Half-cent tax
request likely

By ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
The Gadsden County Health
Council was back before the
Board of County Commissioners
Tuesday night to request
approval of a health plan for use
of the half-cent tax that will more
than likely appear on the Nov. 5
ballot. They received tentative
approval for the draft and will
allow for citizen input before the
final version is accepted.
The plan was defeated four
years ago when it was on the
ballot for the first time. And, if
the primary care program
recommended is to get off the
ground, voters are the ones to
approve it this fall.
Last month the BoCC asked the
Health Council to develop a

Gadsden Arts Center Executive
Director Tricia Collins is taking
her warmhearted hue and heading
north.
Hired May 1, 2006, Collins
became the third executive
director of the non-profit gallery.
After much debate, she decided
last week to take a position
offered by the Thomasville
Cultural Center, where she will
begin her duties as director June
2.
"I love it there at Gadsden Arts
Center - it's the best place of its
kind," Collins said Monday. "It's
very difficult to leave. It's been an
extremely rewarding position."


'It's very difficult to leave.
It's been an extremely
rewarding position.'
Tricia Collins, Executive Director' of
the Gadsden Arts Center

Originally from Tallahassee,
Collins spent 22 years in New
York as a curator and a gallery
owner.
Gadsden Arts Center Board of
Directors member Michael
O'Halloran said he had mixed
feelings about her leaving.
"It's a two-edged sword," said
O'Halloran, who' was president of
the board of directors when
Collins was hired. "I'm happy for
her ... but we're losing someone
who I think was really valuable to


the center."
Gadsden ICounty Public
Information ,Officer Jon Brown
said Collins is an. asset to the
community.
Brown worked with Collins on
several community outreach
projects, including '6ne' vwhich
brought an international artist to
the area.
"I think she was a jewel in
relation to the arts community and
corporate development as a
whole," he said.
"She brought .oMne, wonderful
ideas and talent, to6 Gadsden
County -she's just ver creative
and wanted'-to. reach out to the
community. She is really
somebody who is going to be
sorely missed."

Quincy looking at ways to make telecommunications profitable


By ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

This is the second in a two-part
series on Quincys
telecommunications department
If Quincy is going to stay in the
telecommunications business there
are a few things a consultant said
they can do to make it work.
There are three options the city can
take. First, the city can develop a
method to partnership or outsource,
they can get out of the
telecommunications business, or they
can move toward making
telecommunications profitable.
If outsourcing is the answer, they
must make the operation of the office
and the maintenance of equipment a
priority. That's so, according to
consultants, the out of partnering
would be attractive the those who
would look at the telecommunication
with an eye toward partnering with
the city or taking on part of the
business. The most viable process,
for several commissioners, is to
move toward profitability.
The city has been advised to
develop a marketing plan. To do this,
they must gather 'data and redefine
goals. The staff must put together
relevant information about the true
financial situation.
Once thesis done, the financial
status must be analyzed critically to
determine the current situation and
determine what must be done to
reach the financial goals.
"This could include analyzing your
assets, liabilities, cash flow, etc," said
William McCloud of Cantella & Co,,
Inc. Atlanta.


Judy Bentley, consultant with
ICON Broadband technologies said
the city must assess its internal needs
from utility efficiencies to public
safety. In short, they must use their
own products. She said the city must
also look at the customers they have
in the city and cater to the frustrations
of their citizens in order to attract
them to becoming
telecommunications customers.
"Your citizens are frustrated
because of the rising cost in cable
prices and poor customer service,
there is no local provider office for
telephone service, customers want
choices, there is little or no
competition and customers want
choices and the area is limited to dial
up for internet service, to $40 to $50
price for high speed and business
rates are even higher," said Bentley.

The next most important
component is to have stakeholders
play a pivotal role.
"Your stakeholders have to be your
anchor customers such as key
employers, local businesses, the
school district, county leaders, county


Eye


Care located at


leaders, and your Chamber of
Commerce. These are the important
people who are going to keep your
telecommunications going.
Everyone living and working in
Quincy is a stakeholder in the
community's future," she said.


323 West


Street in Chattahoochee, Florida,


will close as of April 30, 2008. Patients may

retrieve their records by calling 800-467-1393.


The city must determine the
feasibility by first assessing the
market , then determine the costs and
develop a sound and reasonable
penetration solution.
Finally, Bentley advised that the
city must build a plan of achievable.

TAX PLAN from


voter approved indigent care
surtax for BoCC approval.
The plan calls public/private
partnerships pf healthcare
providers to address the
healthcare needs of uninsured and
underinsured residents. Services
to that population by the program
will be limited to primary care
services, a limited formulary of
medications and basic laboratory
services.
Health offices will be located in
Midway, Chattahoochee,
Greensboro, Havana, Gretna, and
Quincy. Each office will require a
co-payment of $5. Offices may be
only open two to three days per
seek, but the council's point is
that currently there is no primary
care in many areas of the county.
The primary care services will
include:

follow-up diagnostics, laboratory
,work, case management and x-
ray requests to patients at and


below 100 percent of the federal
level.
If approved, the program would
be made available to only
residents of Gadsden County.
While the council submitted a
comprehensive health care plan,
it was a draft and citizens who
want to make suggestion to the
plan can get a copy of it and
make their suggestions and
comments to the county manger
or Sherry VanLandginham,
chairperson of the health council.
At the conclusion of the
presentation, Commissioner
Doug Croley said he opposed
putting the measure on the ballot
in 2008.
"It's not balanced, it's asking a
lot of people to pay for a few. I
don't believe the timing could 'be
worse," he said, referring to the
rise in property taxes, high
gasoline prices and other costs
that have risen for citizens.
"We're open to any suggestion.
This is a draft, it's not final. Any
citizen can say add this or delete


that," said council director
Maximo Martinez.
Commissioner Ed Dixon, who
supports putting the measure on
the ballot, said, "it (the health
care problem in the county) is not'
a crisis that is coming, it's here
and it has been here for years and
it's getting worse," he said.
EMS Director Brian Beasely
said his department makes
between 30-35 trips to
Tallahassee hospitals every 24
hours and that these trips cost
about $800 each. Life flight takes
about 30 patients per month at an
average cost of $9,000 per trip.
"That's $24,000 each day (for
ambulance) $270,000 (for life
flight) and a lot of our citizens
can't pay this or they don't have
insurance to pay it. We're
spending the money," said
Commissioner Brenda Holt, who
also supports putting it back on
the ballot.
"We have to look at saving
people, that's our job. I took an
oath to take care of people," Holt

