Controlling

blood sugar

levels critical

for diabetics


By SYLVtA BYRD
Gadsden County Health Department
Administrator
Millions of people have diabetes mellitus,
commonly called diabetes. If you have dia-
betes, your body can't make or use insulin.
Insulin helps change sugar into energy to keep
you alive. You may be surprised to know that
many of these people don't even know they
have it. Diabetes is a serious disease and
should not be ignored. If you have it, correct
treatment can help you live a long and healthy
life.
Type 2 diabetes is usually found in people
over 45, who have'diabetes in their family,
who are overweight, who don't exercise, and
who have cholesterol problems. It is also
common in certain racial and ethnic groups
(blacks, American Indians, and Hispanics)
and in women who had diabetes when they
were pregnant. With the obesity epidemic,
much younger people now have diabetes. If
you have type 2 diabetes, your body cannot
make enough insulin or correctly use it.
Treatment is diabetes pills and sometimes
insulin injections, as well as diet and exercise.
The best way to take care of your diabetes
is to make sure the levels or amount of sugar
in your blood are near the normal range. This'
will make you feel better and help you stay

City passes on hiring financial firm



Commission elects to continue with current arrangement


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
The lack of a Finance Director has at
least one commissioner ready to hire a
management firm that will report to
the city commission directly, but the
motion to do so died on the floor for
lack of a second.
The' city's charter mandates that the
city commission hire a finance director


and a city manager. However, it's been
two year's since the city had a finance
director and it doesn't look promising
that there will be one anytime soon if
Tuesday night's regular meeting was
any indication.
City Manager Bill Bogan said he
didn't think that hiring a firm would be
in the best interest of the city. He said
that he has people in the finance
department now who are learning the


job and will be able to get the job
done. He expects the staff snuff in the next four to six months.
Bogan has been both the city
manager and the finance director since
he took the manager's job 20 months
ago. Commissioner Sherrie Taylor's
motion to hire a firm then died for lack
of a second. She said she was not
satisfied with the manager's response
that he is looking for a finance director


each time she wants to know where
the city stands on hiring a finance
director.
"We need another set of eyes looking
at our revefiues," she said. The city has
not had a fiance director since October
2005. Taylor said she has asked the
manager to get a finance director but

continued with musical
selections by members of the East
Gadsden High School chtlrus
who will be performing in
concert at Carnegie Hall in New
York City in mid-April. The
breakfast, which was a full
southern fare, was free but the
audience donated $550 to help
the students make the trip which
will cost nearly $40,000. The
Superintendent of School,


Reginald James, announced that
he planned to raise $15,000
toward the effort.
"The program was beautiful.
I've been telling everyone I met
about how impressed I was with
the kids reading their essays and
those kids singing in the chorus
was great," said Patricia Tennell,
president of the Scarlet Camelia
Hatters of Red Hat Society. The
ladies of the society attracted


quite a bit of attention in their
bright red and deep purple outfits.
This was the first time members
of the organization had attended
the breakfast as a group.
Members of the sponsoring
organization, the Gadsden County
Chapter of the National Hook-Up
of Black Women, agreed that
Monday's breakfast was another
success in the 12-year history of
the breakfast. The breakfast was


co-sponsored by the City of
Quincy and the MLK, Jr.
Foundation of Florida, Inc.
Following the breakfast many
of the attendees went to Gretna
for that city's Commemorative
Celebration. The Deliverance
Temple Ministries Choir gave
rousing renditions of several
spiritual selections. Bishop Titus
B. Deas, Jr., keynote speaker,
brought many in the audience to
their feet as he urged African-
Americans to take responsibility
for their actions.
"He called Dr. Martin Luther
King, Jr. "the Moses of his time."
"I ask you today to come together
in the spirit of love, unity, and
brotherhood. The only way that
we can prosper is to join hands
with each other. As long as you
linger in the past you'll never see
the promised land," the Rev.
Deas said.
The cities of Chattahoochee,
Havana, and Midway also held
various events commemorating
the birth of Dr. Martin Luther
King, Jr.

