School Board cuts 78 teaching positions


Superintendent, board member Eric Hinson engage in heated debate


By LESLIE ROBERTS
Times General Manager
Gadsden County School Board
members Tuesday night approved
cutting 78 teachers from the payroll by
putting into policy a measure that
mandates only certified teachers be
hired, but not before a loud verbal
exchanged, between School Board
member Eric Hinson and Schools
Superintendent Reginald lames.
Board member Isaac Simmons
initiated the action, listing several
reasons he believes only certified
teachers should work in the
classrooms.


"The Gadsden County School
District, as are a lot of districts in the
state, is in a position of having to
streamline its staff," Simmons said.
"There's a great concern that we
should, have qualified teachers in each
of our classrooms. (Through the
federal No Child Left Behind Act)
there are penalties for not having
certified teachers. Those are penalties
we can no longer afford."
Finance Director Bonnie Wood said
a 2007 audit reflected a roughly
$440,000 penalty to the school district
for not having certified teachers in
each classroom.
Certified teachers are particularly


essential for Title 1 schools, but can be
hard to attract to an area like Gadsden
County where pay rates aren't as high
as in other, larger districts. -
Simmons said public school
enrollment drops 1-2 percent each
year, and he views a policy that
permits only the hiring of certified
teachers as a way to correct that trend.'
"Now we've got private schools,
we've got parochial schools, we've got
charter schools. We've got to be
competitive," he said. "There's a great
concern that we should have qualified
teachers in each of our classrooms ... I
think that's why some parents are
reluctant to put their children in that


Baby Fair brings families, resources together

Friday is HIV testing day
' *' o "
Health department to offer free screenings

BY ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor.

One out of every five people may have AIDS but don't know it. That's because they have never
been tested Friday, June 27, is National AIDS Screening Day and people all over the nation are
urged to get tested.
Locally, according to Keith Blocker at the Gadsden County Health Department, about 20 people
in county test positive annually. He said that for a county the size of Gadsden that number is high
but, Blocker said, the county is a long, long way from being number one in the state. Last 'year"
over 300,000 people were tested statewide with over 60,000 of them testing positive.
"We will be testing from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Friday at the Gadsden County Health Department
and at Flint Gardens Apartments in Chattahoochee. The test takes between 30 minutes and an
hour because.there are a certain number of questions that have to be answered," Blocker said.,
The testing is free but making an appointment is suggested.
"We need men to lead the way in getting tested and make sure that their families are not at risk.
We have to get more nmen involved in the fight. This cannot be described as a gay disease
anymore. Heterosexuals between the age of 13 and 29 is the largest growing group," he said.
For more information, or to make an appointment, call Blocker at 875-8794 or call 1-800 FLA

classroom and move them to another
school district or to a private school."
Simmons made a motion to hire only
certified teachers effective
immediately,. with Hinson giving a
second. The. action was approved
unanimously 4-0, with Board
Chairman.. Roger Milton not in
attendance.
Hinson then said all administrators
should be certified.
"If we don't do that, I'm going to
make a motion to withdraw my
.previous motion," he said.

Several draw

opponents in this

year s campaign

By ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
Last Friday at no6n was the last day to qualify to
become a candidate in the August 26 primary election
of the Nov.'4 general election. While some veteran
politicians have to put their campaigns in gear to face
challengers, several Constitutional Officers will be
returned to their jobs unopposed.
Sheriff Morris Young; who four years ago narrowly
defeated Ed Spooner, said he has done his best to serve
the people of Gadsden County and that he appreciates
the trust citizens have put in him .
"I'm happy that the people have given me this vote of
confidence as their sheriff. We still have a long way to
go in addressing problems that face our community.
especially with our young people, but together we can
make our community a great and safe place to live." he
said.
Property Appraiser, Clay VanLandingham, who also
came into office four .years ago, was pleased that he
had not drawn opposition.
"I hope this is a reflection of the job my staff and I
are doing here. It is a vote of confidence from the
people;" he said.
Shirlek Green Knight, Supervisor of Elections also
thanked the citizens of the County for their faith in her
ability to carry out her duties.
"I appreciate them having the confidence in me to runt
their elections." she said.
Neither Clerk of the Courts Nicholas Thomas nor
Tax Collector Dale Summerford have opposition this
year.,
The only Constitutional Officer to draw opposition is
Superintendent of Schools Reginald James.l He faces
two challengers, Dr. William Harvey. and Emma
Owens. Both James and Harvey are Democrats and
one of the two (whoever wins the August 26 election)'
will face Owens, who has no part) affiliation, in the
November 4 election;
The three county commissioners who are at the end
of their four-year term all face challenges. In District 1,

