A Tallahassee man was killed Sunday
afternoon in a two-car wreck on U.S. 27 in
Havana.
According to Florida Highway Patrol reports,
Rufus Simmons, 74, of Attapulgus, Ga.,
stopped the 1997 Ford he was driving at the
entrance to the Dollar General store at U.S. 27
Facing east. At the same time, Daniel Godwin,
53, of Tallahassee was driving his 2006
Suizuki south on U.S. 27.
Simmons pulled out onto U.S. 27 in an
attempt to cross both southbound lanes and

church issue
2003 moratorium on downtown
storefront churches questioned
by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
In 2003 city commissioners enacted a moratorium on
churches in the downtown business district. The idea
was to try to attract businesses to the city center and
promote revitalization. They were told that it would be
hard to persuade retailers to occupy the store fronts
because churches interrupted the flow of shopping
traffic.
Tuesday night, members of the New Frontier
Kingdom International Ministry appeared before

Long-time county employee retiring


Betty Sue Sadberry leaving clerk's office after 40 years


Betty Sue Sadberry stands next to a cake made in the shape of
the Gadsden County Courthouse during her retirement reception
last Friday;


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
When Betty Sue Sadberry came
to work at the Gadsden County
Clerk's office .in 1967, manual
typewriters and microfiche were
the tools she used to keep track
of legal transactions and circuit
and civil cases.
As deputy clerk, she and other
deputies are charged with
maintaining all of the county's
official records. Hers is a very
important job that Sadberry has
never taken for granted. So, as
people talked about her career
and her dedication to the job and
the people of .the county,
Sadberry did what she is known


'She's really a model
employee with absolute
integrity and
competence. She has a
awareness that she is a
public servant. She does
her job with a smile.'
Clerk of Courts Nicholas
Thomas
most for: her smile.
Growing up in Vernon, FL
Sadberry came to Gadsden
County to live and work in 1967.
She was hired by then Clerk of


the Courts Edwin Baur, who was
replaced by Wayne Hannah, and
she now works for the current
Clerk of Courts Nicholas
Thomas.
Hannah recalled how Sadberry
reacted when he informed her
that the county was going to
convert to a computerized system
of record keeping in 1984.
"I told her that I wanted her to
.go to Orlando for training. She
said 'no, I'm not going' and I told
her that she was going. We all
know that she went," he said,
adding that she became one of
the best computer operators in
the county.
Thomas too praised Sadberry.
"She's really a model employee


with absolute integrity and
competence. She has a awareness
that she is a public servant. She
does her job with a smile. People
sometimes come into the office
upset and mad and she maintains
her demeanor and calms them
down so she can help them,"
Thomas said.
As in any office that handles
public affairs, Sadberry has seen
her share of unusual situations. A
part of her job was to issue
marriage licenses. One of the
questions she must ask is the
number of times the applicant has
been married. Sadberry said she

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

Contemplation




Big 'eyedeas' can begin here


A lot of things make me proud of people
from Gadsden County. Of late, and by
that I mean in the last five years, more
and more people are publishing books.
Last month I spoke to a high school
classmate, Isadore Moye, who told me
about her sister's newly published book.
The author, Daisy M. Saunders, penned
a book entitled "Big Eyes." It's not fiction
and the title belies what's between the
covers. The subtitle holds the clue to just
what the book is about is "Big Eyedeas
for Achieving Optimum Success in
Business and in Life."
Daisy did a great job on this book and I
recommend it because it has a lot of
useful information that anyone, especially
young people, can use in daily living. The
book is easy to read and contains simple,
powerful and practical strategies that
work for anyone and everyone.
In my autographed copy.of the book,
she wrote, "envision the possibilities" and
honestly just reading the awe-inspiring
book has changed my way of thinking
about a lot of things. Daisy was one grade


ahead of me in high school but I always
admired her because she was one of those
people who was smart and always carried
herself with an air of sophistication.
So I'm really not surprised that Daisy
has written this kind of book. In her
words, the book is not just about
achieving success, it's about achieving
optimum success.
If you're wondering what's the
difference, she said, success is personal
and means different things to different
people, optimum success takes your
personal definition to another level.
Optimum implies best, highest, unequaled
or unmatched.
In order to help the reader, Daisy has
included exercises for the reader so that
realizing their goals and potential are
clearer. I agree with Dr. Erieka Bennett
shen she said that "Big Eyes is not just
the title of the book. It is a challenge to
do something. It provides simple, easy to
implement, how-to strategies that show us
how to achieve excellence in every area
of our lives."


Cathy told me she wanted a new mail box
for Christmas. Whew! That's better than a
genuine pearl necklace. Or a diamond watch,
a Tahiti cruise, an extreme make over or the
complete Box Set of Remington Steele CDs!
I fully understand that I may be getting off
"easy" this year. But I've got a serious
problem or two with a new mail box......
First of all, I like the one we've got.
There's some character there. It's been
backed into a half a dozen times and I run
the lawnmower into it just about every time I
make that tight turn between the driveway
and the street. I can't tell you the times I've
had to straighten it up. I've weed-eated a
trench in the post just above ground level.
The little curved "pulley thing" is broken off.
You have to use your finger nails and pry a
little to get it open. I know a couple of the
wooden decorative slats have come unglued.
But I did find one of them and I've got it
sitting kind'a straight and almost in the right
spot.
I've gotten to know this mailbox. I like the
way it tilts a little to the north. I love the
casual look of it. The charm it displays in a
rather bland, nondescript way. I appreciate
that it has weathered rain, sleet, pestilence
and hurricanes for our benefit. I can
remember when it had "1310" displayed
proudly in big bold "stick on" numbers on
both sides. It helps people find the house,
"just go down to the ugly mailbox and turn
in".
It may be a classic.
It is paid for.
And Cathy wants to "toss it out" like a
worn out old umbrella.
I think we've got to give a little more
credence to the past history, use and
"feelings" of this box. It has been with us for
ages. It has worked its way into our hearts. It
has brought us birth announcements,
baseball schedules, pictures of our
grandchildren, Golf Digest, wedding
invitations, letters, gifts, Merle Haggard
tickets, credit card offers, J C Penny
catalogues, water bills, AARP cards, news
from Oral Roberts University, free internet
CDs, million dollar sweepstakes, offers to
help the needy in Ruanda......
I reckon Cathy's sense of nostalgia is
overcome by the "eye sore" she thinks our
mail box has become. I fear it's going the
way of the dinosaur, wax records, hoola
hoops, moon hub caps and duck tail
haircuts......
It's our neighbors fault. Our old box didn't
look all that bad till they went and put up
that brand new white one right beside ours!
It has the architecturally pleasing cut knob
adorning the top of the "real" mailbox post
that holds the shinny metal box ramrod
straight and facing directly to the street. All
their numbers are, of course, still in their
proper place. I think they paint it every other
day! They've still got that red flag thing on
the side of theirs!
I asked Cathy if they rushed out and


