Preferences for different law firms varied among commissioners. Commissioner Doug Croley said he would like to continue with the countys current legal advisors, the Ausley Law Firm, for sake of continuity. He then motioned accordingly. Commissioner Gene Morgan seconded the motion. We have been provided good services and fair costs, said Morgan. And I think we should commend our current firm for that. Morgan also said Ausley employs Gadsden County residents. Commissioner Brenda Holt objected, arguing Ausley already represents too many local business entities, which may present conflicts of interest with the county. She suggested switching to Nabors Law Firm. I want something in writing that says you defend the county above all, said Holt. We need some assurance of whats going to happen. Commissioner Sherrie Taylor agreed. She said she was not receiving information in a timely manner from the current representation. She also said she didnt think representation was equal around the board. Im frustrated, said Taylor. Im still trying my very best to remain professional. Hinson initially agreed. He said he wanted to switch to BoCC debates legal counsel options See BOCC/ Page A2 School earns statewide status ROBERT ALLENTimes Reporter Stewart Street Elementary School in Quincy received FCAT 2 scores on May 23. They discovered their third-graders ranked second in the state in both reading and math. This is a marked improvement from last years scores. Maya Rozier, a third-grade teacher, explained that the improved math scores were reached by making sure the students used and understood problem-solving strategies and wrote out their work to demonstrate their progress and command of the concepts. What were doing is working, said Rozier. Our kids come from all walks of life. A lot of them come from the projects and things like that but we dont let that stop us. We dont allow them to make excuses. And it just shows that our kids can be successful, and we can compete with some of the top kids in the state. Shakilla Gordon, another third-grade teacher, said she predicts the students will do even better in the future. She acknowledged critical reading is a challenging skill set to teach. More than one of Stewart Streets students received a perfect math score but not a single student managed to achieve a perfect score on the FCAT 2s reading section. Reading is the difficult one, Gordon said. The reading is more based on comprehension. The students have to really go back and reason with Stewart Street Elementary third-graders take second-highest FCAT 2 score for reading, math See FCAT/ Page A22 Marking a milestone ROBERT ALLENTimes Reporter The last strain of Pomp and Circumstance has played for Gadsden Countys 2014 high school seniors. This past week tassels were turned for the members of four graduating classes now ready to explore the next chapter in their lives.East Gadsden High SchoolEast Gadsden High Schools class of 2014 commenced at 9 a.m. on May 24. The schools gymnasium reached capacity for the ceremony. Both sets of bleachers, floors seats and standing room were all filled. An additional crowd observed the ceremony from the cafeteria via video monitor. Despite all weve learned, we still havent learned much at all, said Meaghan Sapp, EGHSs valedictorian, in her address. We have so much more to explore about life, about work and about relationships. Reginald James, superintendent of Gadsden County schools, spoke at both public high schools commencements. At East Gadsden he reminded the students from where all blessings come and asked the graduates to never forget the power of prayer. He also encouraged them to actively build futures. He told them if opportunity does not knock they should tear down the doors. James also warned the graduates against feeling too big just yet, lest they go home and tell their parents theyre all grown adults. The superintendent said grown is when you pay your own way in life and he tried to impress upon the graduates the price their parents have paid to get them this far. His reminder was met with cheers and applause from the audience. James told graduates they have to now choose to do something. He told them high school is a foundation for a future, not an ending. He warned the graduates to make sure they know where they want to go or they wont want to be where they eventually find themselves.

Quincy Police arrested Johnny McClain on May 20 at his residence at 1938 W. Jefferson St. He had open warrants for vehicle burglary and theft from a case that has been evolving since an initial incident on Jan. 13. According to QPDs arrest report, McClain approached a mother and daughter vacuuming the interior of their Nissan at the American Car Wash at 1956 West Jefferson Street a short distance from where McClain was recently arrested. The woman reported McClain stopping by the open drivers door and then asking if he could do the vacuuming for a tip. The daughter declined, explaining she did not have spare cash on hand. The mother than walked to a neighboring convenience store while her daughter finished with the car. According to QPDs report, the daughter lost sight of McClain when she resumed vacuuming. The next time she looked around for him, he was nowhere in sight. When the women arrived home, they discovered the purse was missing from where it had been left in the front Johnny McClain See QPD/ Page A2

But then he said he started considering the numbers. They did everything we told them to do, said Hinson. I believe in being fair. Anything I do, I believe in looking at the total picture. I think were talking too much about it. Croley countered Holt and Taylor, saying all the law firms the county considered have been good law firms but a sense of respect and a desire for continuity left him disinclined to sever an existing relationship. When Croleys motion came to a vote, Holt and Taylor opposed it, allowing the Ausley Law Firm to currently continue representing Gadsden County. BOCCContinued from Page A1 of the car. According to the police report, the purse contained three separate envelopes, partitioned for bill payments, containing $1,099. The purse also contained three debit cards, a Social Security card and a drivers license. Two months later, the mother picked McClain out of a six-person photo line-up on March 7 at the Quincy Police Department. Another two months later, QPD initiated contact with McClain on May 15 at his girlfriends home on West Jefferson Street. According to the report, the officers asked McClain to come with them to the station for questioning. McClain complied without incident. According to QPDs report, McClain spiraled down a path of escalating admissions during questioning. First he said he heard about he alleged purse theft incident but wasnt there. Then he said he was there but couldnt remember much. QPD then asked McClain to share what he did remember. McClain said he was there, according to the report. He said he offered to vacuum the car. And he said he asked for $.50 to help buy cigarettes. He also said he does this often and, accordingly, cant recall any additional particulars. Then he said he stole the purse because he has a crack cocaine addiction. According to the report, he told the officers crack makes him want more crack and he took the purse because he needed more money to buy more crack. According to the report, McClain said he took around $20 from the purse and then threw it along with its remaining contents into a Dumpster. McClain is currently in the county jail. His bond is set at $10,000. QPDContinued from Page A1 Gadsden County Sheriffs Office Arrest Report May 26, 20141. Angelia Yvette Bryant: VOP/aggravated battery with a deadly weapon 2.

Zale Eugene Baker: VOP/grand theft ROBERT ALLENTimes Reporter Taylor Lee, PMD, and Crystal Mander, EMT, where honored along with 911 dispatchers Sylvia Brooks and Cindy Clifton after the four emergency professionals played a critical role in saving heart attack patient William Hinsons life. They also helped set a new door-to-balloon record at Capital Regional Medical Center. The door-toballoon time refers to the how long a patient must wait between entering a hospital and having the obstruction cleared away from the heart. I got so hot like I had a fire inside of me, said Hinson, recalling the day he was treated in record time. Ive been hot before, but Ive never experienced that kind of heat. So I started pulling my clothes off. I thought I was leaving so I started praying. I dont know when I stopped. According to Dr. Niraj Pandit, a cardiologist from Capital Regional Medical Center, the national average door-toballoon time is 90 minutes. Capital Regional Medical Centers average is 38.6 minutes. And Hinsons door-to-balloon time was 13 minutes. It all starts with the dispatcher who receives the phone call, said Dr. Niraj Pandit. They then dispatch the EMS people to the patient and then they bring the patient to the emergency room. And the quicker they do that the quicker the patient with a heart attack gets to the hospital the quicker we can get them into the cath-lab and try to open up the artery, which then saves the heart muscle. Lee, Mander, Brooks and Cliftons awards were presented as part of National Emergency Medical Services Week.. Paying attention, keeping focus experience is what really matters, said Mander. Those big trucks arent easy to drive. It takes some getting used to. Lee agreed, citing the importance of practice and awareness. I just revert back to my training and do it that way in the box, he said. Everybody has to be there and be on their toes. And it just has to fall right no hiccups and no mistakes.

