Commissioner asks for formal
investigation into recycling issue


By LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor
Several Gadsden County officials are
up in arms o\er the cessation of the
county curbside recycling service.
with others questioning whether items
they sorted and left in bins for
collecuon \%ere ever recycled at all.
District II County Commissioner
Doug Croley said he began to look
into the issue after a number of his
constituents called him to complain


about the situnton.
The Board of County Commissioners
voted Oct. 3 to end the curbside
service and place recycling bins at
county rural wastes sites instead.
But Croley says county workers took
895 tons of recyclable material to the
Decatur County, Ga. Sold Waste
facility from Oct.1-31.

Greensboro woman
receives Purple Heart
for Iraq duty injury

By LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor
What U.S. Army Spc. Gina Chapman lacks in height,
she makes up for in heart.
At 5-foot-3 and weighing around 120 pounds.
Chapman become the 288th woman to receive the
Purple Heart in July at the Army Veterans
Administration Hospital in Augusta, Ga., and the first
female recipients of the Purple Heart at the uptown VA
Hospital.
She and other veterans will march in Monday's
Veterans Day Parade in Tallahassee.
The 25-year-old Greensboro native takes it all in
stride.
After her graduation from Greensboro High School
in 2000, she joined the Army National Guard hoping to
be able to study respiratory therapy at Tallahassee
Community College while serving in the ANG.
"It seemed like a good option," she said. "I knew I
wanted to be in the military."
Chapman volunteered in August, 2006 to go'to Iraq
to fight in the war. She trained at Camp Shelby in
Mississippi.
"I did it for a lot of reasons," she said. "Mainly, I felt
like I wanted to do my part."
While serving in Mosul, Iraq in March, Chapman.
Swho was driving an armored security vehicle on
routine patrol, was injured. The truck drove over an
explosive device, shattering her right foot and a fellow
soldier's left foot. She was in a cast for three months

Officials hope playing cards will help solve crimes


Major James
Morgan of the
Gadsden County
Sheriffs Office
holds some of the
playing cards that
will be distributed in
local jails and
correctional
facilities.


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
Gadsden County has joined law
enforcement officers throughout
the region in a novel approach to
helping solve crimes. In the next
few weeks playing cards will be
distributed in jails and
correctional facilities throughout
the region.
Each of the 52 playing cards
profile homicides and missing
persons from Gadsden, leon and


other counties. In all, according
to Major Morgan, 13 of the 52
cards are people from Gadsden
County.
"Each tells a little about the
case in'hopes that someone will
know something that will help us
solve the crime. This approach
has been very been successful in
south Florida," Morgan said.
The King of Diamonds is the
"unsolved homicide" of Deborah
Jean Copeland. It reads "27 year
old Black Female on 1/29/86


Copeland's, body was found on
the edge of a clay road in
Gadsden County near
Chattahoochee. Copeland's
vehicle, 1980 Pontiac Phoenix,
was located approximately one
mile from where Copeland's
body was found."
The six of Hearts is the
"missing person" of Mary Lou
Bivins. It reads "46-year-old
Black Female was last seen on
6/1/02. Despite her addiction to
alcohol Helen Jackson, the sister


of Bivins, said Mary would
never leave home without telling
anyone,"
At the bottom of each card is
the number of the Big Bend
Crime Stoppers tip line: 1-888-
876-TIPS.
Morgan said the cards will be
distributed in. all of the cells in
the next few weeks.
The cards were paid for by Big
Bend Crime Stoppers at no cost
to the Gadsden County Sheriffs
Office.

and continues with physical
therapy for the injury.
"We were doing a routine
mission," she recalled. "We were on
our way to an Iraqi police station
for transition training and all of the
sudden, a loud explosive went off
under our truck. Everything just
blew off and flew off there were
no brakes left. I could see blood
coming from under my boot."
The third person in the truck, a
gunner, was not seriously injured
due to his location in the truck's
hatch.
The group called for help and was
transported to a medic unit.
Chapman later had to undergo
surgery during which doctors
installed a titanium plate and nine
screws in her foot.


Even so, she's grateful the injury
wasn't worse.
"I thank God it wasn't any worse.
I \yas very, very fortunate," she
said. "I was blessed. I've seen
worse believe me."
Chapman, who has a 7-year-old
son, Jordan, said she thought about
her family during the first few
moments after the explosion.
"I was thinking about family,
thinking, 'I've got to live because
I've got to be there for my son,'"
she said.
Chapman's father, William
Alexander, told her he was proud of
her decision to go to Iraq.
"He thought it was very
courageous of me he really
supported me," she said.
Her mother, Sarah Williams, is


proud of her as well, as is her
brother, Joshua Chapman.
Chapman says she has not yet
decided whether she will re-enlist
after her term in the Army is up in
June.
She readily acknowledges it was
difficult to be away from her son.
But she is also passionate about
her career in the military.
"A lot of females don't do the
kind of work I do it kind of sends
a statement," she said of her being
given the Purple Heart. "Female
soldiers can do just as much I was
doing raids and searches. And
there's another side: I like to be in
the middle of action and
adventure."
Her hopes are to finish her degree
at TCC and go back in as an officer.


Program offers home inspections


by ALICE DU PONT-
Times Editor

As Hurricane Noel, a late-season
event, churned around in the ocean
last week, residents were again
reminded to take the opportunity to
participate in a free program
designed to protect Floridians'
homes from damages caused by
hurricanes.
The My Safe Florida Program
was created by the state Legislature
in 2006 to help Floridians
strengthen their homes against
hurricanes. Local residents, who
meet the criteria, may be eligible
for a free wind inspection which
will tell them how to best protect
their homes. Also, if they meet
certain requirements they can be
eligible to apply for a matching
grant of up to $5,000, according to
Arthur Youngblood, outreach
coordinator in the Bureau of
Consumer Assistance in the Florida
Department of Financial Services.
, Unfortunately, only a few people
in Gadsden County have taken
advantage of the free program
because, Youngblood said, people
here don't really believe a hurricane
will hit. Only 21 people have
applied for the program, he said,
with 16 having had inspections
completed.
"The Florida Legislature has paid
for 400,000 inspections, but if they
aren't used they will probably cut it
to about half when the program
comes up for renewal," Youngblood
said.
The inspections are conducted by
trained and certified wind
engineers.


