The owner of Ace Salvage in Midway, 44-
year-old John Passett, was arrested last week
and charged with dealing in stolen property
after authorities found a half ton of copper
wire which was stolen from Talquin Electric's
Tallahassee location at the business, according
to Lt. Jim Corder of the Gadsden County
Sheriffs Office.
"We got complaints from law enforcement
all around in Leon, Gulf, and Decatur County
in Georgia about getting these people to

Board OKs clearing of Wood Run Road


County decides to adhere to road maintenance policy


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
Thirteen 'years ago the Board of
County Commissioners adopted a
policy to continue maintaining roads
that had been maintained since 1991.
Tuesday night during the regular
meeting, one such road came back to
haunt the current commission.
Determined to do the right thing, the
commissioners agreed to maintain the
road that had been dormant or over 30
years.
The public works department
routinely gets requests to provide
maintenance on roadways which have


not been been historically maintained
by the county. Most of the requests,
said County Manager Marlon Brown,
are related to private roads but some
are for dedicated right of ways which
were deeded to the county through the
acceptance of a subdivision or by other
means.
Most of the deeded roads have not
been constructed, improved, or
maintained for many years. Most of
the roads that have been maintained or
could be were accepted by the county
in 1995.
Brown said that when a citizen sees
on a plat that a road right of way is
owned by the county, it is


understandable that they would want
the county to maintain it, However,
many miles of deeded roads in the
county were never built and forgotten
about.
"A majority of them involved
wetlands, steep slopes, or drainage
issues which made construction
difficult. The Board decided in 1995
which roads were to be maintained and
no new dirt roads have been added
since that time. The Board's action at
the time did not state that the county
could not accept maintenance of these
deeded right of ways if requested or
directed by the Board. The county's
practice since 1995 has been to not

maintain these deeded right of ways if
not. constructed or previously
maintained.
The road in question Tuesday was
Wood Run in the Colonial Estates
Subdivision. It was dedicated in 1973
and was constructed to meet county
standards, said Betty Kellum. Public
Works, however, never maintained the
right of way which has grown up in
vegetation. Recently a landowner
contacted the county requesting that
the right-of-way at least be mowed to
allow access to his property.
The road was paved but not

Commissioners OK budget
amendment for funding

by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
Citizens with who depend on Big Bend Transit will
get help. The Board of County Commissioners
unanimously approved, a budget amendment for $11,
014 that will provide emergency funding to Big Bend
Transit.
"As a result of the current fiscal year reductions in
funding for the transportation disadvantaged program,
Big Bend Transit, Inc. reduced the level of service
provided to Gadsden County from approximately 150
trips per day down to 50 trips per day," said County
Manager Marlon Brown.
Several citizens appeared before the BoCC recently
explaining the hardship that the reductions have caused
them or family members. Citizens said they had

Big Bend to hold Caring Tree


By LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor
Grieving children, teens and
their families will have a chance
to learn ways to cope with the
loss of a loved one at an
upcoming event at the Gadsden
Arts Center.
The Caring Tree Program of
Big Bend Hospice will host a
special event March 29 from
11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at the
Gadsden Arts Center geared
toward helping people cope with
loss or anticipated loss.
"We do grief support to
children and teens who have had
a loved one die .- mostly in
schools, and mostly in Leon
County. We have a small staff,"
said Pam Mezzina, Caring Tree
coordinator. "We've been aware
that families in Gadsden County


have suffered a number of
losses. One reason why we
wanted to come do something in
Gadsden County is that the need
is so great."
Mezzina said hot dogs and
drinks will. be served at the
event, and that children and
teens .can make memory boxes
or memory dioramas.
Parents and guardians will
have the opportunity to use art
to explore their grief.
Gadsden Arts Center
Executive Director Tricia
Collins, who serves on the Big
Bend Hospice Advisory
Council, said after seeing
Caring Tree organizers do a
presentation, she offered the arts
center as a site for a Caring Tree
event.
"This is one of many
community partnerships we


have going on," she said. "It is
amazing how many practical
applications there are of art. It's
a perfect pairing."
After an art session and a
discussion of coping skills,
Hospice representatives plan to
have a remembrance ceremony.
The event is free.
"It will- give people time to
bond and be together and maybe
walk away with one or two new
skills to cope," Mezzina said.
"I think it'll be a special
event."
Coordinators' are asking those
who plan to attend to register by
calling Mezzina at 878-5310,
ext. 199, or Rachel Millage at
the Gadsden Arts Center at 875-

Contemplation



Now, what was I going to write

about this week?


