County


growth


management


director


resigns post

. By ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
County Manager Marlon Brown said Monday
that Growth Management Director Bill McCord
resigned his position, effective last Friday.
"It was by mutual agreement. He did a great job
here but it was in the best interest of this
government that Bill not be here," Brown said.
"I guess technically it was a resignation. I'm not
sure, I suppose that management was not real
happy with me. But I respect management's
decision," McCord said.
As an "at will" employee McCord could be
terminated or asked to resign at any time. by the
county manager.
"I didn't get a lot of complaints, at least not that
I know of. I'm the person who has to enforce the
code and people have to -jump through certain
hoops. All I was doing was trying to enforce the
rules and I guess some people didn't like having
to play by the rules," McCord said.
He speculated that his rigid discipline many
have been too much for some people to adjust to.
"They (county management) wanted results
regardless of the facts," he said.
McCord said that he enjoyed his working in
Gadsden County. He was hired in February 2005.
He told personnel director Arthur Lawson that he
would offer his assistance to the county if needed.
Chairman of the Board of County Commission
Ed Dixon, who often praised .McCord's work
during meetings, had no comment on the
resignation.
"I stay out of employee issues," he said.
"I'm surprised. I had no idea that this was
coming. When I got a call from the manager, I
was speechless," said Commissioner Eugene
Lamb.


Carter-Parramore Academy to close?


School Board considers closing alternative school, cuts annual pay


By LESLIE ROBERTS
Times General Manager
Gadsden County School Board
members debated Tuesday closing:
Carter-Parramore Academy and voted
on several other cost-cutting measures
including reducing the number of days
worked by all school system
employees.
The move came after a committee
comprised of administrators, teachers
and a union representative for
instructional and non-instructional
employees studied ways to trim the
district's budget.
"Nobody likes to have .a contract
reduced," School Board member


Judge Helms said at Tuesday's special
meeting. "The bottom line is, it's a
reduction in pay for the year.
Hopefully, these things won't last
forever. But I don't want to piecemeal
it I don't want it just to represent one
set of employees, I want it to represent
employees across the board -
administrators, instructional, non-
instructional ... nobody likes it, but
everybody can understand it, as long
as it's fair and across the board."
Gadsden County schools took a $5
million hit for the 2008-2009 school
year from a state budget shortfall; the
state's funding for the 2007-2008
school year was $1.4 million less than
in the previous year.


As a result, the committee tasked
with finding ways to keep the school
system running and bring its
recommendations to the board and
Schools Superintendent Reginald
James proposed reducing the number
of school employees, paying retirees
who return to work an entry-level
wage and a reduction of healthcare
services provided by the Gadsden
County .Health Department, all of
which the board voted Tuesday to
approve.
"In this" position we are in as board
members, it doesn't fall on the
committee, it doesn't fall on the
superintendent. It falls on the five
individuals sitting up here," board

4r Officials look for ways to make rural ER a reality


-" .

Sen. Al Lawson speaks at a June 6 gathering of
local county officials.


Special to the Times
The Gadsden County Board of County
Commissioners is moving forward with a plan to
re-open its hospital next year as a rural emergency
facility with 25 beds.
Sen. Al Lawson attended a gathering of
commissioners, a citizens' advisory committee and
area residents June 6 to discuss plans to reopen the
hospital if the funding can be found.
In a unanimous vote June 3 during the regular
County Commission meeting, commissioners voted
to re-open Gadsden Community Hospital under the
Rural Emergency Hospital Concept using a
proposed half-cent sales tax as its source of
funding.
Gadsden Community Hospital closed in 2005.
"We're looking for a higher level of care for our
residents," said Edward J. Dixon, Gadsden County


Commission Chairman. "And we believe this
concept will provide that. This hospital would
provide 24/7 emergency care. In researching the
best. way to restore more comprehensive health care
services to Gadsden County, we looked to a citizen
advisory committee to provide what they thought
were the best options for our county. And they
thought this concept was one that would work well
here."
A rural emergency hospital primary focus is on
providing emergency and inpatient care. Similar to
a regular hospital, it will include an emergency
room, provide a full range of laboratory and
radiology services, rehabilitation services and a
specialty physician clinic to allow specialty
physicians from urban areas to see patients. The
clinic also allows local physicians to make .referrals
to specialists on designated days, which means
local residents don't have to leave the community.


"The advisory committee wholeheartedly felt this
was the best option for our community," said Scott
Whitehead, chairman of the Rural Hospital Citizens
Committee. "The concept provides, us with what
we need most immediate and comprehensive
treatment. Tallahassee is just too far away to go to
get help, especially in an emergency."
Gadsden County Commissioners estimate it will
take about $6.5 million to renovate the existing
hospital. They plan to issue debt for the project and
repay the loan with proceeds from the proposed
half-cent sales tax, which will raise an estimated
$1.5 million a year should voters approve its
passage on the August ballot. A portion of the
funds will also be used to provide health care to the
county's more than 10,000 uninsured.
"This is Gadsden County's opportunity to assure
themselves of a county hospital," said Joe Sharp,
the county's See HOSPITAL on Page 3

Local officials break ground on courthouse expansion



Long-awaited $1.4 million project slated for completion by end of the year


Special totlie Times

In an effort to alleviate jail over-
crowding and reduce Gadsden
County's court dockets, the
Gadsden County Board of
County Commissioners along
with local law enforcement and
representatives of the 2nd
Judicial Circuit broke ground
Tuesday to begin construction
on the long-awaited expansion
of the Guy A. Race Judicial
Complex.
"This is a great day for Gadsden
County. We have been working
to get here for many years," said
Edward J. Dixon, chairman of
the Gadsden County Board of
County Commissioners. "This
project is a reflection of what
partnerships can produce and
as you can see, it has provided
Gadsden County another court-
room and office space for our
public defender's staff.
Additionally, we are grateful for
our state legislative delegation.
There is no way we could cele-
brate this victory without their
continued efforts on behalf of
Gadsden County."


The expansion, which was a
request by the Board of County
Commissioners, the Trial Court
Administrator, the Chief .1udge,
and the Public Defender's
office, has been a need the
Gadsden County court system,
has had for some time, accord-
ing to Doug Smith, public infor-
mation officer for the 2nd
Judicial Circuit.
"Our caseloads have grown by
that much in the last four to five
years," he said. "We realized
then, we were on the verge of
the docket'becoming further and
further behind. We only have
two courtrooms. We don't have
a place to hear other cases."
That means only a few trials can
be held at a time; resulting in
prolonged stays for many
offenders.
"Our judges' caseloads in the
circuit are probably the highest
of any other circuit," added
Smith. "We're very excited to
see the growth happen there. It
will give us room for future
growth."
Currently, the Gadsden County
Board of County Commission


chambers serves as a make-shift
courtroom for llHearing Officer
Kathy Garner's child support
proceedings.
"1I think 'this is an excellent
opportunity to expand and meet
the needs of Gadsden County"
said Judge George S. Reynolds,
111, who is assigned to the 2nd
Judicial. Circuit Civil and
Family division. "Coming to
court should be as convenient as
possible and this will provide
citizens better access because
we'll have more courtrooms and
be able to improve on the delays
the court is experiencing due to
lack of space."
The project, which will take
about seven months to com-
plete, will carry a price tag of
$1.4 million that will be paid
largely in-part by funding
received from the state
Legislature.
The Quincy-based architectur-
al firm Joel Sampson Architects,
Inc. was hired to design the
additional space.
Southern Triad Construction.
based in Bainbridge, Ga. is the
general contractor.


County officialswith shovels in hand at Tuesday's groundbreaking ceremony for a courthouse annex.


The additional courtroom,
which will be on the first floor,
will be similar in size to that of
the courtroom in the annex.
Office space for the Gadsden
County Public Defender's office
will be on the second floor.
'"We are extremely happy that


the county has gotten the fund-
ing to move forward with the
project," said Nancy Daniels,
public defender for the 2nd
Judicial Circuit:
"We've needed some improve-
ments for a long time. We're
sure there will be some interrup-


tions, but there will be some
improvements. Our offices are
very cramped and we have a
very small waiting office for
clients. We also don't have a lot
of room for files, so we are
pleased there will be more
space."


Tips for stocking up and staying safe during the 2008 hurricane season


By Alice Du Pont
Times Editor

If a hurricane hit today, would
you be ready?
June 1 marked the official start
of the 2008 hurricane season.
The National Oceanic and
Atmospheric Administration
(NOAA) has estimated a 65 per-
cent probability of an above nor-
mal Atlantic hurricane season.
If 'you have not already made
preparations, the Federal
Emergency Management
Agency (FEMA) recommends
the following measures to take
now:


*Make plans to secure your
property. Permanent storm shut-
ters offer the best protection for
windows. A second option is to
board up windows with 5/8 inch
marine plywood, cut to fit and
ready to install. Tape does not
prevent windows from breaking.
*Install straps or additional clips
to securely fasten your roof to
the frame structure. This will
reduce roof damage.
*Be sure trees and shrubs
around your home are well
trimmed.
*Clear loose and clogged rain
gutters and downspouts.