Contemplation



Teens, tweens need summer

supervision


In a few weeks school will be out for the
summer.
Each year about this time I start fielding
calls from mostly mothers, who want to
know what to do with their children during
the summer.
They want specifically, to know what
kind of camps and programs are available
to the 6 to 12 years. My advice is almost
always the same, check with the recreation
department, call the churches about
Vacation Bible School, and FAMU and
FSU usually have programs.
My worry is about the older children, the
tweens and the teens. Parents feel
somehow comfortable leaving them home
alone with stem warnings not to have
company over and don't touch the car.
These warning usually last a week at
most and often less.
Tweens and teens will do almost the
exact opposite of what they have bee
instructed to do by parents when no one is
looking. As a president of the Gadsden
County Domestic Violence and Sexual
Abuse task Force, I am privy to
information, not names, of girls who find
themselves in a tough situation.
That tough situation is rape. It's usually
with a young man they know and who has
come over invited.
This is generally what happens,
according to local Refuge House manager
Karnell Jones:
It begins with innocent conversations of
the telephone and it isn't long before the


young man knows that the girls is home
alone. He may invited himself over or she
may urge him to come over, afterall, her
mom won't be home until later in the
afternoon. The two may even be dating.
But what happens next can lead to
trouble.
A few innocent kisses and some heavy
petting usually starts it off. When the
female is ready to stop, the male isn't and
he tries to convince her that she wants to
go further with even more kisses and
petting.
Parents, please tell your teenage boys
that NO means just that, NO. It does not
matter how far things have gone or who
initiated it, when she says NO, the best
thing to do is stop.
Jones says she has seen way too many
tweens and teens end up in the emergency
room after 'they have been raped by a
boyfriend of an acquaintance. It is been
rape because they tried to stop the situation
from going any further.
But it doesn't stop there. When police
show up on the door step and ask t speak
to the young man, parents are often
perplexed and some blame the girl. He was
at her house, she invited him over, she
started it. Believe me, none of that matters,
if your son forced himself on her, it is rape.
He can go to jail for a long time.
I ask parents to talk with their girls and
boys about the consequences of what can
happen on a summer afternoon when no
one's at home.

It Pays To Play Golfi


I'm about to become rich. And boys, I
believe this one is fool proof! It is going to
take a few weeks to develop...but I've got
time.
I'm fixing to open up a tattoo removal
business. Wait! Don't start calling me yet!
I've got to order some 40 grit sandpaper and a
skin drafting adapter kit. I don't have all the
kinks worked out this morning. But listen,
with all the tattoos out there now, you just
know there's a crowd wanting to erase
something that seemed so "boss" when they
were nineteen...but it's not quite as intriguing
when they turn sixty-one.
As you might have already suspected, this is
way too brilliant an idea for me to come up
with on my own. I was playing golf last
week-end with Phil Smartt and Dwight
Belew. They both hit drives that split the
middle of the fairway. I pushed one into the
backyard of the house some idiot had placed
ridiculously close to the golf course. On the
next hole they bombed drives right down the
heart again.' I pulled mine into a drainage
pond that was so far left I didn't even see it
when I teed up. I was putting out for an
eleven on the third hole when Phil suggested,
"Kes, have you thought about other
hobbies?"
Dwight, almost too quickly, added, "There's
got to be something you can do besides golf."
We hadn't finished the front nine before
they came up with this tattoo removal thing. I
tell you, these guys are brilliant! I'm afraid
my golf game suffered as my mind drifted
back to Joyce Casey and Delbert Weatherly.
They were quite a couple when we were in
the tenth grade. You never saw one without
the other. One late August afternoon in 1963
Joyce slipped into the back room of Maxine's
Golden Coiffure's Beauty Salon and to the
amazement of her family and friends had
"Delbert" tattooed across the top of her left
shoulder. Maxine had set it in amongst some
roses or geraniums or some kind of flowers
and it truly didn't look half bad. Joyce
proudly showed it off to us on the first day
back at school our junior year.
Mr. and Mrs. Casey didn't share our
enthusiasm for the marking. I never did find
out if they were anti-tattoos or Delbert just
wasn't what they had in mind for a son-in-
law. It quickly became a moot point.
Sometime over the Thanksgiving holiday,
Joyce ran off with one of those Trull boys
that lived out on the Huntingdon highway.
Joyce could have been my first client. I
have sat and wondered for years how she
explained exactly who "Delbert" was to her
children and grandchildren.
Mary E. Pendleton had a black widow
tattooed on her neck. It was kinda creepy the
way it always appeared to be crawling out of
her blouse. David Mark said it was to keep
the boys from being too aggressive. Last I.
heard Mary E. was still single. I bet she'd pay
any price today to get that thing removed!
Do you see how big this can become?


If I'd been half as smart as Phil or Dwight, I
would have spent my evenings down at
Maxine's, encouraging my' friends to let her
draw Paul Newman's eyes, a golden sunset, a
favorite horse or the name of the current
partner on some part of their anatomy. By
day Maxine specialized in those blown up,
bouffant hair dos. But the hair dressing
business in our little town was pretty lax
except for Easter and homecoming week.
Maxine took up tattooing as a way to pick up
extra cash.
Uncle Harvey came home from the war
with a couple of hula dancers tattooed on his
forearm. He could make a fist and the girls
would dance. Aunt Flo, every year or so, had
Maxine add a little more grass to the skirt. If I
had just been in business back then I could
have eased Aunt Flo's mind in one easy,
simple operation. Well, I'm hoping, when I
get set up properly, that it will be easy and
simple and mostly painless.
We may start with 100 grit paper and move
to the heavy stuff if we can't get the dark blue
ink to turn loose. I haven't worked out all the
bugs yet. I do have an orbital, disc and belt
sander out in the garage. And it surely can't
take much sulfuric acid with each removal.
I'm figuring I can get going in the business
with little to no overhead.
It shouldn't take much advertisement. There
are so many tattoos out there today---they
can't all be wanted! When the word gets out,
I bet people who dated Penelope for years but
married Mary Ann will come flocking in. I'll
see ladies that once were enamored with the
circus who now like snow covered mountains
and seagulls. There will be sailors who
passed through Singapore that forgot they
were married. A good looking tattoo done in
1971 on a petite model may have "rambled"
a tad witi the addition of thirty-five years and
seventy pounds. After we've been in the
business for a day or two I will be able to
offer alterations and make-overs.
We aim to make a pretty good living just
working with retired NBA players.
I figure we can franchise this thing in a few
months. We'll get Wal-mart to put us in there
between the eye care center and the
pharmacy. We'll set up custom vans and go to
people's homes. ESPN and the Home
Shopping Network will come 'and interview
us'. Our business cards will say, "Let us give
you a clean slate". Or maybe, "New girl
friend, NO PROBLEM". Or my personal
favorite, "Tattoos Tattooed...while you wait".
I naturally have to let 'Dwight and Phil in on
this deal. I figure once we get to rolling, there
will be plenty of money to go around. So if
you are thinking about a tattoo, go ahead! If
you discover in a few years "it is not you",
don't worry or fret, come to see us.
I'm telling you, this is fool proof...
Respectfully,
Kes

