THURSDAY, JANUARY30, 2014 WWW.GADCOTIMES.COM VOLUME113/ISSUE5 50 12 PAGES, 1 SECTIONBobcats end dry spell/A2 The Quincy Police Department investigated a noticeably larger number of burglaries during the months of November and December. This period is typically marked by higher reports of thefts and burglaries due to the vast amount of holiday shopping by consumers. On Nov. 29, QPD responded to a burglary of a local dentists office in Quincy. Several credit cards were taken during this crime. Several days later police discovered the suspect had used the credit cards at businesses in Quincy and Tallahassee. Police were able to obtain surveillance evidence of the suspect using the credit cards at several of the businesses. On Jan. 14, QPD investigated a burglary which had occurred at a local school in Quincy. Police were able to locate and obtain video evidence of this crime as well. Using witnesses and police, QPD was able to identify the suspect in both of these crimes as Antonio Richardson of Quincy. Once Richardson was taken into custody, Quincy Police began to link other persons to him and determine that their activities also had a Tallahassee connection. By working with Antonio Richardson Jaron Snell NEWS BRIEFS Schools closed Wednesday over weather concernsThe threat of a mixture of ice and snow that could leave roads slick and dangerous led Gadsden County school officials to announce Tuesday afternoon that schools would be closed Wednesday. This includes all public schools as well as Tallavana Christian School and Robert F. Munroe Day School. The National Weather Service issued a winter storm warning at 4:20 p.m. Tuesday in effect until 7 p.m. Jan. 29 for Gadsden County. A thin glaze of ice was expected to accumulate over Tuesday night as far south as the Panhandle and Big Bend. Gadsden County Schools Superintendent Reginald James said the Tuesday basketball game between East Gadsden High School and Rickards High School was also cancelled. Midway officials announced Midway City Hall would be closed Wednesday. County offices will be open. Quincy City Manager Jack McLean said the city government offices would be open and if power outages became an issue, the Joe Ferolito Recreation Center would be opened as a temporary shelter for those without power and heat at home, but those using the shelter should bring blankets and food. McLean said the shelter would open at 6 a.m. Wednesday. For those on the city of Quincys utilities cutoff list, McLean said there would be no power cut-offs over the next couple of days because of the cold weather. National Weather Service Forecaster Jeanie McDermott said the icy precipitation was expected to end late Wednesday morning, followed by snow flurries, though no accumulation was expected. She said Wednesday and Wednesday night would be very cold with a bit of a warm-up Thursday with highs in the low 50s followed by nice weather for the weekend.

Photo by Cheri Harris TERRANCE CHISOLMTimes Sports CorrespondentThis past Thursday night the Jaguars jumped out to a 6-0 lead at home against the Seminoles in the first few minutes of the first quarter. Jaguars Head Coach Bobby Parrish said, This was the worst game weve played all year. Florida High produced their first points of the game from the free-throw line with 4:30 left in the first quarter. Florida High began to find their stroke from the field and after a three-point shot with 1:48 remaining in the first quarter, they sliced into the Jaguars lead by a score of 8-6. East Gadsden quickly regained control of the game; a three-pointer by Jajuan Perkins with less than a minute to play in the opening period extended the home teams lead to 14-6. The Jaguars late run at the end of the opening quarter resulted in a 16-8 advantage going into the second quarter. Both teams went scoreless for nearly the entire first two minutes of the second quarter. The Seminoles ended the scoring drought with an and-one lay-up near the six-minute mark of the second period; after missing the free throw, the Seminoles trailed 16-10. Florida High also did a good job of executing their 2-3 defense, which caused East Gadsden to commit a few turnovers and settle for jump shots. John Fain was able to draw a foul on an aggressive drive with 2:01 remaining in the first half; after making one of his shots from the free-throw line the Jaguars held a 22-17 lead. Florida High continued to play tough defense in the final minutes of the first half and came up with several big blocks. East Gadsden withstood Florida Highs second-quarter push and took a small 25-22 lead into the half. The first period of the second half was an intense quarter that began with a nice block by Nick Byrd on the Seminoles first shot attempt. Good defense from both teams during the first half of the third quarter allowed very little scoring. Florida High tied the game up by a score of 26-26 with just less than three minutes left to play in the period. With the game close, Fain began to penetrate to the basket again and his slashing drive to the basket with a few seconds remaining in the third gave