THURSDAY, MAY1, 2014 WWW.GADCOTIMES.COM VOLUME113/ISSUE18 50 16 PAGES, 1 SECTIONBobcats sink teeth into district title/A6 000HEVC ROBERT ALLENTimes ReporterA potential wave of industrial progress expanding from the Panhandles coast at Port St. Joe in Gulf County could help put Gadsden Countys economy back on track. Plans include a direct connection with Gadsden County via Chattahoochees rail interchange between the Apalachicola Northern line and the CSX mainline. The Gadsden County Development Council or GCDC and Opportunity Florida gathered area business, industry and government leaders at the Greensboro train depot April 24 to discuss future developments in Port St. Joe that could have a real impact on the surrounding region, including Gadsden County. Sure, we want everything we can get in the county, said Lee Garner, Chattahoochees city manager. We stand ready to assist and help in any way we can. During a later interview, Garner stepped carefully across the rusted tracks in the Chattahoochee switching yard. The old CSX depot stood shuttered behind him. While surveying the scene, Garner projected that the dredging project in Port St. Joe could double the number of trains coming through the tiredlooking yard on any given dayto say nothing of the increased loads those trains may carry. Garner pointed across the tracks to an empty lot on the opposite side. There, he said, is a shovel-ready 40acre site in a perfect position to become part of the potential development. The city manager said he sees potential for both factories and warehouses in the available space along the tracks throughout the county. Buddy Pitts, mayor of Greensboro, asked during the April 22 meeting about the projects timetable. Leonard Costin, chairman of Port St. Joes Port Authority, projected the project could be completed sometime ROBERT ALLENTimes Reporter The Quincy Police Department arrested Phillip Dale Lowe, 19, of Tallahassee, on April 22 after he was identified in a photo lineup. He is the latest suspect in the April 11 shooting at the Gadsden Arms Apartments in Quincy. According to a report from QPD, the arrest followed a wealth of new information the department procured vie interviews during the two weeks following the crime. Suspect Chauncey Reed Hawkins chose to provide information when Gadsden deputyies visited him at the Leon County Jail after the neighboring agency arrested him. Hawkins, according to the QPD report, told investigators the situation devolved after he and three friends met April 11 in the Sawdust community. Hawkins said they were high on molly (an illegal street drug) and wanted to go looking for more. They then decided to go to the Gadsden Arms Apartments in the previously reported black Nissan Titan, now identified as stolen. Hawkins said Lowe drove with Chazdin Miller in the front passenger seat while he sat in the backseat with another suspect, Keontai Watson. Once at the apartment complex, Hawkins said Miller stepped out of the truck then stopped the first man he came across and hit him over the head with a handgun. According to the QPD report, Hawkins said Miller Phillip Lowe Quincy nixes sheriffs proposal ROBERT ALLENTimes ReporterThe future relationship between city and county law enforcement was one of the issues Quincy commissioners addressed April 22 during their regular meeting. Other topics included the fate of bus services and collection dilemmas. Walter McNeil, chief of the Quincy Police Department, spoke at the meeting, introducing a new idea and hearing commissioners reactions. McNeil told the commissioners he was approached by the Gadsden County Sherriffs Office about possibly combining dispatch functions and later building a facility designed to house both agencies, further merging the two entities. Both agencies currently maintain independent operations. They do, however, already share the countys building, a facility rearranged for this dual duty about two years ago when the city police department moved from the older building on the southwest corner of Duval and West Jefferson streets. Commissioner Keith Dowdell said he couldnt offer a position on the new consolidation ideas because he was not yet aware of the pros and cons. Other commissioners, however, were ready to state definite stances. Im totally against it, said Commissioner Larry Edwards. People call that number (for QPD) to get their lights turned back on. Its used for a lot more than just 911. Some of its unnecessary but they do a great job. Others agreed. I oppose this at every turn, said Commissioner Andy Gay. I think this would be a big loss for the city of Quincy. City commissioners give chilly reception to plan for Gadsden County Sheriffs Office, Quincy Police Department to share dispatch, build