annexing

300 acres

By MARK-J._CRAWFORD
Telegraph Staff Writfer-
\'ith the annexation of the Wal-
Mart Supercenter just completed, the
city of Starke is taking up a much
larger annexation on the northwest
side of the city.
Robert and Laurie Mullins have
agreed to voluntarily annex nearly
300 acres of land off of C.R. 229 into
the city limits. Cornerstone
Communities Inc. in turn plans to
- convert--that_300 acres into a new
housing development..... _- .
City Manager Ken Sauer said the
rush to annex the land, which lies
north of 229 and to the west of
Douglas Estates and Green Acres on
S.R. 16, is twofold. First, the city
hopes to submit the newly annexed
land as a large-scale land use
amendment later this month.
Secondly, Sauer said he's been told
that e\ en if the city isn't able to serve
the new community with electricity,
annexing the land before
development should guarantee that
the city can at least collect a franchise
fee on electricity through Florida
Power and Light.
The development would need a
three-phase power line. FPL has a
single-phase power line crossing the
property on the north; but that would
have to be upgraded. Starke has the
nearest three-phase connection, and
that will be the city's argument to the
Public Service Commission for why
the development should be served
with city power, Sauer said.
The city manager said the
developer has a lot of work-ahead
before any construction occurs. A plat
subdividing the land will have to be
submitted, and there's currently no
information available on the number
of lots that will create or a time line
for submitting the plat.

Lawtey.

votes on

.Tuesday

By MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Staff Writer
Lawtey citizens are reminded to,
--get-out-the.yoteinthe city's election,
Tuesday, Dec. 6.
Prior to that election, candidates
will host a political meet and greet on
Friday, Dec. 2, at 7 p.m. in Tatum
Brothers Park. It's an opportunity to
get to know who is running for office
as candidates tell voters about their
campaigns and answer questions one-
on-one. The meet and greet is being
billed as a night of political
excitement topped off with desserts
and coffee.
The five seats open this year
resulted in a total of four races. Two
of those races will fill seats on the
city council. Walter Howard and
incumbent Jimmie Scott will face
each other for one of those seats. The
other will be filled by incumbent
Wayne Massey or challenger George
Shuford, who hopes to make a return
to the city council.
A third seat will be filled by
Jeanette Phillips, who faces no
opposition in the election.
The position of police chief will
also be filled. Incumbent Butch
Jordan is being challenged for the
position by Jerry Feltner.
In the race for the city clerk's
office, Lisa Harley, the incumbent, is
running against Carlton Jones.
Polls will be open at city hall on
Tuesday from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
Remember to bring identification
with you.

ANNEX
Continued from p. 1A
Sauer did say the rezoning
request would change the
housing density to allow four
homes per acre, though it will
likely never be- built to that
density. The property has a
large percentage of wetlands
that will have to be mitigated,
Sauer said. American Indian
artifacts also may have been
found on the site, and that
would have to be dealt with in
accordance to state law.
Other developments
reportedly coming to the city
include an apartment complex
on S.R. 100 for which property
owned by James Pennington is
being rezoned, and a
Whataburger fast-food "'
restaurant and accompanying
strip mall to be located on one
of the outparcels at the Wal,
Mart Supercenter. A sign
advertising the relocation of
Florida Credit Union has
already been placed on site,
and a VyStar Credit Union will
eventually locate across from
the former Wal-Mart location
where a drive-through ATM
machine is now being placed.
Walgreens is still slated for
downtown, although a
November start date was
postponed to December
because of issues with the sale
and closing of the property.
More information on these
developments was not
available as of press time.
Sauer said he's not aware of
all potential developments.
Commercial developers most
often perform a market study
to determine whether or not to
come to town before
approaching the city. Those he
has most often spoken with are
residential developers. In fact,
Sauer said the past several
months have brought around a
dozen inquiries, including an
inquiry about a possible 130-
acre residential development
off Market Road. Rumors
about 100 or more commercial
developments from Applebee's
to Lowe's he knows nothing
about.
Increasing tap fees and
imposing impact fees on new
construction are among the
ways the city is looking to
accommodate new growth.
.Traiseess~an't be set at. an
arbitrary level, according to
'Citf Attorney Terry Brown. A
fee study will have to be
commissioned to recommend
fee levels based on what it will
actually cost the city. to
provide services to new
developments.

Clerk of court,


tax collector


turn over fees


By MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Staff Writer
At the end of his first full
year of operating a fee-based
office, Bradford County Clerk
Ray Norman was able to turn
over an impressive sum to the
county commission Nov. 7.
Article V implementation
turned clerks' offices around
the state into fee offices. In
addition to funding their own
offices, the fees generated by
those clerks of court support
the state's court system.
Excess fees, however, can be
'kept by the county in which
the fees were generated.
Norman said hejis-proud of
Bradford and -ther small
counties thit have taken the
task .in implementing Article
V. Like those .others, he
maintains multiple budgets,
including the court budget and
the budget for the clerk's
office, which is no longer set
by the county commission but
by the state's Clerks of Court
Operation Corporation.
"The good part about it is
we have been able to operate,
stay within the budget, and
also I'm going to return money
back to this board," Norman
said.
The clerk had a check for
$110,184 in excess fees, for the
county commission.
Bradford's contribution to the


