City budget

hearing draws

questions

by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
During the first public hearing on the City of
Quincy's budget, commissioners had a lot of
questions for City Manager Bill Bogan.
Commissioner Finley Cook asked Bogan if
the correct numbers were in the budget as
presented. He told Bogan that the numbers he
presented in the tentative budget made no
sense.
"If you back out the true numbers, you will
know the true numbers," Bogan replied. *
"That's the way it should be reported," Cook
said, explaining that he would prefer Bogan
presented commissioners with numbers as they
are and not speculated numbers.
Bogan said he would have the correct,
numbers for the second public hearing.
Commissioners also discussed the budget of
the city's attorney, Jack McLean. Commissioner

Art show produces winners


by LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor
Rosemary Ferguson might have taken
first place in the Tallahassee
Watercolor Society's "Brush Strokes"
awards ceremony Friday night, but,
there were winners all around as 51 of
the group's pieces of art went on
display.
"I think it's a very good show and
from what I've heard there has been a
really good turnout," said Eluster
Richardson, president of the TaWS.
The evening's events began at 7 p.m.
with an exhibition of around 35 artists'
works. The juried show was judged by
Kaye Callaway.
Richardson commented on the
growth of the watercolor society before
unveiling the show's winners.
"We've been growing by leaps and
bounds," he said. "We now have
almost 200 members."
The group began in the late '70s as an

and boasts members from across
Florida, Georgia and Alabama.


Gadsden Arts Center Executive
Director Tricia Collins said the fact the
society chose to hold its show at the
GAC gives her a "sense that the Arts
Center is a vital component in Gadsden
County's economy."
It's also a chance for artists and
-appreciators to mingle and exchange
ideas.
Winners at Friday night's awards
ceremony were as follows:
* 'First place, Rosemary Ferguson,
"Up There."
* Second place, Nina Allen Freeman,
"Electric Sunset."

County hears
requests to halt
plans for asphalt
on Middle
Creek Road
by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
The Board of County
Commissioners heard something
Tuesday night during the regular
meeting that they rarely hear.
"This road does not need to be
paved. There are 12 families oui
there and only three want the
toad paved. This is a road that
doesn't need to be paved. Some
of us like a rural road. It's nice to
walk on and there is very little
traffic," said Don Weed, who
lives on Middle Creek Road in
the western part of the county.
The road is among the next to be
paved.
While many citizens are
clamering .to get road paved,
about 10 families who live along
Middle Creek and East 'Lake
Roads attended the meeting,
made it clear that most people in
their Sycamore Community area
don't want the asphalt to invade
their quiet community.
Weed and others, like Doug
Nunamaker and Ben Grenat, say
the county should save the
money and leave them alone.
"There are organic gardeners
out there and we don't want the
runoff from the asphalt," Grenat
said. All agreed that the area is
family and child friendly.
Nunamaker said it's a perfect
place for children to play safely,
for families' to take walks
together without. the worry of

Bear Creek educator recognized by PLT


By LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor
For forester Karen Weigelt, working
as education director at Bear Creek
Educational Forest off Pat Thomas
Parkway is the best of both worlds.
It's also a role that won her statewide
recognition Sept. 6 at a Florida
Forestry Association ceremony in


Ponte Vedra Beach.
"I'm very excited. It's a very big
honor," Weigelt said Tuesday. "I've
always been interested in nature and
forests, so I got a degree in forestry.
And I've always loved working with
kids. This is the perfect combination -
I've,loved every second of it."
Weigelt was one of two educators
from the Tallahassee area to be


recognized for work with Project
Learning Tree (PLT),, an
internationally-recognized
environmental education program.
,She was named 2007 Project
Learning Tree Educator of the Year at
the ceremony while David-Moody,
environmental educator at St. Marks
National Wildlife Refuge, was named
2007 Project Learning Tree Facilitator
of the Year.

Bear Creek Educational Forest
is the only educational forest in
the state of Florida. It opened in
2005, and Weigelt has been there
since.
Armed with a stack.of activity
books left by her predecessor, she
had a limited background in
educating visitors. But since her
arrival at Bear Creek, she's
created an acclaimed outreach
program with a full schedule of
school groups, scouting groups,
4-H youth, summer camps and
civic groups arriving daily to
explore the outdoors. In 2006,
nearly 2,000 youth participated in
a variety of PLT activities.
Weigelt graduated from Iowa
State University with a degree in
forestry and then went to work
for the United States Forest
Service in Arkansas at Ouachita
National Forest. From there, she
took a position as educator in the
Emporia, Ill., park district. When

hearing.
Commissioners also discussed
the budget of the city's attorney,
Jack McLean. Commissioner
Derrick Elias, who broke down
the attorney's $152,000 budget,
said the city cannot afford to pay
the attorney $13,750 a month.
McLean said he does not
automatically bill the city that
amount monthly but that when he
delivers invoices for services the
hours and work are itemized. He
said he works with other
attorneys from the firm of
Holland and Knight as well.
'My department's budget has
not increased, on average,.more
than any other department. It's
not that Jack McLean gets a
check for $13,750 per month.

