violators


getting


harsher


sentences

By ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
As of Tuesday afternoon there were 267
inmates in the Gadsden County Jail. About 66
were there for violating probation, according
to Major James Morgan, jail administrator.
Last Friday, 13 boarded a Department of
Corrections bus and headed to state custody.
This Tuesday, five more were scheduled to go
but Morgan said it doesn't really do help.
When an individual is granted probation he
or she pleads guilty to the crime and promises
to stay out of trouble. If the individual does
not adhere to each conditions of the probation
they can be re-arrested. Then, the sentence that
was originally imposed can the enacted.
"The judges send them away and there are
others to replace them on the same day,"
Morgan said.

Final two '773 Gang' suspects in custody


Both charged with racketeering, conspiracy, drug offenses


By ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
The last two of seven men indicted
by a statewide grand jury last month
have been taken into custody.
Lt. Jim Corder of the Gadsden
County Sheriff's Office said the
Ladipo "Chad" Bethea, 33, was
arrested in West Palm Beach last
Thursday morning and Laterance Park,
28, early Friday afternoon just west of
the Quincy city limits. The men were
allegedly part of the "773 Gang"
which operated in the Sawdust
Community.
Both were charged with criminal


racketeering,
conspiracy to
commit
racketeering,
conspiracy to
traffic in cocaine
and conspiracy to
traffic in
cannabis. Ii
convicted the
men could spend Bethea
up to 120 years.
Corder said the GCSO worked on
arresting members of the "773 Gang"
for two years before they asked for
and received help from the Florida
Department of law Enforcement. The


gang is described
a "hybrid"
because they had
no formal
connection with
any ,nationally
recognized gangs.
In both cases
tips led to the
arrests.

Bethea, of Gretna, was also wanted
on a first-degree murder charge in
connection with the death of a
Huntsville, AL man. The man was
shot Jan. 13 after an illegal street race
in Birmingham.
"Hopefully this is the last of the 773
Gang. We want to send a message
that gangs will not be tolerated. We
will continue to work on identifying
gang as well as prevention," said
Sheriff Morris Young.
Park is in the Gadsden County Jail
on $250,000 bond while Bethea has
not yet been returned to Gadsden
County.


Medicare


provider


appeal


dismissed

County to seek other options
for long-term health care

By ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
Chairman of the Board of County Commission Ed
Dixon called Tuesday "a really sad day for all of us
and for health care in Gadsden County."
He was referring to the dismissal of the county's
appeal of the termination of the Medicare provider
agreement by Judge Robert Hinkle, Chief of the U.S.
District Court for the Northern District. County
Attorney Thornton Williams informed the commission
of the decision, which was in agreement with the
opinion of the U.S. Secretary of Health and Human
Service Michael 0. Leavitt.
"Our options for long term health care just got
shorter," Dixon said, adding "we'll only have to work
harder with the Oepartment of Health and Human
Services to retain critical access status. This Board will
continue to look for alternatives and we will continue
our efforts to enhance healthcare services."

Local chosen as Volunteer of the Year finalist

Havana resident, creator of ICAN!'Program Shirley Aaron among Big Bend's best


From staff reports
Havana resident and creator of
the I Can! Program Shirley
Aaron is a Big Bend Volunteer of
the Year finalist.
The ICAN program began in
2005 at the Havana Elementary
' School as ,part of Gadsden
County Schools Superintendent
Reginald James' community
initiative to promote family
literacy. The ICAN Too program


followed in October 2006. Both
programs are directed by Aaron,
a Havana community volunteer,
who works closely with the staffs
of Havana Elementary and
Havana Middle schools.
Dedicated volunteers from
Havana, Midway and Tallahassee
provide the services that make
this program possible.
The chief objective of the
ICAN program, which serves
students in grade Pre-K through


four, is to help parents whose
children are in danger of
retention to contribute more
effectively to their children's
academic success. The program's
driving force is the certainty that
often an at-risk child who has not
experienced academic success by
the time he/she has reached the
second grade is in grave danger
of never reaching his/her
potential.
ICAN personnel found that


parents can be the most effective
teachers of their children.
Consequently, emphasis has been
on assisting parents to learn
educational techniques that will
help them become more
successful teachers of their
children. Mentors give regular
progress reports to parents from
their child's teacher and report
relevant information to teachers

PAROLE from Page 1


Last week. Circuit Judge Tom
.Batenian sentenced one man to
five years in the Department of
Corrections. The man, jailed for
Violation of Probation, had
committed more serious crimes
while on probation.
"1 want an opportunity to try
once moree" the "eman said.
"Iim looking at your record
here and 1 see things getting
progressively worse,'" Bateman
said, before announcing the 60-
month sentence.
"That's the problem. People say
the justice system is bad but
when they get the chance to
straighten out their lives, they
abuse the opportunity," said
Gadsden County Sheriff Morris


