Chavez


guilty of


M edart


murder

By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanews.net
Daniel Chavez was found guilty of murder
last week for killing his wife Kathy Partida
Chavez in September 2005. He will face life in
prison at his sentencing hearing in March.
The jury deliberated for about three and a
half hours on Friday, Feb. 22, before returning
a verdict of guilty as charged for first-degree
murder. Chavez, a 27-year-old Mexican
immigrant, showed no emotion when the
verdict was announced. He hung his head and
his lead attorney, Public Defender Ines Suber,
whispered into his ear, presumably about filing
an appeal.
The family of Kathy Chavez, including her
mother and sister and friends, sat through most
of the weeklong trial. The guilty verdict
seemed to offer visible relief to the family
members, who hugged in the courtroom and
wiped tears from their eyes.
Daniel and Kathy Chavez had been married
only since February 2005 when she left the
couple's Tallahassee home to stay with a
family friend, Patsy Haley, in Medart in
September 2005. On Sept. 18, a Sunday,
Daniel Chavez drove up to the house
unannounced to see his wife, who was
preparing to go to church with Haley. Kathy
Chavez, who was 23 years old, was
uncomfortable about speaking with her
estranged husband, and Haley called the
Wakulla County Sheriffs Office to send a
deputy over.
On the back porch of the home, Kathy
Chavez spoke with Daniel Chavez, and Haley
and others in the home could hear Kathy
telling her husband, "No, Daniel. No, Daniel."
And, as a sheriffs deputy pulled up in the
drive, there was a scream, and Kathy yelled
for "Miss Patsy." As the deputy and Haley
came around the house, they found Kathy and
Daniel entwined, falling to the ground, with

Schools look for ways to cut back

State tells district allocated money 'isn't there,' leading to budget shortfall


By LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor
A state budget shortfall will translate
to a $513,000 cut in funding to the
Gadsden County School district.
Gadsden Schools Superintendent
Reginald James said there is some
serious belt-tightening on the horizon.
"We will survive," he said. "I will
recommend to our board that we
freeze all hiring, travel and limit all
expenditures to only those items that
directly impact instruction. I can only
conclude from this reduction in

money and then James
called the districts
to tell them that the money they
promised isn't there. That is something
that you don't expect to happen. In
fact, I've never seen it happen. It


definitely impacts us given the fact we
have built a budget on what was
initially allocated and then hired
people and given raises based on the
allocated amount."
In a member to members of the state
Education Pre-K-12 Appropriations
Committee and the Schools and
Learning Council, Florida School
Boards Association Executive Director
Wayne Blanton urged members to
give local school districts more
flexibility in order to be able to cope
with the cuts.

resigns


Jack McLean says decision
'best for all parties involved'

by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
Quincy's longtime city attorney, Jack McLean, has
resigned.
"I hereby tender my thirty (30) day notice of contract
termination under the City Attorney's contract.
Effective March 26, 2008, I will relinquish my position
as City Attorney. This decision has been a heart-
wrenching one, but after consideration it is the best
decision," McLean wrote in a letter to Mayor Keith
Dowdell dated Feb. 25.
"Is this where you are definitely?" asked
Commissioner Sherrie Taylor.
"Let it stand as it is. I think it is best for all parties
involved," replied McLean.
"I really wish that we didn't have to face this at this
time when there are so many legal issues. This is
where I am with your letter," said Taylor and tore up
McIean's resignation letter.
Commissioner Finley Cook said he was shocked to
get McLean's letter of resignation but thanked him for
his services to the city and wished him well.
Commissioner Derrick Elias said that he, unlike
Commissioner Taylor, would not tear up McLean's
resignation.
McLean has been the city's attorney since May,
199g. Most recently, Commissioners Cook,' Elias, and

You could read the relief in the
faces of local officials Thursday
when a mobile medical unit
rolled up to the Gadsden County
Health Department.
It's one step toward making
healthcare more accessible for
Gadsden County residents, and
not a minute too soon.
"We are no longer waiting for
people to come to us. We are
going to our people," Gadsden
County Commission Chairman
Ed Dixon said. "We appreciate
the governor's help; We began
making moves ourselves by
ourselves, but we certainly


understand the governor's help
will make the process go much
faster."
Gadsden County Health
Department Nursing Director
Canella Jefferies thanked county
commissioners and state leaders
who helped make the mobile
medical unit possible.
"We are very pleased," she
said. "We will be going out to
reach the needs of our
community. (County Manager)
Marlon Brown has very strongly
encouraged the health department
to get out to the community and
to take the services out."

Experts: Despite storms, area still faces rainfall deficit


Drought conditions expected to continue


By LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor

Recent heavy rainfall did put
Quincy above average for
February, but there's still a long
way to go before Northwest
Florida can claim it's safely out
of a water shortage designation.
"The water shortage has not
been rescinded," said Nick
Wooten, chief of the Surface
Water Management Bureau for
the Northwest Florida Water
Management Bureau. "For most
of last year we had a rainfall
deficit." The driest parts of the
district were around Panama City
northeast through the Panhandle
- Washington, Calhoun, Liberty
and Gadsden counties.
Normal rainfall for Quincy is
around 5.63 inches in January
and 4.37 inches in February. Last
year, Quincy saw 3.38 inches of


'The water shortage

rescinded. For most
of last year we had a
rainfall deficit.'

