In an interview with the Times, Turner explained his shortand long-term goals for the police department, should he remain in office. I would like to restore the trust of the citizens of Midway in their police department, said Turner. In the long term, I would like the department to apply for accreditation by 2016; wed be the first police department in Gadsden County to become accredited.

See CHIEF/ Page A2 GTI hosts annual expo CHERI HARRISTimesGadsden Technical Institute put its programs on display for prospective students and other guests during the eighth annual Career and Technical Education Expo this past Friday at the school in Quincy. Some students in the carpentry class had projects on display. Sedrick Dixon, who is learning carpentry and working toward his GED, showed off a pine dresser/vanity he has nearly completed. Sedrick said the only thing missing is the back. I like working with my hands and whatnot, he said, and I like to learn more. Jeff Suber, the carpentry instructor, said students learn a wide variety of skills in the program including framing, reading plans, tool safety and power tool safety. Retired educator Edna Hussein-Forehand is now a GTI carpentry student. Ive enjoyed every bit of it, she said. She encouraged other women to get used to using tools and to not be afraid of the sound of the saw. In addition to building a chair that converts into a ladder for a bunk bed, HusseinForehand said her carpentry skills also came in handy in replacing her back steps. Thats the kind of thing you can look at doing, she said, pointing out a photo of her completed project. Cynthia Kimbrell, nail technology instructor, said many students were bused to the expo from East Gadsden and West Gadsden high schools, as well as Carter-Parramore Academy. She said high school students can take classes at GTI for free. This is the only time in their lives they can take this class for free, she said.

Photo by Cheri Harris MPD traffic stop leads to drug charges A traffic stop Sunday ended in arrest on drug charges for one suspect. At about 2 p.m., Midway Police Department Traffic Enforcement Unit conducted a traffic stop on a vehicle suspected of speeding west on U.S. Highway 90 near the Pilot Truck Stop. According to an MPD press release, as officers approached the vehicle, they smelled a strong odor of marijuana coming from the vehicle. The driver insisted there was nothing illegal in his vehicle. After further questioning, the driver admitted to having marijuana stashed in a shoebox inside his backpack, the release stated. Once officers retrieved the box, they found plastic zip-lock bags containing what appeared to be marijuana, according to the release. The driver, Lenard Tyrone Tiggs, 32, was taken into custody, and a search of the vehicle revealed a loaded .40-caliber handgun under the driver seat of his vehicle. Field test confirmed the substance to be marijuana, and was weighed at approximately 128 grams, the release stated. Interim Police Chief Jerome Turner said in the press release, This seizure is the result of the relentless pursuit of those that violate laws in our community and think they can get away with it. MPD will continue to be a proactive agency in ridding our community of illegal drugs and criminal activity. Tiggs was transported to the Gadsden County Jail without incident. Tiggs was arrested on charges of: trafficking, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, violation of probation, and he was given a written warning for the excessive speed. Lenard Tiggs TCC unveils new strategic plan CURT WILKERSONTimes CorrespondentTallahassee Community College President Jim Murdaugh presented the colleges new strategic plan to members of the Gadsden County community in an Oct. 30 event at the Florida Public Safety Institute Conference Center in Havana. The plan is the result of months of research and town hall meetings conducted in Gadsden, Leon and Wakulla counties. Essentially, the plan is designed to serve three primary functions: It provides a map for steering the institution; it aligns the colleges efforts with other universities and colleges and is used as a tool to help make decisions moving forward. This document will allow us to make decisions about how we allocate resources, what we place an emphasis on and help us measure how we are doing along the way, said Murdaugh. At the end of the day, we are skating towards the dashboard for our website because we think its critically important that the communities we serve see how we are doing on things that are important to you. Murdaugh also explained how the plan affects Gadsden County residents, and also addressed concerns raised at Gadsden County town hall meetings. We heard you say that in Gadsden County there is a need for professional development certificates of training for small businesses, said Murdaugh. In our strategic plan there is a major section that refers to the work that we do in our academic and Tallahassee Community College President Jim Murdaugh speaks at a strategic plan meeting.

One example of this is a proposal to the state for a four-year Bachelor of Science in nursing program. That was a demand-driven proposal that we responded to from our community, said Murdaugh. In response to concerns that students need to become more tech-savvy, Murdaugh described plans to implement Workday Student, the first student service application developed for colleges since the 1990s. Workday is intended to put tech in the hands of our students to help personalize their education experience at T.C.C., said Murdaugh. Additionally, Murdaugh touched on the need for an expansion of marketing efforts in Gadsden County to make sure that residents are aware of the resources and opportunities that are available to them through the school. President Murdaugh then opened the floor to take questions from various members of the Gadsden County community. Quincy Police Department Assistant Chief Glenn Sapp expressed concern over Quincys unemployment rate. We dont have a lot of industry right now to sustain our population with employment, and that trickles down into problems with our criminal justice system, said Sapp. What role do you see TCC playing in terms of training a workforce that would recruit industry to come to Gadsden County? Murdaugh gave his assurances that helping lure business to the region is a major initiative for TCC. We believe that we are one of the major talent supply pipelines for businesses, and we are heavily engaged in every conversation when companies talk about relocating to the region, Murdaugh responded. Our hope would be that we can recruit business and industry to Gadsden County, and we will be there to provide the education and training for that effort.

DEP closes on 21,000-acre conservation easement buffering Eglin Air Force Base TALLAHASSEE The Florida Department of Environmental Protection has closed on a conservation easement of nearly 21,000 acres that also acts as a buffer to Eglin Air Force Base in the Florida Panhandle. The purchase, approved in August by Governor Rick Scott and the Florida Cabinet, is a partnership between the Florida Department of Environmental Protection, The Trust for Public Land, landowner M.C. Davis and Eglin Air Force Base after Florida was awarded $1.75 million from the U.S. Department of Defense as part of the 2013 REPI Challenge. Governor Scott said, Florida continues to show that it is the most military friendly state in the country and I am proud to continue partnering with our armed forces to ensure our military can properly train in Florida. This partnership between MC Davis, The Trust for Public Land, Florida and the U.S. Department of Defense is a great example of how we can protect our environment while supporting our U.S. Military. The Department contributed $10.2 million of Florida Forever funds, Davis discounted the property by $7 million, the U.S. Department of Defense contributed $1.75 million as part of the 2013 REPI Challenge and Eglin Air Force Base contributed $550,000. The Readiness and Environmental Protection Integration Program funds costsharing partnerships for the military with state and local governments and private conservation organizations to address the need for compatible land use and conserved natural landscapes in support of military readiness. Projects require at least a 1:1 funding match. This large tract of conservation land is a testament to the partnership between Florida, the Department of Defense, the Trust for Public Land and landowner MC Davis, who has discounted this conservation land as a service to Floridians, said DEP Secretary Herschel T. Vinyard Jr. This purchase helps to fulfill the Departments continued emphasis on preserving conservation land that protects springs, water resources and buffers military areas. Col. Shawn Moore, 96th Civil Engineer Group commander, said, Eglin Air Force Base is very grateful to Governor Scott and his staff at the Florida Department of Environmental Protection, the Trust for Public Land, Nokuse Education Inc., and the late Ms. Nancy Natoli of the Office of the Deputy Under Secretary of Defense (Installations and Environment), for their dedication in getting this landmark conservation easement put in place. Collectively, via the Readiness and Environmental Protection Integration (REPI) initiative, this partnership recognized the importance of protecting Eglin and its missions and the value of protecting the natural resources within the State of Florida. The purchase completes the Seven Runs Creek Florida Forever Project. In 2010, the North Nokuse Plantation project, which encompasses 11,961 acres, and the Seven Runs Creek project 14,649 acres were combined. The project was added to the Florida Forever priority list because of its groundwater recharge benefits and ability to protect 14 rare species, including the Florida black bear, gopher tortoise, Florida pine snake, Pine Barrens treefrog and eastern diamondback rattlesnake. It also provides additional buffer for Eglin Air Force Base, one of the countrys largest Air Force bases. The 20,800-acre conservation easement is the second largest in Florida history behind Fisheating Creek, a nearly 42,000 acre conservation easement in Glades County that closed in 1999. Greg Chelius, senior project manager for The Trust for Public Land said, Were always grateful to partner with the State of Florida. Seven Runs Creek is a priority for clean drinking water and the Gulf of Mexico. M.C. Davis, the landowner, has already planted 7 million longleaf pine trees and his vision for restoration is the centerpiece of this initiative. Our airmen and airwomen at Eglin Air Force Base and the people of Walton County will benefit from the protected lands which buffer the base. Landowner M.C. Davis said, The Seven Runs project is a shining and original example of Entrepreneurial Conservation.