The making of a mom


A couple of nights ago, after
successfully completing my son's
supper-bath-bedtime story routine I
had settled into bed and lingered on the
edge of sleep.
"Mom?"
I squinted at the 5-year-old face
inches from mine.
"Mom? Mom. Mom. Mom. Mom.
MOM." *
No way. We had both had a long day.
"Mom? Are you awake?" he queried
earnestly.
"No," I said.
He pried one'of my eyes open.
"You are awake," he said reasonably,
"or you wouldn't have talked. And
your eyes are open."
"Eye," I corrected. "One eye is open.
Please close it."
"Let's play," he countered, bringing
me a toy truck.
To be fair, it was one of his best toy
trucks.
Then again, he could have driven a
corvette through the living room at that
hour and elicited only a slightly more
spirited response.
I finally got him to go to bed, I laid
back down and got a really sound five
minutes of sleep - well, that's what it
felt like - and as I drifted off, I
wondered, for the 17 millionth time in
recent years, "Mom, how did you DO
it?"
I was the first of four children my
mother gave life to, and in her eyes, at
least, I was perfect.
Well, there were a few imperfect
moments.
Nope, not going to elaborate.
She established early on a balance
between "Yes you can" and "No you
can't."
I remember watching "Sesame
Street" while she ironed clothes, the
pre-kindergarten years, snacking on
saltines and cheese while she hummed.
She was - is - a nurse, had early in
her career worked at Boston's Joslin
Clinic, a cutting-edge diabetes
treatment and research center.
And that's why, when I was 5 or so,
she took me to the pediatrician and

explained that she believed I had type
1 diabetes because of the symptoms I
was exhibiting.
A quick check confirmed her
diagnosis. The doctor took care to
explain that I would require daily
insulin injections, that I couldn't drink
cokes or have ice cream and that
exercise was a must.
I was good with the exercise, we only
had sweet treats on occasion and I
could even see coming to terms with
that.
Shots? That I gave myself? Not
gonna happen, I told him in typical 5-
year-old fashion.
My son had chicken pox recently and
squirmed at the application of calamine
lotion.
I cannot imagine talking him into
taking shots, or the worry about his
future a diagnosis like that would
bring. Now that he has passed the age
at which I was diagnosed, it's highly
unlikely he will develop diabetes, at
least type 1.
My mother took the prescription the
doctor gave her for syringes and
insulin to the pharmacy, filled it, and
we went home.
She showed me how to fill a syringe,
and we practiced injecting an orange.
Comparatively speaking, small
needles like the ones used for insulin
syringes slide through human skin
much more easily than orange skin.
Just an explanation-for the dozen or so
needles I bent giving the whole
injection process a dry run.
I sat poised for my first shot, needle
hovering inches from my thigh.
"Yes, you can," my mother said
easily, and that was that.
I could not have, without her steady
assurance.
She is a remarkable woman for many
reasons, and even at my brattiest,
sullen moments I realized that.

Researcher:

As gas prices

climb,

employee

productivity

plummets



TALLAHASSEE, Fla. --
Rising gas prices are affecting
more than the family budget.
More pain at the pump results
in. more employee stress on
the job, says Wayne
Hochwarter, the Jim Moran
Professor of Management at
Florida State University's
College of Business.
"People concerned with the
effects of gas prices were
significantly less attentive on
the job, less excited about
going to work, less passionate
and conscientiousness and
more tense," Hochwarter said.
"These people also reported
more 'blues' on the job.
Employees were simply
unable to detach themselves
from the stress caused by
escalating gas prices as they
walked through the doors at
work."
Hochwarter gleaned the
information' by surveying
more than 800 full-time
employees this spring when
gas prices hovered at about
$3.50 per gallon. All of the
people surveyed work in a
wide range of occupations,
primarily in the southeastern
United States. All drove
personal transportation tos
work and had an average
commute of 15 miles each
way.
Survey respondents said gas
prices were foremost on their
mind, including a disgruntled
factory worker who wrote, "I
spend more time at work
trying to figure out what I
need to give up to keep gas in
my tank than thinking about
how to do my job."
Hochwarter's research will
be submitted for publication
later this summer. Among his
findings:

* 52 percent have
reconsidered taking vacations
or other recreational activities;
* 45 percent have had to cut
back on debt-reduction
payments, such as credit card
payments;
* Nearly 30 percent
considered the consequences
of going without basics
including food, clothing and
medicine;
* 45 percent report that the
escalating gas prices have
"caused them to fall behind
financially";
* 39 percent agreed with the
statement "Gas prices have
decreased my standard of
living"; and
.* About 33 percent -- or one
in three -- said they would quit
their job for a comparable one
nearer to home.
Hochwarter's discussions
with employees confirm the
study's results. Many
employees report that gas
prices rank as the No. 1 water-
cooler discussion topic, ahead
of family, sports or work, he
said. He found little difference
in responses among different
ages, gender, work tenure and
occupations.
"Several employees said
they simply could not escape
the media onslaught of bad
news regarding the future of
gas prices, and many reported
their financial futures were
looking bleaker and bleaker,"
Hochwarter said.
As gas prices rise, so does
the stress. Consider the words
of Sandy, a medical records


clerk: "The more it'goes up,
the more behind I get. If gas
goes up to $5 or $6 a gallon, I
just don't know what I'll do."

