ROBERT ALLENTimes Reporter Thaddeus Shaw, A Quincy native, returned with his band to play at the Mothers Day concert May 10 at the Tanyard Creek Amphitheater. R&B singer Freddie Jackson headlined the concert. The evening also included performances by NSpire, Donnell Davis and the Maximum Treble Band, and The Intruders the legendary Philly soul group formed in the late 1960s. It was great, said Shaw, immediately after stepping off the stage. Not just to perform and come back but I had a little hand in getting it together. Shaw, who goes by T Shaw when he performs, said the event was designed to bring more activity and entertainment to Quincy. His band drove all the way from Philadelphia to play the show and they were quickly packing and returning to the Keystone state to catch a gig at the Hard Rock Caf in Philly. It came together by the grace of God, said Shaw, speaking about his band a group originally formed for a few studio sessions. I met the guys in Philly and they became family. We put together a tight unit.

It would allow me to do my job that much better, said Jerome Turner, chief of the Midway Police Department. It would polarize a lot of the decisions I have to make. Turner said a more black and white code of policies and procedures would be helpful when dealing with decisions that might be controversial. A press release issued by Leslie Steele, president of Steele Communications, on the day of the meeting, said Dot InmanJohnson called the city together in an effort to prohibit the police departments unionization. In a later Timesinterview, InmanJohnson said this was not true. She said she does not appose the police departments interest in unionization. She described Steele as the mouthpiece for negativity in Midway. The woman does not have a close relationship with the truth, Inman-Johnson said. According to the city manager, she only did her job: review the petitions delivered by the police department and respond to them within 20 days, Jerome TurnerMidway police chief.

ROBERT ALLENTimes Reporter Two California women, Destiny Dean and Shalana Riggins, were arrested May 8 by Havana police when the out-of-state pair sped past a parked officer on U.S. 27. According to the Havana Police Department report, they were traveling 47 mph in a 30 mph zone. When the officer arrived at the drivers window, he asked Riggins for her drivers license. According to the report, she provided the officer with a Texas drivers license, bearing the name Monique Mercado. The officer scanned the license but, according to the report, he received negative results. When he asked the then-stillunknown driver why this might be the case, the report says Riggins told the officer she didnt know. When the officer then asked her for her Social Security number, she said she didnt know it either. Dean, the passenger, provided the officer with a California identification and claimed to have no drivers license. She then gave the officer permission to search the car. He reportedly found three prepaid Visa cards, 11 Green Dot Money Pack cards and a prescription for diphenhydramine, prescribed to Jermaine Fudge. The officer also found Riggins real California identification, according to the report.

From staff reports Gretna school exceeds expectations ROBERT ALLENTimes Reporter Gretna Elementary School received an Exceeding Expectations Award from the East Coast Technical Assistance Center (ECTAC). Reginald James, district superintendant, presented the award during a ceremony and press conference May 13 at Gretna Elementary School. Its an enormous feat because we are being compared to schools throughout the state of Florida, said Sonja WilsonLewis, a reading specialist at Gretna Elementary. We strive at being the best in Gretna. We teach the kids no matter what your economic situation is, not matter whats going on at home, you can be one of the best students in the state of Florida. Academically, the award is a measure of the schools achievement in both math and reading We strive for excellence, said Chinita Bascom, a third-grade teacher at Gretna Elementary. We expose our students to a variety of genres so they are exposed to everything. Life is difficult as it is so in order for them to be successful, they have to be able to read and understand what they are reading. It spirals over into our math and science areas as well.

According to the report, Riggins said both Texas licenses were false and she had tried to use her fake Texas license because she was afraid of going to jail. According to the report, Dean said she and Riggins were approached by a man they only knew as Dre in Oakland, Calif. He asked if they were interested in making money. The pair then reported receiving airline tickets from a man they only knew as Dee. So the pair flew to Tampa, paid for a hotel room using a fake drivers license and a stolen credit card. Then, according to the report, they drove to St. Augustine the next day, where they tried the cards in a number of different banks. The pair succeeded in extracting $5,000 from an account at Community First Credit Union in St. Augustine, according the report. The report does not address how the pair secured transportation, why they entered Gadsden County or where they where heading at the time of their arrest. Dean is charged with credit card forgery and possession of a fraudulent drivers license. Her bond was $5,500. She was released May 10. Riggins is charged with possession of a fraudulent drivers license, false identification, and possession of legal drug without prescription. Her bond was $10,500.

Poole, Director Wanda DarseyWanda Blount Darsey October 18, 1941 May 6, 2014 Funeral services for Wanda Blount Darsey, 72, of Calvary, Ga., are at 11 a.m., Friday, May 9, 2014, at Family Worship Center, Cairo, Ga. Pastor Johnny Moore will officiate. Services will conclude at the Church. Interment will be in Piedmont Cemetery, Calvary, Ga. Mrs. Darsey passed away at Grady General Hospital, Cairo, Ga., on Tuesday, May 6, 2014. Active pallbearers will be the Administrative Council Elders of Family Worship Center. Mrs. Darsey was born on October 18, 1941, in Quincy, Fla., to the late Willis E. Blount and Louise Rudd Blount. On June 11, 1971, she married Terry Darsey, who survives. She retired from the Florida Department of Labor after 34 years. She was a devoted member of Family Worship Center, having spent her time preparing thousands of brownies for first-time guests. Survivors include: husband, Terry Darsey of Calvary, Ga.; daughter, Allison Brunson of Calvary, Ga., Nichole Tucker (R. C.) of Calvary, Ga.; grandchildren, Alexandra Brunson of Tallahassee, Fla., Kyle Brunson of Hosford, Fla., Slade Tucker and Addison Tucker, both of Calvary, Ga.; brothers-in-law, Johnny Darsey (Brenda) of Calvary, Ga., Neal Darsey (Debbee) of Calvary, Ga.; and a host of nieces and nephews.

