Drug bust nets three


$50,000 in cocaine confiscated


By ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
The largest cocaine bust in the City of
Quincy, an estimated, 252 grams with a
street value of approximately $50,000, went
down last Thursday night during a pouring
thunderstorm. Quincy police are still
looking for 26-year-old Teriel L. Young,
the man they say is responsible for 30-40
percent of the cocaine sold in the city.
"He was a major drug distributor," said
Inv. Clarence Pearson of the Quincy Police
Department referring to Young, the only
one of four suspects to get away, Young
scaled a 'fence and disappeared into the


rainy night. But not before he dropped his
"business" cell phone in the yard.
"He ran and left his sister holding the bag.
She knew what was going on, she had to be
a part of it. We expect more arrests' from
the phone. It has not stopped ringing since
we confiscated it." said QPD Officer
Delwyn Hall. The ringtone on Young's cell
phone goes like this: "I'm the dope man, I'm
the dope man, I'm the dope, dope, dope,
man."
Arrested and at the scene was Young's
28-year-old sister, Sheneka Deshana
Young, 26-year-old Belton Johnson, and

It's hard to believe the flu season is upon us
already. The flu is serious business; it's not
just a runny nose or upset stomach. It is a
seriouts'illness that can lead to pneumonia. At
least 45,000 Americans die each year from
influenza and pneumonia, the sixth leading
cause of death in the United States. Ninety
percent of these deaths are among people 65
years of age and over.
Individuals who should be vaccinated first

hospital for


Gadsden

Consultant urges county
to look for other possible
health care options,

by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
Gadsden Couint cannot afford a hospital at this time
and it is not economically feasible at this time to open
the hospital.
"It's not a good picture. There is a cei-tin e'.pense
factor we have to deal with if we're going to open the
hospital or we have to look at
something else," said hospital
consultant Joe Sharp.
The certain expense factor is
around a million dollar' loss per
year if the hospital re-opens with
only five permanent beds.
Therefore, the Bohrd, of Directors
for Gadsden Hospital, Inc., will tell
to .the Bdard ofd- County
Commissioners that until such' time. Sharp
as the, hospital receives Critical
Access Designation,: they can stop looking for
management companies to run the hospital.
The 6nly way for the hospital to break even is to get
the Critical Access Designation.
For more than a two years, several months before the
hospital closed in November 2005, the Board of
Directors haS met to decide on a management company
to recommend to the BoCC. Only two companies have
remained in the running to manage the hospital that
started with more.than 25 companies showing initial
interest. The two remaining are Alliant and Tallahassee
Memorial Regional.
"Alliant is very much interested if we have critical
designation, TMH is interested whether we have

Mitchell's Story."

By LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor
Betty James' labor of love is
now on bookshelves.
James' biographical account of
Quincy native Dean Mitchell and
his struggle to achieve his dream
of becoming an artist was
recently published by Father &
Sons Publishing of Tallahassee.
James, a long-time educator and
wife of Gadsden County Schools


Superintendent Reginald James,
said she is elated to see the book
in print.
"It's hard to explain the
feeling," she said. "It's one of
those dreams you hope to have
come 'true and' when it does,
you're just humbled."
James wrote the manuscript in
three months' time "Once I
started writing, the words just
flowed," she said and hopes the
book will serve as an


encouragement for children and
adults alike.
"I wanted to get a book in the
hands of children that would be
very understandable and that
gives the message that you can be
whatever you want to be with
hard work and determination,"
James said. "You don't have to
be from the big city to achieve. It
doesn't matter where you're
from, it's where you're going."
Mitchell grew up in Quincy,


raised by his grandmother while
his mother went to college and
later, to work up North. He went
to work in the tobacco fields
when he was 8. He developed an
interest in painting at an early age
and pursued that hobby in the
face of poverty and several
relatives who tried to dissuade
him.
He went on to study art at the

DRUG BUST from Page 1


Sheneka Young has been
charged with possession of
cocaine with intent to sell,
possession of crack cocaine with
intent to sell, possession of
marijuana, possession of drug
equipment, possession of drug
paraphernalia, possession of
counterfeit cocaine with intent to
sell, possession of a stolen
firearm, contributing to the
delinquency of a minor, animal
cruelty, and maintaining a drug
house. She is currently in the
County jail on $50,000 bond. If
convicted she could face life in
prison.
Both Jordan and Johnson were
arrested and charged with
possession of crack cocaine. In
addition, Johnson was wanted on
an open warrant and at the time
of his arrest was in possession of
a small amount of marijuana.
A warrant has been issued for
Teriel Young, he will be charged


with
possession of
cocaine with
intent to sell,
possession of
crack cocaine
with intent to
sell,
possession of
marijuana, Johnson
possession of
drug paraphernalia, possession of,
counterfeit cocaine with intent to
sell, possession of a stolen
firearm, contributing to the
delinquency of a minor, animal
cruelty, maintaining a drug house,
possession of a firearm by a
convicted felon (he was released
from the Department of
Corrections in February 2007 on
a drug conviction), possession of
a firearm while in the
commission of a felony, and
possession of counterfeit money.
"He would be "better off if he


himself in.
He is not safe
on the street.
These people
will want

won't care
that he is Jordan
running. He
will be safer with law
enforcement than being on the
run," said Quincy Police Chief
Gerald McSwain.
According to Pearson, police
began conducting an
invesitgation following numerous
complaints from people in the
area about noise, unwanted
traffic, and the dog fighting that
recently started.
.Following an investigation that
lasted more than a month, officers
descended on the residence that
Shaneka Young and her four


children
shared with
.Teriel Young
around 9 p.m.
When officers
arrived to
execute a
search
warrant, Inv.. ,. .
Pearson said, S. Young
they saw
Teriel Young run from the back of
the residence. He had been sitting
in a rented car with Johnson and
Jordan.
But it was what officers found
inside the house that was most
disturbing. "Where most people
with children have groceries in
the pantry, they had cocaine. We
found cocaine on the counter
right next to the baby formula,"
said Police Chief McSwain.
"Drugs were scattered
throughout the kitchen area.and
the pantry area was full of drugs.


