unwind was more than called
for. Hence Senior Fun Day,
when the Class of 2005,
including Ciera Lemire,
Whitney Tanner and Kristy

little messy. They may have
been seniors, but their

sophomoric. At left, emotions

developer
By MARK J7CRAWFORD
Telegraph Staff Writer
On May 19, North Florida
Regional Chamber of
Commerce President Ron Lilly
introduced the county's
Tourism Development Council
to Danny Gaekwad, a hotel
developer who may hold the
key to making the council's
dream of a convention center a
reality.
Previously, the council was
- working-withJhi YMCA to
develop a multiuse center that
could serve recreational and
convention purposes, but the
two organizations are now
moving in different directions.
TDC now hopes the convention
center can be part of a new hotel
development that would
provide on-site sleeping
accommodations as well as an
on-site restaurant.
According to Lilly, Gaekwad
is only one of a handful of hotel
developers that, have been
looking at property with an eye
toward positioning their hotels
around a new conference center.
Among the information
.drawing enthusiastic responses
from TDC, Gaekwad told
council members he could bring
whatever hotel franchise they
wanted to see to Starke.
Gaekwad isn't really new to
Starke. He once owned
convenience stores in the area,
but has since moved into hotel
development. He lives in Ocala

STORM
Continued from p. 1A
all Floridians, received more
than $4 billion in federal
assistance.
Fortunately, there were no
local casualties, but structures
were damaged, roads washed
out, and some went without
power or running water for
weeks.
While information can't
prevent a storm, it can help
prepare businesses and
residents for the worst. The
cover of the hurricane insert
lists the local hurricane shelters
that could be activated in the
event weather becomes bad.
Among those is Southside
Elementary, the shelter set aside
for individuals with special
needs-particularly those with
medical conditions that
necessitate the use of
electricity. June Neats, the
county's emergency
preparedness planner, said
individuals with special needs
must be preregistered with the
emergency management office.
A doctor or home health agency
can register a special needs
individual, or the individual can
register themselves by calling
the office at (904) 966-6336
and requesting a form, she said.
The form can also be
obtained online at
www.bradford-'co-fla.org. Just
click on county departments,
then emergency management
and go down the page to
download the form. Eligibility
requirements are given online,
as is a list of items special
needs individuals may need to
take to the shelter with them.
The front page of the
brochure also charts multiple
evacuation routes, proving
there's more than one way in
and out of Bradford County
than 301.
Inside the hurricane map
insert is a list of items anyone
who is housed at a shelter
should bring along, as well as a
list of emergency supplies like
batteries and nonperishable
food everyone should stock up
on.
Among the important, tips is
information on protecting
homes and a reminder to keep
vehicles full of gasoline.
Individuals are also reminded to
keep cash on hand since power
outages could prevent
withdrawing funds in the hours
and daysifollowlng a itohn. ;
There are tips for what to do
during',-a-hurricane and after a
storm has passed, as well, and a
list of terms related to hurricane
weather that can help the public
understand just what is
happening when listening to
reports.
As for where to find those
reports, a list of local media
outlets is provided on the back
of the insert, as is a list of
important telephone numbers.
Neats said the department has
looked at the communication
problems experienced last year,
updated their information and
prepared to communicate more
effectively with the public this
time around.
By completely opening the

A production error resulted in
Taylor R. Van Allen's
photograph being left out of last
week's graduation edition.
Allen was a high honors
graduate, and we sincerely
apologize for the error..

Additionally, more than a
dozen students were pictured
but left out of the outstanding


bifold insert, readers can find a
hurricane tracking ,chart. By
plotting the date, time, latitude,
longitude, direction, speed and
other information provided
during weather reports,
individuals can track the
progress of a storm. This can be
particularly important when
radio reports are the only
reports available during a
storm.
Other pages included include
a checklist for a complete
hurricane evacuation kit and a
list of.things to beware in the
wake of the storm, like unsafe
water and food.
Additional brochures are
available at the emergency
management office and the
-Bradford County Public
Library.

Neats said the state is
offering sales tax relief on
hurricane supplies purchased
between Wednesday, June 1,
and Sunday, June 12.

HOTEL
Continued from p. 1A
and is currently building two
new hotels there, one at S.R.
200( and Interstate 75. Among
his other ventures is the
Country Inns and Suites he built
in that area two years ago and a
hotel in Pensacola. He worked
with a partner to build a
Holiday Inn in Lake City and is
currently looking at property to
develop in Live Oak.
The project budget for Ocala
is $21 million.
He said he prefers smaller
towns because the officials are
easier to work with and more
welcoming land is easier to
acquire.
Gaekwad pointed out that the
lack of hotel development in
this area over the last 15 to 20
years was an indicator of how
much tourism the area actually
receives. Tourists tend to spend
money in a particular way,
viewing hotels as a base for
their holiday activities. They
are drawn to the better deal. But
other hotels he has developed

subsist primarily on industry
traffic-the kind of traffic that
could be generated by a
convention center.
What is eventually built is in
the council's hands, Gaekwad
said.
"You guys are the heartbeat
of Starke, and you can tell us
whether we have demand. Do
we want to build 100 rooms?
Do we want to build 200 rooms,
or build 50 rooms?" he said,
adding that the cost of building
the hotel is the same from area
to area. All that differs from
one town to the next is the price
of the land.
The consensus of the TDC
members present was that a
facility with 50 rooms, a
multiuse convention center and
an on-site restaurant would best
suit Starke's needs. The
development should also
include a kitchen equipped for
large catered events, Gaekwad
said, such. as the weddings,
conventions and other events
TDC hopes accommodate.
As for how to locate the
money needed to fund a
combined hotel and convention
center development, Gaekwad

discussed the possibility that the
city and county could float a
bond and repay that bond with
revenue generated by the
convention center.
* "The bottom line is that we
all need to come as partners,"
he said. "I cannot alone do it.
You alone cannot do it."
This was just a first meeting
between the developer and
TDC, and nothing has officially
been decided. The council has
made an offer on land owned by
Rayonier and is waiting for a
.response, but Gaekwad said
there was no race to develop.
The longterm is what's
important, he said, including
how such a development could
improve the local economy over
the next 15 to 20 years.
Festival a success
April's Strawberry Festival
was not only a success, Lilly
said, but a large draw as well.
Saturday crowds were
estimated between 4,000 and
6,000 strong, and Sunday's
turnout was easily twice that, he
said. What's more, 80 percent
of those attending the festival
were from outside of Bradford

