The passage between U.S. 90 and Highway 12 includes one bridge, visible from Havana Highway when looking south. This span is necessary to traverse the Quincy Creek and the swampy lowlands between the two existing roads. Structurally, the bridge is now sound. Construction personnel can drive and walk over it at will. But the bridge project isnt quite nished. The surrounding landscape has not yet been restored to its original condition and the structure awaits its nishing touch Class-5 coating that functions almost like paint. Pointing over the embankment at the southern end of the bridge, Mike Gintoli, an inspector from Professional Service Industries, said around 1,100 dumptruck loads of earth have already been applied along the bridges swampy base Summer splashing One young fellow hangs on the elephant s trunk as mist from the water jet blows over him July 22 at the splash pad in Quincy.

Commissioner Andy Gay, in particular, has spoken about the desire to slow vehicles along this road while acknowledging the nite number of of cers available to enforce traf c laws all over the city. King has become a major east/west route for motorist driving through the city, said Glenn Sapp, assistant police chief. Almost a mile has no traf c signals or stop signs. In the wake of a recent accident on King Street, where an automobile hit a child, public concern about the speed on the street has only increased. I would say that there is a perception by some citizens that there is a speeding problem associated with King Street, said Sapp. According to Tommy Baker, director of Gadsden Countys EMS, King Street has never stood out as a particularly dangerous passage through the city at least as far as situations that lead to EMS response. Theres a lot of pedestrian traf c, said Baker. Thats their walking area and it is congested during school time.

According to Havana Town Manager Howard McKinnon, the city will issue a letter to all local businesses stating the amendment to the towns former ordinance banning the sales of alcohol on Sundays. We will get a letter to all businesses letting them know about the changes and the ofcial start date of August 10th, McKinnon said.

Photo by Robert AllenThursday meeting for residents to weigh in on routes for next phase of Quincy Bypass projectEven a land ll eventually reaches its expiration date. One, past due, was a topic of lengthy discussion at the July 22 Quincy City Commission meeting. The commissioners considered closing Cell 9 of the Quincy-Byrd land ll. The 5.4-acre cell is one of 11 constituting the entire land ll. Cell 9 was originally permitted as a Class III land ll, a designation allowing for the dumping of household waste. The cell, however, was never used in this fashion, serving instead as a repository for land clearingdebris or LCD. According to the city staffs agenda, the cost of closing this kind of cell would be around $350,000. Consequently, Bernard Piawah, building and planning director, proposed a plan to pay Trinity Inc., a third party, to investigate the land ll and submit certi cation to the Florida Department of Environmental Protection, conrming the cell was only used to dispose of LCD. With this corrected designation, the cell could be closed for around $15,000 including the cost of paying Trinity Inc. I just want to make sure that were con dent that the only thing thats down there will be tree limbs and leaves, said Mayor Derrick Elias. Interim City Manager Mike Wade said he had never seen anything other than yard debris deposited in the cell. Quincy Commissioner Daniel McMillan wanted to understand the stringency of the investigation if, for example, uncovering a random Coke can would of cially invalidate the citys claim.

