ROBERT ALLENTimes ReporterWith more than 300 churches in Gadsden County, local law enforcement leaders are looking for these faith-based organizations to help out in tough times. Maj. Shawn Wood shared this during a June 19 meeting with some local pastors at the Gadsden County Sheriffs Office. He said Sheriff Morris Young is interested in mobilizing churches and congregations across the county into a support network in the event of a disaster, such as a powerful hurricane or widespread forest fire. Wood began by relating a story about two pastors who helped save the day by calming hundreds of frantic parents blocking the passage of ambulances after the recent school bus crash in Chattahoochee. I have what I do my nature, said Wood. Im the guy you call when something really bad is happening, and you feel like you need a warrior on your side. Thats me. Thats my nature. Thats who I am. But see, as a pastor, your call is different than mine. Would also said local church involvement could be relied on in ways unmatched by the government. Im going to tell you something, said Wood. The government isnt coming. They arent coming. According to Woods presentation, the GCSO plan for church involvement includes several aspects. Wood presented the benefits of utilizing pastors as liaisons between the deputies and families of victims, channeling emergency information through the churches internal sources of communication, staging rescue operations and housing displaced people in church buildings or on church properties, distributing necessities through congregational outreach and developing an evacuation system by encouraging churches to establish two-way housing arrangements with sister churches. In regard to this last point, Wood said, Dont depend on the government to transport you, because its going to be miserable and youre going to be put in a shelter. Young said after becoming sheriff, he began viewing the church as one collective whole rather than various denominations and isolated institutions. Now, he said, that collective whole can prepare to fill another critical role in the community. According to Wood, the No. 1 thing the deputies talk about at the sheriffs office is service and part of serving the people is finding the best person for the job. So what Im trying to do is be the quarterback, he said, and I want to hand you all the ball. I want you to do what you do. One, I dont like to do it. So I would rather you do it. And its not that I cant do it. You do a better job than I do. The meeting precedes this years Rural County Summit, which will focus on community disaster and emergency response. The fourday event will include a final day, July 12, when anyone in the community interested in becoming involved with volunteer emergency response is invited.

The SRT conducted a saturated patrol in the area around the Happy Kash and Karry Convenience Store on June 17. Two deputies situated themselves near a path leading away from the store. According to the arrest report, in the past deputies had observed suspects fleeing along this path when law enforcement officers approached the front of the convenience store. With the two deputies in position near the footpath, they stepped out and began walking toward the convenience store as SRT members in marked patrol cars pulled into the parking lot. The deputies on the path spotted a thenunidentified man smoking something. According to an arrest report, they approached him. When they asked the man where the joint was, he said he dropped it. One of the deputies also observed the man, who told deputies his name is Chris Williams, drop a small paper bag. When they began to cuff and detain Williams, a struggle began. With a cuff secured only on his left wrist, the suspect ran, according to the report. One deputy grabbed Williams while the other tried to secure the other Special GCSO team arrests suspects on drug charges See DRUGS / Page A12 Scott nixes one budget item for Gadsden ROBERT ALLENTimes ReporterFlorida Gov. Rick Scott released the 2014 budget early this month, along with a list of vetoed line items. This year, Scott has dubbed the spending plan the Its Your Money Tax Cut Budget. The tax cuts in this Budget will also help Florida maintain positive economic momentum as our states economy continues to add jobs and opportunities for families, wrote Gov. Scott in an open letter provided by his press office. Floridas unemployment rate is down 6.2 percent and has remained below the national average for nine consecutive months. In a little over three years, Floridas private sector has created more than 600,400 jobs. While speaking at the Gadsden County Chamber of Commerce meeting in May, Florida State Sen. Bill Montfort said he hoped Scott would concentrate his vetoes on line items involving expenses specifically for communities in central and south Florida anywhere south of Gainesville. According to a list of Scotts budget vetoes provided by the governors press office, the only nixed line item pertaining specifically to Gadsden County was $110,000 marked for the Senior Energy Efficiency Program Gadsden County. This appropriation was one of the budgetary items pursued by Bill Montford, senator for Floridas third district. Little information about the program appears to be readily available.