new facility See CITY/ Page A2 Right place, right time Elmon Lee Garner, city manager of Chattahoochee, stands beside the rusted tracks in the citys CSX switching yard looking toward a time when the interchange could become a much busier place. Photo by Robert Allen Gadsden poised to benefit from port project See TRACK/ Page A2 Port dredging project key to railroad success ROBERT ALLENTimes ReporterPositive economic impact from the AN line in Gadsden County will largely depend on the successful authorization and completion of the dredging project in Port St. Joe. A harbor of greater depth is necessary for the size of the ships that will bring increased industry and development to the region. Enova Energy and Green Circle have submitted letters of intent to do business with the port if it were to be dredged, according to information presented at the April 24 meeting in Greensboro. According to Strategic Opportunities for Port St. Joes Emerging Port, an informational pamphlet published by the Gulf County Chamber of Commerce, Port St. Joe is an ideal location for this largescale shipping. Through a combination of natural geography and available avenues, Port St. Joe simultaneously presents a shorter connection to critical points both north and south of its position. For example, the same pamphlet reports Port St. Joe offers a shorter sea route to the Panama Canal than both Miami and Houston. Houston is simply farther away. And from Miami, ships must navigate around Cuba, lengthening the voyage. Similarly, by both rail line and interstate highway, Port St. Joe is closer to New York and Chicago than the ports in Miami and Houston. The port also has a 5.6-mile canal, connecting ocean shipping to U.S. inland waterways. This feature could facilitate regional distribution as well as transportation of cargo to riverside cities such as Memphis and Pittsburgh. QPD: Shooting update includes arrest, crack sales alibi See ARREST / Page A7 Voters cast ballots in Havana, Gretna, QuincyHavana, Gretna and Quincys local elections concluded when voting closed at 7 p.m. Tuesday, April 29. The voting went throughout the day, beginning at 7 a.m. Results arrived shortly after the polls shut. In the Quincy Commission District 1 race, incumbent Keith Dowdell received 221 votes while Ronterious Green received 142 and Vivian Howard received 23.The district contains 1,037 registered voters and 386 cast votes in this election or 37.22 percent participated. In the Gretna Commission Seat 1 race, incumbent Clarence M. Jackson II received 134 votes while Essie Bethea-Gipson received 63 and John E. Smith Jr. received 42. The district contains 1,028 voters and 239 cast votes in this election or 23.25 percent participated. In the Havana Town Council races, T.J. Davis beat Sidney D. Conyers, 217 to 175, for the group 4 seat. Robert L. Miller beat Decorkus Allen, 221 to 173, for the group 6 seat. And Shirley A. McGill beat Russell Sanders, 310 to 87, for the group 7 seat. The town contains 1,382 registered voters and 400 cast votes in this election or 28.94 percent participated. Havanas ballot also included a non-binding straw poll. City ordinance prohibit the sale of any alcoholic beverage at any time on Sunday. The poll asked residents, Are you in favor of allowing the sale of alcoholic beverages on Sundays from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m.? Around 60 percent of voters supported the idea, 236 voting in favor of alcoholic sales on Sunday and 151 voting against it. More information on all the local elections will follow in the May 8 edition of The Gadsden County Times. NEWS BRIEF From wire reports

A2THEGADSDENCOUNTYTIMES THURSDAY, MAY1, 2014 WWW.GADCOTIMES.COM 000HLMD 000HJ3Y Last weeks discussion concerning a new contract for bus services through Big Bend Transit remained a topic of consideration. The issue carries countywide implications because the citys decision will help inform the BOCCs decision to continue or stop bus services throughout the rest of Gadsden County. I would be hardpressed during budget season to fund this the way weve been funding it, said Commissioner Derrick Elias. He wasnt alone. Weve got to find an alternative because it is cost prohibitive, said Edwards. It costs too much to provide this service. According to Mike Wade, interim city manager, last year the service cost $82,000. The city contributed $36,000 toward the service. The county contributed $36,000. And Big Bend Transit anticipated collecting $10,000 through fares. I agree with the comments, said Gay. Somebody needs to start some dialogue, start a panel and research some alternatives. Collecting payment for long-standing delinquent utility accounts was another topic of discussion. The city has a number of