City of Quincy

takes steps to

hire attorney
/

By ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
The City of Quincy will get a step closer to
hiring a permanent attorney Monday. During
Tuesday night's regular meeting, City Manager
Bill Bogan held up three unopened proposals
from firms that want the job.
Commissioners plan to interview each of the
three firms beginning at 4 p.m. during a special
workshop. If necessary they will go into
special session and select one of the firms,
following the workshfiop.
Commissioners agreed that hiring a firm
Monday is not set in stone. In fact, there was a
short discussion that if none of the three were
satisfactory, they could re-open the Request for
Proposals.
The former city attorney, Jack McLean,
resigned in late February after seven years on
the job. McLean's salary had been an issue
with several commissioners. They felt that
McLean's salary was too high for a city of
Quincy's size.
There was no mention of a salary ceiling
commissioners will be looking for in the new
law firm.
In other "matters, commissioners decided to
authorize staff to negotiate with TCBA Watson
Rice as the city's auditing firm. The firm,
which has been the city's auditor of the past
five year was one of among four others vying
for to audit the city's books.
"After review of the audit firms proposals
and oral presentations, staff determined that
two firms TCBA Watson Rice and Thomas
Howell Ferguson distinguished, themselves
above the two other firms. Three of the firms
indicated that they would assign eight to ten
people to services the audit for the City of
Quincy. Although costs are included in the
analysis, (for the benefit of commissioners) the
rankings and numbers were performed without
a cost consideration," stated .the staff's
summary to commissioners.
"Based on our review of. the proposals and
oral interviews conducted with each of the
bidders, it is the recommendation of the
selection committee (Interim Finance Director
Theresa Moore, Purchasing Agent Eugene
Sutton, and City Manager Bill Bogan) to select
TCBA Watson Rice to'provide audit services
for the City. Since this is being submitted

hospital

By ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
The Gadsden County Hospital
Board met May 7 to hear the
latest plan to re-open the hospital.
The rural emergency hospital is a
relatively new concept and board
members hope it will work here.
The concept was presented by
Tallahassee Memorial
Administrator Corey. Fleming
and Gadsden health consultant
Joe Sharp.
A rural emergency hospital
focuses on providing. major
services required to raise the
health status of a rural
community and strives to operate
most cost effectively.

Dealership hits homerun for youth baseball league


By LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor
Even though Sam McDaniel has
moved on, Plattner's Chevrolet Buick
in Quincy is continuing its effort to
help fund the Quincy Recreation
Department's Dixie Youth Baseball
Program.
On Thursday, Suzanne Rodriguez,


the dealership's new parts manager,
presented Quincy Recreation
Department Director Reginald
Cunningham with a check for $500 on
behalf of Chevrolet.
The dealership is raising money for
the department's Dixie Youth Baseball
program by selling $5 raffle tickets.
The prize? A Chevy Tahoe, to be given
away at the end of the season.


This was McDaniel's line of
thinking: Chevrolet has money
available for community projects, the
Quincy Recreation Department's Dixie
Youth Program could use a helping
hand, why not put the two together?
So that's what he did.
McDaniels contacted .the corporate
office about getting funding and was
given a $500 check to give to the


baseball program. McDaniels, who has
taken a job in another city, said in an
earlier interview that he saw the
fundraiser as a way to give back to
Gadsden County.
"It helps our community,". he said.
"My kids used to play for the program.

Rowan named law enforcement officer of the year


By ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
Sgt. Matt Rowan of the Gadsden
County Sheriff's office has been
named the Law Enforcement Officer.
The announcement was made Tuesday
during a luncheon sponsored by the
Rotary International, Lions
International, Pilot Club of Quincy,
and Kiwanis International.
Finalists for the 2008 honor were:
Officer Benjamin Johnson of the
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation, Sgt. Robert Mixon of
the Quincy Police Department, Lt.
Barry Moore of the Chattahoochee
Police Department, and Rowan.
Rowan, who is currently assigned to
the GCSO violent crimes division, was
praised for his work ethic and
experience. He moved through the
ranks of law enforcement from
uniformed officer to investigator.


"During his time in the drug unit,
Sgt. Rowan worked many hours to
curb the illegal narcotics and
dangerous drug activity that plagues
the county. Sgt. Rowan also worked
many cases in an undercover capacity
infiltrating drug trafficking in the
county," according to the narrative that
accompanied his nomination.
"This is a well deserving officer. He
has worked hard for our department
and this county. He has a wealth of
experience and, on a personal note, I
am very proud of him and this honor
he really deserves," said Sheriff
Morris Young.
Sgt. Rowan often investigates
homicides and sex crimes against
adults and children. In February of this
year Sgt. Rowan was the lead
investigator with the during the
county's first homicide. It was one of
the department's most heinous crimes
in many years involving the


strangulation
of a 19-year- -
old whose
body was
burned inside
a vehicle.
Rowan
worked almost
non-stop for
several days
until an arrest
was made a
few days later.
He also
provided
comfort to the
family of the
victim.

astounding gains on the test:
Greensboro Elementary boosted
its 2007 score from 49 percent to
89 percent, a 40-percent increase.
George Munroe Elementary
bumped its score by 38 percent
over last year's.
And St. Johns Elementary saw a
37 increase over last year's score.
Gretna Elementary had 95
percent of its fourth-graders score
at a level three or above on the
test, and increase of 24 percent
over last year's scores.
Gadsden Elementary Magnet
School also scored 24 percent
higher than last year.
Carter-Parramore Academy
students scored 25 percent higher
than last year.
"The first thing we did was
select a good, good team who
studied the data over the
summer," Greensboro Elementary
Principal Ella Ponder said. "We
had very good results."


Correction

In last week's edition, a head-
line stating "Health Dept. seeks
OK for tax plan" was incorrect.
It is not the health department
but the Gadsden Counit Health
Council that asked tfor the OK
to present the ta\ plan The
Times regrets the error.


