NAACP expresses concerns

over diversity to school board


BY LINDSEY KIRKLAND
Telegraph Staff Writer
The NAACP of Bradford
County voiced its concerns about
discrimination in the school
district at the Aug. 14 school
board meeting.
Pat Smith, president of the local,
chapter of the NAACP, and about
two dozen members of the
organization showed up to voice
their concerns about demotions of
black administrators, school
discipline and diversity training.,
.... Smith-eaid,..on belhealf of the
NAACP and the Concerned
Citizens of Bradford County, the
school board should riake sure it
adheres to guidelines about
preventing discrimination.
Excluding Bradford-Union
Area Career and Technical Center
director Clarence DeSqe, Smith
said only two administrators are
black, and they were recently
demoted.
Ulysses Woods was
reappointed from ESE director to
Bradford High School assistant
principal. Karl Wendell, who was
the BHS principal, was moved up
to the ESE director position.
"Many people expressed in the
school board town meetings in


2005 and 2006 their;
dissatisfaction with the lack of
communication and concern for
the high school and-- their
students," Smith said. "After all is
said and done, Mr. Wendell is
promoted to ESE director."
The second black administrator,
Earnest Williams, was
.reappointed from BHS assistant
principal to Bradford Middle.
School assistant principal.
Now, no blacks are in high
administrative positions, such as
principals and department
directors, Smith said.
d"Let me be clear. Our-concerns
are all top-level administrative
positions are without minority
leadership," she said.
"The phrase 'There are no
qualified African Americans' is no
longer true," she said.
The second request the NAACP
made was to "institute measures
to ensure that discipline policies
are consistently applied, and that
black males and females are not
more likely to receive school-
related referrals than their non-
black counterparts."
.--According to the on-site review
for the educational equity report
2004-2005, black students were


given a higher rate of in- and out-
ofischool suspensions, compared
to white students.
The third concern brought of by
the NAACP was the lack of-
mandatory diversity training.
Smith said all school board
employees should undergo
mandatory diversity training,
including school board members,
the superintendent, district-level
administrators, school bus drivers,
cafeteria .... workers,.
paraprofessionals, custodians and
-other staff.
"The clients of the NAACP are
children, parents, teachers,
administrators -and the
underserved and the under-
recognized," Smith said.
To better serve these people, the
SNAACP wants employees to have
classroom management, conflict
resolution and "meaningful"
diversity training.
After Smith's comments,
Superintendent Harry Hatcher
said the district does provide
diversity training for teachers who
want' to take part in it, but he
understands the NAACP would
like to make it mandatory for all
staff.

2 arrested


after holdup
BY CAROLYN EAVES
Telegraph Staff" Writer
Two people were arrested last week following
a late-night holdup at the Kangaroo Express in
Brooker.
Eddie Lee Coleman, 52, and Edwina Sue
Chastain Gregory, 43, both of Starke, were
apprehended in a vehicle that matched the
description of the getaway vehicle involved in
the robbery, according to Sgt. Wayne Mclntire.
An employee at the store reported being
robbed of an undetermined amount of cash, at
knifepoint by a black male wearing a white cap,
gray shirt and maroon shorts. The robbery was
captured on the store's security camera, Sgt.
Mclntire said. The suspect entered the store
around 10:30 p.m. and robbed the clerk of the:
.store's receipts while armed with a kitchen
knife. The man identified as Coleman, was seen
getting into an older model Buick sedan, driven
-by Gregory. -
As the deputy was approaching the scene, he
noticed the Buick eastbound on C.R. 18, just
west of Graham, Sgt. Mclntire 'said.
Coleman and Gregory were taken into
custody on charges of armed robbery, Sgt.
McIntire said. Coleman remains under a
$100,000 bond. Gregory is in custody under a
$50,000 bond.



Milerj: ail

needs plan

for expansion
BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor
Able to live. witkh.budget-constraints for the
time being, Sheriff Bob Milner told the county
commission last, week that a plan to add staff
and expand the jail should be put in place over
the next couple of years.
As County Manager Jim Crawford put it, a
dull knife and three trimming sessions were
necessary to. balance the sheriff's budgets for
law enforcement and jail operations before they
were presented to the county commission on
Aug. 17.
Crawford said Milner's budget has been
balanced with revenue from housing out-of-
county inmates. That revenue stream will also
pay for needed repairs to the jail facility as they
take place. If the money isn't there to cover
them, the board will have to put up the money or
the repairs will have to be cut.
The chance of that money being there is good.
Milner said there isn't enough room at .the jail
for all of the inmates the U.S. Marshals Service
would like to house there.

EMS talks about adding new station, but where?


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
I Telegraph Editor
i Included in; the county's
emergency medical services
budget. for 2006-2007 is the
cost of pulling another full-
time ambulance on the road.
The question to be answered is
where the new unit will be
housed.
EMS Director Nelson Green
called the addition of a unit
"'desperately needed."
i A part-time unit, he
explained, \'ill bee moved to
tull-time status, and another
part-time truck will be added.
SThat part-time truck will
primarily be committed' to
interfacility transports from
Hands at Starke.
"They are very upset at some-
of the delays that have been
incurred due to the. number of
t911) calls that we are
responding to," Green said.
'It's not uncommon for us to
ake three or four hours to get
one of the transfers."
Call volume has jumped
from around 3,800 calls last
year to 4,700 calls this year,
Green said, tying up units with
emergency response. But even
non-emergency" transfer trips
---can be urgent, he said. .
"If you're -laying there
having a heart attack, you don't
vant to wait four hours to get
over to AGH, North Florida or
JF to have catheterization
Slone,?'" said Green.
Unfortunately, that happens
sometimes."
Where to locate the new full-
ime unit has- been- "a big
wrestling match," according to
Green.
"I think ,conventional
wisdom is that it would go to
,awtey," Green said.
Lawtey has offered to house


RSWA to
eet Sept. 14
The New River Solid Waste
Association, the governing
hoard of the New River
Regional Landfill in Raiford,
will meet again on Thursday,
Sept. 14, at 5:30 p.m. in the
Wardroom at the landfill.
The association is comprised
o( county commissioners from
Eradford, Baker and Union
c untics, and its meetings are
open to the public. Agendas are
a ailable in advance: For more
information, call (386) 431-
Il)OO.


the truck and crew at no cost in
its renovated fire station, anid
Lawtey Councilman
Marvin Rosier has been a vocal
proponent of getting an EMS
truck located there.
County Manger Jim
Crawford said it's important to
remember that an EMS truck
there would reduce the
.response time for the first
emergency call, but one or
more additional- calls would
still have to wait for a response
from Starke or Theressa.
The same would be true of
locating the unit anywhere else.
"Where you physically
locate it can (make) some
difference on initial calls, but it
won't change tremendously the
overall response times,"
--Crawford said. "It's the second


call that kills you, or the third
one."
Green agreed, saying it's not
uncommon for the Theressa
unit to have to respond to a call
in the Lawtey area,
Based on a presentation
Green made to the board earlier
this year, the Brooker area has
the longest average response
time at-nearly 18 minutes one
way. In the Lawtey area, north
of Morgan Road, the average
response time is around 13
minutes.
- If the decision is not based
on response time but on the
number of calls received per
area, the southern end of the
county actually places more
calls for service than the
northern end.
Green said the .county.

commission would decide
where to locate the additional
unit. -Among the scenarios
Green offered, however, was a
unit at Morgan Road and a unit
at Sampson City, where
volunteers are at work on a new
fire station. There would be
some additional capital costs
that the county commission
would have to absorb, Green
said. ..
Crawford said he and the
EMS department owed the
board several alternatives
before asking commissioners
to make a decision. Chairman.
-John Wayne Hersey said cost
needed to be considered in that
analysis.


The day is coming, Hersey
said, when the board is going to
have to consider joining
emergency rescue with a paid
firefighting service as Fire
Chief Percy Sullivan
demonstrated in his budget
request.
The new EMS budget
contains $1.81 million.,
compared to $1.76 million for
2005-2006.
The cost of adding staff to
take the part-time unit to full-
time status is more than
$128,000. The 60-hour, part-
time unity will cost $79,500,
and $13,550 has been included
for unit relocation costs.

WILBUR L WATERS
My name is Wilbur Waters and I am asking for your i
vote on September 5th to.'continue to be your District 5 A
City Commissioner. As an active City Commissioner I
have seen a lot of positive changes in our city. I was a past
commissioner during the years of 1976 through 1980 and
I am currently finishing out a one year term.
Starke is a city we all can be proud of. I pledge to
continue to work hard.forYOU and the citizens of Starke.
I will continue to support managed growth. I totally
support bringing special events to our area, for example
the Starke Bike Fest. As a Iwhole, the city and county
received unexpected revenue from this well managed
event. I strongly support all entities, such as the Chamber
of Commerce, Bradford County School Board andi'-the
City of Starke working together to pool our resources. I
continue to support the help from the Department of
Corrections, for the beautification of The City of Starke's right of ways. This is a huge savings to the
City of Starke taxpayers. I would like to develop a capital improvement plan to resurface our city
streets and add much needed parking for downtown. I will also continue to work with the
Department of Transportation to implement and fund a plan to ease the current congested traffic
situation on US highway 301. I am against any increase in taxes. The City Commissioners
recently voted NOT to increase our tax mills for the City of Starke fiscal year 2006-2007.
The present Starke City Commission has extended water lines to the Lake Wood area, after 10
years of promises. The present commission has a working budget of over 17 million dollars, with
capital improvement money for the first time in a number of years. We will have the funds to
purchase much needed equipment to maintain the City of Starke's infrastructure more effectively.
The present commission will make the necessary up grades to the Starke Electric Distribution
System.., for the first time in over 20 years. This electrical upgrade will result in lower power line
loses and a reduction in cost to the citizens of Starke, by a lower fuel adjustment. This present
commission has also appointed a utility advisory board to evaluate and make recommendations to
the City Commission regarding Starke's Utilities. The present commission has the highest number
of grants ever funded in the city's history, with a $ 750,000.00 Community Development Block
Grant and $ 400,000.00 Recreational Grant. These are only some of the accomplishment I have had
the privilege to be a part of as your City Commissioner for District 5, this past year.
EXERCISE YOUR RIGHT TO VOTE...,YOUR VOTE COULD MAKE THE DIFFERENCE.
Wilbur L. Waters.

