'Times News Editor
The 18-year-old behind the wheel of a car
that slid off State Road 12 and into a tree early
Friday morning may face vehicular homicide
charges pending an investigation into the
4reck that claimed the life of 15-year-old
Christopher Richardson.
According to Sgt. Troy Gilyard of the
Quincy Police Department, Patrick Smith, 18,
was driving a 1999 four-door Ford west on
Highway 12 King Street around 2 a.m. As
the car crossed a small bridge and drove up an
S-shaped incline, it slid off the road.
"'The driver lost control of the vehicle and
started to slide off King Street," Sgt. Gilyard
said. "The passenger side collided with a tree."
Christopher died at the scene, said Gilyard,
who was at the scene. The youth was an East
Gadsden High School student.
Smith and two backseat passengers, Clarence
Rogers. 19, and Quarterrios Davis, 15, were

City looks into utility bill increases


Consumer complaints fuel discussion over Progress Energy debt


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
The Quincy City Commission was
informed Tuesday night that citizens
can expect to pay higher utility bills at
.leas for the next few months.
Both Commissioners Slerrie Taylor
and Derrick Elias askea the city's
manager the reason for the higher than
usual bills. Both commissioners said
they had been bombarded with calls

concern cited

from citizens complaining about their
Bills.
Bill Bogan, city manager was asked
by Taylor the reason for the increases.
"We had some of the highest utility
bills we've had in months. What is he
reason? I want o know why they are so


high. What's happening?" asked
Taylor.
Taylor said that she suspected there
is a problem when the fuel adjustment
cost was higher'that the actual utility
bill. She asked why it cost more to
deliver electricity to a home than it
cost for the actual consumption by the
customer.
Bogan explained that citizens were
not being overcharged and that recent
cold days was the reason for increased


consumption resulting in the higher
bills.
His entire explanation changed a few
minutes later when Commissioner
Elias asked Bogan if the $404,000 the
city owed Progress Energy when the
2007 consumption was trued up in
December. In January, the company
wrote a letter to Bogan saying that the
city could pay the debt with

Local cattlemen vote to sponsor natural beef program



Participants will raise steer locally without use of hormones, antibiotics


By LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor
The Gadsden County Cattlemen's
Association found a way to cut out the
middleman..
At a recent association meeting,
members voted to sponsor a natural
beef program to promote healthful,
safe options for marketing beef cattle
directly to consumers.
Dubbed Red Hills Beef, cattlemen
participating in the program will raise
their steer locally without adding
hormones or antibiotics.


Hormones are used to promote rapid
growth; antibiotics often have to be'
used on animals that are shipped and
thus less resistant to contagions.
"It's being done all across the
country," GCCA member Ron Bartlett
said.' "There is some resistance by
consumers to some of the practices
,used. By adding anabolic steroid
implants in the ear, cattlemen can get
more for their cattle. A lot of
consumers would prefer they not do
that. So we're piloting this program by
growing beef locally and being
satisfied with less efficient production


- if we can get a premium. We thought
by cutting out the middle man we
could make beef more economical and
sell it at lower prices than a grocery
store."
If an animal in the program becomes
ill, it is removed from the program and
treated, Bartlett said.
Red Hills Beef will work like this:
Local cattlemen will raise cattle
without using steroids or antibiotics.
Because they can't sell processed meat
directly to consumers, they would sell
the steer to customers, then transport
the animal to a slaughterhouse in


Climax, Ga. Consumers can specify
how thick they would like the steaks to
be and how much hamburger they
want..
They can choose whether they want
the beef aged for 14 days, a process
called dry aging.
"Dry aging is what makes steaks
good," Bartlett said. "It's what you
find in high-end restaurants."
It's a lot of meat a year's supply,
for most but Bartlett said it's worth
the up-front cost to have choice meat

Local car dealer helping fund youth baseball
10


By LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor
This was Sam-McDaniel's line
of thinking: Chevrolet has money
available for community projects,
the Quincy Recreation
Department's Dixie Youth
Program could use a helping
hand, why not put the two
together?
So that's what he did.
The service parts manager at
Plattner's Chevrolet Buick in
Quincy contacted the corporate


office about getting funding, and
the dealership is now selling
raffle tickets at $5 each for a
Chevy Tahoe.
McDaniel said that and other
fundraising events Saturday are
ways to give back to Gadsden
County.
"It helps our community," he
said. "My kids used to play for
the program. I might as well turn
around and give back to them."
Saturday, the dealership is
offering oil changes for $18.95
and car washes for a donation.


There will also be barbecue
meals available for $5 each.
All proceeds go to the Quincy
Recreation Department.
Chevrolet has announced it will
donate $500 to the youth
program in April, and has already
donated 10 baseball kits.
The drawing for the Tahoe will
be closer to the end of the
baseball season.
Tickets are available at
Plattner's on 2039 West Jefferson
St. or at the Quincy Recreation
Department.

Correction
The ladder used by the Quincy
Fire Department Feb. 27 in the
rescue of two passengers
stranded in a plane that had
crashed into a tree was long
enough to reach the accident
victims. Quincy firefighter work
with the Tallahassee Fire
Department as part of a regional
Search and Rescue team; their
role that day was to use their 75-
foot ladder to secure the plane,
which was unstable. The times
indicated otherwise in a March 6
story. The Times regrets the

them are out of work and the need is always
there," said Karnell Jones, Gadsden County's
Refuge House coordinator.
Members of the organization will begin
collecting food and donations around noon
Saturday. Last year, the public donated four
shopping carts filled with food and non-

Benefit consultant

to be available for

senior citizens

by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
Are you 65 years old or older? Then head on
down to the Somon Scott Senior Citizens Center
Thursday, March 20, at 10:30 a.m. for a check on
your medical benefits. Many senior citizens, no
matter the income, may be eligible for additional
benefits.
Eugenia Johnson, benefit consultant for
Wellcare a Medicare approved organization, said
many people don't know the options available to
them. Wellcare is a healthplan with a Medicare
contract that is renewed annually and the
availability of coverage beyond the end of the
current year is not guaranteed, Also, benefits may
vary by whichever plan the individual selects.
Johnson, who is not allowed to solicit, says that
Wellcare can help people get more from
Medicare. Accodring to her, the company offers
three options and she can assist if necessary.
"It's easy to become eligible and there are no
monthly premiums," she said. The programs are
open to anyone over 65 or who has been disabled
for two years or more .