City sends church sign issue to Historical Preservation Commission


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

A church sign on North Adams
Street has caused the Quincy
Commission to send the matter
back to the Quincy Historic
Preservation Commission,n


New Revelation Church of
Christ submitted a letter of appeal
for the denial of a certificate of
appropriateness for the
installation of a sign on their
property. The church
commissioned a local sign
company and paid $3,000 to have


a sign painted and erected. The
only problem is that the church
sign is the wrong color blue as
determined by the commission.
The sign is cobalt blue anli
cobalt blue is not one of the
colors approved by the State of
Florida as a color used in a state


designated historic neighborhood.
The church's minister, Bishop
Judson Duval, Sr. of Tallahssee,
said he didn't know anything the
historic colors when the church
commissioned the sign.
In the meantime, the sign
company has changed ownership
and the new company will only
honor the contract as agreed to by
the previous owner. Repainting


the sign a historically approved
blue will cost the church more
money. Originally the sign was
too tall for the area but the
historic committee agreed that it
the sign was a foot lower, it
would be acceptable in height.
In it's background information,
city staff wrote that "the sign
. company in manufacturing this
sign did not adhere to the City of


Quincy Code, Section 46."
"The staff fails to inform you
and puts the burden of
responsibility on the customer not
the sign company. it is important
to support the Quincy Historic
Preservation Commission. There
was never an application
submitted until after the sign was

it has not happened. She poined
out that city officials are in
violation of the charter and that
the auditors made it clear that the
finance director needs to be
someone other than the city
manager.
"You cannot do it all and do it
effectively," Taylor said of Bogan
wearing two hats.
"When you said for him to hire
a Certified Public Accountant
(CPA) you put a price tag on it
that we couldn't afford," said
Mayor Keith Dowdell. "We
actually told the city manager to
hire a CPA, now we're telling him
we didn't say that. It's confusing,"
he said.
Last year Bogan presented two
candidates for finance director
and the commission turned them
both down. One, who had been a
fianance in another city larger
than Quincy, was confused
between a qualified and an
unqualified audit. Despite the
candidates "lack of terminology"
Bogan said he believed the man
would have made a good finance
director.
"No matter who I bring before
you all, even if you vote against
someone, you all should at least
be civil," Bogan said.
Commissioner Andy Gay said
that many cities throughout the
state with popluations
comparable to Quinicy run their
city's finances effectively. "We
don't need a outside firm to come

Commissioner Derrick Elias
suggested that since Bogan is a

finding a city manager.

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

Contemplation




A feline fuss


A cat has decided to take up residence in
our office. I didn't know that he was here
until last Sunday. I came into the office, as
I often do on weekends, to get a little jump
start on my work. Before settling in, a
decided to take a little trip to the
"necessary room" in the back of the
building.
When I opened the door of the common
area before you get to the restroom, the cat
-jumped out and scampered across the
length of building. It scared the living
daylights out of me and the way that cat
was running I had scared him too.
Needless to say, I never went to the
restroom, I just turned around, grabbed my
purse and got out of there.
As many of you know, I have a vivid
imagination and I take any situation to it's
illogical conclusion. Before I got out of the
door, I imagined the cat to be some sort of
possessed animal that would double or
triple his size stalking first and then
attacking me before I could get out of the
office.
I imagined myself so nervous that I
couldn't get the key in the door so that I
could escape. Next, I gave the cat
supernatural powers. Even if I was able to
get away from this (by now) 200-plus
pound monster, it would somehow know
where I live and track me down at home.
I got out of the office, never to return
until Tuesday when I was sure someone


was a in the office. I didn't go to the
restroom early Tuesday either. I waited
until others had made the trip before I
decided to take the chance. I looked
around for the cat before I dashed into the
restroom and locked the door.
Finally, I decided to talk to someone
about that cat. I was relieved to find that
the cat had been sighted by General
Manager Eddie Ledbetter last week. And
the furry fellow had also left the telltale
scent of cat urine in the back storage area.
"It was pretty strong last week...no
mistaking what it was" Eddie informed
me.
I, not a fan of cats, offered to call the
animal control officer to request that they
place a trap in the back and catch the
animal. Needless to say, I never got an
answer from the animal control officer. So
I called the Gadsden County Sheriffs
Office and was immediately transferred to
another officer where they gave me the cell
phone number of an officer.
Well, I called that number and still no
answer. I left a message but at 4:30 p.m. I
guess it was too late in the day to expect a
call back.
The cat's still in the office and I hope that
by the end of the week the cat will have
left voluntarily or someone will claim it or,
miracle of all miracles, someone from
animal control will decided to pay us a,
visit and collect the cat.

