Foul play not

discovery of

remains

by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
The Gadsden County Sheriffs Office is still
trying to identify the skeletal remains of a
older man's body found in a home north of
Quincy Thursday afternoon.
"We don't suspect foul play but we haven't
been able to make a positive identification yet.
A deputy went to Key West to get a DNA
sample from his mother, that's what we're
working on," said Lt. Jim Corder of the
GCSO.
"From what we found during our
investigation was that he was an elderly
gentleman who lived by himself. It was very
difficult because he was from Washington
State and was a recluse. He had his wallet and

by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
A three-week investigation by -the
Gadsden County Sheriffs Office Vice
and Narcotics Unit has resulted in the
arrest of eight people, all charged with
drug violations. The arrests were the
wrap-up of "Operation Season


Greetings" during which 65
individuals were arrested several
weeks ago.
Lt. Jim Corder said that during these
operations a total of three search
warrants were served. In the most
recent arrests, warrants resulted in
recovering approximately 2.5 pounds
of marijuana, packaged for sale, as


well as crack and powder cocaine.
Also confiscated was three guns and
$2,500 in cash. Paraphernalia, such as
digital scales and an assortment of
baggies, consistent with street level
drug sales, were also confiscated.
Corder credits concerned citizens
who reported suspicious or drug
activity to the Sheriffs Office and

votes to

manager

by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
Quincy's City Commissioners
voted 4-1 Tuesday night, during
their regular meeting, to re-
appoint Bill Bogan as city
manager. Bogan has served in
that capacity since June 1, 2006.
Commissioner Derrick Elias casts
the vote not to re-appoint.
While Bogan got generally
good marks from the four
commossioners, he was asked to
meet several bench marks.
One, requested by
Commissioner Sherrie Taylor,
was that Bogan make every
attempt to find a finance' director.
The city has not had a finance
director since before Bogan
became city manager. She also
asked him to present strategies
for the success of Netquincy and
a vision of where he plans to take
the city and how to get there.
Short of that, Taylor said that
while she will not ask for his job,
but that she could not continue to
support him as manager.
"I want to go on record by
saying. in three months we need a
finance director," she said,
adding, "this is just me, I'm not

Health dept. to get dental clinic

New facility will accept Medicaid


,By LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor
For several years, parents who
needed a pediatric dentist who
accepted Medicaid had to travel
to Wakulla or Jackson counties to
have their children seen.
Friday, Gadsden County Health
Department officials and other
local dignitaries will hold a
ribbon-cutting ceremony for a
new dental clinic in Gadsden
County one with a physician
who accepts Medicaid.
It's a momentous occasion,
Health Department Administrator
Sylvia Byrd said.
"Everybody has a stake in this.
It's just a thing for which I was
here for when it happened," she


said. "We're just so excited-we
still have a lot of hoops to go
through but this is really, really
exciting."
The health department was
awarded a $105,000 grant in May
to put toward refurbishing the
clinic and another $200,000
through the Legislature to
provide dental services. The
clinic will be housed in the North
Florida Medical Center side of
the Health Department on
LaSalle Lafall Drive in Quincy.
The building is owned by the
county, which leases one side to
North Florida Medical Center, a
primary care facility.

the Gadsden County Board of County
Commissioners, the Gadsden County
Community Health Council, Inc., Health
Department employees and local
businessmen and women contributed to
rehabbing an area within the North
Florida Medical Center main office that
was once used as a dental clinic.
"Talk about a well-rounded group of
support," Byrd said.
The clinic will feature four operatories,
each with its own x-ray, and new wiring
for computers and telephones.
It has also been painted, and various
health department employees have
donated money for decorations so the
office is appealing to the children.
Byrd is in the process of interviewing
dentists. She hopes to be able to hire one
dentist and several staff workers soon
enough to have the clinic up and running
by February.
After so many years of fighting so hard
to establish a dental clinic in the county,
State Representative Curtis Richardson
said he is elated that a Gadsden County
dental clinic is coming to fruition.
"This' is "a' wonderful service for the
children of Gadsden County," he said.


