ROBERT ALLENTimes Reporter Cynthia Shingles asked Mike Wade, interim city manager, and the city commissioners to explain why her employment with the city was suddenly terminated on June 12. She spoke at the regular June 24 commission meeting during time for public comment. Previous executive assistants have never been terminated due to new administration and your change in direction, said Shingles. Im not even a director. I dont do budgets. I dont supervise people. But I was terminated. Is it personal? Shingles had been serving as an executive assistant for Interim City Manager Mike Wade. Before Wade, Shingles functioned in the same capacity, serving the city as an executive assistant for the previous city manager, Jack McLean. Shingles told the commission and audience Wade never met or consulted with her since he accepted the role of interim city manager. She also explained that many of her former responsibilities had been systematically dispersed to other offices. Wade did not respond to this statement. Shingles also said mail previously delivered to the city managers office was now being redirected away from her office to the utilities department, including items requiring Wades signature. Thats untrue, said Wade. It didnt go over there. Shingles disagreed. Mr. Wade, I saw them in the utilities directors box, she said I contacted the staff that put them there. Wade did not respond further to this. After Shingles spoke, applause broke out for a moment before Mayor Derrick Elias called for the next speaker. THURSDAY, JULY3, 2014 WWW.GADCOTIMES.COM VOLUME113/ISSUE27 50 16 PAGES, 1 SECTIONHappy Independence Day 000HEVG ROBERT ALLENTimes ReporterThe Quincy City Commission moved quickly through a number of issues at their regular meeting June 24. Commissioner Keith Dowdell was unable to attend the forum in person. He contributed, however, via speakerphone throughout the session, allowing him to engage in discussion but not vote on motions. With a 4-0 vote, the commission unanimously reappointed Jonathan Kent Robbins for another three-year term as the code magistrate for the city, as recommended by the city staff. The magistrate is a specific type of judge, invested with authority to hold hearings regarding the infringement of city code. The position wields the power to issue fines. According to the citys agenda, Robbins has settled more than 70 code cases since his initial appointment in May 2010. While he has no legal background, the citys staff recommendation reads, in part, he is very judicious in his handling of cases and treats every code violator with respect fairness and even handedness and pays particular attention to the requirements of the code as he deliberates each case. Similarly, the commission unanimously reappointed Larry L. Don Sirmons as a Quincy representative with the Gadsden County Airport Authority. The airport authorHAVANA The Northwest Florida Water Management District recently completed a work plan for the establishment of minimum flows and levels (MFLs) in Northwest Florida, a vital step for the long-term protection of three regional spring systems including the St. Marks River Rise, Sally Ward Spring and Wakulla Springs. The work plan includes the data, technical information and assessments the District is now using to successfully establish realistic, sciencebased MFLs. The plan also includes a public-involvement and peer-review process, as well as a schedule and cost estimate for development of the MFLs. One of the districts top priorities is establishing a meaningful and realistic MFL program that will help us ensure the long-term protection and sustainability of our water resources, said District Executive Director Jon Steverson. This work plan is our road map to achieving a successful MFL program by clearly laying out the steps the district is taking as we move forward with developing these three MFLs for our region.

The show, featuring songs from the 1953 animated film, was presented by the theaters youth summer camp. I like the sword fight part, said Calvin Juliet, who played Peter Pan. I worked on that a lot and got better ever single time. Juliet was also impressed with cast member Emily Hoatsons manipulation of the crocodile suit, a human-guided apparatus situated on small set of wheels. Its not a big part but its extremely complicated, said Juliet. Thats something to look forward to seeing. The crocodile hungers for the rest of Captain Hook throughout the show after Pan severed the pirate leaders hand and fed it to the carnivorous sea creature. Peter Pan was Juliets first lead role and first experience with Quincy Music Theatres summer program. Like Disneys depiction of Pan, Juliet played the part in a trim green costume, armed with a straight-edged short sword. According Jackson Knight, who played Captain Hook, the show gradually took shape but eventually came to life, for him, in one defining moment. When I first got my hook, it completed the show, said Knight. With 21 productions to her name, Hilary Erde, who played Tinker Bell, was a veteran among the young cast. She considered the musical number during Pan and the Darlings visit to the Indian village one of the shows highlights. Thats probably the best song in the show something definitely worth watching, she said. Nicole Estrella Wright, a professional director and actress who has previously played the role of Peter Pan at the Leaf Theatre, directed the summer show. This has been such a wonderful production for me, said Wright. It was a really great experience being able to come back here and direct this show. Wright studied musical theater at LeesMcRae College, earning a bachelors degree in the discipline. We really wanted the children to not just get up there and act, but to learn about all aspects of theater, said Wright. The biggest challenge was just fitting 56 kids on stage. Bill Mock, technical director and set designer, explained with this many people on stage, smart design and precise execution of scene changes was an important factor, which required careful planning and practice. Wright and Mock werent alone, however, with their directorial challenges. Bradley Gay served as musical director while Robyn Smith choreographed and Jack Juliet stage-managed. Rounding out the cast were: Sage Bell, Natalie Bowen, Jaiden Briggs, Katelyn Carpenter, Meagan Clarke, Helena Connolly, Mariana De La Cruz, Anna Edge, Walker Hammelman, Addison Howell, Mackenzie Jackson, Hayley Johnson, Oliver Juliet, Naomi Lamarche, Emory Layerd, Shaw Layerd, Isaac Livingston, Jade Livingston, Tyra Livingston, Jamie Maloy, Elizabeth Mapp, Hannah Mapp, Josiah Mapp, David May, Josie May, Anna Miller, Owen Miller, Mary Ryan Mitchell, Anna Nunamaker, Kanene Nwokeji, Leah Pennington, Taylor Phillips, Tayla Robarts, Brett Robbins, Faryn Scott, Allura Sheheane, Elizabeth Strickland, Silvia Suber, Winton Suber, Caroline Sundstrom, Kate Sundstrom, Gabrielle