Despite the August heat outdoors and the heat of campaign races statewide, voters showed their support of candidates in a slow, yet steady stream Tuesday with an estimated 8,668 votes cast. Amid the sea of colorful billboards, Tshirts, yard signs and banners stood a number of local volunteers, business owners and candidates motivating constituents to vote in the nal hours of the 2014 primary election. Gail Pride, who spent her day outside of Precinct 23 waving at passersby, said traf c on Quincys Jefferson Street remained busy even through the six oclock hour as lastminute voters raced to mark their ballots. Id say Ive seen about a good 100 cars come through here, pretty steadily, Pride said. Her rst year urging citizens to get out and vote, she described her experience as very fun and expressed the importance of voting for change in the area. The race to watch for many was between gubernatorial candidates former Democrat Gov. Charlie Crist and incumbent Republican Rick Scott. Scott won 87.88 percent of Republican early votes over Republicans Yinka Abosede Adeshina and Elizabeth Cuevas-Neunder while Crist, whose platform focuses on restoring a post-Scott Florida, won 78.82 percent of the Democrat early votes over fellow Democrat Nan H. Rich. Attorney General candidate Democrat George Sheldon won 58.25 percent of votes, according to preliminary results, over Democrat Perry E. Thurston. The State House race saw incumbent Democrat Rep. Alan Williams retaining his District 8 seat against candidate Democrat Dianne Williams-Cox with 65.29 percent of votes.

VAUGHNFor the Times County Commissioner Doug Croley loses District 2 seat to challenger Anthony Dr. V Viegbesie Paving the way for progressAn area nonprofits plans to occupy a larger space in Quincy has already prompted a big improvement. At the monthly meeting of the Gadsden County Chamber of Commerce on Aug. 21, Goodwill Industries-Big Bend Inc. CEO and President Fred Shelfer announced plans to move the current retail thrift store that occupies the same plaza as Family Dollar and other businesses to a nowvacant location last anchored by an IGA grocery store. The new location will allow the Goodwill store to expand from 6,500 to 10,000 square feet enough room to open a training center for the community in part of the space. In anticipation of the new occupant, the property owner has already had the parking lot, which had been pocked by many potholes, repaved. It should be open by the end of the year, Shelfer said. Those who seek to improve their employ-ability by taking training classes at the Goodwill Career Training Center will have the opportunity to improve their work history by applying for temporary positions at other Goodwill locations. Shelfer noted that this could also be a chance for someone to transition from incarceration to regular, gainful employment. According to a Goodwill press release, re-entry assistance available to quali ed ex-offenders will include help obtaining identifying documents, temporary work experience, vocational training, computer literacy, job placement and hiring services, and on-the-job training opportunities. The Gadsden/Quincy Career Training Center will be open to all Gadsden County residents and all services will be free to the public.

Im an English teacher, have always been one and will be until I die. I have spent all of my professional life helping students of all ages to write and read to the best of their abilities and to be effective communicators. I cant help myself. Nor can I help myself from cringing in my pew during a Sunday morning church service when the minister or a lay leader/reader mispronounces a Biblical name or place or doesnt read with conviction, ef ciency and passion. Too many times I have attended a Sunday school class or a Bible study led by someone not prepared well enough. One doesnt have to have a college degree in English to read the Bible with skill, passion and precision. Nor does one have to be a teacher to become an effective and interesting Sunday school teacher or facilitator. The Bible is presented to parishioners and Sunday school attendees as Gods holy word, sacred, true, and given or passed down to us from expert, passionate biblical scholars over a period of centuries. If Gods word as presented in the Bible is going to be read orally to the congregation or Sunday school students it ought to be studied, well prepared, and the reading of it practiced, diligently religiously if you will. In my church our minister doesnt believe in sharing the reading of Scripture. In fact, he has shared with me that he likes to do his own Scripture reading. Fine. What minister in any church should be discouraged from reading his own Scripture? However, if that is the case, I expect that minister to do his/her utmost in preparation for reading Scripture, publicly, to the congregation on any given Sunday. There are so many aids available on the Internet to help one with pronunciation. There may even be a person in the congregation who would willingly help. Yes, I love reading Scripture. It is one of the things I do well. I practice. I look up or check myself on dif cult names and places for correct pronunciation. I also listen to the word audibly pronounced for me on a couple of websites. Most of my pastors or retired pastors after hearing me read have asked me to read regularly at Sunday services. I was so proud, so honored, to have my chance at reading Gods word to the congregation with precision, passion and preparation. At the present time I am thankful I do have a chance to sing with our choir or solos now and then, another way I can show my love of the Lord. So many pastors dont seem to realize that if their Scripture or Scripture lesson is to be read directly ahead of a sermon, this is a most crucial time in that mornings worship service, setting the stage for the sermon. If he stumbles while reading, or mispronounces names and places, the positive effect of his sermon to follow probably has dwindled. To err is human, and we all do it, including myself. However, reading Gods word to a congregation should be taken with the utmost seriousness. It should be read with passion, expertly, and with a love for His word. When this happens most parishioners are apt to be more excited and ready to listen with eagerness to the sermon immediately following. Its very dif cult some of the time to be a teacher, writer, newspaper columnist and a good Christian and to be humble and kind. I love writing positive things about good people; thats what this column is all about. Sometimes, however, I feel strongly that polite criticism is in order and should be written. I know the Lord wants to use me more than I am being used. My only desire is that God is being served as greatly and as diligently as possible by my fellow church members and me. God bless you. 4A GADSDEN COUNTY TIMES THURSDAY, AUGUST 28, 2014 WWW.GADCOTIMES.COMLets take a little trip down memory lane, which in this day of high tech and low retention means anything that happened more than ve minutes ago. Still lets hearken waaaay back to 2008 and that primary campaign ad for Hillary Clinton, the one that started, Its 3:00 in the morning at the White House and then went on to ask who would answer when the phone rings and some crisis comes a-callin. The idea was that Hillary had the necessary experience to deal with the matter, while neophyte Barack Obama did not. We all know how well that worked for her. Fast-forward six years, and President Obama now has had plenty of experience with sleep deprivation from taking those calls. (Have you noticed how gray his hair has gotten?) Hillary got the consolation prize: He named her his rst secretary of state. So here we are, facing 2016. Once again, shes running for president, or at least dabbling in it. Hes maxed out, cant run anymore. Its August, hes own the coop, and when the Hillary tees off on the PresidentSunday, Sept. 7, is Grandparents Day. Im pleased to re ect on the importance of grandparents in the lives of our families: For most of us, no one provided a more vital link to our heritage and family history than our grandparents. Wherever they were from, and no matter their background, our grandparents provided a rst-person connection to our past. Whether by birth or through adoption, grandparents are treasures deserving of honor and respect. Like all of us, none were perfect, but most were there for us when we needed them most. The wisdom of our elders is irrefutable. I distinctly remember so many ways my elders, especially my dear Grandma Minnie, influenced me by example. Here are a bakers dozen life lessons I learned at Minnies kitchen table Love knows no boundary. Keeping close to the people you love, and learning to love them without having to love everything they do, is the key to family strength. You dont have to be perfect to be loved. Minnie held tight to those she needed and those who needed her. An open door is an open heart. Minnies kitchen table was a place where others came to eat and be fed spiritually. If a neighbor or their family had a problem, she was there for them. If I needed them, Id hope for the same treatment. The golden rule does not tarnish. Waste not; want not. Finishing our meals or saving leftovers for another time is one of the most compelling constants for our elders. Many remembered the pangs of deprivation, so therefore valued the food on their plates and the treasure of having enough to eat for everyone. Minnie always made a little extra, just in case an unexpected visitor came for dinner. Charity begins at home. As little as they had, our grandparents always seemed to nd a way to help others in need. Minnie had a tin can in which she would drop coins...a little something for those with less than us. Their example of giving, both through volunteer time and money provided the family a clear sense of appreciating the value of what we had. Reaching across the street as a way of helping others is good for them and us, too! Cleanliness is The Gadsden County Times15 S.