So did George Munroe
Elementary.
Principal Ida Walker said staff
and students at her school
succeeded by taking the school
motto, "We are going to strive for
perfection but we'll settle for
excellence," to heart.
"We expect this to be a prelude
to greatness," said Gadsden
County Schools Public
Information Officer Shaia
Beckwith-James. "We have five
elementary schools, one
alternative school and a high
school that made history."
Students who scored a perfect
six on the writing portion of the
FCAT overwhelmingly credited
teachers and parents with helping
them succeed.
"My teacher is a very good
writing teacher," Havana Middle
School student Tamara Knight
said.
East Gadsden student Nakeisha
Thomas said her teacher helped
her understand how to put her
thoughts and feelings on paper.


"I put my feelings into my
writing - Mrs. (Patricia) Moses
taught me how to express my
feelings in writing," she said.
Fellow EGHS student Jenai
Hicks said she enjoys writing,
and keeps a journal at home.
"I did what I always do - I've
always practiced writing," she
said. "It's fun."
Both Gretna Elementary fourth-
grader Carlos Saracay and
Havana Elementary fourth-grader
Ephraim Serrant had pretty
specific ideas about how to
prepare for the FCAT.
"I went to sleep before 9
o'clock. I prayed at night I would
pass. I had a good breakfast. And
when they passed the test out, I
prayed," Ephraim said.
His parents' response to a
perfect reading score?
"They said, 'We're going to
have to celebrate,'" he said with a
smile.
There was even mention of a
new dirt bike, Ephraim said.
. But it wasn't all work - there


FIRST BIRTHDAYS are printed .at no charge,

are times he enjoys putting pencil
to paper, he said.
"I enjoy narratives, when you're
writing a story - it's like a movie
in your mind," he said.
Carlos, too, followed the FCAT
prep steps suggested by teachers.
He has come to savor the
experience of story weaving.
"If you put your attention to it -
you just have to. use your head to
get ideas," he said. "It was easy.
In my story, friends came to my
house and played games. I wrote
that when they came, we played
magic tricks."
Students in grades four, eight
and 10 take the writing portion of
the FCAT.
At Crossroads Academy, 100
percent of middle school students
tested scored at or abcge a level
three, which is considered an
acceptable level.
At East Gadsden, 79 percent of
students tested score at of above a
level three while 65 percent of
students tested at West Gadsden
scored at or above level three.

Mother worked for hugs


I called Mom at first light on Mother's,
day.
The phone didn't ring one-half of one
time. "Hello." She knew her favorite son
would call early. Her voice might not be as
strong as it once was but age couldn't hide
the cheerfulness, the goodness, the love.....
"Mom, you can tell me now, I was the
best son you had. Wasn't I?"
"You were a very sweet boy."
"Come on now, Mom, I KNOW I was
better than Leon!"
"Leon was very sweet, too."
I have been trying to get her to "agree"
that I was the best son she had for years
now. It's hard as the dickens to get a mom
to show favoritism! Even when the other
two aren't around!
"Mom, I never rode a horse into the
senior prom."
"That was Nicky Joe's fault. Leon was
trying to keep him from getting into
trouble." Moms don't ever give up. That
late night gallop took place in
1960.....Mother might not remember all
the facts of the evening. But she did
remember clearly that Leon was only
"involved" to help a friend.
"I never swapped, switched and mixed
the license plates on every car parked on
the town square."
"Leon was in active child. Besides, it
really brought some old friends together as
they fellowshipped while Aaron Pinson
untangled the mess. And it was kind of
funny, and very creative, when you think
about it."
Both of us were laughing now. She
wasn't about to give in. Sometimes
growing up I thought Leon was definitely
her favorite. But, as I grew toward
adulthood, I realized Leon was just a little
more high maintenance than most. Mother
had a knack of being where she was needed
the most.
"Well, 4 was the easiest to raise. You
would have to agree with that."
"You were no trouble."
"Then you finally admit I WAS the
easiest to raise!"
"All three of you were a blessing."
She was enjoying not giving me what I
wanted! She bemoans her 88 years and
allows that she has forgotten a detail or two
and a name here and there but I'm not so
sure......
I changed tactics. "Mom, you will agree
that I married the best girl of the group."
"You married a sweetheart for sure.'"
"I knew you would agree-". ....
"You all married wonderful girls. Paula
has been so good to me. Charlotte was so
special. I just got the sweetest note from
Jan....."
We were laughing again. And on this
Mother's Day I was down to the point
where I wanted to thank her. She wasn't
about to name her "best" child. But I could
come up with the all-time best mother in a


New York second! There's no contest!
The laughter died and I couldn't find my
voice. I thought of the tumble on that
gravel road down by George Sexton's
house. Mom was picking those little shards
. out of my knees and palms.....and the tears
were running down her face. It didn't make
no sense to me back then. How could my
pain cause her tears? And you won't
believe the nights she sat up putting drops
in mine or Leon's or David's ear. Listen,
she would warm them so they wouldn't be
cold when they hit your skin. She could
kiss a swollen spot on you forehead and
make it better. She could rub a wart off the
back of your ring finger in no time. She'd
stuff us full of cod liver oil to help fend off
the croup, diphtheria, malaria, Whooping
cough and rattlesnake bites.
She refereed football games and boxing
matches......and one free for all melee that
broke out down at the swimming pool and
rolled to the house. She helped us set up a
backstop for the baseball games. She
would serve lemonade or kool aid right
before we passed out. And after everyone
went home and Leon and David went
inside to wash up, she would pick up a
glove and throw a few pnore with me. She
didn't get her arm up high enough and she
caught like a girl, but she allowed me to be
on the field for a few more precious
minutes.
She was a room mother and a den mother
* and a Sunday School mother and a cooking
mother and a Rook player if we didn't have
nobody else. She gave lassoing lessons.
She was pretty good with a whip. It took
her weeks to show me how to. make that
top spin like David could do it. She never
kept your marbles. And when she would
come down to the elementary school for
the annual Thanksgiving class play she
would be the prettiest mom in the room.
It's no wonder every kid in town hung
out at our house!
When the high school scene got
confusing with trying to make a team or
date a girl or pass English Mom knew
when to be there with just the right word of
advice. But more importantly, she knew
when to NOT be there......
She wrote the book on kindness and
thoughtfulness and forgiveness. You
naturally learned from her even if you
weren't too kind or thoughtful or forgiving
at times. I'm where I am today because of
her.
"Mom.....uh....Mom.....uh...."
"Son, I know. I thank you, and your
brothers, for all you have done for me."
I hung up and sat there in silence. The
tears slid across my face. She is still the
best! You think you kinda understand when
you are growing up in the middle of
it......but it takes years to truly realize the
breadth and depth of that type of love,
devotion and unselfishness.
"No Mom, thank you!"


