2 dead in Wednesday morning crash


6 occupants ejected from car; Interstate 10 closed for hours


By LESLIE ROBERTS
Times General Manager
Two people were killed in a
single-car crash Wednesday
morning that ejected six people
from a car traveling westbound
on Interstate 10.
The wreck occurred around 9
a.m. May 21 just west of the
bridge over the Apalachicola
River, near Chattahoochee. The
car struck a guardrail and came
to rest nose-first against the
barrier.
Two people died on the scene;
others were transported to the
hospital. Details were sketchy


Emancipation Day


Gadsden County celebrates in style

By ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
Back on May 20, 1865, more than two years
after the Emancipation Proclamation was signed ,, *-.
in Washington, DC, Union soldiers informed ?
people in this area that slaves had been freed. -
The actual Proclamation was read on the steps
of the Knott House in Tallahassee where General 5
Edward McCook and his men who were Union
soldiers in the Civil War were staying at the end
of the war.
The news soon filtered to surrounding areas and .
Gadsden Countians joined in the annual
celebrations. Communities and neighborhoods
held their own picnics which usually featured
fried fish and chicken, barbecued goat, and an
array of whatever vegetables that Were available
'in the garden or preserved. Men generally cooked
the meats and the women prepared the
vegetables, salads, and cakes and pies. The day .
usually ended in a softball game preceded by
other games, such as sack races and watermelon
seed spitting contests. Most celebrations included
singing gospel older people and more feisty tunes
by the young.
For many years, local African-Americans did
not celebrate July Fourth in this area opting to w-' -
celebrate May 20 as their day of independence.
Most of those celebrations have become a thing
of the past. One of the exceptions is the annual
celebration sponsored by the Gunn family in the
Sawdust Community, southwest of Quincy.
Each year thousands of people gather at the
family property where the descendentswof S.B. Dimitri Smith fried hundreds of pounds
Gunn keep his dream alive by remembering May of mullet Tuesday during the annual
20th and its meaning to the African-American Emancipation Day celebration. (Photo by
community. The celebration grows each year. Alice Du Pont)
Guests start gathering in the early afternoon to
watch as volunteers begin cooking around noon..
But for Gunn's six daughters and many of his grandchildren, and great grandchildren the
preparation for this year's 51 st consecutive celebration started late Monday night.
Downtown Quincy's newest restaurant, "Divine Grace" a family run establishment was the setting
for a lot of the preparation work for Tuesday big event. Members of the Gunn family had prepared
themselves mentally and physically for the two grueling days of work.
The family started arriving around closing time, 10 p.m.
"We're doing as much as we can up here
because we have the six burner stove, the grill, See CELEBRATION on Page 9


Wednesday morning, but Florida
Highway Patrol Lt. Ken Ellis
said no children were involved
in the crash.
FHP homicide investigators
were working the scene at press
time, and Florida Department of
Transportation officers blocked
eastbound traffic and rerouted
drivers through Sneads.
FHP troopers said Wednesday
they expected the interstate to
remain closed until at least 2
p.m.

GCSO looks


at ways to


protect its


informants


By ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
In light of the tragedy that occurred in Leon County
last week, the Gadsden County Sheriff's Office is
taking a close look at how it works with confidential
informants.
"We're reviewing our internal policies on
confidential informants and making sur6 we're doing
everything we can to ensure their safety and the safety
of our officers," said Lt. Jim Corder, commander of the
GCSO Narcotics and Vice Unit.
How and when confidential informants are used
came .under scrutiny following the death of a
Tallahassee woman, Rachel Hoffman, after an
undercover drug deal went bad.
In Gadsden County, according to Corder, 90 percent
of the drug arrest made come through some assistance
from confidential informants. Last year over $1 million
dollars worth of marijuana was seized as well as 9
kilograms of cocaine with a street value of close to
$200,000.
"Anyone can be an informant. Whether it's the
average citizen who comes up to an officer and
*provides information about suspicious activity or it can
be a person who has been given the opportunity to help
law enforcement after they have been arrested," Corder
said.
He' said that people who decide to become
confidential informants have the right to say "no" to
officers. Officers cannot promise a reduction on jail
time. Corder said the most officers can do is tell the
state's attorney and judge what services that person has
provided in helping solve cases.
Nothing has ever happened in Gadsden County that is
remotely close to the tragic end in the Hoffman case.
The only violent occurance with a confidential
informant took
place about three See INFORMANTS on Page 2


Man charged in death of girl enters plea in court


Tallahassee driver pleads no contest in 2007 death of 7-year-old Chattahoochee girl


By ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
Bryce E. Crosby, the
Tallahassee man arrested Dec.
1, .2007 and charged with
manslaughter by driving under
the influence and leaving the
scene of a crash involving death
pleaded no contest last Friday
morning in circuit court on both
charges.
Flanked by his parents, Crosby
said he was entering the plea of
his own free will and that he had
not been promised anything to
make the plea.
The maximum sentence on
each charge is 15 years in the
Florida Department of


Corrections.
He was released on bond
shortly after his arrest.
According to a report released
by the Florida Highway Patrol,
Crosby was driving a 2004 Ford
pickup truck around 11:15 a.m.
on Aspalaga Road just past
Murray Circle when he left the
roadway and traveled
westbound on the shoulder of
the road before driving onto
private property.
That's where Shanesia Cox, 7,
and her 4-year-old sister were
playing in Joanne Carpio's yard,
their grandmother.
The front of Crosby's truck
struck Cox and the child was
either dragged or thrown 40 feet


following the impact.

"I want my baby
back. He didn't say
he's sorry to the
family. He drove
through my yard and
took my baby. He's
with his family but my
baby is gone."

