Commissioners


tell GCSO to get


budget inline


By ALICE DUPONT
Times Editor
With two months left in the fis-
cal year, the Gadsden County
Sheriff's Office informed
Gadsden County commissioners
during, the regular meeting
Tuesday night that they are
operating on a shortfall.
Unsympathetic, the chairman of
the county commission, Ed
.Dixon, said the sheriff's office
needs to learn how to manage its
money.
Maj. Shawn Wood said that as
of Tuesday there were 275
inmates in the county jail, a
facility built to house 157 peo-
ple. He speculated that by 2009
the average daily count could
reach 300.
"You can tell by the economy.
If people can't pay their proba-
tion, child support or restitution,
they're going to end up in jail,"


Wood said.
Also adding to the bottom line
is ever-increasing medical and
food costs. He said overcrowd-
ing causes, conflicts between
inmates that can lead to fights,
and the facility has experienced.
several confrontations in the last
few days.
"Inmates who, don't go to the
doctor when they are outside
come to the jail with multiple
health problems and we have to
take them to the doctor. It's
coming, I just want to let you
know," Wood told commission-
ers.
"Don't say anything is com-
ing. You need to manage your
budget. Your budget staff needs
to now what you're looking at
before it breaks down. At the
end of the day, it's about manag-
ing your money. It's two months

Assistant state attorney Mark
Johnson told a Gadsden County
jury last week to connect the
dots and the picture would
become clear that Quintarious
Shorter killed Travis Sentel
Green on April 25, 2001. The
jury apparently believed him
and found Shorter guilty of first-
degree murder Aug. 14.
The jury returned a guilty ver-
dict within an hour and Shorter
was sentenced to life in prison.
But defense attorney Clyde
Taylor argued that the prosecu-
tion's case against Shorter was
based on the word of two "jail-
house snitches." Both men,
Craig Stevens- and James


Tennell, testified during the
three-day trial that Shorter con-
fessed to them that he killed
Green. Stevens and Tennell told
the jury that Shorter sought
them out at the Gadsden County
Jail and solicited information in
order to get-the murder charges
reduced.
Shorter's 82-year-old grand-
mother, Minnie Baker, said that
Shorter and a friend came to her
Gretna home around 8:30 a.m.
on the morning of April 25 and
did not leave until after lunch.
She testified they were dropped
off by someone driving a white
car. Rashard Brown said he
owned the white car and that he
had dropped Shorter and

Schools are headed 'right

direction' say officials


By ANGYE MORRISON
Times Managing Editor
Gadsden County Schools are
off to a great start on another
promising year, according to
Reginald James, Gadsden
County superintendent of
schools.
"We are really offi to a good
start. We had minimal problems
for a first day," James said.
The superintendent added that
enrollment is up in general and
"that's exciting."
"When parents' confidence
increases or improves, the stu-
dents return," he said.
"Enrollment is up a couple hun-
dred. We should have a final
count in the next few days."
James went on to say that other
than a few kinks in the bus
route,' there were no major
issues.
"We're headed in the right
direction. I'm pleased, overall,"


he said. "Everything is moving
in the right direction."
Several schools reported new
information that parents and stu-
dents may want to know. These
items include:
* There are new lunch prices at
Crossroad Academy Charter
School of Business. Breakfast
has a new reduced price of 30
cents, while a reduced lunch
will cost 40 cents. The regular
cost for'breakfast is $1.35, while
a regular lunch will cost $2.20.
Applications for reduced lunch-
.es are available from homeroom
teachers and in the school
office. There is also a change in
required first grade reading. The
new required book is "The
Night Before First Grade," by
Natasha Wing.
At East Gadsden High, a new
intensive instructional plan enti-
tled "Closing the Gap" has been
implemented. The program

Accident victim didn't know how to swim


By ALICE DUPONT
Times Editor

Jamal Bernard Gordon, 6, who
drowned Aug.' 10 in Havana,
could not swim, according to a
report released by the Gadsden
County Sheriff's Office Aug. 14.
"From all of the information
we have at this point, the child
didn't know how to swim and


slipped in the deep end of the
pool by mistake," said Lt. Jim
Corder of GCSO.
Gordon had attended a pool
party at a home on Collins Road
near Havana with his aunt. He
arrived at the party around 5
p.m. and went into the pool after
changing. There were adults in
the pool and the pool had an area
cordoned off for children.


According to the report, about
30 minutes after Jamal entered
the pool, his aunt's stepfather
began looking for the child.
Other adults joined in and
searched the property and the
perimeters. The water in the pool
was cloudy and investigators
said even they could not see the
bottom of the deep end when
they arrived.


Witnesses said they never saw
Jamal get into the pool nor did
they hear a splash. Another child
finally found Jamal and a family
friend, Matthew Crawford,
pulled the child out. Crawford
and another man administered
CPR but the child could not be
revived. He was taken by heli-
copter to Tallahassee Memorial
Hospital where he was pro-


nounced dead.
"When he went down the steps
to the deep end, it is my conclu-
sion that he came off the last step
apd slipped below the water.
Not knowing how to swim he
would have immediately
dropped below the water pre-
venting a splash or -event creat-
ing the scene of him fighting the
water to survive," wrote investi-


gator Ulysses Jenkins in the
report.
The water at the deep end of
the pool was 8 tol0 feet.
No lifeguard was on duty, but
there was security personnel on
site. No charges are expected to
be filed.
"As far as the law is concerned,
we have to investigate this as
just a tragic accident," Corder