Adult specialty clinics scarce


By Daniel J. Vance

Nylah Syed of Ontario, New York, has
had about 20 surgeries in her 21 years of
life. She has spina bifida, the nation's most
common permanently disabling birth
defect, which affects about 70,000
Americans. Spina bifida occurs in the
womb when a child's spinal cord doesn't
completely close, usually causing a level of
paralysis, bowel and bladder issues, and
hydrocephalus.
For many of those 21 years, Nylah
received medical. care at an exceptional
pediatric spina bifida clinic in Rochester,
New York. However, after turning 21,
because of her age, she was no longer
eligible to receive care there. She had to
find an adult clinic, and so far has not
found one with a well-coordinated team

"Recently, I had a foray into the world of
adult spina bifida medicine," said 46-year-
old Denise Syed, Nylah's mother, in a
telephone interview.
Here was the situation: Not long ago, her
daughter's stomach was distended, and she
was in a great deal of pain. "It turned out
her shunt (which fed excess brain fluid to'
her stomach cavity) had stopped working,"
said Denise.
She needed a new shunt. Because Nylah

was now officially an adult, Denise couldn't
sign off on the surgery. Nylah had to make
that decision herself.

� Said Denise, "She was afraid. She'd never
had the responsibility of consenting. This
particular surgery of moving the shunt to
(empty into) the heart was risky, and scary,
especially given that her brother had a heart
transplant only five years ago."
As stated, Nylah, because of her age, had
lost her pediatric clinic and neurosurgeon,
and the adult neurosurgeon available didn't
have as much experience installing shunts.
Fortunately for Nylah, her old pediatric
surgeon did the surgery as a favor.
For people with complicated disabilities
requiring constant attention, the U.S. has
many specialty pediatric clinics that have
collaborating doctors working together to
solve problems. But there are now only a
handful of these specialty clinics for adults,
and as we all know, children become
adults.
In Nylah's case, Rochester recently started
an adult spina bifiIa clinic. But it has only
one doctor rather than a well-coordinated
team of specialists.
Said Denise, "Kids like Nylah who have
many medical needs are living longer, and
the medical community isn't prepared to
deal with their health issues. Nylah isn't the
only one."

Editor;


Why would the former Mayor of Quincy
Sherrie Taylor think that the citizens of
Gadsden County would elect her as a county
commissidnser when she leaves the City of
Quincy in such turmoil and disarray. What
would make her think the citizens of Gadsden
County would vote for her to represent them?
Let me assure you that we are more informed
than she thinks we are. We the citizens know
how government works. Let the record speak
for itself, since becoming a City
Commissioner have you, Miss Taylor been
certified as a Commissioner? How much
money have you brought to the City of
Quincy? During your tenure the City of
Quincy has failed to pay its electric bill and
has frequently borrowed money to pay its
bills. What have you done to solve the
delinquency problems in the City? How
many times has the City of Quincy had to
borrow money just to stay in business since
you have been in office? It seems to me that
the problem was not with the City of Quincy
but with its elected officials. I sincerely feel
sorry for those residents of the city of Quincy
who fell promises during your City campaign.
I do understand that no one is perfect and that
we do the best with the hand that we are dealt,
but when your hand was dealt you were not
even i. the room and the citizens of Quincy
are tle ones that suffered. Our County
Commissionsers may not be perfect, but those
Commissioners are the best horses we have
had t$ride in over Four Hundred Years. In
closing I am saying the Citizens of Gadsden
County.: must not fall for the old shell game
again.'

By. Congressman Allen Boyd

When the war in Iraq was first
proposed by the Bush
Administration nearly six years
ago, those affiliated with the
Administration and the Defense
Department, including President
Bush, former Defense Secretary
Donald Rumsfeld, and former
Deputy Secretary of Defense Paul
Wolfowitz, emphasized that the
Iraqis had the means to finance
the reconstruction of their own
country. More recently, at a
speech in June of 2005, President
Bush said, "As the Iraqis stand up,
we will stand down."
After five years and over half a
trillion dollars spent in. Iraq, I
believe that it is time for the Iraqi
government to step forward to
meet more of its security and
reconstruction expenses. It is
clear to me that doing so should
be a source of pride for the Iraqis,
and it should be a point of
insistence for the United States.
Recently, I renewed efforts that
would require the Iraqi,
government to take' more
responsibility for its security and
reconstruction costs by
introducing the Iraq Shared
Investment Act. This legislation
calls on the Iraqi government to
utilize its expected $12 billion
budget surplus and estimated $56
billion oil revenue stream to help
pay for its own security and
reconstruction. Under the Iraq
Shared Investment Act, funding
provided by the U.S. to Iraq for
training and equipping of Iraq
- Security -Forces would be -treatedi
as a loan, rather than a grant, to be
repaid to the American taxpayers.
The Iraq Shared Investment Act
also creates a shared pot of money
for the Iraqi and U.S.
governments to contribute funding
for mutually agreed upon
reconstruction projects. If the
Iraqi government does not
contribute funding to this trust
fund, then the money provided by
the U.S. government for Iraq
reconstruction costs would be
used to pay down the nearly $10
trillion.U.S. national debt.
Our own country's economic
troubles are no secret, and the
billions we have spent in Iraq,