If Congress actually listened to small business owners, the minimum wage would be going up. Instead, July 24 will mark ve years without an increase since the federal minimum wage was set at $7.25 an hour in 2009. Small business livelihoods depend on revenue, not rhetoric. Small business owners know theres a problem when median household income is lower than it was in 2009, adjusted for in ation, but the Dow Jones stock index has soared to record highs nearly doubling since July 24, 2009. Businesses rely on consumer spending and consumer spending depends heavily on wages. The minimum wage sets the oor under worker paychecks. At $7.25 an hour, the federal minimum wage comes to just $15,080 a year for fulltime work. Thats so low that todays minimum wage workers make less than their counterparts did 64 years ago, accounting for the rising cost of living. Adjusted for in ation to 2014 dollars, the minimum wage was worth $7.40 an hour way back in 1950. Thats so long ago, it was ve years before Ray Kroc founded the McDonalds Corporation, seven years before Leave it to Beaver began on television and nine years before the rst Barbie Doll. Businesses need customers who can afford what they are selling. When a growing number of workers cant make ends meet, it weakens consumer demand and hurts business. Small business owners strongly support increasing the federal minimum wage to $10.10, according to a new national poll of small businesses with employees. A striking 61 percent of small business employers favor gradually increasing the federal minimum wage to $10.10 over two and a half years, and then adjusting it annually to keep pace with the cost of living. Small business support for raising the federal minimum wage is strong across the country. Employers favor raising the minimum wage to $10.10 with a 67 percent majority in the Northeast, 61 percent in the Midwest, 60 percent in the West and 58 percent in the South. Small business owners expect a higher minimum wage to increase consumer purchasing power and help the economy. They also expect it to reduce employee turnover and boost productivity and customer satisfaction. The scienti c nationally representative opinion poll of small business employers was conducted by Lake Research Partners and released by the American Sustainable Business Council and Business for a Fair Minimum Wage. More of the small business respondents identi ed themselves as Republican than either Democrat or Independent. Eric Henry, President of TS Designs, an apparel business in Burlington, North Carolina, said in commenting on the poll ndings, From over 30 years in business, I know rsthand that investing in employees is the best investment a business can make. We need our government to raise the minimum wage so that all workers can make a living and businesses have the stronger customer base we need to create lasting homegrown jobs and pro tability. And by automatically adjusting the minimum wage for the cost of living in future years, we will assure it doesnt again erode and undermine our economy. At its in ation-adjusted high point in 1968, the minimum wage was worth $10.94 in todays dollars. Those were the days when you could work your way through college and not come out with tens of thousands of dollars in debt. American families were upwardly mobile, not downwardly mobile. Small businesses want minimum wage hikeI am pleased to share an experience that happened during our July 4th Honor America Celebration in Tallahassee, where I was working as a Kiwanis Club volunteer. As part of the festivities, 18 of our neighbors took an oath to become naturalized United States citizens. It was such an emotional event, with tears of joy and hugs of accomplishment from family members, friends and complete strangers. These proud new citizens represented ve continents and 13 different counties of origin an impressive tossed salad of people who were sharing a great tradition that has built our nation. As the child of immigrants myself whose parents and grandparents came to this country for freedom and opportunity, I had a lump in my throat realizing my family members went through this very same process and were all embraced by this destination of diversity. As soon as the ceremony concluded, the group marched over to a table set up by our supervisor of elections for the purpose of registering these freshly-minted citizens as voters a cherished act of our citizenship. If you would like to learn more about the citizenship process, including reviewing the 100 civic questions prospective citizens need to be prepared to answer to qualify for naturalization, please visit http:// www.uscis.gov/ citizenship. I think many of us and our children who were born into citizenship would be impressed by the breadth of the knowledge required for naturalization status. This is an election year voters neededWhile Im strictly non-partisan in my advocacy for family policies that improve the odds for health, protection and lifelong success, Im an ardent promoter of participation in all aspects of the political process. I truly believe voting is not just a right; its a sacred responsibility. There are few more in uential civic activities than voting. It takes a few minutes but has impact for years to come. When I think of the many who struggled, suffered, fought and died for our right to vote, Im motivated all the more to have my voice be heard. My Grandma Minnie picketed for womens suffrage as an immigrant teenage girl in New York. She voted for the rst time after the 19th Amendment took effect in 1920 and never missed a vote in her life all 91 years! Her daughter Ruth, my mother, took me by the hand to watch her and my father vote. My Dad was blind so he had to have a poll-watcher vote with him, but he always voted. They listened to the election results at the edge of their seats. Everyone in my family took civic responsibilities so seriously that it was impossible for me to grow up without that same set of values. The pollsters are busy making their case for where voters are leaning. The pundits are sharpening their sound bites. The commercials, mail iers and phone calls are ooding in. But when all the words are said, charges leveled and millions of dollars spent, its we the voters who hold the power to decide who will lead our nation, our states, and communities into the future.Top 10 reasons to vote To honor those in our military who courageously ght for us and our law enforcement of cers, re ghters and emergency workers who respond to our needs and defend the peace at home. Those who sacri ce their personal wellbeing in the name of our safety and security deserve our respect. To honor people who struggled for civil rights, womens suffrage and the ideals of justice for all whose diverse voices are essential for our nations moral health and community vitality. Freedom needs af rmation. To be a good example to our children and grandchildren by exercising the right to vote as a symbol of our faith in democracy. By voting we send a signal of the importance of the choices we as adults make to secure a better future for ourselves, for our children and generations who will follow. Voting is our societys great equalizer. No matter our station in life, income, ethnic heritage or social status, every citizen over age 18 has the same power of one vote. Pollsters do not determine who wins elections; voters do. Predicting the outcome of elections, especially close ones, is at best an inexact science. Pollsters and political pundits have their roles, but like each of us, they only have one vote. Elections should not be about negative ads; it should be about the options we have to promote positive policy actions. Voting for candidates in whom we believe and for or against ballot initiatives we know will affect our future is a perfect counterbalance 4A GADSDEN COUNTY TIMES THURSDAY, JULY 31, 2014 WWW.GADCOTIMES.COM JACK LEVINE 4GEN Journal The Gadsden County Times15 S.