Sunday afternoon Sheriff
Morris Young stood by and
watched the Florida Highway
Patrol do their jobs at a fatal acci-
dent that claimed the lives of three
people. Two others were badly
injured and had already been
transported to Tallahassee
Memorial Hospital.
Barely 48 hours earlier he had

done the same thing at a fatality
near Little River, east of Quincy.
"I'm concerned," he said
Tuesday morning, "we have to do
something too curtail these traffic
fatalities. I don't want to see a
repeat of the year we had a record
number of fatalities."
All of this weekend's deaths
were young adults, except for a
one-year-old passenger. Rescuers
did not know the small child was
in the car until they extracted the
body of one of the men who was
pinned in the car.
"They were 22, 23, and 27
years old, basically~in the prime of
their lives. If we lose our young
people'to senseless accidents, we
are putting our future in jeopardy,"

Young said.
His immediate plans are to
meet with other law enforcement
officers, including. the Florida
Highway Patrol, to come up with
an education strategy.
"My feeling is that you can't
ever put too much information out
there, Young people need to be
told over and over sometimes for
the information sinks in. They feel
nothing can happen to them, they
feel invincible," he said.
Young is willing to make him-
self and other members of his staff
available to talk with organiza-
tions, classes, churches, or anyone
who wants to help him get his
message to the people who most
need it, the young.
With summer just around the
corner, his concern has only
heightened.
"There's a lot a of activity
among the young during sum-
mers. They go out more and they
just tend to drive faster and some
of them are more reckless. It's my
job to try to help them.stay alive,"
he said.

A team of Gadsden County

from a teacher recruiting trip to
the Philippines with a broadened
perspective but no new employ-

The school district has
looked to the Philippines for two


or three years now to fill vacant

While the group that went
pinpointed eight viable candi-

"Local teachers or teachers
from Gadsden County have
been our mainstay and I'm so
grateful for that. We couldn't
make it without them," James
said. "However, we don't pro-
duce enough local teachers to
fulfill all of our needs."
Philippines officials sent
James a letter several years ago
extending an offer to fully fund
a recruitment trip for Gadsden
County school district adminis-
trators.
"That offer was too good to


refuse," James said. "They have
an abundance of highly-quali-
fied teachers who are certified in
their areas of instruction."
Bonnie Wood, Gadsden
County Schools assistant super-
intendent for business and
finance, said the trip is a win-
win situation for the school dis-
trict.
"No cost at all is borne by the
district," she said. "There is zero
expenditure from the School
Board."
The teacher shortage that's
effected the state for years has
also impacted Gadsden County.
James said often teachers who


are not originally from Gadsden
County move on to other posi-
tions over the summer.
"Teachers from Gadsden
County stay," he said. "Often
teachers from other areas tend to
leave, and that leaves a teaching
void."
James said the teachers iden-
tified as viable candidates may
yet get a job offer from Gadsden
County depending on several
factors including the district's
attrition rate.
"Because of the budget short-
fall, our team couldn't commit
to any," he said. "But we're still
hopeful."

It took a rare form of cancer
to unleash the monster within J.
Michael Swinden.
Once it was out, it dominat-
ed' most of his thoughts.
Swinden, 55, is a former
Tallahassee resident. His sister,
Laurie Rigg, lives in Havana;
his mother, Anne Swinden, and
sister, Beth Swisher, still live in
Tallahassee.
The former Miami-Dade
police officer and marine
patrolman moved to South
Carolina in 1986.
It was there that he was
diagnosed with multiple myelo-
ma, a rare form of leukemia.
"I was diagnosed July 13,.
2001," he said. "I think there
was something in the
chemotherapy that jump-started
my brain."
Prior to his diagnosis, treat-
ment and subsequent remission,
Swinden had never been inter-
ested in writing, he said.
His children's book, "Sirgen
and Katheren: A Dragon's Love
Story" was published ;ih'1
February by Pleasant* Word
Books, a division of Winepress
Publishing Group.
"It's a children's book with a
Christian theme that God loves
all the creations he made, even


The book follows the adven-
tures of Sirgen the dragon and
Katheren, a young orphan.
The idea for the book arose
during a church fundraiser two
years ago, when Swinden enter-
tained children with a story of a
dragon that destroyed villages
then napped on top of the
wreckage.
"I teach Sunday school and
started telling stories. This one
got out of hand - it became an
obsession," he said.
Georgia Lyon Fromon, then
13, illustrated the book.
"It worked out beautifully,"
'S'ihnde i said o6f hr 'illuftra-
tions. "Kids just related to the'
dragon she drew."
His sister said she plans to
donate copies of the book to
local schools and public
libraries.


"I think the book is really
phenomenal," Rigg said. "It
was an eye-opener for me. I
think through the experience of
having multiple myeloma, my
brother found a way to release
his talents. Out of that has come
this book."
Swinden's career history
includes stints as a construction
worker, radio broadcaster, air-
port security manager, private
investigator and chemical plant
shift manager.
He now drives a truck for a
living, which gives him time to
mull the characters he created
in his first book and where they
will go from here.
"I'm working on two more
books," he said. "I will contin-
ue with the same characters for
a trilogy."
He deals daily with the
threat of cancer returning but is
focused now on writing and
spending time with his wife,
Jill.
"I promised her 10 years,
and I'm going to keep my
promise," he said. "But I was
told after going into remission
the !chaicbr. will likely come
back in six to eight years."

Florida veterans gain new tool


for information, education


- By LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor

Florida veterans now have
several easily accessible ways
to find jobs, training, health-
care options, benefit informa-
tion and education.
Friday, Florida's Great
Northwest announced it had
awarded to Opportunity
Florida a $102,800 grant to
promote the organization's new
MyFloridaMilitary.com web-
site in the Northwest Florida
region and throughout the
country.
The grant was funded by
Florida's Great Northwest
Florida WIRED (Workforce
Innovation in Regional
Economic Development) ini-
tiative.
The site was launched in
partnership with Opportunity
Florida, a regional economic
development organization, and
all five of Northwest Florida's
Workforce boards.
"The rollout of the website

ing commitment to providing
resources that will enable vet-
erans along with their families
to successfully transition back
into the workforce.
Additionally, it's a great oppor-
tunity for employers to select
from an expanded pool of
skilled candidates, known for
their dedication," said
Kimberly Moore, executive
director of the Workforce Plus
board serving Gadsden,
Lawson and Wakulla counties.
According to statistics pro-
vided by the Florida
Department of Veterans
Affairs, there are an estimated
3,894 veterans living in
Gadsden County as of
September 2007.
"Military separations repre-
sent a quality and technologi-
cally savvy workforce that is in
high demand by companies in
Northwest Florida.
MyFloridaMilitary.com pro-
vides an innovative mechanism
to facilitate connecting this
potential workforce to the
high-wage, high-skill employ-
ment opportunities in the area,"
said Al Wenstrand, president of
Florida's Great Northwest.
"Members of the military
come into the civilian work-
force with a multitude of high-
ly technical and valuable skills.
We want to ensure they remain
in the area to enhance the qual-
ity of our workforce," added
Gary Clark, Opportunity
Florida board chairman. "And
besides that, we owe them.
This site is just one small way
of showing our appreciation of
all they have done."
The website provides tools
for those transitioning from the


military and seeking employ-
ment.
It features a secure message
board that allows both employ-
ers and prospective employees
to communicate directly while
protecting their respective
identities until such a time dis-
closure is agreed upon by both
parties.
The site also provides for-
matted resumes, form letters
and links to many state and
federal agency job listings.
Courtney Heidelberg, public

Florida Department of

MyFloridaMilitary.com is wel-

veterans returning to Florida
after deployment and upon
leaving military service.

