ROBERT ALLENTimes ReporterA unified and cohesive vision for community progress and what group might be functional enough to develop one was the chief topic of discussion when members of Gadsden Countys Chamber of Commerce held their monthly Go Gadsden meeting April 9 at the Tri-Eagle Sales facility in Midway. Ron Sachs, of Sachs Media Group, a Tallahassee-based public relations firm, spoke at the breakfast event. Sachs message urged Gadsden Countys business leaders to develop a clear and unified community vision and then institute it. I trust this business community to set an agenda, said Sachs. The public relations specialist and former journalist advised the chamber against allowing a government body to steer economic growth. Business works better, said Sachs at the beginning of his talk. Lets not wait for the government to lead. If theyre not doing their jobs, lets get ahead of them and lead.

Steven Taylor visited Quincy Music Theatre on April 14 to offer a master class designed to further prepare local talent to take their first steps into theatric careers. Taylor helped the aspiring performers better understand the audition process for securing professional roles. Before putting each participant through a mock audition and providing individual feedback, Taylor spoke about what to expect and how to handle it best. That he would take the time to do this here is just phenomenal, said Lori Strickland, vice president of QMTs board of directors. Despite a range of competitive experiences, including his current work with a travelling production of The Lion King, Taylor urged his class to be relaxed. Everybodys friends here, he said. Nobodys not going to get the job today. Taylor began the class by recreating part of an audition he recently did in New York City for an understudy part as Jafar in Aladdin. Dont psych yourself out, said Taylor. And dont be somebody youre not.

Three men opened fire with handguns at 4 p.m. April 11 inside Gadsden Arms Apartments on Stewart Street. According to an April 12 Quincy Police Department press release, the trio arrived in a black Nissan Titan truck, which had an extended cab and V-8 engine. The men stepped out and started shooting, wounding three. One of those wounded required surgery. Bullets also hit buildings and a vehicle, according to the report. One round entered a womans apartment, but she and her children were unhurt. According to an April 15 QPD press release, one man injured in the shooting told police he was playing outside with his children when he was approached by a man, later identified as Chazdin Jamarick Miller, 19, of 3313 Sunnyside Drive, Tallahassee. According to the same report, the man said Miller held a gun in each hand while he angrily complained about being sold bad Molly, a drug available in a wide range of purity, potency and chemical combinations. The man ran, trying to escape the gunfire, but he was shot in the back. Glenn Sapp, assistant chief of the Quincy Police Department, acknowledged gathering information for such shootings can be hard when citizens are afraid of retaliation if they speak with law enforcement. It will slow down the process, he said, during a recent Times interview.

According to Mike Wade, interim city manager, the city contributed $36,000 toward the service. The county contributed $36,000. And Big Bend Transit anticipated collecting $10,000 through fares. I dont think we need to be in the public transportation business, said Quincy Commissioner Andy Gay. According Wade, the transit company had only collected $3,500 through fares this year.

Easter is for laughing When I was a new Christian, I discovered a portrait of Jesus called the Laughing Christ at a Christian book store. At the time I was attending a serious church, a church where the thought of Jesus laughing was most likely frowned on. Maybe Jesus smiled at babies and puppies, but telling jokes with his friends? God forbid. Consequently, because the serious people at that serious church were so serious about their Christian faith, they presented Jesus as serious, too. Serious equals somber and sober, which equals humorless and kinda mean. Not that Jesus was mean, but some of his followers were. So, when I saw the Laughing Christ portrait, I found it appealing and compelling, yet rather confusing. That wasnt at all how I pictured Jesus. At that church, we sang, Ive got the joy, joy, joy, joy down in my heart, but frankly, that joy didnt seem to generate much laughter. That joy was way, way, way, way down in our hearts. There were some nice people at that church, but not too many who were fun to be around. Thankfully, we moved away after about a year and found friendlier churches. Over the years, that image of Jesus laughing has stayed with me. I love the thought of the son of God throwing back his head in utter delight. I believe that Easter is the reason Jesus laughed and the reason Christians should be serious about laughing, too. A few years ago, I found an account of some 15th-century Bavarian monks. As they pondered the meaning of the somber events of holy week Maundy Thursdays observance of Christs Last Supper and his agony in the Garden of Gethsemane, his arrest and trial and then Good Fridays remembrance of Christs brutal death on the Cross one of the monks started laughing, and not just an amused twitter. This was a big belly laugh. As the story goes, the monk told the other monks, Dont you see? The Resurrection was a joke the best joke in all history. When Jesus died, the devil thought he had won. But God had the last laugh on Easter when he raised Jesus from the dead. The monks called it Risus Paschalis, the Easter laugh. I love that! Jesus laughing, Bavarian monks laughing, ChrisNancy KennedyGRACE NOTES See GRACE / Page A17 14th annual LeMoyne Chain of Parks Art Festival set for this weekend TALLAHASSEE The 14th Annual LeMoyne Chain of Parks Art Festival will be from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. April 19 and 20 at the Bloxham and Lewis Parks in the Downtown Chain of Parks under Tallahassees beautiful moss-draped oak trees.

As LeMoyne celebrates its 50th anniversary serving the capital city area, we are excited to bring this premier fine art festival to downtown Tallahassee, said Festival Chair Kelly Dozier. During the past 14 years, the LeMoyne Chain of Parks Art Festival has grown in notoriety with artists and visitors, drawing the highest quality art and an increasing number of visitors to the festival.

