billboards

by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
County Commissioners approved a
marketing plan Tuesday night during
the regular meeting of the Board of
County Commissioners inviting
tourists to "Stop, Stay & Relax" in
Gadsden County. The bill boards,
county officials say, will hopefully
give the county an economic shot in
the arm. The Tourist Development
Council asked for and got approval to
sign the contract to get the plan
moving forward.


Last year the commission voted to
restructure the TDC to look for, and
fund, ways to attract visitors. The
money to pay for the marketing plan
and implementation comes from the
local bed tax.
In August of last year, the TDC
voted market the county through an
outdoor billboard campaign that would
attract tourist to stop for an overnight
stay in the county. The two billboards,
which will be up for 12 months, will
cost $14.715.
In other matters, commissioners

_ Local author's book on state's reading list


By LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor
When Gadsden County students
check out the Just Read, Florida!
recommended reading list for Black
History Month, they'll find among
the suggested books one written by
Gretna Elementary reading coach
Betty James.
After finding out Monday
morning reviewers for the state
Department of Education's Just
Read, Florida! Program chose her
book, James said she was humbled
by the experience.
"My primary purpose for writing
the book was to inspire others,
particularly children, so to see it on
the list means others have read it
and been inspired enough by it to
put it on the list," she said.
James' biographical account of
Quincy native Dean Mitchell and
his struggle to achieve his dream of


'My primary purpose for writing the book was
to inspire others, particularly children, so to see
it on the list means others have read it and been
inspired enough by it to put it on the list.'
Author Betty James


becoming an artist was published
last year by Father & Sons
Publishing of Tallahassee.
James, a long-time educator and
wife of Gadsden County Schools
Superintendent Reginald James,
said she hopes the book will serve
as encouragement for children and
adults alike.
Mitchell grew up in Quincy,
raised by his grandmother while his
mother went to college and later, to
work up North. He went to work in
the tobacco fields when he was 8.
He developed an interest in
painting at an early age and pursued


that hobby in the face of poverty
and several relatives who tried to
dissuade him.
He went on to study art at the
Columbus School of Art
and Design in Ohio, and has since
won more than 200 major art
awards, including first prize at
London, England's T.H. Saunders
International Artist and
Watercolour Show, top honors
from the National Watercolor
Society, the Art for the Parks
Medal for Overall Excellence and
the Hubbard Art Award for
Excellence.


While his success didn't come
without its share of ups and downs,
James says she was drawn to
Mitchell's story because of his
undefeatable attitude.
The book is illustrated by Eluster
Richardson, president of the
Tallahassee Watercolor Society.
According to the Florida DOE
website, Just Read, Florida! was
launched in 2001 with the aim of
creating a student population that
reads at or above grade level by the
year 2012.
The program stresses the
importance of phonemic
awareness, phonetics, fluency,
vocabulary and comprehension.

She was in Gadsden County as
part of the department's national
"A Healthy Baby Begins With
You" campaign, which took her to
a summit on black infant mortality
at Florida Agricultural and
Mechanical University Saturday.
This event was designed to
stimulate awareness of the local
and national resources available to
mothers and children to reduce
infant deaths in the African
American community. The national
infant mortality rate is defined as
deaths per 1,000 live births among
infants up to the age of one year.
Among the African American
babies, the rate is 13 per 1,000 live
births, which is more than twice the
rate of the U.S. population as a
whole.
"This campaign is part of a
broader national effort that OMH
has introduced to combat health
disparities in all communities," said
Garth Graham, MD, deputy
assistant secretary for the federal
Office of Minority Health. "We are
pleased with the involvement of
our local partners as we work to
improve the health of all
Americans."
In Gadsden County, the black
infant mortality rate has gone up
and down for the last decade, from
28.6 deaths per 1,000 live births in
1999 to 13 deaths per 1,000 in
2006.

welfare of Gadsden's patients."
There was no ob/gyn in the
county until a few months ago,
when state Office of Minority
Health Director Emile Commedore
offered to see patients at the
Gadsden County Health
Department on Fridays.
"I'm here on Fridays because I
love prenatal care," he said. "When
I found out there was no ob/gyn in
Gadsden County, I said, 'This is the
place.'"
According to federal Office of
Minority Health statistics taken
from a 2004 report by the Centers
for Disease Control, the top three
causes for black infant mortality in
2004 were low birthweight,
congenital malformations and
Sudden Infant Death Syndrome
(SIDS).
Add to that pre-existing
conditions black women suffer at
higher rates than white women -
diabetes, hypertension, heart
disease and stroke and the risk of
pre-term birth skyrockets.
The county's low literacy levels,
high poverty rate and funding cuts
to its transportation disadvantaged
provider combine to limit access to
medical providers.
County and state health officials
and other community leaders began
several years ago putting together a
community-wide coalition to
address healthcare disparities in
Gadsden County, pushing for the
establishment of the Gadsden
Community Health Council Inc.
The Florida Department of Health

James A. Shanks class of
1974 will be having a class


Health to conduct a comprehensive
needs assessment based on the
existing health disparities and
health services needed in Gadsden
County. The Gadsden Community
Health Council's primary goal, in
turn, was to address the issues
identified and to work toward
bringing together local, state and
federal partners to address and
attempt to resolve issues
identified by the assessment.
Cooperative organizations
include the Mother Care Network
and the Center for Health Equity in
Gadsden.
Those assembled at Friday's
press conference urged women to
practice healthy habits long before
conceiving.
"If you take folic acid for four
years prior to pregnancy, there is a
70 percent decrease in preterm
birth," Commedore said. "That's
huge ... if the mom has diabetes or
thyroid or hypertension, getting
early prenatal care is not optional.
Those are all risks for going into
preterm labor. It's very important
that the mom gets early prenatal
care."
Graham encouraged women to
take advantage of the services
offered through the health
department Healthy Start, WIC,
health exams and soon, dental care
- and to trust that the level of care
there is on par with services offered
at a private physician's office.
"This clinic is like a one-stop
shop," Graham said. "We want
people to seek out these services.
We want people to start exercising,
to eat right, to take prenatal
vitamins."

