The county commission showed its
support for a proposed senior citizen
center run by the county by allocating
$10,000 toward its preliminary
design.
Those schematics will be used as
the county explores a number of
grant avenues for funding to actually
construct the facility, Iwhich would
be located on county-owned property
next to the health department on U.S.

A senior citizens advisory
committee was formed last year to
explore services to seniors in the
community and ways in which the
county could enhance those services,
with the possibility of a county-
sponsored center for the elderly very
much in mind.,
In addition to a handful of citizens,
the -county commission appointed
Community Development Director
Angela Macey to study, the issue.
On Monday, she presented the

The annual banquet held by the
North Florida Regional Chamber of
Commerce, which serves Bradford
and Union counties and the Lake
Region, is just around the corner and
tickets are on sale now.
Planned for Saturday, Jan. 27, the
banquet will be held for the first time

Commerce." The chamber will honor
several individuals and businesses,

business person, and small and large
business of the year. It will also-
present a special workforce award.

alongside the social hour.
The auction, which raises thousands
of dollars each year, supports the

programs. A live auction of a few
larger items will also take place this
year after dinner.
Silent auction items include an
overnight trip to Cedar- Key (which
includes a gift package), a half-

EMS unit to be transferred to Lawtey later this month


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor
A rescue unit and the
personnel to staff it will set
up shop in Lawtey later this
month.
Volunteer labor and donations
from local businesses added
1,800 square feet to the fire
station in Lawtey, making room
for additional bays and living
space for a full-time EMS
crews.
Money was included in this
yeaf's budget to turn a part-
time truck into a full-time truck
and add a new part-time unit.
The truck and staff headed
to Lawtey is currently housed
in Starke.
EMS Director Nelson Green
said placing the unit in Lawtey
would reduce response time
there and have a "marginal"
impact on the response times in
the rest of the county.
That reduced response time,
however, only applies to the
first call for service received
from the Lawtey area. Another
call coming in from the same
area around the same time
would still receive response
from Starke or Theressa.
Green said Lawtey had
prepared a very nice facility for
the crews who will be working
there, including a kitchen,
bunkroom, living room and
office area. After seeing the
finished work, he said he and
the county manager decided it
was time to move forward with
the transfer.
The county commission
unanimously approved the
move. The transfer will take
place on Jan. 20.
Once that happens, Starke
Fire Chief Tom Rowe indicated
space would be freed up in the
county's Starke EMS station

Tourist development tax moving to four percent


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor
Overnight accommodations
in hotels and other lodging
establishments will soon cost
an average of $1.55 more.
As expected following last
year's workshop with the
Tourism Development Council,
the county commission
unanimously voted to raise the
so-called bed tax by 2 percent,
bringing the total tax levied
locally to 4 percent.
The tax increase was buoyed
by the fact that travelers and not
residents will be the primary
payers. Hoteliers saw things
differently, believing their
businesses were being unfairly
burdened with the cost of
promoting tourism when other
businesses \\ill benefit from
tourist dollars as well.
New revenue is earmarked


to promote local events like
festivals and market the
county's conference center,
which booked a tw\.-day
CSX Transportation training
seminar that resulted in the
booking 87 local rooms after
an advertisement ran in Florida
magazine.
Chamber CEO Ron Lilly said
investing in tourism is good for
the county and a great way for
the county to move forward.
A representative of five local
hotels, claimed passing the new
tax onto customers and raising
room rates the average $1.55
per room, per night, would
reduce sales, but that is an
argument that has been rejected
by both the tourism council and
the county commission.
That representative did,
however, point to future
competition from a hotel
coming to Waldo and as many as


six other future establishments
in Alachua County. Those
competitors would take away
sales from this area, he said,
and business has been down
steadily on top of that.
Again he said it was unfair
to place the burden of funding
tourism development on hotels
alone, but Cooper said that
restriction is placed on the
county by the state. The bed tax
is the only source of funding the
state has authorized, he said.
Cooper said he supported the
bed tax because it is a method
of getting people who don't
live here to pay the county's
bills, adding that the conference
center has the capacity become
one of the county's greatest
assets.
The increase does place
Bradford ahead of Alachua and
Clay counties, which charge
3 percent, and Baker and


Putnam counties, which charge
2 percent. Duval. however,
currently charges 6 percent.


Based on the chamber's survey,
Bradford had the fourth highest
average room rate, behind


Putnam, Duval and Clay
counties.