- Shanesia's grandmother, Joanne
Carpio
Shanesia was pronounced dead
at the scene.
Crosby continued after hitting


the child and was arrested
about a mile from the scene.
His blood alcohol level was
.222. In Florida a ,person is
considered intoxicated if the
blood alcohol level is .08 or
above.
Many of Cox's family-
members were in court to hear
Crosby's plea.
They said seeing Crosby
brought back painful memories
of the child who died just days
before Christmas.
"I want my baby back. He
didn't say he's sorry to the
family. He drove through my
yard and took my baby. He's
with his family but my baby is


gone. It's hard on me and I've
been having anxiety attacks,"
Carpio said, unable to fight back
tears.
"That front yard is a constant
memory of what took place.
What happened that day was all
the decision of this young man,"
said family attorney Benjamin
Crump.
Members of the community
mourned the little girl's death as
well, placing flowers at the site
of the wreck and holding a
memorial service for her at her
school, Chattahoochee
Elementary.
Crosby will learn his fate July
16 at 2 p.m. when Circuit Judge
Thomas Bateman will announce


his sentence.

Three minutes later and roughly
20 miles down the road, Victor
Salas, 23, of Tallahassee was
killed when his 1992 Chevrolet

truck and trailer driven by Dan
McCafferty, 55, of Rafferty, Fla.
Salas' truck then traveled onto

years ago.
"It was a large scale crack
cocaine case and one of the
people arrested bonded out and
confronted who he thought was
the informant and a fist fight
ensured. There were no injuries,"
he said.
But confidential informants are
an essential part of drug
enforcement. That's because in
small counties like Gadsden,
people involved in drug activity
are reluctant to make deal or even
talk to people they do not know.
"Confidential informants can
infiltrate places where even
undercover officers can't go.
They know the people; they know
the area where the people can be


pronounced dead at the scene; a
passenger, Pedro Ramirez, 25,
also of Tallahassee was taken to
Tallahassee Memorial Hospital
with minor injuries.
FHP investigators indicated on
the report that Salas had been
drinking.
And on Friday, Christopher
Free, 39, of Kinston, Ala., was
driving a tractor-trailer
westbound on the inside lane of I-
10 about a half-mile from Exit
166 when the trailer began to
fishtail. The right front of the
truck crashed into the concrete


found and they know the lingo,
no matter how you cut it, drug
enforcement is a risky business,"
Corder said.
But confidential informants are
not dumped and left to fend for
themselves.
Corder said before they do
anything informants must sign a
form stating that they have not
been promised anything or
coerced to become an informant.
They also understand they are not
law enforcement officers.
Still, when infohnants are
working on cases, officers take
extreme care in keeping them
safe.
"We either have physical
contact where we can see them or
we have electronic surveillance.
We are in contact at all times. The
bigger the case, the tighter the


* barrier wall of the bridge, then
continued westbound on the
shoulder where it hit roughly 90
feet of guardrail. Free then over-
corrected, according to FHP
reports, causing the tractor-trailer
to jackknife in the outside lane
just west of the bridge. The
tractor came to a rest facing
north; the trailer, facing west. The
crash resulted in another crash at
the same location and the road
was blocked for around two
hours.
FHP was assisted by the GCSO
and Gadsden County EMS.


surveillance," he said.
In a perfect world, he said, they
would only used law enforcement
officers who are trained in
undercover activity.
But most law enforcement
agencies don't have that luxury.
According to Corder, most
informants receive some financial
reward for their help.
The sheriff's office narcotics
and vice unit is grant funded and
includes money to make
controlled drug buys and to pay
confidential informants.
In the secretive world of drugs,
Corder said the GCSO must
continue to rely on informants.
He doesn't know yet how the
Hoffman death-will impact the
number of informants who will
continue to help the curb the drug
activity in the county.

Quincy native tells her story to Florida State University grads


Special to the Times
By Doug Carlson

TALLAHASSEE - When Dr.
Alma Littles talks about the role
graduates of the Florida State
University College of Medicine
play in meeting health-care
needs for Florida's rural, minor-
ity and elderly populations, she
doesn't need statistics. She's got
a personal story to tell.
The story obviously resonated
with an audience of approxi-
mately 700 people May 17 when
Littles, who grew up and lives in
Quincy, served as commence-
ment speaker during the FSU
College of Medicine graduation
ceremony.
"We have equipped you with
some of the most advanced,
high-tech, cutting edge medical
knowledge and skills available
in the world," Littles told the 58
graduates. "But what will make
the difference in your success as
physicians is what comes from
your heart, calling on those
qualities instilled in you early in
life from your family and others
around you."
As she spoke, the words clearly
hit home for graduates and their
family members. Mothers and.
fathers of the graduates often
broke into spontaneous bobbing
of the head as they nodded in
vigorous agreement with Littles'


comments.
"You were reminded many
times in your medical school
career about the expectations
that society would have of you
as medical students," Littles
said. "Those expectations will
dramatically increase as you
leave today with your degrees.
The medical profession is a call-
ing that is devoted to health,
healing, caring and compassion.
Society has entrusted us with its
health and well-being and with
that trust comes a responsibility
that is unmatched in other pro-
fessions. We are expected to
meet higher standards of knowl-
edge, skill, compassion, ethics
and service."
Littles, who serves as senior
associate dean for academic
affairs at the FSU College of
.Medicine, knows the higher
standard well and her compas-
sion is rooted in personal experi-
ence with the health-care sys-
tem.
Following her graduation from
Shanks High in 1978, Littles
pursued, her childhood dream of
becoming a doctor and graduat-
ed from the University of
Florida College of Medicine in
1986.
Her vision was shaped by seeing
how a lack of adequate health
'.care impacts families and socie-
ty. As the youngest of 12 chil-