Contemplation



Remember: They'll hold your

future in the palms of their hands


In less than a week we will make some
important decisions. The people we
place in office are the one who will
affect us most directly. That's why it's so
important to research the candidates and
look at their track records.
Television and radio commercials,
newspaper ads and candidate literature
give us a snapshot into what the
candidate wants to tell us about himself
or herself. But we have to look further
than what candidates tell us.
Voters are responsible for educating
themselves on the issues. You must not
take anything for granted, you must ask
tough questions, you must study the pros
and cons and weigh whether or. not the
person is the one you want to represent
you. You must decide whether the
person will represent you or if they will
represent themselves when tough
challenges arise.
You can be sure that there will be
difficult choices to make in the coming
years. Will the person be able to
withstand pressures that are sure to come
from people who oppose the issues? Will
they be able to support issues that are
good for the majority of the citizens?
Will they be honest and forthright now

and in the future?
All elections are important because the
people we elect will shape the future.
The people we elect will decide for us
when and where infrastructure will be
placed in our community. These
decisions have a ripple effect because
wherever businesses and economic
development follow water, sewer and
underground utilities.
The people you elect will be in charge
of the future of your children. The
people you elect will decide what classes
are important. They will decide whether
the schools are safe. The people you
elect will decide which courses will be
4 taught in our schools.
The people you elect will decide
whether you or a loved one will go to
prison or a behavioral treatment facility.
They will decide your experience
whether the court system is a good or
bad one depending on the treatment you
receive.
Presidential elections are important,
but what happens to you on a day-to-day
basis will be decided, for the most part,
next Tuesday. It is important that you
make the right decision.

"Do or do not; there is no try."
-Yoda, "Star Wars"

By Angye Morrison, Managing Editor



Allegedly Speakin


Political climate here is,

urn, interesting and distinct


I've been through a lot of elections in my
time, and as a journalist, it seems they're
all the same. We cover who's running for
what as we move toward Election Day, we
publish endless campaign advertisements
and we hear candidates stump throughout
the community. Some newspapers endorse
candidates, a policy which The Gadsden
County Times does not hold. I've worked
at papers where we did endorse candidates,
and I can tell you that while I appreciate
the intestinal fortitude behind those
endorsements, I didn't enjoy dealing with
the mess left after those endorsements
were announced. It certainly was not a
pleasant experience to have "that"
conversation with the candidate we didn't
choose.
The local election scene has been, well,
interesting, for me as a newcomer to the
community. I find the political climate here
distinct and never boring, and I'm sure the
upcoming election will be nothing less.
I've seen more bickering amongst
candidates than I've witnessed in quite a
while, but hey, that makes life interesting
for me as a resident and as a journalist.
What I don't like about the bickering,
here or anywhere else, is what it says about
the candidates. When a group of people or
any given individuals are more concerned
about what other people are saying or
doing, rather than what the real issues are
and what can be done to improve things,
there's a huge problem. And it certainly
doesn't provide the promise of a bright
future under such leadership.
What I have seen that I've enjoyed and'
appreciated are the people who've been
lined up in downtown Quincy each day,
waving signs and calling out to drivers.
They've campaigned for individual
candidates and issues and they've been


out there much longer than folks I've seen
elsewhere. I've been amazed that they've
continued on, despite the heat or rain.
That's some great support.
On a different note, I traveled down to
Tampa last weekend to see my brother and
his family, along with my mother and her
cousin. The best thing about the visit was
spending time with my 3-year-old niece,
Amanda. She's something else. Every time
'I'm around her, I learn something new.
And I try to teach her something new. I've
taught her to say such classics as, "Oh, no
you di-ent," "That's how I roll," "Peace
,out, homee" and the latest addition to her
ever-growing list of "Angye-isms"...
"'Charge it to Daddy." I have to admit, she
says it well.
She also began school this week. She's
going to 3-year-old pre-k, and I can't
believe she's old enough to be there. It
seems like just yesterday that I was
holding her for the first time and marveling
that my baby brother had a baby of his
own.
She's an amazing critter, and it's all
because she has an awesome daddy...and
mommy. They're doing a great job as

Save our land for
future generations

Since March, the residents
of Oak Grove have been
fighting the Gadsden County
commission over a proposed
cluster development known as
Paradise Gardens, slated to be
built on rural land in the com-
munity of Oak Grove on U.S.
Highway 90.
Oak Grove residents, along
with Raymond Hurst and
myself, sat on a Steering com-
mittee years ago for the comp
plan. We recommended this
rural area be zoned one home
per 40 acres to save for all
farms and family lands which,
have been there for up to six
generations.
The old planning and zoning
director Lynnwood Herring
arbitrallily drew a circle at
the intersection of Atwater
Road and Highway 90, I
believe, proclaiming it rural
residential.
Now a developer wants to
take 18 acres of wetland and
creek bottom and cram 11
small vinyl sided low Income
houses on it, ruining our way
of life in rural Oak Grove.
We residents convinced the
planning and zoning board to
turn the development down
twice because of the incapata-.
bility. Noise, Traffic, and
crime will also increase in our
community.
But most importantly there
are graves buried somewhere
on this proposed site that are
the oral history passed down
six generations to me.
I know that 38 of Oak
Grove's 40 residents are total-
ly opposed to the urban
sprawl and unneeded.dev,-
opment which will desecrate
the graves of hardworking
people who built this county.
It's a sad day when developers
and commissioners fight with
residents to destroy our histo-
ry. I plan to vote for commis-
sioners who listen to the peo-
ple and don't want all of


Gadsden County to look like
Midway, and who have
respect for the past and future
of this county and its people
for the next generations.