What does it even mean in your point of view? How is it gained? Is it permanent? What would you do to either attain it or keep it? The dictionary de nes freedom in two ways: 1) its the power or right to act, speak or think as one wants without hindrance or restraint, or 2) its the state of not being imprisoned or enslaved. That being said, explain to me how something that has taken over 265 years for one race, and years for others races (particularly those of color) to obtain, is often taken for granted. It is often abandoned and we are seemingly unaware of the need for a continuous effort, which greats like Martin Luther King, Frederick Douglas, Rosa Parks, Cesar Chavez fought for and blindly passed on to upcoming generations. My point is simple: Why be given so little and then sit down while so much more is still yet to be gained? My people listen and read (for some) carefully, the ght must continue. Past and coming generations are absolutely counting on us, and I intend to take up the call. The journey will not just be for blacks, but its for all white, Latino, Native American, or whomever, because clearly the Declaration of Independence says that We hold these truths to be selfevident, that all, not some, but all men are created equal. I have not a desire for fame, fortune or even recognition. I simply cant continue to let all of my people continue to head for destruction. So Im asking all, near and far, to look at this and prayerfully you can see my concern. I would love to share my vision and will make myself available to speak anywhere you feel appropriate.

Financial Impact Statement: This amendment does not increase or decrease state revenues. The state revenue restricted to the purposes specified in the amendment is estimated to be $648 million in Fiscal Year 2015-16 and grows to $1.268 billion by the twentieth year. Whether this results in any additional state expenditures depends upon future legislative actions and cannot be determined. Similarly, the impact on local government revenues, if any, cannot be determined. No additional local government costs are expected. Full Text: ARTICLE X MISCELLANEOUS SECTION 28. Land Acquisition Trust Fund. a) Effective on July 1 of the year following passage of this amendment by the voters, and for a period of 20 years after that effective date, the Land Acquisition Trust Fund shall receive no less than 33 percent of net revenues derived from the existing excise tax on documents, as defined in the statutes in effect on January 1, 2012, as amended from time to time, or any successor or replacement tax, after the Department of Revenue first deducts a service charge to pay the costs of the collection and enforcement of the excise tax on documents. b) Funds in the Land Acquisition Trust Fund shall be expended only for the following purposes: 1) As provided by law, to finance or refinance: the acquisition and improvement of land, water areas, and related property interests, including conservation easements, and resources for conservation lands including wetlands, forests, and fish and wildlife habitat; wildlife management areas; lands that protect water resources and drinking water sources, including lands protecting the water quality and quantity of rivers, lakes, streams, springsheds, and lands providing recharge for groundwater and aquifer systems; lands in the Everglades Agricultural Area and the Everglades Protection Area, as defined in Article II, Section 7(b); beaches and shores; outdoor recreation lands, including recreational trails, parks, and urban open space; rural landscapes; working farms and ranches; historic or geologic sites; together with management, restoration of natural systems, and the enhancement of public access or recreational enjoyment of conservation lands. 2) To pay the debt service on bonds issued pursuant to Article VII, Section 11(e). c) The moneys deposited into the Land Acquisition Trust Fund, as defined by the statutes in effect on January 1, 2012, shall not be or become commingled with the General Revenue Fund of the state.

