Nelson


pushes for


hospital


funding

By ANGYE MORRISON
Times Managing Editor
A spokesman for'Senrl. Bill Nelson, D-
Florida, said last week' that an
appropriations bill to procure $1 million for
renovations for the Gadsden Cohimunity
Hospital has been drafted and is on its way
down the long path to the Oval Office.
Bryan Gulley said this is the first step in a
long process.
"It will now have to go before the Senate,
then the House, then the Senate again and
then to the president," he said. "It's also not
clear how many appropriations Congress
will pass this' year. If it doesn't pass this
year, Sen. Nelson will press for funding for
(the hospital) next year."'.
Gulley expects the bill to hit the floor
again toward the end of the summer' or
early fall.
"This is very important for Gadsden
County," he said. "The residents deserve
this. It's a matter of life and death."
The hospital, located on U.S. Highway 90
in Quincy, was shut down by the Florida
Agency for Health Care Administration in
November 2005 after agency officials
called it a "threat to the public health." The
closing followed a report from the AHCA,
citing uncbllected garbage stacked around
the building, which was reportedly 15 feet
high in some places; a backlog of patient

County, residents cross swords

Purple Hatter's Ball draws criticism from neighbors


By ANGYE MORRISON
Times Managing Editor
One of the organizers of the Purple Hatter's Ball, an
event held at the Ponderosa Wildlife Preserve. in
southern Gadsden County, told Gadsden. County
commissioners Tuesday night that the event was a.
success and that it went off without a hitch,
Residents who live near the event site, however, told
a different story.
Event organizer Paul Levine told commissioners that
he realized there was some concern early on regarding
noise and traffic, but said, "we had a very peaceful
event with no incidents." The ball is held in memory of


Rachel Momingstar Hoffman, a former police
informant, who was reported missing in May. Her body
was later found in rural Taylor County. Her mother,
Margie Weiss, attended the ball, and said it was an.
important. step toward healing for her and for others
who kne'k Hoffman .
Charles Houston and Troy Mullis, who both live near
the preserve, said the traffic and noise caused by the
event were a nuisance, and Houston called the event a'
"farce from the beginning."
"(Event organizers) applied (for a permit) for a five-
hour event, and people were woke up at 3:30 in the
morning," Houston said, adding that the event was

approval to raise property taxes and

Big and beautiful shoes that's
what the next Florida House
representatives 'for Gadsden
County will have to fill,
according to numerous local and
state dignitaries gathered for the
annual. Gadsden County
Legislative Delegation
Appreciation Breakfast on July
10.
Rep. Curtis Richardson, who
represents District 8, was in
attendance at the breakfast in his
honor, held at Tri-Eagle Sales in
Midway.
District 9 Rep. Loranne Ausley'
was also honored, but was unable
to attend the event due to a
previous commitment.
Following a special video.
presentation, Gadsden County
Manager Marlon Brown took the
podium and said that both
Richardson and Ausley have


"always been supportive of local
government," and Richardson has
made education a priority while
Ausley has championed the
welfare of children.
"Without Rep. Richardson,
we'd be in a much worse
condition in Gjdsden Count\."
Brown said. "And Rep. Ausley is
known for her heart for children.
You have (both) done great things
for Gadsden County."
Lobbyist Chris Doolin echoed
Brown's commentary, adding that
Richardson is the most eloquent
speaker in the Florida House.
"His shoes are so big, they
cannot be filled," Doolin said.
"And Rep. Ausley has the style of
grace and tenacity that makes her
so effective. -She has been
especially effective- behind the
scenes."
Doolin joked that Ausley
"always. wears such beautiful
shoes," but added, on a more
serious note, "she will be


missed."
Doolin told the audience that
Gadsden County is special, and
that no one should be concerned
that the county won't enjoy the
same kind of support from the
state 'capitol after Richardson's
and Ausley's terms have ended.
"You are in the shadow of the
capitol and you will have support,
if you .ask," he said.
During their tenure in office,
Richardson and Ausley have
targeted several priority areas on
behalf of the county, including
public safety, youth issues,
emergency services,,
transportation, water supply and
development, as well as housing.
Both representatives have worked
to locate funding for these and
other projects and advancements.
As Richardson took the podium,
he thanked his family, staff and
supporters, saying that he
couldn't have done his job
without them.


