Tax advisor:

You may

qualify for


rebate

by LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor
Think you won't be eligible for an IRS tax
rebate?.
Think again. Gloria Sutton, IRS media
relations specialist for North and Central
Florida said even those who typically don't
make enough to be required to file a tax return
the elderly, those who receive social security
benefits, veterans and those receiving railroad
retirement benefits should take a second look
at their total 2007 income to see whether they
qualify for a rebate.
"If their income is at least $3,000 annual,
they can get the economic stimulus," she said.
"Chances are very good that they do qualify.
And they don't necessarily have to go out and
pay to file a return there is free tax assistance

City talks utility bills


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
Quincy City Commissioners debated ways
to combat high utility bills Tuesday night
but no viable options came to light during
the regular commission meeting..
City Manager Bill Bogan said he has done
what commissioners have asked him to do
but that he "gets beat up about it." He said
that one of the reasons for the high bills was
that this, past winter was the coldest on
record..
He then abruptly changed his tone and
explained that he was a God-fearing man
who has, in all of his years in government,
never lied to his bosses.
Bogan said the city still owes Progress
Energy an extra $404,000 for fuel used last
year under a budget billing process. The

Times News Editor.
At a groundbreaking in the Gretna
Industrial Park last Thursday
afternoon, it was clear that March -
and CDS Manufacturing came in like
lions.
Members of the Gretna City
Commission, the Gadsden County
Commission, the Chamber of
Commerce and CDS Manufacturing
turned out for the event, which was
also attended by state Rep. Curtis
Richardson and District 2 U.S. Rep.
Allen Boyd.
"This was such an important event I
cleared my calendar," Richardson said.
"As you well know the State of


money will have to come from the citizens
he' said.
"These high utility bills are not sitting
well with me. If you all need me to come
up with idea, I will, but you won't like them
said Mayor Keith Dowdell. He said he
expects staff to come up with ways to save
money on utility bills.
Commissioner Sherrie Taylor said she has
seen too many times utility bills for $600
per month and the customers gets $800 per
month in Social Security.
Commissioners were under the impression
that part of the reason was the $101,000 per
month the city owes Progress Energy for
the budget billing last year which, when
calculated, had the city owing the company
over $400,000. But Bogan said that
payment of that money did not begin until

Health Dept. Director steps down


From staff reports
Sylvia Byrd, director of the Gadsden
County Health Department and a
Gadsden County native, looking
forward to retirement.
Gadsden County Health Department
spokesman Max Martinez said
Wednesday Byrd recently made the
decision to retire after a long career in
healthcare.


"She took some time to weigh her
options and has decided to retire,"
Martinez said.
"She's going to enjoy retirement."
Marlon Hunter will serve as interim
director until a permanent replacement
is named..
County Commission Vice Chairman
Eugene Lamb said the news of Byrd's
departure was a surprise to-him when
asked about her leaving Tuesday


afternoon.
During Byrd's tenure, one of her
primary goals was to 'make the health
department a brighter, more user-
friendly place for patients.
She and health department staffers -
repainted the waiting areas and added
decor.
Byrd said Tuesday she would publicly
discuss her plans in the upcoming
week..


SLocal worker prefers price of hay to gas

every day. (Photo by Leslie Roberts)


Chooses horse

by LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor
As it happens, James Lane isn't a
whole lot different from other
people he grew up in Gadsden
County, works here, has family
here and is fed up with high gas
prices.
Here is where he departs from
your run-of-the-mill resident:
When the gas prices got higher and
higher, he got going on an 8-year-
old quarter horse gelding named
Pete.
"Friends call me Cowboy Lane,"
he said. "I have parked my car and
got a horse."
Lane, who's ridden horses for
years, sets out at around 5:30 a.m.


