King


honored


in special


service

BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

Baptist minister. Political activist.
Nobel Peace Prize winner. Civil
rights leader.
The late Dr. Martin Luther King Jr..
was, and still is; many things to many
people, and an annual remembrance
of his transformative life is held
locally by those who carry on his
message, his mission, his dream.
Technology allowed the
congregation assembled at Mt. Pisgah
AME Church to revisit a moment
in King's life via video when that
mission was producing as many as
50 death threats a day, but still King
remained committed to the principle
of nonviolent social action, believing
that "an eye for an eye" would leave
the entirenation blind.
By the age of 27, the young
pastor was leading the Montgomery
Bus Boycott, which resulted in an
end to racial segregation on public
transportation. He helped found
the Southern Christian Leadership
Conference to unite black churches
in the struggle for racial equality
through nonviolent protest.
That struggle and the attention given
to the discrimination and violence
directed toward blacks, including
Sthe--1963--March- on Washington,


became the Civil
Rights Movement ...
of the '1960s,
a movement
that ended
desegregation and
won for blacks
the right to vote.
King sought
social justice
in-- a number of
areas, including
employment
and workers'
rights, and it
was speaking on
behalf of striking
sanitationworkers
in Tennessee in
1968 when the
peaceful pastor
who rallied so
many. toward
change was slain.
Commenting
on King's loyalty
to the nonviolent
path, Cynthia *1,.
Ross said, "Love
is the more
excellent way." J il e
Va ar a
Petteway, who Ping wit
.presided over the
special service,
said King stood
for justice and equality, not just for
one race, but also for people all over


the world.
"He stood for that. He died for
that," Petteway said.
Starke Mayor Carolyn Spooner
spoke of local history surrounding the
commemoration of King's birthday,.
saying the first such service was held
21 years ago. She invited to the front
Patricia Gainey, who wore a T-shirt
created for that first service back
in 1986 at the RJE gymnasium. A

Spooner said, illustrating how far
society has come because of King's
influence.

Man charged with breaking into restaurant


A 37-year-old Lawtey man was
arrested Jan. 14 for burglary and theft
of the Budget Inn on U.S. 301 north
of Lawtey.
Deputies received a tip that Warren
Christopher Wright was staying at
the motel. Wright was wanted on
a warrant from Duval for felony
battery, according to Deputy Aaron
Black.
When deputies arrived at the


business at 6:20 a.m., they found
Wright hiding behind the motel, and
the restaurant had been broken into,
Cpl. Robert A. Smith said.
Wright was charged.with breaking
out the glass in the front door of the
restaurant during the early morning
hours,accordingtoCpl. Smith. Wright
allegedly removed approximately
$7,000 in currency from a cabinet
and $400 from the cash register, Cpl.


Smith said. An undetermined amount
of cigarettes from' the counter area
was also missing, Cpl. Smith said.
Wright admitted to removing $80
from the register but denies stealing
$7,000 or the cigarettes, Cpl. Smith
said.
Bond on the burglary and theft
charges vas set at $30,000. Bond
on the warrant charge was set at
$40,003.


County impact fees

New plan

cuts out

gas tax,

school fee
BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor
Heading into their meeting
tonight, county commissioners have
a new gas-tax free impact fee plan to
consider.
Consideration of additional gas tax
to fund transportation infrastructure
died in a workshop last week, when
three of the five commissioners said
they couldn't support raising the tax
by 6 cents.
A plan that called for raising the
gas tax by 3 cents was also discussed,
as was the belief that there would
be no lasting correlation between
raising tax on gas and the local price
per gallon, but public criticism of
the tax increase made its impact on
commissioners.
Instead, commissioners will further
consider an impact fee plan that
bases rates on the number of housing
permits being issued by the building
office.
The growth-centered plan includes
an impact fee for roads in the absence
of a higher gas tax as well as fees
for six other elements: library, law
enforcement, fire service, EMS,
public buildings, and parks and.
recreation.
The plan lowers the fee that
would be paid by those constructing
low-income housing, puts .off the
collection of an impact fee for school
construction and cuts commercial
fees in half.
No residential impact fee would be
collected until the number of housing
permits issued surpasses 300. When
that happens, 33 percent of the total
fee would be collected through the
issuing of 400 permits. Then 67

Public school

students

going

elsewhere
BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor
The ongoing decline in student.
enrollment in Bradford County
appears to be isolated to public
schools. As Superintendent Harry
Hatcher indicated in an interview
last November, there are more and
more alternatives these days when it
comes to a child's education.
A glance at the numbers shows
the students are out there, but their
parents are sending them to other
schools.
Private religious schools continue
to see enrollment climb. The largest
among them, Northside Baptist
Church, reported 51 new students this
year (plus one home-school student),
and 37 of those were transfers from
public schools.
While not all private schools would
provide numbers, those that did each
showed growth, even if not on par
with that at Northside. Hope Baptist
enrolled around 23 new students,
including transfers. Friendship
Christian in Keystone Heights
reported adding 13 new students,
while Community Christian grew by
nearly 40 students, for a total of 215.
Meanwhile, there has been a 12
percent drop in the number of students
enrolled iri Bradford's public schools
since 2001, according to numbers
compiled by the Florida Department
of Education.
In 2000-2001 Bradford's total
number of full-time equivalent,
or FTE, students was. 3,947. That
number went to 3,891, in 2001-2002,

Starke Mayor Carolyn Spooner (right) brought Patricia Gainey to the front of the church
to show off the T-shirt from the county's first service commemorating the life of Dr. Martin
Luther King Jr. 21 years ago. They were joined by other community members at Mt.
Pisgah AME Church to remember King and his contributions to the struggle for equality.

FEES
Continued from p. 1A

percent of the total fee would
be collected until more than
500 permits are issued a year.
Then the residential fees are
collected in total.
The total maximum impact
fee collected for a single-
family detached home would
be $5,743, but only after
annual growth surpasses 500
housing permits. Residents or
developers building new homes
will start off. paying nothing,
then $1,895 after 300 permits
are issued, and $3,848 after 400
permits are issued.
Commissioners have
discussed writing a grace period
into the ordinance that would
apply once a permit threshold
had been reached. Residents
and developers would continue
paying the same amount
during that grace period, and
public notice would be given
that impact fee rates are being
raised at the end of that grace
period.
The newq;. plan .-includes,-
separate fee levels for low-
income, or workforce, housing.
Impact fees for those homes
would be half the amount
regularly charged. To qualify
for' those rates-$948 above
300 permits, $1,924 above 400
permits and $2,872 above 500
permits-the home being built
must be 1,000 square feet in
size or smaller.
Separate fees would also be
set for mobile homes if they
-are being installed in a mobile
home park and for multi-family
housing, which requires a fee
be paid for each dwelling unit
being built. (See chart for
, precise numbers.)
Thedrop in the total maximum
impact fee on new residential
housing from $10,245 to
$5,743 has everything to do
with the elimination-or at least
postponement-of an impact
fee for school infrastructure.
The school impact fee will be
established under a separate

'-. House District 12
Representative Aaron Bean's
staff will meet with constituents
in Middleburg. Starke and
Macclenny on the third


ordinance, and, like the other
fees, its collection will be tied
to growth.
Since the school system,
like the county, could only use
impact fee revenue for projects
related to growth, and student
enrollment has been on the
decline for a period of several
years (see related story), a
schedule will be established to
begin collecting the fee once
the number of students in the
system begins to grow.
That schedule will phase
in the $4,501 'school fee over
a period of time as student
enrollment grows, but specific
benchmarks have yet to be set.
A percentage of the total will be
collected as those benchmarks
in enrollment are reached, just
like the county's plan based on
housing permits.
Believing the study-
recommended impact fees for
commercial development are
too high, the new plan cuts them
in half. So, for example, a new
restaurant would pay $4,292
for every 1,000 square feet of
space constructed instead of
$8,582.
That revenue would primarily
be dedicated to roads, although
a portion would also go to law
enforcement, fire protection,
EMS. and public buildings.
The county commission
wants to workshop this new
plan with the city ofeStarke,
which is pursuing its own
impact fee schedule, to see if
the two boards can agree to a
single, countywide impact fee
plan.
Starke is tentatively set to
workshop its own schedule
again at 4:30 p.m. on Tuesday,
Jan. 23, prior to its next board
meeting.
The city is basing its
three-tier plan for residential
impact fees on square footage.
Recommended fees for new
single-family detached homes
are $5,090 for homes 2,000
square feet and above, $3,173
for homes between 1,001 and
1,999 square feet, and $2,418
for homes up to 1,000 square
feet.