dren, 10 of whom survived
infancy, Littles grew up in
Quincy in a household racked
by illness. When she was 14, her
father died of a heart attack.
Littles has spent a lifetime of
service trying to prepare physi-
cians to provide the kind of care
that could have helped prevent
some of the suffering she wit-
nessed growing up in Quincy.
Speaking to the Class of 2008 at
graduation was especially grati-
fying. Four years earlier, Littles
was invited to address the same
students during their White Coat
Ceremony, the traditional occa-
sion when new medical students
receive the coats that symbolize
their acceptance of the responsi-
bilities that go along with
becoming a physician.
Among those in attendance at
Ruby Diamond Auditorium on
the FSU campus were Littles'
mother, Mattie Brown, a Quincy
resident who turns 90 in
September. Other relatives from
Quincy who attended were sis-
ters Gwendolyn Sailor and
Catherine Bryant; nephew
Cedric Roney and nieces Shelia
McMillian and Jasmine Sailor.
Dr. Littles graduated from
Shanks High (Class of 1978),
the University of Florida and the
University of Florida College of
Medicine.
She completed a three-year resi-

dency program in family medi-
cine at Tallahassee Memorial
Hospital and later set up a pri-
vate family practice in Quincy
before returning to TMH in
1996 as a faculty physician in
the residency program. In 1999,
Dr. Littles was named director
of the residency program.
Dr. Littles resides in Quincy
with her husband, Gentle, and


son, Germaine.
At the FSU College of
Medicine, Dr. Littles has overall
responsibility for overseeing the
design, development, imple-
mentation and evaluation of the
four-year comprehensive cur-
riculum leading to the M.D.
degree. In addition, Dr. Littles
serves as designated institution-
al official for the College Of


Medicine's graduate medical
education programs at Sacred
Heart Health System in
Pensacola. Physicians in the res-
idency programs for
obstetrics/gynecology and pedi-
atrics are trained and supervised
by FSU faculty physicians at
Sacred Heart with oversight
from Dr. Littles.

K f~ CSS f


When we hunker down to talk, we're all on the same level, by
Kesley Colbert, just a good ole boy that likes to write.


We ve lost a bell cow


I don't remember the first time I
met Billy Joe Rish. He was an institution in
this county way long before I got here. I
was a little surprised when he knocked on
the door of the ex-hardware store where I
was living my first year in town. This was
1969.
"Coach, my family is riding over
to the Bay County Fair. Come on and go
with us."
I didn't have to check my social
calendar. I didn't have to call anyone to let
them know where I was going. No one was
going to miss me. I had spent the first half-
dozen week-ends in my new surroundings
out on a park bench I'd pulled up in front
of the store. I whiled away the hours
practicing my Tennessee "howdy" wave on
folks I didn't know as they came and went
to town.
Miss Carol climbed in the back with
Jay and Cathy. Before I could settle in my
seat we were passing St. Joe Beach. I
reckoned we were running late. He asked
about the football team. And where I was
from. And how I liked St. Joe. And what
church I went to. And how often I called
my mama.....
He had digested my whole life
before we got to 15th Street. In between
answers he filled me in on Gulf County and
its list of characters. I laughed along with
every story and marveled at all he knew.
And I also marveled that an established
family and local icon would take the time
to haul a 21 year old newcomer to Panama
City on a Saturday afternoon.
He didn't run into me by accident. He
and Carol had talked it over! I don't know
to this day how they felt my loneliness. Or
what impressed on them my need for a
friendly face. Or how they showed up at
just the right time. I will tell you this, they
offered me a heck of a lot more than just a
trip to the fair!
"Coach, I'm not too big on the rides.
They've got a chewing tobacco contest
here somewhere." It took us a while to get
down to the spitting booth. He knew every
single person at the fair. And I mean every
one! They all stopped to chat! It was
amazing! He. talked cattle, politics,
boundary lines, fishing at Howard Creek,
Bob Sikes' latest comments, wood
chopping, the state hospital at
Chattahoochee, the new baseball play-off
system, the pros and cons of the Dead
Lakes dam, local industry, Bob Graham's
merits, Gulf Coast Junior College, the
price of eggs in China...... I felt pretty
dang important just walking along beside
him.
He signed us both up for the accuracy
and the distance contests. I was a little
nervous. I was ok to middling on the
accuracy part but I thought I had a chance
in the distance category. I had been a
proponent of the quick hip-neck snap
method of distance spitting for years.