However, the inspections are only
available to Floridians living in
single-family, site built homes.
Following the inspection the
homeowner will be issued a report
which will:
*summarize and identify
recommended improvements.
*provide cost estimates to make
those improvements.
*provide potential premium
discount information. (if
homeowner provided insurance
information when they applied)
based on current structure of home
or if improvements are made.
*a hurricane resistance rating
specific to the home as is and a
projected score if improvements are
made.
Youngblood said that as many as
70 percent of the people who

receive the free wind inspection are
eligible for discounts on their wind
insurance premium without making
a single improvements.
Most people, however, save an
average of about $150 per year on
insurance premiums.
To be eligible for the program, the
homeowner must have a home that:
*has a building permit application
for initial construction made before
March 1, 2002.
*has insured value of $300,000 or
less.
*has a valid homestead exemption
*is located in the wind-borne
debris region.
*has undergone a hurricane
mitigation inspection.
.The matching grants can be used
only for window and door opening
protections (including garage doors)
and bracing gable ends.


According to information
provided by Youngblood, 1,601
people have received
reimbursements totaling $5.2
million dollars since the program
began and more than 12,918
homeowners have been approved to
make improvements to their homes
and received a.matching grant once
the work has been completed.
"This program is free with no
strings attached. It will help people
harden their homes against
hurricane damage," Youngblood
said. He said everyone, who meets
the requirements, should sign up for
a free wind inspection by calling '1-
866-513-6734 or
www.MySafeFloridaHome.com It
takes about two weeks to set up the
actual inspection.

'A free exchange of ideas is necessary lor good government and good connfiini'iLities.


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

Contemplation




Coffee and art: A good combo


Several months ago when I heard that the
Gadsden Arts Center was considering a
coffee shop, I thought it was a great idea. I
had seen on television in other cities where
galleries were going the same route to allow
patrons the opportunity to sit and have a cup
of tea or coffee and enjoy the art work.
There are many restaurants nationwide
that have local art works, on a rotating
basis, in spaces dedicated to showcasing art.
I thought someone had a good idea because
I have been downtown on at least 20 times
when visitors to the center or people on the
historic walking tour have asked me on
Saturday afternoon where they can get a
nice sandwich or salad and something cold
or hot to drink.
Last year, I had meeting on Saturday
around lunch with a reporter from the
Miami Herald. Our meeting lasted about an
hour and before leaving; he said "I'd like to
see more of Quincy, but I didn't have any
breakfast, where can I pick up something
light?" he asked.
All I could name was all of the fast food
restaurants.that line U.S. Highway 90,
starting with Hardees. I felt like we were
small, hick town. He then said he'd go on
back to Tallahassee.
I wished I could have steered him to a nice


little place where he could get something
good to eat so that when he went back to
Miami, he would say he had lunch at this
terrific little cafe inside this beautiful
gallery in Quincy. Those are the kinds of
comments that get more people coming
here to spend a morning, afternoon or a day
seeing what we have to offer.
Just as I was waiting to find out when the
gallery cafe was going to open I as
informed that the whole idea was back to
square one. I was disappointed. I don't
know why the powers that are in charge of
such things want to re-think the concept but
I seems as if, around here, once an idea
goes back to the drawing board, it is close
to never happening.
Those who don't want cafe must have a
good reason, at least for them, but some
galleries have become asfamous for their
fine cuisine as they have for their exhibits.
In some cities, the gallery has become a
destination for both fine dining and fine art.
I'm not saying that we are ready for a five
star restaurant but I think we ought to be
able to accommodate a cafe with bagel and
a cup of green tea.
Please don't let this idea go the way that so
many other good ideas for downtown have
gone.,


Veterans Day is upon us again.
And I'm sitting here thinking about Trudy
Sullivan. And '56 Chevrolets. Archie
Moore's pond. Buddy Wiggleton. John
Motheral's Drugstore. Ricky Hale and
Charlotte Melton. Lord, I think about
Charlotte Melton a lot.
I've heard Mother say a thousand times that
she raised her sons at the exact best time on
earth to be "growing off' children.."The war
(she was referring to World War II) was over.
The other thing (she meant Viet Nam) hadn't
started yet. It was such a peaceful, perhaps
naive, but almost idyllic time for bringing up
three boys."
Mother was thankful.
I just enjoyed it.When Vicki Fields was
chasing us across the elementary school
playground we weren't studying on world
wide peace or economic freedom or what
went on in the Argonne Forrest in 1918!
Shucks, we were trying to outrun the stigma
of being caught by a girl! I hopped oi. the
monkey bars and stuck out my tongue at Pam
Collins. I tackled Jimmy Mabry when he tried
to run past.me...... You ask any American
soldier that went off to war and he will tell
you that is exactly what they were fighting
for!
We didn't have a clue. Mr. Ross Fletcher's
right arm was cut off up above the elbow. We
didn't think nothing about it. None of us had
ever seen him any other way. Besides, he
could do the work of two men even with the
handicap. He'd sit up on the front porch of
Woodrow Kennon's store and roll a smoke
with his good arm and tell you about how tall
his corn "was looking" and how much his
cotton "would make" come September.
We'd never heard of Guadalcanal. And it
never dawned on us that Mr. Fletcher had
ever left the county.
You talk about running through fields of
clover! Our whole world was "a Saturday
night dance, a bottle of Coke and the joy that
the blue birds bring". By junior high I was
chasing Vicki Fields. We played baseball on
that lot down by the pajama factory until
somebody had to go home to milk. And one
fall day, walking home after school, I kissed
Charlotte right on the mouth!
I knew my Father had been in the war. That
old ugly green jacket with the ribbons and
stars stuck to it hung in their closet. He.never
said anything. And we figured that's just what
fathers were supposed to do.....go off to war
and things.
Bobby Brewer would come over and we'd
explore down by the big ditch. Or hitch a ride
out tothe Dairy Bar. I was sitting right behind
him in English when he told Miss Bryant he
didn't have to listen to her! He had rights!
This was a free country! She whipped him. I
think maybe the principal whipped him. And I
know he got whipped when he got home.
We certainly had rights. We just weren't
sure where they came from. Or how this
country maintained them.....Bobby sure


