Beer sales at Quincyfest also discussed


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
The county's request to the City of Quircy
to release it from curbside recycling
services didn't go anywhere Tuesday night
and ended in a. 2-2 tie, and commissioners
are considering a request to sell beer at the
city's annual Quincyfest.
The county, in the process of ending its
curbside recycling service, had interlocal
agreements with all of the municipalities to


provide the service. The county wants to
end the service as of Dec. 31..
Last month, the city was made aware of
the county's intentions after 11 years.
County representatives 'said the county was
losing money with only 1,200 households in
the county using the service. In Quincy, 104
households use the service at $2 per month.
City. Manager Bill Bogan said if Waste Pro

At 9 months old, Danielle
Williams has already been on the
front page of the Gadsden County
Times and between the pages of
Jet magazine.
Tuesday, as her mother, 45-year-
old Patricia Williams readied to
take she and her siblings to the
North Florida Fair, she said the
whole family was excited about
Danielle's arrival,- and her story


being told.
"We are very excited,". Williams
said. "We sent the article from the
Gadsden County Tinies in to Jet,
and they did a story about a
middle-aged woman making it
through pregnancy."
The Gretna family was featured
in the Oct. 22 issue of Jet.
Williams and her husband,
Daniel, 46, had been married 26
years when Danielle Patrice
Williams was born Jan. 28, 2007.
The couple adopted two children


through the Department of
Children and Families' adoption
program, Vicki, now 18, and
Demetrius, now 15.
When she learned she was
carrying Danielle, Mrs. Williams
had already suffered five
miscarriages.
They credit their faith and their
family for helping them get
through the pregnancy, during
which they were alternately elated
and afraid.
Danielle was born 30 weeks into


the pregnancy, weighing 2 pounds
and 6.5 ounces.
"I just really felt blessed.- it was
really unbelievable," Mrs.
Williams said in an earlier
interview. "I was asking .myself,
'Is this real?"
Danielle, meanwhile, is a
thriving toddler who will be 1
year old before long.
"She's doing just fine getting
bigger," Mrs. Williams said.
"We're working on big birthday
plans now."

Jim Southerland honored U


WQTN directors
celebrates his 40


years in the
broadcast business

by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

Jim Southerland and his wife,
Janie, settled in rural Gadsden
County in 2002. But the way
they have embraced this
community, one would think
they have lived here all of their
lives.
Recently, more than 100
family, friends, and business
associates of Jim Southerland
gathered at the Golf Club of
Quincy to celebrate 40 years of
Southerland's involvement in the
broadcast industry.
Best known as director of
WQTN, the Quincy Television
Network, Southerland is .also
known for the countless hours he
volunteers his time and talents to
make sure that citizens know
what is going on in the
community. While he tapes and
regularly broadcasts meetings of
the Quincy City Commission and
the Board of County
Commission, he does ,much
more.
"When you live in a
community you' have an
obligation to give back,"
Southerland said. That's why he
can be seen filming community
events such as the East Gadsden
High School Parade, the Black
History Parade, art openings,


Jim Southerland recently celebrated 40 years in the broadcast
industry.


American Cancer Society's Relay
For Life, March of Dimes Walk-
America and the National Hook-
Up of Black Womer's annual
MLK, Jr. Unity Breakfast.
County Manager Marlon
Brown presented Southerland
with a Resolution from the Board
of County Commissioners for his
work in broadcast and his many
contributions to the community.
His career in television began is
a very strange way as a teenager
when he delivered televisions for
a furniture store. It was during
those deliveries, according to his
wife, that he would assist with
the installation and setup for
customers.
"That's when he became
fascinated with the mechanics of
broadcasting," said Janie
Southerland. The rest is history.


Southerland moved to
Jacksonville after graduating
from high school in a small south
Georgia town where he studied
radio and television.
His 'career has been varied and
expansive. From small parts in
television shows to commericals,
and as a member of the crew sent
to Cape Canaveral to broadcast
the launching of the Apollo and
Skylab Missions. Until the slide
show that showed Southerland in
many facets of his career, he
said, he never knew he was
involved in so much.
Southerland said he his
experience in front of and behind
the camera has armed him with
the experience necessary to be a
talented producer and director.
"This is my home and I'm not
going anywhere," he said,

that happens, the system is
able to quickly determine
whether the visitor has ever
been convicted as a sexual
predator and how long the
visitor remains on campus.
Debra Rackley, principal of
the Gadsden Technical Institute
and district director for career
tech and adult education, began


using Raptor and its
accompanying software in late
spring.
She has only rave reviews for
the new security device.
"It's amazing," she said.
"In order to provide safety for
our students, we wanted to not
have to rely on community
discussion. We piggybacked on


Leon County's program it has
helped us a lot."
Rackley, who lobbied for the
system to be used district-wide,
said she had seen a need for a
similar device at the GTI
campus, where the minimum
student age is 16 and there is no
maximum age.
"We Were getting a different


population of student requesting
admission here," she said.
All visitors to GTI are required
to scan their IDs. If one comes
up with a violation that would
prohibit the visitor from being
on campus while other students
were there, the Raptor sends an
automatic text message to
Rackley's cell phone.


GTI does offer classes to those
with a sexual crime on their
history on days during which
regular classes don't meet.
"This has helped us a lot, but
we don't want to completely
deter people," she said.
"Everyone is entitled to an
education."
After being permitted passage,


visitors are given a badge to
wear while they are on campus..
The system, which sells for
around $1,900 in addition to
monthly subscription fees, can
create logs and generate reports
should administrators so wish.
"If you're thinking in terms of
campus security," Rackley said,
"it's the way to go."

acres, to an Ag-I use, which
permits one dwelling per 5 acres.
Also Thursday, commissioners
are slated to hold a public
hearing on a request to change
the land use designation on eight
parcels and a portion of a ninth


parcel comprising 206 acres
from the agriculture-3 land use
category to the agriculture
category. The land is located on
the east and west sides of Iron
Bridge Road (County Road 153),,
the east and west sides of


Concord-Bainbridge Road
(County Road 157) and west of
and adjacent to the
Ocholockonee River.
Other agenda items include:
* A request to change the land
use designation on a 2-acre
parcel from agriculture-2 to
commercial land use category.
The property is on the east side
of Scotland Road (County Road


159) and the south side of the
CSX Railroad around 1.5 miles
south of Havana.
* A request for preliminary site
plan for a proposed public
and/or institutional use on a 12-
acre parcel in the Urban Service
'Area land use category on the
south side of Strong Road
around 2,100 feet east of
Highbridge Road (County Road


268).
*A preliminary site plan for a
proposed light industrial use on
a nearly 3-acre lot in the
industrial land use category
located on lot six in the Gadsden
Commercial Exchange and north
of Merritt Land roughly 1.5
miles south of Havana.
* A conceptual site plan for the
proposed light industrial use on


a 6-acre parcel in the
commercial land use category.
The parcel is at the northeast
corner of the intersection of
Fairbanks Ferry Road (County
Road 12) and Concord-
Bainbridge Road in Concord.
The Gadsden County
Commission is scheduled to hear
the above items at its Dec. 4
meeting.

