Hampton marshal's house burned


SArsonist
sought, no
injuries associated
with fire.
By MARCIA MILLER
Telegraph Staff Writer
An early-morning fire on
CR-221 in Hampton March 10
has been ruled arson, and the
home owner, Hampton
Marshal John Hodges, said he
believes the fire was set to
intimidate him into backing
out of an investigation.


Detective David Cheers of
the State Fire Marshal's Office
said the fire is still under
investigation, but it has been
determined to have been
started by. an arsonist. A
reward of up to $2,500 is being
offered by the Florida
Advisory Committee on Arson
Prevention to anyone who
provides information that leads
to an arrest in the case.
Anyone with information'
should call 1-877-NOARSON
(662-7766).
Hodges said he has been
cooperating with the FBI, the
Florida Department of Law
Enforcement and the Bureau of


Alcohol,' Tobacco and
-Firearms in an investigation
that is dirug-related.
Jeff Wesrcott, an agent in
the FBFs Jacksonville office,
said he could confirm that FBI
agents are involved in the fire
investigation along with the
fire marshal's office, but said
he could divulge no
information other than that at
this time.
S-Hodges said he owns the
house in Hampton, but ilt he
and his wife sleep most of the
time at a house his wife owns
in Lawtey; No family member
was present at the house when
the fire started and no pne was


injured.
"I'm at the (Hampton) house
every day. I had a lot of
equipment, tools and
belongings in the house," said
Hodges. "1 still had my office
there and did my book work
there."
Hodges is marshal for
Hampton, but also owns and
runs .a. home renovation
business. He estimates that
equipment related to that
business and to his position as
marshal -- equipment that was

valued at about $15,000. The

choice of My Little Pony sheets for his toga bu only

Mr. Miraculous is a humorous


look at

By MARCIA MILLER
Telegraph Staff Writer

A crowned royal takes a
final walk across the stage
while the crowd cheers. The
trophy gleams in the spotlight
and the scepter sparkles as it's
held at just the right angle to
capture the reflected stage
lights.
Fortunately for those in the
audience who were
assembled for an evening of
humor, that describes the only
halfway serious moment of
the Mr. Miraculous
Competition held at Bradford
High School March 12.
Derek Saucer, son of
Ginger and Terry Saucer, will
wear the Miraculous crown
until next year, but all seven
competitors provided enough
comedy for a whole season of
standup.
The other competitors, all
of whom won at least one of
the individual awards given
that evening. \%ere: Justin
Alarez. son of Greg and
Stephanie Alkarez. Mitchell
Anderson. son of Mitch and

Rhoden.
Allen Perr) \ias supposed
to have been the seventh


beauty
contestant, but a competition
for the track team caused him
to miss the event since he is
an integral member of that
team.
Stepping into his place at
the last 'minute was Dustin
Murray, son of Richard and
Audree Murray. Although he
came into the competition
late, Murray's performance
yielded a full quota of laughs.
Mr. Miraculous is a tongue-
in-cheek look at beauty
pageants that did not involve
the male contestants dressing
up like women. However, it
did involve a lot of hilarity as
the teens proved a talent for
comedy has nothing to do
with how you dress.
Well, almost nothing.

headband had gone out of
control and grown to entwine
his body. Patel's cow-spot
toga and broadsword
provided a nice counterpoint
to Rhoden's Looney Toons
wrap-around. Desai struck
numerous Olympic poses to
show off his toga and royal
blue accent piece.
There was also what some
people might call a talent
competition. However, in MIvr.
Miraculous this is referred to
as a specialty competition
since the amount of talent
involved is dubious. Of
course, contestants who
actually had a talent were not
allowed to use it, per the
rules. That is why Rhoden,
who is a member of-the
Christian rock band Northern
Portrayal and has ample talent
for music, wound up doing
the Napoleon Dynamite


dance on stage.
Desai said his specialty was
making sandwiches, so that's
what he did. On stage. A giant
butcher knife was used to
slice an unoffending
cucumber and all manner of
other vegetables. The veggies
were placed on pieces of
square wheat bread and put
into a microwave. What came
out of the microwave had
"miraculously" turned into a
giant foot-long sub sandwich.
Alvarez chose to do a song
that only truly talented
singers should attempt. He
sang "Tomorrow" from-the
Broadway show "Annie" and
most of the audience wished
he had waited until tomorrow
to sing it.. He..~ummed .the
parts he didn't know.
Patel recited what he said
was an original, but Boring
Poem. That isn't a value
judgement of the poem -
that's its title. Patel obviously
believes in -truth in
advertising. It managed to be
boring and funny at the same
time.
Saucer took a break dance
and added a lot of Saucer
style and came out with an
exciting and humorous
offering to the -tune of
"Everybody Dance Now."
'Anderson did a touching
performance of "I Believe"
while Murray worked up a
minor sweat doing an
aerobics workout on stage. It
could have been a major
sweat, but he was only using
two-pound weights.
The on-stage interviews
provided an opportunity for
one-liners. For example,
when asked what he felt was
his biggest concern with the
idea of independence after
graduation, Patel said "I'll
have to pay for everything."
Alvarez said the most
important article of clothing
was his socks "so my feet
don't stink."
Anderson said the item of
fast food he .most resembled

soft around the middle."

furniture and other contents of
the house, he valued at about
$15,000. The house itself,
which was a total loss, was
worth about $50,000. Hodges
had no insurance.
A neighbor of the Hampton
house called 911 at about 5:45
a.m. March 10, said Hodges.
Firefighters responding to the
fire had the additional problem
of dodging rounds of
ammunition that were cooking
off in the heat. Hodges? law
enforcement and personal
weapons were also stored in
the house.
"Everything I work with
except what was actually on
my truck was destroyed," said
Hodges.
Firefighters brought the fire
under control fairly quickly
and stayed at the scene until
well after noon to ensure all
the hot spots were out. "I can't
say enough good things about
the Hampton Volunteer Fire
Department," said Hodges.
When asked if he had any
idea why someone would
target his house, Hodges said
he felt the fire was set in an
effort to get him, to back down
from the federal investigation
he is participating in.
"I think this is a direct
retaliation against me in an
effort to try to keep me from
doing my job," said Hodges.
"It's an intimidation thing."
Although declining to relate
any details about the
investigation, he said that he
had no intention of backing'
down. "If a hoss throws you,
you get right back up on him
and ride," he said. "No one is
going to stop me from doing
what I- am supposed to be
doing."
Hodges first became marshal
of Hampton in 1982. After
three years as marshal, he
joined the Starke Police
Department for a little more
than three years and then
returned to Hampton as
marshal. He has held that
position since that time.
Hodges said that while he
feels certain criminal elements
are seeking to intimidate him,
most of the residents of'
Hampton have been very
supportive.
"The people of Hampton are
very upset about this. I've had

