County


approves


Foxchase
by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
Despite the pleas of residents, the Board of
County Commissioners gave conceptual
approval of the Plantation at Foxchase. The
800-acre development is located west of Glory
Road, south of Shade Farm Road and north of
Timmons Road. Part of it borders the Farms at
Quincy, about four miles north of the Quincy
city limits.
John Due, a retired attorney, and his ,wife
own a home in the area and worry about the
effect more than 100 septic tanks will have on
the environment, traffic, and quality of life in
the rural setting.
Due listed several reason why the county
should deny the developer conceptual
approval.

Sheriff brings in expert to assess jail deficiencies


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
Since the day he took office, Sheriff
Morris Young has said'the county jail
is. so woefully underfunded,
understaffed, arid in need of expansion
and repair that he has no choice but to
bring the problem to the attention of
the Federal Department of Justice.


Last Thursday, Young sent a letter to
the Department of Justice requesting
an evaluation of the Gadsden County
Jail. He also sent copies to Gov.
Charlie Crist, Sen. Al Lawson, and
Rep. Curtis Richardson.
The letter, he said, was the result of
concerns raised by inmates about the
living conditions at the jail. The staff
also wanted the department to review


and evaluate the facility.
"These concerns fall within the
general areas of health, safety, and
general welfare of inmates and the jail
staff." Young worte.
The responsibility of the jail rests
with the Board of County
Commissioners. But, as sheriff of the
county, Young is responsible for the
day-to-day operations at the jail.


During a press conference at the jail
Friday morning, Young introduced
Ned Hafner from the Florida Sheriffs
Association. Young said he asked
Hafner to make a site inspection and to
offer advice on how to remedy the
problems.
"The biggest problem is lack of:

staffing for the two control rooms
and there is tremendous
overcrowdedness. The facility
needs to be expanded," Hafier
said.
The jail was built to house 157
inmates but on most days there are
between 240 and 250 inmates,
Young said. That coupled with not
enough corrections officers make
conditions at the jail bad for
inmates and staff.
The problem could be alleviated
with more money from the Board
of County Commissioners.
Currently the jail is overbudget by
$400,000. The bulk of the budget
is spent on medical care, food, and
cleaning supplies. Young worries
that this year, with the expected
budget cuts, the jail will fall further
and further behind financially.
Brenda Holt, County
Commission Chairman said the
board should do the jail's budget.
"I feel if he board is responsible for
the jail, they should do the budget.


That way we could track it from
month-to-month and we would
know where the problems are and
we wouldn't have this coming up
at the end of the year," she said.
"My theory is to shut the jail
down and then they (Board of
County Commissioners) can do
what the need to do," Young said,
adding, "they gave me $300,000
and I'm already over budget. This
year, I refuse to do it."
Young said he is understaffed
because he can't pay officers a
decent wage. "A lot of employees
left here because of the money. A
class of officers just graduated
Thursday from Pat Thomas (Law
Enforcement Academy) and I
couldn't hire one of them because I
can't pay them. We have the
training academy right here in our
back yard and I can't hire officers
when they graduate," Young said.
He said he was told by the young
officers that they can't work for the
county for such low wages.


The day-to-day ratio to
corrections officers to inmates is
typically three to four officers to
250 inmates.
"For adequate security and
safety, it should be six to seven
officers to 250 inmates. The low
ratio of correctional officers is
mainly due to significant turnover
of jail staff as a result of non-
competitive salaries," Young wrote
to the Department of Justice.
The jail, according to Young,
does not have fully functioning
video monitoring systems in all
cells which also compromises the
staffs ability to supervise activities
of all inmates in the facility. But
Hafner said, while videos are good
as augmentation for officers,
nothing replaces an adequate
number of trained personnel.
"When an officer sees a problem
on the video, he or she has to
respond," Hafner said.
He suggested several bandaid
approaches which would stall the


inevitable, adding on the the jail.
First, he suggested moving the
female population to the
multipurpose area of the jail. Then,
the juvenile population could be
moved to the old dispatch area
because the law requires that
juvenile offenders must be
separated by sight. At a minimum
the renovations would cost about
$48,000.
Currently, female inmates are
housed in the same area as the
male inmates. Juveniles are held in
one of two 2 x 6 holding cells with
special needs inmates.
"Sometimes juveniles are
required to remain in the holding
cell for six months more more,"
Young said.
In the letter Young also advised
the Department of Justice that hot
water at the facility is not
consistent and that inmates have to
take cold showers which does not
fully sanitize their bodies. He said
he understands that the water is


heated with swimming pool
heaters.
"The heaters are clearly
inadequate to consistently maintain
hot water for the jail facility. These
problems have been long standing
issues that preceded my tenure as
Gadsden County Sheriff and have
continued on since my tenure
(approximately 2 years)," Young
wrote.
Young said jail problems could
be solved if the Board of County
Commissioners gave the one cent
tax that was for the jail back to to
the jail. "They are using it for EMS
and public works. I'm crying out to
the Department of Justice. I'm
doing this before someone gets
hurt of killed," he said.
And Young says he isn't crying
wolf. He said thousands of people
are walking around in the
community who have open
warrants and many of them should
be in jail.
There was one bright spot.


Sheriff Morris Young enlisted
the help of Ned Hafner,
Director of Corrections and
Jail Services for the Florida
Sheriff's Association, to identify
problems at the jail.

Hafner had praise for the
management of the jail despite the
obstacles of space, overcrowedness
and low wages. "The facility is
well designed on paper, they need
more space," hafner said.

normal glitches you have on the
first day of school."
One of the day's glitches was at
the county's newest school the
just-completed West Gadsden
High School in Greensboro.
"There was nothing severe an
air-conditioning problem at West
Gadsden High School, but we got
that resolved real quick," he said.
"A fuse or something went out
after a storm during the
weekend."
James noticed enrollment is
particularly: high at George W.


Munroe Elementary, a school for
which he and the School Board
have discussed capping
enrollment.
"That's a positive thing, to have
so many enrolled. And we
certainly have a dynamic leader
at that school Ida Walker. But
we may have to cap enrollment -
there, are just so many people,
maybe because of the new
apartments near there," he said,
in reference to Arbor Crest
Apartments.
James said he feels good about


the energy and enthusiasm he
saw on the part of students,
parents and teachers alike
Monday.
"Everybody seems to be
extremely excited. The parents
are so excited, so happy to see
school start," he said.
"In terms of instructional
positions, we have filled most of
those and have hired several
teachers from the Philippines. It's
just great a new year. We really
believe this is going to be our
best year ever," he said.


"There's just an energy out
there that tells me as a leader this
is going to be the best school
year ever."
New this year is the expansion


of the school district's Florida
Comprehensive Assessment Test
prep program, inaugurated at
Stewart Street Elementary, -to
James A. Shanks Middle School.


James and the School Board
also plan to focus more energy
on bringing Chattahoochee
Elementary School up to par
structurally and academically.