Change on horizon for City of Quincy


By ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

Nothing is written in stone, but a
workshop Tuesday afternoon
with the Quincy City
Commission made it clear that
changes are on the horizon.
Interim City Manager Jack
McLean suggested a restructur-
ing plan for the city that will
save over $1 million dollars.
That plan includes not filling
vacant positions, offering early
retirement for some employees,
consolidating departments, and
eliminating over 30 jobs.
"I asked each department head

to look at their budgets and pro-
vide real cuts. They identified
positions and discussions will
follow as to how the city can
' continue to work efficiently and
not affect the safety and welfare
of the citizens," McLean said.
No employees are exempt and
top management as well as
lower positions will be scruti-
nized. Reductions, if accepted,
will be based on class and func-
tion.
McLean said he has consulted
with cities the size of Quincy
and none of them had as many
employees as Quincy.
The city, according to McLean


is $2.9 million dollars short in
finances and that drastic meas-
urers have to be taken if the city
is going to get back on solid
financial footing in the next few
years.
"This is a restructuring and from
what I have heard, we want a
smaller more efficient govern-
ment The reality is that we can-
not afford the government we
have," McLean said.
He said that if the city of Quincy
had even kept up with the rate of
inflation over the past 10 years,
the city would have at least an
additional million dollars.
"I have not been in favor of any


of the reductions. I propose that
we reduce the number of hours
employees work per week.
When you lay off employees
you have other effects. These
people pay utilities and they pay
taxes," Commissioner Sherrie
Taylor said.
"I feel this government is too
big. We have to make sure this
city is staffed in case of any
emergency. My main concern is
where we reduce. I hope we're
not reducing in places that are
already understaffed," said
Mayor Andy Gay.
Several other workshops are
planned in July.

Bombs bursting in air


Now folks, I like to take credit when
I can. But this one wasn't my idea.
As a matter of fact the only reason I
climbed the water tower at all was
because Bobby, had more cherry
bombs than he could carry.
The water tower was by far the
tallest building in town. The Parke
Theatre was two stories and it came
in a distant second. Our town was
mostly small...... and short. If you
agreed with Bobby's thinking that an
aerial fireworks display would be a
fitting way to end the Fourth of July
celebration we had to get an airplane
or find some awful tall place to
launch a few rockets. It wasn't the
first time we'd snuck though .the
fence "protecting" the tower and
shinnied up one leg until we could
catch the ladder leading to the top.
And the climb wasn't too bad-if you
didn't look down.
Bobby Brewer was on the cutting
edge of near bout everything that
went on in our class. He had what
Miss Polly Rucker described as "an
active mind". And let me tell you,
that could be a blessing.....or a
curse!
About half way up I was regretting
eating that third hot dog with the
extra onions. And the second root
beer float. Bobby was three rungs
,,ahead of me. 'Mary E. Pendleton was-
pushing from below. "Move it, Kes.
We're falling behind." I don't know
why Bobby let Mary E. in on. this
deal. I reckon he had more cherry
bombs than both of us could carry!

ioochee you'll


be glad you did
By Michelle Burdick
Gadsden County Chamber of Commerce
Vice President of Membership


Looking for a quiet drive or
bicycle ride on endlessly winding
" roads? Or, how about a friendly
Schat while relaxing on a
- comfortable couch in a quaint
: little store? Better yet, after all
that activity what would be better
than filling your belly with
delicious southern home cooking
with all of the fixings and none of
the work?
Most Gadsden County citizens
are already familiar with
spending their spare time in
;similar ways in Havana and
- Quincy. But, instead of choosing
.'Tallahassee as your alternate
destination, local residents
shouldn't overlook the unique
possibilities offered in
Chattahoochee. With gas prices
steadily increasing, Gadsden
County communities should be
: turning to one other in support of
each others businesses instead of
making that same twenty-plus
mile drive to Tallahassee.
I took the Chamber to the ,road
'June 19 to visit Chattahoochee
area businesses and, as a relative
*outsider to that community, tried
to learn as much insider
information about the area as I
could. As I drove down a quiet
and traffic-free Highway 90, I
,realized how much of a hustle
and bustle town Quincy has
become.; I counted my blessings
,as I also thought about driving to
',meetings in Tallahassee and the
',stress of dealing with overly
i aggressive drivers.
SMy arrival at the City of
Chattahoochee Utility
Department was heralded by
amazed local squirrels that
'commenced running along power
cables and blowing the
transformers. Lee Garner,
Chattahoochee's city manager,
told me the squirrels still hadn't
learned not to grab two wires at


