Wildfire burns thousands of acres in Bradford


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

Firefighters from across the state
have been battling a wildfire estimated
to have burned 16,000-18,000 acres
in southern Bradford County.
Local emergency responders,
including dozens of volunteer
firefighters and Starke Fire Rescue,
were on scene Monday afternoon,
but the escalating emergency soon
required backup. Around 200
personnel were battling the blaze as
of Tuesday night, with additional
support on the way.
As of early Wednesday morning,
crews were concentrating their efforts
near Speedville Road (Southeast
Eighth Avenue) to the west of
Keystone Heights. Five homes were
threatened by flames and the were
residents evacuated.
According to the county's
emergency operations center, the
nearby Keystone Golf and Country
Club would be in danger if the fire
jumped Speedville Road.
A local state of emergency was
declared Tuesday, and a full-scale
activation of the State Emergency
Response Team was ordered in
Tallahassee as dangerous wildfires
burned in 54 of the state's 67
counties. Fire management assistance
declarations covered 10 of those,
including Bradford, Baker and Union
counties.

School start time changes

possible for BMS, BHS


BY TERESA STONE-IRWIN
Telegraph Staff Writer

At a May 3 workshop, school
board members along with school
administrators, discussed the
possibility of changing the start
times at Bradford High School and
Bradford Middle School.
Currently, students begin their
school day at 7:50 a.m. and end
at 2:50 p.m. The potential schedule
and time change would move the
start time for teachers to 8 a.m. For
students, school would start at 9 a.m.
and end at 3 p.m. The change would
also affect the number of periods in
each day, changing it from seven to
six. The possibility of extending the
end time was also discussed.
The motivation behind changing
the start time for students is to allow
for a common planning time for all
teachers.
"In order to provide the best
education possible, our teachers need
to collaborate and assess on a weekly
basis. To implement the Continuous


Improvement Model, or CIM, this
is an absolute necessity," said BHS
Assistant Principal Lisa Prevatt.
"Teachers need to look at student
data and plan out their instructional
calendars based upon what the
students have mastered and what
they still need to work on. Teachers
can take the time to sit down together
and discuss problem areas and map'
out an effective plan of action."
Prevatt went on to say that research
has shown adolescents to perform
much better in school if they start
their mornings later.
Teachers already have individual
planning periods each school day, but
those planning periods are not all at
the same time, nor do they allow time
for assessing student progress.
Any given teacher has between
120 and J50 students a day. During
their individual planning periods,
they are busy either grading papers,
meeting with students or having
parent conferences," Prevatt said.

Third-grade FCAT


reading scores drop


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

A smaller percentage of third-
graders around the state and in
Bradford County tested proficient
in reading on this year's Florida
Comprehensive Assessment Test.
The county lost gains made last
year in reading performance when
the average third-grader tested
outperformed the state average,
making the district one of the state's
most improved.
This year, the district's average
tumbled 14 points to 303 points,
with 67 percent testing proficient in
reading compared to 81 percent last
year. That was six points behind the
state's 309-point average.
Sixty-nine percent of third-graders
in the state proved proficient in
reading, down from 75 percent last
year.
Brooker Elementary charted the
biggest drop, falling from a score
of 344 points to 317 points. While


100 percent of third-graders tested
proficient in reading last year,
this year only 69 percent did. The
school still managed to top average
performance in reading statewide,
however.
The only other school to do so
was Lawtey Community School with
a 311-point average. Seventy-seven
percent of those third-graders were
proficient readers. But last year the
school's average was 323 points with
90 percent testing proficient.
Hampton Elementary third-graders
ranked third in the district with a
307-point average and 79 percent
proficiency rate, down from 322
points and 93 percent last year.
Starke Elementary and Southside
Elementary each posted a 299-point
average, down from 304 and 319
points last year. Proficiency rates were
63 percent at Starke Elementary and
62 percent at Southside Elementary,
down from 76 percent and 74 percent,
respectively.

In much the same way success
on the FCAT is necessary to
graduate high school, students
who do not perform well on
the FCAT reading test in the
third grade are not allowed to
advance to the fourth "gra'e"
without intense remediation.
Students who score in level
one on a scale of one to five
in reading are targeted for
retention/remediation. A score
placing a student in levels three,
four or five is considered to
show proficiency in the subject
matter.
The percentage of students
scoring at level one by school
is as follows:
-Brooker, 23 percent.
-Southside, 22 percent.
-Starke, 19 percent.
-Lawtey, 15 percent.
-Hampton, 8 percent.
Starke Elementary
posts higher math

There was a slight
improvement statewide in
third-grade math scores on the

average was down somewhat

The exception was Starke

Middle School was .closed on
Tuesday, and residents were
instead directed to the host
shelter established at Madison

housed at the fairgrounds.
Also planning to play host
was the Salvation Army Camp
near Keystone Heights. Beds
were being set aside at the
camp for as many as 50-60
firefighting personnel from

Salvation Army worked with
the American Red Cross to

Real Men Read at

Starke Elementary


BY TERESA STONE-IRWIN
Telegraph Staff Writer


Starke Elementary School's
annual Real Men Read event
took place Thursday, April
26. Coordinated by Starke
Elementary School's media
specialist Shirley Bagwell, area
businessmen took one hour out
of "their busy day to go from
Classroom to classroom reading
to students.
Bagwell said that educators
will tell you that the one most
basic element of a student's
success lies in his or her ability
to read.
"More often than not, children
are read to by females because,
traditionally, most elementary
teachers are female," she said.
"This day gives students the
opportunity to see men in the
classroom reading books to
students."
The28volunteerbusinessmen
went from classroom to
classroom reading stories to
students from kindergarten to
fifth-grade. Every classroom
had at least one guest who read
a book to them.
The men who read to students
were Dr. Virgil Berry; Terry
Blakeslee and Rodney Coe of
First Baptist Church of Starke;
retired Col. Bill Dampier;


Assistant Superintendent
of Schools Rick Ezzell; Joe
Fennell; Steve Futch of Jones
Funeral Home; Herb Green;
Mike Hutcherson; Phillip Johns,
president of Community State
Bank; Major Jeff Johnson of
the Starke Police Department;
Robert Johnson; Jim Lewis of
Communities in Schools: Ron
Lilly; Southside Elementary
School Principal Bill McRae:
school board Chairman Jesse
Moore: Capital City Bank
President Jeff Oody: Starke
Police Cpt. Harvey Rhoden:
Chief of Police Gordon Smith:
Jeff Summers of Madison
Street Baptist Church; Starke
Operations Manager Ricky
Thompson; Supervisor of
Elections Terry Vaughn; Brett
Weaver; City Commissioner
Travis Woods; Mickey Agner
of CIS; School Board Member
David Smith and Chuck Ebert.
Real Men Read is part of the
Altrusa Club's annual literacy
program. Principal Christy
Reddish said that she wants
to thank all of the men who
read to the kids and provided
students with a male presence
in education.
"It's too bad there aren't more
men in the education field. The
students really respond to
them," she said.


Kurston Bakker,
Savannah Dreer and
Hayleigh Newham look
at pictures in the book
being read to them by
Brett Weaver.

