A Cooking Mother Is a Joy Forever
I feel sorry for the chil-
dren of non-cooking mothers.
Said young ones are so de-
prived, and do not realize it at
all. Oh, they have this large,
hole in their souls, but they do
not understand what would fill
that space. Those of us with
cooking mothers understand
and appreciate the proper ap-
plication of dumpling to va-
I am most fortunate to
have grown up in a home
where the mother cooked. My
father cooked, too, but his ef-
forts were mainly in the fried-
fish-and cheese-grits line. He
did submit a recipe for hush
puppies to a church cookbook
once, but no one would ever
be able to make anything edi-
ble from his instructions. That
recipe goes down in our fami-
ly lore as one of the funniest
pieces in print.,
Not so our mother's cook-
ing .and her recipes. She
learned to work at the stove
early in life; as a nine-year-
old, she was handed the re-
sponsibility of making the din-
ner and .supper biscuits for
Grandfather and the field
hands. Needless to say, she is a
master biscuit, baker. Many a
Sunday night, wee. gathered
around the kitchen table after

time. What a pity that would
Mother cooked up all the
traditional favorites chicken-
and dumplings, collard greens,
smothered steak with rice, ba-
nana pudding, towering
chocolate cake, and custard
'pies. The bunch of us and
whoever else was in the house
dispatched it all with gusto.
Everything that came from her
stove seemed delicious.
Not to say that she was
not adventurous. I was about
10 when she tried a recipe
named Chicken Italian. It was
sort of like Brunswick stew,
only with Italian spices and
chicken instead of squirrel and
hog head. I don't care for
Brunswick stew, and'I didn't
care for Chicken Italian, but
everyone else seemed to love
it, so we had it pretty often.
She also learned to cook
pizza. Remember those Chef
BoyArdee boxes with the
yeast dough you had to mix
and the thick tomato sauce?
Mother learned to dress those
rascals up with extra cheese
and various toppings and
make them her own instead of
After my paternal grand-
mother died. Mother learned

that her nmolher-in-li\ i h:id in-'
vented in the desperation of
poverty. That cake is still a
mainstay of our Barrett family
reunions. Mother practiced
making stuffed mushrooms
about two years ago when she
overheard me saying some-
thing like, "Man, I love stuffed
mushrooms." She relished
some stuffed squash at a fancy
luncheon, so went home and
tried it until she got it right.
She has always been willing to
venture into the Great Land-
scape of Food preparation.
Many of her traits I could
have inherited from her. But -

the gift of cooking. Often
when I am mixing up some
dish (those sweet potato bis-
cuits, for example) I think of
my mother and her willing-
ness to prepare meals, snacks,
and treats for her family and
anyone else who dropped in.
As children, we took her work
for granted. Now, as adults,