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


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



Contemplations

By Alice DuPont, Editor




Natives of Gadsden can make a

difference


Just about everyone has heard of John
Jordan O'Neil, better known as "Buck
O'Neil" and the contributions he made to
baseball and the nation. But with all I've
heard about Buck O'Neil, I never heard that
his mother, Luella, a daughter of slaves,
was from Quincy.
I have been trying to find out her maiden
name but have not met with any success.
For those who don't have a clue about
O'Neil, here are a few facts about him.
O'Neil was 94-years-old when he died last
October and was the oldest surviving
veteran of the segregated Negro Baseball
League.
And so when Gary Clary brought me the
American Funeral Director's monthly
magazine with picture of O'Neil on the
cover and a four-page feature inside, I was
amazed to find that the man thousands of
sports fans from around the world admired,
was (in-part) a product of Quincy.
O'Neil was born in Carrabelle. There's not
very much written about his mother,
because his career as a baseball player is
what he is most noted for in the history
books. O'Neil's father, who played on local
teams, introduced him to the sport at an
early age. Like many during his day, O'Neil
was denied a chance to play Major League
baseball so his skills were showcased with
such teams as the Kansas City Monarchs in
the Negro League.
He played and managed the team from
1938-1948. O'Neil has a career batting
average of .288 including four .300-plus
seasons. As a first baseman, he led the
league in hitting with a .353 average in
1946 and the next year had a .358 average.
He played in three Negro League All-Star
games. He teamed with the great Satchel
Paige during the barnstorming games of the
1930s and 40s.
In 1962 O'Neil became the major league's
first black coach when he was hired by the
Chicago Cubs. He is credited with signing
Lou Brock and Ernie Banks for the club.
But O'Neil didn't rise to prominence until


the Ken Bums Documentary was aired
nationwide on PBS. Before his death he
appeared on the David Letterman Show
and the Late, Late Show with Tom Snyder.
There are so many great people who have
gone on the make great names for
themselves who are from Quincy and
Gadsden County or who have close ties
here. That's why when I hear people say
what our local children cannot do, it rubs
me the wrong way. People from here are
making significant contributions to the
nation and the world. There are doctors,
lawyers, athletes, teachers, scientists,
entertainers, and many other sorts of
professions representing us. No matter how
far they go, they got their start here.
Last week Michael and Susan O'Halloran
told me that their son, Micah, has just
earned his Ph.D was is doing research in
Boston. Chancellor Donald is a medical
doctor in New Orleans and another one of
their classmates, Chrishonda Curry McCoy
is a practicing opthalmologist in
Philadelphia and those are just three that 1
can think of right away.
In a few weeks, 20 East Gadsden High
School students will perform at Carnegie
hall. That is no small feat. On one of the
world's most famous stages, known for all
things good, our students will represent us
in a positive way.
These kids didn't just walk-on stage, they
had to prepare, they had to practice and they
had to prove commitment and for those
things, they have been rewarded.
Who knows how far they will go? Who
knows what the experience will bring to the
rest of their lives? Who knows how
experience will trickle down in their own
families and affect their younger siblings?
When Buck O'Neil's mother married and
left Quincy,'shehad no idea that she would
bring a chill'!in the world who would help
change the fa;de of America's sport:
baseball. There are more Buck O'Neils right
here in Gadsden County, just waiting to
spread their wings.


I don't know Mike Huckabee. And you
can relax. This is not about Republicans,
politics, campaigns, elections or who ought
to be running the country. Mr. Huckabee
won the Iowa primary. A "senior" political
analyst the day after the vote dismissed the
victory as an apparition. He allowed that
Huckabee didn't have a chance on the
national scene. According to this expert he
was "too religious" to get elected.
Now, that got my wheels to spinning!
How can you be too religious? What does
that mean? Is he too good? Or too honest?
Or too truthful? Or too upstanding?
Is it like being too colorful? Too rich?
Too broken hearted? Too full? Too
bashful? Too friendly?
We were wrestling on the second floor
fire escape when Jim Bob Harris somehow
lost his footing and tumbled over the side.
He clanged off the metal steps six or seven
times as he bounced toward the concrete
sidewalk below. The fire escape was, of
course, off limits to students unless we
were having a drill or smoke was flowing
out of every window on the second floor.
We were discussing whether to start a fire
or run for the county line when Hollis
Mayo peered down at a non moving Jim
Bob and said, "I hope he is not too dead."
Like there was some kind of degrees to it!
Hollis wasn't the smartest cracker in the
box but I found myself nodding in
agreement with him. I reckon we both
hoped Jim Bob was only half dead.
Just a few months later we graduated
from the eighth grade and celebrated by
tossing rocks off the top of the Highway 79
overpass onto unsuspecting travelers
below. Uncle Clement came by pulling a
wagon load of hogs behind his old Ford
truck. A couple of well thrown missiles
stirred those shoats up a mite more than we
aimed to. They got to turning and twisting
and jumping on one another....I thought
for a moment the tongue on that old wagon
was going to snap half in two! Uncle
Clement was weaving and bucking all over
the road.


