child in need on your Christmas
shopping list and help make their

Starke Veterans
Day activities
announced
American Legion Post 56
Commander Bill Cloud this week
announced the events that will be
held in Starke in observance of
Veterans Day.
"To ensure our country remains free
and that citizens retain their rights-
particularly the right to decide how
we are governed-countless veterans
have served at home and abroad to
secure and preserve those rights. It
is important that we celebrate and
honor all of our veterans and serving
personnel," Cloud said.
The American Legion Post Home
on Edwards Road will host the
annual breakfast for veterans and
their family members on Sunday,
Nov. 11, from 7-9 a.m. At 10 a.m.,
the entire community is invited -to
the ceremony at Charles J. Schaefer
Sr. Veterans Memorial Park on East
Call Street.
"We realize that this time period
will conflict with many religious
services, but the significance of the
time of 11 a.m. on this special day is,
important," said Cloud.
World War I ended at 11 a.m. on
Nov. 11, 1918 (the Ilth hour of the
S11th day of the 11 th month of the
year).
"Veterans of Bradford County
continue to be proud of the many
expressions of patriotism and the
support for our nation and its many
heroes, both civilian and military.
Please remember that the purpose of
this day in not just another holiday
but specifically to honor military
service members and veterans in our
community, state and nation," Cloud
said.


Smokey Bear received all kinds of attention when he made an appearance at Hope Christian
Academy's Occupation Day. The younger students welcomed him with hugs and pats on the
back, while Deklan Dougherty (above), a K-3 student, showed Smokey how he can roar like

County signs new manager contract


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

On Monday, the county commission
approved a contract with its chosen
manager, Brad Carter.
Carter will earn a starting salary
of $65,000 in his capacity as the
county's top administrator in charge
of personnel and projects, and play a
large role in helping to plan, supervise
and administer the budgetary process.
The one-year contract contains a two-
year renewal option.
Carter was the lone candidate
after an in-house search for qualified
applicants. Carter had a career in
corrections stretching back to 1976,
but has been administrator at the


county jail since June 2006.
Sheriff Bob Milner announced
the promotion of Carol Starling to
the jail administrator position on
Monday. She, too, has a long history
in corrections, serving as a warden
at several institutions before retiring
from state employment.
. Milner said he's known Starling
and her family, which includes her
husband, Robert "Buddy" Starling,
and their children and grandchildren,
for many years.
"Even though she's been with us
less than a year in the jail, she just
has tremendous skills--technical and
people skills-and I think she's going
to do a marvelous job," Milner said.
Starling said she appreciated the


already very capable emergency
response services," said Wright.
"Contributing to safer communities
'is just one more way that DuPont
is working to be a good neighbor in
North Florida."
The DuPont Community Fund is
a competitive grant-making program
established to improve the quality
of life and enhance the vitality of
communities in which we operate. The
DuPont Community Fund provides
financial support to programs and
organizations that address one or
more of the three key components
-in community sustainability: social
progress, economic success and
environmental excellence.
'DuPont is a science-based products
and services company. Founded in
1802, DuPont puts science to work
by creating sustainable solutions
essential to a better, safer, healthier life
for people everywhere. Operating in
more than 70 countries. DuPont offers
a wide range of innovative products
and services for markets, including


opportunity, has enjoyed working
at the jail and looks forward to
continuing to create new programs
and making the jail one of the
county's best-run operations.
Jim Crawford told the commission
he appreciated the opportunity he
was given to serve as county manager
-and the support he received from the
commissioners over the last two and
a half years.
"My heart's desire was to- give
something back to my' community
and serve the people through you. I
have a great sense of self-satisfaction
that I've done that," Crawford said.
Likewise, County Chairman
Eddie Lewis said the commission
appreciates Crawford for his work.


The Bradford County Commission
had welcome news at their recent
meeting, when they were presented
with an award by representatives of
the local DuPont site.
Bradford County was the winner
of a $4,000 grant from the DuPont
Community Fund. The winning
grant application proposed funding
upgrades to Bradford County
emergency response services.
The funds will be allocated at the
discretion of the Bradford County
Commission.
DuPont Florida Mine Safety,
Health and Environmental Manager
David Wright worked with Bradford
County Manager Jim Crawford
to write and co-sponsor the grant
application: Employee involvement
and community leadership are
critical parts of winning a DuPont
Community Fund grant.
"Safety and protection is one of
DuPont's most closely held values.
We hope that this donation will
contribute to Bradford County's