bought a new car would you want one, too.
She pointed out that they had brought home
three new cars since we purchased the van in
'95. I shut up as I saw this conversation was
getting a might deeper than I was willing to
go......
What happen to the days when a sweater
and box of chocolate was enough!
And this is not a bah humbug story. I love
Christmas. I love the thought of the .
stockings hanging so carefully by the
chimney, the fake icicles glimmering on the
tree, the chestnuts roasting on an open fire,
horses pulling the sleigh across a snow
covered field..... I love the little kids literally
glowing with anticipation. I love the
closeness of family, real friends and Jesus. I
want to linger after the presents are opened
and remember Christmas's past.
It is the best time of the year!
But do I have to sacrifice my mail box for
it!
We've got one that works! Why would I
want to dig up a perfectly operational
mailbox and cast it aside! If it ain't broke.....
Plus, if we bought a new one, "some
assembly might be required". You know
what that means! I liked to have killed
myself and ruined a Christmas for a young
mother and two little boys when I spent six
and a half hours on Christmas Eve putting
together a plastic tricycle. It only had eight
separate parts but the picture wasn't the
correct one and the directions were in Hindu.
I cringe when it says "Be sure to check that
all parts are included and read the complete
instructions before beginning....."
Now I know, as Christmas gifts go, a mail
box is not as practical as the Ronco Vegi-
matic I bought her the second year we were
married. Or the wet/dry shop vac I got her
the year after the dish washer leaked and
flooded the kitchen table, five chairs and the
refrigerator out the back door! And a new
mail box may not save her life like the steel
belted radial tire I got her last year probably
did. But it appears I've run out of ideas after
thirty years of Christmas gifts.
I wonder if I could interest her in some
steak knives. Do they have any new "non
stick" woks out this year? I just brought
home a dog I found on the side of the road so
a new puppy is out.
I figured I'd bite the bullet and talk this
Christmas gift thing over. Cathy is pretty
mature. She will understand'my sentiment
for our current mail receptacle. Our marriage
enjoys that special understanding that only
the years can develop..... "Honey, I'm not
sure I can replace our old mailbox."
"That's ok. I've been thinking about a new
Lexus."
"Cathy, would you like that new mail box
to have the same kind of top knob as our
neighbors, do you want it taller than theirs,
I'll get those reflector type numbers, you
want it up for the holidays......"
Respectfully,
Kes

My Twelve Days of Christmas


On the first day of Christmas
With no clue of who it'd be
I drew a name for the company party
On the second day of Christmas
True to holiday history
Two more gifts for gatherings
And a name for the company party
On the third day of Christmas
It then occurred to me
Three less days to shop
More gifts to buy
Payday far away
And a list of gifts that rivaled any Santa
had ever seen.
On the fourth day of Christmas
Set in the earnest spasticity;
Four fell ill at work
Three went home
Two contagious stayed
That left working sick and, of course, me
On the fifth day of Christmas
My son relayed to me
Five additions to Santa's list
Four reasons why
Three-wheelers are a bargain
Two wadded tissues
And a fever of 103
On the sixth day of Christmas
Reason gave way to insanity
Six hours in front of the TV
Five Ronco-like commercials
Four looked appealing
Three, even healing
Two Ped Eggs were ordered
And a slicer-dicer that came with a
guarantee
On the seventh day of Christmas
I gave in completely
Seven Go Dusters ordered sweetly
Six Zorbeez pondered
Five more dollars squandered
Four Flingshot Frogs added
Three pedicure slippers, fully padded
Two vacuum sealers
And an Aerogarden truthfully, just for me
On the eighth day of Christmas
Eight people queried .
Why I looked so wearied
Seven hours later
I bought an Autopilot Talking Road
Navigator
Six Giftwrap Cutters
Five Sole Detoxers

Four half-priced ties
Three were pretty good buys
Two candy dishes

Nine ladies dancing,
Eight maids a-milking
Seven swans a-swimming
Six geese a-laying
Five golden rings!
Four calling birds
Three French hens,

Six toys with bells and whistles
Fi'e had flying missiles : -
Four ways to wrangle

Three cups of tea
All with soothing properties
Two plans for next year
Both entirely Ronco free.