ACCOUNT
Continued from p. 1A
account into which is deposited
revenue generated by
.recreation's programs.
Bond trustees Jim Powell and
Millard Brown approached the
city commission May 17 with
concern over expenses for the
recreation department and
concern that the department
generates money through the
sale of supplies that the city
actually pays for.
"They've created a fund, I
call it a slush fund, that we feel
like any monies coming into
that department, particularly
based on what we've paid for
out of the city budget, that
money should come back-in
fact all money coming through
that city department should
come back through the city and
be accounted for, as opposed to
being in a separate account over
there," said Powell.
Because the recreation
director has authority to sign
checks covered with funds from
that account, Powell said there
were not enough safeguards in
place, and he and Brown didn't
feel the arrangement complied
with generally accepted
accounting procedures.
"Anything we pay for and
they generate funds back from
we feel like should come
through city hall and be
accounted for," Powell said,
adding that.he had no problem
with .the' money returning to
recreation to be spent with a
certain amount of discretion
once the funds had been
accounted'. for in the clerk's
finance office.
"We need to have some kind
of control," Brown said. "If
we're putting money in
something-I feel if I'm putting
money in something I want
know where it's going, what it's

being used for and how it's
coming back. The city should
have the same prerogative."
Brown said some of the bills
he's seen as a trustee he really
doesn't approve of, but he gives
his stamp of approval so the
city can pay them.
In addition to the lack of
financial oversight, Powell
criticized the amount that was
being spent on electric and
cellular phone service, saying
lights at the ball fields were
being left burning and hundreds
of calls are being documented
on the bills he sees. ,
I Having shared what he had
observed as a trustee, Powell
then said these were issues the
city commission needed to
address.
City Clerk Linda Johns said it
is a matter that has been
remarked upon by the city's
auditor in the past, although city
commissioners couldn't
remember the subject ever
coming up. City Manager Ken
Sauer told the board there was
about $105,000 in the
recreation account.
Commissioner Larry Davis said
the number was around, $47,000
as of April 5.
Commissioner Steve Futch
seemed surprised that much
revenue was being generated by
recreation, but. Commissioner
Carolyn Wimpy did not. It's all
profit, she said.
"That money they generate
should go back into supporting
their operation instead of just.
being there to spend at their
pleasure and letting city
taxpayers foot all of their bills,"
Powell said.
Recreation board Chairman
Pat Welch was contacted for
comment following the
meeting. He said the board is
subject to oversight by the city
commission and always has
been, but he said placing the
city clerk over ,recreation
finances was not in the best
interest of the department.
Welch said the department is
not using city funds to purchase
equipment, then reselling that
equipment and pocketing the
profit as was alleged.
"We make the money
through our programs, and
we've been good stewards of it.
We've built up some money,
and it gives us some
independence," Welch said. "If
we want to do something for the
kids in this community, and we
go to the.city and they say they
don't have the money, then we
.do and we go ahead and do it."'
Welch called the claim that
phone bills were too high
ridiculous, and he attributed'
high utility bills to growth in
recreation programs. With that
growth, expenses are going to
increase, he said.
"I don't. think there's much
substance to any of it," Welch
said. "I'm not sure exactly
where all of that's coming from,
because none of them came and
talked to me about it."
What Welch is doing now is
writing a letter to request that
those who do have questions
point out specific areas of
concern. Once he has that, he
said he will be happy to answer
those points one by one.
"We've tried to do the very
best we can with the recreation

department's money," said
Welch, who has .been on the.
board for 20 years. "We have
one interest, and that's our
kids."
The commission left the issue
to be addressed at another time,
once Sauer has met with the
department. City Attorney
Terry Brown said there was
nothing to prevent the
commission from imposing
additional measures to ensure
accountability. A later request
on the agenda for 'a donation to
help the recreation department
purchase a pool and Ping-Pong
table was passed over without
comment'by the board.

the ramming exercise where he
successfully broke through the

The rear quarter panel of the

This training-although
nontraditional-was aimed at
improving .their skills in the
event of a terrorist attack
against Florida's citizen-

In another exercise. the
soldiers sat in the front seat of a
car and fired pistols through the
windshield at targets beyond the
hood. After a few quick shots
and a spray of glass, they exited
the car and quickly ran behind
the car-firing all the while.
"Every day we're driving out

Course instructor Russ Adler

"It increases their confidence,

In a shiny 2005 Pontiac
Grand Am, Adler rain' the
National Guard contingent
through a number of driving
maneuvers like "bootleg turns,"
"J-turns" and high-speed
reverse driving.
"We teach them to think
outside the box," he said. "Just
because they are on a road
doesn't mean they. have to:stay
on the road. They can take
walkways or any means to
escape a potential terrorist
threat, attack or kidnapping."
He demonstrated a scenario
where a soldier driving a
general officer pulls up to a
terrorist roadblock and needs to
make a fast getaway: shift to
reverse, speed backward,' spin
the steering wheel to the left,
and halfway through the turn
shift quickly into drive, spin
back the wheel and accelerate.
It's a flawless 180-degree turn
that could save lives in the right
situation.
"They are taught to use their

but as a means to escape (a
threat) as well." he added.

Beware of check fraud


By MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Staff Writer

A local, family unwittingly
fell prey to a scam recently that
could have robbed the husband
and wife of more than $1,000
had an investigator not alerted
them to the theft.
Deborah Goldstein said she
and her husband purchased a
house in March. and with so
much money changing hands
during the process, they hadn't
noticed a check for more than
$1,400 that had been written by
an identity thief during a


shopping spree.
What's disturbing is that the
thief had not actually gotten his
hands on the Goldsteins check
book. What he did have was
their checking account number
and the bank's routing number
on a check of his own.
A detective from Castleberry
notified the couple.
"He said, 'I'm investigating a
fraud case, and I have found
your checking and routing
number on a piece of paper,'"
Goldstein said.
"(The detective) said most
.people never notice it."
She said she and her husband
didn't notice it themselves until


they went back through their
bank statements and uncovered
the extravagant, one-day
shopping spree.
"This guy printed these
checks out. All the checks said
South Carolina."
Fortunately, all of the checks,
were retuned to the stores as-
fraudulent and the Goldsteins1
were able to recover their
money.
Citizens are warned to keep a
close eye on their bank
accounts, keep regular tabs on
their bank balance and to report
any unauthorized activity to
local law enforcement.

Allstate chosen


to build library


State $ earmarked


By MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Staff Writer

The Bradford County
Commission followed through
with the recommendation of its
Library Advisory Board in
offering the job of constructing
the new public library to
Allstate Construction Inc. of
Tallahassee and Jacksonville.
Bill Weldon and his son,
Casey, are at the helm of
Allstate, a company that began
in the family's basement and
grew to accomplish projects
worth millions of dollars.
Among those projects was the
$800,000 media center built at
Southside Elementary in 2003.
It was completed on time and
on budget.
The county has not employed
the construction manager at risk
approach in its building projects
before, although the school
board has and the process came
highly recommended by Jim
Womack, the director of
facilities planning and
construction for Duval County
schools.
Construction manager at risk
is an alternative to the
traditional design-bid-build
method of building. The
construction manager at risk
process involves
prequalification and selection of
a construction manager during
the design phase, in this case
Allstate Construction. Allstate
will provide planning,
estimating, scheduling and
other consulting services to the
county and architects Spyros
Drivas and Jack Hedge during
the design phase.
When the design is near
completion, Allstate and the
county will negotiate a
guaranteed maximum price and
construction schedule for the
project. The construction
manager will then act as the
general contractor during the
construction of the project and
will prequalify and procure all
of the subcontractors for the
project.
,The county will only pay for
the cost of the work plus ana'
agreed fee for Allstate up to the
guaranteed maximum price.
The construction manager is
said to be at risk of incurring
additional costs through this
method and is that much more


for the project


Library Director Phalbe
Henriksen, having
envisioned this project for
years, is more than ready
for construction to begin
as she proved by donning
a pink construction helmet
when the county
commission voted to offer
a contract to Allstate.

motivated to bring a project in
on time and on budget.
The project manager for the
library will be Joe Nealon and
the superintendent overseeing
the construction site every day
will be Buddy Overby.
Allstate was competing with
M. M. Parrish Construction
Company .and W. G. Mills
Construction Managers for the
project. Library Advisory Board
Chairman Terry Vaughan said
all three were excellent firms
and the board could have done
well drawing one of the three
names out of a hat. In the end,
Allstate had built the leanest
profit margin based on the
project budget.
So long as it sur i%\es without
a gubernatorial \eto, Vaughan
said a $5001.000 (appropriation
has beer earmarked for the
prc'lect bN the siate legislature.

