Volunteers needed to
help improve local
animal control facility

by LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor
It was Hector that started it all.
When the little Beagle mix went missing in
December, his owner, Laurie Rigg, went
looking.
She posted flyers. She scoured the
countryside. She visited the Animal Control
facility at the county dump.
She didn't find Hector there he turned up
and is back home, safe and sound but she
found a calling.
"When I went in there, I thought, 'This is
something I can help with,'" Rigg said of the
Animal Control facility.
She began volunteering at the site soon
afterward, and the Gadsden County Humane
Society work day scheduled for April 19 is an
outgrowth of that.

Quincy man charged with custody interference

19-year-old allegedly transported missing Brevard 12-year-old to Gadsden


by LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor
Quincy police arrested James D.
McClish Linch, 19, of Quincy Friday
on charges of interference with child
custody after he transporting a 12-
year-old girl from Brevard County to
his father's Quincy home.
Linch's father notified the Quincy
Police Department after his son and a


12-year-old girl
entered his home
through a back
door.
The girl had
been reported
missing and an
arrest warrant was
issued by the
Brevard County
Sheriffs Office for


James Linch's arrest in connection
with her disappearance.
The girl had planned to run away,
and left a note for her mother saying
she was leaving with Linch. The two
met on the Internet.
QPD Sgt. Eugene Monroe and
Officer G. Robinson responded to the
call from Linch's father.
A criminal check on Linch revealed
he had an open Brevard County


warren for interference with child
custody.
Linch and the girl were transported
to QPD, where Inv. Clarence Pearson
interviewed Linch, who was then
transported to the Gadsden County
Jail.
He will be transported to Brevard
County "relatively quickly," a Brevard
County Sheriffs Office spokesman
said.


A day at the park


These three young ladies
were among the more than
100 people from Gadsden
County, including govern-
ment officials, community
residents and Legislative
Representative Curtis
Richardson celebrated the
renovation of Robertsville
Park Saturday, marking the
third park project the county
has completed since initiating
talks more than four years
ago to revive its recreation
facilities. Up next is the
groundbreaking for Sawdust
Park on Saurday. See story

Quincy man killed in motorcycle accident


by LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor
A 22-year-old Quincy died in a
wreck on Pat Thomas Parkway Friday
morning.
Claude Jerome Sweet Jr. was
transported to Tallahassee Memorial
Hospital after the 3:15 a.m. wreck,
where he succumbed to his injuries.
Services are Saturday at 1 p.m. at
Mt. Pilgrim P.B. Church with burial at
Sunnyvale Cemetery.
Visitation is Friday from 2-7 p.m.
The funeral home in charge of


arrangements is Williams Funeral
Home.
According to Florida Highway Patrol
reports, Sweet was driving a 2007
Honda dirt bike north on Pat Thomas
Parkway with no headlight, no helmet
and no reflective markings.
John Howell Walker, 50, of Havana
was driving his 1990 Dodge van south
on Pat Thomas Parkway and was
turning left into the Gadsden
Correctional Institute when the dirt
bike entered his path, colliding with
the front right of the van.
FHP reports say Walker had waited


for two vehicles to pass before making
the turn.
Walker's van came to a rest around
20 feet east of the point of impact at
the entrance of GCI. The dirt bike
came to a rest roughly 25 feet east of
the point of impact; Sweet landed 30
feet east of the point of impact after
being ejected from the dirt bike. There
were no street lights in the area of the
crash.
FHP homicide investigators
responded to the scene to assist with
the investigation; FHP troopers were
also assisted by the Gadsden County


Sheriffs Office and the Gadsden
County EMS.

and Antonio Sweet of Quincy; and six
sisters: Cynthia Rollins, Felicia Harris

Goat Field Day


By all accounts, the annual
Goat Field Day last Friday,
sponsored by Florida A & M
University at the Research and
Extension Office on Old
Bainbridge Road in the St.
John Community north of
Quincy, was a success. More
than 100 people, the largest
group ever, attended
workshops on subjects ranging
from how to breed and grow
healthy animals to marketing
the meat product. Rev. Cedric
Spradley (left) of Quincy said
he found the workshops very
informative. Spradley visited
the mature goat pens with
FAMU extension service
veterinarian Dr. Eric Peterson
(center) and Angela-McKenzie-
Jakes, small ruminant program
leader. Field Day participants
had the opportunity to sample
dishes prepared from goat
meat.

mix between Shumard Oaks, Long
Leaf Pines, and magnolias planted
between Robertsville Park, St.
John Park, Friendship Park,
Rosedale Park, Drake Acres, and
Sawdust Park.