WWW.GADCOTIMES.COM GADSDEN COUNTY TIMES THURSDAY, AUGUST 28, 2014 9Anext to godliness. A clean home is the symbol of how we should conduct our lives in the sight of others. Minnie swept the sidewalk in front of her house almost every day. When our guests come to our door, they should have a clear and welcoming path. Picking up after ourselves so those who follow us have a clean path is a great lesson personally and environmentally. Progress comes in little steps. Expecting too much too soon is unreasonable. A drop plus a drop lls up the pot was among Minnies favorite phrases. Every day is another opportunity to take positive steps...for family and for community. Her crocheting and knitting prowess proved that each stitch is essential to make a beautiful garment. Laughter is the closest distance between two people. Its a pleasure to enjoy the company of others and to hear a good joke, tell a witty story, and listen to the folk tales of the old country. These are among lifes great gifts. Frowns make more wrinkles than smiles, Minnie would say with glee. Honest compliments are among our most valued possessions. Giving credit when credit is due, and honoring the leadership of those whose energy and enthusiasm helps others, is important. People shouldnt assume you know about their good works. Tell them they are appreciated. And if someone compliments you, accept the gift with gratitude and grace. If theres a problem, try to x it. Minnie knew that youll sit a long time with your mouth wide open before a roasted chicken will y in. Ignoring a problem is neither smart nor sensible. Even a failed attempt at solving the problem is better than not doing anything. Dont leave politics up to someone else. As an immigrant girl, Minnie felt the sting of discrimination and injustice. She was a suffragist as a young woman, and upon becoming a naturalized citizen, she voted for the rst time in 1920. Minnie celebrated that right by never missing an election in her life. Even into her 90s, when she had to helped into the voting booth, she did her duty with dignity. Power is not given, its won with courage and hard work, she said. Words without deeds are empty. Someone who makes a promise and doesnt keep his word is an emotional thief. Its better to keep quiet than make a meaningless offer. How many people set others up for disappointment by saying rather than doing? Our children learn from us not so much by what we say, but by what we do. Patience pays dividends. Whether it was baking her famous cinnamon buns or preparing a full holiday dinner for 16, Minnie knew that the process required patience and persistence. Traditional food preparation may seem archaic, but the beauty of yeast-raised dough, simmering spices, and closely watched pots gave the family an appreciation of the love that went into so many meals. I like to cook because when I see the faces of satis ed eaters, Im happy. Resting is a reward for working hard. Minnie earned her rest, and made the time to relax, listen to music, observe nature, or read for pleasure. Too much of anything isnt good...including work. When the Sabbath came, Minnie understood that rest provided the emotional and physical renewal she needed for a productive week ahead. Im not alone in receiving the gift from my elders life treasury. Family history is a living legacy. Its not only the story of who our elders were, but it de nes in many ways who we are. Over the centuries, our nation has been and continues to be populated by those whose lifes story is worth telling. Whether they came for freedom or by force in slavery, the values our grandparents brought with them are heirlooms which our children deserve to inherit. Their sacri ces fueled our freedoms. Those who survived became advocates for causes and people who needed them..... their lifes mission was to make the world a bit better than the one they experienced. While Im not yet a grandparent, my appreciation of family history is translated to our sons, and Im con dent that someday, they will in turn have the opportunity to pass along the generational gift. Never hesitate to exercise your advocacy voice...in respect for those who paved our path to a better future....our valiant veterans, ardent activists and champions for causes which deserved their passion. Please consider recording your family history, share the stories with your children and grandchildren, and make sure that treasured family photos are duplicated and records are kept safe and out of harms way. The Train Ride of Our Lives (adapted from Mark Anthony, author of Never Letting Go) At birth we boarded the train and met our parents and other caregivers, and we believed they would always travel by our side. However, at some station our older family members will step down from the train, leaving us to take this journey without them. As time goes by, other people will board the train; and they will be signi cant.....people such as our siblings, relatives, friends, teachers, coaches, and colleagues. If were fortunate, we will travel with the love of our life and perhaps children and grandchildren if were graced to have them. Some of these riders will step down and leave a permanent vacuum. This train ride will be full of emotions... joy, sorrow, fantasy, expectations, heartfelt hellos and sorrowful good-byes. Some will leave the train with unexpected departures, others with a more natural passage. Success consists of having as good a relationship with as many passengers as we can....requiring that we give the best of ourselves. The mystery to everyone is we do not know at which station we ourselves will step down. So, we must live in the best way.....to love, to forgive, and to offer the best of who we are. It is important to do this because when the time comes for us to step down and leave our seat empty we should leave behind beautiful memories for those who will continue to travel on the train of life. I wish you a joyful journey. Reap success, share love, make a positive difference in the lives of others and be thankful for the journey. Last, I thank you for being one of the passengers on my train. Looking for a few good recipesI am in the process of creating the Good Cause Cuisine All Kitchens Cookbook, a compilation of savory recipes and advocacy strategies. The idea is simple...a cookbook meant to motivate gatherings getting together to enjoy good food and share ideas about improving the community through a diversity of strategies. Food for thought and enjoyment....engaging in the eating and advocacy arts! I am a passionate cook and look forward to sharing the cookbook with my advocate network later in the year. Visit this web page for instructions for submitting your recipe http://bit.ly/1rKzbMT/. Your recipe can be in any category you wish....appetizer, entree, dessert....items for breakfast, lunch or dinner.... Please note there is space for the story behind the recipe...feel free to share information about who passed the recipe to you and its ethnic origin as examples. The deadline for submission is Sept. 15, so please get to this effort of the heart as soon as possible! Feel free to e-mail me any questions you have about this opportunity to participate... please share this opportunity with others...and happy cooking for a cause!!Keeping in touch As we move forward, I welcome invitations to share my 4Generations advocacy messages. I am available for keynote addresses, strategy seminars, and assisting organizations with their strategic planning needs. My focus is 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. Send me an email to let me know what you have in mind! I would enjoy hearing your thoughts...... Jack Levine is founder of 4Generations Institute; he can be reached at Jack@4Gen.org or 850567-5252. http://4Gen. org/.LEVINE Continued from Page 4A FRANKEN Continued from Page 4A phone rings at the White House at 3 a.m., no ones home ... Hes playing golf in Marthas Vineyard; he and the fam are hobnobbing with the elite in a spot that has become a symbol of privileged leisure. In the process, hes given Republicans still another opportunity to bludgeon him, which is one of their specialties. Actually, comparing a vacationing president to Nero ddling while the world burns is a bipartisan cheap shot, one of the few endeavors that are. Still, the Obamas make it so easy. Say what you will, frolicking with the rich and famous in an exclusive venue is lousy optics, which is the political consultants way of saying it looks cheesy. No matter how many times the White House validly points out that POTUS is having a working vacation, fully in touch using all his sophisticated, albeit portable, communication devices, hes still teeing off while Iraq is teetering, under attack by ISIL fanatics, while Ukraine is ghting off Vlad Putin, while Gazas deadly hostility continues. Here at home, Ferguson, Missouri, erupts while many Americans are ghting off the debt collectors. True, the chief executive interrupts his golf games to address each crisis, but still ... Hillary Clinton also is on the Vineyard, doing still another book signing, fresh off her interview with The Atlantic, where she stuck the knife into her former boss in her inimitable style. She praised his intellect and dedication, yada yada yada, and then made clear that she was separating herself from his lackadaisical approach to global crises. Great nations need organizing principles, she purred, and dont do stupid stuff is not an organizing principle. Of course, she wanted to have it both ways, so her spokesperson quickly put out a statement assuring us that nothing she said was an attempt to attack him, his policies or his leadership. Not only that, but theyd be partying together and would be hugging it up, whatever that means. So, thanks to Hillary, golf is not the only game-playing in which the president must participate. As for that phone call, lets hope the White House has call forwarding. (c) 2014 Bob Franken Distributed by King Features Synd.BSC professor presents paper on Hemingway in ItalyBainbridge State College English and Humanities Professor Dr. Marina von Hirsch attended the 16th International Biennial Hemingway Society Conference in Venice, Italy, where she presented a paper cowritten with her husband, Ernie Rehder, based on the works of American novelist Ernest Hemingway. This years conference was hosted by Venice International University on the island of San Servolo, with more than 200 participants from all over the world in attendance. For scholars wishing to present papers at the conference, each paper had to correspond with the theme chosen for the year. This years conference was based on Hemingways novel, Across the River and Into the Trees, which takes place in Italy. In addition, Hemingway was wounded in Italy during World War I and visited the country many times throughout his life. These factors contributed to why the conference was held in Italy this year. During the six-day conference, scholars had the opportunity to learn from fellow scholars while panels were held several days for presenters. Von Hirschs paper explored Cubist techniques in Hemingways Across the River and Into the Trees; her paper will be published in The Hemingway Review later this year. In addition to presenting the paper at the conference, von Hirsch and the other members explored the Veneto, a region Hemingway immortalized in Across the River and Into the Trees. Other activities included a day trip to Fossalta di Piave, the site of Hemingways wounding; and San Michele al Tagliamento, where members visited Villa Ivancich. Von Hirsch considered the opportunity to present her work in Italy as an honor. Im very proud I had this great opportunity and it was wellaccepted, she said. It was intellectually invigorating to talk to scholars and exchange ideas. She also plans to incorporate what she learned and experienced at the conference in her teaching at BSC. All of the experiences through pictures will be incorporated with lectures, she said. This is what I teach in Literature or Humanities. Im grateful to Bainbridge State College for its support in my scholarly endeavors. The 17th Biennial International Hemingway Society Conference will be in Hemingways hometown of Oak Park, Ill., June 2016.

