Voting day


Floridians preparing for January 29 primary


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
Presidential debates on television, calls
from pollsters wondering who you would
vote for if you had to do it today can only
mean one thing: the presidential primary for
Florida is just around the comer. But


Floridians have something else on the ballot
that is likely to make the turnout higher
than normal, the proposed property tax
exemptions; limitations of property tax
assessment.
January 29 is when Floridians get to go to

Little eyes light ti u '1ehe h talks 't16
the room. They know he's coming and
they get excited as children do when
someone, other than the teacher, is in the
classroom. That's what Theotis Moore, the
City of Quincy's Drug Abuse Resistance
Education (D.A.RE.) and Public
Relations officer will miss after his
retirement December 31.
SFor the past 17 years Moore has taught
mostly fifth and sixth graders in the
Gadsden County School District' the
pitfalls that accompany the use of drugs,
alcohol, and tobacco. Along the way, he
has also dispensed knowledge that they
can use in other aspects, of their young
lives. 1"
"They come up to me and say 'you don't ,OF ~ IN
remember me but you were my D.A.R.E.
teacher' and now they are teachers, in the
military and leading productive lives.
Some have moved away and have families
of their own," he said. At least two of his
former students chose to remain in
Gadsden County, one is a police officer
and the other is a firefighter with the City
of Quincy.
Moore, a product of Quincy, left to join
the Marines after he graduated from
Carter-Parramore High School in 1965.
After a four year stint in the Marine Corps
he took the test to become a police officer

'Qfone' debuts


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
S The City of Quincy launched its new digital
telephone service, Qfone, last week. One of the first
people to get the service was Mayor Keith Dowdell.
He was excited by the installation and happy with the
results.
"It works great," he said Friday night using the new
service.
Ray Eaton, the city's director of telecommunications,
said the citizens of Quincy are the big winners.
'The new Qfone digital phone service offers *a
significant cost savings, over other telephone
companies. The package is $39.99 per month. Some of
the free features include address book, anonymous call
rejection, call block, caller ID, call forwarding, call
return and call waiting as part of their package," Eaton
said.
Many citizens have already signed up for the service.
That's because, Eaton said, the city can offer real
customer support. He added that Netquincy, which is
the umbrella for Qfone, has customer 'service.
representatives who answer calls quickly with a live
voice.
"The Qfone bill will be accurate, easy to read, and
summarized by product and location. Customers are
also welcome to visit the Netquincy offices to address
their needs or pay bills online. Netquincy is here no
matter how our customers may need them," he said.
With the addition of Qfone, the City can now provide
complete digital services for telephone, internet,
cellular and limited Cable TV for both residential and
business customers.. Netquincy has installed a citywide