He also thanked the people of
Gadsden County.
"Gadsden Counrty has adopted
me as a native son. I feel as much
at home here as in Leon County,"
he said.
As for future plans, Richardson
said he hasn't made a final
decision what his next step will
be.
"I'm on the short list for the
Florida Parole Commission," he
said, and I may run for office
again."
*Toward the end of the program,
state Sen. Al Lawson presented a
check for $135,610.84 to the
county, to be used for parks and
recreation. Gadsden County
Commission Chairman Edward
Dixon accepted it, along with
fellow commissioner Eugene
Lamb Jr., Doug Croley and
Brenda Holt.
The check is the fifth one the
county has received for parks and
recreation since 2005.

"You (commissioners) have
ignored the will of the people
(that live in the area near the
preserve), about 350 strong,"
Houston said, adding that he was
particularly disappointed with
decisions he said were made by
Marlon Brown,. Gadsden County
manager. Houston said the
original permit was, per county
statute, for the event to be no
more than five hours long and
that no more than 500 people
could attend. He alleged that

Brown allowed the event to
continue past 8 p.m., when it was
scheduled to end.
In an e-mail to county
commissioners and other county
personnel dated July 11 and
obtained by the Gadsden County
Times, Brown wrote that he
provided approval on that day for
Levine to go ahead with the ball.
Brown called the decision to
move forward with the event
"difficult given the phone calls
and letters received." He also
wrote that since the ordinance
"only provides the county


manager with criteria under
which an exemption is authorized
and does not provide the county
manager with subjective
discretion to deny, I approved the
event."
,Furthermore, Brown wrote that
he had "communicated and
collaborated with the sheriff's
office which will ensure that 8
p.m. end time is observed."
"I will also have staff-from our
code enforcement division
present," Brown wrote. "I
stressed to Mr. Levine the need to
observe the exemption


requirements and his signed
affidavit, and it is my hope that
this event truly ends up being a
positive celebration that may
ultimately mend the strained
relationships between the area
residents and the event
promoters/property owner."
Brown did not clarify what the
exemption requirements were in
his e-mail, nor did he include any
other information on Levine's
affidavit.
"Mr. Brown, you let us down. If
I was your boss tonight, I'd fire
you," Houston said Tuesday


night.
Mullis said the event was never
intended to be only five hours
long, and that it was advertised as
a 24-hour event. The event Web
site, www.purplehattersball.com,
includes a poster for the event
that includes the names, of the
bands that were scheduled to
perform and states that only 400
tickets would be sold. There was
also verbiage on the site that said
the ball would run from noon on
July 12 to noon on July 13.
By allowing the event to go past
the five hours, Mullis said the

The challenge, McLean said, is
to cut spending and raise
revenues.
"That is the only way to right
this ship," he said.
From October 2007 to June
2008, the city's average monthly
income was $2,439,542 or

same period of time, the average
monthly expenses were
$2,390,999 per month or
$28,691.986 annually. This would
have left the city with a monthly

got her feet on the ground, Black Jack
Pefshing's Expeditionary Force headed off
to France. President Wilson lobbied
congress and then the American people to
give the League of Nations a try. A shy
young soldier from the back woods of
Tennessee, Alvin C. York, became the most
decorated soldier from that "War to end all
Wars". And the returning boys were indeed
hard to keep "down on the farm" after they
had seen "gay Pa-ree".
A young cowboy comedian was doing
less rope twirling during his appearances at
the Ziegfield Follies and more "running"
commentary on the condition on the world
as he saw it. Miss Ina has grown weary of
me quizzing her about Will Rogers.
She was 6 ? when Warren G. Harding was
sworn in as president. I don't think she was
the cause for some less than stellar
government froml600 Pennsylvania
Avenue during that period. I'm also fairly
certain that she didn't roar in the twenties.
Although there are a few years in her late
teens that she refuses to talk about!
She was going on thirteen when
Lindbergh flew the ocean. Every headline
screamed of the achievement! I'm sure
Miss Ina cheered along with the rest of the
country. Babe Ruth also hit a record setting
60 home runs, that summer. But Miss Ina
didn't keep up with the New York
Yankees......
The Stock Market crash in October of
1929 affected her very little. Her family