Also injured in the crash were
Alfonso Rodriguez Sanchez, 9,

Blazing temps creating Chrch news


risks for Floridians


Local health

department

offers tips on

staying cool

By LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor

If you live in Florida, August's
stifling heat comes as no surprise.
Still, there's room to remind
even native Floridians to take
certain precautions during a heat
wave, Gadsden County Health
Department Public Information
Officer Max Martinez said.
"People in Florida are aware of
the heat situation, especially in
August," he said.
Knowing how to prepare for one
and how to treat heat-related
illnesses is valuable information,
Martinez said. People most
susceptible are the elderly and
young children.
A press release distributed
jointly by the American Red
Cross, the National Weather
Service and the Federal
Emergency Management Agency.
offers these tips:
If a heat wave is predicted or
happening, slow down.
Avoid strenuous activity. If you
must do strenuous activity, do it
during the coolest part of the day,
normally between 4-7 a.m,
Stay inside as much as
possible. If air conditioning is not
available, stay on the lowest floor,
out of the sunshine. Try to go to a
public building with air
conditioning each day for several
hours.
Wear lightweight, light-colored
clothing. Light colors will reflect
away some of the sun's energy.
Drink plenty of water regularly
and often.
Drink plenty of fluids even if
you don't feel thirsty.
Water is the safest liquid to
drink during heat emergencies
such as heat exhaustion or heat
stroke. Avoid drinks with alcohol.
or caffeine.
Eat small meals and eat more
often. Avoid foods that are high in
protein, which increase metabolic
heat.
Avoid using salt tablets unless
directed to do so by a physician.
Worth watching for are the
symptoms of heat cramps, heat
exhaustion and heat stroke.
Heat cramps are muscular pains
and spasms caused by heavy
exertion. Although heat cramps
are the least severe of the three
illnesses, they are an'early signal
that the body is having trouble
with the heat.
Cool, moist, pale or flushed skin
indicates the onset of heat
exhaustion, as do heavy sweating,
headache, nausea or vomiting,
dizziness and exhaustion.'
Hot, red skin and changes in
consciousness signify heat stroke;
other signs to look for include a
rapid, weak pulse and rapid,
shallow breathing. During heat
stroke, the body temperature can
rise to as high as 105 degrees
Fahrenheit.
Recommended treatment for
heat illnesses are as follows:
To treat heat cramps, get the
person to a cooler place and have
him or her rest in a comfortable
position. Lightly stretch. the
affected muscle and replenish
fluids. Give half a glass of cool
water every 15 minutes. Do not
give liquids with alcohol or
caffeine in them, as they can
make the condition worse.
To help a person suffering
from heat exhaustion, get the

The company expects to have
Enough electricity to meet

."Hot, dry weather increases the
demand for energy. and we are
working to ensure a reliable
power supply," said Jeff Lyash,
president and CEO of Progress
Energy Florida. "Our system is
operating as designed, and we
don't anucipate any: issues
meeting demand, but "e always\
encourage our customers to be as
energy-efficient as possible. We
recommend our customers take
some simple, easy steps to reduce
energy use, %which also can help
save money on their bills."
The company generates power
at 14 sites in Florida, using a
diversified fuel mi\ of nuclear,
coal, natural gas and oil. Progress
Energy will complete uts fouth

Among those ups are the
following:

For central air conditioning
systems, keep the fan switch on
.our thermostat in the "auto"
position when cooling. This gives
)ou better cooling and humidity
control. Having the fan switch
"on" continuously could costs an
extra $25 a month on your electric
bill.
Set the air conditioning system
thermostat a little higher. Most
people can be comfortable with a
setting of 78 to 80 degrees
Fahrenheit, plus you'll sade
between 7 percent and 10 percent
on electric bills.
Use a ceding fan or portable
fan to supplement yotu air
conditioning. A fan can make you
feel three to four degrees cooler
(and only costs a half-cent pel

person out of the heat and into a
cooler place. Remove or loosen
tight clothing and apply cool, wet
cloths, such as towels or sheets. If
the person is conscious, give cool
water to drink. Make sure the
person drinks slowly.
Give a half glass of cool water
every 15 minutes. Do not give
liquids that contain alcohol or
caffeine. Let the victim rest in a
comfortable position and watch
carefully for changes in his or her
condition.
Heat stroke is a life-
threatening situation. Call 911
immediately. Move the person to
a cooler place and quickly cool
the body by immersing the victim
in a cool bath or wrapping wet
sheets around the body and
fanning it. Watch for signs of
breathing problems. Keep the
person lying down and continue
to cool the body any way you can.
if the victim refuses water or is
vomiting or there are changes in
the level of consciousness, don't
give the person anything to eat or
drink.

As long as we think, we can be better than we are.


By Alice DuPont, Editor

If you don't ask, don't expect


This is budget time. At this time of year,
the county and the cities go through their
budgets and decide what they will fund or
will not fund for the coming year. This is
the time of year that they decide what
programs and service to increase or
decrease funding.
In short, if you have something you want
your representative to know, now is the
time to tell them. Whatever it is that's
important to you should be brought to
their attention now. It's often too late
when the budget has been voted on and.
approved..
All too often citizens come to meetings
in the middle of the fiscal year asking for
money for this or money for that. They're
upset when they are informed that what
they want "is not in'the budget.".
While it is true that elected officials
work for the public, they cannot read
minds. If you want more money put into
services and less into other things such as
creating new positions or raising salaries,
then attend the budget meetings and say
so. That way it becomes a give and take
situation. You can have a dialogue with
elected officials and they can explain to
you just why some things are the way they
are from their perspective.


After all, they have the entire county or a
entire city to consider and once they've
explained their rationale you may (or may
not) agree with them.
But at least your voice will be heard
because one sure way not to get anything
accomplished is to sit around and
complain to people who can't do anything
about your concerns.
I suppose most people have heard the
phrase "you have not because you ask not"
and it is true. Many times people don't get
what they want or need.simply because
they have not made the request of the
proper people.
A friend of mine came into the the office
a few days ago and we got into a dialogue
about some issues he has in the City of
Quincy. After talking about an hour, I
finally asked him what he wanted. How, I
asked him, could the city make him a
happy citizen?
His need was essentially a simple one
and could be solved with the order of a
few signs to slow traffic in his
neighborhood. But he had not requested
his need or expressed his specific concern
to anyone who could have told the right
people.
Sometimes all you need to do is ask.

Skippy did it "his way"


Folks, I don't know if I'm stupid, or proud
this morning.
And I certainly don't want to belaborthe
disgusting thought of breeding, raising and
training dogs to fight each other .But the
recent indictment against Michael Vick and
his co-conspirators surrounding this whole
"dogfight-gambling" issue has sure got me
to thinking.
We used to have a pretty bad dog. He
could whip any four legged creature that
walked into our yard. I've seen him take on
raccoons, foxes, possums, pigs, other dogs
and one old Billy goat with equal disdain.
And, with the exception of an extra riled up
Yorkshire hog, the dog dispatched them
with relative ease.
We were sitting on a gold mine! It just
never crossed my mind to fight the dog for
money! Not one time! Can you believe
that? I could be retired and living in the
Cayman Islands!
'Course, I would have had to change his
name. Our super, charged up, take-on-all-
comers, bad dog answered to Skippy. Not
exactly a name that conjured up Attila the
Hun or Godzilla like imagines. Leon, as the
oldest brother, was in charge of all
monikers. He didn't waste much time, or
thought, on it. If Fred Johnsonius dropped
off a dog, we called him, or her, Freddie. If
a dog wandered up late at night and was
dark haired, it became Midnight. If a dog
swaggered out to the barn like John
Wayne, he became Duke for life.
Skippy showed up out of no where one
hot summer day with a bum leg. He
hopped in on his three good feet and a
name was born. Daddy poured burnt oil
and sulfur on the bad leg and we went back
to the cotton field. The getting well part
was left mostly up to the dog. Duke and
Midnight gave him a wide berth right from
the start. That should have been our first
tip-off. The battle scars and knots on his
young head should have also told us
something.
Bruno, Bouser or West Texas Tornado
would have been more fitting. But again,
silly us, we just didn't think about the fight
potential.
If you are wondering what kind of dog
Skippy was....well, he was an outside dog.
We only had three breeds back then. You
had your Lassie dogs, inside dogs and
backyard hounds. This was way before
they tied ropes around dogs' necks and
pulled them back and forth on t. v.
Daddy thought it was cruel to tie a dog
up. He wouldn't do it. I've seen him
heading off to town going sixty miles an
hour in that old pick up. The dogs had the
option of jumping out any time they
wanted to. Dad left it strictly up to the
canine.
And listen, we didn't encourage Skippy


