Chattahoochee man killed in crash


Single-car accident claims life of 19-year-old


By LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor
A one-car crash Saturday evening
claimed the life of a 19-year-old
Chattahotchee man near the
intersection of Hardaway Highway
and Timmons Road.
Authorities say Robert Michael
Presnell Jr. was pronounced dead at
the scene.


The wreck occurred around 6:47
p.m. Saturday as Presnell drove west
on County Road 268. Law
enforcement officers closed the road
for hours Saturday evening and
continued to investigate the scene
Sunday morning.
According to Florida Highway Patrol
reports, Presnell tried to pass a vehicle
in front of him and lost control of the
1997 Pontiac TransAm he was driving.


The car traveled onto the grassy
southern shoulder of the road,
continued westward and hit a culvert,
causing the car to become airborne and
overturn. As the vehicle overturned,
Presnell was ejected from the vehicle.
The Gadsden County Sheriffs
Office, Gadsden County Emergency
Medical Services and the Gretna
Volunteer Fire Department assisted
FHP at the scene.


Haire retires


Major Tommy Haire of the Gadsden County Sheriff's Office last day on the job was Friday.
Above, Major David Gainous presents Haire with a gold watch in honor of his years of service. A
sit down dinner was held two weeks ago to honor Haire and Friday afternoon co-workers
enjoyed ice cream and cake during an official sendoff. Haire, who has 35 years in law
enforcement, came out of retirement three years ago when Morris Young was elected sheriff. He
said he told Young he wasn't going to stay long. Haire served 10 years with the Quincy Police
Department, 22 years under former Sheriff W.A. Woodham and three years with Young. A
major in charge of investigations.Haire said he always got a good feeling when he and deputies
were able to solve cases and return property to the victims. The biggest case of his career was as
lead investigator in the homicide of Fletcher Fenn. All four suspects were apprehended, tried,
convicted and served time in prison for the crime. He has no immediate plans, except to go
fishing, and finally get to the "to do" list that is wife, Peggy, has for him. On his first day off,
Monday, Haire spent bagging leaves. Twenty-four bags to be exact. (Photo by Leslie Roberts)

Wal-Mart celebrates 25 years in Florida


Quincy store recognized as first in


Associates who have worked at Wal-Mart's Quincy store since it
first opened the doors on Nov. 16, 1982 Mary Conway, Ben
Oliver, Hazel Mathews and Liz Sasser receive special recognition
for their work with the company at Wal-Mart's 25th Anniversary
in Florida celebration Friday in Orlando. (Photo submitted).


ORLANDO, Fla. Wal-Mart
Friday celebrated the 25th
anniversary of the opening of its
first store in Florida in Quincy.
Gov. Charlie Crist was on hand
to congratulate Wal-Mart and
recognize the retailer for their
financial and social impact in the
state.
Associates who have worked


for Wal-Mart since it first opened
the doors at the Quincy store
joined the governor at the
celebration and received special
recognition from Wal-Mart's vice
president and regional general
manager for north Florida, David
Norman. The recognition
highlighted Wal-Mart's
commitment to provide a good


the state


job, when and where Floridians
need them.' And in many cases,
these initial hourly jobs become
careers as more than two-thirds
of management started as hourly
associates.
The celebration took place at
one of Florida's newer
Supercenters at 8990 Turkey
Lake Road in Orlando. The


"Turkey Lake Road" store
symbolizes Wal-Mart's
commitment to serving the needs
of each community where it
resides. The store's Tuscan
architecture and services specific
to local residents and Orlando's
thriving tourism population
demonstrate that the retailer has
come a long way in 25 years.

A free exchange of ideas is necessary for good government and good communities.


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

By Alice DuPont, Editor



Contemplation




We have much to be thankful for


As much as I complain, I must admit that
I have a lot for which to be thankful. Most
people in this country are far better off
than their counterparts in other countries.
I don't know if its because we're wasteful
or because we are accustomed to having so
much that we take things for granted.
Take me, I hardly remember the time
when we didn't have two freezers and they
were always filled with food.
Growing up in rural Gadsden County had
its advantages, although I did not
appreciate itat the time. We had a large
(kitchen) garden and my Daddy always
planted string (and other kinds too) beans,
tomatoes, peas, okra, and a sprinkling of
other vegetables. My mother canned
vegetables all summer and made all sorts
of jellies and jams from the fig, pear, and
plum trees in the yard.
As children we didn't eat much candy,
we preferred to go outside and pick fruit
straight off the trees in season. When we
had candy, we made it. On cold nights,
especially during the holidays, Daddy got a
jar of syrup, squeezed from sugar cane
grown in the back yard, grab the peanuts
(we grew those too) and Mama would get
the butter.
After the peanuts and syrup cooked
together and it was cool enough to handle,
Mama spread butter on our hands and we


