Gadsden

mourns loss

of Tenney

Deane

By ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
Jack Peacock put it
simply and best: "He
will be missed," ohe
said.
The "he" Peacock
referred to is Tenney
Ingalls Deane, 70,
who passed Saturday
night after a battle
with pancreatic
cancer. Tenney was
well known throughout the county and known
as a gregarious and friendly man who was
always willing to help others.
Deane came to Quincy from North Carolina
in 1996 and immediately plunged himself into
the community. He could have lived anywhere
in the world but chose Gadsden County
because, he said, he always considered Quincy


attending Gadsden High School.
"He fully adopted the people of this
community," said the Rev. Chris Erde, current
pastor at First Presbyterian Church, during the
Resurrection Services for Deane Monday

Couple charged after


meth lab discovered


By ALICE DU PONT y-
Times Editor
A husband and wife
were arrested last
Wednesday after a
search of their property, ,
4903 Blue Star Highway .
just outside of the I
Chattahoochee city R. araga
limits, turned up a
methamphetamine lab. Roman Karagula,
61, and his wife Dorothy, 60, were arrested
without incident and taken to the county jail
and charged with manufacturing
methamphetamine, according to Lt. Jim
Corder of the Gadsden County Sheriff's
Office.


He said that during the .'..- ,"\
search members of the
drug unit (officers from
the Gadsden County
Sheriff's office and the
Florida Department of -
Law Enforcement)
found a fully operational
methamphetamine lab
that was in the final D. Karagula
stage of "cook."
In addition to the meth lab authorities
found 13 firearms and all of the pre-cursor
chemicals needed to manufacture
methamphetamine. The Capital City Meth

Benefit held at Dover Farm


Six-time Olympic dressage rider Robert Dover came out of retirement to perform at a
fundraiser for fellow equestrian Darren Chiachia April 2 at the W.C. Dover Farm in Midway.
Chiachia was seriously injured during the cross-country phase of the Red Hills Horse Trials in
Tallahassee March 13-16 when the horse he was riding, Baron Verdi, misstepped and fell on
him. Here, Dover rides Windfall, a Trakhener stallion and one of Chiachia's favorite mounts.

City OKs


land use


amendment

But some residents
against zoning change

By ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
Quincy City Commissioners took care of a bit of
housekeeping Tuesday night, approving a large-scale
land use amendment to the city's comprehensive plan
for the area in which Wal-Mart and South Springs
Development is located.
Of course, Wal-Mart is up and running but the
amendment was never transmitted to DCA.
Wal-Mart annexed the property in 2002. South
Springs Development was annexed into the city in
2004 and approved as a Planned Unit Development, a
land use that is compatible with the county and the
land use designation of Urban Services Area.
But people who live in the area that is zoned
agriculture are crying foul. Attorney Scott Shirley told
commissioners that two property owners in the area are
opposed to the amendment transmittal.
"I have never seen such a big gap between the
between the Planning Development Review Board (in
2004) and the commission hearing the amendment (in
2008)," Shirley said.
Property owners along Cox Road are concerned that
when South Springs is completed, it will contain too
many homes for an area that is bound by three sides
with agriculture land uses.
The development is the property of North Florida
Education Development Corporation and is billed as a
development that will provide affordable housing.
Carolyn Ford said she has worked to bring affordable
housing to families in Gadsden County and the
development would do that for citizens.
"We've invested so much money in this property
because of your past approval," she told
commissioners. ,

Cinco de Mayo celebration set for Gretna


By LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor
The first weekend in May will be a
festive one in Gretna.
Organizers call the Cinco de Mayo
festival planned for May 4 one larger


and livelier than has been in the region
before.
"There are a lot of people who will
be experiencing something like they
never have before," said Hector
Quezada, manager for La Poderosa
radio station and one of the festival


organizers.
The radio station, WTCL 1580 a.m.,
is the biggest sponsor of the event,
which will take place from 11 a.m. to
8:30 p.m. at the Gretna Industrial Park.
Quezada and his partners bought the
Chattahoochee radid station three


months ago. They plan to have a
studio in Quincy.
"We found the need for a Latino
radio station in this area," Quezada
said.

while also enriching the lives of
its residents. The Quincy Music
Theatre received a wall plaque

Printing & Copy, located in
Quincy.
"The Quincy Music Theatre has
not only survived for twenty-five
years, it's been an extremely
successful part of Quincy," said
Michelle Burdick, the Chamber's
vice president of membership.
"Their shows are a huge draw for
our own residents and for visitors
from other areas, especially Leon


County and South Georgia."
Besides providing a community
theatre, the Quincy Music
Theatre supports the community
in other ways. For example,

Hunker down

with

K es


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.


Lefty couldn't take the heat!