largely borrowed
countries like


from foreign
China, have


contributed to our lagging
economy and have worsened the
fiscal health of our country. We
must look for ways that will allow
the. Iraqi government to pick up
more of the tab for .their own
security and reconstruction costs.
The Iraq Shared Investment Act is
legislation that will do just that by
making the Iraqi government less
financially dependent on the U.S.
In the coming weeks, I will be
working with my colleagues on
the House Appropriations Defense
Subcommittee to push for the
inclusion of the Iraq Share.
Investment Act in the emergency
supplemental bill that Congress is
drafting. While we may not b,
able to change our policy in Iraq
under the current Administration,
I believe that this common sense
loan proposal is something that
both sides of the aisle can support.
The Iraq Shared Investment Act
is simply about responsibility and
commitment.
The Iraqis must take
responsibility for their country
and demonstrate a commitment to
their own success.
The Iraqi government has a
burgeoning budget surplus and a
surging oil income. It just makes
sense for the Iraqis to bear a larger
share of the costs of securing and
rebuilding their country. I
encourage the President to uphold
the statement he made in 2005-
now is the time for the Iraqi
people to stand up, so that the
American taxpayers can start to
stand down.


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

Making a difference at Stewart Street Elementary School


The faculty and staff of SSES
would like to recognize two out-
standing teachers, Ms. Patricia
Potter and Mr. Jeffery Starks,
for the remarkable difference
they have made with our stu-
dents and in our school this year.
Ms. Potter is a second grade
teacher who sets high expecta-
tions for her students and pro-
vides challenging experiences in
order for them to reach their
goals: Her students led the
school in reading AR books and
they continue to make strides in
reading. Ms. Potter is currently


serving as grade-level chairper-
son and a member of our CIM
Leadership team, as well as our
PTA and School Advisory
Council. She frequently donates
resources, time and energy in an
effort to assist in the overall
improvement of our school.
Mr. Starks is our creative and
energetic physical education
teacher. He organizes special
programs, lessons and events
geared toward creating an
awareness of healthy activities
for boys and girls. He makes
learning fun! In addition, he


donates many hours of his time
and energy to creating a safe
environment in which our stu-
dents can learn and play. He is a
great team player who does not
hesitate to participate in after
hour school-related events and
activities in order to offer his
assistance and input.
Ms. Shalinda Hudson is the
staff member who received the
Making a Diffeience award in
our school for the month of
April. Ms. Hudson was recently
appointed office manager for the
school and currently serves in a


dual capacity in order to meet
budget restraints. She is a very
outgoing, creative and effective
member of our staff. She pitch-
es in whenever necessary in
order to get the job done. We
are extremely proud of the
recipients of our "Making a
Difference" award for the month
of April.
Stewart Street Elementary
teachers Patricia Potter,
Jeffery Starks and Shalinda
Hudson won the school's

"Let's go." She says. "Go " here'?"
I say. "Out of this place." She replies.
That's pretty much the conversa-
tion I have had with my mother these
past sLx months.
She'll be 96 in August and has
mostly, lived with my sister. Pat. in
Panama City the last 20 y.ears. except
for the times I would take her off Pats
hands to give Pat a break.
She fell and broke her hip in
December, her left one this time.
Tliree years ago she broke her right
one, but recovered pretty well follow-
ing surgery and therapy. It's not been
that easy this time. And her dementia
slowly gets worse.
She tries to get in her walker, but is
limited to her wheel chair and bed in


the St. Andrews Nursing Home in
Panama City.
She doesn't like it one bit. Though.
she seems to be adjusting some.
At best my mother is difficult.

doesn't make it easy when either of us
visit her, which I try to do at least
twice a week. Pat. visits more often,
takes care of her clothe,. and her busi-
ness that needs attending to.
A conversation with her starts and
ends with us getting her out of the
place, and she'll give you every rea-
son why. They don't feed her. they're
trying to poison her with the medicine

Personally. I think she'll get
stronger, she'll make it to her walker.
she'll try to follow us out with it one

We had a Mothers Day visit with

ate two big pieces of cake. some

What's on my mind now at
the Top-O-The-List is that when
you have lived 65 years, you
should be able to fish in any
state in the United States with-
out a license. Further, if you are
Native American, you should
also be able to fish like wise.
Now my second priority is
the wind. Lord knows, it has
blowed this week. 2 or 3 of
them days it would blow your


nose for you. Mother's Day was
a very windy day. The ladies
hair and hats were blowed
about. Mothers are so sweet, no
matter how they look.
Now the fishen, Bream and
Shellcracker was very good all
week. Many folks had limits of
both kinds and some had limits
of mixed stringers.
We have had some more
input into the "Talapia" thing. A
fisherman who does real well
with them says he uses the very
short Rapala, lite in color cast-
ing on 6 to 8 lb. line. It will run
about 1 foot under water as you


retrieve it. Same as a Beetle
Spin. You use a Gold Blade in
Bright Sunshine and Silver if
cloudy. Then if you are still
fishen with a pole, line and cork
use Wigglers. He says be sure to
rig up good cause the big
Talapia will keep your cork
under water for 15 minutes.
They are a tighten fish and very
good to eat. "
With the Politic's heaten up
now and one accuses the other
on the Democrat side and the
Republican trying to hold his
self ready to ensure any question
that mite come up. We now


come to the "Quote of the
Week". "Sometimes I wonder
wether the world is being run by
very smart people, who are put-
ting us on or by embicils who
really mean it." Mark Twvain
over 100 years ago.
The Pensacola Five Flags
Bass Club fished out ' of
Wingate's this weekend with
Wayne Lassiter taking first, Tom
Jorden taking second and Frank
Dodge taking third. Good to
have them. Rough day Sunday.
Tough on man and boat.