FCAT testing


begins in February



How you can help your

child have a successful

testing experience?
During the dates of testing, plan for a normal and routine
schedule.

Make sure that your child is in school during the testing
sessions. Do not plan any doctor or dental appointments.

Make sure your child attends school
regularly. Remember, tests do reflect
children's overall achievement.

Give plenty of positive encouragement.
If a child is afraid of failing he/she is more
likely to become anxious when taking
tests and more likely to make mistakes.

Make sure your child gets a good
night's sleep.

Make sure your child
,eats breakfast. Fresh fruits
and vegetables are often
recommended to reduce stress.
Stressful foods can include
processed foods, artificial sweeteners,
carbonated soft drinks, chocolate, fried
foods, junk foods, pork, red meat,
sugar, white flour products, chips and
similar snack foods, foods containing
preservatives or heavy spices.

then 3,823, then 3,657, then
3,615 and continued to drop to
3,576 last year (2005-2006).
While DOE had projected
3,563 students enrolled this
year, the actual number fell
short of that. The department
said only 3,511 students are
enrolled in Bradford schools
this year.
Figures also show a large
number of students being
educated in neighboring public
school districts. While Bradford
educated 12 students zoned
for schools in Union County,
Union has 90 of Bradford's
students this year.
There is an even larger
deficit with Clay County, which
sends five students to Bradford
schools, but has 109 Bradford
County students, according
to Public Information Officer
Darlene Mahla.
Hatcher was questioned about
student enrollment and asked
that his response be reprinted in
its entirety. It has been included
as a letter to the editor.
A school-funded impact fee
study recommended $4,501
be collected for every new
single-family home in the
county. Declining enrollment
in Bradford schools, however,
would prevent impact fee
revenue from being used by the
school system to fund growth-
related projects.
For that reason, the county
commission won't consider
collecting an impact fee for
schools until enrollment turns
around. (Sec related story.)

CLOCKWISE FROM TOP: This year's celebration returned to Mt. Pisgah AME
Church where members of the community remembered Dr. Martin Luther King
Jr. in word and in song. Valara Petteway led the service and this song, backed
by members of a community choir. Scriptural readings came from the Rev. Carl
Tyson and Edith Thomas, among others. George Lott and Eli Hamilton performed
an a cappella medley of worship songs, and'Melba Morris led the congregation in
singing "Battle Hymn of the Republic."


KING
Continued from p. 1A
mayor, Janice Mortimer, and
Spooner is now serving her
second term as mayor.
There have been a lot of firsts
in the community since King's
time, according to Spooner, but
she said she still looks forward
to a time when it is not a
novelty for a black member
of the community to hold a
position of leadership.
"We need to stop saying we
shay av~eifrse edam.e and .
say gsaU c" er.conme ,od3,_


because we have. We have come
a very long way, and we're
going to continue to follow that
dream and make that dream
a reality in our community,"
Spooner said.
King isn't alone in the
inspiration his life provides to
those who carry on. The Rev.
Carl Tyson read a passage from
Psalm 139 in praise of God's
omnipotence and power, even
in the darkest of times. Reading
from Proverbs 4, Edith Thomas
emphasized the importance of
consistency of one's walk with
the Lord, the need to follow
Christ's example of discipline
and dedication to purpose.
"We were bought with a


price to live our lives in such a
way that we become the salt of
the earth, the light of the world.
We are to lay down our selfish
and self-centered lifestyles and
gear our lives toward doing
something for the betterment of
somebody else ... If Dr. King
was here today, he would tell us
to stay on the course."
Some spoke of the smaller
turnoutat this year's observance,
but Petteway, who at one point
asked the congregation how
many would have been willing
to stand in King's shoes, made
it clear that as long as there is
breath-in her body, she would
see t6 it that a c r il6re iro i
King's honor'is held:"": ....... -


Other speakers included the
Revs. Edwin Clark and Willie
Lee Felton, and NAACP Vice
President Isaiah Branton.
Special performances included
George Lott of the Starke
Church of God by Faith and
Eli Hamilton of New Hope
Missionary Baptist Church in
an a cappella duet and Melba
Morris, as well as a youth
group from New Bethel Baptist
Church.

Starke manager debate resurfaces


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

The question of whether or
not to move forward in seeking
a city manager for Starke
resurfaced in a public meeting
last week.
Ricky Thompson is currently
performing those duties under
the title of operations manager.
The commission stopped
short of naming him city
manager last year because
the ordinance establishing
that position requires that the
individual holding that title
possess a college degree.
Thompson asked the
commission Jan. 9 about filling
the post of project director--his
former job-and whether or not
that position should continue to
be known as project director or
changed to assistant operations
manager.
Both positions contain the
same job description for an
individual who would be hired
by Thompson to serve alongside
him in a supporting position as
well as fill in for Thompson in
his absence.
Mayor Carolyn Spooner told
Thompson she hadn't dismissed
the idea of hiring a city manager
and asked him how hiring an
individual to serve as project
director or assistant operations
manager would fit in under that
scenario.
Thompson said the individual
hired would possess the college
education required by the
city manager ordinance and
could eventually step into that
position with additional on-
the-job training should the city
decide to hire a city manager in
the future.
The commissioners who
expressed an opinion one way
or another preferred that the


position to be filled remain
titled "project director," and
a vote of the board supported
Thompson in moving forward
with advertising the position,
but conversation didn't'stop
there. During her comment
period, the mayor said she
wanted the board to take another
look at filling the vacant city
manager's position.
Commissioner Wilbur
Waters said she had made that
point more than once, and he
asked what Spooner wanted
the board to do that it hadn't
already done. Spooner said she
wanted a city manager to fill
the city manager's position,
which prompted Waters to
say he was willing to see the
manager ordinance amended to
fit Thompson, allowing him to
carry the title.
"I'm willing to do that and
get this thing settled," Waters,
said.
Spooner said she knew
Waters was in favor of doing
that, but said she wanted the
board to "seriously look 'at
the future of the city" before
changing the ordinance,
"There was a lot that went
into providing for the position,
and there are certain roles and
respQnsibilities that the city
manager has that-where as
Mr. Thompson is doing an
outstanding job, -there's no*
question about that-but you
have city managers throughout
the state, (and) he cannot
function in that role as a city
manager because he's not in
the iole of the city manager,"
Spooner said.
Naming him city manager
would solve that problem,
Waters said.
Commissioner Danny
Nugent asked about waiving
the education requirement for


the position in recognition Of
Thompson's time on the job.
Spooner said the board had
to be careful about changing
the ordinance, which lays
out specific qualifications for
candidates seeking the job,
but Nugent said he simply
wanted to waive the education
requirement.
Attorney Terry Brown said
the board should amend the
ordinance before waiving any'
requirement that would put
the board in the position of
violating its own law. Brown
said the board could amend the
ordinance to provide discretion
in waiving the education
requirement.
Spooner said she didn't
intend for the board to come
to a decision at that meeting,
but Waters insisted the board
needed to put the issue to rest
instead of repeatedly revisiting
the matter.
"Ricky is my city manager,"
Waters said, regardless of his
actual job title,
Spooner proceeded to address
other issues, but under his own
comment'period, Waters moved
to have the attorney draw up an
amendment to the ordinance
giving the board discretion to
waive the education requirement
so Thompson could be named
city manager.
Nugent supported the motion,
and Spooner called the move a
"great mistake to make," but
the other two commissioners,
Tommy Chastain and Travis
Woods, indicated they weren't
ready to vote before the
board workshopped the issue.
Spooner agreed, so the motion
was withdrawn.
Instead, a workshop date was
set for Monday, Jan. 22,.at 6:30
p.m.