Veltkamp, Jada Watkins, Carly White, Keen Williams and Gracie Kelleher. The Quincy Music Theaters Summer Camp participants enjoyed complimentary ice cream sundaes from The Mainstreet Cafe following their performances of Peter Pan Jr. June 26 and 27. The 56 campers spent four weeks rehearsing lines, building sets and learning about theater. Pictured here are: Owen Miller, Shaw Layerd, David May, Anna Miller, Walker Hammelman, Winton Suber, Jaiden Briggs, Helena Connolly, Emory Layerd and Silvia Suber. Photo submitted begun work to develop MFLs for five water bodies in Northwest Florida: St. Marks River Rise, Wakulla Springs, Sally Ward Spring, the Florida Aquifer in coastal Franklin County and Jackson Blue Spring. The district anticipates the technical assessment of its first MFL St. Marks River Rise to be completed in 2018. MFLs serve as an important tool in protecting Floridas water resources, including many of the states treasured springs, said Drew Bartlett, Florida Department of Environmental Protections Deputy Secretary of Water Policy and Ecosystem Restoration. The department appreciates the districts commitment to establishing MFLs throughout the region and commends district staff on the progress theyve made over the past two years. MFLs set water flows, levels and limits necessary to prevent significant harm to the water resources or ecology of an area from water withdrawals. Florida law (section 373.042(1), Florida Statutes,) requires each water management district to develop and set MFLs to protect the water bodies, including springs, rivers and aquifers, within their region. MFLs are calculated using the best available information and science, and the process of developing those MFLs includes a series of steps including identification of priority water bodies and establishment of the districts schedule; technical analysis of data collection; and finally, the adoption of district rules establishing MFLs.

According to the citys agenda, the city appoints two members, the county appoints two members and those four members appoint the fifth member. The city also discussed their continued search for new legal representation. A recent request for proposals returned two results. Mike Wade, interim city manager, said the commissioners could ask the city staff to begin engaging the firms in a dialogue about contracts or the commissioners could interact directly with the candidates. Im a little disappointed that weve only had two firms respond to the RFP, said Commissioner Andy Gay. I would like for us to interview both firms. Gay suggested this could happen in the next few weeks. Commissioner Daniel McMillan motioned to hold a special workshop for the purpose of allowing the commissioners a chance to personally interview representatives from both firms. Gay seconded the motion. It passed unanimously. The citys stillevolving financial situation was another topic of discussion at the meeting. Currently, our revenue is roughly $2 million and some change higher than our expenses which is absolutely wonderful, said McMillan. But I want to know where that $2.5 million is if were looking at a deficit. Joe Weil from the citys finance department fielded this question. You can accrue revenue that you might not collect, said Weil, explaining the financial situation looked better on paper than in person. Im almost scared at the optimism, he said. Lets be cautious. Weil wasnt alone. I couldnt agree more, said McMillan. Its one of those things where it looks like weve got more money than we really do so we shouldnt get ahead of ourselves. During his report, McMillan continued to talk about the citys finances, specifically concerning the future of the citys telecommunications business. Its alarming what we would have to charge our customers to get to a break-even point, said McMillan. Our current customer, paying $32.95 a month, would have to be paying $304.71 a month for us to get to a break even-point and thats without paying a bond payment. With the bond payment, that $32.95 actually goes to $552.52 a month. So basically theyre making a house payment for Internet if were going to break even. And I just dont feel comfortable with those numbers. McMillan also spoke about the citys budget. The commissioner said Talquin Communications bond payment, interest rate and principal amount are nowhere to be found in the annual paper work. Thats an expense thats easy, said McMillan. We can come up with it. Its consistent every year. The reason why its not in out budget, in my opinion, is because were trying to muddy the waters so you cant tell whats going on. And we cant have that any more. CITYContinued from Page A1 I am Charlie Frost, and I am seeking reelection as School Board Member for District 4 in Gadsden County. I have proudly served as your school board member since 2002. My years of experience representing children, families, and educational professionals in Gadsden County have taught me many things. My experience as a school-policy maker, however, for Gadsden School District has taught me that it is vital to the welfare of our students, and to the welfare of this county to have a voice actively committed to advocating a quality education for all our children. My focus, as School Board Member for District 4, has been and continues to be making sound decisions regarding district finances and supporting policies that maximize our resources and ensure the best educational opportunities for all our students. My wife, Bobbie, and I have been married since 1980 and are life-long members of this wonderful community. We have also raised five children, who graduated from Gadsden County schools, and we take pleasure watching our five grandchildren gain their educational foundation in the Gadsden County schools, as well. I want to personally thank you for the opportunity to serve as School Board Member for District 4 and would appreciate your continued support on August 26, 2014. By choosing to re-elect me you ensure that experience and knowledge will continue to serve as your voice for District 4. Isaac Simmons, Jr. announces his candidacy for re-election for District 3 School Board Seat for Gadsden County. Simmons currently serves as senior member of the Gadsden County School Board. Simmons continues to be recognized as one of the most experienced School Board Members throughout the state. He is a state certified board member. Also, Simmons has completed the Master Board Certification which provides extensive training to meet the challenges of operating a school district. Simmons currently serves as the Legislative liaison for the school board, and a Commissioner on the Gadsden County Planning and Zoning Board. Improving school safety and academic performance continues to be top priority for Simmons. He is seeking the opportunity to continue to ensure that our school district keep moving forward and follow through on many Federal, State, and