A4THEGADSDENCOUNTYTIMES THURSDAY, MAY29, 2014 WWW.GADCOTIMES.COMJudy and I are getting into the swing of things in our new neighborhood here in Leesburg, in Central Florida. Since we have lived in an over-55 community we are making plenty of new friends and becoming a lot more active than we were when we lived in Havana and Tallahassee, where people our age werent as numerous. Its not that we wanted to live in a community made up entirely of seniors; we just wanted to have some of them around who would have things in common with us. Why, Im still trying to get used to being with adults. You have to remember I spent the best hours of the day for 30 years of my life as a teacher with 12and 13year old students. I dont know what to say to adults or how to act with them much of the time. Only kidding, but at times I have to remind myself I am not always comfortable with some adults today because I had gotten away from being with them for such a long period of time. When I was growing up my father tried so hard to make his three sons the handyman and jack-of-alltrades that he had become. No way, Jose! None of us ever became really handy, although my youngest brother, Ken, would like to think he is. My father was tyrannical and not a very patient man. He lacked skills in teaching and gentleness and the ability to keep himself composed enough of the time. I never considered myself a handyman, although there was much I could do around the house after I became an adult and married. As long as instructions were available I could usually assemble things wed purchased or repair things if they werent major. I have met men who could not do anything around the house, nor would they ever attempt to do jobs of any nature whatsoever. Judy is handier than I am, I think. After all, she was married to a building contractor for 23 years and picked up many skills enabling her to perform several household chores and/or repairs. We work very well together, now. For the first few years of our marriage shed stand over me, carefully observing any repair Id be making around the house, ready to show me how to do the task at hand properly. Ive removed several medicine cabinets in my lifetime and feel quite adept at performing that task. It was one of the first jobs I undertook after Judy and I married. Ill never forget her standing directly behind me waiting for me to make a mistake so she could tell me how to do it right, as my father would have done. Im probably exaggerating a bit, but she did have her way of removing and installing a medicine cabinet, and, of course, my way was the wrong way. Its taken us almost 10 years to become an effective husband-and-wife working team. In our new neighborhood Judy and I have helped Shirley and Al next door several times; we do quite a bit to help keep their home and yard nicely maintained. Weve repaired the hardware on a cupboard door for them twice and removed old exterior garage lights and installed new ones. Weve even kept their lawn sprinkler system going and have saved them quite a bit of money changing sprinkler heads and adjusting them and installing new ones. LAWRENCE S. WITTNERPEACEVOICEIs economic inequality growing in American higher education? A report just issued by the Institute for Policy Studies The One Percent at State U indicates that it is. Surveying public universities, the report finds that the 25 highest-paid presidents increased their income by a third between fiscal 2009 and fiscal 2012, bringing their average total compensation to nearly a million dollars each. Also, the number of these chief executives earning over a million dollars in 2012 more than doubled over the previous year. In 2013, the best-paid among them was E. Gordon Gee of Ohio State University, who raked in $6,057,615 from this employment. The lucrative nature of these positions appears to have had little to do with the intellectual distinction of the universities. For example, in 2013 the second-most lavishly-rewarded public university president (paid $1,636,274) headed up Texas A&M University at College Station and the eighth (paid $1,072,121) headed up the University of South Alabama, two institutions not usually considered the acme of intellectual achievement. By contrast, the presidents of some of the nations most respected public universities the University of Wisconsin-Madison, the University of California-Berkeley, UCLA, and the University of MassachusettsAmherst received total annual compensation that ranged from $400,664 to $467,699. Nor is it at all clear that the top income recipients at universities merit their extraordinary compensation. Graham Spanier, the highest-paid public university president in 2012 (Penn State, $2.9 million), was fired from his post for his apparent role in the cover-up of sexual abuse of children by his universitys assistant football coach. E. Gordon Gee, the highest-paid public university president in 2013, resigned his position amid a trustee uproar over his disparaging remarks about Catholics. Meanwhile, as the incomes of the 25 best-paid public university presidents soared, the livelihoods of their faculty deteriorated. This deterioration resulted largely from the fact that tenured and tenure-track faculty were replaced with adjuncts (part-time instructors, paid by the course) and contingents (temporary faculty). Median pay for adjuncts in the United States is reportedly $2,700 per course, forcing them to cobble together enough courses or jobs to ensure their survival. Many have incomes below the official poverty level and receive food stamps. As for contingents, they face low pay, few if any benefits, and no job security. In recent years as the income of the 25 best-paid public university presidents grew dramatically their hiring of adjunct and contingent faculty far outstripped their hiring of regular faculty at their institutions. Consequently, although tenure and tenure-line faculty at these 25 universities outnumbered contingent and part-time faculty prior to the fall of 2009, the situation was reversed by the fall of 2011. University presidents living large OpinionE The Environmental MagazineDear EarthTalk: A recent study showed that Bisphenol A (BPA) was hardly the human health risk researchers once believed it to be. Should I still try to avoid products that may contain it? Carolyn Danes, Waukesha, Wis. Some 93 percent of us carry traces of the synthetic compound Bisphenol A (BPA) in our bloodstreams, so its no wonder that public health advocates are concerned about its potential effects. Developed in the 1950s to strengthen plastics and epoxy resins, BPA is today used in a wide range of products, including many plastic food and drink containers, the lining of most cans, some paper products, and dental sealants. But with widespread use of BPA has come increased scrutiny regarding its potential impact on human health. When ingested, BPA mimics naturally occurring human hormones and thus can potentially interfere with the bodys endocrine and reproductive workings. According to the nonprofit Breast Cancer Fund, previous research has linked BPA exposure to with increased risk for cardiovascular disease, miscarriages, decreased birth weight at term, breast and prostate cancer, reproductive and sexual dysfunctions, altered immune system activity, metabolic problems and diabetes in adults, and cognitive and behavioral development in young children. These concerns have led the European Union, Canadaand more recently the U.S.to ban the use of BPA in baby bottles and other items geared toward babies and children. Meanwhile, the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) maintains that typical low-level BPA exposure does not pose any health risk. A February 2014 study by FDA researchers found that low doses of the compound did not affect the health of rats over a 90-day study period. While study rats exposed to higher doses of BPA had lower body weights, abnormal female reproductive development and altered hormone levels, there were no such effects in rats exposed to lower doses more akin to what humans experience. But critics point out some flaws in that study which call its conclusions into question. For one, a control group of rats that was supposed to remain unexposed to BPA somehow had levels of the compound in their blood equivalent to the lowestdose study population. FDA researchers maintain that this contamination of the control group did not affect their results because neither group of rats showed any effects given their low-dose exposure.