KH man

arrested for

pharmacy

burglary
A 21-year-old Keystone Heights
man. was arrested Nov. 6 for a
pharmacy burglary in Bradford and
possibly two burglaries in Clay.
The most recent burglary was
discovered early Tuesday at Madison
Street Pharmacy in Starke.
Entrance was gained at' 5 a.m.
by breaking a window. The theft
involved prescription medications
including Percocet, morphine
sulfate, hydrocodone and oxycodone,
Endocet, hydromorphone, methadone
and Valium. Forty missing bottles
containing several thousand pills were
taken from the pharmacy, according
to Lt. Barry Warren. Value of the
medication was estimated at $8,872,
Lt. Warren said.
Working with Clay deputies, who
were investigating two recent break-
ins in Keystone Heights, a suspect
was identified by video and Starke
officers with Clay County located the
suspect and his vehicle.
Christopher Lee Fore's vehicle
was stopped in Clay County and he
was questioned. In Fore's vehicle
were pill bottles, prescriptions and
additional documents from Madison
Street Pharmacy, Warren said. A
warrant was secured and Fore was
charged with the burglary of structure,
grand theft and criminal mischief.
Bond was set at $80,000.
"Good old-fashioned police work
and cooperation between agencies
solved this case," Starke Chief
Gordon Smith said. "Communication
between my patrol sergeant, citizens,
my investigators and agency
cooperation, all contributed to
successfully that solving this case.
These are potentially dangerous
drugs and we do not want them on
the streets killing our children. When
we get them off the street this fast, we
are saving lives."
Investigators Kevin Mueller and
James Hooper assisted in the arrest.
Clay deputies were investigating
two break-ins at pharmacies, in the
Keystone Heights area.
On Oct. 31, Deputy J.M. Allen
responded to Family Medical and
Dental Center. The business had been
broken into prior to 4:30 a.m., Allen
said. A window had been shattered
in the front lobby to gain entrance,
Allen said.
Missing from shelves in the
main pharmacy were four bottles
of alprazolam and five bottles of
hydrocodone.
Total value of the drugs was
$461.37. Damage to the window was
$300.

County agrees to private road solution


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
...- Telegraph Fditor

A new ordinance to allow
the county to work on private
dirt roads was met with
approval and some confusion
on Monday.
The ordinance and
accompanying resolution
establish a program that
allows the county to perform
services such as grading on
private dirt roads as long as
residents are willing to pay
upfront for those services. The
program is a way to address
common road complaints while
getting around the illegality of
spending taxpayer money on
privately owned roads.
Citizen Tom Tatum told
commissioners he supported
the idea.
"I know it's really not the
county's responsibility, but
those people who live on private
-roads, they've got to get to and
from work too. I would like
to see you all adopt a policy
where you,can fix somebody's
road up and let people pay for
it-whatever the cost is, not'
try to make money off of .it,"
Tatum said.
A cayeat he added is that
work onr publicly owned roads
should not take a back seat.
There are citizens like Jose
Guach of Southeast 43rd Street,
however, who don't understand
why the\ should pay more than
the taxes they already pay in
oder to receive road assistance.
Southeast 43rd is paved, but
privately. owned and in poor
condition.
What determines whether
a 'road is public or private,
however, is ownership, and
there is a prohibition on
spending tax dollars on private
property. While Southeast
44tn can be maintained or
improved, neighboring roads
-lik-e Southeast Fifth, 42nd and,
43rd cannot. -
Under the new program,
private road residents can agree


to pay the county for roadwork
by making application through
the county manager's office.
Available services include
grading, balancing and spot
repair of the roadbed; pulling
and shaping of existing ditches;
and the placement of clay or
aggregate materials to cover
and stabilize the road.
Fees must be paid in full prior
to the commencement of work
and are the sole responsibility
of the party or parties requesting
the work. The total amount,
based on material, equipment
and labor costs, will not be
divvied up among all of the
residents on the road unless all
of the residents agree to that
arrangement.
Inordertohelpensure the road
department is not overwhelmed
with private roadwork,. repair
requests are limited in scope
to what can be accomplished
in a single 10-hour workday.
Requests for periodic or regular
service won't be accepted.
This is different than the
process established in 2003
for Municipal Service Benefit
Units, which require that a
supermajority of residents in
the benefit area agree to pay
an annual assessment over
time for periodic maintenance
or until a road is paved by a
private contractor. Paving is not
an option under the new plan.
Ironically, .it was wildfire
caused by too little rain and,
more recently, too much rain in
a short period of time that has
once again made roads a hot
topic at commission meetings.
Last month the commission
voted to make repairs on a
private road that residents said
was damaged by firefighting
and forestry equipment during
the fire and postfire cleanup,
contrary to County Manager
Jim Crawford's word that no
damage had taken place.
Citizens who have been
promised paving have also
complained that they're still
waiting years after being