Future commercial uses


on 301 maybe limited


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor
Holiday traffic demonstrated
just how congested U.S. 301 can
become, and now, at the dawn
of a new year, the county has to
begin answering the question
of how much more commercial
development can be allowed
along the corridor before saying
enough is enough.
The North Florida
Regional Planning Council is
recommending the county reject
a proposed land use change just
north of Hampton because the
additional traffic a commercial
development could create
there would exceed the level
of service standard established
in the county's comprehensive
plan.
Land currently zoned for
commercial development
isn't at issue, but developers
who, one after, the other, are
requesting that the acres and
acres of agriculturally zoned
land lining the corridor be
rezoned for commercial use
could see those requests denied
if 'the commission f6llowsv

Vince Parker appeared
before the county zoning board
Monday night to request a
commercial land use change.
He has proposed purchasing
the five southernmost acres of a
parcel owned by J.D. and Greg
Griffis just north of C.R. 18 for
the development of a hotel or
truck stop.
Examining the request, the
planning council staff projected
that an intense commercial use
such as a shopping center could
increase the.number of evening
peak hour trips past the property
from 3,538 vehicles to 4,150,
dropping the roadway's level
of service from a.C down to a
D. The lowest level of service
standard allowed for that
area under the transportation
circulation element of the
county's. comprehensive plan
is a C.
At this stage, Parker is only
asking that the county's future
land use map be amended to
show the property is available
for commercial instead of
agricultural development.
Rezoning -the property for a
'Iarticular type of comrrnerkil'
" development is the next'st~j "'''
While a' hotel could be


developed under the general
,Commercial category, Parker
would have to come back to
the board with a commercial
intensive rezoning request if
he wants to place a truck stop
at the site.
Even if a trick stop wouldn't
necessarily generate the
number trips projected by
planning council staff, county.
commissioners will have to
consider the impact of other
types of intensive development
on 301.
The reason potential
shopping center traffic is used
to project traffic numbers is
precisely because that use is
so intensive. After all, once
the commercial rezoning has
taken place, any use allowed
under that category can be
developed there, so potential
future use of the property has
to be considered.
The zoning board

reimbursement.
"I have asked several times

Painting on display at library


Ruth Darley always wanted to
learn how to paint, but said she
thought she would never have
the patience for learning all the
"how-tos." However, after
watching Donna Dewberry's
one-stroke painting technique
on television, she decided to
give it a try.
She enrolled in the one-stroke
painting class offered at the
Bradford-Union Area Career


and Technical Center. She found
out she really enjoyed painting.
Darley said she has now been
accused of trying to. paint
anything that doesn't move.

Hate crime

incidents

drop around

state
Reported hate crimes in
Florida fell by more than 22
percent last year to their lowest
level since 1998, according
to the state attorney general's
office.
A total of 260 hate crimes
were reported by local law
enforcement agencies that year,
down from the 334 total the
year before.
Local and state law
enforcement agencies weire
credited for working with
community leaders to foster a
spirit of understanding among
all Floridians. The state also
cited efforts by the attorney
general's office to secure new
laws protecting civil rights and
religious worship, as well as
training programs designed
to.help local law enforcement
recognize and address hate
crimes.
Local law enforcement
agencies throughout Florida
reported a total of 130 hate
crimes motivated by the
victim's race or color during
2005, down almost one-third
from the previous year's total
of 190. Hate crimes motivated
by religion declined from 41
incidents to 36, while offenses
motivated by the victim's sexual
orientation dropped from 52
to 34. Hate crimes motivated
by ethnicity or national origin
rose slightly from 51 to 58
incidents.
Hate crime incidents
motivated by race accounted for
exactly half the reported hate
crimes in 2005. A combination
of just two motivation
categories, race and ethnicity/
national origin, accounted for
almost three-quarters (72.3
percent) of all reported hate
crimes in 2005.
The report showed that
assaults against individuals
accounted for just under 41
percent of all hate crimes, that
category's smallest share since
2001.
Data in the Hate Crimes
Report was submitted by local
law enforcement agencies to
the Florida Department of
Law Enforcement, which then
provided it to the attorney
general's Office for reporting.
Since 1994, the office has
! conducted aat~:ri.rmes trainjirjg
seminars for state and Jocal.
law enforcement agencies
throughout Florida.
Through the end of the period
covered by the latest annual
report, more than 3,500 law
enforcement personnel from
more than 272 jurisdictions had
received this training.
The Hate Crimes in Florida
Report is prepared each year
pursuant to the Hate, Crimes
Reporting Act, section 877.19,
Florida Statutes. The report
summarizes data collected
by local law enforcement


agencies and submitted to the
Florida Department of Law
Enforcement.
The report does not include
unreported crimes or those that
may have been hate-related
but were not classified as such
by the local law enforcement
agency.

