ROBERT ALLENTimes ReporterA visiting man was robbed at knifepoint for three one-dollar bills around 2:30 p.m. April 8 inside the Havana Heights Apartments. According to the Gadsden County Sheriffs Office report, the man said he was visiting a friend in the complex. Robbery suspects Miles Johnson and Freeman Jackson allegedly stopped him outside as he was trying to leave. According to the report, Johnson and Jackson aggressively approached him and began shouting profane and threatening statements. The man, according to the report, asked not to be hurt but the profane threats continued. The man said Johnson produced a roughly 4-inch knife and pointed it toward his abdomen. The other suspect, Jackson, was drinking from a beer bottle. He poured the remaining contents on the ground and then brandished the bottle as a weapon. At this point, according to the report, the man said he was afraid so he emptied his pockets, throwing his $3 on the ground. The man said Johnson reached down and collected the money. Then he ordered the man to get moving, while verbally taking some exception to his Georgia license plate. According to the Miles Johnson ROBERT ALLENTimes ReporterGadsden County Commissioners met April 15 for their regular meeting. Future improvements of five county roads were a topic of discussion. Funding for the project will be provided through the Small County Outreach Program, the County Incentive Grant Program, and the Small County Road Assistance Program all initiatives instituted by the Florida Department of Transportation. Its been a lifesaver for this county, said Robert Presnell, county administrator, in a Times interview. Were talking millions of dollars. Presnell said these programs have accounted for the restoration of about 30 roads in Gadsden County. From a list of 15 roads compiled by the county administration, the commissioners must determine which roads are in most dire need of repair. According to Florida Statute 339.2816, the official provision behind the Small County Road Assistance Program, the grant is contingent THURSDAY, APRIL24. 2014 WWW.GADCOTIMES.COM VOLUME113/ISSUE17 50 16 PAGES, 1 SECTIONFAMU boxer in Sports Illustrated/A8 ROBERT ALLENTimes ReporterIsaac Sutton of Gretna became the first Tallavana Christian School student to be awarded an athletic college scholarship. On April 17, Sutton signed to play basketball at the University of Maryland, Eastern Shore. Suttons new team, the Hawks, an NCAA Division I program, competes in the Mid-Eastern athletic conference. The conference includes Florida universities, such as Bethune-Cookman and Florida A & M. This is just the beginning, said Sutton. Its not just all about me. Its about the kids. According to Issac Livingston, Tallavana Christians basketball coach, Sutton distinguished himself through his work ethic. Livingston said Sutton always put in extra effort, staying after school to work on his game. He works that hard in school on his academics as well, said Livingston. He did everything he was supposed to do. The entire school was present to witness the signing and applaud Suttons accomplishment. Sutton, visibly moved by the event, thanked God, his coach, his teachers and his parents. Jeffery Reed, Tallavana Christians athletic director, said the scholarship may have broader implications for the schools developing programs. He said the scholarship gives students something to strive for. The athletic director said the school is working toward building a new program.

Chauncey Reed Hawkins, 18, of 1444 Jakes Drive, Tallahassee, is being held at the Leon County Jail. He is charged with robbery with a firearm, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, 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. Rizterrious Lavont Robinson, one of the first two suspects arrested, turned himself in April 12 to Quincy Police Department. He has since been cleared and released. According to the April 18 report, a witness recanted testimony concerning Robinsons alleged involvement. Chazdin Jamarick Miller, 19, is still being held. His bond is set at $350,000. According to the same QPD report, the case is still open. QPD investigators continue to seek, locate and interview additional witnesses. The department anticipates more arrests will be made in association with this shooting. Anyone with information about the shooting should call Quincy Police Department at 850-6277111 and ask for Capt. Troy Gilyard. Informants may also be eligible for a reward if they call Crime Stoppers at 850-574-8477. Freeman Jackson After making a grand entrance April 17 into the Tallavana Christian School gym, Isaac Sutton of Gretna signs his basketball scholarship while surrounded by his family, friends and mentors. He is the first Tallavana Christian student to sign any athletic scholarship. Next season he will be a Hawk, playing for the University of Maryland, Eastern Shore.