TCC earns No. 5 seed, opens with San Jacinto


TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (May
9, 2008) - The Tallahassee
Community College softball
team received the No. 5 seed in
the National Junior College
Athletic Association (NJCAA)
Division I Fast Pitch
Championships and will open
play against No. 12 seed San
Jacinto (Texas) College-South
at 11 a.m., Thursday, May 15 in
Plant City, Fla.
TCC-San Jac is one of a
quartet of games in Thursday's
opening session at Plant City
Stadium and the Randy L.
Larson Four-Plex.
The Eagles are guaranteed a
second game on Thursday,
against either No. 13 seed
Western Nebraska Community
College or No. 4 seed Wallace
State Community College-
Hanceville (Ala.).
A win against San Jacinto
will, send the Eagles into


Thursday's 8 p.m. game while
an opening-game loss would
place TCC in the loser's brack-
et and a 6 p.m. contest.
San Jacinto (37-15), the
NJCAA's Region 14/District L
Champions, is from Houston,
Texas.
The Coyotes punched their
ticket to Plant City with an 8-4
victory over Galveston (Texas)
College on May 3.
The Eagles' seed in the 16-
team field can be attributed to
their stellar play at last week-
end's Florida Community
College Activities Association
(FCCAA) Gulf District
Tournament, as well as a diffi-
cult schedule before, during and
after the 20-game Panhandle
Conference slate.
TCC has faced seven teams
ranked in the NJCAA's Final
regular season poll - No. 1
Santa Fe Community College,


No. 2 Chattanooga State (Tenn.)
Technical Community College,
No. 3 Manatee Community
College, No. 9 Miami Dade
College, No. 12 Yavapai
(Arizona) College, No. 13
Chipola College and No. 16
Central Arizona College.
The Eagles also played a
pair of games against NJCAA
Division II No. I Phoenix
College, winners of the last four
NJCAA Division II champi-
onships.
TCC finished 7-15 in its
games against ranked teams but
two of the victories came during
last weekend's run to the Gulf
District Championship.
On May 2, the Eagles rallied
from a 5-0 deficit to defeat
Manatee, 12-9, in the first game
of the Gulf District
Tournament.
One day later, TCC elimi-
nated defending national cham-


pipn Chipola, 3-2 in 10 innings.
The Eagles will be joined in
Plant City by three teams who
appeared on their 2008 sched-
ule - Chattanooga State,
Yavapai and Santa Fe, the tour-
nament's No. 1 seed.
TCC and Santa Fe, winners
of the FCCAA's Atlantic
District, met. in the FCCAA
Championship Game on May 4,
a game the Saints won, 8-4.
Santa Fe also swept a double-
header from TCC in the season
opener on January 31.
Meanwhile, the Eagles split a
pair of February games with
Chattanooga State and lost a
pair to Yavapai during their
Spring Break swing through the
Grand Canyon State.
All of TCC's NJCAA
Division I.1 Fast Pitch
Championship games can be

Gretna Cinco de Mayo festival a popular choice


By LESLIE ROBERTS
Times News Editor

La Poderosa's first Cinco de
Mayo celebration in Gadsden
County drew nearly 1,500 par-
ticipants.
Hector Quezada, manager of
La Poderosa 1580 a.m. and one
of the festival's organizers, said
it was gratifying to see such a
good turnout - and support from
area residents.
"The whole community of
Gadsden County, including the
cities of Gretna and Quincy, the
sponsors - they provided the
things they promised us," he
said. "There were people who
came from Alabama, Georgia,
Jacksonville. Everything went
as planned. On behalf of the
radio station, I want to express
our appreciation for the whole
community on this festival."
Quezada and his partners
bought the Chattahoochee radio
station around three months ago
with plans to have a studio in
Quincy.
The May 4 festival at
Gretna's Industrial Park is what
Quezada hopes will be the first
of many.
"With the good Lord's help, I
hope we can do this again next
year at the same city in the same
location," he said. "The collabo-
ration on all of this from the
whole community and the
warmth that I felt particularly
from Gretna and Quincy was


overwhelm-
ing."
T h e
event was a
way to intro- ,
d u c e
Hispanic
culture to
others,
Quezada
said, while
having a lit-
tle fun at the . .
same time.
Five or
six bands
performed and vendors sold
food and other merchandise.
"Part of the cultural celebra-
tion of Cinco de Mayo is the
delicious food - enchiladas, pre-
pared by San Marcos Restaurant
in Sneads, tacos, floutas, que-
sadillas," Quezada said. "We
were also very impressed by the
behavior of participants."
There were 36 sponsors for
the event, including Budweiser,
Tri-Eagle Sales, Pepsi, Advance
Auto Parts, NetQuincy,
Mitsubishi of Tallahassee,
Saturn of Tallahassee, Toyota of
Thomasville and Mike's
Limousines.
"Personally, I want to thank
the Gretna Police Chief, Brian
Bess, the Quincy mayor, the
Sheriff's Office, the Bank of
America and all the city and
county authorities that came by
to say hello and to thank me,"
Quezada said.