When we hunker down to talk, we're all on the same level, by Kesley
Colbert, just a good ole boy that likes to write.


We didn't need Roman numerals!


John Ingram would take the heel of his
Chuck Taylor All $tars and whap it into the
ground hard enough to create a small
crescent shaped hole. He'd expertly place
the tip of a Wilson "official size and
weight" football in the notch with the top
end tilted back just right. He'd retreat six
steps, get a running start and kick that thing
from one end of the vacant lot beside Billy
Gwaltney's house to the other. Our Super
Bowl was under way!
We did not have any pre-game show. Or
side line announcers. As quick as we could
choose up, we went at it! We didn't stop
for extravagant and well produced
Budweiser commercials; promos for
upcoming Fox productions or station
identification. The focus was on the
football game for goodness sakes!
We were not encumbered by salaries,
agents, portfolios, t. v. interviews, instant
replays or referees. We were out for blood!
And pride! And the thrill of walking home
with bragging rights until the next day!
Listen, there are some things in life
money can't buy.
We'd play with three men on a side. Or
five men on a side.....it didn't matter, if
you'd showed up, you were in the game.
We'd flip to see who kicked off first and
who got to defend the goal by the oak tree.
This was of tantamount importance
because that field ran down hill. Your
offense had a better chance if it was
moving toward Winstead Avenue.
The huddle was a mixture of diplomacy,
amity, wisecracking and guesswork. "Let's
run that stop and go on Ricky, he falls for it
every time." Squeaky Ridinger was the
center and receiver,
"It won't work on third down. He knows
we've got to go long."
"Squeak, if you can block Yogi to the
right, we can hit them with a draw."
"We've still got too far to go. John will
run us down if we don't throw on the side
away from him. We're going to have to roll
out and use the throw back."
"Who died and made you king?"
"You got a better idea?"
"What if we send Marvin over to the
crack in the driveway and fake it to him
and when John breaks that way we hit
Squeaky on the delay?"
"Let's try it."
"Ok, on two, let's break!"
There was no time limit to call a play. We
had to "draw it up in the dirt" on many
occasions. And sometimes you had to get a


little bleeding under control. The defense
wouldn't squawk because if they stopped
you it was their turn to huddle, and figure.
We.did a lot of growing up in that field
beside the Gwaltney house. We argued
over who was going to be Y. A. Tittle or
John David Crow. Terry Harrison liked
Hugh McElhenny. Most everyone wanted
to be Harold "Hopalong" Cassady or Elroy
"Crazy Legs" Hirsch. John Unitas threw a
lot of passes for us. And on defense a fight
would break out over who got to be Ray
Nitschke or Sam Huff. I was J. C. Caroline.
Always. It didn't matter which side of the
ball I was on.
You'd think no grownups and no referees
would'a been a problem. You'd be amazed
how well we worked things out right by
ourselves. Oh, we had a few fights.....they
were a lot quicker than those parliamentary
procedure things..... But mostly one of the
older guys would rule on a "pick" or a
questionable call and the game moved on.
You learned early in life that a little give
and take wouldn't kill you.
By junior high we had outgrown the
Gwaltney field. We moved to the empty lot
between Ricky Hale and Jimmy Mabry's
house. We learned some physics over
* there: Two 130 pound guys colliding at 20
miles an hour caused more pain and
damage than two 90 pounders at 6 miles
per hour!
We also went out for the junior high team
and were disappointed in all the rules and
regulations. Coach Rogers made us run and
do exercises on the days we Weren't
playing! And you couldn't say "Don, you
high-tail it over to the tackling dummy and
cut toward the flag pole. I'll throw it to
you." No sir, you had to remember "X 23
Y pass", "34 fullback buck" and "T right,
motion right, 24 dive right".
It seemed like to us they were trying to
confuse a pretty simple game.
They gave us helmets and shoulder pads..
And shoes that weighed ten pounds a
piece! The coaches "organized" our
scrimmages and wouldn't give us anything
to drink. They yelled a lot if we didn't
score on offense. And they yelled at the
defense when we did score.
But it was mostly just back up and run
into each other....and we had been doing
that for years. We changed coaches with
high school but running on days we
weren't even playing and the yelling