School Board District 2


"Keep A Man Who Is Qualified"

A school board member must have knowledge in many areas, some of which are
curriculum, school finance, school law, and building & construction. I have had
extensive training in all of these areas.

I have been a dedicated school board member, (never missing a meeting in my 4
year term) keeping school business first, attending workshops and training sessions
to keep the district up to date.

My former teaching experience, numerous workshops, along with serving 4 years
on the school board gives me. the valuable knowledge needed to be a productive
andsuccessful school board member.

Our school district has two A schools and no D or F schools.

Administrative changes, enforced code of conduct, as well as zero tolerance
discipline policy at Bradford High School has brought positive results according to
student, parent, and teacher feed back.

I will continue to fight to keep our district moving forward, improve overall
student achievement, as well as support ongoing construction to improve
classrooms and student learning environment.

Raises have been given to employees every year of my tenure as board member,
including the present raise which will be presented for final approval at the next
scheduled school board meeting.

Keep my years of Training and Experience at work

Increasing salaries., more than
$63,000 raises that line item to more
than $566,000.
Director Paul Funderburk explained


most of the increase results from the
annual 3 percent pay raise offered to
employees. Around 25 percent .of the
increase, however, is money included
to raise employees' salaries to w within
range of the county's new pay plan
(see chart,.).
"With that 25 percent, it still doesn't
bring us up to. the standard,"
Funderburk said. "That will be a
start."
Gasoline costs are up to $170,000'
next year, a $50,000 increase. Diesel
costs are up .to $150,000, a $30,000.

teachers train

summer away
While others were enjoying
their summer vacation, Lawtey
Community School teachers
were-able-to participate iin the
Florida SUMS Institute at P. K.
Young in Gainesville. The five-
day training took place from
June 9Q23. Select schools from
various counties \\ere able to
parnci ale.': -.. ...
SUMS (Studenits Using
Mathematics Skillfully)
training is for those teachers
who teach mathematics in the
classroom. The training was
grade-level specific, so
teachers were able. to gain
knowledge,. participate in
! hands-on activities and study
new--mateiial-wtlftihtchers
from other counties teaching
the same grade level.
The LCS teachers all agreed
they had great trainers who
gave them new information -
and tools for teaching math.
ESE inclusion, teacher .Jenny
Anfinson said, "The hands-on
activities willbe great for those
students who need a more
concrete form of understanding
math concepts." ,.
Each teacher was given a bag
containing books, counting and
fraction cubes, and many other
hands on tools,
Part of the training also tied
writing in with mathematics.
Nancy Alvarez a fourth-grade
teacher at Lawtey who teaches
writing was inspired by the
new ideas. SUMS also showed
the teachers the importance of
language and vocabulary in
learning mathematics.
Lawtey faculty formed an


action plan for using SUMS at
their school. which includes
data collection and progress
monitoring, and they are
looking forward to a Family
Math Night.
LCS faculty will attend the
next two phases of SUMS in
the summers of 2007 and 2008.
In addition to the weeklong
SUMS workshop, Lawtey
Community School 'teachers
participated in curriculum
mapping for a week'and a half
over the summer. Curriculum
mapping -' uses-"'" stud '
assessment as information for
improvement. It directs teacher
planning and instruction to
better facilitate student
learning.
LCS curriculum mapping


began wth Linda Bennett,
Charlotte Durrance. Lisa
Prevatt, Sandi Tomlinson and
Julie Whiteacre attending two
Northeast Florida Educational
Consortium "Train the Trainer"
sessions in May. The LCS
training team gathered
information, data and supplies
to work with teachers in
mapping the math curriculum
for the school year. '

ESE director faces new job challenges


BY LINDSEY KIRKLAND
Telegraph Staff Writer
Appointed to his new
position during the summer,
Karl 'Wendell is looking
forward to a different pace as
Bradford County School's ESE
director.
The exceptional student
education department deals
with services for students who
are challenged by a.learning or
physical disability, as well as
students who are academically
talented.
As of December 2005, there
were 890 students in ihe school
district who were eligible for
ESE services.
The budget to serve these
students comes from several
places, Wendell said.
Allocations from the state of
Florida usually cover only
teacher salaries. The school
district has about 25-30 ESE-
related teachers each year.
""" The' second type of funding
'is grant money, such as the
Individuals with Disabilities
Education Act (IDEA) grant,
'which brings in more than a
million dollars.
This pays for salaries,
pa rapt ofess ion a Is,
instructional materials,
assistive technology, a parent
liaison and education and pre-
K I% el services (Child Find).
Money in the ESE budget
allows Wendell and his staff to
identify-- students with
disabilities at all levels.
"The good news is we're
finding students with
disabilities earlier," Wendell
said of the program called
Child Find.
The ESE department has to
meet the needs of students
from age 3-22.
For older students, Wendell
said they teach them job-ready
skills. They also have a
partnership with Sunshine
Industries to employ these
students after they leave the
school system.
"It's a real broad range of
services," he said.
Some of. the money,
however, depends on the needs
of different students.
Wendell said he probably
.only has control of $1.1
million of the total ESE
budget.
"One of the things I try to do
is be a resource for the schools.
My job is to serve students in
the classroom."
He said he sits in on IEP
meetings. An IEP is-a plan of
education that is individualized
for a particular student based
on his/her learning disability.
Last week, Wendell visited
classrooms at 1Southside and
Starke Elementary schools to
see what resources they
needed.
"That's the best way to
determine where resources
need to go," he said.
While Wendell deals with
fewer students than he did as
the principal of Bradford High
School, he said, "The job is
every bit as challenging."


He does not see students on
a day-to-day basis.anymore but
still has, to do some
curriculum development,
human resources and
coordination of resources.
"There are a lot of demands,
but it's not as fast," he said.
Another .challenge of
Wendell's job was the gifted
program's lack of a budget.
Gifted programs fall under
the ESE, department, but ihic
do not get much, if any,.
funding from' the state or local
level.
Wendell worked with
teachers and Finance Director
Julee Tinsler to create a budget
for the district's gifted
teachers, Lilly Chappell and
Adrian McClain. Chappell
teaches countywide gifted
students at the elementary
level, 'and McClain teaches
them at the, secondary level.
The budget allows $7,000
for ,the elementary gifted
program and $7,000 for the
secondary gifted programs.
The money came from the
school district's general fund.
The money can be used for
"virtually anything they need it
for," Wendell said.
"It's going to allow ,our
gifted teachers to be more
creative," he said.
Chappell said, "We (the
gifted teachers) requested a
budget because of the need."
The board "blessed us with a
budget," she said.
McClain and Chappell were


ecstatic about the funding and
*were looking into ways to get
the most out of the money.
'You %wouldn't believe how
a budget just opened the world d
forus," Chappell said. i
New classroom computers
and supplies may be where a
lot of the money goes, but she
said they are currently looking
into Web-based programs,
such as the one created by
Joseph Renzouli.
The program: gives .virtual
field trips and other interactive
assignments.,
Wendell said, "It would give
a student access to programs
outside of school.''
The budget sends a message
that the district cares about the
approximately'140-150 gifted
students, he said,
"We want to accelerate

students ready for that."
The number of gifted and
ESE students s o\ crail .could
increase as more students are
tested couhtywide throughout
the year on the elementary and
secondary levels.

S' ..... Wildfire threat remains due to

shortage of summer rain


Florida Agriculture and
Consumer Services
Commissioner Charles H.
Bronson said this week that
. despite intermittent rain this
summer, showers have not
come with sufficient frequency
to ease the wildfire threat. As a
result, Floridians need to
remain cautious with all
outdoor fires.
"The summer rainy season
has been unusual and has not
developed like we had hoped."
Bronson said. "Normally, we
would be out of wildfire danger
by now." '
The KBDI, or Keetch-Byram
Drought Index, is a way that
scientists measure the amount


of moisture in the upper 36
inches of the soil. Readings are
given on a scale of 0 (saturated
soil) to 800 (desert-like
conditions). High values of the
KBDI mean that conditions are
favorable for the occurrence
and spread of wildfires.
Typically in August, the
KBDI registers in the 100 to
200 range. The current
statewide average KBDI
reading of 442,:which is more
typical of late spring when
wildfire danger is high, is
testimony to lack of adequate
summer rainfall.
. Bronson is concerned that
under these conditions, the
residual debris in forests from


recent hurricanes and tropical
storms will fuel bigger and
more destructive wildfires.
"Until we get more rainfall
and more widespread rainfall,
the large amount of uprooted or
dead and dying Irces and shrubs
will make conditions very
dangerous for our wildland
firefighters," Bronson said.
Florida averages about 5,000
wildfires each year. Since Jan.
1, 4,195 wildfires have.burned
214,646.2 acres .and destroyed
43 homes, and 164 other
structures. Meanwhile,
thousands of homes and other
structures have been saved as a
result of the efforts of
firefighters.

parking problem.
SAfter a presentation at a

;:Santa Fe Community
College's Educator Preparation
Institute graduated its first class
of 12 new this week in the
President' Lobby of the Alan J.
Robertson Administration
Building.
EPI is a one-year, 21-credit
program that trains people with
bachelor's degrees in any
subject to be K-12 teachers. In
addition to their coursework,
students also get a one-week
intensive classroom immersion
experience. EPI graduates
qualify for a professional
teaching certificate.
': All but two of the current
graduating class of 12 teachers
ate already hired, said Robin
Edwards, EPI coordinator. In
fact, one-third are already
working as teachers.
"They did really well on their
interviews," said Edwards. "I
had very positive feedback on
their interviews, that they really
know the professional lingo."


campus.
Administrators looked at
revamping the parking
rules after student and parent
complaints in previous years.
Eighty-three spots will be
available for seniors to park on
campus, including next to the
gym, tennis courts and front lot
by the administration building.
This is a change from last
year where 10th-, llth- and
12th-graders could park on
campus only if they were co-
op or dual enrollment students.