Local programs that have been implemented. Our schools are making great academic progress which is an indication that current programs are working and our school district is headed in the right direction. Simmons has a strong belief that the success of our county hinges on quality of education being provided by all educational providers. His experience, work ethics, and leadership ability provides him the expertise needed to continue to represent district 3 in a fair and professional manner. Simmons philosophy is to represent all people, always listen to their concerns and continue to be an advocate for public education. If our schools are to be ranked among the best, we must continue to make academic progress that will attract a diverse student population, along with the most qualified teachers. Simmons has always made decisions with the students at the forefront and will continue to do so. It is his goal to continue to maintain honest, open communication and be easily accessible to all stake holders. When it comes to educating students, collaboration with parents, community engagement, and business partners are keys to success. Simmons states that it is an honor and a privilege to represent citizens of district 3, which includes the followings communities: Chattahoochee, Greensboro, Rosedale, Flat Creek, Oak Grove, Sycamore, St. James, Sawdust, St. Mary, Bear Creek, Providence, and Juniper. Isaac Simmons 850-627-9651 "Just in time for the July 4 weekend, it appears the national average has hit a new 2014 high in the last week," said GasBuddy.com Senior Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan. "The good news is that we're seeing signs that the peak price we hit last week is starting to unwind, but with July 4 just days away, motorists shouldn't be expecting any big retreats in price before the weekend. The situation in Iraq has cooled, and if the situation remains calm and hurricane season continues to be a non-story, motorists will continue to see a slow decline in prices. But while the situation is slowly turning around and prices declining, it will still be the most expensive July 4 at the pump since 2008," DeHaan said. FUELContinued from Page A2 ROBERT ALLENTimes Reporter Gov. Rick Scott signed a new bill that aims to improve the states ethics laws. A June 20 press release issued by Integrity Florida, a nonpartisan research institute and government watchdog, lists the new legislations four key ethical points. The release says the bill, allows the Florida Commission on Ethics to independently begin investigation when officials fail to file financial disclosure reports; requires lobbyist disclosure at the states water management district; requires annual ethics training for elected city officials; and applies portions of the state ethics code to Enterprise Florida and Citizens Property Insurance Corporation. The training aspect, a four-hour requirement, is not specifically outlined. Im sure the Florida League of Cities will come out with some program, said Lee Garner, city manager of Chattahoochee. Well take the lead from them. Im sure that will be one of their planks for next year. Garner said if the league didnt create a course, he would be able to put together a four-hour program himself. Midway City Manager Dot Inman-Johnson shared Garners confidence. She said there will be plenty of opportunities for city governments to obtain this training. I think the training is a good thing, she said. Not all city governments have someone on staff to warn them to protect themselves against possible violations. Like Garner, Inman-Johnson said the Florida League of Cities would offer a course. Its beneficial to all of us because it protects the citizens and the elected officials by providing them the means to do their job in the most ethical manner possible, she said. According to the press release, the Florida House of Representatives unanimously passed the bill, 118-0, on May 1. The next day, the Florida Senate also unanimously passed the bill, 38-0. The law took effect July 1. Aside from Integrity Florida, the bill was supported by other groups, including Common Cause Florida, The Tea Party Network, the First Amendment Cause Florida, and the Citizens Awareness Foundation.

Nate JonesAmerican ForumEarlier this year, the Veterans Affairs Administration denied the Tampa TribunesFreedom of Information Act request for the names of VA hospitals where veterans died because of delays in medical screenings. To hide this information, the VA used the pre-decisional exemption, simply stating the requested documents were preliminary communications and could thus be withheld. This misapplication was not an isolated incident. Agency use of this b(5) catch-all exemption has skyrocketed to more than 12 percent of all FOIA requests, often to prevent embarrassment or hide errors and failures ignoring President Obamas clear instructions to the contrary. Fortunately, Sens. Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.) and John Cornyn (RTexas), working in one of Washingtons last bastions of bipartisanship, have introduced a bill that will stem this abuse. The FOIA Improvement Act of 2014 will make it easier for everyday Americans to use the law to request and receive documents, such as the Veterans Affairs records, in three key ways. First, it reforms one of the most abused methods agencies use to withhold information: the socalled pre decisional exemption, which can actually be stretched to withhold all interagency or intra-agency memorandums or letters. Second, the bill legislates that agencies cannot charge some FOIA fees when they miss their FOIA deadlines. Finally, the bill strengthens the FOIA ombuds office, a mediation service provided to requesters when they cannot afford litigation, and promotes proactive online access to documents. Perhaps most importantly, the LeahyCornyn bill fixes the withhold it because you want to FOIA exemption by requiring agencies (and, if necessary, courts) to weigh the public interest before denying documents. It also limits the use of this exemption to documents 25 years or younger. This parallels the restrictions placed by the Presidential Records Act; if communications at the highest levels of government are eventually de facto available to the public, it only makes sense that agency communications should be as well. The bill also cements fairness into the FOIA fee system. When media, educational or scientific institutions submit FOIA requests, the majority of their fees are always waived. This is not the case for everyday requesters, who are often charged expensive search and review fees. Earlier Cornyn-Leahy legislation partially reduced these fees by mandating that a requester could not be charged fees if an agency missed the 20-day deadline to process the FOIA request. But, troublingly, agencies began successfully eluding this fee improvement simply by labeling requests as unusual and claiming these unusual requests were unprotected. The FOIA Improvement Act would definitively end this unusual fee runaround. The FOIA Improvement Act also strengths citizens best FOIA advocate, the ombuds Office of Government Information Services. It gives OGIS more authority and ensures that agencies inform FOIA requesters that they have the right to request FOIA dispute resolution service in lieu of expensive litigation. Additionally, the bill includes a provision requiring agencies to proactively post documents of likely public interest digitally, so citizens can have access without having to file Freedom of Information Act requests. Of course, for these FOIA reforms to take effect, the bill must become a law. Fortunately, the House of Representatives, spurred by the leadership of Reps. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.), Elijah Cummings (DMd.) and Mike Quigley (D-Ill.), unanimously passed a FOIA reform bill this February with 410 votes. In response to the Senate bill, Chairman Issas office stated that he is committed to FOIA reform and looks forward to working with his Senate partners. Given the bipartisan nature of both bills, the forecast for genuine FOIA reform that helps citizens access their governments documents may well be sunny in 2014.Jones serves as the FOIA Coordinator for the National Security Archive, a member of the OpenThe Government.org coalition.A4THEGADSDENCOUNTYTIMES THURSDAY, JULY3, 2014 WWW.GADCOTIMES.COMIhavent enjoyed my neighbors this much since I lived in Hawaii in the s. In those days I was living in a wonderful melting pot of cultures, traditions and habits. Perhaps youll recall my writing about how much I enjoyed the company of neighbors while living in Wahiawa, Hawaii. It didnt matter what our ancestry, race or nationality happened to be; we all loved being with one another in that beautiful state. Since having moved from Gadsden and Leon counties to Lake County, Judy and I have loved being with people of our age with some of the same hopes, expectations and ailments. I have written a few columns recently sharing with you how Judy and I have loved doing some of the tasks for our neighbors that they are unable to do. We also have started to socialize and enjoy certain activities designed for our over 55 community. Bill and Nicole from next door on one side of us have joined us at yoga and water fitness classes. I will probably bring Bill to a tai chi class soon as he has expressed interest in that. I was pleasantly surprised last week when Shirley and Al, neighbors on the other side of us, treated us to a birthday dinner. Yes, Im another year older. As we pulled into the parking lot of the Oak Wood Smoke House, I was even more surprised to see Mary and Jerry, neighbors from across the street drive in. They joined the birthday bash. What a pleasant surprise! How about you? Have you had time to enjoy a neighbor? I know most of you are busy with making a living and socializing or being neighborly might not be very high on your list of priorities of things to do in the course of a day. Tomorrow is the Fourth of July. Perhaps you will be getting together with family or neighbors in order to celebrate our countrys 238th birthday. I couldnt stop myself from looking up some biblical references to neighbors. Its not often I read anything from Leviticus, but there are several passages offering advice and information how to treat neighbors. In Leviticus the Lord spoke to Moses and ordered him to speak to the entire assembly of Israel to issue commands about how to daily live and serve God. One of them was do not defraud your neighbor or rob him. Leviticus 19:18: Do not seek revenge or bear a grudge against one of your people, but love your neighbor as yourself. Loving our neighbors as ourselves is what I have found to be the command most often issued in so many books of the Bible. It goes hand-inhand with the Golden Rule (Matt. 7:12) of doing unto others as we would have them do unto us, one of the subjects Jesus preached upon when He delivered his Sermon on the Mount. I have lived in too many places where neighbors seemed to go out of their way to avoid one another. Judy and I moved from Green Valley, Ariz., from an over 55 community, in fact, because too many of our neighbors were unfriendly and didnt want to bother greeting us on the street whenever we bade them a fine and hearty good morning. We figured by moving to Tucson we would be living with a more diversified population and culture and become more a part of the mainstream than in Green Valley. Wrong! We moved into a development of many diversified peoples and cultures. However, no one seemed to want anything to do with us. Most of the homes had cinder block walls around them, which really discouraged greeting neighbors in the next yard. We missed our Green Valley neighbors not long after moving to Tucson. Being neighborly is a great gesture, and it will probably be you who will have to do the initiating. Of course, Im sure most of you have fine neighbors and have been enjoying them for years. Hope your Fourth is a great one and you also have the opportunity to celebrate the freedom most of us have to enjoy in this great country of ours. Im also quite certain most of you do not take your freedom and freedoms for granted. Its also a great time of year to remind the veterans in your family and neighborhood of how much you appreciate their having served in one of the five branches of the armed forces for you. God bless you. Laura FinleyPeaceVoiceStudents heading off to college for the first time or even to a new campus as a transfer are always full of questions. As an academic adviser at my university, I am happy to answer whatever a student or parent who accompanies their son or daughter might ask. Most of the questions I have been asked, however, are related to the pathway to graduation and career opportunities thereafter. While surely these are important areas for consideration, I believe both students and their parents might benefit from asking a different set of questions that better gets at the real goal of higher education: to transform young people into people who can create a better world. To that end, I offer the following five potential questions students and/or their parents should ask when they meet with academic advisers, university admissions staff, orientation leaders or others with whom new students interact in their first few days. I briefly unpack each here, although surely many other extension questions can be appropriate as well. 1.What is the classroom experience actually like? Will professors work hard to reach learners of all sorts? This is essential, since we all know people learn in many different ways. Since most of the education in the U.S (from K-12 through college) privileges verbal learners who can listen and take notes from which they study, this question is particularly important for those who require different teaching modes. 