"Any type 'of outreach that
helps veterans get a job or
acquire services is great,"
Heidelberg said. "They've
done so much for us to defend
our freedom."

Lawson: Legislature treated Gadsden well in 2008 session


By ALICE DU PONT

When the dust settled and
the 2008 Legislature packed up
and went home, Gadsden

according to Sen. Al Lawson.
Here are the 2008-2009
funded projects for Gadsden

This year's budget also
included $25 million dollars for
the Small County Resurfacing
Assistance Program (SCRAP)
and $43 million dollars for the
Small County Outreach
Program (SCOP).
Both projects are designed
to help small counties with
their road construction and


resurfacing needs.
According to a press release
issued by Sen Lawson's office,
he also championed the effort
to put $10 million dollars in the
budget for fiscally constrained
counties, such as Gadsden, to
help offset the cost of imple-
menting Amendment 1, the
property tax cut approved by
voters in the last election.
Small counties also received
$9 million for consolidated
Solid Waste Management
Grants to help support their
waste tire, recycling, and gen-
eral solid waste management


programs.
"One of the major disap-
points I have this year is the
fact that there were no pay rais-
es for state workers for two
years running," said Sen.
Lawson.
Lawson's office said he
worked hard , along with the
rest of the delegation, to mini-
mize layoffs in corrections and
other critical areas in state gov-
ernment.
Also, state workers will not
receive an increase in their
health insurance premium and
drug co-payments this year.

When the Florida Legislature
ended its 2008 regular session
May 2, several education bills
strengthening screening require-
ments for public and private
teachers passed.

mechanism for communities to
create "Children's Zones" using
the Harlem Children's Zone as a
model.
The Harlem's Children Zone
is a non-profit, community-
based organization geared
toward enhancing the lives of
children and families in some of
New York's most devastated
neighborhoods. Below is a list
of education bills that passed
and died in the process.

announced he and his staff will host
a Meet and Greet event for parents
and fans this Friday at 6pm at the
school following practice.

NOTHING STAYS THE SAME
When I got to the Times Tuesday
morning I was informed that General
Manager Eddie Ledbetter was going


back to his Georgia hometown.
Thus, it will be another Publisher
or General Manager to work for..
Just sitting down and trying to figure
out how many different people have
had the job of General Manager or
Publisher since I started writing for
the Times in 1969. 1 count at least
eight.
I think there are more but I would!
have to take the time to research it. Il
do know J. Love Hutchinson was the,
first and until a replacement is!
named for Eddie he'll be the last.
So far, I've been lucky, I guess,
,because I've gotten along with all of,
them.
Eddie. it's been nice working for;
you. Good luck, and God bless.

We best keep on talking'
about the Bream and
Shellcracker beds now and we
mite later talk about how one
man baits his hook to ketch the
Talapia, but Bream first. It has
been a steady flow of Bream,
Crackers and Stumpknockers
this week and there was a few
Warmouth throwed in. Most of
the week it- was Crickets,
Wigglers and Pond Worms.
Some folks was able to fish a
hundred Crickets and 2 boxes
of Wigglers by noon, while
others chose to wait til 3pm to
git on the water with the same
amount of bait until dusk dark.
Most everyone did real good
on the beds even with the wind


at 90 to nuthin.
I had a strait hi-way Friday
goin the same way I was goin.
I was at 55 mph and I was jist a
bit faster than the clouds so I
slowed to 45 and we stayed
together. That is a strong wind.
Not fittin to fish in, but some
did.
The man that has ben taken
a lot of Talapia says he drills
tiny holes in Dog Food pellets
or Fish Pellets, then stick them
on the hook. He says, near the
beds it is a killer-diller.
The Lake City Bass Busters
fished out of Wingate's on
Friday, Saterday and Sunday til
noon and the team of Chops
and J.D. Coody won the event


with a total of 39.65 lbs. and
Big Fish at 7.26 lbs. by Coody.
No one completely blanked out
the whole 3 fishen periods,.20
folks fished.
The Valdosta Club fished
Sunday. Ed Dean won their
outing with 7 lbs. and he had
Big Fish at 3.11 lbs.

TCC Softball wins NJCAA Gulf District Championship


AUBURNDALE, Fla. (May 4,
2008) - Call 'em Drama Queens.
Call 'em the Comeback Kids. Call
'em the Cardiac Eagles. All of the
above apply to the 2008
Tallahassee Community College
softball team. Now, following a
postseason run for the ages, you
can also call the 2008 Eagles
NJCAA Gulf District Champions.
Down to its last three outs and
trailing Pensacola Junior College,
6-2, TCC scored four seventh-
inning runs to send Sunday's
NJCAA Gulf District
Championship Game to .extra
innings. With the game still knot-
ted at six-all, Laura Meaut's RBI
single in the top of the eleventh
scored Heather Mauldin with what
proved to be the game-winning
run as TCC defeated Pensacola, 7-
6, to claim the title and a berth in
the NJCAA Division I Fast Pitch
Championships.
TCC later fell to NJCAA No.
1/FCCAA No. 1 Santa Fe
Community College, winners of
the NJCAA Atlantic District
Championship, 8-4, for the overall
FCCAA title.
Having already claimed the
championship that mattered most,
the loss to Santa Fe. did little to
temper the emotions of TCC head
coach Patti Townsend.
"They're amazing," said
Townsend of her 12-player roster.
"I've never seen anything like it -
the heart, the determination, the


will power - I've never seen a
team work so closely together."
TCC won the FCCAA and
NJCAA Championships while
playing in the NJCAA's slow pitch
softball division in 1994. Prior to
Sunday, however, the Eagles' best
finish during their NJCAA Fast
Pitch softball era came in 2002,
when they brought home a run-
ners-up trophy.
The Eagles, whose season was
on the brink of extinction repeat-
edly during the final two days of
play at the Auburndale Softball
Complex, won five consecutive
elimination games, culminating
with Sunday's doubleheader
sweep of Pensacola...
TCC won Sunday's first game,
7-4, to force a second and decisive
game against its Panhandle
Conference rival.
Left with no alternative but to
win, the Eagles did just that. Not
once, not twice but five times.
After losing to Hillsborough
Community College in Friday's
second game, TCC knew it would
face elimination each time it took
the field. The Eagles thrived on the
pressure, a fact that surprised
Townsend little, if any.
"They were confident,"
Townsend noted. "They wanted to
win, and they had it in their minds
that they would not lose."
TCC squeezed out a 1-0 victo-
ry over Polk Community College
in its first game on Saturday. The


