in changing the way elections
are conducted in the state.

association, said elections

voting opportunities.

Vaughan, who recorded around
2,500 votes during the early
voting period last year.
State elections supervisors
are proposing in concept, with
details to be fleshed out later, a
permanent early voting period,
perhaps as long as two weeks,
leading right up to Election

$250,000

S awarded in

DCF suit


By MARCIA MILLER
STelegraph Staff Writer

A Bradford County jury
ruled the Department of
Children and Families (DCF)
100-percent negligent and
ordered Fred Floyd of Lake
Butler be paid $250,000 at the
conclusion of a civil trail that
claimed DCF should have
done more to protect Floyd's
daughter Ciara in 1996.
"Once they came back and
_ ruled DCF was 100-percent
negligent,iT-idn't-really- care.
about the amount," said Floyd.
"I wanted someone else
besides me to come up and say
it was their (DCF's) fault."
He also said he hopes this
suit will prompt DCF to
change some of its methods in
the future so that another child
doesn't suffer. "Our main goal
was to bring attention to this
problem and make sure that
they (DCF) take
responsibility," Floyd said.
He said he had already been
told that at least one attorney
involved in a different case
with DCF feels Floyd's lawsuit
has prompted a more positive
response from the department
in that case.
"If it helps one other child,
then it's been worth it," Floyd
said.
The trial ended Jan. 5 with
the jury finding for Floyd. The
DCF attorney could not be
reached for comment prior to
press time Tuesday and Floyd
said he was uncertain if DCF

BC decides to bid site prep for Meng Dairy Rd.


By MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Staff Writer

Bradford County still intends
to complete the paving of Meng
Dairy Road, but construction
will stop while the commission
enlists a contractor to finish the
project.
The commission decided to
forgo most of the county's work-
on road construction in
December so that its road
department can begin tackling
road maintenance with renewed
focus.
"At our workshop, it was the
consensus that the county stop
doing construction on Meng


Dairy Road and have our
engineer prepare a bid to finish
what had been started,"
Chairman Doyle _Thomas
reminded the board Jan. 3,
asking if this was still the case.
Commissioners reaffirmed
their position, although
engineer Jerome Kelley saw
problems with having potential
contractors estimate the cost of
completing the.30 or so percent
of earthwork remaining before-
progressing to the asphalt work.
The county needs to define a
scope of work that contractors
can actually bid oni, KeHey said,
otherwise it could wind up
paying more if contractors
assume all of the earthwork still


needs to be completed.
"If >ou tell a contractor to go
out there and give you a bid on
finishing that road, he's going
to assume the worst case
scenario. In other words,
you're going to be'paying quite
a bit of extra money that you
probably don't need to pay,"
Kelley said.
The road department's
estimate for finishing the
earthwork was between one and
two months, and the county
would have had to reobtain
equipment it was renting and
hire OPS workers to complete
tie" work. The commission
could, however, have bid the
asphalt work while grade was


,, completed.
Although the option of the
county finishing the work was
considered, the commission
ultimately decided against it.
"We are so far behind now
with our regular road
maintenance that it's a shame,"
Thomas said.
The commission consulted
with surveyor Pat Welch by
conference call, and Welch said
Surveying the unfinished
earthwork and putting the plans
on paper could be accomplished
in less than two weeks. Kelley
said incorporating that work
into specifications that could be
advertised would take another
two weeks.


Advertising the request for
bids will take between 14 and
30 more days, which means the
earliest a contractor could begin
work on the road is probably
sometime in March.
Commissioner Eddie Lewis
said he hated to slow the work
down an extra 30 days but the
time should be made up once a
contractor is awarded the
project. In the meantime, he
said, the county can do so much
more in the arena of road
maintenance.
In future road construction
projects, the county will only be
involved in right of way
clearance.

Continued from p. 1A
manager position two years
ago, but withdrew his
application. At that time he
was the county administrator of
Menominee County in
Michigan. In the past, he was
city administrator in Belle Isle,
Fla., county administrator in
Berrien County, Ga.. and held a
few other city and county
management positions in
Florida and Georgia.
Elly Johnson of Southport,
N.C., who was most recently
employed as the city manager
of Boiling Lake Springs, N.C.
He has also served as city
manager in Millersville, Tenn.,
Bunnell, Fla., and Marianna,
Fla. He also held the position
of city clerk/treasurer in
Talladega, Ala. His municipal
management experience
stretches back to 1975 in
several other Florida and
Georgia cities.
Kenneth Sauer of North
Baltimore, Ohio, where he
currently serves as village
administrator. Prior to entering
municipal management, he was
an' environmental scientist with
MS Consultants of Columbus,
Ohio, and an environmental
technician for both R.D. Zande
and Associates and Owens
Coming Fiberglass.
Interviews of the top four are
scheduled to begin Monday,
Jan. 24, depending on the
candidates' schedules. If
circumstance requires it, any
one of the other five candidates
that survived the initial
screening could take someone's
place in the top four.
The top four candidates will
be mailed a willingness survey
prior to their interviews, which
in a few questions measures
their continued interest in the
position given certain aspects of
the job such as submitting to a
background check, working
long hours and living in
Bradford County.
The candidates will also be.
given an assignment in strategic
planning related to the city's.
electric utility and asked to
prepare a presentation for-the

