Power costs

may rise for

customers

- by ALICE DUPONT.
Times Editor
City of Quincy utility customers should get
prepared for another rise in their electric bills.
The city owes Progress Energy (PEF) over
$400,000 in addition to the regular monthly
payment and they want it in the next four
months.
According to City Manager Bill Bogan,
Progress Energy was billing the city and other
customersfor duel on a plan similar to budget
billing. The cusotmer pays a flat rate and at the
end of the year, the customers either owes
more or gets a credit if the bill was overpaid.
Because of rising fuel prices, the city's budget
payment plan didn't cover the true cost in
2007. So, when Progress Energy tallied up at
the end of the year, the city owed them a hefty
sum.
In a letter to Bogran dated January 31 and
received in the Bogan's office on Feb. 3,
Progress Energy referred to an agreement
under which the City will pay its areas fuel
balance in four equal installments, plus interest
calculated at an annual rate of 7.76% from
Jan. 31. The first payment of $101,845.50
according to the letter, is due with the January
bill with other payments scheduled to be made
in February, March, and April.
"If the city fails to make any of the
installment payments to PEF as set forth in
this agreement, the City shall be required to
pay in full any remaining balance of the areas
fuel balance within three (3) days of receipt of

Suspect in custody in Midway murder


26-year-old charged with first-degree murder, arson, robbery


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
The Gadsden County Sheriffs Office
with assistance from the Florida
Department of Law Enforcement and
the State Fire Marshal's Office arrested
a Tallahassee man early Sunday
afternoon in connection with the death
of 17-year-old Dekendric Rikale
Smith, whose body found in a burning
car last Thursday near the entrance to
Hammock Creek Industrial Park near
Midway.
Arrested and charged with first-
degree murder is 26-year-old


Dearendo Laqwan
Harris. He is also .
charged with arson
and robbery with a
deadly weapon. Lt.
Jim Corder of the .,
GCSO, announced '
the arrest during a
Monday morning
news conference.
"The suspect was Harris
apprehended in
Tallahassee at in the Brittany Estates
Mobile Home Park in Tallahassee. He
is in the Gadsden County Jail with no
bond," Corder said.


Smith, whose
18th birthday
would have
Saturday, lived for
the past eight
months in the same
trailer park as
Harris and the two
were acquainted.
According to Smith
Corder this is what
they believe happened:
Cell phone records show that
throughout the day Harris and Smith
communicated with each other.
Around 4 :30 that afternoon Harris


rode with Smith to Midway where
Harris set up a drug deal for Smith.
The pair met up with two people on
Lanier Road around 5:15 p.m. to
complete a sale of crack cocaine deal
which Harris had set up.
Once the $20 transaction was made,
Harris asked one of the individuals to
ride with he and Smith. Harris got into
the back seat behind Smith while the
other person occupied the front
passenger seat.
Harris, who is originally from
Gadsden County and has relatives
here, showed Smith where to drive in

Black History Month


This calendar, created by
Tallahassee Community
College features three African-
American women from
Gadsden County who are
recognized for their
contributions to the cause of
their community.


Gadsden women featured on TCC calendar


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
The 2008 Tallahassee Community
College calender features three
Gadsden County women. The theme
of the calendar is "The Mis-Education
of the Negro: Re-educating and
Empowering 75 Years Later."
The late Mary Lee Hill, former
Mayor of Midway, was honored for
her many contributions to the
community. Hill, who died June 14,
2007 after an extended illness, was
well known for her many hours of


volunteer work both with the
American Red Cross and the City of
Midway. She also served as a member
of the Gadsden County Juvenile
Justice Council and the Board of
Trustees for TCC.
She graduated with .a BS Degree
from Florida A & M University and
was a member of Sigma Gamma Rho
Sorority.
* She was a pioneer in the field of
computer technology beginning her
career at Zellerbach Paper Compdny in
San Francisco. Her career included
work at the NASA Computer Sciences


Corp. in Clear Lake, TX and systems
support for the U.S. Navy and
Presidential Command Post at
Rockwell International Defense
Division in Dallas.
Midway Mayor Delores Madison
was featured on the calendar for her
contributions in the area of
government. Madison' has been
Midway's mayor for the past six years
and her leadership has brought
professional management to the city.
"I think the biggest accomplishment
we have made is getting our credibility
restored. We have gotten ourselves out


of the financial bind we were in and
have saved our city because the
Governor was ready to take our
charter," Madison said.
Now that the city's financial
problems have been removed they
have been able to build up reserve
funds and have received perfect audits
for the past few years. Madison is
most proud of some of the other
accomplishments that have had a more
direct impact on the citizens day-to-
day lives.

2006. First, when awarded the
contract to pick up residential
refuse for the City of
Tallahassee, Waste Pro chose
Midway as the location for
their regional office. Then,

remote areas of Midway. During
the drive Harris told Smith to
drive to a remote area on Central
Road in Midway. Harris told
Smith to stop but he refused to
stop and continued to drive
slowly away from the area. Harris
continued to guide Smith telling
him that a person they were to
met was on the way.
Harris guided Smith to another
area where he told him he needed
to relieve himself. Smith got.out
of the car and stood beside it for a
few minutes. When Harris got
back into the car, he pulled out a


cord and quickly wrapped it
around Smith's neck and began
choking Smith.
"The other person in the front
seat of the car said he heard
Smith say 'this is a robbery, give
up the dope'. As Smith was being
choked he removed a pill bottle
containing crack cocaine and
passed it backwards to Harris.
Harris continued choking Smith
and demanded money," the report
stated.
The witness said Smith had a
wadded up $20 bill and a one
dollar bill which he gave to


Harris.
The witness told authorities that
when Harris continued choking
Smith they got out of the car and
told Smith "I'm not up with all of
this." The witness ran from the
scene but clearly saw Harris
continue choking Smith.
Using a cell phone the witness
called the other individual for a
ride away from the area.
Shortly afterward. Smith ran
from the wooded area and called
the same person for a ride. When
the witness asked Harris what"
happened to Smith, Harris replied


" he got away."
Harris paid $6 for a ride back to
his Brittany Estates home.
A Tri-eagle employee leaving
work saw Smith during car and
called for help. When deputies
arrived a few minutes later. When
fire fighters arrived they found
Smith's body on the rear floor. An
investigator from the State Fire
Marshal determined the fire was
deliberately set.