JiappIiqt&da* ta a a

A* qc"&addUgIeA


court system, which Norman
sent to the state, was more than
$285,000 in fees collected.
"I'm glad to return some
money back to you. I hope we
can continue to do this in the
future," Norman said, adding
that clerk's offices operating at
a deficit would also benefit
from fees collected and sent to
the state. Some larger counties
ended the year with deficits in
the millions of dollars, he said,
adding he was proud of
Bradford's performance in
comparison.
Tax Collector Teila Pearson
joked that she had come to ask
the board for $1 million. In
reality she reported that she,
too, had a sizeable transfer
check for the board.
To improve the collection
,rates on the solid waste special,
assessment, collection of that'
assessment has been turned
over to Pearson's office. Last
year $624,600 in special
assessments were collected for
the county. In addition,
Pearson gave the county
commission a check for $1,442
in excess fees from the special
assessment collection.
From the other fees the tax
collector's office generates,
Pearson was able to give the
commission $24,525.
, Taken together, the clerk
and tax collector generated
more than $136,000 in excess
fees for the county.

JERRY



FELITNER

OR LAWTEY POLICE CHIEF -
December 6th is almost upon us, and I have tried to make contact with all of you who reside in
Lawtey in person. To those of you who I did make contact with, let me thank you for your
support and comments. To .those of you who I did not meet in person, I hope that you received
my flyer explaining my personal history and experience in Law Enforcement.

During my interview to become a police officer I was asked why I wanted this job. My answer
is "I know what it's like to be a victim of a crime and I don't like it. I've seen friends throw
family, opportunity, and their lives away with drugs. I want to make a difference." You see, if I
can stop a thief from stealing I've done my job by projecting your property. If I can put a drug
dealer in jail, I've done my job by protecting my child and yours, I will continue to protect and
defend you, your children, and your property, as has been my job for the past 17 years.

During my campaign for Lawtey Police Chief I have not made any promises because promises
are easily broken. I will say that as Lawtey Police Chief I will strive to make Lawtey an even
safer place to live. I will keep you, the citizens, informed on what goes on around you, and keep
in contact with all community leaders, church groups, and schools. I will be a voice for you in
the city council and county meetings. I will keep the safety of our children in mind and patrol
your neighborhoods continuously throughout my term as police chief.

Lawtey is a 'great place to live and raise a family. This is our community, a community that
comes together in times of need, a community that cares, a community that is beginning to move
forward. On December 6th it is up to you to-make a change so that we can begin Progress.




Vote Jerry Feltner

on December 6 for Lawtey Police Chief

Because... where there's CHANGE there's PROGRESSI

Please feel free to contact me at (904) 782-1132 if you have any questions or concerns.

"Pd. Pol. Adv. paid for and approved by Jerry Feltner Campaign for Lawtey Chief of Police."

Students at Brooker and Hampton
elementaries recently learned a lot about
helping other people during two Jump
Rope for Heart events. Students from
each school collected donations from
friends, family and neighbors to give to
the American Heart Association. The
students then spent more than three
hours jumping rope nonstop in relay and
team competitions. Students also earned
prizes for the best jump rope tricks,
marathon jumping and other
competitions. The total amount raised

WORK
Continued from p. 1A


"We have to be mature
adults," Spooner said. "We
have to be responsible leaders.
Whether you agree with
someone or not, you have to
dialogue with that person. You
can't do it through e-mail. You
have to get up from your
office, go over to that person's
office."
Commissioner Larry Davis
suggested that the e-mail
accounts be cut off, so that the
clerk and manger would have
to talk to one another.
What followed was an
exchange of words between
Sauer and Johns in which he
complained that purchase.
orders were not being filled,
and Johns said there were no
funds in the budget to cover a
particular purchase order he
mentioned. Then Sauer said he
had no way of knowing what
money was available because
the city's accounting software
: had never been put on his
computer, and Johns said the
software' was indeed there. As
commissioners chuckled,
Spooner said the exchange was
a good example of the
communication lacking
i between the two officials.
Sauer continued to discuss
the issues lie was facing as a
cit\ manager. including his
C \clusion from the budget
preparation process
"The cit is in a fiscal
crisis," he said, pointing to the-
lack of' money for capital
improvements and even the
lack of operatinL capital.
"Whether we pa'- the electric
bill-we get it done, but I
wonder how sometimes."
During budget workshops,
the city was faced with a
deficit that required deep cuts
i; in needed capital
P improvements and relied on a
large transfer of-funds from the
electric department in order to
balance the budget. Sauer had
hoped to cut the amount of that
transfer and look to new areas
to generate revenue.
"Everybody's complaining
about high electric rates, but
we're supporting the general
fund on the back of the electric
'department. How are you
going to do that?" Sauer said.
He apologized for getting
frustrated, but he said he
needed, to know how much
money the city has and where
it is being spent so that he can
do his job and plan for the
future.
Futch said even the printout
given to commissioners was
incomprehensible and asked
for a better reporting of the
city's finances on a monthly
basis. Johns was told to make
sure Sauer had the software
needed to access the city's
financial records, and both
were told to sit down and
resolve the conflict.
Johns complained of Sauer's
inattentiveness to details
regarding what a recent grant
could and could not be used to
pay for.
"He's the city manager and
he hasn't read what the grant
says, but yet the clerk's going
to be responsible and have to
sign off for it? Give me a 4
break. I'm not doing that,"
Johns said.'
That, too, could be resolved
by the two simlng down and
discussing these issues, the t
mayor said.
"If I do anything as mayor
this year, I would like to get
this issue behind us," said
Futch. "I've been dealing with
this ever since we've had a city
manager," he continued, Fi
adding that he's talked to a
dozen or so former employees
over the last two years, some ,
who said they left because of
the clerk and others who said
they left because of the city
manager.
"Sometimes it's not
everybody else. Sometimes it
may be you," Futch said. |
When it came to the Nov. 15
vote, the decision to put Sauer
in charge of purchasing was ..
not unanimous. Spooner cast a .
dissenting vote, saying she
thought it was important for
purchasing to be under the -
manager, but she wasn't .
confident Sauer could handle -
the additional responsibility
given his current workload. ':'
Spooner also said the
employees in purchasing were
worried what the transfer of
authority would mean for their if