DESKS

"The trees serve to recreate a
natural shade structure and habitat
for our parks," said Charles
Chapman, Parks and Recreation
Coordinator.
The Board of County
Commissioners is appreciative to
the U.S. Department of Forestry
for making this project a success
with funding assistance of $10,000
through their Urban and
Community Forestry Grant and to
the Florida Department of
Agriculture Division of Forestry
for their technical assistance.
"The planting of native trees in


our parks help forward our vision
of building beautiful escapes from
our daily lives for our residents -
young
and old," said Edward J. Dixon,
chairman of the Gadsden County
Board of County Commissioners.
Gadsden County is committed to
the beautification of its rural
communities and appreciates all
state partners for their assistance.

1- "Copyrighted Matei


It may surprise you to learn that at
my house, when we are not enraptured
with PBS educational programming
and host of other productive, life-
enriching activities like eating supper,
we watch the occasional cartoon.
The word "occasional" is open to
interpretation.
I swore off cartoons when I was 11
or 12, as my friends had already
discovered Teen Beat magazine and it
became increasingly difficult to
discuss Leif Garret and The Justice
League in the same conversation.
Actually, I did sneak the occasional
cartoon all under the guise of
supervising my three younger siblings
(read: bossing them around
unceasingly and maintaining control
of which cartoons we watched).
Parenthood had given me new
license to watch cartoons (still
maintaining control of which cartoons
we watch) and that's why my son has
been exposed to a steady diet of
Droopy, (especially the ones with
Wolf cameos), Scooby Doo, the pre-
politically correct version, and
anything produced between 1943 and
1958. The artistry and music in
cartoons during that era is unbeatable.
Inexplicably, the Wolf that appears
fairly often in Droopy cartoons is one
of my favorite characters.
Clearly this indicates a need for
some sort of self-help literature. Nah.
Death before Dr. Phil.
The Wolf slings around a serious
Southern accent like he knows how to
use it, and made his last appearance in
"Sheep Wrecked," released in 1958.

Wolf, whistling, walks up to
Droopy's sheep herd. Sees an
opportunity. Walks in. Droopy
alternately shoots him, knocks him in
the head and tricks him into looking
down the long end of a cannon, to
which the Wolf, in classic style,
responds, "Funny joke, man."
After a second cannonball to the
head, a charred Wolf says,
appreciatively, "Funny JOKE, man."
He also pursues a number of cartoon
babes in the various Droopy episodes,
usually right before somebody whacks
him in the head with a frying pan and
drags him, star-circled head and all,
off the scene.
The Christmas classics Rudolph
the Red-Nosed Reindeer (great Burl
Ives action there), Frosty the
Snowman, Santa Claus is Coming to
Town don't have enough head-
conking to keep my son entertained.
But it's because of those that on an
early morning following a late work
night I find myself singing "Put one
... foot in front ... of the other ...."
OK, it's not because of those. For
YEARS I have done that there is a
song, or a Dr. Seuss-like rhyme, for
just about every activity.
It's my idiot-savant inner self in full
swing.
I haven't decided whether that
makes me a candidate for a career as a
jingle writer or for occupancy of a
padded cell.
Think I'll just stick with the
journalism gig and call it good
background material.
For what, I'm not.sure.

Receiving blood when I gave
birth to my first child
changed my life. My daughter
was born with a birth defect
and had multiple surgeries
during her lifetime. The blood
she received gave us more days
to cherish being with her until
she received her wings in
2002 at the age of 22.