assistance
Energy assistance is
important to all that receive it,
but it is critical for the elderly
.who are more at risk for life-
threatening illness or death if
their homes are too cold in the
winter.
Older adults are especially
vulnerable to hypothermia,
or abnormally low body
temperature. The drop in
body temperature can be
a result of staying in a cold
Splac.e Tor too6 long. According
to the National Institutes of
SHealth, hypothermia kills
approximately 600 Americans
every year and half of those are
65 years old or older.
As the body ages, its ability
to endure long periods of
expose to cold is lowered.
Older people are at an increase
risk for hypothermia because
certain illnesses, such as
diabetes, and medicines affect
the body's response to cold.
Hypothermia affects the brain
making the victim unable to
think clearly or move well.
Signs to look for that indicate
hypothermia include confusion,
drowsiness, slowed or slurred
speech, shivering or stiffness in
the arms and legs, weak pulse
or low blood pressure, or poor
control over body movements
or slow reactions.
If you suspect that someone is
suffering from the cold and you
have a thermometer available,
take the temperature and if it's
96 degrees or lower, contact
911 for emergency help.
To prevent hypothermia,
in addition to dressing
...appropriately for the outdoor
climate, older adults must
make sure their home is warm.
Energy assistance is available
for those 60 and older who are
having problems keeping their
home warm. The Emergency
Home Energy Assistance for
the Elderly program is available
for people 60 years of age
and older, who meet income
guidelines and are experiencing
an energy-related crisis.
A crisis may be an impending
cut-off of electricity, lack
of fuel, wood, blankets and
heating unit, or a broken heating
system.
Individuals interested in


applying for program assistance
should contact the Elder
Helpline at (800) 96-Elder or

News from Bradford County, Union County and the..Lake Region area




Burn bans lifted, but foresters urge caution


BY TERESA
STONE-IRWIN
Telegraph Staff Writer
Although the Bradford and
Union County burn bans have
been lifted, Union C6unty
Forester Jay Tucker urges area
residents to use caution. "We
are still within the severe and
moderate drought lines. To be
at low risk for wildfires, we
like to have between 10 and 12
inches of rainfall whereas
we've only had between 3 and
5 inches." Tucker said.
Residents can once again
burn their yard waste without
authorization as long as they
meet the required setbacks for
their area. Yard waste consists
debris such as grass clippings,
brush, leaves or tree limbs. It is
illegal to burn household
garbage including paper
products, treated lumber,
plastics, rubber, tires,
pesticides, paint and aerosol
containers.
The burning of yard waste
must be at least 25 feet from
your home and any heavily
wooded areas, 50 feet from a
paved public road, and at least
150 feet from any other
occupied buildings.
Yard waste piles should be
no larger than 8 feet in
diameter. Piles that are larger
than 8 feet in diameter require
a burn authorization from the
Division of Forestry.
Areas surrounding the
outside of the pile should be
cleared down to the bare soil to
avoid potential spreading of
the fire. Yard waste can be
burned only after 9 a.m. and
must be extinguished at least
one hour before sunset.
A fire should never be left
unattended and a water hose
and shovel should be readily
available 'in case the fire
escapes. A person burning
yard debris can be held liable
for- any. damages- to another

Plane's
emergency
landing leaves
2 men injured

BY LINDSEY KIRKLAND
Times Editor
A 1940s airplane made an
emergency landing in a field
near Worthington Springs on
Saturday at 11:20 a.m., leaving
its pilot and passenger injured.
The plane was occupied by
John Gordon, 74, and Donald
Riley, 77, both of Lake City.
According to Sheriff Jerry
Whitehead, after emergency
medical personnel and law
enforcement arrived, the two
men were taken to Shands at
the University of Florida.
Riley and Gordon had
stopped at the airport for a fly--


in breakfast. Upon taking off
again, they began experiencing
engine trouble.
The plane only had One
engine, and when it began to
fail, Gordon, the pilot, headed
back for the airport.
The two men never made it
that far and had to make an
emergency landing in a field
northwest of the airport, near
C.R. 239A.
Captain Garry Seay said the
plane crash landed at a 45-
degree angle and that both men
received minor injuries from
the crash.
The sheriffs office said an
airborne airplane that was
close to Riley and Gordon saw
the accident and reported :the
crash.
The Federal Aviation
Administration is investigating
the accident.
Further information on the
condition of Riley and Gordon
could not be found as of press
time.

