ROBERT ALLENTimes ReporterLaughs were in no short supply at the Roast and Toast of Superintendent Reginald James on June 14 as one speaker after another delivered monologues about the superintendents finest achievements and idiosyncratic quirks. The event at East Gadsden High School was designed to honor the school official through comedy and anecdotes shared by some of those closest to him. James and his wife, Betty, sat at a table on the far said of the stage, where the superintendent had a clear view of the crowd and the crowd had a clear view of him, waiting to watch his reaction to even the most embarrassing jokes. Curtis Richardson, one of the toasters and the districts science specialist, reflected about his familys long-standing friendship with the James family, remembering years ago when he would visit James guidance office and the two would sit down together in the tiny chairs for a chat. We would always run things by each other, said Richardson. With all humor aside, Richardson spoke sincerely about James performance as a superintendent: Ill leave you all with this because this is one of the things that Reginald tells all of us all the time and those people that are still around, you must be on that winning team because hell tell you in a heartbeat, I dont lose twice with the same team, and those of us who work with the school district know what he means by that. He expects the best out of all of us for the kids of Gadsden County. Willie Johnson, one of the roasters and a former business associate of James, joked about the difficulty of writing his monologue. No, actually, Im telling the truth, he said. I didnt know what to say. In fact, I said, What great thing can you say THURSDAY, JUNE19, 2014 WWW.GADCOTIMES.COM VOLUME113/ISSUE25 50 20 PAGES, 1 SECTIONNew Rattler basketball coach/A5 000HEVF ROBERT ALLENTimes Reporter Saving money and making money were on the minds of Quincy commissioners at the regular June 10 meeting. Members of the commission discussed a continuation of their expired contract with the Whitfield Timber Company for the harvesting of trees in the citys industrial park. The city and the company signed the initial agreement during October 2013. Mike Wade, interim city manager, said a combination of bad weather and equipment failure inhibited the company from completing the logging project on schedule. The new contract will extend the companys access to the land and the timber until June 30. Wade estimated $10,000 of timber was still available on the land. He also said about $100,000 had already been harvested. Commissioner Derek Elias asked if there were any advantage to signing a new contract rather than simply continuing to operate under the terms set in place by the expired document. John Grant, city attorney, said, I thought it was advantageous to reset an end-date. Elias asked if there would be any divergence between the expired contract and the proposed contract. Grant said only the date would change. Commissioner Andy Gay motioned to sign the new contract. Commissioner Daniel McMillan seconded the motion. It passed unanimously. The city also discussed securing a new telecommunications service. Early in the evening, Emmanuel Sapp spoke to the commissioners about the importance of forward-thinking investment and ownership. He argued future generations of Quincy residents would benefit from controlling their own telecommunications. Later in the evening, after a short Reginald JamesGadsden superintendent of schools.

According to a QPD press release, at about 9 p.m. June 11, officers on foot patrol reported seeing suspect Ron Howard walking on the secondfloor walkway of the Gadsden Arms Apartments located at 427 S. Stewart St. Knowing Howard had an open warrant for failure to appear in court, officers called to Howard to stop. At that point Howard ran and forced his way into a residents apartment uninvited and immediately climbed up into the attic. After an intense search over several hours it was determined that Howard had somehow exited the buildings attic at some other point, evading arrest. QPD is currently seeking the whereabouts of Ron Christopher Howard, 23. Howard has an open warrant for failure to appear and additional warrants for burglary of an occupied dwelling are being sought. Howards last known addresses are Peters Road in Midway and Quincy. Anyone with information on his whereabouts should call the Quincy Police Department at 850-627-7111 and ask for Capt. Troy Gilyard. You may also call Crime Stoppers at 850574TIPS (8477). Ron Howard Fleeing suspect crashes into patrol car ROBERT ALLENTimes ReporterA pre-dawn car chase through the city streets of Quincy turned to a foot pursuit before Gadsden County deputies and a Quincy police officer caught suspect Emmanuel Jerome Gordon, 28. According to the Gadsden County Sheriffs Office arrest report, Deputy Marcus Dixon was traveling westbound on Jefferson Street when he spotted a white Ford F-150, westbound, speeding and swerving. Dixon turned his patrol car around but, according to the report, Gordon continued to accelerate, running a traffic light at the intersection of Jefferson Street and Pat Thomas Parkway. According to the GCSO report, Gordon then turned left onto Ben Bostick Road and continued speeding. He tried to turn left onto Atlanta Street but Gordon missed the turn, driving along the shoulder before returning to the roadway and colliding with Dixons patrol car, which the deputy had stopped on Atlanta Street. Gordon then turned south onto Kingswood Road a dead end and, according to the report, continued at a high rate of speed. Before reaching that dead end, the suspect turned right onto Emmanuel Gordon See CHASE/ Page A2 Ribbed at roast Good-natured fundraiser puts Reginald James in the hot seat Bonnie Wood, a former comptroller with the Gadsden County School District, performs her comedic monologue, which she jokingly referred to as her vaudeville routine.

