To some folks, Gadsden County is a hot-spot for Sasquatch sightings so much so that earlier this year it drew the investigators and production team from the Animal Planet series Finding Bigfoot. One episode of the show based on the teams visit to Gadsden County and the surrounding area aired earlier this year. According to Crawfordville resident and full-time Sasquatch hunter Stacy Brown Jr., the episode in the new season based on the crews February visit will air at 10 p.m. this Sunday on Animal Planet. It is titled Best Evidence Yet. Torreya State Park Manager Steven Cutshaw said the Finding Bigfoot crew filmed overnight for several nights in February. He believes increased exposure should bring more people to the park. I suspect after the actual episode airs that it will increase visitation somewhat. Brown and his father released a thermal image video Dec. 1 they shot in May 2012 at Torrey State Park in Liberty County. They say the video, which is on Stacy Brown Jr.s website, thesasquatchhunters.com, shows a Bigfoot in the woods. This footage captured the attention of Cliff Barackman, one of the Finding Bigfoot investigators. The Brown Footage also appears on Barackmans website. The Finding Bigfoot investigators have already visited Gadsden County specifically the Chattahoochee home of Carolyn and Bill Bridges. Stacy Brown Jr. started visiting the Bridges property after he saw the 2011 episode of Finding Bigfoot based on the couples description of strange occurrences near their home in the woods. Her account of unusual incidents includes a decorative birdfeeder in the yard that had had all the seed removed and the CHERI HARRISTimesGRETNA Gretna City Manager Antonio Jefferson has appointed Carlos De La Cruz as the new Chief of Police of the Gretna Police Department. De La Cruz previously served as Interim Police Chief of the Gretna Police Department. It is a pleasure to promote a qualified member of the Gretna police force to the position of Chief of Police. Chief De La Cruz has been a dedicated member of the Gretna Police Department and is very deserving of this appointment, said Jefferson in a press release. I once was the police chief here, Jefferson said during the swearing-in ceremony Friday. I value the position because I had it. De La Cruz was initially hired to the Gretna Police Department in 2007 as a patrolman. He was later promoted to patrol sergeant before a short stint with the Florida Division of Alcoholic Beverages and Tobacco. De La Cruz returned to the Gretna Police Department in 2011 as captain. In 2012 he became the interim police chief. De La Cruz was certified through the Osceola County Criminal Justice Academy and the Division of Alcoholic Beverages and Tobacco. He has also completed training courses at the Pat Thomas Law Enforcement Academy. I am extremely proud of this appointment. My hard work and determination has been key to my success, De La Cruz said in the press release. The majority of my law enforcement career has been spent being part of this fine police department and now I get the opportunity to lead this department. After his swearing-in, De La Cruz said he was committed to working with the men and women who want to make a difference in this community. Gadsden County Sheriff Morris Young said, Carlos has been a great role model for Gretna. The Gretna Police Department provides police services by adhering to the community policing model and working in partnership with the community to solve mutually identified problems. While engaged with, and aware of the concerns of the community, the department works to provide efficient, effective and courteous police service that promotes public safety, protects the rights of all citizens, and improves the quality of life in Gretna while upholding the highest standards of the law enforcement profession, according to the press release.

NEWS BRIEFS Quincy audit expected by Nov. 30 CURT WILKERSONTimes CorrespondentAt the Nov. 12 meeting of the Quincy City Commission, City Manager Jack McLean reported that the citys internal audit is almost complete, and is now scheduled to be submitted by the end of the month. The audit, originally scheduled to be completed in June, had been the focus of controversy at recent commission meetings. In order to complete the audit, the city enlisted the aid of Jeffrey Barbacci of the Thomas Howell Ferguson accounting firm, as well as Midway resident Natalie Parrish. Natalie has been providing great assistance to us at no cost, said McLean. We have been impressed by her work, her work ethic and her dedication. During the meeting, Quincy Human Resources Director Bessie Evans was on hand to discuss the citys partnering with Workforce Plus to offer the First Connect Youth Work Experience program, which is designed to offer job training to area youths age 16 to 21 who are preparing to enter the job market for the first time. This program will be a wonderful partnership for the city, said Evans.

plastic part was wrapped around a stump so they knew it wasnt a bear. Recently, she said she and her husband were both awakened from a sound sleep by the sound of a howl that came through background sounds in their bedroom including a fan and a window air conditioning unit. You just have to experience it, she said. Its so forceful. Perhaps the most puzzling discovery reported at the Bridges home was what appeared to be a hand print discovered near the base of a glass door, and grease on the door handle. It was a perfect handprint, she said, and it was really greasy. What troubled the retired arson investigator and canine trainer most about the handprint is where she said she found it: It was on the inside. Thats when we realized the thing had opened the door. She said both the hand print and the bird feeder incidents occurred in 2006. Bill Bridges, an architect, bought their property in 1978. They didnt hear of any accounts of any strange creatures until they started building their home in 2001. The only time she reported seeing the creature is when she saw something outside that looked to her like a gray gorilla pulling itself along the ground. She said she believes the creatures crawl more than they walk.. Stacy Brown Jr. described several encounters on the Bridges property including a Nov. 6, 2011, incident in which something pressed down on the tent he and a buddy were camping in. That freaked us out, he said. He said a creature also threw things up at him from down in a ravine. Theyre more patient than you are, he said. Brown was a Bigfoot hobbyist for about seven years before he launched a venture as a full-time Sasquatch hunter. He said he had his first Sasquatch encounter since January at Torreya State Park in February during the parks Torreya Challenge race at about 3 in the morning. He said the creature did essentially what it did in the video: It was walking and then stopped behind a tree, and all you could see was its huge red eyes.A2THEGADSDENCOUNTYTIMES THURSDAY, NOVEMBER21, 2013 WWW.GADCOTIMES.COM 000ETZG Name __________________________________________________________________ Address ________________________________________________________________ City _______________________________________________ State _______________ Zip __________ Phone ____________________ Email __________________________ Payment Enclosed Bill Me Sign up online Promo Code: TURKEY Clip, complete and mail to: 000GHBX Dont Be A Turkey!

AUDITContinued from Page A1 CURT WILKERSONTimes CorrespondentKimberly Moore, vice president of Tallahassee Community Colleges Division of Workforce Development, hosted A Gadsden County Stakeholder Conversation on Tuesday, Nov. 12, at the Florida Public Safety Institute Conference Center in Havana. The event was held to create a dialogue about workforce development, education and economic growth in Gadsden County, and many members of the community showed up to participate. Strong education systems combined with robust and in-demand training programs supported by strong government creates a positive business climate, said Moore. Hence the reason for the stakeholders conversation to see how we can combine efforts. Here are a few highlights from the event: Olivia Smith, Gadsden Countys special projects coordinator, discussed what the county offers to make an environment conducive to business growth. Gadsden County has streamlined the development and permitting process, cutting down processing time to one week and lowering permitting fees, said Smith. Also, in 2010 as part of an economic incentive package, voters opted to implement tax abatement and enterprise zones. Smith also explained that the county has initiated road-widening projects, and will be working to expand broadband services to rural parts of the county. Additionally, the Gadsden County Economic Development Council has tasked Beth Kirkland, the former executive director of the Tallahassee Economic Development Council, with helping to jumpstart economic growth in the county. Bruce Batton, program coordinator for TCCs Advanced Manufacturing Program, explained Workforce Developments goals and described the programs they offer: We are focused on providing individual and organizational training and services to make these organizations in our region more competitive in a global market, said Batton. We offer short-term, fast-paced programs so people can get the kind of training they need to enter into careers in a short period of time.

