wrecks

claim 2 lives

By ANGYE MORRISON
Times Managing Editor
Two separate and unrelated accidents
took the lives of drivers on Gadsden
County roads this past weekend, including
a Gretna man.
Marlon Anthony Campbell, 21, of
Kingston, Jamaica, was driving his 1993
Ford van west on State Road 8 July 18 at
approximately 6:18 p.m. According to
Florida Highway Patrol reports, Campbell
lost control of the vehicle when the right
rear tire failed, causing the vehicle to leave
the roadway and overturn in the median.
The vehicle .traveled across the median
and came to rest in the inside eastbound
lane.
Campbell was wearing a seatbelt at the
time of the accident. He was pronounced
dead at the scene.
His passenger, whose identity was ;not

Gadsden County School Board
members met Tuesday night and found
that the immediate financial future for the
district is uncertain, at best.
Additional state-dictated cuts are
coming to the district's budget, but it is
uncertain at this point just how much and
when.
But although the financial picture looks
grim, school board officials are optimistic
that the budget can be worked out to
protect academics, a priority the board
said is crucial.
Bonnie Wood, district finance director,
said district staff members are working
on a cost savings list that contains such

QPD solves string of burglaries


By ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
The Quincy Police Department made five arrests
last week in connection with various burglaries and
one armed robbery in Quincy in recent weeks.
Arrested and charged were: Jaron P. (Snell)
McNealy, 19, grand theft and burglary; Alfred E.
Denson Jr. 24, burglary and grand theft; Antonio R.
Richardson, 23, grand theft, burglary and defrauding
a pawn broker; and Jamichael R. Cox, 19, grand
theft, burglary and defrauding a pawn broker.
Jerry Mitchell, 19, was charged with armed
robbery and possession of a firearm by a convicted
felon in an unrelated case.
According to a report on file with the department
two men, one alleged to be Jerry Mitchell Jr.,
knocked on the door of a roon at the Quincy Inn
around 10 p.m. last Wednesday night. The woman
who occupied in the ,room told authorities she
opened the door because she had ordered a pizza.
When the woman opened the door she said two
black men with white shirts over their heads were


Denson Mitchell


standing on the other side and pointed a handgun at
her saying "give me all-of \ out money." The woman
told authorities she ran into the bathroom and called
the police. The would-be robbers ran away.
Both men fled and Mitchell was later, found
shirtless and shoeless .standing:near a creek off 8th
Street. The handgun, a .25-caliber Raven, was a few
feet away from Mitchell's discarded shirt.
Mitchell's said he was walking down the street
when he met a man who suggested that the two of
them go rob someone at the motel. He said they
selected the room with a light on and knocked on the
door. The other man, Mitchell said, had the gun and


pointed at the
woman. He said
he had posses-
sion of the
firearm because
the other man
did not want to
get caught with
Richardson Snell the gun because
he was on of
probation. When police asked Mitchell why he did it,
he ans\'ered. "just dumb."
Charges against the other indil iduals are pending.
In an unrelated robbers last Monday morning,
Ronterrius Clark arrived home around noon and was
greeted \ith a most unwelcome site and he called
the police.
When officers from the Quincy Police Department
arrived at his home, he gave them a laundry Jist of
items taken from his Ninth Street apartment.
The total was almost $10,000 and the thieves took

Times Managing Editor
The family of a 7-year-old Gadsden County -girl
killed in December 2007 stood in court last week and
said they had forgiven the child's killer, who received
what they believed to be a fair sentence.
Bryce Crosby was arrested and charged in
December by Florida Highway Patrol officers with
driving under the influence and leaving the scene of
an accident with death after he ran over Shanesa S.
Cox at the home of her grandmother, Joanne Carpio',
located on Aspalaga Road. Shanesa was playing in
the yard with her 4-year-old sister when Crosby
drove his 2004 Ford truck off the road and onto the
lawn. She was pronounced 'dead at the scene.
Crosby never stopped,. and was arrested about a
mile west of the accident. His blood-alcohol content
measured .22 at the time. He was treated for .minor.
injuries at Tallahassee Memorial Hospital and
released, and was taken to the Leon County Jail. He
was released on bond shortly after.
Crosby entered a plea of no contest in May and
testified that he did not remember the incident.
He was sentenced. last week to 145.5 months in
prison for the DUI, and 10 years of probation for
leaving the scene of an accident with a death. The
probation included the following conditions:
* Crosby is required to write a letter of apology to
the mother of Shanesa Cox.
* He must complete 100 hours of community
service at a local hospital emergency room,


preferably on Friday and Saturday nights,.when the
majority of these kinds of cases are brought in.
* He must complete 2501 hours of community
service (location and method are his choice).