The Scottstown watch is part of a pilot program launched by the Gadsden County Sherriffs office. Jolene Williams, GCSOs crime analyst, was trained at the attorney generals office specifically to be part of the budding program. She said the community was selected as the location for the pilot program because it had a high rate of crime and high frequency of complaints. The program has now operated for a year and so far Williams said it has been very successful, yielding real results for the participating neighborhood. The crime rate has lowered, and the upkeep of the community has been enhanced, said Williams. A centerpiece of the initiative in Scottstown appears to be the public recreation area, which the watch is planning to use as the venue for a community party later this summer. Theyre rebuilding the park, said Williams. Theyve gone out and done a whole lot in the community. Clyde Collins, county parks director, and Brenda Holt, county commissioner, both attended the meeting to participate in the growing initiative. If people in other Gadsden County communities would like to establish a county-recognized watch program, Williams said all they need to do is call the sheriffs office to initiate the organization process. Williams said Greensboro residents may already be thinking about adopting a similar program. Robert Allen can be reached at 850-6277649 or rallen@ gadcotimes.com.

Dixon, who was able to read the trucks tag when Gordon wrecked into the patrol car, ran the number and discovered the vehicle was registered to an address on Martin Street. The suspect drove the truck into the backyard of this address and fled. At this point, according to the report, Deputy Buddy Knight arrived on the scene. Dixon directed Knight to Pine Tree Lane, the next street south of Martin, in an attempt to locate the suspect. As Dixon then began knocking on homeowners door to inform them of the situation, Lt. Howell from the Quincy Police Department arrived with his police dog, Fiego. According to the report, when Howell and the dog stepped on the scene, Dixon said he saw a man flee from the rear of the residence, jump over a fence in the backyard and run toward Pine Tree Lane where Knight was already waiting. The positioned deputy apprehended Gordon without further incident. A search of the truck yielded one plastic bag of marijuana and 16 suspected amphetamine pills, according to the report. According to a supplemental GCSO report, after his arrest, Gordon began trying to kick out the windows of the patrol car after being placed inside. He was then transferred to a different officers car, which had bars across the glass. Aside from a Leon County warrant for withholding child support and license suspension at the time of the incident, Gordon is now charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon without intent to kill, possession of amphetamines, possession of marijuana, resisting an officer and a moving traffic violation. CHASEContinued from Page A1 about a man like Reg who has not already said it himself? I couldnt come up with anything. School Board Member Isaac Simmons, a former classmate of James and another roaster, was one of several speakers who made punch lines about James marriage as well as his own. Simmons said, My wife and I were talking about our marriage. Ive been married 40 years. But Reg has me beat by a couple years, I think. But my wife and I were talking about our marriage and how long we had been together. And she looked at me and she said, Man, Ive had to deal with you for over 40 years Ive had to put up with your mess for over 40 years. And I kind of dropped my head. I kind of felt a little bad and then she smiled. She said, My God, what about Betty James? Other speakers throughout the evening included Shaia Simmons, Bonnie Wood, Morris Young, Bruce James, Jackie Pons, Betty James and the superintendent himself. Dinner was served during the course of the entertainment and every table in the hall was occupied. Proceeds from the event went toward the Gadsden Homeless Foundation and the Gadsden Education Foundation. If crowd reaction can be read as any reliable benchmark for performance, the evening was a clear success. Robert Allen can be reached at 850627-7649 or rallen@ gadcotimes.com. ROASTContinued from Page A1 ROBERT ALLENTimes ReporterMidway Police Chief Jerome Turner listened to area residents concerns at the June 14 Breakfast with the Chief event at the Best Western in Midway. The meetings provide an opportunity to interact face-to-face with Turner in a relaxed setting. The crowds are getting bigger, Turner said, acknowledging the breakfast events are becoming more popular. And Im getting more diverse questions. According to Turner, one notable trend in citizens questions at the June 14 event was a concern for manpower including what measures would be necessary to have more officers patrolling the city. Turner said the answer to having more officers is having more money. I do have a strategic plan and vision for the city, said Turner when addressing the entire group. With the spike in crime often associated with warmer weather and summer months, Turner said he had some new initiatives planned. One involves reinforcing the force in the field. Essentially Im pushing all my administrative staff out of the office and onto the streets, said Turner, noting this policy will includes himself. Weve outgrown a lot of our resources that were previously there, said the chief. Turner explained community involvement and investment can sometimes be difficult in a town like Midway a bedroom community, according Coffee leads to conversation in Midway Members of the crowd share a laugh during the roast in honor of Reginald James.

