  • When you take a look at fingerprints closely, it’s easy to see two things: everyone has them and each person’s prints are unique.

    Using fingerprints as fodder for a lesson for both themselves and the children they served last week, 17 teens and their leaders, a total of about 22 people, embarked on a unique mission to serve their community and their Lord.

    Mike Park, minister of students, said the youth at First Baptist Church in Quincy wanted to do something locally to help their own community.

  • Helping someone in need can be as easy as slinging a hammer – just ask any of the youth from Thomas Memorial Baptist Church or First Presbyterian Church in Quincy.

    The two youth groups, along with a group from First United Methodist Church in Niceville, worked last week on projects in Gretna and Havana. The groups, a total of about 70, all stayed together at Centenary Camp in Gadsden County, and were divided into work teams of about 10-12 students, plus some adults, each day.

  • From judges to janitors, everyone in Gadsden County government knows Eugene and Glen Wood. The two silver-haired brothers leave people smiling wherever they go.The eldest, Eugene, is the comedian of the pair and has a ready quip for just about anything at any time. Glen is the quieter of the two, but he can also bring a smile.

    The two started working for Gadsden County 8 years ago as construction maintenance workers after careers building houses together in Calhoun and Liberty counties declined.

  • Ola Bryant of Tallahassee, along with Gale Johnson of Havana and Don Q. Parker Sr. of Midway, are pleased to announce the engagement and forthcoming marriage of their children, LaTonya Altovese Bryant and Avereston Disraeli Parker Sr.

    The bride-elect is a 1991 graduate of Havana Northside High School, and the groom-elect is a 1988 graduate of the school.

    The wedding is planned for July 18 at 5 p.m.

  • “Me, a nerd, a geek? No way, Jose!” What a rude awakening last Sunday morning turned out to be! 

    I was going through my usual, “What am I going to wear to church?” routine, as I have been ever since I can remember.  I know that I am not alone with this dilemma as I’m sure many gals go through it, as well as guys.
