Bradford coach
faces Alachua
molestation
charge
A Bradford County head softball
coach was arrested in Gainesville on
a charge of lewd and lascivious
molestation of a 14-year-old girl.
Jeremy James McFadyen, 35, was
charged last November by
Gainesville Police on a sworn
complaint after officers received an
e-mail from the victim saying she
wanted to talk about the incident,
according to Sgt. Keith Kameg.
The state reviewed the case and
McFadyen is now accused of
engaging in a sexual relationship
with a 14-year-old girl, starting in
August 1999.
McFadyen had been the girl's
softball coach since 1997 and also
worked one-on-one with her as a
pitching coach. according to Sgt.
Kameg. The relationship took place
in northwest Gainesville while the
girl was an Alachua County resident
and ended about two years later
during her junior year in high school,
Sgt. Kameg said.
When police filed the complaint,
McFadyen was employed as BHS
softball coach and at Southside
Elementary School as a physical
education teacher.
McFadyen was booked into the
Alachua County Jail Feb. 11 with a
$100,000 bond. He was released on
his own recognizance the same day.
According to Superintendant
Harry Hatcher. at this time
McFadyen remains suspended with
pay.

Investigation claims job of prisons chief


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor
After months of ',
speculation about just how r --
high a state and federal
probe of the Florida
Department of Corrections
would go, Corrections
Secretary James V. Crosby,
53. was asked for his
resignation last. week by
Governor Jeb Bush.
Bush had previously
supported Crosby when
questions were raised about Crosby
his place at the top of an embattled prison system.


For his part, Crosby responded to criticism of the
prison system by defending the character of most of
the system's employees while simultaneously
unveiling a new code of accountability for
employees who do find themselves on the wrong
side of the law.
In a statement, the governor said, "I am deeply
saddened and disappointed at the need to take this
action."
The governor's office is cooperating with the
investigation and won't comment further on
Crosby's resignation.
Charges of wrongdoing by corrections
employees- including steroid abuse, physical and
sexual assault, theft of money and materials, and
abuse of inmate labor -continue to mount. Crosby


protege Allen "A.C." Clark, who resigned last year
from his position as director of Region I prisons,
has also been embroiled in the investigation. The
Florida Department of Law Enforcement seized
property owned by both men in the investigation of
illegal work performed by inmates.
Crosby had been at the top of corrections since
2003, but his career in the prison system began in
1975 as a classification specialist at the North
Florida Reception Center. He later served as
superintendent at Cross City and New Riyet
Correctional, director of security and institutional
management for several prisons and was promoted
to warden at Florida State Prison -in Raiford ig
1996. 1

What's happening to Alligator Creek?t

Openings in the Laura Street Bridge In Starke and other
locations show an accumulation of sediment, the buildup of


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor
The banks of Alligator Creek are
collapsing, raising concerns about
property and environmental damage,
and an increased chance of flooding.
Not only did a project largely
carried out by the city of,.Starke to,
clean up hurricane damage go too far,
that work was also carried opt
without environmental 'resource
permitting-a violation of Florida.
law ,
The problem came to light when
the Florida Department of
Transportation complained about the
amount of sediment workers were
having to remove from bridge


openings located along Alligator
Creek. The Florida Department of
Environmental Protection took notice
of water quality violations and
wanted to know who was responsible,
and the Suwannee River Water
Management District stepped in to
trace the problem to its source.
, John Kiefer of BCI Engineers and
Scientists has been' working with the
water management district to
diagnose the problem and propose a
solution. While the city was supposed
to be moving hurricane debris that
had fallen into the ,creek, that
somehow turned into a dredging
project. An inspector from, the
Natural Resources Conservation
Service, which partially paid for the


which could contribute to flooding if a solution to stop the
erosion of Alligator Creek's banks isn't enacted.


cleanup, has seen the results and
determined that the city's work on the
creek had been excessive and not in
keeping with what the organization
had intended.
A prior phase of the project to the
west of 301 carried :out with grant
funds received by the 'county and
-water management district removed
debris and some vegetation, but took
almost no sediment from the creek.
According to water management's
Jerry Bowden, vegetation increased
enormously east of 301, soil quality
changed and there was less right of
way to work in. Work to clear that'
area became too ambitious.
Kiefer said stream channels have a
certain capacity to carry water and


sediment based on the width, depth
and slope of the channel. All three of
those factors are important in how
channels accommodate increased
flow of water and sediment.
Channel stability requires that the
channel be large enough to
accommodate flow and that the banks
are armored by something. Stream
banks are tightly held by
vegetation-trees, shrubs and
grasses-and when that is removed,
stream shape changes much more
easily.
"That is a very important aspect of
what's going on with the creek now,"
Kiefer said. The armor has been
stripped away.

