Attorney:

Quincy can't


charge for

last year's

electricity

By ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
Jack McLean, former City of Quincy
attorney, has informed city commissioners that
neither the commission nor the city manager
has the authority to retroactively authorize a
pass through of fuel adjustment charges.
The city was informed by Progress Energy
that it owed an additional $407,000 at the end
of 2007. The payback amount was to be paid
by the citizens for four months in the current
fuel charges.. The charges were incurred
because, according to Progress Energy, more
fuel was consumed than was charged to the
city throughout 2007.
According to Florida statute, "the energy
adjustment shall be computed each month by

Quincy City Commissioners vote 3-2 to
terminate manager Bill Bogan's contract


BY ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
The City of Quincy terminated City
Manager Bill Bogan's contract Tuesday
night during the regular meeting. The
motion to relieve Bogan was made by
Commissioner Keith Dowdell. He asked for
a special meeting Wednesday toi offer
former city attorney Jack McLean. the
position of interim city manager.
"Several times we've given him direction
to find a finance director. We hired him at
$110,000 two years ago and we still don't
have a finance director. I don't think the
city manager is ever going to hire a finance


director. I told him there is no way I will
pay him $110,000," Dowdell said.
He also said while he had supported
Netquincy, his feelings have changed.
"If you take a deep look at Netquincy, it's
going to fold and it's going to fold hard.
I've told him we cannot pay some of these
high salaries," Dowdell said, adding, "we
need to terminate this contract and we need
to do it quickly."
The city manager has the authority to
spend up to $10,000 without commissioner
approval but Dowdell pointed to three
contracts that exceeded ,the $10,000
threshold.
"I made sure those companies did not

exceed $10,000," Bogan said.
As for his not hiring a financial
director he said that interim
finance director Theresa Moore
was on board and he felt she
needed a little time to get up to
speed in government finances.
"As far as Netquincy, we
inherited a mess. I have been
talking with the director and we
have encountered some obstacles
with TDS and others," Bogan
said.
In his defense, Bogan said he
believed he has made significant
improvements and that the
financial situation is better than it
was when he came aboard two
years ago.
"There are a lot things we need
to do better," Bogan said.


"The only thing I can ask you is
to take a look at where we are
now. Have you been happy with
what he's done in the past two
years. We took a chance to see if
it was working. Do you want to
go through another year of this?"
Dowdell said.
Mayor Andy Gay said he could
not support terminating Bogan's
contract and characterized the
motion as "a bomb dropped on
me tonight."
Bogan was given the
opportunity to re-negotiate his
contact but opted not take the
suggestion.
Bogan said that he has saved
the city thousands of dollars and

Times Editor
Gadsden County Sheriff Morris Young said officials
Share looking for the person or persons who are
responsible for inflicting knife wounds on a Gretna
woman Sunday afternoon.
The woman, who has not been identified, is still in a
local hospital and Young said she is not talking. He said
the woman has not been responsive to officers'
questions.
"We don't know what happened yet and until we are
able to talk with her, we are looking for a suspect. The
woman had puncture wounds to the chest and cut
wrists," Young said.
Authorities said that the woman was found
unconscious anid bleeding at the east entrance of Lake
Yvette Estates Sunday afternoon. Major Shawn Wood
said the woman is the mothe woman is the mother of five children and there
was a lot of concern about the welfare of the children,.
The children have since been found with a relative and
are safe.
Young said he wants to set the minds of the citizens
who live in the Lake Yvette area at ease. '
"We don't feel that there is any need for the people
who live in or near Lake Yvette to feel unsafe. It is our
opinion is that whatever happened basically involved
this woman," Young said.
Anyone who might have seen the woman's maroon
van in the Lake Yvette area between 1 p.m. and 4 p.m.
is asked to call 627-9233.


Sen. Bill Nelson pays a

call to Gadsden County


BY ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
Sen. Bill Nelson stopped briefly in
Gadsden County Tuesday morning for
one of his popular town hall meetings.
Nelson, who was casually dressed,
explained to the nearly 100 people
attending, that he was on his way to
tour the Apalachicola River.
"Alabama has joined Florida. The
water is important to all of us and the
critters that live on the river. It seems
that the three states cannot come to an
agreement and they want the Federal
government involved."
The water wars involve Florida,
Georgia, and Alabama and Georgia's
desire to dam up the river near Atlanta

The Florida Highway Patrol with assistance of
other state law enforcement agencies, the Quincy
Police Department and the Chattahoochee Police
Department conducted a sobriety checkpoint on
Thursday, May 22 . The sobriety checkpoint was on
Martin Luther King Street east of Atlanta street.
Law enforcement officers made 14 arrests during
the checkpoint.


By ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
At least seven people died in
automobile accidents in Gadsden
County so far this month.
Thursday night the Florida
Highway Patrol, the Quincy
Police Department, and the
Chattahoochee Police
Department teamed up for a
sobriety checkpoint.
Between 9 p.m. and 1 a.m. all
vehicles traveling east or west on
Martin Luther King, Jr. Blvd. at
Industrial Drive were stopped.
FHP Sgt. Brannon Snead said
the site was chosen based on
accidents and the number of
tickets written in the vicinity. By
the end of the night seven people


had been arrested on outstanding
warrants, two on drug arrests,
five had written warnings and
three faulty equipment citations
had been written.
Snead said the objective of the
checkpoint close to the Memorial
Day holiday was to deter DUI,
insure that drivers have a proper
drivers license, identify impaired
drivers before they are involved
in an accident, and check for
proper equipment.
The checkpoint begin at 9 p.m.
and within the first minute two
vehicles had been pulled over for
closer inspection. The driver of a
pickup truck, a Mexican male,
did not have a drivers license.. no