The roadmap to health care reform


By Todd Stottlemyer

We've said this before, but it bears
repeating: Small businesses have said
consistently for 20 years that access to
affordable health care is their biggest
concern and the problem is even greater
today.
We've seen nearly 100 percent
increases in premiums since 2000. On
average, small business pays 18 percent
more than large business for the same
health care benefits. It's clear that the
bottom line for small-business people is
the cost of health insurance and the
growing expense of health care. And
they go hand-in-hand.
Add to that the fact that small business
creates approximately 70 percent of all
new jobs in this country, and it's clear to
see we have a health care crisis on our
hands, and not just for small businesses,
their employees and their dependents,
but for everyone.
Discussions to date have focused on
affordability, coverage or quality. To
small-business people, this is not a
multiple-choice question. The answer is
", all of the above." We simply can't
address the health care crisis unless we
address affordability, coverage and
quality as part of a total solution.
For that reason, the National Federation
of Independent Business has developed a
set of 10 principles that must form the
foundation for any comprehensive health
care reform effort. We have built upon
our extensive research and brought in
some of the best and brightest health
care policy experts from across the
political spectrum to gain their
perspective on health care reform.
We've taken the best ideas to form
these principles. As an example:
7 Universal coverage: This does
not mean a government-run, single-payer
system. It means that everyone should

have access to quality care that is
affordable and that provides protection
. against catastrophic costs.
9% Affordable: We want to provide
access to quality care for all Americans,
so we've got to address both the cost of
health insurance and the increasing cost
of health care.
%o Private and Competitive: Health
care reform needs to take place within a
private and, most importantly, a
competitive marketplace with real
choices for consumers.
%9 Portable. Americans should be
able to go from job to job without the
risk of losing their health insurance.
Otherwise, you have a form of "job
lock" where people are reluctant to go
out and start a new business for fear of
losing their health insurance. That is
fundamentally unhealthy for the
American economy. We want people to
go out and start new enterprises, to have
new ideas and take risks, so that our
economy can continue to create jobs.
We will share these core principles
with policymakers and use them to guide
the development of more specific policy
initiatives. With the presidential
campaigns kicking into high gear and
health care at the top of the domestic
agenda, the time is right to set the table
for reform in 2009. Since sniall
businesses and their employees make up
the largest segment of the uninsured
population, it's critically important for
them to have a seat at that table. With
these principles, small business is giving
policymakers a significant roadmap to
navigate through the maze of options.
Our message? When the health care
system is fixed for small business, it's
'fixed for all Americans.

healthy. Your body needs food from the four
main groups each day: 1) fruits and vegetables, 2)
whole grain, cereals and bread 3) dairy products and
4) meats, fish, poultry, eggs, dried beans and nuts.
Exercise is important for good diabetes control. It
usually lowers blood sugar and may help insulin
work better. Exercise and a healthy diet can also
help you take off extra pounds if you are over-
weight. Check with your doctor before starting any
exercise program. You may need a snack before or
during the activity to avoid having low blood sugar
while you exercise.
Daily monitoring and careful control of blood
sugar levels are the most important steps to take for
people with diabetes. If not treated, diabetes can
cause high blood sugar which could make you
thirsty, tired, lose weight, urinate often, or give you
infections that won't go away. Diabetes can also
cause many serious health problems which could
hurt your eyes, kidneys, nerves, or heart.
Your doctor will tell you how often to check your
blood sugar level. To do this, you will need to take
a drop of your blood and place it on a special test
strip. Then a device, called a blood glucose meter,
reads the strip. This device measures the amount of
sugar in your blood. Writing down this level, along
with the time and date, will help you see how well
your treatment plan is working. Testing is critical
for controlling your blood sugar levels, feeling your
best and avoiding consequences of lack of control.
It easier now than ever to monitor your blood
sugar levels You may be qualify for any of the fol-
lowing programs:
1) You may qualify for free testing strips
through the Prescription Medical Assistance pro-
gram. An application fee of $25 is required. Call
875-2143.
2) Discount medications and strips with the
county discount drug card available without qualify-
ing through the Board of County Commissioners.
For information or to obtain a card, call Charles
Chapman at 627-6684.
3) Discount medications including strips with
the Florida Discount Drug Card. This is available
for people 60 and older. People under may qualify if
income is under 300 percent of the Federal Poverty
Level. This means 1) $30,636 per year (for an indi-
vidual), 2) $41,076 per year (for a family of two)
and 3) $61,956 per year (for a family of four). A
chart for incomes for larger families is available on
line. Cards will be mailed within five working days
of receipt of the application. There is an activation
fee of $1.50. To enroll call 1-866-341-8894 or TTY