Gadsden County Manager Marlon
Brown'said he sees the clinic as a crucial
need here.
"We have always heard that having a
dentist in Gadsden County who accepts
Medicaid has been a huge obstacle,"
Brown said. "...This is huge. It used to be
that (former county commissioner)
Sterling Watson and other area dentists
would take time from their business and
visit schools, basically pro bono. Now we
can provide preventive, pediatric dental
care right here in Gadsden County. This is
another effort by the Health Council and
the County to continue to provide quality
care for citizens within Gadsden County."
Byrd said the clinic's success will be
determined in part by patients.
"It's going to be very important for
people to make appointments and keep
them," she said. "Just like private
physicians, we rely on Medicaid
reimbursements 'to operate. It is very
important to show up when you're
supposed to show up."

WORKFORCE plus


providing training


grants to businesses

WORKFORCE plus, the regional workforce development board
covering Gadsden, Leon and Wakulla counties is offering businesses in
the area an opportunity to compete for grants up to $10,000 each to
train their existing employees. To date, four awards have been
presented total more than $52,000 in money earmarked for staff
development and training.
The Customized Training Program is designed to give businesses the
opportunity to leverage the training cost of employed workers who are
need of additional skills in order to maintain or retain employment.
Deborah Hannah, Owner of Hannah Garage Doors in Crawfordville
stated the customized training grants now "assisting me with my
company to ensure that more people are properly trained and available
for the workforce."
The grant awards are an effort to keep businesses competitive and are
designed to meet changed skill requirements caused by new
technology, retooling, new product lines and organizational
restructuring.
Comfort Keepers President, Steve Watson stated: 'The employed
worker training grant program played a critical role in our efforts to
become a home health agency. We have been able to train our staff to
take on new and productive responsibilities which enhance their
careers as well as our organization's success. I would recommend the
grant program to any business needing assistance in training their
staff."
Research shows that employees value the opportunity to acquire new
skills which will lead to increased productivity and impact, a
company's bottom line. In today's economy, trained and effective
workers can mean the difference between a competitive business and
an extinct business.

employees specialized instruction directly from the manufacturer of
our equipment," say Larry Rishell, President of Print Operations. "This
training enables our employees to work more proficiently and provides

industry. This program benefits the company as well as the individual

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

By Alice DuPont, Editor



Contemplation ,




Love thy neighbor?


How much responsibility do we have to
each other as human beings? That's a
question I suppose people have been
asking themselves and each other for
years. "Am I my brother's keeper?"
Last week when the skeletal remains of a
man were found in his home, I thought it
was very sad. Then, I found out from the
investigator that the man had been dead
for the past four months. It wasn't as if he
didn't have neighbors. It wasn't as if no one
went to the house.
The mail had not been taken out of the
mailbox since September. The notice to
discontinue service had been hung on the
door for several months. People had passed
by day after day and only noticed that his
car had not been moved. That was until the
day the authorities came and there was a
lot of commotion around the place. Then
there was almost a traffic jam of people
looking and stopping to see what was
going on.
Apparently he kept to himself a lot, but I
think that if I didn't see a neighbor for four
months, I would start to ask a few


questions. No one was concerned enough
to at least check on the man who had a'
love for dogs. The only pictures of him
authorities were able to find in the house
were taken with his dogs. One of them
died in the house with him while two
others, and one in the yard, were so
emaciated they were near death.
All kinds of people have come forward to
care for the dogs. They want to take them
and nurse them back to health. It's a pity
no one checked on this man until four
months after his death.
In this age of "mind your own business"
and "I'm not going to get involved" a
medium has to be reached. I'm not saying
that we should visit someone weekly but if
you don't see a person for an extended
period of time, either check on them or call
someone to check on them.
I'll be the first to concede that some
people are hard to deal with and they may
even tell you to butt out, but at least they
won't be left in a house until they can no
longer be identified other than through
DNA samples.