sat around the kitchen table pulling candy
until it became shiny. The next step was to
roll the concoction into small balls and lay
it out on wax paper, which was placed in
the refrigerator, to harden. The next day,
we had candy. One or two pieces were
plenty for me however.
Mama cooked breakfast for us everyday.
The closest thing we got to fast food was
oatmeal. It was eggs, grits, bacon or
sausage, and biscuits for breakfast. Oh, I
envied those children who had corn flakes
or frosted flakes everyday. I thought they
were so lucky.
When we had hot dogs or hamburgers, it
was a real treat. I lbved it when my
brothers had company sleeping over for
the weekend. I knew we were going to
have hot dogs, baked beans and cole slaw
and kool-aid that Friday for supper. Those
were my favorite days.
I complained that I was tired of eating
steaks, pork chops, and ham all the time. It
wasn't until I became and adult that I
realized just how blessed we were as
children. While there are people who are,
no doubt without enough food in this
country and one is too many, we all have a
lot to be thankful for at Thanksgiving.
Whatever your plight in this world, there
is something for which we can all say
"thank you."

Can't see the forest for the trees


I'm one of those "Fifteen Minutes" thankful
guys.
I don't rightly recall being born but I'm sure
I took a look around, bowed for a moment of
thanks, and went to examining all the funny
faces peering down at me. I was sure thankful
for a Mom that didn't scream at me and a
Father who kept bringing home the bacon. But
after an appropriate pause I went to criticizing
the lady because she spent too much time with
my brothers and I assailed the big guy about
the inherit dangers of too much pork in your
diet. I suggested malted shakes, fries and
Coca-Colas.
Miss Carolyn, in the first grade, wouldn't let
the kids make fun of my name. I was sure.
thankful and she was a hero....until she
insisted on them spelling bees! Come
November she had us cutting out turkeys,
pilgrims, Indians and shoes with big buckles.
She also read to us about Miles Standish. And
'she proclaimed how thankful we should be for
all the bounties of life. We spent a week
preparing for and celebrating Thanksgiving.
I listened carefully and I was truly thankful.
But, remember, this was back in the days
when they let the grown-ups eat
first.....especially on holiday feasts! It's kinda
hard to be thankful when you're regulated to
the bedroom or the front porch steps while
over sized aunts and uncles and grown-up
cousins gorge themselves on the best part of
the turkey and all of the creamed corn and
sweet potato casserole. Mother preached
patience to us while her kinfolks stripped the.
table clean! I've witnessed many
a'Thanksgivings when Me, Leon and David
Mark were left to fight over a chicken neck '
and a spoonful of cold rutabagas.
It was hard to give thanks for
Leon....especially when he was boxing me
around a bit about the head and
shoulders....which was most of the time. And
Dave just tagged along everywhere I went!
Brother Hatcher gave me a little white
testament when I was baptized. I was so proud
of it. For "fifteen minutes". Then I got caught
up in a ping pong game in the church
basement. Miss Floy took our Sunday School
class to the picture show. And I sat next to
Charlotte Melton on the church hayride. My
exceedingly short attention span had worked
its way in there between me and a proper
thanksgiving.
I played baseball in every open field, parking
lot and stadium from Estill Springs to
Memphis. I suited up for basketball and ran up
and down that court like I had good sense. I
got knocked out in football games from one
end of West Tennessee to the other.... I was
so busy using a few of the remarkable gifts
and opportunities God had given me I didn't
have time to thank anybody.
*We paused every Fourth of July to eat some
barbeque, watch the parade and reflect on the
foresight and resounding resolute of our
founding fathers. Dad "saw to it" that we
understood this day. And I was truly grateful.