A4THEGADSDENCOUNTYTIMES THURSDAY, NOVEMBER21, 2013 WWW.GADCOTIMES.COMIt was a brisk, cold night as I walked down one of San Franciscos busy streets. I was clad in my Coast Guard dress blue uniform, and I walked along in such a way that a passerby might think I was marching along to the beat of a silent or distant drummer. It was Election Day, and I had just voted for the first time in my life. As I continued walking down the street, there was excitement in the air as the election results were starting to pour in, and everyone couldnt wait to hear the latest word on who was winning in this very close presidential election. I have no idea why I voted for Nixon. I surely hadnt studied the positions or views of either candidate or knew what their platforms were all about. My parents were voting for Nixon, and thats probably why I voted for him. I knew nothing of Kennedy except he, like Nixon, had been in the Navy, and he was a Catholic. In a few days I would be boarding a flight to Honolulu as I had recently received orders for Coast Guard duty in Hawaii. Its no wonder I walked the streets of San Francisco proudly. I was excited about my new duty assignment in beautiful Hawaii. At this time, this island paradise seemed to be a place where most everyone I knew would have loved to spend some time. I, like so many Americans, was surprised to find that Kennedy would be our new president. In a very short time I grew to admire the man and liked his politics. He made me feel special to be an American and to be doing my part in asking not what my country could do for me, but what I could do for my country. I was serving in a branch of one of my countrys five military teams. I was proud and looking forward to performing my duty as a sailor. I had worked a midnight watch at Coast Guard Radio Station Honolulu on the eve of Nov. 21, 1963, and had finally retired to bed early on the morning of Nov. 22. My wife, Millie, then a student at the University of Hawaii, called me from my sound sleep sometime during the day. She delicately shared that I should brace myself at what she was going to tell me. I was still half asleep and could only think she was going to leave me or that one of our family members had died. She then shared that our beloved president had been shot and killed in Dallas a few minutes ago. It was the most shocking news I had ever received at the ripe, young age of 22. We immediately went to the TV and watched the mournful news story of the slaying of our young president. We both cried for days, eyes glued to the television, as so many Americans did over that unfortunate assassination. I had chalked up President Kennedy as a good president and missed his enthusiasm, sharpness and intelligence. After all, he had been my commanderin-chief. I have always been annoyed that I had never learned what truly happened or who really killed our president. Im sure if youre old enough to remember that dreadful day, Nov. 22, 1963, 50 years ago, you, too, are probably bothered that you never really learned what happened. Now, 50 years later, we, the public, are going to be treated to what promises to be another blockbuster movie, Killing Kennedy. That fateful November day, so many years ago, seems to me, to be the time when this country started down the path of destruction. The Cold War seemed to be over and optimism seemed to be pervasive in this country. And then, JFK was assassinated. Hopefully, this new movie, based on conservative commentator Bill OReilly and Martin Dugards book, will shed some credible light on what really happened on Nov. 22, 1963. I am one of those readers who really enjoyed OReillys earlier book, Killing Lincoln. For you younger readers, I trust you have learned some things about former President Kennedy and have formulated some of your own thoughts about such a large figure in our history. More than that, I hope you are concerned about our political figures who make the news today in the politics of our time and you are looking forward to doing what you can to make America, the world, a better place to live. God bless you. PATRICE McDERMOTT American Forum Families who live near or share waterways with large corporate farms or concentrated animal feeding operations (CAFOs) have a critical need to know some basic facts about these operations. The publics right to this information, however, could be stripped away by the Farm Bill currently under debate in Congress. Negotiators from the House and Senate are currently meeting to try to develop a compromise between the House-passed version of the Farm Bill and what was passed by the Senate. Among the differences between the bills, the Houses version includes language that unnecessarily cuts off public access to basic information livestock and agricultural operations. We understand that the Houses intent in including the language is to make sure that the government does not release farmers personal information. But, there are two major problems with the way that the Houses approach to this: one, the language ignores that the law already includes strong protections for personal privacy; and two, the language is so broad that it wraps up information about corporate farms with small farm operations. Earlier this year the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) released the information of around 80,000 livestock operations across the country to environmental groups. After hearing from affected farmers and members of Congress, the EPA determined that it improperly released personal information. The EPA asked that the requesters return the information and the requesters complied, agreeing to return the original documents and destroy all copies of the information in their possession. In other words, the EPA determined that existing protections for personal privacy should have prevented them from releasing this information in the first place. Beyond being an over-reaction to the controversy surrounding the EPAs actions, the Houses language sets a terrible precedent for extending the Freedom of Information Acts personal privacy protections to corporations. The Houses failure to define owners or operators means that the EPA will be required to deny the public access to not only small family operations but to large corporate operations as well. In a recent Supreme Court case, FEC vs. ATT, the Court ruled that Congress never intended for corporations to enjoy such protections under the FOIA. To extend these rights to corporations would allow them to abuse personal privacy to escape public oversight and corporate responsibility. FOIA is built on the premise that if the public has a right to government records, particularly if there is a public interest in the information. The Houses language eviscerates the laws promise of transparency by completely cutting off access to information that people might need to protect the health and safety of their family and the broader community. House and Senate negotiators must not allow this harmful secrecy provision to become law. McDermott is executive director of OpenTheGovernment.org, and author of Who Needs to Know?

Now add a dash of incest, murder and high level conspiracy among its most prominent families. Surely not! Well, maybe so My name is Pamela Hain and I am a retired CIA analyst and current author living in South Carolina. I am reaching out to the citizens of Quincy to help solve a century-old family mystery of the highest order resulting in great personal family tragedy and what I believe to be long injustice.

In Gadsden County, 40 percent of the adult population is reading at Level I literacy, which is the lowest literacy level. Many others are functioning below a fifth-grade reading level, and do not have the necessary basic skills required by todays society to live above the poverty level. Forty percent of Gadsden County residents (ages 16 and older) do not have a high school diploma or equivalent. A majority of the 4,000 to 5,000 former migrant farm workers who now reside in Gadsden County have trouble speaking English.Literacy volunteers Laura Finley, Ph.D. PeaceVoice I am writing and raging. Raging because I am tired, oh so tired, of my activism being repressed or limited by bureaucratic minutia and ridiculous protocol. I am even more upset at the ways bureaucracy stifles my students who, because they are informed and outraged, want to act and are told they cant, or can only under certain conditions blah, blah, blah. I am coming to realize this squelching of real activism happens on so many fronts, even those we typically associate with freedom to assembly and expression. As a college professor, I have witnessed the difficulty of enacting a true mission for social justice because any time we get too controversial, we might alienate a donor, future donor, or other bureaucratic big-wig. Thus final approval for activism, it seems, must come from, of all places, a division devoted to making money for the institution, not one devoted to its mission or to the empowerment of students as leaders. It is even worse for students. Increasingly, students are told they can only organize if they get institutional approval. And they must speak out only in designated free speech zones wasnt the United States founded as a free speech zone? How oxymoronic, emphasis on the latter half of the word. Those who have power can lord over those without, curtailing their efforts to envision and begin creating a better world. It is not just academe where this is a problem, however. I have written before about the bureaucracy of social services and the ways these entities sometimes harm, rather than help. It is even evident among progressive peace and justice organizations, although I would argue it looks different. It may be disguised as offering a voice to all, but when some exercise veto power, or at least attempt to do so via bureaucratic strangling, the result is the same. For instance, I have seen this squelching of ambition and activism via an electronic handcuff known as track changes. Instead of applauding persons who author critical commentary on social issues, an important form of activism, I would argue, I have seen members of peace and justice organizations attempt to curtail or rein it in by softening the word choice and track-changing the ever-loving-hell out of a document. So, instead of being justice-oriented yet provocative, this activism ends up mundane and, in all likelihood, boring and unread. What do I recommend? We let people be, and we let them put their messages out there. Others who may disagree can do so. Dialogue will ensue a good thing. We stop using our academic privilege to present as though our style of delivery is better than others. And we encourage students, academics and activists to prevail through the bureaucracy until they are heard. I know I will, rant aside.