German student learns about life in the USA


By MARCIA MILLER
Telegraph Staff Writer
"In Europe, America is the
country. Everyone wants to
come here. It was a great
chance for me," said Tabea
Heinrich of Leipzig, East
Germany.
Heinrich is a German
exchange student who will be
living in Starke and attending
Bradford High School (BHS)
throughout this school year.
"I came here to learn the
language like my mother
language," she said.
She arrived on Sept. 6 and
is living with the Brian Smith
family in Starke while she
attends BHS.
Heinrich said the Smith
family has become like her
own family. She said she was
warmly welcomed and was
treated like one of the family
almost from the beginning.
Brian and Deborah Smith
have two teenage daughters
living at home. Brianna is 16,
the same age as Heinrich, and
Tiffany is 19.
"It's been very nice to have
her here," said Deborah Smith.
"I would encourage other
families' to do the same thing.
My girls are learning a lot
about Germany from her."
Heinrich speaks English
, well'and said that in Germany,-
students begin to learn
English at a very young age.
It is routinely taught in
elementary school throughout
the country. "Everyone, in
Germany has to learn
-English," she said.
Although her instruction in
English has been extensive,
no language classroom can
rival the intensive instruction
a person undergoes when he or

This will be the annual

she actually lives in a country
where the language is spoken
every day.
Heinrich said she has learned
a lot and has had difficulty
only in a couple of classes.
In chemistry, for example,
she has difficulty
understanding the textbook and
the instructor because the
scientific terms being used are
not in her German-English
dictionary and are not the same
terms used in German
chemistry classes.
She has also had some
difficulty in American history.
She said she had instruction in
American history in her
German school, but she does
not know as much as the
students who grew up here do.
She said she had to try to
catch up because the other
students already knew a lot
more than she did.
She said she has had little or
no difficulty in her other
classes, however. In fact,
Heinrich learned a short time
ago that she has earned enough
credits to qualify as a senior at
BHS. She will be eligible to
graduate with the senior class
of 2006.
Heinrich said the differences
she has found between BHS
and her German school are not
vast, but there are differences.
Her German school does not
have a dress code.
"I had to go to the mall
when I first got here and buy a
few new things," she said.'
Some of her clothing did not
meet the BHS dress code.
She also said there are no
cameras or police officers. in
her German school. BHS has
security cameras installed in
some areas and has two school
resource officers. A school

Heinrich said she also finds
the .walkie-talkies unusual.
Walkie-talkies are used by
administrators to talk to one
another and stay in contact
with the office while they are
out on the campus.
Discipline, however, still
seems less intensive at BHS
than it was at her German
school, she said.
"I don't want to make
anyone mad, but there are
some classes here, not all,
where students are not so
disciplined," she said. "In
Germany, students are not

said that a foreign exchange
student coming to a German
school would have answered a
lot more questions about his
or her background than she did
at BHS.
"American students here are
much more open-minded than
students in Germany," she
said.
Heinrich said home life with
her American family is much
the same as her own home
life, however. After school,
she goes to the mall and on
family outings with the

Words cannot express how much
the Edwards family appreciate the
support given us in the tragic
death of my grandson Justin.
The many words of comfort,
support, food, floral contributions,
cards, and just the presence of so
many friends that were therefore
this family during our time of
grief
Justin was a very special member
of ourfamily. I cannot conceive
how much his quick little walk
across my back porch will be
missed, and his always cocky
remarks and his ever smiling face.
He never met a stranger and never
forgot their face or their name.
Justin will be missed so very much
by his family and many friends.
Please pray for us as we go thru
our grieving and trying to get back
to some kind of normal life. Justin
was like my sixth child and will be
forever in my heart.

goals of an Aktion Club is to
provide its members
opportunities for social
interaction.
Wells, Heidi Jones, Pat,
Milner, Chrissy Richardson
and Sheria Tyson had their
opportunity to interact with
Kiwanis members by not only
joining them for lunch, but by
taking turns at the podium to
talk about the club.
"I could get up here and talk
about the Aktion Club, what
they do, how well they do, but
these ladies asked if they could
have a part in the program,"
said Johnnie Mae Mosley,
Aktion Club sponsor.
Wells spoke of the important
role the Kiwanis Club of
Starke, in cooperation with the
Arc of Bradford County, plays
as a sponsor of the Aktion
Club and how the club has
benefited her and others.
"Individuals who live with a
disability often have many
talents, but little chance to
apply them," Wells said. "Too
often they are dependent on
others when they could be

