Starke Police Department Sgt.
Donald Spriggle said when he
arrested a man Dec. 28 for driving in
violation of restrictions placed on his
driver's license and the man made
threats against him, he paid little
attention.
"His threats to harm me and my
family fell on deaf ears. as do most of
the verbal threats that come from
individuals whom I arrest," Spriggle
reported.
When that same person showed up
a few days later parked outside
Spriggle's residence, he immediately
took the threats more seriously. When-
the man made-further threats and
moved aggressively toward the off-
duty officer, Spriggle reported, "I
feared for, not only my safety, but for
the safety of my family."
- Spriggle's father and daughter
were in a vehicle in the parking lot at-
the time and his wife was inside the
residence.
William Joshua Dodd, 26, of


Graham was arrested two times
within three days. On Dec. 31 the
charges were stalking, battery on a
law enforcement officer, resisting
arrest with violence, making threats
to a public servant, breach of the
peace and violation of restrictions
placed on a driver's license. On Dec.
28, the single charge was violation of
restrictions placed on a driver's
license.
Spriggle made the initial arrest
Dec. 28. Bond was'set at $2,500 and
Dodd w as released on bond Dec. 29.
When Spriggle drove a marked
Starke police car into the parking lot
at his residence at about 1:30 p.m. on
Dec. 31, he said he found a black
Dodge pickup truck blocking his
designated parking space. The space
is posted with a "Police Vehicles
Only" sign.
Spriggle said he stopped the SPD
vehicle a short distance away and the
other driver got out and approached
Spriggle's vehicle, talking loudly.

2005 a trying year for corrections


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor
The year 2005 was one of public
scrutiny for the Florida Department
of Corrections as multiple
investigations and arrests raised
questions about ethical lapses among
employees and administrators.
The result was a commitment from
DOC Secretary James Crosby to
greater accountability from the top
down.
Former Region 1 Director Allen
"A.C." Clark resigned in August amid
news of two investigations, one
federal and the other initiated by the
Florida Department of Law
Enforcement.
The FBI was investigating Clark's
ties to officers arrested for importing
steroids for use by corrections
employees and allegations that prison
officials stole recycling money and
misappropriated money from an
employee fund. At the same time, the
Florida Department of Law
Enforcement investigated a brawl
among officers at an April softball
banquet sponsored by the Florida
Council on Crime and Deliffqueney


in which Clark was allegedly
involved.
Reports of Clark's employment
history and the investigations
revealed accusations of violence,
misappropriation of funds and prison
labor, intimidation and cronyism that
some have come to identify as
indicative of DOC culture. Clark had
a long and checkered history with
DOC and many media organizations
noted that his advancement was
closely tied to the advancement of
Crosby, who rose to the top of DOC
by gubernatorial selection in 2003.
Clark was arrested in November on
felony battery charges along with two
other officers, Col. Richard Allen
Frye and Maj. James .Anthony
Bowen, both of the Region 1
Apalachee Correctional Institution.
Charges against all three were
reduced to misdemeanors last week,
but they still face a, hearing this
month in Tallahassee.,A fourth man,
Bradley Tunnell, was also placed on
paid leave in October for supposedly
threatening those who tried to assist
the beating victim.
Vehicles and trailers were seized
bhy investigators in October, including


from Clark, Frye and Lamar Griffis,
assistant warden at Santa, Rosa
Correctional Institution, after a
former inmate, John Bowers, shared
records showing he had performed
work on personal vehicles and built
trailers for corrections employees
with state equipment. No charges
have been filed yet, but the
investigation is ongoing and is
expected to widen.
Materials for Bowers' work
reportedly came from a state-run
recycling center at New River. Two
former officers, Theodore Foray and
Paul Lamar Miller, were indicted in
June on charges of embezzling from
the recycling center, although charges
were later dropped, according to The
Florida Times-Union. Another former
employee, Bryan Griffis, is trying to
work out a plea agreement on
embezzlement charges after pleading
guilty to selling steroids shipped from
Egypt.
Griffis was one of six officers
identified as part of the drug ring. All
but Griffis and one other have been
sentenced, but none have received
jail time.

Michael Chambliss was
sentenced to a year of
probation and a $500 fine after
providing assistance to
investigators on the steroid
case. Clayton Manning
received three years probation
and a $2,500 fine after
pleading guilty to conspiring to
distribute steroids. Benjamin
Zoltowski was sentenced to
three years probation and fined
$2,500 for -his role in
distributing the drugs.
Oscar Shipley was also seen
as cooperative, although he
was arrested for a second time
in September for violating his
presentence release conditions
for talking to one of the other
defendants. He pleaded guilty
to conspiracy to distribute
steroids and was given two
years of probation.
Marcus Dwayne Hodges
(also known as Marcus
Starling) pleaded guilty to
conspiracy to possess with the
intent to distribute steroids and
other drugs in order to avoid
trial and reduce his sentence,
which is expected this month.
Other incidents bringing
unwanted attention included
the indictment of the director
of the defunct Correctional
Privatization Commission,
Alan Brown Duffee, for
allegedly skimming $225,000
from a fund for maintenance.
In September, it was.
revealed that Clark's brother,
Rick Clark, had been hired as
an inspector at Taylor
Correctional Institution despite
his lack of certification or
prison work experience. He
was demoted 10 weeks after
being hired to an entry level
corrections officer, and the
incident was blamed on
clerical error, but it was
enough to inspire questions
about other family members .in
the system and preferential
treatment they may have
received.
Allen Clark's wife, Lori,
was promoted several times
from 2001-2004, nearly
doubling her salary to more
than $47,500. Their son,
Lance, was hired a few weeks
following his high school
graduation to a position at
Apalachee making nearly
$27,000, although the 33 other
candidates for the position
included some already
working for DOC.
In October, Capt. Keith
William Davison was found
dead of an apparent suicide
after he was fired from Florida
State Prison for conduct
unbecoming an officer. An
investigation had been
launched into a party to
celebrate the promotion of
another officer at the Bachelor
Officers Quarters at which a
woman was reportedly raped.
Hours after that same party,
Christopher Eric Eddins, the
promoted officer, was arrested
at George's Bar and charged
with affray following a fight
during which the arresting
officer had to deploy his Taser
several times to bring Eddins
under control. Eddins later
resigned.
Also in early October, Mark
Michael Guerra was arrested
for grand theft for accepting
payment for a job he did not
perform. Although he was
supposed to be the librarian at
Apalachee Correctional,
Guerra, a former New York
Mets draft pick, told
investigators he was "hired to
play softball." Frye, arrested