Dr. Watson and his father,
Walter Watson, along with
Alexander Johnson, are officers
of the W. P. Humphrey Club,
Inc.
This organization's mission is
to restore the Old Gretna School
House which is located on
Church Street in Gretna and use
it as a community center and a
museum.
Construction of the school
building began in June 1908 and
classes opened in August. The
last classes were held in 1935.
The school never had a senior
class as the llth grade was the
highest attainable class. Some
students would further their
education in the Mt. Pleasant or
Quincy schools.
In 1909, Mr. Ira Gunson was
principal and Miss Ellie Hentz
and Miss Gertrude Hinson were
teachers. Mr. R. A. Gray, native
of Havana, was principal during
1910-1911. Mr. Gray later


became Florida's Secretary of
State.
Dr. Watson will be sharing
information about this historic
school building and the plans
which are presently underway
for the restoration project.
If you or any member of your
family attended or taught school
in the Old Gretna School House,
you are especially invited to
come and share those memories.
Remember -to bring any old
papers, report cards,
photographs and other materials
you have of the school, students,
and faculty.
-Copies of these items will be
most valuable in the restoration
process.
Everyone is invited to attend
this informative meeting and the
Society looks forward to seeing
you there.

ContemplationsA



Vacation: Good for


what ails you


Before three weeks ago I had not had a
vacation this year. I had been out of the
office several times, but not on vacation. I
used most of my 2007 vacation time to
attend conferences and workshops
sponsored by several organizations to
which I belong.
But going to a conference is not the same
as a vacation. Earlier this year I attended a
three-day conference on New Orleans. We
actually had workshops that began at 7:30
a.m. Not only were we expected to attend,
we could not sign-in until the workshop
was nearly over. Otherwise, you didn't get
credit for the training. There was no time
for anything except workshops. At night,
all I could do was get in bed and go to
sleep. It was worse than work.
Last month I had a real vacation. I went
back to the Nassau, a place I'had not
visited in the past 10 years. I spent five
glorious days doing nothing. I stayed at a
resort on Cable Beach and my room had a
magnificent view of the Atlantic Ocean.
Each morning, as I ate breakfast, I watched
the cruise ships slowly make thier way to
dock.
I watched television until I was ready to
leave my room. I wasn't in a shopping
mood. I wasn't looking for a good deal on
alcohol, gems, or perfumes. I was looking
to get some rest, rest, and more rest. I don't
like cruising so, the 35 minute flight from
Fort Lauderdale was perfect.
Speaking of perfection, the weather was
nothing short of gorgeous. The week prior
to my visit it had rain for three straight
days. The week after, my visit was when
the Hurricane Noel skirted the island. So,
if I had to choose a time to visit, my timing


Hunker down

with ,

lKes


was on target.
Because of Rachel Ray and her "$40 a
Day" program, I have learned how to, as
she says "chat up the locals to fine the best
places to'eat at the best prices." I have
learned not to ask the concierge' at the
hotel. Following Rachel's advice, I asked a
Scab driver, a woman who operated one of
the many tee-shirt stalls and a guy I sat
next to on the bus. All of them said the
same thing, "Two Brothers Restaurant"
was the place to go for the freshest
seafood.
The bonus was that the restaurant was
surrounded by small stalls where young
men make conch salad (my favorite)
before your very eyes. It doesn't get any
fresher that that. They dive for the conch in
the morning and by early afternoon, they
have.set up shop. As you order, they crack.
open the shell and extract the meat. Using
oversize knives they chop the conch into
small pieces, add fresh tomatoes, onions,
fresh squeezed orange, lime, and lemon
juice. They hand you a heaping bowl and
you hand them $8. All of them sell the
salad for $8. I ate conch salad every single
day.
The best thing about my mini-vacation is
.that my cell phone didn't work on the
island. No one could call me and vice
versa. It was great. I had forgotten how
many hours I spend on the telephone until
I realized the lightness on the right side of
my head was from not having a telephone
plastered to it most of the day and night.
When I got back to work it was with a
renewed spirit and a freshness that I had
not felt in many.months. Vacation: it will
do a body, and mind good.

worked up on the fifth floor and he was in
charge of "supplying" life insurance to all
the employees. He waved off my argument
that this was only a temporary job, "Son,
everyone needs life insurance. You've got
to have it!"
I was twenty-one years old.....and not too
smart. I did have one year of college left. 1
was hoping that "things" would become
clearer if I could just graduate! "How does
this insurance stuff work?"
He had a booklet, brochures, charts,
graphs and pictures, "It's pretty simple,
you pay us $19.55 every month now and
we will give it all back to you, plus some,
at a later date."
That didn't sound too bad except for the
$19.55 a month. Daddy always said if it
seemed too good to be true, look for the
catch! I studied on this thing for a few
minutes. "What do I have to do to get all
this money?"
"Oh, it will be paid out," the guy was just
a'smiling and I got the feeling this might
not be the first time he had given this talk,
"to whoever you have named as
beneficiary at the time of your death."
I was gasping for breath and he quickly
added, "And Kes, here is the good news, if
you die on a common carrier such as an
airplane or train, we will double you're
death benefits!"
.I had never been on an airplane.
Passenger trains had gone out with hula
hoops and half moon hub caps. Listen, I
hadn't graduated yet but I wasn't an idiot! I
wasn't about to pay for anything that I had
to die to collect!
Somehow, at that particular age and time
in my life, I was thinking a whole lot more
About living......than I was about dying!
As a matter of fact, even as the guy was
explaining the dire consequences if I didn't
sign up today, I was thinking hard on how
to make friends with Beverly Birdsong.
She worked in the office with me. And she
had a cousin who knew Judy Castleman,