The committee has

she thought it was a good idea
to go ahead and make a

they don't because of the short

"Many agencies do not have

the volunteer effort of the

Richardson, who is the

Disappointment in Lawtey


City officials and residents of
Lawtey were bitterly disappointed to
see work onthe new sewer lines come
toai halt and the contractor, B.A,
Wilson, quit the job. Not only is the
job is unfinished, but Wilson is suing
the city for a number of reasons,
which officials feel are frivolous and
without merit.
City officials began seeking a
federal grant several years ago to
install sewer lines in a community
that was built on low-lying land,
making septic tanks unacceptable in
wet weather and endangering the
health of the populace. New homes
were no longer being built in the
community for lack of sanitary
facilities, leaving officials with few
options other than installing sewer
lines. The city didn't have the
necessary .funds for a major \civic
project, nor did it have a tax base for
raising $2 million for construction.
The city applied for and received
,approval for a $1.3 million grant and
a loan of $832,000 for construction of
a citywide sewer system in early
1999. Almost five years elapsed in
planning before the job was bid, with
Jacksonville Contractor B. A. Wilson
submitting the low bid at $1,098,000.
That bid was revised upward in
negotiations with the city, and was
approved at $2,040,000 in late 2004,
with construction to be complete one
year later, in 2005.
The grant and the loan totaled
$2,132,000, an amount sufficient to
build the sewer system it was thought,
but as the year 2005 comes to a close.
Wilson has been paid $1.3 million and:
the project is 55 percent completed.
The city has applied for a $600,000
Community' Development Block
Grant to .complete the' project land
expects approval. The overrun in
costs is blamed by city officials on the
escalation of-prices of materials used
in construction, and they do not blame
the contractor, even though other
problems exist for which they hold
Wilson responsible.
Wilson quit the job in September
and brought suit against the 'city.


BC citizen is
'afraid of
retaliation'
Dear Editor:
Recently, I attended a
County Commissioners
Meeting, in which one of the
Commissioners made a
comment that several people in.
his district, "said they would
file complaints, but they were
afraid of retaliation."
Well, I can. relate to that. I
filed a complaint against two
individuals in my neighbor-
hood and my daughter and I
have been experiencing
retaliations. My complaints
were about trash and junk in
their yards and large trucks
being, parked and repaired in a
residential area.
I was very concerned about
the impact' of these activities
on my well water and the
quality of our air. The fumes
from the diesel fuel were strong.
enough to smell at our house.
In August, on a Saturday
night our house was egged and
-thre-mailb6x was torn off the
stand and taken. The following
Sunday evening my daughter
was returning home with her
dog after taking him for a walk.
A neighbor who was the

campaign. The volunteer

cash donations-- from
businesses and, individuals
throughout Bradford County as
well as volunteers to collect
and distribute brand new toys


Work stopped more than two months
ago, and the bondholder has assumed
responsibility for completing the job.
Wilson claims the city did not pay
him in a timely manner, but City
Clerk Lisa Harley says Wilson was to
blame for his problems by submitting
faulty invoices that had to be checked
and corrected before they could be
paid.
Wilson further stated that the
backfill was unstable and did not
compact properly. The backfill dirt
was furnished at no cost by the
DuPont Corporation and consists of
topsoil. removed from their
operations. Wilson also complained.-
about the cost of labor and the hauling
of the topsoil.
Under the terms of the contract.:,
Wilson is responsible for repairing
streets that are cut for pipe
installation, and some people are
complaining that repairs have not
been made, but Harley says the streets
cannot be repaired until the pipes are
laid and tested. That complaint isn't.
valid at this time. s!
The city doesn't have to build a.
sewage disposal plant that .woutddni

the additional cost. Because of"'e.

Corrections agreed to allow Lawtey
to cut into its pipeline and send the

subject of one of my
complaints took their pit bull
dog and walked the road
behind her.
On Nov. 12 between 12:30
a.m. and 12:45 a.m. a explosive
device (cherry bomb, or
firecracker) was put in our
mailbox.The explosion was so
loud. the neighbors in the back
and side heard it. There were
footprints leading away from
the box and debris from the
device in the box. When the
explosive device was used,
(cherry bomb or firecracker) we
took this as a threat against our
lives.
You say, well why didn't she
call the sheriffs department? I
did. Every time. It would take
the deputy at least a hour to a
hour and a half to arrive.
For the 'first incident the
deputy did do a report because
of the egging, but he said he
couldn't do anything because
we didn't know who the guilty
party was. When the cherry
bomb or firecracker was used,
the deputy who responded,
didn't get out of his car. He
said that fingerprints would
not be on the handle of box
because powder from device
would have covered them. I
saw no powder on the handle.
He stated that the footprints
would be hard to prove.


on Saturday, Dec. 17, at the
Bradford County Fairgrounds.
"Last year the Starke Lions
distributed nearly $8,000 of
new, unwrapped toys to more
than 200 children in Bradford
County with 100 percent of all,
donated monies staying in
Starke," said, Lions member
Chuck Slater. "Last. year's
success was a tribute to
community involvement and
support"
In. October, any Bradford
County family that would like
to benefit from the toy
campaign should sign up at the
local county assistance office.