customers who either chronically chose not or cannot pay all or part of their utility bills. The city has decided to hold these customers to their contracts and begin shutting off utilities at the chronically delinquent addresses. I will be holding these customers to the terms of their agreements, said Ann Sherman, director of customer service. Look forward to phone calls. No one objected to the announcement. I dont mind the tightening of the belt, said Elias. I dont mind the phone calls. Ill sit back and wait for the phone calls. Im sure theyll come. The ensuing conversation revolved around the utilities customers who tell the city they are struggling. Sherman and the commissioners discussed what circumstances constitute an extenuating enough situation for the customer to be allowed an extensionsas well as how these circumstances could be objectively assessed, and who would apply this discretion. Maybe theyve got problems we dont know about, said Edwards. Thats a tough decision for anybody to make. The meeting was Edwards last. He is not seeking re-election. My hope for you all is that we can get this thing turned around, said Edwards. I think were heading in the right direction. CITYContinued from Page A1 next year. Were very excited about the regionality of what the port will do, said Costin. The rail line in question, Gadsdens direct connection to the pending development, is currently operated by the Apalachicola Northern or AN Railway. But the line is owned by Genesee and Wyoming or G&W. We do have a lot of experience moving a lot of different materials, said Jim ODonnell, a representative from G&W. Weve got experience moving a little bit of everything. ODonnell emphasized the advantages of increased involvement with a small rail company. He explained G&W can more easily adjust local shipping schedules to more closely satisfy the specific business needs of regional customers along the line. The regions make the decisions for how they do things, said ODonnell. We want to be flexible. We dont want to be monolithic. The G&W representative also repeatedly stressed safety during the presentation. We have to do it safely every day, said ODonnell. Theres no excuse not to do that. Its important for your community. We dont want to come into your community and derail trains and knock down buildings. ODonnell said he hopes Florida is truly open for business, as the states welcome signs say because George and Alabama are right next door, offering policies that are welcoming to new and developing industry. According to Jim Brook, executive director of Opportunity Florida, a boutique cruise line has already made plans to start trial stops at the developing port an arrangement that could develop into a regular industry. Brook also said the port includes a vast shovel-ready sight, just waiting for new industry. It sounds like the port has re-written chapters of history over the years, said Beth Kirkland, executive director of Tallahassees economic development council. And theres an opportunity for a new chapter. As the meeting concluded, a northbound AN train rumbled along the line, through Greensboro and toward Chattahoochee. Many of the attendees, mingling on the opposite side of the depot, hurried around the building to watch the swaying cars pass, a precursor possibly to Gadsden Countys new industrial future. TRACKContinued from Page A1 Gadsden regains face-to-face access to Social SecurityGadsden County residents can now access Social Security services using a live video chat, according to an April 23 press release from the county administration. The service will connect county residents to the Tallahassee SSA office, allowing them to speak directly with a federal employee. The implementation of this video capability is a result of organized efforts from Gadsden County leaders and the Social Security Administration. The live video service is currently available at only one of the Gadsden Countys public libraries, William A. McGill Library, located just south of Quincy at 734 Pat Thomas Parkway. Hours of service are 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Friday, except for Wednesday when the service will close at noon. The public-use computers are available without the video conference facility at the three Gadsden County Public libraries Havana, Quincy, and Chattahoochee as well as the Tallahassee Community College Quincy House.

The plot of Delusional revolves around a paranoid schizophrenic patient who claims he is being framed for the brutal murder of a Florida State Hospital psychologist. Since the victim was the former psychologist of the accused, there is reason to believe he is guilty. He steadfastly denies the crime, though there is circumstantial evidence aplenty.