After seeing Smith's burning
vehicle on the Friday news, the
two people who met up with
Harris and Smith on Lanier Road
voluntarily came to the GCSO of
tell what they knew about the
incident.
Drung questioning Sunday,
Harris continued to deny that he
had been in Midway with Harris.
But when he was presented
information to the contrary that


could place him at the scene, he
asked to speak with an attorney.
"We believe it was.premeditated
and the motive was robbery,"
Corder said. No additional
charges are expected. The GCSO
is asking anyone who may have
seen the victim's caprice driving
around Midway on Feb 7 to call
Corder at (850) 627-9233..

By Alice DuPont, Editor


Contempt


An addition to the family


For the past three weeks my family and I
have been on serious baby watch. My neice
carla was expecting her first child and we
were all excited. Carla is the youngest
neice and often said she was going to wait
to have children, if ever. All that changed
soon enough and when the big
announcement was made last year
everyone was excited.
Telephones were ringing across Florida
discussing Carla and Tommy's (her
husband) happy event. She e-mailed photos
of the baby's progress as her stomach grew
and grew and GREW. One day about two
weeks ago, I called to say hello and to ask
her how things were going.
She sounded so exhausted. She said all
she could do is lay around. "I'll just be glad
when the baby comes" was all she really
managed to say. She was ready, but we all
know babies arrive on their own schedule.
Doctors had given her a due date of
Feburary 6 and toward the end she was
beginning to think they were wrong.
Doctors have delivered so many babies
some of them can pinpoint the exact date
With the right information and proper pre-
natal care. They had been adamant about
not finding out the sex of the baby. I really
admire their restraint because they never
faltered under the pressure to "find out
what it is so we'll know what color to buy"
comments.
When I got in from work Tuesday night, I
checked my caller ID and saw her number.
It was so late I decided to wait until the
next day to call her back. Before I could get
around to calling the next morning, my
sister telephone to say she was in the
hospital. Then about 11:30 my brother
called to say, "it's a BOY."

ICes


Like clockwork, or as the doctor
predicted, Chase Alexander Huger arrived
at 11:20 a.m., all 7 pounds, 6 ounces and
21 inches of him. Everything went fine and
mommie and baby were released the next
day to go home and get to know each other
and the rest of the clan. My brother, Carl,
wasn't there for his first grandchild's birth,
but arrived a few hours later driving from
West Palm Beach to Atlanta.
Saturday as I browsed the Valentine's
Day cards at a local store, the cutest little
card caught my eye. It was a my first
Valentine's Day card and it was just what
Chase needed to get as his first piece of
mail. I addressed it to him and off it went. I
haven't bought anything else because Carla
said that some of the newborn clothes he
already had are too small. There was a time
when all you could buy for a boy was ugly
clothes. I heard all that has changed now. I
will start looking in the boy section of the
children's department now.
Monday I got my first e-mail of the little
fella via e-mail. My favorite photo is one of
her looking down at him and him looking
up into her eyes, as if to say hello, pleased
to meet you.
Chase is supposed to be coming to
Quincy soon for us to see him close up and
personal. He was born with a head full of
jet black hair, fat cheeks and a pleasing
disposition as long as he's being held by his
mother. I'm sure he'll grow out of that in
short order.
Anyway, whatever Chase wants to do
right now is fine with me. I'm just so glad
he's here and he's a fine, healthy boy with a
wonderful future ahead of him.
I wonder what he'll be when he grows up.

I don't know if it was fate, star-crossed,
one of those Eros things or just blind luck
that the baseball season for us kicked off
around Valentine's Day every year. We
knew the big league pitchers and catchers
reported to spring training the last of
February and we were determined to get
the jump on them.
Winter hadn't completely gone away, but
there was enough sun to let us shed those
heavy coats. The real games down by the
pajama factory were still a few weeks away
but we could start unlimbering our arms
and practicing our sliding. Hope, truly,
sprang eternal with each coming season!
It was an intrusion into our baseball time
when we had to trudge down to the Ben
Franklin Five and Dime and pick up those
mandatory packages of heart shaped cards.
Every elementary teacher insisted that we
give a Valentine to each member of our
class. What a waste! I'd grab the first pack
on top of the stack and then race over to the
baseball card section and see if the new
1957 Topps had arrived.
By junior high we had mercifully out
grown the "card for every classmate"
philosophy and the baseball preparation
had become more serious. The lines
between genders were becoming more
discernible. And complicated! And we had
to move the bases and fences back as our
. .. h.ll ability grew with each new hair
popping out on our chests.
Valentine's Day, 1961, found me looking
more for a new baseball glove than a girl to
"be mine forever". I was still using a
Revelation model that I bought from
Western Auto way back in grade school.
The thing didn't cost but $2.49 and it had
no lacing in the fingers. It didn't even have
a player's name endorsing it!
I was studying hard on this very matter in
the back of Mrs. Velna Gray Paschall's
history class when Ronald Van Dyke
tapped me on the shoulder and whispered,
"I need your help." Didn't much get by
Mrs. Paschall and she was giving us the
evil eye before I could whisper back.
He caught up with me at lunch. "Kes, I-
uh--ubh, I want---uh-"
"Just spit it out Ronald, I'll kick the
English out of it!" Ronald was a little
reticent about everything but this was
ridiculous!