the Jaguars a 34-29 lead. The Jaguars carried their momentum over to the final quarter and quickly extended their lead to 39-29 as 7:29 remained in the game. Rather than folding under pressure the Seminoles continued to fight and scored 10 unanswered points to tie the game up 3939 with 4:49 left in the fourth quarter. Once again Fain put his team on his back and began to relentlessly drive to the basket, and with just over three minutes to play, he put his team up by a score of 46-41 after making one of his free throws. East GadsSee EGHS / Page A3 CURT WILKERSONTimes CorrespondentRecently retired Gadsden County educator Linda Jones was honored at the Jan. 21 meeting of the Gadsden County Board of County Commissioners (BoCC). Jones retired after a 31-year career as a teacher and administrator. Additionally, Jones has served as the public relations director for the Gadsden County Chapter of the Retired Educators Association, is an active member of the Veterans of Foreign Wars and has also worked with the Havana chapter of 4-H. As a caring educator, Miss Jones was always concerned that a students need for quality education remains her first priority, Chairman Eric Hinson read from an honorary resolution. She never stopped learning so she could share an infinite amount of information with her students, in an ever changing world. Following the presentation, Clerk of Court Nicholas Thomas gave the cash in the bank report, saying the county has a total of $15.8 million in all combined accounts. Commissioner Sherrie Taylor asked if that amount represented a healthy financial status for the county and Thomas responded. $15.8 million is a lot, he said. This is the time of year that you are flush with cash because ad valorem tax revenues have been coming in. You are either at or above where you should be. In other business, the BoCC unanimously approved an interlocal agreement for the county to temporarily provide planning services to the city of Midway. The county will assist Midway, which currently has no city planner, in areas such as land development review and interpretation of developmental regulations, assessing a maximum fee of $23,500.

SUSIE MORRISTimes Sports CorrespondentEAST GADSDEN The East Gadsden Jaguars loped through contests with Lincoln and then Port St. Joe in their final regular season contests last week to run their record to an impressive 17-6. Coach Diane FrostWalker and her crew used double-digit scoring from four different players to defeat the Trojans 66-40. Dondrea Harris and Deambrenique Davis each scored 18 points to lead the way, with Davis hitting four 3pointers along the way. Junior Sharieka Gaymon scored 16 points and Kamliah Wiggins finished with 12. The Jaguar team handled Port St. Joe handily, winning 51-38. The team used a 16-6 first-quarter jump to lead the Sharks 25-16 at halftime. Dondrea Harris led in scoring with 15 points, followed by Keyaria James 14-point performance. This win ended the regular season for the Jaguars and gave them their 17th win as they moved into district play at Florida High. MUNROE The Munroe Lady Cats dropped both final contests last week, losing to John Paul II and Brookwood School. John Paul II won on Tuesday night by a 5631 score. Maddey Pappadakis led the Lady Cats with 19 points. The guard also had seven rebounds. Karleebeth Perkins led all rebounders with nine. On Thursday night Brookwood had all the offense and the Lady Cats mustered little in a 51-19 win for the Georgia team. Kadejah Glynn led her team with eight points. Hannah Wilde and Maddey Pappadakis added three steals each. Munroe ended their regular season 5-13. The Lady Cats are the second seed in their four-team district. They will face Aucilla this week in round one with the winner facing the winner of FAMU vs. Tallavana on Thursday, Jan. 30, at FAMU. TALLAVANA CHRISTIAN Tallavana finished their regular season with a 44-31 loss to North Florida Christian. NFC turned a close ballgame into a win by outscoring the Lions 20-10 in the final quarter.

Both teams came out and displayed an extreme look of focus during their pregame warmup drills. Though it was an away game for them, the Raiders had a good number of fans in attendance. Each team turned the ball over on its first offensive possession. As West Gadsden continued to turn the ball over throughout the first four minutes of the game, Rickards sophomore point guard Maurice Howard showcased his offensive abilities, accounting for seven of his teams first nine points of the game. The Raiders possessed a 9-2 lead over the Panthers with 4:32 remaining in the first quarter. The Panthers began to attack the rim in the bottom half of the first quarter, and as a result they were able to get back in the game by collecting points from the free-throw line. With less than a minute left in the opening period, the Raiders committed a costly foul on Arlist Kenons three-point attempt, which sent him to the line to take three shots. After making two of his attempts, West Gadsden took a 14-13 lead. Rickards carried a small 15-14 advantage into the second quarter.

