suit filed


against


Quincy


city official


By ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

A federal lawsuit against Quincy, City
Commissioner Sherrie Taylor was thrown out
last Friday.
Jack McLean, former city attorney and
interim city manager, said Federal Judge
Robert Hinkle gave a sweeping verdict in
factor of the cit.
"He essentially said there was no violation of
the Equal Protection Clause, there was no
defamation and no .interference with contract
claims. The most important thing in this is that
this is behind us and we didn't violate any
federal or state law," McLean said.
The case, which was filed last year by Sarah
Locke, former manager of Gadsden Arms
Apartments, was scheduled to go to trial next
week. Locke had alleged that Taylor interfered
with her ability to perform Yer duties and
apartment manager and that Taylor led a
campaign of harassment, intimidation, and
defamation.
"I stood in representation of my constituents
and was was sued for it. I was trying to do
what was. best for a lot of the people in my
district. My only aim was to make sure that
they were treated fairly. I thank God that He
saw me through this ordeal," Taylor said of the
case.
The complaint was filed in May of 2007
suing Taylor in her capacity as Mayor of the
City of Quincy. Locke was asking for $75,000
not including costs and interest.
"As far ,as we're concerned it's over,"
McLean said.


Gravediggers make


discovery


Jacksonville woman's body found near Stewart Street Elementary School


By ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
Grave diggers at Sunnyvale
Cemetery Tuesday morning noticed a
vehicle in a wooded area south of the
cemetery. When officers from the
Quincy Police Department arrived,
what they found was unnerving.


The body of a Jacksonville woman,
51-year-old Linda Boone, was in the
vehicle. Chief Gerald McSwain said it
appeared that the woman had been
dead for several days.
"We don't have very much to go on.
The Florida Department of Law
Enforcement (FDLE) crime unit came
over to process the scene," he said. '
"We're going to have to rely on the


autopsy because from what we could
see there was no trauma to the body.
When we found her she was reclined
in the seat. We do feel there was some
depression," McSwain said.
He said Boone's family had been
notified and was enroute to Quincy
Tuesday afternoon. McSwain .said if
the woman, had any connection to
Quincy the family was not aware of it.


Just hox Boone ended up at the dead
end of South Stewart Street is a
mystery. The area is not one that is
easily accessed. Boone's vehicle was
near he wood line facing east near an
area where Waste Pro keeps a supply
of dumpsters..
Anyone with information in this case
is asked to call the Quinc\ Police
Department at 627-7111.

By ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
The Board of County

Quincy Commission officially

names McLean interim manager


'By ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

Quincy city commissioners
made it official Tuesday after-
noon when they voted to make
Jack McLean interim city man-
ager not to exceed 90 days.
McLean resigned as city attor-
ney several months ago when he
and the commission could not
reach a salary package that was
acceptable to all.
He came back this week to serve
because, he said, he has a deep
desire to help the city and the
people to whom he has frown
close in the nearly 10 years he
worked here in his capacity as
attorney.
Mclean replaced former City


Manager Bil Bogan whose con-
tract was terminated during the
May 20 meeting.
McLean accepted the interim
position and said the first thing
he intended to do is to make sure
the city gets on sound financial
footing as quickly as possible.
He will, he said, get a handle on
Netquincy and the city's
telecommunications depart-
ment.
With the special meeting over,
commissioners went directly
into a workshop to determine
what qualifications they will
look for in a new city manager.
All agreed that the person
should have a minimum of five
years experience as a city man-
ager of top level governmental


experience. While there is no
immediate urgency to hire a
manager, commissioners want
to conduct a nationwide search
and begin advertising as quickly
as possible.
Commissioners axed the idea of
hiring a consulting firm or head-
hunters to find viable candidates
for city manager.
Mayor Andy Gay said that he
favored the commissioners tak-
ing an active role in determining
a manager who will be best for
the city and in the best interest
of the citizens.
Commissioners also agreed that
the successful candidate should
be a resident of the City of
Quincy.