COunty tackling junkyard, horse issues again


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor
The Bradford County Commission
is resurrecting two thorny issues from,
the past, hearing first readings of
ordinances regulating wrecking yards
and junkyards and allowing horses in
residential areas at tonight's board
meeting.
Wrecking yard owners pleaded
with the commission to abandon prior.
proposed regulations. they .felt were
too restrictive, and the commissioners
complied. After meetings between
some of those individuals and county
staff, the commission now feels it has
an ordinance that will pass muster
with existing wrecking yard owners
but provide tougher restrictions on
future wrecking yards and junkyards.
Nonconforming wrecking yards
and junkyards will be those already in
existence at the time the new
regulations are put in place and not
located in industrial districts.


Although grandfathered in, they must
still meet certain requirements,
including an opaque' wall or fence at
least 8-feet tall completely enclosing
the yard or a landscape buffer that is
at least 80 percent opaque.
If the nonconforming use ceases
for more than two consecutive years,
subsequent use of the property as a
wrecking yard or junkyard will have
to meet the updated regulations.
.Future wrecking yards and
junkyards will only be allowed by
special exception in industrially
zoned districts. They will be required
to have an eight-lfoot wall or fence.
An 80 percent opaque landscape
buffer will be allowed in lieu- of the
wall or fence, except along lot lines
parallel to roadways. A 50-foot
setback from federal, state or county
roads and a 25-foot from contiguous
property lines will be enforced.
A prior attempt to allow residents
to keep horses in residential districts


was also set aside. The county
commission will now consider the
issue again, restricting ownership of
horses to special exceptions in
residential single family and mobile
home districts.
Here, too, residents seeking that
special exception must meet certain
requirements. Under the proposed
ordinance, a minimum of five acres
will be required to keep no more than
three horses. For every additional
horse, two more- acres will be
required.
The ordinance also places setback
requirements of 75 feet from any
property line on structures used to
house those horses.
In order to receive a special
exception to keep horses or operate a
wrecking yard, the landowner will
have to approach the county's board
of adjustment for permission.
The first hearing is scheduled, for
tonight, Thursday, Feb. 16, at 6:30


p.m. A second reading will be
necessary before the new ordinances
take effect.
The county commission will also'
be hearing requests for three land use
amendments. Gregory and Suzanne
Borganelli have submitted an
application to convert nearly six acres
at Midway on S.R. 21 from
agricultural to commercial for the
possible construction of a dentist's
office.
Earl and Shirley York have made
an application to correct the zoning
for their existing business, requesting
the land use be amended from
agricultural to commercial. The Oasis
Lounge is located on U.S. 301 South.
Finally, the county commission has
made application to amend the land
use of Crystal .Lake Homesites
located off of ,S.R. 100 from
agricultural to residential low density,
This will prevent mobile homes from
being placed in that neighborhood.

The picture above shows bank erosion in Alligator Creek just off of Flume Road.
The nick in the creek bed shown in the picture at top right has moved seven feet
closer to the Flume Road bridge in just a few months. In six months to two years,
the bed erosion could reach the bridge, weakening its concrete supports. At
middle right is a photo taken from the Laura Street Bridge showing how erosion
is weakening the vegetative support along the banks of Alligator Creek. Below
that is an idealized artist's conception of h(ow that same stretch of creek could
look following the restoration project proposed by the Suwannee River Water
Management District.


CREEK
Continued from p. 1Ap

Creek banks are
experiencing rotational
failures, in which banks are
rolling and sliding into the
creek over much of Ihe length
of the system. In olher areas,
the water fl6w is undercutting
steeper banks, causing upper
lasers to collapse into the creek
and taking trees down with
them in what is known as
cantilever failure.
Live vegetation has been
removed from the bank,
denuding. it and exposing the
underlying soil, Kiefer said. In
all, the impacted area. is
approximately 4 miles long,
stretching from Noitheast 17th
Avenue (Flume Road), to U.S.
301.
According to Kiefer, the
impact of unchecked erosion
includes damage to access
roads, parking .lots and utilities
lining the creek. An erosionall
escarpment hais developed at
the Taco Bell parking lot -where -
the creek bank is falling from "
beneath the parking lot's edge,
and the same is happening with
an access drive off of Flume
Road.
"This will continue to
progress," Kiefer said. "The
same problem will just form
somewhere upstream or
downstream."
Additionally,, sediment
accumulating in- bridge
openings and restricling the
flow of.the creek could lead to
flooding.
"Bridges are typically
designed for those openings to
literally be open to pass certain
"design storms, like the 25-year
flood or the 100-year flood.
When they get clogged with
sediment, they no longer have
the capacity to pass that flood
so the level of service they
were designed for goes down
and flood hazards go up. That's
why this is pretty critical,"