Sgt. Snead explained that in a
situation like this the driver is
arrested and detained for
immigration.
But Thusday nights arrest had a
twist.
One of the teenage passengers
became upset with the officers
and unleased a torrent of insults.
He was taken into custody and
charged with obstruction.
When the young man's mother


arrived, Sgt. Robert Mixon of
the Quincy Police Department
explained in Spanish the charges
and the circumstances. Capt.
Mike Burroughs, district
commander, said the young man
needed to be taught that he must
respect law enforcement officers.
The teen's mother and father
agreed that their son was out of
line and agreed to chastise him at
home.
"He, will still have to go before
the judge because he need to
learn a lesson," Capt. Burroughs
said.
A most unlucky young lady left


home to go to the store without
her license. Between the time she
left home and returned to
roadblock had been set up. She
had been issued a valid license,
good through 2010 but she did
not have it with her while she was
operating the vehicle.
"She has a license but when we
ran her information, it came back
with two warrants out of Leon
County," said Sgt. Troy Gilyard
of the Quincy Police Department
was he finished the paper work
before taking the woman to jail.
Shavone Grimes, who lives near
the checkpoint, said she was

that he has collected 'significant
amou ts of money.
"I hle considered it a an honor
to sele this government. I have

years and I have never taken a

appreciated the efforts of law
enforcement in her neighborhood.
"When I saw all of the blue
lights I thought something had
happened in the neighborhood.
When I found out what was
happening, I thought it was a
good thing. We have a lot of
drunk drivers out here and a lot of
speeders. I have kids and I want
them to be safe. I don't think the
checkpoint is an inconvenience at
all. Now if it had been 8 o'clock
in the morning when I was on my
way to work, it might have a
different attitude," Grimes said.
While officers were not giving

nights. I put my heart and soul in

the city and rounded to the
nearest 0.01 cent per kwh,"
McLean wrote.
He said that the energy
calculation is a real time
calculation.
The real time calculation
limited the possibility that the
adjustment will be paid by
someone other than the specific
customer using the fuel and
incurring the cost.
"Retroactive charging for fuel
cost that occurred 12 months, 24
months and 36 months in the past


fails to insure .the specific
customer pays for his or her use
of fuel unfairly shifts the cost to
others who did not incur the cost.
(There fore) retroactive charging
does not meet the purpose of the
fuel cost adjustment provision,"
McLean wrote, confirming the
verbal opinion he gave
commissioners on March 25.
Since the commission cannot
pass along the cost to individuals,
an alternative to get the money
could pass the cost thru as a
special adjustment through an


warnings or citation for no

educate drivers and passengers on
the importance of wearing

"This is also in the middle of
our nationwide Click It or Ticket
operation. This will be going on
through the Memorial Day
weekend and for a few days
afterward. We want people to
wear their seatbelts," Sgt. Snead
said.
Minutes later, a vehicle came
through the checkpoint with with
several women, two of whom
were hold small children on their

The problem, however, is that
damming the river will mean less
water downstream and could spell
disaster for the fishermen and
oystermen inApalachicola.
David Gobbeler was conceded
about health care and the high price of
insurance. He said that he and his wife
will have to pay nearly $20,000 per
year in insurance premiums if they
take a plan offered by a private
ordinance or resolution. The
accumulation of fuel cost is a cost
to the system, although it was not
anticipated or planned for by
staff.
McLean said that this has not
happened before because in the
past the contract with Progress
Energy contained payment
structure.
But at- the end of 2007 that
contract ended, it resulted in the
accumulation of fuel costs.
"The City Commission may
treat the unexpected accumulated


laps.
The officer gave a verbal
warning and the women placed
the children in the seatbelts.
Sometimes officers need a laugh
too.

came through the checkpoint

sprout out of the top of his

insurer. Both he and his wife will not
turn 65 for a year and they are caught
in a catch-22 situation.
-"The healthcare system is
completely upside down. There are 47
million Americans who do not have
health care. I have been working on
universal health care for the past
several years. What you raise is an
issue that's got to be solved," he told
Gobbeler.
It's the middle-income people who
are suffering most, he said.
fuel cost as a system expense or
assess the accumulated fuel cost
as a special assessment. The City
Commission clearly has this
authority.
The City Manager may not do
so without specific authority
authorization by the City
Commission," McLean wrote.
Earlier this year Bill Bogan,
then city manager, advised
commissioners that the accumulated
funds would be paid to Progress
Energy by passing the cost along
to the city's fuel customers.

Contemplation



Wasting away in Sangriaville


It's vacation time..I planned to take
vacation later this year and had my
tentative plans were to fly out of
Tallahassee and take a week to rest
and relax. But with gas steadily
rising and airline tickets going to
same route, I'm rethinking this
vacation stuff.
Sunday morning, the CBS show,
"Sunday Morning"
Had an interesting tongue-in-cheek
segment entitled "Staycation". The
premise was that you could just stay
at home for a vacation and pretend to
be on vacation.
At first I thought it was really funny.
Then I . looked at the concept
seriously. On further thought about
the "Staycation" it really didn't
sound so bad. I could save a lot of
money I thought and I wouldn't have
to leave home three hours to sit
around the airport.
The more I thought about the
"Staycation" the more the idea
appealed to me. I have to decide on a
theme for the week of my stay-at-
home vacation. I am toying with a
European vacation. My country of
choice is Spain in particular and the
city of Barcelona in particular.
About ten years ago I was in
Barcelona and I've always wanted to
go back. This year, with my stay-at-
home-vacation, I just might get to
revisit the city I so enjoyed.
The first thing I must do is change
.my house around a little. I'll turn my
dining room into one many colorful
sidewalk caf6s ,that Jine the plaza