Former City Manager Lee
Vincent seems to -have left
Starke with ah unexpected
gift-a bill for around $20,000.
The expense is for
engineering work related to the
extensionn of water service to
Lakewood Subdivision on S.R.
100 west.
.City. Attorney Terry Brown
was directed to contact Vincent
about the bill and reported that
Vincent did indeed authorize
the expenditure, believing that
the city would save money by
hiring a third-party to conduct
the engineering work. Brown
said the decision Vincent made
was based on bills the city had
been receiving from its own
engineer of record.
Vincent told Brown his goal
was to bring the project in
under budget, and Brown said it
was his understanding that the
project will be completed on or
under budget.

Law enforcement a bloody business i.n Bradford


(TheJollowing is reprinted
with permission of the author
from "Bradford County: Its
History and Its People. ")
While any job in law
enforcement has the potential
to be deadly, being a sheriff
or deputy during Bradford'
County's early days often
proved fatal. Six sheriffs,
three deputies and two city:
marshals died attempting to
carry out their sworn duty*
during a 27-year period from
1885 to 1912.
Of the nine, sheriffs who
served during that violent
period of the county's history,
five were murdered in the
line of duty and a sixth died -
of bullets fired either by him-
self or an unknown party.
Three deputy sheriffs were
also killed in office, as were
one city marshal and one act-
ing night marshal.
The most perilous period of
all was a six-year span from'
1885 to 1891#vhen three out
of four sheriffs were killed
after completing only one or
two years of their terms-
two N\ere father and son, and
the third was a victim of the
notorious outlaw, Harmon
Murray.
Wash Epperson first of two
family members to die in
uniform
The story begins on Jan. 5,
1885, when George
Washington (Wash) Epperson,
of Lake Butler, took office as
the eighth 'sheriff to be elect-
ed after New River County
was renamed Bradford in.
1861. Eleven' months later,
the first Sheriff Epperson to
die in office was killed while
attempting to arrest a wanted
man who had fled this area
and "holed up"' in Valdosta,
Ga.
In spite of the protests of
his family, Henry (the son of
Wash) who had always
dreamed of being sheriff
some day, was named to
succeed his father in office.
He served out the unexpired
term and was reelected to a
full-year term in 1888. But
fate decreed, however, that he
was to meet the same tragic.
death as his -father. After'
serving one year of his new
term, he was killed while
attempting to arrest a notori-
ous gambler and desperado
who:boasted that he had
already killed two men in
south Florida.
Third on the list was D.L.
(Levy) Alvarez, a city.
marshal who had been
appointed to fill out4the unex-
pired sheriff's term of Henry
Epperson. Alvarez was killed
in a shootout between a local
posse and.the dreaded desper-
ado, Harmon Murray. The
lawmen had Murray trapped
in the home of a friend' of
Murray's just south of Starke. ,
It was a moonlit night in
1891 and the sheriff's white
shirt made an excellent target
for Murray and his, famed
Winchester rifle with
which he is believed to have
killed at least 12 people in a
wide-ranging area between.
Gainesville and Fernandina.
After the murder of three
sheriffs in the space of six
years, things were compara-
tively peaceful on the law
enforcement front for several
years. P.S. Crews was
appointed to serve out the
unexpired term of Sheriff
Alvarez without mishap, and
in the next regular election of
1892, Everett E. Johns, father
of the state senator, and form-
er acting governor, Charley
E. Johns, vas elected to take
over the hard-hit office and
served one term before being
defeated by S.B. Denmark,
who served from 1897


through 1900 without bodily
harm. Johns was reelected in
1900 for the, 1 .01 -1905 term
of office, serving a full four
years before being defeated
by J.P. (Joe) Bennett in the
election of 1904.
Former sheriff ambushed in
Nassau County
While Johns was not actu-


ally a sheriff here at the time
of his murder, he was a depu-
ty sheriff in Nassau County.
He had moved there with his
family because he feared for
their safety following the
hard-fought election. The two
candidates were backed by
the two predominant factions
in the county at that time. In a
later interview, Senator Johns
said the family home was set
on fire two times by political
enemies, but fortunately the
Bradford Guard unit was in
session on at least one occa-
sion, and quickly organized a
"bucket brigade" to put out,
the blaze. Noting the serious-
ness with which the factions
took their politics in those
days, Senator Johns said that
during his father's term as
sheriff, if he had to make a
trip to Lake Butler, he would-
'go there by one route and
return by another in an'
attempt to elude any planned
bushwhack.
After his defeat at the polls,
Everett Johns sought employ-
ment with his good friend,
Sheriff Higginbotham of
Nassau County, where he
was appointed chief deputy.
It was there that a trap was
set by an unidentified assas-'
sin. He was murdered on the
lonely sAnd dunes of Amelia
Island. In December of 1905
the Telegraph carried the fol-
lowing account of the murder
as published in the Thursday
Dec. 14, issue of the
Fernandina Star:
"The story is now familiar
how a strange white man,
assuming the name of Abe
Brown, faked a warrant for
the arrest of another for steal-
ing fishing nets to the value
of $500 and with this lured
Mr. Johns to the beach, where
he was slain with a single
bullet, fired through his head
from ear to ear, while riding
along with the man in his
buggy.
"They left town together
about 2:30 p.m. Wednesday
afternoon (Dec. 6). Not more
than- an hour later, a white
man was seen by a colored
boy to lead Mr. Johns' horse
across the shell road from the
north side, between James,
Drummond's house and
beach, and tie the horse, to a
tree. Thursday night, a large
posse searched the north end'
of the island, and about 2P
-o'clock in the morning Mr.
Harry. Starbuck was the first
to discover the body between
the fort and the jetties, and
-within about 300 yards of the
beach. The abandoned and
blood-stained buggy stood
near by." iNote: The fort
referred to must have been
Fort Clinch.)
"While- there is a deep-
founded suspicion as to the
motive and the source of the
dreadful crime there is niotat
this writing any substantial
clue as to the identity or the
whereabouts of the % illain
who did the foul deed. While
the body was rifled of watch,
revolver, and a diamond pin,
the robbery is considered
only incidental, and that the
motive was revenge, and that
the murderer was a hireling.
Fate seemed to conspire to
the advantage of the murder-
er in every way. The awaken-
ing fears caused by the
absence of the deputy sheriff,
were allayed for some hours
the next day by a telephone
message from a friend in
Jacksonville who made a
mistake in concluding that
Mr. Johns was there, where
he was due that day as a wit-
ness in United States Court.
By the time this was correct-


ed and a posse could be col-
lected to make the search, the
second night had closed
down on the body lying in
the lonely spot in the sandy
wastes of the beach and the
murderer could be a thousand
miles away.
"A man got on the train at
O'Neil on the evening of the
murder and got off before the
train reached Jacksonville


who may have been him (the
murderer). Possibly he took
Mr. Johns' watch, revolver,
and pini with him as proofs
that the deed was done, met
his party in Jacksonville and
got his pay, and has since put
many miles between him and
the scene of his crime. Chief
Muller went to Jacksonville
Saturday in response to a call
from Chief Vanzant, and
spent the day there. The
Jacksonville papers reported
they were working on a
strong clue, but Mr. Muller
admits they have nothing.
"Heart-rending were the
scenes at the home of the
murdered officer when the
dreadful news was broken; a'
home endeared by his faithful
care and love and devotion.
Could the fiend who commit-
ted the crime have witnessed
the grief of the devoted wife
and the crushed hearts of the
little children around the
mute form of the father, if a
spark of human feeling was
left in his breast, his portion
in hell would begin right
there. The revolver used by
the murderer has been found
lying on top of a sand hill at'
the scene of-the murder, with
three cartridges in it."