who worked in the ticket office at the
Grand Ole Opry.
The only "consequences" that mattered to
me was if Ernest Tubb and Faron Young
were going to be at the Opry on Saturday
night. And just maybe, if I was real nice,
Beverly might mention to her cousin to put
in a good word for me with Judy. I knew
both shows were sold out but it was worth
a shot.....
I learned a lot that summer about
commuting in the big city, corporate
headquarters, inner office jealousy,
Additional Death Benefit Riders, the
Nashville Sporting Goods baseball team,
gossip around the water cooler and pork
shank and baked beans at the original Gerst
House down on. Second Avenue.....but I
didn't buy no life insurance.
I did date Judy Castleman pretty steady
and I enjoyed front row seats to see Loretta
Lynn, Stonewall Jackson, Lester Flatt and
Earl Scruggs, Porter Wagoner, Roy Acuff
and the whole Grand Ole Opry family.
And, let me tell you, that beat rolling the
dice with life insurance sales people all to
Grinders Switch and back!
If you survive college you've got to
figure life owes you a few years. We all
know there are no guarantees but I didn't
have time to weigh in on it. I was too busy
looking for one of those jobs paying two
dollars an hour! I needed a new pair of
boots, some Levi's and a car. I got so
enthralled with living that I forgot all about
dying.
I married Cathy and figured she would
take care of me if anything happened. Then
the boys came along and I was having
trouble "affording" milk and diapers. An
extra $19.55 a month for life insurance was
out of the question! I did have a couple of
insurance guys come to the house. I told
them if they'd advance me the cash
promised on the back end of the policy I'd
gladly send them $19.55 just as soon as my
youngest son graduated from college.
It seemed like a sporting proposition to
me, but I learned those insurance guys are
a lot more interested in their brochures than
they are yours......
Uncle Womack passed away last week
and I figured if it could happen to him it

The hue and cluck of a water duck


It seems a good time to mention
that waterfowl and coot season are
upon us and so, apparently, are
fulvous whistling ducks.
Initially I thought the press release
declaring this was sent in the spirit of
an invitation to go snipe hunting,
and, by the way, what's with the joke
about going snipe hunting? There are
snipes. They are huntable.
It's a wonder I didn't spend half my
life lost in a marsh somewhere
swatting mosquitoes, I guess.
It may, at this point, be clear to you
that my knowledge of hunting is
slightly limited.
But you have to admit anytime
it's announced that the killing of
waterfowl, including the
aforementioned fulvous whistling
duck, begins Nov. 17 and that you
can only take certain ducks in certain
places at certain times it sounds like
a round of Duck, Duck Goose with,
you know, guns. And hip waders.
I find the rules fascinating. The first
phase of waterfowl season and coot
season, don't forget coots, however
crotechty they maybe is Nov. 17-
25. The second phase of the season is
Dec. 8-Jan. 27.
I wondered about that until I read

the rest of the release, where the
rigors of waterfowl pursuit are
clearly outlined as follows:
The daily bag limit for waterfowl is
six. The six-duck limit may consist
of no more than one black duck, one
mottled duck (Florida duck, which I
think should be a nice, aquamarine
color but no one asked me), one
fulvous whistling-duck, one pintail,
two canvasback, two redheads, two
wood ducks, two scaup, four scoters
and four mallards (no more than two
may be females.)
I'm not sure if that sounds more
like a bachelor's party or a medical
procedure, but either way; it's
obviously a two-phase deal. Just
listen out for the telltale "kee-woo-
ooo" of the fulvous and you'll be
OK.
The daily bag limit for coots is 15.
Whether you actually want more than
that home for the holidays is up to
you. And for mergansers, the daily
bag limit is five, but, and this is key,
only two may be hooded.
Female mergansers attract a mate
by coyly rasping, "prakk, prakk."
Males return with a signature hiccup
and sneeze call.

to the

Editor


Dear Editor:

I was very disappointed to read that Gadsden
County is discontinuing home pick-up of
recyclables. However, I am appalled at the more
recent news of the County's actions in the handling
of recyclables in the past month. Commissioner Ed
Dixon is right to be concerned about the residents
who do not pay for garbage pick-up. He, and the
other Commissioners, should be as worried about
those of us who paid for recycling only to have the
County pay to have it deposited in a landfill. Rather
than becoming argumentative, angry, and using
fabricated statistics, Commissioner Dixon and, the
rest of the Commissioners should be ques['ionini,
what has transpired in the .recycling program and
joining Cominissioner Doug Croley in his request for
an investigation. Perhaps Governor Crist could be
persuaded to site the waste-to energy plant in
Gadsden County. Without recycling we certainly can
supply the waste.
Sincerely,
Rosemary Branson

What


wereally


owe our


soldiers

By Alex Epstein

Every Veterans Day we pay
tribute to our fellow Americans
who have served in the military.
With speeches and ceremonies,
we recognize their courage and
valor. But justice demands that
,we also recognize that we should
have far more living veterans
than we do. All too many of our
soldiers have died unnecessarily--
because they were sent to fight
for a purpose other than
America's freedom.
The proper purpose of a
government is to protect its
citizens' lives and freedom
against the initiation of force by
criminals at home and aggressors
abroad. The American
government has a sacred
responsibility to recognize the
individual value of every one of
its citizens' lives, and thus to do
everything possible to protect the
rights of each to life, liberty,
property, and the pursuit of
happiness. This absolutely
includes our soldiers.
Soldiers are not sacrificial.
:,bje.t 't.ie. are tull-fledged.
Americans with the same moral
right as the rest of us to the
pursuit of their own goals, their
own dreams, their own
happiness. Rational soldiers
enjoy much of the work of
military service,.take.pride in
their ability to do it superlatively,
and gain profound satisfaction in
protecting the freedom of every
American, including their own
freedom.
Soldiers know that in entering
the military, they are risking their
lives in the event of war. But this
risk is not, as it is often
described, a "sacrifice" for a
"higher cause." When there is a
true threat to America, it is a
threat to all of our lives and loved
ones, soldiers included. Many
become soldiers for precisely this
reason; it was, for instance, the
realization of the threat of Islamic
terrorism after September 11--
when 3,000 innocent Americans
were slaughtered in cold blood on
a random Tuesday morning--that
prompted so many to join the
.military.
For an American soldier, to
fight for freedom is, not to fight
for a "higher cause," separate
from or superior to his own life--
it is to fight for his own life and
happiness. He is willing to risk
his life in time of war because he
is unwilling to live as anything
other than a free man. He does
not want or expect to die, but he
would rather die than live in
slavery or perpetual fear. His
attitude is epitomized by the
words of John Stark, New
Hampshire's most famous soldier
in the Revolutionary War: "Live
free or die."
What we owe these men who
fight so bravely for their and our
freedom is to send them to war
only when that freedom is truly
threatened, and to make every
effort to protect their lives during
war--by providing them with the
most advantageous weapons,
training, strategy, and tactics
possible.
Shamefully, America has
repeatedly failed to meet this
obligation. It has repeatedly
placed soldiers in harm's way
when no threat to America
existed--e.g., to quell tribal
conflicts in Somalia, Bosnia, and
Kosovo. America entered World
War I, in which 115,000 soldiers
died, with no clear self-defense
purpose but rather on the vague,
self-sacrificial grounds that "The


world must be made safe for
democracy." America's
involvement in Vietnam, in
which 56,000 Americans died in