And thankful. And respectful. But I was a lot
more interested in throwing cherry bombs at
Pam Collins or racing Bobby Brewer across
the town square or climbing out on the barrel
of the World War I cannon that guarded Dr.
Holmes office.
I graduated from high school And college.
It's amazing how much knowledge and
growth one can obtain between cutting out
Miles Standish shoe buckles and a college
thesis on the lasting effect of the importation
of the German Volkswagen on the American
economy. I wasn't as thankful as I was
relieved the all night, grind-it-out study
sessions were over. And I now had to find a
job for goodness sakes! Sadly, I haven't used,
or given back, near as much as I was handed.
I got married. And I was truly appreciative of
the beautiful, nice, polite and cheerful young
lady that God sent my way. I gave thanks. But
then I got to thinking "if this girl had a'brought
a little more money into the marriage, I
wouldn't have to work so hard".
I kept forgetting that verse about being
content with what we have.....
We had a child. Amazing! For the first time
in my life I was not only thankful but filled
with that utter wonder lust only a first born son
can bring. And listen, my thanks giving was
genuine! But what about the decisions that lay
ahead for me? I had heard about those "terrible
twos". Mercy, I would have a teenager one
day! What if he rebels? Or runs off and joins a
convent Or comes in one day and tells me he
wants to trade me for Amy's father.....
I counted chickens that never did hatch.
Our second son brought even more joy. And
more thanks giving. I was going to let this one
raise himself..... I had learned my lesson! But
you know it's hard to change an old dog....My
thanks got buried somewhere between the
fussing and the worrying! I got so busy
reminding them to say "yes sir" and "yes
ma'am" and seeing that they stood just right
and were polite just right and weren't too
pushy or obnoxious that I missed some of the
joy ....
And I have an important job. There's oil
leaking on the rear brakes of my truck. The St.
Louis Cardinals had a terrible season.
Someone invariably calls right in the middle of
"The Beverly Hillbillies" reruns. Cathy's
sisters are coming to visit. And I've got to
meet a deadline.....
Somehow the everyday routine got in the
way of my thanksgiving. I was, and am, so
busy I forget sometimes how much I have
been blessed.....how much of the "good stuff'
has just dropped into my lap! No one on earth
has ever been given more!
Except maybe for you!
This Thanksgiving let's be smarter than the
average guy. Let's worry and brood and be
moody for "fifteen minutes" and let's spend
the rest of our lives giving thanks for the fruits
and goodness that abounds on every side.....
SHappy Thanksgiving,
Kes

Savoring the taste


It occurs to me this year in particular
that Thanksgiving began as a
community tradition.
When those Pilgrims and Native
Americans of yesteryear gathered to
share food, ideas and a sense of
survivorship, they also strengthened
the bond they had, albeit tenuous at
times.
That strikes me now as I think about
heading into my eighth year as a
Gadsden County resident. Since
moving here, I've met people who
commit noble acts every day in the
classroom, stop to help a stranded
motorist; get together to support a.
struggling family and give up family
time and rest and relaxation to make
Gadsden County a better place for us
all to live.
In the last five years especially, I've
asked for help and been asked to help.
Sometimes I think those are the two
most important abilities a person can
possess.

of Gadsden County


I turn another year older on
Thanksgiving and that's a lot to be
thankful for right there.
I've driven down this county's
seductive backroads in every season,
seen the daffodils give way to crepe
myrtles, the green give way to burnt
orange and flaming red.
I'm thankful for the net that gets
woven around newcomers, bit by bit,
until it reaches underneath them, ready
to catch them should they fall.
We don't have a mall, a movie
theater (yet) or an amusement park. I
count those as things to be grateful for
a well, although one or all of those
things will find its way here soon
enough.
I once believed, being someone who
moved frequently during childhood,
that moving into a community you had
not been born into was unforgivable to
native residents. This year, I'm really
happy to say that Gadsden County
Proved me wrong.

KIRKLAND

from Page 1


The vehicle had been stolen
earlier in the evening from a
Tallahassee apartment complex.
The parking lot was filled with
kids that night just after the
homecoming dance ended.
Parents were picking up kids and
deputies and hired security guards
were directing traffic. That's
when, witnesses said, the 2000
Infiniti sped through the parking
lot. When officers approached the
vehicle to stop, the driver backed
away at a high rate of speed. The
driver hit about six cars, before
hitting the Rileys. Crystal was
taken by helicopter to the hospital,
but died hours later.
Tears slid down John Riley's
cheeks as a victim advocate read a
letter written by Cynthia Riley. In
the letter she recounted the
sleepless nights and the recurring
nightmare.
"Nothing will bring Crystal
back. We were a little displeased
with the sentence but, at least the
healing process can begin now for
my sister and brother-in-law" said
Charles Hayes, Crystal's uncle.
"We can't see Crystal again, they
can visit their son."
Jacqueline Dilworth, Kirkland's
mother, asked the judge to have
mercy on her son. John Leace,
Kirkland's attorney asked the
court to sentence Kirkland as a
youthful offender. He was 16-
years-old when the incident
occurred il the parking lot of
EGHS while operating a stolen
vehicle.
Kirkland will be 40-years-old
when he is released. He was
sentenced to 10 years probation
. and._.mut,_d inghaLtimeay
back nearly $100.000 in
restitution. He was gi\en credit,
for 407 days served in the county
jail.


