Senator sightings



Nelson,

By MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Staff Writer
Bradford County wants more
money for roads, affordable health-
care and cheaper gas, or so residents
told Florida Sen. Bill Nelson on
Monday when he paid a visit to
downtown Starke.
Nelson's visit followed an appear-
ance by Florida's other senator, Sen.
Mel Martinez, who had lunch with
cadets involved in the Florida Youth
Challenge Academy at Camp
Blanding on Aug. 9. It was one stop
on his tour ol North Florida military
sites.

are doing in Iraq. He went on to
address his fight against the attack on
personal privacy, Social Security and
Medicare benefits. But when the
floor was opened to questions, Doris
Sandberg threw out a question that is
on everyone's mind: Will Americans'
ever see the ceiling on rising gasoline
prices?
Nelson couldn't predict when or
where spiking prices would end, but
he did share his ideas on how
America could begin to change the
trend without compromising
Florida's coasts.

Starke increasing

communications tax


By MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Staff Writer
Without a word of discussion
among board members Aug. 16, the
Starke City Commission approved
the first reading of an ordinance to
increase its communications services
tax' from 3.5 percent to 5.1 percent.
According to City Manager Ken
Sauer, the increase would yield an
additional $100,000 annually for the
city, which is finding itself short of
revenue to cover its expenses as the
new budget year approaches. (See
related story.)
Saucr attributed the suggested


increase in the tax to a suggestion
from the financial resources manager
* for the Florida League of Cities, Ken
Small. Other cities are making simi-
lar moves, Sauer said.
A move to quadruple tOe county's
communications tax was narrowly
defeated in April by three of the five
county commissioners.
'By comparison, the county pro-
posed an increase from 0.4 to 1.6 per-
Scent. If Starke's tax increase is
approved later this month Starke res-
idents and businesses would pay a 5.1
percent tix on communications

Help Light a Little Star on November 19


By MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Staff Writer
,Early last Friday morning, leaders,
from Bradford County filed into the
atrium at Shands at Starke for a
breakfast with representatives from
the March of Dimes, which is kicking
off a campaign aimed at ending pre-
mature births.
Lila Sellars, who, Shands' Andrea
Waterhouse pointed out. has been
active in several organizations,
including Kiwanis to United
Methodist Women, will serve as the
local chairperson for the March of
Dimes campaign committee. Her
experience so far has already taught
her so much, she said, including the
large number of women who experi-
ence premature births.
Thanking those who attended the
breakfast, Sellars said she wanted
them to help make this the best Light
a Little Star program around,.
"We should be honored andflat-
tered to have such a program here.
We're the first county in the state of
Florida to be chosen. That's a real
honor for Bradford County," Sellars
said to enthusiastic applause from the
crowd.
'Lynda Knight. executive director
for the North Central Florida divi-
sion, placed the Light a Little Star
campaign in the context of the March
of Dimes' other successful cam-


paigns, including its work to eradi-
cate polio. The effort to deal with the
50,000 new cases of the crippling and'
deadly disease each year began in
1938. President Franklin Delano
Roosevelt, himself afflicted with the
disease, established the March of
Dimes that year. Within 20 years,
thousands of volunteers raised the
money that allowed scientists to
-develop the polio vaccine.
"This country came, together with'
an army of volunteers and we raised
the money. And so, all of us sitting in
this room today, having received the
gift from those volunteers two gener-
ations ago, today don't fear being
crippled or dying from polio, nor do
our children or grandchildren,"
Knight said.
This year marks the 50th anniver-
sary of the polio vaccine discovery,
but the March of Dimes' work for
children didn't stop there. The organ-
ization continued to focus on areas
like prevention of birth., defects and
infant mortality. The organization
was instrumental in placing a neona-
tal intensive care unit within 50 miles-
of every baby in this country, Knight
said. Those units and the technology
in them are there because volunteers
have continued to raise money, she
said.
The Light a Little Star campaign
has as its goal an end to the phenom-
enon of premature births. It is an epi-


demic, Knight said, that many people
don't recognize. It is the number one
killer of newborns. i
S"Since 1981, this country has expe-.
rienced a 29 percent increase in pre-
maturity." she said. That now


amounts to more than 470,000 babies
born in the United States each year-
10 times the number that were affect-
ed by polio each year and 12 percent
of all live births. In 2003. of the 300
live births in Bradford County, 38


were preterm.
While technology and treatment
can help a number of those infants
survive, survival is a fight too often
lost.

cannot break the strangle hold
of the oil lobby," Nelson said,
adding that his first filibuster
in the Senate succeeded in
winning a pledge from the
Senate leadership not to allow
drilling off Florida's coast.
But, Nelson said, Secretary of
the Interior Gayle Norton is
"absolutely intent" on, drilling
in the Gulf and a similar bill
will be proposed next month.
Having said that, Nelson
said America imports .58
percent of its oil, adding that
foreign dependency is bad ,for
both gas prices and for
America's defense.
"Every opportunity I get-a
speech on the floor, a town
hall meeting-I try to tell
people if we can break the
stranglehold of the oil lobby,,
,,e cani do something
tomorrow," he said.
Nelson said the United
States should begin mixing
more ethanolwijth.gasoline and
make the ethanol more
affordable by making it with
prairie grass instead of corn.
Automobile manufacturers
should also be required to offer
consumers the choice of a
hybrid engine on all new
vehicles, and consumers
should be able to charge those
hybrid engines by plugging
them into an outlet in their
garages, Nelson said.
Sam Patel asked Nelson
about the safety of Social
Security. Nelson said that
despite claims-that they system
is in crisis, it is actuarially
sound for the next 37-47 years.
He said the proposal to allow
personal investments with
Social Security contributions
would result in reduced
benefits and increased national
debt.
"I don't think the Social
Security system was intended
to be an investment system. I
think it was intended to be a
social security system," Nelson
said, adding it has worked well
since the 1930s and brought
many senior citizens from the
brink of poverty, although the
ideal is that seniors wouldn't
have to rely on Social Security
alone. He indicated savings
and employment pensions
should also be a part of the
equation, but are less reliable if
you consider cases like Enron,
WorldCom and United
Airlines.
"I'm just not going to
participate in the dismantling
of Social Security," Nelson
said.
The topic changed from
Social Security to healthcare
when Lawrence. Northrup
asked about the possibility of
abandoning private health
insurers in favor of a national
healthcare system with
uniform costs. Nelson agreed
that insurance' is unaffordable,
particularly foi small
businesses.
"The problem is getting the
political will and getting the
votes to, in this case, break all
of the entrenched interests,"
which he said included
insurers as well as health care
providers and hospitals. "All
this kind of comes together in
this complex web that we have
worked ourselves into."
While Nelson said he would
never want to eliminate private
enterprise and competitions, he


did see a problem with
organizing health insurance.
coverage around employers.
Instead, he said he would offer
Americans a system similar to
the one federal employees like
himself receive, which keeps
costs low by spreading health
risk and -the associated costs
among millions of participants.
It would cover all Americans,
including the 44 million who
currently have no coverage.
Private health providers would
have to compete for their
business and Americans would
have a choice of where to take
their business and what level
of coverage they. wanted to
receive, Nelson said.
Similarly, Mark Adams
asked about the burden of
carrying workers'
compensation insurance. He


said small businesses are W-
subsidizing large businesses \
because of the requirement to '
carry workers' compensation.
Although he said he would like "
to race horses. in Tampa Bay,.
he would have to pay a full
year's premium for insurance
he would only need three '

Premature birth is a major
cause of lifelong disabilities,
including blindness, cerebral
palsy and mental retardation.
In nearly half of the cases,
doctors still don't know why
women deliver prematurely.

the country already involved
with the March of Dimes on
behalf, of those premature
children.