"Our lives changed forever on Dec. 1,
2007. Had (Crosby) stayed (at the
scene of the accident), who knows
what would have happened? He has
to live every day, knowing he killed a
7-year-old child...Iforgigve you andl
hope you will forgive yourself."
--Keny.rta Jackson

He must abstain from all drugs and alcohol.
His driver's license is. revoked for life, and he
must attend a DUI school.
He must pay $5,000'restitution and court costs.
He must undergo substance abuse and mental
health counseling.
He must visit Shanesa's grave the first Saturday of
every quarter, along with the anniversary of her death
each year (Dec.1), and leave evidence of his visit in
the form of a note, small stuffed animal, flower or.
some other token of his choosing.
Shanesa's family entered the courtroom July 16
wearing T-shirts bearing her likeness; the shirts


depicted her as an angel. Crob\by's fanuly and friends
were also present, and he -.vas seated with his parents
and attorney.
As the sentencing hearing, began, state attorney
Richard Combs recoiinted the events of the'day, and
Shanesa's family, including her mother, Regina
Jackson,; were visibly upset.
Combs called Crosby's driving "egregious," and
said this particular case "went beyond normal DUI
because (Crosby) didn't brake and went on."
"But for the damage to his vehicle, he may have
gotten away with this," Combs said. "He showed a
reckless abandonment with a total disregard for other
people present." He urged Judge Thomas Bateman to
sentence Crosby to at least the minimum required by
law, which is 145 months in jail.
After Combs' remarks, Kenyata Jackson, Shanesa's
aunt, spoke, along with other members of the famdn.
"Our: lives changed forever on Dec. 1, 2007,"
Kenyata Jackson said. "Had (Crosby) stayed (at the
scene of the accident), who knows what would have
happened? He has to live every day knowing he
killed 'a 7-year-old child...I forgive you and I hope
you will forgive yourself."
Regina Jackson described her daughter Shanesa,
along with Carpio, as a loving child who could "light
up a room with her smile."
"When I came home from work, she would take off
my shoes and massage my feet," Regina Jackson said
amidst tears. "I have another chill that is going

Local officials call on federal government to resolve water war


By ANGYE MORRISON
Times Managing Editor
Democratic congressman Allen
Boyd hosted a congressional
forum in Chattahoochee
Monday, bringing together
officials throughout the
Apalachicola, Flint and
Chattahoochee river areas to
discuss the southeastern drought
and low freshwater flows on the
rivers and bays and the affect


such a low flow has had on the
communities in North Florida.
"The people of North Florida,
who depend on the Apalachicola
River and Bay for their
livelihood, must be heard," Boyd
said. "I am eager for the corps
and others to hear firsthand from
our oystermen, shrimpers and
others along the river and bay
who have a tremendous stake in
the ACF issue. Those of us in
North Florida are committed to


making sure that Florida's
resources are protected. After
years of disputes, I will continue
working and- pushing on a local,
state and federal level to see that
a reasonable and long-term water
management solution for the
Apalachicola-Chattahoochee-
Flint system is developed."
SBoyd is calling for the three
states affected by the ACF issue,
Florida, Georgia and Alabama, to
come together and put together a


study to develop' a workable
solution for all three states.
"But it's going to be an uphill
battle; there are years of mistrust
between all three states," Boyd
said.
Special guest at the forum was
Cong. Heath Shuler, D-NC,
chairman of the Small Business
Subcommittee on Rural and
Urban Entrepreneufship. Shuler
is in his freshman year in
Congress, and is the only
- ., ,.


freshman in the House Resources
Committee. Shuler said his
biggest concern is the affect the
water crisis has had on small
business in rural areas.
David McLain, senior policy
director for the Apalachicola
Riverkeepers, agreed.
"We will prosper or fail,
depending on how well we take
care of small business. There are
small businesses that depend on
the riverss)" he said. "For too


long it's been 5 million people in
Atlanta versus the Florida
critters. This is how the division
of interstate water has been and
continues to be done. This must
change."
Jackson County Commissioner
Jeremy Branch said he feels the
needs of local folks have been
neglected, citing the outcries of
farmers in his area that say they'

wide copy machine needs to a
lease system, rather than
ownership. This would provide
an easier way for the district to


keep up with the ever-changing
technological advances as well
providing the most efficient
manner to provide proper
maintenance for the machines.
Items such as this are being
considered to cut costs wherever


possible.
Wood told the board the district
may face an additional 10
percent cut mandated by the
state.
"I don't think public education
can stand another 10 percent


cut," said Reginald James,
schools superintendent. "I don't
see it. The governor has to see
that."
School board member Judge
Helms Jr. agreed.
"I don't think that's realistic at
this point, but we can't ignore the
information we're getting. It's
realistic to think we could have
some more cuts this year," he
said. "If we get any more cuts,
we're going to have to have a
Plan B. We may have to make
cuts in the middle of the year,
and it may have an affect on
instruction."
"We're cutting bone now, not

unker down

with (

lOes


When we hunker down to talk, we're all on the same level. By
Kesley Colbert, just a good ol' boy that likes to write.


He should have called Mr.

Johsonius!