money

High as a kite but now it is changing to a
downward flight. Such is the financial position
of this country. Unfortunately, this is not
surprising after a bit of consideration. There is
an old saying, which goes something to the
effect: What is up must come down and I might
add; the higher the position the greater the fall.
This may sound odd but I think many of the
salaries, in general, are too high. In the long run,
this may be against us because we have become
accustomed to a certain standard of living. So
when money becomes tight the harder the
financial strain can be. When this does happen,
I imagine that whoever is used to having less
will probably be the ones who get by the best.
Credit is another aspect, which again, could be
against us before it is all said and done. These
days, obtaining it is much too easy, especially
for the younger generations. I remember the
days when trying to get credit on one's own was
a chore. Considering that money is easily
accessible because of high wages and credit is
easily acquired, it is no wonder this country's
standard of living is so high.
Just look at the poverty level in this country. I
understand it is around thirty four thousand
dollars per year. The reason the poverty level is
high is simple. The standard of living is too
high.
Lately, one of the so-called hot news items is
the housing foreclosures. I admit that it is not
easy for me to be sympathetic toward someone
losing a house that cost in the hundreds of
thousands of dollars with a variable rate loan. At
the same time, I can feel quite sympathetic when
hearing of a person losing a house which, costs
say, in the sixty or seventy thousand dollar range
with a fixed rate mortgage especially if that
person has worked his or her self half to death
trying to pay for it.
Now, the government is trying to fix the
housing foreclosure situation. Why are they
doing this? I can only wonder if it is for the
same reason they do other things. Because it
seems to make very little or no sense?
I am afraid this stimulus payment deal is going
to be only a temporary band aid that will not
stretch but so far then it will pop loose and we
will find ourselves right back in the same place.
I am afraid that when our leaders do
something of this magnitude it entices people,
especially the younger generations, to expect the
government to bail them out the same situation
or maybe other problems later. There are plenty
of people, already, expecting much from the
government most people, especially ones of the
older generations, never expected the
government to give them a cotton-picking hand
with anything. When the older generations
came across hard times, whether it was financial
or otherwise, they pulled themselves up by their
boot strings and helped themselves get through
or over the problem or maybe they had family to
help them a bit. Either way, they took care of
their own and did not want, much less expect the
government to help them with a thing. I believe
this is referred to as having pride. There seems
to be too little of that this day and time.
Therefore, the government has their hands in our
business even more and simply because we
invite them.
We can learn much from the older generations
like honesty, hard work, perseverance, integrity,
caring, love, and a lesson or two about how not
to be focused just on me and myself. Much of
what the older ones did in their generation
- worked will because of the aforementioned
characteristics. Many of them continue to live
by these same attributes and this is why there are
so many content, financially secure, elderly,
people around today. They can teach us much if
we would look and listen. We might just learn
some valuable things and I do not mean
materialistically.
Another reason for the current economy
situation is the young mothers are working a full
time job. Sound odd? It is not if just you think
about it.
If the young mothers would stay home, rear
their children, and take care of the house, we
may very well see some drop in prices where it
counts; like groceries, houses, vehicles, gasoline,
and such. Yes, it will be hard for many couples
but this can be done. Besides getting some
financial stabilization in this country, we could
also see the street level go down for many
mothers and children and the family unit just
might have a chance of surviving.
Now, I realize the husbands of these young
working wives might have to work a part time
job, along with their fiIlltime work, so the
household budget can be maintained. Yet, this is
a small price to pay for a stronger morally sound
family unit. This is simply a matter of priorities.
Is it going to be money, money, money, or
family? What will we choose?
When a baby is born; he or she needs an
involved mother throughout the teenage years.
A family atmosphere and the security of a warm
home is a major ingredient for rearing a healthy,
wholesome, child in body and spirit.
One reason the family unit in this country has
gone to pot is that young mothers are having
babies, then immediately hitting the time clock
again! If a young mother would stay home,
where she needs to be and see to the family and
the house this could be one way to improve on
today's family situation. One of the benefits
would be less juvenile delinquency because the
mother would be in a better position to see to her
offspring.
There is a chance that this country's economy
can change but first our priorities have to be in
the right order. It needs to begin with us
correcting the family unit and not worshiping
the so-called almighty dollar. With undying