Contemplation




The monster in the mail


Commissioners Sherrie Taylor and Derrick
Elias weren't the only people getting calls last
week about the high utility bills. I got a few
myself. Mostly from people who said they
had also met the monster in the white
envelope.
When my bill topped $300 per month, I
resigned myself to the fact I am never going
to get any relief. But then after a few
conversations last week, I guess I'm just
lucky.
"I wish I could get a $300 utility bill," one
man told me. He said all the kids are gone
and it's just he and his wife at home and their
bill routinely tops $500 each month. Like me,
they realized that the bills have absolutely
nothing to do with consumption. So, the only
remedy is to pay it and move on.
A woman I've known for many years called
to say that her bill topped $600. To add insult
to injury she called City Hall 15 times
between 8 a.m. and 10 a.m. only to get a
recording saying that City Hall was closed.
Oops,'it seems that the only person who can
take the telephone off the night recording was
out sick with the flu so the recording simply
continued. It's odd to me that no one
wondered why no calls were coming through
the advanced telephone system they have.
To save money, I decided to take my own
recycling. Every little bit helps and that was,
afterall, an extra $5.50 per month. On my last
bill I noticed the $5.50 was still on so I
questioned it.
It was explained to me that yes, the $5.50
had been taken off but it remained on the bill
because it was the "corrected" bill. The only


problem is that I never got the first bill
becasue it was never mailed, I only got the
"corrected" bill. I just said I understood and
left. I knew there was no way I was every
going to understand it. There was no reason
to take it any further.
When Commissioner Taylor was
expressing her concerns about last month (or
it is this months) bills, she asked if the meter
readers also checked meters to see if they
were running too fast or too slow. The
meters, she was told, have been checked and
that some had even been replaced because
they were not calibrated properly. This
checking is part of the readers' job.
You'll be glad to know that meter readers
are also tested quarterly. They go to
Tallahassee, where they sit down at a
computer and take a test. The test determines
how fast and how accurate they read meters. I
am happy to know that we no longer have a
meter reader problem. Everyone remembers
when bills were high because we had
difficulty with hiring meter readers who
could actually read meters.
But take comfort in knowing that for the
next three months your utility bill will be
higher than normal and the reason is due to
the fact that we owe Progress Energy an
additional $404,000 and it has to be paid off
by April. This has been lovingly passed on to
us in the form of higher fuel adjustment costs.
Keep an eye out after April to see if the fuel
adjustment cost drops. I will but I doubt it.
We'll just have to wait and see what the
reason for higher bills will be after April. It
would be our April Fool's Day gift.

with,

Kes
When we hunker down to talk, we're all on the same level, by Kesley
Colbert, just a good ole boy that likes to write.


Arlo starts a tradition...


Arlo Cunningham caught up with me as I
was leaving school, "Kes, I don't own but
two good shirts and ain't neither one of
'em green!"
We plodded along in silence. I hated
green. It was probably my least favorite
color. I was more partial to blue or brow-
"What exactly is St. Patrick's Day?" Arlo
interrupted my color thoughts.
Silence overtook us again.......mostly
because I couldn't think of anything to say.
We didn't celebrate St. Patrick's Day back
then. We were big on Easter, Christmas
and the 4th of July. But if they didn't let us
out of school, how big a holiday could it
be?
I didn't even know who St. Patrick was.
This was years before them little fellers
started selling cookies on t. v. It had to do
with Ireland. Or someplace like that over in
the old country. And we had Irish
descendants in our little community,
including our family! But Dad was too
busy working to turn aside for nothing
except fairly renowned holidays. If anyone
else broke out in celebration around March
17, it completely slipped by me.
Susie Branon was behind the green wave.
She had invited everyone out to her house
for a party. That wasn't unusual. She spent
her study hall time conjuring up ways for
us to congregate. She'd hold Sadie
Hawkins dances, spin-the-bottle parties,
Ground Hog recognition day, back to
school "shockers", getting out of school
celebrations, last Saturday in January
commemoration......
A St. Patrick's Day get together "at her
place" came as no surprise. But the
reminder to "wear something green" put a
new wrinkle in the works. I was hard
pressed to follow her logic. She never
demanded orange and black at Halloween
or red at Christmas.
"It's her cousin." Arlo must'a read my
mind. "He's from Russell, Kentucky. I
think his name is Tim O'Meara or O'Heara
or something like that. Russell must be a
big, sophisticated city where they place a
lot of stock in this St. Patrick's Day thing. I
reckon Susie is just trying to impress him."
I turned and marveled at Arlo: For a guy
who was "a little slow on the uptake" he
seemed to know an awful lot. And I'd
never seem him so talkative. "Arlo, are you
sweet on Susie?"
Well, since she let her hair grow out a
mite, you know she ain't half bad."
We all went. On a Friday night in
McKenzie, Tennessee, in mid March of
1963 there was pitiful little else to do. I
didn't wear green. I, thankfully, didn't


have anything that was green! And I
figured once things got rolling, it wouldn't
make any difference.
Bo Edwards pinched me pretty hard
before I even got up on the porch. I
whapped him up high on the left shoulder!
He was a couple of grades ahead of me and
a little taller but if he wanted to fight, I
wasn't going to back down!
Kay King pinched me in the hall as.I was
going to get something to drink. I was too
startled to say anything! Kay was also a
grade ahead of me and she was supposed to
be going steady with Marvin Killebrew. I
let it pass but I was munching on a brownie
a few minutes later and looking for
something to drink besides that awful
looking green punch when it dawned on
me. Kay was really very attractive! Lately
she,had been speaking to me between
Algebra II and lunch. And she had never
been accused of being subtle! I perked up a
little. I had never gone out with an "older"
woman. But this St. Patrick's Day party
had suddenly taken on some new
possibilities.
I figured I'd mosey around a bit and
when the moment presented itself I'd pinch
her right back! Kinda let her know that I
hadn't missed her signal.....
Before I could execute my plan Arlo
came by sporting a big green ribbon pinned
to his cream colored shirt. I thought he
looked rather ridiculous. Before I could tell
him so he introduced me to Tim O'Leary
or O'Heary....... He shook my hand and
drawled, "Howdy, how's you'ins doing?"
Russell, Kentucky, ain't near as big or as
sophisticated as we first calculated.
I was fixing to spill the beans about the
only reason for the stupid ribbon was Arlo
didn't have no green shirt when Mrs.
Branon pinched me on the arm! I jumped
three feet and before I hit the ground Arlo
was off rattling his "Irish" ribbon in front
of Susie.
I feigned interest in Tim's East Kentucky
coal mine stories as I worked my way
toward the back porch. Kay was last seen
heading in that direction. She had her back
turned as I eased my way past the giant
fern Miss Branon had so carefully
cultivated. I pinched Kay lightly to let her
know I'd been thinking about her too.
Before she "came down" Scotty McCullar
pinched the blue living tar right out of me!
It was the last pinching "straw"! He
wasn't any bigger than me! Kay slapped
me as I grabbed Scotty by the throat and
we all three tumbled into the giant fern,