On what first appeared to be a soggy Friday evening, the Bobcats of Robert F. Munroe Day School found the weather and the field conditions to their liking. Playing at Panama City Bozeman High School, the Bobcats amassed 438 yards of offense and came up with the stops defensively to keep the Buccaneers of North Bay Haven in check. In doing so, the Bobcats put a damper on the homecoming and senior night festivities. We were a little concerned coming into this game with several of the guys battling the flu, said Interim Coach Joey Edwards. Thankfully, we had everybody with us except two players. The kids came to play, and we had a couple of youngsters, lineman Gene Pfund being one of them, step up for us! For the night, the Bobcats scored on six of their eight possessions and never punted. After kicking off and holding North Bay Haven on downs, Munroe would march 80 yards for the opening score on a oneyard plunge by quarterback Will Harris (kick failed). The big play in the drive was a 38-yard pass from Harris to Cole Skipper on third down in their own territory. North Bay Haven would respond with a 65-yard drive of their own and briefly took the lead 7-6, but the Bobcats would respond with three consecutive scoring drives, the first ending with an 11-yard run by Myles Edwards (Harris to Bo Bailey twopoint conversion), the next with an Edwards 3-yard run (Cole Skipper kick), and the last with a 37-yard Skipper field goal. The Bobcats would head to the locker room with a comfortable 24-7 lead. After receiving the second-half kick, the Bobcats fumbled and turned the ball over to the Buccaneers on the first play from scrimmage. The Buccaneers wasted little time, scoring on an 18-yard pass from Michael Cowart to Darius Richardson (Bingham kick) and suddenly, the lead had been shortened to 24-14. But the Bobcats would respond with a methodical 67-yard drive featuring the running of Edwards and Bailey. The drive culminated with a 13yard Harris run (Skip-WWW.GADCOTIMES.COMTHEGADSDENCOUNTYTIMES THURSDAY, NOVEMBER7, 2013 A3 Sports Jags claw out a tough one Action near the 20-yard line in the first quarter leads to slipping and sliding, but no scoring. Photo by Cheri Harris TERRANCE CHISOLMTimes Sports CorrespondentThis past Friday the East Gadsden football team stepped onto the field to play their final home game of the season against the Walton High Braves. Most of the Jag fan base was not in attendance due to the steady flow of rain that fell before and during the game, but some supporters chose to pull out their umbrellas and come cheer on the Jaguars. During the first quarter, offenses from both teams had trouble moving the ball because of the wet field. The offenses mostly ran on 1st and 2nd down and often found themselves forced to throw the ball on third down in an attempt to receive a fresh set of downs, but both teams quarterbacks had trouble dealing with the slipperiness of the football and were unable to make accurate throws to receivers. At the end of the first quarter, the game was still knotted up zero to zero. With just under 9:00 to go in the second quarter after a few nice runs, Waltons offense had the ball near midfield but after a few penalties they quickly pushed themselves back near their own 25-yard line. With 6:05 left in the half, the Braves received a false start penalty, forcing them to punt on the next play from their 20-yard line; East Gadsdens Jeremiah Johnson blocked the punt, scooped the ball up and ran into the end zone to score the first points of the game with 5:37 remaining in the half. After Walton committed two consecutive penalties, on East Gadsdens extra-point attempt the Jaguars decided to go for a two-point conversion and with 5:29 to go before half-time, an East Gadsden runner busted up the middle of the line and found the end zone from 1 yard out to push the lead to 8-0. Both teams committed several penalties in the first half but the Braves penalties seemed to hurt them more because they led to points for the Jaguars. East Gadsden received the ball to start the second half and got a good return from Jeremy Frieson, who ran the kick back to midfield, but the drive ended when the Jaguars went for it on 4th down after Trini Charleston came up short on third down, giving Walton High the ball inside their 10yard line. With 3:28 left in the third quarter, Waltons running back broke up the middle and ran into the end zone from about 25 yards out; the Braves tried to tie the game up by going for a two-point conversion but came up short and with 3:20 to play in the third, the Jaguars held a small 8-6 lead over Walton. The game was still up for grabs as the final quarter of the Jaguar season leads to spot in playoffs TERRANCE CHISOLMTimes Sports CorrespondentThe Jaguars have had an up and down season this year, but they fought through it and clinched a spot in the playoffs with their win this past Friday over Walton High. East Gadsden is currently second in the district with a record of 2-1, and are 5-4 overall on the season. This young Jaguar team has played a challenging schedule that has included several bigger schools such as Godby, Wakulla and Pineforest. Jaguar Head Coach Tracy Laing said that everyone wants to compare this team to other teams from previous years, but East Gadsden has never played this kind of schedule. When asked about his overall feelings on how the season has played out so far, Laing said, Im pretty satisfied, wished we could have clinched the district, but I think we have a bright future; were a very young and talented team. As East Gadsden finishes up its regular season and heads into the post-season, Laing said his team has to play fundament football, continue to establish the run game on offense, and the defense must step up. Laing said his players have worked hard and the kids have done an outstanding job this year. Congratulations to first-year head coach Tracy Laing and the Jaguars for battling their way through a tough schedule and making the post-season. Go Jaguars! TERRANCE CHISOLMTimes Sports CorrespondentThe West Gadsden High School boys basketball team will be kicking off the season by hosting a tournament on November 14 and 16. North Florida Christian, Sneads High, and Tallavana are the other teams participating in the tournament. Two games will be played on each day; tipoff for the first game will be 6:30 p.m. and the second game is scheduled to start at 8:00p.m. Panther Head Coach Andrew Moten said this years team is young. West Gadsden lost seven seniors to graduation last year, and will only have five seniors on this years squad. Moten said this season they will press and play an up-tempo style of basketball. The Panthers leader said his reason for putting the tournament together was to see where we are, and to give the kids an opportunity to play. I want to see if we can execute our offense and up-tempo style. Lets come out and show the Panthers some love and support as they embark upon the season. WGHS Panthers open basketball season with tourney Bobcats best the Buccaneers 43-29 See RFM/ Page A5 SUSIE MORRISTimes Sports CorrespondentIt was not how it was supposed to end. In traditional fashion, based on results for several years, the Munroe volleyball team would travel to Jacksonville, face an undermanned 2A volleyball team, and then the Lady Cats would prepare for a rematch within their own District 1-2A opponent. Instead the team faced a scrappy, attacking Christys Church Academy squad that was formerly a 3A classification competitor. Before a crowded, mostly CCA gym, Christs Church defeated the Bobcat team in three straight games with scores of 25-18, 25-20, 2014. Munroes offense was led by Karleebeth Perkins with seven kills and Maddey Pappadakis with six kills. Defensively, senior Olivia Fletcher tallied two blocks and four digs in her last game for the Lady Cats. Perkins and Pappadakis each finished with five digs and Kadejah Glynn added four digs. Christs Church (17-5) moves forward in the playoffs to face their own district opponent, Peniel Baptist of Palatka, who defeated FAMU in five games. Munroes season concludes with an 8-17 record.

A4THEGADSDENCOUNTYTIMES THURSDAY, NOVEMBER7, 2013 WWW.GADCOTIMES.COMHave you ever wondered if you are strong enough or brave enough to risk your life to save someone elses, whether friend or stranger? I know that I have and more times than I am able to remember. One incident stands out, more than all the others, where I knew someone who had actually risked his life to save two strangers. The mans name was Mel Schneidermeyer, and almost 60 years ago he pulled at least two teenage boys from a fiery auto wreck in front of his rural home. Mr. S. gave up all care and concern for himself and his wife and children and dove into that extremely dangerous wreck to free two boys from what would have been a horrible death for them. Mel Schneidermeyer was a quiet man, a humble man, who wasnt out to make a name for himself; he had already achieved that by accomplishing himself as one of Southington, Connecticuts finest family men and planning and zoning executive. Whenever I have dwelled upon how good a Christian or man I am, I have wondered if I could have done what Mr. S. had done to risk giving up his life to save anothers. Recently, we have had to endure more ominous news from the media about yet another school shooting, and perhaps even more newsworthy, the heroics performed by another teacher. This time the teacher sacrificing his life to protect students was Mike Landsberry. Mr. Landsberry didnt deserve to die this way, even though he saved students lives. He was a veteran of the Marine Corps and had already honored his country. Youll recall that in the shootings at the Newtown, Conn., elementary school, teachers also gave up their lives to save students. I cant help but wonder again if I would have done the same thing for my middleschool students. I was fortunate to have retired when I did and not have had to wonder on a daily basis if today would be the day our school would be visited by a potentially troubled student about to become a killer. I know I have shared in the past, that even in the 1990s I was approached by troubled students when they shared that one of their fellow classmates had been brandishing a handgun at them. The assistant principal and I had been able to nip the potential trouble in the bud. Most of us have gone out of our way and may have even risked potential harm to ourselves in order to assist a friend or stranger. However, how many of us have overtly, and by our own choice, entered into a life or death situation to save one from peril? For us, Christians, we have the supreme example of one laying down his life for his friends, in Jesus Christ. In fact, back in those times, men were asked to give up their mortal, earth-centered lives, in order to follow Christ. As we know, not all the disciples were capable of doing that. Have you wondered, once again, about yourself? Would you, are you, sacrificing eternal life, because it is focused on earthly things and things of the flesh, instead of trying to live a Christ-like life that promises us life everlasting? Even at my rather advanced age, I like to believe I am living in such a manner that I put others first (most of the time) and truly do have enough faith to gain entrance to Heaven. However, like most mortals, I fall short of being Christ-like enough. I am all too well aware of my shortcomings and wonder if they will be in such abundance that I might enter the realm of Satan one day. I have heard my own pastor speak of Mother Theresa recently and about whether or not she would be a candidate for eternal life. I cant help but believe that ultimately this remarkable woman, so full of faith, and her devotion and caring for others, would somehow gain her entrance to heaven. She was a supreme example of a contemporary servant of God, doing her utmost to serve mankind. Oh, that I could be as self-effacing as she and become as humble and philanthropic. Can you imagine giving up so much of yourself as Christ did, or Mother Theresa did, and to be as poor and destitute in order to serve others? I cant help but recall those words from Luke 9: 23-24: Then He said to them all, If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow Me. For whoever desires to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake will save it. I hope you are feeling at peace with yourself, no matter what your lot in life is and that you are striving to be good and put others first. God bless you. American veterans have served and sacrificed since 1775 when General George Washington was made commander of the Continental Army. Washingtons job was to organize and train groups of unorganized, poorly trained and un-uniformed colonial militiamen to prepare for and go to war with the kingdom of Great Britain. At this point in history, the 13 colonies lacked both a professional army and navy. On the other hand, the British Royal Navy had more than 100 war ships and the British Army had 36,000 standing well trained war troops. Why, then, with odds stacked so far against them, would the Americans believe they could honestly go to war with Great Britain? I believe the reason for this against all odds faith in victory was the fact that the Americans were fighting, in principle if not totally in practice, for freedom of religion, tyranny and political persecution. The fact that most Americans today drink their tea cold and not hot reminds us that these deeprooted beliefs in freedom and liberty would prevail and Colonial America did win the war with Great Britain. I started this article with a history lesson to make a point. Veterans Day, which we observe on the 11th day of the 11th month, is all about recognizing and honoring all veterans who have served and risked death to provide the rest of America with the freedoms to do all the good and evil things we Americans do every day. If you are reading this article, then I believe you should do two things: First, thank a school teacher for teaching you to read and write and, secondly, thank a U.S. military veteran for the fact that you arent reading this in German, Arabic or Chinese. Retired U.S. Air Force Colonel Walter Hitchcock stated Freedom Isnt Free. He was so right. Freedom is not free. For hundreds of years, ordinary men and women from Quincy, Havana, Chattahoochee, Midway, Greensboro and other small towns all over America have enlisted and served in peacetime and war. Many of those vets like the ones who went to Vietnam never returned. Others returned to protest and accusations of being baby-killers and murderers. The Bible teaches us there is a time for all things. Ecclesiastes 3:8 it says, A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace. War is inevitable. In 1991 I served in the U.S. Army Reserves with some of the finest men and women I have ever met. These men and women were black and white as well as Republican and Democrat. We were members of the 400th Military Police Co. (Prisoner of War Camp). Our unit was based in Tallahassee and, like all military reservists, we drilled one weekend a month and went out of town each summer for two weeks for our annual training. I had joined in 1985 to get money for college via the GI Bill. I followed a cousin, QFD Capt. Curtis Bridges Sr., after I learned hed joined a week earlier. My initial training took me Veterans Day is about servants, service Letters to the editorJesus prophesied before His return, the earth would be like it was in the days of Noah and in the days of Lot. In Noahs day there was excessive lovemaking, not giving their lives or bodies to God. In Lots day the people of Sodom and Gomorrah were perverted in their physical and sexual relations. Lust became a god. God stamped out the entire kingdom. America is following the days of Noah and Lot. Americans are living the same way as they did in the time of Noah and Lot. Advertising is excessively sex-related. Fashion designers are strongly sexrelated. Drugs are destroying our young and old people. God loves America but hates its sin.