as mode of transportation to and from work


daily from his home on Attapulgus
Highway to his job at Motrim'
South in Quincy, across from
Higdon Furniture. He usually gets
to work, where he's due on the job
at 8 a.m., by around 7:45 a.m., he
says.
He bought his horse in mid-
March and has been riding it to
work a little over a week now.
So far, so good in fact, he rather
enjoys the daily trip to and from
work.
"It's great," he said. "I actually get
up earlier in the mornings. It's like
motorcycle riding rain or shine, it
doesn't matter."
The horse, a steady, well-
mannered chestnut model, has so
far proven unflappable in situations


that might spook other steeds.
"He's OK in traffic," Lane said.
"We were near the mines one
morning and a fire truck with its
lights and.sirens on came by and I
said, 'Oh, Lord,' but he kept on
walking. He doesn't seem to mind
too much."
Lane took his horse through the
McDonald's drive-through in town
once last week that drew a few
looks and travels from Attapulgus
Highway to King Street then over
to U.S. 90 West, where he makes a
right to go to work.
In the afternoons, you can see
him headed east on U.S. 90, where
he turns left at the courthouse and
heads back home on Attapulgus
Highway.


His method of transportation has
raised a few eyebrows among
family and friends.
"They all think I'm crazy," he
said.
At Motrim South, a company that
build hydraulic lawnmower parts
for tractors and lawnmowers,
manager Earvin McGriff said he
was skeptical when Lane told him
he was going to start riding a horse
to work.
"I didn't believe him," he said.
"But it's OK with me as long as he
makes it here to work."
Lane, who also goes riding with
friends some weekends, said the
transition from car to horse hasn't
been difficult.
"I just enjoy the ride," he said.

Contemplation



The price of gasoline is

fueling my anger


Warning: When you go to the gas station
make sure the pump lever is off when you
remove the nozzle. Apparently someone
thinks its funny that unsuspecting people
are spilling gas even before they start the
pump.
With gas close to $3.30 per gallon it's not
laughing matter when you lose even a drop
of fuel. Despite what they say, I think
people are charging us exactly what they
want for gas. A few weeks ago I drove past
a gas station and the price was around
$3.10 per gallon. I decided to fill up on the
return trip. I was only gone about two
hours but the gas had gone up 8 cents per
gallon in that short amount of time.
I wish someone could tell me, and other
inquiring minds, what happened within
that 120 minutes for the price to rise that
high. There must be a good explanation. I
have earned like most automobile owners
to save my trips and not just jump in the
car on a whim. If I have to go to the Post
Office, I also plan to go to the library or
make other stops on that side of town.
I am also not going out of town
(Tallahassee) unless it's absolutely
necessary. Without those trips I can make
a tank of gas last three to four weeks with
careful planning.


My heart goes out to those people who
drive back and forth to work in Leon
County everyday. A friend who lives in
Quincy said she is spending a little more
than $200 per month on gas. Her son, she
said, spends about $300 per month because
he lives in rural Gadsden County.
She said there are carpooling services for
state employees and she's been looking on
the internet for some relief.
We can* expect prices to continue to rise
on just about everything. I saw on a
national news program recently that truck
drivers are having a hard time keeping
their rigs on the road. Some truckers 'have,
our of necessity, simply parked their
vehicles because diesel fuel is more than
$4 per gallon.
Ten years ago, because of pressure from
mostly friends and associates, I traded my
sub-compact care in for an SUV. I could
fill that little baby up up for $7.50 and ride
for a minimum of two weeks. Last week, I
filled up my SUV for $70 and it hurt,
really hurt right in my wallet.
I wish I had my small car back. Lately, or
at least everytime I go to the pump, I have
loving thoughts of that little green car that
looked like an egg and what I could get for
$7.50 today.

The good news is, my appetite is
sufficiently curbed. I will never eat
again.
The bad news is, I fully expect my 5-

Chuck E Cheese's.

Dear Editor.