Starke may pursue mandatory hookups


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

The Florida Department of
Community Affairs wants the'
city of Starke to charge those
in the city who have failed
to comply with' the city's
mandatory water and sewer
hookup requirement.
The requirement that citizens
hookup to the "ater and sewer
system if lines are run by their
residence or business is decades
old, but has not been enforced.
Starke's attorney, Terry
Brown, said DCA isn't
necessarily looking for the city
to impose monetary penalties.
Those required to hook up tnay-
not see it that way, however,
:since they could be charged
connection fees whether the)
opt to connect or not.
Those fees amount to around
$3,000 for both, water and
sewer connections, according
to Operations Manager Ricky
Thompson. Lines for one'or the
other may not run pass certain
properties, however.
DCA doesn't see this as a
'/ penalty since these are the
connection fees an individual
would have to pay if-they
chose to comply with the la\\.
From DCA's perspective, being
required to pay those: fees
ma\. in fact. induce people to
hookup.
This could become an even
bigger issue for the city as new
sewer lines are run in the third
phase of its sewer rehabilitation


project. While grant funds will
pay to hook up low-income
households, other homeowners'
connection costs will not be
covered in the project.
The section of the city code on
mandatory water connections
requires that properties abutting
a city street be connected to the
water main prior to the street
being paved., If the property
owner neglects to do so, the
city commission can have the
connection made and charge
the property owner, with any
unpaid connection constituting
a lien against the property until
the city is reimbursed.
The section of the city
code on mandatory sewer
connections does not contain
the. same language allowing
the commission to make the
connection at the property
owner's expense, but it does
require all property owners
within 100 feet of a sewer line
to connect to the system within
90 days of being notified by the
city clerk.
The commission chose not
to impose a running fine on
noncompliant property owners,
but may amend the sewer code
to allow\ the city to make sewer
as well as water connections
and charge those owners.
CommissionerDanny Nugent
said there % ere a lot of residents
who, like himself, didn't have
the option of hooking up when
they moved to the city and
invested their money instead
in a. well and septic system.

He said he didn't agree with
charging those residents now
because water and sewer lines
have or will be run near their
homes.
Brown, however, said the
hookups are required by city
ordinance and required if
the city is going to. continue
accepting grant funds to expand
its utility systems.
All agreed people were going
to be upset if the city begins
enforcing mandatory hookups.
"That's why this ordinance
has been on the books since
the 60s or 70s and we haven't
done a whole lot about it-
because of the impact it has on
constituents," Brown said.
Mayor Carolyn Spooner
said the commission needed to
educate the community about
hookup requirements.
Brown said the commission
needs to prepare an ordinance
that will appease DCA and keep
the city from getting written up
in the future.
"Whether we ever elect to'
become-aggressive with the
enforcement of that ordinance,
that's a different issue that we'll
workshop," Brown said.

New board member Smith brings teaching experience to the table


BY TERESA STONE-IRWIN
Telegraph Staff Writer
New District 5 School Board
Member David Smith has
been in Bradford County since
1967.
After graduating from the
University of Florida, he taught
at Bradford High School for
seven years before temporarily
leaving to take a district level
job in Flagler County.
He remained there for
five years and then taught in
Putnam County for one year
and volunteered as an assistant
football coach in Madison
County before returning to the
Bradford school district.
Smith retired from the
district in 1997 and after a brief
sabbatical, returned to work in
Nassau County for two and a
half years.
"After that, I felt it was
time to retire from teaching


completely," said Smith.
Smith's wife, Martha, also
attended the University of
Florida and retired from the
Bradford County school district
two years ago after teachifrg at
Hampton Elementary, the career
center and Starke Elementary
as well as holding a district
staff position.
Smith's brother, Harvey,
is currently an exceptional
student education teacher at
Union County High School in
Lake Butler, where he has been
employed for three years.
Additionally, their father
taught agriculture in Madison
County for several years.
.Smith became a school board
member after former District
5 member, James Watson,
decided not to run again.
"I feel like the Lord looked
out for me there. Mr. Watson
decided not to run again at
pretty much the last minute.


Friends encouraged me to seek
the office which I did without
any opposition.
"With my background and
experience, I feel that I can
maybe improve the strong parts
and strengthen the weaker parts
in the district," said Smith.
Smith said that the fact that
he was named as a Bradford
school board member without
opposition worked out great
for him.
"And I hope to say the
same thing for the students of
Bradford County," said Smith.
What he wants to concentrate
on the most is promoting the
positives in the system. He also
feels it is important to remain
proactive instead of reactive.
"Let's lead instead of
following by identifying any
problems and work towards
solving them before they
possibly get out of hand,"
Smith said.


David Smith


He is pleased at the
Opportunities given to the
students through the Bradford-


Union Career and Technical
Center, SFCC's dual enrollment
program and Florida Virtual
School.
At no cost, the career center
provides students with career
training while they are still
enrolled in school, allowing
them to move on to a higher
paying career straight out of
high school.
According to Smith,
statewide, only about 50 percent
of high school graduates are
continuing their education on
the college level. They are
either going straight to work or
joining the military.
"In Bradford County, the
number is a little bit less than
the state average, but even so,
only half of that number are
able to continue their education
to the bachelor degree level,"
said Smith.
Dual enrollment students
in Bradford County can also


graduate from high school and
already have their associates
degree from SFCC in areas
such as criminal justice and
health care.
Believing that success
breeds success, Smith would
also like to encourage school
administrators in Bradford
County to share student success
stories with the school board.
"Even if its a kindergartener
that made their first ^A' on a
spelling test, I'd love to hear
about it and give them the
acknowledgment they deserve,"
said Smith.
Smith said he continues
to walk through the school
facilities to see and what can
be done to improve the system
in Bradford County.
"I am looking forward to
working with the other school
board members," Smith said.


Creighton visiting county schools, urging greater communication


BY TERESA STONE-IRWIN
Telegraph Staff Writer
Stacey Creighton has been
very busy as Bradford County
School Board's new District 2
member. First on her list, just as
with new school board member
David Smith, was personally
visiting and studying each
school in the county, seeing
what is working and what is not
working, then bringing those
findings to the board meetings.
"When I was campaigning
door to door, it brought to my
attention the concerns of other
parents who have their children
enrolled in Bradford County
schools. As a parent and a
school board member, I take
these issues very seriously, and
I am working with my fellow
board members to bring some
resolution to our schools," said
Creiglhton.
Growing up in Bradford
County, more specifically,
Lawtey, she graduated from
Bradford High School and
later attended the Univeristy
of Florida College of Law,
finishing in the top 15
percentile of her class. Being
a member of the Florida Bar
since 1998, Creighton uses
her educational background to


practice addressing complex
matters which pertaining to
state and federal education
requirements.
She feels blessed to have had
the advantage of growing up
in a small town where parents
and educators worked together.
Additionally, her mother was
a secretary for Bradford High
School for over 27 years before
retiring in 2001.
SSeeing first hand the benefits
of a community pulling
together in order to ensure that
all children receive a quality
education, she has also spent
many hours volunteering in the
schools, and wants to encourage
other parents to do the same.
Creighton, 37, and her
husband, David, a pilot, have
been married for 12 years and
have four children together,
three whom are school-aged and
attending school in Bradford
County.
Combined with her legal
background, she has had
opportunity to see not only
the great things about the area
schools, but also some things
that need to be addressed. She
believes that in order to restore
faith to the county's education
system, administrators must
work together.


out. We are talking about many
great ideas that could benefit
all of the schools across the
county, and communication is
the key," said Creighton.
Creighton took the time to
visit each school's Web site
and said that she found that
Southside Elementary and the
career center sites were the
only ones that were actually
kept updated.
"Those two sites were really
good, but I'm wondering why
the other school Web sites
aren't kept updated. What a
great opportunity it could be
for our digital class students to
do this as part of their grade.
Not only would this be good
experience for the students,


Stacey Creighton
Finding a few things here and
there that could quite possibly
boost moral for both students
and educators, Creighton said
that the thing she finds the
most troublesome is the lack
of communication between the
schools in the county.
"One school may institute a
great program that is successful,
but if they don't effectively tell
the other school administrators
about it, then our children lose

but it would allow an entire
Internet audience to see their
work," Creighton said.
One exciting thing she
currently has going on is
training through the Florida
Bar Association for Justice
Teaching, an initiative of
Florida Supreme Court Chief
Justice R. Fred Lewis. The
goal of the program is to pair
either a judge, lawyer or other
law-related professional with
every school in the state of
Florida, to provide a program
that compliments what students
are already learning.
In 2006, a survey conducted
by the Florida Bar showed that
only 59 percent of Florida's
adults could name the three


branches of government, and
then less than that knew the
meaning of "separation of
power." ,'
Creighton volunteered to
attend the required training
and will soon have the chance
to increase the understanding
among Bradford County
students regarding the legal
system in the United States.
"Using scenarios and open
forums that students can relate
to, this program will put our
Constitution and the Bill of
Rights into perspective,
giving them something they
can remember for a lifetime,"
Creighton said.