A call to repentance GuestCOLUMN LAURA FINLEY, Ph.D. PeaceVoice In the last two weeks over a four-day period, 14 adults and seven children from four different states were killed in domestic violence-related murders. In Texas, police said a man with a long criminal history and a substance abuse problem went on a murder spree Oct. 26, killing his mother in the home he shared with her, then an aunt and three others. On Oct. 28, police officer Christopher Robinson shot and killed his ex-girlfriend and her firefighter boyfriend near Baltimore, Md. Robinson then committed suicide. In New York City, a relative hacked to pieces a mother and her four young children. Bryan Sweatt, who called 911 and told the operator he was stressed out, broke into his girlfriends home in Greenwood, S.C., where he duct-taped her then shot and killed her and four others, including two children, before killing himself. In the U.S, an estimated 1,300 people are killed each year from domestic violence. This is nine women each week. According to Futures Without Violence, in 2011, 1,707 women were murdered by men, and, of them, 1,509 were by people they knew. More than half of the homicides involved guns. These fatalities are preventable. Experts are clear that the best predictor of a domestic violence murder is a past history of domestic violence. Weapons in the home increase the risk of a fatality by a factor of 12. Guns are used in 92 percent of murder-suicides involving intimate partners. A history of domestic violence coupled with a difficult economic situation combines to dramatically increase the risk as well. Substance abuse also escalates the situation and is a factor in 40 percent of murder-suicides. What this tells me is that the U.S. needs to do far more to help families who are struggling. Rather than presume domestic violence to be a law enforcement problem, we need to think of it as a community problem, one that is integrally tied to supporting families. The U.S. currently ranks second to last among developed nations in terms of child poverty, according to a UNICEF report. A 2012 report called The State of Working America, 12th Edition found the U.S. to have higher poverty rates and weaker safety nets than peer countries. We are also the world leader in illegal drug abuse, and there are more guns in the country, and gun-related violence, than anywhere else.

game began. The Braves started the fourth quarter with a nice run, but Jajuan Perkins stepped up on third down and broke up a pass by the Braves quarterback. The Braves rolled the dice and went for it on fourth down; the pass first went through the hands of the initial receiver and was then caught by another receiver who happened to be in the right place at the right time. The Jaguars were able to dodge the bullet as the visiting team committed a few penalties and were forced to punt. East Gadsden made a change of quarterback and with 8:10 to go, the new quarterback stepped up and completed a big pass for a first down. With 5:55 to go in the game, the Jaguars scored the last points of the game as the running back ran hard into the end zone, and after an unsuccessful kick, East Gadsden pushed their lead to 14-6. With 25 seconds left in the game, Walton was inside the Jaguars 10-yard line and went for it on fourth and 3, but the Jaguars defense surged inside to stop the Braves before they could get the first down. The Jaguar offense took the field and ran the clock out. With the win, the Jaguars have earned themselves a spot in the postseason. Coach Laing said the kids were excited after the game knowing that they are in the post-season. Our team showed a lot of character tonight, and our kids have done an outstanding job this season. East Gadsden is now second in the district and will finish off the regular season this Thursday, Nov. 7, by going on the road to take on Rickards High School. Lets go out and support the Jaguars as they look to finish the regular season and prepare for the playoffs.

Last season was the first time the Rattlers and Lady Rattlers would hold both crowns together and this year, they added to the historic legacy. Guiding these teams are Wayne Angel and Darlene Moore, Ph.D. The teams have not only gotten it done on the field, but six of the runners also made the MEAC commissioners All-Academic team. Zenia George, Chandelic Jackson, Effiey Kosgei and Ciera Williams made the AllAcademic team from the womens side, while Kevin Marindich and McDaniel Olivier made it from the mens squad. On the course, the Rattlers made history by earning a No.9 ranking in the south region, as awarded by the United States Track and Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA). This is the first time a FAMU cross country team has registered on the poll. Powered by two-time USTFCCCA national athlete of the week and four-time MEAC Most Outstanding Athlete Elias Chesire, the Rattlers pulled off a huge upset, knocking of Florida State in the FSU Cross Country Invitational. The Rattlers made quick work of the MEAC championship, finishing in first through fourth places and defeating the second place Howard Bisons by twice the score. Chesire took his second consecutive cross country most outstanding athlete, after winning it in 2012 as well. Chesire, the junior runner from Eldoret, Kenya, led the charge, winning first place in 25:04.00 in the 8K race. Daniel Cheruiyot placed second for the Rattlers, coming in in 25:17.10. He was followed by teammates Kevin Marindich 25:27.90 and Geoffrey Sambu at 25:28.00. This combination represented four athletes with a combined perfect score of 10 points. Robyel Kidane took the No.20 slot in 27:14.20 to seal the victory for the Rattlers. Dieumy Duclos took the No.22 spot in 27:21.50. Angel was named Most Outstanding Coach by the MEAC, for the second consecutive year as well. He was pleased with the overall championship performance. Our team had an outstanding meet. We had the goal of taking the 1-23-4 sweep, which I thought we were capable of if we ran our race. The reality of it happening is something to behold. I was really pleased with how our Rattlers executed our strategy. They stayed on our race plan and the results reveal that they are a formidable force when they do that. Words can not express how proud I am of these young men. Back-to-back champions ... what more could you ask? Moore also earned her second consecutive Most Outstanding Coach award from the MEAC. For her career as a track and field/cross country coach, this was her 14th championship.

Its an incredibly lucrative crime, bringing quick, high profits with few start-up costs. Because of this, it has expanded into a huge network, second only to the drug trade. Florida Statutes 787.06 makes human trafficking illegal. Human trafficking facts:Eighty percent of victims are exploited as sexual slaves and 21 percent of them are children.Seventeen percent are trafficked to perform forced labor. Children make up 26 percent of forced labor.About 5.5 million children are victims of human trafficking at any given time.Two-thirds of human trafficking victims are women.Only one out of every 100 victims is ever rescued.One hundred sixty-one countries are affected by human trafficking, across every continent.Human trafficking networks generate about $32 billion in revenue a year Citizens can be aware of certain indicators that a person might be trafficked. Although these indicators are not conclusive, a call to law enforcement can trigger an investigation. Signs of human trafficking may include:Does the person work excessively long and/or unusual hours?Is the person inadequately dressed for the situation or work they do?Has the person or their family been threatened with harm?Is the person fearful, timid or submissive?Has the person been threatened with deportation?Is the person confused, afraid, or show signs of mental or physical abuse?Can the person freely contact friends or family?Is the person allowed to freely socialize or attend religious services? To increase awareness and bring this problem to the surface, the Quincy Police Department has placed posters and flyers targeting areas potential victims might frequent. The police department also has conducted training for officers on how to respond to a complaint of human trafficking. Citizens are encouraged to call The National Human Trafficking Hotline at 1-888-373-7888 or the Quincy Police Department at 850-627-7111.

Jefferson St. Once on scene, the officer made contact with a mother who was there to pick up her 3year-old daughter due to a call from the daycare owner earlier to come and pick the child up. The mother told the officer the door to the daycare was locked and the lights were off, giving her the impression that no one was there. The mother contacted members of her family and inquired if any of them had picked up her daughter prior to her arrival, and she was told that none of them had picked up Willa Nelson See QPD/ Page A28

When it comes to serving at my church, I have two jobs. As Ive mentioned before, Im a communion server. Im also emcee for the monthly senior ministry events, dinners and such. With a microphone in hand I quiet them down, tell a few senior-related jokes, dismiss the people at the tables to go get their food and introduce featured guests. Sometimes I refill cups of iced tea or clear plates away. Basically, I just show up and try not to mess things up so badly that God cant fix it. A few weeks ago we had our first seniors event of the 2013-14 season, an Italian dinner. I told the story of 82-year-old Morris who went to his doctor for a physical. A week or so later the doctor sees Morris walking through town with his arm around a gorgeous young woman. Looking good there, Morris, the doctor says. Just taking your advice, Doc, Morris tells him. You said, Get a hot mama and be cheerful. Thats not what I said, the doctor replies. I said youve got a heart murmur and to be careful! Thats funny when youre 65, 70 or 80. The room was packed with people, many of whom Ive known, at least by sight, for 20-plus years. A few have lost their spouses, which is sad. On the one hand, theyre getting out and socializing. On the other hand, theyre now alone, but not really because when two or more gather in Jesus name, especially in his house, Jesus shows up and joins in the activities and the table conversations. Usually at these senior events I, too, join in the conversation. However, on that particular evening I felt like watching, taking mental note of the goingson. I noted a lot of laughter, a lot of good-natured teasing of one another. You have to love someone and feel loved to be able to give and take teasing. The featured program of the evening was a five-part harmony group, five men who sang gospel songs. As they sang, I watched how people listened. There was some toe-tapping and moving of feet, some head nodding, some smiling. I felt removed from it all and quite clinical, as if I should be wearing a white lab coat and holding a clipboard, checking off boxes. And then Jesus showed up, not that he hadnt been there all along I just hadnt realized he had shown up for me.