We must
rely on the
public but
we also real-
ize that the
actual pre-
ception
some people Major Ferman
have of the Richardson
police is
pretty hard," Richardson said.
He said it is the responsibili-
ty of the police to also help citi-
zens understand the law and that
the course helps officer react to
people properly. Richardson
said one of the hardest parts of a
police officer's work today is
explaining the difference real
and 'vhat they see on television.
"Interestingly, sometimes cit-


izens think we can just go to the
computer, put in a set of finger-
prints or other information and
immediately solve a crime.
There is a difference between
what happens on CSI and what
happens in real life. It is our
responsibility to inform the pub-
lic. This course teaches officers
that we have the authority and
obligation to provide a level of
service to the community and
citizens have a right to expect a
high level of service at all
times," he said.
While officers have a range
of discretion in some matters, he
said, the course also teaches
officers that they sometimes
have to give a person who has
done wrong a break, when it
comes to minor infractions.

HES collecting 'Pennies for Patients' Schoot mern


Students at Havana
Elementary School are proudly
participating in The Leukemia
& Lymphoma Society's
Pennies for Patients@ program,
one of the Society's national
School & Youth Programs that
raises money to find cures for
leukemia, lymphoma and
myeloma while providing
information and support servic-
es to patients and their fami-
lies.
Pennies for Patients teaches
students caring, sharing,
respect for others and the value
of community service, in addi-
tion to supporting an important
cause. The need for cures is


critical: 747,465 Americans are
battling blood cancers, and
leukemia remains the #1 fatal
cancer among children and
youth adults under the age of
20.
Havana Elementary's
Pennies for Patients program
will take place for a three-week
period of January 14 and run
through january 31, 2008. The
class raising the most funds in
the school will receive a
catered luncheon. The school
may also qualify for additional
prizes based on the amount
raised.
"Our students' involvement
with The Leukemia &


Lymphoma Society teaches
them that they can make an
important difference in the
lives of others," said Principal
Hilda Jackson.
Guidance counselor Mrs.
Patricia S. Harris believes that
this is a wonderful program for
the students to take part in and
the expected results of their
efforts will benefit an outstand-
ing organization.
Additionally, because
Havana Elementary School is
actively involved in a Positive
Action program, under the
direction of Dr. Beverly Nash,
which emphasizes good char-
acter, this project gives testi-


mony to the fact that students
are learning to care for others,
and they have the courage to
take on this project to help
someone else.
Join our efforts! You, too,
can donate to this cause. Please
send your donations to Havana
Elementary School in care of
Mrs. Patricia Harris. All checks
or money orders should be
made out to the school. The
school thanks you for what do
to help the Pennies for Patients
drive.
For more information,
please call the school at 539-
2877 and ask for the guidance
counselor, Patricia Harris.

To pay tribute to the late Dr.
Martin Luther King, Jr., more
than 200 Boys & Girls Clubs
members ages 5-18 marched in
the Martin Luther King Day
parade on Monday, Jan. 21 at 10
a.m. in downtown Monticello.
Their participation in the event
symbolizes the start of "40 Days
of Nonviolence: Building the
Beloved Community," a national
campaign of service and
education projects aimed at
promoting Dr. King's message
of nonviolence and social justice
as the 40th anniversary of his
assassination approaches.
Beginning Monday, members
of all 17 Clubs within the Boys
& Girls Clubs of the Big Bend
pledged to become involved in
community service projects
through opportunities organized
by Club directors over the next
40 days. Projects include
visiting with seniors at assisted
living facilities, picking up trash
on local streets, taking meals to
families with loved ones in
hospice care and other
benevolent activities. These
good works will take place in
Jefferson, Leon, Franklin and


