Ala. murder




'by ALICE DU PONT
Timed Editor
Lapido "Chad" Bethea,
also known as "Chubs," of
Gretna, is the subject of a
manhunt in connection
with a murder in
Birmingham, Ala. on
January 13. Jim Corder of
the Gadsden County
Sheriffs office said Bethea
is sought after by a myriad Beth-
of law enforcement Bethea
agencies including the City
of Birmingham Police Department, Florida
Department of Law Enforcement, the U.S.
Marshall's Violent Fugitive Task Force and
GCSO.
"He is wanted on a first degree murder
warrant for shooting and killing a Alabama
man, 26-year-old Anthony Lett, after an
altercation stemming from an illegal car race
on the back streets in Birmingham," Corder
said.
Bethea is believed to be somewhere in the

Strong turnout at polls





Barack Obama wins easily in Gadsden

takes local


GOP


primary


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
A record number of registered voters
went to the polls early or took advantage
of casting absentee
ballots this year.
According to
Supervisor of
Elections Shirley
Green Knight, 2,187
voted early and
1,077 voted via
absentee ballot.
With 41.19
percent of the party- Obama
affiliated registered
voters casting ballots that was also a
record turnout for a presidential
preference. In 2004 fewer than 5,000
people voted.
While Hillary Clinton made a big
impact -:throughout the, state, Gadsden
County went overwhelmingly for Barack
Obama, who got 55.37 percent of the vote
with 5,287 votes. Clinton got 2,456 votes
or 25.72 percent and John Edwards
brought up the rear of the top three with
1,470 votes or 15.49 votes.
One woman who voted for Clinton said
she was confused went she went to the
polls. "I didn't know which of the two
candidates I ws going to vote for, but I
ended up voting for Hillary because I
believed she would not cut medicare or
medicaid antd that she has a plan to ease up
on taxes," said Polly. She also said she
voted no on the proposed constitutional

amendment.
"I voted for Barack
Obama because I
thought he was a
better choice," said
Peter Bell. A few feet
-'ay, the Rev, Tony'
Hannah exited ,the
polls after casting his
ballot for Clinton. u
"When you look at McCa
what she has to offer, where she has been
(in the Senate and as First Lady) and I
think she'll take us where we want to go,"
he said.
Another woman, Sylvia, said she
originally planned to vote for Clinton but
when she took up the pencil to cast her
vote, the pencil went to Obama. She had a
little more guidance when she voted no to
the proposed amendment.
"I really didn't know very much about


the amendment, but I got some literature
in the mail from my union and they
suggested that we vote 'no' so I followed
their advice," Sylvia said.
Henry had good things to say about all
of the top three Democrats but his vote
.went to Clinton. '"All three are fine people,
but I think she is the most qualified. I
think she will push for health care and I
think she can beat a Republic," he said.
But will the votes count? The
Democratic National Committee is
punishing Florida for moving its primary
election day up without the permission of
the DNC. Whether Florida's 210 delegates
will be allowed to be seated at the national
convention is ta decision for the DNC.
In the Republican Party, only 57 or half
of the delegates could be seated as of now.
The sanctions could be lifted if the party
petitions the Committee during the
convention.


City asks attorney for pay proposal


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
Whether or not Jack McLean will
remain the attorney for the City of
Quincy will be up to him. Last week,
at the close of a workshop that lasted
two days, commissioners asked
McLean to bring a contract back to
them before the February meeting
that they "could live with."
In effect, they want McLean
to give them a bottom line figure of
what he will accept as payment for
services. McLean, who works for the
law firm of Holland & Knight, was


billing the city $364 per hour.
Commissioners thought the was too
high.
Especially, according to
Commissioner Derrick Elias, when.
junior attorneys in the. firm were
doing some of the work and billing
the city.
McLean said that he was not
attempting to take anything 'from, the
city and that he wants people to
understand that he also has given
back to the city in out-of-pocket
donations. He said his regular billing
rate is $425 per hour and that he
actually gives the City a reduced rate.


McLean agreed to come back with a
proposal that commissioners will
either agree during the meeting or
workshop the proposal again.
Commissioner Elias said wants to see
McLean go back to a model of the
old contract.
That contract called for the attorney
to get a retainer and commissioners
would determine which cases they
were willing to pay an hourly rate for
his services.
McLean gave an indication of the
amount he will need to continue as
Quincy's attorney. He said the lowest
he can go is $60,000 annual retainer


and $200 per hour. He will discuss
the proposal with his law firm and
make his proposal in a timely
manner.
Elias and Commissioner Finely
Cook said they want McLean's
proposal to be specific. They want
him to spell out exactly what the city
can expect for its retainer and the
number of hours he will work for
Quincy.
McLean said that in .the past six
years he has only missed about three
meetings and that he has attended
most of the workshops and special
meetings.