A caramel
popcorn box
with a false
bottom was in
the cabinet
but was filled
with cocaine,
there was
cocaine
throughout T. Young
the pantry. All
of the substances tested positive
for cocaine or crack cocaine,"
wrote Inv. Pearson in his official
report. Also found inside the
residence was drug equipment,
including a hot plate used to
process powder, cocaine into.
crack cocairie, wire utensils used
to stir cocaine, a stolen .45
semiautomatic pistol stolen in
Winter Haven, various
ammunitions, two large bags of
counterfiet cocaine and
counterfeit crack cocaine, as well
as $400 in counterfiet bills in


$100 denominations.
"All of this was in close
proximity to Sheneka Young's
four young children," Pearson
said. The home is also across the
street from a daycare operation.
In the back yard of the home
officers located four grown pit
bulls that suffered from
malnutrition and had facial and
body scarring consistent with
dogs that participate in dog
fighting. There were also five pit
bull puppies at the residence.
"The activity at that house was
causing noise, unwanted traffic
and dog fighting. They weren't
trying to hide any of their
activities. They had just erected a
large fence around the house.
People in the neighborhood were
locking up and staying inside
their homes," said Chief
McSwain, adding, "they were
afraid that something might
happen at any time."

critical designation or not,"
Sharpe said.
Members of the Board of
Directors agree that getting the
critical access designation is a
long shot,
"How long are we going to beat
this horse?" asked chairman
Craig McMillan,
"The numbers are not going to


change." McMillan and the
Board's concern is rooted in
finances and whether the county
can reasonably afford a hospital.
Right now, the. Urgent Care
Center is losing about a half
million dollars a year and about
10 people visit per day.
"Without critical access it just
doesn't make sense to to ask


TMH to keep giving us
numbers," said Board member
Jimmy Suber.
Dr. Charles Kent, a board
member and local physician, said
he was surprised by the under
utilization of the Urgent Care
Center. "I talk to patients daily
who still don't know about the
Urgent Care Center. I don't know


if its TMH or the county who
hasn't marketed it. I'm beginning
to think maybe we don't need a
hospital. If we had people dying
or falling out all over the place,
then maybe," he said.
But the decision on what to do
with the hospital is not a decision
for the Board of Directors.
"My recommendation would be


to put the figures in the hands of
the people who have been elected
to make the decision," said
Darryl Marshall. Shelia Atkins
agreed with Marshall, saying
"this board has done what we
were asked to do and it's time to
pass it on."
In considering other options,
other board members agreed with


McMillan who wanted to know if
the Urgent Care Center could be
expanded to an emergency room.
He said if memebrs of the
Legislature's Health Committee
really wanted to help Gadsden
County they could pass a bill
specific to Gadsden County and
grant premission for a stand-
alone emergency room.

Concert organizers seek permit


By LESLIE ROBERTS

Big plans are in the works for
the Bear Creek area.
Organizers of the Bear Creek
Music and Art Festival will
appear before Gadsden County
commissioners Oct. 16 to
request a special event permit
for next month's three-day
music festival. To date, 47 bands
are expected to perform.
Thomasville native Lyle
Williams, of TLW Acquisitions
LLC, paid around $2.3 million
for the 450-acre Ponderosa
Wildlife Preserve at the
intersection of Lake Talquin and
Sadberry roads Aug. 10.
Formerly a private wildlife
preserve owned by engineers
Greg Preble and Ralph Rish, the
site went up for sale last year.

Estimates indicate that 1 out of
150 children will be diagnosed
with an autism spectrum disorder
(ASD), but most will not be
diagnosed until they are almost
ready to start kindergarten.
Amy Wetherby, the L.L.
Schendel Professor of
Communication Disorders at
Florida State University, has
received a four-year grant expected
to total nearly $1.4 million from the
Centers for Disease Control and
Prevention to determine the
prevalence of ASD in children
under age 4. The new study will
-expand Wetherby's FIRST
WORDS Project, an early
identification and intervention
program, by screening 16,000
children in.North Florida.
"There is not yet a biological
marker for ASD so the diagnosis of
ASD is based on a set of behavioral
features," Wetherby said. "Our
efforts to. screen a general
population sample through the
FIRST WORDS Project have
provided the' research to; help us,
know the early signs. This new


County youth in the summers

"We've been discussing
donating .the land to the county
parks and rec department for
kids to use in the summer," he
said.
"In the long term, we think this
will be good for Gadsden
County."
If all goes as planned, Levine
said, the event will take place
Nov. 16-18 and offer attendees
music, art and camping.
Three-day passes are $95 until
gates open and $110 at the gate.
Day tickets will be available
only at the gate for $45 per day.
Thursday night early entry
tickets are $20.
All weekend passes include
primitive camping. For those
who want their cars nearby,
upgraded car camping is $30 per
car.
Bands scheduled to appear are
as follows: Umphrey's McGee,
Burning Spear, Little Feat,
Perpetual Groove x 2, Ivan

autism research grant


CDC study will provide more
research to further refine those
early signs."
The CDC selected FSU and a site
in California to be the first to
determine the prevalence of autism
disorders in children under 4. The
median age of diagnosis in the
United States is about 4 1/2,
according to the CDC-funded
Autism and Developmental
Disabilities Monitoring Network.
Earlier this year, the network
released the results of a study that
indicated 1 out of 150 children at
age 8 have an ASD.
Along with communication
disorders faculty member Lindee
Morgan, Wetherby will focus on
the prevalence of an ASD at two
ages in early childhood, 18 and 30
months. Identifying ASD early will
allow experts to begin early
intervention efforts to boost social,
language and cognitive skills and
hopefully improve outcomes, she
said.
"Because we will be the first to
determine prevalence at this young
age; I'm not sure' what we will


find," Wetherby said. "Maybe it
will be the.same as in 8-year-olds
or maybe it will be higher, which
may mean that some children show
the symptoms very early and then
some clear up. Then again, maybe
it will be lower, which means that
fewer'children show the symptoms.
early and it does not fully unfold
until later. We won't know until we
do the study. It also will be
important to see if we find any
differences between the two ages
of 18 and 30 months."
Children will be recruited from a
representative sample of 16,000
children born between April 2006
and March 2010 in 12 .Florida
Panhandle counties. Doctors and
childcare providers will be asked to
give parents a checklist of
appropriate use of words, sounds,
gestures and behaviors for children
between 9 and 18 months old.
Children who fail the screening and
randomly selected children who
pass will be invited to complete an
autism-specific screening when
they are between 10 and 18 months
old.:

Contemplation



October: An important


month for women


The month of October is one that brings two issues
that affect women to the forefront. Both issues are
important and both can be potentially deadly.
This is Breast Cancer Awareness Months and
women are reminded that self breast examinations
and mammograms are urged. We will be given
information from all facets of media. I hope that
women will not gloss over the information and pay it
no heed.
Ask my friend Roxanne Johnson just how important
early detection can be and she will tell you that it
saved her life. I remember the day she came into the
office and after she finished her business, she kind of
hung around in the office. I asked her what was
wrong and she told me that she had been diagnosed
with breast cancer.
I assured her that breast cancer is not an automatic
death. I knew that from all of the years.I volunteered
as a member of the Board of Directors for the East
Gadsden Unit of the American Cancer Society. Part
of those meetings were devoted to explaining new
medical break through in technology and treatment.
But the thing that really saved Roxanne's life was
early detection. She went to have her mammogram
and early detection was the key. Roxanne is one of .
many women in our community who have survived
breast cancer. There are many more women who will
be diagnosed in Florida this year with breast cancer.
Many of them will survive which was not the case
just ten years ago.
So when Relay For Life comes around this spring
and you are asked to give, think of it and investing in
your community. Some of the money goes into
research to save the lives of the Roxanne's throughout
the nation.