RECYCLING from Page 1


The Gadsden County Times November 15,2007 5


United Way allocates funds


pay a minimum of $5.50 per
month if the company could
combine the Quincy and Havana
recyclers.
If the city decides not to release
the county from the contract, the
county will be obligated to
continue the service through the
contract end, July 1, 2008 with
three months prior notice.
"With 104 people in Quincy
using the program, we are
recommending that this service be
discontinued," said Bogan. He
added that all of the options had.
been weighed and that to continue
would be cost prohibitive.
Davin Suggs, the county's
budget director, said he plans to
recommend to the Board of
County Commissioners Nov. 20
that free recycling receptacles be
placed at all county solid waste
sites.
"We will propose the drop-off
recycling centers at no charge. We
have a small county and we
compared other counties our size
and found that 25 of the 29
respondents have drop,off service.


We don't see moving to the drop
off as an end point for us. We
know we cannot leave this as it
is," Suggs said.
The nearest drop-off point for
people who live in Quincy is on
Post Plant Road, off State Road
12, between Quincy and Havana.
Commissioner Sherrie Taylor
said she hoped the county could
revisit eliminating the curbside
pickup.
"What's holding my vote back is
for the county to give the citizens.
a little more time. If they could go
back and talk to the (other)
municipalities and get the price
down," Taylor said.
In other matters, Mayor Keith
Dowdell informed commissioners
that Tri-Eagle Sales could be
interested in sponsoring
Quincyfest if they are allowed to
sell beer during the annual
festival.
"We have a company that wants
to sponsor the festival. It doesn't
make any sense for Quincy to be
dry and the county is wet. We
need to stop complaining,"


Dowdell said.
Taylor said she wanted to talk
with her constituents before'
making a decision. And
Commissioner Finely Cook said
he would rather look at an alcohol
ordinance as a whole. But Police
Chief Gerald McSwain made his
feelings clear.
"I don't want to get to the place
where we can have beer at car
shows. Personally, I think we (can
make do with the current
Quincyfest format). I don't feel
good about it," he said.
Clarence Tennell said he has
attended three Quincyfests said he
supported the sale of,beer.
Commissioner Derrick Elias
asked that the Quincyfest
Committee exhaust all other
sources of corporate sponsorship
first. If other sponsored could be
secured he said, he "didn't see the
significance of having beer."
Finally, Bogan announced that
Utilities Director Rohan Berry is
leaving the employment' of the
city. Commissioners thanked him
for his service to the community.

Schools to install hand sanitizers


By LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor

Local school officials want
to remind area caregivers that a
little hand-washing goes in the
long way of the prevention of
Influenza, methicillin-resistant
SStaphylococcus aureus
Infections and the common
cold.
With that in mind, they will
be installing hand sanitizer dis-
pensers in cafeterias and other
heavy traffic areas of schools
Next week.
"We're going all we can,"
Said Schools Superintendent
SReginald James. "We want to
be proactive and protective."
While MRSA infections
have been found in students as
nearby as Columbia County,
none has been found in
Gadsden County, James said.
He'd like to keep it that way.
"We want them to have, with
This kind of staph going around,
a way to handle it," James said.
"We believe students will
become accustomed to using


the sanitizers and that will cut
down on not only stash but
influenza and the common
cold, too."
The hand sanitizers will be
placed in public schools begin-
ning the week of Nov. 19,
James said, in cafeterias,
weight rooms and other high-
traffic areas.
"We want to cut down on the
number of students who get ill
as well as the number of staff,"
he said.
According to a Florida
Department of Health press
release, schoolchildren are not
considered a high-risk group
for stash infection. After antibi-
otics were introduced in the
1930s and '40s, stash infections
began to develop a resistance to
the most commonly used
antibiotics' as they were intro-
duced.
The Florida Department of
Health, in collaboration with
the U.S. Centers for Disease
Control and Prevention, started
the Florida Schools Get Smart
program in the fall of 2007,


working with school nurses in
more than 400 schools across
Florida.
The CDC notes that stash
infections acquired outside the
health care setting occur most
frequently among persons
where there are "Five Cs" pres-
ent:
1) Crowding
2) Contact (frequent
skin-to-skin)
3) Compromised skin
(cuts or abrasions)
4) Contaminated items
and surfaces
5) Lack of cleanliness

Washing hands frequently
with soap and water and then
keeping them clean and dry is
one of the top ways to prevent
infection. Other ways to stop an
infection in its tracks include
keeping skin infections such as
boils covered and properly
treated, avoiding sharing per-
sonal items such as towels or
razors and keeping locker
rooms and sports equipment
clean with a disinfectant.

a free house, what else do you
want,',' Ruby said.
Commissioner Sherrie Taylor
said she has been aware of Smith's
problems and wants the city to
address them and make the
necessary repairs. Commissioner
Finley Cook volunteered to take a
look at the house and report back to
the commission. The commission
agreed that Cook should assess the
problems and that repairs should
begin immediately.
Commissioners, who voted on
another housing grant earlier in the
meeting, said they wanted
assurances that future homes would
not make matters worse for
homeowners. City Manager Bill
Bogan said the city will now
oversee all of its housing
construction under the grant to
avoid such problems.
"In a lot of ways, the City wasn't
even on site when the inspections
were signed off and" approved,"
Bogan said.
In the past licensed contractors
were hired to completed the work
called for under the grants and
homeowners had a year to file
complaints with the contractor.
Under the new policy, the city is its


own contractor on projects.
According to grants consultant
Auburn Ford, citizens will also be
educated on how to file grievance
complaints in accordance to the
rules of the grant.
In other matters:
Commissioner Derrick Elias
asked City Attorney Jack McLean
to revisit the agreement the City
and the Chamber of Commerce
over the city's recent approval of
selling the industrial park to
businessman Clayton Semblar.
The city voted 3-2, with Elias and
Mayor Keith Dowdell dissenting,
to approve Phase I of the sale of the
park at its last council meeting.
Semblar, owner of CDS
Manufacturing, told commissioners
his expansion to the park would
add an additional 25 jobs to the
area initially and at least 50
eventually.
Currently the company constructs
concrete products including pilings,
beams and septic tanks atits
Midway location.
Others decried the park for around $1.6 million,
although only 112 acres of the 343-
acre park is developable as the rest
of the property is wetlands, and
easement.
Mayor Keith Dowdell suggested,