The wind of heaven


Tuesday night, the red light signaling an
email delivery to my Blackberry flashed
placidly as I sat on the couch and I pushed
a button, squinted and stared.
The email was from Culley's
Meadowwood Funeral Home; in it was a
photo of a familiar face, John Drake.
Impossible. Just not possible.
I guess most of us react in similar ways
when someone dies.
I had not been aware John was even ill;
his wife told me he was diagnosed with
cancer in December. He moved on to
greener pastures Saturday.
I met John in late 2006 when he came in
the paper to place an ad for two, black
Arabian horses. Faster than you could say,
"Clinical Arabian horse addiction," we had
jumped into an animated conversation
about the breed's traits and made plans for
me to go out to his farm in, Havana and
look at a filly he had for sale.
He had several, actually, but it was the
stately, solid bay filly that caught me hook,
line and sinker, easing over to me to put
her muzzle on my shoulder.
He had a great eye for horseflesh and
owned three mares out of Drakkar, a
straight Egyptian stallion standing in
California.
As we stood outside the round pen, I
realized he was as wild about Arabians as I

was.
I made an offer on the filly but backed
out later, it just wasn't practical at the time,
but she was to die for. The filly was to die
for.
I knew he was a musician, and that he
owned Drake's Carpets he once "loaned"
me (I still have them) back copies of the
Arabian horse magazine he subscribed to
and at his office we discussed different
farms and training and breeders and
bloodlines, of course. He often spoke
fondly of his family he and his wife of 47
years have four sons, a daughter, eight
grandchildren and one great-
granddaughter.
When I read the beautiful, obituary his
daughter Marlisa Faris wrote with a few
finishing touches added by his wife, Doris,
I realized I had known only a little bit
about the man whose motto was, "If you
are going to do it, do it right the first time."
I haven't seen him for about six months,
ran into him at the grocery store. But I'll
miss him still. I'm glad I got to know the
man, that our paths crossed and we were
able to dish about horses.
An old Arabian proverb says, "The wind
of heaven is that which blows between a
horse's ears."
It surely encircles the Drakes' house as
well.

Editor

Editor;
I am contacting you in regards to your story about the
aircraft accident on 2/27/08. I am a member of Quincy Fire
Department and responder to this incident. I must say I was in
absolute shock at the first reading of your article, Followed by
Sanger. As a member of QFD I have grown accustomed to the
slings and arrows of the untrained eye, yet must say that the
story printed by you leaves me aghast. Quincy Fire
Department did an outstanding Job in extraordinary
circumstances on that day. I will forever take pride in the job
performed by my brothers and me. As A first responder it is
drilled into us to evaluate the job we did and look for the
things we could have done better. Other than a few minor
issues there is very little we could have done better.
We responded quickly and upon arrival cooperated with
those agencies on scene. We set up our 75ft ladder. Then sent
up a Gadsden EMS Medic as well as our own rescue
specialist/EMT and made initial contact with the plane. For
the safety of responders as well as those entrapped it was
necessary to begin stabilization of the aircraft. We were in the
process of doing this when Tallahassee fire department arrived
with USAR Taskforce 7. While it is not overly publicized
QFD is Part of Urban Search and Rescue Taskforce 7. We
have trained over 85% of our officers to be apart of this
taskforce, each member requiring a minimum of 352 hours of
extensive training to be considered an operational member.
Thus making QFD one of the most highly trained
Departments in the area, if not the most trained. Once TFD
extended its platform to the wreckage we informed them of the
stabilization completed and worked together to stabilize and
extricate the endangered passengers. This Operation needed 2
aerial trucks to complete a speedy safe rescue. QFD could have
completed this operation alone with only our 75 ft. ladder but
it would have only increased the risk to those entrapped. Once
the victims were rescued a TFD chief shook all our hands and
said it was great to be on scene, and know the abilities of the ,
other team because they
had trained with them. Taskforce 7 had a great day. Quincy
Fire Department had a great day.
As I stated before I have become used to the
misunderstanding of others in this profession. Someone always
has an opinion about what we could have done better. I have
only sighed with acceptance in that Tallahassee News has given
all the credit to TFD zip to QFD. Yet today I am unable to
contain myself Your article in the Gadsden County Times
made my department look incompetent and unprepared.
Nothing could be farther from the truth. Quincy Fire
Department responded with Professionalism, Ability and
Cooperation. We did our job and did it right. We did not balk
or struggle at all for control of what is our territory but
operated single-mindedly for the best interest of those in need.
If anything, you of all news sources should have come to the
side of the local boys or even spoken to one of US. Yet instead
you printed untruth and hearsay. Simply looking at your
online photos of this event will confirm my story. As a man I
can take a slap in the face, but the honor of the men I stand
with deserves much better. You owe them an apology. I
personally was planning on saving this week's paper as a
memento of a job well done. Now I'm not sure I want to wrap
a mullet in it:
Yours truly
James P Honderick
Editor:
James A. Godwin AKA "Chopper" to his friends, I would
like to thank you all for your comforting warmth, kind hearts,
prayers and visits in our time of sorrow.
Jim had many close friends who loved him. They were great
support and comfort to him never forgetting him with their
calls and visits.
Thanks to ADCU and TMH nurses for their love and
support the past 4 years, Dr. Sheedy, his nurse Patti, Thomas
from BBH and Gadsden City Sheriff Dept. Jim is gone but
will never be forgotten.