While raising a new "thrown-away" puppy, I have
been reminded of many things owners tend to forget,
or never thought about. Our little girl is on her 3rd
collar since February, and 2nd weight rated leash.
She is growing so fast. I check with my fingers under
her collar every so many days. And, believe it or not,
I had neighbors who have neglected this and their
puppies died of strangulation. First they stop playing,
then stop eating, then drinking, then death. I can't
emphasized enough how important it is to keep
checking the collars until they are full grown.
I am still haunted by the memory of those suffering,
oxygen starved pups. I did save one, when the
neighbor asked my advice about her suffering
poodle. I checked the collar first, then gently
removed the embedded killer. The dog revived.
Kittens should NEVER have collars. They are
ridiculous and the kitty may disappear in distress so
you never know that you and the collar were
responsible (or irresponsible).
Another thing I learned the hard way - asphalt and
concrete paving are blistering hot. We wear shoes
and don't think about it. My dog, Luba, would stop
and go to a. grassy lawn to cool her paws. I thought
she was balking. After a few episodes I discovered
her pads were burning. She walked in the morning
and on shady pavement and on grass. We avoided the
road and sidewalks in the heat of the day. Go
barefoot and feel what they feel.
I have even seen parents dragging their fussy,
barefoot children across hot parking lots. I spoke to
one man who actually thanked me for pointing out
that his barefoot child was scorching her feet. It never
occurred to him.
And of course water is so important. I see water
pails turned over in every yard. I don't mind
reminding the owners that they have to keep those
pails filled. You can't "punish" a dog for knocking it
over - they dop't speak your language. Keep it filled
and a get a nice wide base container. Please, don't get
a pet if you can't provide the simple things like a
fitting collar, f6od, water bucket and equally
important, affection and attention.
Some how I end up with all the neglected ones.

am a tourist and watch travel shows
about Barcelona and the surrounding
to get me into the spirit of things.
As speaking of spirits, I will need to
prefect my Sangria making skills
before my stay-at-home date arrives.
Since I will be "traveling" alone I
won't have to worry about adjusting
my itinerary to accommodate anyone
else. I will rise from my (bedroom)
hotel room when I please and return
when I please.
My cell phone doesn't have
international calling, so I can just
turn it off.
My home phone will be on voice
mail for a week and I'll return calls
the same way I would have if I were
really out of town. I will use my
imagination making up some post
cards that I will send to family and
friends announcing that I am
enjoying my "Staycation" and I wish
they were with me.
I will eat from Spanish Restaurants
all week and make an effort to stay
away from the Spanish foods that I
have become accustomed to eating.
The only down side of my trip so far
will be the lack of photographs with
me in them. But since I'm imagining
a trip across the Atlantic Ocean, I can
imagine a few picture without much
of a stretch.
Yes, I am going to enjoy by trip back
to Barcelona. I will have to do a little
more tweaking to get it exactly the
way I want it, but I have a few
months with which to work.
This "Staycation" idea might just
work afterall.

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. it




It Wasn't Even My Class!


The first graduation I ever attended was
because my older brother was in it. I don't
think I volunteered to go. After I realized
you had to sit there and listen to people do
nothing but talk I kicked myself for such a
stupid mistake. I should have phoned in
sick!
I don't remember one thing that was
said. The chair was hard. I couldn't see
much because the lady in front of me had
one of those "built-up" hair dos. Mother
was sitting between me and David. so I
couldn't give him a few licks to break the
monotony. And get this, after they had
talked for what seemed like about seven
hours, they then called out every senior's
name and had them march across the stage
in those funny gowns and caps.
I figured this graduation thing was'
mostly for those who were graduating.
Mother cried a little when Leon shook.
Mr. Warren's hand and headed back
toward his seat. Dad just sat there and
stared straight ahead. If he was feeling
anything you sure couldn't tell it. I didn't
shed no tears. I was just hoping they'd get
down to Mike Vaughn and Ann Wilkinson
and bring this marathon to an end. I had to
go to the bathroom.
I didn't know these people anyway. I was
finishing up the seventh grade and
thankfully you didn't "graduate" in junior
high. We figured getting out of school for
the summer was reward enough. If Leon
didn't hang out with them or if they didn't
go to the Baptist Church, they were
foreigners to me.
I quit drawing moustaches on the
featured pictures in the program and
glanced up at the stage. I did actually
know a few of them. Larry Byrd moved in
just a couple of years earlier. He fit right in
with Leon's group. He was better looking
than most, had a great flat top and he was
a good football player. He and Tommy
Thompson tied for the best smile in the
class. I remember Tommy could throw a
baseball harder and further than anyone I
had ever seen. He lived with his
grandmother over by Bethel College.
Morris Beadles' daddy worked up town.
Morris wore his hair slicked back and I
often wished my parents would let me
grow my hair out like that. Barbara Booth
was Bo's older sister. I'd see her all the
time when I went over to play with Bo.
She was quiet and I reckon had too much
going on to spend any time with us.
They would hold those "Golden Glove"
boxing matches at Kenny Bouldin's house.
They had a little ring marked off upstairs.
I was way too young to box but I
remember Leon was pretty good. I reckon
he ought to have been. He practiced on me
and David Mark everyday! ,
Judy Abernathy's daddy owned the
hardware store. She and Mary Lois
Basford spent a lot of time in the summer
at the swimming pool. They drank cokes
and munched on Zag Nuts while they
worked on their tans. Karen Webb lived
just down the road from us. I thought she
was so pretty. And her older brother was a
riot.
I actually leaned forward in my seat. I