I retired from that honorable profession 13 years ago, and I continue to have alarming dreams about facing my students in the classroom. Usually the nightmare is focused around me showing up for class completely unprepared for that days lesson. My students somehow know it, are unruly, and I cant control them. During my 30-year teaching career I never entered the classroom unprepared so why I continue to have these nightmares in my old age has thrown me for a loop. Perhaps, Im being reminded that I retired at the appropriate time, or could it be the reverse: I should not have retired so soon and continued teaching for a few more years? I havent had an overwhelming desire to reenter the classroom in order to teach since retirement. I did try my hand at substitute-teaching and tutoring highschool dropouts in North Carolina soon after retiring. Thank goodness, none of my pastors at churches weve attended since retirement have asked me to teach Sunday School. They must know I am too old for that job. On that note, Judy and I have been attending adult Sunday School, and our pastor/teacher has been unprepared more than once. The idea of any teacher being unprepared is alarming. I cant help but feel God has been trying to communicate a message to me, but its a cryptic transmission I cant break. The nightmare I had last night was about teaching summer school. I have never taught summer school; I had always given my all during the regular teaching year and gured I wouldnt have enough to give to students needing summer work. In my wild dream I was concerned about what to teach in my wide eld of English to summer students. Larry Cook, a fellow teacher at the school I had taught at, convinced me to teach a book or novel and not to worry about teaching a part of the English curriculum. After all, he stated, You teach reading as part of English, dont you? I decided that James Micheners Tales of the South Paci c would be the book Id use with the students. I thought I could make them love it as much as I did. Only, I had to nd a copy ASAP to make sure it would be suitable for middleschoolers. I hadnt read the book in years and was worried about some of its content being too lewd or sexually inappropriate. I had an awful time trying to nd the book, especially in a middle-school library. This is about the time I awoke from my nightmare concerning yet another episode of being unprepared to teach a class.

Smith told the council he is in the process of acquiring a new traf c analyzer for the city and was headed out of town to an important meeting about this new gadget. McKinnon concluded with a report on other new city developments that included property being sold on 5th and 27th streets, which will bring a new restaurant and a retail store. In addition, an AutoZone is forthcoming and a representative from the company has been in constant contact with McKinnon about the unveiling of the new location. Beginning Aug. 1, WTXL Channel 27 will broadcast its morning news show WTXL Sunrise downtown from 5 a.m. to 7 a.m., highlighting the city of Havana. Sunrise co-Anchor Kellie Bartoli will be live at the Tomato Cafe for the morning show, then she will head over to Joanies Gourmet Market & Fabulous Cafe for the afternoon news. As you can see, activity is picking up in Havana, McKinnon proudly said. WTXL will get us good exposure, and its a great opportunity to learn about our town.SALEContinued from Page 1A during the course of construction. The 1.5 miles of roadway stretching beyond either side of the bridge, connecting U.S. 90 and Havana Highway, also remain incomplete. Gintoli said this is largely a result of the soil remaining too saturated with water during an uncharacteristically wet spring and summer. According to the projects website, www.quincybypass. com, this section of the roadway was scheduled to be constructed over about 20 months at a cost of $13.3 million of state funding. Grandi Lavori Fincosit, an international engineering and construction company, was contracted to build the bypass while Reynolds, Smith & Hill an architectural, engineering, and consulting company was hired to oversee the project. The next segment of the bypass will continue counterclockwise around Quincy, connecting Havana Highway with Attapulgus Highway and then westward to an intersection with Bainbridge Highway. The currently uncleared section of roadway that will connect Havana and Attapulgus highways will run over higher ground, boarded by the Quincy airport and then crop elds. According to County Commissioner Doug Croley, these two particular segments of the bypass will serve several different purposes. Chief among these is the elimination of regular logging-truck traf c through Quincys city square. The bypass will also reduce the trafc intersecting the containers from the BASF chemical plant, which cross Attapulgus Highway from one side of the companys facility to the other. The new route will also allow emergency responders to move more quickly from their base of operations on U.S. 90 to residents north of Quincy, allowing the ambulances and patrol cars to steer clear of busy city streets and intersections. The course of the bypass will be discussed at a public information meeting hosted by the Florida Department of Transportation from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. Aug. 7 at the Bates Community Room in the Gadsden Art Center. This meeting will also address another possible section of the bypass, connecting Bainbridge Highway with Solomon Dairy Road. Representatives from FDOT will provide map displays and invite input regarding the route of the new roadway. STEP Continued from Page 1A tion, telling McMillan he wouldnt consider that possibility a thing of concern. You all are worried about a Coke can, said Elias. Im thinking about a dryer or a washer. Commissioner Micah Brown asked what would happen if the company found household debris. Wade said Trinity may have to dig more test holes or the city might have to pay $350,000 to close the cell with its original Class III designation. Earl Banks, former public works director, stepped forward to speak about the land ll. I dug it, said Banks. I lined it and I was with it from the beginning, from the opening of it until when it closed. There are no refrigerators in there, no washing machines in there. Commissioner Andy Gay motioned to contract Trinity and pursue Piawahs plan. Brown seconded the motion; it passed unanimously.