Seniors got no priority if they
were not part of this group.
This leaves all
underclassmen parking in the
underclassmen lot beside the
Rainbow Center on
Washington Street.
Parking decals for the 2006-
2007 school year were
increased from $10 to $15, and
they had to be purchased by
last week. Lockers were $3.
If there are any questions
regarding parking, see Lisa
Paladino.

Alachua County Schools
Superintendent Dan Boyd,
Bradford County Schools
Assistant Superintendent Rick
Ezzell and various Santa Fe
administrators attended the
graduation, along with family
members.
These new -teachers will be
employed at Gainesville High
School, Ft. Clarke Middle
School and in Bradford County
schools. Some were hired
outside this area.
"About a third of this group
are already working as teachers
in Bradford County, they just
haven't graduated yet," said
Edwards. "Some have gone on
to private schools such as St.
Francis High School and
Gainesville Country Day
School."

Bradford County has paid!
threec-months worth of hills
owed to the city of Starke for
animal. control services but
requested that the county
manager sit down with the city
to discuss future billings..
All told, the bills amounted
to around $13,000, but the
county's $25,000. animal'
control budget for the year has
already been exhausted, and it
projects spending $50.000( by
the end of this fiscal qycle.
.County commissioners are
concerned that the city
increased the amount it was
billing the county for animal
control to cover, among other-
things, upgrades to the animal
shelter.
Rather than continue to be
billed in this way, County .
Manager Jim Crawford said he
has asked to sit down with the
city to determine what the
county's fair share of facility
upgrades would be '

said. "I just don't know where

"An agreement is an.

Ross Chandler said of the.
interlocal agreement: the city
and county signed regarding
animal control services. That
"agreement, which governed
how the county and others
would be billed, has since-
expired. "If you're going to
make. changes,, we should bhe
told prior to billing us that
You're making changes, and,
this:is.what it's going to cost.'"
. Chandler said it needs to be
clear how many times the
county is going to pay the city
to pick up the same dog, for
example, referring to a
particular incident in which a!
resident was bitten and the
wrong dog was picked up.
. "To me that's incompetence,


sa iu. -
Also, Chairman John Wayne
Hersey said the interlocal
agreement the board signed did
not cover the county paying for
facility upgrades.
."We're getting bills that are
double what we budget
without, really, our say-so on
what's going on (on the city's
end)," he said.
Hersey said he didn't have a
problem with the county
fulfilling its obligation, but the
county is 'not a handout

'"If it's through
mismanagement, or mis-
-whatever, on the other end, that
needs to get corrected. For us
to shell out money on a non-
corrected program, I've got
problems with that," Hersey
said.
Other options the county
manager has explored include
taking dogs to shelters in
Alachua or Clay counties, but

Commissioner' Doyle
Thomas called animal control a
necessary evil. He said there
should be a program, a humane
one, and he didn't want the
county operate a program of its
own.
"I think the city is doing a
pretty good job with what
they've got to work with,'
Thomas said, and Crawford
agreed.
"That's been a real headache
to them because tht) had poor
facilities, and ihce'\e done. a
real good job improving those
with a lot of charitable gifts
from kind people who've
helped them," Crawford said..
While the county should
support the city's efforts,
Crawford said they have to get
a handle on policies, like
having the public pay for shots-
and sterilization before an'
animal is adopted.

isn't against the "good work"
that PAWS is doing, but the
commission .has to consider
what it can afford.
Commissioner John Cooper
said he didn't have a problem
trying, to find the additional
money to pay the amount the
city hag billed the county, but.at
the same time he wanted to
revisit the interlocal agreement
.and determine just. how much
the county's share should be
based on that agreement.
"I don't mind honoring the

JAIL: New facility proposed
Continued from p. 1A


Money for those the jail has
.ben able to house will result
in a $240,000 rollover to meet
capital outlay .costs in the
coming fiscal year.
That revenue keeps the,
sheriff's office -anid jail
running. This year it has.
coveted nearly $600.000 in
expenses from jail
maintenance, loan retirement
and inmate medical bills to the
replacement of computers.
carpet and furniture. The
furniture alone was more than
$91,000, but Milner explained
nothing has'been replaced in
the 11 years since the jail has
been standing, even when'
everything in the courthouse
was being replaced during the
expansion project.
"The courts and everyone.
else got new, stuff, the sheriff's
office didn't. So we're 11 years'
old and our stuff really looks
like Fido's rear end,." said the
immensely quotable Milner.
"This money's allowed us to'
do all tha."'
'" Beyond redecorating, "he"
inriatef housing revenue also
paid for more than $900,000 in
personnel, and operational
costs that were not covered in
the approved 2005-06 budget.
including $50,000 more in
increased fuel costs. While
$400,000 of that amount are
costs related' to housing the:
federal marshal's inmates, the
other half million dollars
represents the difference
between the board the budget
approves and the cost of"
'providing law enforcement and
jail services. Milner said.
"Yes, it's all paid. It's totally
covered by the U.S. Marshals,
and it's allowed us
improvements. However. we
collectively, you and I, have to
pony up over the next two
years and close this gap. in my
opinion," he told the.
commission."
According to Milner, needs,
accomplished with the.
marshal's 'revenue over the
past year comprised items on:
the "must-do list." and there's:
more to be accomplished.
Since 1999, for example,:
there's been no increase in the"
three deputies per shift
patrolling the county.
Beyond staff increases,-
Milner said there needs to be a
plan for expanding the 11-1
year-old jail. He offered his
approach to expansion, saying
a new dormitory-st)le building
behind the existing jail could
be used to house minimum-
security inmates, while
maximum-security inmates,.
including those from the U.S.'
Marshals Service, would
continue to be housed in the.
existing facility.
The county would be able to
house even more inmates from
the federal marshals,
increasing that revenue stream
to pay for the new building. An
additional 20 inmates at $50 a
day could raise an additional
$365,000 (minus 40 percent to
pay for housing costs) and pay
for the new dorm.
Housing revenue isn't the
only reason to expand the jail,
Milner said;
"We need to get ready for
the fact that we're going to
have more inmates," he said,
noting newspaper articles that
point to a nationwide trend in
the number of inmates being
housed in prisons and jails,
often for nonviolent drug
offenses.
Growth is also going to
require additional deputies, the
sheriff said. In Baker County,
another county "programmed


for growth." Milner said. the
number of full-time deputies
.has increased from 26 to 45
since 1997. Jail population has
also grown in Baker.
"I'm not a forecaster, but
I'm telling you, we're right
behind them," Milner said of
the potential for growth in this
county. Calls for service are up
even though crime is. not, he
said, and that will continue as
the number of people living in.
the county grows.
Outside. of' the increased
capacity to. house federal
inmates, Milner said, Ihe
county is going to need that
space for its own inmate
population a few years from
now.
Where would the new
dormitory, be built? Milner
suggested' moving the road
department from its location
on Grand Strqet behind the
present jail, and building the
new facility there. He asked
the board and county manager
Sto.hgin,%vorking on ,a planb.to
move that department this year..
'- ainT telling y6ou 'all w'~it'
to do. I'm .-letting you know
that. we're going to need
another jail or some expansion
out of necessity, let alone out
of the luxury of housing
additional marshals inmates,
within two to three years,"'
Milner said.
In addition to expanded
space, there is also the ongoing
maintenance needed as the jail
..gets older, including
replacement of a recalled
sprinkler system and worn-out
locks and doors. Replacement
of Ihese items will begin in the
coming year.

Summary
The jail budget for 2006-
2007 contains $:1.42 million in.
personnel costs and $315,000
in operational costs, for a total
of $1.73 million
The sheriff's office budget
contains $1.57 million in
personnel costs and $250,000
in operational costs, for a total
of $1.82 million
The court operating
budget, where the primary
expenditures are $250,000 for
utilities and $85,000 in costs
for the medical examiner,
amounts to nearly $403,000.
The total for these funds is
$3.95 million, compared to
$3.72 million this year.