Letters

to the

Editor


Editor;
If you work at the Florida State Hospital
(FSH) or the Mentally Retarded Defendant
Program (MRDP) and have been attacked by
one ofyour higher-functioning "residents",
please read this. As explained to me by the state
attorney's office last week, MRDP/FSH staff
may have some legal recourse in dealing with
these violent attacks, but only if staff step
forward.
If only one MRDP or FSH staff tries to press
only one charge against a "resident" who
violently attacks tem, that staff member, as an
individual, might be turned down by the the
state attorney's office. (The state attorney's
office has said "The defendant is already a
forensic client. Internal sanctions are
sufficient.") No other staff who was violently
attacked by that "resident" pressed charges or
provided documentation to the state attorney's
office. Thus, despite the "resident's" multiple
violent attacks on MRDP or FSH staff- he
"resident" may go back to his county and never
be held legally accountable for the violent
crimes he committed in Chattahoochee. With
no additional official legal charges on his record
(because staff would not come forward), the
"resident" could then be set free in his
community to violently attack more people.
However, as I understood the assistant state
attorney's conversation with me, other MRDP
or FSH staff could come forward with their
charges/documentation of that "resident's"
violent attack on them. That information --
coupled with the other staffperson's single
charge could be enough to convince the state
attorney's office to re-review the case. Then the
charges might be picked up.
So if you have been violently attacked by a
higher-functioning resident (and did not report
it), I think you should consider calling the
Chattahoochee Police Department (663-4383)
and press charges. You can also call the state
attorney's office in Quincy (627-9647) and, like
myself, get more guidance on this legal issue.

Editor:

Thanksgiving is much more than a big meal
with family and friends. It's a time to reflect on,.
and be thankful for, all of the good things you
have. It's important to be grateful, not just on
Thanksgiving, but each and every day. Rather
than lamenting what you feel is lacking in your
life, begin each new day be developing an
attitude of gratitude. Take inventory of your


blessings and you will be surprised at just how
much you have to be thankful for. If you have
enough to eat, a place to live, a way to get
around, people who care about you, or people
you care about, then you are wealthy. If ou
lack any of these elements, you must still be
grateful for what you do have, while striving to
obtain whatever is absent. Focus on all positive
aspects of your life. Take nothing for granted.
Every morning, recharge your appreciation. Be
happy for everything there is, not upset over
what you feel is missing. Dreams of the future
shouldn't diminish appreciation for the present.
If all you do is concentrate on what you want,
you won't enjoy today. Don't be jealous of
others; what they do or have has no bearing on
you. You can feel bitter or resentful for a variety
of reasons. Perhaps you feel something is
missing from your life, things aren't going your
way, or you have been treated unfairly. You
may wonder, 'Why do these things always
happen to me?" Life's problems tend to
dominate your thoughts, turning your focus to
what you feel is wrong. You may start to resent
those who appear to be better off. You're apt to
dwell on.things you think would make your life
better if you had them. If only you had more
money, more time, a bigger house, a different
job, a different boss, ha picked a different
career, etc. Once your attitude becomes one of
deficiency instead of abundance and
appreciation, you can become overwhelmed by
feelings of frustration and feel like a victim. As
this happens, a consuming vicious cycle starts.
Situations deteriorate and their mental and
physical health decays. It's difficult, if not
impossible, to achieve your goals while you are
bitter or resentful. Regardless of what challenges
might befall you, bitterness makes finding
solutions much more elusive. There is no point
to feeling bitter since it accomplishes nothing,
harms you and makes things worse. Filling
yourself with gratitude on a daily basis makes
you fed good, while driving out negative
feelings. Begin your practice of gratitude each
morning as soon as you wake. Every day is a
great day. As you do this, you will build and
reinforce your attitude. Don't waste time with
what you feel you don't have. Keep things in
perspective. Consider all the people who have
overcome difficulties far worse than yours..
Don't be consumed by your problems, there is
always a solution. Maintaining an attitude of
.gratitude allows your mind to devise a
resolution for your circumstances. Make
everyday a day of Thanksgiving and you will be
amazed how much better your life will become.

Former coach sentenced to more than four years for molestation

Timothy Brown, the former
girls basketball coach at East

In addition he will serve five

season weight training session.
The incident occurred in Brown's
automobile.
Before the sentence was
announced, Brown asked Judge
Tom Bateman to look at his total
life and consider what he has con-
tributed to the community
throughout the years. He
described himself as a late
bloomer and said his life actually
began six months ago with the
birth of his son. He asked to be
allowed to return home and take
care of his wife and child.