placed on a road priority list,
even though state money was
used in the last fiscal year
to pave roads not on the list.
That same funding source-
money allocated based on the
county's fiscally disadvantaged
status-has been mentioned in
plans to purchase land for the
industrial park, although two
commissioners have said they
wouldn't vote for it and the
commission has been accused
of lying about the availability
of money for roads.
Crawford said transportation
funds-that is revenue
generated through the tax on
gasoline-has only been used
on roads. The county has more
discretion in using the fiscally
disadvantaged funds, however.
While it could be used on roads
as it was last year, the property
purchase is also a legitimate
choice, although discussion of
that issue is now on hold.
The need for money ro
continue maintaining and
improving roads caused
commissioners to strike a deal
during the budget planning
process. They agreed to a higher
millage rate in the short run and
. plan levy higher gasoline taxes
beginning in 2009.
Commissioner Ross Chandler
said there would never be
enough money to keep roads in
the shape.
"I don't care. how much
money they have, there's not a
county in the state that doesn't
have bad roads," Chandler
said, but acknowledged that
county road maintenance had
improved.
Saying he was in favor of
giving every citizen a decent
road to drive on, Chandler said
continued improvement and
efficiency is needed. He said
he wanted to see more money..
in the road department budget..
Chandler joined the other
four commissioners in agreeing
to approve the new private
roadwork program.

Lawtey alumni enjoy annual reunion


BY ARNIE HARRIS
Telegraph Staff Writer
On the evening of Nov. 3,
several hundred people, both
alumni of Lawtey Community
School and current residents
of that town got together at the
Starke Golf and Country Club
for their fifth annual reunion.
A.Q. Smith of Lawtey, after
opening the reunion with a
prayer, welcomed all gathered
and made clear the agenda for
the evening.
"First, we're going to have
this fabulous buffet and then
we'll do what we all came here
for- get together with our old
friends and catch up on old
times," Smith said.
Up until 1963 Lawtey
Community School was a
combined elementary and
junior high school. In 1964,
-the school became exclusively
elementary. In any case, most of
the alumni went on to graduate
from Bradford High School.
However, that was not always
thecase, said Smith.
- "Many students in the years
I: wet there were forced, due
to, economic conditions, to quit
school and go to work," said
Smith.:<
Though most of the attendees
came from the local area or
other. parts of Florida, a few
traveled a considerable distance
to be at:the reunion.
Ned riingle, a 1951 graduate
of'the Lawtey school, said he
joifrniyed nearly 1,000 miles
from'Arkansas to be there, while
nelbb, a 1957 graduate
am diagonallyy across the
U.S.,,al the way from Oregon.
"When it starts raining in
Oregon, I come here and when


(L-R) Ed Muse, William "Fay" Durban and Loule
Wainwright talk about old times at the Lawtey school
reunion.


it starts raining here I head
back to Oregon," he said.
Smith reminisced about
the time in 1963 when Miss
Universe and her retinue were
traveling north on U.S. 301
through Starke.
"When we heard about this
we got together and invited Miss
Universe and her companions to
be wined and dined in Lawtey,"
said Smith.
Smith said the pageant
winner and her party were fed
and entertained in royal style,
and after a good night's sleep
and a hardy breakfast they were
on their way.
Theideafortheannual reunion
came about after Charles and
Tom Tatum of Tatum Brothers
Lumber purchased the Golf and
Country Club in 2002.
Realizing they now
had a venue which could
accommodate hundreds of
Lawtey Community School


alumni, they began the annual
get-together in 2003.
Now in its fifth year, the
Tatums said the crowd has
increasingly grown larger each
year.
"Last year we had over 300
people," said Charles Tatum,
"and it looks like we have even
more this year."
Also in attendance were
former director of Florida
Department of Corrections, a
Lawtey graduate 1940, and his
wife, Anabel.
Tom Tatum said that the
people of Lawtey always
thought they were kind of
unique and special.
"In that sense, I guess one
could say we're clannish,",.Tom
said unapologetically. ,1 b,
"We don't care about
anyone's politics or religion,"
said Tom. "To us they're just
Lawtey folks, and that's more
than enough for us."


A covered-dish supper provided more than enough food for former Lawtey
students at a recent reunion hosted by the Starke Golf and Country Club.

the region and state have been
invited to join city leaders in a
ceremony marking the 150th
anniversary on the steps of city
hall. A time capsule courtesy of
Steve and Cindy Futch will be

items to the time capsule, which
will remain sealed -until the

Adam and Drew Wainwright received an award at the CARES Dinner. Pictured (I-r)
are John Hoblick, president of the North Florida Farm Bureau Federation, Drew
and Adam Wainwright, and Florida Commissioner of Agriculture Charles Bronson.