along with Clark. and Bowen
for the April 1 assault, was the
coach of that softball team, and
Guerra's supervisor said Frye,
who was in her chain of
command, pressured her to
make sure Guerra was paid.
Clark formerlI coached. and
Bowen, Hodges and others
played for, the same team,
which has been described by
competitors as barbaric in its
lack of sportsmanship and was
banned from competition for
two years. The Gainesville Sun
documented a number of
players whose DOC careers
ended in legal entanglements,
while a number of others
appear to have been rapidly
promoted.
By the end of 2005, DOC
was working to institute
random drug tests for
correctional officers, including
testing for, steroids, a. plan
dating back several years that
wasn't instituted previously
because of the cost of the
program.
Several more corrections
employees were arrested in
connection to another fight at
George's Bar in November.
Sgt. Kevin Barfield, Sgt.
Robert John Bonsall and
Robert Warren Craven were
charged with affray and
Barfield was also charged with
resisting arrest without
violence. Following the fight,
Joey Hill was arrested for
disorderly conduct and
trespass after warning, and
Edwin Lee Johnson was
charged with trespass after
warning and resisting arrest,
without violence.
November also saw the
release of a report compiling
more than 540 complaints of
sexual harassment,
discrimination and retaliation
by female employees,
including one female guard
who said she was called away
from work and gang-raped by
five prison administrators in a
Lake Butler cemetery. DOC
has been accused of covering
up such allegations by six
women suing the department
for sexual harassment.
Crosby revealed a new
policy on acts of aggression in
November that will guarantee
any DOC staff member
arrested on or off duty will be
placed on administrative leave
pending a review of the
incident. Employees could be
kept away from work until
criminal charges are resolved
arid those determined to be

offenders could face
reprimand, suspension or
dismissal.
Crosby told reporters that
-unbecoming conduct would
not be tolerated in the system
and that poor publicity related
to such incidents caused him to
evaluate the way. DOC had
been handling such incidents'
At the same time, he
recognized most -of the,
agency's employees as
dedicated public servants.
Crosby formed an 11-
member review team to
recommend further reforms to
the prison system, which
include specialized training in
ethics, domestic. violence,
sexual harassment, etc. A final
report is expected this month.
Crosby, himself, is not
facing any charges, although
investigators removed a leaf
blower, firewood rack and
ladder from his home in the
ongoing probe of alleged
misuse of prison labor and
property.

"I.was then able to identify
the driver as William Dodd,"
reported Spriggle.
Spriggle stepped out of the
SPD vehicle and Dodd
allegedly continued his threats.
Spriggle said he called his wife
on his Nextel to advise her to
.remain inside the nearby
residence and he also advised
his father and daughter to stay
inside the nearby vehicle.
Spriggle said Dodd
continued to make threats
.against him and he advised
Dodd that he was being placed

'threatening a police officer.
Dodd allegedly continued to
behave aggressively and talk
angrily, so Spriggle called SPD
Capt. Harvey Rhoden, who
ordered another officer
dispatched to the scene.
Spriggle said Dodd lunged
toward him and hit him several
times before Spriggle gained a
headlock and forced Dodd to
the ground. Dodd allegedly
continued to struggle to hit the
officer, while Spriggle

arrived on the scene.
Murray reported that Dodd

Rosier may


replace Sanders


on the bench


Four candidates have been
selected as possible
replacements for Circuit Judge
Elzie Sanders, and their names
are expected to be* submitted
for consideration to the
governor's office by the end of
this week.
Among the candidates is
attorney Phyllis Rosier, who
was also considered, along
with Starke attorney and
.Bradford County.
Commissioner John Cooper, as
a potential replacement for a
new judgeship in the Eighth
Judicial Circuit created two
years ago because of increased
caseload. That seat on the
bench eventually went' to
James Nilon of Alachua
County.
Making the list alongside
Rosier to replace Sanders are
G.'-'ffre', Fleck, Mel Bessinger
and Steve Pennipecker.
Sanders is the only judge
from Bradford County on the
circuit bench, so interest in
preserving diversity on the
bench may work in Rosier's
favor.
In an article earlier this year,
Rosier discussed her
experience. She grew up in
Bradford County as Phyllis
Miller and attended Bradford
High School. She graduated
with honors from the
University of Florida School of
Law in 1981.
Rosier worked as an
assistant state attorney in Lake
City and Live Oak (Third
Judicial Circuit) at two
different times that
encompassed most of the
period from 1981 to 1994.
In 1994, she 'decided to
come home to Starke and open
her own practice, located at the
corner of Call ahd Walnut
streets in Starke. Rosier also
maintains a part-time practice
in Macclenny which is open
two days per week.
'Rosier has served as school
board attorney in Bradford
County since 1995 and 'has
-.een in',oled in cases.. th.at.
'.. uld be o'f the same type as
'those that would be heard by a
circuit judge.
As school board attorney she
wasd involved in cases that
dealt with Florida's Sunshine
Law-the law that provides
expanded public access to
governmental records. She was
also involved in lengthy and
complicated cases dealing with
large construction projects.
"I spent a lot of time dealing
with construction law after
Starke Elementary was built.
That will also be valuable
experience, if I am the one
ultimately chosen for the seat,"
she said.
She has dealt with cases
involving Civil Rights issues
and. equal employment
opportunities issues for both
governmental and private
clients.
The circuit bench hears
cases involving family law,
probate, guardianship, juvenile
cases, etc. Rosier has had
ample experience in most of
these areas.
"I've handled all manner of
cases that might come before a


Phyllis Rosier
circuit judge, from criminal, to
civil, to probate, to juvenile,"
she said.
When asked what she felt
she could bring to the bench if
she is chosen for the seat,
Rosier said her years of
experience and her good,
judgment would be positives.
"Good judgment is a product
of many things, including the
way you were raised, your
religious values,, the
community you grew up in, the
education you received and the
work experience you have
had," she said.
Rosier received the 1998
Florida Bar President's Pro
Bono Service Award for the
Eighth Judicial Circuit. This is
in recognition of her
volunteering attorney services
without cost to various people
and organizations.
Rosier is a member of both
the Baker County Chamber of
Commerce and the North
Florida Regional Chamber of
Commerce. She is a former
president of. the Business and
SProfessional Women of Starke
and was chosen 'as that
organization's Woman of the
Year in 1994. She is a member
of the-Bradford High School
Alumni Association, the Starke
Women's Club, the Baker
County Council on Aging and
the Bradford County
Education Foundation.
. She is also a member of the
First United Methodist Church
of Starke where she has served
in a number or capacities,
including on the Staff Pastor
Parish Committee, the Board
of Trustees and the endowment
and finance committees.
Once :the names of the
candidates are submitted to
Gov. Jeb Bush, he will 'have 60
days to make a selection.



BMS PTO

The Bradford Middle School

Floridians are finding
authoritative, reliable answers
to their questions online using
a free reference service, Ask a
Librarian. The service extends
the reach of traditional library
reference services by linking
Internet users to live, one-on-
one librarian assistance. Ask a
Librarian features live chat and
the ability to navigate the Web
together. Usage of the service
is rapidly increasing, topping
2,000 sessions each month and
growing.
"Ask a Librarian is a great
service for anyone who has a
question or who needs help
finding information on the
Web," notes Vince Mariner,
the -service's statewide
coordinator. "There is no cost
to use the service, and it's
staffed by librarians who are
skilled in finding information.
Students, small business
owners, seniors, home
schoolers, teachers, anyone
can benefit from this
invaluable resource."
Librarians from 88 public,
academic and special libraries
throughout Florida are
available for live chat at
www.askalibrarian.org, be-
tween 10 a.m. and 10 p.m.,
Sunday through Friday, and 10
a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday.
Without ever leaving their
homes, schools or offices,
Floridians with Internet access
can ask a librarian almost any
question imaginable. In
addition to live chat, users can
submit questions via e-mail 24
hours a day, seven days a
week.
Ask a Librarian is part of the
Florida Electronic Library,
which is a collection of free
databases and live reference
services available to all Florida
residents. Ask a Librarian is a
collaborative service jointly
administered by the College
Center for Library Automation
and the Tampa Bay Library
Consortium. It is funded
through a Library Services and
Technology Act grant
administered by the Florida
Department of State Division
of Library, and Information
Services.