These numbers reflect a small overall increase in unemployment since April; however, employment in Information, Leisure and Hospitality, and Trade, Transportation and Utilities grew faster in the region than statewide. The unemployment rates in the three counties that CareerSource Capital Region serves were 6.9 percent in Gadsden, 5.4 percent in Leon and 4.8 percent in Wakulla. Gadsden Countys unemployment rate is .5 percentage points higher than the April 2014 rate. Leon Countys unemployment rate is .6 percentage points higher than the April 2014 rate. Wakulla Countys unemployment rate is .2 percentage points higher than the April 2014 rate.

A4 T HE G ADSDEN C OUNTY T IMES T HURSDAY, J UNE 26, 2014 WWW GADCOTIMES COM A s we drove west on Route 212,I had a graphic visual image of Custer and his men being massacred at Little Bighorn. The closer we drove to the battlefield,the more anxious I became. It was overcast early that morning when my wife, 7-yearold son and I started our drive to Little Bighorn Battlefield National Monument. We had spent the night at some remote Montana motel the night before. During the drive we discussed what we knew about the famous battle where Custer and his brave 7th Cavalry had met and suffered a devastating loss to a combined force of Lakota, Northern Cheyenne and Arapaho Indians. It was still early in the morning when we arrived at that vast, desolate area known as Little Bighorn. We turned off the car engine and climbed out to stretch and survey the terrain. It was still overcast, but I was able to view the area plainly and was awed at its immensity and with how foreboding it seemed. I had no difficulty with closing my eyes and becoming one with my surroundings in an attempt to obtain a sense of how it must have seemed to one of Custers men waiting to do battle in this very place so many years ago. One of the reasons I love history is that if I learn all I can about a battle and the surrounding area, its easy for me to imagine I was there, long ago, when actual history was being made. When I was stationed with the military on Wake Island 20 years after World War II,I read much about the battle for Wake Island before my transfer there. After reading vivid descriptions in books, it was so exciting to travel to a specific spot on the coastline of Wake and gaze out across the Pacific while going over in my mind a battle that had occurred close to the very spot upon which I was standing. When I went over to Wilkes Island, a part of Wake, a part of the hulk of a rotting Japanese ship was still visible and made reliving the story of its sinking so much more realistic. What made viewing the battlefield of Little Bighorn so poignant was that we were all alone; there were no other spectators at that time and place. I was overcome with more anxiety as I thought to myself, What if our car wont start,and we become stranded here? Would Indian warriors gradually emerge from the fog and overcome us as they had Custer and his men nearly 100 years ago? For the life of me, I couldnt fathom why I didnt have my cars solenoid repaired before we started this crosscountry trip. It was completely out of character for me. I always took care of my cars and any potential problems. Before we had left Connecticut I had tried to explain to my trusted friend and mechanic, Andy, that I had had trouble starting the car a couple of times, but if I went out and lifted the hood and tapped on a certain device near the battery, the car would start. Andy said it sounded like solenoid problems, but if tapping on that device did the trick, just be sure to take a small rock along with me. A solenoid is a device that connects a circuit between the battery and the starter. I wondered why Andy just didnt go ahead and install a new one. After we had taken in all that we desired of our surroundings that morning at the Little Bighorn battlefield,we climbed back into our maroon 1968 Ford Galaxie 500. What a wonderful, reliable car she had been, and so nice to ride in. I turned the key to start her,and there was nothing but a clicking sound. My stomach turned. This could not be happening all these miles away from civilization with absolutely no other people around. Reluctantly, I fished around for the stone with hopes that once again, a little tapping in the area of the cars solenoid would do the trick. I lifted the hood of the car while looking around all sides of me for any signs of imminent danger before I gently tapped on the area of the solenoid. I instructed Millie to turn the key while I waited, almost in a panic. Click, click; click click. I lowered the hood, my stomach churning, and sat down alongside Millie and Kent on the front seat. I said a prayer, asking for help in order to get my family out of this predicament. A few minutes later I went outside and reran the drill of tapping the solenoid; only this time I tapped a little harder. While still pleading Gods indulgence, Millie turned the key once again. This time the engine started effortlessly. We couldnt wait to leave the loneliness and desolation of Little Bighorn Battlefield National Monument on that dismal June morning. Did you know that the Battle of Little Bighorn was fought over June 25 and26 in 1876? We are about to witness the 138th anniversary of this significant day in history. God bless you. Now that summer is here, we are all looking forward to some time for relaxation and revitalization both close to home or on the road to visit family, friends or new exciting destinations. But please keep in mind that while we relax, some neighbors our first responders: police, EMT, firefighters, abuse investigators and hospital personnel and of course our military forces abroad and here in domestic service remain on call and stay vigilant to protect us and our families. Recognizing these heroes among us, supporting them and giving them an honest compliment is a worthy action that pays great dividends. While we are all from a wide diversity of ethnic and social backgrounds and have widely different personal experiences, one constant for all of us is having benefited from the caring commitment of nurses and teachers. Whenever a poll of most admired professions is conducted, nurses and teachers rate the highest. They have earned this reputation for doing so much for so many. Im one of the most ardent fans of these two professions, and Im willing to guess you are, too. We all fondly recall the positive experience of having a nurse care for us or a family member whether in pediatrics or hospice services and at all life stages in between. Physicians are certainly skilled, but emotionally, we usually rely on the more sensitive touch of a nurse to translate doctors ordersin ways that can be more easily understood and accepted. The best nurses are a perfect blend of medical science and human relations.They make decisions with the patient in mind and always try to predict the problem so it can best be prevented.Nurses give the gift of compassion even when the news is not good. As for teachers Wow! Where would we be without the guidance and generosity of teachers in our formative years?When I conduct my community seminars, I like to ask participants who their greatest positive influence was in their childhoodother than immediate family members.Invariably, a teacher springs to mind, usually with a smile of fond recognition. I remember Miss Quinn (I learned years later her first name was Ann).As a fourth-grader, I was certainly not the most loquacious kid; I was kind of shy.I liked reading and feared math. I knew why the word number began numb! I could smoothly skate my way through the most complex paragraph but slipped and stumbled when even the simplest math problem confronted me.I deeply dreaded the feeling of cold sweat when called to the board to divide or multiply in public! Miss Quinn taught every fourth-grade subject in our suburban elementary school in my hometown, Long Beach, N.Y.My memory of her starts with her engaging smile;it shined and expressed that she really wanted to be with us. But she was no pushover.If the wilder kids thought they could run over this seemingly kind person, she proved them wrong with a cold glance, a pursed lip, and if need be, a direct voice. Jeffrey, none of us appreciates your disruptive behavior,and we certainly expect more of you so we can all get on with todays work. That was Miss Quinns style. Jeffrey was cornered by the collective voice of the rest of us, and none of us wanted to be designated as the focus of organized negativity alone, separatedand scorned.She taught the lesson of good attitude by instilling in us a fear of the alternative. The teachers art is clear and convincing communication so a love of learning is shared with all the children in the class.While most of us grew up with family expectation of educational success, its not a goal that can ever be achieved without the engaging skills of good teachers. We all know that great debates rage over health care and educational policies. What system reforms are needed to get the most benefit for the least cost is the usual focus of attention. In my experience as a public policy advocate, I have come to learn the best path leads us to the most obvious conclusion. Investment in quality professionals is the key to success in all of the human services. We have to determine who knows what to do, when and how to do it best. We will feel better and do better as the result of that wise investment in a skilled workforceof great benefit to all, across the generations. Recognizing and acting upon that reality would bring us far forward in our health status, educational achievement, economic stability and quality of life. If you wish to share a story of a nurse or teacher who had a meaningful impact in your life, please send it my way. I am interested in hearing your thoughts about these two powerful professions.