Editor,
The greatest gift you can give a loved a one is the
gift of sight! As one of 430 Eye Care American
Seniors EyeCare Program volunteer Ophthalmologist
here in Florida, I experience first hand how providing
a simple, medical eye exam can preserve sight. I urge
readers to call the EyeCare American Seniors EyeCare
Program, 1-800-222-EYES (3937), for free eye care
information or to see if you or someone you love may
qualify for medical eye care at no out-of-pocket cost.
There are more than 7,100 EyeCare America
volunteer ophthalmologist in the us dedicated to
serving their community. This year-round program is
designed for seniors, age 65 and older, who have not
seen an ophthalmologist (a medical eye doctor) in
three or more years. Eligible patients will be matched
with a nearby volunteer ophthalmologist. Seniors
receive a comprehensive medical eye examination and
up to one year of care for any disease diagnosed
during the initial visit at no out-of-pocket cost. As
program volunteers, we have agreed to waive
Medicare or other insurance co-payments and unmet
deductibles, resulting in no out-of-pocket cost to the
patient. Seniors without insurance receive care at no
charge. Here in Florida, 29,807 have been helped
through EyeCare America. EyeCare America is a
public service program of the Foundation of the
American Academy of Ophthalmology. The Seniors
EyeCare.Program is co-sponsored by the Knights
Temple Eye Foundation, Inc. I urge you to take
advantage of this valuable program-and give the gift
of sight this holiday season.
Sincerely, Abbas Abbey, MD

Editor,
"Why do bad times happen to good people" was the
age-ol question asked by Mr. Gu Race during his
Sunday School lesson every week. The same question
was asked by The Reverend Dr. James Atkins, pastor
at New Zion Missionary Baptist Church at Shanesia
Cox funeral on Dec.8th in Chattahoochee,Fl. Mr.
Race died at the ripe old age of 95 years of natural
causes. Shanesia Cox, on the other hand died
tragically at the hands of a DUI driver just months
into her 7th years on this earth. I'm under the
opinion that it s not how long you're on this earth
but what you contribute while here, I'm hereby
appealing to the readers of this article to participate in
a campaign to prevent a tragedy of this kind from
happening again during this holiday season and
throughout the upcoming 2008 year. Be an active
participant and promoter in the designated driver
program and ask for help from the various
organizations offering free rides home and free towing
ofvehicles if necessary. Let's make this a safe and
joyous season. At "Shan's" funeral I learned that she

The injustice

of "doing

something"

about


subprime

By Alex Epstein

As we witness large numbers of
defaults on subprime loans--loans
extended to those with no credit or
bad credit--many are calling for the
government to do something to
stop the suffering. At the same
time, many recognize that a bailout
of struggling homeowners would
be wrong. Thus, we see a growing
list of proposed solutions that
purport to save the day without a
bailout: "borrower assistance"
programs to refinance defaulting
mortgages, crackdowns on
"predatory lending" practices, or
laws restricting mortgages the
government deems too risky.
In fact, regardless of how these
proposals are described, all embody
the essence of a bailout: they
absolve individuals of
responsibility for their bad
decisions--and force those who did
nothing wrong to pay the price.
While we may empathize with
those suffering the pain of *
foreclosure or bankruptcy, we must
recognize that any struggling
borrower or lender who signed a
clear, non-fraudulent contract, is
responsible for making sure it is
paid off. Incases where fraud was_
comnitte,the icumns can anid
should take legal action under
existing laws--but there is no
evidence that such cases are
epidemic. Most of the defaults are
due to the simple fact that many
lenders and borrowers made risky
loans. Some were betting on a
never-ending real-estate boom.
Some, observing the Fed's longtime
manipulation of interest rates to
keep them artificially low, expected
that their adjustable rate mortgages
would stay low forever. Others did
not.carefully assess the contracts
they signed--while certain lenders
gave money vuithout carefully
analyzing the borrower's finances.
Still others were encouraged to buy
homes, even when it didn't make
financial sense, by a government
that believes home ownership is
essential to the American Dream.
Given this range of factors, many
people and institutions besides
struggling borrowers and lenders--
most notably, the federal
government--bear responsibility for
the mess. But the ultimate
responsibility lies with the
borrowers and lenders themselves.
Any problems they have are their
responsibility to remedy--just as
any gains borrowers and lenders
have made on risky subprime
mortgages are theirs to keep. In the
case of a mortgage borrower,
taking responsibility might mean
trying to find a lender who will pay
off and renegotiate the old
mortgage into a more manageable
one. If such attempts fail, however,
a person must accept the
unfortunate consequences--for
example, the borrower who loses
his house and must live more
modestly, or the lender who must
take a large loss from a loan
default. The only alternative is to
make others pay for the
consequences of his actions--which
is exactly what all government
attempts to "do something"
necessarily do.
The government is not a savvy
lender or mortgage expert able to
contribute innovative financing
strategies or new knowledge to the
mortgage market. Its sole power,
which ail forms of "doing
something" utilize, is the power to
forcibly compel some people to
give up their money or freedom for

Midway couple sentenced for beating


Quincy man injured in wreck


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

A Midway couple,
Christopher Coaxum and
Syteria Booker, pleaded guilty
last week in a Gadsden County
court to battery with great bodi-
ly harm in the beating a
Tallahassee woman at their
Midway home in February.
Coaxum and Booker were sen-
tenced to six months in the


county jail, five years probation,
and must pay $2,300 in restitu-
tion.
The pair was arrested after
the victim told authorities she
was beaten, bound, and gagged
after they picked her up at home
about 3 a.m. on Monday. The
woman said she was able to
eacape about 10 a.m. and caught
a ride to Tallahassee Memorial
Hospital, where she was inter-
viewed by deputies.


Because the women left her
home with the couple willingly,
kidnapping charges, which were
part of the first charges, were
dropped.
While searching the couple's
Pondersoa Circle home howev-
er, deputies also found a video
showing Coaxum sexually and
verbally abusing another
woman. That woman has since
left the state and is not cooperat-
ing with authorities.

By LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor

School authorities suspend-
ed a 15-year-old West
Gadsden High School student
Dec. 4 after a teacher saw him
take a BB gun out of his back-
pack.
According to Principal Joe


I _-


Lewis, the youth was in class
when a teacher saw him
remove what appeared to be a
gun from his backpack and put
it into his pocket. The teacher
notified the principal, who
went to the classroom with the
school resource officer.
"It was a toy BB gun. The
classroom teaching saw him


take it out of his bookbag and
put it in his pocket," Lewis
said. "He was suspended as if
it were a real weapon."
The youth was to be sus-
pended for five days pending a
hearing on the matter. He did
not threaten other students or
school staff with the gun,
according to Lewis.