More Steam Over Wal-Mart
To the Editor:
I am very glad that Dianne Bachari has respond-
ed to the letter I wrote, urging Madisonians to think
long and hard before allowing Wal-Mart to set up
shop in the county. This is an important issue, and
should be debated openly and freely. I appreciate Ms.
Let's stir the pot and see what steam bubbles rise
up. Ms. Bachari did not dispute a single one of my
facts regarding Wal-Mart's atrocious record of labor
relations and union-busting. She did not contravene
any of the personal experiences I eyewitnessed in Tal-
lahassee when Wal-Mart wrecked the traffic patterns
and suburbs north of Thomasville Road after they set
up their delightful Big Boxes there. She was unable to,
disprove the fact that niost Wal-Mart workers relyon
Medicaid for health care, because the company does
not have a health care plan within the reach of its "as-
sociates," as these poor wage-sla- es are called.
I would urge everyone in Madison Countr to
read Barbara Ehrenreich's- "Nickeled and Dhned."
which has a splendid first-person account olf lihat it is
like to work for Wal-Mart at the end of it. It max\ aso
be of interest to Madison residents to learn that 45-50,
percent of all Wal-Mart employees qt ii their jobs
within a year of being hired. What kindof company
is it, that has a 50 percent turnover rate every year?
Answer: A company that despises its workers. A com-,
pany that .\ ill do an\ thing for mone\ A company that
I, am writing this letter in response to a letter you pub-
lished, in the Enterprise-Recorder on Friday, April 22nd, by
a very disappointed citizen, regarding the. "Miss Black
Madison County Pageant", which was held on Sunday,
April 24di,. at the Van. H. Priest Auditorium. Let me say
thai I am \ er. disappointed also. trsL because the writer did
not sien their name to the leuer. and s-cond. because they'
did not thornighl re.id the tvwo 12) previous issues of the
Madison County Carrier (WEDNESDAY, APRIL 13th,
and WEDNESDAY, APRIL 20th), in which we stated our
purpose-for sponsoring the pageant, and there is nothing
about it that represents racism, and I must say that I am
known by a lot of people in this community, black, white,
and Hispanic, and they all know that I would never be as-
sociated with any group or organization that caused divi-
sion between the people of Madison County.
There are some serious issues and concerns facing our
youth today, especially our black youth, and our church
family, wanted to use this pageant as a catalyst or small
stepping stone to address these issues and concerns, which
include: the school dropoutrate, low FCAT scores, teenage
pregnancies, underage drinking. '~lcir'dnigs. streergann. :"
domestic violence,-reported cases,:of child abuiunnetii.
ployment, and not to mention the Juvenile Justice System,
is simply immoral.
There's another thing you can say goodbye to,
once Wal-Mart arrives: Your local newspaper. Wal-
Mart never advertises in papers. All the ad re\ enue
that is currently supplied by the local merchants, those
hardworking, inefficient goofballs that Ms. Bachari is
all out of patience with, will be gone, very soon after
Wal-Mart arrives. A newspaper tradition that goes
back in print to the 19th century. an in valuablee archi% e
of local life and history, will disappear. But you will
have Wal-Mart's big blue facade, and a big motor-oil-
stained parking lot to replace it. Madison will be well
on its way to looking like Anytown, U.S.A. I mean,
we weren't Paris, we weren't Rome, we weren't the
epicenter of Western Civilization. But do Nv e ha\ e to
look like a greasy, filthy, sodium-lamplit Junk-Burg?
Do we have to reduce ourselves down to being the
Least Conimon Denominator? Let Ms. Bachari come
to South Florida and see what wonders have been
%\ brought here. in the name of commerce and develop-
ment! Let her drive on 1-95 at rush hour between
Broward arid Palm Beach counties' We have Wal-.
1l\ants aplenty down here!
I said 11 in mrn tirs letter, and I'll qi it again. It's'
not for me to decide It's for ',,ou to decide It's your
country and \our to"% n and your livelihood and your
ne\\spaper. MNake up .our minds.

Is Not Racism
Xhich is bursting at the 'ean-Ls with our young people.
It saddens i) heain .i'know that when the statistics
are presented our black youth ranks at the top or near the
top of each category mentioned.
Realizing the plight of our young people, what shall
we do? Stickburheads in the sand andhope that all of these
problems go away. And no this pageant can't and won't
solve all of the, problems but, we can begin to address
them, by working to develop positive role models among
our youth, help build their self-esteem and confidence, of-
fer them educational scholarships to our local Commnunir'5
College, and give them array of hope and positive outlook
for the future, which will benefit all of Madison County and
its citizens.. This is our statement of purpose, and there is
nothing racist about it. There two (2) old saying "It Takes
A Whole Village To Raise A Child" and It Is Better To
Build Youth Than To Mend Men", we are just'irying to do
our little part in making this Community and Our Great
Nation a better place to live, for the Glory of God. Please
don't condemn us for that, and turn somediing meant for
good into something the enemy of souls will use to keep us

Membership has its privileges. It also has its responsibilities.
When I accepted Christ as my Savior, I accepted the privi-
leges of His forgiveness for my sins, as well as accepted the keys
to Heaven and the promise of life eternal and a mansion in Heav-
en. I also accepted the responsibilities that came with it: living a
life that is reflective of Christ and following His commandments.
I haven't always lived up to my responsibilities, but God offers
me a chance to ask for forgiveness, in Jesus' name, and sincere-
ly mean it, and repent of my sin, and it's like it never happened.
When I joined the church, I also accepted the privileges of-
fered. I was given a chance to fellowship with likeminded be-
lievers and make friendships that would last through eternity. I
also accepted the responsibility that came with joining the
church. Although attendance isn't compulsory, it is encouraged,
because God's Word said, "Let us not forsake the assembling of
ourselves together." There are other responsibilities that I also
take seriously, such as business meetings (though I hate the very
thought of a church business meeting, I know that it's important).
Other responsibilities include paying tithes and offerings, as well
as cleaning the church.
I know a woman, whose father was a pastor at a church. He
was also a member of an organization outside of church that de-