Eagles followed that with a pair of
wins in their last at-bat.
First, the Eagles ousted defend-
ing NJCAA champion and arch
rival Chipola College with a 3-2,
10-inning victory. TCC then
avenged its earlier loss to
Hillsborough with a 6-5, 9-inning
triumph. In both games, the Eagles
scored a pair of runs in the bottom
of the seventh to force extra
innings.
With momentum on the
Eagles' side, Townsend hoped that
would offset the fact that
Pensacola only took the field once
on Saturday and had played but
three games through the tourna-
ment's first two days.
"They (the players) could sense
that it (the championship) was
within their grasp," added
Townsend, who was named
NJCAA Gulf District Coach of the
Year. "There was a calm confi-
dence about them."
TCC's gutsy performance cer-
tainly backed up her logic.
After winning Sunday's first
game in businesslike fashion, the
Eagles drew first blood in the win-
ner-take-all finale.
A two-run, third-inning homer
by Mary Helen Tyler put the
Eagles ahead 2-0. That lead, how-
ever, was short-lived.
A TCC error allowed leadoff
batter Whitney Ward to reach safe-
ly in the Pirates' half of the third.
Pensacola capitalized on the mis-


cue, sending ten batters to the plate
in the inning against the Eagles'
Amanda Reyes and Morgan
O'Keefe. Pensacola roughed up
the duo for six runs on five hits,
including a two-run double by
Daniela DeOliviera.
TCC threatened in each of the
next three innings but Pensacola's
Tyler Easterling worked herself
out of trouble each time, forcing
the Eagles to strand a pair of run-
ners in each frame. Three outs
from the championship, Pensacola
called upon Julianne Beaugh, the
losing pitcher in game one. Before
Beaugh recorded an out, however,
the Eagles had tied the game.
After Mauldin and Tyler start-
ed the rally with consecutive sin-
gles, Meaut brought everyone
home when she drilled a three-run
home run, cutting the Pirates' lead
to 7-6. Meaut went 3-for-6 with
four RBI in game two and was one
of seven players named to the
NJCAA Gulf District All-
Tournament Team.
Alayshia Jarrell continued the
rally, reaching on an error. After a
wild pitch sent courtesy runner
Briana Leverett into scoring posi-
tion, O'Keefe hit a ground rule
double to tie the game at six.
TCC went down relatively
easy over the next three innings -
only Hilary Carver reached base,
singling with two outs in the tenth.
Pensacola, meanwhile, came ago-
nizingly close to winning the


game on two separate occasions.
Reyes, who reentered the game
with two outs in the sixth, pitched
out of a bases-loaded, one-out jam
in the eighth. An inning later, two
walks and a sacrifice bunt put run-
ners on second and third with one
out. Pensacola again failed to
deliver as Reyes got consecutive
fly outs to extend the Eagles' sea-
son.
Reyes (16-15) worked 32.2
innings during the three-day tour-
nament, earning five of TCC's six
victories and a spot on both the
NJCAA Gulf District and FCCAA
All-Tournament teams. Her final
two innings were arguably her
best of the entire weekend.
She sat the Pirates down in
order in both the tenth and
eleventh, inducing Krystan
Mahowald into a game-ending
groundout that set off a jubilant
celebration, both on the field and
in the stands. Reyes' efforts were
one of many that left Townsend
searching for words.
"We've beep through a lot this
season, but we finally put it all
together," Townsend said. "All of
the hard work paid off."
The game two excitement was
made possible by a solid outing in
Sunday's first contest'.
After falling behind 2-0, the
Eagles plated three runs in the bot-
tom of the third.
A pair of walks sandwiched
around an infield single loaded the


bases. Mauldin and Tyler collected
back-to-back singles to tie the
game. Meaut's sacrifice fly
brought Becky Smith home to
give TCC a 3-2 lead.
Pensacola tied the game with a
run in the top of the fourth before
the Eagles' bats came alive again;
Smith broke the 3-3 tie with a
single, scoring Carver. Later in the
inning, TCC loaded the bases for
Tyler, who delivered a bases-clear-
ing double.
Tyler, one of five players to
earn a spot on both the NJCAA
Gulf District and FCCAA All-
Tournament teams, went 5-for-9 ii
Sunday's games against
Pensacola, scoring twice and driv-
ing in six runs
O'Keefe pitched the final three
innings of game one to earn her
second save of the tournament.
"Getting the first win (over
Pensacola) was huge," said
Townsend.
Joining Meaut, Reyes and
Tyler on the NJCAA Gulf District
All-Tournament team were
Mauldin, O'Keefe, Smith and
Lela Land.
Tyler, Mauldin, Smith,
O'Keefe and Reyes were selected
to the FCCAA All-Tournament
team.
TCC now awaits.a seeding ip
the 16-team NJCAA' Division I
Fast Pitch Championships, which
takes place in Plant City, Fla., Ma$
15-17.

The Gadsden County Times * May 8, 2008 9


CHP to invest in college nursing programs


Capital Health Plan (CHP)
announced it will invest over the
next five years a total of $1.5
million in nursing education


programs at Florida State
University, Florida A&M
University and Tallahassee
Community College. The initia-


tive is aimed at alleviating a
growing nursing shortage in this
area and throughout Florida.
Demand for new nurses in


Florida is expected to grow by
nearly one quarter or more than
36,000 new jobs by 2014.
According to a 2007 study by
the Florida Center for Nursing,
40 percent of nurses in Florida
are 51 or older. Many will retire
in the next 10 years, while the
state's aging population will
continue to require a growing
number of nurses. For years the
medical community has tried to
fill this gap by searching around
the country and the world to
recruit nurses for this area. At
the same time nursing schools
have had to turn away qualified
applicants because of capacity
limits.
CHP's investments are
intended to improve that situa-
tion for both patients and area
residents who want to pursue
nursing.
Capital Health Plan is proud
to invest in nursing education,
said Dr. Nancy Van Vessem,
CHP's chief medical officer,
speaking at a news conference
held on National Nurses Day.