didn't know didly about how to use them!
The old men would come to the school in
November. They had these funny long narrow
hats that were the same color as Dad's army
jacket. The whole school--- high school,
junior high and elementary--- would turn out
'by the flag pole. Somebody would give a talk,
the band would play The Star Spangled
Banner and these older guys would fire a little
toy cannon. Miss Carolyn had taught us back
in the first grade that it was Armistice Day.
We liked it mostly because we got out of
class. Reading in a book about storming a
German entrenchment was not like being
there..... Besides it was just Mr. Jack'Cantrell
and Red Melton and Mr. Cannon and a few
others that lived in the community.
Please don'tjudge us too harshly. Even by
high school, when we were old enough to
start to understand, we were just too busy
enjoying our freedoms to worry about how
we got them.....or who died to keep them for
us.
Every day was a blast! It was a world of
football games, basketball practice and long
bus rides back from field trips to Mammoth
Cave and Paris Landing. We learned to drive.
We enjoyed Elvis, Carl Perkins and the
Coasters. We threw spitballs in Latin. Me and
Jane Hill would split a cherry Coke at
Motheral's Drugstore. School was the perfect
backdrop for our on-going escapades.....
It was as far as you could get from Omaha
Beach. Or the Burma Road. Or the Bridge at
Remagen. We had never heard of Mt.
Suribachi or Palawan Island.
We knew that Ronald Jenkins had no father.
And somewhere in my memory bank I
remember that he had died in the war. I also
remember that Mrs. Jenkins struggled to make
ends meet. I remember that Ronald didn't
spend much time at the Dairy Bar. His clothes
might have been a "step" behind ours. And in
an era when we all were required to work, he
did more than his share.....
I regret that I don't know the details of how
and where Mr. Jenkins fell.
And, looking back, that's not my only
regret. I wish I had paid more attention to the
speaker on Armistice Day. I wish I'd looked
more closely at those stars and ribbons on
Daddy's jacket. I wish I had bought Mr.
SFletcher a Dr. Pepper.....and thanked him. I
wish now I had stopped the baseball game
and went up in the stands and hugged Mr.
Jack Cantrell. I wish I'd bought a boiled egg
down at the City Caf6 and given it to Mr.
Melton. I wish I'd invited Ronald over to
eat ......
I should have done something!
I let those veterans down. But you know
what? They'd gladly do it over for me.
Without hesitating! I'm the guy they go off to
war for!

Bless'em All,
Kes

What comes around, goes around


There are more rumors swirling
around Gadsden County's recycling
program than Rex Reed could shake a
stick at.
There may have only been slightly
more than 1,000 folks in the county
that took advantage of curbside
recycling, but boy, do they feel
strongly about it.
Interestingly enough, 93 percent of
those who subscribe to curbside
recycling live in the Quincy and
Havana areas, according to Gadsden
County Commissioner Doug Croley.
He sees the decision to cut curbside
recycling as a political one, since the
two districts hit hardest by the cut are
his and Commissioner Eugene Lamb's.
Incidentally, the same two
commissioners lent strong support to
beefing up the sheriff s budget in order
to secure funding for raises for
deputies and improvements to the jail.
During a Havana Town Council
meeting last week, council member
Olive Collins called the county's Oct.
3 decision to phase outicurbside
recycling by the end of the year a
disgrace.
Others on the board had similar
opinions.
Although Solid Waste Management
and Recycling Director Anthony
Powell says recycling bins will be set
up at rural waste collection sites,
several on the board noted making a

trip to drop off a couple of cans or a
week's worth of newspapers would
occur only among the most dedicated
of recyclers.
It's inconvenient, even if it is
technically legal according to state
statutes governing recycling. Powell
could not be reached for comment

around you by recycling, check out

Click on the button tabbed
"coversionator" and you can see what
happens when you recycle, say five
plastic bottles per week that's
enough fiber to make 52 t-shirts per
year. If you recycle four Sunday
newspapers per month, you'll save
four trees per year.
But if you take all that stuff to a
landfill in Decatur County, Ga., all
you've done is haul it out of state.
And that's exactly what happened to
218 truckloads bearing 895 tons of
sorted and unsorted recyclables during
the month of October.
The practice jeopardizes several
grants available from the state
Department of Environmertal
Protection and, generally speaking,
makes local folks who have faithfully
sorted their newspapers and coke cans
feel as though they've been duped.

Dear Editor:
After reviewing a letter dated October 22, 2007, from
Marion Brown, Gadsden County Manager, regarding the
discontinuance of the recycling program, I spoke with
Department of Environmental Protections's Ron Henricks,
and he informed me that the County has reversed their
decision on the waste recycling (not the curb side pick up).
That's a big DUH, considering the County has already
received $277, 316 in Small County Solid Waste
Management Grant monies for 2007/2008, and the County
would have to pay these funds back to the State if the
program was discontinued. The interesting fact is that Mr.
Henricks told me that he and his staff had personally.
informed Anthony Powell, the Director of the Solid Waste
and Recycling, more than once about the consequences of
discontinuing the recycling program before the
Commissioners voted to discontinue the program. Either
Mr. Powell did not inform the Commissioners or County
Manager, or those that were informed chose to ignore the
information. Mr. Henricks said he was totally surprised
when he found out that the Commissioners voted to
discontinue the program in light of the information he
provided to Mr. Powell, and that is why he wrote the
October 25 letter to Mr. Powell informing him in writing of
the consequences. This brings up the question, why did the
County Attorney and County Manager not already know the
ramifications of discontinuing the program? Did they do
any research prior to bringing this before the Commissioners?
Due to current budget constraints, I would like to know how
much in salaries, legal fees, postage, etc., did the ill fated
decision to end the recycling program cost the County.
I believe that the Recycling Program had a $300,000
surplus at the end of2004. Since the new administration has
taken over, salaries and benefits have gone from $92,799 in
2005 to $163,216 in 2006 and up to $201,783 in 2007. It
is my understanding that the program actually lost $109,648
in 2006! In the month of October 2007 alone, the County
paid Decatur County, Georgia, $26,427 to dump 895.74
tons of recyclable materials in their dump, rather than
recycling the materials. It is hard to believe that prior to the
current administration, that the Gadsden County's recycling
program was at one time a model for the State, per Mr.
Henricks.
Sincerely,
Jimmy Ashmore
Editor,
As I read Against All Odds, the Dean Mitchell Story by
Betty James, the corners of my mind wrapped "Pepper Hill",
the place where Dean and I grew up. This. poignant,
provocative, pleasurable, non-fiction reading not only targets
the young but also the old, not only the Blacks bur also the
Whites, the Hispanics, the Jews the Gentiles-the gamut of
the whole human race. None of us are immune to difficulties
during or trek here on earth. The key is to use what has been
given to toto go over them, under them, around them or
through them. We must get to the other side as Dean did!
Mrs. James in her labor of love captured so many themes:
sick-to-it-ness, humility, endurance, family ties, etc. This is a
must for every library (be it school, home, church, or public)
and should sit right in the midst of other encouraging
reading to inspire us when we face life's obstacles. My hat
goes ofto you, Mrs. James!