FRANK CLEMENTE American Forum You pay your fair share of taxes. Small businesses do too. Its the price we pay to educate our kids, protect our communities and have some security in retirement. Why shouldnt some of Americas largest corporations pay their fair share too? Corporations are making record profits. But 111 profitable Fortune 500 companies paid zero federal income taxes in one or more of the past five years, according to a recent report by Citizens for Tax Justice. Whats worse 26 of them, including Boeing, General Electric and Verizon, paid nothing over the entire five ears. Astoundingly, they got tax refunds instead. General Electric, which in the past has been the focus of media attention because of its record of paying an extremely low income tax rate, provides a vivid example. GE earned a whopping $27.5 billion in profits between 2008 and 2012, but claimed $3 billion in tax refunds a federal income tax rate of negative 11 percent. Put another way, GE paid less in federal income taxes than you paid over five years. There is talk in Washington about overhauling the tax code. Corporate lobbyists are decrying the top corporate tax rate of 35 percent. They want you to focus on what corporations are supposed to pay instead of what they really pay. Thats because many corporations pay a lot less averaging little more than half the top rate 19.4 percent for all 288 companies in the Citizens for Tax Justice report (read it online at www.ctj.org/corporatetaxdodgers/sorrystateofcorptaxes.php). CEOs inevitably claim their companies pay every penny they owe and they are doing nothing illegal. Thats the problem its possible (but not guaranteed) that what theyre doing is perfectly legal. Thats because over the years corporate lobbyists have drilled so many holes into our tax code that it is like Swiss cheese. Some of the loopholes defy logic like the tax break for companies that give their CEOs lavish performance based bonuses. Others are outrageous like a tax break for companies that shuttle their executives in corporate jets. And some are an insult to working Americans like a special low tax rate for Wall Street hedge fund managers. But one of the most outrageous tax loopholes of all is the one that has helped GE be such a good tax dodger. It enables Wall Street banks and other corporations with large financial units like GE to make it appear profits earned in the United States were generated in offshore tax havens like the Cayman Islands. Its as if you laundered your paycheck through the Caribbean to avoid paying U.S. taxes. Lobbyists are twisting arms on Capitol Hill to try to save the GE Loophole, which expired last year. A recent report by Americans for Tax Fairness and Public Campaign shows that at least 292 lobbyists pressed members of Congress on this issue in the past three years. GE alone pays 48 lobbyists to lobby for the loophole. It cares so much about the loophole its tax department chief once got down on his knees to pretend to beg Congressional staffers to save it. Last week, a U.S. Senate committee voted to renew the GE Loophole and a raft of other questionable tax breaks, including breaks for owners of thoroughbred racehorses and NASCAR racetracks. The Senate will vote on the tax package in May. If it passes, the entire $86 billion cost will be tacked onto the budget deficit. You will end up paying part of the bill. Why should you care about the GE Loophole or about some big corporations paying nothing in federal income taxes? Its because when corporations refuse to pay their fair share, you end up paying higher taxes or getting less for what you pay. You get a worse transportation system, a poorer educational system, less reliable public safety, a weaker national defense, a less secure retirement and a bigger budget deficit. So this April 15, dont be fooled by the lobbyists and spinmeisters who argue that corporations should be paying less in taxes. Many are already paying far less than they should, and some are paying nothing at all. Lets plug up those corporate tax loopholes, like the one that gives huge tax breaks to companies that ship jobs and profits offshore. Its time they pay their fair share just like the rest of us.Clemente is executive director of Americans for Tax Fairness. Spring has sprung! The birds are chirping and flitting around as if they know spring and love are in the air. The flowers are blooming beautifully, and the weather is spring-like, here in Central Florida. Its a mystical, magical and wonderful time of the year for romanticists and Floridians, isnt it?! While Im writing this column my wife is outside planting new trellises into the ground so that her bougainvillea can creep upward along them. She is still coughing now and then, the last remnants of the crud, which is what some of those in the medical field have labeled whatever has affected so many of us in these parts during the past few weeks. All I know is that it has taken Judy and me almost six weeks to shake whatever it is we have. Mine, as usual, turned into bronchitis. Ironically, it has also been the time of year that some of our dear friends have traveled south to visit with us. My friends Jim and RoseMarie, from Connecticut disembarked from the plane, not feeling well; and Judy and I had also started to feel bad. However, we made the most of the week our friends were with us. Judy was in better shape than I was, so she did most of the hosting. I actually stayed in bed two of the days our friends were here. Jim and Rose-Marie no sooner left than my good friend and former teachercolleague Larry Leone came to call upon us one day. Larry was a brave soul; I had reminded him that Judy and I had been under the weather. It was a nice visit, and I was brought up to date with Larry since his retirement as a guidance counselor at good old Regional School District #17, where we both worked for so many years. My friend, Jim, also taught at the same place. I recently wrote a column on my car pooling adventures during the early part of my teaching career. After I had stopped riding with the three shop teachers, Jim, also a shop teacher, and I carpooled for the next 20 years. A few days after Larry departed to head back to the North, one of my oldest friends, Carol, and her husband, Harry, stopped down to have lunch with us. We had picked a busy place to rendezvous but made the most of it and had a real nice visit. Carol and Harry were with another Connecticut couple who had moved south. Yesterday is the first day Ive been outside for more than a few minutes since Ive been sick. It was wonderful! You know how it is after youve been under the weather and you finally get a chance to visit the great out of doors again and just relish in the wonderment of it all. I attended my tai chi class for the first time in a week or so. I loved every minute of it. What made that particular class even more enjoyable was that a woman Ive never met walked up to me and expressed how graceful and how skilled my tai chi movements were. She thought I had been active in the sport for a long time. I thanked her sincerely and shared that I had recently taken a beginner class and had only been to regular tai chi classes a few times. How nice of her. I trust that you are feeling fine and that the weather in Quincy and the rest of Gadsden County has been spring-like for you also. Judy just called me outside for the second day in a row to check over another snake between our house and the house next door. It was a 3or 4-foot-long black snake. I refused to kill it and tried convincing her it was only there to eat some of the bugs and rodents around the property. It was also great to get out on my bicycle yesterday andJACK PAYDEN-TRAVERS Yesterday, I got my taxes off to the IRS and felt like a weight had been lifted from my shoulders. You know the feeling, dont you? Another year and somehow we managed to survive. Other than the car and the house which both belong to the bank for the next few years, the bills have been paid. Well not all the bills. Actually there is one left. Its the $10.40 cents which I refused to pay of the Taxes Owed to the IRS. This year the Taxes Owed came to a whopping $15.00 and so I wrote a check to the United States Treasury for $4.60. As I have every April since 1973 when my wife and I started filing our taxes together, we enclosed a polite note to our Dear IRS Worker informing her or him of our decision to withhold a symbolic portion of our income tax in protest as Christian pacifists to the military madness infecting our federal budget. How else can one explain the fact that the majority of our federal tax dollars are still paying to support present and past wars? Can you believe that the Treasury still needs to send checks each month to two survivors of Civil War veterans? 149 years later and we are still paying for the decision to settle that conflict by force of arms rather than seek nonmilitary solutions to internal and international conflicts. There has got to be a better way to settle disputes. How strange is it to us today to think of settling personal disputes by dueling with the intention of killing our opponent? And yet this is exactly what I hear proposed as soon as an international conflict arises. For some reason honor rather than reason, emotion rather than sanity takes hold and the drums of war start to beat. The kill, kill, kill of bayonet training becomes the fall back option and Dr. Strangelove rides again. Oh you think Ukraine is different from Iraq, Afghanistan, Iran, Uganda, Columbia and the list goes on. During the Vietnam War my wife and I both came to an understanding of our Christian faith as one of nonviolence and thus a rejection of war. I actually chose to refuse induction and face a sentence of five years in prison and a fine of $10,000 rather than join the military. And yet each year in April we are faced with the decision to either pay for war and deny our Christian faith or to participate in war-making by paying our entire tax bill. We choose to affirm our religious beliefs and to resist the payment of our taxes owed by withholding a symbolic amount. And what is more symbolic of the tax dollar than the Form 1040. And so we withhold the symbolic amount of $10.40 from whatever we owe and send it to a group that works for peace. We know, of course, that the IRS may eventually collect this amount along with interest and penalty from our bank or wages or more likely a tax refund. That is a price we are willing to pay for the sake of conscience. We know that we are PeaceVoice: The tax dilemma Letters to the editorOpinionYou Pay Taxes Why Doesnt General Electric?I would like to thank the following businesses, churches and individuals for their sincere support to keep the Social Security services here in Gadsden County.