Other officers
'The budgets for some or the
county's other constitutional
officers break down as follows:
Supervisor of Elections
Terry Vaughan's budget is
down from $408,000 to'
$346,000, although it contains
money for a new full-time
position. Deputy Supervisor
Carol Milner will be promoted
to the new position of chief
deputy, 'and part-time
employee Amanda Seyfang
will become a' full-time
employee and step into the
deputy supervisor position.
Clerk of Courts Ray
Norman's budget increased
$25,000 to $550,000, with the
increase split between
personnel and operating costs.
Property Appraiser Jimmy
Alvarez' budget is up to
$535,000 from $481,000,
primarily due to personnel
expenses.
County Manager Jim
Crawford received a $5,000
raise with the renewal of his
contract, bringing his salary to
$65,000. Overall the budget
for .that office is up around
$8,000 to $138,000.
The commission's own
budget is down from $4.4


million to $4.04 million. The
overall budget is currently
balanced at $30.3 million,
compared to $31.2 million for
2005-2006.

comprehensive Internet service

"Help is out there. but efforts
have not gone far enough to
sign up low-income seniors for

other benefits," said Stuart
Spector, senior vice president
of NCOA. "And the problem
gets bigger as 60.t000 people a

alone."
As such, BencfitsCheckUlp

How to eat
healthy year-
round
(SPM Wire) With holidays,
vacations, and family
celebrations seemingly upon us
all year long, eating healthfully
can sometimes be a challenge.
Eating right, even %while on
vacation, is a key step to
staying healthy, looking great
and most importantly, keeping:
ailments like diabetes in check.
Here are some tips from The
National Diabetes Education
Program for anyone interested
in eating healthful meals while
still enjoying the foods that
every season has to offer.
At a buffet, start by scanning


the -table to see what is
available. Fill up your plate
with mostly vegetables .and
whole grains. If there arc meat
dishes, limit your portion to
about the size and thickness of
a deck of cards.
Choose lean meals, poultry
or fish instead of high fat meats
such as barbccucd ribs. Choose
grilled chicken (remove the
skin) instead of something
fried.
Look for high-fiber foods.
such as dried beans and peas,
lentils and dark green
vegetables such as broccoli.
cabbage, spinach and kale.
. Dishes with green beans,
three-beans, black beans and
black-eyed peas are always.
good choices, as are whole
grain foods such as brown rice,-
couscous, ,\holc wheat bread.
and pasla.
Watch put .fr fatty foods.
Avoid dishes. with a lot of
mayonnaise, sour cream and
butter. Choose veggies that are
light on dressing and cheese'.
For fun. tIr making your own
dressing ilih a hidelc olive oil
and vinegar. .
If you make a .,ind\kich. ue"
whole wheat. bread %\ilh
mustard or salsa instead of
mayonnaise.
Try to drink water.
unsweetened tea, or diet soda
with your meal. If you choosc
to drink alcoholic beverages.
drink only with a meal and do
not drink more than onie (for
women) or two (for men) per
day.
Don't forget dessert!
Desscrl is a great opportunity
to get in, some of your daily,
fruit intake. Everyone -
including people '%iih diabcics,
- needs three ti fIur-, scr' ing, of


fruit a day. Fruit is an excellent
source of fibr. amins and
minerals. and has zcro la;t. "

Developing
good study
habits
(SPM Wire) With so many
distractions tugging at kids
these days, it's no wonder it's.
hard for some students 'to'.
develop good homework and
study routines.
Some simple iips. however.
can help parents help their
children establish beltter.habits
and work environments for
homework success.
As such, the experts" at the
American Academy .' of
Pediatrics are: offering some
homework advice for parents'
and kids, alike:
Create an environment that
is conducive to doing
homework. Youngsters need a
permanent work space in heir
bedroom or another part of the
home ihal offers privacy.
Set aside ample lime for
homework.
Establish a household rule
that Ihe TV set slays off during
homework lime.
Be available to answer
questions and offer assistance,
but never do a child's
homework for him or her.
To help .alleviate eye


Fatigue neck fatigue. and. brain
.fatigue while studyinig, it's
recommended that youngsters
close the hooks for 10 minutes,.
every hour and go do
something else.
If your child is struggling
with a particular subject. and
you aren't able to help him or
her yourself. a tutor' can he a
good solution. Talk it over with
your child's teacher first:

BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Edi_.- -
The Bradford Counti
Commission has cleared ihe
way -for proposed-hranges-in--
the _pattern __of its urban
development areas to hbe
reviewed by the state.
Pending comment bIy the
Fl6rida Department of
Community Affair., the
commission plans to Lxpand
urban development areas
around Starke and KeMsionc
Heights while reducing similarr
areas around Lawtcy and
Hampton.
Doing so requires
amendments to the counts '
future land use.map that will
increase the allowed housing
density of some properties and
reduce it on others. The
fundamental- -dittcrence---of
areas designated. for urban
development is the housing
density allowed. .
The amendments involve
land use changes on thousands
of acres of property.-- --
It DCA agrees, the county
plans to:
Reduce the urban
development area north of
Lawtey by 320 acres. Land use
will. revert from -residenitial,

Shelves ready for new library


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD .
Telegraph Editor
Bradford County Public
Library Director Phalbe
Henriksen didn't hesitate to
answer in the affirmative when
Hang Soohoo from the
University of Florida's
Smathers Library called to ask
if she was interested in
shelving the college no longer
needed.
Saying yes was the easy
part, however. Getting the
shelves -from GainhesvilI-e--
Starke was another story, but
the enormous task of moving
.the shelving was accomplished
over a few days thanks to a
number of county and school
district staff members.
Henriksen thanked Otha
Miller and the instructors from
the Bradford-Union Area
Career and Technical Center,
Brian Johns and Wendy
Spierer of the county's
emergency management
department,-Pa-trF-un-der-ik---
and the road department,
Sheriff Bob Milner and his


inmate crew, and Ray Norman
and Chub Johnson. of the
Bradford County Fair
Association, which is lending
space to store the shelving
until the new public library is
built.
According to Henriksen, it
took two trips for each of the
road department's two flatbed
trucks and two trips for each of
the trucking program's two
tractor-trailers to haul the load,
to the fairgrounds.
-The value- of-the- shelves-
received exceeds $200,000,.
Henriksen said, not including
the-shelves that will go to the
new library planned in Union'
County. /
The library has been
permitted and the site plan
approved. The new facility will
quintuple the space available
now and offer more computers,

Working to provide the best health care at home


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
Home is where the heart is,
and the hearts of Gayle Nicula
and Andrea Waterhouse can be
found at Shands Starke, where
the two have worked many
years as nurses, rising through
the ranks and earning two
recent promotions.
In April, Nicula was named
the hospital's director of
quality and support services.
She is responsible for the
emergency department,
dietary, central
supply/purchasing, medical
records, clinical education,
environment, utilization
review, infection control and
staff education.
Waterhouse, who previously
held that position, was
promoted to director of patient
services after the retirement of
Martha' Epps. She is
responsible for the pharmacy,
Shands Medical' Group
(clinic), medical surgery
nursing, surgery, physical
therapy, respiratory therapy
and admissions.
The two began working at
Shands Starke six months after
graduating from nursing
school at Lake City
Community College in 1981
(back when the hospital was
known as Bradford Hospital),
but they were familiar with the
hospital before that. Both
Nicula and Waterhouse are
Bradford High School
graduates.


--.. '-'5


Gayle Nicula (left) and Andrea Waterhouse take a
look at financial data at Shands Starke. Nicula was
named the hospital's director of quality and support
services in April, while Waterhouse, who previously
held the position, was named as the new director of


patient services.

Therefore, Nicula and
Waterhouse, whose homes
remain in Bradford County,
,have had many opportunities
to see' and care for familiar
faces while working at' the
hospital.
"When people come in and
see a familiar face, that makes
them feel more at ease," said


Nicula, a 1977 BHS graduate,
who is the daughter of George
and Valaria Shuford.
"It makes people feel very
, good when they see Gayle or
me there," said Waterhouse,
who is also the hospital's chief
nursing officer. "It makes them
feel better. They trust that
we're going to take care of
them. That's the greatest thing
about %working here."
Waterhouse, a 1979 BHS
graduate; grew up in the
hospital's .shadow. The
daughter of Jack (deceased)
and Carolyn 'Eaves, she grew.
up just a short walk from the
hospital on Colley Road,


where her mother still lives.
Waterhouse remembers, that
her brother had his tonsils
removed at the hospital, while
she was taken there when she
was in a wreck as a teenager.
In fact, she was even born at
the hospital when doctors still
delivered babies there.
"It was a part of our growing
up," she said.
That helped plant the seeds
of her wanting to become a,
nurse. That and the fact her
grandmother, Bernadine Early,
volunteered at the hospital as a
member of the Auxiliary. So
when a friend of hers asked her
if she wanted to go to nursing'
school in Lake City,
Waterhouse agreed.
Nicula, who grew up in
Lawtey, may not have been in
the hospital's shadow-though
her father did serve on its
board of directors for 28
years-but-, she remembers
wanting to be a nurse since she
was a child.
"I love caring for patients,"
she said.
So she, like Waterhouse,
went to Lake City Community
College. The two women did
not know each other very well,
but they soon became good
friends.
"Immediately, we just
bonded," Waterhouse said.
The two could ride with
each other to Lake City, but.
more .importantly, they could
lean on each other for support
during the rigors of nursing
school.
. "I couldn't have done it
without her," Nicula said.
Nicula and Waterh6use
began working at Alachua
General Hospital after.
graduating, but it did' not take
them long to find their way to
their hometown hospital.
Waterhouse said thanks go to