RAJ JAYADEVAmerican ForumIrecently received a poem, The New Jim Crows, from an unlikely source: North Carolina Public Defender Danny Spiegel. Spiegels poem is an outpouring of the heartache and frustrations of his occupation, of how he is forced to bear witness to the damages of mass incarceration. Spiegel passionately tells the story of his clients teen Melissa, who is tracked from foster care into jail; the schizophrenic who ends up locked in a cell rather than in treatment; and the broken families of the failed war on drugs. The poem reads lonely and angry. But the irony is that Spiegels narrative identifies those who can stop mass incarceration: those facing incarceration, their communities and the attorneys who represent them. Public-defense offices cannot do the job the community wants them to do because they dont have the resources. The community then loses faith in defender offices because they arent doing the hoped-for job. The results? Our courtrooms have become plea mills, with a national plea rate above 90 percent, leading to mass incarceration. Shockingly, more than 1 percent of American adults are behind bars. One in 31 adults are in some phase of penal supervision prison, parole or probation. These staggering numbers share one thing in common: They all got there through criminal courts. And, there is at least an 80 percent probability they were represented by a public defender. Those numbers, if tapped, could be a game changer. Incarceration decreases dramatically when a public defender partners with his or her clients community. Families of people entangled in the justice system come together to make strategic decisions about their cases and determine how to better utilize or improve representation of their attorney. The families become extensions of the legal defense team scouring police reports, discussing defense strategy, creating mitigation material and maintaining a presence in the courtroom. The oftenoverworked attorney then has backup to explore options other than the one the system is counting on the attorney and client to take: the quickest path to a plea deal. An individual facing charges is emboldened with the knowledge that the attorney is less likely to be coerced into that plea deal. Family and community participation changes the balance of power in the courts and, consequently, the outcome of cases. Participating in cases and being able to look under the hood of the courts shows where community power can be flexed into changing policies. For example, in our county, public defenders werent staffing the misdemeanor arraignment courts. As such, individuals were going to their first court date without counsel and negotiating pleas with a judge themselves. As a community, we assumed that was just the way the system worked. It wasnt until our community organizing work took us to courts in other counties that we realized how injurious our countys practices were. The local civil rights community called on the public defender to staff the misdemeanor arraignment court. Armed with the knowledge that the community was behind her, the public defender went to county purse-holders and received funding to staff attorneys at that court. The result was a systemic change that will save thousands of people from improper conviction. We need to shift perspective, to stop thinking of public defense as a service and to begin thinking of it as part of a movement to challenge mass incarceration. For many, public defense is viewed as an apparatus of the criminal justice system, not an extension of the movement to reform the system. Its why we hearA4THEGADSDENCOUNTYTIMES THURSDAY, MAY1, 2014 WWW.GADCOTIMES.COMOh, Oh! I said to myself as my wife excitedly ordered me to leap from my comfortable computer chair, at once, to join her somewhere in the yard. She was outside of our house, the side bordering her friend Shirleys. I knew instantly her yelling was because she had spotted another one of those snakes that have been crawling around that section of yard lately. I hurried out to the garage and grabbed the largest shovel, setting myself up to reluctantly do in an innocent black snake. The experience was dj vu all over again as I thought back a few years to when I used to maintain my mother-in-law Flos vast and wild property in the swamplands of Wacissa in the Florida Panhandle. Flo had been great for working out in her yard while I was mowing by raking small piles of yard debris and fallen pecan tree limbs for me to pick up. Little did she know that cottonmouths used to love shading themselves under her small piles of lawn debris. Her now-deceased son Bill, and I didnt have the heart to let her know wed just as soon shed not raked those piles up for us. A couple of times she called over to me to drop whatever task it was I was doing and assist her in killing a cottonmouth snake. How I dreaded that! I wonder if any of you remember the columns I wrote about helping my mother-in-law, Flo, out and some of the predicaments she used to get me into. The womans been gone a couple of years now. Judy and I miss her dearly, even if our lives had to be put on hold while caring for her. Lately, when Im inside writing, Judy will call out to me or knock on the window. Intuitively, I know what she wants me to do: Kill another snake. Actually, Ive not killed one snake for her. Black snakes are our friends. They eat bugs and rodents and really dont want to mess with us. However, Judy and neighbor Shirley believe we should kill any snake in sight. There was a time I would have been only too glad to put any of those reptiles to death. However, Ive been in the South too long. Ive learned to tolerate them, to live and let live, so to speak. I walked alongside the house, cautiously, armed with shovel, while Judy kept yelling: Kill him! Kill him! Now, honey, hes not in a good enough position for me to go striking him with that shovel, and if I miss Ill only get him angry and he may turn on us, I replied calmly. Coward! she yelled. Give me the shovel; Ill kill him myself. I gave her the shovel and she placed it onto the snakes back. Ive got him. Now kill him! she ordered. I repeated I