Pam Anderson and Steve Cutshaw, both employed at Torreya State Park, found the lone specimen when conducting a plant census at Rocky Comfort Farms in Quincy. Its a very rare find for our area, said Cutshaw, the park manager. Morels have a very short window of time to grow, so theyre very hard to find. Debby Parramore, Rocky Comfort Farms director, invited the rangers to conduct their plant census when she decided to open a new trail through a part of her property where she wants to preserve the native condition. In the northern climates, they grow a little more abundantly but still in limited numbers, said Cutshaw. According to Anderson, Northern Floridas ecological conditions are highly suitable for the morels growth, making the mushrooms official debut in Florida remarkable on account of its inexplicable absence of documentation before now. Weve always thought they were here, said Anderson. The habitat is perOld Federal Road, pictured here at its western terminus, handles heavy loads, despite being a two-lane rural route.

There will be various ministers from throughout the county praying for issues such as: families; the military; and federal, state and local governments. The public is invited. Since the first call to prayer in 1775, when the Continental Congress asked the colonies to pray for wisdom in forming a nation, the call to prayer was continued through U.S. history, including President Lincolns proclamation of a day of humiliation, fasting, and prayer in 1863. Each year, the president signs a proclamation, encouraging all Americans to pray on this day. Last year, all 50 state governors plus the governors of several U.S. territories signed similar proclamations. List of candidatesGretnaCity Commissioner, Seat 1:Essie Bethea-Gipson Clarence M.

Jackson was charged with two counts of robbery. Johnson was charged with larceny, aggravated assault with a weapon and failure to appear. Havana Police department arrested Jackson.

KNIFEContinued from Page A1 ROBERT ALLENTimes ReporterFinleys Brigade Camp 1614 of the Sons of Confederate Veterans had their seventh annual Confederate Decoration Day on April 19 at the Soldiers Cemetery in Quincy. This years guest speakers were Susan Hathaway of the Virginia Flaggers an organization dedicated to the public preservation of all Confederate States of America banners (commonly known as the rebel flag) and Jim Davis of St. Augustine, commander of the Florida Division of the SCV. The beginning of the ceremony included prayer, the Pledge of Allegiance, and a salute to the Confederate flag Our heritage is under attack, said Hathaway. As sons and daughters of the South, we have inherited a birthright that is the envy of all who know about the confederate soldiers courage. Camp 1614, comprised of members from Havana, honors the soldiers buried in Quincy and actively pursues their identities a puzzle perpetuated by lost or incomplete records. In the future, Finleys Brigade would like to construct a monument bearing the names of these nowanonymous men. The rows of simple headstones marking the graves of the soldiers were each marked with a small Confederate flag, and later, before the end of the ceremony, a wreath was laid against each stone marker. The ceremony, however, was not only about the individual men nor was it only about the past. I submit to you that we are not only here to remember these gallant Southern soldiers but also the Southern culture that spawned them and their beliefs, said Davis. For you see, my friends, the cost of war is always paid, and it is always to the last full measure, said Davis. But never forget, not only by the brave soldiers is that cost paid. Our Southern culture has also paid the cost of that war. The Decoration Day concluded with a spirited rendition of Dixie followed by refreshments and an art raffle. ROBERT ALLENTimes ReporterIts not your imagination. It really has been raining more than usual for this time of year. A close look at the average inches of precipitation recorded by the National Weather Service over the course of three Marches reveals this spring began wetter than usual in Gadsden County. I have not seen this much flooding since Ive been a commissioner, said Brenda Holt, county commissioner. Even within the county borders, rainfall varies. For example, the NWS map illustrates monthly averages in Havana may be different than monthly averages in Greensboro. General trends within the county, however, are still discernable and they seem to be increasing in s everity. Holt said residents with flooded yards tell her, It wasnt doing this when I first got my property. This March, the map shows the county received 6 to 15 inches, with a large section of the county marked in the 8to 10-inch range and the southern point juts into an area with a solid patch of 10to 15-inch average precipitation for the month. This past March, the map shows the county received 4 to 10 inches of rainfall, again depending on which specific section. About half the county remained in the 4to 6-inch range including the southern point, which averaged the most rainfall this March. March 2009, five years ago, the map shows the county received only 6 to 8 inches, almost uniformly with the exception of one spur, pointing northeast from the countys western border, which received 8 to 10 inches. Accordingly, drainage issues have become points of consideration in both Gretna and Midway. The issue was a matter of discussion at Midways most recent city council meeting April 3. And more recently in Gretna, days after a rainfall, standing water still lines several residential streets, unable to flow anywhere or percolate quickly into the supersaturated ground. Similarly, according to an April 16 press release from the Northwest Florida Water Management District, significant flooding on Econfina Creek led the agency to close Pitt, Sylvan and Williford springs recreation areas in an effort to preserve public safety. Waters going to find the lowest point, said Holt. It doesnt have a conscience. Rainfall data for April, of course, are still being collected. Meanwhile, comparing any one given day from year to year is an inconclusive exercise. But if Aprils numbers, follow suit with March as recent weather seems to suggest Gadsden could continue on track for a particularly soggy spring. Kelly Crocker of Tallahassee, commander of Finleys Brigade, Camp 1614, stands in uniform as the ceremony proceeds.