"My husband was .able to

well," she said.
Weigelt teaches teachers as well
as children.
"She is involved in quite a few
outreach projects in Florida,"
Florida Forestry Association
spokeswoman Erin Glover said.
"Every year, 45 teachers from
around the state come to the
Northeast Florida area. Karen
joins in as the PLT coordinator
and shows them all parts of
forestry"
Teachers who attend a PLT
workshop receive background
information on natural resources,
free resource material and a
comprehensive activity guide
with 96 ready-made lesson plans
which have been correlated to the
state's educational standards.
They can then incorporate this
information into their classroom


teachings to reinforce curriculum
and allow students an opportunity
to explore forest resources for
themselves.
Project Learning Tree has won
recognition from conservation
and education groups throughout
the world. The program provides
multidisciplinary activities that
help teach science, math, art,
language arts, physical education
and social studies.
The Florida Forestry
Association is the only statewide
non-profit trade organization
representing the interests of
landowners, loggers, foresters
and the forest products industry
in Florida. Trees generate total
sales exceeding $16.6 billion
annually, according to the
association. The Florida forest
economy generates over 133,000
jobs and contributes significantly
to the recreation and tourism
businesses. For more information,

Mr. Bill didn't take credit cards


I stopped to get gas on my way to the
Florida-Tennessee football game. They
had a big sign saying I had to pre-pay
inside if I didn't have a credit card. I
thought about leaving and finding a filling
station where they trusted me!
And I had a credit card! Cathy and I
finally got one a couple of years ago
because we near 'bout got turned down at a
big hotel for just bringing cash. But that is
another story.....
I was in a little bit of a hurry so I stuck
my card in the slot and waited semi-
patiently while nothing happened! I turned
my card upside down and around and stuck
it back in the slot and waited not so
patiently while again, nothing happened. I
tried to cram the thing in sideways! I yelled
at the pre-teen girl pumping.gas into her
big SUV, "There ain't nothing 'convenient'
about thit!"
She took my card, made some magical
swipe through there that I couldn't see and
my gas pump came on. It must be like
iPods and Play Stations-they don't want
anyone over nineteen understanding how
they operate....
As the two dollars and seventy-two cents
a gallon gas slowly began to fill my tank
my mind drifted back to Bill Argo's Gulf
Station. You didn't have to stand in front
of the big pump there and peer at the
directions like some first-grader. Mr. Argo
himself would be out at your car before
you could open the door. "Good morning,
Kes-how much today?"
"Give me two dollars worth, please sir."
Unless I was completely empty, that
would give me over half a tank. You had
some options at Argo's Gulf. If you were
in a hurry you could just sit in the car. Bill
would get the gas going and ask about the
football game coming up Friday night
while he cleaned the windshield. He'd give
each head light a swipe as he switched
sides. As soon as he stopped the pump on
two dollars even he hurried to the front and
raised the hood to check the water and oil.
He instinctively gave a tug at your fan
belt....just to make sure. "Kes, you want
me to check those tires?"
"No sir, I think you got them last time." I
already had the two dollars extended out
the window.


"Thanks for coming in. Say hello to your
folks. And stick it to those Huntingdon
High Mustangs this week!"
You could be in and out in a matter of
minutes! They came out to your car and
pumped the gas for you. They asked about
your parents and the upcoming game and
they didil't try to sell you a Dale Earnhardt
cap, beef jerky or a lottery ticket! They
would accept your.money and give you
your change right in the car. You didn't
even have to turn down Jerry Lee
Lewis..... Now, that is a convenience
store!
If you had a few seconds you could get
out and peer under the hood with Mr. Bill.
You could casual like ask him if his niece
(the good looking one) was dating anyone.
He might even know if she was going to
the dance after the game. If you were polite
and mannerly, he might "put in a good
word" for you.....
If you had time to kill, you could go
inside and talk to the smartest men we had
in the county. I couldn't understand why
they weren't in Washington! They would
sit on that old couch by the Dentyne gum
dispenser and figure out in minutes the
most complex of local, state and
international situations..
If you had a spare nickel, you could get a
Coke out of the drink box. Mr. Bill had one
of the coldest drink boxes in town. If
Calvin Purvis wasn't changing a tire, and
you felt pretty lucky, you could play the
"fartherest bottle from here" game. You'd
both pull a Coke out of the box, check the
bottom to see where that bottle was made,
and the one that.was manufactured the
closest to the station had to pay for both
drinks. I hated to hold that little Coke
upside down and read "Jackson,
Tennessee"-that was only forty-five miles
away! Now, you draw a Sikeston,
Missouri, bottle and Calvin was a'fixing to
pay!
It wasn't exactly "I Want To Be A
Millionaire" but he thrill of victory is
always pretty sweet.
The pump cut off and that brought me
back to the present. I had, in one stop,
poured in 48 dollars and 75 cents worth of

