Taxes to


go up; first

time in 20


years

By ALICE DUPONT
Times Editor

In an effort to gets its financial ship
upright, the Quincy City Commission
Tuesday night, by a 5-0 vote, decided to
raise property taxes and electric rates for
both commercial and residential cus-
tomers.
In order to make it easier on the residents,
the property tax will be implemented in
two steps over a over a two-year period to
equal a direct tax of 4.5269 mils. The city
has not had an increase in property taxes in
20 years and Jack McLean, interim city
manager, said the funds are needed to oper-
ate city government. The millage increase
will add $400,000 annually to the general
fund.
McLean said when the property taxes
were last raised the village rate was 2.75,
where it remained until Tuesday.
Commissioners also voted to raise elec-
tric rates for commercial and residential
customers. Several local business people
attended the meeting and explained that
rising costs in other areas are adding to
their bottom line. The added expense of
higher electric rates at this time would be
an economic hardship.
"This has been difficult for everyone,"
McLean told the commercial customers,
which included BASF, The Printing House
and Quincy Joist.
He said the city has tightened. i. belt by
-eliminating positions, consolidating
departments and generally restructuring
the way the day-to-day business is con-
ducted.
Ann Sherman, customer service director,
said that Quincy simply has not kept up
with the pace of rising electric cost over the
past 10 years. While other municipalities
have raised their rates 47 percent, Quincy
has only raised rates 24 percent while cQsts
have steadily gone up. Still, Quincy's rates
are the lowest in the county.
Mike Wade, utilities director, said that
while the average cost for more than 50
percent of the residential customers will be
less than $6 per month and the average
commercial rate will be about 10 percent
higher per month, it is still lower than what
Talquin Electric charges currently.
"The last rate adjustment was in 1995,"
Wade said.
Commissioner Keith Dowdell asked the
businesses to try top understand the city's
current struggles.
"Let's be proactive. We're all in this
together and let's work together. We've
worked hard on this (budget) for the past
three months and we've made compr6mis-
es. It hasn't been easy for any of us," he
said.
He asked the business owners to bring
their ideas too commission meeting so that
the residents, businesses and government
would work together to determine the
future of the city's growth.

Counterfeit items pulled from


shelves; store owners warned


By ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

Gadsden County Sheriff's Office
deputies raided three Quincy establish-
ments Sept. 3 and confiscated thousands
of dollars worth of counterfeit clothing,
tennis, shoes, CDs, DVDs,. liquor and
drug paraphemali :
"We took merch.indise
from Quick Stop BP gas :I- _
tion, TNT Mart. both on
West Jeffei'son Street. and
the Empire clothing ,tore in
the Piggy Wigglx Plazai on
Ben Bostick Road The nman
at TNT Mart was putting up
his grand opening sign when __
we got there," said Lt. Jimr
Corder of the Gadsden
County Sheriff's Office IP
Narcotics and Vice Unit.
The three businesses raided
are not the only ones that
might be selling unautho- -
rized merchandise and
Corder said owners of other
stores will be contacted later
in the week and asked to stop selling the
merchandise.
None of the store owners were arrested
but -charges are pending, according to
Corder. The reason for the raids is that
Nike, whose products are more fre-
quently bootlegged, wants the items off


the street.
"First these knock-offs are cutting into
their profits and these products are so
inferior. They go to Atlanta.or Tampa
and buy these tennis shoes for about $40
each and they come back and sell them
for about $70. But when people get them
home they may not be able to lace them


up. Internationally this is a multi-billion
dollar industry, so you can imagine what
they're losing with knock-offs every-
where," Corder said. "Most of the mer-
chants in Gadsden County are hard-
working people who want to do the right
thing. You have a few who come in here


and tarnish the reputation of the majori-
ty.
He said customers who have purchased
the fake Nikes can go to the company's
Web site and download information on
sending back the shoes and obtain a
coupon good toward a legitimate pair of
tennis shoes. The company, Corder said,
has indicated they will work with
busine',,e, if they wish to sell
legitimate Nike products.
The miid, ended a two-week
in\estiatilon following requests
b. Nike International to investi-
g.ie complaints.
"'\e ',.eie called by Nike after
some residents complained about
the quality of the products they
had purchased," Corder said.
Undercover agents went into the
stores and made buys .in recent
weeks. It was during these buys
that law enforcement discovered
no taxes were being charged on
the merchandise and receipts were
o not given unless the customer
requested them.
"All three businesses were given
a notice to cease and if another viola-
tions occur, they'll face stiffer charges.
We will also notify the Internal Revenue
Service, Nike and the Immigration'
Service," Corder said.
The Florida Department of Law
Enforcement assisted the GCSO.


Dixon files complaint on election results


By ALICE DUPONT
Times Editor

Gadsden County District 5 County
Commissioner Ed Dixon, who was defeated
in his bid for another term in the recent Aug.
26 election by challenger Sherrie Taylor, has
contested the election results. Dixon filed the
required documents in Gadsden County
Circuit Court at 4:45 p.m. Monday.
"I ran a clean campaign. Both my support-
ers and I conducted ourselves in accordance
with the rules of campaigning. We worked
hard and the people of this wonderful district
asked for and got a change. This is just
another attempt to gridlock our government
once again," Taylor said.
But according to Florida Statute 102.168,
anyone wishing to contest election results
must do so "within 10 days after midnight of
the date the last board responsible for certify-
ing the results officially certifies the results of
the election being contested."
Results from the Aug. 26 election were cer-
tified by the canvassing board Aug. 28.


In a handwritten, one-page
document, Dixon wrote,
"Dear Judge Parsons, chair-
man, Gadsden County
Canvassing Board: I would
like to contest the election
for County Commission
District 5 in Gadsden
County due to FS, 102-168
(3) (d), FS 104.045,
FS 104.061, and
FS104.0615; also FS
104.0616."


Dixon


Dixon said he received calls from support-
ers who asked them to preserve their rights.
"Otherwise I have no comment," Dixon
said.
The statutes reference the contestant's right
to the office for which he/she is running,
bribery of an elector or canvassing board
member, vote selling, voting fraud, attempt-
ing to "buy" votes, voter intimidation and/or
suppression, use of threats or force against
voters, refraining fiom voting or registering
to vote in an attempt to sway the outcome of


Taylor


a vote, use of false information, challenge of
an individual's right to vote and attempting
to induce a person from acting as an author-
ized election official or poll watcher.
. The statutes also reference destruction,
mutilation or defacing of a voter registration
formnn or ballot and delaying the delivery of a
voter registration form or absentee ballot.
Any of these acts, if proven, is considered
to be a felony in the third degree.
The complaint is currently under investi-
gation.