Easter is fast approaching and Nurse Judy, that smart-aleck alter ego of mine, has been using that to scare my cat, Beebe. If you dont stop leaving your toys all over the house, the Easter Bunny wont come, she tells him. Beebe looks at her curiously but ignores her admonitions. He doesnt know what youre talking about, I tell her. He was too little last year to understand what was going on. This sets her on a path of trying to educate a recalcitrant pupil about Easter. Her talks were never about the true meaning of Easter the religious truths. They were all about the Easter Bunny, chocolate candy, jelly beans, Peeps and baskets. Beebe is a busy kitty, but he did sit and listen to her for a while, his head cocked to one side. I felt he was completely confused. After all, he is no stranger to bunnies. He sits on the loveseat on the screened in porch and watches them hopping around nibbling on the tender plants I try to grow. Still, he had never seen one coloring eggs or delivering baskets, and he found that hard to believe. After being still for about two minutes (an exceedingly long period of time for him), he decided she was talking nonsense. He knew humans sometimes told their children fairy tales and he figured that was what was happening here. He ran off, giving her a little bat on the ankle as he dashed away. You wont be getting anything for Easter, she shouted after him. That got his attention. He ran back, turned his toy box upside down, making sure to bat the contents so they flew all around. Then he curled his tail above his head, gave her a disdainful glance and scampered away. Score one for Beebe, I thought. As Easter drew nearer, I began noticing changes in my happy kittys behavior. If he didnt clean up his plate at mealtime, he would try to cover his dish with anything he could find so Nurse Judy couldnt see it. Not cleaning his plate was one of the sins Nurse Judy was always pointing out to him. I had informed her over and over that this was no longer the way parents handled eating problems. Still, she persisted. He was probably thinking if there really was an Easter Bunny, Nurse Judy would surely tattle on him, so he better cover his tracks or food in this case. He also began playing with only one toy at a time and when he was done, he didnt put it back in the toy box (an onerous task for a little kitty), but he would drop it near the box before getting another. He still jumped on my chest whenever he could, but when there he would purr directlyWWW.GADCOTIMES.COMTHEGADSDENCOUNTYTIMES THURSDAY, APRIL17, 2014 A5 Obituaries Have you loved your library lately? Florida Governor Rick Scott issued a proclamation that recognizes several important benefits libraries provide our state. Heres a few excerpts from the proclamation: Libraries help people of all ages and backgrounds find and interpret information they need to live, learn and work in the 21st century. V Libraries support a competitive workforce by providing online access to employment resources, reference materials for small businesses, and instruction in computer use and basic literacy. Floridians need access to information for their jobs, health education, and other daily living needs and rely increasingly on libraries for access to online services, including services of local, state and federal governments. Libraries provide programs that help very young children develop early literacy skills during the most critical stages of brain development and equip parents and caregivers to be childrens first teachers. Libraries help individuals to make informed decisions about their self-governance by promoting unrestricted access to information and serving as community centers for lifelong learning. The Gadsden County Public Library System is joining libraries in schools, campuses, and towns statewide in observing Library Appreciation Month. We are also celebrating National Library Week this week. In case you havent noticed, libraries today are more than repositories for dusty, old books. They are the very heart of their communities. Libraries are trusted places where everyone can gather to reconnect and reengage with each other to enrich and shape the community, and address local issues.