"Today's nursing students are
the professionals who will care
for CHP members and the com-
munity for years to come."
The grants will total
$100,000 a year for five years
for each school. The State of
Florida might match 50 percent,
potentially increasing the total
investment to $2.25 million.
CHP's investment will help
reduce the shortage by making
nursing education more afford-
able and efficient. The funding
will increase the number of
nurses in Florida and, more
specifically, in the capital region
- Leon, Gadsden, Wakulla and
Jefferson counties - where CHP
provides care 1jor its members.
The money will impact each
nursing program differently. At
FSU, the funding will create a
12-month accelerated bachelor's
of science in nursing program
for students who have a bache-
lor's degree in another field and
have completed prerequisite
courses.
The program is the first of its


kind in the Big Bend area. It will
commence in the fall of 2009
with an initial class of 16 stu-
dents and will allow students to
gain a nursing degree in half the
usual time.
"Talk about a winning com-
bination," said FSU President
T.K. Wetherell. "With FSU's
longstanding success in educat-
ing nurses to meet the complex
and changing healthcare needs
of our society and Capital
Health Plan's investment in our
new . accelerated program,
everyone's needs, including the
patient's, will be met much more
quickly."
. At FAMU, CHP's investment
will create the Capital Health
Plan/Edwin Thorpe Endowed
Scholarship Fnnd, which will
provide scholarships for under-
graduate, upper-division stu-
dents who are graduates of high
schools in Leon, Gadsden,
Wakulla and Jefferson counties.
The scholarship will pay up to
full tuition for recipients for a
maximum of four semesters.


City re-organizes commission


By ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

Gerald "Andy" Gay is
Quincy's newest mayor. Gay
took the oath of office during
the annual re-organization meet-
ing last Thursday afternoon.
Gay was elected unanimously
after he was nominated by
Commissioner Finley Cook.
Minutes later Cook nominat-
ed Commissioner Derrick Elias
as Mayor Pro-Tem. He was also
elected unanimously.
"There is a lot to do and we
have to keep our sleeves rolled
up and put our feet on the gas
and move this city forward,"
Gay said.
Other commissioners said
they were happy that the com-
mission had retuned to the rota-


tions method of electing a
mayor. The City of Quincy oper-
ates under the strong city man-
ager form of government where
the manager handles the day-to-
day operations and the commis-
sioners set policy.
Several years ago the city
commission ignored the rotation
and began electing mayors with-
out regard to the rotation sys-
tem. Any commissioner will
eventually become mayor using
the rotation system.
Commissioner Sherrie Taylor
took the opportunity to
announce that she would tender
her resignation as a member of
the commission by June 6, 2008.
She has decided to make a bid
for a seat on the Board of
County Commission, District 2.
She said the Supervisor of


Elections informed her that she
may stay on the commission
until November 5 and she plans
remain in office until that time.
"I want to thank you for the
wealth of knowledge I have
gained from working with you.
gentlemen," she said.
Commissioner Finely Cook
also thanked his fellow commis-
sioners for a good year.
"We need to be working
harder and more productive.
Instead of complaining, let's
pull together," he said.
Former Keith Dowdell
thanked his fellow commission-
ers for "the opportunity to sit in
the hot seat."
"I'm glad the rotation is
back and is working. We are a
unique city and we're very spe-
cial," Dowdell said.-

nents include MediKids, Florida Healthy

tions to the exemption. A violation of the
exemption is a misdemeanor of the second
degree. The bill reenacts the public record

In Loving Memory of
Mrs. Willie Ruth Williams
"Gensie"
May 2007 - May 2008
These memories grow more meaningful with
every passing year. Your memories are more
precious and more beautifid, more treasured
,,': more dear. Of all these treasured memo-
IIthat you love has brought are the many
C -Iistmases, birthdays, and family reunions.,
F., ' o on e gave more happiness or did more
,,. for others, You were understanding,
hul. wise, selfless and loving. Of all the lov-
ig mothers, the dearest one was you. God
needed an angel in heaven, so he called my dear mother above. But
she's only as far away as my heart and she lives as before in my love.
We will forever cherish your precious memories of little things we've
done because it makes the very darkest days bright and happy. Your
memory gives us strength and courage when we are in need
Lovingly Remembered,
S John Albert, Jacque, Wee John, Harry, Rashad and Jamal


In Loving Memory of
Miss Lela Mae Hall
Sunrise: May 14, 1940-Sunset: June 9, 2004
' Iu left here suddenly, this comes with
1 cep regret. It brings a day we will never
torget. You did say "Hello" buy you didn't
v-, "Goodbye". Your end was sudden, it
nukes us all cry, but "grandma"(mama),
our love for you will never die. You were
gone before we knew it, and only God
knows why. If we could have a life time
wish a dream that would come true. We'll
pray to God with all our hearts for yesterday and you.
Forever loving and missing you,
Vacia, Satara, Rudolph, Randolph, John, Bonnie, Sabrina, Christopher,

AARP Florida: Florida seniors to be hard hit by 2008 budget


'"As Florida copes with the worst
state budget crisis in" 40 years,
Florndians 50+ will not be able to
escape the pain from a tough 2008
legislative session and a shrinking
state budget. State lawmakers also
failed a major test on property
insurance reform. But state leaders
avoided some actions that could
have seriously harmed the state's
older residents and darkened the
state's future, AARP Florida State
Director Lori Parham said Friday.
"In a year in which Floridians are
facing long odds, the 2008
legislative session too often fell
short," Parham said as lawmakers
adjourned. "We recognize that the
Florida Legislature managed to.
soften the worst impacts of a
disastrous fiscal situation, given
their decision not to raise
additional resources. Also,
legislators avoided what could
have been serious errors, ranging
from imposing rigid state revenue
caps to totally abolishing nursing
home care standards for Florida's
most frail residents. But even this
session's successes were weak."


Lawmakers managed to avoid the
worst'cuts targeting the Medically
Needy program, which provides
care for Floridians who lack health
coverage but have slightly too
many assets to qualify for
Medicaid. By drawing on state
reserves, lawmakers agreed to
provide care for 19,500 Floridians
in that program and also saved a
program that helps another 24,000
frail elders and disabled individuals
age 65 or older not eligible for
Medicare to get services in their
homes and communities.
Lawmakers waited until the last
days of the session to address a
looming crisis in property
insurance reform - then fell short
for Florida consumers. Working
closely with state Chief Financial
Officer Alex Sink, Sen. Bill Posey,
R-Rockledge, and Sen. Ron
Reagan, R-Sarasota, had proposed
needed reforms of the Florida
Hurricane Catastrophe Fund to
encourage greater private
investment in reinsurance. The
reforms were intended to reduce
the impact and severity of