We left the scene of the crime like we
were shot out of a cannon! We landed on
the other side of H. R. Smith's
Construction Company, jumped a hedge,
ran a mile down the railroad tracks and
collapsed in front of Deake Bradley's
house to catch our breath. Ricky Hale stuck
his head up out of the ditch and peered
back toward 79 to see if we had been
followed. "Man, I tell you, that is too much
fun!"
I couldn't suck in enough air to answer,
but I was thinking "too much fun" my hind
foot! If those hogs had toppled over or
Uncle Clement had slid that Ford off the
highway my Daddy would'a whipped me
within an inch of my life! We listened for
police sirens in silence as we hunkered
down in Deake's yard and pondered on just
exactly what COULD have happened. If
there was a way to have too much fun this
certainly wasn't it!
Arlo and Sedrick Cunningham lived
about as far out of town as you could get.
And, although I prided myself on being
country, couldn't none of us hold a candle
to them. They ate chittlins like popcorn.
Desert was a glass of buttermilk filled with
combread crumbles. They wore shoes only
if the temperature dropped into the teens.
They could talk to setting hens. They had a
pet goat they taught to point birds. They
knew the words to every song Kitty Wells
had ever recorded......they were country to
the limit! But too country?
It was just Arlo and Sed doing what they
do. How in the world would you gauge the
"prominence" of two ole boys growing up
eight miles out on the Como Road? Who.
would be fool enough to try?
In high school we spent most of our
"locker room" time alternately discussing
the upcoming game and girls. Lefty
Wiggleton thought Sandra Palmer was "too
pretty for words." I wasn't so sure. Her
nose was a little short and she had that high
forehead. And she'd kind'a grind her teeth
when she talked...... Besides, we didn't

Out of left field


Nothing heralds the imminence of
spring like dogwoods and double
switches.
Like that? It's a nifty baseball phrase I
picked up from The Official Baseball
Slang Dictionary, which I turned to when
writing a story about Chattahoochee's
endeavor to start up a minor league
baseball team.
That was necessary because baseball has
never been a hobby of mine. When I was
young -, wait, younger some well-
meaning school official or church group
would invariably coax a bunch of us into
playing softball.
My personal batting strategy was to
duck every time the ball came my way. It
just seemed like good common sense.
Still, baseball is a great spectator sport,
and now that we're faced with the
prospect of having two minor league
teams in Gadsden County the Quincy
Dodgers and the Chattahoochee Red
Birds I thought I'd brush up on the
terminology of true devotees:
Alley: (noun) the spaces in the outfield
between the right-fielder and center-
fielder (right field alley), or the left-
fielder and center-fielder (left field
alleys). Alleys are also referred to "gaps."
Around the Horn: a phrase used to
describe a double play that goes from
third base to second base to first base.
Baltimore Chop: (noun) (1.) a manner
of hitting by chopping the baseball ball
into the ground immediately in front of
home plate with the design of making the
ball "hop" into the air, either high enough
to allow the batter to reach first base
before the infielder can field the ball and
throw itto first base. (2.) Another goal is
to chop the ball hard .enough to have it.
ricochet over the infielders' heads.
Bandbox: (noun) a baseball field

whose dimensions are small and thus
favor the hitter. Origin the term derived
during the big band era of swing music
where backing bands for Duke Ellington
and Tommy Dorsey often had to be
crammed in to tiny little boxes just so the
whole band could fit onto the small stages
of the days. Usage in Today's Game -
"Well, you must remember that Aaron
Boone hit those 25 home runs playing in
that Bandbox at Cincinnati's Great
American Ballpark."
Blue refers to the umpires (because of
their dark blue uniforms).
Can of Corn (also, Can of Peas): a high,
easy-to-catch, fly ball hit to the outfield.
Origin in 19th century American general
stores, canned good were often stored on
the highest part of the shelves, requiring
the grocer to use a log stick or pole to
knock the can off its stack and then catch
it as it fell slowly towards his hands just
like catching a high, lazy flyball.
Caught Looking: striking out on a called
third strike.
Emery pitch a pitch that is thrown after
the pitcher surreptitiously shaves or cuts
the ball with a foreign object. This
changes the natural spherical shape of the
ball, and thus alters the path of the pitch
once thrown. This is an illegal practice.
Fireman a team's closer.
Moon Shot: a home run that is hit
particularly high and long such that it
appears to those in the ballpark to be
headed for the moon.
On the Interstate: hitting between .100
and .199. The phrase comes from the fact
that Interstate highways often have
numbers in the 100s, such as 1-195."
Tater: a home run
..Worm Burner: a hard hit, scorching
ground ball.
See you at the ballpark.


Litter in



Gadsden is



everyone s



problem


By Eugene Lamb, Jr., Vice Chairman
Gadsden County Board of County Commissioners

Am I the only one who
notices that Gadsden County
will soon be buried under a
mound of trash and waste?
Certainly not! Judging from
all the phone calls I get from
citizens and the conversations I
have had during board
meetings with my fellow commissioners, they are
just as concerned about the increasing amount of
trash that seems to be littering our roadways,
along our rivers and within our communities.
Litter has not only become an individual district
problem, but a county-wide problem. And I, like
many others, am appealing to our residents and
neighbors to step up and take more responsibility
to keep our county clean.
We should not tolerate litter on our streets or
the throwing of trash anywhere other than in the
appropriate containers or at the authorized
collection sites. There is a law on the books
regarding littering and, as a county, we would
hate to have to enforce it when the matter can be
simply handled by all of us being more
responsible. As a community of residents, we
should take pride in our surroundings and where
we reside.
Increasingly, the public works department is
spending more time almost every other week -
clearing the littered areas instead of addressing
other important county issues. -This should not
be, especially when we all are capable of cleaning
around our own front doors.
So, Gadsden County, join me in being proud of
our county by keeping itclean. Let us invest in
the future of our county and consider the legacy
we are leaving behind for our children and
children's children. Because right now, I must
say, the picture doesn't look so good.