A southbound county deputy noticed the northbound vehicle traveling along the 400 block of Greensboro Highway. According to the Gadsden County Sheriffs Of ce arrest report, the deputy then turned around, pursued the vehicle and conducted a traf c stop. According to the report, the driver identi ed himself with a Florida drivers license as Pablo Zuniga, 20, of Quincy. The deputy noted two passengers, one in the front seat and one in the backseat all of whom seemed nervous to the deputy. The deputy also recorded a strong scent of marijuana coming from the vehicles open windows. The deputy asked Zuniga to step out of the vehicle and sit on the road in front of the patrol car. According to the arrest report, after calling for backup the deputy had both passengers exit the vehicle and sit behind it. When the rear passenger stepped out, the deputy recorded seeing a large plastic bag of suspected marijuana in clear view. With the arrival of a Gretna Police of cer, the pair began to search the vehicle. According to the arrest report, they found an amount of marijuana indicative of intended re-sale. The pair was soon joined by another county deputy, who began searching a backpack recovered from the backseat of the vehicle. According to the report, the deputy located a handgun with a removed serial number. The deputy also found more marijuana, two scales and packaging materials in the backpack. When the initiating deputy returned his attention to where Zuniga sat on the ground, the law enforcement of cer reportedly found another bag of marijuana inches from the suspects cuffed hands.

If you have any question, please, call Bernard Piawah, Building and Planning Department, at 850-618-0030; ext. 6677 The science of Wantology 101Just when you think theres nothing new under the sun, something new comes along. Theres a new eld of psychology called wantology. Its an actual eld of expertise where wantologists help people discern or de ne their wants and desires and then help them work out a plan to achieve them. Thats what I want a wantologist! Actually, my wants are simple: I want everything to go the way I think it should go. I want my prayers to be answered, plus I want to be able to eat whatever I want without gaining weight and I want to be able to dance. Id love a world without pain and sadness, disease, crime, earthquakes, tornadoes or bugs that bite. Snakes could go away, too. And anyone who wants a job should have one. There might be more things on my want list, but right now that covers the basics. Is there a wantologist who can help me? The problem with getting what you want is that sometimes its not all its cracked up to be. A few years ago, I discovered fancy alcoholic beverages that taste like ice cream or fruit punch and decided what I really, really wanted was to be a sophisticated martini person. At that time, I knew an innovative mixologist who let me try sips of his recipes. Eventually, I began thinking about these fancy martinis all the time and dreaming about the day I would have a whole one all to myself. I started studying cocktails, searching for the perfect concoction, and found one on a bartenders app on my phone. I dont remember the name of the drink, but it had about ve different avored liqueurs, plus enough vodka to pickle a mule. The big day arrived when I decided I could no longer go without this delicious choco-nutty-butterscotchyavored adult beverage of my wildest dreams. Im not proud of this, and Ive already told my pastor, but I actually sat through a church service thinking about this drink.