I didn't want the dog back in 1997. It was
Jesse's idea. He wanted to surprise his
mother with a puppy for Christmas. Plus, he
found out what happened to the little
creatures at the Animal Shelter if they
couldn't find a home.
We rescued Hank from the dog pound.
Jess dropped him in a sack, tied a red
ribbon around the top and proudly presented
him to Cathy as a present. It was the best
we could do as we didn't figure Hank
would sit quietly under the tree until
Christmas morning.
I couldn't tell if Cathy liked Hank or not.
She is pretty good about not disappointing
the boys. I can guarantee you, she was
completely surprised!
Hank grew out of the gift bag the first
night. By Christmas morning, the "puppy"
weighed thirty pounds. You could see him
growing! I was reminded of that classic
movie, "The Monster That Ate Cleveland".
Jesse left right after New Year's to go
back to college. Cathy returned to her
teaching duties. I was stuck with a half
chow, half chocolate lab that eats like that
guy on the Popeye cartoons and in three
weeks outgrew his comer in the baseball
locker room.
Out of self preservation I determined
Hank to be an outside dog. He readily
agreed. I don't remember when he started
running with me. I was stretching on the
porch one afternoon and he reared up on the
bench and stretched his big long legs out
beside me.
"Let's go you crazy ole dog." We took off
a little faster than normal. I was going to
show this dog something! He didn't say
nothing. But he matched me step for step.
At the five mile mark my breathing became
a little ragged. My left heel hurt. And I had
a twinge in my side. I speeded up. I wasn't
about to let Hank see me sweat! He didn't
even bother to look up as he quickened his
pace to match mine.
"You're lower to the ground. You don't
have the wind resistance that I do. You're a
lot younger. You don't have to work; you
just lay around all day, resting, waiting on
me to get home. You've got two more feet
on the ground than I do for crying out
loud!"
Hank didn't say nothing.
But he never missed a run. He was eager. I
will give him that. And even after he grew
to his full 115 pounds he never complained
about the added weight or the hot days or.
the cold ones or the rain. He never seemed
to be sick or hampered with a pulled
muscle. If I put my worn out size ten Asics
running shoe on that deck bench, Hank laid
a number twelve and a half size paw right
beside it. We stretched in unison.
Some days I picked which way we ran.
Some days, I let him. I told him about the
St. Louis Cardinals and the Chicago Bears.
I explained how Josh and Jess got their
names. I told him about floating down the
Cascade River with Tom, Joke, Bill and
Grover Cleveland Alexander. He learned all
about LaRenda Bradfield, Bobby Brewer,


Buddy Wiggleton and Graylene Lemmonds.
He never said much, but he was about the
best listener I've ever been around.
We have done this for eleven years and
ten thousand miles. He is the best running
partner I've ever had bar none! And we've
been a pretty good team. I did try to replace
him once. A couple of years ago I noticed
Hank was slowing down. I didn't want to
run him past his time. A good friend offered
me a registered lab. A real pretty dog, had
great markings, a good chest, and he was
young. I figured it was worth a try. He
stayed three days. Me and Hank took him
out for a spin. We ran five miles or so each
day. Some time during the third night, Lefty
jumped the fence and made his escape! He
had had all the running he could stand! You
can't judge every dog by his looks.....
Hank has really slowed this past year. His
heart is willing but the flesh is beginning to
weaken. We have discussed his retirement
and the possible need for a replacement.
Hank knows it. But admitting it is an
altogether different proposition.
Fate intervened. I found a dog on the side
of the road; a young, Australian shepherd
. mutt with one brown eye and one blue eye.
I took him home and showed him to Hank.'
It was a little bit of an awkward situation, I
wouldn't hurt Hank's feelings for all the tea
in China. "I figure, ole boy, we'll try him
out. See if he can last as long as Lefty."
, We named him One Eyed Jack. And after
I fed'im good, got the ticks off and cleaned
him up some, I took him out for a test run.
He PULLED me for the first mile. "Whoa
dog. Hold up. Slow down. Jack, wait a
minute!" I
When we got back to the house he was
still bouncing off the walls, chasing
squirrels, birds and bumble bees. Hank
helped me to the back steps. "I'm not sure,
big fellow, that this is going to work." Hank
just shook his head and finally spoke, "Kes,
I'm not the only one that has been slowing
down the last couple of years!"
Jack is the runningest dog I've ever seen.
He can out run a late freight. He never
stops. He never rests. He never sleeps. He is
about to kill me! It's like he's got that 1985
super charged Corvette engine and I'm
trying to keep up in my 1947 Rolls Hardly
(rolls down one hill and hardly gets up the
next).
He doesn't stretch. He doesn't warm up.
He just takes off! And he is one happy dog!
He smiles when I try to get him to "cool it a
mite". He grins when I grab him by the ears
and yell "Hang on there a minute!" And he
laughs out loud when I say, "0 K, one more
mile".
Hank and I go walking after Jack drags
me back to the house. We reminisce about
that first Christmas, how the boys have
grown, the miles we've covered-Jack will
come by in fourth gear, go "Beep, Beep"
and be out of sight in a flash!
I've got to find an "in between" dog......
Respectfully,
Kes

A grand event for a good cause


The fundraiser at Walt and Carol
Dover's Midway equestrian complex
last week had a little something for
everyone.
It was held to help established
equestrian Darren Chiachia, who was
seriously injured during this year's Red
Hills Horse Trials when his horse
stumbled and fell on him during the
cross-country competition.
After being on life support for some
time, Chiachia's condition improved
and he was flown to a rehabilitation
center in New York April 3.
The folks who turned out for April 2
fundraiser which brought in around
$200,000 to help Chiachia with his
medical expenses were a mix of the
jeans-and-cowboy-boots crowd and the
designer evening wear set.
Some were moved to tears during
Olympic equestrian Robert Dover's

freestyle dressage performance. One of
the songs played during the
performance was "He Ain't Heavy,
He's My Brother" (the Barry Manilow
version) and scores stood around a
covered arena to watch Dover and
Windfall do their dance.
Windfall, a Trakhener stallion, is a
favorite Chiachia mount. It's easy to
see why he is nothing short of
breathtaking.
"You are BEAUTIFUL," I breathed,
as Dover rode him from the barn to the
arena.
Dover, who last year produced
"American Dressage Idol," a Fox
Reality Channel show, has seen the
look before. He smiled and waved as
he rode past me.
It was a grand event for a good cause.
Here's hoping Chiachia will have a
speedy recovery.