Amendment

One;

Moving

forward for

our citizens


By Gadsden County Commission
Chaiman Ed Dixon

Now that Amendment One was
approved by a majority of voters in
the state of Florida, as your elected
representatives in Gadsden County,
the Board of County
Commissioners will stand behind
the vote and do our best to ensure
that the essential services and
programs we provide on a daily
basis are not negatively impacted.
The Board of County
Commissioners did not take a
position on Amendment One
because we believe that voters can
choose for themselves what is best
for their situation based on
information
provided b.
all sectors.
Even though
the majonrtr
of Gadsden
County voter%
chose not h )
support the
Amendment,
the measure overwhelming passed
and we are now left to find ways of
movingforward for our citizens.
Passage of Amendment One now
equates to a $1.2 million loss in
revenue. That, coupled with
Governor Crist's proposed delay of
providing small fiscally
constrained counties with revenues
to replace the loss, means we will
have some belt tightening to do. As
a credit to your county commission
and under my previous leadership
role on the board, we instituted a
number of rigid and sound fiscal
policies that today puts us in a
position with healthy reserves that
will help soften the impact of the
revenue loss. We are not, however,
one of those counties that used
increased property values and
revenues to rack up huge reserves
or one that indulged in rampant
expenditures "like drunken
sailors". We have been deliberate
and conservative in how we spent
your tax dollars. Further, we also
learned that the Governor has
proposed eliminating the Small
County Solid Waste Grant which
we used to fund our rural waste
sites and required us to have a
recycling program in our county.
As I stated before, we will be
doing some belt tightening. We'
will still need to evaluate all
programs and will make some
'tough decisions. One of the
greatest assets in our county is our
citizen involvement in our
government. I implore you to
attend our county commission
meetings to better understand how
this Amendment will affect you.
Take the opportunity provided to
speak al these meetings on what is
important to you. Attend the 5 ON
5 meetings in your district that we
are about to begin again and
discuss with your district
commissioner what is important to
you and your community. If
meetings are not scheduled in your
district, contact your commissioner
and request a meeting.
Please understand that further
cuts in county revenues either by
the Legislature or the Taxation and
Budget Reform Committee are
anticipated this year. Decisions are
going to be made in the Spring on
how and on what our revenues are
going to be spent. Don't be left
out!
My fellow citizens, we have a
great county and much still to
accomplish this year.
Let's stand united and put our
collective minds together to make
our decisions and your 2006
Community of the Year even
better. The Gadsden County Board
of County Commissioners looks
forward to your participation and I
await your feedback.
Edward J. Dixon, Chairman
Gadsden County Board of
County Commissioners

Two injured in accident on 1-10 13riefs


Nebraska woman, Tallahassee

man hurt in Sunday crash


By LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor

A Nebraska woman and a
Tallahassee man were injured
in a wreck Sunday afternoon
on Interstate 10 near
Greensboro.
According to Florida
Highway Patrol reports, James
Burkett, 25, of Tallahassee
was driving a 2005 Toyota


truck east in the outside east-
bound lane of Interstate 10
tried to pass a slower-moving
tractor trailer and pulled into
the inside lane in which Anna
Marie Jane Williams, 32, of
Papillion, Neb., was driving.
Williams steered her 1996
Saturn left in an attempt to
avoid a collision, driving into
the grass median.
Burkett then veered back


into his lane and Williams
over-corrected while steering
her car back to the right, caus-
ing the car to cross over into
the outside eastbound lane.
The left front of Burkett's
truck collided with the right
rear of her car, causing the car
to rotate counterclockwise and
enter the southern shoulder.
The Saturn overturned several
times, ejecting Williams, who
was not wearing a seatbelt.
Her car came to a final rest in
a cement ditch, upright, facing
north.
Williams was airlifted to


Tallahassee Memorial
Hospital in critical condition;
her passenger, Aaron Lee
Williams, 31, of Tallahassee
was taken to TMH in serious
condition.
Burkett was not injured in
the crash.
Gadsden County
Emergency Medical Services,
volunteer fire departments
from Sycamore and
Greensboro, the Gadsden
County Sheriff's Office and
Airmedic 11 and LifeNet
assisted at the crash scene.

City of Quincy names new utilities director


City Manager Bi,'ll Bogan is
pleased to anlobunce the
appointment o-6f Michael
"Mike" Wade.~ts the new utili-
ties director following an
intensive t! ree-month search.
His ap ointment begins
Monday, february 4, 2008.
Wadw, a Quincy native, is
no"'new to local city govern-
rment. Last September he was
recognized for 20 years of
service including 12 years as
assistant of underground utili-
ties, and three years as the
assistant utilities director
before being appointed interim


director last November.
"Thankfully, the best person
for the job is already in house,"
said Bogan. "Not only does
Mike have a thorough knowl-
edge of the city, he also knows
what it takes to operate a first-
class utility system. Moreover,
he is well respected by our cit-
izens and the employees he is
charged with managing. These
were a plus during the selection
process," Bogan added.
In light of predictable budg-
et shortfalls expected after a
majority of Floridians recently
voted in support of the proper-


ty tax amendment, city man-
agement realizes that munici-
palities will have to do more
with less and be able to rely on
a skilled workforce.
"It was incumbent upon
management to look broadly
for a skilled professional to
direct our utilities department.
However, in the final analysis,
we recognized and rewarded a
homegrown professional who
has come through the ranks,
knows how to get the job done
and has proven his' commit-
ment to this city in spite of
dwindling resources or other