The IRS needs special help this year from the
public.
Starting in May, economic stimulus payments
of up to $600 for individuals ($1,200 for
married couples) will be issued by the IRS.
Parents also get $300 for each eligible child.
To get a payment, people must file a 2007 tax
return. That's it.
But here's where the IRS needs help. Millions
of people are eligible but may not know it. These
are certain retirees, disabled vets and low-wage
workers who normally don't file a tax return.
This year, they must file to receive a stimulus
payment.
People can help themselves, friends or family
by helping us spread the word.
People who have at least $3,000 from wages or
certain benefits from Social Security, Railroad
Retirement and Veterans Affairs may be eligible,
but they need to file a return. We'll do the rest.
Please, visit www.irs.gov for details or call IRS
toll-free at 1-800-829-1040.

did. A special thanks to the first two young men
that came fo my aid and pulled me out of the car
and to the young man that took one look into

going to bealright we're going to get you out".
To the gentleman that held my head in place
until the paramedics came and made sure that I
was handled properly because of not knowing if
anything was broken on me or not. Thank you,
thank you, and thank you! To the person that
called my husband and sister to tell them about
the accident, I say thank you. To the people that
I hit from behind, I apologize and thank God
that you were not seriously injured. Also, I
would like to thank the Gadsden and Leon
County medical staff, ambulance service and
everyone who came to my aid on that day and
offered whatever help that you did.

McLean honored at last commission meeting


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
An emotional Jack McLean
accepted all of the kind words and
tokens given him by Mayor Keith
Dowdell, city commissioners, and
city employees at the end of
Tuesday night's regular commis-
sion meeting. It was McLean's last
meeting as the city's legal repre-
sentative.
"This has been home to me and
everyone here has been family to
me," he said. To the three commis-
sioners present for the meeting,
McLean gave his specific and per-

"You have been interesting.
You have kicked butt sometimes
rightfully so and sometimes not,.
but it has never been without car-
ing for the city," he told
Commissioner Derrick Elias.
When she was elected,
McLean said Commissioner
Sherrie Taylor wanted to fire him.
But he asked for the opportunity to
talk with her and, he said, she has
been a staunch McLean supporter.
"She has been a good member
of this commisison. She has
fought hard for this city," he said.

said as Mayor he had a hard time
finding an attorney one day to get

city manager, at the time, was

help.
"A lot of people don't know this
but I had a hard time getting an

me to call Jack McLean and he
said he would help," he recalled.
Dowdell presented McLean

CHAMBER OF COMMERCE


CDS Manufacturing, Inc. chooses Gretna for plant site


QUINCY, FL (March 20,
2008)- The Gadsden County
Chamber of Commerce is
pleased to announce CDS
Manufacturing, Inc. chose
Gretna as the site of its new pre-
cast/prestressed concrete facili-
ty. "The City of Gretna and
Mayor Nadine Smith have been
terrific to work with in bringing
CDS to Gretna," said David
Gardner, the executive director
of the Chamber. "This manufac-
turer is expecting to employ
over 200 people within four
years and Gretna has played a
huge role in making this hap-
pen." CDS has an internal goal
to provide work for 50 employ-
ees by the end of their first year
of production and employ an
additional 100 employees within
two years.
Established in 1999, CDS is a
producer of precast and pre-
stressed concrete products.
These construction materials are
prepared and cured in a con-
trolled environment with high-
tech vapor curing systems. The
Finished products can be deliv-
ered to the construction site
within a 72 to 96 hour time peri-
od by CDS's own fleet of trac-
tors and trailers; the drivers are
exclusive employees of the
company. Consequently, CDS is
able to provide timely, depend-