"This is the pilot one for the

The state, which also
collects tax on-
communications, allows
municipalities that do i not
collect permit fees to collect a
higher percentage taxi! on
communications than counties.
The tax is .not levied on
telephone communications
- alone. A 2001 law restructured
and consolidated several state
and local taxes on
communications into the
current state communication
services tax and local
communications services tax.
It covers local, long-distance
and toll telephone calls as well
,as mobile phone
communications, faxes, pagers
and beepers, cable television,

The city nearly missed its
opportunity to impose the tax
hike for 2006., The law
requires .the. Florida

notified of the tax increase by
Sept. I before the year the
increase is to take effect. The
ordinance was not advertised
until last week, and it was
actually misadvertised as the
second and final reading.
In order to get that second

Deeper cUtS needed to balance Horn makes his own statement

Starke's 2005-06 budget iN


Departments asked
to freeze spending

By MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Staff Writer

Another tense workshop led
to predictions of a lean budget
year ahead and a request by
Starke City Commissioners
that departments observe a
spending freeze for the
remainder of this budget year.
By Aug. 15, with nearly all
of the capital outlay costs for
the coming year stripped from
the budget, the city's deficit
had been cut by more than $1
million. The general fund,
however, was still out of
balance by nearly $300,000,
causing commissioners to
consider cutting money
budgeted to cover a 2 percent
pay raise for employees and
the purchase of new police
cars as well as money
budgeted to cover professional
and contractual services and
the codification of city
7 ordinances.
In addition to capital outlay
reductions, the utility fund was
balanced by reducing the
transfer from the electric utility
' to the general fund and
reexamining line items from
maintenance down to postage
stamps. Even with a 5 percent


increase in sewer and water
service rates left in the budget,.
the sewer utility still came up
short to the tune of $258,000.
Surpluses in the other .utilities
resulted in a balanced utility
fund. A 25 to 30 percent
increase in sewer rates would
be necessary to make the
department solvent instead of
costing the city money to
maintain each year.
Aside from the list of cuts
City Manger Ken Sauer
provided to the commission,
he also prepared a list of
needed capital improvements
along with the estimated costs
of making those
improvements, including:
$2.4 million for electric
department upgrades and
equipment.
$885,150 for equipment
well repair, new wells, a water
treatment plant for the new
well and equipment for the
water department.
Nearly $1.5 million for
equipment and treatment plant
upgrades for the sewer
department.
$144,050 for equipment
and the replacement of the
steel gas distribution system
for the gas department.
$1.5 "million for street
repair and resurfacing for the
street department.
* Nearly $5.5 million for


public works, primarily to
cover the ongoing sewer
rehabilitation project.
* $668,100 for a new
recreation. facility and the cost
of moving portables to the
park at Thomas Street.
* $32,433 for improvements
to city hall and implementation
of a Web site.
The grand total comes to
more than $12.6 million.
Besides the combination of
grant and loan money the city
is receiving to pay for the
sewer rehabilitation, the city
cannot afford to fund the
remaining needs.
Revenue shortage was the
point of Sauer's third handout,
which suggests increases in
existing impact fees and points
to possibilities for new impact
fees for services like streets,
fire and police protection. New
fees could take the form of
one-time impact fees or annual
assessments.
Aside from a move to
increase the city's
communications services tax
(see related story), these
options have ,yet' to be
considered by the board.
The city clerk and manager
are expected to have the
budget completed next week
after they and the commission
return from the Florida League
of Cities Conference in
Orlando.


Chamber striving for increased

community awareness


By MARK J. CRAWFORD
i Telegraph Staff Writer

The North Florida Regional
Chamber of Commerce has
;formed the Tricounty
Community Awareness
; Committee both to educate the
.community and get more
people involved in directing
the area's future.
According to chamber CEO
" Ron Lilly, the chamber was
initially looking 4for ways to
.become.poluically active in the
Community, but wanted to stop01
short of actually forming a
political action committee
because the chamber wanted to
remain nonpartisan.
"Because :we cover the
tricounty area, we figured
Swe'd just make a committee in
the chamber that would handle
community issues," Lilly said.
In Bradford County, the
'community awareness
: committee wants to address
:infrastructure issues like
Streets, a revision of the land
development regulations in the
-city of Starke and the
encouragement of continued
Development. In Keystone
^Heights, the issues are lake
levels and the possible
Expansion of the city's borders
and how that could impact
-.businesses. The committee is
.still seeking input to chart, a
,course for Lake Butler.
Instead of, the chamber
.taking, the lead on these issues,
- the chamber wants to get the
piiublic involved, Lilly said.
S The group will also head up
the chamber's efforts ,in
.organizing political forums,
:like the two held at the Santa
IFe Community College
Watson Center for the
:Bradford and Clay sheriff's
,offices, and the upcoming
.political hob nob for
-candidates running for office
-in the city of Starke.
Adam Chalker of Trinity,
:Mortgage in Starke is serving
.;as chairman of the committee.
:Neither the committee 'nor the
.chamber will be throwing its
support behind a particular
.candidate, Chalker said. It's
just an opportunity to come out
'and meet the candidates.
SHe said the committee will
.keep the community members
informed of the issues they
:need to be aware of-and will
assist in acting on those needs.
: That was the purpose of
-Chalker's appearance before
:the Starke. City Commission '

hours in area
House District 12
Representative Aaron Bean's
staff will meet with
constituents in Middleburg,
Starke and Macclenny on the


Aug. 2, when he told the board
its land development
regulations need to be revised
and clarified. The future land
use map doesn't reflect the
current growth spurt in the
city, he said.
"We've got to have that
mirror our current growth or
the growth will not, be here,
which will translate into new
developments and industry not
coming into town, and that is a
vital part to any community,"
Chalker said.
In addition to those changes:
Sthe. citv 'must aliso revise 'its
sign ordinance, both to clarify
its requirements and make
them constitutional. The
ordinance has been challenged
by a company that was not
allowed to replace a billboard
following one of last year's
storms. Sign ordinances in
other areas have been
successfully challenged on
constitutional grounds, and the
city has been advised to revisit
its own signage requirements.
Because the point of the new
committee is increased
community awareness,
Chalker encouraged the
community to bring their
issues to the committee, which
can be ,reached through the
chamber at (904) 964-5278.
Other committee members
include Sam Patel, Bob
Milner, Ken Sauer, Kim