and all commissioners agreed, to
ask the attorney to review the
agreement between the City and
the Chamber of Commerce and
report back.
Elias said he had recently'
received a telephone call from a
man he could only remember as
Freeman. He. said Freeman
informed him that he has a contract
with the city to get hay off the
property and that he paid the city
for the hay.,
Bogan said that Freeman had a
contract but that the contract was
over on Nov. 6 of this year. He said
Freeman understood that it was
part of the business park and
subject to be sold. He said the city
also had a 60-day termination
clause in Freeman's contract.
Elias asked how much money
was generated from the contract
and that he didn't recall the
commission discussing or signing
off on such a contract.
Bogan explained that the contract
brought in about $7,200, which is
less 'that 'thd'$10,000 'is authorized
to spend without commission
consent.
Bogan said the Freeman's
contract is the only one that
brought in revenue that the
commissioners were unaware of


and executed.
Without naming names, Elias
also said he spoke with a
prospective developer who wanted
to buy two acres in the business
park and was told 18 months ago
that he could buy them for $69,000
or around $35,000 per acre. Elias
said the developer is still interested.
However, Mclean advised that
the property on the north side of the
,park will be more expensive based
on the availability of infrastructure.
Elias said he would facilitate a
meeting between Bogan and the
developer.
Sam Palmer, who came to the
meeting to address the sale of the
business park, asked
commissioners to revisit the issue.
"When you take that (the business
park) away, you take away jobs.
The city don't have nothing to
make people come here and offer
jobs," he said.
"It went from selling 41,acres to
selling dthe whole.. hin i 0 pi'e
person. Thjt was very unusual. YOIu
didn't"'' flow the rules"' .id
regulations. You pushed the
deadline up quickly, that was
unusual. You're trying to kill the
city and you're driving the nail in.
There is no avenue left for jobs if
the park is sold," Palmer said.

The Gadsden County Times November 15,2007 7


NHBW holds regional meeting in Quincy


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

"I want to thank all of you
for a very productive meeting
today," said Geneva Wesley,
regional director of the
National Hook-Up ofl Black
Women (NIIl\\) in closing the
owi.ini.;iio>ln's regional meeting
Saturday.
'Women representing chap-
ters from Gadsden County,
Tallahassee, and Orlando took
part in the day-long meeting at
the Hampton Inn.
NHBW is a national organi-
zation, headquarted in Chicago,
which promotes family values
and the welfare of children. The
national projects this year,
which all chapters are asked to
promote in their communities,
are domestic violence and
stroke and heart disease pre-
vention.
"These regional meetings
are a way for us to connect on a
smaller level than at our nation-
al convention. We find that the


issues we face in Florida are the
same as issues chapters face
nationwide, but we have to
address ours differently," said
Linda Jefferson, co-regional
director and first vice president
of the Gadsden County Chapter
of NHBW..
Jefferson said that Florida
takes advantage of events such
as football games to reach a
larger audience.
Last week, she said, the
Gadsden and Tallahassee chap-
ters joined together at the
Florida A & M University
homecoming game to reach
hundreds of people with their
domestic violence initiative.
.This weekend with more
than 80,000 people expected to
attend the annual football game
between FAMU and Bethune-
Cookman University in
Orlando, the chapters will join
with the Orlando chapter to
reach as many people as possi-
ble on their two national pro-
grams.
"Our aim is to get people


accustomed to the idea that at
both events members of the
National Hook-Up of Black
Women will be there distribut-
ing pertinent information on
health and quality of life
issues," said Jefferson.,
Cindi Evans, ARNP, MSN,
Post-MSN specializing in Adult
Primary Care, Women's Health,
and HIV Care at the Bond
Clinic presented a workshop on
stroke and heart disease pre-
vention.
She urged the women to ask
questions of their health
providers and take an active
role in their health care.
"The information she gave
us will help us as we go out and
talk to women about stroke and
heart disease prevention," said
Orlando Chapter president
Jennifer Quash Adams.
S"It's the exchange of ideas
and sharing of methods that
makes the regional meeting so
important. The smaller setting
is conducive to furthering our
gbals," Wesley said.


Members of the southern region of the National Hook-Up of Black Women held their annual
regional meeting in Quincy last Saturday. Members from Tallahassee and Orlando chapters
attended the one day meeting.

I miss one premium payment. It
pays double if I'm injured falling
off a camel or if I am attacked by
a Tyrannosaurus. It is only good
if both Paula and I die at the same

in the commission of a crime at
the time I fall off the camel. And


I gettwo free weeks of coverage

Afghanistan we refused to bomb
many top leaders out of their
hideouts for fear of civilian
casualties; these men continue to
kill American soldiers. In Iraq,
our hamstrung soldiers are not
allowed to smash a militarily
puny insurgency--and instead
must suffer an endless series of
deaths by an undefeated enemy.
To send oldiess into wat;r,,;
-without a clear self-defense
purpose, and without providing
them every possible protection,
is a betrayal of their valor and a '
'violation of their rights.
This Veterans Day, we.must
call for a stop to the sacrifice of


our soldiers and condemn all
those who demand it.
It is only by doing so that we
can truly honor not only our
dead, but also our living:
American soldiers who have the
courage to defend their freedom
and ours.

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


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


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

Times Editor

It was another splendid night for the Gadsden Arts
Center last Friday. Hundreds of people turned out for the
opening reception and awards ceremony for the 19th
Annual Art in Gadsden: A Regional Exhibit of Fine Art.
"109 wonderful artists participated this year. It is our
attempt to recognize and celebrate local talent. To the
artist, we prize you and we are proud to have you all in
the show," said Tricia Collins, art center director.
The show, which was sponsored by Premier Bank, drew
praise from Collins. Without sponsors such as the bank,
Collins said, bringing such exhibits to citizens would be
difficult.
"This show means, a lot to Quincy. It affords our
citizens the opportunity to see art work that we otherwise
would not see," said Premier Bank president, Bruce
Rowan. He said sponsoring the show is a pleasure for the
bank.
Doug Croley, of The Doug Croley Agency, which
sponsored prize money for first place winner Albert Kyle
Pace, said the center and its director are an asset to the
community.."We appreciate Gadsden Arts and we have a
wonderful director," Croley said.
Board of Directors member, Michael O'Halloran, said
the opening nights are a wonderful way to see people
they don't often see and it brings the community together.