Years of dispute over multiple code violations leading to heavy fines and legal
bills have finally resulted in the demolition of the old Gator Ice Plant on Cherry
Street in Starke, pictured above. Demo began Saturday after the city reached an
agreement with the former property owner to forgive hundreds of thousands of
dollars in fines, minus the city's legal costs, in exchange for selling the property.
The property was sold to neighboring Teal Tile and Carpet, which will replace the
rundown ice plant with warehouse space.
Meanwhile, the skeletal remains of the city's old Call Street power plant (below) are
all that is left of the building as environmental cleanup of the property continues.
A portion of the property is already being used as supplemental parking for
the downtown area, and the remainder of that property will be available for that
purpose when the cleanup is complete, at least until the city decides upon another
future use such as a new municipal building.
And speaking of parking, new signage designating the city's public parking lots
has been erected downtown along with directional signs that help the public find
those lots, which are located across from city hall, next to Whale Tales and behind
the Cooper and Adamec Law Offices. They were designed to match the other
parking signs placed on Call Street.

Few details available on


new Starke zoning map


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

The cil\ of Starke's
o\erhauled /oliing mIap is
slated for adoption next w\\ek.
although details are fe\\ on
e\actl\ \'hat changes \\ill
reCSuIt.
According to the zoning
office, there are just too
man\ affected properties for
lando\\ners to be notified
individual .
T'he new map corrects the
former by assigning appropriate
zoning categories based on the
future land use map contained
in the cit 's comprehensive
plan.
A number of conflicts
have existed bet\\een future
land use as envisioned in the
comprehensive plan and the
zoning category assigned to
multiple parcels in the city
limits. The zoning office has
been working with the regional
planning council for months on
a new\ zoning map that would
resolve those conflicts.
Although zoning throughout
the city should match future
land use designations following
adoption of the map, there's no
guarantee that the future land
use and zoning designations
will match the property's
current use.
Once the new map has been
adopted, zoning staff says
individual commissioners may
come back and change both
the future land use and zoning

TALKS mentoring program celeb ats first-year successes


BY TERESA STONE-IRWIN
Telegraph Staff Writer

Bradford County's TALKS
mentoring program currently
has 12 mentors reaching
more than 35 young people
in Bradford Middle School
and Starke Elementary
School, brought together by
an agreement made between
the school board and Bradford
County Faith Community
Center to start the mentoring
program.
In celebration of their
first year of the program, a
leadership banquet was held on
Monday, April 23, honoring the
members of the program.
"This first year was our pilot
program, so its brand new
to Starke. We've seen many
positives from the program,
and we still need to reach more
young people," said Elaine
Slocum, the executive director
for the community center.
TALKS, or Transferring
A Little Knowledge
Systematically, uses a structured
format by which adult mentors
from the community serve
as role models for students.
Rather than the traditional one-
on-one approach to mentoring,
TALKS pairs mentors with three
students identified by school
administration for participation


in the program. The chosen
students are usually a mixed
group with one student who
excels, one whose academic
performance is average but who
could do better with support,
and one who is considered to
be at-risk academically and/or
behaviorally.
The objective of the program
istocreate positive peer pressure
for the low-functioning child
to achieve, but mentees who
spoke at the banquet relayed
that they are all reaping the
benefits.
"I learned that I can be
anything that I want to be," said
one young mentee, Sharicia
Brown.
I learned that I shouldn't
judge people I don't know by
what they do," said Sharod
Jackson, another mentee.
Mentors found they, too,
learned more about themselves
through the process of
mentoring. They share wisdom
with young people, which
reminds them of personal
lessons that they may have
learned long ago.
Pastor James McKnight Jr.
said, "When we were growing
up, things were different.
Parents knew each others kids
and we had more positive
role models around: It has
been said that it takes a whole


village to raise a child. Young
people today are facing man\
challenges we did not face
when we were growing up."
TALKS utilizes a content-
based curriculum that co\crs
issues such as peer pressure.
relationships with siblings.
respect, anger management.
gossiping and understanding
different races and cultures.
Once a week. students and
their mentor spend 30-45
minutes at their school working
on a lesson in the curriculum.
Students read passages along
with their mentors and discuss
the relevance of each topic to
their own lives. Each chapter
includes suggested questions
for the mentor to ask the
students and quotes for the
children to memorize, to help
mentors build a "bridge" of
wisdom for these children.
As children learn how to
communicate more effectively
with their teachers and peers,
they are better equipped with
the necessary tools to avoid
classroom behavior problems. In
other words, a boost in a young
person's emotional intelligence
has direct consequences on his
or her ability to function in a
classroom setting.
Mentor Avery Shell said that
although TALKS is just getting
started, they are enriching

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



Local heroes save couple,

dogs from burning car


TOWN&COUNTRY



iliMMinlI .- 1


BY TERESA
STONE-IRWIN
Telegraph Staff Writer
In the midst of the raging
wild fires in Bradford and
Alachua counties on Monday,
a motorist reported a vehicle
on fire west of Crosby Lake on
Highway 100 at 2 p.m.
Due to the number of
wildfires in the area, the only
unit available to respond was
the Heilbron Springs
Volunteer Fire Department,
which reported that the fire
had been put out at 2:30 p.m.,
avoiding any further risk of


wildfire in the area.
Earlier, motorists reportedly
had witnessed smoke and the
smell of burning oil coming
from the brown Mercury
Cougar as it traveled east on
Highway 100.
Vernell and Katie Hampton
of Lake Butler later passed the
vehicle, which had pulled over
to the shoulder, and they
noticed it was on fire and
people were trapped inside.
The good Samaritans
stopped and pulled the
disoriented and shaken elderly
couple, Cornelia and Raymond
Hall of Starke, from the


burning car. The Halls were
worried about their four dogs,
two of which the Hamptons
were able to pull from the car.
An anonymous couple from
Starke reported to the
Telegraph that they stopped
and assisted in rescuing three
frightened dogs they saw
running loose, on the highway,
and that the Halls were driven
home by the Hamptons.
A forth dog belonging to the
Halls was later found by a
nearby resident and returned to
its owners.
'The Hall's car is not ifisured
and is a total loss.


This is all that remains of a vehicle that caught on fire Monday on Highway 100 in
Bradford County.