the polls if they want to wait
that long.
However, to make it more
convenient for voters, Gadsden
County's Supervisor of
Elections Shirley Green Knight
said early voting will begin
January 14 and end January 26.
Voters will soon receive
sample ballots in the mail to
help them make up their minds.
"Especially on the tax
exemption, I suggest they get in
groups and discuss it. They can
call my office to get the full text
if they need to," Knight said.
"Polls will be open Monday
through Saturday from 8:30
a.m. to 4:30 p.m. people can
vote at the Havana Public
Library, the Chattahoochee
Public Library, and at the
Supervisor of Elections Office,"
she said.
If a voter cannot get to their
polling place or vote early, they
may request that an absentee
ballot be mailed to them by
contacting the Supervisor of
Elections in person, by mail or
by telephone at 850-627-9910.
"They should bring a photo.ID
with a signature to the polls. If
they do not have ID, they will
be allowed to vote a provisional
ballot. The canvassing board
will determine the validity of
the ballot according to state
statute," Knight said.
Knight said Republicans,
Democrats and Independents
will be allowed to vote, but
Independents will only be
allowed to vote on the property
tax amendment.
The amendment, if passed,
will (1) increase 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 non-homestead
property, this revision (3)
provides a $25,000 exemption
for tangible personal property
and (4) limits assessment
increases for specific non-
homestead real property except
for school district taxes.
In more detail, the revision
will:
*Increase the homestead
exemption by exempting the
assessed value between $50,000
and $75,000.
*Provides for the transfer of
accumulated Save-Our-Homes
benefits. Homestead property
owners will be able to transfer
their Save-Our-Homes benefits
to a new homestead within one
year and not more than two
years after relinquishing their
previous homestead; except, if
this revision is approved by
voters on January 29 and if the
new homestead, is established
on January 1, 2008, the previous
homestead must have been
relinquished in 2007.
If he new homestead has a
higher value, he amount of
benefit will be reduced. The
transferred benefit cannot
exceed $500,000,. This
provision applies to all taxes.
*Authorizes an exemption
from property taxes of $25,000
of assessed value of tangible
personal property. This
provision applies to all taxes.
*Limits the. assessment
increased for specific non-
homestead 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, and may be
assessed at just value following
a change of ownership or
control if provided by general
law.. This applies to all district
taxes. This limitation is
repealed effective January 1,
2019 unless renewed by the
voters in the general election
held in 2018. '
*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.
*Provides for homestead
exemptions to be repealed if a
future constitutional amendment
provides for assessment for
homesteads "at less than just
value" rather than as currently
provided "at a specified
percentage" of just value.
*Schedules the changes to
take effect upon approval by the
electors and operate
retroactively to January 1, 2008,
if approved by voters.
Democrats will vote for one of
the following in the presidential
preference race: Joseph Biden,
Jr., Hillary Clinton, Christopher
Dodd, John Edwards, Mike
Gravel, Dennis Kucinich,
Barack Obama, and William
"Bill" Richardson III.
Republicans will vote on one
of the following in the
presidential preference race:
Rudy Giuliani, Mike Huckabee,
Duncan Hunter, Alan Keyes,
John McCain, Ron Paul, Mitt
Romney, and Fred Thompson.

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


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

By Alice DuPont, Editor



Contemplation. .


Who's up for a post-holiday

packing party?


Christmas and New Year's are gone.
Now comes the hard part. Putting all of
the stuff away. Some people I know,
namely my sister, starts to gather up the
stuff the day after Christmas. She puts it
in neat piles before'she begins the boxing
process.
First of all, I like to keep my
decorations in place until New Year's
Day.
To me, that's when the holidays are
officially over. At least, that's what I tell
myself, because to be honest, I'm just
prolonging the agony of sitting down and
putting decorations in their proper places
until next year.
One year, it was almost Valentine's Day
before I got the Christmas decorations
packed and put away. I promised myself
that I wouldn't ever do that again and I
haven't. Sunday would have been a good
day to get a jump start on putting away
things because of the rain and all.
But did I take advantage of that
opportunity? No, I went to pick up a
carry out dinner and popped myself back
into bed to settle in for a full afternoon of
football games. It was great. My favorite


kind of day. But Sunday night, as I
walked through the house, I felt terrible
that I had squandered a day that could
have been so productive. But then there
is a certain amount of productivity in
watching football games. I can hold a
semi-intelligent conversation about what
teams are where in the playoffs.
I know I'm not alone in this
procrastinating. I'll bet there are some
people who don't put away decorations
until Easter. A friend of mine said that-
his aunt and uncle keep their decorations
up year round. Every November his
uncle, he said, climbs up on a ladder and
checks to light to see if they still work. I
don't know if they keep the inside
decorations up year round or not, he
didn't say.
I'm thinking about having a packing
party. My thought is that it would be
similar to a painting party. Invite a few
friends over, feed them pizza or
something like that, and we'll all just
have fun while we pack my stuff away.
That's a good idea. Look for the
invitation in the mail in a few days,
friends.