radioed
s leaving


Keystone to have the Melrose
Fire Department in Putnam
County respond alongside Clay
County. Melrose Assistant Fire
Chief John Acree agreed with
Mobley that his department
arrived on the heels of
Keystone's first trucks.
Melrose was then followed by
trucks from Theressa and
Hampton, bringing the total
number of counties involved to
three. Before all was said and
done, Clay County alone had
five trucks on the scene.
Melrose volunteers, being
"second in," laid the lines and
tapped the fire hydrants, with
which, despite other reports.
firefighters say they
experienced no difficulty. A
total of 1,100 feet of hose was
laid between the two hydrants,
tapped by the department.
Acree said a line was also
pulled from the Melrose truck.
"The house was heavily,
heavily involved on our arrival,
so there was a large amount of
fire. So I assume they were
thinking they needed the extra
water support," Acree said.
Mobley said Melrose could
only have responded quicker
than Keystone if that
department had received the
initial dispatch call, and Acree.
agreed.
The issue is that the Melrose
area lies in the distant corner of
four separate counties, and
residents are split between those
counties. This Seminole Ridge
Subdivision home lies in
Bradford County, but residents
on the .other side of the street
are in Clay County. When
neighbors became aware of the
fire and placed an emergency
call, that call went through Clay
County dispatch.
"It took. our (Clay)
dispatchers one or two minutes


to contact their (Putnam)
dispatch and have their trucks
in route," Mobley said.
But because the residents in
that neighborhood were either
in Bradford or Clay, Melrose
would not have been the first
department dispatched, even
though it is the closest
department, because it is a
Putnam County department.
"This has been an ongoing
issue for many years," said
Mobley, who has been involved
in the Keystone department
since 1989. *
"The biggest problem we
have is communications. We
don't have communication
.together." he.. sid, adding that
he didn't even know Bradford
'CC66nty' Was responding to the
fire until .trucks from
Theressa and Hampton arrived
at Seminole Ridge.
Acree, however, said there is
a solution to this problem.
Automatic aid, is different from
mutual aid, he said.
With mutual aid, the county
initially involved makes the
decision on who to call and
when to call them for backup.
With automatic aid, if a .call
came in from a particular area,
the need for aid from a
neighboring county, is
automatically displayed at the
dispatch center and the call for
backup immediately.made.
"We've discussed it as
departments, but' no.one's ever
taken the ball and run with it,"
Acree said.


Changes would be needed at
the dispatch level.
Had automatic aid been
available, Melrose, the closest
department, could have been
the first dispatched.
Even if Melrose had arrived a
few minutes sooner, Acree
wasn't sure it would have made
a difference in this case given
the intensity of the fire.
"As a matter of fact, when the
first team arrived, the units
thought it was a two-story'
house. That's how much fire
there was when we got there,"
Acree said.
Homeowner Helen Smith has
asked the Bradford County
Commission to look into issues
surrounding response to the
fire.
Mobley was disheartened by
what he interpreted as criticism
of local firefighters. He said
Keystone firefighters, who
remained on scene until 3 a.m.,
may not have been able to save
the home, but they did recover
and return photo albums
belonging to the homeowners
and buried a pet that was lost in
the fire. This is an example of
service above and beyond the
call of duty, Mobley said.
The three counties have plans
to meet this month, which could
result in some changes, he said.
"All three departments
(counties) are in agreement that
it doesn't. matter what county
gets there and puts out the fire
and it doesn't matter what
county the fire's in. We're
going to do what's best for the
citizens," Mobley said. .

MCC is only valid during the time the
homeowner occupies the property.
SNEW MORTGAGE
REQUIREMENT
An MCC cannot be issued in
conjunction with the acquisition,
replacement refinancing of an
existing mortgage. However, a

Starke's Vincent will go to D.C.


By MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Staff Writer

Despite the mayor's request
that the commission reconsider
its decision, Starke City
Manager Lee Vincent will still
be traveling to Washington,
D.C., next month.
The trip is a legislative rally
sponsored by the American
Public Power Association
between Tuesday. Feb. 8, and
Friday, Feb. 11.

According to the
association's Web site, "The
APPA Legislative Rally brings
hundreds of locally-elected and
appointed officials. public
power managers, and legislative
experts to the nation's capital to
convey public power's success


story."
In addition to lobbying on
behalf of .publicly-owned
utilities, Vincent will also have
the-opportunity to- speak to
legislators about other issues
facing the city.
In December, the commission
agreed to allow Vincent to
attend the rally. After
reviewing the dates and
realizing Vincent's last day
working for the city is Feb. 18,
Mayor Carolyn Spooner
suggested it would be better to
send Project Director Ricky
Thompson to Washington and
allow Vincent to spend his final
weeks finishing up other
matters before he goes.
Commissioner Steve Futch
said Vincent has the level of
connection the city needs to be
successful in Washington and it


would be wise to let him go.
Commissioner Carolyn Wimpy
said Vincent played a role in a
recent legislative allocation to
the city.