"I am no threat to anyone. If
you throw me a rope, I will make
any and everybody proud," he
said, "the label (sex offender) does
not define me. I have hope, give
me a rope."
But Assistant State Attorney
Richard Combs said that Brown
crossed the line with a student who
was a member of the basketball
team he coached.
"This is a relationship, not of
co-equals, but of a coach and a
player," Combs said, adding,
"people were not aware of his dark


side." He called Brown's offense
"aggregious" because he had con-
trol over the student and utilized
his position to make the student a
willing participant: Combs
reminded the court of a Leon
County coach who was thought by
many people in the community to
be a fine, upstanding teacher until
he crossed the line with a student.
"I have coached (baseball) for
over 20 years. You have to be a
special person to be a coach but
you have to abide by the law. I was
a little surprised by the verdict, but


a jury of your peers found differ-
ently," said Judge Bateman.
"I have known him for over 20
years. He has worked with young
ladies for years. He is a person of
great moral integrity. This young
man deserves an opportunity to
come back into this community.
He can do more for this communi-
ty on this side rather than incarcer-
ated," the Rev. Tan Moss said.
Brown was immediately taken
to the county jail. He has 30 days
to appeal the verdict and the sen-
tence.

PROPOSED CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT
TO BE VOTED ONJANJARY 29, 2008
NOTICE OF ELECTION
I, Kurt S. Browning, Secretary of State of the State of Florida, do hereby give notice that an
election will be held in each county in Florida, on January 29, 2008, for the ratification or
rejection of a proposed revision to the constitution of the State of Florida.

No. 1
CONSTITUTIONAL REVISION
ARTICLE VII, SECTIONS 3, 4, AND 6
ARTICLE XII, SECTION27
(Legislative)

Ballot Title:
PROPERTY TAX EXEMPTIONS; LIMITATIONS ON PROPERTY TAX ASSESSMENTS

Ballot Summary:
This revision proposes changes to the State Constitution relating to property taxation. With
respect to homestead property, this revision: (1) increases the homestead exemption except
for school district taxes and (2) allows homestead property owners to transfer up to $500,000
of their Save-Our-Homes benefits to their next homestead. With respect to nonhomestead
property, this revision (3) provides a $25,000 exemption for tangible personal property and
(4) limits assessment increases for specified nonhomestead real property except for school
district taxes.

In more detail, this revision:
(1) Increases the homestead exemption by exempting the assessed value between
$50,000 and $75,000. This exemption does not apply to school district taxes.
(2) Provides for the transfer of accumulated Save-Our-Homes benefits. Homestead
property owners will be able to transfer their Save-Our-Homes benefit to a new homestead
within 1 year and not more than 2 years after relinquishing their previous homestead; except,
if this revision is approved by the electors in January of 2008 and if the new homestead
is established on January 1, 2008, the previous homestead must have been relinquished in
2007. If the new homestead has a higher just value than the previous one, the accumulated
benefit can be transferred; if the new homestead has a lower just value, the amount of benefit
transferred will be reduced. The transferred benefit may not exceed $500,000. This provision
applies to all taxes.
(3) Authorizes an exemption from property taxes of $25,000 of assessed value of
tangible personal property. This provision applies to all taxes.
(4) Limits the assessment increases for specified nonhomestead real property to
10 percent each year. Property will be assessed at just value following an improvement, as
defined by general law, and may be assessed at just value.following a change of ownership or
control if provided by general law. This limitation does not apply to school district taxes. This
limitation is repealed effective January 1, 2019, unless renewed by a vote of the electors in the
general election held in 2018.

Further, this revision:
a. Repeals obsolete language on the homestead exemption when it was less than
$25,000 and did not apply uniformly to property taxes levied by all local, governments.
b. Provides for homestead exemptions to be repealed if a future constitutional
amendment provides for assessment of homesteads "at less than just value" rather than as
currently provided "at a specified percentage" of just value.
c. Schedules the changes to take effect upon approval by the electors and operate
retroactively to January 1, 2008, if approved in a special election held on January 29, 2008, or
to take effect January 1, 2009, if approved in the general election held in November of 2008.
The limitation on annual assessment increases for specified real property shall first apply to
the 2009 tax roll if this revision is approved in a special election held on January 29, 2008, or
shall first apply to the 2010 tax roll if this revision is approved in the general election held in
November of 2008.

Bethune-Cookman


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

Quincy's Phillip Kirkland
made his presence known early
in the 34-7 rout of Bethune-
Cookman University over
Florida A & M University in the
Florida Classic Saturday after-
noon in Orlando.
Kirkland set the stage early
in the game by gaining signifi-
cant yardage with, a simple
hand-off that he took down the
left side for 15 yards, then on the
same play 25 yards. He:carried


for 81 yards throughout the game
with an average of 13.5 yards
per carry.
But Kirkland and the
Wildcats, suffering from a poor
season too, were able to get up
for the team that has been their
nemisis since the series started.
The Classic has been played for
the past 28 years, The last time
B-CU won was in 2002.
But the Wildcats didn't want
to talk about the past. It was the
here and now for players and
fans alike.
Justin Brannori did all of his


