CHERI HARRISTimesReading is in the spotlight at Gadsden County schools this week. George W. Munroe Elementary Schools Literacy Week celebration included several guest readers who stopped by Tuesday to read from some childrens books. Gadsden County Commission Chairman Eric Hinson was the first guest and, at the students urging, he started with a classic: The Cat in the Hat by Dr. Seuss. Before the read-in started, Hinson told the Timeshe has been involved with donating books to children in the past because he believes each child should have a shelf of books at home. A lot of folks dont understand that its OK to read, he said. He said it has also been shown that an increase in vocabulary is tied to an increase in self esteem. As an adult, he said his favorite book is an inspirational one: TNT: The Power Within You by Claude M. Bristol. But his favorite childrens books are all by one man: Dr. Seuss. Almost every book that he wrote is my favorite, Hinson said. Before he started reading to the students, Hinson told them, I want you guys to read about two books a week. Can you do that for me? Principal Erica THURSDAY, JANUARY16, 2014 WWW.GADCOTIMES.COM VOLUME113/ISSUE3 50 12 PAGES, 1 SECTIONLions prey on Panthers/A5 000H0KU CURT WILKERSONTimes CorrespondentGadsden County area entrepreneurs may soon have more help in starting a business if plans to turn Havana Elementary into a small business incubator move forward. If approved, the facility would have the capacity to offer affordable rental space to multiple tenants attempting to start new businesses. In addition to rental space, the incubator could offer startup businesses the chance to receive professional services and mentoring from members of the Gadsden County Development Council, as well as a chance to network with other area businesses. Because the project is still in planning stages, the potential costs associated with retrofitting the building have yet to be defined. County Administrator Robert Presnell was positive about the proposal but expressed reservations over the vacant school building being the proper site. I like the idea of the incubator fitting in with our new economic development efforts, but Im not particularly sold on that facility, said Presnell. Ive had some discussions with school board members about it, and they may have some other plans for that particular piece of property. Ill be asking our board (the county commission) to give us some guidance on whether or not they want to pursue it. An example of a successful business incubator is Tallahassees Innovation Park, which for years has been a major center for scientific research and development in North Florida. Businesses operating in Innovation Park work directly with the Economic Development Council of Tallahassee, providing them with an edge over the competition. The proposal will be voted on at the Jan. 21 meeting of the Gadsden County Board of County Commissioners.

These skills include walking on her own, using her right hand and reading. But she never stopped talking. Du Pont has been chatting with friends, family and other well-wishers from almost the very beginning. A birthday spent at a rehab center in Tallahassee turned into a lively affair, and a brief visit to her Quincy home around the holidays turned into another party as folks visiting the area for Christmas saw her car and just dropped in. It was fun, she said. And the love and kindness shown by members of the community since her illness have made an impression on the veteran journalist. I always knew Gadsden County was a caring place, she said. I always saw how they rallied around people but why would they do that for me? Some of them barely know me. And because of some of her past stories, Du Pont said she didnt think some of the people who have been kind to her even liked her. In her stroke recovery, Du Pont said she has already made a lot of progress from where she was a few months ago. And she did it on her own terms, refusing some steps along the way such as using a wheelchair or a rolling chair that also doubles as a walker. I was just determined that that wasnt me, she said. I decided I was not going to let a stroke define me because I am more than that. Ive been working hard. Ive been pushing myself. While some recollections from Du Ponts childhood are still coming back, she remembers Former Times Editor Alice Du Pont reflects on career, community, stroke recovery Alice Du Pont poses for a photo.

