officials, discuss.

recycling woes

By LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor
Havana Town Council members and county
officials clashed Tuesday o.er the county's
decision to stop providing curbside recycling
service.
During the regular Town Council meeting,
Council member Olive Collins called the
decision a disgrace.
"I think it's a disgrace that Gadsden County
will be known as the only county. not
providing recycling to its citizens," she said.
"We're in the 21st century ... and now
Gadsden County is taking a step back."
Mayor T. J. Davis provided a letter from the
state Department of Environmental Protection
to County Solid Waste and Recycling Director
Anthony Powell telling him DEP wants to
"make sure you are aware of the recycling
requirements enacted by the Florida
Legislature as well as the ramifications of not

Tomato getting out of business


By LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor
The president of the company that owns
North Florida Tomatoes confirmed Tuesday
that he is getting out of the tomato business.
Jay Taylor, president of Palmetto-based
Taylor & Fulton Farms, said he and his
brother, John, are ready to change direction.


The company runs four tomato production
sites, one in Palmetto, one in Immokalee,
one in Mappsville, Va., and one in Gadsden
County just outside Quincy city limits.
"My brother and I have been blessed by a
long and fruitful career working side by
side and we have grown our business from

Former school


chief laid to rest

Friends and family gather to say
goodbye to Dr. Harold Henderson


By LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor
Friends and family .,of former
Gadsden County Schools
Superintendent Harold Henderson
gathered Oct. 25 to celebrate his life.
Friends of Henderson, who died
QCt,. 18 of brain cancer, described him
as a detored famgy tnan, educator
and musician.
"When we heard of the passing of
Dr. Harold Henderson, I know of no
one who was not deeply touched,"
said Robert Bryant, who held the post
of Gadsden County Schools
superintendent prior to Henderson's
1992 election. "It's not his death I
would, speak of but his life. He filled
his years with life ... Harold
Henderson met every situation with
concern, energy, empathy and
attitude, and when he did, he tackled
every challenge with, a vitality that
inspired you to know he was not
going to let go."
A host of dignitaries paid tribute to
Henderson during the Oct. 25 funeral
service at Thomasville Road Baptist
Church in Tallahassee, including
musical tribute from members of two
groups he organized, The Choralettes
and the Vocalaires.
Current Gadsden County Schools
Superintendent Reginald James gave
Henderson's family a plaque
inscribed with a School Board
resolution honoring Henderson, and
Henderson's first cousin, Bobby-
Davis, talked about growing up next
door to the man he said was more like
a brother than a cousin.
"We were brothers to each other,"


he said. "Everywhere I'd go, he'd
drag behind me. I loved him very,
very much. He was curious I could
see the making of something big
there."
Joseph Alexander. a long-time
friend of Henderson's, urged those
gathered last week
to focus -on the
years between the
dates Henderson
was born, Dec. 27,
1945, and died,
Oct. 18, 2007,
rather than those
two dates as
delineating
Henderson markers.
"In 'between
those two dates is a dash ... it's the
dash we come here to celebrate,"
Alexander said. "It's the dash that
matters to us. He was concerned
about making things better for the
folks in his community. He always
bragged on having the best wife God
could have given any man to have. He
dedicated his life to improving the life
of those less fortunate.
"He made a number of
accomplishments, too many to list
here, but he still had the common
touch. He never forgot God's blessing
on him was to be used to improve the
lives of others ... based on that dash,
we can assure that he heard the voice
of God 'say, 'Well done. Welcome
home."'
Pastor Jim Niells described his,
friendship with Henderson and the
love of music the two shared. Both

Love turns sour for domestic abuse survivor


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
Wilbumr Lincoln Hill was young
and pretty when she met the man
she thought; was the man of her
dreams. She described him as "sexy,
handsome, tall, dark, hardworking,
multi-talented, and artistic," In short,
she said, he was a wonderful person.
The couple dated for a year before
they walked down the aisle to begin
their lives together. But about six
months into the marriage she


noticed little disturbing things about
the man she married. Something,
she said, wasn't quite right.
"He started to stalk me. I caught
him one day watching me as I went
to the mailbox: I would notice him
watching every move I made. He
told me not to have anyone in the
home when he wasn't there. He
didn't want me to associate with my
dear friends or family," she said.
Deeply religious and devoted to
her church, Barkley's husband tried
to keep her away from worship. He


even accused her of having an affair
with the minister. One night he
whipped her for attempting to go to
Bible study.
"He would do things like not gas
up the car so I couldn't go to church
or he would stop me as I walked out
of the door and order me to go and
clean the refrigerator, things like
that," she said.
When he couldn't stop her church
activity he began taunting her with
hurtful words such as "you're ugly"
and "you're too fat" and "no one


wants you" and "you're not worth a
dime." As the years passed Barkley
said the verbal abuse continued and
things got worse.
"Then, the beatings started. At first
it was punching, yelling, backhand
slaps that grew into beatings. After I
returned from Christian meetings he
often kicked me of bed. He even
said two of our four children were
not his but were fathered by the
minister. One day, he tore a brand

made the decision to
leave her abusive
marriage for the
sake of her children.

new dress off my body to
prevent me from leaving the
house," she said.
Barkley said she stayed with her
abuser because she loved him.
Like a textbook abuser, her
husband would often shower her
with lovely words and gifts after
an attack.
"After he hit me he would rub
my face and say 'look what you
made me do' and then he would
get the medication to ease the
pain," she said.
Barkley stayed in the
relationship for 11 years because,
she said, she loved him.
On several occasions she
summoned the nerve to call law
enforcement and he was arrested
and jailed for domestic violence.
But it was her children, whom
she loved more than her husband,
who gave her the courage to
leave.
"I grew up in a loving family.
There was never any violence.
My parents loved each other
dearly and they loved us. I found
out later that he grew up a home
where his father abused his
mother. I wasn't going to allow
my children to grow up in that
situation," she said.


Barkley divorced her husband
and for several years he tried to
convince her to return to him.
There were times, she admits,
that she was tempted to go back.
"I had to stay away from him
for the sake of my children. I am
happy to say that they are all
well-adjusted young people. They
are wonderful human beings, I
don't believe I could say that if I
had stayed in that relationship,"
she said.
In the past two years, Barkley
said, her former husband called
her and apologized for the actions
he took against her during their
marriage. Now on his fourth
marriage, she said, she wishes
him life, peace, love and
happiness.
"I have no hate for him, in spite
of what he did to me," Barkley
said.
Her advice to women who find
themselves in .an abusive
relationship is to tell someone.
"Tell, tell, tell. I didn't tell
anyone because I thought no one
would believe. Outside the home
my husband was charming,
loving and attentive. I wish I had
just told someone, then I would
have known there was help out


there and that my family and
friends would have supported
me," she said.
Michelle Mabry, from the
Attorney General's Office had
good news for women who want
to get out of abusive
relationships. The office has set
aside over $3 million dollars in
relocation funds.
"This money is for women who
want to get out of abusive
relationships and relocate. In the
past two years we have had 3,500
application," she said.
She recalled one Florida woman
who, in her attempts to escape an
abusive relationship, ran into
oncoming traffic. "This money is
available to help women and
children leave and find a safe
place," Mabry said.
"The mission of the Refuge
House is to provide direct
services to battered women, their
children, and sexual assault
survivors, as well as eliminate
conditions in society that allow
such violence to continue," said
Gadsden County Refuge House
coordinator Karnell Jones.
She emphasized that all Refuge
House services are free and
confidential. The Crisis hotline in