*Determine how and where to
secure your boat.
*Locate a safe room.
Already, there has been one
named hurricane and the season
is less than a week old. If a hur-
ricane is likely in the area, you
should:
*Listen to the radio and televi-
sion for information.
*Secure your home, close storm
shutters, and secure outdoor
objects or bring them indoors.
*Turn off utilities if instructed to
do so. Otherwise turn the ther-
mostat to its coldest setting and
keep its doors closed.


*Turn off propane tanks
*Avoid using the phone, except
for serious emergencies.
*Ensure a supply of water for
sanitary purposes such as clean-
ing and flushing toilets. Fill the
bathtub and other large contain-
ers with water.
Evacuate under the following
conditions:
*If you are ordered to do so by
officials.
*If you live in a mobile home or
temporary structure-such as
shelters are particularly haz-
ardous during hurricane no mat-
ter how well fastened to the
ground.


*If you live in a high rise build-
ing-hurricane winds are stronger
at higher elevations.
*If you feel you are in danger.
If you are unable to evaculate,
go to a safe room. If you do not
have a safe room, follow these
guidelines:
*Stay indoors during the hurri-
cane and way from windows
and glass doors.
*Close all interior doors-secure
and brace external doors.
*Keep curtains and blinds
closed. Do not be fooled if there
is a lull. Winds could pick up
'again.
*Take refuge in a small interior


room, closet, or hallway on the
lower level.
*Lie on the floor under a table or
another sturdy object.
Four major hurricanes, includ-
ing one with a good chance of
hitting the United States, will
form in the Atlantic Ocean dur-
ing the upcoming hurricane sea-
sons, experts say. They did not
speculate where the hurricane is
likely to come ashore.
Hurricane forecaster William
Gray, who has been issuing long
range forecasts for decades, said
2008 will continue a trend of
above average hurricane seasons
that started in 1995.

historic 86 percent of the
district's students performed at or
above required levels. Fourth-
graders improved by six points,
fifth-grade students improved by
nine points, sixth grade improved
three points, seventh grade by
two points, eighth grade by one
point, ninth grade by 21 points
and 10th grade increased district
wide by eight points. In reading,
the district continued to make
progress with a third of students
scoring higher than ever before.
An overall review of the district's
scores show that fourth-graders
improved three points, sixth-
graders by six points, seventh-
graders by two, ninth-graders by


nine and 10th-graders increased
in reading by one point.
James credits the gaims to
parents, teachers, administrators
and community.
"We keep moving forward and
it is only because of the tireless
contributions ol others to ourt
schools," he said.
James says lie plans to press for
the full implementation of the
Continuous Improvement Model
to drive instruction and ensure
that the most effective staff is on
board at the start of the upcoming
school year.
"We said, 'No Excuses,' and
that remains our motto," he
added.

zone schools and taking energy-
saving measures district wide.
"The whole idea is to keep
people working," James said.
"This is not your normal
situation. If everybody gives a
little bit, we can keep more
people working ... Instead of
having (100-175 people laid off,
right now we're at around 55. It's
better to have a job than to not
have a job at all."
Paul Burdette, who represents
members of the instructional and
non-instructional union, said
several of the items voted on a
reduction in the number of days
worked, for instance, and paying
returning retirees an entry-level
salary are negotiable.
Still, he understands the budget
crisis and the impact it's had on
school districts statewide.


From PROGRESS page 1
and in March received a refund
credit from Progress Energy in
the amount of $170,586.53 which
was credited to the true up
account balance. This means that
the balance is now $140,134.75
interest included.
The agreement that
commissioners approved would
provide for the first payment with
no interest of $20,019.25 with no
interest and six monthly
installments of $20,019.25. The
first payment has already been
made. The final payment is due
Dec. 1.'2008. The payments that
are due in this budget year,
$80,077 plus interest will be paid
for from the purchased electric
account in the current budget.

bringing other cuts to the table
that could help avoid some of
these extreme cuts."
Board members took no formal
action oil a proposal to close
Carter-Parramore Academy, but
the issue did spark a heated
debate.
The former high school re-
opened as an alternative school in
2005, and now houses around
245 students.
"When we first talked about
Carter-Parramore, we had kids in

"I wanted to demonstrate to
Progress Energy that we are
willing to make our payments
timely so that they we begin
treating us a valued customer,"
McLean said.
Commissioner Derrick Elias
asked McLean if the $101,845
citizens had already paid because
it was part of the February utility
bill would be returned to citizens.
McLean said that the
commissioners had not given
staff any direction and that the
idea of a refund had not been
discussed.

the most sense. When you look at

Council will prepare to launch a

understanding is that Carter-

disruptive kids. It was set up for
kids who were behind."
Board Chairman Roger Milton
said he'd like to see some
statistics on how many students at
the academy are there as a result
of expulsions from school and
how many were there for other
reasons.
He also wanted to know how
area schools would cope with
Carter-Parramore students
returning to the schools they
originally attended.
"What would be the plan for

deserve to have it. This will be a
win-win for all."

As long as we think, we can be better than we are.

Contemplation, J



Some thoughts on sprucing up

downtown Quincy


It is my opinion that downtown Quincy
could be a prettier place with just a little
effort.
May I suggest that the city's street
sweeper be used to sweep the streets
occasionally.
Week after week, I have noticed the
gutters full with paper, dried fruit and
general debris. It is so unsightly and
takes away from the overall look of a
small, charming city.
Secondly, maybe someone could be
assigned to making sure the planters
around the holly trees is free of tall
grass, and other green things that are
sprouting up around the trees.
A few squirts of weed-be-gone (or
whatever it's called) on a regular basis
could probably eliminate that problem.
Also. I would like to suggest that
whatever weed-be-gone is left over
could be used to get rid of the grass that
is growing out of the cracks in the


sidewalk.
As a citizen who lives in this
community, I am asking that someone
pay a little more attention to the way our
streets and sidewalks look. Litterbugs
are everywhere and they're not likely to
go any place in the near future.
People who don't think will continue to
throw paper, chewing gum, cigarette
butts and other unsightly things on our
streets and sidewalks. Almost every
Saturday and Sunday afternoon, I take a
plastic bag and pick up paper people
have thrown on the streets in front and
on the side of my home,
But no one lives downtown and
therefore there is no one to pick up
paper,
Some store owners will make sure the
entrances are sweep clean but they
certainly aren't going to sweep gutters
Please, please, pretty please, keep
downtown cleaner.


Father's Day ... or Dad's Day?
By Jack Levine


In looking forward to Sunday, June 15th,
I'm pleased to share this message.
Father's Day might be misnamed... .1I vote
for Dad's Day.
I believe there's a big difference between
being a Father and being a Dad. The
former is biological, the latter emotional.
Fathering is an act of nature;
being a Dad is all nurture. It's certainly
much easier to become a father than
to commit to becoming a Dad.
Every child needs a Dad who may or
might not be his or her biological father. A
Dad is someone who's there when a child
needs them most, in good times and bad,
when guidance and the gifts of an open
ear and caring heart are most important.
Dads come in all ages and stages of life.
Grandfathers and uncles, cousins and
big brothers, family friends, teachers,
clergy, coaches and mentors, and even
commanding officers can play the role of
Dad at critical moments in a young
person's life.
Foster and adoptive Dads are among the
most special people because their gifts
are often the most timely in the life of a
child. Opening our doors and hearts to
children whose needs are great
and emotions fragile takes a certain blend
of kindness and leadership. How many
of us have the courage and commitment
to accept another's child as our own?
I consider myself a Dad because from day
one....actually minute one.....our sons'
presence has been something special and
even sacred to me. I don't mean to

boast, but I believe that I've acquired that
essential trait of positive
parenting.....to become someone who
learns how to love from our children and
who
loves them back unconditionally.
As an advocate, I often ask questions
which bring attention to a cause and spark
conversation to seek solutions.
Advocates give voice to critical issues and
attract partners for progress.
I hope you'll agree with me that the
absence of Dads in the lives of children,
either physically or emotionally, is
certainly one of the most obvious factors
. in contributing to childhood stress.
While it's obvious that most Moms are
heroic and provide a phenomenal level of
care, loving support, and family leadership,
I hold fast to the "belief that children need
more than one primary care-giver. Having
studied the family for more than 30-years,
I'm convinced that when a child is not
afforded the advantage of a loving and
caring male model, problems are more
likely. Call me a traditionalist, but I think
children live what they learn, and who
among us has not benefited from the
generous gift of male guidance?
I certainly do not advocate putting
children in peril if a parent is dangerous
or their influence, detrimental to the
child's health and safety'. But given the
reality that child rearing is at its best a team
sport, let's develop a consensus. to
empower Dads, support Dads, and when

When we
Kesle


-# ."w-'


I%.es .,
hunker down to talk, we're all on the same level, by
:y Colbert, just a good ole boy that likes to write.


Woody gets defensive!