After going winless all of last season and the beginning of this one, the Bobcats of Robert F. Munroe secured their first two victories with home wins over Poplar Springs on Tuesday, Jan. 14, and Brookwood on Thursday, Jan. 24. Weve begun playing better as a team, said Coach Joey Birdsong. Our team defense has been so much more efficient, and we are better at competing for rebounds. The kids are having fun, playing a lot looser and it is making a difference! True enough, the Bobcats have been much more competitive of late. Turnovers have been much lower than in the first half of the season, and the team rebounding has limited the second-chance baskets that have plagued them in their losses. Weve got one more week in the regular season and then the district tournament at FAMU, said Birdsong. We want to keep improving and finish as strong as we can. RFM 78 Poplar Springs 58 What started as a see-saw battle between two struggling teams turned into a rout as the Bobcats, leading 44-43 at the end of the third, outscored the visiting Atomics 29 to 15 in the final quarter.

The last minute of this game was very physical. Florida High began to intentionally foul the Jaguars in an attempt to force them to win from the freethrow line. The Seminoles came down court and nailed a three-pointer that cut the Jaguars lead to 51-50 with about 30 seconds left to play. The visitors battled until the final buzzer sounded, but in the end the Jaguars were able to make just enough of their free throw attempts as they pulled out a 54-53 win over Florida High. When asked about his feelings on the physicality of the game Coach Parrish gave a slight smile and said, I like to see that out of our guys; I havent seen that before but we must also hold our composure. law enforcement in Tallahassee, QPD was able to determine that an acquaintance of Richardsons had been allegedly pawning property in Tallahassee which had been taken during burglaries in Quincy during the holiday season. QPD Investigators were able to provide information on Jaron Snell of Quincy to TPD so that TPD could obtain arrest warrants on this suspect on felony property crime charges as well. The Quincy Police Department believes these suspects were involved in many crimes during this time period and that others were assisting them. This investigation is still ongoing and other arrests are possible. Arrested:Antonio Richardson, 27, 427 S.

As a well-networked advocate, a day does not pass without my receiving a stream of messages sounding the alarm Alert! ... Act today! A Must Do! ... Your Voice is Needed! I completely understand the need for good causes to send urgent messages, and I do my best to take action when I can. After all, my 35 years of family policy advocacy have not left me insensitive to the power of persuasion. That said, I am compelled to share my thoughts about the building blocks of effective advocacy. My experience points to this reality: Influencing someone youve never met, dont have a connection to and whose background, motivations and methods of leadership you have not made the effort to research often leads to frustration. Shouting out to a stranger just doesnt work. If you are not personally familiar with your elected officials, relating to someone who is connected (directly or indirectly) to your target decision-maker is the key to effective advocacy. I know what youre thinking: Jack is telling me that I will be listened to if I make the effort to learn advocacy, but hes ignoring the fact that special interests have already flooded the policy field and my one voice is drowned out by those with big bucks and clout. Let me assure you I understand but heres the key question: Are we willing to learn the skills and develop the strategies necessary to be effective, or is giving up to self-defeat our only recourse? Please dont let pessimism prevail! Have confidence and be optimistic about your potential. This is a nation in which the right to speak is a cherished value, but only if its exercised and protected. I assure you that you can make a difference if you unite with others, join organizations whose missions align with yours and develop your voice as a persuasive and passionate advocate. Trust me it takes work and courage but every one of us has the potential to be a powerful voice for a cause we sincerely believe in. In this first month of the year, what a wonderful time to resolve to strengthen our resolve to make our community and world a better place for all. A family legacy of advocacy Our nations experience with great challenges forces us to pose one basic question: What is really important to ourselves, to our families, and to our collective community? Lets remember to learn the lessons of our family historians, our tour guides to another time and to places we have never been. When my Grandma Minnie would raise her eyebrows and begin telling tales of her childhood in the Old Country, I knew it was time to lean in and listen. Her vivid images of the people and events captured my attention like a powerful magnet. I was stuck to her every word. I never knew my mother or father, she began, with a wistful shaking of her head. In those days people would catch a fever and die in a few weeks. Thats what happened. After they died, my mothers father and mother took care of my brother and me. When I was a girl, there were maybe 75 or 80 people in my village, and everyone I knew was poor, Minnie said. We lived in one-room shacks of wood with a