Starke looks forward to new projects in 2006. Altrusa

BY LINDSEY KIRKLAND Marl Supercenter and another hosting


Telegraph Staff Writer

Starke officials have a vision
for the future of the city. but
there's one thing standing in the
way.
Money.
In an interview with City
Clerk Linda Johns and City
Manager Ken Sauer, Johns said
there are many projects that
- hiey-will kick off and others
they hope to finish in 2006, but
finding the funding for them,
including health care and
_etiremcnt accounts, will take
time.
Health care costs are high for
city employees and everywhere
at the moment, which puts quite
a burden on the city, Johns said.
The city wants to continue
providing health care for its
workers, but _canQot anfi e-to-
-- useamost one-half of its tax
money on this.
The retirement-fund-.or-eity-
employees is becoming an issue
--aswell.-- -
The city's retirement fund is
divided into three parts for fire.
"police and a general fund.--
There are 34 general retirees,
five fire and six police.
Because it is not reaching the
8 percent investment goal, the
city then has to absorb the
costs.
"It's costing ithe city a lot
right now to have retirement
accounts," Johns said. "The city
is going to have to look at that
in the future for our retirees."
To ease the cosQofLetirees,
the city has begun using DROP
(the Defined Retirement Option
Program).
DROP will allow the.city to

after them, following them to
every stop they made. She
could not get enough of the
joyful noise the) made.
The people she was
following were the "Joyful
Noisemakers," a group of local
people that visits both Windsor
Manor and Bradford Terrace
nursing homes on Tuesdays,
playing and singing old songs
and hymns.
"We try to just make the
people that we're visiting that
day feel special," said Anne
Miller, who plays guitar and is
one of the .group's...original
members.,
The group made Brooks feel
special this past Tuesday as
she sang along, then followed
the group to hear more music.
That is not unusual for Brooks.
One of the group members
joked that Brooks was one of
their groupies. -
Another resident probably
best summed up what Brooks
was thinking when -she
remarked, 'You didn't play
long enough, but I enjoyed it."-
The group began more than
three years ago. Miller, a
retired teacher in Bradford
County, had a list of things she
wanted to do during her
retirement, one of which was
to learn to play the guitar.
She. was not content just
learning to play for her own
enjoyment, however.
"I just really wanted to use
the music in some way to..bring
happiness and joy to people,"
Miller said.
That led to Miller, with the
"'help of her brother-in-layw,
Mike Goldwire, placing a
notice in her church (First
United Methodist Church of
Starke) bulletin that a group
was being formed to visit
nursing homes and shut-ins.
Kay McKinley. Be'tt
Montford and Jean Perkins
responded. Eventually, -the


group received more members:
Connie Best, Barbara
Burbridge, Bob Clayton, Flo
Danger, Marie Grant, Betsy
Meng and Mary Stephens
(Danger is no longer in the
group because she moved
away).
- As the church bulletin noted,
the group did start out visiting.
both nursing home residents
and shut-ins. However, time
constraints forced the group to
concentrate solely on nursing
home residents.. Miller did say
that the group is now going to
start visiting shut-ins and

Living Facility and the Senior
Center during months that

Man arrested for stalking, battering law enforcement officer


By MARCIA MILLER
Telegraph Staff Writer
Starke Police Department
Sgt. Donald Spriggle said
when he arrested a man Dec.
28 for driving in violation of
restrictions placed on his
driver's license and the man
made threats against him, he
,paid little attention.

"His threats to harm me and
my family fell on deaf ears, as
do most of the verbal threats
that come from individuals
whom I arrest," Spriggle


reported.
When that same person
showed up a few days later
parked outside Spriggle's
residence, he immediately took
the threats more seriously.
When the man made further
threats and moved aggressively
toward the off-duty officer,
Spriggle reported, "I feared
for, not only my safety, but for
the safety of my family."
Spriggle's father and
daughter were in a vehicle in
the parking lot at the time and
his wife was inside the
residence.
William Joshua Dodd, 26, of


Graham was arrested two
times within three days. On
Dec. 31 the charges were
stalking, battery on a law
enforcement officer, resisting
arrest with violence, making
threats to a public servant,
breach of the peace and
violation of restrictions placed
on a driver's license. On Dec.
28, the single charge was*
violation of restrictions placed
on a driver's license.
Spriggle made the initial
arrest Dec. 28. Bond was set at
$2,500 and Dodd was released
on bond Dec. 29.

Murray reported that Dodd
continued to fight both officers
as they attempted to handcuff
him. He allegedly struck both
officers more than once as they
struggled to subdue him.
Spriggle and Murray finally

once more and were able to
handcuff him.
SPD Sgt. Bob Melton

at about 1:30 p.m. on Dec. 31,
he said he found a black
Dodge pickup truck blocking
his designated parking space.
The space is posted with a
"Police Vehicles Only" sign.
Spriggle said he stopped the
SPD vehicle a short distance
away and the other driver got
out and approached Spriggle's
vehicle, talking loudly. "I was
then able to identify the driver
as William Dodd," reported
Spriggle.
Spriggle stepped out of the
SPD vehicle and Dodd
allegedly continued his threats.
Spriggle said he called his wife
on his Nextel to advise her to
remain inside the nearby
residence and he also advised
his father and daughter to stay
inside the nearby vehicle.
Spriggle said Dodd
continued to make threats
against him and he advised
Dodd that he was being placed
under arrest for stalking and
threatening a police officer.
Dodd allegedly continued to
behave aggressively and talk
angrily, so Spriggle called SPD
Capt. Harvey Rhoden, who
ordered another officer
dispatched to the scene.
Spriggle said Dodd lunged
toward him and hit him several
times before Spriggle gained a
headlock and forced Dodd to

Dodd, but had no idea Dodd
was coming to his residence

Murray took Dodd to the

Thanks to

and city
Dear Editor:
I would like to compliment
the downto.wn- -Keystone
S-Heigfiis merchants and the city
of Keystone Heights for the
great job they have done this
year with their Christmas and
holiday displays. They have
never looked better.
On the other hand, the
owners of the Keystone Village
Shopping Center have seemed
not to notice the season and
have let the place spiral into
shabbiness and disrepair to the
point that, it has become a
disgrace. The owners/occupants
seem to have no pride in their
places of business or their
community.