the same time. In .
light of their
response to my
visit, I determined
it was time to create -
a little extra stir in
the air.
Lee and I were
joined by Chamber
board members,
Ron Pickens from
Buy-Rite Drugs and
Dick D'Alemberte
of D'Alemberte
Realty, as we
surprised Northside
Seafood owner,
James Atkins, by
announcing he was
recently selected as
the Chamber's May
Member of the
Month. We
presented him with No visit to C
a wall plaque from N.
Allen Trophy & Dam.
Awards and a sign
printed by
Shopper's Express Printing &
Copy, each local sponsors and
Chamber members in Quincy.
James has been a member of the
Chamber for several years and his
business stands out because of his
hard work and dedication to the
ideals of servicing his
community. Not only has James
been, a member of, the
Chattahoochee City Council for
over sixteen years he's also a
pastor at a local church and is
very active in the prison ministry
while serving as the vice
chairman of the Three River's
Ministerial Association.
After leaving James with the
task of finding the perfect place
to hang his plaque, Lee and I
continued on to visit current
Chamber members, Capital City
Bank and SunTrust, as well as
other area businesses like the


Chattahoochee is complete without a stop at the Jim Woodruff


Chattahoochee Post Office,
D'Alemberte Realty, Flint Garden
Apartments, Eric Taylor
Insurance Agency, Dollar
General, Buy-Rite Drugs, and the
Kangaroo Express. I ended my
afternoon by browsing a unique
gift shop called Treasures and
More and chatting with the co-
owner, Jenny Duncan. I would
like to thank each of these
businesses for their warm
welcomes as I interrupted their
busy day. I truly appreciated the
time they spent talking with me.
Although it was my intention to
visit the area businesses and meet
the managers and owners, Lee
reminded me about some of the
other treasures Chattahoochee has
to offer for someone looking for a
little activity.
He reminded me about the
Apalachicola River and told me
that while the water level is


extremely low, kids have been
known to play football on the
sand bar left behind.
Fisherman can satisfy a need to
top state catfish records at Jim
Woodruff Dam. A few picnic
lunches have been eaten at
Cypress Cove Nature Park
located at the Florida State
Hospital. Dog lovers can enjoy
walks at the river's edge at River
Landing as well as some of the
trails near the Chattahoochee RV
Campground and Resort.
All in all, I'm glad I had an
opportunity to spend a day
outside of office walls.
Chattahoochee will definitely be
on my list to enjoy in' the long
summer days coming up. I
encourage. you to spend time in
Gadsden County discovering the
endless possibilities available to
you before planning a trip
somewhere else.


two hot dogs you might have wished
You'd a'backed off a tad!"
VCherry bombs were special; and hard
1to come by back in '59. There were
-no road side "fire works" stands. Pat
#Houston Grocery would get in
severall boxes of regular fire crackers
i week or so before the Fourth. He'd
also have Roman candles. And a few
buzz bombs and an assortment of
bottle rockets. But cherry bombs
were either too expensive to resale or
they were banned by some
gunpowder law. Bobby had ordered
these from Paducah, Kentucky.
A firecracker placed close to the
front would blow the lid open on a
mail box. We learned early in life
that a cherry bomb set anywhere in
that mail receptacle would blow the
seams apart! I wasn't exactly a
fireworks aficionado but if you liked
noise, smoke, flashes of light and
lots of firepower, a cherry bomb was
just what the doctor ordered.
Independence Day was an amazing
holiday when I was twelve years old.
The plain and mostly subdued adults
celebrated this day with pride,
passion, barbeque, patriotism and,
for them, a tripled dipped portion of
fan fair. And down in there amongst
the baked beans, red checked table
cloths, marching band, frog jumping
contest, parading-horses and-ice cold
watermelons a few random bursts of
fireworks were not only acceptable
but even anticipated.
Man, we lived for the Fourth of July!