When doors opened at the McGill Library in Quincy on the morning of April 1, an elderly lady approached the front desk requesting her Social Security papers. She was under the impression her files had been transferred to the public library when the local Social Security office closed up shop the day before. Within two weeks, Social Security services were indeed restored in Gadsden County, but its a new, paperless operation. Video-conferencing equipment was installed in one of the librarys study rooms so residents can meet face-to-face in real time with a Social Security representative to receive services that had previously been done at the building on East Jefferson Street. Same personalized services, just no lines or waiting! What are some of the services Gadsden County residents can receive through video delivery at the library? Well, just about everything one might need, such as benefit verification letters, changes of direct deposit or mailing address, SSN replacement cards, evidence of claims, enrollment for retirement benefits, Medicare changes, disability reviews and more. You now have quick access to and the convenience of talking privately with a Social Security representative without the time and expense of driving to the Tallahassee office for a scheduled appointment. For those who would like to conduct their own business online by computer, theres a desktop link on all Gadsden County public access library computers to take you directly to the Social Security Administration website. Just click on the SSA Express icon to receive most of the same services you can do by video conference or onsite at the Tallahassee office. The Gadsden County Public Library System is delighted to host these services as part of a pilot project. The U.S. Social Security Administration launched this experiment in 2009 to provide cost-effective assistance to busy or understaffed SSA offices and to increase their presence in rural areas. Hundreds of sites across the country are now connected with video-conferencing equipment in community centers, senior centers, homeless shelters, hospitals and on Indian reservations. Only two other locations in the Florida Panhandle have this kind of video service delivery available one at a workforce office in the tiny town of Century (near Pensacola) and another at a big veterans facility in Jacksonville. Quincy holds the unique honor of testing it out in a public library. Weve already had positive feedback and indications that it will be a hit. See LIBRARY / Page A8 Whats Up?