In praise of nurses, teachers Opinion LeeAnn Hall American ForumThe U.S. Senate held a vote recently to bring up legislation allowing student debt-holders to refinance old loans at lower current interest rates. The motion to debate the Bank on Students Emergency Loan Refinancing Act(S. 2432) garnered a 56-38 majority but fell short of the 60 votes needed to open debate. Republicans cast 37 of the 38 no votes. Only three Republicans joined 53 Democrats and Independents in voting to debate the bill. For members of the college and highschool classes of 2014 and for past graduates, this effort to tackle the student debt issue is sorely needed. For whether their degrees are in math, science, history or English, our graduates are coming out of college schooled in something else entirely: the crushing weight of student loan debt. With outstanding student debt now topping $1.2 trillion, 40 million Americans are facing the consequences of our failing national commitment to higher education. This situation poses a threat to Americas economic vitality and its promise of opportunity. The Federal Reserve reports growing student loan debt is holding borrowers back from buying homes and cars. This is bad news for an economy still trying to get its mojo back since the Great Recession. And student loans have turned into a big business for the U.S. Department of Education, which reportedly made a profit of $41.3 billion from federal student loans last year. If the agency were a corporation, it would be one of the most profitable in the world. Its time to address the student debt crisis and the toll its taking on the economy. Allowing refinancing will save borrowers thousands of dollars in interest payments. That will free up disposable income, boost consumer spending and strengthen the economy. However, to fix the overall student debt picture, we need to think even bigger big enough to put free college back on the national agenda. Does free college sounds like magical thinking? Its more like a walk down memory lane. Fifty years ago in California, tuitionfree college wasnt pie in the sky;it was state policy.