3 minutes to go when they used a
press to get away with the. win.
Ben Young had 2 steals and a cou-
ple of late buckets to help Munroe
pull that game out.
Young finished the night with
10 points and Clark got 7 leading
the Bobcat scoring.
Clark got 15 in the win over
Popular Thursday night. In that
game the Bobcats were behind b\


12 points early in the fourth quar-.
ter when their press again worried
their opponents. Late key free
throws by Cook heped Munroe
pull out that win.
Young and John Hilton Revell
each had 9 points to help Clark in
the scoring.
Munroe hosted Carter-
Parramore Tuesday and will host

rushed for 140 yards and one
touchtown: B-CU also capital-
ized on Rattler turnovers in the
Citrus Bowl before a crowd of
over 65,000. In all, the Wildcats
rushed for 336 yards.
B-CU turned the four FAMU
fumbles into 21 points, iriclud-
ing a 36-yard fumble punt return
by Ben Billard.
The one bright spot for
FAMU Saturday afternoon was,
Phillip Sylvester, who was
named he Rattler Most Valuable
Player. FAMU quarterback,


freshman Eddie Battles, played
in his first Florida Classic, but
bragging rights in the state's
black community went to the
Wildcats. Despite the Rattler's
commanding lead in the series,
45-15-1. losing in the Classic is
not good for the FAMU faithful.
FAMU's offense had trouble
throughout the game and didn't
get a first down until nearly five
minutes' before the end of the
first half. During the second
half, FAMU tried to make
adjustments, but B-CU proved
to be too much.

Students in the certified
nursing assistant program at
Gadsden Technical Institute
will soon be able to take their
state-required certification
tests without having to leave
campus.
Up until now, testing for
those wanting to become certi-
fied as CNAs in the region
was available only at
Westminster Oaks retirement
community in Tallahassee, a
retirement home in Wakulla
County and a site in Marianna.
But the company that pro-
duces the tests for the state,
Pro Metric, is moving toward
computerized testing for at
least a portion of the certifica-
tion process' and contacted
GTI about .serving as a test
site, GTI Patient Care
Technology Program Director
Georgann Reffner said.
"The company is going to
computerized testing in
January," Reffner said.
"Nursing homes where the
testing was taking place didn't
want to put in a bunch of com-
puters, and we have just put in
a computer lab with more than
20 computers and six more in
the classroom."
State criteria for CNAs now

requires them to have at least
16 hours of computer educa-
tion, Reffner said.
Part of the test those in
CAN programs are required to
take is a computerized multi-
ple choice test; the other part;
the demonstration of five
skills in a didactic situation.
Capital Regional Medical
Center will also be a regional
testing site for CAN students,
Reffner said.
"Students will be able to
test on-campus. It's going to
expedite the testing process

Every year in the United States on the fourth Thursday of November, families around the nation gather together for a day of feasting, family
time, and even football! Thanksgiving is a national holiday, celebrated annually, which is set aside to give thanks for the many blessings you
have experienced in the last year and the ones you have to look forward to in the year to come. All schools, and almost all businesses. are
closed for this holiday. The Friday after is also a day that many employers and schools close. This day is also known as the official first day of
the Christmas Season. This Friday has become almost a holiday within itself, with many traditions of its own, including decorating for Christmas and shopping!
The history of Thanksgiving Day dates all the way back to 1621. A group of people from Europe, known as the Pilgrims, voyaged to America on a ship named the Mayflower.
While the new American settlers in Plymouth, Massachusetts, tned to establish colonies, they endured great hardships. The local Indians in the area, the.Wampanoag Tribe,
saw the Pilgrims in desperate need for food and shelter. Being a friendly and gracious tribe, they aided the colonists by teaching them how to harvest the local lands and
how to build shelters from local materials. Because of the generosity of the indians, the settlers were able to survive the winter The Wampanoag Tribe had a ritual which
they performed five times a year. They would gather together over a large feast to celebrate and give thanks for their many blessings To thank the tribe for all their help, the
Pilgrims prepared a feast in the Wampanoag's honor. The Pilgrims and the Indians dined together; this was the very first Thanksgiving dinner It has become an American
tradition ever since. In 1863, President Abraham Lincoln declared Thanksgiving Day a national holiday.