The applicants name and address are: David Simkins, Site Manager, BASF Corporation, 1101 North Madison Street, Quincy, Florida 32352. Air construction permit No. 0390005-020-AC revises the operating rates and hours for certain existing emission units. There are no physical changes associated with this project, and emission limits and facility-wide potential to emit remain unchanged. The applicant has applied for concurrent processing of the Air Construction Permit and the Title V Air Operation Permit Renewal, incorporating the above minor modification. The permitting authority will issue the Air Construction Permit and the subsequent FINAL Title V Air Operation Permit Renewal, in accordance with the conditions of the Draft Air Construction Permit and the DRAFT/PROPOSED Title V Air Operation Permit Renewal unless a response received in accordance with the following procedures results in a different decision or significant change of terms or conditions. The permitting authority will accept written comments concerning the proposed Draft Air Construction Permit issuance action for a period of 14 (fourteen) days from the date of publication of this Public Notice. Written comments should be provided to the Permitting Authority, 160 West Government Street, Suite 308, Pensacola Florida 32502-5740 (Telephone: 850 -595-8300; Fax: 850 -595-8393). Any written comments filed shall be made available for public inspection. If writt en comments received result in a significant change in this Draft Air Construction Permit, the permitti ng authority shall issue a Revised Draft Air Construction Permit and require, if applicable, another Public Notice. The Permitting Authority will accept written comments concerning the DRAFT/PROPOSED Title V Air Operation Permit Renewal for a period of thirty (30) days from the date of publication of this Public Notice. Written comments must be post-marked and all facsimile comments must be received by the close of business (5:00 pm), on or before the end of this 30-day period, by the Permitting Authority at Northwest District Waste Management/Air Resources Program, 160 West Government Street, Suite 308, Pensacola FL 32502-5740 (Telephone: 850/595-8300; Fax: 850/ 595-8393). As part of his or her comments, any person may also request that the Permitting Authority hold a public meeting on this permitting action. If the Permitting Authority determines there is sufficient interest for a public meeting, it will publish notice of the time, date, and loc ation in the Florida Administrative Weekly (FAW). If written comments or comments received at a public meeting result in a significant change to the DRAFT/PROPOSED Title V Air Operation Permit Renewal, the Permitting Authority shall issue a Revised DRAFT/PROPOSED Title V Air Operation Permit Renewal and require, if applicable, another Public Notice. All comments filed will be made available for public inspection. A person whose substantial interests are affected by the proposed permitting decision may petition for an administrative hearing in accordance with Sections 120.569 and 120.57, F.S. The petition must contain the information set forth below and must be filed with (received by) the Departments Agency Clerk in the Office of General Counsel of the Department of Environmental Protection, 3900 Commonwealth Boulevard, Mail Station #35, Tallahassee, Florida 32399-3000. Petitions filed by the applicant or any of the parties listed below must be filed within 14 days of receipt of this Wri tten Notice of Intent to Issue Air Permit. Petitions filed by any persons other than those entitled to written notice under Section 120.60(3), F.S., must be filed within 14 days of publication of the attached Public Notice or within 14 days of receipt of this Written Notice of Intent to Issue Air Pe rmit, whichever occurs first. Under Section 120.60(3), F.S., however, any person who asked the Permitting Authority for notice of agency action may file a petition within 14 days of receipt of th at notice, regardless of the date of publication. A petitioner shall mail a copy of the petition to th e applicant at the address indicated above, at the time of filing. The failure of any person to file a petition within the appropriate time period shall constitute a waiver of that persons right to requ est an administrative determination (hearing) under Sections 120.569 and 120.57, F.S., or to intervene in this proceeding and participate as a party to it. Any subsequent intervention (in a proceeding initiated by another party) will be only at the approval of the presiding officer upon the filing of a motion in compliance with Rule 28-106.205, F.A.C. All petitions filed under these rules shall contain: (a) The name and address of each agency affected and each agencys file or identification number, if, known; (b) The name, address, and telephone number of each petitioner; the name, address and telephone number of the petitioners representative, if any, which shall be the address for service purposes during the course of the proceeding; and an explanation of how the petitioners substantial interests will be affected by the agency determination; (c) A statement of how and when each petitioner received notice of the agency decision; (d) A statement of disputed issues of material fact. If there are none, the petition must so indicate; (e) A concise statement of the ultimate facts alleged, including the specific facts the petitioner contends warrant reversal or modification of the agencys proposed action; (f) A statement of the specific rules or statutes the petitioner contends require reversal or modification of the agencys proposed action, including an explanation of how the alleged facts relate to the specific rules or statutes; and, (g) A statement of the relief sought by the petitioner, stating precisely the action petitioner wishes the agency to take with respect to the agencys proposed action. A petition that does not dispute the material facts upon which the permitting authoritys action is based shall state that no such facts are in dispute and otherwise shall contain the same information as set forth above, as required by Rule 28-106.301, F.A.C. Because the administrative hearing process is designed to formulate final agency action, the filing of a petition means that the permitting authoritys final action may be different from the po sition taken by it in this notice of intent. Persons whose substantial interests will be affected by any s uch final decision of the permitting authority on the application(s) have the right to petition to becom e a party to the proceeding, in accordance with the requirements set forth above. Mediation is not available for this proceeding. EPA has agreed to treat the draft/proposed Title V air operation permit as a proposed Title V air operation permit and to perform its 45-day review provided by the law and regulations concurrently with the public comment period, provided that the applicant also transmits an electronic copy of the required proof of publication directly to EPA at the following email address: firstname.lastname@example.org.. Although EPAs 45-day review period will be performed concurrently with the public comment period, the deadline for submitting a citizen petition to objec t to the EPA Administrator will be determined as if EPAs 45-day review period is performed after the public comment period has ended. The final Title V air operation permit will be issued after the conclusion of the 45-day EPA review period so long as no adverse comments are received that result in a different decision or significant change of terms or conditions. The status regarding EPAs 45day review of this project and the deadline for submitting a citizen petition can be found at the following website address: http://www.epa.gov/region4/air/permits/florida.htm.