confronted her father about the matter. She pointed out to him
that, even though he was a pastor, he missed church sometimes.
He never missed his club meetings. It wasn't right, she said. Her,
father realized the truth of her statements and dropped out of the
Are you a member of a church? Have you been neglecting

You knew this was coming. You looked at the calendar and saw
that this Sunday is Mother's Day. So of course, you knew the local
columnist would have something to say about the special day. You are
And when my mother says, "You do plan to write aMother's Day
column don't you?" that seals it.
Where did this holiday come from? Did some almost-forgotten
mother request dinner and flowers?
No. Here are the facts.
The earliest Mother's Days can be traced to the spring celebra-
tions of ancient Greece in honor of Rhea, the another of the gods. Dur-
ing the 1600s, England celebrated a day called "NMothenng Sunday."
honoring the mothers of England.
During this time, many of England's poor worked as ser ants for
the wealthy. As most jobs were located far from their homes, dthe ser-
vants would live at the houses of their employers. On NMothering Sun-
day, the servants, would ha\e the day off and were encouraged to re-
turn home and spend the day with their mothers. A special cake, called
the mothering cake. as often brought along to provide a festive touch.
As Christianity spread throughout Europe, the celebration
changed to honor the Mother Church. Over time the church festival
blended \w ith the Mothering SundaN celebration. People began honor-
ing their mothers as \tell as the church. .
In the United States, Mother's Day was first suggested in 1872 by
Julia Ward Howe, who wrote the .Xords to TheBattle Hi\mn of the Re-
public, as a day dedicated to peace. Howe held Mother's Day meet-
ings in Boston for several years.
In 1907, Ana Jarvis, from Philadelphia, began a campaign to es-
tablish a national Mother's Day. Jarvis persuaded her mother's church
in Grafton, West Virginia to celebrate Mother's Day on the second an-
niversary of her mother's death, the second Sunday of May. By the
next year, Mother's Day % as also celebrated in. Philadelphia .
Jarvis and her supporters began to write to ministers, businessmen,
and politicians in their quest to establish a national Mother's Day. II
.was successful, and by 1911 Mother's Day was celebrated in almost
,e\'erv state. In 1914, President Woodrow \ilson made the official an-
nounceinent proclaiming Mother's Day as a national holiday to be
held each year on the second Sunday of MaI .
The Bible has lots to say about being a mother. It must be impor-
tant if we go by how much space is gi en to it. That's how it works at
the newspaper. Big story-big coverage. I found about 40 references to
mothers in the. Bible. The Bible says, "Children obeN your parents."
Parents know a lot. There is also a great % erse in Proverbs about mak-
ing father and mother glad.
Mothers tell Bible stories and go to baseball games and sit in
wooden bleachers. Mothers tell, kids to. wash the purple snow-cone
stain from their faces. Mothers pmra. lMothers cook and %wash and teach

with," and is reminded of
those blessings every time
they pay her a visit, which she
says is quite frequently. The
list even gets longer when the
family tree grows and sprouts
sapling great grand children
around the grand oak.
"It's hard to keep track of
them all,. but I dearly love
those children," says Johnson.
When she was young, she
didn't have time to play like
most children of this era, but
worked hard on a farm during
the depression years and knew
very little about terms like
recreation, playtime or down-
time. When asked what she
did for fun on the farm she
replied, "Well, we tried to
make our days fun when we
worked. I didn't get paid, but
my daddy still had a lot of
work for us, and instilled in
me discipline, which later paid
off in life.
On the farm, she boasts of
all the things her father grew
such as corn, cotton, tobacco,
"We grew everything and
also raised hogs. My mother
made the best goats head

