THURSDAY, MAY22, 2014 WWW.GADCOTIMES.COM VOLUME113/ISSUE21 50 22 PAGES, 1 SECTIONArt Center set to sizzle/A21 ROBERT ALLENTimes Reporter The Quincy City Commission met May 13 for their first regular meeting since the April 29 election when Daniel McMillan began representing District Five. The discussion included the approval of new telecommunications services, the approval of a new traffic signal agreement with the state and the presentation of the Quincy Fire Departments quarterly report. The telecommunications agreement with Quincy Telephone Company or TDS was available at three different rates and periods. The company offered the city a monthby-month contract for $3,277.25 a month, an annual contract for $2677.25 a month and a three-year contract for 2,167.25 a month. The city staff recommended the three-year contract. Commissioner Micah Brown motioned to approve it. Dowdell seconded the motion. It passed unanimously. According to the commissions agenda, the city entered into an agreement with Florida Department of Transportation, or FDOT, in September 2002. The agreement made the city responsible for the operation and maintenance of traffic lights at 13 intersections along state roads. In exchange for this service, per the agreement, the state has annually paid the city, increasing the sum by 3 percent each year Mike Wade, interim city manager, said FDOT is now purposing an altered agreement and it would expand the citys responsibilities without increasing compensation. The new agreement would include maintenance of the structures on which the signals are mounted. According to the commissions agenda, simply painting one of these structures can cost $10,000. Wade recommended the commissioners not approve the new contract. Wade and City Attorney John Grant also said it was their understanding that not signing the new contract would constitute a continuation of the current contract, which is bound by the life of the traffic signals rather than any calendar dates. I would like to make sure that the city of Quincy makes sure that this is a united stance among other cities that we dont just go out there and say, Yeah, were not going to sign the agreement, and all these other cities that weve talked to say theyre not going to sign it and were the only one that didnt sign it, said Commissioner Andy Gay, explaining he wouldnt agree to not sign the new contract until he was confident of other cities intentions. I want to make sure that this is an organized, united protest of this increase.

The times and dates of these check points will vary depending upon weather, manpower and safety conditions. Recognizing the danger presented to the public by defective vehicle equipment, deputies will concentrate their efforts on vehicles being operated with defects such as bad brakes, worn tires and defective lighting equipment. In addition, DUI Enforcement will be directed to drivers who insist on driving impaired. The Gadsden County Sheriffs Office has found these checkpoints to be an effective means of enforcing the equipment and driver license laws of Florida while ensuring the protection of all motorists.RoadsI-10 Quincy, Midway, Chattahoochee and Greensboro exits, Hwy 90 East and West of Midway to Chattahoochee, Hwy 12 East and West to Greensboro and Havana, Hwy 27 North and South of Havana, Hwy 65 North and South, Hwy 267 North and South, Brickyard Rd., Providence Rd., Lakeview Point Rd., Cook Landing Rd., Flat Creek Rd., Sycamore Rd., Sawdust Rd., Bonnie Hill Rd., Lincoln Drive, Hardaway Hwy, Kemp Road, Atlanta St., Concord Rd., Rustling Pine and Solomon Dairy Rd., Havana 4th Street and 16th Avenue. BoCC ponders economic path ROBERT ALLENTimes ReporterThe Gadsden County Commission met May 20 for a joint workshop with the Gadsden County Development Council on May 20. Beth Kirkland, executive director of Gadsden Countys development council, shared information for more than an hour, including discussion of timber products and rail transportation. Kirkland addressed market-driven growth, which she labeled a highly recognizable and sought-after business climate. In pursuit of this climate, the Gadsden County Development Council has established partnerships with the Gadsden County Tourism Development Council, Riverway South, Career Source Capital Region, Opportunity Florida, Florida Great Northwest and Enterprise Florida Stakeholders Council. At the end of the day, we want to work in teams, Kirkland said, emphasizing the importance of cooperation or at least the perception of it. Kirkland said when the county has a chance to host a prospective investor, they need to temporarily put away differences and appear as harmonious as possible. I think youve hit on just about every point that needs touched on to get us started, said Commissioner Sherrie Taylor after Kirkland finished her presentation. My concern is that GCDC is where it needs to be. Taylor said Gov. Rick Scott has deliberately fostered an economic environment conducive to business development. When resulting Commissioners acknowledge their role in reversing current plight ROBERT ALLENTimes ReporterThe Gadsden County Chamber of Commerce hosted their first Grow Gadsden meeting May 15 at the University of Floridas research center south of Quincy. These meetings will provide a more specialized forum for supporting local business development in agricultural fields. We want to have a brand of Gadsden agriculture, said David Gardner, executive director of Gadsden Countys Chamber of Commerce, acknowledging the areas rich history in growing. Were trying to bring it back. The first Grow Gadsden meeting concerned two distinct but related initiatives: courses designed for local farmers interesting in beginning or expanding agricultural businesses and an incubator program designed to foster partnerships between private parties, enabling new farms to emerge where before, independently, they might not have been able. Many of us who do farm need another job to support our farming habit, said Nick Comerford of the University of Florida, explaining that the new programs will help build more lucrative farming operations that can be initiated by growers without the same start-up capital currently required to more independently begin a farm. The incubating initiative will help broker functional agreements between farmers without sufficient land and/or machinery with Chamber launches ag initiative See AG/ Page A2 Havana good time ROBERT ALLENTimes ReporterArtists and vendors lined the streets of Havana beginning at 8 a.m. on May 17 for the citys Havana Day Festival. By 10 a.m. the side streets were busy with families as they perused through the merchants wares and the vendors fares. Robert Derwick was one of the artists visiting the festival. He brought along a display of his sea-inspired glass art. His wife Tammy Derwicks artwork was also present. She primarily depicts mermaid figures, rendered in pencil or watercolor. I found out about the festival and I wanted to come out, enjoy the day, and sell my art work, said the glass artist. Derwick, who has been doing class work for 40 years, said his art is all original. He indicated high hopes for the day. It can only get better from here, right? said Derwick. Weve got some music coming. Cold beers right over there, close by. Its a nice day to be in Havana. The Gadsden County Humane Society occupied a central location at the street festival. They brought along several excited dogs and a few curious puppies for the big day. Were trying to raise awareness that Gadsden County Humane Society exists, said Michele Vaught, president of the organization. Were the only animal rescue group here in Festival pulls crowd Bone carver Thorn Riley, shown here, displayed his work as a Havana Day vendor.