Young.
.1udgCes like Bateman and
County 1udge Stu Parsons ,work
with the jail staff daily in an
effort to relieve the overcrowded
conditions, Morgan said.
"If we have someone we feel
we can allow out we'll call the
judge. But with the VOPs there's
not much that can be d(tone
because they have already
violated the conditions they were
allowed to go free on in the first
place," Morgan said.
The jail, which was built to
house 150 inmates, is out of bed
space. They are nearly out of
floor space now. Morgan said
they have been able to buy
mattress boxes for those inmates

from their home visits. This
continuing exchange of
information has made a
significant difference in how
teachers and parents deal with
educational issues related to
ICAN children. The ICAN
program has served
approximately 70 families. 98%
of the children served were
initially in danger of retention.
Of that number, 68 children
passed to the next grade.
The Tallahassee Democrat and
EMBARQ released last week
the names of finalists for the
prestigious Jefferson Awards for
public service.
The Jefferson Awards were
founded in 1972 by Jacqueline
Kennedy Onassis, U.S. Senator


Robert Taft, Jr. and Sam Beard.
The mission was to establish a
nationally recognized award for
outstanding community and
public service. Individuals are
nominated through a nationwide
network of Jefferson Awards
Media Sponsors. Each media
sponsor solicits nominations of
individuals who work to better
their communities through
volunteer and community
service.
One nominee from each
sponsor is selected to attend the
Jefferson Awards National
Celebration of Service in
Washington, D. C.
Dr. Aaron will be honored on
Thursday, April 17th at 11:30 at
the FSU University Center Club.

As long as we think, we can be better than we are. ,

ByAlice Dulhnt, Editor



Contemplation



Much needed road


striping coming soon


to a highway near you


During the Christmas holidays I went
down to Lake Talquin for the boat
parade. My sister and I were judges and
we really enjoyed the experience.
Just as the boat parade was ending it
began to rain so we headed back to
town.
The drive back to Quincy was, in a
word, scary. Not because I was afraid of
anything that would cause me bodily
harm but the drive was scary because
there were no stripes on the edge of the
highway.
I struggled to see the side of the road
in the driving rain on a winter-dark
night.
I reduced my speed to what was safe
for the conditions and was barely
creeping along.
My sister was helping me stay on the
road too. It a wonder more people don't
run off the roads around here because
many are without striping. It's
dangerous.
I have never been so happy to see
Interstate 10 in my life that than


Saturday night.
So imagine how happy I was Monday
night during a county workshop when
Robert Presnell, Road and Bridge
director, said the county would begin
striping roads very soon.
Not many people, I suspect, think
about those little white lines until they
find themselves in a situation where
they really need them.
Presnell said the paint will be mixed
with a finely ground glass to reflect off
headlights more readily. The life span
of the striping is about five years, so as
soon as they get all of the stripping
done, they. will be just in time to start
over again.
We've all seen the people on those
little contraptions being pulled along
behind another contraption and the
paint spills out of the bottom.
Don't be impatient and start blowing
your horn when you see them, they're
doing a great service.
And, here's my thanks to them -
early.


I don't know whether I'm disappointed,
disillusioned or mad this morning. Can you
be all three? And the thing that just galls
me to no end, I'm beginning to realize that
nobody cares anymore but me......
We've become brainwashed,
institutionalized, jaded, out lasted or
ridiculed into believing that bigger is
better, expansion is the cure for all ills and
our industrial might is the direct result of
growth, planned management and
expanding world markets. "Merge and
keep going" has become the national by-
word! We have "global" news. And
"international" weather reports. Toyota has
invaded NASCAR tracks!
What happened to "down home", "round
yonder", "ya'll sit a spell", "handshake
agreements" and "mom and pop
operations"?
Major league sports are not immune to
this world wide expansion hoax.
I'm the biggest baseball fan in the world.
I eat hot dogs and Cracker Jacks out of
loyalty. I built a locker room in my house.
assigned numbers to my children. I took a
vacation to Donora, Pennsylvania, because
Stan Musial was born there. My door bell
plays the last out of the 1964 season. When
the sun comes up in the morning 1 see
stitches on it. I've read biographies on Moe
.Berg, Bo Belinsky and Carl Mays. I
subscribe to Baseball Digest, The Sporting
News, Baseball America, The Redbird
Review, Sports Illustrated, Abe Schear's
Baseball Newsletter.....
I have withstood expansion, the
designated hitter, insane salaries, prima-
donna all stars, steroids, mascots dressed
like overweight Ninja turtles, female
reporters, middle inning relief specialist,
corked bats, spoiled owners, all-purpose
stadiums, powder blue double knit
uniforms, inner league play and t v
announcers that tell you nothing-or way
too much! I have tried to uphold the
tradition. I have put forth every effort to
remain loyal and true. Even as my friends
pointed out the greed, the avarice and the
"business" aspects of the game I was quick
to respond that it was still 90 feet from
home to first base. You've still got to
throw it and catch it. There is no time limit
And there is still nothing like a shot up the
right field alley and the ensuing race
between runner and ball!
But Major League Baseball has stepped
over the line this time. Big time! I can't
even help them. They opened the 2008