WWW GADCOTIMES COM T HE G ADSDEN C OUNTY T IMES T HURSDAY, J UNE 26, 2014 A5 education in the public University of California system came with free tuition and fees totaling just $220 for the year. At the 1964 minimum wage of $1.25 an hour, you could earn $220 in four and a half weeks of full-time work. That means a University of California student 50 years ago could earn enough to pay for a years college costs by flipping burgers for a month in the summer. Today, even at instate rates, with tuition and fees averaging $8,893 for the 2013-2014 school year, it would take seven months of fulltime work at the $7.25 federal minimum wage to make that much. Whats changed since 1964? A massive public disinvestment from higher education has shifted the costs of college onto students and families. Just in the past few years, state funding per student was cut by an average of 27 percent nationwide. Private interests have filled the void, transforming college finance into a vehicle for financial industry profits. Private lenders have moved aggressively into the student loan market, offering loans with interest rates in the double digits. The explosion of student loan debt has also fueled a burgeoning student loan debt collection industry. Translation: Wall Street has turned our college students into a new cash cow. It doesnt have to be this way. If were serious about giving our children and grandchildren real freedom freedom from student debt we need to reverse the trend of public disinvestment, put a stop to private profiteering and recommit to free college in America. Then we need to marshal the resources to make it happen. Ending offshore tax giveaways to multinational corporations and millionaires would be one way to get there. Is solving the student debt crisis going to take a fight, given the political clout of the financial interests that are making big money off the status quo? Of course. But its a fight worth having. Lets make college in America what it should be: a free, shared vehicle for building an educated people, not another costly way for special interests to take us for a ride.

Because education is everybodys business, our community deserves someone willing to take a stand with a bold voice for our children. Lets get back to the basic ABCs of educating our children by collaborating with the whole village to raise them. To accomplish this, we must work together ensuring all voices are heard. Lets stop making excuses for housing students in alternative schools and implement policies and procedures to keep our schools safe that will allow teachers to teach and students to be educated. I want to make public education better for our children by focusing on change for the future as follows: EDUCATION Work to Put Prayer back in our schools by implementing policy and procedures to respect all denominations/nonJ une is the month for weddings,and it is no exception for our family.My grandson is getting married in Lubbock, Texas and we are all happy and excited.I did not tell Beebe because he hates being boarded. I try not to discuss any events being held out of town too far in advance as I dont like him worrying. Nevertheless, he found out about it. When I printed out my plane reservations, he grabbed them from the printer and clawed at them until they were illegible. I attributed this to his separation anxiety and tried to comfort him. He stalked off and returned with the wedding invitation. I was puzzled.What was he trying to tell me? Then, I remembered he has a crush on Honeybunch, a kitty he has never met in person. (Or should that be in cat?) I began wondering if he was contemplating marriage and wanted me to order invitations for him. I put the question to him,and he bit my toe. I considered that a no, which was a big relief since I felt one should at least meet the bride before popping the question. Day after day he pushed that invitation off the desk and onto the floor, where he would bat at it with his paw. Clearly, there was something about that wedding that displeased him. What could it be?I finally decided to consult Nurse Judy, my know-it-all alter ego, who thinks she is Beebes mouthpiece. In no time at all, she was back with an answer. Its simple,she said. Beebe is upset that he hasnt been asked to take part in the wedding. What makes him think he should be in the wedding?I asked, still puzzled.