didn't have much.....so they couldn't loose
much. She talks of friends and family. And
of hard times. Mother tells the same story,
as did Aunt Beatrice and Uncle Clifford
and thousands of others that lied through
the Great Depression......
I saw her ration book one time. And I do
so enjoy her "ride across America" story as
the wife of an army corporal. She lived in
California for part of World War II. A "nice
family looked after her" and I wish I could
remember the name of her dog. A world
war was raging on all fronts but her stories
are of waiting, hoping and coping with the
everyday things..... It's better than any.
history book I have ever read!
She heard of the bombing of Pearl Harbor
over the radio just,after lunch on December
7. She read first hand of the fighting in
North Africa, the struggle up the Italian
boot, the Invasion of Normandy and the
allied forces persistence, relentless march
toward Berlin. Her prayers were answered
with VE day in May of 1945. I don't know
if she danced in the streets or not....but
what a memorable time to be an American!
She told her husband that she would
never marry a pastor. Now, that is a great
story because Brother J. C. Odum served
our church faithfully for twenty-seven
years..... but it was 0. K., we can all
breathe a sigh of relief, he WASN'T a
preacher when they got married! Miss Ina
has pointed that out to me rather succinctly
on more than one occasion
She "liked Ike", she wasn't deterred by
the "Cold War" of the '50's, raising three
teenagers in the '60's, the double knits of
the '70's, retirement in the '80's or slowing
a little in the 90's. She is more fun to be
around than a barrel of monkeys. She's got
warmth, charm, a quick wit and a mind that
has not been diminished by the passing of
time. I enjoy her company. She always has
time for me. And if she tires of my
incessant questions, she is way too polite to
rebuke me.
Miss Ina doesn't worry now. And she
doesn't get flustered. She has so much
peace. I reckon when you lived through the
things she has seen, nothing is too earth
shattering. God will take care of it.....and
her. She never fails to mention that when I
drop by for some quality moments.
And listen, she hasn't rolled over to time,
age, space. or contentment. She can narrow
those eyes and passionately launch into. a
homily on some thing or person or
situation that is not to her liking. A few pet
peeves and grievances are allowable wkhen
you are nearing the center of' your ninth
decade! We might even talk about you! But
that is between me and Miss Ina.....
I learn something from her near 'bout
.everyday. She is such a joy. I am lucky to
have her. And I'm figuring on her saying a
few words, over me when I pass on.....

Respectfully,

Kes

Humidity the glue that holds

the South together


It's here once. again that time of
year in the South during which we all
talk and move a little slower. Why?
Because of the humidity.
I don't know why it seems hotter
now than it once did. The humidity
seems worse, too. When I was a kid,
my brothers and I would leave the
house early in the morning and take
off to play or swim. We'd be outside
pretty much until Mama made us
come inside for a meal, a bath or to
cool off. We would argue about the
coming-in-to-cool-off part. We just
didn't think it was necessary, and I
don't remember the' heat ever
bothering me so much that I
voluntarily took an air conditioner
break.
I suppose some would blame global
warming. I'm sure that it has affected
summer temperatures. The experts
say, in fact, that global warming is to
blame for the blistering heat. I think
we're all at least partly responsible
for it. Heck, Southern women are
probably responsible for about half
of the warming. Show me a Southern
woman without a giant can of
hairspray in her bathroom and I'll
take it back.
Perhaps the heat bothers me more
because I'm getting (dare I say it)
older? I'm not sure. I don't think age
really has much to do with it. You.
can be 8 years old or 80 and still melt
into a puddle if you stay outside
more than 5 minutes.
There are those in the South who say,
"It's not the heat, it's the humidity." I
concur. I can handle the heat most of
the tinie. It's just when I feel like my
skin is melting slap off of my b6nes
that I get more than a little
uncomfortable. And with the weather:
we're having lately, it doesn't seem
to take much time outside to feel that
way.
I have to say that in recent years, I've.
developed a deep and abiding respect
for the man who invented the
modern air conditioner. Called the
"Father of Cool," Willis Haviland
Carrier is credited with inventing the
technology in the early 1900s that
led to the modern air conditioning
unit. He was granted a patent for his
"apparatus for treating air" in 1906.