3 graduate,


11 inducted as TSIC keeps going strong


By MARCIA MILLER
Telegraph Staff Writer

Three Bradford High School
seniors are graduating at the
end of this month with the
certain knowledge that they
will receive a college
education, thanks to Take
Stock in Children of Bradford
County.
Haley Barnhart, Zach Hill
and Malinda Pellechio will all
walk to the tune of "Pomp and
Circumstance" with college
scholarships already in their
hands.
In sixth, seventh or eighth
grade, the students were each
offered a honey of a
deal-stay in school, stay out
of trouble, stay away from
drugs and get a free college
education. The students got the
assistance of a mentor who
met with them each week to
discuss school work or any
issue in the student's life at the
time.
Mentors for the three 2007
graduates were Sylvia Tatum
(Barnhart), Brad Carter (Hill)
and Linda Tatum (Pellechio).
The three were honored at a
banquet May 8. They sat at the
head table to watch 11 middle
school students as they were
inducted into the program and
began their journey toward
graduation and scholarships.
Each inductee is already


paired with a mentor.
Inducted were: Heather
Harris (mentor Linda Johns),
Lillian Sutton (mentor Linda
Tatum), Christopher
McKenney (mentor Steven
Murphy), Jenna Fulgham
(mentor Joan Hall), Nicole
Slocum (mentor Mary Ann
Kennedy), Johnesha
Hernandez (mentor Tina
Chandler), Chyna Lynum
(mentor Fernice Jackson),
Sharod Jackson (mentor Barry
Warren), Cody Hankerson
(mentor Kevin Mueller),
Martella Moore (mentor Brad
Carter), and Markael Moore
(mentor Jeff Johnson).
There are 16 other students
who are currently participating
in the TSIC program in
Bradford County. They are
(with their mentors):
Mahogany Coleman (Joan
Hall), Casey Higginbotham
(Kim Alldredge), Chad
Parmenter (Mickey Agner),
David Peques (Jim Lewis),
Kristen Rodgers (Linda
Bowen), Eugene Blye (Scott
Roberts), Eric Benton (Bear
Bryan), Marjorie Carney
(Brenda Thornton), Cassandra
Coolidge (Amanda Cooper),
Adam Farlow (Don
Thompson), Laquesha Lane
(Linda Chandler), Rachel
Baier (Bobbie Agner), Krystal
Cornwall (Christine Tatum),
Colton Wall (Michael


McKenzie), Raynard Jenkins
(Edward Hamilton) and
Jennifer Kennedy (Monica
Clements).
That banquet May 8 was
named the First Annual Pat
Farnsworth Graduation
Banquet in memory of the late
Farnsworth and the
contribution he made to TSIC
and the organization that
oversees the program, called
Communities In Schools.
It was Farnsworth, with then
School Superintendent Russell
Larramore, who talked Jim
Biggs into coming out of
retirement and writing grants
for Bradford County schools.
Biggs wrote the grant that first
funded CIS in 1999 and his
"temporary" position as
director of the program is now
eight years old.
"Pat said he wanted me to
do this for 'a little while,'"
said Biggs. "I'm from
Kentucky. When we say 'a
little while,' we mean 'a little
while.' When y'all say that in
Florida, it means something
different, I found out."
Lois Gracey, state director
of CIS, said she remembers
Farnsworth as one of the
driving forces behind what has
now become a very successful
TSIC program. "We (at the
state level) are so proud of
what you have been able to
accomplish here," said Gracey.

Haley Barnhart (standing at left) is one of three Take Stock In Children participants
who is graduating from Bradford High School this year. Standing at right is Barnhart's
mentor, Sylvia Tatum. (Seated, I-r) Barnhart's boyfriend, Robert Davis, and mother,
Tonya Barnhart, also attended the banquet. Not present due to illness was the third
graduate, Malinda Pellechio. Her mentor is Linda Tatum.


"Take Stock In Children is
truly a partnership between the
schools and the community,
and that is exactly what
Communities In Schools is all
about."
Gracey said CIS of Bradford
County grew out of a vision
held by a handful of people.


One of those was Farnsworth.
Under Farnsworth's guidance,
"it has grown into a program
that provides a number of
services for local children,"
said Gracey
"I remember Pat Farnsworth
as a person who lived his
values," she said. "I am


reminded of someone who said
that people who advertise their
values sometimes don't feel
the need to live them, but
people who live their values
don't need to advertise them.
Pat Farnsworth definitely lived

Elijah Hamilton said it was
his Take Stock In Children
mentor, Mike Goldwire, who
taught him how to deal with
obstacles that get in his way.
"He said an obstacle is like a
wall,- you may not be .a6be to
go through it, but you can
climb over or go around," said
Hamilton as he spoke to TSIC
program participants and their
families at the May 8 banquet.
Hamilton spoke to Goldwire
when he said, "There was
never one time that you've
doubted my ability to achieve
and there was never one time
that you thought I should settle
for less than the best."
Hamilton was a TSIC
participant who graduated
from Bradford High School in
2006 and is now a -sophomore
at Santa Fe Community
College.
Hamilton said Goldwire's
belief in him fostered
Hamilton's belief in himself
and was an integral part in his


successful completion- of high
school and his success thus far
in college.
TSIC brought Hamilton and
Goldwire together and made
that supportive relationship
possible, said Hamilton.
TSIC targets low-income
and at-risk students .in the
sixth, seventh and eighth
grades-while there is still
time to make a big difference
in their lives. The program
forges a contract with each
student and his or her parents.
If the student maintains
good grades, stays in school,
stays out of trouble and stays
off drugs, he or she receives a
two-year or four-year
scholarship as part of the
Florida Prepaid College
Scholarship program. The
scholarships can be used at
Florida colleges. or vocational
schools, depending on the
student's choice.
TSIC participants must
maintain a 2.0 grade point
average and score no less than

BY TERESA
STONE-IRWIN
Telegraph Staff Writer
Students from both the
Bradford .Middle School and
Bradford High School bands
recently performed their
district solo and ensembles in
Alachua. Four students
received ratings of either
superior (first place in their
division) or excellent (second
place in division).
Ninth-grader Marjorie
Carney received first place
with a rating of excellent in
both the tenor saxophone and
the contra alto clarinet.
Carney said she that
although she has been playing
the clarinet for a little over a
year, she had only been
playing the sax for a couple of
weeks when she competed.
Chelsea Hamby, eighth-
grade flutist, received the
second highest honors in her
division with a rating of
excellent. Sixth-grader Rachel
Rensberger is a first-year band
student and received a superior
rating for her oboe solo.
Eighth-grader Patricia Carney
received a rating of superior

one or two times a week to
work on their routine. Coach
Hilary Hildebran said although
they are a brand new team this
year, she wanted to take the
girls to the competition in
order to expose them to other
dancers and styles, and to get a
general feel for what takes
place at a competition.

"I was hopeful, but I never
expected the team would do so
well," she said. "I am very
proud of them."
Hildebran is a college
-sophomore pursuing her
degree in Elementary
Education at Florida
Community College in
Jacksonville. She has been
teaching dance for four years.
Says Hildebran, "It was a
great learning experience for
all of the team members and
their families. We hope to

larger group and more than
one routine."