one bit. He just came by the fighting
naturally. He wasn't a grouchy dog. And
he wasn't the biggest dog. But if you
crossed his path, stood in his sun, got too
close while he was eating or looked like
you might be a threat he'd jump on you.
Mother would throw cold water on the
dogs to separate'em when they'd tie up
over a ham bone. Daddy whipped Skippy a
couple of times about his bad behavior.
Leon would get all over him just for
barking. Can you imagine? There was a -
concerted effort to get this wonderfully bad
dog to behave! We were just throwing
money away!
Skip didn't let our "friendly" efforts deter
him one bit. He just liked to fight.
Spike Mercer brought his two prized
coon dogs over to go hunting and one of
them jumped in front of Skippy' and face
barked him. Well, there wasn't much Skip
could do with all the men standing so
close. But he did hop in the wagon when
the coon hunting trip commenced. It didn't
take long for one of Spike's dogs to cut a
trail. We throwed every dog that come
along into the hunt. About the time they
ought to have treed the gosh-awfullest
racket I had ever heard come up. It
sounded like World War III had broken out
in Jarrell Switch Bottom! When we got
down there to'em Duke and Freddie were
milling about and yapping, both of Spike's
dogs were cut and bleeding.pretty badly,
Skippy was leaning against a tree without a.
mark on him and the coon was long gone.
Mr. Mercer gently picked up his prized
dogs and muttered to my Father, "Lonnie,
that sure must have been one bad raccoon!"
If Dad thought anything different, he
never let on.
Buster Kincaid had this big brown dog
that would bear his teeth and growl at us
every time we passed Buster's house on the
way to town. It got to where I'd go over by
the college and cut across on Cherry Street
just to keep away from that dog. One day
Skippy followed us when Buster's dog ran
out and growled. Before we could move a
muscle Skippy had Browny by the throat
and was dragging him behind Becky
Broome's grandmother's house. Leon had
to run around there and pull Skippy off.
The next time I went to town that dog
never moved off'of Buster's front porch
and he near 'bout broke his front paw
waving it so friendly like as we passed by.
Skippy came home one evening half beat
to death. He was cut and bleeding
something awful. Dad doused him down
with burn oil and sulfur. The dog was
grinning the whole time. We found some
hair in his teeth that Leon allowed was
grizzly bear for sure! We back tracked and

Getting to the heart of bullying


It seems that school bullies have been
around almost as long as schools
themselves. Who among us is not
familiar with the child (or group of
children) who terrorizes other students
with taunts, teasing and, all too often,
physical violence?
To suggest, however, that the national
problem of bullying is nothing more
than "kids being kids" or a child's rite of
passage ignores statistics that the
phenomena of bullying is increasing in
our schools and occurring in earlier
grades.
According to Bill Foster, President of
School Perceptions LLC a firm that
specializes in gathering the opinions of
students, staff and parents bullying is
widespread, with over 47 percent of
recently surveyed middle and high
school students agreeing that bullying is
a problem at their school. Foster adds
that if anyone thinks bullying is a
problem 'reserved for older kids, it's not:
42 percent of elementary students
reported bullying as a problem. A recent
study funded by the U.S. National
Institutes of Health that found
elementary school bullying to be
widespread further demonstrates the
problem.
Across all age categories, many
students expressed a fear of going to and
being in school. In actuality, more than
43 percent of survey respondents
reported fearing harassment in the,
school bathroom and nearly 10 percent
of urban high school juniors and seniors
reported that they have missed at least
one day of school each month out of fear
of physical abuse.
The results of bullying are dire.
Fearing reprisal, most bullied students
don't notify, teachers or parents and, as a
result, become silent victims. When
facing an ongoing abusive situation,
some students turn to suicide. In other
cases, students seek alternative means to
ensure their own safety: According to a

National School Boards Association
report, more than 135,000 guns are
brought to school each day by students,
and the most common reason students
give for bringing weapons to schools is
for personal protection. In the most
extreme of cases, school shootings are
scenes where the bullied have become
the bully.
To be sure, bullying and harassment at
school is not a rite of passage; it is a
public health crisis. But just as
harassment and bullying is sheer terror
for children, it is also frustrating for
parents and educators. How can parents
and educators ensure the safety and well
being of their children when most abuse
goes unreported? What strategies should
be put in place to ensure student safety?
How safe do students feel in their
schools? The best answers to these .
questions come from a source closest to
the problem: the students themselves.
The first step that should be taken by
schools, districts and their communities
to stop bullying and harassment is get an
honest assessment from students in
addition to parents and school staff-
about whether they feel problems exist,
and if they do, then when, where and
how often.
A well-crafted and anonymous survey
that provides immediate results allows
students even those who are bullied -
to respond freely, allowing educators
and parents to target problems, identify.
solutions and come to a common
consensus.
In most cases, it is the students
themselves who offer the best solutions
to bullying; the key is to identify ways to
listen to them.

No

Community

mental health

programs are

essential services

by Maggie Labarta, Ph.D.
The news is bad, but not
unexpected. The $71 billion
budget state passed in May no
longer appears realistic; and
Florida lawmakers are now faced
with the daunting task of cutting
around $1 billion from the
expense side of the budget to
match the feared and now
almost certain revenue
shortfall.
A special session will begin
Sept. 18 and could run up
through Oct. 5, and according to
Senate President Ken Pruitt, their
task will be "difficult, but
achievable." Since most of the.
budget is allocated to education
and social services, programs in
those areas havebeen told to
expect potential cuts between 4
and 10 percent.
But which programs to cut? No
one wants to decrease the number
of police officers, firefighters or
teachers who are so essential to
our safety and well-being. But
how does an area such as mental
health services fit into .the
picture? Should a budget item

Editor:

At the recent town meeting in Havana there was much concern regarding the increase in the
administrative cost in the County Commissioners' budget. The answers we received were not very
satisfying, mainly because we did not receive answers to most of our questions. Part of this increase
in administrative costs is the county manager's $118,000 salary, and percs, including a $7,200 a year
auto allowance, in addition, the county pays for the vehicle maintenance and fuel (per Section 4 of
his Employment Agreement), 100% of his family health insurance (since he agreed to a reduced
base salary, the county agreed to. pay his family coverage, not just his). The county manager is
entitled to 25 days a year annual leave, 3 days personal leave, and 12 days a year sick leave. The
county manager also is allowed a $25,000 fund to spend at his discretion. Extremely generous for
an employee of only two years! Now, the point of this letter is that the county manager has been
recently appointed to a statewide Blue Print Commission which is going to try to improve the
juvenile justice system in Florida. Although this is an honor for the county manager and will look
good on his resume', I can not see how it directly relates to Gadsden County. It is my understanding
that the county manager wants the time he spends on this commission to be considered county
time, not personal leave.
My personal opinion is that attending the Blue Print Commission meeting does not meet the
requirements of Section 7 of his employment contract, which states that the county will pay for state
and local conferences and training programs necessary for continued professional development and
growth as the same shall be related to and benefit Gadsden County. What is the benefit to the
county and at what cost? Whether or not the county agrees to his time off for the Blue Print
Commission meetings should be brought before and voted on by the entire County Commission
Board.
Sincerely,
JimmyAshmore

