Gadsden County native Rebecca
Gaines began her career in law
enforcement.
These days, she's more interested in
detecting student attitudes and
aptitudes. That's one reason the 35-
year-old Havana Middle School
teacher was named Teacher of the Year
by her district peers.
I actually was in law enforcement for
three years," she said. "After being
there and hearing so many stories
about, 'If only someone had been there
to tell me ...' I wanted to make a
difference. I've always had an attitude
of servitude. I show students their
strengths and their weaknesses. I show
them they can achieve anything."

Civil rights activist tells students of trials and

William Brodie leaned lightly against a
teacher's desk in a Stewart Street
Elementary classroom.
He could explain being in jail, could even
explain being in the same cell as Dr. Martin
Luther King Jr. and joking around with
former president Dwight Eisenhower.


But segregation was a little hard to grasp
for the 8-10-year-old set'- at least the kind
that existed in his youth, when African-
Americans were forbidden to drink from the
same water fountain as whites, eat in the
same restaurant or shop in the same stores.
"The jail system in Atlanta would not let
white and black people be in jail together.

Tornado

No injuries reported in
Monday morning storms

By LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor
A tornado swept through the western portion of
Gadsden County in the early morning hours of Feb. 18,
overturning a tractor-trailer on Interstate 10, uprooting
trees, downing power lines, and completely destroying
one house while removing the roof of another.
Tallahassee National Weather Service meteorologists
believe the tornado touched down around 1:08 a.m. Feb.
18 on 1-10, near mile marker 168 and Chattahoochee.
See TWISTER on Page 11


Above, Talquin Electric crews work to restore power in the Mt. Pleasant.area Monday morning
after what was described as a tornado sliced through the area, leaving fallen trees, such as the one
at right, in its wake. The massive oak just missed a house on Mt Pleasant Rd north of Blue Star
Highway when the twister moved through the area during the early morning hours of Feb 18.

Contemplation




Getting from here to there


If you don't have personal transportation
getting around can be brutal. This fact
came home to me a few weeks back when
I had to leave my car for about half a day
to be serviced. It was only a few hours
but I felt stranded and disconnected from
the world.
It was a weekday but I wasn't worried
about getting to work. I only live a few
blocks from the office and if need be I
could have walked it in about 15 minutes
maximum. But lazy me, I didn't feel like
walking. My decision was to hitchhike. I
live on a fairly busy corner and I know
practically everybody on my side of town.
When I stepped outisde, I still wasn't
worried, I was sure someone I knew
would come along in a few minutes. After
all, on any given day, I wave to passersby
three or four times a minute.
That wasn't the case this time. For the
first five minutes not a single car passed
my house. Then, when the traffic picked
up I didn't know anyone who passed and I
wasn't about to flag down one of those
young boys with spinning wheels and
blasting music.
Eventually, about 30 minutes later, I got
a ride to the office but it made me realize
just how isolated I was without
transportation. My circumstances were of
my own making and only for a short time.
But imagine how people feel who have no
way to get from point A to point B on any
given day unless prior and painstaking


arrangements have been made.
When you have transportation it's easy
to take it for granted. When you want to
go someplace, whether it's the store or the
doctor, you hop in you vehicle and go.
But what about those who don't have that
luxury?
The county has a transportation
provider, Big Bend Transit, but recent
budget cuts have put many of it's regular
customers in jeopardy. Last month Big
Bend Transit announced that because of
the high cost of fuel amd reduced
funding, the company has had to cut back
on services.
County Commissioner Brenda Holt said
she frequently gets calls from people who
worry that they will not be able to make
doctor's appointments or get to jobs or
shcool on time. To their credit the Board
of County Commissioners passed a
resolution, which is all they could do,
asking the State to use emergency funds
to make up for the high cost of fuel.
This is an emergency and hopefully the
Department of Transportation will see
that this is a real hardship on rural
citizens in general and the senior citizens
in particular. For some seniors, it may be
a life or death situation because their
doctors are in Tallahassee. With no other
means of transportation, putting those
funds in place is not something that
should be debated or put on the back
burner. Our people need help now.


We have a guy running for President
named Ron Paul. Two first names! I know
John Earl Carl must be pleased. John Earl
took a lot of heat from us back in junior
high for not having a last name. We called
him Johnson, and sometimes Williams, and
Jones.....since he was sans a proper
surname, we "gave" him one.....
I don't think it is politically correct to do
that anymore. Sadly, nicknames have gone
the way of the dinosaur. I blame that on
t.v., fast food restaurants and computer
games. We've just sped up too much!
Nobody wants to pause for the time it takes
to "come up with" the perfect moniker for
a fellow conspirator. It has not always been
thus.....
Larry Ridinger's voice would go up an
octave, or three, when he was excited,
frightened or trying to tell us Mr. Warren
was coming around the corner and we'd
better stick those milk soaked pieces of
rolls in our mouths! We had been gently
tossing them in the general direction of
Wanda Black and Nola Purcell.
We named Larry, "Squeaky". There was
nothing derogatory about it. We were not
making fun of him. As a matter of fact, he
was one of our best friends. He had "come
by" his name honestly. And listen, we just
didn't call him Squeaky, he was Squeaky!
In lieu of the aforementioned devices that
now occupy most of our thinking time we
had eons of dead space to ponder, discuss
and formulate an epithet that would befit
the honoree. A lot of our nicknames came
forth over a malted shake and some fries
from the back booth at Frank's Dairy Bar.
We studied on it. The name had to fit. And
be unique to the individual. It was too
important to be rushed or chosen
flippantly.
Some came easy. Bobby Brewer was our
catcher in little league. Yogi Berra caught
for the perennial world champion New
York Yankees. Bobby became "Yogi". We
all loved the St. Louis Cardinals but their
catcher was named Hal Smith. This wasn't
rocket scientist type stuff.
Some were a little harder. Nancy Carol
Jackson would come down from Michigan
every summer and stay with her
grandparents. She was very nice looking
and friendly. And, after eyeing Jane Hill
and Ruth Ann Wiley for a whole year, we
were ready for a change. We couldn't call
her "Yank" or "Buckeye", that was way