Other than paying for
Vincent's time, the trip should
not incur any cost for the city.
The Florida Municipal Power
Agency will reimburse the city
for Vincent's attendance.
The commission also agreed,
at the suggestion of
Commissioner Don Tilley, that
Thompson accompany Vincent
to Washington in order to be up
to. speed on the issues
discussed.

gov@bctelegraph.com or 904-

ELECT.r
Continued from p. :A

would also be less restrictive.
Registered voters could
potentially be allowed the
convenience of voting in any
one of a county's multiple
voting centers, regardless of
their voting districts.
Larger counties would of
course have more centers, but
Vaughan sees four or five such
centers serving the needs of
Bradford's cltzen.
.The concept is not a
completely experimental one.
Vaughan said that in Larimer
County, Colorado, the elections
supervisor went from 143
precincts to between 30 and 40
voting centers,
"The voters there just really
loved it. They had a 93 percent
turnout in the general election
last year," Vaughan said,
The connectivity available
through modern teLhnrdlvgy
ilould allow each center to ijt\
current on who has and hasn't.
voted, preventing someone
from trying to vote at multiple
centers. Vaughan said.
Proi sional ballots, offered to
voters whose names don't
appear on an official register of
voters often because they've
shown up at the wrong precinct.
would be less of a concern.
InSitad.'each center w6dil ha e.
balls'. avalhible for': each'
county state and congressional
district.
Here. again, technology in-
the form of electronic voter
identification can-be integrated
into the process. By swiping
one's driver's license through a.
card reader, a voter can be
identified as registered and
receive a copy of the correct
ballot after signing a printed
affidavit.
"The 've got it down where
the process takes less than 20
seconds to process a voter, and-
eventually I think its going to
end up coming iith a signature
pad and other things that will
speed up the process even
more," Vaughan said, adding
that the -sy stem worked


beautifully in hurricane-ravaged
counties like Charlotte and
Hardy where new precincts had
to be set up.
With fewer voting centers
compared to precincts, there
would also be a reduction in
staffing. Vaughan, who
currently has more than 100
volunteers, said he would need
just 30 dedicated volunteers to
take on the extended hours that
come with an extended voting
period,
One of the huge pluses,
Vaughan said, is the cost
savings the county will realize
by not having to bring a number
of current precincts up to
compliance with the American
with Disabilities Act, a
requirement of the Help
America Vote Act. Bradford's
20 precincts (in 17 locations)
would be narrowed to four or
five voting centers that both
cover the expanse of the county
and best meet the needs of able
and disabled voters.
"If I can go out and handpick
four to five voting centers and
.only have to worry about ADA
compliance in those four to five
locations, it's going to be so
much less. expensive for the
county," Vaughan said.
Traditional precinct
boundaries can be maintained
for political parties who elect
precinct committees and for
candidates who monitor
statistical data on voters from
thbo'e ptecricts, he sdid.'" 6,
"Basically it will change,
from the 'candidates'
'perspective, how they target
voters because the voting period
starts.so much earlier than it did
i-n the past. Really that
happened this year in that we
had I11 days of early voting."
If there is a disadvantage to
the proposal, Vaughan said it
would be finding an equitable
way of locating voting centers
throughout the count\.
"Some people who may now
have a precinct within a mile or,
*two of their house may have to
actually go a little farther, but
they have a longer time period
to vote, and they don't have to
go to a singular location."
.-The state legislature would


have to approve the changes
proposed by the Florida State
Association of Supervisors of
Elections, and that could be a
hard sell given the legislature's
resistance to change. Vaughan,
who can be reached at 904-966-
6266 or through the Web site
www.bradfordelections.com,
said the point of publicizing the
proposal now is to receive
feedback from the public.
"I think the voters have
spoken in that they definitely
like the concept of having the
ability to cast a ballot early,"
Vaughan said.
The association's legislative
agenda also includes
encouraging the state to
permanently repeal the second
primary, increasing the required
distance for poll solicitation and
allowing write-in candidates to
appear. on universal primary
ballots.

the crime.
At the center of Floyd's

Neither complaint was lodged
against Ciara's mother, who

mother shared custody.

The second complaint was

took no action because doctors

$250,000 awarded to father in suit against DCF
$250,000 awarded to father in suit against DCF


By MARCIA MILLER
Telegraph Staff Writer

A Bradford County-j-ty-
ruled the Department of
Children and Families (DCF)
100-percent negligent and
ordered Fred Floyd of Lake
Butler be paid $250,000 at the
conclusion of a civil trail that
claimed DCF should have
done more to protect Floyd's
daughter Ciara in 1996.
"Once they came back and
ruled DCF was 100-percent
negligent, I didn't really care
about the amount," said Floyd.
."I wanted someone else
besides me to come up and say
it was their (DCF's) fault."
He also said he hopes this
suit will prompt DCF to
change some of its methods .in
the future so that another child
doesn't suffer. "Our main goal
was to bring attention to this
problem and make sure that
they (DCF) take
responsibility," Floyd said.
He said he had already been
told that at least one attorney
involved in a different case
with DCF feels Floyd's lawsuit
has prompted a more positive
response from the department
in that case.
"If it helps one other child,
then it's been worth it," Floyd
said.
The trial ended Jan. 5 with
the jury finding for Floyd. The
DCF attorney could not be
reached for comment prior to
press time Tuesday and Floyd
said he was uncertain if DCF
plans to appeal the decision or
not.
The civil lawsuit was first
filed by Floyd in 1997 and was
thrown out once before
Floyd's attorneys brought it
back into the court system.
Ciara Floyd was three and
living with her mother in 199(

prison after being convicted of
the crime.