Billy Joe got me over to the side,
gave me a chew of Beech Nut and we
practiced a little. He was serious ,about this
thing! I came in second in the accuracy
part. He was so proud of me. He was
introducing me to everyone standing
around. The distance contest was a
different matter. The wind kicked up a little
and a couple of fellows from up near
Wausau loaded (added some bb's or bits of
gum) their chew as to take unfair
advantage. The extra weight put them way
out front. Neither me or Billy Joe placed. I
wanted to cry foul but Billy Joe just
laughed. He wouldn't let me pay him back
for the entry fee.
I brought my Cathy to town a few years
later. We were down at Doll Collier's store
when Billy Joe and Cliff Sanborn came in.
He offered to pay for all the oysters she
could eat. Well, you know how little Cathy
is.... She will fool you! She was on her
fourth or fifth dozen when me and Cliff
left'em. I don't know how many she ate.
Billy Joe talked about that for years. He
always liked her better than he did me!
I got tricked into trying politics several
years, back. Billy Joe never said yea or nay
about it. He didn't encourage or
discourage. I didn't find out until months
later that he had very quietly been helping
me from the first announcement. Shucks, I
should have asked him for money.....
He took to calling me Kelsey. He always
raised his voice when he "declared" it to
make sure I understood the pun he
intended. He was poking a little fun at all
of those well meaning folks that never get
my name right.
He gave my oldest son a job when he
was still in high school and jobs were hard
to come by. Billy Joe would go up to the
farm and work right along side of him. I
never knew exactly what he and Josh did
up there. But Josh would come home, dirty
as a pig that had wallowed on the wet side
all day, and regale Cathy and me with tales
about stump pulling, hay pitching or some
early settlers to Gulf County. The silence
on the other, end of the line when I told him
of Billy Joe's passing spoke volumes. And
was a far more fitting tribute than I could
ever give.
Billy Joe just recently had taken an
active interest in my youngest son.
"Kelsey, give me a few days. I'll think of
something."
He didn't tell me he liked me. He didn't
make a "noise" over helping me. And he
didn't treat me special nor was I one of his
favorites. He just, from day one, afforded
me the best southern courtesy and respect
he could muster. I fear it is a way of life
that is fast fading from the scene.
There will be great accolades paid to him
in the coming days, weeks and months.
And they will all be correct and fitting.
Billy Joe's life affected so many people.
There are many, many folks that knew him
better, loved him more and can tell his
story much better than me.

By Jack Levine

As our nation gathers next Memorial
Day weekend to honor those who
fought and died in war, let's also
consider � the importance of
celebrating the peacemakers.... those
whose humanitarian dedication
addresses problems which spark
aggression.
The peacemakers' medical,
educational and faith-motivated
activities provide a valuable
ambassadorship in nations who are
desperate for assistance to fight
disease and hunger, and avoid
tragedy. These organizations,
philanthropies and dedicated
individuals are not only giving relief
and responding to disaster,
they are building the bridge of good-
will which can ameliorate conditions
which promote conflict.
It's time to recognize the
contributions of Peace Corps
members, medical missionaries,
teachers, therapists, agricultural
experts and others who understand
that this nation's power is not only in
its weaponry, but in its commitment
to international aid.
Our military defenses must be strong
to protect us against those who
would do us harm, but there is
strength in our resolve to be a nation
which promotes prosperity and
exemplifies peaceful resolution of
conflict.
Striking that balance is the key to our
success as a society as we strive for
world peace.
SInvesting in our families is an
essential domestic security strategy,
and sharing with others the tools they

need to build their own safe and
secure communities is in our best
interest.
Let's resolve to honor the fallen this
Memorial Day weekend by
dedicating ourselves to peace and
positive policies for all members of
the human family, and the many
species and natural environments
that need our protection.

,In Ecclesiastes 3:1-8 we read.....
For everything there is a season,
And a time for every matter under
heaven:
A time to be born, and a time to die;
A time to plant, and a time to pluck
up what is planted;
A time to kill, and a time to heal;
A time to break down, and a time to
build up;
A time to weep, and a time to laugh;
A time to mourn, and a time to
dance;
A time to throw away stones, and a
time to gather stones together;
A time to embrace, And a time to
refrain from embracing;
A time to seek, and a time to lose;
A time to keep, and a time to throw
away;
A time to tear, and a time to sew;
A time to keep silence, and a time to
speak;
A time to love, and a time to hate,
A time for war, and a time for peace.

These timeless words about life's
balance are a beacon of truth for us
all.

Letters

to thetor




When I read the letter in last week's paper, though not
surprised because I anticipated this brand of
commentary, I was taken aback by this obvious lack of
knowledge pertaining to a city that Mr. Hawkins doesn't
even live in. I was disappointed by his bold assertions
about my failures without providing any supporting
statistical data. My honest opinion is that the people of
Gadsden County are tired of the political posturing and
negativity that causes gridlock in county government
and prevents any meaningful resolutions to the struggles
they face every day. I believe that the people are ready
for change in the way we debate our differences and can
make reasonable judgments about one's character and
political record without slanderous behavior. Therefore,
this letter should be viewed not as an attack on Mr.
Hawkins, or the commissioners he represents, but as an
opportunity for me to speak for myself and set the
record straight.
The constituents spoke loudly and clearly during my
re-election bid and overwhelmingly cast their votes
(80%) in my favor because they knew we were making
a difference. I'm a second term commissioner primarily
because the people of Quincy and especially my district
believe in me and the City Commission which is making
a positive impact on their lives. It's laughable to think
that I'm unqualified to be a city commissioner, so let me
disqualify this assertion that I am not "certified as a
Commissioner". In 2004, I was one of many newly
elected officials who traveled to Tampa to obtain the
recommended training which included Robert's Rules of
Order, Public Record Law, and Ethics Law for Elected
Officials. But what greater qualifies me, is a proven
history of dedication to improving people's lives and my
undeniable love for this county.
My candidacy for Gadsden County Commission
District Five is no shell game. The only games that are
being played are by those who think the citizens of this
GREAT and PROUD County can't see through the
same old smear politics. This has stood in the way of
togetherness and collective bargaining that's needed so
that our common interests may be addressed. In closing,
I'd like to say that there should be no further response to
any of your future commentary, with all due respect, you
can write as much as you please. But as you write,
know that attention will be focused on issues that matter
most to the people of Gadsden County, such as a vital
medical facility, increased funding for disadvantaged
transportation, senior citizens programs, Sheriff's
Department, utility assistance, and community re-
vitalization (housing, jobs and businesses).