Honoring


veterans,


today and


tomorrow

By Congressman Allen Boyd
(D-FL)

Each November 11th, our country
comes together to honor the
millions of brave men and women
who have served our country in
uniform. Veterans Day gives us the
opportunity to express our
collective gratitude to the 24
million veterans in America for
their noble service to our country
and reaffirm our commitment to
them. We also must remember that
our troops currently serving in Iraq,
Afghanistan, and around the world
will become the veterans of
tomorrow. Our support for these
men and women does not end once
they return home. Our nation has a
proud legacy
of
appreciation
to the men "
and women
who have
worn the
uniform in,
defense of this ,
county. We
must be united in seeing that every
soldier, sailor, airman, and marine
is welcomed back with all the care
and compasion our grateful
counn'y can'besto\.
In Washingi6n, I am working
hard to keep the promises we have
made to our veterans. This year,
Congress passed legislation to
increase the Department of .
Veterans Affairs (VA) budget by
$6.7 billion above the 2007 level,
the largest increase in our nation's
history. Included in the House-
passed fiscally responsible budget,
the proposed increase will provide
the VA with a total of $43.2 billion
for medical care and veterans'
health programs. The bill also
'provides additional claims
processing personnel and facility
improvements so that veterans will
receive better healthcare, more
mental health and post-traumatic
stress disorder services, and shorter
waiting times for doctors'
appointments. '
At home, I also am working to
make sure that the critical needs of
our veterans are addressed. Earlier
this year, I announced that a new
community-based outpatient clinic
(CBOC) will be coming to Jackson
County. This new clinic is an
extraordinary victory for our
veterans in North Florida.
Currently, veterans in Jackson
County and surrounding areas must
travel to Panama City, Tallahassee,
Lake City, Pensacola, or Biloxi,
Mississippi, for their healthcare
needs, resulting in long travel times
and overcrowding at these facilities.
The VA anticipates that 3,574
existing patients and 310 new.
patients will be treated at the new
CBOC in Jackson County.
Veterans in Jackson County and
surrounding areas have traveled too
far, for too long, to get the
healthcare they need and deserve,
and the new clinic will ensure that
North Florida's veterans have more
convenient access to proper
medical care.
We are making great strides to
provide our veterans with first-rate
and uncompromised benefits. As a
combat veteran myself, I am proud
of the work we are doing in
Congress to fulfill our moral
obligation to those who have
defended our great country.
However, our work is far from
over. In 2008, the number of
veterans receiving treatment is
expected to include over 300,000
men and women returning from
Iraq and Afghanistan. We must
prepare to care for the veterans of
current conflicts by seriously
addressing the long term healthcare
needs of our combat veterans.


As thousands more soldiers come
back from Iraq and Afghanistan, it
is our duty to provide sufficient
resources so that our veterans can
receive the quality care they were
promised and deserve.

Times Editor

A man witnesses told police
was an innocent bystander is in
intensive care at Tallahasee
Memorial Hospital with life-
threatening injuries suffered
Sunday Night at Gadsden Arms


Apartments.
Glenn Holley, 36, was taken
by Life Flight to TMH after he
was allegedly beaten with a
crowbar and baseball bats
Sunday around 6:30 p.m. When

on the ground in the parking lot
outside of the laundry room area.


According to a report released
by the Quincy Police
Department, a juvenile provided
information that Alton Gordon
,22, his brother Billy Gordon, Jr.
,25, Rufus Campbell III, 25, and
a juvenile came to the public
housing complex and began
swinging a bat. The problem,


according to the report, started at
the posts complex when the juve-
nile was attacked by a group
referred to as "The Project
Boys". The juvenile then tele-
phoned his cousin, Alton
Gordon, and asked him to pick
him up. The juvenile, the Gordon
brothers and a cousin and the


four then decided to go the
Gadsden Arms apartments to
exact revenge. When they could
not find the young men they were
looking for, they began swinging
on anyone in the area. The
juvenile has been charged with
one count of felony aggravated
battery. Alton Gordon, Billy


Gordon, Jr. and Campbell have
all been charged with one count
each of aggravated battery with a
deadly weapon. Alton Gordon
has also been charged with one
count of contributing to the
delinquency of a minor and one
count of conspiracy to commit
aggravated battery.


Lawsuit by mayor pro ter causes cancellation of Midway meeting


By LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor

Midway city officials can-
celled an Oct. 25 meeting during
which they were to determine
whether Mayor Pro Tem Ella
Barber should be removed from
office for missing meetings after
city attorneys advised against it.
Assistant city attorney Larry
White said city attorney John
Williams needed time to review
a lawsuit Barber filed against
the city in early October to
determine whether holding the


meeting was advisable.
In a complaint filed Oct. 4,
Barber's attorneys ask for
declaratory judgment and
injunctive relief.
Midway's city charter calls
for the removal of a council
member who "fails to attend
three regular meetings of the
city council without being
excused by the city council."
Barber's argument is that the
charter does not define excused
or unexcused absences, and that
even if'it did, it does not provide
a procedure for removing a


council member accused of hav-
ing unexcused absences.
Barber's complaint seeks "a
declaration that the lack of pro-
cedures with respect to 'unex-
cused' and 'excused' absences
violates due process of law and
renders Section 2.2(d)(2) of the
charter invalid.
The complaint also opposes a
public hearing as a method of
determining whether Barber
should be removed from office.
"Plaintiff's rights, status or
other equitable or legal relations
are affected by defendant's


action," the complaint states.
"Plaintiff is in doubt as to her
rights and status in light of the
contemplated actions of the City
Council. There is a bona fide,
actual, present practical need for
a determination as to the validi-
ty of Section 2.2(d)(2) of the
charter in this instance because
the requisite rules and proce-
dures are not in place. There is a
present dispute between the City
and the plaintiff as to the validi-
ty of the contemplated actions of
the City Council."
Barber's attorneys filed a

Curbside recycling, and the
discontinuation of the program,
has some of the 1,200 customers
upset. Several came before the
Board of County Commission
Tuesday night during the regular
meeting to voice their displeas-
ure.
But Commissioner Ed Dixon
appeared to be more angry at
what he saw as a campaign by
Commissioner Doug Croley to
make the board action appear
harmful to the county.
"When things go to
Tallahassee Commissioner


Croley is always at the bottom
of it. When there is someone in
Tallahassee asking for an inves-
tigation, at the bottom of it is
Commissioner Croley. I'm at a
loss. Commissioner Croley
called Department of
Environmental Protection. Stop
covering for Croley and his dirty
deeds," Dixon said.
When the 17 budget cuts,
which were made to save the
county $1.8 million dollars, the
curbside recycling program was
one of the casualties. All agreed,
however, that when the end of
year close out was completed
the cut items would be revisited
to decide which could be saved.


