The indictment was announced Sept. 18 by Pamela C. Marsh, United States Attorney for the Northern District of Florida. The ve-count indictment alleges that on July 25, 2013, Corder deprived an arrestee of his constitutional right to due process of law by stealing approximately $1,785 belonging to the arrestee. The indictment also alleges that Corder made false and misleading statements concerning the theft to agents of the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Florida Department of Law Enforcement. If convicted, Corder faces a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison for obstruction of justice, ve years in prison for making false statements in a federal investigation, and one year in prison for deprivation of civil rights. Trial is scheduled for Nov. 10 before United States District Faith and concern for the welfare of the community and beyond brought a crowd to First Baptist Church of Chattahoochee this past Thursday. Maj. Shawn Wood of the Gadsden County Sheriffs Of ce organized the Chattahoochee Night of Prayer. A number of local clergy some black, some white, and some Hispanic offered prayers during the service. Pastor Barry Cottle of First Baptist Church welcomed the visitors lling his church. He said the goal should be for the gospel to override the walls of the church and spill into the community. Thats where we need to be going with the message of Jesus Christ, he said. The program included prayers for revival, law enforcement and rst responders, for children and schools, for active military and veterans, for national, state and local leaders, for forgiveness and for revival. Wood asked for prayer for local law enforcement. In our jobs we need a lot of stuff, he said. We need people to stand with us and lift us up. The Gadsden County Sheriffs Of ce Choir also performed rousing gospel songs that brought a number of folks in the audience to their feet. Clergy members on the program included: Pastor Conrad Salter, Pastor Pauline Travis Dawkins, Pastor Roberto Flores, Pastor Rolando Matos, Pastor Long, Bishop Raines, Pastor Dedric Streeter, Pastor Mike Allen, Pastor Jay En nger, Pastor Mark Moore and Bishop Titus Deas Jr. Before Bishop Raines prayed for Florida State Hospital and ACI, he said, To me this is something great to come together and unify ourselves in prayer.KENDRICK BROWNFor the Times TALLAHASSEE, The Florida Department of Economic Opportunity, Bureau of Labor Market Statistics recently released unemployment rates for August 2014. These numbers reect a small overall decrease in unemployment since July; in addition, employment in Information, Leisure and Hospitality, and Trade, Transportation and Utilities grew faster in the region than statewide. The unemployment rates in the three counties CareerSource Capital Region serves were 7.1 percent in Gadsden, 6.1 percent in Leon and 5.3 percent in Wakulla. Gadsden Countys unemployment rate is .1 percentage point lower than the July 2014 rate. Leon Countys unemployment rate is .2 percentage points lower than the July 2014 rate. Wakulla Countys unemployment rate is .1 percentage points higher than the July 2014 rate. CareerSource Capital Region is fortunate to have many workforce development professionals who regularly make a difference in peoples lives, says Jim McShane, CEO of CareerSource Capital Region. And, we have been fortunate to have regional staff such as Ron Fedd, who works in the resource room at our South Monroe Street of ce in Tallahassee, to be recognized at the state level for the professional services he provides to job seekers.

Early in the meeting, County Clerk Nicholas Thomas warned against building a new sheriffs administration building because he suspects not enough money has been set aside for the project and he said next years budget fails to address the countys jail capacity issue. In the memo sent to commissioners the day before the meeting, Thomas said it would be devastating for the County to not recognize that jail capacity needs should take priority over much of the additional spending in the 2015 budget, and suggested the board hire a consultant to determine if there are legitimate capacity needs at the jail. The commissioners took no action on this issue Tuesday night.

When 85-year-old screen legend Tony Curtis died 4 years ago, on September 29, he left behind an impressive body of work that included The De ant Ones, The Sweet Smell of Success, and Billy Wilders 1959 classic comedy, Some Like it Hot. Curtiss lm success was hardly surprising. With picture-perfect good looks, an intriguing raspy New York accent, and plenty of raw talent, the boy from the Bronx quickly climbed through the studio ranks into the hearts of devoted fans. Jill Vandenberg, however, wasnt one of them. As a teenager, she was more interested in horses than movie stars. But when Curtis approached her at a Los Angeles restaurant in 1994, the couple exchanged phone numbers, and began dating. Four years later, they were married. He was the funniest guy ever, just hilarious and so sweet.