Don't miss the boat
Build on high ground
Two heads are better than one
If you can't fight or flee-float!
For safety's sake, travel in pairs
Stay below deck during the storm
Don't forget that we're all in the same boat.
Don't listen to critics-do what has to be done
If you have to start over, have a friend by your side
Plan ahead ... It wasn't raining when Noah built the ark
Take care of your animals as if they were the last ones on earth
When things get really deep, don't sit there and complain-shovel!
Remember the woodpeckers. An inside threat is often bigger than the one outside

Williams was required to
write an essay on the topic, "If.
you could hold any position of
leadership, which one would
you choose?"
He chose the position of
governor of Florida. "In order
to be able to reach a lot of
people, I would need a position

greatest number of people,"
Williams said.

A sad commentary


A new facility is being established
in Bradford County to provide
counseling to women with unwanted
pregnancies. A satellite of the Women's
Resource Center in Gainesville, it will
be opening soon in a rather obscure
building to allow patients to go and
_come without undue attention.
The statistics concerning unwanted
pregnancies are disturbing, and the
community is poorer for what is
revealed:
Unwed mothers give birth to 44
percent of all babies born in Bradford
County.
For every 1,000 15-19-year-old
females in Bradford County there are
61 births; the state average is 43.
For every 1,000 10-18-year-old
females in Bradford County there are
19 births; the state average is 15.
By age 20, 75 percent of women
in our nation have had sexual
intercourse.
U.S. teenagers are more likely to
have sexual intercourse before age
15 than teenagers in other developed
countries.
U.S. teenagers are more likely to
have more than one sexual partner in
a year.
Sixty-seven percent of all sexually
transmitted diseases occur in people
under the age of 25.
Each year 15 million new people
are infected with an STD, and 25
percent of these people are 15-19
years old.
Since Roe vs. Wade there have
been 46 million abortions in our
nation. In 2005, there were 92,513
abortions in Florida.
These figures cross all socio-
economic and racial lines and don't
Spoqfit~ g, at 4nyone,,since families
'from all Walks of life are affected
by the activities of youth. And while
females bear the brunt of out-of-
wedlock births, there is a male going
free, perhaps even bragging about his
part in the life-altering situation.

County health officers, elected
officials, ministers and social
workers are mystified by county
numbers exceeding the average.
These community leaders do not see
Bradford County as below average in
family incomes, nor is there a lack of
churches in the county. While church
membership or attendance doesn't
guarantee non-participation in sexual
activities by youth, it is believed to
be a deterrent. Bradford County has
an enviable school system, providing
academic and vocational education
without leaving home.
There was a time when having a
baby out of wedlock was a shocking
situation and families took measures
to deny or hide the pregnancy.
Sometimes the young female would
be sent away to a relative or a facility,
and when the girl returned home
she would be trim and slim, and
no one ever questioned the reason
for her absence. In other situations,
the baby's grandmother would claim
the child as her own, saying the
baby's real mother was an older sister,
and the newborn was the result of a
late-in-life pregnancy. Perhaps most
neighbors knew of the subterfuge and
supported the claim.
The Women's Resource Center of
Bradford County is being established
here because it is centrally located
to serve Bradford, Union and Clay
counties. The Gainesville facility has
served thousands of women, but only
served 59 clients from Hawthorne and
103 from Starke, Keystone Heights,
Melrose and surrounding areas,
so where are the would-be clients
going?
The building is blue, attached
to a.larger blue building at 766 N.
Thompson St. in .a .residential area
with little traffic.
The WRC does not receive any
government funding.

proposals
from the
Legislature...
Dear Editor:
Upon looking over the
House and Senate plans to help
lower insurance premiums in
the state, I would like to offer
some constructive criticism. I
believe that most of the plans
set forth by the House and the
Senate are in line with what
the voters of the state would
like to see. However,
compromise cannot be taken -to
such a high degree when it
comes to how the Legislature
treats-the-private sector.
I am referring to the House
plan to make the private sector
offer only the types of
insurance that the state wants
them to offer.
In addition to the current
House and Senate proposals I
propose the following three
ideas to the Legislature:
1) Take the angle of
prevention: Since we have no
control over the weather and its
conditions, maybe our focus
should be on protecting the
well-being of our properties
and doing everything possible
to make sure all citizens in
higher liability areas are as
protected as possible from
severe damage. Therefore, the
state should legislate and/or
subsidize protection measures
such as stronger building
codes, wind shutters, and any
other protection from hurricane
damage.
2) Double insurance: I'm
not sure if this is even
possible, but could the state set
a ceiling on how much of a
premium insurance companies
charge, then offset the increases
by backing the rest of the risk
with Citizens or the CAT
fund? (Much like the SBA will
back a loan given to a small
business owner through a
private bank.)
3) Focus on the long-term
solution: I understand that our
governor has made some
campaign promises to lower
property insurance, but our
lawmakers need to make sure
that what they 'legislate does
not come from the emotion of
being able to bully the private
sector, but compromising for
the long-term. (A short-term
answer is not the solution.)


NEVER GIVE UP
NEVER BACK DOWN
NEVER LOSE FAITH


HE EDITOR


My concern is that if we take
the strong-arm approach then
we will force insurance
companies to leave the state,
thus leaving us with Citizens
Insurance, a state-run
institution. This then sets us
up for a form of socialism
within the state of Florida. I
would not like to see that
happen, so our legislators this
week need to think long-term,
not just week-long special
session.
Again, as a home owner and
a business owner I understand
the dilemma on both sides, but
I do not believe government
should be "strong-arming" the
private sector into doing what
it wants unless the private
sector is creating an unfair
situation. At this time, both
the insurance companies and
the citizens of Florida have
been put in an unfair
predicament. So let's work to
bring a balanced proposal to
the table.

Why students
leave BC
public schools
Dear Editor:
I am writing you in response
to your question about students
leavingBradford County public
schools. I will try to be
concise in my answer but I
would also request you print
my answer in its entirety. First
of all, it is true that Bradford
County is in a state of
"declining enrollment."
We have steadily lost
enrollment since 2000. There
have been many factors in the
shortfall and I will attempt to
discuss a few of these areas.
First, I want this
information to be portrayed as
informational and not in an
"excuse giving" mode.
Education has evolved recently
to providing more options for
parents to provide our children
with the best possible
education.
This comes through McKay
Scholarships, Charter schools,
home education, Florida virtual
schools, private schools (many
which are faith-based.)
Bradford County currently is
in direct competition within its
neighboring counties,
particularly Union and Clay.