Gadsden schools earn accreditation


By LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor
It's official Gadsden County
schools ;have earned
accreditation through the
Southern Association of
Colleges and Schools.
Gadsden County Schools
Superintendent Reginald James
said the award, which he
received last week, reflects a
countywide dedication to
education.
"It's the kind of award the
entire community has to take
pride in because the entire
community was involved," he


said. "It makes me very proud
that we were accredited."
During the yearlong process,
representatives from the SACS
accreditation council visited
Gadsden County to talk to area
residents, School Board
members, teachers, businessmen
and women and community
leaders to get a feel for what
was happening in the schools
and how the school system was
perceived.
For years, SACS studied each
school individually. Recently,
the organization gave school
districts the opportunity to have
each school evaluated during the


same visit, with the stipulation
that should one school be found
lacking, all schools would be
refused accreditation.
"We are very pleased," James
said. "It says to me they
recognize quality instruction is
taking place in our schools and
we provide it in a safe and
orderly manner."
The Florida SACS
accreditation council accredits
more than 1,800 elementary,
middle and secondary schools in
Florida, both public and
nonpublic.
The council. commended the
district for several of its


initiatives, including DLOPI
(Different Levels of Parental
Involvement) which uses five
steps to encourage parents to
become involved in their child's
education.
Council members also
commended the district's faith-
based partners program, its
clothes closet for needy students
and its parent notification
system.
Other district initiatives the
council commended include the
implementation. of school
uniforms for middle school
students and the continuous
improvement model.

Gadsden County area and
authorities are asking the public
to help them find Bethea.
Corder said he has a lengthy
criminal record involving
violence and drug crimes and
should be considered armed and
dangerous. Authorities are
urging anyone who has any
influence with Bethea to have
him surrender.
The murder warrant for Bethea
was issued by the Birmingham
Police Department after
witnesses said he gunned down
Lett, who helped organize the
illegal street racing, in a dispute
over a racing purse of at least
$10,000 and maybe as much as
$20,000. Investigators said Lett,
of Huntsville, Ala., was holding
the purse, which was put up by
drivers and supporters, when
one of two drag- racing vehicles
went out of control and killed
Lonnie King, 29, of
Birmingham, who was video
taping the race in the Pratt City
Community near Birmingham.
Birmingham homicide Sgt.
Cory Hardiman said a dispute
started after the accident
between Lett and Bethea over
the purse and it was during that
dispute that Lett was shot and
killed.
The two race drivers were
charged with the death of King,
who was struck by one of two
Ford Mustangs after it lost
control. Arrested were Brian
Murphy, 27, of Elkmont, TN
and Yardley Potter, 32, or
Vernon, FL. Homicide Det.


Jerry Williams said Bethea was
part of the Florida group that
came to town to watch the race
and support Potter.
Williams said the race was
scheduled to have taken place
on January 12, but was
postponed because the Florida
car was having trouble.
Williams said they were able to
link the shooting to Bethea
through confidential informants
and witnesses.
"The charge is capital murder
because Bethea," Williams said,
"pointed a gun at the victim and
demanded the money. No other
charges are expected to be filed
in the case."
Anyone with information on
Bethea's location should
immediately notify the GCSO at
850-875-8825, Crime Stoppers
(574-TIPS), their local law


enforcement agency, or 9-1-1. contact with Bethea; just be a
"We're asking that anyone with good witness and make the
information not attempt to make call," Corder said.

Sub Prime Lending Struggles Create




HUGE Savings for Car Buyers



As Little as a $99/month *

Sneads, FL National news agencies have been reporting for weeks about the latest stock market troubles and its ties to the failing sub
prime lending market. This has created a huge supply of vehicles due to recent repossessions and the many trade-ins generated due to
downsizing car payments.

In many cases, this inventory is acquired at thousands below book value. Banks and lenders are highly motivated to liquidate this inventory
and Executive Cars, Inc. is passing this savings on to the general public at their Sneads Tent Sale.

"The situation in the sub prime banking sector is serious. Home and car loans are defaulting at an alarming rate, and although this is
unfortunate, it has created a MASSIVE savings opportunity for all prospective car buyers"

Every vehicle in inventory will be clearly marked with its drastically lowered price or payment. Bank representatives will be available to as-
sist all buyers during this very special event. Even those buyers whose credit may have been damaged in the past will have an opportunity
to take advantage of this incredible market condition. A stable job and residence is all that is required to begin process of any transaction.

"I have never seen anything like this. With rising gas prices and a sluggish economy, a great many vehicles have been traded to reduce
payments and unfortunately others have.simply been returned to the lender" David Ray Event Manager

Sale begins Tuesday, January 29th and ends Sunday, February 3rd. Payments as low as $99/month* will be made available during this
limited event.

"We have contacted all our lenders and requested they extend their operating hours to assist in this incredible event Millions of dollars
have been made available for immediate loan processing."