Contemplation



Take heed hurricane season is

upon us


Sunday, June 1, marked the beginning of
hurricane season. I hope that people will
take this seriously and begin to make
preparations. Weather people do not tell
the public to prepare for storms because
they want to scare you.
They're not kidding when they suggest
that you buy extra batteries, water and
canned goods. You must be prepared to
live on your own for at least three days.
They say three days because it might
take that long for help to arrive.
There will be help on the way but there
are no guarantees' when or how much.
Last year we were told by then Red
Cross director Chris Floyd that we
prepare to be on our own for at least 72
hours, and that's being generous. He said
that while Tallahassee would come our
rescue (sooner or later) we should not
count on anyone coming hours after
storm passes.
His advice was for us to take care of
ourselves first. Taking, care of your self
involves making sure that you have
enough provisions (food and otherwise)
for you and your family. The days of
people risking their lives for you and
yours are over.
That's not to be mean but the days when
help organizations hit the road before the
rain from a hurricane had stopped are a
thing of the past. Big trucks carrying.
water and food will be coming but not
the same way as in the past. That's


because people ignored the warnings and
opted to sit on their duffs and wait for
someone to bring in food, water, band
aids and whatever they needed but were
too irresponsible to buy before the storm
made landfall.
I can hear it now from people who don't
believe, anything. They love to say that
no hurricane is going to hit here because
we're too far inland. Well, we're really
not that far inland. Some may remember
Hurricane Kate that came through in the
mid-80s and did quite a bit of damage.
Some residents were without power for a
week or more. Many of them were not
prepared but help for them and came
quickly.
Those days, my fellow citizens, are over.
Here are a few reasons why emergency
management people have taken a second
look:
*It's very expensive.
*People purposely don't take the
warnings seriously and don't stock up on
necessities. That doesn't mean people
who lose all of their possession or find
themselves in homes that are unsafe.
*People who are not touched by
hurricanes take unfair advantage of the
system.
Please stock up for hurricane season and
make sure the elderly or sick people in
your family are cared for. It isn't a matter
of if Gadsden County will be hit by a
hurricane, it's when.


After hearing what he says was the
voice of God telling him that if he
entered competition at age 55 ( 6
years ago), he would be champion.
Grandmaster Johnny Lee Burns has
since been undefeated for 6 'straight
years, via fatih in that voice. He is a'
100% Disabled Vet, with injuries
that show on x-rays.
On May 24, 2008, he won every
division (By walk-over) at the 26th
Annual Open Karate Tournament for
Youth Foundation in Tallahassee, FL
by Professor Gallop Franklyn. "I
should make it into Heaven! I have
only told six little white lies in 6
years each time that I won the
Gerorgia, Florida, Alabama Karate
(Masters, Superheavyweight Senior
Division) Title, I said that I had
retired? I lied, and. I am ashamed of
myself, but each time That I tried to
remain in retirement, someone
would say something or do some-
thing to anger me (as calm as I ams
as humbe as I am).
Now, I am still undefeated; indeed,
some of their best champions have
lost to me, and I have been nominat-
ed for the Shinjimasu
Internationational Hall of Fame.
This time, I asked to fight younger
masters, but every last one of them
refused to register for the competi-
tion. I let them know ahead of time
that I had been kicked during train-
ing by one of their peers there was
no apology, accident or not!
So, I saved the matter for the tourna-
ment! Every master there backed
down, but the one who kicked me
came out of uniform, claiming an
injury!
Believe it or not, after six years as
champion, I will now retire from
competition fighting just two months
short of my 61st birthday. Even a
strong tree opposite an obstacle. My
age is finally an obstacle, but I
fought a good fight... I ran a good
race, and I .remain romantic.
Grandmaster Burns now wishes to