Hodges. He said that people
who have run foul of the law

they respect me for it," he said.
"The vast majority of the
people in this area are good

Hampton Marshal John Hodges surveys the burned-out hulk of what was once his
house.


"I know there are a lot of
cases that just don't get
solved," he said. The Renaud
family truly appreciates the
hard work done in solving this
case, he said.
Jonathan was 16 at the time
of Meghan's death and said
her murder placed an indelible
mark on every member of the
family. 'I can't even begin to
describe the affect this has had
(on the family)," he said.
Jonathan said the family
feels the outcome of the trail
was the "absolute best we
could have hoped for.-He's
(Knickerbocker's) not going to
get out of jail. That doesn't
change what happened 16
years ago, but at least it ends
here."
He said that years after the
family had resigned itself to
the belief that the case would
just never be resolved, the
knowledge that Knickerbocker
has been charged and will
serve time for it came as a
relief.
He commended the Florida
Department of Law
Enforcement, the state
attorney's office and every
other law enforcement officer
involved in the case; He gave a
special thanks to Stack for her.
perseverance. "(She, never let
this go," he said.
When Stack "as asked ho'w
she felt about the outcome of
the hearing March 10, she said,
"It feels great. I'm just so glad

Responding to hate crimes


Last week's article on the Ten
Commandments provided some
background on a case under-
consideration by the U.S. Supreme
Court. A ruling is expected, possibly in
June, before the court recesses for the
summer. It's a good bet the court will
find that displaying
the Ten
Commandments in
government-owned
buildings is
unconstitutional B ?11

symbols. This suggestion was
unacceptable to the Jewish community.
Another woman of Jewish ancestry
remembered a similar situation in
Denmark years earlier, when the king,
acting on orders from Hitler, ordered all


under amendment
No. 1, which states
in part: "Congress
shall make no law
respecting an
establishment of
religion, or
prohibiting the free
exercise thereof."
The words
"separation of
church and state"
weren't found in a
cursory search of
the Constitution, but
have become a
theme and catch-all
by anti-religionists
who frown on the
Judeo-Christian
faith. The meaning
of the word
"establishing" is
stretched pretty thin
sometimes.

Certified nursing assistant student Jennifer Mizell helps Marilyn Bellflower hold up
works of art she has created while at Windsor Manor nursing center.



Windsor Manor artist's


show planned for BC Library


By JENNIFER MIZELL
Special to the Telegraph

Everyone' has their own
special talents: running,
playing sports, or in Marilyn
Crosslin Belflower's case
painting.
Belflower is currently a
resident of Windsor Manor
nursing center. She has lived at
the center for almost a year.
She moved to Keystone
Heights from Birmingham,
Ala. and from Keystone
Heights, where she lived with
her daughter, to Windsor
Manor.
Belflower is an independent
person and it was her decision
to move to Windsor Manor.
She couldn't live alone and
decided to get help from the
professionals at the nursing
home instead of relying
completely on her daughter.
Administrator Barbara
.Brooks said, "She has really
done well. She has overcome a
lot of obstacles. The staff said
it is miraculous. She is not the
same person."
Belflower has been drawing
since she was six years,6ld and
painting since she was 10. She
earned a GED and got married
when she was 15. She and her
husband decided to start their
family then.
At the age of .32, Belflower
went back to school. ':she
eniroiled in Florida Junior
College. The counselors
advised her against majoring in
art. They urged her to major in
business or journalism because
she was so smart. She
graduated with high honors.
"It was hard," Beiflower
said, "but I made it"through it."
She earned her associate of
arts degree at FJC and
continued in the, bachelor of
arts program.
Belflower's son died and she
completed only one semester..
She quit painting for almost 10
years. During this time she
worked and took care of her
husband and children. Painting
just didn't fit into her busy
Schedule.

given by resident Marilyn Bellflower.


When Belflower first arrived
at Windsor Manor, she had
withdrawn from painting and
could not participate with the
other residents in activities.
The staff started giving her
more opportunities to do what
she wanted to do..
Soon as it was apparent she
wanted to paint and once she
was physically able, the staff
encouraged her.
Belflower has been teaching
art classes at Windsor Manor
since January. She paints with
Debbie Beck, the activities
assistant, in the activities room
at the home. She has
influenced some of the


residents and they have learned
a lot from her.
Belflower said, '"I'm not
unhappy here. Everyone is so
nice. They don't mind picking
up my art supplies for me,
since I can't do it."

An art show will take place
at the Bradford County Public-
Library during the week of
March 14-19 during the
library's regular hours.
The public is invited to this
free show.
You may direct questions
relating to the sale of paintings

Windsor Manor.