Editor,
"Right on with Safety" was our motto when I was the faculty member in charge of the school
safety patrol. I still have pictures of my little helpers in their orange helmets and belts. Inspired by
one of Alice DuPont's "Contemplations" articles written in December 2002 and a first time visit to
East Gadsden High School on August 19, 2007 for their open house, I am appealing to all safety-
conscience citizens of Quincy and Gadsden County to join me in support of a "safety revival".
Before entering the gate to East Gadsden High, signs like "School Safety Hodine" and Buckle Up"
were prominently displayed. But the ultimate shocking "wake-up call" warning was the sobering
experience of standing in front of the grave-like memorial to the three students whose lives were cut
short by careless drivers. As I read the names of the three girls, I wondered if it would be the same as
reading the name of a loved one on the Vietnam Memorial Wall. The rest of my visit at East
Gadsden was very pleasant and uplifting talking to faculty members and extending best wishes for a
very successful 2007-2008 school year to the new principal, Rosalyn West. My plea to the readers of
this article is to make safety #1. Can we adopt the motto of my safety patrol and say "Right on with
Safety?"

the Comprehensive Plan that
would nullify reason, public rights
and state law and interpose a local
policy position against the legal
rights and authority of the State of
Florida to promote public health,
welfare, and safety, and safety of the
people of the state and the county by
permitting a development based on
the use of septic tanks in this
particular at-risk area because
permitting the use of septic tanks is
not promoting the public health,
safety, f~d welfare.
"Two: -reason dictates that the
Board can not permit the Plantations
of Fpxchase applicant to move
forward with the proposed
development unless it requires the
developer to hookup to a sewage
system regardless of the fact that the


closest, the City of Gretna, is more
than a quarter of a mile from a
possible sewer line because the use
of septic tanks is an at-risk factor,"
he said. Gretna's City Manager
Antonio Jefferson told
commissioners that he had met with
developers and that they had
concluded that the nearest hookup to
the development is almost a half-
mile away. To hook up would cost
Gretna about $300,000 and the
developer could pay as much as
$2.3 million dollars, Jefferson said.
Another concern voiced by
Colrunissioner Doug Croley was the
welfare of the animals indigenous to
the area and a concern about
wetlands and standing water as well
as the septic tank issue.
Anthony Gaudio, a master septic


tank installer, said he had tested 25
percent (about 40 lots) of. the
property and found that the earth
was dense and should be able to
handle the number of septic tanks.
"We have a valid concern about
what will happen with the surface
water," Croley, said, adding that he
talked with marine life experts last
week and they expressed concerns
about shellfish and mollusks in the
area.
In other matters:
Three Midway homeowners
asked commissioner for help with a
neighbor who persisted in fixing
motorcycles in their residential
neighborhood. The homeowner,
they say, is also a noise nuisance
because he is constantly working on
motorcycles and raising the motor at


all times of the day and night. They
say the man lives in an.RV and uses
loud generators for power.
Commissioner Eugene Lamb said
he had talked to the homeowner and
asked him to consider the feelings of
his neighbors and he said he would.
The homeowners, however, said
that the promise lasted about seven
weeks. Lamb said he would visit the
homeowner again and make another
appeal.
The Commissioners voted to
increase the communications tax.
The increase would mean about 60
to 70 cents to people with
telephones, cable television and in
some cases Direct TV.
Commissioner will hold a budget
workshop Wednesday, Aug.' 29 at 6
p.m. in the commission chambers.


Sheriff gets needed funds from county


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

Sheriff Morris Young request-
ed, and got, $344,500 to finish out
the fiscal year from the Board of
County Commissioners Tuesday
night during the regular meeting.
Jane Munroe, a financial consult-
ant with the Sheriffs Office, said
the money was needed mostly to
pay for inmate medical care,
meals, and to pay for expenses
incurred as employees leave the
department.
Currently, the jail is over its
budget in inmate medical care by
$110,000 and inmate meals are
over budget by $35,000. All of this


is due to the large jail population
that is taxing the entire system.
Other costs include $50,000 in
attorneys' fees to litigate against a
vendor who did not fulfill a con-
tract. The Gadsden County
Sheriff's Office is hoping that the
litigation will mean a return of the
money already paid as well as
attorneys' fees. Another $26,000
has been paid in overtime because
of a shortage of officers, $68,000
has gone to employee payouts
once they have left the department
and $58,000 to satisfy a grant that
was not funded this year.
While commissioners agreed
they had to come up with the
money, Chairman Brenda Holt


said the department will have
problems that 'commissioners
Won't be aware of until it reaches
a critical point again unless the
jail's budget is prepared and under
the auspices of the Board.
"It's like having a baby and let-
ting someone else raise it. They
are doing a great job of managing,
the jail," she said. Holt said that in
the past the Board has given the
Sheriff whatever was requested
without asking any questions.
"You have to become more
responsible for the budget. I don't
know why he (Young) would want
to do it (his budget) anyway," she
said. Holt said she talked with
Young as late as 5 p.m. Tuesday


and he was amenable to the idea of
the Board preparing and monitor-
ing the jail's inmate medical budg-
et, which runs around $274,000.
Commissioner Eugene Lamb
disagreed with Holt, saying that he
didn't think the Board was
equipped to handle the jail budget.
"These people are professionals at
what they do. We don't know any-
thing about running ajail," he said.
"From my standpoint this
request is very reasonable," said
Commissioner Doug Croley.
In voting the give the addition-
al funds, Commissioner Ed Dixon
said it is the Sheriffs job to run the
jail and it is the responsibility of
the Board to fund it.

City budget meeting focuses on proposed salaries


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

Salaries and responsibilities
dominated part of the first City
of Quincy's budget workshop
last Wednesday night. Looking
for ways to cut and save the cit-
izens money, Mayor Keith
Dowdell told City Manager Bill
Bogan that trying to make
Quincy Tallahassee was like
comparing apples and oranges.
But before the night was
over commissioner Sherrie
Taylor said her level of frustra-
tion had peaked. She was refer-
ring to salaries and questioned
the city manager's decision to
hire an administrative assistant


at a higher rate than a veteran
city employee in the same
office.
Taylor said Bogan's decision
to pay a new hire, whose
responsibilities she questioned,
$7,000 more than the woman
who has run the office for
years.
"We pass by (the city Hall)
at 3 to 4 a.m. and your aide is
still here. What's going on?
This person ran this office sin-
gle-handedly for years; this is
an insult to her. You disrepsect
people and the one's you've
brought in here from God
knows where..." Taylor said.:

ly paid to department heads and

CRA debates purchasing property, but balks at asking prices


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

Property owners want the city
to pay much more than the mar-
ket value of their properties if
they sell.
During the July meeting of the
Community Redevelopment
Agency, the board, which is
made up of members of the City


Commission, discussed buying
properties in the CRA District.
Three properties were discussed
and whether the CRA would be
authorized to make the purchas-
es.
'The first property, at 309 10th
Street, has a market value od
$16,000; however the owner is
asking for $26,000. The struc-
ture, said CRA Director Charles


Hayes, is in fair condition and
could possible be rehabilitated.
He said if the property is pur-
chased the city should subtract
all fees associated with getting a
clear title, demolition, and other
costs associated with the pur-
chase of the property.
The second property, at 621
Williams Street, is valued at
$10,572 and the owner wants the


city to pay $17,000. The property
appraiser says the assessed value
Sof property is 85% of he actual
value of the land and home.
Hayes said the property needs
to be demolished. The appraiser
informed Hayes that the actual
value for a lot of that size and in
that area of the city is actually
worth between $4,000 and
$8,000.