Where was the first Gadsden County courthouse located? How many different courthouses were built over the decades? Do you know what other functions the courthouse previously served? The Gadsden County Public Library System invites you to attend a special event to learn all about the History of the Gadsden County Courthouse at 5:30 p.m. Thursday, June 26, at the McGill Library. Architect Joe Munroe will present a multimedia lecture with stunning photographs revealing everything you always wanted to know about this symbolic centerpiece on the downtown Quincy square. Arson, war and bankruptcy are just a few of the highlights of Joes architectural journey through the many facades of the Gadsden County Courthouse during the years 1824 to 1913. His talk traces the history of all five of the local courthouses from the countys territorial beginnings in 1823 right up to the centennial celebration held last December. The first courthouse was built on a site as the new county seat in a town created for that purpose. The founding of Quincy in 1825 instigated a second courthouse. New research shines a light on the third forgotten courthouse and the horrors inflicted when the fourth was pressed into service as a Civil War hospital. Following Joes presentation, stick around for an author book talk at 6:30 p.m. about the new publication Images of America: Gadsden County written by David Gardner, Joe Munroe and Dawn McMillan. These three love history and are passionate about preserving the heritage of Gadsden County. Davids family was instrumental in introducing shade tobacco to the area.

As a sixth-generation Floridian who grew up in Quincy, Joe Munroe is a professional architect whos practiced in Washington, D.C., and Atlanta. His flair for design led him to pursue indepth research of local buildings. Dawn McMillan is a curator of an extensive archival collection. Her stewardship has shed invaluable insight into the countys development. For history buffs, hearing these three local writers promises to offer unique glimpses into Gadsden Countys past. Many of the photographs published in the book are from the authors private collections and from other Gadsden County families.