County Judge Steward
Parsons, addressing the BoCC
as a private citizen, said he is
concerned about discontinuing
recycling. He called it a step
"backward."
But the county is not discon-
tinuing recycling, only the curb-
side service. Residents will be
able to take their recycling to
bins provided at solid waste
sites throughout the county.
Parsons also expressed con-
cern that the county will lose the
state-funded recycling grant
In a letter dated October 31,
from Ron Hendricks, environ-
mental administrator in the
Waste Reduction Section of


DEP said the county's proposal
to use the recycling collection
bins is in compliance with the
state's requirements and will
have no effect on current or
future grant eligibility.
Dixon said that recycling is
only about one percent of the
county's waste. "No one wants
to talk about garbage. One mil-
lion tons of garbage are gener-
ates from 13,000 households.
What I want to know is what
other (people who don't get
garbage pickup) are doing with
their garbage," he said.
Parsons volunteered to sit on
a committee to address the prob-
lem.


Local author to hold book-signing in Havana


Regina N. Lewis, local
author of two children's books,
The Smallest Toy Store, A
Christmas Story and The
Smallest Schoolhouse will be
at the Gadsden Arts Center,
Sunday, November 11, 2007
from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. for a


HOSPITAL from Page 1


Commissioner Doug Croley
said that trying to operate a
hospital with five or ten beds is
not feasible unless the county can
get the critical access designation.
That designation calls for the
nearest hospital to be a minimum
of 35 miles away from another
facility. Gadsden Community
does not met that requirement
because of the proximity
Tallahassee Memorial and
Tallahassee Regional. Prior to
closing to closing, the hospital
was grandfathered in because of
its rural location, but once the
hospital closed it lost that
designation. Now commissioners,
the state and federal.legislative
delegations have been pressing to
get the designation re-instated.
Commission Ed Dixon
suggested that commissioners
might want to name a
management company so that the
federal agency that decides
critical access will take the board
action as a sign of the
community's expectation that a
hospital here would thrive.
"I feel if we had a hospital that
can provide the services needed,
we could serve people
everywhere," said
Commissioners Eugene Lamb.
He said that if the service is good
people would come from all over
to use the facility. He said he
would only support a facility that
is first class.
County Attorney Thornton
Williams said the non-selection
of a management company by the
commission might send the
wrong message to the Centers for
Medicare and Medicaid Services
(CMS). The (Federal) agency is
the difference between the
hospital getting approximately $2
million annually in federal
reimbursements. That money
could mean the difference in
opening the hospital or not.
"A non-selection sends the
message the we don't think it (the
hospital) will work," Williams
said.
The financial stability of Alliant
Management Services also came
up during the discussion.
McMillan said Alliant was
reluctant to release financial


information because most of the
assets were the personal assets of
the Board of Directors.
SDixon said that if all,else fails
and the county cannot re-open the


hospital, a super emergency room
is a viable alternative. He said he
had a super emergency room in
south Florida and that it works.

RECYCLING from Page 1


environmental administrator
Ron Henricks, Croley asked for a
formal investigation of the
matter.
"Given the above situation and
the fact that some additional
loads of recycle materials were
taken to the Quincy/Byrd
Landfill, the level of public
dissatisfaction and the state grant
funds involved, as District II
Gadsden County Commissioner,
I request that DEP conduct a
financial and legal audit of the
Gadsden County Recycle
Program, the Solid Waste
Program, the Hazardous Waste
Disposal Program and any other
such programs funded with State
of Florida DEP grant monies."
Henricks said Tuesday he's
looking at all sides of the debate,
and that he is waiting to hear
,back from Gadsden County
Waste Management and
Recycling Director Anthony
Powell.
Powell, who was hired eight


months ago, had not responded
to Henricks' request as of
Tuesday. He could not be
reached for comment for this
story.
In his email to Powell,
Henricks wrote, "Over the last
few days, I've heard a rumor that
Gadsden County has been taking,
or is going to take, all of the
recyclable materials from its
recycling center and dispose
them in a landfill. If that rumor is
.untrue, I would like to be able to
refute it the next time I hear it. Is
it true? Has the county been
disposing materials collected for
recycling?"
Henricks' main concern, he said
Tuesday, is "how long has it been
occurring and will it continue to
occur. It's not a good thing to do,
but if this is a one-time
occurrence we might slap them
on the wrist and say, 'Go and sin
no more.'
Henricks also theorized county
officials were unsure as to how to


dispose of recyclables, which are
required by state law to be taken
to a recycling processing facility.
"Bottom line is, I've sent
questions to the county and I
want to give them a chance to
respond," Henricks said.
But Henricks said an
investigation of the issue by DEP
is likely, and noted some
discrepancies in the amount of
recyclable items gathered during
the past two years. In 2005,
Gadsden County disposed of
2,800 tons of recyclable items. In
2006, the number dropped to 17
tons. Recycling processing
facilities are required to track
where recyclable items come
from.
"That obviously raises the
question whether the county had
a recycling program at all,"
Henricks said. "The statute is
very clear we have to impose
some kind of financial penalty if
recycling requirements are not
met."