"If we get the property, the
home will need to be demolished
leaving only the real estate for re-
sale," Hayps said.
The Board decided to offer
the owners between $4,500 and
$7,000.
The third property, located at
511 West Clark Street, the owner
did not make an offer but indicat-
ed that he only wanted "to get


rid" of the property. The proper-
ty, like other, needs to be demol-
ished. It has been appraised at
$4,631. The city will. offer
between $3,500 and $5,000 for
the property.
The Board decided that prop-
erty owners should assume the
responsibility of other cots asso-
ciated with selling the property to
the CRA.


Lodge holds anniversary celebration


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

The Micahel R. Moore Lodge
#764 held its second anniversary
celebration Saturday night at their
lodge on East Washington Street.
Tallahassee attorney Darryl Parks,
a member of the lodge, was the
featured speaker.
Parks touched on several topics
including the fact that individuals
must learn to be self-sufficient.
"Man must learn to build for him-
self. The Bible, in the Book of
Isiah, teaches of this but we must
make the first effort," he
said.Parks told the audience of
nearly 100 people, that it is impor-
tant to help their fellow man, espe-
cially the less fortunate.
Worshipful Master Charles Hayes
said the organization has complet-
ed several community service
projects during the past two years


of existence.
"We delivered gifts to the
Riverchase on both Mother's Day'
and Father's Day, we served
catered meals to families on
Thanksgiving and Christmas, we
donated 20 new bicycles to chil-
dren last Christmas, and spon-
sored our annual Egg Easter Hunt
for 200 children last spring,"
Hayes said. In addition, the Lodge
members participated in a blood
drive and recently took a truck
load of furniture to New Orleans
to victims of Hurricane Katrina.
Several members serve as
mentors for local high school stu-
dents and, adccrding to Hayes, the
organization is ready to partner
with 'other community service
organizations to make the commu-
nity a better place..
Parks, who is also a member of
he Board of Trustees for Florida
A&M University gave a brief


update on the state of the universi-
ty from his prospective.
"The university is going to be
fine. The immediate challenge is
to get the accreditation probation
behind us and that should be done
by early September. There are a lot
of alumni in Gadsden County and
the alumni and friends should
show their support. This is very
important," he said. "We have to
push people to become members
of the alumni association."
On the political side, Parks told
the group that there are four judi-
cial seats opening up in the dis-
trict."This is very important to'the
and people need to get involved
early in the election process," he
said. Special guest for the evening
was the Rev. Dr. Michael R.
Moore 33-degree, Grand Master
M.W.U.G.L. The theme for the
evening was "Raising The
Bar...The Best Is Yet To Come."

Quincy native wins Telly Awards for lighting, set design


Special to the Times

Sarah Stuart Auman, the
daughter of Mary Stuart and
Jimmy Auman of Quincy recently
Win two bronze Telly Awards, one
for lighting and the other for set
design for the ETC 3 TV cooking
show. She is the owner of Out of
the Blue, a gourmet living shop
on downtown Blue Ridge, GA.
It was the "figs" episode of
"Hans Cooks the World" that won
Auman the awards. The show
also won a third Telly for cine-
matography. The Telly Award is


the premier award honoring out-
standing local, regional, and cable
TV programs and commericals,
as well as the finest video and film
productions.
Auman knew when she came
up with the idea of the store she
wanted to have a working kitchen.
"I wanted to have a heart to my
store, and to me, the heart of any
home is the kitchen," Auman said.
Having a kitchen in her store
allowed her to offer cooking
classes.
So, when the owner of ETC 3
TV asked if Auman would like to


film the cooking show in her
shop, she jumped at the opportu-
nity. Hans Rueffert went on to
film 18 episodes of "Hans Cooks
the World" in the tiny, 150-
square-foot cooking space in Out
of the Blue.
Every Monday for 18 months
from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m. cameras
rolled in the shop. Filming a
cooking show in a small space
required constantly washing dish-
es and mopping floors. "Great
cooks make huge messes,"
Auman said.
This is the 28th year of the


prestigious Telly Awards. There
were over 13,0Q0 entries from all
50 states and five continents for
the 2007 awards.
"The Telly Awards are made
by the same folks who do the
Academy Awards," Auman said.
Auman's mother said they are
extremely proud of their daugh-
ter's accomplishments and are are
anxious for the people of Quincy
to know what a local woman has
accomplished.
"She grew up in Quincy and
many folks still know her," said
Mary Stuart Auman.

School superintendent set to meet with parents


By LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor

Gadsden County Schools
Superintendent Reginald James
has given his "State of the
District" message to teachers and
to the school system's faith-based
partners.
Now, it's the parents' turn.
James will meet with parent
representatives from each school
Aug. 23 at 6:30 p.m. to share his
goals and hopes for the new
school year and to hear theirs.
"He will lay out his vision and
his plans and goals for the 2007-


2008 school year," said Audrey
Lewis-Potter, director of parent
involvement services for the
school district. "He also wants to
listen to their concerns, to talk
with them instead of at them."
The meeting will take place at
the district administration build-
ing on Martin Luther King Jr.
Boulevard. Lewis-Potter said she
expects parents who serve as
school advisory council chairper-
sons, English speaking other lan-
guage parents, pre-kindergarten
parent representatives, exception-
al student education parent repre-
sentatives and Parent-Teacher


Association members to attend,
close to 100 of them in all.
"We very strong in Gadsden
County with PTA," she noted.
One reason James has taken
pains to address several sectors of
the community is to make his
plans for education identifiable to
each in order to achieve a cohe-
sive effort to improve the local
school system.
"He wants to make it all-inclu-
sive so everybody will be on the
same page," Lewis-Potter said.
"In this way he can empower
them to go back to their commu-
nities where they talk to other


people at church, at the grocery
store, in schools and explain
what's happening and how to
make things better."
One of James' top goals for the
new school year, according to
Lewis-Potter, is raising gain
scores for level one and level two
students, whose grades are in the
lowest quartile.
Another goal is to put a focus
on science, a subject that recently
joined literacy and math skills as
a component of the Florida
Comprehensive Assessment Test.
"Once he analyzed all the data
and looked at the area of science,


he said, "OK, even though we still
need to work on reading and writ-
ing and math, we need to focus on
science,'" Lewis-Potter said.
A third area of concentration
this year is Chattahoochee
Elementary School. The school
received a failing grade on the
FCAT last year and needs some
renovations as well.
"(James) and (School Board
Chairman) Isaac Simmons met
with people in the Chattahoochee
community last week," Lewis-
Potter said. "It's going to take the
school district and the community
to keep that school alive."

Gadsden County Emergency
Medical Services took Jackson's
wife, 62-year-old Ruth Lee
Johnson, to Tallahassee Memorial
Hospital to be examined. She has
asthma, and the smoke caused her
some difficulty.
The six of the couple's
grandchildren that live with them
were all in school at the time of
the fire.
Every bit of the family's
belongings ',- clothes, shoes,
furniture burned in the fire.
Quincy Public Works
Department employee Sheila
Jackson stopped at the scene with
a coworker to help direct traffic
around two Quincy Fire
Department trucks and the large
Talquin Septic truck Willie
Jackson drove home.
"They're just good, good
people," she said of the family.
"They need help."
The couple's grandchildren
range in age from 6-16.
The youngest boy wears size 7
clothes. The next-oldest boy, a 7-
year-old, wears large-sized
clothes.
Jackson wasn't sure of the shoe


sizes or the exact clothing sizes
of his grandchildren; his wife,
who was in the hospital Tuesday,
normally does the shopping for
them. Jackson wears size 34-32
pants.
SHis 12-year-old and 14-year-old
grandsons each wear size 30-30
pants; a 15-year-old grandson
wears size 32-30 pants.
The oldest grandchild living in
the horie, a 16-year-old girl,
wears clothes ranging in size
from 6-8.
Jackson's wife wears plus-sized
clothes designed to fit a woman
petite in stature.
Donations for the family can be
dropped off at Friendship
Primitive Baptist Church on Ben
Bostick Road, Mr. Jackson said.
His home was insured, and he
plans to put another on the same
site.
He felt certain Tuesday his
family would be able to find a
place to stay until they can
replace their home.
"I have four sons and three
daughters. I have sisters," he said.
"The Lord's going to see about
me."