Changes to FCAT scoring system will impact school grade


BY TERESA
STONE-IRWIN
Telegraph Staff Writer
Additional responsibility has
been added this year to
students, teachers and school
administrators who will now
be held accountable for five
additional standards for the
2006-2007 school grade.
Schools earn a grade much
like their students. Three
factors contribute to a school
grade: percentage of students
taking the FCAT, total points
earned on the test and students
making adequate progress in
reading, math, writing and
science.
The 2006-2007 revised
school grading scale has
increased from a total of 600
points to 800 points. There
were plans to increase the
achievement level to a 4.0 on a
scale of 1-5, however, that
change did not take place. The
writing standard remained at
remain at 3.5.
Students were tested in
science on the FCAT last year,
but the scores did not count
towards a school's overall
grade. However this year,
science has been added to the
Florida school grading system,
,but has not yet been made a
requirement for graduation. In
other words, presently,
eleventh-grade students can
fail the science portion of the
FCAT and still graduate from
high' school. Failing the
science portion of the FCAT
will, however, lower a school's
overall grade.
Also new this year will be
the learning gains among the
lowest 25 percent in math. One
point will be awarded to a
school's grade for each percent
making learning gains. The
same such component already
exists for the lowest 25 percent
in reading scores when
calculating a school's grade.
High schools will be able to
earn 10 bonus points toward
their school grade when 50
percent of all eleventh- and
twelfth-graders retaking the
FCAT reading and math meet
the graduation requirement.
Florida is one of the few
states that can track student
demographic information from
year to year and is the first to
track annual student learning
gains based upon the state's


academic standards.
The accountability system
allows the improvement of
individual students to be
tracked from one year to the
next based on FCAT scores in
reading and math in third
through tenth grade.
School grades began in
Florida in 1999 with the
Florida Comprehensive
Assessment Test, or FCAT,
being the primary criteria in
the calculation.
In 2002, improvements were
made in how school grades
were calculated to fully
implement the intent of the A+
plan. The most noteworthy
improvement was the inclusion
of student learning gains.
Additionally, a measure was
added to determine whether
the lowest performing students
are making annual
improvements in reading and
math.
Florida's school grading
system is based 50 percent on
student performance in the
areas of reading, math, writing
and science. Another 50
percent is based on learning
gains in both the reading and
math categories. Additionally,
one point will be awarded to a
school grade for each percent
of the lowest 25 percent of
students scores in math and
reading who have made
learning gains.
Students taking the FCAT
are classified into five
achievement levels, with I
being the lowest and 5 being
the highest.
School earn one point for
each percent of students who
score levels 3, 4 or 5 in
reading, one point for each
percent of students who score
3, 4 or 5 in math, and one point
for each percent of students
who score 3, 4 or 5 in science.
The writing FCAT is scored by
at least two readers on a scale
of 1 to 6. Schools earn one
point for each percent of
students scoring 3.5 or above.
Students can- demonstrate
learning gains in one of three
ways: improve achievement
from level I to 2, 2 to 3, 3 to 4
or 4 to 5, or maintain- within
the high levels of 3, 4 or 5; or
demonstrate more than one
year's growth within levels I
or 2.

Schools earn one point for
each percent of students who
make learning gains in reading
and one point for each percent
of students who make learning
gains in math.
To receive a grade of A, a
school must test at least 95
percent of eligible students,
earn 525 or more points and
make adequate progress with
its lowest performing students
in reading and math.
To receive a grade of B, a
school must test at least 90
percent of eligible students,
earn between 495 and 524
points and make adequate
progress with its lowest
performing students in reading
and math within two years.
To receive a score of C, a
school must test at least 90
percent of eligible students,
score between 435 and 494
points points and make
adequate progress with its
lowest performing students in
reading and math within two
years.
To receive a score of D, a
school must test at least 90
percent, of eligible students and
earn between 395 and 434
points.
A school will receive an F if


they test less than the required
90 percent of eligible students
or if they score less than 395
points.


Schools that do not make
adequate progress with the
lowest performing students in
reading and math must develop


a school improvement plan
that addresses the need.
School grades are expected,
to be released in early June.

Delinquent tax ads explained


BY MARCIA MILLER
Telegraph Staff Writer
Each year a huge list of
property owners and tax
amounts appears in the pages
of the Bradford County
Telegraph and the Union
County Times. Most people
know the list contains the
names of people who have not
yet paid the property taxes that
are due for the current
year-but most people don't
know what that really means to
property owners.
Some people think that the
list represents the land that is
to be sold off for back taxes.
The truth is that only a handful
of those properties will ever be
sold in that fashion.
People receive the bills for
their taxes each year on Nov.
1. A second notice is mailed
out in March. If the taxes are
still not paid by May, then the
list of delinquent property
taxes are advertised in the
county seat newspaper for
three weeks.
If the people on the list do
not settle their tax bills by May
31, then state law allows the
county tax collector to sell a
tax certificate on the property.
That is not the same thing as
selling the property, however.
What the tax collector is
actually selling is a chance for
the state, county and city to get
their tax money right away and
a chance for an investor to
make a profit.
What happens ,. when a
property has a tax certificate
sold on it is simple. Take the
example of a landowner who
owes the state, county and city
a total of $500 in delinquent
taxes. Another person pays
that $500 to the state, county
and city through a process
known as buying a tax
certificate.
When the property owner


finally gets around to paying
the delinquent taxes, he or she
is required to pay an additional
percentage that goes to the
person who bought the tax
certificate. That additional
percentage is a profit for the
person who bought the
certificate.
The longer the property
owner takes to pay off the
delinquent taxes, the more
money the holder of the'tax
certificate makes on the
deal-and the more money the
landowner eventually has to
pay to keep his or her property
out of danger of being sold.
It can be profitable for the
holder of the tax certificate,
but it can take time to see that
profit.
The percentage on what
amounts to a loan made to the
property owner. (in order to
pay the taxes on the land) is
the subject of a bidding
process. People who want to
buy tax certificates bid on the
percentage they will accept as
profit. State law requires that
the tax collector accept the
lowest percentage bid. That
means the holder of the tax
certificate will get less profit
on his or her investment, but it
also means the property owner
will eventually have to pay a
lower total tax bill.
The most money the state,
county or city can receive in
this process is the actual
amount of the property taxes
that are due. No governmental
body makes any additional
money on the process. The
advantage to the governmental
bodies is that they get the tax
money that is due them right
away-money which is used to
fund the state, county and city
budgets.
The highest the tax
certificate percentage can be,
by state law, is 18 percent.


What a great day to celebrate, a day that
we truly ought to be thankful for.
Someone just said to me the other day,
"Why is it that the older you get, the faster .
time goes by ?" Well, its hard to explain,
but life truly is very short. So with that in
mind... lets just pause and reflect upon our
mothers a'nd commit to spending more
time, through visits, cards, phone calls and
prayers.
Where would we be without our mothers?
Our country has been a great country, we
have had a lot of fine men help mold our
country, but the backbone of our society
has been our mothers. They are there to
; nurture and encourage our children.
My mother is with the Lord now and
almost everyday I'm reminded of how,
much I miss her. You know we can't undo /
the past -and that is so painfully clear to
me. My mother was behind the scenes,
never out front, but she truly was my
inspiration. She told me I was special...she
developed in me so many traits that have
become crystal clear.
My dad is a great dad, but out family
would not be if it were not for my mother.
Life is just a vapor or a mist. Take the time
to tell our mother's how much we love
them. Reflect on how much our mothers do
for us.
I wish I would have honored my mother
more while she was alive, and now I can't
-my encouragement to you -show your
mother and tell your mother how much you


-- love her.
My mother was one of God's greatest
: gifts to me. Thanks Mom (Bay) for truly
being my inspiration in life. There can be
no greater calling than that of a Godly
Mother -Thank you mothers -have a
great day!