Remember to
do research
before signing
contract
Florida Agriculture and
Consumer Services
Commissioner Charles H.
Bronson is urging consumers
to get some background
information on health clubs
prior to signing a contract.
Many people put losing
weight and getting into shape
at the top of their New Year's
to-do list. But unless they do
some research in advance,, the
only thing they may lose is
money. State law provides
some protections for
consumers, and they should be
aware of what those are.
The Florida Department of
Agriculture. and Consumer
Services administers the Health
Studio Law, which spells out
the rights and responsibilities
of the gyms and consumers. It
also provides some recourse
against health clubs that do not
follow the law. All health
clubs are required to register
with the department's Diyision
of Consumer Services and
many must also post a bond
that can -be used to repay
members if the facility goes out
of business. .In 2005. the
department collected $67,000
in fines against health clubs for
various violations of the
Health Studios Law, including
registration problems and
advertising.,
There are 1,720 health
studios registered with the
department, an increase of 379
over last year; -149 clubs went
out of business over the same
time period.
"Joining a health club can be
a positive but costly endeavor,
and it's important that people
know as much as possible
about a particular facility
before entering into a contract,"
Bronson said. "They need to
know exactly what they are
getting for their money and
what steps they can take to
Seek redress if something goes
wrong."
The law provides consumers
with the right to cancel a
contract for certain reasons
including: cancellation within
three days of signing a
contract, exclusive of holidays
ando weekends,,':butt it m~t .be
done in 'writing;'if'the faqjlitiv
moves more than five miles

and fails to provide, within 30
days, a facility of equal quality
located within five miles; if a
person becomes physically
unable to use most of the
services for which they
contracted, until the disability
ends.
Bronson also recommends
consumers follow these tips
before signing a contract:
Call the Department's
helpline at- 1-800-HELPFLA
(1-800-435-7352) to make sure
the' health studio is registered
and to check its complaint
history.
Find out if the studio has
posted a bond with the
Department, .as most that .
collect fees in advance are
required to do.
Prior to joining, ask
about the club's cancellation
policy should you move or
become physically unable to
use the facility.:
Before signing up, visit
the club during the hours you
intend to use it to determine
whether it is overcrowded and
the equipment you plan to use
is available.
Find out if any of the
services offered require an
additional fee.
Bronson said it is important
to read proposed contracts
thoroughly and make sure you
get all promises made by club
personnel in writing. Ask
questions to make sure you
understand the terms of your
membership.

FWC
investigates
dead
alligators in
swamp
A large number of dead
alligators found in the Mallory
Swamp. area in Lafayette
County has the Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC)
concerned.
According to Capt. Roy
Brown, area supervisor for
Lafayette County, numerous
alligators have been found shot
and floating along the North
and South Canal grades'and
the L.A. Bennett grade which
borders private lands and the
Mallory .Swamp Wildlife

Management Area.
"We believe these are
random shootings. No parts are
takpn after the animals are
killed," Brown said. "This is a
useless and wasteful crime that


tarnishes the image of ethical
hunters."
In the past year, FWC
officers have arrested six:
subjects for killing five
alligators in the general area. In
those cases, however, the
suspects were apprehended
with alligators or parts and
thought to be unrelated to this
latest- spree, according to
Brown.
"Unfortunately, there ard
some dog hunters who may
believe that by killing
alligators, the potential threat
to their hunting dogs is
eliminated," Brown said.
However, according to Allan
Woodward, FWC biologist,
alligators in north Florida eat
very little during the fall and
winter months and pose little
threat to dogs.
"When water temperatures
drop below 60 degrees, the
gators stop feeding and become
semi-dormant. This usually
occurs in early December. They


can come out and bask in the
sun during, a warm front, bul
they don't eat. during the
winter," Woodward explained.
Alligators are a protected
species and are listed as
"Species of Special Concern.":
It is a third-degree felony to
kill an alligator and punishable
up to a $5,000 fine and/or five.
years imprisonment.
Anyone with knowledge
about what happened to these
alligators can call the FWC's
Wildlife Alert hotline toll free'
at 1-888-404-3922. Callers can
remain anonymous and are;
eligible for a reward of up tgT
$1,000 if the information lea.s
to an arrest.

fifth Tuesday of those months.
The group started out
visiting people who were
members of Starke's First
United Methodist Church-all
of the Noisemakers, with the
exception of Stephens, are
members there. The group's
list of visitors expanded when
group members asked the
nursing home staff members
which residents did not receive
a lot of visitors.
"We'll sing to anybody,"
Miller said, adding that it's no
problem if a resident does not
want to see them on a
particular day or does not feel


well.
"It doesn't hurt our
feelings," Miller said. "We just
go on to the next one (on our
list)."
Clayton, who joined the
group two years ago at the
urging of Miller (he plays the
*mandolin and Native
American flute), said he
receives a blessing from
visiting with people at the
nursing homes-especially
those who are in the
Alzheimer's unit at Bradford
Terrace.


"Those people who don't
have short-term
memories-boy, they can
remember the hymns and
everything," Clayton said.
"They sing along. Some of
those who used to play piano
go through the motion with
their fingers while we're
singing."
Miller said a lot of thanks go
to the staff members at the
nursing homes who have been
helpful in supporting the
Joyful Noisemakers.
Then, there are the residents


themselves who deserve
thanks. Miller said she and the
other group members have
learned a lot from those people
and she wished more people
would take the opportunity to
visit them.
Miller said she receives a
blessing from the nursing
home residents and everyone
else in the Joyful Noisemakers
shared the same thought.
"They bless us more than we
do them," Clayton said.

Sanders stepping down from bench
..


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer

Starke resident Elzie
Sanders has found out what a
difference a robe can make.
The long-time Eighth
Judicial Circuit judge has
bumped into people outside of
the courtroom who have
trouble remembering who he
is, though they once stood
before him in a courtroom.
Sanders Will be spending a
lot less time wearing his
courtroom attire as he plans to
retire, his last day falling on
Feb. 28.
That will bring an end to an
approximate 33-year stint as a'
full-time judge at both the
county and circuit levels.
Sanders said he originally
began pondering retirement
three years ago, but it always
seemed that something came
up, resulting in him postponing
it. One of those things.was the
expansion of the Bradford
County courthouse, which he
was directly involved with.
"I wanted to see that project
through," Sanders said. "It's

Walnut Street ever since they bought the house in 1972.



Old house a labor of love


for Elzie, Sandy Sanders


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer

The project began one year
before he first served as a
judge and it will continue after
he steps down in retirement.
.... -Eliie Sanders, a judge in the
Eighth Judicial Circtiit, and his
wife, Sandy, purchased their
house on Walnut Street in
downtown, Starke in 1972.
SSince that time, the two have
been working on the house,
renovating it and making
improvements to it.
"This house here has been
an ongoing project for about
30 years-us renovating it and
doing a lot of the work
ourselves," Elzie Sanders said.
"We'll continue to do that."
Whatever work Sanders,
who is retiring Feb. 28 (see
related story), does now,
though, figures to be on a
much smaller scale than in the
past.
"Back when I was much
younger, I would take on
projects that were more
demanding than I'm willing to
do right now," Sanders said.
"You get a little older and
you're less inclined to stick
with these big projects. It's
good to tackle those when
you're young."
Sanders and his wife did
have plenty of big projects to
tackle when they were
younger, as Sanders said the
house was in pretty bad
condition. They, like many of
the owners of other houses on
Walnut Street, moved in,
living amidst whatever work


they were doing on the home
at the time.
A lot of that work was done
by Elzie and Sandy. They put
in new ceilings and new pine
flooring, hung wallpaper and
painted.
. It would have been
expensive if the couple had
hired somebody to do all of the
work.
"I'm pretty good at basic
electrical and plumbing and all
that. kind of stuff," Sanders
said. "I like doing it."
Sanders said he had to get a
little creative when it came to


hanging wallpaper over his
stairwell, having to start at a
height of two stories. He had
to place a ladder on the stairs
and lean it against the wall.
It must have worked out OK
for Sanders, though Sandy said
the couple made a mistake in
doing the wallpaper when they
did.