It was so cold one January that Mr. Archie
Moore's pond froze. We stood there in
amazement as the cows came down to the bank
and couldn't "break through" to get a drink.
Ricky Gene threw a crabapple as hard as he
could against that solid sheet of ice and it didn't
even cause a dent. Cautiously we eased out on
it and checked for cracks. Arlo Cunningham,
who was a. little big for his age, jumped up and
down......the ice held!
We didn't know exactly what to do but this
was too good of an opportunity to pass up! It
didn't take Yogi's fertile mind long, "How
about a baseball game on ice?"
We sprinted back to the house, got our gloves
and a bat, called Miss Estine up at the Southern
Bell Company and asked her to ring Kenny,
Jim Bob, Buddy, B-Mack and Mary Hadley
and tell them to hi-tail it down to the pond.
There is nothing like a first time for
anything.....
It was another "great idea" that didn't exactly
work. Choosing up sides was no problem. And
we had played so much together everyone
instinctively moved to their positions. We
tossed down a couple of dirt clods for
bases......it looked like we were ready for the
day of our lives!
But those winter boots didn't "dig in" the ice
like our PF Flyers took to the grass on that field
beside Aunt Jesse's house. You figure in those
heavy jackets and long underwear and it made
it near bout impossible to swing a bat or get
down in front of a hard hit ball. You couldn't
keep your balance when you were pitching or
hitting. When someone did make contact the
ball skidded by the infielders way too fast to
make a play. B-Mack slid into second base and
ended up out behind Kenny in left field!
We took most of our clothes off. Sure, it was
plenty cold but somehow it wasn't so hard on
you back in those days. Besides, the sun was
out.
We slipped and slid for an hour or two trying
to make it work. An outfielder didn't have a
chance. He'd wipeout every time he started for
a deep fly. No traction! We laughed at the folly
of it more than we played baseball. Norman
Rockwell could have had a field day with the
overcoat, scarves, boots and toboggans
scattered indiscriminately across the ice as the
handful of yokels tried to make the game work.
The old barn and the startled cows as spectators
would have been right up his alley.
'Course, that thought never crossed our
minds. We just didn't want to waste the frozen
pond! None of us had ever seen a pair of ice
skates and hockey was only played by people
who were from Wisconsin or Canada.
"How about football?" We had plopped
down behind "home plate" not about to admit
the baseball game was a sham but looking for a
graceful way out.
"We don't have a ball and I ain't walking
back to the house again," It was cold enough to
see your breath as we discussed the
opportunities of the moment. "Do you think we
could get the pigs down here?"


There was a moment of silence. It was a
given that Arlo wasn't the smartest one in the
bunch. But what did he possibly think we
could do with a herd of pigs on ice?
"Do you reckon a tractor or a car would have
more traction?" Yogi moved the conversation
on.
"What do you mean?"
"I was just wondering which would win if we
raced'em across this ice."
"The car has more speed, it would win going
away!"
"I dunno, those big back tires on the tractor
would have way more grip, which would be
more important than speed!"
We debated this for a few minutes like it was
a matter of national importance.
"There's one way to find out."
The tractor was no problem. We had an old
Farmall up at the house. The only question was
would it crank in this cold weather? Mary
Hadley put her hand on my arm as we stood
up, "Kes, this is not a good idea. Please don't
do something stup--"
"We can get Lonnie Stoner's dad's old
Dodge." Ricky Gene didn't let her finish. And
it wouldn't have mattered anyway. I knew
these guys-the idea had passed the planning
stage. We had crossed the Rubicon. Plus, I was
pretty interested by now to see which one
would get across the ice first.
Wasn't any of us quite old enough to have a
driver's license. But back then if you just drove
around the house or across the fields, didn't no
one object. I choked that old tractor till it finally
turned over and I eased down the gravel road
toward the pond.
I got there about the same time Arlo drove up
in Mr. Stoner's pick-up truck. Lonnie wasn't
with them and I wondered how they got the
truck without him. Mary Hadley was the only
one who didn't look happy as we lined up on
the bank opposite the old barn. "First one to
pull out by the barn is the winner." B-Mack
was the official starter. "And don't hit any
cows!" He dropped his hand.
I was already in second gear for a quick take
off. I popped the clutch and roared out onto the
ice! Arlo slid the truck side ways almost
immediately. He was spinning every tire on
that old Dodge. I think I had him! I shoved the
gas arm out as far as it would go. I was two
lengths ahead and over half way to the barn
when the ice broke! The Farmall didn't go all
the way under at first. But you can't imagine
how cold that water was cascading over me as
the front end harpooned into the black abyss! I
was knocked over on the back fender and
somehow managed to leap off......
miraculously avoiding the still spinning Dodge
and the cows on my way down!
I learned some very important lessons that
day. One of which was that tractors weigh
more than teenagers. Sun melts ice. Mary
Hadley was smarter than she looked. And I
never listened to Yogi again.....
Respectfully,
Kes