One nurses tale: It was a busy morning at the clinic, about 8, when an elderly gentleman in his 80s arrived to have stitches removed from his thumb. He said he was in a hurry as he had an appointment at 9. I took his vital signs and had him take a seat, knowing it would be quite some time before someone would to able to see him. I saw him looking at his watch and decided, since I was not busy with another patient, I would evaluate his wound. On exam, his cut was well healed, so I talked to one of the doctors, got the needed supplies to remove his sutures and re-dress his wound. While finalizing the task, I asked him if he had another doctors appointment this morning, as he was in such a hurry. The gentleman told me no, that he needed to go to the nursing home to eat breakfast with his wife. As we talked, I asked if she would be upset if he was a bit late. He replied that she no longer knew who he was, and that she has not recognized him for more than three years now. I was surprised and asked him, And you still go every morning to be with her for breakfast even though she doesnt know who you are? He smiled and patted my hand ... and, looking deeply into my eyes, said While she doesnt know me, I still know who she is. Some 55 years ago we both pledged our love would last for better or worse. She doesnt remember that special wedding day, but I guess its up to me to remember for the both of us. I held back my tears until he walked away in his slow but determined gait, but as soon as he turned the corner, I cried with joy. That, I thought, is the kind of love we all want in our lives. n n n As an advocate, I understand that lifes circumstances change, and as time goes by, things that were once true are in need of reconsideration. That happens in some marriages, and even in family relationships with our parents, children and grand children. I am not one to judge why some people need to change their minds about love and family connections, but I do hope that before we make those decisions, we think deeply about whats next for ourselves and others. Keeping our promises is serious business, and making commitments to the ones we love deserves every measure of heartfelt dedication to doing what is right. One voice of influence 10 tips for success I frequently have the opportunity to address youth and young adults who are involved in some community organization or civic group. Recently, some 175 members of the City Year/Americorps programs from Orlando, Jacksonville and Miami came to the State Capitol in Tallahassee to learn about the workings of government, and what role they can play in building an advocacy presence for reforming education and improving the well-being of children. I know City Year well because our son, Josh, served for a year in the Washington, D.C. program a year in which he developed excellent leadership skills and made a difference with the youth he and his colleagues mentored. www.cityyear.org/. After treating the red-jacketed City Year visitors to a number of inspiring speakers, we had some time for conversation. One young man raised his hand and asked, How can someone as young as 20 make a difference in as complicated a field as politics and public policy. One of our speakers, Shevrin Jones, who happens to be the youngest Florida State legislator at age 26, replied that leadership is not age-limited. What is important is having the confidence that your cause is just and your commitment is genuine. When I walked my district asking for votes I was often told You look too young to represent me. My answer was: I am not too young to listen to you, to learn about problems that need to be fixed, and to have a voice that reflects my values for a better community. You are not too young to vote, to have your say and if you are brave enough, to run for office. The young faces in the audience were easy to read If this guy can do it...so can I. While many people in our nation are turned off by the big money and flood of negativity in politics, I believe deeply the power of the voter, properly motivated and engaged, is our nations greatest strength and hope for the future. When I hear that fewer than half of eligible young adults are registered to vote, and only a fraction of registered voters participate in every election, it makes me both sad and angry. So many people fought and even died for our right to vote and in their honor, we owe it to our nation to take every opportunity to encourage our new generation of teens and young adults to make a difference, one voice and one vote at a time. As we work to achieve our advocacy goals, I suggest keeping these 10 tips in mind: After each encounter with someone new, reflect on what you learned. What you say about someone reflects more on you than on them. Think first and speak later. Decide where you want to be and visit there often. Wherever you go, show up in full sprit, with open eyes, eager to learn something new. Resolve to be the most positive, kind and considerate person in the room. Ask at least three questions of others before you share about yourself. Give every person you meet a reason and a way to keep in touch. Remember names, but if you forget a name, politely ask to be reminded. Admit the errors you commit and forgive the errors of others. Jack Levine is founder of 4Generations Institute.

