Three

Three deadly accidents over the last
week resulted in multiple casualties,
including the death of 10-year-old
Mallory Lee Homer-of Starke.
The 1994 Honda driven by her
father, 38-year-old Ronald M. Homer
Jr., was traveling west on S.R. 100
on Dec. 27 when it veered across the
center line and struck an eastbound
vehicle around 7:50 a.m.
The collision took place 0.4 mile
west of Meng Dairy Road.
Mallory's injuries were fatal, while
her father was taken to Shands in
Gainesville with critical injuries.
Her mother, 31-year-old Helina M.
Homer, sustained serious injuries and
was transported to Shands Starke.
Also still listed in serious condition
as of Tuesday was the driver of the
second vehicle, Frances M. Tyer, 65,
of Starke.
Despite being the only passenger
in the Homers' car wearing a seatbelt.
Mallory, who was riding in the back
seat, was pronounced dead at the
scene.

Florida Power rebuffs Starke franchise fee talk


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

An attorney for Florida Power and-
Light is calling the city of Starke's
attempt to collect a franchise fee on
FPL electric customers in the city
an "unconstitutional tax," suggesting
:niejd thali bulh p.rlies sit down
to negotiate a .territorial agreement
governing service boundaries.
In a letter to the city's attorney,
FPL's Jay Molyneaux suggested
the move toward franchise fees was
merely a way for the city to level a
playing field on which the city has
had a difficult time competing.
"The proposed franchise fee
is obviously an effort to make
Starke's rates more competitive by
unilaterally manipulating FPL's rates
to make them artificially higher to
the detriment of our customers,"
Molyneaux wrote.
Franchise fees are fees charged
for the use of public right of way,
in this case the use of that right of
way to distribute electricity. They are


charged to power companies (cable
companies,. telecommunications
companies, etc.), but those companies
typically pass the cost along to their
customers.
While most businesses and
residents in the city limits are served
by the city of Starke's electric utility,
there is a handful of FPL and Clay
---Electric customers living in Starke.
Since the city uses several hundi-ed
thousand dollars in electric revenue
for general fund expenditures, city
commissioners have argued in the
past that those not on its system are
benefiting from services they don't
help to pay for.
Molyneaux called such an
"equalization tax" "unfair" and a
violation of state antitrust laws. He
said the Fiorida Supreme Court also
ruled it unconstitutional in a suit
between Alachua County and the
state.-
"The city is not seeking to negotiate
an agreement, it is unilaterally
imposing a fee," according to
Molyneaux.This is unlike FPL's many


negotiated franchise agreements with
local governments around the state,
giving FPL no other choice but to pay
a 10 percent franchise fee if it wishes
to continue serving its customers in...
the city limits.
-..Molyneaux said the city had no
"legitimate economic or .cost basis''
for imposing the fee.
"It bears no reasonable relationship
to the cOst af mn.iinaining the rights
of, way, which FPL is ehnitted- to .
use at no cost in any event, or to
any reasonable rental rate for the
land involved. The city provides no
benefit to FPI. which it does not
already enjoy and to which it is not
already entitled as a matter of law
and regulation," Molyneaux wrote.
"FPL cannot expose its customers
to arbitrary, 'baseless rate increases
for illegitimate purposes," he wrote,
adding FPI, would oppose the Starke
"tax"just as it did in Alachua County,
resulting in costly litigation for the
city.

Former

minister

arrested

for sexual

battery,
BY MARCIA MILLER
T.legrapi St'a t Wiriter
A former
Bradford County
minister who
was already on ,
probation for using .
the Internet to
solicit minors for
sex, was arrested
Dec. 18 on a
Bradford warrant
for sexual battery
on a child.
Aaron D.
West. 50, now of West
Beverly Hills, Fla.,
was arrested in Citrus County on
the Bradford warrant that resulted
,from an ongoing investigation into
incidents that occurred in Bradford
County during 2004.
Bradford County Sheriff's Office
Investigator Ron Davis reported that
BCSO's Cpl. Robert Smith has kept
in touch with West's probation officer,
and through that contact developed
additional information that'ultimately
led to the arrest Dec. 18.
Davis said West is accused of
having attempted to have sex with
a 15-year-old minor female. He
said investigators also have reason
to believe there may be a second
child victim involved in the 2004
incidents.
Davis said the second victim is
thought to'have been in or around the
West's home in 2004. Investigators
need to hear from anyone who may
haveinformation regardingthissecond
victim or any incident involving West
that may have occurred during that
timeframe.
If you have information, contact
Smith or Davis at BCSO:
(904) 966-6380
The Bradford warrant for West
carried-a.$250,00O bond, but a Citrus
County judge reduced that amount to
$20,000 and West was released on
bail Dec. 19. West will still have to
face this new charge in court.
At the time of his arrest, West was
already serving a five-year probation
for using the Internet to solicit minors
for sex.
West was arrested by BCSO in
August of 2005 on charges that he
sent nude photos of a male to two
Wisconsin minor females. He told the
two girls, who were 14 and 15 at the
time, that the photos were of himself,

Signs designed by Showcase Advertising with
direction from Main Street Starke Inc. have replaced
the vandalized and inconsistent signage downtown.