Sheriff Henry Epperson


Senator Johns later said
that his father made the trip
to Amelia Island by himself
and stopped at the assigned
spot to, hitch up his horse
when he was shot from
ambush by the unseen
assailant.
Fifth victim died under
mysterious circumstances
Two years after the death
of Everett Johns, his succes-
sor in the Bradford sheriff's
office, Joe Bennett, of
Lawtey, became the fifth to
die in office. In August of
1907, Sheriff Bennett, after
serving only two years of his
term, was 'found dead of
gunshot wounds, under mys-
terious circumstances, at his
home in Starke. For lack of
evidence, the death was pre-
sumed to be a suicide,
although foul play was sus'-
pected by some.
J.N. Langford, of Lake
Butler, was appointed to fill
Bennett's unexpired term and
was then reelected to a full
term in 1910. But he was
marked as number six in the
long line of Bradford sheriffs
to "die with their boots on."
After serving little more
than 18 months of his new
term, Langford was killed on


Aug. 23, 1912, in a roon
the old Everett Hotel
Jacksonville. He was in
company of W.T. Andr
of Raiford, and J
Hatcher of Worthing
Springs. There w
rumors that the fatal sh(
ing resulted from .a squ
ble over a gambling ga
during which Langford
Andrews struggled for i
session of a gun. So fa
is known, there was
indictment in the case.
In addition to the
sheriffs who died viol
deaths, three deputies
that period were also
tims of gun shot wound

Following the death of
Sheriff Langford, ex-Sheriff
Denmark sought another term
and was frequently described
as the only sheriff of that
period who lived long enough
in office to seek a second
term. But at any rate, with the
death of Langford the "tragic
era" for Bradford County
sheriffs seemed to end and
lengthy careers with repeated
reelections became traditional
in the sheriff's office.

of the Epperson family, defy-
Sing the jinx that had doomed
his father and older brother,
offered himself for the office
that had brought so much
unhappiness to the family.

Sheriff Denmark in the prim-k
ary by a 2-1 vote of 1,182 to
680 and began a career in law
enforcement that lasted 19
years. He died of natural
n of causes. The late Joe Hill
in Williams, a prominent attor-
the ney and assistant state attor-
ews ney, said of Epperson's deci-
.W. sion to seek the then-hazar-
gton dous office: "Will was a good
ere friend of mine and I begged
ot- him not to, run for the' job. I
jab- thought that two men out of
e one family was enough. But
me, Will went ahead anyway and
pos- served a long time without

as brave as the others, but had
a bump of caution that

A fun

Bradford High School seniors
enjoyed themselves during Senior
Fun Day on May 18, dividing up into
teams and participating in some
rather silly competitions. LEFT:

goal was to see which team could
build the biggest pile of shaving
cream.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

their might during a tug-of-war contest.


disappointed
with

graduation
etiquette
Dear Editor:
Friday night my husband and
I attended-. the graduation
ceremonies for our
granddaughter. It was a very
exciting time for our family
and for all of the friends land
families of the students who
had worked so hard for the past
13 years. That is why I was so
upset by the behavior and lack
of respect for the graduates. It
felt more like I was at a
football game than a graduation
ceremony.
People were constantly
walking up and down in front
of the stands while the entire
ceremony was taking place. I
have never seen such a lack of
respect or courtesy. People
- were talking on cell phones,
laughing and acting as if there
was nothing of importance
going on.
I hope and pray that in the
future this will be handled
differently. Maybe the law
enforcement officers should be
patrolling the stands and not
the field. Our superintendent,
Harry Hatcher, should see that
the next graduation class is
shown more respect and
courtesy than this years.
Congratulations to all of the
2005 graduates. You deserve a
round of applause from all of
us. May god bless you all.

BMS year
book is

disappointing
to reader
Dear Editor:
As I am sure you or
someone you know has seen
the year book from Bradford
Middle School. This was the
most disappointing thing I
have seen in a long time.
There are more mistakes than
you would believe. Can you
imagine the students who paid
$30 for this book only to find
their name with someone else's


picture ... or found their picture
'.with someone else', name
There are pictdres'that shfidul
have been shrunk before
printing so that all in the
photo can be seen.
The fact that it is entirely in
black and white with no color
photos is not worth the
money. This is a $12 book not
$30.
Was there no editing before
it went to press? This I do not
blame on the students, but the
lack of adult guidance.

Warning: a

sexual
predator lives
next door
This is what every mother
and father wants to hear, right?
Yet, this is what a friend was
calling to tell us.
Thanks to the Telegraph's
article several weeks ago, the
secret was out. One of the five
pictures of the sexual predators
living amongst us was our
neighbor and had been for more
than a year.
Unfortunately, it took the
death of Jessica Lundsford for
this information to reach the
public. In the following
month, just days ago, another
little girl, Sarah Lunde, would
fall victim to another violent
sexual offender. We all felt
sadness for those families, but
yet we went on in our lives
oblivious to the danger in our
own backyard, not because we
knew of the danger lurking in
our neighborhood, but because
we were not informed by our
sheriffs office, as required by
law, that a sexual predator,
Daniel Stokes, lived next door.
Our quiet neighborhood is
out in the country west of
Lawtey. On each side of this
sexual predator's home live
children of all ages. They ride
to each other's houses on bikes
and take afternoon walks, or at
least they did until this article
was printed.
The parents of these children
contacted Bob Milner, our
sheriff, to see what could be
done. We were all given
different stories by our sheriff.
He didn't know of this sexual
predator, or how long he had
been there.
We had to take it upon
ourselves to contact the FDLE,
which gave us much needed

Click It or
Ticket, now
in effect
Agencies throughout Florida
have in place the safety belt
enforcement wave, Click It or
Ticket.
From May 23 through June
5, agencies across the state will
show zero tolerance for
unbuckled motorist.
Last year 2,105 Floridians
were killed in motor vehicle
crashes. Florida law
enforcement will not sit by idly
and let this trend continue,
Starke Police Chief Gordon
Smith said. "We will
aggressively ticket unbelted
drivers and passengers," Chief
Smith said.
In 2004, this effort helped
increase Florida's safety belt use
rate to an all time high of 76.3,
percent. The combination of
active law enforcement, high-
profile publicity and the
advocacy and promotion by
public and private groups
continues to be an extremely
effective means for increasing
safety belt use and saving lives
across the county, Chief Smith
said.
Use your safety belt every
trip, every time, and make sure
all passengers are buckled up. If
you don't click it, you will get
a ticket, Chief Smith said.
.The Lawtey police officers
started the wave with a faulty
equipment check on Saturday,
May 21. One seat belt violation
was issued of the approximately
100 cars inspected, Lawtey
Captain Nathan R. Blom said.

We little knew that morning that
God was going to call your name.
In life we loved you dearly, in death
we do the same.
It broke our hearts to lose you, you
did not go alone; for part of us went
with you, the day God called you
home.
You left us peaceful memories, your
love is still our guide; and though
we cannot see you, you are always
at our side.
Our family chain is broken, and
nothing seems the same; but as God
calls us one by one the chain will
link again.