season in Japan! Japan!! Can you believe
it! I am so thankful my Father was not
alive to see it. He had some dealings with
the Japanese years back and he almost
ended up visiting there......
It's a betrayal, plan and simple. I feel like
someone has kicked sand in my face; left
me at the alter; bounced me over to the
curb like a worn out shoe lost in the middle
of the road; dropped me like a hot potato;
voted me out of the fraternity......
Don't give me all that jazz about
baseball, motherhood, apple pie and
Chevrolet. Has tradition gone the way of
the dinosaur? What happened to the
"National Pastime"? I don't think baseball
is hearing the song they so ostentatiously
play before every game.
And listen, no one here is blaming this on
the Japanese. I think it was more of a case
of baseball wanting to go there than them
begging for us. But a regular season game!
And the first one of the year! You talk
about "dropping the ball", "kicking one in
I to right field", "throwing to the wrong
base", ."poor pitch location", "bad call",
"getting picked off", "bonehead play",
"ninth inning error".......
I blame Bud Selig and ESPN. Selig, as
Baseball Commissioner, must be on a
global link crusade. Major League baseball
has expanded to Canada. They have played
regular season games in Mexico and Puerto
Rico. I assume Mr. Selig sees this as the
next logical step. 'Course, maybe we're
having to go to Japan to create enough cash
flow to help with Bud's 15 million plus
yearly salary. ESPN is a most willing
conspirator. They will advertise and
broadcast it no matter where the venue.
The game started at six in the morning
local time. Wasn't that just dandy! We sent
them the Boston Red Sox and the Oakland
Athletics. I guess there is some consolation
in the fact that the Japanese would be more
interested in this match-up than most of
America anyway.
It is still not right. Things should be done
decently and in order. The Major League
baseball season is supposed to begin in
Cincinnati at one o'clock in the afternoon.
The Red Stockings have been around as a
big league team since 1869 and baseball
had honored their longevity by allowing
them to open the season a day before the
rest of the teams. I reckon they're going to
dump motherhood and apple pie next......

Stressing out over stress


It's Tuesday, which can be a hectic day
at a weekly newspaper that prints on
Wednesday or anywhere else in the
world, for that matter.
Luckily for us all, April is Stress
Awareness Month. So in case I lose sight
of the fact that white-knuckled, jaw-
clenching conduct at the computer is, in
fact, a symptom of stress, there is a
monthlong campaign that has been in
place for 16 years to help me touch base
with that fact.
Here are few helpful tidbits about
stress from the Health Resource
Network:
* 75% of the general population
experiences at least "some stress" every
two weeks (National Health Interview
Survey).
* Half of those experience moderate or
high levels of stress during the same
two-week period.
* Millions of Americans suffer from
unhealthy levels of stress at work.
* Being out of work? Stressful
* Tranquilizers, antidepressants, and
anti-anxiety medications account for one
fourth of all prescriptions written in the
U.S. each year.
* Stress also contributes to the

medications.
The stress identification above is a
fairly routine summary of stress' effects
and outcomes.
MUCH more stressful is the
stresscure.com website.
There is a suggestion that playing golf
can relieve stress I imagine the act of
emitting frequent and colorful curse
words on the golf courses is somehow
therapeutic.
The go-play-golf suggestion comes
from a doctor who has also written a
book on the topic of how to beat the
heat, "The 14-Day Stress Cure."
The book concludes the same thing I
already had but felt guilty about: That
exercise, dietary changes and meditation
do not ameliorate stress.
However, to find out how to eliminate
tension from your life it is apparently
necessary to plunk down $24.95 for said
book.

The real


Dr. Jarvik


scandal

By John R. Graham

There was quite an uproar when
the politicians who decide what
information Americans may or
may not see attacked Pfizer for
using a certain physician in its ad
campaign for Lipitor, the popular
anti-cholesterol pill.
Remarkably, the spokesperson,
Dr. Robert Jarvik, was the
inventor of the first artificial
heart. Apparently, the fact that
the doctor earned his medical
degree but never sought a
physician's license (because he
was too busy inventing things
like artificial hearts), should
disqualify him from speaking
out. The resulting media
firestorm spurred Pfizer to pull
the ads and fire Jarvik.
This fallout has reignited calls
to restrict direct-to-consumer
advertising (DTC) for
prescription drugs.
The anti-DTC crowd claims
that drug makers use TV and
print commercials to
convince people to buy pills
they don't actually need. But the
evidence leans heavily to the
opposite conclusion.
According to a scholarly study
published in 2003, one third of
folks decided to visit their
doctors as a result of seeing DTC
advertising. One quarter of ad-
inspired consultations led to a
new diagnosis, and almost half of
these new diagnoses were for
high-priority conditions.
Nevertheless, doctors prescribed
advertised medicines cautiously.
Over half the time, newly
diagnosed patients did not get the
prescription that they wanted.
Ad-inspired visits to the doctor
had other positive health
outcomes: about one quarter of
the time, the patient was referred
to a specialist. So even if the
advertised drug wasn't
prescribed, patients benefited.
Anything that prompts better
physician-patient relationships,
especially for those with high
cholesterol, is good. According
to the American Heart
Association, two thirds of
Americans fail to take any or all
of their prescription meds, more
than half are not taking their
medicines properly, and more
than half do not follow their
doctor's lifestyle advice. And our
political
and media elites are upset that
DTC ads are motivating us to see
our doctors more often, and take
their guidance more seriously?
Incredible!
Moreover, DTC restrictions
would lead to a reduction in
scientific research and
development.
There was virtually a one-to-
one relationship between R&D
and promotional spending
between 1997 and 2005. In other
words, the two complement each
other, rising in almost complete
lockstep.
The average new medicine
takes about a billion dollars and
over a decade of research to
develop. If manufacturers are
hamstrung in telling us about
their inventions, they won't
recoup their investments. That
means that you (and your pension
fund) will be unlikely to invest in
the companies that invent these
medicines. The result? No
more new drugs.
And there's reason to believe
that Washington's motivations on
this issue aren't so pure.
Medicare and Medicaid are on
the hook for the prescription drug
bills of millions of Americans.
Lawmakers might be looking for
an easy way to cut costs.'
DTC bans are an obvious
choice -- less ads for drugs, less
demand.
Finally, advertisements are one
of the few tools manufacturers
have to cut through the clutter of
false and misleading information
about prescription drugs.
Case in point: A recent study
found that of the first three pages
of results of a Google search for
the terms .'Crestor" and
"Avandia" -- two popular
prescription pills -- over 40