Midway, GCSO and Internet cafs remain FDLE concernsTwo Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE)investigations in Gadsden County remain active.An FDLE spokesman reconfirmed an investigation into alleged misconduct by Gadsden County Sheriffs Office employees remains active is ongoing. No new developments, if they have occurred, can be publicized by FDLE at this time. Two GCSO investigators remain on unpaid leave pending the outcome of the investigation.Separately, the initial investigation that triggered a joint FBI and FDLE raid of Midway City Hall in mid-August remains active after more than eight months. FDLE is also proceeding with the investigation of possible breaches in state law at Internet cafs in Havana and Quincy. The investigation, however, is being led by the State Attorneys office. According to an FDLE spokesperson, the attorneys office represents the primary agency handling the case.U.S. 90 lane closures continueThe westbound outside lane of U.S. 90 from New Bethel AME Church to Hilltop Drive in Gadsden County will be closed from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. through Saturday, May 24, to allow trucks to enter and exit the Quincy Bypass project site. Flaggers will be on State Road (S.R.) 12 to assist motorists through the work zone during this time. The speed limit on U.S. 90 is 45 mph; violations double when workers are present. Drivers are cautioned to use extra care when traveling through the construction zones on U.S. 90 and on S.R. 12. All U.S. 90 traffic between Quincy and Midway has been transitioned to a single lane in each direction on the westbound roadway at the Little River and Hurricane Creek bridges. This traffic shift will allow crews to remove and construct the new eastbound bridge. This traffic pattern will remain in effect until July 2014. Drivers are reminded that travel lanes are reduced to 11 feet in width through the work zone. Oversized and permitted vehicles should seek alternate routes. Construction activities are weather-dependent and may be delayed or rescheduled in the event of inclement weather. For more Quincy By-Pass project information visit www.quincybypass.com.

The particulars of ensuing partnership, regarding everything from crop selection to risk sharing, will be private business agreements. The research center will serve as a source of professional direction not a dictating authority. Were going to leave the horse in the water but were not going to be responsible for making it drink, Josh Freeman said, characterizing the autonomy the program will allow members. According to Gardner, the Quincy Piggly Wiggly has already made a commitment to stock local produce grown by farmers involved with the new initiatives. Meanwhile, Freeman, a UF professor said the first series of classes for the general public will provide a broad overview of production from seed to harvest. He also said more specialized courses will follow the first general courses, which begins this October. For information, contact the Gadsden County Chamber of Commerce at 850-627-9231. AGContinued from Page A1 Gadsden County, and we dont get any state or local funding. Later in the afternoon and into the evening, the organization organized a battleof-the-bands-style show featuring several local groups. According to Vaught, the humane societys fundraising goal for the show was $10,000. Basically that is going to go to pay our vet bills, said Vaught, and of course have a little left over for upcoming vet bills. Many of the animals the society brought along were looking for permanent homes which is especially critical for the organization, according to Vaught, because they rely strictly on foster homes in the meanwhile rather than any shelter facility. Thorn Riley, a bone carver, jewelry maker and leather worker, was another artisan who appeared at the festival. He described his work as mostly Native American influenced. I hand carve all the bone pieces every piece of bone on every piece of jewelry, said Thorn. The carver, who has lived all over the South, shared some of the glass workers good feelings: Im hoping to sell out.

CountyBRIEFS From staff reports opportunities appear in Gadsden, Taylor said she wants the development council to be in a position to effectively cultivate them. We need to make ourselves appealing so we can make your job easier, Taylor said to Kirkland. Taylor also wants to see examples of the councils methodology in action. Im interested primarily in seeing where this has worked, she said. Commissioner Brenda Holt also voiced concerns about offering a sufficiently enticing environment for development. I keep hearing one thing: permitting zoning. said Holt. If I found a piece of property I find interesting, Im going to ask how hard am I going to have to fight to get in there. Holt said she didnt want the county to be an impediment for plans that might work if county rules didnt hamper the companys interest in development. We need to look at our zoning to make sure we can move when everyone else moves, said Holt, and we need to do whatever we need to do whether its an election year or not. Commissioner Doug Croley offered further qualms about the councils direction. I dont like to get paralysis from analysis, he said. This all sounds very bureaucratic, to put it bluntly. I want to move fast. Croley said the councils progress sounded like a hunt for distant and rare elephants while there are plenty of local and available squirrels for the taking. I want to see a more proactive marketing effort done rather than relying on the state of Florida, said Croley. Commissioner Gene Morgan offered similar concerns. I am a proponent of the private sector when it comes to economic development and Im curious to know how that fits in, he said. Morgan raised other questions about assessing time and progress. I just want to be able to measure our results, he said. Its not an easy thing to do but its a simple thing to do. Commissioner Erik Hinson remained optimistic. In all fairness to Ms. Kirkland, he said, sometimes its good to have faith. PATHContinued from Page A1

Whats all that hand waving going on? Sign language! If youre curious to learn how to talk with your hands and listen with your eyes, heres a free opportunity to give it a try. The Gadsden County Public Library System is happy to sponsor American Sign Language workshops on Tuesday evenings at the McGill Library in Quincy. Prospective new students of all ages are welcome to come at 5:30 p.m. to watch a beginners group learn the basics, such as alphabet letters, simple words and phrases. The main workshop continues from 6 to 8 p.m. with a large group of regulars who have been faithfully attending classes since last year. You can stay to observe and pick up some of the hand lingo, then sign up for a whole new beginners group starting June 3. Sign language instructor Nivya Hill moved to Gadsden County to help the deaf community here and sign at local churches. She is eager to teach these skills to others who may be interested. Nivya generously donated a starter collection of sign language materials to the library, many of which include Bible stories. You might be surprised to know there are thousands of residents in Gadsden County who have some degree of hearing impairment. While exact numbers are hard to track due to varying definitions of deafness, we do know there are around 3 million Floridians with hearing loss, more than 16 percent of the population. Many teenagers are now suffering from noise-induced hearing loss and war veterans are returning home with ear injuries. For those who are totally deaf, their only means of communicating is through sign language. Imagine how nice it would be for them to have a neighbor or new friend with whom to chat. Since public demand for learning sign language has surged, the library expanded its resources by acquiring 75 books and DVDs on the techniques of American Sign Language to loan. Search the collection of titles online at www.gcpls.org. Here are a few examples of new materials you can now borrow: American Sign Language for Kids (DVD) Brainy Baby Talking Hands: Discovering Sign Language (DVD) Common Expressions in American Sign Language (DVD) E-Z American Sign Language by David Stewart The Everything Sign Language Book by Irene Duke Signing at Church by Jane Schneider These free workshops are open to Gadsden County residents of any age. Some of the youngest signers pick it up in a flash, and the seasoned learners prove youre never too old to try something new. So ditch the TV sitcoms Tuesday night and head down to the library to stretch your visual vocabulary. The benefit will be making new meaningful acquaintances with those living in a silent world.