apologize to all the great competitors
who were injured during matches
with; for like him, they too were
reaching for the height in life which
defined the honor that comes from
the sacrifices made in life for sake of
the recognition of efforts that defy
the limitations that humans are
forced to endure. He has taught free
karate schools for over 34 years, and
he has fought at tournaments for six
straight years for sake of raising
money to- help programs that were
established for the welfare of trou-
bled kids. When the doors to
Gadsden hospital were closed, he
even offered to do battle in the ring
with Quincy's police chief andl one
of his officers to raise money to help
re-open the hospital, but at last, the
city commission felt that the affair
would raise both questions of proto-
col as well as insurance liabilities, so
the event that even some commis-
sionsers wanted to see did not come
to pass. Now, Grandmaster Burns
vows to put an end to his fights in the
ring because after all for our area, he
and he alone is an instructor who
already has a student who has been
inducted info an international karate
Hall of Famer some know him as
Ivory Washington. For now
Grandmaster Burns has a greater
battle in sight the completion and
publication 'of volums of books that
deal with conscience as God,,and the
mathematical revelations that are
abridged by man's three dimensional
embrace of spiritual promal gastions,
at this time, Grandmaster Burns is a
9th degree Black Belt within
Shinjimasu (of karate association
where he has never known racism).
He is father to Reverend Richard
Burns and Shinny (Both profession-
al boxers). He is also father to
Christopher, who plans to turn pro
very soon; and to Zerald and Eria
both black belts.- Last but not least,
he is father to Nepertari!
Signed: Grandmaster

A lesson from Mary E.


SoSomeone told me there are 350
million people in America. Now, that
is a lot of earlobes and elbows. 350
million! Anid are you telling me, out
of this 350 million throng, the three
candidates that we are down to in
this presidential race are the best we
can come up with?
Come on now.
Maybe I've seen too much of these
aspiring contenders. Or they have
talked about each other a tad too
often. Or their stories have been told
one too many times. Or the campaign
"front" men they keep interviewing
on t.v. don't come across as all that
sincere. Maybe if we could turn them
off for a week...... Sometimes I
can't tell one candidate from the
others.
And, please understand, I'm not anti
John McCain, Hillary Clinton or
Barack Obama. I'm sure they are
very nice people. I'm not on some
kind of witch hunt. Nor am I trying
to sway a vote one way or the other.
It's just that none of these three
instill a heaping amount of hope or
good vibes or confidence in my little
heart. I'd like another option.
It appears to me that these three are
more interested in getting elected
than figuring out what this nation
needs to be doing. I'm sure that is
not the case, but I can't help but get
that feeling as the minutest detail of
this campaign is unveiled nightly for
our. viewing pleasure. I have learned
more than I want to know about each
of these candidates.
We once voted Mary E. Pendleton
class treasurer. But we only had
sixteen to choose from. And when
you consider we had already elected
Bobby Brewer president, Pam
Collins vice-president, Millicent
Blackburn secretary and Buddy
Wiggleton sergeant-at-arms our
selection pool had decreased even'
more. If we had had 350 million in
that class, I promise you we could
have found someone a little more
qualified than Mary E!
We didn't notice our money was
missing until we decided to leave
something for the school to
remember us by. We figured a sign
board out by the flag pole would be
mighty appropriate. We had been
taking up dues at our monthly class

meeting all year. We held a car wash
in April. By our rough calculation we
hhd at least eighty or ninety dollars;
utmil we got the "year end" treasury
report. Mary E. sto9d up, cleared her
throat and announced that we had a
grand total of fourteen dollars and
eleven cents in our account.

We cried foul. We ranted and raved.
We threw our pencils at her. We
called for a recount. We started an
investigation. We thought Mary E.
was passing out all of those
milkshakes on her dime! Come to
find out her generosity was fueled by
our bank account. We had eaten the
evidence!
And Mary E. claimed no harm, no
foul. She, as constitutionally
designated treasurer, allowed that
this was perfectly legal. She had used
class funds for the class's benefit.
Anne Alexander countered that she
hadn't gotten any of the milkshakes
and the class owed her money! Larry
Ridinger, who was a special favorite
of Mary E's, had received a shake
every day for months. Some felt
Larry owed the class. Buddy
suggested Larry pay Anne and
everything would be
square...... except we didn't get to
leave a lasting memory to the school.
Miss Polly Rucker helped us there.
She shook her head and bemoaned
that no one was ever going to forget
this class.
You see what selecting the wrong
person can do! We got 350 million to
choose from. Surely, there is
someone out there to stand in this
gap.....
I'm wondering if there isn't a
straight shooting cowboy in
Wyoming that might be better suited
to run this country. Or maybe a Wall
Street financier that can get the
economy back on track. Or a West
Virginia coal miner who knows a
thing or two about earning a
paycheck. Or a Nebraska 'truck driver
who has befriended every waiter and
waitress from Bangor, Maine, to
Astoria, Oregon.
We could elect Chick King President.
He's a former baseball coach of mine
who was about as direct as they
come. He didn't put up with any