Chief: New parking

signs will be enforced


As we begin a new year and
hopefully a prosperous one for
our. community, I wanted to
take a moment to inform you
that a new wave of enforcement
will be taking place in the
downtown area of Starke.
As you may have noticed
the city beautification program
has been doing a wonderful job
improving the scenic downtown
area. The most recent change in
the downtown area are the new
two-hour parking signs.
In the past, the Starke Police
Department has not been
diligent in enforcing these
limits due to the inconsistency
in the signs. I did not feel
that I could as chief of police,
in good conscience, enforce
the parking limitations when
the stated limitations varied
throughout that area.
When the business
owners and the Starke City
Commission requested that the
police department take a harder
stance of these limits, I firmly
-. stated my objections due to the
inconsistencies of the parking
limit signs.

He contacted the girls
through a computer chat room

West pled no contest to those
charges and was sentenced to
five years of sexual offender
probation, beginning in 2005.

The city of Starke has
recently posted new two hour
parking signs that are clearly
visible throughout downtown
Starke. I have instructed the
officers to start enforcing the
two-hour limit.
Starting Jan. 1.. the Starke
Police Department will
be issuing citations for all
violations. In the past, most
violations were due to business
owners and tenants who parked
for extended hours and not the
citizens and customers that
frequent -the local businesses
downtown.
A parking violation is a
non-moving violation and will
currently cost you $76.50. If
your vehicle has to be towed
from the location it will be an
additional $98 due to the fees
issued by the towing company.
This is a necessary step to ensure
that there is viable parking for
all customers and citizens to
access the downtown area.

One of the first items on the
agenda for the Bradford ('ounlt
commission n in the new \ear is
the question of whether or not
to raise the bed tax on hotel and
motel room stays.An increase
from 2 to the 4 percent has
been proposed by the county's
Tourism Development councill .
and would double the council's
monthly revenue from the tax.
which averages around $4.000.
That money, along with rental
fees for the facility, pays for the
mortgage and operation of the
county convention center.
The council has said raising
the tax would speed repayment
of the county's debt on the
purchase .of the property and
allow it to return to promoting
local events to attract tourists
and their dollars to the area.
The additional revenue would
also allow TDC to market the
center outside of this area to
attract events and increase sales

Correction
county y Manager Jim
(raxwford has pointed out an
error in an article on gas taxes
that ran in the Dec. 21 edition.
The article credited county
government with imposing, a
6-cent gas tax known as the
SCETS tax (automatically
raised to 6.2 cents on Jan. I) on
top of a 6-cent local option gas
tax. This is only partially true.
',he state, in fact, imposes the
SCETS tax in any county that
imposes a local option sales
tax. so if the county collects
the local option, SCETS is
collected by default.
We apologize for any
misunderstanding caused by
this error.

New STAR plan awarding educators

with bonuses draws concerns


BY TERESA STONE-IRWIN
Telegraph Staff Writer

Earlier this year, the Florida
State Board of 'Education
approved the first Special
Teachers Are Rewarded
performance pay plan, also
known as STAR.
The state has appropriated
a total of $147.5 million to
reward educators and school
personnel throughout Florida
for outstanding performance.
Of that amount, the Florida
State Board of Education has
allocated $185,601 for Bradford
County educators.
The STAR plan provides
for a minimum of 25 percent
of the instructional personnel
employed with the Bradford
County School district to be
rewarded with a five percent
bonus, calculated on their
individual annual salary.
A school district is not
required to participate in the
program, but in order for the
district to receive the funds,

they must submit their own
performance pay evaluations to
the State Board of Education
by Dec. 31, 2006.
During a special meeting held
on Dec. 18, the Bradford County
School Board signed their plan
proposal and submitted it to the
board of education.
SuperintendentHarry Hatcher
said that he's not sure teachers
as a whole would say that this
is a good thing as the main
concern seems to be the silos
the state requires educators to
fall in.
Only 25 percent of teachers
in each silo-or category-can
be awarded with the bonuses.
"The problem is that in one
silo, you may have a ton of
good teachers, but only the top
25 percent get rewarded for
their efforts," Hatcher said.
"It's a pretty generic plan
right now. The law says that
50 percent of the teacher
evaluations must come from
student learning gains on the


FCAT, but not all students are
administered the FCAT," said
Hatcher.
Other tests are still being
designed through the state
to evaluate those student's
progress. However, the testing
is supposed to take place early
in the year, then again later in
the year to properly evaluate a
student's progress.
"We recognize that this plan
may not be very successful
right now, especially in the non-
FCAT areas," Hatcher said.
What's more is that the
state will not be holding their
hearings regarding any changes
to the allocations (effected by
county participation) until late
March or earlier April, making
it nearly the end.of the school
year before Bradford County
receives information back to
work with.
'These are some issues that
we are dealing with, but we will
work through them the best that
we can," said Hatcher.