hEditor

Editor,
I have just finished reading the DCA rulings on the City
of Midway Amendments 08-1. These amendments were
unanimously rejected, which was no surprise, but I was
surprised at some new facts I learned..
(1) The EPA survey shows 186.69 acres of uplands and
131.12 acres of wetlands in the proposed "Holly Branch
Subdivision". Hardly a location for development.
(2) The NW FL Water Management District says
"Because of the proximity to the Ocholonee River, an
onsite Sewer System (This isn't septick Tanks) is not
appropriate."
(3) The Secretary of State has no opinion, (are they
nuts?)
(4) The Department of Transportation also has no
opinion. (They must not see the 20,00 cars that daily
zoomn by their office at Dupont Rd. and Hwy 90 west.
(5) Last but not least, I wasn't surprised that 87 citizens
of Gadsden county, and residents of Dupont Road were
100% against these amendments, and stated so in a
petition presented tq the DCA.
Sincerely
Bill Lett
Editor;
Are you someone, or do you know of another individual
or a relative with the same name as yours? Well with most'
of our families here there are several family members,
Uncles, Aunts, Neices, Nephews and Cousins with the
same name but with different birth dates.
Some people have gone all the way back to the Great-
Grandparent and given that name to their child. Be
careful of the name. It may cause them some problems
later on in life. Last week. I had the most unpleasant
experience of reading over The Gadsden Cpunty Times. I
tried to explain: The young lady and I have the same
name and I didn not want the reader to think this was me
and after I spoke briefly with a staff employee Mrs.
Dupont picked up the telephone she listen and she calmy
spoke with me which in turn calmed me down. She had
the solution to the problem. Simple and sensible of what
can be done and after the conversation had ended I sat and
I thought to myself, why am I crying I known it's not me
and I'm.not beyond mistakes I've been there, done that,
but instead of crying for "me" I should be praying for that
relative who is in trouble and does need help and It also
came to me of how I once traveled that same road-"But
God" he heard some prayer's that had been sent up for me
and he answered and turned my life around and granted
me another chance at life. Now I pray that the same God
that did it yesterday is the same God today and forever
hearing and answering prayers and still performing
miracles "I'm One" A good name is worth it's weight in
God.
Sincerely,
Deborah A. Bostick
Editor,
My name is Annie Miller I would like to thank everyone
in Gadsden County and every where else for showing their
love and care for me and my children during a bad time in
our lives. Our home was destroyed in February of this
year by a tornado. We are very thankful that we are alive
and doing well, it could have been worse. I especially want
to thank Gadsden County Times, the Red Cross, and all
of dithe Churches for their donations and prayers.
I would also like to thank everyone at the Florida State
Hospital for their donations. I especially want to thank
Gadsden County Sheriff Department for their love and
support. I will never forget Mr. Robbie Maxwell Jr. He
was my landlord and a great one at that.
I would like to thank Oak Grove AME Church of Oak
Grove for helping me get relocated,so fast. May God Bless
you all and keep us in your prayers.

The real


meaning


of Earth


Hour

By Keith Lockitch

On the evening of Saturday,
March 29, cities around the world
turned off their lights for one
hour to "raise" awareness about
global warming. In observation
of Earth Hour, iconic landmarks
such as the Sears Tower and the
Sydney Opera House went dark,
while participating individuals
turned off residential lights.
The purpose of Earth Hour,
according to its organizers, who
plan to make it an annual event,
is to encourage people to think
about how they can reduce their
energy consumption. While the
event itself--one hour with the
lights off--admittedly had little
effect on carbon emissions, what
matters, say the organizers, is the
symbolic meaning of the event.
So what is the meaning of Earth
Hour?
We hear constantly that the
debate is over on climate change-
-that it is now an indisputable
fact that human carbon emissions
are causing a planetary
emergency. Earth Hour is
intended to showcase public
concern about global warming
and to inspire people to take
practical actions to reduce their
"carbon footprints."
But it is far from indisputable
that we face any sort of planetary
crisis. Predictions of catastrophic
global warming have long been
disputed, and continue to be
disputed, by numerous serious
scientists skeptical of the global
warming "consensus."
Furthermore, what is never
mentioned is the fact that
reducing greenhouse gases to the
degree sought by global warming
activists would, itself, cause great
harm.
Politicians and
environmentalists, including
those behind Earth Hour, are not
calling on people just to change a
few light bulbs, they are calling
for a truly massive reduction in
carbon emissions--as much as 80
percent below 1990 levels.
Because our energy is
overwhelmingly carbon-based (in
2005, fossil fuels made up 86
percent of world energy
production), this necessarily
means a massive reduction in our
energy consumption.
People don't have a clear sense
of what this would mean in
practice. We, in the industrialized
world, take our abundant energy
for granted and don't consider
just how much we benefit from
its use in every minute of our
every day. We drive our cars to
work and school, we sit in our
lighted, heated homes and
offices, powering our computers
and countless other labor-saving
appliances, and we count on the
indispensable values that
industrial energy makes possible:
hospitals and grocery stores,
factories and farms, international
travel and global
telecommunications. It is hard for
us to project the degree of
sacrifice and harm that global-
warming policies would force
upon us.
This blindness to the vital
importance of energy is precisely
what Earth Hour exploits. It
sends the comforting-but-false
message: Cutting off our use of
fossil fuels would be easy and
even fun! People spent the hour
star-gazing and holding torch-lit
beach parties; restaurants offered
special candle-lit dinners. Earth
Hour makes the renunciation of
energy seem like a big party.
The participants of Earth Hour
spent an enjoyable sixty minutes
in the dark, but all the while they
remained safe in the knowledge
that the comforts and life-saving
benefits of industrial civilization
were just a light switch away.
This bears no relation whatsoever
to what our lives would actually
be like under the sort of
draconian carbon-reduction
policies that global-warming
activists are demanding:


punishing carbon taxes, severe
emissions caps, outright bans on
the construction of power plants.
What is really needed is greater
awareness of just how
indispensable carbon-based
energy is to human life. Forget
one measly hour with just the

Local centenarian Hattie Turner passes


By LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor

A Gadsden County centenari-
an who was the daughter of a
slave has died.
Hattie Turner, born July 4,
1905, passed away March 31 in
Tallahassee.
A Quincy resident and native,
she is survived by six children,
49 grandchildren, 92 great-
grandchildren and 62 great great
grandchildren.
Daughter and Quincy resident
Eula Walker said her mother
became ill on March 7 and never
fully recovered.
The fact that Hattie Alridge
Turner was born on
Independence Day had special
significance for her father.
William Alridge was born a
slave. After settling in Quincy
with his new wife, Julia
Whitfield Alridge, the couple
alternated working in tobacco
fields with caring for their nine
children.

ber streets were dirt, then step-
ping stones, then bricks, then
cement," Turner said in an inter-
view last year. "I went to Dunbar
High later named Steven High
- daddy had to buy the seat and
the books. And he paid for a
tutor."
Alridge, who was a slave in
Virginia, was dedicated to mak-
ing a good future for his nine


children.
"He worked in the house. He
was sold three times, the last time
to the Alridge family," Turner
said last year.
Turner was born at home in
the Germantown community
near where the current hospital is
located and lived her later years
in the Robertsville community.
As a child she made dolls out of


grass and played hopscotch with
siblings and friends.
She dropped out of school in
the seventh grade and helped her
mother around the house before
following her parents into the
tobacco fields to work. She mar-
ried and divorced a former child-
hood playmate and later married
John Turner, who died in 1985.
She outlived all her siblings
and credited her faith for her
longevity. She was a member of
St. John A.M.E. Church.
Services are April 12 at 1 p.m.
at St. John A.M.E. with burial at
the St. John Cemetery.
Visitation is scheduled for
noon to 5 p.m. April 11. Betsey
Funeral Home is in charge of
arrangements.
Survivors include two sons,
Monroe Stevens of Waterloo,
Iowa, and John W. Turner of
Pensacola, and four daughters,
Elease .Carpenter, Eula Walker,
Bertha Mae Thomas, and Mary
Kendrick, all of Quincy.

The worse thing that can hap-
pen to an\ sports team is to
have me pick them to win a
tournament. When I picked
Memphis to win it all last week.
I doomed the poor Tigers. What
really doomed them, though,
was not being able to hit free
throws down the stretch. It had
been a problem all year but
Memphis seemed to have
worked it out in the NCAA


Tournament.


The problem


resurfaced Monday night and
Kansas took advantage of it to


make the Jayhawks' 'Kings of
College Basketball' this year.
I got to attend Saturday
nights semi-finals at the
Alamodome and watched
Memphis dismantle UCLA.
Kansas also hammered North
Carolina, though the Tar. Heels;
did bring a 28 point lead down
to 4, with about 5 minutes left
in the game, only to see Kansas
pull awa\ again
It's the second time I attend-.
ed a Final Four in San Antonio
and both times it's been a blast.


There is much to do in the
cit\ and the people are very


friendly.


The Alamo. the


Hemisphere To%%er and the
River Walk are just some of the
places to visit. There are great
restaurants and shops in the area
and much sports activity with
the NBA Spurs, arena football,
minor league hockey. minor
league baseball, rodeos, and
many golf courses among other
things.
For a vacation I would high-
1N recommend San Antonio.


EGHS outlasts West Gadsden Schbe le


Last Thursday at Terrell
Field in Chattahoochee East
Gadsden met West Gadsden in
baseball. When everything was
over the Jaguars walked off the
field with a 21-17 win.
Most of the game the
Panthers were doing the walk-
ing as East Gadsden pitchers


handed out 20 free passes.
The Jaguars hit the ball
well. Montez Fryson and
Cameron Jackson had 3 hits
each and Cedric Atkins,
Charles Tuazon, Delvin Price,
and Alvin Bush 111 all had 2
hits.
Gary Brown slapped a cou-


pie of hits for West Gadsden.
Monday night. Brown
pitched a 2-hitter against
FAMU leading the Panthers to
a 7-1 win.
Brown struck out 6.
Brandon Moore and Quantez
Houge spanked a pair of hits
each for West Gadsden. Both


of Moore's hits were doubles.
On Tuesday, East Gadsden lost
to Godby 8-1. Godby's
Laramie Hayman pitched a
complete game for the Cougars
and Mark Baker and Cody
Poppell each had two hits. For
EGHS, Fryson drove in the
only run in the first inning.