Ill never forget the excited, happy look on my 5-year-old son Kents face when he finally reeled his 16inch trout close enough to the boat for his first glance. I wonder if he remembers it as well. I couldnt wait to take my wife, Millie, and son, Kent, to a place to fish I had always loved in Connecticut after we had left our former home in Hawaii. Compensating Reservoir in New Hartford, Conn., was such a beautiful and pristine lake to fish and swim in. It had been also a relatively unknown place by most of the states residents so it was never crowded in the late s. As much as I loved that lake, I had never caught a fish in it. On a beautiful summer day we drove to that lake to do some fishing. It was to be my sons first time at trying his hand at the sport I loved so much before I entered the service. The lake was as beautiful and inviting as it had been all the times I visited it during my teen age years. We rented a rowboat from the boathouse. It was rather late in the afternoon to start fishing, and the attendant told us we would only have an hour or so to fish before we would have to return it. I rowed the boat out to a spot that looked like a good place to fish and rested the oars along the boats port and starboard gunwales. All three of us were fishing. Millie and Kent were using worms, and I was using some of my favorite spinning lures. It wasnt long before the sun was about to set when I said we had better reel in our bait and row back to the boathouse. In the next moment Kent yelled out excitedly, I think Ive got one, Dad! I instructed him to give his pole a slight yank and then reel in his line slowly. My heart was pounding almost as hard as my sons surely was. The tip of Kents pole was bent into an almost perfect J and bouncing all the while he reeled in what seemed to be a real whopper. After quite a tussle for a young lad, Kent reeled the fish in close enough to the boat that I could scoop it out of the water with my net. What a beauty! He had landed a big brook trout. As we were admiring Kents first fish, an announcement from the boathouse bellowed: Please return all boats to the boathouse immediately. You have 15 minutes. I thought to myself, Why that would give me just enough time to gut and clean Kents fish right here in the boat and then I wouldnt have to do it at home. I took out my fishing knife and gutted and cleaned the prized trout as I had done with other fish so many times as a teen. I think my son would have preferred that I had left his trout in its original form so he could have admired it for a few more minutes. At any rate, I finished cleaning the fish. I congratulated Kent on being the only one of us to have caught a fish and to have landed such a beauty the first time out. I also told him I had never caught a fish in this lake. Now let me just rinse the fish off before I put him into the bucket, I said. I reached over the edge to swish the fish in the water. Wouldnt you know, I dropped it! I tried frantically to grab it before the fish sank too low into the water to retrieve it. No luck. The disappointed look on Kents face was as memorable as the one of glee he had worn when he first latched onto the trout. I didnt think my wife or my son would ever talk to me again. She just gave me a frown and said, How could you have gone and done something as stupid as that? I have never forgotten that day on Compensating Reservoir, the one I had no doubt ruined for my son. I wonder how many of you have had that kind of day fishing. I know, surely, youve had days when you returned from an outing with no fish. By the way, thank you readers for sharing memorable fishing tales after reading my column on fishing a short while ago. I couldnt resist writing another after hearing yours. God bless you. JENN VERVIER American Forum Our company depends on clean water for our success. Thats why were pleased that the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) issued new draft rules for enforcement of the Clean Water Act last month. Since the Supreme Court handed down decisions in 2001 and 2006, enforcement of the Clean Water Acts provisions has become incredibly complex, leaving businesses and consumers without clarity. This action by the EPA will give us the confidence we need to know that our access to clean water will be protected. So many businesses rely on clean water: industries from manufacturing to agriculture to tourism can only survive if bodies of water are protected. In our case, clean water is essential to great-tasting beer. Losing access to clean water as a resource can make the difference between a company thriving and failing. What the EPA is doing will save jobs. We believe that clarity in regulation and the protection of natural resources are keys to economic development. Our own journey in crafting world class beers over the past 23 years and growth to over 525 co-workers attest to the fact that when smart regulation exists for all and when clean water is available for all business thrives. For centuries, brewers have depended on clean, plentiful water supplies to craft great beers. Our water supplies depend on responsible regulations that limit pollution and protect drinking water at its source by keeping small streams and wetlands healthy. Simply put: craft brewers like New Belgium depend on a clean and abundant water supply. Brewers as also rely on clean water nationwide to Clean water key to business success OpinionA love that lasts Along Twin Ponds Road...Ray Willis The Gadsden County Times15 S.