October is also Domestic Violence Awareness
Month. There is no surgery or therapy to fix it.
Women are abused about every 30 seconds in the
United States. And while we condemn people in
other countries on how they treat their women, all we
need to do islook around, close to home.
If you know or suspect that a woman is the victim
of abuse, it is incumbent upon you to say something.
Offer her the number of the Refuge House, they have
people who are trained to talk to women and to help
them out of an abusive situation.
Unfortunately many women, for whatever the
reasonss, remain in relationships that are life
threatening. You never know when the telephone
number you have given them will come in handy.
When they may decide that they have had enough
mental and physical abuse and finally decide to leave,
There are good programs available. There is.
counseling and, through the Refuge House,

Editor,

Lawmakers will be doing a great
disservice to Floridians by letting PIP
and/or uninsured motorist auto
insurance laws expire.
There may be flaws in the law, but the
good, critical part of this law involves
pedestrians, bicyclists, hit and runs and
uninsured drivers. If you have PIP and
uninsured motorist insurance in Florida
and you are a pedestrian or bicyclist,
your auto insurance covers you first,
then your health insurance. A young
childwalkirg to elementary school or a
college kid crossing Tennessee that get
hit and run by a car are covered (to the
extent of their coverage) if their parents
or they.have auto insurance, even if they
do not have health insurance ard even
though they are not in a vehicle. The
auto insurance that covers pedestrians
ahd bicyclists in Florida may pay for
things health insurance may not, like
chiropractors and massage therapists.
When my son and I were hit riding in a
car in front of Sam's on Monroe in
1999 we had low PIP and uninsured
motorist coverage and a lousy insurance
company. The hit and run driver was
never found and we suffered big
financial, physical and time losses. Four
years later we were still being deposed by
lawyers because that auto insurance
company would not pay the doctors.
We did not sue anyone. My husband
upped our coverage and went with
Florida Farm Bureau. My son was hit
by a car while riding a bicycle on Velda
Dairy Road in May of 2006 and the hit
and run driver got away again. My son
had four surgeries. Our auto insurance
with Florida Farm Bureau paid the
maximum on our policy and it was
never necessary to contact a lawyer. If
you have no health insurance or a high
deductible on it, and you or your
children are hit by a car while walking or
riding a bike, PIP and uninsured
motorist insurance could be very
important. If our lawmakers do not act,
by October 1, there may be no State
requirement for proof of insurance to
register a vehicle in Florida. This may
increase the number of uninsured
drivers in Florida and once again the
burden to the taxpayers for medical bills
of uninsured motorists and their victims.

Anti-smoking

paternalism: A

cancer on

American

liberty

By Don Watkins
Across the country, state and local
governments are banning smoking on private
property, including bars, restaurants, and
office buildings. This is just the latest step in
the government's war on smoking--a coercive
campaign that includes massive taxes on
cigarettes, advertising bans, and'endless
multi-billion dollar lawsuits against tobacco
companies. This war is infecting America
with a political disease far worse than any
health risk caused by smoking; it is
destroying our freedom to make our own
judgments and choices. .
According to the anti-smoking movement,
restricting people's freedom to smoke is
justified by the necessity of combating the
"epidemic"' of smoking-related disease and
death. Cigarettes, we are told, kill hundreds
of thousands of helplessly addicted victims a
year, and expose countless millions to
unwanted and unhealthy secondhand smoke.
Smoking, the anti-smoking movement says,
in effect, is a plague, whose ravages can only
be combated through drastic government
action.
But smoking is not some infectious disease
that must be quarantined and destroyed by
the government, Smoking is a voluntary
activity that every individual is free to choose
to abstain from (including by avoiding
restaurants and other private establishments
that permit smoking). And, contrary to those
who regard any smoking as irrational on its
face, cigarettes are a potential value that each
individual must assess for himself. Of course,
smoking can be harmful--ii certain
quantities, over a certain period of time, it can
be habit forming and lead to disease or death.
But man\ indi iduaiL understandabh regard
t he riskiof shoinie js rmnimral it one
smokes relatively infrequently, and they see
smoking as offering definite value, such as
physicalpleasure.,
Are they right? Can it be a value to smoke
cigarettes--and if so, in what quantity? This is
the sort of judgment that properly belongs to
every individual, based on his assessment of
the evidence concerning smoking's benefits
and risks, and taking into account his
particular circumstances (age, family history,
profession, tastes, etc.). If others believe the
smoker is making a mistake, they are free to
try to persuade him of their viewpoint. But
they should not be free to dictate his decision
on whether-and to what extent to smoke, any
more than they should be able to dictate his
decision on whether and to what extent to
drink alcohol or play poker. The fact that
some individuals will smiroke themselves into
an early grave is no more justification for
banning smoking than that the existence of
alcoholics is grounds for prohibiting you
from enjoying a drink at dinner.
Implicit in te war on smoking, however, is
the view that.the government must dictate the
individual's decisions with regardto smoking,
because he is incapable of making them
rationally. To the extent the anti-smoking
movement succeeds in wielding the power of
government coercion to impose on
Americans its blanket opposition to smoking,
it is entrenching paternalism: the view that
individuals are incompetent to run their own
lives, and thus require a nanny-state to
control every aspect of those lives.
This state is well on its way: from trans-fat
bans to bicycle helmet laws to prohibitions on
gambling, the government is increasingly
abridging our freedom on the grounds that we
are not competent to make rational decisions
in these areas--just as it has long done by
patemalistically dictating how we plan for
retirement (Social Security) or what
medicines we may take (the FDA).
Indeed, one of the main arguments used to
bolster the anti-smoking agenda is the claim
that smokers impose "social costs" on non-
smokers, such as smoking-related medical
expenses--an argument that perversely uses
an injustice created by paternalism to support
its expansion. The only reason non-smokers
today are forced to foot the medical bills of
smokers is that our government has virtually
taken over the field of medicine, in order to
relieve us inept Americans of the freedom to
manage our own health care, and bear the
costs of our own choices.
But contrary to paternalism, we are not
congenitally irrational misfits. We are.
thinking beings for whom it is both possible
and necessary to rationally judge which
courses of action will serve our interests. The
consequences of ignoring this fact range from
denying us legitimate pleasures to literally
killing us: from the healthy 26-year-old
unable to enjoy a trans-fatty food, to the 75-
year-old man unable to take an unapproved,
experimental drug without which he will
certainly die.
By employing government coercion to
deprive us of the freedom to judge for
ourselves what we inhale or consume, the
anti-smoking movement has become an
enemy, not an ally, in the quest for health and
happiness.