:Epps for that. The two were
still on probation at AGH,
meaning they couldn't leave
for another job, but Epps
"stole" the young ,nurses,
Waterhouse said, by calling
the chief nurse at AGH and
saying the Starke hospital
needed them more than AGH
did.
That was November: 1981.
Though they have not always
worked together since
then-Waterhouse, for
example, returned to AGH and
also taught at LCCC--they
stuck together when it came to
continuing their education.
'They went to the-University of
North Florida, earning their
bachelor's degrees in nursing
inm the late 1980s. They
received their master's degrees
from the University of Phoenix
in 2000.
"We have transcripts
everywhere," Waterhouse said.
The two had a goal to
graduate from the University
of Florida one day,
Waterhouse said. They did just
that in December 2005, after


going through the school's
family nurse practitioner
program.
In March, they passed
national certification, with
their promotions follow ing
shortly thereafter.
The two have seen a lot of
changes take place at the
hospital. Now, they can take
an active part in future
changes, relying on their past
experiences at the hospital to
help them. It is their desire to
see the hospital continue to
improve.
"If you're from this area,
you really want (the hospital)
to be a success," Nicula said.
"You really want the hospital
to grow."
It has grown. Sixteen
specialists work at the hospital
on a rotating basis, while the
operating room allows patients
to undergo general surgical
procedures (appendix, colon,
gall bladder, for example).
Nicula said people really have
no reason to travel elsewhere

engine and four-blade prop gave the
plane a top speed of 430 mph in a
rugged frame that could withstand
any aerial maneuver without damage.
The Thunderbolts held *their own
with the celebrated German
Messerschmitt and Focke-Wulf
fighters in the skies over Germany, in
aerial-dog-fights,-and protected heavy
bombers on missions carrying the war
into the heartland of Herr Hitler. It:
was a great plane, but the days for,
prop-driven planes were coming to an
end.
At the end of February 1943, I was,
promoted to sergeant, which paid $78-
per month plus a housing allowance
for married men living off the post..
The pay increase enabled me to get
married and move, into a northern
family's small winter home in an
orange grove. In spite of a war going
on, life was good to us.,
One.. summer afternoon after
arrviviln;'lier I head -a niiose like
that of a freight train, but I realized
the rail line ended not far from our
house.- As I looked out the door I saw
a tornado bearing down on us. It
struck the house immediately and
knocked it off its blocks, breaking
plumbing and electric lines.
Otherwise, it inflicted no damage, and
we, were riot injured. We lived with
friends for the few days required to
repair the house.
An uneventful summer came and
went, but now we began to get
returning combat veterans. The CO of

fighter pilot that had completed his 25

to drive the family car, but by the time
he was 21 he was a veteran combat
pilot, Boys became men quickly in
the military service.
The Air Corps was expanding
rapidly, and' attaining rank was
primarily a task of doing one's job
and staying out of trouble. In the fall
of the year, the top sergeants in the
photo lab (both single), weary ,of
routine, transferred to groups trained
at VAAB and sailed for England.' A
friend and I were promoted to
technical sergeant and staff sergeant,.
respectively. A month later, when the
position again became vacant, I was
promoted to technical sergeant, the
top rank available for a photo lab
technician. I remained in that rank
until I was discharged, Dec. 9, 1945.
The technical sergeant rank is one
grade below master sergeant, the top
enlisted grade in the Army at the time,
and available to a limited number of
positions in a squadron. Since that.
time enlisted grades have been
changed, and among other changes is
the addition of a super master
sergeant grade. It is one of the best
positions in the military, respected by
both officers and enlisted personnel.
Permanent personnel at VAAB
enjoyed a lifestyle unknown to men
and women in other branches of
military service, and many were
married and lived off the post. Some

with me throughout my military
career, and would not desert me

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR


Reader
concerned

about 911
response
Dear Editor:
On August 13, while
visiting my son in Starke, I
awoke with intense pain and
partial paralysis of my lesand -
feet. A-78 years old and with
the medical problems that
accompany most seniors, this
was a cause for concern, not
only on my part. My son was
very concerned for the
possibility of a blood "clot in
my legs and the need for
immediate medical help and
called 911.
It took three attempts before
someone finally answered'the
911 phone line. Twice he
dialed and let it ring for as
many as 10 to 15 rings and
finally, on the third attempt
after about 10 rings, a female
voice answered and my son
gave her the information to get
the ambulance and paramedics
on their way.
He then told her that he had
ito make three attempts to get
ithe call through and how long
the phone rang. Her reply was:
"I have to get someone to
check this out. I saw the lights
!flashing, but I did not know
Why they were flashing."
My question is: Was the so
called malfunction checked or
swept under the rug?
Also, if a'ringer is turned off
and the person is sleeping or
away from the phone, the
lights alone will not alert or


wake them.'
SI wonder about people
needing the 911 service in the
future when the calls go
unanswered and time is of the
essence. Negligence on the part
of a 911 operator could cause
death or permanent injury at a
time when an accident victim.
or a heart attack victim needs
help immediately.
As the wife (and now
widow) of a career army man, I
have lived in Europe, Japan and
several cities in the United
States where we were stationed
and I have never heard of a 911
call' not. being answered
immediately. I believe that you
definitely have a problem with


your 911 number or operator
that should be addressed so that
in the future the calls for
emergency help will be
answered immediately.
You or a member of your
family could very well need the
911 service at any given time
and its too late then to address
the problem.,
I must add that once the
paramedics arrived, they were
competent and quickly
transported me to the ER at
Shands Starke where I received
excellent and professional care
from the staff on duty and Dr.
Lee Gibson.

Community work squads are valuable commodities


BY CLIFF SMELLEY:
Telegraph Staff Writer
How would you like to save
more than $40 million a year?
That's exactly what the state of
Florida is saving, thanks to its
cooperation with the
Department of Corrections and
the use of community work
squads.. -.. --
Department of Corrections
statistics, supplied to the
Bradford County Telegraph by
Richard Dugger, Region II
director, show that community
work squads, consisting of
Department of Transportation-
work squads, public works and
interagency community service
work squads and contracted
work squads, performed
6,5:65,700 hours of work
during fiscal year 2004-05.
That work was valued'it mIre
than $74.7 million. After costs,
it provided Florida citizens
with a net cost -savilgs .of
$42.4 million.,.
"There is a lot of community


service going on out there to have the resources the county community work squads;
address needs that counties and and the city may not have. If public works and interagency

TALKS program needs mentors, especially me


BY LINDSEY KIRKLAND
Telegraph Staff Writer
A character development
.program soon to be started at
"two of the district's schools is
expected to improve student
behavior, decision-making and
school performance.
TALKS (Transferring A
"Little Knowledge
*.,Systematically) mentoring
program is an opportunity for
'Bradford County residents to
start the process of change by
volunteering to be a mentor
with those schools.
Set to begin at Bradford
Middle School aiid Starke
Elementary School (grades 3-
8) on Sept. 5, TALKS helps
adults pass on their knowledge
of important subjects to
students.
The program's curriculum is
'based on talks a person's,
father or mother never had
with them.
Bradford County Faith
Community Center Director
Elaine Slocum, who has been,
working with the school
district for nm-ore --than eight
months to start the program,
said more mentors are needed,
especially men.
If a would-be volunteer is
worried about whether they are
able to be an effective mentor,
Slocum said the program is
laid out for them. No mentor
has to come up with their own
material.
Potential mentors %were
given program information in
an orientation session two
weeks ago. Slocum said if a
person was not able to attend
the meeting, theN can still be a
mentor.
A training session %will take
place this Saturday, Aug. 26, at
the Bradford County School
Board District Office from 9-
1 1 a.m.
TALKS creator Dr. Harold
D. Davis will be doing the


in Champaign, Ill. and has now
taken it to many states with
hundreds of mentors.
Following the training
session, there will be a


luncheon for men only entitled
"Becoming a Man of Force." It
will be held from 1-2-2 pjm..aL_
the Church of God by Faith,
730 Old Lawtey Road.


Slocum said there is an open
invitation to all men to attend

A workshop for producers,
agricultural suppliers and local
entrepreneurs is being offered
at the Bradford County
Extension office on Thursday,
Aug. 31, from 5:30-9 p.m.
The "Growing Growers"
workshop will cover a broad
range of topics, including
vegetable and herb production
(greenhouse and field),' cut
flower production and a fruit
and nut overview. There will
also be a session on tips and
tools for going to the market,
along with a guest presentation
by a local market manager. *
Farmers markets, especially
in urban areas, have become
very popular in the United
States. There are several
farmers markets in north
Florida that need produce to
sell. The cities of Keystone
Heights, Lake Butler, Lake
City and Gainesville all have
farmers markets that are
seeking vendors.
Currently, there is a lot ofL
discussion within the city of
Starke about starting a
downtown farmers market. An

Andrew Carter's musical talent is a gift from God


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
Andrew Carter had a
dream-he wanted to play
music.
He never learned to read
music, and was never formally
taught to play. That did not,
however, prevent him from
making his dream a reality, as
he is currently:the minister of
music at New Hope
Missionary Baptist Church in
Starke.
"I've never had a lesson in
my life," Carter said. "All I've
got, the Lord gave to me from
above."
Carter, a Bradford. County
native who is the son of
Andrew and Juanita Carter,
has been working in the music
ministry at the church for more
than 30 years. He works with
three different choirs at the
church: a mixed group, that
comprises 18 members, a male
group of 10 and a children's
group of 14.
Besides keeping busy with
those groups, he also works
with the Bradford County
Gospel Ensemble,- which is
composed of members of
various area churches.
Carter, a 1977 Bradford-
High School graduate, gives:
credit, to his grandmother,
Gertrude Carter, for his love of
music.
"She had a little turntable,"
he said. "We'd play gospel
songs. She and I would be
singing along until she told me
to go to bed."
It was an auntf who inspired
Carter to want to play the
piano and keyboard. He was a
member of a "tiny tot" choir at.
Greater Bethlehem Freewill
Baptist Church, and his aunt
played -with them. He
approached her about wanting
to learn to play the piano, but
she replied she wasn't going to
teach him anything-he would