I'm going to have to start writing
things down more. Well, more than I
already make notes to myself. I have
three calendars that I try to keep current.
I have two that stay at the office and one
that I carry just about everywhere I go,
vacations and all.
Somehow, for whatever reason, my
appointments seem to be going where
appointments go to hide when they're
trying to frustrate you. It makes me.feel
a little better that I am apparently not
alone in this.
When I apologize for missing or
getting someplace a few minute late,
people say it's okay because they forget
too.
I'm not very good at a lot of these new
communications gadgets. I have been
told that I can eliminate forgetting
appointments by just putting them in my
telephone. It seems that you can set an
alarm, much like an alarm clock, and
your telephone will remind you that you
need to be this place or that in advance.
The only problem with me is that, much
like my alarm clock; I'll forget.the alarm
too.
There are things you can do, I am told,
that can be done to affect memory, Most
memory problem, experts say, are due


mainly to lack of attention so the
information never gets processed in a
way that's meaningful enough to
remember.
That may be true but what bothers me
is the stuff I can remember. Last week,
my cousin and I were completing a
roster of members of an organization to
which I belong. I could rattle off
addresses of some of the members and
at times even telephone numbers. And
these aren't people I write to call often. I
still remember most of the addresses I've
ever had and some former addresses of
family members.
I'm great (most days) at Jeopardy
because I remember trivial stuff very
well. I can recall names, I misplace very
few things like my keys and, rarely do I
forget something I'm about to say which
are classic signs of memory loss.
But I can't remember to pay my
telephone bill or cable bill on time or
what is on my "to do" list.
I heard somewhere, I can't remember
where, that short term memory starts to
decline around the age of 25. I picked up
a pamphlet a few days ago to learn a few
helpful techniques that are supposed to
help me remember.
We'll see.


lunker down

with

Kiles
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.





Here's your sign!


The dryer was tossing practice pants
around in tight circles as we stood in line. I
didn't know if the "something is burning"
aroma was from a worn out belt, the out
dated inner workings of the ancient
machine or the pants had caught on fire.
We were high school freshmen, and,
naturally, bringing up the rear. We huddled
around the equipment room door like
cattle. I would come to learn over the next
four years that the slightly burning smell
was as natural a part of a locker room as
the jock straps or the used up strips of tape
strewn about after a long hot afternoon on
the field.
"Next." Coach Scott didn't even look up.
I stepped into the doorway. Before I could
even look around or relish my moment at
the head of the line a jersey hit me in the
chest. "Next."
I extended my "game shirt" to arms
length to get a good look. It had already
served in a campaign or two. There was a
small hole on the upper left side and a
smear of blue paint, hopefully off of a Paris
High Blue Devil helmet, on one sleeve. It
was faded out to a light gray, with two
UCLA type red stripes across each
shoulder. It happened to be a large, but it
didn't matter, with freshmen "one size fits
all". The most distinguishing feature on the
heavy cotton jersey was the big red 45
emblazed on both front and back.
Blind luck!
That's how my number was picked. Just a
jersey selected at random by an over
worked coach at the end of another long
day. It was the least favorite of all his
duties. And he had no way of knowing the
lasting effect of his routine action......
I immediately begin to bond with "45".
wearers across the nation. Johnny Podres
was sporting that number back in 1955
when he defeated the New York Yankees
in game seven of the World Series to bring
the Brooklyn Dodgers their only
championship. Emlen Tunnell wore
number 45 as a defensive back for the New
York Giants in the NFL. I began to track
his interceptions. My beloved St. Louis
Cardinals had just given that number to an
untested rookie up from the minors. His
name was Bob Gibson. I'd never heard of
him but I pledged to follow him closely. I
was going to do everything in my power to
help him along.
,Us "45'ers" have got to stick together!
I wore it so proudly that first season! I
had a good look at every game from way
down on the end of the bench. I never got
close to getting in the game. But Coach