Be very careful when picking opihi; many people lose their lives picking this snail, Fred cautioned me several years ago. Watching Judy at work for the past few days removing all the snails devouring our owers here in Central Florida is what stirred the memory of the warning about picking opihi in Hawaii from my former father-in-law, Fred Kashima. The opihi is a small sea snail or gastropod. It looks like a miniature volcano and clings tenaciously to rocks on wild, remote shorelines of the Hawaiian islands, especially, the Big Island or Hawaii. Opihi pickers can make big bucks because it is so dangerous to pick this little snail. I read that during a period of 18 months around 2003, six people had died while attempting to pick opihi. The gastropod is found clinging to razor-sharp lava rocks in areas called splash zones in remote areas. Fifty years ago, when I went on my one and only opihi safari, this shell sh was considered a delicacy and still is today. They are usually eaten raw, right out of the shell. A gallon of cleaned and shelled opihi can cost as much as $200 to $400 in Australia, New Zealand and Hawaii. My rst wife, Millie, and I were living on Oahu during the early s. Her father, Fred, loved eating sh, especially almost any kind taken from the local waters of Hawaii. He went into great detail about picking opihi and of all the inherent dangers. It is the side of the rock or lava that faces the sea where the opihi cling with a death grip. When busy picking the delicacy with your back to the ocean, it is easy to lose track of time and not be aware of the incoming tide. Many experienced pickers have died because of drowning and not being able to swim or work their way back to shore. Fred told me eating opihi was one of the highlights of his life, especially since it was rare that he could get his hands on the snails. He certainly couldnt afford to purchase any. Millie and I took a trip to the Big Island for a few days. Our son, Kent, was about 3 at the time and went along with us on the vacation. I told Millie I would like to surprise her father with a gift of opihi when we returned to Oahu. We found a remote section of shoreline on Hawaiis northeast coast. Experienced pickers used an opihi knife. I didnt know such a tool existed and used a butter knife that Fred had said would do. It was a typical, beautiful Hawaiian morning when I started to pick opihi, armed with my plastic bag and butter knife. I cant remember how I carried the bag as it took two hands to pry the snail off the sharp lava rocks. It took me a few minutes to get the knack. I was really getting into it, and every once in a while I would turn around to face the sea behind me to ensure the tide was not coming in too quickly. What a wonderful day I was having. As I picked I could keep my eye on my wife and son who also seemed to be enjoying the beautiful day and the sun and offshore breezes. I lost all sense of time and didnt return to the shore when Millie tried to wave me in at one point. I took no breaks at all. I knew I was getting sunburned even though I had made sure to have plenty of lotion applied to my back and shoulders. My plastic bag was just about full, and I felt it was time to return to the beach. I had a very dif cult time, and the tide must have been about high. On my way out to the spot, hours earlier, I had had no trouble moving over the rocks and out from shore about 30 yards. Where there had been bare rock, 4A GADSDEN COUNTY TIMES THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 25, 2014 WWW.GADCOTIMES.COMThe question wasnt really as comprehensive as it could have been, but the Washington Post-ABC news poll was nevertheless startling: A majority of those responding, 52 percent of them, described Barack Obamas presidency as a failure. Even one in four Democrats agreed to that word: failure. We can debate whether thats all that signi cant, or whether polls re ect more than just an instant of collective opinion, whether the methodology was all that it should have been. We also should never forget how news coverage usually is super cial at best, or worse, ideologically incendiary, even ignorant. There also is the contention that Republicans have conducted themselves shamelessly, often putting their partisan desire to regain power over the good of the country. Certainly we can factor in the argument that the Obama administration has spent a lot of its energy simply cleaning up the huge messes left behind by George W. Bushs people. But whatever the reasons, the widespread perception is that the majority believes this president is a failure. Maybe the larger question is whether, in our poisonous atmosphere of U.S. politics, any president can be a success. At the end of his term in 2009, a CNN poll showed that 68 percent of respondents described the Bush presidency as a failure. Obamas message was Change you can believe in, but maybe it really was Im not George W. Bush. And now, after President Obama promised to extricate our country from the Iraq tragedy that the Bush administration lurched into, he is recommitting us to to a new ght in and around Iraq with promises that there will be no American boots on the ground really meaning just a few boots. Even with the horrors committed by the vicious ISIL militants in Iraq and Syria, this president is getting both resistance from his own party and, of course, lots of sniping from the Republicans. Is it possible that President Obama nally has been worn down by the years of relentless political opposition? Could that be the explanation for someone who had been noted for being smooth taking such avoidable stumbles? Why else would he have said something so clumsy as we dont have a strategy yet, when he really meant that his people were carefully developing one? All he did was pin a kick me sign on his back, with his political enemies more than happy to oblige. The pressure is only going to get worse. Meanwhile, wannabes on both sides are lining up to succeed him. Theyre already shouting their grandiose promises, but maybe theyd strike a chord if instead they conducted a campaign of reduced expectations. If they faced the American people and merely pledged to take baby steps, joining the opposition after strugOver time federal agencies have ipped the Freedom of Information Act (ACT) on its head. Congress clearly intended the FOIA to be a tool for the public to pry information out of federal agencies. In recent years, however, agencies have blatantly abused opaque language in the law to keep records that might be embarrassing out of the publics hands forever. One of the clearest examples of this problem has been playing itself out in court rooms over the last few years as the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) has successfully argued against the release of a 30 year old draft volume of the of cial history of the 1961 Bay of Pigs Disaster. There are few records in the federal government that are seen to merit such secrecy. This draft CIA history is afforded stronger protections than the Presidents records, or even classi ed national security information. Members of the public are able to access similar records generated by the White House as early as 12 years after the President leaves of ce. Even most classi ed national security information is automatically declassi ed after 25 years. Yet, the CIA continues to insist that releasing a draft volume of a history of events that occurred more than 50 years ago, and are already generally understood by the public, must be kept secret. How is this possible? The record can continue to be withheld because it ts under the rubric of the FOIAs exemption for interand intra-agency records. While this exemption was originally intended in part in allow agency ofcials to give candid advice before an agency has made an of cial decision, agencies have stretched its use to cover practically anything that is not a nal version of a document. As long as a record meets the technical de nition of an interor intra-agency record, there is nothing the public or courts can do to make an agency release it. Thankfully, Congress has recognized this black hole in the publics right to know, and has stepped in with a bill that promises to close the loophole and make other changes that would improve the FOIA process. Longtime FOIA champions Senator Patrick Leahy (D-VT) and Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) have reached across the aisle to develop and introduce S. 2520, the FOIA Improvement Act. The bill takes the common sense step of requiring agencies to weigh the public interest in the release of an interor intraagency record when considering whether to withhold it, and also puts a time limit of 25 years on the use of the exemption. Far from radically changing how requests are currently processed, this narrowly tailored change to the law would help make sure historical records are available on a timely basis and stem the worst abuses by allowing a court to weigh-in where necessary to make sure records that would show waste, fraud, abuse, or illegality are released. With trust in government at an all-time low, the public clearly has an appetite for laws that would make it easier to understand what the government is doing and why, and to hold government of cials accountable for their actions. The public would also bene t from seeing that Congress can still work in a bipartisan fashion to address issues. Time is running out to make S. 2520 the law during this session of Congress, though. While the House unanimously passed a bill that included many reforms that are similar to S. 2520 earlier this year, the House bill does not address the problem with interand intra-agency records. Once Congress comes back in September, members will have to work across the aisle and across the Capitol Dome to make sure they reach a compromise that can be put on the Presidents desk before the session ends on Jan. 3, 2015. This is work Congress can, and must, do to help restore freedom to information in the FOIA. Bennett is Assistant Director of OpenTheGovernment.org. The Gadsden County Times15 S.