"Kes, I want to ask Mary Hadley to the
Valentine party at church but I'm afraid to.
You're her best friend. Ya'll live out there
close to each other. Will you ask her for
me?"
Mary Hadley Hayden lived on the farm
next to us. She was o.k., for a girl. She
helped me feed up sometimes. And I'd
hauled many a bale of hay up to that old
barn of Mr. Hayden's. If it got super time
and she was over at the house she'd eat
with us. We grew up swimming in that
pond down behind Archie Moore's place.
She was a decent second baseman. She
could turn the double play, but her arm was
a little weak. She could out run all of us,
except maybe John Ingram. I always
looked at her as one of the boys.
I didn't care if she went to the party with
Ronald or not but I wasn't about to be an
errand boy for nobod-
"Kesley, it would mean a lot to me. I'd do
anything for you if you could talk her into
going with me!"
"Listen, Ronald, I'm not......" I kinda
lost my train of thought. Ronald had an
almost new Rawlings PMM three fingered
baseball glove. It was The Playermaker
model with the "custom crafted" web and a
"hinged pad". And even better, it was the
Stan-The-Man Musial autographed model.
"....... uh, uh, Ronald, tell you what I will
do. You let me borrow your glove for the
whole season and I will see to it that Mary
Hadley goes to the Valentine Party with
you."
I thought it was too silly of an agreement
for words. I knew Ronald wouldn't go
for-
"You've got a deal!" He was pumping
my hand like crazy! "Oh, thank you. Thank
you! I'll run home and get that glove right
now."
Apparently, I had grossly under estimated
the power of that small, naked, winged fat
guy that went around shooting arrows at
different people's hearts this time of year.
I waited for Mary Hadley down where
Stonewall Street ran into Moore Avenue.
She greeted me with that ever present
smile. I knew her well enough to cut right
to the chase. "M. H., how would you like
to go to the Valentine Party with Ronald
Van Dyke?"

The truth about reporters

and rabble-rousers


My son had the nerve to contract a
virulent illness during a hectic workweek
recently, spewing enough bodily fluids to
make me seriously consider calling an
exorcist.
Instead, I called his wonderful
pediatrician, who gave me a list of things
to buy from the drug store that might ease
my son's discomfort and strict instructions
to keep him home, at rest.
So when a local politician recently
requested to see me and proceeded to refer
to a meeting I had missed by saying, "but
you, of course, didn't show up," I had
nary enough time to invite him to sprout
wings and take a running jump of
indeterminate longitude and latitude
before he launched into a grandiose
monologue about his accomplishments.
I wonder about people sometimes.
The guy made several outright attempts
to intimidate me, including a frequent
reference to a contractor with whom he is
affiliated.
In this age of citizen journalism, I later
learned that the contractor has been
publicly accused but not charged with
offering a bribe to a governmental entity
with which he does business. The
assertion comes complete with video.
I'm not sure claiming an association with
that company could further anyone's
political career.
But all too often, political aspirations
and journalistic agendas are revoltingly
intertwined. It happens more often in
small communities like ours.
For instance, this same politician was
called in by a photographer to "straighten
out" a coach who didn't say "how high?"
when the photographer, wanting to
photograph the team, said "jump."
I find the idea of jeopardizing the career
of a man with a family to support over a
photographer's insistence that at his
direction a team be turned out and ready
for photos which went into a special
section that added to that publication's
revenues, by the way abominable.
It's one reason folks are fed up with the
media in general, and one reason why they
should be.
News outlets are increasingly interactive,
giving the most vitriolic critic a chance to
have his or her say about the way things
are run. Outside of government, few

organizations are so available for public
scrutiny, and that's as it should be. It only
makes us better.
It's a far cry from some of the behind-
the-scenes maneuvering journalists with
little talent and less training engage in.
I once worked in a town where the editor
of a small newspaper crept up to the edge
of a professional rival's yard on a regular
basis and eavesdropped on private
conversations the reporter had. Creepy,
yes, but true.
He got his rather sizeable ego wounded
in the process and proceeded to launch an
all-out war that included smearing that
reporter's name telling half-truths and
generating negative attitudes toward the
unsuspecting individual.
Why he didn't get his pants sued off, I
don't know. Character assassination is
good grounds for a lawsuit in any
courtroom.
Another "news" person in that same
-town, yet made a practice of collecting
dirt on local politicians in order to be able
to maintain some sort of control over
them.
She had a relative that worked in the
same school the child of a local politician
attended. When she learned the young
child had been overheard describing her
mother's romantic relationships, she
quickly fed the information to a thriving
local grapevine.
People talk, sure. My own child's
teacher, who cannot seem to remember my
name after nearly a 'yeairof interaction, is,
somehow able to remember the names of
each of the 16 children in her classroom.
I know this because when a little boy in
the class offered a middle-finger salute to
a classmate, she confided to me that he
"doesn't come from a loving home."
The purpose that serves she's got
tidbits like that about others in the class -
is beyond me.
Freedom of speech does not include
liberty to make a town uninhabitable or a
person unemployable.
Let me put it another way: If that's your
goal, you'd better have enough money in
your savings account to bankroll the living
expenses of the person you're trying to tar
and feather.
For the rest of his, her or your natural
life.


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

Victim of I-10 crash dies as a result of injuries


Family seeks cat travelling with



couple at time of accident


by LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor

A woman injured in a wreck
on Interstate 10 last Sunday has
died.
Anna Marie Jane Williams,
32, of Tallahassee died
Wednesday at Tallahassee
Memorial Hospital.
Williams was driving a 1996
Saturn eastbound on 1-10 near
the Greensboro exit Sunday
when a truck driven by James


Burkett, 25, also of Tallahassee,
tried to pass a slower-moving
tractor-trailer and pulled into her
lane.
Williams' husband, Aaron
Lee Williams, 31, was a passen-
ger in her car, as was the cou-
ple's cat, Persephone. The cou-
ple was returning to Tallahassee
from a trip to Pensacola, Mr.
Williams' father, Allen
Williams, said.
Mrs. Williams was an
accountant in Tallahassee; Mr.


Williams is working toward a
master's degree in physics at
Florida State University. Both
are graduates of the University
of West Florida.
After Burkett pulled into her
lane, Mrs. Williams veered to
the left to try to avoid a collision
but over-corrected when steer-
ing her car back to the right,
according to Florida Highway
Patrol reports, causing her car to
cross over into the outside east-
bound 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 Mrs. Williams and
came to a final rest in a cement
ditch, upright, facing north.
Family members would like
to find the couple's cat, and are ,
asking anyone with information
to call 850-525-2475 or 850-
341-9222.
Visitation for Anna Marie
Jane Williams will be Saturday
from 1-3 p.m. at Harper Morris
Memorial Funeral Home on
2276 Airport Blvd. in Pensacola.
Funeral services are scheduled
for 3 p.m. Saturday.