Look at history
before*you cast your
vote this election

On Tuesday we get to vote
on the half-cent sales tax
amendment. There has been
a push by some of the county
commissioners and others to
encourage you to vote for the
tax.
Whether by intent or igno-
rance, the information they
are using to convince you is
false and misleading, in my
opinion. I was a county com-
missioner for 12 years and
recently served on the citi-
zens committee for the hospi-
tal at the request of
Commissioner Doug Croley.
The plan presented to the
committee for the reopening
of the hospital was incom-
plete and flawed in many
ways.
Several expense items were
left out and key questions
could not be answered.
While a commissioner, the
hospital was always an
anchor around the board's
neck. It was an issue my
entire tenure. Three different
companies tried to make a go
of it and none were success-
ful. I do not believe its fail-
ure was entirely the fault of
those running the hospital.
I believe the circumstances
we face in the county were
the primary reason. We are
too close to the Tallahassee
hospitals. We are not rural
enough. Many of the county
residents have doctors in
Tallahassee and those
with the better paying insur-
ance routinely make the trip.
Medicine has become so spe-


cialized and all the specialists
are in Tallahassee.
Those of us opposed to the
sales tax are not opposed to
health care in the
county. We do however,
understand the ?nancial reali-.
ty of the county running the
hospital and believe govern-
ment does not need any more
money.
The information presented
by those in favor'of the tax
says that TMH will be staffing
the hospital. TMH is not put-
ting any money into this at
all. Even though the county
consultant has "guaranteed"
this plan will make money
within two years, TMH is not
willing to accept any risk.,
TMH has provided the num-
bers being used but they will
not participate.
If this is a guaranteed
money-maker, then why do
they choose not to become a
part of it? To begin with, the
projected revenue has been
grossly in?ated. Today, a
one-cent sales tax in the
county generates around $2
million. One-half of the $2
million is only $1 million.
The revenue projected to pay
for their plan is $500,000
short. This is a serious mis-
calculation. If their plan is
based on $1.5 million ip rev-
enue and they get only $1
million, then what?
A better gauge of how their
plan would work would be the
urgent care facility and not
the consultant's projected
numbers. In the less than two
years of its operation it has
lost $1.5 million. Keep in
mind this facility is only open
part-time.
Consider what a hospital
that is open full-time will
lose.
Even if they are able to o?er
more service than urgent care,
the cost to offer more will
increase. Medicaid and
Medicare, along with many
HMO's, will pay only a set
fee for a particular procedure.


It does not, matter what your
charge is, they are only going
to pay that one fee. These
fees are much lower than
what is normally charged and
they are not adjusted every
year.
Another part of their plan
has specialists from
Tallahassee renting space in
the hospital for their offices.
Do they have any commit-
ments from anybody? This
will not work either. If it
were feasible for a doctor to
do this, he or she would be
doing it now.
The reality is a specialist, as
opposed to a, primary care
doctor, will not set up a sepa-
rate location and equip it with
the expensive diagnostic
equipment unless they are
going to see a lot of new
patients. They will not do
this to see only their existing
Quincy. patients. If they are
seeing them now in one office
why would they want to have
the overhead of two offices to
see the same people? It does
not make basic business sense
to do that.
We must come to the real-
ization that Gadsden County
cannot support a hospital. We
should limit our service to an
emergency room only that is
run by TMH or someone else.
We can provide the facility
which we then lease to some-
one else. The earnings from
the hospital trust fund, along
with general revenue fund
money can pay for this.
We can have an emergency
room without the tax.
The county should not get
into operating a hospital.
This is similar to the city of
Quincy getting into the inter-
net business. It didn't work
because there were already
other companies providing
the service.
Even though they were told
it wouldn't work by a lot of
smart people, it took losing

May the be
horse win

Hope you're not tired of cartoon
columns, and if you are, ah, well,
such is life.
Got my son a DVD "Wind in the
Willows" followed by "The Legend
of Sleepy Hollow" two Disney
greats that contain the required
amount of fantasy, whimsy and com-
pletely unrealistic caricatures of
women.
Nonetheless, they are harmless exer-
cises in escapism, full of English '
countryside and idyllic villages, circa
1949 for you movie buffs but adapted
by none other that AA. Milne (of
"Winnie the Pooh" fame also a
favorite at our house) as a stage play
in 1929.
Anyhoo.
I watched this, of course, as a child
and formed rather a judgmental atti-
tude toward one Mr. Toad and an
undying empathy toward Ichabod
Crane.
Some years later, I am less inclined
to feel badly for Ichabod and find
myself celebrating Mr. Toad's joie de
vivre.
Funny how things change.
All Toad did was celebrate life in
his own unorthodox way, yes, but cel-
ebrate he did.
Ichabod, on the other hand, walked
into a sleepy little town with the atti-
tude that he was better than everyone
there.
Trust me, after 70-11 viewings, I
KNOW the story.
Ichabod wasrather a weak charac-
ter, a coward and a fop.
I took my son to DisneyWorld just
after he turned 4, it was Halloween.
Telling or not, the truth is I loved
every minute the rides, the lines
and, in particular, the replay of the
Headless Horseman's ride after the
sun went down.
Real horse. Real dark. People lined
the streets of that pretend place, and
as the peacekeepers urged me off the
curb to a safer viewing point I resis-
ted.
Miss the key performance of the
evening? Not a chance.
That horse galloped down the cob-
blestone lane set aside for pleasant
strolls, black and breathing fire, and it
was magnificent.
I haven't galloped a horse since I
became a mom, but there's not a clos-
er thing to.flying, if you ask me.
I wonder sometimes whether politi-
cal candidates feel like that.
Gadsden County is well known for
its strong response to the call to vote,
with her residents taking to heart their
studies of those running for office.
You'd be hard-pressed to find a
place where people are more passion-
ate about who holds office and the
mud slinging has reached epic propor-
tions during this week before the elec-
tion.
'It's with that in mind that I approach
this issue of outgoing state Rep.
Curtis Richardson wanting it made
known he did not endorse Ed Dixon,
as Dixon claimed in an ad that ran in
our newspaper and others. In the half-
page ad that Dixon is running this
week, he claims the Gadsden County
Times allowed an opponent of his to
change her ad in response to seeing
the ad Dixon was running that week.
For the record, she did not, in fact,
change her ad.
We do not endorse candidates nor
engage in any maneuvering that
might give one an advantage over
another.
Because we're passionate about the
electoral process as well.
But I will tell you that I am in favor
of whatever this election can do to
change the "Mr. Toad's Wild Ride"
climate that seems to exist within the
current county administration.
Just because I'm a fan of the movie
doesn't mean I want to live that way.
We've got a jail that's overcrowded
and that's a problem that is getting
worse, not better, whilst we are pay-
ing an individual $68,000 to generate
positive PR about the county. I have a
problem with that, and with the fact
that there are now four employees in
that office, at least until the public
information officer moves on to the
job he just got in a neighboring coun-
ty, is nothing short of outrageous.
The county has a bigger editorial
staff than this newspaper. Does that
strike you as excessive? It does me.
We need local-level officials who
play less with words and money and


do more than point fingers and paint
pretty pictures.
It would help, too; if their experi-
ence, talent and dedication leads them
to make wise decisions preferably,
more than 28 percent of the time.