SPECIAL NOTICE

BRADFORD COUNTY EFSP BOARD has been
allocated $8,029 by the National Board for
distribution to local agencies for emergency
food and shelter programs.
Eligible agencies must be voluntarily governed
non-profits or government agencies, have an
accounting system, have demonstrated the
capability to deliver food and shelter services
and practice nondiscrimination.
Application deadline is January 17, 2007.
Please call Karen Slevin at (352) 372-0294 to

The Florida Department of
Environmental Protection is
encouraging residents to make
'green' resolutions for the new
year.
"With more than 16 million
residents, Florida's citizens
play an important role in
protecting our environment,"
said DEP Secretary Colleen M.
Castille. "Ecologically-friendly
practices within homes, offices
and neighborhoods contribute
to state. efforts to protect,
restore and conserve Florida's
natural resources.: '" .
To help you get started, here
are ten simple resolutions that
will make 2007 cleaner and
'greener':
Plant native vegetation
Florida has almost 400
indigenous 1 plant species.
Reduce exotic encroachment,
improve wildlife habitats
and reduce landscaping
efforts by planting native
Florida vegetation. For more

floridayards.org.
Reduce stormwater
runoff To protect Florida's
waterways from pollutants,
limit fertilizer use, practice safe
chemical storage and properly

Kid Talk helps children with communication skills


BY TERESA
STONE-IRWIN
Telegraph Staff Writer
Does your child have trouble
paying attention, sitting still or
following directions?
Is your child struggling in
school? Do teachers or friends
have difficulty understanding
what your child is saying? If
so, your child may be
struggling with a speech-
language disorder.
Oftentimes, children with
language disorders are thought
of as slow learners or of
having behaviour problems
because of their undiagnosed
language difficulties.
Aimee Jennings, Bradford
County native and managing
director of Kid Talk, has
relocated her office to 417
West Call Street.
Jennings saw the need for
qualified health professionals
to evaluate and treat children
with voice, speech, language
or swallowing disorders which
affect a .child's ability -to
properly communicate with
others.

ACORN provides health care services for uninsured, under-insured


BY TERESA
STONE-IRWIN
Telegraph Staff Writer
When volunteers with the
ACORN Clinic (Alachua
County Organization for Rural
Needs) are asked what makes
them keep coming back, the
answer is always the same.
Because that is where the most
health care services are
needed.
Ninety-eight percent of
ACORN's patients fall below
the federal poverty guidelines.
Take for example, a mother
with three or four children
struggling to make ends meet,
being in a position where she
must choose between
medications, and food for her
family.
Interim Director Amy Davis
said that without the
volunteers, the ACORN Clinic
would not be where it is today.
"If we had to pay our nurse
practitioners and pediatrician
the salaries they would
normally earn, we would be
unable to provide the services
that we currently do," said
Davis.
The average volunteer has
been with the ACORN clinic
between eight to 10 years.
Leaving private practice to
devote more time to her
children, Dr. Sally Martin has
been the ACORN Clinic's
pediatrician for over eight
years. Being a community
volunteer, Martin receives no
compensation whatsoever for
her services.
Although she is only at the
clinic on Thursdays, Martin
takes every opportunity when a
child is there to cover
everything and schedule
follow-up appointments when
necessary.
"When there is concern for a
child's health condition, I have
one of ACORN's nurse
practitioners on staff come in
the examination room.to meet
the parents and the child. That
way, if the patient needs to
return before my next working
day at the clinic, a qualified
person knows the family and
the child's medical history,"
said Martin.
ACORN also has what they
consider service-based
volunteers, meaning their
salaries, are derived from
another source, such.-as.
foundation grants from the
University of Florida.
Anna Schwait is on the
faculty at the University of
Florida College of Medicine as
a clinical assistant professor.
She is also the ACORN
Clinic's on-site psychiatric
nurse practitioner who works
with a team providing
psychiatric evaluations and
mental health counseling.
"We deal with the whole
spectrum of mental health

BC welcomes Futch as


new extension agent


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
A Univeristy of Georgia
graduate winds up working for
the University of Florida.
It may sound like the
premise of a joke, but it's
actually the exciting reality for
Heather Futch, who is a new
cooperative extension agent in
Bradford County.
Futch is a family and
consumer sciences agent-a
position that will be split
between Bradford and Baker
counties (Futch will work 20
hours per week in each).
It is her first job in the state
of Florida after living and
working previously in Georgia.
She was a family educator
with the University of
Georgia-a position created
through a grant that allowed
Futch to work with families in
such areas as parenting,
nutrition and financial
management.
The grant ended after 10
months, leaving Futch to seek
another job. There were not a
lot of. openings in the
extension service in Georgia.
Conversely, there seemed to
be numerous such positions in
Florida, so that's where Futch
headed. She was not, however,
venturing into strange territory.
"I've got friends in Florida
who live all over the state,"
she said. "I enjoy spending
time in Florida."
Still, the irony of a Georgia
grad working for UF was not
lost on her new coworkers and
family members.
"They all give me flak
around here about working for
the University of Florida,"
Futch said. "I go back home
and they're like, 'No, you
can't work for Florida."'
She admitted she receives
the most flak from her older
brother, who is a "big-time
Georgia football fan."
However, Futch is attempting.
to keep the peace. She recently
bought Georgia emblems for
her luggage, which she
described as being a "bright
Florida blue" color.

many years and longed to have
a. dental facility built for
patients. Upon his untimely
death of heart disease at the
age of 33, his family
established the Rob Fox
Memorial Fund, the catalyst
that built ACORN's current
dental clinic.
For 12 years now, dental
hygienist David Gold has been
providing services at the
ACORN Dental Clinic. The
dental clinic has room to treat
six patients at one time with
the assistance of University of
Florida dental faculty and 10
rotating residents.
- On Mondays, the dental
elinic offers pediatric
appointments. Dr. Abi
Adewumi, an assistant
professor with the Department
of Pediatric Dentistry at the
University of Florida, is the
pediatric dentist at ACORN.
Dr. Adewumi specializes in
dental traumatology, cleft lip
and palate management and
craniofacial anomalies.