Gadsden counties,'where the Big
Bend Clubs are located.
"While all of our Clubs
currently participate in
community service efforts, the
40 Days of Nonviolence Pledge
highlights Dr. King's message of
peace and reminds us that the
way to achieve it is through
personal commitment to our
communities," said J.R. Davis,
vice president of operations for
the Boys & Girls Clubs of the
Big Bend and the parade's
Grand Marshall. "By actively
engaging our kids in service and
teaching them the principles of
nonviolence, we enable them to
make a positive difference in the
world and create lasting
change."
Dr. King believed that
applying the principles of
nonviolence in all areas of one's
life would ultimately bring
about the Beloved Community,


the end goal of nonviolence,
where differences are resolved
peaceably and reconciliation
occurs among adversaries.
The 40 Days of Nonviolence is
spearheaded by the National
Alliance for Faith and Justice as
part of the PEN or PENCIL
B.U.S. Boycott Service-
Learning Movement, an effort to
emphasize the importance of
choosing the pencil (education)
over the pen (penitentiary), and
reduce behavior that might lead
to negative contact with law
enforcement. To learn more
about the initiative visit
www.mlkday.gov.
Established in 1992 to help
curb local youth crime and
delinquency, the Boys & Girls
Clubs of the Big Bend offers
kids ages 5-18 a positive place
to go after school, where they
can grow personally and
academically in a safe and


structured environment.
Operating 17 Clubs in Franklin,
Gadsden, Jefferson and Leon
counties and serving more than
4,000 members every year, the
organization provides a
compelling alternative to drugs,
crime, gang activity 'and other
negative influences affecting
local youth today, and enables
members to realize their full
potential as productive, caring
and responsible citizens. To

according to Jesus Christ: That ye
may with one mind and one
mouth glorify God, even the
Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Wherefore ye one another, as
Chrisd also received us to the
Glory of God.
Romans 15:5-7


PROPERTY TAX FACTS

PROPOSED CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT


DOUBLING THE HOMESTEAD-
Allows an additional $25,000 dollar exemption on Homestead Property.
Applies only to those properties whose assessed value is greater than $50,000 dollars.
This additional exemption applies to those values between $50,000 and $75,000.
This exemption does NOT apply to taxes levied by the School Board.

Example:
*If your house is assessed at less than $50,000 dollars, you will not benefit from
the proposed exemption.
*If your house is assessed at $75,000 dollars, your estimated savings if the pro
posed amendment passes is $219.86.


PORTABILITY-
Allows a homeowner to transfer the Save Out Homes benefit of an existing homestead to
a new homestead (up to $500,000). If the new homestead is more valuable than the old
homestead, a taxpayer can transfer their entire Save Our Homes differential (up to
$500,000).
If a taxpayer buys a less expensive home, a percentage equal to the current percentage of
the Save Out Homes differential to the new residence. Homesteads that sold during 2006
and prior years do not qualify for portability.
Starting with the year 2007, property owners who sell their homestead have up to 2 years
to transfer the differential to a new homestead.
The portability provision will be applied to all levies for the 2008 tax roll.


Non-Homestead Properties 10% cap-
If passes, this amendment provides for a 10% limit in the increase in assessed value of all
non-homestead properties. The 2008 tax year would be the "base year" and the 10% cap
would apply in 2009. This provision does NOT apply to taxes levied by the School
Board.


TANGIBLE PERSONAL PROPERTY EXEMPTION-
This provision grants a new $25,000.00 dollar exemption for Tangible Personal Property
(business equipment etc.). For the 2008 Tax Year, all Tangible Personal Property filers
must file a return, however, if the value of the tangible property is less than $25,000.00
dollars they will be exempt for the 2008 tax year and will not have to file a return in sub
sequent years unless the value of their Tangible Personal Property exceeds $25,000.00.
This exemption applies to all taxes levied.

In order for these new provisions to apply, this constitutional amendment must be approved by
60% of the voters in the January 29, 2008 special election.

All of these provisions are contained in a single constitutional amendment, you cannot choose to
vote for one provision and not another.