In 1930, state and federal services for injured veterans dating from as far back as the Revolutionary War were joined together under the federal Department of Veterans Affairs. After World WarII, educational benefits were added to health and disability benefits. Later, eligibility for benefits was broadened to include almost anyone who served on active duty, and some civilian contractors, as well. Always offering free health care to veterans with service-connected disabilities, the VA expanded its facilities to offer discounted health care to all veterans. Today, at 280,000 employees, the VA has become the second-largest government bureau with a budget of about $160billion. The VA health system, managed and financed by our government, has welldocumented quality and service issues at many of its facilities. Long waits for appointments, burdensome forms to complete and slow response times are the norm. Shielded by congress and veterans organizations from constructive change, the VA has paid out more than $200million to settle 1,000 wrongful death allegations. A private, non-governmental health system, doing what the VA has, would have been bankrupted by lawsuits. High-ranking officers would be serving jail sentences. The problems of the VA system are the inherent flaws of all large government bureaucracies. (1) The number of employees is too large to permit effective management. (2) Neither pay nor promotion is closely dependent upon productivity or service quality. (3) Most federal employees are unionized and can rarely be disciplined or fired for poor job performance. What causes some of the delays veterans face in obtaining service is that salaried physicians across the board see fewer patients than fee-for-service physicians, even in a private setting. For example, a psychiatrist from the St. Louis VA hospital recently filed a whistleblower lawsuit complaining that he was demoted as chief after he attempted to get staff psychiatrists to see more than six patients per day half the number seen by a private practice psychiatrist. He noted that while actual productivity in the St. Louis hospital was low, paperwork made the hospital appear to be better than average in output. The latest scandal, 40 veterans dying while waiting for medical care, and the almost-daily new scandals may strike a fatal blow to this beast. Congressmen from both parties are now asking the administration to make changes, fire those responsible for the failures, prosecute those who falsified records. They are wasting their efforts: The VA system is too large to be effectively managed. Department of Veterans Affairs ought to be dismantled completely; the hospitals, nursing homes, clinics and administration buildings sold to private bidders. Entitlements to health care must be reserved for veterans with service-connected disabilities only, as it originally was. Vouchers should be issued to these veterans to pay for covered health services at private institutions where they can get immediate, first-class care without waiting in long lines. Leaders of the American Legion and other veterans organizations will not agree with my suggestions. They work hand-in-glove with the Department of Veterans Affairs to keep the entitlement funding coming. Veterans who game the system with trumpedup claims of service-connected disability (I have met some of you) and many who enjoy the discounts the VA provides will continue to support the VA as it is. But deep within their hearts, at least some of them must know that they are supporting a bureaucracy that provides second-rate care to many veterans at an unsustainable cost to the nation. If they are patriots as they claim, if they really care about those injured while fighting our wars, if they are aware that our nation is going broke on the back of these and other entitlements, they must support restructuring veterans benefits.William Dixon is a graduate of Columbia University, New York Medical College and the USF College of Business Administration.

WWW.GADCOTIMES.COMTHEGADSDENCOUNTYTIMES THURSDAY, MAY29, 2014 A5 Sports Panthers come up short at spring jamboree TERRANCE CHISOLMTimes Sports CorrespondentOn Thursday evening, May 22, the Panthers capped off their spring football season as they traveled to Maclay High School for some competitive action, squaring off for two quarters against both FAMU DRS and Maclay High School. As his players stretched, Coach Striplin gave an overview of the things he expected to see: I want to see some of the new guys under the lights and see if they play physical. Were just going to evaluate the players on film after the games and see whos ready for the regular season. West Gadsden received the ball first in their opening matchup against FAMU High but they were unable to sustain their drive. The Panthers defense showed a lot of character as they fought through some early penalties and came up with a big sack that stopped the Rattler drive. West Gadsdens offense settled down and began to execute during their second series of the game. Antonio Murphy came up with some nice runs that led to a successful field goal attempt by Israel Grande, which gave the Panthers a 3-0 lead with 7:06 left in the first quarter. With 4:27 left to play in the first period, West Gadsdens defense came up with another big play as Qwantrezz Knight jumped a pass and came up with an interception. Unfortunately, the Panthers shot themselves in the foot 10 seconds later when a Rattler defender picked up a bobbled pass by Murphy and returned it about 55 yards for a score, which resulted in a 7-3 lead for FAMU High. The Panthers offensive line had a difficult time controlling the line of scrimmage during the bottom half of the opening quarter, and were unable to regain the lead heading into the second quarter. West Gadsden attempted to connect on several deep balls in the second quarter, but a lack of protection made it difficult for Knight to accurately deliver the ball. With just under five minutes left to play the Rattlers put together their best drive of the scrimmage, which they capped off with a nicely designed pass play near the right sideline that yielded their second touchdown of the game. The Panther offense took the field down 143 with 3:21 left on the clock. The Rattler defenders continued to penetrate the line and put Knight under duress. Despite the adversity, Knight held his composure and came up with a big completion to Octavious Evans. After a few nice runs, Murphy took a hand-off near the FAMU 25-yard line and sprinted down the left sideline into the end zone. The Rattlers were able to hold onto the ball for the final two minutes of the game as the Panthers suffered a hard-fought loss by a score of 14-10.

This scrimmage marked the first time the Jaguar football team has played a live game under the leadership of their new Head Coach Antonio Carter. The Cougars received the ball first and scored on their opening drive to jump out to a 7-0 lead with 9:15 remaining in the first quarter. East Gadsdens offense struggled on their opening series and was forced to punt. The Jaguars committed several mistakes in the opening period, including several missed tackles and a fumble, which allowed the Cougars to extend their lead by a score of 14-0 heading into the second quarter. Godby continued to increase their dominance on both sides of the ball during the second quarter, as they produced four rushing touchdowns. Aside from a couple of nice runs, the Cougars defense bottled up the Jaguar offense and at the end of the first half they held a huge 40-0 advantage. East Gadsdens tough times carried over to the second half as their offense continued to struggle to move the ball. The Jaguar defense did a better job of containing Godbys high-powered running game in the second half, but the Cougars were still able to put up 16 additional points. The Jaguars were unable to find the end zone as they fell 56-0 to the Cougars. After the scrimmage, Coach Carter shared these thoughts on the game and provided his outlook on the months ahead before the start of the regular season: We got a great team. Im proud of them; weve got some things to fix. Weve got to get these guys playing fast; its going to turn on. Were going to keep working; were going to bring our hardhats and boots and go to work.