The ocean was now at chest level, and I was quite nervous about returning to the beach safely. Although Millie had had her eyes opened toward the sea at my back, evidently she also did not realize the tide had been coming in steadily. After close to an hour I had safely regained the shore with my bag of opihi intact. Millie was as shocked as I was to realize how quickly I had become in a dangerous situation. It would be the last time I picked opihi. Our plane wasnt due to leave for Oahu for another day, and we had no refrigerator or ice available at our motel. We decided to deposit that precious bag of opihi in a garbage can that night. Fred would have died. We did share with him our adventure at a much later time. Be careful when picking opihi, my friends. It could cost you your life. God bless you. gling together out of our national quicksand, maybe a skeptical country would respond. The bigger job would be to really do it. Once in of ce, the new president will be faced with not only the never-ending international crises, but also political hostilities at home that seem to be unresolvable. They must be resolved. Perhaps instead of focusing on still another new beginning, the chief executive will need to focus on stopping the country from hurtling toward its ending. (c) 2014 Bob Franken Distributed by King Features Synd. CURTISContinued from Page 3A I felt Id known him forever, Jill (Curtis) recalled. Despite being some forty years his junior and his fth wife (not sixth as often reported), the couple became inseparable. But horses remained Jills passion and, with Tonys help, rescued hundreds of unwanted animals destined for slaughter. In the summer of 2006, I met the couple at their rescue ranch in Sandy Valley, Nev., 45-minutes south of Las Vegas. Good morning, Im Tony, he said, offering a rm handshake and genuinely warm hug youd expect from an old friend. Sporting shorts and a white Stetson, we talked about his career and the ranch. Then 81, Tony was no longer the lean, athletic actor of his earlier lms, but there was still no mistaking the innate charm and charisma of the man who was also father to Jamie Lee Curtis and ex-hubby of the late Janet Leigh. He recalled Jill urging him to become a horse rescuer. We were driving in the car one evening and Jillie told me she wanted to save some of those horses. I told her lets go do it, he said. With a team of volunteers, they dug wells, erected fences and stables, and transformed a 40acre desolate desert spot into an oasis for mistreated horses which the couple called Shiloh, meaning a place of peace (see www.shiloh horserescue.com). Tony was a wellknown artist, and a percentage of his income from his artwork went to saving horses, Jill told me after her husbands death. We were planning to build a house at Shiloh when Tony got sick for the last time. After his passing, Jill also found peace at Shiloh. We were together for 16 years and married for twelve, she said. Shiloh gave me something meaningful to work on during my grieving. Despite initial concerns about their daughters involvement with an older man, Jill says her parents accepted their famous, elderly, son-in-law. My family loved Tony, and helped me look after him in the last years of his life, she said. I cant imagine life without her, Tony said back in 2006. She keeps me young. But he also acknowledged an earlier, dif cult life and poor choices: an impoverished childhood living in his parents tailor shop, a physically abusive mother and distant father, several high pro le marriages, alienation from his children, the deaths of his younger brother and his youngest son, and a past cocaine addiction. It wasnt always easy, but Ive had a great career, Tony said. I started with nothing and got to the top of my profession. I want my success to be an example for young people who aspire to be actors. It was his hope that one of those inspired actors might go on to earn an Oscar, something which Curtis never achieved (just one nomination for The De ant Ones). It has bothered me at times that I never won, he admitted with a stoic laugh. Curtis never forgot the Hollywood snub. The day before he passed away, the doctor visited him at his Nevada home and asked if he had any pain anywhere. Tony looked at him and said only in LA, recalled Jill. He kept his sense of humor, right up to the end. Nick Thomas teaches at Auburn University at Montgomery, Ala., with features, columns, and interviews in over 450 magazines and newspapers.