Obama makes history in Iowa/New


Hampshire


By Chuck Hobbs

Words can hardly express the excitement that I felt as
CNN's Wolf Blitzer announced that Barack Obama was
the Democratic victor in the 2008 Iowa Caucuses. After
a year of skepticism about whether Obama's message of
hope would have mainstream appeal, his rousing victory
over presumptive nominee Hillary Clinton sent a clear
message that Democratic voters may not be as excited as
the experts have predicted about the Clinton family
returning to the White House.
Or maybe it didn't. Barely a week after Obama's
triumph, Senator Clinton stormed back in New
Hampshire, defeating Obama by three percentage points
while claiming to be the "comeback kid."
After the first week of the 2008 election season one
thing is certain---this will be a bitterly fought campaign
to determine whether the nation's first black, or first
woman, will carry the Democratic standard into the
general election.
Nevertheless, at this stage a number of pundits continue
to maintain that the record turnouts in both Iowa and
New Hampshire are due in great part to the popularity of
Obama, particularly with young white voters. If this
wisdom continues to hold true, it potentially heralds that
a new dawn has risen in America, one in which faith and
hard work can overcome the limitations of race that has
for so long been an ugly stain on our political tapestry.
Obama's Iowa victory and second place finish in New
Hampshire, both states with few black voters, seemingly
validates the Founding Fathers words that "We hold
these truths self evident that all men are created equal."
In spite of our tortured racial history, Obama' s
popularity with young whites is irrefutable evidence that
race is no longer an automatic hindrance to upward
mobility.
This is an extraordinary occurrence considering that just
46 years ago, when Obama was born, blacks were
disenfranchised by law in many areas of the United
States as the Voting Rights Act had yet to be passed.
Now, a black man has a legitimate chance to be
president.
Obama's victory invokes Abraham Lincoln's words at
Gettysburg that a government "of, by and for the people
shall not perish from the Earth." Over the past fifty
years, the American government has often resembled a-
house of ill repute, where special interests and corporate
behemoths establish the political agenda by lining the
pockets of politicians anxious to do their bidding.
Obama has pledged to fight against these interests and
restore the populist idealism that this country so
desperately needs. Obama, born to humble beginnings,

seems to best understand that a majority of Americans
face low wages and escalating living costs. Obama's
victory is directly attributable to his credibility on fixing
a health care industry that has left so many uninsured or
solving the energy crisis that has gasoline prices over
three dollars per gallon.
Through Obama, the idea that we are endowed with the
"right to Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness" will .
also extend to our soldiers in Iraq, many of whom are
hailed as heroes by our current administration but return
home to an uncertain job market, a deficient veteran's
affairs administration and squalid conditions ft veteran's
hospitals.
Despite Obama's success, some pundits have tried to
steal his thunder. Many are questioning whether he will
receive the support of blacks in the South in the next
few weeks. These concerns are based upon the early
support that Senator Clinton has received from several
prominent black political and social leaders.
As Obama has repeatedly stated, more blacks will begin
to follow him once they see that he is a viable candidate.
I agree. Many politically conscious blacks are hesitant
to see their votes wasted. With his recent showings,
Obama has exorcised the demons that have led some
blacks to believe that there is no way on God's Earth
that "white folks" will allow a black man to become
president. Hopefully, this one remaining aspect of our
racial past will be relegated forever to the shelves of
history.
One can only hope that Obama's likely success among
blacks will also permanently eliminate the patronizing
notion that blacks can be "told" who to vote for by black
political leaders. While this may have been true when
literacy rates and political understanding were low
among black voters, today, black voters are very
informed about the candidates and the issues. The
concept of one person---one vote extends to the black
voting public. Few, if any, will make their decisions
solely because their pastor or local political leader
endorses one candidate over another.
The road ahead for Obama is fraught with difficulties.
Clinton, too, is well financed and equally resolved to
fight for the nomination. Nevertheless, whether Obama
ultimately prevails or not his cross-racial appeal
signifies that a significant step along the road to racial
*harmony.