Cowboy

Church

raising funds

for sound

system
The Cowboy Church, which
meets in Lawtey on US-301 at
the Bay Tack and Feed Store
on the second Tuesday of each
month, is mounting a fund
drive to purchase sound
equipment for the services.
Matt Stuckey of North
Florida Music and Sound in
Starke has been loaning the
church equipment for the past
three meetings, but the system
available has been different
each time.
Stuckey's assistance has
been vital and his generosity is
very appreciated, said Lawtey
Cowboy Church founder Jim
Knight. However, being able
to purchase a sound system
would be preferable since it
would be the same system in
use for each service.
All of the offerings received
at the church during the last
two services have gone
completely to the purchase of a
sound system. :All of the
proceeds from the sale of the
Cowboy Church of Lawtey T-
shirts are going toward the
sound system as well. So far
the church has received $240.
"Having our own system
will not only improve the
sound at the meetings, but it'll
also eliminate the headaches of
working with a different
system each time and making
sure it's set up properly," said
Knight. "(Stuckey) has been
super in helping us out, but
he's running a business...
Owning our own system is the-
way to go."
Any business or a private
individual who would like .t
make a contribution to a
worthwhile' cause should
contact Knight at 904-782-
3765 or 904-782-3291 or via
e-mail at cowboychurchof
lawtey@yahoo.com.
All contributions are tax
deductible through the
Fellowship of Christian
Cowboys, of which the Lawtey
church is a member.
The Cowboy Church
specializes in down-home
services Where some of those
in attendance often wear blue
jeans, boots and Stetson hats,,
Meetings 'arie'" feld .,qn
weekdays "because the
weekends of many horse and
farm people are extremely
busy. The Lawtey church has.
been in existence for a short
time and has church on the
second Tuesday of each
month. Bible study is on the
fourth Tuesday.
The church is also planning
a number of community
service events.

Special music for next
.service...
The next Cowboy Church


meeting will be Tuesday. April.
12, at 7 p.m.
Services include special
music and a message. The
April 12 meeting will include a
special musical presentation by
Mary Kilroy. She's a horse
enthusiast and a very talented
musician. Come listen to the
pickin' and singing .
Bible study will be held with
Lamon Willis on Tuesday,
March 22, at 7 p.m, also at the
Bay Tack and Feed Store in

The Bradford County School
Board turned away from the

because of rising construction
costs. The lowest bid received
for, permanent construction
nearly topped the $2.2 million
allocated for the project and did
not include important elements
like furniture and covered

Also. re-elected were
Chairman David Pope of
Alachua arid Secretary-
Treasurer Dr. C. Linden
Davidson of Lamont.
All three members were
appointed by Governor Jeb
Bush.


Each classroom will have 960
square feet of instructional
space. In addition, there will be
shared space within view of the
main classrooms for students
who need assistance in specific
areas of study. Southside
teachers favored this design
because it will allow them to
further the use of an inclusive
teaching method that strives to
reduce the stigma experienced
by students who need
specialized instruction.
The board approved the
project during a special meeting
on March 10. The concrete
portables will be acquired from
Royal Modular of Palm Beach.
Behind the scenes
discussions on land purchases, a
new apartment development
and the potential for new
housing developments all point
to the fact that the school board
will need to continue addressing
expansion at the growing
school.

He said he hears about
cancer patients who have been
healed or had their lives
extended by the results of
research.. "I we can raise
another few thousand dollars
that can lead to one doctor
finding one thi-g that will cure
one more person, then I feel
really' / rond l hout what we're
doing. Thai makes it all
worilihwhile," said Foster.
.a,,,: the relay...
The cveni will be held
Friday and Saturday, April 15-
16. and has been named
"Relay f or Life, Destination: A
Cure".
A total of 34 teams signed
up last year for the 18-hour
event at the Bradford
fr.; i_, ...1 I and teams are still
signing up for this year's
event. Teams can consist of
any number of people. Only


one person is actually traveling
over the course at one time and
he or she can switch with
another team member at any
time. Speed is not the object,
team members can walk at any
rate they wish.
Team members get pledges
from 'individuals, businesses,
etc. Those pledges are donated
to the American Cancer
Society. A portion is used for
research, but most of the funds
go directly into programs that
help Bradford and Union
victims.
Foster and other organizers
are looking for additional
teams to participate, but they
are also seeking cancer
survivors to take part in a
special ceremony that will kick
off the relay.
Survivors who are able to
will walk around the track
during the opening lap at 6


p.m. on Friday. April 15.
Survivors who participL e will
also be given a complimrnw~a
T-shirt.
In order to register fqr the
survivors' ceremony and
reception, contact JefJces at
888-295-6787, ext. 120,.-
If you would like to be:a part
of- the eent, but can't
participate in the relay, you
can order a luminaria. Large
numbers of decorated bags,
each of which will contain a
candle, will be part of a
touching ceremony that begins
at dark on April 15 .
Each bag will be inscribed in
honor of a cancer survivor or
in memory of a person who
succumbed to cancer. A small
monetary donation -will be
asked in exchange for each
luminaria. The money will be
donated to the funds earned by
the relay.

News from Bradford County, Union County and the Lake Region area




Knickerbocker sentenced to life for 1989 slaying of teen


By MARCIA MILLER
Telegraph Staff Writer

Michael C. Knickerbocker,
39, on March 10 pled no
contest to a charge of murder
in the first degree as a result of
.a plea bargain that will keep
the state from seeking the
death penalty.


Meghan Renaud

Knickerbocker was charged
with murder in the 1989
slaying of Meghan Renaud, a
Bradford County teenager who
was apparently abducted from
her home and then shot in the
head and left in the woods
nearby .....
By pleading no contest,
Knickerbocker agreed to
accept a sentence of life
imprisonment with a minimum
mandatory service of 25 years
in the- Department of
Corrections. That sentence will
begin after he finishes serving
another life sentence with a
minimum mandatory 25 years
included for several rapes
for which he was convicted in
Alachua-County.
Knickerbocker will be at
least 74 years old before he
can even be considered for
parole and State Attorney
Bill Cervone said he believes
there is little chance
Knickerbocker will receive
parole at that time. "He will
never get out," said Cervone.
"We only agreed to
negotiate and elected not to
seek the death penalty after
consulting with the (Renaud)
family," said Cervone.
"Closure is more important to..
them than seeking the death
penalty. Now they have-.-
:closure in something that has
been a burden for them for
almost exactly 16 years."
He said he believes the idea
of waiting another 25-plus
years to find out if
Knickerbocker is executed or
not would have simply
Prolonged the -agony for the
family.
Chief Assistant Public
Defender Johnny Kearns,
representing Kfiickerbocker,
said his client sought the plea
bargain in an effort to spare the
Renaud family and his own
family the trauma of a drawn-
out trail. Reading a statement
- issued -by Knickerbocker,
Kearns said the defendant
"knows there is nothing he can
say or do that can undo what
-has been done". Kearns also
said Knickerbocker asked
forgiveness of the Renaud
family and of God.
Knickerbocker, with his
hands manacled at his waist,
stood beside Kearns during the
proceedings, but declined, to
'speak except to answer direct
questions put to him by Circuit
Court Judge David Giant..
Assistant State Attorney
Margaret Stack, who has been
working on this case since
1992, said Knickerbocker was
a suspect in the case all along.
Early on, ballistics information
indicated bullets recovered
from the Knickerbocker family
home "were consistent" with
the type of bullet used to kill
Renaud.
Cervone said that since this
type of match meant that the
bullets used to kill Renaud also
matched thousands of other
bullets, this information alone
was not enough -to cause the
state attorney to charge
Knickerbocker with the crime.
"At the time, we had no
evidence that put the gun into
Knickerbocker's hands, but he
has always been on the suspect
list," said Cervone.
Stack said the final piece of
evidence came about because.-'