The Sneads Tent Sale will be fully staffed during the event hours as attendance is ,.
expected to be in record breaking numbers. As with most special sales, the selection .
will diminis'- throughout the event so come early to take full advantage of the entire Sneads
inventory available., p. 8030 Hwy. 90

Contemplation



The return of the utility monster


Just when I thought it was safe to open
my utility bill, it smacked me again. To the
tune of $332 this month. It gets tougher
and tougher, but what choice do I, or any
of us, have?
I made another attempt to find out what
the deal is with my bill since my
consumption is down. I have definitely
been watching my usage of gas and
electricity and have been extra
conservative. One change I made from last
year I decided to use heat again.
This is what I was told when I went to
make my payment. I hope that the
explanation, which seems plausible, will
make this bitter (and expensive) pill easier
to swallow.
Remember when we were told that the
meter readers were at fault because they
couldn't find any reliable readers? I'm
happy they got that problem solved. Then
it was malfunctioning equipment. That too
has been solved. Hip-hip-hurray. The good
news is that nothing is our fault anymore.
Anyway, here's the explanation for this
month's higher bills: The fuel adjustment
rate has gone up steadily since September.


In September, it was .0300; October,
.0310; November, .0330; and December
.0352. The consumer pays that cost. The
charge is assigned when the electricity
goes up and down according to the price of
a barrel of oil.
Our bills were also higher, it seems,
because Progress Energy decided to
change its billing date and now (this month
only) has a charge for 40 days.
On the side of gas prices, the same thing
has happened. The gas rates, per cubic
foot, went this way: Dec./Nov. 1.417 per
100 cf; Sept./Oct. 1.382cf. All this is based
on the stock market, I was told, and comes
from the Municipal Gas Authority of
Georgia, the source of our gas supply.
Well, I certainly feel better. ,
Now I'm waiting until next month when I
will hold my breath and close my eyes
while I open that bill. It is my sincere wish
that Progress 'Energy and The Municipal
Gas Authority of Georgia will have mercy
on us.
The monster is back and has crept up on
me again. I did the wrong thing I let my
guard down. Silly me.


Is anybody else growing weary of the
presidential campaigns.....or is it just me?
I've already seen enough t.v. debates, name
calling, finger pointing, baby kissing, feeble
political jokes (with less than subtle jabs) and
questioning of each other's votes on the
Senate floor to last a lifetime. If the vote was
that "wrong", then why didn't they speak up
back in 2003?
If CBS preempts NCIS to show some
political rally in Bozeman, Montana, I'm
really going to be hacked off!
And listen, folks, this is only January! I
don't believe my eyes and ears can stand
another ten months of this! You need a
scorecard to keep up with the multitude
running for the job! Larry King can't
interview'em all between now and the
election. The Fifth Army stormed the beaches
at Anzio with less people......
One half of'em is saying we need complete
overhaul and change in Washington. The
other half is saying it takes experience and
knowledge of the system to "steady" the ship.
Of course, each and every one of them is
touting him, or her self to be the only one that
can lead us out of the muck. I ain't seen so
much chest beating since Tarzan whipped
those two lions that were about to force Jane
over the escarpment.
And we've got to pick a winner out of this
group.
Mr. Ferdell Haskins used to sit upon the
front porch of Woodrow Kennon's
Mercantile, Dry Goods and Grocery Store
back when Dwight David Eisenhower was
president and say, "You can't trust them
Republicans."

South, way back in the cane break Democrat
that wasn't going to let Ike's war record ease
him through the presidency. Mr. Ferdell
didn't like the way our foreign policy was
going. "We gave them Russians too much at
Geneva!" We all nodded in agreement but to
tell you the truth I'd never heard of Geneva. I
figured it was a place close to Berlin that we
let Stalin have after the war.
Mr. Ferdell would roll him a smoke and
launch in on the falling hog prices. 'Course,
that too was Eisenhower's fault. For us the
domestic policy had nothing to do with
importing Volkswagens or the price of the
dollar versus the yen. We just wanted to sell a
few hogs for a little more than we had in
them. Mr. Ferdell allowed that the hog buyers
from Memphis got to set the price because the
President owed them some "political favors".
We nodded again in agreement, but in my
little ten year old mind I questioned that Mr.
Eisenhower even knew anybody in Memphis!
The first presidential race that I remember
boiled down to John F. Kennedy and Richard
Nixon in 1960. They had two man debates;
which was a lot easier to keep up with than
Cox's Army waving their arms and vying for
speaking time. And you notice how today the
candidates smile and grin their way through
the sparing sessions. They have all watched