too obvious. We were on our third round of
chocolate shakes and had gone through
, "Hot lips"(Buddy-whose real name was
James Edward Wiggleton-vetoed that one
because we had no definite proof),
"Buffy", "High Chin"(she tilted her head
upward a mite), "Dial O"(she came from
long distance), "N. C.", "Jacks"...... when
Ricky mentioned "Pretty Woman". It was,
of course, a hot record at the time by Roy
Orbison.
We ordered-another Tound and figured to
call a pretty girl Pretty Woman would be a
bit much. She was too short for "Legs".
And she had no real distinguishing marks
or scars. We settled on "Roy". Nancy Carol
seemed to really like it. And it stuck. She
was Roy for the rest of her summers with
us. I went out with her a couple of times
but it didn't work out. I couldn't hold
hands with anybody named Roy!
Sometimes the nickname stated the
obvious whether we liked it or not. James
"Birddog" Reed had several dogs when he
was growing up and he liked to hunt.
It was a lot more fun to go the opposite
way. Biff Hooker was so proud of his G. I,
haircut. We named him "Shag". Mary E.
Pendleton had a tendency to hover a little
on the large size. For our junior class float
we tied red and gray streamers to her arms
and legs and stuck her in the parade
between the eight grade homecoming
queen and the FFA wagon. We
affectionately called her "Olive Oyl".
Graham Reynolds could be a little wild at
times. He attacked life head on with all
engines wide open. I hated to tackle him in'
football. He would run all over you. And
laugh as he helped you up! He was so full
of sheer joy. He had more tales about
people and places, love and fortune than
you could shake a stick at. He was truly
brilliant in an unbridled sort of way. His
nickname was "Jungle Him". If you knew
Graham for five minutes it would make
perfect sense.
Often times an event, unique situation or
catastrophic happening could evoke a
lasting nom de plume. Charles Venifort
mashed the gas pedal instead of the brakes
and leaped his dad's brand new Buick
though the plate glass window at Frank's.
The gang in the back booth dove under the
table as crystal shards, splintered two by
fours and metal napkin holders filled the

A good week for Gadsden


It's been a good week for Gadsden
County, all things considered.
First, the Florida State University
College of Medicine announced Feb. 13
that it plans to expand services in student
health centers at James A. Shanks Middle
School and George W. Munroe
Elementary.
College of Medicine faculty members
have been working part-time in the
school-based health centers since last fall,
according to an FSU press release,
expanding the clinics to include full-
service primary care and mental health
services.
The College of Medicine also hired
nurse practitioner Susan LaJoie to oversee
clinical operations in the Gadsden school
health centers.
It's one of several ongoing efforts to
correct the problem of healthcare
disparities in the county and provide early
intervention, preventive care and health
education in an attempt to improve
negative outcomes, such as black infant
mortality.
Two days after that announcement, Gov.
Charlie Crist sent a leadership team to
Gadsden County, one with with solutions
to some of our most vexing problems:
Access to healthcare, overcrowding at the
county jail and students who struggle
academically, mainly for environmental
reasons.
During Friday's meeting of community
and state leaders, state Surgeon General
Ana Viamonte Ros announced the Florida
Department of Health will provide a
mobile medical unit for use in Gadsden

County that will give residents without
transportation and other resources access
to healthcare.
The mobile health clinic will provide
family planning, breast and cervical
cancer screening, referrals for
mammograms, adult and child
immunizations, communicable disease
screening and treatment and prenatal care
services.
Its first stop will be in Chattahoochee.
Feb. 21, where it will park in front of the
health clinic on Maple Street from 8:30
a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
The mobile health clinic will be in
Greensboro Feb. 28 in front of Town Hall
from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and provide
the same services. It will rotate between
the two cities each Thursday.
Members of Crist's leadership team are
looking into partnerships that could bring
to fruition after-school youth programs
that would give students an opportunity to
participate in mentoring programs aimed
at improving reading, writing,
mathematics and science skills.
. And while it's a stretch to call a tornado
good news, I think all are mindful of the
fact that the one that hit western Gadsden
County around 1 a.m. Feb. 18 could have
caused much more damage than it did.
No lives were lost, and firefighters, law
enforcement officers, the Red Cross and
the Gadsden Baptist Association's
emergency response team were on the
scene almost immediately.
Might as well go ahead and say it:
Gadsden County rocks.


Letters

to the

Acditor


Editor;

"Water, water everywhere, but not a drop to
drink" is a famous quote we Floridians should
be ever mindful of. Being surrounded on
three sides by saltwater that is undrinkable
unless made pure by a very expensive
conversion process, should be a matter of
grave concern. If you've ever had the scary
experience of being stranded out on the ocean
without drinking water, you've probably
already guessed where I'm going with this
article. Water is a precious life sustaining
resource that must be treasured and never
taken for granted. We must all be good
stewards which brings me to the reason for
writing this article on a recent visit to the
main branch of the Gadsden County Library
system, I had a very eye opening experience.
While waiting to use the copy machine which
incidentally wasn't working in the first place, I
took the opportunity to voice a complaint
about water being wasted by the sprinkler
system in front of the library. One night
several months ago, I visited the library and
while leaving to walk to my car, I had to
retreat from the sidewalk and gointo the
parking lot to keep from getting soaked. Ms.
Mock who is Director of The Gadsden County
Library System gave me the number to call to
voice my complaint since she said her
supervision did not extend outside the
building. Ms. Mock, would you please
provide that number publicly to the water
conservation minded readers who may see this
article. I misplaced the number you gave me.
Oh, by the way, the sign that President
Truman had on his desk saying "The Buck
Stops Here" would be a welcome sight on a
desk in Quincy, Florida. I'd like to .leave the
readers with the image of a woman in a
draught stricken third world country spending
a big portion of her day walking
miles/kilometers to obtain pure clean drinking
water for her family. Wouldn't she appreciate
catching just a portion of the water being
wasted on sidewalks and in parking lots.
Dying of thirst? Let's not make this a reality!
Henry W. Rollins Jr.


Editor's note; As some
readers pointed out to us,
Kes Kolbert's column was
inadvertently incomplete
in last week's edition of
the Times. Here is that
column in its entirety.


Valentine's

Day

Massacre!

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
co implicated! And we had to
move the bases and fences back-,
as our baseball 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 "bb
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

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-uh, 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

Jury selection gets under way for Chavez murder trial


By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakul-
lanewvs.net

Jury selection got underway
this week for the murder trial of
Daniel Chavez, a Quincy man
charged with stabbing his wife to
death in Medart in 2005.
Chavez is charged with first-
degree murder, but since the state
is not seeking the death penalty
against Chavez, the case will be
heard by six jurors rather than
the 12 required in a death case. If
convicted, he faces life in prison.
Potential jurors were being
interviewed on Tuesday, Feb. 19,
by Assistant State Attorney Jack
Campbell and assistant public


defenders Ines Suber and Paula
Saunders. Once a jury is select-
ed, opening statements are
expected to open the trial on
Wednesday, Feb. 20.
Statements made by Chavez
to law enforcement after his
arrest for killing his wife will be
allowed to be heard at his trial.

Chavez allegedly admitted to
stabbing his wife to death during
an interrogation by law enforce-
ment officers the day after the
killing. At a motion on hearing
on Feb. 1, Wakulla Circuit Judge
N. Sanders Sauls found that
Chavez knowingly waived his
Miranda rights when he made
the statements to officers.


Judge Sauls also ruled that
statements made by Chavez's
late wife, Kathy, after she had
been mortally wounded, would
also be allowed.
The couple had only been
married a few months when, in
September 2005, Kathy Chavez
left the couple's home in Quincy
and was staying with a friend,
Patsy Haley, in Medart. Daniel
Chavez came over to talk to his
estranged wife on a Sunday
afternoon and they were on the
back porch when, hearing the
tone of their conversation esca-
late, Haley called the Wakulla
County Sheriffs Office and a
deputy arrived in time to hear a
scream.'