Chattahoochee man killed in industrial accident


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

A 36-year-old
Chattahoochee man, Jimmie L.
Jackson, was accidentally
killed while at work last


Wednesday afternoon at the
Supervalu warehouse on
Gadsden Street in Quincy.
According to information
released by the Quincy Police
Department, around 5 p.m.
Jackson was operating a forklift


unloading boxes of canned
goods from a tractor trailer
backed up to the loading dock.
"The trailer door was a roll
up door that that is positioned
at the top of the trailer when
rolled completely up. Jackson


apparently stacked too many
boxes on the forklift and when
he was driving out of the trailer,
the boxes struck the trailer door
positioned in the ceiling and
forced the door downward
causing the heavy steel door to


strike Jackson on the back of
his head knocking him off the
forklift," the report stated.
It is typical for the driver to
stand while operating the type.
of forklift that Jackson was
using. Jackson was not a hard


hat at the time of the incident.
Investigators called Jackson's s
death "an unfortunate acciden-
tal death."
There was no reason to sus-
pect foul play and the case was
closed.

American Profile to feature hometown life, Relish, its flavor


When American Profile has its
Jan. 10 debut as an insert in The
Gadsden County Times, much of
the four-color national magazine's
content will look familiar to area
readers because of the publica-
tion's strong editorial focus on
hometown life.
From regionalized calendars of
events to profiles of Hometown
Heroes, American Profile's edito-
rial content will celebrate the peo-
ple, places and things that make
America great. A profile of one of
America's great hometowns -
maybe one in this area, or one just
up the road will also be an edi-
torial feature of each issue.
"The regionalized component.
of this publication is very exciting
to us," said Gadsden County.
Times General Manager Eddie


Ledbetter, "because it will be a
great addition to the local news
and features we already provide
our readers. With American
Profile there is a strong likelihood
that readers may have a personal
knowledge of the people and
places profiled in the magazine."
American Profile completes
the coverage picture by also
including stories on health trends,
entertainment, current issues and
celebrities with hometown ties.
"Daily newspapers in large
markets are well-served with the
existing Sunday magazines, but
there are many wonderful stories
to be told in markets with weekly
and small market dailies.
American Profile was created, in
part, to tell those stories," said
Dick Porter, American Profile


president and CEO.
Beginning Jan. 10, American
Profile will be a regular weekly
insert in The Gadsden County
Times on Thursdays.
Also beginning in January,
look for Relish in The Gadsden
County Times the first Thursday
of each month. A monthly news-
paper-distributed magazine that
celebrates America's love of food,
Relish brings readers authentic,
accurate features on cooking, din-
ing and entertaining.
"Relish is the result of an
already overwhelmingly popular
feature found in our original mag-
azine, American Profile. The
Hometown Recipe section of that
magazine has been so hugely pop-
ular that we decided to create an
entire magazine dedicated to


America's love of food," said
Porter.
"We believe a magazine devot-
ed entirely to food and cooking
with an approachable and inviting
format will connect with
America's renewed interest in
family meal time and get-togeth-
ers."
Beginning Jan. 3, Relish will
be a regular monthly insert in The
Gadsden County Times.
Each month, Relish will fea-
ture:
This & That-Short descrip-
tions or announcements of a new
book, a new food, a good website
or a cool kitchen gadget or tool,
plus kitchen tips and nutrition
nuggets.
Tastes of America-Food
festivals across the nation, in both


small, off-the-beaten track locales
and big-cities, and a recipe from
the featured festival.
Good Health-From antioxi-
dants to good fats to whole grains,
this column focuses on food that
tastes good and is good for you.
Road Trips-American
eateries and the food they serve,.
including a recipe from each
restaurant featured.
Good Food Fast-Simple,
quick and accessible describes the
recipes in this column designed to
solve the weeknight dinner dilem-
ma.
Recipes-Our readers sup-
ply the recipes featured in this col-
umn, which provides a forum for
hometown cooks across the
nation and sometimes even the
parties and get-togethers they


host.
Seasons-Focuses on the
season, from the bounty of sum-
mer's farmers markets to fall
pumpkins to outdoor grilling to
cozying up with a bowl of soup.
Wine-Full of practical
advice and a good dose of humor,
this column will offer useful
information about wine and steer
readers through the maze of
choices available.
Holidays-New and tradi-
tional foods for the holidays, from
Valentines Day to Easter and
Passover, from Halloween to
Thanksgiving and Christmas.
Who You Know-Celebrates
the folks who are making a differ-
ence in the way Americans eat,
from cooks and cookbook authors
to chefs and nutrition advocates.


Midway pleased with choice for manager, but not with salary


By LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor

Several Midway City


Council members had high
praise for newly-appointed City
Manager Angela Poole
Thursday night.


But when it came time to
discuss the terms of Poole's
contract Thursday during the
regular City Council meeting,


the motion to approve her
request for a salary of $72,000
annually failed in a tie vote.
"I'm in agreeance with
everything except the pay ...
the reason is, $72,000 is the
max we had budgeted for this
position," City Councilman
Jerrod Holton told Poole. "I
believe in you I know that
you can do the job, but with
budget cuts and everything ...
this would just be your first
time being city manager.