God bless him.
But his early machines were used for
cooling large spaces like department
stores, 'movie theaters and industrial
plants. As people discovered this
new-fangled thing, Ihe demand
shifted toward smaller home units.
The Carrier Company happily
obliged and- the rest, as they say, is
blissfully chilled history.
Too bad he and his team couldn't
figure out a portable unit that could
somehow be attached to a person to
keep him or her cool, even outdoors.
So in the meantime, we just have to
deal with it. And only a Southerner
could deal with all of this. Which
reminds me of a list of things about
Southerners I came across the other
day. Enjoy in a cool room with a
glass of sweet iced tea.
* Only a Southerner knows how
many fish, collard greens, turnip
greens, peas, beans, etc., make up a
"mess."'
* Only a Southerner can show or
point out to you the general direction
of "yonder."
* Only a Southerner knows exactly
how.. long. "directly" ..is ,-. as, in,,
"Going to town; be back directly."
* Even Southern babies know that
"Gimme some sugar" is not a request
for the' white, .granular sweet
substance that sits in a pretty little
bowl in the middle of the table.
* Only Southerners grow up knowing
the difference between "right near":
and "a- right far piece." They also
know that "just down the road" can
be 1 mile or 20.
* A Southerner -knows that "fixin'"'
can be used as a noun, verb or
adverb.
* Only Southerners make friends
while standing in lines. We don't do
queues, we do lines and when we're
in line, we talk to everybody.
* Only a Southerner can be put into a
room with 99 other Southerners and
find that at least half of them are
related, even if only by marriage.
I'm sure that room would be full of
hot air. We are talking a room full of
Southerners, here. Hopefully the
thermostat has been properly set for
maximum comfort.

-Angela from Naples


by Leslie Roberts,. ,
Times General Manager

I had occasion to talk with
Gadsden County Humane
Society President Angie Beam
the other day via e-mail, but
talk we-did and she mentioned
a new, statewide initiative to
stop or at least slow the practice
of animal fighting.
Gadsden County is no stranger
to this barbaric. practice in
fact, in the book, "Florida Place
Names: Alachua to Zolfo
Springs" by Allen Morris, the
late state Sen. Pat Thomas said
the community here known as
Dogtown "gained its name
many years ago as a place where
dogs were pitted to fight."
John Goodwin, manager of ani-
mal fighting issues for the
Humane Society of the U.S.,
said he sees the recent unveiling
by state Attorney General Bill,
McCollum and the H.S.U.S. of a
program which will reward peo-
ple who give law enforcement
officers and animal services
organizations successful tips up
to $5,000 as welcome news.
"Florida does seem to have an
unusually high rate of dog fight--
ing," said Goodwin, who is
based in Washington, D.C.
"Last year at about this time
there were a dozen or so under-
ground dog fighting publica-
tions coming out of Florida-
one was 'Pit Bull Tribune.'
Another one was called
'Performance APBT.' They're
out of business now it is ille-
gal to us the U.S. Postal Service
to further dog fighting."
Pit bulls are not the only breed
used for the practice, but they're
the most common.
"The pit bull tends to be the
breed that is exploited the
most," Goodwin said.
Goodwin also said Gadsden
County lies in an animal-fight-
ing corridor of sorts that extends
through Alabama and Georgia.
After significant pressure from
law enforcement and animal aid
agencies in 2004 and 2006,
fewer cases are surfacing.
But the activity still occurs.
"People that are high-end drug
dealers are often involved in the
dog-fighting industry. One
study done in Illinois found that
of 350 people arrested over a
three-year period, 59 percent
were gang members," Goodwin
said.
McCollum made a similar com-
ment at a May press conference
about the incentive program.
"Animal fighting is a violent
crime that at times is associated
with illegal gangs, drugs,
firearms and ganibling, and I am
pleased to announce this reward
program as an important com-
bative tool," he said in a press
release.
Animal fighting, defined as
fighting between roosters or
other birds or between dogs,
bears or other animals, is a
third-degree felony in Florida,
punishable by up to five years in
prison and up to $5,000 in fines
per count. The new reward pro-
gram, which offers up to $5,000
for tips leading to the arrest and
conviction of a person involved
in animal fighting, is funded by
H.S.U.S.
To report information about ani-
mal fighting, call Big Bend
Crime Stoppers at (850) 574-
8477. A list of Florida Crime
Stoppers organizations can be
found at www.floridacrimestop-
pers.com..

fighting operations to the

County Schools"


Dear Community Friend, Neighbor, and Supporter of Academic Excellence:

I would you like to thank you for your support and belief in the children of Gadsden:;
County. Last week the Florida Department of Education released school grades, and our 1
school district made a historic landmark. The entire district earned a grade of "C" with
Havana Elementary School earning a "B" and Havana Middle School earning a "C".
More so, 50% of the schools in the district earned an "A" or "B" and two-thirds of the dis-
trict's schools increased a letter grade in comparison to last year. This milestone could not
have been reached without YOU. Parents, Community Members, Faith-based Partners,
Teachers, Administrators, and Business Partners, we need your continued support so that
we can ensure that our students will be successful 21st century citizens. This Year's suc-
cess is in honor of you and what you do to make our district soar!