Kiefer said.
Such accumulation can be
seen at ihe Laura Street Bridge
and every bridge do%%n stream
of Flume Road. Furthermore,
erosion in the creek bed is
threatening to undermine the
concrete at the bridge on Flume
Road, replacement of which
was just completed last year.
Then there is Lake Rowell,'
where an influx of sediment
has damaged the .environment
by lowering water quality.
Of the options discussed to
correct -the problem, Kiefer
said a combined approach to
restore the channel corridor
within the existing right of. way
and stabilize the creek banks:
would be most effective and
cost efficient, although it could
still be a $2 million, project.-
The corridor restoration .would
involve excavating sleep banks
and broaden the flood plain.
New vegetation, biodegradable
fabric and rock would be used
to stabilize the eroding banks.
A consent, agreement from
Suwannee River Water
Management District has been
providd'for.accetance. the
r;. i,,i-. ?,n>i%3Rlt~fft l,,r,!laopt
city commis ion. Th water
management district's John
Dinges said the consent
agreement-a formal
enforcement action-was the
tool that would be used to bring
resolution to an outstanding
violation and so the city and the
'district can move forward to
get the problems corrected.
Per the agreement, the'
district will design and
construct the restoration and
enhancement of Alligator
Creek from East Laura Street to
Northeast 17th Avenue where
the worst of the 'damage has
occurred. Starke will be
responsible for contributing 10
percent of the design cost,
capped at $25,000, which will
be set aside by .the city
commission during its next
budget year. The city W.ill also
be responsible for obtaining all
permits necessary for the
project and will assume


perpetual maintenance of the;.
restoration once the project is
complete.. The` district car; tap,
Florida Forever 'to obtain funds
to fix Alligator Creek.
Whatever violations may
have occurred, Dinges said the
agreement was not 'designed to
be punitive.
If there's a bright side to ihc
da-fiage caused and the c pc nec
that will be entailed in
correcting it, it. is the potential
for the- development of.
recreational uses alongside the
creek restoration. such as the
development of parks, hiking
and biking trails. The improved
quality of the creek may even
support the development of .a
decent fishery.
"A lot of times you can find
money when you do a stream
restoration: job, you can make
these- multifunctional projects
and bring in additional dollars
to enhance for recreationn"
Kiefer said.
In the end, the level of
service for flood protection
should also be better than ever,
Kiefer said.
The'city commission 'will
decide whefherf'bir rtoo accept
the consent agreement or
request changes during its next
meeting.

Continued from p. 5A

A relatively ne%\ aspect to
the agriculture class is that it
can now be counted as a
science credit.
Westcott said this opens up
the lessons and gears them
toward agriculture experiments
on food safety) and pesticide
residues. GPS navigation and
ground water contamination,
funded through technology
preparation funds.
The agriculture program has
approximately, 175 acres,
which students know as the
"ag farm," to use for gardens,
fish ponds. to raise animals
and as a learning tool.
Sometimes FFA members
house their pigs and steer
there, but additionally, there is
room for dozens of cows,
sheep, calves, donkeys, and
pastures and timber.


The ag farm' is, yet another
tool the BHS ag program has
at its disposal to keep its status
of being a self-supporting
program. When extra funding
was needed for a tractor and,
computers, they sold some of
their timber..
FFA' is affected because
students come to this extra-!
curricular activity already
knowing and having been
taught some of the things
necessary 'to do well in
competitions.
Currently, there is no
agriculture program at the
middle school level, but BHS-
freshmen can start a school
year off by joining the FFA
Junior Chapter. Grades 10-12
comprise the FFA Senior
Chapter, and there is a chapter
for adults, called. the FFA
Alumni Chapter.
The. junior, chapter has
approximately) 50 students,
said Westcot. The senior has.
90 students. The alumni