Heather Futch
is a new agent
at the Bradford
County
Extension
office. She will
split her time
between
Bradford and
Baker counties.


Futch grew up in Adel, Ga.,
which is north of Valdosta. It's
a small town, she said, and she
wanted to work in an area that
was similar. Working in
Bradford and Baker counties,
while living in Lake Butler,
seems to fit the bill.
"It's a lot like being at
home," she said. "You get to
know everybody."
It did not take Futch long as
a child growing up in Georgia
to figure out what she wanted
to do with her life. It occurred
to her when she began
participating in 4-H.
"I knew when I was in fifth
grade and started 4-H I wanted
to be a 4-H agent," Futch said.
"I wanted to work in
extension."
Futch participated in such
events as shooting sports and
poultry judging. She
participated in Future Farmers
of America and also played
flute as a member of her high
school's marching band.
She attended Abraham
Baldwin Agricultural College
and earned her associate's
degree before transferring to
the University of Georgia,
where she studied psychology
and sociology. Futch did not

dental hygiene on Thursdays,
the clinic provides oral surgery
and denture services in the
Rob Fox Oral Surgery Suite.
Using the latest available
data, the Florida Department
of Health valued the volunteer
services provided at ACORN
clinic in 2005 to be $2.1
million.
Annual revenues received by
.ACORN account for less than
half of what it costs to run the
clinic. "As it is, We are
operating at a tremendous loss
when it comes to patient fees
and overhead costs," Davis
said.

think, at that time, that she
would be going on to work as
an extension or 4-H agent.
"I got into college and really
didn't think that was an avenue
I was going to be able to do,"
Futch said. "Whenever
graduation came around, I
thought, 'Hmm, I think that's
what I want to do.'"
Now, she's doing just that
and looking forward to
working with area families in
areas such as financial
management and nutrition and
health.
"I'm ready to get going and
get to working," Futch said.
Not that she hasn't been
busy already. Futch began her
job on Dec. 15 and said she
"hit the ground running" as she
helped put a newsletter
together during her first week.
When Futch, who now lives
in Lake Butler, is not working,
she devotes her time to sewing
and spending time with her
dog.
Futch also likes to spend
time with family, which means
traveling back and forth
between Florida and Georgia.
At least now her luggage
should .make .those family
members happy.


ACornh are the tliniCs major
revenue resources.
Although the majority of
patients who receive services
at the clinic are from.Alachua
County (54 percent), Davis
said that she has seen a rise in
the numbers from Bradford
County (27 percent) and Union
County (9 percent). Patients
from a combination, of other
counties make up the
remaining 10 percent.
The ACORN Clinic serves
not only the uninsured, but the
underinsured, as well.
National surveys show that
the primary reason people are
uninsured or underinsured is
due to the high cost of health
insurance coverage.
The Kaiser Family
Foundation, an organization
providing global health care
information, conducted a
survey on American health
care in 2006.
The survey results found
that one in four American
families have had problems
paying for medical care during
the past year.
Nearly 30' percent say
someone in their family has

similar study done the previous

reported that more than 25
percent of the nation's housing

medical debt, including
inability to make rent or
mortgage payments.
The ACORN Medical Clinic
provides low-cost, high-quality
medical care and social
services to people with and
without health insurance-in
Alachua, Bradford and, Union
counties.
During 2006, ACORN
provided medical services to
nearly 35,000 people,
including outreach programs
such' as classroom dental
outreach, breast health and
nursing home visits.

Davis said the wait time for
an appointment depends upon
the patient's need. Generally,
depending upon the
complexity of the information
needed, the initial appointment
can take three to six weeks.
The clinic can mail an
information packet for a
patient to fill out, which
includes such information as
family size, income and
current public assistance
benefits being received, all of
which must be verified.

The ACORN medical clinic

It will be a house divided on Jan. 8 when couple Bob Clayton and Jean Perkins sit
down to watch Florida and Ohio State battle it out for the national championship.
Clayton shbws off his true colors-scarlet and gray-while Perkins, in her orange
and blue, playfully hangs a Gators flag over her husband's head. Also note the two
signs that hang in their carport-Buckeye Country and Alligator Alley.




Area couple on opposite


sides for BCS title game


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
Normally, during football
season, Jean Perkins can count
on her husband, Bob Clayto.n,
to encourage her during times
the Gators are struggling or a
call goes against them.
However, she will have no
such support on Jan. 8.
Clayton, who normally pulls
..,for the Gators right along with
.his wife, will be donning the
colors of scarlet and gray and
rooting on the Ohio State
Buckeyes.
Instead, Perkins may have to
turn to a family member who
bleeds orange and blue.
"I'm going to have to get my
son (a fellow Gators fan) to
come over from Lake City,"
she said.