The time commitment may
seem like a lot, but mentors
should think about what the
child is receiving and not what
they are giving up.
'According to the TALKS
Web site, Davis said. .the
program results have showed
him it only takes a small
amount of time to greatly
influence the life of a child.
"We wanted to be able to
put something in people's
hands that wouldn't take a lot
of time," Slocum said.
At the elementary level, a
mentor could eat lunch with
the child while providing them
with the structured curriculum.
Slocum said the program

wanted to play.
That's just what Carter .set
out to do. He would look over
his aunt's shoulders as she
played during Friday night
practices, trying to memorize
how her hands moved on the
keys. Carter would then go to
the church on Saturdays and
try to replicate those
movements on the piano-in the
fellowship hall..
He said some of the women
who were there at the church
that da) would try to run him
off, but one of the church
deacons told them, "Leave that
boy alone. Let him alone. If he
wants to learn, let him learn."
. The first song Carter learned
to play was "I Love the Lord."
He has, as he put it, "been
going ever since."
. He must have been pretty
good at a young age. He was in
high school, participating in
football practice, when a

"There is no emphasis on a
bad kid," Slocum said.
The school district has been
receptive of the mentoring
program, with BMS setting
aside a short class period
devoted to it.
"It'.s something we hope
over time ... we will see a
long-term effect," Slocum
said.
She thanked CMC Joist, Ray
Norman and Wal-Mart for
being the first supporters of the
program, as well as Davis for
coming to Bradford County to
train mentors himself.
-"If the community gets
involved, it (the program) will
sustain itself," Slocum said. "If
(people) see the value of
mentoring but can't mentor,
they can help fund the
program," she said.
Anyone interested in
becoming a mentor or
supporting the TALKS
program can contact Slocum at
the faith community center at

BMS's approach

BMS Principal Jeff Cable
said at-the-end of the school


.- a "-


couple of members of New
Hope Missionary Baptist
Church approached him about
filling the church's need for a
musician. He responded by
saying he didn't "play that
great," but he agreed to go
play for the church members.
"They liked it," he said.
As e% idenced by the fact he
was at football practice, music
,was not the only love,.' in
Carter's life. He played both,
running back and linebacker at
BHS, but it was the offensive
. side he especially enjoyed.
,"I loved running that ball,",
he said.
Carter said one of his most
memorable games was a 1976
playoff .game in which the
Tornadoes defeated Tarpon
'Springs 22-19 for the Region 3
championship. Bradford trailed
19-7 at the half against what
was then the number two team
in the state.
"That was a game to


day, students will return to a
homeroom class, where the
TALKS curriculum will be
taught. Students will still have
a mentor.
TALKS will be presented
with other character-based
programs, such as "Start
Something," a program created.
through the partnership of
Target and Tiger Woods.
These programs will create
more opportunities for
students, Cable said.
"We're tyring to .take
advantage of things in the
community to make a better
thing called education."
The class is only 12-15
minutes a day, but it will be
every day with small class
sizes (all staff will have a class
size of 12-16 for the
homeroom period).
Students will work in
groups, out of workbooks and
also have regular lessons
'taught to them.
Cable said, "It offers them
something some have never
heard before."
Slocum, agreed, saying, "I
think it's such a valuable thing
for students to get the
knowledge they need."
SIf parents or potential
mentors would like more,
information on the program,
they can contact Dr. Shannon
Knight or Cynthia Ross 'at

His 1-yard touchdown pulled..
Bradford to within 19-14 in the

He would go on to play in

He has plenty to keep him
busy, though. Since he lives in
Bronson, Carter has some
traveling that occupies his time
when he goes to New Hope
Missionary Baptist Church for
choir practices. He attends the
church every Sunday.
Also, Carter's wife, Patricia,
attends a church in Chiefland.
He spends some time assisting
with the music there as well,
practicing ith the choir on
Tuesday and sometimes
attending that church on
Sunday evenings. ;

said.
One place he will have to
travel to on Friday, Aug. 25, is
Starke's Ebenezer Baptist
Church. An appreciation will
be held for Carter that night at

invited.
"I'm looking forward to
having a good time praising
the Lord (that night)," he said.


True ecstasy hails neither
from spirit nor from nature,
but from the union of these
two.

Career and technical center aims to lower dropout rate


BY LINDSEY KIRKLAND
Telegraph Staff Writer
Let's face it-kids get bored
with middle and high school,
and some just can't hold out
for graduation, much less
college.
Then there are the kids who
have less than ideal home
lives. There are also kids who
cannot afford college.
The Bradford-Union Area
Career and. Technical Center
has a program to reach
students like this and help
them learn skills necessary to
get high-paying jobs, without
ever having to attend college.
The performance-based
program allows high school
students to complete their
work at the career center and'
graduate with a regular
diploma.
So how does this earn them
a high-paying job?
While they are completing
regular schoolwork,
performance-based students
are in vocational training
classes.
According to the career
center, classes like masonry,
cosmetology, welding and
accounting operations, would
normally cost $2,887, $2,100,
$2,047 and $1,350,
respectively, plus textbook and
lab fees.
These programs would be
free-that'sright, free-to
anyone in the performance-
based program.
Instructor' Peggy Stahwix-
Hay said, "It is something all
parents of high school students
and students should, know
about."
The program is for students
who are skipping school,
losing interest and/or would
rather go to work.
"They gei discouraged. They
sa\ the\ 're going to drop out.,"

Travis Townsend, a student in the
performance-based program, works out a math

completed on the computer, but students also
are allowed a traditional classroom experience.


Stanwix-Hay said.
The 200-1-2:005 school year
dropout rate for Bradford
County was 4.5 percent (58\
students in grades nine- 12).

behind other students her age.
"I wanted to come back and,
be able to graduate," she said.
"I just want to graduate.".
The program, started
approximately 13 years ago b.
Jim Ward, gives students like
Bowen the opportunity to
succeed by allowing them to
see the light at the bnd of the
tunnel.
Stanwix-Hay said'even if;
students have everything in
place with their home life, they
still can get bored or fall
behind.
If students have done poorly
in their class or have missed so
much school they were held
back, performance based puts
them in the grade they are
supposed to be by age.
(Students are not allowed to
skip ahead to higher grades.)
Students take. math and
English.. If they have not
passed the FCAT, they take
remedial classes.
All students get two chances
to pass the GED, regardless of
their FCAT scores.
"The GED is not that easy,"
Stanwix-Ha. said.
She said it is estimated that
30-40 percent of high school
students could not pass it.
To prepare for these tests,
students receive regular
classroom lessons with a

NOVAnet, a state

is used in the class, as well, to
help students move ahead to
the grade they are supposed to
be in.
The program at the career
center is like the regular high
school experience in some
ways. Students come every
day and have to follow the
same rules:.
Despite popular belief, these
students can still play sports,
go to prom, graduate with a
regular diploma and walk in
the graduation ceremony.
"We're more flexible here,"
Stanwix-Hay said.
This willingness to meet the

market since market organizers
usually schedule market days
so that they do not conflict
with other area schedules.
Farmers markets, however,
are only one targeted market.
Other potential markets
include local restaurants,
community supported
agriculture farms, and the local
school system. When farms are
supported by a collection of
homeowners who ban together
and prepay for crops
throughout the season, you
have a community-supported
agriculture farm. The grower
gets his money first, then
invests into producing the
crop.
As the grower harvests the
crop, a variety of his produce
is obtained regularly
throughout the growing season
by its'supporters. The, grower
has the advantage of knowing
his crop is sold before he
grows it and homeowners have
the benefit of fresh food.
In the Farm to Schools
program, schools use local
produce when possible. This
reduces the distance food
needs to be transported before
being sold, gets the freshest
food available to our children
and stimulates the local
economy.
Small farms make up about
15 percent of all farm product
sales in Florida. The
University of Florida has
developed educational
programs that are geared to
helping small farmers succeed.
Topics to be covered include
information on alternative
crops and enterprises, technical
information regarding
production methods, gaining
access to profitable markets
and bl business skills
development.


The public is invited to
attend the workshop regardless
of race, color, sex, national
origin or handicap. Dinner will
be served on arrival. ..
A $5. registration .fee will


cover the costs of materials
and your dinner. Please call
966-6224 to pre-register before
Friday, Aug. 25, to ensure that
there will be enough food.