On ax murder

and alligators
How it happened that a 27-year-
old Midway man felt it neces-
sary to hack a three-and-a-half
foot alligator to death at an
apartment complex, I can't tell
you.
I confess I am not an alligator
fan. Some years ago, there was a
story out about a man OK,
yes, he was from Kentucky, but
try not to hold that against him -
who got lost in some swamp in
South Florida.
Quite resourcefully, in my opin-
ion, he made good use of the
duct tape he happened to be car-
rying- around with" him during
his nature trek by climbing -a
tree and securing himself to it
with the stuff.
Why? So alligators wouldn't get
him while he was sleeping, of
course.
I do understand alligators serve
some, sort of purpose, they eat
insects, fish, dead animals and
the occasional live dog or
human, but I just can't seem to
embrace their existence, even
though alligators were designat-
ed the Official State Reptile by
the Legislature last year as
opposed to, say, the Florida box
turtle.
I like box turtles. Naturally, now
that they've been designated as
a threatened species I see rough-
ly 25 per day, plodding across
the roads I traverse and with a
palpable disinterest in the
swerving it, takes to avoid them.
They're small. They're quiet.
They look friendly. I wouldn't
have to run in zigzag fashion
should one decide to pursue me.
But no, our state reptile is the
alligator, which is, in all fair-
rness, also threatened, just ask
Mr. Midway Man with an ax to
grind.
Yep the State of Florida is rep-
resented by a prehistoric-look-
ing creature that can achieve a
weight of 400 pounds, a length
of 15 feet and is characterized
by eyes that stream strongly
suggested violence.
Remember the whole alligator
vs. python thing in the
Everglades a few years back?
Only two good things came of
that: Both combatants suc-
cumbed to their battle injuries
and I had an editor who let me
write about the whole grotesque
thing for her magazine.
I mean, no. I'm not above mor-
bid curiosity.
But this bit about hacking a
three-and-a-half foot alligator to
death at an apartment complex
is just a wee bit too Jeffery
Dahmerish to me. It was a
young gator not that I would
have offered to take it to a
Saturday morning matinee, but
still.. ..

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

Five essential gardening tips for summer


By Theresa Friday

Summer has arrived in North
Florida, and with it comes heat,
humidity and afternoon thunder-
showers. Here is a list of some
easy things to do to help keep
your garden under control and
looking good throughout the
summer season.
Plant for Color: Enjoy color
all summer long by establishing
heat resistant annuals and peren-
nials. Some to consider include
zinnias, pentas, shrimp plant,
coleus, plumbago, cuphea, orna-
mental peppers and hibiscus.
Deadhead spring planted
annuals and summer flowering
perennials by pruning off old


flowers. Make a light, supple-
mental application of a complete
fertilizer and continue irrigating
as needed. Remove weeds by
either hoeing or hand pulling.
Lawn Care: Raise the cut-
ting height by ? inch as extreme-
ly hot weather arrives. This
removes some of the stress from
the grass and allows for deeper
root growth.
Lawns should be watered on
an "as needed basis," rather than
on a schedule. Daily watering
of established grass is not neces-
sary nor recommended because
it wastes water and encourages
disease.
Two, possibly three, irriga-
tions per week might be


required in the absence of rain-
fall. Calibrate the sprinkling
system in order to make sure
that the right amount of water is
being applied. Depending upon
soil type, one-half to three
fourths of an inch will moisten
the soil to a sufficient depth.
Pest Watch: Inspect the lawn
and landscape weekly in order
to detect pests before they begin
causing serious problems.
Following are the most common
summer pest related disorders.
Contact your Extension agent
for help controlling these com-
mon summer pests.
Chinch bugs in St.
Augustine lawns and spittlebugs
in centipedegrass.