Frances Frank Mays will be in camp with the Philadelphia Eagles and Brandon Denmark, who had four opportunities from various teams, chose to head to Green Bay for an opportunity to become a Packer. Mays (6-10, 295 lbs from Bemidji, Minn.) was a solid defender for the Rattlers 3-4 defense for two seasons. With exceptional height, he has flexibility and uncommon agility for a frame well-suited for the NBA. With good feet and hands, he was elusive to blockers during his time at FAMU. In 2012, he tallied 21 tackles (11UA, 10 ASST), 5.0 tackles for loss, two sacks and one quarterback hurry. Against the University of Oklahoma in 2012, he was able to sack Heisman Trophy candidate Landry Jones in Norman, Okla. In 2013, he collected 47 tackles, despite usually being doubleteamed. He had 30 solo tackles and 17 assisted tackles, including 10.5 tackles for loss. He had four sacks on the season for a combined 28 yards loss. Denmark (6-4, 235 lbs from Tallahassee, Fla.) transferred to FAMU in connection with a coaching change at the University of Illinois. Denmark possesses exceptional speed to go along with his frame. In 2012, he saw action 10 out of the Rattlers 11 games, collecting 54 tackles in the process. He carded 30 solos and 24 assisted tackles.

Not being judgmental, just never thought to do so. Apparently, the Philistines were set to slaughter the Israelites. Full-on assault, take no prisoners. If you recall from the story of David and Goliath, the Philistines were huge, mean and scary. So when the Israelites heard about the upcoming attack, they went to their leader, Samuel, and begged him to ask God to save them. God answered with thunder so fierce not only did it rattle the Philistines teeth, but it so confused them they went in the wrong direction. The Israelites pursued them and, after a major smack-down, took most of them out and sent the rest running (1 Samuel 7, paraphrase mine). To commemorate the victory, Samuel took a rock and named it Ebenezer, which means stone of help. Samuel said, Thus far the Lord has helped us. In other places in the Bible, people have taken stones and set them in places as memorials, visible reminders of something God had done for them. In AA, people who reach milestones in their sobriety, such as 90 days or six months without a drink, are often given a token. Some people carry these tokens in their pockets or wear them around their necks so they can see and touch them and remember they were once and still are powerless except for God helping them. On a shelf on my bookcase at home I have three yet un-named rocks that I picked up on the beach in Mexico where my parents live. For many years I felt emotionally separated from my mom my fault, not hers. But after that visit a few years ago and ever since Ive sensed a difference in my soul, like God healed something. The rocks are just rocks, but theyre not. Theyre Ebenezers. Thus far the Lord has helped me. The hymn Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing, written back in the 1700s, talks about Ebenezers. One verse goes: Here I raise mine Ebenezer; hither by thy help Im come; and I hope, by thy good pleasure, safely to arrive at home. Jesus sought me when a stranger, wandering from the fold of God; he, to rescue me from danger, interposed his precious blood. In the world of Christianity, theres a movement to modernize hymns and a countermovement to keep the archaic, old-fashioned words like hither and raise mine Ebenezer. Some churches sing Here I raise to thee an altar in place of the raising Ebenezer line so modern people wont think it means lifting up a miniature Charles Dickens character, a tiny Scrooge in a top hat and black wool coat. But to omit Ebenezer is to omit something deeply wonderful. We raise and sing about our Ebenezers to remember all the ways God has been our help thus far. Just recently, I had a brief moment of doubt. I started thinking maybe what I believe is a fairy tale and my certainty is just delusion. Then I raised mine Ebenezer, or maybe God raised it for me, bringing to mind the days and years before I believed when I was nearly paralyzed with fear all the time, unable to sleep, certain that a B-52 bomber would crash through my bedroom window while I slept. I remembered the day I believed, May 30, 1978, and how it was the day God delivered me from crippling fear, how instantaneously, the B-52 bombers (we lived on an Air Force base at the time) were redirected away from my window, how my paralyzing fear and dread of death went away. It was nothing I had done. God had saved me. He had spared me. He had delivered me. All I had done was realize my powerlessness to save myself and cry out to him and he answered.

In fact, on any given day, more than 158 million Americans drink tea. Approximately 85 percent of tea consumed in America is iced, but the soothing and refresh ing flavors of tea can also infuse fresh and unexpected charac ter into a wide range of dishes,fromdessertstopopularfingerfoodslikechickenwings. Whats more, tea has been shown to have significant health benefits. As green, black, oolong and white teas all come from the Camellia sinensis plant, tea drinkers can reap the health benefits from whichever tea they prefer The major bioactive compounds in tea, called flavonoids, are also found in fruits and vegetables but appear in very high concentra tions in tea. In fact, new research in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition links tea with cardiovascular health, cancer prevention, weight management, improved concentration and bone health, among others.Delightful T ea PairingsEach type of tea has a distinct set of flavor characteristics. Peter Goggi, President of the Tea Council of the USA, explains the flavor profiles of black, green, oolong and white teas, and how to pair them with your favorite foods.Black teas from traditional origins such as India, Sri Lanka and China, as well as English and Irish breakfast varieties and flavored black teas such as Earl Grey are characterized by a strong, aromatic flavor. These teas pair well with dark chocolate, sharp cheeses, eggs, meats and heartier foods because of their rich flavor and tannin levels.Green teas such as Sencha and Jasmine, have a more delicate flavor profile, characterized as grassy or citrusy and pair well with subtly flavored foods, such as seafood, rice and vegetables.Oolong teas, such as Wuyi Shan and Pouchong, are charac terized by a slight smoky flavor and a sweet, nutty finish. These teas pair well with spicy or smoky foods, seafood dishes and fruit.White teas exhibit a natural sweetness and lightness; the subtle flavors pair well with mild tasting sweets or simple salads that don t overpower the flavor of the tea. Start sampling the many flavors of tea with these recipes, and visit www.TeaUSA.org for information about the role of tea in a healthy diet and lifestyle.Refreshing Iced TeaServings: 4 1 quart fresh, filtered water, cold 8 black or green tea bags Bring filtered water to a full boil in teapot.