Surface Water Management
Bureau for the Northwest Florida
Water Management Bureau


rain in January and 3.60 in
February.
Rainfall was below average for
the following months until
August, when it was above
average and remained so for the
rest of the year.
The year ended with a
cumulative deficit of 25.95
inches, "Which is significant,"


Wooten said.
The normal annual cumulative
rainfall for this area is 56.34
inches.
"We get winter fronts that come
through here in the Panhandle,"
Wooten said.
"We're lucky the rest of the
state doesn't always get those
nice frontal movements that bring
rain."
Still, January rainfall was below
average at 3.36 inches, but
February, through Feb. 26, was
above normal with 6.7 inches.
The National Weather Service's
Climate Prediction Center in
Maryland calls for below average
rainfall in March, April and May
with an equal chance of above
average, normal or below average
rainfall in June, July and August.
"The long-term forecast for our
area is still a little drier than
usual," Wooten said.

minimize cuts to public
education funding."
Recommendations the FSBA
made to reduce the impact of the
shortfall to local school districts
include:
* Allowing school districts
total flexibility over use of all
appropriated funds, including
lottery, Florida Education
Finance Program, categorical
and 2-mill funds to meet
revenue shortfalls with the
proviso that school districts
continue to meet student and
fiscal accountability
requirements.
* Eliminate or reduce the
distribution of lottery funds to
School Advisory Councils from
$10 to $5.


* Eliminate bonus awards
provided through the School
Recognition Program.
* Eliminate the penalty that
redirects dollars from operating
to capital accounts for any
district that fails to meet class
size reduction goals.
* Delay the implementation of
the next phase of class size
reduction compliance to the
individual classroom level.
* Place a moratorium on the
establishment of new programs
or expansion of existing
programs. This would include a
moratorium on the expansion of
physical education requirements
on the elementary level and
incentives to expand physical
education options on the


secondary level.
* Offset cuts to K-12 funding
by using any balance higher
than the required 5 percent of
general revenue in the budget
stabilization fund.
James said he will do all he
can to keep from having to lay
off employees.
But if things continue down
the path they're headed now,
that could well become an only
option, he said.
"I'm going to do everything I
can to keep from recommending
laying off personnel. However,
if the economy does not improve
and the state continues to reduce
funding to districts, we will
have to take a serious look at
reducing the workforce."

McNeil from the Florida
Department of Corrections, and

Viamonte Ros announced then
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 residents.
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 various clinical services
such as breast and cervical
outreach and screening, adult
and child immunizations,
communicable disease screening


and treatment, blood pressure
screening and family planning.
The DOH helped Gadsden
County with the effort.
The mobile units were made
available through a partnership
with health departments in Leon
and Wakulla counties.
The mobile unit will be in
Greensboro in front of Town
Hall beginning Feb. 28 from
8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and every
other Thursday until June 30. It
will be in Chattahoochee in front

I was sitting in a side booth at the
Skyway Grill enjoying my cheeseburger
and Cherry Coke when the fight started. I
don't know who threw the first punch and I
didn't care. Watching grown men duke it
out in a juke joint wasn't someplace I
needed to be. I leaped for the front door
like I'd been shot out of a cannon! If my
parents found out I was here.....I'd look
worse than any of them fellers being
catapulted over the bar back there.
I had Pam Collins by the arm and we
were just about across the parking lo-
"Wait a minute, Kes, I left half my
sandwich!"
"Are you nuts! I'm not sticking around to
be interviewed by the police. I ain't
supposed to be here!" I half tossed her into
Dad's 1960 Chevrolet and fumbled for the
key. Dadgum'it, Pam talked me into
coming up here! I was sitting at Frank's
Dairy Bar about to order when she decided
the food was better "up the road". "This is
all your fault!" I turned an accusing eye
toward her but she was laughing too hard
to accept any guilt.
As we roared out of the parking lot I
could still hear George Jones blasting out
of that Wurlitzer, "Why, Baby, Why."
My sentiments exactly! Pam finally got
her merriment to a level that she could
speak. "Scaredy Cat! We could have at
least hung around long enough to see who
won. And you owe me a grilled cheese and
some onion rings....."
The Skyway Grill was much more than a
beer joint. 'Course, you had to look past
the long bar, the dance floor in the back,
the always blaring music box and the
flashing neon signs to understand it.
McKenzie was a "dry" town back in our
formative years. If a person wanted a drink
(stronger than SSS Tonic, Milk of
Magnesium or Dr Pepper) he had to cross
the county line and head ten miles or so up
highway 79 toward Henry.
They didn't make you drink beer there.


They'd take you money just as quick for a
Seven Up or a big Orange Crush. Their
burgers were the talk of three counties.
And they still had Hank Williams (eleven.
years after his death) and Bob Wills on the
juke box!
My parents didn't care about the food or
any other amenities. They never got past
the Falstaff and the Pabst Blue Ribbon. The
Skyway Grill was off limits when I was
growing up. Mother was pretty set in her
ways concerning the evils of alcohol. She
could even preach on it if the subject came
up. I'm not sure Dad saw it exactly like
Mom, but he went along to keep peace in
the family.
Of course, the stellar cheeseburgers and
the real Cherry Cokes, coupled with the
"don't go there" warnings were more than
any teenager could resist. Plus, Pam loved
the place. She never met a Skyway onion
ring that she didn't like! And when Buddy
Wiggleton and his band started playing
there on the week-ends, we figured we
ought to go and support one of our
classmates. At the very least, we would be
broadening our horizons......
One night Mud Watson and some of
those punks from Huntingdon came in.
They always beat us in football and I
reckon they had come over to rub it in.
"What are they doing in our place?"
I just shook my head. "Pam, what are you
talking about, OUR PLACE! We haven't
been up here but a couple of times. This is
not our place!"
"Well, it is closer to McKenzie than it is
to Huntingdon." She then proceeded to tell
Mud to get the heck out of "our place". He
immediately started for me. Rollin and
Yogi stood up behind me. Mud had a car
load with him. Somebody pushed Pam.
Rollin said something that I didn't quite
hear, one of the Huntingdon guys coughed
and somebody beside me raised their arm. I
hit Mud just as hard as I could right in the