able and professional service to
their customers. Several of the
company's contracts, which will
take place in Gretna, are to pro-
vide prestressed concrete pilings
and beams for the Florida
Department of Transportation.
'The expansion of CDS will
enable the company to be the
first manufacturer of its kind to
provide affordable, low-income,
precast concrete housing to the
North Florida area. This method
of construction provides hurri-
cane resistant, fire resistant and
energy efficient housing. CDS
will also introduce a new prod-
uct line of aerobic, nitrogen
reducing concrete septic tanks
as well as construct a pre-cast
MSE wall operation and pre-
cast pipe plant.
"We chose to continue our
expansion within Gadsden
County because CDS already
employs many local residents,"
explained Clayton Sembler, the
president of CDS. "Purchasing
in the Gretna Industrial Park
seemed a natural choice for our
company because of our need
for an immediate site for the
relocation and expansion. The
park's proximity to I-10 is an
added bonus." The Quincy
Casting Yard is housed in a
30,000-square-foot facility on 9
acres. The Midway Casting Yard


is located on 38 acres and is con-
veniently onsite with Superior
Redi-Mix a FDOT approved
concrete batch plant. A new
facility was needed to allow for
the increased production of con-
crete projects across Florida and
the Southeast. Sembler's priori-
ty was to remain in Gadsden
County to retain his employees
who said are "the true success
behind CDS."
Currently, CDS generates $5
million in payroll for their pres-
ent staff; the annual average
wage is $35,000. "WORK-
FORCE plus, Opportunity
Florida, Florida Great
Northwest, Tallahassee
Community College and
Enterprise Florida were
involved in making this project
a reality," Gardner said.
"This company has a won-
derful reputation, and they are
known to pay above average
wages. I think the economic
impact will be fantastic for our
community. It's a great job
opportunity for Gadsden County
residents."
"In'the construction business,
logistics are critical, and often
deadlines are jeopardized for a
multitude of reasons," said
Sembler. "We have a proven
record of helping customers
through difficult situations,"


Pictured left to right David Gardner, Executive Director of the Gadsden County Chamber of
Commerce, Clayton Sembler, President of CDS Manufacturing, Inc., Congressman Allen Boyd,
and Mayor Nadine Smith


Sembler continued. "We are
committed to the future and
reinvest wisely in capital
improvements and employee
training. We count Gadsden
County residents as a part of that


future, too."
The Chamber is a non-profit
membership-based organization
committed to supporting the
importance of a vital and pros-
perous business community


while working to build a healthy
economy and improve the quali-
ty of life for all Gadsden County
citizens. CDS has continuously
supported the Chamber in these
endeavors.

The Gadsden County
Chamber of Commerce is
pleased to announce David
Hauser, an identity theft risk
management specialist, was
selected as the February
Member of the Month. Hauser
was nominated for this award
because of his efforts to edu-
cate fellow Chamber business
members about identity theft
protection and the steps they

mation seminars at the

already occurred to many resi-
dents and business owners in
Gadsden County," said
Michelle Burdick, the

participants are surprised to
learn that identity theft isn't


David Hauser

number to their medical
records."
Hauser serves the communi-
ty by providing affordable
identity theft and legal protec-
tion to middle income
Americans. He is currently the
Regional Manager in charge of
recruitment and training with
Pre-Paid Legal Services, Inc., a

Exchange Company. Now serv-
ing as the first chairman of the
Chamber's Go Gadsden! Leads

mental in helping to establish
this new valuable member ben-
efit for Chamber members.


Since September 2007, Hauser

free identity theft workshops
for Gadsden County businesses
and residents. The workshop is
held the third Tuesday of each
month at the Chamber; the next
workshop will be April 15,
2008, at 10:00 a.m.
A graduate of the University
of Tampa in 1976, Hauser
served twenty-six years in state
law enforcement before retiring
in July 2003. Hauser has been
a resident of Tallahassee since
1995. He and Lorene, his wife
of twenty-five years, have three
daughters, Chantal, Lauren, and
Lisa. Hauser is active in min-
istry and volunteers for tutoring
and motivational speaking
engagements to young adults in
the public school system.