Gretna student treated for MRSA staph infection


by LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor
A student at Gretna
Elementary School was treated
for a MRSA staph infection last
week.
Gadsden County Schools
Superintendent Reginald James
said no other students have been


diagnosed since April 9, and that
the district put sanitizers in
schools last year in an attempt to
minimize the spread of commu-
nicable diseases.
"Last year in anticipation of
possible infections as a result of
dangerous bacteria, we placed
sanitizer dispensers in all of our
schools. Our staff has been prop-


erly trained and we will continu-
ally work to make certain all of
our children are safe," James
said.
The student who contracted
the illness was treated by a doc-
tor and released.
The school district sent main-
tenance crews the morning after
the child was diagnosed to disin-


lfec areas the child frequented as
a precaution.
MRSA Methicillin-Resistant
Staphylococcus aureus is, like
its name implies, resistant to
some types of antibiotics. It can
cause skin infections that may
look like boils which are often
painful, swollen, red and have
drainage. This bacteria usually


enters the skin through cuts or
scrapes. MRSA can lead to seri-
ous life threatening infections,
but that's uncommon in people
who are not immunocompro-
mised in some way.
The best way to protect from
MRSA and other bacteria is to
practice good hygiene washing
hands with soap and water or


using a hand sanitizer and taking
a shower after sports activities.
Adding one tablespoon of bleach
to a full tub of bath water may
also help decrease skin infec-
tions. Those who are allergic to
chlorine should avoid use of
bleach. Other bleach safety tips
include avoiding eye contact or
placing bleach directly on skin.

6 The Gadsden County Times April 17, 2008

Legislators looking to increase Big Bend Transit funding


By EW)ANDE ADDIE
Your Capitol Bureaui
Some Gadsden County residents
\\ ill be without public transportation
it' the state fails to increase funding
to Big Bend Transit (B1'1T).
The transit service is funded by
[lhe state and the county. Currently.
$ I.50 from each state motor vehicle
license fee goes to the
Transportation for the
Disadvantaged Trust Fund. Each
county gets an allocation.
The transit service also receives
luiinds from other state agencies and
Medicaid.
I Curtis Richardson, D-
T ill.dil... has sponsored a bill
(HB 1287) that would increase the
motor vehicle fee by $1.50 for all


Floridians buying license lags.
Richardson said he's hopeful the
bill could be a permanent solution.
But because the issue arose after
the COuntny's agenda was IinaliIcd, it
was filed late and without a senator's
support. There has been itno action lonl
11 B 1287 since March 10.
"It's difficult to( get a bill heard
without a senate companion, but as
an alternative, Sen. (Al) Lawson and
I are trying to get it included in one
of the transportation bills that's
already moving throughh"
Richardson said.
"It's hard to say at this point
(because) it's still early in the ses-
sion, but I'm optimistic that it will
pass because it's a dire need,"
Richardson said.
"We could use support from the

In Gadsden County, BBT pro-
vides transportation for Medicaid
patients and individuals unable to
transport themselves due to disabili-
ty, economic status or age. BBT's
service was cut back in late fall
because of financial issues.
Ted Waters, general manager of
BBT, said the skyrocketing cost of
gasoline and growth in Gadsden
,County, are negative factors.
"Gadsden County has overspent
their allocation by four times as
much as the money they received,"


Waters said. "We were absorbing
that cost, but that stopped Jan I.
(2(X)8) when we had to cut it back
by about 65 percent in the number
of trips we did."
Residents depended on those
trips to get to work and to neighbor-
ing cities such as Tallahassee,
Jacksonville and even Gainesville
for health services, Waters added.
BBT employs 77 people
statewide. It uses 90 vehicles. Some
are 12-seat vans.
BBT also has wheelchair acces-
sible vehicles.
Although the state and Gadsden
County recently awarded BBT
$110,000,that funding will only
restore most of the service until the
fiscal year ends on June 30, 2008.

DOC investigating employee

By LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor

Florida Department of Corrections officials confirmed
Wednesday morning they have opened a criminal investiga-
tion of a Gadsden Correctional Facility employee.
The investigation began Monday night, and the Florida
Department of Law Enforcement was called in to collect
forensic evidence.
A spokeswoman for FDOC said Wednesday she could
not divulge any further details until the investigation is con-
cluded and officials determine whether the allegations are
substantiated.
The facility houses female inmates and is located on
Greensboro Highway in Gretna.
Currently, around 1,500 women are incarcerated at the
prison.

To make that happen, however,
training for those positions has to
be in place the sooner, the better.
"We can show (students) all ways
to succeed in our small but
prosperous county," Rackley said.
"They will gain the information on
how to do that first here at home."
Tedesco noted the initiative is an
outgrowth of the commitment of
professionals community wide to
provide opportunities for accessible
training in high-wage fields.
"With all of us working together
toward this combined mission, we
know we will be successful," she
said.
The WIRED initiative is in its
third year of existence; during that
time, it has provided $2.3 million

"1I put together a plan I thought
could work," Rigg said.
She later presented the plan to
County Manager MarIon Brown,
who asked her to present it to the
County Commission.
After commissioners supported
her ideas, she and Humane Society
members started working together
to organize a work day.