WWW.GADCOTIMES.COM GADSDEN COUNTY TIMES THURSDAY, AUGUST 28, 2014 11A Across the continent, the dark and dusty corners of thousands of basements and barns contain hidden treasures: skillets, Dutch ovens, griddles and other cookware cast in iron, possibly from a century or two ago. Though once abandoned for ashy designer cookware, cast iron is now regaining its rightful place in the kitchen. People love cast iron because itll last a lifetime if you take care of it right, says Russ Howser, president of the Griswold and Cast Iron Cookware Association. Cast iron can take and hold the heat, whether atop a stove, inside an oven, under a broiler, or over charcoal. Soups and stews seem to develop a richer avor, skillet-fried potatoes achieve that perfectly crisp texture thats just not possible with other cookware, and pan-seared steaks and burgers turn a beautiful brown outside while retaining full avor and juiciness within. Professional and home cooks alike also value irons versatility: One pan can go smoothly from stovetop to oven, making it ideal for browning followed by braising. This cookware has a lighter side, too. Seasoned skillets and pots develop a nonstick surface that requires very little cooking oil and is a breeze to clean. Foods wont stick if you care for cast iron properly, and you dont have to worry about eating a chemical coating every time you use it, says Howser. Casting callYou can purchase a full line of cast-iron cookware brand new, or use a little elbow grease to transform a neglected piece into a coveted, lifelong possession. The easiest and least expensive way to nd used cast iron is to ask friends and relatives for unwanted skillets or pots. Castiron cooking pieces have been around for centuries, and eagleeyed shoppers can still nd early iron pots and skillets for surprisingly little at ea markets and yard sales. Ive also found many great bargains online. Be prepared for sticker shock on some items, however. A bit of snobbery exists among cast-iron collectors, resulting in escalating values for vintage ware by Griswold, Wagner and a few other manufacturers. The earlier Griswold pieces can fetch several hundred dollars or more at auction. What to look for? Dont be afraid of some light surface rust, or of grease or carbon buildup. Its best to avoid cracked, warped or deeply pitted pieces though, as these are signs that the piece has been severely neglected or abused. While vintage pieces are often more sought after, several modern manufacturers, including Lodge Cast Iron and Camp Chef, offer a great variety of products from bleskiver pans to woks at reasonable prices. Many items are preseasoned so you can use them immediately. Enamel-coated cast iron from manufacturers such as Le Creuset is also widely available, and although this cookware does not require seasoning, its generally much more expensive, cant withstand high heat, and foods sometimes scorch or stick.Reconditioning and seasoning vintage piecesWhat to do next depends on the condition of the piece. If it appears pristine, youve lucked out. Simply wash it with soap and hot water (this is the only time soap will ever touch your piece), and thoroughly dry it. Then, rub in a light coating of cooking oil or lard, and thats it; your piece is ready to use. To clean an old neglected piece, rst soak it in a lye solution to remove the grease, says Howser. Then, wearing protective gloves, use steel wool and water to remove any remaining build-up. Rinse with clear water, and dry immediately. Repeat the scouring, if necessary. An alternative to using lye is to spray the piece with oven cleaner and seal it in a plastic bag overnight. Be sure to follow the directions on the can and wear safety glasses and rubber gloves. Follow up by scouring with steel wool. To remove rust, place the piece in a mixture of equal parts water and white vinegar for up to four hours. Remove your cast iron from its bath and scrub with hot water. Dry thoroughly. Now your cast iron is ready to season. Seasoning protects cast iron from rust, seals its pores, and keeps foods from sticking. To season a piece of cast iron, set the cookware in a cold oven, then heat it to 250 degrees Fahrenheit. After about 30 minutes, use gloves or a potholder to remove the piece from the oven. Use a soft clean cloth to rub in a coat of cooking oil or lard. The heat opens the pores of the metal, allowing the fat to penetrate. As the piece cools, wipe it with another clean cloth to remove excess fat. Your cast iron now has a long-lasting nonstick coating and is ready to use.Cooking with cast iron Cast iron is an excellent conductor of heat, but it needs to be treated kindly. Dont place a cold pan on an already hot stovetop. Instead, place the pan on a cold stove, and then start the burner. This helps to prevent warping or cracking. If you are cooking on a woodstove over a re or on charcoal, its a good practice to gradually heat the pan in the oven or another heat source prior to cooking. Most anything can be cooked in cast iron. The only foods I generally avoid are acidic items that require long simmering, such as tomato sauce. The acid can leach iron from the cookware, resulting in a slightly rusty avor. A little discipline is called for at cleanup. Do not soak cast-iron pots and pans in the sink. Also, do not put them in a dishwasher. Instead, hold the piece under running hot water and clean it with a plastic pad or brush, just as you would other nonstick cookware. The food should rinse off quickly and easily. If you nd that some food has stuck to the cooking surface, resist the temptation to use soap. Soap will remove the pans seasoning. Instead, just add water to the pan, bring it to a simmer on the stovetop, and use a wooden utensil or other tool to loosen the food residue. Dont be afraid to clean your pan only with water. It will be sterilized by heat each time you cook. Following these few simple dos and donts will ensure the longevity of your cast iron for generations. Step up to cast iron, and your descendants just might nd your classy cookware in a dark and dusty corner of your barn some day. Excerpted from GRIT, Celebrating Rural America Since 1882.