Soothe sensitive skin with these spa-like treatments you can make with grocery-store ingredients. Yogurt mask To relieve the heat and redness of a sunburned face, apply a thick paste of cold yogurt and chamomile essential oil. Because yogurt is a good source of lactic acid (a natural alpha-hydroxy acid), it gently smoothes rough skin. Yogurt also has mild bleaching action, and if applied often (three or more times a week) can help lighten discoloration caused by excessive sun exposure. Greek yogurts are thicker than other varieties. If your yogurt is runny, strain it through cheesecloth to remove excess moisture. 2 tablespoons thick, plain yogurt, strained if necessary 2 drops chamomile essential oil 1. Mix yogurt and chamomile essential oil. 2. Smooth the mixture over your face and neck. 3. Leave mask on for 15 minutes, then gently rinse skin with tepid water. Lavender-baking soda bath The quickest way to relieve the heat of a sunburn is to take a cool bath. Cool water helps lower skins surface temperature, and baking soda and lavender essential oil soothe tender skin. 1 cup baking soda 10 drops lavender essential oil 1. Add baking soda and lavender essential oil to a tub of comfortably cool water and stir well to dissolve the baking soda. 2. Soak for 15 minutes or more. Aloe-green tea-lavender mist To cool skin and encourage rejuvenation, mist on a mix of green tea, aloe vera juice and lavender essential oil. (Refrigeration aids its cooling power.) 1/4 cup brewed green tea, cooled 1/4 cup aloe vera juice (available at grocery and natural food stores) 1/4 teaspoon lavender essential oil 1. Mix together green tea, aloe and lavender oil in a spray bottle. Shake well. 2. Spray liberally onto skin as often as desired. 3. Refrigerate and use within 2 weeks. Sip n Sigh Green tea contains high levels of skin-rejuvenating antioxidants. If youre sunburned, drink 3 cups of green tea daily (try it iced!) for an extra boost of healing power.

EMILY ENGLISHMother Earth LivingWhen it comes to food satisfaction, few things compare to eating lettuce from the yard, eggs from your neighbors chickens and butter from cows raised on a farm youve visited yourself. Besides locating bettertasting, more nutritious and fresher food, buying locally puts you in the center of a web of food producers, transparently connecting economy and nutrition. But for those of us who dont live on or next door to a farm, finding local food sources can seem difficult. Where do we start? How do we find others who want the same thing? All it requires is a little research, relationshipbuilding and action. Dig in The first step in building a food community is meeting the right people. Search for local farms via websites such as localharvest.org and eatwild.com. Find farmers market listings at the United States Department of Agriculture or visit Our Markets at LocallyGrown.net to find online farmers markets. When visiting area stores and restaurants, look for signage that indicates local products are sold there. Once you track these down, start talking to people about where and how they source their food. Like farms and other producers on Facebook, or visit their websites to see if you can sign up for emails or other communication. You might also make good connections by tapping into the foodie culture in your area. Check bulletin boards at the library, natural food stores and grocery co-ops for cooking classes and speakers. Try culinary academies, area colleges and libraries. Check event listings on the websites of local publications and the chamber of commerce. When you meet people who seem connected with area food culture, ask them how they stay in touch many groups have listservs, enewsletters, websites or Facebook pages dedicated to communicating with one another. Straight to the source Food sourcing doesnt get more direct than buying from the farm. Find farms at LocalHarvest, then call to see if they sell direct to consumers. Buying directly often results in lower prices, especially if you pick it yourself. For example, Clarks Pecan Grove in Mayflower, Ark., lets you take home half of what you pick for free. Berries are 20 percent off if you pick them yourself at Blue Heaven Blueberry Farm in Springdale, Ark. Or buy an entire share of one years harvest from a farm by joining a community-supported agriculture (CSA) program. Most CSAs provide ample opportunity to connect with other members. When I was the farm manager for a small CSA in rural Arkansas, it was incredible to see the relationships forged over fresh produce. At weekly pickups, strangers realized they were neighbors and members shared recipes, traded gardening tips and made plans to attend food-related events together. Find a CSA program near you through the USDAs National Agricultural Library.Excerpted from Mother Earth Living, a national magazine devoted to living wisely and living well.

By MELINDA MYERSPicture yourself harvesting a few fresh strawberries for your cereal in the morning or perhaps picking a few apples from your own backyard tree to cook up into a pie. It is possible, even if you garden on a balcony or small lot. And even if you have plenty of space, you will still appreciate the fun and convenience of reaching out the backdoor and harvesting some homegrown fruit. Strawberries are excellent container plants. Grow ever-bearing or day-neutral varieties, so you will be harvesting strawberries throughout the growing season. Reduce your workload and increase success with a self-watering hanging basket (gardeners.com). Or dress things up a bit more with a decorative container. The haystack hanging baskets have the beauty of the coco fiber lined planters, but require half the watering. The AquaSav liner is a combination of coir and recycled plastic designed to conserve moisture. This means better results with less watering. But dont stop there. Add some dwarf fruit trees to your patio plantings. A dwarf apple, peach or pear will provide beautiful spring flowers, nice foliage for the summer and fruit for you to enjoy. Select self-fertile varieties, those that only require one plant to produce fruit, if space is limited. Grow your dwarf trees in large weather-proof pots with drainage. Those in cold climates will need to provide some winter protection, but the first harvest will make that extra bit of work well worth the effort. Or try your green thumb at growing lemons, limes and other citrus in a container. The fragrant flowers and glossy green leaves are a beautiful prelude to the tasty fruit. Even cold weather gardeners can put their green thumb to the test by growing a Meyer lemon, Kaffir lime or other citrus in a container. Just move the potted plant indoors for the winter and back outdoors next season once the danger of frost has passed. And dont forget the blueberries that are high in antioxidants and flavor. These nutritious beauties require moist well-drained acidic soil. Something most gardeners do not have. This makes growing them in containers, where you control the soil, a good option. Blueberries provide seasonal interest with their nodding white bell-shaped flowers in spring, colorful fruit in summer and yellow, orange or red color in fall. Though only one plant is needed to bear fruit, keep in mind that your harvest will more than double if you grow two. So survey your patio, deck, balcony or garden for space to add a container or two of fruiting plants that are sure to add beauty and flavor to your garden and meals this season.Gardening expert, TV/radio host, author & columnist Melinda Myers has more than 30 years of horticulture experience and has written more than 20 gardening books, including Cant Miss Small Space Gardening and the Midwest Gardeners Handbook. She hosts The Great Courses How to Grow Anything DVD series and the nationally syndicated Melindas Garden Moment segments.

How to build a local food community Finding local food sources can be a rewarding undertaking. On a two-lane roadway, you are required to slow to a speed that is 20 miles per hour less than the posted speed limit. If the speed limit is 20 miles per hour or less, you must slow down to five miles per hour. If you are driving on an interstate or roadway with multiple lanes of travel in the same direction, and you approach an emergency or law enforcement vehicle parked along the roadway, you must vacate the lane closest to that vehicle as soon as it is safe to do so. If you are not able to safely move over, you must slow down to a speed of 20 mph below the posted speed limit unless directed otherwise by a law enforcement officer. Move Over Law