Marcus Eastland smashed a
2 run homer for the Dodgers in
the seventh to make it 12-10

ry.

Around 500 turned out April 2
for a fiundraiser for injured Red
Hills Horse Trials competitor

C'hiaclia, who sul'lered serious
injuries, including brain lriiatin;a,


when the horse he was riding
during the cross-country event
March 15 stumbled and fell on

The rider was taken to
Tallahassec Memorial Hospital,
where lie remained on life
support for several days. His
condition improved enough by
April 2 (hat he was able to speak
and to walk short distances with
assistance.
A well-known. evening
competitor, Chiachia was flown
to a rehabilitation facility in
Buffalo, N.Y. April 3. He has
residences in both Springville,
N.Y. and in Ocala, his sister,

She and other family members
flew from Buffalo to Tallahassee

last week's fundraiser.
"He is doing very well," she
said. "Every day is a new day -
he is anxious to get going."
Johnson said despite the fact
that her brother does have

Midway to reconsider mud-bogging


By LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor

In a special meeting Tuesday
night, Midway City Council
members made plans to attend a
command performance mud
bog.
Developer James Green of
Tallahassee brought the issue to
council members last year, but
failed to secure a. special event
permit from them because of
concerns about the noise and
traffic mud bogging events
might bring to town.
Tuesday, however, council
members agreed to keep open
minds while reconsidering the
matter.
"(In 2007) there were some
concerns that came forward
regarding noise," Councilman
Charles Willis said.
"I'm not saying yes or no -
we just need to consider all
aspects of this park before we
make a decision," Council
Jerrod Holton said.
Green said mud bogging on
the roughly 100-acre site off


Brickyard Road that he wants
to turn into a multipurpose
amusement park would be qui-
eter than events held at indoor
arenas.
"I wanted you all to come
out and see that it's not as bad
as it was portrayed to be," he
said.
Green said five or six drivers
will demonstrate mud bogging
April 12 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
specifically for council mem-
bers to give them an idea of the
noise involved.
He also said he would like to
add a water park, an amphithe-
ater for musical performances
and possibly horseback riding
to the site, which he calls
"Midway Park."
"It would really put this area
on the map instead of people
just stopping to fuel up and hur-
rying out of here," Green said.
Green said after the meeting
he and his partners travel to
mud bog events all over the
region, including one held reg-
ularly in Perry.
"I'm trying to give this town


the opportunity to expand its
economic and job opportuni-
ties," lihe said. "We go to events
all over the state of Florida.
They love to see us coining,
because we spend money and
we obey the laws. What we're
trying to do here is create a
controlled environment to get
drag racing off the streets and
to have something for the kids."
Councilman James Hinson
encouraged Green and other
council members to study the
city's completed visioning
process in order to keep those
goals at the forefront when con-
sidering allowing Green to use
the site for mud bogging and
the other recreational activities
he's expressed interest in.
"1 want to make sure we stay
on point," he said.
Councilman Charlie Smith
said he'd like to see the site
developed as an amusement
park.
"When you talk about a
water park, you're talking
about 20-50 jobs for the kids in
Midway. There's nothing for


kids in Midway no jobs, no
fun. They go off and gel into
trouble," he said.
Growth Management
Director Roosevelt Morris said
bringing in an industry like the
one Green wants to locate in
Midway could expand the city's
economic development.
"Once we have something
like that, that can be here even
once a year, I think it's going to
increase the value of our city,"
he said.
Morris said developers have
already bought land for a four-
story La Quinta Inn in Midway,
and that the hotel is in its pre-
review stages.
In other matters, council
menibers unanimously
approved three candidates for
the city's education committee:
Mildred Blakely, David Knight
and Clareatha Hill.
Councilwoman Quintealia Cato
will chair the committee, which
has as its initial goal the devel-
opment of a plan for a K-fifth
grade public charter school to
be established in Midway.

afternoon. From his stint as
executive director of the
Chamber of Commerce to his
volunteer hours at the Quincy
Music Theatre, where he did
everything from marketing to
playing the bass in the pit
orchestra, Deane was a part of the
fabric of the community.
He was a member of the Rotary
Club and worked hard to recruit
and retain members in the civic
organization.
"He was a member of Rotary
but I remember him more from
coming into to the office and
talking about what was
happening in the politics of the
community. We also talked a lot
about music because we had that
in common, but he was really
good," said Michael O'Halloran.