In the past three months there have been indicators that I am perimenopausal. I have a very large broid. It is described as six months in size. I am not a candidate for embolization. I presently have no painful symptoms, and, with iron therapy, I am no longer anemic. Doctors have recommended a hysterectomy. However, I am reluctant, as I am so close to menopause and believe the tumor should shrink. What are the risks of not removing this large broid? I am aware this surgery is common; however, I have profound concern about the risk of blood loss. L.L. ANSWER: A broid, also called a leiomyoma, is a (usually) benign tumor of the uterus. Fibroids may cause symptoms of bleeding, pain or pressure, or may have no symptoms at all. Gynecologists describe the size of the uterus with its broid as the equivalent of a pregnant uterus, so six months is a large broid indeed. Gynecologists will follow the size of the broid by exam or ultrasound in order to show that it is stable. A growing broid is suspicious for a sarcoma, a malignant tumor that 1 percent to 2 percent of broids transform into. Because broids respond to hormones, they indeed tend to stabilize or shrink at menopause, when female hormone production decreases. If the broid is stable in size and isnt causing symptoms, then there is no need to have surgery. You can see what happens to the broid with time. Questions about uterine broids are answered in the booklet of that name. To obtain a copy, write: Dr. Roach -No. 1106W, Box 536475, Orlando, FL 32853-6475.

ROACH: How long do shin splints last? Is there anything besides ice that will make them go away faster?

12A GADSDEN COUNTY TIMES THURSDAY, AUGUST 28, 2014 WWW.GADCOTIMES.COM By MARTY COHEN Its one of the fundamental truths of college football, or all college sports for that matter, that all it takes is one year for inexperienced youth to become grizzled veterans, or vice versa. College rosters are ephemeral and players come and go within or a four or five-year window, so the constant personnel turnover often makes for uneven lineup distribution. By nature, a deep experienced group can be a young, green bunch a year later, with the opposite effect holding true as well. And the old, old blueprint of how players developed redshirt first year, get a taste in year two, prominent backup in year three and then starter for last two years is an anachronism, reserved for primarily a few offensive linemen these days. Heck, Vernon Hargreaves III is a veteran leader, a team spokesman, and hes been on campus barely more than 12 months. Due to attrition players transferring, getting dismissed from school, turning pro early, etc. college rosters are often tilted toward young players. Large recruiting classes dont usually start dwindling for a year, so the makeup becomes freshmansophomore heavy. The 2014 Florida football team is no exception. This is Will Muschamps fourth year, meaning he has had just about a complete recruiting cycle to man the roster with his recruits only eight players remain who were signed by Urban Meyer and his staff. Yet 51 of the 82 scholarship players (62.2 percent), are underclassmen 23 true freshmen, 11 redshirt freshmen, 11 true sophomores and 6 redshirt sophomores. The junior class isnt large 10 true juniors, 4 redshirt juniors with 17 seniors, 7 fi fth-year guys and 10 true seniors. So nearly two-thirds of the 2014 roster are listed as freshmen and sophomores. The way things have shaken down, the Gators will sport an unusual look on the starting units, mostly veterans up front and mostly young players at the skill spots. Now some of the youngsters may have more on-fi eld experience than a few of the upperclassmen, but by and large, it will be veterans along the line of scrimmage augmented by young pups at the skill spots. Well see how this mix fares. On offense, if the Gators were to start today, the top six offensive linemen are upperclassmen fthyear seniors in Chaz Green and Max Garcia, a true senior in Trenton Brown, a pair of fourth-year juniors in Tyler Moore and Trip Thurman and a true junior in D.J. Humphries.

FLORIDA FLORIDA gators gators By TIM LINAFELT The numbers say that Mario Edwards Jr. had ve tackles, three tackles for loss and a sack in the BCS National Championship Game. On paper, thats a nice, if not eye-popping, performance. Edwards teammates, though, say that his effort in corralling Auburns run-heavy offense in Pasadena was a huge reason the Seminoles were able to complete their comeback and win the national title. He played his behind off, FSU left tackle Cameron Erving said. He realized his potential in that game. It was a Come to Jesus (moment) for him. Edwards, a defensive end who stands a startling 6-3, 294 pounds, arrived at FSU as the top-ranked high school football player in the country. With a highly-touted defensive end comes expectations for a high sack total. And the numbers say that, so far, Edwards hasnt delivered. Despite two years as a starter, he only has ve sacks on his career ledger. Those numbers, though, dont tell the whole story. Not even close. FSU coach Jimbo Fisher bristled recently when a reporter asked about Edwards 3.5 sacks last year and perhaps hinted that Edwards had a disappointing year.Sacks dont equate to greatness, Fisher said. Youd better go watch that lm. If you watch that lm, that guys a heck of a football player. Fishers early tenure was marked by a steady stream of defensive ends who compiled gaudy sack totals. Brandon Jenkins, Bjoern Werner and Cornellius Carradine all racked up big-time numbers on the way to becoming NFL draft picks. Fisher insists that Edwards can rush the passer just ne, but that his value to Florida States defense is measured in more than just pressure and sacks. Hes so big that opposing tight ends are almost useless when trying to block him. And hes fast enough, for a man who weighs 300 pounds, that he can often simply rush past an opposing tackle. And, Fisher says, Edwards is athletic enough to drop back into coverage on occasion. That guy there is as big and athletic as any of the ends weve had, Fisher said. And that other group, hes as good as any one of those guys. It was all on full display at the Rose Bowl, when Edwards could often be found overwhelming his blocker or at the bottom of the tackle pile. Edwards and the Seminoles limited the Tigers to 232 rushing yards a high number, but well below Auburns 329 yards-per-game average. Late in the fourth quarter, Edwards perfectly sniffed out an Auburn read-option play. He then stayed stride for stride and juke for juke with 6-1, 210-pound quarterback Nick Marshall before bringing him down for a deep loss. What a great play by a 280-pound defensive lineman, ESPN analyst Kirk Herbstreit said at the time. Out in space against Nick Marshall, a former point guard and a dynamic athlete, and the big fella holds his own. Added FSU running back Karlos Williams: Hes a different beast. Sacks may not equal greatness, but that doesnt mean Edwards doesnt want them. He says he missed out on six to seven sacks last year just by not knowing enough of the playbook, being out of position or being tired. I wasnt consistent, he said, and those are things I can control. Edwards doesnt plan to make those mistakes this year. I want double digits, he said.