Bradford, Union honor fallen officers


By JAMES REDMOND
Times Staff Writer
Law enforcement officers
from Bradford and Union
counties gathered May 17 to
honor those who had given
their lives in the line of duty.
The Bradford/Union law
enforcement memorial service
is annual event that allows the
law enforcement community to
honor its own. The event also
recognizes the people the
fallen officers have left behind.
This year the event was
held at the Bradford County
Fairgrounds. Each year the city
Starke Police Department
(SPD), Union County Sheriffs
Office (UCSO) and the
Bradford County Sheriff's
Office (BCSO) take turns
hosting the event. This year, it
was the BCSO's turn to host.
A phrase on the front of the
event's program summed up
the entire reason for the-
memorial: "In honor and
remembrance of the fallen
officers who gave the ultimate
sacrifice in the line of duty and
to the families they left
behind."
The evening began with the
survivors of fallen law'
enforcement officers being
escorted into the building.
Officials from UCSO, SPD,
BCSO and the Florida
Department of Corrections
(FDOC) escorted survivors to
a special area set aside just for
them.
A special unit from the
Union Correctional Institution


then posted the American and
Florida flags. After the posting
of colors, Carol Milner sang
the national anthem. Pastor
Jeff Summers then offered the
invocation.
Before making his
presentation of all the agencies
involved with the ceremony,
SPD Chief Gordon Smith read
a poem to the gathering.
"Police Week," by Marc A
Turner, told about the
survivors of fallen law
enforcement officers gathering
at the national law
enforcement memorial wall in
Washington, D.C.
The poem told how the
survivors, with little more than
pictures and letters, stood there
to remember their loved ones.
"As they visit the wall there is
a great pain in their heart, but
strangely it's there that the
healing can start," read a line
from the poem.
The poem went on to remind
everyone that National Law
Enforcement Week is set aside
to remember those who
sacrificed for their community
and those they left behind.
"But this week lasts forever for
family and friends," the poem
ends.
The special guest speaker for
the evening was Michael
Johnson.. Johnson, a certified
critical incident stress
management debriefer, among
other titles, praised all law
enforcement officers for the
job they do. "These officers do
things many of us would just
not rather deal with," said


Johnson.
He also told the audience of
debriefing he performed with
officers from the New York-
City Police Department after
the events of Sept. 11.
"Several weeks into the
recovery they found a mother
that had a child's hand holding
on to her hand," said Johnson.
"They never found the child."
Johnson said this image was
something they would never be
able to get out of their minds.
"But this is the sacrifice that
our officers and correctional
officers make each and every
day to keep us safe," said
Johnson. "Law enforcement
officers do this job because
they want to make a difference
in our lives."
After Johnson's remarks,
commissioners presented each
jurisdiction with a
proclamation declaring May
16-23 Law Enforcement
Memorial Week in each area.
Bradford County
Commissioner Doyle Thomas
presented his county's
proclamation to Sheriff Bob
Milner. Both Thomas'
daughter and son-in-law serve
the Bradford County
community as law enforcement
officers. Starke Commissioner
Larry Davis presented Smith
with the city's proclamation.
Union County Commissioner
Ricky Jenkins did the honors
for his county presenting to
deputy Lyn Williams.
After the proclamations were
presented, Williams, Smith and
Milner took turns reading the
names of fallen law
enforcement officers in
Bradford and Union counties.
Union County Deputy Renee
Azure was the last name on the
list.


ALL


Azure lost her life while
responding to a call in Raiford
more than two years ago. The
Azure family, including her
mother, father and daughter,
all attended the ceremony.
After the roll call, Major
Grady Carrick of the Florida
Highway Patrol read the names
of those Florida officers who
were killed in the line of duty
during 2004. Those names
included Trooper George
Andrew Brown. Brown lost his
life in Lake City while
attempting to stop a fleeing
suspect.
The ceremony then moved
outside where a moment of
silence was observed for the
fallen heroes. An honor guard
from the Clay County Sheriff's
Office then performed a 21-
gun salute. The salute was
followed by a lone trumpeter
playing Taps.
After the ceremony,
survivors gathered to comfort
one another and remember
their loved ones. Pictures and'
letters could be seen in the-
hands of many of them.

LETTERS
Continued from p. 4ts

information and ideas of what
we could do. We found out that
he was under house arrest for a
violent sexual attack upon a 3-
year-old, and had been so for a
year with two years left, and
probation after. Our sheriff
didn't know this. He told us if
we saw him out in our
neighborhood we could not do
anything, and when our sheriff
was told that he was under
house arrest, this was news to
him.
The FDLE told us Florida
statute 775.21 section 7A
requires the notification of the
community by the local law
enforcement agency that a
sexual predator is in the
community.
Daniel Stokes lived in our
neighborhood for more than a
year as a sexual predator, before
the Telegraph ran their story. It
wasn't until then, we had to
coerce the sheriff to notify our
neighborhood and that took


three weeks.
It is evident that it will take
a death of one of our children,
maybe even yours, by a sexual
predator in our neighborhoods,
before we see any action.
We, as taxpaying citizens,
are not even getting the bare
minimum support from our
sheriff. If a predator lived in the
sheriffs neighborhood or one
of his deputies or another
"prominent" citizen, or this
was an election year, then I am
sure without a doubt that the
correct action required by law
would have already been done.
We are your average family
just like you that have children
who we dearly love. I am sure
if Jessica's or Sarah's parents
would have been correctly
,notified, they might be alive
today. We won't stand by and
be the victims. Will you let
apathy kill your little girl, or
rape your son?
Make your sheriff work for
you. You put him in office to
protect our children now hold
him accountable.ward Crews

Family needs help to pay for child'


protective helmet


By LINDA ZCHORR
Telegraph Staff Writer

Imagine a mother's emotions
'when being told that her
:newborn daughter's developing
skull has already locked itself in
size, allowing no more room for
her baby's growing brain.
Imagine this when insurance
won't cover the cost, when a
spouse is disabled and non-
working, and when working
hard waitressing still doesn't
meet the cost.
This is the struggle as told by
mother and hardworking
waitress Tabitha Baker, who-is-
the mother of little Hailey Ann
Baker.
The happy girl, born just two
months ago on March 7, was
soon diagnosed with a condition
of premature cranial bone
hardening and fusion called
craniosynostosis, which has
eliminated the usual "soft spot"
on the infant's head. Since at
thispoint in time a baby's brain
is still growing, this poses an
obvious and serious medical
problem.
Baker remarked that her
daughter's brain "is coming out
through her forehead" with her
head starting to take' on the
shape of a "football." Although
"she's a happy baby," says
Baker, she suffers headaches as
her brain continues to push on
her skull.
"She's a good-baby,- she's a.
wonderful baby" says the proud
mother of her baby, who "will
most likely need a blood
transfusion' as part of her three-


and-a-half-hour surgery. remove bone from her skull in a

protective helmet that Hailey

as well as private insurance


companies, deem the helmet as
"not a life-or-death situation,"
Baker explained.