Mammogram

best for

detecting

breast cancer
Not counting some kinds of skin
cancer, breast cancer in the United
States is the most common cancer
in women, no matter your race or
ethnicity. It is the most common
cause of death from cancer among
Hispanic women. It is the second
most common cause of death from
cancer among white, black,
Asian/Pacific Islander, and
American Indian/Alaska Native
women.
Although not very common,
men can also get breast cancer. In
men, breast cancer can happen at
any age, but is most common in
men who are between 60 and 70
years old. For every 100 cases of
breast cancer, less than 1 are in
men. For men, signs of breast
cancer and treatment are almost
the same as for women.
Different people have different
warning signs for breast cancer.
Warning signs of breast cancer
include:
1) a new lump in the breast or
underarm (armpit)
2) thickening or swelling of part
of the breast
3) irritation or dimpling of breast
skin
4) redness or flaky skin the
nipple area or the breast
5) pulling in of the nipple or
pain in the nipple area
6) nipple discharge other than
breast milk, including blood
7) any change in the size or the
shape of the breast and
8) pain in any area of the breast.
Some of these warning signs can
happen with other conditions that
are not cancer. Some people do
not have any signs or symptoms at
all. A person may find out they
have breast cancer after a routine
mammogram. If you have any
signs that worry you, be sure to
see your doctor right away.
Breast cancer screening means
checking a woman's breasts for
cancer before there are signs or
symptoms of the disease. Three
main tests are used to screen the
breasts for cancer. Talk to your
doctor about which tests are right
for you, and when you should
have them.
Mammogram. A
mammogram is an X-ray of the
breast. Mammograms are the best
method to detect breast cancer
early when it is easier to treat and
before it is big enough to feel or
cause symptoms. Having regular
mammograms can lower the risk
of dying from breast cancer. 1 If
you are age 40 years or older, be
sure to have a screening
mammogram every one to two
years.
Clinical breast exam. A
clinical breast exam is an
examination by a doctor or nurse,
who uses his or her hands to feel
for lumps or other changes.
Breast self-exam. A
breast self-exam is when you
check your own breasts for lumps,
changes in size or shape of the
breast, or any other changes in the
breasts or underarm (armpit).
The best way to find breast
cancer is with a mammogram. If
you choose to have clinical breast
exams and to perform breast self-
exams, be sure you also get
regular mammograms. If you
want to be screened for breast
cancer your doctor's office can
help you schedule an
appointment. Most health
insurance companies pay for the
cost of breast cancer screening
tests.
Many uninsured women
between the ages of 50 and 64
may be eligible for free breast


exams and mammograms as well
as Pap smears for cervical cancer
screening through the Health
Department. Call the Health
Department at 850-875-7200 to
schedule an appointment.

Jim Godwin succumbs to cancer at 60


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

Veteran law enforcement
officer James "Jim" Godwin
passed away last Thursday
evening after an extended ill-
ness. Godwin, 60, was at home
when he lost the battle to cancer.
Most people will remember
Godwin for his contributions to
the community through his work
with the Gadsden County
Sheriffs Department where he


was employed for almost 30
years beginning his career as a
jailer.
"We will remember Jim
because he touched th lives of so
many people in a good way. We
used to sit and talk a lot about a
lot of things. He was a good
friend," said the Rev. Frank
Ritter, long time friend and
associate.
Godwin worked his way up
through the ranks to become
Captian of the Investigations


and Narcotics Division under
former Sheriff W.A. Woodham.
For eight years he was a mem-
ber of the Florida Intelligence
Unit, serving eight of those
years as an officer. Godwin
earned the respect of his fellow
officers and many in the com-
munity throughout his years as a
law enforcement officer.
In 1984 and 1988 Godwin
was voted Gadsden County's
Law Enforcement Officer of the
Year.


He was known as one of the
best drug enforcement officers
in the region having worked
tirelessley to rid the community
of those who sought to bring
illecit drugs into the Gadsden
County community.
"Jim Godwin was one of the
finest investigators in the state.
He was a good man to work for,
he never raised his voice but you
knew he meant business" said
GCSO investigator Shelton
Turner.


While Godwin was known
for his no-tolerence for law
breakers, he had a soft side that
was evident among his family,
friends, and acquaintances.
"Lady" his four-year-old
English Shepard held a special
place in Godwin's heart, accord-
ing to his wife Dee.
Services for Godwin were,
held Saturday evening at 7
o'clock Thomas Memorial
Baptist Church with internment
Sunday morning at 7:30.

Monday night during an update

Havana chief wants reflective house number ordinance


By LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor

The Town of Havana wants
to be able to help its residents
in times of emergency.
With that in mind, Havana
Police Chief Glynn Beach is
working on an ordinance that
would provide reflective num-
bers for each household within
town limits so that public safe-


ty officials can easily locate
addresses.
As it stands now, police offi-
cers and ambulance drivers are
sometimes called to destina-
tions that have no street num-
bers on them.
"We'd like to get this in
place as quick as possible,"
Chief Beach said.
* There are around 1,500 resi-
dences within town limits, he


said. The cost for buying reflec-
tive numbers alone would be
roughly 12.5 cents per
dwelling; to affix the numbers
to a light-colored background
would cost 77 cents per
dwelling.
Asked who would apply the
number, Beach said he would
discuss the matter with Town
Manager Howard McKinnon.
"It doesn't matter as long as


it gets done," he said. "What
I'm introducing here is a quick
fix."
Town Council members took
no action on the proposal, and
Beach said he would forward it
to the town attorney for review.
In other matters during
Tuesday's regular meeting,
council members approved a
contract renewal with the
Florida Department of