Scott declared that us freshmen had really
helped to prepare the team each week.
What he meant was we lined up on defense
day after grueling day like we were Blue
Devils or Gleason Bulldogs or Huntingdon
High Mustangs while Bob Cassidy,
Tommy Herron and Doug Paschall
stomped right over us!
I earned my number one footprint at a
time!
I begged Coach Givens to give me "45"
for my basketball number. I almost quit the
baseball team because the highest number
they had was 18. And when the new
football coach came in and moved me to
quarterback he wanted me to take a number
in the teens, "Son, you've got to have a
quarterback number."
No, I didn't. I'd worn it for a couple of
years now and I fought to keep it! I'm not
sure I understand to this day such loyalty to
a number. But I know there was magic in it
for me! And you can't outgrow it. Number
"45" has been with me now just a year
short of half a century..
You went by your number in the locker
room. "Hey, 'four-five', that was the worst
pass I've ever seen! I was wide open! You
couldn't hit the broad side of a barn!"
"'Four-five', you want to cruise by the
dairy bar before we go home?" "Listen,
'four-five', I'm in kind of a pickle, you got
five I can borrow?"
Stan Musial had the most famous number
in our neck of the woods. Everyone knew
who "6" was. We still hold that number in
reverence. Ted Williams' number 9 or
Mickey Mantle's "7" are just as well
known. In football, even the most novice
sportsman recognized Johnny Unitas' "19"
and Red Grange's "77". You had to get a
little more into it to remember Bill George
was "61" and Bronko Nagurski sported a
big "3"on his Minnesota Gopher uniform.
I had other numbers over the years. My
college baseball number was 10. I don't
know what it was with baseball and low
numbers back in the sixties. I wore it but I
told Coach Majors the first day I could
never reach my full potential in this jersey.
"Oh, that's alright son," Shirley Majors
was the most direct man I've ever met,
"we're not expecting all that much out of
you anyway."
I named my first son "6". Cathy was a
little surprised I didn't give him "45". I
didn't want a junior. My second son was
"14". He was named for Ken Boyer, a third
baseman for the St. Louis Cardinals that I
admired. Having the right number is

Florida can dare to be great


By Bob Sharpe

Gov. Charlie Crist recently outlined his
priorities for the upcoming 2008
Legislative Session before a joint session
of the Florida House of Representatives
and the Florida Senate. The details of his
plans, however, were overshadowed by the
optimism he displayed in his State of the
. State address an optimism that we in the
community mental health system share.
"We will plan for the future while still
protecting and caring for our most
vulnerable our children, our elderly and
our disabled," the governor said in his
address. In the past six years, though, per
capital spending for children with serious
emotional disturbances by the Florida
Department of Children and Families has
declined by more than 48 percent. Florida
ranks first in the number of substantiated
reports of child abuse and neglect and
second in the number of children in
juvenile detention facilities.
These figures are startling, but there is
hope as long as valuable community
mental health programs continue to receive
the funding they need. The community
mental health system is developing new,
cost-effective and innovative approaches to
care. New children's-service crisis,
therapy arid outreach programs will
improve students' school performance,
reduce juvenile crime, and lead to better
transitions to adulthood. We are learning
how to reduce foster care placements
through better family preservation and
reunification approaches to care, reducing
the long-term need for mental health
treatment for children.
"Pessimists see problems, while optimists
see opportunities," said Gov. Crist on

March 4. "You know I am an optimist, but
no matter the perspective, we can dare to
be great." It's realistic not pessimistic -
to note that, over the past 10 years,
community mental health has received less
new systemic investment than any other
health and human service program. But
with proper mental health care funding, we
can dare to be great.
This legislative session brings a number
of new opportunities for greatness:
continued funding for the Criminal Justice,
Mental Health and Substance
Reinvestment Grant Program that
promotes jail diversion and successful
offender re-entry in the community;
adoption and funding for the new
Community Mental Health/Substance
Treatment and Crime Reduction Act
promoted by Judge Steve Leifman, Chair
of the Supreme Court Committee on
Mental Health, and the Department of
Children and Families; and Senate Bill
1566/House Bill 859, establishing new
managed care standards for the
continuation of care and the prompt
payment for services.
S"We can find answers in the hearts of the
people of Florida," said the governor.
"They are our most important resources.
The people of Florida offer us daily
.education and inspiration. They look to us
to be their voice. We, too, must inspire."
But, how inspirational is it to know that
Florida ranks second in the number of
homeless and third in the number of prison
inmates? We must inspire by caring for all
Floridians.
Rep. Ed Homan and Sen. Victor Crist are
fighting to establish parity in physical and
mental health coverages, as most other