the same Richard Nixon debate training tapes!
I was thirteen years old and was more
interested in junior high baseball and Mary
Hadley Hayden than who was going to run
the country for the next four years. The talk
up on Woodrow's front porch wasn't about
career records or jobs or which man was best
suited to "take the reins". Most of the
discussion was about religion, and age. John
Kennedy was a Catholic. For some reason
many grown-ups, and some political annalists,
thought this a great flaw in his ability to be
president, or more to the point, to get elected
president. And this question wasn't just an
issue in the south. Walter Cronkite discussed
it almost nightly on the evening news.
Mr. Kennedy was 43. I personally didn't see
any age problem at all. Shucks, 43 seemed
ancient to me! Stan Musial was three years
younger and rumors were swirling about his
retirement from baseball. One was said to be
too young, the other was too old. Stuff like
that keeps me up at night!
I listen to the campaign "issues" today and
they seem to be light years beyond age and
religious beliefs. I hope that we haven't
"advanced" so much'that neither of them is
even worthy of discussion anymore.....
John Kennedy was elected and I didn't hear
another word about religion or age. The
country didn't miss a beat as an older
Republican "went out" and a young Democrat
"came in". I hope that "ask not what your
country can do for you" declaration Kennedy
made in his inaugural address is as relevant
now as it was January 20, 1961. We need
candidates today to stop talking about George
Washington and Abraham Lincoln.....and
start governing like them!
'Course, we all got an earful from Mr.
Ferdell, "You can't trust them Democrats!"
He was a little upset with the situation down
in Cuba but mostly he didn't like that
minimum wage talk. "Jeb and Leroy ain't
worth what I'm paying'em now!" He shook
his head and allowed he'd go under if he had
to pay them any more. He swore it was a
government conspiracy aimed to run small
pig farmers out of business. History didn't
record it, but I think Jeb and Leroy might
have viewed it a little differently.
Thanks to Mr. Haskins and other such
politically astute patrons I realized early in life
that picking a president was a risky business
at best. And campaign promises come easy,
keeping them prove to be a little harder. It
doesn't matter whether you glow with youth
and enthusiasm or exude age, wisdom and
experience. It's not a matter of your voting
record or your take on international affairs.
We need someone with the heart for the job.
And a little less "self' interest and a little
more "us" interest.
And we need to shy away from any of them
that might have ties to the pig mafia in
Memphis.....

Respectfully,

Is it Spring yet?


There is, of course, an official
Punxsutawney Phil Club, as well there
should be because if you can enunciate
that name you ought to get a coffee
mug or at the very least an invitation
to the Thursday morning Hooked on
Phonics meeting.
That's right Friday is Groundhog
Day, on which the entire nation waits
with baited breath for THE official
forecast from a rat-toothed, roly-poly
rodent. Only in America.
You know the drill groundhog
emerges from the ground, takes a look
around and makes a meteorological
assessment. If he sees his shadow, six
more weeks of winter. If he doesn't,
early spring.
Like we care, seeing as how we have
two-and-a-half seasons here in North
Florida: Hot, hotter and not.
But anyway. In case you forgot to
buy a Farmer's Almanac this year I
have googled Groundhog Day trivia,
with which you can win friends and
influence people or at least convince a
5-year-old you're a regular rocket
scientist.
That's my plan and I'm sticking to it.
So here it is, fresh from the
Punxsutawney Phil Club website:
On Feb. 2, Phil comes out of his
burrow on Gobbler's Knob in front of
thousands of followers from all over
the world to'predict the weather for
the rest of winter.
L ., ', I


* This tidbit is not from that website
but just a fact I know you will want to
know: Punxsutawney is the name of a
borough in Pennsylvania. Yes, a
borough. Why,, I have no idea. Alaska
has boroughs. So does Connecticut,
Minnesota, New Jersey, New York,
Pennsylvania and Virginia. Southern
states, not so much. But we'll bring
you food if there's six more weeks of
winter. Or an early spring. Or you get
married. Or divorced. Or sick. Or well.
Punxsutawney held its first
Groundhog Day in the 1800s. The first
official trek to Gobbler's Knob was
made on Feb. 2, 1887.
Approximately 90 percent of the
time, Phil sees his shadow.
A select group called the Inner
Circle plans the annual Groundhog
Day ceremony in Punxsutawney.
Members of the Inner Circle are
recognizable by their top hats and
tuxedos. Which, if you think about it,
would be more appropriate were Phil a
penguin, but he's not, so ...
Fans claim this Phil is the same
Phil that stuck his snout out of a
burrow in 1887. Not likely, since
groundhogs only live up to 10 years,
but then again, maybe he has the same
surgeon as Dick Cheney. Or the bionic
man. (We can rebuild him. Make, him
herbivorier ... furrier ...
woodchuckier.)
Have a happy Groundhog Day.