'GadsdenSaves' helps locals with financial advice


by ALICE DU POINT
Times Editor

"The Building Wealth, Not
Debt" conference drew over 100
people Tuesday at the
University of Florida Research
Center.
The day-long conference,
which urged citizens to take
control of their financial lives,
was sponsored by
GadsdenSaves a non-profit
organization which teaches citi-
zens about finances.
"This is the second year for
the conference. It's an educa-
tional program which helps peo-
ple understand financial needs.
A lot of people are in debt and
don't know how to get out," said
Nikki Beare, GadsdenSaves
coordinator.
Twenty selected high school
students, ten each from West
Gadsden and East Gadsden
High Schools attended the con-
ference and will be part of the
first National Endowment for
Financial Education to be spon-
sored locally by Premiere Bank
this spring.
Lillian Johnson, president of
GadsdenSaves, said this. pro-
gram is excellent because stu-
dents lack basic knowledge in
financial matters. A national
survey of over 4,000 high
school seniors found that only
52 percent knew that if their
income doubled their taxes
would double. Only 32 percent
of' these same students knew


that retirement income paid by a
company is called a pension,
and only 17 percent knew that
stocks tend to have the highest
rate of growth over long periods
of time.
Johnson said the average
teenager spends almost $5,000
per year and that collectively,
teens between the ages of 13
and 19 years old spend $94.7
billion annually. Today's high
school graduate will earn over
$1 million in adulthood.
The program, in which these
students will participate, will
help students identify and prior-
itize their personal money man-
agement goals, develop a budg-
et, track their income and spend-
ing to stay within their budget,
comprehend the impact of time
on the value of money, under-
stand the cost of using credit,
and protect their assets as they
begin to accumulate money.
Richard Skaggs, president of
Consumer Credit Counseling
Services, Inc. told the audience
that in one day the CCCS
received over 34,000 telephone
calls from people concerned
about foreclosures on their
homes.
"Millions of people are los-
ing homes this year nationwide
and over 100 people here in
Gadsden County may lose thier
homes. Mr. Skaggs gave us an
excellent presentation on what
people can do to prevent fore-
closure; he was very good,"
Beare said.

ATTORNEY from Page 1


Gay, had questioned McLean's
salary and expressed their doubt
that the city could afford the
attorney. He was asked to come
back twice and present another
budget that commissioners might
find satisfactory. The three were
not pleased with either proposal
and rejected all three.
Cook asked if the city could
begin the process of advertising for
another attorney before the 30-day
notice had expired. McLean's
assured him that it was proper.
That leaves the city with two of
its most important positions
unfilled. The city has not had a
finance director in almost two
years at a time when
commissioners claim they want to
get a firm handle on the finance
department. Now, without an
attorney, legal problems may begin
to mount. In the worst case
scenario, the city could be forced
to pay much more for legal
representation than they were
paying McLean.
In other matters, commissioners
voted to deny promoters access to
the city's business park for a Mardi
Gras type celebration on March 1.
Commissioner Taylor said she felt
the city was sending the wrong
message to people who wanted to
bring something positive into the
community for young people
(between 13-21 years of age.)
While Commissioner Elias said
he was not opposed to the idea of
the celebration, which will include
vendors and possibly a car show
and a disc jockey, he was
concerned about traffic gridlock

after the celebration when those
attending would congregate on
U.S. Highway 90 in the area
between Burger King/McDonalds
and the parking lots across the
street.
Gerald McSwain, Quincy police
chief, said the department would
have 18 officers available and that
they would keep .traffic moving.
He said there would be gridlock
for a "minute" but that the officers
will get through it evening and
keep traffic moving.
"I don't get a warm and fuzzy
feeling with 18 police officers and
5,000 people. My concern is the
people who live here and who will
be inconvenienced," Elias said.
"For a measly $3,500 (which is
what the city will charge) that is a
lot of liability and discomfort for
our citizens," said Commissioner
Gay.

Renewable energy opportunities for Gadsden County


Renewable energy is one of the
fastest growing business enterprises
nationally. As a result, Gadsden
County should be gearing up and mak-
ing all attempts to keep abreast and
remain competitive with the rest of the
nation by attracting renewable energy
industries. The benefits to Gadsden
County in adopting such industries are
numerous.
One may ask, what are the driving
forces behind this sudden boom and
interest in renewable energy?
Currently, most our energy comes
from fossil fuels like petroleum, coal,
and natural gas which cannot be
replaced. Pollutants such as carbon
dioxide, sulfur dioxide, and nitrogen
oxide are released by burning these
fuels to create energy. These pollutants
have negative effects on health. Most
experts believe them to be the main
cause of global warming, undoubtedly,
one of the most difficult challenges the
world faces today.
There are also the issues of energy
self-sufficiency and national security.
While most of the petroleum used for
personal, transportation, and industrial
uses in the US is imported, there is a
major interest for the US to reduce i4s
reliance on foreign oil and increase
domestic production of renewable


energy. Several policies at national and
state levels have been put in place to
make this possible. US citizens,
including those living in Gadsden
County, will ultimately be the ones to
help realize these goals. In Florida,
Governor Crist's policies emphasize
reductions in greenhouse gas emis-
sions, increasing energy efficiency,
diversity in energy sources and securi-
ty, as well as situating Florida as a
leading state in the development and
commercialization of green energy
technologies. Similarly, Florida agri-
cultural commissioner, Charles
Bronson, advocates for his 25X25
goal. This target aims at producing !
25% of the nation's energy consump-
tion from renewable energy by tlhe
year 2025.
The state of Florida is unique, with
perhaps the greatest potential to lead
the nation in the production of renew-
able energy. Endowed with plenty of
sunshine throughout most of the year,
and surrounded by the oceans, the
Sunshine State's options for renewable
energy include solar, wave and wind
energy, green electricity, biodiesel, and
ethanol. A recent report by the
Department of Environmental
Protection director, Mike Sole, on the
finding of the commission showed that