Breakfast: The most
important, and
maybe most painful,
meal of the day

My survival instinct is strong, if
not always entirely accurate, but
Saturday's graceless display of
inelegance makes me wonder
whether it's safe to go outside.
For the rest of the world, I
mean.
The following is not for the faint
of heart, or, for that matter, my
Mom.
That morning, I spent a leisure-
ly hour with coffee and a news-
paper, anticipating an active,
sunny day that was to begin
with a visit to the Blessing of
the Pets hosted by the Gadsden
County Huniane Society and
First Presbyterian Church in
Havana.
I mean, should I tell this?
Yes, for the greater good. Go
ahead and buy yourself a flak
jacket if you learn I've decided
to cook breakfast.
Any cooking done before noon
or after four cups of coffee can
come to no good.
It's not that we don't eat break-
fast it's just that I usually
serve cereal fortified and
incredibly nutritious cereal, of
course. Well, that's what the box
says, but to be honest, the lep-
rechaun on it inspires not
visions of whole grains or folic
acid but instant wealth or the
occasional, well-timed limerick.
Anyway, it's either, that or
yogurt or cheese toast, menu
items that have proven time and
time again to not cause bodily
injury or death by dismember-
ment.
But not Saturday.
Saturday, I decided a day with
grand potential calls for a grand
breakfast Western omelets.
Biscuits. Bacon. Strawberries.
Sliced strawberries.
You see where this is going,
don't you?
Out came the cutting board, the
paring knife, the strawberries.
The holding of slippery straw-
berries with my left hand.
The slicing and dicing with the
right. It only took two-and-a-
half strawberries before my
thumb got in the way, the knife'
slid through the fleshy part of
my left thumb and I uttered, and
I quote, "expletive deleted,
expletive deleted. Expletive.
Expletive."
As a torrent of blood gushed
from my thumb, I pressed a
kitchen towel against the
wound. It bled.
I applied a band-aid. Copious
bleeding.
I applied three band-aids. They
slowed the prospect of death by
exsanguination tremendously.
My appetite for strawberries
thoroughly thwarted, I turned to

6 The Gadsden County Times June 26, 2008


Community-wide test calls to residents go out June 30



Gadsden County to launch new emergency notification system


Special to the Times

All Gadsden County resi-
dents will soon be able to
receive immediate emer-
gency alerts via telephone,
email, and text message by
the end of the month.
Gadsden County
Commissioners, in an effort
to improve its emergencypre-
paredness and communica-
tion during times of crisis,
selected the Connect-CTY
mass notification service
from Blackboard Connect,
Inc., which will allowgovern-
ment officials -- in a matter
of minutes -- to quickly dis-
seminate timesensitive mes-
sages to every number stored
in its notification database.
With one phone call, the
Connect-CTY service will

allow officials to record,
send,and track personalized
voice messages to thousands
of residents, businesses, and
local agencies in minutes.
The county will also be able
to send text messages to cell
phones, PDA's, e-mail
accounts, and TTY/TDD
receivingdevices for the
hearing impaired.
The system, which also
allows authorized users to
use a mapping system totar-
get specific geographic loca-
tions and select neighbor-
hoods, can be used to alert
residents about missing per-
sons, storm warnings, fire
advisories, hazardousmateri-
al spills, detours, road clo-
sures, or water conservation
notices.
"This will aid us greatly in

getting the word out to our
residents, especially those in
the outlying areas of the
county when there is an
emergency situation,"
saidEdward J. Dixon, chair-
man of the Gadsden County
Board of County
Commissioners. "Just recent-
ly, with the tornadoes in
Gretna, we had difficulty
communicating with staff
and residents. A certain seg-
ment of the community had
to be evacuated and we had
to go door-to-door to make
sure residents would be out
of harm's way. This will
eliminate the need for us to
do that. But this will also be a
wonderful tool for us to use
to deliver information as it
relates to services provided
by the county, whether it be


health-related or services to
be offeredsuch as the new
bus service."
Gadsden County officials
will conduct a community-
wide test call on
Monday,June 30 to ensure
residents are aware of the
program.
Gadsden County has about
17,000 residential and busi-
ness numbers that have been
automatically included in the
system.
.However, residents can
opt-in to provide additional
contact information' -- up to
three phone numbers and two
e-mail addresses -- by visit-
ing the Gadsden County Web
site at www.gadsdencoun-
tyfl.gov and clicking on Phe
"Sign Up Now Services by
Connect-CTY" link. Those


without Internet access can
have their information added
to the system by calling the
Gadsden County Board of
County Commissioners at
(850) 875-7311 or (850) 627-
6698.
Residents with call block-
ing services can receive the
calls by adding (850) 875-
8650 to their approved num-
ber list.
"With the Connect-CTY
service, we will be able to
reach out to residents
promptlyregarding any time-
sensitive issue," said Marlon
Brown, Gadsden County.


Manager. "We strongly urge
everyone to register their
contact information into the
database to ensure they are
ready to receive vital notifi-
cations at any time through-
out their day."
Gadsden County is one of
the first counties in the Big
Bend region to use the emer-
gency service.
"The best way to keep res-
idents informed and, there-
fore, safe is throughcommu-
nication, and the Connect-
CTY service makes.it easy,"
said Brendan Cotter, presi-
dent of Connect-CTY.