WWW.GADCOTIMES.COMTHEGADSDENCOUNTYTIMES THURSDAY, MAY29, 2014 A13 TALLAHASSEE Newly wed, newly engaged or even just downsizing to a smaller living space merging his and hers into one cohesive space can be a challenge. Carpet One Floor & Home has pulled together eight decorating tips that will make a new space beautiful without ditching anyones favorite things. Common Ground. Look for similarities in your design preferences and emphasize those things you both enjoy, rather than focusing on your differences. Perhaps theres a common color scheme, or an artist or art style you both enjoy. Explore design ideas and advice by searching online and creating a Pinterest board. You can each pin items off each others boards onto a shared New Home board. Something Old, Something New. As youre merging existing furnishings, determine any key pieces you may be missing and splurge on something new that you both love. First determine the top renovations or furnishings that will best improve your home, and then figure out a style that will suit both your tastes. New cabinets, flooring or lighting, for example, can give your home a fresh new look one that you created together as a couple and can also add to the value when it comes time for resale. Meet In The Middle. Since your homes interior has to satisfy two people, try to find the point of compromise. If you like a traditional plush carpet and he prefers a hardwood floor, choose an oversized area rug to display on a hardwood floor surface. The experts at your local Carpet One Floor & Home store can help mediate and offer solutions to such flooring quibbles. No-Critique Zone. Sometimes you have to put aside your differences in another room or space, that is. If theres no reconciling certain points of design disagreement, you might opt for a designated room or area for each person, filled with their favorite collectibles or furnishings. Try to keep the eyerolling to a minimum in these no-critique zones! Create Traditions. Hes not into your collection of pressed butterflies, and youre not too keen about his beloved baseball cards. Create your own tradition of collecting something you both treasure, perhaps souvenirs from your travels together, or your personal collection of holiday ornaments, or a music library of favorite CDs. An Eclectic Mix. Conformity in decorating can be dull and boring, so embrace your different tastes into an eclectic mix that gives your home a unique style. For example, merge his contemporary leather furnishings with your vintage pillows and rugs and create a habitat that works for you both. To keep your new home cohesive overall, keep a piece from each of you in each space. No Time Limit. Dont be too quick to consign his sports paraphernalia or her antique book collection to the trash or thrift store. Theres no rush to find your happy medium. Keep sifting through accessories and rearranging your combined furniture for as long as it takes until it feels right for both of you, which could be anywhere from six months to a year. Home Sweet Home. Throughout the decorating process, keep in mind that youll be sharing wonderful memories in your first home together, regardless of the color of the walls or the design of the ceramic tiles. And as you grow together, your tastes will likely change and possibly converge, so dont fret. Whats really important is that you are sharing your beautiful new home together hold onto that thought and everything else becomes a lot simpler. For ideas, inspiration and expert advice, visit Carpet One Floor & Homes Beautiful Design Made Simple Blog. Or visit your local store to discover a beautiful new floor you will both love. Four must-haves for every wedding Watch any of the popular wedding reality shows Say Yes to the Dress, My Big Fat American Gypsy Wedding, Four Weddings and the common denominator is money. The focus has always been on saving, borrowing or budgeting so that the bride can have her perfect wedding, says Eric Gulbrandson, a wedding photographer and author of the new book, Dream Wedding Secrets: The All Important G.S.F, (www.dreamweddingsecrets.com), But weddings now cost more than ever for the guests the average cost jumped 75 percent over the past two years! Wedding guests now spend an average $592 per wedding on clothing, gifts, transportation, hotels, etc., up from $339 in 2012, according to a just-published American Express survey. If you want people to actually attend, you have to make sure its the perfect wedding for them, too, says Gulbrandson, whose book is a compilation of tips for doing just that based on interviews with hundreds of wedding guests. Gulbrandson shares four must-haves for achieving a high G.S.F Guest Satisfaction Factor:Have plenty of food and drink. If you have to choose between paying for more food versus paying for better food, go for quantity. Nobody will mind if the foods not stellar, but they will if you run out! Taste and presentation are important, but having enough food and drink and having it available throughout the event is more important, Gulbrandson says. I had one woman who said that, toward the end of one reception, the caterers brought out a nacho bar. She said, It was cheap and perfect! he says. Have details that show appreciation. One woman I interviewed talked about being greeted by trays of hors doeuvres and champagne as soon as they arrived for the wedding, and how it made the guests feel appreciated, Gulbrandson says. Another went to a wedding in a foreign country. The bride and groom had a welcome bag filled with helpful items, like a survival translation dictionary, insect repellant and maps of the local area in the hotel rooms for their guests as they arrived. When people take the time and expense to attend your wedding, details that show how much you appreciate that go over very well, Gulbrandson says.Have on hand whatevers necessary to make people comfortable while they wait. One couple Gulbrandson interviewed talked about arriving at the reception venue following the wedding and waiting for more than two hours for the bride and groom. Not only was there no food or drink available while they waited, there was no entertainment or information about when the wedding party would arrive. When they finally did arrive, it was clear theyd all been out drinking and joyriding in their limo, Gulbrandson says. Many of their guests had left! Some delays are unavoidable: Photos taken after the wedding, for instance, can delay the reception. Make sure food and drink is available for those waiting, and entertainment, Gulbrandson says. It could be an acoustic musician or a disc jockey, and slide shows of the bride and groom growing up.Have entertainment that almost everyone can enjoy. Usually, the choice is between a live band or a DJ. Since DJs can usually provide more musical variety than a band, they stand a better chance of giving all of your guests a good time. A DJ can play music that appeals to different generations and different styles of music, Gulbrandson says. One compromise, if youd really like a band, is to have live music for an hour or two, then switch to the DJ although thats not the most economical choice! Gulbrandson also recommends taking the time to choose your own music rather than giving the DJ carte blanche. Be sure to choose songs from a variety of genres and styles. If there are some wedding standards you dislike, create a do not play list for the DJ. Eric Gulbrandson is a longtime wedding photographer who began compiling interviews for Dream Wedding Secrets: The AllImportant G.S.F, (www.dreamweddingsecrets.com), in 2009. As a wedding photographer, he heard many happy guests and many unhappy ones and realized that most publications offering wedding advice focused on making the bride and wedding more beautiful, or saving money. He interviewed hundreds of guests and includes more than 200 of their quotes about essential Guest Satisfaction Factors. To make a wedding genuinely memorable for the right reasons, keep guests in mind, new book advises.