Relatives of a woman killed in a wreck on Interstate 10 would
like help in locating her cat. The cat's name is Persephone; if you
have seen her, please call 850-525-2475 or850-341-9222. (Photo sub-

Congressman Boyd holds district healthcare council meeting




Representatives from across North Florida discuss healthcare issues


Congressman Allen Boyd (D-
North Florida) recently hosted a
meeting with the District
Healthcare Council to discuss
local and regional healthcare
issues, federal appropriations
requests for the upcoming fiscal
year, and North Florida's rural
hospitals. Representatives from
all 16 counties in Congressman
Boyd's congressional district were


at the meeting to express the
healthcare concerns and needs of
their respective counties.
"There was a productive dia-
logue and a good exchange of
ideas at the meeting, and I am
hopeful that we can better serve
the healthcare needs of North
Floridians by bringing the district
together like we did here today,"
said Congressman Boyd. "The


District Healthcare Council focus-
es on regional problem solving,
allowing our counties to come
together and pool their resources
to improve the overall quality of
healthcare in North Florida. I have
always said that when neighboring
counties and communities of inter-
est come together, it's a good
thing."
At the meeting, Congressman


Boyd encouraged members of the
District Healthcare Council to
consider the healthcare concerns
of surrounding counties in addi-
tion to their individual concerns.
Congressman Boyd also talked to
the counties about working more
closely with the business commu-
nity and state and local agencies in
order to make them active partici-
pants in achieving the healthcare


goals of North Florida.
Congressman Boyd formed the
District Healthcare Council in
2005 to tackle healthcare issues
locally. The District Healthcare
Council is comprised of 26 repre-
sentatives from 16 counties across
North Florida. Gadsden County is
represented by Max Martinez of
the Gadsden Health Council.
"The District Healthcare


Council assembles people from all
different professions and points of
view so that the discussions and
solutions will be comprehensive
and representative of our unique
district," Boyd stated. "This type
of collaborative effort will help us
better match resources with need
and make quality, affordable
healthcare available to the people
of North Florida."

City tells attorney price tag too high; will revisit matter of pay


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

Quincy City Attorney Jack
McLean was asked again
Tuesday night to come back to
the city commission with a con-
tract they could approve in two
weeks. Two weeks ago he was


$


given the same instructions and
Tuesday night was told that his
price tag is too high.
While the discussion
whirled around the commission
table about McLean's fees, it
was late in the discussion
before it surfaced that Mclean
had not been paid since last

McLean, in an addendum to
his current contract, said he

a retainer and $292 per hour for
those things not covered by the
retainer. He spelled out those
things that would be covered by

McLean said that he was

to partner until finances are bet-
ter.
"This contract is probably
going to be much more expen-
sive for the city structured this
way," said Commissioner
Derrick Elias, adding "in my
opinion I don't think we can
afford you at this rate."
Commissioner Andy Gay
chimed in and said citizens had
been coming up to him saying
that the city is paying the attor-
ney too much money. He won-
dered if the city was getting
what it was paying for in terms
of legal representation.
McLean, who works for the
law firm of Holland and Knight
said the city was getting the
skill level and depth of research
from the firm that has hundreds
of lawyers. He said that the city


has a myriad of service such as
gas, oil, and telecommunica-
tions that require different legal
expertise.
"Can we afford you?
Looking at our population, I
don't know if we can afford you
or him (the city manager)" Gay
said, adding "we've got to get
this city back within our
means."
Mayor Keith Dowdell said
the city could not get the kind
of representation or expertise in
any other attorney for what
McLean's is being paid. He said
Gretna pays its attorney more
than McLean. "We ought to be.
ashamed," he said.
"Not only does he give serv-
ice he gives back to the com-
munity. It seems like you
already have an attorney in


mind. If you do, put it on the
table," he said.
Commissioner Sherrie
Taylor said she would like to
see McLean met with each
Commissioner individually, get
their feelings on an acceptable
budget for the department to
come up with a contract the
commission could accept.
"We have negotiated and this
is your best offer?" Elias asked.
Elias was ready to vote on
McLean's fate and made a
motion to do so, but it died for
lack of a second to the motion.
That's when Commissioner
Taylor made the motion to
come back with a contract at
possibly a lower dollar amount
in two weeks.
The motion passed 3-2 with
Elias and Cook voting against

demand
stated.
When


from PEF," the, letter
asked about the


agreement, Bogan said he had
made no agreement with
Progress Energy and that he had
not signed any documents
committing the payment in four
installments. The letter was
signed by Robert D. Nickum,
Director (of) Origination,
Account Management & Cogen
for Progress Energy.
Bogan said he had never
spoken with Nickum and had
never made an agreement with
him contrary to the wording that
the letter was sent to "confirm"
the agreement.
"The only person from


Progress Energy I have spoken
with is Kim Futch," Bogan said.
When Commissioner Derrick
Elias asked Bogan if he had a
plan to pay the money, he said
the cost would be passed along
to the customers. Bogan said the
city's Progress Energy bill runs
about $10 million dollars per
years and that the adjusted
amount is only about four
percent.
This should not happen again,
Bogan said, because under the
new contract with progress
Energy the city will be charged
for actual usage.