It's been slow going recently for the first Habitat For Humanity home in Gadsden County since
the Leon and Gadsden County organizations mergd. Steve Craig, construction chief, said few
volunteers have shown up since the first day and he finds himself working alone most days.
'lesday afternoon, Craig with only a radio to keep him company, was putting up insulation,
preparing for sheet rock installation later in the week. He said he would have been much further
ahead with more help. Volunteers are needed, and experience in the construction industry is not
required. Craig said anyone can help, even if they sweep up or help keep the site cleared of debris.
He hopes the home, at 223 Crawford Streeet, will be ready by December 1. To volunteer or find
out how you can help, call Craig at 933-1478. (Photo by Alice DuPont)

harvested each spring, and now
we grow and harvest 12 months

cost of time and commitment
from both my brother and I, as
well as our families," Taylor
said.
"We have reached a point in
our lives where it has become
obvious that we no longer enjoy
this business. We question
whether or not we want our
children to follow where we

we are sensitive to that and act

meeting those requirements."
The letter is dated Oct. 25.
Havana City Manager Howard
McKinnon said there are currently
92 Havana residents participating in
the recycling program. He said he is
seeking a proposal from WastePro
for providing voluntary curbside
recycling service, and that
preliminary inquiries indicate'the
company will charge slightly more
than the county. McKinnon said he
would report back to the Council on
the matter after discussing the issue
further with WastePro
representatives.
Powell said only 1,000 people
county-wide are currently
participating in the program, and
asked the Council to agree to
terminate the interlocal agreement
calling for the county to provide
Havana residents with curbside
recycling service through July.
"We only had 1,000 customers
county-wide ... we need to pick up
customers," Powell told council
members. "We've been doing it for
11 years the wrong way. Now it's
time to do it right."
Residents who want to continue
recycling can drop off their
recyclable items at a bin on Post
Plant Road off Highway 12.
The trouble with that, council
members said, is that most residents
will likely opt to toss recyclable
items in with solid waste rather than
drive 15 miles or more to dispose of
it.
Council member R. L. Miller said
County Commissioner Eugene
Lamb had discussed with the
council the necessity of providing a
rural waste collection site closer to
Havana, and that Lamb had hopes
someone would donate land for that
purpose.
Miller said he thought that was
unlikely.
"Nobody's going to do that. Buy
the land it wouldn't take that
much land," he said. "...drive 15


miles to take a little trash? No way."
"The problem we had before was
people started using the recycling
bin as a trash can, so the county
removed it," Suggs said in reply.
But Council member David
Norman said there's more to the
matter than convenience.
"It's a landfill issue. We can't just
keep filling up landfills," he said.
"With the amount of funding the
county provides, we certainly can
afford to provide recycling to a
county our size."
The council ultimately voted to
end the interlocal agreement 6-1
with Collins dissenting and each
council member expressing
disapproval df the county's
decision. Powell said the county
would provide curbside recycling
through Dec. 31.
Mayor Pro Tem Vemell Ross
asked Powell and County Budget
Director Davin Suggs whether the
county would lose grant money if it
stopped providing curbside
recycling.
In the letter sent to Powell, Ron
Hendricks, environmental
administrator for DEP's waste
reduction section, wrote "We are
concerned that Gadsden would
become the first county in the state
to totally terminate all recycling
services since the Legislature
enacted the recycling requirements
nearly 20 years ago in 1988. We are
also concerned that the county
would lose. access to several
hundred thousand dollars (at a
minimum) of grant money from
DEP."
According to the letter, Florida
Statutes contain two basic recycling
requirements:
(1) That counties have a
program designed to, recover a
"significant portion" of at least four
of the following materials and to
offer these materials for recycling:
newspaper, aluminum cans, steel
cans, glass, plastic bottles,


cardboard, office paper and yard
trash, and,
(2) A county's solid waste
management and recycling
programs shall be designed to
provide, at a minimum, that the
amount of municipal solid waste
that would be disposed within the
county and the municipalities
within its boundaries is reduced by
at least 30 percent.
That statute also permits counties
with populations less than 100,000
to provide residents with the
"opportunity to recycle" instead of
meeting the 30 percent waste
reduction goal. Counties can meet
the requirement by establishing a
series of places for collection of
source-separated materials.
"I've been in touch with DEP, and
we will not be in danger of losing
state money," Suggs said, later
stating that Hendricks "wrote the
letter without talking to any county
officials. I talked with him Monday
for an hour. We will go back to
Hendricks with a proposal. He was
quite shocked that a county this size
still provided curbside service."
In other matters, council
members:
Approved on final reading an
ordinance calling for a land-use
change for 353 acres, with Norman
abstaining. Developers plan to build
a retirement community at the site.
Approved a request from
Tallavana Christian School to use
the town park Nov. 27 for a fish fry.
Approved increasing the town's
volunteer firefighter clothing
allowance from $500 to $600
annually, with council members
Norman ard Don Vickers
abstaining.
Approved a request from
McKinnon for a local update of the
2010 Census program. '.
Gave preliminary approval to a
five-year capital improvement plan
that will include, upgrades to the
sewer plant.

A free exchanggee of ideas is necessary for goo good government and good coIITunili-,. IL


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

By Alice DuPont, Editor




Contemplation


Sale of park not a good move


Remember Arsenio Hall? He is the black
guy who had a late night talk show on
television several years ago. Hall had a little
segment on the show where he would talk
about an action usually taken by a
governmental entity then he would say "it
makes you go u-m-m-m."
That's what came to my mind last Tuesday
night when the Quincy City Commission
voted to sell the 343 acres, the entire business
park, for less than $5,000 per acre. In a time
when other land in the same area is selling for
more than $30,000 per acre. It made me go u-
m-m-m.
I heard the rational about we the fact that
need money to pay off the approximately $1.2
million dollar debt to Progress Energy (two
months) and how 25 jobs (initially) will be
generated.
I never know what issues people will talk
about. I certainly didn't think people would be
as upset, as many seem to be, about the sale.
Everywhere I went this weekend people were
talking about the land sale. Several people
actually asked me asked if commissioners
really had the interest of the citizens at heart. I
assured them that those commissioners who
voted for the sale said that they were doing it
for the citizens.
In my opinion it was foolish and not very
well thought out to sell the property for the
small amount of money. If you are going to
sell it, at least sell it for what it's worth. For
Heaven's sake, I didn't know it was a fire sale.
SI suppose someone knew the property was for
sale but it certainly wasn't widely known. I
always thought that it you had something to
sell, the least you do is put a "For Sale" sign
on it to lure prospective buyers or spark some
interest.
I don't blame the prospective buyer, Clayton
Sembler, at all. Who doesn't want a sweetheart
deal? The fact that the property was never let
for bid also has some citizens scratching their
heads and saying u-m-m-mm.
I thought it was shortsighted to sell the
property when the issue came up a few years
ago. All you have to do its look where
development "is" going:' TiVi years' ago the"


,10/90 Business Park in Midway was thought
by some people to be a' waste of time.
Naysayers said that no businesses want to be
in the middle of nowhere. Take a drive in the
park and see what's there, all kinds of
businesses. The park isn't owner by the city of
Midway, but if it were, they'd be sitting on top
of a gold mine.
The Quincy Business Park is the proverbial
stone's throw away from Interstate 10. It's
across the street from railroad access and 20
minutes from the airport. The City has just
recently run a six inch water line and sewer is
available. You don't even have to be smart to
know that the property in question is worth
much more than the amount for which it is
being sold.
Now that the sale it has come to the light
there are folks who say they are prepared to
go to court to stop it.
I don't buy the "that land was just sitting
there" explanation. It's called planning for the
future and holding to a business park while
trying to lure businesses is what, I thought, the
business park was supposed to do.
Lori Bouie gave a perfect analogy to
Commissioner Sherrie Taylor following the
meeting. She told Taylor that selling the
property is comparable to an individual who
owns a $300,000 home selling it for $30,000
to pay off credit cards and a utility bill. "Sure"
she said, "you pay off the bills but now you
have no place to live...that's not smart."
So we take the money and pay the Progress
Energy bill. Remember commissioners voted
a few months back to borrow $1 million
dollars to catchup bills. Foolish me, I thought
Progress Energy was included in that wheri
commissioners asked what it could take to
catch up on "all" bills. At the time, I guess
Progress Energy wasn't considered a bill.
Once we've paid Progress Energy we will
have nothing to lure businesses to the business
park, ever. If, and I hope this doesn't happen,
,what' do we sell next to pay off a delinquent
bill.
I don't know, maybe we could "find" some
one willing to pay a whopping $50,000 and
i" thir. in twc.]j'b No. that's a deal.