Sheriff ready to take funding needs to governor


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

Gadsden County Sheriff
Morris Young is adamant about
the money he needs to run his
office and the jail. He says he
needs a minimum of $800,000,
and if he doesn't get it, he is pre-
pared to file an official com-


plaint with Gov. Charlie Crist.
He said he has been assured
that he will get the $667,000 he
needs to give deputies and cor-
rections officers raises, the
$42,000 needed to give support
staff, and get administrators a
2.5 percent pay raise. He feels
he will also get the $150,000
needed for the Information


Technology System.
But Young isn't taking any-
thing to the bank yet because
nothing is certain as commis-
sioners scramble to maintain
their own administration budget
that has soared to more than $2
million dollars in two years.
However, officers still might
be required to purchase their


own duty weapons.
"They have to come up with
the proper funding. If they don't
give me the money Wednesday
night, Thursday morning I'll be
in the Governor's Office. I have
no other choice but to go to the
Governor. I have 30 days after
the budget is passed and they
will have five days after that to


tell the Governor why they can't
fund my office. The next step
will be for me to file a lawsuit
against the Board of County
Commissioners," Young said.
He said he has had many
talks with Davin Suggs, the
county's budget director, but
nothing is certain until the vote
is taken.


Young said he has not and
will not entertain what he calls
people's request to influence
him to take political sides
among commissioners.
"I'm not getting into the mid-
dle of the Board of County
Commissioners' political
games. I'm not going to play
their games," Young said.

Domestic violence: The silent tragedy

"Domestic violence destroys

The two women who shared
their stories of abuse are the lucky
ones. The are out of abusive rela-
tionships and into a program that
offers counseling and support.
Writing their feeling is part of the
healing process. Since 1984 when
the U.S. Surgeon General declared
domestic violence as the nation's
number one health problem,
October was designated Domestic
Violence Awareness Month.
In the past two months in
Quincy, reports of domestic vio-
lence have gone down slightly.
That's not a good sign according to
Angela Heard, Victim's Advocate
with the Quincy Police
Department.
"I don't think the incidents of
domestic violence are going down
as much as they are not being
reported," she said. Also, Heard
said, the word has gotten out that
when someone calls on a domestic
violence incident, someone is
going to jaiL.
* .-. "We, have. adopted a no-non-
sense, attitude_..toward. domestic
violence," Heard said.
According to national statis-
tics, however, only about half of
the instances of domestic violence
are reported to law enforcement.
Kamell Jones, Gadsden County's
coordinator for the Refuge House
said the organization works hard
to inform women of their rights'
and encourages them to report the


crime to authorities.
"Often we find that women in
domestic violence situations will
not report it because they maybe
afraid, they don't feel it's really a
crime, or they are embarrassed.
Still, they are sometimes in life
threatening situations," Jones said.-
* Domestic violence affects all
aspects of society and the entire
community pays for it. Domestic

Surgeon General. Over $2.5 bil-
lion dollars are claimed yearly in
health benefits due to domestic,
violence. Medical costs from
domestic violence total $3-5 bil-
lion dollars annually. At least
another $100 million can be added
to the cost to businesses in lost
wages, sick lea e, noci-prod uct\ i-
ty and absenteeism.
Abused women comprise
approximately 2Q percent of
women who appear in hospital
emergency rooms. Jones said hos-
pital personnel has been trained to
look for certain things when vic-
tims come in for treatment.
Because women make up 95
percent of those who suffer.
domestic violence, they are likely


to be victimized again. A recent
Illinois study revealed some
sobering statistics based on data
collected from women seeking
shelter: 51 percent of reported that
abuse occurred at least once a
week;.another 25 percent said the
frequency wa at least once per
month. More than 60 percent were
hit with a fist or object andmore
than half had their ilves threat-
ened. Forty percent were kicked or
choked; 40 percent were abused
with .weapons and at least one i
fourth of the women aid the
abuse had been on-going for a
year or more.

For breast cancer survivor, early detection key


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

October is Breast Cancer
Awareness Month. Roxanne
Johnson, a breast cancer sur-
vivor knows first hand that early
examinations can save your life.
Last year, Johnson, who is 40-
years-old with no history of
breast cancer in the family, went
for her first mammogram..
"I knew something might be
wrong when the young woman
told me not to put my clothes
back on, just yet," she said. The
mammogram revealed what she
called microscopic little squig-
glies. They turned out to be can-
cerous and Roxanne had sur-
.gery. Today, she is healthy and
vibrant with no sign of the dis-
ease. She's back at work and is
enjoying her life.
While Johnson did not detect
any lumps or unusual changes in
her breast during the recom-
mended monthly self examina-
tion, she is thankful that she
went for the mammogram.
MEETING NOTICE
The Gadsden County Planning
Commission will hold their
tneeting on Thursday,
october 11, 2007 in the
Commission room at 6:00p.m.
The proposed agenda will

Today she is viligant about self
examinations. "They taught me
how to do the examination on
my remaining breast and I know
every lump on my .body," she
said, maintaining her sense of
humor.
Just recently, she said, one of
her friends found a lump
through self examination. "She
noticed the lump in the valley of
her breast and went to the doctor
right away," Johnson said. Her
friend is now a breast cancer
survivor too.
There are many good reasons
for doing a breast self-examina-
tion each month. One reason,
according to the American
Cancer Society, is that a self
examination could save your
breast and your life. Most breast
lumps are found .by women
themselves. Most lumps in the
breast are not cancer, but it is
better to be safe and sure.
Breast examinations are easy
to do and the more you do it the
better you get at it. Once a
woman gets to know how her
breasts normally feel, they will
quickly be able to feel any

change and early detection is the
key to successful treatment and
cure.
The best time to do a breast
examination is right after your
period, when breast are not ten-
der or swollen. For women who
do not have a regular period or
who skip a month, the self
examination is best performed
on the same day of each month.
Here are the steps to a breast
self examination:
*Lie down and put a pillow
under the right shoulder. Place
the right arm behind your head.
*Use the finger pads of the
three middle fingers on the left
hand to feel for lumps or thick-
ening. The finger pads are in the
top third of each finger.
*Press firmly enough to
know how the breast feels. If
you are not sure how hard to
press, ask your health care
provider. Or try to copy the way
your health care provider uses
the finger pad during the breast
examination. Learn what your
breast feels like most, of the
time. A firm ridge in the lower
curve of each breast is normal.

*Move around the breast in a
set way. You may choose either
a circle, the up and down line or
the wedge. Be sure to do it the
same way everytime. It will help
you to make sure you've gone
over the entire breast area, and
to remember how your breast
feels.
*Now examine your left
breast using right hand finger
pads.
*If you find any changes, see
your doctor right away.
For added protection women
should check their breast while
standing in front of a mirror
right after you do your breast
self exam each month. See if
there are any changes in the way
your breast look: dimpling of
the skin, changes in the nipple,
or readiness or swelling.
Women might also want to
do a breast self-exam while in
the shower. Your soapy hands
will glide over the wet skin
making it easy to check how
your breast feels.
"I want women to know that
you don't have to die. The key is
early detection," Johnson said.