KENT D. SHIFFERD PeaceVoiceThe latest border changes in Ukraine are just another replay of too many past scenarios: the breakup of former Yugoslavia, East Timor, Chechnya, the Sudetenland Crisis of the 1930s, and the centuries-long back and forth of the Alsace and Lorraine between France and Germany. If we could base the resolution of these types of conflict on recognizing the five principles outlined here, we could greatly reduce the dangers of civil and interstate war. 1. All national borders change over time. Very few national borders are more than 200 years old, and many are far more recent. Moreover, many current borders were arbitrarily imposed, dividing and separating ethnic and religious populations while combining them with others whose ways they did not understand and so creating conditions for long-term conflict. The pressure to change borders will always be with us. 2. No borders should change by force, fraud or external intrigue. While borders need to be changeable, it should and can be done peacefully and justly. 3. Self-determination for minorities is a universal right. All religious, tribal and ethnic groups have a right of self-determination, a right that can be recognized in every state constitution with certain restrictions including: The right to an internationally monitored vote for change to either an autonomous region, independence, or merging with another state, under certain conditions including the following: in the case of a vote to withdraw, the value of resources and infrastructure in the region withdrawing must be compensated to the remaining population by the group that is withdrawing or the nation with which they are merging. This can be done over time. Since no new boundaries can ever encompass every member of the minority, those left within the old state must be given the right to voluntarily cross over into the new polity and to be compensated for property left behind. 4. Non-imposition of values and beliefs. For those who remain behind, and indeed for all peoples, it must be recognized that trying to impose values on others does not work, that such conversions are almost never authentic, and that the only way to spread a groups own beliefs is to live so that your example is inviting. Freedom to worship, dress and move about must be guaranteed and all forms of discrimination eschewed. 5. Full and free flow of information across borders. Seemingly self-evident, but good decisions cannot be taken without full access to and by news sources, Internet, cell-phone communications, etc. The self-styled realists will say this is nave and they will ask, How could this be enforced? But thats the wrong question. You cant impose such things by force. The leaders of NATO would like to impose a rollback on Russias take-over of the Crimea but for all its saber rattling and moving warplanes closer to the borders, its impotent; unless it wants to start World War III of course, which the rest of humanity definitely does not want. What the realists have got for us for far too long is a world of war and violence. Genuine, lasting common security has always eluded them. So this revolution needs to be bottom up, person-to-person, and it will take a long time. We are very used to the old, fruitless ways of militarism and war, but they are not inevitable; they are not human nature. They are a choice, and we common folk can make a different choice that will compel governments to follow. Its time to launch a worldwide campaign to manage our border conflicts on the basis of these principles and move ourselves and our children closer to a world without war. This is the new, and the true realism.

A4THEGADSDENCOUNTYTIMES THURSDAY, MAY22, 2014 WWW.GADCOTIMES.COMCome on outside; Ill duke it out with you, the tall man of at least 65, invited me. Yeah, right, like Im going to fight with you at this time and place, I responded quietly and in a surprisingly composed manner. Last week Judy and I drove over to Mt. Dora, about 20 miles east of Leesburg, to collect some money from the sale of my Seiko watch that finally been sold after I left it on consignment for a few months. It couldnt have been a more beautiful day in early May. What had made the day all the more enjoyable was that it was the first day Judy had felt well enough to take a ride after her latest surgery. Mt. Dora reminded us of Highlands, N.C., a place we used to visit when we lived in western North Carolina. Highlands was nestled on a plateau in the southern Appalachian Mountains, within the Nantahala National Forest. Even though we thought most of the snowbirds had already migrated back to the North, the little town of Mt. Dora was still crowded, and the shops and stores were filled with the usual tourists who frequent this lovely town. We had lunch at a place that featured a few tables outside. The burgers were great although quite expensive. Even though our waitress was a little curt and too abrupt in manner and presentation, we overlooked it and enjoyed our meal. We were having a good time; we didnt have to worry about the dog as we had left him at home. However, due to the nature of Judys recent kidney surgery, she had to make frequent trips to the ladies room. I was becoming a little anxious and wanted to take care of transacting our business at the consignment shop quickly and driving her home to where she could relax and not worry about how soon it would be until she needed to use the facilities again. When we arrived at the shop, across the street from the restaurant we had just frequented, we found a sign taped to the door: Reopen at 2 p.m. Judy and I stood at the base of three or four steps leading into the establishment. At 2:02 a woman excused herself and climbed the stairs, brushing gently against us, and unlocked the door. We walked in after her; another couple followed along behind us. The owner, a kind looking man, from India or Pakistan, presumably, suddenly appeared from a room alongside the far end of the counter and greeted us with a cordial good afternoon. Immediately the other woman, who had entered the shop behind Judy and me, walked hastily over to the counter. The shop owner waited on her without even looking our way. I was irritated. Judy and I had been first in line and first into the shop. My wife was in quite a bit of pain at this time, and I was becoming more anxious as the owner proceeded to go through a stack of paperwork he had in front of him while the other woman waited. I was standing next to Judy, who was seated along the wall facing the counter, and whispered, I think I may say something if this man spends much more time waiting on the other woman. Judy whispered back, Its OK; well just wait. Pardon me, sir, I interjected, Is this the way you usually run your business? My wife and I were here first, and you have ignored us. She does not feel well, and I would like to take her home. Oh, so sorry, the owner responded, and went right back to shuffling through the stack of orders in front of him. I added, My wife has a few rings she was going to let you examine for us; after this treatment we will be taking them elsewhere. So sorry, the shop owner replied. The other womans husband, who had been standing and looking out the window onto the street, walked over to where I had been standing. He was a large man and very tall. He then proceeded to walk completely around me, all the while staring straight down at me. The man stood very close to me and quietly asked, How are you? Im fine; how are you?I replied. Next he said, Whats your problem? I replied, My problem, sir, is that in this country whats right is right. Id like to bring my sick wife home as soon as possible. If you were a gentleman youd be more sympathetic, ask your wife to wait a minute and allow my wife her turn. Im also a Christian man and believe in doing the right thing in situations such as this one. He continued to eye me up and down and all over, shaking his head slowly all the while. Lets go outside and Ill take you on. Yeah, come on, you Ill fight you. Youve got to be kidding, I replied. Come on, come on outside, the ugly man urged softly. In the next minute the proprietor beckoned to me, Heres your check, sir. I collected the check, and Judy and I walked out the door and crossed directly in front of the belligerent man. He kept beckoning to me, Come on, come on, you wanna duke it out? Lets go. I looked at him, shook my head, and Judy and I kept walking. I was hoping and almost praying the creep would not follow us. He did not. As we walked further away down the busy street, he continued shouting out ugly and vicious remarks: Get out of here, and dont come back. Dont you ever come back to this town, you hear?! He also included a few profanities in his tirade. I was thankful a major incident hadnt occurred, and that all turned out well. Judy and I have been fortunate to have been saved from incidents such as this one. There are just so many mean and uptight people walking around today one wants to avoid, at all costs. I was proud to have admitted publicly that I was a gentleman and a Christian and had acted in a dignified manner, even if it had almost cost me my head. Would I have loved to personally fight the man? You bet your bippy I would have! God bless you, and may you be saved from incidents such as the one Judy and I recently experienced in Mt. Dora.