As a result, Jenkins said when a white GCSO of cer shot a black suspect a number of years ago, there was no uproar in the community. Jenkins said based on following the story of the recent shootingin Ferguson, Mo., it appears that there has been over-policing and very aggressive policing. Ive seen that kind of policing before, Jenkins said. Ive seen that type of policing before, and it never comes out good. In order for the Ferguson, Mo., community to heal from this incident, Jenkins said he believes law enforcement there should start with community policing.

The Panthers J.V. squad took to the eld during the rst quarter and set the tone with an aggressive style of defense that suffocated the Pirates offense on their rst offensive drive. The Panthers offense featured an elusive running game that led to a nice inside run by sophomore running back Pedro Bostick, with 8:07 left in the quarter, which gave the visitors a 7-0 lead. The ferocious play of West Gadsdens young defensive line resulted in a forced fumble that was recovered by sophomore defensive lineman JaMichael Williams with 3:07 remaining in the period. West Gadsdens offense transformed the Pirates turnover into another score, which extended their lead o 14-0. The Panther defense was awarded once again near the end of the quarter as the Pirates quarterback was unable to handle a bad snap that resulted in a safety. West Gadsdens underclassmen began to celebrate their 16-0 shutout, as their quarter of play came to an end. After the JV contest ended it was the Varsity players turn to step onto the eld and engage in their rst action of the new season. The Panthers received the ball rst and ran into a swarming Pirate defense, which led to a three and out. West Gadsdens defense stepped up and returned the favor as they stopped the Pirates on their rst offensive possession. The Panthers offensive fortunes changed on the next offensive drive as a de ected pass by junior quarterback Qwantrezz Knight landed into the hands of receiver Willie Sweet, who in turn sprinted into the end zone and gave his team a 7-0 lead with 8:08 left in the period. Unlike their J.V. counterparts, the Panther Varsity team featured an aerial attack that struck goal again with 1:17 remaining in the contest as Knight scrambled on a broken play and found junior wide receiver Tranquil Card near the right sideline for a 21-yard catch and score, and after Isreal Grandes second successful extra point attempt of the quarter, the Panther extended their advantage 14-0. An interception by Antonio Murphy with just over a minute left to play led to one last score as Knight found Octavious Evans on a fade route along the left sideline of the end zone that gave the Panthers a comfortable 21-0 victory. As the nal quarter of play ended, the West Gadsden players on both teams began to congratulate and celebrate back to back shutout wins against the Pirates. West Gadsdens Head Coach Joe Striplin shared his feelings on the Varsity teams performance after the Jamboree: It was only a quarter but it was good to get back under the lights again. Its pretty impressive whenever you score 21 points in one quarter. Striplin also expressed his outlook on the teams rst regular season home game against the Rattlers of FAMU High next Friday, saying, FAMU is going to be a well coached team, and we will have to play our best to beat them.

Elizabeth Turner DONT FORGET TO ENTER FOR YOUR CHANCE TO WIN! 000J4JH run on it? I dont think it was increasing my distance that did it, but I did a longer run on a at path that I normally do with hills, so I thought maybe that was the problem but three weeks seems like too long. H.O. ANSWER: Pain in the shin bone (tibia) is common in runners, but the hard part is distinguishing between shin splints, properly called medial tibial stress syndrome, and a stress fracture of the tibia. A stress fracture usually has a discrete area of tenderness, but MTSS has more diffuse tenderness. An X-ray may be needed to be sure it isnt a stress fracture, since the treatment is very different. A runner with a stress fracture needs to avoid impact activities like running, whereas MTSS usually gets better with just lower running mileage. In your case, the degree of pain is higher than I would expect after three weeks. Id recommend an X-ray.Contacting Dr. RoachDr. Roach regrets that he is unable to answer individual letters, but will incorporate them in the column whenever possible.

(c) 2014 North America Synd., Inc. All Rights ReservedHEALTHContinued from Page 11A Since the age of ve years old, I was bullied and beaten almost on a daily basis. That abuse came from the hands of strict parents dealing with their own issues, later from classmates and in personal relationships. However, today things are very different. For the past twenty-two years I devoted myself to teaching others how to defend themselves and ways they can improve their self esteem. Having taught hundreds of children, adults, seniors and those with special needs in Gadsden County for almost eight years, bullying is still an issue today. It exists in the homes, schools, neighborhoods and other places. We all have a responsibility to stop and not repeat damaging behavior from one generation to the next. The saddest thing for me was thinking I deserved to be talked to or treat badly. The rst thirty years of my life, I thought it was normal for people to get beat up or abused by their parents, by their husbands and even by a boss. Where could I go, how would I live to support myself and my children if I removed myself from the situation? My Anne Radke Understanding bullying is making a standSee STAND/Page A23

Use this list of some of the popular vitamins and supplements that have recently made headlines to help you decide whether they fit into your health and wellness regimen.Vitamins and supplements to promote healthFAMILY FEATURES With so many different choices in the vitamin aisle, many women find it difficult to choose the right ones to fit their personal needs. As a woman, keeping your body healthy is an important task. Whether you are in your child-bearing years, taking folic acid for a healthy baby, or in your post-menopausal years, taking extra calciumfor healthybones,therearevariousvitamins for women to consider at every stage of life. A daily regimenIts no secret that the use of vitamins has become a common act for most people. In fact, a recent Gallup poll found that 54 percent of women take a vitamin on a daily basis. If your intention is to prevent disease, such as cancer or osteoporosis, or you just want to fill in nutrition gaps not covered in your daily diet, the reasons for taking vitamins and their many different forms are endless.Giving backWhile having the means to obtain such essential nutri ents is simple for most Americans, there are many people who arent as fortunate. In an effort to improve the everyday health of people every where, Walgreens is joining up with Vitamin Angels, a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping at-risk populations gain access to life saving micronutrients. Customers can make a difference and help chil dren and mothers at risk by purchasing select health and wellness supple ments at Walgreens. With each purchase, the company will offer 1 percent of its vitamins sales to help provide 100 million at-risk children and mothers in the US and abroad with essential vitamins and minerals. Walgreens mission is to help people get, stay and live well, and we are proud to support Vitamin Angels cause, said Robert Tompkins, group vice president and general merchandise manager. Through this program, our customers can make a differenceinsomanylivesbysimplycontinuingto fulfilltheirhealthandwellnessneedsatWalgreens.