Quincy


hit with


tax bill


City has to pay

back taxes to the

tune of over

$379,000
By ALICE DUPONT
Times Editor

Quincy city commissioners
voted last week to pay the state
of Florida $28,500 per month
until $379,465.68 in back taxes
is repaid.
In June, the city received a tax
assessment notice from the
Florida Department of Revenue
that stated the city owed
$757,809.68, including interest
and penalties, for the tax period.
of July 1, 2003 through June 30,
2006. The Florida Department
of Revenue also notified the city
in June that it owed approxi-
mately $100,000 in sales and
gross taxes. But the city chal-
lenged the assessment because it
was believed that the city had
originally overpaid the taxes
and therefore owed nothing.
That's when former city man-
ager Bill Bogan asked the
FDOR to conduct an audit of its
books to determine the extent of
the overpayment. At the end of
the audit, the department dis-
covered that the city actually
owed $757,809.68 to the state,
instead of the $100,000 as DOR
officials had originally thought.
However, the department later
compromised and adjusted the



Suggs

announces

resignation

By ALICE DUPONT
Times Editor

Davin Suggs, Gadsden County
director of management and
budget, has resigned.
Suggs' last day on the job is
Sept. 16. After nearly four years
he said it was "time to go."
Suggs has taken a job with the
Florida Association of Counties
as a lobbyist and legislative ana-
lyst. His job will be to review all
legislation and determine the fis-
cal impact on counties.
"I don't look at it as leaving
Gadsden County. I see it a picking
up 66 other counties. I have
grown to love Gadsden County.
The last three years have been
special to me in a good way,"
Suggs said.
"It's one of those things where
you don't see his work out front
but it supported all the other work
that gets done. His work provided
clarity and he brought integrity to
the job. We always knew, to the
penny, where the money was and
therefore could make better deci-
sions. We knew years ago that a
tight ship was coming and we
made decisions with great fore-
sight instead of hindsight. In my
16 years on the board (of county
commissioners) its never been
done like that," said county com-
mission chairman Ed Dixon.
"I think it's a good opportunity
for Davin but a loss for Gadsden
County. I've always said we have
such talent here that they are
being recruited and scooped up
when people see the caliber of
work they have done here," said
County Manager Marion Brown.

2 The Gadsden County Times September 11, 2008


Are you prepared for the


worst of Mother Nature?


By ALICE DUPONT
Times Editor

There are nearly 6,000 senior
citizens who live in Gadsden
County.
September is the most active
month during hurricane season
but stones have been known to
strike Gadsden County as late as
November. In 1985 Hurricane
Kate, a Category 2 hurricane,
came right across the
county leaving some
people without
power for at least a
week. Thousands of
dollars in damage
and fallen trees were
the rule rather than
the exception.
Home Instead A
Senior Care, which
serves Gadsden A
County, has released
10 tips for helping
seniors prepare for
disaster.
1.Tune in. Stay
abreast of what is going on in
the county through local radio
and television. It is best to own a
battery operated weather radio.
Know where to get information
during an emergency. Seniors
who are hearing or vision
impaired should have the proper
tools to be notified during a dis-
aster.
2.Take stock. Decide what you
can and cannot do during a nat-
ural disaster. Make a list of what
would be your needs if a disaster
occurred. For example, wheel-
chair bound seniors can go to
shelter. Determine whom to
contact if transportation is not
readily available.
3. To go or to stay? When
deciding to evacuate, seniors
should go sooner rather than
later. By waiting to long, you
may be unable to leave if assis-
tance from others is required.
Notify friends, relatives, neigh-
bors and caregivers if you are
going to shelter.


4. Make a plan. Develop a plan;
with your family.
5. Make sure you know miore
than one way out. If you decide
to stay at home have at least two
escape routes out of the home in
case of fire or the need to escape
quickly.
6.Meet up. Designate a place
to meet other relatives and fam-
ily members or other support
network people outside the


house as well as a second loca-
tion outside the neighborhood,
such as a school or church.
Practice the plan at least twice a
year. This is important in case
you are separated.
Select a long distance family
member of friend to call if you
must be evacuated. Many fami-
lies were displaced when they
were evacuated to different
cities and even states following
Hurricane Katrina.
7. Get up and go kit. Have an
easy to carry back pack includ-
ing three days of non-perishable
food and water with an addition-
al four days of readily accessible
food and water at home. Have at
least one gallon of water on
hand for each day. Bottled water
may be easier to store and carry,
and you should refresh and
replace supplies at least twice
per year.
8. Pack extras and make
copies. Have at least a month's
supply of medication on hand at


all times.
Make sure important docu-
illents arc in waterproof proltec-
lor including copies of prescrip-
tions, car title registration and
driver's license, insurance docu-
ments and bank account num-
bers and a spare checkbook.
Also have extra eyeglasses and
hearing aid batteries. Label all-
important equipment in case
they are lost.
9. Contact list.
Complete a contact
list and include
people on your sen-
ior support network
as well as doctors
and other important
health care profes-
i" sionals.
10. Professional
help. Call a profes-
sional caregiver if
k you or a loved one
S needs extra help.
Emergency man-
agement director
Shawn Wood


advises that people should be
prepared to remain on their own
for at least three days after a
storm.
I "The truth of the matter is that
(Tropical Storm) Fay was a
good test for us. But people have
to realize that water and food
will not be coming here so they
need to look out for them-
selves." he said. Wood said in
. the past his department has done
its best to help people, but in a
major storm, those unprepared
people might have had to wait
up to a week before help
arrived.Water and Meals Ready
to Eat were brought in by truck
from a Federal Emergency
Management Agency ware-
house in Orlando Sunday and
Monday for 3,000.
However, if the Ochlockonee
River had risen a few more feet.
those trucks would not have
been able to access Gadsden
County until the water went
down to an accepable level.


For the second consecu-
tive year Quincy City
Commissioner Finley
Cook treated city
employees to a fish fry.
The near served from
noon' to 1 p.m. at the
park adjacent to city hall
consisted of fried fish,
grits, cole slaw, french
fries, pickles and iced
tea. Shown here is build-
ing inspector Cory
Wilhoit, getting some
cole slaw. Cook,'an avid
fisherman, said he start-
ed the event to show his
appreciation for the con-
, tributions city employees
make throughout the
year. Photo by Alice Dupont

Taxes are due on the following:
* Tax collected was not proper-
ly remitted.
* Under collecting taxes
because of incorrect rate.
* Electric sales exempted in
error.
* Gas sales exempted in error.
* Streetlight rentals exempted
in error.
* Gross receipt tax on gas not
collected.
* Sales tax on pool admission
fee not collected.
* Sales tax on computers was
not remitted.


* Sales tax on rental property
was not collected.

mission/distribution expansion
(Magnolia Forest and Arbor
Crest).
* Taxes due on telecommuni-
cations machinery and equip-
ment.
* Taxes due on telecommuni-
cations improvements other than
building.
According to Jack McLean,
interim city manager, there are
several factors that contributed
to the city's tax liability.
First, an employee created an


Excel spreadsheet to calculate
the sales tax due and entered a
formula to deduct tax collected
from some commercial electric
customers for electricity and
streetlight rental rather than
including the amount.
Secondly, there was a failure to
collect on taxable transactions.
And finally, there was a failure to
send the taxes collected to the
proper agency.
"The finance department and
customer service have the
responsibility to put in place sys-
tems to address the issue by
Sept. 30," McLean said.