Each Friday, Deane and a group
of friends met for lunch at
Kittrell's Restaurant. They named
themselves the "Guy Race Lunch
Bunch" in honor of the man who
had positively impacted on all of
their lives.
Everyone knew that when
Deane started talking it was going
to be a long conversation. "If you
saw him coming, you'd be there
for a while. He was a good guy,"
Peacock said affectionately.
The Rev. Erde recalled his first
day on the job when Deane
stopped in for what, he thought,
was going to be a short visit. Two
hours later, Deane said so-long to
the new pastor and by then he
knew a lot about the community
and its people.
Deane liked cars and could be


seen riding around town in his
blue vintage 1972 BMW. On nice
days, he would hop in the 1975
MGB he restored and let the
breeze blow as he waved at
people he knew and make
frequent stops to chat.
"Tenney never met a stranger,"
Erde said.
If Deane left a legacy to this
community it was his ability to
talk to people and to keep people
connected.
"I didn't know him as well as a
lot of others. He was a
Republican who helped me
tremendously in my campaign for
school superintendent. After I left
office we continued to be friends
and talked often," said Sterling
DuPont.
Deane is survived by his wife,

Commissioners also approved
for transmittal public education
facilities to the comprehensive
plan.
In 2002. the Legislature
mandated that school boards
and local governments enter
into an interlocal agreement
addressing future school siting,
enrollment, forecasting, school


capacity, infrastructure and
safety needs of schools,
schools as emergency shelters
and arrangement of facilities.
In an unrelated matter, a
Quincy couple asked the board
to give citizens warnings when
their utility service has been
interrupted.
The couple said they forgot to


pay their utility bill for the first
time since 1957 and that they
have never been late with a
payment.
Commissioners thanked the
couple for suggestions of
placing door knob hangers to
let homeowners know that their
utilities been turned off.

school supplies, new or gently
used children's books, or a cash
donation for the Panhandle Area
Educational Consortium (PAEC)
to use in its summer school
program. The children will use the
books and supplies during
summer classes as well as have
them for the new school year.
"The Quincy Music Theatre is a
jewel in our midst. Not only is it a
well-kept, beloved historic theatre,
'but the musical theatre we
produce is top quality, drawing
talent from over four counties,"
said .Kenan Fishburne, president
of the theatre. "When we launch a
production, the friendly
community feeling you get as you
attend the theatre is the best
advertisement for Quincy and
Gadsden County we can devise.
In these tough times to feel like
you are "coming home" to a
beloved musical is an antidote we
can all use."
The theatre was born in 1983 out
of a meeting at St. Paul's
Episcopal Church when the
possibility of starting a
community musical theatre was
discussed with insights from
Caroline Fallis, currently an
alumna member of the Quincy
Music Theatre board, and Nancy
Totman, the wife of church rector,
Glenn Totman who had a
background in theatre. In that
same year, the newly formed
Quincy Music Theatre, Inc., along
with a small group of local private
citizens, acquired the Leaf Theatre
building for its permanent home.
Built in 1949 as a movie theatre,
the Leaf served as one of Quincy's
two movie houses for decades. In
the 1960's, single-screen theatres
gave way to multiplex cinemas
and in the '70's, the Leaf closed
its doors and sat neglected
downtown for years.
Funds for restoring the building
into a grand entertainment facility
were secured through grants and
the private donations of the
Founding Angels: Glenn and
Nancy Totman, Jimmy and Mary-


Stuart Auman, Sada Bostic,
Margaret and Blucher Lines, John
Allen Blitch, Tom Rowan, Ann
and Paul Nicholson, Mr. and Mrs.
Bob Culverson, Mr. Phil Hilyer,
Mrs. Helen Griffen, Dr. James and
June Kenney, Caroline and Wayne
Fallis, Mr. and Mrs. Les Jones,
Mrs. Daisy Blake, Mr. and Mrs.
Charles McMillan, Mr. and Mrs.
M. B. Bates, Jr., Mr. and Mrs.
Billy Mahaffey, Reverend John
and Lucy Whitehead, and Mrs.
Julia Woodward. Today, the
building retains its classical art
deco design and a restoration of
the front of the theatre brought
back the bright neon lights and the
colorful "Tobacco Leaf" symbol
of Gadsden County's heritage.
More recent lobby and house
renovations include re-flooring
(tile, carpet, and paint) and art
deco restoration of both main
restrooms, and the implementation
of an electronic ticketing system.
As North Florida and South
Georgia's premiere and only all
musical community venue with
seating for well over four-
hundred, the Quincy Music
Theatre has produced at least four
quality musicals and reviews
every year.
Since its first staging of
H.M.S.Pinafore, attendees have
enjoyed performances of The
Sound of Music, The Mikado, A
Wonderful Life, Will Rogers
Follies, Jesus Christ Superstar as
well as productions of Fiddler on
the Roof, The King and I, Bye
Bye Birdie, and Maine. The
theatre also created a
classical/pops series called The
Artists Series at The Leaf which
has featured Trio con Brio, Big
Bend Community Orchestra,
FAMU Drum Line, and
Fellowship Brass performances.
For the first time in many years,
the balcony has been opened to
accommodate overflow seating
for two of the productions.
Musicals scheduled for the 2008-
2009 season are Singing in the
Rain, Little Women, Parade, and


Peter Pan.
The participation of volunteers
and the support of area businesses
like Capital City Bank, Thomas
Motor Cars, Morgan Stanley,
Premiere Bank, Gadsden County
Times, and the Havana Herald has
been a key factor to the theatre's
success. Because of this continued
encouragement, the Quincy Music
Theatre gives back to the
community by making their'
building available for special'
event rentals for a nominal fee.
The Quincy Music Theatre is a-
non-profit community theatre -
fulfilling its mission of providing
quality theatrical experiences. The
managing director, Bill Mock, a
corps of dedicated volunteers, and
members of the ten-person board
of directors not only make policy
and staff the theatre but also hold
key theatre roles including house
manager, box office supervisor,
and marketing director. Ticket
sales, grants, corporate sponsors
and advertisers, Angel patrons,
and season subscribers are the
chief .sources of revenue. The
theatre invites you to take part -
as an Angel (contributor), season
ticket subscriber, or as a
participant whatever your talent,
whether you want to be on stage,
work in the background or just be
in a place where people working
together have fun. For more
information about ways in which
you may become a vital part of
community theatre in Gadsden
County, please call 850-875-9444
or email qmt@tds.net.
The Chamber is a non-profit
membership based organization
committed to supporting the
importance of a vital and
prosperous business community
while working to build a healthy
economy and improve the quality
of life for all Gadsden County
citizens.