Cub Scout Pack 201 met this past week at First Presbyterian Church in Quincy for the monthly Pack Meeting. The topic was their annual popcorn kick-off, where the boys were informed about their upcoming Scout fundraiser. Popcorn co-chairs Angela and Justin Bard choose a Mexican Fiesta as the theme for the night. Cub Master Jenni Briggs explained the popcorn products and Pack sales goal. All scouts were given sombreros, and scout leaders were surprised with hands made ponchos coutesy of the Bards. All in attendance were sporting fun fake mustaches as well. The night was complete with pinata fun, what to do (not do) while selling popcorn, popcorn races with a straw and more. Pack 201 will be selling popcorn until Nov 3. All sales help fund Pack events and purchases such as badges and awards. Photo submitted The voter registration deadline for the upcoming general election is Oct. 6, and this year, the ballot includes only two races speci c to Gadsden County residents. Both of those races are run-offs for school board member district seats, one in District 2 between newcomers Rodney Moore and Steve Scott, and the other in District 4 where Elijah Key challenges incumbent Charlie D. Frost. Run-offs are required when three or more candidates pursue an of ce in the primary election, and none of those candidates receive public support to the tune of 50 percent plus one additional vote. The two candidates with the most votes in the primary election then have a run-off in the general election that decides the winner, according to Gadsdens supervisor of elections, Shirley Knight. This years general election is headlined by the gubernatorial race between Floridas current governor, Rick Scott, and former governor, Charlie Crist. According to an early September poll from Rasmussen Reports, Crist currently holds a 2 percent lead over governor Scott, with the poll having a 3 percent margin of error. There are also three statewide ballot measures being decided in this years election, all of which require 60 percent of voter approval to be enacted. Amendment 1 is the Florida Water and Land Conservation Initiative, a measure that will, according to its bill, nance the acquisition and improvement of publicly used natural systems such as beaches, recreational trails, parks and historic sites. The initiative will come with no additional charge to Florida citizens if passed because funds for the initiative will come from the existing excise tax on documents. Amendment 2 is the Florida Right to Medical Marijuana Initiative, a measure that under state law will remove criminal and civil liability surrounding marijuana for qualifying medical users who receive prescriptions from licensed physicians and have those prescriptions lled at registered medical marijuana treatment centers. Under the initiative, quali ed users only include patients with debilitating medical conditions, such as cancer, glaucoma, HIV, AIDS, ALS, Crohns disease and Parkinsons disease. The initiative doesnt allow the operation of motor vehicles, boats, or planes while under the in uence, and doesnt affect laws on recreational use. Crist has said he plans to vote for the Florida Right to Medical Marijuana Initiative, while Gov. Scott has spoken out against it. Amendment 3 is the Florida Prospective Judicial Vacancies initiative, which will allow the governor to choose the next judge to ll a vacancy even before there is a vacancy to be lled. Under the amendment, a new judge will be in place as soon a judge has reached the mandatory retirement age of 70, failed to qualify for election or failed to win re-election. This amendment would allow outgoing governors to appoint the judges who serve under incoming governors, which could allow outgoing governors to retain inuence by appointing judges who share their political ideals. Early voting for this years election begins Oct. 20 and will end Nov. 1. Sombreros help good ideas pop for Cub Scouts Voter registration deadline ahead; for medical marijuana on ballot Tony Curtis, left, and Jack Lemmon are shown in a scene from Some Like It Hot. Photo submittedWith help from a team of volunteers, Tony Curtis and his wife dug wells, erected fences and stables and transformed a 40-acre desert into an oasis for mistreated horses.

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.

