We were making our departure feeling frustrated and lost, as we so often do when we are unable to somehow manage to make her mother feel better.

  • After temperatures dipped into the low 20s and the wind chill made it feel like the teens, concerns about the homeless tugged at the heart strings of many people. For Lt. Jim Corder of the Gadsden County Sheriff's Office, the tugging turned into action.

    Corder said after he read in a regional newspaper that the Tallahassee shelter was at capacity and people were going to be turned away, he called Sheriff Morris Young and suggested using part of the sheriff's office on the ground floor as a temporary shelter.