Guest column Integrity Florida On June 13, Florida Governor Rick Scott signed an inspectors general reform bill (HB 1385) into law. Inspectors general are the publics watchdogs within state government but they need more independence to do their jobs effectively, said Dan Krassner, executive director of the nonpartisan research institute and government watchdog group Integrity Florida. This law should reduce the influence of state agency heads over the internal government watchdogs who audit and investigate their agencies. Integrity Florida applauds Gov. Scott for signing this bill into law to hold government accountable. We commend Senator Jack Latvala and Representative Dan Raulerson for sponsoring HB 1385 to increase oversight of state operations and accountability for the publics money. Prior to implementation of HB 1385, state agency heads were able to appoint and remove their own inspectors general, which created built-in conflicts of interest. Agency heads and their deputies should not be able to prevent an inspector general from conducting an audit or investigation. The new law calls for inspectors general to instead report directly to the governors chief inspector general. The chief inspector general would make the appointment and removal (only for cause) decisions for the agency inspectors general. The reporting change is needed to help internal government watchdogs do their jobs with less fear of retribution from leaders of the agencies they investigate. Floridians are counting on internal watchdogs to root out fraud, waste and abuse within state government. HB 1385 passed the Florida Senate by a vote of 37-1 on May 1. The Florida House of Representatives approved the measure 114-0 on April 23. The new law will take effect on July 1, 2014. A4THEGADSDENCOUNTYTIMES THURSDAY, JUNE19, 2014 WWW.GADCOTIMES.COMIve been revived, feel very much alive, and the beat just goes on and on and on. Attending my first Christian revival a few weeks ago did have a positive effect on my life. Overall, I feel grateful and optimistic for strength and good health. As I was about to enter the house from my early morning exercise a few weeks ago my wife, Judy, stuck her head out the front door and gleefully shouted: Wait til you see the surprise Ive got for you. I figured she had made me an omelet or prepared some other delicious breakfast treat. She excitedly held up the spring edition of NEA Today for NEA Retired Members. This magazine is read by retired teachers throughout the country who have been members of educations largest teachers union, the NEA. Ed Graham is the magazine writer who called me one day out of the blue and asked if Id like to have an article written about myself and the writing Ive been doing since my retirement from teaching in 2001. I was more than happy to oblige. He then proceeded to conduct a telephone interview. It went well. Ed is such a nice and positive man who seemed genuinely interested in my writing career, especially after my retirement. He was very complimentary and asked if Id offer some helpful pointers for retired teachers who may also be interested in writing. The article in the magazine is entitled The Writing Life. It includes a picture of me taken from the back cover of my book, Staying Afloat. Mr. Graham decided he would give my book a plug. Surely you remember my writing about the book I had published in September 2013. We had a book signing at the William McGill Library in Quincy because Dr. Carolyn Poole and I figured some of my loyal newspaper column readers would be interested. I called it the Book Signing Where Nobody Came. Forgive me for rubbing salt into an old would, but Ive never gotten over that night. Whoops! I almost made another inaccurate statement: The signing was attended by Dr. Carolyn and my wife. And then just when I was ready to call it a night, 20 minutes after the starting time for the event, a lovely young lady decided to attend. However, she had not come for the book signing. She wandered in, actually. She had chosen to visit the library with her children and saw the attractive poster advertising the book signing outside the room where we would have had the event and decided to attend while she was visiting. I thanked her sincerely and autographed a free copy of my book for her. Ive given away far more books than Ive sold. I think, to date, my royalty checks from my publisher, Tate, have totaled a little more than $36. Ive a long way to go to recoup the $4,300 I had to pay up front. I figure thats many more books that I have to sell. Ive sold a few copies at a book signing that was given for me by my former Tallahassee church. Most of my friends who read the book shared that they really enjoyed it and that I should write a second one. I reminded them that I didnt social network and requested them to share their positive comments with someone they knew on Facebook or rate the book with a large company like Amazon in order to help me sell copies. However, most of my friends are old codgers, like me. Theyve no doubt forgotten all about the book by now so how could they plug it for me? My book promoter at Tate Publishing informed me that the magazine article Mr. Graham had written has already helped to increase book sales. Its nice that a few former teachers went out and purchased a book written by one of their own. Hope all is well with you and that you have some kind of revival of your own coming up soon if your spirits need inflating. God bless you. TERRY ONEILL and DON KRAUS American Forum There is a lot of talk these days about the importance of the women s vote for the 2014 elections. Democrats and Republicans alike are courting women voters Republicans are working as hard as they can to shed their anti-woman image stemming from the 2012 election cycle, while Democrats are working equally hard to shine as the party that fully supports womens equality. President Obama is in full courtship mode, speaking out on issues like the gender wage gap, workplace discrimination and sexual assault on college campuses. As well, perhaps, he should: he arguably owes his 2008 and 2012 wins to women voters, and neglecting them may have cost Democrats the House in 2010. But with control of Congress again at stake, the president should do something bolder to get women voters attention. One possibility is to call on the Senate to ratify the UN Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women, or the Womens Equality Treaty. Numerous polls show overwhelming support for the Treaty especially among young women and men. The Womens Equality Treaty is a landmark international agreement on fundamental human rights and equality for women everywhere. The United States helped draft the pact in the 1970s and signed it in 1981, but remains one of only seven countries that have not ratified it along with Iran, Sudan, South Sudan, Somalia and the two small Pacific Island nations of Palau and Tonga. These are embarrassing bedfellows. The United States has a long history of leading the global drive for womens rights. Eleanor Roosevelt helped ensure that the 1948 Universal Declaration on Human Rights included provisions on gender equality. The State Department, especially under former Secretary Hillary Clinton, worked to empower women in development, economics, post-conflict resolution and more. But it hasnt been enough. One in every three of the worlds women has suffered violent assault at some point in her life, and women worldwide are denied equal rights to education, health care, work, legal status and more. Even in the United States, problems like domestic violence, sexual assault and workplace discrimination disproportionately plague women. Ratifying this agreement will not fix these or any other inequalities by itself, but it will give womens rights advocates another tool to use in How to get and keep womens attention and support Letters to the editorOpinionIntegrity Florida Statement on Gov. Scott Signing Inspectors General Reform BillEducation should include healthy eating basicsKids dont make a lot of choices during their school day. From the first bell in the morning until they leave in the afternoon, they spend their days listening to adults tell them where to sit, what to study and what homework to complete. Theres one notable exception to all of this structure, though: meals and snacks. Whether theyre picking between entrees in the lunch line or choosing a drink from a vending machine, todays students have more choices for food and beverages than ever before. Unfortunately, not all of these choices are healthy ones and theyre having a real impact on our childrens health. In addition to whats sold in the main cafeteria line, many schools sell a la carte snacks, entrees and beverages. These extras tend to be lower in nutritional value and higher in calories, sugar, fat and sodium than foods served in school meal programs. Since many children consume up to 50 percent of their daily calories at school, and since nearly one in three American kids is overweight or obese, ensuring that school food choices are healthy choices is a major priority. Research has shown that eating better helps students perform better in school academically. And forming strong nutritional habits early will help lead to a lifetime of better eating habits. Fortunately, in June 2013 the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) released updated nutrition standards for all snack foods and beverages sold in schools. The standards will provide schools with the guidance to make every food and drink sold during the school day a healthy choice, and thats the kind of choice we should give our kids. The next step is creating state and local policies that will ensure these standards are implemented in order to make healthy snacks a reality in every school. We also need to make sure that our students who participate in afterschool activities have the same healthy choices after the final bell. The fundraisers and celebrations that occur also need healthy alternatives. Choice is a good thing. But when it comes to our kids, those choices should be healthy ones. Elevating nutritional standards for snack and a la carte foods and beverages will eliminate the least healthy food options for kids and replace them with food choices that compete without sacrificing nutrition. Thats the school food environment I want my kids to have. How about you?