WWW.GADCOTIMES.COMTHEGADSDENCOUNTYTIMES THURSDAY, NOVEMBER7, 2013 A7 More mentally ill people in the U.S. are in jails and prisons than in hospitals. Yet the U.S. leads the world in terms of the size, scope and expenditures on military and warfare. Had there been more help for these families, perhaps these atrocities would have been averted. Perhaps if these perpetrators had received more community-based support for their economic, substance abuse and mental health issues, 13 lives would have been saved. Should just some of the funds devoted to the military instead be devoted to family support services, who knows how many other lives could be saved. While there are services for victims, many times they are at capacity. A 2012 report by the National Network to End Domestic Violence found 10,471 unmet requests for services. Sometimes victims are treated in cold or demeaning ways by over-burdened and hyper-bureaucratic service providers, or they are told that they need to wait in long lines and jump a laundry list of hoops to get the services they are seeking. Instead of relying on social service agencies, victim services, too, should be seen as a community affair, one in which we all take responsibility for helping those in need.Laura Finley, Ph.D., teaches in the Barry University Department of Sociology & Criminology and is syndicated by PeaceVoice.

to Fort McClellan in Anniston, Ala., for basic and military police training. The training was difficult and the summer of was blistering hot in North Alabama. Even so, I enjoyed the challenge and made friends with other young men from all over the country. I learned that folks in northern cities like Boston didnt know what grits were. Can you believe that? They said they thought they were something called cream of wheat. But once we Southern boys showed em how to smother their eggs with grits and add a little salt and pepper, they were hooked. I finished my basic training and military police (MP) training and returned home to continue my education at FAMU. I signed an eight-year contract, which was set up as six years in the active reserves and two years in the inactive reserves. Between joining in 1985 and 1991 my military service in the reserves went just fine. If you ever saw the 1981 military comedy movie Stripes with Bill Murray, you can understand what the Army Reserves was like. Weekend warriors is what our active-duty brothers in the Army called us. And I have to be honest since we werent in the active military training daily some of our uniforms fit a little tighter than our active duty counterparts. To say we were a little rag-tag might put it mildly. Some of the guys in our unit took their service seriously, and to others it was a joke; just a way to get a check and maybe some benefits. Well, all the jokes and laughing stopped in the fall of 1990. In the fall of 1990. Saddam Hussein invaded the small oilproducing nation of Kuwait. After months of negotiation and countless attempts to convince Saddam to retreat, all political and diplomatic efforts failed. U.S. President George H.W. Bush decided hed had enough and opted to proceed to Plan B to prove to Mr. Hussein the might of the United States of America. I watched television intently while all this developed. Id been working as a police officer with the Tallahassee Police Department during this time. Shortly after the U.S. commenced military actions in the Gulf Region, a funny thing happened but it wasnt so funny. I got a letter in the mail. It was from the U.S. Department of Defense better known as Uncle Sam. My unit, the 400th, was being called to active duty military service. Seems there were only two or three reserve units in the entire country that had special training to detain and secure wartime enemy prisoners of war and guess who was in one. I wont bore you with all the details, but we deployed to Saudi Arabia in early 1991 and went from Khobar Towers to the deserts of Riyadh. We were attached to the 101st Airborne Division from Fort Campbell, Ky. You would think that our unit of misfits and outof-shape middle-aged men and women who couldnt all pass the Army height/weight standards or the PT test would have revolted and resisted being deployed into such a dangerous situation. If you think that, you are wrong. You see, most people who join the military might not be the smartest or voted most likely to succeed, but one thing I can say about men and women who volunteer for military service is that, for the most part, they have character and courage. Those six months in 1991 from January to June was one of the proudest periods in my life. We guarded and detained over 15,000 Iraqi POWs with professionalism, dedication and compassion. I saw young people (including myself) face and conquer fears and grow up. I saw whites and blacks forget about race and work together to find solutions because we knew all our butts were on the line. I also saw the faces of thousands of Iraqi soldiers defeated and humiliated. As the prison compound sergeant, I had the first intake station the prisoners came to when we in-processed them into our facility. They were stripsearched, debriefed by military intelligence, seen by medical professionals, issued medicine and prison uniforms and assigned prison areas. To my knowledge no troops under my command abused any POWs. Upon returning home, we were treated to a heros welcome to include a parade. I cant tell you how good it felt, if only for a month or so, to be treated like a hero. I was also so happy that some of the men in our unit who had also served in Vietnam could get the welcome home they didnt get in the late s after Nam. Jesus said, But he that is greatest among you shall be your servant. Wow, now that sounds strange. In America where basketball, baseball and football stars are paid millions of dollars a year to play games of entertainment. And how do some of them repay society and show their appreciation? They tell the world that they are not role models. They party and sometimes forget to pay their child support. They buy mansions and more cars than they can drive, only to go broke and file for bankruptcy. Come on America. Lets get it together and take care of the people who really take care of us. No person serving in the military should have to be on or qualify for food stamps. Unless you have served and been in harms way, you really dont understand the price our veterans have paid. Some paid with their lives and others with their limbs. I can tell you what it feels like to watch SCUD missiles intended to kill you blown up in the night sky of war. I can tell you what it feels like to see men break due to the enormous emotional weight of war and separation from family. So lets stop judging people and try a little love and compassion. So on this Veterans Day lets do the right thing and remember to tell a veteran Thank You! VeteransContinued from Page A4A8THEGADSDENCOUNTYTIMES THURSDAY, NOVEMBER7, 2013 WWW.GADCOTIMES.COM Journeymen, began singing Jesus Loves Me. At first, my jaded, too cool for school attitude got the best (or maybe the worst) of me, and I silently snickered. Really? Jesus Loves Me? Yes, the men sang. Yes, Jesus loves me. Little ones to him belong. (Hmmm. Im little, I thought.) They are weak (Thats me) but he is strong (Yeah, but is he strong enough to break through my hard heart?) Yes, Jesus loves me. (I hear you, but how can that be when I dont love him like I should?) As they sang, line by line, it was as if Jesus himself slipped into the seat next to me, leaned over and whispered, This ones for you. I felt my frosty heart warm just a bit. Im a tough cookie and I keep people and Jesus at arms length for the most part, but every once in a while Jesus shows up and I have a moment. And then the song and the moment ended, but not really because Im still thinking about it. When Jesus shows up, he brings grace and mercy with him. He breaks through your strongest defenses and touches the parts of you deep inside that you hadnt even known had been damaged. When Jesus shows up, without a word, except for maybe the words of a simple childrens song, he lets you know that he hears your prayers, even the ones you dare not pray lest you be disappointed. When Jesus shows up and you have a moment, even when the moment ends, it never really ends because you carry it with you so whenever you start thinking youll never be as faithful as you want to be, thats when you remember, Yes, Jesus loves me, and ultimately everything will be OK. And you know its true. Nancy Kennedy is the author of Move Over, Victoria I Know the Real Secret, Girl on a Swing, and her latest book, Lipstick Grace.

Why the holiday grind may be damaging your teeth and more Physicians say stress, joy and caffeine can all lead to teeth-grindingThe holiday season seems to start earlier and earlier each year which, for many people, means longer and longer periods of heightened stress, say integrated health specialists Dr. Michael Gelb and Dr. Howard Hindin. For many people, stress causes teeth grinding bruxism during the day or while theyre asleep at night, and its not as innocuous as it sounds. It not only wears down the enamel of the teeth, it can cause headaches, muscle pain and disrupted sleep, which leads to daytime drowsiness and irritability, says Dr. Hindin of the Hindin Center for Whole Health Dentistry (www.hindincenter.com), who partners with Dr. Gelb in tackling chronic disease with multidisciplinary approaches. Bruxism is the third most frequent abnormal sleep behavior sleep-talking and sleep-walking are other examples and the No. 1 reason patients come to my clinic, even though theyre often not aware theyre grinding, says Dr. Gelb of The Gelb Center in New York (www.gelbcenter.com), a holistic dentist known worldwide for pioneering integrative treatments. Stress is generally the cause of daytime teeth grinding, which is an involuntary clenching of the jaws. But great joy can be a cause, too. Nighttime grinding can have many causes or no clear cause at all. Hindin and Gelb share some of the causes of teeth-grinding and what people can do about it: One in 4 people with obstructive sleep apnea are bruxers: Like nighttime teeth grinding, people with sleep apnea are often unaware they have a problem, so if the grinding leads to a diagnosis of sleep apnea, it could save the persons life. People with untreated sleep apnea can stop breathing hundreds of times a night. Those with severe cases are 46 percent more likely to die prematurely, according to a study published in 2009 in PLOS Medicine journal. Your doctor or dentist should explore the possibility of obstructive sleep apnea as a potential cause of your bruxism, says Hindin. Caffeine, alcohol, cigarette smoking and hypertension are all linked to increased incidence of bruxism: People who have a drink before they go to bed and people who ingest caffeine are more likely to be teeth grinders, with the likelihood increasing the more a person consumes. Cigarette smoking and high blood pressure are also associated with teeth grinding, as are certain drugs used to treat depression. Nighttime dental guards are just one option for treatment: Depending on the cause of the bruxism, there are a variety of treatment options, ranging from dental guards to botox injections to anti-anxiety medications. To effectively address the problem, the cause needs to be diagnosed if possible and treated, says Gelb. Bruxism can cause irreversible damage to your teeth, TMJ disorders and other problems and, as Hindin pointed out, it can be a sign of a more serious underlying problem, so it shouldnt be ignored. But that doesnt mean that everyone who grinds is in for a hefty medical bill. For some people, treatment may be as simple as a $10 night guard purchased at the drug store although a custom-fitted night guard is best. 000GD3Y To Our Gadsden County and Midway WASTE PRO CUSTOMERS There will be no changes to your solid waste collection for the Veterans Day Holiday on Monday, November 11, 2013.