Wainwrights recognized by Farm Bureau


Wainwright farm operation voluntarily implemented
regulations that will become standard next year


Adam and Drew Wainwright
received an award from the
Suwannee River Partnership
and Florida Commissioner of
Agriculture Charles Bronson for
using environmentally friendly
efficient farming practices. The
Wainwright's 'were among 13
other"area farmers honored at
the CARES Recognition Dinner
on Oct. 30, 2007.-
CARES stands for County
Alliance for Responsible
Environmental Stewardship.
The CARES program is
sponsored by the Florida Farm
Bureau and the Suwannee River
Partnership.
The partnership includes
several agencies and private
firms who work together to
conserve water and manage
fertilizer use throughout
the Suwannee River Water
Management District. Major
contributors to the partnership
include Florida Department
of Agriculture, Florida Farm
Bureau, the University of Florida
and the water management
district. The district includes
'Alachua,- Bradford; Columbia,
D.xi.e ...Gilchre.s. Hamilton,


Lafayette, Levy, Madison,
Suwannee, Taylor and Union
counties.
The Wainwrights joined the
partnership in 2006 when they
voluntarily agreed to using
best management pratices,
or BMPs, in their farming
operation. BMPs are guidelines
forfertilizer, waterand pesticide
use that, if followed, produce
crops more efficiently without
polluting the environment.
The Wainwrights are the first
row crop farmers in Bradford
County to use BMPs but
that won't last long. Soon all
farmers will have to participate
in the program or the Florida
Department of Environmental
Protection will require them to
dig a well and have it monitored
to prove they are not polluting
the. groundwater by leaching
fertilizers.
Fertilizers can be watered
beyond the root zone of a
crop and can be rinsed into
surrounding watersheds. The
state has set limits (called the
total maximum daily load) that
regulate the amount of nutrient
(mainly nitrogen) that. is


allowed to exist in local rivers
on any given day. These limits
have already been defined and
the area agricultural community
at large will be held to those
standards beginning in 2008.
Farms in South Florida have
been required to use BMPs
for several years due to the
Everglades restoration project.
Most of the runoff from
Bradford County drains
towards the Sante Fe Rivetrand
so most area farms will be held
to limits established for that
basin. Most county agricultural
operations already comply with
BMPs since the forest industry
adapted those practices many
years ago and forestry is one on
the largest agricultural crops in
Bradford County.
However, because water
quality and quantity issues
are increasingly important,
other agricultural entities
including hay, poultry, cattle
and vegetable producers will
be required to participate in the
BMP program.

Local farmers get a


lesson in market success


Cut out the middleman
and keep more of the profits.
Selling direct to customers
helps local growers keep more
of the money circulating in
the area, and that's good for
everyone.
But being in business takes
planning and figuring. A dozen
potential Bradford County
SFarmers Market vendors came
to learn more about getting into
business at the "To Market,
to Market" seminar held last
month at the Bradford County
Cooperative Extension Office.
During the introduction
portion of the program, all of
the participants said they were
interested in a thriving farmers
market because they were
concerned with the quality of
the food they were serving
to their families. Most food
travels for seven to 10 days and
covers more than 3.000 miles
to get from the field to the
grocery store.;.
Others expressed a desire
to pass along an agricultural
heritage to children.
All of them also expressed
a desire to make some money
doing the things they like to
do best, from gardening to


making soap. They came to
the workshop to harvest the
tools they need to succeed in a
farmers market vendor booth.
Jim DeValerio, the extension
office horticultural agent, told
the group about statistics that
prove farmers markets are
great.
"Farmers markets are a
crucial marketing tool for small
farmers and they play a key
role in local food economies,
as well as the social life of
communities," DeValerio told
the group.
Besides fresh produce and a
thriving local economy, farmers
markets nurture community and
the environment.
"Buying locally grown food
conserves energy and other
natural resources, reduces
air and water pollution and
preserves green space. Buying
locally at farmers markets cuts.
down on the miles food travels,
the fossil fuels it consumes and
the pollution it creates. It also
cuts down on the amount of
food packaging that ends up in
landfills," he added.
Marilyn Dye, a co-founder of
the Bradford Farmers Market
and owner of Lakehouse