The annual Voter-Registration Drive for WGHS students was held by the Gadsden County Supervisor of Elections Office. This year, Mrs. Bridgette Bradwell and Mrs. Kenya Williams explained the role of voter registration and enabled students 18 years of age (and those nearing 18) to register/preregister. This allows students to be able to vote in the upcoming elections, as prescribed by law. In addition to the registration, 50 students were able to participate in a mock election to understand the ballot and voting format used in Gadsden County. This is part of the Supervisor of Elections (Mrs. Shirley Green Knight) Educational Outreach Program and has been successfully implemented in the schools for a number of years now. The voting-registration drive was spearheaded by Mr. Steve Scott, member of WGHS Social Studies Department. tribution will begin at 9 a.m. Food distribution is every fourth Saturday unless otherwise stated.

We are pleased that we were able to direct this award to Stewart Street Elementary School, said Doris Terry Williams, Ed.D., executive director of the Rural Trust. The school has demonstrated its capacity to make inspired and wise use of limited resources. The funds from this grant will enable the school to continue its good work and serve students with programs that would not otherwise be available. Stewart Street Elementary will use the grant to restructure the media center and transform traditional classrooms into multimodal classrooms. Receiving an award of such prestigious honor sends a message to our community and surrounding counties that our students are academically capable of exceeding expectations and accomplishing even higher educational goals, Stewart Street principal Lisa Robinson said. Because of this award, we will be able to present and interpret vast amounts of information in every classroom, Robinson said. Teachers use of media instruction in subjects such as science and math will allow students to expand their understanding of complex concepts.

Presnell said the research behind the list of 15 possible projects three from each district helps preclude the chance of disqualifications via the states standards. The statute reads, in part, The following criteria must be used to prioritize road projects for funding under the program: The primary criterion is the physical condition of the road as measured by the department. As secondary criteria the department may consider: whether a road is used as an evacuation route, whether a road has high levels of agricultural travel, whether a road is considered a major arterial route, whether a road is considered a feeder road. This particular grant can pay for two of the road projects one of which can cost around $1 million, and one of which must cost less than $100,000. The other two programs are accompanied by their own particular sets of provisional language. Justin Ford from Preble-Rish, an engineering and surveying firm regularly contracted by the county, attended the meeting. He offered commissioners his professional opinion regarding road selections. He said Old Federal Road, TolarWhite Road and Charlie Harris Loop need repair. He also said Bell Road and McNair Road are in questionable condition. After discussion, the commissioners decided to each select one road, rather than generate a group list. Presnell said from a list of five, the state would probably approve three of the projects and complete them sometime in 2016 or 2017. Commissioner Sherrie Taylor chose Old Federal Road. Commissioner Brenda Holt chose Hardaway Highway. Commissioner Doug Croley chose Porter Mitchell Road. Commissioner Gene Morgan said he would like more time to consider his selection. Commissioner Holt motioned to approve the five roads, whichever may be selected for proposal via the commissioners agreed upon one-forone system. Croley seconded. The motion passed unanimously.