Letters

to the

SEditor


Dear Editor,
Last night the Midway City Council quitely voted to submit ordinance 2007 AM 22 of The
Comprehensive plan, to the Dept of Community Affairs. The reason I say quietly, is because the
meetings when this Amendment was discussed, were not advertised properly, thus hardly anyone
was aware of the preceedings by re-submitting the Holly branch Subdivision in this amendment, its
rejection by the DCA is eminent.
Why do I say this?
(1) The wedands permit from The Army Corps of Engineers has been cancelled. This road and
bridges cannot be built, without approval from Army Corps.
(2) There is no compelling need for 100-300 new homes, when 33% or over 800 homes built
recendy are vacant.
(3) Gov. Crist has expressed concern of this subdivision, because of the wetlands and closeness to
the Ockolocknee River. (1/4 mile).
(4) There will be a traffic problem. According to the Dept of Transportation, over 18,000 cars
pass the entrance (the only entrance) to Holly Branch Subdivision, daily. This would increase by
300-500, if these homes are built. Need I say more?
Sincerely Bill Lett


Dear Editor,
Congressman Ron Paul is the leading advocate/defender of liberty & the closest thing to the
founding fathers in D.C aka the district of criminals. He works tirelessly for limited govt as it was
meant to be & is known as Dr.No by his colleagues & constituents for his consistent voting
record.How about a president who actually adheres to & believes in the Constitution?
He is the only real & true GOP conservative running for the White House & merits all our
support now as the Florida primary is a few weeks away.
Its high time We the People say to those in both parties no more business as usual & stop being
content & satisfied with the corrupt & incompetent status quo as neither of them will seriously
listen to US or serve our real national interests & put our house in order & are only leading US to
ruin with this bogus Iraq war,reckless borrowing & spending & unwillingness to secure our borders
against foreign invasion by illegal aliens etc etc,
Ron Paul as president will reverse such a perilous self destructive course.
Lets all back him now to restore US & take back America b4 its too late.

Stewart Street wins Science Brain Brawl


What color do you get when
you mix orange, black, red, and
white? On Friday, December
14, 2007, Stewart Street
Elementary School and George
W. Munroe Elementary School
mixed their respective school
colors and come up with
"GREEN."
Yes, "green!"
This day was the Science
Brain Brawl hosted by
GWMES. The atmosphere was
one of atoms, neutrons, dirt,
plants, and everything science..


There was even a smattering of
science vocabulary.
The Science Brain Brawl was
open this first time only to fifth
graders because science is now
included in the fifth grade
FCAT.
Students answered such
questions as: What form of ener-
gy is transferred from the Sun
to the Earth? What causes the
Earth to have different seasons?
What is the primary role of
decomposers in the environ-
ment? Can you answer these


questions? Both teams did a
great job!
Stewart Street ultimately
"mixed their colors a little
stronger arriving at a slightly
darker shade of "green" to win
the Science Brain Brawl.
Students participating in this
inaugural Science Brain Brawl
from Stewart Street were:
Captain, Nydia McSwain,
Shanterria Williams, Keiron
York, Anthony Thomas, and
Kyla Robinson. .