KHHS junior varsity team


wins spring classic 21-6


By CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
It wasn't a perfect
performance, but when the
Keystone Heights junior varsity
football team was able to hang
onto the ball, it scored and that,
with a stout defensive effort, led
to a 21-6 victory over host
Hawthorne in a half of play
during a spring classic on May
19.
Keystone fumbled the ball
away three times. Otherwise,
the Indians may have put more
points -on the board. They
scored on every other
possession with the exception
of their last drive, which
resulted in quarterback Brandon
Walker taking a knee on the last
play of the game.
Cameron Yarborough's 6-
yard touchdown run, and Brett
Andeirson's subsequent PAT,
put the Indians up 21-0 with
4:31 remaining in the game. Up
to that point, the Keystone
defense held Hawthorne to
minus-3 yards, but the Hornets
scored when receiver Steve'
Moore caught a pass in stride in
front of a couple of defenders
for a 75-yard touchdown 11
seconds after Yarborough's
score.
Overall, the Hornets managed
85 yards for the game as
Keystone defenders were
constantly making tackles for
losses. Jacob Murrhee had two.
quarterback sacks for a-loss of
14 yards and he also teamed up
with Anderson for another sack
of 6 yards. Anderson had a solo
sack for a loss of 3 yards and he
and Murrhee each had a fumble
recovery.
The game began with a score
when the Indians, starting at
their own 25, gained five first
downs on an 11-play drive that
culminated in ar6 8-yard

Tigers defeat Hurricanes, Bobacts in spring jamboree


By JAMES REDMOND
Times Staff Writer
If the 2005 spring jamobree
is any indication of this year's
edition of the Union County
Tiger football team, Tiger fans
will have a lot to celebrate.
C.J. Spiller and the Tigers'
offense outscored both the
Gainesville Purple Hurricanes
(8-0) and the Buchholz
Bobcats (22-21), playing each
team for two quarters during a.
May 19 jamboree in Lake
Butler. Spiller accounted for
three touchdowns, including
the go ahead score against
Buchholz, and one
interception.
The highly talented running
back gained more than 100
yards on the evening, including
a 51-yard scramble on the
Tigers' first play from
scrimmage. The soon-to-be
senior ran through tackles as
well as avoiding them in the
victory.
Union county fans were not
the only ones admiring
Spiller's moves. College
scouts from schools such as
Florida, Florida State and
Tennessee were all on the
sideline, seeing moves he
could put on his opponents.
Spiller is expected to be one of
the most sought after players in
the state this season.
When asked -after the game
if all the attention made him
nervous, Spiller simply replied,
"No." He did give thanks to
God and his teammates for
making his success possible.

Several of his teammates
had tremendous nights as well.
Mathis Jackson had several
runs of 15 yards or more.
Kasey Nobles caught a 40-yard
pass from quarterback Austen
Roberts. Kevin Alexander also
made several key tackles for
the defense.
The Tigers began the
evening, by taking on the
Hurricanes after Gainesville
and Buchholz had already


played each other for one
quarter.
While the Tigers' defense
would bend during the first
two quarters against the
Huuricanes, they did not break.
It was apparent that head coach
Buddy Nobles had already
made his Hurricane
preparations. The Tiger
defense pitched a shutout by
stopping Gainesville on key
downs.
One such down was a third-
and-1 situation. The
Hurricanes ran a sweep that the
Tiger defense recognized and
dropped for a loss. Other such
key plays allowed the Tigers to
keep the Hurricanes scoreless.
The only score against the
Hurricanes came on the
Tigers' second play from
scrimmage. Jackson took a
handoff 21 yards to pay dirt.
This was followed by a 4-yard
run by Spiller to give the
Tigers an 8-0 lead and eventual
win.
As the second half of the
evening began, former Union
County football players began
to gather on the sidelines.
Jeremy Brown, Brandon
Davis, Kevin Holton and
Jonathon Rodgers all, looked
on as their teammates played.
Brown, who recently signed
a scholarship to attend
Jacksonville University, said
he would suit up if he could.
"It's a little strange being out
here and not in a uniform,"
said Brown.
Holton also signed a
scholarship to attend Golden
West Community College this
fall.
Spiller began the second half
in the same fashion he began
the first. Five plays into the
third quarter, he raced 24 yards
to the promised land. The
score gave the Tigers a 6-0
lead. A failed two-point
conversion left them there.
The Bobcats began to mount
a drive of their own on their
first possession. They moved
the ball down the field until
Brendan Odom made an

To live in the presence of great truths and eternal laws, to

unspoiled when the world praises him.

The best advice I can give to any young man or young
woman upon graduation from school can be summed up in
exactly eight words, and they are-be honest with yourself
and tell the truth.

plays later he would find the
ball in his hands once again for
a 9-yard touchdown run.
Alexander made the two-point
conversion as the Tigers pulled
even at 14-all.
Buchholz put together
another quick scoring drive.
An 80-yard touchdown pass
capped a three-play drive and
gave the Bobcats a 21-14 lead
with 7:02 left.in regulation.
With more than seven
minutes left, many Tiger fans
were confident the game was
far from over and. that their
team would come back.
Come back they did as the
Tigers scored in four plays.
Spiller took the pigskin 25


yards to paydirt for the final
touchdown of the game. Not
wanting to risk a tie, coach
Nobles went for the two-point
conversion. It paid off as
Kasey Nobles caught a pass in
the back of the end zone to cap
the scoring at 22-21.
The Bobcats failed to
convert on a fourth-and-1
situation, giving the'ball back
to the Tigers. The Tigers ran
out the clock by taking a knee.
After the game, coach
Nobles said he was proud bf
his players and was happy with
their performance. He urged
them to take some time off
before summer drills begin in
June.

interception for the Tigers.
The Tiger- offense could do
little with the opportunity.
They would get 9 yards on the
drive from Spiller. but it was
not enough as the Tigers only
gained 2 of the 3 yards needed
on fourth down.
Buchholz quickly, captialized
on the opportunity, taking just
four plays to get the go-ahead
score. An 11-yard run with


1:58 left in the third gave the
Bobcats a 7-6 lead.
After a fumble by Spiller,
the Bobcats scored again in
five plays for a 14-6 lead. A
35-yard run put the touchdown
on the board.
A fake punt enabled the
Tigers to tie the score. On
fourth-and-10 play, Spiller
took a direct snap and galloped
15 yards for a first down. Four

BHS coach pleased with spring despite lack of a game


By CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
While the Keystone Heights
and Union County football
teams were playing in spring
games.- May 1-9, the Bradford
Tornadoes were already done
with spring, having concluded it
on May 17 and without playing
a spring game.
Bradford's originally
scheduled spring game fell
through when its opponent,
when calling to confirm the
game, called Branford High
School instead of Bradford. The
Tornadoes were unable to find
an opponent after that game fell
through, but head coach Chad


Bankston is not too worried
about that. He said playing an
opponent in the spring really
has no impact on what happens
during the fall.
Still, Bankston did say it
would have been good if he
could see how the players
would react to playing against
competition other than
themselves.
"A chance to hit a different-
colored jersey would have been
nice," Bankston said.
Though Bradford did not play
a spring game, Bankston said
the spring practice was the
same as last .year with the
exception of the team
participating in more hitting
drills.

play tacked on another 15
yards, giving Keystone the ball
at the Hawthorne 29. Three
plays later, Joel Morgan bowled
over a couple of would-be
tackles before dragging five
defenders down to the 6-yard
line for a 19-yard gain. That run
set up Yarborough's second
score.
Yarborough finished the
game with more than 60 yards
on the ground, while Morgan
and Story each had more than
50 yards rushing. Each back
averaged more than 6 yards per
carry, with Yarborough
averaging more than 10 yards a

James Jamison,
Bradford's
leading rusher
last season, is
one of just a few
experienced
players returning
next season.