Quincy eyeing Comprehensive Plan for annexation


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

No property will be annexed
into the Quincy city limits
before the first city commission
meeting in December.
Following a Monday night
workshop on the
Comprehensive Plan.
Commissioners agreed that the
plan must be approved before
they consider annexation.
There is one more public
hearing on the Comprehensive
Plan, November 13, before the
commissioners can vote. In the
meantime, a copy of the
Comprehensive Plan is on file in


the city's Planning Deperment in
City Hall, for citizens to read.
The public has the opportunity
to check out a copy to read else-
where.
While several developers
have been forced to their plans
put on hold, commissioners said
they wanted to get the
Comprehensive Plan straight
once and for all so that it would
be a document that serves the
entire city. Annexation of sever-
al properties on Strong Road is
the reason the plan was held up
when presented to commission-
ers several weeks ago.
Commissioners said they had
not had an opportunity to review


or discuss (at length) the docu-
ment and decided not to approve
it's transmission to the
Department of Community
Affairs.
Instead, they opted to
request and extension and
review the document almost
page by page.
Commissioners learned
Monday night that the popula-
tion in Quincy started to drop in
the 1970s and became stagnant
about five years ago. In short,
Quincy is experiencing no
growth in population.
Development, therefore, is
cricual but commissioners want
to make sure the growth is


planned.
Commissioner Derrick Elias
said a lot of the Comprehensive
Plan was staff decision and not
the commission.
Commissioners also dis-
cussed how the city could
remove non-conforming uses
from existing neighborhoods.
A case in point is a nightclub
in the middle of a residential
area. Ciy Attorney Jack McLean
suggested commisisoners come
up with a policy and incentives
to encourage the nightclub own-
ers to move out of the area.
The Comprehensive Plan
will be addressed again on
November 13 at 6 p.m.

Panthers take another one-point win over Liberty County


Sby JOE FEROLITO
Times Sports Editor

There's a couple of things for
certain when West Gadsden and
Liberty Co. meet in their annual
football game. The game will be
hard hitting and played in front
of a good crowd.
And it's always close. One
point close. For the fourth year
in a-row the Panthers slipped by
the Bulldogs by a single point,
winning 20-19 in Bristol Friday


night.
For the first 10 minutes of the
game it looked like it would be
anything but close.
Liberty County scored the
first time they had the ball on a
long drive capped by Kevin
McCray's 14-yard scoring run.
The Bulldogs kicked the extra
point making it 7-0.
The Panthers lost the ball on
the ensuing kick-off, and it
looked like it would be another
Liberty Co. touchdown. West


Gadsden held on downs on that
drive, but on their next posses-
sion here came the Bulldogs
again.
The Panthers Marvin Home
ended that drive with a 70-yard
pass interception return for a
touchdown. Jose Calderon's pat
kick tied it at 7. It stayed tied
until early in the third quarter.
That's when the Panthers
took the lead as Anthoney Hubert
took another interception to the
house. This one came from 33-


yards out. Another Calderon kick
made it 14-7 Panthers.
Liberty Co. answered that
score with a long march that fin-
ished with a 7-yard touchdown
pass from Ridge Read to
Leonard DuBuisson. The
Bulldogs failed on the extra point
though and West Gadsden still
led 14-13.
The Panthers relinquished the
lead on Liberty Co.'s next pos-
session as Read again hooked up
with DuBuisson for a score, this


time from 8-yards out. Again the
pat attempt failed and it was 19-
14 Bulldogs.
Before the quarter was over it
was 20-19 the Panther's way
because Home got his second
touchdown of the night on a 32-
Syard pass from Antonio Bostic
who did a nice scramble job to
find Home. This time the
Panthers missed the pat leaving it
20-19 with a quarter to go.
Liberty Co. threatened three
times in the final quarter but


West Gadsden held them. off
behind their defense led by
Jabari Davis, Gary Brown, Leroy
Smith, Jessie Winbush and
Home.
"It was another close one,"
Head Panther nian Robert
Jackson said. "It's always tough
playing Liberty Co. and I'm glad
to get any kind of win against
them."
The season ended for West
Gadsden with that game, giving
the Panthers a 5-5 season record.

It's the last thing coaches,
administrators or officials want to
see at a high school football game.
A fight.
: One broke out Thursday night
:at Cony Field with just over three
minute left in the Godby-East
Gadsden District 2-3A tilt.
" The game was spirited all
eight as Godby built up a 20-0
halftime lead and had stretched it
to 29-0 before Lance Ray caught a


45-yard throw from Eduardo
Torres for a touchdown. Darius
Davis then ran in a 2-point con-
version off a fumbled pat snap.
That's when a skirmish started,
and after things were restored it
was decided to end the game.

EAST GADSDEN
Last week: The Jaguars lost 29-8 to
district rival Godby in a game that was
called with three minutes left due to a fight
that broke out following East Gadsden's
scoring.
This week: The Jaguars close their
,season.at Monticello meeting Jefferson'
Co. in a 7:30 pm game.
SLast year: The two teams did not


meet.
What to look for: East Gadsden will
probably put the ball in the air quite a bit
as quarterback Eduardo Perez has thrown
for over 300 yards total in the past two
games.
Jefferson Co. rallied from a 16-0
deficit last week -to overcome a good
Trenton team 28-22. Quarterback Jatavin
Bennett and runner Lucius Wade spark the


Tigers offense.
WEST GADSDEN
Last week: The Panthers Marvin'
Home scored an offensive and a defensive
touchdown and West Gadsden took
advantage of seven Libeety Co. turnovers
to defeat the Bulldogs 20-19. It was the
fourth straight year a Robert Jackson team
has defeated Liberty Co. by a point. It was


the final game of the year for West
Gadsden. They finished the season with a
5-5 mark.
MUNROE
Last week: FAMU used a 21 point
second quarter on their way to a 41-6 win
over the Bobcats.
This week: Munroe closes out their
season hosting Gainesville St. Francis


Catholic at 7:30 pm Friday at Corry Field.
Last year: The teams did not play
each other.
What to look for: St. Francis is in it's
first year with a varsity program.
Munroe's line has played better the last
two games because they have been health-
ier. Solid offensive and defensive games
by the line could help the Bobcats close
the season on a nifty note.

into the match, I told the team
that this was going to be the
toughest match they played all
season, not because St. Francis
was better than us, but because
this was the playoffs and we
were on their court." The Lady
Cats did not heed his warning
and as a result played their worst
match of the season at the worst
possible time.
St. Francis disposed quickly
of the Lady Cats team in a
match lasting less than one hour.
The Wolves won 25-8,25-7,25-
9. The Lady Cats were never
able to mount any serious threat
with most of St. Francis' points
coming off of Munroe miscues.
"If you look at our stats, of
the 75 points they scored, half of
them came from our own errors
of either hitting the ball out of
bounds, misserves, or some-


thing else," said Coach Blake.
"It doesn't matter who you play,
if you make all those errors, you
will lose and that's what hap-
pened."
Stats were few and far
between but seniors Jill Purvis
and Crystal Wade combined for
five kills, three blocks and
eleven digs. Wade also served
two aces.
The Lady Cats finished a
record breaking season at 20-8
with only one loss at home the
entire season. They lose three
excellent starters whose experi-
ence and skills will be difficult
to replace Jill Purvis, Crystal
Wade and Malorie McKinnon.