Piller got $62,400, $30 an

hour."
Council members voted
Nov. 29 to name Poole city
manager. She had been acting
as interim city manager since
June.
Councilwoman Quintealia
Cato agreed with Holton, but
Mayor Pro Tem Ella Barber
.said she was for granting
Poole's request.
"There would be no compar-
ison between this manager and
the man we had before," Barber
said.
Poole, who has served as the
city's finance director since
2002, said she asked for
$72,000 annually without bene-
fits. Poole told city council
members they would end up
paying her more than that if
they voted on a $30 an hour
salary because she would then
request a benefits package.
She also said Piller frequent-
ly worked more than 40 hours.
per week and billed according-
ly.
"Mr. Piller billed $6,000 a
month," she said. "I'm nego-
tiable ... this is a way to save
the city $20,000 for retirement,'
health insurance, a two-week
vacation ... I know very well
until (the finance director) posi-


tion is filled I'm going to be
wearing that hat. It's saving the
city easily. $50,000 (to agree to
her salary proposal)."
Councilman Chuck Willis
made .a motion .to accept
Poole's proposal, with Barber
giving the motion a second and
Councilman Charles Smith vot-
ing for it as well. Mayor
Delores Madison and Council
members Cato and Holton
opposed the motion, and it died.
In other matters Thursday,
Council members unanimously
approved a request by.Poole to
give the city's six employees a
$500 Christmas bonus.
Council members also:
Recognized Council mem-
bers James Hinson, Quintealia
Cato and Chuck Willis for com-
pleting the Florida Institute of

Approved a resolution call-
ing for Midway to become a
"green local government" by
taking voluntary steps to
improve and advancing envi-
ronmental quality and energy
conservation.
Approved a request to pay
two engineering firms working
on city projects.

captured the Heisman omei Arkansas'
Darren McFadden. Accounting for over


50 touchdowns during the year, Tebow
became the Univeisitr of Florida's third


recipient of the honor.
A quai te back Like the


pre lous two


ISteve Spurrier and Danny Wuerffel),
Tebow is the fust sophomore to ever
in the award.
He is also the seventh player repre-
senting a state school to be crowned a
Heisman winner.
The other four, besides the Gators
representatives, were quarterbacks.
Charlie Ward and Chris Weinke at FSU
and Vinny Testaverde and Gino Torreta
at Miamu.
Tebow has a chance at winning it
two more years. I would ahlost wager
that he'll be a Gator for those next two
years.
Right now, I don't think leaving early
for the pios is an option for Tebow.
He seems to be enjoying the college
game too much.

FSU TIES LIP FISHER
FSU did one of the wisest things
they could ha\e done when they named


Jimbo Fisher to succeed Bobby Bow den
when the legendary coach decides to
hang it up.
The moves locks Fisher into FSU
and gives the program continuity that it
may not have achieved if FSU waited
until Bowden retired to find a successor.
Fisher was on a lot of lists looking
for head coaches. This takes him off that
list.
FSU really needs to have a good
recruiting year. From commitments so
far this looks like it could be a banner
year. The Fisher move can only help.

The Gadsden County Times December 13, 2007 9


Teen Tribunal hears three cases


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
Three teenagers walked into
the Guy Race Courthouse Annex
Tuesday afternoon with their par-
ents. They are special in that they
are first time teen offenders to par-
ticipate in a program who will
have a tribunal of their peers
decide their fate.
The Gadsden County Teen
Tribunal is a voluntary prevention
and diversion program for juve-
niles who have committed misde-
meanor offenses. The teen tribunal
provides a forum for defendants to
explain their involvement in the
offense, presents a structured envi-
ronment in which the words and
actions of the defendants are eval-
uated and judged by a tribunal of
their peers, and offers the opportu-
nity for defendants to accept
responsibility for their actions by
fulfilling the tribunal's sentence of
community service hours, future
tribunal duties, counseling and jail
tour All are designed to be con-
structive and rehabilitative for the
youths.
First up, was an 18-year-old


charged with driving without a
valid driver license. The young
woman said that her mother was
very ill and needed medication.
She knew she was wrong but
decided to take her mother's car
and drive to a local store to buy the
medicine.
The teenager said she she knew
she made a bad decision and had
learned from the incident. Her
mother agreed that he daughter
has learned from the experience.
She was sentenced to 10 days
community service, one day of tri-
bunal duty, take a tour of the jail,
write a 250 word essay, and pick.
up a book from the Florida
Highway Patrol office to get a vaid
driver license.
"The teen attorneys really
asked some thoughful questions.
Everything really fell into place,"
said tribunal coordinator Tiffany
Parsons-Braswell. She called the
first event "very positive.".
Sheriff Morris Young said he
too felt good about the first tribu-
nal. Acting as judge he said the
students had an excellent grasp on
their responsibilities and that they
were serious.


Another teenager, 16, was
accused of residential burglary and
petit theft. It all began when she
went out with friends and one
decided to break into his parents
home, while they. were out of
town, to drink some beers.
Testifying before the tirbunal, the
girl's father said he believed his
daughter was at the wrong place at
the wrong time and may not have
known that there was a burglary.
His daughter, he said is responsi-
ble and respectable and that she
has never been in trouble before.
The eleventh grader was sen-
tenced to 45 hours of community
service, five days of tribunal duty,
a tour of the jail, 500 word essay,
and a written apology to her par-
ents.
The most severe crime was that
of a typical teenager who is an ath-
lete at a local high school. In
October he and some friends went
out to get snacks and decided it
would be "cool" to take a few stop
signs. While they were having fun
a citizen who belonged to a neigh-
borhood crime watch program
saw them and called the Gadsden
County Sheriffs Office. Before


they could leave the area a deputy
had pulled them over and asked
about the signs. The teens said the
signs were in the trunk of the car.
He was charged with grand
theft and as a first time offender
was a candidate for the tribunal.
Even before the tribunal, his moth-
er placed him on restrictions and
he was not allowed to leave home,
except for school, for two weeks.
His peers decided he needed to
do more than home confinement by
his mother. He was sentenced to
serve 65 community service
hours, seven tribunal duty days,
stick to a curfew set by his parents,
write a letter of apology to his par-
ents, tour the jail, write a 500 word
essay, and view a video at the
Gadsden County Sheriffs Office
entitled "Doing Hard Time."
Parsons-Braswell said all of the
teens must complete their sanc-
tions within six months. She said
she will then file a petition with
the State Attorney's Office:
requesting that the charges be dis-
missed. The teen will no longer,
have a criminal record.
"It will be as if it never hap-:
pened," Parsons-Braswell said.

opened in October, located on the
comer of South Madison and East

Commissioner Andy Gay
retrieved minutes from the 2003
meetings where the commissioners
voted 4-1 to have Jack McLean,
city attorney, draw up an ordinance.