hard dirt floor. There was an iron wood stove to one side with a pipe for the smoke to go out through the roof, and a few pieces of handmade furniture grouped together on the other side. My brother and I slept in one small bed, and my grandparents were in the other bed. There was a table, four chairs, and some open boxes for clothes, pots, pans and plates. The cooking was done in another shack, used by women from other families, too. And there was a well for clean water and a stream for washing and bathing. We all worked, growing vegetables and feeding the chickens, one cow and a few other animals. The boys sat with a man we called Rebbe, who was wasnt a real rabbi, but he knew the prayers and could read and write. He around to many other villages, eating with different families, and staying a week or so to give lessons. The girls didnt learn the prayers from Rebbe, but the boys would tell us the parts they remembered. This was my first taste of discrimination. When I was 12, everything changed. In 1905, there was a failed revolution in Moscow, an attempt to kill the czar and take over the palaces. We didnt know where Moscow was, we had only heard of the czar from traveling peddlers. We didnt care about any talk of revolution, but our lives were never the same. The Czar believed the trouble in Moscow was being bred in the countryside. In a few months time, bands of soldiers on horses, the Cossacks, swept through the villages, burning the shacks, killing the animals, violating the girls, torturing the boys and forcing us all to run for our lives. And run we did. As Minnie told her history, Id wonder how people could just move around from place to place, carrying what they owned in burlap sacks, and live to tell the tale. I was astonished that the words coming from her lips were not made-up stories, but real-life struggles and tragedies. How could this be? As a child of comfort and contentment, all of this was so different from anything I could ever imagine. Minnies stories of her immigrant experience are among my most cherished family treasures. I have no photographs of the people or scenes she left behind, only her vivid word pictures. This small womans story, in an almost matterof-fact narrative, was eloquent testimony to courage and survival. Hearing her history created for me a core belief that I needed to appreciate who she was and what she went through. She didnt ask for this adoration, but certainly deserved it from my perspective as a child. I am not alone in receiving the gift from my elders life treasury. Family history is a living legacy. Its not only the story of who our elders were, but it defines in many ways who we are. The history of forced emigration is so pervasive among people from diverse lands. Over the centuries, this nation has been, and continues to be populated by those whose lifes story is worth telling. Whether they came for freedom or by force in slavery, the values our grandparents brought with them are heirlooms our children deserve to inherit. Those who survived became advocates for causes and people who needed them. Their lifes mission was to make the world a bit better than the one they experienced. In Minnies case, womens suffrage was her cause, rooted in the discrimination she experienced as an immigrant teen who resolved to become a citizen and an active participant in what American democracy offered. After the passage of the 19th Amendment in 1920, our nations women won the right to vote at least those of European heritage. Minnie cast her first vote in November of that year and never missed a vote in her life. In 1982, at age 91, she had to be helped into the voting booth, but found the energy to do so, casting her last vote. Her pride of achieving justice was a lifelong mission. While Im not yet a grandparent, my appreciation of family history is translated to our sons, and perhaps someday, they will in turn have the opportunity to pass along the gift. Never hesitate to exercise your advocacy voice in respect for those who paved our path to a better future our valiant veterans, ardent activists and champions for causes which deserved passion. Please consider recording your family history, share the stories with your children and grandchildren, and make sure that treasured family photos are duplicated and records are kept safe and out of harms way. A4THEGADSDENCOUNTYTIMES THURSDAY, JANUARY30, 2014 WWW.GADCOTIMES.COMWho would you consider as an upstanding role model of today? I dont care how old you are; is there anyone living today you strive to be more like? Perhaps, President Obama, Jesus Christ, Alex Rodriguez, John Boehner, Mother Teresa, or perhaps, Madonna? Television and Hollywood actors tend to be role models for so many today, as has been the case for ever. One of my good friends, (Mulder, again), sent me an email yesterday with a list of the most popular actors and sports figures in America who had served their country during one of our engagements in a world war or Korea. I had heard of many of them, but I was staggered by the endless list of those notable people in America who had given up portions of their careers, and in some cases, all of a career, to serve this great country in one of the five military branches of service. I believe that anyone desiring to serve as President of this great country of ours, or even as a United States Congressman, should have had to serve a term of military service for God and country. America was founded on a belief in