City sponsors
zoning correction
The Starke City Commission
has agreed to sponsor a
rezoning application for Dr.
James Pennington.
Pennington has a buyer
interested in purchasing
acreage off of S.R. 100 to
develop 'another apartment /
complex, but a portion of that
acreage-less than 10
acres-was mislabeled on the
land use map. The property
line was drawn incorrectly to
exclude those additional acres
from the rest of the property,
which is properly zoned for
multifamily housing.
In sponsoring the application
for Pennington, the city will
absorb the cost of the land use
amendment, although
Pennington was told he would

Not to be outdone by the other politicians visiting the area in the past two weeks,
state senatorial candidate Travis Horn kicked off his campaign on Tuesday with a
whistle-stop tour in a painted bus. A former chairman of the Republican Party in
Gainesville, Horn is pictured above flanked by Vietnam veterans Hawk Shaw and
Mike Bradley. Horn, a Desert Storm veteran, chose National Airborne Day for the
kickoff as a nod to the paratroopers who participated in the first official Army
parachute jump and all those who came after them. Other stops included Lake

Auditions are Saturday for


October talent showcase


By LINDSEY KIRKLAND
Telegraph Staff Writer

Cheri Green loved to sing
while she was growing up in
Pleasant Grove. She just
never knew she was any good
at it,
Green sang for fun and in
church, but did not have a way
to develop her talent.
After graduating from
lriadtord High School in 1986,
she moved away from Bradford
Couyrv,
As iareen grew older, more
people told her she could sing
well and encouraged her to
sing professionally.
Green has been invited to
sing her gospel music
throughout Florida and in
Californw.
When she returned to
Bradford Count) two years
ago, Green brought her love
for gospel music with her.
Green and Questar,
Productions of Miami will be
hosting a Questar Productions
Showcase at the Bradford
County Fairgrounds on
Saturday, Oct. 29, at 7 p.m.




Sauer elected

to FMPA's

executive

committee


The showcase will have a
Miami fashion designer and
models, as well as performers
and artists from Miami and the
local community.
Questar Productions, which
has produced the 'Bad Boys"
theme song for the Cops TV
show, will be holding
auditions so residents of the
surrounding areas can take part
in the event.
Auditions will take place at
the Pratt Street Recreation
Center on Saturday, Aug. 20,
at 6 p.m.
All members. of the
Bradford, Union and Keystone
communities are invited to
sing music of all genres, play
an instrument or even read
poetry.
There is no fee to audition,
but an act should be no longer
than five minutes and cannot
contain profanity because it is
a family-oriented show.
Participants should dress as
if they were actually doing a
live show, because a group
photo will be taken of all the
selected performers to be put
on the .event posters.



There will be door prizes
and hamburgers and hot dogs
for just $1.
'his and all 4-H activities
are open to all youth ages 5-18
regardless of sex, race, color,
religion, disability or national.
origin.


Green's executive producer
Derrick Morgan, who produced
Bob Marley, suggested the
idea of an event in Green's
hometown.
Starke Mayor Carolyn
Spooner thinks the showcase
is a great idea for the
community, Green said.
Green is "really excited"
about the show because she
believes talent often goes
unnoticed and thinks this
community event is a "way to
cultivate it."
"I've always had dreams,"
said Green, "but sometimes
we settle because we "don't
have the courage."
Green-who after the event
on Oct. 29 will possibly go to
Jamaica to make a
CD-thinks she is a positive
example of what can happen if
you follow your dreams and
find .purpose in your life.
Because this is a
community event, sponsors
are welcomed.
If you are interested in
sponsoring the event or would
like more information, please
contact Cheri Green at

Great American Trolley


Company changes locale


By LINDA ZCHORR
Telegraph Staff Writer
There's a new set of wheels
in town, but it's not a car, bike,
train or bus. After running an
operation for seven years south
of Starke city limits, one of the
country's oldest trackless
trolley manufacturers, Great
American Trolley Company,
has opened a new facility,
about one and a half miles
north of the city limits.
Owner Richard Adelizzi and
General Manager Adam
Gaskins didn't have to travel
far to find the warehouse that
is expected to provide an even
nicer place to make trolleys
and transform into a business
center to be shared with others.
Gaskins was a welder for the
company that formerly owned
the building, Sightline Studios.
As a past Sightline
employee, Gaskins knows the
mystery behind the oversized
orange golf ball replica that
sits off the road, diagonally
across the road from the trolley
cod pany. The ball was
fabricated by Sightline for
World Golf Village of St.
Augustine.


.The ball emerged from
production a tad too lopsided
to be a passable golf ball
replica, but to the eyes of
Kings Produce it was regarded
as a decent replica of citrus
fruit. As the facility awaits a
makeover, the orange icon acts
as a handy tip to passing
motorists who are searching
for the, company's new
location.
Although just three or four,
months away from the official
opening of operations, the
warehouse will undergo a
facelift that will include
cleanup and improvement that
will turn it into an even nicer
place to manufacture trolleys.
The company manufactures
trolleys for other private
companies and municipalities,
and Gaskins hopes to have
them available for rent in the
future. In New Jersey, the
company provides trolleys for
over .500 weddings each year.
The company is building a
fleet of eight blue trolleys
headed for Maryland, and five
others, built 6 years ago, have
already made their way to
Jacksonville. Others, built last-'
year, went to Brazo County,


Texas.
Last year, the company also
built eight trolleys for
Opryland, Texas. A couple of
years ago, the company built
25 trolleys for Niagra Falls.
Some older trolleys owned by
the company can be spotted in
the streets of St. Augustine.
Those units have been
modernized along the way.
The company has also
provided central Florida with
their first I-Ride Trolleys.
Gaskin said the :company's
first Starke facility has seen
business increasing each year.
The company has about eight
competitors, and even some
bus manufacturers mimic the
look of a trolley in their buses,
he noted. He believes trolley's
are visually more appealing
than buses and that they are
more passenger-friendly, being
outfitted with ADA
accessibility, alternative fuels,
and air conditioning.
The company takes pride in
maintaining the manufacture
ofthe hand-crafted, solid, red-
oak wood interiors used in
their product. Another option
is a plastic interior that looks
like real wood, but is graffiti-
proof and stands up better


--,, ,










Helping to cut the ribbon at the Great American Trolley Company's grand
opening on Aug. 10 were Trinity Mortgage's Adam Chalker, Communities in
Schools' Diana Crawford and Great American Trolley Company's Adam
Gaskins, Danny Powell, Roninie Crosby and Timothy Johns.


against the elements. The
trolleys also feature gleaming
brass railings, one-piece
fiberglass roofs, clanging brass,
bells and ornately-etched glass *'*
-windows. -
Cable Car Concepts is one
of the oldest makers ,of
themed,, trackless trolleys. In
addition to their local facility,
they also has a facility\ in Cape
Nay, N.J.
The trolleys are replicas of
the ones in San Francisco with
the added twists of operating
on roads, on rubber tires and
\\ith standard or alternative
fuel engines. The company can
crank out trolleys in three
sizes: 18-passenger minis, 25-..


seat midis and 37- to 39-seat
maxis. They fabricate
customized trolleys as well.
Cable Car Concepts has
been.. seJliig.- trolleys to
municipalities and private
companies since 1964. Great
American Trolley Company is
it's affiliate and owns and
operates 50 trackless trolleys.
The company offers two
decades of trolley operation,
leasing and sales. ,
The company's first Starke
facility is at 11818 S.E. 21st
Ave. (Forsythe Road). The
second Starke facility is
located at 10852 U.S. 301, on
the west side of the street,
across from Cove Apartments,

Ceremonial Fireworks. -That.-
facility can be reached at (904)

As guests of .the. grand
opening chatted and enjoyed
refreshments, the clock struck
4:30 p.m. and the featured blue
trolley,, which provided a
backdrop to the ribbon-cutting,
glided away en route to Ocean
City, Md.,
The company wishes to
thank Trinity Mortgage for
helping them get the deed
finalized and helping them get
into their new facility. It also
wish. to thank the North
Florida Regioinal- Chamber of
Comrierce for their support.

