit
members working on their own
time to conduct recruiting in
partnership with a contractor for
non-prior and prior service recruits
who contract and later complete
training requirements.
To become a Recruiting
Assistant, Soldiers must first
complete on-line training with the
program's contractor. Upon
completing the on-line training,
Soldiers will become certified as
RAs and are immediately available
to begin conducting their
personalized recruiting efforts.
Once certified, RAs receive a
welcome kit and a recruiter store
account from which to order
marketing materials to support
recruiting efforts.
The Recruiting Assistants are
expected to work with their
prospective Army Recruits
throughout their accession process,
but are not authorized to make
legally binding commitments
regarding bonuses, incentives or
guarantee specific jobs upon
joining the Army Reserve.
Eventually, all prospects will be
linked with full-time Army
Reserve recruiters, who will assist
RAs by administering the contract
process, and schedule required
medical and aptitude tests for
recruits prior to their accession.
The RAs will also serve as
mentors to recruits until they
depart for basic training; preparing
them for military service.
The Army Reserve Recruiting
Assistance Program was launched
to increase the number of Soldiers


recruited into the Army Reserve;
essentially making every Soldier a
potential recruiter. AR-RAP
leverages the talents of Army
Reserve Soldiers by allowing them
to conduct their own recruiting
efforts within their local
community to increase exposure
of the Army Reserve and inform'
members .of the community
regarding the benefits of joining
the Army Reserve.
The benefits of joining the Army
Reserve include money for college
under the Montgomery GI Bill,
student loan repayment programs,
tuition assistance,. and possible
enlistment and re-enlistment
bonuses (depending on military
occupational specialty).
The Army Reserve offers many
career opportunities as well as
several leadership development
and civilian-skills related training,
which are valuable and marketable
for private sector employment.
Also, security clearances
obtained while in the Army
Reserve, and drug free status make
AR Soldiers particularly valued by
employers. Additionally, there is
the opportunity to earn a
retirement income, after 20 years
of qualifying service with monthly
payments at age 60, and participate
in a thrift savings program (similar
to a 401K program), allowing
regular contributions which are
taken off the top of Reserve
earnings, lowering pre-tax income.
For more information on Army
Reserve Recruiting Assistance
Program, you may log-on to
www.AR-RAP.com.
(Disclaimer: Recruiting
Assistants are not authorized to
guarantee or commit to specific
incentives, MOS career fields, or
bonuses on behalf of the
Army/Army Reserve. As a RA
you, in effect, serve as a
subcontractor of the AR-RAP
contractor and must complete the
official sign-up of applicants
through a designated Army
Recruiter.
You must conduct recruiting
efforts on your own time and are
not authorized to conduct RA
duties in any type of official
military duty status or to use
government resources in the
performance of RA duties).

provided construction manage-
ment services.
"This beautiful new school
represents a pathway for an
entire community to learn and
grow," said Gadsden County
School Superintendent Reginald
James. "We expect the school to
serve as a gathering place where
the community will come togeth-
er to support our students, facul-.
ty and staff in our continuous
efforts to build a brighter future."
Ajax, which also built East
Gadsden High, was delighted
with the $490,650'in savings,
exceeding its own savings goal


for the project. With these sav-
ings, the project was able to add
a Department of Health clinic

ing, a perimeter fence and side-
walks along Hwy 12 and Hwy

payers.
"The end result of our part-

rooms and labs of this wonderful
new school," said Ajax President
Bill Byrne. "We're delighted to
be a part of enhancing the learn-

at the same time help Gadsden

Greensboro High before it was
melded into West Gadsden in
2004, calls this a homecoming.
"This is a special school for
the community and me. This
school reflects the history we
should embrace and a future we
canlook forward to," said Lewis.
"By offering our students the lat-
est tools for learning, this school
and these students will lead the
community into the 21st century.
The community should be very
proud of this school and we look
forward to challenging our stu-
dents to be their very best."
The high tech campus ushers
in an exciting time for Gadsden


County, i noted Congressman
Allen Boyd (D-FL).
"The new West Gadsden
High School has been a long
time coming, but it was well
worth the wait. This is an excit-
ing .day for the people of
Gadsden County and for the
young people who will be' edu-
cated here," said Boyd.
"With state-of-the-art tech-
nology and a modem infrastruc-
ture, the school ushers in a new
era of public education in the
county and will help to move the
community forward. I am proud
to support the Gadsden County
School District's efforts to raise
the bar. They certainly have.done
so."