Residents need to know the truth before the election

Citizens of Gadsden County...do your homework before making a decision to take money
from your homes. There are too many citizens of this county on low- and fixed-income levels.
for county officials to be raising taxes. Taxes are steadily increasing, but no revenue is coming
into your homes. The citizens within the city limits are trying to pay their utilities and-just mak-
ing ends meet.
(As far as I know) for more than 10 years Gadsden Community Hospital has not been equipped
to handle life-threatening issues. Citizens, wake up and stop believing everything that sounds
good. The old saying is that everything that looks good is not good for you.
Commissioners, it is time to step up and be honest with the people. There are many ways to
receive revenue without using our low-income citizens and less fortunate people.
In everything, there are procedures to be followed. The cart must sfay behind the horse. We as
Gadsden County citizens put the ruler and creator of the world as your leader. Financially sta-
ble commissioners, you ought to put some of your salary back and stop draining the well dry.
Gaining revenue without following the proper channels may create funds, but the doors of the
hospital will still be closed. Where will the money go when that happens?
Commissioners,.explain to the citizens the ins and outs of this tax, because they need to know
the truth and the agenda for reopening the hospital.

New commissioner needed in District 3

We need a change in the person that represents District 3 on the county commission. Our rep-
resentative from District 3, Commissioner Derrick Price, during the past four years has always
been the swing vote with Commissioner Ed Dixon and Commissioner Brenda Holt to increase
our property taxes, increase the number of county employees, give salary increases to certain
new and old employees, and increase the expenses of county government. Below is a list of the
five highest paid positions, not including any employees from the sheriff's department, in our
county government.

The salary of the county manager of $113,617 does not include the $7,200 year car Allowance
so he can drive around town in his own fancy car. The county still pays for the gas and main-
tenance of his car. If you compare these salaries with the median household income from the
2005 U.S. Bureau of Census of Gadsden County of $33,246 which includes the income of
everyone living in the house, you can see that these salaries are way out of line for our county.
Since 2004 the number of county employees not counting the sheriff's office has increased from
196 to 228 an increase of 16 percent.


Below is information taken from the 2004 and
2007
Property Taxes 11,696,608

As you can see the present county commissioners have hired 16 percent more employees, have
given extra large salary increases to certain employees, increased expenditures 42 percent, yet
the county population during the same period increased from 45,833 to 47,107 for only 2.9 per-
cent.
The above information came from the U.S. Census, county records and from the 2004 and
2007 external audit of Gadsden County.
We can not continue to have this excessive spending by our county commissioners. There are
two well educated young men in Gene Morgan and Randolph Bush running against our present
County Commissioner Derick Price. Morgan and Bush have pledged to stop this excessive
spending if elected. The election of a new person to represent District 3 will change the major-
ity vote from excessive spending to cutting spending. At the present time we have only
Commissioner Doug Croley and Commissioner Eugene Lamb that have tried to stop the exces-
sive spending but always lose by a three to two vote. Commissioner Price always votes with
Commissioner Holt and Commissioner Dixon to always give the majority they need to spend
our tax.dollars.
The present county commissioners have voted to increase the millege for property taxes to the
maximum allowed by law. Commissioner Price made a motion to increase the mileage even
higher but his motion failed as it would have required four of the commissioners to vote for it.
Commissioner Croley and Commissioner Lamb voted against the motion.
The voters in District 3 can make a change by voting and electing either Gene Morgan or
Randolph Bush for the commissioner seat. Either of them would do an outstanding job of rep-
resenting District 3. They would stop the excessive spending by the commissioners.
The law has ben changed so that every registered voter in District 3 can vote in the coming
election. This means all Democrats, Republicans and Independents in District 3 can vote for
District 3 county commissioner.
If you do not vote in the District 3 election, you are in effect voting to continue the excessive
spending by our present county commissioners.
Get out and vote!!

Quincy interim


manager wants


city cleaned up


By ALICE DUPONT
Times Editor

Based on the number of over-
grown lots, abandoned vehicles
and litter-strewn yards, interim
city manager Jack McLean rec-
ommended to city commission-
ers establishing an aggressive
community service project to
city commissioners.
"The program will highlight
code enforcement concerns
while aiding the public works
department and Community
Redevelopment Agency with.
effective and efficient work,
practices that will establish a
sense of community pride,"
McLean told commissioners.
McLean said he visited .a
property that was so overgrown
he saw a copperhead rat-
tlesnake in the back yard. He is
concerned, he said, that other
properties have become a haven
for snakes, rats and other things
that are a danger to people who
live near them
"We have to clean them (the
properties) up. We can't do it
alone; it will require a neigh-
borhood and the people who
live there who are willing to
make an effort," Mclean said.
If approved, the pilot program
will begin in District 2 and
expand through each district in
the city. He said District 2
needs the most attention
because there are so many older
homes.