Editorial/Opinion

Our most precious freedom


The original U.S. Constitution
was, and remains, an outstanding
document, but it wasn't perfect because
it omitted specific freedoms required
by colonists who had lived under
harsh regimes and now, in the new
world, wanted a number of personal
rights embedded in its charter.
Amendments one through 10,
known as the Bill 'of Rights, were
added immediately. Since that time
(1791), 16 additional amendments,
for a total of 26, have been added.
The first amendment to the
Constitution states, that Congress
cannot pass any law making any
religion the official religion of the
United States, or take away the
freedom to worship as one pleases.
Congress cannot take away or restrict
freedom of speech or freedom of the
press. Citizens may protect themselves
against damaging insults spoken or
written about them by civil lawsuits,
and no one may advocate (call for) the
overthrow of the government by war.
Congress may not take away the
right of peaceful assembly (gathering
of people). Riots or mobs may
be broken up, since they are not
peaceful. The rights of petitioning
the government for any redress
(correction) wanted made by it, or any
grievance (complaint) made against
it, may not be suspended.
The freedoms written into the Bill
of Rights may or may not be listed
iii order of importance, but the first
two, freedom of religion and freedom
of speech, certainly ranked among
the most important in the minds of
the Constitution writers, and fiay
continue to rank numbers one and two
in the minds of Americans today.
SFreedom of speech is ranked first
in this essay because the silencing of
ministers would preclude the freedom
._alciga,,1w.can neligia flourish
where discussion of its tenets is.
barred?
The same sentence that provides
for freedom of speech also provides
for freedom of the press, two sides
of the same coin contained in the
first amendment. Inseparable, neither
would be possible without the other.
,In the late 1700s, the printing of
pamphlets on every subject was
widespread, somewhat similar to
commercials on radio and television
today. Fiery- orators spoke on every
subject, as did religious leaders of the
day, keeping the populace informed,
often with conflicting views, on any
and all subjects.


Early on, colonists recognized
the necessity of widespread
communication and required their
delegates to include constitutional
provisions rather than legislative
action to protect their interests.
Any restriction placed on mankind
is going to be tested, and freedom of
Speech and press is tested daily by
individuals and groups for their own
reasons. Almost daily, and particularly
during political campaigns, candidates
and office holders say things better
left unsaid, and often regret the
comment.
Some officials have said things
which they knew would cross the line,
but feel an apology will suffice for the
injured party. Those people believe
the old adage, "It is easier to get
forgiveness than to get permission,"
which does work at times, but not
always as some have found.
Some high-ranking officials have
lost their jobs for giving voice to
their thoughts, which may have been
legal under the freedom of speech
amendment, but crossed the line of
public 'opinion. Sometimes being
legal isn't enough; public opinion isn't
always governed by statute.
There are some limits on freedom of
speech; the amendment doesn't give
anyone the right to cry "FIRE!" in a
crowded theater, unless a fire actually
exists.
The U.S. Supreme Court has
interpreted some parts of the
Constitution very broadly; with some
people saying it has gone too far
afield in recognizing the burning of
the American flag as being a figure
of speech, and protecting those who
would desecrate our flag in that
manner.
It appears we prefer the court to
err on the liberal side,, rather than
rendering strict opinions based on. the
w written \ ord. We live by the adage
that "the Supreme Court may not
always be right, but it is never wrong."
We recognize the Court represents the
law of the land, and we abide by the
law, retaining the right to petition
congress for changes in the statutes.
The Constitution has withstood
many attempts to circumvent freedoms
outlined in the document, but 26
amendments in more than 200 years
is testament to the solid foundation
on which our nation was founded, and
we all sleep better at night with our
Constitution firmly in place.

FIRE
Continued from p. 1B

closed to travel during one of
the busiest tourist seasons of
the year, July 2-6. Estimated
damages exceeded $640
million.
To finally bring the fire
under control, it took the
assistance of 10,000
firefighters from 47 states and
more than 150 aircraft. It was
reportedly' the largest
coordinated fire response in
the history of our country.
The spreading of wildfires
such as these may have been
avoided-or at least easily
controlled-by the use of
prescribed fires, thinning,
vegetation management, pine
straw harvesting and fire
infrastructure.
Closer to home, on June 17,
1998, an Alachua County fire
spread to the Waldo area. The
fire, which threatened to burn
the entire city of Waldo,
resulted in the burning of
7,000 acres, a mass evacuation.'
and the destruction of one
building.
Waldo landowner Clark
Smith regularly conducted
prescribed burning on his
property and was ultimately
responsible for providing a
firebreak that helped save the
city from a more severe fire.