Preventive Solutions for WomenInvest in your future by taking advantage of health testing services at your local Walgreens pharmacy or Healthcare Clinic at select Walgreens. Some services offered include the following tests:Cholesterol Blood pressure Blood glucose Body composition Talk to your physician about your test results. MultivitaminsWhile most of the nutrients contained within multivitamins can be found in food, taking one daily can fill in any missing gaps. A daily multivitamin can satisfy all of your daily nutri tion needs. When shop ping for the right product, note that not all multivitamins are created equal. Some varieties offer a different amount of nutrients targeted to a specific age group or function, such as Centrum Silver Women 50+ Multivitamin tablets, which provide additional support for breast and bone health.Omega-3 supplementsPerhapsoneofthemosttalkedabout nutri tion products on the market, omega-3 fish oil supple ments have been praised by various health profes sionals for their heart health benefits. Suppor tive but not conclusive research shows that con sump tion of EPA and DHA omega-3 fatty acids may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease. One product, Natures Bounty Odorless Fish Oil 1000 mg Dietary Supplement Softgels, provides a special coating to minimize the unfavorable aftertaste often associ ated with such pills.Vitamin DWhile many people obtain vitamin D through exposure to natural sunlight, it can also be found in small increments in fatty fishes and in fortified dairy and cereal products. Supplements of both vitamin D3 (at 700800 IU/day) have been shown to reduce the risk of bone loss and fractures in elderly people aged 6285 years. For those looking for a convenient way to get the vitamin D needed for optimal health, try the Finest Nutrition Vitamin 5000 IU Dietary Supplement.CalciumTo keep bones healthy and strong through out life, your body requires calcium. This bone-strengthening nutrient reduces the risk of developing osteoporosis. To increase your calcium intake, try the Nature Made Calcium 600 mg with Vitamin D Dietary Supplement Liquid Softgels, which provide additional vitamin D to pro mote calcium absorption.Folic acidA nutrient commonly taken by women who are pregnant or who wish to become pregnant, folic acid is known to reduce the risk of neural tube defects such as spina bifida in babies. For those looking to improve their health and wellbeing, a general under standing of the many uses for vitamins and supple ments may just be their own personal key to longevity.

The public is invited.CHURCH Continued from Page 7A Go ahead and laughIn 1998, I had a bad week. It began when my neighbor, Sandy, had asked me to feed her dogs, let them outside in the fenced-in yard during the day and put them in their kennels for the night while she was out of town. Any idiot can do that, I thought. Except one day I forgot the part about letting them outside and only remembered later when I discovered one of the dogs had eaten Sandys couch that was on the porch. He didnt eat all of it he left the springs. Then I noticed one of the dogs had eaten the entire can of sh food that was on the table. I was so frazzled that when I left Sandys house, I closed the locked front door with the door key lying safely on the kitchen counter and Sandy not due home for another week. With mental images of dogs exploding bladders, I took to the streets, roaming the neighborhood crying, Marie! Marie! as I tried to nd the only other person I knew had a key to Sandys house. (I didnt know where Marie lived.) Also that week I put a carton of ice cream in the pantry and amassed a hefty herd of ants. While writing a check at the bank, I bit the end of my pen and got a mouthful of ink blue teeth, blue lips, blue gums, blue tongue, blue ngers, blue smears on my white shorts. Sadly, that wasnt the rst time that had ever happened to me. The rst time was during an economics nal in high school. I now use only black ink pens. That same week I accidentally colored my youngest daughters hair Day-Glo orange. She was into a grunge-punk phase then and actually loved it, mostly because she could tell horri ed teachers, My mom did this to me! That week my car broke down. Two magazines I regularly wrote for folded and one of my books went out of print (which means the publisher doesnt think a book is good enough to print more copies). At the end of that week, as I sat down to gure out my income taxes, for 10 glorious minutes I thought we would actually get a refund for the rst time in seven years. However, as my husband checked my math he found Id made a $10,000 error that pushed us into another tax bracket. Suddenly, our $26 refund morphed before our eyes into a $1,000 debt to the IRS. Other bad stuff happened that week too, but the $1,000 to the IRS was the nal blow. I had had enough. I had reached my breaking point and did the only thing left that I could do I laughed. I fell to the oor and laughed and laughed and laughed. For a moment I thought I might have lost my sanity, but as I caught my breath, I realized I had actually found it. Ive used this quote from theologian Oswald Chambers many times: The saint is hilarious when crushed by dif culties, because the thing is so ludicrously impossible to anyone but God. Sometimes theres nothing left to do but laugh. Not that laughing changes circumstances. We still owed the IRS $1,000. But I think that kind of laughter is a way of surrendering, of saying to God, Youre right, God. Im not you. I dont control the universe. This is beyond me, and I cant x my life. Another theologian, Reinhold Niebuhr, said, Humor is a prelude to faith and laughter is the beginning of prayer. When my life falls apart around me, when my teeth are blue and my kids hair is orange, when my neighbors dog eats her couch because of me, when life hurls disappointments and impossibilities fast and furiously, when my brain hurts and my heart is fearful and overwhelmed, I line my human frailties up against Gods awesome majesty and power and might and his kindness and hear his Father-heart chuckling because he is God and able to do so much more than I can ever ask or hope for or even imagine, thats when I laugh. I laugh because I need and have a Savior. My laughter is my prelude to faith and the beginning of prayer. Its my worship. Lots of people laugh, and lots laugh until they cry. But I believe those who know the loving hand of God are the only ones who can cry until they laugh.