A4THEGADSDENCOUNTYTIMES THURSDAY, JANUARY16, 2014 WWW.GADCOTIMES.COMIstepped out my front door into the last lingering moments of evening, when I was nearly startled by a cheerful, Good morning, neighbor, from an unknown, youthful-sounding woman in the area of the house next door. I somehow returned with an immediate, good morning, myself, although I was still a little befuddled by such a rare occurrence as a pleasant greeting sounded out in the very early morning. The young lady who had greeted me was probably one of the two nieces of my next door neighbors. The sisters were down from Canada to visit their mom and dad who are staying with my neighbor, Bill and his wife, Nicole, while their parents new winter home is being built. Something as simple as that mere greeting was enough to help make the start of my day, or, perhaps, yours, in a similar situation, a pleasant one. I had never met either of the girls, in fact, I have never seen them. However, that cheerful good morning from one of them was so welcomed and appreciated. Whens the last time you were greeted by a cheerful early morning hello? Better yet, when was the last time you greeted someone with a few happy words? Perhaps, by nature, you are a pleasant person, and it is only natural for you to extend kind words to another. Greeting others comes naturally to me, most of the time. At others, I have to remind myself to be pleasant. I try to remember that as a friendly, and willing to please others, person, it is I who should take the initiative to greet another upon encountering someone on the street. As Christians, it is our responsibility to initiate a kind word or to extend kindness to another, especially to a stranger. In my new neighborhood, here at the Legacy, over-55 community, in Leesburg, when I encounter people while on my early morning walks or bike rides, I am impressed by the friendly greetings I receive each morning. Oftentimes, I am not the first to greet. It is that time of the year when the snowbirds from the North have invaded. Im sorry; they have every reason to be here, especially with the horrible weather theyve had to endure in those northern states and Canada, but I do feel like those of us who live here all year long have been invaded, although, a friendly invasion. Most of the snowbirds Ive met are friendly folk down here for a few months to enjoy our lovely Florida sunshine and have the rights and privileges that we who reside here all year have. I found myself caught in some real bad traffic a few days ago. I didnt think Id be able to drive my way out of Leesburg; there were so many cars on the road. It was like living in the nearly deserted town that I do, one day, and waking the next morning to find myself driving in New York City. From driving while relaxed one day, to having the car behind you riding your butt, the next, has been unnerving for me. It is just so sudden! I shared with Judy that I dont know if I can survive six months of snowbirds. Take me back to Tallahassee! My friend, Mulder, knows what Im talking about, as he shared with me recently that he couldnt live down here because of the radical change in life styles that six months can bring. Our friends and neighbors next door, Al and Shirley, have been so good to Judy and me and are helping us to learn how to live and cope in our suddenly and radically changed, once quiet, village, until we get used to living at this much faster tempo for the next four months or so. Shirley is 78, and Al is 87, and they drive around like people half their age. No snowbird is going to impinge on their lifestyle! We just have to go on appreciating the simple acts of kindness that we all have stored up in us somewhere and be willing to extend them to anyone we happen to meet, from wherever, along our daily journey through life. And, if youre one of those reluctant to extend a greeting for fear of the greeting not being returned, lighten up, and initiate a friendly hello and flash that becoming smile of yours. As you know, in these times, many you meet in the course of a day have little time or interest to be wasting it with exchanging meaningless, silly greetings or acts of kindness, as they have more important things on their minds and agendas. Im not surprised, although a little disappointed, whenever I greet someone and the greeting is not returned without even a nod. I just have to be content that my friendly gesture is what I believe is the right thing to do in todays cruel world and that some I encounter in my daily walk through life truly do have the weight of the world on their shoulders and have no desire or are unable to return a simple act of kindness. God bless you. Editors note: This column appeared last year in The Gadsden County Times in honor of the Martin Luther King Jr. Holiday and the Times is pleased to reprint it this year.It was late August, 1963. I was 12. I remember my father calling me into his room. The radio was on, and I heard cheering. It was not a baseball game kind of cheer it seemed louder and longer. It was a sustained roar. My dad, age 72 and blind, pointed in the direction of the radio with one hand, and put his other index finger to his lips he was telling me to be quiet and to listen. Next I heard the voice. A combination of speech and chanting. The cadence was like none I ever heard. The word music rose and fell, the power was like a wave swelling and then resting, soon to rise again. My fathers blind eyes were shining in the window light. He was tearful, his lips pursed, his head gently nodding in agreement, timed to the melody of the voice. Seeing my father so moved gave me a sense that history was being made. There, in that sun-bathed room, I was captured by the sound of that voice, and felt the power of its persuasion. I never saw my father so attentive. All of his energy focused on listening