From BOMBS on Page 4


It was a rare license to
commit some semi-sanctioned
mayhem. Just last year we ran a
string of firecrackers under the
parade mules as they turned off
Walnut on to Main Street.
Those mules went by Chief
Aaron Pinson's lead police car
like he had it in reverse! We
pushed the envelope each year.
But I figured, as Bobby pulled
himself up on the ledge that
rimmed the water tank, we had
reached (no pun intended) new
heights if we could pull this one
off.
The plan was simple. And it
sounded really good when we
were hatching it out up on
Woodrow Kennon's front porch.
It didn't look quite the same as I
dangled a hundred feet above
the ground! Bobby had figured
on the short fuses that cherry
bombs were famous for. It
wouldn't do no good to
have'em go off six feet away
from the tower. He'd unwound


an old baseball and we were
using the strings to "lengthen"
the fuses. We wanted them
exploding out over the town.
Mary E. lit the first one and
Bobby gave it a throw. It was
too light! The wind and gravity
took it straight down. We tried
another one with the same
results. We pondered hard for a
full half minute. "Mary E.," I
turned to face her, "You've got
to go back doWl and get some
rocks."
"Why me?"
I didn't feel led to give her
my whole Fourth of July
gastronomical history or that I
wasn't fond of heights or that
it's always worse going down.
"You are quicker than we are.
We've got to hurry or the
moment will be lost! And I will
give you my magnet and let you
use my PMM Playmaker model
glove for a week if you go."
She was back in fifteen
minutes with a Mother's Best


flour sack full of assorted
stones. We used the baseball
windings to secure the bombs to
the rocks. The water tower was
behind The McKenzie Banner
and quite a distance from the
square. Bobby and I were
throwing as hard and as often as
Mary E. could light them. And
we had quite a show going!
Cherry bombs were bursting all
over the place. Some were good
and lit up the evening sky.
Some were not so good and
landed on top of Bailey Moore
Wrinkle's Hardware and that
field between Dr. Smith's and
Bill Argo's Gulf Station.
It was a little fire at first. But
the wind was blowing. I was
concentrating so hard trying to
get a bomb all the way to the
World War I cannon that I
didn't see the flames until the
folks in the park started
pointing. And then I saw the
smoke from the hardware roof!
I shoved Mary E. out of the way


and dove for the ladder. She
crawled over me so fast about
half way down that I didn't.
have time to ask her how she
procured an empty Mother's
Best Flour sack at that time of
the evening!
We were "found out" before
we hit the ground. As soon as
they got the fires out Daddy
came looking for me. He started
whipping me in front of the
City Caf6 and finally quit where
the black top turned into the
gravel road leading to the
house!
Leon took one look at my
back side that night with the red
and blue stripes standing out
against the white underwear and
allowed that I was undoubtedly
the most patriotic 12 year old in
seven states!

From CUTS on Page 1 ,

In response, James told him 95 percent of
the district's administrators are currently
certified and that all principals are certified.
District staff is working to bring the
remaining 5 percent of administrators to a
certification level.
Hinson then made a notion to get rid of all
teachers on special assignment for
administration.
Simmons asked James what the impact of
that action would be on district schools.
"We use several teachers on assignment for
disciplinary reasons," James said. "From a
fiscal standpoint, it's more economical to
have a teacher on assignment work as an
assistant principal handling discipline than to
pay the higher salary for an administrator to
do it. We benefit from those persons helping
us out."
"So the newspaper can get it straight, all I
said was get rid of teaching out of area. What
I'm saying, so you can spin it the right way, is
I'm not saying get rid of administrators. I'm
saying get rid of teachers teaching out of area
... we've got to make sure we've got bona
fide teachers in place."
"Mr. Hinson, what you may want to do, if
you don't know all the facts, you probably
need to consult with me before you come
here. You don't know what you're talking
about. You really should not make comments


when you don't have the facts in a public
meeting."
Hinson then became visibly agitated and
raised his voice.
"As superintendent, you arecsupposed to do
what we the board want you to do," he said.
"He's out of order," James said to Vice
Chairman Judge Helms. "You are out of order
Mr. Hinson."
Hinson continued to argue his point, with
James interjecting throughout, "Out of order.
You are out of order."
Helms, who chaired Tuesday night's regular
meeting in Milton's absence, asked Hinson
several times to calm down, banging his gavel
at least once.
The board voted 3-1 with Helms dissenting
to approve the abolishment of *teachers
teaching on special assignment.
After the meeting, James said he understood
the board's position on the issue and that he
had always made an effort to recruit certified
teachers.
"I think it's important to note that 75 percent
of the teachers in our district are currently
certified to teach in the subject they are
teaching," he said. "However, we have made
significant progress with the teacher base
we've had. Right now, there are five or six
teachers in the district working on
assignment. I think having highly qualified


teachers is important. However, I think a
passion to teach children, regardless of your
area of certification, is just as important."
In other news, Helms said that since the last
board meeting, during which board members
voted to shorten the number of days school
system employees worked, he learned that
Florida statute requires teachers to work 196
days per school year.
He made a motion to rescind the action to
shorten the number of days worked, and the
action was approved unanimously.
"I still don't like the situation. I feel like if
the state's not going to give us the funding we
need, they should give us some flexibility to
work things out," he said.
In other news, a woman from the audience
asked board member Charles Frost whether
there had been any progress on deciding what
to do with Carter-Parramore Academy -
whether to close it or make set-in-stone
guidelines as to which students are eligible to
attend.
"I think they're in the process now of going
through and finding out who don't supposed
to be there," Frost said.
Also during Tuesday's meeting, James
announced the annual Principal of the Year
Celebration will be June 26 at 11:30 a.m. at
the Gadsden Arts Center in downtown
Quincy.