Fat preference vs. real acceptance LAURA FINLEY PeaceVoice The risk with any kind of binary-thinking is that there is no real room for difference. You are one or the other. The U.S. loves its binaries: black or white, man or woman, gay or straight. Such thinking misses the complexities of people, limiting us all into narrow boxes. Perhaps nowhere is binarythinking more obvious today than in what has been called the fat acceptance movement. Building on decades of legitimate concern about body image and the ways women and girls are constantly taught they are too heavy, the fat acceptance movement has promoted a swing of the pendulum that is equally dangerous. Websites like Upworthy and Huffington Post repeatedly feature pictures and videos of women who are exerting their right to have more ample bodies. Ad nauseam, such sites reveal photo-shopped women and their real, less toned, bodies, mothers of four who wear with pride their sagginess, or heavier women wearing bikinis to show that it is OK. These images and articles are then re-posted on Facebook, tweeted across the universe and otherwise slammed in our faces. Of course it is OK to wear what you want despite your size! But thats not the point, or at least it shouldnt be. The goal of this fat acceptance movement, at least purportedly, is acceptance. To show it should not be our bodies that determine our character. Yet too often these images and the dialogue surrounding them say exactly that: It is, indeed, your body that matters most, and if you happen to be thin you are simply not accepted.

Munroe will enter into the upcoming football season under the leadership of their recently acquired Head Coach Jimmy Harris. Although this is his first year as the schools head football coach, Harris is no stranger to the Bobcat Nation; he lined up along the teams offensive and defensive lines in the 1970s. Prior to returning home, Harris had several assistant coaching jobs: He was the defensive line coach at Bainbridge High in 1990-95 and 1997-02, and in 1996 Harris was the defensive coordinator at James A. Shanks. Since taking over the team, Harris says he has seen standout efforts from the Bobcats offensive line as well as the skill position players. The teams summer workouts will include weightlifting, aerobic exercising and 7-7 drills. Robert F Munroes new leader said he plans to build onto the school football program and improve upon last years 7-3 record. Were going to teach them to put forth their best effort and show them that anything worth doing you should do it right. Were going to give thorough instruction to our players, he said, and give them a good opportunity to be successful. According to Harris, Bobcat fans can look forward to seeing a team that plays hard. We will be a bunch that you will want to pull for. Lets lend or support to the Bobcats as they prepare to step onto the field next season under the guidance of Coach Harris. Tips for Crappie Lure ColorsLure color is important when it comes to catching crappie. Sometimes, only one color will catch sh; other times several colors work. But sorry folks, there are no precise rules to follow. You can try matching the Lure to the color of the water. For example, lime or metallic green in greenish water, motor oil or yellow on yellowish lakes, white or blue when the water is clear. Some anglers like the contrast of bright colors in dark water and dark colors in light water. If you are not carrying a wide variety of colors, youre making a big mistake. Just keep trying different colors until the crappie let you know what they want. Also, crappies may hit a particular color for a little while, then quit. You may think the sh have stopped biting or moved away but before leaving that spot, try switching colors.By Larry Whiteley, Host of the award-winning Outdoor World Radio For more tips go to basspro.com and click on 1Source News & Tips Former Bobcat returns to coach at alma mater Community basketball Rushing toward the basket, a Turn it Upplayer redirects his course to keep the ball out of the Lake Monsters hands.

On Easter, my husband and I visited a church in Tampa. Located smack in the middle of the nightclub district of Ybor City, its an urban church that attracts young people with its industrial warehouse look, its nightclub lighting, loud rock music, free food and emphasis on Jesus rather than the extraneous stuff that doesnt matter. As my friend Steve would say, the place smelled like Jesus. And thanks to a pair of complimentary ear plugs offered to us as we walked in, we thoroughly enjoyed the service. Last Sunday we went back. On that day, the entire service was about communion. The pastor talked about how Jesus invited his closest friends to a Passover meal, the one we call the Last Supper, the one that took place the night before he died. At that meal, first Jesus washed his friends feet. Then he broke the bread and gave a piece to each man present at the table, even the one who would betray him. He told them, This bread is my body, which is broken for you. Next, he lifted up the goblet of wine and said, This is my blood, the new covenant between God and his people (1 Corinthians 11:24,25 my paraphrase). Jesus also told them, Whenever you eat this bread and drink this wine, do it in remembrance of me. The pastor said thats what communion is for, for remembering Jesus. He said that as we go about our lives and our busyness, its not so much that we forget Jesus, but that we forget to remember him. That statement struck me: We I forget to remember Jesus. We are prone to spiritual memory loss, the pastor said. We forget that he still performs miracles; he still gives us hope; he still gives new life. And he asked us to remember him. A few years ago, I wrote a column about trying to remember Jesus. I had felt the memory of him fading, and I desperately wanted to get it back. So, I picked up my dusty Bible and flipped through its pages and re-remembered his compassion for the immoral women of his day, how kindly he treated them as he offered them forgiveness and dignity. I re-remembered how he raised the dead only son of a poor widow, brought a little girl back to life, cast demons out of a man and made the blind to see. I re-remembered his words, Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest, Your sins are forgiven and Take courage. It is I. Dont be afraid. This morning, too, still tasting in my memory the bread and the tart grape juice of last Sundays communion, I purposed to remember Jesus. As I dressed for work and dried my hair, as I packed my lunch and backed my car out of the garage, as I stopped to get gas and drove away, I remembered how he has never forgotten me. Thats what the pastor had said. That even when we forget to remember him, Jesus never forgets us. He always remembers his own. I remembered how Jesus has remembered me. Even before I knew him, he knew me and was with me, remembering me when I was young and lonely and afraid. All the times I chose to do wrong, all the times I tried in vain to control the universe without him, all the times I turned to a lesser god for comfort and meaning that inevitably failed me, he remembered me. This is what I wrote on Christmas Eve 2009: Its Christmas, and Im trying hard to remember Jesus, to think about how he set aside his glory and entered the world as a helpless human, to remember his poverty, the lowliness he chose to endure all because he remembered me. Because he remembered me, he suffered. He died. Because he remembered me, he was buried. He rose. He remembered me from the beginning, remembered me all through my life, and even if I try to forget him, I cant. Last Sunday, we had communion. We walked up to the front of the warehouse church, lights dimmed, music loud. We took the bread that was broken, as Jesus was broken, and dipped it into the substitutionary blood that was shed for us. As we did, we remembered Jesus, remembered him because he first remembered us.Nancy Kennedy is the author of Move Over, Victoria I Know the Real Secret, Girl on a Swing, and her latest book, Lipstick Grace.