These are the factors McLean
wants commissioners to consid-
er:
Locate all dangerous build-
ings and overgrown properties.
Request an ordinance change
(amending the appeal period to
15 days after which, if there is
. no appeal or compliance, the
city will move forward with the
judicial process).
All property on which the
city has a lien will be brought
into compliance along with
having the Community
Redevelopment Agency estab-
lish possible purchasing terms.
Establish a civil citation pro-
gram
Research hiring a magistrate
Establish neighborhood
beautification groups, and code
enforcement policy workshops
to train those groups on the
rules of compliance.
Identify dead trees within
neighborhoods.
Establish a new section
within code enforcement
addressing vegetation over
curbs.
Send out bi-weekly press
releases to inform the public of
code enforcement policies.
Make sure all city-owned
property is in compliance.
Establish a pick-up schedule
for yard trash and white goods
that constituents can follow.

Boyd discouraged nationally, encouraged locally


By ANGYE MORRISON
Times Managing Editor

Congressman Allen Boyd spoke to
Gadsden County Chamber of Commerce
members and other local community mem-
bers last Thursday as part of a chamber
speaker series. Boyd discussed what's
going on in Washington, D.C., and
addressed questions raised by those present
regarding such issues as rising fuel costs
and immigration.
Boyd also painted a fairly poor view of
America's current financial situation and its
future, and said our nation's leaders must
focus time and energy on education, trans-
portation and secunry in order to "keep
America going."
"In all these 20 years of service, I've
never seen as dysfunctional a government
as we're seeing now," he said. "We've got
lots of problems. Wouldn't it be a novel
ideal if they all sat down in a room and put
those problems on the table and worked
through them? It concerns me, the lack of
leadership at the top. But we'll keep work-
ing on it."
Boyd went on to say that he's alo disap-
pointed with "where we are" as a nation.
both financially and otherwise, saying."We
blew our economic position in the v world "
Another issue of great concern for those
attending the invitatin-on-l event was
immigrauon. Boyd was questioned regard-
ing his stance on immigration reform, and
he said he understands that immigration
greatly affects Gadsden County because of
the importance agriculture has in the area.
"1 would lke to see the Republicans and
Democrats find the common ground. There
are a lot of illegals here (m the U.S.). but
there's a reason." he said. "They're coming
here for the good jobs. What we need is
border enforcement. We need to have a
workable guest worker program that ssorks
for both the employer and the employee."
Reginald James. Gadsden County School

regarding energy costs. and asked him.
'What' do you see from v.here \ou sit?"
James expressed concern regarding the ns-
ing cost of fuel and the eher-increasing stu-
dent population that must he bused to local
schools. ,i
Boyd responded b\ saying that nationally,
it's a demand issue'and the United States
must shift its focus to developing renew-
able sources of energy.
"We're going to hal e to develop addition-
al renewable s-urces of energy. We have to
make adjustments to how %%e consume
energy," he said.
The issue of reopening Gadsden
Community Hospital was also a topic of
discussion, and Bo\d had strong words
regarding the issue. Boyd encouraged those
present to think in terms of working vyith
other communities to develop a regional
hospital, rather than a smaller local one.
"There are 27 small hospitals in Florida.


and all of them are in financial double," he
said "Elery small county can't have its
own little hospital. What's wrong with a
regional approach?"
Boyd was also asked about health care,
and he said he expected a trend toward unm-
versal health care with a new leader m the
W ute House.
"There's never been a great nation that's
uneducated and unhealthy," he said. "We
have to solve this problem."
Gadsden County Commissioner Doug
Cmley also had strong words regarding the
hospital reopening.
"If you think you can compete with a
regional hospital (Tallahassee Memorial
Hospital), you need to get real," he said.
Despite the state of the country, Boyd was
optimistic about the local area, calling
meetings hke the one last week a healthy
way to develop change and foster good
will.


Park set to open


Saturday to


much fanfare


By ALICE DUPONT
Times Editor
After a series of setbacks
including rainy weather and
equipment delivery problems,
Jackson Heights Park will offi-
cially open this Saturday at 11
a.m. The park had been expect-
ed to open in June.
"The park will be a terrific
.addition to our community.
We'd hoped to have it ready
shortly after the end of the
school year so the kids could
enjoy it all summer, but they
will still be able to spend many
happy and safe hours at the
park," said Quincy City
Commissioner Sherrie Taylor.
The park has a spray area com-
plete with jets.of water shooting
out of the backs of turtles and
the mouths of lions perched high
on poles. A shaded picnic area is
ready and new water fountains
have been installed.
A playground area has new
swings, spring toys and concrete
and mulch pads for basketball
courts and slides.
The baseball and softball areas
have new field lights, new
scoreboard, and renovated rest-
rooms. A batting cage and
dugouts are under construction.
The renovated baseball and soft-
ball areas, complete with new
fencing and dugouts, are also
ready. Reginald Cunningham,
director of the city's parks and
recreation department, said the
staff is working hard to get the
park ready for Saturday,
although some items, such as
park benches and. trashcans,
have yet to be 'delivered.
New vinyl fencing and gates
have been installed, along with
new restrooms.
Children with physical chal-
lenges will be able to enjoy the,
park because of the specially-'
equipped sidewalks, ramps and
restrooms. Cunningham said
other additions to the park
would come later in the year.
"There were some things that
could not be accommodated
with the budget we had simply
because the price of several
items we hoped to install had
gone up. Those things will be
added and will come out of the
regular parks and recreation
budget," Cunningham said.
Taylor, who represents District
2, said she is pleased with the
opening of the park and encour-
ages everyone to attend the cel-


ebration Saturday.
"I am so humbly grateful that,
the park is about to open for the
children of this community. It is
located in District 2 but all of
our children will enjoy the spray
park and the playgrounds. I have
nothing but accolades for all of
the hard work city staff put into
this project," Taylor said, adding
that Saturday's opening is only
for Phase I. Phase II, Taylor
said, will include a wading pool
and other amenities that are
more adult-oriented.
The renovations were made
possible through a $176,000
grant from the Florida
Department of Environmental
Protection's rural recreation
program.