Editor;
The Grants/ Housing and Community
Development on north Madison has a fine
staff of people, they were extremely helpful
in helping me receive a grant to fix my
home. Phyllis Moore is a very professional
lady; she worked with me to get things
started. Then the whole office got involved,
Timeeka Knowles, and Sonya Burns were a
big part of bringing it all together. When it
all came down and the work on my house
began contractor Michael Francis did the
job, Mr. Francis is a very talented man. His
crew of men worked hard to complete the
job, and in 5 weeks. I was back in my home
and I can't forget Ed Cox, he has a keen eye
as to what needs to be done to bring things
up to code. Avery special thanks to all!!

Tom Gatlin

Editor;
It is with deep sorrow that I read where
there are those on the Board of County
Commissioners who would vote to change
the will of the people of Gadsden County by
redirecting the money from the small county
surtax from infrastructure to Law
Enforcement salaries.
I do not deny the need to raise funding
for financing our Sheriff Department, but to
do it thelexpense of the bridges and roads of
the county borders on malfeasance and
misrepresentation of the people who elected
the Board of County Commissioners. It may
serve to remind those serving the.citizens of
our wonderful county, that it is the same
citizens who voted in 1997(?) on usage for
these funds, who will vote in the next
election based on who has served with honor
and respect for the people of the county and
those who have ignored the voice of the
people of the county as recorded at the
election booths.
Perhaps another option is available. It is
reported that the county budget has grown
some 45% over the last three years or so
from 28 to 40 million dollars. In that same
time the administrative costs of the county
have risen 400% percent from $300,000 to
1.3 million dollars. Restricting
administrative cost growth to the same 45%
seen in revenue growth would put their
budget costs at about $450,000, saving the
county about $850,000 that could then be
used to fund much needed raises for out
deputies in the Sheriffs Department.
Respectfully suggested,

to waste". Phyllis dedicated 26 years of her
life as an educator to the students of
Gadsden County and her community. It is
with this in mind and her desire to see all
children have the opportunity to reach their
full potential: that we ask you to join us in
this endeavor.

the median income is about

"Changes in the mortgage

Saunders.
"We've all heard the news
reports about the number of
sub-prime lending institutions
that have closed. For several
years, these lenders made it
possible for borrowers with
less than perfect credit to qual-
ify for a mortgage, even with
recent' delinquencies and

at 19 cents a gallon. Tommie Hill
would counter with one saying 18
cents! I figured their fight was my
gain. And forget about the two
dollars---I'd whip in and "filler

fast one until I saw Bill, Tommie
and Jim Ingram all having
breakfast together up at the City

made up thing to incite spending!
Those gasoline people are always
thinking.
Not long after I got out of college


I witnessed the slow demise of the
"service" station and the rapid rise
of the "convenience" store. I asked
Leon why this social, economic
and personal upheaval in the fuel
industry was taking place. "Oh,
they are letting us pump our own
gas and check our own oil and
clean our own windshield so they
can charge us less per gallon for
gasoline.'
SI have been pondering on that

"There are at. least 18-20
families who live on that road
and who do not want it paved,"
said Weed. He promised to
present the BoCC with a petition
with the names of those opposed
to the paving.
Commissioner Derrick Price,
who represents that district,
seemed surprised at the number
of his constituents who attended
the meeting. He said he has been
getting calls for the past three
weeks from people who want the
roads paved. But the residents
who attended the meeting said
those calls were from a minority.
Nor were any of the people who
Price said called him attended the
meeting.


In other matters:
,Commissioners voted for a
pilot program that would allow
the county to buy property and
contract a home for $100,000.
The project, according to the
statement of issue, would require
the purchase of one residential lot
to construct an affordable house,
expand the supply of affordable
housing available to Gadsden
County residents.
Commissioner Eugene Lamb
said he worried that the pilot
home and others to follow will
turn into a house political pawn.
He said that when governments
get involved, things turn political.
However Commissioner Doug
Croley said he was in favor of
affordable housing but not
through the county's expense?