)


Happy Mother's Day
Harry Hatcher


Going back to the example, if
a tax certificate of 18 percent
is bought on the parcel of land
for which $500 is owed, the
purchaser of the tax certificate
would make $90 the first year
and $180 after two years. The
property owner would pay
$590 the first year and $680
the second.
If the property owner pays
the delinquent taxes within two
years-plus the percentage
that goes to the holder of the
tax certificate-nothing else
happens regarding the property
frim the tax collector's
viewpoint.
If the landowner continues
to fail to pay his or her taxes
past the two-year mark, then a
tax deed can be issued on the
property. The tax deed is
issued only if the person who
bought the tax certificate
applies for a deed. That doesn't
always happen after the two-
year mark. The person who
bought the tax certificate is
sometimes willing to wait a
longer period of time for a
return on his or her investment.
A tax deed cannot be issued
before two years have passed,
but it is usually issued within
seven years after the taxes
have been declared delinquent.

When a tax deed is issued,
then the property itself goes up
on the auction block.'
property is sold to the higlt
bidder and the tax certificate
holder receives the money that
is due him or her (the amount
of the taxes owed, plus the
percentage of profit). The
remainder of what is bid is
given to the property owner.
Sometimes no one bids on a
property. If that happens, then
the property is placed under
the ownership of the person
who bought the tax certificate.

Biggs noted that some of the
early success CIS and TSIC
had in Bradford County could
be attributed to the personal
drive of Farnsworth. "Through
shear willpower, he would
make things happen for the
community," said Biggs.
Farnsworth died in 2004
after a lengthy battle with
cancer. He co-owned Douglas,
Douglas and Farnsworth, an
accounting firm in Starke.
Farnsworth was exceptionally
active in the community, well
beyond CIS and TSIC, but
programs that supported local
education were always of high
importance for him.
- The keynote speaker at the
event was Elijah Hamilton,
who graduated in 2006 as a
TSIC scholarship recipient. He
is currently a sophomore at
Santa Fe Community College.
Hamilton laid a large part of
the credit for his success at the
door of TSIC and his mentor,
Mike Goldwire.
"Take Stock In Children is a
wonderful program that grants
scholars like myself an
opportunity to reach their
educational and career goals
without financial obstacles,"
said Hamilton.
"This program instills a
drive in scholars-to be attentive
in school, drug free and strive
for academic excellence," he
said. "Take Stock In Children

class. They must also have a
good attendance record.
Each' student will be
appointed a mentor who will
meet with the student at least
once per week during school
hours. The mentor provides
motivation, tutoring, support
and someone to talk to about
both present problems and
future aspirations.

Students remain in the TSIC
program through high school
graduation. Thus far, 12,000
TSIC scholarships have been
awarded in Florida, said Kim
Alldredae, TSIC coordinator
for Bradford County.
Alldredge said the
program's mission statement
is, "To passionately promote
personal growth, self-
responsibility and academic
success for deserving, low-
income children by providing a
unique set of resources,
including mentors,
scholarships, long-term
support, student advocacy and
a guaranteed educational
opportunity."
The mentors are community
volunteers who are trained by
TSIC. Each mentor donates
one hour per week to meet
with a student.
Parents of participants meet
with school personnel on a
regular basis to track the
student's educational success.
The scholarships are funded
through donors who contribute
money that is used to purchase
Florida Prepaid College
Scholarships. The donations
are tax-deductible and 100
percent of the funds donated
go directly into scholarships.


TSIC's office expenses are
funded by a state grant.
There are currently 27 TSIC
participants in Bradford

to avoid any conflict of interest
by being sure to use a pest con-
trol company that is different
from the one currently servicing
the home. This ultimately pro-

problems show up later, it can

Rebekah Selph: a mother's miracle after brain surgery


BY TERESA
STONE-IRWIN
Telegraph Staff Writer
In October 2006, 3-year-old
Rebekah Selph was admitted
into the Epilepsy Monitoring
Unit at Shands at the
University of Florida. After a
week of study, it was
determined that Rebekah was a
good candidate .for surgery
-with the expected outcome of a
decrease in or the ability to
control her seizures with
medications.
Her father, Shane, said that
the grids showed Rebekah's
brain was steadily misfiring.
"It wasn't just every now
and then. It was pretty much
all of the time, and she had
likely been living that way her
entire 3 years of life," he said.
The doctors sho-wed
Rebekah's mother, Nancy the
constant trauma happening to
Rebekah's brain on the
monitor.
"I'm a visual person and I
really feel that was God's way
of showing me that we needed
to give the okay for Rebekah
to have the surgeries," Nancy
said.
The.Selphs discussed it and
said they received an
overwhelming peace of mind
about it. Moreover, the
neurosurgeon that would be
performing the surgery was
Dr. David Pincus, one of the
top five neurosurgeons in the
country.
"Imagine that," said. Shane.
"One of the top neurosurgeons
right there at Shands for
Rebekah."


On Feb. 13, 2007, the first
brain surgery was performed
by Pincus to determine which
portion of her brain was
causing the seizures and could


that portion be removed. The
procedure, which took between
four and five hours, required
Rebekah's long hair to be
shaved from her head. A large


incision in the shape of a
question. mark was made in the
side of Rebekah's head to
remove a portion of her skull.
The surgeon then attached


sensor grids to her brain.
During Seizures, the sensors
can successfully monitor brain
waves to pinpoint, trie precise
location of the brain that is


causing Rebekah's seizures.
"It was weird after that first
surgery because we, as parents,

Area women take cancer in stride, remain positive


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
When B.J. Warwick iand
Paulette Sikes participate in
the first lap of the American
Cancer Scoiety's Relay for
Life this Friday, May 11, in
Starke, they will represent
opposite ends of the spectrum.
Warwick has undergone a
mastectomy recently and is


currently undergoing
chemotherapy, with radiation
treatments looming on the
horizon. Sikes has already
undergone all of that and has
been pronounced cancer free.
The two women, though at
different points in their battle
against .breast cancer, share
one thing in common besides
the disease-their positive
outlook, which came about

through their faith and the
strong support they have
received from family and
friends.
"You can get through it-,"
Sikes said. "I had to pray a lot.
I did a lot of praying to get
myself out of that bed and not
feel sorry for myself. I got up-
and went to work."
During her prayers, Sikes
gave thanks. She looked at her
situation as a blessing because
she was suffering as opposed
to one of her two daughters.
"This is the way I look at'
it- thank you, God, that it was
me and not one of my
children," she said. "Thank
you for that, because what
could be worse?"
Warwick said she is a firm
believer that a person's attitude
dictates how he or she gets
through the tough times in life.
Therefore, Warwick said she
has actually had a lot of fun
during this time, relishing the
moments she gets to spend
with her sisters.
"We've. had a lot of fun
buying hats, wigs and just all
kinds of stuff," she said.
"We've just made it like a
family affair."
As is typical 'with
chemotherapy, Warwick is
losing her hair, but that won't
stop her from attending the
survivors' dinner prior to the
Relay for Life, then taking the
first lap of the event, which is
known as the survivors' lap.
Warwick said she realizes

shock that they had cancer.
Their shock stemmed from the
same reason.
"I just couldn't believe it
because there is nothing like
that in my family," Sikes said.
"I kept telling (doctors)
there's no cancer in our family
of any sort," Warwick said.
"Somebody's got to start it. I
guess I was the chosen one."

some people may stay at home
rather than participate in the
survivors' activities because of
embarrassment, but she
stressed that people do not
need to feel that way.
"My hair will grow back,
and I will still be alive,"
Warwick said. "To me, cancer,
no matter what kind it is, is
nothing to be embarrassed
about."
Sikes participated in the
survivors activities last year,
saying it was an enjoyable
time.
"When you are dealing, with
a life-threatening disease,
every day after that is a
blessing," Sikes said. "You are
happy. Cancer survivors are
typically very upbeat, happy
people because they're glad to
be here. They recognize what
life's all about."
A change in family
history
To reach their positive
outlooks, Warwick and Sikes
first had to get over the initial:-


done after a mammograms she
had done on Feb. 1. However, -
she merely faced the prospect
of having it done again in the
future.
"I opted not to mess with it
anymore," Warrick said. "If
they even thought I had cancer,
I wanted it gone."
She had a mastectomy
performed on March 16 by Dr.
Tina Lam.