Nursery in Keystone Heights,
talked to the group about
"Counting the Costs" of doing
business. She started with a
target income, then using
"Enterprise Budgets" from
IFAS found at smallfarms.ifas.
ufl.edu, she'showed the group
how to calculate how much
"stuff" the vendor would have
to grow or make, and how much
of that "stuff" would have to be
sold each hour in order to reach
the target income.
Sandra "Sam" Williams, a
co-founder of the Bradford
'Farmers Market and co-owner
of Cognito Farm in Starke, set
up her market booth in the
meeting room and talked to the
group about how to interact
with customers and how to set
* up an effective display.
Sandy Rogers, market
manager for the Keystone
Heights Farmers Market talked
to the group about her market,
and invited the potential.
vendors to come sell at the
Keystone Heights Farmers
Market on Thursdays from 4-7
p.m. behind Keystone Heights
City Hall.
Much of the workshop

Currently there are 75
Farmers Markets operating

Bradford County will have its

Prepay for
college
The Florida Prepaid College
Board sold its first prepaid
plan in 1988. Since. then,
about 184,000 students have
used Florida Prepaid College
Plan benefits at universities
and colleges, and one out of
10 young Floridians, from
babies to high school students,
currently are enrolled in the
Florida Prepaid, College Plan.
The Florida Prepaid
College Board is opening its
20th annual enrollment. The
new 2007-08 Florida Prepaid
College Plan prices, posted at
www.florida529plans.com,
* are available until the sign-up
deadline, Jan. 31, 2008. The
price of a four-year university
tuition plan starts at about $3
a day for a newborn. The two-
year community college tuition
plan begins at about $1 a day.
Having a Florida Prepaid
College. Plan helps students
avoid debt at a time when two-
thirds of college graduates
are burdened with loan debts
averaging $19,202, according
to the U.S. Department of
Education's latest data.
The Florida Prepaid. College
Plan allows families to prepay
for tuition, local fees, a new
tuition differential fee and
dormitory housing at today's
plan prices. The new tuition
differential fee plan covers the
cost of this fee that eventually
may. add up to as much as
30 to 40 percent of regular
tuition at research-level state
universities.
The Florida Prepaid College
Plan is financially guaranteed
by the state of Florida, so it is
a safe way to save. Families
don't have to worry about the
stock market or remembering
to put money aside for college.


Once a child is enrolled in the
Florida Prepaid College Plan,
payments do not increase.
When a child is ready for
college, the Florida Prepaid
College Plan covers the actual
cost at any Florida public
university or community
college. If the student decides to
attend a private college, an out-'
of-state college or a vocational/
technical school, the value of
the plan may be transferred to
any eligible institution.
To qualify for a plan, the
child or the child's parent/
guardian must be a Florida
resident. Parents, grandparents,
friends and even businesses can
purchase a plan.
Families can sign up online
.or.. call ,.(80Q), 552-473, to

or Spanish and to speak with a
customer representative.

Editorial/Opinion





Florida Department of Health:

Use common sense to fight MRSA


As the Florida Department
of Health's Director of Disease
Control, I have been very
concerned about recent articles
and media reports about
infections due to methicillin-
resistant Staphylococcus
aureus (MRSA). In order to
clarify some misconceptions
and ease some fears, I would
like to provide some important
facts and some
recommendations to lower the
risk of infection. In particular,
I would like to help direct
attention away from school
children as a high-risk group-
because they are not-and
toward practical prevention
measures for everyone.
Staphylococcal infections
have been around forever.
They cause boils and other
skin and soft tissue infections.
They can also cause serious
infections-and in severe
cases even death-if the
infection spreads widely
beyond its original location.
People who are not in good
health or whose immune
systems are compromised are
particularly at risk for severe
infections.
When antibiotics were first
introduced in the 1930s and
1940s, staphylococcal
infections were the most
important targets of these new
"miracle" drugs.
Staphylococcus aureus has
repeatedly developed
resistance to the most
commonly used antibiotics as
they were introduced-first to
penicillin, then to methicillin
and now even to more' recently
introduced antibiotics. This is
one of the strongest reasons for
physicians, patients, and
parents to use antibiotics only
when they are necessary and
not for common- viral
infections. Tog. Florida
Department of Health, in
collaboration with the U.S.
Centers for Disease Control
and Prevention, started the
Florida Schools Get Smart
program in the fall of 2007,
working with school ntirses in
more than 400 schools all
across Florida, to educate
parents and children about
appropriate antibiotic use.
Most infections with
Staphylococcus aureus have
no symptoms. As many as a
quarter of all healthy children
and adults may be carriers of
this organism in their noses at
any time. According to a
recent article in the "Journal of
the American "., Medical
Association" (JAMA), most
infections (85 percent) with
this organism occur in people
who have had recent contact
with a health care facility.
According to the Centers for
Disease Control and
Prevention, staphylococcal
infections, including MRSA,
that are acquired outside the