Clay County is currently one
of the most highly rated
districts in the state, so
naturally we are constantly
compared to them 'and
rightfully so.
Curriculum and the process
of how we deliver, instruction
is critical. We are rapidly
moving forward in that area in
Bradford County (we got
behind) and that's never good
but we are strategically and
with much effort moving
forward.
The single most important
factor in the success of a
school is not the physical
structure or what county it's
located in or how curriculum is
developed, but it is that
individual classroom teacher.
That is where instruction is
delivered. (My point is that) we
have an outstanding staff her
in Bradford County the
matches with any other county.
They are dedicated and work
diligently and have our
student's best interests at heart.
No, we're not perfect, but are
striving to give our children
and our county what we deserve
a top-notch education.
Another particular issue in
Bradford County is that for the
most part we are a faith-based
county. With that many
parents would like prayer and
scriptures read daily as part of
their child's education process.
So this is another challenge.
There are also cultural and
diversity issues that some
parents feel are dealt with
differently in other systems or
districts. Remember we are the
public school system and we
take all children, regardless of
background intellect or
physical limitations.
In conclusion, our reading
score and overall grades of our
school system are on the rise.
The state and federal
government constantly raises
the bar, and we embrace that
challenge.
We have good leadership
teams in place at our schools
and diligently try to provide
them all the tools necessary for
Bradford County to become an
elite school district in the state.
Our school board is committed
to this process and are great
partners in our endeavors.
I would like to see the day
when there wouldn't be a
consideration,.to,lea 'e Bradford
County. but only thoughts

Be aware of
radon during
Radon Action
Month
January is National Radon
Action Month. Radon is a
naturally- occurring gas that
enters .-structures from the
surrounding soil. You can't see
it, smell it, or taste it.
Depending on the amount of
radon found in your home you
may be at risk for health
problems. Radon is the second
leading cause for lung cancer in
the United States, second only
to tobacco smoking.
Overabundance of radon gas in
Florida homes isn't a huge
problem according to all of the
statistics but it's better to be
safe than sorry!
Radon is formed from the
natural radioactive decay of
uranium in rock, soil and water.


and Needle in Lake Butler
where he assisted owner Keith
Kirby in remodeling the store
and making custom T-shirts.
He also spent time working at
Union County High School's
agriculture farm along with his
older brother, Caleb.


Naturally existing, low levels
or uranium occur widely in the
Earth's crust. It can be found in
all 50 states and once produced
moves through the ground to
the air above and on to
dissolve in water that collects
and flows under the earth's
surface.
But it isn't this that makes
radon radioactive. Radon
undergoes transformation about
every four days and when this
happens it is then that
radioactive particles are
released. These particles can get
trapped in your lungs when
you breathe and continue to
break down further and release
more radiation. This can
damage lung tissue and lead to
lung cancer over the course of
your lifetime.
Not everyone exposed to
elevated levels of radon will
develop lung cancer, and the
amount 'of time between
exposure and the onset of
disease may be many years.
However, this should not stop
you from doing what you can
now to ensure that you and
your family are not at risk.
In the United States, nearly
one out of every 15 homes has


So far this school year,

the parliamentary procedure
team and is on both the ag
mechanics team and food
science team that will hold
competitions later this year. He
is an Awana volunteer through


a radon level that the
Environmental Protection
Agency (EPA) considers to be
elevated and is putting the
home's residents at risk for
health problems. This figure
does not include the numbers
of homes that have levels of
radon that are not considered
elevated but where radon is
nonetheless still present. Most
people spend as much as 90
percent of their time indoors,
which makes the amount of
exposure alarming. The only
sure way to determine the level
of radon in your home is to
test.
A wide range of test kits for
radon are available. Radon test
kits should cost between $15
and $25, depending on the type
of kit. This price should
include laboratory analysis
which includes a report that
will be mailed to you after you
have sent the kit back to the
company for processing.
SThere are two types of test
kits for in-home radon testing.
Short-term tests offer a quick
and inexpensive way to
"screen" for radon in your
home. Short-term tests do not
measure the annual average of
radon.' They are typically left in

He has continued playing
football through his junior
varsity years at Union County
High School and is in his
second year of competition on
the school's weightlifting
team.
Topping all of that off by
maintaining a 3.5 GPA,
Williams appears to be well
deserving of the HOBY Youth
Leadership Award.
Receiving brochures and
information packets from
Hugh O'Brian Youth
Leadership on a regular basis,
he is kept informed of
activities which he can choose
to participate in during the
event.
One activity Williams is
looking forward to is
participating as a lawyer in a
mock trial. However, the one
activity he said that sounds
like the most fun is a session
known as "battlefield tactics,"
where he'll get to participate
in paintball wars with other
students.
Mom Lori Williams stated
that she and her husband, Tom,
continue to be very. proud of
their son and his


place from two to seven days.
Be sure to follow the
instructions with the test kit
for accurate results. Test kits
can be found at most larger
retail stores and can also be
ordered from Web sites online.
Using a test kit to find out
"where your home stands may
be quite comforting. In a
country where there are so
many other health problems, it
is important to do what we can
to reduce the risk to which we
expose ourselves.
Remember to take action this
month and find out just where
your home stands with radon.

Bradford Explorers earn

awards at delegate meeting


BY ARNIE HARRIS
Monitor Staff Writer
Those fortunate enough to bc
at the Melrose Public Library on
the evening of Jan.4 were
treated to a one-man show by
actor and playwright J.D Sutton
as 18th century naturalist
William Bartram. The show was
presented by the Melrose
Library Association and the
Florida Humanities Council.
Bartram, who was born in
1739 near Philadelphia,
achieved fame as America's first
native born naturalist and artist.
He was also the country's first
author to portray nature through
personal experience, as well as"
scientific observation.
During his lifetime he
explored eight Southeastern
states which were still in pristine
condition before civilization
made its impact.
Actor Sutton's focus in this
production (which he also
wrote) was on Bartram's
observations and reflections
about Florida in the years just
before the Revolutionary War.
Sutton charmingly portrayed
Bartram as a passionate and
enthusiastic eccentric who
spoke eloquently and with
reverence of the plant and
animal life he encountered,
reflecting on their physical and
scientific aspects, and on their
place in the creator's grand
design.
Sutton entertained the
audience of several dozen
people with Bartram's amusing
recounting of what were
essentially harrowing
experiences, including a
meeting with a Seminole
warrior whom he feared meant
to kill him, but extended his
hand in friendship instead. The
Seminole dubbed Bartram "Puc
Puggy", meaning "Flower
Hunter".
Especially compelling-and
an interesting look into both the
splendor and savagery of nature-
- was his tale of scores-of
alligators devouring fish in a
feeding frenzy in St. Johns River
and his own narrow escape from
being snatched' by one of the
"monsters of the river".
- Especially poignant was his


-" .e f


Actor J.D. Sutton portrayed America's first naturalist,
William Bartram, at the Melrose Public Library


account of a bear being shot by a
hunter, who then, to Bartrams'
further distress, killed one of the
bear's cubs who had climbed
atop his dead parent in anguish.
This led him to reflect that
animals are far more than just
creatures driven by instinct, but
have emotions and souls.
Years after his exploits, in
1791 Bartram published his
book, "William's Travels",
which became an immediate
success in Europe and was an
influence on the Romantic
Poets, Keats, Byron and Shelley.
Sutton, like his subject, also
happened to have been born and
raised in Philadelphia.
He has appeared, in numerous
legitimate theater productions
and several TV shows.
Another one-man show he
wrote and starred in off-
Broadway was "Twilight at


Monticello: An Evening with
Thomas Jefferson".
Asked how he developed
Bartram's character for the
stage, Sutton said that he had
had conversations with
Bartram's descendants, and
what came across from them is
that same exuberance and child-
like wonder that reportedly
characterized their illustrious
ancestor.
At the end of his hour-long
performance, Sutton as Bartram,
modestly apologizes to the
audience for his far from
"tedious" story-telling, and
invites them all to his garden
near Philadelphia, begun by his
famous botanist father, John
Bartram, and which William
tended for the last thirty years of
his life. It was there, too, that
he died at 84 years of age in
1823.

5 Keystone volleyball players

recognized by Gainesville Sun


Golfers from
Bradford, Union are
also recognized

BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
Mallory Wasik and Kim
Russell were each Class A-3A
first-team selections to the
Gainesville Sun's all-area
volleyball team, which also
honored three other Keystone
Heights players.
Wasik, who was also a
second-team Class 3A all-state
selection, recorded a school-
record 407 kills this past
season as a senior outside
hitter. She also had' 225 digs,
62 service aces and 13 blocks.
She finished her career with
1,065 total kills, which is a
school record, and also set
single-season records for kills
per game (4.33), kills in a
game (27) and attempts in a
game (75).