Aunt Beatrice died back in May.
Someone at the funeral "allowed" that
Uncle Womack wouldn't last a year
without. her. No one disagreed. They had
been married .for 63 years. I don't know
exactly how marriages are put
together......but I know this one was
supposed to be. They leaned on each other
like you read about in those story books.
We buried Uncle Womack this past
Sunday. He held out for almost five
months. I didn't need the preacher to tell
me what a good person he was or how hard
he farmed or what a good husband and
father. I had never spent a day on this earth
without the complete knowledge and full
realization that he was also a pretty dam
good uncle!
But death and funerals are not on my
mind this morning. I'm worried about a-
way of life that might have come and gone.
I grew up with the utmost love and
appreciation for Uncle Womack. I knew he
was going to say the least of anyone at the
family get-togethers. He was as quiet as
Aunt Beatrice was talkative. And Bea
wasn't the loudest of the aunts by a whole
heap. You ought to have seen Granny and
Aunt Adell and Mother when they got
started! F. D. and Hugh did the talking for
the uncles.....unless you said something
about politics to Uncle Ben or cattle to
Uncle Clifford.
We didn't go to Disney World if my
parents had two days off. We didn't take a
trip out west or go see the leaves turn in
New England. We didn't go to a big league
baseball game or to Mount Rushmore. We
never once even went down to Memphis to
see the ducks out in front of that big hotel.
We loaded up in a 1951 Chevrolet and
drove over to Lawrenceburg to see how the
family was getting along.
There is no way that you are going to
comprehend this.....but this was way back
in the days when they let the grown-ups eat
first! I think it was some kind of state law.
Me and Patricia and J. C. and Bill and
Martha and June and Charles and Barbara
and Joe and Kathy and Jerry and Teresa
and Leon and David Mark and a half dozen
other cousins had to listen to the talk, smell
the baked beans, fried chicken and sweet
potato casserole.....but we had to wait
"patiently" until the old people had pushed
back from the table before we could move
in.


I've seen days when those aunts and
uncles would eat until two in the afternoon!
We'd be lucky to get a chicken neck and a
cold biscuit! I've seen fights break out over
a piece of lemon meringue pie! I've split
my cornbread in two and handed Tami Jo
the top half. I used to make sure I'd get far
away from Leon so he wouldn't steal my
ham hock......
I grew up with these people! It is amazing
how well you get to know your cousins
when you're hanging around on the front
porch waiting for Granny to holler "alright
children, come and get it!"
After dinner we'd play chase or hide and
go seek or just plain out fight until supper.
When it got dark we'd tell stories about the
headless rider of Steadman Ridge and the
one arm hatchet man who was coming to
get one of the younger cousins that very
night! In the summer we would swim in
Sugar Creek. We also took baths in it and
drank it and played on the swinging bridge
that spanned it down behind the Mt. Zion
Church. They would come over to our
house and I would show them my secret
hiding place.
As we grew older we raced Uncle
Clifford's truck down those gravel roads.
We fished with a 30-30 rifle. We talked
about girls and life and how slow things
moved. We wished our parents were a little
more hip......
We lost Aunt Delia and Uncle Hugh way
Stood early. Her beauty and his laugher will
be.with us forever. Uncle F. D. died several
years ago. Not a day goes by that I don't
think of' something "a little crazy" he did.
Uncle Ben was so solid. I am still adjusting
to life without him. We lost Uncle Clifford,
Aunt Beatrice, and now, Uncle Womack in
rapid succession.
I am not such a writer or smart enough to
convey to you how much I loved those
people! And I am certainly not bitter or
complaining, I appreciate how' lucky we
have been. But as I sat last week at Uncle
Womack's funeral I realized so well that
the mantel is passing. Those stalwarts of
my life, and our family's life, are leaving
us. What an example! What a legacy! And
what memories!
And those reminiscences are shared. I'm
not alone in remembering Granny's fried
pies and her great big heart; or Pa's careful
and meticulous approach to everything. We

When good pumpkins go bad


And so it happened that in mid-October we
brought home two pumpkins and an apple-
sized gourd, to which we applied butcher
knives, precision pumpkin-cutting saws and
an assortment of stickers, and it was good.
Nary. a piece of pumpkin guts land in
anyone's hair. My son and I each emerged
from the process with 10 fingers. Nobody had
to call the fire department. Or the ambulance
service.
The large pumpkins, we named Scary
Pumpkin and Cat Pumpkin. (This is because
we carved a scary face on Scary Pumpkin and
a cat on Cat Pumpkin, in case you were
wondering.) The small pumpkin, we named
Baby Pumpkin, for obvious reasons. Long
ago, I dedicated my mental database of
creative names to the breed of driver that
swerves out wildly in front of other motorists
onto a two-lane highway and proceeds to
drive 15 miles an hour in a no-passing lane.
Anyway. My 5-year-old was quite pleased
with the whole gory process and spent, and
this is a. conservative estimate, one month's.
worth of daily Scooby Doo reruns staring at
the hollow-headed three.
Then, bit by bit, he found other ways to
occupy himself, like distributing every toy in
his possession from one end of the house to
the other, and he forget about the Jack-o-
lanterns for a time.
SMeanwhile, Baby Pumpkin, which had a
facial expression best described as a cross
between Betty Boop crooning into a
microphone and Jerry Lewis mid-sprawl, was
overtaken by black and grey goo. Scary
Pumpkin developed a serious sag as he began
to rot from within, and I took Cat Pumpkin on
a one-\\ a% midnight trip to the outdoor trash;
can.
It was Monday rught before my son noticed.
"What's that black smuft'" lie said after w
got home, noting Baby Pumpkin also had
become, well, piquant. "And where's
Mommy Pumpkin?"
Mommy Pumpkin??? There was a Mommy
Pumpkin? It was then that I understood with
the certain, unfailing clarity of a trapped rat
that Cat Pumpkin was only a rough draft of a

name, a working title until the right one came
along.
Which was ... Mommy Pumpkin.
"Well," I said, hot at all ready to discuss her
death by Good Until Disease, "I gave her to a
family that didn't have a pumpkin."
I froze, instantly stunned by the unabridged
stupidity of that lie and the ease with which
its outrageousness arranged itself in my brain
and flew from my lips like a rabid bat.
He, in turn, looked bemused. Waited for the
punch line. Looked down at Baby Pumpkin
and back to me.
Then things began to spin wildly out of
control.
"He 'misses her," he said. "Where is she?
We need to take him inside. And why does
Scary 'Pumpkin have spider ,webs in his
eyes?"
It seemed a bad time to point out that those
were not spiderwebs but graying, decaying
strands of pumpkin he saw.
No thought marked "Right answer" entered
my mind.
Instead, I said, "You see, pumpkins are a
fruit. They only live for a certain amount of
time."
Horror mixed with disbelief flashed from
his eyes. He looked silently at Scary
Pumpkin, who really was pretty scary by
then, and then at Baby Pumpkin. Indicated
that if I mentioned the word fruit again a
screaming, stomping, crying fit would result.
Whether it was to be his or mine was not
clear.
"They'll be together again someday," I said,
immediately wishing for a bolt of lightening
to strike me or at least a roll of duct tape to
materialize so I could apply it to my mouth.
I shot a glance at him. Forget about it, his
look said. Try again.
'Finally, sweet, crazy" inspiration dawned,
not a minute too soon.
"It's cold out here. Let's go inside and I'll
cook a nice, hot supper. We'll have fried
apples for dessert."
"OK," he said, and that was that.
I am way, way ahead of you. The artificial
Christmas tree is in the closet.