On patent

reform,

don't be

evil

By Sally C. Pipes

Google has achieved wild success
and-cultural notoriety by operating,
under the corporate mantra "Don't
be evil." But when it comes to patent
reforms currently under
consideration in Congress, Google --
along with several other tech
heavyweights -- seems to be straying
from the company line.
The Patent Reform Act, while
purporting to bring efficiency and
flexibility to the patent system,
would actually water down existing
patent protections. This may be
good for a few large technology
firms, whose products incorporate
hundreds or even thousands of
patented components. But it will
inflict serious harm on small
entrepreneurs and research-based
health sciences firms, whose
livelihoods depend on marketing
just a handful of lifesaving
inventions.
The tech industry's support for
patent reform makes sense, as these
companies are increasingly targeted
by unscrupulous patent-traders who
file suit in plaintiff-friendly districts
to extort large settlements. By
claiming rights --sometimes
dubiously -- to just a small portion
of a finished product, the
manufacture of a larger creation can
come to a screeching halt. The
proposed legislation would
streamline the legal process when
these cases are challenged.
But the costs to biotech and
pharmaceutical companies are far
greater than any efficiencies created
by leaner patent litigation.
Patent protection provides the
security that chemists and other, -
-scientists need to undeitakliehe"'
labor-,and time-intensiv& resea ithd t'
. the cotesof drugproduction.- I
Patents last between 17-20 years,
but the average drug takes about 13
years and $800 million to bring to
market. So once a drug hits the
shelves, there's only 4-7 years to
recoup hundreds of millions of
dollars in evelopment costs. That's
why firms and investors demand the
sales exclusivity that a patent
guarantees.
Moreover, only about one out of
every three drugs is ever profitable.
The rest are financial misfires whose
losses must be recovered via the
success of a handful of blockbuster
drugs.
It's curious that Congress would
favor faster software evelopment
over new medicines.
Further, it's not just the
pharmaceutical and biotech
industries that are threatened by this
legislation. For small firms and
individual inventors, patents provide
the protection to create, develop, and
profit from their inventions. In fact,
small tech companies are the drivers
of much innovation, and currently
hold about a third of all patents
registered.
The proposed changes to the
current legal protections would
make it much harder for smaller
firms to defend a patent claim. Large
tech companies-- with their big
budgets and seasoned legal teams -
would therefore enjoy an enormous
advantage.
What's more, the proposed
measure comes with a large price
tag. The Congressional Budget
Office estimates that it will cost
more than $131 million per year to
comply with the changes to today's
patent system. Big companies can
afford this; smaller ones can't.
The proposed reforms also place
limits on compensation for patent
infringement.
Such terms allow those with deep
pockets to buy their way out of legal
woes. While this change might
make lawsuits more manageable for
the tech industry, it would drastically
undervalue the worth of individual
patents on products like
pharmaceuticals, where each
patented compound can cost
millions of dollars to develop.
All innovators could benefit if
Congress considered meaningful
reforms which strengthen, not
weaken patent protections. A strong
patent system enables the research
and creativity that have produced
everytiuug from the paper
clip to asthma medication. When
considering changes to our current
patent system, Congress should give
a nod to Google's mantra and "do no

Bryant pleads guilty to murder, sentenced to 20 years


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

A Quincy man, Robert
Deion Bryant, pleaded guilty
in circuit court Monday to
first-degree murder charges
and was sentenced to 20 years


in the Department of
Corrections followed by five
years probation.
Bryant, then 18, was
charged in the shooting death
of Cedrick "Two Head" Parks,
then 20, in late October of
2006 in a parking lot at


Parkview Gardens Apartments
on Atlanta Street west of
Quincy.
Shortly after the shooting,
Bryant called Sheriff Morris
Young and said he wanted "to
talk." Young encouraged him
to turn himself in at the.


Gadsden County Sheriffs
Office.
He confessed to shooting
Parks until all of the bullets
had been fired from the hand-
gun.
Bryant told authorities that
he had been threatened by


Parks and that he was making
every attempt to stay away
from him. Bryant and a com-
panion were leaving Parkview
Gardens Apartments when he
noticed Parks' vehicle was
parked in the apartment park-
ing lot.


According to a report filed
with the Gadsden County
Sheriffs Office days after the
shooting, Bryant said fired on
Parks only after he saw Parks
attempting to draw his gun.
However, no evidence of a gun
were found by authorities.


County renews contract with federal lobbying firm


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

The Board of County
Commissioner heard from the
federal lobbying firm that is
hired to help the county navi-
gate the processes in the
nation's capital. They were so
pleased with the results they
voted unanimously to renew
the contract for another year.