2. Does advising focus only on coursework and timely graduation? Some might ask, but what else would it emphasize? The answer is: A lot! If faculty members are the advisers, these sessions can be an important one-on-one mentoring session in which career and life tips are shared. Good advisers can help students understand not only how to prepare for their careers, but also how to use the skills and knowledge they are obtaining to better their communities. 3. Are there opportunities for students to interact with faculty and staff outside of the classroom? Students can and should be offered opportunities to engage in campus and community service in which their professors are involved, as well as in research projects. These experiences not only add to students knowledge base but they also enhance their confidence and leadership skills. 4. Is the campus safe? Colleges and universities are responsible for creating safe educational spaces for students. This includes minimizing the risk that students will be harmed by some of the most common crimes occurring on campuses, like sexual assault and dating violence, but also that classrooms and other environments will be safe for students to express their beliefs and ideas without suffering emotional or physical danger. Is there any written campus civil discourse set of standards? Do professors protect that safe educational environment even when uncomfortable conversations are encouraged (for example, would a student be allowed to use a racial, gender, sexual, religious, or other identity slur)? 5. Does the college or university celebrate the achievements of all students? As a former collegiate athlete, I surely benefited from the privilege many colleges and universities afford to student-athletes in terms of accolades. But much research has shown the best educational climates are those in which different skills and knowledges are not only acknowledged but applauded. That means colleges and universities must be equally excited, and share that excitement, when the Ethics Bowl Team, the Model UN, or other clubs, organizations, or students achieve at high levels. I believe advisers should be able to respond to each of the above. If not, it says a lot about the institution. In sum, students, and the parents or others who support them, deserve an education that will not only teach but transform. It is my hope that perhaps this line of inquiry can help people determine whether a specific college or university is the best place for that to occur.Laura Finley, Ph.D., teaches in the Barry University Department of Sociology & Criminology and is syndicated by PeaceVoice.

TALLAHASSEE Adding to the already dynamic recreational opportunities at Florida state parks, the availability of geocaching is now expanding at many locations around the state. The Florida Department of Environmental Protections Florida State Parks is excited to begin offering Operation Recreation GeoTour, hosted by Geocaching.com. Geocaching is an outdoor game using hand-held GPS devices or smartphones. The game is an inexpensive, interactive high-tech treasure hunt that teaches geography and outdoor recreation skills. Participants use location coordinates to find caches. Some caches are easy to find; others are more difficult. Geocaching is a popular activity at Floridas state parks, said Donald Forgione, director of the Florida Park Service. The biggest reward is not finding the cache. Its discovering a place where youve never been or seeing a familiar place in a new way. The new GeoTour stretches from Pensacola to Key West and includes 74 state parks and state trails. With Operation Recreation GeoTour, visitors will be inspired by the recreation opportunities and scenic beauty, which help strengthen families, educate children and foster community pride. The first 75 cachers to visit 40 different caches will earn the Official Operation Recreation Geocoin. Cachers can visit the GeoTours webpage to view each one of the 70 caches and download the Official Tracking Sheet to begin the geocaching adventure. If you need help finding a cache, hiding a cache or understanding some of the geocaching vocabulary, please visit the Florida State Parks Geocaching webpage. Geocaching should have minimal impact to the environment and conscientious land-use ethics should be followed when participating in the activity. The Florida Park Service is the proud recipient of three National Gold Medals for Excellence in Park and Recreation Management, making Florida Americas first three-time Gold Medal winner. The awards were received in 1999, 2005 and 2013 from the American Academy for Park and Recreation Administration and the National Recreation and Park Association. Perhaps one of the most poetic and familiar passages in the gospels is the beatitudes from Jesus Sermon on the Mount. Jesus gathered his disciples together to teach them and began by saying, Blessed are the (fill in the blank), and then told them why they were blessed. For example, he said the poor in spirit are blessed because they would richly receive Gods kingdom; those who mourn are blessed because they would be comforted. The merciful would be shown mercy and the pure of heart would see God. I have a few beatitudes of my own that Id like to add to the list: Blessed are those who can sit still in a quiet room without a Tasmanian devil inside their brain making them crazy and upping their stress. As I write this, the house is quiet. Its raining and theres thunder rumbling in the distance. Its a perfect time to be still and let God speak, but my mind wont let me. Im thinking ahead to what needs to be done next week when what I should be thinking about is what God has done for me today. Once I met a woman who lived in complete solitude no radio, no TV. Her house was so silent you could hear her cats soft paws treading on her tile floor. This woman spoke slowly. Quietly. Deliberately. Gently. Softly. Drove me nuts! Come on, honey, pick up the pace, I wanted to say. Seventeenth-century philosopher Blaise Pascal said that all human evil results from us not being able to sit still in a room. I dont know if thats true, but God once said and still says Be still. He says, In repentance and rest is your salvation. In quietness and trust is your strength (Isaiah 30:15). I think the fear of stillness is the fear of hearing God speak, that he just might say Im a disappointment. But thats a lie. There is therefore no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus (Romans 8:1). Next time its quiet maybe Ill sit still long enough to hear that.Blessed are the skeptics and doubters, for God seems to take great delight in surprising their socks off. One of my favorite Bible people is Thomas, a disciple of Jesus who was a bit of a buzz kill. Nicknamed Doubting Thomas, he tended to see the glass half-empty and expect the worst.