The Loomis Bros. Circus sponsored by Quincy ParKS anI Kecreation Department came to
town for the second time on Thursday, November 1, 2007 at the William Inman Agricultural
Center (Livestock Pavilion). Approximately 700 spectators attended the two shows. Performances
included the Performing Elephants, Performing Tigers, Head Balancing Trapeze, Acrobats,
Unicyclists, Circus Clown, Fantasy of Birds, Hula Hoop Expertise, Rola Bola from Mexico City,
and an Arial Cradle Performer. The kids even had opportunities to go on elephant's rides. The
Loomis Bros. Circus offered great family fun for everyone and proved to be bigger and better
than ever!

Dear Gadsden, Liberty, Wakulla & Calhoun
County Residents,
Three years ago I obtained my Florida

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 $6uuu profm
on a $10,000 automobile.

MNI mother had leukemia and
she was given many units of
blood. When people asked us
how they could help with my
mother, we told them they
could give blood. One of my
co-workers then called and set
up the first blood drive at
Focus Credit Union in
Chattahoochee. Now we have
drives also at our Quincy loca-
tion. This is a wonderful way
for people to help.

November 10th would have been Nell Davis Hodges'
72nd birthday. This year marks the 21st anniversary of
her lost battle to Leukemia. Our mother lived in
Quincy most of her life. She loved the people and the
landscape of her hometown. She always expressed how
fortunate she was to have the close friends and family
she did; and instilled in her children an appreciation for
our heritage as well.
As Thanksgiving approaches, we are sending this note to Quincy to express our
thankfulness for the years of support and genuine sincerity from its people. We want
Quincy to know we have not forgotten what you mean to our family and want to say
most humbly, thank you Quincy from the children of Nell Davis Hodges.
Her son, Ben Hodges appreciates all of the support you have shown him and the
troops that defend this nation. We are proud to announce that Ben has made General
and his official pinning is scheduled for some time this winter. His wife, Holly and
their two children Madeline and Benjamin are doing great living in the D.C. area
where Ben works as a legislative liaison at the Pentagon.
Katie Tucker continues to excel in the real estate market and has increased her terri-
tory as a broker to include not only North Florida, but South Georgia as well. She is
also proud of her daughter, Lyndsey who is a senior at Lawton Chiles High School in
Tallahassee. Phyllis Zinn is busy in Colorado Springs, Colorado raising two daugh-
ters Hanna and Jessie with husband, Mark. She recently completed a cookbook ded-
icated to our mother, and is working to publish it for resale.
Nella Dickens continues to follow in the footsteps of our grandfather, Philip C. Davis.
She is a Vice President of Commercial Banking with SunTrust in Tallahassee. She
and husband, Jimmy recently celebrated the 1st birthday of their son, Jed. Our father,
Fred Hodges resides at the V.A. Domiciliary in Lake City, Florida.
We are interested in hearing from our mother's friends and family that will share a
fond memory or two. Please contact Nella with your story at NellaHodges@com-
cast.net. We'd love to hear from you.

verse of the week:
Evening, and morning, and at noon, will I pray and cry aloud: and he shall hear my voice.
Psalm 55:17


On November 11, we celebrate
Veterans Day to honor those who have
served in the armed forces of the United
States. It is a federal holiday.
In 1919 the observation was
originally designated by President
Woodrow Wilson as Armistice Day.
November 11 was selected by President
Wilson because the Armistice ending
World War 1 had been signed on this date
in 1918.
Congress passed legislation which
designated Armistice Day as a federal
holiday in 1938. In 1954 the name was
changed to Veterans Day so that all
veterans would be honored.
On this Veterans Day let us
remember those who have served our
country and pra3 for them.
As the verse or the week states if we
pray, He shall hear our voice.


Fa viLUy TItm e This weelz:
As a FamibuL, take time to pray for all those serving our country.

A train is a large, self-propelling vehicle with many separate
cars linked from end to end which travels along on a set of twoi I
t parallel rails. Trains, also known as locomotives, can carry
b many thousands of pounds of goods freight, and passengers
SA system of rails and trains is known as a railroad, or branch line
Atrain is comprised of many different cars. The first in line is the
engine; at times there may be more than one engine to pull the
weight of the train, depending on how large the line is. Next are the box cars which generally carry
passengers or freight The very last car in the line is known as the caboose, which is usually only
occupied by the crew of the train.
The first trains were more like stagecoaches, powered by the horses that pulled them The special,
flanged wheels and the pavement or tracks that were built for them to travel along were what made
these coaches a type of train. In the 1800's, the steam engine was invented, making transportation
aboard a train revolutionary. Since then, the diesel engine, the coal-burning engine, and electric
engines have made their way into the industry. The diesel engine greatly increased the speed and
power of locomotives, while electric engines have helped to reduce the amount of pollution that rail- c
ways can create. The newest type of train is a magnetically levitated train, or maglev The maglev olOra
does not use rails, but rather a guide-way comprised of magnets, which propels the train from one
place to another. They are very energy-efficient and can travel at great speeds, A maglev in Japan J D J 2

Dean Mitchell


exhibition at Arts


Center

The Gadsden Arts Center is very proud to present the Dean Mitchell
Watercolor Exhibition.
Mitchell makes unique use of watercolors, apprehending ordinary
subjects, from a different point of view; tobacco barns, rusting
factories and worn out houses are seen to be falling apart, but without
anxiety, serene in their abandonment.
Come and see why the New York Times called Dean Mitchell "a
modem day Vermeer." This is a beautiful show of one etching and nine
exquisite watercolors by a master of the medium. Catalogue available.
The Gadsden Arts Center, located at 13 North Madison Street, on
Quincy's historic courthouse square. Drop in to see the show during
regular gallery hours November 9 through December 29. Regular
gallery, hours are Tuesday through Saturday 10 am-5 pm and Sunday
1-5 pm. For more information, call (850) 875-4866 or check the web at