GCSO ...Continued from Page 1


before the end of the year and
how many times have you met
with (county budget office)
staff?" Dixon asked.
Catherine Poindexter, GCSO
chief financial, said that she is in
contact with the county's budget
director Davin Suggs on a regu-
lar basis. The two, Poindexter
said, talk often.
"Does Davin have access to
your budget, the entire budget?
Did I not ask the GCSO to give
a monthly report to Davin?"
Dixon asked Poindexter.
Poindexter said the department
couldn't manage or project med-
ical costs that may vary from
day to day. She said there have
recently been two medical out-
breaks at the jail. Inmates may
need medical attention that
could cost between $50,000 and
$100,000 and the bill comes to


the GSCO for payment.
"People project all the time. I
want to see what you've done in
your budget to cutback. There
isn't an unlimited pot of money
here," Dixon said.
Dixon told Poindexter and
Wood that there wasn't anything
the county could do to help them
and suggested that the GSCO
staff meet with county manager
Marlon Brown and his staff and
go over the GCSO entire budget.
"We need to look at every-
thing, every line item," Suggs
said.
"We have two more months in
this fiscal year. At this late stage
there is nothing to cut. This is a
request from the sheriff's office
for money," said Brown.
Dixon said he wants to see the
past two years of the sheriff's
office budget to find out what it


actually spent and where.
"They have a line item (med-
ical) that they have overspent
and they want us to help them
out. Ultimately it (the jail) is the
board's responsibility. We need
a plan," Dixon said.
In other business, George
Shelton, interim director of the
Department of Children and
Families, made his first official
appearance since being named
to the position four day ago in
Gadsden County. He said Gov.
Charlie Crist asked him to con-
tinue the department's special
relationship with Gadsden
County.
"We'll put another $161,000
into the county for domestic vio-
lence. Statewide food stamp
(requests) are up 23 percent and
child abuse calls to the hot line
are up 20 percent," he said.

TRIAL ...Continued from Page 1


Gabriel James off at Baker's
home.
Two other witnesses, brother
and sister Willie Washington Jr.
and Cornethia Roberts, said they
saw Shorter and another man,
Gabriel James, walking that day
between 9 and 10 a.m. in the
vicinity where Green was killed.
The jury heard from witnesses
that rival factions, relatives of
Shorter and Green, fought the
night prior to Green's murder.
Johnson said the only person
with a motive to kill Green was
Shorter and that Shorter had
issued the threat, promising to


kill one of the four men
involved in the fight.
"This was first-degree, preme-
diated murder. He went with his
associate Gabriel James and
executed him at the back steps
of Cornethia Roberts home,"
Johnson said.
"Travis Green was shot at,
chased and finished off. Travis
Green was shot at 11 times and
hit seven times. Somebody
wanted him dead," Johnson said
in closing arguments.
Before witnesses for the
defense took the stand, Taylor
asked Judge Thomas Bateman

Last week in this column I predicted
the college football season This \week
I'll look at the pros.
-Last year I predicted that two Nes
teams would be in the Supei Bowls
They were New England and the News
York Giants The trouble was I said it
would be New England and New
Orleans. I also predicted the Patilots
would be the NFL Champions. as usual
I \as wrong.
This year maybe I can pick them a lit-
tle better.


NFL E.ST
This swill be one heck of a division.
The Gianlits hase El- Manning. who got
better in each step of the playoffs. If
his iccl\Ciels hold up the defense
offense, the defense is there to carry
the leam back to the playoffs. The)
haite much compeution in their dili-
sioii. Dallas' Ton\ Rolno and Therrell
Owens h.ae an offense of theur own..
and the Cowboys defense should be
sicngtheined w ith off-season pickups.
.Jason Campbell is a serve steady quar-


terback for Washington and.could lead
the Skins back to the playoffs.
Then there's Philadelphia. A healthy
Donos an McNabb could lead them to a
win in any of their games This is a
touoh di ision. Despite Nes\ York's
fine team, I feel Dallas will finish on
top of the bunch.
NFL NORTH
[he Bears ima he set at quartieback.
then. they nima not be. As ot no%. it
looks like K, le Orion is the man. beat-
Ing out Re\ Grosnian. Grossman has
a w:i\ of letiirning tiothe startng nod
howe\ci. If Oiton lemin.ins the man,
Chicago will win this division. The
Favire fiasco will haunt Gieen Bay,
Detriit ill still be Detroit and
Minnesota doesn't ha\e the defense to
keep the Beiars, troin taking it all.
NFL SOUTH
News Orleans did a flop last year, but
with offensive stars like Reggie Bush.
Duce NMcAllister and Drew Brees, I
find it haid not to pick them winning
this dilsilon. Tampa Bay picked tip
offense in Warrick Dunn and \ill fight
the Saints for the division crown
Atlanta. maj wind up playing a rookie,
Matt R\an. at quarterback and Caiolina
players sta$ hnut. That puts those two
teams out of it.
NFL WEST
On paper Arizona looks iuglht) good.


Matt Leinart, throwing the ball to
Anquan Boldin or Larry Fitzgerald, or
handing it off to Edgerrin James makes
for a lot of offelise. But how far will
that camr the Cardinals? They always
tind wk ays to lose; this year will be no
different. Steady, Seattle will win the
division again because San Francisco,
St Louis, and Aa izona is ready.
AFC FAST
Not e\en the Jets picking up Biei
Favre can keep the Patriots trom win-
ning the AFC East. He'll help New\
York w in some game,. but the Jet,. the
Bills or the Dolplins. won't be able to
derail Tom Brad). Rand\ Moss and
company. Gi\e the Dolphins a few\
years with Bill Parcella and things w% ill
be different.
AFC NORTH
Balttryre pljis defense, and that
defense should cars them to this divi-
sion's championship. Cincinnati could
be good but it seems like a zoo in
Bengal'land ever week. I look for
Pittsburg to ha\e another good year.
Cleveland sill hase trouble putting the
final piece together to help them get mi
the plavorts.
AFC NORTH
Peyton Manning's team still has too
much for the rest ot this di vision. The
Indianapolis Colts will once again w in
the division and head tor post-season