She works with troubled, abused and damaged children, letting them play while she observes and does some other stuff therapist stuff that helps them express and process their thoughts and feelings. Theres a lot more to it, but thats my reducedto-bare-bones version of what she does. Shes got tons of toys, mostly figures of people and animals, some scary like snakes and spiders and monsters, some from pop culture like Daffy Duck, Homer Simpson, Disney princesses. In her playroom theres a doll house and dressup clothes and I forgot what else. One of the therapies she does with kids and adults, too, is sand tray therapy. You have a tray of sand in front of you and you take a little basket and shop among her hundreds of figures and then you set them up in the sand however your imagination and subconscious directs. The theory is, the result is a microcosm of your inner world. According to some of the research I did, what you create may or may not even make immediate sense to you once youre finished, but every piece has meaning, from what you choose to where you place it. My friend the therapist invited me and another friend to come play in the sand. At first it sounded scary. Like, what if we did it wrong? Or what if the therapist could look into our souls and see something evil and awful? What if our sand world meant that we were serial killers? I decided that I would go, but only to observe and take mental notes. However, shortly after we got to the play therapists office, one of the three trays of sand that sat out on tables drew my attention, a tray of beautiful, messy damp sand. I started smoothing it out, talking about the huge sand box we had as kids, a fourth of our back yard and how we spent hours playing in it. When I got the sand as flat and level as I could, I said, This is how I eat ice cream, and dug a shallow moat around the sides, then leveled off the middle. Thats the way my dad eats ice cream from the carton. I am my fathers daughter. I like order and precision and everything level and straight, smooth and even. No bumps or surprises. Everything in my control. My friend who had come and who also hadnt wanted to play made her sand tray into a scene and a metaphor of her life. We had agreed to keep everything confidential, so I cant say what her sand tray was about, except that it was quite meaningful to her and therapeutic. Our therapist friend told us the story of her life with her sand tray. Of course, shes done this before so she knew what she was doing. Not to be left out, I decided to go ahead and make my own sand world. First, I needed the ocean, my ultimate place of peace, restoration and wholeness, so I used blue and green glass stones as the water. Then I placed my toy figurines in a semi-circle facing the water:WWW.GADCOTIMES.COMTHEGADSDENCOUNTYTIMES THURSDAY, NOVEMBER21, 2013 A5 Praise the Lord!

WWW.GADCOTIMES.COMTHEGADSDENCOUNTYTIMES THURSDAY, NOVEMBER21, 2013 A11 Finding your edge CALEB D. REGANGRIT magazineAmong the most versatile homestead tools, the knife really shines. From cutting hay bales open to whittling marshmallow sticks for the campfire and processing any number of livestock and wildlife, this is one tool that is irreplaceable in country living. Look in any knife catalog, and youll find a bewildering array of options. If you thoroughly consider your cutting needs, theres a knife category that has you covered.Knife stylesThe four types of knives youll typically encounter are the fixed blade, folding knife, butterfly knife and sliding knife, and styles, sizes and uses are as varied as the bladesmiths who make them. Probably the most famous of the fixed-blade variety is the Bowie knife, and the fixedblade style is considered one of the most reliable styles in our repertoire. You find these on the dinner table, at the butcher shop, in the woodshop, the list goes on. The steel blade consists of one piece of metal that either dovetails into the handle or runs the length of the handle or even beyond. The tang refersto the part of the blade that connects to the handle, and much of the quality and durability of the knife depends on the style and material of the tang. The best fixed blades are solidly constructed knives that offer no surprises and good durability. What the fixed blade lacks in convenience, the folding knife offers, since it can be folded and slipped into a pocket or other carrying space. Folding knives often have a locking mechanism that aims for the same stability and confidence of a fixed-blade knife. Individuals select locking mechanisms based on things like ease of use, stability and safety of the locking system, and durability of the mechanism. Butterfly knives, also known as balisongs or fan knives, are a type of folding knife with two counter-rotating handles around the tang of the blade that can lock into place and conceal the blade. The most common form of the sliding knife that most of us have encountered is the sliding utility knife, or the box cutter. Processing knivesHeres where the category of knives becomes far more specialized, and its also where knives take on a lot more meaning to the owner. There are designs for such things as weapons, sporting equipment, religious implements and more. Here well focus on the utensil and tool categories, and a few of the specific types for our purposes around the homestead. Skinning knives often carry the blade profile known as trailing point, where the back edge of the blade, the spine, actually curves up as you reach the point. Because of this, the point is situated out of the way and since these knives have a lot of belly, the curve created concentrates the cutting edge and allows it to be more maneuverable and able to conform to complex curves characteristics that make it effective for separating hide and fat from meat and bones. Boning knives are regular kitchen utensils that feature a sharp point and a narrow blade. They usually take on the normal or straightback blade profile. The slender blade makes precision easier, especially when dealing with deep cuts and holes. Most prefer stiff boning knives when boning out beef and pork, and more flexible boning knives when dealing with poultry and fish. Another among my favorite types of knives is the fillet knife, and I actually prefer this to our boning knives when cutting up deer meat. When working with venison, its imperative to carefully remove all the sinew, which helps prevent some of that gamey taste people sometimes notice. The flexibility and strength of the fillet knife are perfect for this since its similar to working down the backbone of a fish. Fillet knives come in four standard sizes: 4, 6, 71/2 and 9 inches. If youre typically working with crappie or bluegill, a 4-inch fillet knife is effective and wont offer much extra blade that could result in unintentional cuts. A good allaround fillet knife, if you can only have one, is 71/2 inches. These knives should be flexible, and a good rule of thumb is that it should pass the 1-inch test: If you press the knife straight down on the point and apply pressure, the blade should bend an inch or more in either direction. Fillet knives are often made of stainless steel. Choose a brand you trust that produces blades strong, durable and resistant to corrosion. When thinking of processing cutlery, some folks may think of the cleaver. Cleavers are large knives designed for sustaining repeated blows to a tough edge of the knife, not necessarily for slicing through meat. The real strength of and intended use for the cleaver is chopping through heavy bones and coming back for more tomorrow. Paring knives are another general purpose knife well-used and well-represented in indoor and outdoor work alike. The term hunting knife is thrown about generally, and in fact many of what people call hunting knives are also paring knives. Paring knives generally carry the straightback blade profile. They are ideal for small, intricate work like removing pepper seeds, deveining shrimp, peeling an orange and the like. Theyre similar to a chefs knife, in fact, only much smaller and more versatile.Utility knivesThough the term has taken on new meaning in recent decades, utility knives can be anything from the folding pocket knife one carries on a daily basis, a fixed-blade general utility knife carried on a belt and used for anything from cutting hides and cordage to cutting an apple at lunchtime, or the sliding-blade cutter generally referred to as a utility knife or box cutter today and used in construction settings and factories. Multitools fit into this category, as well as the Swiss Army knife.Staying sharpNo matter the knives you choose to help make life easier on your end, one important thing to note is that its imperative to keep them sharp. A dull knife is a dangerous knife, and knowing when to restore your edge could be the difference between a job done well and safely and, well, an accidental slip-up that you regret for years. Keep your edges sharp, and use knives you trust that are suitable to your application, and these old tools will serve you for years to come. Excerpted from GRIT, Celebrating Rural America Since 1882.