Sale of industrial park should

A flood hit a Midwestern river
town. The water rose rapidly,
trapping a man in his home. As the
water rose and covered the first
floor, he began to pray to God for
help.
A rescue boat came by about then
offering a chance to escape. The
man declined the offer, saying God
was taking care of him.
When the rising water drove him
to the second floor he
prayed harder. Still
the rain fell and the
water continued to
rise and the man
fled to his rooftop,
still praying for help.
His faith was J _
strong, he
reasoned, and God would answer
his prayers.
A helicopter soon hovered .
overhead, shining its beacon down; -
on the trapped man. A voice from
the loudspeaker told him to grdb'
hold of the rope. He declined once
again, placing his faith in a God
who would answer his prayers.
After the helicopter flew on to
rescue another, his house collapsed
in the raging water. As he was
about to drown, he asked God why
he hadn't answered his prayer for
help. A voice boomed from the
heaven, "I sent you a boat and a
helicopter."

Okay, it's a joke. But there is a
present-day message here.
One of the first things I remember
our local leadership calling for
when I first came to Gadsden
County was jobs. Not enough. Pay
too little. Require too much
education. The reasons they gave
for our county's unemployed were
several and various.
There were stump speeches at
election time. There were sermons
from the pulpits. There were
appeals to Tallahassee and
Washington for help. There were
prayers, both public and private.
Now we are about to get what we
asked for and prayed for. It's not a
rescue boat, maybe, but it's at least
a 14: jon boat with a 25 horsepower
Evinrude. It will rescue at least 25
families. And probably as many as
200.
Why are we ready to send this
boat away empty? How will you
answer the children of those 25
people who could have gone to
work there when they want to
know why their parents still don't
have jobs? Do you have any other
jobs to give them? If so, now would
be a very good time to produce
them.
There are many, many good
reasons to pursue the sale of the
city's industrial park to Clayton
Sembler:
*He's actually willing to pay for
the land. The city gave away other
land in the same industrial park for
the promise of jobs for its residents.
Giving it away was good business
for the city...it improved the tax
base and it put people to work who
could contribute tothe local
economy. Selling it is even better
business.
*All those jobs. Sembler's
company has millions of dollars
worth of contracts for his products,
And, it's a market that's growing
rapidly and is sustainable. They are
also jobs that offer about half again
what most of us make. The
requirements for most of these jobs
are minimal, requiring no special
education or training.
*The money to be received from
the sale will bail the city out of its
financial problems with Progress

Schools focusing on FCAT


By LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor

There's more than one way to
skin a cat even an FCAT.
Gadsden County School
District Parent Services
Coordinator Audrey Lewis-
Potter wants to help teachers, stu-
dents and, maybe most impor-
tantly, parents to work together to
help local students succeed.
Currently, Lewis-Potter and
her team which includes a par-
ent liaison at each school are
focusing on how to bring stu-
dents at lower-scoring FCAT lev-
els up to speed.
"If we can bring the gain
score up, the difference in stu-
dents' academic performance
and in our school grades will be
dramatic," she said.
Lewis-Potter created the dis-
trict-wide Different Levels of
Parental Involvement (DLOPI)
program, a data-based accounta-
bility system which measures-
parent participation to student
performance.
She has shared the DLOPI
model with parents and teachers
across the state; here at home,
she has the statistics to prove that
high levels of parental involve-
ment in a child's education result
in high-levels of academic suc-
cess for the child.
DLOPI breaks parental
involvement down into five lev-


els; level 1 being the lowest,
level 5, the highest.
It's the students whose data
shows level 1 and 2 parental par-
ticipation Lewis-Potter wants to
target.
"We want to contact parents
of level I and level 2 students to
help these students move up in
math, reading and science,"
Lewis-Potter said. "We are trying
to encourage schools to have
someone meet individually with
parents, to contact them either by
phone or by going door-to-door."
Lewis-Potter cites Havana
Middle School Principal Vema
Norris' efforts to reach and
involve parents as a model for
other schools.
Parents of level 1 and 2 stu-
dents are given a folder contain-
ing their children's individual
FCAT reports and a sample
school grade report to help par-
ents understand how schools are
scored. School grades are deter-,
mined by total points earned,.
adequate progress and the per-
centage of students tested.
Included in the folders are lists of
activities that can help students
master certain academic skills.
The school's guidance couriselor
also sent letters to each of. the
parents with specific details
about how to improve their chil-
dren's skills.
At a recent Havana Middle
School meeting for parents of


level 1 and 2 students, Norris
handed out dictionaries, work-
sheets, flash cards and other
items to insure families had the
tools they need to succeed.
Norris paid the majority of the
cost of the items herself; others
were paid for by contributions
from community businesses and
faith-based partners.
"They're being more pre-
scriptive for the condition of the
child's performance," Lewis-
Potter noted. "This is what we
are asking each school in
Gadsden County to replicate."
Another way to help students
- and parents is to remind them
to ask for assistance when they
need it.
"If you can't help your child
because of the rigorous testing,
don't be afraid to ask for help,"
Lewis-Potter said.
Online homework help is
available at
www.bigy.con/homework; par-
ents can also call the Big Y
Homework Helpline at 1-800-
866-BIGY.
James A. Shanks Middle
Sclfool parent liaison Claretha
White says making one-on-one
contact with parents of level 1
and level 2 parents is critical to
students' success.
"My philosophy is, if they
don't come to us, we'll go there,"
she said. "We want to reach as
many students as we can.

6 The Gadsden County Times November 1, 2007


Bear Creek Music and Art Festival moves to Spirit of the Suwannee


Big IV Productions announced
Monday that the Bear Creek
Music and Art Festival, slated for
SNov. 16-18, has been moved to the
Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park
in Live Oak. The festival, former-
ly scheduled in Quincy, was
denied its festival permit by
Gadsden County.
After encountering this obsta-
cle, Big IV Productions directors
Paul Levine and Lyle Williams
spoke with an associate in the
music and festival community,
Clint Tipton, the promoter of the
Paralounge Drum Circle at the
Spirit of the Suwannee Music
Park. Tipton suggested that they
speak with James Cornett,
President and CEO of the Spirit of
the Suwannee Music Park, and the
ball was rolling.
In making the announcement
of the move, Levine stated that he
"would like to recognize the self-
less efforts of many members of
the music community to help pre-
serve this special event. James
Comett, Randy Judy and Beth
Judy (producers of the 11-year
running Magnolia Fest), and Clint
Tipton exhibited a true spirit of


cooperation in helping to make
possible this venue change. What
all our events are about is building
community amongst the fans, the
musicians, the vendors, the volun-
teers, other promoters, Suwannee
County and our extended musical
family. The Bear Creek organiza-
tion is truly thankful and grateful
to all these good people".
Big IV Productions had
acquired land. in Gadsden County
with the iritent of it being the
venue for the Bear Creek Music
and Art Festival, a roots music fes-
tival featuring dozens of bands
such as Little Feat, Umphrey's
McGee, Burning Spear and
Perpetual Groove, to name just a
few. Levine and Williams
acknowledged that they had not
allowed ample time to get to know
their neighbors in the surrounding
community and this resulted in the
permit denial. Levine was former-
ly co-producer of the Down on the
Farm event, held for the three pre-
vious years on another farm in
Gadsden County. "Our goal", said
Levine, "is to (go back to Gadsden
County) and to do more communi-
ty oriented events. We need to


prove to Gadsden County that our
intentions and actions are always
focused on our neighbor's best
interests. We recognize that we
have to make a greater effort with
Bear Creek to educate the commu-
nity about the event and to help
them understand the positive eco-
nomic and community impact."
Williams noted that,"we just did
not have enough time to get to
know each other and for the com-
munity to understand the positive
things we are trying to accomplish
in Gadsden County through this
festival".
Other participants in the event
include Clean Vibes, a recycling
company that will be managing
grounds cleanup and providing
some environmental education as
well. The festival will be utilizing
recycled products as is possible. In
the future, the event hopes to uti-
lize solar power and bio-diesel
energies. Sweetwater Brewing
Co., out of Atlanta, Georgia, is
sponsoring the event. Regional
painters and photographers will
also be showcased in a gallery set-
ting.