Several hundred people showed up Saturday afternoon at the
CEDO building in downtown Quincy for the book signing of
Gadsden County native Woodrow "Woody" Campbell's new book
"Fade To Black." The event was co-sponsored by the Tau Theta
Omega Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. and the
Gadsden County Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority,
Inc. Both organizations have national projects which promote
reading and literacy. Campbell was presented a resolution by
County Commission Chairman Brenda Holt and a proclamation
by Mayor Keith Dowdell making October 27, 2007 Woody
Campbell Day in Quincy. Campbell sisters, Ora Brown (left) and
Earnestine Gaines (right) welcomed their brother home. Campbell
said he appreciated the warm welcome and kind reception from
residents. He gave a short lecture on the contents of the book
which deals with labels and Black Americans. (Photo by Alice

TCS students visit Planetarium in
style
On September 27th, Mrs. McMillon's
Second grade Class at Tallavana Christian
School experienced and adventure of a
lifetime. The class took a field trip to the
Planetarium, Stevi B's for lunch and the
park but to the surprise and delight of the
students a luxurious chauffeured limou-
sine was provided by Mr. Miller
(Nicholas'Dad). The class had been study-
ing about The Beginning: Creation for the
first nine weeks in Bible, Science and
Social Studies. Also, each student recreat-
ed The Solar System as a Science project.


On Monday October 29, the West Gadsden Panthers enjoyed an
opportunity of a lifetime, meeting football legend and graduate of
the old Carter-Parramore High School, Mr. Woody Campbell. At
the assembly, Mr. Campbell discussed his successes of being vale-
dictorian of his class and being awarded scholarships for both foot-
ball and academics. Mr. Campbell talked about his experiences with
the Houston Oilers. Throughout the assembly Mr. Campbell
reminded the students that all of his success didn't come from his
talents, but rather his' well thought, out plans for valedictorian and
scholarships as well as key points that governed his life throughout.
Besides his plans for success, Woody Campbell said his morals and
values put forth by his parents played a major rule in his success, in
which he has carried from an infant to now. Mr. Campbell acknowl-
edge his parents continuously knowing without them any of his
opportunities wouldn't have been possible.

"There has died and been buried in this
city.,,a man who is so little known, even by
name, to the generation now in the vigor of life
that only one newspaper contained an obituary
account of him, and this was but of three or four
lines."
Herman Melville's Obituary
New York Times, September28, 1891.

He was a man whom few knew, remem-
bered, or cared about. After all, he was just a
retired customs inspector. Nearly forty years
earlier, literary critics hailed him as one of
America's great novelists following the publi-
cation of Moby Dick on November 14,1851.
Born in 1819, Herman was the son of a
wealthy New York City businessman. Before
he turned eleven, his father's business failed.
When he was twelve, his father died. No
longer wealthy, Herman left school. working

England by working as a cabin boy on a ship
sailing to Liverpool, England.
After returning to New York, he spent
most of :he net three years teaching, but the
sea called him back. In January 1841.he headed
for the South Pacific aboard the whaling ship
Acushnet. After eighteen months as a whaler,
Herman and another crewmeniber jumped ship
when they landed at the Marquesas, a group of
twelve islands 1,000 miles northeast of Tahiti.
While there, they spent an idyllic four months
with a local tribe whose practices were reputed
to include cannibalism,
After spending over three years in
Polynesia, Herman returned home to discover
that listeners were fascinated with his stories of
the South Pacific. Recognizing an opportunity,
the twenty-five year old turned them into a
book. Published in 1846, Typee proved widely
popular, and allowed twenty-six year old
Herman enough income to marry Elizabeth
Shaw. It also allowed him to become a working
novelist, making his living for the royalties on
his books and by writing articles for magazines.
Four years later, he bought a farm in west-
ern Massachusetts near Nathaniel Hawthorne's
home, and then published Moby Dick the fol-
lowing year. According to one ci itic:

HES educates faculty,


staff in Breast Cancer


Awareness Health Fair


On Thursday, October 11,
2007, the hallway to the health
clinic and the guidance depart-
ment was decorated in pink and
buzzing with the crowds of
teachers, grandparents, and
members of the staff arrayed in
various shades of pink garments
to represent breast cancer
awareness as they made their
way, to a day of enrichment. It
was a POWERFUL day at
Havana Elementary School as
the faculty and members of the
staff were given the opportunity
to gain knowledge and power on
breast cancer. In collaboration,
the Guidance Department,
Health Clinic and the Health and
Fitness Initiative joined forces
to make a difference in the fight
against breast cancer.
Teachers and staff members
rotated to the Health Fair and
received healthy refreshments,
souvenirs, and of course, knowl-
edge. The school's LPN, Mrs.


Doris Richardson showed an
informative video which
demonstrated the proper proce-
dures for self-examinations, as
well as testimonies from cancer
survivors. In addition to demon-
strations, the staff was given
hands-on opportunities to recog-
nize lumps in the human breast.
Health Support Aide, Ms. Janice
Harley, assisted by supplying
the teachers a plethora of litera-
ture gathered from various agen-
cies to help them to further
understand the seriousness of
early detection. Mrs. Doris
Drake, Director of School
Nurses for Gadsden County,
made a brief visit and joined in
the training.
Principal Hilda Jackson said,
"Every woman needs to take
responsibility for her personal
health. I encourage my entire
faculty to take health issues seri-
ously because their families
need them, and I need them here


to help educate our students."
Principal Jackson made it finan-
cially possible to implement this
Breast Cancer Awareness Health
Fair. Havana Elementary is
instrumental in ensuring that the
faculty and staff members
remain healthy and strong
through the Health and Fitness
Initiative under the direction of
art teacher, Mr. Anthony Knight.
POWERFUL! And to
empower yourselves, Havana
Elementary School encourages
you to follow the.3-step pro-
gram recommended by the
American Cancer Society to
help protect yourself: get a


mammogram, get a clinical
breast examination, and perform
self-examinations. If you want
more information about breast
cancer, visit the web site
www.cancer.org.
The Breast Cancer
Awareness Health Fair was held
in the guidance department
where counselor, Patricia S.
Harris, worked to coordinate
this initiative. Over 50 people
were in attendance. The
Guidance Department and the
Health Clinic will continue to
join efforts to enrich the lives of
students and the staff of Havana
Elementary School.