chapter has 17 adults who
"support. the FFA through.
awards, scholarships,
volunteering, and assistance
with competitions and events.
Westcott and Alvarez both
do their best to keep these
members busy throughout the
year.
-'FFA is one ,,of those
organizations where, therf" is
almost too much to do all the
time," Westcott said.
FFA offers summer
programs like the Florida FFA
Outdoor. Adventure where
students gather with industry
professionals to learn about
boating safety, water resource
management, firearm safety
and wildlife -management.
Members can even take part in
group and leadership activities
and contests. BHS FFA
member Timm\ Thornton
placed second with a 5-pound,
11-ounce bass at last year's
event.
By leadership, public
speaking and communityy
service, FFA members have
succeeded outside of the realm
of the organization, too.
Members of the national.
organization have gone on to
be president of the United
States; country musicians,
doctors, scientists ., and,
teachers.
As in the past, Bradford
County can continue to expect
great things and people to
come out of the Bradford High
School FFA chapters.
The 2005-2006 FF.A officers
for BHS senior chapter are
President Matt Rhoden, Vice
President Justin Durrance.
Secretary Jerrica Revels,
Treasurer Julie Detlefsen,
Reporter Almmee Johns.
Sentinel Ronnie Norse and
Chaplain Griff Register.
Junior chapter officers are
Paige Cruce, Scott Crews,
Katelyn Simms, Terrissa
Kirkland, Ashley Estes. Tyler
Orton, Amber Waters, Kristen
Melton and Samantha Balcom.


The Bradford High School FFA Junior Chapter officers for the current
year are (front) Ashley Estes, Tyler Orton, Amber Waters, Kristen
Melton, Samantha Balcom, (back) Paige (Cruce, Scott Crews, Katelyn

commercial site EGALS


plans approved.
a p p r IN THE CIRCUIT COURT, EIGHT
JUDICIAL CIRCUIT, IN AND f


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
A'I Telegraph Editor

A trio of site plans for new
commercial developments was
approved by the city of Starke
abd Bradford. County last
week.
The one that will draw the
niost attention is yet another
fist-food hamburger joint.
Vhataburger has submitted
plans to construct a restaurant
o* an outparcel next to Wal-
l-art Supercenter's
southernmost entrance.
Itgress and egress to and
fiom the restaurant will be via
the existing secondary
entrance.
Whataburger is ready to
begin permitting the
restaurant, but the city
c mission approved the, site
pjan contingent upon the
a4ldition of a sidewalk in front
of the restaurant. The
cbmmisspn realized its error
iit not requiring Wal-Mart to
construct a sidewalk out to its


new location, so City
Manager Ken Sauer is also
talking to their representative
about adding that sidewalk in
the near future.
Once Whataburger submits
a site plan depicting the
sidewalk, permitting and
construction can begin.
Another development in the
city will be taking place out
at the industrial park. JEd
Ripplinger of Ripplinger
Transport will be building a
facility at the curve in L.M.
Gaines Boulevard between
USA Gymnastics and Moore
Road Contracting for his
shipping business. Ripplinger
currently rents space at the
industrial park, but will, be
building a permanent location.
The third development will
also take place off of
S.R.100, but this one will be
closer to Keystone Heights. A
used carlot owned by Coverall
N.A. will go between the gas
station owned by S&G and
Keystone Inn.

Earlier this week it was
revealed that 10 inmates were
suing the department for using
tear gas and pepper spray as
"instruments of punishment

inmates suffered physically
and psychologically as a result
of the alleged abuse, enduring
chemical burns, asthma

Only four of the 10

the abuse was alleged to have

Tew named Bradford County Teacher of t


BY LINDSEY KIRKLAND
Telegraph Staff Writer
After a .long interview
process, .Donna JTew was
named Bradford County's
Teacher of the Year.
Tew, who',is Bradford High
School's reading coach, was
selected by her fellow faculty
members as the school's-
Teacher of the Year.

.She then had to answer, in
writing, many questions
provided by the Departfment of
S-Education.
Following this was an
interview process by a panel'
comprised of local and out-of-
town people. ,
Tew had to go up against the
other Teacher, of. Year'
recipients from each school in
the county. This was how she
was selected as Biradford's
Teacher of the Year.

If she would like to continue
on into the regional
competition, she has to submit
a video of herself teaching and
go through additional
questioning. From there, five
teachers will be selected to
compete for Florida's Teacher
of the Year.