6 The Gadsden County Times March 13,2008


State education commissioner visits local school


By LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor

Florida Education
Commissioner Eric Smith
stepped lightly into a class-
room at Stewart Street
Elementary Friday morning,
interrupted several times by
the persistent cell phone.
It is that time of year and
both Smith and Gadsden
County Schools
Superintendent Reginald
James are hoping the legisla-
ture will. fund several educa-
tion initiatives this year,
including an expansion of the
Florida Teacher Advancement
Program currently in place at
Stewart Street.
"I'm very proud of the
leadership and the hard work
going on in the district, and
I'm also proud of the work
that's going on in the class-
rooms," Smith said.
"People are working hard
to see that progress is sus-
tained."
In the three years the pro-
gram has been in place at
Stewart Street, the school rose
from a school grade of F in
2004-2005 to a grade of C in
2005-2006 and B in the 2006-
2007 school year.
Many James included -
think FTAP made the differ-
ence. The Teacher
Advancement Program, oper-
ated by the National Institute
for Excellence in Teaching,
aims to. attract teachers and
offer them training that can
further not only their success,
but their students' as well.
"I'm proud of you guys,"
James told teachers Friday.
"You are without a question a
success story. You've come
all the way from the bottom to
the edge of an A."
Smith quizzed teacher and
FTAP mentor Karen Toussaint
a bit, asking her about FTAP
components including cluster
meetings..
Each of the school's 48
teachers participates in FTAP.

classroom Friday. (Photo by Leslie Roberts)


Teachers are divided by the
grades they teach into clus-
ters.
For example, pre-kinder-
garten, kindergarten and some
exceptional student education
teachers meet in one cluster
while teachers of first- and
second-graders meet in anoth-
er cluster.
There, as Toussaint
explained to Smith, they ana-


lyze data and participate in
word testing.
Toussaint said she's been
involved in the Stewart Street
FTAP since its inception there
three years ago, and that she
thinks it has made her a better
teacher.
"It's helped me to analyze
data better, to reflect on how
the teaching went and to
adjust for the next time," she


said.
Each cluster meets twice
weekly.
James plans to expand the
program to James A. Shanks
Middle School, and hopes to
get funding to put FTAP in
every Gadsden County school
eventually.
"Ingrained in FTAP is staff


development, consistent staff
development," James said.
"We're just honored (Smith)
felt compelled to come over
and see the success. I gave
him a proposal we'll see
how it works out. I'm really
encouraged about getting
funding for the expansion of
FTAP."

Hinson using role on state athletic board to help Gadsden


By LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor

As the Florida High School
Athletic Association Board of
Directors moves closer to mak-
ing a decision on who will be its
next executive director,
Gadsden County School Board
member Eric Hinson sees his
role on the board as an exten-
sion of resources to local
schools.
Named to the board roughly
two years ago, Hinson says he's
been able to use information
gleaned from meetings of the
statewide association to help out
Gadsden County coaches and
athletes.
"It helps me keep kids and
coaches abreast of what's going
on," he said.
Hinson, who is running for
re-election this year, had a long
history in athletics:
The 1992 Havana Northside
High School graduate broke
three state football records in
1991 and was the school's last
football coach. The school
closed in 2003 after East
Gadsden High School was built.
He was named Big Bend 1A
Coach of the Year in 2003 and
next, took a job as head football
coach in Jefferson County. In


Eric Hinson

advisor for the Florida

University football team; he
now serves as an academic advi-
sor to FAMU's College of

Athletic Association was found-
ed on April 9, 1920 by a group
of 29 high school principals
who met at Peabody Hall on the
University of Florida campus in
Gainesville.
In 1997, the Florida
Legislature gave the FHSAA
statutory recognition as the offi-
cial governing body for inter-


scholastic athletics in Florida.

board chose four finalists for its
executive director position.

James Browder Browder
is currently the superintendent
of schools in Lee County, Fort
Myers. Prior to his tenure at the
Lee County School District, he
spent 16 years as principal of
three different Fort Myers-area
high schools. A former member
of the FHSAA Board of
Directors and current member
of the Florida Association of
District School Superintendents,

University in 1977.
Samuel "Sonny" Hester -
Hester is currently the senior
associate executive director of
the FHSAA, a position he has
held since 2007 after serving as

letic operations and officials for
a year. Prior to his tenure at

Munroe softball splits week

A loss to Blountstown followed by a win over Graceville was all the rain would allow
last week for the Lady Cats. In a week where they should have played four games,
including a makeup game from a rainout, the team played only two.
On Monday night Blountstown hit the ball and the Lady Cats responded with too
many errors as the dropped their 2nd game of the season. The Tigers outhit the Cats
eleven hits to seven and scored six runs in the top of the fifth to take a lead Munroe could
not catch up to. Up until the fifth, the score Was tied at 2-2.
Munroe was led by an 8th grader and a freshman at the plate. 8th grader Haleigh
Corbally and freshman Kristin Allen were both 2 for 4 with a double each and an RBI
each. Malorie McKinnon got her first loss from the mound. The senior lefty struck out
four and walked only one batter in seven innings of work. She gave up ten hits and saw
her record drop to 3-1 on the season.
Thursday night the team hosted Graceville. It was the second time the two teams met
in less than a week and both games were close until the end. Thursday night's game
found the Lady Cats and 8th grade pitcher, Haleigh Corbally, on the best end of a
shutout. The Lady Cats won 4-0 after scoring one run in the second, one run in the
fourth and two runs in the sixth.
Corbally' s pitching kept the Tiger bats silent most of the night. The right hander
struck out 14 batters and allowed only two base hits. She evened her pitching record at
1-1 on the season. At the plate for Munroe, Kaitlyn Rentz was two for three and Crystal
Wade was two for three with an RBI. Corbally helped her own cause with one hit and
two RBIs. Munroe had rainouts' with East Gadsden and Aucilla Christian. They are cur-
rently 3-2 on the season.

the second time this season as the 8th grader took match one 6-3, lost match two 2-6 but
then rallied to take the tiebreak 10-7 in a nailbiter. Anna Dooner was defeated in the
fourth position in the 'tie breaker. Dooner lost the first match 2-6 but turned it around
and won the second match 6-4. Maclaya?rMs Morgan Wilkins took the tiebreaker 10-2.
Ivie Thomas rallied the troops with a dominating win in the fifth spot. Thomas won
handily 6-0,6-2.Entering doubles play, Munroe needed to win both matches but instead
split with Maclay. M. Summerford and Watson lost 8-0 while B. Summerford and
Dooner won a close 8-6 set. Munroe dropped to an even 2-2 on the season.