I heard where a guy wrote a book once
entitled something like, "All I Need. To
Know I Learned in Kindergarten." I've
never actually read the book, but I know he
was a lot smarter than me. I went to Miss
Katie Owens' kindergarten for the better
part of two years. I don't remember
anything except fighting Bobby Brewer for
a window seat in her big ol' station wagon.
And I think she gave us ice cream once.
fIf I learned any substantial life-changing
facts it was done subconsciously. But I
certainly get the gist of what the feller is
trying to say. It is amazing how those early
"lessons" stick with you through the years.
I had two brothers. 'And lots of boy
cousins. Girls were as foreign to me as
China dolls and poodle skirts when I eased.
into a back row seat in Miss Carolyn
Blades' first grade class. I don't know to
this day why I reached out and yanked Pam
Collins' hair. It was not the most
outstanding head of hair in the class by a
long sight! Pam had never done anything to
me. I really liked her. I still do!' She just
had the misfortune of sitting directly in
front of me and those curls were more
interesting than reading about ,Dick and
Jane.
I didn't pull as hard as I, could. She
screamed anyway! Miss Carolyn whipped
me. Mr. Mclver, my first principal,
whipped me. Pam beat me up just as soon
as we got to recess. Daddy whipped me
that evening before I could eat supper......
My hair-pulling stage ended forever the
_same day it started. No telling what they
would have done if I had grabbed her ear!
Life lessons abounded in those formative
years!
World War II happened between Leon's
birth and mine. Those five years loomed
mighty large when, as a 6-year-old, I had to
stare down the front yard "football field" at
my way-bigger brother. He would shove
me aside, run over me, leap-frog me, run
around me..... David was the only
teammate I could muster and he was a year
younger thah me and a little small for his
age. We'd both jump on Leon and he
would drag us over the goal line. Out of
sheer necessity we started attacking him
shin bone high. We would submarine him!
If we could cut his legs out from under him


we could get him down. It didn't take us
long to figure out it was a game of "low
man wins".
Fifty years later I find myself still
wrapped around a football. I've coached
more years than Robinson Crusoe was on
that island! I've studied films. I've been to
clinics and heard Shug Jordan, Pepper
Rodgers, Bill Curry, Johnny Majors, Steve
Spurrier et al pontificate on the art of
blocking, tackling, moving the ball,
keeping the other guy from advancing it,
the "in's" and "out's" of the intricacies of
football... When it gets down to crunch
time I put my arm around the guys and
whisper the most vital information they
need to survive in the game today, "low
man wins."
. #Desperation and last-ditch stands have
taught young people' more than Rand
McNally and the Encyclopedia Britannica
combined!
I learned patience standing in the pencil-
trimming line. I learned to share or Miss
Carolyn would make'you leave the clay
modeling table and go back to your seat. I
learned the wrath of your peers could be
pretty intimidating if you missed a word
and had to sit down in the boys vs. girls
Friday afternoon spelling bees. I learned if
you told Ricky Hale a secret it remained
that way. If you told Mary E. Pendleton
that same secret it would be a national
headline before you could eat though your
turnip green sandwich lunch.
As a kid it was great entertainment to
climb up on the commode and watch
Daddy shave. He would swipe that
leathered-up brush on each of my, cheeks
adid hand me the wrapper froir hi& Schick
double-edged safety razor. I would turn
that wrapper up on edge and shave my
"whiskers" just like Daddy. I always
started on the right side, rightbelow my
imaginary sideburn. Today, I have switched
to a Gillette Tract H and the whiskers,
unfortunately, are real and the joy of
shaving lost its luster eons ago. But I still
start on the right side,-high up on the
cheek, just below the right sideburn.
Habits formed early are habits indeed!
How about, "Clean that plate son, just
think of those starving children in India?"

Gadsden needs its own hospital
There's no question in my mind that the reopening,
of Gadsden Community Hospital is critical to the
health and well being of our families and our com-
munity. Every minute counts when a medical emer-
gency strikes. If someone in my family has a heart
attack or stroke, I want to be able to get them treat-
ment as soon as possible.
If the vote on Aug. 26 supports the half-cent tax,
the hospital could be open by Memorial Day of next
year. If the tax is rejected, the hospital could remain
closed forever. That would be a tragic loss to our
community. A half-cent sales tax doesn't seem like
much to pay to ensure our families local access to
24-hour emergency care, even in this economy.

Ball an all-around success
On July 12 the first annual Purple Hatter's Ball roared
along without incident and paid fitting tribute to our cher-
ished friend, Rachel Hoffman. Over the course of the day,
more than 300 people gathered peacefully to celebrate
Rachel's life, 13 bands played beautiful music, fireworks
exploded for 90 seconds at exactly 9:38 p.m. to honor her
spirit and more than $2,500 of net proceeds were generated
for the Rachel Hoffman Momingstar Foundation.
We thank our friends in Gadsden County and, more specif-
ically in the Wetumpka area, for allowing this beautiful
memorial to happen in our .-.ghborhood.
The organizers of The Purple Hatter's Ball and the Bear
Creek Music and Art Festival are aware of concerns regard-
ing our events by some Gadsden County residents. I hope
that the successful operation of the Purple Hatter's Ball will
help dispel some of the misunderstandings about this gather-
ing and will help bring the dialogue about these types of
events to a more informed place in the future. Over the
course of the Purple Hatter's Ball, traffic flowed smoothly
and without interruption on Highway 267. Sheriff's deputy