Being a Union County
forester for 22 years, Jay
Tucker has seen that newer
landowners in Bradford and
Union counties are not as
aware of the importance of
prescribed fire on forest lands.
Bradford County Forester,
Nicole Howard agrees.
"More recent landowners
don't quite have the same
understanding towards
prescribed fire. They may be
from different areas of the
country not used to seeing
prescribed burning and falsely
believe it is hurting the
ecosystem. They don't have
the understanding that it is
actually good for the
environment in this area," said
Howard.
People in general have tile
misconception that fire kills
wildlife and plant life in the
forests.
"In actuality, wildlife habitat
is improved and plant growth
in regenerated due to
prescribed burnss,". Ho. ard.
said.
Prescribed fire has long been
known to reduce fuel loads
(the build-up of plant
vegetation on the ground that
can lead to catastrophic
wildfire), reduce ladder fuels
(vegetation growth that allows
fire to climb into trees), control
competing vegetation
(uneccessary plant growth that
blocks tree sprouts and native
plant growth), recycle nutrients
back into the soil and reduce
some insect pests.
Despite the well-recognized
benefits of prescribed fire, its
use has not been as widespread
as many forestry experts would
like.
Further, some plant and
animal life actually cannot
survive without controlled
burning environments.
"Many of our native plants


Union County forester Jay Tucker (left) with
Bradford County Forester Nicole Howard.


.and wildlife are either
threatened or endangered due
to the lack of natural
disturbances, which includes
fire.
The native red-cockaded
woodpecker is one such
example of an endangered
species that relies on this type
of habitat management to
survive.
Howard added that wire
grass is an example of plant
life that needs fire in order to
live.
"Wire grass is a fire-
dependent species which,'
without frequent burns, will
not survive in an area for a
prolonged periods of time.
Longleaf pines also grow this
way. They will stay in a little
grass stage until surrounding
vegetation is burned away,
causing the pines pop up out of
the ground," Howard said.
Prescribed burning is the
most cost-effective type of
management for removing fire
hazardous fuels.
However, other fuel
management techniques such
as mechanical or chemical use
and timber harvesting may be
more appropriate when
liability and safety issues
outweigh the benefits of
prescribed burning.

Forest
management

Forest management is the
proper care and control of
forests to maintain the health,
soil condition, water quality,
wildlife preservation, and
beauty of the land
"Think of forest
management as a means of
mimicking mother -nature
.through,the use .pf not >onl\
prescribed burns, but thinning.
clear cuts and mowing,"
Tucker said.
There are several benefits to
forest management. Properly
maintained forests protect
water quality by keeping
streams and lakes clean,
control run-offs, minimize
erosion, assist the natural
process by which rainwater
percolates through soil layers.
Tucker and Howard work
with landowners in Union and
Bradford counties respectively,
to help landowners meet the
objectives for their land.
The forestry departments
assist landowners with tree
identification, diseases, pest
and insect problems,
prescribed fire and fire
prevention, thinning,
harvesting and replanting.
Forest management allows


for the control of pests,
diseases and invasive, non-
native plants that destroy the
valuable trees in a forest.
Cutting back old growth
renews forestland by creating
and protecting a habitat that
attracts particular types of
wildlife, perhaps many
threatened or endangered
species.
According to Howard, now
is the time to be putting in fire
lines. Fire lines are harrowed
ground barriers around
property lines that a fire cannot
cross.
"We promote fire lines to
decrease the risk of a wildfire
entering your property, or in
the case of a controlled burn,
reduces the risk of the fire
leaving your property and
causing damage, creating a
liability," said Howard.
Fuel breaks are used to
break up vegetative fuels near
homes. The first 30 feet around
the exterior of the home is
considered as the most critical
defensible space. The area
should be clear of all highly
flammable plants and trees.
Ways of creating fuel break
around the outside perimeters
of a home include using
landscape features such as
driveways, walkways, ponds
or fencing made with
nonflammable material.
Wherever possible, fire-
resistant, low-growing ground
covers should be used to
reduce fire danger and
discourage weeds. Using
plants with a high moisture
content or plants with.
succulent' or leathery leaves
will keep this area fire
retardant.
Today, our community is at
a greater risk of wildfire
because of dead and dying
trees and brush left from
hurricanes of..the.e,.past fe.w
years. The large accumulation
of trees and vegetation on the
ground creates a dangerous fire
hazard as well as increase the
time it will take firefighters to
reach a fire once it starts.
Large accumulations of fuel
could potentially create a
wildfire hazard for years to
come.
The rate for fire line plowing
is $82 per hour with a $50
minimum. For on-site
prescribed burning assistance,
the fee is $22 per hour with a
$100 minimum charge.
The public should be aware
that Forestry telephone
numbers in the local directory
are wrong. To reach the
Bradford County forester, call
(904) 964-5436. To reach the
Union County forester, call
(386) 496-4944.