Unlike a traditional teacher.
on a day-to-day basis she
teaches the teachers.
Tew said she helps them set
goals, learn the best researched
teaching methods, realize, their
strengths and apply reading
strategies to all curriculum
areas.
She is certified in'
elementary and primary grades
and is one step away from.
having her reading
endorsement.
She has been reading coach
for a total of four years, but
only the last year has been at
the high school.,

It is her 24th year of teaching
in Bradford County.
Previously, she has taught at
the elementary and middle
school levels within the
county..
She said the hardest part of
her job is to help teachers with
time management.
"It's a challenge for them to
find the time for everything
they have to do," she said.
Tew was very modest about
her new title as Teacher of the
Year, and said the. group of
people she works with deserve
the credit.


Donna Tew is a
reading coach,
at Bradford
High School.


"I like the group of teachers
I work with," she said.
"They're dedicated, hard
working and willing to try new
things."
Because of this work ethic,
she said, "I'm seeing lots of
growth in our students."
She said teachers are,
stepping up to the challenge of
teaching today'ns students and
the reflection of that effort is


seen in students' improving
test scores.
STew appreciates the support
staff and administrators, too.
She said the administrators are
helpful, knowledgeable and
very supportive, while the
support staff is' always willing
to help out.
Her job can be challenging
at times, but Tew said she
remembers playing school as a


child in New Jersey and lo'ed
'playing the teacher.
"I've known since fifth
grade that I wanted to b.e a'
teacher," she said....
Tew moved from New
Jersey to Bradford County and
attended school here. She
eventually married her
husband, David .
L Now, her whole family goes
to school together-during the
day. Her son, Michael, is a
senior at BHS, and 'her'
daughter, Kristen, is a
sophomoree.
When not at school, Tew
usually has work to take home
with her, but in her spare time,
she likes to .take naps and
spend time with her family.
BHS Principal Karl Wendell





SGrannm


he Year
said the honor that- Tew has
received, as well as ,the
School-Related Employee -of
Year, award given to Bill
Aldridge, is a tribute to the
kind of employees they have
on campus.. ...
"It's flattering," said
Wendell. "Obviously, they re:-:
both exceptional employees."
Last year, there were two
reading coaches, he said, and
Tew had to step in and take ofn-
the work load of both of those.;
employees. He said she has asp"
great relationship with the
teachers.
Wendell said the\ want to
continuously improve their test
scores.
"'I think she's going to really
help us do that," he said.





S'sBest


Aldridge is SRE of the Year


BY LINDSEY KIRKLAND
Telegraph Staff Writer.
William Aldridge, known by
most as "Bill," was named
Bradford County's School-
Related Employee of the Year.
Aldridge is the head
custodian at Bradford High
School.
He was selected as the BHS
School-Related Employee of
the, Year, and then went
through the same process of
questions and interviews as
Donna Tew (the Teacher of the
Year).
While his job as/ head
custodian may seem, self-
explanatory, Aldridge does not
just clean up after students and
staff.
One could say he holds the
keys to the kingdom because
he has to be able to get' into'
everyibuilding at the school:
He often has to work at
night because he has to open.
up the gym for a basketball
game or the auditorium for a'
band concert. Then, he has to
prepare these buildings so
everything is in order and
presentable for whichever
event is taking place.
Aldridge has spent 16 years
as a custodial staff member at
BHS. During this time, he has
gotten to know the employees
and the students.
He said he loves the- kids,
and unlike some adults, he gets
along well with them. '
"I don't have any problems
with the kids," he said.
Through the years, students
seem to learn Aldridge's name

High Shool.

Starke fills code enforcement,

animal control positions


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor
The Starke City
Commission approved two
contracts last week to fill the
positions at the head of code
enforcement and. animal
control:
Former police officer Felix
Ramos-Vargas will take over
code enforcement, replacing
former code enforcement
officer Larry Paterson. As
such, he- will respond to
complaints submitted to city
hall, citing properties in
violation of city codes and
testifying as to the nature of
those violations before the
code enforcement board.
His position will be part-
time, 64 hours a month,
supplemented by an additional
four hours per week assisting
with animal control.
Compensation is set at $800
each month.
Chuck Miller will be
returning to oversee animal
control, earning $2,100 a
month for the full-time
position. While Miller would
be on call 24 hours a day,
seven days a week, the
contract guarantees Miller
more time off, with a third
city employee.stepping in to
assist during those times.
. Commissioner Larry Davis
objected to paying Miller
more for working fewer hours.
While compensation for
,Ramos-Vargas' animal control