to the words. I have a dream that one day my four little children will live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character. And so even though we face the difficulties of today and tomorrow, I still have a dream. It is a dream deeply rooted in the American dream. I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal. Dr. Kings monumental speech commanded the attention of not only the half-million who gathered in view of Abraham Lincolns statue on the Washington Mall, but touched the hearts and influenced the minds of a nation to pay attention and take action. That speech on that sweltering August day ignited a charge of energy that would not be stopped not by gushing fire hoses, snarling dogs, enraged threats, church bombs or snipers bullets. At the tender age of 35, that eloquent preacher from Atlanta set in motion a flood of individual and collective actions which would change how people viewed not only our neighbors, but ourselves. The impact of that leaders courage was felt in that tumultuous decade of the 1960s, and for generations to come. The ideals of Dr. Kings mission were rooted in his Christian faith; his principles and civil disobedience techniques were borrowed from Gandhi. But no matter our faith, race, ethnicity, gender or age, the heroic vision and oratorical brilliance of Dr. King is a beacon for us all. In the 11-year period between 1957 and 1968, King traveled more than a half-million miles and spoke more than 2,500 times, appearing wherever there was injustice to be protested and action to be taken. At age 36, he was the youngest person to be awarded the Nobel Prize for Peace. Although his life was cut short at age 39 by an assassins bullet in April 1968, Dr. Kings legacy lives in anyone who chooses to question those who would hold us captive to old ideas and discriminatory policies. While Dr. King was by no means a perfect person in all of his personal behaviors (who among us is?), the courage and commitment of this one man has left a legacy which I believe should be taught to our young and admired for the lasting impact he created. Has all that Dr. King envisioned come to pass? Not yet. Has his legacy brought forth a tremendous surge of change in attitude, law, and economic opportunity? Yes. But theres so much still to be accomplished. Justice is not static; its active and must be actively asserted and strictly guarded every day. The fight for freedom has no limitations as long as the struggle for justice continues. Every generation has its opportunity and obligation to recognize problems and create solutions. If you wish to hear and/or read the entire text of the I Have a Dream speech, visit http://www.americanrhetoric.com/speeches/mlkihaveadream.htm/. I also recommend reading Dr. Kings Letter from a Birmingham Jail, written in April 1963 to his fellow pastors in which he reminds them that everything Adolph Hitler did in Nazi Germany was legal and all actions by German citizens to aid or comfort their Jewish neighbors were illegal. Practicing peaceful disobedience to unjust laws takes courage and the willingness to withstand criticism and rarely comes without cost. This poignant document of American historical significance calls to question the differences between right and wrong, justice and oppression. It is available at http://www.africa.upenn.edu/Articles_Gen/Letter_Birmingham.html/. In memory and in tribute to those who marched, fought and sacrificed for the rights we hold dear, being responsible citizens is one of our highest callings. Please remember, too, that our armed forces are ambassadors for our freedoms. You may disagree with policy decisions that put our fighting forces in harms way but they and their families deserve our respect and support during their service and if they survive, upon their return home. I believe we owe every public official, at every 4GEN JOURNAL Letters to the editorI am calling for our citizens to be more involved in who is running our city and who has our interests at the focal point rather than their greedy grabs for fame and fortune. It bothers me that our council grabs the first thing that comes along promising to do miracles. They dont check, take someone word. They are vulnerable, naive and gullible (one or all of the above). When you vote in 2015, be sure the ones on the ballot are qualified and are there to serve you instead of themselves. Council members in City Hall are usually selected to serve whims and desires of marionettes who pull the cord and their subjects do their bidding and carry out theirs wishes. Your probable candidates for 2015 districts: 1Mr. Charlie Smith, 3Ms. Deloris Madison, 5Mrs. Pamela Mann, 7Mrs. Alean Robinson. If these council members do not meet your needs, you have time to see if you can replace them instead of electing them and later trying to have a recall, which almost never succeeds. I am doing that, letting the uninformed citizens on what is going on. We have positions shown on organization chart, but I have asked many times, who has the titles, not a straight answer yet. I still want the answers /explanations. In the past certain council members contacted me on a regular basis now they change cell numbers and or ignore when my number shows up on their IDs. I had 14 years of hard labor while on the council. Ms. Pat Manor was City Manager at that time, Mr. Colston was mayor. I have the newspaper clipping with him on the front page. It had the caption, The election everyone forgot. Washington: Republicans & Democratsdescribes all of the years of my struggle at City Hall. The year 2007 and May 5, 2011 were the time that highlighted the resentment and hostility I endured. Midways government will never get fixed until some better hearts and Christians values and applications are created and employed. It will be a miracle that I would like to see.