"I don't believe the county'
should 'be getting into this.
Progams 'like Habitat For
Humanity can be partnered. It
Sallows pride in ownership and the
homeowners have to put in sweat
equity. I cannot approve this
approach,"Croley said.
"For whatever reason Habitat
For Humanity doesn't work in
Gadsden County. We have a
group of citizens who work in
agriculture, at Quincy Farms, or
furniture companies that pay a
survivable wage. Should they be
locked out of the American
dream?" asked Dixon. He added
that the program will serve
people who could not otherwise
purchase a home because they
simply did not make enough
money.
"It is our intent to provide a
range of residential development
in all areas of the County so
families may purchase homes that
are affordable and remain in the


home and not face foreclosure
due. to the inability to meet
payment requirement. In doing
so,. it is imperative that we
implement policies that ensure
any surplus County land, whether
resulting in code enforcement
action or foreclosure are utilized
for 'affordable housing. This
means that lots and land must be
acquired at minimal cost and the
home must be constructed at a
price that is affordable to residents
with low income," said Farnita
Sanders, director of community
development.
The homeowners approval is
not guaranteed and will be based
on their creditworthiness and
.ability to repay the mortgage.
They must qualify for -the
mortgage from selected lenders
approved by ,the State.
Community Development will
provide a list of lenders or they
may select a lender of their
choice.


THANK YOU CRAIG SCONIERS
Craig,
I want to take the time and thank you for all you did for our great aunt Irene
Kimble Pouncey during her time of illness before'passing on May 31, 2007. You
went above and beyond for auntie. Auntie called you her ANGEL, because when-
ever or whatever she needed you were there. Auntie spoke to me many times
about you taking time out of your busy schedule to take care of her, and that when
she is gone home to glory, no one was to bother you about paying any rent because
you took care of her and her property. Sad to say, her wishes were not granted.
Craig, without you we don't know what would have happened to auntie while she
was living alone. I want to thank for you keeping the property so beautifully
groomed. When auntie could not do for herself any longer, you took initiative and
moved in with her to make sure she didn't have to worry about falling while try-
ing to provide for herself or when she became ill she didn't have to worry about
calling others that really did not feel she was sick enough to go to the emergency
room, or simply because they did not want to be bothered.
We "know that you were wrongly evicted from the little house that had no elec-
tricity, no running water inside, and no stove. God has a blessing in store for you,
because you took care of auntie as if she was your own motlier. I thank you so
.much because, as we went about our everyday lives, we did not have to worry
about auntie house being cleaned, auntie being fed and clean everyday, because
you were there. We-say to you, continue to keep your head up because our fami-
ly members that have perished are smiling down on you and saying thank you for
caring and know that God has something wonderful in store for you!

CRA to fund roof repair for Arts Center building


By ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

The Community
Redevelopment Agency (CRA)
voted last week to repair the roof
a building purchased by Gadsden
Arts Center.
The new roof, which will cost
$27,500, is leaking and falling.
The building is next door to the


art center, directly across from the
east entrance of the courthouse.
The addition is roughly adds
approximately 2,000 square feet
at 9 North Madison Street and
will allow the center to continue
not only its current ongoing serv-
ices and activities, but will also
provide space for a Dean
Mitchell Study Hall, a Gadsden
County History Wall, and an Art


Cafe.
Dean Mitchell was in Quincy
approximately three weeks ago
and agreed to make visits to assist
with inspiring local youth with
their passion for art.
Center director Tricia Collins
said redeveloping the space will
add a thriving and active addition
to the Gadsden Arts Center that
will help revitilize, redevelop,


and draw people to Quincy's
beautiful and historic downtown.
She added that it would pro-
vide a gathering place for artists,
art patrons, and the community at
large as well as create more local
opportunities.
CRA Board member Andy
Gay said he wanted to see even
more dollars invested in redevel-
oping downtown.


"To date approximately
$9,000 has been spent downtown.
We have been trying to find a to
find a way (to redevelop) and I
want this to be a redevelopment
project," Gay said.
In other matters, the CRA
voted to:


allow CRA Manager
Charles Hayes and two members
of the CRA Advisory Board to
attend a statewide annual meeting
in Daytona Beach.
allow Manager Hayes to
also serve as MainStreet Director
on a temporary basis.

By LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor

A Gretna man missing since
Aug. 28 has been found in a

Police Chief
Brian Bess
said Williams


Williams


turned up in the Duval County

held on violation of probations
stemming from charges in

P&Z board meeting canceled due to lack of quorum


By LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor

The regularly scheduled
Gadsden County Planning and
Zoning Commission meeting set
for Sept. 13 was cancelled due to
lack of a forum.
Only a handful of people
showed up for the meeting, which
had a light agenda including a
public hearing on an administra-
tive request to amend several ele-
ments of the county's comprehen-
sive plan.
Suggested changes include


amendments to elements of the
plan dealing with future land use,
traffic circulation, housing, infra-
structure, conservation, recreation
and open space. The proposed
changes would involve "changing
text policies and associated maps
to reflect revised goals, objectives
and policies of the county,"
according to the agenda.
Also on last week's agenda
was a consideration of a request
for a variance that would permit a
building setback of 47 feet on a lot
that is close to a third of an acre.
The lot is on the south end of


McCall Bridge Road.
The Commission will meet
27 at 6 p.m. in the Gadsden


County Commissioners' meet-
ing room to consider the above
agenda items.