Graduation there are options


By LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor
Students are like snowflakes -
no two are the same.
That's one reason Gadsden
County School District Parent
Services' Coordinator Audrey
Lewis-Potter wants parents and
students to know all the options
available for achieving a high
school diploma.
"We need parents to know all of
the different options so the child
does not get left behind," she said.
"We don't want them to give up
hope."
Failing the Florida
Comprehensive Assessment Test,
or FCAT, can prevent a child from
graduating. But taking the ACT
test, a national standardized test
offered several times throughout
the year, and passing is one way to
win after failing the FCAT.
Another is the GED Exit pro-
gram.
Offered at Carter Parramore

grandson, Anthony Johnson, at
a graduation ceremony she
hosted for him after he passed
the GED. (Photo submitted)
Academy and at Gadsden
Technical Institute, the test creates-
an opportunity for students to earn
a high school diploma.
That's what Patricia Bradwell,
who works with local schools
through the VISTA (Volunteers In
Service To America) program, sug-
gested to her grandson after it was
determined he was not eligible to
graduate from East Gadsden High


School.
"I was glad he got that option,"
she said. "He passed the FCAT but
didn't have the credits to graduate."
Bradwell said her grandson,
Anthony Johnson, 18, is intelligent
but had trouble keeping up after
peer pressure led him away from
his studies.
"He wasn't a slow student, he
just fell in with the wrong crowd,"
she recounts.
When Johnson passed the GED
after studying for it at Gadsden
Technical Institute, Bradwell threw
a graduation gala for him at Carter
Parramore Academy complete
with cap and gown. She invited
Gadsden County Superintendent of
Schools Reginald James, who
attended, and friends and family.
Quincy City Council member
Sherrie Taylor also attended.
"Some kids in his class came to
support him. When family and
friends started showing up, he
cried," Bradwell said. "I was
happy, he was happy."

Sports


N.ew


My nephew Michael Blaho got
back at his Uncle Joe last week. An
Ohio State fan, he's caught some grief
fiom me the past yeai and a half
because of what Florida has done to
the Buckeyes in football and basket-
ball.
Well, last week it was Michael
doing it to me.
Of the 10 football picks he hit 5.
Not real good. but a lot better than the
2 of 10 I got.
The loss dropped my season mark


to 7-3 and I'm going to have a time
winning number 8 this week.
My opponent is Rick Williams, a
\erv bus. man, who is well known in
sports circles in the Big Bend.
Rick. is the Coordinator of the
Sports Medicine Outreach Program for
the Tallahassee Orthopedic Clinic.
He and Dr. Tom Haney started the
program 18 years ago, and what a pro-
gram it's been.
They pretty much take care of the
athletes in all the sports in the Big


Bend. They are well needed, well
versed in what they do, well respected.
and greatly appreicated.
Yes, I attest I'm a big fan of Dr.
Haney. Rick and the program because
I know first hand how they have
helped programs and athletes these 18
years.
Rick is orginally a North Carolina
lad. raised in Raleigh.
He attended prep school at
Srederick Military Academy in
Portsmouth Va., %\here he played foot-
ball, basketball, and baseball.
After graduating Srederick, Rick
went to Gardner-Webb College and
played four years of football in the
defensive back held.
Next he attended grad school at
Wake Forest in the Pre-Med program.
Rick got to this part of the country
because his dad was the Project
Manager of the Farley Nuclear Plant in
Dothan. In Dothan Rick met a bunch
of good ole Panhandle Florida boys
and began playing softball with them.
He also met a very pretty Port St.
Joe girl, Judy Herring, whom he some-
how talked into marrying him, I guess
because he said he would settle in Port
St. Joe.
He and Judy have raised two ghls
Alyson Gerlock and Lmdsay Williams.
Alyson and husband, Justin, have a


granddaughter for Judy and Rick. 3
year old Zoe.
Alyson is in Real Estate in St. Joe
and Lindsay is a Behavior Specialist
m the Gulf County School System.
Both are FSU graduates.
Rick is also an FSU grad having
received an Atheletic Trainers Degree
while working with the Sports
Medicine Outreach Program.
He took lime to take me on m my
program with these picks....
FSU over BOSTON COLLEGE-
I'm hanging with my Noles because
Dr. Haney and Di. Jordan take care of
them.
USF ovei CINCINNATI-Florda
schools have better athletes.
FLORIDA over VANDERBILT-
Florida schools have better athletes.
FAMU over N.C. A&T-Another
Florida school, more good athletes,
and Dr. Jerry Rolle takes good care of
the Rattlers.
ALABAMA omer LSU-Saban and
an upset.
SOUTH CAROLINA oer
ARKANSAS-Never pick against
Spurrier.
WAKE FOREST over VIRGINIA-
Have to go with my alma mater.
VIRGINIA TECH oler GEORGAL
TECH-Hokies can run.
OREGON over ARIZONA STATE-


Ducks have a pretty good football
team.

WGHS Panthers roll over. Franklin County 69-7


SLeroy Smith scored 4 touch-
downs and Travis Hinson 3 and
West Gadsden hammered
Franklin Co. 69-7 in the Panthers
final home football game this year.

downs on scrimmage runs of 31
and 6 yards. The other two TD's


came on fumble recovery returns
of 30 and 11 yards.

Freshman Monterrious Presha
also got in on the scoring with
touchdown runs of 12 and 20
yards. Brandon Thomas got the


other Panther touchdown on a 14-
yard scamper. Middle linebacker
Tyrone Jackson had a nice defen-
sive night for West Gadsden.
Jose Calderon booted 9 of 10
extra point tries to wrap up the
scoring. The win came in front of
a Parent Appreciation Night


crowd. "We appreciate the crowd
we had on hand.", West Gadsden

"It was an easy game and it was
good all the parents got to see their
kids play."
West Gadsden closes their sea-
son Friday night when they travel


to Liberty co. for a 7:30 pm game.
"This game will be anything
but an easy one." Jackson com-
mented. "They are always tough
and like us could easily be playing
for a district championship."
Both Liberty Co. and West
Gadsden are 4-2 in District 1-A


and both lost to Jay and Port St.
Joe in close.games. Jackson owns
a three game win streak against the
Bulldogs and hopes to continue it
and give his team a break even
season mark. The Panthers enter
this game with a 4-5 overall
record.


Jaguars give Wakulla scare until turnovers catch up with EGHS
f :, .... ,_ : .... .. # .. : .. : ::,,: .':;, .. "..- If '1 : "if t fl'. .' j )


by JOE FEROLITO
Times Sports Editor

East Gadsden took the open-
.ing kick-off, promptly. passed
their way down the field and
stunned Wakulla with a quick
touchdown in a District 1-3A con-
test last Friday.
The caught off guard War
Eagles were then played even by
the Jaguars most of the game.
The home team took advantage of


East Gadsden turnovers, howev-
er, and mustered a 21-7 home-
coming win on a crisp night.
After a 24 yard kick-off
return by Antwon Frost set the
Jaguars up at their 40, the East
Gadsden team moved 60 yards in
9 passing plays to get on the
scoreboard.
:Eduardo Torres connected
on 6 of the 9 throws moving the
Jaguars in scoring territory main-
ly on a 23-yard strike to Ricky