After a three-week break for the Christmas holidays, the Robert F. Munroe Boys Basketball team hit the court this past Monday, beginning the second half of the season with three games against District 1-2A foe FAMU High School (Tuesday on the road and Friday at home) and Liberty County (in Bristol). The Bobcats, who are winless thus far for the season, got off to a slow start against the Baby Rattlers, leading the District at 5-0, before falling by the score of 86-24. FAMU was able to force many turnovers with a half-court trap that resulted in run-outs. The Bobcats were led in scoring by Jalyn Lewis with 16 points. Wednesdays match-up with border rival Liberty County didnt turn out much better for the Bobcats as they surrendered 32 first-quarter points to the hosts before falling 66-30. The Bulldogs cruised to the win and the Bobcats were left wondering yet again. Probably our most disappointing performance to date, said Bobcat Coach Joey Birdsong. We were competitive with this team the first time we faced them, and we were extremely flat this time. Our defense was without the energy we needed, and we had 20-plus turnovers. Its hard to be competitive like that. Friday night came and ended with another loss, again at the hands of FAMU 91-43. We actually played much better, despite the score, said Birdsong. We jumped out to a quick 6-0 lead and held our own for the first half. FAMU is probably the best team we play, and their superior size and skill eventually allowed them to pull away. Our energy was much better. One stat that Im proud of is that we only had 12 turnovers. This is something weve stressed and worked on, and I hope it is sinking in. The Bobcats top scorers were Jalyn Lewis with 27 and Will Harris with nine. Lewis, Sean Newton, Max Baroody, and Cole Skipper collected four rebounds each. The Bobcats season continues with three more contests this week, starting Tuesday with a home game against Poplar Springs (7:30 p.m.), Thursday on the road at Maclay (7 p.m.), and then a Friday matchup with District rival Aucilla Christian (7:30 p.m.). Fridays game also marks the crowning of Miss Munroe at halftime. WWW.GADCOTIMES.COMTHEGADSDENCOUNTYTIMES THURSDAY, JANUARY16, 2014 A5 $ 12 00 for 6 Months 000H2KJ Expires 1/31/14.

The Jaguars jumped out 20-15 in the first quarter and used that lead to finish off the win. They led 24-22 at the half. Sharieka Gaymon scored 12, Jamiya Bittle and Dondrea Harris 11 each, and DeAmbrenque Davis 10 points to round out the scoring. MUNROE On Tuesday night, FAMU scored an astounding 40 points in the first quarter and 30 points in the second quarter to lead 70-12 at the half. They dominated from start to finish and won 106-21. For Munroe, Maddey Pappadakis made two three-pointers and led in scoring with 8 points. On Friday night, the Lady Cats faced the Rattlers again, eventually succumbing to the tenacious, full-court press of FAMU. They did, however, handle it better Friday night and even scored several baskets off their press-break. FAMU led 26-12 at the end of the first quarter, which was quite different from the 40-6 firstquarter score from Tuesday nights matchup. The final score was Rattlers 74, Munroe 21 and FAMU went on to a second win of the week over district opponent Munroe. Although six Munroe players scored in the loss, no one scored more than six points. Karleebeth Perkins and Mary Pat Thomas each pulled down a hard-earned seven rebounds apiece. Munroe dropped to 4-9 overall and 1-2 in their Class 2A district. Panthers wince in defeat TERRANCE CHISOLMTimes Sports CorrespondentThis past Saturday night in Greensboro the Panthers jogged onto their home court and squared off against the Lions of Leon High. Both teams came out playing at a fast, aggressive pace that immediately excited the crowd. Leon scored the first points of the game by knocking down a threepointer with 7:39 remaining in the first quarter. Less than a minute later, West Gadsden took a 4-3 lead after receiving back-to-back lay-ups from Mark Bradwell and Andrew Reddick. The Lions roared back and regained an 11-8 advantage with 2:30 remaining in the opening quarter. The Panthers sharpshooter Lajarous Davis hit two shots from beyond the arch at the end of the period, which gave the home team a small 1413 lead as the first quarter came to a close. The opening quarter was an exciting back-and-forth battle that engaged the crowd and caused them to eagerly sit and wait for the start of the next quarter. The second quarter was a total contradiction of the first. The Lions came out and totally dominated the Panthers during the second period of the first half; 12 seconds into the quarter a Leon player got a nice floater to fall, which put them ahead by a score of 15-14. West Gadsden turned the ball over on their next possession and continued to commit mistakes throughout the remainder of the half. Leon did a great job of playing a tenacious press defense that produced several steals that they turned into points on the other end of the floor. A three-pointer by the visiting team with 5:10 left in the second extended their lead to 26-16. The Panthers offensive struggles continued and with 10 seconds left