Seminole Ramlins

The Big Rental Co.
Tournament- out -of the. boat
basin in Bainbridge had a big
turn-out 68 boats and 3 huge
catches of fish. A 20 lbs., anoth-
er 20 lbs., but the winning catch
was a whopping big 251bs. and
the Big Fish was in the last catch
- 8.6 lbs. If my info was right,
all those fish was from upriver.
We have the results from the Big
Bend Club at White City, which
according to Eddie Ditto, a poor
showing of Bass was weighed in
and that shows me that the
extreme low water on the
Appalacheecola River has dam-
aged that fine fishery. I ain't
smart, in fact, I failed recess 2
years in a row, but last year
many catches of Bass in the 6
lbs. class was taken. I remem-
ber when 67 Bass over 3 lbs.
was taken in that area in a 1/2
day, all were released to be
caught again. All those on
Crank Baits.
We, at this riten have not
heard from the big tournament
out of Sneads Landing. There
should have been 30 boats in
that set too.
Bass has been hot as a 2 dol-
lar pistal on Saterday nite.
Small Prop baits has been very


good, in the past 3 days, Mike
Prindle and Paul Tyre has boat-
ed limits to 8 lbs. each day.
I would like to thank Eddie
IDit6 fori-fiken ole Red for me.
It's in the water and my
Grandson, Jackson and me
fished 2 hours Saterday morn-
ing. Didn't catch much but the
going was great.
Mike Prindle took another 8
lbs. Bass Sunday morning using
Trick Worms.
The Bream and Shellcracker
have been coming in most of the
week off beds as the egg sacks
are still heavy with eggs. At
least 25 boats limited out on
those 2 fish. ,
The Perch is a lost cause

ley right itself this week. No

Dear Savvy Senior,

Do you have any suggestions on the best way to divide up your
parent's personal possessions after there're gone? My parents, both
in their 70s, are still living but my two sisters and I got in a heated
argument last month when Mom asked if any of us wanted her old
sewing machine. It's not worth much but it got me thinking that if
we're fussing over this one item, how will we handle a house full of
stuff when they eventually pass away.

Splitting Heirs

Dear Splitting,

Divvying up a family's personal belongings usually the small,
simple items of little monetary value has long had the potential to
ignite many family feuds, even for those families who enter the
process with the best of intentions. That's because the value we
attach to the small personal possessions is usually sentimental or
emotional, and because the simple items are the things that most
families fail to talk about. Here are some tips that may help.
Divvying Solutions
The best solution for passing along family possessions is for your
parents to take a stroll through their house with their adult heirs -
either separately or all at once, depending on how well they get
along and how far apart they live. Open up cabinets, drawers and
closets, and go through boxes in the attic to find out which items
they would like to inherit and why (they may have some emotional
attachment to something you're not aware of). If more than one
child wants the same thing, your parents can have the ultimate say.
Then they need to sit down pnd make a list of who gets what on
paper, signed, dated and referenced in their will. They may also
want to consider writing an additional letter or creating a video that
further explains their intentions.
If this isn't done and for most families it isn't here are some
other tips that may help you avoid or resolve fights over posses-
sions:

*Use stickers: Consider using colored stickers (or labels) to iden-
tify who gets what. Assign a different color to each person involved.
If an item gets more than one sticker, you'll have to negotiate. But
beware that stickers can fall off, or can be moved by unscrupulous
heirs.
*Take turns choosing: Use a round-robin process where family
members take turns picking out items they would like to have. If
"who goes first" becomes an issue, you can always flip a coin or
draw straws. Also, to help simplify things, break down the dividing
process room by room, versus tackling the entire house.
*Have a family auction: Give each person involved the same
amount of "play money," or use "virtual points" to bid on the items
you want.
*Have items appraised: Battles can erupt over whether things are
being divided fairly by monetary value. Having an appraiser assess
the value of items like jewelry, antiques and art can help assure a fair
distribution.