Clayton is from Ohio and
has two degrees from OSU.
Perkins did not attend UF, but
her late husband and his family
did.
"I became a Gator through
osmosis," Perkins said.
You would think the
Kingsley Lake couple might be
dreading the showdown
between the two teams, but
Clayton said he was actually
excited upon hearing that the
two teams would play each
other.
Perkins, on the other hand,
could only think about the last
time the Gators traveled to
Arizona to play for the
national championship, which
resulted in a 62-24 loss in the
1996 Fiesta Bowl.
"I can remember back when
the Gators played Nebraska,"

DOLLARS AND SENSE!


Sellers are competing for
buyers these days. Actually,
sellers are always competing
against each other, trying to
offer the best value in hopes of
securing a full-price offer..
Such offers usually come to
sellers whose homes are in
model condition and priced at,
or below, fair market value.
While it's critical to get
your home in tip-top shape
before your listing, care needs
to be taken when you're consid-
ering the impact of remodeling
and renovating. Homeowners
who over-improve run the risk
of not being able to recoup
their investment, particularly if
they find they need to sell very
soon after completing such
work.
Homeowners are encour-
aged to contact a real estate
professional, who can conduct
a comparable sales analysis,
providing important informa-
tion about remodeling's impact
on sales value.


A report published last year
by Remodeling Magazine and
REALTOR Magazine gives
some clues as to where to best
spend your improvement dol-
lars. Upscale siding and mid-
range bathroom upgrades both
can recoup 100% (or more!) of
the investment cost. Even
minor kitchen remodeling sees
99% of its cost recovered at
sale time.
Basically, stick to designs
that will appeal to a majority of
buyers, since you can't be sure
that you'll find that unique
buyer who will appreciate the
more exotic tastes you might
enjoy. Be proactive, be practi-
cal, and be prepared to offer a
great value!

you solve a real estate puzzle, call

she said. "Those corn-fed boys
were huge, and they beat the
tar out of us. I just hope we
don't have a repeat."
The keys to success for the
Gators, as Perkins sees it, is
how their defense performs
against the Ohio State offense,
which is led by Heisman
Trophy winner Troy Smith.
"I think our defense has to
play really, really good,"
Perkins said, adding that the
quarterback tandem of Chris
Leak and Tim Tebow has to
play well also.
Oh, there's another factor,
too-penalties. Perkins
cringed when she recalled the
numerous penalties the Gators
have had in most of their
games this season.

Florida fans share thoughts on BCS title game

Those who bleed orange and
blue have not been this happy
during a football season since
the 1997 Sugar Bowl. That
was when the 1996 edition of
the Florida Gators wrapped up
their season by defeating rival
FSU and winning the
program's first-ever national
championship.
Ten years later, the Gators
have put themselves in
position to win their second
title when they play Ohio State


on Monday, Jan. 8. Several
area fans can see similarities
between this year's team and
that '96 team.
Starke attorney Dudley
Hardy remembers how the '96
team needed a couple of upsets
to play for the title. Those
happened in the form of Texas
beating Nebraska in their
conference championship
game and Ohio State defeating
Arizona State in the Fiesta
Bowl.
"The same kind of thing
happened this year," Hardy
said, referring to Michigan


first losing to Ohio State, then
Southern Cal losing to UCLA.
Barry Warren, an
investigator with the Starke
Police Department, said he
feels both 1996 and 2006
teams have comparable talent.
The difference is that the '96
team had more experienced
players, which makes this
year's run at the national
championship a pleasant
surprise for fans.
"It may be destiny," Warren
said.
Neither Warren nor Hardy
could envision the Gators
playing for the national
championship this year. In
fact, Union County Sheriff
Jerry Whitehead, a UF fan
himself, said he wanted to
know if there was any other

quarterback)
Troy Smith, and
the secondary
should be able
to contain their
receivers."





Florida fan out there who saw
this coming. He would find
that hard to believe.
"We had a tough schedule,"
Whitehead said, adding that he
thought 8-4 would be a good
record instead of the 12-1
record the Gators currently
have. ,
Hardy said he figured the
Gators wouldn't reach such
heights until head coach Urban
Meyer's third or fourth season.
Warren had the same
thought.
"It happened early, though
we knew we had good talent,"
Warren said.
Warren said if that talent

performs like it's capable of
doing, the Gators should win
the game. He thinks the Gators
have an advantage when it
comes to their defensive unit.
"I think the Gators' overall
defensive speed will be able to
contain (Ohio State
quarterback) Troy Smith, and
the secondary should be able
to contain their receivers,"
Warren said.
Speed was singled out as a
key by other fans as well.
Hardy said he thinks teams
from the South have more
speed than their counterparts to
the north, while Avery

Clayton said he thinks a key


for Ohio State is for 'the

He does not seem to think that

"(Tressel) really does what
(former head coach) Woody
Hayes used to do-keep the
team focused," Clayton said.
The Gators are no
"slouches," Clayton said,
adding that they have a good
quarterback in Leak and a
group of quick receivers. Still,
he is confident the Buckeyes
have the right head coach to
deliver the program's second
national title in four years.
"I see us winning," Clayton
said. "I have complete f4ith' in

Clayton is predicting Ohio
State to win by a touchdown,
though he added he hopes the
margin of victory is greater.
Perkins, on the other hand,
sees a much closer game. She
believes it will be a high-
scoring affair, but said she
thinks the Gators will win by
three.
Neither person, though, is
willing to back up his or her

said.
What you can bet on is that
there will be some good-

Clayton said it will- be a true
test of the marriage, but he was
only joking. Neither he nor
Perkins will take things too
seriously, no matter the
outcome.
"It's only a game," Perkins
said.