By David
Gardner,
Executive
Director,
Gadsden County
Chamber of
Commerce


it's much more viable for households
to have solar panels now than it was
several years ago. .
Perhaps the most interesting of the
renewable energies are cellulosic
ethanol and biodiesel. The history of
ethanol dates back to the days of
moonshine and the origins of
NASCAR. Henry Ford produced the
first motor vehicle that ran on a com-
bination of ethanol and gasoline as far
back as 1908. Similarly, biodiesel
engines date back to 1895. Today, both
ethanol and biodiesel resume new
importance and provide new opportu-
nities for the economy of the US and
Gadsden County. Petroleum for our
motor vehicles contributes consider-
ably to the trade deficit. Using ethanol
and biodiesel as additives to gasoline
is expected, not only to reduce harmful
greenhouse gas emissions, but to


reduce our national trade deficit signif-
icantly.
Currently, most of the ethanol pro-
duced in the US is from corn grown in
the mid-west. Producing ethanol from
corn competes with the need for corn
for human food consumption. In addi-
tion, the option of corn ethanol is
unavailable for the state of Florida
because it produces 'very little corn.
However, because of, excellent condi-
tions for plant growth, Florida is often
described as the number one state in
biomass production, which uses plant
material as the fuel source. This lends
Florida to cellulosic ethanol produc-
tion and green electricity. Cellulosic
ethanol is attractive because it's pro-
duced from biomass and includes
renewable organic materials such as
agricultural crops, wood, and even
aquatic plants. As technologies for cel-
lulosic ethanol and green electricity
,become more readily available, we
expect to see a bigger growth in this
industry. Gadsden County should avail
itself to support and attract renewable
energy industries and opportunities.
Coupled with the huge availability
of biomass, and like most of Florida,
Gadsden County is served with an
excellent road and railway network
which are pre-requisites to attracting


renewable energy industries. Gadsden
County also has ample industrial space
to accommodate new industries.
Renewable energy industries can bring
to Gadsden County capital investment,
economic development, and much
needed jobs and expertise. A ripple
effect will also be expected in the
overall Gadsden County economy
because renewable energy industries
will rejuvenate other related business-
es. In a win-win situation, Gadsden
County will greatly benefit economi-
cally by attracting renewable energy
industries, while simultaneously
responding as concerned citizens to the
national and state calls to reduce gas
emissions and halt global warming.
The Gadsden County Chamber of
Commerce is working with several
renewable energy opportunities inter-
ested in Gadsden County. It is the
Chamber's policy not to comment on'
particular companies until we have
completed a thorough due diligence. It
is important to be sure that these com-
panies are financially strong with a
proven and sound environmental
stance. Infrastructure needs and the
company's background are also key
components to explore. At that point, a
particular community can decide if a
project is right for them.

TOO COLD FOR BASEBALL-
SOFTBALL
The high school baseball and soft-
ball season is in it's third week. And
though there have been some \ery
pretty days, there have been some
miserable ones.
Games played in below 50 degree
weather are far from ideal. Games
played in lower than 40 degree tem-
peratures are down right torture.
This year the season has also run
into quite a bit of rain outs. Games are
hard to reschedule but at least they
may be played in warmer weather
when they are made up.
EXHIBITION SEASON STARTS
It's that annual "rite of spnng" time
for the Majoi League Baseball's exhi-
bition season.


B. Joe Ferolito


Mote and more it seems to creep
up on us. I remember when the state
of the season \as a big thing to the
whole state. It's ntill a big thing to the
towns that host Majoi Leagues,
Baseball spring season. But too many'
other sports demand attention now\. so
like everything else spring training
'ain't what it use to be' to a lot of peo-
ple.

John Paul II edges two county foes


Scheb'de


by JOE FEROLITO
John Paul 11 edged West
, Gadsden 5-4 Wednesday night
,in a baseball, battle of the
,Panthers, game played in
Chattahoochee.
West Gadsden led John Paul
-2-0 through 4 innings behind the
_,pitching of Gary Brown and
- Quantev Houge.
,,. John Paul got all their runs in
the top of the fifth. Cory Waite
led the inning off with a home
run. Singles by Kenny Slvestri,
;Mark Mors, and Patrick


Mangan, a West Gadsden error,
and a 2-run double by Mitchell
Knight accounted for the scores.
Houge and Keldic James
drove in West Gadsden's early 2
runs before John Paul's Andy
Hultzman came in to pitch.
Holtzman blanked West
Gadsden from the second inning
until the seventh when Damian
Lowery's tripled in a run, and
Brandon Moore singled in
Lowery.
Hultzman got the last out on
a strike out to end the game with


Moore on second.
It was Hultzman's 7th whiff
in the contest.
"We had the big inning and
managed to hold on." John Paul
coach Gary Burns said.
"West Gadsden stayed right
in there with us, you can see
they're improving under coach
Lewis."
"We show some spunk all
night," West Gadsden coach
King Lewis said. "Hopefully
we can improve every game and
get better as we prepare for dis-


trict games."
It was the second night in a
row John Paul defeated a
Gadsden team by a run.
Monday night Silvestri
pitched a complex game out duel-
ing Cody Watson 4-3 in
Tallahassee. Both pitchers
threw complete games. Like in
the West Gadsden game, John
Paul got all their runs in one
inning as they put up a 4 spot in
the third. Ben Young had a
triple for Munroes big hit in the
game.