Timeline Of T
rational Nurses Week
In 1953, Dorothy Suther-
land of the.U.S. Department
of Health, Education,, and
Welfare sent a proposal to
President Eisenhower to pro-
claim a "Nurse Day" in Octo-
ber of the following year. The
proclamation was never.
In 1954, National Nurse
Week \\ as observed from Oc-
tober 11 16. The year of the
observance marked the 100th
; anniversary of Florence
Nightingale's mission to
Frances P. Bolton sponsored
the bill for a nurse week. Ap-
parently, a bill for a National
Nurse Week was introduced
in the 1955 Congress, but no
action was taken. Congress
discontinued its practice of
joint resolutions for national
weeks of various kinds.
In 1972, again a resolu-
tion was presented by the
House of Representatives for
the President to proclaim
"National Registered Nurse
Dav." It did not occur.
In 1974, in January of
that ear, the International
Council of Nurses (ICN) pro-
claimed that May 12 would
be "International Nurse Day."
(May 12 is the birthday of
Florence Nightingale.) Since
1965, the ICN has celebrated
"International Nurse Day."
In 1974, in February of
that -year, a week was desig-
nated by the White House as
National Nurse Week, and
President Nixon issued a
In 1978, Ne,\ Jersey
Governor Brendon Byrne de-
clared May 6 as ."Nurses
Day." Edward Scanlan, of
Red Bank, N.J., took up the
cause to perpetuate the recog-
nition of nurses in his state.
Mr. Scanlan had this date list-
ed in Chase's Calendar of An-
nual Events. He promoted the
celebration on his own.
In 1981, ANA, along
with various nursing organi-
zations, rallied to support a
resolution initiated by nurses
in New Mexico, through their
Congressman, Manuel Lujan,
to have May 6, 1.982, estab-
lished as ,"National Recogni-
tion Day for Nurses."
In 1982, in February,
the ANA Board of Directors
May 6, 1982 as "National
Nurses Day." The action af-
firmed a joint resolution of
the United States Congress
designating May 6 as "Na-
tional Recognition Day for

The Haire Family To Appear At
Reapers of the Harvest Church
Night service was good. Shirley Prentiss
sang "A Living Prayer." Preacher's message
was from Acts 13 as the disciples worshipped,
prayed, fasted. God has no hands, no feet, ex-
cept His followers; therefore, we are to be His
witnesses unto the uttermost part of the earth.
That message was the one Jimmy Williams
gave us in morning service. As always, when
he speaks on behalf of the Gideons, he stirs us
with his experiences and believes wherever we
find ourselves in the uttermost part of the earth.
We welcome Annette Bass and her mother
Brenda into our church and will pray for them.
Neat unique arrangement Sunday in honor
of Viktor's graduation by his parents, Preacher
and Stacey (Larrabee). Prayers for him, for
them, for Anna. We are very blessed they labor
A blessing always for Dan Campbell to
play guitar and sing. He sang "Till This Storm
Passes Over" and "I'd Rather Have Jesus."
Sunday, he said he usually talks over with his
family what he'll sing. Their little grandson,
Gabriel, said, "Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star"
and he sat on the front row with him. Dan sang
and at the end, he sand "Twinkle, Twinkle Lit-
tle Star" and the whole church was stirred and
Little Gabriel was happy.
Congratulations to Scot Copeland on open-
ing his new law office in town, we wish him the
best; to Jack McLeod on graduating from the
University of Florida; to Clay Bass, on gradu-,
ating from NFCC; to Patti, Glen and Elizabeth
Schmidt on new baby in their family Bryson
Lee Vowell, April 15th, and to Dot Reeves, his
-great grandmother; to Ethel Clark, 97 on the
30th, given a party at. Lake Park Nursing Home
by Louise Bland so sad to see her not doing
well at all.
Earnest prayers still for Betty Jane Wilson;
Elaine Green (Yvonne Smith's daughter) as she
has lost an eye from cancer; Iduma and David
Smith; Hettie Selman, and all other ill ones.
Over and over we are reminded of how un-
certain Life is. The saying for May Inspirations
2005 Calendar..."Look at everything as though
you were seeing it either for the first of last
time. Then your time on earth will be filled
with glory," by Betty Smith.
Yesterday was sixteen years Mother left.
Before then, Marjell had written "Little An-
gels' Britches" for her.
I pray when called that I'll be led
And may in glory stand.
A crown of thorns upon my head
A needle in my hand.
I never learned to sing or play
So let no harp be mine!
Through life until my dying day
Plain serving is my line.
And so accustomed to the end
Of applying useful stitches
I'll be content if asked to mend
The Little Angels' Britches.
Bless still Margaret Morris and family on
the death of her daughter, Faith Fells. A real
sweet service and a blessing for Faith's sons,
Ron, Dewayne, Charlie (and wife) to share the
loss with their sister Teresa and family. I had a
good visit withthem at the viewing.
Preacher asked Grandson Orlando to give
the blessing at the dinner at church! Good job,
Grandmother Margaret said. Preacher went to
South Georgia for emergency appendectomy
for Ray Pike. He is recovering!
Sad over the death of Miss Jessie Adam-
son; of Steve and Debbie Bass' cousin, Bobby
Slaughter, only 43.