But Mclean never drafted the
ordinance.
Pastor Timothy Miller, the church
"planter" said that city officials
connected utilities and issued a
certificate of occupancy in the
church's name.

through the cracks, the intent was

downtown). They have gotten
caught up but we need to stick to
our guns on this one," said
Commissioner Derrick Elias.
The original moratorium was for
90 days and once that date had
passed and because there was no
further action, it was in what
McLean called "limbo." Director of
Customer Service Ann Sherman
said she allowed the church utility
connections because there was
nothing to the contrary in city laws.
At the time of the ordinance,
churches that already occupied
storefronts were grandfathered in
but it was made clear that once a
church closed its doors no other
churches could occupy that space.
At one point in 2003 there were six
storefront churches in the
downtown area. Church memebrs


were told that the issue will be
revisited in two weeks and that,
depending on the vote, they may
have to find another site.
In other matters, commissioners:
*Released the County from its
interlocal agreement to provide
curbside recycling pickup for the
105 Quincy residential customers.
WastePro will begin curbside
recycle collection beginning Jan. 2,
2008 for $5.50 per household.
*Tabled an agreement with River
Oak Plantation developers until
more information is available on the
city's role in utility infracture.
*Directed the city manager and

10 The Gadsden County Times December 13,2007


Midway looks at comp plan changes


By LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor

Midway City Council mem-
bers approved on first reading
Thursday night a host of proposed
changes to the city's comprehen-
sive plan.
The changes fall under three
categories: Future land use map
amendments, amendments
requested by the Department of
Community Affairs and amend-
ments to bring the city into compli-
ance with Senate Bill 360.
The bill, passed in 2005,
revised concurrency requirements
for roads, schools, and water. It
also set forth regulatory incentives
for developing a community
vision and establishing an urban
service boundary.
The bill also established the
Century Commission for a
Sustainable Florida and provided
$1.5 billion in recurring and nonre-
curring funding for infrastructure
in the 2005-06 fiscal year and
$750 million in recurring funding
in subsequent years.
The bill contains a capital
improvement element that requires
local governments to annually
update their schedule of capital
improvements and to transmit
amendments to implement the
bill's provisions by Dec. 1 of this
year.
Harrison Higgins of Florida
State University's Department of
Urban and Regional Planning was
hired by the city to help with the
gargantuan task of updating its
comprehensive plan.
"Under Senate Bill 360, you
have to be able to show each
development is concurrent and
have a concurrency certificate," he
told Council members during
Thursday night's regular Council
meeting. "You need to start charg-
ing everybody who comes in here
the right fee for the review and the
document."
Changes proposed by Higgins


and others in his department
include the adoption of an impact
fee ordinance that assesses new
developments on equitable pro rata
share of the costs to provide road
improvements to serve the devel-
opment.
Higgins also recommended the
city require new developments to
connect to central water if service
is available and require developers
to pay all costs of sewer line exten-
sions, any necessary lift stations
and on-site sewer infrastructure to
new developments.
While several Council mem-
bers have long decried the lack of
a school closer than Havana,
where Midway students currently
go, Higgins said the city will not
likely be able to win approval from
DCA for such a project until it
works in conjunction with the
county to develop a public schools
element.
.The 2005 legislation requires
each local government to adopt a
public school facilities element in
its comprehensive plan and to
adopt required updates to its public
schools
interlocal agreement by Dec. 1,
2008. A waiver is available to
counties and cities within those
counties that do not exceed certain
capacity rates.
Gadsden County meets all four
criteria for a waiver, according to
Higgins: No schools exceed 100
percent of the capacity threshold,
no schools have temporarily
exceeded capacity threshold, pro-
jected capital outlay full time
equivalent student growth rate is
less than 10 percent and there is
adequate data to support a waiver
request.
Because Gadsden County does
not have a public school facilities
element, DCA would not likely
approve a proposal from Midway
to adopt one, Higgins said.
"Gadsden County hasn't done a
public school element so DCA will
not approve Midway," he said. "If


the Gadsden County Commission
and the Gadsden County School
Board tell DCA they are eligible
for a waiver, then you would have
two years to come back to the table
with a proposal. Right now,
Gadsden County schools do not
have a capacity problem. Even in
the new high school, there are
empty student stations."
Higgins also discussed 27 pro-
posed and recent annexations that
will be transmitted to DCA as
future land use map amendments.
Includes in the proposal is a
request that a 59.70-acre tract cur-
rently designated as a conservation
land use be changed to mixed land
use; a 19.97-acre conservation use
tract be changed to residential use;
and a 77.44-acre tract currently
designated as agriculture be
changed to conservation use.
The 27 proposed land use
changes total 450 acres and an
additional 2,668,922 change in
square footage for non-residential
use.
DCA has already denied at least
one of the requests being submit-
ted for land use change; develop-
ers of Holly Branch subdivision
resubmitted their request to change
the land use of 162 acres from
agriculture to residential.
"DCA has denied this because
-you've already used up your small
land use changes," Higgins said.
"DCA is concerned that there be
some kind of centralized water,
and the governor is concerned
about the subdivision's proximity
to the Ochlockonee River and the
potential for runoff. There are a lot
of wetlands on that parcel of the
subdivision."
Growth Management Director
Roosevelt Morris told Council
members DCA indicated it would
approve Holly Branch "with the
condition there will be sewer
there."
The site would be served by
Talquin Electric Cooperative,
Morris said.