Wasik accepted a
scholarship offer from Lander
University in Greenwood, S.C.
Joining Wasik on the Sun's
first team was Russell, a junior
setter, who had 374 assists,
127 digs, 78 kills and 12
blocks.
Senior libero Michelle
Houser was a second-team
selection. She had 377 digs
and 618 of the team's 1,241
serve receptions. She also had
35 service aces.
Houser and Russell both
received all-state honorable
mention.
Receiving honorable
mention from the Gainesville
Sun were senior setter Lori
Albritton and junior outside
hitter Katie Taylor.
Bradford and Union County
failed to have any players
selected because their coaches
did not respond to requests by
the Gainesville Sun for
nominations.


2 area athletes
recognized in golf
Bradford High School junior
Heather Alvarez and Union
County senior Devin Osborne
were second-team selections
on the Gainesville Sun's all-
area girls and boys golf teams.
Alvarez recorded a score of
96 at the District 4-A
tournament to qualify for the
Region 2 tournament. It was
her second straight regional
berth.
Osborne helped guide the
Tigers to one of their best
.seasons in recent history. The
team finished 17-4 during the
regular season, with Osborne
being the low scorer in every
one of those matches but two.
In the District 4-A
tournament, Osborne had a
score of 84, qualifying him for
the Region 2 tournament. His
season came to an end there,
where he had a score of 86.

Camp Blanding's RTI will


get more of a campus feel


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
Students who go off to
college and live in dormitories
are not expecting their
bedroom to be one large room
that sleeps approximately 30
other students. Nor do they
expect to, if the urge strikes,
get up in the middle of the
night and have to walk outside
to another building if they
need to use the restroom.
No, that does not sound like
a typical campus setting,
which is why members of the
211th Regiment (Regional
Training Institute) at Camp
Blanding are excited about a
$60-million-plus construction


project that will result in a
more proper campus setting for
those-who undergo training
there.
"It's going to be'a lot more
conducive to training than the
facility we have now," said
Sgt. 1" Class Robert Dodd,
senior operations NCO. "You
can train soldiers almost
anywhere, but it's going to be
actually like a real school
campus. We're going to have
all the .latest and greatest
equipment there.
"To me, when you're
sending a soldier back out
there to do his job, it's your
job to do the-best you can to
give -him all the support you
can give him. I think here,


we're going to be able to do
that."
The new RTI facility, which
is scheduled for completion in
2009, will encompass more
than 280,000 square feet.
Unlike the current RTI facility,
the new one will be composed
of billeting quarters made up
of rooms that sleep two
students each.
"This will be a lot better
than 36 guys packed into one
small room," Dodd said,
referring to the current
facility's .sleeping
arrangements.


Dodd notes that

See RTI,


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
When you've been away
from home for a while, it can
take some time to become
accustomed again to what were
once familiar surroundings.
Paula Nobles, for example, had
to get used to the fact that she
did not have to carry a gun
with her to church, the grocery
store or anywhere else.
Nobles was gone from her
Theressa home for
approximately a year, serving
in Iraq as a member of the 3
Medical Command. She
returned home for a brief time
before going back to Iraq, but
she made the most of that time,
which included a trip to
Indiana to see her family for
Christmas.
"I've had a wonderful 15
days here," Nobles said from
her home on Jan. 5. "There's
nothing like your home, your
bed and your family."
Now, Nobles is currently
having to.tote a gun with her
everywhere as she goes about
her duties. She also has to don
a flak jacket and wear a steel
helmet when she goes outside,
even though she works in an
area that is approximately 95-
percent secure in terms of
safety, she said.


Her husband, John Fraley,
said the reason for that is the
prevalence of guns in Iraq. Just
about everyone has one, and
they have a tendency to shoot
them into the air during
demonstrations and
celebrations.
"Even where they are, .they
can't go outside of their
trailers without wearing their
steel helmets and their flak
jackets because these bullets
will go up in the air and come
down," Fraley said.
"Occasionally, they'll get
RPGs or rockets lobbed inside
their compound."
That can be worrisome for
someone whose husband or
wife is in that situation, and
Fraley did admit it's tough, but
he also understands Nobles'
job and what she has to do. He
is retired from the Navy and
understands deployments and
duties to service.
"He's my biggest
supporter," Nobles said. "I
think it helps to have a military
spouse."
As for Nobles, she does not
worry about what could
possibly happen to her while in
Iraq. That comes about as a
result of her faith. As she put
it, she knows she'll be in
heaven if she should never
wake up.


"I don't worry about fear,"
she said.
Nobles just concentrates on
the task at hand.

Brief service turns
out to be not.so brief
Nobles' military career
began when she joined the
Navy in 1976. She did so, she
said, for the thrill of being able
to travel.
"I just joined for one tour,
but somehow you just keep
going," she said. "Then, when
you reach.your 10-year mark,
you feel like you've gotten
halfway, so you just stay there
until you get your 20."
She was in the Navy for four
years as a corpsman, served in
the Navy reserve and attended
Indiana University on the GI
Bill. She then joined the
Indiana National Guard and
has been in the Army reserve
ever since.
Currently, Nobles is a
lieutenant colonel with the 3rd
Medical Command, which is
responsible for all the medical
units in Iraq, she said.
Her first command in Iraq
was with the 738th Area
Support Medical Company, an
Indiana National Guard unit.

will also have a place to work
after hours as each room also
includes a desk along with
Internet access.
"We have classes that go 30
or 45 days sometimes," Dodd
said. "If you're away from
home, it's nice to be able to e-
mail back and forth."
Billeting quarters will also
include laundry facilities (they
make up a separate building at
the current RTI) and indoor
plumbing. Today's students
have to walk to separate latrine
facilities.
"It's just things like that that
will make their lives a lot
better," Dodd said. "I think the
atmosphere for learning is
going to be a lot better.
Generally, if you're
comfortable with where you're
sleeping and other things, your
mind's off other stuff, and I
think you can learn better,
absorb more and take more
in."
Students and instructors both
will have larger classrooms at
their disposal. Currently, RTI
classrooms are small rooms
(approximately 20'x17') that
can 'become quite cramped
when 16 students with all their
gear step inside (there are a
couple of larger rooms that
were made possible by
removing a couple of walls).
Instructors find themselves
having to take larger groups
outside, which can be a
problem in the case of
inclement weather, Dodd said.
The new facility will have
classrooms that can be as large
as 30'x60', with dividers
making it possible to break
those larger rooms up into
smaller ones.
Computer stations will be
installed at each of the desks in
the--new rooms, which the
current RTI classrooms donT't
have (the current RTI does

Phase 1 of the Regional Training Institute construction

anticipated the entire project, which will cost more than
$60 million, will be complete in 2009.

Instructors will benefit from
the fact that they will now
have a work area to utilize
between classes. Four offices
and 18 cubicles will be at their
disposal.
There is no such space at the
current facility.
"(Instructors) have to go sit
out in their car with a laptop

Dodd said. "Nobody has their

allow the state of Florida to

states. As well as a training
center, the JOCTF will be able
to be utilized by the state in
times of emergency in case
something should happen in
Tallahassee.
"It will have the same setup
that basically you have in
Tallahassee or that any other
state would have in their
EOC," Dodd said. "Everything
will be accessible there."
The RTI at Camp Blanding
can trace its roots to 1962
when the Florida National
Guard Military Academy
opened. However, all of the
buildings utilized by the RTI
date back to the World War II


era.
"We do the best we can with
the buildings we have," Dodd
said. "They're clean, but
they're still (from) World War
II. They scrub them down
when they leave for the next
class, but as soon as you close
the door, there's a cloud of
dust that comes out of the
ceiling and falls."
The RTI is responsible for
providing training in combat
arms, leadership and military
occupational specialty, as well
as offering the
noncommissioned officer
education system. Students
from throughout the country
have passed through the RTI at
Camp Blanding.
Recently, the First Battalion,

as land navigation, mine

"It was excellent (training),"
said Staff Sgt. Robin Byrd, one
of the RTI instructors. "I think
the people of Arizona have a
National Guard they can be
proud of. It's one of the better
groups I've seen."
The fact that the unit was
able to train at Camp Blanding
in December is one of the
advantages the RTI there has
over other such sites.
"Nobody wants to go to
North Dakota in December,
which makes it more optimal
for us to put on courses all
winter long," Dodd said.
Another plus is Camp
Blanding itself, Dodd said. He
said many other RTIs are
located on smaller pieces of
land, with ranges, for example,
located at another site.
"We have everything located
here, pretty much, in one
place," Dodd said.
Several of the Arizona
Guardsmen had high praise for
Camp Blanding and the
training they received there.
Dodd can only imagine the
comments from future RTI
students once the new facility
is completed. He can't wait.
He said he visits the
construction site at least once a
week and walks through the
buildings that are already
erect.
"It will be a beautiful facility
when it's done," Dodd said.