2006 audit points out problems with city finances


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

The City of Quincy finally
got the 2006 audit report
Monday. The official acceptance
came Tuesday night during the
regular meeting. Monday
evening, however, a workshop
was held by auditor Ron
Tompkins who didn't very much
good news.
The major problems, as pre-
dicted, were in the finance
department. "I can't impress


upon you the importance of hir-
ing a finance director, that it
why it is all capitalized,"
Tompkins said.
Some of the problems that
the audit addressed were:
Lack of review of cash rec-
onciliations
Timely bank deposits not
made
Lack of proper support for
invoice payments
More controls over payroll
processing
Lack of physical inventory


of policies and procedures
Compliance with debt
covenant
Lack of monthly bank rec-
onciliation
Report for internet service
customers
Financial accounting
reporting and analysis (includ-
ing computer sales and pur-
chase)
Establish an audit commit-
tee
The audit also stated that the
city had problems complying


with the grants, especially
matching grants and complying
with the terms of agreement.
"I'm still seeing stuff that has
been going on for six years.
Some of this we already knew
from the forensic audit," said
Mayor Keith Dowdell.
"For a city your size you
have some unique operations.
You have debt, you're in the
(utility) business," Thompkins
said. Commissioner Derrick
Elias reminded Thompkins said
that City of Quincy has aways


been in the utilities business and
that they didn't have. the same
types of problems in the past.
Bill Bogan, city manager,
said that as he read the audit
report, there are "a lot of things"
that have already been
addressed and corrected. He said
the 2007 audit will reflect those
improvements.
But Commissioner Andy Gay
was adamant about cutting
costs.
"The size of our government
is too big. We're too big for our


britches. We have to figure out
what services we're going to
provide. We've got to get to the
point where we cut our liabili-
ties. I look at this as your report
card. There are some improve-
ments," Gay told Bogan.

Editor's Note: Attempts to get
a copy of the full audit report
were unsuccessful. Thompkins
promised to furnish a copy of the
full report by the end of the
week. The audit report is a pub-
lic document.

"I have been terrorized by
kids leaving Patches Skating
Rink: I'm tired of living in
fear. I don't want to hurt a
child but I don't want a child
to hurt me," she said. The
police have been called to
Kennedy's home many times
but by he time they arrive the
juvenile culprits have run
away.
Last Saturday night, while
she and her husband were
asleetk someone threw a rock
through her front door shatter-
ing the glass and disturbing
the family's tranquility. In
recent months her car and
been vandalized over and
over. She said that every
Saturday and Sunday morning
she has to pick up garbage
because the juveniles have
overturned her garbage can.
Sometimes, she said, they turn
it over nosily by crashing it to
the street and at other times
they turn it over without mak-
ing a sound.
Mayor Keith Dowdell said


UTILITY from

he got a telephone call at 1
a.m. from Kennedy saying that
someone had kicked in her
(screen) door. The door could
not be repaired and had to be
replaced.
"I believe she has been tar-
geted for some reason. They
have decided to make her life
miserable," said Bill Bogan,
city manager.
Kennedy said that she has
called the Police Department
to report most of the incidents
but not all.
For instance, she didn't call
when kids stood in front of her
home screaming and disturb-
ing her peace. She asked that
commissioner consider a cur-
few because many of the chil-
dren she sees and small and
young. She said she doesn't
want any child 'to be hurt or
snatched off the street.
"This is one or two individ-
uals. Some time ago there was
a confrontation (between the
teens and the Kennedys) and
we feel this is some, sort of


retaliation. We have a plan in
place and we will catch them,"'
said Police Chief Gerald
McSwain.
That confrontation he
referred to happened a few
months ago when, according
to Kennedy, the juveniles
decided to stand in front of her
home one night. She said she
came outside and asked them
to move on. One of them came
toward her posturing as if he
had a gun.
That's when Kennedy's hus-
band came out of the house
with a shot gun and, told them
not to come on their property.
"This isn't over. I'll be back
for you," Kennedy said she
was told by one of the.youth.
The problems, she said, only
happened on nights that the
rink is open. The trouble, she
said, started when the rink re-
opened last August.
Charlie Harris, owner of
Patches Skating Rink, said
that most of the kids coming to
skate are picked up by their


parents. He said he has two
officers on duty during operat-
ing hours and they remain
until everyone has left the
property.
There are a few who walk
to McDonald's or Burger King
after the rink closes.
"The kids don't give me any
problems,'I don't think it's fair
to blame the rink for what a
kid does," Harris said. The
rink is open on Fridays from 8
p.m. to 10:30 p.m. and caters
to pre-teens. On Saturday
.nights, the rink is open from 8
p.m. to 11 p.m. and caters to
teens between 13 and 19 years
old.
McSwiain said he has
advised Kennedy to stay
inside her home and call
police, not to try to handle
matters herself.
Mayor Dowdell said he was
happy that the discussion had
taken place during a televised
commission meeting.
"Maybe this will bring an
end to this madness," he said.

payments paid the company.
At the time..Elias asked if the
city had money to pay the bills
and Bogan. Bogan said the city
could pay the money by passing
it along to the customer. Bogan
said part of the fuel adjustment
was being used to pay off the
debt to Progress Energy. He said
he was unsure how much of the
fuel adjustment cost was
dedicated to paying off the debt.
When pressed to make a guess,