I had a meeting with Sheriff
Milner, he assured me that he
would help me. He assigned
Sgt. Mcintyre to arrange a
neighborhood meeting between
all parties concerned. I agreed
to meet with them. I have not
-heard from Sgt. Mclntyre, but
have learned from other source,
that the other two parties
would not agree to a meeting.
We have to listen to verbal
abuse from a family member of
one party. What has to happen
before the sheriffs department
can do something?
As 'long as people are afraid
of retaliation, Bradford County
will never-be cleaned up. It
seems that victims (like us) in
this county are looked upon as
trouble makers, all because we
have pride in our homes,
property, neighborhood and
strong moral codes we live by.
We believe that Bradford
County could be a nice place
to live and raise a family.
I was born in this county,
my parents, 'grandparents before
me. As long as the parties who
are doing wrong are allowed to
do so, and. they are also
allowed to intimidate residents
who want a better place to live,
Bradford County will continue
to be less than it can be.

As a long time resident of
Starke, I would like to say how
much this community means to
me. I am so thankful that I have
had a chance to raise my
children here.
I was also delighted when
we got a Super Wal-Mart. It

policies, I was. glad that it

After the sales on Friday, I

items on sale at Wal-Mart was
a laptop computer. The store
had 32 laptops. That seems like

situation. I was panicked
because I was so far pway with
no way to get to him. We tried
to call his grandfather, who
lives about 20 miles below
Ocala, but he wasn't in.
My son called some of his
friends' at the college who
could come and get them, but
that would leave the vehicle
stranded, which we didn't.
I got on the Internet and
looked up churches in the
Starke area (because my son
said he had just come through
Starke).
I only got one church to
answer, who said they would
try to send someone When
church was over, which would
be between 8 and 8:30, It was
only 7:10.
In desperation, I told my son
to call 911 and see if they
could send some help. They
said they would send an officer'

collide protons, which no other
collider does, and will provide
the largest energy ever
obtained in a controlled
environment.
Five experiments are
currently being built and will
be running on the collider.
Each of them will study
particle collisions under a
different point of view and
with different technologies.
One of these projects, the
Compact Muon Solenoid
experiment, is a large particle
physics detector being built on
the Large Hadron Collider. It
will be located in an
underground chamber at Cessy
in France, just across the


border from Geneva.
Approximately 2,300 people
from 159 scientific institutes,
including the 30 students and
faculty from UF; form the
collaboration contributing to
the $1 billion experiment. UF
is one of the 10 leading
universities involved around
the world.

The experiment is designed
to study the collisions of
protons performed by 'the
collider. Associate professor
Dr. Andrey Korytov of the UF
physics department likened the
matter inside protons to trash
inside trash cans getting
slammed together.
Since scientists already
know about the main particles


inside protons, these normal
particles are like debris, he
explained.
"Sometimes we get debris,
of course, from-trash cans," lie
continued. "But occasionally
we get new particles."
Korytov went on to say that
finding new particles in the so-
called trash is like "looking for
precious diamonds." Attaining
these new particles and
learning about them is one of
the main goals of the Large
Hadron Collider.
One particle of particular
interest is the Higgs boson
particle. When it is produced,
its lifespan is a fraction of a
second. If it could be studied
more closely, many questions
relating to physics could be


answered, including how
particles obtain mass.
The experiments performed
with the collider have several
other goals as well. Different
areas of study will concentrate
on answering many other
fundamental scientific
questions.
An especially exciting
aspect is being able to use the
collider to study theories on
the origin of the universe and
what occurred duritig the "Big
Bang."
"The theory of the universe
is very much related to particle'
physics, because everything
started from producing
particles," explained Dr.
Guenakh Mitselmakher, a
professor of the UF physics


department. "We can make
what they call a mini big 1Iang,
when we collide protons in thl
accelerator."
The information obtained
from such collisions could help
scientists answer many
unknown aspects of dark
matter and the universe itself.
"For us," Mitselmakher said,
"It's an opportunity to
understand what happened at
the very beginning of the
universe.','
Simcha Korenblit, a senior
at UF who works as a research
assistant in the physics
department, acquired data for
the Compact Muon Solenoid
experiment. The resulting

It's routineJ ..o and get a

Bout it, but could you have
the $10,000 hair style?
: Datrickl Cohens, a 2001
graduate, of Bradford High
School, recently competed and
%won The Official Hair Show of,
the Season 2005 presented by
International Hair Magazine.
The competition took.place
on Nov. 20 at John Hancock
Hall in Boston. The different
hair he styled. on several
models won him the $10,000
prize, including several


d i,


styles his

0,000

trophies and the title .of the
finest stylist of the year.
"Peanut," as 23-year-old
Cohens has been nicknamed,
now lives in Atlanta and
travels; to hair shows
throughout the year. However,
for him, hair styling is not only
a job, it is a family tradition
passed down from his
grandfather.
Cohens works at a hair salon
and is scheduled to compete in
"six more hair styling
competitions next year.
He specially thanks his
church family at the Starke
Church of God by Faith, who
have prayed for him along the