It's no secret that the African-
American community is losing
too many of its men to school
dropout, to drugs, to jail and to
illnesses.
With that in mind, the Florida
Cares Initiative kicked off a cam-
paign March 18 at the state
Capitol to reverse that trend.
"There is an absolute crisis
among African American men
and young "African-American
men in this state and in this
nation," said District 8 state Rep.
Curtis Richardson, one of the
honorary chairs of the campaign
for the Big Bend region.
Leaders from around the Big
Bend kicked off March 18 an
aggressive campaign to recruit
4,000 African-American mentors
in Gadsden, Jefferson, Leon and
Wakulla counties by 2010.
The initiative is the brainchild
of Susan Taylor of Essence
Magazine, who launched a call
for action among the African-


American community nation-
wide during, the July, 2006
Essence Music Festival in
Houston.

MAD DADS (Men Against
Destruction Defending Against
Drugs and Social Disorder) is
now working in partnership with
Essence to get the message out.
"MAD DADS Inc., a national
partner with Essence
Magazine/Essence Cares, proud-
ly launches The Florida Cares
Initiative in the Big Bend
Region; a statewide initiative to
recruit 100,000 new African
American mentors by the end of
2010," said Eddie Staton,
National President for MAD
DADS Inc.
The purpose of the FLORIDA
CARES INITIATIVE is to bring
together local and state mentor-
ing organizations, traditional
civil rights organizations, elected
officials, faith- based community
agencies, business partners and
community residents, who can
begin supplying the 100,000
African-American mentors need-
ed throughout the State of
Florida.
"If we African-American men
don't take the personal responsi-
-bility for guiding and mentoring
our you nen ... they are ending.

need mentors to work with these
young men so they can be con-
tributing citizens and not a drain
on public resources. I think if we
are going to rebuild the black
community in Florida, it will
come from partnerships like
this."
Other Big Bend honorary
chairs of the campaign include
Gadsden County Commission
Chairman Ed Dixon, Tallahassee
Mayor John Marks and Gadsden
County Schools Superintendent
Reginald James.
"We have seen the powerful
effects of mentoring in our dis-
trict over the past three years,"
James said. "It will be of great
benefit to our students to have
additional people who are truly
interested in their success to
encourage them. The Governor's
support and the initiative across
the nation is evidence of the
Importance of this worthy cause."
Dixon said there are already
several organizations in place in
Gadsden County that provide
mentoring opportunities, and that
r he hopes this new initiative will
:. jnake, the effort a ndre cohesive
one.
"It allows us to focus in," he
said. "It allows all of us to get on
the same page. There are a lot of
good young men out there who
are ready to step up. People's
jobs have nothing to do with their
ability to be good mentors."

Sports


Ne'w,


I managed to pick only nine
of the Sweet Sixleen teams that


advanced
Basketball


to the NCAA
Championship sec-


ond round.
Not too good if your a pool
player.
As for this week I feel the
survivors will be North
Carolina. Kansas. Texas, and
UCLA.
Those picks aren't bucking
the odds too much. It would be
bucking the odds if Washington
State, Davidson, Stanford, and
Western Kentucky made it to
the event in San Antonio. That
would be something, but it ain't
gonna happen.
There have been some great
games, as there usually are in
the tournament which has


become overly analyzed.
Seems there is an expert to tell
us what's behind every foul,
every substitution, every
missed shot, and everything
else about the game.
I heard Dick Vitale scream-
ing the other night about allow-
ing players with over five fouls
to stay in the game because ref-
erees called early fouls on key
players and they have to sit.
That would be just another.
change the game as you want
too. rule. If a,player fouls, he
fouls. I guess the referees
should not call fouls on certain
players. The college game is


pretty good the way it is. Let's
not turn it into pro basketball.
While the sports world's big
item on the agenda this week is
the Sweet Sixteen, the Major
League Baseball regular season
gets underway in of all places,
Japan, where the World
Champion Boston Red Sox play
the Oakland Athletics in a pair
of games.
I feel like baseball will be
the first sport to have a team
from the Eastern Hemisphere
play in one of our Major
Leagues.
It's something that's going to
happen in a matter of time.