Section 7661d(b)(1), to object to the issuance of any Title V air operation permit. Any petition shall be based only on objections to the Permit that were raised wit h reasonable specificity during the 30-day public comment period provided in the Public Notice, unless the petitioner demonstrates to the Administrator of the EPA that it was impracticable to rais e such objections within the comment period or unless the grounds for such objection arose after the comment period. Filing of a petition with the Administrator of the EPA does not stay the effective date of any permit properly issued pursuant to the provisions of Chapter 62-213, F.A.C. Petitions filed with the Administrator of EPA must meet the requirements of 42 U.S.C. Section 7661d(b)(2) and must be filed with the Administrator of the EPA at: U.S. EPA, 401 M Street, S.W., Washington, D.C. 20460.

PUBLIC NOTICE OF INTENT TO ISSUE AN AIR CONSTRUCTION PERMIT AND A TITLE V AIR OPERATION PERMIT RENEWAL 000IOJE Micheners books, Im sure, saved me from remaining awake for the rest of the night. Most of Micheners books were rather advanced to promote and use in a seventhgrade English class. The Bridges at Toko-Ri, Hawaii and Sayonara were books I had loved and parts of them would be enjoyed by middleschoolers. Michener, more than any author, could take me into another world, as I imagined myself to be the protagonist or main character in one of his novels. Perhaps you remember my sharing with you that I was reading Hawaii while embarking upon my rst sea voyage in the Coast Guard. In addition, I was in love with a Japanese girl from Hawaii and engaged to be married to her. Ive been wondering about what those of you who are teachers will be doing with your summer. Are you taking courses and working toward your next degree? Will you have time to do some traveling before school starts again in August? Will you be teaching summer school? Will you be forced to seek summer employment wherever you can nd it to make ends meet as I had to do when teaching? What about you, students? Are you going to have enough time to read a book or two and still enjoy the time away from the classroom? If you do read I wonder if any of you will nd Michener as I did when still a teenager. Will you be forced to attend a session of summer school? As you can see, my thoughts still turn toward teaching, reading and other ideas concerning education. Why Ive been having nightmares about something so dear to me and that I have loved for so many years is still a little alarming. Dont forget you can contact me at coot5864@hotmail. com if youd like. Have yourselves a great summer. God bless you.WILLISContinued from Page 4A to the ood of negativity polluting the airwaves and lling our mailboxes. While voting is now a bit less convenient than in previous years, access to registration information and early voting are still available for people who want their voices heard. Democracy is a team sport and spectators simply dont count. Its vital to be an informed voter. Pay attention to news reports and editorials about the campaigns. While how we vote is con dential, the fact that we have voted, or failed to vote, is public record. Elected of cials know which individuals and demographic groups are voting, and we who do vote are more likely to be in uential in policy debates. Non-voters are voiceless and by not participating can become victims of their own neglect. Regret is preventable. Nov. 5 is one day too late, and could have, should have are sorry alternatives to acting. Have a no excuses attitude by committing to vote, ask others to join us in voting and promote a positive approach to making a difference among family, friends and colleagues. Be part of making history. Because every indicator points to the prospect that the 2014 election will have impact for years/ decades to come, every vote is even more important. As a Floridian, I know how close elections can be! Being a participant in affecting history gives each of us a sense of pride in participation and the power to touch the future. As we move forward, I welcome invitations to share my 4Generations advocacy messages in keynote addresses, strategy seminars, and assisting organizations with their strategic planning needs on how to become more powerful advocates, connect with community opinion leaders for public policy impact, communicate effectively, and develop nancial resources to achieve their program goals.

Low-income workers spend their dollars on Main Street, not Wall Street. A higher minimum wage will increase sales at local businesses and reduce the strain on our social safety net and our communities caused y inadequate wages. Workers who make a part-time wage while working full time, are not able to support their families or be a good customer base for local businesses in their neighborhoods, towns or cities, said Robert Olson, owner of Olson & Associates in Spring eld, Illinois. Raising the minimum wage is a common sense rststep solution to building a healthy local economy. Most small business owners, like most Americans, support a minimum wage increase.