"I'm always amazed at the people I run into at these
openings" O'Halloran said, just as he hugged old friend
Bev Kirk. He was hoping to see friends Dave Harbaugh
and Beth Appleton who came from St. George's Island.
Appleton, known for her cut paper, earned Honorable


Mention for one of her entries. Also receiving Honorable
Mention for their entries were Suzanne Doddridge;
Bronson Clark, and Michele Beaudin. Best In Sho6v
award went to Joseph Summers.
The regional show, which is open to artists living
within 200 miles of Quincy is a.juried exhibition and
artists are eligible for cash awards totaling $2,000. The
exhibition was judged by Mark Messersmith, a professor
of art at Florida State University. Messersmith has lived
in north Florida since 1985 and is a member of the
Gadsden Arts Center.
There were new artists but many, such as Virginia
Coultas, Eluster Richardson, James Thigpen, Alexander
Hinson, Jr., Willliam H. McKeown, Dawn McMillian,
and donalee pond-Koenig, are regular exhibitors.
An added bonus this year was the exhibition of Dean
Mitchell's watercolors in the Zoe Galloway Gallery. The
show will run through Dec. 29.
Mitchell's watercolors, said Collins, "are seen as if from
God's point of view; there is a sense that they are beheld.
The barns and factories and houses seem to be falling
part, but without anxiety. They are serene in their
abandonment."
The Gadsden Arts Center is located at 13 North
Madison Street on' Quincy's historic courthouse square.
Regular gallery hours are Tuesday through Saturday 10
a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.
For more information, call 850-875-4866 or check the
web at www.gadsdenarts.org.

to Havana, Florida in July 1998.
Deborah worked at the Centel
Phone Company, JC Penny's,
Mae's Shop, and finally as the
office manager of Newhall
Photography. Her lifelong love of
God led Deborah to devote much
of her time to Christian endeavors.
She was active in many churches
in Tallahassee including The
Chapel of the Resurrection
Episcopal Chapel near FSU, St.
John's Episcopal Church, Holy
Spirit Episcopal Church, Pisgah
United:Methodist Church, and St.

Lindeman, five nephews
Jonathan, Matthew, Paul, David,
and Andrew Newby and their
families. Five great grandnieces
and nephews. And other cousins
Freddy and Johnnie Newby,
Janice Brooks, Jane and John H.

truest thing that can be said about
Deborah is she loved passionately


and well. First Jesus Christ, then
her family, then everyone else
with whom she came in contact.
Nearly everyone who knew her
loved her and will miss her, but
will be happy they knew her. Her
father John Smith Newby pre-
cedes her in death.

verse of the weez:
In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. Genesis 1:1 (KJV)

The earth was without form and was
void. God spoke and on the.first day
there was light. The second day God
S divided the waters, which separated
the water and sky. Day three God
separated the water from the land and
made dry land. Day four God created
Night and day so that seasons would
appear. The sun and the moon were
also created on this day. The fifth day
of creation God made the animals that
lived on the land and in the water.
The sixth day God created man. He
drew from the dust breathed the breath
of life into the nostrils and Adam was
created. God caused Adam to go into
a deep sleep and he took a rib and
drew Eve and gave her life. The
seventh day God rested.

B 4 The Gadsden CountyTimes November 15,2007


AME RICAN E0
America, as we know it today, is governed by a complex
system of laws and legislation. The U. S. Constitution is the
rule book in which those laws are written and revised. There
are three main levels of government in the U. S.-Federal,
State and Local. The Federal level is the highest level and is comprised of three main bodies-the
Executive Branch, the Legislative Branch and the Judicial Branch. This organization of government
has been in place since the founders of our Country penned the Constitution. It was written this way
to create a "separation of power" ensuring that no one branch became too powerful or could over-
look the needs of U. S. citizens. This system uses a method, called "checks and balances, which
gives each separate branch the authority to veto, or undo, decisions made in the other branches, if
they are found to be unconstitutional.
The Executive Branch is in charge of enforcing the laws wntten in the Constitution. The President,
Vice President, the Executive departments, and the independent law enforcement agencies, such
as EPA and CIA, are under the Executive Branch The Legislative Branch is in charge of making
new laws and revising the laws that already exist in the Constitution. The U.S. Legislature is made
up of two bodies--the Senate and the House of Representatives Members of the Senate and the
House of Representatives are voted into office by residents of each individual state and are re-
ferred to as Congressman or Senator. The last branch of govemment is the Judicial Branch. The
Judicial Branch is responsible for interpreting the laws of the land The judicial system in the United
States spreads all the way down into state and local govemments The highest court in the U S. is
the United States Supreme Court. All decisions made in the U.S Supreme Court are final, since
there is no higher court in the Country.

My 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.

FSU physicist shining



light on 'dark matter'


d ar "e d "By r '


We've all been taught that
our bodies, the Earth, and in
fact all matter in the universe is
composed of tiny building
blocks called atoms. Now
imagine if this weren't the
case. This mind-bending
concept is at the core of the
scientific research that one
Florida State University
professor -- and hundreds of'
his colleagues all over the
world -- are pursuing.
"Recent scientific.
breakthroughs have shown that
most of the matter 'in the
universe -- about four-fifths --
is not made up of atoms, but of
something else, called 'dark
matter,'" said Howard Baer,
FSU's J.D. Kimel Professor of
Physics. "The evidence for
dark matter is now
overwhelming, and the
required amount of dark matter
is becoming precisely known."
Baer explained 'that dark
matter is believed to exist in
the form of tiny particles that
do not interact with light.
Because they don't emit or
reflect electromagnetic
radiation the way atomic, or
baryonic, matter does, these
dark matter particles haven't
been directly observed.
However, scientists have long
theorized their existence based
on their gravitational effects on
visible matter throughout the
universe.
"For example, the
gravitational effect of dark
matter makes galaxies spin
faster than one would
otherwise expect," Baer said.
"Also, dark matter's
gravitational field distorts the
light of objects behind it --
creating the so-called 'lensing
effect.' By measuring these