health care setting occur most
frequently among persons
where the 5 'C's are present:
Crowding.
Contact (frequent skin-to-
skin).
Compromised skin (cuts
or abrasions).
Contaminated items and
surfaces.
Lack of Cleanliness.
Settings where these 5 'C's
may be present include
workplaces where cuts and
abrasions are common,
crowded living and working
spaces like fishing boats, jails
and prisons, and sports settings
where athletes have frequent
physical contact and share
equipment. Because so many
infections are in people
without symptoms, and the
infections may be from the
organisms they were already
carrying, we cannot identify a
source patient for most cases.
We can determine that
schools are an uncommon
setting for transmission of
Staphylococcus aureus,
including MRSA, for several
reasons. First, we do not see a
decline in MRSA infections
among children during the
summer when school is out of
session. Second, the JAMA
article shows that the incidence
rate for severe infections due
to MRSA is lowest among
school-age children, compared
to adults and seniors. The
'overall incidence rate of severe
MRSA infections for people of
all ages is 31.8 cases per
100,000 per year, but it ranges
from 1.4 in people aged 5 to
17, to 127.7 in those aged 65
and over. Third, outbreaks in
schools are rare, *and when
they do occur are among
members of certain sports
teams.
In Florida, 'the rate of
hospital discharges
(representing serious and
invasive disease) where
Staphylocodcus aureus
infection was the primary
reason for the hospital stay has
remained steady over the last
seven years, rising only
slightly from 34.24 discharges
per 100,000 population in
1999 to 35.68 in 2006.
Similarly, death rates due to
Staphylococcus aureus
infection have remained stable
over the same interval.
However, the percentage of a
statewide sample of outpatient
illnesses (representing milder,
non-invasive disease) due to
Staphylococcus aureus that are
methicillin-resistant (MRSA)
has risen from 35.1 percent in
2003 to 50.0 percent in 2006.
Prevention of staph
infections is so simple that
many people do not iniagine it
could be effective-but it is:
Wash hands frequently,

See MRSA page 9A


MRSA highlights
importance of
hygiene
The Florida Department of
Health (DOH) reminds
Floridians of the importance of
proper hygiene to prevent the
spread of MRSA (methicillin-
resistant Staphylococcus
aureus), the common cold,
influenza and a number of
other infections.
Research published recently
in the Journal of the American
Medical Association estimates
there are more than 94,000
MRSA infections and 18,000
deaths in the U.S. each year.
MRSA no longer appears
solely in healthcare settings..It
is becoming more common in
the community since its
appearance.in the 1960s.
Roger' Sanderson, an
epidemiologist with the
Department of Health, said the
article points out a serious
problem.
"There is no single measure
that can address MRSA and
associated mortality," he said.
"It is going to take a multi-
disciplinary approach."
MRSA is a type 'of
Staphylococcus (stih)
resistant to some antibiotics.
While 25-30 percent of the
population is a carrier of staph,
approximately 1 percent is
afflicted with MRSA.
Most staph and MRSA
infections are treatable with
antibiotics.
Staph infections, including
MRSA, occur most frequently
among people in hospitals and
healthcare facilities (such as
nursing home- and dialysis
centers) who have weakened
immune systems. These
healthcare-associated staph
infections include surgical
wound infections, urinary tract
infections, bloodstream
infections and pneumonia.
'In the community, MRSA is
most often associated with skin
infections, but may 'also
include more serious and life-
threatening infections.
Any disease .outbreak or
cluster in a community is
considered reportable and the
Department of Health has
established a surveillance
program aimed at MRSA in
the 'community. The
Department of Health is
currently developing further
surveillance to look for severe
cases of MRSA infection in
the community.
The Florida Department of
Health highlights the following
precautions recommended by
the Centers, for Disease
Control and Prevention:
Keep your hands clean by
washing thoroughly with soap