Editor:
The Parents ofMunroe (PFM) want to thank the many
people it took to put on the annual fundraiser event. The
Spring Luau held March 8th was a great success, but it
would not have been possible if it weren't for the students,
the parents, the faculty and staff, and the friends and
supporters, all who committed their time and talents. We
also wish to thank the many local businesses that donated
goods, services and financial support to.this event. We
appreciate your commitment to and support of the Robert
F. Munroe Day School.
Sincerely,
PFM Board
Martha Thomas, President
Beth Allman, Vice President
Debbie Meeks, Secretary
Harriet Moore, Treasurer
Subrina Manley, Past President

Editor:
The City of Midway is still trying to get the "Holly
Branch" Subdivision approved by the State, in spite of
negative advice from the Army Corps of Engineers, The
DCA, the EPA, and the NW Fla Water Management
district. Midway is so engrossed in enlarging their tax base,
they have ignored the will of the people, who are 100%
against this construction. Over 75 residents have signed a
petition stating that they oppose this uncontrolled
development. Our only hope is that the Department of
Community Affairs will reject this latest proposal and put
this issue to rest, once and for all. As it was brought up in
a Midway City Council meeting, even Charlie Crist is
against this project.

Sincerely,
Bill Lett

Sheriff offers victim initiative


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

Sheriff Morris Young is
forming a committee of citi-
zens along with members of his
staff to come up with a way to
allow victims the opportunity
talk about how they feel. He
said the idea came to him after
listening to victims, especially
families and friends of victims
of homicides, talk about their
feelings.
"I wanted to let them know
that I care and that others in
this community care too," he
said.
Young wants an annual pro-
gram that will bring light to the
emotional toll victims experi-


ence as well as use the event as
an educational tool. Violent
crimes, drunk driving, domes-
tic violence, and home inva-
sions, youth crime, drugs, and
personal safety are a few of the
subjects the initiative will tack-
le.
The Gadsden County
Sheriffs Office has a Victim's
Advocate Program coordinated
by Whitney Sampson which
handles the immediate needs of
victims as well as referrals to
various programs.
This program, according to
Grants Administrator Nancy
Gee, will help the victims
relate to others who may or
may not have suffered a loss
violently.


"I look at it as a way for vic-
tims to share their stories with
others if they-want to do that in
a venue that is open to the pub-
lic. The program will cater to
the victim," she said.
Young said the mother of a
young man who was murdered
said she felt that no one cared
about .her child's demise. The
woman, he said, was genuinely
hurt and wanted to talk to
someone about her sense of
tragic loss. Young listened to
the woman and resolved to do
something for victims.
"I knew that she must not be
the only one who feels this
way. I thought it they had a
way to vent, at least some of
them could feel better," he said.

FHP to crack down on speeders


Colonel John Czernis,
Director of the Florida Highway
Patrol, recently announced the
start of a statewide traffic
enforcement operation which will
focus on speeding violations. The
campaign will run March 14 -16,
2008, to coincide with spring
break activities throughout
Florida. This operation is part of a
series of long-term enforcement
efforts that focus on top priority
traffic safety issues to help ensure
the safety and well-being of
motorists on Florida's roadways.
Historically, March and April
have been peak months for traffic
crashes in Florida. In an effort to
provide the citizens and visitors
of Florida with a safe driving


environment during this period,
the Florida Highway Patrol
(FHP) will be conducting
"Operation Safe Ride" details
statewide. "Through the use of
selective speed enforcement
details, we anticipate a safer
spring break period this year. Our
troopers want Spring Break to be
a period of wonderful memories
of Florida and its many activities
available for relaxation and
enjoyment," said Colonel
Czernis.
All available FHP personnel
will participate in Operation Safe
Ride. Unlawful speed violators
will be tracked using RADAR,
LASER, motorcycles, marked &
unmarked patrol vehicles.


Troopers piloting FHP aircraft
will also be used to spot violators
from the air and then direct troop-
ers on the ground to pull them
over and initiate appropriate
enforcement action. Enforcement
efforts will be focused on every
Interstate, Florida's turnpike, and
other major state roads in Florida
where speeding and aggressive
driving are prevalent.
The Florida Highway Patrol
would like to remind everyone to
Move Over when approaching an
authorized emergency vehicle
making use of any visual signals
is parked 6r a wrecker displaying
amber rotating or flashing lights
is performing a recovery or load-
ing on the roadside.

Florida."
The survey, conducted by the
U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service
and the U.S. Census Bureau,
involved interviews 'with U.S.
residents about their hunting,
fishing and wildlife-viewing
activities, with emphasis on par-
ticipation and expenditures of
people aged 16 and older.