Please contact the Gadsden County Property Appraiser's office at 850-627-7168 for any additional
information.

returned from the "2008
Bridging the Gap Debt Free
Living Cruise", held January
14-18, 2008. "We wanted to
offer an opportunity for people
to better their lives and -their
standard of living." Stated
Bishop Deas. "Some people
will go on a cruise that will
never come into a regular
church service, however, God
called us to reach the world for
Him."
The "Bridging the Gap Debt
Free Living Cruise" was
onboard the Navigator of the
Seas of Royal Caribbean
International Cruise Lines. The
countries visited were Belize

Free Living by Rev. Matthew
M. Carter II (pastor of Beulah
Hill M.B. Church, in Gretna)

Experience by Travis Potter,
President of TNT Solutions.
"We had people on this cruise
from throughout the southeast,
including south Georgia and
from Florida (those from Leon


and Gadsden Counties;
Orlando, Miami and south Dade
County)." Bishop Deas said. "
We have already begun our
planning for next year by identi-
fying additional topics of inter-'
est and ports of call. In addition
to blessing the lives of those on
the cruise with us, we were able
to bless the lives of people in
different countries for the glory
of God!"

verse of the wede:
And it came to pass the selfsame day, that the Lord did bring the children of Israel out of
the land of Egypt by their armies. Exodus 12:51 (KJV)


The Pharaoh had taxed the
children of Israel for many years.
God heard their cry to be freed
from bondage.
After several plagues upon
Egypt the king decided to let them
go. They packed up their
belongings and Moses led them
from Rameses to Succoth.
While the Israelites were fleeing
the Pharaoh changed his mind so
his soldiers went to get them. God
told Moses to part the water with
his staff and the water inade a wall
of dry land for the children of Israel
to cross. Just as the soldiers were
about to catch them the waters fell
and God delivered the children of
Israel from the King of Egypt.
Many of Pharaoh's army was
destroyed that day.

FamivlyU Timie Thiis week:
Read the story of Moses leading the children of Israel out of Egypt as a Family.

made," said Commissioner Andy
Gay.
Building and Planning Director,
Timmi Fadiora, said the sign
company should have contacted the
city. It is the color selection is the
main reason the preservation
commission recommended non-
approval.
Part of the problem, according to
Commissioner Sherrie Taylor, is
that when the church was purchased
the owners didn't know they were
in an historic district. She suggested
that city have a educational and
information campaign about what is
and what is not in the historic
district.
City Attorney Jakc McLean
informed commissioners that they


could not substiture their judgement
just because they disagree with the
preservation commissioners's
choices. Overturning the
commissioner's recommendation
was not a "prudent thing to do"
McLean advised.
The sign color issue will be
revisited by Historic Preservation
Commission during the February 4
meeting in an attempt to settle the
matter.
City Manager Bill Bogan
informed commissioenrs that the
city's parks and Recreation
Department has been selected as
one of three charities or non-profit
organizations in the southeast that
will be given a 2008 Chevrolet
Tahoe to use as a raffle tool. The

tickets at $5 each and can keep all

Chevy is responsible for the Parks
and Recreation Department's
participation in the program.
In a separate matter, Bogan
informed commissioners that he
received letter from the Tax
Collector's Office informing him
that the city would lose about
$56,000 in property taxes if the
Property Tax Reform Amendment
passes January 29. While Bogan
used as an example the city's
possible loss of a public safety
officer, commissioners quickly set
the record straight that cuts could
come is areas ther than public
safety.
Bogan said he had not meant to
suggest that the city would lose
police officers.
"This might just force us to live
within our budget," Commissioner
Gay said.


bles, cut flower production, fresh
water fish farming, hydroponics,
citrus, specialty hot peppers, herbs,

Retired generals to lead FSU forum on U.S. torture policy


A panel of retired military lead-
ers will gather at Florida State
University on Jan. 23 to discuss
U.S. interrogation policies and the
importance of the commander-in-
chief setting the highest standards
for the treatment of prisoners.
Lt. Gen. Harry E. Soyster, Maj.
Gen. Fred E. Haynes and Brig.
Gen. David R. Irvine will discuss
the importance of using interroga-
tion methods that are effective,
lawful and humane during a panel
discussion moderated by FSU
President Emeritus Talbot "Sandy"
D'Alemberte. The generals will
emphasize the need to ensure that
interrogation and prisoner treat-
ment policies enhance national
security, protect U.S. troops on
active duty and are consistent with
American laws, values and long-
term interests.
"Interrogation and Torture in
U.S. Military Policy: A Forum
with Retired U.S. Generals" will
be held from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Jan. 23 in the Broad Auditorium of
the Claude Pepper Center. The
event, which is free and open to the
public, is sponsored by the FSU
Center for the Advancement of
Human Rights and Human Rights
First, a nonpartisan international
human rights organization. This is
the second event in the Human
Rights and National Security in the
21st Century Lecture Series, spon-
sored by the Center for the
Advancement of Human Rights.
"It is a privilege for FSU to
welcome retired military leaders of
this stature to Florida," said Terry
Coonan, executive director of the
Center for the Advancement of
Human Rights. "Their positions on
human rights and national security
issues are uniquely credible given
both their combat experiences and
the military leadership posts in
which they have served for
decades. It is also a privilege for us
at Florida State University to co-
sponsor an event like this' with
Human Rights First -- a leading
U.S. voice for many years on
human rights events that impact
U.S. policy ahd the American pub-
lic."
The retired generals' appear-
ance at FSU is timed to precede the
Jan. 29 Florida primary election.
Among the issues to be addressed
will be the use and legality of
waterboarding -- a topic that con-