Lawrence, Massachusetts sprang up on the
banks of the Merrimack River during the 1840's.
The town surrounded textile factories built
beside a newly constructed dam that provided
them with inexpensive power to drive their
machinery. The developers planned a town of
30,000 people filled with workers who fulfilled
their vision of New England society.-In 1846,Charles
Storrow, whose company built the dam, wrote:
I have never felt so strongly as I do now ...
How much the comfort, welfare and happiness of a
community depends upon its moral condition ...
our place is cursed if we do not grow up a sober,
temperate, industrious and order-loving people.
By 1912, Lawrence had grown to 85,000
residents. Most were newly arrived immigrants,
recruited from eastern and southern Europe by
the mill owners. For the most part, they were
unskilled, and lived in some of the worst condi-
tions in the country. Their pay averaged $8.76
per week, so the only affordable housing avail-
able was in filthy and decrepit tenements owned
by the mills.


With rents ranging from $1,00 to $6.00 per
week, workers often sent their children to work in
the mills as soon as they could pass for fourteen
(the earliest age at which children could legally
work). According to a report by Dr. Elizabeth
Shapleigh, a Lawrence physician:
A considerable number of the boys and girls die
within the first two or three years after beginning
work... thirty-six out of every. 100 of all the men and
women who work in the mill die before or by the time
they are twenty-five years of age.
When the State of Massachusetts reduced
the work week from fifty-six to fifty-four hours a
week in January, 1912, workers' incomes were fur-
ther reduced, as mill owners paid them for two
hours less work each week. To the workers, it meant
three fewer loaves of bread in the weekly family
grocery basket. It was the final straw.
The first paychecks of 1912 were distributed
on January 12. At the Washington Mill, cries of
"short pay, short pay" could be heard throughout
the mill. Looms stopped. Sweepers stopped
sweeping. The work force, most of whom were first
generation Italian immigrants, exploded. The own-
ers had gone too far.
Storming out of the mill, hundreds of work-
ers raced through other mills and convinced their
workers to strike. By the end of the day, 10,000 had
walked out. Within a few days, there were 23,000.
They were angry,and fighting to feed their families.
However, with no plan, and no leader they decided
to ask the International Workers of the World, a
union, to help them.
A day later,Joe Ettor arrived. He was an expe-
rienced organizer who had led other strikes, and he

factory district twenty-four houAs a day. When
street parades were outlawed, strikers marched
on the sidewalks.
The owners expected the stiike to collapse
in a few days. It didn't. When female marchers
chanted, "We want bread and roses," to signify
that they wanted more than just a subsistence
wage, it struck a sympathetic cord across the
nation. To this day, the strike is known as the
Bread and Roses Strike.
After eight weeks, families of the strikers
began sending their children to. other homes
around New England, because they feared the
police would beat the children. When two hun-
dred women and children approached the train
station, local police and soldiers attacked them
with clubs. Instantly, the owners lost all public
support. Even Congress called for an investiga-
tion into wages and living conditions in Lawrence.
Two weeks later, It was over. Mill owners
agreed to most of the strikers' original demands,
making their victory a watershed in American
labor history. Find out more about the strike, the

On Demember 7, nieces, nephews, cousins and Uncle Sam paid
belated tribute to a forgotten Gadsden County man held prisoner on
Corregidor after the Philippines fell to Japan in Spring, 1942 (WW II).
It took all of 65 years, but SSgt. William Kemper Davis, who enlisted
from Greensboro (FL), was honored with a permanent memorial
marker at his family's gravesite in Freeport (Walton Co.), FL.
Some 30 relatives, plus a bag piper and two Eglin AFB Honor Guard
Airmen expressed gratitude to SSgt. Davis, and all others affected by
that moment in history when Pearl Harbor was attached.
Among those attending the event were children of Davis' brother,
who flew here from Brownwood, TX. These included Vonne Croft
Cornett. Walter B. Croft and wife; Gail William (Bill, also known as
Kemper) Croft an dDoyce (Pee Wee) Croft.
Their father, John Bruce Croft, also grew up in Greensboro and
served in W W II. Like most of his era, "he was reticent about the
War, and Uncle Billy's sacrifice, according to his daughter Vonne.
Speaking tothe group, Tom Bowen Jr. of Chipley said, "Bataan and
Corregidor are synonymous with desperate resistance, extreme
brutality and suffering and untimely death. We cannot comprehend
nor relate to these severe ordeals nor to the abandonment they
experienced in a very far off place, these 65 years ago. But today in
this tranquil place we pause to give honor, remembering his sacrifice."
Bowen added: "A popular and appropriate epitaph says: They gave
all their tomorrows so that we might be here today. That's why we are
here ... doing what we do today."
Bowens's mother, Saradee (Davis) Bowen and her brother Forrest -
Sawdust natives shared memories of "Uncle Billy" wth the Croft
Family, who brought the U.S. Flag their family was sent in 1943 at
the time of the notification of death. It was included in the Eglin
Honor Guards rite of folding.
A proclamation signed by President Franklin Roosevelt, only
recently discovered, was presented to the Crofts.