"We waited until we got the
wallpaper up and then decided
to redo the floors," Sandy said.
"Then, of course, the

Sanders said. "I.practiced with
him for two years; then went
out on my own and practiced
for two years."
The Bradford County judge
at the time was Theron Yawn
arnd he had his eyes on
becoming a circuit judge.
Therefore., Yawn :urged
Sanders to consider running
for county judge.
Sanders agreed to do so,
though he admits he was not
really expecting to win the
election. Instead, he saw it as
an opportunity to boost his
profile in the county and, in
turn, benefit his law practice.
Sanders said the law
profession was highly
regulated then and attorneys
.were not allowed to advenise.
I "My first thought %%as,
'Well, if I run for public office,
it will help my practice
because every body will know
who I am.' I went into it with
the idea 1 probably wouldn't
win because I wasn'tt from
Bradford County," Sanders
said.
Still, Sanders- took the
election seriously as he and his
wife both prayed about it.
Sanders won and took office in
January 1973
"I think It vas my destiny' to
be a judge." Sanders said.
A change "as taking place
at that time in that a new state
law-Article V-eliminated
municipal and smaller courts
throughout the state. That
meant positions of county
judges, which had been part-
time positions, became full-
time positions. Therefore
Sanders would not be
practicing law on the side as
Yawn had done when he was
county judge.
Sanders also had the,


3 years

opportunity to sit as a circuit
I judge shortly after being
elected because of the death of
Circuit Judge George Patton.
"It left a vacancy on the
circuit bench," Sanders said. "I
did a lot of coverage for the
circuit court in Bradford
County and also went to
Alachua County quite a bit to
Serve 'both as backup for
county court and circuit court."
Sanders served as Bradford
County judge until September
1981, when he was appointed
to the circuit bench by Gov.
Bob Graham. He was the chief
judge of the circuit from 1990
through 1995.
Every case is different and
most are routine in nature,
Sanders said, but he said there
are certain cases that stand out
in his mind and, he's sure, in
the minds of other judges as
well--serious criminal cases.
Sanders handled a number
of murder cases, including the
death of UF professor Howard
Appledorf and the deaths of
employees at the Steak 'n'
Shake in Gainesville, but he
has never been faced with
having to impose the death
penalty. In every capital case
he has presided over, the jury
has recommended a life
sentence or the state backed
off of requesting the death
penalty.
"I've been fortunate,"
Sanders said.
There are other types of
cases that stand out in Sanders'
mind-those centered on the
adoption of children. Sanders
said they are the only cases
where there are no losers and it
is rewarding to see a child, that
has been the ictim of abuse

FIRE
Continued from p. 1C

They all have to take almost
two years of classes to become
a firefighter and emergency
medical technician (EMT).
"All firefighters are EMTs,"
said Waters.
Besides having this semester
of training at a community
college, the firefighters have
different specializations that
were learned through
additional 40-hour courses.
Starke firefighter David
Young and others are
paramedics, which requires
one more year of training than
an EMT.
Many of the firefighters can
perform fire inspections, high
.level rescues, confined space
rescues and are technicians
with the 1-county regional
hazardous materials team.
When they're not putting
their technical knowledge to
use during their 56-hour work.
weeks, the Starke firefighters
find other things to do.
An emergency is not the
time to find out the equipment


does not work, so Waters said
they have to check fire hoses,
fire trucks and all of their
equipment each day to make
sure it is fully operational.
Then, the firefighters
maintain the fire house by
cleaning bathrooms, washing
windows or garbage cans,
cooking their own food, doing
laundry, sweeping, dusting or
even vacuuming.
If there is free time after all
of their daily "chores" are
done, the Starke firefighters
can use the computer, watch a
movie or work out, said
firefighter Gary Wise.
When they are not working,
most of the firefighters have
other jobs, including logging,
teaching, farming or a lawn
service, Waters said.
"I grew up on a farm," he
said. "This is a career I can do
outside...and still do farming
that has been in my family for
generations."
Because the firefighters
spend 24-hours at a time with
each other, Chief Dwayne
Hardee said the fire house has
a family atmosphere.
"You work together and

you're like family, he said."
"It's kind of like that
husband and wife thing. We
know what each other likes
and don't like."
Hardee, who has been at the
department for almost 30 years
and has been chief since 1985,
said he knows what Waters
likes on his sandwich because
they have worked together for
so long.
Besides being a flexible
career option, the life of a
firefighter can .be pretty
interesting.
Young said, "It's probably
one of the neat things. You
never know what you're going
to get."
Calls have come into the fire
department for yellow jackets
who have attacked a dog and
taken over a house, a bee hive
in the road, a football score or
a dog having its head stuck in
the ventilation blocks of a
house's foundation.
When people do not know
who to call, it seems like they
call the fire department, said
Waters.
I' 'We're like an insurance
policy," Waters said. "You
hate to pay for it until youth
need it."
Firefighting also has. its
down side.
First, there is the actual
danger of running into a
burning building.
"It's thought about," Waters
said, "but it's the nature of the
business."
Starke .Fire Department Lt.
Bryan Stephens said, "We've
had real minor burns, but
nothing we had to go to the
hospital for. We look out for
each other and try not to put
each other in dangerous
situations unless we have to."
And when you work in an
emergency career, you have to
work on Christmas. weekends
and possibly on a family
member's birthday or
anniversary.
Despite this, Hardee and the
firefighters said they are happy
to serve the people.
"You get satisfaction from
helping people you live and
work with," he said.
The fire department helps
the community by having fire
safety demonstrations at the
elementary schools, nursing
homes and even businesses.
SStudents from Bradford"'
High. School's criminal justice'

as well.
Some of the firefighters also
go to the western states during,
summer time when there tends
to be an Qutbreak of wild fires,
said Stephens.
Hardee devotes more time to
the community by teaching on
his days off from the fire
department.

The Florida Department of
Environmental Protection is
encouraging 'Floridians to
recycle their tree after the
holiday. Floridians buy
several hundred thousand
Christmas trees each holiday
season. Before recycling a
Christmas tree, remove all
tinsel and ornaments. Some
other suggestions include:
* Place the tree in the yard
or garden for use by birds and
other wildlife. The branches
provide shelter from strong
winds and cold. Additionally,
food can be supplied by
hanging fruit slices, seed
cakes, or suet bags on its
branches or smearing peanut
butter and seeds in pine cones
and hang them in the tree.
* Prune off the branches and
place the boughs over
perennials as winter mulch.
* Chip the tree and use as
mulch around trees, shrubs, or
in flower beds.
* If you can't use the tree
yourself, contact local
government offices or your
sanitation service. Most
communities have some type
of Christmas tree disposal
program. Some have central
collection areas, while others
* Conservation groups may
provide other options. Some
hunting and fishing groups
collect trees and use them to
provide habitat for fish and
wildlife.
For many, selecting and
decorating the Christmas tree
is one of the highlights of the
holiday season. After the
holidays, recycle your tree and
prolong its usefulness.