Quincy Music Theatre set to open with 'Fiddler'


By LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor

Quincy Music Theater reno-
vations recently took a retro
turn.
Theater board members
decided to give the marquee a
1950s glow, adding red neon to


announce upcoming perform-
ances.
"We decided to restore the
marquee to its original state as it
was in 1949," QMT managing
director Kevin. Goddson said.
"(Local philanthropist) Julia
Woodward left a trust fund for
the theater, and we've used


$10,000 of that for the mar-
quee."
The theater kicks off its 25th
season Oct. 5 with the much-
loved musical "Fiddler on the
Roof."
But before the show,
Goodson will give Woodward
an award from a national com-
munity theater association.
"This is a big deal. not
many people get this," Goodson
said. "I'm excited she's such a
special lady. I sat there and
wrote the .nomination ,and
thought, 'There is no way she's
not going to win.'"'
American Association of
Community Theaters past presi-
dent Mary Britt will be on hand
to present the honor,. a Spotlight
Award for Significant
Contribution to Local
Community Theater.
AACT Executive Director
Julie Angelo said members of
the Spotlight Award selection
committee were wowed by
Woodward's nomination.
"One of the members of the


committee said they wished
every community theater-had a
Julia Woodward," Angelo said.
"She has certainly made a great
contribution to her local the-
ater."
And after the ceremony, on
with the show. A cast of 37 rep-
resenting a broad range of the
best of Leon and Gadsden
County's acting community will
tell the tale of Tevye, a Jewish
dairy farmer during turn of the
century in revolutionary Russia.
Tevye struggles to balance tra-
dition with modern culture and
the changing times while simul-
taneously dealing with his wife
and'five daughters. Not only is
Fiddler on the Roof filled with
familiar tunes like "Sunrise,
Sunset," "Tradition" and
"Matchmaker, Matchmaker," it
is a show full of memorable
moments including a high ener-
gy Russian dance in "To Life"
and the famous "Wedding
Dance" during which dancers
balance real bottles on their
heads.

Gadsden's first matron, 'Miss Lillie Mae' dies at 91


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

Back in the day, before cor-
rections officers, the men who
worked in jails were called jail-
ers and the women were referred
to as matrons.
Gadsden County's first
matron, Lillie Mae McNeil,.
passed away Tuesday afternoon
at her home. She was 91-years
old. "She passed in her sleep,"
said her daughter Claretha
McNeil White.'

"Miss Lillie Mae", McNeil
began working at the Gadsden
County Jail when it was a two-
story brick building at the corner
of Adams and Crawford Streets.
She came to work when Robert
Martin, who died in the early
1970s, was sheriff. Before she
retired she worked under Martin
and W.A. Woodham.
While most of the officers
who worked with McNeil have
died, officers who were at the
beginning of. their careers
remember her well.. Major
'David Ganious, of the Gadsden


County Sheriffs Office, is
McNeil's grandson. He credits
her with his staying in law
enforcement.
"She took care of me. She
talked to me and she gave me
the benefit of her wisdom, she
took me under her wings,"
Ganious said. McNeil, he said,
nurtured officers, but she was
also tough.
"The matrons weren't afraid
of anything. When we brought
people in they were the first
people arrestees saw when they
got to jail. They handled them


Mrs; Lillie Mae McNeil


and some of those people were a
handfull" Gainous said. Her


softer side also manifested itself
through her cooking. In the old
jail, there was a kitchen and
McNeil cooked for many of the
officers.
"She'd cook fried chicken,
greens, good food and she
would call us in off the road to
come and eat," Gainous said.
Retired deputy James Kenon
also remerhbers McNeil fondly
because she took him under her
wings too.
"She was a quiet, easy to get
along with and she always
talked to me. Everyday, when I


came to work, she gave me a
hug. She was the same every-
time you saw her and I worked
with her at least 10 years. She
had the most beautiful smile. I,
loved her like a mother," Kenon
said.
Along the way, McNeil:
earned many awards and certifi-!
cates for her work at the jail.
Services for McNeil will be:
held Saturday, Oct. 6, at 11 a.m:.
at Arnett Chapel AME Church,.
209 South Duval Street in,
Quincy. Williams Funeral Hom-e
is in charge of arrangements.

SIt was no doubt upset special week
in college football last week. With
five of the topten teams hitting the
skids:it was a week to remember.
Thapkfully I avoided an upset.
)"ot that I did that great picking, hit-
tiw nlly'5 of 10. That was better than
Opponent Trey Hussey's 4 of 10
though, and my record was upped to 4-
1 this year.


Getting to 5-1 may be another mat-
ter as I take on Wewahitchka's Jerry
Gaskin, the Executive Vice President
of Vision Bank, in that Gulf County
town.
Jerry's family bought the
Wewahitchka State Bank back in the
1930's and owned and operated it until
2002 when they sold it to Bank Trust.
which a couple of years later sold it to


Vision.
Jerry was born in Gainesville,
where his dad was in Law School. He
was raised in Wewa, his family's
home. A 1968 graduate of
Wewahitchka High School, Jerry
played football and baseball during his
high school years. After high school
he attended Chipola,and FSU where
he got a Finance Degree.
He went to work in the family
owned Wewa bank 'and later served as
President of the institution before the
sell out to Bank Trust. He was the
Chairmari and Chief Executive Officer
of that firm before they sold to Vision,
where he holds his present position.
Jerry married a local lass, Sharon
Tillman, and they have two daughters,
Crystal. who has a Finance Degree
from West Florida and Jade who
attends UF and works for the
Department of Corrections.
Jerry suffered a tough loss
September 14 when his dad. David
Carl, passed away. They both, seldom,
if ever, missed Wewahitchka High
sporting events. The Gaskin's have
shown unmeasured support for the


school and community.
Jerry is one of my favorite people to
run into. He and Sharon are great fans
and supporters of high school sports as
was his dad who I know he misses.
Let's see how one of Wewa's
favorite sons picks against me this
week.....
LSU over FLORIDA-Tigers are the
better team all around.
SOUTH CAROLINA over KEN-
TUCKY-Spiurier will have something.
for the Wildcats.
CLEMSON over VIRGINIA
TECH-Tigers on the rebound.
FSU over N.C. STATE-A tough.
defense and a new quarterback.
GEORGIA over TENNESSEE-
Don't ask why.
FAMU over WINSTON -SALEM
STATE-Just a quess.
GEORGIA TECH over MARY-
LAND-After the big win over
Clemson.
TEXAS over OKLAHOMA-The
game is in the state of Texas.
KANSAS STATE over KANSAS-
Wildcats ready for another big win.
NEBRASKA over MISSOURIL


Huskers a stronger team.
I look to be stronger than Jerry with
these picks.....
LSU over FLORIDA-Gators
youngsters and their coach may age a
bit this next month.
SOUTH CAROLINA over KEN-
TUCKY-The game is at the 'ole ball
coach' house.
CLEMSON: over VIRGINIA
TECH-Tech still has no offense.
FSU over N.C. STATE-Noles sea-
son is looking.up.
GEORGIA over TENNESSEE -
Vols having trouble this year.
FAMU over WINSTON-SALEM
STATE-So is FAMU's.
MARYLAND over GEORGIA
TECH-Terps also had a big win last
week.
OKLAHOMA over TEXAS-Game
-lost some luster last week.
KANSAS STATE over KANSAS-
K-State at home,
MISSOURI over NEBRASKA-
Tigers stay unbeaten..
And I hope to be unbeaten this
Week as. Jerry and I differ THREE
times.