TALLAHASSEE The 2014 Legislative Session was productive and meaningful for the State of Florida. Sen. Bill Montford (D-Tallahassee) was an active part in passing many bills that will help the hardworking communities of North Florida. Montford maintained strong advocacy for the needs of his 11 counties: Calhoun, Franklin, Gadsden, Gulf, Hamilton, Jefferson, Leon, Liberty, Madison, Taylor, and Wakulla. When asked about the 2014 Session, Montford said, The country can easily look to Florida as an example of how common-sense and principled answers can be found on both sides of the aisle and quite frankly in the middle of the aisle. We have and will continue to work together, Senate and House, Democrat and Republican to do what is best for Florida. In the 2014 Session, Montford helped to shape the following legislative decisions: N Springs Protection: Senator Montford co-sponsored legislation with four other Senators in a bi-partisan effort that became known as the Springs Bill. It addressed the many water issues that the State of Florida is facing. While the bill passed the Senate, it did not make it out of the House. We started very important and dire conversations about the state of our invaluable and irreplaceable springs in Florida and we have every intention of continuing them next year, said Montford. N Maintaining the Florida Retirement System and State Employee Health Insurance: Montford is well known in the Senate as an advocate and voice for state workers and as such he helped to maintain the current, sturdy Florida Retirement System that faced many challenges throughout the 2014 Session. He was also instrumental in defending the well-managed health insurance policies for state workers. N Preservation of the Instructional Materials Process: Montford was pivotal in the preservation of the statewide instructional materials process, which will not only maintain cost savings for local school districts but also give parents more opportunity for input in their childs learning materials. N Effective Timeline for School Accountability: As a long-time educator, Montford advocated for a realistic timeline to ensure the proper implementation of the many facets in the Public School Accountability program including technology and testing. N Local Pharmacy Choice: Communities will now be able to choose their local pharmacies or mailorder when ordering prescriptions on the State Group Insurance PPO (Preferred Provider Organization). N Tax Cuts: The Florida Legislature came together this year to offer many hard working Floridians much-needed tax cuts totaling $500 million. It included reduced annual motor vehicle license renewal registration fee. This alone will save drivers between $20 and $25 each. N Rural Areas of Critical Economic Concern (RACEC): The Legislature passed legislation to help cities in RACEC communities avert the cost of removing or relocating utility lines on the State Highway System in certain circumstances, byA4THEGADSDENCOUNTYTIMES THURSDAY, MAY15, 2014 WWW.GADCOTIMES.COMIdont care how well a church service or one of my better sermons is going, a glitch could occur at any moment and usually does. No sooner had those words been uttered by guest Pastor Kerry Beaty, when a sudden, very loud electronic noise blasted throughout our sanctuary. I jumped. The large assembly for the revival at Leesburg Missionary Baptist Church had been on its feet at the time for the benediction when the interruption occurred. The glitch that Pastor Beaty had mentioned only a few minutes ago couldnt have been any timelier to help get his point across. A few minutes before the evening revival meeting of a few nights ago, I had handed copies of my first of two columns written about the revival to my local pastor, Cecil Brown. I wanted to be sure Pastor Beaty had a copy before he left to return to his own congregation at Lone Oak Baptist Church in Plant City. I also shared with Brother Cecil that by rushing to write two columns dealing with the excitement of my first revival I had made a dear sacrifice. You see, I write my columns at least a week in advance. My next published column for May 15 would have featured Mercuries. Yep, Id be writing about the now-defunct, Mercury automobile and Alan Jackson singing about them and the part that Mercuries played in my life. In my haste and excitement to write a column about the revival to share with you, I figured Id merely have to make a few minor adjustments on my computer dealing with files and documents. Id just switch the dates and a couple of other minor things and the column on Mercuries could be published after my later column written about the revival. Did I ever panic when I lost the essay Id written on Mercuries and could not retrieve it! Thats twice in less than a month I had written a column for you of about 900 words only to have to rewrite it in its entirety a second time. Yes, I most certainly will have to be more careful with how I save my weekly essays on my computer, where I save them, and how I save and name the files. Im sure most of you can empathize with me about unforeseen computer problems, glitches, and the agony that sometimes occurs. The Rev. Beaty continued with this revival nights theme on the subject of glitches and human beings having to deal with unforeseen circumstances or setbacks often, and no matter how well things are going in our lives, a glitch is liable to and most assuredly would occur when least expected. He reminded us that all people should always be prepared to deal with stumbling blocks or setbacks that may suddenly appear directly ahead whatever our path. As the Apostle Paul has so often reminded Christians throughout the ages, his life, devoted to spreading the word of Jesus Christ, had been very difficult most of the time, with glitches galore, during his long, effective ministry. He and his brothers in Christ had faced death on many occasions. Even with all the obstacles Paul had been faced with he kept the faith and moved, often stumbling, forward in his ultimate quest to spread the word of Jesus Christ to as many people as possible throughout the world of his time. Today we are all living in a fallen world. Watching the news, be it local, national or international is vivid audio/visual testimony that people and the physical world are crumbling before our eyes. At any moment we may take our last breath on Earth as we know it. How prepared are you for the end of time? Paul reminded the people he encountered along his spectacular journey that life was as dangerous back then as it is for us living in the 21st century. Beaty stressed that unrelenting faith in the Lord is what is needed more than anything to be saved from extinction in our troubled world. He said that one of the many Biblical passages we should focus upon was Pauls first letter to Timothy: 1 Timothy 1: 12-14: I thank Christ Jesus our Lord. who has given me strength, that he considered me faithful, appointing me to his service. Even though I was once a blasphemer and a persecutor and a violent man, I was shown mercy because I acted in ignorance and unbelief. The grace of our Lord was poured out on me abundantly, along with the faith and love that are in Christ Jesus. Had my own most recent, personal glitch, the loss of yet another Along Twin Ponds Road column, been caused or brought about by some higher power, or, that I should be writing first about a subject much more important, the revival, than the Mercury? Some of you may recall that when I first started writing my column, its title, was accompanied by the byline: Surely the presence of the Lord is in this space, a take-off on one of my favorite hymns, Surely the Presence of the Lord is in This Place. (I sang a solo of this beautiful hymn at my own Leesburg Baptist Church last Sunday.) That byline was very important to me, because I wanted to remind my readers every week, that from my very first column, written back in December of 2008, that it was my Lord who had inspired me to write it in the first place. I know in some of them you may have felt I hadnt given Him enough prominence. Im human; I have frailties, but I always try to let you know that somehow, somewhere, in each column, that the Lord is present in some form. It was along that wonderful early morning, daily walk along beautiful, pristine Twin Ponds Road when I felt closest to Him. It was during those times He most often provided me with profound ideas about His importance and omnipotence. Most of the time glitches did not impede me from hearing, heeding them and later passing the messages to you in my writing. I felt that God (and still do feel) was having a private dialogue with me at the time, urging me, stirring me, to write and share my experiences with Him to as many readers as possible. As I have shared with my now, two favorite pastors, Cecil Brown and our revivalist, Kerry Beaty, I have indeed been blessed by a golden opportunity to write for such a wonderful paper as The Gadsden County Times, wherein I am able to share my closeness to God and his goodness and loving care with you, with the hope that my trying to be optimistic and faithful each week might rub off onto you and make you feel better for a time. Pastor Kerry Beaty was exciting, passionate and faithful in showing up each night for a long week and giving his best to us who were thirsty for His work each night. The attendance each evening would grow more than the day before. What a testimony, to the great work he had done for us and the Lord! Thank you, brother. Our own Pastor Brown also toiled hard that week as did others who were responsible for organizing this blessed event. God bless you, also, readers. And, just in case youre wondering, I do indeed feel revived and alive right this minute! LAWRENCE S. WITTNER PeaceVoice Is overwhelming national military power a reliable source of influence in world af fairs? If so, the United States should certainly have plenty of influence today. For decades, it has been the worlds No. 1 military spender. And it continues in this role. According to a recent report by the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute, the United States spent $640 billion on the military in 2013, thus accounting for 37 percent of world military expenditures. The two closest competitors, China and Russia, accounted for 11 percent and 5 percent respectively. Thus, last year, the United States spent more than three times as much as China and more than seven times as much as Russia on the military. In this context, the U.S. governments inability to get its way in world affairs is striking. In the current Ukraine crisis, the Russian government does not seem at all impressed by the U.S. governments strong opposition to its behavior. Also, the Chinese government, ignoring Washingtons protests, has laid out ambitious territorial claims in the East and South China Seas. Even much smaller, weaker nations have been snubbing the advice of U.S. officials. Israel has torpedoed U.S. attempts to forge an Israeli-Palestinian peace settlement, the embattled Syrian government has been unwilling to negotiate a transfer of power, and North Korea remains as obdurate as ever when it comes to scuttling its nuclear weapons program. Of course, hawkish critics of the Obama administration say that it lacks influence in these cases because it is unwilling to use the U.S. governments vast military power in war. But is this true? The Obama administration channeled very high levels of military manpower and financial resources into lengthy U.S. wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, and ended up with precious little to show for this investment. Furthermore, in previous decades, the U.S. government used its overwhelming military power in a number of wars without securing its goals. The bloody Korean War, for example, left things much as they were before the conflict began, with the Korean peninsula divided and a ruthless dictatorship in place in the north. The lengthy and costly Vietnam War led to a humiliating defeat for the United States not because the U.S. government lacked enormous military advantages, but The limits of military power OpinionSen.

Please be sure to note the change of date for this meeting due to the Memorial Day holiday. The meeting will be the third Sunday in May, rather than the usual fourth Sunday. Robert Bob Hurst, vice-president of the Historical Society of Bay County in Panama City, will be the guest speaker. Hurst received his B.S. in Anthropology/Archaeology from F.S.U. and a Post Graduate Academic Diploma in Middle Eastern Archaeology from the University of London. He taught Middle Eastern history at an international high school in Tehran, Iran, and it currently president of his familys business in Panama City. His real love is in tracing historic trails and for many years he has plotted historic trails in this area of Florida. During high school, his article Mapping Old St. Joseph, Its Railroads and Environs was published in a 1961 quarterly of the Florida Historical Society. Hurst will present a review of his tracing of the 465-mile-long Spanish Road, El Camino Real, across northern Florida from Pensacola to St. Augustine, which took him through Gadsden and other nearby counties. The El Camino Real, also known as the Spanish Royal Road, is the oldest road in Florida and was first used by the Spanish beginning about 1565 for commerce and military defense. Later the road was used by the Spanish missionaries who spread Christianity to the Native Americans. Even though this road is of great historic significance, little recognition has been given to it in modern times. In many places, it has totally diminished from the scene and it is virtually unable to track. Mark your calendar now to join us at this meeting. Mr. Hurst will have many photos as well as a replica of a British cartographers 8-foot-long drawing of the old road. Come to this program and hear about some surprising evidence he found in this area of North Florida. Contact WGHS at info@gadsdenhistory.org, 850442-6434, or P.O.