Blast booth rental.
ICAN is a private, not-
for-profit organization, which
was formed by members of
the Madison County Ministe-
rial Association. One of the
purposes of the group was to.
have- a sort of clearinghouse
for local churches who reach
out to. those in need. A num-
ber of pastors were concerned
that individuals who would
constantly ask their churches
for money for food or utilities
would then go out and throw
away the money on alcohol,
cigarettes or drugs.
After ICAN was formed,
the group saw a need to not
only help the adults but also
the children in Madison
County. so they adopted a
program called the Kids Caf6,
which is held each afternoon,
following school, at the Dam-
ascus Missionary Baptist
Church Fellowship Hall, lo-
cated just off MLK Drive.
The Kids Caf6 assists
children with their school-
work, as well as provides a
place for them to enjoy recre-
ational activities. The pro-
gram also offers nutritional
snacks to' the children after
On Wednesday evenings,
the children go to church at'
New Testament Christian
Center and Fellowship Bap-
tist Church, as well as many
who attend their home
Dozens of children have
accepted Jesus Christ as their
Savior through the Kids.Caf6
ICAN falls under the um-
brella of the Madison County
Ministerial Association. A
Board of Directors under it
oversees the ICAN2 program,
which is in charge of the Kids
Caf6. The board is comprised
of Rev. Rich Quackenbush,

Your earthly body is the vessel which houses your

Yes, you must care for it since it is a temple. Howev-

through the pleasures of the flesh. He will tell you it is

for success. He will give you the ability to rationalize
having an adulterous affair. He will be there to tell you
to go ahead, indulge yourself have one more drink,
d overeat, etc.
This is destruction of the soul. This is what you
should fear and be on constant guard against. Nourish it.
Keep yourself away from temptation. Say no to the dev-

FEMA's Response to The Historic 2004 Hurricane Season

widespread and intense series of disasters in
15: Hurricane-related damage spurred disas-