God and a sense of honor and duty to our homeland. If more people in power felt a sense of patriotism and duty to America we would all be better off today. How can the majority of those serving us today as elected legislators and executives care about how we electors feel or of our plight when they feel no sense of duty to God or country, but only to themselves? The late Pat Tillman, who had left a successful and lucrative professional football career with the Arizona Cardinals in 2002, is one of the few stars of today who left a successful career to join the military as a soldier. As you know, Tillman was killed two years later, in 2004, in Afghanistan. I did some research to find a list of todays actors and popular people in the news who have willingly spent some time in the military as I surely didnt want to slight todays stars. Tracy Marrow, better known as Ice-T, Montel Williams, and Bill Cosby have served in the military. J.R. Martinez was wounded in the Middle East. He starred in All My Children. Rob Riggle has also served. He is a correspondent for The Daily Show. What are we going to have to do as our part in restoring this free country of ours back to greatness? As for me, I am going to do my utmost to treat my fellow man as I would want to be treated in return. Doing unto others as you would have them do unto you goes back to the Bible: Luke 6:31. Like so many of you, I feel I have served my country the most honorable way that I could. I served in the military on active duty for almost eight years. I did my best trying to be an honorable man in front of approximately 100-125 students a day for 30 years. Today, I still attempt to maintain my high standard of living by striving to be inspirational in this column, an active church goer and a friendly neighbor. Im certain that most of you are no different than I, doing your best to continue being a fine citizen of this country and setting an example for all, no matter what your age is. Those of you who are young, please pick your role-models with care and strive to be someone great and noble, someone who others can look up to with hopes of being like you. God bless you.

Basically, its a clever means, either a punishment or a reward, to help you commit to something that you know will be difficult. Anyone who has ever been on a diet uses them: When I lose 10 pounds Ill treat myself to a new pair of shoes or a hot fudge sundae. Years ago, a Missouri man named Tony Balandran decided his gambling addiction was out of control so he chose as his commitment device a state-run program that gave the state his consent to be legally prosecuted for criminal trespassing if he ever went to a casino. It worked until he discovered a loophole. Since the casinos didnt require people to show their IDs, no one knew he was on the banned from casinos list. Everything was going well for him until he was dealt a seven-card straight flush in a pai gow game and suddenly his $5 bet was worth $3,750. However, his winning meant he had to show his ID, which meant the cops were called. Balandran was charged with criminal trespassing, he had to pay a fine and the casino got to keep the winnings. Another guy, Adam Scott from Ontario, after realizing what a shlub he was, decided to commit himself to a life of health and virtue and made a list of 42 things he would give up for 30 days. He called it his cold turkey list and recorded his progress in a series of YouTube videos, Cold Turkey Diaries. His commitment device was a check for $750 made out to Oprah Winfrey, the last person on earth he wanted to give money to. The YouTube videos, making his experiment public, added to his resolve. Halfway into his process he told an NPR reporter, Its working. The combination of guilt and fear of getting caught is effective so far. But on day 21 he accidentally put 2 percent milk in his coffee the milk, not the coffee was on his nono list thereby breaking his commitment. He immediately called his friend Scooby as an impartial referee. Scooby said since it was by mistake and not intentional it didnt count. Still, it ate at Scott. Even though he completed the rest of his 30 days with flawless obedience, that tiny bit of 2 percent milk stained his record. Even though Scooby had absolved him, Scott went ahead and sent Oprah the $750 with a letter explaining the reason for it. He wrote, I throw myself on the mercy of the Oprah and ask only that you adjudicate this matter fairly. Tonight I will sleep guilt-free. Oprah has never cashed the check, Scott told the NPR reporter. To me, these stories could be about how we approach God, either trying to find loopholes and ways to not get caught, or agonizing over minor, even accidental, slip-ups. I know of people, and have been one of them, to be guilty of both. Even though I know better, I find myself going into what I call penance mode, confessing and re-confessing decades-old sins, thinking of ways to be better spiritually and assigning myself rewards/punishments if I succeed/fail. And I always fail. Not only that, not even the best commitment device I or any of us can concoct can Nancy KennedyGRACE NOTES See GRACE Page A11 000H8UK 000H8EE 000H91M MEETING NOTICE The next regular meeting of the Board of County Commissioners will be Tuesday, February 4, 2014 starting at 6:00 p.m. The following items have been agendaed: Amendments and Approval of Agenda: Awards, Presentations and Appearances : Presentation From The American Red Cross Capital Area Chapter.