How to choose the best watermelon


The Savvy





Senior


By Theresa Friday

One of the best ways to cele-
brate summer is to .enjoy sweet,
ripe watermelons. But knowing
when to harvest or buying the
best one is not always an easy
chore. Of all the hard-to-choose
fruits, watermelon is one of the
toughest to select. The hard rind
of a watermelon can be up to an
inch thick and doesn't soften as
it ripens. It's green when ripe
and green when unripe. So, how
do you select a juicy, sweet
watermelon?
Your best bet is to grow your
own or buy local and "in sea-
son", through mid-July. Collin
.Adcock, Extension Agent in
Washington County, provides us
some tips on how to know when
to harvest watermelons from
your garden.
Choosing a ripe watermelon
from the field or garden can be'
much easier than choosing a ripe
one in the store. The ability to
recognize a ripe melon comes
from years of experience and
careful observation. In the gar-
den there are several clues to
help determine the ripeness of a
melon that one does not always
have in the store.
Most people rely on four
methods of determining melon
ripeness in the field.
First, look at the tendril or
"pigtail" closest to the melon.
When this tendril turns brown
and dries out, it is a good sign
that the melon is ripe.
Next, look at the bottom of
the melon where it lays on the
ground. When this area, some-
times referred to as the "color
spot", turns from white to a light
yellow, there is a good chance
the watermelon is ripe.
Then look at the rind. When
the rind becomes rough to the
touch and turns from a more
shiny color to a more dull color
and is resistant to penetration by
the thumbnail it is a sign of


melon ripeness.
The last method is the thump
test. This is done by thumping
the top of the melon. If the
watermelon has a dull thud
wrfen thumped, it is very possi-
ble the melon is ripe. Unripe
melons will usually have a
tighter, ringing or hollow sound.
Be careful when using this test
because it is not always reliable.
Watermelons do not always give
off a dull thud when ripe. For
some watermelons a dull thud
may indicate an over-ripe
melon.
Only a melon's taste can pro-
vide definitive proof as to its
ripeness. A foolproof approach
is to cut open several melons
that appear to be ripe (based on
the above methods), and then
taste all of the melons and
decide which one has the best
taste. After locating the best tast-
ing watermelon note the condi-
tion of the closest tendril, the
color spot, how the thump
sounds, and the shine of the rind
along with melon size. Harvest
all those that have similar char-
acteristics.
When buying a watermelon,
you should look for "a firm,
symmetrical watermelon that is
free of bruises, cuts or dents"
according to the National
Watermelon Promotion Board.
When you see a nice-looking
watermelon, pick it up and feel
its heft; then pick up a few oth-
ers of similar size to compare.
At 92 percent water, a good
melon should feel heavy for its
size.
How do you know a water-
melon ripened on the vine?
Easy, turn the melon over and
check for a creamy yellow spot.
That's a sign that the watermel-
on sat on the ground and in the
sun to ripen. The yellow spot is
the only place the sun didn't hit.

Waiting or araf


Quincy man tells his father's railroad


By LESLIE ROBERTS
Times General Manager

Henry Rollins Jr. has a
storyteller's voice.
It serves him well on the CD
he produced in honor of his
father.
"I'd been thinking about
doing this for about three
years," said Rollins, 68. "Then
one night I was singing
'Waiting' for a Train' with
(county judge) Stew Parsons.
The same night, Richard
(Hardwick) said he would play
saxophone if I made a CD. I
said, 'Richard, I want that
blues sound, that Jimmie
Rodgers blues sound.' He said,
'Just let me know.'"
Several years after that,
Hardwick, a U.S. postal carrier
who works in Gadsden
County, was delivering mail
and bumped into Rollins.
Rollins told him he was
ready to start recording a CD
comprised solely of train
songs in honor of his father,
Henry Rollins, who worked as
a telegraph agent/operator for
Seaboard Airline Railroad.
Born in Enterprise, Ala., in
1907, the senior Rollins began
his career in Baldwin, Fla., in
1939.
. His job was to hold up a
stick with a telegraph affixed
to it for engineers to grab as
they rolled through the train
station. ..
The family moved to Quincy
from Lloyd'in 1945.
Rollins Jr. wanted to produce
the CD in time to celebrate the
100th anniversary of his
father's Dec. 21, 1907 birth.
After a few initial setbacks,


stories through song

things just fell into place.
While visiting the Hank
Williams Jr. museum in
Montgomery, Ala., he heard
Arnold and Pat Shepard
perform a gospel concert with
their grandchildren, Morgan
Brown, then 15, and Montana
Brown, then 10.
Morgan played the guitar;
Montana, the mandolin.
He asked the family whether
it would consider playing for
his CD.