Workforce Plus unveils new initiative


From Staff Reports

Workforce Plus, in partner-
ship with The Printing House
and Gadsden Technical
Institute, unveiled its newest
initiative, "Youth Design
Gadsden" Jan. 31 at the Printing
House.
"I'm very excited about the
new partnership with The
Printing House. This venture
will provide yet another oppor-
tunity for students in Gadsden
County to get real-world experi-
ence in the workplace while
training for future jobs in the
graphic communications indus-
try," said-Debra Rackley, direc-
tor of Vocational and Adult
Education with Gadsden
County Schools. "The partner-
ship with Workforce Plus, The
Printing House and Gadsden
County Schools is a grassroots
project and will hopefully be
the door to additional projects
in the future."
Students currently participat-
ing in the:business class at GTI
will be afforded an opportunity
to explore a creative workplace
and begin inroads toward long-
term careers in the print indus-
try.
"The Printing House is
pleased to be a part of such a
valuable partnership in an effort
to connect education, the busi-
ness community and work-
force," said Larry Rishell, pres-
ident of The Printing House.
"Youth Design Gadsden will
provide students an opportunity
to gain insight on printing
careers that may lead to interest
in entering the industry upon
completion of high school or
college. This program will ben-


efit the students by providing
job shadowing and internships,
as well as lay the groundwork
for future full time employ-
ment."
Under this collaboration, stu-
dents will be challenged to take
on a real life business situation
that will afford them an oppor-
tunity to establish a mock busi-
ness that includes the real life
challenges of running a busi-
ness.
Students will also be given
actual job listings and job
descriptions along wi.th.an orga-
nizational chart from The
i i


Printing House regarding posi-
tion that make up the organiza-
tion. Students will then inter-
view and compete for those
positions and be held responsi-
ble for activities assigned for
their mock printing company.
At the end of the school year,
the students will present to The
Printing House staff on their
experience as well as provide a
status update on their project
goal. Throughout the experi-
ence, students will be compet-
ing for drawings by showcasing
their work. Additionally, stu-
dents will be exposed to paid

City to offer free Internet services to customers


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

Want internet service and
can't afford it?
If you are a live in the City
of Quincy, there could be help
for you.
In order to close what city
officials are calling the "digi-
tal gap" citizens who pay their
utility bills on time could get


free internet.
Director of Information
Technologies Ray Eaton said
the free service is one way to
give back to the community.
He said there is a surplus of
broadband terminators in the
city's warehouse and it's a
way good paying customers
can cash in on the free
devices.
"We have a bunch of these


devices that we purchased
over the year and we don't
want them sitting in the ware-
house.
"Customers who pay their
(utility) bills on time can
come in and get on the list (for
installation) and we'll be more
than happy to get it to them,"
Eaton said.
"A lot of our citizens don't
have the technology they need


to keep up with the modern
world. So what's the best way
to get them into the modern
world? Internet," Mayor Keith
Dowdell said.
He went on the say that the
interest will help students
with their homework because
they will able to access
research materials.
"This techonolgy is in
many classrooms. The most


advanced way of teaching is
not in a class working, its the
kids getting on the internet to
do research and find things
out. Right now we have F-
CAT coming up soon and
there are many websites out
there that a dedicated to F-
CAT," Dowdell said.
It will help parents who
need to get information on
line, access money saving


coupons online, and even
shop online or work at home.
"What" it does for our citi-
zens is that it closes the the
digital divide for free internet.
The internet is not a luxury; it
is ubiquitous. Everybody
needs it. It's a must have,"
Eaton said.
For" more information on
the free service, call
Netquincy at 850-875-7354.

aside and give others a chance
to serve," he said in making the
announcement.
He said he is looking forward
to doing some of the things that
the jobs tough schedules
prevented through the years like
spending more time with his
family and traveling.
"But I certainly will not be
retiring, I hope to become


certified by the Florida Supreme
Court as a circuit civil and
family mediator and qualified as
an arbitrator. I will explore
some other opportunities which
could include continuing on the
bench as a senior judge or
serving as a private judge or
presiding official over summary
jury trials, as well as getting
involved with other forms of


alternative dispute resolution. I
am not ruling out anything," he
said.
Judge Bateman said he
decided to make the
announcement now so members
of The Florida Bar who have
not already expressed an
interest will have time to
campaign for election to the
seat he is leaving.

Jags wrap up perfect regular season SchebuIe


Facing by far their toughest
test of the year the East
Gadsden Jaguars got by Delray
Beach American Heritage 51-
48 in the Breakdown Shootout
Basketball Classic at FAMU
Saturday night.
The Jaguars started the
game like they have most
games this year blowing their
way to a big lead.
They held Heritage's star
guards Kenny Boynton and
Raymond. Taylor down in the
first half and built up a 29-15
halftime lead. That lead evap-
orated in the third quarter when


Boynton and Taylor led a 22-3
Heritage run to give the Delray
team a 37-32 lead heading into
the final.
Not used to being behind
that late in a game, East
Gadsden regrouped and
outscored Heritage 19-11 in the
final quarter to end their regu-
lar season with a 24-0 mark.
Jaguar guards Leonardo
Deloney and Ricky Ray had
nice games to help East
Gadsden build the first lead
and to help them recover from
their third quarter dip.
Deloney finished with 16


points and Ray had 10.