TALLAHASSEE Florida A&M University (FAMU) is the home of the 2014 U.S. Intercollegiate Boxing Associations heavyweight champion. FAMU student Willie Ferrell not only took home the championship belt earlier this month, but also defended his title as the 2013 heavyweight champion. Ferrells journey to triumph in the boxing ring is depicted in the April 14 issue of Sports Illustrated, which is available now on newsstands and online. The feature also chronicles Ferrells extraordinary relationship with his late brother Jonathan, a former Rattler football player, whose controversial 2013 death has been attributed to alleged racial profiling. Ferrells inspiring story of how his brother, even in death, encouraged him to defend his title is also told in an upcoming issue of FAMUs A&M magazine. I was proud to represent my brother. I was proud that I was able to show the world what FAMU has to offer, said Ferrell about what it felt like to be handed the championship belt once again. RICHARD BURNSQuincy Fighting Tigers ManagerQuincy Fighting Tigers Boxing Gym was in action again in Pensacola, taking four fighters to the Gulf Coast Fight Fest 15, hoping to take home four gold medals in the competition consisting of boxing, grappling, ultimate fighting and wrestling.

Bobcats fall twice, win their regular season finale For the first time this season, the Munroe Bobcats suffered a two-game losing streak, dropping one-run games to Wewahitchka on Tuesday, April 15, and Maclay on Wednesday, April 16. The streak lasted until the next night when Munroe defeated Westwood in their final regular season game. We lost a couple of hard-fought games, said Bobcat Coach Jayme Williams. We had our chances in each one. Were not happy we lost, but we competed. Hats off to Wewahitchka and Maclay for their play. The Bobcats began the week at home against the visiting Gators and the game quickly turned into a pitchers duel. Nolan Haire went the distance for Munroe, striking out four and yielding seven hits and three runs. The Bobcats outhit Wewa, collecting nine on the night, but three errors proved to be the difference in the game that ended 3-2 in Wewas favor. We made a couple of mistakes, and they took advantage, said Williams. Thats what good teams do. Nolan pitched a good game. He settled down after struggling early. Offensively, the Munroe was led by Haire with three hits and Stephen Miller and Will Harris with two each. The next night, the Bobcats traveled to Tallahassee to face Maclay and found themselves leading 31 midway through the fourth, due in large part to a Myles Edwards home run. Munroe would extend the lead to 4-2 after batting in the fifth. SUSIE MORRISTimes Sports CorrespondentWith all other county teams ousted from their district softball tournaments, Munroe was thrust into the district championship game against Aucilla thanks to a last-minute forfeit by FAMU-DRS an hour before first pitch. FAMU forfeited out of the bracket while Munroe was warming up April 16 at Aucillas field, sending the Bobcats into the district finals April 17 against No. 1seeded Aucilla. The Munroe team faced Aucilla for the third time this season with both previous contests going only five innings and victim of the mercy rule. But if you know 2ADistrict 1 softball, you know to never count out Munroe (11-10) in the playoffs, and the Bobcats gave all appearances this season would be no different. In contrast to previous games this season, Munroe held the Warriors scoreless for five at bats, thanks to terrific pitching by sophomore Jeri Sloan and fine defensive plays by the seniorless Bobcat team. But Aucilla struck for five runs in the fifth inning, courtesy of two straight bunts and two timely hits to the gaps in the outfield. Munroe was unable to push any runs across and was held scoreless, losing the title game 5-0. Both teams had three hits each. Munroe got all three of their hits from one batter Mary Pat Thomas. The loss puts the Cats on the road this week. They were scheduled to travel to Jacksonville on Wednesday, April 23, to face the 2A District 2 winner First Coast Christian of Jacksonville. The winner will face the winner of the Aucilla vs. Cedar Creek Christian on Tuesday, April 29.