Last spring, Bainbridge State College sophomore Stevenson Crowell had to sit out the Colleges study aboard trip to Belize. But not this upcoming springs trip. Everybody tells me it is a really great experience, the Bainbridge resident said. I always wanted to travel outside the country. This is my chance. Crowell is trying to build up his savings for the estimated $2,400 cost of the trip, and he is joining other students planning to sell poinsettias during the holidays and is trying to get scholarships in order to make his first trip outside of the United States. Scheduled from Feb. 28 through March 8, Bainbridge State students taking the trip to Belize can earn credit in four different courses; education, environmental sciences, biology and anthropology. For Crowell, the trip will offer him a chance to learn under Dr. Jenny Harper, a Bainbridge State faculty member who will lead environmental and marine science classes and who is a marine biologist, which Crowell plans to pursue a bachelors in marine sciences next year at Savannah State University. Some of the highlights will be snorkeling over coral reefs along the coast of Ambergris Caye and touring a manatee sanctuary. However, Belize is not the only opportunity Bainbridge State students may travel as part of a study aboard program. Victoria Dewick of Bainbridge, a sophomore studying business administration, is preparing for the Colleges program studying history and literature in Scotland from May 10 to 24. It just seemed like a good opportunity to broaden my perspective of the world, said Dewick, a Connecticut native who has never been on an airplane and has never traveled outside of the East Coast. I am really, really excited about going, she said. She is working two jobs trying to save up the money for the $2,995 cost of the trip. Students may earn credit in two summer semester courses: Rebel, Kings and Witches: U.S. and Scotland before 1865, which is designed to count for either U.S. History 1 or Western Civilization I; and, From Fairyland to Hogwarts: The Fantasy Worlds of Scottish Writers, which is a British Literature II course. Dr. Dave Nelson, associate professor of history at Bainbridge State, serves as the program director for the Scotland Study Abroad Program through the University System of Georgias European Council, which is available to all students in the states 31 institutions. The courses have an online component before and after the trip. Students are scheduled to visit Edinburgh, Scotland, in the first week, and Glasgow during the second week. There is also time for students to take side trips, such as to the Scottish Highlands and even to St. Andrews. After taking students overseas, especially students who have never been out of the country before, they are more appreciative of their lives here and much more energized with their studies, said Dr. Nelson, who has led students overseas five times, four of those to Scotland. Bainbridge State student Julie Darley of Bainbridge is a psychology major and is interested in Belizes school system. I am also looking forward to observing society as a whole because I understand that unlike our society, the Belizeans do not discriminate by race, Darley said. It goes without saying the sheer beauty of the country is a strong pull. I am so excited to have this opportunity. Dr. Harper said the schedule they keep their students on is very tight. We take care of every single thing, Dr. Harper said. Theres no time to get into any trouble because we run a tight ship. For example, the student traveling to Belize will get to see Mayan ruins, rainforests, various marine sanctuaries and archeological sites. Education majors will spend time in classrooms as part of their observation requirements, and students in the science tracts will sit in on Corozal Junior College classes. Valley Rogers, associate professor of education at Bainbridge State, has led a group to Belize for four years. She warns her students that they are not on vacation, but they are constantly doing things and learning new things. The study aboard program is something you cannot get from a classroom, Rogers said.

I appreciate the incredible amount of feedback we have received and I want to thank everyone who took the time to send an email, comment on the website or attend one of the public meetings and share their suggestions, said Commissioner of Education Pam Stewart. With input from so many Floridians, we can ensure these are the best standards for Floridas students. Floridas standards, including the mathematics and English language arts standards adopted by the State Board of Education in 2010, are statelevel expectations of what students should know at each grade level. Decisions about specific curriculums and instructional materials are made by local school districts and educators.

The statewide organization won the American Farm Bureau Federations 2013 State Awards of Excellence in all six categories of operations evaluated. Announced recently, the awards recognize outstanding work in member services, membership initiatives, education and outreach, leadership development, policy development and implementation and public relations and communications. I am proud of the dedication and superb effort that made these honors possible, said Florida Farm Bureau President John Hoblick. Our state board members, our county Farm Bureau leaders, our members at large and our state staff have all contributed as a unified team. Because of their hard work collectively, we have received the awards as an organization. They make Florida Farm Bureau one of the best member service associations in our nation. A panel of judges selected from across the nation determined the award designations. American Farm Bureau Federation officials will present the awards during the national groups annual meeting in San Antonio in January.

Billy Graham has preached to more people in live audiences than anyone elsemore than 210 million people in more than 185 countries and territories, not to mention those he has reached through TV, video and film. Born November 7, 1918, in Charlotte, North Carolina, Graham grew up during the Depression and graduated from the Florida Bible Institute in 1940 and Wheaton College in 1943. In 1950, he founded the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association. Graham has written 17 books, all top sellers; counseled presidents; and received many, many honors and awards. What do you do when youre in the middle of World War II, you need a plane that can carry supplies, and you can only use wood to build it? Shipping magnate Henry Kaiser came up with the idea for a plane that could meet all those requirements. He met with Howard Hughes, the owner of an aircraft company, to discuss the project, and they decided to build the HK-1. When Kaiser withdrew from the project, the plane became the H-4 Hercules and was nicknamed the Spruce Goose. Hughes received a defense contract to build the plane that more than 400 engineers and 650 craftsmen would work on. The wingspan was 320 feet, the molded plywood panels were shaped by hand, and most of the plane was assembled using special waterproof glue. The plane had eight 3,000-horsepower engines and could carry two 30-ton tanks or 750 troops. In 1944, defense officials canceled the contract, but because most of the money had been used, Hughes was told to finish one plane for testing. Eventually, Hughes spent more than $7 million of his own money and $22 million of the governments. However, World War II ended before the plane was finished.

Sunrise in Belize STUDYContinued from Page A11 EarthTalk E The Environmental MagazineDear EarthTalk: Can you discuss pollutants in car interior materials, and also pollution inside cars originating from gasoline and diesel exhausts outside the car? Mervyn Kline, Philadelphia, PA The interior of your car may seem like a safe haven from air pollution, but it may actually be quite the opposite. Chemicals emanating from the steering wheel, dashboard, armrests and seats mix with the airborne pollution being generated under the hood to form a witchs brew of toxins for those riding inside. Research shows that vehicle interiors contain a unique cocktail of hundreds of toxic chemicals that off-gas in small, confined spaces, says Jeff Gearhart of the Ecology Center, a Michigan-based nonprofit. The extreme air temperatures inside cars on sunny days can increase the concentration of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) and break other chemicals down into more toxic constituents. Some of the worst offenders include airborne bromine, chlorine, lead and other heavy metals. Since these chemicals are not regulated, consumers have no way of knowing the dangers they face, adds Gearhart. Exhaust fumes also find their way into the passenger cabins of many cars. The International Center for Technology Assessment (ICTA) found that concentrations of carbon monoxide (a noxious by-product of internal combustion known to cause headaches, dizziness, nausea and fatigue as well as being a major asthma trigger) may be 10 times higher inside any given car than outdoors along the roadside. ICTA added that in light of the fact that the average American spends an hour and a half driving around each day, in-car air pollution may pose one of the greatest modern threats to human health. To help consumers minimize their exposure, the Ecology Center released the fourth version of its Consumer Guide to Toxic Chemicals in Cars in 2012, comparing over 200 different cars across the 2010 and 2011 model years. Those scoring the most kudos in regard to interior air quality include the Honda Civic, Toyota Prius and Honda CR-Z. The Civic scored first by being free of brominebased flame retardants (BFRs) in interior components, utilizing polyvinyl chloride (PVC)-free interior fabrics and trim, and having low levels of heavy metals. Meanwhile, pulling up the rear were Mitsubishis Outlander Sport, the Chrysler 200 SC and the Kia Soul. The Outlander finished in last place due to its use of BFRS as well as antimonybased flame retardants in its interior, chromium treated leather components and excessive amounts of lead in seating materials. The good news is overall vehicle ratings are improving, reports the Ecology Center, adding that the top performers have gotten rid of BFRs and PVC altogether in their interiors. Today, 17 percent of new vehicles have PVC-free interiors and 60 percent are produced without BFRs. Consumers can check on their late model car by steering their web browser to the HealthyStuff.org website, the Ecology Centers free online resource for consumer information. While environmental and public health groups are working to try to get automakers to clean up their interiors, individuals can reduce their exposure by parking in the shade, using interior sun reflectors to keep temperatures down inside the car and rolling down the windows to let the fresh air in.

Child molesters or pedophiles, (pronounced PED-oh-files), are one of the most hated and feared groups of sexual criminals there are. Because they target vulnerable children who innocently trust and believe in them, they are able to persuade them to do sexual acts that turn the pedophile on, but sicken the rest of society. In order to understand the issue of curing pedophiles, you need to know that there is no known scientifically proven way to change a persons sexual interests the things that sexually excite them. So if a man is really excited by dressing like Tarzan and swinging from the chandeliers, theres no way to make him not excited by that. If a man is turned on by peeping into windows to watch women undressing, theres no way to take that desire away. And if a man is interested sexually in children, unfortunately, theres no way to make him not sexually interested in children. However, as people, we can (and do) make decisions not to do the things we would like to do or the things that might be a turnon for the moment. A young man may decide to back off from a sexual situation even though he believes a woman has led him on, and he really wants to continue. Alcoholics can make decisions not to drink, even though they may really feel a need to. People decide not to hit or even kill other people when theyre very, very angry with them, even when they have had an anger control problem. How do they do this, in spite of a strong drive to do what would bring them pleasure at the moment? They learn ways to do something else healthier instead. The young man learns to back off, go home and exercise. The alcoholic learns not to go near bars or visit Aunt Suzy who drinks too much herself. An alcoholic learns to call her sponsor if she thinks she is headed toward drinking. The person with anger control issues learns relaxation exercises to calm down, or learn to talk to someone when angry. Every day, someone with an unhealthy urge learns ways to divert, control and redirect those impulses. Can a pedophile do that? Perhaps, under the right circumstances. What are the right circumstances? Consistent and long-term dedication to the goal, consistent and long-term ability to see and understand the consequences of failure, and consistent and long-term participation in structured, reality-oriented, and frequent sexual therapy specifically for sexual offenders. Could the therapy fail? Absolutely. Should you trust a pedophile completely because they have undergone the above therapy or are currently having this therapy? I would not, just because of the seriousness of the crime. Is it possible, however, that some can be cured? Yes, if we say that cured means they do not do it again. But we would only know that in looking back after some period of time has gone by. Its a sad statement for all concerned. For now, this is all we have. And the hope that in the future there will be better answers.