HOSPITAL from page 1


major components of the rural
emergency hospital. The .
emergency room, which is a full-
service department operated 24
hours per day and seven days a
week. The department can handle
many of the patients currently
cared for at emergency rooms. An
ambulance would always be at
the rural emergency room to
transport patients to another
facility.
Fleming said that certain


patients, especially trauma
patients, would need to be
transported to TMH anyway.
2. Inpatient rooms would allow
patients to be comfortably
monitored to make sure the
patients can be observed by
trained medical professionals
without the cost of a routine
patient admission. This type of
monitoring can also include
intensive heart monitoring.
3. Diagnostic services can be


the hub for diagnostic procedures
in a rural county. The ease of
access will allow physicians to
.have tests performed on their
patients and receive results the
same day. This is a luxury not
usually afforded to rural
physicians. Having ease of access
allows workers of the county to
be treated quickly enabling them
to return to work increasing local
business productivity. A full
range of laboratory and radiology


services would be provided on
site through referral services.
Tests results would be provided
to physicians on a daily basis.
4. A specialty clinic will be built
into the facility to allow specialty
physicians from urban
communities to see patients on a
routine basis. The ability to bring
these specialty physicians to the
community allows local
physicians to send routine to
specialists on designated days as


opposed to trying to fit their
patients into the physician
schedule that resides in an urban
area. The ease of access also
allows for a greater level of
compliance since local rural
residents don't have to leave their-
community.
5. Rehabilitation services would
be provided at the facility for
both physical and occupational
therapist. Fleming said that rehab
service have become an integral


part of medicine through its
ability, during treatment sessions.
to limit the need for major
procedures such as knee and back
surgery. This enables quality care
to be performed without costly
procedures that can handicap
individual patients. This will be a
major program of the emergency
hospital.
The rural emergency model is
effective because the staff can
cover multiple areas.

The Gadsden County Times May 15, 2008 11

FILM from page 1


sense out- there that people are
apathetic about the vote and
that's definitely not the case in
Quincy," Pinder said Tuesday
from her New York office.
"People sometimes think their
vote won't make a difference,
that one vote won't count - in
Quincy it made the difference.
That margin was really small."
One of the 11 stories
prominently featured in the film
takes place in Quincy and follows
County Commissioner Brenda
Holt and Sheriff Morris Young.
Holt was one of many volunteers
working to keep a close eye on
the vote in 2004; Young was
running a campaign for county
sheriff against deputy sheriff Ed
Spooner.
Young's victory made him the
first black sheriff in Gadsden
County since Reconstruction. The
race was unexpectedly close,
causing a late-night suspenseful
ballot count in which Young
emerged as the winner by a
margin of 69 votes. One of the
reasons there were so many


watchful eyes on the 2004 voting
process is because in the 2000
election, an exceptionally high
percentage -12 percent - of votes
were deemed invalid due to
technicalities, an anomaly that
drew national attention.
"The tension was because of the
election in 2000," Holt said.
"People were so upset with each
other - this is a small town.
People have to live with each
other after an election."
Gadsden County Supervisor of
Elections Shirley Knight said the
recount in 2004 was a fairly
routine part of the electoral
process, particularly when the
vote was so close.
"It's normal - you always have
people question the results," she
said. "By law, if a person wins or
loses by one-half of one percent
of the vote for that race, you have
a recount. We started at about 1
p.m. the next day and finished at
about 5 p.m. As we were taking
the results off each tabulator,
each team was keeping the
votes."


For Young, election night was
the more memorable night of the
two.
"I was very excited. I felt like I
ran a good campaign and put
some issues out there for the
voters," he said Tuesday. "There
was a lot of pressure and a lot of
relief after the results were in.
And that same night I was ready
to go to work."
"Election Day" combines 11
stories all shot simultaneously on
Nov. 2, 2004 from dawn until
long past midnight.
The documentary follows
factory, workers, ex-felons,
harried moms, Native AMerican
activists and diligent poll
watches from South Dakota to
Florida, as they take the process
of democracy into their own
hands.
"Of,the 11 places in the film,
Quincy was always a major story
for us," Pinder said. "We felt like
it was an important story to tell."
For more information about the
movie, visit
www.electiondaythemovie.com.


In a scene from the documentary "Election Day," from the left, an attorney representing the
Republican party, attorney Lance Block, attorney Pat Woodward and former Gadsden County
Commissioner Sterling Watson examine vote tabulations during a recount of the 2004 election.
Seated in center is County Judge Stewart Parsons.


HONORED from page 1


performance and dedication to
duty reflects great credit upon
himself, his unit, and GCSO. We
at the sheriff's office are grateful
to have such a fine individual as
Sgt. Rowan to protect the public
and represent the agency " the
nomination letter stated.
Another nominee, Officer
Johnson of the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation
Commission, is a 14 year veteran
of the commission who served in
several Florida counties before
his -assignment to Gadsden
County.
His nominative narrative
described Johnson as proactive
and is often able to prevent future
violations by using an approach
to educate a potential violator as
opposed to writing a citation.
He is especially active in
fisheries and boating safety
enforcement. He is also an
instructor at the training academy
in high risk traffic stops and
tracking.
The Quincy Police


Department's nominee is Robert
Mixon. He joined QPD in 1999
and is currently a patrol shift
supervisor, traffic homicide
investigator, Spanish language
interpreter, and is a member of
the county's Gang Task Force.
Sgt. Mixson is a member of the
Florida Counsel on Crime and
Delinquency, Florida Sheriff's
Association, National Rifle
Association, and the Human
Rights Campaign Initiative.
"While wearing many hats, he
wrote 222 uniform traffic
citations and issued 103 traffic
warnings. He also made 41
physical criminal arrests while
supervising a patrol shift of three
police officers and other shift
activities," stated the nomination
narrative.
Chattahoochee Police Chief
Vann Pullen nominated Lt. Barry
Moore as the department's officer
of the year.
Moore, on his' own time,
became a FDLE certifies k_9
handler for drug detection in


addition to his administrative
duties.
"The consistency in carrying
out his k-9 duties have resulted in
numerous felony arrests, seizure
of illicit drugs and monies
forteited to the city," stated the
nomination letter.
Circuit Judge Thomas Bateman
was speaker for the luncheon.
"I was in law enforcement for a
number of years. I am'honored to
be here today and I applaud all of
the nominees," Bateman he said.
He spoke on the effect
legislative cuts in the 2008
session will have on local law
enforcement.
"There are limited funds. The
slice of the pie for the justice
department seven-tenths of one
percent," he said. Civil cases,
credit cases and contract cases
will be moved to the back-burner,
according to Bateman.
"When hard economic times
occur, crime goes up and more
thefts, foreclosures, and credit
defaults occur," he said.