The callers are asking victims for personal information. DBPR has received complaints from victims who have reported receiving calls from people claiming to be DBPR employees. The scammers are requesting personal information from individuals, which is unusual activity for a DBPR employee. DBPR has confirmed the phone calls are in no way connected with the department or its regulatory authority. If a consumer receives a call from someone claiming to be a DBPR employee who is asking for personal information, they should not provide any personal or financial information. A consumer safety tip is to ask the caller to return the phone call to verify their authority and call the DBPR Customer Contact Center at 850-487-1395. If the person calling claims to be a telemarketer, consumers may report the call to the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services at 1-800-HELP-FLA (1-800-435-7352) or at www.freshfromflorida.com/.

KEVIN CONCANNON USDA Under Secretary for Food, Nutrition and Consumer Services As a child, I always looked forward to the carefree joy of summertime. I remember the long days of playing outside at a nearby park until I needed to come home for lunch. Unfortunately, many of our nations children do not experience the simple joys of summer. In fact, far too many are left worrying where their next breakfast or lunch will come from when schools are dismissed for summer break. During the school year, about 31 million American children receive school meals through the National School Lunch Program and School Breakfast Program every day. About 21 million of those children receiveWWW.GADCOTIMES.COMTHEGADSDENCOUNTYTIMES THURSDAY, MAY22, 2014 A5 Education Do you know of a child who loves art?

Commissioner Keith Dowdell motioned to table the topic for the purpose of allowing Wade more time to confirm the type of united front Gay said he wanted. Gay seconded the motion. It passed unanimously. The fire department also presented their quarterly report, showing they received a hundred fewer calls this January, February and March than the corresponding timeperiod during the previous year. In a latter interview, Scott Haire, Quincys fire chief, said such variation is normal. Fire stats go up and down a lot, said Haire. We see a lot of fluctuation. The department was called out for five hazard calls while not dealing with a single one during this quarter last year. According to Hair these calls include problems like fuel spills or gas leaks. Haire also attributed this change to normal variation. He does, however, point out one important trend he has been monitoring: Weve had less injuries and deaths in the last few years, said Haire, pointing out a more long-term trend. The injuries are down. We havent had the injuries weve had in the past. WWW.GADCOTIMES.COMTHEGADSDENCOUNTYTIMES THURSDAY, MAY22, 2014 A7 000I2CK 000HXGE Expires 6/30/14.

This compares with the national average that has not moved in the last week to $3.62/g, according to gasoline price website GasBuddy.com. Including the change in gas prices in Tallahassee during the past week, prices yesterday were 23.6 cents per gallon higher than the same day one year ago and are unchanged versus a month ago. The national average has not moved during the last month and stands 5.0 cents per gallon lower than this day one year ago. The drop that we had observed in the national average weeks ago took a pause over the last week, said GasBuddy.com Senior Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan. Oil prices have perked back up, and some supply tightness across areas of the country helped propel wholesale gasoline prices higher last week, leading retail prices to hold steady instead of continuing to decline. The temporary stability in the national average will ebb over the next week or two, and gas prices will head down again as we approach Memorial Day. GasBuddy operates TallahasseeGasPrices.com and more than 250 similar websites that track gasoline prices at over 140,000 gasoline stations in the United States and Canada. In addition, GasBuddy offers a free smartphone app which has been downloaded over 25 million times to help motorists find the lowest gasoline prices in their area.