By Joe Ferolito


Boss's son Jeffery Ashcroff handed over my Arkansas pick and wound up
me my first loss of the year last Saturday hitting 8 of 10 while I was 7 of the 10.
with the help of the Alabama comeback Thus I slip to 2-1 for the year and get
against Arkansas. Jeffery picked "Bama" ready to face my next foe.


He's Havana born and raised Matt
Register. Matt has been rather busy of
late helping plan and prepare the benefit
honoring his classmate "Ted" Cames
which will be held Saturday at the
National guard Armory here in Quincy.
Like "Ted", Matt was a 1983 gradu-
ate of Robert F. Munroe and like "Ted"
one of the school's outstanding athletes.
Matt in fact was a football All-
County. All Big Bend and All-State
player in his senior year at Munroe.
From graduation at the Mt. Pleasant
school. he went to Troy and earned a
B.S. Degree in Social Science. He then
went to FSU and got a Masters in Social
Science Education.
Matt is now an instructor with
Florida Verrual School. He also teaches
on line and tries to line up as much time
as he can with daughters Gracte (age 9)
and Matti iage 7).
Let's see ho\w he lines up with me
with his picks this week.....
FLORIDA over OLE..MISS-Tebow
and the Gators are looking good.


MIAMI over TEXAS A&M-The
Orange Bowl will, be the difference.
INDIANA over ILLINOIS-Because
Zook coaches Illinois.
ALABAMA over GEORGLA-Bama
looks to be on the upnse.
MICHIGAN over Penn STATE-
Maybe the Wolverines have sohled their
problems.
UCF over MEMPHIS-A rebound
from the tough Texas loss.
' GEORGIA TECH over VIRGINIA-
Tech's defense wins this one.
WAKE FOREST over MARY-
LAND-Because they are the defending
ACC Champs.
ARKANSAS over KENTUCKY-
Rebounding from Alabama.
LSU over SOUTH CAROLINA-
Tigers too good for Gamecocks.
Here's hoping this FSU fan isn't too
good for me as I think it's.....
FLORIDA over OLE NMISS-You
might want to take the Rebs and the
points.though. Gaior teams don't play
well in.the Magnolia State.


MIAMI o\er TEXAS A&M-It's a
Thursday night game and the Orange
Bowl ain't a nice place to be at night.
ILLINOIS ovel INDIANA-Zook has
better players that the Hoosier's have.
MICHIGAN over PENN STATE-
Every week will .be a mission for
Michigan.
ALABAMA over GEORGIA-Tide's
home and that's a big thing here.
UCF over NMENPHIS-If the Kmghts
forget the Texas game.
GEORGIA TECH over VIRGINIA-
If the Jackets forget the BC game.
WAKE FOREST over MARY-
LAND-Deacs to step past Terps.
ARKANSAS over KENTUCKY-
McFadden's legs over Woodson's arm.
LSU ovei SOUTH CAROLINA-
Even the "ole ball coach" ain't a match
for these Tigers.
And match, is what Matt and I almost
did as we differ just ONE ume. Ihope I
and a whole lot other people see you
Saturday. Matt, to tell yo thanks for your
work with the "Ted" Cames benefit.

Panthers get nipped by Bulldogs


Scoreboard


By JOE FEROLITO
Times Sports Editor
-'"Ii'what was far firm a s~I6oth
game, Crestview took advantage
of their opportunities and scrapped
out a 27-7 football win over West
Gadsden Friday night in
Crestview.
The Bulldogs controlled the
ball most of the night running off
53 plays compared to the Panthers
37. The Home team couldn't pull
away though until the fourth quar-
ter when they put two touchdowns
on the board to wrap things up.
5A Crestview had only a 10-7
halftime lead and was up only 13-


7 after three quarters. 1A West
Gadsden kept close by playing
tough defense. In fact, the only
Panther' tochtdbwriyIame on .a
defensive play. Defensive tackle
Gary Brown knocked a fumble
loose from the Crestview quarter-
back and Anthoney Hurbert
picked it up and ran 42 yards for a
touchdown. Jose Calderon's pat
kick put the 7th Panther point on
the board.
The play happened late in the
second quarter with West Gadsden
behind 10-0.
Crestview got those 10 on a 39-
yard field goal by David Pyle, a 9-.
yard touchdown run by D.D'.


Johnson, and a pat kick by Pyle.
Midway the third quarter
Pyle's 35-yard field goal put the
Bulldogs ahead 13-7. West
Gadsden then put together a drive
that reached the Crestview 18
before the Bulldogs held on fourth
down. The biggest play of the
night happen then. The Bulldogs
misfired on a wide pitchout and it
looked like the Panthers might
cover the ball inside the Crestview
5. The ball got out of bounds and
the Bulldogs retained possession.
On a third and 22 play West
Gadsden couldn't contain Chris
Briley who dashed 31 yards get-
ting Crestview out of trouble. The


run also took steam out of the
Panthers and the Bulldogs mwent
on down to score on a 1-yard
Cbris. Pilntt run.. Latein.the.
game Crestview scored their last
touchdowns when Johnson ran in
from 15 yards out.
Heading the defensive effort
for West Gadsden was Leroy
Smith, Terry Williams, Brown,
Marvin Home, and Pierre
Edwards.
Smith was in on 12 tackles, and
Edwards recovered a fumble. The
loss left West Gadsden at 1-3.
They play their first district game
Friday night when they host rival
Sneads at 8 pm.