Commissioner Finley Cook
asked who validated Progress
Energy's amounts at the end of
the year and how do we know
that we have used that amount of
fuel over the budget billing
amount.
In other matters:
*Ron Thompson of Watson
Rice auditing firm distributed a
preliminary 2006 audit report
and promised the actual audit
would be ready in two weeks.
But the lack of an audit has
caused problems for some city
employees. Commissioner Elias
said that the audit was affecting
the officer's pension fund
because of an incomplete audit.
Elias also asked whether or not
anything would change in the
preliminary audit and the official
audit which he promised to get
to commissioners in two weeks,
Thompson said nothing
significant.
"Have we put out the Request
For Proposal (RFP) for a new
auditing firm?" Elias asked.
Bogan said the RFP had gone out
Monday.
Commissioner Andy Gay,
addressing his comments to
Bogan, said he was not pleased
with the lack of audits in a
timely manner.
Bogan said when he was hired
he asked the commission to give
him two years to get the city's
financial house in order and that
he had not been employed by the
city as manager/finance director
for two years yet.
*Commissioner Elias requested
a list of positions in city
.government that have not been
filled but funds had been set
aside in the budget. In all
$754,960 is in the budget for
positions that not been filled.
"We're not funding positions
(because) we're trying to get
caught up on our bills," Bogan
said.
"We either need these positions
or we don't," Elias responded.
Bogan said he didn't
necessarily agree with Elias'
assessment and that the financial
situation of the city calls for belt
tightening and one way to do
that is to not fill positions.
"If you have a car and you
don't drive that car for a year, I
can conclude that you dln't need
that car.," Elias said.
*'Progress Energy presented the
East High School Gadsden
Chorus with a $500 check to
help with the student's expenses
to perform at Carnegie Hall in
April.

Jaguars claim district title Schebtle


BASKETBALL


Now set to host Pensacola in Regionals Thursday


Coach Demetric Salters felt
winning the District 2-4A boy's
basketball tournament at Rickards
Saturday night, "Was a great
accomplishment." "I know we
were expected to win it, but you
still have to hope your team plays
together and gets the job done."
DSalters continued. "And even
though we went through it unde-
feated, it was a very competitive
district and it's gradifying to win
it."


The Jaguars won it in fine style
and remained unbeaten for the
year as they bested Rickards 63-
45 on the Raiders home court
Saturday night.
Rickards was playing without
star point guard Anthoney Salter
and the Raiders had trouble con-
tining with East Gadsden espe-
cially inside where the "Mc
Attack" duo of Sam McLaurin
and Rashard McGill took center
stage mainly in the third quarter


when the Jaguars used a 22-8
margin to pull away. McLaurin
put in 26 points and pulled down
10 rebounds and McGill hit 13
points and claimed 10 boards.
Kelvin Delricco added 12 points
and Leonardo Deloney 10.
East Gadsden got into the
finals with a Friday night win
over Godby by a 72-52 score.
The Jaguars had a 29-17 half-
time lead in that one before zip-
ping through the second half.


McLaurin put in 21 points in
Friday's game and Derrico hit 15.
McGill added 10.
The Jaguars take a 26-0 record
into the Region 1 tournament
which starts Thursday. East
Gadsden host 24-3 Pensacola
High at 7pm in the opening
round.
"Pensacola High has a very big
and athletic team." Salters said.
"We'll have our hands full, but I
expect us to be ready to play."


Lady Panthers take round one in playoffs


Round one of the state series
playoff system was taken by the
West Gadsden Lady Panthers
with a 47-37 defeat of Maclay on
Thursday night at the West
Gadsden gym.
Maclay's patient and deliber-
ate style threw the Panthers off
for at least the first quarter.
Maclay lead 10-7 entering the
second period. West Gadsden


found a new pace and outscored
the Marauders 13-6 to lead by six
at the half. The Panthers contin-
ued to win each of the next two
quarters, even if it was just a lit-
tle bit each time. More impor-
tantly, by the, time the final
buzzer had. sounded, West
Gadsden had a ten point lead and
the 2A Region 1 quarterfinal vic-
tory.


No surprise that senior super
shooter, Tyeshia Battles, lead all
scorers with 22 points. She also
turned in a fine all-around game
with 13 rebounds, five assists
and seven steals. Freshman
Kayla Streeter also hit in double
digits with 11 points and Jasmine
Charleston helped out with eight
rebounds.
The 17-11 West Gadsden


team hosted 22-4 North Florida
Christian on Tuesday night.
NFC can give West Gadsden
credit for one of those four losses
as the two teams split during the
regular season.
The winner of that game
moves on to semifinal action and
will play the winner of Ponce de
Leon and Cottondale on
Saturday.


EGHS girls gone after regional quarterfinals


The East Gadsden girl's bas-
ketball team is in the rare position
of having their season end after
only one round of the FHSAA
state series playoffs. The Jaguar
team, winners of Class 4A District
2, hosted a strong Pensacola
Washington team (19-6) in
Region 1 quarterfinals.
Washington had lost to undefeat-
ed and top ranked Pensacola High


(24-0) in district finals.
The game was a low scoring,
methodical game which did not
play well into the plans of the
uptempo Jaguars. The halftime
score was 19-19 and the low scor-
ing was something the Jags could
have overcome, had they made
better than 43% of their free
throws. The team finished 7 of
16 from the free throw line.


The Jaguars were lead in scor-
ing by junior Jasmine Grice with
16 points. No other Jaguar player
reached double figures but
Patricia Drayton chipped in 9
points and pulled down seven
rebounds.
Coach Chariya Davis made
this observation after the disap-
pointing loss, "Washington was a
more experienced and patient


team, especially on offense. We
also did not handle their man to
man half court defense well and
that lead to a lot of turnovers."
The loss ended Coach Davis'
inaugural season of Lady Jaguar
basketball with a 22-4 record.
The team returns leading scor-
er, junior Jasmine Grice, but loses
three seniors Drayton, Dytesha
Francis and Audrey Unaka.

Parramnore Lions will find them-
selves hosting a first round region-
al basketball play-off game
Thursday night after they won the
District 3-1A Tournament played
in Aucilla last this past Saturday
night.
The Lions used an 18-8 first
quarter run to kick-start a 66-57
win over FAMU High in the finals
after they had defeated Munroe
71-35 in the semi-finals Friday
night.
It was a balanced attack for C-
P against FAMU as all five starters
scored in double figures. Antron
Johnson led the way with 17
points, he also pulled down 22
rebounds, and had 8 blocked
shots. Fellow starters Eric
Williams, Detonte White,
Valdamir Card, and Reginald
Johnson weren't far behind.
Williams scored 14, ripped down

MEGA TENT EVENT IN QUINCY -

SHOWING CONSUMERS THE RIGHT

WAY TO BUY NOW!