Haley said that when she
heard the scream she rushed to
the backyard and found Kathy
Chavez with stab wounds to her
chest, her blouse bloody, eyes
rolling back in her head. "He
stabbed me! He killed me!"
Kathy Chavez allegedly said.
Haley said that she stayed
with Kathy Chavez and prayed
with her until EMTs arrived and
loaded her in the ambulance. She
was subsequently helicoptered to
Tallahassee Memorial Hospital
but died on the operating table.
Frank Herrington, Haley's
uncle, was staying at the house
that day, and said he heard a
scream and went outside to find
Daniel Chavez holding a wound-


ed Kathy Chavez in his arms.
Herrington said he told Daniel,
"Get away from her," and then
threw the contents of a glass of
water at him. Daniel Chavez then
began stabbing himself in the
abdomen.
A medical examiner testified
at a pre-trial hearing that Kathy
Chavez had been stabbed twice,
at least one of which punctured
her heart and caused her death.
The force of the stabbing was
significant enough to cut one of
her ribs.
Daniel Chavez was hospital-
ized with what were described as
superficial wounds and released
to the Wakulla County Sheriffs
Office the next day. He was sub-


sequently interrogated by inves-
tigators using a Leon County
deputy who spoke Spanish.
It is expected at the trial that
the defense will challenge the
truthfulness of the interpretation
done by the translator, Gabriel
Pizzini, who left the Leon sher-
iffs office in 2005 and joined the
Marion County Sheriffs Office.
Pizzini was fired last year for
allegedly molesting a 14-year-
old girl he was transporting.
The defense is expected to
contend that the killing was not
premeditated. Rather, that
Chavez told his wife he wanted
to kill himself and, when she
tried to stop him, she was acci-
dentally stabbed.

Former Gretna firefighter

arrested for theft, DUI

Joyride in fire truck earns man charges


By LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor

A man who was relieved a
month ago of his duties as a vol-
unteer firefighter in Gretna was
arrested in the early morning
hours of Feb. 15 and charged
with stealing a city fire truck and
driving under the influence.
Ricardo Charleston, 25, of
Gretna was arrested without inci-
dent and transported to the
Gadsden County Jail after sub-
mitting breath samples that were
double the legal limit to operate a
vehicle within the State of
Florida.


The truck was reported stolen
around I a.m. to the Gadsden
County Sheriff's Office and a
BOLO issued. Witnesses said
Charleston, who had been
relieved of his duties in January
after a warrant for him was
issued in relation to a domestic
violence episode, drove the fire
truck to a former girlfriend's
house.
After GCSO issued a BOLO
for the truck, a Florida Highway
Patrol trooper spotted it at the
intersection of County Road 65A
and State Road 12 in Gadsden
County.
He was also charged with

having no or an improper license.
Gretna Police assisted in the
traffic stop.
Gretna Public Safety Chief
Brian Bess said Charleston was
relieved of his duties after the
domestic battery charges were
filed against him.
"His professional and person-
al lifestyle were not adequate for
the role of a firefighter," Bess
said.

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?"


Her smile ceased, "Are you nuts?
I wouldn't walk across the street
with Ronald Van Dyke! I wouldn't
spit on him if he was on fire! If he
was the last boy on earth I
wouldn't......"
There could be more to this
matchmaking thing than meets the
eye! I let her calm down a minute.
"Mary Hadley, you've got to go
with him."
"Over my dead body!"
Shoot! This plan seemed
foolproof at lunch! When every
other means of persuasion failed, I
told her the truth. Even down to that
part about the PMM Playermaker.
She just shook her head, "You are
crazy! You are absolutely craz....."
Mary Hadley paused in mid
sentence and I could see she was
doing a little pondering of her own.
"I will do it," the smile streaked


back across her face, "but I get to
keep the glove for the whole
season!"
I sat in the basement of the First
Baptist Church amid the Valentine
decorations with a stinging case of
double heart burn. And it had
nothing to do with the cold roast
beef or the soggy green beans. Not
only was I stuck with my old
Revelation glove for another year,
but you wouldn't believe how good
M. H. looked in that blue dress and
her hair out of that pony tail. I
couldn't take my eyes off of her!
And, for some strange reason, I
found myself angry at both her and
Ronald!
You don't reckon the little naked
fat guy had anything to do with
it ......
Respectfully,

College of Medicine faculty
members have been working part

centers since last fall, expanding the
clinics to include full-service
primary care, as well as mental

The College of Medicine
welcomed Susan LaJoie, a nurse

January. LaJoie is assigned to
oversee clinical operations in the


Gadsden school health centers on a
full-time basis.
In addition, medical school
faculty, FSU medical students and
psychology graduate students work
in the health centers on a part-time
basis. Involvement affords the
students the opportunity to
experience an integrated model of
clinical and behavioral health-care
services in a community setting.
Compared to most other counties
in Florida, residents of Gadsden

problems and fewer treatment

disease, obesity and diabetes are far
higher in Gadsden County than for
the rest of Florida," said Dr. Maggie
Blackburn, assistant professor of
family medicine and rural health at
the College of Medicine. "School-
based health clinics have been
shown to provide a health-care
safety net for school-age children,
so we believe this project will have
a measurable impact." '
Gadsden County also has an
infant-mortality rate double the
national average and higher than
that of 75 countries.
However, data suggest that early
intervention, preventive care and
health education could improve
some of these health outcomes. The
College of Medicine's involvement
is consistent with its mission in
several ways, including the
improvement of access to primary
care and mental health services for
a medically underserved
population, and providing service-
oriented learning opportunities for
faculty and students.

University and well as her
master's degree in elementary
education. She is currently enrolled
.in FAMU's educational leadership
program with the hope of
advancing her professional growth
by becoming a school-level
administrator.
During her tenure, Gaines has
been a team leader, school advisory
committee member, school
improvement plan member,
supplemental educational services
school site coordinator, member of
the parent involvement committee,
teacher mentor, supervisory teacher


department chairwoman and a
classroom teacher. In her spare
time, she is a devoted member and
a youth director for her church.
She credits her success to her
supportive family: A husband of 10.
years and three children.
Newer to the teaching scene but
no less enthusiastic about education
is Shayla Akins, named Rookie
Teacher of the Year by her peers.
After working at an executive
level for Target, she decided to try
teaching in her hometown.
"Being an executive district
recruiter for Target was very


fulfilling, but I felt like I needed a
different career," she said. "I
wanted to give back to Gadsden
County."
Akins has now taught business
education, technology and
accounting at East Gadsden High
School for a year and a half.
She graduated from James A.
Shanks High School in 1999 and
earned her degree at Flagler
College.
"Changing careers and coming
back to Gadsden County, I was
very open minded because I know
the students and I know the


background of the county," she
said. "Students think it's kind of
inspiring 'You're from Gadsden
County and you're a teacher.' I
think I could be a role model, and
my business experiences certainly
come into play in the classroom."
Akins, 27, said she plans to work
toward a master's degree in
educational leadership at Florida
State University.
And for School-Related
Employee of the Year Larissa
Riggins, her job as computer lab
proctor at Havana Elementary
School is a dream come true.
Riggins monitors student use of
the lab and helps students use a
program called Success Maker,
geared toward helping them score
well on the Florida Comprehensive
Assessment Test.