in the half Leon had tightened its grip on the game and held a 40-23 advantage heading into halftime. The third quarter was a duplicate of the second as Leon continued to impose its will on the Panthers. After a successful trip to the free-throw line with 6:10 remaining in the quarter, the Lions doubled the point total of the Panthers by a score of 46-23. The second half of the third quarter was highlighted with several dunks by the Lions, and as the quarter came to a close the visitors made three consecutive three-pointers, which pushed their lead to 63-34. Leon built onto its momentum in the finally period of play. The Lions got several good looks from beyond the arch and made most of them. The Panthers frustrations continued in the final quarter as they were outscored 24-16 in the period. The Lions scored the last basket of the game on a lay-up as they went on to win by a score of 87-50. After their tough loss the Panthers Head Coach Andrew Moten said, Ive got to give Leon credit; they played like men and we didnt. They played aggressive basketball. Our guys have got to step up we didnt meet the challenge. Weve got to get more physical. Well go back to the drawing board and get things corrected. Bobcats return to three-game slate after break

Of toenails and helicopters Not to get all TMI (too much information) on you, but I have this black spot on my toenail. When I first noticed it, my over-active, ultra-melodramatic imagination decided it was melanoma, and I only had three weeks to live. It turned out to be blood underneath the nail from the time I dropped something on it. The doctor diagnosed it as an owie and said it would take a long time for it to go away, that the spot would grow out as the nail grows. When I got home from the doctors I began watching it to see if I could detect progress. Have you ever watched your toenails grow? If not, its quite boring. Its like watching snails race in super slo-mo. Eventually, I lost interest in the progress of the black spot on my toenail until recently. Its moved! Now, instead of the spot being down by the cuticle, its moved up a few centimeters. However, as fascinating as that may be, I dont really want to talk about my toenail. I really want to talk about my recovery process for my chronic control freakism and helicopter parentism disorder. Frankly, its been a painfully slow recovery, probably because my case is so severe. On a scale of one to 10, I was diagnosed as a 47. Let me tell you, any mom who tries to top me in the helicopter parenting game (so named for parents who hover) isnt even playing in my league. When my now-30-yearold daughter moved 500 miles away to Charlotte, N.C., 10 years ago, I reattached her umbilical cord and tried my hardest to control her every waking moment through mental telepathy and email. One time shortly after she moved, she and her roommate decided to drive to Atlanta for a concert. In my opinion, no one should ever drive to Atlanta because, as everyone knows, everyone who ever drives to Atlanta never makes it out alive. (True fact.) So, I gave the umbilical cord a yank and fired off an email sermonette about the perils of the road and the virtues of staying home and saving her money and not putting herself in danger, physically or spiritually. I remember asking, Do you have a plan? Have you thought about what you would do if you got into an accident? Yada, yada, yada. She replied, Im not 12 and I dont appreciate you treating me like I am. Leave me alone. Obviously, she made it back to Charlotte safely, but thats only because I stayed vigilant for 72 hours straight, praying and crying and flying around in my helicopter. Thats just one of the documented 53,024 examples of my trying to be in control. At the time, I knew I was being a fruitcake and that I was wrong, but I couldnt not do it. To let go of my imagined control meant trusting God, which I truly wanted to do, but only in theory, not in practice. Too risky. He might fail me. Fast-forward 10 years. Somewhere, somehow, sometime during the past decade I began trusting God just a tad, maybe even more than a tad. It hasnt happened all at once, but slowly. Im gradually making progress.

We can at the same time debate and even disagree with their actions, but also show respect for the willingness to seek and hold office.

Think about it: Youre never afraid of someone you know loves you, right? There is no fear in love, the Bible says. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment (1 John 4:18). Therefore, if Jesus has taken my punishment with his death on the cross, all thats left is love. So, as I rest in Gods love for me, as well as for my children, the fear and the need for control subsides. I know this now because recently my daughter in Charlotte totaled her car. Shes fine, but shes currently dealing with all the insurance red tape, plus healing from her bumps and bruises and buying a new car and I havent even once been tempted to rev up my helicopter and take over all her decisions for her. In fact, I realized its been years since Ive even taken my copter out of the hanger. Its been slow, but I am making progress. Perfect love is driving out my fear.