Continued from p. 1C

"I felt it quite a privilege to
serve with those folks since I
grew up in the state of
Indiana," Nobles said.
She worked with combat
stress daily, working with
soldiers who were trying to
deal with the violence they
were witnessing, which
sometimes included the death
of a buddy. She would help
give classes on stress
management as well as anger
management.
"A lot of soldiers get very
angry at the other side if they
lose a friend or a soldier,"
Nobles said.
As a member of the 3rd
Medical Command, Nobles
said she makes staff assistant
visits to other medical groups,
still dealing with the issue of
combat stress.
Nobles said many soldiers
are under stress because of
their youth.
"I call them kids," Nobles
said. "They're right out of high
school. They've seen some
things kids their age never see.
I'm sure they're going to grow
up quick."
The "restoration center" is
set up as a place where soldiers
can participate in the
aforementioned stress and
anger management classes, or
,simply as a place where a bed
is available to them.


"We give them like three
days to just chill out away
from what's been going on,"
Nobles said.
As for dealing with her own
stress, Nobles said she relies
on going to church on
Sunday. Also, she and her
medical colleagues debrief
each other.
"Another thing-you find a
buddy, and you just talk and
talk and talk with your buddy,"
she said.
Fraley, too, has a "buddy,"
who has helped him during the
time Nobles is away from
home.
"One of the ladies at my
church has a husband who's
deployed to Afghanistan,"
Fraley said. "She has had some
of the same experiences that
I've had."
It also helps that Fraley and
Nobles can communicate with
each other. The couple has a
prearranged time during which
Fraley will call her on a cell
phone. They also correspond
via e-mail.
"When I was in the Navy,
the spouses could not
communicate with their
husbands or wives who were
deployed," Fraley said.

Internet access has allowed
Nobles to do other things that
were not possible when Fraley
served. She can keep tabs on
her bank accounts, for
example, or complete business
transactions.


"She has been able to buy
and sell horses for our home in
Indiana (while in Iraq)," Fraley
said.

Working in Saddam
Hussein's shadow
The area that Nobles works
in is referred to as "the wire."
It is an area composed of
Saddam Hussein's palaces and
surrounded by a wall that
Hussein had built to keep the
common people out, Nobles
said.
The palaces are an example
of how much money Hussein
spent on himself, Fraley said.
Hussein even utilized gold to
make his toilets.
"The common guy was
happy to see him go, I think,
because they've got a chance
now," Fraley said.
Nobles said the majority of
Iraqis are glad that Hussein is
gone, and she also feels the
majority of Iraqis are glad the
U.S, has a presence there.
Nobles has the chance to
interact with the Iraqi people
since the medical companies
provide them with medical
care as well as tending to the
needs of the U.S. servicemen.
"To me, it's like being a
missionary," Nobles said. "It's
like the most complete thing I
could ever have done over
there. I feel like I've
contributed just a little bit of
something to those people's
welfare and health."
The Iraqis get more than
medical care. Nobles recalled
one incident when a woman,
through an interpreter, asked
Nobles if she could bring her
some toothpaste because she
was afraid of being shot if she
ventured into the market place.
"That just kind of hit me
hard," Nobles said. "I thought,
'Gee, in this country, we just
walk into a supermarket and
buy shampoo without fear that
anybody's going to shoot us.'"
Nobles, because of that, has
made it a point to collect extra
items people have sent her to
distribute among the Iraqis.

"We take these boxes of
goodies every time we go (to
the clinic)," Nobles said. "The
interpreters hand out little bags
to each of the families. Some
nice little goodies-shampoos,
soaps, stuff like that."

Tigers lose to Crescent City,


fall to second in district

BY CLIFF SMELLEY '
Telegraph Staff Writer A M-


Shooting woes for the host
team and a solid performance
at the foul line for the visitors
contributed to the Union
County boys basketball team's
60-53 loss to Crescent City on
Jan. 12 in Lake Butler.
The win kept Crescent City
atop the District 6-3A
standings (the Raiders are tied
with Interlachen with just one
loss in district play), while the
Tigers slipped to second place
with a 4-2. It was the second
straight district loss for the
Tigers.
The teams were tied at the
half, but the Tigers got off to a
good start in the second half
when Justin Griffin drained a
3-pointer. However, Union
would go on to miss 13 of its
next 14 field goal attempts.
Crescent City, which
grabbed 14 rebounds in the
quarter, built a nine-point lead.
Clyde Barringer opened the
fourth quarter with a 3-pointer
for the Tigers, but their
struggles continued as they
missed seven straight 'field
goal attempts after that.
The Raiders went up by 10
with less than three minutes
remaining when Andre Topey
was all by himself underneath
the basket for an easy score.
Union tried to rally. A
rebound score by Jaquan
Simmons and two free throws
by Frankie Caldwell made it a
seven-point game. A free
throw and a basket by Griffin
later made it a five-point game.
However, the Raiders made
7-of-8 free throws after that to
maintain their led.
Overall, Crescent City made
18-of-25 free throws, including
going 14-of-19,in the final five
minutes.
Conversely, the Tigers were
just 10-df-27 at the foul line.
Griffin, who made 5-of-7
free throws, led Union with 15
points, while Ted Young made
5-of-8-free throws and finished
with 14 points.
Caldwell, who had eight
points in the first quarter,

Support from the
home front
No matter what a person's
feeling are concerning U.S.
involvement in Iraq, there
seems to be one thing the
majority of the country is in
agreement upon-support for
our servicemen.
Nobles remembered an
incident at the airport in
Atlanta when she and other
service personnel were
preparing to board a plane. The
crowd at the airport, which
was informed that she and the
others were troops returning to
Iraq, stood up and clapped for
the group.
"It's amazing," Nobles said.
"It's just the proudest feeling.
You think to yourself,
'They're clapping for me?' It's
hard to swallow."
Fraley thinks back to the
time when he was a physician
on active duty during the
Vietnam War. His chief of
medicine told him he was
authorized to attend medical
meetings out of uniform
because people would spit at
soldiers or throw rocks at
them.
Now, Nobles and others
overseas are receiving care
packages from people they
don't even know.
"The mood of the country is
so much different (today),"
Fraley said.
SNobles has become
somewhat of a distributor,
passing out items to other
people. In fact, a woman
involved with Opeation Quiet
Comfort-which supports
wounded soldiers and the
medical personnel who care
for them-wanted to express
her thanks to Nobles for acting
as a contact point for the
organization. When she asked
Nobles what was something
special she could do for her
during the holidays, Nobles
replied that she wanted her to
do something for Fraley.
The woman asked Nobles to
send her a photo of her and
Fraley. That photo was
incorporated into two
pillows-one of which was
sent to Nobles, while the other
was sent to Fraley.
Fraley had no idea what he
had received in the mail until
reading the letter that
accompanied the pillow. The
letter expressed gratitude for
Nobles' assistance and thanked
,Fraley fo; "sharing Pay,;l..lh ,i.
the worlT' '
Another, pat: of the letter
read, "I hope these huggy
pillows bring comfort to each
of you during this difficult
time."I
"He was touched by that,"
Nobles said.
Now Nobles is back with her