Florida Governor Jeb Bush presents the Medal of Merit to the Florida National
Guard during the National Guard Association of Florida's annual conference July
30 in Orlando: Maj. Gen. Douglas Burnett, adjutant general of Florida, receives
the award as Brig. Gen. Joseph Balskus, commander of the Florida Air National
Guard and president of the association, participates. (Photo by Debbie Cox,
Florida National Guard Historical Services.)



Governor lauds FL Guard


Either deployed around the
world in the fight against
terrorism or just across the
state in post-hurricane relief,
the state's National Guard
members put service before
self, said Florida's governor in
Orlando July 30.
Speaking to more than 1,000
Florida Guardsmen and their
families gathered for the
annual National Guard
Association of Florida,
Governor Jeb Bush said the
sacrifices made by those in the
National Guard are appreciated
not only by him, but by
everyone across the state.-
"I thank you for always
being ready to serve whether at
home or abroad," Bush said.
"Everyday our troops are doing
great things."
Citing the Guard's recent
call-up after Hurricane Dennis
struck the Panhandle July 9,
Bush said he has spoken to
numerous citizens "who found
hope and relief" in seeing
National 'Guard convoys roll in
to devastated areas.
The governor highlighted
statistics of Guard activations
for the Global War on
Terrorism and for hurricane
relief in 2004 and 2005.
. This year the National
Guard mobilized more than.
2,600 soldiers and airmen in
the aftermath of Hurricane
Dennis in addition to the 2,000
Guardsmen deployed overseas
in the Global War on
Terrorism. Since Sept. 11,
2001, the Florida National-
Guard has mobilized more
than 6,800 troops in support of
operations Noble Eagle,
Enduring Freedom and Iraqi
Freedom.


During the speech 'Bush
awarded the first ever Medal
of Merit to the Florida
National Guard for its service.
Maj. Gen. Douglas Burnett,
adjutant general of Florida,
accepted the award on behalf
of the entire Florida National-
Guard.
"I appreciate, the Florida.
National Guard's service,
sacrifice, and commitment on
behalf or our state and our
country," Bush said. "
The Medal of Merit was
signed into effect by Bush in
May 2004 and is given by the
state of Florida for actions
"above and beyond the level of
duty normally required by
respective military or civilian
position."
Prior to the, his remarks
during the evening banquet,
Bush met personally with the
Guard's junior officers and
enlisted soldiers and airmen to
personally thank them for their
ser''ice.' As he entered'-the
packed banquet room, he was
greeted with a standing
ovation.
The National Guard
Association of Florida
surprised Bush with an-
announcement that he was
being inducted into the.
association's Hall of Fame for
his ardent support of the Guard
and its members.
Normally the induction is
reserved, for a member of the
National Guard; however, his
award was due to his
leadership as commander in
chief. Bush has spoken at each
of the meetings since' he
became governor in '1998,


seven in all, and is the only
Florida governor to do so.

-.- Assessing mobile homes


Very seldom does an individual or
family build a "stick-built" house on
-land titled in someone's name other
than his own, buit that isn't the case
with mobile homes, which are often
placed in mobile home parks or on land
owned by another. Ownership of the
land on which a mobile home is locat-
ed determines the assessment and tax-
ing of the unit.
Mobile homes in Florida are assessed
and taxed in one of three ways. They
are- either assessed and taxed as real
property, subject to an annual license
tax or assessed and taxed as tangible
personal property. Bradford County
Property Appraiser Jimmy Alvarez uti-
lizes only the first two categories for
assessing mobile homes.,
Owner-occupied mobile homes titled
in the.same name as the land on which
they are located, permanently fixed'
and connected to utilities, are taxed as
real property just as other homes are.
Homestead exemption applies in the
same manner. Mobile homes in this
category are subject to appreciation
and depreciation as well.
Owners of mobile homes located on
land owned by another person or entity
are required to purchase a mobile home,
series sticker from the Department of
Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles
and affix the sticker to the home.
Both Bradford County and the city of
Starke require building permits for
installing or replacing existing mobile
homes. The permit becomes the vehi-
cle by which the property appraiser's
office becomes cognizant of the trans-
action and adjusts the tax roll accord-
ingly. ,
Out in the county, a mobile home's
placement is governed by the same
rules and regulations that apply to site-
built homes. In Starke. zoning laws
allow mobie' homes'-o1lVtf'ristricted'
'areas. ,
Alvarez says his office assesses busi-
ness owners and farmers for equipment
owned and used in their operations, but
the average wage.earner pays no tangi-
ble personal property taxes. While
mobile homes may legally be taxed as
tangible personal property if located on
rented land, Bradford County does not
utilize that method for taxing mobile
homes.
In the beginning, mobile homes were
truly mobile, probably 8 feet wide and
very short in comparison to today's 80-
foot long units. The name mobile home
described the unit, since it was truly
mobile, built to be moved as the owner
relocated.
That is no longer the situation.
Homes built in factories, with 2,400
square feet of floor space are mobile in
the same sense that a stick-built house
is mobile. Almost any single dwelling
can be moved by experts in the busi-
ness.
Everyone agrees the early models
were pretty flimsily built, highly sus-
ceptible to wind and fire and subject to
deterioration if not properly main-,
tained. The aluminum electric wiring,
standard in older models, interacted


with copper wiring and started fires.
Those older models would burn within
seven or eight minutes, and be flat on
the ground long before firemen could
respond. Actually, they were dangerous
to live in.
Being poorly constructed, they were
also prone to destruction by high winds
during tornado- or hurricane-type
weather, especially those units without
straps anchoring them to the ground.
Prior to 1992, state building codes
for regular houses and mobile homes
were too lenient and residents paid a
dqar price for the oversight. Hurricane
Andrew brought new and better con-
struction codes and today both stick- '
built and manufactured homes are stur-
dier than before the storm.
Building codes were tightened up,
requiring hurricane clips on rafters and
nails rather than staples in shingles and
tie-downs.
But there was a loophole; the new
codes were effective 90 days after they
were approved. On the last day, prior to
the new codes becoming effective,
builders drew thousands of building
permits, circumventing the law for the
homes built under those permits. Many
people now own homes built after the
codes were written, but that conform to
building codes of the old pre-Hurricane
Andrew days.
Representatives of the manufactured
home industry say 1995 was the magic
year for substantially improved homes
when building codes were tightened up
by HUD, the. Federal Housing and
'Urban. Development Agency. Homes
built since that date are competitive
with stick-built homes in every way
other than cost.
Proponents continued to be defensive
about their product, even as they point,
out that manufactured homes withstand,.
fire as wefl aEsite-built homes or, per-
haps, even better. Codes require mobile
homes to have a minimum of two
doors, windows that serve as escape
exits in case of fire, and the use of fire-
resistant construction materials.
But do they still blow away in a
storm? Well, a tornado will damage a
brick home and destroy small frame
homes, making single-family homes of
any type subject to extreme weather.
However, HUD has moved to require
manufactured homes to meet stringent
conditions. The nation has been divid-
ed into three zones, and manufactured
homes must be built to conform to one
of the zones. In Bradford, mobile
homes must be able to withstand 145-
mph winds.,
Individuals and families contemplat-
ing the construction or purchase of a
home shouldn't dismiss manufactured
homes out-of-hand, especially if cost is
a consideration. New models are spa-
cious and exciting, with every conceiv-
able floor plan, and are available in
sizes up to 2.300 square feet and larg-
er. Financing, similar to that of stick-
built homes, is available up to 30 years.