sorts of phenomena, we can
tell that the universe is full of
some sort of 'stuff' that we just
can't see." '
Despite this progress, the
exact identity of dark matter
remains a mystery.
"Current constraints on dark
matter properties show that the
bulk of dark matter cannot be
any of the known particles,"
Baer said. "The existence of
dark matter is at present one of
the strongest' pieces of
evidence .that the current
theory of fundamental particles
and forces, summarized in the
Standard Model of particle
physics, is incomplete. At the
same time, because dark matter
is the dominant form of matter.
in the universe, an
understanding of its properties
is essential to determine how
galaxies formed ahd how the
universe evolved. Therefore,
the discovery of dark matter is
among the most important
goals in science today."
A theoretical physicist, Baer
employs mathematical models
and calculations, as opposed to
experimental methods, in an
attempt to understand the basic
properties of dark matter. To
that end, he travels frequently
to CERN, the world's largest
particle physics laboratory,
located on the border between
France and Switzerland. At
CERN, teams of physicists
from all over the world are
preparing for the start-up of
what will be the world's most
powerful particle accelerator,
the Large Hadron Collider
(LHC), in 2008. With the LHC,
they will conduct experiments
that seek to solve some, of the
fundamental mysteries of
science, including the identity


of dark matter. In addition to
searches at the LHC, the hunt
for dark matter is progressing
at experiments deep
underground in Minnesota,
under thick Antarctic ice, and
even in outer space.
Don't expect any conclusive
data right away, Baer said.
"The identification of dark
matter will most likely not be
immediate, but will rather
unfold gradually," he said.
Baer also recently served on
an advisory board charged by
the U.S. Department of Energy
and the National Science
Foundation with developing a
plan to ensure that the United
States continues to be a world
leader in efforts to detect and
study dark natter. The Dark
Matter Scientific Assessment
Group's whitepaper, "Report
on the Direct Detection and
Study of Dark Matter," will to
a large degree establish the
priorities and strategies for the
detection and study of dark
matter by U.S. scientists over
the next decade or more. (Read
more about the group's
scientific recommendations at
www.science.doe.gov/hep/DM
SAGReportJuly 18,2007.pdf.)
Finally, Baer is making a
lasting impact in the field of
theoretical physics in another
way. In 2006, he and a
colleague, Xerxes Tata of the
University of Hawaii, cowrote
a physics, textbook, "Weak
Scale Supersymmetry: From
Superfields to Scattering
Events," which now is being.
used in university physics
courses all over the world.

Governor recognizes
Retired Teacher Day

Florida Gov. Charlie Crist
recently recognized Nov. 21 as
Retired Educators Day.
On Oct. 29, he approved a
resolution proclaiming Nov. 21
as Retired Educators Day. It
reads as follows:
"Whereas the educational
system without our state is a
vital part of our- society,
providing education for young
and. old alike; and whereas, at
the heart of the educational
system is the educator who is
devoted to sharing his or her
knowledge with their students;
and whereas, in Florida, we have
many retired educators who have
spent most of their lives giving
themselves to our education
system and our students; Now,
therefore, I Charlie Crist,
Governor of the State of Florida,
do hereby extend greetings and
best wishes to all observing
November 21, 2007 and Retired
Educators Day."


Pilot Club happenings


Above, members of the Pilot Club of Quincy introduced their memebrs to The Brain Minders
Buddies recently during a program meeting. The Brain Minders Progam is the signature project of
the international organization and is presented regularly 'to local elementary and day care centers to
educate children on brain injury prevention. The buddies are: Marcella Richmond as Martin
Monkey, Mary Alice Tiller as Fiona Fox, and Mary Emma Bassett as the Wise Owl. Helen Hurst, club
president, looks on. Since 1991, the focus of the organization has been to help people affected by
brain-related disorders. Mary Jane Woodward is the 2007 Pilot Club of Quincy sweetheart. Shown,
below, left, with Helen Hurst, club president, Woodward was honored for her commitment to the club
and community. In her honor, the club gave a donation to the Pilot International Foundation. She was
honored during the recent Founder's Day Program attended by many of the organization's past
presidents and former members as well as potential members. Pilot Club International Northwest
Florida Governor Lucretia Thomas paid her official visit to Quincy. Here, Thomas, is below, right,
with Pilot Club of Quincy president Helen Hurst. Pilot International was founded in 1921 as a
volunteer service organization. The inspiration for the name was the riverboat pilots who would steer
a true course through calm or troubled waters. The motto of the organization is "true course ever"
and the official emblem is the nautical wheel often seen at the entrance of communities throughout the
world.

Bainbridge College (BC),
which offers many online courses
in a variety of subjects and is part
of the ,Georgia ONmyLINE ini-
tiative of the University System
of Georgia (USG), is observing
Nov. 12-16 as National Distance
Learning Week.
The week was designated by
the United States Distance
Learning Association (USDLA)
to increase awareness of distance
learning. Part of that effort
includes a special supplement on
distance education that will be in
the Nov. 9 edition of USA Today.
"Georgia ONmyLINE aims to
provide easier access to USG's
Sonline courses and degree pro-
grams," said Scott Dunn, director
of BC's Office of Information
and Instructional Technology and
BC's representative on the
Regents' Advisory Committee on
Distance Education.
Dunn said that with collabora-
tive efforts throughout Main
Campus and the Early County
Site in Blakely, including dis-
tance education, BC is working to
meet the need to create a "more
educated Georgia."
Part of an on-going effort to
broaden access to public higher
education,' the USG launched
www.georgiaonmyline.org. It is
to provide access to a full array of
distance-education offerings from
the 35 USG institutions. This is to


improve service to students with-
in the system and at other institu-
tions in Georgia and nationally,
according to Dunn.
The website provides students
a searchable catalog of online
courses and programs updated
each semester and a central loca-
tion that allows students to regis-
ter and transfer credits among
multiple USG institutions. It
includes BC's courses.
Each semester BC students
may take distance learning cours-
es that cover many fields. Fall
Semester offerings include anato-
my and physiology, business
administration, business mathe-
matics, computer fundamentals,
introduction to business, medical
terminology, microcomputer con-
cepts, office procedures, princi-
ples of bookkeeping, psychology,
regents essay, regents reading,
spreadsheet applications, techni-
cal math, vocational math, and
word processing.
'Through this site, prospective
and enrolled students can quickly
find online programs and/or
courses that meet their career or
degree needs," said Dr. Kris
Biesinger, associate vice chancel-
ior for Information and
Instructional Technology
Services. "They can apply for
admission to colleges and univer-
sities, and once accepted, register
for courses."