Back From The Brink
Although not everyone else seems to be
getting all excited, recent news that the ivory
billed woodpecker has been positively identi-
fied in the White River National Wildlife
Refuge in eastern Arkansas has me about giddy.
This really is startling news the bird had not
been reliably reported alive in the United States
since 1944, and that was a sighting of only one
bird. Almost everyone in the scientific world
thought they were extinct. Yet rumors and
reported sightings continued to drift in over the
years. But never a verified sighting. The ivory
billed woodpecker has long been the Grail of
Campephilus principalis the ivory billed
woodpecker is second in size only to Mexico's
imperial woodpecker, a bird also thought to be
extinct. James Tanner, a PhD. ornithologist from
Cornell in the 1930's, and the authority on the
bird, did his doctoral work on the ivory billed in
the Singer Swamp, in Madison Parish,
Louisiana. As of 1939, he estimated that there
were 22 birds left alive in the southeast.
Over the years, I have had folks tell me
that they had seen ivory billed woodpeckers, but
in every instance they were mistaken, and what
they had seen was the pileated woodpecker, a
large, colorful, black, white and red bird that is
relatively common around here. The ivory
billed woodpecker is half again as large as the
pileated, and will often weigh a pound or more.
It does have an ivory colored bill, compared to
a black one on the pileated. Flight pattern
between the two birds is also drastically differ-
ent, as the pileated rather swoops through the air
in a rhythmic, up and down motion, while
reports of the ivory bill going back-to the 19th
century have the bird sk\ rocketing through the
woods more like a %%ood duck. And there i. the'
noise. Erirl', rep'n' .,' i he 'ir' r hIllcJ all com-
ment on the loud sound they make in flight, pre-
sumed so because of stiff flight feathers. The
ivory bill feeds mainly on beetles found in dead
or dying swamp hardwood trees. .
When nature was left alone and forests had
a chance to mature, there were always some old
trees in the process of decline. Reports from,
early observers of the bird going after beetles
are unanimous in their acclaim that the bird
seemingly goes to war on the tree. They are the
only bird that can strip healthy bark from a tree,
hastening its decline and attracting more bee-
tles. But they would absolutely tear a tree apart,
with a huge pile of chips at the base, while they
went after larvae. They tore the trees apart so
completely that there were numerous reports of
them actually toppling old trees. In natures own
neat way, that resulted in reforestation, as sun-
light hit a forest floor long denied any. The ivory
bill mated for, life, and generally had only two or
three eggs per clutch. Scientists postulate that
the large size of the bird, along with some
impressive defensive weapons in it's beak and
talons, made it an unlikely source. ot pre) for
predators. The bird was never common, with a
nesting pair requiring something like 3,000
acres of suitable range. Its large size, magnifi-
cent plumage, distinctive flight and signature
ba-BAM double knock when attacking trees
made it well known early on. This unique dou-
ble knock was one of the ways scientists just
confirmed the bird in Arkansas, and one of the
ways they plan on seeing how many more there
are without being invasive and disturbing them
tape recordings of their vocals and the distinc-
tive double knock.
When John Audubon was -roaming the
country in the 1820's, he regularly reported the
ivory,bill, while killing and collecting same in
the name of science. In Audubon's day there
were something on ihe o.rdei of 55 million acres
of mature swamp hardwoods, in the historic
range of the ivory billed, from North Carolina
south to Florida and Cuba, west to Te\.a:. east-
ern Oklahoma and Arkansas. Audubon had the
bird as far north as the confluence of the Ohio
and Mississippi Rivers. These were the flood
plains of slow moving rivers and streams, and
particularly the Mississippi River Delta with
almost half of the wetlands. Bayous and swamp
hardwoods and oxbow lakes. Old, mature tim-
ber. The bird was maintaining until after the
Civil War, around 1870, when we developed a
taste for southern wood. Once we got going, we
went through the big' wood pretty fast, and the
ivory bill declined at an equally rapid rate. By
the late 1880's the ivory bill had become rare, a
collectors item, and people went out of their
way to shoot them if they got a chance. There is
:an 1890 photo of Frank Chapman, creator of the
Audubon Society, in a boat on the Suwannee
River with a brace of the birds. While we were
busy cutting down the hardwood swamps the
' bird needed here, it did continue to maintain in
SCuba. The SpAmnsh American .\ar min1898,:iMp..
' e ,rti ,h .,iitdeescapade in the tropics, led us ,by
1900 to be in charge of that fine island. Once in
charge, we initiated a.very effective slash and
burn program to convert worthless swamp to
productive sugar. The bird didn't tolerate that for
.long, although reports over the years continued
to trickle in from Castro's Cuba that there were
still populations of the bird in the interior of the
country. Calls to Fidel were not returned.
Could they be here? We happen to live
in one of the few areas that could conceivably
hold a population, although I think your chances
at hitting the lottery are higher. A biologist at the
St. Marks' Refuge said he thought that, if they
could be here, he would bet on the Aucilla or
Wacissa River flood plains. While I think this is
the neatest thing since Carter developed Liver
Pills, I'll bet St. Joe officials are looking hard at
their maps. The discovery of this bird could well
lead, to some serious political bickering. The
bird demands a lot of space, and space is getting
expensive. Not all members of President Bush's
jdminintiration belong to the Nature
'Conser janc.. but. money is pouring into that
organization from around the country in support
of the ivory bill. I say welcome back and good
luck. Youi have some powerful enemies