This week district tournaments play began. Munroe, as the No. 22 seed, was scheduled to play the No. 3 seed, FAMU-DRS, on April 15 at Aucilla.

Photo submitted RFM wins 2 more With one week remaining in the regular season, the Robert F. Munroe Bobcats saw their overall record increase to 18-3 with wins over District 1-2A foe Tallavana and Holmes County. The Tallavana victory also left the Bobcats a perfect 6-0 in district play, with the season-ending tournament looming in Aucilla in two weeks. Were happy to be where we are, said Coach Jayme Williams, but the record doesnt mean anything in the district tournament; one loss could be the difference in finishing second or going home early. We need to be playing our best ball here at the end of the regular season. Munroe appeared to be doing just that against Tallavana, as the home-standing Bobcats defeated the Lions 16-0 Tuesday evening. Stephen Miller and Bradley Klees combined to shut out Tallavana and limited them to two hits while combining to strike out nine.

ROBERT ALLENTimes ReporterVernon Cannon celebrated her 109th birthday on April 10 at the River Chase Care Center. Family, Friends, and local officials attended. Shes always been a very generous person, said Judy Sherman, Cannons great-niece. Cannon was born at home in Gadsden Countys Sawdust community. She grew up there, but moved to Quincy as an adult. She never had biological children of her own but she raised many, including nieces and nephews. Sherman said when Cannon reached 100, she never thought her great aunt would see 105 let alone 109. Every year after 100, Sherman said she would tell everyone that this might be the last year. And every year she has been wrong. Ill stop saying this might be her last year, said Sherman. ROBERT ALLENTimes ReporterGadsden County Commission Chairman Eric Hinson visited East Gadsden High School on April 8 to talk to the students about Gadsden Countys summer job program. The county will select 75 students. Were putting you in a position where you can learn valuable lessons, said Hinson. According to Hinson, the students can work up to 20 hours a week. They earn around $8 an hour almost $1,000 over the summer. Its just a good experience for teenagers, said April Green, an EGHS senior who participated in the program last year by working with teachers during summer school. It helped me with my speech, said Green, explaining she is interested in possibly pursuing a career in broadcast journalism. Green said she will apply again for the program. Applicants must be between ages 14 and 18. They must also have a C average or better. Applications can be submitted at the county commission office. Friday, April 18, is the last day to apply. In a later interview, Hinson said the program will provide real-world experiences or community involvement that improves work readiness while simultaneously cultivating applied skills. The county brought 150 applications to hand out at the meeting. Applications can also be found on the countys website. My grandmother used to say idle hands are the devils workshop, said Shaia Simmons, spokeswoman for Gadsden County Schools. Its much better for you to have something productive to do.

WWW.GADCOTIMES.COM Education Smile and say, Frog! Frog dissection isnt a part of the regular middle-school curriculum, but when students are interested in learning something different, West Gadsden High School makes sure that they get to learn. A group of 15 students stayed after school to dissect frogs. The activity attracted not only middle-school students from Ms. Virginia Ryals classes, but also high school students, adults from the school, and even one student from Greensboro Elementary School. Participating students were asked to write down their observations and answer questions as they dissected the frogs. Some of their responses are below: It doesnt look like the arms can move much, like humans, but it does have joints and bones. They have four fingers and we have five were some of Autumn, Shane, and Peyton Yons observations Malik Presha and Ardarrious Smith described the smell as having an irritating aroma. My tongue is rough and the frogs tongue is smooth. is one of the observations that Kaliah Bright and Craig Durden made. There is lighter, slimy skin on the bottom. It looks different from its back. The skin could help it hide from enemies. was a deduction that QuaJon Graham and Adrian Flores made. Trinidy Quincy, Joel Paz and Matthew Allen wondered, How do they go to the bathroom? Do frogs chew their food? and How long is the average frog tongue? Frog dissection participants pose for a photo. Genesis Batres, Katie Maldonaldo and Erika Aguilar examine their frog carcass. Tawonda Thomas, Malik Presha and Ardarrious Smith inspect a frog carcass. Trinidy Quincey, Joel Paz, Matthew Allen stop and smile for a photo with their frog carcass.