Jim Helm leaves Greensboro department after half-century of service


By LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor
Chances are, where there's
smoke, there will be Jim Helm -
still.
Even though the Greensboro
volunteer firefighter retired
March 29 after 50 years of
service, it will take some
adjusting to not respond when he
hears a fire call or sees smoke.
"I drove out by a (brush) fire
burning yesterday," he said
Saturday during a surprise
retirement party at Greensboro
Town Hall. "It sure is hard to
leave."
That pledge to public service
runs in the family. Helm and his
wife of almost 50 years, Alice,
have three children: One, Steve,
is a lieutenant with the
Tallahassee Fire Department;
another, Marsha Stiles, married
Gadsden County Sheriff's deputy
and volunteer firefighter Doug
Stiles. The couple's third child,
Larry, is a local veterinarian.
Helm recently returned from
taking his grandson, Mitch, to
Indiana to go through training to
earn certification as an

ment party at Greensboro Town Hall. Helm served more than 50 years as a firefighter. Here, he is\

emergency medical technician.
Mitch is, by the way, already
certified as a firefighter.
March 29, family members
lured him to Town Hall with a
concocted story that included


bogus plans to take him to the
Longhorn Steakhouse in
Tallahassee later for dinner.
When he stepped through the
door at Town Hall, close to 50
friends, family members and


fellow volunteer firefighters were
waiting with dinner, presentations
and well wishes.
"Well," he said, surveying the
faces in the crowd as he stepped
through the door, "I guess this


shoots the Longhorn."
Helm served in the U.S. Air
Force during the Korean War.
Afterward, he hoped to begin a
career in law enforcement. He
was underweight, however, and
officials offered him the
opportunity to train to be a
firefighter.
'"We'll start you the day after
tomorrow,'" he remembers them
telling him.
He intended to go to college to
study tb be an elementary school
teacher.
That was August 1957, in New
Port Richey.
He ended up joining the New
Port Richey'Volunteer Fire
Department instead.
In 1958, he met and married
Alice an English teacher and
the two moved to Pinellas Park.
He bought his aunt and uncle's
share of a hardware store they co-
owned with Helm's father in
1960; the couple eventually
moved back to New Port Richey.
He served there as a volunteer
firefighter from 1957-1971, when
a group of New Port Richey

BACK... TO THE





verse of the week:
And all this assembly shall know that the Lord saveth not with sword and spear: for the
battle is the Lord's, and he will give you into our hands. I Samuel 17:47 (KJV)

The Phill tLne was trying to scare
the Israelites that day and small
shepherd boy came to bring his
Brothers food over heard him. David
approached the king and told him that
I l he was ready to defeat the giant that
1 |day. Saul tried to give him his armor
but David refused he knew he had what
,.it took to beat that giant. David
brought with him that day a sling and
rocks and God took care of the rest.
'"All we have to do is read Gods word
and pray and just like that day on the
battle field with David God will show
up and take care of the rest. God is our
sword and shield.

Local artist, Cristy Kelleher displays her wind chime for
Covenant Hospice fundraiser.


Local artists support


Covenant Hospice


fimdraiser


Covenant Hospice will host its
2nd Annual Evening in the
Garden Fundraiser April llth
from 6-8pm at the Tallahassee
Garden Center, located at 507
North Calhoun Street in
downtown Tallahassee. The
event features a silent auction of
uniquely decorated flower pots
and other garden items by local
artists.
This year, Covenant has
expanded the event to include
other garden items, such as a bird
bath, mosaic stone bench, gourd
bird house, wind chime and
painted tiles.
Local Quincy artist, Cristy
Kelleher, graciously donated one
of her custom stained glass wind
chimes.
"Working on mosaics and
stained glass is my therapy,"
Kelleher said.
Kelleher has done mosaics for
four years and stained glass for
two years. She enjoys working
with and teaching others who
share her passion of glass.
Other local artist who have
submitted pieces to the silent
auction include: Ann Munroe,
Joanne Ivey, Quiton Paul and
Dawn McMillan.
Covenant Hospice is honored


by their support. Their artwork is
among approximately 50
flowerpots and garden
accessories that were decorated in
different media such as: acrylic,
mosaic tile, and faux finishes.
All proceeds will directly
benefit Covenant Hospice
patients and families in the area.
Tickets .are $25 each and can be
purchased at the door or in
advance by calling Rache'l
Layerd, Development and Public
Relations Manager for Covenant
Hospice, at 850-509-0861.
Celebrating 25 years of
"Keeping the Promise," Covenant
is widely recognized as one of the
most caring and comprehensive
hospices in the nation, providing
a very special kind of service for
persons with life-limiting
illnesses 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 special care to the
community of the eight counties
in the Big Bend area.