Notre Dame to play either FSU or
Miami in the Championship game
last year. As usual. I wasn't close.
But another year may bring different
results so here goes my thoughts for
this college football year.
Can the Gators repeat as national
champions? I honestly feel like there
is no way. Too tough a schedule. I do
think they'll reign as SEC champs
again. They'll win the SEC East
despite two losses and meet West
winner LSU for the SEC champi-
onship wheie they'll avenge a regular
season loss.
Thus the SEC will be knocked out
of the national championship game.
The team that won't be knocked
out is USC.
The Trojans should run the table
this \ear avoiding a late season slip-
up against UCLA like they did last
year. They will be eas\ winners of
the Pac 10, a not real strong confer-
ence. Their National Championship
game opponent will be Texas who
will lose a regular season game but
win the Big Twelve Conference beat-


ing a surprising Missouri team in the
Big Twelve title game. Neither team
could beat Florida or LSU but USC
will beat Texas to win the champi-
onship.
The SEC was the best conference
last year and will be the best this year.
In the SEC East following Florida
will be South Carolina, Tennessee.
Vanderbilt, Georgia and Kentucky in
that order.
After LSU in the West it will be
Auburn, Arkansas, Alabama.
Mississippi, and Mississippi State in
that order.
No ACC team will challenge for
the national crown because like the
SEC it's getting almost impossible for
a team to go undefeated.
The Atlantic division of the ACC
will have a finish of Boston College.
Clemson. Florida State, Wake Forest,
Maryland and N.C. State in that
order. The Coastal Division winner
will be Virginia Tech with Georgia
Tech, Virginia, North Carolina.
Miann, and Duke to follow in that
order. Virginia Tech will win the


ACC Championship game in
Jacksonuille on December's first
Saturday clamping down Boston
College.
Other conference champions will
be Louisville in the Big East edging
West Virginia, Michigan in the Big
Ten besting out Wisconsin, Southern
Miss in Conference USA, TCU in the
Mountain West and Boise State in the
WAC.
Notre Dame tops the few
Independents and will finish 8-4 in
the regular season.
FSU had a sub par year last year
going 6-6 m the regular season. Look
for an 8-4 regular season record this
campaign. Miami will go 7-5 and
Florida 10-2 in the regular campaign.
FAMU will improve to 8-4 or 9-3
this year but they are still a ways from
winning the MEAC, something 1
think will happen in 2008.
As, for 2007 this is what I think
will happen. As usual it probably
won't. What will happen is the season
will be enjoyable and unpredictable
as always.


County football pre-season games set for Friday


The three Gadsden County
high school football teams have

The Munroe volleyball team
is set to attempt to win a fourth
straight district championship in
Class A with a slightly different
roster and a very different dis-
trict. Munroe and arch, rival
John Paul II Catholic have been
moved to District 1, a district
that also includes four Pensacola
area schools, East Hill Christian,
Rocky Bayou Christian, Milton
Central High School and Laurel
Hill. The Lady Cats also have a
new coach in Elliot Blake.
Blake most recently coached for
three years at Broward
Community College in Miami.
He also coached boys and girls
volleyball at Nova High School.
The Lady Cats will have the


formidable task of replacing
long time starters Julia Bates
and Mallary Taylor. However,
the girls return several statistical
leading starters.
Crystal Wade returns for her
senior year as the team's leader
in service points/aces, and digs.
Beside her is three year starter
Jill Purvis, an outside hitter.
Purvis led the team in kills and
blocks in 2006 and was 2nd in
digs.
Top sub, Malorie McKinnon,,
will be called upon to step up
and give the team a quick, hus-
tler on- defense. Junior Ivie
Thomas, will move back to the
outside hitter spot after a season
as setter. She has worked hard in


the off season and will be
expected to play a fine all-
around game. Rounding out the
returnees will be sophomore
Spenser Morris, Morris started
as a freshman for the Lady Cats
and put up big stats despite
being so young. Morris will
play middle hitter. Like Thomas
and Purvis, Morris played club
volleyball last spring to up her
game.
Rounding out the starting
roster for Munroe will be fresh-
man setter, Kristin Allen. Also
vying for playing time will be
new player, Courtney White,
and last year's junior varsity
starters Amy Alien, Heather
Martin and Courtney Wilder.


The Lady Cats open up their
season on Tuesday in the brand,
new West Gadsden gymnasium.
The Panthers, are coached by
second year coach Karen
Chapman. Coach Chapman is
excited about not only her full
13 player roster, but also three
returning starters who are in
their senior year. The West
Gadsden team is in a 2A District
2 with Port St. Joe,
Wewahitchka and the always
tough, Liberty County Bulldogs,
who made a trip to the 2A Final
Four in 2005.
Game time between the two
teams in Tuesday's season open-
er in Greensboro is 5 p.m. for
the JV and 6 p.m. for the Varsity.

Senior Strut


Shanks grads set to promote


big car show in Tallahassee


Anyone who walked into the Simon Scott Center Friday night wouldn't have thought it was a
"strut" for senior citizens. The more than 50 people there were doing nore than just strutting.
While one group did very nice, synchronized version of the Electric Slide, others like two ladies
and gentleman above, struck out on their to be more expressive. Clarence and Patricia Tennell
gave an impromptu lesson on how to do the'"Green Onion" when the DJ played the song by the
same name by Jr. Walker and the Allstars. The dancers worked up quite an appetite and enjoyed
catered refreshments of assorted finger foods. Later, door prizes were given the lucky ticket hold-
ers. "It's just a way for us to have a little fun and relaxation," said Board member Willie Scott.


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

Two young Gadsden County
men, Walter Roberts and
Shannon Washington, want to
make their mark on the world
through promoting other people
and events. Their largest under-
taking will be the Sunday before
Labor Day, September 3 from 1
p.m. to 8 p.m. at the North
Florida Fairgrounds in
Tallahassee.
"It's a family oriented car
show. We'll have something for
the whole family to enjoy. There
will be no alcohol and we're pro-
moting a family environment,"
Roberts said.
They expect to draw thou-
sands because some of the cars
will be the prized possession of
several celebrities. Roberts said
that while celebrities (mostly
rappers) have consented to send
their tricked out wheels, they will
not be there. Rick Ross and Trick
Daddy are only two of those
whose vehicles will be on dis-