To be more prepared, pack a resealable sandwich bag with aspirins, antacid tablets, bandages, and other first-aid items. Store the items in a tackle box, turkey vest, or hunting pack and theyll always be there, unless you forgot your tackle box, vest or pack, and if you did, you were probably not feeling good before you left. Other convenient items to store in a resealable bag might be a pack of gum, candy, matches or lighter, even toothpicksanything that needs to be packed in a dry container.

Freshman Hannah Wilde led offensively with two hits, two RBIs and stole two bases. Catcher Kay Fletcher also had two hits on the day. Sophomore pitcher Jeri Sloan was the top defensive weapon of the afternoon. Sloan walked only two batters while striking out eleven. MUNROE 15 MACLAY 12 In a game that featured several scoring swings and lead changes, Munroe again held on for the win. Playing without top pitcher, Jeri Sloan, freshman backup pitcher Hannah Wilde stepped in and got the win. Wilde walked seven, most of them early on, before settling down and striking out five. Third-baseman Mary Grace Beall made some difficult plays at the corner to help halt several of Maclays surges. At the plate, Wilde helped her own cause, getting two hits, including a double, and totaling three RBIs. Mary Pat Thomas and Kadejah Glynn each scored three runs. Maddey Pappadakis and Ramsey Higdon had one hit and two runs scored. Higdon also made an important running catch from centerfield to thwart a seventh-inning rally by Maclay. NFC 15 MUNROE 0 Facing the areas top pitcher, Lindsey Bert for NFC, and playing without their own leading pitcher, Jeri Sloan, set the Bobcats up for a quick game and loss at NFC. Bert threw a one-hitter with that lone hit going to Hannah Wilde. Bert also struck out 10 and walked only one. Munroe finished the regular season 10-9. BLOUNTSTOWN 14 EAST GADSDEN 4 The Jaguars led 4-3 in the second inning of a game with Blountstown before giving up 11 runs over the next four innings and losing to the Tigers. East Gadsden gave up 17 hits and struck out none. GIRLSContinued from Page A6 Miller got the win to improve to 2-0 for the season. The Bobcats pounded out 11 hits, led by Myles Edwards, Klees and Kyle Skipper with two each. Edwards also drove in four runs. On Friday, the Bobcats traveled east to Bonifay, where they found an inspired team of Blue Devils awaiting them. They really played well against us, said Williams, which is what you expect from a program that has the tradition that theirs does. Their pitcher gave us trouble early, but we were able to get to him after the first time through the order. We were tested and responded. The Bobcats jumped out to an early 3-0 lead after the first inning, most of it coming on a two-RBI single by Casey Mathers. Holmes County would cut into the lead with a solo homer by catcher Chase Forehand and eventually take a 4-3 lead after scoring three more in the bottom of the fourth. The lead was short-lived, however, as secondbaseman Will Harris drove in Bradley Klees and Mathers with a double to reclaim the advantage in the top of the fifth. From there, the Bobcats would shut out the Blue Devils and escape with the 54 decision. Mathers gained the win in relief, as he replaced starter Myles Edwards in the fourth, striking out five and yielding only one hit. Offensively, Munroe was led by Mathers (two singles, two RBIs), Harris (double, two RBIs), and Klees (double, RBI). Barring inclement weather, the Bobcats were on track to conclude their regular season with games against Wewahitchka at home April 14, at Maclay on April 15 and back at home for the season finale at 6 p.m. Thursday, April 17, against Westwood. The District 1-2A tournament will begin Tuesday, April 22, at Aucilla Christian.