Ri ddl e Q: What starts with a d, ends with a d and has a d in the middle that makes you turn your car around? A: A dead end. HIDDEN PICTURE This game is played a lot like hide and seek but backwards, which is what the Spanish name means. The person that is it goes and hides, and everyone else has to find the person that is it. When you find the person, you hide with them quietly. The last person to find it is the new it. You can also have the first person to find it be the new it. In the United States, this game is called Sardines because you are packed into the hiding place like a can of sardines. Where in the World ? Hispanics are people whose families came over from Spain in southwestern Europe. Latinos come from South America, Central America or the Caribbean. While many Latinos are also Hispanic, some are not. COLOR THE PICTURE The capital of Spain is Madrid. The symbol of Madrid is a brown bear standing against a fruit tree. There are very few bears left in Spain today, though, and the last ones may be extinct soon. This most famous brown bear can be found in the Puerta del Sol in Madrid. Central America El Dorado is the name of the mythical city of gold that many Spanish explorers spent time looking for from shortly after Columbus discovery of the New World in 1492 until almost 200 years later. The story of the city of gold came from a tribal chief in South America who covered himself with gold dust for a ceremony to become the tribes leader. The reports of the golden chief grew into stories of a golden city known as El Dorado. Spanish explorers, known as conquistadores explored much of Central and South America looking for El Dorado. In their searches, they mapped large portions of the Americas and found their way to the Pacific Ocean, which had never been seen from the east. The Spanish who came to find El Dorado spread their Spanish culture throughout these areas and defeated many of the native tribes. The explorers were always convinced that they were close to El Dorado. As they kept exploring, they began to run out of room for El Dorado to hide. Finally, they had explored Central and South America and failed to find it. At this point, the Spanish controlled a large amount of the American continents and had explored a great section of the Western Hemisphere, including parts of the Pacific Ocean. This need to explore was driven in part by the myth of El Dorado. South America
other issue is that the researchers did not look at neurological effects such as changes in learning, memory and behavior. What needs to follow is whether these exposures are causing neurobehavioral changes, Harvard epidemiologist Joe Braun told Environmental Health News, adding that previous research has shown that estrogen receptors in the brains of rats were triggered by low doses of BPA. Hopefully (the FDA) will address that down the road. More research is underway still. The February 2014 FDA study is part of an ongoing two-year assessment of the toxicity of BPA. Dozens of university studies are also in progress to shed more light on just how risky our use of BPA may be. Consumers should continue to take precautions to limit their intake of BPA by avoiding polycarbonate plastic food and drink containers and metal cans, and by refraining from putting plastic items in the microwavea process that can expedite the leaching of BPA into food.

Community Action is hosting the 15-week program in six of the eight counties it provides services to, where more than 70,000 residents live in poverty. More than 70 percent of the participants in the first two classes offered in Tallahassee have gained full-time jobs or are pursuing the education and skills necessary to become independent of public assistance. Our neighbors in poverty are the future workforce for businesses wanting to expand and companies wanting to relocate, said Tim Center, Community Action Agencys executive director. They can become customers and part of our economy if we give them the skills and opportunity needed to make the transformation. Capital Area Community Action Agency, a $9 million community service organization, is one of 36 similar agencies in Florida and one of 1,000 in the country responsible for administering the federal safety net designed to help move people out of poverty. The agency served more than 13,000 people last year, helping families keep their lights on, increasing the energy efficiency of homes, offering robust child development services in Head Start and offering programs such as Getting Ahead.

EVENTSContinued from Page A3 Weve developed a nice friendship with Shirley and Al, and they love to take us out to dinner and other places. We love helping our neighbors. Jerry and Mary, also older than us, live directly across the street and have allowed us to help them out on a few occasions. It took me three visits to their yard and fiddling with their sprinkler system to get it running the way they requested. They are so good. When Im working at the sprinkler box, studying the instructions on the inside of the sprinkler box cover, Jerry brings me a small step stool to sit on and allows me to be by myself. Like I tell him, I might not get it at first, Jerry; just let me plug along at my own pace, and well see what happens. Now Shirleys not that way. She stands right over us, watching and occasionally giving advice or her 2 cents worth. However, she lets Judy and I do as we best see fit with any of the tasks we are performing for her. My very handy brother-in-law Ken, my sister Claires husband, and she were down for a short visit from Connecticut a few days ago. Hes the one who informed me that I didnt know how to tie my shoestrings. Of course, it was Judy who had to show me how. I made a crack to him that I just knew hed get a kick out of: Why, Ken, down in these parts, Im almost a handyman. He looked at me rather bemusedly and flashed a big grin. He was good though; he didnt laugh out loud. God bless you. WILLISContinued from Page A4 BPA exposure has been linked to a host of human health issues, including cognitive and behavioral development in young children. These concerns have led the European Union, Canada and more recently the U.S. to ban the use of BPA in baby bottles and other items geared toward babies and children. Photo by Coralie Mercier, courtesy Flickr EARTHContinued from Page A4 Of course, this change in the working conditions and economic circumstances of college and university faculty is not unusual. In 1969, tenured and tenuretrack faculty comprised 78 percent of all instructional staff in higher education. Today that situation has been turned on its head, and the American Association of University Professors estimates that 76 percent of college and university instructors are contingents, adjuncts, and graduate students. Consequently, most college and university teachers are now in an economically marginal status. The plight of the faculty is particularly remarkable at the 25 public universities with the highest-paid presidents, where its growing marginality occurred in the context of soaring incomes for the top administrators. And the inequality may be even greater at private universities, where a great many more presidents have outlandish incomes. According to the data provided by the Chronicle of Higher Education, there were 14 times as many private as public university presidents receiving more than a million dollars each in 2011 (the latest year for which statistics seem to be available). Consequently, the enrichment of top administrators, coupled with the shift to adjunct and contingent faculty, means economic inequality is thriving on private campuses, as well. Students comprise another university constituency faring poorly. The rapidly-rising tuition at public and private institutions has sent student debt climbing to unprecedented levels. In 2012, students owed a staggering $1.2 trillion, an amount that surpassed Americans credit card debt. Indeed, it is estimated that, in 2013, 71 percent of college seniors who graduated had student loan debt, with an average of $29,400 per borrower. Meanwhile, university spending on scholarships lagged far behind spending on non-academic administration, such as executive administration, general university administration, legal and fiscal operations, public relations and development. Between fiscal 2007 and fiscal 2012, the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities reduced spending on scholarships by 55 percent while increasing spending on non-academic administration by 44 percent. Looked at in the framework of individual campuses, it is a disturbing picture. From fiscal 2010 to fiscal 2012, Ohio State paid its president a total of $5.9 million. Student debt soared, rising 46 percent from summer 2006 to summer 2011. From fall 2005 to fall 2011, the number of adjunct and contingent faculty increased 62 percent nearly three times faster than the national average. In fiscal 2012, Penn State awarded $2.9 million in salary and severance pay to its disgraced president. From fiscal 2006 to fiscal 2012, it provided another $4.8 million in executive compensation, while student debt grew by 49 percent. From fiscal 2010 to fiscal 2012, the University of Michigan paid its top executive more than $2.6 million. The number of its adjunct and contingent faculty grew by 1,777, or 64 percent, between fall 2005 and fall 2011, and by the summer of 2012 student debt was well above the national average. Overall, then, higher education seems to be following the general pattern of modern American life one that favors the wealthy at the expense of everyone else.Lawrence Wittner (http://lawrenceswittner.com), syndicated by PeaceVoice, is Professor of History emeritus at SUNY/Albany.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. Florida A&M University (FAMU) President Elmira Mangum, Ph.D., called for alumni support and action while mapping out her university priorities during the Annual FAMU National Alumni Association Convention in Louisville, Ky. In response, the energized group of more than 200 alumni from across the nation demonstrated their allegiance by raising more than $100,000 at the Presidents Fundraising Breakfast. Chapters, individual alumni, university staff, and even students, contributed checks and pledge cards for scholarships and unrestricted funds. At FAMU, great things are happening every day and we want to continue that legacy of excellence with the support of our alumni,said Mangum. Their contributions are critical to help us accomplish our goals to improve the student experience and enhance the university infrastructure. During the convention, the Leon County Chapter based in Tallahassee, Fla., was recognized for having the most members and life members, a total of 154, for 2013. The Sarasota Chapter was recognized for the highest increase in membership at 165 percent. Those who missed the convention still have time to get in on the action. The FAMU Office of Communications has launched the Down for Life Rattler Challenge to encourage more FAMUans to become life members in the alumni association. All alumni who pay their one-time payment of $750 by July 31 will be entered into a drawing to receive a FAMU Swag Bag of paraphernalia. We want to invite every alumnus who loves FAMU to make the commitment to be down for lifeand support the university in a meaningful way,said Alonda Thomas, interim chief communications officer. We look forward to highlighting the 2014 life members in the next issue of the A&M Magazine, just in time for homecoming.