percent of the hits were sites
fishing for plaintiffs for class-
action lawsuits against
pharmaceutical companies.
Others were either run by anti-
drug activists or bloggers with

Sheriff cracks down on gathering

Young says event needs permits to continue occurring


By ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

Sheriff Morris Young said
Chunky Sunday, a gathering of
hundreds of people from
through north Florida and south
Georgia in established neigh-
borhoods, is over. No longer
will people be allowed to gath-
er near Chattahoochee where
they routinely block traffic and
play loud music until the early
evening.
"I've tried to find out who is
organizing it and no one is will-
ing to take responsibility. No
one is willing to get the proper
permits and do what needs to be.
done for that type of gather-
ing," Young said.
Last Sunday about 600 peo-
ple, mostly young adults, gath-
ered in Chattahoochee's
Southside Community. Young
said he had received calls from
citizens complaining that on
previous weekends their drive-
ways were blocked and people
stopping their vehicles in the

middle of the street was pre-
venting them from freely com-
ing and going to their homes..
"These young people have
to understand that they can't
impose what they want to do on
others. It's not that we don't
want them to do anything, they
have to do it properly," he said.
Young' said he wouldn't
have a problem with the gather-
ing if they obtained the neces-
sary permits, had insurance,
port-o-lets, security and other
controls. Citizens also com-
plained to Young, that because
there were no toilet facilities
available, people were reliev-
ing themselves in plain sight.
Chattahoochee City
Councilman James Atkins is
not in favor of Chunky Sunday
in that city.
He said people have told
them they are afraid to ask
those attending Chunky Sunday
not to block their driveways or
sit in front of their homes play-
ing loud music.
"They are afraid to say any-

thing to them because they
don't want to get them angry,"
Atkins said.
But last Sunday was quiet
according to witnesses. There
were no problems and people
moved on when authorities
asked them not to block traffic.
And, some say, people in the
community make money by
charging parking fees and sell-
ing food to those who attend
Chunky Sunday.
Young agreed that there
were no problems in the three
weeks since 2008 Chunky
Sunday started. But gathering
like this one could spawn prob-
lems, he said.
The Chunky Sunday idea
started in Calhoun County last
year. Since law enforcement
stopped the event there, it
moved to Gadsden County.
"I want to get the message
out that unless it's permitted
there will be no more Chunky
Sunday in Gadsden and if they
gather anyway we will disperse
them," Young said.

another 2,500 feet of space at a
cost of approximately $209,000.
The manufactured metal alu-
minum building will be bricked in
and connected to the current
office on South Madison Street.
"This gives her the space she
needs. She has given this plan her
blessing," said Spencer Bowen,
facilities director.
Knight, who has been meeting
with county staff to come up with
a solution to her space problems.
With two weeks of early voting
available to the electorate space is
needed so that voters won't be
cramped and can cast their ballots
in relative comfort.
Additional space is also need-
ed to storage everything from vot-
ing machines to records.
Space for the Supervisor of
Elections was a priority for all of
the commissioners.
The BoCC also voted to fund
permanent homes for the Boys &
Girls Clubs in Chattahoochee and
Quincy. They allocated $600,000
per facility but will not likely use
that amount by using inmate labor
and procuring land at a lower cost.
Commission Chairman Ed Dixon
said he is working with Quincy's


Mayor Keith Dowdell to get land
donated for the Quincy club.
Funding sources for the con-
struction will possibly come from
the county's surtax. Funds to
operated two Boys & Girls sites in
Havana and Gretna was also
approved.
Also,' commissioners will
spend $1.5 million dollars on road
paving. The money will be spend
equally between the five districts.
The BoCC approved fiscal
goals and priorities for 2009 as
presented b OMB Director
Davin Suggs. Dixon said that
Suggs' goal is to make sure the
county is in the best possible
financial shape and that he has
accomplished that goal by taking
20 percent off the top of each
department's funding and placing
it in reserved or savings.
Commissioner also requested
and got $500,000 set aside to
replace the bridge in Concord.
Road and Bridge Director Robert
Presnell said the Florida
Department of Transportation
informed the county that the
bridge is in critical condition and
beyond repair.
"They've repaired it as much
as they can, it has to be replaced,"
Presnell told commissioners.
Finally, Deer Run, a county
road that had not been main-
tained, will be pave shortly so that
a developer can build a home for
property owners who bought the
lot with the information that the
road was a county owned and
maintained road.