TALLAHASSEE Florida A&M University (FAMU) has named college and pro football hall of famer Kellen Winslow as the universitys new athletic director. FAMU President Elmira Mangum, Ph.D., made the announcement. Winslow will begin work in his new role starting May 15. Kellen Winslow brings a track record of success, positive energy and a wealth of experience to FAMU, said Mangum. Weve had several conversations about taking our athletics program to the next level, and I look forward to working closely with him to develop outstanding student athletes and a championship-caliber environment, added Mangum, who said further strengthening athletics is among her top priorities since recently becoming the 11th president of FAMU. Winslow attended the University of Missouri on a football scholarship in 1975. In 1978, he was named Big Eight Player of the Year for his academic and athletic achievements and earned consensus AllAmerican honors. He was the 13th player selected in the first round of the 1979 NFL draft by the San Diego Chargers. Winslow enjoyed a prolific nine-year career with the Chargers, earning All-Pro honors five times and setting both team and league records that stand to this day. Winslow previously served as the executive director of the Fritz Pollard Alliance, an affinity group comprised of minority members of the National Football League front office, coaching and scouting personnel. Most recently, he was director of planning and new business development at Disneys Wide World of Sports. This is a tremendous opportunity, and I look forward to working with Dr. Mangum, university leadership and the student-athletes themselves to build upon and honor FAMUs great tradition, both on the field and in the classroom, said Winslow. Additionally, Mangum announced the creation of the Presidents Alumni Advisory Board on Athletics (PAABA). This group of hand-selected alumni will serve as a liaison between the president and the athletic director to provide strategic counsel and guidance on various matters pertaining to the general function and development of all FAMU Athletic Department programs. The board will be chaired by Lt. Col. Gregory L. Clark, who also serves as the FAMU National Alumni Associations first vice-president and is a former student athlete from the three-time Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference (MEAC) champion Rattler baseball team. The Presidents Alumni Advisory Committee on Athletics is comprised of former student-athletes and business leaders who will serve as an advisement arm to ensure that FAMUs athletics program receives the attention and resources necessary to nurture an enriching environment for success, said Clark. Mangum said she is confident that this leadership combination will start the process of moving the program to championship-caliber status. We are building a dream team of staff, coaches, students and alumni that will one day become the model of academic and athletic collaboration, said Mangum. Kellen Winslow is said to be the player who defined the tight end position for the rest of professional football to follow. He is a member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame Class of 1995; member of the NFL AllTime Team, celebrating 75 years of NFL history; All-Pro, Consensus Collegiate All-American and member of the College Football Hall of Fame, Class of 2002. Winslow was born Nov. 5, 1957, in East St. Louis, Ill.. He began playing football during his senior year at East St. Louis Senior High School. A firm believer in that academics and athletics go hand-in-hand, Winslow graduated from the University of Missouri receiving a bachelor of educational Science in counseling psychology. He returned to school after his football career and earned his juris doctorate from the University of San Diego School of Law in 1993.

What we have to do is continue to enhance our community relations, said Sapp. We have to work harder at building the trust of the community. This is the reason that neighborhood watches are so vital in combating drugs and violent crime, said Sapp. At some point they have to become empowered to combat crime. According to the April 12 release, an arrest warrant was issued for Rizterrious Lavont Robinson, 25, of 177 Ray Road, Quincy. Later April 12, Robinson turned himself in at the Quincy Police Department. Charges against him include accessory to aggravated battery with a firearm, accessory to aggravated assault with a firearm, accessory to shooting into a dwelling, and accessory to discharging a firearm in a community. According to the April 15 release, an arrest warrant has also been issued for Miller, who remains at large. Charges include shooting into an occupied dwelling, discharging a firearm, possession of a firearm by a felon, aggravated battery with a firearm, armed robbery and aggravated assault with a firearm. Sapp said the police department is working toward identifying the third suspect. We will exert all our energy and turn over every stone to bring these criminals to justice, Sapp stated in the April 15 release. We will not stand for this type of violent crime in Quincy. There were many children at play when this happened and we are just lucky some family isnt planning a funeral. Anyone with information about Miller is asked to call Quincy Police Department at 850-627-7111 and ask for Capt. Troy Gilyard. Informants may also be eligible for a reward if they call Crime Stoppers at 850574-8477. TRIOContinued from Page A1 corrective marketing. He contends the publics perception of the county is worse than the reality. But perceptions are realities unless you change them, said Sachs. Sachs, however, did praise the community for what he called optimism but he warned about this, too. You all wake up in the morning thinking this government is going to do the right thing, he said. It isnt going to happen. Sachs also questioned the Gadsden County communitys consideration of race. Using race to protect the status quo is a crock, Sachs said. In response to a question about that statement, Sachs later explained to the audience that the community should never consider the countys unique minority majority as a disadvantage but as a distinct cultural advantage to be explored. Gene Morgan, county commissioner, said, The county is still benefitting from the aspects of Sachs advice they were willing to follow. Sachs dismissed the county as a client effective Jan. 1, 2012, after he said he found them unwilling or unable to adequately realize and pursue the plan his firm was hired to develop. In a letter dated Dec. 7, 2011, addressed to then-Gadsden County Commission Chairman Sherrie Taylor and the rest of the commissioners, Sachs cites lack of a unified vision and the absence of a positive spirit of cooperation and collegiality among key authorities on the Gadsden County Board of Commissioners as his reason for resigning. Morgan said the countys steps toward branding itself, such as the tag line, Gadsden County: unspoiled and unexpected, are related to the approach Sachs urged the Gadsden County Commission to pursue. All of that is a result of many, many hours of work Rons firm did before he fired us, said Morgan. Sachs is now urging the business community to develop a unified vision and move forward. SACHSContinued from Page A1 have $37,000 budgeted for this, this year but it is a cost to the city. We dont recover our money from this. I look at the number of rides and I look at the cost and its prohibitive; it really is, said Larry Edwards, city commissioner. But then I know some of the individuals that use this service, and its the only mode of transportation theyve got. So its a gut-wrenching decision thats going to have to be reached, one way or the other. No motion was made. No vote was taken. The commission agreed by consensus to allow the city manager to discuss a possible deal. The downtown master plan was also further discussed. Bernard Piawah, building and planning director, presented the latest step in the process: approving a city-revised contract with Atkins Inc. to prepare Quincys Downtown master plan. What are the benefits of this plan? asked Mayor Keith Dowdell. Piawah said the plan would provide direction the city lacks. For proper growth, proper development as we go forward it should be guided by principles, some sense of direction, said Piawah. As of now, we dont have any. According to the building and planning director, the master plan will cost the city $25,000 coupled with a state grant for another $25,000 for a total of $50,000. We will use that as a marketing tool, said Piawah. It will help us recruit businesses to the downtown. Dowdell argued the certification of the citys business park would be a better investment. The certification, previously discussed by the commission, involves paying for initial sight research in order to attract a major industrial facility. My question is to the commissioners, said Dowdell. Do you think we need to spend $50,000 for somebody to come in and tell us what we want downtown to look like? Commissioner Derrick Elias acknowledged a need for the master plan. He also said certifying the business park would be money well spent. He remained, however, disinclined to currently take either step. Im just looking at all of the dollars that we have and given where we are financially and trying to figure out where we are financially, Im just reluctant to really spend any dollars, said Elias. Gay motioned to vote on the issue. It passed, 3-2. Dowdell and Elias voted against it. Severance pay for Jack McLean former city was another topic of conversation. Gay said his vote for any city employees dismissal would never be held hostage by the threat of paying the associated severance package. Elias questioned the accuracy of McLeans time sheets from which his unused sick and leave pay is calculated. He asked Jeff Williams, interim finance director, if McLeans time sheet for sick and leave pay had been subjected to any additional auditing procedures. Williams said he had not subjected the document to additional audits but he would be happy to do so if the commission considered it advisable. Commissioner Larry Edwards motioned to approve the severance package of about $147,000. Gay seconded the motion. Initially, the motion failed, 2-3. Only Edwards and Gay voted in favor of it. Then Elias asked to change his vote. The commission voted unanimously to allow this. Elias then voted in favor of issuing the severance package.