Town Hall meeting set for May 27


Hospital costs are high


By ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

In order for the rural emergency
hospital to operate at a break
even or profitable level revenues
must play the most important
role.
In the plan presented by
Tallahassee Memorial Hospital,
revenue is projected from both
inpatient and outpatient sources.
The average reimbursement
from inpatient revenues will be
similar to Tallahassee Memorial
Hospital's reimbursement for like
services. Medicare and Medicaid
rates.
Other income will come from
outpatient revenue that include
diagnostic services (radiology
and laboratory) will have annual
accumulated charges of about $6
million (drawn from the 2004
report in gross revenue from
Gadsden Memorial Hospital).
Emergency room and
rehabilitation revenue are


included in outpatient revenue. .
The operating expenses,
according to the presentation, are
as follows:
*Salary and wages plus
benefits: employees will be hired
at the midlevel of the market
scale and benefits will equal 26
percent of gross pay.
*Professional fees for physician
services will be negotiated to
include 24-hour coverage of the
emergency room,' hospitalist and
inpatient beds.
*Supplies and drugs will utilize
group purchasing vendor (TMH).
*Depreciation expenses will be
determined.
*Rental and leases will be low
because a majority of the
equipment will be purchased
outright.
*Insurance is assumed to be
included under the provisions of
sovereign immunity. A $200,000
placeholder expense will be paid.
*License and taxes fees will be
consistent with current charges.


The model presented by TMH
is based on the following
statistical data:
Admission "will average two
observation patient admissions
per day.
The emergency room will have
12,000 total annual visits based
on the Gadsden County Urgent
care visits of approximately
6,000 per year and current rate of
the county's EMS transports.
Severe patients who will need
to be transported directly to
Tallahassee are also factored into
the projection.
Also, the number of diagnostic
tests based upon the average
number of tests per inpatient and
emergency room patients per day.
The model is still in the initial
discussion stages. It will have to
be determined whether the
county will use the current
hospital that will require
significant upgrades or build a
new facility at a cost of $12
million.


A Town Hall meeting with U.S. The academy is located on
Senator BillrNelson will be held r Highway 90 east across the street

May 9. 2008
City of Quincy
404 West Jefferson Street
Quincy. Florida 32351
(850) 627-7681
On or about May 28, 2008, the City of Quincy will submit a request to the Florida Department of
Community Affairs for the release of Community Development Block Grant funds under Title I of
the Housing and Community Development Act, as amended, to undertake a project to rehabilitate
(10) homes at a cost of 500,000 dollars.
The activities proposed are categorically excluded under HUD regulations at 24 CFR Part 58 from
National Environmental Policy Act requirements. An Environmental Review Record (ERR) that doc-
uments the environmental determinations for this project is on file at City of Quincy, 404 West
Jefferson Street, Quincy, Florida and may be examined or copied weekdays, 8 A.M. to 5 P.M.

PUBLIC COMMENTS
Any individual, group, or agency may submit written comments on the ElR to the City of Quincy,
Department of Building and Planning. All comments received by May 23 2008 will be considered
prior to the City of Quincy requesting a release of funds.

RELEASE OF FUNDS
The City of Quincy certifies to the Florida Department of Community Affairs that Keith Dowdell in
his capacity as Mayor consents to accept the jurisdiction of the Federal Courts if an action is brought
to enforce responsibilities in relation to the environmental review process and that these responsibil-
ities have been satisfied. The State's approval of the certification satisfies its responsibilities under
NEPA and related laws and authorities and allows the City of Quincy to use the Program funds.
OBJECTIONS TO RELEASE OF FUNDS
DCA will accept objections to its release of fund and the City of Quincy certification for a period of
fifteen days following the anticipated submission date only if they are on one of the following bases:
(a) the certification was not executed by the Certifying Officer of the City of Quincy, (b) the City of
Quincy has omitted a step or failed to make a decision or finding required by HUD regulations at 24
CFR part 58; (c) the grant recipient has committed funds or incurred costs not authorized by 24 CFR
Part 58 before approval of a release of funds by the State; or (d) another Federal agency acting pur-
suant to 40 CFR Part 1504 has submitted a written finding that the project is unsatisfactory from the
standpoint of environmental quality. Objections must be prepared and submitted in accordance with
the required procedures (24 CFR Part 58, Sec. 58.76) and shall be addressed to the Florida
Department of Community Affairs, CDBG Program, 2555 Shumard Oak Boulevard, Tallahassee,
Florida 32399-2100.

STATE OF FLORIDA
DEPARTMENT OF
ENVIRONMENTAL
PROTECTION PUBLIC
NOTICE OF INTENT TO
ISSUE FEDERALLY
ENFORCEABLE STATE
OPERATING PERMIT
DRAFT Permit No.:
0390038-005-AF
Gadsden County

The Department of
Environmental
Protection (Department)
gives notice of it's intent
to issue an air Federally-
Enforceable State