Florida growers asked to stand up and make their voices heard


The Florida Farm Bureau
Federation is urging Florida
growers to submit comments
to the Environmental
Protection Agency requesting
the agency re-evaluate its
proposed re-registration eligi-
bility. decisions for several
important soil fumigants.
The EPA has extended the
comment period through Oct.
30. American Farm Bureau
was successful in calling on


the agency to provide
increased time for farmers to
assess the impact of the new
rules.
The rule on soil fumigants
pertains to such pesticides as
Chloropicrin, Dazomet,
metam sodium/potassium and
methyl bromide.
Without the use of these
fumigants, yields would be
reduced, the labor needed
would be increased and grow-


er profitability would be
decreased.
Nationwide, the production
of those food crops is expect-
ed to be valued at more than
$40 billion in 2008. This will
amount to 22 percent of the
value of crops grown this
year.
Additional information
about the rule is posted on the
agency's Web site at
http://www.epa.gov.

Since the events of Sept. 11,
2_001 at the World Trade Center
and the Pentagon, the United
States vowed to never be caught
off guard again. The ggederal
government passed the
Homeland Security Act in 2002.
In addition, Congress also creat-
ed the Department of Homeland
Security.
The Homeland Security Act
was drawn up to address the
drawn up to address the nation's
concerns after the terrorist
attacks. The goal of the act was
to centralize intelligence and
law enforcement agencies and
their functions and to protect the
country against and respond to
the threat of terror.
But what most people see of
homeland security is limited to
the mandatory two hours arrival
before departure at airports and
the inconvenience of nearly dis-
robing before being allowed to
get on an airplane.
But Homeland Security is
much more than that and last
week, County Commissioner
Eugene Lamb Jr. completed a


three-day training
course at the Center
for Domestic
Preparedness at Ft.
McClellan in
. Anniston, Ala.
"It was very good.
I completed the pan-
demic influenza
planning and pre-
paredness course.
The training made
me appreciate EMS
and the Center for
D o m e s t i c
Preparedness even
more," Lamb said.
Dr. Henry Grant,
director of the
Gadsden County
Extension Office,
also recently com-
pleted first responder'
training in agricultural emer-
gency response training at the
Ft. McClellan facility.
"One of the major areas of
concern is agri-terrorism. The
week-long training taught things
such as safety, screening and
medical. There was'a very help-
ful session on foreign animal
diseases," Grant said.
The training for Lamb, Grant


Lamb

and others from the county, who
attended was paid for by federal
funds. The training is offered to
emergency responders for 10
disciplines: emergency manage-
ment, emergency medical serv-
ices, fire service, governmental
administration, hazardous mate-
rials, health care,. law enforce-
ment, public health, public safe-
ty communications and public
works.

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


By Alice DuPont, Editor


Contemplation


Deadbeat parents unbelievable


When I periodically attend child support
court the level of apparent disdain that some
men have for the women they were with in
the past and the children these women gave
birth to never ceases to amaze me. Such was
the case last Thursday aftemoon.
One man, who was more than $58,000
behind in support payments, had so many
excuses he became confused just telling
Judge Kathy Gamer why he had not paid a
penny in more than 13 years. First, he said he
was blind and picked up cans along the road
to pay for food and shelter for himself.
Then, when he let it slip that he also had a
lawn service, he found that he was only blind
in one eye. And it wasn't "really a lawn serv-
ice," only a few friends allowed him to cut
their grass to help him with his finances.
When that didn't fly, he informed the judge
that he recently had "16 inches of my gut"
removed and started to raise his shirt to show
the scar as evidence of his surgery.
When asked how much he could pay imme-
diately toward the pat due amount, he reluc-
tantly said he could pay $100. That wasn't
enough and the judge told the man he would
go to jail for 90 days or pay $1,500.
As bailiffs escorted the man out of court I
noticed him pass what looked like paper to
the man who drove him to Gadsden County
for the hearing. A few minutes later I found
out that the man paid $700 when he arrived at
the jail and another $600 minutes later. The
man didn't spend any time in jail.
An equally troubling case followed that one.
This time, the Lakeland man owed
$22,527.34. He did make two payments in
2008, which totaled $379.08.
The man said he was laid off his job and
had been looking for work without success.
He said he has depended on the kindness of
his "girl" and his brother, to live day to day.
He said he has other children in Lakeland and
provides for them. There are his exact words
and I'm not kidding.
"When my other kids need something, I
take hot dogs and milk out of the refrigerator

and take over to their mother's house," he
said. Somehow, and I may be wrong about
this, I've never thought that hot dogs and milk
on an irregular basis equates taking care of
children.
Ironically, the man never applied for unem-
ployment until he found he had a pending
contempt case. You see, if he had filed for
unemployment, child support payments
would have been taken out of that check
before he received the payment.
The judge asked if he would be able to
make a payment immediately. He offered the
court $40. The $40 was all he had because he
had borrowed money to come to Quincy. He
asked the judge how he'd get home if he
relinquished that $40..
The judge solved his problem and he didn't
have to worry about getting back to Lakeland.
He's still in Quincy in the county jail.
Then there are some people who just don't
get it. Like the couple who has been living
together for five years and she's been getting
state assistance by telling officials that she
doesn't know the location of the father. Judge
Gamer informed the couple that they were
free to go. They seemed happy until a woman
with them explained that they were only free
to go because their case was out of the hands
of the court and into the hands of the Florida
Department of Law Enforcement. Somebody
may be going to jail for welfare fiaud in the
very near future.
But men aren't the only deadbeats.
One woman owes $15,489.91 to her sister.
She said she seldom hears from her sister and
that knows that she works at hotels in the
area. However, she never stays employed
long enough for the state to find her and begin
taking support payments from the paycheck.
"She told me that she wasn't going to work
because she wasn't going to have child sup-
port coming out of her check," the woman
said. She has reared her sister's child since the
baby was 3 days old.
Is there any wonder why some of our chil-
dren have so many problems?


You are not going to
believe this one! My son has
a car that tells him where he
is and where he is going! He
punched in Unicoi State Park
and a voice Jess referred to
as "Marlene" told him to
turn right on US 400 and
continue 6 miles. I almost
jumped over into the back
seat!
We got 6 miles up the road
and Marlene, clear as a bell,
spoke up and said turn
left on State Road 52.
Jess politely went into
an elementary discourse
on GPS, satellite loca-
tion and the modern
advances made in
vehicular technolo-
gy...... I was leaning
forward trying to catch
Marlene's accent and W
thinking about Phyllis B
Millgren.
Phyllis lived over in
Lexington. It was 45
miles from my
house ......and this was t
back when a long trip Ie
was the 4 miles or so
out the Gleason Highway
to KECO Mills. I met Phyllis
at a baseball game. She
seemed pretty nice.
And, as is always the case,
she was a heap better look-
ing than the "local" girls. We
hung around the concession
stand and chatted until
Coach King herded us back
on the bus. "Come to see me
sometime" was the last thing
she said as I waved goodbye.
I figured it was true love. I
had just turned 16. The only
question I missed on my dri-
ver's test was the one about
not having to stop for the
school bus on a four-lane
road....o'r maybe you did
have to stop. I'm still con-
fused about that one.... But 1
digress. I was old enough to
drive. It was the wonderful'
summer of 1963. The Cuban
missile crisis was over.
President Kennedy had the
respect of the world. Peter,
Paul and Mary were singing
songs that sounded light and
folksy but often had deeper
meaning.
And that group from