be available for barley, hop and other agricultural products. Whether drawn from lakes, rivers, groundwater or a local water system, brewers rely on the protections of the Clean Water Act to ensure the quality of our main ingredient. Beer, after all, is 90 percent water. Fouling of our water supply whether we draw directly from a water source or from a municipal supply threatens our ability to produce our great-tasting beer and our bottom line. However, loopholes in the current Clean Water Act have made it possible to dump waste into many small streams and tributaries without fear of prosecution. In many cases, the loophole has rendered the EPA (and its sister agency on clean water issues, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers) unable to protect communities. Lawsuits and weak policies left over from the 1980s have left many streams without adequate protection Under the new safeguards proposed by the Obama administration, hundreds of communities will now enjoy the full protections of our nations clean water laws. Bringing these streams and wetlands under the umbrella of the Clean Water Act will also help protect drinking water for 117 million people. It will safeguard natural flood protection, since wetlands and streams help catch and soak up rain. This is no small benefit; 9.6 million homes and $360 billion worth of properties lie in flood-prone areas. Similarly, brewers rely on clean water to sustain their businesses and are cheering the new protections, as are hunters, anglers and wildlife-lovers The EPA has done a terrific job of coming up with these new rules. They dont give the agency any additional power that isnt already granted to them by the 1972 Clean Water Act. Theyre based on a thorough review of more than 1,000 pieces of scientific literature. And theyll give the business community a much-needed dose of certainty going forward. Business organizations, such as the American Sustainable Business Council, of which our company is a member, have endorsed the rules. While the rules wont be finalized until after a 90day comment period to be determined soon theres a lot here for businesses to like, and very little not to like. Protecting our waterways is good for business, specifically businesses that rely on clean water to make great beer. There is no substitute for clean and abundant water for our business, for communities and for individuals. These proposed rules will offer the clarity and certainty that we need to continue to grow.

I wonder if my faith will ever grow deeper or stronger, if Ill ever have more passion for God, more desire for holiness. Sometimes I think I must surely be the sorriest excuse for a Christian in the history of Christendom. Sometimes people ask me when my next book is coming out, and I tell them probably never. I explain the publishing market has changed dramatically, which is true, and people dont buy books the way they used to also true. I tell them maybe God has me in Time Out, which may also be true. That happened once before when I was full of arrogance and pride and God let me embarrass myself publicly. I dont know if I got any better while I was in Time Out, but ever since Ive been scared to be arrogant I still am, but now Im scared when I am, which might be progress. I dont know. But the real reason I am not writing any more books is that Im waiting to get better, for my faith to grow deeper, for me to have more passion for God, for my lukewarmness to heat up. Ive been waiting for a while now. Times like this, when I wonder if Ill ever get better and be usable for God, I remember a pastor I met years ago. When she was younger, she joined with a traveling evangelist and went all over the country preaching seven days a week. Eventually, she burned out and also became disillusioned by some things she witnessed, phoniness behind the pulpit, she said, and left the ministry for a while. During her time out, she got caught up in a cocaine whirlwind, using and selling. Heres the best part of her story: The whole time she was getting high, she was also sharing the gospel and praying with her druggie friends who would come to her with their spiritual questions. She never stopped her ministry; it just took a different route. St. James AME hosts special prayer serviceSt. James AME Church will open its doors at 7 p.m. May 1 to the community for the 63rd annual observance of the National Day of Prayer. One Voice, United in Prayer, is the theme of this years event.

Sometimes it still feels like yesterday Daddy, I miss you so much! When we held your funeral services, I so wanted to stand and speak. Someone gave remarks and said that you were a Jack of all Trades. He went on to talk about how you were a brick mason, a truck driver, played football in school etc. I heard all things thinks and so wanted to speak to the man you were and will always be to me. Besides who could better speak about a man than his daughter who loved and admired him so much? But, I was paralyzed and could not speak. Its been ten years! Sometimes it still feels like yesterday Today, though, I can speak. I can speak about the measure of a man who even though physically gone; his presence is still strongly felt. What is the measure of a man? To me, the measure of a man is evidenced by the lives he touched. I reminisce about how you taught me to be strong and independent. I remember how you had to be a parent figure for nieces and nephews who had no active parent in their lives; even a parent figure for your sisters and brothers when your own Mother needed a hand with discipline. I remember how you had to get up and out early on the first day of each New Year to visit Grandmas house. As the old wifes tale went, it was good luck if the first visitor at your home on January 1st was a good man. You were designated to make that first visit because you were a good man. You did whatever it took to provide for and defend your family. You left us with a sense pride in knowing that we were valued and loved. You gave fond memories to sustain us during the times when missing you simply gets so, so hard. This is the measure of a man, a good man! Its been ten years. Sometimes it still feels like yesterday; but, today I can breathe a little better. Daddy, you are missed and loved! Lisa, Sue, Meeka and Jay