Operating Permit
(FESOP) to Quincy Joist
Company. A Maximum
Achievable Control
Technology (MACT)
determination was not
required. The applicant's
name and address are:
Quincy Joist Company,
520 South Virginia Street
Quincy FL 32351.
The permit is for opera-
tion of the Quincy Joist
facility that is currently
classified as a Major
Source under Title V. In
2007, the facility began


using water-based coat-
ings in their surface coat-
ing operations and will
continue to do so in the
future, thereby decreas-
ing actual VOC emis-
sions to less than the
Title V threshold of 100
tons per year. The facility
has therefore requested
a federally enforceable
synthetic limit to avoid
Title V thresholds. The
facility consists of a steel
joist manufacturing and a
coating operation. The
manufacturing and coat-
.ing operations are con-
tained in two large build-
ings. Each building con-
tains a steel storage
area, a fabricating opera-
tion (cutting, bending,
assembly, punching,
welding) and a coating
operation. There is no
pollution control equip-
ment and the facility can
emit up to 95.0 tons per
year of Volatile Organic
Compounds (VOC) and
up to 24.50 tons per year
of total Hazardous Air
Pollutants (HAP) with no
more than 9.50 tons per
year of any individual
HAP.
The Department will
issue the FESOP, in
accordance with the con-
ditions of the enclosed
DRAFT unless a
response received in
accordance with the fol-
lowing procedures
results in a different deci-
sion or significant
change of terms or con-
ditions.
The Department will
accept written comments
concerning the proposed
permit issuance action
for a period of fourteen
days from the date of
publication of "PUBLIC
NOTICE OF INTENT TO
ISSUE FEDERALLY
ENFORCEABLE STATE
OPERATING PERMIT."
Written comments
should be provided to the
Northwest District Office
at 160 Governmental
Center, Pensacola,
Florida 32502-5794. Any
written comments filed
shall be made available
for public inspection, If
written comments
received result in a sig-
nificant change in the
purposed agency action,
the Department shall
revise the proposed per-
mit and require, if appli-
cable, another Public
Notice.
The Department will
issue the permit with the
attached conditions
unless a timely petition
for an administrative
hearing is filed pursuant
to sections 120.569 and
120.57 F.S., before the
deadline for filing a peti-
tion. The procedures for
petitioning for a hearing
are set forth below.
A person whose sub-
stantial interests are
affected by the proposed
permitting decision may

trative proceeding (hear-
ing) under sections
120.569 and 120.57 of
the Florida Statues, The
petition must contain the
information set forth
below and must be filed
(received) in the Office of
General Counsel of the

sons other than those

under section 120.60(3)
of the Florida Statues
must be filed within four-
teen days of publication
of the public notice or
within fourteen days of
receipt of this notice of
intent, whichever occurs
first. Under section
120.60(3) =, however,
any person who asked
the Department for
notice of agency action
may file a petition within
fourteen days of receipt
of that notice, regardless
of the date of publication.
A petitioner shall mail a
copy of the"petition to the
applicant at the address
indicated above at the
time filing. The failure of
any person to file a peti-
tion within the appropri-
ate time period shall con-
stitute a waiver of that
person's right to request
an administrative deter-
mination (hearing) under
sections 120.569 and
120.57 F.S., or to inter-
vene in this proceeding
and participate as a party
to it. Any subsequent


intervention will be only
at the approval of the
presiding office upon the
filing of a motion in com-
pliance with rule 28-
106.205 of the Florida
Administrative Code.
A petition that disputes
the material facts on
which the Department's
action is based must
contain the following
information:

agency's file or identifica-'
tion number, if known;

cate;
(e) A concise statement
of the ultimate facts
alleged, as well as the
rules and statues which
entitle the petitioner to
relief; and
(f) A demand for relief.
A petition that does not
dispute tlre material facts
upon which the
Department's action is
based shall state that no
such facts are in dispute
and otherwise shall con-
tain the same informa-
tion as set forth above,
as required by rule 28-
106.301
.Because the administra-
tive hearing process is
designed to formulate
final agency action, the
filling of a petition means
that the Department's
final action may be differ-
ent from the position
taken by it in this notice.
Persons whose substan-
tial interest will be affect-
ed by any such final deci-
sion of the Department
on the application have
the right to petition to
become a party to the
proceeding, in accor-
dance with the require-
ments set forth above.
Mediation is not avail-
able in this proceeding.

Boyd applauds opening of

Marianna veterans clinic

WASHINGTON, D.C.-This week, Congressman Allen Boyd
(D-North Florida), a veteran of Vietnam, celebrated the impending
opening of the new veterans' clinic in Marianna, Florida, at a dedi-
cation and ribbon cutting ceremony. The new community-based
outpatient clinic (CBOC) in Jackson County will begin taking appli-
cations and scheduling patients for future appointments beginning
June 5 and will open for full services mid-June.
In January, the VA announced that the location for the CBOC in
Jackson County would be at a former medical practice office build-
ing located at 4970 Highway 90, just east of the State Road 71 inter-
section.
"I am proud of this new veterans' clinic, but more than that, I am
proud of theveterans it will serve," said Congressman Boyd. "Our
veterans deserve the best.care we can provide, as close to them as
we can provide it. With over 75,000 veterans in North Florida, this
new veterans' clinic really is an extraordinary victory for our veter-
ans."
Veterans who have not previously enrolled for care in VA will be
seen first. Patients currently being seen by a VA provider who wish
to transfer their care to the Marianna CBOC are asked to continue
to see their current provider. These veterans will be added to a wait-
ing list and will be worked in for appointments after the newly
enrolled veterans are seen.
The clinic will be a primary care facility that also can provide
mental health services, treat chronic diseases, and perform wellness
screenings. The VA anticipates that about 4,000 veterans, both new
and existing, will be served at the Marianna CBOC.
Since 2004, Congressman Boyd has been working with the VA to
move forward with the plans for a CBOC in Jackson County. In
2006, Congressman Boyd Health, Dr. Jonathan B. Perlin, to Marianna so that he. could meet
with local officials and talk about plans for the CBOC in Jackson
County.
. "We have an obligation to the men and women who have served
and defended our country," Boyd stated. "This new veterans' clin-
ic in Marianna will ensure that North Florida's deserving veterans
have convenient access to proper medical care, and the opening of.
the clinic in mid June will be an exciting day for our veterans."
The Jackson County CBOC was included in the VA Capital Asset
Realignment for Enhanced Services (CARES) decision in 2004.
The CARES decision is a strategic plan to provide quality, accessi-
ble healthcare to our veterans. The CARES decision addressees the
changing demographics and the aging infrastructure that plagues the
VA healthcare system. Once complete, it will allow the VA to pro-
vide essential healthcare for veterans now and for those in the
future.