Florida Agriculture and
Consumer Services
Commissioner Charles H.
Bronson recently dispatched
personnel and equipment from
the department's Division of
Forestry to Texas to assist in
battling deadly wildfires.,
Bronson responded to a
request for help by sending
three tractor plows and
operators, five "dozer bosses,"
and a mechanic.
Dozer bosses are firefighters
trained to help non-fire-
certified bulldozer operators
safely put in fire lines to help
suppress and contain a fire.
The firefighters are being
sent to the Texas Forest
Service office in Granbury,
Texas, just southwest of Fort
Worth.
"I am extremely mindful of
the substantial assistance many
. states, including Texas,
provided when wildfires broke
out in Florida in previous
years and stretched our
resources beyond their means,"
Bronson said. "I am hopeful
our firefighters and equipment
will help Texas in its efforts to
get a handle on these
devastating wildfires."
The firefighters assigned to
assist Texas have been sent
from the division's Blackwater,
Bonifay, Perry and
Jacksonville districts.
Bronson has also indicated
he is ready to respond with
additional help if and when it
is requested by Texas officials.

SE principal benefits from act of true friendship


By CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer.
Randy Whytsell has
wondered how to say, "Thank
you," to his friend, John
Cooper. All Cooper wants
from Whytsell is a friendly
game-of golf.
That time will come, but it's
because of Cooper that it will
happen at all.
Cooper donated one of his
kidneys to Whytsell, who was
looking at having to begin
dialysis soon because of a
kidney disease. To Cooper, an
attorney in Starke and a
Bradford County
commissioner, doing so was
no big deal. The way he
looked at it, he had two
kidneys and he could afford to
give one to his friend.
I----AFl--I-coutNtd -iifgl iie was
him having to go through the
next three to five years on
dialysis," Cooper said.
It was something any friend
should have done, Cooper said.
Whytsell, the principal of
Starke Elementary School, said
the sacrifice may not have
been a big deal to Cooper, but
it was a big deal to him and his
family. Whytsell said it's a
sacrifice that many could not
have made and because of it,
he has the chance to live a full
life.
"We sure appreciate John,"
\Vh)tsell said. "He's a great
guy, a great friend and a good
Christian man. We appreciate


him doing that."
In light of the two men's
love of golf, it seems
appropriate to say that the duo
made a "hole in one" when
Cooper, the first nonrelative to
undergo testing to determine if
he could donate a kidney to
Whytsell, proved to be a
match, thus allowing the
transplant to occur a lot sooner
than Whytsell was expecting.
Whytsell said from talking
with doctors, he would've
expected to wait for six, seven
or eight people to undergo
testing before-~-Th-atch was
found-if a match was found.
From his understanding, it was
. unheard of to find a live-donor
match within a span of 2-3
months and pretty much a
"miracle" that the first person
tested would be a match.
Both men, who are members
of First Baptist Church in
Starke, said the credit goes to
God.
"There's no doubt his hand
was in it," Whytsell said.
Whyvsell's first sign that
something \Nas %rong %icth his
kidneys occurred during an
annual physical %hen it was
discovered his createnine
level's .were high (creatinine is
a waste product in the blood
created by muscle metabolism;
healthy kidneys remove
creatinine from the blood). He
began seeing a nephrologist at
the University of Florida three
years ago and was eventually
diagnosed with the disease IgA
nephropathy, which damages


the kidneys' filtering units,
which are called glomeruli.
The damage caused by the
disease results from abnormal
deposits of the protein IgA in
the glomeruli.
The nephrologist wanted
Whytsell to have a transplant
as soon. as possible while he
was still in relatively good
health. Whytsell said he did
not feel sick., He was able to
continue working at Starke
Elementary up until the time of
his surgery, with fatigue being
the only symptom he
experienced.
Whytsell was put on the
cadaver list in the case a live
donor could not be found.
"If John had not volunteered
to be a live donor or if I had
not gotten a live donor, I
would have had to wait at least
3-5 years (for -a kidney),"
Wlhytsell said. "I was still not
real sick compared to a lot of
people, so I would have been
at the bottom of that (cadaver)
list."
Cooper did not know the
extent of Whytsell's condition
until Whytsell told him when
the two families weni to lunch
after church one Sunda\
Whytsell said he may need a
transplant, to which Cooper
replied, "Well, I've g6 ptwo
kidneys. I'll give you one of
mine." a
The first obstacle was
overcome when it was
discovered that Cooper and'
Whytsell have the same blood
type. Then Cooper underwvenit

McClellan Recycling, located at 224 W. Washington St., pays customers
for scrap metals, including aluminum, copper, brass and other items.


BY LINDSEY KIRKLAND
Telegraph Staff Writer
One man's trash is another
man's treasure, and in
Bradford County, everyone
gets a paycheck out of the
deal.
_ T-he--Metei-laiT-Rec--cling-
center was started so
customers could bring in their
aluminum soda-type cans and.
scrap metals, including copper,
brass and aluminum, _i-n
exchange for money.
!Dorothy McClellan, 73, who
owns the business with her
husband Henry, 75, describes
the business as a "grandma and
grandpa" kind of shop.
The business employs their
family members, right down to
their granddaughters.
In order to stay with their
family image, McClellan said,
"We don't allow drinking
around here."
Once a man came to the
shop to trade in his scrap metal
and was turned away because
he had alcohol with him.
McClellan was a housewife,
and her husband of 53 years
worked in the logging
business. When he retired from
logging, he submitted a bid to
the city to haul their trash to
sites in Baldwin.
When ends didn't meet, the
couple did not want to rely on
the state or the government to
be able to pay their bills. They
opened up their own business
instead.
"We started just to
supplement our check," said
McClellan.
Henry's father originally
repaired lawn mowers and
chainsaws at 224 W.
Washington St. in Starke.
Once he retired, the
McClellans decided to open up
the scrap metal recycling
center in the same building
where the shop had once been
in operation.
When customers bring in
scrap metals or cans, the
McClellans pay them by the
weight in pounds.
Aluminum cans are a
standard rate of 35 cents per
pound. For the other types of
metals, the amount varies
because the market value
always changes, said


McClellan.
'Any type of customer is
welcome, too.
"Women can come same as
men and not feel
uncomfortable," she said.
Onee-the business has other
people's "junk," McClellan
said, it is sorted and hauled to
Ocala where it is sold to a
larger recycling center.
After being in operation for
about five tears. she said the
business has almost grown too
big to handle.
McClellan's husband has to
haul away 1,200 to '1,800
pounds of aluminum cans each
week.
"There's always going to be
scrap metal," she said.