didnt want to kill the black snake. Judy released the shovel from its back and he slithered away at so fast a speed I was amazed. Perhaps I should have killed the snake after all, as weve spotted at least three baby black snakes in that same area. No doubt we have a family of them. They like to crawl through 1-inch holes in the tops of three lids to Shirleys sprinkler system. Judy likes to watch them crawl in and out of those holes from time to time from the window of our guest bedroom. I have to admit Ive found myself doing the same thing since I know we have a black snake family. Frankly, Im beside myself. I really do not want to kill them; yet, I dont like the idea of at least three of them crawling around so close to our house. She called me from outside again yesterday and told me to again bring the shovel. I obeyed and picked up the shovel and headed for the side of the house. See him! See him! she yelled to me almost out of breath. Kill him! Kill him! No, I answered. Hes too close to the house; and I know I wont be able to get a clean shot at him. She again called me a coward; only this time she didnt grab the shovel. One of the Florida Pest Control workers stopped by a short while later to do some bug killing. Judy must have spilled the beans about the black snakes and her cowardly husband, too afraid to go out and kill the snakes. Mr. Ray, the man said, If Ida seen one of those snakes youd be hearing me screaming from the top of my truck cab. I do not like snakes, and I see at least four every day. I guess Im going to have to find some kind of strategy before my wife and her friend, Shirley, go out and hire someone to kill those danged snakes. I sure as heck dont feel like doing it. How are the snakes in your neighborhood? I do remember seeing a few small rattlers while mowing my lawn in Havana. Hope if you have them theyre not poisonous or that you dont have someone in the family starting to question your manhood, like I do. God bless you. ROBERT DODGE, MD PeaceVoiceThis past Thursday, April 24, historic lawsuits were filed against the U.S. and the eight other Nuclear Weapons States (NWS) of the world to meet their treaty obligations to disarm by the courageous tiny island nation Republic of the Marshall Islands. Since 1970, the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) has obligated nations to negotiate in good faith for complete disarmament a world without nuclear weapons. Forty-four years later, with no negotiations in sight, the world has become a more dangerous place with stockpiles of more than 17,000 nuclear weapons. Four more nations now have nuclear weapons, and the original five continue to invest in and modernize their nuclear forces with expenditures expected to be in excess of $1 trillion over the next 10 years. But one small nation has stood up to say, Enough is enough. The Republic of the Marshall Islands (RMI) has taken action in the International Court of Justice and in the U.S. Federal District Court to compel the nine nuclear weapons nations to comply with their obligations, under the NPT and customary international law, and begin negotiations for nuclear zero. The Marshallese people know first hand about the destructive consequences of living in a world with nuclear weapons.From 1946 to 1958, the U.S. conducted 67 nuclear weapon tests in the Marshall Islands, the equivalent explosive power of one-and-a-half Hiroshima bombs detonated daily for 12 years. They seek no compensation through these legal actions.Rather they act for the seven billion of us who live on this planet, to end the nuclear weapon threat hanging over all humanity. For the past year, the Nuclear Age Peace Foundation (NAPF) has served as a consultant to the RMI in support of this courageous initiative to fulfill the worlds nuclear disarmament obligation. They understand, as do the people of the Marshall Islands, that the only way to keep our loved ones safe is to relentlessly strive for the total elimination of nuclear weapons. This is not a partisan issue;it is a survival issue. As world leaders have made clear: The nuclear club should be abolished and anybody who has a nuclear weapon is the enemy of mankind. George Shultz, former U.S. Secretary of State The failure of these countries to uphold important commitments and respect the law makes a more dangerous place. This is one of the most fundamental moral and legal questions of our time.

David vs. Goliath goes nuclear Letters to the editorOpinionChallenging mass incarcerationParental homework, involvement key to quality childcareI want to encourage people to find the best in childcare for the safety and welfare of their children. The importance of childcare and pre-school education cannot be overstated. Cuts in federal funding make affordability difficult, but its worth it when it comes down to your children. An after-school program ensures working and late-working parents of a safe and educational environment for children who would otherwise be latchkey kidsleft unsupervised and sometimes in unsafe conditions. To provide quality care for the children, facilities should serve two full meals daily and a snack in the afternoon to hold the children until time to be picked up. Curriculums should meet the requirements of all state guidelines,and the staff should be in compliance with state rules and regulations and training. Children should be taught reading, counting, alphabets, colors, shapes and writing. Good after-school programs provide assistance with homework and school assignments. Childcare and development have been my life-long passion. It is a commitment as well as a career. I love to see kids have fun and learn. I believe in my heart that working with youth and small children requires a deep commitment to the welfare of each unique child. This commitment is not to be taken lightly. Theres a great demand for dependable, quality and professional early childhood education where children can grow and learn in a safe, healthy and productive atmosphere full of love and compassion. Visit as many day care centers as you can, review your choices, and select someone who will care and value your child as you would.