Allegedly




Speaking


by Angye Morrison, Managing Editor


Empty pockets would get my

attention and earn my vote


I'm not sure if anyone else saw the
headline last week that presidential
hopeful Barack Obama's campaign
officials announced the total amount
of campaign funds' raised for the
month of June. The figure was
astonishing you may want to sit
down for this one they raised $52
million. In one month. And that's not
even the total, amount of funds the
campaign has at its disposal. All
totaled, Obama's campaign is in the
black to the tune of $72 million. That
means that they have $72 million to
spend.
Obama-rival John McCain's
campaign raised a mere $22 million
in June. But don't feel sorry for him
- his campaign officials said that
combined with funds from the
Republican National Committee,
McCain's campaign has about $95
million on hand.
Are you kidding me? There's that
much cash flowing through the
campaign trail? Who'd have guessed
it?
I have to say that while I believe
wholeheartedly in the political
process, the part it plays in our
country- and the power it gives
Americans, 'I find it completely
ludicrous that there's this kind of
money being raised and spent for


campaigns.
Now don't get me wrong; I know
that television and print advertising
costs a pretty penny, and it costs
money to hire people to run a
campaign. I get it. The presidential
candidates have bills to pay, too.
But if a candidate really wanted to
get my attention, he or she should do
one thing use that money to help
Americans, instead of helping
themselves.
For example, in every major city in
America, and even some not-so-big
cities, you will find homeless people.
I'm not talking about the people who
are homeless because they're lazy or
they chose to drop but of society. I'm
talking about those people who lost a
job or a home and had nowhere to
go.
I have met and talked with probably
25 to 30 homeless people in various
parts of the country, and their stories
are most often not that they just don't
want to operate within the confines
of a "normal" lifestyle, but rather
that they suddenly found themselves
in a situation that left them with few
alternatives.
Then there's the issue of hunger in
America. In this country, it becomes
easy to think that since we're in the

Give thought to that vote come Aug. 26- you or your loved
one may need the much-anticipated Gadsden hospital


You may have known someone like the
hardworking family man who never missed a
day's work. He went to church every Sunday
morning and spent time" with his kids, helping
them with school projects and homework and
'coaching their sports teams. One afternoon, as
he was returning to his desk after lunch, the
man felt a shooting pain in his right arm. He
suddenly felt nauseous and began sweating
profusely. Coworkers became concerned.
They dialed 911 just as he collapsed to the
floor.
While the emergency responders frantically
worked to "bring back" the man, they
exchanged hushed words of frustration: If this
man lived just one county over, he would be
less than 10 minutes away from the nearest
hospital emergency room. The odds would be
in his favor that he would survive this heart
attack and return to work and church and fam-
ily.
This is a'risk that people in our county face
every day. When Gadsden Community
Hospital closed three years ago, our commu-
nity lost critical .24-hour emergency care.
Now, if a life-threatening emergency strikes,
help is a 45-minute ambulance ride away.
That could be 40 minutes too long if a family
member is having a heart attack or stroke.
On Aug. 26, our community will have the
opportunity to vote on a half-cent sales tax to
reopen the hospital. With so many families
struggling to make ends meet in these difficult
economic times, it's an important decision that
will take careful consideration.
Access to quality health care is key to the
health and vitality of any community. Here in
Gadsden County, nearly one in five residents
lives on a monthly income of $816 or less.


And the incidence of infant mortality is, near-
ly twice that of the state as a whole.
Reopening the hospital would give our fam-
ilies access to 24-hour emergency care, diag-
nostic and rehabilitation services and a clinic
with specialty physicians. That will mean that
our families, friends and neighbors will be
able to get care right here in our community.
And it will create up to 72 new jobs with good
salaries.
There is no question that there is great
power in prayer. But God also has given each
of us, individually, power; the power to set old
prejudices aside and be part of a greater com-
munity, the power to let our voices be heard
when solutions are within our reach. This is
one of those junctures in time where'a tremen-
dous obstacle can be overcome-if we speak
with one voice and extend the same concern
to our neighbors that we have for our own and
our families' well-being.
If we don't vote now to reopen the hospital,
if may remain closed forever. The Urgent
Care Center may also be forced to close, leav-
ing our community without access to local
emergency care.
A half-cent tax is a small price to pay to pro-
tect our families if a life-threatening emer-
gency strikes. It's our insurance that when a
medical crisis arises, we will be just minutes
from the nearest hospital and a team of health
care professionals who not only work, but live
in our community. Make your voice heard.
Go to the polls on August 26 and vote as if
your life depended on it, because it very well
might.

Jim Corder and his helpful staff made sure of that. We spoke
with many neighbors after the Purple Hatter's Ball and were
told that the audio level was acceptable and not intrusive at
their homes. Commissioner Brenda Holt and County
Manager Marlon Brown both made visits to the property to
verify this and asserted as much at the last commissioners
meeting. We monitored Hwy 267 closely to make sure that
no trash from our guests found its way to the roadside. The
sheriff's department confirmed that there were no arrests of
any kind associated with this event and there were no report-
ed injuries to any guests. Folks acted in a civilized, peaceful
and loving manner.
While the Purple Hatter's Ball was a fundraiser, it still had
many expenses. Though small in scale, the financial break-
down of the event makes clear the economic impact these
type events can have on Gadsden County and the surround-
ing area. Of an entire operating budget of roughly $7,000,
more than $2,000 was spent in Gadsden County on services
such as security, box office help, insurance, porto-john facili-
ties, gas, food and supplies. The bait store outside our gate
enjoyed an unexpected great day. Several guests including