Together, we can continue to improve the quality of education in Gadsden County Schools,.
I hold steadfast to the belief that every student is unique and that learning should be dy7-'
namic, flexible and engaging. Let's continue to make this belief a reality. I need *your
vote and support AGAIN on AUGUST 26TH, 2008.

Sincerely,

Lindsey announces




candidacy for School



Board district 1 seat


Dear friends,
When I first considered run-
ning for school board member,
District 1, the immediate sup-
port I received from my family,
neighbors and friends really
encouraged me to take action for
our children., It would be an
honor and a privilege to serve
and be our, strong voice as
District l's Gadsden County
School Board member. ,
I was born in Cairo, Ga., and
raised in Havana. I am the son
of the late Roosevelt and Rosa
Beatrice Andrews-Lindsey, and
the grandson of, the late Rev..
Owen and Della Andrews, and
the late Cleveland Richardson.
Martha Richardson, my grand-
mother, is very active in the
Havana community.
I have been married for 28
years to my lovely wife, Angela
Lindsey, and have three beauti-
ful children, Terron R. Lindsey
(16), Kiera V. Lindsey (14) and
Trenisia R. Ljndsey (9).
I graduated from Havana
Northside High School and then
from Tallahassee Community
College in the criminal
justice/law enforcement area. I
have had 28 years of law
enforcement experience. My
parents and teachers instilled in
me the principles, ethics and
desire to be successful and have
a meaningful life.,
I grew up in Havana as our
great community was growing.
I have seen and treasured our
unique diversity and the won-
derful potential that our children
possess. As a parent, a school
resource officer supervisor, !a
PTA president, a concerned
community member and a youth
advocate, I understand the
immediate needs schools in our
district have., I pledge. to fight
for the educational issues that


will make our school district the
best in the state.
My platform identifies a
number of priorities that will
guide me as I work with other
school board members to serve
the needs of children throughout
our district. These priorities
include:
Working towards a commu-
nity center with a full academic
and recreational program for our
children, and a park that is child
and family oriented; "
' Attending all school adviso-
ry committee meetings in
District 1 and developing a citi-
zen community committee that
will regularly give me and other
community leaders input on
educational and related issues
that matter to you and your fam-
ily.
Working hard to open the
doors to Havana Northside High
School for services -not present-'
ly offered or inadequate

ly provided in our district. It
is my goal if elected to make
this one of my top priorities.
Havana Middle School
must have a population of at
least 270 to have a viable educa-
tional program. We are current-
ly under 200 students. I will
work toward getting additional
students by recommending .cre-
ative solutions, based on com-
munity input, that not only will
boost enrollment but will give
the community more control in
these matters. Havana 'Middle
School presently does not have
an 'art nor band/music' teacher
because of reduced enrollment.
Supporting efforts and solu-
tions for smaller classrooms and
reasonable pay raises for
instructional and non-instruc-
tional personnel.
Continuing to participate in


mentoring and worKing with
youth in the community and
schools to .prevent them from
getting a criminal record.
Supporting efforts andsolu-
tions for smaller classrooms and
reasonable pay raises for.
instructional and no-instruction-
al personnel;
Continuing to participate in
mentoring youth, including Teen
Court of Gadsden County,
Neighborhood Accountability
Board, Civil Citation Program,
GREAT Program and DARE.
Working to implement
Sterling Program criteria to help
the school district to embrace
programs of excellence in
administrative as well as educa-
tional programs.
This platform is based on my
firm belief that our children
come first.
It is time for us to take action
to make Qur schools places of
real excellence.
I have the expertise, experi-
ence and desire to help to deliv-
er the solutions that will make
this happen.
. . Hope that you will join me
, in the fight for outstanding
schools to build a safer, healthi-
er and more prosperous commu-
nity. Vote Terron "Terry"
Lindsey for District 1 school-
board member on Aug. 26.