knew more of these folks than I realized!
Larry Black was big in the FFA. He
could grow off those blue ribbon calves.
Patti Houston's dad ran the store where we
bought our baseball cards. She would look
over your shoulder as you opened your
pack to see if you got Mickey Mantle or
Ted Williams. I saw my first television
show (I've Got A Secret) down at Richard
Gregg's house. Emily Field had a brother
that was brilliant. The first pitcher I faced
in Little League was Dennis Coleman. The
only guys in the world that could throw
harder than him were Bob Feller and
Tommy Thompson. I stood in that batters
box and didn't have a chance. I thought
my heart was going to pound itself right
out of my chest!
I was looking for the back of Jackie
Burns' head. I was craning my neck now,
trying to see around "Miss Hair Do of the
Evening". Of the entire class Jackie was
the one who spent the most time with me.
He was always at our house. And when
Leon wouldn't want me to tag along,
Jackie would say, "Aw, let him come,
we're not doing anything anyway." I tell
you, those were magic words to a little
brother that wanted so much to be like the
"big" guys. To this day I still thank God
for Jackie Burns.
Marilyn Lewis was the funniest girl in
this class. She brought joy and sunshine
like the clouds bring rain. Tom Posto.n
could out run a late freight. And he could
catch any football that got near him.
Bobby C. Melton , was another great
football player. His little brother was in
our class. I remember mostly that Bobby
C. was soft spoken and he always had
something nice to say to me.
Daveeda Blumenthal had the best name
in the class. Tommy Fields bought me a
milkshake once after a ball game. Doug
Hickman helped me with an English
report. And I wish I had a nickel for every
baseball, football and/or basketball game I
played down in Paul David Campbell's
back yard.
I dreamed of going on a date with Judy
Seratte. Of course, I'd never tell anybody
that! Butch Dickson was the Fonzie of his
day. Joe Sasser's older sister, Annette, was
a part of this class. Barbara Enoch was
always so polite to me. And I kept
thinking Nicky Joe ought to be here...,.
I forgot about the hard chair and the
insufferable heat. I knew these guys! So
many of them had impacted my young
life! They might have been five years
older but that didn't matter. And nlone of
them were thinking about me on this night.
That didn't matter. We had "shared time"
together. We were forever linked. And,
forty-eight years later, the memories are
still vivid, the helping hand so many gave
, me still appreciated, the good vibes still
linger....
That night changed the way I've
attended graduations forever.

Most Respectfully,

Leon's Little Brother

Doc was out back of his place the other
day, pruning his grapevines with the kind
of precision only a semi-retired practicing
surgeon can do. Steve was standing
nearby, sipping coffee and watching Doc
work. Doc makes good coffee.
There was a rasping sound then,
dopplering over Doc's yard from east to
west. Doc, without looking up,, said,
"Morning Wheezer."
"Didn't catch that, Doc."
"That's ol' Wheezer," Doc said, waving
his hand up toward the heavens. "Didn't
you hear him? Mourning dove. Lives here
and in the yards on either side.
Something's wrong with his voice."
"Ah," said Steve, the cowboy
philosopher. He nodded and tried to look
wise, but only managed a tilt-headed owl
look. But at least he does it well.
Doc sat back and smiled up at Steve.
"Ol' Wheeze there, he's been around for
three years I know of. When he flies over,
I always say hello to him. Must be getting
old, talking to doves, huh?"
"What's wrong with his voice?" Steve
asked.
"I'm no vet," said Doc, "but if you'll
go catch him, we can check him out."


They both laughed.
"The only reason I know he's a he is
because I saw him courting this cute little
lady dove this spring. She thought his
raspy ol' voice was charming and
wonderful," Doc said.
"He goes over on Vivian's roof
sometimes, and then back over to Rob's
place, but mainly he lives on my roof and
in the tree branches."
Steve owled up his face and was
philosophizing real hard, as anyone could
see.
"Whatcha thinking , Steve?"
"Just occurred to me, Doc," he said.
"You've learned a lot about this bird, and
have made him your friend, in a way. And
you've been able to follow his actions and
family life and everything. And none of
that would've been possible if ol' Wheezer
didn't have a speech impediment. Without
that, he'd be just another bird. Looks like
one time when a handicap made life a bit
more interesting."
"It happens that way sometimes," Doc
agreed. �

So, how have you been?.
Long time no see, it seems
like. Appropriately enough, at
the onsest of hurricane season
I've been in the midst of a
whirlwind of my own. It's
evidenced by the stack of
papers strewn about my office
and the general assumption
that my brain will explode
soon - if there is a God.
But onto the real thing:
Hurricane season.
I know this will sound odd.
I am one of those people who
actually enjoys stocking up for
hurricane season.
(Not ready to move into
backwoods survivalist mode
just yet, but the higher gas
prices get, the more appealing
it seems. I could pitch a tent.
Live off the land. Drive a horse
instead of a car. Yeah, RIGHT -
I see that happening.)
So the kickoff of tax-free
sales on hurricane
preparedness supplies is great
news to me. Not that I want a
hurricane to -come here. Or
anywhere.
But just in case.
I'm gonna get a Grundig.
Now. There are several types
of Grundig radios - and other
electronics made by the
German company - but the one
I like is the Grundig FR300
emergency AM/FM crank
shortwave weather TV/radio
and light. It will also charge a
cell phone. .All that on three
AAA batteries.
What's not to like?
Non-perishable foods, here I
come - Vienna sausage.
Granola bars. Trail mix. And
most importantly, peanut
butter. Canned fruits and
vegetables, jugs of water and
instant coffee. Blankets galore
and enough rain jackets to keep
Noah high and dry.
I don't know WHY I'm that
way - genetics? Offspring of a
woman whose mother was a
Girl Scout leader and whose
father was a farmer and a man
raised in the coal-stained hills
of Kentucky?
Well, there's theh
camaraderie factor - you're in
line at Wal-Mart, look over at
somebody who has a really
outstanding lantern in his or
her cart -' clearly, there's a
must-have conversation
waiting to happen.
Then too, I guessstocking up
on supplies live the above-
mentioned makes me feel a bit
better, a bit more in control, let
. the wind blow - and I like a
good, non-life-threatening
thunderstorm - while watching
a conical shape move across
the TV screen. Whatever.
I'm not invincible - even I
know that - but having supplies
ready makes me feel, well,
ready. Come what may.
So blow, wind, blow - I'm
gonna get a Grundig.
Have a good week.

The bream are biting...


Seminole Ramlins
All week long we have had very good luck on
Big Red Bellies on Crickets. Each day that the
wind would be under 10 mph you could catch lots
of Bream. Course we ain't had that, many days
lately. If Georgia Power would put up a double
line off those big wind mills on Booster Club
Road, they would pay off good fashion.
Our old and good friend, Snake Womble fished
Btfue Gil two days this week 1 limit of Big Red

35 Crappie were taken one day on Jigs and 40

Blountstown, FL on January 14, 2007. The'photo
shows 10 Alligaters laying on one log. The huge
cypress trees and the gators just make a great
nature picture.
Facks 'on Flag Day, 1776, General George
Washington commissioned Philidelphia seam-

Fishing regulations at Lake Seminole

Florida and Georgia recently cancelled a longstanding agreement that
allowed both states' resident senior citizens to go freshwater fishing or
hunting in either state without purchasing licenses. However, special reg-
ulations adopted by the two states for Lake Seminole in Jackson County
and the St. Mary's River in Nassau and Baker counties remain in effect.
The regulations spell out that fishermen under age 16, those legally
licensed in either state, exempt anglers or those who have obtained a free
permanent license can fish in either water body.
The waters of Lake Seminole where Florida anglers may fish are gen-
erally defined as all waters south to the Jim Woodruff Dam and east to the
area known as the Booster Club, and extending northwest across the lake
to the tip of land at the junction of the Flint and Chattahoochee rivers.

South Springs: From 2004 to 2008 - progress or headache?


By ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

Editor's Note: This is the sec-
ond in a three part series on the
South Springs Development.


In an effort to bring City
Commissioners up to date on the
South Springs Development
Phase One, City Manager Bill

detailing what has transpired
with development sine 2004.
This is the chronological

proper notification was however
done for Wal-mart.)

ter from DCA returning the
Public Education Facilities
Element (PEFE) comprehensive
amendment that was adopted on
April 23, 2008 and submitted to
DCA on April 29, 2008.
(Thought this letter references
PEFE, it is relevant to South
Springs because PEFE has to be
found in compliance and
approved by DCA before we can
submit any large scale amend-
ment that results in density
increase.) Copy of e-mail
exchanges between staff and
DCA is being provided to give
further information and clarifi-
cation.
*May 12, 2008: received
from the County a Public School
Facilities Element-Waiver appli-
cation form submitted to DCA
seeking a waiver of the PEFE
amendment countywide from
DCA.
This waiver, if granted by
DCA, will allow all municipali-
ties within Gadsden County to
submit large scale comprehen-
sive elements without waiting
for the PEFE to be approved by
DCA.
This will allow the City to
submit the DCA all large scale
land use comprehensive amend-
ment without delay.
Notes provided at the end of
the chronology included the fol-
lowing:
1.The large scale land use


amendment was adopted
because it was agreed by DCA
that both Wal-mart and South
Springs constitute no density
increase, since they were both
annexed into the City of Quincy
with the same or similar land-
use designations as the county.
2. Wal-mart was annexed as a
commercial land use designa-
tion and after annexation, proper
notification was sent to all rele-
vant State agencies for docu-
mentation and recognition as a
commercial entity within the
City of Quincy. Wal-mart, there-
fore, constitutes' no density
increase.
3. South Springs was
annexed as a Planned Unit
Development (PUD) similar in
density to the county's designa-
tion of USA, there was no noti-
fication sent out for the docu-
mentation and recognition as an
entity within the City of Quincy.
Staff discovered on April 25,
2008 as part of normal inquiry
prior to the transmittal of the
large scale land use amendment
to all relevant agencies.
South Springs will constitute
a density increase and therefore
the submission of the large scale
amendment was withheld pend-
ing the time that the process is
complete.

Next week: Both - sides,
NFEDC and the people who live
along Cox Lane, will have the
opportunity to explain the stand
of the issues.