WWW.GADCOTIMES.COMTHEGADSDENCOUNTYTIMES THURSDAY, MAY15, 2014 A7 After besting rival Aucilla Christian three times this season, the last for the District 1-2A championship, the Munroe Bobcats couldnt make it four for four. Their season came to an abrupt end in the regional playoffs as the visiting Warriors prevailed 4-1 Tuesday, May 6, at Bradford May Field. Aucilla limited Munroe to only two hits and took advantage of Bobcat errors to complete the upset. We did not hit the ball well at all, said Coach Jayme Williams. Their pitcher did a great job of mixing up his pitches and he kept us off balance all night. He pitched a great game. The game stayed scoreless until the bottom of the third when the Bobcats Myles Edwards lifted a two-out fly to leftcenter that was dropped, allowing Stephen Miller to score the Bobcats first and only run. The score remained 1-0 until the top of the fifth when Aucilla would take advantage of some timely hits and Bobcat errors to plate four runs. We werent as efficient in the field as we normally are, said Williams. We knew it was going to be a tough game, and I think we might have been a little tight, but weve overcome similar deficits this season. This time, we just couldnt get the hits when we needed them. The Bobcats tried to rally in the top of the sixth, but a two-out run on a misplayed infield fly was erased when the first base umpire overturned the run by ruling that the fielder was interfered with, ending the inning. The Bobcats would go down in order in the seventh and their season, which featured twentyone wins, came to a close. For the game, Will Harris and Myles Edwards collected the only Bobcat hits. Nolan Haire took the loss, as the junior starter went five and one-third innings, striking out three and walking three while yielding four earned runs. Were disappointed that it came to an end, but we had a good season, said Williams. Well miss our two seniors, Myles (Edwards) and Stephen (Miller), but weve got seven of our starters returning, so we expect to play some good ball again next season. This is a great group of ball players and Im very proud of what they accomplished.

In addition, the legislation will allow municipalities within a RACEC or a RACEC community to compete for project funding using Small County Outreach Program (SCOP) criteria. N Flood Insurance Legislation: Legislation was also passed to establish a private flood insurance market in Florida, which will hopefully lower flood insurance rates for Florida Citizens. The proposal is aimed at addressing the federal flood insurance crisis caused by the rising rates being imposed by the National Flood Insurance Program. Budget Items: In recognition of the importance of acting this year on Floridas springs, the legislature funded $25 million for springs restoration plus another $1.7 million for springs monitoring. The legislature recognized the importance of improved learning environments for children and funded $14 million dollars for public school construction in Senator Montfords district. The Senate and the House agreed on $6,937.23 per student, public school funding, which is $176 more dollars per student than last year, and totals $18.9 billion toward public schools.

Even CIA ventures drawing upon U.S. military power have produced a very mixed result. Yes, the CIA, bolstered by U.S. military equipment, managed to overthrow the Guatemalan government in 1954. But, seven years later, the CIAdirected, -funded, and equipped invasion at Cubas Bay of Pigs failed to topple the Castro government when the Cuban public failed to rally behind the U.S.-instigated effort. Although the U.S. government retains an immense military advantage over its Cuban counterpart, with which it retains a hostile relationship, this has not secured the United States any observable influence over Cuban policy. The Cold War confrontation between the U.S. and Soviet governments is particularly instructive. For decades, the two governments engaged in an arms race, with the United States clearly in the lead. But the U.S. military advantage did not stop the Soviet government from occupying Eastern Europe, crushing uprisings against Soviet domination in Hungary and Czechoslovakia, or dispatching Soviet troops to take control of Afghanistan. Along the way, U.S. hawks sometimes called for war with the Soviet Union. But, in fact, U.S. and Soviet military forces never clashed. What finally produced a love fest between Ronald Reagan and Mikhail Gorbachev and ended the Cold War was a strong desire by both sides to replace confrontation with cooperation, as indicated by the signing of substantial nuclear disarmament agreements. Similarly, the Iranian and U.S. governments, which have been on the worst of terms for decades, appear to be en route to resolving their tense standoff most notably over the possible development of Iranian nuclear weapons through diplomacy. It remains unclear if this momentum toward a peaceful settlement results from economic sanctions or from the advent of a reformist leadership in Tehran. But there is no evidence that U.S. military power, which has always been far greater than Irans, has played a role in fostering it. Given this record, perhaps military enthusiasts in the United States and other nations should consider whether military power is a reliable source of influence in world affairs. After all, just because you possess a hammer doesnt mean that every problem you face is a nail.