Yesterday when I was buying fish for dinner, Harry the seafood guy looked at me and said, Today has been a good day. He didnt say why, and I suppose I shouldve asked him. Even so, as I drove home with my two salmon steaks and the solitary fresh, humungously jumbo shrimp with its head still on that Harry tossed in as a freebie, Harrys words echoed in my thoughts. Today has been a good day. Earlier, my computer at work was misbehaving. Id been working on a series for Sundays paper about job stress, and right in the middle of writing one of the stories my computer froze and I lost some of the story. I felt intense job stress at that moment and wanted to punch my computer in the nose, but since our IT person would severely frown on that, I called my mom instead. Last year, she had a cornea transplant that didnt work, and she had been nearly blind for months after that. She had another transplant in February, and this one seems to be working. Mom sounded good, happy, relieved. It was good to talk to her. Today has been a good day. My husband recently discovered the sport of couponing. Hes retired and does our grocery shopping, and now hes having the time of his life BOGO-ing and saving $1 off his V-8 Juice. He goes to the gym and watches Extreme Couponingon TLC while on the treadmill. In 2006, he had quadruple heart bypass surgery and less than a year later he had another surgery for an abdominal aortic aneurism. That was a terrible yet God-blessed time in our lives, bringing us close together. It was during that time when I realized no matter how many years weve been married, it hasnt been long enough. It will be 39 years in May, and not nearly long enough. Today, my husband went grocery shopping. He bought stir-fry vegetables, bananas and the cheesy rice cake snacks I like. He cooked chicken burgers for dinner. I dont know what he does, but he makes the tastiest, juiciest ground chicken burgers. Its been a good day. Also today I discovered I had earned enough Amazon.com reward points from my credit card to get some more Bare Minerals foundation for free. Today was 80 degrees out, with very low humidity.

The Bobcats won three consecutive district crowns in 2010, 2011 and 2012 before being bounced in the opening game of the tournament last season. With the victory, the Bobcats also reached 20 wins for the season, as their record improved to 205. Were very proud to reach these two points in one season, said Bobcat Coach Jayme Williams. I cant say enough about how hard our kids have worked. They are very deserving. Munroe reached the final game as the top seed in the district by virtue of a perfect 6-0 regular season record against district foes FAMU, Tallavana and Aucilla. The Bobcats began the contest as if it would be a blowout, quickly jumping on top 6-1 after three innings. An RBI double by Bradley Klees, an RBI single by Bo Bailey and RBIs by Will Harris and Johnny Walkup provided the early offensive punch. But the host Warriors had other ideas and closed to 6-2 with a single run in the fourth.

For three years straight, the team has had to make lemonade out of the lemons that Aucilla thrusts at them in the form of dominating softball. Fortunately, the team is immune to the perils of traveling and will again attempt to thwart the Warriors for the right to continue playing softball. On April 23, Coach Mark Allen and his senior-less team, hit I-10 East for Jacksonville. The team easily disposed of the District 2 winner, First Coast Christian, by an 11-0 score. The two teams played scoreless ball until the Bobcats scored two runs in the top of the third. The team went on to score in each of the next three innings before ending the game after six innings due to the mercy rule. Hannah Wilde and Anna Jones each led with two hits and Jones also tallied two RBIs. Kadejah Glynn was two for two on the bases. The team was six for eight on stolen bases for the game. Pitcher Jeri Sloan struck out 10 while walking only one batter. Sloan, a right-handed junior, picked up her ninth win of the season. The team faced Aucilla Christian, who also won their quarterfinal contest, on Tuesday, April 22. The winner will then play for the right to participate in the 2A State Tournament in Vero Beach.

Hawkins said the badly bleeding man then handed over the molly he had on his person along with some cigarettes. According to the report, Miller then asked Hawkins for his gun, a weapon Hawkins said he purchased from Miller after Miller stole it from a police car. Hawkins said he handed it over. Now, with a pistol in each hand, Miller approached the playground where, according to Hawkins, he began pointing both weapons and demanding more molly from the people there. Hawkins said no one moved so Miller started shooting. He hit at least one man as he ran away, according to police records. At this point, Hawkins said an unidentified man began returning fire from an apartment doorway. Lowe, according to Hawkins, then began shooting as well, aiming toward the source of opposing gunfire. Shortly after this exchange, the foursome left. According to Hawkins, they were all together with Lowe still at the wheel of the stolen Nissan truck. Hawkins said they later abandoned the truck in Gretna. According to the QPD report, later assessment of bullet holes coincides with Hawkins account. Hawkins said at the time of the shooting they had all been awake for several days and gone through about 10.5 grams of cocaine, in addition to the molly. Miller, arrested April 18, attempted to provide an alibi proving his distance from the April 11 shooting. According to QPDs report, Miller told investigators that on April 11 he was likely in Tallahassee, selling crack cocaine somewhere on Ridge Road. He could not, however, offer more specific information. Lowe is now charged with armed robbery with a firearm, aggravated battery with a firearm, aggravated assault with a firearm, shooting into an occupied dwelling, discharging a firearm unlawfully and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.