This survey is conducted


every five years and shows that
despite downturns in some areas
of the economy, recreational
activities involving fish, wildlife
and nature have remained steady
nationwide, except for an
increase in wildlife viewers and
a decrease in the number of
anglers.
All these numbers point to
the econdhiic importance of out-
door recreation, as $8.1 billion
from the wallets of people who
enjoy wildlife went toward trav-
el, equipment, licenses and other
associated items. The ripple
effects of these expenditures
brought more than $11.6 billion
to the state.
Dollars from fishing, both'
freshwater and saltwater, led the
way, with anglers spending
more than $4.3 billion on fish-
related activities and merchan-
dise. Wildlife-viewing activities

brought in more than $3.1 bil-
lion, and total hunting revenue
topped out at $377 million, plus
another $34 million coming
from associated expenditures.
Florida remains the No. 1
fishing state in terms of total
anglers, angler expenditures,
angler-supported jobs, taxes
generated, nonresident anglers
and nonresident expenditures -
retaining its status as the Fishing
Capital of the World. Florida is
second, behind only California,
in terms of wildlife viewing.
"These statistics tell us that
managing and conserving
Florida's natural environment
are paramount not only to the
health of fish and wildlife, but to
the economy as well," said Ken
Haddad, executive director of
the Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission. "It
just makes good sense to con-
serve all the assets that bring
money and jobs to the people of
Florida.
"When all of these benefits
are added together, the quality
of life improves for everyone
who enjoys outdoor recreation
in Florida."

Red Cross urges preparedness for Spring Break


This spring break, thousands
of people will travel to destina-
tions near and far seeking rest,
relaxation, or in some cases,
just the opposite. Regardless of
your definition of a good time,
you can help ensure a safer trip
by taking a few steps ahead of
time to get Red Cross Ready for
disasters and other emergencies.
"Leaving for vacation with-
out taking the following actions


would be like neglecting to
pack a suitcase: extremely
inconvenient and potentially
dangerous," said Jessica Geib,
Director of Community
Involvement. "So before you
go, we recommend you take a
few actions to prepare for the
unexpected in unfamiliar sur-
roundings."
Get a kit


Pack essential disaster sup-
ply items. Pack items such as:
high protein snacks, water, a
first aid kit, flashlight, small
battery-operated radio, extra
batteries, and an emergency
contact card with names and
phone numbers.

Make a Plan

Obtain the disaster plan of


your hotel or lodging. Find out
what the disaster safety proce-
dures are for the place you will
be staying and what safety pre-
cautions they have in place.
Check to see if the building is
equipped with Automatic
External Defibrillators (AEDs),
which can help save lives in the
event of a cardiac arrest.
Identify how you would get out
of the building in case you need
to evacuate in the event of a
hurricane or fire. Also, locate
safe places inside should you
need to take cover during a dis-
aster, such as an earthquake or
severe storm.
Have emergency numbers
ready. Make a list of important
numbers such as local hospitals,
emergency responders (police,
fire), and, if traveling interna-
tionally, register with the U.S.
Department of State. Make sure
your friends and family have
these numbers as well.
Let family and friends
know your itinerary. Make sure


family members or friends
know your travel plans, where
you will be staying, and how to
reach you. In a disaster situa-
tion, you can register on the
Safe and Well website at
www.redcross.org, so family
and friends will know that you
are safe.

Be Informed
Know the area before you
travel. Learn about the area you
are visiting. Find out what dis-
asters are likely to occur in the
place you are traveling to, espe-
cially if they are disasters you
have never experienced before.
Pay attention to the local
forecast. Travel and weather
web sites can help you avoid
storm seasons, severe heat, and
other regional challenges that
could impact your safety.
Find out how you would
get information in the event of a
disaster. Research the local
radio stations or emergency
alert systems.


Follow these basic water, sun
and beach safety tips.

Always swim with a
buddy; never swim alone and
always swim in an area with a
lifeguard.
Be knowledgeable of the
water environment you are in
and its potential hazards, such
as deep and shallow areas, cur-
rents, and depth changes.
Enter the water feet first.
Do not mix alcohol with
swimming or any water activity.
Protect your skin with sun-
screen with at least a 15 SPF
and reapply often; limit the
amount of direct sunlight you
receive between 10:00 a.m. and
4:00 p.m.
Take frequent breaks and
drink plenty of water.
Taking action to get better
prepared can be as easy as
booking your airline ticket, but
instead of frequent flyer miles
you'll be rewarded with a safer
spring break.