Let the cat out of the bag, I tell her. There is a long pause. Isnt that snitching? she finally asks. I have to laugh. I meant literally, I say, not figuratively. Speak English, she mutters as I hustle to the kitchen. There I find a brown paper bag on the floor with a fluffy black tail sticking out. The bag is undulating from the loud purring going on inside. Beebe loves bags handbags, shopping bags, grocery bags, book bags. Any bag is a playhouse, a hideout, a refuge, or a cat pad for him. I tickle the bag and the tail disappears as he spins around and a little nose and white whiskers appear. I point my toe at the bag and a little paw flies out like lightning and swipes at it. This is one of his favorite games. He hides in a bag, and when an unsuspecting person walks by, ankles and toes are attacked. He never uses claws or bites hard just a little nibble. Still, Nurse Judy always screams and makes a big deal of it. As I watch the melodrama unfold in my kitchen, I suddenly have a worry. I thought Beebes future career choices would be in the arts. He did love the violin and violin music. He is a great cat dancer, leaping and pirouetting as well as any ballerina. Then there are his poses as poised and majestic as any model. He certainly did seem to be headed toward the arts. With this new interest in bags of all kinds, Beebe may have other aspirations for his life. Does he want to be a bag lady Excuse me bag gentleman? Does he want to be a bagger at Harveys or Winn-Dixie? I confide my fears to Nurse Judy. She scoffs at me. Beebe would love to be a bag lady errrr gentleman and sleep under bridges or in a cardboard box, but he is only allowed outside on his leash. Besides, he could never push a shopping cart. Then I guess hell be a bagger, I say. He could never be a bagger, Nurse Judy says, chuckling. He would be in everyones grocery bag and the groceries would still be on the belt. No, you dont have to worry about that. Still, wanting to be the perfect cat mom, I dont want to stifle Beebes dreams. I try to think of other career options utilizing bags. Perhaps Beebe would like to join a hunters club like the hounds do to retrieve game for their owners to bag, Nurse Judy offers. Beebe does kill bugs and he brings them to me and drops them at my feet. I reject this idea. I dont want my sweet kitty in such a vicious occupation. He could work in a department store cosmetic counter giving out gift bags, Nurse Judy Beebe Baloo explores career options See TALES / Page A11 Judy ConlinCAT TALES

Photo by Robert Allen Are you delight worthy? Those who know me know Im a front-row-pew sitter. My pastor used to think I sit there because I want to hang on his every word until I told him its because Im short; otherwise Id head for the back row. The problem with sitting in the front row is when youre smack in the pastors line of vision its difficult to slink down in your seat to hide from God. As everyone knows, pastors have a direct hotline to God. Whenever someone in the congregation is straying, God whispers that persons name in the pastors ear so he can tailor his sermon to make the strayer squirm. I remember one sermon when my pastor asked, How many of you are satisfied with your level of spiritual maturity? Squirm, squirm.

Im a big union person, myself, as a teacher for 28 years, said Inman-Johnson, noting she was not only a member but also a leader in the teachers union. I would be the last to prevent people from exercising their right to unionize. Inman-Johnson said her only misgivings so far regard the eligibility for certain members of the department to unionize. According to the city manager, the union precludes membership for ranks of authority and part-time members of the force. Turner, on the other hand, said he thought all members of the police department would be able to have union representation. According to Inman-Johnson, if enough petitions pass, a hearing will be held to determine the police departments next step. UNIONContinued from Page A1 said how good a time we was having at the show. Morrow said he was happy to be able to take people back, to sing some of the same sounds to which some audience members would remember dancing in their basements with girlfriends when they were teenagers. In honor of the holiday, they sang their song Ill Always Love my Mama. Morrow and the rest of the Intruders, the elder statesmen of Philly soul that evening, spent the rest of the evening backstage, quietly smoking cigarettes and intently listening to the younger generation perform of a sound they helped inspire. Freddie Jackson, armed with 11 No. 1 hits, brought a full band and ended the night strong. He stoked the crowed, inspiring a level of fervor unreached before his set. Jackson stripped down and loosened up as he proceeded through his performance. Fans in the front row reached and stretched to touch him throughout the show. SOULContinued from Page A1 suggests. This is certainly a more pleasing atmosphere. I contemplate it, but only for a moment, because I remember what he did with the last cosmetic gift bag I brought home. I found lipsticks under the sofa, foundation in the closet and mascara tubes in his toy box. He then tried to climb into the very small bag. I am afraid no customer would get his entire quota of gifts with Beebe as a consultant. He would have a great time playing behind the counter, however. Before I had a chance to discuss options with my cat, he jumped out of the bag, ran to my office and began tapping on the computer keys. I am relieved. I think he will be in the arts after all. I think he will be an author and probably have a book of Cat Tales. You can be whatever you want to be, I shout to him in my best motherly encouragement voice. He looks at me and runs into the living room and begins sharpening his claws on a slipcover. This does not please me. Stop. I tell him firmly. Destructive behavior will not be tolerated. Nurse Judy looks at me. I think hes telling you he wants to be an upholsterer, she says. Remember you said he can be anything. Shes right. I bite my tongue. Its tough being a cat mom. Judy TALESContinued from Page A8 Judy Conlins cat snoozes in a bag. Photo by Judy Conlin In light of that, how do you think God feels about you? Delighted? Disappointed? Mixed feelings? he asked. I knew the correct answer was delighted, but at that moment I didnt feel at all delight worthy. Actually, at that moment, despite my best efforts to look holy and pious and spiritually mature, I had been daydreaming about a shirt that was at home in a dye bath that I was hoping to get a certain shade of aquamarine to match a pair of pants I had found on sale. On top of that, I hadnt touched my Bible in weeks other than to move it out of the way of my coffee cup. Plus, I had been watching a lot of TV, and not news or educational TV or anything uplifting, but the junky stuff that rots your brain and your soul and I couldnt wait to get home from church to watch the latest episode of Who the (Bleep) Did I Marry? Delight worthy? Hardly. It seems I find myself returning to this same place again and again and again. I want God to be delighted in me, I want to be satisfied with my level of spiritual maturity I want to actually be spiritually mature. And I want new shoes. And pie. So, with all these competing thoughts in my head, I sat there in my front row pew spot in the pastors direct line of vision, squirming because I knew God was pointing me out, which made me try even harder to look as holy and sanctified on the outside as I could while on the inside trying to drum up Gods favor, all the while berating myself for not having my Bible with me so I could open it and at least pretend I was an object of Gods delight. Honestly, sometimes its exhausting being me. My pastor had asked, How do you think God feels about you? At that moment, and many moments since then, I figured he felt disgusted. As proof, just a few days before he had sent a plague upon me: an itchy rash on my chin and cheeks after trying a new peach tree and coconut facial scrub. Could locusts and gnats be far behind? A long time ago, the Apostle Paul scolded the Galatians (as he scolds us), accusing them of having a hex put on them. They had been gung-ho believers in grace alone by faith alone in Christ alone until they started forgetting what made them eligible for Gods delight was not what they did or did not do. It was not the rules they kept or the traditions they performed, but that God delights in his own simply because they trust in his Son. Paul wrote: How did your new life begin? Was it by working your heads off to please God? Or was it by responding to Gods Message to you? Are you going to continue this craziness? For only crazy people would think they could complete by their own efforts what was begun by God. If you werent smart enough or strong enough to begin it, how do you suppose you could perfect it? (Galatians 3:2-4 The Message) That passage always makes me laugh and always brings me back to the pastors question: How does God feel about me? If its as we sing: God has smiled on me; he has set me free. God has smiled on me; hes been good to me, then he delights in me, a daydreaming, junky-TV-watching, Bible-neglecting, spiritual slug. He delights in me. Not my sin, of course, but because of Jesus, he smiles on me. He smiles on you, too.