A12THEGADSDENCOUNTYTIMES THURSDAY, NOVEMBER21, 2013 WWW.GADCOTIMES.COM FAMILY FEATURES Recognizingsafetymeasuresinyourhome What comes to mind when considering safety hazards around the home? Do you think of electrical safety, fire prevention and reducing the risk of electrical shock? Often times, our quest for new kitchen cabinets and hardwood floors takes priority, while the projects to increase home safety are put on the back burner. One project, however, that should not be put off is evaluating the electrical safety of your home. There is no time like the present to take a good look around your home and make the simple, yet necessary changes to eliminate electrical hazards and create an added layer of protection for your home and family, said Tom Kraeutler, home improvement expert and syndicated radio show host of The Money Pit. Kraeutler notes a good start is to take inventory of the outlets around your home. Take notice of any outlets that could benefit from being replaced by an Arc Fault Circuit Interrupter (AFCI), Ground Fault Circuit Interrupters (GFCI) or tamper-resistant outlet.AFCIversusGFCIAFCIs and GFCIs sound similar, but what do they mean? While AFCIs provide protection from arc-faults that may lead to electrical fires, GFCIs help protect homeowners from electrical shock due to ground faults. Arc-fault protection is extremely important as arc-faults are often unseen and can occur anywhere in the homes electrical system, including within walls as well as appliance cords. AFCI receptacles are relatively new to the market and detect arcing electrical faults to help reduce the likelihood of the electrical system being an ignition source of a fire. They are perfect for a remodeling project or new home construction as the latest National Electrical Coderequires AFCI protection in a growing number of locations throughout the home. GFCIs on the other hand are designed to reduce the occurrences of shock or electrocution due to ground faults. Many homeowners are familiar with GFCI devices as they are proven safety products that have saved many lives since their introduction to the market. WholehousesafetyDid you know the Electrical Safety Foundation International reports home electrical fires account for an estimated 51,000 fires each year, resulting in nearly 500 deaths, more than 1,400 injuries and $1.3 billion in property damage? Just as alarming, the Foundation reports that nearly seven children are treated daily in hospital emergency rooms for electrical shock or burn injuries caused by tampering with a wall outlet. Recent technological advances in the AFCI, GFCI and tamperresistant outlet market have made achieving whole home electrical protection simpler than ever. This is due to the creation of devices capable of providing necessary protection, as well as cost-effective and easier to install options. AFCI protection was once only available through the homes circuit breaker, Kraeutler explained. Now, AFCI receptacles are available for a safe alternative for added home protection. In addition, GFCI options are available in slim design for added space in an electrical box to make installation simpler. They also offer a tamper resistant design for increased safety by blocking access to the contacts by most foreign objects, thereby reducing shock and electrocution incidents. Take proactive steps to update your homes electrical devices using the following tips:Tips to protect your home from electrical hazardsKeep an eye out for electrical wiring damaged during installation or afterwards through over-stapling; crush ing; bending; penetra tion by screws and nails; and through rodent or insect damage. Over time, cabling may also degrade further due to exposure to elevated temperatures or humidity, even tually leading to arcing faults and potentially a fire. Install AFCI receptacles in family rooms, dining rooms, living rooms, parlors, libraries, dens, bedrooms, sun rooms, recreation rooms, closets, hallways or similar rooms or areas.Use GFCI receptacles anywhere water may be present, such as kitchens, bathrooms, garages, basements, porches, pool areas and laundry rooms.For added convenience, try a self-test GFCI that auto matically tests itself to confirm that protected power is available.Consider replacing standard outlets with tamper-resistant outlets which employ an automatic shutter mechanism designed to pro tect children attempting to insert foreign objects.One company, Leviton, offers the industrys first AFCI recep tacle, slim GFCI receptacles for easier installation and a wide variety of combination tamper-resistant outlet devices. Visit your local or online retailer for more product details.Check out online resources and videos at www.learnitatleviton.com for do-it-yourself installations of AFCI, GFCI and tamper-resistant outlets in your home. Install AFCI receptacles in family rooms, dining rooms, living rooms, parlors, libraries, dens, bedrooms, sunrooms, recreation rooms, closets, hallways or similar rooms or areas.

WWW.GADCOTIMES.COMTHEGADSDENCOUNTYTIMES THURSDAY, NOVEMBER21, 2013 A13 Photo courtesy of Getty ImagesFAMILY FEATURES Football season is here with high school, college and NFL games underway. That means fans nationwide are preparing to throw the most epic tailgates of the season. According to a recent Bank of America survey, which asked consumers about their tailgating plans for this football season, more than three-fourths of respondents (77 percent) plan to host at least one tailgate party. Throwing a big, tasty and impressive tailgate can be one way for fans to support their favorite teams. However, the costs of hosting a tailgate can add up. To make sure your fandom doesnt break the bank, TV host and author Adam Richman says to remember that an expensive tailgate doesnt necessarily mean a better one. The bottom line is that tailgating costs money, whether its the gas to get to the stadium, the food, the souvenirs and even the tickets you buy, said Richman. As somebody who loves tail gating and loves fans, one of the biggest assets that I feel that fans have at their disposal is cash rewards cards. Theres no reason that an expensive tailgate should diminish your team spirit. In addition to shopping smart when hosting a tailgate or football party, there are other ways to support your favorite teams this season while not breaking the bank. Some of these tips include:BuyinbulkMore than four out of 10 survey respondents (44 percent) said they typically spend $90 or more when hosting a tailgate. Next to asking guests to bring items, buying in bulk was the second most cited method used to offset the cost of a tailgate and for good reason. Shopping at discount stores can help you pay less for essential tailgate items like hambur gers and hotdogs. And dont worry about buying a large quantity to get a good deal. Freeze what you dont need and use it for the next pre-game party.Dontbeafraid torepurpose When looking to purchase tailgate supplies, consider investing in supplies that can do double duty so you can get more out of what you buy or bring with you to the game. For instance, most everyone knows that tin foil keeps food warm. But you should also consider lining your grill with it. This can help expedite the disposal of used charcoal. Similarly, trash bags are basic necessities to keep the tailgating site clean. If you use a plastic bag to line a case of drinks, fill the case with ice for an impromptu cooler to make sure your beverages are the most refreshing temperature. GetcashbackFor all the purchases that go into the ultimate tailgate, you want to make sure to consider how you will pay for what you need. Ninetythree percent of survey respondents said food or beverages are the biggest expenses when hosting a tailgate or in-home football party. With such important items, dont forget to take advantage of credit cards that offer rewards for those purchases. For example, some cards, such as the BankAmericard Cash Rewards credit card, let you earn more cash back where you spend the most money, for example getting 2 percent cash back at grocery stores on up to $1,500 in combined grocery store and gas purchases quarterly.KnowtherulesWhen youre planning on tailgating at the stadium before seeing your team play, do the research to learn the tailgating rules of the venue. Rules can vary depending on the where the game is hosted, and you dont want to put a damper on game-day fun because you didnt take the time to read through the stadiums website. According to the survey, over twothirds of respondents (68 percent) plan to tail gate at their teams stadium for at least one game this football season. Respecting the rules of the game venue will help keep the days activities moving smoothly and ensure everyone has a great time.Stretchthedollar atthepumpNearly half of those surveyed (48 percent) anticipate driving more than 50 miles to support their teams this season. With all that driving, the amount you spend on gas during football season can sneak up on you. There are a couple ways to help lower your spend ing on gas. First, consider carpooling to and from games, tailgates or football parties. If youre the driver, your passengers can pitch in to help cover gas and other costs. And if youre the passenger, you will save through lower fuel, parking and other vehicle expenses, just dont forget to offer to help out the driver. Secondly, if you have a credit card that pro vides cash back rewards, con sider using it to make gas purchases even if you are part of a carpool. With the BankAmericard Cash Rewards credit card you will automatically earn 3 percent cash back on gas on up to $1,500 in combined grocery store and gas purchases quarterly. Just ask your carpool mates to pay you their share in cash. For more information, visit www.bankofamerica.com/creditcard.