EVENTSContinued from Page A3 meals at a discounted rate or for free, based on their familys income. When summer rolls around, though, only about 3.5 million of these children participate in USDAs summer meals programs. That means millions of eligible low-income children are at risk of going hungry during the summer months. And we know that to thrive and reach their highest potential, children need good nutrition all year long. USDAs Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) is working to fill this hunger gap for children who qualify for free and reduced price meals during the school year. The program serves free healthy meals to eligible children ages 18 and under, and is made possible through the efforts of national, state, and local partners, including a cadre of energized volunteers. While USDA has worked to increase access to summer meals for low-income children for many years, SFSP began receiving priority attention in 2013. Last summer, USDA employed a new tactic of working with partners to deliver intensive, targeted technical assistance on SFSP in five states. The result was a historic increase in the number of meals served, nationwide 7 million more than the previous year! We hope to continue building on last years successes with our state and local partners in 2014, and move closer to closing the summer hunger gap. The key to success this year will be expanding the number of sites open for summer meals. We must spread the word to schools, parks and recreation departments, libraries, and faith and other community organizations across the nation; their participation is critical for the continued success of SFSP. The deadlines to become Summer Food Service Program sponsors vary by State, and begin as early as April 15. Program sponsors oversee and provide meals to summer sites. In return, USDA, through the States, reimburses program sponsors for the meals served to children. Im sure it comes as no surprise when I say that galvanizing hundreds of faith-based groups, civic groups, recreation centers, food banks, schools, other non-profit organizations, and volunteers takes time, effort and commitment on all sides. For any community that treasures its youth (and I havent met one that doesnt), we must organize now to fight hunger this summer. If you or your organization is interested in helping us reduce the risk of hunger among our nations youth, visit our website, www.summerfood.usd a.gov. The summer meals outreach toolkit includes sample outreach plans, templates, customizable flyers, door hangers, letters to parents, examples of site activities, best practices, and more. State representatives are also available to answer questions and facilitate sponsor enrollment and site registration. This year, lets work together to make sure every child in our great nation has a hunger-free summer. USCAContinued from Page A5 Shut up, Victoria! You dont know diddly-squat! Last Sunday I decided to visit a new church near Portland, Ore. I got the address and Terry, my husband, went out to the car and programmed it into our new GPS for me. I dont quite trust the thing yet. (Once it got me going in circles, and Id still be trying to get to my destination if I hadnt recognized the same barn, for the third time.) When going someplace new, I always back myself up with MapQuest. It said the church was an hour from my home and mostly freeway. I set off out of Woodland, Wash., and before Id gone two miles Victoria (thats the name I gave her) popped up in a breathy British accent, Take the next exit right. I want you to know, Terry is the one who picked Victoria out of the choice of voices, and quite frankly, I think he has a digital crush on her. She sounds like Marilyn Monroe if shed been raised in London. Take the next exit right? You idiot weve got 50 miles to go, I replied angrily. She ignored me! Turn right, she directed, her sensuous tone threatening to fog up the inside of my windows. No!! I shouted at the Brit stuck to my dashboard! I told you Terry had programmed the address into the contraption, but I didnt tell you why. OK, OK, I dont exactly know how to do it yet! I also dont know how to turn Victorias volume down or make her go away, especially while driving 70 miles per hour. I know I should have given myself a cushion of time to go to a new destination, but I didnt. So if Id taken the time to pull over and figure out how to shut her up, I would have been late to church. Consequently, I was stuck listening to her tell me to take the next right at every possible exit off I-5, for the next 52 miles all the way to the church! But something very interesting happened mid-trip. Because I had the Mapquest directions as backup, I knew that Victoria was wrong. Relentlessly wrong! So, I just tuned her out of my mind. When I got to the church I looked at the address Terry had programmed into the contraption. Instead of the city being Lake Oswego (a suburb of Portland) he had hit La Center (the small town right next to Woodland, Wash.) No wonder Victoria kept trying to get me off the freeway. She thought we were going to La Center. When I got settled and quiet in church, it struck me that Victoria was like one of those nagging worry thoughts that can try to take over our peace. We can forget that all is well and let those worry thoughts drag us down if we let them. But we dont have to let them. The next time Im worried about something, Im just going to say, Shut up Victoria, you dont know diddly-squat, and be about my happy business. Oh, and I am also going to get my GPS 101 lesson today and learn how to use Victoria for future trips. For more from Pam Young go to www.makeitfunanditwillgetdone.com.

Pam YoungMAKE IT FUN Reducing kids sun exposure lowers skin cancer risk later in life NAVNEET DHILLON, MDWith the warm weather and long days of summer finally here, people are spending more time outdoors. While many people are aware of the need to protect themselves from the sun, reducing childrens exposure to the suns harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays is especially important. In fact, teaching kids to be sun-safe now can benefit them for the rest of their lives. According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), childhood sunburns are a risk factor for skin cancer. The Skin Cancer Foundation, a non-profit devoted to skin cancer education and prevention, offers a stark warning: suffering one or more blistering sunburns in childhood or adolescence more than doubles a persons chances of developing potentially-deadly melanoma later in life. But although skin cancer can be deadly, it is also highly preventable. There are several simple things you can do to reduce your childrens exposure to damaging UV radiation while still allowing them to enjoy the summer weather. Play in the shade: The suns UV rays are most intense between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. Remind kids to play or at least take breaks in shaded areas in order to limit UV exposure. Getting out of the sun can also reduce their risk of heat illness. Sun screen: Teach children to apply 1 ounce (about the size of a golf ball) of sunscreen to all exposed areas 30 minutes before outdoor activities. Teach them to cover areas such as the back of their ears and neck, and the tops of their feet and hands. Use a broad-spectrum sunscreen that protects against both UVA and UVB rays, with an SPF of 30 or higher. Reapply every two hours and especially after swimming or sweating. Sun-safe swimwear: Look for bathing suits that cover more skin swim shirts, one-piece suits and long trunks come in fashionable colors and styles for both boys and girls. Many types of swimwear are now rated with an ultraviolet protection factor (UPF); the higher the UPF, the more protection they provide. Ban the tan: Like pink or burned skin, a tan is a sign of DNA damage to skin cells, a risk factor for developing skin cancer. Remind teens especially that tanning whether laying out in the sun or using a tanning bed increases skin cancer risk and also causes wrinkles and other skin blemishes. Cover up: While tightly woven clothes provide the best protection against UV rays, wearing a Tshirt in the pool and outdoors provides more protection than wearing no shirt (for boys) or a two-piece bathing suit (for girls). Wide-brimmed hats and sunglasses also help protect sensitive skin on the neck, face and around the eyes (for boys, a baseball cap is still better than no hat at all). Be aware: A light cloud covering often doesnt completely block UV rays, it may only diffuse them; its still possible to get sunburned on a cloudy day. In addition, concrete, sand and water can all reflect the suns rays so reapply sunscreen any time youre outdoors during peak hours. Whats important to remember is the leading risk factor for skin cancer is exposure to UV rays, whether from the sun or a tanning bed. The more exposure you have, the higher your risk. And because its virtually impossible to go through life with no sun exposure, we all have some level of risk. Fortunately, there are several ways to lower your risk by reducing your exposure to the suns harmful rays. Children especially will benefit from learning how to protect their skin. Most important, these simple actions can be practiced beyond childhood into adulthood, enhancing sun safety and reducing skin cancer risk at any age.