She also tutors in an after-school
program.
'1l wear a lot of hats around here,"
she said.
Riggins got her start after leaving
a job as a receptionist for a car
dealership and taking advantage of
the Americorps Gadsden Reads
program.
She then became a substitute
teacher and took a paraprofessional
assessment test.
"I love it. I love working at
Havana Elementary," she said.
"Everybody here is professional. I
enjoy working in the lab with the
students. It's a challenge -
everyday there's a different
personality or behavior."
A 1991 Havana Northside
graduate, Riggins, 34, was the 12th
of 14 children.


She started at Havana Elementary
as a paraprofessional in the
voluntary pre-k program, then
moved up to being a
paraprofessional for third-grade
classes until she achieved her
current position.
She serves as chairwoman of the
educational paraprofessional
organization at Havana Elementary
and helps out with childcare before
and after school.
Riggins has a 14-year-old
daughter.
When she learned her peers had
chosen her as School-Related
Employee of the Year, she got
misty-eyed.
"I really didn't expect to be the
winner," she said.
"Tears came to my eyes."

once or twice weekly after the
two got out of jail. He finished
his undergraduate degree at 19
and went on to earn a master's
degree.
He has taught mathematics at
Payne College, the University of
Georgia and began teaching at
Florida Agricultural and
Mechanical University in 1979,
retiring three years ago.
Raised in Wilson, N.C., Brodie-
was one of three boys. He was
raised by his grandmother.
The two lived next door to a
senator, whose white children
Brodie grew up with.
He remembers former President
Dwight Eisenhower stopping by
the senator's house on occasion,
always taking time to talk to the
budding scholar.
But he credits his grandmother
with giving him the drive to
succeed.
"She was always telling me,
'The senator's children next door,
you're as good as them,'" he said.
"She just convinced me you've
got to do it. You've got to make
As. You've got to try hard. I
made a B one time and it broke
my heart. It meant I didn't do all I
could do."
Brodie sees the importance of
telling today's children what the
world was like during the civil
rights movement.
He also know what he wants
them to retain: Fight ignorance
with education. Gain success by
making good choices.
"Most of all, I would say to
kids, 'Hey you need your
grades. You need your
education,'" he said.

The high school basketball season
toi Gadsden County officially ended
Tuesday night when the county'.s own
Rick> DaMis bought his FAMU Bab\
Rattlei team into Carter-Parruamoie


and ended the Lions state tournament
hopes with a 65-48l win.
The win was especially sweet foi
Davis as his team had lost to C-P two
Saturday's ago in the District 3-1 A


tuals,
Things .tastd going wrongg foi the
C.'ont1's sMIte hopes on ThursdaN
,Ohen Ea.,t Gadsden lost alith a thud
head all omei the Big Bend.
The undefeated Jaguais fell to
Pensacola by four points in a first
round Region I-4A game in the Jaguar
(j', m
The loss %wasn't the hardest thing to
take. The hardest thing to tale \'.as the
season \asi oer. This team had a
great chance of giving the county it's
ffist state basketball title in the new
century. Height. quiickness, and offen-
site and denfensi\e ability had carried
the Jaguais to 26 v\'ins, thrluee more
%in', and it wa, state championship
time.
Pensacola brought in a \ery athleti-
cally team that thought othei wise.
Eaily, East Gadsden had trouble
adjusting to the Tigers quickness both
on offense and defense. Something
Jaguai opponents had trouble with all


yeai.
Pensacola also did a good job of
pulling at least one ot the Jaguais big
men. either Sam McLauntn ot Rashaid
McGill awa\ from the basket. and the
Tigeis were getting put backs on
missed shots something opponents
haven't been able to do all year.
Eaily in the thud quarter the
Jaguais' foe had built a 20 point lead.
To East Gadsden and coach Demetric
Salters credit, the\ refused to fold.
Guard Leonardo DeloneN put in 4 long
range thiee-pointers, the Jaguars start-
ed getting some rebounds and the lead
was cut to 10 by the end of the quarter.
East Gadsden was to get within
four with 2 minutes left. but Pensacola
managed to do what the Jaguars could-
n't do. hit their fiee thio\ks. The fact
that East Gadsden missed 23 in the
game was probably the real killer.
Even down to the final 30 seconds
fans hoped fate might take over, then a
realization that the 26-0 run was done,


look o\cr. and one of the county's best
teams e'.ei. wouldn't make it to the
stite tournament.
At the same nine the Jaguars were
losing. \\esL Gadsden %\as being
edged b\ Maclay in Tallahassee after
raking a 19-9 fist quarter lead. The
Panthers scored only 29 points the rest
of the v.ay and Maclay slowly caught
up.
Also at that time Caitei-Parramore
was using a balanced attack to disman-
tle Jack-sonmille First Coast Christian
77-52. When the night was over the
Lions were the only county team still
playing.
C-P's possible state run ended with
the loss to FA.-'MU. So this year there
%. ill be no trip to Lakeland and no state
championship. But, as ever in this
county, basketball i., still very impor-
tant, and as ever county teams will
have talent returning and Lakeland
will still be in the back of alot of minds
in the oft' season.


Loss ends great season for EGHS Schebmt


by JOE FEROLITO
TIMES SPORTS EDITOR.

East Gadsen saw their
unbeaten streak of 26 wins end
Thursday night. That didn't hurt
near as much as the fact that their
season also ended with the 75-71
loss to Pensacola High in the
Jaguar Gym.
The loss came in the first
round of the Region 1 Class 4A
play-offs which means there was
no tommorow for one of the
county's best teams ever.
They didn't go down with out
a fight.


The very athletic and deep
Pensacola team froged to a 42-24
halftime lead and had the Jaguars
down by 20 early in the fourth
quarter when East Gadsden went
on a run. Led by 4 three-point
goals by Leonardo Deloney'the
Jaguars cut the lead to 10 enter-
ing quarter four. Inside scoring
by Sam McLaurin and a techni-
cal foul against a Pensacola play-
er got East Gadsden to within 4
with just over 2 minutes left.
The Tigers then had clutch
free throw shooting to keep the
Jaguars at bay.
Pensacola came into the game


very aggressively and East
Gadsden had trouble getting
defensive stops and also had
trouble avoiding turnovers. Led
by Eric Straughn who finished
the night with 23 points,
Keldrick White who hit 13, and
Kahlil Owens who got 11 the
Tigers built the big first half
lead.
The fact that East Gadsden
couldn't hit free throws didn't
help matters as the team missed
23 on the night.
Deloney finished the night
with 30 points, Kevin Delricco
had 18, and Reshard McGill 11.


But the team total of 71 was 5
short of keeping the season
going toward a state final.
"I can't say I'm not disap-
pointed." East Gadsden coach
Demetric Salters said.
"Pensacola came in and gave
more early effort on offense and
defense." Salters continued. "I
was proud of the way we came
back, but the come back ws a lit-
tle too late."
The 26-1 mark will be hard to
match for any future East
Gadsden team but the loss hurt in
that it happened at a rough to
take time.