action. Jacksonville won enough close
games to be a wild card team last year;
I don't think their luck can hold up.
Vince Young needs one more year to
get Tennessee in the playoffs. I feel
Houston may be a surprise this year
and make post season.
AFC WEST
San Diego could be the NFL's best
tea.n They hads receivers, like Chns
Chamnbeis and Vincent Jackson They
have a fine passer in Phillip Risers,
and the\ ha\e LaDainian Tonlinson
who knows where the end zone is.
Their defense also gel. after you. They
are a shoo-in to win thpir di\ vision with
Denmer being their main competition.
Where, oh where, ha*.e the Raiders and
the Chiefs gone?
PLAYOFF PICTURE
In the NFC. division champs Dallas.
Chicago. New Orleans and Seattle will
be joined by wild carders Tampa Bay
and the New York Giants
The AFC playoff picture will have
di vision winners New England,
Indianapolis. Baltimore and San Diego
and wild cards Houston and Pittsburg
in it.
SUPER BOWL
I'm no Cowboy fan but I think they'll
play San Diego in the Big One and
ihe$'ll lose to the Chargers.

ICE IS YOURS


For 16 years I have had the privilege of serving as your commissioner. Together we have accomplished goals few thought were possible. We've paved every road in District 5
from Lake Talquin to east Quincy. Nearly 450 miles of dirt roads paved county wide. Together we have built new libraries, fire stations and Boys and Girls Clubs, moving the
County from last to first among small counties in the level of services delivered. All in an effort to improve the quality of life for all the citizens of Gadsden County.
But as always there are those who would stop at nothing to return us to the past. They seek to return us to the time when government only served the privileged few. Government
was just another opportunity for them and their chosen friend to get rich at the expense of the average taxpayer. Bloated contracts, sweetheart deals, rigged bids or as the case
for the last 20 years in Gadsden County, no bid at all.
They have shown us that they will stop at nothing to "get what they believe is rightfully theirs."
The Gadsden County Times has shown my campaign articles to my opponent before they were published in that weeks paper as well as allow my opponent to respond, not in
the next issue, but the very same issue. The same courtesy was not extended to me. Why not?
When the Family Dollar Distribution Center came calling, this same privileged few refused to answer the telephone, for six (6) months. Company executives were forced to take
hundreds bf well paying jobs next door to Jackson County.
Last week, the Havana Herald reported on my fundraising efforts but failed to inform the public that many of those same people and companies have contributed to Gene Morgan
in District 3 during this current election and Commissioner Douglas Croley two years ago during his campaign, Why didn't they make that plain?
Perhaps those privileged few are upset that candidates will no longer have to come to them begging and groveling, willing to sell their souls and their votes for funding, Ihal
not and will not kiss the ring!
August 26th will define Gadsden County's faith and her future. Will we keep moving forward toward a County that provides jobs for her workforce, healthcare for the sick and op-
portunities for young people'
I believe.we WILL! Stand with me as we continue to build a Gadsden County we can be proud of, A Gadsden County where ALL the eitiens matter, not a privileged few.

Florida Highway Patrol


launches massive "Over the


limit, Under arrest" campaign


Anyone that has been impacted
by drunk driving can tell you,
nobody wins.
From the
offender that was arrested --
amassing legal fees, court costs,
fines, jail time, and license sus-
pensions -- to the victim in a car
crash who has to have their
vehicle repaired or recover from
injuries sustained in the crash.
That is why the Florida
Highway Patrol announced it
will be joining with thousands
of other law enforcement and
highway safety agencies across
the nation from Aug. 15
throughout the Labor Day holi-
day to take part in the Drunk
driving.


Over the limit. Under arrest.
crackdown on impaired driving.
"Impaired driving is not an
accident it's an epidemic of
careless disregard for human
life," said Col. John Czeris,
director of the Florida Highway
Patrol. "In 2006, there were
over 22,000 alcohol-related
crashes in Florida, almost 1,000
less than there were in 2005. We
want to keep that downward
trend going by removing the
impaired driver before they are
involved in a crash. Our troop-
ers will be vigilant in attempting
to remove the drunk drivers
from Florida's roadways."
The Florida Highway Patrol
will be conducting sobriety


checkpoints and selective
enforcement patrols throughout
the state to identify and arrest
those who make the decision to
drive while under the influence
of alcohol.
For real-time traffic and road
condition reports, as well as
maps and other.safety tips, the
public is urged to visit the FHP
Web site at
www.flhsmv.gov/fhp/. Florida

cell www.flhsmv.gov/fhp phone
for up-to-the minute updates on
traffic congestion, road con-
struction, lane closures, severe
weather and travel delays on
Interstates and major highways.