BY BUSTER RAHN
Editorial Writer
The winter and spring of
1954-55 were times of fear and
discontent for parents of small
children because of the
poliomyelitis (polio) epidemic.
Poliomyelitis was formerly
known as infantile paralysis
for its propensity to strike
young children, but young
adults and teenagers were also
vulnerable.
My wife and I, with three
children ages 10, 8 and 4, were
frightened and felt helpless
because there was little
medical science offered other
than physical therapy if the
child survived the onslaught of
the disease. We were no longer
reading about the disease in
far-away places; it had come to
Jackson County (Florida),
where we were living at the
time, and parents of stricken
children were friends.
On a Sunday morning in
March of 1955, we heard that a
child of friends had contracted
polio. Shortly after lunch we
heard -the screaming cry of a
siren piercing the quiet Sunday
afternoon as an ambulance
raced by on the highway,
followed by the family car. We
knew' the child was being
rushed to Memorial Hospital in
Tallahassee, 80 miles away. A
few months earlier, neighbors
living behind us had lost a
child to polio, a sad situation


that heightened our fears and
concerns for possible victims,
including our own three
children.
About that time, we began to
read and hear about
experiments of Dr. Jonas Salk
in attempting to find a vaccine
against the polio virus. Our
information came by radio,
newspapers and magazines,
since television wasn't
widespread in the area. Only
three television channels were
available (Dothan, Ala.,
Tallahassee and one other),
sending signals received via
tall antennas that required
turning toward the station for
picture quality. Color TV was
light years away.
To say we hungrily awaited
news .of Dr. Salk's
experiments is an
understatement, with prayers
and hopes beyond belief for
positive results. After weeks
and months of waiting, news
came that vaccine testing had
begun in 1954, using two
million children in blind tests,
and the outcome would be
made known in April of 1955.
An announcement was
expected on an April Sunday
afternoon, and finally we were
told the tests results were in
and the Salk vaccine had
proven successful for
combating the crippling and
often fatal disease. Public
health departments must have


had advance information,
because throughout the nation
supplies of the vaccine were
stockpiled in every community
with medical personnel and
others standing by to hand out
sugar cubes laced with the
miracle drug. We,- with our
children, went, to. the Malone
schoolhouse, joined by
hundreds of local people, and
received the anti-polio vaccine.
Dr. Salk was the nation's hero,
more especially since he did
not patent the vaccine, but
freely gave up his financial
interest for the benefit of
humanity.
Americans born since 1950
have no concept of the ravages
suffered as result of polio and
the fear engendered in all
circles of society. Polio was
non-selective in its victims and
worldwide in its scope, but
Africa felt the brunt of its
terrible toll as the plague swept
across its wide expanse, not
unlike- the AIDS virus of
recent years. The good news is
that the vaccine accomplished
its mission and the rate of
incidence dropped 85-90
percent in the next two years
(1956-57) and by 1965 there
were only 61 cases reported in
the United States. In 1994 the
United States declared the
disease eradicated within its
borders and four years later the-

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR: "


Politics

shouldn't be

in the Lord's
house
Dear Editor:
As a Christian, I don't
believe that politics should be
a concern during worship
service. I have heard ministers
advise their members on how
to vote, and have heard them
make catty remarks about the
political parties.
Not everyone who attends
church is a Republican or
Democrat. There is always a
mixture of both. As a
Democrat and a Christian, I
don't appreciate the catty
remarks that are made about
the Democratic party.
Both parties have their
faults. Both parties are guilty
of wrong doing. The Bible tells
us that God's commandment is
that we love one another as he
has loved us. In St. John 8:7,
he tells the people at the well
concerning the woman, "Who
is without sin cast the first
stone." No one could cast a
stone because they had sin in
their lives just as the woman.
In the United States, people
have .a right to choose a
political party. That's good and
their business. No one should
stand in judgment on a
political party in God's house.
God loves everyone, no matter
what political stand we have.
I have my opinion of the
Republican party, but I respect
the fact that everyone
doesn't feel as I do.
How we vote should not
concern anyone but us, if a
person ask a minister his
opinion then he should give it,
but not in church services.
Worship services are for the
Lord.

Concerned

about ESE
Dear Editor:
I would like to express my
concerns about the ESE
(Exceptional Student
Education) special needs
students that are in Bradford
County schools. , .
I recently discovered that if
you: have achild' that as
special needs and you want
that child to receive a regular
diploma, that child must
maintain a 2.0, grade point
average and-according to
what is listed on that child's
IEP (Individual Education
Plan)-the child must take the
FCAT and, in 'some cases,
must pass.
If you elect for your child to
get a certificate of attendance,
your child will go to school for
12 years and receive a paper
stating that your child
attended school for 12 years. I
really do not know how the
certificate of attendance will
assist that child in' finding a job
or even going to college.
I have not read an
application for employment
requesting a certificate of
attendance. They normally ask
if you received a diploma.
We, as grandparents and
parents, should check out the
benefits of the McKay
Scholarship from the
Department of Education. It
will give your child the
opportunity to attend a private
school of your choice and
graduate with a degree. Make
sure you check the private
school out before you elect to
use it.