Thursday night.

scoring only 4. second quarter
points allowing Maclay to ease


into the game. A.J Roberts was the
big gun for Maclay. He finished
the night with 23 points with 16 of

FAMU ends C-P state title run


A crowd full of fans could-
n't carry the Carter-Parramore
Lions to victory in Tuesday
nights semi-final Region 1-1A
basketball game.
The Lions fell to the Baby
Rattlers of FAMU High 65-48.
The win avenged a FAMU loss


to Carter-Parramore in the
District 3-1A finals.
Rayvon Jackson put in 23
points and Alex Williams and
Jerrod Williams 10 each to
lead the scoring for FAMU.
The Rattlers jumped to an
early lead and maintained it


throughout the game before
running off a 24-15 fourth
quarter margin to gain the
right to play at Paxton
Saturday night for a state final
spot.
Antron Johnson put in 13
points, grabbed off 10


rebounds and had 9 blocks to
pace the Lions, who also got
11 points from Reginald
Johnson.
The Lions finished the sea-
son with a 23-6 record. They
return most of their key play-
ers next year.


Carter-Parramore placed 4
players in double-figures, con-
trolled the backboards and the
games tempo in running by
Jacksonville First Coast
Christian last Thursday in the
Lions Gym. The game was a
first round region 1-IA state
finals -game.
C-P grabbed a 20-12 first
quarter lead only to see First
Coast close it to 35-30 by the
half. A 21-7 third quarter run
pretty much put it away for the
Lions and they advanced to a
Tuesday semi-final match


against FAMU High.
The Johnson duo of Antrdn
and Reginald scored 17 points
each to lead the scoring for C-P.
Deontaye McWhite and Eric
Williams added 16 and 15
respectively. A Johnson pulled
off 19 rebounds, and Williams
and Vladimir Card had 12 each.
R. Johnson had 10 assists.
The win gave C-P a 23-5
record as they prepared for a
fourth time meeting with
FAMU. The Lions won the pre-
vious three including a district
championship win February 9th.

NFC ends season for WGHS girls
It all came down to boards and balance. North
Florida Christian controlled the offensive and defen-
sive boards and got balanced scoring from all players'
to defeat West Gadsden in regional quarterfinals last
Tuesday night in the Panther gym.
The first quarter opened with both teams trading
baskets and it appeared that the crowd was in for a
close and exciting game. The first quarter ended;
however, with North Florida Christian's 8th grade
point guard hitting a three followed by a put back by
center Melanie Warner and a quick layup by Samantha
Phillips to end the quarter with NFC leading 16-10.
The second quarter began the same way the first
ended, with quick buckets by NFC. West Gadsden
leading scorer Tyesha Battles, the state's leading scor-
er as well, was being close guarded at all times and had
yet to score. West Gadsden center Bridae White was
about all the offensive power that West Gadsden had
at this time and NFC surged ahead 26-10 before
Battles finally hit a three pointer from the top of the
key.
The three by Battles ignited both the team and the
crowd but this was short lived when NFC hit back to
back three pointers and surged ahead 32-13. An
inspired Battles hit two three pointers and blocked two
shots before the half ended with her Panther team
down 32-18.
The second half saw not only a box and one
defense on Battles but also a five on one defense.
NFC was determined not to let the senior guard score
the 49 points she scored when West Gadsden defeated
the Eagles two weeks ago. Although Battles went on
to score 23 points in the game, it was never enough to
catchup to the well balanced'scoring attack by NFC.
West Gadsden went into a man defense in the sec-

Lois Wise led a group of 2-3-
year-olds outside, where three
tables bore books sorted by age
appropriateness.
They eagerly leafed through the
books on display, many opting for
books shaped like fire engines or
trucks.
"You want this one? OK, I'll
put your name on it," Wise said,
inking a small boy's name on the
back cover of a book about trac-
tors.
The Monday event was all part
of the Redlands Christian Migrant
Association Child Development
Center's Reading is Fundamental
program. Because the date of the,
book distribution fell so close to
Valentine's Day, the theme for the
day was "We love to read."
RIF is the nation's oldest and
largest children's and family non-


profit literacy organization. Its
focus is on reaching underserved
children from birth to age 8.
Through community volun-
teers, RIF provides 4.5 million
children with 16 million brand
new, free books and literary
sources each year.
In Florida, RIF distributed
675,652 books to 180,679 children
at 780 sites last year.
RIF programs combine reading
motivation, family and community
involvement and the distribution of
free books to foster children's liter-
acy for children from low-income
rural families and children of
migrant workers.
Wise, who is an early learning
specialist at the RCMA Child
Development Center in
Greensboro, said she, teachers and
volunteers orchestrated several fun
activities for children at the school
to get them excited about choosing
a book.

Children at the center decorated
heart cookies, painted and read
books including "Falling for
Rapunzel" by Leah Wilcox and
"The Kissing Hand" by Audrey
Penn.
Wise said she is grateful for the


community support the RCMA
RIF program has garnered.
"When our community bands
together," she said, "we can send a
powerful message about the
importance of literacy and educa-
tion."

Liberty takes 4-3 win over Munroe in softball opener


Freshman centerfielder
Kristin Allen hit an RBI single in
the first inning and then caught
an RBI robbing hit with a diving
catch to give Munroe a 1-0 lead
for three innings in the Lady Cats
season opener at Liberty County
on Friday night. Liberty County
scored one run in the bottom of


the fourth and the score remained
knotted at 1-1 heading into the
top of the sixth inning.
In the top of the sixth inning,
leftfielder Spenser Morris hit a
line drive that skipped under the
left fielders glove for an RBI
triple that put the Lady Cats
ahead 2-1. Liberty County
picked up a few hits and one
costly error by Munroe to score


three runs in the bottom of the
sixth.
With Liberty County leading
4-2 in the top of the seventh,
Munroe senior infielder/pitcher
Malorie McKinnon hit a shot to
right field that looked like it may
clear the fence. Instead it fell just
short of the fence, scoring one
run and putting McKinnon on
third. Unfortunately, McKinnon


was stranded on third and the .
Lady Cats lost 4-3.
The season opening loss put
new head coach, Mark Allen and
his team at 0-1 while Liberty
County moved to 4-1 on the sea-
son. The team plays three games
this week hosting Altha Tuesday
and travelling to Maclay on
Thursday and district opponent
John Paul II on Friday.