Both Rigg, who works as an
office administrator for Biological
Research Associates in Tallahassee,
and Humane Society members say
they are hoping for a big turnout
Saturday.
County employees are also going
to help with the work. The county
currently has two animal control
officers.

County can do it."
West Gadsden Principal Joe
Lewis said he is grateful for the
chance to offer students another
vocational training option.
"Thank you all for the'
opportunity to change our culture at
West Gadsden High School," he.
said.
The IT Academy is the second in
the county that aims to create
careers for students right out of.
high school.
In 2006, the district unveiled the
Corrections Officers' Academy,
which allowed seniors to train to
become certified corrections
officers at East Gadsden High
School. The academy was
expanded to West Gadsden High
School at the beginning of this
school year.
"Our students are being prepared -
for a brighter future right now. The
possibilities are, and should be,
limitless for all of our students'
regardless of whether they attend.
college or not and this academy.
provides them an opportunity to do .
that. The career academies are
creating opportunities that were not
available to our students before
now," James said.

New


Spring is here, though it's hard to
believe after this week's cold snap.
Spring. actuality has officially been
here for close to a month. And Majoi
League Baseball's -regular season has


been going tor about that month. In
the back oft m\ mind I knew I had foi-
got something. 'hjt something wiis I
hadn't made my predictions for the
20(08 season


I know niost tteamsn hae .aliead',
played around 15 games, but it' s till
eail\. e.tily, in the carp.paign. and
though I ma.i be hedging some it real-
l\ doesn't matter Because. [I'm just as
bad picking ba,i-eball a, I am picking
other sports.
Take list Near. I said Atlanta would
win the Worhl Series o\c I the
Minnasola Tw ins
I think the Red Sox won it ovei tihe
Rockies, in fact i'm sure that's what
happened.
And since the Bo;ton teinm is in the
Amcncan Leigue East let's start the
column by picking that division.
1 ihink those Red So\ wMIill win this
di% ision. Tlhen line-up has pretty\ much
iemrnaicd the same They did pick tip ai
big stick in Sean Casey to replace
Mike Lowell. That could add more
powei. The pitching is still good. That
could be the main edge they hale mcr
theii hated rivals, the Yankees. Nev,
York sull has that All-lniternationial


e\er\d. h line up hut their pitching is a
bunch of old arms mi\ed in with a
bunch of new arms. Other East
Di ,iion teams helped themselves
quite a hit in the ofl seasonand it could
not be iist a So\-Yankee division. But,
I still leel Boston will be division
ch.uimps.
IThe Al. Central should be a close
di\,sion all year. Detroit spent much
nione\ in the off season, though. it has-
n't paid ort early in the year. But early),
it is and as the weather gets \warmer so
should the Tigers. However I think
Chicago vi the team to beat in the
Centr.l. They're pretty powerful in the
middle of the line up and if the pitch-
ing holds up they could get back to the
top ot the division.
In the AL West the Angels appear
to hale the inside track to thie crown.
Their main competition will be
Oakland. a team that always seems to
come up with players, especially pitch-
ers. and pitching is what it takes to win


In the American League Im pick-
ing the Red So.\x. White Sox, and
Angels as division winners and I take
Oakland as the Wild Card team.
As for the National League, in the
East I'll pick Atlanta. They're pretty
solid and .have Bobby Cox. That
should carry them to the top of the
di\ vision with the Meis being their main
foe.
St. Louis will bounce back and take
the Central with Milwaukee and the
Cubs hot on their tail feathers.
Anzona should replace Colorado as
West Champions, though the Rockies
and San Diego will rattle the Rattlers.
The National league will have
Atlanta. St. Louis. and Arizona as divi-
sion champs with the Cubs being the
Wild Card team.
What's going to happen next is the
White Sox and the Cubs will win the
league play -offs. But. the Cubs still
won't win a World Series. The World
Champions will be the Chi-Sox.