A14THEGADSDENCOUNTYTIMES THURSDAY, NOVEMBER21, 2013 WWW.GADCOTIMES.COM The Presidents SpeechPresident Abraham Lincoln gave the Gettysburg Address, probably his most famous speech, in November 1863, when he was invited to dedicate a cemetery for Union Soldiers who had died in the Civil War. Today, there are five known copies of the Gettysburg Address. Two are in the Library of Congress. Originally, Lincoln gave these to his private secretaries, John Nicolay and John Hay. The copy he gave Nicolay, which is on exhibit at the Library of Congress, may have been the first draft of the speech, or it may have been what Lincoln read the day of the speech. When Nicolay died, his copy was given to Hay. After Hay died, his relatives gave both copies to the Library of Congress.In order to preserve the copies of the address, Dr. Nathan Stolow made state-of-the-art environmental containers to hold them. These containers have heavy-gauge stainless steel inner supports and two outer frames. They are filled with a low-moisture gas, so no oxygen can destroy the documents. They are kept in a low-temperature vault, which has other valuable documents.In addition to the copies Lincoln gave his secretaries, he wrote other copies of the address when he returned to Washington, D.C. One is on display in the Lincoln Room of the White House, and another is at the Illinois State Historical Library.So You Want To BeLook out your window, and you can probably see something designed by an engineer. Thats because engineers work on machines, buildings, highways, bridges, subways, products and even robots. When working on a project, engineers use math and science. In addition, they have to study and think about all the ways a bridge, road, product or machine will be used. Many of them use computers to test how their projects will work. Then engineers spend a lot of time writing reports on their research, plans and projects. From labs to factories to building sites, engineers work in large and small cities, and in the country, too. There are many kinds of engineersincluding chemical, civil, electrical, mechanical and nuclear. Engineers usually have a four-year college degree in one type of engineering. But even though they train in one type of engineering, most can work in other areas of engineering.

This can include such things as installing ramps to bypass stairs, building a bedroom on the main floor, placing grab bars in the shower, changing the height of kitchen countertops or making a bathroom safer and more accessible. Before you make home modifications, you should evaluate your current and future needs by going through your home room by room and answering a series of questions to highlight where changes might be made. Several checklists are available to help you conduct this review. The National Resource Center on Supportive Housing and Home Modifica tions is a good place to start. Go to the centers website at http://www.homemods.org and click on the link to the Safety Checklist and Assessment Instrument. Getting HelpKeeping a house running smoothly requires a lot of hard work. If you are no longer able to keep up with the demands, you may need to hire someone to do laundry, buy groceries, run errands, clean the house or perform any necessary repairs. Those who are unable to perform Activities of Daily Living (ADLs), such as getting in and out of bed, walking, bathing, dressing, and eating, can often continue to stay at home with outside help. There are a number of services that can be brought in to assist with ADLs and other personal care. You can hire some one, such as a personal care aide or home health aide, to help you out a few hours a day or around the clock. Some health care services can be provided at home by trained professionals, such as occupa tional therapists, social workers or home health nurses. Check with your insurance or health service to see what kind of coverage is available, although you may have to cover some of these costs out of pocket. If very specific conditions are met, Medicare will help pay for all or a portion of home health care. TransportationDeclining health often causes a decline in independence and mobility. Many seniors lose the ability to drive or simply feel uncomfortable behind the wheel at night. Investigate transporta tion options in your area so you can maintain an active social life, get medical care and shop for necessities. You might find family members willing to take you to the grocery store, friends who will drive you to social events, nearby bus routes, reduced fare taxis or senior transportation services funded by a local not-for-profit. Staying in your home should not mean being cut off from community activities you enjoy. Finding new ways to get around, even after you are no longer driving, may allow you to stay engaged and active. FAMILY FEATURES Most people prefer to stay in their home or apartment for as long as possible. The best way to make this a reality is to plan ahead of time to make the amenities in your home as safe and accessible as possible. It can be hard to imagine that tasks around the house that were once done with ease can one day pose a challenge. Anticipating the chal lenge and planning accordingly may allow you to remain in your home for an extended period of time. Often, with some minor modifications, your home can be adapted to help you stay as long as possible even with some loss of mobility.