Just before the conclusion of the July 15 meeting of the Gadsden County Commission, Commission Chairman Eric Hinson told the other commissioners they should not be surprised if he suggested working with the Gadsden County Chamber of Commerce rather than the Gadsden County Development Council, an organization the commission selected less than a year ago to replace the chamber as its economic development arm. The GCDC replaced the Gadsden County Chamber of Commerce as the county governments funded economic development program after a 4-1 vote during their Oct. 1, 2013, meeting. The county then appropriated around $110,000 to the GCDC for its rst scal year, $30,000 of which went toward the Small Business Service Center. During the 2012-13 scal year, the BoCC provided the chamber with $64,020, $19,400 of which went to the SBSC. Hinson said he had wanted the council to have a full-time executive director from the very beginning. The position, a costly creation according to Hinson, still does not exist. Instead, the council is led by a consultant who Hinson said he didnt know. He also said he hadnt been told anything the council was doing. During a Times interview a week after the July 15 meeting, however, Hinsons understanding of the councils progress seemed to have softened, mitigated by subsequent conversations where he said he learned about everything the GCDC is working on. During a separate Times interview, Commissioner Brenda Holt offered comments about economic development in Gadsden County, generally positioning herself as inclusive. The commission will work with anyone, she said. Its not one or the other. Holt said the chamber has somewhat of a track record but the council has not had enough time to develop one, good or bad. I see no sense in not funding both of them, said Holt. They have to come together. Its not logical for the groups to work separately. Holt also said she would like to see all the various boards in the county become more interested in new brainpower and experience. We have people moving in every day, and we dont even know theyre here, said Holt. Its so cliquish. David Gardner, executive director of the Gadsden County Chamber of Commerce, didnt object to the idea of reestablishing closer relations with the county commission. Gardner told the Times he was interested in considering any dialogue that might help business development in Gadsden County. Were still sticking to our mission to make this a better place, said Gardner. We are extremely busy with several different projects. Even without county funding, weve continued to work hard for this community.Commissioner questions countys approach to economic developmentROBERT ALLENTimes Reporter After church it was a Saturday night I met my husband at the martini bar and showed the bartender what I wanted from the app on my phone. He looked at me and said, This will make you walk sideways. Are you sure you want it? I was never more sure of anything ever in my entire life before or since and told him so. He shook his head, laughed and told my husband to take away my car keys. Salivating in eager anticipation, I watched him work his martini magic. He set it in front of me, all frosty cold and enticing and it tasted every bit as amazing as I had hoped. But there was this woman sitting next to me who was talking too loud. And the room began to spin. I may or may not have slipped off my chair and I think I yelled someones name across the room. As I nished my drink and wanted to punch the loudtalking woman I heard God say, I gave you what you wanted.

Yogi Berra As a School Board Member, my main goal will be to ensure that no student falls through the cracks. Moving forward, it is imperative that we focus on several areas of concern: 1. Behavior Management 2. Improving Reading and Reading Comprehension 3. Teacher Recruitment and Retention 4. Improving our High School Graduation Rate 5. Parent Involvement Behavior Management plays a major role in the overall success of our students and teachers in the classroom. Ive seen this firsthand as a Deputy Sheriff. In an effort to successful ly address Behavi or Management in our school system, I propose that WE : Introduce a proposed continuum of services for meeting our students social and emotional needs within and outside of our school system Evaluate the availability of and utilization of collaborative resources with a problem-solving approach Examine the relationship of individual supports to classroom and schoolwide supports Provide a checklist of school-wide and classroom management supports to identify strengths and weaknesses in our current delivery of services Progress in the Gadsden County School System requires a school-wide leadership team that encourages a continuous cycle of improvement. Our success will require staff training, retraining, coaching, inspiration, accountability and a proven comprehensive model to follow. My mission as a School Board Member will be to approve and support educational programs (curriculum) that result in a Brighter Future for our students, teachers and the Gadsden County School District as a whole. 000IWRY But its not what you wanted, was it? No, it wasnt what I wanted. And I do this all the time. Whether its wanting to be a sophisticated martini person, wanting to run my kids lives or wanting to change everyone around me, I just want what I want, and I want it to satisfy my soul. Recently, I heard a pastor say that sometimes the things we want are good things relationships to be whole, people to be healed, families to thrive and yet God withholds these very things from us. Not to be cruel or unkind, but for a greater purpose we might not ever understand. He said, Every problem in my life would either be solved or put in its proper perspective if I really believed God loved me. He was talking about our wants being thwarted, causing us to be angry or disillusioned with God. We think, If you love me, you would give me what I want. Im not talking about fancy martinis, but the deep stuff, the personal stuff, the stuff that makes our pillows wet at night. Sometimes God gives us what we think we want, but it turns out to be something far less. However, in those times, he graciously always gives us himself. Whether we can admit it or not, hes ultimately what we want and we dont need a wantologist to tell us that.