.Tornadoes have problem in classic, win 47-0


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
Matanzas, a second-year
school which is playing its first
season on the varsity football
level, was no match for
Bradford, which won an easy
47-0 preseason'kickoff classic
-played Aug. 18 at Flagler
Palmer Coast High School in
Bunnell.
The only thing in doubt
during the game was whether
or not. Bradford's offense
would take the field as-the~-
Tornadoes scored three
touchdowns without benefit of
an offensive snap. Chuckie
Covington and Rob Harris
each returned a punt for a
touchdown and Jawan Jamison
returned an interception for
4 another score.
Bradford's offense did
finally get into the act, scoring
i 26- points and averaging
. approximately 6 yards per
play.
"Obviously it's a good start
and something to build on,"
I Bradford head coach Chad
Bankston said.
One thing- that had to
concern Bankston was the fact
his offense was prone to'
making mistakes. The
Tornadoes committed six
penalties when on offense,
including two that negated
touchdown runs by Harris.
"You've got to expect that
early (in the season), but we'll
get that cleaned up," Bankston

said.
There couldn't have been
many concerns with the
defensive unit's performance,
though; Bradford forced four.
turnovers and allowed
Matanzas to gain just 24 yards.
One of the' defensive.
standouts was Covington, who
set the 'tone for, the game early
when he tackled a. ball carrier
for a loss of 5 yards on the first


play from scrimmage.
Covington then put the first
.points on the board when he
fielded the Pirates' first punt at
his own 46 and took it all the
way into the end zone for a
touchdown at the 9:45 mark.
Glen Velasquez converted on
the PAT to put the Tornadoes
up 7-0.
Again, it was Covington
making his mark when the


Pirates' offense went back
onto the field. Covington
sacked the quarterback for a 6-
yard loss on first down, then
dropped a ball carrier for a 5-
yard loss on second down.
"He's.just all over the field,"
Bankston said of the junior
defensive end. "His motor runs
100 miles per hour."
On third-and-21,. Jamison,
who is just a freshman, stepped

handed it a loss last year when
the Tornadoes travel to play
the Class 4A Fernandina
Beach Pirates on Friday, Aug.
25, at 7:30 p.m.
The Pirates, like the
Tornadoes, finished last season
with a 3-7 record. They scored
an average of 15 points a game
last year, while allowing an
average of 25 per game.
Fernandina returns four


starters on offense: running
backs Ernest Green (senior)
and James. Southers (junior),
-'fullback.Travis Jacobs (senior)
and wide recei-ver Aaron-
Fisher (senior). ,
The .defense returns five
starters, including Fisher and
.Green at the corner positions,
Jacobs' at nose guard and
senior Neal Clements at
linebacker.
Green had one of the plays.
of the game for the Pirates in,
their 13-12 win over Bradford
last year when he scooped up
the ball following a blocked
field goal and returned it for a
touchdown as the first half


expired.
Fernandina's offense never
found the end zone in
regulation, but a 2-yard
touchdown ru n---.and
subsequent-extra -point-in a
tie breaker gave the Pirates the
win. .
Bradford's defense allowed
just 88 yards and five first
downs, but -the offense's
failure to take advantage of
opportunities .hurt the
Tornadoes. The team had first-
and-goal opportunities from
the 2- and 10-yard lines,'but
failed to score.
Also, the Tornadoes had
problems with kicks getting


blocked. Besides the field goal,
both extra-point attempts were
blocked.

in front of a Matanzas receiver
for an interception, which he
returned for the Tornadoes'
second touchdown and a 14-0
lead.
Harris got into the act next
for Bradford when the Pirates
were forced to punt after a
series in which they lost 14
yards. He fielded the punt at
the Bradford 48 and didn't
stop until he crossed the goal
line.
Bradford was up 21-0 six
minutes into the game and its
offense had still not' seen any
action. That changed when
Joey Faulkner. recovered a
fumble, finally giving the
Tornadoes a chance to run
some plays at the Maianzas 29..
.It looked as if the offense
was going to have it just as
easy as. the defense when
Harris sprinted around right
end on the team's first
offensive play for a
touchdown. The score was
called back, however, because
of a holding penalty. The same
thing would happen later in the
drive when Harris had another
touchdown run negated.
Bradford eventually turned
the ball over on downs, but the
offense got it going on its next
series, driving 47 yards for the
fourth touchdown of the
evening. Most of those 47


yards came on Jamison's 39-
yard touchdown run that put
his team up 27-0 with 9:44 to
play in the first half.
Jernard Beard scored two
touchdowns for Bradford to
send the Tornadoes into
halftime up 40-0. The first
came on a 48-yard reception
from quarterback Antwan
Brown, the second on a 27-
yard run.
Beard was one of six
running backs to carry the ball
for Bradford. He gained 38
yards on four carries.
Jamison led the group with
45' yards on four carries, while
Gerald Goodman had 40 yards
on seven carries and Dejor Hill
had 36 yards on nine carries.
Overall, the' Tornadoes
rushed for. 222 yards on 33
carries.
The team's last score came
on an 8-yard touchdown run
by freshman Robert Boswell
with 40 seconds left in the
game. The score was set up by
a 16-yard run by Goodman.
Another freshman, Rodney
Mosley, participated 'in the
driVe, taking over for Brown at
quarterback as every player
was able to get into the game
and see action.
"The young kids came out
and "showed some good
things," Bankston said.


Always do right. This will surprise some people and
astonish the rest.

Wildfire

threat

remains
Florida Agriculture and
Consumer Services.
Commissioner Charles H.
Bronson said recently that-
despite intermittent rain this-
summer, showers have. not
come with 'sufficient frequency.
to ease the wildfire threat. As a
result, Floridians need to
remain cautious with all
outdoor fires.
"The summer rainy season
.has been, unusual and has not
developed like we had hoped."
Bronson said. "Normally, we
would be out of wildfire danger
by now."
The Keetch-Byram Drought
Index, of KBDI, is a way that
scientists measure the amount
of moisture in the upper 36
inches of the soil. Readings are
given on a scale of 0 (saturated
soil) to 800 (desert-like
conditions). High values of the
KBDI mean that conditions are
favorable for the occurrence and
spread of wildfires.
Typically in August, the
KBDI registers in the 100 to
200 range. The current
statewide average KBDI reading
of 442, which is more typical
of late spring when wildfire
danger is high, is testimony to
lack of adequate summer
rainfall.
Bronson is concerned that
under these conditions, the
residual debris in forests from


recent hurricanes and tropical
storms will fuel bigger ahd
more desrrucii\e ,.i dlires..
"Until we get more rainfall
and more widespread rainfall,
the large amount of uprooted or
dead and dying trees and shrubs
will make conditions very
dangerous for our wildJand
firefighters," Bronson said.
Florida averages about 5.000
wildfires each year Since Jan.
1, 4.195 wildfires have burned,
214,646 acres and destroyed 43'
homes and 164., other
structures. Meanwhile,
thousands of homes and other
structures have been saved as a
result of the efforts of
firefighters.

Lloyd and Miranda Kent had
five and three, respectively.
Bennett also .had three
blocks, while Lloyd and
Bianca Clemons each had four
kills.
The Tigers opened the
season with a 3-0 (19-25, 15-
25, 9-25) road loss to Bronson


on Aug. 14.
"We were playing a very
tough district runner-up team
from last year," Union head
coach Perry Davis said.
"However, it was our mistakes
on defense that cost us."
Davis said the Tigers got
good net play from Clemons
and,-Hayes, while Bennett and
Jessica Parrish did a good job
of serving.

Aug. 24, at' 6 p.m. The junior
varsity teams will play at 5

Tigers open season


against Madison County


BY CLIFF SM4LLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
How good are this year's
Union County Tigers? They
..may find out the answer to that
question this Friday, Aug. 25,
at 7:30 p.m. when they travel-
to Madison to take. on the.
Class, 2A Madison County
Cowboys.
Of course,. how good
Madison County' is this year
remains to be seen as well, but
the Cowboys seem to do a
good job of reloading every
year. The team's defense was
decimated by graduation
following the 2004 season, but
the Cowboys still rolled
through an undefeated regular
season-its fourth in a
row-in 2005. advancing to
the Class 2A semifinals before
losing 29-14'to eventual state
runner-up South Sumter,


Madison traveled to Ocala to
face reigning 2B.
champion-and fellow Union
district opponent-Ocala
Trinity' Catholic in a half of
play in a preseason kickoff
classic. The Cowboys lost 13-
6. I :
Trinity took a 13-0 lead with
2:20 left to play, but Madison
finally got on the board when
Chris Thompson scored on a
7-yard run with 27 seconds
remaining.
Thompson finished the half
with 41 yards on five carries,
while Jordan JOhnson had 69,
yards on seven carries.
Defensively, the Cowboys
allowed just 21 rushing yards
on 13 attempts, but 'Trinity
quarterback 'John Brantley was-
8-of-14 for 145 yards.
Madison allowed
touchdowns on a 1-yard run
and a 16-yard pass.