FEDERAL RATE CUT PROVIDES UNPRECEDENTED LENDING
OPPORTUNITY; CONSUMERS ADVISED TO BUY VEHICLES
BEFORE RECESSION

FED RATE CUT PROVIDES UNPRECEDENTED OPPORTUNITY FOR CONSUMERS
The U.S. Federal Reserve boosted consumer hopes and comforted Wall Street investors by slashing interest rates by
three-quarters of a percentage point to 3.5 percent in an effort to save the economy from a recession. The economic
stimulus plan represented the largest single-day cut in a key interest rate in 25 years. The historic interest rate cut
was designed to encourage consumer spending and energize the nation's economy. Shortly after the Fed announced
a reduction of its federal funds rate to 3.5 percent from 4.25 percent, most major banks reduced their prime lend-
ing rates by the same amount. Since the Fed rate affects how much consumers pay on credit card debt, home equity
lines of credit and auto loans, economists predict that consumers' monthly debt obligations should slide along with
the rate cut. For consumers, the three-quarter point federal funds rate cut will mean lower interest rates on credit
purchases, including those of automobiles. According to Ford CEO Alan Mulally, the rate cut "gives the auto financ-
ing companies the ability to really bring some more credit into the marketplace...it's going to help consumer confi-
dence". This means that if you buy a car in the next few months, the payments will be substantially lower than they
would have been without this drop. Moreover, the rate reduction will allow manufacturers to offer financing incen-
tive programs to prospective new-car buyers at lower interest rates.
DEALERS DESPERATE TO SELL VEHICLES As Little as a $99/month!*
The current opportunity to obtain low interest rate consumer loans comes at a time when dealers are desperate mov-
ing to sell vehicles through unprecedented rebate and incentive programs. Prior to the historic cut in the Federal Re-
serve's rate cut, automobile dealerships had suffered due to the rumored housing slump and rising gasoline prices.
Moreover, competition between foreign and domestic manufacturers has reached an epic pitch, giving consumers
leverage when shopping for new vehicles. GM, Ford and Chrysler have been forced to boost incentives to, maintain
sales volume amid weak consumer confidence and increased competition from foreign manufacturers.
CONSUMERS ADVISED TO BUY NOW BEFORE LOOMING RECESSION CAUSES SPIKE IN
INTEREST RATES.
The current rate cut has provided consumers a unique, limited opportunity to obtain low interest loans. Consum-
ers are advised to take advantage of this historic lending opportunity before the looming recession arrives. Indeed, a
spike in the federal funds rate coupled with write-offs from the housing slump may impact banks' willingness to lend.
Should a recession occur later in the year, consumers shall face a much more difficult time getting auto loans due to
more stringent credit standards. Thus, the current fed rate cut may provide consumers with the best opportunity to ob-
tain advantageous vehicle financing. Terry Egan, editor in chief of publications for The Warren Group, which tracks
real-estate transactions, agreed, pointing to the combined benefits of lower prices and lower short-term interest rates.
"For someone ready to make the leap, that's two bits of good news in terms of buying opportunity," he said.







LOWER INTEREST RATE + NO MONEY DOWN PROGRAMS +
LOWER PAYMENTS = TIME TO BUY NOW!
Every vehicle in inventory will be clearly marked with its drastically lowered price or payment. Bank representatives will
be available to assist 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.
The Quincy Tent Sale will be fully staffed February 12 17, 2008 as attendance is expected to be in record breaking num-
bers. As with most special sales, the selection will diminish throughout the event so come early to take full advantage of
the entire inventory available.

The Gadsden County Times February 14, 2008 11


42 years later, the flame still burns for Johnsons


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

You never know when you're
going to find love or when or
where it will find you. That's
what happened 42 years ago
when Algaqua Johnson met and
married her husband the Rev.
Josephus Johnson in Perry.
The Johnsons now make their



Internet


home in Gadsden County.
Tuesday morning Mrs. Johnson
was at the Gadsden Senior
Citizens Center when the con-
versations turned to Valentine's
Day and remembering love.
You're never to old to feel
romantic love, according to soci-
ologists.
As Johnson started to tell her
story, her face lit up like a 16-
year-old talking about her first
crush to he best girlfriends. As
she told her love story, the
women around her smiled and
nodded, no doubt remembering


their first encounter with
romance.
Johnson said she was working
at a sawmill in her hometown of
Perry when a guy who had been
trying to date her told her he
wanted her to come to his church
and meet the new minister.
"I told him I didn't want to
meet his minister becasue I was a
Baptist and he was a AME
(African Methodist Episcopal),"
she said.
The freind kept asking her to
go to church with him thinking
that he could get the minister to


help him in his quest to get
Algaqua's attention and affec-
tion.
One Sunday morning, as she
got ready for church, the man
came by her house to give her a
ride to his church. Tired of his
persistence she gave in and
joined him at his church.
"I went to church with him
and he introduced me to his min-
ister. The minsiter asked me if he
could call me sometime and I
said 'yes" he was tall, good look-
ing, and seemed nice. He didn't
waste anytime and that same


night he called. That was 42
years ago," she said.
Her minister beau lived in
Pensacola and travelled to
church on weekends. The eligi-
ble women in Perry flocked to
see the new and single minister.
"On our first date we went out
for ice cream. There were a lot of
women around Perry who had an
eye on him, he was good looking
you know," she said.
The pair talked on the tele-
phone a lot and one day he called
to ask her what she was doing.
He wanted her to meet him in


Tallahassee. She wondered why
he wanted her to come to:
Tallahassee and her curiosity got
he best of her so she decided to
met him. What he wanted, she
found out, was to ask her to be
his wife.
"I liked him a lot and but I had
children so I had to really think
about it. Then he told me that he
already knew I had children and
that he wanted to be a father to
my children, too. That was it
because he wanted me and my
children. That's when I knew he
loved me," she said.

twice and lost it twice as they
played an 8-8 tied baseball game

Panthers second in 3-2A

The West Gadsden Panthers couldn't derail Port St. Joe's 15th straight
district championship as they fell to the Sharks 61-51 Saturday night in