EVENTSContinued from Page A3 pressing legislators and employers to fix them, using our usual democratic processes. And because we have not joined 187 other countries in ratifying the Womens Equality Treaty, America is blocked from many conversations about womens rights around the world. The UNs committee on the Womens Equality Treaty, for example, oversees treaty implementation, issuing nonbinding recommendations for action toward gender equality. But committee members can only come from countries that are parties to the treaty. This means we cannot contribute our wide experience or our otherwise strong UN presence to promoting the rights of women. Until we ratify this agreement, we cant use all the tools available to combat violence and discrimination based on gender. And the treaty is just that a tool. Some argue that ratification would threaten U.S. sovereignty, but thats a red herring the United States has ratified similar treaties under presidents of both parties with no such problem. The real problem is that some senators flat-out oppose equal rights for women, and President Obama could galvanize women voters by saying so. In an election year, a ratification campaign would ignite instant controversy and excitement. But it might also generate bipartisan support in the Senate, where two-thirds of those present and voting would be needed for ratification. As the president is routinely pointing out these days, U.S. women still are only paid an average of 77 cents for every dollar paid to a man, and they make up only 19 percent of members of Congress. We believe voters deserve a clear opportunity to know which of their senators truly are willing to make womens equality a priority. Malala Yousafzai, the Pakistani teenager shot by the Taliban for defending girls education, said, Some people only ask others to do something. I believe that, why should I wait for someone else? Why dont I take a step and move forward? Calling for Senate ratification of the Womens Equality Treaty would be that step for President Obama.

Photo submitted BEN CARPENTER You understand that youll need to structure your professional emails differently than you would a text or a tweet. But unless you had the good fortune to take an Email Etiquette 101 course in college, you might be unsure of what, exactly, you should and shouldnt do before clicking send. Here, author Ben Carpenter clears up the cyber-confusion by sharing a few tips for effective email communication: n Read your email carefully before sending it. It takes only a few seconds to glance back over what youve written before clicking send but those few seconds could save you a lot of grief! Specifically, Carpenter advises you to: Make sure that youve entered the correct email addresses. Confirm that youve included all of the necessary information and proactively answered any questions that readers might have. Look for and correct any typos. Avoid using the BCC feature. The BCC feature allows you to blind copy individuals on an email. In other words, if you BCC John, hell see what you sent (and may even receive any replies to the email), but the emails other recipients wont know that John was included. Unless youre specifically instructed to BCC certain people, Carpenter advises against using this feature because it can often be construed as promoting dishonesty and a lack of transparency. For instance, if people find out after the fact that John was BCCed, they may feel that you were allowing him to spy on a closed conversation. Reply to the right people. Say your supervisor emails the whole department and asks for the previous months billing for a certain client. In this situation, every single one of your coworkers doesnt need to know how many hours you spent on which projects, so it would make sense to avoid clicking reply all and reply only to your supervisor. But say youre on a tenperson team responsible for completing a project. If your reply to a group email concerns everyone, reply all would be appropriate. Dont overcomplicate things, says Carpenter just use common sense before sending. Keep it brief. While email doesnt have a character limit, its still a good idea to keep your communication as brief as possible. This will help prevent your email from becoming confusing. Moreover, the recipient will appreciate not having to spend any more time than necessary reading it. Remember, your colleagues and clients want pertinent information, not your version of the great American novel. Get straight to the point. Dispense with the introductions and preambles. When youre writing an email, include the most important information at the top. This will enable the recipient to immediately ascertain what the email is about. Plus, points out Carpenter, no one appreciates having to dig through several paragraphs to figure out why someone is writing. Email etiquette for Generation Text See EMAIL / Page A16