INazis at


Lake


Talquin not


welcome

From the earliest days of my
childhood memory, I have
enjoyed countless days of fish-
ing on Lake Talquin. My early
years were spent fishing with
my father, who was an avid fish-
erman. I have fished every place
that I have lived, which includes
places from Fort Benning to the
Puget Sound.
Last Friday, as I pulled into the
entrance of Robinson's Fish
Camp, to my complete amaze-
ment I was greeted by two neo-
Nazi symbols boldly painted on
the entrance signs. One symbol
was the SS bolts which signified
the Schutzstaffel' Heinrich
Himmler's police forces. The
double SS symbols resemble
lightening strikes. These men
were the super-obedient, single-
minded members who ranged
from agents of the Gestapo to
soldiers to guards at concentra-
tion and death camps.
The other symbol was the
swastika, a former ancient, reli-
gious, good luck
symbol that was turned to
appear to rotate clockwise.
Hitler adopted this well-known
symbol for his Nazi party. The
swastika is displayed on the red,
black and white Nazi flag.
Today, these two symbols are
used by hate group/extremist
organizations like the neo-
Nazis, racist skinheads and
white supremacists. These sym-
bols are frequently seen in. neo-
Nazi tattoos and graffiti and
characterize the beliefs of neo-
Nazis, and racist, skinhead vio-
lence, anti-Semitism, white
supremacy and fascism.
I was, of course, surprised and
shocked to see the symbols. To
my knowledge, there haven't
been any active neo-Nazis or-
skinheads in Gadsden County. (I
informed the sheriff of' the
signs.) Maybe it is true that the
more things change, the more
the stay the same. I am sure that
the persons) responsible for
this graffiti intentionally chose'
the Robinson site because it is
mostly used by black fisherman.
The intention of the symbols are
not known, but the sad fact is
that they existed at all.
I am well-traveled and have
lots of memories of earlier days
.of marches, bombings, hang-
ings, fire hoses and dogs. I am
also a Vietnam veteran. I have'
Witnessed man's inhumanity to
man across this nation and
abroad. I believe that I earned
the right to at least fish in peace.
I do not intend to stop fishing. I
do not intent to stop going 'to
Robinson's landing. I expect to,
be left alone with the solitude of
my fishing. I now apologize to
any one who sees me going fish-
ing with my poles and. shotgun.

Quincy


the folks fromABC's "20/20"' stayed at a local hotel. Several
guests hired a local locksmith. Many guests bought goods
and services at nearby stores. The Bear Creek Music and Art
festival operates on a budget some 50 times great than this
small production. Last year, had Bear Creek been approved
by Gadsden County, the economic impact locally would
have been substantial. Furthermore, and perhaps more
importantly, festival tourism is the best kind of economics
for any community. Folks come for two or three days, they
have a great experience, they spend money locally and then
they leave. Had Bear Creek been allowed in Gadsden
County, maybe this year it would have been a fundraiser to
help re-open the Gadsden Community Hospital.
The Ponderosa Wildlife Preserve is a special place custom
made for community oriented, fundraising events. We hope
that the ball will help Gadsden County residents better
understand the potential of the Ponderosa and that it should
be cherished as a community jewel to be utilized for the
enrichment of Gadsden County and its citizens.

in stable condition. It is not
known if the passenger was
wearing a seatbelt at the time of
the accident, which is still under
investigation.
Damage to the vehicle was
estimated at $4,000.
On July 20, at 3:15 am., 31-
year-old Joe Lee Denson of


Gretna was traveling westbound
on County Road 268. His 2005
Ford truck, according to FHP
reports, left the roadway and
rolled onto the north shoulder,
where it struck a large tree.
Denson was pronounced dead at
the scene. FHP reports indicated
that he was not wearing a seatbelt
at the time of the accident.
Damage to the vehicle is
estimated at $15,000.

everything from clothes to
cologne, according to a report
on file at the Quincy Police
Department. They then took
most of the items to the
pawnshop, but not before two
of them changed into some of
Clark's clothing they had
stolen.
After showing his Florida ID
to the pawn shop owner, police
traced Jamichael Cox to a
relative's home, which was the
address on his identification.
Clark accompanied police to
Cox's residence to identify
other belongings that might be
in the apartment, where they
found Cox still 'dressed in one
of Clark's outfits. After getting
permission to look for the
stolen items, officers found
Cox's uncle, Antonio
Richardson, lounging in a back
bedroom, wearing a pair of
Clark's shorts.
They also found in the
bedroom other items of clothing
and shoes that belonged to
Clark as well as his laptop, a
book bag that contained Clark's
Play Station II and accessories.
Cox's mother, Pamela
Jackson, told officers she 'had
seen her son and her brother
(Richardson) taking clothes out
of bags and hanging them up in
her home. According to the
report, Richardson said he ran
across Cox and Jaron McNealy
with the clothes and they told
him the items were stolen, but
Richardson said he knew
nothing off the burglary; he
simply took a pair of shorts out
of the bag of clothes as payment
for taking Cox to the pawn
shop.
Cox said all three spent
Sunday night together 'and at
8:30 a.m. Monday, they called
Alfred E. Denson Jr. to take
them to rob Clark's apartment.
Denson parked near the Clark
home while Cox, McNealy and
Richardson all knocked on
doors at, other apartments to
make sure no one was home.
Richardson, according to Cox,
entered through a back .window
and let Cox and McNealy in
.through the front door.
Cox said he stood outside near
a window while Richardson and
McNealy passed items to him
while he remained behind the
wheel of the Denson vehicle.
All four were booked into the
county jail.