SUBPRIME from Page 4


homeowners new loans they
could not get on the free market--at
a cost to taxpayers of at least
$250,000 per homeowner--compels
those % ho did not make or take out
nsk-y loan. to bail out those who
did. The same is true of measures to
target "predatory lending"--an
undefined term that gives the
government license to extract huge
fines from any innocent lender it
retroactively deems should have
given better counsel to borrowers.
The government is also punishing
the innocent when it attempts to
"protect" future borrowers. For
example, proposed prohibitions on
future mortgages that the
government deems overly risky
punish individuals who manage risk
well, many of whom will not be
able to afford new homes without
these vehicles.
The proper response of the
government to subprime problems


is simple; commit to no new
interventions in the housing market,
and cease all existing intervention
designed to influence home ,
ownership--from programs like
Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae to
artificially low interest rates. Such a
move would send a message
befitting a free people: a message of
responsibility. Individuals would be
responsible for the loans they make

GMOA was formed in the 1980s
and, with 50 members, is
recognized as the prominent men's
organization in Gadsden County.
The Chamber was formed in 1946
and has over 300 members. Both
organizations have a strong sense of
community and a shared vision of
improving the quality of life within
Gadsden County.
"This is an effort that we have
talked about for two years," said
David Gardener, the Chamber's
executive director. "And now it will
become reality with a clear vision
starting with youth programs."


"Folks need help and the GMOA
already supports the community. I
feel both of these great
organizations can make a
difference," explained Henry Gunn,
the president of GMOA. "I'm ready
to make it happen." The two groups
will fine tune their mission in the
coming months and have a proven
track record of impacting lives in a
positive manner. Businesses and
individuals interested in
participating in these organizations
should contact the Chamber's vice
president of membership, Michelle
Burdick, at (850) 627-9231 or Don
Gibson, GMOA's vice president, at

Wearing a red blouse and her

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

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

tion to international education, and
then to experience a new culture
and share their knowledge, curios-
ity and enthusiasm with people in
developing countries," said
Pamela "Sissi" Carroll, chair-
woman of FSU's Department of
Middle and Secondary Education,
one of the two academic units col-
laborating on the project.
Students will be assigned to
English, mathematics or science-
education teaching positions in
one of the 70 countries of Asia,
Africa, Eastern Europe and Latin
America where the Peace Corps
presently operates, Carroll said.
The goals of this innovative pro-
gram are to:
provide students with the
knowledge and associated skills to
effectively teach and/or train
teachers at the secondary level in
the United States or abroad;
equip students with in-depth
knowledge of the profound ways


in which cultural context affects
teaching and learning, as well as
new methods for understanding
environments radically different
from their own;
offer students an academic
environment that ultimately will
increase their effectiveness as
cross-cultural ambassadors;
enhance cross-cultural learn-
ing and international understand-
ing at FSU while supporting better
understanding of American cul-
ture by counterparts in host
nations; and
enable participants to move
on to valuable jobs in both the
U.S. educational system and over-
seas and/or continue graduate
study in specialty areas that will
increase the ability to contribute to
international harmony and devel-
opment.
The initiative is a joint effort
between two branches of the FSU
College of Education: the
Programs in Science Education,
English Education and'
Mathematics Education of the
Department of Middle and
Secondary Education, and the
Program in Sociocultural and
International Development
Education Studies (SIDES) within
the Department of Educational
Leadership and Policy Studies.
SIDES offers master's and doctor-
al degrees in international devel-
opment and education.
Students will spend a full aca-
demic year at FSU taldng core
courses in teaching methods and
international education before
their required two-year service in
the Peace Corps. Upon returning,
they will complete their program


of study and serve as mentors to
incoming students in the program.
"The students will come back to
campus to finish their degrees,
filled with a world of new
insights," Carroll said. "They will
enrich classroom discussions, cre-
ating a continuing and incredibly
positive, productive cycle of edu-
cation and growth. And they will
be well positioned for critically
important careers."
Peace Corps Master's
International graduates will be
qualified for teaching and admin-
istrative positions in both U.S. and


international schools upon com-
pletion of their studies and will
have the global perspective
required to make a mark, Carroll
added.
The Peace Corps was formed' in
1961 to promote world peace and
friendship. Its goals are to help the
people of interested countries in
meeting the need for trained men
and women, help promote a better
understanding of Americans on
the part of the peoples served, and
help promote a better understand-
ing of other peoples on the part of
Americans.

verse of the week:
And they say unto him, we have here but tfi e loa\ es, and two fishes, Matthew 14:7(KJV)

Jesus' disciples had come to
him after listening to him
Teaching the multitude and told
him how they were hungry.
Jesus had the disciples search the
multitude for food.
S jThey searched the people that
day and found a small boy who
had two fish and five loaves of
P bread in a lunch bag. The
disciples brought it to Jesus and
he began to multiply the food to
; feed the multitude.. Just as that
J "Jl) little boy that day we need to
bring what we have to God and
watch what he will do for us.

Family Ttme This Weele:
Spend time this week to read the story of Jesus feeding the multitude as a Fraitly.

SWith the cold winter months well under way, it is safe to say that many people
V are busy enjoying the activities that come with the cold weather. Winter sports are
Very popular, especially in colder regions of the world. Some of the most popular
ones-ice hockey, ice skating and curling-are performed on ice.
One of the most popular winter sports today is ice hockey. Ice hockey is a game played on an ice
rink. There are two teams with six players each who wear ice skates. The goal of each leam is to get
a hockey puck into the opposing team's goal, using hocke! sticks to direct and drve the puck. Hockey
players wear helmets and protective gear to keep them safe from the ice, other players, ice skate
blades, and flying pucks. Today there is a professional hockey league in North America known as the
National Hockey League (or NHL) which was formed in 1926. The sport is also played among universi-
ties and other organizations aimed at younger players Ice hockey is the most popular sport in Canada.
It is as popular there as football is in the United States.
Ice skating is another winter sport that is performed on ice. Before ice skating became a sport, it was
a means of transportation. In the 12th and 13th Centuries, the Dutch and other Europeans skated
across frozen lakes and canals to get from town to town. The popularty spread and eventually became
a winter recreational activity. Recreational ice skating is enjoyed by many people. Professional ice
skaters practice for many hours to perfect special moves, jumps, and twists in the air. Pairs figure
skating is one of the most popular spectator sports during the Winter Olympics. Couples skate on the
ice together and perform routines that are choreographed to music. The difficulty of this sport is often
overlooked.
In the United States, probably the most unrecognized ice sport is curling. Curing began hundreds of
years ago in Scotland on frozen lakes. In curling, two teams of four curlers compete against each
other. The goal of the game is to get the curling stone, or rock, to the end of a lane of ice closest to the
target center. It is similar to bowling in this respect. One player slides the stone, which looks like a rock
with a handle, down the lane toward the target. Three other players use brooms, or brushes, to brush
the ice while the stone is going down the lane. The way in which they brush the ice affects the direction
the stone goes and how far it goes. This is done ten times by each team. The one with the most points
at the end wins. ,.rs ,