'Bostick then threw a 38-yard

ting it at 20-17.


Later in the quarter the
Panthers got a drive going into
Shark, territory.

helping. St. Joe hold. on to the .
district win.
Byrd had a big night rushing
for 121 yards. Bostick led the


Panther offense with 141 pass-
ing yards on a 7 of 11 night.

Madison takes advantage of Jaguar misciuesin 47-20 win
IC Y '," -. ,.


With 26 seconds left in the
first half Madison held a 20-7
lead over East Gadsden in
Friday nights football game at
Jaugar Field. The Cowboys had
the ball inside the Jaugar 10 and
seemed ready to take a three
touchdown lead.
That's when Montez Fryson
stepped in to intercept a pass
and scoot 95-yards for a touch-
down putting the home team


right back in the contest at 20-13
into the half. And they stayed in
the game until the fourth quarter
when kicking game mistakes
and a tough Madison running
game finally did them in 47-20.
Madison wound up rushing
for over 300 yards in the game
with Corry Akins running for
155 and Chris Thompson rush-
ing for 110. Thompson scored
three times in the game that saw


East Gadsden take an early 7-0 making it 26-13 before a 65-


lead on a 27-yard Donterrious
Gee fumble return and a Jose.
Sanchez extra point kick.
The 7-0 lead held through the
first quarter.. That's when the
Cowboys got rolling and,scored
three straight times with Chestin
Harden, Thompson, and.Jabaris
Thronton getting touchdowns..
Thompson scored his second
touchdown early in quarter three


yard scamper by Darius Davis,
who rushed for 127 yards in the
game, led to a 5-yard Fryson
scoring run. Another Sanchez
kick put it at 26-20.
Early in the fourth quarter an
8-yard Thompson run led to a
34-20 Madison lead and then
things fell apart for the Jaguars,
Madison recovered a fumble on
the kick-off and scored on a


halfback pass from Dontarius
Huggins to Jordan Johnsonr
making it 40-20. East Gadsden'
again fumbled the kick-off
allowing another Madison short
field and the Cowboys wrapped
up the scoring with a 9-yard td
run by Johnsori.
"We played with alot of effort
and competitiveness." East
Gadsden head coach Scott
Anderson commented. "I was


proud about that but disappoint-
ed in our kicking game."
Anderson added. "We knew
Madison was tough when we
scheduled them, but we want to
play teams with intensity and
learn to get to that level."
East Gadsden's record is 2-3.
The Jaguars will play their first
District .2-3A game at Jaguar
Field Friday night when they
host Bay High at 7:30 pm.

interception return for a touchdown kept
the Jaguars in the.game with tough
Madison County. The score was 26-20

This week: East Gadsden (2-3) will
host Bay High (0-4) in a District 2-3A
game, the Jaguars first district game this
year.
Last year; Bay broke open a close
game in the second half and won 31-20.
What to look for: Bay's 0-4 mark is
very deceiving. Their losses have been
against Rutherford, Mosley, Pensacola
High, and Godby all potential play-off
teams. Look for Bay to run the ball and
try to keep control of the game. East
Gadsden has to avoid kicking game mis-
takes and get the ball in the hands of
their play makers.

Last week: The Panthers fell behind
20-7 at the half before rallying to a 20-

Bobcats hang on for win


Johnson rushes for 366 yards in Homecoming thriller


Munroe rushed for 558 yards
Friday night including 366 from
halfback Dontavius Johnson. The
only problem was Maclay passed
for about that many yards and it
took a missed field goal by
Maclay to allow the Bobcats to
hang on to a 46-45 homecoming
victory.


Johnson scored 4 touchdowns
with his yardage. Chris
McDonald added 99 yards and a
touchdown, and Cody Watson ran
for 86 yards and a TD and also
passed to Clay Kramm for a 20-
yard scoring pitch.
"It was a barn burner." Said
Munroe coach Adam Reep. "We


couldn't stop their passing and
they couldn't stop our running."
"The game gave me gray hairs
and almost a heart attack, but I
guess will power won it."
Munroe's record is 2-3 with the
win. The Bobcats will host
Graceville in a district game
Friday at Corry Field at 7:30 pm.

The Lady Cats picked up two
key district wins over a fairly

last Thursday. Match one found
the team struggling but they pulled
out a 15-11 fifth game win. Jill
Purvis led the offense with seven

In match two, Purivs again led

McKinnon with five. Spenser
Morris added four kills and four

lied 19 assists. Coach Elliot Blake,
obviously displeased with his
team's performance, said this
"Our doubleheader against Laurel
Hill had to be one of the worse
days I have ever seen Munroe
play. In the first match, we came
out extremely flat with.no emotion
and no real fire to play. If any-


thing, we were lucky to win that
match when you consider we
made21 service errors. As for the
second match, Munroe did come
out looking more energized on the
court, but there were still too many
errors made overall. The girls
know they did not play well and if
we are going to make a run deep
into the playoffs, they know that
they are going to have to step up
their level of intensity each time
they take to the court." The team
is 12-4 overall and have won 10
straight matches without.a loss.

thriller 30-29 in Jay.
What to look for: It should be another competitive
District 1-A game. Both Jay and West Gadsden won close
games against Sneads. The Panthers need to get their run-
ning game going with Chris Williams and Leroy Smith.
Jay has a good ball control game and the Royals can eat up
a clock if West Gadsden doesn't have some ball control of
their own..
MUNROE
Last week: Munroe held on to a 46-45 win over Maclay
after leading 22-0 in the first quarter. Dontavius Johnson
rushed for 366 yards and 4 touchdowns in the contest.
This week: The Bobcats (2-3) host Graceville in a
District 1-1B contest at Corry Field at 7:30 pm.
Last year: The teams did not meet.
What to look for: Munroe had some nice offensive
numbers against Maclay last week. Graceville will be a dif-
ferent challenge, the Tigers, are tough on defense. Senior
running back.J.J. Laster and senior quarterback Lee
Steverson are capable of putting up big offensive numbers
for Graceville.

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.

By LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor

Irene Stuart had long wanted
to take her belief in the healing
powers of faith to Peru.
A member of Liberty Outreach
Center in Quincy, a
Pentecostal, multicultural
church, she sat with the rest of
the congregation one Sunday
as the pastor talked about serv-
ing God by stepping outside.
individual comfort zones.
Immediately, she thought again
about going to Peru.
"The pastor was preaching
about a box he said God
wants us to step out of the
box," she recalls. "But I
thought, I'm 77 years old, I
have no money. The next week
I got an email from Benny
Hinn's ministry saying,
'Someone in Lima, Peru is
praying for you.'"
She decided to go.
Stuart had joined Yours Lord,
Inc., a Cairo-based healing
ministry, several months
before and became increasing-
ly interested in traveling with
members of the group on a
healing mission.
The Cairo group meets every
Monday.
"The Lord Jesus Christ heals -
he just uses us. That's the
instrument he uses," Stuart
said. "We pray for every sick-


ness. Jesus is the healer there
isn't anything he can't do."
Led by pastors Barry and
Gloria Taylor, the group decid-
ed last year to travel to Lima
and hold several healing serv-
ices throughout the Lima
province. Encouraged by
friends and Lima missionaries
Kelby and Linda Carter of
Thomasville, the couple
planned a trip.
Stuart was on that plane, along
with other members of the
group who spent a week hold-
ing healing services through-
out the Lima area.
A seven-member healing team
returned this year, ministering
in Lima Sept. 12-19.
Stuart said things seemed to
fall into place once she decid-
ed to go her church, Liberty
Outreach, sponsored her trip
and Christown founders Bob
and Laura Wells donated
much-needed clothing and toys
for impoverished Lima fami-
lies.
It was an experience Stuart
says she will never forget.
"They can't afford to go to
doctors," she says of the Lima
residents she and her team
ministered to. "So many lower
backs and upper backs were
healed. One man came in in a
wheelchair and pushed it out.
Migraines, diabetes they are
healed. All they have to do is


believe."
Stuart and her husband, Bill,
moved to Quincy from Ocala
20 years ago. She worked for
the state Department of
Highway Safety and Motor
Vehicles in the Division of
Mobile Homes and RV
Construction before retiring 12
years ago, a year after her hus-
band passed away.
She knows some doubt the
team's success stories; she
answers those who are dubious
with two verses of scripture.
In the first, John 14:12, Jesus
said, "Most assuredly, I say to
you, he who believes in Me,
the works that I do he will do
also; and greater works than
these he will do, because I go
to my Father."
The second scripture, Luke
9:1-2, denotes another of
Jesus' teachings: "Then he
called His 12 disciples togeth-
er and gave them power and
authority over all demons, and
to cure diseases. He sent them
to preach the kingdom of God
and to heal the sick."
Her explanation of the process
is fairly simple.
"I just fill them with love. I
give them all my love," she
said. "Some are healed slowly,
over time, and some are healed
quickly. It's just a miracle -
it's beautiful. You just have to
have the faith and believe, and


he'll do it." not a pleasure trip it'll break
The healing team has been your heart. There's so much
invited to hold more healing poverty. Some people say I am
sessions in Lima in May. too old to do this, but no. If
Stuart says she won't miss that God calls me to go I will go.
opportunity. i One is never too old to answer
"I will be going, God provid- God's call. God does not look
ing the conveniences for me, at your age, he looks at your
God willing," she said. "It's, heart."

DEP implements protections for Panhandle environment


Law creating Northwest Florida environmental program to
reduce flooding, safeguard waterways and habitat now in effect


TALLAHASSEE The Florida
Department of Environmental
Protection (DEP) on Oct. 1
marked the implementation of
expanded protection for water
resources in the Florida
Panhandle. The Florida
Legislature passed House Bill
7163 in 2006, creating an
Environmental Resource
Permitting (ERP). program in
Northwest Florida for the first
time. DEP has worked with area
stakeholders since that time to put
effective .rules and practices for
the ERP program in place.
"This is an historic moment for
the people, the environment and
the economy of Northwest
Florida," said DEP Secretary
Michael W. Sole. "Including the
region in the statewide


Environmental Resource
Permitting program will improve
stormwater management and
flood control and better protect
some of the most pristine rivers;
estuaries aid streams in the state."
Today inaugurates the first phase
of the program, updating
stormwater rules and practices to
protect water quality and reduce
flooding. Phase Two, to be imple-
mented after Jan. 1, 2008, will
enhance protection for wetlands
connected to other surface waters
as well as isolated wetlands not
previously protected by state law
in Northwest Florida. This, pro-
gram is being implemented joint-
ly by DEP and the Northwest
Florida Water Management
District.
The ERP 'program regulates


dredging of navigation channels,
filling wetlands, other urban and
residential development activities,
highway construction, and instal-
lation of docks and seawalls.
Phase One of this program
requires stormwater management
practices to reduce off-site,flood-
ing and protect water quality. The
program includes a strong mitiga-
tion component to offset'unavoid-
able impacts to water resources
and related habitat. Rule develop-
ment for Phase Two wetland reg-
ulations is underway and a public
workshop is anticipated before the


end of the year.
In addition to Florida's environ-
mental permitting programs, the
State is conserving wetlands and
wildlife habitat by acquiring envi-
ronmentally sensitive land. More
than 2 million acres of natural
land -- including 191,000 acres in
the Panhandle -- have been placed
in public ownership through
Florida Forever and its predeces-
sor program, Preservation 2000.
Established by the Florida
Legislature, the 10-year, $3 bil-
lion Florida Forever program is
the largest land buying initiative
in the nation.

A Special Tlhiak You To Al 0
FO


Christopher Columbus, the son of
a wool merchant and weaver, was
born in Genoa, Italy. At the young
age of 14, he set sail for the first
time. On one of his voyages in 1470,
there was a shipwreck off of the
Coast of Portugal. He was able to
swim to 'he shore, and he made that
country his home.
,j .m In 1484, Columbus moved to
Spain. where King Ferdinand and
I Queen Isabella, known as the Crown
"_' of Castile, became interested in his
-- very adventuresome voyage ideas.
SOn August 2,1492, Columbus set
sail in search of the East Indies. The voyage was
financed by the King and Queen. Christopher
Columbus and a 90-man crew traveled aboard
three ships on the trip to the New World The
ships were named The Nina, The'Pinta, and the
largest ship which Columbus commanded, The
Santa Maria. Columbus never actually arrived on
the mainland of the Americas, which he believed
to be the indies, until his third voyage to the new
world On Christmas Day of 1492, the Santa
Maria sank off of the coast of Hispaniola On
January 16, 1493. Columbus set sail back for
Spain aboard the Nina, anving there on March 4
of the same year His second voyage departed';
for the New World in September of 1493 with 17
ships. The ships cared people and supplies to
begin colonization. Columbus would sail back
and forth between the New and Old Worlds two
more times before his death in Valladolid. Spain,
on May 20, 1506. He was 55 years old
Columbus Day is celebrated in honor of the
voyages that Columbus made. Though he was
not the first person to discover the Americas, he
is recognized as one of the most important con-
tributors to colonization He was the first Euro-
pean successful in efforts to colonize the New
World He explored parts of the Caribbean and
discovered the mainland of South America on
his third voyage He never actually found North
America, or a passage to China, which he hoped
to find. This was because what he believed to be
the Indies was actually South Amenca

Quincy airman promoted 1riefs


Quincy native Maurious
McCall recently earned a
promotion to staff sergeant in the
United States Air Force.
According to Lt. Col. Robert
Rocco, McCall's selection for
promotion was based on a
number of factors, "most
notably, his proven skills and
abilities necessary to lead
,airmen. As our nation continues
to face great challenges, we need
exceptional leaders to ensure
mission success. With his latest
promotion, our Air Force has
validated that he is one of those
exceptional leaders. I've served
as Maurious' commander since


his arrival here at Ramstein Air
Base. In my 20-plus years as an
Air Force officer, I've not seen a
more professional, competent or
dedicated professional. He does
everything exceptionally well
and represents the finest
qualities of an American
airman."
McCall, the son of Ruthie
Robinson-Mike and Dexter
McCall of Quincy, graduated
from James A. Shanks High
School in 2002 and joined the
U.S. Air Force in December,
2003. His grandparents are Jeff
and Catherine Robinson of
Quincy.,