From HUNKERIN' on Page 4

Mother preached this all the
time. I dutifully finished up. I
certainly didn't want a
malnourished Indian on my
conscious! It was study hall my
junior year. when Buddy
Wiggleton and Kenny Beasley
laid out the impossibility of us
finishing our brown beans and
cornbread (or not finishing them)
affecting in any shape, form or
fashion the nutritional status of a
young boy half way around the
world! It was too late! I was, and
am to this day, programmed to
take all I want.....but want all I
take.
Unfortunately, every lesson
didn't "sink in" back in those
young years. I remember
watching Daddy attempt to repair


our 100-year-old washing.
machine. Daddy was a truck
driver. He had no washing
machine repair knowledge but
Mr. Johnsonius would charge
upwards to $3 to come out to the
house. "What are you doing?" I
had-crawled in between him and
the chrome thing.
"Son, not now, I'm busy. Go on
and play."
"I wanna see. Why won't it
work?"
"You're in the way; go on
outside!" This exchange went on
for several minutes, Dad getting
more irritated with each
interruption. Finally, I pushed too
far, "Kes, if you don't go on, I am
going to whip you." Now, he
wasn't about to whip me. He was


just trying to "nudge" me out of
his way. He was way too
occupied with the repairs.
"You'll have to catch me first!"
I engaged my mouth before my
brain had reasoned through this
thing! It was like the Pam
Collins' hair-pulling fiasco...only
worse! I didn't make it to the
back steps. He took the
frustrations of not being a
washing machine repair man out
on my behind!
You would have thought it
would have been enough to keep
me from' ever uttering another
stupid, inconsiderate, untimely,
moronic word. -It wasn't! But
those are other stories......
Respectfully,
Kes

"land of plenty," there can't possibly be

and organizations that are providing food and
shelter for those who need it. Am I being
overly simplistic? Maybe. But simple
problems deserve simple answers. If
someone's hungry, you feed him. If a person
has nowhere to go, you help him find shelter.
Seems to me if there's that much money out
there, just sort of floating around, it could -
and should be used in a much more
productive way.
Besides, if a candidate did that, I'm sure
he'd make headlines. And that, my friends, is
' the kind of publicity you couldn't buy if you
wanted to.


what happened," he said.
Bateman questioned -Crosby as
to whether he believes he has an
alcohol problem, to which he
responded, "No." Crosby said he
had alcohol in the tool box of his
pickup at the time of the incident,
and said it had been there "a
while."
"This is a typical behavior for
people who have trouble with
alcohol," Bateman said, adding
that binge drinking is a problem
for young people in Crosby's age
group.
Crosby said he "didn't have a
problem saying no" to alcohol, but
"most of the drinking that goes on
(with people his age) is binge
drinking." As for the
consequences that come from this
type of behavior, Crosby said, "I
don't think anyone's worried
about it."


As for handing down the
sentence, Bateman called the case
one of the most difficult he's
encountered, and asked Bryce
Crosby what he should do. Crosby
said he didn't know.
"I feel the same way," Bateman
said.
After a brief recess, the judge
returned to the courtroom and
handed down the sentence. Bryce
Crosby was taken into custody
immediately.
Following the sentencing,
Regina Jackson said she felt the
judge had been .fair in his
decision.
"I think it was very fair," she
said.
"He got what he deserved," said
Joe Cox, Shanesa's father. "More
time won't bring her back."

Craig Crosby, the father of
Bryce Crosby, also addressed the
court.
"I don't know what to say. One
of the things that went through
my mind was the expression, 'but

I've always enjoyed reading
books but do very little of it.
However, there is an author


whose books I'll quickly grab
and find the time to read.
Tim Dorsey is that guy. and


you'lll
about


find yourself reading
any place in this craz\


state in his zany books.
My ol' buddy Jerry Wvynn
got me started on Dorsev's
books. and I have enjoyed all
I've read.
A month ago, I ran across
"Atomic Lobster" in a book-
store in Panama City. Read it
in a week. Two weeks ago I
saw "'Hurricane Punch" on
Times Editor Alice DuPont's
desk, and asked her if I could


borrow it. Read it in a week.
"Triggerfish Twist." '"The
Stingray Shuffle."
"Hanmmerhead Ranch Motel,"
"Orange Crush." "Florida
Roadkill," "The Big Bamboo,"
"Torpedo Juice" and "Cadillac
Beach" are other Dorsey
books.
I haven't yet read some of
the others I want to.
Dorsey's books mostly fol-
low the exploits of -Serge
Storms, a most imaginative


serial killer who only does in
those that deserve it.
Storms and his cohorts cover.
about all the nooks and cran-.
nies in this state during their
adventures, and Dorsey is well-
versed in the histories of those
nooks and crannies. He and
Serge never miss a chance to
educate readers of those histo-
ries.
The books are definitely R-
rated. Thus far they've been-E-
rated for me. Enjoyable.