She was an 11th-grader at Carter-Parramore High School in Beth Ponders class and she and a classmate contributed to a page devoted to news from the black community. Du Pont said the page was called News and Views of Gadsdens Colored People. That sounds offensive today, but Du Pont explained that at the time, there was virtually no minority news reported from the black community in area papers. They just did not publish black news unless it was crime, she said. The Timespage included weddings, funerals, church news and school news everything whittled down to one page. That was it, she said. Du Pont graduated in 1966 and then headed to FAMU, commuting for about a year and then moving on campus. She said she majored in English because back then the school did not offer a journalism degree but she knew she wanted to be a reporter. Thats all Ive ever wanted to be, she said. She worked in the schools public relations office and at the school newspaper, but she also discovered it was difficult to put her passion for writing and sports together because so few women back then were sports writers. She said when she covered some college football games, she was directed to sit outside of the press box and wait for someone to hand her stats from the game. For some reason they all called me little lady. And I hated it. She said they also offered advice: Little lady, why you doing this? You ought to be writing about cooking. Du Pont attended FAMU part-time and worked full-time, including a two-year stint at the schools sports information office until she graduated in 1974. I was a horrible student, Du Pont said, because I only wanted to take classes that I liked. After graduation, she went to work at the Tallahassee Democratwriting womens news and weather. Du Pont recalled her editor, Dorothy Clifford, as an old-fashioned womans editor who actually wore pumps and a strand of pearls to work every day. I think she might have been the last woman like that to exist, Du Pont mused. Later she covered other areas including school news and she covered FAMU. I felt like I could be fair, she said I could get more news about FAMU in the newspaper. She left that job in the mid-1970s to take a state public information job writing press releases. The money was better, but she got bored. She missed rushing out to cover breaking news, talking to people, waiting for sources to call her back and then writing as deadlines loomed ever nearer. Du Pont went to work for a TV station in Miami, essentially writing about new TV shows. Before she took the job, Du Pont recalled the writer she was replacing telling her, Good luck, little girl. She said she didnt discover what that meant until she realized she was the only black person on staff who wasnt a janitor. And in the s, another period of economic uncertainty, Du Pont said there seemed to be the attitude that she didnt know what she was doing and she was taking someone elses job a relatives or friends job. A white persons job. As a result, Du Pont said little things would go wrong like secretaries who never seemed to receive calls from anyone calling her back and assignments turned in that mysteriously vanished. But experiences like that were common in that era, she said, and her experiences were not as extreme as those of other black journalists. And while the best and brightest in the black community back then might have steered clear of journalism, Du Pont said those who stayed became a tough group and blazed the trail for the next generation. She left the TV station and went to work at FAMU for two years before she took a job working on then-presidential candidate Jimmy Carters campaign, and then for his administration in Washington, D.C. She said she worked there for a year until Ronald Reagan was elected and she got fired. I was so disappointed and let down, I came home and slept for two days, she said. From there she went to the Palm Beach Post. She said she stayed there about five years until her mother, Christina, asked her to move back to Quincy after her father, Ira Du Pont, died. She said her parents had been married for 66 years. Basically they only knew each other, and then he was gone, she said. Du Pont resigned her job the next day. She said she went to work in a friends Tallahassee office but he could tell she was just going through the motions. One day she said he showed her a newspaper ad: Alice, theres a job at The Gadsden County Times. Why dont you apply for it? You know youre not happy here. Alice said she waited until 4:30 on a stormy Friday afternoon to bring her resume to the Timesoffice. She had already made her mind up that she didnt have a shot: I know those white folks dont want any black woman working for them, so why am I wasting my time? She spoke to the editor and by 5 that stormy afternoon in the mid-1980s, she said he had offered her the job. While a reporters pay still hadnt improved, Du Pont said she enjoyed the job and her friends and neighbors were generous bringing her garden vegetables and fresh fish. If nothing else, you will never starve to death in Quincy, she said, because people just like to feed you. After the editor left, Alice said she took his slot, working with two young reporters and a total staff of about 30 and before she knew it, nearly 30 years went by. It passed so fast, she said. While Du Pont doesnt see journalism in her future, she knows her work isnt done. Everything that happens, happens for a reason, she said. You just never know what God has in store for you.

The kids like hearing outside people reading to them, she said. Literacy Week kicked off Monday with the Million Minute Marathon. Starling said for that statewide initiative, students across Florida spent 20 minutes reading at the same time. Other guest readers scheduled to read Tuesday were: Patricia Harris, a retired Gadsden County educator, School Board Member Audrey Lewis, Alricky Smith of the Department of Education, FSU Professor Dr. Headley White, and Blazing 102.3 radio personality DJ SpeedRacer.