A16THEGADSDENCOUNTYTIMES THURSDAY, NOVEMBER21, 2013 WWW.GADCOTIMES.COM EarthTalk E The Environmental MagazineDear EarthTalk: I understand the Navy is doing sonar testing and training in the oceans and that their activities will likely kill hundreds if not thousands of whales and other marine mammals. What can be done to stop this? Jackie Bomgardner, Wilton, Conn. Active sonar is a technology used on ships to aid in navigation, and the U.S. Navy tests and trains with it extensively in American territorial waters. The Navy also conducts missile and bomb testing in the same areas. But environmentalists and animal advocates contend that this is harming whales and other marine wildlife, and are calling on the Navy to curtail such training and testing exercises accordingly. Naval sonar systems work like acoustic floodlights, sending sound waves through ocean waters for tens or even hundreds of miles to disclose large objects in their path, reports the non-profit Center for Biological Diversity (CBD). But this activity entails deafening sound: even one low-frequency active sonar loudspeaker can be as loud as a twin-engine fighter jet at takeoff. According to CBD, sonar and other military testing can have an especially devastating effect on whales, given how dependent they are on their sense of hearing for feeding, breeding, nursing, communication and navigation. The group adds that sonar can also directly injure whales by causing hearing loss, hemorrhages and other kinds of trauma, as well as drive them rapidly to the surface or toward shore. In 2007, a U.S. appeals court sided with the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC), which had contended that Navy testing violated the National Environmental Policy Act, Marine Mammal Protection Act and Endangered Species Act. But within three months of this ruling, then-President George W. Bush exempted the Navy, citing national security reasons. The exemption was subsequently upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court upon challenge, and the Navy released estimates that its training exercises scheduled through 2015 could kill upwards of 1,000 marine mammals and seriously injure another 5,000. Luckily, in September 2013 a federal court in California sided with green groups in a lawsuit charging that the National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) failed to protect thousands of marine mammals from Navy warfare training exercises in the Northwest Training Range Complex along the coasts of California, Oregon and Washington. In the opinion, Magistrate Judge Nandor Vadas ruled that NMFSs prior approval of the Navys activities there failed to use the best available science to assess the extent and duration of impacts to the marine mammals. As a result of the ruling, NMFS must reassess its permits to ensure that the Navys activities comply with protective measures per the Endangered Species Act. This is a victory for dozens of protected species of marine mammals, including critically endangered Southern Resident orcas, blue whales, humpback whales, dolphins and porpoises, says Steve Mashuda, an attorney with the environmental law firm, Earthjustice, which represented the coalition in the lawsuit. The recent ruling will no doubt be challenged. Also, the Navy still has the green light to use sonar and do weapons testing off the East Coast despite the risks. Concerned readers can send a message through the NRDC website calling on U.S. Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel to direct the Navy to adopt safeguards to protect marine mammals during training without sacrificing national security.

Summer before last, we were tempted to buy a newer car even though we hadnt saved what we would need. We refer to our car as The Old Lady because cars are like dogs. You just multiply a cars mechanical age times seven to get the actual age. That makes The Old Lady 105 (15 x 7105). She was born in 1998 and we remember her fondly when she was a baby. I love the smell of new baby cars, but I love having NO CAR PAYMENT better! Planning our car trip that summer with some of our children and grandchildren, we knew wed be travelling over the Continental Divide which meant some seriously high mountains! Sometimes The Old Lady had difficulty climbing 800 feet to our home especially when it was really hot outside. Typically her temperature would rise above normal and by the time wed get in our garage, shed pee all over the floor. With our concern over her ability to make it over the mountains knowing it was summer and could be very hot, we took her to the doctor. Dr. Jim at Daves Auto Repair and Used Car Sales gave her a checkup and proclaimed everything looked pretty good. However when asked if he would take her on the trip, he answered, I cant answer that. Shed had a heart transplant in 2007, but he explained, When we gave The Old Lady a new heart she was still left with the old veins and other organs. In keeping with my own teachings in the GOOD Book: Get Out Of Debt, we had promised ourselves we would not buy another car on credit, so the thought of doing that was just a brief consideration. When Dr. Jim wouldnt answer our question (medical liability issues I guess) we thought about renting a car. In the end we decided since we were going on the trip in two cars, if The Old Lady died along the way, wed just leave her and join our kids in their van. We headed out with two gallons of water in the trunk (in case of an accident ahemm) and a case of oil (she tends to lose vital fluids). Our first test of her wellbeing was over the Cascade Mountains. When we got to Timberline Lodge (approximately 7,000 feet) she peed all over the parking lot in front of skiers and tourists alike. It was one thing to have it happen in the privacy of our own garage, but in public, well it was very embarrassing. After she cooled down, we gave her a gallon of water which she gulped appreciatively. We proceeded to head east to spend time with Terrys cousin and his wife. I told the relatives of her problem and both being devout Christians they prayed over The Old Lady. I felt the prayer was really directed more at us, that if she died wed be able to handle the loss in a positive way. Turns out The Old Lady has never had another accident! We proceeded to travel more than 2,500 miles over hill, dale and mountain in temperatures that soared into three digits many days. It has been a couple of years since the prayer, and The Old Lady has not had a problem with the 800foot hill to our home, either. Really now, the only real problem we have with The Old Lady is that shes a liar. When she says she can go 50 miles until a fill up, she can really just go ten. How I found that out is another story.

A18THEGADSDENCOUNTYTIMES THURSDAY, NOVEMBER21, 2013 WWW.GADCOTIMES.COM By TIM LINAFELT In the end, the only noticeable difference in Jameis Winston on Saturday might have been his shirt. Florida States quarterback walked into his usual post-game interview session after the Seminoles 59-3 win wearing his usual suit, tie and sandals combo. This time, though, he apparently didnt have time to tuck in his shirt. Otherwise, thats about it. He flashed his usual smile. He joked about plays that he made and plays that he might catch an earful for in team meetings this week. And, as usual, he de ected praise to his teammates instead of basking in it himself. Its a quarterbacks dream to be out there with those guys, Winston said. One thing about Florida State, were a big family. We stay inside the family. News broke on Wednesday that Winston is tied to a sexual assault investigation stemming from an incident that occurred in December, 2012. His meeting with the media on that day, mere hours after gossip website TMZ reported that he was linked to the investigation, was a stark contrast to Saturday. On Wednesday, he smiled while answering only football-related queries under orders from FSU but it didnt take long for things to become awkward as the obvious questions went unasked. Winston typically has reporters hanging on his every word, and can effortlessly carry a room for 15 or 20 minutes. On Wednesday, his session lasted just ve. The days that followed produced question after question but offered very little in the way of answers. Winston on Saturday produced a very, very small one: Florida States offense is still in very capable hands with him at the helm.The redshirt freshman torched Syracuse for 277 yards and two touchdowns in what has become his usual light workload this time just two quarters. Winston completed his rst 11 passing attempts and nished the day 19 of 21, his most accurate performance since his 25-for-27 debut at Pittsburgh. I thought Jameis played exceptionally well, FSU coach Jimbo Fisher said. His mind was really in the game. His most impressive moment, though, may have come without the ball in his hands. Early in the rst quarter, Winston handed the ball to speedy freshman Kermit Whit eld, who promptly started right, cut back across the middle and tore down the left sideline with the end zone in his sight. As Syracuse cornerback Julian Whigham sprinted across the field to maybe make a touchdown-saving tackle, No. 5 entered the frame, sprinting and then diving to make a block that ensured Whit elds 74-yard score. Anything for our team to have success, Im down for it, Winston said. You dont really see that out of your quarterback, especially a guy who is in his position, defensive tackleTimmy Jernigan said. A lot of guys that are that good of a player, they dont want to get hurt, dont want to take the chance. It gives you a reason to want to go out and fight for them, get the ball back to him. Fisher talks all the time about eliminating the clutter a fancy way to remind his players to ignore outside distractions. Of course, its one thing to do that when clutter comes in the form of poll jockeying or awards races. The kind of potential distraction that hovered over Tallahassee this week is another matter entirely. And it wont blow over just because FSU blew out yet another hapless ACC opponent. What Winston is facing cant be understated to diminish it by calling it a distraction would be wrong. What happens on the football eld is completely irrelevant compared to the seriousness of what could be life-altering allegations. But the Seminoles are made up of more than just Jameis Winston. And they all showed that, at least on the eld, nothing has changed. By MARTY COHEN Each week, in the aftermath of another Florida loss, there was still a carrot dangling controlling their own destiny in the SEC East, still alive in the division race, chance to knock off a hated rival, chance for a decent season and a bowl game, chance to play at home for the rst time in a month, chance to . The carrot, shes gone, and there is no Bugs Bunny ready with another carrot for another day. Oh sure, theres the opportunity to upset South Carolina and ruin the Gamecocks chances to go to Atlanta, but thats pretty hard to conceive after the latest display, the dismal 34-17 loss to Vanderbilt. And theres the looming contest with Florida State, with the shot to spoil the Seminoles national championship hopes. Only problem is, were talking reality here, and in the current state of Florida football, knocking off a team like South Carolina, and especially Florida State, is beyond far-fetched. Hey, beating Georgia Southern is no sure thing. Bet the folks at Toledo are kicking themselves for letting the season opener get away. We have officially entered the realm where rock has rmly met bottom the Gators just lost to Vanderbilt Vanderbilt for the fi rst time since 1988, when Emmitt Smith was hurt and the Gators lost four in a row, scoring 23 points in the process. And its not just that these Gators fell to the Commodores, unthinkable on the surface, but truthfully, they were hardly even in the game. Vandy led from start to nish, a recurring theme for the Gators, who have not had a lead for 15 straight quarters, since they entered the second quarter at LSU ahead 3-0 (the Tigers would score a touchdown four seconds into the period). In fact, in Floridas ve losses, the Gators have led for all of 4:32 thats out of 300 minutes. Unbelievable. Yet here were the Gators in the midst of the same old thing (what were doing so far isnt working keep doing the same stuff youll get the same results, head coach Will Muschamp repeated again after the game), winning the coin toss and deferring the option to the second half, like always. Why? Why not do something different, anything? Take the ball rst, try an onside kick, anything to snap the doldrums that surround this program. The Gators have been a lousy rstquarter team, but so has Vanderbilt, in fact, the Commodores entered with worse numbers in the rst 15 minutes in their four losses this season, they were out-scored 72-0 in the rst quarter. So instead, as always Florida kicks off and the defense picks up where it left off against Georgia, allowing the Commodores to methodically march down the eld, holding the ball for seven minutes and kicking a eld goal. Nice way to seize the early momentum. Everybody wants to put their nger on one thing and say, This is what it is. Thats not the way it works, Muschamp said. Theres multiple things that have got to get corrected and we will. The strain of this four-game losing streak has started to wear on Muschamp. As much as you try to build a cocoon, it doesnt work that way and he knows the natives are beyond restless. He momentarily lost his cool when coming off the eld last week after the Georgia loss, getting into a bit of an exchange with a Gator fan.