oLadvances in DNA testing
technology -tat--made--
mitochondrial DNA testing
possible.


A hair that was recovered
from Renaud's body at the
time of her death was not hers
and was believed to belong to


her killer. However, the
amount of DNA available to
be tested was not sufficient to
get a match with anyone.


Mitochondrial DNA testing
makes it possible to get a
positive match with very small
amounts of DNA available for


testing.

Here's some advice from the
deck experts at Wolman Wood
Care Products:
Step 1: Clean & Restore:
Before you apply a protective
finish or color, dirt and gray
weathered wood should be
cleaned away with an acid-free,
biodegradable deck cleaner, like
Wolman DeckBrite Wood
Cleaner & Coating Prep.
DeckBrite is tough on
ground-in dirt, mildew and
algae stains, yet it's gentle so it
won't harm grass, plants or
shrubs.
Simply mix the powder
concentrate with water, spray
on, brush and rinse off with a
garden hose. The fast-acting
foaming action loosens and lifts
dirt, stains and iveathered-gray
discoloration in 10 minutes or
less. Unlike chlorine bleach,
which can degrade.the structure.


of the wood, DeckBrite's
oxygen-activated formula
cleans and restores the wood to
its original, like-new look
without whitening or damaging
the wood surface.
Step'2: Beautify & Protect:
Once you've cleaned and
prepared the deck surface, add
color and protection in one easy
step by applying a wood stain
that offers superior durability,
color longevity and maximum
protection against all weather
and climate conditions, such as
Wolman DuraStain.
Rated the best semi-
transparent wood stain for
"wood worth showing off,"
DuraStain provides a richly
pigmented, matte finish that
resists fading and offers longer-
lasting color and superior UV
protection:
It's easy to apply by brush,


pad or airless sprayer and just
one coat of the quick-drying,
water-based formula provides
excellent coverage, offering
great value for recoating and
revitalizing wood.
DuraStain is guaranteed to
prevent UV graying and water
damage, and resist peeling and
blistering and maintain the
beauty of the wood for three
years.


Since DuraStain is available
in six tintable premix colors
yielding 16 custom tints, it's
easier to achieve any look you
desire.

Hampton Marshal John Hodges surveys the burned-out hulk of what was once his house.


Hampton marshal: House fire was

meant as tactic of intimidation


By MARCIA MILLER
Telegraph Staff Writer
An early-morning fire .on
CR-221 in Hampton March 10
has been ruled arson, and the
home owvier, Hampton
Marshal John Hodges, said he
believes the fire was set to
intimidate him into backing
out of an investigation.
Detective David Cheers of
the State Fire Marshal's Office
said the fire is still under
investigation, but it has been
determined to have been
started by an arsonist. A
reward of up to $2,500 is being
offre, Eoy,, the florid.d
Advisory Committee on Arson
Prevention to anyone who
provides information that leads
to an arrest in the case.
Anyone with information
should call 1-877-NOARSON
(662-7766).
Hodges said he has been
cooperating with the FBI, the
Florida Department of Law
Enforcement and the Bureau of
Alcohol, Tobacco and
Firearms in an investigation
that is drug-related.
Jeff Westcott, an agent in
the FBI's Jacksonville office,


said he could confirm that FBI
agents are involved in the fire
investigation along with the
fire marshal's office, but said
he could divulge no
information other than that at
this time.
Hodges said he owns the
house in Hampton, but that he
and his wife sleep most of the
time at a house his wife owns
in Lawtey. No family member
was present at the house when
the fire started and no one was
injured.
"I'm at the (Hampton) house
every day. I had a lot of
equipment, tools and
belongings in the house," said
Hodges. "I still had mo office
there and did my book work
there."
Hodges is marshal for
Hampton, but also owns and
runs a home renovation
business. He estimates that
equipment related to that
business and to his position as
marshal equipment that was
destroyed in the fire was
valued at about $15,000. The
furniture and other contents of
the house, he valued at about
$15,000. The house itself,
which was a total loss, was
worth about $50,000. Hodges

had no insurance.
A neighbor of the Hampton
house called 911 at about 5:45
a.m. March 10, said Hodges.
Firefighters responding to the
fire had the additional problem


of dodging rounds of
ammunition that were cooking
off in the heat. Hodges' law
enforcement and personal
weapons were also stored in
the house.