1 can't remember exactly when J. C.
Caroline moved from running back to safety
for the Chicago Bears. It was either 1957 or
58. The Bears signed a great halfback by the
name of Willie Gallimore. to carry the
football for them. J. C. didn't pout, demand
a trade or threaten to sit out the season. He
simply moved to the "other side of the ball"
and went to tackling folks and intercepting
passes. He was, and is to this day, my all
time favorite football player.
And I made the switch with him. I no
longer cared about scoring. Defense wins
championships! It was all about stopping the
other fellow! We'd choose up sides in that
field beside Bobby Gwaltney's house and go
at it. If 1 won the toss I'd let the other team
have the ball...and I'd try to break
somebody's neck before they could get it
past the second tree out by the road!
I'd let the air out of the ball when no one
was looking. I prayed for rain and wind and
fog and sleet and hail and pestilence before
every 'game. We didn't play tag. I protested
vehemently when they let the center be
"eligible". I'd yell at Leon or Nicky Joe if
they stayed in the huddle too long, "Call
something and let's go!." I learned "low man
wins" playing those older and bigger guys.
I amn not a Pittsburg Steelers' tfan. But, I tell
you what, watching Mean Joe Greene,
Dwight White, Andy Russell, J. T. Thomas,
Jack Lambert, L. C. Greenwood, Jack Hamn
and those guys was a real treat for me in the
seventies and. early eighties. Woody
Widenhofer was the defensive coordinator
through much of the "Steel Curtain's" reign
on the NFL and their amazing four Super
Bowl wins. Terry Bradshaw, Franco Harris
and Lynn Swann helped a little. But, trust
me, defense will put the ring on your finger!
I was astounded when Jim Conway
stopped by to tell me that Coach Widenhofer


was coming to speak to the local Lions
Club. "Uh, Jim...you know I'm a closet
Lion. I have been for years. Now when
exactly is this meeting..."
Jim is from South Philly. It's not hard to
run anything past those guys. I was smiling
and shaking hands and saying, "Jim invited
me" as I strolled amongst my fellow "Lions"
this past Wednesday. I couldn't wait to meet
Coach Widenhofer. I wanted to ask him
about the weak side linebacker if the z
receiver went in motion to the wide side. I
think you can walk him up and bring him-
but I wanted to know if a Super Bowl coach
agreed. Could you play the strong side end
in a 7 technique when the offense shifts a
wing to that side? Or do you need to move
him head up or shade'im out side? I wanted
to know if Mel Blount was really 6' 3" as the
program listed. He seemed too quick on
television to be that tall.
"It's an honor to meet you, Coach." He had
a firm handshake and he looked me right in
the eye. Two things you would expect from
a defensive specialist. "Do you know J. C.
Caroline?" I had lots of questions, but first
things first!
"I don't know him personally," he
responded like he got asked that question
everyday, "but I know he is a great man.
And he was a great running back at Illinois
before he joined the Bears. Everyone in the
league likes and respects him." His answer
was direct and genuine. I liked this guy
immediately. Course, saying nice things
about J. C. Caroline around me is preaching
to the choir!
I figured I ought to let him know Cathy
used to root for him like crazy when he was
the head football coach at Vanderbilt
University. "Coach, I'm married to a
Conunodore."

My name is Cynthia Martin and I'm a
single mother of 1 child and I live in
the Gadsden Arms Apartments on
Stewart Street. I know what it's like to
struggle everyday to make ends meet
for myself and my child. I know what
it's like to want to work and earn an
honest living but can't find a job. I
know what it's like to lose hope that
things will ever get better. But I also
know what it's like to finally find
hope. I found my hope in Sherrie
Taylor well before she ever ran for a
public, office. I knew her when she
was just an ordinary citizen. And the
same way she's helping people now is
the same way she was helping people
back then. I knew heir back then as a
person who would sacrifice her own
comfort to help people like me who
sometimes fall in the cracks of the
floor in society. She didn't forget
about us then and she didn't forget
about us when she got in office. I
knew her back then as a person who
fought to ensure that every child had a
equal chance to succeed and she has
proven to me that she still hasn't for-
got our children. I knew her back then
as a person who would check on the
elderly in our community and make
sure they had food when they was
hungry and air when it was hot and
heat when it was cold. The Sherrie
Taylor I know is still doing those same
things today as a Quincy city commis-
sioner and I know that she won't for-
get about us when she becomes a
County commissioner.


I'm writing today simply to say thank
you Sherrie Taylor for giving people
like me hope in a brighter day and
forcing me to trust God for something
better in my life. Thank you for the
homes that you've helped to build in
my community because seeing a new
homeowner in my community gives
me hope that one day soon I'm gonna
own my own home. Thank you for the
after school programs you started in
the Quincy and the Children Are Our
Future summer program. Programs
just like that have already helped my
child get his high school diploma and
inspired him to go on to college. And
because of you he will inspire other
children who are growing up in low
income single parent homes and let
them know all things are possible
when you work hard and trust in God.
Thank you for standing with us and
not forgetting about us and' always
instilling in us that Faith Without
Works is dead. I began to put some
work with my faith because of you
and now I have a Job, my child is in
college, and I'm building up my cred-
it so I can be a first time home owner.
My prayer is that you win this election
for County Commission Seat 5
because I know it will put you in a
position to help many more people. I
know you will win. I love you and
Thanks for caring about our commu-
nity.

Cynthia Martin,

Changes all

over the place

Change is in the air, it seems,
and why such a predictable part
of life would give me pause, I'm
not sure.
Because I'm not omniscient, I
guess.
Gadsden Arts Center director
Tricia Collins moved on and
Grace Maloy has resumed her
role as the arts center's director;
Quincy has fired another city
manager and Midway 'City
Manager Angela Poole
announced her resignation last
week; our County Growth
Management Director, Bill
McCord, also resigned last
week and a few things have
changed here, too.
We've added a few things to the
newspaper a crossword puz-
zle, Soduko, a Senior Savvy col-
umn.
Perhaps the most-commented
on change I've made since
being named general manager
of the Gadsden County Times is
the mystery feature last week,
on the front page, above the
'fold, no less, I wrote a tease
head promising a story about an
upcoming football camp to be
hosted by Corey Fuller and
Deion Sanders.
Somehow in the thick of things
the story didn't make it into the
paper sorry guys. And thanks
for your understanding.
It IS in this week; on page 8.
I've enjoyed this new role, and
the first few weeks have been a
bit hectic.
Here comes the kid story.
Last Wednesday, my son treated
me to an impromptu concert
after we got home, first banging
out what sounded at least a little
like Beethoven's Fifth on his
Schroeder-like piano then
switching to the classic gospel
"Joy, joy, joy, joy, down in my
heart" a capella before picking
up the toy guitar Santa brought
him for Christmas.
Blues, all the way, a serious
John Lee Hooker/George
Thorogood sound going on, he
plucked the strings as if tuning
the thing then launched into
song.
Which was fine. The songs he
makes up are always the best.
He bent his head over the guitar,
tilting an ear toward it and dug
in.
"This song is getting tougher,"
he said, as his 5-year-old fingers
strummed plastic strings.
He played some more.
"The song is getting tougher.
I'm telling you, you'd better put
on your boxing gloves," he says,
shooting me a mischievous
look.
I gvae him that fit-in-the-gro-
cery-store, "Whose child are
you?" look.
Rock-n-roll Hall of Fame, here
we come.

Times General Manager

Tallahassee police and U.S.
Marshall's officers arrested a
Chattahoochee man June 5 who
had *>S,1,Lcd from the custody of'
a Florida H1-ighway Patrol troop-
er the night before.
According to FHP reports,
Trooper Dennis E. Revell saw
23-year-old Frederick Alls driv-
ing a silver Dodge Avenger east-
bound on Interstate 10 at a high
rate of speed June 4 at around 7
p.m.
He pulled Alls over, and dur-
ing the traffic stop found a black
bag with a "vast amount of ille-
gal narcotics."


Revell arrested Alls, hand-
cuffed his hands behind his back
and put him in the back of his
patrol car. Meanwhile, a 9-
month-old child in the back of
Alls' car was crying and sound-
ed as if she were choking.
Revell left Alls in the patrol car
and tried to help the baby. Other
FHP troopers were enroute.
During that time, Alls man-
aged to unfasten his seatbelt and
reposition his hands to his front.
He then crawled between the
front seats of the patrol car,
grabbed the black bag with nar-
cotics and ran toward a wooded
area.
FHP tried to locate Alls using
a canine unit, but he was not


TPD and the U.S. Marshall's
office responded, forcing entry
into Alls' room. Alls was in the'
room, still wearing handcuffs.
Authorities found three stolen
firearms and drugs in the room.
Alls was transported to
Tallahassee Memorial Hospital
because officers believed he
might have swallowed marijua-
na.
He was charged with escape,
fleeing and eluding, theft, two
counts of criminal mischief,
child neglect, speeding and
DWLSR. TPD charged Alls
with possession of stolen
firearms and drugs, and he had
several outstanding warrants at
. the time Revell pulled him over.