Memorial Day a

reminder of what

they gave ... and

what they got

Memorial Day is our
opportunity to honor the brave
men and women who throughout
our nation's history have made
the ultimate sacrifice in order to
preserve our freedoms. If not for
those who answered the call to
duty, we would not be the great
nation that we are today. For
their service and sacrifice, we as
Americans are eternally grateful,
and I encourage the people 'of
North Florida to take the time
this Memorial Day to remember
our nation's heroes. The federal
government also should
recognize this sacrifice by
keeping the promises we have
made to our veterans, and in
Congress and at home, I am
working hard to make good on
these promises.
In Washington, after years of
Department of Veterans Affairs
(VA) budgets that have barely
kept up with inflation, this
Congress increased benefits and
healthcare funding for our
veterans in 2008 by $6.6 billion
above the 2007 level, the largest
increase in the 77-year history of
the VA. This Congress also
'focused'tenous attentionhon the
400,000 claims backlog by
adding 3,100 new claims
processors to the VA, reducing
the unacceptable delays in
receiving earned benefits.
More recently, I worked in the
House of Representatives to pass
an expanded GI Bill that would
restore the assurance of a full,
fouir-year college education for
our veterans returning from Iraq
and Afghanistan. In the wars in
Iraq and Afghanistan, our
guardsmen and reservists have
been deployed at a level that we
have not seen since World War II.
Many of these guardsmen and
reservists were in career
professions before these wars,
and many will return home
unable to continue these
professions because of physical
or mental injuries sustained
during service. This new GI Bill
would make the veterans of Iraq
and Afghanistan part of American
economic recovery efforts, just as
the veterans of World War II.
Some in Congress. originally
preferred to pass a GI Bill that
was only partially funded through
2009, but I believe that our
veterans deserve better. By
working with my colleagues in
the House, I was able to persuade
them that the GI Bill must be
fully funded and paid for upfront,
so that there is no chance that
these important education
benefits for our veterans will be
cut in the future. This bill is still
going through the legislative
process, and I encourage , the
Senate, as they consider the GI
Bill and the supplemental bill, to
strengthen veterans' benefits and
fully fund the GI Bill.
At home, I also am working to
make sure that the critical needs
of our veterans are met. On May
12, I joined the people of Jackson
County, the veterans of North
Florida, and the VA to celebrate
the upcoming opening of the new
veterans' clinic in Marianna,
Florida. The new veterans' clinic
will begin taking applications and
scheduling patients for future
appointments beginning June 5
and will open for full services
mid-June. The clinic will be a
primary care facility that also

Havana student graduates from Chick-fil-A leadership program


When Billy Findley enters
college in the fall, he will be a
leg up on fellow freshmen who
went into the classroom straight
out of high school.
That's because the Havana
resident is among a growing
number of students adding a
year to the traditional education-
al track to enroll in a gap year
program. On May 2 he graduat-
ed from IMPACT 360 in Pine
Mountain, Ga., an intensive res-
idential academic program
whose nine-month format is
growingg in popularity among
recent high school graduates.
More students nationwide are
looking into structured gap year
programs where they take a
deeper look at what they want to
accomplish in life and explore
those options immediately after
high school graduation. Some
are traveling, others are entering
the market place as interns to
explore career options, and
some are enrolling in cutting
edge academic programs where
knowledge gained, rather than
grades earned, are the focus.
Adding life experiences to
one's personal resume is the
name of the game.
For Findley, a 2007 home
school graduate, that meant
enrolling in a program where he
could learn corporate leadership
skills while refining his
Christian worldview. IMPACT
360, affiliated with Chick-fil-A
based in suburban Atlanta,
offers training at the popular
chicken restaurant chain's cor-
porate headquarters as well as
instruction on how to incorpo-
rate Christian values into a day-
to-day lifestyle. /
As a result of fIiat training,
Findley will eib'oll at Bryan
College in Dayton, TN. He
hopes to dovetail his IMPACT
360 experience and his college
years to equip himself with the
skills to purse a vocation as an
individual led by Christian val-
ues.
Findley says the past nine
months in the innovative pro-
gram has helped him focus on
his future by helping him to
identify what he enjoys best.
"We study a lot about voca-
tions, and we study a lot about
our strengths. You'll definitely
find your strengths at Impact
360. You're going to find where
you're talented afid where your
gifts are and where you're going
to be able to use them. And this
approach is not just about find-
ing your place in ministry, it's a
holistic approach that includes
the secular marketplace, and
that's something that is empha-
sized all year long. We are
taught that there is no difference
between sacred and secular; it is
all sacred," he explained. "You


come to realize that we need
Christians in the marketplace,
and not just in church vocations,
as good as they are."
The time at IMPACT 360
was focused and structured,
with students like Findley read-
ing numerous books from a vari-
ety of philosophical disciplines
and writing a review on each
book.
IMPACT 360 is not a training
program designed exclusively
for students called into full-time
Christian service. Rather, its
purpose is to assist students in
developing a biblical worldview
that can be applied to any voca-
tion.
At the campus just south of
Atlanta, up to 25 students are
mentored in development of a
Christian worldview so they can
refine what it means to be a
believer and be able to articulate
that to others from an intellectu-
al as well as relational perspec-
tive.
An equally important aspect
of the program is helping stu-
dents learn strong leadership
skills that will allow them to be
successful leaders wherever
life's path may take them. That's
where attending 10" classes at
Chick-fil-A University comes
into play. Students are taught by
Chick-fil-A leadership experts
and over the course of the aca-
demic year they learn through
the classroom as well as service
experience that the company's
secret to success is the servant
leadership model of business.
IMPACT 360's approach to
the gap year curriculum also
includes a month of internation-
al missions experience where
students receive ministry expo-
sure in a. foreign culture. That's
where Findley says he received
additional mentoring in devel-
oping a Christian worldview.
Findley and his student col-
leagues served in Eastern
Europe during the month of
January, working alongside
career missionaries of the
International Mission Board, an
agency of the Southern Baptist
Convention. Findley served for
a month in Prague, Czech
Republic.
The Floridian is a member of
Grace Church in Tallahassee,
but the IMPACT 360 program is
interdenominational in its
approach.
Students receive a year of
intense study and mentoring
from some of the nation's most
successful Christian business-
men and thinkers. That exposure
introduces students to role mod-
els who prove that Christianity
and intellect are not mutually
exclusive.