While acknowledging the citizens concern, Sapp also indicated there are factors beyond cars actual speeds that lead to the perception of King Street as a particular problem. He noted King Street passes through more than one school zone and residential areas where people like to walk in the morning and evening. The recent incident on King Street is still under investigation. But, according to the assistant chief, the department currently suspects speed was not a factor in the collision between the car and the pedestrian. Sapp, however, said the department would be reacting to public concern. He wants citizens to know the of cers will be patrolling on King Street and speeding motorists will be stopped and cited.

He also denied any knowledge of the bag of marijuana by his cuffed hands and then amended his story, claiming that one bag as his own. When the rear passenger was questioned about the large plastic bag of marijuana he said it was his, all for personal use. When told the bag was in excess of a personal-use amount, the rear passenger reportedly told the deputy it would last him a long time. All three men were transported to the county jail.

THE FLORIDA DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION 000IUGQ The CRA of Quincy Cordially invites you to a BUSINESS BREAKFAST at the MAIN STREET CAFE (next to the Leaf Theatre) JULY 31 8:30-9:30 a.m., 2014 We Look Forward to Seeing & Speaking with You! This breakfast is open to all interested parties. Quincy CRA Soaring to New Heights Crowds walked freely in and out of Gadsden County Jail on July 23, when Sheriff Morris Young and his of ce hosted an open house at the correctional facility allowing Gadsden County residents a chance to learn more about how the jail operates. This is not a hotel, said Young to the crowd. Youre not going to have it the way you want it. So you got to be tough. But at the same time, weve got to make a strong decision about this jail. Hold these folks accountable. Hold me accountable. Hold the state attorneys of ce, the PDs of ce everybody that makes up our judicial system hold them accountable. Tour groups of 15 to 20 visitors progressed through the facility, stopping at various areas to listen to specialized personnel talk about what they do at the jail. This included a closer look at the facilitys security, surveillance, courtroom, inmate programs, medical capabilities and staff facilities. I take a chance each time somebody walks out of this door, said Young, regarding the frequent requests for release he receives from the community including friends and sometimes family. If they get in trouble, the responsibility is still Morris Youngs. The event began on the lawn where the sheriffs of ce had all their special vehicles on display. Seating and refreshments were set out under a large tent which local leaders, including Young, used as a forum to address the public. According to Young, the inmates who he said he would like to call clients helped put together the guests reception with skills they learned while in jail. All I did was say I wanted to be the sheriff of this community to make a difference, said Young to the crowed just before they lined up into tour groups. Now if you walk around in Gadsden County and havent seen a difference, just walk over to Leon County and walk around the streets. Just walk over there. Because I do try to make a difference in this community. We were averaging about 13 murders a year when I came into of ce. Now, you dont have that. Sheriff hosts jail open house TALLAHASSEE Average retail gasoline prices in Tallahassee have fallen 3.3 cents per gallon in the past week, averaging $3.46/g Sunday, according to GasBuddys daily survey of 201 gas outlets in Tallahassee. This compares with the national average that has fallen 4.9 cents per gallon in the last week to $3.51/g, according to gasoline price website GasBuddy.com. Including the change in gas prices in Tallahassee during the past week, prices yesterday were 11.1 cents per gallon lower than the same day one year ago and are 16.0 cents per gallon lower than a month ago. The national average has decreased 16.5 cents per gallon during the last month and stands 11.7 cents per gallon lower than this day one year ago. The national average as of today has been on decline for a month straight, said GasBuddy.com Senior Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan. The drop in gas prices during the middle of the summer certainly has been welcome relief to families and individuals alike who are hitting the road during the peak of the summer driving season. The national average now stands at its lowest point since March of this year, and will likely drop under $3.50/gallon by midweek. No states in the lower 48 feature average prices over $4/gal, and just 4.1 percent of all stations GasBuddy tracks stand over that level, which is a drop from 8.7 percent a month ago. In addition, a month ago, nearly 75 percent of gas stations were charging over $3.50/gal, while today we see just 38.2 percent of all stations over that levelan impressive decline in price that GasBuddy alerted motorists to weeks ago, DeHaan said.ROBERT ALLENTimes Reporter Gadsden County Sheriff Morris Young said county jail inmates helped prepare the reception for the community open house event at the jail.Gas prices slide