Operation H.E.A.T. : Law enforcement team effort aims to reduce traffic fatalities


By ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

In light of the recent traffic-
related injuries and fatalities on
Interstate 10 in Gadsden County,
a joint effort to reduce fatalities
and injuries between the Florida
Highway Patrol, the Gadsden
County Sheriffs Office, the
Havana Police Department, the
Gretna Police Department, the
Chattahoochee Police
Department and the Department
of Transportation Carrier
Compliance Division, was
mounted last Friday.
For the 33 miles of the
Interstate that runs through the
county, officers set up at various
intervals east and west, and went
to work stopping mostly speed-
ers and those who failed to
observe the Move Over Law.
"Hopefully this is the begin-


ning of a safer Gadsden
County," said FHP Major
Timothy Ashley, during a press
conference at the Gadsden
County Jail.
Major Shawn Wood of the
GCSO said the spike in fatalities
and injuries in May was the cat-
alyst for Operation H.E.A.T.
(Highway Enforcement
Accident-Reduction Team).
From 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., 192
citations were issued in Gadsden
County. This is the breakdown:

*106 unlawful speed cita-
tions
*29 move over citations
*12 seatbelt citations
*15 faulty equipment notices
*46 written warnings
*Six misdemeanor arrests
*12 disabled motorist assists
One commercial motor
vehicle inspection resulting in


an out-of-service.

"Most of the people are not
locals, they're passing through
but they have to adhere to the
traffic rules too. Some of these
people will drive in excess of
100 miles per hour out here and
that's putting all of these other
people in danger," said Lt.
Shelton Turner of the GCSO.
Friday's operation was the
first of four phases aimed at zero
tolerance for hazardous moving
violations, zero tolerance for
unlawful speed violations, zero
tolerance for seat belt and child
restraint violations, to educate
the driving public on Florida's
move-over law, and zero toler-
ance on commercial motor vehi-
cle moving and non-moving
hazardous violations.
"During the first five months
of 2008, Gadsden County


experienced five fatal crashes
involving seven deaths on
Interstate 10," said Sgt. Brannon
Snead of FHP.
The method for enforcement
also included aerial speed
enforcement. FHP uses painted
lines on the pavement to identi-
fy a measured course. As vehi-
cles enter the measured course, a
stopwatch is activated in the air-
plane. The vehicle's speed is
based on the time it takes to
travel between two or more
painted lines.
Once the course is complet-
ed, the speed is calculated. If the
driver is speeding, the descrip-
tion of the vehicle is broadcast
to ground units. The driver, is
pulled over and the speeding
vehicle is verified.
"The aircraft is an excellent
.tool. First, of all the motorist
cannot seen the aircraft and they


are very, very accurate," Lt.
Turner said.
Deputies Joe Barnes and
Calvin Carter worked the east-
bound traffic and had handed
out 11 citations by noon. The
heat, they said, was brutal but if
it took that to save lives on the
interstate, they weren't com-
plaining.
Barnes was finishing the
third violation of the move over
law violated by the driver of an
18-wheeler.
"He came over the hill and he
had ample time an opportunity
to move over in the other lane
and decrease his speed. He did-
n't do that so he gets to take
home a $80.50 ticket," Barnes
said.
More and more often
motorists will be cited for non-
compliance with the move over
law.


The law requires that when
approaching an emergency vehi-
cle with lights flashing parked
on the side of a multi-lane road,
drivers must move over by
changing lanes away from the
emergency vehicle as soon as it
is safe to do so.
Drivers must move out of the
lane that is closest to an emer-
gency vehicle to prevent crash-
ing into the emergency vehicle
or any emergency workers per-
forming their jobs.
On two-lane roads, drivers'
must slow down to 20 miles per
hour below the posted speed
limit and approach with caution
unless otherwise directed by an
emergency worker on the scene.
"Friday's operation was a
success and who knows, we may
have saved some lives on I-10
just by being out there," Lt.
Turner said.


Havana Police hope grant will help teens be safer drivers


By ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

A $25,000 grant from Florida
Department of Transportation to
the Havana Police Department
may help *Gadsden County
teenagers become better drivers.
Chief Glynn Beach said the
grand it intended to address teen
drivers and prevent automobile
crashed that involve teenagers.
Part of the money has been used
to purchase and make Go carts


"street legal."
"We have partnered with the Pat
Thomas Law Enforcement
Academy and the school dis-
trict. The first class of 15-25 stu-
dents will begin on June 25 at
the law enforcement academy,
across from East Gadsden High
School," Beach said.
The course will consist of two
hours of classroom instruction
before students move outside on
the driving course.
"The go carts will familarize the


students with the driving course,
then we will move to the
impaired vision guards so they
can get to know what it feels
like to drive impaired and final-
ly, we'll introduce distractions to
see how they will react," Beach
said.
The course is open to any stu-
dent in the county who attends
public or private schools.
"It's portable. And we'll take it to
any school. Getting behind the
wheel is a privilege, but they


have to have some responsibili-
ty," he said. '
.Nationwide the statistics are
sobering in 2007 Beach said
there were over 3,000 deaths in
Florida. In Gadsden County 13
of the fatalities that were auto-
related involved teenagers. As
of June 1, there had been 11 total
traffic fatalities in the' county.
"Sixty nine percent were killed
because they weren't wearing
seatbelts. That's a useless
death," he said.

An autopsy on Linda Boone, the Orange Park women whose
body was found inside her car in a field south of Sunnyvale
Cemetery, hasn't turned up any clues as to her cause of death.
"The cause of death is still undetermined. We know now that
there was no blunt trauma to the body. There will be toxicology sent
to the lab and that could take up to two weeks or more," said Chief
Gerald McSwain.
Officer Clarence Pearson said the department is still looking for
leads. Boone was last seen by her in family in Jacksonville around
midnight Friday, May 30. Authorities suspect, from the condition of
the body, that Boone had been dead in her automobile since early
Saturday, May 31.
The discovery of Boone was made after gravediggers noticed an
automobile near the cemetery early Tuesday morning and notified
the Quincy Police Department. When officers arrived they found
Boone's body inside the vehicle reclined behind the steering wheel,
the windows were rolled up but the car was not locked.
Still baffling to police is how Boone, a white female, ended up in
the field that dead ends at the cemetery at the end of South Stewart
Street, a few hundred feet from the faculty parking lot at Stewart
Street Elementary School.

Quincy police captain retires after 29 years on the job


By ALICE DU PONT
Tiiies Editor

In the 21) years that Danny
Moore has been with the Quincy
Police Department he has seen a
lot of changes, among them was
serving under no less than five
police chiefs.
It was Dec. ,1 1979 when
then-Quincy Department of
Public Safety Director Ed
Spooner saw promise in the
fresh-faced Moore who was
only a few days out of the train-
ing academy and cross trained
as a firefighter and a police offi-
cer.
Moore said the biggest
change in his early career was
the separation of the fire and
police departments. When the
department became two, (fire
and police) Moore opted to join
the police department. He said
the decision to become an offi-
cer was based on his desire to
work closely with citizens.


"I really enjoy people and 1
felt that being a police officer
would give me more interaction.
I still enjoy the people of
Quincy and I'm really going to
miss them." Moore said.
Everyone knows that about
half of police work is writing
reports. Moore could only smile
when he thought about writing
those reports in the early 80s.
"Can you imaging being a
young officer and trying to
make sure all of the reports were
correct? We had to hand write
all of the reports and you were
bound to make a mistakes. We
must have bought white-out by
the case. Sometimes, I had o
start over because the report was
caked with white-out," he said.
No one was happier than
Moore when the department
became computerized and
reports could be generated
quicker and mistakes could be
corrected in minutes.
"Computers are a blessing.


The technology we have now is
amazing and it makes every-
thing more efficient. It makes
out jobs easier in that we can
serve our citizens better," he
said.
Starting off as an officer,
Moore stuck to his chosen
career and came up through the
ranks. Two years ago, he was
promoted to Captain. His phi-
losophy is that better officers are
those who come through the
ranks.
"You learn more when you
start from the ground up, so to
speak. You learn why things are
the way they are, and in a small
town. you get to know they peo-
ple and the history of certain
people. Sometimes you come
into contact with an individual
and if you are aware of their
backgrounds, you are able to
deal with them better," Moore
said.
But most disturbing to Moore
is the increase in juvenile


offenders and kind crimes they
are committing. "You always
hope that you will make a differ-
ence in the lives of juveniles and
you want each generation to be
better than the last. I have been
most disappointed in the
increase in juvenile crime.
We've tried prevention through
our programs and a lot of offi-
cers have been working one-on-
one to help turn things around,"
Moore said.
He will continue, he said, to
work with juveniles.
While his immediate plans
are not set in stone, Moore said
he will "something" other than
staying around the house with a
ever-dwindling "honey-do" list.
He's not willing to reveal his age
but says he has the years to retire
from Quincy and that he intends
to look at other opportunities.
"I'm not going to sit around
the house too long and do
chores, I might start liking not
going to work," he said.