Contact B2R: 1-855-940-0227 www.B2R Finance.com From www.fuel economy.gov: Drive sensibly Aggressive driving (speeding, rapid acceleration and braking) wastes gas. It can lower your gas mileage by 33 percent at highway speeds and by 5 percent around town. Sensible driving is also safer for you and others, so you may save more than gas money. Observe the speed limit While each vehicle reaches its top fuel economy at a different speed (or range of speeds), gas mileage decreases at speeds above 60 mph. Each 5 mph you drive over 60 mph is like paying an additional $0.30 per gallon for gas. Gas-saving tips

WWW.GADCOTIMES.COMTHEGADSDENCOUNTYTIMES THURSDAY, APRIL24. 2014 A15 One day during a five-day high, she was pulled over by the police. She said thats when she came face to face with the mercy of God. Even though she had cocaine all over the seat of her car and a gun the officer let her go. That scare was enough to shake her up, and eventually she stopped using drugs and returned to fulltime ministry as a pastor. What I love most about her story is how, even when she was high, God still used her to minister to others. She had church even when she seemed far from God. You may disagree that God can use someone who is steeped in sin, and no church should allow an adulterous or illegal drug-addicted pastor to lead them. But thats not the point Im trying to make here. Im talking about how God uses sinners, for thats what we all are, to reach other sinners with the gospel of grace, and he doesnt wait until we reach a certain level of sinlessness. Even the Apostle Paul, the greatest Christian who ever lived, called himself the chief sinner (1 Timothy 1:15). A few months ago, I came to church early and sat in the parking lot debating stuff with myself. Without a whole lot of faith, I asked God to please show up for me, telling him that I needed his mercy in my life, because without it Im toast. Frankly, I didnt expect him to answer my prayer, because I felt I didnt deserve it. But he graciously humbled himself and showed himself in so many ways, but most personally in the songs we sang: If you tarry till youre better, you will never come at all ... Not the righteous, not the righteous; sinners Jesus came to call ... Let not conscience make you linger, nor of fitness fondly dream; all the fitness he requires is to feel your need for him and then finally, He has washed us with his blood. The truth is, if I tarry till Im better well, Ill never be better enough. I will always have need for improvement. Even so, just as I am, wherever that may be in my spiritual process, God can use me. After church that night, with the hymns still echoing in my mind, I hugged my bulletin all the way out to my car. God is so good.Nancy Kennedy is the author of Move Over, Victoria I Know the Real Secret, Girl on a Swing, and her latest book, Lipstick Grace.

fect. Anderson said the mushrooms tend to come up around the time dogwood trees are blooming. She said morels often prefer alluvial soil loose sedimentary soil that was once either submerged or deposited by a body of water. We have a lot of biodiversity, said Cutshaw. Our whole area can offer some amazing finds. The mushroom was removed from the ground and sent to Dr. Matt Smith, curator of the mycology herbarium at University of Florida, for a more thorough examination. He requested that I collect it and dry it out, said Anderson. He was very excited. According to Anderson, farmers have been trying to commercially raise morel mushrooms for more than a hundred years. So far, none of these attempts have succeeded. This has helped develop the search for morels into a type of wide-spread recreational hobby. People hunt these like crazy, said Anderson. The word got around. I had people calling me from Indiana and Colorado. They are the most delicious culinary mushroom you can ever put your mouth on, said Anderson. Parramore and the rangers said they would be watching the area next year, intent on possibly finding more of the elusive mushrooms. The Rural School and Community Trust is a national nonprofit organization that addresses the crucial relationship between good schools and thriving communities. Its work addresses both the school-based practices and the policy contexts that support rural schools, their communities, and their students. The School Fund is one of three programs the Leonore Annenberg Scholarship, Fellowship and School Funds administered by the Annenberg Public Policy Center at the University of Pennsylvania. The School Fund resources must be of immediate and direct value to, and use by, students. Greenville Elementary in Greenville was also selected to receive a grant from the School Fund. It will use its grant for technology to expand its music and visual arts curricula. Both schools will also participate in a place-based learning workshop provided by the Rural School and Community Trust. The workshop will support school staff to integrate their School Fund projects with ongoing efforts to identify community-based learning resources and connect students academic work to meaningful outcomes in the community.