Panthers led 23-20 at the break. St. Joe went on a 21-9 run in the third
quarter and Wdst Gadsden never could recover. Ramon Beard and
Ricardo Clemmons combined for 38 of the Sharks points with Beard

Panthers' Lowery
homers in loss

Damian Lowery had two hits
including a home run and pitched
4 tough innings but the West
Gadsden Panthers couldn't deny
Cottondale a 14-4 baseball win in
Cottondale Tuesday.
Lowery singled and scored in
the first inning to give the Panthers
a 1-0 lead. Cottondale got 2 in the
first to go ahead, before


Shermonta Hollis, got the first of
his 2 hits in the second and scored
to tie it for West Gadsden. The
game stayed tied until Cottondale
got 3 third inning runs to take a 5-
2 lead. Hollis' second hit led to a
fourth inning East Gadsden run
before the Hornets scored 3 in the
bottom of the inning making it 8-
3. Lowery's homer came in the
fifth cutting the lead to 8-4, but
Cottondale scored 2 in the fifth
and 4 in the sixth to win by the
mercy rule.


Winning pitcher, Pat Fresatore
pitched a 7 hitter and struck out 4
for the Hornets. Joe Farren had 4
hits and Ron Shores and Vincent
Bender 2 hits each for the victors.
It was Cottondales first regular
season game. "It was good to start
the year with a win." Hornet coach
Greg Olyer said. "The team has
been working hard and we are
excited about the season."
West Gadsden opened their
season Monday night with an 11-4
home loss to Blountstown.


Lowery had 2 hits in that
game and Brandon Moore had a
pair of rbi's.
"We've done some good things
in our first two games." Panther
coach King Lewis said. "But
we've done some bad things espe-
cially in the field." Lewis contin-
ued.
"We are very young and are
looking for the right chemistry."
West Gadsden's next game is
Friday when they host Bethleham
at Therrell Field in Chattahoochee.

Sorority continuing to provide service to the community for a century


National profile
Historically, before there was
help from governments and
before there were regional and
county charities designed to help
those in need, communities took
care of their own.'Those in need
looked to the church, benevolent
societies and fraternal
organizations for help.
Historically black greek letter
organizations, referred to as
fraternitites and sororities, have
also stepped up to take their
places as the largest and most
enduring organizations in the
black community.
One such fraternal organization
is Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority,
Inc. (AKA). This year, the
nation's oldest sorority will
celebrate 100 years of service to
mankind. Alpha Kappa Alpha
Sorority was founded in Janurary
1908 on the campus of Howard
University in Washington, DC by
10 women conscious of their
privileged positions as college-
trained women of color, some one
generation removed from slavery.
These women were in the
vanguard of social change and
made significant contributions to
the social reform movement,
political, and moral issues that
characterized life in the United
States as it affected the black
community. The contributions of
all historically black greek letter
organizations is significant and
and is attributed to major
advancements in education and
civil rights.
"The first time I saw fraternity
men was as a child when I went
to my first college football game.
I was so impressed with how they
looked, I made up my mind then
that I was going to college and
that I was going to belong to a
fraternity," said Walter Kelly, a
member of Alpha Phi Alpha
Fraternity, the brother
organization of Alpha Kappa


Alpha Sorority which was
founded in 1906 at Cornell
University and is the oldest black
fraternity. I
Dr. Martin Luther King. Jr. was
a member of the fraternity as well
as Supreme Court Justice
Thurgood Marshall and gadden
County native Dr. LaSalle
Leffall.
To understand the impact of
organizations such as AKA, it
important to remember the
political and social climate in the
nation that prompted their
development and their mission.
In the early 1900s, when the
nation upheld a climate of racial
injustice, inequality, and separate
but "un-equal" schools, college
students began creating new
boundaries for themselves and
those like them. Greek letter
organizations was one way to
meet those challenges they and
their community faced.
AKA's founding mothers were
committed to nurturing and
developing leadership skills
among women, fostering
education, promoting job skills,
encouraging political activity
through voting and seeking
office, and supporting the family.
In keeping with the organization's
creed "to provide service to
mankind" members participate in
number of projects where they
reached out to seniors, cancer
patients and respond to the needs
of the community.
Led by international president
Barbara McKinzie, thousands of
women gathered in Washington,
DC for a pilgrimage, to
commemorate the sorority's first
100 years.
"The sorority has endured
because of the conviction of our
founders who build on a bedrock
of strength. The conviction of our
founders to create an orgnaization
dedicated to service has enabled
AKA to thrive through ten

decades," McKinzie said.
AKA is comprised on over
200,000 women worldwide with
950 chapters. Members represent
a diverse gropu from educators ot
heads of state, politicians,
lawyers, medical professionals,
media personalities an decision
makers of major corporations.
Graduate members make up the
largest percentage of
membership.
Some of the women of AKA
include Florida Supreme Court
Justice Peggy Quince, Astronaut
Dr. Mae Jamieson, and opera
singer Marian Anderson, Former
first lady Eleanor Roosevelt was
an honorary member of AKA.

Local chapter
The local chapter of Alpha
Kappa Alpha, Tau Theta Omega,
was chartered on Febrpary 15,
1992. The first president of the
chapter was the late Willie Ruth
Williams. Williams and local
educator Mildred Franklin are
credited with being the spark
plugs that got the local chapter
started. Franklin said she and
Williams, who were both veteran
members of the organization,
talked about the need for a
chapter in Gadsden County to
address local needs.
"We talked about forming a
localchapter during trips to AKA
meetings and workshops. We, and
several others, belonged to the
Tallahassee chapter (Delta Kappa
Omega) but we felt our needs
here were great and the
organization's platforms addressed
many of our local needs,"
Franklin said.
So, in 1990, Williams and
Franklin started recruiting
Gadsden County AKAs who were
no longer active in a graduate
chapter and persuaded them to re-
activate their membership in the
organization.
"We started with a terrific group