Billy Findley receives his certificate from (left to right) John and Trudy Cathy White (daughter of Truett Cathy, founder of Chick-fil-
A). The two are the co-founders of IMPACT 360. Findley is in the center next to John Basie, associate director of academics.

Developers, residents debate South Springs development


By ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

Editor's Note: This is the first
of a series of three articles about
the South Springs Developers
and the residents of Cox Road
just south of'QuincY.

It's a classic case of tug-of-
war if there ever was one.
Holding the rope at one end are
the developers of a housing
development meant for low-
income residents. North Florida
Educational Development
Corporation (NFEDC), and at
the other end are the homeown-
ers who live and farm on Cox
Lane.
In 2000 NFEDC purchased
92 acres planning to develop the


property into an affordable sub-
division. The families along Cox
Lane, several had been farming
the adjacent property for more
than 100 years were aware of
the project but since it would not
affect them, they had no cause
for concern.
The plan was to develop the
land with entrance and exit
roads on Hogan Lane and South
Springs Road, the connection
that would run from Wal-Mart to
Pat Thomas Parkway.
But nothing happened. From
2000 when the sale was made to
February 2004, when the county
approved the land use change
from Agriculture 2 to Urban
Service area. The land use
change officially allowed the
developer to be able to put more


houses on the property. A year
later in February 2005 NFEDC
approached the Board of County
Commissioners requesting
approval of the plats that had
been laid out.
Some of the lots were small,
a few were no more than 6,000
feet or just over one tenth of an
acre. Commissioners told
NFEDC that the homes would
be to crammed together and
there would be no place for chil-
dren to play.
The Bolard of County
Commissioners approved the
plan but said that the minimum
lot size would have to increase
to a half acre.
The City of Quincy was
looking to annex property and in
April of last year, South Springs


was annexed. But the lot size
had not changed, as suggested
by the Board of County
Commissioners. But people who
live on Cox Lane were not noti-
fied. City codes on require that
people who live in the city be
notified.
Cox Lane is a county road
and the- people who live along
the street are officially county
residents. However, the twist is
that just south of Cox lane,
which includes South Springs
and Wal-Mart, are included in
the City of Quincy. So the resi-
dents on Cox Lane live on a
county island surrounded by city
residents.
Last week the rope was
pulled again when the City of
Quincy was notified by the


Department of Community
Affairs that all of Quincy's
development requesting DCA
approval had been rejected. This
action, in effect stops any fur-
ther action on the South Springs
development until DCA is satis-
fied.
Prior to the transmittal of the
documents to DCA, Cox lane
resident Wesley Cox told city
commissioners that South
Springs was out of compliance
but transmittal was approval
anyway.
Before the transmittal of the
land use amendment as sent to
DCA, concerns were aired dur-
ing the commissioner meeting
after Cox's revelation were
made. When questioned City
Manager Bill Bogan told the


commission that he had gotten
conflicting information from
DCA on the matter. He said the
DCA who was giving out the
conflicting information had
been let go from DCA the week
preceding the meeting and that
another individual was now
working with the city.
The residents say they don't
oppose South Springs develop-
ment, they object to not getting
notification so that they could
have their views heard and they
object to Cox Lane's use as
entrance and exit points to South
Springs.
Next week: Will Cox Lane have
water and sewer and the conflicting cor-
respondence and who will pay for it.
Will the city pave a county road that is
too narrow? Will the county pave a road
- that will serve on city residents?

Col.
The first %week of January I look a
part time job in Liberty County work-
ing in the newly Tformed Liberty
County Recreation Department. I
guess my job title is Consultant. I'm
actually helping the Director. Richie
Smith get the program started.
Richie is a Liberty County lad
Like myself. he knows most of the
people we deal with.
Richie. was a standout athlete at
Liberty County High School, and also
starred in baseball at Chipola and
Florida State.
Richie played Post 84 baseball in
Quincy for 3 years and I later worked
with him when I .ran the Anti- Tobacco


program at the Health Department. So,
Richie and I are far from strangers.
Thus far the job has gone pretty
good. I'\e been out of recreation for
10 Nears and some things have
changed. There is, an age cut off dale
of MaV I for most programs, nit use to
be August I. That ma\ not seem like
much but inmsead of having 10-12 year
olds in little league piogiams you have
a lot of 13 year olds
There's also wa\ too many pro-
grams going on In youth baseball
alone theie is Cal Ripkin. Dixie Youth,
Dixle Boys, Babe Ruth. Little League.
Connie Mack. Dizzy Dean, and several
more. Rules vary from league to
league so it's hard to know what you're
dealing "with day to day. Seems to me
what happened is. if someone doesn't
like ,hat's going on in one program
they just switch to another.
Basically. a lot of things are the
same though. There are still little
league moms and dads. though they're
not really that bad in Liberty County.
There's s.,till the problem of umpires
not sho% ing up. so. sometimes I, or.
Richie have to officiate. There's still a
problem of people not knowing what a
irash can is for and it's not always kids.
But the main thing that is the same is
kids. Left alone. the\ ha\e fun, enjoy
each other, and laugh a bunch.