"Everything I work with
except what was actually on
my truck was destroyed," said
Hodges.
Firefighters brought the fire
under control fairly quickly
and stayed at the scene until
well after noon to ensure all
the hot spots were out. "I can't
say enough good things about
the Hampton Volunteer Fire
Department," said Hodges.
When asked if he had any
idea why someone would
target his house, Hodges said
he felt the fire was set in an
effort to get him to back down
from the federal investigation
he is participating in.
"I think this is a direct
retaliation against me in an
effort to try to keep me from
doing my job," said Hodges.
"It's an intimidation thing."
Although declining to relate
any details about the
investigation, he said that he
had no intention of backing
down. "If a hoss throws you,

and ride," he said. "No one is
going to stop me from doing
what I am supposed to be
doing."
Hodges first became marshal
of Hampton in 1982. After
three years as marshal, he
joined the Starke Police
Department for a little more .1
than three years and then :
returned -to Hampton. as '>
marshal. He has held that '
position since that time. ia
Hodges said that while he i
feels certain criminal elements 2
are seeking to intimidate him, '
most of the residents of
Hampton have been very 3
supportive.
"The people of Hampton are
very upset about this. I've had l
people I have put in jail come o
to me and say 'What they did d
to you was wrong,'" said
Hodges. He said that people d

Stearns presents Starke with $300,000

.,'I

Representative Cliff Stearns' March 12 visit to Bradford County offered him the
opportunity to present the city of Starke with a $300,000 federal appropriation for
its ongoing sewer rehabilitation project funds which he helped to obtain.
SPictured (I-r) are Starke Commissioner Steve Futch, Mayor Carolyn Spooner,
Commissioner Larry Davis, City Clerk Linda Johns, Commissioner Don Tilley, City
Manager Ken Sauer and Rep. Stearns. Starke is not New York City, Stearns said,
but given the number of people who ask for money each year, it's nice to help a
small community because it is better appreciated and the money goes further.
"This is a small amount of money in the big scheme of things, but a big amount of
money for Starke," Stearns said. Stearns spent the remainder of the hour
discussing matters of importance to citizens, including social security reform,
prescription drugs and right-to-life issues.


Carson, Colo.
Jonathan said since he has
been in law enforcement
himself for the past 10 years,,
he knows how hard it is to
bring closure to a case this old.
"I know there are a lot of
cases that just don't get
solved," he said. The Renaud
family truly appreciates' the
hard work done in solving this
case, he said.
Jonathan was 16 at the time
of. Meghan's death and said
her murder placed an indelible
mark on every member of the
family. "I can't even begin to
describe the affect this has had
(on the family)," he said.
Jonathan said the family
feels the outcome of the trail
"was the "absolute best we
could have hoped for. He's
(Knickerbocker's) not going to
get out of jail. That doesn't
change what happened 16
years ago, but at least it ends
here."
He said that years after the
family had resigned itself to
:,the belief.that the case. -ould.,
just never be resolved, the
knowledge that Knickerbocker
has been charged and will
serve time for it cameras a
relief.
He commended the Florida
Department of Law
Enforcement, the state
attorney's office and every
other law enforcement officer
involved in the case. He gave a
special thanks to Stack for her
perseverance. "(She); never let
this go," he said.
When Stack was asked how
she felt about the outcome of
the hearing March 10, she said,
"It feels great. I'm just so glad
we can-finally write 'closed'
on this file."

advance in DNA testing that
allowed investigators to get a
positive match between the
hair and Knickerbocker.
"The hair was tested
repeatedly through the years,
but it has only been.recently
that DNA testing has grown
sophisticated enough to
provide a match," said
Cervone.
On March 19 or 20 in 1989,
Renaud was removed from her
home and found dead in a
clearing nearby a few days
later. She was killed with a .22
caliber handgun. A .22 caliber
gun was owned by
Knickerbocker's family and
was recovered from their
home. The Knickerbockers
lived near the Renauds at the
time.
The barrel of the recovered
gun was damaged, so a
positive ballistics match

bullets was not' possible.' A
match between the type of
bullet used to kill Renaud and
bullets found at the
Knickerbocker home was
made, but that match was not
absolute.
Knickerbocker has been in
prison on other charges since
shortly after Renaud's death.
The case became a cold
case, but Stack brought it back
to the front burner in 1992 and
the body was even exhumed in
1994 in an effort to'obtain
more evidence.
Stack has been in contact
with the Renaud family
through the years, especially
with Meghan's brother,
Jonathan. Jonathan Renaud is a

Demand for public information is surging


By CHUCK MCCUTCHEON :
2005 Newhouse News Service
Washington-At a time when critics accuse the fed-
eral government of excessive secrecy, the public's
appetite for information is growing by leaps and
bounds.
Hits on government Web sites are soaring.
Document requests under the Freedom of Information
Act, or FOIA, have hit all-time highs. And online
archives collecting everything from court decisions to
spies' names are seeing vast growth in numbers of vis-
itors.
All those developments, say advocates of greater
governmental openness, show that their cause
deserves more support.
"It's a huge irony that while the public is'filing more
FOIA requests, this administration is developing a
reputation as one of the most secretive governments
we've had in history," said Rick Blum, coordinator of
the Web-based coalition OpenTheGovernment.org.
The Justice Departient's Office of Information and
Privacy said in a report last August that federal agen-
cies received a record 3.26 million requests under the
Freedom of Information Act in fiscal 2003, the most
recent year available. That was a 36 percent increase
over 2002, the highest one-year jump ever.
About half the increase was due to people seeking
access to personal and family records from the Social
Security Administration, often for genealogical
research, said agency spokesman Mark Hinkle. The
departments of Veterans Affairs and Homeland
Security also saw large numbers of requests.
According to Nielsen//NetRatings, an Internet audi-
ence measurement service, several of the govern-
ment's most heavily used Web sites recorded higher
levels in January 2005 than in the same month a year
earlier.
/// //


Among the most popular was the Department of
Health and Human Services site, which served nearly
12 million visitors in January-a 24 percent increase
from 2004. Other government sites with fast-growing
traffic included the departments of Homeland Security
(54 percent more visitors), Agriculture (43 percent)
and Housing and Urban Development (41 percent).
The U.S. Government Printing Office's Web site,
gpoaccess.gov, averaged nearly 34 million retrievals
of government documents per month in 2004-a mil-
lion more than in 2003 and almost triple the number in
1998, according to agency figures.
One avid visitor to various sites is Mark Pruner,
president of Web Counsel, a Stamford, Conn., legal
marketing services company.
"I check Commerce, Census, and Bureau of
Economic Analysis sites for commercial information,
which is great for providing info for business and mar-
keting plans," Pruner said. "I check the NASA sites for
stuff like the Mars and Saturn missions. I look at the
(Library of Congress') THOMAS site for statutes and
bills, congressional sites for hearings, committee
assignments and e-mail addresses and the (Energy
Department) and (Computer Emergency Readiness
Team) sites for info on viruses."
The popularity of the federal sites can be explained
at least in part b;y the Internet's emergence as an easy-
to-use information resource. But watchdog groups and
others who specialize in collecting documents said
there also is more interest in their activities.
Subscriptions to the Federation of American
Scientists' Secrecy News, a free e-mail bulletin with
links to hard-to-find documents on defense, intelli-
gence and other ,sues (fas.org; click on "Government
Secrecy"), have grown to more than 10,000 from an
initial 200 four years ago.