Overall, Bankston said he
was pleased with how the.
spring went.
"I think it went real well," he
said. "We came out of it with
no major injuries, so, to me,
that's a pretty good sign of a
good spring."
The main goal of the spring
was to try to get the players to
become tougher, Bankston said.
That's crucial with the loss of
some "big" players.
"We've got to (get tougher)
because we're just not very
big," Bankston said. "When you
lose Letroy (Guion), Opie
(Japan Ruise) and Eric Palmer
on the defensive line and you
don't have anybody to replace
them with who are even close to
that ,size, you've got to be
tough."
The defensive line is a
weakness right now, but
Bankston said he believes the
Tornadoes will eventually be
fine at that position with the


LW.,


players they have.
One area on the defensive
side of the ball that will be a
strength is at linebacker,
Bankston said. If he had to pick
his four starters right now,
Bankston said it would be
Shauntel Carter, Chuckie
Covington, D.J. McBride and
Kevin Randolph. Trevares
Fulse and Kyle Mercer will also
be thrown into the mix.
"Our linebacking corps is
going to be better than it was
last year," Bankston said.
"We're going to be faster."
The entire offensive line will
be new this season for
Bradford. Bankston said the
unit improved throughout the
spring, but added it still has a
long way to go. Mercer, who
will be a junior, shows a lot of
promise at the guard position,
Bankston said.
Bradford has depth to work
with at running back and in the
secondary. James Jamison, last

season's leading rusher, Fulse,
Rob Harris and J.R. Petteway
will all be factors in the
offensive backfield, and
Bankston said he could also
throw four more players into
the mix. The secondary will

on the PAT.
Taylor finished the game
with 41 yards rushing on 10

Overall, the Indians rushed

could possibly be the punter.
Some. solid players mixed in
with a lot of young
players-that's what Bradford
has and it could lead to a bright
future, Bankston said.
"The one thing about being
young-if we keep working

future it's going to pay off,"
Bankston said. "There are going

Starke man and partner help state sniff out arson


By CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer

The Florida State Fire
Marshal's Jacksonville Field
Office is using a "mobile
laboratory" that just so happens
to be covered with fur and
possesses a cold, wet nose.
Actually, the office now
employs the newest member of
the State Fire Marshal's canine
program-Molly, a Labrador
retriever. She and Detective
Robert "Andy" Redding, a
lifelong Bradford County
resident, have partnered
together to become the sixth
canine team working the state.
Redding said he views Molly
as a mobile lab-no pun
intended-because her training
saves the State Fire Marshal's
Office a lot of time. Molly's
nose is able to detect whether or
not hydrocarbon-based
accelerants are present at a fire
scene, thus proving whether or
not arson is a factor.
Molly's keen sense lets
investigators know a lot sooner
what areas at a scene they need
to concentrate on. Redding said
without Molly, samples at the
scene would have to be sent to a
lab and it may take three or four
weeks before the results of
those samples are available.
Redding said investigations
are made easier if arson can be

It has not taken long for
Molly's services to pay off. She

involving a burned vehicle in
Putnam County after she was
on the job just three days.
"She indicated on accelerants

The benefits of having Molly
far outweigh the cost of taking
care of her, Redding said. He
estimates it costs $1,000 a year
to care for Molly as food and a
couple of visits to the
veterinarian are all she requires.

Tech. Sgt. John
James is pictured

Kristapher.

(from left) examine their American flags.


By CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer

What began as a way to cheer
up a fellow classmate became a
rewarding experience for every
child in Cheri Whitehead's
first-grade class at Lawtey
Community School, all of
whdm were presented with
special gifts last week from
Regina James.
James's husband, John, is
currently serving in Iraq as a
member of the 202nd RED
HORSE (Rapid Engineer
Deployable Heavy Operational
Repair Squadron Engineers)
Squadron. John James, a
technical sergeant in his unit,
has received letters from his
son, Kristapher, and the rest of
Whitehead's students. In return,
John' wanted to give the
students something special.
Regina James presented
Whitehead's students, during a
brief ceremony at the school's
media center on May 19, with
small American flags, all of
which were flown over Iraq
during a combat mission on
April 28. The flags were also
accompanied by laminated
certificates bearing pictures of
the jets that flew the flags as
well as information :about the
jets and their pilots.
"(John) wanted to do
something very special for them
with it being the end of the
(school) year," Regina James
said.
John James also sent a large
American flag for the entire
class, as well as a letter
addressed to the class, which
Principal" Lisa Prevatt 'read.


Regina James (left) and Lawtey Community School Principal Lisa Prevatt display the
American flag presented to Cheri Whitehead's first-grade class. Prevatt also shows
students one of the certificates that each one of them received.


John thanked all of the students
for writing him.
"It really meant a lot knowing
that you took time out of your
busy school schedule to write
me," John wrote. "I enjoyed
reading what each, one of you
likes to do when you're at
home. I enjoy spending time
with my family, riding my four-
wheeler and going to
Kristapher's baseball games."
Regina James said the letters
meant a lot to her husband, but

accelerant. Then, the dogs had
to locate accelerants during
several different exercises,
including a blind test in which'
the dogs had to find an
accelerant in one of four cans.
No one at Maine knew which
can contained the
accelerant-the cans were sent
to Maine by a chemist. The
chemist had.to..eoclled afper,
ihe iet and 'tMold which cans the
dogs and'their handlers chose to
confirm who was correct and
who was wrong.
Such a chemist-certified test
is ongoing throughout a dog's
career %with the State Fire
Marshal's Office.
"That has to be done once a
year to keep the dog certified,"
Redding said. "That was
probably\ the most tense daN in
our %hole training process.
Before that time. the instructors
knew which samples had
accelerants."
Redding said the working life


,of an accelerant-indicating dog
is five or six years. After Molly,
who is approximately 18
months old, puts in her time,
she will retire and become a
full-time family pet of
Redding's.
Molly is already a part-time
family pet. She stays at
Redding's home when he is not
on the job. Redding's wife,
Renee, loves animals, so she
has had no problems hitting it
off with Molly. The Reddings'
Shih Tzu, Fisher, has also
gotten along with Molly despite
the vast differencer.in.-size otfIhe


two dogs. In fact. the foursome
recently enjoyed a fishing trip,
which Redding referred to as a
family outing.
"Our pets are our children,"
Redding said.
Redding is a 1997 Bradford
High School graduate. After
high school, he attended Santa
Fe Community College and
then the Police Academy in
Lake City. He worked for the
Gaines ille Police Department
before accepting a job with the
State Fire Marshal's Office in
August 2003.
He has always had an interest


in fire and its behavior, Redding
said, but the first opportunity he
was offered with the State Fire
Marshal was in Orlando.
Redding's wife was currently
attending the University of
Florida and was not at a point in
her scholastic career where she
could transfer to another school.
Redding did not accept the
job because he and his wife
simply could not make it work.
He would have to maintain a
residence in Orlando while his
%wife stayed in Bradford Count',
and they could not afford to
ihai-rp'-zwo homes6.Redding- said
he piii the niitter in G,'I''
hands, saying things wotild


work out for him if it was
meant for him to work in this
area.
Two weeks after declining
the position in Orlando,
Redding was offered the
position he currently holds.
"It's all worked out for the
best," Redding said, adding that
he thinks he has the greatest job
in law enforcement.
And now it's a job in which
he has a constant companion.
Human or not, Molly is
Redding's partner.
"I find myself just turning
around'and talking to the dog"
like'she was a person," Reddinh
said.