Eagles drop hearbreaker in tourney

This time, the Tallahassee Community College Eagles had the
tables turned against them.
One strike away from earning an opening round win over San
Jacinto (Texas) College-South, the Coytoes delivered a two-run sin-
gle to stay alive, eventually earning a 5-2, eight-inning victory over
the Eagles at the NJCAA Division I Fast Pitch Championships.
TCC pitcher Amanda Reyes (16-16) pitched into the eighth
inning, scaterring eight hits and only walking two, before giving
way to Morgan O'Keefe.
After falling behind 2-1 in the top of the seventh, the Eagles, as
they have so often during the postseason, rallied. Pinch hitter Lela
Land stepped to the plate and smacked a one-out home run over the
left field fence to knot the score at two.
After fouling off a series of pitches, San Jacinto (38-15) respond-
ed with a three-run eighth. Cheyenne Parent scored what turned out
to be the winning run on Janet Rendon's one-out single. San Jacinto
won 5-2.


Seminole Ramlins

May 18, 2008

Bream and Shellcracker
came in all week long on
Crickets and Wigglers. Some
very fine ones. We all look to
May to fill up our freezers with
them frozen on water. Most are
not fooled. Some even save
enough Crappie Row and other
Row to have two or three mess-'
es of them along with grits.
Several folks took Crappie
this week on Jigs, however, just
when they promised me 20
gooduns, he caught 4 little
dinks. That's the way the ball
bounces some times. By the
time you read this the moon will
have fulled and we'll be sliding
toward dark nites. With this in
mind I will give you the signs of
"the Old 12 Days." They say
June clear, no clouds, no rain.
July clear, chilly, no rain.
August clear, no rain, chilly.
Sept. clear, no rain, chilly.
That's far enough for now,
and we here at Wingate's got 1
3/4 inch of rain out of the storm
that past last week.

Saturday with great results. 75

need to use it all," said
LaTrenda Goldwire, a
granddaughter. As more
cousins arrived she asked
if they brought their knives
and cutting boards.
IThe task at hand was to
peel, dice and boil 160
pounds of potatoes for
potato salad, dice mounds
of onions and bell peppers
for 80 gallons of baked
beans, wash piles of lettuce
and cases of tomatoes for
tossed salad, clean 1,000
pounds of fresh fish and 16
cases of chicken wings and
drumsticks.
The majority of the work
to feed the expected 1,500
people will be on the
shoulders of Gunn's
daughters: Eva Gunn

Almost 75 of the sister's
children, grandchildren,
daughters-in-law and sons-
in-law are all lending a
helping hand. Most have
taken vacation time from
their jobs.to make sure this
year's event is a success..
"My grandfather, on his
dying bed, asked that we


continue this tradition.
People come from all over
for this and we enjoy doing
this for them and to keep
the meaning of May 20
alive and in people's
minds," Goldwire said.
The family discovered
several years ago that
many of the young people
who came to the event
were not aware of the
meaning. That's when they
began inviting guest
speakers to explain ' the
significance of the day to
African Americans. Rev.
Greg James was the
keynote speaker this year.


Thousands gathered
at the S.B. Gunn family
property in Sawdust
May 20 for the site's
annual Emancipation
Day celebration. The day
featured plenty of food,
fun and singing - along
with catching up with
old friends. Folks of all

provides mental health
services, treats chronic
diseases, and performs
wellness screenings.
The VA anticipates that
about 4,000 veterans,
both new and existing,
will be served at the
Marianna veterans'
clinic. Our veterans
deserve the best and
most accessible
healthcare that we can
provide.


We must always
remember that caring
for our veterans is a
continuing cost of war
and an important
component of our
national defense.
The phrase, "Support
our Troops," found on
bumper stickers and
symbolized by yellow
ribbons, is more than


the men and women
who put on the uniform
and serve and defend
our great country. With
the wars in Iraq and
Afghanistan, we have a
new generation of
veterans who need our
support, and I believe
that it is our moral duty
to provide them with
the care and benefits


just a slogan-it is a they were promised and
solemn commitment to deserve. I am proud of


the progress that this
Congress has made to
strengthen veterans'
benefits and improve
access to veterans'
medical services. We
still have much more to
do in Washington and in
North Florida, and I
will continue to work to
build on this progress
and honor the
commitment we have
made to our veterans.

Renowned local botanist honored by Nature Conservancy

By LESLIE ROBERTS
Times General Manager

Talking to him, you can hear the woods and the river run through his voice.
His love of Chattahoochee's river and ravines, its flora and fauna, is what led him to undertake
an earnest study of them years ago. C onte -om-

Angus Gholson Jr. found a way to celebrate the slender twist of the Torreya and the melody of the ll l l J
mountain laurel.
"I've been interested in this certainly all my adult life," he said. "Dr. Bob Godfrey was at the "'" fa
University of Florida during the time I was studying forestry -he was my mentor. My father was . I
in the general merchandise business for many years. In the latter part of his life he served as
justice of the peace. He loved gardening, and he liked the woods, and my mother did, too. So I
guess I come by it naturally."
Born and raised in Chattahoochee, Gholson was honored May 15 by The Nature Conservancy as
the namesake of a new environmental center on the Conservancy's Apalachicola Bluffs and
Ravines Preserve in Bristol. At a ceremony attended by people from throughout the region -
including botanists, county officials, congressional staff and the Conservancy's board of trustees
- the Angus Gholson Jr. Environmental Learning Center was dedicated. Above,