Carilyn Powers by a close 7-
5,6-4 match score.
With the team match score
knotted at three wins apiece,
the number two double match
took center stage. Beth
Summerford and Anna Dooner,
cousins and partners, won
handily 8-2 to take the secure

McSwain overcomes obstacles all the way to Carnegie Hall


EGHS chorus member now faces bright future EI E
<- - I ^ ll *": -: ^'*- !


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

Editor's note: This is the first in
a series of articles about some of
the members of the East Gadsden
High School chorus who will be
making the trip to New York in
April to perform at Carnegie Hall.

To say that 17-year-old
LaMorris McSwain, has come a
long way is an understatement.
But today, the future is bright for
the high school senior. McSwain
is one of the 20 East Gadsden
High School students who will
perform at Carnegie Hall on April
15. After graduation he plans to
attend Florida A & M UNiversity
and major in music.
Rewind.
LaMorris came into the world
in trouble. His mother said he
weighed 2.9 pounds at birth. He
was in an incubator and spend his
first two months in the Tallahassee
Memorial Hospital neo-natal care
unit. Shortly after he was born his
little body suffered a stroke result-
ing in cerebral palsy. The stroke
left his body stiff and subsequent-
ly he was unable to walk for the
first 14 months of his life. He
endured years of painful physical
therapy and wore braces on is legs
until he was 14 years old.
Because his mother Juanja
Hollis and his maternal grand-
mother Earlene Hollis both
worked they were unable to pro-
vide the extra care that La Morris'
medical condition required.' That
special care, nurturing and more
was provided by his paternal
grandmother Louise Poole
McSwain.
"You could say he all but raised
me. My grandmother was an
evangelist and all I heard was
gospel music. She sang to me all
the time and I came to love music
because that's really all I knew.
about music," he said.

The McSwain family was
known throughout the county for
their gospel singing talent and
LaMorris seemed to fit right in,
recalled Earlene Hollis. She first
remember him singing at four-
years-old.
"I heard him singing one day in
the house. He was just a little fel-
low. I had no idea he would go
this far. I'm so proud of him," she
said.
He started singing at churches
throughout the county and some
became a sought after talent.
People marvelled at his courage
and his ambition. He didn't allow
his physical condition to limit his
accomplishments.
As a teenager, LaMorris
encountered another medical chal-
lenge. When he was 13 he was
diagnosed as diabetic and must
give himself daily injections. But
for every adversity -in LaMorris'
life there was a counter balance.
"I met Mr. Leroy Colston. He
became my role model and my
mentor," he said. Colston a minis-
ter and retired educator, was the
choral director at Carter-
Parramore Middle School when
LaMorris was a student.
He credits Colston with train-
ing his voice and pushing him to
use all of his "God-given" talent.
Under Colston's coaching
LaMorris' flourished.
Fast forward.
When he entered East Gadsden
High School it was a given that he
would sing in the chorus. His tenor
voice had become stronger and
choral director Rasheen
Richardson brought out more of


his talents.
"When LaMorris sings, he
sings from his soul. His voice tells
the story of all of the difficulties in
his life. The story is told in the
quality of his voice because he
sings from the depths of his heart,"
Richardson said.
Preparing for the performance
requires a lot of rehearsals. Added
to that the chorus will be required
to sing win German, Spanish,
French and some African dialects.
He has not taken a foreign lan-
guage and must practice extra hard
to get the enunciation right. The
students have been given CDs of
the music they will sing and he has
dedicated hours to listening.
LaMorris is excited
about the trip to Carnegie Hall. He
has traveled to the northeastern
United States with his family but
has never been to New York City.
He said he is looking forward to
the experience.
"I think I will really learn more
about music. It will make me a
better vocalist and it will help me
come back and help others," he
said. The family is excited too.
Especially his sister Nydia who
has always supported and praised
her big bother.
"I was speechless when he told
me he was going to New York and
that they were going to sing at
Carnegie Hall and see a Broadway
play. All I want him to do is get me
Fantasia's autograph," Nydia said.
The students will see "The
Color Purple" and Fantasia
(American Idol winner) has the
lead role.
The dream won't be realized
unless students can raise more
money. Right now, they need
about $10,000. To help, make

but I kinda wanted to hang
around. I was wondering how
this thing might unfold if Mrs.
Carlton suddenly appeared in
the doorway.
I bet she'd whip Ralph and
Slick both.
"Well, she might come after
us," Pam reached over and stole
my last fry, "and I am not
running through that parking lot
tonight!"
We were up front paying for
our meal when Ralph stumbled
into the phone booth. We leaned
an ear in that direction to see


face!
Johnny Horton was singing
"North To Alaska" as we ran
through the parking lot. I was
thinking about taking him up on-
it as Rollin and Pam dived into
the back seat. I hit the ignition
and burned rubber leaving there.
Pam stuck her head up when she
finally righted herself and said,
"If we are going to keep doing
this, I suggest you start parking
closer to the front door!"
I didn't go back for months.
But Pam and Buddy and Rollin
assured me things had calmed
down.
We were enjoying our fries
when Mrs. Carlton phoned for
Ralph. We heard Slick Tosh tell
her that he hadn't seen Ralph all
day; which, of course, was just a
tad more than a little white lie.
Ralph was anchored down at the
far comer of the bar and by the
way he was washing down those
Carling Black Label beers we
surmised he'd been there for a
while!
Mrs. Carlton called twice more
before I could work my way
though a cheeseburger.
Ralph ordered another round
or two but I could tell he looked
a little more concerned after
each call. Pam was ready to go

exactly how grownups handled
these types of situations. Ralph
straightened up when he heard
the concerned hello on the other
end, "Honey," he near 'bout

My wrists and ankles are a little
sore from the tape, but I'm
going to be o.k."

By LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor

"It is an extraordinary honor
to have the Southern Watercolor
Society exhibition here," said
Tricia Collins, executive direc-
tor of the Gadsden Arts Center.
"It's wonderful that we have this
gorgeous facility that can
accommodate such a thing."

Gadsden County natives
William McKeown and Dean
Mitchell will each have a paint-

It was through McKeown
that Southern Watercolor
Society members became
acquainted with the Gadsden
Arts Center.
"Happily, Bill McKeown is a
member of this esteemed socie-
ty and is an active member,"
Collins said. "He also serves on
the Gadsden Arts Center exhibi-

her stabbed twice in the heart
and Daniel attempting to stab his
own chest.
Kathy reportedly cried out to
her friend: "He stabbed me! He
killed me!"
Haley testified that she didn't
know how badly injured Kathy
was, and stayed with her, praying,
until an ambulance arrived to
transport her to Wakulla High
School, where a helicopter was
waiting to airlift her to
Tallahassee Memorial Hospital.
There, surgeons tried to repair the
damage to her heart, but she died
on the operating table.
In his testimony, Daniel Chavez
said through a Spanish interpreter
that he had gone over to Haley's
house that day to ask .his wife to
come back home. If she refused,
he said he intended to kill
himself.
"I was on my knees; I was
asking forgiveness," the soft-
spoken Chavez said through
tears. When she refused to return
to him, he took out his knife and
offered it to her, saying she
should kill him because without
her he was nothing. She said no,
and after he opened the knife and
held it before his chest, she
grabbed at his arm and -
somehow, he didn't know how, it
happened so fast she was
stabbed in the chest.
In a tough cross-examination,
Assistant State Attorney Lorena
Vollrath-Bueno questioned
Chavez about his version of
events. "You testified to this jury
today that you were trying to kill
yourself," she asked.
"Yes," Chavez answered.
"But you didn't kill yourself."
"Unfortunately, no."
"In fact the person who died
was Kathy Partida."
"Si."
"And the person who killed her*
is you."
"No," Chavez answered. "I was
going to kill myself, not her."
"You stabbed her in the heart."
"No," Chavez said. "I wanted to
kill myself."
"You stabbed her not once, but
twice in the heart," said Bueno.
"It's not true."
Asked about referring to Kathy
Chavez as "aquella" or "that one"
in a phone call with his uncle
before the stabbing, Chavez
admitted to it, but insisted it was
not disrespectful. Maybe his
uncle, who grew up in a federal
district in Mexico and had more
education, thought of aquella as a
disrespectful way to refer to one's
wife. But Chavez, with only a
fifth grade education, growing up
on a mountain in Bocua, Mexico,
hours from the nearest town, it
was how his family spoke, how
his boss spoke.
Later in the cross, Bueno asked
Chavez, "The only reason you
went over to that house was that
you needed to do something you
couldn't do over the phone."
No, Chavez meekly denied.
Though the jury was never told
because of a concern that it might
prejudice their view of him,
Chavez came to the United States
illegally in 1998.
Jurors did hear that he worked a,
number of jobs, including at
Kelly Brothers Sheet Metal in
Tallahassee. He met Kathy
Partida in November 2004 at a
flea market and they were


married a few months later.
They lived in Quincy for a time,
where Kathy Partida and her
family had lived for many yearss.
then the couple moved to
Tallahassee to be closer to his
job.
In a move that drew outrage
from some members of the
family, a former boyfriend of
Partida's was called as a witness -
Don Lemieux of Greensboro.
Lemieux claimed that during
their relationship, Partida tried to
choke him two or three times for
no reason. On cross-examination
by Wakulla chief prosecutor Jack
Campbell, Lemieux admitted that.
he had been convicted of several
felonies related to running up
debts and bad check charges.-
Lemieux denied that he was,
testifying to get back at an old
girlfriend.
In a closing argument that grew
in loud outrage, Campbell
insisted that the evidence showed
the murder was intentional, that
even if, as Daniel Chavez
claimed, he had accidentally hit
Kathy in the chest once with the.
knife, when he drew the knife out
of her chest and struck her again,
it became premeditated. One of
those strikes was hard enough to
cut through a bone in her chest.
"If it was an accident,"
Campbell told the jury, "there
would have been one stab, the
knife would be on the ground and
he would be applying direct
pressure to her chest. Is that how
they were found? No!"
"'You killed me! You stabbed
me!' This are the final words we
have from Kathy," Campbell said. -
"Kathy knew it was no accident..
Daniel Chavez brought death."
In response, Suber, who is from
Colombia, made the closing
argument for the defense,.
speaking in her Spanish-accented
English. "On Sept. 18, 2005," she
began,. "a terrible tragedy
occurred. A tragedy that is still
here. A tragedy that we have
heard about the last two days. A
tragedy that will stay in the minds
of very many here."
During the trial, the defense was
frustrated in its effort to get a
"Letter to God" admitted into'
evidence. The letter was written
by Kathy Chavez and found in
her Bible after her death. In the
letter, apparently, she wrote about
the struggles she faced in her life
but did not mention her husband.
The defense argued to the court
that the failure to admit the letter
was grounds for a mistrial.
Wakulla Circuit Judge N.
Sanders Sauls denied the motion,
noting there was no date on the
letter, and found the letter's
contents were not relevant to the
case.
After the jury returned its
verdict and was released, Suber
said the defense waived a pre-
sentence investigation was ready
to go ahead with pronouncement
of sentence, which guidelines
dictate will be an order of life in
prison.
The victim's family members
were caught unprepared by the
move and, since they have the"
right to make victim impact
statements to the court, Judge
Sauls scheduled the sentencing
for March 13 to let family decide
what, if anything, they wish to'
say.