of women. Before we received
our official charter from the
national office (in Chicago) we
had to demonstrate a need for a
chapter. Some of problems we
addressed early included tutoring,
support senior citizen programs,
infant mortality and children
issues, voter registration,
focusing on young males and
their growth," Franklin said.
The first meeting to begin the
task of forming a chapter was
held at Williams' home on
Sunday afternoon, September 30,
1990. Those attending the.first
meeting were: Franklin, Linda
Palmer-Douglas, Katie Clements,
Gloria Daniels, Phyllis Young
Nottage, Sandra grant, Alice
DuPont, Stephanie Moore, and
Tanya Bradwell. In the coming
weeks, others joined the group.
Those were: Roxanne Johnson,
Annette Smith, Gleycia Green,
Pauline Gunn, Mary Gunn-
Salters, Margie Wade and
Evonski Lowe. These women,
two years later, became the
charter members of Gadsden
County's first AKA chapter.
The organization wasted no
time addressing issues. The first
project was the opening of the
AKAademy was at Stewart Street
Elementary School. Members
spent Saturday mornings helping
students with homework and
assisting in tutoring. During the
first year, and the tradition still
continues today, Thanksgiving
baskets were given to families in
Chattahoochee, Greensboro,
Quincy, Havana and Midway.
Members also purchased gloves
and hats for senior citizens during
the winter and held a spring
fashion show. A teen charm and
etiquette program was begun for
girls and a group called "Knights
of Distinction" was formed to
address teen male issues.
"One hundred years is a
significant milestone for our


~,


~4 W~w~ b~ I ~4


organization. As a service
organization we have continued
the work of the national
organization's projects on a local
level. We face new challenges
today but one of the important
things to remember is that Alpha
Kappa Alpha changes its
programs as the societal needs
change and Tau Theta Omega has
changed its programs too," said
Tanya Bradwell, current local
president.
The Isit of charities the
organization has financially
supported include the American
Cancer Society, March of Dimes,
Refuge House, Big Bend cares,
Sickel Cell Anemia Foundation,
Literacy Volunteers of America,
Gadsden Citizens for Health
Babies, and more.
With all of the projects the
chapter has supported over the
past 15 years, perhaps the most
important is the thousands of
dollars that many high school
students have received to help
them further their educations.
Franklin guessed that over
$50,000 alone has been given in
the form of cash scholarships.
To raise funds for the
scholarship members the
organizations holds it's annual
Western Dance in the winter. This
year, for the first time, the
organization's signature
fundraiser will be the Junior Miss
Cotillion open to girls between
the ages of 10 and 14 years old.
"We felt that we-needed to do
something special to celebrate
our centennial year. We will hold
our first cotillion on May 10,"
said chairperson Mary Bailey.
The theme of the cotillion is
"Celebrating Our Centennial: An
Evening of Pink Elegence." The
organizations colors are salmon
pink and apple green.

Today
The local chapter will kick off


its celebration of 100 years of
service locally with a reception
Sunday, Feb. 24. Bradwell said
that in addition to the social
events, the organization will host
various workshops and seminars
throughout the county aimed at
the meeting the new platforms
that have been adopted as he
national agenda. The new
agenda is AKAs response to te
contemporary needs of the Black
community.
Citizens will be asked to
participate in the following
iniatives:
*Non-traditional entrepreneur
program is aimed women and
their economic survival.
*Economic keys to success is
expanding economic
development into a global
frontier. Women must be poised
to compete on the world market
by doing so, the living standards
of the Black community will be
stimulated.
*Economic growth of the Black
family is important because the
strength of the black community
hinges in the viability of the
family, if the family foundation is
week, the larger society structure
will be week.
*Education al advancement
through technology. Technology
must be masteredif there is any
hope of economic educational
advancement.
*Health resources management
to help maintain the physical and
mental health of the community.
"There is a lot to do. but as a 25
year member of the organization,
I can assure you that the women
of Tau Theta Omega are up to the
challenge to help move Gadsden
County and it's citizens forward,"
Bradwell said.
There are currently 25 memebrs
of the local chapter and between
them there are nearly 500 years of
combined membership is Alpha
Kappa Alpha, Sorority, Inc.

verse of the week ,:
And Jesus went into the temple of God, and cast out all them that sold and bought in the
temple, and overthrew the money changers, and the seats of them that sold doves,
Matthew 21:12 (KJV)

God had always wanted the
people to reverence the temple and
the things of God. Jesus said, "The
scriptures declare, 'My Temple will
Sbe called the house of prayer, 'but
v you have turned into a den of
thieves,"'
In those clays the Jews had to
bring in a sacrifice in order for their
Iins to be rolled away until the next
year. Peop le were bringing animals
and they were buying and selling
them to different ones who came to
sacrifice and that was not the way
God wanted it. God wanted the
people to bring first of their flocks
to be sacrificed.

B 4 The Gadsden County Times February 14, 2008


7 1, (t I Valentine's Day, which occurs every February 14, is a
l1 holiday that celebrates love in the United States and in
< many other countries around the world, including England
and France The origins of Valentine's Day are attributed
to a Ca3iholic priest, known today as Valentine. Valentine
lived in the time of the Roman Empire under Emperor
St Claudius Claudius frowned upon marriage and so he
S. .... warned it Priest Valentine disobeyed the emperor's
ilorders and married couples anyway. Valentine was
murdered on February 14 for violating the law. The priest was canonized into sainthood
for his contributions to the institution of marriage. What we know as Valentine's Day was
bom in the late middle ages. Catholic feasts in celebration of the martyred priest began
the traditional celebration of love.
Although Saint Valentine contributed to the creation of Valentine's Day, many cultures have
attributed the middle of February to the celebration of love. Ancient Athenians celebrated the
marriage of Hera and Zeus during what is now mid-February. The Ancient Romans also had
a festival called Lupercalia on the 15th day of February that was associated with the celebration
of love. Lupercus was the Roman God of Fertility. Valentine's Day has also been attributed to the
teachings of Valentinius, a Christian philosopher from Rome. Some believe the Roman roots of
Valentine's Day are merely myths and attribute the true origin of the day to the traditional mating of
doves on February 14 in England and France in the 14th Century. No matter the true origins of
Valentine's Day, it is one of the most popular holidays in today's society. e C i