Their opponent for the final
game of the tournament was

In an uncommon display, the

Chattahoochee looks


at hosting semi-pro


baseball team


By LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor

If all goes as planned, the Red
Birds will return to Chattahoochee
this spring.
The City of Chattahoochee is
in the process of franchising a
semi-pro baseball team in the
Alabama/Georgia/Florida
Baseball League. The league con-
sists of two divisions North and
South and is headed by
Commissioner Neignaiah
Chambers in Tallahassee.
During the 2007 baseball sea-
son, the 57-year-old league con-
sisted of six teams in the Northern
Division and five teams, including
the Quincy Dodgers, in the
Southern Division.
The Chattahoochee Red Birds
will be franchised as the sixth
team in the Southern Division dur-
ing the 2008 season, provided
there is enough interest from
potential players in the Big Bend
region.
"It's in the exploratory stages
right now," said Chattahoochee
City Manager Lee Garner. "We're
, trying to see in the next 30 days or
so whether there's enough interest.
We think we've got more than
enough."


The home field will be Terrell
Field in Chattahoochee, which the
city spruced up using Florida
Recreation Development
Assistance Program funds.
"I got FRDAP grants to fix the
field up for the school and then
they closed the high school,"
Garner said. "It's a nice field down
there we want somebody to use
it."
The season will begin for all
teams Sunday, April 6 at 3 p.m.
with an all-star break in midsea-
son. It ends with a championship
series between top division teams
the first week in August.The
Alabama/Georgia/Florida
Baseball League is for those 18-
40. Red Birds organizers hope to
find a team manager, two coaches
and a minimum of 20 players with
a commitment by Feb. 28.

like anything but domina-
tion. The Jags led by a slim 11-
10 lead in the opening quarter
but picked up the momentum
and led 32-19 at halftime. The
team outscored Rickards in
each of the last two quarters for
the semifinal win. The win was
also the teams 20th of the sea-
son against three losses.
The final game, held at
Rickards, pitted the traditional-
ly successful East Gadsden
team against a much improved
Wakulla team. Although
Wakulla had given the Jaguars
slight problems in the previous


two regular season games, this
was not the case Saturday night.
Wakulla was outscored in every
quarter and was down 35-16 at
the half. In a total team effort,
nine Jaguar players scored.
Leading the scorers was
Dytesha Francis with 16 points.
Jasmine Grice chipped in 11
points and ten rebounds.
The win set up a regional
quarterfinal game against
District 1 runnerup Pensacola
Washington. The state series
game will be held Thursday
night at East Gadsden at 7:00.

MUNROE'S DREAMS
CRUSHED IN OVERTIME
LOSS

The Munroe team, inspired


by new head coach Christy
Ulrich, were playing their best
basketball of the season. They
were sporting the best record in
recent years, 12-6, and had tied
with Aucilla for the second seed
in the Class A District 3 tourna-
ment. The Lady Cats had split
with Aucilla during the regular
season, lending much anticipa-
tion to the semifinal contest.
Both teams struggled early to
find a rhythm with Munroe tak-
ing the early lead 8-7 at the end
of the first. Aucilla used their
inside game to score 14 points
in the second quarter to
Munroe's eight points. Aucilla
led 21-16 at the half. The third
quarter saw more of the same
trading of baskets and changing
of leads. Aucilla finally took a


five point lead leading into the
fourth quarter. Munroe finally
found their rhythm, most of it
coming at the hands of Malorie
McKinnon.
The senior guard sank two
big three pointers midway
through the fourth quarter and
the Lady Cats upped their
defensive effort to go ahead as
the game seconds were ticking
down. Two missed free throws
by Crystal Wade allowed
Aucilla to tie the game with less
than 20 seconds to play.
It was then the momentum
shifted back to Aucilla. The
Warriors took control of the
boards and the game and went
on for a 48-44 win. Munroe's
season ended with a 13-6
record.

EGHS chorus raising funds for a trip to Carnegie


By LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor


This is the story of how 20 East
Gadsden High School chorus
members beat the odds,
transformed themselves into
classical singers and secured a spot
center stage at Carnegie Hall.
"It's almost like the little engine
that could," EGHS chorus director
Rasheen Jamison-Richardson said.
The chorus earned bragging
rights in July by becoming a
certified performing group at the
Walt Disney World Magic Music
Days program, in which schools
and community groups perform in
the parks and participate in
workshops.
After that success, Richardson
decided to take a chance on
winning a spot at Carnegie Hall's
National Festival Chorus.
"I just decided 'to take that
experience to give me the guts to
say, OK, why don't we try out for
Carnegie Hall," said Richardson.
Carnegie Hall representatives
liked what they heard of 'the
recording of the chorus Richardson
sent, and the Jaguar singers will
perform at Carnegie Hall April 15.
There are a few hurtled left to
clear organizers anticipate the
trip will cost around $40,000 and
to date, they've raised about half
that. The deadline for deposits on
motel rooms and airfare is Feb. 8.
Still, chorus members are
optimistic and excited.


If our community backs us,

we re going up as a

community. It brings us

together.'

EGHS chorus director Rasheen Jamison-Richardson


"I can tell all my friends and
family or future kids about what it
was like," said sophomore Aysa
Gant.
The group is scheduled to arrive
in Manhattan April 13 and practice
for four hours that day and four
hours the next. The 20 chorus
group members are slated to
perform April 15.
In between practices and the
performance, they will see a
Broadway show, go to Rockefeller
Center and then take a cruise
around the harbor after the
performance.
Richardson said she set high
standards for Jaguar singers early
on: Each must have either a 3.0
grade point average or past all
parts of the Florida Comprehensive
Assessment Test.
Meanwhile, she says, group
members are working to change
their sound from gospel to


classical. They will perform songs
in six languages at Carnegie Hall.
"It's a challenge vocally,"
Richardson said.
Around 150 singers from
Australia to Utah will perform at
the event.
Senior Lamorris McSwain, who
plans to major in music at Florida
Agricultural and Mechanical
University, sees this as the
opportunity of a lifetime.
"Singing is my life. It's just
something I love to do," he said. "I
believe going to Carnegie Hall will
basically make history for me ... I
was overwhelmed that we as
students had been chosen to go to
Carnegie Hall, the first school in
Gadsden County to go to Carnegie
Hall."
Junior Kimberly Cromartie is
looking forward to going to New
York, and says she values the
camaraderie of the group.