The Gadsden County Fellowship Mass Choir entertained during the festival Saturday.


Downtown festival, parade mark


Black History Month


By ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor


Despite a dismal start and a
threatening sky, the annual
Black History Parade and
Festival went off without a
hitch Saturday morning.
Hundreds lined the street to see
nearly fifty entries that
included three marching bands,
walking units and several
floats. Several politicians took
the opportunity to meet
prospective voters up close by
walking with friends and


supporters and passing out
literature along the route.
The sun broke through just
after noon and the crowds
came to the Courthouse Square
to see, be seen, eat, and enjoy
the music.
"This is a great turnout, ".said
Supervisor of Elections Shirley
Green Knight surveying the
crowd of mostly African-
Americans dressed in varying
degrees of African-inspired
attire and hip-hop.
Hubert Brown, candidate for
State Representative for


Miss Bert of Tallahassee displayed her African attired dolls
and fabrics.


District 8, had his family out
campaigning for him Saturday.
While Brown worked his way
through the crowd introducing
himself and trying to assess
what people want from a
representative his wife, Gina,
was busy gathering signatures
to help him get on the ballot.
"I've met some great people
today. The people have been
warm and friendly to me and
my family and we appreciate
that," she said.
On stage the Gadsden County
Fellowship Mass Choir, under
the direction of Rev. Leroy
Colston, entertained the crowd
for nearly an hour with
contemporary gospel. The
temperatures eventually
reached 80 degrees and it
almost seemed like a late
spring day instead of mid-
winter.
Food, glorious food, is one of
the major attractions of most
festivals, and vendors were
ready and willing to try to
satisfy any appetite. Even
before the festival began, the
smell of smoke from bar-be-
cue permeated the early
afternoon air. Hot fish
sandwiches, hamburgers,
smoked turkey legs, candied
apples and more was enough to
keep the crowd of nearly 800
filled.
The Annual African
American Brain Brawl was
held last week. The winners
were: first place, Triumphant
Church of God and second
,place went to Pine Bloom
Missionary Baptist Church.
Trophies, donated by the Rev.
George Madry, were given in
each category.


Above, Bainbridge (GA) Buffalo Soldier members participated
in the parade and attended the festival later. Below, children
were treated to free facing painting.

verse of the week:
And it came to pass on the seventh day, that they rose early about the dawning of the day,
and compassed the city after the same seven times only on the that day they compassed
the city seven times. Joshua 6:15 (KJV)

The children of Israel wondered in the
wilderness for forty years. They hald
fought many battles during that time.
The city of Jericho was one of their final
If I I battles and God told Joshua what they
were to do to gain victory over the city.
1 God said to gather the men of war and
to march around the city for six days and
no one was to make a sound. On the
seventh day the priests were to take the
rams horn and march with the men and
they were to march around seven times
on this day.
He said when they make the final
round they are to shout with the voice of
triumph for the Lord was going to give
them the city. Joshua did just as the Lord
commanded him and they were
victorious.

S LiVe: i nen ana I
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to live in he ,
past? The items we would find in our homes would look very Then \ & NOW
different from the ones that we see today. With the Inventions
of electricity, engines, and many other great things, people's lives have greatly changed
over the last few centuries. We have undoubtedly come a long way.
In the past, people lit their homes with candles. Since the beginning of the 20th Century,
we have had electric light in our homes with the invention of the light bulb. Horse-drawn
carriages were once the preferred method of travel, until Henry Ford created the Model T.
Today, cars have come so far that we are accustomed to using them, and many people
probably take them for granted. At one time, a quill and ink well were needed to write let-
ters on parchment paper; today, we have notebook paper and ink pens. Slide rules were
once used to calculate figures. Advancement in technology has taken us so far that many
math students carry in their pocket a machine, called a graphing calculator, that will do
complex math equations. One of the most obvious advances is the telephone. People
used to rely on telegraphs and Morse Code to communicate. Today, cell phones small
enough to fit into the palm of our hand are common and can be used almost anywhere a
person can travel. Airplanes have replaced tedious land and sea journeys; crude maps
have been replaced by GPS systems; electric blankets have replaced bed warmers; and
the Pony Express, which was once the fastest mail service in the world, is just a distant


memory because we now have e-mail.

February is Black History Month and Havana Middle School is
fortunate enough to have two exhibits on display. One display is from
Darrell Isiac, of "Dim Thangs". He also has a collection of posters,
Malcolm X on a U S postage stamp,black dancers, and more. He also
has authentic Bufflo Solider artifacts. Mr. Isiac has a book with pictures
of his collections on sale at local hair salons.
HMS also has a collection from Mr.Wilbur Davis. The Oba Crown
from the area of Benin/ Nigeria. The crown is worn by the head of the
tribe during certain occasions and is a sign of spiritual leadership.
Among other items on display from Mr. Davis' collection are: West
African stool with inlaid bead work, a dancer's mask, Moshamboy from
the Congo Ecoi from the Cameroon, and a carving of a Togo warrior.
The African continent has produced a great diversity of art from pre-
historic times to the present day, and HMS is greatful to these two col-
lectors for sharing their treasure. The photo shows students taking a close
look at the collection.