Read the Florida Hospice Month declaration from Gov. Rick Scott at http://bit.ly/1bySQGJ/. Hospice is a type of care that offers people care, chosen by them, at the end of their life. To be eligible for hospice, a patient must have a life-limiting terminal illness that puts their life expectancy within six months or less. In Florida, some private pay insurers allow for a year or less. Palliative care can offer some of the same types of services that hospice does, but it is provided to everyone, no matter the diagnosis or life expectancy. Hospice and palliative care regard dying as a natural process. The goal of hospice and palliative care is to achieve the best possible quality of life through relief of suffering, control of symptoms and restoration of functional capacity while remaining sensitive to personal, cultural and religious values, beliefs and practices. The highly specialized and unique array of hospice and palliative care services creates an environment which encourages the patient to express what is in the heart, focus on love and forgiveness, and on lifes meaning and purpose. When things need to be said, issues resolved and dreams fulfilled, hospice will be there.

If very specific conditions are met, Medicare will help pay for all or a portion of a short stay in a skilled nursing facility, hospice care or home health care. Medicare does not cover custodial long-term care services. These services and supports help people perform Activities of Daily Living (ADLs) that are non-medical, such as getting in and out of bed, walking, bathing, dressing, eating, and bowel and bladder management.Medicaidonlyavailableifincome andassetsarelowenoughMedicaid is a joint federal and state government program that helps people with low income and assets pay for some or all of their health care bills. It covers medical care, long-term care services in nursing homes and long-term care services provided at home. Rules about who is eligible for Medicaid benefits and what services are covered are based on federal requirements, but states have con siderable leeway in how they operate their programs. To be eligible for Medicaid, you must meet certain require ments, including having income and assets that do not exceed the levels used by your state. The Medicaid eligibility process considers the value of your home to make sure it is under the state set limit, your assets and your income. Documentation from your financial institutional looking back five years will be required.

If you receive Medicaid coverage for long-term care services, federal law requires states to recover the amount Medicaid spent FAMILY FEATURES There are important realities every American must know about long-term care. Longterm care is more expensive than most people think. And, most impor tantly, the cost of care is usually paid for out of savings and income. About 70 percent of people turn ing 65 can expect to need some kind of long-term care as they age. A number of public programs, includ ing Medicare and Medicaid, may help pay for some long-term care services under certain circum stances. However, each program has specific rules about what services are covered, how long you can receive benefits, whether or not you qualify for benefits, and how much you have to pay in out-of-pocket costs. To accurately plan for your long-term care needs, it is very important to know the facts about what may or may not be covered. onyourbehalffromyourestateafteryoudie.Most statesrecoverthecostoflong-termcareservices.Payingout-of-pocketforcareIf you have enough income and savings, you will need to pay for long-term care services on your own, from your incomes, savings and, possibly, the equity in your home. Many people believe wrongly the medical insurance or disability insur ance they currently have will pay for all or much of their long-term care. In general, health insur ance covers only very limited and specific types of long-term care. Disability policies serve to replace income and, as such, do not cover longterm care at all. Long-term care insurance is designed to cover CalculatingthecostBecause there are many kinds of long-term care services and supports, there is a wide range of costs depending on the type of care needed, duration of care needed, provider you choose and where you live.

WWW.GADCOTIMES.COMTHEGADSDENCOUNTYTIMES THURSDAY, NOVEMBER7, 2013 A17 Grand opening planned for historic Greensboro Depot At 3 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 9, the West Gadsden Historical Society (WGHS) will celebrate the grand opening of the recently restored historic Greensboro Depot located beside the Apalachicola Northern Railroad (AN RR) at 115 Duffle Ave., Greensboro. At the same time, the newly constructed adjacent classroom building, which has been named the Patricia Fletcher Vice Meeting Facility, will be dedicated in her memory. The depot was built in 1907 and is the only remaining original depot on the AN RR line. After the close of the depot for railroad purposes, it was bought by Nelson Clark and used as a barber shop and also a thrift shop by area United Methodist churches. Several years ago the old depot building site was in the direct path of a transmission line to be built through the Town of Greensboro along the AN RR right-of-way. WGHS members saw the need to advocate for the saving of this piece of history. Through the efforts of WGHS working with Progress Energy and St. Joe Land Company, the historic depot was saved and moved to another location adjacent to the tracks. WGHS received a grant through the U.S. Dept. of Transportation and was able to restore the depot and construct the adjoining classroom building. Now the work begins in order for it to become a first-class railroad museum. It will not be only for items pertaining to the AN RR, but will include any railroad items. Anyone with copies of old AN RR or any train and depot photos, documents, newspaper clippings, or any artifacts that they would like to share, please contact WGHS. Any items you might have that you wish to donate or loan to this museum will be greatly appreciated. The public is invited to the Grand Opening and Dedication on Nov. 9. Contact WGHS at info@gadsdenhistory.org, 850-442-6434, or P.O. Drawer D, Greensboro, FL 32330 for more information. The recently restored Greensboro Depot, pictured here, will be the center of attention during a grand opening event Nov. 9 hosted by the West Gadsden Historical Society.

A18THEGADSDENCOUNTYTIMES THURSDAY, NOVEMBER7, 2013 WWW.GADCOTIMES.COM BRYAN WELCHMother Earth NewsMy family has never been the kind that passes along tracts of land or rooms full of antique furniture. Our family legacies take shape in more subtle ways through skills, stories and tools, and through working with our hands. The first installment of my inheritance arrived in the form of a homemade toolbox crafted from a few pieces of 1by-6-inch lumber and a single bent piece of sheet metal. Its handle was made from a strip of aluminum enclosed in an old piece of garden hose, and I still carry it that way. When I got the box, it contained half a dozen rusty open-end wrenches; a ruined pocket knife; an ancient ice pick; a crescent wrench; two box-end wrenches; a whetstone; four hole punches; several tiny, worn-out screwdrivers; a fine pair of antediluvian linemans pliers; and three hose clamps of obsolete design. There was also a little wooden-handled knife that looked as though it once might have been a farriers knife, designed to trim animal hooves. By the time the knife came to me, the end of its blade had been broken, so the tools origin was hard to determine. I first saw that knife in my grandfathers hand or it could have been my dads. Ive had the toolbox and its cargo since about 1978, when my grandfather died. Theyve resided in sheds or garages in a dozen different towns in nine states spread from the Pacific Coast to the Atlantic, from Minnesota down to the Mexican border. Still, the toolbox smells like a particular place: the storeroom in the back of my grandparents house. It smells of wet sand and used oil, cobwebs and dry rot. Its a smell that conjures home for me. My dad recently saw the old toolbox in the back of my car and asked why I was hauling it around. I told him I loved working with tools he and my grandfather had used, and that I was writing about old tools. You want our old tools? he said. I think I have a bunch downstairs. An hour later, he called me. I have a treasure trove for you. These were all your grandpas tools. I can picture him being so happy that you want them. Theyre in a box here. Youll be pleasantly surprised when you see them. Im not a collector of anything. In fact, Im generally a bad custodian of physical possessions. I lose stuff. I break stuff. I spill stuff on other stuff. My brother is a collector, and I think he would say I dont Will your landscape survive a storm? Storms in all shapes and forms create havoc throughout the country. One of the greatest dangers posed by storms is presented by falling trees. Unsafe trees are a threat to lives and property. Many shade and ornamental trees are damaged throughout the year by windstorms, lightning or ice and snow accumulations, notes Tchukki Andersen, CTSP*, Board Certified Master Arborist and staff arborist with the Tree Care Industry Association. Damage usually consists of a few broken branches. However, more severe damage such as splitting or pulling apart of branch unions, removal of large areas of bark, twisting and splitting of the trunk, or even uprooting pose possible dangers. A few tree species, including Chinese elm, silver maple, boxelder and various poplars, have brittle wood that is easily broken. These rapidly growing trees cause a considerable amount of damage to homes, cars, buildings and utility lines each year. Homeowners should be aware of these characteristics and avoid planting them close to potential targets. If such trees are already growing in these locations, preventive pruning, bracing or cabling may help reduce storm damage. This is particularly true as the tree grows in size and the weight and surface of the leaf and branch area increases. Over the years, growing trees will catch more wind and become heavier, so they are prone to increased mechanical stresses, thus increasing the chances of failure. Larger trees will also affect an increased area should they or their larger limbs fall. This means that power lines, homes and other structures that might not have been threatened a few years ago might suddenly be under threat by a tree that has grown. Preparing trees for these natural disasters is a must and should be done well in advance of the stormy season. To help ease these dangers, have a professional arborist evaluate your trees. Doing this will help you determine potential weaknesses and dangers. Look at your trees for the following warning signs:Wires in contact with tree branches. Trees may become energized when they are contacted by electric wires.Dead or partially attached limbs hung up in the higher branches that could fall and cause damage or injury.Cracked stems and branch forks that could cause catastrophic failure of a tree section.Hollow or decayed areas on the trunk or main limbs, or mushrooms growing from the bark that indicate a decayed and weakened stem.Peeling bark or gaping wounds in the trunk also indicate structural weakness.Fallen or uprooted trees putting pressure on other trees beneath them.Tight, V-shaped forks which are much more prone to failure than open U-shaped ones.Heaving soil at the tree base is a potential indicator of an unsound root system. Remember, too, that a tree is a living thing, and its integrity and stability change over time, so dont assume that a tree that has survived 10 severe storms will necessarily survive an 11th. A professional arborist can assess your landscape and work with you to determine the best trees to plant. Contact the Tree Care Industry Association, a public and professional resource on trees and arboriculture since 1938. An easy way to find a tree care service provider in your area is to use the Locate Your Local TCIA Member Companies program. You can use this service by calling 1-800733-2622 or by doing a ZIP Code search on www.treecaretips.org.