January 1 is just the start

of the celebrations


If you headed to bed long before
midnight New Year's Eve, fear not:
January is a month full of holidays
waiting to be celebrated.
Those who did greet the New Year will
be happy to hear Jan. 3 is Festival of
Sleep Day.
Personally, I think we should have a
weekly Festival of Sleep Day. Who do I
talk to about that?
Not surprisingly, Jan. 3 is also
Fruitcake Toss Day.
If you know the meaning of the
Chinese phrase, "gong hay fot choy,"
(Wishing you a prosperous new year) or
the name of the newspaper the
Flintstones read (The Daily Slate) you'll
enjoy Jan. 4, which someone,
somewhere has designated as National
Trivia Day.
After the fourth, holidays take on a
definite feminine flair: Jan. 6 is Cuddle
Up Day. Jan. 7 is Old Rock Day. You
define "old rock" your way a fossil, a
geode and we'll define it ours a
diamond, a sapphire. Jan. 8 is both
Bubble Bath Day and Male Watcher's
Day. See what I mean?
Peculiar People Day is Jan. 10 and Jan.
12, National Pharmacist Day. Jan. 13 is
International not national, mind you,
but INTERNATIONAL Skeptic Day.


Serious. I'm not kidding about this.
Jan. 13 is Make Your Dream Come
True Day, which might be handier if it
came with a set of instructions, and Jan.
14 is Dress Up Your Pet Day, which
some people do on a regular basis
anyway but, OK, after the Halloween
and Christmas pet costume contests
don't forget Dress Up Your Pet Day is
Jan. 14.
Jan. 17 is Ditch New Year's
Resolutions Day, but by that time you'll
be too hungry/organized/healthy to care,
and Jan. 18 is National Thesaurus Day.
Well, except for me, to whom every day
is National Thesaurus Day.
It's also Winnie the Pooh Day, as it is
A.A. Milne's birthday.
There is an honest-to-goodness holiday
in January the observance of Martin
Luther King Jr.' birthday, on Jan. 21.
The rest of the month is filled with
improbable observances: Measure Your
Feet Day Jan. 23, Fun at Work Day Jan.
28, which is, as I'm sure you know, also
National Kazoo Day .
Jan. 30 is National Inane Answering
Message Day and Jan. 31, National
Backward Day.
There's a lot I could say about that but
instead, I'll just leave it with have a great
2008.

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

Hip Hop Fish and Chicken
is coming to QuiAcy.
Founded by three brothers
from, Chicago, Hip Hop Fish
and Chicken features a unique
variety of fish and chicken
dishes along with a funky
atmosphere and late-night
hours.
Danny Qasem, 48, bought
the Hip Hop Fish and Chicken
on West Tennessee Street in
Tallahassee, and plans to open
another in Quincy on E.
Jefferson Street just west of the
Shell station. The opening date
is tentatively scheduled for
Feb. 1.
While the restaurant's fare
is often described as Chicago
cuisine mainly by its
founders Qasem says most
menu items 'originated in
Britain and Ireland.
"It's fish and chips," he said
in an interview Monday. ."We
cook as ordered. You order, we
cook for you. Everything is'hot
and fresh."
Meals offered at Hip Hop
include fish dinners, chicken
dinners and combo meals all
cooked to the customer's spec-
ification. The chain offers
chicken livers and gizzards as
well as chicken wings tenders,
pieces and nuggets. Fish din-
ners come with a choice of
ocean perch, tilapia, catfish,
.*.. UL. e. 'Wh; i. W tefi'3itj;ggi l..ak
salhion, catfish tail and trout.
Other seafood choices include
shrimp and oysters.
Dinners include fries,
coleslaw and bread. Desserts
available are cake, peach cob-
bler, banana pudding and
cheesecake.
Qasem said he's owned gas
stations for years and became
interested in the Hip Hop
restaurant chain through his
nephew, hip hop artist DJ
Khaled.
The Miami-based Khaled


released his first album,
"Listennn..." in 2006 and a
second album, "We the Best,"
in June.
When he made a surprise
visit to the Tallahassee Hip
Hop Fish and Chicken
Restaurant, a crowd of more
than 3,500 gathered in the
parking lot, Qasem said.
"Hip hop musicians like this
idea, so they come to the
restaurants," Qasem said. "DJ
iahled will be coming back to'
the Tallahassee location, and of
course we'll bring him to the
Quincy location as well."
Qasem plans to repave the
entire parking lot at the site of

while both male & female
Reindeer grow antlers in the
summer each year, male
Reindeer drop their antlers at the