ROBERT ALLENTimes ReporterA cheerleading showcase organized by the Crystal Riley Foundation was held April 26 at Shanks Middle School. The foundation, formed in memory of Crystal Riley after she was hit and killed by a teenage driver, hosted the showcase to promote discretion behind the wheel among young drivers. The event was the first of its kind the foundation has organized. I wanted to do this because Crystal was a cheerleader, said Cynthia Riley, Crystals mother. I dont want it to be a sad day when her birthday comesand this occasion took the familys mind off it. At the time of her death, Crystal, 15, was a junior varsity cheerleader at East Gadsden High School. Her birthday was a week before the foundation held the showcase. We wanted to do this to promote awareness for teen drivers, said Riley. The showcase included routines by cheerleaders from all score would hold for two more innings until Aucilla began a seventh inning rally that closed the gap to 6-5. We knew wed get their best shot, said Williams. We felt like managing our pitching would be a key and it turned out in our favor. Starting pitcher Casey Mathers, who had scattered seven hits to go along with two runs prior to the seventh, began to tire and eventually gave way to reliever Nolan Haire with two outs and runners on first and third in the oneun game. Haire coaxed a ground ball to Mathers, who moved from the mound to shortstop, and after relaying to Harris at second for the final out, the Bobcats and their fans began their celebration. This is something our guys wanted after last season, Williams exclaimed, and our fan support was phenomenal. Offensively, the Bobcats outhit the Warriors 10 to nine. Leading the way at the plate for Munroe was Nolan Haire with three hits (one run) and Bradley Klees with two (two RBIs, one run). Bo Bailey (two RBIs), Will Harris (one RBI, one run), Johnny Walkup (one RBI, one run), Stephen Miller (one run), and Casey Mathers (one run) added one hit each. Harris and Mathers also had a stolen base. Mathers was the pitcher of record, striking out three, walking one and surrendering nine hits while improving to 7-3 for the season. Haire picked up the save. It got a little more interesting than we would have liked toward the end, said Williams. But we hung on and finished the job. Well host Cedar Creek Christian from Jacksonville this Thursday in the first round of the regionals. Were excited to be in the playoffs and look forward to our first round match-up. The Saints, runners-up in District 22A, enter the post-season with a 19-10 record and bat a gaudy .374 as a team. They have also scored 234 runs (8.0 per game) while giving up only 67 (2.3 per game). First pitch is set for 7 p.m. at Bradford May Field. and are inspirations to their teammates as well as to all of us adults, said RFM Baseball Boosters President Rick Shiver. Its only fitting that the facility bears their name. Shiver and the baseball boosters raised funds and solicited contributions to get the facility constructed in a matter of weeks, beginning just after the 2014 baseball season got under way. Along with proceeds from memorial contributions and some sweat equity, the facility was completed with about half of the season remaining. All of the Bobcat baseball teams have been able to use the facility and the varsity team, currently 20-5, recently crowned as district champs, and preparing for the first round of the region playoffs, have been able to make good use of the structure that features two batting lanes and a tee area. It really allows us to do so much more during practice time, said Head Coach Jayme Williams. It allows us to be so much more efficient and have less time for standing around. It is also good for when the weather is bad and we either had to cancel practice or use the gym. The building was officially named the J.C. Partin-Josh Wilder Bobcat Baseball Practice Facility at a dedication ceremony just prior to the varsity Bobcats recent home game with Wewahitchka. Current Bobcat players and many guests, including the parents and family members of J.C. and Josh, gathered as keynote speaker Jimmy Harris reminded everyone of the RFM baseball history and the impact that the lives of the two players as well as the facility that honors them would have on future generations of Bobcats. They are two very special young men who loved and participated in Bobcat baseball, said Harris, and will serve as inspirations to the many athletes who come through this program and use this facility to become better players and ultimately better people. The facility, as well as being a welcome addition at Bradford May Field, will be a source of pride for many years to come. It will also play a large part in the future success of Bobcat baseball and two of its most beloved will forever be a part.