8A GADSDEN COUNTY TIMES THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 25, 2014 WWW.GADCOTIMES.COM By MARTY COHEN If ever there was a game where the score was a bit misleading, it came Saturday during Alabamas demolition of Florida in Tuscaloosa. Yes the nal score was 42-21 Crimson Tide, which doesnt sound totally awful. After all, barely two minutes into the third quarter the scoreboard read 21-21. What a game. A shootout at Bryant-Denny Stadium. An SEC humdinger. Um, not so much. Instead it was a complete and total domination on all sides by an Alabama bunch that kept Florida involved due to its own series of miscues, hardly the norm for a Nick Sabancoached team. Florida scored its three touchdowns on drives of 16 and 31 yards following Alabama turnovers plus a defensive score when Keanu Neal scooped up a fumble and returned it 49 yards. If it wasnt for the Tides charity . Heading into the contest, we were treated to the standard football clichs it was billed as a statement game for Florida, a measuring stick to gauge the programs progress. For the last two weeks, in SEC competition, the Gator defense was simply carved up by a couple of quarterbacks who had proven nothing prior to meeting UF. Kentuckys sophomore quarterback Patrick Towles, in the rst road start of his career, threw for 340 yards in regulation against a leaky Gator defense that gave up chunk yardage plays with regularity. Then Alabama quarterback Blake Sims, considered perhaps the biggest question mark on the team, unloved by a portion of the fan base, turned into the second coming of Joe Namath or Kenny Stabler or Bart Starr or AJ McCarron or any other Alabama quarterback of renown. When the dust settled, and Saban mercifully sat on the ball in the closing minutes, it became another red-faced performance as the Gators gave up a whopping 645 yards, the most ever in the history of Florida football. Perhaps more damaging than the defensive meltdown was the inept showing by the Gator offense, which frankly, looked no different than it has at its lowest points the last few seasons. Its just getting harder and harder to foster belief in Driskel. Certainly this dismal showing reflects on more than the quarterback, but Driskel is simply not getting the job done. He once again could not connect on a deep throw to Demarcus Robinson on a rst-down call when Robinson had a couple of steps on an Alabama defensive back in the first quarter. He led another receiver out of bounds on a throw up the sidelines. He nished an unsightly 9 of 28 for 93 yards with one touchdown and two interceptions. We havent even left September and already weve reached a crisis point. The wolves will be howling all night long and Muschamps tenure has reached an uneasy crossroads. Hes been unwavering in his belief the program is headed in the right direction following last seasons implosion. But after getting stomped in Tuscaloosa, the faith has been shaken in all corners. Its going to be a loooong two weeks until the Gators get a chance for redemption at Tennessee. Without over-dramatizing, the immediate fate of the program and perhaps Muschamps stewardship hangs in the balance.

FLORIDA FLORIDA gators gators By TIM LINAFELT Sean Maguire said Wednesday that hed dreamed of this since his days as a little league football player in New Jersey. Sean Maguire delivered a 73-yard touchdown to Rashad Greene that tied the game in the fourth quarter. Fourth quarter, tie game, 88 yards and 11 Clemson defenders between him and the end zone with No. 1 Florida States title defense potentially hanging in the balance. After years of waiting and dreaming, Maguires moment was here. And, almost as quickly, it was gone. Sailed into the arms of Clemson defender Jadar Johnson, who intercepted an overthrown third-down pass that, at the time, looked to seal the game for the Tigers. OK, so Maguires rst crack at heroism didnt go quite as planned. Bruce Wayne and Peter Parker probably took their lumps, too. But like all good hero stories, Maguire got another chance to get it right. Fine, Karlos Williams (along with FSUs defensive line) did all the heavy lifting in overtime. And Maguires performance had several downs to go with the ups. But lets not get caught up in details. The fact of the matter is that Sean Maguire, the unheralded high-school recruit, the other quarterback in FSUs recruiting class of 2012 and once the fourth man in a three-man quarterback race, stepped under center and guided the top-ranked Seminoles to an improbably perfect 23-17 win over No. 24 Clemson. Rashad Greene caught nine of Sean Maguires 21 completions. We dont know how Maguires career will play out. Hes only a redshirt sophomore, after all. But this game, this night, it was all his. Hes carved his place in the programs pantheon. Its the greatest feeling of my life so far, Maguire said. To get this win for our team, its awesome. It was clear after the game that Maguires coaches and teammates felt the same. No one even bothered to deny that this has been a dif cult week. But for a few moments, after the reworks cleared, the turmoil surrounding Jameis Winston faded. This was Maguires game. His night. I cant be prouder of Sean Maguire tonight, FSU coach Jimbo Fisher said. All he did for our team. The resolve he had. And, not that anyone needs reminding, this one didnt come easy. Common sense suggested that Florida States senior-laden offense would pick up Maguires slack, make life easier on him with a steady rushing attack and some quick passes. For a half, at least, it didnt work out that way. FSUs running game nished four quarters in the red, quite literally less effective than if the Seminoles had just not chosen to run at all. If the Seminoles were going to beat Clemson, Maguire would have to use his arm. The stat book shows a better-than-expected final line: 23 for 39, 305 yards and a touchdown, which looks even better in the light of his 6-for17 rst half. There were the two interceptions, too, neither of them at particularly opportune times, but, hey, perfection was never a reasonable expectation. He was awfully close to perfection on the game-tying pass, though. And just one play after taking a seemingly devastating sack. On second-and-24 at his own 26, Maguire dropped back and delivered a pretty throw down the sideline to an alarmingly-wide-open Rashad Greene. Greene who else, by the way waltzed into the end zone for an easy touchdown as the sold-out crowd came unglued. It was two polar opposites of what not to do as a quarterback, Maguire said. You cant take a sack there, especially that situation. But the next play, it was pretty awesome. So it was a happy ending for Maguire and a happy night for the Seminoles. And, even better, a happy ending for Maguires family, too. The Maguires made national news Thursday when Sean revealed that his parents, Kevin and Tina, had given away their tickets to the game. But they were there Saturday night after all, the result of a wild overnight trek. Seans younger sister, Mackenzie, had an of cial visit with the Mary Washington womens lacrosse team scheduled for this weekend. So while she and Kevin visited the campus in Fredericksburg, Va., on Friday, Tina caught a ight from New Jersey to Jacksonville. After the visit, Kevin and Mackenzie hopped in the car, drove a 12-hour shift to pick up Tina at the airport and, eventually, made their way to Tallahassee. A trio of tickets provided by teammates later two from lineman Chad Mavety and one from punter Cason Beatty and the Maguires were here to witness what was undoubtedly one of the special moments in their familys history. After the game, Maguire ran over to the sideline to scan the crowd, nally nding his folks for a quick wave before joining his teammates in the locker room. Crazy, Maguire said. Overwhelming. Thats probably the best two ways to describe it. This, in all likelihood, was a one-night-only performance. Fisher confirmed after the game that Winstons suspension is over and, as of Mondays practice, hell be Florida States starting quarterback again. Which, of course, is in the best interest of FSUs oneld aspirations. But if those oneld aspirations materialize and the Seminoles put together another special season, there will be no denying that Maguires ngerprints are on it. This game, this night, this win, theyre all his.