"You learn how to commit with
people you don't really know it
feels great," she said. "They might
be people that are not really like
you but when we .sing, it's
overpowering."
For freshman Nalka Wisnasky,
the experience is an opportunity to
win recognition for not just the
chorus, but also the county.
"We've been practicing really
hard for this. We practice every
day in the morning," she said. "It
makes me feel great because here
we are teens in an F school trying
to make a difference."
The Gadsden County
Commission committed to giving
the group $5,000 toward the trip's
$40,000 price tag; the City of
Quincy kicked in another $5,000
and Ajax Construction Company,
$10,000.
Parents are raising funds as they
can, Richardson said, and each
parent is required to put $500
toward the trip.
"We're halfway there. We still
need $20,000 to be able to do all
the things that we need to do,"
Richardson said. ""If our
community backs us, we're going
up as a community. It brings us
together."
Donations can be mailed to East
Gadsden High School Choral
Department, 27001 Bluestar
Memorial Highway, Havana, FL,
32333.

Coffel, Lota Griffith
Smith

Lota Griffith Smith Coffel of
Tallahassee, formerly of
Quincy Florida, died suddenly.
Wednesday, January 30, 2008,
in Tallahassee.
A memorial service will be
held at 11AM on Saturday,
February 2, 2008, in the
Gallery of the Parry Center at
Westminster Oaks Retirement
Center.. A worship service to
celebrate her life will follow
at 3PM at the First Baptist
Church, Quincy, Florida.
Burial will take place at
Hillcrest Cemetery in Quincy.
Mrs. Coffel was born on
October 8, 1917, in Calvary,
Georgia, the daughter of Glen
and Myrtice Maxwell Griffith.
She was a graduate of Cairo
High School and Georgia
State College for Women in
Valdosta, GA, majoring in
English.
Following her graduation at
19 years of age, she taught
high school English in
Whigham, Georgia and subse-
quently in Greensboro,
Florida.
She never got tired of telling
stories about her life in
Greensbro, especially tales
about living with her friends
at Mrs. Johnson's rooming
house and antics of her stu-
dents, some of them men who
had returned from service
determined to finish high
school and older than she,
their teacher. In 1940, Lota
Griffith married Thomas
Smith, a farmer from-
Greensboro.
They were parents of four
active children and enjoyed a
full and prosperous rural fam-
ily life for 26 years until Mr.
Smith's death. Mrs. Smth was
an anchor of her church, the
Greensboro Baptist Church, as
she taught Sunday school,
directed Vacation Bible
Schools, and helped lead
many of the activities of the
Women of the Church. She
was always a generous spirit
in her cth'tch and in her com-
munity.AIn 1969, she married
Clyde Coffell of Milwaukee,
Wisconsin, a retired insurance -
agent, who delighted in mov-
ing to the Greensboro-Quincy
area "to escape the snow", or
so he said.
Together they traveled all
over the globe and packed
their 28 years of marriage full
of family activities, church
and community involvements
until Mr. Coffel's death in
1996. Mrs. Coffel's latter
years were greatly enhanced
by her move in 1999 to
Westminster Oaks Retirement
Center in Tallahassee.
She flourished with the stim-
ulation of bright new friends
in her "golden years" and
until the day before her death
was still playing a
"Challenging" hand of bridge,
driving her car, and smiling
with glee at every opportuni-
ty to travel with her children,
grandchildren and great
grandchildren.
Mrs. Coffel is survived by her
four children. Tillie S. Tice
(Harry Burnett) of Charlotte,
NC; Sandy S. Higdon of
Tallahassee; Tommy Smith
(Laura) of Greensboro; and
Judith S. Maxwell (Jerry) of
Bainbridge, GA. Eight grand-
children: Ashley Fowler, Susy
F. Ward and John Maxwell of
Atlanta, GA; Cindy Tice,
Mary Beth T. Mclntyre, Leigh
Ann Smith and Lynsley Smith
of Charlotte, NC; and Anne
Maxwell of Tallahassee. Five
great-grandchildren: Austin
Fowler, Ellie McIntyre, Corey
Fowler, James McIntyre' and
Maison Ward.


The family will receive
friends prior to the service at
First Baptist Church, Quincy,
Florida.
Memorial contributions may
be made to the First Baptist
Church of Quincy, Florida;
the .First Baptist Church of
Greensboro, Florida; or to
Big Bend Hospice, 105 North
Jackson Street, Quincy, FL
32351, or to the charity of

verse of the weelz:
And the Lord said unto Noah, Come thou and all thy house into the ark: for thee have I
seen righteous before me in this generation. Genesis 7:1 (KJV)

The world has grown very
wicked in the sight of God and the
people did not want anything to do
with his ways. There was a man
who loved the Lord and all of his
statues, his name was Noah.
God told Noah to build an ark
and that he was going to destroy the
world with rain. Noah obeyed God
and built the ark with the help of
his sons. During this time Noah
would try and warn the people
about what God was going to do
and they would just laugh and
mock him. God sent the rain where
Noah and his family were saved
from the flood.


FaivUly rTime This Vweek:
Try and tell someone the good news that God has done for you as a iamiLy.