The recycling business
would be a good career for a
younger person for this reason,
and also because he or she
could easily lift the heavy
metals and aluminum cans.
Despite the amount of items
they receive, McClellan said
she and her husband are not
looking to quit.
"We'll stay as long as we're
able," she said.
Open Monday through
Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
and on Saturday from 9 a.m. to
2 p.m., the center is not just a
job, to the husband and wife
team. McClellan said they are

a series of tests that began in
September.
"In a very nice way they
poke you, they prod you, they
scan you and they screen you,"
Cooper said. "It was the best
physical I've ever had."
Cooper underwent testing
for approximately !two months
before he and Whytsell were
told that the transplant could
proceed with Cooper as the
donor. The surgery\ was
scheduled for Nov. 22 at
Shands at UF.
Cooper's surgery and
hospital stay wound up being
longer than he was expecting.
His kidney was supposed to be
removed via small incisions,
but the surgeon nicked his
renal artery-'a known risk of
the surgery. Because of that, a
large incision had to be made
to stop the bleeding before
removing the kidney.
""M three-hour surgery
turned into a six-hour
surgery," Cooper said.
"Instead of coming home
Thursday (two days after
surgery), I stayed till Sunday."
Cooper left the hospital one
day before Whytsell was
discharged.
"I would've felt really bad if

A LOOK BACK AT BRADFORD COUNTY HISTORY


Law

enforcement a

bloody
business in

Bradford
While any job in law
enforcement has the potential
to be deadly, being a sheriff or
deputy during Bradford
County's early days often
proved fatal. Six sheriffs, three
deputies and two city marshals
died attempting to carry out
their sworn duty during a 27-
year period from 1885 to 1912.
Of the nine sheriffs who
served during that violent
period of the county's history,
five were murdered in ,the line
of duty and a sixth died of
bullets fired either by himself
Sor an unknown party. Three
deputy sheriffs were also killed
in office, as were one city
marshal and one acting night
marshal.
The most perilous period of
all was a six-year span from
1885 to 1891 when three out of
four sheriffs were killed after
completing only one or two
years of their terms two were
father and son,' and the third.
was a victim of the notorious
outlaw, Harmon Murray.

Wash Epperson first
of 2 family members
to die in uniform
The story begins on Jan. 5,
1885, when George
Washington (Wash) Epperson
of Lake Butler, took office as
the eighth sheriff to be elected
after New River County was
renamed Bradford in 1861.
Eleven months later, the first
Sheriff Epperson to die in
office was killed while
attempting to arrest a wanted
man who had fled this area and
"holed up" in Valdosta, Ga.
In spite of the protests of his
family, Henry (the son of
Wash) who had ,always
dreamed of being sheriff some
day, was named to succeed his
father in office. He served out
the unexpired term and was re-
elected to a full-year term in
1888. But fate decreed,
however, that he was to meet
the same tragic death as his
father. After serving one year
of his new term, he was killed
while attempting to arrest a
notorious gambler and
desperado who boasted that he
had already killed two men in
south Florida.
Third on the list was D.L.
(Levy) Alvarez, a city marshal
who had been appointed to fill
out the unexpired sheriffs term
of Henry Epperson. Alvarez
was killed in a shootout
between a local posse and the
dreaded desperado, Harmon
Murray The lawmen had
Murray trapped in the home of
a friend of Murray's just.south
of Starke. It was a moonlit
night in 1891 and the sheriffs
white shirt made an excellent
target for Murray and his
famed Winchester rifle with
which he is believed to have
killed at least 12 people in a
wide-ranging area between
Gainesville and Fernandina.
After the murder of three


Sheriff Everett E.
Johns died amidst
mysterious
circumstances in
Nassau County, where
he became a deputy
sheriff after losing a
bid for re-election.


Sheriff Henry

who served
from 1886-
1888, was one
of two
Eppersons
who lost their
lives while
wearing a

County
badge.


sheriffs in the space of six
years, things were
comparatively peaceful on the
law enforcement front for'
several years. P.S. Crews was
appointed to serve out the
unexpired term of Sheriff
Alvarez without mishap, and
in the next regular election of
1892, Everett E. Johns, father
of the state senator and former
acting governor, Charley E.
Johns, was elected to take over
the hard-hit office and served
one term before being defeated
by S.B. Denmark, who served;
from 1897 through 1900
without bodil\ harm. Johns
was re-elected in 1900 for the
1901-905 term of office,
serving a full four years before
being defeated by J.P. (Joe)
Bennett in the election of
1904..

Former sheriff
ambushed in Nassau,
While Johns was not
actually a sheriff here at the
time of his murder, he was a
deputy sheriff in Nassau
County. He had moved there
with.his family because he
feared for their safety
following the hard-fought
election. The two candidates
were backed by the .,two
predominant factions in the
county at that time. In a later
interview, Senator Johns said
the family home was set on
fire two times by political'
enemies, but fortunately the,
Bradford Guard unit was in
session on at least one
occasion, and quickly
organized a "bucket brigade"
to put out the blaze. Noting the
seriousness with which the
factions took their politics in
those days, Senator Johns said
that during his father's term as
sheriff, if he had to make a trip
to Lake Butler, he would go
there by one route and return
by another in an attempt to
elude ahy planned bushwhack.
After his defeat at the polls,
Everett Johns sought
employment with his good
friend, Sheriff Higginbotham
of Nassau County, where he
was appointed chief deputy. It
was there that a trap was set by'


an unidentified assassin. He
was murdered on the lonely
'sand dunes of Amelia Island.
In December of 1905 the
Telegraph carried the
following account of the
murder as published in the
Thursday Dec. 14, isspe of the.
Femandina Star:
"The story is now familiar
how a strange white man,
assuming the name of Abe
Brown, faked a warrant for the
'arrest of another for stealing
fishing nets to the value of
$500 and with this lured Mr.
Johns to the beach, where he
was slain with a single bullet,
fired through his head from ear
to ear, while riding along with
the man in his buggy,
"They left town together
about 2:30 p.m. Wednesday
afternoon (Dec. 6). Not more,
than an hour later, a white man
was seen by a colored boy to
lead Mr. Johns' horse across
the shell road from the north
side, between James
Drummond's house and beach,
and tie the horse to a tree.
Thursday night, a large posse
searched the north end of the
island, and about 2 o'clock in
the morning Mr. Harry
Starbuck was the first to
discover the body between the
fort and the jetties., and within
about 300 yards of the beach.
The abandoned and blood-
stained buggy stood near by."
(Note: The fort referred to
must have been Fort Clinch.)
"While there is a deep-
founded suspicion as to the
motive and the source of the
dreadful crime there is not at
this writing any substantial
clue as to the identity or the
whereabouts of the villain who
did the foul deed. While the
body was rifled of watch,
revolver, and a diamond pin,
the robbery is considered only
incidental, and that the motive
was revenge, and that the
murderer was a hireling. Fate
seemed to conspire to, the
advantage of the murderer in
every way. The awakening
fears caused by the absence of
the deputy sheriff, were
allayed for some hours thE
next -day by a telephone
message from a friend in

1 mile S of Raiford P.O.