We all have days when our brains turn to
mush and we just can't function. When I
have those kind of days, I tend to go online
and look at funny videos posted on
youtube.com or funnyordie.com. Some of
them are downright hysterical; some are
just stupid. But by the time I'm finished
viewing a couple of them, my mood has
changed and I can move on in a productive
manner.
YoU might say it's a kind of pressure
valve for me. When I need to let the
"steam" go, this is my release. After all,
laughter is the best medicine.
So the other day, as I was letting off some
steam and watching some mindless stuff, it
dawned on me that our next issue would be
dated Sept. 11 and all of those horrible
images from that day seven years ago
came back to me. I don't know why my
brain chose that moment to draw that real-
ization to the surface, but it did.
We all have memories of that day. It's
kind of like previous generations who can
remember where they were when John F.
Kennedy was shot or, more recently, what
they were doing when they heard the space
shuttle blew up. I'm no different.
At the time. I was managing editor of a
bi-weekly paper, and that week's
Wednesday edition was already on the
press. When I heard the news of what had
just happened at the World Trade Center, I
ran back to the press and hit the stop but-
ton. It's the only time in my career I've
actually been able to yell, "Stop the press!"
Quite frankly, that day is a bit of a blur to
me. I immediately went into reporter
mode, and began looking for a local angle
on the story. We went with a man-on-the-
street piece, getting people's reactions to
the news.
In the weeks that followed, we talked
with local people who knew someone who
lived in New York or worked at the WTC.
The stories they told were compelling and
heart-wrenching. I even found a firefighter


England with the bug-sound-
ing name had just started
getting a little air play in
America.
It was time for me to
spread my wings. Our car
was a 1960 Chevrolet. And I
mean "our" car. It was the
only vehicle we owned.
Daddy had first dibs. Mother
used it for her weekly trip t6
Woodrow Kennon's store.
Leon was older and "more


that thin, double-buckle belt
from Leon and tried to comb
my rather short hair into a
duck tail. I was shooting for
the Elvis-Dean-Brando look.
Leon allowed I was leaning
more toward one of the guys
in the Kingston Trio.
I stopped by Tommie Hill's
DX station and put in $2
worth of regular. I cruised
through the intersection out
by Eddie Carden's house and


unker down

with

Kes


responsible." Plus, he could
sweet talk Mom into letting
him use it anytime.
I was way down on the list.
And Dad was not very big on
joy-riding. His idea of a fun
evening was for everyone to
gather around on the porch
and outline the work details
for the next day.
I begged Mom for a week. I
was old enough to drive to
Lexington. It was just down
Highway 22 on the other
side of Huntingdon. "What
could possibly go wrong?"
"Are you saying you don't
trust me?" "Mr. Wiggleton
lets Buddy drive to
Trezevant all the time."
"God will watch over me."
"You love Leon more than
you do me!" I was pulling
out all the stops.
She finally relented. 1
called Phyllis. She acted like
she was pleased and agreed
to a date. I wrote down 237
West Brookins Drive and
started working on the crease
in my Levi 501s. I wore my
new madras shirt, borrowed


headed southeast on
Highway 22. I flipped the
channels on the radio until I
found Bo Didley bending
those strings on "Bo Didley
is a gunslinger." I had one
hand on the wheel, my left
elbow propped on the win-
dow opening and both shoul-
ders reared back. Life was
good.
I was in Huntingdon in 15
minutes. I'd been through
the place a hundred times.
I'd just never driven through
it! Getting around the square
was a little tricky. I wasn't
sure who had the right of
way. That wasn't in the man-
ual!
I turned by the movie the-
atre, thought about buzzing
the Dairy Bar, started
singing along with Chuck
Berry and figured I'd
impress Phyllis by being a
few minutes early.
It was only 8 miles or so to
Clarksburg; and another 15
to Phyllis' house. I was
working on my opening line
when I saw the Leach city


who was from the area who had moved to
New York and was working there. He took
the time to give me a great interview,
despite working hours on end at Ground
Zero.
I found myself glued to the television
each day, following the coverage. I also
felt pride as I watched my fellow
Americans work to find those lost in the
rubble of those buildings. I was enormous-
ly proud of those who lined the streets,
cheering as firefighters and other emer-
gency personnel entered and exited Ground
Zero.
In fact, during the days that followed the
terrorist attacks, I saw an uprising of
American pride unlike anything I'd ever
seen in my lifetime. I was glad to see it,
but at the same time, I wondered, where
was all this pride before the attacks?
And now, here we are, seven years after
the attacks and it seems that the red, white
and blue swell has diminished somewhat.
This makes me sad and angry. It shouldn't,
take something like terrorist attacks to
unite our nation.
I have always believed that there is a sil-
ver lining in every cloud; that there's
always an up side to every situation. In the
days that followed the attacks, the up side
was that swell of American pride.
So today, as we remember the events of
Sept. 11, 2001, it is my hope that the up
side will be a renewed sense of pride in not
only our country, but in the American peo-
ple. We survived a horrible event, and
came together to send a strong message to
any who would come against us. That mes-
sage, to quote MC Hammer, is, "Can't
touch this."
So today, join me in taking a moment to
remember those we lost on Sept. 11 and
the heroes who gave so much in the days
after the attacks. Join me in feeling that
swell of pride once again. This is our
strength as a country. And no one. terrorist
or otherwise, can touch this.


limit sign. Leach? That was-
n't on the road to Lexington.
Had they put a new town in
the way? I started looking
for a road sign. Was I still on
22? When I saw the lights of
Lavinia I knew something
was dreadfully wrong! I was
on County Road 104 West.
Where was 22? How could
they change roads like that?
I was way too cool to stop
and ask. I had played base-
ball in Lavinia. I just
couldn't remember how
. we got there. The next
road sign said
McLemoresville 9
t miles. That was the
opposite direction from
Lexington! I turned
around and headed back
^.. the way I came. I fig-
ured Lexington had to
be off to my right so I
took the next turn in
that direction. In about
15 minutes I wheeled
into Westpoint. I had
somehow crossed 22
without seeing it. The
sign said SR 424.
You've got to be kidding
me! I'm 45 minutes
late......and I'don't think I'm
even close to Lexington!
I turned down the Ball
Creek Access Road and fol-
lowed it until the black top
ended. You know, Pam
Collins and Jane Hill and
Ruth Ann Wiley are not all
that bad looking.
Maybe I ought to be shop-
ping at home! This is crazy!
And I'm now an hour and a
half late. I backtracked about
twice more and found myself
driving up on the square in
downtown Huntingdon. It
was almost 11 p.m. I was
supposed to be home by
now! 1 had both hands on the
wheel and was sweating
when I pulled into the yard.
Leon was standing on the
porch. "Did you have any
trouble finding Brookins
Drive?"
"Jess," I propelled myself
back to the present. "You'd
better be thankful we didn't
have this GPS stuff back in
my day. Your mother might
be named Phyllis."