Jesus preaching and he saw two
fishermen casting their nets into the
sea. He told them to follow him
that he would make them fishers of
men. They left all that they had and
began to follow Jesus.
A little while later Jesus walked
past two more fishermen and told
them the same thing as before.
These two men left their father and
his servants and began to follow
Jesus that day. Jesus was teaching
the new disciples his doctrine and
they were astonished by his
teaching.

The Department of

has issued a preliminary
Flood Insurance Study
(FIS) and Flood
Insurance Rate Map
(FIRM) reflecting new or
modified Base (1%
annual chance) Flood
Elevations (BFEs) within
Gadsden County and,
incorporated areas.
Technical information or
comments are solicited
on the proposed and
proposed modified BFEs
shown on the preliminary
FIS and FIRM for the
cities of Chatahoochee,
Midway and Quincy and
the unincorporated areas
of Gadsden County.
These BFEs and modi-
fied BFEs are the basis
for the floodplain man-
agement measures that
your community is
required to either adopt
or show evidence of
being already in effect in
order to qualify or remain
qualified for participation
in the National Flood
Insurance Program.
However, before the
BFEs or modified BFEs
are effective for flood-
plain management pur-
poses, you will be pro-
vided an opportunity to
appeal the proposed ele-
vations. For information'
on the statutory 90-day
period provided for

Other commission members and that he and City Attorney


Harold Knowles met with
Sembler for four hours Saturday.
Sembler was not at Tuesday's
meeting.
"We started talking about their
commitment to the community,"
Jefferson said.
Sembler had offered the City of
Quincy $5,000 per acre for its
343-acre business park, of which
only 112 acres is developable; the
rest of the park is designated as
wetlands.
He gave city officials a Dec. 31
deadline to formally decline or
accept his offer, citing pending
contracts for concrete products the
company has to produce and ship
in March.
Jefferson said Sembler told him


he will hire 50 new employees
"pretty quickly" at pay rates
ranging from minimum wage to
$14 per hour. He anticipates the
company will create up to 150
new jobs within a year.
"As their business unfolds, there
will be more jobs," Jefferson said.
The city will also benefit from
the tax revenue on the sale of the
North Florida Tomatoes
warehouse and will see a slight
property tax increase from the
business of around $1,500
annually, Jefferson said.
CDS Hollow Core Plant
Manager Scott Watson said the
company plans to hire for
positions ranging from entry-
level, requiring no high school


diploma, to professional positions.
Jefferson said Wednesday
morning he expected a final
contract that day from Sembler
and planned to return it by Friday.
"It's huge, No. 1, to have some
activity in the park," he said. "We
believe activity breeds activity.
No. 2, it's huge to have some
good-paying jobs in the city."
The only other business park
resident currently .is Hanson Pipe,
which manufactures concrete
pipes. The company serves a
different clientele that CDS,
which makes products used to
build bridges, residential and
commercial structures and
sanitary and stormwater
structures.


Founded in 1999 with 12i
employees, CDS now has 110,
employees and a casting yard inm
Midway on 38 acres and another
in Quincy housed in a 30,000-;
square-foot facility on 9 acres.
Watson told commissioners'
Tuesday night the company is on;
the verge of a growth spurt.
It is one of only a few'
companies in the nation certified'
through the Precast/Prestressed'
Concrete Institute (PCI) to

"We're competitive," Watson
said.
"We have high hopes and intend
to have a good future."