County allows exception so that pig owner can keep pet


By ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

Honest, it was not an April
Fools Day's joke. But Tuesday
night the Board of County
Commission, during their regu-
lar meeting, was asked to allow
a pig to remain in his home.
The owner of a Vietnamese
Pot Bellied pig named Fred was


granted a special exception so
that she could keep her beloved
pig at home for the rest of his
life.
Fred's owner, Bonnie
Foshee, was required to request
the special exception use on her
.53-acre lot in Sugarmill Woods
2 subdivision after someone saw
the pig in her yard and com-
plained. Ordinarily, livestock is


not allowed in residential areas.
Fred, while a pet, is still a pig.
Foshee said Fred came to live
with her in 2003 shortly after
she moved to Gadsden County.
"Fred is a pet pig, not an eat-
ing pig. To have livestock as a
pet requires a special excep-
tion," said William McCord,
Growth Management director.
Foshee said she got Fred as a


baby almost 10 year ago when
she lived in Wakulla County.
She rescued him after someone
abandoned him in an apartment
when they mnqved. He weighed
13 pounds at the time but has
shot up to now weighs 280
pounds. Foshee said he won't
gain much more.
"He is very much my pet and
I would like to keep him to live


out his few remaining years,"
Forshee said. The life expectan-
cy of a pot-bellied pig is about
13 years.
The individual who filed the
complaint only said that the'
Foshees' had a pig and did not
allege that there were any nui-
sance impacts generated by the
pig such as noise or smell.
Not everyone in the neigh-


borhood is opposed to Fred liv-
ing in the vicinity. Eight people
signed petitions, which were
given to commissioners, saying
that Fred doesn't cause any
problems in the neighborhood
and should be allowed to stay.
Foshee was asked to find out
if any special state license is
needed to keep the animal and,
if so, acquire that license.

OFF TO SAN ANTONIO
.By the time this column hits
the tieet.s I hope to be in San
Antonio I'for m seventh straight
\eai at college basketball's Final
Four. Pile\iousl\. I attended the
e`ent in Atlanta twicee, New
Orleans. St. Louis. Indianapolis,
and now for the second time in
San Antonio..
The piast t\o )ears the Final
Four h;is been special because of
thie Gatin w ins.
This \eat it will be special
beciu,,e I'll get to spend a lot of
lime %\ ith mi\ son, Joey.
B\ the \,ivy I picked UCLA,


Kansas, and North Carolina to
make it to San Antonio. I didn't
think Memphis would get there
because of poor free throw shoot-
ing.
That hasn't been a factor for the
Tigers.
Now. I'll pick them to win the
whole thing because of their
guards.
College basketball has become
a perimeter, game and Memphis
probably has the best and deepest
perimeter in the country.

Perch fishen picked up toward the end
of the week with calmer weather. Jigs and
Minnows did good bout 7 ft. deep. Some
folks with docks in the proper place could
catch more setton on their docks than out in
the Lake sed one gent. One boat reported 2
limits of Perch on Minnows.
So far as we know, no one has hit a
Cracker bed (as of Saterday evening) how-
ever a lot of folks are out there looking for
them.
Randy Weaver, Bass fishen on Tuesday
heard a Gobbler talking in the woods so
Wednesday he went a Gobbler hunting and
had one a 19 lbs. and a big ole long beard.
To some folks in the Bass fishen world,
Turkey hunting comes on strong in its sea-
son.
You take Pam Martin-Wells is one of
them that will call a Turkey into the living
room and she did on Friday. She was like a
little girl with a new toy. As I have sed, she
is one great outdoors person. We have
heard of another grapevine being shot into
and the Gobbler walked off.
Our old friend, Roland Martin is one
who will run a mile through the swamps
just to get ahead of a drove of Turkey and
. he can talk to them on a caller.
All week long these Bass fishermen
have been tellen me they weren't biting. I


couldn't believe what they was saying. It
seems at the Boat Basin park weigh-in they
had bout been lying. There was total limits
taken, 47, total weight, 1299.04 lbs. and
97% of them were released alive in the Boat
Basin with the help of Bryson Arthur.
On the Angler (boater) side, Russ
Pearson of Columbus, GA took first place
with 5 at 19.06 lbs. of Bass. Almost a 5 lbs.
average on his catch. Course, now his
brother and father taught him all he knows

Thomas of Sumpter, SC with 5 at 19.01 lbs.
Almost 5 lbs. average. Third place went to

14 lbs. A good showing in most anyone.
lake. Mr. Buddy Madden of Milledgeville,
GA had Big Fish on the boaters side with a
big 6.14 lbs. Bass and she looked played
out.
Now the Co-angler side of the field
went like this. Ryan Lamb from Lilburn,
GA took first place with 16.10 lbs. and he
is only 18 years old. And he had Big Fish,
a big old sow at 10.4 lbs. Michael Burrell
of Marietta, GA had 15.02 lbs. in 5 fish and
Shawn Makom of Monroe, GA had 15.01