Red Birds prevail in home opener


It wasn't pretty, but it was a
win, none the less. The
Chattahoochee Red Birds won
their Alabama/Georgia/Florida
Baseball League home opener
10-6 over the Ichauway Red
Sox, Sunday at Terrell Field.
Andy Pace was the winning


pitcher and Tony Herzog got the
save.
Chattahoochee went ahead in
the game with 2 third inning
runs. Herzog and Robbie Fleck
had run scoring hits in the
frame.
The Red Birds then built a 7-


3 lead after six innings only to
see Ichauway rally to cut it to 7-
6 at the end of seven.
Some key defensive plays
including 2 inning ending dou-
ble plays when the Red Sox had
the bases loaded allowed the
Red Birds hold on to the win.


Chattahoochee is 2-0 for the
year and they will play the
Miccosukee Devils in
Tallahassee Sunday.
The following Sunday, the
Red Birds will host the Quincy
Dodgers. All Sunday games
start at 3 pillm.


EGHS district softball ousted by Arnold

ethic to finish second in the Class
A District 2 tournament last week
held at Maclay. All five top play-
ers and both doubles teams
advanced to semifinals with only
two. singles "pla ers not making


the finals.

the doubles teams of M.
Summerford/Watson and B.


Summerford/Dooner all won
quarterfinals and semifinals
matches on Wednesday setting
up five matches for the Lady Cat
squad on Thursday.
The team played hard but was
defeated in all finals matches to
Maclay. Maclay won the tourna-
ment and the Lady Cats placed


second in points. The second
place finish entitled them to a
playoff spot at South Walton
High School in South Walton
County. The girls headed there
on Tuesday to take on the District
I winner. If they win, they have
earned a revenge match against
Maclay on Friday at Maclay.


East Gadsden lifters had big spring

ful season of growth and progress. At the recent Cougar Challenge

Thursday night and picked up their second in win of the week on
Friday night against Franklin County. It was the second time the
two schools had met. Munroe won the first game 10-1 but this time

McKinnon, Kaitlyn Rentz and Crystal Wade.
The Munroe team allowed their pitching and defense to make up
for the missing offense as they went on- to 2-0 win over the
Seahawks. Munroe scored one run in the first when Georgia Davis

Seminole rmlinAd


Let's begin with bad
news. First, as of September
this year, Georgia and Florida
will not honor 65 fishermen in
each others state. That slaps
me rite in the face, as I love to
fly fish Crooked River in the
summer. Crooked River is a
tidel river between the
Oklocknee and Carabell
Rivers. It runs 6 hours one
way and 6 hours the other and


if full of big ole Red Bellies,
Stumpknockers and
Shellcrackers. Then down
river from the Talquin Dam is
some fine fine fly fishen and
Beetle Spin for Bream. So be
it, it's done done.
Pole fishermen have had
just a good ole time this week.
Shellcracker was the No. 1 fish
with 6 or 8 hundred of them
was taken this week. Surely


the Lake should have dropped
a little because about the same
amount of Crappie was taken.
One 10 year old boy, Brandon
Jernigan, had a 2 ? lbs.
Crappie.
One man hit Shellcrackers
at Faceville Landing and
caught 74 with his grandson.
He sed launch your boat and
follow your nose.
Eddie Ditto, fishen with his


son took 18 nice Bass on
Plastic. He's the man who
wares the "T-Shirt" saying,
"You point, we poke!" mean-
ing he pokes holes in the
ground.
Mrs. Pam Martin-Wells fin-
ished the WBFL Tournement
in 19th place. It's near Dallas,
TX and it was muddy and
storming the early part. Only
91 fish caught.


Lots of folks in Georgia are
raisen sand about the fishen
and hunting license being
taken to a bank in Mo. They
may raise anuff sand in
Gritsville USA to get it
changed.
The Chattahoochee pro-
duced a 51 lbs. Flathead
Catfish this week, but it's not a
GA record nor an AL record
but enough to have a fish fry at


his church.
Nic Jeter and his buddy,
Durran Brock took 2 big Tom
Turkeys looks like Nic can
call Turkeys as well as Fish.
Our friend, Jim Yarbrough
is now a 2-Star General in the
US Army. He will be transfer-
ring from Iraq to Fort Polk, LA
to train soldiers to go to Iraq.
We will miss .him around here,
he's a great fellow and friend.