Local scout to honor sister, grandparents by


planting 52 trees for Eagle Scout badge

By ALICE DUPONT I
Times Editor


When McLane Edwards, 14.
decided he wanted to earn his
Eagle Scout badge he didn't go
look far for a community ser ice
project. Just a block from his
Burmah Heights home sits
Hillcrest Cemetery and Edwards
decided that certain sections need
sprucing up.
Edwards' Eagle leadership seri -
'ice project is to replace dogwood
trees in a section of the cemetery
with crape myrtle trees. The first
step in getting his project off the
ground was to get approval fromn
the Quincy City Commission.
Last Tuesday night in a presen-
tation to the commission.
Edwards asked for and was grant-
ed that permission.
"The main project is to replace
many of the missing dogwood
trees in Hillcrest Cemetery. J
This project will be of no cost
to the city. I chose this project
because some of my family
members 'are buried in this
cemetery and also, as a life-
long citizen of Quincy, I
would like to improve the looks
of the cemetery. I have counted
the spaces and have come up with
approximately 52 trees. My plan
is to complete the project b\
December of this year," he told
commissioners.
Edwards said he remembers
when the cemetery was full of
dogwood trees. But after consult-
ing with nurserymen in the area,
he was informed that the reason
the dogwoods are in poor shape
and dying is that full sun is not
the best place for the trees to
thrive. He chose crape, myrtle
trees because he was advised that
they are heartier and will survive
longer..
Last week Edwards, accompa-
nied by Quincy Public Works
Coordinator Willie Earl Banks,
walked through the cemetery to
determine where the trees will be
planted. He selected a stretch on
the western end that was nearly
devoid of trees in some places,
and drew a map of the cemetery
showing the area and the trees he
wants to replace and showed it to
commissioners.
Before he can move forward
with the project he must get the
approval from the Suwannee
River Area Scouts Council. He is
required to present detailed note-
books to the council of his plans.
"They have to contain every-
thing about the.project. I have to
say what the project will cost,
who I will partner with, where
they will be planted, what materi-
als I will use, including what size
auger I will use to dig the holes,"
Edwards said.
His plan is to request tree dona-
tions from some of the nurseries
in the area and enlist the man-
power of friends and family to get
the job completed.
"It would be a one-day project,
from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. I want to do
it in October," he said.
Once the project has been com-
pleted, Edwards will present the
council with another notebook,
complete with before and after
pictures, as well as pictures from
the project on the actual workday.
When all of the paperwork is
.done to the satisfaction of the
council, Edwards hopes to have
earned his Eagle Scout badge.
"I want to make it beautiful
because I have a sister and my
grandparents buried there. My


N "
'I1


$


parents will be buried
there and I will be
buried there, too," said
Edwards, who is a stu-
dent at Robert F.
Munroe Day School.
For the past four
years, he has been a
member of Troop 109
in Tallahassee, and says
he enjoys scouting. He
has earned most of the
badges required and
only has three more to
earn before he will have
collected all of the ones
offered by his troop.
If all goes the way
Edwards and his par-
ents, Larry and
Michelle, expect, the
scout will receive his
Eagle badge during the
Scout Court of Honor in
December.
"We're very proud of
him and this project,"
said the beaming par-
.ents.

B 10 The Gadsden County Times August 21, 2008

Spirit of school event not tempered by weather
By ALICE DUPONT .
Times Editor _, .. ____.._a _m_


Rain and wind didn't blow out
the Back to School Blow Out
last Saturday at Carter-
Parramore Academy, but the
event was cut a few hours short
when the rain looked as if it
would last throughout the day.
One parent said she decided to
attend the blowout after hearing
96.1 radio personality Joe
Bullard telling people about the
event.
East Gadsden High School
Principal Rosalyn Smith and
assistant principal Diane
Viegbese took the opportunity
to inform parents and students
of the new programs they plan
to offer.
"We been explaining our new
academic program called
Advancement Via Individual
Determination. The program
places academically. average
achieving students in advanced
classes. The program is
designed for all students, but
targets those with a grade point
average from 2.5 to 3.5 and
who .demonstrate special cir-
cumstances or need. It is
offered as an elective course,"
Smith said.
She said parents and students
appeared excited about the new
programs.
While high school students
are not required to wear uni-
forms, Smith and Viegbesie are
pushing what they are calling
optional student dress choices.
A flier on suggested attire was
given to all parents and students
who visited the booth.
'Juiite"bhind the James A.
Shanks Middle School booth,
Don White and Ron Peterson,
members of Alpha Phi Alpha
Fraternity, .explained that they,
have adopted Carter-Parramore
Academy for the school year.
"Our members will provide
mentoring, homework assis-
tance, character building and
other resources such as a speak-
ers bjireau for the students.
We've had quite a bit of actwii-
ty,'_White said.,

and Driona Robinson were among many volunteers who make the
back to school block party in Shaw's Quarters a success. Photo by

The day's showers eventually
took a toll on attendees and par-
ticipants, and the event closed.
"We were actually supposed
to be here, until 2 p.m. but we're
shutting down now," said
organizer Audrey Lewis Potter
around noon. Lewis-Potter said
more than 800 parents and stu-
dents braved the bad weather.
In addition to the information
and referrals, 600 students
received backpacks with school
supplies. Refreshments includ-
ed hot dogs, sausage, chips,
fried fish, sno-cones, soft
drinks and more.
"This was supposed to be a
one-stop shop for parents and
students and it has turned out
well," Lewis-Potter said.
The Gadsden County Health
Department helped out by pro-
viding last minutes immuniza-
tions, free of charge.
Five-year-old Tunajah
Dismuke only shed a few tears
as she braved four immuniza-
tions to get her blue card prov-
ing that she was ready for
school Monday.
"She was so brave. She shed
one little tear. I promised her
that we'd would go for pizza as
soon as we finished," said her
aunt, Thawanda McBride.
The new Sawdust Park was
not dedicated last weekend due
to rain, but a ceremony will be
held Saturday at 11 a.m., said


Charles Chapman, the county's
recreation director.
"This park actually grew out
of a tragedy in the community.
After the death of Travis Green,
some of us got together because
we felt we had to so something
to save our children," said
Cornethia Roberts, in whose
yard Green was killed.
The sun peeked out around 4
p.m., just in time for hundreds
to show up at Shaw Quarters
Park for the annual block party.
A team of volunteers rushed to
fill 250 backpacks with paper,
pencils, glue, crayons and other
school supplies. The founders
of the non-profit organization
GOOD Kids, Markee and
Farrah Rivers, along with mem-
bers of the Shaw Quarters
Community, have sponsored
the annual event for the three
years.
Kids earned prizes from ten-
nis shoes to video games by
correctly answering questions
on current events asked by DJ
Dap from Blazin 102.3 radio
station. While the kids
answered questions, Reggie
Lockwood grilled chicken and
hot dogs for the refreshments.
"We want them to get off to a
good start. That's why all of
these people are out here volun-
teering their time and energy to
help these kids," Markee Rivers
said.