This took place in the Health Science Center where STEM Scholars interacted with university faculty and students from the Colleges of Medicine, Dentistry, Veterinary Science, Occupational Therapy, Physical Therapy, Pharmacy, and the Biology Department. The students then visited various Biomedical Research Laboratories housed in the center. The Chemistry Department shared information about career options in their speci c eld and provided students handson activities working with nanotechnology. The students also visited the Computer Science Department where they constructed a Virtual Patient and practiced with diagnosing that patients illness. The STEM Scholars experiences included extracting DNA from plants, running a PCR and completing gel electrophoresis in the Interdisciplinary Center for Biotechnology Research. Data was used to construct morphological and molecular phylogenies. STEM Scholars also completed a scienti c research activity at the Entomology and Nematology Department by collecting data on fruit ies (Drosophila) that were in a coldinduced coma. Students took advantage of this departments outside classroom as they waded through the Stormwater Ecological Enhancement Project Wetlands teaching laboratory and worked with university faculty and graduate students to explore this Florida ecosystem.

Campaign designed to raise awareness about how working, properly installed smoke alarms can lower a persons chances of dying in a re. Quincy Fire Department is supporting this critical effort to reduce injuries and the loss of life. The USFAs Install. Inspect. Protect. Campaign is aimed at encouraging Americans to practice re safety by installing and maintaining smoke alarms and residential re sprinklers, which can help save the lives of residents and re ghters, practicing re escape plans, and performing a home safety walk-through to remove re hazards from the home. The campaign is promoting re safety through a free Campaign Toolkit disc; educational materials; print, radio and television PSAs; childrens materials, community organization-sponsored events and a consumer-friendly campaign website. Quincy Fire Department is proud to be a partner with the USFA in this very relevant campaign. Far too many people have died in res as a result of not having working smoke alarms or sprinklers. One person killed in a home re is just too many. Together, we can educate our communities and help save lives. QFD has 200 dual sensor smoke detectors to be intalled in homes of citizens 50 years of age and older in Quincys primary response district. QFD also has smoke detectors purchased locally to install in homes of all other citizens regardless of age. If a re breaks out in your home while youre asleep, how will you know? Having a working smoke alarm is like having a re safety of cial on duty in your home, 24 hours a day. said Deputy U.S. Fire Administrator Glenn A.Gaines. Working smoke alarms will alert you to the re and we know conclusively, a residential sprinkler system can help put the re out. Gaines adds, Smoke alarms and sprinklers are able to provide residents the time it takes to get everyone out of the house, before re ghters have to come in. When both smoke alarms and re sprinklers are present in a home, the risk of dying in a re is reduced by 82 percent, when compared to a residence without either. According to the National Fire Protection Association, between 2003-2006, almost twothirds of home re deaths resulted from res in homes with no smoke alarms or no working smoke alarms. For more information on the Install. Inspect. Protect. Campaign and other re prevention information, please visit www.usfa.dhs. gov/smokealarms. To schedule a program or smoke detector installation locally, please contact Quincy Fire Department at 850875-7315 between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m.FIRE Continued from Page 1A Quincy Fire Department has 200 dual sensor smoke alarms to be installed in homes of citizens 50 and older in Quincys primary response district.