assistance is built into his
$800 a month contract, the
city will have to pay that third
employee, Timmy Harper,
overtime for his after-hours
animal control work.
Mayor Steve Futch said one
of the reasons Miller left
animal control originally was
because of the seemingly
endless hours, including
nights and weekends. City
Manager Ken Sauer said
money was in the animal
control budget to cover
payroll expenses, but Davis
said he couldn't go along with
paying an employee more for
working fewer hours and
paying additional employees
to make up the extra hours.
Davis said he could
understand the need to
guarantee Miller time off, but
wanted his rate of pay to
match what he was previously
earning-$10.75 an hour. At
the 100 or more hours
,biweekly Miller was working
previously, according to the
city manager, that would
nearly equal the $2,100 a
month specified in the new
contract.'Adjusting for a more
reasonable number of hours,'
however, places Miller
making several hundred dollars
more each month than he
would have under his previous
rate of pay. The new hourly
rate is around $13 an hour.
The city also discussed a
reduced level of service after


hours and on weekends to curb
the cost of having additional
staff fill in during those
times, meaning animal
control would respond to
emergencies, but not
nuisances.

Gene Donn
In Loving Memory of
Gene Donn
Husband, Father; Friend,
Brother and "Pop-Pop"
Can it be a year since one of my
best friends suddenly left its?
Sometimes, it seems like onlv days;
sometimes, it seems like forever. '
Gene Donn was not only my father-
in-law, but was also a mentor: He
taught me about life, as well as*
aboutan honest days work, as we
shared time under the hood of a car:
He was a wonderfid "Pop-Pop'to
my son and daughter. One of the
saddest things I have ever faced is
that they will never know hitn as I
did, through 11 years offriendship,
learning and growing. That 11
years feels like a lifetime of
friendship,- though it sometimes
feels like it passed in just days. My
only wish is that it could have been
much, much longer.
Gente was ad friend to all who knew
him. I never saw him turn awayi,
from anyone he could help. I
learned so many important things
from hnim; about life, mechanics,
any vehicle ever made and solving
problems we face every day.
Gene was the only person I ever
knew that could throw a wrench
and say very word in the book
before it hit the ground. If a car
made himnmad, he was really mad.
It brings a smile to my lips every
time I think about it.

Florida's extensive, trail
system. I r "
"February is the perfect
month tohike, one of Florida's

stewardship," said DEP's
Office of Greenways and Trails
Director Jena B. Brooks.
"Florida's greenways and trails
provide recreational and

Dear Editor:
Does anyone wonder how
much blame should be put on
the lawmakers who increase
speed limits for the fatalities
and injuries from those semi
truck crashes?,
An 80,000 pound machine
going 70 M.P.H. will do a lot
more darnmae than if it were
going 55, or if it were a car
only weighing 3,000 pounds.
The stopping distance is
greatly increased with more
speed and weight. The blame in
semi truck vs. other vehicle
crashes is always or ,usually
put on everything and anything
other than the speed of the big


Historic State Park.

Mr. Lewis,
'thanks'
Dear Editor:
As a resident of Riverbend
Estates where there is no
homeowners association and
the home owners have to
maintain their own roads due
to the codes or restrictions of
Bradford. County, we were
washed out by the rains from


the past two months. The dirt
road was partially washed away
with no way in or out unless
you had a 4x4.
After days of trying to get
someone to help, Eddie Lewis
came through, not once, but
twice. He went way above and
beyond, using his own
equipment and time to fix the
road.


All' the other people who
live on the same road, with an
exception of two or three, tried
to help. We thank them too. As
for the rest of you, we hope
you never have to suffer like
we did.
Mr. Lewis, "Thanks and God
bless!"
Wayne and Yvonne Norman

close for the summer," a
significant number of children
in low-income Florida

Program is designed to bridge
this summer nutrition gap. It
reimburses organizations for
serving free, nutritious
breakfasts, lunches or snacks to
children in eligible low-income
areas. However, the program
continues to be underutilized,
largely due to a lack of willing
operators and feeding sites.

Couple proves yo


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
You could not blame the
happy. couple for being
nervous. They were about to
take a big step int their-lives"'
and get married. --
It was a step, however, that
each had first taken more than
60 years ago.