EGHS student battles against adversity through music


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

Editor's note: This is the
third in a series of articles on
the East Gadsden High School
students who will be making the
trip to New York City to perform
in Carnegie Hall in April.

Bennie Brown has already
told her friends in the alto sec-
tion of the Jaguar Singers that if
she falls behind the group in
New York because she's looking
up at the skyscrapers, they
should just pull her along.
That's because Bennie has
never been to New York and is
looking forward to the experi-
ence. This trip will also be the
first time she has been on an air-
plane and admits that she is a lit-
tle apprehensive. For the
youngest of eight children this
experience is a milestone she
thought she would never reach
until much later in life.
"If it had not been for this
trip, I don't think I would have
gotten to New York until after
college and after I was settled in
my career," she said.
For such a young person, 19,
Bennie has had a lot of adversi-

When she was in sixth grade,
her grandmother, Eddie Mae
Williams, passed. Bennie went
into a deep depression and
wanted to drop out of school.
She said she didn't drop out of
school but she shut down. For a
year, she went through the
motions of going to school.
Teachers, she said, told her she
was going to be a drop out, that
she would never graduate from
high school and that she was not
going to amount to anything.
In the past few years, Bennie
has lose several close family
members to death, including a
sister. She said at one point in
her life she thought she didn't
want to live.
"It seemed like I was losing
everyone I loved. I thank the
Lord for keeping me even
though I felt sometimes as if I
had no reason to live. A lot of
people think that teenagers don't
feel anything or worry, but that's
not true," she said.
Her mother, Sylvia, who
works two, sometimes three
jobs, has been her biggest cheer-
leader. Others, like her aunts
and minister, and encouraged

women and others saw the hid-
den potential in Bennie and by
ninth grade she was back on
track. She pulled her grades up
to a 3.0 grade point average and
was determined to make it and
become a role model and exam-
ple to her nieces and nephews.
"Music has always been
important to me. I started
singing when I was a little girl
in youth choirs. There were
always songs that I sang to
make myself feel better. My
favorite is 'I Never Could Have
Made It' and it always makes
me feel better," she said.
When the chorus director,
Rasheen Richardson, told her
about the trip and asked her to
audition she jumped up and
down. The opportunity seemed
like a dream. Even before she
knew the prestige performing at
Carnegie Hall, the idea of going
to New York City made her
nervous.
"I was like, really? For real?
When she told me, I was very
excited," she said.
But the work has been hard.
Bennie rehearses about two
hours a day at home. They are
learning one song in Latin cur-
rently and she feels that her


Spanish has helped her.
"It's hard but I'm in Spanish,
I know, but still some of the
vowels are hard for me," she
said.
The trip costs a lot of money
and the students were required
to raise at least $500 each.
Bennie has been working after
school to earn spending money.
English teacher Janet Atwater
has hired her to help grade
papers.
"I'm putting away every cent
I make," she said.
Richardson said she and the
students appreciate all of the
contributions and support from
the community, commissioners,
and individuals have made.
"We're almost there but not
quite. We want all of our
expenses paid before we leave
for New York so we don't have
to continue fundraising when
we return.," she said.
About $5,000 is still needed.
To help, make checks payable to
EGHS Chorus and mail to
EGHS Choral Department,
27001 Bluestar Memorial
Highway, Havana, FL 32333.

Richardson at 850-539-2882,

National Healthcare
Decisions Day is an initiative to
encourage patients to express
their wishes regarding health-
care and for providers and facil-
ities to respect those wishes,
whatever they may be. NHDD is
an opportunity for healthcare
providers, professionals, chap-
lains, attorneys and others to
highlight the importance of
advance healthcare decision-
making.
Although several states have
advance directive awareness
events, only a small minority of
Americans have their wishes in
writing. NHDD addresses the
importance of advance health-
care planning. For more infor-

said developer Jackie Dobson.
"My buyers would like the big
trees taken down, mow the right
of way and stabilize it so it won't
erode on this sloped property," he


said.
"Since we know we accepted

said Commissioner Eugene Lamb
before making the motion for
Public Works to begin

thieves were caught, they actually
told where the disposed of it,"
Corder said.
He said copper theft is the fastest
growing commercial crime because
the sale value is very high. Copper
thieves invest a few hours and can
get a of money for very little effort.
Acting on information from a


confidential informant following
last week's large copper theft, Leon
County detective John Rudd came
to Ace Salvage to ask questions.
There, he noticed the insulation,
and the plastic spools on which it
was wound was burned away.
"They have to bum off the
insulation because that will identify


who actually owns the copper
wiring," Corder said. Passett
initially told authorities that he had
been away from the salvage yard
when the wiring was brought in and.
that he knew nothing about it, but
two employees at the company said
he was on the premises at the time
the wiring was weighed and sold.