Gambling addiction a


growing problem with teens


By CHANTELE MARTIN
UF Journalism Student

With the growing hype of
the popular series "The World
Series of Poker" and "The
World Poker Tour," more
teens have been gambling.
"Recent studies indicate that
more than 70 percent of youth
between the ages of 10 and 17
gambled in the past year, up
from 45 percent in 1988," said
Monica Villavicencio in an
* article for "NewsHour Extra."
A gambling addiction is not
only prevalent among adults,
but now more so with youth.
According to, the Connecticut
Council on Gambling, 11.3
percent of high school students
qualified as problem gamblers;
That is significantly higher
than the rate of 5.4 percent for
adults.
"We, as a society, generally
tend to focus more on the
entertainment value of
gambling and fail to fully
recognize the negative side,"
said Jennifer Zechmeister in an
article for the Center for
Addiction and Mental Health.
In the past gambling was
considered a taboo, said
Zechmeister. But as' people
started to play for recreation
and fun, there has been a boom
in the entertainment industry
for the sport. Online gambling
Web sites have increased, and
there are TV shows on
numerous networks.
According to
Gamblirigmagazine.com, in
1997, there were 40 gambling
Web sites, _.and now, 650
globally. As -indicated at
Youthgambling.com, about 80
percent of high school students
report having gambled for
money within the past year, 4-

percent to 8 percent of
adolescents presently have a ,
serious gambling problem, and
10 percent to 14 percent of
adolescents are at risk for
developing this problem.
Addictive gambling among
youth is a problem because it
can affect the level of:
performance in school leading
to dropouts, and many other
negative consequences can
arise from addictive gambling.
According to the Center for
Addiction and Medical,
Health's Web site, the effects
range from financial problems
and strained or lost
relationships to criminal
behavior, avoidance of other
issues, and lack of progress, op
goals.
Most people don't realize the
importance of this addiction. It:
is just as bad as being addicted
to alcohol.
"When you have a gambling,
addiction, all you 'can think
about is gambling,"' according-
to the McGill Youth Gambling
Research and Treatment
Clinic's Web site.
"You-have an uncontrollable
urge to gamble which makes.
you do things you wouldn't*
normally do; just like when
you have a drug addiction.
They see gambling and drugs
as a solution to their problems
when in fact the addiction is in
itself, a big problem,"
according to the clinic.
The American Psychiatric
Association has recognized
"pathological gambling" as a
medical disorder, and,
according to their Web site, it
is more prevalent in those who
have a parent who has a
gambling problem and in
males, though it does not
exclude females.


The Bradford County
Veteran Service Officer
days of service are Tuesdays and
Thursday, 'from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
For inquiries, please call (904)
966-6385.


One of the main problems
with youth and gambling is
that most cannot discern what
is an addiction and what is just
for fun. Most are not able to
see the signs that they or their
friends have a problem.
."As with adults, youth
gambling addiction can,
negatively impact every aspect
of life, from learning and
school performance, to mental-
and physical health." according
to the Illinois Institute for
Addiction Recovery's Web
site. "It can lead to criminal
and. other antisocial behavior.
Studies have found that some
young, problem gamblers are
also fighting alcohol and drug
addictions."
Corey Cheresnick, a student
at the University of Florida,
plays poker online and in
tournaments across the nation.
. He has only been playing for
about two years and already
has won about $261,000 in
tournaments.
This year, Cheresnick
played. in the 2005 World'-n
Series of Poker World
Championships and the Bay
101 Shooting Stars of Poker.
Cheresnick doesn't agree with
the idea of gambling amongst
adolescents.
"Well, first it's illegal and I
don't really agree with that,"
Cheresnick said. "I wouldn't
have done as well in high
school. That's the time you
should be hanging out with.
friends and playing sports.
"Gambling is not something
that kids should mess around
with," Cheresnick said. "It's
not just a game to play in your
spare time. It uses math and
logic. At that age, I think it's
easy to become obsessed with
the game."


A meditation and stress
control workshop is held
every Thursday at 6:30 p.m. at
the Senior Health Care Center.

Staph infections are 'nothing to mess with'


infection. In gyms, MRSA can person' to person through the Clugston. Turf abrasions .on
be spread by sweat and other skin. football players are areas of
fluids that stick to equipment "Bacteria are highly cultured increased infection. The
and then are transmitted from off olf Astroturf," -said wounds need to be cleaned out


and treated. A shower simply
isn't enough to get the bacteria
out.
"Watch how your wounds


and your skin react: after
surgery, or any contact with
possible infection," said
Daniels. "I'm glad I did."


One doesn't usually think of
leaving the hospital with worse
problems than when admitted.
This came true for two Central
Florida men.
Wayne Daniels, 67, and
James Alston, 25, both entered
the hospital hoping that
surgery. would fix their
medical problems, but, when
they left the hospital, both men
acquired MRSA staph
infections that proved to be
worse then their original
ailment.
Daniels first visited the
hospital in 1996 to have a toe
amputated.
"My body just started
shutting down. I almost died,"
said Dantls, who contracted
.the staph infection after his
surgery.
Since Daniels' surgery, he
has been on seven different
antibiotics at any given time
and as a result of the infection
has lost a leg.
"I started at the hospital with
the intention of one surgery
repairing my foot," Alston said
of his experience. "Two years
and 11., surgeries later, I
realized that a staph infection
is nothing to mess with."
MRSA, or Methicillin-
Resistant Staphylococcus
Aureus,, has become a
prevalent pathogen in the
United States. MRSA is a type
of bacteria that is resistant to'
certain antibiotics.
Staph are bacteria that are
commonly carried on the skin
or in the nose of healthy
people.
"MRSA first began to be
seen in athletes, but is now
seen more and more in the
general community," said Dr.
Jay Clugston at the Universit\
of Florida Student Healthcarf
...Center.. ."t..is mqin]l seen o
the skin."
Staph infections, including
MRSA, occur most frequently
among persons in hospitals and
other healthcare facilities, such.
as nursing homes and dialysis
centers,, who have weakened
immune systems. These types
of staph infections are known
as healthcare, associated
infections.
In hospitals,- MRSA has
most commonly been spread
by hand contact. If. a
healthcare provider has not
properly washed his or her
hands after coming in contract
with the bacteria, it can easily
be spread to the next person
treated.
-Daniels' staph infection was
discovered six days after he,
entered the hospital for
surgery. He had already
returned home from surgery,
but the medical staff said his
infection was contracted
during his stay in the hospital.
Alston first discovered he
had a staph infection about two
weeks after surgery. "My fool

precautions that hospitals can
take to control the spread of

wearing gowns, masks, gloves
and isolation control.