In honor of Veterans Day, Smith spoke first of resources that Workforce Plus offers to veterans. We have a trained staff that will assist veterans with their specific needs, said Smith. Whether its assessments or case management, we have programs that cater to their needs. Smith also discussed Startup Quest, a new Workforce Plus program that trains individuals with college degrees to become entrepreneurs and educates them about technologies being developed at Floridas universities and federal laboratories. Workforce Plus will also host a job fair and expo on Thursday, Jan. 16, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Leon County Civic Center. For information, visit www.wfplus.org/. The final speaker of the evening was Anthony Fedd, site director at the BASF clay mine in Quincy. Fedds work with TCC served as a prime example of what the stakeholders meeting was all about collaboration. Ive recently established a strong relationship with the advanced manufacturing training center, working with Bruce Batton to bring the production technician certification into our facility, said Fedd. Fedd explained that many of his BASF employees are comprised of former East Gadsden High School students who did not go to college. Everybody doesnt have to go to college, but you need to have some skill that you can provide, said Fedd. Im working with East Gadsden High in hopes that those individuals who decide not to go to college can work towards attaining that production technician cert fication. TCCContinued from Page A3 North Florida community leader Clarence Jackson recently announced his candidacy for Seat 8 in the Florida House of Representatives. Jackson served as mayor from 2011-2013 after first being elected to the city commission in 2010. As a leading municipal official, he has been a key figure in the unparalleled and unprecedented economic growth and development the city has seen over the past four years. Through annexation, public-private partnerships and operating with a balanced budget, the framework for greater growth in Gretna has been established under his watch. Jackson not only has municipal experience but he also has a proven record of commitment to community. Currently he serves on the board of directors for the Gadsden Tourist Development Council, Vice Chairman of The Gadsden Community Health Council, and serves as board member of the Big Bends leading HIV/AIDS service organization, Big Bend Cares. Throughout the years Jackson has been lauded by state and local governmental bodies for his tireless efforts as a community servant. In 2000 he received the key to the city of Chattahoochee and in 2010 he was recognized by State Representative Alan Williams for efforts in support of the Clinton-Bush Haiti Earthquake relief initiative. In 2013 he was honored by Gov. Rick Scott for his commitment to Faith Based Outreach where he spoke before the governor and cabinet about his ministrys efforts to provide a constant supply of food and clothing through the Farm Share Project and other partnerships. Jackson is a graduate of Leadership Tallahassee Class 28 and this past January, Tallahassee Community College featured Jackson in the Cherry Alexander African American History Calendar in honor of his outstanding efforts to give back to the community that he and his wife, Dee, have been proud to call home and raise their family in. For 20 years he has been a minister and in 2013 launched The Destiny Center Tallahassee where he serves as lead pastor. Asked about his endorsement of Jackson, Former Speaker of the Florida House of Representatives James Harold Thompson said, Ive known Clarence his whole life and Im very proud of his accomplishments and his commitment to civic duty. He will make an excellent member of the Florida House and represent District 8 and Florida well. MIDWAY On Wednesday, Nov. 6, Brad Johnson of Tallahassee announced his candidacy for State Representative, District 8. It is my humble pleasure and honor to announce that I will run for State Representative for District 8, said Johnson. I am excited about being in a position to continue serving the folks of both Leon and Gadsden Counties. It is just amazing that I may have the opportunity to serve in the Legislature. Johnson believes both Gadsden and Leon County need new paths cultivated for them in order to go into a new direction. With the support of countless families throughout the district, Johnson will fight for statewide issues that will improve the local economy of both counties by increasing job opportunities through agribusiness, improving the digital divide, while simultaneously ensuring that our children receive a firstclass education and fighting for adequate healthcare services that will enhance the living standards for all citizens, especially for senior citizens and infants. I understand what it is like to wonder if the insurance company will cover a medical expense for a loved one, said Johnson. No one should ever have those concerns. By focusing on getting adequate healthcare services for everyone, we will all be able to live healthier more fulfilling lives. Johnson, a product of the Leon County school system and a graduate of Florida A&M University with a degree in Agribusiness professional experience includes: the City of Tallahassee City Managers Office; the Gadsden County Board of County Commissioners County Managers Office; the Office of Public Information and Intergovernmental Affairs with the Gadsden County Board of County Commissioners and the United States House of Representatives, Office of former Congressman F. Allen Boyd, Jr. Currently, Brad serves as the Community Relations & External Affairs Aide for City of Tallahassee Mayor John R. Marks, III. This role entails serving as a community lead for the Mayor, as well as creating and strengthening relationships with key local, state and national leaders. Brad enjoys spending a great deal of his personal time with family, and giving back to a community that so graciously gave to him. Brad is an avid mentor, he serves on the board of directors for several community organizations and is a proud member of the Omega Psi Phi Fraternity Inc. Brad is the grandson of James Muse and the late Earnestine Muse of Midway and the son of Vicki Muse Johnson of Midway and Lee Johnson of Waycross, Ga. Brad is a member of Tabernacle Missionary Baptist Church in Tallahassee, and is married to the former Jamie Hatfield of Royal Palm Beach. Together they share a daughter, Jayleigh Rose. Johnson announced at 654 Martin Luther King Blvd, Midway, where five generations of his family have lived. Currently Johnsons maternal grandfather resides in the home.