Locally, he said, many of
those who are proud of their
handy work with cars, trucks,
and SUV are willing to plunk
down the $50 entry fee to vie for

affect as many people really be
considered as vital as one for those
entrusted with our lives and our
future? You may find the answer to
that question rather surprising.
Mental illnesses directly affect far
more people than most would
suspect. In fact, the majority of
Floridians will, at some point in their
lifetimes meet the diagnostic criteria
for one or more mental disorders.
And about one-quarter (26 percent)
of the general population reported
symptoms sufficient for diagnosing
such a disorder during the past year.
Mental illnesses also have a
tremendous impact on us at school
and work. More than half of our
youth with an emotional.disturbance
drop out of school, and
approximately 20 percent of youth
with an emotional disturbance are
arrested before they can even finish
their education. And the problems
may even be worse at the workplace
as clinical depression has become
one of America's most costly
illnesses in terms of loss of business
productivity. Left untreated,
depression is as costly as heart
disease or AIDS to the U.S.
economy, costing more than $43.7
billion in employee absenteeism
alone. Mental illnesses are the
second leading cause of premature
death and disability.
Over time, untreated mental
illnesses have taken their toll on our
communities as well, as years of
underfunding community programs
has contributed to increased
homelessness and higher crime rates.
As a result, far too many individuals
with mentalillnesses remain in jails
across our state because there are no
available beds in our limited hospital
facilities. And too many who serve
their time and are released from
those prisons are doomed to return
because there are insufficient funds
for follow-up treatments.
With budgets tight across the
country, how does Florida compare
with other states for funding mental
health programs? Again, the news is
not good. Florida ranks 48th in the
nation in per-capita mental health
spending, 37th in Medicaid per-
capita spending for enrolled disabled
beneficiaries and 47th in Medicaid
per-capita spending for enrolled


new artists who are want to break
into show business. They will be
featured in a new magazine the
two plan to published in 90 days, "
entitled "411". And, between
admiring automobiles of all
descriptions, Roberts said food
vendors will be 'there to satisfy
the taste buds of those attending.
The $20 tickets can be pur-
chased from Platinum and the

children.
At the same time, Florida ranks
second in the number of homeless,
first in the number of substantiated
reports of child abuse and neglect,
second in the number of children in
juvenile detention facilities and third
in the number of prison inmates. A
significant portion of these problems
can be traced directly to the.lack of
mental health care. If this is what
happens when community mental
health programs are left to languish
without even moderate budget
increases, what in the world can we
expect if budgets are actually cut?
How much more can we neglect
some of our state's most vulnerable
citizens? We certainly can't afford to
find out.
Mental health services should be
treated as essential not only because
like fire and police services they
save lives, but also because of the'
Impact not funding them adequately
will have for years to come. A failure
to invest in the mental health system
leads directly to increased costs for
hospital inpatient services,
emergency-room care, shelters,
foster care, juvenile detention
facilities, jails and prisons. That is
poor investment by any standard.
We fully understand that the harsh
reality of our fiscal situation will call
for tough decisions, and good
programs will have to be cut. But
how much lower are we willing to
sink in our funding of mental health
services? We are already at the
bottom! Cutting back on funding for
the essential services that .
community mental health programs
provide would be disastrous for the
individuals who so desperately need
help and the communities in which
they live not to mention that
cutting these programs today will
cost us exponentially more in the
future.
Yes, cutting the state budget will be
tough, but justifying the decision to
cut essential community mental
health services will be even tougher.

We Buy Cars, Trucks & SUVs!


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


*Paving someone a $5000 $6000 profit
on a $10,000 automobile.
Here's what we've done at Direct
Automotive Wholesale:
*All vehicles are priced at the "Loan
Value", which is the price credit unions and
banks will loan you on this vehicle.
*We require NO DOWN PAYMENT on any
of our vehicles. We can even help with your
taxes and tag most of the time.


*At LOAN VALUE, we make a small profit
and you get a great deal!
The best Part is we have family on the
lot, NOT HIGH PRESSURE SALES PEOPLE.
If you don't see the car of your dreams in
this ad, call us. We'll get you pre-approved,
tell you what it will cost and buy it for you.
We appreciate your supporting us. Come
by or call.

Quincy Music

Theater

celebrates quarter

century with

classic play, new
programs


By LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor
The Quincy Music Theater is
kicking off its quarter-century
anniversary season with "Fiddler
On the Roof' and a host of new
ways for Gadsden County residents
to become involved in their
community theater.
The theater board is planning to
offer dance and acting classes, as
well as hold a weeklong film
festival next summer.
Managing Director Kevin
Goodson said he sees a need and an
interest in Gadsden County in
making theater and other local
cultural events more varied and
accessible.
"It's unusual for a community
theater to live this long the
normal life span is seven years," he
said. "Not only is this Quincy
Music Theater's 25th year, but this
area is not a heavily populated area.
It's unusual for an area this size to
have such a robust art scene."
The Leaf Theater was built in the
1940s and served as one of
Quincy's two movie theaters, for
decades. Single-screen theaters
gave way to multiplex theaters in
the '60s, and the Leaf closed its
doors in 1980.
A group of local community
theater enthusiasts began getting
together to perform in churches and
schools in 1983. Soon after, a group
of around 10 local residents bought
the Leaf and the theaters'
supporters garners grants and
private donations for the building's
restoration.
The theater began as a grassroots
movement and members met at the
First Presbyterian Church in 1983.
"It was part of the little theater
movement," he said. "In 1984, they,
bought the Leaf Theater for about
$50,000. When they purchased it, it
was still equipped for movies. The
roof leaked. During, their first
production, 'Lil Abner,' it rained so
much they had to bail water. They
added a new roof in 1986 at a
cost of around $50,000 and at the
time had only a small, sort of
concrete area instead of a stage.
'The Fiddler on the Roof' was the
second show they did and the first
show they did on a stage."
Around, 10 local patrons
supported the cost'of purchasing
the Leaf Theater and re-roofing it,
Goodson said, another sign that
local folks felt like a community
theater was important.
And still do.
"The turnout for 'Fiddler on the
Roof' auditions was pretty hefty -
we cast 35 people. It's very rare that
we have that luxury," he said.
"Over half of them were from
Gadsden County ... I think part of
it was, we asked Gadsden County
for a response and we got it. We put
it in the paper. Also, the show is so
wonderful and it embraces the
same things Gadsden County
embraces home, change for all
the growing pains Gadsden County
has I don't think folks here would
have it any other way."
"Fiddler on the Roof' opens Oct.
5, with show dates through Oct. 7
and again Oct. 12-14,
Other shows planned this year are
"The King and I" in late November
and early December, "Bye, Bye
Birdie" in February and "Mame" in
April.


Goodson's first foray into theater
in Gadsden County came in 2004,
when he directed "Jesus Christ
Superstar."
"I fell in love with the people over
here," he said. "I sent in my resume
but at the time they weren't able to
have a paid director Bill Mock
was working gratis. After that, I
became interim executive director
at Tallahassee Little Theater. When
that was over, I had another
conversation with the Quincy'
Music Theater board about me
coming over here. And here I am."
Goodson started in October,
2006; one of his plans includes the
creation of a classical music series
beginning in December.
"We're starting a brand new series
to address the need in Gadsden
County for a classical music site.
We are going to have an artists'
series in conjunction with the


Tallahassee artists' series."
There will be four concerts at the
Leaf this year: One performed by
renowned. Tallahassee group Tri
Conbrio, comprised of Florida State
University Faculty members, Oct.
21 at 4 p.m. The trio consists of a
clarinet player, a piano player and a
cello player.
The. Big Bend Community
Orchestra will perform "Holiday
Gift," which, will include a holiday
carol sing-along at the end, Dec. 16
at 4 p.m.
The Florida A&M University Pep
Band and Drum Corps is scheduled
to play a pops presentation Feb. 16
at 4 p.m., and Tallahassee Brass, a
new, 45-member brass choir, will
perform "Fanfare for a Mother's
Day" May 11 at 4 p.m.
Goodson wants local residents to
take advantage of the theater's new
offerings this season.
"We're starting to focus back on
Gadsden County because that's
what makes it a community theater.
Through the years there's been a
kind of transition from Gadsden
County folks getting together to put
on good shows. There's been more
of a move toward Tallahassee for
talent and for tickets 60 percent of
our tickets sold are to Tallahassee
residents," he said. "While we are
certainly happy to have Tallahassee
people continue to be involved, we
are going to offer acting and
dancing courses we're really
looking to improve the quality of
our shows by increasing the skills
of the people around us. We are still
working on a strategic plan.
Everybody who wants to take
dance winds up going to
Tallahassee. Not only will this
supplement our income, it will

address a direct need in the
community. We're going to have to
figure out how to do it and \\e're
going to have to have the space.
But I think it's kind of a neat
statement of where we are now, this
shift back to Gadsden County."
Goodson is working to bring in
the East Gadsden High School
Choir for a performance, in part to


help the group raise money for its
trip to Carnegie Hall next year.
"The theater kind of stayed the
same for a long time now we're
doing a lot of different things," he
said. "I would be happy if
everybody in Gadsden County
thought of this theater once a week.
When I interviewed with the board
of directors, I told them, 'We've got
to move. It doesn't matter which
direction we go in as long as it's not
backwards. If we move, we can
make a right turn.