Envision
c. r e i u i n


EAST GADSDEN
Last week: East Gadsden was open.
This week: The Jaguars (2-1) will host
Leon (0-3) in their first home game this year.
Game time is 7:30 pm.
Last year: The teams did not meet.
What to look for: The Jaguars were off
last week. They spent it working on their
running game and are hoping to show,
improvement in that part of their game. The
0-3 record of Leon's is deceiving, as they
came at the hands of Godby, Wakulla, and
Lincoln, all ranked teams.

MUNROE
Last week: Lost to Bell 45-24.
This week: The Bobcats (1-2) will host
Aucilla at 7:30 pm at Corry Field.
Last year: Munroe got.their ground game
going and won 39-13 in Aucilla.
What to look for: The Bobcats won a
spring jamboree game against Aucilla as


their big offensive line played well. The
game could be a high scoring affair with the
running of the Bobcats..Donterius Johnson
and the passing of the Warriors Matt Dobson,
just an 8th grader, providing fireworks.

WEST GADSDEN
Last week: Lost to Crestview 27-7.
This week: The Bulldogs (1-3) host
Sneads (2-0) at 8 pm in their first district
game this year.
Last year: West Gadsden put up a solid
defense in a 10-3 win.
What to look for: Sneads had a pair of
100 yard runners against Franklin County
last week in a 57-0 win. Both Shedrick
Douglas and Mark Lawson passed the century
mark. Watch for Sneads to try to run it again
this week. West Gadsden has the defense to
stop the Pirates. The offense needs to get
more consistent and take pressure off that
defense.

doubt in my mind that this will
be a great season for Munroe

The win put Munroe at 6-4
on the season.

team has fallen on some rough
times this season but coach Gail
Smith is still optimistic about
her team. Their record so far is
one win and five losses but the
team will truly be tested this

games. Their lone win was to
Victory Christian last Friday.
Coach Smith is impressed with
the all around play of Lauren
Chambers and Chastitty Henry
and .especially with the serving
of Emily Burdick.
The team will continue to
work hard in preparation for the
Panhandle Christian Conference
tournament in mid-October.

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


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


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

Taking a 'sniff' out of crime








Law

enforcement


officers

come to

Quincy to

get vital

bloodhound

tracking

training






by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
It's 3 p.m. and your child has
not come home from school. You
watch the clock and she still has
not arrived by 3:30 and you
begin to panic. By 4 p.m. you are
frantic and decided to call 9-1-1.
Shortly after the first officer
arrives another one comes up
with a bloodhound trained
specifically to follow scents.
That's a scenario that k-9
officers with trained bloodhound
dogs face all too often. But the
good part is that they have a very
good track record when it comes
to finding lost children, older
people who have wandered away
from home and criminals.
Last week, officers from 16
Florida jurisdictions were in
Quincy to train their animals in
tracking scents in residential
neighborhoods. The dogs were
exposed to several scenarios. Jon
Burcham of the Polk County
Sheriffs Officer was conducting
the training in the Washington,
Duval, and King Streets area.
"In urban area some of the
officers can be in residential
areas four or five times a week.
We assist a lot in finding lost


children but the kind of work
that these dogs perform varies,"
Burcham said.
Gadsden County deputy Joe
Barnes, a four year veteran, took
part in the first exercise and was
the subject of the manhunt. He
said his job was to hide and the
handler and the animal had to
seek him out. Minutes after dog
was given the scent Deputy
Robert Wilkins and his dog
"Punch" from Pasco County
were on Barnes' trail. Within
minutes "Punch" had found
Barnes' hiding place.
Barnes and his dog, Stormy,
have attended several training
including one at the academy
and one in Jacksonville. "It was
a little more advanced training
for me and my dog," Barnes
said.
Trainers and observers from
the Pat Thomas Law
Enforcement Academy then
critiqued Wilkins and "Punch"
and their performance. "This is
what the training is all about. We
want the dogs exposed to various
scenarios After each exercise,
they exchange ideas and
network. The learn more from
each other in the field than
anyplace else," Burcham said.


The officers say their main
goal is finding' missing and
abducted children. "If a child
goes missing it becomes very
special to us.
In his career k-9 deputy
"Chopper" has found five
missing children but most of the
50 catches he has had were
criminal: Ross Welborn of.
Quincy also took part in -the
exercise. A trainer with the
Florida Wildlife Commission,
Welborn help by becoming the
subject of the manhunt.