Ray and a 19-yard toss to Frost.
Frost then caught a 10-yard TD
pass from Torres. That along with
Fernando Shanchez's extra point
boot put East Gadsden up 7-0
quickly.
That would be the only score
for the Jaguars. Four lost fumbles
and 4 pass interceptions hurt the
offense especially when it looked
like the Jaguars could score again.
Wakulla tied the game in the
second quarter on a 27-yard pass


from Casey Eddinger to Tyell
Green and Brett Wilson's conver-
sion kick.
It stayed tied until there four
minutes was gone in the third
quarter when an East Gadsden
drive was ended by an intercep-
tion by the War Eagles, Kendell
Gavin who returned it 62 yards
and gave Wakulla a lead.
Before the quarter was over
the War Eagles picked off another,
pass that set up a 50-yard scoring


drive. That drive resulted in
Xavier Blockers 9-yard touch-
down run which ended the night's
scoring.
[ "We came out and surprised
them," East Gadsden head coach
Scott Anderson said.
"I felt we were moving the ball
Son offense but ran into turnovers."
"We're improving but we can't
stay consistent on offense."
Though the loss hurt it didn't
'ake the Jaguars entirely out of the


play-offpicture. They have a 1-2
district record. Wakulla is 3-0 and
has wrapped up a play-off berth.
The Jaguars next opponent is
Godby whom they will take on at
Corry Field in a special Thursday
night game. Godby is 2-1 in the
district, as is Bay, Wakulla's oppo-
nent this week.
A win by Wakulla and East
Gadsden would force a shoot-out
play-off for second place a week
from Monday.

EAST GADSDEN
Last week: The Jaguars jumped to a 7-0 lead
over Wakulla and was tied with the highly ranked
War eagles 7-7 in the middle of the third quarter.. A
series of turnovers hurt and East Gadsden went on to
lose the District 2-3A game 21-7.
This week: The Jaguars host another district foe
in Godby. The game will be played at Corry Field
on Thursday night with a 7:30 pm start time.
Last year: Godby pulled out a 35-21 win in an
offensive show played at Gene Cox stadium in

night.




*PREMIER BANK


What to look for: Another offensive show.
Godby quarterback A.J. graham and running back
British footman are two of the better offensive play-
ers in the Big Bend. East Gadsden's passing attack
moved' the ball well against Wakulla but turnovers
short circuited the offense.
Believe it or not a win could put the Jaguars in a
chance at district second place. If East gadsden wins
and Wakulla beats Bay High then a play off for sec-
ond place would have to be scheduled.

Lady Cats fall to John Paul II in district championship


1A District 1 semifinal
Munroe def. Laurel Hill

22-25, 25-20, 25-14, 25-18
A coin toss forced the Lady
Cats to play back to back semi-
final and final matches at East
Hill Christian School in
Pensacola last Thursday. It took
a game and a half to wake up
from the trip and 2 A? more
games to take the match in four.
Senior middle hitters, Jill Purvis
and Crystal Wade had six kills
each. Purvis added two blocks
and three digs. Wade and third


senior, Malorie McKinnon each
had five service aces. Purvis,
Wade and sophomore Spenser
Morris added three digs each on
defense. Kristin Allen totaled
22 assists in the match.

The win was the Lady Cats
20th of the season and put the
Lady Cats in the finals match
that followed.

1A-District 1 Championship
John Paul II def. Munroe

25-17, 25-19, 24-26, 18-25,


15-12
It was shame and karma for
the Lady Cats in district finals
Thursday night. It was a shame
that the East Hill Christian fire
alarm kept going off for no
known reason and taking with it
some of the Lady Cats rest time
between their semifinal win
over Laurel Hill and the final
match with rival John Paul II. It
was a shame that the two fine
Class A teams, that split during
the regular season, had to play
180 miles away with neither
time having more than a handful


of fans each. And it was a
shame there had to be a loser in
a battle between two hardwork-
ing Class A schools. But it was
karma that gave John Paul II the
district win after losing two
years in a row to the Lady Cats
in five games.
John Paul took the first two
games without serious opposi-
tion from the Lady Cats and
looked like they were on their
way to a third game win.. The
East Hill athletic director had
already gone to get the champi-
onship trophy in game three,


when something fired up the
Lady Cats volleyball team. They
went on to win games three and
four and looked like they would
three-peat over John Paul in
game five. With Munroe lead-
ing 12-10 and Jill Purvis set to
serve, JPII called a time out.
Purvis, one of the team's?TMs top
servers, sent the ball into the net
and John Paul then went on a 5-
0 run to win their first district
volleyball title ever.
Crystal Wade led the Lady
Cats in kills with eight while
Spenser Morris and Jill Purvis


added six kills each. Wade,
Purvis and Ivie Thomas played
tremendous defense, totaling
twenty three digs together.
Purvis was also big at the net
with six huge blocks. Wade
added five aces and Kristin
Allen had 22 assists and three
aces. Munroe dropped to 20-7
on the season.
Munroe traveled to the 1A-
District 2 winner, St. Francis
Catholic High School(22-4) in
Gainesville on Tuesday night for
a Region 1 Quarterfinal
matchup on Tuesday night,

But the folks that held us

We've had such shinning

Energy. If you think this isn't a
problem (your lights still work, after,
all), get your head out of the sand.
The city can't negotiate with another
power source as long as it has bad
credit here. You will end up paying
higher utility bills because of this
debt. The city's credit rating on other
debt will suffer, causing the city to
pay higher interest rates on future
debt, which you will pay. Then
there's the message it sends to other
potential investors in our
community: "Stay put of Gadsden
County because they can't pay their
bills." It's an image we can help to
improve by cashing one check and
immediately writing another.
*The buyer is a known entity. He's
known here and he's liked here. He
already signs paychecks that go to
many, many Gadsden County
workers. He pays thousands and
thousands of dollars in taxes here.
He likes Gadsden County and he
wants to keep his business in
Gadsden County. I can't imagine a
better business partner than one with
'these traits.
And a few of the complaints that
have been lodged about the deal]
should be examined.
*The "I didn't know it was for
sale" cry. For Pete's sake, it's an
industrial park and it's vacant. How
could you not know. it was for sale?
The city has been trying to sell it for
years and years. There have been
very few lookers, let alone any
buyers. The city even hired a man to
market it at a cost of several times
the rate it paid the Chamber of
Commerce. With his many
connections, he was unable to attract
any offers.

cannot be developed. Abig chunk of
it is mitigation land from the
development of the Flying J at
Midway. The State of Florida will
not allow these wetlands to be
developed. Wish all you want. It
won't happen. Those days are long
gone, and for good reason. We as a
people of this state have determined
we need to protect our wetlands for
our collective good, and we're doing
"it.
'"I want to buy it and build houses
on it." It's an industrial park. You
can't build houses on it.
*The price. $1.6 miillion. Too
cheap? If it is from a private
individual seller, perhaps. But I do
have a problem with the comparable
prices being tossed around. I'd like
to see some property of this size
actually selling for the amounts
claimed. Keep in mind it would have
to be two-thirds wetlands. There are
asking prices, but I don't see any
buyers willing to write those checks
yet. Any real estate professional
knows asking prices aren't comps.
Then there are the intangible benefits
the city receives from the sale that a
private seller wouldn't. Future tax
revenues from the property (it gets
absolutely none now). Huge utility
bills to operate the business (which it
desperately needs to continue to
improve its utility system). Sales tax'
and property tax revenues from all of
those families who will be working
there, many of whom will see an
increase in their standard of living.

SILENCE IS DEATH
IT'S TIME TO RAISE AWARENESS ABOUT HIV/AIDS IN OUR COMMUNITY

Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) is the virus that causes AIDS. It has been more than 25 years since
the first report of the HIV virus. This disease has become one of the deadliest epidemics in the history of
mankind; killing 25 million people world wide. There are 1.2 million Americans living with HIV/AIDS, and
about 40,000 new cases reported each year in the United States. Many of those who are infected with HIV
are unaware of their status and can unknowingly spread the virus to others. Through awareness, education,
and testing, we can prevent the spread of HIV/AIDS.

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 Prom
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.