It just...


happened
By Shoim
Randles
It just hap-
pened, you
know? One
of those
serendipitous
coincidences that occur when
planets line up or you foolishly
store oily rags together.
It just ... happened.
Ardis Richardson was looking
through the Soup 'R Market for
an egg beater for her mom. Not
the electric kind. The turn-the-
handle kind. She picked one up
and tried it out, causing the
friendly little metallic whir that
good egg beaters make.
What was serendipitous, how-
ever, was Anita Campbell not 6
feet away in the next row
thumping pumpkins. As Anita
thumped and Ardis whirred,
they got in time with each other
and Sarah McKinley was
checking out kitchen timers and
gave one a friendly ding.
This got the thumper and
whirrer going even more enthu-
siastically and caused the mar-
ket's owner, Annette George, to
walk over to the three percus-
sionists, grin and pick up a
brand-new stainless steel fun-
nel, purse her lips and begin to
blow a blues tune on it. It was
OK, since she owned the store.
Annette, it turns out, played
trombone back in high school.
While she was bluesing and
Anita was thumping and Sarah
was dinging and Ardis was
whirring, a kind of blissful har-
mony began and filled the veg-
etable aisle with music.
When they finally stopped.
between gales of laughter
Annette said she could put a
regular trumpet mouthpiece in
the funnel and get a better tone.
Anita said not to say anything
to her husband, Dud, as he
thought his accordion playing
was the only music in the fami-
ly.
They agreed to get together
each Wednesday afternoon and
practice until they got good
enough for a concert.
But they never did.
Serendipity just happens ... in
its own good time.

Clubs launch new Web site


Boys & Girls
In response (o a survey of its
Web site users, the 1Boys & Girls
Clubs of he Big Btend formed a
strategic partnership with
Tallahassee-based design firm,
Taproot Creative, to redevelop
the site formerly known as
www.bgebb.org. Visitors can
now find the new and improved
site at
www.ThePositivePlaceForKids.
org.
"We learned that a vast majori-
ty of our Web site visitors were
not happy with the quality and
organization of information on
our previous site," said Buddy.
Streit, president and CEO of the
Boys & Girls Clubs of the Big
Bend. "Since most of our online
visitors are staff and parents of
prospective Club members, that
was a problem. These audiences
in particular need to have access
to the most current and accurate
information available to reduce
confusion, frustration and
unnecessary phone calls and vis-
its to our administrative offices."
New features added in
response to survey findings
include frequently asked ques-
tions for parents and volunteers,
downloadable volunteer, mem-


bership and job applications,
convenient options for making
online donations, information
about planned giving, descrip-
lions of upcoming events, staff
biographies, a list of community
partners and major donors,
member stories, testimonials, a
photo gallery, resources for par-
ents and fun links for kids.
"Knowing the history of the
Boys & Girls Clubs and the good
work they do in our community,
we were thrilled to assist them
with the Web site redesign," said
Sean Doughtie, president of
Taproot Creative. "After analyz-
ing their previous site and dis-
cussing their needs, we were
able to give them something that
serves as an engaging two-way
communication vehicle and
makes visitors feel more con-
nected to the organization. The
look and feel of the Web site and
the new Web address also better
aligns the organization with its
brand."
While preliminary research
suggests that the new Web site
has already succeeded in
addressing visitors' wishes and
concerns, the Boys & Girls

Streit believes the partnership
between his organization and

to how local businesses and non-

through strategic partnerships,"
said Streit.
"I also think it shows incredi-

entertain the idea of partnering
with a local nonprofit organiza-
tion and then actually stepped up
to the plate."

The Jack Wingate Thursday
Night Big Fish Tournament
hosted by the Hydrilla Gnats
Bass Club out of Wingate's
Lunker Lodge was won by Joey
Sloan with a big 7 3/4-pound
.bass. I don't think he slept at
all Thursday nite, or touched
the ground all day Friday. He
is 11 years of age.
The Georgia Bass Federation
Nation Youth Tournament, held
out of Wingate's on Saturday,
was won by our own Nic Jeter
with 10.93 pounds, and he had
the big fish at 4.79 pounds.
Dawson Lenz took second
with 10.09 pounds and his big
fish weighed 4.52 pounds.

Red Birds


There have been lots of bream
and shellcrackers taken on
crickets and worms. That's a
whole lot of beds up and down
the lake. Catfish did good on
wigglers this week, some as
long as 18 inches long. We
have had a very good week and
then 'Gator season opened
Saturday. We have photos of
the first two to come into

The Chattahoochee Red Birds
defeated the Jefferson A's 5-1
Sunday at Therell Field to
advance to the championship
game in the Southern
Conference of the
Georgia/Florida/Alabama
Baseball League.
It was excellent pitching by
starter, Tim Davis, and reliever,
Andy Pace, who held the A's to
only one run.
The win pits the Red, Birds
against the Quincy Dodgers in
the southern conference -cham-
pionship game. Davis went six
complete innings to pick up the
win, allowing only one run
while striking out 11 and walk-
ing only two.
Pace held the A's scoreless in
the remaining three innings,
allowing no hits or walks, with
four strikeouts. The Red Birds
are now 15-6 for the season and
2-0 in the playoffs, having won
their last nine games.
The Red Birds squandered
several opportunities to put the
game away early when the bases
were loaded but could not get


timely hits.
However, there was enough
left in the tank to push five runs
across the plate. Matt Neel went
two for five at the plate with' a
solo homer, while Demetric
Miller produced three hits, driv-
ing in two of the five runs. Chris
Pullen and Richie Smith con-
tributed two hits each.
By virtue of the Red Birds
having the overall better regular
season record, they will host the
Quincy Dodgers Sept. 14 at 3
p.m. at Therrell Field in
Chattahoochee.
The Dodgers were taking care
of business Sunday also by
upsetting the Tallahassee
Knights 6-4 to advance to the
southern conference finals
against the Red Birds.
The winner of the southern
conference will play the winner
of the northern conference
champion (Camilla or
Thomasville) a two-out or three-
game series, starting Sept. 24 to
determine the overall champion
in the Georgia/Florida/Alabama
Baseball League.