"We don't want to shut down his
business, we just want him to
cooperate with law enforcement. If
he gets a large quantity in that is
obviously stolen, we're just asked
him not to buy stolen property and
to give us a call," Corder said.
Passett'was arrested and released on
$5,000 bail.

states have. Florida's mental
health care community, with the
support of Sen. Nan Rich (SB
846), Rep. Juan Zapata (HB
691) and co-sponsor Homan,
has proposed a new, no-cost,
Specialty Provider Service
Network option for disabled
Medicaid beneficiaries that will
improve consumer outcomes.
Sen. Ronda Storms (SB 2626)
and Rep. Andy Gardiner (HB
1429), along with the
Department of Children and


Families, the Florida Council
for Community Mental Health
and the Florida Association for
Alcohol and Drug Abuse, are
'proposing ways to introduce
managed care in mental health
and substance abuse programs
administered by the Department
of Children and Families,
improve accountability, increase
program flexibility and help the
department reduce its
administrative load.
Housing for those with mental


disabilities can be greatly
enhanced using an existing trust
fund.
New jail diversion and
offender re-entry programs will
reduce the rate of incarceration
of individuals with mental
illness and substance use
disorders.
We can only meet the
governor's challenge of daring
to be great with reasonable
levels of new funding, the
reinvestment of savings in new


community and preventive
programs, stretching our
resources and getting good
value, providing new flexibility
and incentives for community
agencies to enhance
programming, and designing
new financing options.
Florida can demonstrate the
optimism that Gov. Crist called
for by addressing health and
social problems in new and
model ways. Only then can we
dare to be great.

The Fletcher family minutes after Gene Fletcher's (seated) hair was cut and styled. (Standing) Shana Partida,
Michael Fletcher, Theresa Fletcher, and Mark Partida.


Man pays homage to slain stepdaughter by growing hair, donating it


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

When Gene Fletcher's
stepdaughter, Kathy Partida,
was killed by her husband
Daniel Chavez on September
18, 2005 in Medart, Fletcher
was hurt, angry, and helpless.
Domestic violence does that
to families.
"I didn't know what to do,
but I had to do something,"
Fletcher said, Friday
afternoon.
Days after Kathy's death
Fletcher decided that he
would not cut his hair until
her killer was arrested, tried
and sentenced. In late
February, a Wakulla County
jury found Chavez guilty of
first-degree murder.
Last Thursday he was
sentenced to life in prison
without the possibility of
parole. The family sat
through the week-long jury
selection and trial and cried
when the verdict was read.
But' many more tears, they
said, had been shed since that
Sunday morning when
Chavez went to Medart to
find Kathy, who was staying
with a friend to avoid his
violence.
Thirty months after Kathy
was killed and one day after
Chavez was sentenced,
Fletcher walked into JM
Studio in downtown Quincy
to have his hair cut.
"We grew it, because it was
a family affair, because we
wanted to bring attention to
the (judicial) process, When


people asked me why
I was growing my
hair, I had the
opportunity to
tell them the
story," he
said.
"It has
been
tough. It's
been hard
for us
who
knew
her," said
Kathy's
mother.

pronounced
sentencing. He told
the story of his
hair before
sentencening
was
announced.
"It was
like re-
living the
whole
thing,"
Fletcher
said.
The 23-
year-old
Kathy and
Chavez
were
married onTy
a few months
when she left
the couple's
home to seek
refuge with a friend
in the Medart
Community of


Wakulla County. On Sunday
morning, September 18,
Chavez went to the home
unannounced to try to talk
Kathy into returning home
with him. During his
testimony, Chavez said he
went to the house to ask
Kathy to come back and he
planned to kill himself if she
refused. But it was Kathy
who was stabbed twice in the
heart and died a few hours
after she was taken- by
helicopter to Tallahassee
Memorial Hospital. Chavez
had superficial stab wounds
to the abdomen.
While the pain will never
quite go away the family
gathered with Fletcher Friday
afternoon and took another
step, together, toward
healing.
On the recommendation of
family friend and hair sytlist,
Esther Craft, Fletcher found.