Corridor. The corridor cele-
brates the contributions to

Geechee communities along the
Atlantic coast from
Jacksonville, FL to
Wilmington, NC. The commis-
sion will manage the area in
partnership with the, National

State home safety programs increases standards


Nearly six months after expanding
statewide, the My Safe Florida
Home (MSFH) program today
announced it is increasing stan-
dards for participating wind inspec-
tion firms, in a continued effort to
improve the quality of inspections
provided for Florida homeowners.
"After six months of providing
services statewide, the My Safe
Florida Home program is raising
standards and requiring more of
our wind inspectors," said CFO
Sink, who oversees the Department
of Financial Services. "Floridians
interested in hardening their homes
deserve the best customer service
from the highest-quality wind
inspectors available."
After undergoing a quality assur-.
ance review of more than 3,000
randomly-selected inspections and
performing an independently con-
ducted compliance audit, the
MSFH program has renewed con-
tacts with six of the 11 wind inspec-
tion firms to provide free wind
inspections. Contracts for Alltech,
ARA, Don Meyler Inspections,
JVI; Skye Tec and WB Sanders
Inspections will be renewed for
three additional months, effective
October 31, 2007. Inspectors per-
forming free wind inspections
through the MSFH program under

the new contracts will be required
to meet a number of new require-
ments, including:.
Complete the uniform mitiga-
tion form required by insurance
companies for homeowners to be
eligible for discounts on their insur-
ance premiums;
Have a minimum of two years
experience in residential construc-
tion and/or residential inspection
experience or shall be licensed in
good standing as a professional
engineer, architect or building con-
tractor; and
Provide actual measurement
(not an estimate) of window and
door openings.
Additionally, the MSFH program
is required to perform a number of
re-inspections for homeowners
who have received matching grants
for improvements to their homes.
Inspectors will be required to have
a minimum of ten years experience
and participate in additional train-
ing classes before performing these
re-inspections.
Free wind inspections will contin-
ue on a timely basis, as the firms
selected have the capacity to serve
a large number of applicants. The
program is still encouraging more
homeowners to sign up for free
wind inspections to help learn how




We wish to express our sincere

tially save money on their wind
insurance premiums. The MSFH
program will issue a new request
for proposal in November that may
include future increases in program
standards. The MSFH program
resumed offering wind inspections
and expanded statewide this year


after conducting a pilot program
during the previous year; Since
April 2007 the MSFH program has
performed over 111,200 free wind
inspections. More than 13,500
homeowners have been approved
for matching grants and are work-
ing with the MSFH program to
harden their homes.

verse of the weelz:
The neighbors therefore, and they which before had seen him that he was blind, said, Is
not this he that sat and begged? John 9:8 (KJV)

A man sat by a.pool where people would
wait to be healed, and this man was blind
from birth. Jesus passed by this day and saw
the blind man. He explained to the disciples
about how he was blind so that God could do
a work in him.
While Jesus was talking to he spat on the
ground and formed balls from the dirt. Jesus
then placed the mud balls in his eye sockets
and anointed his eyes. After Jesus anointed
him he was told to wash in the pool of Siloam
and he was able to see.
The people who were in the town could
not believe that the man was healed.
Jesus can still heal today!

FUtaly 'Tt Ttime This Weezk:
Read the story of the blind man this week as a Fama4ly.

originates from the Catholic holiday of All Saints Day. This is the 1) 2)
annual celebration of all the Catholic Saints in Heaven. Most of 97 33
these celebrations were agricultural in nature, due to the time of 33 x 3

TCC awarded $493,910 through SUCCEED, Florida!


The Florida Department of
Education has awarded four
SUCCEED, Florida! grants totaling
$493,910 in support of initiatives at
Tallahassee Community College.
The grants will enable TCC to
produce an increased number of
graduates ready to enter the health,
teaching and criminal justice
workforce in Florida.
"These awards will have a strong,
positive impact on the education of
students, and the development of a
highly, trained workforce to meet
community needs," said TCC
President BtU La\.. "We are very
pleased that the Florida Department
of Education chose to support these
programs and look forward to
implementing these initiatives in
collaboration with our valued
partners."
Led by the Gadsden County School
System and in collaboration with the
Pat Thomas Law Enforcement
Academy (PTLEA), Florida
Department of Corrections (FDOC),
Corrections Corporation of America,
Inc. (CCA), WorkForce Plus, Inc.
and other partners, a $75,000 grant
was awarded to establish a new
Leadership & Criminal Justice
Career Academy at East Gadsden
High School. The academy will
'offer programs that lead to
certification in three high-demand,
high-wage fields: correctional
officers, public telecommunications
officers, and private security officers.
PTLEA, located directly across from
East Gadsden High School, will
provide training for the students
leading to certification and
employment in each field.
"This project will provide
meaningful benefits by establishing a
secondary career and' professional
academy that integrates academic
and career curriculum through a
career-based theme," said Dr. Jim
Murdaugh, Director, PTLEA and
Assistant Vice" President for
Economic & Workforce
Development at TCC.
PTLEA is also involved through a
$7t,000 grant to establish a new
Corrections Leadership Career
Academy at West Gadsden High
School. This effort is also led by the
Gadsden County School System, in
collaboration with PTLEA, FDOC,
CCA, WorkForce Plus and other
partners. This project will provide
meaningful benefits by establishing a

PTLEA will provide training for the
students leading to certification and
employment as Correctional
Officers.
"PTLEA looks forward to serving
as a full partner in the new
academies at East Gadsden and West
Gadsden High Schools," Murdaugh
added.
A grant in the amount of $193,910
was awarded to TCC to establish a
new Diagnostic Medical Soiiography
Program. Led by Dr. Lois Ewen,
Dean of Health Care Professions at
TCC, the effort will be in
collaboration with the area's health
care providers. TCC's goal is to
produce highly qualified health care
professionals in the high-wage, high-
demand field of Diagnostic Medical
Sonography. This will be achieved
by establishing a new 16-month
program that leads to a Certificate in


Diagnostic Medical Sonography. The
program will be structured to provide
learning and experience in didactic,
laboratory and clinical settings.
"We are happy to have the ability to
meet another healthcare training
need in our community," said Ewen.
"The SUCCEED, Florida! grant has
allowed us to admit our first class of
students, as well as purchase needed
equipment."
A $150,000 grant will enable TCC
to continue its highly successful
Educator Preparation Institute (PI).
Led by Dr. Monte Finkelstein, Dean
of- History and Soial Sciences at
TCC, the College, in collaboration

Red Ribbon Week Celebration
St. John Elementary School's Assistant
- Principal, Ms. Mia Thomas led the Walk Out On
Drugs Parade and Pep Rally on Wednesday,
October 24, 2007. Red Ribbon Week is a drug
awareness campaign observed annually across the
country the last week in October. Mrs. Cynthia
Hagins, Guidance Counselor, coordinated Red
Ribbon Week. The following activities were pro-
vided; Information Day: Literature was distributed
to faculty, staff, parents and students about drug
awareness and Red Ribbon Week activities. Walk
Out On Drugs Day: The students walked out on
drugs as they paraded around the school. Banners
were made to indicate each grade level and each
grade in a school-wide parade chanted various
cheers saying No to Drugs. Administrators, teach-
ers, cheerleaders, and the entire student body
danced to the theme song "Walk It Out." Wear Red
Rally Day: Faculty, staff, and students wore red
socks to sock it out to alcohol, tobacco and other
drugs. Team Up Against Drugs Day: Faculty, staff,
and students wore team jerseys to team up against
drugs. Throughout the school year more activities
will be planned. Guest speakers will provide the
students with additional knowledge about drugs.
Assisting Mrs. Hagins with this great Red Ribbon
Week initiative was Mrs. Carolyn Green, Mr.
Lamar Kirkland, Mr. David Leporati, Mrs. Paula
Palmer, Mr. Henry Hatten, Mrs. Katherine Lee,
- and classroom teachers. Students received red rib-
- bons, pencils, booklets, candy and many other
items for participation. Raising children in a drug
free community is everybody's responsibility. We
would like to give a special thanks to all of our
supporters especially the Gadsden County Sheriff
Department, Gadsden County Police
Department, Drug Free School Coordinator, Mrs.
Annie Berry and parents for their contributions
during Red Ribbon Week.