insurance assessments 'ond
Floridians' home and auto
insurance policies in the wake of
the next major Florida hurricane.
Top lawmakers failed to bring the
bill to a final vote.
"The state's leaders have missed
an important opportunity to protect
Floridians and our state's economic
security," Parham said. AARP had
strongly supported the proposal.
"We can only hope this failure
doesn't come back to haunt
Floridians as a result of Florida's
2008 hurricane season."
Among issues important to
AARP, legislators:
- Abandoned a proposal to
completely eliminate state
standards for certified nursing care
for Florida nursing home residents.
However, in a late-session move,
legislators relaxed nursing care
standards for one year and chopped
more than $163 million in
Medicaid nursing home
reimbursements from the state
budget. The cuts will make it more
difficult for Florida nursing homes
to provide quality care to frail,


vulneriele residents.',
Created tools to help
uninsured Floridians shop for
higher-quality, lower-cost care. The
legislation, by Sen. Charles Dean,
R-Inverness and Rep. Juan Zapata,
R-Miami, requires hospitals to
provide uninsured consumers
good-faith estimates for the costs
of non-emergency procedures. It
also strengthens requirements that
consumers be provided "clear,
understandable information about
the quality of health care deliered
by providers.
- Did not expand a troubled
Medicaid reform pilot project into
Miami-Dade County. The
inspector general for the state
Agency for. Health Care
Administration has found that the
program includes serious flaws and
that there is no clear evidence that
the program saves taxpayer dollars,
as advocates claimed it would.
Under a provision sponsored by
Rep. Zapata and Sen. Durrell
Peaden, R-Okaloosa, and
supported by AARP, the state may
convene workgroups to propose


alternatives for health and long-
term care reforms, including
Medicaid reforms.
- Enacted tougher penalties
for unscrupulous insurance agents
and financial advisors who targeted
older Floridians for questionable
investment scams. The legislation,
sponsored by Sen. Mike Bennett,
R-Tampa, and Rep. Clay Ford, R-
Pensacola, developed in
consultation with CFO Sink (a
Democrat), particularly focused on
"twisting" and "churning," sales
practices aimed at convincing older
investors to shift resources from
sound investments into annuities
with high fees and unreasonable
maturity dates. AARP is pleased
this bill passed but would have
preferred that violators face a
felony, as the initial bill proposed,
rather than a misdemeanor if
convicted of this crime.
-. .Enacted a good first step
toward protection for consumers
facing foreclosure on their homes
by approving legislation by Sen.
Mike Fasano, R-New Port Richey,
and Rep. Ford providing some


foreclosure protections. Fasano
and Ford worked closely on the bill
with Florida Attorney General Bill
McCollum (R), whose office
helped develop the bill.

James J. Anderson retires from IBEW after 26 years


After more than 26 years of
service .as an International
Representative of the IBEW; on
April 1, 2008, my enjoyable and
challenging career will end. The
start of my career took place in
Quincy, Florida, in the late 70's at
a plant called Southern Wires,
where I was a machine operator
and at the same time I attended
Florida A&M University as a full
time student. Many years of
being over worked, underpaid
and discriminated against lead me
to call IBEW for union
representation. Michael Lucas
who was the Director of
Organizing at that time, assigned
International Representatives
Leon Wilkerson, Charles Davis
and John Dickerson to assist in
our organizing efforts and


Southern Wires was unionized.
Through that effort I was
elected president and also served
as the Chief Steward for 4 years.
During that time I was also
elected president of the A Phillip
Randolph Institute for the State of
Florida.
In 1981, I was appointed as an
International Representative for
the IBEW, where I helped
organize new members into the
IBEW from coast to coast, at that
time, we were one million
strong. The organizing
campaigns that stick in my mind
are AT&T in Orlando, Florida,
Holmes & Narver, Morrison &
Knudsen in Huntsville, Alabama,
MCR &NCA Inc. in Burlington,
North Carolina and Avondale
Shipyard I had the opportunity to

there, he planned to travel to
Boston to visit friends. It would be
a glorious experience.
The world's largest ship
moved gracefully across the glassy
sea, and Lawrence realized how
lucky he was to be part of its maid-
en voyage. As they crossed 'the
Atlantic Ocean, moving ever closer
to the New World, Lawrence spent
time in the library writing letters to
old friends, walking the decks in
the brisk spring air, and making
new friends.


Sunday dawned clear and
crisp; while the ocean was calm
and smooth. During the afternoon,
Lawrence visited the library. He
noted the ship's log showed they
had traveled 1,408 miles since
Thursday, and expected to arrive in
New York City on Tuesday night.
Among his new friends was a
Church of England clergyman,
Reverend Mr. Carter, with whom he
had spent many an enjoyable hour
discussing the merits of their
respective universities; Oxford and
Cambridge. His new friend was
also in the library, and he men-
tioned his disappointment at the
lack of a Sunday evening religious
service. Would Lawrence ask the
purser, with whom he was
acquainted, if Carter might lead an
evening service in the saloon?
Lawrence was pleased to accom-
modate him, and the purser quickly


obliged, making the necessary
arrangements.
After dinner, Lawrence and
approximately one hundred other
passengers joined Mr. Carter in the
saloon, where they sang hymns
until about ten o'clock. Afterwards,
Lawrence and the Carters chatted
over a cup of coffee, then Lawrence
retired to his cabin.
At a quarter past eleven,
Lawrence climbed into his bunk,
deciding to read for a little while
before turning off the light. He
noticed the ship's vibration had
increased, and assumed they were
traveling faster.
A little less than half an hour
later, the noise and vibration sud-
denly stopped. He didn't know it,
. but the liner on which Lawrence
felt so fortunate to be traveling, the
Titanic, had just struck an iceberg.
Like a knife through butter, the ice
opened a gash along the starboard
side of the now doomed liner.

Several decks below
Lawrence's cabin, as the ship's side
peeled open, a wall of water roared
into the engine room as the stokers
desperately tried to escape. It was
11:40 PM on April 14,1912. Less than
three hours later, the Titanic began
its final voyage; more than two miles
to the bottom of the Atlantic.
Lawrence Beeseley was one
of 705 survivors plucked from the
sea by the Carpathia, the first res-
cue vessel to arrive in the area.
Another 1,503 people weren't so
lucky. They died. Find out more
about the Titanic, its builders, pas-

- THE 1VEB JOURNEY"


The Loss of the S.S. Titanic:
Its Story and Its Lessons
Written by Lawrence Beesley, this book was'
published in 1912. As is stated in the preface,
the American publisher Houghton Mifflin
approached him to write the book, and he
felt: "it would probably be a wise thing to
write a history of the Titanic disaster as cor-
rectly as possible."