acquired by persons who have .

or had a medical procedure are
known as community

"It's a huge hygiene issue,
using dirty towels, not -
showering," said Clugston of
the spread of MRSA in the
community.
"Since the infection is under
control now, I shouldn't suffer
any long-term health effects.
:There is just always a risk of
triggering the infection again,"
said Alston.
"Most staph infections are
.controllable with antibiotics,

with MRSA, these infections
are becoming resistant to many

'05 Bradford High School band will be seeing red


By LINDSEY KIRKLAND
Telegraph Staff Writer
The Bradford High School
band is seeing red this year.
The theme for this -year's
halftime show, "Seeing Red,"
... will bring football and music
fans a Spanish flare with
"Incantation," "Reflections of
Sound" and "Flight of the
Condor."
The band's 70 members and
,-director practice six hours per-
week throughout the season to
prepare for the show. '
They also practice in a
preseason camp during the last
week of July.
The early practice helps the
band memorize their music
and learn field positions.
"We train just as hard as the
football players," said band
director Mike Johnson.
Not only is Johnson proud
of the BHS band work ethic,
but he is also pleased to have
new band uniforms 'to replace
the 15-year-old ones borrowed
used from Middleburg.
The "Seeing Red" theme is
related, in part, to the red and
black uniforms. Johnson is
thankful to the school board
for helping obtain the
uniforms, he said.
The uniforms are one step
towards Johnson's teaching
motto: "better every day."
Johnson's ultimate goal is

to develop the overall music
program.
The school district is
improving with a music
program addition to Southside
Elementary School, he said.
Brooker Elementary has also
begun having music one day a
week, and Hampton hopes to
do the same during the second
half of the year. Starke
Elementary currently has no
music program.
Similar to the middle school
band, the BHS band is in
"major need of instruments,"
Johnson said. The band will-
accept instruments in even
remotely good condition.
He encourages BHS band
alumni who are holding on to
their old instruments to donate
them to the school.
The "Storm shelter"
concession stand at the
stadium, from which all
proceeds go the band program,
can also be used to show
support.
Of course, the band never

teens add to 4-H, FFA achievements


By CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
Two teenagers from Union
County who have already
accomplished a lot in Future
Farmers of America and 4-H
have been elected to top state
offices in those organizations.
Both Andrea Andrews and
Abigail Crawford, who are
each 18, are similar in the fact
that they are excited about
their new positions. Andrews
is the FFA Area II vice
president and Crawford is the
4-H State Council president.
However, they are different
in that one views her election
as a dream come true and the
other never really gave much
thought to being a state officer
until just recently.
u "It has been my dream to be
state 4-H president since I was
12 and it's finally come true,"
Crawford said.
Judy Butterfield, Bradford
County's 4-H agent, said: "I
knew if she set her mind to it
she could do anything she-
wanted to."
Andrews, however, said she
was never one of those FFA
members who dreamed of the
day that she would be a state
officer. She stayed busy
enough in FFA, participating
in various projects and
competing in contests, but
never gave much thought to
running for a state office until
Lake. Butler FFA advisor
David Harris, on the first day
of her senior year at .Union
County High School, asked her
if she was going to.
"I was like, 'Why not,'
because it's an awesome
opportunity," Andrews said.
"That's kind of been my thing
throughout FFA-take
advantage of every opportunity
offered to you."
Charlotte Emerson, one of
Lake Butler's FFA advisors,,
said: "I think for her it was
probably always in the back of
her mind, but not something,
necessarily, she thought was a
possibility. I think it worked to '
her advantage, not having

consumed herself with it."
Now that she has been
elected to a state office,
Andrews calls it an "absolute
honor."
Andrews and Crawford have
both been participating in
various training sessions and
conferences since their
elections. Andrews first
participated in the Building
.Leaders and Strong Teams of
Officers conference, followed
by the National Leadership
Conference for State Officers
in Tennessee. State officers
from Tennessee, Kentucky and
Michigan were also present.
"We were the smallest team
there," said Andrews, who is
one of six Florida officers.
"Most of them had 12 people
on their teams."
Andrews said she really
enjoyed the FFA Leadership
Adventures and FFA Outdoor
Adventures-summer camps
held at the Florida FFA
Leadership Training Center, in
Haines City. She said the
camps allowed her and her


fellow officers to meet other
Florida FFA students and. start
to really feel like state officers.
"We got to begin meeting
people and building
relationships with students,"
Andrews said.
Crawford and her fellow
officers have already gone
through some training and will
attend the upcoming Learning
and Leading' training in
Madison, which will be
attended by eight council
officers and 10 4-H
ambassadors from throughout
Florida.
"The trainers will basically
teach us so that we can, in
turn, go out and teach
everybody else," Crawford
said.
-At the end of this month,
Crawford and other council
officers will begin planning
activities for the first executive
board. There are three
executive boards each year.
The biggest leadership event
of the year in 4-H will be the
Leadership Adventure
Weekend, which is scheduled
for January.
"Approximately 300 youth

"It's onl\ for senior 4-H

decided to attend a club
meeting.
"As I got older, I stuck with
it," Crawford said. "I'm really
glad I did because of the
opportunities I've had to travel
around the nation and to meet
people in the state. The
training I've participated in has
been incredible.
"It's been the most
wonderful thing that has
happened to me. It's a
wonderful organization."

the FFA organization gets
from Lake Butler and Union


County and the advisors who
are involved made an
impression on Andrews, as did
the various contests, which
interested her the most.
"Our county is very
competitive with other
counties and we're very good
at most things," Andrews said.
"Getting involved in contests

members 13 and up."
Andrews will also be
participating in a big event in
January-the International
Leadership Conference for
State Officers, which will be
held in Portugal and Spain.
The FFA officers plan to use
the trip to learn about that
region's agriculture. Andrews
said she and her fellow Florida
state officers feel the emphasis
on agriculture in FFA has kind
of been lost during recent
years.
"Our team has decided this
year that our number-one
priority is to be ambassadors
for agriculture," Andrews said.
The trip to Portugal and
Spain, without a doubt, is what
she's looking forward to the
most this year as Area 2 vice
president, said Andrews, who
has never traveled abroad.
"We'll actually each stay
with a host family with another
officer from a different state. It
should be rather interesting,"
Andrews said.
What does Crawford most
look forward to this year as
/state council president? She
wants to make a difference.
"You can be a president in
-title, but I'm really looking
forward to getting, out there
and meeting the 4-Hers and
traveling and attending, various
district and county activities to
promote 4-H awareness,"
Crawford said.
Crawford's involvement in
4-H began when she was 6 or
7. She said her mother, Denise

organization from a friend and

UCHS Tigers aim to finish what they start in 2005


Editor's note: This is the
second of three high school
football previews. A preview of
Bradford's upcoming season
will appear in next week's
issue. Also, since this story
was completed, Union County
players Austin Emery and
Darren Hendricks sustained
injuries. Emery is out at least
3-4 weeks with a fractured
shoulder and Hendricks is out
indefinitely with a torn ACL.

By CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer

It may be just the start of the
football season, but the Union
County Tigers are already
talking about finishing.
No, the Tigers are not
looking ahead to possibly
putting themselves in position
to play for a state
championship. They are
thinking about what prevented
them from doing so last
year-finishing a team off
when they have a lead.
Union County did hurt its
chances of playing for the state
championship again last
season with turnovers in a 23-


22 loss to Pensacola Catholic
in the regional finals, but head
coach Buddy Nobles and
senior running back C.J.
Spiller both agreed the Tigers
were in a position to win that.


game. The Tigers led 22-7 at
one point and still had a 22-17
lead with approximately three
minutes remaining in the
game.
"Even if we're up by a. lot of

points, we've just got to keep
fighting," Spiller said. "A team
can come back at anytime, no
matter how much time is left
on the clock."
The Tigers may have missed


out on their chance to play for
the state championship last
year, but they have several
factors working in their favor
that could help them do so this
year. Nobles said' he is not
looking that far ahead, but he
acknowledges that this is the
most experienced and fastest
team he has coached at Union
County.
"I feel like if we can stay
healthy we've got a chance to
be pretty good," Nobles said.
"God's blessed us with a lot of
talent this year."
..Spiller, who rushed for
1,415 yards last season, is one


of those talents. Everyone
knows about the speed the
senior back possesses, but
Nobles said there is more to
his game than that.
"I think that's the thing
people miss-how tough a
runner he is," said Nobles,
adding that Spiller has worked
hard in the weight room and on
the field to become even more
of a physical runner.
Spuler will be joined in the
backfield by wingback Mathis
Jackson (senior) and fullback

Football classics slated for Friday


By CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer

Fans .,_of the Bradford,
Keystone Heights and Union
County football teams will get
a look at their teams this
Friday, Aug. 19, when all three
teams compete in preseason
kickoff classics.
Bradford will be the only,
team that will host a classic.
The Tornadoes will play Terry
Parker, a Class 5A team that
went 1-8 last season,'at 7:30
p.m. at David Hurse Stadium.
Keystone travels to
Newberry to take on the
Panthers at 7 p.m. The
Panthers, a Class 2B team,
went 4-6 last season. One of
their losses was 21-13 to
Keystone. .. ..
Union County will travel to
Alachua to play Santa Fe at
7:30 p.m. Santa Fe, a Class 3A
team, was 7-5 last season.
Varsity and junior varsity
teams Will each play a half in
the classics with the exception
of the Bradford-Terry Parker
game, which will be varsity
only.
Last year, Bradford and
Union County met each other
in a classic, only to have the,


game called because of
lightning. The two teams did
get one quarter of play in,
which ended with the Tigers
up 8-0.
Union marched 65 yards for
the.game's lone score. The last
four plays of the drive were a
19-yard run by Jason
Rodriguez, a 6-yard run by
Jeremy Brown, a 6-yard
reception by Jermaine Holmes
and an 8-yard touchdown pass
from Brandon Davis, to Kevin
Alexander. The touchdown,
capped by a pass from Davis to
C.J.. Spiller for two points,
came with 2:13 to play in the
quarter.
The Tigers had five first
downs in the quarter, gaining
90 yards.
Bradford's offense could not
do ..,much. against Union's,
defense. The Tornadoes fiad'
just one first down on three
possessions, which ended in
two punts and one turnover on
downs.
Keystone hosted Bronson in
a classic last year' and the
Indians won 13-0 in a
scheduled quarter of play.
The Indians blocked two
punts in the game, including
one, by Lans Hardin that gave
Keystone the ball at the


Bronson 17 and led to the first
score. An 8-yard run by Kraig
Passanante set up a 2-yard
touchdown run by Wil Breton.
Keystone scored following
another blocked punt later in
the game. That scoring drive
was capped by, a 15-yard
touchdown pass from Tyler
Davis to Caleb Whitfield.
The Indians generated 68


yards of offense and three first
downs.
Defensively, Keystone held
Bronson to 22 yards and one
first down. Hardin had a sack
and Michael Williams had an
interception.
The rest of the classic saw
Keystone's junior varsity team
lose 13-7 and the school's
junior high team win 14-12.

Timber is part of Bradford County man's family tree


By CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer

A lot has changed in the
timber industry-in the past 70
years or so, but one thing-has
remained constant during that
time-there has been a Kite
working in it.
L.J. Kite Jr., 54, owns a
timber company in Bradford
County, following in the
footsteps of both his father and
his grandfather. Much has
changed since Kite's
grandfather, Lester Kite, began
working in timber in the early
1930s.
One change is the amount of
money involved in operating
such a business. Kite said a
few thousand dollars would


have been a lot of money in his
grandfather's day, but now it
takes hundreds of thousands of
dollars to run such a business.
So what would Lester Kite
have thought of that amount of
money?
"He'd take off that hat of his
and probably throw it on the
ground and say, 'I don't see
how you all are ever going to
make it,'" Kite said.
Then there's the equipment,
which is a far cry from the
crosscut saws and hewing axes
Kite's grandfather used.
"I'd love for him just to see
the machinery we've got
today," Kite said. "He'd
probably run. It'd probably
scare him."
Lester Kite moved to
Bradford County from


Georgia. He was a farmer, but
a profitable side business
proved to be cutting cross ties
for the railroad.
"Yellow Britches," as
Lester Kite was known
because of the, khaki pants he
wore, was eventually contacted
by Rayonier, located in
Fernandina Beach, and asked
to cut pine pulpwood for them.
Lester Kite worked a 2,000-
acre tract of land south of
Sampson Lake that Rayonier
owned. The wood was loaded
onto railroad cars that sat on
the old tracks that ran through
Deerfoot Trail.
"He was actually the first
man who sent Rayonier its first
cord of timber," Kite said of
his grandfather.
A resolution, which
Rayonier presented to Lester
Kite, hangs on the wall of
Kite's office attesting to that
fact. The resolution mentions
how Lester Kite shipped wood
to Rayonier from 1939 until
1959 and how he "cooperated
wholeheartedly in meeting his
quota and producing quality
wood and has given
unselfishly of his time and
efforts in furthering good
relations between the field and


the industry."
Lester Kite retired from th-
industry in 1952 and his son,
Lester Kite Sr., took over the
business. Lester Kite Sr.
retired in the 1980s, when L.J.
Kite Jr. took over the business.
Kite supplies timber to
various producers, including
Tatum Brothers Lumber
Company, Georgia Pacific,
Gilman Paper Company and
Rayonier. He even supplies
some cypress to mills in
Georgia.
As you can imagine, Kite
learned a lot from both his
father and grandfather that.has
helped him over the years.
"All of the knowledge that
(my father) had put me where I
am today, as far as him telling
me how to do a deal or work a
timber tract," Kite said. "I
wouldn't have known what I
know today if not for my
grandfather and father."
Kite said he finds the timber
industry, exciting and the thing
that excites him the most is
buying timber.
"It's the excitement of
getting, out there and
everybody doing their
calculations on the timber,"
Kite said. "Whoever can come