The Gadsden County Times June 12, 2008 7


From KES on Page 4
He grinned and said, "She must be
pretty smart." I couldn't tell if he was
complimenting her... or in a round
about way saying I was too ugly to
have a good looking wife. We both
understood the academic requirements
at Vanderbilt made it next to impossible
for the school to compete in the SEC.
Before I could mention the weak side
linebacker Conway was asking about
Art Rooney and Rocky Bleier. I ate my
chicken and listened intently as Coach
Widenhofer fondly, and patiently,
recalled those Super Bowl'era years


with the Steelers. He hardly mentioned
big wins or championships; he dwelled
on the players and relationships. He
spoke of family. The closeness they
shared; the antics on and off the field
that makes a team a team. And,, oh
yeah, they could play a little football,
too! You could feel the love still in his
voice decades after the fact. I'm telling
you, I was most impressed!
1 tried to raise my hand and ask how
he coached the strong safety to "get up"
in run support. Were there situations
where you could drop an end off to


cover the flat? And how did they adjust
when the offense used motion to "flip
the strength"? But, now, Jim was telling
the Coach how they played football in
South Philadelphia back in the old
days!
We ate everything except the green
beans and Woody got up to address the
Lions Club.
He immediately moved down to
stand, and talk, directly in front of the
six high school football players that
were invited as special guest. He started
out by complimenting them for their
I,


efforts and he spent a great deal of the
talk on those guys keeping their noses
clean, working hard and amounting to
something. He didn't exactly ignore the
rest of us.. .but you could see where his
heart was.
The Coach wasn't going to waste an
opportunity to influence in a most
positive way a young man that showed
an active interest in the sport he loved!
In my heart, I was giving him a
standing ovation.
The time flew by! His Peyton
Manning story was priceless. As were


the Webster-Lambert fights and Mean
Joe Green's driving ability. He also
reminded us once or twice that defense
is where it's at!
If he'd a'played with us back in that
field beside Bobby Gwaltney's house, I
would have chosen him first every
'time! You can't pay a man a higher
compliment than that...


Respectfully,

Kes

From DAD on Page 4


necessary, recruit Dads to be
there for children who need them.
The impact of positive parental
guidance cannot be overstated. In
Proverbs Chapter XXII, Verse 6
we 'read......"Train up a child in
the way he should go,
and when he is old, he will not
depart from it."
Shared below is my own Dad's
story.......one that I am pleased
to give you as a gift.


My 'Dad was 60 when I was
born. Not only was he the oldest
Dad on the block, he
was older than all of my friends'
grandfathers. He was also a blind
man having lost his sight in his
early 50s. After a few days of
blurred vision, he became totally
blind. The doctors guessed it was
vascular, perhaps an aneurysm on
the optic nerve.
It's said that when one sense
goes the others perk up a bit.
Well, eight years after my Dad
went blind, I came along! Some
things in life don't require good
vision!
Growing up with a blind Dad
wasn't easy. Sometimes his
blindness frightened me.
On occasion I would play blind,
walking through a room with my
eyes tightly shut feeling nly way
with outstretched arms and
walking in a halting gait
wondering how my Dad managed


to move around with such
effortless grace.
Beginning at age 9, it was my
responsibility to read for my Dad
- mostly newspaper columns,
editorials and letters from his
friends. Walter Cronkite was'his
TV news anchor; I read the
opinions.
When I read for him he listened
to me struggle through the tough
words with patience.... I had to
spell out a few. But I'll never.
forget the light that would shine
from his blind eyes when I got to
a phrase in an article or friend's
letter that moved him a new fact
or a fresh angle on an issue of
concern. When that light went on,
I knew I was doing a good job.
He couldn't see my smile but I
knew he sensed it.
My Dad never went to school
one day in his life. He was an
immigrant who' came to this
country at the turn of the century
to escape the tyranny of forced
"conscription" in the Russian
Czarist Army. The teenage boys
gathered from the shtetles were
not really being recruited or given
uniforms.....they were forced to
run through the woods, used as
human target practice, to hone the
skills of the sharpshooters.
Those few who survived
feigned death, crawled back to
the village to warn the others, like
my father, to run away and escape
to the west. He and a friend,
Benny, left their families at age


14, working their way through
Poland over a three-year period to
save enough to board a ship in
Danzig (now Gdansk) for the
New World...for survival and to
be free.
My Dad spoke five languages,
but was versed in the language of
politics the best. He believed it
was politics that forced those
young kids to run through the
woods as human prey, and it was
politics and policies that needed
to be influenced at every stage of
his life.
My Dad never hesitated to share
his personal stories and his
generation's history. Most of my
knowledge of the 20th Century is
rooted in his accounts of life's
struggles, successes, and failures.
As I contemplate Dad's Day I
think of how different my
childhood would have been if I
had a different father,...One who
was not blind, who could play
catch, or take me to a movie, or
compliment my drawings. Yet, I
know I was enriched by being
with a wise old man, helping to
-narrate his life's events. For as
long as I can remember, I saw for
two people. That was both an
obligation, and an opportunity.
Every memory is a subjective
vision of the past. All of us recall
our childhoods with a blend of
joy and regret. The .pleasure was
balanced with pain. Some of us
never really knew our fathers -
lost to war, alcohol, or


abandonment. Some feared their
father's anger or coldness but
deeply respected his hard work
and dedication to family. Some
men live up to what's expected of
them, others stumble, yet few do
not try to do their best.
I think of Dad's Day now 35-
plus years after my Dad's death -
as a chance to cherish the gifts he
gave me that had no wrapping
paper. I believe his influence
lives in the work I do, my
appreciation of others' challenges,
and the relationship I have built
with my own two sons who never
got to meet the old guy with the
grey beard and bright, shining
eyes.
I implore you think of the life
lessons we've learned good or
bad from our fathers. Let's
honor them by emulating the
good, overcoming the bad, and
sending a signal to our children,
in both word and action, that they
are valued.
One of the most significant
ways to heed the commandment
"Honor Thy Father and Thy
Mother" is to,make a contribution
in our parents' name to a charity
which
reflects the values we've learned
from those who paved our paths.
Or volunteer to read to a child,
visit a lonely elder, or send a note
to a long-lost friend.
What better honor than to give
of ourselves in the name of those
who gave so much to us?

NOLES HEADED TO OMAHA
lis been a lone eight years wait
biut the Flornd. State baseball team is
headed to the College World Series
a..nun after i inning their Super
Regional o\ er Wichita State last week-
end in Tallahassce.
The Seminoles lost their first
amnie in the three game series like they
did in legion play the weekend, before
last. But once the bats got hot there
i t's no wa\ FSU would be denied a
long .twaitcd m ip to the mid-land.
Fellow ACC members, Miami
and Nonth Carolina, will join Florida
State in the CWS. SEC teams, Georgia
and LSU also made the tournament.
Rice and California teams. Stanford'
and Fresno State round out the field.
The Seminoles and Stanford open


the tournament at 2 pm Saturday v. lth
Miami playing Geoigia at 7 pmn. Those
four teams make up one part of the
double-eliminatiou bi jackets. The sutr-
vivor of this bracket w ill meet the sur-
isLor of the North Carolina, Rice,
Fresno State. and LSU bracket in a best
two of three format for the CWS
Championship beginning June 23.
FSU carnes a potent batting
attack to Omaha as the Seminoles lead
the nation in hitting average. They also
got plenty of power led by catcher
Buster Posey who has 26 homers.
The Senunoles biggest disadvan-
tage may be the fact that Miami is in
the same bracket. Florida State has the
most wins of any team in the tourna-
ment with 54. Miami has the fewest
losses with 9.

Florida State faces limited enrollment, lean budget year



Cuts could mean $100 million loss to local economy, university president says


TALLAHASSEE Florida State University, is
dealing with a $32 million loss in state funding by
eliminating more than 250 positions, limiting
enrollment by 2,000 students, cutting back student
services, anti deferring campus maintenance and
selected programs. President T.K. Wetherell said
Tuesday.
The university will officially unveil its budget-
slashing plan for 2008-09 when the Board of
Trustees meets June 12-13. In an unprecedented
move, the BOT also will adopt a 2009-10 budget
based on current revenue projections. Such proac-
tive planning has allowed FSU to stabilize its
budget and avoid even harsher cuts.
"Recognizing the revenue crisis that was loom-
ing in the state, the FSU administration, trustees
and Faculty Senate Steering Committee began to
look at options a year and a half ago to soften the
inevitable financial blow," Wetherell said.
The trustees held a special board meeting in
January 2008 to put contingency plans in place.
"They directed the administration to do whatever
was necessary to handle budget cuts without sur-
rendering quality," Wetherell said.
"But something had to give. And what gave
was enrollment. The university's only viable
option was to begin to limit enrollment to only the
number of students that the state had approved and
funded. FSU had to close its doors to a lot of tal-
ented students in order to ensure the ones already


here would receive the education they deserved."
Despite careful planning, FSU still faces diffi-
cult challenges, Wetherell said. It will open class-
es in August with:
A faculty and staff work force facing the
prospect of no raises in two years.
Approximately $32 million less in recur-
ring operating funds than a year ago despite a
modest tuition increase.
At least 2,000 fewer students than typical-
ly would have been enrolled: about 1,200 fewer
freshmen and 800 fewer transfer students.
A returning student body that still includes
about 600 students for whom the state has provid-
ed no state funding.
More than 200 faculty and staff positions
eliminated or not filled as a result of lack of fund-
ing.
The /loss of more than 100 new faculty
positions tha would have been created.
Iihplementation of the Pathways of
Excellence cluster hiring initiative extended from
five to seven years.
Larger classes.
Less availability of computer labs.
Fewer full-time faculty and more teaching
assistants, graduate assistants and adjunct faculty
doing the teaching.
A 10-percent reduction in the university's
$25-million utility bill.