Flower thrips feed within
blooms and cause distorted
and/or short flower life. They
are most commonly found in
flowers of gardenia and rose, but
also infest many other flowering
annuals and perennials.
Spider mites can cause seri-
ous damage on shrubs, flowers
and perennials especially if dry
weather continues. Mites feed
mostly on the underside of
leaves, causing the foliage to
take on a stippled or gray cast.
Lacebugs are also found
on the underside of leaves, but
are more specific as to the
species infested. They are found
mostly on azaleas, lantaha, pyra-
cantha and sycamore.w Heavy


feeding causes the leaves to
have a white, bleached or gray
cast.
Pruning: Finish pruning your
spring flowering shrubs such as
azaleas, camellias, spireas and
wisteria by early June.
Do any necessary pruning of
hydrangeas and gardenias as
soon as flowering is finished.
They must have sufficient time
to re-grow before the dormant
season.
Ligustrum, elaeagnus, cley-
era and a number of other shrubs
tend to send up shoots that sig-
nificantly protrude from the
canopy. These longer shoots
should be completely removed
or at least cut off below the


canopy. This will improve the
appearance of these shrubs.
Beat the Heat: Take care of
yourself this summer by keeping
cool while gardening.
Slow down. Strenuous
activities should be reduced,
eliminated, or rescheduled to the
coolest time of the day.
Dress for summer.
Lightweight, light-colored
clothing reflects heat and sun-
light and helps your body main-
tain normal temperature.
Drink plenty of water.
Your body needs water to keep
cool. Drink plenty of fluids even
if you don't feel thirsty.
Don't get too much sun.
Sunburn makesit harderto cool off.


Gadsden Technical Institute to


offer patient assistance program


The Patient Care Assistant

the fall 2008 semester which
begins August 2008. There
will be .a program orientation
at the school on Tuesday,

evolve in the health care edu-
cation industry. GTI has
graduated more than 750
patient care assistant stu-
dents. You can find our grad-
uates in many area facilities.
Some have continued their

other health care occupations
while others continue as
nursing assistants to provide
optimum bedside and in-
home care.


If you would like to
become a Certified Nursing
Assistant/Home Health Aide
complete an application
immediately by calling or
visiting the school at 201
Martin Luther King, Jr.
Boulevard in Quincy. If you
are interested in entering the
Practical Nursing Program,
but your skills are not yet at

want to enter the CNA pro-
gram to gain needed entry-
level skills. Students who
commit to and successfully
complete the CNA program
may be able to apply their
training to advanced place-
ment in nursing programs.
The. one semester 300 hour

instruction and clinical expe-
rience in both long-term and
acute care (hospital) settings.


Full day attendance is
required in both the class-

be made early since there are
requirements that must be
completed prior to entry.

Seminole Ramlins


We at Wingate's Lunker
Lodge want to congratu-
late our local Hydrilla
Gnats Bass Club for a
good win on Lake Wheeler
in north Alabama. They
will advance to the next
level, which is the BASS
Federation Nation's 6 -
man Team World
Championship. We also
congratulate Sgt. Rich
Moulder, just back from
Iraq for his 2 8 pounders
on Crank Baits. 11 Bass
was also taken out of
schools at noon with stiff
Jerk Baits.
We had a 3 pound
Peacock Bass taken on the
lake, now that is an odd-
ball if I ever heard one.
We looked up the
American record and its 9
lbs. taken on Big Lake
Toho down in Florida.
There was several


Spoonbill Catfish taken on
the Apalachicola River this
week. They may have got
in the Flint River when the
'94 flood covered the fish
ponds at Newton, GA,
there was some in a pond
there. Then, near
Attapulgus, GA, a fish
farm there had Tilapia in it
and the same flood overran
the pens and cages. They
went in to the Ochlocknee
and could have worked
their way over to the
Apalachicola River and up
through the dam.
The Bream fishing has
been fantastic. This week
many limits were taken on
Crickets. The best, I think,
was 175 Bream, on
Crickets, by noon by 4
Bainbridge school teach-
ers. What a pile of fish.
Jerry Cooper twict this
week limited on his Fly


Rod. He likes the Fly-Rod
and so do I.
A nice tournament was
held here by the Talquin
Hookers. Mrs. Mercer
Brown won first place with
16.21 lbs. and Margaret
Hiers had the Big Fish, a
whopping big 5.28 lbs. All
the girls had a good time,
but it was hot and the gnats
were out. All but one lady
had fish and 3 big ones
was weighed in.