MIRACLE
Continued from p. 1C
would know when she was
experiencing a seizure and
would push the alarm button,"
Nancy said.
"The nurses could not see
any noticeable visual signs of a
seizure, but sure enough, they
were registering on the
monitor.
"We were later told that had
we not been so attuned to her,
the fact that she was having
seizures may have continued
undetected for a period of her


lifetime. The doctors were
rightthere in the room with as
and couldn't even tell she was
having seizures.
"The doctors were so
informative. They gave us the
good with the bad and even
told us that we would probably
hate them all by the end of that
first week," said Nancy.
"And we were getting pretty
close to that point," added
Shane. "It isn't easy to stand
by and watch your child going
through this."
"You know, three weeks
before she was born, I just
woke up suddenly in the
middle of the night and started


freaking out," said Nancy.
"I called my midwife and
told her she had to get this
baby out of me right now. And
that's not like me. In my heart,
I believe that is when Rebekah
had her stroke. She was still in
the womb when it happened."
Shane said what was even
worse was the fact that Nancy
had never had any pain
medication when their other
three children were born, but
was given an epidural during
labor with Rebekah.
"Nancy was accidentally
over-medicated during her
epidural procedure, and they
lost her pulse during delivery,"
he said.
Rebekah's doctor, chief
pediatric neurologist Paul
Carney, told the Selphs they
would be able to safely remove
the part of Rebekah's brain
that was causing her seizures
because it was an area that
would not cause any further
motor skills or speech defects.
Following the first
successful surgery, Rebekah
was wheeled to the pediatric
intensive care unit. In order for
family or friends to call in, and
get patient information, they
are required to know a
password. Shane said they
chose the password "miracle"
because that's what they were
praying for.
Following her second brain
surgery on Feb. 20, Rebekah
awoke when Dr. Carney came
by to check on her. For the
very first time in her life,
Rebekah extended her arm all
the way and opened her hand.
Shane said, "Dr. Carney
looked at us and asked, 'Has
she ever done this before?'
Nancy and I were just crying.
Even Dr. Carney got teary-
eyed. We got our miracle."


Nancy laughed as she said
the doctor called that a side
effect of the surgery.
"And a good one, at that,"
she said.
Before the surgeries, Shane
and Nancy were told the most
usage their daughter would
ever have of her arm was 30 to
40 percent. Following the
surgeries, and with continued
therapy, that number has now
increased up. to between 70
and 80 percent.
Shane said that because of
the stroke Rebekah
experienced, she will always
be somewhat weaker on one
side, but not so noticeably bad.
"I had a guy at work come
out and ask me one day, 'So
what's it like having a child
that's a cripple?' To tell you
the truth, I don't think of
Rebekah that way. She has use
of both of her arms now and
not only that, but here recently,
she just started jumping up and
down on both feet. She has
never been able to do that
before. And running. She
wants to run everywhere
now!"
Rebekah has pretty much
been seizure-free since the
surgeries except for a recent
virus lasting 12 days that
prompted a few seizures.
Rebekah's brain tissue was
sent to Johns Hopkins
University and the University
of California, Los Angeles, to
verify what Dr. Carney
suspects could be Rasmussen's
encephalitis, a rare and chronic
inflammatory disease that
usually affects only one
hemisphere of the brain.., ,
It usually occurs in children
under the age of 10, and is
characterized by frequent and
severe seizures, loss of motor
skills and speech, paralysis on

one side of the body,
inflammation of the brain
(encephalitis), and mental
deterioration.
Just as in Rebekah's ,case,
individuals with Rasmussen's
encephalitis will, experience
frequent seizures and brain
damage over the course of the
first 8 to 12 months of the
disease, and then enter into a
phase of permanent
neurological deficits.
Nancy said the doctor told
them that had they opted to try
controlling Rebekah's seizures


with diet and more
medications, she would have
continued with non-stop
seizures. As they progressed,
Rebekah's brain would have
continued to shrink until she
entered into a vegetative state
and died.
"He told us if she really does
have Rasmussen's, that within
a year, it would have spread to
the point that they would not
have been able to operate on
her," Nancy said.
Miracles really do still
happen.

chemotherapy and then two
days afterward is
"remarkable."
The one thing that has been
affected by it, however, is the
taste of food (there are also
types of food that will make
her nauseus). Steak does not
taste the same, for example,
and Warwick has "given up
drinking coffee.
"Twice after I had chemo I
made coffee in the mornings
and never drank any of it," she
said. "Caffeine is not a good
thing when you're on chemo
because it dries you out. I even
went and bought a big can of
decaf, but I just don't drink it
-at all."
When Warwick's
chemotherapy is complete, she
will undergo radiation
treatments, which will take
place every day for six weeks.
Her oncologist said with her
type of cancer, the
chemotherapy may be enough,
but he strongly recommended
radiation treatments as well.
"That's what I want to do,"
Warwick said. "I want to do
everything he even thinks I
might want to do."
Sikes has already been
through chemotherapy and
radiation treatments. Her
ordeal began on in 2005. She
said she thought she was
healthy, but a doctor in Starke,
during an annual exam, felt a
-mass-in her breast. The doctor
was so concerned, he picked
up the phone and got her an
appointment with a radiologist
in Gainesville that same day.
A mammogram and a
sonogram were done. The
results of those led to an -
appointment-still that same
day-with Dr. Earl Pickens in
Gainesville. That was followed
quickly by surgery.
"Two days later, I was at
North Mor-dr having that mass
removed," Sikes said.
Pickens told Sikes he was 90
percent sure the mass was
cancerous, and he
recommended she have a
mastectomy done. That took
place on Dec. 27, 2005.
Like Warwick, Sikes'
chemotherapy-with Dr.
Robert Carroll-occurred
every three weeks for a total of
six treatments. She
remembered getting a
"fabulous" wig from a
business in Jacksonville when
her hair began falling out. No
one even knew she was
wearing a wig.
Since then, people who
know Sikes have gone to the
same Jacksonville business to
buy wigs. Sikes said she has
probably been responsible for
12-15 of the store's sales.
"I started a trend," she said.
After chemotherapy, Sikes
went through radiation
treatments with Dr. Cherylle
Hayes.
"They cast you so that you
lay in the same spot every time
you go for radiation," she said.
"It was every day for six
weeks."
The entire experience
proved to be a life-changing
experience for Sikes. She is
now thankful every day for
what she has, without
worrying about things in life
that just don't matter in the


grand scheme of things.
"I don't stress out as much
about the little things
anymore," she said.