The Robert F. Munroe Day School kindergarten classes visited the Quincy
Fire Department on October 11, 2007, as part of their observation of "Fire
Prevention Week." The three, four and five year olds watched a safety film on
fire prevention. The department demonstrated the truck ladder as a form of
rescue in which one fireman "saved" another by using the ladder. "The most
valuable lesson," according to one kindergarten teacher, "was the demonstra-
tion of a fireman in a fire suit with the breathing apparatus. The fear factor
is removed when children see this in a demonstration." The firemen ended
their lessons with a serving of popcorn for the children and a picture in front
of the big, red truck.

A Friendship That Changed the Nation


She. was born on November 12, 1815 in
Johnstown, a small community fifty miles
northwest of Albany, New York. Less than a
year earlier, the War of 1812 had ended,
Thomas Jefferson was a retired President liv-
ing in Virginia, and there were nineteen states.
Eighty-seven years later, when she died,
there were forty-five states, electric lights lit
the streets, a wireless radio signal had crossed
the Atlantic Ocean, and Wilbur and Orville
Wiight were poised to launch the age of flight.
Her name was Elizabeth Cady. A privi-
leged child of Quaker parents, she graduated
from nearby Troy Female Seminary at age
eighteen. Immediately, she began working for
the abolitionist cause, which led her to meet
and marry Henry Stanton when she was
twenty-four.
The couple set up housekeeping in
Boston, where their circle of friends included


poets John Pierpont and John Greenleaf
Whittier, abolitionist Frederick Douglas, and
author Ralph Waldo Emerson. She thrived on
dinner parties, the intellectual stimulation of
friends, and her new children.
In 1847, they moved to Seneca Falls, New
York,which was a small town near Lake Ontario.
it lacked the amenities she had grown to love in
Boston. Elizabeth yearned for intellectual com-
panionship, so a year later she jumped at an
invitation to join her friend Lucretia Mott, and
others, for an afternoon on July 13, 1848. It
became a day that changed the world,
...I poured out, that day, the
torrent of my long-accumulating
discontent, with such vehemence
and indignation that I stirred
myself as well as the rest of the
party, to do and dare anything...
and we decided, then and there,
to call a "Woman's Rights
Convention."
Six days later, Elizabeth
convened a two-day meeting
before a full house at the ElzabethCodySlar
Seneca Foils Con,,te
Methodist church in Seneca rrroughilneLbraro
Falls. From the podium, she
challenged those assembled to help her launch
a social revolution.
... we are assembled... to declare our right to
be free as marn is free. ro be represented in the gov-
ernment which we are taxed to support, to have
such disgraceful laws as give man the power to
chastise and imprison his wife, to take the wages


which she earns, the property which she inherits
laws which make her the mere dependent ron
his bounty. It is to protest against such unjust
laws as these that we.are assembled today ...
And, strange as it may seem to many, we how
demand our right to vote according to (he decla-
ration of the government under which we live.
With the best of intentions, attendees
signed a Declaration of Sentiments modeled on
the Declaration of independence. However,
after the meeting, some lost their enthusiasm:
...so pronounced was the popular voice
against us ... that most of the ladies who had
attended the convention and signed the declaoa-
tion, one by one, withdrew their names and influ-
ence and joined our persecutors.,
Nevertheless, she had
.J planted the seed and conven-
tions for women sprouted
across the country. Three
years later, Elizabeth met
Rochester resident Susan B.
Anthony on a Seneca Falls
street corner. Five years
younger than Elizabeth, they
discovered they shared the
same dream. A lifelong friend-
ron speakngaO ship blossomed and the two

Question Whynot visits Tallavana


EGHS going for FCAT success


\ s. :.. .: .1


The 4-year-old students in Mrs. 'Sarah Glass's class at Tallavana Christian School had a sur-
prise visit from the Early Learning Coalition and their special guest, Question Whynot. The chil-
dren were delighted to have the story of the "Three Little Pigs" read to them by their special vis-
itors. The students were asked questions to develop their comprehension. They were also invited
to ask questions as an early literacy activity. The children enjoyed posing for pictures with
Question Whynot afterwards. TCS would like to thank the Early Learning Coalition for provid-
ing special activities for the community preschoolers.


On the mark, get set, ready
and the jaguars are going for the
goal...that of FCAT success!
Under the leadership of the new
Principal, Mrs. Rosalyn W.
Smith, the administrators, facul-
ty, staff and student body are
focused on making significant
gains in achievement.
On Monday, the sophomore
class and the llth grade Science
students experiencing the high-
est gains for the first Benchmark
Celebration were honored. The
celebration began with opening
congrats from the principal. Mrs.
Smith set the tone by introduc-
tion the theme, "Mint for
Success." Celebrants were
awarded a little gift pack of
mints in honor of their accom-
plishing at least a 5o% gain and
to teachers whose students
excelled.
The Assistant Principal, Mrs.
Edna Hussein-Forehand,
expressed words of congratula-
tion and appreciation for the stu-
dents' hard work. She encour-


aged the students to be as
engaged in FCAT readiness as
they are in sports, band, JROTC
and other Jaguars activities.
Mrs. Carolyn Francis, Reading
Coach, Mrs. Lillie Stokes, Math
Coach and Mrs. Angela Sapp,
Science instructor, shared the
results for the first Benchmark
period. Among those present
was Mrs. Iris Wilson, Deputy
Chancellor for Student
Achievement, Florida
Department of Education. Mrs.
Wilson offered congratulations
and encouragement to the


Jaguars and expressed that she
will deliver their sentiment that
success is eminent with contin-
ued preparation and commit-
ment. The students were excited
about their announced success
and were in quite a festive mood.
These students have pledged
their commitment to success and
their continued practice as they
prepare to "rise to the top." In
keeping with the band's theme
song, these Jaguars admit that
they have fallen down BUT!
They will Get Up! Get Going!
And Get the Job Done!"

Red Ribbon Week at RFM

On Wednesday, October 24, 2007, the Gadsden County Sheriff's
Department presented a program for the middle and upper school
students from Robert F. Munroe Day School in observance of the
drug awareness Red Ribbon Week. Tiffany Parsons Braswell, a
P.F.M. officer and employed by the Sheriff's office, arranged for
deputies, Jim Corder and Billy Buckhalt, along with two women
volunteers to speak to the students about drug addiction and the con-
sequences of drug use. The two women were drug users. One is
presently in jail while the other has been in jail before, but is free at
present. Each talked about her individual use and abuse of drugs,
her life before and after drug addiction, and the constant struggle to
survive. There was a question and answer period following each
talk. Following the assembly Deputy Buckhalt demonstrated the
training of the Drug Dog, Max, for the elementary classes.
Students have worn red ribbons provided by PFM during the week,
and Mrs. Nancy VanLandingham had art students of all ages creat-
ing posters to emphasize awareness. *


Migrant students in the PAEC Migrant Education/ Migrant Even Start Pre-K class and some
of their parents enjoyed a trip to the Forest Hills Methodist Church Pumpkin Patch on October

EGHS MOD


Gadsden Elementary Magnet School's kindergarten and first grade classes went on a walking
field trip last Thursday to the Quincy Fire Station. Students watched a video about fire safety,
toured the fire station, and learned about the various tools firefighters use. Students also received
firefighter hats and firefighter sticker badges. GEMS wishes to express their appreciation to the
Quincy Fire Department for providing this educational experience for our students!


The EGHS Men of Distinction are growing stronger because
of the positive advice and motivation that they are receiving
from motivation that they are receiving from influential males
who are willing to volunteer their time. Pictured left to right are:
Mr. Eric Hinson (School Board Member), LaBrandon Jones,