ROBERT ALLENTimes Reporter Three inmates Thomas Dewayne Ponder Jr., Mendez Sawyer and Tharas Eugene Moore were recently charged with battery after a fight inside the Gadsden County Jail. Maj. Robert Barkley of Gadsden County Sheriffs Office explained procedure dictates the three individuals were quickly removed from their group cell and separated. According to Capt. Vincent Crump, compliance officer at the Gadsden County Jail, fights between inmates are exceptionally rare at their facility. But they occasionally happen. The captain said the first thing deputies do when rushing to break up a fight is assess the scene to make sure they are not running right into a riot, a situation Crump says has never occurred at the county jail. Crump said he thinks most of the violent incidents between inmates in the Gadsden County Jail can be attributed, in one way or another, to overcrowding of the facility. The jail, according to Crump, is designed to house about 160 people but at any given time the jail holds 220 to 230 people, 60 to 70 more than its intended capacity. At the Gadsden County Jail, according to Crump, inmates suspected of fighting such as Ponder, Sawyer and Moore are charged for their alleged crimes just the same as people caught fighting when not already incarcerated. After the fight, each person involved was interviewed about the conflict. According to Crump, the three participants were then classified by the jails classifying officera regular procedure to ensure the opposing sides will never again be assigned to the same cell. Crump said this protocol acts as a deterrent, helping ensure violence never becomes a regular way of life inside the county jail walls. Then youll have a jail full of bullies, said Crump, considering the alternative. We dont do the strong will survive sort of thing. Crump said the jail is filled with real people fathers, mothers, daughters and sons. He said the county has a responsibility for their safety.

U.S. cancer survivors face significant economic burdens due to growing medical costs, missed work, and reduced productivity, according to a study by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in a recent Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report. Cancer survivors face physical, emotional, psychosocial, employment and financial challenges as a result of their cancer diagnosis and treatment, said Donatus U. Ekwueme, PhD, a senior health economist at CDCs Division of Cancer Prevention and Control. With the number of cancer survivors expected to increase by more than 30 percent in the next decade to 18 million Americans medical and public health professionals must be diligent in their efforts to help reduce the burden of cancer on survivors and their families. Researchers analyzed data from the Agency for Healthcare Research and Qualitys 2008-2011 Medical Expenditure Panel Survey to estimate annual medical costs and productivity losses among male and female cancer survivors, aged 18 years and older, and among persons without a cancer diagnosis. Lost productivity was estimated by reviewing employment disability (being unable to work because of illness or injury), health-related missed work days, and days spent in bed due to ill health. From 2008-2011, male cancer survivors had annual medical costs of more than $8,000 per person, and productivity losses of $3,700 compared to males without a history of cancer at $3,900 and $2,300 respectively. During the same time, female cancer survivors had $8,400 in annual medical costs per person and $4,000 in productivity losses compared to females without a history of cancer at $5,100 and $2,700, respectively. Study findings indicate: Cancer survivors were more likely to be female, non-Hispanic white, have multiple chronic conditions, or to be in fair or poor health. Employment disability accounted for about 75 percent of lost productivity among cancer survivors. Among survivors who were employed at the time of their diagnosis, cancer and its treatment interfered with physical tasks (25 percent) and mental tasks required by the job (14 percent); almost 25 percent of cancer survivors felt less productive at work. The report also found that about 10 percent of survivors aged 65 years and younger were uninsured and likely to have a larger financial burden compared to survivors with some source of payment for medical services. Through the Affordable Care Act, millions of Americans, including cancer survivors, have access to health coverage and preventive services. For more information, please visit www.healthcare. The authors noted that nearly 32 percent of survivors experienced limitations in their usual daily activities outside of work because of cancer. Among those employed, more than 42 percent had to make changes to their work hours and duties.

A10THEGADSDENCOUNTYTIMES THURSDAY, JULY3, 2014 WWW.GADCOTIMES.COM Photo courtesy of Getty Images Tips for a Perfect Manicure With so many wonderful nail care products available, its easy to turn your home into your own mini salon. Here are a few simple tips to achieve a perfectly manicured set of nails.FAMILY FEATURES Nails have become the ultimate form of selfexpression in beauty. From classic French manicures and gel finishes to elaborate designs and bold neons, nails reflect your own unique style. This season, make sure your tips are healthy and perfectly polished to enhance your overall appearance. Refresh Your LookBrighten up any day or night with brilliant color. Give your nails personality with the beautiful shades fromtheRevlonColorStaycollection with flirty hues, such as Bubbly or Trendy. Brighten Up with Hot HuesSmall, chic updates to your look dont require spending a fortune. Paint those nails pretty with the most sought-after colors of the season vibrant neons. To get the look, check out the Sittin Pretty or Vices Versa shades by Essie. At-Home InnovationsWhile many women rush to their local salon for professional gel procedures, new at-home products provide the same look, feel and durability. Some manufacturers even offer gel products that dont require an LED light for applica tion, like Revlon Colorstay Gel Envy,whichgivesflawless color and brilliant shine in just two steps. Polish Your LookWhether you want a pop of color to match a new outfit or a subdued nude overlay, a perfect polish is the final step needed to complete a well-crafted look. No matter your personal style, there are hundreds of shades to choose from. To nail your ideal shade, visit a store that has a wide color selection of nail polish, like Walgreens, which has over 8,000 conveni ent locations for all your beauty needs.Make Moisturizing a HabitBefore you break out the polish, be sure to also give proper attention to your hands. Invest in a deeply hydrating formula of hand cream or body lotion and apply to hands throughout the day, every day. Some key ingredients to look for include retinol, vitamin B and alpha-hydroxy acids, which work together to provide smooth, supple skin from the fingertips to the palms.Maintain Your ManicureThe signs of healthy nails include a strong, smooth surface, free of dents and dings, with a consistent, uniform color throughout. Invest in quality nail care supplies to keep them looking their best. A complete kit should include a finge rnail clipper, cuticle stick, emery board and a buffer. While the rate at which your nails grow can vary from person to person, filing about once a week is a good way to keep up with maintenance. Of course, filing is a good idea any time chips, breakage or rough edges appear. For the best results, cut and file right after bath ing when your nails are soft. The Studio 35 beauty line offers nail implements and all the basics you need to maintain your mani cure, such as Nail Polish Remover Liquid, Jumbo Cotton Balls and Buffing Blocks.Cuticle CareThe cuticle located above the nail bed also requires proper moisture, so be sure to use a special cuticle formula or your favorite lotion to apply onto this area. If you have brittle nails, invest in a strength ening base coat before you begin to polish, such as Essie Grow Stronger Base Coat, Smooth & Protect. By keeping your nails looking maintained, clean and polished, youll set the tone for your beautiful appearance. For your nail care needs, visit your local Walgreens or shop online at walgreens.com.