Gretna looks at loitering


By LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor
Gretna City Commissioners
Tuesday approved on linal reading
an anti-loitering ordinance aimed
at putting an end to gatherings at
stores and in streets.
"This has become a nuisance to
business owners and law-abiding
citizens," City Manager Antonio
Jefferson said.
Jefferson said the ordinance
was drafted after "numerous
requests" from business owners
and local residents, and that hopes
are it will help "preserve and
improve our community's appear-
ance."
Gretna Police Chief Brian Bess
said he and his officers are work-
ing on a public awareness cam-
paign to let residents know they
will soon face arrest if they violate
the ordinance.
The campaign includes hand-
ing out cards outlining the ordi-


nance in English and in Spanish.
The ordinance defines loitering
as "remaining idle in one place or
area and spending time idly, loaf-
ing, delaying or standing around
(hanging out) in such a manner
(that) prevents, obstructs and
delays free passage of other per-
sons."
Violation of the ordinance-is a
second-degree misdemeanor.
Bess said officers are aware
that checks for social security, dis-
ability and other forms of public
assistance are issued on the first
and third of the month, and they
are not targeting people picking up
checks at the post office.
"Everybody knows the first'
and the third are check dates," he
said. "We understand that too.
What we want is to dissuade per-
sons from going up to people and
asking for money or obstructing or
impeding passage on public or pri-
vate streets or buildings."
In other matters, Jefferson said


work on the city's new public
safety building has been delayed
after a county building inspector
found flaws in the first phase of
construction.
In response, the county hired a
licensed contractor to perform the
required remediation on the build-
ing, which included taking down
sheetrock that had been put up.
"They are still working with
'the general contractor to line up all
the subs," Jefferson said.
A completion date for the
structure has not been set.
In other news, Jefferson said
the city is working with festival
organizers to hold a Cinco de
Mayo celebration May 4 at the
Gretna Industrial Park. The event
is expected to draw 800-1,200 par-
ticipants, and is planned to run
from 10:30 a.m. to 8:30 p.m.
The day before, Gretna will
,celebrate May Day near City Hall.
The events of the day are still in
the planning stages.

MEDICARE from Pg. 1


Judge Hinkle ruled that Ashford Healthcare
Systems, the company that provided
management services when the hospital was
open, failed to properly appeal the termination
of its Medicare provider Agreement with the
Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Service
(CMS). The county's appeal was dismissed on
the grounds that the county could not intervene
to save Ashford's provider agreement because
Ashford failed to properly appeal the issue. The
center determines whether the hospital will be
reimbursed for providing services to patients.
"Although the Judge's ruling presents a
challenge tyo the county's efforts to obtain the
financial benefit of critical access status, it
should be noted that the county retains the
State Hospital license which will allow for
other options to re-open the hospital as part of
the delivery of healthcare services to the
citizens of Gadsden County, Williams said.
In late October and early November 2005
inspections, known as survey's showed that the
hospital was seriously out of compliance with
health and safety regulations. On November 4,
2005 the State of Florida suspended Ashford's
license to operate the hospital.
On November 10, 2005, CMS gave Ashford
notice that its medicare provider agreement
would be terminated as of November 27, 2005.
Ashford invoked its *administrative appeal
rights, and the matter was assigned to an
administrative law judge.
The administrative law judge granted a
summary judgment (facts of the survey not in
dispute) sustaining the survey findings and
upholding the termination of the medicare
provider agreement.
In April 2006, five months after Ashford's
provider agreement was. terminated, Ashford
entered into an agreement with Gadsden
County and Gadsden Hospital, Inc to transfer
the provider agreement to the county. The tried
to join Ashford's administrative appeal but
were not rebuffed.
The County and Gadsden Hospital, Inc. then
filed a motion saying they had the right to
continue with the pre-exixting agreement. But
the county was not a party to the initial
administrative proceedings, They did not
attempt to intervene until after the
administrative law judge had rendered
summary judgment and the time for seeking
review before the Departmental Appeals Board
had expired.
"We turned over every rock to get the critical
access designation. We need solutions and
ideas, Let's come back to the table looking for
solutions and opportunities," Dixon said.
The Board voted to meet in a closed door
session to discuss the legal options Thursday
afternoon.

Works by EGHS students brighten Arts Center


By LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor

It's no surprise to find soul-searing
artwork on the walls of the galleries with
the Gadsden Arts Center in Quincy.
Even so. some have been surprised at
the skill levels currently on exhibit in the
center's children's gallery, where Peggy
Simmons' East Gadsden High School
students have work on display.
"I think this is wonderful. I'm just
amazed at it, really," Gadsden County
Schools Superintendent Reginald James
said last week while touring the gallery.
"This is very advanced."
Tricia Collins, executive director of the
Gadsden Arts Center, agrees.
She says many who have come in to
view the art on display have been awed
by the students' work.
"You cannot tell me FCAT is a true
measurement," she said. "We had a lot of
company today people from
Tallahassee, from Atlanta and they all
came out talking about this exhibit. It's
jaw-dropping."
Some students drew silhouette self-
portraits, filling in their thoughts,
dreams and ambitions.
Others worked on collages or created
linoleum block paintings.
"That is very sophisticated," Collins
said. "You don't normally learn that until
college."
Collins pointed to research that says
students who participate in the arts for at