ANGELA SAPP Patricia Jones and Meaghan Sapp joined other FloridaLearns STEM Scholars in making presentations at the Statewide Advisory Board Annual meeting in Tallahassee. The FloridaLearns STEM Scholars project is focused on serving gifted and talented students in grades 9 to 12 who reside in small and rural school districts. During the summer of 2013, Patricia and Meaghan had opportunities to explore STEM careers at major universities. Patricia elaborated on her weeklong stay at the University of Florida Immersion into STEM experience, where she studied techniques and procedures used in scientific research. Meaghan talked about the two weeks she spent exploring cancer research as a Duke TIP Scholar in the Advanced Cancer Therapies Institute at Duke University. Both young ladies are seniors at East Gadsden High School. WWW.GADCOTIMES.COMTHEGADSDENCOUNTYTIMES THURSDAY, JANUARY30, 2014 A11 make me (or you) right with God to begin with or more right once we are his. Youve heard the saying To err is human, to forgive divine. Because were human, we err. Because God is God, he forgives. Like Adam Scott, no matter how diligent I may be, theres always that bit of 2 percent milk to spoil the record. Besides, like Tony Balandran, Im usually looking for loopholes, ways to not confront my innately sinful self. What we need is a commitment device that works and God has one for us: Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us (Titus 3:5). We throw ourselves on the mercy of God, and through faith in Jesus he adjudicates the matter fairly (to quote Adam Scott in his letter to Oprah), forgives completely and his grace covers it all. Gods commitment device works because its his commitment to us, not our commitment to him that matters. And because of that, we sleep guiltfree.

A12THEGADSDENCOUNTYTIMES THURSDAY, JANUARY30, 2014 WWW.GADCOTIMES.COM 000H8VN The Robert F. Munroe Bobcat Baseball teams will begin their 2014 season with an opening day ceremony Saturday, Feb. 2, at Bradford May Field. The activities will start at 2 p.m. and include team skills competitions, a Red and Gray inter-squad game, fan participation events and an alumni game. The RFM Baseball Boosters will also serve catfish dinners from 4 to 6 p.m. All proceeds will support the needs of Bobcat Baseball. One upcoming project will be the construction of a new covered batting and practice facility scheduled to be built in early February. This year, the Bobcats will be led by first-year Head Coach Jayme Williams, who replaces Chris Warfel after just one season. Coach Williams is excited about the upcoming season and expects the 2014 version of the Bobcats to be much improved. I think well be better than a year ago, Williams recently told the Boosters about the team that was dominated by sophomores and freshmen during the 2013 season. We should be pretty solid defensively. Well have to work to be better at the plate and on the mound, but a years growth by our roster will certainly help a great deal. The Bobcats will be led by seniors Myles Edwards and Steven Miller and returning juniors Bo Bailey, Will Harris, Bradley Klees, Casey Mathers, Sean Newton and Joey Sloan, who started or saw significant playing time last season. Joining the team this year are transfers Nolan Haire, Johnny Walkup and Jalyn Lewis. The Bobcats are also expected to field a JV team in addition to the usual varsity and middle-school teams. We hope to have a great crowd out for the opening day that will give our teams a great start for the upcoming season, said Williams. We should have all the basketball players out in the next week or so, and well work hard to be ready for the first contest. The Bobcats final schedule hasnt been released yet, but early indications are that there will be games with Maclay, Bonifay (Holmes County), Wakulla and Bainbridge (Ga.) in addition to district games with FAMU, Tallavana and Aucilla. the penalty, which caused the Panthers to continually attack the basket. Two trips to the charity stripe by senior center Marquis Foreman within the first two minutes of the quarter gave West Gadsden a 16-15 lead. The Panthers began to frustrate the Raiders by rolling their aggression over to the defensive side of the ball, causing the visitors to turn the ball over. With 1:46 left in the half, Foreman threw down his second dunk of the game and extended West Gadsdens lead by a score of 2817. Due largely in part to a big quarter played by Panther big men Devonte Gibson and Foreman, the home team went into the intermission of the game with a 32-23 advantage. West