The offerings also meet the
educational needs of on-campus
students who seek occasional
online formats to meet their con-
tent, time and scheduling needs,
she said, adding that it "brings
together innovative practices in
higher education organization,
governance, financing and tech-
nology."
"This website will help us to
achieve Goal Two of the Board of
Regents' new Strategic Plan to
create enrollment capacity to
meet the needs of the 100,000
additional students expected to
enroll at University System of
Georgia institutions 'by 2020,"
said Chancellor Erroll B. Davis
Jr. "One of the ways we are
increasing our enrollment capaci-
ty is expanding and emphasizing
our distance-education offer-
ings."
Featured among the 1,600
courses ard 35 programs on the
searchable website are six new
online graduate programs
designed for Georgia teachers. In
a presentation showcasing
Georgia ONmyLINE at the Oct.
10 meeting of the Board of
Regents, Dr. Biesinger said that
each of these degrees will provide
a quality education experience
that is convenient and flexible in
format, complements a practicing
teacher's schedule and environ-
ment and responds quickly to


enrollment growth instead of ask-
ing students to wait a year for the
next available slots.
The six new online master of
education programs that will be
available for admission begin-
ning in January and course regis-
tration later this fall include
instructional technology, middle
grades math and science, second-
ary math, secondary science,
reading, language and literacy,
and a new degree appropriate for
all teaching levels called
Accomplished Teaching.
Two master of arts in teaching
degrees for individuals who wish
to change careers and become
teachers will be available in spe-
cial education and in reading, lan-
guage and literacy.
Five of the USG's colleges of
education are piloting this new
program development and deliv-
ery model. They include
Columbus State University,
Georgia State University, Georgia
Southern University, North
Georgia College and State
University and Valdosta State
University. The five were select-
ed through a proposal process.
Their participation includes
adhering to a set of expectations
for customer service,. quality,
growth and financing. Several of
the programs involve institutional
collaboration to make better use
of expertise and resources.

On November 25, 1947, with the release of the
Waldorf Statement, the Association of Motion
Picture Producers proclaimed the start of the
infamous Hollywood blacklist. The statement
was the film industry's response to a House of
Un-American Activities Committee (HUAC)
investigation into communist influence in
Hollywood.
Six months earlier, the HUAC had held
hearings at which they heard from film indus-
try witnesses that included Ronald Regan and
Waiter Disney. These witnesses named forty-
one people as potential subversives or com-
munists. After the hearings, the committee
targeted nineteen for further investigation,
then ordered ten to appear before them for


; .1, K- '. .*' -m n


questioning at hearings held October 27-30.
The studios and most people working in
Hollywood were outraged. A number of
prominent performers, directors, and produc-
ers formed the Committee for the First
Amendment (CFA) with the objective of forc-
ing the HUAC to stop its investigations. More
prominent members included Humphrey
Bogart, director, John Huston, Danny Kaye,
Groucho Marx, and others. In spite of a vigorous
campaign, their efforts proved unsuccessful.
Now known as the Hollywood 10, those
who appeared before the HUAC in October
refused to answer any of the committee's
questions about their personal lives, claiming
the committee was violating their first
amendment rights. Unimpressed, the com-
mittee cited each one for contempt.
The studios, fearing government inter-
vention, reversed their previous opposition to
the HUAC activities and severed all ties with
the Hollywood 10 in the Waldorf Statement:
We will forthwith discharge or suspend
without compensation those in our employ
and we will not re-employ any of the 10 until
such time as he is acquitted or has purged
himself of contempt and declares under oath
that he is not a Communist.
Fear raced through Hollywood as the
number of blacklisted actors, producers, direc-


tors, and writers grew rapidly. Before the
blacklist expired, more than three hundred
people found their names added to the list.
By 1950, a booklet named Red Channels was
being published and circulated to media
executives, Those whose names appeared
found themselves barred from working in any
entertainment related medium. Among them
were Orson Welles. Pete Seeger, Arthur Miller,
and Edward G. Robinson.
Not until 1960. when Kirk Douglas and
Otto Preminger credited blacklisted screen-
writer Dalton Trumbo for his work on their
films Spartacus and Exodus respectively, did
the blacklist begin to fade away. Want to find
out more about the Hollywood blacklist, and
the consequences suffered by those on it?
Take The Web Journey.

NEXT WEEK: Nearly a century after his death:
some still want to ban his books.

To its north lies Europe and to the south is Africa. On
its easternmost shores are Asia and the Middle East.
For over three thousand years, it has been a highway

TCS students inducted


into National Honor Roll


Six students from the region
qualified for induction into the
spring 2008 National Honor
Roll.
The National Honor Roll
recognizes high-achieving high
school and middle school stu-
dents.
"Young people such as our
inductees, who work hard to
attain academic success,
deserved to be congratulated,"
says Lynn Romeo, publisher of
the National Honor Roll.
"Honoring their achievements
provides motivation and
encourages them to continue
striving toward their goals.
We're proud to include them in
the National Honor Roll."
Two students from Tallavana
Christian School were named
to the honor roll: Ryann
Harvell, of Chattahoochee, and
Clesha Parrish, of Quincy.
Other area students named to
the honor roll were
Courtneyann Fabrizi of Cairo,
Ga., Lywilla Henderson of
Tallahassee, Dorando Morrison
of Tallahassee and Demetrius


Richardson of Tallahassee.
The National Honor Roll
offers several benefits that can
contribute to the success of its
student members. For the stu-'
dents in the 2006-2007 school
year, the National Honor Roll
set aside $25,000 to be shared
among 25 of its qualifying
inductees, whether they attend
public or private school or are
home-schooled.
All members are entitled to
compete for these National
Honor Roll Awards for academ-
ic achievement, which are
awarded in December.
-The National Honor Roll
contacts potentially qualifying,
students after reviewing infor-
mation about their academic
'performance.
Each student is asked to sub-
mit information about his or her
GPA, interests, activities and
future goals. Only students
with a B or better average are
eligible to be listed in the
National Honor Roll.

District school psychologist

speaks at statewide conference


Rita T. Carter, Ph.D., a
school psychologist with the
district, presented at the annual
2007 Florida Association of
School Psychologist Conference
held in Daytona Florida,
November 7-10 2007. Her pres-
entation, "The School
Psychologist in the Classroom
Supporting the Learning
Process," was based on her
teaching of test-taking strate-
gies, social skills, the power of
positive thinking, and Brain
Gyms to positively impact
learning outcomes and success


on the FCAT. Dr. Carter also
shared her successful advocacy.
of the use of music in the class-
room to enhance learning and
reduce behavior problems.
She shared FCAT data and
positive teacher and student
evaluations of the services pro-
vided. The information provid-
ed was well received by the
attendees with some indicating
they will be trying some of the
strategies in their schools, espe-
cially the services provided in
the ISS program as done at East
Gadsden High School.