Gadsden County graduates look to the future


By ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

County Commission
Chairman Ed Dixon issued
a challenge to the 2008
graduating class of West
Gadsden High School dur-
ing commencement exer-
cises Thursday night.
"Know who you are," he
said, "and know who you
owe."
He told the 56 graduates
that they must be trustwor-
thy, honest and responsible
even when no one is look-
ing. He said they must do
the right thing because it is
the right thing to do.
"When the lights are off,
who are you?" he asked.
Dixon encouraged stu-
dents to give back to the
community as well as the


students they are leaving
behind. "There are
members of the Class of
2009, 2010, and 2011 sit-
ting in the audience tonight
and they will be watching
to see what you will do.
The person who helped
you wants you to help
someone else," he said.
This was the "first West
Gadsden High School
class to graduate from the
new school and valedicto-
rian Silvana Barrera urged
tern to hold on to their
dreams.
"Find your passion and
follow it. We can change
the world but it is impor-
tant to enjoy the .journey.
Remember to love and be
loved and to laugh
always," he said.
"To our families and teach-


ers who had faith in us
even. when we doubted
ourselves, we thank you,
Barrera said.
Ariele Branson, salutatori-
an, also thanked the teach-
ers, families, and friends
for their support through-
out the years.
"It has been a long journey
for all of us and it has been
a hard one," she said,
Branson also issued a chal-
lenge to the Class of 2009
after she told them that
they were all superb stu-
dents.
"You are a force than can-
not be stopped. Hold fast
to your dreams," she said.


By Leslie Roberts
Times General Manager

It was standing room only
May 23 at the East
Gadsden High School
gymnasium.
Parents, friends and family
members turned out in full
force to see the Class of
2008 graduate.
Class Salutatorian NiAra
Randolph urged fellow
students to believe in
themselves.
"At Gretna Elementary I
was taught to expect noth-


ing but the best for
myself," she said. "I had to
overcome hardships, chal-
lenges.
During the last eight years,
I've learned the power of
prayer."
The most important princi-
ple, she says, is to remem-
ber that if she "is persist-
ent, I will achieve all of my
goals. Excellence is never
an accident."
A whopping 178 students
graduated last week, the
highest number of gradu-
ates in the county's history.


"Families and parents - I
am truly proud of you for
the graduates you have
produced," Gadsden County
Schools Superintendent
Reginald-James said. "Last
year, we graduated the
largest percentage ever of
students since the state
started keeping records.
I'm proud to tell you
tonight the 2008 class has
surpassed that record."

Florida State University nation's best in bridging racial graduation gap


By Jill Elish
May 2008

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. --
While many colleges and uni-
versities are struggling with a
so-called graduation gap,
Florida State University is
receiving national attention for
its record high graduation rate of
African-American students.

More than 72 percent of
African-Amenican students --
who make up 12 percent of
FSU's student body -- graduate
within six years, thanks largely
to the efforts of FSU's Center
for Academic Retention and
Enhancement (CARE).
Nationally, fewer than half of
African-American students who
enroll -in college graduate within


six years.
"We don't have a secret for-
mula," said FSU Provost and
Executive Vice President for
Academic Affairs Lawrence G.
Abele. "What we have is a com-
prehensive program that is dedi-
cated to student success. A pro-
gram like ours involves a major
commitment by the university,
but the return on our investment
is huge."
FSU's success was highlight-
ed in a recent report released by
Education Sector, a nonpartisan
think tank based in Washington.
"Graduation Rate Watch:
Making Minority Student
Success a Priority" singled out
FSU, remarking that no other
large public universities have
been able to match its success.
"Many aren't even close," the


report said.
The Education Sector report
used federal data to identify.uni-
�versities with small or nonexist-
ent gaps between the graduation
rates of white students and black
students as well as those with
large gaps.
Following the release of the
report, news media, including
U.S. News and World Report,
the ( Chronicle of Higher
Education, Diverse Issues in
Higher Education and the
Tampa Tribune, followed up
with stories about FSU's ability
to buek the national trend with
CARE. The center provides
preparation, orientation and aca-
demic and personal support to
students who are the first in their
family to attend college or. face
other economic, cultural or edu-


national circumstances. CARE
begins reaching out to students
in middle and high school and
assists those who choose to
attend Florida State until they
graduate.
"Not all of our African-
American students participate
directly in CARE, nor are all
CARE students African-
American," said Dean of
Undergraduate Studies Karen
Laughlin. "But the efforts of this
program also have a ripple effect
throughout the campus, creating
an atmosphere that is known to
be supportive for first-genera-
tion and minority students."
Those who participate in
CARE have the benefit of strong
peer mentoring; small sections
of select freshman-level courses
in English, math, history, speech


and literature; a study lab staffed
with about 25 tutors focusing on
English, math and the sciences;
ongoing academic advising and
personal counseling; and advo-
cacy and referral services.
The CARE program is open
to all students who meet certain
criteria. About 65 percent of its
participants are African-
American.
"Students participating in
CARE typically have socio-eco-
nomic needs and challenges that
must be addressed if they are to
be successful," said Angelad
Richardson, director of CARE.
"This is why it is important that
institutions not just recruit this
population of students but also
maintain a viable support sys-
tem that provides them with a
comfort level in an unfamiliar


environment. That is what
CARE does. Our center is a
home base where students know
that people are genuinely con-
cerned for them. CARE takes a
holistic approach to working
with students focusing on their
academic, social, financial and
personal needs."
As a result, CARE students
are not just completing the
coursework necessary for gradu-
ation, they are flourishing and
distinguishing themselves as
undergraduate leaders and
scholars, Laughlin said. In addi-
tion, FSU's African-American
graduation rate now exceeds
that of its white students: 69 per-
cent of whites graduate within
six years.