Gov. Crist gives Gadsden County a helping hand


Governor's Press Office

Gov. Charlie Crist on Friday
dispatched a leadership team to
offer support and technical assis-
tance from state agencies to
address the needs identified by
Gadsden County leaders. On Nov.
29, Gov. Crist met with members
of the Gadsden County
Commission to discuss ways the
Executive Office of the Governor
could assist in addressing the
county's greatest needs.
"As we look for additional
ways to provide property-tax relief
to homeowners in our state, we
must be aware of the unique chal-
lenges that affect Florida's small
counties," said Gov. Crist. "I have
asked our leadership team to begin
with one of our closest neighbors
to.explore ways we can help sup-
. port their efforts to serve their
community."
The Governor's Chief of Staff,
Eric Eikenberg, led Friday's team
of state leaders, including Florida
Surgeon General Dr. Ana
Viamonte Ros, Secretary Walt
McNeil from the Florida
Department of Corrections, and
leaders from the Florida

Pam, with pad in hand, roller
skated over, tapped on the
window and said, "What'll it be,
Crash?"
,Sometimes a nickname would
be superfluous. I grew up with
LaRenda Bradfield and Graylene
Lemmonds. You couldn't top
those names if you stayed up all
night! I played baseball with Sput
Garnett. I figured there's no way
that could be real until I found
;out his father's name was Rut!
We didn't give Bob Cassidy a
nickname because he was the
biggest guy on the block. And no
one was going to accept
responsibility in case he didn't
like it. We avoided calling "Tank"
Hinson Tank to his face for much

Department of Children and
Families, Florida Department of
Transportation and the Governor's
Office of Policy and Budget. They
met with Gadsden County leaders,
who included County
Commission Chairman Edward J.
Dixon, Gadsden County Health
Department Administrator Sylvia
Forehand Byrd and representa-
tives from the Gadsden County
schools and law enforcement
organizations.
Viamonte Ros announced that
the Florida Department of Health
has acquired a mobile medical unit
for use in Gadsden communities
that will provide much-needed
health care services to county resi-
dents. Leaders of the state DCF
announced that ACCESS staff will
also be available at the traveling
unit. This initiative will provide
additional access to health care for
many. residents of Gadsden
County.
The units will be manned by
staff from Gadsden County Health
Department and will provide vari-
ous clinical services such as breast
and cervical outreach and screen-
ing, adult and child immuniza-
tions, communicable disease

the same reason. No nickname
was worth getting beat up over.
Well, maybe Ronnie "Fritz Fry"
Hamilton would be an exception.
As would Brenda "Puddin' Head"
Johnsonious.
This world would be a better
place if we turned off those
confounded Internets and Ipods
and got in the back booth and
tried to "work up" a nickname for
Ron Paul. Surely we could find a
suitable last name for him. And.
that gets me back to John Earl
Carl. Maybe I didn't get that
right. It could have been Carl
John Earl.....or was it Earl Carl
John.....his mom called him
"Trey".......

Gadsden County with this effort
for the community.
"Thanks to cooperation from
the Wakulla and Leon County
health departments, arrangements
have been made to locate their
mobile units in Gadsden commu-
nities-on Thursdays from Feb. 21
through June 30," said Viamonte
Ros. "Nothing is more important
than the health of our communities
and we are committed to doing
whatever we can to provide health
care to our most needy."
The mobile health clinic will
be in front of the Chattahoochee
Health Clinic on Maple Street
beginning Feb. 21 from 8:30 a.m.-
4:30 p.m. and continue every other
Thursday until further notice. It
will be in Greensboro in front of
Town Hall beginning Feb. 28 from
8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. every other
Thursday until further notice.
Appointments are encouraged but
not required; to make an appoint-
ment, call 875-7200 ext. 301 or
875-5024.
DCF ACCESS program
employees will be available to
help residents learn more about
public assistance offered by the
state such as food stamps,


Medicaid, KidCare and cash assis-
tance. ACCESS employees will
help individuals apply for services
through the program's online
application process and answer
questions about pending applica-
tions and other services.
"Gov. Crist is committed to
helping Gadsden County's com-
munities thrive, and it is vital that
health and human services agen-
cies lead that charge," said
Children and Families Secretary
Bob Butterworth. "Together with
the Department of Health, we are
bringing services right to the
doorstep of Gadsden County resi-
dents, ensuring families are
healthy and self-sufficient."
Gov. Crist's proposed 2008-09
budget includes plans to actively
seek a comprehensive, market-
based strategy that will provide
affordable and accessible health
care for Florida's citizens. The
Governor also seeks to create a
greater safety net for all uninsured
through partnerships between
county health departments and pri-
mary care networks in 14 counties
with the greatest need, including
Gadsden County.
The leadership team also
announced assistance to relieve
overcrowding conditions in the
Gadsden County jail. While over

half of Florida's 67 county jails are
overcrowded, the Gadsden
County jail is operating at over
150 percent capacity. In January,
the Governor directed the Florida
Department of Corrections to pro-
vide inmate work squads to con-
vert a classroom at the Gadsden
County Jail to provide an addition-
al 30 beds for female inmates.
Construction activities are expect-
ed to begin later this month with
completion expected by July.
To help increase student aca-
demic performance, the leadership
team and Gadsden County leaders
will explore partnerships that will
result in after-school youth pro-


grams. In 2007, Gadsden schools
ranked among the 10 lowest dis-
tricts in the percentage of students
meeting academic performance
standards and making learning
gains in reading and math.
Through the programs, students
will have increased opportunities
to participate in mentoring pro-
grams that will support academic
skills such as reading, writing,
mathematics and science.

It plowed a path north across
the interstate, pulling up trees and
causing several wrecks, including
one in which the driver of a semi-
truck was unable to avoid a tree,
then had his truck flipped by the
tornado.
He was treated and released.
The worst of the damage
occurred in the Mt. Pleasant area.
Greensboro Police Chief
Marianne Scholer said she was
awakened at around 3:30 a.m. by
her husband, Sam Scholer, a
firefighter with the Greensboro
Volunteer Fire Department.
The two worked with other first
responders, including the
Gadsden County Sheriff's Office,
the Sycamore Volunteer Fire
Department, Capital Area Red
Cross and the Gadsden Baptist
Association's chainsaw-armed
and disaster-trained emergency
response team to clear debris and
assist shaken residents.
""Big trees came down we
were very fortunate there was not
widespread damage to
dwellings," Chief Scholer said.
It was a little after I Monday
morning and Sylvia Hall of
Finuff Road in Hardaway
couldn't sleep. One of her three
dogs seemed agitated, she said.
She and her husband were home
when the tornado slammed into


their property.
"When it came through, it
freaked me out," she said. "The
electricity went out it was
definitely like a train coming
through. It tore off roof shingles
and took out the underpinning. It
moved our boat and our double
carport just flopped over."
The couple's mobile home, and
the two vehicles they drive,
remained intact, Hall said, and
she was so grateful she almost
cried when she saw first a
Gadsden County Sheriff's Office
cruiser, then other vehicles arrive.
"I've lived all over and 'I just
can't believe how fast people
came to help and how many
people came," she said. "There
must have been 50 people. They
cut up the trees that were down. I
really appreciate the response it
was instantaneous. I'm just
amazed at the response."
The storm moved through the
Gretna area before heading to
Grady County, Ga.
Damage from the tornado in
Gretna was "very minimal," said
Gretna Public Safety Director
Brian Bess.
"There was some flooding and
some trees down."
In all, a Gadsden County home
occupied by six people was
destroyed, one home received


major damage, five homes
received minor damage and six
homes were slightly affected by
the tornado.
The Capital Area Red Cross
chapter responded and provided
meals and snacks to families and
works in the area. Power was not
restored until 4 a.m. and water
was still not restored to some
houses later in the day, interim
Capital Area Red Cross Chapter
Emergency Management Director
Tim Turner said.
"There was phenomenal work
by the Gadsden Baptist
Association. They essentially
rebuilt the roof of a home with
major damage by retrieving
damaged pieces and placing tarps
on the entire roof," Turner said.
"All broken windows were
covered with plywood sheets.
They deserve a lot of credit."
The Red Cross reported serving
76 meals and 150 snacks to those
affected by the storm.
Tallahassee National Weather
Service meteorologist Bob Gorey
said a meteorologist from his
office toured the affected area
Monday with plans to continue
on to Grady County to assess the
damage there. Early reports
indicate the tornado blew out the
windows of one home and
knocked down several trees.