Kareem Murphy, a partner
in the Fergerson Group, LLC,
and the firm's CEO Bill
Fergerson came to make a
report in person Tuesday night.
The firm lobbies Congress
and the federal agencies in
behalf of public and private
interests acosss the country.
The Fergerson Grpup is the
largest federal representative
of local governments in


Washington, DC. While the
intent was to update commis-
sioners on their progress in
Washington, they also asked
that their professional services
contract also be renewed.
"The fee'to be paid to the
contractor under this renewed
Professional Services
Agreement is $49,800 with
monthly payments of $4,150
beginning in February," said


County Manager Marlon
Brown in a memo to the Board
of County Commissioners.
The lobbyists' role, accord-
ing to Brown, is to educate,
advise, and provide direction
to the Board and staff as it
related to federal legislative
issues and community projects
that affect Gadsden County.
- The firm worked mainly on
three projects on behalf of the
county last year. They were:
1. Repairs and Renovations
at Gadsden Community
Hospital. The amount request-
ed was $3 milion dollars. The
funding source was the
Department of Labor, the
Department of Health and
Human Services and
Education Appropriations,
HHS, Health Resources and
Services account. Final result:
The final bill did not include
funding for this progect.
2. Water and Sewer
Upgrade. Amount requested:
$3.3 million dollars. Funding
source was Agriculture
Appropriations, Rural
Community Community


Advancement program, Rural
Utilities Service, and Interior
Appropriations, EPA, State
and Tribal Assistance Grants.
Final Results: The bill includes
the "soft earmark" included in
the originalSenate version of
the bill. The final bill did not
include project funding under
the RPA title.
3.Countywide Bridge
Repairs. Amount requested:
$1.75 million dollars. Funding
Source: Transportation
Appropriations, Surface
Transportation Progam (STP)
or Transportation, Community
and Systems Preservation
(TCSP). The final result was
that the final bill did not
include funding for this proj-
ect.
In other matters, the Board
is also encouraging citizens to
take advantage of the free pre-
scription discount card.
The cards, which will save
citizens up to as much as 20
percent on prescription drugs,
are available regardless of
income.
It's easy; all the individual


needs to do is present the card,
provided in a joint effort of the
couty government and the
National Association of
Counties at a praticipating
retail pharmacy and save and
average of 20 % on prescrip-
tion medicine. Finding a
phamacy is also easy since 9
out of 10 pharmacies nation-
wide accept this card. No
enrollment form, no member-
ship fee, one card, immediate
use.
The are no limits, the card is
good for individuals and fami-
lies and the card can be used
anytime the preescription is
not covered ny insurance.
There are no restictions and no
limits on the number of time
the card may be used.

they're looking for businesses to get
their share of the money.
"The program is called the
Construction Management
Program and Bond Guarantee
Program and the intent is to ensure
that qualified applicants have the
opportunity to bid, win, and per-
form successfully statewide on
Department of Transportation con-
tracts," said Michael Taylor, train-
ing coordinator of the program.
He said the program not only
helps business owners access the
process, they stay with them from
beginning to end. This voluntary
program is offerd to provide the
comprehensive training necessary
for businesses to expand through
training.
Taylor and Robert Nixon,
regional director for the program,
say they are ready to expand now.
into Gadsden County. While a cou-
ple of businesses in the county have
been a part of the program there are
many more the two feel can bene-
fit.
"North Florida Vault and Evans
Construction are two of he busi-
nesses from Gadsden County that
have been through the program.
Those businesses have increased
their potential and expanded,"
Nixon said.
While landing contracts for
FDOT projects may seen daunting
to some small businesses, Nixon
said there are many areas in which
these businesses can qualify.
"A person with a lawn service
could land a contract clearing the
rights of way or mowing along
state roadways. Once they learn
what to do they can access other
state agencies and federal agencies
because through our program they
have the knowledge. Through this
program we help them compete for
jobs," Nixon said.
But winning the contract is the
easy part according to Taylor.
That's when FAMU steps in and
makes sure they meet deadlines,
keep an acceptable quality of work,
amd keep up with the paper work
as well as meet deadlines.
"FAMU is committed to small
businesses," Taylor said.
To become eligible for the pro-
gram, and Taylor and Nixon can
assist, the following criteria must
be met:
*A firm certified as a
Disadvantaged Business Enterprise
(DBE) with the Florida
Department of Transportation.
*A firm who meets the Small
Business Enterprise (SBE)
qualaification standards of the
Small Business Administration.
*A firm whose annual gross

verse of the weekz:
And a very great multitude spread their garments in the way: others cut down branches
from trees, and strawed them in the way. Matthew 21:8 (KJV)

The word about Jesus was being
spread from town to town. The
Jewish people believed that Jesus
was the Messiah they were looking
for.
As Jesus was riding through
town fulfilling prophesy people
began taking their garments off and
others putting branches on the
ground crying "Hosanna to the son
of David: Blessed is he that cometh
in the name of the Lord, Hosanna in
the highest." Those people that day
in the crowd recognized who Jesus
was.

consecutive year surpluses.
Already, projects for the
upcoming year are underway,
including the start of the
process to revise the county?TNIs
comprehensive plan and land
development code,
and construction on the water and
sewer system for the development
for a new restaurant, hotel and
possibly a bowling alley on U.S.
Hwy 90 west of Quincy. There are
plans to continue the affordable
housing and rehabilitation program.
To better serve citizens, county
commissioners have planned to
better equip Emergency Medical
Service personnel and other
employees with more rugged tate-
of-the-art computers that can
withstand weather and often rough
working conditions. There are also
plans to form a Solid Waste
Citizens Advisory Committee.