WWW.GADCOTIMES.COMTHEGADSDENCOUNTYTIMES THURSDAY, JUNE19, 2014 A9 FAMILY FEATURES Whenever friends and family gather to celebrate warm weather days, potato salad is probably the most popular side dish served. However, the traditional salad made with mayonnaise and eggs that we all know and love is being passed by for lighter versions that include more vegetables, different protein sources and healthier dressings. Simple sides The best part is these salads are easy to make. Cut your Idaho potatoes into 1-inch cubes with the skins still on. Boil in water for about 8 minutes, then check for doneness by piercing a cube with a fork or skewer. If it goes through with little resistance, drain the potatoes and return them to the pot. Add your favorite dressing and ingredients while the potatoes are still warm. Warm potatoes more easily absorb all the delicious dressing. Fix ahead dishes These decadent dishes are best eaten the day after theyre made. This gives the flavors a chance to intensify and come together. When youre ready to serve, keep your cold salad the perfect temperature by placing your serving dish in a larger bowl filled with ice. Treat your family to potato salads theyve never tasted before.

COACHContinued from Page A5 BASSContinued from Page A5 discussion, Daniel McMillan who labeled Netquincy a losing proposition during the May 27 meeting motioned to issue a request for proposals (RFP), seeking an outside telecommunications provider. Commissioner Andy Gay seconded the motion. After Commissioner Keith Dowdell asked for specific assurance that the results from the RFP would return to the commissioners for consideration, the motion went to a vote and passed unanimously. The continuation of public transportation in the city and beyond remained a topic inspiring a certain degree of consternation. Dowdell said he didnt think the city had a clear enough picture of its financial situation to make any decision on public transportation at the June 10 meeting. Gay said he agreed with Dowdell but the September expiration date of the current contract might demand quicker action. In light of this timeline, he suggested considering alternative plans and contractors. Dowdell also expressed concern about an inadequate amount of feedback from the residents most affected by public transportation. I think we need to stop making hasty decisions without getting input from the people that actually need the service, said Dowdell. Previously, the city has split the expense with the county each paying about $38,000. Most recent discussions have considered this factor. At the June 10 meeting, however, after a discussion pursued by Gay about considering a broader range of options and negotiating a more cost-effective arrangement, commissioners reached a consensus to possibly operate independently of the county. Accordingly, Micah Brown motioned to issue an RFP with or without county participation to find a company to provide public transportations services at a lower cost than the city currently pays. Gay seconded the motion. It passed unanimously. Robert Allen can be reached at 850-6277649 or rallen@ gadcotimes.com. CITYContinued from Page A1 to the chief, where many people have homes yet leave to work someplace else during business hours. Midway is very unique, said Turner to the group. The majority of the tax base is not there during the day. Turner, however, continues to encourage residents to take agency in their community. The police department is only as good as the community that supports it, said Turner. If one of the citizens sees something, say something. Help us help you. Before the end of the meeting the chief also received a chorus of complaints as attendees began venting frustrations with the city council, finding the length of meetings too long and the quality of discourse too low. The next Breakfast with the Chief event will be Sep. 13. The location is yet to be determined. As before, the intention is to continue patronizing different Midway businesses on a rotating basis.Robert Allen can be reached at 850627-7649 or rallen@gadcotimes. com. CHIEFContinued from Page A2 TALLAHASSEE Florida Governor Rick Scott has signed legislation that expands the membership of Family Care Councils (FCC) to now include grandparents. There are 15 FCCs around the state that advise the Agency for Persons with Disabilities (APD). FCCs are made up of self-advocates, parents, siblings, guardians, and now grandparents who are appointed by Scott. Scott has appointed or reappointed 99 Family Care Council members since taking office. APD relies on the FCCs to share information and support all families throughout the state. The membership works each and every day to collaborate on issues and encourage independence for agency customers. APD Director Barbara Palmer said, I thank our FCC bill sponsors, Senator Nancy Detert and Representative Jose Felix Diaz, who supported this measure and made sure it was passed during the Legislative session. I also want to thank Governor Scott for his continued support of our FCCs. Our Family Care Councils are vital to APD. They share with us their concerns and issues that affect our customers in their local communities. Detert said, I was happy to sponsor the FCC bill, and am very pleased my fellow senators agreed to support it. I believe grandparents are an integral part of families, and should have a role in helping to advise APD on issues affecting loved ones with developmental disabilities. Now that Governor Scott has signed the measure into law, I hope many grandparents volunteer to serve on the 15 FCCs all over the state and begin sharing their wealth of knowledge and experience to benefit our citizens with developmental disabilities. Diaz said, It was a great pleasure to work with the Agency for Persons with Disabilities on this good bill that will allow grandparents to become more involved in advocating for individuals with developmental disabilities through their membership on Family Care Councils. I consider it a priority of mine to work towards the well-being of these vulnerable individuals and I am humbled to have been a part of this effort. Family Care Council (FCC) Florida incoming Chairperson Pauline Lipps said, I thank Governor Rick Scott and the Florida Legislature for supporting the expansion of membership for the Family Care Councils to now include grandparents. The FCCs have an important role in advising APD and advocating for families. Grandparents have a vital role in families and we are very appreciative of them being allowed to join the FCCs in the future. Grandparents are an important part of the fabric of the developmental disabilities community, said Deborah Linton, chief executive officer of The Arc of Florida, a nonprofit organization that advocates on behalf of individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities. We are pleased to see them included in the Family Care Council.