A house on Mt Pleasant Rd north of Blue Star Hwy was damaged when a tornado moved
through the area during the early morning hours of Feb 18. Later, volunteers gathered to remove
trees and make emergency repairs to the home, one of the few structures damaged by the storm.

Lillian Cox displays a photo taken with Barbara Walters and her granddaughter, Allison Smith, while she was in New York for an interview with Walters.
The. centenarian will be featured in a segment to be aired on April 1.


Quincy native and centenarian scores interview with Walters


By LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor

L illian Cox opens her
front door with a
flourish, greeting a
woman she's met once
by name and kissing her on the
cheek.
"Come in, dear, come in," she
says, her lovely lilt lifting the words
in a way that's almost symphonic.
She might be 100 turns 101 on
Feb. 22 but she is all life and
lightness when she entertains.
And she does know how to
entertain.
' Born in Gadsden County Feb. 22,
1906, Ms. Cox was one of three
daughters born to seamstress Jenny
Parramore Todd and merchant
Robert Lilton Todd.
She went on to marry Thomas
Cox, and the couple moved to
Tallahassee, where she opened
Lillian's, a dress shop that she ran
until 1976.
Her innate sense of style and
decided panache has drawn the
interest of several newspapers and,
last year, Barbara Walters.
Lynn Adler, then director of the
National Centenarian Awareness
Project, was in the process of
looking for representatives of the
100-year-old-plus crowd for a


segment Walters was planning on
centenarians. She came across
Cox's picture in the Gadsden
County Times and the Tallahassee
Democrat, and arranged an
interview with Cox.
Once she determined Cox would
be a good
candidate for
the sho\,.


Barbara '
Walters '
paid to fly Cox !
and her
granddaughter, Allison Smith, to
New York for an interview in
March.
It's an experience Cox still
relishes.
"We had private rooms, she gave
us a trip to Central Park, took us out
to dinner I imagine our dinner
was around $100 each," she said.
"We were treated royally. We had a
marvelous time."
Walters later sent a camera crew to
Cox's Tallahassee home.


Cox is one of three women and
two men to be featured on the show,
which will air April 1 at 7 p .m. on
ABC.
"Barbara couldn't get over my
hairdo," Cox noted.
Cox said she sleeps on satin
pillo%%cases to keep











Cox's
i daLughiter,
,. Carolynii Parrch,
is in poor health and
was recently admitted to a
nursing home. Cox had cared for
her years prior.
On the day of the interview with
the Gadsden County Times, she
dressed in a bright yellow two-
piece knit suit and crossed her
ankles as she talked. .
Makeup impeccable, a festive
yellow scarf and matching
accessories, she discussed key
events in her life and her resolve to
keep on keeping on.


She's made a lifelong habit of
drinking plenty of water and
keeping busy "Don't sit down and
give up," she said.
She still drives the 1984 Cadillac
her husband bought her before he
passed away and enjoys working in
her yard.
"I'm not keen on housework," she
said.
She is keen on friends, and travel.
"If I'm going out with friends, we
go to Chez Pierre, or a steak house
- most anywhere. It just depends,"
she said. "I like to go to church, to
the Women's Club, to the Garden
Club. I have lots of friends, thank
the Lord, and they're really friends.
They bring me food all the time and
they take me out."
She's been to Europe six times,
Hawaii twice, to Canada and to Las
Vegas. In all, she has visited 10
countries and most of the U.S.
"When I retired, I was very
wealthy and I was young," she said.
"My father died of typhoid fever
when he was 35; my mother died
when she was 64. I thought, 'I'll
never live to be 80, so I may as well
have a good time.' All my
boyfriends died on me, but we used
to travel and have a good time. And
here I am 100-something years old.
I'm not unhappy. I don't grieve
over things much I try not to."

'Home Instead' joins AARP team


* Home Instead Senior Care, a
local company serving Leon,
Gadsden and Wakulla Counties,
has .joined .AARP.'s National
Employer Team (NET) a'net-
work of employers who value
the experience and skills of the
50+ worker, according to
AARP.
The NET program connects
50+ workers with employment
opportunities at companies that
now include Home Instead
Senior Care, an international
non-medical caregiving compa-
ny with more than 760 offices
worldwide including the local
franchise.
To join this elite team, employ-
ers must undertake a detailed
application process to demon-
strate their interest in hiring
mature workers. AARP's web-
site (www.aarp.org/employ-
erteam) provides information
on the employers and the posi-
tions they have posted on their


websites, along with links to
each employer's AARP career
page,
"We have .always valued the
mature worker and re thrilled
to be a part of this program,"
said Scott Harrell, owner of the.
local Home Instead Senior Care
office. "We are proud to be an
employer that recognizes the
many contributions mature
workers bring to the workforce,
not only in our community but
throughout the world."
Home Instead Senior Care
strives to help keep seniors
independent. The company's
non-medical services include
companionship, meal prepara-
tion, medication reminders,
light housekeeping and escort

"Our National Employer Team
members recognize the changes
occurring in the labor force,"
said Deborah Russell, AARP's
Director of Workforce Issues.
"AARP's NET members come
from fields ranging from retail
to travel to security with posi-
tions spanning the gap from tax
examiners for the Internal
Revenue Service to' country
directors for the Peace Corps,"
added Russell.
"Boomers' experience pro-
vides a valuable resource to
employers who face worker
shortages in many diverse
areas."

But straight way Jesus spake Uniii ihri. -.jrni. be ye of go.od cheer, it is I, be not afraid.
M.tthe%% 14:27 (KJV)

Atter Jesus fed the multitude the
disciples got on a boat to go to the other
,/ reside. Jesus ~eniit i i on a mountain to
\ pray. \\'lile the di i:plcs were on the
ship the winds and the waves tossed the
ship
They looked out and saw Jesus
standing on the water and became afraid.
They thought he was a spirit. Jesus
called out and told them who he was and
.they were no longer afraid. Peter was
bold and asked if he could come out on
the water. Peter got out and saw th
winds and started to doubt his ability to
walk on the water so he began to sink.
Jesus came and rescued him and put him
back in the boat,

Five things every


taxpayer needs to know


about the Government


Rebate Check!