Moore's six touchdown throws lead to East Gadsden win


By Joe Ferolito
Times Sports Editor

East Gadsden High School's
Jamaica Moore had his right
arm hitting the right passing
lanes as East Gadsden flew to a
49-3 win over Tallahassee
Chiles at the East Gadsden sta-
dium Friday night.
It was the regular season open-
er for both teams. From the


start, the Jaguars were in con-
trol. The home team scored
three first quarter touchdowns
and by the half the score was 29-

Moore hit Lance Ray on a 60-
yard pass and run play to
account for the first East
Gadsden score with 4:23 left in
the first quarter.
Two minutes later, Moore hit
Marterricus Thomas with a 27-


yard scoring toss. Less than a
minute after that. Moore hooked
up with) Ray again, this time on
a 50-yard scoring play.
In the second quarter, Moore
zipped a pass to Ray for a 17-
yard touchdown.
The third quarter became a
Moore and Thomas show. The
two connected on pass plays of
71 and 38 yards for touchdowns.
Dontrious Gee closed out the


touchdown scoring with a 10-
yard run midway through the
fourth quarter.
"I felt we played just great on
offense and defense," said
Jaguar head coach Scott
Anderson. "We followed our
assignments on both sides of the
ball. I felt our whole effort was
solid."
Moore finished with 346 pass-
ing yards. Thomas caught eight


passes for 213 yards, while Ray
turned all three of his receptions
into touchdowns with a total of
127 yards.
East Gadsden also rolled up
more than 100 yards on the
ground with Gee gaining 66
yards and Montez Fryson grind-
ing out 50 yards.
Fryson also had a big defen-
sive game with two tackles
while Jeremiah Showers had a


pair of sacks.
Thomas not only had a huge
night at receiving, he added a
fumble recovery and an inter-
ception on defense.
Fernando Sanchez kicked five
extra points.
East Gadsden will be at home
again this week hosting
Suwannee County at 7:30 p.m.
Friday.


Nationwide Series new car

debuts at Richmond test


Differentiation and uniqueness are the name
of the game going forward with the introduc-
tion of the new car in the Nationwide Series.
The main difference between the current car
and the new car will be the chassis and the
body. The current chassis has a 105 inch
wheel base.
The new car will be a 110 inch NASCAR-
certified chassis, which is the same as the cur-
rent Sprint Cup car.
This also will allow current Nationwide
Series components to be brought forward in
an effort to contain costs.
The new car will provide the same safety
enhancements that are in place on the current
Cup car and will also
make more bolt-on
parts interchangeable
(for example, rear I
end housing), creat- &
ing cost savings for

the teams. Additionally, the new car will con-
tinue to use the rear spoiler whereas the Cup
car has a wing.
Cost containment and competitive balance
also are keys for the introduction of the new
cat in the Nationwide Series.
Tuesday's second day of testing has been re-
scheduled for a tmorning-only session since
the data gathered Monday by the manufactur-
ers and teams was sufficient.
The threat of rain in the afternoon also was
a factor.
The Nationwide Series new car is also set to
test Oct. 13-14 at Charlotte.

Bobcats lose opener to Rocky Bayou


Rocky Bayou took advantage
of Munroe mistakes and came
away with a 25-12 win in the sea-
son football opener for both
teams last Friday in Niceville.
Munroe scored first in the con-
test when Cody Watson closed
out a drive on a 3-yard touch-
down run.
Rocky Bayou's Justyn Wright
took the ensuing kickoff 89 yards
for a tying score and the
Okaloosa County team kicked
the extra point to clinch a 7-6
lead.


That lead was short-lived
because the Bobcats' Trey
Kramm returned the Rocky
Bayou kickoff 91 yards for a
touchdown and a 12-7 lead.
Before the half was over Rocky
Bayou reclaimed the lead on a
rushing and receiving touchdown
by Billy Thomas to put the home
team ahead 19-12 at the half.
Penalties and miscues plagued
Munroe in the second half. The
only score in the half came on a
60-yard punt return by James
Kaim for the home team.


Watson finished the night with
68 yards rushing to lead the
offense and the senior was also in
on 12 tackles.
"I was disappointed with a lot
of our play," Coach Adam Reep
said. "We made a lot of mistakes
and penalties and it hurt.
However, I feel these are the kind
of miscues that can be worked on
and we can get a lot better."
Munroe plays at Westwood in
Camilla, Ga., this Friday at 7:30
p.m.


WGHS Panthers fall to Niceville 42-7


"It was a tough night for us,"
West Gadsden head coach
Antonio Bradwell said. "They
were very inspired and emotion-
al and took it too us from the
start."
"They" were the Niceville
Eagles, who suffered a tragic loss
the Friday night before when a
sophomore player collapsed and
died during their Kickoff Classic.
"We were playing the game for
Taylor Haugen," Niceville quar-


terback Rick Whiddon said. "It
made us play hard."
Whiddon had a big night for
Niceville, rushing for 138 yards
and passing for 88 yards.
Whiddon ran in one touchdown
and passed for another.
West Gadsden scored on a fum-
ble recovery return by Charles
Colston. Colston covered 61
yards on the scoring run.
"We learned some things from
the game," Bradwell said, "and


we also came out of it with no
injuries."
Statistically, Chris Williams led
West Gadsden with 41 yards
rushing. John Battle had 58
passing yards and Jesse Winbush
was the leading receiver with 37
yards. On defense, Anthony
Hubert had eight tackles and
Gary Brown had six.
The Panthers play at
Blountstown Friday night at 8
p.m.

How to



Raise



Life-Long



Readers


FAMILY FEATURES
Books open a window to the world,
taking readers to other times and other
places -- introducing them to new
thoughts and ideas. Yet reading does
much more than expand the imagina-
tion, especially for children.
Research shows that exposure to books in early
childhood -- even in infancy -- is critical to future
reading development. It's a building block for early
learning experiences, contributing to language
development, better grades in school and enhanced
productivity in. adult life.
In 2007, the National Center for Educational
Statistics released its annual "Reading Report," find-
ing that a ,.,c erin.. 33 percent of all fourth-graders
in this country still cannot read at even the basic
level. Worse yet, deficient readers run higher risks
of failure in personal, professional and social areas.
Even those who do read at grade level face addi-
tional challenges. For instance, as children age,
research shows that time spent reading decreases.
Eighth grade seems to be the tipping point where
children stop reading for pleasure due to more home-
work and competing interests. On average, yotng
people between the ages of 15 and 24 spend almost
two hours a day watching TV, but only seven min-
utes of their daily leisure time reading.
So what can parents and caregivers do to give
children a solid reading foundation and help them
become life-long readers?
Read with them. Reading aloud to a child is
one of the most important things you can do. At
least once'every day, try to set aside some time to
read together. even if it's just a few minutes.
It can be from a book, a magazine, a newspaper
anything. Reading not only exposes children to
language. rhythm and sounds, but it's also-a great
time for bonding.
Feed their interests. Help your children find
books or articles that focus on their interests;
they'll be more motivated to read about a topic
that's exciting to them. And respect their choices
in reading materials if it keeps them turning
pages, it's helping them.
Praise their efforts. Positive reinforcement is a
powerful motivator.
Be a good role model. Let your child see you
read. Talk about books that you're reading and
share interesting passages with them.
Give them plenty to read. Take them to the
library regularly, and keep books and other read-
ing materials in reach. It doesn't matter if the
materials are owned or borrowed, new or used;
what's important is that reading is a natural part
of everyday life.


It's been said that children become readers on the
laps of their parents. \l .ii,..r a single parent, work-
ing parent, grandparent or caregiver, adults have the
power to enhance a child's life, improve their learn-
ing and foster a life-long love of reading and it
all starts with, "Once upon a time ..

A Book for Every Child
N ot everyone has the means to build up a home library, In fact,
according to the U.S. Census Bureau, 12.8 million children
live in poverty. Library use by low-income families drops
dJ.,iii.,ill' if they live more than six blocks from a public library.
And when school closes li'r hlij.i', and vacations, these children
often don't have access to any books at all.