He was found hiding in a
thicket under a tree on the quiet
street.
He told the officer that he did a
good job with handling his dog
and that his animal "stayed with
the scent" despite the difficulty.
Deputy B.J. Norman from
Brevard County and his
bloodhound "Buck" took part in
an exercise where the animal
must track two suspects. "We
had them split up and the dog
had to find one and then
backtrack and find the other,"


Above, Deputy Robert
Wilkins and "Chopper" were
in training from Pasco County.
The team was one of 16 taking
part in the Jimmy Rice
Bloodhound Training class at
the Pat Thomas Academy. Left,

said Welborn. Norman said he
was happy for the training
because two of the four catches
he and Buck have made have
been finding lost children.
Sheriff Morris Young
welcomed the class to the
county.
"I'm happy that you all are
here. You fellas do a great job
and we are happy to have you,
come back anytime," he said.
Young said that the academy is
plus for us because they training
classes also help the county.

verse of the week:
Man that is bor of a woman is of few days and full of trouble
Job 14:1 (KJV)


Fall is such a pretty season, all
the different colors of leaves
I and the chill in the air. Just like
fall reminds me of winter
coming, it also reminds me of
just how fragile and short life is..
in life there are seasons, similar
to the atmospheric seasons. In
the fall of life is when we should
be settling down in retirement
trying to enjoy all the things
around us, like the leaves.
Every day of our lives we
should be sure of our salvation,
but especially late in life. Do
yourself a favor, check out your
salvation this fall, and be sure
you are ready to go!

before starting Use bright crayons to draw a picture on fine
sandpaper then place the sandpaper upside down on light-
weight paper Press with an electric iron set on medium
until the crayon shows through the back of the paper

The Girl Scout Council of the Apalachee
Bend (GSCAB) will embark on its annual Fall
Program Activity sale September 15. Area Girl
Scouts will take preorders for a variety of deli-
cious candy and nut product through
September 30, products preordered will be
delivered between October 27 and November
11.
The Girl Scout Fall Product Program activity
is an important part of Girl Scouting. In addi-
tion to providing funding for troops, the pro-
gram activities are a Girl Scout's introduction
to the world of business.
'It is a wonderful opportunity for girls to learn
financial responsibility as well as how to plan,
set goals, manage finances and provide cus-
tomer service" stated Raslean M. Allen, COE
of the Girl Scout Council.
"The program activity sale is also an opportu-
nity for troops to earn Try-Its, Badges, and
Interest Patches" she further stated. According
to product manager Audrey Moore, "All pro-
ceeds, after paying the nut company, stay in
the 15 county area the council serves.
A portion of the money is used to support
council properties, camping, and Girl Scout
program activities.
A share of what remains goes to the troop
level, where girls decide how to spend it, thus
further encouraging goal-setting and leader-
ship abilities."
This year's promises to be a success with a
line-up of tasty treats including Mint Trefoils,
milk chocolate filled with creamy mint centers


in the shape of the Girl Scout Trefoil, in a
beautiful Camp Tin; Pecan Supremes, classy
combination of creamy caramel and pecans
covered in rich milk chocolate, in a Happy
Holiday Tin; and A Cashew Lover's Delight
with gourmet cashews, delicately roasted and
lightly salted to perfection.
Other Favorite include Chocolate Covered
Raisins, Chocolate Covered Almonds,
Cranberry Trail Mix, Deluxe Mix, Malted
Milk Balls, Peanut Butter Cups, Honey
Roasted Peanuts, Spicy Cajun Mix, Dulcet de
Leche, All Natural Mix and Fruit Slices.
In addition to the candy and nut products,
individuals also have the option of participat-
ing in the QSP Reader's Digest program.
Through this program the girls earn funds for
their troop by obtaining new and renewed
magazine subscriptions often with savings of
up to 85% off of newsstand prices! The Fall
Program Activity is one of many Girl Scout
Leadership programs that teach girls to discov-
er, connect, and take action, while building
courage, confidence and character, to, make
the world a better a place.

FSU hosts campus and commu-

nity sustainability conference


Environmental experts and social-change
trailblazers are expected to propose cutting-
edge ideas concerning the creation and
sustainment of a green-minded society during
a three-day conference at Florida State
University.
"Getting to the Green," the second annual
Campus and Community Sustainability
Conference, will be held Oct. 14 Oct. 16 at
the Oglesby Union. Hosted by the FSU
Sustainable Campus and Community
Committee and the Council for Sustainable.
Florida, the conference. will provide an
opportunity for individuals from .campuses,
government, businesses and communities to
come together to share their experiences and
challenges related to creating sustainability
and a .green culture. The event is free and
open to the public.
We are excited to go to FSU for our
sophomore appearance, which is always the
toughest," said Tim Center, director of the
Collins Center for Public Policy and the head
of the Council for Sustainable Florida.
"People come to Florida for our beaches and
beautiful environment, and if we destroy it,
the people will not come here and we will
have no economy."