Left and right, Gene Fletcher allowed his hair to grow for 30 months. Above, Stylist Esther Craft
holds Fletcher's ponytail while his wife, Theresa, looks on.


'We grew it, because it
was a family affair,
because we wanted to
bring attention to the
(judicial) process, When
people asked me why I
was growing my hair, I
had the opportunity to
tell them the story.'

Gene Fletcher

another way to honor Kathy's
memory and draw attention
to domestic violence. He
walked out of the salon with
his locks in a clear plactic
bag.
"We're going to mail it off
the "Locks Of Love" and tell
them the story behind this,"
Fletcher said. Locks of
Love is a non-profit
organization that collects hair
which is made into wigs and
donated to cancer victims.
While he was nervous about
getting his hair cut, Fletcher
said the hair would help
someone else.
"I've been involved in
'Locks Of Love' for many
years now. I try to encourage
other salons to send their hair
too, This is the first that will
be sent from this salon this
year," Craft said.
Fletcher said he like his new
hairdo but said his head felt a
"little light."

verse of the Weeie:
For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given and the government shall be upon his
shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, The mighty God The
everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. Isaiah 9:6 (KJV)

Threw out the Old Testament
God would tell his people the
children of Israel that there would
be a Messiah. The prophets'
proclaimed is birth. In Isaiah God
was so displeased about the sin of
the world and the wickedness of
man he told Isaiah that he would
cut off Israel. This promise was not
only going to be for the Jews but it
was going to be for every nation.
God was going to robe his self in
flesh and become the savior to all
and one day deliver his people from
the sins of the world.

dating attitude.

HMS FCAT tag team


Portia Robinson and Michelle Harper are a team for FCAT
Science at Havana Middle School. HMS calls them the tag
team. The 8th graders are getting twice the teaching with this
double duo. This energetic team is using various methods to
achieve success on FCAT Science. Even though HMS had the
top scores in the district on the 2007 FCAT Science Test we are
expecting to do even better this year!


Bass nominated for Kohl's scholarship
Ben Bass, son of Phillip and Sabrina Bass of Chattahoochee, has been nom-
inated for the Kohl's Kids Who Care Scholarship Program. Over the last seven
years, Kohl's has awarded more than 1.4 million dollars to kids nationwide.
This is in recognition of kids who do great work within their communities.
Ben was nominated by Mrs. Suzie Johnson to recognized his many contri-
butions to Robert F Munroe Day School and Gadsden County. "Ben has been
involved in volunteer services in our community since 2004. This is with our
Gadsden County Emergency Medical Services, volunteer fire fighters, and the
American Red Cross. In addition, Ben serves as the Student Athletic Trainer at
school. He is a certified as an Emergency Medical Care First Responder and
has logged over 990 hours of service. It is one thing to volunteer to play Bingo
at the nursing home or volunteer at the hospital. It is quite' different thing to
help a dying wreck or fire victim, or be willing to deliver a baby. His willing-
ness to give of his time in the many ways he has chosen is the height of
unselfishness."

produced, safety with electricity, and the equipment that is used by Talquin linemen. Her demon-
strations gave the students a clearer understanding of the power and importance of electricity.

Making a difference at Stewart Street Elementary


SSES Students of the Month


We would like to congratulate our Students of the Month for March. These students have consistent-
ly demonstrated positive conduct and citizenship, followed classroom and school rules, shown respect
for adults and others, and performed academic assignments to the best of their ability. We urge them to
continue to serve as role models for others to follow.


The faculty and staff of SSES would like to recognize Mrs. Deborah Shaffer and Mr. David
Lang for the remarkable difference they have made with our students this year. They are both
teachers in our Exceptional Student Education program who set high expectations for their stu-
dents' academics success, as well as their behavior. These staff members have embraced the chal-
lenge of developing a structured, caring environment which provides their struggling students with
motivation and confidence in their ability to learn.
Mrs. Anne Bush is one of our paraprofessionals who has a very kind and cooperative spirit. She
is willing to pitch in wherever she is needed in order to help the students and the school. She is
very dependable and performs all of her assigned duties to the best of her ability. It is a pleasure
to have someone of great character to. work with our faculty, staff and students in such a positive
manner.
We are extremely proud of the recipients of our "Making a Difference" award for the month on
March. What better way for them to show their "Mustang Pride" than by helping the students to
achieve success.