"If we can stop (Ohio
State's big plays on
offense), Florida has a
good chance of
winning."
-Jerry Whitehead


Land and Timber in Union
County, said it is the one trait
that gives the Gators a chance
to win.
"I'm hoping Ohio State
hasn't seen that kind of speed,"
Roberts said.
Gordon Smith, chief of the
Starke Police Department,
said, "I just don't think they've
seen the total defensive
package they're going to see in
Florida."
The defense will be going up
against this year's Heisman
Trophy winner in Troy Smith.
Hardy and Whitehead both
said the key is for the defense
"to keep Smith in the pocket
and not let him have a lot of
time to throw the ball.
Whitehead said the Gators
need to force Smith to throw
short passes and force the
Buckeyes to put together
lengthy drives.
Whitehead thinks there's a
misconception that Ohio
State's offense is of the old
three-yards-and-a-cloud-of-
dust variety, but that's not the
Buckeyes' style. They score on
big plays, he said.
"If we can stop that,"
Whitehead said, "I think
Florida has a good chance of
winning."
Several fans were also in
agreement that quarterback
Leak's play on offense will be
pivotal.
"I think that Chris Leak has
to play within himself and not
make crucial mistakes," Hardy
said.
Smith and Whitehead said
they think Leak will step up
and play big.

"He's due to have a big
game," Whitehead said.
Especially when he has
taken quite a bit of flak from
Florida fans despite posting
solid numbers and breaking
several school records, Smith
said.
"I think it's his time to
finally shine," Smith said.
For Leak to be successful,
Warren said the offensive line
must keep pressure off of him.


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
Union County graduate C.J.
Spiller did not get much of a
chance to contribute in his
team's loss in the Gaylord
Hotels Music City Bowl, while
Bradford High School
graduate Letroy Guion's team
experienced victory in the
Emerald Bowl.
Guion, a true sophomore
defensive lineman, was part of
the Florida State Seminoles'
starting lineup for the fourth
straight game. He recorded
three tackles (one solo) for
FSU in its 44-27 win over
UCLA, which" "netted'. head
coach Bobby Bowden his 30',
straight winning season at the
school,
True freshman running back
Spiller had only five carries for
24 yards-with a long run of
11 yards-in Clemson's 28-20
loss to Kentucky. Clemson,
after falling behind, abandoned
its running game, which in
essence kept Spiller from
gaining 1,000 yards on the
season. He finished the season
with 914 yards.
Still, it was quite a year for
Spiller. He was named the
ACC Rookie of the Week
three times, was a second-team


Deac Story, a Bradford High
School teacher who played on
the Gators' 1996 national
championship team, agreed
with Warren, saying he wants
to see Leak get off to a good
start. He does not want to see
the quarterback have a low
completion percentage with no
touchdowns in the first half.
"We don't want to have to
come from behind," Story said,
though he added the Gators are
certainly capable of doing so.
If Leak has time to throw the
ball, he has as good a group of
receivers as any quarterback to
throw to, according to Story
and Warren. Ohio State wide
receiver Ted Ginn Jr. receives
a lot of attention, but Warren
said the Gators have a receiver
similar in Dallas Baker. Baker
has 56 receptions for 897 yards
and nine touchdowns, while
Ginn has 59 receptions for
781 yards and nine
touchdowns.
"We've got some of the best
receivers in the country," Story
said.
Still, listening to some
people on television talk, the
Gators don't seem to have a
chance, Story said. There's
nothing wrong with talking
highly of Ohio State, he said.
The Buckeyes are a good team
and deserving of praise, but
they're not unbeatable, Story
said. As far as he's concerned,
the Buckeyes better be ready
to play.
"We didn't accidentally go
12-1 with the number-one


all-ACC pick and was runner-
up for the conference's rookie
of the year honor, which went
to Wake Forest quarterback
Riley Skinner.
Spiller finished the regular
season with the fourth-best
rushing average per game
(76.2) in the conference and
his average yards per carry
(7.4) was the best by any ACC
back since FSU's Warrick
Dunn in 1995. He had five
100-yard rushing games and