BHS girls

hold off Santa

Fe in OT
BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
Tosha Griffin made two free
throws with three seconds left
in overtime, sealing a 59-56
win for the Bradford girls
basketball team over visiting
Santa Fe on Jan. 11.
The win gave the Tornadoes
a 9-0 record in District 2-4A
prior to this past Tuesday's
game against district opponent
Suwannee. Bradford (15-1
overall) will be the number-
one seed in the district
tournament, which will be
played later this month at
Santa Fe.
Santa Fe, which beat the
Tornadoes twice last year en


route to winning the district,
had a chance in last week's
game after leading scorer Zee
Patterson was. fouled by
Bradford late in the fourth
quarter. Patterson made her
first free-throw attempt,
leaving the Raiders trailing by
two. She then missed the
second free ttrow on purpose,
grabbed the long rebound and
scored as time ran out to force
overtime.
Each team made two field
goals in overtime, but the
difference was Bradford made
all three of its free-throw
attempts, while Santa Fe was
1-of-2.
Overall, the Tornadoes were
7-of-9 from the foul line, with
Khalaa Hill making all four of
her attempts.
Hill led the Tornadoes with
14 points, while Griffin and
Demetria Slocum had 13 and
12, respectively. Ebony Smith
added nine points and Keita
Goodman had eight.
Defensively, Jerica Warren
played a "great" game,
according to head coach Shane
McFadyen. She blocked nine
shots. .
"She was a monster on the
defensive end," McFadyen
said.
Bradford had to pick up its
defensive intensity after the
first quarter. Patterson scored
10 points for the Raiders as
they built a 22-14 lead.
The Tornadoes rallied,
making it a one-point game at
the half. They then outscored
Santa Fe 16-13 in the third
quarter and pretty much
controlled the half until Santa
Fe hit some shots late,
McFadyen said.
"It was a good back-and-
forth game," he said.
Bradford will host Keystone
Heights tonight, Jan. 18, then
host Fleming Island on
Monday, Jan. 22.
The Tornadoes close out the
regular season on Wednesday,
Jan. 24, against Eastside in

JV team

winning easily

for Bradford

BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
A two-point loss is all that
stands between the Bradford
boys junior varsity basketball
team and a perfect season
through the first half of its
schedule.
Bradford, which was 10-1
prior 'to its Jan. 12 game
against Suwannee, lost to
Hamilton County back on Dec.
1, but the Tornadoes have had
little trouble with the other
teams they've played.
Seven of the team's -wins
have been by double digits,
and the Tornadoes' average
margin of victory is 19 points.
Ini the loss' -to Hamilton
County, Bradford erased a 22-
point deficit. The Tornadoes
tied the game with a minute
remaining, but Hamilton
banked in a shot at the buzzer
to win 57-55.
Bradford will try to avenge
that loss when it hosts
Hamilton on Tuesday, Jan. 23,
at 6 p.m.
Bradford head coach Keith
Ladd said the success
experienced this year has been
a total team .effort. He
mentioned some players such
as David Shealy, who was
averaging 15 points per game
prior to injuring his back,
Danerrius Sheffield, who has
been a good 3-point shooter,
Terrence Davis, who has
started at the point all season,
and Pedro Jonas, who has
come in off the bench and
played well the last couple of
games.
However, Ladd said he
really couldn't credit '
Bradford's success to just a
few players.
"We've probably had about
nine different starters," he said.
"It's a good team effort, and


they play well together."
Last week, the Tornadoes
defeated Ridgeview 73-52 on
Jan. 9 and Newberry 42-33 on
Jan. 11.
Four players scored in
double figures against
Ridgeview: Markael Moore
(25 points), Jonas (15), Davis
(13) and Sheffield (10).
Against Newberry, C.J.
Covington scored 11 points,
Moore scored 10 and Jonas
scored eight.
The remainder of the team's
wins are: Keystone Heights
(64-34), Ridgeview (52-45),
Suwannee (59-34), Santa Fe
(66-58), Union County (56-
37), Middleburg (69-47),
Interlachen (48-38) and Baker
County (61-23).
The rest of the team is
composed of Isaiah Jenkins,
Charles- Jones, Shanon Kiser,
Malcolm Moore and Martella
Moore.
After. its rematch with
Hamilton County on Jan. 23,
the Tornadoes will host
Newberry on Jan. 24, host
Middleburg on Jan. 25, host
Union County on Jan. 27, host
Interlachen on Feb. 1 and
travel to play Keystone on Feb.
2,
All games are scheduled for
6 p.m.

A SURPRISE PITCH!


You may be aware that you
can avoid capital gains taxes
on the sale of your home if it
was your primary residence for
at least two of the five years
prior to its sale. Individuals
may qualify for a $250K tax
exemption, and married cou-
ples up to $500K.
But life is funny, and some-
times throws you a curve ball
you weren't expecting. What if
you've moved into your "forev-
er home," and suddenly get
laid off from your job, or need
to move for unforeseen family.
or health reasons? Do you lose
your big exemption from prof-
its just because you couldn't
remain in your home for two
years?
The happy answer is no,
not completely. Even the IRS
understands unforeseen cir-
cumstances, and under Internal
Revenue Code 121, you can
get a partial credit for the time
you've lived in your home


before having to sell and
move.
Then your exemption'is
based on the number of
months (out of the twenty
four) that you remained in
your principal residence. If
you have to sell after 18
months, you will qualify for
18-24ths, or 75% of the total
$250K or $500K exemption.
The rules may seem com-
plicated, but with the assis-
tance of your tax adviser and a
trusted real estate professional,
you can maximize your sav-
ings and locate your next
home with a minimum of
aggravation.

you solve a real estate puzzle, call

WRESTLING


4 notch wins

for BHS in

home meet

BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
Overall wins have been hard
to come by for the Bradford
wrestling team, but individual
wrestlers such as Billy Brooks
have fared well in recent
action.
The Tornadoes have lost
matches to Palatka, Baker
County and, most. recently,
Clay.
Head coach Ian Summerville


said the lack of wrestlers to fill
every weight class hurts. ,
"It's tough," he said. "We
give up 24 points every match
by forfeits."
Prior to the Jan. 9 Clay
meet, Brooks placed fifth in a
tournament at Clay High
School.
In the dual meet against
Clay, Brooks recorded a win
by pinning his opponent. That
was one of four wins for
Bradford in the meet. Sean
Boyette and Brandon Andrews
each won their class by a pin,
and Casey Hines won his class
by a decision.
Summerville said Brooks
has the opportunity to qualify


for the state finals, and he's
hoping at least four advance to
the regional tournament out of
the district tournament.
At this point in the season,
the coach said he is happy
despite the fact that several
wrestlers have quit the team.
The remaining wrestlers all
give 100 percent, he said.
"I have 12 hard workers
right now," Summerville said.

Bradford competed in a
tournament at Ridgeview High
School in Orange Park on Jan.
13 and hosted Buchholz on
Wednesday. The Tornadoes
will next be in action on
Thursday, Jan. 25, against
West Nassau in Callahan at 6
p.m.


SOCCER


Indians fall to

St. Johns by

1-0 score

BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
St. Johns Country Day did it
to the Keystone Heights boys
soccer team again, handing the
Indians a 1-0 loss on Jan. 11 in
Keystone.
The Indians were undefeated
after losing 1-0 to St. Johns
back on Nov. 20 and were in
the midst of a 12-game
winning streak. The loss on
Jan. 11 gave the Indians a 13-


2-4 record.
In the teams' first meeting,
Country Day scored a goal in
the 701h minute. This time,
Country Day scored with
approximately three minutes
remaining.
Keystone had a chance
almost a minute later to tie the
score, but Justin Hannah could
not quite get up high enough to
head in Brad Gober's throw-in.
The Indians played we'll
defensively for most of the
night. Austin Bennett
prevented Country Day from
scoring in the 29th minute
when he headed a shot away
from the net, .and goalie
Michael McLeod made two
saves in an approximate two-
minute span early in the
second half.
Keystone created several


more scoring opportunities for
themselves than Country Day,
but just could not convert on
them. The Indians actually
appeared to have scored a goal
at one point in the match, but it
was waved off by the officials.