Marcus Reed. Years ago, my friend Becky in Texas excitedly announced that her son was only smoking pot. She asked, What kind of a mom gets excited because her kid is only smoking pot? The kind of mom whose kid had been doing cocaine and other hard drugs. She calls this son Doozy, as in one doozy of a human being, a challenge to know how to love. Not that she doesnt love him ercely, but that she struggles to know how to express that love in a way that helps, not hurts him. She wrote recently on her Facebook page: To love a child is to have your heart go walking around outside your body. To love a troubled adult child is to have your heart, your intestines and your spleen go walking outside your body and onto a rollercoaster, then a Tilt-A-Whirl and down Niagara Falls. You dont know whether to laugh, cry or throw up. She said, Its funny how I nd myself practicing the same Lamaze breathing I used when I gave birth to his 9-lb., 2-oz. self some 35 years agoYou know that transition stage (during labor) where you feel completely out of control? Im there again, breathing through labor pains. She said her mind has been kidnapped by kid worry and she wonders if it ever stops, if a mom ever stops worrying about her kids who are in trouble, wonders if moms ever stop praying frantic prayers. The answer is no, moms never stop being moms. I told her of a conversation I had one time with God. It was years ago during one of the many times I was trying with all my might to control just one small section of the universe where my daughter lives and was having difculty wrestling the controls away from God. Things were not going well, which means they werent going as I had wanted them to go. I knew exactly how her situation should be xed and had been acting as a consultant to Moms in waiting Nancy KennedyGRACE NOTES See GRACE/Page 16AWhats up?Family gathering in HavanaThe Poppell Family Reunion will be from 11 a.m.m to 2 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 4, at the Havana Golf and Country Club, Highway 27, Havana.

countys public library system an estimated $468,000 in state aid. The state library funding would be used for materials, salaries, and operating expenses at the countys three libraries, according to the agenda request reviewed by the commissioners, and is awarded to the county under certain conditions, such as maintaining free library service and having at least one library open 40 hours or more a week. Currently, all three Gadsden County libraries meet these conditions. Commissioners voted to extend agreements with the Quincy Fire Department and Midway Volunteer Fire Department that would ensure unincorporated areas of Gadsden County continue to receive re services. Quincys re department will continue to cover areas such as Gretna, St. John and Robertsville, while Midways Volunteer Fire Department will continue to cover areas within ve miles of its department. Commissioner Douglas Croley expressed concern that res in Quincys Dogtown section were not being covered because of confusion about which department bore the responsibility of covering the area. The commissioners passed the agreement with Quincys re department with the understanding that the list of covered areas will be reviewed and updated. 16A GADSDEN COUNTY TIMES THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 25, 2014 WWW.GADCOTIMES.COMGRACEContinued from Page 15A God about it, although he wasnt taking my advice, which, frankly, is par for the course. It was then that he gave me a mental picture, which sparked our conversation. I pictured him as a universe-renown surgeon performing delicate surgery on my child, the kind of surgery only he knew how to do. As he skillfully cut and sliced, clipped and clamped, I kept poking my ngers in what he was doing, getting in his way, telling him that hes mean because hes hurting my kid and to stop it and just move over so I could do the surgery. Have you ever performed surgery before? God asked. Um, no. But Ive seen it done on TV. Why dont you go sit in the waiting room? Have some coffee. Read a book. But I can do a much better job than you can, God. Seriously? You seriously think so? Yeah, I do. Actually, God and I have had this same conversation many times, and it always ends the same way. He doesnt hand over the scalpel and I end up in the waiting room, usually after being dragged there, kicking and yelling. A few weeks ago, I ran into a woman who also has a doozy of a son, and she lled me in on what hes been up to. Shes doing a lot of Lamaze breathing these days too, walking around with her heart, intestines and spleen on the outside, riding a rollercoaster, feeling like shes about to throw up. Motherhood aint for sissies, thats for sure. As I listened to the stories from these two moms, I thought about other moms I know who are going through similar times of feeling kidnapped by kid worry and how easy it is to think that Gods mean to let kids hurt. But hes not mean. The pain he lets his kids feel is the pain from the surgery, the surgery that saves their souls. Therefore, the pain is actually his kindness, even though it doesnt look kind. The pain still hurts, and moms who are sitting in the waiting room still feel helpless. But theres hope for moms in waiting. Beckys son recently entered rehab. Shes still in the waiting room, but she now has seen a glimmer of hope, that the surgery is almost over and recovery and restoration is at hand.