From ROBERTS on Page 4
Kirkland about the incident -
he's a Sneads native with
patience and ready details for
inquiring journalists.
He said he doubts the gator
was killed for its hide; state and
federal penalties for poaching
are so severe now few risk it,
plus, the gator was too small to
yield much profit from hide.
"'When individuals poach or
kill a gator that small, it's usual-
ly for the meat or to keep the
head or claws for trinkets," he
said.
Well YUCK.

We could save a lot of
money on press secretaries
and speech writers. Don't

I have thought of Mr. Ed
Wiley during this campaign.
He worked down at city hall
as a clerk or something when
Mary E. was twiddling away
our money. He was quiet and
unassuming. He always wore
a white short sleeve shirt and
a narrow black tie. To my
knowledge he never ran for
public office. But he was
about the most honest,
upright person I have ever
known. He didn't cheat. He
didn't cut corners. He

Volunteers are heart of Big Bend Hospice


Volunteers are the heart of
Big Bend Hospice
A Big Bend Hospice family
calls to have someone come sit
with their mother so they can go
out for their anniversary. A
Grieving husband receives a
Phone call from a volunteer who
is checking in to see how he is
holding up. A group of volun-
teers meet to discuss how to
make sure that no one in need of
.hospice services in Gadsden
- county is unaware of Big Bend
*Hospice. .All of these caring
people live and work right here
in 'Gadsden County and share
their time with their friends and
neighbors as Big Bend Hospice
volunteers. Big Bend Hospice
was founded by volunteers 25
years ago to provide a different,
more compassionate way to fin-
ish life's journey. Today we
serve over 202 patients each
year in Gadsden and Liberty
Counties and within our eight
county service area serve 375
patients and families every day.
Volunteering does not neces-


sarily mean working directly
with patients. Although all of
our patients. and their families
are offered a volunteer to help
with errands, provide trans-
portation and offer companion-
ship, there are many other
opportunities to volunteer.
Advisory Council members, for
example, meet monthly and act
as ambassadors in their commu-
nity, advising Big Bend Hospice
on issues in their county and
helping to increase awareness of
hospice services. These com-
mitted men and women are stay-
at-home moms, business people,
and retirees but each has in com-
mon the desire to help others. "I
find volunteer work with Big
Bend Hospice very rewarding. I
get back so much more than I
am able 'to give," says Bill
Blake, a patient family volun-
teer and a volunteer with the
Gadsden Advisory Council.
These sentiments are echoed by
.Willard Rudd another Council
volunteer. "There are too many
people in Gadsden County suf-


fering unnecessarily because we
have not reached them, to teach
them Hospice care. That is the
very thing that keeps me going;
that is why I volunteer with Big
Bend Hospice." Volunteer
Appreciation Week was April 27
through May 3. Big Bend
Hospice salutes the caring men
and women who volunteer in
Gadsden County. "These spe-
cial people are enriching lives
and making a difference to hos-
pice families," says Travia
Cromartie Cohen, Community
Resource Coordinator for Big
Bend Hospice. "They not only
sit at bedsides, they sit in 90
degree heat at fairs and festivals,
they put together goodie bags,
they bake and speak on our
behalf at clubs and churches.
They are the heart and soul of
our organization." If you are
interested in becoming a
Hospice volunteer please call
Travia Cromartie Cohen at
(850) 556-1786 for the next ori-
entation session. Volunteer to
change the world.