With a focus on sustainability -- the
commitment by individuals, businesses and.
other organizations to take environmental
responsibility -- the panelists will brainstorm
ways to improve the overall quality of life for
Florida's citizens. Presentation topics include
fostering cultural change and developing
community partnerships.
Keynote speakers are:
Tom Kimmerer -- Executive Director of
the Association for the Advancement of
Sustainability in Higher Education
Devesh Nirmul -- Institute of Food and
Sciences Regional Specialized Agent for
Urban Environmental Sustainability
Scott Minos -- Communications
Specialist for the U.S. Department of Energy
and an FSU alumnus
How important is sustainability to our
society? "As the famous Boy Scout saying
goes, 'leave the campsite better than you
found it,'" Center said. "Each person needs to
take responsibility for their actions relative to
the environment."

Learning Geography at HMS


The seventh grade social
studies book, "The World and
its People" Starts with a ques-
tion. How.do I study geogra-
phy? The book ventures on
into common map projects
ranging from parts of maps to
types of maps. The book starts
with a map frenzy. The social
studies teachers at Havana
Middle School thought what
better way to make maps
come to life than with Google
maps. With the aid of a pro-
jector and a smart board the
entire class was able to locate
his/her home. The students
were in awe. The class got
loud with excitement, "It's my
turn," "Type in Conyers
street,." "What about
Midway," "Let's go down
highway 12." It was an experi-
ence the students won't soon
forget and hopefully it
emanated as much learning as
it did fun and noise.

The beginning of a school year
brings about changes in' person-
nel, students, and activities. East
Gadsden High School is no
exception to this rule. This year,
East Gadsden High School is
proud to announce changes to
enhance the 2006-2007 program
that captured the attention of the.
Gadsden community, neighboring
counties, and bordering states.
Last year, the Gadsden County
School Board created Florida's
1st Corrections Leadership Career
Academy Dual-Enrollment pro-
gram where high school senior
enrolled concurrently in a law
enforcement academy. While
completing their high school
requirements to earn their diplo-
mas, 20 students were also
enrolled at Tallahassee
Community College Pat Thomas
Law Enforcement Academy.
These students matriculated
through .a 532 hour Correctional
Officers Basic Recruit Training
Program at Pat Thomas Law
Enforcement Academy, complet-
ed a professional leadership and
development seminar and 8 of the
20 students completed the State
Officers Certification
Examination. These newly mint-
ed officers are currently working
at the Apalachee Correctional
Institute in Sneads, Florida.
Due to the tremendous success
of the 2006-2007 program, this
year's program has been renamed
the Gadsden Leadership and.


Criminal Justice Career Academy
and expanded to include more
programs. Along with the 20 cor-
rectional officer positions that the
program offered last year, the
Academy will enroll 40 students
in the Private Security Officers
Program and another 40 students
in the Public Safety
Telecommunications Dispatchers
Program. Additionally, seniors
attending West Gadsden High
School may also participate in this
program by enrolling in the
Corrections- Leadership and
Career Academy. Only 20 posi-
tions are available foi students
who desire to be employed as cor-
rectional officers.
To ensure that the students
attain the necessary skills needed
to complete the rigors of a profes-
sional criminal justice program,
the Professional Leadership and
Development Seminar has been
moved to the beginning of the
Academy with many community
leaders speaking to the future
cadets. Notable community lead-
ers and speakers who have partic-
ipated in our Speaker's Forum
include Captain Donald Frost,
Statewide Training Coordinator,
Department of Transportation;
Mr. Charlie Bradford, Human
Resources Manager, Florida
Department of Corrections;
Officer Ann Williams of the
Department of Transportation;
and Mr. Ray Brown, Chief of
Security and Investigations of the


Florida Lottery.
On Friday, September 7, 2007,
a community leader and member
of the Gadsden Criminal Justice
Advisory Board participated in
the Speaker's Forum. Dr. Evelyn
Ploumis-Devick, Executive
Director of Agency Planning and
Partnerships for the Florida
Department of Corrections was
instrumental last year in coordi-
nating and facilitating the
Department of Corrections' rela-
tionship with the District. Dr.
Ploumis-Devick has supported
the Academy from its inception
'by coordinating support letters
from key constituents, within the
Department, assisting in the
development and construction of
the grant application, and provid-
ing structure recommendations
for the professional development
seminar. She specializes in pro-
fessional development and leader-
ship training. From Dr. Ploumis-
Devick's presentation, students
learned the importance of being
visionary thinkers and effective
communicators. She also led a
discussion of what qualities are
necessary to. become an effective
leader.
I If you are interested in learning
more about this magnificent pro-
gram, please contact Mr. Kimblin
E. NeSmith, Executive Director
of the Gadsden Leadership and