Poof! Jesus appeared to him and invited Thomas to take a poke. Jesus couldve chastised him for not believing, but he didnt. He loved Thomas, despite his unbelief. I totally get Thomas. Even though Ive written two books on prayer, I truly dont believe God answers my prayers and then he goes and does and Im left sockless and filled with awe. Each time that happens Im humbled and amazed and a little bit ashamed to realize afresh how kind and merciful God is to me.In a similar vein, blessed are the little of faith, for even a little is enough. Jesus said if you have faith the size of a mustard seed, which is teeny tiny, you can move a mountain, and we all have mountains that need moving. Its a true saying that its not the size of your faith that counts, but what or who your faith is in. Mine is in Jesus, and hes the one who created and sustains the whole world. Even so, sometimes I cant help but try to move mountains by myself, and frankly, that rarely (never) works out.Blessed are the truly contrite, for God shall make them LOL, or at least grin like a Cheshire cat. I firmly believe that only those who know and are well-acquainted with the depth of their sin and the extent of their unrighteousness can fully appreciate the greatness and the magnitude of Gods grace and forgiveness. If you only see yourself as a small sinner, Gods grace is small, too, and what joy is there in that? But for those who see themselves as great sinners, theres no better reason to laugh the laughter of the forgiven and redeemed. We have a saying around my church: Cheer up! Youre a lot worse than you think. But Gods grace is a lot greater than you can even imagine. Blessed are those who know it.Nancy Kennedy is the author of Move Over, Victoria I Know the Real Secret, Girl on a Swing, and her latest book, Lipstick Grace.

GRACEContinued from Page A7 EarthTalkE The Environmental MagazineDear EarthTalk: What can communities do to keep polluters out of their neighborhoods? Wendell Bovey, Los Angeles, Calif.Its unfair that communities which are less organized and less wealthy often shoulder the burden of hosting polluters like landfills, incinerators and power plants. Frequently, these facilities end up in the places that put up the least resistance, either because residents are unaware of the projects planned for their area, or because they dont have the money, organization, knowledge or political clout to mount effective opposition, says the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC), a leading non-profit. The key, says NRDC, is to stay informed: A lot of bad projects slip into communities under the radar, they caution. Companies looking to site unpopular projects that need approval from local zoning boards count on local residents being absent from the public meetings where the projects get discussed. Attending planning and zoning or city council meetings is a first line of defense against letting polluters in. Be prepared by getting meeting agendas in advance and looking for red flags that can be discussed with the powers-that-be in person or at public sessions. And keep up with the Public Notices section of the local paper, where public hearings concerning local land use must be announced by law. Staying informed is one thing, but knowing what to look and listen for is another: Certain types of development pose potential Keeping out polluters a community concern Communities need to be vigilant about plans to site incinerators, landfills, waste transfer stations, sewage treatment plants or other toxic facilities nearby where they might threaten the health of residents.

DEBRA BOSTICKSpecial to the TimesHave you ever been stranded along the road with a flat tire and the tire jack is sliding because you are stuck in the grass, in heavy traffic, tripledigit weather that seems most unbearable and everybody you see or know passes by, looks back, blows the horn and they just keep going? Well, just the other day, three of us were in that same situation coming home from a trip to the grocery store, we broke down on U.S. 90 between Douglas City and Quincy. Finally a van stopped on that hot June day, and the lady driving it stepped out and asked, Do you guys need some help? I have eight young people who noticed you all and would not let me pass by. She said, These teenagers insisted that we turn around and assist you all with changing your tire, and expressed they were eager and excited to help. So, they all got out and got busy changing the tire on the Pontiac sedan. They would not let me, Natasha Scott or Isaiah Green do anything! They got the car jacked up, they took the lugs off and one youth held them in his shirt while the rest took the tire off, put the spare tire back on, and wouldnt even let us put the flat tire in the trunk they did everything and kindly insisted that we do nothing. They were cheerful, excited and polite. They did not complain or grumble about the weather being too hot. They even gave us water to drink as we began to leave. As my family and I began to thank them for their kind deed and just before left, they stood on the side of the road and blessed us with the hymn Amazing Grace, with perfect harmony! Who were these kind teenagers?