GRACEContinued from Page A1 ROBERT ALLENTimes ReporterThe Board of County Commissioners met for their regular meeting on May 6. Major discussion surround the current maintenance and future paving of private dirt roads in Gadsden County. According to Robert Presnell, county administrator, the county contains about a hundred miles of private roads. Larry Ganus of 2174 Frank Smith Road, a private citizen, spoke at the meeting in support of a new ordinance that would help provide for the paving of these private dirt roads in the county. Commissioner Brenda Holt reminded commissioners that paving dirt roads changes the way rain and run-off water flows, an issue fresh in many minds after the recent flooding throughout the county. Holt wanted to make sure communities would be aware of this side effect before they decided to pave. She also wanted to make sure commissioners understood the county government would become responsible for damages accrued by rechanneling current drainage patterns. Commissioner Doug Croley voiced similar concerns about drainage and also natural history. He said some private Gadsden roads have legacy trees along them, giant old trees that people do not want removed yet the paving and widening process will threaten them. Commissioner Sherrie Taylor expressed a different concern. What about the people that live on those dirt roads? she asked. We need to do our due diligence around here. The ordinance requires a roads surrounding community invest their private dollars to elevate a road to county standards before the county will adopt the maintenance of a private road. Commissioner Eric Hinson voiced concerns over the propriety of a public entity discussing the take-over of private roads. Im hoping were not doing anything illegal, he said. David Weiss, county attorney, confirmed that he was on lawful ground and assured the commissioners he would notify them if the situation were otherwise. The last discussed version of the ordinance would allow one road paved per year in each of the countys districts. Holt motioned to pass the ordinance. Taylor seconded the motion. Croley and Hinson voted in favor of the ordinance. Morgan voted against it. County plans pavement, gradually Submit information to the Gadsden County Times: Mail: 15 S.

Many think it is the Hospice House located in Tallahassee, when instead hospice services can be provided wherever the patient wishes to be. Our hospice team is a group of professionals in a variety of fields who work together to provide end-of-life care in the eight county area, including Gadsden. This can be in the patients home, a nursing home, an assisted living facility, or even the hospital. If given the opportunity, most of us would prefer our final days be spent in our home, surrounded by loved ones. We would prefer to die a natural death at home without being a burden, financially or emotionally, on our families. Even when faced with a terminal illness, most would still prefer to spend their time at home, around familiar faces. But there is a discrepancy between what people say they want and where at the end of life and what actually occurs. Surveys show that an overwhelming number feel it is important to put their wishes about end-of-life care in writing; however, less than 25% have actually done so. More than half say they have not talked with a loved one about their wishes. I want to encourage you to put a plan in place. The single most important thing you can do is to talk to your loved ones and physicians, and put your wishes in writing. written plan helps you have a say if you are unable to speak for yourself should you face a healthcare crises. An advance directive, which should be filled out by any adult regardless of ones health status, provides a broad outline of a persons wishes relating to end-of-life care. It allows an individual to appoint a health care proxy the person they want to speak on their behalf if they cannot. These written instructions/wishes could have a profound impact on where one will spend their final days.

The business, located just west of Havana at 200 Coca Cola Avenue, will combined a dog-friendly bed and breakfast with various facilities fit for weddings, parties, conventions, and meetings. According to owner and proprietor Lynn Badger, many of the businesss buildings are historic structures, which have been moved to the grounds from their original sites within the region. The bed and breakfast section of the business currently has four rooms. According to Badger, a fifth will soon be finished. It is currently under construction inside an old general store moved to White Dog from Mexico Beach. Badger decorated each of the rooms herself, a process she said she enjoyed. The proprietor self-defined her design sensibility as eclectic. Each room has a different Florida-centric theme, with corresponding art and furniture. Badger also holds a specific affinity for 19thcentury French pieces. These are integrated among the domestic dcor. Little by little, slowly but surely, over seven years, Ive been working on the place, said Badger. The properties original home has been retro-fit and repurposed over the years. Badger said she is working toward returning the structure to its original 1890s form. The house is typical of many old southern homes in its large porch and wide breeze-way that allows air to flow unimpeded from the front the back of the structure. The house is atypical, however, in at least two other features. The house is frame but the interior walls are brick, a feature Badger said is much more common among Louisiana architecture of the same period. Furthermore, the top of the breezeway is an arch, curing along the length of the passage. Badger said she has never seen this feature in another home. Badger said the grounds were once known for their wildflowers but when a previous owner mowed the meadows too regularly, too few of the flowers managed to pollinate and reproduce. This nearly wiped away the once-colorful fields. Badger said she invested a couple hundred dollars and re-sawing the meadows with wildflower seeds. And she mows just once a year in January. I grew up in the country, said the owner. I wanted my next business to be in the country. Badger, whose most recent business was an urban dog park in Jacksonville, said she wanted a place where she and her three dogs, all American Eskimos, could be comfortable. The grounds include a fenced 4acre area for dogs to run and play. This area includes a farm pond in which the visiting dogs can play. Badger said her entire operation may employee two or three people aside from herself. Its not like when it was a restaurant, said Badger. I think they may have had 50 people working here. But this doesnt trouble Badger, who explains she pursued the business for the lifestyle it would allow her and her pets. At some point, I like to go on to my next project, said Badger. The only way Id ever get my money back is by selling it. I didnt do this to make money. If Id done this for money, Id be a very a foolish person.