Cannon said she was feeling well. According to family members, Cannon spent most of her adult life working in the home and on the farm. Now she enjoys interacting with her visitors. The Rev. Daniel Hall, an AME pastor, offered an invocation to preface the festive occasion. Ronterious Green then led the group in two upbeat gospel songs selected by the family. A piano player accompanied the crowd. Cannon sang along. Keith Dowdell, Quincys mayor, said he remembered Cannon from his early childhood. Dowdell presented her with a gift: a new purse. Thank God for this occasion, said Dowdell. Because without him, this couldnt happen. Dowdell also pointed out that Cannon was twice as old as some of the grown adults in the room. Entering adulthood in the early 1920s, Dowdell said, She has done some things that we wouldnt imagine doing. Gadsden County Sherriff, Morris Young also attended the celebration.

Few lawmakers gave it much thought until Senator Gaylord Nelson brought it to their attention. At the time, the damage that had been done to the environment was just starting to be discovered. Lake Erie was in bad shape, along with several other areas throughout the country. To make politicians more aware of the need to protect the environment, Senator Nelson asked President John F. Kennedy to go on a conservation tour in 1963. President Kennedy agreed, but the tour did not bring the results that Senator Nelson hoped for so he came up with a new idea in 1969. Senator Nelson invited people throughout the country to participate in a demonstration on April 22, 1970, to raise awareness of the need to protect the environment. The day was called Earth Day and was a huge success! Today, communities across America continue to celebrate Earth Day in many ways. Each of the following is a product that people often recycle.

ride around the neighborhood as a member of the Neighborhood Watch. I love doing my bit to make the streets of America safer for democracy. Heck, I ride around the neighborhood daily; anyhow, I may as well keep my eyes focused on any potential harm or danger to our community. Ironically, when I first joined the club, our commander shared that on his watch there hadnt been a burglary or break-in in over seven or eight years. In the past few months weve had almost seven or eight burglaries or breakins. So much for keeping the streets safe for democracy.... I hope you dont mind my rambling in this column. I just get so overwhelmed feeling good following an extended illness. And when the weather is close to perfect, I get almost giddy. Why its almost like some of those lyrics from that song from South Pacific, Im in Love with a Wonderful Guy: Loudly Ill sing about flowers in spring... Im as corny as Kansas in August, Im as normal as blueberry pie... Im as trite and as gay as a daisy in May... Im as corny as Kansas in August, High as a flag on the Fourth of July... You get the message. God bless you. WWW.GADCOTIMES.COMTHEGADSDENCOUNTYTIMES THURSDAY, APRIL17, 2014 A17 tians laughing. Weve got the joy, joy, joy, joy down in our hearts, or at least we should. When I think of that serious church I had attended, I think about why the people may have seemed so grumpy. Its just my speculation, but I think they took sin too lightly. Well, they were very serious about the worlds sin and the sin of everyone else, but not so much their own. By that I mean they thought they could manage their own sin. They certainly had enough rules. Back then, I thought I could manage my sin, too, until I realized I couldnt. Years ago, I told a group of Lutheran women at their Experience the Joy! retreat: Real joy is knowing the depth of your sin and the extent of your idolatry. Because unless you know that even your smallest sin caused the death of Christ, youll never be able to fully appreciate the greatness of Gods grace, demonstrated in the Cross and then the Resurrection. We cant do anything about our sin and thats great news. Theres a hymn that goes, My sin, oh, the bliss of this glorious thought! My sin, not in part but the whole, is nailed to the cross and I bear it no more. Praise the Lord, praise the Lord, O my soul! Do you hear the laughter in that? Its found in knowing youre forgiven everything, past, present and future. That should make you laugh. The message of Good Friday is that Jesus suffered and died for our sin. His death was real and necessary, a death that we deserved to die. For that, we grieve. For that, we are grateful. But the message of Easter is that Jesus didnt stay dead. He simply threw off the grave clothes, got up and walked out of the tomb, alive and well. Like the monk had said, Christs Resurrection was the great joke of God. Its as we sing: No more let sin and sorrow grow, nor thorns infest the ground; He comes to make His blessings flow far as the curse is found. Joy to the world, friends. Its time to laugh.Nancy Kennedy is the author of Move Over, Victoria I Know the Real Secret, Girl on a Swing, and her latest book, Lipstick Grace.