IRS: Nineteen in Gadsden have refunds awaiting


By LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor

According to the IRS, 19
Gadsden County residents have
refunds waiting for them.
All they have to do to claim
them is visit the IRS website or


call a toll-free number, said
Gloria Sutton, IRS
spokeswoman for North and
Central Florida.
"There are a variety of reasons
for refunds being returned to the
IRS," she said. "Most
commonly, we find individuals


have moved. When people move,
they need to put in a change of
address with the IRS there is a
form for that, 8822 as well as
the post' office. Another reasons
refunds are returned is that
sometimes when people use
paper tax returns they


inadvertently leave off apartment
numbers or other information.
When you file electronically,
that doesn't happen."
A total of $13,730 in
undeliverable refunds averaging
$722 each from Gadsden County
went back to the IRS in 2007.


Refunds that are returned to the
IRS are credited to the
taxpayer's account and will
show up the next time that
person files a tax return, Sutton
said.
To check on your tax refund,
visit IRS.gov and click on


"Where's my refund." Those
without Internet access can call
1-800-829-1954 to check on a
refund.
"Generally, when people
claim a refund it is back to
them in four-to six weeks,"
Sutton said.


P&Z board denies density request


Humane Society's little helper


By LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor

The Gadsden County Planning
and Zoning Commission voted
down a request Nov. 15 to
increase density on a 218-acre
parcel of land near Havana.
During Thursday's regular
commission meeting,
commissioners voted 4-5 against
changing the land use designation
on tow parcels totaling 218 acres
from agriculture-3, which would
permit one house be built per 20
acres, to agriculture-1, which
allows one house to be built per 5
acres of land.
The property in question is
located on the south side of
Shady Rest Road west of Lanier
Road and east of Havana
Highway.


In other matters,
commissioners: .
* Postponed until December a
decision on a request to change
land use on eight parcels and a
portion of a ninth parcel
comprising 2,067 acres from
agriculture-3 to agriculture-2,
which would permit one house
per 10 acres. The property is
along the east and west sides of
Iron Bridge Road, the east and
west sides of Concord-
Bainbridge Road and west of and
adjacent to the Ochlockonee
River.
Approved a request to change
the land use on a 2-acre parcel
from agriculture-2 to commercial
land use. The property .is on the
east side of Scotland Road and
the south side of the CSX
Railroad roughly 1.5 miles south


of Havana.
* Approved a preliminary site
plan for Crossroads Academy
Charter School. The plan calls for
relocation of the school to a
12.27-acre parcel on the south
side of Strong Road. The request
was approved pending a
determination from Gadsden
County Commission Dec. 4 on
whether the school will have to
provide a sidewalk for the site.
Approved a preliminary site
plan from Garrison Construction
for proposed light industrial use
on a 2.84-acre parcel in the
industrial land use category in the
Gadsden Commercial Exchange
subdivision. Commissioners also
approved a Garrison Construction
preliminary site plan for a light
industrial use on a 6-acre parcel
in Concord.


J.J. Dolan, 2, of Chattahoochee, raised $635 in October to benefit the Gadsden County Humane
Society. J.J. is the son of Johnny and Christie Dolan. J.J. collected donations and trick-or-treated for
homeless animals. He and presented his check to Michele Vaught, GCHS president, on Nov. 4. In turn,
members of the Humane Society gave J.J. a GCHS t-shirt and a certificate of appreciation. The
toddler is now a lifetime member of the GCHS. Those who would like to donate or volunteer with
GCHS can call 539-0505 or visit the GCHS website at www.gadsdenhumane.org.

Tallavana to hold fish fry


Funds to go to repair or replacement of gymnasium floor


by LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor

Looking for a way to support
local student athletes and get a
good meal in the bargain?
Try Tallavana Christian
School's Nov. 27 fish fry at
Havana Park, which promises to
combine good, food and good
company for a good cause.
"Our gym floor was painted
over years ago when the school
changed from Gadsden Christian
School to Tallavana Christian
School. It is in desperate need of
repair," said Tallavana Athletic
Booster Club President Lisa
Crawford. "Really, it needs to be
replaced rather than repaired.
Children in grades 3K and up all
use the gym every day, and it's


also used for athletics. This is a
major purchase we are going to
have to work towards."
The school is in the process
of revitalizing its athletics pro-
gram, Crawford said, with the
addition of a new athletic direc-
tor, Gail Smith, and a variety of
sports disciplines: Girls' junior
varsity and varsity volleyball,
girls' varsity basketball, boys'
junior varsity and varsity basket-
ball, soccer, baseball and soft-
ball.
In the process, the school
hopes to reconnect with commu-
nity ties that it had in the past as
well as to forge new ones.
"We want to move toward
community relationships and
toward building the kinds of
community relationships that we


used to have," Crawford said.
The Nov. 27 fish fry is from
5-8 p.m. Meals include two fish
fillets, French fries, cheese grits,
corn on the cob, cake, and sweet
and unsweetened tea.
"The fish is from the same
folks who prepared the fish for
the volunteer fire department
fish fry at Coon Bottom,"
Crawford noted.
Participants can pick up
meals or eat at the park; the cost
is $7 per plate. -Donations for the
school will also be accepted,
Crawford said.
To buy tickets, contact a TCS
basketball player or coach, or
call one of the athletic boosters
at 509-7215 or 524-0749. The
school office also has tickets
available:

"To be good is noble, but to teach others
how to be good is nobler--and less trouble."
Mark Twain, Doctor Van Dyke speech, 1906.