Photo submitted Ready for RN career Melinda Myers Spring is here and the garden centers are filled with beautiful plants. Many of us are making our way to one or more of our favorite garden shops. We leave with a car full of beautiful flowers and healthy vegetables with hopes of a bountiful harvest. But before that first plant goes into the ground, make sure your soil is properly prepared. Though not the most glamorous part of gardening, it is the first and most important step in creating a beautiful and productive garden. Start by adding some compost, aged manure or a garden soil labeled for flowers and vegetables to this years shopping list. Youll need about two 2-cubic-ft bags of soil additive to cover 25 square feet of garden 2 inches deep. Calculate your garden size by measuring the length times the width, so you are sure to purchase all you need. Once the car is unloaded the fun begins. Work the soil when it is moist, but not wet. A simple test can help with this. Grab a handful of soil and gently squeeze. Then gently tap it with your finger. If it breaks into smaller pieces, it is ready to work. If it stays in a wet ball, wait for the soil to dry slightly before digging in. Otherwise you will compact the soil, reduce drainage and create clods and crusty soil that youll be fighting all season long. Start by digging several inches of compost, aged manure, or a product like Schultz garden soil for flowers and vegetables into the top 12 inches of soil. These materials improve drainage in heavy clay soils and increase water-holding ability in sandy soils. Spread the organic matter over the soil surface of the garden bed. Use a shovel or Rototiller to blend the organic matter into the soil. Rake the area smooth and level or make a slight crown in the middle of the bed. Crowning the bed slightly can increases visual impact of flowers and can help keep soil in the bed and out of the surrounding lawn or mulch. Dont skip this step even if you applied these materials last year. Yearly applications of organic matter continue to build quality soil and improve your gardening results. Apply the type and amount of fertilizer recommended by your soil test report. If this information is not available use about three pounds of a low nitrogen slow release fertilizer for every 100 square feet of garden. Check the back of your fertilizer bag for more details. Once the soil is prepared it is time to plant. Carefully slide your transplants out of their container. Gently loosen any circling roots. Plant flowers and vegetables in the prepared planting bed then water thoroughly. Mulch the soil surface with a one to two inch layer of pine straw, evergreen needles, shredded leaves or other organic material. These help suppress weeds, conserve moisture and improve the soil as they decompose. Seem like too much work? Investing time preparing the soil at the start of the season will save you time throughout the season. Youll spend less time watering, managing pests and replacing struggling or dead plants. This gives you more time to harvest beautiful flowers for bouquets, vegetables for your favorite recipes, or just to sit, relax and enjoy your landscape. Make this the year to start building a strong foundation for a healthy and productive garden.Gardening expert, TV/radio host, author & columnist Melinda Myers has more than 30 years of horticulture experience and has written over 20 gardening books, including Cant Miss Small Space Gardening and the Midwest Gardeners Handbook.

WWW.GADCOTIMES.COMTHEGADSDENCOUNTYTIMES THURSDAY, MAY22, 2014 A13 Photo courtesy of Getty ImagesFAMILY FEATURES Despite having hundreds of options to choose from, finding the right bra in the right fit, style and color is a task many women dread. However, getting smart about how to choose the best bra for your unique shape and needs will ease your mind, so your only worry is finding the perfect outfit to wear with it. ComfortiskeyEnsuring youve found the right size bra means little if it doesnt feel good. In fact, womens No. 1 complaint when shopping for a bra is finding a size that is comfortable. Innovation may not be the first thing that comes to mind when you think of bras, but a quick visit to the lingerie department of any retailer demonstrates todays selections are a far cry from undergarments of decades past. New developments in bras especially the emerg ing use of seamless knit technology and flexible fabrics and components give much greater attention to comfort in fit, while also delivering support and style. Many popular brands have introduced flexible fit bra lines using seamless construc tion and advanced components such as straps, cups and bands that feel customized to the wearer. The flexibility of these bras has led some bra brands to replace the traditional cupand-band sizing system with a simplified alpha Smart Size system. Similar to sports bra sizing, this sizing system makes it easy to find the right bra quickly. The brands say that 10 simpli fied seamless, shape-to-fit Smart Sizes ranging from XS to 5X are equivalent to more than 30 cup-and-band sizes ranging from 30A to 52DD. Smart Sizes revolutionizes how women fit and buy their bras, said Sandy Waitz, vice president of intimate apparel design and devel opment for HanesBrands, one of the largest intimate apparel companies in the world. With the flexible fit properties of Smart Sizes, women can find a bra that literally molds to their individual shape, including unique fit challenges such as between sizes and unevenly sized breasts. Popular bra brands like Bali, Hanes, Playtex, Barely There and Just My Size all offer bras with Smart Sizes that are available at leading retailers around the country. SizeitupFor years, experts have lamented that the majority of women are wearing the wrong size bra. The complexity and limits of traditional cup-and-band sizes can exacerbate finding the right fit. Here are indicators of a problem fit:If the cup is not filled out, or it wrinkles, a smaller cup or a contour cup may be needed.If flesh overflows, a larger cup or a fuller cut style may provide a better fit.The band should be snug to the chest; if it rides up, it is too loose or the wrong size.If the straps dig into your shoulders, you need a more supportive cup and frame. Your straps should not be doing any of the lifting. BraCare101Follow these guidelines to keep your bras in tip-top condition:To avoid snags, tears and under wires poking through, hand wash bras in cold water using laundry detergent formulated for delicate washing.If you must machine wash, always place bras in a lingerie bag and use a delicate wash setting with a cool water temperature. Refer to the manufacturers instructions regard ing how many items your bag can accommodate to avoid overfilling.Always air dry bras; heat will damage stretchy fabric and result in misshaping over time. Signs that its time to replace your bra:You spill over the cups or no longer fill them.The bra rides up and/or straps fall down on a consistent basis.Youre experiencing back or posture problems.Your bra has rips, tears, pilling or other damage, such as color fading.Youre uncomfortable. Fluctuating bra sizeIf you find your best fit falls between traditional sizes, your bra size changes due to weight loss or gain or you have unevenly sized breasts, a flexible fit bra that offers a more custom fit may be your best choice. Many flexible fit bras also take the guesswork out of finding the right bra size with easy-to-find sizes like XS through 5X. Wardrobe versatilityWhen you want to avoid showing straps under your favorite tops, look for bras with conver tible straps and cups designed for a plunging neckline, such as Hanes Wirefree Everyday Comfort Convertible Push-Up or Bali Comfort Revolution Smart Sizes Convertible Straps bra.Color coordinationIf you want to avoid the peek-a-boo bra in a light-weight or thin top try wearing a bra in a complementing color. The Barely There CustomFlex Fit collection offers a variety of styles and color options, allowing you to move beyond the basic white, black and nude shades.Larger sizesLook for bras that eliminate uncomfortable seams and slipping straps. For example, the Just My Size Pure Comfort Seamless Wirefree Bra, available in 1X to 5X, boasts an innovative, seamless construction that offers knit-in support. The wide-bottom band helps prevent roll-up, the broad straps eliminate slippage and a wide rounded back delivers a touch of smoothing. Active lifestyleWhen your day keeps you on the run and in need of a supportive bra without the compres sion of a sports bra, try the Playtex Play Funwinder bra. This style provides seamless support with cushioned adjustable straps, lightly padded cups and wicks away moisture to keep you cool through all your daily activities. Underwire supportLook for styles that provide the support of a traditional underwire bra but with a wirefree feel. For example, Bali Comfort Revolution Smart Sizes Underwire features a comfortable under wire that delivers support and knit-in zones that provide targeted shaping.