Jacksonville who made a
mistake in concluding that Mr.
Johns was there, where he was
due that day as a witness in
United States Court. By the
time this was corrected and a
posse could be collected to
make the search, the second
night had closed down on the
body lying in the lonely spot in
the sandy wastes of the beach
and the murderer could be a
thousand miles away.
"A man got on the train at
O'Neil on the evening of the
murder and got off before the
train reached Jacksonville who
may have been him (the
murderer). Possibly. he took
Mr. Johns' watch,., revolver,
and pin with him as proofs that
the deed was done, met his
party in Jacksonville and got
his pay, and has since put
many miles between him and
the scene of his crime. Chief
Muller went to Jacksonville
Saturday in response to a call
from Chief Vanzant, and spent
the day there. The Jacksonville
papers reported they were
working 6n a strong clue, but
Mr. Muller admits they have
nothing.
"Heart-rending were the
scenes ,at the home of the
murdered officer when the
dreadful news was broken; a
home endeared by his faithful
care and love and devotion.
Could the fiend who
committed the crime have
witnessed the grief of the
devoted wife and the crushed
hearts of .the little children
around the mute form of the
father, if a spark 'of human
feeling was left in his breast,
his portion in hell would begin
right there. The revolver used
by the murderer has been
found lying on top of a sand
hill at the scene of the murder,
with three cartridges in it."
Senator Johns later said that
his father made the trip to
Amelia Island by himself and
stopped at the assigned spot to
hitch up his horse when he was
shot from ambush b (the


unseen assailant.

Fifth victim died
under mysterious
circumstances
Two years after the death of
Everett Johns, his successor in
the Bradford sheriff's office,
Joe Bennett, of Lawtey,
became the, fifth to die in
office. In August of 1907-,
Sheriff Bennett, after serving
"only two years of his term, was
found dead of gunshot
wounds, under mysterious
circumstances, at his home in
Starke. For lack of evidence,
the death was presumed to be a
suicide, although foul' play was
suspected b\ some.
J.N. Langford, of Lake
Butler, was appointed to fill
Bennett's unexpired term and
was then re-elected to a full

See SHERIFFS, p. 6C


Sheriff John N.
Langford, who served
from 1907 to 1912,
also died in office
during an incident that
was rumored to have
been a squabble over
a gambling game.

If the house needed so much
work, what was the appeal of
buy ing it?
Well, for one thing. Elzie
and Sandy simplN enjoy doing
thework. In fact. they built
their own log house in
Keystone Heights.
":I was born -in a little,
modest log house in south
Georgia." Elzie said. "I always
had a lifetime ambition of
building a log house."
Elzie studied several log
houses in the area before
construction began shortly
after Elzie and Sandy were
married (April 1962).. They
were joined on the project by
their respective, fathers and an
uncle of Elzie's.
Elzie and Sandy still own
the house, which they utilize as
a vacation place, spending
time out there during the
summer.
Another appeal of the house
on Walnut Street, aside from
working to improve it, was the
house's history.
Elzie said he and Sandy both
enjoy history and their house
has one. The house was built
in the 1890s by the Wall
family, which makes it one of
the older houses in Starke,

Sanders said his son Paul is
still enjoying the single life,
but Eric, Sanders' 36-year-old
son, is not only married, but he
and his wife, Stephanie, have
5-year-old twin sons: Austin
and Hunter.
"They're'just the love of my
life," Sanders said. "It's great
to have grandkids."
Sanders, after February, will
have more time to spend with
his grandkids, if he wishes, or
time to take up golf, a sport he
has dabbled in for 20 years,
though he has not played in
five years.
"I gave my clubs to my
youngest son because I didn't
use them," Sanders said. "I'm


Elzie said.
When Elzie and Sandy
moved to Starke, the- house
was owned by Hollis Knight, a
local attorney. Elzie said
Knight's mother, Mary, as
also an attorney-one of. the
first female attorneys in the
state-and his fatheci as a
state senator.
The house underwent one
major remodeling project in
the 1930s because of a fire,
Elzie said.
"These old houses used to
have the kitchen that was
separate from the main part oI
the house, with some kind of a
walkthrough. That kitchen
burned in the 1931s and
scorched the rear part of this
house."
Elzie and Sandy hate not
had to repair any damages
caused by fire, but their work
on the house has been
challenging nonetheless.'
Sandy said there were iana
times where she and her
husband asked themselves
what they had gotten
themselves into, but they have
enjoyed the house and the
effort it has taken to renovate

from him and try playing some
golf."
He will have time to get to
those items on his "Honey Do"
list, as well as continue
working on the house he and
Sandy live in on Walnut Street
(see related story).
Whatever he does, Sanders
said he will not do anything
related to the courtroom for at
least six months, preferring to
let the new circuit judge
become acclimated to the
position- and the area.
After that, though, it may be
hard for Sanders to stay away.
"I think I'll miss it, so I
think I probably will work as a

After ser\ ing little more than--
18 months of his new term,
Langford was killed on Aug.
23, 1912, in a room of the old
Everett Hotel in Jacksonville.
He was in the company of
W.T. Andrews of Raiford, and
J.W. Hatcher of Worthington
Springs. There were rumors
that the fatal 'shooting resulted
from a squabble over a
gambling game, during which
Langford and Andrews
struggled for possession of a
gun. So far as is known,. there
was no indictment in the case.
In addition to the six sheriffs

of Langford the "tragic era" for
Bradford County sheriffs
seemed to end and lengthy
careers with repeated re-
elections became traditional in
the sheriffs office.
In 1916, another member of
the Epperson family, defying
the jinx that .had doomed his
father and older brother,
offered himself for the office
that had brought so much
unhappiness to the family.
Will Epperson defeated Sheriff
Denmark in' the primary by a
2-1 vote of 1,182 to 680 and
began a career in law,
enforcement that lasted 19
years. He died of natural
causes. The late Joe Hill
Williams, a prominent attorney
and assistant state attorney,
said of Epperson's decision to
seek the then-hazardous office:
"Will was .a good friend of
, mine and I begged him not to
run for the job. I thought that
two men out of one family was
enough. But Will went ahead
anyway and served a long time


without personal injury. Hq
was just as brave as the others,
but had a bump of caution that
seemed to pull him throagit
many a tight spot."
Epperson seemed to set the
pace and he was followed in
office by Q.A. (Oscar) Andreu;

Josh Mitchell's only field
goal of the second half, a 3-
,pointer, gave the Tigers a.66-
65 lead w ith 36 seconds left in
the game. Mitchell would add
a free throw to cap the scoring.
Baker County had a, chance
to score after that, but instead,
committed an unforced
turnover underneath the
Tigers' basket with less than
10 seconds remaining.
It was an awful first half for
Union as the Tigers were
dominated on the offensive
glass and made just five field
goals.
Union did not shoot well (31
percent) from the foul line all
night and made just 8-of-29
free throw attempts in the first
half that saw Baker County
take a 36-19 lead.
The Tigers closed the third
quarter with a 15-2 run that
pulled them within 46-44.
Kevin Alexander began the run
with a turn-around jumper,
then blocked a Baker shot at
the other end of the court.