Bogan told Elias that about one-
ninth of the; fuel adjustment went
to the debt. '" ,
"To the average person
watching, how much is that?"
Elias asked.
"I can't say off the top of my
head but maybe about 38 or $39
dollars," Bogan answered.
Mayor,Keith Dowdell wanted to
know how commissioners and
citizens would have been
informed if Elias had not made


the connection and asked the
question.
Bogan said it was a decision he
made, but Dowdell wanted to
know how many other decisions
he had made without consulting
the commission.
"I make them all the time when
it is less than $10,000," Bogan
said.
Mayor Dowdell told Bogan that
this decision was a $404,000
decision.

arena Wednesday in preparation
for judging and showing
Thursday.
"You have to put some soap on
him. You have to wash him down
good," came the advice from his
father, Louis Zanders, Jr. The
younger Zanders was a little
timid in applying pressure to the
animal that easily weighed more
than 1,000 pounds.
The Zanders family has always
been with livestock. From an
early age, most of the family
liked to ride horses for recreation.
"I got involved with the show
and sale when I was 14-years-old
through the New Farmers of
America. The ag (agriculture)
teacher at Carter-Parramore at the
time was Rev. Nehemiah Bowers.
That first year he gave us hogs so
we could get ready for the spring
sale," Zanders, Sr. said.
The experience was a good one
because as a teenager, with
limited job opportunities, the
money earned from the sale of
the hogs was a much anticipated
windfall each spring. Added to
that, the club also afforded
members the opportunity to travel
to the North Florida fair with
their animals as well as compete
to attend the Florida State Fair in
Tampa each year.
He said that while he and other
members of the club competed


they were also getting valuable
lessons in biology, math, and
business.
"We had to learn all of the parts
of the hog first which made it
easy to lean the parts of the
human body. We used math
because we had to calculate the
amount of feed for each animal
so we could determine how much
it cost to raise the hog and how
much we needed to sell per
pound to see exactly how much
money we made," he said.
It also teaches responsibility
because each participant must
feed and care for the animal
throughout the year. When
Zanders became an adult and had
children of his own, he got them
involved. His son and daughter,
Rhonda, were both active in the
show and sale. Both of them were
the won .the Doyle Connoe
Scholarship to help with college
expenses.
Zanders, Jr., a scholar recruiter
at Florida A & M University, was
recently called into the war effort
and is serving as a Operations
Sergeant stationed at Fort
Benning, GA. Last week, he took
leave, to help his son prepare for
his first show and sale.
I'm so proud of him. He's
active and like the outdoors. I
think it's always good anytime
you can get kids away from video


games and television, Zanders, Jr.
said.
He hopes that his son stays with
the program just as he did. He
said he learned a lot of life
lessons by participating in the
program.
"As soon as I was old enough,
my father let me go to the bank
and borrow the money I needed
to buy my own steer. It was my
responsibility to make the
agreements at the bank and to pay
it back," he said.
"My son has a love for animals
so I wasn't surprised when he
expressed an interest. He likes to
rides horses and basically he likes
to do whatever I do," he said.
Zanders, III said he had a lot to
learn about showing before the
sale. For starters he learned to
groom his steer and hogs which
can take hours. He admitted that
it is hard work and.learning the
techniques needed to present
them in the arena is more difficult
than it looks.
"Sometimes they start running
and you have to know how to
stop them," he said. Thursday
was his first time in the arena
with "Black Lightning" who was-
well behaved under Zanders, III
watchful eyes. Just to make sure,
his father and grandfather were
nearby just outside the show area
to give him encouragement.

Grant named recipient of new scholarship

.. Times Editor

Jacquelin Grant and her moth-
er, Sandra, were surprised when
she was announced the winner of
the first Stoney Edwards
Scholarship.
Jacquelin "Jackie" Grant has
been participating in the livestock.
show and sale since she was a lit-
tle girl. She has grown and blos-
somed and now the high school
senior is about turn the page on
another chapter in her life. Like.
many high school seniors, she has
been busy in the last few months
putting the finishing touches on
college applications.
Thursday night before she
showed her steer and two hogs for
the sale, she was one of four
members of the East Gadsden
High School JROTC Color Gurad
who presented the colors to offi-
cially open the 64th Annual West
Florida Livestock Show and Sale.
Minutes later she was out of her
JROTC uniform and into her
black jeans and a crisp white shirt.
But it was the awards ceremo-
ny that Jackie got the surprise of
her life. She was awarded the first
Stoney Edwards Scholarship of
$10,000.
"This $10,000 higher educa-
tion scholarship is being offered
for the first time this year for a
deserving high school senior from
the Florida/Georgia area. The
recipient must have shown a steer
or market hog during the West
Florida Livestock Show, demon-
strated leadership in 4-H or FFA
club work, be -of sound character

and made meaningful contribu-
tions through community service.
Financial need is also a key con-
sideration in the selection of the
recipient," said Ashley Weber in
making the award named for her
great grandfather.
The scholarship was made
available by Edwards' grandchil-


dren Steve Stoutamire and
Charlotte Stoutamire Pickels. It is
memory of Edwards who was a
well knwn cattleman and livestock
producer in West Florida for 75
years.
"He was among the original
charter members of the West
Florida Livestock Association
formed in 1945. He ran cattle on
free range until the 1930s, and
then ran feed lot operations to fat-
ten cattle for kill. He was president
of the Quincy Livestock Company
and vice-president of Suber-
Edwards packing Company until
its merger with Frosty Mor
Packing Company in 1957. In
later years,'he ran independent
stockyards and represented key
food chains such as Winn Dixie
and Swift & Co., as the principal
cattle buyer," Weber said.
"This will go a long way in
helping with her education. We are
so happy," said Jackie's parents
Henry and Sandra Grant.
In addition to the Edwards
scholarship, Jackie also won the
Quincy Lion's Club Scholarship
for $250.

When all was over and the dust
had settled following the pig
scramble, Zanders, III looked
around the arena at the other
children and displayed the smile
that had become over two days a
favorite with many of the adults.
He had only three words to say
about his first show and sale.
"It was good," he said.

by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

Editor's note: This is the second in
a series of articles about the East
Gadsden High School chorus. The
newspaper will follow the students
through their fundraising efforts,
their rehearsals, and the trip.