tinues to be prominent in the pres-
idential campaign -- and the
importance of the Geneva
Conventions to the U.S. military.

Anl Ugly


Divorce

Like an ember glowing under a pile of leaves, the
Missouri Compromise of 1820 lay smoldering
beneath the surface of American politics for
nearly forty years. Originally negotiated to break
a Congressional deadlock over Missouri's admis-
sion.to the Union, the agreement brought Maine
into the Union as a free state, while Missouri
entered as a slave state.
The compromise also provided that addi-
tional states entering the Union, if located north
of the Missouri border (36 degrees, 30 minutes
north), would be free states. Also, by establish-
ing different laws for different geographic
regions, the compromise introduced sectional-
ism to the Union. More than a generation later,
sectionalism and slavery would again rear their
ugly heads, ultimately ripping the country apart.
As the 1850's opened, Americans pressed


A House Divided:
America in the Age of Lincoln
Professor Eric Foner of Columbia University and
Olivia Mahoney of the Chicago Historical Society
combined their talents to develop this resource,
which is part of the Digital History project at the
University of Houston. It examines American
society during the antebellum period, the slavery
debate during the 1850's, and events during the
war that helped to shape our present society.

westward into the new territories. Northerners were
determined to keep slavery out of the new lands,
while southerners feared that abolition would ruin
their slave based agricultural economy.
In 1850, the passage of a Fugitive Slave Law
made it legal for escaped slaves to be arrested in free
states and sent back to their owners. Abolitionists
were outraged, and the Underground Railroad flour-
ished. Seven years later, the Supreme Court decided
the Dred Scott case, in which Scott, a slave, had sued
for his freedom. By a 7-2 margin, the Justices ruled
that black people were not American citizens and
therefore could not bring a case to court. They also
found the Missouri Compromise unconstitutional,
stating that the federal government had no authori-
ty to restrict slavery in any state.
The ember that had smoldered for thirty-
seven years now burst into flames. Slavery was legal.
Southerners rejoiced, while abolitionists were out-
raged. The country had been divided into two
opposing, but unarmed, camps.
Debates now raged across the country. In
1858, Stephen Douglas and Abraham Lincoln argued
the issue in a series of debates held in 'Illinois. The
following year,John Brown, and his band of followers
attacked Harper's Ferry in an aborted attempt to
trigger a slave uprising across the South. His attack
convinced southerners that the North was deter-
mined to see slavery abolished, regardless of the law.
At the Democratic Convention held in April
1860, delegates failed to agree upon a candidate for
that year's Presidential election. In June, the dele-
gates reconvened in Baltimore, but a dissident fac-
tion of southerners held a competing convention.
Both groups chose Presidential candidates, and each
insisted theirs was the real Democratic candidate.
As a result, Stephen Douglas and Vice-President
John Breckenridge both ran against Republican
Abraham Lincoln,

was considering had petroleum

went on to state that people in the
area used wells for drinking water
and whether the petroleum had
seeped into the ground was an
unknown factor that could affect
the health of the residents.
"It's a minor issue, the place he

this as a contaminated area forev-

until the reports have been com-
pleted," Bogan said after the
meeting.


Owenby was finished as he
questioned the amount of money
paid to the city attorney. He said
he requested a copy of the attor-
ney's contact as well as other
information including minutes of
meetings since 2002 but had yet
to have anyone comply with his
requests.
"The city attorney is being
over paid," Owenby said. He said
he felt that the attorney's $364
dollar per hour price tag was too
high.
"When you talk about the city
attorney, I want to clarify it. I
don't want you commenting that
this attorney or the next one is
trying to take anything from the