Last year the event drew a crowd of more than 700 4H youth. Even though the crowd was not overwhelming this year due to FCAT conflicts, the activities were a big hit. The group toured the Museum of Florida History, participated in a farm expo, took pictures with Florida Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam, visited several legislators and participated in several displays and exhibits.

with some diabolical twists, he keeps questioning some of his own assumptions and suspicions. This is the third book by Lewis that features the same protagonist, Ted Stevens, a Tallahasseebased attorney with substance abuse issues and family problems. Stevens is no saint and the author creates realistic character flaws. Although I did not read Conflict of Interest or Privileged Information, I was drawn to this novel because of the tie with Chattahoochee. The client and attorney share a complicated past relationship because Ted Stevens had once prosecuted Nathan Hart, though he suspected him of faking mental illness during the murder trial. Whether he successfully fooled clinicians or not, Hart now seems a credible suspect for this murder. Yet, why would he insist on being represented now by the same attorney who helped put him into the mental institution for a past crime? Could it all be mind games for revenge? Despite the patients unlikely insistence that he and his attorney are kindred spirits, the author does a very believable job introducing some tickles of doubt maybe the patient isnt completely out of touch. Maybe there really is a plot against him. Maybe not. This well-paced murder mystery keeps the reader trying to connect the dots right up to its surprising ending. This novel, along with Lewiss other two titles, are available to borrow from all branches of the Gadsden County Public Library System.

here are as green as they can possibly be and the sky its bluest blue. Last night I slept soundly and woke up rested. Got to work early and made a pot of decaf, sat and read the paper, got a text message from a friend saying she was thinking about me and that we should get together soon. My sister emailed to check on me. If too many days go by and she hasnt heard from me shell ask, Whats up?Im the oldest, but shes the caretaker of the family and makes sure everyone is OK. I always know I can count on her. Also, Im wearing really, really comfortable shoes and my favorite heather gray sweater. Today has been a good day. As I was out on the road today, I stopped at a bakery and bought a roll. When I got back in my car, I broke the roll in half and thought about Jesus, about how he broke bread the night before he died, gave it to his disciples and said, Take, eat. This is my body, broken for you. Later, I read in a little devotional book about hope: Hope acts on the conviction that God will complete the work he has begun even when the appearances, especially when the appearances, oppose it. The book quoted the prophet Jeremiah, who quoted God, saying, I have it all planned out plans to take care of you, not abandon you, plans to give you the future you hope for(Jeremiah 29:11, The Message). Sometimes a lot of the time I pay too much attention to opposing appearancesand forget that real hope isnt hope unless everything looks hopeless, that those are the times when God steps in and blows your mind. Today I thought about hope, ate a chicken burger, broke bread with Jesus, ordered some make-up, felt loved by family and friends and didnt punch out my computer. Today has been a good day.Nancy Kennedy is the author of Move Over, Victoria I Know the Real Secret, Girl on a Swing,and her latest book, Lipstick Grace.She can be reached at 352-564-2927, Monday through Thursday, or via email at nkennedy@chronicle online.com.

Public defender offices dont speak forcefully enough to demand resources and point out the systemic inequities leading to their high caseloads. But communities can advocate the changes public defenders need to make to do the job their clients deserve, and, in doing so, can take on the court machinery of mass incarceration. It is a matter of reciprocity: The community pushes for more resources for public defender offices, and in turn, the public defender offices better protect rights of community members.Raj Jayadev is executive director of Silicon Valley De-Bug, a community organizing, advocacy and media organization in San Jose, Calif.

The foundation also distributed pamphlets designed to reinforce the importance of responsible driving. Im very pleased with the outcome, she said. We had a good crowd. I wanted it to be like a pep rally. Every year since 2008, the foundation has provided a $500 scholarship to a senior cheerleader to help with college costs and a $250 award to an incoming freshman cheerleader to help with uniform costs. This wouldnt have been possible without the support of my family, said Riley. My family is my strength. Riley hopes to organize the showcase again next year, perhaps beginning an annual event.