Geraldine Ragan was born in Orange, Texas, and was raised in southwest
Louisiana. As a teenager, she accepted Jesus Christ as her Savior. She then
asked God to use her life to glorify Him. Overnight, Geraldine became a
ventriloquist and believes her talent is a gift from God. She began using a
Jerry Mahoney figure and won many honors with her ventriloquism.
After graduation from high school, Geraldine was offered a fantastic career
with Disneyland of California, but declined in order to dedicate her life and
talent full time to Christian service. She joined the E.J. Daniels Evangelistic
Association and traveled with his team for six years, performing in large
citywide crusades.
In 1972, Gbraldine married PGA professional golfer, Dave Ragan, who was a
member of the Jerry Spencer Evangelistic Association. Geraldine and Dave
traveled with the Spencer team for five years. Dave later served in two
churches in Texas and Georgia and was a golf coach at two universities.
Geraldine and Dave are currently living in Birmingham, Ala. They have two
sons, Chuck and Paul.
Geraldine and "Ricky" minister to young children and old alike as they go to
banquets, conferences, church, city and area wide meetings all over America.
She has shared and entertained on special tours to the Holy Land, Europe,

expected. Even if there was a
playoff, someone would be
complaining about who got left
out.
That's why Roberts wasn't
surprised to hear some of the
backlash against his team
jumping Michigan in the BCS
standings.
"I think you're going to hear
some of that no matter what,"
he said. "The point is, (the
Gators are) in the game."
So now that they're in the
game, how do these fans feel
about their team's chances.
Well, they're either very
confident or just refuse to pick
against their team.
"If I didn't expect them to

win, I wouldn't travel 3,000
miles," said Hardy, who will
be attending the game. He
made an original prediction of
UF winning by a score of 24-
21, before realizing that would
mean Hetland would have to
make a field goal.
Laughing, he amended his
score: UF 28, OSU 21.
Warren and Whitehead both
predict a UF win by the score
of 30-24, while Smith sees the
Gators coming out on top by a
score of 35-21.
Roberts sees the game as
being a little closer, admitting'
that the Gators certainly aren't
going to have an easy time of
it.
"I think it's going to be a
struggle because Ohio State
has a well-rounded team,"
Roberts said. Still, he's picking
the Gators by a score of 31-28.
Story said he refrains from


"I tell you what, Ohio
State better be ready to
play, too. We didn't
accidentally go 12-1

most difficult schedule
in the NCAA."

picking scores, because there
are so many variables to take
into consideration. There's no
question about who he wants
to win, however, and he does
not care if the Gators win by
only a point, having to fend off
a late Ohio State rally.
"A win is a win," he said.
Win or lose, the Gators have
had a season to remember,
Smith said.
"I'm proud of the Gators,"
he said. "If we lose, I'm still
going to be proud. We pulled
off a miracle season."

3 accidents cost multiple lives


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor
Three deadly accidents over
the last week resulted in
multiple casualties, including
the death of 10-year-old
Mallory Lee Homer of Starke.
The 1994 Honda driven by
her father, 38-year-old Ronald
M. Homer Jr., was traveling
west on S.R. 100 on Dec. 27
when it veered across the
center line and struck an
eastbound vehicle around 7:50
a.m.
The collision took place 0.4
mile west of Meng Dairy
Road.
Mallory's injuries were
fatal, while her father was
taken to Shands in Gainesville
with critical injuries. Her
mother, 31-year-old Helina M.
Hromer, sustained serious
injuries and was transported to
Shands Starke.
Also still listed in serious.
condition as of Tuesday was
the driver of the second
vehicle, Frances M. Tyer, 65,
-of Starke.
SDespite being the only
passenger in the Homers' car
wearing a seatbelt, Mallory,


who was riding in the back
seat, was pronounced dead at
the scene.
Sheriff Bob Milner said-one
of his sergeants was within a
mile of the accident when it
happened, responding to
multiple calls from people who
had seen the car swerving back
and forth across the road and
the passenger's side door being
opened and closed.
Reports from witnesses who
had seen the car and the fact
that Ronald M. Homer Jr. was
arrested last August for
domestic battery led Milner to
speculate that an arguernent
was taking place at the time of
the crash.
Homer was arrested on Aug.
20 and bonded out of the
Bradford County Jail. The case
was dropped a month later
when neither adult victim
chose to see the case
prosecuted.
It is still unknown if alcohol
was a contributing factor in the
accident. Charges are pending
the results of a toxicology test.
Damage to the Honda and
Tyer's 2001 Lincoln totaled
$22,000.


Charges pending a toxicology 4
report are also being
considered against the driver in
a crash that occurred Dec. 26
in Baker County on C.R. 229,
south of Will Elledge Road.
Rita Ann Bay, 26, of Starke
was traveling southbound with
two passengers in a 1994
Mazda that left the road for
unknown reasons as it entered
a curve. Once off the road, the
right front of the vehicle struck
a tree.
Passenger Joann Norman,
50, of Starke was not wearing
a seatbelt and died of injuries
sustained in the crash. The
driver, who was also not using
a seatbelt, was transported to
Shands at UF with serious
injuries.
A second passenger, Eric
Charles Bay of Lawtey, age
unlisted, was transported to
Fraser Hospital in Macclenny.
He, too, suffered serious
injuries, but use ofa seatbelt
could not be determined.
Damage estimates totaled
$3,000.
At 11:51 a.m. on Dec. 29,
Debra C. Taylor, 47, of
Keystone Heights lost her life
when the 2001 Toyota she was
driving entered the intersection
of S.R. 16 and S.R. 21 on a red
light and was hit by a 1996
Mack truck driven by 53-year-
old Harvey L. Tripp of Fort
White.
The reason for running the
red light into the path of the
oncoming truck is unknown,
but alcohol use was not
implicated in the accident
Both Debra C. Taylor and
passenger Shelly L. Taylor, 15,
were reportedly nearing their
seatbelts at the time of the
accident. :
Shelly. was transported to
Shands in serious condition.
Tripp sustained no injuries
in the crash.
Damage to both vehicles
totaled $21,000.