Fire dept. to hold open house


In an effort to battle home fires
before they start in Quincy, the
fire department is taking a lead
role in NFPA'S Fire Prevention
Week October 7-13, 2007. By
hosting an Open House that will
entertain and educate the public,
the fire department hopes to raise
awareness of key fire safety
issues, helping attendees prevent
fires and fire injures, especially at
home. "Many people don't
realize they are at greater danger
from fire at home than anywhere
else," says Chief Howard Smith.
Fortunately, there are many
things residents can do to turn
that around and make their home
safer. Fire Prevention Week is the
time we reach out to the
community one-on-one, teaching


people of every age how to
prevent fires. This year our theme
is, "Practice Your Escape Plan."
According to Chief Howard-
Smith, the fire department has
lined up the following Fire
Prevention Week activity for
residents: Open House at the
Quincy Fire Department-Friday,
October 12, from 4 to 7 p.m. Fire
Prevention Week has been
sponsored by the National Fire
Protection Association (NFPA)
for 84 years and is proclaimed by
the President of the United States
each year. The longest running
safety commemoration is the
premier fire safety program of the
fire departments in the U.S. and
Canada. NFPA selected the 2007
Fire Prevention Week theme in


order to highlight a growing
home fire concern. The theme,
"Practice Your Escape Plan," is a
memorable and effective safety
message. In addition to practicing
your escape plan, Quincy
residents are urged to ensure
smoke detectors are installed on
every level of your home and
kept working with monthly
testing and annual. battery
replacement. All smoke alarms
should be replaced with a new
unit after 10 years. Each member
of the household needs to know
the fire escape plan, and all
should practice it twice a year.
We look forward to seeing you on
October 12, from 4-7 pm, at the
Quincy Fire Department.

B 8 The Gadsden County Times October 4, 2007


Schools get $129.3 million for academic performance


Three Gadsden County schools recognized


TALLAHASSEE -. Education
Commissioner Jeanipe
Blomberg Sept. 28 announced
$129.3 million in funding to
1,612 Florida schools. in
recognition of theii academic
achievement and improvement
during the 2006-2007 school
year.
Under the state's School
Recognition Program, schools
that achieve an "A" based on the
school grading criteria or


improve at least one grade from
the previous year are awarded
$100 per student. Since the
program began in 1999, Florida
has awarded more than $982
million in school recognition
funding.
Gadsden County schools
received $95,608 in academic
achievement funding; $12,896
Sfor Gadsden Elementary Magnet
School, $31,937 for St. Johns,
Elementary School and $50,775


for Stewart Elementary School.
"It is a pleasure to honor these
schools for the superior
academic performance and
improvement shown by their
students last year," said
Commissioner Blomberg.
"Through their
accomplishments, we can clearly
see that hard work, inspirational
teaching and a commitment to
student .achievement are true
catalysts for success."


Recognition funds- are
allocated, based on a joint
decision by the school's staff
and school advisory council.
These funds can be used by a
school for non-recurring faculty
bonuses, educational equipment,
new technology or hiring
temporary personnel to assist in
maintaining and improving
student performance.
The Florida School
Recognition Program has had a
positive effect on schools
maintaining and improving
grades..


In 2007, a total of 1,137
schools maintained an "A," 38
new schools earned an "A," 305
schools improved to an "A" and
118 schools improved to a grade
other than an "A."
In addition, a new provision
introduced in law last year
enables K-3 "feeder schools"
(schools that do not earn a
school grade and serve any
combination of. students in
kindergarten through third
grade) to receive school
recognition funding based on the
performance of the school that


receives at least 60 percent of
the K-3 school's promoted third
graders. Fourteen "feeder
schools" earned school
recognition funding this year.
For Florida's struggling
schools, the Assistance Plus
program provides funding,
resources and support to address
areas of weakness..
Additionally, failing schools
receive school improvement
facilitators, reading coaches,
technical assistance and
assessments to monitor student
progress.


Some helpful tips for dealing with the Fall allergy season


Fall is here and along with
beautiful foliage and pumpkin
picking and hot apple cider, for
a lot of Americans, that means
the start of allergy season.
Ragweed, mold, and other
allergens accompany the start of
fall, which means dry and itchy
eyes for those who suffer from
allergies.
Eye drops might seem like an
obvious solution, but instead of
solving the problem, they just


cover up symptoms and may
cause other side effects that can
be damaging to your eyes.
Ever notice that when ,you
leave the warmth of your house
to go out into the crisp, cool
morning, your eyes start to tear?
It's no coincidence'.
The cold temperature and
wind create a condition of'
dryness that causes your eyes to
react.
Dr. Robert Latkany, author of


"The Dry Eye Remedy"
(Hatherleigh Press) suggests
five simple things you can do
to be more comfortable this fall
season:
1) IMITATE JACKIE 0:
Jackie was on to something with
those stylish shades. Whether
you suffer, from dry .eye
allergies or not, this is always a
MUST to protect your eyes.
2) CREATE YOUR OWN
LITTLE TROPICAL ISLAND:


Keep a' humidifier next to your
bed at night and if possible near
your desk at the office.
Try to position yourself away
from air currents, whether air
conditioning or heat, with your
back to the flow of the air.
3) TAKE A BREAK: When
traveling in a plane, car, or
train, relax your eyes every
once in a while. Take a break
from reading, watching a movie
and any other activity that 'puts


a strain on your vision.
4) STAY HYDRATED: Six to
eight glasses of water a day
helps wash away toxins and
promote healthy vision.
5) DON'T WORRY, BE
HAPPY: Spend time with
friends and family. There is
evidence that social interactiofi,
alongside diet and exercise,
lowers stress and inflammation.
Inflammation reduces the
quality of the tear film, clogging


the glands. Smiling also
decreases the ocular surface
area, reducing dry eye
symptoms.
Untreated, dry eye syndrome
gets progressively worse, so
treating your symptoms now is
crucial for maintaining healthy
vision and preventing aging
well before your time.
If you think you may have dry
eyes, consult with your eye
doctor.

Reading is Fundamental at EGHS


Students in Mrs. Range's
Read 180 classroom.are
engaged in three different ses-
sions per period. Students stay
in each session for 14 minutes,
which include an independent
reading session, a computer
session and a small group ses-
sion with the instructor.
Students then have 8 minutes
for class reflections at the end
of each period. On the day the
class was visited, the students
were engaged in silent reading
and story mapping at one
table, vocabulary mapping at
a second table, and defining
words using context clues at
the final table. The students
enjqy the process of changing
from one activity to another,
and they find that they are
remembering more informa-
tion. Reading really is
FUNdamental in READ 180!