growth," said Steven Aftergood, who ___
issues the bulletin. "I don't put peo-
ple on the mailing list until they've
asked. So it's a barometer of public
interest."
Private Web sites featuring exclu-
sive materials obtained via govern-
ment leaks or other unofficial chan-
nels also are seeing more visitors. -r
Among the best known are the 'YOUI
Smoking "Gun
(thesmokinggun.com), which col-
lects court documents, arrest photographs and other
information about public figures; the Memory Hole
(thememoryhole.org), which has put up photos of
flag-draped coffins of soldiers killed in. Iraq; and
Cryptome (cryptome.org), a catch-all archive that
once posted details of a secret CIA briefing .that
included the name and telephone number of the offi-
cial who gave it.
Cryptome administrator John Young, a New York
architect, said his site drew 50,000 hits a day before
the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. Since then, he said, that
number has grown to 150,000.
"People don't think they're getting reliable informa-
tion out of the government, and they're eager to find a
source of information that offsets what is being with-
held," Young said.
The Bush administration denies being overly secre-
tive.
"It's an unfair perception; it's not
the way I view our approach," Vice Gover
President Dick Cheney said at an
American Society of Newspaper Federal secret
Editors conference in 2003, citing commissions'
the decision to allow embedded.
reporters to travel with troops in IN MILLIONS
Iraq as evidence of "our commit-
ment to the free flow of informa- 200
tion."
President Bush in 2002 signed
into law the E-Government Act, 150
which required federal agencies to
work on making more government
information accessible over the 100
Internet. A report by Congress'
Government Accountability Office 69mil
in December said agencies have 50
made "positive steps" toward imple-
menting.key provisions, but have 3 m,
failed to carry out some others. 0
"The agencies are doing a good FY95
job of trying to put out informa-
tion," said Peter Hernon, founding
editor of Government Information Federal Sl
Quarterly, an academic journal.
"Yes, there are areas where U Spending
there's a decline," said Hernon, a making cl
library and information science pro- Informati
fessor at Boston's Simmons
College. "But the ultimate question IN BILLIONS
that nobody has answered is,
'What's the proper balance between $3.4 $3.6
open access and legitimate securi-
ty?' Nobody's related that proper
balance to e-government."
Some activists say the Bush
administration is not entirely to

R RIGHT TO KNOW
Congress.
House Administration Committee Chairman Bob
Ney (R-Ohio) and other lawmakers who favor restrict-
ing availability of the reports maintain that while the
service is publicly financed, its mission is to provide
information to Congress and not the public. They say
making all reports public could inhibit lawmakers who
want to learn more about sensitive topics.
Anti-secrecy activists reject such arguments.
"The dominant trend in the government is to
increase controls on what had previously been public
information," said Aftergood, who includes links to
Congressional Research Service reports in Secrecy
News. "That's a troubling trend, because what it does
is lower people's expectations for what kind of infor-
mation they can obtain. We'd like to raise people's
expectations."

Telling your sweet stories too,
Though three years.

Your legacy is burning true.

Dress up your
home with
blinds
(NAPSA)-Window
treatments are an easy and often
overlooked way to update a
home's d6cor. For instance,
vood blinds can add a beautiful
touch of warmth to almost
every room.- Versatile and
natural, they go with almost any
style or color.
Following are some tips to
choose the best custom blinds
for your home from the experts
at Levolor, a leading
manufacturer of blinds and
shades.
Try cellular shades that
come in a variety of colors and
cell sizes to match your d6cor.
Add a fabric valance on [top to
complete your look. Cellular
shades are available in cordless.
:Choose three-inch i wood
blinds for a polished, unique
look in rooms. The wider slats
allow in more light, bgt can
close tightly for total privacy.
Vertical blinds create a
focal point and add heigat-an


excellent way to visually reduce
a particularly large or. wide
room.
Bring the outside in. Woven
wood shades made with a
variety of reeds and bamboo
can give an exotic appearance
to any room.
Faux wood blinds work
great in bathrooms and
kitchens. They resist warping in
high moisture areas.
No time to wait for custom
blinds? Try Levolor's new
Custom Size Now Cordless
Faux Wood blinds. Raising the
blinds is as simple as a push of
a button and gently lifting the
bottombar. By eliminating
cords, these blinds offer a safer
option for children and pets and
can be sized immediately for
your windows in select stores.

Strawberry golf tournament is set for April 2-3


By BUSTER RAHN
BCT Correspondent

The Starke Golf Club will
host its 39t" consecutive
Strawberry Golf Tournament
Saturday and Sunday, April 2-
3, with a field of 80 golfers,
drawn from Northeast Florida.
The first players will tee off
at 8 a.m.
It is expected to be a fine
golf outing, with a good field
of players, a skins game within
the game and very fine prizes
for the lucky winners. The
course promises to be in the
finest condition ever se-en in-
the long-running tournament,
with the greens in prime
condition.
The fairways can use some
warm weather on the Bermuda


to cover some bare spots, but
the two-week interval may do
wonders in filling in the
denuded areas. Club Manager
Paul Illgen has done an
outstanding-job-in cleaningup


and fixing up the course.
Players of the Starke Golf
course are aware that it is an
excellent layout of testy
fairways and intimidating
water hazards, with the course


record 62 having been shot
three times in its 39-year
history twice by former
professional Bill Adams and
once by club pro David Elder.
The tournament field will be


divided into a championship
and four handicap flights, with
winners in each flight winning
a set of Titleist irons, retailing
for $699. Second-place
winners in each flight will win


a new Titleist driver, a $350
value, and third-place winners
will win a Titleist wedge,
retailing for $99. Titleist