HMS student leads Pearl Harbor discussion


Once again Havana Middle
School allows it patriotic stars
and stripes to show. HMS
remembered to honor Pearl
Harbor Day on Dec. 7. The
lesson plans were compliments
of the Ladies Auxialiry Post
12054. The lessons were taught
by Mrs. J. Bradwell and Mrs. R.
Gaines. The students were
attentive and interested in the
history lesson. One student was


especially excited
participatory, he said,
my birthday and I know
Pearl Harbor." This
instructor all excited


and
'today is
all about
got the
and she


relinquished the' floor to the
student. He knew about this day
in history.
Ms. Bradwell relinquished the
floor to Martel Wheeler, a
seventh grade student at HMS.
.He started by saying," I was born


on December 7th and I am a part
of a military family that was
stationed in Hawaii for one
year."
The teacher thought Wooo how
exciting. Martel began to just
regurgitate the Pear Harbor story.
He said the Pearl Harbor story
was a part of the curriculum in
Hawaii. The photo shows our
birthday fellow sitting along with
some of his seventh grade pals.

with both groups wanting to bring
home a win. They all did extreme-
ly well, but in the end George W.

Old


Year


On the night of June 5-6,1944 thousands of sol-
diers from Britain, America,, Canada and other
nations climbed aboard troop transport ships
docked on the south coast of England. By day-
break, they had made the short trip across the
English Channel and were storming onto French
beaches with names like Juno, Sword, Utah,Gold,
and Omaha. This was D-Day, part of Operation
Overlord, which was the Allied plan to liberate
Europe and defeat Germany. Winston Churchill,
Joseph Stalin,and Franklin Roosevelt had set it in
motion when they met in Tehran between
November 28 and December 1,1943.
While the three world leaders decided the
invasion's timing only six months earlier, its roots
lay buried on the Gallipoli peninsula, a narrow
finger of land that guards the entrance to the-
Dardanelles, a strait leading from the


Mediterranean to Constantinople and the Black
Sea, Nearly forty years earlier, in April 1915, British,
Australian, New Zealand and French troops landed
on the beaches of Gallipoli. Their objective was to
capture the peninsula, and allow British warships
to pass through the Dardanelles and capture
Constantinople, the capital of the Ottoman Empire.
Six months before the invasion, in October
1914, the Ottomans entered World War I as a
German ally. This led the British First Lord of the
Admiralty to conclude that, by capturing
Constantinople; Allied soldiers could attack
Germany from the south and quickly end World
War I. A month before the invasion, in March 1915,
British warships attempted to penetrate the straits,
but shelling from Gallipoli drove them back. After
that episode, Ottoman leaders realized an invasion
was the next step, so they moved reinforcements
to the peninsula.
While some British generals opposed invad-
ing Gallipoli, the First Lord of the Admiralty con-
vinced his colleagues in the War Cabinet to pro-
ceed. It was a disaster. With the.Ottomans ready
and waiting, the attackers suffered massive casual-
ties during the landing. The troops couldn't break
through the defenses, so they were stuck on the
beaches. In the end, after ten months and nearly
44,000 casualties, the Allies abandoned Gallipoli.
In the aftermath. numerous mistakes came
to light. The Ottomans had been waiting for them
Planning for the invasion had been poor. There
had been too few slhipi too few rien, and too little
equipment The First Lord of the Admiralty, who
had championed the invasion, w;a unceremnoni
ously sacked, and lis puliti:al Lcareer lay in ruins.
His name was Winston Churchill and he vowed to
learn from the mistakes
Forty years later, the lessons Churchill
learned during the Gallipoli campaign were

'Against All Odds': A motivational


book signing at Havana Elementary


A few weeks ago a very spe-
cial event took place at HES.
Gadsden County's own local
author, Betty R. James: Author
of Against All Odds: Artist
Dean Mitchell's Story, visited
the school and signed copies of
her recently published book for
each of our fourth grade stu-
dents.
The book tells a story of how
a young man, also a Gadsden
County native from Quincy
Florida,was raised by his grand-
mother and achieved higher
heights. His grandmother
instilled in him a set of values
that motivated him to
Never settle for mediocracy.
This is a true story of Dean


Mitchell, famous water color
artist, a determined and dedicat-
ed young man who refused to
accept the limitations of others.
Dean Mitchell has won national
acclaim for his artistic creations.
Mrs. James, who is also an
employee of the Gadsden
County schools and works side
by side with her husband super-
intendent Reginal James, con-
veyed a very important message
to the students. She spoke to
them about the need to focus on
their education and how with
determination to succeed they
too could overcome any obsta-
cles. She engaged the students
in a very interactive and inform-
ative discussion. Students were


very inquisitive as to why she
chose to write the book. Mrs.
James hopes to motivate and
inspire the students of Gadsden
County to reach further than
they are expected to.
The HES family and espe-
cially the entire fourth grade
level wish to thank the Steven
Gasdenia Family for donating a
book to each of our fourth grade
students. We thank you for pro-
viding our students with a great
opportunity .to experience this
true story. We are sure the stu-
dents of HES will emulate the
hard work and determination
exhibited by Mr. Mitchell. They
too, can"reach their dreams
"Against All Odds".