least three hours on three days weekly
for a year are four times more likely to
be recognized for academic
achievement, four times more likely to
participate in a math or science fair and
four times more likely to win an award
for writing an essay or a poem.
"When you see that you can use this as
a portal to other subjects and it's
painless, it is such an important part of a
child's education," she said.
The Arts Center works in several
educational capacities at schools
throughout the county and partners with
a variety of area organizations to bring
the community in.
Through a partnership with the
Gadsden County Public Library, the Arts
Center will display the works of artist
and author Baba Wague Diakite at an
April 11 reception from 6-9 p.m.
Librarian Kristine Ann Odahowski
knew of his work, and was able to
arrange to bring the African artist and
author to Gadsden County to read to
children at Chattahoochee, George
Munroe and Havana elementary schools.
He will also read at the William Bill
McGill Library in Quincy April 11 at 5
p.m. and at the Havana Public Library
April 12 at 11 a.m.
"The kids really love his books,"
Odahowski said. "And they like folk
tales. Reading comprehension with folk
tales is very high."
Friends of the Gadsden County Public
Library were key in funding Diakite's


trip here, Odahowski said.
Born in Mali, West Africa in 1961,
Diakite grew up in a rural area. He
moved to the United States in 1985 and
began making ceramic creations soon
after.
His first picture book, a retelling of one
of his grandmother's fables called "The
Hunterman and the Crocodile," was
named a Coretta Scott King honor book.
He co-wrote "I Lost My Tooth in
Africa" with his then-12-year-old
daughter, Penda Diakite.
Other books include "The Magic
Gourd," which won an Aesop Prize
award, and "The Hatseller and The
Monkeys."
Diakite's books will be available for
sale at the Havana and Quincy libraries
as well as at the Arts Center.

David testified to Saul how he
killed the lion and God was with
him. David also fought a bear and
defeated the bear also.
David would protect his sheep
all times. When his father would
call for him to bring food to his
brothers while they were at war
David would never leave his sheep.
He would always stand faithful and
continually watch over his sheeo.

FDLE and law enforcement partners launch Sex Offender Alert System


Florida Department of Law
Enforcement Commissioner
Gerald Bailey and local law
enforcement partners last week
unveiled a new and innovative
feature on Florida's Sexual
Offender/Predator Registry Web
site.
Citizens can now sign up to
receive e-mail alert
notifications when a registered
sexual offender or predator
moves into their neighborhood
or within a radius of any other
designated location. Citizens
can also opt to track address
changes reported by selected
registered offenders or
predators.
The service is offered
statewide and at no charge.
"I am proud that Floridians
have access to one of the most
comprehensive sexual offender
and predator registration
systems in the nation," said
Governor Charlie Crist.
"This new sophisticated


tracking tool will actively
notify citizens of updates of
most interest to them and their
families."
"I can't offer our citizens a
better example of the use of
today's technology by state and
local law enforcement," said
FDLE Commissioner Bailey.
"We can't knock on everyone's
front door, but we can deliver
information to everyone's
desktop."
FDLE developed the
notification service at the
direction of the Florida
Legislature as part of the state's
compliance with the federal
Adam Walsh Act. Citizens may
select an unlimited number of
addresses and/or offenders and
predators to track, and can
update their selections at any
time.
The alert system will send e-
mail notifications within 24 to
48 hours of an address change
to the state's registry.


The Florida Offender Alert
System is offered through
FDLE's Web site and the sites
of a number of local law
enforcement agencies
throughout the state.
Additional law enforcement
agencies are providing portals
and links to the Alert System
every day. Citizens are
encouraged to visit their local
law enforcement agency's Web
site first to register for alerts
and access local safety
information. Several law
enforcement agencies already
have in place similar
notification systems.
"Local law enforcement is the
front line for protecting
Florida's communities and
we're always looking for ways
to work together to bolster
public safety," said Baker
County Sheriff Joey Dobson,
President of the Florida Sheriffs
Association.
"This system will be used to


alert millions of Florida
families to the arrival of sexual
offenders and predators in their
neighborhoods, and is truly an
example of maximizing today's
technology to safeguard our
citizens."
"Once again, Florida is on the
cutting edge of technology
producing a valuable service to
our citizens. It is incumbent
upon us to make sure that the
public we serve have the tools
available to be notified and the
ability to track registered sexual
offenders or predators in their
community," said Florida
Police Chiefs Association
President Chief H.C. "Skip"
Clark, II, of the Juno Beach
Police Department.
"I applaud the efforts of our
law enforcement partners
throughout the state in their
commitment to make this
program a success.
FDLE has made multiple
enhancements to the Web site.


In 2005, in conjunction with
then Attorney General Charlie
Crist, the Department added a
neighborhood search function
that allows users to enter any
address in Florida and search
the registry for sexual offender
and predator registrants within
a one quarter to five mile
radius.
It also generates maps of
where each sex offender and
predator resides and provides
information on vehicles and/or
vessels registered to sexual
offenders and predators.
In 2007, FDLE added the
ability to search for an e-mail
address or instant message
screen name to determine if it
belongs to a registered offender
or predator.
In 2008, the registry was
awarded a Gold Award, the
highest rating, by the Web site
TopTenReviews.com.
The site commended Florida's
registry for being one of only


three states that tracks
offender's e-mail addresses and
instant message screen names.
Florida is also the only state to
have earned an A+ rating by the
advocacy group Parents of
Megan's Law.
Through the Public Safety
Information Act of 1997,
Florida became the first state to
list sexual offenders and
predators on the Internet and to
make the same information
available through a 24-hour/day
hotline.
The FDLE Sex
Offender/Predator Registry
currently houses data on more
than 47,000 registered sex
offenders arid predators and the
Web site averages more than
500,000 searches per month.
Citizens can register for the
alerts by visiting their local law
enforcement agency's Web site
or by visiting
www.flsexoffender.net or
www.fdle.state.fl.us.