Photo by Byron Spires courtesy of The Havana Herald Quincy Commissioner Keith Dowdell has asked Florida Department of Law enforcement officials to conduct a formal public corruption investigation over an allegation that Interim Quincy City Manager Mike Wade directed the citys human resources director to illegally destroy hiring/personnel documents, according to a press release issued Sept. 12 by Steele Communications. An FDLE spokesman said FDLE is reviewing the complaint. On Monday, Sept. 22, a Steele Communications press release announced that a group of concerned residents from throughout Quincy have formed a political action committee, Citizens for a Better Quincy, with the goal of seeking reform in Quincy city government. According to the press release, the group is led by former Quincy City Manager and Public Works Director Willie Banks. We are committed to immediate change to lead our city in a new direction, to put an end to business as usual, and to make certain our citys leaders serve the peoples interests, not personal interest, Banks said in the release. Our goal is to restore accountability, honesty and openness in city hall. To do so, we will work with elected commissioners who are ethical and understand the government process for those commissioners who do not, we will work diligently to remove them from office and find individuals who will best serve the people of Quincy. A press release issued Tuesday morning announced that earlier that day, members of the Recall Committee for District 2 and Citizens for a Better Quincy submitted more than 200 district 2 registered voters signatures by way of petition to Quincy City Clerk Sylvia Hicks to initiate the recall of Quincy City Commissioner Micah Brown. That is more than double the number required by Florida law, according to the release. The recall committee is led by Emmanuel Sapp. Look for more on this story in the next edition of The Times.Quincy commissioner asks FDLE to investigate alleged corruption; newly formed group seeks to oust Micah Brown Gadsden Humane Society seeks donationsThe Gadsden County Humane Society is seeking donations of gently used, small household items including clothing for yard sale fundraisers to support the efforts of this animal advocacy organization.

From the animal shelter down the street to the local food pantry, helping out in your area strengthens community involvement and also helps you meet others and build contacts that could help you down the line. Check out the many online resources available that fit potential volunteers with opportunities that exist in their areas, such as volunteermatch.org, volunteer.gov and serve.gov, as well as many others.Find meaningful jobsBe sure to take some time to think about your own personal interests and hobbies before searching for volunteer oppor tunities. Do you have any social issues that you feel passionately about? While your daytime job may not allow you to pursue such passions, a volunteer position may be the ticket.Make it a group effortDo you have friends and family members who share the same interests and willing ness to help others? If you do, gather them up for one of the many opportunities that exist for groups. This not only allows each member to experience the gift of volunteer work, it also builds camaraderie among the group.Balance your obligationsWhile you may wish to jump into your new endeavor right away, be sure to review your schedule carefully before overcommitting your self. Many organi zations will allow you to work a limited schedule and gradually build more hours over time until you are more com fortable or available. Celebratingthosewhogoaboveandbeyond TheManyWays toVolunteerThe opportunities to give are endless. Here are some of the ways you can get involved through charitable organizations that support women and children. Special donationsHere are some ways you can help out with charitable donations:Hair: For children suffering from longterm hair loss due to illness, a donation of hair is turned into a prosthetic, helping to restore confidence and a sense of normalcy.Wedding dress: A donation of your special gown can help out a number of organizations.

In fact, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, women continue to volunteer more often than men across every age group and educational level. With so many devoting their time and energy to giving back, its easy to find and learn from the many female mentors hard at work in your own community. Recognizing remarkable womenIn a global initiative to celebrate the self less work everyday women do within their communities and around the world to improve the livelihood of others, PANDORA Jewelry has launched Hearts of Today. The program allows the brand to support a variety of charitable causes that are important to women.

Through this program, we are now able to financially support the causes that our consumers are passionate about. Those semi-finalists will be chosen by a group of five remarkable women leaders whose individual resumes boast an impres sive list of philanthropic work, from there, the public will vote and the top eight entries will receive $25,000 for their charity.

Make sure you do not WANT to do it and get the feeling that you HAVE to do it. Add to the distasteful thought of the task, by remembering how much you hated doing it or a similar job at another time. To complicate matters, see if you can actually become afraid of what you HAVE to do. Think about all the things that have to be done before you can even start do to the job you HAVE to do. Also use your imagination and imagine some terrible thing that could happen if you did do what youre putting off. Think up some excuses why you cant do the job right now. This will make you temporarily feel better. Let your right brain come up with an alternative activity. Itll de nitely give you something else to do. Something you WANT to do. Start doing the alternative activity, while keeping in the back of your mind the job you should be doing. Thisll help build up fear, guilt and anxiety and will make the job you HAVE to do seem even worse. Itll help you strengthen the picture you imagined in step three. Go to bed and think about doing the terrible thing tomorrow and work very hard to fall asleep while your guilt, fear and anxiety cloud your sleep with dark, dismal, gloomy and ominous thoughts. When you follow these seven simple steps, youll be able to put off all the things you dont want to do inde nitely. Youll be able to be lled with stress, irritability, anger, frustration, guilt and much, much more. Youll have very little free time for the things you love to do and if you take time to play, the undone task will haunt you. The better you get at procrastination, the more you will be able to add to the list and in no time at all, youll be completely buried and overwhelmed. You could even get sick; the best excuse of all! But wait, there is another side to the procrastination coin. Have you ever given yourself credit for all you get accomplished in the name of procrastination? I had one woman tell me she knows when she starts cleaning out the garage, that it must be near time to le her income tax return. Often we procrastinators will work on something weve put off in order to put something else off. If you stop to think about it, you have probably accomplished more by trying to avoid what you dont want to do. Another thing can happen thats positive. The very thing youve avoided, if left long enough, sometimes will just go away. I had put off painting a wall in our living room and we had a water pipe break in the wall and the whole wall had to be replaced, and the contractor painted it for me.