Sam was only eleven when his father died ir
1847. Within a year, he was forced to end hi
formal education and become a printer'"
apprentice under his older brother. Orion. A
work, he helped print other people's words fo
the world to read. Years later, others would
print his words for the world to read. In his
twilight years, his lifetime of words had so
affected the world that Yale University, the
University of Missouri, and Oxforc
University in England all awarded
him honorary degrees.
His story of a younc
man growing up in Missour
s remains the seventh mos
purchased book by
B' .' libraries in the Unitec
i States, ranking behind
only such works as the
Bible, Homer. and the
l .\ liod. Between 199(
and 2000, its pres
ence on library
shelves was
protested
ofter


n than all but four other books in the world. The
s book is Huckleberry Finn. The author's family
s knew him as Sam Clemens. The world howev-
t er, knows him as Mark Twain.
r Sam was born on November 30, 1835,
d while his family lived in Florida, a little com-
s munity of twenty-one homes on the Salt River
o in rural Missouri. Before Sam turned four, they
e moved to the larger town of Hannibal. where
SSam grew up,
d In 1853, shortly before his eighteenth
birthday, Sam was struck with wanderlust.
S The affliction, common among young men at
ithe time, was characterized by a compelling
t desire to visit new places. To cure himself, Sam
y told his family he would go to St. Louis. He
did, but didn't tell them that, after arriving, he
Should continue traveling eastward until he
e reached the Atlantic Ocean, and New York
e City. After enjoying the bright lights of New
0 York City and Philadelphia for a year, he
returned home.
y His wanderlust had not yet disappeared
s and after three years, he was off again. This
S time, Sam told everyone he planned to
e explore South America. He made it as far as
n New Orleans before changing his mind and
becoming a riverboat pilot. For the next two
and a half years, Sam shepherded Mississippi
riverboats between St Louis and New Orleans.
When the Civil War broke out, riverboat
' traffic dried up, so Sam returned to Hannibal.


There, he succumbed
to the patriotic fervor .
that promised glory"
to those who served
the Confederacy. For
two weeks, he
trained as a
Confederate soldier,
and then deserted to
accompany his
brother to the new
Nevada Territory.
President Lincoln
had appointed soineiclemenCs.AWta
Orion,a staunch aboli- r,an co a9io courtesy
tionist, Secretary of rhe Library o onress
the new territory. After arriving, Sam found..a
job with the Virginia City Enterprise newspaper,
and Mark Twain was bom.
After beginning as a legislative reporter
in the Nevada Legislature, MarkTwain quickly
became one of the most popular writers and
commentators in the West. From then until
his death in 1910,Twain entertained the world
with his stories, amusing anecdotes, public
lectures, and newspaper articles. Over two
thousand years earlier, Alexander the Great
had conquered much of the known world
with his armies. Twain's conquests were no
less glorious, nor any less sweeping. Twain
however, used only a pen and paper,

TCS fourth grade explores Fla. history


Mrs. Haifley's fourth grade
class of Tallavana Christian
School took some excursions
into Florida history last week On
a field trip to the Museum of
Florida History and to San Luis
Mission; both in Tallahassee.
S The Museum of Florida
History was the first stop of the
Sday. Students saw a large skele-
ton of a mastodon, gold and sil-
ver Spanish coins, and many
other things they had learned
About in class. Students crawled
into an Indian canoe, saw a
replica of a steamship, and
enjoyed the kid-friendly


Grandma's Attic where they
could handle things like old


in ,;.
phones, radios, typewriters, and
other things from the past,


From there, the class visited
the historic San Luis Mission
and experienced life with the
Appalachee Indians, Spanish
settlers, a Spanish friar, and sol-
diers.
They toured a fort, a church,
an Indian council house, and
even a Spanish settler's home.
The period-dressed characters
spoke as if they were living in
1703, the year before the
Spanish burned the mission set-
tlement to prevent the conquer-
ing British from getting. the
thriving mission.
The field trip was topped off

with a picnic lunch at the Lake

Where the Indian mounds are
still there to climb.


In all, the day was a rich his-
torical experience for the stu-
dents, the teacher, and the chap-
erones alike.

We Buy Cars, Trucks & SUVs!


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:
:*AII 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 ereat 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.