Love, Mom, Dad, Big Sister, Granny, Auntis, Uncles, Cousins and Friends 000I7T6 Congratulations to all of the 2014 Graduates! From: Linda Lee Jones and JB 000I7MW Congratulations TaVonna Bell May God Continue to Bless You. We Are So Proud of You. From Mom, Torriah, Mylee & Demetric 000I81XCongratulations Meaghan,THE FUTURE BELONGS TO THOSE WHO BELIEVE IN THE BEAUTY OF THEIR DREAMS.ELEANOR ROOSEVELTWith Much Love, Your Family Graduates, many of you may view graduation as an ending. However, it is really the beginning of a new chapter and new adventures. Armed with all that you have learned from your family, friends and teachers, you will commence on your true journey into adult life. During the past 12 years of your formal education, much effort has been placed into the learning you have received from books, and it is my hope that in the years ahead your book learning will be immensely intensified. However, it is also my wish that you will remember to take time to educate your heart, because so many adult decisions and choices succeed and fail based on the tenuous balance between well-educated minds and well-educated hearts. Every day will bring you choices to make that will have sustaining effects on your life and the lives of your love ones. As choices present themselves, I encourage you to follow the advice of Max Lucado: Choose love rather than hate because no occasion justifies hatred, and no injustice warrants bitterness. Choose joy over cynicism by inviting goodness into every circumstance. Choose peace and live forgiveness. Choose patience and overlook the inconveniences of the world. Choose kindness; even for those who are unkind to you. Choose goodness by remembering that you should go without a dollar before you take a dishonest one; be overlooked before you boast; and confess before you accuse. Choose faithfulness by keeping your promises and by living your life so that your associates will not question your word; your spouse will not question your love; and your children will never fear their parent. Choose gentleness for nothing is won by force. If you raise your voice, let it be in praise. If you make demands, let them be made upon yourself. Finally, choose self-control, for in life it is truly only yourself that you can control. Love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control are the fruits of a well-educated heart. As you commence on this new journey, remember that it is the well-educated heart that will allow you to enjoy the labors of your welleducated mind. You are a product of the Gadsden County Public School District. As superintendent and on behalf of the entire school district, I wish you the best with all your life endeavors. Sincerely,Reginald C. James, Superintendent Gadsden County Public School District Superintendents message to the Class of 2014 INSIDE: SENIOR CLASS PICTURES Meaghan Sapp, daughter of Emanuel and Angela Sapp, earned the position of valedictorian at East Gadsden High School.

The average cost for an in-state public college is $22,261, and a moderate budget for a private college averaged $43,289 for the 2012 academic year; for elite schools, were talking about three times the cost of your local state school, says Stewart, a spokesperson for College Works Painting, (www.collegeworks.com), which provides practical and life-changing business experience for college students who have shown potential for success. Interns operate their own housepainting business with hands-on guidance from mentors. Making matters worse, adults in their 30s have 21 percent less net worth than 30somethings 30 years ago, according to a new Urban Institute report. More students are being saddled with long-term debt while getting less value for their education, Stewart says. Because of the difficulty recent college grads are having finding jobs in todays tough economy; todays students may have even less worth in their 30s than 30-somethings today. To add value to their professional career, Stewart encourages students to seek outside-the-box avenues for increasing their career stock while in college. Running a business is a great way to do that; he explains why. Employers love Why college students should also run a business See BIZ / Page B5

The digital age has introduced adult predators and other online hazards, and body-altering decorating such as tattoos and piercings are popular temptations, said James G. Wellborn, a clinical psychologist with 18 years of experience working with parents and teens. The teenage years are unlike any other in a persons life its a unique in-between period from childhood to adulthood, and its helpful to remember that problems during this time are actually normal,said Wellborn, author of the new book Raising Teens in the 21st Century: A Practical Guide to Effective Parenting,(www.drjameswellborn.com). But teens still require guidance, encouragement and good ideas to see them through to adulthood. A universally admired trait, spanning all cultures, religion and philosophy, is compassion. A truly compassionate teen will inevitably have a host of other positive qualities, Wellborn said, including patience, understanding, sensitivity, tolerance, intuition and more. He said parents can encourage compassion in the following ways: Model it: Compassion is largely learned, so be aware of how you act around your children. How did you respond to the request for money from that panhandler on the street? What comment did you make behind his back, in the presence of your kid? What did you say about that idiot driver who just cut you off in traffic? Your teens are watching and listening. Notice it: Point out examples of compassion that occur around you. It comes in many forms. Relevant to our daily lives are the people who quietly, and without recognition, help others in need, including volunteers of all types. Make a game of identifying instances of compassionate deeds youve witnessed. Teach it: Compassion has to be taught, so be prepared to provide direct instruction on how your teen needs to think and act in order to develop that quality. One important component is empathy. If your teens cant see things from anothers perspective, it is difficult for them to appreciate what that person is going through. Help them learn to walk a mile in their shoes. Anticipate it: Character can be fostered by projecting moral strength into their future. In this way, you will be subtly shaping the adult they are working to become. Say things like: By the time youre an adult, you will be such a person of strong character. Thatll be really cool. Guilt it: A personal value system serves as a means of accountability to oneself (and your family and community). This begins with the value system parents promote in their kids. If they fulfill the promise of personal values it is a source of justifiable pride. Violating personal values should result in guilt for not doing whats right and shame for letting other people down. Parents need to help their kids along with this. Repeat it: Once is not enough when it comes to character. Find every opportunity to work it into the conversation. Using all of the strategies mentioned above, you will be able to work character issues into every possible situation in a remarkably diverse number of ways. You need to have mentioned character so often at least once every couple of days and in so many different forms that they are sick of hearing about it by the time they graduate from Obituaries: 5 p.m. Friday prior to the desired publication date.