Not alone
Something she and Warwick
have not had to stress out over
is having to go through their
situations alone. Sikes, in fact,
was just overwhelmed by the
amount of support she received
from the people in Starke.
"When I went into surgery,"
she said, "I told them,
'Nothing can go wrong. I have
a whole town praying for
me.'"
Sikes said she could never
thank the women's group at
First United Methodist Church
of Starke enough for their
support. The women cooked
and provided meals for her
family during her
chemotherapy treatments and
offered to clean her house and
drive her to Gainesville for her
treatments.
"They backed me up 110
percent," Sikes said.
Of course, Sikes also
received support at home from
her husband, Dan, and two
daughters, who are 9 and 11.
Family support has been big
for Warwick. Her sister,
Jeannette Abbott, who lives in
Tampa, took her to her first
chemotherapy treatment.
Sisters Cosette Howard and
Sharon Smith also do anything
to help Warrick, from taking
her to doctors' appointments or
taking her to the grocery store
in Starke. In fact, Smith, who
Warrick refers to as the
family's "Mama," has been
told by her boss in Gainesville
she can take whatever time she
needs away from work to help
Warrick.
Warwick, who also has
brothers and two sons to lean
on, could not imagine getting
by without her family.
"You don't realize how
many doctors' appointments
and stuff like that you have to

go to," she said. "1 could not
drive for three weeks, so I had
to depend on somebody else to
do it for me."
That family extends to "all
the girls" at Camp Blanding,
where Warwick works.
"This Thursday, one of them
is taking me to Gainesville to
meet my sister for the chemo
(treatment)," Warwick said.
"They're just wonderful out
there, all of them. They
actually set my office up at
home so I can work there when
I feel like it."
Warwick and Sikes have
also received support from the
American Cancer Society, the
organization responsible for
the Relay for Life. Warrick
recalls talking to a member of
ACS on the phone who had an
answer for every question she
had, plus an ACS
representative left a message
on her answering machine
saying to get in touch with the
organization if she needed
anything.
In Sikes' words, ACS is
"absolutely fabulous."
"They give you all the
information you need," she
, .said. "If you have. any
questions, there's always
somebody on the other line
who will talk to you, who's
compassionate. They have lots
of compassion, patience and
caring."
That's why Sikes said events
like the Relay for Life are so
important. She knows where
the money raised goes. She has
a packet-her personal health
manager-she received from
ACS, filled with books on
topics such as how to select a
wig and understanding
radiation. It also includes such
things as a personal journal, an
appointment schedule and
other information on topics
such as services and support,
recipes and pain and fatigue.
"It's just a wealth of
information," said Sikes,-
adding, "This is where your
money goes."

her letter-of-intent.
Smith got his first glimpse
of Griffin when he watched a
video tape mailed to him by
Bradford head coach Shane
McFadyen. What Smith said
he saw was a complete
player-someone who could
distribute the ball to his team's
post players, yet who could
also take the ball to the basket
herself because of her
quickness, as well as someone
who could pull up and shoot 3-
pointers.
In essence, he.saw a player
who could spark his team.
Smith just hoped he still, had a
chance to make an offer.
Smith had been out of town,
so he had no idea how long the
video tape had been sitting in
his mailbox. He picked up the
phone and called McFadyen,
saying, "Coach, I don't know
how long I've had your tape,
but tell me she's still
available."
"All that stuff (on the video)
really impressed me enough to
say, 'Well, let me follow up on

us,'" Smith said.

When Keystone Heights
High School senior Brandon
McGuire dreamed of playing
college football, the sport did
not exist at Huntingdon
College in Montgomery, Ala.
Now, the Hawks of
Huntingdon will welcome
McGuire as a member of its
program, which is entering its
fifth year of play.
"I'm really excited," said
McGuire, who signed a letter-
of-intent on April 26. "Ever
since I started playing football,
I was hoping for this day. I just
hope I go off and have a great
time and a good year. I just
want to make everybody
proud."
McGuire, a linebacker,
admitted there were times
where he did not think he
would play beyond high
school, but those around him
kept him from becoming
discouraged.
"There, were plenty of times
over the years where I was
thinking, 'Yeah, I'm too small.
I don't have enough money.
It's not going to happen.' I had


plenty of friends and family
who kept me going," McGuire
said.
McGuire met coaches from
Huntingdon at a recruiting fair.
He later provided them with
information on himself, which
eventually led to him visiting
the campus. Once there,
McGuire said he "just kind of
fell in love with it."
"It's more of a small school,
which is what I'm used to
here," he said. "It seemed like
it had a lot of nice people."
Huntingdon announced it
was forming a Division III
football program-the first of
its kind in Alabama-in 2002.
The school took to the field in
2003 with a group of 85
recruits, drawing
approximately 2,000 fans to its
first home game.
The Hawks went 6-4 last
year after going 7-2 in 2005.
"I think it will be a good
experience 'for (McGuire),"
Keystone head coach Chuck
Dickinson said.
Dickinson said the
Huntingdon coach, Mike Turk,
sounded excited on the phone
about having McGuire join his


team. What Turk will be
getting, in Dickinson's words,
is a player who "gets around
the ball." McGuire was among
Keystone's top three tacklers
in each of his last two seasons.
He tied with fellow linebacker
Jack Taylor for the team lead
this past season with 136.
McGuire was a second-
team, all-area pick by the
Gain.esville Sun and received
Class 2A all-state honorable
mention.
There is more to McGuire
than stats, however. Dickinson
said McGuire is a hard worker
and a leader. McGuire
received the team's Gary
Cooper Leadership Award this
year, .as well as the Most
Determined Award.
"He doesn't say a whole lot,
but during football season,
when he said something or
made a statement, the kids
listened to him," Dickinson
said. "I think he led lust by
example and intensity. He's
just a great competitor."
*McGuire said he tried to
show the Huntingdon coaches

fourth.
"That kind of broke our
back," Union head coach Terry
Strocmer said.
The Tigers' lone run was
driven in by Austen Roberts on
a fielder's choice. That scored
Tyler Osteen, who reached on
a single.
Another potential run was
taken away when Brett
Maddox -was called out on a
force-out at second. Stroemer
said the call was not close-
Maddox was safe.
"The umpire blew the call,"
Stroemer said.
Maddox finished the game
2-for-2, while Osteen was 1-
for-1 with a walk.
It brought to an end the
Tigers' most successful season


since 1977, as far as wins and
losses go. That team went 26-
4, but did not advance as far "
into the postseason.
The key to this year's
success was a camaraderie that
existed between the players, 12
of whom are seniors.
Stroemer said most of those
seniors, whom he termed an
"awesome group," had been
involved in the program since
their freshmen years.
"It took four years of hard
work and it paid off," he said.
Maddox, Osteen and
Roberts are seniors, as are
Chip Clemons, Darren Hall,
Amir Jackson, Danny Lane,
Wade McDowell, Greg -
Parrish, Kyle Parrish, Brandon
Shoup and Donny West. ,


The Lake Butler Middle School boys track team showed off the prizes they won
Saturday at the state championship. The team was runner-up for the state
championship, including (I-r) Coach Garrett Beatty, Keaton Reynolds, Justin
Tyson, Bryan Holmes, Chasen Andrews, Coach Travis Reynolds and (front)
Antonio Henderson.