Quincy sign shop hopes to take off under new ownership


By LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor

Gadsden County native Victor
Ferrara says what he saw as a good
deal could be a bargain for area
residents as well.


Ferrara recently bought Curtis
Signs on Mainline Street in
Quincy.
With a new name, Custom Sign
Creations, a new owner and a new
manager, Dana Bradley, Ferrara
expects business to take off.


"I happened along a deal and
decided to take it," said Ferrara. "I
thought it would be interesting."
Ferrara, 49, once owned
Stumpknocker's Restaurant. He
sees potential for growth at
Custom Sign Creations and is


planning to expand the business to
be able to offer boat and car wraps.
"I'd really like to get into boat
wraps. We may do t-shirts," he
said. "We are going to a larger
cutter this week what we use
now is a 15-inch vinyl. We're


moving to a 24-inch cutter and
probably, by. the end of the year, a
54-inch cutter."
The shop offers magnetic, metal,
wood, neon and plastic signs,
decals, banners and crane service
currently.


"It's new and improved. We want
to be the best we can be for this
area," he said. "We want to be the
sign people for this area."
Custom Sign Creations is open
Monday through Friday from 8
a.m. to 5 p.m.

Times News Editor

Greensboro Elementary stu-
dents started the new year in a
new school.
When students went back to
school this week after Christmas
break, they took up residence in
the old West Gadsden High
School building a luxury in
many ways, Principal Ella
Ponder said.
"The facility itself is better
(than the elementary school
building). There is more space
and more restroom facilities,"
Ponder said. "Now teachers
have work rooms we didn't
have those before."


Gadsden County Schools
Superintendent Reginald James
said Tuesday he's pleased with
the opportunities the new site
will offer Greensboro
Elementary students and staff.
"I'm really excited about
this. We think the facility cer-
tainly has a lot of things the old
facility doesn't have," he said.
"I think the kids will benefit -
this facility has science labs and
is equipped for extracurricular
activities. It's a more modem
facility than they were in."
Ponder said. the school's lay-
out makes navigation easy.
"Everything students need is
really in one big square the
media center, the gymnasium,"
she said. "Everything is really
mapped out for them."
Fourth-grade teacher Connie
Youngblood she and her stu-
dents are grateful for the extra
space the school affords them
and its educational opportuni-
ties, including computer labs
and science labs.
"We really like this school -
the space and the brightness, we
love it," she said.
The school's 457 students in
grades pre-k through five will
not likely see any schedule
changes as a result of the move,
Ponder said.
But the site has been spruced
up a bit since West Gadsden
High School students moved to
their brand-new school across
the street at the beginning of the
year.
"New carpet, new furniture,
new textbook material and there
are new ceilings in a lot of class-
rooms," Ponder said.
"Bathrooms were added to the
pre-k and kindergarten class-
rooms. There is a new fence up
to separate students from the


highway and a sidewalk to get
students safely across to the
high school if needed."
Maintenance workers and
teachers pitched in to move fur-
niture and educational materials
from the old school to the new
site during Christmas break.
"The maintenance depart-
ment has been fantastic,"
Ponder said. "Teachers gave up


half their holiday to help get
prepared. They did an excellent
job. We also had some parent
volunteers and some business
partners help."
Ponder is in her second year
as principal of Greensboro
Elementary and in her 16th year
of employment at the school.
She served as assistant principal
before being named principal.

Commissioner Andy Gay said
he felt it is imperative that Bogan
set and met perimeters and
performance objectives for 2008.
But not everyone had problems
with Bogan. Mayor Keith
Dowdell said he was okay with
Bogan's preformance, but that he
has a few things to work on this
year. After meeting with Bogan,
Dowdell said he has been given
100 percent assurance that he will
work on those things, which
Dowdell would not list.
In other matters:
*Auditor Ronald Thompkins of
Watson-Rice, LLC. that the city's
2006 audit should be complete
within two weeks,


*Tabled the fate of a church at
the comer of S. Madison Street

church applied for and was
granted permits to open although
the city thought there was a
moratorium of church in the
central business district.
*Approved an ordinance that
would transmit the

*Adopted the Housing