Remembering Rachel:


Festival keeps former informant's spirit alive


wilprvdeadac


By ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

Rachel Momingstar Hoffman
would have liked the way her
friends and family came together
Saturday to celebrate her life.
About 350 people came to the
Ponderosa Wildlife Preserve in
southern Gadsden County for the
Purple Hatter's Ball.
Visitors also wore purple
armbands and many donned
different paraphernalia from
purple boas to purple T- shirts.
But all were there in honor of the
woman who was described by her
mother, Margie Weiss, as a
"gentle and kind spirit."
Rachel, Weiss said, was living
through her. She wore a red,skirt
and purple sequined blouse that
belonged to Rachel. Later in the
evening she was presented by
Ruthie Black and Monica Smart a


pair of blue jeans, r-
signed by many
who attended the
festival.
Festival
organizer Paul
Levine said Rachel
loved music and
The Purple
Hatter's Ball was
an appropriate way
to celebrate her ..-
life. Rachel was
known for wearing
a fuzzy purple top
hat when she
attended music festi j l
"She worked hard la.it \ear to
help us clean up the property
when we were pl.inning last
year's festival. She jalo intended
the festival we had on Ball Farm
Road," he said.
Festival-goers set Lp campsites
and listened to music tiorm as


mann as 10
bands The\ danced.
cooked out and threw
Frisbees, but mostl. the
remembered Rachel.
"She \as a great cook
She could put things
together w ith a dash of this a
dash of that and it \\as
v.onderful," 'a.d her friend,
Justin Samuells. Others
brought covered, .dish
contributions in Rachel's honor.
Her plans were to attend culinary
school.
Rachel's death was never far
from the conversation throughout
the day. While working as
confidential informant, Rachel
went missing May 7 and her body


was subsequently found in
rural Taylor County the following
day.
A producer from the television
program "20/20" attended the *"
festival and said the segment on
Rachel will air in two weeks.
Showers and a couple of severe
thunderstorms didn't dampen the
spirits of those attending the


E festival. When storms
came up, the music "as
halted until the blew o'er
Weiss said she was aware
of opposition to the
festival, but she wanted people to
know. this was not an attempt to
interrupt their tranquility.
"We're praying for them and
that God blesses them. I'm happy
that they have their children. The
music helps keep my child's spirit
alive," she said.

Class Reuniom


The capstone event of boot
camp is "Battle Stations." This
exercise gives recruits the
skills and confidence they need
to succeed in the fleet. "Battle
Stations" is designed to galva-
nize the basic warrior attributes
of sacrifice, dedication, team-
work and endurance in each
recruit through the practical'
application of basic Navy skills
and the core values of honor,
courage and commitment. Its
distinctly Navy flavor was
designed to take into account
what it means to be a sailor.
Davis is a 2007 graduate of
East Gadsden High School.

School's 'dream team'
"All of Greensboro Elementary
School's faculty and staff are the
dream team. It takes all of us to
be successful. Our administra-
tors, Principal Ella Ponder and
Assistant Principal Stephen Pitts,
are all' about the success and safe-
ty of the faculty, staff and stu-
dents. They don't give us a lot of
examples of other schools and
people to follow. They let us be
creative and do what we have
been trained to do teach."

Caring rescuer transforms, finds home for puppy


At a mere eight months, the
poodle pup was already too old
to be sold to a pet store, and
with no value to his breeder,
the dog's prospects weren't
good. Fortunately, this particu-
lar puppy mill owner called a
rescue group and asked them
to take the dog off his hands.
Linda at Plain and Fancy
Animal Rescue in Lancaster
County, Pa., was only too
happy to comply. She brought
the dog home, bathed him to
wash off the dirt and grime of
neglect, cut the mats from his
coat, took him to the vet for his
vaccinations and had him
neutered. He looked like a new
dog, but he was still incredibly
shy, a common trait of puppy
mill dogs with no socializa-
tion.
Plain and Fancy listed the
dog on Petfinder.com, hoping
someone would read his story
and respond. Someone did.
The poodle's description
caught the eye of D'Arcy
Webb of Philadelphia.
"It was destiny, I guess,"

Webb says. "The ladies of
Plain and Fancy quickly
processed our application, and
within two days, my husband
and I were on our way to meet
the newest member of our
family. The first day we
brought him home, he cowered
every time we reached for
him."
That soon changed.
"Two weeks in, and our plain
and fancy pooch from rural
Pennsylvania was living the


urban high life, walking nicely
on a leash five blocks to the
dog park twice a day to romp
with lots of new pooch pals.
"He comes happily when