The Cowboy's may, be
playing down in classification
for the second straight week, ,
but they face many larger.
schools on their schedule. Last-
year, in compiling an 8-0.
regular season record, 'the,
Cowboys defeated -3A
Suwannee, 4A Columbia, 5A
Mainland and 6A Apopka, as
well as defeating Georgia
po werhouse Valdosta.
Madison's defense did suffer
a bit of a dropoff last season.
allowing an average of 21
points per game (compared to!
8.6 points per game in 20041.
Offensively, however, the
Cou"boys scored an average of
37.8 points per game. ;,
Last year marked the I I1
time Madison has qualified for
postseason play. The Cowboys
are 26-10 in. playoff games.
See MADISON, p. 11C


BY JAMES REDMOND
Tinei Sirff lu ,'ih,
A ne\. chapter opened in the
Budd Nobles era of football
at Union Cournti High School
FridaN night aith a big
surprise
Nobles, kno\kn for his use of
the wing-T offensive scheme.
opened up the passing game on
the Tigers' \'.jy to a 12-7
\ictor\ o'er the Santa Fe
Raiders in a half of pla. in a
preseason kickoff classic
The Tigers had twice as
man\ passing pla' s as running
ones. Nobles said the new
scheme is something the
coaching staff brought back
from a clinic the group
attended during the off season.
"We liked %%hat we saw and
decided it was the type, of
offensive strategy we needed,"
Nobles said, "I hope that not
only our players enjoy it more,
but the community as well." -
. Several Tiger players said
they were enjoy ing the new
wrinkles the scheme was
offering. Quarterback Austen
Roberts said even practice %% as
more fun. .
"I'm really enjo',ing my role
this year," Roberts said. "It
gives me ,more of an:
opportunity to make a play and
be inol\ed .
Running back Josh Mitchell,
the team's motivator, said he
was also happy % ith the new
scheme.
"I like the change." Mitchell
said. "It's a great change-up
from the offense I've been in
for. the last three years. It has
the team fired up and we're
ready to play."
From what the offense
showed a packed Jtngle, the
new scheme uses a variety of
play action -in which Roberts
rolls out and stretch's the
defense. Pass plays ranged
fr6m:10 to 40 yards.
Mixed in are handoffs, to
Mitchell and running back
Justin Griffin. The scheme
.showed great potential as the
Tigers moved the ball on every
drive of the evening.
A new era began on the
defensive side of the ball as
well. Eugene "Bubba" Wilson
.torted his stint as the Tigers'
41,4'feni\ %' 'c irdiitor'. Though
h6 ran the defense during the
spring, Nobles said he felt this
was Wilson's first, true chance
to show his style of coaching.
"He's had several months to
work with our kids and get
them used to his style," Nobles
said.
Wilson's defensive scheme
is off to a good start. The
Tigers held the Raiders'
running game in check most of
the evening. Santa Fe's one
score came on a 15-yard run
with 2:31 left in the first
quarter.
The score countered a 19-
yard touchdown pass from
Roberts .to Jordan Clyatt seven


minutes earlier. The Raiders'
successful e\tra point attempt
gate them a 7-6 lead.
The Tigers, ho.we'er, were
not content even if the game
was just a warmup. \\ith no
time outs remaining and 2:31
left in the game. Union showed
just what it could do \ ith its
new offense.
From the Santa Fe 46, the
Tigers proceeded to mo'e the
ball down the field with a mi\
of passing and running. Two of
the pass plays resulted in the
Raiders being called for pass
interference. The penalties
gate the ball to the Tigers on
the Raiders' 8-.ard line.
It took Roberts just one pla\
to find De\ven Perry in the end
zone for the go-ahead score.
Nobles, after his team missed
the extra point after its first
score, opted to go for the two-
point conversion. Mitchell

SIndians reign in rainy kickoff classic


BY ARNIE HARRIS.
LRM Staff Writer
The kickoff classic on
Aug.18, which saw ,the,
Keystone Heights varsity team
top the Ridgeview Panthers
22-7 in the first half of the
game, may have started off as
an initiation by fire for both
teams, but by the second
quarter it became one by
water. Much of the second
quarter was played in a
torrential downpour.
But even before Mother
Nature became a factor in the
contest, both teams, eager to
get off on the right foot, were
busy shooting themselves in
those feet instead.
In the first several minutes,
while the Panthers 'advanced
to the rear' by way of multiple


penalties, the Indians were
suffering from an acute case of
fumbleitis, losing control of
the pigskin three times.
Fortunately for them, they
recovered it twice.
Despite the miscues, the
Indians, on their second drive,
drew blood first when' running
back Greg Taylor, who had
already provided most of the
offense up until then, broke
loose for a 57-yard touchdown
romp at the 8:04 mark of the
first quarter. The two-point
conversion attempt came up
short and Keystone settled for
a 6-0 lead. ,
In the closing minutes of the
first quarter, the Panthers
began a sustained 74-yard
drive, highlighted by a 33-yard
reception by Riley Hill. With


44 seconds remaining in the
opening period, receiver Leo,
Alexander pulled in a 15-yard
touchdown pass, and
Ridgeview edged ahead 7-6.
As the second quarter
opened up, so did the ominous
storm clouds which loomed
overhead. However, the deluge
had little dampening effect on
Taylor, who returned the,
Panthers' kickoff 35 yards
down to their 35. Moved along
by the hard-nosed running of
Matt Story, the Indians once
again struck pay dirt on a 14-
yard touchdown connection
from Blake Lott to receiver
.Cameron Yarbrough with
11:118 remaining in the second
quarter. The Indians went up
14-7 with the successful two-
point conv version.


The Panthers' ensuing drive
wais stopped dead in its tracks
when the Indians' Riki Olivier
picked off a pass at
Ridgeview's 39. Several plays
later, the Indians' Lott ran the
ball in on a quarterback keeper.
with 5:03 left in the varsity-:
game. The Indians again made._
good on the two-point attempt
as Josh Mangus hauled in the
pass to increase the lead to 22--
7.
From then on, the minutes'
trickled down and the
downpour subsided to a light
shower, as the Keystone.
defense shut: down the
Panthers' offense drives.
The Keystone and--
Ridgeview junior varsity teamrns
were supposed to pla7 for .a
half,as well. but the acnon was
cancelled due to .the weather.

TelegraphpStaff Writer .
Ke, stone Heights opens the
football season against a team

it-and just about everyone
,else-handled easily last year.
The Indians will open the
regular season b. hosting the
Branford Bucs on Friday, Aug.
25, at 7:30 p.m.,. Last year,
Keystone defeated the Bucs
36-6.
Branford, a Class A school,
won just one game last year.,
Its offense averaged 12 points
per game, while, the defense


allowed an average of 31
points per game.
Branford could potentially
be a better team this year with
13 starters returning for new
coach Bill.Wiles.
On offense, running.backs
Brett Suggs (junior) and Matt
Taylor (senior) return, along
with quarterback David
Campbell (sophomore). tight
end Brian Bullock (senior' and
linemen Justin Davis (senior)
and Aubrey Ransom
(sophomore).
Three of those offensive


starters are also starters on the
defensive side of the ball:
defensive back Campbell,
lineman Davis and linebacker
Ransom. Also returning in
starting roles are linebacker
Joseph Garrett (senior),
defensive back Tim Clark
(sophomore) and linemen
Andrew Johnson (senior) and
J.D. Strickland (junior):
Keystone had three
touchdowns of 56 yards or
more in the win over Branford
last year. Running back Greg
Taylor, a junior this year, had
one of those on a 62-yard run.


Taylor also had a 7-'ard
touchdown run for the Indians,-
who rushed for 214 yards and-
passed for another 104. :
Senior quarterback Blake:-
Lot completed 8-of- 13 passes..

Senior kicker Michael-
McLeod added a 32-yard field
goal to the scoring.

Defensively, -the Indians_
allowed Branford to gain just
two first downs and 102 yards;-
while also recovering tevoa
fumbles.

SThe Bradford volleyball
team has a new coach, and the
Tornadoes are still in the midst
of learning a new offensive
system, but they have started
out the season 2-0 with wins
over Hamilton County and
Palatka.
i Bradford opened the season
by defeating visiting Hamilton
3-1 (15-25, 25-18, 25-15, 25-
21) on Aug. 15. Destiny Bass
and Jasma Steele led the team
in passing, while Bass also led
the team with nine service
aces. Khalaa Hill led the team
with five kills.
On Aug. 17, the Tornadoes
traveled to Palatka, defeating
the Panthers 3-1 (25-22, 22-25,
25-17, 25-15). Bass and
Shaniara .Hampton were the
team's leading passers. Hill
and Valencia Cave tied for the
team high in kills, while Cave
also had nine aces.
'New coach Josh Crow said

counterpart. Two big plays by
the Raiders put the Tigers on
the wrong side of a 14-0 score.

The Santa Fe quarterback
went 80 yards and 28 yards to
score the only points of the.
second half of the classic.


MADISON
Continued from p. 10C

They won a state
championship in 2001 and
were state runners-up in 1998
and 2003.

The Tigers and the Cowboys
opened the season last year
against each other but the
game was called bec; se of
lightning at the 7:20 i ark in
the second quarter. Madison
held a 17-14 lead at j,,e time.
Graduate C.J. Spiller got the


field both varsity and junior
varsity teams. That goal was
met as cuts had to be made on
both teams, he said.
As far as how the season
will play out, Crow said, "It's
going to be a matter of
acclimating them to this
offense and a high level of
volleyball."
Crow has been coaching
high school and club teams for
eight years He played on a
men's club team at the
University of Florida and
played semi-pro beach
volleyball while in' high
school.
The Tornadoes host district
opponent Baker County
tonight, Aug. 24, then travel to
play district opponent
Middleburg on Tuesday, Aug.
29. Both matches are
scheduled for 6:30 p.m.
following junior varsity
matches at 5 p.m.
Bradford's junior varsity
team also started the season
with two wins, defeating
Hamilton County 2-1 (18-25,
25-11, 15-7) and Palatka 2-0
(26-24, 25-15).


With the exception of the
two big plays, the Union
defense held the Santa Fe
offense in check. The Raiders
found it difficult to pass
against the Tigers secondary.
The Union offense moved
the ball well against the
Raiders, but penalties and
turnovers stalled drives. Lack
of good field position on the
Tigers' part also hurt their
drives.


Tigers off to a quick start by
breaking free for a 65-yard
touchdown run on the first
play from scrimmage. Spiller
also scored on a 40-yard
reception from quarterback
Austen Roberts, who is a
senior this year.
Spiller had more 130 all-
purpose yards by the time the
game was called, but the
Madisuc. offense also had a
good '-owing with 182 yards
on the ground.
The Cowboys' scores came
on touchdown runs of I and 2
yards and a field goal of 37
yards.