Call Today!1-877-676-1403Place an ad in The Gadsden County Times for just $12 heart was pierced by the ery darts of rude, mean and bullying behavior so much so that it nearly killed my body, mind and spirit. There is hope and ways that every person can be educated to deter negative behavior and stop the downward spiral of low self esteem. Understanding that rude behavior, not to be confused with mean actions, is more like making comments about the way someone looks, exhibiting poor manners, breaking in line or any behavior that is spontaneous, unplanned and unfair. While mean behavior is de ned as having the intent to hurt someone feelings, the attacker making themselves look good by putting others down or saying things like you are fat, stupid, dumb or even worse, I hate you. Bullying is aggressive, escalated, mean and rude behavior, repeated over time and one that involves an imbalance of power. Bullying can be physical, verbal, relational, or even used in technology. Recently I taught some blind students who have been bullied and at the end they felt empowered just like any of the sighted students I have trained. Children are told many times to walk away or just ignore those attacking them but there are other ways that help. Understanding bullies is another way to address the problem. By seeing someone who is mean or bullies is an unhappy, frustrated person it removes the power over syndrome. Standing up is even better. If the victim focuses on the positives about themselves and thinks in terms of will this really matter in a year from now or more, it gives them power rather than another person having that control. The anti-bullying seminars, are about empowerment which involves feeling good about themselves, standing up and proper reporting These methods open up their options of seeing things differently, discovering humor in the situation, enlisting the support of a friend or trusted person, or get involved in a self defense class or karate class. All these actions will help. However, the primary key is helping each person discover the good qualities about themselves, recognize their strengths and self worth. In my experience by taking away the attackers power one becomes empowered. Each one of us have daily pressures, problems and disadvantages but we all deserve to be loved and feel safe. By being aware, really listening to what is being said and supporting ourselves and others in a positive way, we all can take part of the intervention and prevention of bullying. Children will one day be adults and have to make the decision of either repeating destructive behavior from what they have experienced or make a change for the better. This isnt just a parent or teachers job, it is all of our responsibility to not only support those who have been bullied but stand up to the bullies and report incidents.

"With Labor Day right around the corner, most Americans will be seeing the lowest prices of the summer," said GasBuddy. com Senior Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan. "And the good news doesn't end there, the national average is at its lowest levels for this time of year since 2010, when prices averaged $2.65/gallon nationally during Labor Day weekend. While most Americans won't have access to sub-$3 prices, a few hundred gas stations, mainly in the southern U.S., are offering gasoline under $3/gallon today. And for those motorists in areas where gas prices tend to be high: just 1.5 percent of gas stations in the U.S. are selling for more than $4/gallon, so even California is in on the party at the pump," DeHaan said. GasBuddy operates TallahasseeGasPrices.com and more than 250 similar websites that track gasoline prices at over 140,000 gasoline stations in the United States and Canada. In addition, GasBuddy offers a free smartphone app, which has been downloaded over 25 million times to help motorists nd the lowest gasoline prices in their area.GASContinued from Page 14A Back-to-school event gets learning off to a healthy start A lunch buffet with plenty of fruits and vegetables was a popular stop during the fth annual ack to School Health Fair on Aug. 15 at the Jessie Furlow Medical Center in Quincy.

I am excited to launch this initiative exploring the records of local government and private corporations, said Adora Obi Nweze in a press release issued Monday afternoon. Economic Sustainability is one of our national Game Changers and our campaign will highlight those who support diversity and those who dont. She also serves as a member of the National Board of the NAACP. The Diversity Matters Initiative will examine the records of targeted cities, counties, school districts and private corporations statewide. The NAACP Florida State Conference will examine their records on employment, advertising and spending with minority, women and veteran-owned businesses. The NAACP Florida State Conference will release a consumer guide and report card at the conclusion of this process. Gadsden County Commissioner and NAACP memer Brenda Holt said she was not aware of the initiative until she read the press release, but she said it made sense for the NAACP to look at diversity. You need to check yourself every so often, she said. She said examining mobility within the minority sector could help determine both opportunities for advancement and for economic security. You could advance in your position, but not in salary, she said, So I think those are the things in the state thats what theyre looking for. Diversity and inclusion should be the norm whether you are in Pensacola, Tampa or Miami, said Torey Alston, who will lead this statewide effort on diversity and also serves as State Chair of Economic Development. We look forward to working with these organizations, conducting a thorough review and highlighting their records to the general public. Policies should match their practice!

Gadsden County Chapter honored nine (9) distinguished leaders at its 17th Annual Persons of the Year Luncheon on Saturday, Aug. 16, with 130 people in attendance at East Gadsden High School, Havana. Dianne WilliamsCox, Keith A. Dowdell, DeShaundra Jackson, Dorothy InmanJohnson, Audrey D. Lewis, Artrice Thomas-McCray, Jack L. McLean Jr., Willie Dawkins-Miller and Rev. Shirlean Thomas were celebrated for their work in churches, educational institutions, dedication to their families and community, entrepreneurship, healthcare services, social and civic projects, and many other related community services. The Rev. Terrence D. Milton delivered a riveting keynote address that discussed the difference between those appointed to serve and those anointed to serve. [To paraphrase.. Anointed Servants serve without being paid and continue to serve even when they dont receive recognition. Anointed Servants are appointed by God not man. Their hands are Gods hands. Anointed Servants hands serve others; they transform others lives and give unsel shly to others improving and making a positive difference wherever they are divinely appointed to serve. Needless to say, Rev. Milton shared a powerful message which was extremely relevant. The Sisters of NHBW, Inc.GCC highlighted the honorees achievements, gave them accolades for exemplary service to the Gadsden community and celebrated their lifelong missions and goals in the presence of family, friends, co-workers and associates they also received a plaque and a token of appreciation that commemorated this auspicious occasion. They received a special treat entertained with selections from two soloists: Ms. Yameche Smith of Quincy a special friend of NHBW and Rev. Miltons sister; and Miss Jade Livingston, a student of the Legacy School of Performing Arts LLC, Quincy (special thanks to Mrs. Rasheen Jamison-Richardson, Jades coach). In her closing remarks, Linda Jefferson, the Chapters President encouraged the honorees to continue to be the voices for the voiceless in Gadsden county whenever and wherever necessary.Club honors community leadersPerson of the Year honorees pose for a photo Aug. 16 during an event hosted by National Hookup of Black Women Inc.