3 Bradford

girls find

success in

show ring

By CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer

A pair of Bradford County
sisters put on quite a show at
the 2005 'Florida State Fair,
where they displayed a pair of
grand champions and a pair-of
reserve grand champions in the
Brahman cattle category.
Ashley Waters, a 17-year-old
Bradford High School student,
showed the grand champ bull
and grand champ female. Her
13-,year-old sister, Amber
Waters, a -Bradford Middle
School student, showed the
reserve grand champ bull and
reserve grand champ female.
It was the second year the
sisters had participated in the
Florida State Fair.
"We expected we might get a
class win, maybe two," Ashley
said. "I never thought, with us
being sisters, that we would get
grand and reserve with the
heiffers and the bulls."
Ashley also placed second in
senior showmanship, which she
admitted she thought was pretty
good, considering she was in a
group of 75 (Amber was first in
intermediate showmanship at
last year's fair).
Actually, it was a good
showing-for three sisters, so to
speak. Vanessa Green, a 17-
year-old Bradford High School
student, showed the senior
division champion heiffer and
bull. Ashley and Amber both
said Green is like a sister to
them.
Green, like both Amber and
Ashley, was participating in her
second Florida State Fair.
Ashley said the trio was
nervous at last year's fair just
because of the number of
people in attendance.
"We've gotten more
comfortable with it since we do
it a lot," Ashley said. "We go to
like 10 shows a year."
That includes not just shows
at 'he Bradford County Fair, but
Throughout the state and in
other states such as Georgia and
Alabama.

equipment is considered
among the best in the sport.
The skins game will pay an
estimated $70 per skin, based
on last year's experience. The
amount may be more, or less,
depending on the number of
skins won. To level the playing
field, there will be two skins
games, one for the
championship and low-
handicap flights and another
for the fourth and fifth flights.
Last year's winner of the
Strawberry Tournament was
Tatum Davis with a 75/70,
followed by Starke native
Richard Gaines, posting a
77/72, in the: championship
flight. Former pro Bill Adams
re will- continue to sit out the
tournament because of the

SMI Joist at work on Wal-Mart


By MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Staff Writer

Employees at SMI Joist in
Starke are currently hard at
work fabricating the support
structures for the three acres
worth of building that will
house the area's first Wal-Mart
Supercenter.
When the store opens later
this year, customers will simply
have to look up to see the yards
and yards of exposed steel
beams that were manufactured
locally.
But local workers aren't only
involved with local projects.
According to Plant
Superintendent Dewayne
Tyson, SMI Joist and its parent
company, Commercial Metals
Company, are Wal-Mart's sole
source for the steel joists and
girders that comprise its
buildings in the United States,
and some overseas buildings as
well, including supercenters and
Sam's Clubs. That makes Wal-
Mart the plant's largest national,
client, an account they've had
for a number of years.


"Most people in this
community think we make steel
out here," Tyson said. "We
don't make steel. Steel is our
biggest inventory. We've got a
little over 6,000 tons of raw
material now. But what we
take is angle and round bar.and
we process it and we turn it into
joists, which are roof supports.
Girders are the primary
members. They span from
column to column, and then the
joists bear on them at the panel
points. That's what makes up a
building."
Wal-Mart is an account the
manufacturer worked hard to
get and works hard to keep. It
all comes down to customer
service, Tyson said.
"They give customer service
and they want customer service,
and we feel like we service
them pretty well," he said.
They must be doing
something right, as they also
hold the national accounts for
Costco and Auto Zone, and
their agreement with Home
Depot was just extended for an
additional year. But given the
number of new stores opened
each year, Tyson said between
65 and 70 percent of the work
they do is for Wal-Mart.
SMI is--responsible for
pumping more than $7 million
worth of annual revenue into
Bradford County, including
salaries, taxes, etc.. The Starke
supercenter project alone is
worth more than $250,000 to
SMI Joist, but even that is just a
fraction of the plant's total
annual sales.
SMI is scheduled to deliver
the final product for the
supercenter on April 6 and 7.
"We're proud to be building
something that's going to be an
icon and .have such an
economic impact on the
community, because we support
oqr community," Tyson said,
mentioning the plant's


volunteer work and charitable
contributions. They've also
racked up more than a few
awards for their annual entries
in the Starke Christmas Parade.
"One thing we've always
tried to show is that we're not
only a family here, we're a
family in our community, to our
neighbors and friends," said
Tyson, himself a Bradford
County native.
SMI management and the
employees are perhaps most
proud of their safety record.
Safety, Tyson said, is number
one. Of the 245 employees at
SMI, more than 200 of whom
are hands-on in the
manufacturing process,
accidents are few and very far
between. Tyson said the plant
is near two million man-hours
without an accident, which
makes it number one in safety


in the industry.
He said workers' 'can-do
attitudes have also made the
plant one of the most efficient
in the country.
"It's fun for me to come into
work, to know that I've got a
fine group of people to work
with, and they take care of
business," Tyson said.
The four other SMI Joist
locations are found in Arkansas,
Iowa, Nevada and South
Carolina. Commercial Metals
Company, which dates back to
1915, owns more than 100
plants around the country that
do everything from
manufacture steel to processing
scrap metal.