LBMS boys earn runner-


up finish at state meet


Members of the Lake Butler
Middle School's boys track
team had done a lot of talking
about how well they would do
at state competition, and at that
competition on Saturday, May
5, they all ran the races of their
lives to prove it.
The team is made up of
seventh-grader Antonio
Henderson and eighth-graders
Bryan Holmes, Justin Tyson,
Keaton Reynolds and Chasen
Andrews.
At the Flrunners.com
Middle School Championship,
Lake Butler was the best
public middle school team,
losing the championship by
only two points to private
school Belen Jesuit Prep from


Miami.
Coach Travis Reynolds said
the director of the meet, along
with other teams' coaches and
parents from around the state,
all complimented the LBMS
team on its display of
athleticism. Most of the other
teams the Tigers competed
against had two to three times
the number of members.
The LBMS 4xl00m relay
team- Reynolds, Tyson,
Henderson and Holmes-won
the state championship with a
time of 45.3. That would have
been good enough to place
seventh in the high school state
track meet.
Holmes also set a state
record in the high jump at


'5'11". H came in second in the
100m and 200m, falling just
two tenths of a second short of
first in both events.
Tyson took third in the
100m and 200m, just missing
his teammate by one tenth of a
second in the 100m and by five
hundredths in the 200m. He
took third in the long jump at
2"5".
Reynolds ran his best time
(27.75) all year in the 200m
hurdles, enabling him to bring
home fourth in that event. He
also placed sixth in the 100m
hurdles.

Andrews ran his best race
(15.95) of the year in the 100m
hurdles and earned sixth place
in the 200m hurdles. He was
part of a four-way tie for
fourth place in the high jump
with 5'4".
Holmes, was awarded the
state MVP trophy for his
performance ..i s1 t -.

Sixth inning propels


Saints to win over KHHS


BY CLIFF SMELLEY.
Telegraph Staff Writer
Pitcher Andrew Secules
gave up just two hits, but one
of those was a double with the
bases loaded that helped propel
host Trinity Prep to a 4-0 win
in a Region 2-Class 3A
baseball semifinal game on
May 4 in Winter Park.
Trinity Prep scored four
unearned runs in the bottom of
the sixth to advance to the
Region 2 championship, which
was played this past Tuesday
against Lake Highland Prep.
The Indians, advancing to
the second round of the
regional playoffs for the first
time since 1999, ended their
season with a 19-9 record.
"Obviously we were
disappointed," Keystone head
coach Alan Mattox said, "but I
was certainly proud of their
effort."
Secules (5-7) had a no-hitter
going until the sixth. Keystone
committed two errors in the
inning, the second of which
allowed the game's first run to
score.
It was not indicative of the
defensive effort shown by the
Indians throughout the rest of
the game. Mattox said the team


had approximately eight plays
in the field that were
"phenomenal."
With two runners on and
two outs, Secules intentionally
walked a batter to load the
bases. Trinity's Mike Prosser,
however, cleared the bases
with a double to right-center
field that capped the scoring.
Keystone batters managed
just four hits against Trinity
pitcher Will Matthews.
"We just never got in a
situation to drive guys in,"
Mattox said.
It was the last game for
Keystone's six seniors, three
of whom made up the team's
top of the order: Tyler
Richardson, Tyson Paulk and
Blake Lott.
Also graduating will be
Chad Berkson, Jordan Fogg
and Josh Mangus, who did not
play this year because of
injury.
Mattox said the team will
miss the seniors' leadership as
well as their on-field
production.
"I couldn't ask for a better
bunch of seniors," Mattox said.

Earlier result:


KHHS 6 Williston 1
Keystone advanced to the
Region 2 semifinals by going
on the road and defeating
Williston 6-1 in a quarterfinal
game on May 1.
It was a good start for the
Indians when Richardson led
off the game with a triple. He
scored on a single by Paulk.
That would be the only run
pitcher Lott would need. Lott
(11-1) gave up six hits and one
walk, while striking out six in
a complete-game performance.
Mattox described the
Keystone offense as
methodical. The Indians scored
a run in each of .the first,
second and third innings, then
added two more in the fifth to
go up 5-0.
The team did a good job of
limiting its strikeouts against
Williston ace Jiwan James and
forcing the Red Devils to play
defense, Mattox said.
"I thought our hitters were
really disciplined at the plate,"
he said.
Paulk went 3-for-4 to lead
the team, while Cole Belote
and Fogg were 2-foi-4 and 2-
for-3, respect elh. :

A hot-hitting Lake Highland
Prep put an end to the Union
County baseball team's
postseason, handing the Tigers
an 11-1 loss in five innings in
a Region 2-Class 3A semifinal
game on May 4 in Orlando.
Lake Highland (19-10), a
state semifinalist last year,
played Trinity Prep (18-10) for
the Region 2 championship
this past Tuesday.
Union's season ends with a
22-5 record.
The Highlanders led 1-0
before breaking the game open

willing to step into the role of
leader and put forth the effort
to not just make himself a
better player, but those around
him as well.
"I'm willing to work hard to
help the team," he said.
Dickinson said McGuire's


hard work is not limited to the
field. In the classroom, he
carries a GPA of
approximately 3.5.
The Keystone coach said he
wished he had 12 more players
on his team like McGuire. As
it is, the coach will lose the
only Brandon McGuire he had,
but he could not be happier for
him.
"I'm just excited for him to
get the chance to play,"
Dickinson said. "I think he'll
do well."

could step in and become a
starter, Smith said. That would
be a huge benefit to him
because point guard is an area
of need on his team.
"We have one (guard)
coming back who we really
need to move to the 2 guard,"
Smith said. "We really need
someone who could come in
and play right away with some
speed and quickness, and who
can handle ball pressure."
All skills Smith and
McFadyen say Griffin
possesses.
"She really doesn't have any.
weaknesses," McFadyen said.
The one thing that stands out
in McFadyen's mind, though,
is Griffin's speed.
"You either keep up with her
or you get left behind," he
said.
Griffin is small in stature,
but Smith said when he
watched the video of her, he
thought of another diminutive
guard-the University of


Tennessee's Shannon Bobbitt.
Griffin averaged 12.5 points
and nine assists per game.this
past season for Bradford. She
also had more than three steals
per game en route to earning
Class 4A all-state honorable
mention. She was a first-team
all-area pick by the Gainesville
Sun.
"She does have, what I
consider, the complete
package," Smith said.
When she steps onto the
court for the first time as a St.
Petersburg player, whether it's
as a starter or not, Griffin said
she's sure she'll be nervous.
However, she does not
anticipate that will last long.
"Once I get into the game,
it'll be over," she said.
Nervous or not, Griffin will
probably be flashing her ever-
present smile. McFadyen said
Griffin just loves to play, so
he's thrilled she's getting this
opportunity.
"I'm just excited for her to
have the opportunity to go on
and play college ball,"
McFadyen said. "She's a great
talent and a heck of a ball
player."


Dreams come true. Without that possibility, nature would not
incite us to have them.