Adjusted hours for the National High
Magnetic Field Laboratory at FSU to accomplish
a goal of a $500,000 utility savings for that facili-
ty.
Travel restrictions on faculty to scientific
and professional conferences as well as staff pur-
suing professional development programs.
Services reduced or in some cases priva-
tized, such as reduced mail delivery.
Reductions in the number of staff training
offerings and counselors available through the
Employee Assistance Program.
Buildings cleaned less frequently; grass
mowed less often; trash collection curtailed.
Reductions in new or replacement equip-
ment purchases.
The lack of funding already has cost FSU val-
ued assets -- rising young stars and veteran facul-
ty members who were recruited away. At least 62
have left since August (27 tenured, 35 tenure-earn-.
ing), many for higher-paying jobs elsewhere.
The trustees and the administration are bon-
cerned about faculty and staff facing $4/gallon gas
and higher grocery bills and recognize the need to
take action to hold onto the university's most tal-
ented employees at all -levels, Wetherell said.
He cited the recent successful recruitment of
outstanding new faculty through the Pathways of
Excellence initiative as a bright spot on the hori-
zon, but warned that this nationally recognized


program cannot carry the entire university.
Retaining talent doesn't just affect the class-
room, Wetherell said.
A revenue crisis that reduces jobs, local pur-
chasing and student enrollment, for example, can
be expected to have a significant impact on the
region's economy.
"Our economists tell us that jobs directly and
indirectly related to FSU total nearly 21 percent of
employment in the Tallahassee area," Wetherell
said. "We generate 40,000 jobs locally, 44,000
statewide. Based on student spending, the univer-
sity budget and visitors' spending at FSU, our eco-
nomic impact on the state economy is estimated at
$3.3 billion."
The cuts announced Tuesday and the ramifica-
tions of the adjustments along with continued rev-
enue shortfall to the university could represent as
much as a $100-million loss to the local economy
for te 2008-09 academic year, Wetherell said.
"Declining state revenues and underfunding of
higher education in Florida have put Florida State
in a difficult place, but we saw it coming," he said.
"FSU has taken aggressive steps to stabilize its
budget and turn back serious threats to quality by
limiting enrollment. We had no choice. We will
protect the integrity of the teaching, research and
service mission of the university and continue to
enhance our standing as one of the top research
and graduate education institutions in the nation."


Hydrilla Gnats going to BCWC National Championship


Special to the Times

The Hydrilla Gnats Bass
Club six-man team, fearfully
referred to as the "Swarm", has
once again proven that it can go
anywhere and catch fish.
The scene this time was the
Skeeter Boats BASS Club
World Championship Regional
Qualifier on Lake Wheeler in
Alabama May 20-23.
Only the top eight teams
could advance to the Skeeter
Boats BCWC National
Championship October 6 11
where they would be fishing for
six fully rigged Skeeter Bass


Boats valued at over $250,000.
Captain Chris Neely and his
ragged bunch, Angelo
-Koudourakis, Mike Sloan, Paul
Tyre, Sean Neel and Mike
Prindle headed north in search
of a seat at nationals.
"We thought we needed to
average ten pounds per day per
boat in order to make it", said
Angelo, "We needed more."
The first day of the competi-
tion showed promise as team
members Paul Tyre and Mike
Prindle brought in a limit of five
bass- weighing 13 pounds 9
ounces to lead the teams weight
Heading into day two, the


Swarm was precariously
perched in the number four spot
with eleven other teams within
five pounds.
"It was tight, but I was sure
that we had the fish to keep us in
position", said team Captain
Chris Neely.
Leading the Swarm this time
was the team of Angelo
Koudourakis and Mike Prindle
who brought 13 pounds 9
ounces of largemouth to the
scales.
The Hydrilla Gnats Swarm
slipped slightly to the seventh
position after two days with a
total of 63 pounds and 8 ounces,


but it was enough to secure their
position at the BCWC National
Championship.
The Hydrilla Gnats would
like to thank the staff and own-
ers of Wingate's Lodge for all
their help.
"Without the support of our
sponsors it would not be possi-
ble for us to focus on the fish-
irig." commented Mike Prindle,
"They are the ones that deserve
all the credit."

the Swarm and how you can be

Outta the Woods

FWC: Apply now for quota


permits time is running out


Every hunter knows you have
the best chance of catching a
monster buck off-guard during
the first part of hunting season.
That's why many of us enjoy
hunting the archery and muzzle-
loading gun seasons and, why
we can't miss opening weekend
of the general gun season.
If you plan to hunt on public
land next season, you should
know many of Florida's wildlife
management areas (WMAs)
require a quota permit to hunt
during archery, muzzleloading
gun and the first nine days of
general gun season.
There are several types of
quota permits and most are
issued by random drawing. No
costs are involved with quota
permits, but hunters may apply
only once for each type of per-
mit during the first phase of the
application period.
The application period for'
archery/muzzleloading gun and
general gun quota hunt permits
runs June 2-12, so you better get
on the stick. There also are
quota permits available for
hunts involving airboats, track
vehicles, quail, youths, families
and mobility-impaired. The
application period for these
hunts is June 25 to July 9. You
may apply as early as 10 a.m.
(EDT) on the first day of the
application period and have
until midnight on the last day.
Two of these quota permits
are unique to the state's South
Region. An airboat quota per-
mit is required for anyone wish-
ing to hunt out of an airboat on
Everglades and Francis S.
Taylor WMA in Broward and


Miami-Dade counties. But, if
you'd rather hunt off a track
vehicle there, or on Rotenberger
or Holey Land WMAs in Palm
Beach County, you'll need a
track vehicle quota permit.
In the western Panhandle,
hunters wanting to quail hunt at
the field trial area of Santa Rosa
County's Blackwater WMA
must have a quail quota permit.
The FWC offers youth hunts
for deer at Camp Blanding
WMA in Clay County and
Andrews WMA in Levy County.
If you have children ages 8-15,
and you want them to have the
chance of experiencing one of
these great hunts,' apply for a
youth hunt quota permit.
During these hunts, only the
youngsters may hunt, and they
and their adult supervisors are
the only people allowed on the
area.
This coming season, there
will be family hunts on 15 dif-
ferent WMAs! Those areas are:
.Matanzas, -Andrews, Devil's
Hammock, Dinner Island
Ranch, Lafayette Creek,
Allapattah Flats, Perdido River,
Cary, Okaloacoochee Slough,
Blackwater, and the newly
established areas of Belmore,
Four Creeks, Hatchet Creek,
Thomas Creek Kings Road Unit
and Hilochee Osprey Unit.
You must have a family hunt
quota permit to hunt these areas
during specific time periods.
Should you get drawn, the per-
mit requires one adult to take
one or two youths hunting.
Disabled hunters, certified
mobility-impaired, can apply for
mobility-impaired quota per-
mits. These permits allow


exclusive access to general-gun
hunt on eight of the state's better
public hunting areas.
If any of this is starting to
sound exciting to you, you'll
want to get ahold of the correct
quota permit worksheet so you
can apply for one or more of
these great opportunities. All
quota permit worksheets are at
MyFWC.com/hunting under
"Quota." General gun and
archery/muzzleloading gun
quota worksheets also are avail-
able at tax collectors' offices and
license agents. Worksheets for
other quota permits are obtain-
able at FWC regional offices.
Once you've completed the
worksheet, you may submit it to
any license agent or tax collec-
tor's office. If you have a valid
Florida driver license, you also
can go through the Internet at
MyFWC.com/hunting.
The random drawings to
decide who gets general gun and
archery/muzzleloading gun
quota hunt permits take place in
late June. In early July, you'll
receive, by mail, a quota permit
if you were selected. You
should know by late August if
you've drawn one of the other
quota permits. Also, the results
are posted after each drawing at
MyFWC.com/hunting under
"Limited Entry Hunts."


Tony Young is a media rela-
tions coordinator for the
FWC's Division of Hunting
and Game Management. You
can reach him with questions
about quota permits and how to
apply at

Times Editor
The person in charge of the
State of Florida's checkbook,
Alex Sink, was in Quincy June 4
to meet with elected officials and
average citizens. She said that as
Df Tuesday night, there was about
$20 billion in the citizens of
Florida's checking account.
Sink, the Chief Financial
Officer, called herself the state's
fiscal watchdog.
"I am in charge of ways you
tax dollars can and cannot be
spent," she said to an audience of
about 100 people during lunch at
the Gadsden Art Center.
But that's not all that Sinks does
in the run of a day. She is also the
state's Fire Marshal and which
investigated arson as well as
insurance fraud. She introduced
Quincy native Mike Perkins who
is the investigator assigned to this'
area.
Her office, she said, helps
citizens learn how to fight back
against fraud. From identity theft
fraud, to personal injury
protection (vehicles) to worker's
compensation fraud, predatory
lending, investment fraud, to
unlicensed entity fraud, Sink's
office will investigate.
"If you borrow money for a
home or car, invest in stocksand
securities, insure your family
possessions, there are plenty of
frauds and scams ready to take
advantage of you," she said.
She also talked briefly on a


program called "My Safe Florida
Home" that is designed help
people protect their homes during
hurricanes. She said that
Floridians must invest in building
standards techniques that will
strengthen homes and
communities against the damage
inflicted by hurricanes.
"How many of you have had
your homes inspected by the free
inspectors offered by the State?"
she asked. When not a hand went
upwards, she introduced another
Gadsden County native, Arthur
Youngblood, who is the outreach
coordinator in the Bureau of
Consumer Assistance
Qualified homeowners can
receive a matching grant of up to
$5,000 from the state to help pay
the cost of hurricane-resistance
improvements recommended by
the inspection report. Also,
homes that are strengthened with
hurricane resistant improvements
are less likely to suffer damage
and may be eligible for a
.discount on insurance premiums.
Elected officials were elated
when Sink said she was
concerned about economic
development in rural
communities.
"I will take personal
responsibility to go back and
develop ideas that you might be
doing here. These are tough
economic times and when things
get tough, you have to sit down
and re-think things," she said.
Sink suggested we promote the
county's natural resources such as