Gadsden put a lot of passion and intensity into the game during the last 12 minutes of the first half but because of several missed free throws, they also left a lot of points on the floor. The Panthers continued to get to the free-throw line in the third quarter. With 5:29 remaining in the period, junior guard Archie Albritton knocked down two free throws after being fouled on a strong drive to the basket, which pushed his teams lead to 38-28. The Raiders bounced back, and as Howard nailed another jumper with 1:30 to go in the third, they cut into the Panther lead by a score of 38-33. The last points of the quarter were scored by West Gadsdens freshman point guard Andrew Reddick, who hit two free throws to give his team a 42-33 advantage. The Raiders defensive troubles didnt go away in the final quarter of play, and after a few quick baskets by the Panthers, Rickards trailed by a score of 52-33 with 4:52 remaining in the last period. Maurice Howard, the Raiders three-point assassin, hit three huge shots from beyond the arch including a successful four-point play, but was unable to will his team to victory. As the final seconds ticked off the clock, the Panther Nation began to cheer as their team produced a big 68-62 victory over the Raiders. After stepping out of the locker room, an elated Devonte Gibson gave his impression of the game: It feels good; we had to bounce back after two losses to Godby and FAMU. We had to show everybody we are about serious business and on a mission. The Panthers leader Coach Moten also spoke after the win. We been struggling and Ive been telling them weve got to fight, he said. This is the first time our big guys fought hard inside, diving for balls and taking charges. Weve got to continue to play like this for the rest of the season. WGHSContinued from Page A2 with 42. Junior Will Harris added 11 and fellow junior Sean Newton scored nine points and collected 12 rebounds. RFM 44 Maclay 77 For one half, the Bobcats gave the home-standing Marauders all they wanted. The second half was a different story as RFM lost three players to fouls and Maclay cruised to the easy win. Jalyn Lewis tallied 19 to lead the Bobcats and Bradley Klees added eight points and 14 rebounds. RFM 43 Aucilla 46 Leading 43 to 41 with less than a minute to play, the Bobcats seemed destined to upset the rival Warriors, who had defeated them handily earlier in the season. But it was not to be. The Bobcats missed a layup and the Warriors Shawn Blue promptly hit a long three to turn the tables. This one hurt, said Birdsong. We had it and let it slip away. All we can do is learn from it and move forward. Jalyn Lewis was the leading scorer with 26 and also collected 11 rebounds. Sean Newton scored eight points and Bradley Klees added nine rebounds. RFM 47 John Paul II 64 The Bobcats fell behind early, suffering from some cold shooting and never caught up to the larger squad from JPII. They just dominated us on the boards, said Birdsong. Its disappointing because we have been so much better in this phase of the game here lately. JPII took advantage of several second and thirdchance baskets to keep the Bobcats at bay. Jalyn Lewis, again, led all scorers with 25 and Sean Newton scored 16 and secured 10 rebounds for the Bobcats. RFM 37 Altha 60 Playing without their leading scorer, the visiting Bobcats fell to Altha in an early afternoon contest. The Bobcats were led in scoring by Will Harris with 11 and Casey Mathers with nine. We actually played better than the score might indicate, said Birdsong. We had a couple of guys step up with Jalyn Lewis gone, and thats what a team is supposed to do. Its nice to see our confidence growing. RFM 55 Brookwood 52 Playing their best defensive game of the year, the Bobcats broke a 52-52 tie with 2 seconds left in the fourth quarter on a Jalyn Lewis threepointer from the top of the key. This one was sweet! said Birdsong. Weve come a long way since the early season. Brookwood is a well-coached team, and they beat us the first time we met (5746). I cant say enough about our defensive effort tonight. We played loose but intense with a lot of heart! The two teams exchanged the lead constantly with neither being able to get more than five points ahead. After Brookwoods Jacob Sloan hit a shot to tie it with 10 seconds left, the Bobcats inbounded to Lewis who launched what would be the winning shot with 2 seconds remaining. Lewis finished with 30 and Casey Mathers added nine to lead the Bobcat scoring. Max Baroody added eight rebounds. RFMContinued from Page A2 Play ball!