Like father, like son. L.J. Kite's father and
grandfather, both named Lester Kite, are pictured.
They both worked in the timber industry, withi.J.


following in their footsteps.

up with the best deal gets it.
It's a challenge."
The industry actually has
quite a few challenges, Kite
said. Those include finding a


place to cut timber in times of
bad weather, coming up with
the money to pay' for timber,
See KITE, p. 8C

to his grandfather, Lester Kite, recognizing him as

Getting ready
to get ready

By JOHN WHITFIELD
Contributing Outdoors
Editor
The fall hunting season is
just around the corner. In our
zone, archery season opens
Sept. 24, dog training begins
Oct. 1 and muzzleloading gun
season starts Oct. 29, followed
by general gun season on Nov.
12. All four of these Saturdays
are already marked in red on
many of our calendars and
many of us have been going
over our equipment and fixing
the little things that broke last
season.
Preparation
We all have our priorities,
but all hunters should do a
safety check first thing. Are
the safeties on all equipment
functioning -properly? If not,

win weekly
bass tourney
The team of Kyle Jerrells'
and Kelly Miller caught the
largest bass, a 6.47-pounder,
and also took first place with a
total catch of 9.26 pounds in
the Bald Eagle weekly bass
tournament on Lake Santa Fe
last week.
Bruce Bridwell and George
Deloach came in second with
8.83 pounds; followed .by
Robert "Blacki and lustih
Russell with 8.10 pounds. Don
House and Keith Chapman
placed fourth with 6.86
pounds. .
This week's Wednesday
tournament was the last prior
to the grand finale, which will
take place Wednesday, Aug.
24. Cash prizes of more than
$3,500 will be awarded.
The tournament is sponsored
by Bald'Eagle Bait and Tackle
in Keystone Heights.


now is the time to get your
hardware to the gunsmith.
Feeders ready? Tree stands
safe and operational? Scouting
done? Food plots maintained?


Shooting lanes cleared? Lease
permission forms signed? First
aid kit prepped? Mosquito
flame thrower ready. (OK, just
kidding, but, we've all felt like
lettin' 'em hold it one time! I
prefer the Thermacell.)
And, possibly the most
important thing of all-are all
the "Honey Do's" in fact
DONE?
When in dangerous
situations, I have always been
a proponent of using the buddy
system. Perhaps a buddy can
help you with all your chores
one Saturday and get all of
your list done. Then, you can
help him the next week.
Besides, there is safety in
numbers when dealing with
dangerous animals.

replace graduates Jason
Rodriguez and Jeremy Brown,
respectively.
Mitchell has big shoes to fill,
stepping in for Brown, but
Nobles is high on Mitchell's
ability.
"I 'tell people there isi't-
much of a difference (between
Mitchell and Brown)," Nobles
said. "He's a quality kid just
like Jeremy Brown is. They're
both short, thick kids who can
run and play. Josh has just-got
to learn to read the holes a
little bit better."
Returning at tight end is
senior Kasey Nobles, who has
proven to be valuable, whether
he's blocking or catching-
passes and running through
would-be-tacklers.
"He's probably our
w orkhorse on offense as far as
toughness and getting things
going," Nobles said. '
Nobles could have been
forgiven if he was concerned
about his group of offensive
linemen. The Tigers lost
graduates Michael Esford,
Jonathon Rodgers and
Brandon Williams, but do
return seniors Darin Hendricks
and Spencer Bell, who has
moved from guard to tackle.
Senior Jacob Barlow has
.moved from linebacker to
guard and he, Bell and
Hendricks will be joined by
two sophomores-Jeremy
Shuler and Kendyl Willis.
Nobles said Bell and,
Hendricks are proven talents-
and Barlow is "a tough nut you
can't crack." However, both
Shuler and Willis graded out
well during the spring, leaving
Nobles feeling pretty good
about the line.
"I think we're going to be
fine as -long as we stay
healthy." Nobles said.
Junior Austen Roberts steps
in at quarterback, replacing
graduate Brandon Davis.
Roberts, however, has quite a
bit of experience, including in
the postseason. He shared
playing time with Ryan Green
in 2003 and started many of
the Tigers' games. ,
"That's the thing we
like-he got that experience,"
said Nobles, who said Roberts
has probably thrown only two
bad passes so far in practice
(as of Aug. 91 -
On defense, Nobles is"
excited about his linebackers,
including Brendan Odom in
the middle. Nobles said Odom,
a senior, is an invaluable
leader, calling him "the straw
that stirs our drink ohn,
defense."
Joining Odom as returning
outside linebackers are seniors
Kevin Alexander and Austin
Emery. Nobles calls Alexander
"a quiet leader" and Emery
"our version of John Lynch."
Then there's sophomore
Aaron Dukes, who has a
chance to be a standout
linebacker, as well, Nobles
said.
"Those linebackers, I think
they're as good as anybody in
the area," Nobles said. "That's
probably as good a set of

linebackers as there is in the
state."
The defensive line returns
senior Willie Oliver, who will
have to play with a cast this
year because of a broken wrist,
and seniors Steven Baggett and
Josh Blunk. Baggelt and Blunk
are each approximately 6-4
and weigh 295 and 280
pounds, respectively.
"They're tough to move,"'
Nobles said. "We go against
them in practice and that really
does help (our offense) out."
Six to eight players are
battling for spots in the
secondary. Senior Chris
Perry's return from a knee.
Injury will be a big boost to the
secondary, Nobles said. Also,
the .secondary returns
sophomore Savonti Edwards,
who is performing well, but
has to stay healthy, Nobles
said.
Senior William Lee' is one
player-who is battling for a
spot in the secondary. Nobles
said Lee had a good spring anid
is performing well so far in
practices.
Another player who should
help out in the secondary is
junior Brandon Shoup, who
will also help out at linebacker
Nobles said.
How the secondary comes
together could be a key for the
Tigers. Nobles said the
secondary was the weakest
area of the team during the
spring and the Tigers already
proved to be vulnerable
somewhat to the pass last
season. The Tigers yielded just
twvo riits f mif6re thah 50 yards-.
last season, Nobles said, but
the team did give up some big
pass plays. One of those was a
48-yard touchdown pass on a
fourth-and-7 play that ga\e
Pensacola Catholic the lead
and .the-win in the regional
finals.
The Tigers will face one
team this season that is
accomplished at passing the
ball-Ocala Trinity Catholic,
which is a new district
opponent for the Tigers.
Union is in District 4, which
is also comprised of Chiefland,
P.K. Yonge and Newberry.
"We feel like we're in the
toughest 2B district in the
state," Nobles said.
Then there's the non-district
schedule that includes Class


2A runner-up Madison County
and Class 2A South Sumter, a
9-1 Class 3A team last season,
which Nobles referred to as a-
mid-state Madison County.
Spiller and Nobles both said
. the tough schedule will benefit
the Tigers, though neither is
willing to talk about possibly
playing for : a stale
championship at this moment
in time.