complaints that his daughter
was being mistreated both
of which were lodged by Floyd
prior to the child's death.
Neither complaint was lodged
against Ciara's mother, who

mother shared custody:
The first complaint was

Floyd said the bruises and
the child's sudden reluctance
to go home to her mother.- a
reluctance that had never been
present prior to that time -
caused him to take her to the
doctor and tell a hospital social
worker that he thought Noegel

his statement.
Floyd said he made the
statement at the time based on
knowledge that Noegel was
arrested for domestic violence
at an earlier time.

DCF investigators said they


did not know about the 1995
sworn complaint when Floyd
lodeed his complaint in 1996


and D)(F attorneys said even if
investigators had that
knowledge. it would likely not


have been enough to prompt
DCF to remove Ciara from the
mother's home.

SUIT
Continued from p. 1B


legally, the department could
not remove Clara without more
evidence of abuse and could
not restrict Noegel's contact
with her without more
evidence.
The jury. in deciding in
favor of Floyd's suit,
apparently felt DCF should
have done more to protect the
child.
Floyd said he would urge
parents or grandparents who
disagree with actions taken by
DCF or who disagree with
DCF's failure to take action --
to go to an attorney or law
enforcement.
"Take care of those kids." he
said. "If you feel DCF is not
doing the job, follow up on
things yourself. I did what I
thought I was supposed to do
(in leaving it in DCF's hands).
I will always wonder if I
should have gotten a lawyer
sooner or done something
different."

Parado.



Local woman talks about

life after the Jaguar Roar


Donna J. Parado Windsor, a graduate of
Bradford High School who went on to serve as
an NFL cheerleader with the Jaguar Roar from
1995-2003, sent in this information about what
is going on in her life now:
Where is she now?
After years of the "Roar" of the Jaguars, I can
honestly say I am retired. Five years of
cheering, two years as an assistant coach and
my final year as an ambassador cheerleader
were very hard to let go. I have grown
throughout the years, since day one, watching
the Jaguars develop into a strong team as well as
learning more about myself. I can honestly say
the experience has changed my life.
Currently, I am a full-time inside sales
representative for Unisource, a printing and
industrial supply company. For the last four and
one-half years, my co-workers have shared
strong support for the Jaguars. My daily
activities not only include sales, but also
boosting morale in the company by
volunteering for committees planning fun
events and also charitable fundraisers.
, On the side, I continue to dance and entertain.
I aritalso a teacher at Boleros Dance Institute.


This is my way of continuing to dance and stay
in shape. I also encourage my students to
audition for professional teams, especially The
Roar.
Not only have I continued to dance, but I
picked up a new hobby. For the last two years I
have been professionally deejaying for DeLand
Entertainment. My husband Chip and I deejay
at weddings and special parties. This is a great
way for my husband and I to spend quality time
together, although we are working, we are also
having fun.
I have also continued to volunteer for Mrs.
Weaver's Jaguar Honor Row Foundation
through the Alumnae Roar Association. It's-
been difficult to stay in touch with my Roar
sisters since we all .lead busy lives, but the
alumnae program has made it possible.
On my continuing journey, my future goals
are to obtain a masters in business, spend more
time with family and friends and continue to
dance and entertain to my heart's content. You
ask, "Will I ever give up dance?" "I doubt it!" I
know the Roar will always be a part of me and
I am going to continue to support my team, the
Jags."

Navy Seaman Recruit
Kenneth C. Alexander,
son of Deborah L. Ellsworth of
Lake Butler and Robert L.
Alexander of Lake City,
recently completed U.S. Navy
basic training at Recruit
Training Command in Great
Lakes, Ill.
During the eight-week
program, Alexander completed
a variety of training which
included classroom study and
practical instruction on naval
customs, first aid, fire fighting,
water safety and survival, and
shipboard and aircraft safety.
An emphasis was also placed
on physical fitness.
The capstone event of boot
camp is "Battle Stations". This
exercise gives recruits the
skills and confidence they need
to succeed in the fleet. "Battle
Stations" is designed to
galvanize the basic warrior
attributes of sacrifice,
dedication, teamwork and
endurance in each recruit
through the practical
.application of basic Navy
skills and the core values of
Honor, Courage and
Commitment. Its distinctly
"Navy" flavor was designed to
take into account what it
means to be a sailor.



If you have always done it that
way, it is probably wronq.