Bobcat boys drop two in tip-off tourney With new head coach Joey Birdsong at the helm, the Robert F. Munroe Basketball team began the 2013-14 season with two losses in the Ponce De Leon tip-off tournament this past Thursday and Friday. In the first game, the Bobcats fell to host Ponce De Leon by the score of 69-34. Senior Jalyn Lewis scored 12 points to lead all Bobcat scorers. We didnt execute very well defensively, said Birdsong. We stayed in man defense due to the short time weve had our full squad out (football recently ended), and we werent very good at boxing out and got outrebounded significantly. We also didnt communicate like we will need to in order to be successful. As we get more practice and game experience under our belts, the results will improve. The story of the game was second chance opportunity for Ponce De Leon, who seemed to get two and three offensive rebounds and shots on each possession and subsequently raced out to a commanding early lead that they never relinquished. The second game seemed to confirm the old axiom that the greatest improvement a team can show will be between their first County girls basketball season starts The Munroe basketball team went 1-2 last week in opening season action but the team did manage to pick up the win where it mattered most. LIBERTY COUNTY 52 MUNROE 32 The team lost their season opener at Liberty County by a 5232 score although the halftime score was tied at 19-19. A fourpoint third quarter by Munroe doomed the Lady Cats, while the Bulldogs scored 16. They were also outscored in the fourth quarter 17-9. Leading in scoring for the Lady Cats was Kadejah Glynn with 10 points followed by Anna Jones with nine. POPLAR SPRINGS 56 MUNROE 29 A close first quarter opened up in the second as Poplar Springs went on to beat Munroe 56-29. Maddey Pappadakis led with nine points, followed by Kadejah Glynn with eight. MUNROE 43 TALLAVANA 40 Glynn and Pappadakis scored nine points each and Anna Jones hit a key three-pointer for Munroe to defeat Tallavana Christian in district See GIRLS/ Page A24 See BOYS/ Page A24

Gadsden Central Academy celebrated the retirement of one of its beloved teachers, Barbara Green Kelly. Kelly has been educating children for the past 37 years, the last 10 years of which has been in Gadsden County. Family, friends and district officials joined the GCA staff Oct. 28 to honor her years of dedicated service to the children of Gadsden County. Kelly received congratulations in the form of personal reflections, a musical solo, praise dance and more. Mrs. Gaines, site administrator, presented her with a plaque, flowers and money tree from the staff. Kelly has plans to stay busy by traveling, continuing to work in her church Bethel AME and dedicating more countless hours as a member of the Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority Inc. Kelly will officially retire on Nov. 30 and she will be missed. WWW.GADCOTIMES.COMTHEGADSDENCOUNTYTIMES THURSDAY, NOVEMBER21, 2013 A23 Whats Up?

Beloved teacher retires from Gadsden Central Academy Barbara Green Kelly celebrates her upcoming retirement from Gadsden Central Academy. Photo submitted persons closest friends or family, you can help far more than you imagine simply by being encouraging and supportive, says Barr, who works exclusively with cancer patients and their loved ones. I understand people dont always know what to say to someone whos just been diagnosed or is in the midst of treatments and yes, sometimes they do say the wrong thing, Barr says. I remind my patients often to refuse to listen to cancer horror stories, so please, dont tell those! While everyone is different, Barr says that shes found a few things her patients consistently say benefit them: Sometimes saying nothing at all says everything. If your friend or loved one wants to talk about her treatments, complain about his situation, or not talk at all, being a good listener or simply a quiet presence speaks volumes. When a person complains, many of us jump to help by suggesting solutions. Thats likely not what your friend or loved one is looking for. As my patients have said time and time again, sometimes they just want to get it all off their chest. An empathetic listener is all the help they need. Make your offer of help specific. Call me if you need anything at all, puts the burden on your loved one who already carries a tremendous burden! Instead, you might offer to make dinner for her family on Wednesday night and ask what meal everyone enjoys. Or volunteer to drive him to his doctor appointment on Monday afternoon. This makes it easy for your friend to politely accept or decline your offer, and it ensures you provide the assistance you feel comfortable providing. Not sure what to talk about? Follow his lead. Some days, my patients want to talk only about their illness, the treatment theyre undergoing, and how they feel. Other days, they want to talk about anything BUT cancer. We all have days when were immersed in our own lives and other days when we want to be distracted or to just feel normal. If youre not sure what to say, err on the side of being positive. Dont say what you dont know for instance, you dont know that everything is going to be just fine. But if you admire your loved ones strength or sense of humor, if your friends attitude inspires you, tell them so. We all benefit from hearing a sincere compliment. When a person whos going through what may be the most difficult, stressful event of their lives knows that you care, it makes a difference, Barr says. If youre truly at a loss for words, it never hurts to simply say, Im thinking about you. *as of Jan. 1, 2012; National Cancer Institute Niki Barr, Ph.D., founded a pioneering psychotherapy practice dedicated to working with cancer patients in all stages of the disease, along with their family members, caregivers and friends. In her book, she describes an emotional wellness toolbox patients can put together with effective and simple strategies, ready to use at any time, for helping them move forward through cancer. Dr. Barr is a dynamic and popular speaker, sharing her insights with cancer patients and clinicians across the nation. If you would like to run the above article, please feel free to do so. I am able to provide images if you would like some to accompany it. If youre interested in interviewing Dr. Barr or having her write an exclusive article for you, let me know and Ill gladly work out details. Lastly, please let me know if youd be interested in receiving a copy of her book, Emotional Wellness, for possible review.

Scott led all scorers with 22 points, and Taniah Lockwood added 15. Munroe moved to 12 on the year. GIRLSContinued from Page A20 and second outings, as the Bobcats lost a close one to defending state champs Holmes County (Bonifay) 59-55. Lewis once again led the Bobcat scoring, as the transfer from Jacksonville First Coast poured in a game-high 30 points before fouling out midway through the final quarter. Juniors Max Baroody and Sean Newton led a more intense and efficient defensive charge and controlled the defensive glass for most of the night. We definitely stepped up the intensity defensively, said Birdsong. I have to remember it is going to be a process since we have only four returning varsity players. But our bench is pretty deep and we have 12 guys who can come in and contribute. As we continue to develop, that factor will only help us. Im pleased in how we responded in a 24 hour period. The Bobcats head quickly back into action with their first home game Monday evening against the Bulldogs of Liberty County. The Bobcats varsity roster includes seniors Jalyn Lewis, Blake Norman and Josh Darby; juniors Max Baroody, Sean Newton, Joey Sloan, Bradley Klees, Casey Mathers and Will Harris; sophomores Deron Barkley and Cole Skipper and eighthgrader Kyle Skipper.