The twenty students in the East
Gadsden High School chorus who
will make the trip to New York in a
few weeks to perform at Carnegie
Hall know a thing or two about
tenacity. That's because they have
learned it from one of the best, their
choral director, Rasheen Jamison-
Richardson.
Jamison-Richardson faces
challenges head-on because,
foremost in the back of her mind,
she feels she can succeed. So, when
she learned that the audition tape
she sent to Carnegie Hall was
accepted for the Octavo Series, she
told the students they were ready
for the next step.
"They had just finished
performing in the 'Magic Music
Days' at Disney World where they
performed in the Rotunda of the
Epcot Center. While at Disney, the
students became a certified
performing group and recorded the
background music to the theme of
The Lion King," she said.
But as excited as she was about
the acceptance of the audition tape,
she questioned what she had done.
She had all of the usual "what if'
questions, but they only lasted for a
night.
"I felt excited then I started
thinking what if I can't get the
students interested? What if I can't
get the community behind this
because I knew it would take a lot
of money? What if they school
administrators don't support this?"
she said.
With more than 100 students in
the choral program and the limit
was 20, she had to figure out a way
the trim the students. The only fair
was to do it was to come up with a
criteria that would be fair to all. The
performers would be required to
sang in several foreign languages
and she needed people who were
dedicated and disciplined. She said
she has always told them that they
are only as good as their last
performance.
"They had to have at least a 3.0
grade point average or have passed


d&csCkOt

the FCAT, good conduct grades,
and no discipline problems. They
also had to pass the audition," she
said.
But selecting the talented twenty
was not easy, there were some
heartbreaks for Jamison-Richardson
because some of the students who
had the best voices were not
allowed to participate because the
commitment to rehearsals wasn't
there nor was the agreement to
maintain the 3.0 grade point
average. Still others, made a
personal decision that the extra
rehearsals would take valuable time
away from their academic studies.
The students will sing with about
150 other students from all over the
world. They will be required will
sing in Spanish, French, German,
and several African dialects. "Our
students are the only all African-
American group that will be
performing," she said.
The Orangeburg, South Carolina
native knows about commitment up
close and personal. The youngest of
seven children she wanted to sing
all of her life. At an early age, she
found that she was tone deaf and


couldn't match pitch while
performing with her family "The
Jamison Singers." When her voice
failed she resolved to become the
best music educator she could
possibly be.
Tragedy struck her at the tender
age of 13 with the death of the
woman who helped develop her
love for music, her mother. Aware
of her own limitations, she began
secretly singing in the shower. Two
years later she found she had a
voice that didn't sound bad. The
very next day she went to school
and joined the Orangeburg
Wilkerson High School chorus. The
chorus, she was elated to discover,
catered to her voice type.
She attended undergraduate South
Carolina State University where she
continued to develop skills and her
love for music and earned her first
Bachelor of Science Degree.
Throughout her life, Jamison-
Richardson said, it seems as if she
had a guardian angel on her
shoulder. People it seems have
offered the right advice at the right
time. Two friends urged her to
audition for the Florida State


uCn0 f9o E



School of Music where she was
accepted and went on to earn a two
more Bachelor Degrees and a
Masters Degree in Music.
Her talents have earned her
scholarships in pageants, including
the Miss Orangeburg (SC) contest
where she won the Beverly M.
Myers Memorial Scholarship and
talent Awards.
As a classical vocalist she has
performed on many stages and has
toured the east and west coast of the
United States with choral groups.
One of her major performance
occurred in 2000 when she traveled
to London with the South Carolina
State University Concert Choir.
Last year she returned to London
where she studied in a six weeks
music program under Dr. Clifford
Madsen.
Three years ago she was hired at
the choral director at EGHS.
"People tried to talk me out of
coming to Gadsden County to
work. It was like a calling. It was
like I was supposed to be here," she
said. Her decision as the right one
was confirmed when a local woman
told her she had a dream that God
had sent her to Gadsden County.
She and her husband, Brian,
found that they really liked
Gadsden County and have since
built a home and settled in Quincy.
But coming here as a teacher and
choral director wasn't that easy.
When she arrived on campus three
years ago, there were 39 students in
the choral department. She knew
she had to build a chorus which
meant recruiting students and
training their voices and changing
some attitudes about the program
among students and administrators.
The program now boast 102
choristers, pianist, a music
appreciation class, and general
chorus students. Last year the
chorus performed more than 20
times throughout the county with
the Communities In Schools
Program.
Her music future in the county
didn't seem so bright last years
when budget cuts almost caused
administrators to. ax the choral
program.
"No one officially told me that the
program was going to be cut, there
were a lot or rumors about cuts in
general. On the night of the School
Board meeting, the audience was
packed with parents, students, and
other teachers who supported the


program and it was saved," she
said.
If you want to see her eyes light
up just mention the chorus and she
becomes animated with excitement.
"There are so many things I want
for them. I wanted so much for
them to have this life altering
experience. They don't know it yet
but they will never be the same.
They are making history," she said.
"I really want to thank all the
Camegie Hall sponsors the faith-
based community, business
community, community and civic
organizations, the county and city
commissioners, individuals and the
school district for their continued
support in making the dreams of the
children come true," she said.
Last Saturday, a Tallahassee
catering company, Joyful Occasion,
donated everything for a banquet so
that students could show their
parents appreciation for the
sacrifice many of them have made
financially so they could participate
in the experience.
While many in the community
have contributed, Jamison-
Richardson said they are still about
$7,000 short of what is needed to
cover expenses. To help, make
checks payable to the EGHS
Chorus and mail to the EGHS
Chorus Department, 20071
Bluestar Highway. For more
information, call Jamsion-
Richardson at 539-2882 ext. 1915.