His name is well-known among conservationists, Printiss said.
"Angus is a fixture in this region. He has been doing great botanical work his entire life,"
Printiss said. "He's got an unending supply of energy and enthusiasm for conservation, he is a
Southern gentleman's Southern gentleman and he is a warm, caring individual with a conservation
ethic second to none."
Gholson volunteered for years at the preserve and discovered a unique blazing star that was
named for him in 2002 - Liatris gholosonii.
There is also a park in Chattahoochee named after him.
"He has been a steadfast resource for The Nature Conservancy," said the Conservancy's Jon
Blanchard, the preserve's former'manager who was instrumental in the learning center's creation.
"He has spent a life's work knowing his home.. .this has been a marvel to me."
Gholson's love for plants matches the area, which he said is "like nowhere else in the world."
The 6,295-acre preserve includes bluffs as high as 200 feet along the Apalachicola River, rare
steephead ravines, and a wide variety of rare plants and animals.
"These steephead ravines open your eyes to another world. They call out to you, 'Hey there,'"
Angus said in accepting the honor. "I'm certainly gratified and please."
Born to A. K. "Happy" and Anna Mae Gholson, Gholson played football on a six-man team for
Chattahoochee High School, beating a Kentucky team that came to town in the 1930s.
He was a student at UF when World War II broke out, and he served as a bomber. He finished
school after the war.
He's been married to his wife, Eloise, for 65 years - the two live in the home he grew up in.
They have two children - A.K. "Kemp" Gholson III and Laura Smith - four granddaughters and
three great-granddaughters.
Through the years, he's kept a guest book to record the names of all the visitors he's had -
thousands, he estimates, students, teachers, scientists, and sojourners.
They come from all over the world.
"I remember when a couple from Russia came here - they were in this country looking for plants
of the sunflower group that they could cross with plants of the same variety at home and use for
food," he said.
He still hikes and he remains enraptured with the place he's spent most of his life.
"The Apalachicola River area is really a special spot - with those bluffs and ravines - it's a very
important place for our whole country," he said. "There are not many places like this in the United
States or in the world, for that matter."

ters to pay for her. Dr. Sterling

this unusual payment, but drove
all the way back from town to
tell her parents she was the first
baby he had delivered born
"under a veil". According to
Bible and folk tradition, this
meant she. would be able to tell
the future. Instead, she always
eared for, and worked to pre-
serve, the past! One such proj-
ect has been Gadsden County's
Shade Tobacco heritage. In
1984, she and her husband, Bob
Lay, Sr., set out to save the
Family tobacco barn, which she
saw as full of community ties
and representative of the 100s of
barns daily disappearing from
the landscape. This project
resulted in occasional "Barn
Days" to give local people, new-
comers and others a chance to
re-live Shade Tobacco times.
She is survived by brother;
Forrest (Ann) Davis of Quincy,
two (2) sisters; Saradee Davis
(Tom) Bowen of Chipley and
Betty Davis (Bill) Morrison of

verse of the week:
And Cain talked with Abel his brother: and it came to pass, when they were in the field,
that Cain rose up against Abel his brother, and slew him. Genesis 4:8 (KJV)

Adam and Eve lived in the
Garden of Eden. They had
two sons Cain the oldest and
i ,V Abel the youngest. Cain was
S // a gardener and Abel was a
farmer of the ground.
b" i. ' ^ Cain became very mad
with Abel because God did
Slnot accept his offering, he
accepted Abel's instead. Out
of anger and jealousy he
5. killed his brother. God then
/' came looking for Cain and
' knew he had killed Abel
punished him for murdering
his brother. He had to wander
' '.._ and become a vagabond for
the rest of his life and had a
mark nut unnn him

Family TVime Th1s \t VeeIZ:.

Madison, Quincy. W RO-


EGHS student serves
as Senate page

Dana Martin served as a Senate
Page during the week of April 14
- 18 at the Capitol in Tallahassee.
The Senate Page Program gives
Florida students the opportunity
to observe and participate in the
legislative process.
During regular sessions of the
Legislature, participating students
commute to Tallahassee for one
week in the Senate Chamber, to
distribute materials, and deliver
messages to senators and the
professional staff.
During each week of the
session, pages discuss the
legislative process and participate
in a "mock session."
Students act as Senators,
debating and voting on bills.
Other educational opportunities
and Capitol tours are planned
during sessions.
Dana was sponsored by Senator
Al Lawson, and she had the


opportunity to discuss
legislative process as


secretary of state during the
"mock session".
Throughout the entire week
Dana said that being apart of the
Senate page program made a
huge impact on her in a very
educational way that she will
never forget.
Dana is a sophomore student at
East Gadsden High School and
the daughter of Barnie and Linda
Martin-Smith and the
Granddaughter of Sarah Murray
of Quincy.

was adopted and most rock
BAND from Page BI

aficionados know the origin of
the name as being the name of a
high school gym teacher who
used to give them a very hard
time about their long hair. Two
years later, the band was discov-
ered and offered their first
album deal, which produced the
song whose title has become a
Southerner's rebel yell, "Free
Bird."
Over the next four years, the
band produced hit after hit,
including "Sweet Home
Alabama," "Gimme Three
Steps," "Simple Man" and
more. In 1977, at the height of
their career, tragedy struck when
the band's plane crashed, killing
Ronnie Van Zant, Steve Gaines,-
Cassie Gaines and several more
of their crew. Lynyrd Skynyrd
was no more
For 10 long years., the sounds
of Skynyrd were heard only on
radio and records. But in 1987,
the band's survivors re-grouped
for a tribute tour with Johnny
Van Zant, Ronnie's little broth-
er, at the lead.
Fan response was so great,
the band has continued to per-
form and record ever since.
Wild Adventures will host
the rock legends for Memorial
Day weekend. The show starts
at 6:30 pm with opening act
Steve Richards. The concert is
included in the price of park