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

to turn his piece of land into some-
thing beautiful.
The site is around the corer
from a liquor store, and passersby
often stop at the location, which
has no house on it, to drink and
discard their bottles and other
trash.
It's frustrating, Blake said, and
dangerous for a man who has to
crawl on the ground to cut out
some of the underbrush or pick up
trash.
"Last year, God blessed me in a
tent revival and a guy came out
with a bush hog," Blake said.
"From then, it's just been in me to
keep on. Sometimes depression
sets in but I persevere. I can see the
fruits of my work."
Blake currently lives with and
cares for his 91-year-old mother.


He spends three to four hours daily
at his property, using an assort-
ment of tools to trim tree branches,
cut out underbrush and drag it into
a pile.
The lot is loaded with broken
glass from all the bottles that have
been discarded there; he's worried
he will cut himself as he kneels on
the ground to work.
But he's not sure where to turn
.for help.
"People don't stop to help peo-
ple like me," he said. "By the grace
of God, I haven't cut myself. Also,
I want to have a home that I could
call my own. I am determined to
see something on my land. I'm
determined to have something for
my kids and my grandkids."
He has two daughters in South
Florida and seven grandchildren,

WGHS opens corrections officer training


by LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor


Dr. Kimblin NeSmith's eyes
shine as he talks about the
Corrections Leadership Career
Academy in place for the first
time this year at West Gadsden
High School.
He serves as project coordi-
nator for the WGHS academy as
well as the Law Enforcement
Academy at East Gadsden High
School, both under the direction
of Debra Rackley, district direc-
tor for career, technical and
adult education.
The programs give graduat-
ing seniors the opportunity to
step into a career that normally
pays around $30,000 per year
for corrections officers.
A new component this year
at EGHS is the offering of cor-
rections training as well as pub-
lic safety training and telecom-
munications training.
East Gadsden also offers
armed and unarmed security
officer training.
"They are automatically
middle class," NeSmith said.
"I'm not sure there is a program
nationwide that competes with
this. program. I bounce out of
bed every morning."
All who successfully com-
plete the program earn scholar-
ships to Tallahassee Community
College.
They also learn leadership
skills and financial planning.
Gadsden County Public
Schools received in November
two SUCCEED Florida grants
to establish Law Enforcement
Academies at East and West
Gadsden High Schools. The
grants, each totaling $75,000,
were awarded to the district to.
continue its efforts in providing
career opportunities for students
in Gadsden County.

GRETNA from

products maker, originally
approached the City of Quincy in
October about locating in that
city's industrial park. At the time,
CDS owner Clayton Semblar
offered Quincy $1.6 million for
its 343-acre park, of which only
112 acres is developable.
Several commissioners balked
at the proposal, and with


deadlines to meet, CDS instead
chose Gretna as a site for
expansion.
"Here we are, doing a lot of
things they said we shouldn't do
and couldn't be done," Semblar
said Thursday. "But we charged
forward."
Semblar gave Chamber of
Commerce Executive Director


David Gardner much of the
credit for putting together the
deal with Gretna.
"We certainly appreciate
Clayton investing in Gadsden
County," Gardner said. "We want
them to pour a lot of concrete
and bring in a lot of jobs."
CDS also has sites in Midway
and Quincy.


Congressman Boyd praised
Semblar's initiative and its
effect on Gadsden County.
"An entrepreneur is bringing
his resources and his experiences
and his services to this area,"
Boyd said.
"He and his family are making
an investment. David Gardner
and the whole tame in. Gadsden


County are doing a great job of
trying to bring economic growth
to this area.
"When Clayton Semblar came
to Tallahassee in 1992, I was
serving in the state Legislature
with his brother, Charlie
Semblar. I met Clayton then. We
are very grateful to you, and
your family and your team for


what you are doing. This is a
great area to live in. The
resources here are the natural
resources God has given use and
are to be enjoyed by all. But we
can't stay here unless there are
jobs."
Semblar said he anticipates the
company's Gretna location will
create around 120 jobs.