Drake, John R., III

John R.
Drake III, 70,
of Quincy,
Florida, died
peacefully on
the morning
of March 8,
2008, at home
after a strong and courageous
fight with cancer.
The service will be at 2 p.m.
EDT Thursday, March 13, at
Thomasville Road Baptist
Church. Memorials may be
made to Thomasville Road
Academy of the Arts, c/o

Church, 3131 Thomasville
Road, Tallahassee, FL 32308.
Family will receive friends 6 to
8 p.m., Wednesday in the
Culley's MeadowWood
Timberlane Road Chapel.
(850-893-4177)
He was the son of the late
John R. "Papa" Drake Jr. and
Georgianna Jones "Mommie"
Drake of Asheville, N.C. He
was born in Greer, S.C., and
reared in Asheville. While
attending high school and at
the age of 16, he enlisted in the
Army National Guard. His
desire was to serve his country
as did his father. He served for
eight years as a drill sergeant
and three days short of receiv-
ing his master sergeant official
certification, he was honorably
medically discharged. In 1961
he and his wife, Doris Joan
Woody Drake, also of
Asheville, moved to
Jacksonville, Fla. In the early
'70s he moved to the
Panhandle of Florida and in the
mid '80s he and his wife pur-
chased a small tract of land that
would be known as the Farm.
A dedicated farmer, he worked
many hours cultivating his lit-
tle piece of "Heaven on Earth."
He grew an abundance of trees,
plants, shrubs, flowers and, in
the past few years, would plant
as many as 47 different vari-
eties of tomatoes. He made the
entrance of his "Heaven on
Earth" a welcoming place, with
a flowing stream leading into
two small ponds and a variety
of lilies hand selected and
planted by the side. He anx-
iously and impatiently awaited
the arrival of any and all grand-
children who entered the front
gate.
He enjoyed the variety of cel-
ebrations and knew that any
holiday would bring a host of
family and friends to the Farm.
Celebrations were festive and
included an assortment of
home-cooked meals. He would
secretly, and sometimes open-
ly, praise our mother's talents
in the kitchen. He boasted on
what a wonderful cook she was
and always gave her credit for
the best cornbread that he had
ever eaten. His love for his
family was as rich as the soil
on his land. He loved all of his
family and thought of them
kindly, no matter how many
miles away they may have
been.


He had a true passion and love
for Arabian horses and raised
many on his farm throughout
the years.
A truly gifted and a compas-
sionate musician he performed
in church choirs, The Mark
Castle Combo, The End Result
Band and a variety of one-man-
bands, as well as many original
compositions. His last per-
formance in the fall of 2007,
for the Magnolia House,
Quincy, Fla., was an awesome
performance and those who
attended were astounded by his
incredible talents. He consid-
ered the great Ray Charles and
Oscar Peterson as his music
mentors.
He was a very giving person,
especially if it involved chil-
dren. He was a prominent busi-
ness man in Tallahassee and
Quincy and the owner and
operator of Drake's Carpets for
over 34 years. His business
mentors were the late Jewel E.
McGrew "Mac", Tallahassee,
Fla., and John A. Blitch,
Quincy, Fla.
He is survived by his wife,
Doris Joan Woody Drake of 47
years; five children whom he
boasted of regarding their
many different talents and
attributes, sons Gerry Dean
Drake, Asheville, John R.
"Rob" Drake IV (and wife
Holly), Mark Douglas Drake
(and wife Kathy) and Doyle
Mitchell Drake, all from
Tallahassee, and his one
daughter, Marlisa Kimberly
Faris (and husband Kenny); a
loving sister, Frances Kaye
Buckner (and husband Robert);
his uncle, the Rev. Albert
Jones, all from Asheville; and a
sister-in-law, Betty W.
Hampton (and husband
Murphy) of Winston-Salem,
N.C.
He was known as "Daddy" by
his children, but he proudly
answered to the call of
"Granddaddy, "Caulky" and
"Great-Granddaddy" by his
loving grandchildren, Cassie
N. Faris, Nikki B. Drake, John
R. "Johnny V" Drake V, Kyle
Mullins, Kristin Mullins,
Joseph. R1 Drake, Drake E.
"Elliot" Faris and -Sarah Ann
Katherine Drake; great-grand-
daughter Kennedi Marie Jilg
and the upcoming arrival of
Matthew Albert Drake due in
June 2008; and a host of
cousins, nieces and nephews.
He will be missed by his lov-
ing family and friends and will
be admired as a loving husband
and father, a giving man, a gift-
ed musician and a respected
individual. A true admirer of
Western movies and classic
cartoons and hero to many, his
motto in business as it was in
life, "If you are going to do it,
it is worth doing right the first
time." He'will forever be in our
hearts, our minds, greatly
missed and always our guiding
force.
He was preceded in death by
one son, Stuart Cole Drake,
and two grandchildren, Case
Austin Drake and Dustin Cole
Drake.

COMI on Mission

The Community Outreach
Mission Inc, a ministry for Jesus
Christ, traveled to Thomasville,
GA, on Saturday, 3/1/08 to pro,
vide ministry and to donate cloth-
ing, towels and other items of
need. The group was well
received and those attending wel-
comed the group for future servic-
es. For music, a CD by the
Canton singers was played. We
had prayer and then the Word of
God was delivered. The Sermon
text for the day was John 8:1-11,
subject: "Forgiven". Focus: 1)
Jesus condemns sin, not people. 2)
Jesus forgives our sins and com-
mands us to sin no more. 3) Christ
does not condemn us; therefore,
we should not judge or condem
each other. After the sermon,
there were prayers of repentance
and recommitment to Christ.
COMI appreciates donations pro-
vided by Pastor Boyles and the
COMI members. COMI mem-
bers present on Saturday were: Dr.
Marjorie Hall, Mother Geraldine
Jones and Sister Ruby Daniels.

And he had a son, whose name was Saul, a choice young man, and a goodly: and there
was not among the children of Israel a goodlier person than he: from his shoulders and
upward he was higher than any of the people. I Samuel 9:2 (KJV)

Samuel was the last judge over
Israel and he was old in age. The
children of Israel told him that they
Wanted a king instead of a new
judge. Samuel prayed to God and
SGod told him they were rejecting
God as their king. Nevertheless,
Samuel went and did as the
/ children of Israel wanted. Samuel
S/ found a young man named Saul and
anointed him to be the first king
over Israel.

much of the history of Gadsden

come to this meeting and hear him

recently graduated from the U.S.
Coast Guard Recruit Training

During the eight-week training
program, Chester completed a
vigorous training curriculum
consisting of academics and
practical instruction on water safety
and survival, military customs and
courtesies, seamanship skills, first
aid, fire fighting and
marksmanship. A major emphasis is
also placed on physical fitness,
health and wellness.

the basics of the work-life balance,
as well as total quality
management.