Consumer

Bulletin
By Braulio L. Baez, Chairman
Florida Public Service
Commission
Phone Bill 101
Reading your phone bill
isn't what it used to be. What
once required a brief glance
now demands a concerted effort
to make sure everything is
where- it should be, the'
numbers add up and nothing is
added on that doesn't belong.
What follows is a brief guide
to making sense out of your
monthly phone bill.
A more detailed brochure,
called "Navigating Your Phone
Bill," can be downloaded from
the PCS's website at
www.floridapsc.com.
A residential phone bill has
three components: local service
charges, long distance service
.charges-and taxes:.
The local service portion
may .include some or all of the
following:
.FCC Local Number
Portability Line Charge (also
known as. a Number Portability
Surcharge or Service Provider
Number Portability Fee):
Local phone companies were
permitted, but not required, to
assess a fee to cover the costs
associated with allowing
consumers to retain their phone
number when switching
carriers. The right to charge the
fee was time-limited by the
Federal Communications
Commission, .and. some
consumers have seen this
charge disappear from their
bills.
Residential Line Charge:
This is the monthly local
service charge. In most cases it
is a flat rate fee, although
sometimes it may appear as a
flt rate plus a usage charge.
This is what-the local pione
company is paid for providing
service.
Emergency 911 Charge: This
fee is assessed and paid to the
city or county providing the
consumer with emergency 911
service.
:FCC Network Access
Charge (sometimes called a
Subscriber Line Charge or an
Interstate Access Surcharge):
The FCC allows local phone
companies to be compensated
for the use of their local
network in completing long
distance calls.
_:This fee goes to the local
cdinpanies, not'to the FCC.
Telecommunications Access
System Act Surcharge: This
fee is used to provide
telecommunications devices
and relay services for Florida-
residents with hearing or
-speech impairments. By law,
the money collected from this
fee goes to a non-profit
corporation established by law
to provide devices and services
to qualified indij idualJs._ --_
-tnh-iversail- Service Fund
Charge: A fee used to ensure
affordable access to. the_
telecommunications network
for low-income consumers or
those who live in areas where
the cost of providing service is
high. Also- used to provide
telecommunications access to
schools and libraries and
advanced services for rural
health care providers.
SConsumers may receive a
separate bill from their long
distance provider or may have
it included with their monthly
local bill. In either case, a long
distance bill will normally
include the following:
Long Distance Charges:
Billing statements usually
itemize calls, including.date.
placed, number called and the
duration .of the call.
Universal Service Fund
Charge: Interstate carriers are
required to contribute to the
federal universal service fund,-
as are local service providers.
The FCC allows interstate
carriers to pass along this
charge to consumers but does
riot require them to do so.
Minimum Us':ge Charge:
Some carriers charge customers
a minimum monthly fee for
long distance service, regardless
of whether the customer
actually makes calls.
Calling Plan Charges: Some
consumers subscribe to calling
plans that provide a range of
options that meet specific
customer demands.
SThese plans vary widely-in
terms of what is offered and


prices range from a few dollars
per month to $25 a month.
The third aspect of a
monthly phone bill is taxes.
Essentially, there are two kinds
of taxes levied on a phone bill,
federal and state.
Congress, not the FCC,
imposes a three percent tax on
all telecommunications
services, including local,
interstate and wireless. The
state_ dds--what is called a-
"Communications Service
Tax."
'''here are two parts to the


state tax: the "Local
Communications Services
Tax," which are city or local
.taxes, formerlyy called
"franchise fees"), and a "State
Communications Services
Tax," (which used to be called
a "Gross Receipts Tax").

utility companies charge for

telephone service within the

New red

grouper,

dolphin and

wahoo rules

now in effect
CONTACT: Lee Schlesinger
(850) 487-0554
Th elorida-Fish and-Wildlife-
Conservation Commission
(FWC) reminds anglers that
new rules are now in effect to
manage red grouper, dolphin
and wahoo.
The daily recreational bag
limit for red grouper now is two
fish per person (within the five-
fish aggregate grouper limit) in
Gulf of Mexico state waters.


This limit also applies in Gult
federal waters. Florida state
waters extend nine nautical
miles offshore in the gulf. and
federal waters extend beyond
state waters.
The new limit on recreational
red grouper harvest is intended
to help rebuild red grouper
stocks in the gulf. The
minimum size limit for red
grouper remains at 20 inches-
toia leiTtffth, and the daily
recreational bag limit in
Atlantic Ocean state waters is
still five fish per person (under
the five-grouper aggregate
limit).
In addition, new management
rules are in place for dolphin
and wahoo. These rules are
intended to be consistent with
recently implemented


regulations for dolphin and
wahoo in Atlantic Ocean
federal waters, which were
developed to prevent over-
fishing of these species. The
FWC has also implemented
other measures to protect
dolphin and wahoo in state
waters. The new rules:
Designate dolphin and
wahoo as restricted species,
---.--Est-ablis h-a-2-OifncTfork
length minimum size limit for
all harvest of dolphin on
Florida's Atlantic coast,'
Establish a statewide
maximum recreational harvest
limit of 60 dolphin per vessel
(except 10 dolphin per paying
passenger on for-hire vessels),
Establish a statewide daily
two-fish recreational bag limit
and a 500-potind commercial


daily vessel limit for wahoo,
Require commercial
vessels, harvesting dolphin and
wahoo on the Atlantic coast, to
have a federal permit,
Prohibit the sale of
recreationally caught dolphin or
wahoo (except qualified for-
hire vessels may sell
recreationally harvested
dolphin), and
--* Requiire all dolphin and
wahoo to be landed in a whole
condition.
Other FWC rules that
continue to apply for dolphin
include prohibiting the
commercial harvest and sale of
dolphin less than 20 inches fork
length, a 10-fish daily bag limit
for recreational harvest of
dolphin and limiting dolphin
harvest to hook and line.

By CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer

Science is exciting.
Bradford Middle School
teacher John Tinsler thinks so.
Presumably that's why he
teaches the subject, but Tinsler
would also like to see his
students become more excited
about science.
Other teachers, at BMS and at
other schools in Bradford
County share Tinsler's
sentiment and that's why
students at BMS, Lawtey
Community School and
Southside and Starke
elementary schools participated
in something new this year-a
countywide science fair, which
was held Tuesday at .the
Bradford County fairgrounds.
"John and I have talked about
it for a couple of years," said
LCS teacher Cindy Combs. "He
just kind of brought it to
fruition this year."
More than .170
projects-including those done
by some home-schooled
students-were set up at the
fairgrounds. The projects
varied, from comparing
different brands of batteries to
testing whether or not vitamins
increase a person's appetite,
from testing whether or not
temperature affects how high a
tennis ball can bounce to testing
whether different types .of
music affect plant growth.
Some students put their
building and design skills to
use-Maxon Johnson and Ryan
Redding each built a trebuchet
(medieval catapult) and Trey
Shannahan built a working
hovercraft.
Judges looked at the projects
Tuesday morning, while
students, parents and other
members of the community
were able to view them that


afternoon and evening.
The set-up at the fairgrounds
came about after a meeting in
August between Combs, Tinsler
and eight other
teachers-Robert Bell (BMS),
Roger Chilson (BMS), Anna
Kirley (BMS), Eric Verunac
(BMS), Julia Ripplinger (SSE),
Susan Ames (SE), Pam Bryant
(SE) and Frances Stahler (SE).
The subject of the meeting?
How to get students more
excited about doing science
projects.
Each school has typically
held its own inclusive science
fair on campus. Tinsler said he
thinks students will view the
science fair as a bigger deal if
they are competing with
students throughout the county.
"The other teachers felt that
way, too," Tinsler said. "The
other teachers felt like, 'Let's
beef this up. Let's get some
excitement going again.'"
Added to that excitement is
an awards ceremony, which
will be held Thursday, Jan. 13,
at the Bradford High School
auditorium at 7 p.m. Every
student who participated in the
science fair will be recognized
and given a ribbon during the
awards ceremony, Tinsler said.
That will precede the
announcement of the category
winners.
"We're hoping that will also
generate some interest as these
children watch their peers get
awarded and get some special
recognition," Tinsler said.
Though students have to at
least be in middle school to
advance to the regional science
fair, the Bradford science fair
included students from Starke
"Elementary School. That school
held its own science fair and its
winners displayed, their projects
at the fairgrounds.

Camp Blanding command


passes to Nelson


Two ceremonies to recognize major changes-
of-command leadership at the Florida National
Guard's premiere training center in north central
Florida near Starke were held Sunday.
The afternoon ceremonies at the Camp
Blanding Joint Training Center recognized
changes of command for Camp Blanding itself as
well as the 211th Regiment Regional Training
Institute (RTI), which is located on Camp
Blanding.
Col. David "Benny" Nelson, a St. Augustine
resident with more than 25 years of military
experience, assumed command of the Camp
Blanding Joint Training Center Sunday. He
assumed command of the training center from
Col. William Petty, also a resident of St.
Augustine, who has served in the Florida Guard
for nearly 25 years. Col. Petty is newly assigned
to the Guard's Joint Directorate of Military
Support responsible for coordination and
response to the needs of the civilian community.
Maj. Gen. Douglas Burnett, adjutant general of
Florida, provided comments on Nelson's ability
to lead soldiers in a combat zone and his
extensive knowledge on training which make
him the obvious choice to help keep Camp
Blanding a premiere training site to prepare
soldiers and airmen for 21st century warfare.
Petty's 10-month tenure included an
outstanding safety record. Over that period,
Camp Blanding logged 194,000 military training
days and more than 36,000 training days for
civilian organizations including law
enforcement. "That's almost 231,000 training
days supported without major accident or injury,"
said Petty.
The Camp Blanding Training Site is a training
and conference facility available not only to.
support National Guard units, but groups from all
branches of the military, law enforcement; state


agencies, governmental agencies and nonprofit
civilian organizations as well. This state-
owned property consists of more than 72,000
acres with multiple training facilities including
indoor/outdoor training, conference facilities,
recreation areas, motel and food service.
Upgrading of facilities and training areas
continues to meet the training needs of the
Florida National Guard and its partners -
whether training is for military missions in the
global war on terrorism at home and abroad or
enhancing normal peacetime skills.
Col. Daniel Nievinski, a Jacksonville native
with more than 20 years of military service
who was promoted prior to the command
change, assumed command of the Regional ,
Training Institute. Nievinski succeeds Nelson.
Burnett promoted Nievinski and recognized'
his extraordinary coordination and leadership
skills for training soldiers to be officers and
professionals. His experience with the
inspector general's office, as administrative
officer with the 83rd Troop Command in
Tallahassee and numerous deployments, re-
deployments, and demobilizations, enhances
his ability to oversee crucial programs and
handle multiple tasks that will be needed in his
new assignment.
Nievinski addressed his new command with
words of encouragement: "We have a huge
responsibility, obligation and sense of
commitment to prepare all of our students,
NCOs (non-commissioned officers) and officer
candidates for the possibility of combat. We
are entrusted with the lives of America's sons
and daughters to train them, to mentor them,
to lead them and to act as. their role models."
SThe RTI is responsible for providing training
in combat arms, leadership, military skills,
officer and enlisted professional education, and