Hilary Flournoy of Quincy recently returned from two weeks of traveling to USTA tennis tournaments. The first stop was in Naples, Florida at a
national tournament for the top girls and boys 14's, where she won five 'out of 10 matches. "It was an honor to get into this tournament," Hilary A
said. "Only the top 12 kids in each state were allowed to attend."
After returning from Naples, she traveled to the North, Florida Area Tim Acura Super Series, which was held at Fort Walton Beach. She played in
the Girls 14 Division which was an extremely large division for this area. Hilary pulled it out after three days three days of solid matches. Due to the
rain. delays, she had to play three matches a day, instead of two, which meant much wear and tear on her body, but it ended with her winning-the-


entire girls 14 division.
She would like to thank her coach Nick Crowell, the men's assistant coach at Florida State University, for everything he has done. She remarked,
"He has really brought my game to the next level."
But most importantly, a big thank you goes to the local businesses which sponsored her in the tournaments. They are Allman Tree Service,
Lightman Lighting and Electric, Brian Scruggs Construction, A-1 Auto Repair, Charles McClellan Funeral Home, Outback Properties, Lolly's Rental
and Lolly's Tree Service. Without the support of the local businesses, her trips to the tournaments would not have been possible. Hilary said, "I truly
thank my sponsors."
Her next adventure will be this coming weekend in Tallahassee where she will be playing in the Girls 14 Designated.

Good news for Florida recreational boaters


Nearly 1 million Florida
boaters, who could have faced
hefty fines under new environ-
mental rules going into effect
this fall, received some good
news from Congress Tuesday.
Lawmakers exempted recre-
ational boats from what they
deemed to be overly-broad
water discharge rules. The
exemption, crafted by Florida
Democrat Bill Nelson, makes


clear that recreational boaters
won't need government permits
or face fines under environmen-
tal rules Congress initially
passed to cover discharges by
big ocean-going vessels such as
tankers and cargo ships.
Nelson's measure won unani-
mous passage in both the Senate
and House of Representatives,
and now heads to the president
for his signature. The measure

Native son brings New Orleans art


to his hometown of Quincy


Grandmother's influence tops artist's influences


By ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor -


When Dean Mitchell comes
to Quincy, it's almost as if a
beloved family member who has
been gone much too long is
coming home.
"Dean is coming. Dean is
coming. Have you heard that
Dean is coming?" some ask.
Mitchell is coming home this
Friday to open one of the
biggest shows he has ever
brought to his hometown. Grace
Maloy, executive director of the
Gadsden Art Center, said ',
Mitchell would have 41 paint-
ings on display.
"The show, called 'Dean
Mitchell's New Orleans,' is an
exhibition of Mitchell's work
that reveals the sights and spirit
of a cultural legacy, unique only
to New Orleans.
"My first visit to New
Orleans came in 1984. as in a
sense a coming home. a return
to the South where I \%as raised:
not in New Orleans itself. but on
the Gulf Coast. You see. I
moved to Kansas Cit for a job
as a commercial illustrator. That
job ended for me in 1983. lea\ -
ing me in Kansas Cirt at loose
ends. The trip to Ne%% Orleans
grounded my soul. I felt some-
thing deeper, something richer
in this southern unique city. The
people,-their faces spoke ol a
distant past of both joy and pain.
This joy and pain %%as celebrat-
ed through music, dance and
food," Mitchell said.
"The streets x\ere pa\ed % ith
creative talent of the past and
present. The arctutecture % as
incredible. The bnck. the shut-
ters, the uneven cur es of the
streets, the narrow passage % a. s
created a vibrant qua] i r in
which both onlookers from bal-
conies could interact, creating a
vibrant energy. I ha e al I a% s
been amazed by \% hat people
could create with their bare
hands but this citN\ % as more
than brick and'mortar." Mitchell
said, recalling his
feeling about he
city he loves to
paint.
Over the past
20 years the
Quincy native
has been
enchanted by.
New Orleans, ,
sensing that it is
"the soul of a
nation."
When speak-
ing about his
countless paint-
ings of the Big
Easy, Mitchell
said he has
poured his soul
into each paint-
ing to honor
those who have
left us with
such haunting
and incredible
beauty. This
exhibition
offers a
glimpse into


what New Orleans was like
before Hurricane Katrina
destroy ed much of the historic
architecture in 2005, Maloy
said.
Mitchell said the city spoke,
to his soul through the very peo-
ple who built the city and he is
constantly amazed that the city,
although surrounded by a vul-
nerable environment, has sur-
vived.
"You can see it in its weath-
ered architecture, the weathered
facades; its rustic, earthy quality.
that I have always loved as an
artist.,I have poured my soul
into each painting to honor those
who have left us ,. ith such
ha unt ng and incredible beauty. I
have always known, since child-
hood, that New Orleans was a
vulnerable place. And believe it
or notI used to walk through
the st eets wondering if this
place would be standing for
generations to come This \was
before Katrina." he said. "The
buildings are like portraits. I sa\
this because upon entering into
this project I though I knev the
place. ha ing captured s;o much
of the architecture oer the past
20 years." he said

During his talk. Mitchell k ill

Quincy and New Orleans.
\ which has been nurturing for /
Mjichell He -said that he never

an American artist," Mitchell
said.
Mitchell has received many
accolades, awards and recogni-
tions in his career. But he will
be the first to tell anyone that it
all started in Quincy many years
when his grandmother, Marie
Mitchell, gave him a paint-by-
numbers watercolor set when he
was a small boy.
But it was his natural talent,
perseverance and desire to excel
that catapulted him into what
New York Times art critic
Michael Kimmelman called a,
"modem day Vermeer."
He was also named ":i best
bet" for collectors in the
ARTnews by R. Crosby Kemper
Jr., founder of the Museum of
Contemporary Art in Kansas
City, Mo. The Kemper museum
houses one of the most exten-
sive Mitchell Collections dn the
country.