Photo by Matthew Stallbaumer One family makes use of three generations of tools See TOOLS/ Page A24 Thats the title of my new book, and its filled with hope for the disorganized. The subtitle of the book is: Reformed Slob Shares 80 Secrets to a clean, cozy, peaceful home. Remember the old fable about the grasshopper and the ants? As its been told in English, Greek, Latin and German, the grasshopper goofed off singing, dancing and playing his fiddle while the ants worked relentlessly gathering food for the winter. While the grasshopper was socializing, the ants were organizing. The organized ants warned the procrastinating grasshopper that hed be sorry when winter came. According to the fable, when the snows fell, the grasshopper got cold and hungry and had to beg for food from the ants. We come away from the fable thinking the grasshopper was wrong, that he should have pulled his weight in the summer so he could make it through the winter. The way the tale is spun, its about the hazards of playing and enjoying life and the attributes of working hard and being organized. That spin has been around for centuries and has caused millions to put get organized on the I top of their New Years Resolution list. Its obvious the ant colonies of the world have a great lobby. The lessons that failed to come out of that fable were about imbalance, lack of appreciation, and low self-esteem. Its about the inability of the ants to find joy and appreciate the music and entertainment given by the grasshopper and the grasshoppers failure to assert himself and show the ants his importance as a musician and happy companion. The ants should have been the ones to be warned that if they didnt find balance between work and play they might have food, but they could easily end up on a shrinks couch in search of meaning. All work and no play makes for very dull ants. The ants missed their opportunity to be entertained and be joyful. With a better selfimage, the grasshopper would have been able to suggest helping the ants relax and The joy of being disorganized Pam YoungMAKE IT FUN! See YOUNG/ Page A27

A20THEGADSDENCOUNTYTIMES THURSDAY, NOVEMBER7, 2013 WWW.GADCOTIMES.COM FAMILY FEATURES Filled with mesmerizing trinkets and gadgets your home is a new and exciting world for your small child to explore. But this new world can introduce serious and sometimes surprising safety issues that many parents do not realize are risks. HiddenconcernsincommonhouseholddevicesAs your children happily toddle around your home, they may come in contact with unknown safety issues scattered throughout. One issue you may not have considered is coin lithium batteries, about the size of a nickel, which can be found around most homes in everyday items like remote controls, keyless entry devices for your car, sound-enabled books and a variety of health and fitness devices. Because many of these devices are not regulated as childrens toys, the battery compartments often are very easy to open. Children are naturally drawn to these devices, as many include buttons that are fun to play with and push. The danger of these batteries is very real. If a coin-sized lithium battery is swallowed by a small child, it can get caught in the esophagus. The battery can react with saliva and cause a chemical reaction that can lead to severe injuries in as little as two hours. Unfortunately, many parents do not know about the issue. In fact, a recent survey showed 62 percent of parents reported being unaware of the risk associated with coin lithium batteries. SpreadthewordIn an effort to help keep children safe, Energizer and the National Safety Council are working together to educate parents and caregivers on the steps they can take to help prevent these injuries. We know parents and caregivers are constantly thinking about their childrens safety, but we want to bring awareness to an issue still unknown to many families, said Amy Heinzen, Program Manager of Grants and Strategic Initiatives for the National Safety Council. Coin lithium battery safety needs to be top of mind and we hope parents will take the time to learn about the issue with these four simple steps to help children be safe. The4SsofcoinlithiumbatterysafetyMake your home safer and spread awareness with four simple steps to store, select, secure and share information about this hidden safety concern.Store.Awareness of the issue is a good start, but mak ing sure you have a game plan is even better. If you currently have coin lithium batteries in your home, store them where little hands cant get them and little eyes cant see them. Its also important to not let children use devices powered by these batteries as toys. In fact, 45 percent of parents admit to letting their kids play with their keys, remotes and similar devices, which could very likely include a coin lithium battery. Select.When you are in need of coin lithium batteries, it is important to do your research in advance, and select battery packaging that meets the strict guidelines set by the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) for child resistance. Energizer was the first to introduce 20 millimeter coin lithium battery packaging that meets these criteria, restricting a childs ability to get in the package, while still allow ing adults to easily open it with scissors.Secure.If the battery compartment door opens in the hands of a child, it becomes a potential hazard. It is essential to secure the battery doors of all devices powered by coin lithium batteries, including the key less entry devices found on most car keys. You can also look for devices that feature a screwed back for additional security. Share.Finally, you are encouraged to share this information, whether online with your friends, at playgroups or daycare, so every family can take the same steps to protect their children. From flashlights to smoke alarm batteries to coin lithium battery packaging, we are always looking for ways our products can help keep families safe, said Brad Harrison, Vice President of Marketing for Energizer North America. It is our hope that by bringing awareness to this issue and being the first battery company to offer packaging that meets federal safety standards, more children can be safe.

WWW.GADCOTIMES.COMTHEGADSDENCOUNTYTIMES THURSDAY, NOVEMBER7, 2013 A21 By TIM LINAFELT For all the talk of Heisman candidates, blowout victories and national title aspirations befitting of the 1990s, the 2013 Florida State football team entered Saturday night with a glaring spot on its 90sera checklist un lled. Any Seminoles team, whether it be in 1993, 1999 or any of the other great teams in-between, holding national championship intentions rst had to go through the Miami Hurricanes. And more often than not, they had to do it on a stage similar to the one featured at Doak Campbell Stadium on Saturday. These Seminoles crossed that checkpoint off their list with a 41-14 victory over sixth-ranked Miami that was yet another indication that this a season unlike any weve seen around here in quite a while. I believe you can go 2-10 as long as you beat a team like Miami and Florida. Thats what people around here want, senior defender Lamarcus Joyner said. For us to be able to have success and knock off a powerhouse like that, its like the old days. Old days, indeed. Florida State, of course, has never won a national championship without first beating the Hurricanes. And Miami has infamously (and sometimes singularly) prevented the Seminoles from earning more crystal footballs than the two they already have. Which is why, despite an eyebrow-raising point spread, this game meant an awful lot. The Miami of 2013 may not quite be the Miami of old, but the last dozen years of FSU football teams can tell you how tough it is to get off to a 7-0 start, regardless of how they got there. And the laws of college football rivalries suggested that the Hurricanes who showed up in Tallahassee would play much better than the iteration that struggled past North Carolina and Wake Forest. We saw that almost immediately, when Miami answered FSUs 13-play, 72-yard touchdown drive with an 11-play, 50-yard possession that ended without points but announced its intentions to not be bullied by the Seminoles. Miami countered FSUs blows by taking advantage of two Jameis Winston interceptions, rst to tie the game at 7-7 and later to cut its halftime de cit to 21-14 just moments after the Seminoles appeared ready to put the game out of reach. With UM down a touchdown and set to receive the ball to start the second half, a sense of unease wormed its way into the record crowd of 84,409. But it was then that this years Seminoles showed off another trait shared with their 1990s brethren their resolve. Just as the 1993 team needed Charlie Wards 79-yard swing pass to Warrick Dunn to put away Florida and the 1999 team requiread a second-half rally to overcome an 11point de cit at Clemson, FSU on Saturday night entered the third quarter in need of a quick stop and some quick points. They got the former when senior Terrence Brooks went unblocked on a safety blitz, bringing down UM quarterback Stephen Morris and coaxing an intentional grounding penalty in the process. They got the latter a few moments later thanks to a 10-play, 83yard drive punctuated by James Wilder Jr.s ve-yard touchdown run, the rst of 20 unanswered points in the second half. It was one of four FSU scoring drives of 10 or more plays. It was scary out there, Joyner said. It was emotional, it was hard-nosed football and we needed that test. The 1993 Seminoles entered their season with an eye on a national championship, but it wasnt until a 28-10 win over Miami the same team that had wrecked their hopes by a combined four points in 1 and that the dream began to feel real. For this team, that moment probably occurred two weeks ago in Clemson. But the fact remains that these Seminoles were never going to get where they want to be without rst beating Miami. People like to say its just another game, but when youre in the state of Florida, its not, defensive tackle Timmy Jernigan said. When youre playing Florida, youre playing Miami, its not just another game. Its a must. Youve got to have it. By MARTY COHEN I have been analyzing and searching for solutions and cures for the myriad ills that surround this team. Beyond many of thecurrent ideas, positive and negative, we decided to scratch the memory bank and history books as we often do to nd a similar scenario from the Gator past and see if any of it applies to todays morass. And while the forthcoming comparison comes with a few differences, there is a thread that ties the two together. Were going to take you back to 1980, the second year of Charley Pells regime, a renaissance season where the Gators finished 8-4 after the miserable 0-10-1 debacle of Pells rookie season in 1979. With a beyond-miserable offense in that produced a mere 106 points in 11 games, the Gators shocked the world behind an unknown sophomore lefty quarterback named Bob Hewko, ripping off three wins to open the season and scoring 107 points in the process. Florida actually appeared in the polls at No. 19 but true to form in those days, the bottom dropped out when Hewko suffered a season-ending knee injury in a home loss to LSU. The keys to the kingdom were turned over to ballyhooed freshman Wayne Peace, but the ultra-conservative Pell toned down the short passing game of first year offensive coordinator Mike Shanahan, as Peace attempted only 10 passes in UFs next game, a 15-3 win at Ole Miss. Then came a 13-0 Homecoming snoozer W over Louisville and a 21-10 home win over Auburn, when slowly more elements of the original offense appeared. The Gators returned to the polls at No. 20 and up next was second-ranked, undefeated Georgia, led by the incomparable Herschel Walker. With growing confidence in Peace, Shanahan headed a spirited battle against Pell in the coaches ofces, with the 27-year-old offensive whiz winning out. I will never forget sitting under the big oak tree on the perimeter of the practice eld as the Gators unveiled a new offensive scheme for the Dawgs (we were sworn to secrecy, and actually trusted, back in those days). What we saw was the installation of a highying four-wide receiver set, which was quite radical some 33 years ago. The key component was the insertion of 6-6 Tyrone Young, who opped as a quarterback a season earlier and was basically in mothballs on the bench. He was going to be the featured receiver in a scheme no one had seen outside of the UF camp. It worked brilliantly as Peace threw for 282 yards and Young was magni cent, hauling in 10 passes for 183 yards as the Gators erased a 20-10 fourth-quarter de cit and forged a 21-20 advantage in the closing minutes, with an SEC title and a berth in the Sugar Bowl just one more step away. Of course, not that we really want to remind long-time Florida fans, but this was the Lindsay Scott Game as the Gators stayed true to their reputation and found a way to lose on a 93-yard catch-and-run in the nal minute that stands alone in dreadful Gator lore. But if it wasnt for Scott and the Dawgs late heroics, this probably would be remembered as the Tyrone Young Game, and heres the point that binds us to thepresent. In the span of a few days, the Gators changed their offensive approach, and opened up the works for Peace, who had been on a very short leash in his rst three games as a rookie starter. But knowing theyd have to tee it up with the powerful Dawgs, who went on to win the national title, Pell begrudgingly let Shanahan and the offensive staff devise a newfangled plan that came with inches of pulling off the dramatic win. But there is precedent here, for implementing some changes in the offensive plan.