Southside Elementary teacher making a run at record


By CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer

Bradford-High School's track
and field program has produced
three state champions in the last
three years. Could a 45-year-c
champion be next?
Al Solano, a Bradford Hi1 .
School and Bradford Middle
School assistant coach, has set
his sights on competing in a
couple of national indoor track
and field meets this year,
including the U.S:A. Track and
Field (USATF) National
Masters Indoor Championships
(March 11-13) in Boise-Idaho. _-,'*
It is there where Solano, a
teacher at Southside Elementary
School, has his eyes set on
setting a new world record in
the 800 meters in the 45-49-
year-old men's age division.
"I've been working seriously
for about a year now," Solano
said. "I think I can do it."
The world record Solano is
shooting for is 1:57.8,. As of
December, Solano was clocked
at a time of 2:03, so he feels
getting his time under two
minutes won't be a problem.
"I'm just confident I'm going
to do it," he said.
Solano was a competitive
runner in high school and
college and had competed in
several 5K races over the last
several years. Running with the
BMS and BHS cross country
and track athletes sparked his
interest in breaking the world
record in the 800m.
"As I started running more
seriously, I noticed my time
was getting better and faster,"
Solano said. "I started giving
serious thought about setting
new heights for myself."
Solano asked fellow cross
country/track and field coach
Jon Alexander to put him'
through a time trial, in which he
was clocked at a time of 2:06.
Solano said Alexander told him
with a little training, he should
be able to get his time under
two minutes.
That's how things started,
approximately a year ago.
Solano has been running 14
miles every day (seven in the
morning, seven in the
afternoon). His time has
dropped and he feels it will do
even more so when he takes
part in a competitive race.
"I've done 2:03 on the track
without competition, so I feel
with good competition I will
definitely run under two
minutes," he said.
Solano first took up running.
as a freshman in high school.
He claimed a New Jersey high
school state championship in
the mile and later ran a
personal-best 3:58 in the mile
when he attended the University
of Tennessee. Solano also
clocked a personal-best 13:58 in
a 5K run at Tennessee.
In 5K competitions over the
last several years, Solano ran a
course-record time of 15:44 in
the Ridgefield (N.J.)'Run
Against Drugs and won His age
division in the following races:
the 2002 Paint the Towne Road
Race in Daytona Beach, the


Evergreen Pumpkin Run in
Jacksonville and the 2004 Race
to Prevent Homelessness in
Jacksonville.
Solano also placed second in
his age group in the Autumn
Fitness and the MAD Hatter 5K
runs in Jacksonville in 2002 and
in the 2003 Memorial Day 5K
race in Jacksonville. He placed
14'' overall in the 2002 Office
Depot Corporate Cup in
Jacksonville.
Now, with his sights set on a
record in the 800-meter run,
So.lario plans to keep
competing. He wants to

KH boys remain perfect in district


By CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
Chad Hapner scored three
goals for the second straight
match as the Keystone Heights
boys' soccer team defeated
district opponent Fort White 8-1
on Jan. 7 in Keystone.
Hapner scored the first and
last goals in the match against
Fort White and all three of his
goals were unassisted.
"With six goals in our last
two "district games, Chad
Hapner has really come alive
and really looks comfortable on
the field," Keystone head coach
Roger Lloyd said.
Hapner's first goal came in
the 14th minute. Approximately
three minutes later, Fort White
tied the match, but the Indians,
(6-4) snatched the lead right
back when Dustin Hayre scored
off of an assist by Sean
Gillespie.
Hayden Rhodel's unassisted
goal put the Indians up 3-1 at
the half.
Hayre finished the match
with two goals,. while Al Duren
and Derek Tornwall each
scored a goal. Michael McLeod
and Brandon Waters each had
an assist.
The win marked Keystone's
12th straight in district play
dating back to last season. The
Indians have outscored district
opponents 22-3 in four matches
this season, including a 7-0 win
dver Interlachen on Jan. 6.

Keystone girls

are 5-1 in district


By CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
The Keystone Heights girls'
soccer team won its fifth
straight match and improved to
5-1 in district play after
defeating visiting Fort White 2-
1 on Jan. 7.
Keystone (11-2-1 prior to
Jan. 11) scored both of its goals
in the first half. Sarah Poncher
had a chance to score in the 20th
minute, but couldn't find the net
on a penalty kick. The Indians
finally got on the board in the
24th minute when Kaiti
Thompson scored with an assist
from Tysee Williams.
Poncher put Keystone up 2-0
when she scored on a
breakaway goal in the 26th


minute.
Poncher played a huge role in
helping, the Indians win their
first two matches after the
Christmas break. She scored
both goals in a 2-0 win over
Middleburg on Jan. 4, the
pulled off the hat trick, scoring
three goals in a 6-0 win over
district opponent Ihterlachen on
Jan. 6.
The Indians played district
opponent Santa Fe on Tuesday.
Santa Fe handed Keystone its,
only district loss on Dec. 7-the
first district match the Indians
have lost since the 2002-03
season.
Keystone will wrap up
district play with a makeup
match at Fort White on
Thursday, Jan. 13, at 5 p.m. The
Indians then host Bartram Trail
on Tuesday, Jan. 18, at 5 p.m..