Every February in the United States, Black History Month is celebrated.
This is a month set aside to honor, educate, and remember African American
heritage. African American heroes are honored, and school children are often
taught lessons about African American history. The ongins of Black History
Month began in 1926 when a man by the name of Carter G Woodson formed
Negro History Week. This week was set aside to focus studies on black history,
as African American history had not been largely integrated into school text-
books and lessons at the time. The goal of this annual event was to eventually
integrate both White and Black history, eliminating the need for the Negro
History Week.
In 1976, The Association for the Study of Afro-American Life and History
formed what we know today as Black History Month. The month of February
was chosen, based on the birthdays of two key figures in black history--Fredrick
Douglas, an abolitionist and former slave, and Abraham Lincoln, the President
of the United Stales who declared freedom to all slaves with the Emancipation
Proclamation.

Covenant Hospice


honors volunteers


Recently Covenant Hospice
presented three special volunteers
Heart of Hospice awards for their
dedicated time and efforts.
Covenant recognized E'Layne
Koenigsberg, Stephanie Marens
and Eileen Suero for volunteering
their artistic talents for Covenant
patients.
Koenigsberg recently presented
her "Angel Tiles" to 50 Covenant
patients as holiday gifts. The tiles
were made from an original
photograph- of three drain pipes
on a retaining wall in California.
The runoff from the pipes stained
the wall in the shape of three
angels. She decoupaged the tile
with a copy of the photo, painted
the edges and wrote an uplifting
quote at the bottom of each tile.
To see one of these beautiful tiles
visit www.theangelstory.com.
Koenigsberg began
volunteering for hospice when
her father passed away. She


enjoys volunteering for hospice
because she believes in
Covenant's mission. Koenigsberg
wanted to give the tiles to the
patients because "it's a nice thing
to do around the holidays and it's
uplifting during a difficult time."
Koenigsberg is the owner of
Gypsy and Me, a multi-media
jewelry and hand-painted tile and
plaque business. Her work is
showcased in the Wild Woman
Gallery in Railroad Square Art
Park.
Marens and Suero presented
crocheted blankets and other
items to Covenant patients during
the holidays. They are members
of Hearts for Hospice, a student
run organization at FSU
dedicated to serving the
community through handmade
crocheted items.
Marnes and Suero have been
volunteering for Covenant for
three years and have presented
patients with over 100 crocheted
items. Items include blankets,
hats, scarves, gloves, slippers and
wheel chair accessories.
For more information regarding
volunteering with Covenant
Hospice, contact the local
volunteer manager, Cheree'
Pittman, at 850-575-4998.

Reading is fundamental at HMS


'Arithmetickles' coming to WGHS


Arithmetickles, a national
touring math assembly, will be
presented at West Gadsden High
School on February 8, 2008 at
9:30 a.m. in the cafeteria.
Arithmetickles is based on the
concept of math plus fun.
Produced by ArtsEcho, a New
Jersey-based theatre company
now in its 20th year,
Arithmetickles uses theatre
games, audience participation,
interactive math, teams of kids
onstage, and stand-up comedy
all based on math geared to each
grade level present.
Arithmetickles lives up to its
name. It was created by the
team of Sandra and Ben Bendor,
theatre artists and parents of
three children. The Bendors
were concerned by the apparent
reluctance of their kids and oth-


ers to learn math in the class-
room. They decided to use their
theatre and comedy skills to
help kids love math. They came
up with a show that makes math
funny and cool for elementary
and middle school students and
their teachers and parents.
Recognizing the fact that math
is the gateway to technology and
science, they created a show that
takes math out of the textbok
and vividly demonstrates to kids
that math is a vital part of our
lives every single day.
From 32 shows in its first
year, Arithmetickles has grown
to over 750 shows every year
throughout the United States.
Now in its 10th year,
Arithmetickles has been seen by
more than 1,650,000 kids in 21
states. ArtsEcho, originally the


Children's Theatre Center of
New Jersey, was founded in
1987. In addition to
Arithmetickles and
Arithmetickles Math Night,
ArtsEcho also produces the con-
cert 20th Century Music and
.On, now in its 16th year, and the
Arts in Education Directory.

Havana Middle School is conducting a school wide activity to support reading. According to
statistics, the more a child is read to the better reader he will become. Havana Middle School's
teachers are reading daily to students during homeroom. Mrs. Knight, the school's media special-
ist, has selected the novel, "Bud, Not Buddy" by Christopher Curtis. The"Teacher Reading to
Kids Program" is amazing. It will enhance the students' love for reading. HMS hopes the students
that are being read to will be uplifted on every word. Some students feel as if they are actually a
part of the novel. Reading aloud to children helps them develop and improve literacy skills-read-
ing, writing, speaking, and listening. HMS feels that time spent reading aloud is valuable. The
photo shows 6-1 being read to by Mrs. Jari Lewis.

The 21st Century GREAT
Center at Havana Middle
School has introduced a new
program to participating stu-
dents.
The Future Business
Leaders of America (FBLA) is
a non-profit, local, district,
state, regional, and national
organization for all middle and
high school students participat-
ing in business and business
related programs.
In Florida, FBLA functions
as an integral part of the
instructional program of the
business education program in


secondary school.
21st Century students par-
ticipating in the new program
will develop competent,
aggressive business leadership.
They will strengthen the confi-
dence in themselves and their
work.
They will become more
interested in and gain a better
understanding of American
business enterprise. The pro-
gram will encourage members
in the development of individ-
ual projects, which contribute
to the improvement of home,
business and community. It


will develop character, prepare
for useful citizenship, and fos-
ter patriotism. It will encourage
and practice efficient money
management. It will encourage
scholarship and promote
school loyalty. It will assist
students in the establishment of
occupational goals and facili-
tate the transition from school
to work.
The photo shows a few
members of FBLA working on
a project.

tact the club sponsor Mrs.
Linda Jones at 850 539 2822