Seven years later:


Where were you on the morning of Sept. 11, 2001?

When the airplanes hit 'the
Twin Towers. at the World Trade
Center in New York. City, the
tragedy touched many here,
although Quincy is hundreds of
miles away.
Amanda Geathers was a 22-
year-old mother who worked at
the Leon County Courthouse in
2001. Her husband was driving
a truck cross-country and was
pretty much halted in Michigan
and her baby was in daycare.
"Everything happened so fast.
I was remembering the
Oklahoma City bombing. They
locked us in the office because I
really believed that no one real-
ly knew what was going to be
next. There was a lot of talk
throughout the office but mainly
people were just glued to their
radios and televisions," she said.
The experience changed the
lives of the Geathers family and
James no longer drives long dis-
tance. The family feels safe, but
Amanda says she will never be
the same.
"When I first heard it on the
radio, I thought it was one of
those crazy commercials. You
know, they're always saying
crazy things. But when I went to
the office, they were all glued to
the TV and that's when I knew
what they were saying on the
radio was true," said Archie
Dotson, who worked at May
Nursery.
Another woman didn't recall
where she was that day and her
daughter, 17, said all she knew
about 9-11 was what she had
been taught in school.
Mark Allen was a teacher and
football coach at Chattahoochee
High School on that fateful day.
He recalled that his students first
told him of the tragedies.
"The students in my next peri-
od class came in and told me
what happened. I though they
were teasing, but then they were
acting in such disbelief, I turned
on the TV. After that we were all
just trying to digest what had
just happened. All of my stu-
dents were very quiet that day,"
he said.
Florida Department of
Transportation employee John
Youmans remembers the
National Guard staging near the
office on Suwannee Street.


"At the time, Jeb Bush was
governor and he is the presi-
dent's brother and I think he
thought that because Tallahassee
is.F1orida's capital, it might be a
target, too. We were locked
down. If you left the building,
you weren't allowed back in.
They locked the doors,"
Youmans said.
Most streets leading to the
capitol were closed. Youmans
said .Gaines and Munroe streets


1 ".-:.--. "
were completed closed.
Tim Hall was a deputy with the
Gadsden County Sheriff's
Office at the time of the attacks.
and while they were told all law
enforcement throughout the
state were on high alert, they
weren't given any special
instructions. Since then, he said,
much of the. mandatory law
enforcement training has incor-
porated anti-terrorist informa-
tion.


Judy Ware said she heard
about 9-11 from her cousin,
Betty Curtis, who lives in Fort
Lauderdale.
"She called and asked me if I.
had heard about what happened
in New York. That's when she
started to tell me about the
World Trade Center. Later it was
the Pentagon and then that air-
plane over Pennsylvania," she
said.
But Ware said she never felt
unsafe despite the uncertainty of
the events of that day.


Youmans


Hall


Campbell.


Cedrick Campbell. was a stu-
dent with a part-time job in 2001
and was asleep on the morning
of 9-11. He got a call from a
friend who told him to wake up
and turn on the television.
"It was unreal," he said.


Couple recalls Sept. 11 as a day of fear because of what was unknown


By ALICE DUPONT
Times Editor

Wallingers Falls, N.Y., is a
quiet little town about 60 miles
north of what people in New
York state refer to as "the city."
In 2001, Quincy natives Clarence
and Patricia Tennell lived in
Wappingers Falls. Two years
ago,-the retired couple returned
home and opened a women's
clothing boutique they named
Kourtney's.
Last week, nearing the seventh
anniversary the events of Sept.
11,2001, the couple talked about
where they were the day two ter-
rorist strikes sent airplanes crash-
ing into the ttwin towers of the
World Trade Center, killing thou-
sands.
"Our daughter, Sonya, worked
two blocks from the towers, and
that was a concern. She called me
and said she and her coworkers


were looking out of the window
after the first crash. She saw the
second crash and I told her to get
out of there. That was the last we
heard from her for most of the
day because the lines were so
jammed. I really wasn't worried
for her safety for some reason,"
Patricia said.
Subways were out and may
streets were blocked, and to get
to her apartment, Sonya, like
most New Yorkers that day,
walked and took taxis and buses
(if available) to get home. Later
that night she was able to make
her way home to her parents. She
was upset but safe.
An administrator at Calvary
(Catholic) Hospital, Patricia said
they immediately went into
prayer when they learned of the
crash, and then into full hospital
alert.
"We went into our disaster plan
for providing food and shelter for


emergency workers and to take
any overflow from the strikes.
We thought we'd be getting
patients. We thought that ambu-
lances would be transferring
patients, but no patients ever
came, they were all dead," she
said, remembering with sadness.
Prior to 9-11, Clarence had
retired and on that day, he was
spending some time in Gold's
Gym. He said people in the gym
thought it was the Empire State
Building because an airplane has
hit it in the past.
"When I left the gym the gravi-
ty of the situation had not
dawned on me. I sat mesmerized
watching the television for the
rest of the day. I couldn't believe
it had happened," Clarence said.
He said the son of a friend lost
his son who worked in the towers
and they were acquainted with
others who lost relatives in the
crash.


The 9-11 tragedies touched
them in much the same way it
touched many Americans. The
couple talked about what hap-


opened often before they moved
back to Quincy in 2005, and they
are grateful to be in Quincy -
and in the USA.


Patricia and Clarence Tennell relax a moment in downtown,
Quincy. but in 2001 the couple lived a short 60 miles from New
York City and remember all too well where they were on Sept. 11,

foundation at age 13, when she
began attending Edward Waters
College in Jacksonville and
Essex Community College in
Detroit, Mich., graduating in
nursing.
Her career at Greystone Park
Psychaiatric Hospital in New
Jersey afforded her retirement
after 35 years of service. In
1991 her home state of Florida
beckoned her and she moved to
Quincy.
Committed to her calling as a
nurse, she continued to receive
additional nursing certificates
and learning which she con-
tributed to years' of volunteer
service at Gadsden Community
Hospital in Quincy.
Having been reared by a God-
fearing family, she accepted
Christ early in life and
remained a dedicated member
of her beloved New Bethel
AME Church.
She served tirelessly in vari-
ous auxiliaries, including the
lay organization, missionary
society, usher board,
steward/wtewardess board and
Sunday School class leader.
Her church family best
describes her as a loving, car-
ing, strong-willed and devoted
Christian with a willingness to
service. Funeral services will
be held today at 11 a.m. at the
New Bethel AME Church in
Quincy, with burial in the
Bonnie Hill Cemetery in
Chattahoochee.
Rev. Roosevelt Hardy offici-
ated the service and Rev. Harry
Dawkins served as eulogist.

devoted family, including a

A SEED FROM THE SOWER


THE HOSE AND THE CAN
Read John 7:37-39
A neighbor was sprinkling his
lawn. The water was pouring from
his hose. His little boy hurried with
his sprinkling can.
He filled it with water and went
from sprig to sprig, and the water
trickled from his can.
It didn't matter if the water came
from the big hose or the little can;
the grass was watered. It matters lit-
tle how well-known or unknown
you are, how skilled or unskilled
you are. Just so the water of life
flows from your heart, and you do
what you can.