Blah, blah, blah. Take, for instance, the conversation surrounding Miss Indianas body in the 2014 Miss USA Pageant. Miss Indiana, MeKayla Diehl, who was widely praised for being more curvy than the other pageant contestants. She was described as having a realistic body, which resulted in a full-on explosion of the Twitter universe, as women denounced the 5, size 4 Diehl as far from average, which they claim is 5 and a size 12. Enter the namecalling of skinny people, twigs, toothpicks or bag of bones. And the divide continues, focusing on her body, on our bodies, and not on what we say or do. The discussion about whether Diehl is normal or average or whether a mother is healthier because she accepts her post-baby weight or works hard to lose it prevents us from moving to a place where we truly do not care, nor judge people, based on their height, weight or dress size. We can do better. Laura Finley, Ph.D., teaches in the Barry University Department of Sociology & Criminology and is syndicated by PeaceVoice. PEACEContinued from Page A4 Watch your tone. Avoid using an overly familiar or informal tone, unless youve learned that a relaxed writing style is preferred within your organization. (This includes using proper grammar and avoiding abbreviations like u, btw, thnx, and lol.) Carpenter also cautions against using sarcasm in emails, as its too easily misread. Use a proper form of address. You may eventually learn that a certain client prefers to be addressed by her first name, but until she makes that request, err on the side of respect by addressing your emails to Mrs. Brown. Likewise, says Carpenter, dont start your emails with Hi or Hello until that precedent has been set by the other party. Use clear subject lines. For many people, an emails subject line is an afterthought at best, and is either left blank or filled in with a one-word description like Meeting or Question. However, those subject lines dont tell the recipient anything useful about what the body of the email contains. Carpenter suggests using keywords to craft a short description or preview of why youre emailing; for example: Team meeting today at 3 p.m. in conference room, Deadline on Smith project? or PowerPoint for Jones proposal attached. In addition to serving as a preview, descriptive subject lines will help recipients to navigate and search their inboxes. Know when email isnt best. Yes, email may be convenient and efficient, but sometimes it just isnt as effective as picking up the phone or having a face-to-face conversation. If a subject is controversial, complex, or easily misunderstood, its usually best resolved in real time, says Carpenter. If a client is confused about her ordering options, call her. If your supervisor has multiple questions about the report you handed in, knock on his door. And if you have concerns about a clients possibly unethical behavior, schedule a meeting with your boss.

LISTContinued from Page A2 ARF) thanks Governor Scott and the Florida Legislature for recognizing the important role that grandparents play in the lives of their grandchildren and that these grandparents can now be actively involved in influencing and shaping the Agency for Persons with Disabilities policies and resources that are dedicated to serving their grandchildren. The new legislation is a win-win for all involved and will bring wisdom and experience to the table for Floridas Family Care Councils, said Florida Association of Rehabilitation Facilities Executive Director Suzanne Sewell. The Association of Support Coordinators is very pleased that Governor Scott and the Legislature have broadened the scope of Family Care Councils to include grandparents. Its crucial that individuals with disabilities receive the full benefit of interaction presented by an extended family. With more Floridians living longer and more active lifestyles than ever before, and many already functioning as primary caregivers, our grandparents present an active and vital natural source of support. The voice of these grandparents can now be heard through the Family Care Councils, said the Association of Support Coordination Agencies of Florida Chairperson Janice Phillips. APD supports people with developmental disabilities to live, learn, and work in their communities. The agency annually serves more than 50,000 Floridians with autism, cerebral palsy, spina bifida, intellectual disabilities, Down syndrome and PraderWilli syndrome. For information about the Agency for Persons with Disabilities, visit APD cares.org or call tollfree 1-866-APDCARES (1-866-273-2273).

ALUMContinued from Page A20 Staff reportGregory Harris, 46, was sentenced Judge Jonathan Sjostrom to 20 years in prison on June 4 for the second-degree murder of Glenn Allen Holley, 41. Initial charges against Harris were elevated to second-degree murder after Holley died from the injuries allegedly sustained by Harris striking him in the head with a tree branch. The incident occurred May 30, 2013, along Valley Drive in Quincy. According to information released by the Quincy Police Department, the two men had an argument during the afternoon of May 30 when Holley lightly shoved Harris into a chair before reinitiating the attack with the tree branch. When authorities arrived, they found Holley unresponsive and bleeding from his head wounds. The injured man was then taken to Tallahassee Memorial Hospital where he was later pronounced dead.