They agreed, and the result is
a heartfelt rendition of tunes
like "Waiting for a Train," the
CD's title, and "Wabash
Cannon Ball."
Joan Alterman lent her
harmonica to the challenging
"Orange Blossom Special,"
with Rollins Jr. and Pat
Sheppard on vocals.
The CD, recorded in a studio
in Sneads, was finished two
weeks before the 100th
anniversary of the birth of


Rollins Jr.'s father.
It's available for
purchase at the
Gadsden CountN
Arts Center.
Rollins, mean Mhdc.

producing a second .
CD, one with a gospel K 'ki -

He's pleased with the way
"Waiting for a Train" turned
out.

All creatures, great and small


By LESLIE ROBERTS
Times General Manager

The weather cooperated, even if
the animals didn't always.
The Gadsden County Humane
-Society hosted its first "Blessing
of- the Pets" Saturday at First
Presbyterian Church in Havana,
with the Rev. Bill Bess
officiating.
The event was organized as a
combination
fundraiser/educational outreach
program.
Around 15 pets made an
appearance underneath the shade
of a large oak tree adjacent to the
church.
Several were small breeds -
"The chihuahua nation was here
earlier," Bess told a late arrival,


tongue firmly in cheek.
The local Huinane Society has
no animal shelter and no paid
staff.
Volunteers rely on foster homes,
often taking in homeless pets
themselves.The group currently
has around 20 dogs and roughly
47 cats available for adoption.
Members transport their wards
to Petsmart in Tallahassee twice
monthly in hopes of finding
prospective owners.
The Gadsden County Humane
Society is now looking for foster
homes for its dogs and cats. For
more information, contact the
organization's foster home
coordinator at
gadsdenhumane@bellsouth.net or
at 539-0505.
To view pets currently available


for adoption, visit the Humane
Society's website at
www.gadsdenhumane.org.

Fireworks display
cancelled

due to new rules and regula-
tions, these licenses will not be
approved in time for July 4th,

will still gather for their annual
covered dish picnic 'but when
the skies grow dark the skies
will not light up, with one of the
area's most spectacular fire-
works display.

who is the son of Mr. King and
Viola Baker.
The couple is pictured at left.
The ceremony will take place at

The public is cordially invited
to visit the Gadsden Arts Center,
on the square in historic
downtown Quincy, to view the
drawings of nine-year-old Chasen
Roulhac, a student at
Blountstown Elementary School.
His works will be on display in
the Children's Bates Gallery,
upstairs at the center. Chasen is
the son of Meagan Roulhac of
Blountstown and the grandson of
Kathy and Sammy Johnson of
Chattahoochee.
Chasen's collection is entitled "I
Feel Like Drawing" and includes
recent pieces from this budding
artist, as well as those from three
and four years ago when he was
just beginning. "I Feel Like
Drawing" encourages anyone to
put his/her feelings on paper,


cardboard or whatever medium
preferred. Drawing contributes to
improved hand-eye coordination
and a more solid command of pen
and pencil.
With Chasen's artwork, the
desire to draw is spontaneous and
not forced hence the title, "I
Feel Like- Drawing." Chasen's
drawings will be on display from
June 28th to July 18th.
The Gadsden Arts .Center, 13
North Madison Street in Quincy,
is open Tuesday through Saturday
from 10 AM to 5 PM, EDT, and
Sunday frpm 1 to 5 PM. Parking
is available on the square and

and a elevator, for handicapped
accessibility. For more

deal with the down-


pointing toward turn in the econo-
pointingued toward my," said Norman
continued tough s, many Wr i g h t ,
times, many
dePrPeidnt/CEO of


Americans are sud-
denly finding them-
selves out of work.
According to the
Bureau of Labor
Statistics, in April
2008, private-sector
employment experi-
enced declines for
the fifth month in a
row, with 29,000
jobs lost. The
nation's unemploy-
ment rate is now at
five percent which
means there are cur-
rently 7.6 million
Americans looking
for work.
"Every day, we hear
about another major
corporation cutting
back and laying off


the BBB serving
Northwest Florida.
"And with credit
markets tightening,
not only are many
Americans already
struggling to avoid
foreclosure on their
homes, but now they
have to deal with
staying afloat with-
out their previous
income."
Given that most job
search processes
take three to six
months, getting
back on your feet
again isn't only
about the job hunt; it
also requires a good
grasp on handling
benefits and manag-


ing a budget."
Losing a job can be
emotional, making it
hard to think clearly;
however, employees
need to understand
the terms of the situ-
ation including any
benefits they are eli-
gible to receive.
Many companies
provide a severance
package and, by law,
employees are enti-
tled to any accrued
vacation.
Laid-off employees
should consider ask-
ing their former
employer for refer-
ences to help with
their job search.
It's important to
immediately apply
for unemployment
benefits through the
state unemployment
office since it may
take up to three
weeks to start
receiving checks.