Female Reindeer retain their
antlers till after they give birth
in the Spring. Therefore,
according to every, historical
rendition depicting Santa's
Reindeer, every single one of
them, from Rudolph to Blitzen,
had to be a girl!
We should have known, only

Hydrilla Gnats take second

at Bass Club world qualifier


By MIKE PRINDLE


With a second place finish at the Bass Club World Championship
st? qualifying event held on Lake Russell December 15th and 16th,
Team Captain Chris Neely and his band of misfit Hydrilla Gnats are
proving to be a force to reckon with.
Jack "The BASS Club World Championships are the kind of event
that the Hydrilla Gnats were made for," said Chris. "We were found-
ed on teamwork and fellowship."
Joining Chris Neely are the 2007 Angler of the Year Andy
Koundourakis, the 2006 Angler of the Year Mike Prindle, the 2006
Classic Champion and 2007 Angler of the Year runner-up Paul Tyre,
Hydrilla Gnats member Sean Neel, and Hydrilla Gnats member
Mike Sloan.
The team employed several techniques to catch their fish during
the event at Lake Russell. The most productive was a Carolina Rig
fished slowly along main lake rock points in 10 to 25 feet of water.

verse of the weel:
Now Naaman, captain of the host of the king of Syria, was a great man with his master,
and honourable, because by him the Lord had given deliverance unto Syria: he was also a
mighty man in valor, but he was a leper. 2 Kings 5:1 (KJV)

Naaman being the captain of the
Syrian army was very important and
came down with leprosy. A young
maid servant came to him and told
him of a man of God, named Elisha.
Naaman wentsnd spoke to Elisha
the prophet and became very mad at
him because of Wiat he was told to
do. Elisha told hin to wash himself
in the Jordan River seven times.
The Jordan River was a very dirty
river and so he got upset at the
thought of washing in the dirty
water.
Naaman finally was-convinced to
wash himself in the river.. When he
came up out of the water the seventh
time his skin was as soft and new as
a baby's.




FamilJy "'Me Thi.s W seeI:
Read the story of Naaman and how he was delivered from leprosy as a Fa wmlj.

Cleaning up for a new
year

Public Works employees
Richard Green, front, and
Marquis Hinson, back, had
their hand full New Yer's Eve
morning pruning and general-
ly sprucing up the annex
across the street from the main
building. Green said they were
told to trim up the Crape
Myrtle trees and decided to
really give them a clipping so
that they will be fuller when
tree blooms again.

all day.
We tuned in to The Lone Ranger.
And Bat Masterson. And Roy
Rogers. And we ate our Christmas
dinner watching a great old Robert
Mitchum movie where they had to
tie ropes to the wagons and lower
them down the mountains.
"Winchester 73" was the late
movie. I was a little disappointed;
Cathy went to bed before Jimmy
Stewart got his rifle back.
But I'm going to see that she
doesn't miss any of the good ones.
January is John Wayne month. And
they've got a couple of great Burt