Anderson to run for School Board


My name is Martha
Anderson. 1 am a person of
good cheer. I have faith in the
Gadsden County school system.
I am an Early Childhood
Educator and a motivational
speaker. I know for a fact, that
learning- starts at an early age
from birth to the end of our
lives. I am an advocate for chil-
dren. I currently own a business
here in Quincy, dealing with
children daily. I am also a
resource person, that is I work
with citizens in and out of
Gadsden county with many
needs. I have been the Salvation
Army coordinator in Gadsden
county for several years helping'
families with utilities, burnouts
(fires), rent payment etc... I have
received many awards, but one I
treasure so much, is the one I
received for being a Champion
for Children. I'm asking the cit-
izens of district five to
support/vote for me as your
local school board member
because I want to bring practical
and reasonable communication
and suggestions to parents, stu-
dents, teachers, administrators,
and the community to ensure a
continued quality education in
this county. Consequently, as a
parent and a teacher in this
county, I see a better need for
parents and children communi-
cation, (Home life-children need
to stay in their place and stay
humble), school and parents
communication (treat parents
with respect, return phone calls,
meet and greet with an amicable
solution to problems), teachers
and children communication


(model by exam- I
pie-do unto others
as you would have
them do unto you- '- ... '-
stay in your
place), and com-
munity communi-
cation (people, we
all live here
together-let us
make ,our school .
system work-lend .
a helping hand, .
mentoring, caring, sharing in
unity in the community. -
In adjacent, my whole cam-
paign is about "education" con-
tinued quality education in
Gadsden county. My priorities
as a candidate for school board
member district five are:
A). To ensure safety of all
children.
B). To always put children
and their needs first.
C). To make sure children'
receive the tools that are needed
to succeed in school (such as
books). All children should be
assigned books. (Especially-
Math/Algebra and Foreign lan-
guages).
D). Recognize and respect
families value and support
stronger parental involvement.
E). To help unite parents,
teachers, administrators, and
students to achieve the goals of
the school district.
F). To make sure everyone,
parents, faculty, staff and
administrators are treated WITH
UPMOST respect and treated
fairly at all time.
G). To be well knowledge-
able of budget cuts and solutions


district five through meetings
and gr be sensitings to TandHE
staff, and students.
H). Work with constituents of
district five through meetings

consulting/networking with pio-
neers of education from this
county. Recognize local heroic
people.
I). Ready to meet challenges
in education and know what to
do when problems come up, and
willing to ask questions to get
answers, and do what is neces-
sary to get problems resolved
with solutions that bring about
opportunities.
Again, I'm asking all moth-
ers/fathers of this county to join
me in bringing our children
together, training them to obey
and maintain safety, and be of
good moral character. To join
this effort please call me. (850)
627-7409, if no one answers,
please leave a message. Thank
you! VOTE Martha Anderson
school board member district
#5. If anyone wants to help me
campaign, please volunteer by
calling (850) 875-1466 (leave a

S THE SAVVY

enior



Dear Savvy Senior,\p\pTaking
care of my 77-vear-old mother
who still lives in her own house is
wearing me to a frazzle. I work
full time and have a family of my
own and need help. Can you
provide some caregiving
resources or suggestions to help
my mom and have a family of my
own and need help. Can you
provide some caregiving
resources or suggestions to help
my mom and me before 1 give
out?

Desperate Daughter

Dear Desperate,


Taking care of an elderly loved
one over a period of time -
especially when juggled with
other responsibilities such as
employment and family
obligations can be physically
and mentally overwhelming.
Fortunately, resources are
available that can help. Here's
what you should know.

Support for Caregivers

It's easy to forget about your
own needs when you're a
caregiver. But doing so can take a
toll on your health. Here are some
caregiver support tips and tools to
help you stay healthy and reduce
your stress while you're caring
for your mom.