Come see us at our new location: 25040 Blue Star Hwy 850-627-7216 TERRANCE CHISOLMTimes Sports CorrespondentThe Panthers didnt have much time to reflect on their loss to FAMU High, as they took the field to play their second scrimmage against the Marauders of Maclay High School. West Gadsden experienced a turbulent start as their troubles along the offensive line continued, which resulted in Qwnatrezz Knight being sacked on the third play of the opening series. MaClays offense came onto the field and began to quickly impose their will on the Panthers as they reeled off several big plays that led to a score on a screen pass within the red zone with 6:07 left in the first quarter. West Gadsden was never able to get into an offensive rhythm and found themselves down 7-0 as the second quarter began. The Panthers fumbled on the first play of the second period, and the Marauders capitalized about 90 seconds later with a successful field goal attempt that extended their lead by a score of 10-0. West Gadsdens mental mistakes and turnovers continued to accumulate throughout the second quarter. Maclay never let off the gas as they repeatedly cashed in on the Panthersmisfortunes and built a 24-0 lead with 7:21 left in the game. West Gadsden continued to fight through their tough times and began to put together a nice offensive drive with a little more than four minutes left to play, which resulted in a rushing touchdown from inside Maclays 10-yard line with about two minutes left to play. Inspite of their effort in the final minutes,West Gadsden lost their second scrimmage 24-7. Lets lend our support to the Panthers as they continue prepare for next season. forced fumbles, one quarterback hurry and two pass breakups as a gifted outside linebacker. Against the University of Oklahoma in Norman, Okla., he posted six tackles. In 2013, he was virtually un-blockable. He collected 59 tackles, with 38 solos and 21 assists. He also accumulated four sacks and 12 tackles for loss. This makes five former FAMU players in camps with NFL teams. Kevin Elliott played last season with the Buffalo Bills, Brian Tyms played last season with the Cleveland Browns and Travis Harvey signed a free agent contract earlier this year with the New York Giants. RATTLERSContinued from Page A5 Their gymnasium also reached capacity. A crowd formed outside the gymnasium and when people left during the ceremony, they were told they could not be guaranteed re-admittance. Walter McNeil, chief of the Quincy Police Department, spoke at the West Gadsden commencement. He acknowledged the difficulties in the years ahead for the new graduates and he urged them to avoid self-defeat before even having a chance to face these challenges. Punctuated by applause from the bleachers, he asked the class of 2014 to vow they would never spend a moment in jail. He also asked them to make sure they dont become parents before they are prepared. The chief reminded the graduates worthy pursuits are seldom easy. He told them they would have to go out and tackle life. Ashley Grimes, WGHSs valedictorian, called attention in her speech to the painfully finite period of time she and her classmates each have in life and spurred them to do the most and best they can with it. Tallavana Christian SchoolTallavana Christian School had their commencement at 6 p.m. on May 22 at Centenary United Methodist Church in Quincy. The ceremony combined the schools graduation and baccalaureate event. We are about to face the real world, said Tayler Stephens, Tallavanas valedictorian. Now is the time to put everything we have learned into practice. Stephens, noticeably moved by the occasion, asked her classmates to recognize the value of the time they spent growing together at school and at home. Let nothing we have learned and experienced be wasted, said Stephens. Take every precious moment we have had and treasure it.Robert F. Munroe Day SchoolRobert F. Munroe Day School held their commencement at 7:30 p.m. on May 22 at the Leaf Theatre in Quincy. The 12 graduates sat in a row across the stage as they received various academic and extra-curricular honors for their performance at RFM. Blake Norman, RFMs valedictorian, told the audience there was no sadness in this particular goodbye because he and his classmates were eager and excited to move on.

Lisa Robinson, principal of Stewart Street Elementary, explained the school staff has received professional development training to help the students reach higher levels of performance in both subjects. We meet on a weekly basis, analyzing data, making sure we know our students strength and weaknesses, said Robinson, explaining the results of these regular reviews help guide the schools allocation of resource and direction of training for teachers, paraprofessionals and even parents. Were going to continue doing what were doing, she said. Were seeing steady growth over the years. We have stability. The teachers that we have here are invested in our school. Theyve been here for years so theyre able to know the population the demographic of students we have. And so were just building on what weve continued to do in the past. FCATContinued from Page A1 ROBERT ALLENTimes Reporter Dr. Larry Helm and Dr. Beth May are planning a grand opening on May 30 for the new extension to their animal hospital on West Jefferson Street in Quincy. Helm, a University of Florida graduate and owner of the practice, has been a veterinarian in Quincy for 25 years and he has no plans to stop any time soon. This is my second addition since Ive been here, said Helm, who purchased the facility already configured as an animal hospital after practicing there at the beginning of his career for two years under a different owner. Helms practice, which dealt with large animals at one time, now works almost exclusively with dogs and cats. Im seeing thirdor fourth-generation pets, so its cool, said Helm. We see them cradle to the grave for several generations. The veterinarian said the extension, which primarily expanded the capacity and efficiency of reception, was something the business has needed for a long time. Before beginning the project he reviewed the operation, looking for what aspect of the business was in greatest need of improvement. Helm said he and May asked, What slows us down? What stops us from being able to see more patients? With this expansion, Helm and May have been able to more effectively serve more animals in the community and consider hiring new employees. The small town is different, said Helm about the dynamics of practicing veterinary medicine in Gadsden County. Its more personal. You have more of a relationship with both your patients and your client, I think. And that just suits me. Were pretty informal here. Thats always been how it works for us. Helm said when he does retire he would look to sell the practice to May, providing a degree of continuity for local clients and their animals. While not part of his immediate or even future plans, Helm also acknowledged the possibility of hiring a third doctor if necessary. He said this is now an option with the addition of a third exam room. Dr. Larry Helm carries a dog back into his facilitys new reception area.