festival. A "tailgate" party was
held at the Woman's Club at
this year's festival, but it was
not well attended.
"I don't know that doing an
evening event is ever going to
be successful," Canova said.
The party, which began at 6
p.m., was conceived to
coincide with the Florida-LSU
game, which was going to be
shown on a big-screen TV.
However, the game was

and Canova said not many
people were in the mood to
attend the party after the game
since the Gators lost.
Also, an evening event was
planned .to attract the artists.
However, Lehman said most
of the artists, after a full day of
manning their booths, cannot
be counted on to attend such
an event.
"A lot of the artists just are
not going to come," Lehman
said. "They are just too tired."
What Lehman is interested
in looking at is offering some
type of event that Will draw
people from out of the area.
Lehman said people from The
Villages attended this year's


unexpected discoveries, which
may occur that no one has
even considered.
"We should keep our eyes
open because with the Large
Hadron Collider, we are
entering into uncharted
territory," he said. "If history
is a lesson, usually when we
enter into new territories, we
always ..find something
'unexpected."
KorN tov also emphasized the
technological benefit that can
be obtained from the project,
whether intentionally or by
accident.
"We push technology to the
edge, we advance technology,"
he said. "As a result you have
advances and uses for
everybody."
Mitselmakher agreed.
"When ,-you have several
I thousand smart people trying
to push technology% to the limit,
you get something out of it."

festival after she placed
advertisements in a newspaper
that serves that area.
"It's a concentration of
people who are retired, and
they love to get on buses and
go places," Lehman said.
Other topics of discussion at
Monday's meeting included
possibly moving the children's
area, which has been located
near the public library, next to
the Woman's Club and getting
more elementary school-aged
children to participate in the
parade.
Barber also suggested
making contact with area high
school bands earlier in' hopes


of getting them involved in the
festival. The plan for this
year's festival was to have a
"battle of the bands," but
Hawthorne's band was the
only one that participated.
"I think if they had a year in
advance, they could put it on
their schedule, and it would be
a different story," Barber said.
If you have any suggestions
concerning next year's festival,
including what might make a
popular event for Saturday
night, or would like to know
more information about the
poster/T-shirt contest, please
call Lehman at (352) 395-

USS Austin is a warship
that embarks, transports, and
lands elements of a landing
force for expeditionary warfare
missions. Amphibious landing
docks are generally designed to
use landing craft to transport
troops into a war zone.
Phillips is a 1988 graduate

played and sang country music
on local Chattanooga radio
shows. That sparked Rogers'


interest in country music.
Rogers remembers visiting his
grandmother's house and
peeking through the bedroom

desperately wanting to play it.
Roger's first appearance in
the spotlight came when he
was five years old and in the
first grade. He was chosen to


represent his class in a talent

This humble beginning

A.Z. Adkins Jr. knew what

Adkins, who was raised in
Starke and is now deceased,
kept a diary during his service
in World War II. His son,
Andrew Z. Adkins III, has
taken that diary, added some
research of his own, and put
together the book "You Can't

The book provides the

"There are so many things


they want to know," Adkins
said.
Adkins said he knew certain
aspects of his father's service,
such as the fact that he fought
in the Battle of the Bulge and'
he received a Bronze Star.
However, Adkins did not,
know what all his father went
through-the harsh conditions,
lack of food and constant
fighting day after day-until
reading the diary.
"Reading his diary was a big
eye-opener for me," Adkins
said.
Adkins said the thought of
turning his father's diary into a
book came after his father's
death in 1989. Adkins was
rereading the diary when he
noticed how -organized it
already was. He began creating
chapters for it with the thought
of letting his own children read
it.
"I thought, why not share
this with others," Adkins said.
Adkins did some research
himself for the book, adding to
things mentioned only in
passing by his father in the
diary. It was a great learning
experience, Adkins said,
adding that he now feels like a
World War II historian.

Starke barrel racer Landry still has what it takes


By LINDSEY KIRKLAND
Telegraph Staff Writer
Kids know her as the "llama
lady."
Barrel racers know her as
the first woman to top the U.S.
futurity charts three years in a
row.
To people here in Starke,
though, she's just Kim Landry,
daughter of Sonny and Lane
Tenly.
Landry, who owns and runs
Cloverleaf Farm, was never
really interested in horses until
she was in high school. She
got her first quarter horse in
11 grade.
Like many locals, she
experienced riding at the
Bradford County Riding Club.
She learned the ins and outs of
horses, feed and tack while
working at the Gold Key.
Everything else, she learned
from rider Squeak Larkins,
'who helped her get into
competitive barrel racing.
With a few bruises, broken
oones and a life threatening
injury later, Landry went from
Florida, where there are few
major horse events, to win a
world championship in futurity
barrel racing.
Futurity racing is where the
horses are four years or
younger in their first year of
competition. The horses are
seasoned for one year. This
differs from rodeo horses,
which are usually more mature
and have been trained longer.
Barrel racing -is when three
barrels are set up in a triangle,
usually more than 60 feet
apart, and a horse and rider
must race around the barrels
and make it back to the start as
fast as possible.