Bainbridge College graduates over 250, including first in new nursing degree program


Drawing on the wisdom of
Gecge Wishington, Bainbridge
College's Graduation speaker
inspired his listeners with pos-
itive and productive ways of
living.
Among those 1,100 listen-
ers were the first graduates of
the Associate Degree of
Nursing (ADN) Program that
began in 2006.
Dr. James A. Burran, who
retired at the end of February
as Dalton State College presi-
dent, focused his remarks on
the book, Geoge Washington's


Code of Civility and Decent
Behavior in Company and
Conversation.
He quoted several of the
book's 110 maxims that
Washington learned as a youth
about how to treat others and
how to practice self-control.
Before becoming Dalton
State's president in 1995, Dr.
Burran served as a history fac-
ulty member, registrar, vice
president for academic affairs,
and acting president at
Abraham Baldwin Agricultural
College.


He was introduced by
Bainbridge College (BC)
President Dr. Tom Wilkerson,
with whom he had worked
almost 25 years in the
University System of Georgia
(USG).
For the May 9 graduation at
Decatur County Memorial
Coliseum Regent Doreen
Poitevint of Bainbridge
brought greetings from the
USG Board of Regents. She
serves as the regent for 2nd
District.
Also on the program were


Cynthia Davis, professor of
nursing and wellness, who
was parade marshal; Pastor
Andy McQuaid of Grace
Church, Bainbridge, who gave
the invocation and benedic-
tion; Student Government
Association President Gabriel
Broxton of Donalsonville,
who spoke, and Vice Pre ent
of Academic Aff.ith. Dr.
Mariahm Dittmann, who recog-
nized faculty and honor gradu-
ates and assisted Preident
Wilkerson in the conferring of
degrees.


With BC since January, this
was Dr. Dittmann's first BC
graduation.
The BC Foundation gave a
reception after the ceremonies.
Assisting with it and with
graduation were BC
Ambassadors and Student
Ambassadors.
For the second year the col-
lege prepared coloring pages
of academic regalia and BC
scenes for younger members
in the audience to enjoy with
crayons provided by Victims'
Services.


The college had 259 gradu-
ates with about 130 participat-
ing in the ceremonies.
Among them are students
in the first two cohorts of the
ADN program.
The first cohort completed
their studies after graduation of
2007 and received their pins
last August; they were eligible
for graduation this year.
The second cohort com-
pleted studies this year .and
received their pins in cere-
monies May 3.

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

This old

Group hopes to restore Gretna's 100-year-old schoolhouse


By ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

Gretna may be one of the few
towns in the nation with a school
that has never had a graduating
class. The school remained open for
27 years but there is no person,
living or dead, who can lay claim to
graduating from the Gretna School.
There is an easy explanation why
no graduation ever occurred: the
school stopped at llth grade.
"It just stopped at llth grade.
When students got to their senior
year, they had to find another school
to attend," said Sterling Watson, a
member of the Trustees whose aim is
to restore the structure. He
speculated that the reason for the
unusual cutoff might have been
political.
There were 19 principals who led
the school from 1908 to 1935. One
of the most famous principals, 1910f-
.1911, was R.A. Gray, the longest
serving Secretary of State (193Q-
1961) in Florida. k
There were three departments that
made up the school: primary,
intermediate and high school.
Records indicate that the school year
varied from 6 to 8 months. No
principal ever made more than $135
a year and no teacher made more
than $80 per year. At its peak, the
school had 116 students and 15
teachers.
Eventually, enrollment dropped and
the school went the way of many
schools today. By 1935 student
enrollment had dwindled to 31
students and two teachers. The
Board of Public Instruction decided
that it was too expensive to keep the
school open and it was phased out,
the students were bussed to Quincy
for further education. Last year the
trustees, under the non-profit name
of W.P. Humphrey Club applied for a
$50,000 grant to begin restoring the
structure. The grant application
placed 10th in overall state rankings,
but the trustees were told that the


State only funded the top six. [
"We hope that next year we will
get the funding," Watson said, who
is secretary of the non-profit
organization. In the meantime, they
are looking for ways to raise money
for the restoration. They would like
for the public to be an important
part of the fundraising and the
asking for donations.
"We already have a community
support. We've gotten support
letters from County Manager
Marlon Brown, Gretna City
Manager Antonio Jefferson, and
Sheriff Morris Young in support of
the project," Watson said.
When restored the trustees want
'the site to be for community use.
Watson said he sees it as a place
similar to the Women's Club in
Quincy where wedding receptions
and other public events are held.
On the first floor of the two-story
structure are three classrooms.
Currently one of the classrooms has
been turned into a kitchen. -The i
second floor houses one large room
that has a two-step elevated stage on
the south wall.
The upstairs was used chapel
services by the students and when
the school closed it was used for
community dances and minstrel
shows. For many years the Gretna
Town Council met in the building
and the women in Gretna often used
upstairs for quilting parties and the
Cub Scouts once met in the building.
At one point the Gadsden County
Health Department had a full clinic
on the first floor. At one point it was
the meeting place of the Gretna
Volunteer Fire Department. An old
black board still holds the names of
some of the men who volunteered
and their shifts.
In April 1948 the building was
deeded by the Board of Public
Instruction to a group of trustees for
the Gretna Community Club, this
group was the forerunner of the
current W.P. Humphrey Club. In
1969, when the structure needed a