HMS ice cream


Srief


"I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream!" Yes, good old fashion ice cream. Mrs.
Pease Science class did an ice cream experiment. The class wrote the recipe for making ice cream.
They got out the measuring utensils and measured the milk, sugar, and vanilla flavor. The class
used a large zip lock bag to put ice and rock salt in. The classed used a smaller zip lock bag to
mix the ingredients for the ice cream. The class used plain old fashion friction to make the ice
cream. (they shook the bags) the photo shows the class investing time and effort into this project
and showing off their skill levels. The class was demonstrating FCAT skills on measuring length,
mass and volume. They also used metric units.


M.O.M.s Homeschool event


Above, M.O.M's Homeschool Group held their first "Kick Off Day" on Saturday March 8th.
We had several families that showed up and the children enjoyed lots of activities from sack races
to red rover. The group is excited about their new adventure and look forward to lots of great
activities in the future. If you would like to know what this group has to offer, look at their web-
site at: www.homeschool-life.com/fl/momshomeschoolgroup. Below, the homeschool students of
M.O.M's Homeschool group went on their first field trip to the F.S.U Flying High Circus. The stu-
dents were able to participate in their annual children's day and watch the F.S.U students per-
form. The students had a wonderful time and look forward to next years annual children's day.


SMOKING from Page B 1


attempts to stop smoking for good.
Additionally, 70% to 90% of smokers say that
withdrawal symptoms and cravings are the only
reasons for not giving up cigarettes. NRT, coupled
with counseling, doubles the chances that a smok-
er will quit.
From setting a quit date, determining trigger
situations, and helping during a relapse, specially


trained Quitline counselors help tobacco users
develop a plan to finally rid themselves of tobac-
co and nicotine dependency. Smokers must be
enrolled in counseling to be considered for NRT
and are asked a series of medical questions during
their first call. Supplies of NRT are limited and
tobacco users are encouraged to take advantage of
this effective cessation tool.

FSU to present 'An Evening of Dance'


The Florida State
University Department will
present their annual concert,
An Evening of Dance, at 8:00
p.m. April 10 through 12 in the
Nancy Smith Fichter Dance
Theatre in Montgomery Hall,

tion with Cedar Lake's
February visit to Tallahassee

According to Deborah Jowitt
of the Village Voice, "Artistic
Director of Cedar Lake,
Benoit-Swan Pouffer favors
pieces that challenge the
dancers to be fierce, athletic,
and compulsively sensual."
Ma's, The Fan, is an elegant
solo set to the music of Gabriel
Faur6 and Avro Part. Anna
Kisselgoff of the New York
Times described the piece as
"an intensity so strong that it
seemed at a breaking point."

guest teaching artist in the
department during the spring
semester.
Faculty members Tim Glenn
and Dan Wagoner will also
contribute to the concert.
Selections from Glenn's piece


Embodiments of Silence will

timedia feast. The work will be
seen in its entirety in
September 2008 along with the
world premiere of the dance
film of the same name.
Wagoner's signature piece,
Round This World Baby Mine

In addition to classes for dance
majors, approximately 350 stu-
dents are instructed each

part in this diplomatic simulation
in order to gain knowledge on
pertinent global concerns affect-
ing today's international politics.
Students from TCC, led by head
delegate Molly Snouffer, repre-
sented the Republic of Indonesia
in twelve specialized committees
with several topics pertaining to
peace building, gender equality,
corruption and climate change.
Delegates were able to dis-
cuss and create comprehensive
resolutions in tackling the situa-
tion in Somalia, debating the
integration of Iran into interna-
tional agreements and upholding
authority of the Geneva
Protocol.


Individual awards were
earned by members Rory Clarke
and Kirk Young, who garnered
the prestigious Outstanding
Delegation award in the General
Assembly's first committee on
Disarmament and International
Security. The team was also led
by Andrew Blackburn and Nate
Johnston, who received individ-
ual awards within the
Organization of the Islamic
Conference.
Opening ceremonies for
NMUN are held annually at the
United Nations General
Assembly Hall. This year, the
conference was pleased to
announce honorary guest speak-
er Secretary General of the
United Nations Ban-Ki Moon. In
his address to delegates, he hon-
ored their commitment and
enthusiasm in being the catalysts
of change in the global arena. He
spoke of prominent issues
unfolding in sub-Saharan Africa
as well as the Middle East, and
his honest conviction that young
adults in attendance would
become the ambassadors of
tomorrow.
TCC students also. had the
honor of attending a mission
briefing with ambassadors from
the Permanent Mission to the
Republic of Indonesia. It was
during this round table forum
that MUN members were able to
ask questions of Indonesian
diplomats in regards to their


country's stance on worldwide
issues.
The NMUN Conference

cessful year for TCC's Model