The pattern creates a
cloverleaf shape and is usually
done in around 15 seconds, but
times vary depending on arena
size and ground conditions.
Time penalties are given for
knocking down a barrel.
Through Landry's years as a
futurity barrel racer, she went
to competitions while working
at the Gold Key, but something
had to give for her to compete
full time.
Making the difficult decision
to quit her job at Gold Key in
1993 was what she had to do,
and it paid off in a big way.
Landry went on to win every
major futurity in the United
States, becoming one of the
only women to top the charts
in barrel racing three years in a
row, and she won a world
championship too.
Now, she is the No. 2 10-
year rider with earnings
estimated at $943,780 and has
appeared in every major
magazine about barrel racing
and the horse industry. ,
"I've done good for the last
10 years," she said, not
wanting to brag about her
talent.
Landry's ascent in the world
of barrel racing was not an
easy one. Beginning with
horses in 1989, she
experienced a horse accident
four years later.
The 1993 year was going
well, Awaiting an upcoming
competition in Oklahoma,
Landry entered a riding show
at the Bradford County Riding
Club.
Landry's horse bucked her
off. What would have been at
best a few bruises and possibly
a broken bone, turned into a
life-ihreatening accident when
the horse stomped her.


The result was a trip to the
intensive care unit with
massive blood loss, a broken
leg, and a liver and some other
body parts that were basically
split in two.
Landry said the experience
scared her, and she was "too
close to death."
Most people thought she
was going to die, but Bradford
County residents gave her
around 15 pints of blood
anyway. Using her tenacity she
had shown in her barrel racing,
Landry pulled through and
now has a rod in her leg.
Putting the accident aside,
Landry said the toughest part
about barrel -racing is all of the
work before the race actually
takes place.
Training and riding horses is
an all-day job, she said.
"You're stuck to this." Landry
wakes up each morning and
goes to her barn to see what
the horses have torn up the
night before.
When not repairing the
damage, she is feeding horses,
cleaning out stalls, and
unloading feed and hay. "It is
never. boring," she said, and
the "unexpected" always
happens.
The majority of the day is
taken up by training horses,
which takes a lot of repetition
to get them familiar with the
pattern of barrel racing.
She 'described herself as "46
hitting 96: I think I'm 106 at
the end of the day." Not too
long after Landry finally
makes her way to bed, the
morning has begun again and
the whole process starts over,
but it is even harder to wake
up because she's tired or sore
from the day before, she said.
Through it all, she describes


Kim Landry stands next to her barrel racing awards, photos and magazine
articles. On the wall, Landry keeps a photo of herself and a horse named
"Chocalotta," who helped her win her first major championship.


herself as a "very hyper
person," which is evident from
the way she was working and
talking, almost non-stop,
during her whole interview.
When Landry is away from
the farm competing,, her
parents graciously take care of
her animals, including a llama,
goats, two cats, seven dogs,
guinea pigs and 50 horses.
Landry rides for people as
far away as Minnesota and
Canada. Even though in the
Spring she is with her horses in
Oklahoma, she has not toured
as much in the last four years
as she once did.
Her main focus now is
training futurity horses for
people and selling horses. In
the industry, the biggest thrill
Landry gets is training horses
and then watching them do
well.
Since 1993, she has had 65
winning horses. Landry has the
more promising -;horses
,insured.
; As if Landry did not have
enough to do, she sells tack
and her own line of saddles.
When asked if she was
going to give up training,
selling and racing horses


anytime soon, she replied, "I
don't feel like it yet." As long
as Landry can still unload hay


from the truck, she will keep

doingit, she said.
Another aspect of her job
she likes is being able to take
her experiences and pass them
on-to young people who are
making their entrance into the
horse business.
Young people from different
states and here in Bradford
County come to her farm,
which they affectionately call
the "torture camp."
Landry sometimes laughs at
the guys who go to the gym to
workout. She tells them, "If
you come to my gym, I don't
charge."
The kids have to work hard
when -they come to Cloverleaf.
She explains this to parents
before they send their children
to work and ride in the Florida -
heat.
"No doubt about it, this is
about work," she -explained.
She advises young riders to
take time with their horses and
go to people who know about
horses in order to get help..
; The horse business is so
crooked, she said. "When I tell
them something,. they know
it's the truth."
: Landry has helped many
children, through the years
Slea'rn .that they will be
rewarded for hard work and
showed them if she can come
from a little place like Starke
and succeed, they can too.

j Passing the reins
While Kim Landry is- not
_totally ready to hand over her
reins yet, she is willing to
- share what she knows.
Her experience with barrel
racing, and her own two
children and grandchildren,
'-gi\e her the skills needed to
take on the challenge of
helping young barrel racers.
Two of these riders are
Taylor Hull and Mar) Torode.
i.- Taylor Hull, daughter of
r Debbie and Matt Hull, first
rode a horse at her friend Mary
.'Torode's birthday party when
.'she was 9 years old. After the
ride, she was hooked on
Shores.
7, Taylor went on to buy her
,.first horse in 1998. The
'following year she made an
,- appearance at the National
:Barrel Horse Association
World Show in 1999.
I. Every year since, she has
[-competed in this contest. In
2003. Taylor placed second in
barrel racing.
Now 16-year-old Taylor is
home schooled so she can
devote more time to learning
about and competing in open
barrel races.
Like Landry, she is riding
-horses from early in the
.morning until about 7 p.m.
","Everything I learned is from
Kim," she said.
Taylor hopes to be barrel
Racing for a long time because
she enjoys it. Even though
).competing takes up a lot of her
.weekends and time with
friends, she said, "I love it so
-, much I can't give it up."
Mary Torode, 15, basically
feels the same way. She is
often at competitions and finds
it difficult sometimes to make
,,up her. work from school, but..
-. she has been around horses so
long that she would not want
! to give them up.
Mary, daughter of Johnny
."and Tracy Torode, grew up
: around horses because her
,family always had' them and
Usher sister, Megan, did barrel
-racing as well.
SMary's mom went tozschool
with Landry's sister, so the
Torodes knew just who to call
when trying to receive advice
about barrel racing.
Megan Torode said, "Every
time we need help or go to buy
a horse, we go to Kim."
Mary rides horses three days