Robertsville Park celebrates renovation


Sawdust Park set for groundbreaking


More than 100 people from
Gadsden County, including
government officials, commu-
nity residents and Legislative
Representative Curtis
Richardson celebrated the ren-
ovation of Robertsville Park
Saturday, marking 'the third
park project the county has
completed since initiating
talks more than four years ago
to revive its recreation facili-
ties.
Scattered showers did not
stop children from the
Robertsville area from coming
out to eat and participate in the
numerous activities, including
basketball and face and air-
bush paintings.
The Gadsden County
Sheriff's Department even
passed out coloring books,
crayons and candy to the area's
youth.
"The day just could not
have been any better," said
Gadsden County
Commissioner Brenda A. Holt.


"Last year we started with St.
John Park and now we have
Robertsville up and running.
We are definitely on a roll and
will continue to improve our
parks until they are all exam-
ples of what we can do when
we work together."
Gadsden County
Commissioners will host a
groundbreaking ceremony for
Sawdust Park this coming
Saturday from 11 a.m. to 1
p.m.
The Florida Legislature is
funding Gadsden County park
renovations with some
$336,000 through a grant from
the Florida Department of
Environmental Protection's
Recreation Development
Assistance Program.
Robertsville was funded at
$154,500, Sawdust Park was
awarded $181,500 and $5,000
in a KaBoom Home Depot
grant.
The improvements at both
parks include resurfacing bas-


ketball courts, replacing back-
boards and rims and building a
pavilion with male and female
restroom facilities. Park reno-
vations also include new pic-
nic tables, park benches, a
walking and tricycle trail and
state-of-the-art playground
equipment.
"We try to make each park
unique to'its area and the resi-
dents that it will serve, said
Charles Chapman, Gadsden
County Parks and Recreation
Coordinator.
"And we've done that in
Robertsville and will continue
with Sawdust when we start
building a baseball field
there."
While this isn't the first in
the county, it is the first to be
funded by this commission,
which shows just how much of
priority these park improve-
ments are to this Board."
For more information,
please contact Jon D. Brown,
Gadsden County Public
Information Officer, by phone
at (850) 627-6698 or by email

County's new ambulances now outfitted and on the road


It was no secret that Gadsden
County's ambulances have been
working overtime since Gadsden
Community Hospital closed in
2005. Wear and tear on the
ambulances caused emergency
care providers, who use the
ambulances daily, a lot of
concern.


They were so concerned that
during a regular meeting of the
Board of County Commissioners
about six months ago they
explained ,that the need for new
ambulances had become critical.
Commissioners answered and
immediately ordered two new
vehicles.


Brian Beasley, EMS director,
said that each of the vehicles cost
approximately $110,000. The
new ambulances 'were delivered
two weeks ago and were added to
the fleet Wednesday. Two of the
older ambulances, each with
between 200,000 and 225,000
miles will be retired.


"These are the new 2008 Chevy
3500 heavy duty chassie that are
generator operated. The generator
will run all of the lights and the
air conditioner. I just really want
to thank the commissioners for
stepping up to the plate as soon as
we made the request," Beasley
said.


The ride is also smoother and,
he said, the fear of breakdowns
has been eliminated. Before they
could hit the road, however, the
radios had to be installed and
stripping and painting had to be
completed.
"The new ones are easier to see
and they look very good," said


paramedic Barbara Law. The
colors are the same colors as used
by the Miami Dolphins.
The public too 'has noticed the
new ambulances. Fanita Henry
commented on how way the new
ambulances looked.
"They are really sharp and easy
to see," she said.


The ambulance at left is
still in good condition
with 268,000 miles. Right,
Paramedic Barbara Law
points to the heart
machine that was
installed in the new
ambulance.

Cairo Goodwill Industries-
Big Bend has been awarded a
$1,500,000.00 loan to construct
and operate a 15 unit,
handicapped accessible housing
complex.
The loan will cover all the
expenses in developing the
complex, but it does not cover
the cost of the land. Ground
breaking is scheduled for this
late summer and Goodwill
Industries is currently
conducting a fundraising drive
to raise the $150,000 necessary
to purchase the property at
Ridge Avenue in Cairo.
The housing complex will
benefit low income adults who
are in need of greater
accessibility that isn't available
in traditional apartment settings.