Cont'd from Pag IA'
tendent, that she was. leaving to run a daycare center that she and her husband own in Perry.
French alleged in the lawsuit that she was constructivelyy terminated." indicating that she was
forced out of the position against her ow n w ill.
The Department of Education was'in'estigating French for alleged misconduct while she was
principal of Greenville Middle School at the time she quit the Excel School. On May 20. 2003.
School Superintendent Bill Roberts had attempted to remove her as the principal of the Excel
School because of-the investigation. After pressure from a number of ci% ic groups, including the
N'AACP Roberts backed down and suggested that she stay at the Excel School. The issue passed
by a 3-2 vote, with Keriby Hall and Bart Alford as the only board members \ outing against her stay-
ing at the school.
., The investigation into French-s.alleged misconduct, which apparently involved Florida Com-
prehensive Assessment Test (FCAT) scores, is still continuing, almost two years later.
French maintained that she was the victim of gender and racial discrimination because she
had "requested that the white wife of one of Defendant's members. Kenny Hall. be transferred to
another school rather than remaining at the Excel School where plaintiff was the Principal."
She claims that she was "constructively terminated" after objecting to the treatment she felt
was occurring at the hands of School Board Member Kenny Hall.
In the suit. French maintained that she "suffered emotional distress, mental pain rind suffer-
ing, past and future pecuniary losses, inconvenience, mental anguish. loss of enjo) ment of life and
other non-pecuniary losses, along with lost back and front pay. interest on pay. bonuses, and oth-
er tangible and intangible damages. These damages have occurred in the past, are permanent and
French also maintained in the suit that she has suffered "mental anguish. emotional distress.
expense, loss of benefits. embarrassment, humiliation, damage to reputation illness, lost wages,
.loss of capacity for the enjoyment:of life, and other tangible and intangible damages. These dam-
ages are continuing and are permanent."
French had earlier filed a complaint with the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commis-
sion (EEOC). The EEOC dismissed the complaint on September 15. 2004 because they were "un-
able to conclude that the information obtained establishes violations of the statutes."
French was represented in the lawsuit by Tallahassee attorney Marie Mattox.

had a new subdivision like this in 30 years," said Gary Webb, one of four people involved in
the company "Who knows, we could end up making Lee bigger than Madison."
Webb explained that buyers will be able to select their own builders, but certain restrictions
will apply to all houses constructed in the new development.
In other action, the council voted to permit a, communications antenna to be placed on the
town's water tower.
they are to be received into the hospital.
"If you bring a patient on a stretcher through the tent, bring them in through the center," said
Stewart, directing the team on the many different scenarios that they might face.
The Madison County Memorial Decon Team includes; Carol Harrington. Leslie Criss. Bruce
Reeves. Michelle Mack. Tamm) Osteen. Suzanne Truesdale and team leader Janice Green.
The highest priority for overall decontamination will be those who are medically triaged as
IMMEDIATE, and are in need of immediate life-saving medical procedures that can be done
quickly with the medical resources available on-site. Severely intoxicated nerve agent casualties
may be the highest priority for decontamination within this category.
The next priority for non-ambulatory decontamination will be those casualties medically
triaged as DELAYED. These casualties may have serious injuries and require definitive care, but
can wait for a short period of time w without compromising the outcome (for example. a victim with
a fractured lower leg.)
MINOR victims, those % ith no know n or suspected exposure to any chemical contamination,
follow treatment of delayed victims. The lowest priority for overall decontamination will be those
casualties medically triaged as DECEASED/EXPECTANT.
If sufficient resources exist, two mass casualty decontamination systems should be estab-
lished: one for ambulatory \victims and one for non-ambulatory victims. If available resources are
only sufficient for a single system, non-ambulatory victims are higher priority than ambulatory
"Because we have the area hospitals fortified with decon equipment and trained personnel, if
we need some more team members, or equipment, we can call Trinity Hospital, or talk to anoth-
er hospital in our region and receive the help needed," said Stewart.
"'This is a very labor intensive process and these people can't be in these suits more than 15
or 20 minutes. So. it's always good to have another team read)."
According to Stewart, the smaller hospitals are doing the best because the staff there consists of
locals who have a strong desire to help their community., and are better equipped to handle the fa-
talities of that community, than per say a larger city such as Tallahassee, where the hospitals are
under staffed for biohazard disasters.