Internet cafe opens in downtown area


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor


The latest .rage in
technology and literature has
landed in downtown Quincy.
Last week, Books &.Bytes, a
new and used book store and
internet cafe opened its doors.
The store, which is jammed
with books of all titles, is
located at 12 West Washington
Street, next door to TMH
Rehab.
Owner Mike Frank, a former
computer engineering
professor at the FAMU/FSU
School of Engineering, said he
hopes the store and cafe will
be a welcoming place for
people to expand their
knowledge, read, and just hang
out.
Frank said he wanted the
bookstore because he has
always loved reading and his
family is artistic. His mother
was an art teacher and his
father was a poet. In fact, he
has a novel, written by his
grandfather, in the book store.
He's also is thinking of writing
a novel, but he wants to bring
something different to the
community. Libraries are
great, he said, but at Books &


Bytes, there's more to offer.
"I'm hoping it will be a
resource for the community.
We have a lot to offer the
community. We have a self-
service breakfast bar with 42
different kinds of coffee, hot
chocolate, bagels, muffins,
pastries, and juices in our self
service refreshment area," he
said.
There are indoor and outdoor
cafe areas where customers
can relax and read magazines
and local newspapers and
other publications. Computers
can be used, for a nominal fee,
in the common area as well as
private and semi-private
cubbies..
"We have recent model PCs
from Dell, Gateway, and
Emachines, running Vista. An
Apple Mac is also available in
our kid's friendly area," Frank
said.
The Kid Zone is furnished
with comfy, colorful seating,
play tables, and children's
books. Computers in the zone
feature a variety of games for
kids to enjoy or they can enjoy
computer games or pull down
one of the books from nearby
shelves to a respite.
The hours are friendly too. It
is open from 7:30 a.m. to 7

and could change.
Whatever your taste there's a


title for you at Books & Bytes.
From history to horror or
from mystery to mathematics,
they are all available. Senior
citizens (over 60) get a 10
percent discount. Sales
associate Shelly Vann said
perferred customer discount
cards at five percent off in
store purchases are also
available.
And, if they don't have what
you want, they'll be able to
order it for you.
"Whenever the customer
wants a specific book, we can
special order and it's usually
here within 1 to 2 days. We
don't yet require a deposit or
shipping charge on these
orders," she said.
Frank is looking to the
community to help expand the
offerings at the store.
Volunteers are needed to
organize special events such as
author readings and book
signing, book fairs, game
nights, movie nights, open mic
nights (music, singing, and
poetry), public lecture and
seminar series and storybook
hour for kids. To volunteer
or to learn more call the store

Covenant Hospice

plans 2nd Annual

Evening in the Garden


Covenant Hospice is gearing up
for its 2nd Annual Evening in
the Garden fundraising event,
April 11, 2008, from 6 p.m. to 8
p.m. at the Tallahassee Garden
Center located at 507 North
Calhoun Street.
This fundraising event features
a silent auction of uniquely dec-
orated flower pots. Several lopal
nurseries donate flower pots for
local artists to decorate. The
artists use different mediums,
such as mosaic tile, acrylic
paint, sculpture clay and
decoupage.
This year, Covenant has
expanded the event to include
other garden items, such as a
bird bath, mosaic stone bench,
gourd bird house and painted
tiles. Hors d'oeuvres and a com-
plimentary bar will be available.
Tickets are $25.00 each. For
more information, please con-
tact Rache'l Layerd,


Development and Public
Relations Manager for
Covenant Hospice, at 850-509-
0861 or Andrea Paul, Evening in
the Garden Committee Chair, at
850-508-2892.
Covenant Hospice is widely
recognized as one of the most
caring and comprehensive hos-
pices in the nation, providing a
very special kind of service for
persons with life-limiting ill-
nesses and their families. As a
not-for-profit organization,
Covenant Hospice provides care
based on need, and not on the
ability to pay. In 2007 Covenant
provided indigent care to 56
patients throughout the area and
spent $39,000.
Partially due to our fundraising
efforts, the Tallahassee branch
office is able to provide this spe-
cial care to the community of
the eight counties in the Big
Bend area.