Florida Chief Financial Offico
Mayor James Hinson.
lakes and green spaces as assets
that can be leveraged into visitors
who bring dollars and generate
jobs.
"This is a room full of creative
thinking people, Hopefully the
economic situation will creep
back up. But you must do
something to increase you wage
levels which means that your
education system is critical.
Employers will want to know if
you can supply employees," Sink
said.
'At the end of her 30-minute
speech, Sink got everyone
interested when she talked about
the' Buieau of Unclaimed
Property that comes under her


umbrella.
"We're holding accounts from
1961. All of you should go to
www.FLTreasureHunt.org. Put in
every name you've had or call 1-
888-258-2253. Just last night,
Tuesday, I delivered a check to a
man for $163,000 from an
investment he made in a bank a
long time ago and the bank went
under," she said.
Sink said that anybody could
have money in unclaimed
property.
She said that her husband even
found $65 he was owed from an
apartment rental deposit several
years ago.
"You never know," she said.

Wild Adventures rocks with
ZZ Top June 14

Valdosta, GA- They sai
practice makes perfect, so with
almost 40 years under their
belt to perfect their distinctive
bluesy-rock sound, ZZ Top
should put on one great show
at Wild Adventures on
Saturday, June 14.
Billy Gibbons, Dusty Hill and
Frank Beard have comprised
ZZ Top since the bands
inception in 1969 and hold the
distinction of being one of the
few bands that has endured the
years without any personnel
changes. Forming in Houston,
Texas, the band toured and cut
two albums in their first three
years., but it wasnt until the
release of their third effort,
Tres Hombres, in 1973 that
the band gained wider
recognition.
ZZ Top's third album
contained."'LaGrange," a song
that is now considered one of
classic rock's best. Throughout
the rest of the 7/0's, the band
produced such hits as "rush,"
"I'm Bad, I'm Nationwide,"
"Cheap Sunglasses" and. "I
Thank You." In 19,91, the
band stftick eold again kvith

Another 1981 phenomenon
would take ZZ Top's career to a
newer heiaht. With the advent
of M-rv, the band found a new
creative avenue. Adding a
synthesizer sound to their
6lues-rock base, ZZ Ibp
became one of the first bands
to produce music videos that

the standard "band in concert"
production. Sporting their
trademark sunglasses and
beards (ironi"ly, despite his
name, Frank Beard is the on1v
member with simply
mustache) the band told a
humorous story in each video,
scoring big with numbers such
as "Legs," "Sharp Dressed
Man" and "Gimme All Your

Hits continued through the
rest of the 80's and 90's for ZZ

From fishing to bike-fixing, kids have big plans for Dad


By ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

At "The Land of the Little People"
just outside Quincy on the Havnj.i
Highway, kids were just starting ti .
think about Father's Day.
"I know it's Sunday," said Kex i n
an excited 6-year-old Kevin. He
plans to draw a picture of a mnun
hunting and give it to his fatihe.

and fish.
"My Dad likes to hunt deer and
turkeys so that's what I'm going It.
draw," he said.
Eight-year-old Christian said he ',.
going to take is father boating
Sunday. Once they arrive in
Newport, plans are to have .,
cookout in honor of the main nm.n
of the day, Mike Brookshire.
"I'm going to help him fix his dut.
bike and he's going to help me f \
mine. His has a broken clutch and .'
mine has a flat tire," Christian saild.
admitting that he'll only be able ir -o
fix the clutch with a lot of.guidance '
from Dad.
"I love my Dad a lot," he added.
Johnny Hinson lives in Marianiii.
but nothing is going to stop his Q-
year-old daughter, Sheunvra, from
keeping in touch. Proud of her report card and her recent promotion to
fourth grade, she plans to share her achievements with Dad.
"My gift to him will be my report card. I got As, Bs and I got all Es
(Excellent) in conduct," she said.
She says that it would be an extra special day if her dad could come to
visit her.
Taniya, 6, know exactly what she was getting her Dad Sunday. "We're
going to Chuck-E-Cheese for his gift," she said. Terrance Monroe is a
lucky man, his daughter is absolutely positive that an afternoon at
Chuck-E-Cheese is exactly what he wants.
For her Dad, she said Sunday at Chuck-E-Cheese will be "just like
Christmas."
Scott Brown's son, Jacob, has learned a lot from his Dad. He really
wants to take his dad fishing Sunday but he has to watch the weather.
"For father's Day, you get him Dad stuff. He likes to fish and I want to
take him fishing but if it's too hot the fish won't come out, especially red
bellies," he said.
No, there will be no fishing pole as a gift for Scott this Sunday, unless
someone else buys his one.
"He don't need no fishing poles because we have a bunch of them in the
shed," Jacob, 6, said.
Plan B is for Jacob to take Scott for a dip in the river if the fishing
doesn't work out.

Father's Day is Sunday, June 15,

idea while listening to a Mother's

Having been raised by her
father, William Jackson Smart,
after her mother died, she wanted
him.to know how special he was
to her. He was born in June so
she chose to hold the first Father's
day celebration in Spokane on


June 19, 1910.
In 1924, President Calvin
Coolidge publicly supported a
plan for a national holiday. In
1926, a National Father's Day
Committee was formed in New
York City. Father's Day was
recognized by a Joint Resolution
of Congress in 1956. In 1966,

Try a green sea turde adoption certificate


This Father's Day, give your dad
a gift he will always remember.
By adopting an endangered sea
turtle, you and your dad can
commemorate the father of sea
turtle conservation, Dr. Archie
Carr, and help these ancient
mariners survive.
Sea turtles have roamed the
Earth's oceans for about 200
million years, since before the
time of the dinosaurs and long
before man. Early exploiters
witnessed these fascinating
creatures traveling the seas in
large fleets. But today, all seven
species face extinction-ocean
pollution, poorly planned coastal
development, and demand for
turtle meat, eggs and shells have
taken their toll on the turtle
population.
"Threats to sea turtles and their
ocean habitats also affect the
health and well being of people.
Adopting a sea turtle for Father's
Day is a great way to show our
fathers how everyone can enjoy a
healthy environment and ensure
the company of amazing sea
turtles for many generations to
come," said David Godfrey,
Executive Director of Caribbean


Conservation Corporation.
With Archie Carr's birthday and
World Sea Turtle Day so close to
Father's Day, a symbolic adoption
is a great opportunity for you to
share our founder's conservation
efforts with fathers everywhere.
For a tax-deductible donation of
$25 or more, Caribbean
Conservation Corporation (CCC)
will send your dad a personalized
adoption certificate, a sea turtle
conservation guide, a logo
sticker, a magnet and a one-year
subscription to CCC's newsletter,
all in a beautiful folder.


To adopt a sea turile for
yourself, a friend, or a loved one.
call the Caribbean Conservation
Corporation at 800-678-7853 or
visit us our online gift adoption
form on the' CCC web site
(www.cccturtle.org).
Caribbean Conservation
Corporation is an international'
nonprofit and the world's oldest
marine turtle research and
conservation organization.
Founded in 1959 to support the
pioneering work of world-.
renowned naturalist and author,
Dr. Archie Carr.

And they say unto him,


verse of the week:
we have here but five loaves, and two fishes. Matthew 14:7(KJV)


Jesus' disciples had come to
him after listening to him
Teaching the multitude and told
him hlt thec were hungry.
Jesus had the disciples search the
mtiltitlnde for food.
Th' I searched the people that
-5 day and found a small boy who
Sad two fish and five loaves of
b bread in a lunch bag. The
di.,ciples brought it to Jesus and
he began to multiply the food to
Seed the multitude. Just as that
t little boy that day we need to
bring what we have to God and
watch what he will do for us.

Family Time This week:
Spend time this week to read the story of Jesus feeding the multitude as a Fw-Uy..