Jacob Williams, nephew of Thomas and Stormie Doyle, ranked as Tallavana Christians salutatorian with an unweighted GPA of 3.7. Williams said his experience at Tallavana has shaped him. You dont just learn academics,said Williams, speaking about his time at Tallavana Christian. You learn how to live life. Thats one thing Im going to take with me. It wasnt part of the curriculum. Williams said he plans on attending Tallahassee Community College for two years and then transferring to Florida State University for his second two years. He would like to study athletic training, aiming to work on a teams staff after his degree. Hopefully Ill get picked up by a pro team and get out of my state, said Williams. Williams said, however, he will gladly go wherever a professional opportunity might present itself, near or far from home.

A college degree is the minimum qualification employers are seeking. What hiring managers are looking for is that something extra when reviewing a stack of qualified resumes. At the heart of the economy is innovation; its the difference between simply existing in a market, and thriving in one. Employers know they need people with creativity and gumption for innovation.Real-world management of time and money. College is a time when young adults learn to live autonomously. Its the rare student, however, who learns to manage his or her own affairs and the most precious resources in the business world time and money. Managing employees, driving sales, developing specific skills for a real market and building strong customer relationships are best learned with hands-on experience.Learn where they need help. What do you do well and where do you need help? The best way to know with any certainty is through experience. Running a business while attending college allows students to circle back to their education and focus on their trouble areas by adjusting their curriculum in future semester. Develop meaningful bonds. One of the most meaningful aspects of the college experience is the relationships students develop with each other, which often have professional consequences after college. Enlisting the help of fellow students for a common business purpose tends to have a powerful bonding effect. Immediate ROI finding phenomenal success. Most students who run a business during college will not prove to be the next Steve Jobs, Mark Zuckerburg or David Geffen, which is precisely why students should not drop out of college like those pioneers did. However, a student doesnt have to be the next Zuckerburg to experience amazing success as an entrepreneur. College Hunks Moving Junk is just one recent example that began in an entrepreneurial student mind. Matt Stewart cofounded National Services Group, which operates College Works Painting, SMJJ Investments and Empire Community Construction. Under the executive teams leadership, NSG has grown from a small Southern California business into a national leader in two industries and has been recognized as an entrepreneurial leader by Ernst & Young, the Orange County Business Journal, Inc., Entrepreneur and hundreds of other periodicals. Stewart has received a several awards, including the Excellence in Entrepreneurship Award from the Orange County Business Journal; was named under 40; and he has twice been a finalist for the Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of The Year Award.

Id be a totally different person if I had not gone to Munroe. Kelleher said he plans to attend Florida State University,where he would like to study chemical engineering. Rather than start in the fall, however, Kelleher is opting to begin his studies at FSU this June. He said this way he will satisfy an elective or humanities credit before the regular school year even begins. After his time at FSU, Kelleher said he thinks he might want to continue with graduate school or begin working in a laboratory setting where he feels at home. RFM SCHEDULE BACCALAUREATE: 6 p .m.

Tips to spend less on gas from www.fueleconomy.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 optimal fuel economy at a different speed (or range of speeds), gas mileage usually decreases rapidly at speeds above 60 mph. You can assume that each 5 mph you drive over 60 mph is like paying an additional $0.30 per gallon for gas. Observing the speed limit is also safer. Remove excess weight Avoid keeping unnecessary items in your vehicle, especially heavy ones. An extra 100 pounds in your vehicle could reduce your MPG by up to 2 percent. The reduction is based on the percentage of extra weight relative to the vehicles weight and affects smaller vehicles more than larger ones. Combine errands Several short trips taken from a cold start can use twice as much fuel as one trip covering the same distance when the engine is warm. Avoid excessive idling Idling can use a quarter to a half gallon of fuel per hour, depending on engine size and air conditioner (AC) use. Gas-saving tips Tips for becoming an intellectual maverick No matter how well our lives may be going, many of us seem to be at our wits end when it comes to attaining that next level of success, but there is a solution to this challenge, says worldtraveling entrepreneur Julian Pencilliah. How does one start this process? Become a student of your own history and become an intellectual maverick, says Pencilliah, who reviews the attributes that must be developed to make progress possible. Irrevocably change your world. Piece together an ever-fuller understanding of yourself with the intention of reinventing yourself a thousand-fold. We should always aim toward exponential achievements, with the wisdom of knowing we are not chasing the achievement, but rather chasing the consciousness of who we need to become in order to materialize our success. Think with sophistication. This is your capacity to become more strategic in your approach to life. This simply means you need to become more process-oriented, rather than goal-oriented. Intelligence is knowing whats required of you. Sophisticated thinking is the process of making successful decisions over a lifetime. Exceed probability amplitudes. Achieving success in any arena of your life is framed within your ability to eliminate innate weaknesses and biases. History tells us not all greats have offthe-chart IQs, nor are they born with limitless freedom. In fact, its the triumph over less-than-favorable circumstances and a determination to achieve that often builds the character necessary for success. Great individuals set out to achieve outstanding results and make their decisions within intellectual criteria. All the greats have engaged a higher impulse, a higher bandwidth and an inherent strength. Smile with radiance. Life is beauty in every direction, but we are often unable to see it if we are too consumed with our lives. The simple truth is that you can touch more of the beauty of life only by touching your own beauty. If you look through the lens of love, gratitude and contribution, then you will be able to see and touch more of the infinite beauty that makes life on Earth a heaven. Learn to smile like sunshine every day and brighten up your world. Get lucky. I would love to tell you that your destiny is written in the stars, but it is actually written within the confines of your interpretation of life, Pencilliah says. Luck has more to do with self-engagement than any random twist of fate. Be bold and champion your life to exceed the probability amplitude of any statistic of luck. Above all, I live by three simple words: compassion, love and gratitude, Pencilliah says. We need to act on these three words daily. Doing so will irrevocably change your world.