Commissioners say they need input
from residents to help them come
up with viable solutions to dealing
with household waste, recyclables,
and household hazardous materials
in the county.
"If we come up with a way to deal
with our garbage, we'll know the
next steps to take toward
developing a better recycling
program," said County
Commission Chairman Edward J.
Dixon.
Along with the construction of a
public safety complex in the city of
Gretna, expansion of courtroom
facilities, renovations to the jail,
improvements to county bridges,
road paving and maintenance,
commissioners say they are also
continuing renovations of the
county's parks. Like St. John Park
this past year, Robertsville will also
get new pavilions, walking trails,


resurfaced basketball courts, state-
of-the-art playground equipment,
picnic tables and park benches.
The county is even going one step
farther this year, deciding to build
its first baseball and volleyball
recreational facility at Sawdust
Park.
"We can't just stay where we are,"
said Dixon. "We have to constantly
be about improving the quality of
life for our citizens. We recognize
change isn't always easy, but it is
necessary. We don't want to fall
away from the accomplishments
that earned us the County of the
Year award. In fact, we want to
earn the distinction again and that
will only happen if we stay focused
on our priorities."
One of the ways the commission,
along with the Tourist Development
Council, is doing that is by kicking
off a year-long advertising


campaign that keeps Gadsden
County on the minds of those who
drive along the highways.
"We're trying to create an identity
that focuses on the beauty and
amenities of Gadsden County" said
county manager Marlon Brown.
The campaign, which includes a
series of billboard placements at
Interstate 10 and on U.S. Hwy 27,
will help promote tourist
development with a theme
beckoning tourists to Stop, Stay and
Relax.
"We have a lot to be proud of
about Gadsden County, so why not
let the world in on what we already
know," said Brown. "This
campaign invites them in and asks
them to stop for awhile, stay with us
and kick their shoes off and relax.
If they do it once, we know they"ll
be back bringing their friends with
them too."


A county doesn't get awarded
County of .the Year if it isn't
progressing and Gadsden County,
which earned ,the distinction in
2006 from the United States
Department of Agriculture / Rural
Development, is continuing in that
progression mode. The list of
priorities and projects slated for
2008 is evidence of that.
As the county continues to deal
with the challenge of shrinking
property tax revenues and work on
obtaining proper Medicare and
Medicaid pay reimbursement rates,
or critical access, from the federal
government for the Gadsden
County Hospital, it also celebrates
coming off of a successful year that
saw the county deliver continued
enhanced services, open several
new facilities and maintain more
than $3 million in its general fund
account.
The $3 million is a result of

By LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor

Carter-Parramore Academy's
first Future Business Leaders of
America chapter took home a
first-place price in November.
Eight Carter-Parramore FBLA
members went to the Florida
Agricultural and Mechanical
University Nov. 27 for a fall
FBLA rally. The group took home
first place in the district for its
nametag design.
, "They put them to work as
spon as they got there," said
Faybrena Walker, FBLA sponsor
at Carter-Parramore.
Walker, who teaches business
courses and intensive reading at
Carter-Parramore, said the organi-
zation is invaluable in helping stu-
dents learn the skills they need in
the business world.
"They had to participate in dif-
ferent business events, and they
have to wear professional attire,"
she said of the rally. "They partic-
ipate in a number of competitive


events."
Around 15 schools participat-
ed in the event, which featured
mini workshops, quest-and-
answer sessions and games.
"A special thanks goes to
Esther Calvry and Michael
McLeroy for representing Carter-
Parramore Academy with excel-
lence and who worked very hard
at the district rally to help make
everything go smoothly," Walker
said.
District FBLA members unan-
imously voted Carter-Parramore's
Precious Chambers as district sec-
' retary; other Carter-Parramore
participants were Ashley Russ,
Shandricka Holloman, Shamika
Brown and Jeffery Bridges.

The organization helps mem-
bers to develop leadership skills
and succeed in the world of busi-
ness through educational activi-
ties that increase knowledge in
accounting, entrepreneurship,
communications and other busi-
ness-related fields, Walker said.
According to Walker, FBLA
members begin at the lowest level
and, after mastering all the neces-
sary levels, they rise to the busi-
ness level. By mastering each
level, members become another
step closer to the top, the America
level of recognition. Members are
looking forward to attending the
district competition in February as
well as the state level of competi-
tion in Orlando April 25.
Walker said the group needs
financial support to be able to
continue to participate in FBLA
competitions. For more informa-