A14THEGADSDENCOUNTYTIMES THURSDAY, MAY22, 2014 WWW.GADCOTIMES.COM 1. Designate a lifeguard. Always pick at least one responsible adult to monitor children at all times. 2. Know CPR: Before investing in a pool, be sure to take a CPR class. The faster CPR can be admin istered to a person in distress, the stronger the longterm outcome. 3. Keep your water clean: Pool safety also includes keeping the water clean and sanitary for your family. Invest in the proper tools, such as the pool care systems from BioGuard, to keep your waters crystal clear. 4. Enroll kids in swimming lessons: Teach the skill of swimming to children at a young age. Enroll kids in classes to learn the basics and avoid accidents. 5.Teach the parts of a pool: Show children where to locate the drains, pipes and other pool openings. Explain the importance of avoiding these areas while swimming as they can cause harm. 6. Keep an eye in the sky: Storms can strike at any time in the summer. Be aware of the current weather and the days forecast before you jump in for a swim. 7. Dont rely on toys: Swimming noodles, innertubes and other inflatable pool toys do not take the place of a life jacket. 8. Keep a phone close: Always keep a cell phone or portable phone with you while supervising kids in the pool. 9. Keep your pool tidy: Keeping your pool toys and other clutter picked up after use will not only help prevent trip-and-fall accidents, it will also be less tempting for unwanted pool guests to engage in unsafe activities on your property. 10. Fence it up: Keep uninvited guests and potential accidents away from your pool property by install ing a four-foot or taller fence along with a selfclosing, self-latching gate.FAMILY FEATURES Warmer weather brings leisurely days spent poolside with friends and family. As you get ready to dive in to another season of fun in the sun, remember that safety comes first. With more than 10 million residential pools across America, the opportunities for water recreation right at home are plentiful. But so, too, are the chances of waterrelated mishaps. According to the Centers for Disease Control, drowning is the fifth leading cause of unintentional injury death in the United States. Children are particularly at risk; one in five drowning victims is age 14 or younger. However, dedicating appropriate attention to your family pools maintenance and ensuring you have created an environment of safety will let you enjoy swimming and splashing with greater peace of mind. Pools are a great source of enjoyment for families, and with proper supervision and care, the entire family can confidently dive in to hours of fun, said Joe DeFuria, Brand Manager of BioGuard. Taking time early in the season to brush up on this important information will help keep everyone safe all summer long. The CDC cites lack of swimming ability, lack of barriers to prevent unsuper vised water access, lack of close supervision while swimming as some of the leading risks associated with drowning. Preventive efforts such as learning to swim (or teaching swimming skills), ensuring at least one person with CPR training is present when the pool is in use and having proper safety devices (e.g., life vests and preservers) readily accessible help reduce injuries and accidents. Put these measures in place so you can enjoy the fun at hand, without the worry: Photos courtesy of Getty Images Saltwater Pools Are Making Waves Did you know saltwater pools are the hottest trend in new pool construction? According to an article from Pool and Spa News, today there are about 1.35 million saltwater pools in the United States. Whats the difference between chlorine and salt water? While both pool types clean the water with chlorine, saltwater pools also require a salt generator cell and a stabilizer to keep waters properly sanitized. Why do customers choose saltwater over chlorine pools? Some feel saltwater is less harsh on the skin and eyes than traditional chlorine pools. However, saltwater pools require additional maintenance to avoid corro sion and to ensure chemical levels are in balance. Pool Care Doesnt Get a VacationIf a getaway is on your agenda this summer, plan ahead to ensure your pool is as pristine and inviting when you return as the day you leave. Work with a local pool care professional to create a vacation maintenance plan that matches your pools specific needs and takes into account how long youll be away. Before you leave, clean the pool thoroughly, brushing and vacuuming walls and floors. Test the water and correct any imbalances. Set the timer or enlist the help of a trusted friend or neighbor to ensure the pump runs a minimum of eight hours each day while youre gone. Upon returning home, have a professional water analysis performed to ensure that your pool is properly balanced and ready for swimming. Pool Maintenance EssentialsPool owners understand the importance of keeping it clean all season long. The experts at BioGuard provide these tips to keep your pool looking its best for family and guests:Make waves. Constant water movement helps prevent bacteria and algae from growing and ensures that the pool sanitizer is evenly distributed throughout the entire pool. Circulating pool water during the day for at least 12 hours also helps the filter catch debris. Check that filter. Backwash filters periodically and chemically clean filters a minimum of twice a season. Scrub-a-dub. Brush and vacuum pool walls once a week, even if you use an automatic pool cleaner, or hire a service. Test the waters. Every pool needs to be tested for the correct pH and sanitizer levels every week. Have a thorough water analysis performed by a professional every month.Keep that water treatment going. The right water treatment plan will both maintain pool equipment and keep the water inviting. For instance, the SilkGuard Technology in BioGuards Silk sanitizer line makes pool water feel soft and smooth on skin while also preventing corrosion and protecting equipment.