The individual apartments will
be equipped with larger
doorways, roll under counter
tops and showers large enough
for a wheelchair.
Jeremy Lewis is wheelchair
bound and lived in a Goodwill
operated housing complex in
Panama City. He says it's the
little things make all the
difference "people take washing
dishes for granted. But before,
the house I was living in, there
was a wall right in front of the
sink, and it I couldn't get close
enough to actually wash the
dishes. With the new handicap
accessible sink I can just roll up
under there, wash the dishes and
everything's fine" says Lewis.

nine apartment complexes in
north Florida and South
Georgia.
These apartments provided
homes to 402 individuals last
year Eight of these apartment
complexes are designed barrier
free for people with disabilities
to live comfortably and
affordably. The ninth complex
is home to 64 elderly
individuals.
Goodwill's goal is to build
housing complexes in as many
communities as possible. This
will allow the people who are in
need of greater accessibility to
live closer to their families,
friends and allow them to stay
in the community that they call
home.
Former Goodwill Bainbridge


resident Julia Bright says it is
important to her to stay near her
family, "I get very lonely but,
they (my family) can't come up
here every week. If I were still
living close to my family
someone would come and see
me every day, but they can't do
that now because I am so far
away".
Goodwill President and CEO
Fred Shelfer says the Cairo
housing complex is a much
needed development.
"The demand for accessible
housing is high in the Big Bend
area and we currently have
people on a waiting list for
these apartments. This complex
in Cairo will place people into a
better home that is close to their
family and friends".

RFM Physics launches rocket
The Robert F. Munroe Day School Physics class spent
Wednesday morning prior to Spring Break on the football
field for a blast off of one of the rockets built during class.
The experiment was a success as the water pump
propulsion booster sent the rocket approximately 100 feet
into the air. The parachute opened as expected during the
initial launch. Mr. Neal Faircloth, the science teacher, led
the group through the intricacies of building the unit.
Shown are Jason Cook, Alex Clark, and Malorie
McKinnon setting up the launching. In the second picture
Bradley Trim and Crystal Wade assist in re-stuffing the
chute for a second launch.

CES springs forward after FCAT


It's a tea party at HMS


Chattahoochee Elementary
School is springing forward
after the FCAT!! We are
thrilled about the days of
school. There was an awards
assembly held on March 28,
2008, several students were
recognized and awarded for
their achievement. Students
who made Principal's List (all
A) A-B Honor Roll, Perfect
Attendance, Citizenship and
Most Improved were acknowl-
edged. Students who showed


the highest percentage of gains
in the Pearson's Successmaker
Computer Laboratory for the
third nine weeks were awarded
bicycles. Students are continu-
ing to dedicate themselves to
the Accelerated Reader
Program. Everyone Plans to
continue reading and Gaining
points on the reading racetrack.
Faculty and Staff also
received kudos for their tireless
effort in helping to prepare stu-
dents for and administering the


FCAT. We are proud of our
students and staff. We encour-
age family and community to
come out and support our
school. Parent Involvement is
very important to our students,
our school, and our communi-
ty. When parents are involved
with their children and school,
it motivates our children and
builds self-esteem. Thus we
experience happy and success-
ful children.
We have a Wall of Power at


CES. "P.O.W.E.R." means
Positive Outcome With
Encouraging Reinforcement.
As the students improve, they
are rewarded.
If you would like to know
about this wall of Power, or
volunteer to work with students
and other activities and pro-
grams at school please feel free
to come to the school and visit
our parent resource center or
contact Mrs. McClendon at
663-4373.


EGHS Senior Work Force Workshop
a success

On Friday, March 28, 2008 in the Media Center at East
Gadsden High School, employees of the Work Force Plus
One-Stop center came and enlightened .students on possible
avenues they can take after high school. This event will be an
annual event to help better serve our students and their needs.
There are many services available to help students get a job
or complete their education at no cost to them. The programs
offered include but are not limited to leadership and job readi-
ness training, assistance in obtaining a GED, academic serv-
ices for tutoring and study skills, work experience activities,
career exploration, assistance in obtaining employment, guid-
ance counseling and mentoring, individual assessment, and a
plethora of other services and incentives for students. This
workshop was very beneficial to students because it helped to
prepare students for post high school endeavors by informing
them of other avenues they can take to achieve their goals in
life. Work Force Plus employees Debby Tharpe, Margaret
Murphy, Debra Dixon and Brenda Neel did an excellent job
informing students of their benefits of utilizing the services
offered by Work Force Plus.