Hapner scored three goals in
that match, two of which were
assisted by Hayre and Brad
Gober. Gillespie had three
assists on goals by Gober,
Rhodel and Keith Wheeler.
SRyan Hannah added the last
goal of the match on an assist
from Greg Oakley.
Keystone has now won four
in a row and six of its last seven
matches. All of the Indians'
losses have come against bigger
schools.
"The plan was to play some
very, very big, top-quality
schools early on so we could
prepare for the district season,"
Lloyd said.
That plan is working
"beautifully," Lloyd said,
adding that the Indians are
peaking at the right time.
Lloyd said a key to the
Indians' recent success, besides
the output from Hapner, has
been their ability to control the
midfield with players such as
Hayre and Tornwall. Another
key is the team's steady
defensive play.
"Our defense has always
been strong and remains the
anchor of the team," Lloyd said.
Keystone hosts Hawthorne
on Thursday, Jan. 13, at 6 p.m.,
then travels to Alachua to play
district opponent Santa Fe on
Saturday, Jan. 15.
On Monday, Jan. 17, the
Indians travel to play a makeup
match against Fort White at 7
p.m. Keystone then hosts Ocala
Vanguard on Tuesday, Jan. 18,
at 7 p.m.

Deer season ends for most of
us on Jan. 23. That's about 10
days out. We are about to
transition from one season to the
next. Thirty minutes after
sundown on- that Sunday
evening, some of us are done for
the season. 'But, as there is
indeed much work to be done in
preparation for next year, there is
also a great deal of other
hunting, fishing and outdoor
enjoyment ahead.
One thing we can do
immediately is to study the
habits of the deer, learn all we
can and, hopefully, become a
better hunter and sportsman.
This may start with an
understanding that the deer is a
creature of the edge, where one
border or perimeter changes to
another.
The transition creature
The deer is truly a transitional
creature. He moves along edges
- edges of woods, roads, trails,
stands of trees, creeks, fields,
crop lines, fence lines, fire
breaks, you name it a deer
can be sighted literally anywhere
that there is a transition zone
from one topographical area to
another.
He browses. He eases along,
nipping this shrub and that long
grass. He eats some acorns or.
nuts and whenever he can find it,
he adds a few grains of corn or
anything he may come across,
including your rose bush or


shrubbery! By chance, if- he
encounters your garden or crops,
he will probably try a little of
whatever you are raising. Deer
don't have pockets or they
would haul it all off!
He is always transitioning,
whether feeding, walking,
seeking a mate or fighting off a
rival.
Strategy
If we are to successfully hunt
this transitional creature, we
need to be prepared to meet him
on his own level. What is his
level? Transition.
One unexpected thing
A few years ago; after
spending nearly all of my deer
hunting time just sitting, I
decided to try a little different
strategy. It came down to this -
I try at least one unexpected
thing each hunt. I try to mix
something new or different in
every time I get a chance.
One example is I try to change
the route I take to and from my
stands. While doing this, I have
encountered both deer and
turkey in, unusual places. A
couple of times, I was easing
along, not paying attention, and
had a deer nearly run over me,
scaring both of us half to death!
I was somewhere I wasn't
supposed to be and so was he.
No, I didn't get a shot off, but I
had a great story to tell.
Sometimes on private
property, I walk-hunt. This is
literally "stalk hunting" through
the woods. (A safety note here:
Wear hunter's orange and


respect all property lines. Safety
first, always!)
About 20 years ago, I got my
first shot at a nice Georgia buck
while I was stalk hunting. Yes, I
missed. I was using a borrowed
rifle with a much shorter barrel
than I was accustomed to and I
believe that I shot over the back.
Another lesson learned.
So, by doing one unexpected
thing, such as rerouting myself,
or walking through the palmetto
patch instead of around it, I have
encountered game animals. Just
doing something differently can
change your luck.
Stay alert
A friend of mine took his
teenage son hunting a few years
ago. He told his son to hunt until
a certain time in the morning,
then get down and go back to the
truck. He also told him that if he
got too bored, just go on back to
the truck and wait.
Well, after a couple of hours
sitting in the stand, the boy gave
up, made his way back to the
truck, got in and promptly fell
asleep.
A little while later, his dad
came along, looked over, and
there were two deer standing just
a few feet from the truck! Were
they watching the boy sleep? We
will never know, but had that
young fella stayed alert, he may
have harvested a buck.
Most of us have encountered
deer at unexpected places, and
sadly most of us were not ready
to react. Staying alert in the
woods is imperative, both from a
safety standpoint and also a
possible opportunity to harvest.
Conclusion
The deer: He moves when the
weather changes, or when the
moon waxes or wanes or darks
out. He moves when he feeds,
drinks and breeds. He hides, he
is always alert and he can see,
hear and smell better than you
and me.
But he is always in transition
and there, in the transition zone,
is where we meet!