Local artist wins 'Best of Show' award in Thomasville


Since its inception in 1990, Summer Showcase has become a well- .
known, vibrant exhibition that has featured the excellent work of our
regional artists. William Hugh McKeown, a Quincy artist, is one of
those exceptional artists whose work was chosen to be a part of liis .
year's show.. ..:. .. ... --
On Sunday, June 1 the Thomasville Cultural Center's executive
director, Tricia Collins, presented the Best of Show award to McKeo% n .
for his watercolor titled Flying High. Grace Maloy, the juror for this
year, states, "William Hugh McKeown's painting, 'Flying High,' is .th o pen
powerful seascape painting, executed in the challenging, traditional I
medium of transparent watercolor. This piece is beautifully presented--
the artist's selections of support, mat and framing completing the strength
of this image. The artist's masterful draftsmanship is evident in the piece.
and as in all transparent watercolors, excellent drawing skills .iie
essential. The composition itself is a proud portrait of a fishing vessel.4
delicately rendered and lit. Thus, the disappearing art form (transpareu ..
watercolor) is used to commemorate a disappearing livelihood (fishing I .
in a disappearing environment. Altogether, an amazing and successful
work of art."
The $3,100 awards purse is distributed from Best of Show to Honorable
Mention, a total of seven prizes this year. First Place was given to M.tr,
M. Urquhart, of Tallahassee; Second Place to Cynthia W. Council of ...g .
Moultrie, Georgia; Third Place to Carol Creel from Baton Rouge.
Louisiana; and Award of Merit to Terry Arthur of Tallahassee. TIo%
Honorable Mentions were given to Melinda Cooper and Jim Sampson,
from Monticello and Tallahassee respectively. Out of 161 entries, S .43
percent of the works were accepted and hung in the main galleries of the
Thomasville Cultural Center.
The Showcase also includes an Invitational component. This year
Walter Wager is exhibiting his Fun with Finials that features vessels
crafted from local and exotic woods. Donalee pond-Koenig's wetland ".: .
series of abstract paintings generate very unique spatial illusions created
by the use of acrylics graphite colored pencils and collage. The Gadsden County artist William McKeown with. his painting "Flying High" during the opening
Invitational is exhibited in the Hallway and Permanent Galleries during reception of the 19th Regional Summer Showcase Exhibition at the Thomasville Cultural Center.

Florida Agriculture in the Classroom


training available to teachers, others


Florida Agriculture in the
Classroom, Inc. (FAITC) is a
non-profit organization that
develops and trains teachers and
agriculture industry volunteers
in its agricultural curricula and
materials, which they in turn use
to educate students about the
importance of agriculture. This
curriculum is developed to meet
Sunshine State Standards.
It also provides grant money
to teachers and volunteers for
projects that teach students
where their food comes from,
and the important contributions
Florida Farmers make to their
communities and their state.


Florida Agriculture in the
Classroom is funded by sales of
the specialty agricultural license
plate known as the Ag Tag.
The Gadsden chapter of
Florida Ag in the Classroom is
offering the second Annual
Teacher In-Service Training,
free to all teachers in and around
Gadsden County.
Last year there were 35
teachers from Gadsden County
public and private schools that
participated in this training and
received the curriculum and
teaching aids at no charge to the
teachers.
Because of the great success


of this program we have added
15 additional slots for teachers.
This training has been approved
by the Gadsden County Sdhool
Board for Professional
Development Points.
The training will be held July
17 at the North Florida Research
and Educational Center
(NFREC) on Highway 267/Pat
Thomas Parkway from 8:30-
3:30.

previous school year and enter
the new school year more pre-
pared."

S THE SAVVY
senior



Dear Savvy Senior

What all can be done to com-
bat dry eye'?

Blinking Bonnie



Dear Bonnie,

While there's currently no
cure for dry eye, there are plen-
ty of things you can do to keep
your symptoms under control.
Here's what you should know.

Dry Eyes

Itching, burning, and even
gritty-feeling eyes are among
the most conummnon reasons for


visits to the eye doctor and the
older you get, the more likely
you are to have these symptoms.
The condition, known as dry
eye syndrome, affects millions
of Americans, most of who are
over the age of 40. But discom-
fort isn't the only issue. Light
sensitivity and blurred or fluctu-
ating vision are common symp-
toms too, and worse yet, dry
eyes are more likely to get
scratched or infected, which
could damage your vision per-
manently.

Why it Happens

People get dry eye syndrome
because they either don't pro-
duce enough tears to keep their
eyes properly lubricated, or
because they produce poor qual-
ity tears. In some cases dry eye
is caused by other medical con-
ditions (such as diabetes, aller-
gies, rosacea, rheumatoid arthri-
tis, lupus and Sjogren's syn-
drome) and treating these condi-
tions could alleviate the prob-


lem. But for other sufferers it
can be caused by age (tear pro-
duction tends to diminish as you
age), eye conditions, eyelid
problems, certain medications,
environmental factors and even
LASIK surgery. Dry eye syn-
drome is also more common in
women, especially after
menopause.

Remedies

The first step in dealing with
dry eyes is to check your
lifestyle and surroundings for
factors that might be contribut-
ing to the problem and make
adjustments:

Air check: Furnaces in
the winter and air conditioning
in the summer dry out the air
and can worsen dry eyes. So buy
a humidifier and keep your
home humidity between 30 and
50 percent. Also keep your eyes
away from blowing air oscil-
lating and ceiling fans, air vents
- which add to the problem.


Blink: When you're
reading, watching television, or
using a computer, take frequent
breaks because these activities
cause you blink less often.

Avoid irritants: Avoid
smoke-filled places and if you
swim, wear goggles to cut down
exposure to chemicals.

Outside protection:
When you go outdoors, use sun-
glasses that wrap around the
sides of your face. This will help
you protect yourself better from
sun, glare, wind, and dust.

Check your meds:
Atntihistamines and deconges-
tants, diuretics, beta-blockers,
antidepressants and over-the-
counter sleeping pills can all
cause dry eyes. If you're taking
any of these, ask your doctor
about alternatives.

Omega-3s: Studies
show that eating more fish and


other foods rich in omega-3
fatty acids (or take a supple-
nient) helps some people.

Warm compresses: For
a soothing, temporary treatment,
place damp warm compresses
on your eyes (use cold com-
presses if your dryness is due to
allergies or rosacea) and gently
massage the edges of your eye-
lids.
Treatments

If changing your environ-
ment and habits doesn't do the
trick, there are a variety of over-
the-counter eye lubricant drops
(artificial tears) that can help.
However some lubricants con-
tain preservatives that may irri-
tate your eyes. If you experience
a lot of burning, try another
product or opt for a nonpreserv-
ative formula, but don't buy eye
drops that are strictly made to
"get the red out." They won't
help and may even aggravate
your condition. Also available
are over-the-counter gel lubri-


cants that stay on your eye
longer, and lid scrubs for those
with eyelid inflammation.
If the over-the-counter reme-
dies don't help, see your eye
doctor for other options which
could be prescription steroid eye
drops, or a prescription medica-
tion called Restasis. If these
don't help your doctor may sug-
gest punctal plugs small
blockers inserted into the tear
ducts to slow the drainage of eye
moisture.
And finally, if all remedies
and treatments fail, two other
possible solutions include spe-
cially designed goggles (see
www.panoptx.com) that form a
moisture chamber around the
eye, and the Boston Scleral Lens
(see www.bostonsight.org)
which is a custom-fitted pros-
thetic device that creates a reser-
voir over the cornea.

mation see

Southern peas thrive in summer gardens


By Theresa Friday

Growing southern peas in the vegetable garden
is a great Southern tradition. Southern peas are
known as "cowpeas", "field peas", "blackeyes",
"crowders" or just peas.
Varieties are called crowders if the seeds are
spaced so closely that the seed ends are pressed
against each other. Colorless varieties are called
creams. The purple hull group includes varieties
with some purple coloring on their pods.
Southern peas are related to beans, soybeans
and English peas, which all have one thing in
common--their unusual ability to grab fertilizer
out of thin air.
That's right. They're able to take the nitrogen
in the atmosphere' and make it into fertilizer.
Because of this, they can be grown on the poorest
of soils.
Since they make some of their own, they don't
require much added fertilizer. If your soil is rea-
sonably fertile, you might not need to use fertiliz-
er, at least for the first time on new ground.
Southern peas grow on a variety of soils but
grow best in soils with a pH between 5.5 and 6.5.
Avoid planting peas in highly fertile soil. An
excessive nitrogen level stimulates vine growth
and prolongs the period to harvest.
They like warm weather and produce satisfac-
torily under hot conditions. They can be planted
all summer long, April through August, in North
Florida.
Southern pea varieties recommended for


Florida gardens include black-eye, Mississippi
Silver, Texas Cream' 40, Zipper Cream and
Purplehull.
A number of pests love southern peas.
Common insect pests are leaf-feeding worms,
leaf-footed and stink bugs, aphids, thrips and spi-
dermites. One significant pest is the cowpea cur-
culio. This insect probes the pods and lays eggs in
the developing seeds. The growing curculio grub
will eventually eat the infested seed.
Old-time gardeners referred to these peas as
"stung." They wrongly thought they'd been stung
by wasps. Folks would pick these peas out by
hand and discard them before cooking.
Wasps do congregate around southern peas,
but they aren't there to sting the pods. They're
gathering the nectar secreted by nectaries at the
base of the pods.
Southern peas can be harvested at different
stages of maturity. Most gardeners pick them at
the mature-green stage. This is when the pods are
completely filled out, but before they become dry
and hard.
If you grow a lot of peas, you may want to take
them somewhere to be shelled.
Many farmers markets or roadside marketers
have sellers that can make quick work of this
chore.
In a few minutes, they can shell what would
take you several hours.
You can also harvest Southern peas when
they're fully mature, dry and hard. In this state,
they'll last much longer.