The game will determine which team will move on from Group G. Both teams currently have one win and one draw against the other teams in their group. The United States beat Ghana and tied Portugal while Germany beat Portugal and tied Ghana. Jergen Klinsman, the U.S. head coach, is a former captain of the German national team. Among other tournaments with other teams, he has played for his homeland in three world cups: 1990, 1994 and 1998 including a victory in 1990. Now, Klinsman will lead the U.S. against his former team. Locally, Matt Henely, president of the FSU boys soccer club, weighed in on the upcoming game during a Times interview. Despite the U.S. teams move away from a more defensive and reactive style of play, Henely said it seems likely they will revert back to it when faced with an opponent as skilled as Germany. Germany, on the other hand, according to Henely, will likely employ more aggressive techniques, seeking to possess the ball and maneuver it widely enough in the midfield to create exploitable openings in the U.S. defense.

The county referred questions to city of Quincy and the city of Quincy directed a reporter to the Quincy Community Redevelopment Agency. In a Times interview with CRA Director Regina Davis, she said the program was an idea she developed in an attempt to help local seniors. The plan involved sending city employees to make minor improvements in homes of senior citizens, aiming to lower these elderly residents cost of living by increasing the efficiency of their household utilities. The program, according to Davis, has never received state funding in the past. The new budget also directly affected a few of Gadsden Countys neighbor when the governor vetoed line items specifically appropriated funds or projects in those counties. A $1.5 million dredging expense was vetoed for Wakulla County, along with a $525,000 paddling trail project in the same county. Similarly, neither Jefferson nor Calhoun counties will receive the $200,000 state tax dollars legislators had marked for projects on the two counties courthouses. The most costly budget item vetoed by Scott was the proposal for a $3.25 million addition to Stetson Universitys science facility at the small private institutions main campus in Deland a Volusia County town south of Montfords desired line of north/south demarcation.

FOURTHContinued from Page A1 ROBERT ALLENTimes Reporter Gadsden County Commissioner Brenda Holt traveled to Washington, D.C., to testify about the closure of the countys Social Security Office before the U.S. Senate Special Committee on Aging, chaired by Sen. Bill Nelson, D-Fla. Holt said in the meetings and conversations with leaders in the nations capital, she was unable to find anyone who could explain what objective standard the Social Security Administration used when deciding to close the Social Security office in Gadsden County. There was no rubric, said Holt. There were no guidelines. We could not determine why they closed our office. When Holt voiced her frustrations with the Social Security Administration, she said she could only be so upset by an organization that is being underfunded. Theyre talking about numbers, and Im talking about people that we care about, said Holt. Its a funding problem for them. Its a human problem for us. Holt also said the committee asked her for specific case examples supporting the need for the countys Social Security Office. According to the Senates transcript of the Gadsden commissioners statements, she gave them a case example: I can use the example of Mr. Kate Alexander, a gentleman whose cancer case is an example of how the elderly community in Gadsden County are treated. He had paid for his own insurance from the time he was 16 years old until he was 60. Mr. Alexander was told he could not get chemotherapy because of his deductible, and his insurance would not cover the costs. He had to travel 54 miles to Tallahassee, FL from his home in Gadsden County, embarrassed and ashamed. Eventually, Mr. Alexander was able to receive treatment for his cancer after being signed up for Affordable Healthcare. Unfortunately, due to the timing of the issue, Mr. Alexander passed away from lack of chemotherapy treatments while waiting on insurance to cover costs. After her entire testimony, Holt said the matter was not resolved. Nor was it abandoned. They responded very well, said the commissioner. They were very sympathetic and they thanked us for traveling so far. Gadsden County Sheriffs Office Arrest Report June 23, 2014 1. William Franklin Burger III: Grand theft 2.

ROBERT ALLENTimes Reporter Havana North Side High Schools class of 1989 held their 25year reunion over the past weekend. The schedule of events included a dinner, dance and presentation on the evening of June 21. About 20 graduates attended to reconnect with their old classmates. This reunion was the first one Leslie Robinson attended. She joined the Navy, leaving Havana immediately after graduation and hadnt met with her former classmates since. I never came back, she said. Im enjoying it. You want to go back and see what theyre doing now. While in the Navy, Robinson worked as an air traffic controller and then with unmanned aerial vehicles, more commonly known as drones. Since returning, Robinson reports considering various lucrative opportunities in civilian air traffic controlling but she said she isnt sure she wants to leave the more relaxed pace of life in Gadsden County again. Shawn Norwood, a supply officer in the Navy as well, traveled the greatest distance to attend the reunion. Currently stationed in Maryland where he works procuring civilian contracts for military projects, Norwood covered more than 800 miles to be at the event. Its great to see old classmates, said Norwood. I always come back. I still have family here. Norwood said he hopes to have a chance to celebrate 30 years with the same people. When asked if the evening brought back any old memories, Norwood said none. Then he smiled and amended, None to tell. The event was planned by Theresa Lurry, Dyronea Bradwell, Sharhonda Brown and Mark Black.