The origins of Friday the 13th come from many sources, one of which is the Norse myth of the death of the god Balder. As the myth goes, Balder, the god of joy, had dreamed of his death, and to prevent it from happening, Balders mother got everything, except for mistletoe, to promise not to harm her son. A naughty god named Loki became jealous of Balder, and one day while the gods were having a dinner party, he arrived uninvited as the 13th guest. Loki had found out that mistletoe was Balders weakness and made an arrow out of it. He then tricked Balders blind brother Hoder into shooting Balder with the mistletoe arrow. Balder died, and although others tried to help him, he was forced to stay in the underworld while Loki was punished for his bad deeds.

Both artists live, work and play along the west coast of Florida, from Tampa Bay to Aripeka, to the springs of Weeki Wachee. Avid conservationists, both artists have a deep love and respect for Florida the aquifers, the wetlands, the wildlife and the precious resources of the region. This understanding crosses over to a deeper spiritual understanding that ties their art work and the artists together. Leslie Neumann and Susan Gott both use material and process to influence color and form in their work. Leslie, working with encaustic (hot wax) and oil paint applies the paint and wax to a surface while hot, and as it congeals she scrapes away colors, engraves words or pictographs, resulting in a rich luminous surface. Susan casts molten glass directly from a furnace burning at 2300 degrees and incorporates images, symbols, inclusions and color, inspired by nature with ancient symbolism. Together their friendship and common interest in the natural world served to create a new means of expression in their mutual interest in the spiritual. Our technical discussions of how we were going to make something did not preclude our deeper understanding of what the work was about. The creation of these works allowed a new crossing into our own interest into the mystic. This mutual understanding was really exciting for us. We quickly worked through the technical challenges and timelines, and what we produced was beyond our expectations, says Susan Gott. On Friday, June 6, starting at 6 p.m., both artists will be at the Gadsden Arts Center to celebrate the opening of their exhibition, along with three other exhibits. At 6:30 p.m., both artists will take a few minutes to speak about their individual works and collaborations. Neumann received a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree from the California College of Arts and Crafts in Oakland, Calif., and a Masters Degree in painting from New York University in Manhattan. Her images are inspired by the raw, primitive energy of the wetlands and the vast, cosmic night sky that surround her. Made with oil paint and encaustic, the hot wax is applied with a brush. As it cools, the artist scrapes through to reveal other layers of color, resulting in a luminous and textured surface. Read more at www.leslieneumann. com/. Gott has a Master of Fine Arts degree from Kent State University and has studied at Pilchuck, Penland, Haystack and Arrowmont Schools for glass. She has worked in glass for more than 30 years and specializes in large-scale, cast glass sculpture that incorporates steel or stone. Each sculpture is created using a sand mold process where each piece is individually hand carved, colored, cast from the molten glass, and hand polished to reveal the interior. The work embodies her interest in mythological symbolism and philosophies from ancient cultures that express the union of human being and nature. The resulting glass, with primitive qualities and metaphors, are a visual re-presentation of the cycles of life. Visit www.gottglass.comfor information. The Gadsden Arts Center is at 13 N. Madison St., Quincy. Hours are Tuesday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Admission is free; $1 donation is suggested. For information call 850-875-4866 or visit www. gadsdenarts.org/.

The release quotes Vicki Muse Johnson, a member of the Big Bend Hospice Advisory Council and educator with Gadsden County schools for more than three decades. Several years ago, the idea came from a goal to have each person with Gadsden County Schools give one dollar to Big Bend Hospice, in support of the service they provide to our community, she said. Some people may not have a lot of money to give, but every bit helps and I know Big Bend Hospice will make good use of what have been brought forward. Participating school included Chattahoochee, Greensboro, Gretna, Havana and St. John elementary schools, as well as Gadsden Elementary Magnet, Carter-Parramore Academy, Havana Middle, Shanks Middle, West Gadsden High and East Gadsden High schools.

If you see the Midway Fire Department crew flushing a hydrant on your street, avoid running tap water and using the washing machine or the dishwasher until the flushing is completed. Please drive carefully if you see the flushing crew working in the area. What could I expect before and after flushing? If tap water is used during flushing, it could come out discolored and contain sediment.If you encounter discolored water, shut the water off and wait several minutes.After waiting, check the clarity by running cold water for a few minutes,allowing new water to work its way into your pipes.If the water is clear, its OK to use.If not, wait a few more minutes and check again.In some cases, there might be a slight discoloration for a few hours.This discoloration only affects the appearance of the water; it does not affect the taste or water quality.The water may also have a milky appearance. This is due to tiny air bubbles and will dissipate out and is not harmful.Avoid washing laundry with the water that is discolored. Wait until the water runs clear at the tap, then wash a load of dark clothes first.

The Midway Fire Department flushes the fire hydrants throughout their response area once a year. Hydrant flushing will commence May 29 and run through approximately July 5.The hydrant-flushing program is very important to the maintenance of Talquins water distribution system. During this process, it is not uncommon for a yellow, brown or reddish tint to appear in the water. Harmless mineral deposits settle in the water mains, and flushing the system stirs the deposits causing the discoloration. Flushing removes the sediments from the mains and also serves the following purposes: Improves water quality in the distribution system.Verifies the proper operation of fire hydrants and valvesHelps find weaknesses in the water systemChecks for closed valves and weak flows in the water mainsVerifies adequate fire flows for fire fighting For information, contact Fire Chief Kent Pridemore at850-574-7776.