In Memory

In Loving Memory
of
Doris Cummings
Beloved wife, mother, sister, niece,
cousin and friend.
Although we only had her here on
earth for a short time, her life and
her gift to touch the hearts of all
those who knew her and had the
privilege to hear her ministry in
song and music were truly blessed.
She is survived by her beautiful
daughter, Amanda Cummings, and
her beloved husband, John
Cummings. She is also survived by
three brothers, Timmy, William,
Jerry Dean and theirfamilies.
Because her life was so short on
this earth, those who loved her
can take comfort that God needed
her more in heaven than those of
us on this earth.
We will always love her and she
will always be in our hearts.
Our Beloved Doris
Born: March 3,1958
Passed: Jan. 1,2006

Starke Kiwanians pull the trigger on new event


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
Ready, aim, raise funds for
Bradford County youth!
The Kiwanis Club of Starke
did just that on Jan. 6 when it
hosted its inaugural shooting


Dean Dietrich grabs his gun as he prepares to put his
skills to the test at one of the shooting stations.


Don Kerce lines up his
shot. He hit 67 of 100
shots and took first
place in Class C.


Mary Vallandingham (right), a Kiwanis Club member
operated the clays while her son, Tyler Bicknell,
recorded participants' scores.


HOW MUCH ARE YOU LOSING?


Today's real estate market
provides an excellent opportu-
nity for renters to turn their
monthly payments into equity.
While rising slightly, interest
rates now are still much lower
than in the past ten to twenty
years, and home prices in many
areas are adjusting back down
to reflect reasonable levels of
appreciation.
It's critical to begin taking
those first steps towards home
ownership, and here are some
reasons why.
Money paid for rent goes
into the pocket of the landlord,
while money paid for a mort-
gage goes toward equity in the
home. In other words, you
keep the money you pay for
your home, as its investment
value increases with every pay-
ment.
Over the last decade, the
cost of rent has increased an
average of 3% each year. At
that rate, payments of $1,000
per month would total


$137,567 over ten years, with
no accumulation of equity or
wealth.
If you could put $10,000
down on a $210,000 home
today and pay $1,100 per
month, your equity would total
$138,521 over that same ten-
year period. That's your
money! This calculation
assumes a 30-year fixed rate
loan at 6.5% and an annual
appreciation of 4.5%.
So sit down and do the
math, and then contact a local
real estate agent to discuss
your best options for home
ownership. It's never too late
to start building your future!
If you need information to help
you solve a real estate puzzle, call
me at (352) 275-8531, American
Dream of Northeast Florida, Inc.,

The weather the night before
had an effect on the
turnout-with some people
having planned on making the

who did show up enjoyed a
perfect, sunny day.
Cash prizes totaling $1,650

participants, including Todd
Simmons, who had the highest
overall average (95 out of 100
shots).
Prizes were handed out for
first-third place in three

Clayton Huling placed first
in Class A with a score of 93,
followed by Hugh Bennett (90)
and Edwin Johns (87).
Mike Thompson was tops in
Class B with a score of 83,
followed by Glen Laurcey (83)