Mitchell never forgets his
roots, nor will he let others.
"People always ask me about
my training and which artists
influences me most. I tell them
about my upbringing in Quincy
and that my grandmother influ-,
enced me most," he


That little paint
wet was only the
beginning and today

400 awards, including
the Arts for the Parks

Exhibition $50.000
grand prize and the
gold medal for the
American Watercolor
Society) 131st annual
international exhibi-
-tion.
Two years ago,
Mitchell left Kansas
City and moved to


He said the move was made
partly because he wanted to be
closer to home and that the
weather is milder.
"I'm just happy to be.close to
home," he said.

importantly, the edu-
cation of our chil-
dren.
However, I
pledge to stay the
course and ensure
continuous improve-
ment in our school
district.
We know these funds are from
the state of Florida, the state
Department of Education and other
governmental areas. Nevertheless,
not only does Gadsden County face
these significant cutsm but also
other school systems in the state of
Florida and the nation as well.


Despite this major issue, I am
still committed and feel strongly
that we must continue to educate
our boys and girls to the fullest of
their potential. I am very proud that
we all are a part of
this time in Gadsden's
__' history in which we
see the rising scores
of our school grades
and higher, achieve-
ment gains of our stu-
dents, higher gradua-
tion rates,'parent pat-
ticipation and the
positive direction of
our county's school
district.
I will continue to voice sugges-
tions to implement positive strate-
gies in the areas of school safety,
student discipline, behavior control
and student and school perform-
ance improvement in all of our
schools.

Through working closely with
all of you as stakeholder in our
community (parents, community
members, faculty, staff and law
enforcement), I will continue to
endorse the best curriculum for stu-
dents arid work hard to solve other
problems before violence and loss
of control occur.
As youp board member, I will
continue to be visible in our schools
and in the community and make
myself available to speak with you
at any time. I believe there is not a
problem we cannot solve if we
work together as a team and as a
community.
The citizens in District 5 have
made it clear that Gadsden County
needs a proven leader in this posi-
tion and a school board member
who is experienced to help move
the school system progressively
into the future, and I thank you.
Cast your vote for a proven leader.


During my tenure on the school
board, I gladly accepted the respon-
sibility of facilitating various com-
mittees and serving in several lead-
ership capacities as school board
chairman for three years and vice
chairman for three years.
. As your elected representative, I
was motivated and dedicated to
serve you to the best of my abilities.
Therefore, I completed a pre-
scribed program of studies which
includes all of the important aspects
of being an effective school board
member. Upon completion of this
program, I earned certification from
the Florida School Board
Association as a certified school
board member in the state of
Florida.
With this distinction, having
served on the board for the last eight
years has given me'the experience
that complements the status of
receiving the FSBA certification.


As your school board represen-
tative for District 5,1 I am also total-
ly aware of the professionalism,
dignity and integrity needed and the
need of a cooperative working rela-
tionship with otherfboard members,
the superintendent, teachers and
staff members. I believe that with
all of us working, closely together
will provide an educational system
in Gadsden County that will make
all of us extremely proud.
It brings me joy to stay active in
community support booster groups,
mentoring and serving as a member
of the board of directors for
Communities in Schools of
Gadsden Inc., a non-profit agency.
In addition, as manager of the
Tallahassee Community College
Gadsden Service Center (TCC
Quincy House), I see that a world of
opportunities has opened for our
students.
The center provides FCAT


math, reading, writing and science
tutoring, and computers,' morals,
values and social skills training, as
well as mentoring, foreign language
and field trip experiences and a host'
of other educational opportunities
for students and their families.
Through the grace of God I 'will.
always place emphasis on the edu-,
cation in my life. I remember where
I came from and it was the'knowl-
edge I received from our school
system and a caring community that,
lead me to always dedicate my,
efforts to the education and well-.
being of my own children and the
children in this county.
I believe in educating the whole.
child. Join me in supporting a.
process that will bring parents, stu-'
dents, teachers and the community
together with one purpose in mind -
to provide the best education possi--
ble for the children of Gadsden
Cotfty.


Greensboro

Elementary

School's

'dream team'
Annette Walker and Tunisia
Hairston, fifth grade teachers at
Greensboro Elementary School,
have been called the "dream
team." They are the mother and
daughter team whose classes
have earned the highest science
scores in Gadsden County and
have beat the state of Florida's
science average for two straight
years. When asked about the
designation, they said, "All of
Greensboro Elementary
School's faculty and staff are
the dream team. It takes all of
us to be successful. Our
administrators, Principal Ella
Ponder and Assistant Principal
Stephen Pitts, are all about the
success and safety of the facul-
ty, staff and students. 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."


4First birthdays are printed at no charge, but you must

W ring a birth certificate for the child listing both parents,

if both parents are in listed in the birthday announce-

ment. If the father is not listed on the birth certificate, he

must produce identification in our office.

There are no exceptions. Announcements are due by

noon on Monday for the Thursday edition.

tinue to offer state of Florida employees

time state employees are eligible to take

pate in the program. State of Florida

financial aid are eligible to use the TCC
state employee tuition waiver. However,
state university system employees are not
eligible to participate.

lege by logging on to

port.tcc.fl.edu during the established reg-
.istration window. After successfully, reg-
istering for a class, state employees must