Develop a care team: The first
tip is to develop a team of people
that help out when you can't be
there or need a break. Start by
asking family, friends and
neighbors. Even help on a small


scale can be beneficial.
* Find local resources:
Knowing what kinds of resources
are available in your area, and
who to contact is a priceless tool
for caregivers. Depending on
your mother's needs, there are
lots of organizations and
businesses that provide services
to help, including: home health
care, 'home and personal care
services, adult daycare,
companion services, home
delivered meals, senior
transportation and more. To help
you locate what's available in
your community, contact your
Area Agency on Aging. Call the
Eldercare Locator at 800-677-
1116 to get your local agency
phone number or visit
www.eldercare.gov.
Use respite care: This is a
great service that offers
caregivers some much need time
off. Respite care can be for a few
hours, a few days or for several
weeks and can be provided in the


home of the person being cared
for, in an adult day center, or at a
residential setting such as an
assisted living facility or nursing
home. To locate a respite service
in.your area, visit the National
Respite Locator Service at
www.respitelocator.org' or check
with your local aging agency.
Seek professional help: If
you're not sure what to do for
your mom, or for those who are
caring for an aging parent or
other family member who lives in
another city or state (see
www.cfad.org), consider hiring a
geriatric care 'manager (visit
www.caremanager.org to locate
one in your area). This is a
professional who can assess your
loved one's needs, and work with
you to facilitate their care. The
cost. is around $300 for the initial
consultation and $75 to $150 an
hour thereafter.

Check into health specific
support: Associations that focus


on particular illnesses (such as
the American Heart Association
www.americanheart.org, 800-
242-8721; American Cancer
Society www.cancer.org, 800-
227-2345; or the Alzheimer's
Association www.alz.org, 800-
272-3900) can be another superb
resource for caregiving support
and information.
Look for financial assistance:
If your mom could use some
financial help visit
www.benefitscheckup.org. This is
a comprehensive resource for
locating financial assistance
programs that, may help her pay
for medications, health care,
utilities and other expenses.
Understand insurance issues:
If you have questions about
Medicare, Medicaid or long-term
care, your State Health Insurance
.Assistance Program (SHIP) is a
wonderful resource that provides
free counseling on all, these
issues. See www.shiptalk.org to
locate you local SHIP office.


* Take care of yourself:
Last but not least make your own
health a top priority. Being a
caregiver is a big job that can
cause emotional and physical
stress and lead to illness and
depression. The only way you can
provide the caregiving your
mother needs is to make sure you
stay healthy.
Savvy Tips: There are soriie
great resources on the Web that
can help including the Family
Caregiver Alliance '
(www.caregiver.org), which
provides contact information on
all caregiver support services and
programs nationwide. Also see

Lifeline helps low-income



Floridians keep in touch


TALLAHASSEE TracFone
is Florida's first prepaid wireless
provider to be designated by the
Florida Public Service
Commission (PSC) as an eligible
telecommunications carrier
(ETC) for the purpose of offering
Lifeline. The designation was
unanimously approved at today's
PSC Agenda Conference.
The Lifeline program helps
low-income Floridians maintain
essential telephone service
through a monthly credit on their
telephone bills. Under the
Lifeline program, residents who
participate in certain public
assistance programs are eligible
to receive a monthly discount of
at least $13.50 or more than
$160 per year.
TracFone's Lifeline offering
provides a free E911-compliant


handset to eligible consumers and
68 minutes of airtime per month.
If a customer exceeds the first 68
minutes, TracFone provides an
option to purchase additional
minutes. TracFone will begin
offerifig $2, $5, and $10 cards
that are strictly for use by
certified Lifeline customers.
These prepaid cards will not
expire, and customers will
receive a $0.20 a minute rate.
Any unused minutes will carry
over to the next month.
"The Lifeline program keeps
phone service affordable for low-
income Floridians. To benefit,
residents need to apply!" said
PSC Chairman Matthew M.
Carter II. "As the first prepaid
wireless carrier to offer Lifeline,
TracFone provides the
convenience of a mobile phone


and limited quantities of airtime
at no cost to qualifying
residents."
Customers can apply for
Lifeline through the Florida
Depitrtment of Children and
Families, the PSC, or by
contacting a service provider
directly.
The PSC is committed to
making sure that Florida's
consumers receive their electric,
natural gas, telephone, water, and
wastewater services in a safe,
affordable, and reliable manner.
The PSC exercises regulatory
authority over utilities in the
areas of rate base/economic
regulation; competitive market
oversight; and monitoring of
safety, reliability, and service.