The scores at predetermined

learn the job themselves. They
then teach the job to the
handicapped person.
The job coaches have all the
skills necessary to train
mentally handicapped people,
so the employer doesn't have
to worry about encountering
special problems in training a
mentally handicapped
employee. In fact, during the
training period, the employer
will be getting two employees
for the price of one-the
mentally handicapped person.
and the job coach.
Arc doesn't just leave it at
that, either. "We know that the
requirements of a job can
change through time. Job
coaches are always available to
go back to the workplace and
provide additional training,"
said Mosley.
Job coaches also pay regular
visits to the workplace to
ensure that both the employer
and employee are still happy
with the situation.
Mosley said most
handicapped people make good
employees. "They are
dependable and they aim to
please," she said. "They are
willing to learn and are very
motivated and enthusiastic.
They are proud of what they
accomplish."
The people who participate
in the supported employment
program are not new to work.
They have all participated in
the work done in the different
departments at Sunshine
Industries. Mosley said they
have already learned how to
work together as a group under
the supervision of non-
handicapped employees.
They know the importance
of being on time and of staying
on task until the job is done,
she said.
"They already have a lot of
employability skills that are
necessary for any workplace,"
she said.
Mosley said they try to
match the skills and interests
of the handicapped person with


the job. Housekeeping
activities and fast-food service
are two top areas, "but they
like to do almost anything,"
said Mosley. "They just want
to work."
The age of the employee
pool is 18 to 35 and they are
available asindividuals or as
"enclaves."
Mosley said an enclave
would be a group of six to
eight handicapped people who
would have a full-time Arc
supervisor. This enclave and its
supervisor would work at the
employer's job site on tasks
set by the employer. The Arc
supervisor would be in charge of
making sure the handicapped
employees are correctly trained
and that the assigned tasks get
done on time.
Sunshine Industries Director
Sherry Ruszkowski said that
people who have never worked
with a handicapped employee
will find themselves very
pleasantly surprised.
"Their contributions can be
phenomenal," said said. "We
get a lot of work done here
(Sunshine Industries) with Arc
employees. They can easily
take the skills they have
learned here and move them
into the community setting."
Ruszkowski said people are
often afraid of what they do not
know. "When we talk to
people about hiring people
with disabilities, they are
sometimes reluctant," she said.
"But they are people, just like
any other people. They have
strengths and weaknesses, but
they want to work."
In addition to recruiting jobs
for the mentally handicapped,
Arc also runs' a janitorial
business that contracts with
businesses and homes to
provide cleaning services.
A crew of mentally
handicapped workers is
supervised by an Arc
employee. Rates are negotiable
and Mosley said rates only need
to cover the salaries of the
people involved.

"Assisted Living"

This is devoted to raising public awareness about this model of service for the elderly.

Assisted living represents a combination of housing and personal care services to elderly

individuals who may need assistance. Assisted living fills a need between total

independence and total dependence. Assisted living can deliver care to the elderly in a

more cost-effective way than other elderly healthcare options. Su-El's Retirement Home

provides this in a homelike setting, Su-El's services are tailored-for the individual which

allows a resident to maintain independence vs. support services, which allows a person to

age in peace. Su-El's has a variety of senior housing alternates available to address the

varying needs of seniors. This enables a resident to adjust and add to the list of ADL's

without moving to a more institutionalized setting. We also provide Adult day-care for

those times when a small break in routine is necessary. Su-El's is 45 minutes from

Jacksonville; 25 minutes from Gainesville Just 1 mile South on CR-325, Hampton,

BC drivers find success behind the wheel in


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
Two-track championships, a
runner-up finish and a lot of
wins. It all equates to quite a
year for some local drivers
who at Columbia Motorsports
Park in 2006.
Doyle Boatwright and Jason
Garver, both of Starke,
claimed the track
championships in the super
late model and Florida
modified divisions,
respectively, while Trevor
McKinley, a 17-year-old
__jaokiefrom L.aw-ey -finished-
second behind Boatwright in
the super late model division.
Throw Farelon
McClellan-who. has won
many races and championships
over the years (mostly in the
Florida modified
division)-into the mix and
you've got quite a strong
group representing Bradford
County at the track in
Ellisville.


For Boatwright, it was his
second championship in three
years and third overall. It came
despite a few mishaps during
the season, which included
wrecking a car.
Still, Boatwright won three
races and, most importantly,
tallied the most points in his
division.
Boatwright won his first
championship in 1998, which
came by the closest margin in
track history. He entered the
last race of that season trailing
in the points standing, but
came from behind in the latter
stages of that race to win and
claim the overall
championship by three points.
The second championship
for Boatwright occurred in
2004. He won 11 races that
year as well as placing third in
the Florida Pro Series points
standings.
Boatwright is a member of
the Dixie Speed Racing team,
which is owned by Lawtey's