Stewart Street Elementary honored at national program


School touted for TAP program


Stewart Street Elementary
School was highlighted at the
National Teacher Advancement
Program in Los Angeles,
California last week.
As members of the confer-
ence opened their briefcases,
the first item they saw was a
Milken Family Foundation
magazine with Stewart Street


mentioned on the front cover
and inside a two page article
entitled "TAP Develops Highly
Skilled Teachers in High-Need
Schools."
The article stated, "the
results show that Gadsden
County students are just as
bright as those in any high-per-
forming school...it doesn't


matter where our kids come
from...but when they get here,
it is our job to nurture them and
instill in them the belief that
they can succeed."
Members of Stewart Street
cheered when Lowell Milken,
Founder of TAP, touted the
accomplishments of Stewart
Street for rising from a
"Double F" school to a "B"
school in two years to over 650
education leaders from all over


the country.
Stewart Street's principal
Juanita Ellis shared with others
how she accomplished these
remarkable achievements on
the panel, "Transforming a
School: Stories from the
Field."
The conversation focused on
the challenges leaders face in
the process of school reform
and the. solutions they discov-
ered to create meaningful


change.
The Teacher Advancement
Program (TAP) is a compre-
hensive, research-based school
reform that seeks to attract tal-
ented people to the profession
and then create an environment
in which they can thrive. It
does so by offering educators
sustained opportunities for
career advancement, ongoing
school-based professional
development, instructionally


focused accountability and per-
formance pay. Hence, the
Teacher Advancement Program
enhances the learning of all
children and contributes to the
closing of achievement gaps.
Superintendent Reginald
James stated, "I am very
pleased with the success of the
TAP program at Stewart Street
and I will be seeking funding to
expand the program into other
schools next year."


FIREFIGHTER from Page B 1


volunteer firefighters
established the Magnolia Valley
Volunteer Fire Department. He
was-chief of that department
from 1971-1985.
The department received no
county funding; any money
used for equipment or anything
else came from fundraisers put
on by firefighters.
There was rarely a dull
moment around the Helm house.
While Helm fought fires, his
wife took firefighters overcome
by smoke and exhaustion to the
hospital and provided food and
water.
In 1962, he was working a
house fire in New Port Richey
when he fell through the roof -
rafters and all. He landed on a
burning bed inside the house
and both of his were burned in


the accident.
He and his wife had a I-year-
old and a young infant at the
time; it was a difficult situation.
"I said, 'I can't do it
anymore,'" Mrs. Helm recalls.
"I found out I could."
That's one of two things, in his
life he would change if he
could, he said.
The other was an accident on a
rainy road in North Carolina.
He was there on vacation with
his family; a woman driving a
car lost control and slid in front
of his SUV. She was killed.
Investigators told Helm there
was nothing he could have
done; the day still haunts him,
however.
One of Helm's favorite
pictures and he has many -
was taken by a newspaper


photographer as. Helm looked
out over a raging forest fire.
"The pine trees were crowning
- I told everybody I knew what
the captain of the Poseidon felt
like in the movie 'Poseidon
Adventure,'" he said.
Helm was the first volunteer
fire chief in state history to hold
office in the Florida Fire Chief's
Association, and he has an
honorary lifetime membership
in the organization.
He served as district director
for the association when he was
in the ;New Port Richey area,
and again after he moved to
GreenSboro.
There were a few other firsts.
"I have the distinction of being
the first fire chief in the state of
Florida to have a pregnant
firefighter and her mother had


to drive a pumper to a fire," he
said. "We started with three
women who were wives of
firefighters. Each department
painted the end of its hoses a
different color so they wouldn't
get mixed up. Guess what I
painted mine? Pink."
After retiring from the
hardware store business, Helm
and his family moved to this
area. He worked her as waste
services coordinator for
Gadsden County, then at the
Gadsden County Sheriff's
Office transporting patients.
, A bad back made that a short-
lived career option, so he went
to work for then-property
appraiser George Hamilton as a
field appraiser. He retired from
the county in 1998, and worked
for a year at PepCo, a


recreational vehicle retailer.
He was well suited for the
post, considering camping and
hunting are lifetime hobbies of
his.
He served as a firefighter at
the Greensboro Volunteer Fire
Department for 22 years, and
retired as the department's
safety officer.
"We're going to miss his eyes
and ears when we go on a run,"
Greensboro volunteer firefighter
J.B. Toole said.
Greensboro Mayor buddy
Pitts was one of those present at
Helm's retirement party, as were
Greensboro Police Chief
Marianne Scholer, several Town
Council representatives,
volunteer firefighters and a host
of friends and family members.
"On behalf of the Town


Council, congratulations," Pitts
said at the party.
"We appreciate everything
you've done."
"When I came up here and had
retired, I was still trying to
figure out which end of the hose
to hold and like others, Jim took
me under his wing," Chief
Scholer said.
"We should all be in the kind
of condition he's in after
serving for 50 years. God bless
you, Godspeed and we love
you."
Presentations at the party
included a commemorative
firefighter's ax, a handmade
sign citing his 50 years of
service, a plaque and a cake
decorated with a firefighter's
emblem that had his number
written across the center.