Love conquers all, they say,
and that proved to be true in
the case of 93-year-old Rogers
Dansby and 84-year-old
Virginia Ekard, who tied 'the
.. knot Feb. '4 in a ceremony at
Camp Blanding.
I Ekard, who had been single
for the past 29 years, said she
never envisioned she would

"In fact, I said I would never
marry again," she said. "I'm

Ekard is not the only one
who thought another wedding
wasn't in her future.
"I think her daughters were
surprised after she had. been
single all those years," said
Janice Hall, Dansby's
daughter.
"They w re shocked," Ekard
admitted.
Dansby,i who has been. a
widow the past three years,
said the de vision to get married
seemed to be natural. ,,;
"'We just got together and
thought maybe it would be.
nice to have companionship
with each other for the rest of
our time-'whatever time the
lord gives us,'" Dansby said.
That's why Hall, who
admitted !she had mixed
feelings at first, was happy to
see this happen to her father.
"I was glad for Dad's sake
because I knew he got. awfully.
lonesome,'! Hall said, adding
that Ekard is a "nice, sweet
lady."
The- courtship began at
Madison Street Baptist Church
.in Starke, where both, Dansby
anid Ekard were members. For,,
Dansby, it ;was like a
schoolboy crush. He admired
how pretty Ekard's hair was.
and soon found himself sitting
behind her just so he could

Dansby expressed to others.
"He always had a smile and

she said.
The couple may be in their
80s and 90s, but that did not
make going out any easier.
"The first time we went out

said. "It was like being a

Keystone girls lose 49-35 in regional semifinals


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
Winter Park Trinity Prep's
*cold shooting heated up in" a
hurry and the Keystone
Heights girls basketball team
could not recover, losing 49-35
in a Region 2-Class 3A
semifinal game on Feb. 14 in
.Keystone.
Trinity Prep 23:3, which
plays for the Region 2
championship Saturday, Feb.
18, shot just 27 percent from
the field in .the first half, yet
trailed by just one point, .
The visitors then came out in
the third quarter and made 8--
pf-15 field goal attempts, four
of which were 3-pointers.
Leo Montalvo's 3-pointer
put Trinity up 21-19. Montalvo
then scored in transition after a,
steal by Samantha Shields,
followed by another 3-pointer


.by Jess Overmeyer.
While Trinity's shooting
was improving, Keystone's
was getting worse. The Iglians
(17-12) had only five field
goals in the second half, the
first of which did not come
until there was 1:49 remaining
in the third quarter. That came
on a short jumper by Jessica
Whitfield, which made the,
score 33-21...
Trinity's M-ontalvo
answered that with a 3-pointer,
:but the Indians 'were able to
pull to within seven after two
free throws by Whitfield and a
basket by Kim Russell.
Montalho drained a long 3-,
pointer that sent Trinity into
the fourth quarter up by 10.
,Kellie Spaulding had
consecutive baskets ,for
Keystone early in the fourth
quarter to pull her team within
eight, but that's as close as the


Indians would get.
Whiftield, who was 8-of-8
from',the foul line, led
Keystone with 14 points.
Russell had 10 points.
Trinity's Overmeyer led all
scorers with 16 points, while
Montalvo and Shields had 14
and 13 points.

Keystone used a 19-6 third-
quarter run to put the visiting


Dixie County Bears away in a
58-37 Region 2 quarterfinal
win on Feb. 9.
The Indians did hold a 12-
point lead at the half, but Dixie
cut it to nine points after a
basket by Vanessa Hollis.
Whitfield answered with a
basket of her own and that got
the Indians .rolling as they
recorded their. first regional
playoff win since 1999.
After Spaulding made two
free throws, Karlyn Reddish
scored two straight baskets for
Keystone following her own
steals. Whitfield then scored
two straight baskets before
Reddish came up with another
steal.
Reddish was fouled on the
way to the basket and made
one free throw to put the
Indians up 37-17.
Reddish, who added two
more baskets during the run,
and Whitfield had seven and
eight points, respectively, in
the quarter.
Russell scored three baskets
in the early stages of the fourth
quarter as the Indians pushed
their lead to 30. "
Each team struggled to make
shots in the first quarter, which

What. head. coach Shane
McFadyen termed a "great"
season came to. an end with an
85-51 loss to seventh-ranked
Andrew Jackson in a Region
2-Class 4A quarterfinal game
on Feb.'.9 in Jacksonville.
"They were a real solid
team," McFadyen said of
Jacksoh (26-3),. which played
East Gadsdem (21-5) in the
regional semifinals Feb. 14.
"Some of their strengths
directly correlated with some
of our weaknesses 'in regards
to their depth and their
presence down low."
McFadyen said the final
score was not indicative of
how his team played.
Bradford, which trailed 34-21
at the half, was able to cut the


Jackson's lead to seven in the
third quarter.
However, Bradford's lack of
depth 'became an 'issue as
fatigue set in and two players
fouled out. Jackson went on a
15-2 run in the game's final
three minutes.
Also, Jackson did a good job
of' finishing in
transition-something the
Tornadoes did not do.
"We forced them into
.numerous turnovers, but we
didn't capitalize on them as
well as they did," McFadyen
said.
Tosha Griffin and Khalaa
Hill each scored 17 points for
the Tornadoes, while Jerica
Warren finished with eight
points.I
The' loss was Bradford's
fifth in its last six games,
ending the Tornadoes' year


with a 16-5 record.