Henry Hodges. Hodges said
Boatwright is a good driver
and tireless worker-qualities
that have led to his success.
His crew also 'works
tirelessly and are a big part of
Boatwright's success as well,
Hodges said. Crew members
include Ryan Mason, Tim
Parrott and Adam Wilson.
"We have the best crew in
Florida," Hodges said. "They
work tirelessly to make us near
perfect for a race."
Garver, like Boatwright,
celebrated a championship at
the end of the season, despite
what he termed a rough start.
Still, he rebounded and won 14
straight races-including a 50-
lap special-to end the season.
It was the sixth track
championship for Garver, who
also came out on top in 1995,
1996, 1998, 2003 and 2005.
In all, Garver won 18 races.
He even took the bounty at the
end of the last race that was
put up by Lightning Pawn


Starke's Doyle Boatwright (left), shown with Dixie Speed Racing owner Henry
Hodges, won his second super late model championship in three years at Columbia

and Son Logging and Terry
Roberts.
Garver, who eclipsed the
100-win mark for his career in
2004, also won a feature race
at New Symrna Speedway on
Nov.25.
One day, McKinley may
boast of 100-plus wins. His
rookie season could certainly
be termed a success. He
recorded his first feature win
and earned several top-five
finishes along with placing
second to Boatwright in the
points standings.
He may have competed
against Boatwright, but
McKinley benefited from the
veteran driver as well. The
McKinley family said thanks
go to Boatwright, Garver and
McClellan-and their
teams-for their help, advice
and support throughout the
year.
Hodges said he and
Boatwright are always willing
to help others, adding he was
"tickled" when McKinley won
his feature race.
McKinley also expressed his
thanks to friends and family,

The start of the new year did
not bring an immediate end to
a losing streak, but the
Keystone Heights boys
basketball team did finally
snap that streak, defeating
Lake City Christian 32-20 on
Jan. 6.
Keystone (5-8 prior to Jan.
9) dropped its fourth game in a
row when it lost to Baldwin in
its first game of 2007, but
Tyler Brunink and Greg Taylor
each scored 10 points to help
lead the Indians past Lake City
Christian.
It was the seventh straight
game that Taylor has led the


all-star game for the third
straight year. This year, the
Tigers will be represented by
wide receiver Justin Griffin
quarterback Austen Roberts,
and defensive back Brandon
Shoup.
Keystone Heights had two
players selected for the third
straight year-quarterback/
defensive back Blake Lott and
linebacker Jack Taylor-while
Bradford had just one
selection-Division I recruit
Corian Garrison, a defensive
lineman.
This is the fourth straight
year that at least six players
from the three schools
combined have been selected
to play in the game.
More than 75 senior players
and coaches from Northeast
Florida were selected to
participate in this game. The
players from Bradford,
Keystone and Union County
will play for the South all-stars
team, which will be coached
by Orange Park head coach

Bradford boys' rally comes up short


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
Eugene Blye sparked a late
rally, but the Bradford boys
basketball team could not
completely erase a 10-point
deficit, falling 54-49 to District
2-4A opponent Baker County
on Jan. 5 in Starke.
Bradford (6-5 prior to Jan.
5) scored seven straight points
in the last six minutes to pull
within 52-49 with 42 seconds
remaining. The run started
with two straight baskets by
Blye-one following an
offensive rebound and another
following his own steal.
Antwan Brown then had a
steal and was fouled on the
subsequent shot attempt. He
made both free throws with 59
seconds remaining to make the
score 52-48.
Blye came up with another
steal and was later sent to the
free throw line, where he made
1-of-2 attempts.
Baker County's Thorn


Crowley broke his team's
scoring drought with a basket
that resulted in the last points
of the game.
Bradford missed three
straight shots at the end of the
game.
Blye finished the game with
17 points to lead the
Tornadoes, who suffered just
their second loss in the district.
Bradford was 3-2 heading into
this past Tuesday's game
against district opponent
Ridgeview.
Marcus Wilson also scored
in double figures for Bradford
with 14 points. Justin
Henderson finished with eight
points.
It was a nip-and-tuck game
in the first half with Blye and
Wilson carrying most of the
load for the Tornadoes. The
two combined for 12 points in
the first quarter, but it was
Henderson who drained a 3-
pointer to put the Tornadoes
up 15-13 vith 10 seconds
remaining in the quarter.


Baker County, however,
would send the game into the
second quarter tied at 15-all
after Jamal Lee converted on a
layup before the buzzer.
Bradford opened the second
quarter with three straight
turnovers, but another 3-
pointer by Henderson put the
Tornadoes up by two.
Wilson added a 3-pointer
late in the quarter before
Brown made two consecutive