a week and competes every
weekend. She rides in the open
barrels competition, which
means she races. against people
and horses of all ages.

Despite tough competition,
she managed to be the 2D
Reserve, Youth World
Champion last year at the age


Mary Torode


of 14. She has also been ID
District Youth Champion and
ID Reserve Dixie's National
Champion.
Five belt buckles, two
saddles and about $16,000
have all been won by Mary in
the last year. '

From Oct. 30 to Nov. 5, she
competed in the 2005 National
Barrel Horse Association
Youth World Championship
for teens. She placed fourth out
of 300 to 400 competitors. Her
winning barrel race time was
14.948 seconds on a her
sister's horse named "Flitin
Bug."

Mary and Taylor have
literally gotten off to a quick
start with barrel racing. If
Landry is any indicator what a
rider from Bradford County
can do, look forward to seeing
both of these small town girls
make a big impact on the sport
of barrel racing.

Honorable mention.
That was all Chris
Thompson's junior season at
the University of Southern
Indiana netted him when it
came to selecting the Great
Lakes Valley All-Conference
basketball teams. The 2001
Bradford High School
graduate told the Evansville
Courier and Press he felt that
was a "sign. of disrespect".and
he planned to use it as a source
of motivation for this season'.
It has proven to be good
motivation as Thompson has
averaged 22.5 points and 10.7
rebounds per game through the
Screaming Eagles' first six
games this season.
Thompson, a senior, is
leading his team in both
scoring and rebounding and is
one of the team's leaders in
shooting percentage. He has


made 76 percent of his field-
goal attempts (56-of-74) and
has also made 67 percent (4-
of-6) of his 3-point attempts
and 76 percent (19-of-25) of
his free-throw attempts.
The Screaming Eagles
started the season by winning
Disney's Division II Tip-Off
Classic Nov. 11-13. Thompson
was named the tournament's
Most Outstanding Player. He
scored a career-high 35 -points
and grabbed 11 rebounds in his
team's opening 88-71 win over
Caldwell College. Thompson
followed that up with 15 points
and 12 rebounds in a 76-71
win over Nebraska Omaha and
18 points and 14 rebounds in
90-86 win over Columbus
State for the championship.
Southern Indiana improved
to 6-0 after defeating Central
State 94-68 on Nov. 26.
Thompson had 18 points and
12 rebounds in the win.'
During his junior season,
Thompson scored 362 points


A c








Chris Thompson
for a l11.3-per-game average
and had 293 rebounds for a
9.2-per-game average. His
rebound total led the team and
was third best in the Great
Lakes Valley Conference.


Southern Indiana head coach
Rick Herdes also believed.
Thompson's achievements that
season should have garnered
him more than honorable
mention in the conference.
"If there are better players inr
this league, I'd like to know:
where they're at," Herdes was'
quoted as saying in the Courier:
and Press. "If there are better'
players in the country, I'd like:
to know where they're at."
Thompson, who is Bradford:

The Keystone Heights girls'
basketball team was the victim
of cold shooting in the second
half of a 35-32 loss to

goal until Mary Anne
McCall's rebound putback
with 4:20 remaining in the
game. Between those two
baskets, Keystone scored four
points off of free throws,
missing eight field-goal
attempts as Hawthorne was
able to build a nine-point lead.
Karlyn Reddish made two
free throws to pull the Indians
within 33-31 with 1:41 -left to
play, but the Indians could not
complete the comeback,
missing three baskets after
that.
The Hornets were led by
Breanna Fort and Canvis Scott,
who scored all but four of
Hawthorne's 19 second-half
points.
Jessica Whitfield, who led
the Indians with 14 points,
scored 12 points in the first
half to help the Indians rally
from an early deficit and build
a lead, which they hung onto
throughout the second quarter.
Hawthorne's Kiara Bradley
was fouled on a 3-point
attempt with 13 seconds left in
the first half, giving her the
chance to give her team the
lead. She made only one of her

for a 2-0 lead.
Hayre, the Indians' senior
center midfielder, went down

the middle of the field, but
Michael McLeod, making his
first start at goalie this season,
made several saves.
McLeod recorded 14 saves.
St. Augustine converted on a
penalty kick in-the 54th minute
to cut the Indians' lead to one,
then tied the match on Matt
Brian's shot from 40 yards out.
The Indians still had a
chance for the win when Drew
Wingate, taking a pass from
Gober, slammed a shot toward
the goal in the final minute,
but St. Augustine's goalie
made the save.
Waters, whose young team
is 1-1-3, said the Indians are
.improving with each match.