COUPLE
Continued from p. 2C

they were married before, was
a first as neither Dansby nor
Ekard took part in a proper
wedding the first'time around.
"Back when I got married to
start with, you just went out,
found a parson and some
,witnesses, got married and
went on about your business,"
Dansby said.'
That wedding occurred in
1931 in Dadeville, Ala. It
consisted of Dansby, his bride,
Frances, two of her friends and
the preacher.
Ekard married her first
husband, James,' in 1942. Their
wedding took place.in front of
her. parents and sisters at her
parents' house in Lake
Geneva.
Simple ceremonies, which
was how Ekard and Dansby
originally envisioned their
wedding. Ekard said she and
Dansby had plained just to go
and get married at. the
courthouse, but the interest
expressed by others in
attending transformed their
simple affair ,into a more
traditional church ceremony .
"I think there were a lot of
family 'members and friends
who wanted to go when they
found out about it," Ekard
said.. ,.
When Ekard married her
first husband, the couple drove
all night to North Carolina and
James Ekard's home town.
Ekard took part in another
drive following her marriage to
Dansby. The couple planned to
drive to Ozark, Ala., where
Dansby grew up, so Ekard
could meet his family
members who lived there.
Don't worry, though. The
couple did not plan to drive
continuously until they
reached their destination.
Dansby said they would most
likely stop by and stay the
night with his brother, who
lives in Georgia.
Dansby said he and Ekard
planned to just stay gone for a
couple of days.
"Then we're coming back
home and settle down for life,"
he said.

cap season

at regionals

BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer

The Feb. 10-11 Region 1-
Class A meet at.the Bolles
School in Jacksonville was just
too tough an obstacle for the
Bradford wrestlers .to
overcome as none qualified for
the state finals.
Bobby ; Andrews probably.
had the best chance of any
Bradford wrestler to advance,
but Bradford coach Rick Porter,
said the competition was just.
so formidable in the 152-
pound class, which included
many re lers ''.ho placed at
last yeai's finals.
"He really did deserve to go
to state, but our region was so
stacked in that weight class,"
Porter said.,
Having said that, Porter said
that Andrews did wrestle and
.was close to pulling offi what
would have been termed an,
upset that would have sent him
to state.
Andrews finished' 'the
tournament with a 2-2 record,
as did teammate Max Ennis
(119-pound class).
Donny Jarrett (130), Josh
Oliver (140), Alan Lin (160),
Mark Wininger (189) and Clay.
Koehler (215) each had a 1-2
record at the tournament, while e
Jeremy Agin (125) wa '0-2.
More than half of Bradford's
team' is comprised of freshmen
and sophomores, many of
whom wrestled for the-first
time this season. Porter hopes
those who participated in the
regional tournament for the
first time will' build upon that
experience next season.
"It was a good experience
for them to go see that
atmosphere," Porter said.

third attempt by Cameron
Moore.'
Keystone goalie Michael
McLeod made the save on
Moore's' attempt, giving the
Indians a chance. They took
advantage of it when Branden
Waters and Brad Gober each
converted on their kicks, while
the Highlanders' fourth
attempt as off the mark.
The Highlanders' fifth
attempt, b. Aaron Rasmussen,,
found the mark, however.
"This was a great high
school soccer match," Trevor
SWaters said. "I'm proud of my
boys. I felt like they competed
hard."
The two teams played ..a
scoreless- first half, with
McLeod thwarting a.
Highlanders' scoring
opportunity late in the half
when he tipped away a shot.
and made the save on the
rebound.
Zeroes remained on the
scoreboard until the 50t
minute when Keystone's
Dustin 'Hayre, 'following a
header by Rodel, headed a ball
into the right corner of the net.
The score stood at 1-0 in
favor of the Indians until the
Highlanders, who got a "little,
lucky bounce," according to
Waters, scored with less than
two minutes remaining.
Two scoreless, 10-minute
periods followed, sending the
match into the penalty-kick
round.
Though it was a loss, Waters
could see the positive strides
made by a young team, which
lost nine matches during the
regular season, won the
program's third straight district
championship and advanced to
the regional finals for the