Photo by Robert Allen Area gas prices in neutral TALLAHASSEE Average retail gasoline prices in Tallahassee have not moved in the past week, averaging $3.63/g Sunday, according to GasBuddy's daily survey of 201 gas outlets in Tallahassee. This compares with the national average that has increased 2.6 cents per gallon in the last week to $3.68/g, according to gasoline price website GasBuddy.com. Including the change in gas prices in Tallahassee during the past week, prices yesterday were 16.9 cents per gallon higher than the same day one year ago and are 6.1 cents per gallon lower than a month ago. The national average has increased 4.6 cents per gallon during the last month and stands 10.9 cents per gallon higher than this day one year ago. "While concerns in Iraq have led to higher prices in many areas across the nation in the last week, a new concern has come to light: a possible increase in the federal gasoline tax," said GasBuddy.com Senior Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan. "Suddenly, there are a few different situations that bear monitoring that could have an impact at the pump: Iraq, the Feds (raising gas taxes), and the peak of hurricane season, which is coming soon. While this week at the pump could be a quiet one, especially if there's no major Iraq news, motorists still face the threat of higher prices later in the summer, and watching lawmakers debate raising gasoline taxes certainly is worth monitoring."

Dropoffs, weedlines and weedats should be good, but the edges of humps and reefs will usually hold the most sh. On hot days, bass hold tight to the bottom or hide in the thickest vegetation they can nd to escape the hot sun and boat trafc. At night, they move away from cover and higher up in the water and begin to feed. Color of the bait isnt as important now as shape and size. A large lure tends to produce more vibration and bass pick that up on their lateral line. Big baits are also easier to see. They dont see lure details like during the day, but they see the big outline and thats what they go after. Topwater baits are also a great choice for bass at night. A big bass exploding out of the water to smash a topwater in the dark of night is something every sherman needs to experience.

Beebe leaped to Nurse Judys shoulder and stuck his nose in her ear. What did he say?I asked, and then immediately felt silly. Cats cant talk, I told myself. Undaunted, Nurse Judy said, He says that is not a good decision. Why?I asked, not believing I was trying to converse with my cat. He says its not economical. Why not? He says he could sneak in your suitcase so there would be no cost for airfare. Thats illegal. He says, also, that he already has a tuxedo. Thats true,I said, but he wears it as everyday wear. There was a silence,and Beebe was back at her ear: He says he can dress it up for the wedding, Nurse Judy said. How?I asked. Beebe jumped down and scampered away. When he returned, he sat majestically at my feet,gazing up at my face. He had donned a red sequined bowtie,which looked great with his tuxedo. I snapped his picture and to send to John and Elizabeth. I doubt, however, that we will see Beebe strolling up the aisle a ring on his tail. I just dont know how Im going to tell him. I will also send the picture to Honeybunch so she can see howher possible groom might look on their wedding day.