facelift, many individuals gave
donations to make the needed
repairs. In June .1995 the building
was deeded to the Gadsden Shriners'
who used it as a meeting place. In
August 2002, the building was
deeded .back to the Club and has
been.
"I just can't let go. I'm a trustee
and my father was a trustee before
me. It's (the building) just been here
so long. My mother, Sarah Margaret
Watson Johnson taught school here,"
said Alexander Johnson who is the
president of the Humphrey Club.
Walter Watson, Sterling's father, is
vice president.
Both up stairs and downstairs have
porches that front the street and
there is ample space in the yard for
parking and games of low
organization.
"I can just see children on that
stage performing for their parents
and others," Watson said.
The organization was named for
Humphrey because he was


considered by many to be the
patriarch of Gretna. He was a
merchant, blacksmith, and developer.
It was Humphrey and his wife Sarah
and J.W. Mahaffey and his wife
Addie who sold the land for the
school for the sum of $100.
The Club has received it's 501C3
designation and will soon, the
trustees hope, get the designation to
the National Historic Registry. The
site is already on the Master File of
Historic Site in Florida.
Trustees say they don't want to see
the historic building and its
significance to the Town of Gretna
and to Gadsden County to be
forgotten.
To donate to the Renovation of the
Old Gretna School House, send tax-
deductible contributions to the P.W.

Looking for a spicy summer treat? Try crawfish bisque


Crawfish Bisque


2 gallons water
1/4 cup salt
1/4 cup original Tabasco�
brand pepper sauce
10 pounds live crawfish
Stuffing:
1 1/2 pounds peeled crawfish
tails
6 tablespoons butter
1 cup finely chopped onion
1/2 cup finely chopped green
bell peppers
1/2 cup finely chopped celery
1/4 cup finely chopped green
onions
2 teaspoons mince parsley
2 teaspoons minced garlic
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons original Tabasco
brand pepper sauce, or to taste
Icup plus 1/2 cup fine dried
bread crumbs
1 egg lightly beaten
Bisque:
6 tablespoons vegetable oil
6 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 cup chopped onions
Icup chopped green bell
peppers
1 teaspoon minced garlic
Reserved crawfish fat
6 cups reserved stock (from
boiling the peelings, etc.)
2 tablespoons tomato paste
1 pound peeled crawfish tails
1 1/4 teaspoons salt
2 teaspoons original Tabasco�
brand pepper sauce
1/4cup chopped green onions
2 tablespoons chopped fresh
parsley


Combine the water, salt and
Tabasco sauce in a boiling pot
large enough to accommodate the
crawfish. When the water comes
to a boil, carefully add the live
crawfish. Return to a boil and
cook for 3 minutes. Remove from
heat, cool, and strain. Cool the
crawfish to room temperature.
Peel the tails (you should end
up with 2 1/2 pounds peeled
crawfish tails), remove the fat
from the heads (put in a separate
container), and reserve 50 to 60
of the largest heads. Set aside the
peeled crawfish and the crawfish
fat.
Clean the heads by snipping off
the eyes and mouth section, then
clean out the shells, rinsing well
in cool water. Drain on paper
towels and set aside.
For the stock:
Crush the remaining heads, the
peelings and claws, and put in a
large pot with 3. quarts water.
Bring to a boil, then reduce the
heat and simmer for 30 minutes.
Remove from the heat and cool.
Strain through a fine-mesh sieve
and reserve 6 cups. Set aside.
For the stuffing:
Finely chop the crawfish tails or
pulse them two to three times in a
food processor, and set aside.
Heat the butter in a large
saucepan over medium heat. Add
the onions, bell peppers, celery,
greeiq onions, garlic, and parsley.
Cook, stirring, until the
vegetables are soft and lightly
golden, 5 to 6 minutes.
Add the chopped crawfish tails
and cook, stirring, for 3 minutes.
Remove from heat. Add the salt


and Tabasco sauce. Add 1 cup of
the bread crumbs and the egg,
and stir to mix. The mixture will
be thick. Set aside to cool.
Preheat the oven to 375 F.
When the crawfish mixture has
cooled, stuff each crawfish head
with a heaping teaspoon (more or
less depending on the size of the
head) and arrange them in a
shallow baking pan. Generously
dust the stuffed crawfish heads
with the remaining 1/2 cup bread
crumbs, patting the bread crumbs
gently into the stuffing.
Bake the heads until the bread
crumbs are lightly golden, about
20 minutes. Remove from the
oven and set aside.
For the bisque:
Combine the oil and flour in a
large, heavy pot or Dutch oven
over medium heat. Stirring
constantly, make a roux the color
of peanut butter. Add the onions,
bell peppers and garlic. Cook,
stirring, until the vegetables are
soft, about 5 minutes.
Add the crawfish fat, reserved
stock, tomato paste, salt and
Tabasco sauce and stir to blend.
Bring to a boil, then reduce the
heat to medium-low and simmer
for 1 hour, stirring occasionally.
Add the crawfish tails, the
stuffed crawfish heads, green
onions and parsley. Cook for 8
minutes, stirring very gently so as
not to break up the stuffed heads.
To serve, mound a cup of
steamed or boiled white long-
grain rice in a soup bowl, ladle
some of the bisque over the rice,
and include several heads per
bowl. Makes about 8 servings.


This crawfish bisque works as either an appetizer or an entree.
Recipe courtesy Tabasco.

verse of the week:
And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men:
Col 3:23 (KJV)

L -God wants us to be diligent in
all that we do. We need to think
of others and not think of
ourselves. There is a greater
reward when we please God not
others. Work until it is complete
with your entire heart. Do your
best.
God is pleased when we work
to give him the glory. We should
always be humble and not
boasting in ourselves. Sometimes
we might not see the reward here
Rwon earth but inheaven we will
receive our greater reward.
FamLy Thme Ta his week:

Think of each other when doing a task this week as a Famir.