TREEContinued from Page A18 understand the value of physical things. I suspect this may be true. He has some beautifully preserved railroad equipment displayed in his home. I love to see it there, to touch it. I appreciate objects I can work with balanced hammers, good wrenches, boots, gloves, hats. And I love the evidence of regular usage worn handles, scratched metal, dirt and sweat stains. Worn but durable tools are particularly precious to me if they were used by people I knew and cared for more so if I actually saw those people use the old tools. Is this an aesthetic appreciation? Nostalgia? About 15 years ago, I got involved with some magazines about antique machines: Farm Collector, Gas Engine Magazine and Motorcycle Classics. As I started hanging out in this new social circle a bunch of grease-monkey historians I soon realized that the primary preciousness of the machines wasnt in their resale value, their utility or even their scarcity. For collectors, the principal value of the antique machinery appears to be in the stories associated with an object. Where was it found? Who owned it before? Where was it made? How, precisely, was it used or ridden or driven? And by whom? And that, I suppose, is the root of my attachment to the old tools that have been in the hands of my great-grandfather, grandfather, my father and all of the other people who used them. Our tools are tribal totems. They symbolize traditions. Weve conducted ceremonies around them secular ceremonies of industry and work, but ceremonies nonetheless, though we never called them such a thing. My family has religious traditions, too, but our lives are mostly lived in the secular temples of the shop, the house and the barn. I remember sitting through church with my parents and grandparents as a child, but I much more vividly recall crouching on the floor next to my dad while he drilled that hole with a brace and bit so we could run some new electrical conduit, and watching my grandfather tack down shingles with the hammer I still carry in his toolbox that has now become mine. To a little boy, the strength and coordination required to drive a nail seemed superhuman. I was thrilled to watch my father, looking so graceful and powerful, drill a hole. I wanted to be like that. So I practiced. When I was about 4 or 5, my grandfather was attaching a carport to his house. To keep me busy, he handed me a spare miter saw and laid a 2-by-6-inch piece of lumber across two sawhorses. He showed me where to cut it, and acted surprised and delighted when he came back over and found Id managed to saw a couple of 1-inch slots in his rafter. He used the lumber in the roof and left my handiwork showing. I was in college the last time he pointed out that board to me, carrying the roofs weight in spite of my small sabotage. I eventually developed some of the strength and skill I admired in my mentors. But part of me still idolizes them. When I pick up their tools and put these family heirlooms to work, the act feels mythical, heroic. Our old tools are sacred relics. Through them we are connected to our work, the world, our ancestors and each other.Excerpted from MOTHER EARTH NEWS, the Original Guide to Living Wisely.

This turkey breed was originally created in the late 1960s by Dr. J.R. Smyth Jr. of the University of Massachusetts in response to commercial interest in producing a smaller version of commercial turkeys. After several years work, Dr. Smyth had to stop his breeding program at the university, but a former graduate of his, Dr. Bernie Wentworth of the University of Wisconsin, picked up where Dr. Smyth left off. Wentworth continued refining the birds with selective breeding until he produced the Midget White turkeys we know today white birds with bodies in picture-perfect proportion to reflect the appearance of the larger commercial white in miniature. These birds mature to 8 to 13 pounds for market weight, with a plump breast that is not overly large. (Commercial turkey breeds produced in industrial systems have been bred to produce such large breasts that the toms can no longer mate naturally with the hens, so these turkeys have to be produced by artificial insemination.) The compact Midget White Midget white turkeys are a great heritage breed Midget White turkeys are small birds with big personalities.

A28THEGADSDENCOUNTYTIMES THURSDAY, NOVEMBER7, 2013 WWW.GADCOTIMES.COM can be a real asset for smaller families looking for productive turkeys that are suitably sized table birds. Unlike industrial turkeys, the Midget White turkey was selected for high production of fertile eggs, with hens producing up to 60 to 80 per year. After your hatching needs are fulfilled in spring, you will find that the turkeys rich and flavorful eggs are desirable for other purposes. They excel in the production of pastries and desserts as Chef Tina Casaceli discovered while experimenting with them at the French Culinary Institute. The eggs produced one of the finest crme brles Ive ever made, she commented, but added that theyre not suitable for light recipes such as Angel Food or Gnoise cake. Turkey eggs are also known to be a favored ingredient in egg noodles for the Amish. Talk to an owner of Midget Whites and the conversation invariably seems to turn to personality. Victoria Miller and her husband, David, have owned a flock for years on their homestead in Washington state. They follow us around like puppy dogs and always need to be a part of the action around the farm, she says. The couple couldnt be happier with the results of owning a flock and they have found a ready market for the birds they produce. Selling these small turkeys has improved the finances for the Millers Canyon Creek Farm and could be a fine addition to any small-scale producers offerings. Check the following mail-order sources to find Midget Whites. The popularity of heritage turkey breeds has developed a strong market for Midget Whites, so place your order early.

QuanDra Shanks took third place at 18:27.90 and Cynthia Chelelgo took eighth place in 18:45.80, both earning All-MEAC honors. Zenia George took 18th place in 19:31.80. She was followed by Chandelic Jackson who took 21st place in 19:36.40. These scores constituted the first five to cross for the tournament, giving the Lady Rattlers 52 points and another MEAC championship. Rounding out the FAMU squad was Phyllis Cheruiyot (25th place, 19:57.50) and Ciera Williams (45th place, 20:58.80). They say its harder to repeat than win the first one, Moore said. I think it has to do with the pressure placed on a champion. I am proud of my young ladies for responding to the challenge. The MEAC is getting stronger all around us in cross country, so we have to continue to improve, and I thought our team did very well to run their race today. We are happy to bring this trophy back to campus for all our school to enjoy. I stress to our runners that when we compete, we are ambassadors for the university and we take it very seriously. This outcome represents what is expected of us when we put on that orange and green, Moore concluded. The Rattlers will compete in the NCAA regionals in Tuscaloosa, Ala., on Nov. 15, while the Lady Rattlers will forgo the automatic bid, as the team won despite nursing several injuries. FAMUContinued from Page A5 the child. After knocking loudly on the door of the business, an audible alarm began to sound and soon thereafter the womans 3year-old daughter appeared at a window inside the dark business alone and crying, according to a Quincy Police Department press release. The Quincy Fire Department Rescue Unit forced open a door to the business and Barber retrieved the child, who was obviously frightened but appeared unharmed, according to the QPD release. The owner and employee of the facility could not be located on this date. The following day, Quincy Police CID Investigators did contact the owner, Willa T. Nelson, 75, and conducted a criminal interview with her at police headquarters. Nelson told investigators that on the date in question she had a doctors appointment and she called the parents of the children at 1:25 p.m. and told them to pick their kids up by 2 p.m. Nelson went on to say she did not account for the 3-yearold child before leaving the facility but did not do this intentionally, according to the QPD release. When asked if something like this had ever happened before, Nelson said there was an incident in 2005 but she couldnt recall the details. Investigators later determined that in 2005 a child had been left unattended on the facilitys playground and that case was forwarded to the Florida Department of Children and Families. On Wednesday, Oct. 30, a criminal arrest warrant was issued for Nelsons arrest on a charge of child neglect. Nelson, 427 E. Circle Drive, Quincy, did turn herself in to the Gadsden County Jail later that day and was booked and released on her own recognizance until her later court date, according to QPD. Anyone having additional information on this case is asked to contact QPD Criminal Investigation Division, Capt. Troy Gilyard, at 850-627-0140. QPDContinued from Page A6 TALLAHASSEE Average retail gasoline prices in Tallahassee have fallen 2.5 cents per gallon in the past week, averaging $3.23/gallon Sunday, according to GasBuddys daily survey of 201 gas outlets in Tallahassee. This compares with the national average that has fallen 3.3 cents per gallon in the last week to $3.26/gallon, according to gasoline price website GasBuddy. com. Including the change in gas prices in Tallahassee during the past week, prices yesterday were 11.8 cents per gallon lower than the same day one year ago and are 2.5 cents per gallon lower than a month ago. The national average has decreased 12.8 cents per gallon during the last month and stands 24.2 cents per gallon lower than this day one year ago. The downward movement in national gasoline prices has continued for yet another week, thanks to a fall in commodity prices, said GasBuddy.com Senior Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan. Oil prices continue to shed value, leading the way to lower gasoline prices. Five states all in the nations midsection are now seeing their average prices under $3/gallon: Missouri, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Texas, and Kansas, and motorists in those states certainly have a theres no place like home advantage, DeHaan said.