In fact $10.40 For Peace is a group that encourages conscientious reflection about the payment of taxes that support war. They host a website to assist people wrestling with this question: www.1040forpeace.com. One option I hope everyone will consider is to support the right of conscientious objection to the payment of war taxes through passage of the Religious Freedom Peace Tax Fund Act of the 113th United States Congress. HR 2483 is a bill that would extend the right of conscientious objection to U.S. taxpayers. Introduced each session by civil rights Congressman John Lewis, this bill would create a Peace Tax Fund in the U.S. Treasury into which those opposed to war would pay 100 percent of their taxes. It could not be used to fund the Pentagon, nuclear weapons produced by the Department of Energy, military aid to foreign nations, national security, etc. You can join the National Campaign for a Peace Tax Fund, which lobbies for passage of this bill, by going to www.peacetaxfund.org.

Is this his way of trying to tell me he is a good kitty? I wondered. I began to worry about Beebes mental health. I certainly didnt want him stressed. Dont you worry, Beebe, I said. You will be getting something for Easter, I promise. It wont be colored eggs or Peeps or chocolate but you will get something. Pay no attention to evil Nurse Judy. He did seem to relax a little after this talk, but he remained extra needy and wanted to sit on my lap all the time. I did have to work, and I needed to shop and find a little bunny filled with catnip for him, but I hated to leave him alone if he was still worrying. What should I do? Then one day I found him cuddled on the lap of an Easter Bunny doll I had. He was purring in her ear and seemed very contented. I was free and could go about my business. Problem solved. Oops, I spoke too soon. Now we have a new problem. The doll is too big for him to carry around, and he doesnt want to be parted from it. He tries to drag it, then comes crying to me for help. I think we may celebrate Easter a little early this year. Beebe will get his catnip toy, a little ham, and Bunny doll will go back in the cupboard. Happy Easter.

Wilde, Hannah Michaela GRADESContinued from Page A9 000HYRF that fits better, may then be matched with the actor. Part of being authentic, according to Taylor, are smart musical selections selections the singer can connect with personally and then convincingly communicate this intimate understanding to the audience. Taylor also warned against selecting a piece just because its popular. Give something different, he said. The more flexible you are and the more prepared you are, the better off you will be. Taylor also discussed rsums and headshots. If your headshot doesnt stand out, you never get the opportunity to show them what you got, said Taylor. Strickland said the local attendees were very excited for the class. They would like to work, she said. They would like to be paid for their efforts. A lot of them dream of taking that next step. QMT has one more show this season, Guys and Dolls. It opens April 25 and runs for two consecutive weekends. According to Strickland, master classes like Taylors will be held every month as part of QMTs next season. QMTContinued from Page A1 One of the first musicals to incorporate street slang with Broadway show tunes, Guys and Dolls pits the New York City underworld against the Salvation Army and guess who wins the bet? Hey, it was written in the 1950s who do you think? The musical comedy opens at the Quincy Music Theatre on April 25 with a nonstop pantomime of street life in New York and the action doesnt stop until the final curtain. Guys and Dolls takes us from the heart of Times Square to the cafes of Havana, Cuba, and even into the sewers of New York City, but eventually everyone ends up right where they belong. I was most attracted to this show because of the score its simply filled with great, jazzy songs by Frank Loesser: Luck Be a Lady, Sit Down, Youre Rockin the Boat, Adelaides Lament, and A Bushel and a Peck, said Director Naomi Rose-Mock. I think everyone will relate to the characters and walk out singing and dancing to this terrific score! The orginal 1951 production won five Tonys and it has been revived and revered ever since. The QMT production runs for two full weekends. Dont miss this fabulous, fast and funny musical! The show takes the stage April 25 to 27, and May 2 to 4 at QMT. Evening performances start at 7:30, and Sunday matinees and a second-Saturday matinee on May 3 are at 2:30 p.m. Tickets are $18 for adults and $15 for students/seniors/military. For tickets, please visit www.qmt.org or call 850-875-9444 between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. The Quincy Music Theatre is in the Leaf Theatre building in downtown Quincy. Its a long way from Chipola College to Carnegie Hall. But former Chipola music student James Matthews is making the trip. Matthews, a piano major at the University of West Florida, recently placed in a piano competition that will allow him to perform at Carnegie Hall. After earning his Associate in Arts degree at Chipola College, he transferred to the University of West Florida. At the advice of a UWF professor, Heidi Salanki, Matthews submitted a video of himself performing Sergei Prokofievs Piano Sonata No. 7 for the 2014 American Protg International Piano and Strings Competition. Matthews received honorable mention which came with the prize of performing in the Weill Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall on April 20. ABOVE: L.
