  • Medical technologist takes fast action after she feels lump

    As a medical technologist, Geraldine Evans has always been interested in almost anything medical and is constantly reading about health care.

    “I found the first lump in my breast when I was 14 years old, and it turned out not to be cancerous,” she said.

    But 20 years ago when she found another one during a self breast examination, the news wasn’t so good.

    She told her local physician, Dr. Perry Cattau, who sent her immediately to Dr. Richard Zorn in Tallahassee for further evaluation. Following Zorn’s examination, Evans said she said to him, “Just tell me it’s not.”

  • Quincy garbage fee up

    Times Editor
    The City of Quincy’s budget for fiscal year 2012-2013 is a little less than $30 million, which is less than the previous year. Of that amount, approximately $7.9 million will be used to operate the general government.
    There will be no increase in property taxes, and the millage rate will remain the same as the past fiscal year.
    There will be an increase in garbage and sewage up to $29.13 monthly, but that rate is locked in for the next five years.

  • Quincy woman now 16-years cancer-free

    Occasionally Erma Wilford feels the need to tell her story. Usually when she’s in church and wants others to know what she describes as “the goodness of the Lord.”

    Wilford’s story is that she has been a breast cancer survivor for 16 years. The Attapulgus, Ga., native who now lives in Quincy and works at the Florida Institute of Public Safety recalls that throughout her ordeal, she was never afraid or nervous.

    “The Lord had showed me what the outcome was going to be, so I had no reason to be afraid,” she said.