The Clay County Sheriff's
'Office is investigating five
different burglaries in the
Keystone area, some of which

CCSO's spl.kesperson Mary
.listino said three of the
burglaries ma' be connected,
but said the investigation is
ongoing and more information
will be forthcoming in the
future:
These three incidents all
occurred on Dec. 30 in
Keystone.
'Two homes on. Beloit
Avenue were burglarized.
The first incident occurred
between 1:30 p.m. and 6:30
p.m. When the victim returned
home, she found her back door
open and items missing that
included earrings, a wedding
ring set, II bottles of
prescription medication,
cigarettes and beer. Total value
of the stolen property exceeded
SThe second incident
occurred between 2:10 p.m.
and 9 p.m.


The victim returned home to
find a window air conditioner
forced into the home through
the window. Missing items
indlude a Wilson Combat AR-
15 and a PlayStation 2. Total
estimated value of the missing
items was approximately
$2,450.
The third incident, which
law enforcement officials think
may be connected to the first
two, occurred on Columbia
Avenue Dec. 30 between 5
p.m. and 8:30 p.m.
The victims returned home
to find a window screen lying
on the ground. Missing were
some jewelry, rolls of coins
and prescription medication.
Total value of the missing
items is estimated at
approximately .$850.
Two other burglaries, which
investigators have not
connected to the first three,
occurred recently in Keystone.

Former minister arrested for sexual battery


A former Bradford County
minister who was already on
probation for using the Internet
to solicit minors for sex, was
arrested Dec. 18 on a Bradford
warrant for-sexual battery on a
child.
Aaron D.-West, 50, now of
Beverly Hills, Fla., was
arrested in Citrus County on
the Bradford warrant that
resulted from an ongoing
investigation into incidents that
occurred in Bradford County
during 2004.
Bradford County Sheriff's
Office Investigator Ron Davis
reported that BCSO's Cpl.
Robert Smith has kept in touch
with West's probation officer,
and through that contact
developed additional
information that ultimately led
to the arrest Dec. 18.
Davis said West is accused
of having attempted to have
sex with a 15-year-old minor
female. He said investigators
also have reason to believe
there may be a second child
victim involved in the 2004
incidents.
Davis said the second victim
is thought to have been in or


around the West's home in
2004. Investigators need to
hear from anyone who may
have information regarding this
second victim or any incident
involving West that may have
occurred during that
timeframe.
If you have information,
contact Smith or Davis at
BCSO:

(904) 966-6380
The Bradford warrant for
West carried a $250,000 bond,
but a Citrus County judge
reduced that amount to
'$20,000 and West was released
on bail Dec. 19. West will still
have to face this new charge in
court.
At the time of his arrest,
West was already serving a
five-year probation for using
the Internet to solicit minors
for sex.
West was arrested by BCSO
in August of 2005 on charges
that he sent nude photos of a
male to two Wisconsin minor
females. He told the two girls,
who were.14 and 15 at the

time, that the photos were of
himself, but they were of
another man.
He contacted the girls
through a computer chat room
and allegedly told investigators
he had tried to meet them in
person, but had never had any
physical contact with them.
SWest pled no contest to those
charges and was sentenced to
five years of sexual offender
probation, beginning in 2005.

Resisting

officer gets
woman

arrested
Samantha Lea Tyson, 28, of
Raiford was arrested Dec. 31
by the Starke Police
Department and charged with
disorderly intoxication and
resisting arrest with violence.
The Bradford County Sheriff's
Office later added a charge of
criminal mischief.
According to SPD's Officer
Shawn Brown, he was called
to Mate's Billabong in Starke
in relation to a person causing
a disturbance.
Officer Brown said when he
observed Tyson she was
visibly intoxicated and smelled
of alcohol. He reported that he
offered to find someone to
give her a ride home.
Officer Brown said Tyson
refused the ride and told him


she would drive herself.
Officer Brown said he told
Tyson she was too intoxicated
to drive, but she became
verbally abusive and again said
she would drive herself.
Tyson was placed under
arrest and Officer Brown said
she attempted to pull away
from him as he put the
handcuffs on and also
attempted to kick the window
out of his patrol car. Officer
Jason Crosby had responded to
assist Officer Brown and
Crosby opened the door to tell
Tyson to stop kicking. Tyson
allegedly attempted to bite
Officer Crosby.
Crosby used his Taser, but it
had no effect on Tyson.
Officer Brown quickly
transported Tyson to the
Bradford Jail and said Tyson
beat her head against the
window and cage in the car
during the transport.
Once at the jail, staff
members responded to assist
Brown in removing Tyson