Outdoor

survival kit

By JOHN WHITFIELD
Contributing Outdoors Editor
Most of us have a list of
things we just don't want to be
without while we are in the
outdoors. Whether hunting,
fishing, camping, hiking or
enjoying any other -outdoor.
sports and activities, there are


some items we really need to
make the trip more enjoyable,
fight off the bugs or to handle
any break down or emergency.
Here's a list of the top 20
outdoor equipment necessities,
plus the one most important
tool of all, which is in a
category all by itself-the snake
stick!
The snake stick
If you are an outdoor person
in Florida, you have probably
encountered a rattlesnake, coral
snake or water moccasin. It
goes with the territory........


We have lots of palmetto
patches which are rattlesnake
friendly and the water moccasin
can show up anywhere there is
water.
I personally do not kill any
harmless snakes and I have
relocated dozens. Poisonous
snakes, however, are a different
matter. With our children and
now grandchildren often out in
the yard, I have removed
several coral snakes and also
killed a small diamondback in
my neighbor's yard.
Most of us don't want any
rattlesnakes around our. deer
stands or moccasins around our
docks or boats. They need to
go. So I carry a snake-killing
stick in the bed of my truck. My
stick is about 5.5 feet long and
is slightly curved at the big end.
This will dispatch a poisonous
snake with a couple of good
whacks.
You can make your own stick
out of any hard wood. I would
avoid -pine -or mimosa-too
soft. Mine is made out of an old
wild hog plum tree.
The question arises as to how
long do you want your snake
stick to be? Well, how close do
you want to be to the snake?
Now, with our most


important piece of Florida-
outdoor equipment in hand,
let's run down the list of the top
20 necessary items, in no
particular order, except to save
the best for last.
The top 20
1. PVC pipe and glue.
The true outdoorsman can
make almost anything out of
PVC pipe-various' racks,
hooks, tent and tarp supports,
tool and equipment holders,
game feeders, etc. It literally
has hundreds of other uses
around the camp, woods and
water. Make it, shape it and
paint it camo. Great.
2. Camo paint.
Various shades-greens,
blacks a-nd b'rowns-of flat
spray paint used to convert
anything normal into something
concealed. Virtually anything
taken into the woods can be
camo'd. Use "flat" spray paint
to cut down glare and reflection
of- light. There-are even
body/face camo paint kits for
the diehard warriors out there.
Camo it!
3. Come Along.
Keep one of these in your
truck. You never know when
you are going to ha'e to get


something heavy unstuck or
moved. The Come Along can
save you much time, can save
your back, and it can really get
you out of a jam, especially if
you are alone and need help
getting out.
4. Four-wheel drive.
Greatest automotive
invention since the spare tire. In
this Florida sand, every truck or
SUV needs 4WD. You have a
wider range of places you can
go and you can pull out a buddy
when he gets stuck.,
5. A pick-up truck.
Every boy's dream, right?
The versatility of a truck is
terrific. You say, "Just throw it
in the back of the truck." You
do, and you drive on. Oh, what
a feeling! -
6. Thermos bottle. -
After a cold morning out on
the lake or up in a deer stand,
there is nothing better than
some coffee, hot chocolate or
soup from a thermos.
- 7.Insect spray. -
I am not ordinarily a
proponent of using any
chemicals at all on my skin, but
in Florida you can be eaten
alive by these piranha-style
mosquitoes, gnats and ticks. We


need all the help we can get.
8. Thermacell.
My personal favorite way of
dealing with bugs, the
Thermacell, costs about $25
and is worth every dime of it, It
uses a small butane cylinder'to
heat up an insect retardant pad
which repels mosquitoes out to
about 15 feet.
9. Whisker Biscuit.
If you are an archery hunter,
you've got to get one of these.
It keeps your arrow from falling
off the guide when you mo-ve.
A dropped arrow down the
steps of your deer stand ean
make more noise than- a
Ricocheting pinball in a pile of
tin cans.
10. Canned air..
That's right, the same stuff
you use on your computer; This
can be used to blow the dust
and moisture off your scope,
binocs, glasses and can also be
used to clean your reels, gans
and other equipment.
11. Jumper cables.
Dead batteries do occur -on
the water and in the woods. Be
ready.
12. Fix-A-Flat.

it also meant a lot to Kristapher
to be able to write to his father
and share that experience with
the rest of his classmates.
Kristapher was feeling down
because his father was not at
home, so Whitehead thought
writing letters to John wouiff be
a way to cheer Kristapher up.
"It's been a comfort to
(Kristapher) that his classmates
have taken an interest in writing
his dad," Regina said.
Regina took part-.in. "sho.w-
and-tell" prior to the
presentation of the flags and
certificates by showing students
several items her husband has
sent from Iraq.

toenails, this can be used for
pulling out splinters, cutting
excess fishing line off your- lure
and -fer-getting revenge on that
dasted tick that nailed you
while you were sleeping.
15. Duct tape.
This essential can be used to
stick any two things together,
.even non-related items like a
couple of smart-mouthed kids
next door. You just tape their
heads together and let them
play in their back yard. Their
mom will look out and say,
"Wow, Billy and Susie are
playing .so well together today."
Then you go fishing. (Not
really, but I know a couple of


kids who would probably
benefit from this!)
- 16; Cell phone.
Gotta have 'em for safety's
sake.
17. Toilet paper.
18. Sardines, Vi-enna
sausages and saltine crackers.
If you do actually ever get
caught out in the woods or on
the water-without these,- your
reputation is ruined. Go home
and mow the lawn.
19. Sharp pocket knife.
Used for cleaning fingernails,
skinning deer, cutting string and
stuff, opening envelopes,
wedging open things that are
stuck, cleaning fish and, most


of all, for getting either sardines
or Vienna sausages out of the
can without spilling the juice oni
you.
20. Plastic, sealable
bags-an assorted sizes
package.
The most important item of
all. Indispensable. Invaluable.
Limitless usages. Utilizing.
various sizes of bags, you can
carry your bait, a sandwich or
deer lures or scent. You can
store anything, from jelly
worms to Beetle Spins and all
your deer and turkey calls. You
can waterproof your hunting
and fishing licenses and store
matches, a Bic and some T.P.


And you can protect your
wallet, extra glasses or anything
special while outdoors.
The bags are also great in an
emergency. You can use one for
a cup to drink out of, bail water
out of your boat or put over
your head in a heavy rainstorm.
You can make an ice pack or
hot water bottle. You can store,
keep or transport almost
anything.
Be prepared and enjoy the
outdoors!

Just keep a can or two
around. A boat trailer tire,
ATV, or any vehicle-you
never know.
13. A fix-it kit.'
This is the unofficial redneck
version of a hurricane survival
kit. With a coat hanger, some
string or twine, a roll of duct
tape and a-couple- pieces of
balin' wire, you're ready to
"fix" something if its breaks. If
Gorilla Glue won't permanently
fix the item when you get
home, you need a new one.
14. Fingernail clippers.-
Besides'- fingernails- and


-Conner Coleman and his
two-pound bass

Conner

Coleman lands

abig bass
On May 5, Conner Coleman
joined his brother, Carson, and
cousins, William Thomassen,
and Jay Groves, and Papa
Coleman on a fishing excursion
at Silver Lake in Keystone. It
was his first big experience of
fishing from a boat.
He almost missed the catch of
the day when his shin hit
against the boat as the line was
being tugged. His cousin
William said, "Do you want it
bad enough or are you going to
let that fish get away?"
Conner .realized- what- he
needed to do, so he held tightly
onto the reel and began the
difficult task of pulling in his
prize 2-pound large mouth bass
into the boat.