FOOLED
Read Proverbs 20:1 LB
A woman telephoned the police,
saying, "Thieves have broken into
my car, stealing my steering wheel,
the.brake pedal, the gas pedal and
the dash."
"We'll come and check it out with-
in the hour," said the sergeant.


Minutes later the same voice said,
"Don't bother! I got into the back
seat by mistake."
Poor soul. She didn't make
"Who's Who," but she did make
"Booze Who." No person ever
drank saneness into his life, money
into his pocket, happiness into his
home, the Lord into his heart, or his
soul into heaven. The Bible says,
"What fools men are to let it master
them."

ATTITUDE IS SHOWING
Read Phillippians 4:6
A merchant said to a farmer, "You
must be thrilled with your bumIper
crop of potatoes."
"Well," replied the fanner,
"They're plenty good. But we don't
have any bad ones to feed to the
pigs."
I feel sony for the one who's
nasty, narrow and negative. Your
attitude will make or break you. It's
more important than money or
might. And the remarkable thing is

Things just stack up in life, just like a sink
full of dishes. You can wish 'em away, or
you can wash 'em up. The tough part is get-
ting started.. This coming Sunday at 9:00
AM is a good time to wash up the dishes in
your life. Time to start fresh. At St. Paul's in
Quincy we are starting new classes, all the
way from the deep end of the theological
pool to refresher courses to remind you of
God's purpose for your life. At St. Paul's we
don't tell you what to believe, we help you
find if for yourself.


At St. Paul's you'll find people with hot
water, a brush and some detergent. May we

,+ *?Keeping kids healthy and

Smin school naturally


Eighth grade officers are student council representative. Vince Fioramanti. son of Pete and Kim Fioramanti: treasurer. McLane Edwards.
son of Larry and Michelle Edwards: secretary, Cameron McMullen. daughter of Sharon McMullen and Finley McMullen: vice-president,
Kaitlyn Sirmons. daughter of Don and Donna Sirmons: president. Audrey Thomas, daughter of John Pat and Martha Thomas: and chaplain
and student council representative, Dustin Watson, son of Archic and Robin Watson.


Keeping kids and teens healthy
can be a challenge during the
busy school year. In fact, the
Centers for Disease Control and
Prevention say that nearly 22
million school days are lost
annually due to
the common
cold alone.
Fortunately,
there are some
simple and natu-
ral things par-
ents can do to
help kids stay
healthy and
energized for all
their activities.
Hygiene: The
CDC says that
the single most
important thing
you can do to
keep from getting sick is to
wash your hands. When there's
not sink and soap around, use
natural hand sanitizers wipes
or gel with 100 percent pure
essential oils.
Nutrition: Growing bodies and
brains need fiber and nutrients
to stay healthy. A child's health
can suffer from too few of these
good things and too many sug-
ary, highly processed foods.
The USDA Food Guide
Pyramid recommends nine serv-
ings of fruits and vegetables a
day. One serving size of fruits
and veggies for children equals
one of the following:
* 1/2 cup juice
* 1 cup raw leafy salad greens
* 1/2 cup chopped raw, canned
or cooked fruit or other veg-
etable
Essential fatty acids, particu-
larly omega-3s, are crucial for
development and health of the
brain, heart, nervous system, tis-
sues, skin and immune system,
especially for school-age chil-
dren. DHA can be found in fatty
cold-water fish like salmon,
mackerel and tuna, and in DHA-
enriched products like eggs and
milk.
What about nutritional supple-
ments? If kids and teens are
actually eating nine servings of
colorful fruits and veggies -
plus foods containing all the


other recommended daily nutri-
ents every day, then they prob-
ably don't need them. But with
picky eaters, tight schedules,
food allergies and more, they
don't often get what they need.
In these cases,
supplements
might be a good
idea. But be
careful. While
it's. easy to find a
fun and fruity
multivitamin
that kids don't
mind taking
each day, it's the
nutrients they
need, not loads
of sugar or artifi-
cial colors and
flavors.
Rest: Rest,
relaxation and sleep are key for
handling stress. While moderate
stress is normal, the demands of
school life can cause stress over-
load for youngsters and adoles-
cents-and their parents and
teachers! Be sure to schedule in
downtime and allow for ade-
quate sleep when you're plan-
ning the week.
Kids need more sleep than you
might think.
* 3-6 years old: 10 3/4-12
hours per day
* 7-12 years old: 10-11 hours
per day
* 12-18 years old: 8-9 hours
per day
Stomachaches, nervousness,
trouble sleeping, anger flares or
infections may be signs of
stress. Fortunately, there are

Unemployment rate climbs


By ANGYE MORRISON
Times Managing Editor

According to a report
released earlier this month by
the U.S. Department of
Labor, the nation's unemploy-
ment rate reached a five-year
high of 6.1 percent in August,
proving what economic
experts have been saying for
months now the unsettled
economy is having a negative
affect on workers and busi-
nesses alike.
The report showed the ever-
increasing toll the housing,
credit and financial crises are
taking on the overall econo-
my.
And the news could get
worse. With the immediate
outlook dim at best and
unemployment numbers con-
tinuing to climb, Wall Street's
greatest fear is that con-
sumers will react by pulling
away from investing altogeth-
er.
The jobless rate was at 5.7
percent in July. In June,
100,000 jobs were cut nation-
wide, followed by 'another
60,000 in July, according to
the report. Employers all over
the country are reducing their
staffs, and not rehiring when
a worker leaves or retires.
Companies that have
announced job cuts included
Wachovia Corp., Ford Motor,
Tyson Foods Inc and Alcoa
Inc. GMAC Financial
Services has also announced
plans to cut 5,000 jobs.
According to the depart-
ment's report, 61,000 factory

jobs were slashed, wilthli ho.-
ing-related itanitacil ltnlrers antd
automakers taking the biggest
hit. Construction firms cut
8,.00 jobs, retailers cut
20,000 positions and profes-
sional and business services
cut 53,000 positions. The
leisure and hospitality indus-
try, Florida's bread and but-
ter, cut 4,000 jobs nation-
wide, while private employ-
ers cut 101,000 jobs.
The mining and health care
industries have continued to
add jobs. The number of mul-
tiple jobholders increased by
298,000 in August to 8.1 mil-
lion, accounting for 5.5 per-
cent of total employed.
Labor officials said 25-year-
old workers and older
accounted for the entire
increase in unemployment in
August. Nationwide, 9.4 mil-
lion were unemployed in
August, compared to 7.1 mil-
lion a year ago. Economic
experts are predicted a jobless
rate of 6.5 percent or higher
next year.
Despite the rise in unem-
ployment, the report showed
average hourly earnings rose
to $18.14 in August, a 0.4-
percent increase from July.
But even with wage increas-
es, the dollar still isn't
stretching far enough to keep
up with the rising cost of food
and fuel.
The Fed is scheduled to con-
vene Sept. 16 to keep a key
interest rate at 2 percent, and
economic experts hope it will
remain there through the end
of the year.