West Gadsden gets huge win over NFC

The West Gadsden Lady Panthers basketball team won two
games and lost one last week to end their regular season with a 14-
10 record. The team was led in all three games by senior scoring
machine, Tyeshia Battles, the Big Bend's leading scorer and one of
the top scorers in the state.
Coach Don White's team defeated a visiting Marianna team 56-
51. Battles scored 40 of her team's 56 points. Fifteen of those
points were from the three point line. Freshman teammate Kayla
Streeter added ten points and Jasmine Charleston pulled down ten
rebounds. Streeter also had four steals.
On Thursday night the team got a huge win defeating a top ten
team 65-58. The Panthers were down 34-27 in a high scoring first
half and were still down at the end of the third quarter, but poured it
on the fourth quarter scoring 27 points in the period. Tyeshia Battles
was one point short of a half century for the second time this sea-
son. The senior guard hit for 49 points and also pulled down eleven
rebounds. The loss was only NFCa?TMs 4th of the season. West
Gadsden moved to 14-9 on the season with one big game against
East Gadsden remaining.
East Gadsden's Jasmine Grice hit for 35 points as her team ran
away from West Gadsden 75-37. West Gadsden actually outscored
East Gadsden 17-9 in the first quarter and were tied at the half 30-
30 after the Jaguars scored 21 points in the second quarter. The sec-
ond half was a different story, altogether. West Gadsden scored 7
points over the next two quarters while' East Gadsden continued to
pour it on scoring 19 in the third and 26 in the fourth. Audrey
Unanka scored 12 points for the Jags.
.Tyeshia Battles scored 25 points for West Gadsden. East
,Gadsden finished their regular season 19-3.

Lady Cats split in final week

The Munroe Lady Cats found themselves down 18-12 at the half.
against Maclay. Coach Christy Ulrich, a former coach at Maclay,
then called for a 3rd quarter press a?? the same press that staged an
upset win over Aucilla the week before. The press worked again
and the Lady Cats outscored Maclay 13-4 in that quarter. The fourth
quarter was not so effective. Maclay outscored Munroe 17-9 for a
39-34 win. Crystal Wade led Munroe with 12 points and Anna
Dooner added eleven.
Friday night the team handed Grace Christian a 59-35 drumming
before a homecoming crowd of around 400. It was also the last
home game for the Lady Cats and seniors Crystal Wade and Malorie
McKinnon. Anna Dooner led all players with 17 points. Wade
added a double-double of 13 points and 11 rebounds. Ivie Thomas
added seven rebounds. Kristen Allen dished out five assists and

them just right, she shot 2 of them,
killing one and wounding
anoth3er. She held the rest at gun
point until the militia got there.
They wanted to take them out and
shoot them., She sed, "No they are
going to be hung, shooting is too
good for them." So they were
taken out and hanged including
the wounded one. While they
swung on they're ropes, she sang
"Yankee Doodle". Just a bit of
history.

Antique evaluations draw crowd in Havana


By LESLIE ROBERTS

Penney Owens paid $5 for an
English spyglass she bought at a
yard sale.
She was happy to learn the
antique is actually worth $500-
$600.
Owens, of Havana, was one
Of around 300 who turned out
Saturday and Sunday to have an
antique valued by Kevin
Zavian, an appraiser for the
L


PBS series "Antiques
Roadshow."
"This was great," said
Owen's friend Sue Poppell of
Quincy. "I am tickled pink. He
is so nice."
Folks from around the region
brought clocks, watches, jewel-
ry and art to Havana Saturday
and Sunday to have them
appraised. Zavian studied hun-
dreds of antiques Saturday at
the Antiques and Design Center
in Havana, while local gallery


owner Andrew Tatler-Burges
examined art and antique books
and maps next door at Kellum's
Fine Furniture.
"It's a gorgeous, gorgeous
piece of art," Tatler-Burges told
Caroline and Yancey Sutton of
Tallahassee. "Don't let anybody
screw it up."
The couple brought an 1861
painting of Sir. Walter Raleigh
to be appraised. The piece had
been in Mrs. Sutton's grand-
mother's attic.

Facility in Gretna. The corpora-

"Twenty five years ago, our
co-founders had a vision to cre-

one that would provide respon-
sible management solutions to
federal state and local governe-
ments. We are proud to say that
the vision has come to fruition.
CCA has experienced tremen-
dous growth, successfully
entering into partnerships that
make us 65 facilities strong.
And the ongoing support of

this milestone cannot be overat-

with the community the citizens
have, by extension, become part

to explore ways to best serve

The theme for last week's
celebration at Gadsden
Correctional facility was "Ain't

and several inmates gave mov-
ing testimonies about their stay
at the facility during a luncheon
for staff and community part-

one had ever said please or
thank you to me," she said.
Another woman said that
three years ago she would have
never imagined that she would
be locked behind bars. But,
according to her, making bad
decisions resulted in her land-
ing at Gadsden Correctional
Facility. She has taken that neg-
ative situation and turned it into
a positive one while at GCF.
The young woman is part of the
canine training program which
takes animals and trains them to
help people with various physi-
cal and mental challenges. She
said the program has helped her
to help others even in her unfor-