Ultimately, the club president said a narrow German victory or a draw are both probable outcomes. If the June 26 game between the U.S. and Germany does end in another draw, both teams can move on in the tournament. Even if the U.S. team loses, they still have a chance to progress beyond their group if Ghana and Portugal tie or if Ghana beats Portugal by the right margin. U.S. fans may consequently want to keep an eye on the other game. The U.S. game will be televised on ESPN. The concurrent game between the other two Group G teams, Portugal and Ghana, will be televised on ESPN2. GAME Continued from Page A5 mation. In recognition of rich cultural contributions AfricanAmerican musicians have made throughout history, the Bill McGill Library plans a free open house program from 1 to 5 p.m. Saturday, June 28. Local stamp collector Rutha House-Taliaferro will host an exhibit that features artistic renditions of musicians on postal stamps and memorabilia. She will display stamps that recognize rhythm and blues, gospel, rock and roll, as well as individual performers such as blues legends Muddy Waters, Robert Johnson and Leadbelly, as well as Ella Fitzgerald, Jimi Hendrix, Miles Davis and more. The librarys display case currently has stamps featuring gospel singers and a few notable musicians, including Otis Redding, John Coltrane and Ray Charles. There will be many more stamps on exhibit for the program, which will include several types of historic AfricanAmerican music on CD. My love of music started when I sang in the Carter-Parramore High School glee club and several community and church choirs, Taliaferro said. Combining my love of history with stamp collecting, it was just natural to start saving stamps that help celebrate musical traditions. She invites the public to help share the musical heritage this Saturday at the Bill McGill Library in Quincy. MUSIC Continued from Page A3 The Gadsden County Probation Division is offering an array of new services to improve the quality of those currently being offered. Six different programs have been implemented within the division. 1. Alcohol Breath Test: This service is offered for court ordered breath tests. Breath tests are scheduled anywhere from three to four days a week. The number of tests administered varies from three to 20 per day. Alcohol breath tests are courtordered to be taken anywhere from daily, to one to four times per week, or one to three times per month. Breath tests are ordered for defendants with alcohol-related charges such as DUI. The current cost per test is $5. Testing varies for DUI charges related to alcohol or high alcohol reading on the first offense. 2. Bad Check Class: Bad check offenders are required to attend a bad check class, in addition to paying restitution. The fee is currently $65 if the offender is court-ordered to attend.

It can lower your gas mileage by 33 percent at highway speeds and by 5 percent around town. Observe the speed limit While each vehicle reaches its optimal fuel economy at a different speed (or range of speeds), gas mileage usually decreases rapidly at speeds above 60 mph. Observing the speed limit is also safer.Gassaving tips

The cuffing deputy deployed his Taser and told Williams he would discharge the weapon if he did not cease resisting and begin complying but Williams continued to scuffle with the deputy on the ground. According to the report the standing deputy then utilized his Taser for a fivesecond cycle, aiming at Williams stomach. The action was ineffective and Williams continued to struggle. So the deputy employed his Taser again, delivering another five-second cycle. But Williams still resisted. Williams managed to get to his feet and begin making another attempt to flee but, according to the arrest report, one of the deputies gained a grip on Williams T-shirt and the two began to fight. At this point, another two deputies arrived. The four deputies were able to subdue and cuff Williams. According to the arrest report, they searched Williams and found $340 and several bags of marijuana packaged for resale. They also recovered the dropped bag, which contained a rocklike substance similar to crack cocaine. Deputies then asked Williams if he had anything illegal in his vehicle. According to the arrest report, Williams said he had a scale in the trunk for weighing narcotics. He told a deputy to open the trunk and retrieve it. He also told deputies they could search the rest of the vehicle. Tucked inside a cigar package in the glove box, a deputy found three small bags of suspected cocaine, which Williams said were his. The vehicle was then impounded and Williams, 24, of Sneads, was placed under arrest. He is charged with resisting an officer, cocaine possession, marijuana possession, and drug equipment possession. His bond was set at $45,250. The next night, June 18, when SRT deputies appeared at a Morgan Avenue home to issue a search warrant, suspect Brian L. Cherry greeted law enforcement at the front door. According to the GCSO arrest report, after being read the search warrant, the deputies told Cherry to tell them if anything illegal was in the residence. Cherry said he was unaware of anything illegal and the search began. According to the report, deputies found a number of items used to manufacture methamphetamines, including acidic acid, lighter fluid, aluminum foil and salt. The arrest report records these items were together under the kitchen sink. The report also said deputies found a plastic bottle containing used ammonia nitrate, lithium metal and a coffee filter. In the master bedroom, the report said deputies found lye, more foil, more lighter fluid fuel, ice packs and an empty pseudoephedrine box. All these items were seized by GCSO as suspected production components for meth. Also in the bedroom, the deputies located a number of brown plastic pill bottles containing about 10 grams of test-verified meth, according to the report. Beside the nightstand, deputies found four straws, a razor blade, and a clear glass plate set with four lines of meth. According to the report, Cherry advised GCSO the woman at his residence during the search had no involvement with any of the recovered evidence. Cherry was arrested and charged with manufacturing meth, possession of meth with intent to sell, possession of paraphernalia, possession of precursor chemicals, maintaining a drug house, maintaining a drug house and producing meth.