SHOW
Continued from p. 1C
Amber and Ashley have
grown up surrounded by cattle.
Their father, Harold Waters Jr.,
breeds the animals and he


encouraged them to participate
in the shows, Amber said.
Green, who had always been
surrounded by animals, too,
said she was encouraged to
participate in shows by Amber
and Ashley.
"When they started showing,


they asked if I would like to
show," Green said. "I did. It's
fun and I really like it."
It's fun now, but Green
admitted her first show did not
go well. Her animal lay down in
the ring, it drug her around the
ring and it mashed her into the

wanted to do another-show after
that experience, but p3reen said
she gave it some thought and
realized that both slie and her
animal were newconriers to the
show ring.
"I wasn't really su:rOf of what I
was doing and she w.as really
scared with the louli noises,"
Green said.
Other than getting used to
working with an anir!al in such
a setting, the girls had to' get
used to being in fiont of an
audience. That was r6ot difficult
for Amber.
"I don't do that had around
people," she said. ''You just
take your mind off t,'e audience

It wasn't that hard! for me,

Being surrounded by the

Being around the !Brahmans
is not intimidating it any way

Jolley

delivers for
KHHS in win

By CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
Trae Jolley drove in the
winning run for the Keystone
Heights baseball team in the
eighth inning of a 5-4 win over
visiting Middleburg on March
14.
Keystone (5-3 prior to March
15) loaded the bases prior to
Jolley's game winner. Tyler
Richardson drew a walk and
Wil Breton bunted safely. Each
runner advanced on Blake
Lott's sacrifice before. Miehael
Comeau was intentionally
walked.
Lott and Breton each hit a
double for the Indians, who-
played District 4-3 opponent
Interlachen on Tuesday.
Keystone head coach Alan
Mattox said Lott "threw a gem"
of a game, but the decision
went to reliever Anthony
Giurate (1-0).
The win followed a week in
whichh the Indians went 1-2.
On Tuesday, March 8,
Keystorne was defeated 10-2 by
Or:rng': Parlk Ridgeview.
Mattox said his team made
some uncharacteristic mistakes
in that ,arne and "just left too
many guys on base."
Getting on base was a
problem for the Jndian, in a 3-0
loss to district opponent Fort
White on March 10 in
Keystone,
Fort White pitcher Dusty
Parrish allowed just four hits
and two walks, while striking
out seven.
All three Fort White runs
occurred in the fourth inning, in
which only one ball left the
infield. The Indians failed to
make a play on a pop-up bunt
that could've been a double
play, Mattox said.
Keystone would bounce back
from those two losses with a 7-
0 win over visiting Buchholz on
March 11.
Comeau (2-0) pitched a
complete game, allowing four
hits. He also had two doubles at
the plate to help his cause,
while Lott also had two hits.
The defense behind Comeau
was solid, as well, turning a key
double play at one point,


Mattox said.
Keystone will host district
opponent Bradford on Friday,
March 18, then travel to Lake


Butler to play district opponent
Union County on Tuesday,
March 22. Both games are
scheduled for 7 p.m.

Crusaders

By CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer

SIt was quite a battle between
the teams' pitchers, but it was
Bishop Kenny's Megan
Naughton who got the win as
the visiting Crusaders defeated
Kasey Barrett and Bradford 1-0
on March 11.
Each pitcher struck out 12
batters and gave up just three
hits, but Naughton also helped
her cause by hitting a double in
the fourth inning that drove in
the game's lone run.
Ashley Lee, Bradford's lead-
off hitter, -reached base in the
first inning when she singled,
but a double play turned by
Bishop Kenny on a pop-up bunt
killed the potential scoring
opportunity.
In the seventh inning,
Courtney Cummings led off
with a single, but the Crusaders
later pulled off another double
play.
Bradford head coach Jeremy
McFadyen said Barrett (4-3)
pitched well enough to win and
for her efforts last week, she
was named.the team's defensive
player of the week. She went 1-
1 last week, pitching 12 innings
and allowing four hits. She
struck out 23 batters.
Lee and Amanda Reed were
co-offensive players of the
week. Each player went 4-for-9
in three games. Lee had a triple,
three RBI and a stolen base,
while Reed had two RBI and
four stolen bases. Each player

Stories from the outdoors in Clay,
Bradford and Union counties.


A Nike turkey


By JOHN WHITFIELD
Contributing Outdoors Editor

A turkey wearing Nike tennis shoes? Or
was it track shoes? Or simply one of the best
barefoot runs for the money in the woods?
Ask Bruce Strube, local hunter, fisherman
and member of The Sportsman's Club. I
have heard Strube tell his version of this
story a dozen times and I still get him to tell
it whenever we are around someone new.
Although Strube was alone on this hunt, I
can easily visualize what happened.
Strube is a very large man almost six,
feet, six inches tall and more than 200
pounds (I'm not allowed to get too specific
here) and a real outdoorsman. He is skilled
in anything outdoors and has the best vision
of any hunter I have -ever met, 20-15 or
better, in both eyes. In fact, in my opinion,
Strube and a wild turkey may be just about
equal in vision at 100 yards. Now, if Strube
could just run a little faster.
On this particular hunt, Strube relates that
he heard a bird in the distance and he quickly
set up a few palmetto fronds backing up to a
large tree and commenced his effort to call
the bird in.
Now, Strube is an excellent caller and -he
soon had that big ole Tom strutting and
cutting and drumming his way over to
Strube's location.
As the bird got into range, it became more
cautious and wary, since it couldn't locate
the hen it ,had heard over in the bushes
(Strube.) Just a few more steps and the bird
would be in a clearing, about 25 yards out. A
perfect spot. Patience. Waiting.- More
waiting. A soft cluck.
Show time
The Tom just couldn't stand it any longer
and it strutted right out into the opening and
started up his best John Travolta dance he
puffed out all his glossy feathers, swelled up
like a helium balloon and began dipping his
wings, turning, cutting, drumming and
spitting. He was putting on one fine show.
After doing all- his showing off, the bird
dropped his feathers and stretched out his
head and neck for a long, curious look. Pow.
Strube got him with a 12-gauge pump..
The bird rolled over and the show was
over. Or, shall we say, Act I was over..
Noticing that the bird wasn't moving,
Strube jumped up and ran over to collect his
harvest. However, in his excitement, he had
left his shotgun at the tree and'guess what?
That bird wasn't done.
Get ready, get set
Apparently just temporarily knocked out,
the bird jumped up at just about the time that
Strube leaned over to grab the legs.
Kazoom that bird took off. like the
proverbial scalded cat with a jump start that
would make any Olympian drool.
Strube did a quick glance back at the gun
and made one of those life or death
instantaneous decisions go after.the bird.
Now!
No, the bird wasn't 100 percent. He was
about 25 percent. Apparently Strube's
pattern had taken out the wings and slowed
the bird down considerably, to warp one.
But, the race was on.
The turkey was running as fast as it could
go, with Strube right behind it and the bird