Lancaster movies coming up. And
here's the best part, there is a tribute
to Audie Murphy in the works! And
we're not going to miss the special
on "Bartenders of the Old West".
And to think, I almost bought a
mail box!
"Cathy, here's the best thing about
the Western Channel.....it's a gift
that will keep on giving!"
I think she muttered something
but I had the volume turned up so
loud so I wouldn't miss anything
Gene whispered to Champion that I
couldn't quite make out what she

regime..
Since we did not demand any
fundamental change in Pakistan's
behavior as the price of our
alliance, we should not have
expected any.
Pakistan's "unstinting
cooperation" included help with
the token arrests of a handful of
terrorists--even as the country
became a haven for Islamists.
Since 2001, Islamists have
established a stronghold in the
"Pakistani-Afghan tribal
borderlands (where bin Laden may
be hiding). But our "ally" neither
eradicated them nor allowed U.S.
forces to do so. Instead in 2006
Musharraf reached a truce with
them: in return for the Islamists'
"promise" not to attack Pakistani
soldiers, not to establish their own
Taliban-like rule, and not to
support foreign jihadists--Pakistan
backed off and released 165
captured jihadists.
Far from protesting, President


Bush endorsed this appeasing deal,
saying: "When [Musharraf] looks
me in the eye and says" this deal
will stop "the Talibanization of the
people, and that there won't be a
Taliban and won't be al Qaeda, I
believe him."
We have gone on paying
.Pakistan for its "cooperation," to
the tune of $10 billion in aid. The
Islamists, who predictably reneged
on the truce, now have a new
staging area in Pakistan from
which to plot attacks on us
(perhaps, one day, with Pakistani
nukes).
Why did our leaders evade
Pakistan's true nature? Faced with.
the need to do something against
the totalitarian threat, it was far
easier to pretend that Musharraf
was a great ally who would help
rid us of our problems if we would
only uncritically embrace him. To
declare Musharraf's regime evil,
albeit the lesser of two evils, would
have required a deep moral


confidence in the righteousness of
our cause. The Bush
administration didn't display this
confidence in our own fight
against the Taliban, allowing the
enablers of bin Laden to flee rather
than ruthlessly destroying them.
Why would it display such
confidence in dealing with
Pakistan?
But no matter how much one
pretends that facts are not facts,
eventually they will rear their
heads.
This is why we are so unable to
deal with the threat of Pakistan.
Our blindness is self-induced.

for Washington, DC, Baltimore,
MD and Houston, TX. He took
the police job in the nation's
capital and stayed there for 15
years before returning to Quincy.
"I joined the force here when it
was the Department of Public
Safety. Ed Spooner was the
director and we were both police
officers and firefighters. When
the department divided, I chose
the police side. I'd had my share
of pulling fire hoses," Moore
said.
While he loved police work, he
found hismniche working with the
children and used his knowledge
to help mold their lives. For some
of the children, he found, he was
the only positive male role model
in their lives.
"In 1990, the City of Quincy
joined with the Gadsden County
School District in a collaborative
effort to rid the early use of
drugs, alcohol, and tobacco
amongst our children. The two


entities realized that early
education in the key to
eliminating the use of drugs,
alcohol, and tobacco by our
students. The D.A.R.E. Program
is one of the most successful
programs implemented in the
schools of Gadsden County with
over 3,000 students graduating.
For seventeen years, Officer
Moore has been, since its
inception, the most committed,
caring, and dedicated officer in
the D.A.R.E. program. He is a
man of integrity and character
and is well respected and loved
by our students. His efforts are to
be applauded in making the
D.A.R.E. program what it is
today in Gadsden County," stated
a press release from the school
district.
"We can say without
contradiction that hundreds of our
students today are leading lives
that and drug, alcohol, and
tobacco free. Not only has be


educated our students about the
dangers in he use of illicit and
illegal substances he has shown
them how to protect themselves
and their families and how (to)
become productive and law-
abiding citizens," the release
continued.
"We are definitely going to miss
Officer Moore. His job is one that
makes the job of the other
officers a little better. When kids
see him and learn that officers are
there to help, they tend to
cooperate with other officers
better," said Chief Gerald
McSwain.
Moore said he and his wife,
Catherine, will do some traveling.
She wants to go to Nova Scotia
and Hawaii and visiting their son,
Chris, in North Carolina are at the
top of their list.
"I'm going to buy a small tractor
and do some gardening, we both
like that, but I'm telling her to
keep our bags packed," he said.