In Loving Memory ofPTL Lonnie M. Wells, Sr
A year ago, God saw fit to promote you to higherogmunds. We miss you so
much. Although we knew you had to leave, you still remain in our hearts and soul.
There are so many unanswered questions, we'll probably never fully understand. The
Bible declars. "Lean not to thy own understanding but in all thy ways acknowledge
Him and He shall direct your paths'" We're learning to stand on God's word that
He will never leave orforsake us and the righteous shall never suffrt:
We, the family of the late Lonnie M. Wells, would like to thank the surrounding
community of the State of lorida. To each and every Law Enforement Ageny,
Civic Organizations and Community based gups; although to numerous to men-
tion, you know who you anr. No matter how small or large. We thank you. What
yu've done will never be forgotten. To each and every Pastor and congregation, we
thank you fo r ur constant pryrs. Perhaps you called, came by, bought food and
drinks, sent cards or whispered a word ofprayer those things will never be forgot-
ten. What a Blessingi Our pmyer is that God will abundantly bless you and yours.
Our loss was tragic but the kindness of your words, the actions ofyour heart
and especially the oveflow ofLove that you continue to produce has helped us
through this great transitional period.
We Love You for what you have donel

DEP names new director of Division of State Lands


TALLAHASSEE Governor
Charlie Crist and the Florida
Cabinet today confirmed the
appointment of Deborah Poppell
by Florida Department of
Environmental Protection (DEP)
Secretary Michael W. Sole as
DEP's Director of the Division
of State Lands.
"Deborah is an asset to our
agency and a compelling
environmental steward," said


DEP Secretary Sole. "Her strong
experience in real estate is a
valuable resource as we continue
to preserve environmentally-
sensitive land, especially with
Florida Forever, the largest and
most successful land-buying
initiative in the nation."
As DEP's Division of State
Lands Director, Poppell oversees
the operations of the bureaus of
Appraisal, Public Land


Administration, Land
Acquisition, Invasive Plant
Management, Survey and
Mapping and the Office of
Environmental Services. Under
Florida Forever and its
predecessor, Preservation 2000,
the state has acquired more than
2.3 million acres of land for
conservation.
Poppell has served as Acting
Director of the Division of State


Lands for DEP since January
2007. She served in several
different roles with the agency
for nearly 11 years. Prior to
joining DEP, Poppell was a
realtor for more than a decade
and is involved in the
Tallahassee Chamber of
Commerce.
The Department of
Environmental Protection
protects, conserves and manages


Florida's natural resources,
implements the Governor's
climate change initiatives and
enforces the state's
environmental laws. In addition
to managing Florida's award-
winning state park system, the
Department also conserves
environmentally-sensitive land,
restores waterways and
preserves important cultural and
historical resources through the


10-year, $3 billion Florida
Forever program. Together with
the South Florida Water
Management District, DEP is
implementing the state-federal
partnership to restore America's
Everglades the largest
environmental restoration
project in the history of the
world.

Gadsden Elementary Magnet Family Health Night


FCAT may have been on the
minds of the families at the
Gadsden Elementary Magnet
School, but the Family Health
Night allowed them to learn how
to make healthy choices about
their body, mind and overall
health.
On Feb. 21 in the school
gymnasium, students and their
parents, grandparents, siblings
and other family members
braved the drenching rains to
engage in a night of family-ori-
ented activities. Participants
performed hands-on activities
that promoted alternatives to
their day-to-day health routine.
Approximately 20 to 25 local
health agencies and businesses
dissimilated brochures, promo-
tional items, as well as provided
mini health lectures.
Participants included the follow-
ing: Gadsden County Health
Department, Humana, Florida

pants exercised to Zumba music,