1. File your 2007 Income Tax Relurn -You can't get a rebate check this year unless you file your .
2007 tax return.
2. The Sooner the Better-The sooner you file your tax return, the sooner you might get your rebate check.
Come to Jackson Hewitt...and we'll help you.
3. Electronic Filingc is the Way to Go-IRS e-file will help you get your rebate check sooner. It's fast,
convenient and you'll know your tax return has been received because you'll get a confirmation of receipt.
Certain taxpayers may not be able to e-file and must file a paper return.
4. Don't Count Yourself Out...You May Quality- If you're a senior citizen on Social Security, getting
retirement or disability benefits, or didn't need to file a tax return this year, you could STILL qualify for a rebate
check. Just come to Jackson Hewitt and we'll help you find out ifyou're eligible, and then file your tax return.
5. Watch Out for Your Two IRS Notices-Taxpayers who qualify will receive two notices from the IRS: one on
the Stimulus Payment program and a second one confirming their eligibility, payment amount and timetable for
payment. You'll need to save the second notice to help in preparing your 2008 tax return next year.

To schedule your tax preparation appointment and see if
you qualify for the Government Rebate Check, contact your
local Jackson Hewitt office at 1-800-234-1040 or visit us
at www.jacksonhewitt.com
Eligibility requirements for Stimulus Payments will apply.

Attorney. Crump and Ezell 'Top' Bryant.


Crump speaks at HMS


Attorney Ben Crump of the
Parks and Crump Law Finn
stopped by Havana Middle School
and leave a few words of
encouragement. Mr. Crump told the
students that "Knowledge is
power." He interacted with the
audience soliciting probing
questions such as: What do you
want to be when you grow up, Who
is Nelson Mandela and more. Mr.
Crump used Nelson Mandela as an
example and said, "It does not
matter about life conditions; you
can make it in life with
knowledge."
Mr. Crump talked about heroes.
He said we often choose popular
figures as heroes; but, heroes are
all around us. He said the teachers
at HMS should be considered
heroes to the students. The teachers
are going to give you more than
Shak and Coby.
He told the students that FCAT is
just a "little test" and we can
conquer it. The students let out a
big yell as a sign of approval. At
his law firm, he and his partner
always prepare to win each case.
He told the students to have a
winning attitude in every endeavor.
He also stated, "I don't want to be a
zero. I want to be a hero."
He told the students to make good
choices and to always do the right


thing. He said that may sound lame
but just always do the right thing.
He asked the students to prepare to
do the right thing. He closed with a
prominent saying by Malcolm X
"You've got to have a plan. P ut it
in black and white." This activity
was facilitated by Mrs. Kalya
Miles.

The Changing

of the Guard


As soon as the Bolsheviks seized control of the
Russian government in November 1917, they
moved quickly to solidify their power. Neither
Vladimir Lenin, nor Leon Trotsky, nor Joseph
Stalin, nor any other Bolshevik leader, under-
stood in democracy. They had only seen the
brutal, repressive governments of the Tsar. So,
they decided to be brutal and repressive too.
Much like the former Tsar, the new lead-
ers thought they knew what was best for the
Russian people. Before the calendar turned to
1918, they created their own
secret police force, modeled on
the former Tsar's force. Called
the CHEKA, its purpose was to
protect the Bolshevik govern-
ment. Less than a month after
that, they outlawed all other
i political parties.
Few, if any, Russians
actively opposed the
new government's
. */ moves Most "


were too concerned with staying alive to bother
with political intrigues occurring in Moscow and
St. Petersburg. The British journalist, Arthur
Ransome, who toured Russia in 1919 observed
that:
This state of affairs would probably be more
actively resented if the people were capable of
resenting anything but their own hunger, or of fear-
ing anything but a general collapse which would
turn that hunger into starvation.
Vladimir Lenin, the nation's new leader,
understood that one Bolshevik promise he could
not ignore was to end Russia's participation in
World War I. Six months after assuming power, the
new government signed a peace treaty with the
Germans.
Once Russia and Germany had signed a
peace treaty with Germany, Vladimir Lenin and his
second in command, Leon Trotsky, ruled a country
with almost no infrastructure. Its farmers pro-
duced too little food, its factories produced too
few tools, the war destroyed its transportation sys-
tem, and its people were starving. To make mat-
ters worse, although World War I had ended, for-
merTsarist military officers and other sup-
porters of the monarchy
banded Together ,....
" "' under the


__j I


umbrella of White
Russians. The Civil
War they started
lasted three years.
When, in
August 1918, an
assassin tried to kill
Lenin,they unleashed .
the CHEKA on the
population. It was s
called the Red
Terror, and in the
next year, CHEKA Leon Trotsky, 1920. Through the
officers murdered Leon Trotsky Archive.
more, than 6,300
counterrevolutionaries.
By 1921, the Bolsheviks had won the Civil
War, but were losing the support of most
Russians. However, a national famine saved the
government. For two years, grain harvests
failed. Although relief supplies came from
Britain and the United States, a million people
died. No one tried to overthrow the govern-
ment. They had no strength.
The February Revolution in 1917 was a
spontaneous outbreak in response to the inabil-
ity of the Tsarist government to supply basic
services. The Bolshevik coup of November 1917
succeeded because, after a lengthy period of
war and starvation, people wanted food and
peace. Find out more about how the Bolsheviks
then used terror, repression, and propaganda to
retain power for over seventy years.

The Crisis in Russia The Commissar Vanishes


British author Arthur Ransome wrote this book,
published in late 1920. He visited Russia as a
journalist, but also worked as an agent for
British intelligence. The book offers an accu-
rate, first-hand, picture of the collapse of
Russia's infrastructure and society following
the Bolshevik Revolution.

This exhibit from the Newseum includes a series of
photographs published during the Stalin era in the
Soviet Union. They show how censors would doc-
tor photographs to eliminate any politicians,
bureaucrats, or military officers Who had fallen out
of favor with Joseph Stalin. Although the changes
were crudely done, they clearly show the limits to
which Soviet rulers went to control information.

The Truth About Kronstadt
In early 1921, sailors at the Kronstadt Naval Base
rebelled against Bolshevik rule. Four years earlier,
many of the sailors had supported the Bolshevik
Revolution. Now, they and millions of their coun-
trymen were starving because of the new govern-
ment's policies. This translation of a primary source
document, offers the story of their rebellion.

Thumbs up at HMS


Students and staff at Havana Middle School believe that they are tied to each other. The
way Dr. Norris says it is "Your destiny is tied to my destiny." It seems like such a simple phi-
losophy; but HMS hopes it works. Dr. Norris asked the entire school to put a six on their
thumbs. She asked the faculty, staff and student body to show a thumbs up to all the eighth
graders on Feb 12, 2008 (the day of the Florida Writes portion of the FCAT). HMS rewards
exceptional test scores and is anxious to give away some money. The eight graders paraded down
the hall singing, (body one body one . on the way to their testing site. The rest of the students
stood at the doorways of their homerooms and watched the processional with a thumbs up sign.
One person on the side line yell out "You can beat this cat!". The eighth graders went to their test
site pumped and ready to write. The photo shows the students getting parading around the
school with while anticipating a level 6.