They need not be automatically opposed, but they should be carefully scrutinized. NRDC recommends paying close attention to plans for incinerators, landfills, waste transfer stations, water pollution control or sewage treatment plants, bus or truck depots and parking lots, power plants, highways, airports, metal plating and auto body or auto repair shops. Beyond looking out for these and other types of polluting projects, community residents should be aware of and ask questions about any proposed change in zoning or in the local municipal or county Master Plan or Community Environmental Plan. Finding out about a bad project coming your way is only the beginning: If you find that a proposed change might adversely affect your community, gather as much information about the proposal as possible and inform your neighbors about your concerns, says NRDC. Arranging for a time and place where locals can meet to discuss whats happening and organize around preventing it is the next step. Some of the tasks necessary to mounting a good defense include thoroughly researching a proposed facilitys potential impacts (including contacting people in other areas where similar types of facilities have been sited), bringing in experts and reaching out to more community members to align them accordingly. If community members are focused on their goals and have enough support from neighbors they can succeed in either blocking a proposed new facility or expansion, or at least in increasing pollution controls. Another positive outcome could be a revision to local ordinances to prevent future polluters from moving in. For more information, see NRDCs free online guide, You Can Beat City Hall, which outlines how to watch out for and organize against polluting entities in our own backyards, so to speak.

A16THEGADSDENCOUNTYTIMES THURSDAY, JULY3, 2014 WWW.GADCOTIMES.COM 000IOQK ROBERT ALLENTimes Reporter Carter-Parramores class of 1969 and Shanks class of 1979 celebrated extended high school reunions over the June 27-29 weekend. Both classes hosted meet-andgreats at LRs bar on Friday night. Between the two classes, more than a hundred graduates attended the opening event. I come back three or four times a year, said 1969 graduate Gloria James, a retired kindergarten teacher who traveled to Quincy from Key West. It brings back memories of walking the hallways, goofing off in class, sitting out on the grass, and shooting the breeze. James said she could hardly recognize a few of her old classmates. Others she had no trouble identifying. I look for old boyfriends to see how theyve changed see who theyre with now, said James. A lot of them still look the same. Sheryl Smith Anifowoshe, a registered nurse and 1969 graduate, reflected on the changing times. We were young and innocent at that point and it doesnt seem like we did too badly because here we are, she said. I always enjoy it. They still remind me of what we were when we were young. Anifowoshe was also excited to introduce Carl Smart, a man she says was the valedictorian of their class and a gentleman. The classes initially congregated on opposite sides of the bar. But as the evening progressed, and graduates began overlapping. Im especially elated to be with my classmates, said Shaen Williams Jones, a graduate who teaches AP literature in Orlando. Were unique. We actually keep in touch yearround. We have a nucleus of people who keep us informed. Jones said coming home always feels good. When I walked in the door, it was exciting, she said. I felt like a kid. I hugged everyone because you never know when youll see them again. Other classmates seemed to share this same thought. Were blessed to be alive, said Dwayne Ivory, the organizer of the reunion. Ivory said the guys now like getting together and joking about what they cant do now that they could do then. Staff reportExpect to find plenty of ways to celebrate Independence Day with a bang! The West Gadsden Historic Society will host its 10th annual open house from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Thursday, July 4, at the historical Dezell House on 328 East 8th St. in Greensboro. The Greensboro event will also include a bake sale and seafood lunches from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. offered by the Coastal Seafood Restaurant of Panacea. The Greensboro Depot Railroad Museum, which contains a wealth of local artifacts, will also be open to the public from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Greensboro will also be launching fireworks after dark. Meanwhile, the Chattahoochee Main Street organization is planning their all-day Old Fashioned Fourth of July Celebration at Chattahoochee Landing, beginning at 11 a.m. on July 4 and culminating at sundown with a firework show over the river. Contests, games, music and food will all be available throughout the day. According to releases published by the organization, admission will be $3 for each vehicle or $1 for each person walking into the park. A portion of these proceeds will benefit the Wounded Warrior Project. In Havana, the community is invited to The Vets Fest, a lineup of bands from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. on July 4 by the fountain in the downtown area. Any donations collected through the course of the day will benefit the organization Veterans Village. Midway will have a celebration in the park off Peters Road. A deejay will play from about 7 p.m. and fireworks will start around sundown. Class reunions rekindle memories, friendships Four friends from the Carter-Parramore class of 1969 turn to pose for the camera shortly after reuniting at LRs bar in Quincy.

Photo by Robert Allen Fourth of July celebrations planned in Gadsden County TALLAHASSEE The Florida Forest Service wants to remind all Floridians to use fire and fireworks safely and responsibly while celebrating on this Fourth of July. Although we have had a wet summer in some parts of the state, the potential for wildfire still exists, especially in South Florida, said Jim Karels, State Forester. Please be careful when you use fireworks near brush or trees outdoors. Individuals should always check with local laws before using fireworks. Local fire and police departments and the state Fire Marshals Office can also provide guidance. If you plan to use fireworks, please follow these safety tips: 1. Follow all fireworks laws for your county or city. 2. Light fireworks on a cleared area free of any vegetation or debris. 3. Remove any debris from roofs or decks where fireworks could land. 4. Always have a water source available in case of a fire. 5. Aim fireworks away from people, homes and wooded areas. 6. Do not allow young children to light or handle fireworks. 7. Never use homemade fireworks. 8. Discard used fireworks in a bucket of water. 9. Store unused fireworks and lighters out of the reach of children. 10. Report any fires immediately to 911. Since Jan. 1, 1,263 wildfires have burned more than 62,000 acres across Florida. Florida Forest Service offers fireworks safety tips for the Fourth of July holiday