verse of the weeke:
Pray without ceasing.
S1 Thessalonians 5:17 (KJV)

NO PTra er vi, SchkooL? -J 9


Now I go off to school, I pray the
Lord my soul to keep, and if I die
before I return, I pray Lord my
soul you'll take... School will
soon start This time of year used
to be a fun-filled event, all the
shopping for supplies and new
clothes, the excitement of
meeting new friends. But in the
past few years the school scene
hasn't been a pleasant one, all
the shootings, violence, and
drugs that have been popping up.
They said we couldn't pray in
school... they didn't say we
could t send them to school with
prayer! Do your children a favor
this school year, send them to
school with a covering, greater
than any other, PRAYER

that the coins themselves have been made from precious metals, such as NS Y G UC
gold and silver, or that the currency was not metallic, but there were precious T G N O GC
metals in a reserve to back up the worth of the money. In 1900, the United T G B MX 8 N F F F KG
States government passed the Gold Standard Act For every paper dollar R M Y N F S L R I R K E N
that existed, a certain amount of gold was kept in storage by the US L Z WK I Z E A A K H Y B
Government. This was called the gold standard, and it linked the money C H P K P U G L T Y L 0 K
supply to the amount of gold in the U.S. Treasury. The government would XM C L M EQ LP
trade exactly 25.8 grains of 90% gold for one paper dollar. Beginning in X P N M M P
1933, the U.S. began moving away from the gold standard, which had Y E I Y V T F 0 OP M V I

The descendants of Dan Butler held their second annual family reunion in his honor on August 3

currently comprised of the direct descendants of the late Daniel "Dan" Butler, second son of the late
Alfred and Patsy Butler, born in 1856 in Decatur, Georgia. The branches consist of descendants of his
sons and daughters, including Gilbert Butler, Jim Butler, John Butler, Mary Butler Williams, Eliza
Butler Miller, Oscar Butler and Perry Canty-Cloud. The celebration commenced on Friday night

The Gadsden County Times August 23,2007 B 9:


Host families still needed in Gadsden County


Foreign high school students
are scheduled to arrive soon for
academic semester and year
homestay programs, and the
sponsoring organization needs a
few more local host families.
The students are anxiously
awaiting news of their new fam-
ilies. These young ambassadors
are looking forward to fulfilling
their life-long dreams.
According to Pacific
Intercultural Exchange (P.I.E.)
Executive Director, John Doty,
the students are all between the
ages of 15 and 18 years, are
English-speaking, have their*


own spending money, carry
accident and health insurance,
and are anxious to share their
cultural experiences with their
new American families. P.I.E.
currently has programs to match
almost every family's needs,
ranging in length from a semes-
ter to a full academic year,
where the students attend local
high schools.
P.I.E. area representatives
match students with host fami-
lies by finding common inter-
ests and lifestyles through an
informal in-home meeting.
Prospective host families are


able to review student applica-
tions and select the perfect
match. As there are no "typical"
host families, P.I.E. can fit a stu-
dent into just about any situa-
tion, whether it is a single par-
ent, a childless couple, a retired
couple or a large family.
Families who host for P.I.E.
are also eligible to claim a
$50.00 per month charitable
contribution deduction on their
itemized tax returns for each
month they host a sponsored
student.
For the upcoming programs,
P.I.E. has students from


Germany, the Former Soviet
Union, Venezuela, Argentina,
Brazil, Japan, Hungary, Korea,
Mexico, Australia, Yugoslavia,
China, and many other coun-
tries. P.I.E. is also participating
in two special government-
funded programs to bring schol-
arship students from the Newly
Independent States of the for-
mer Soviet Union as well as
predominantly Islamic countries
such as Yemen, Syria, Jordan,
Morocco, Kuwait, Iraq and
Qatar to the United States. P.I:E.
is a non-profit educational
organization that has sponsored


more than 25,000 students from
45 countries since its founding
in 1975. The organization is
designated by the United States
Department of State and is list-
ed by the Council on Standards
for International Educational
Travel (CSIET), certifying that
the organization complies with
the standards set forth in
CSIET's Standards for
International Educational Travel
Programs.
Doty encourages families to
contact the program immediate-
ly, as it will allow the proper
time for the students and hosts


to get to know one another
before they actually meet for the-
first time.
Gadsden County area fami-.'
lies interested in learning more
about student exchange or:
arranging for a meeting with a
community representative may '
call P.I.E., toll-free, at 1-866--
546-1402. The agency also has,-'
travel/study program opportuni-.
ties available for American high:'
school students as well as possi-'
bilities for community volun-:
teers to assist and work with,
area host families, students and
schools.

Jimmy Harris new


headmaster at RFM


Described in a spring edition
of the Post Searchlight news
article as a "Role Model,"
Jimmy Harris began his head-
master role on July 1, 2007.
Kudos for Harris were given by
the Georgia Region 1AAAA as
he was named the Athletic
Director of the Year in April.
Tommie Howell, BHS Principal,
described the RFM '78 alumnus
as," excellent and first class as a
coach, teacher, and administra-
tor." Joe Crine at the Post
Searchlight explained to readers
that Harris was returning to his
alma mater where he could
watch his children grow up.
Crine closed with the comment
that Harris would be missed in
Bainbridge but that RFM was
getting "a great role model."
In a note from Harris in the
August RFM Alumni newsletter
he says, "Greetings from Robert


F. Munroe Day School! I am
pleased to be 'back home' and
working at such a special and
important place in my life! I
look forward to helping contin-
ue the tradition of educational
excellence that has been associ-
ated with our school since its
inception, and I think that a big
thanks is due to Mr. Knight for
his efforts toward that end. I am
truly grateful for all pf the sup-
port and words of encourage-
ment that have been forthcom-
ing, and it is these sentiments
that truly make RFNM 'that spe-;
cial place!' Currently, there is a
lot of repair and maintenance
work underway, and we expect
the facilities to be on par when
the doors open in August and
school commences once again. I
encourage all to come and see
the school, our students, faculty,
and staff as often as you can,


whether it be for special pro-
grams, athletic events, or just to
visit. Our doors are always
open! Go Bobcats!"
Classes began on August 15,
2007, with the largest enroll-
ment in several years. Other
new faces on campus include
four new teachers along with
new staff member, Trent
Kramm, and bus driver Irvin,
Newsome. For information
about the school, calls to the
main number 850-856-5500

cator's certificate. Using an online
database, visitors to the. site are
able to obtain information on
teacher misconduct cases brought


to the state level. Currently, the
available information includes
action dates, complaint summaries
and descriptions of final out-
comes, including any penalties
that may hj\e been applied to an
educator's 'certificate. Similar to
other licensed professionals such
as physicians, accountants and
pharmacists, Florida educators are


subject to action against their cer-
tificate for substantiated miscon-
duct.