What is

'Secular

Progressive

Movement'?
Dear Editor:
David Dodd says, "The
'Secular Progressiv.e
Movement' in this country
must be stopped." What in the
world is a Secular Progressive
Movement supposed to be'?
This country was founded
on a secular document-The
United States Constitution-


and has always been ruled by
secular laws.
As far as not being able to
pray in school, no one is
stopping anyone from praying
in school, as long as it's done
silently. As far as I know, no
one has ever been arrested for
saying "Merry Christmas" or
celebrating the pagan rite of'
Christmas openly.
And maybe Mr. Dodd could
cite some of the "many school
districts throughout the nation"
that "keep the children from
saying the Pledge ofl


Allegiance to our flag because
the phrase 'under God' is part
of the pledge." This is the first
I've heard of such a thing.
As for "praying as we wish,"
that, according to Jesus, has
never been an option. He
specifically directed you to "go
into your closet" when you
pray. Nowhere in the Bible did
he say .to pray anywhere else,
much less at public-supported
(secular) schools or school
functions.
What Mr. Dodd, like most
Christians, wants is to do away
with our secular Constititution
and secular laws so Christians
can do whatever they like,
wherever, and to foist the
Christian religion on everyone
in the country.
As for condemning
drunkenness, doesn't Mr.
Dodd find it quite odd that
God did not condemn Noah's
drunkeness?' (Instead, he let
Noah lay a curse on an
innocent person.) Nor did he
condemn Lot and his
daughters, who committed
incest during his drunkenness.

Let's take our
government

back with

home rule
Dear Editor:
Just a couple of questions,
have you received your
property tax bill? If you
haven't don't fret over it
because it is coming. Next
question, do you think that you
are getting your money's
worth? If you are like me, you
are trying to make ends meet
and not quite doing it.
We just can't see why the
county government is getting
bigger and bigger while our
small savings is getting smaller
and smaller.
The county administrators
continue to distort the truth
about the availability of road
funds, wanting to spend road
monies for another industrial
park and meeting behind
closed doors, trying to obtain a
playground near Santa Fe
Lake; not to mention a bypass
from highway 100 to highway
301 south.
o think that it is.ti e tp tak
our government back, a
establish a home rule
When people who run for
office tells us a pack of lies
just to get our vote' and for the
most part don't even know us
when elected to office. It is
time that we seize the
opportunity that the 'Florida
constitution gives us and
establish a Home Rule.
You and I are able by
petition to establish a charter
commission that will, through
public hearings, contain
exactly the way that you and I
want our government.to be.
A home rule charter can
prevent taxes and assessments
without the. voter's approval.
It can allow for recall elections
where we are not satisfied with
a commissioner's
performance. .It can specify
exactly how our monies can be
used and many, many other
budgetary controls. Or if the
charter commission finds that
the majority of the people likes
things the way they are, then
the government will be left the
way it is
When you are approached to
sign a petition to establish a
charter commission, look in
your heart and pocket book
and go with the way you want
it to go.
Call me if you think that I
can be of help.

Animals being

killed for

amusement

disturbs us
Dear Editor:
Recent you ran a picture of
a local couple proudly smiling
beside their trophy elk.
We're hoping that we're not
the only ones disturbed by this
horrible photo of a magnificent
animal brought to its knees in
an unfair and unnatural death.
Justice would have been
well-served had this elk been


able to rear up and strike both
of them dead with its mighty
hooves.
Shame on those among us
who feel animals are here on
this earth to be put on their
walls, dinner tables, chained or
tied up, put in cages, let loose
to roam on the streets or on
other people's property or
beaten and otherwise abused.
If only the tables were
turned On these cowards.

Watch that

appetite-itis
, Dear Editor:
It's hard not to notice how
fat and unhealthy-looking a lot
of us local boys and girls are
getting these days. Some of us
are so huge that if we had to
haul our fanny in a hurry, we
would have to make at least
two trips and we still could
leave some behind.
As Americans we have the
right to pass the blame of the
extra weight-gain onto anyone
or anything we want. It's our
guaranteed right, so let the
blaming game begin. .
Sonny's is a good start.
Maybe even the steakhouse.
Hey, how about that new one
that just opened, IHOP? How
dare these fine restaurants force
me to eat all seven pieces of
that wonderful southern fried
chicken, with three starchy
sides?
Most all people who are
struggling with weight issues
seem to have a frame problem,
because when their elbow
bends they most often open
their mouths.
We need to stop the blame
train and disembark into a
healthier culture, because our
communities are plum full of
sick, fat citizens with high
blood pressure, heart disease,
and many more weight-related
illnesses. The only person who
benefits from our fat cells on
steroids is the doctor and, of
course, the undertaker.
I want all your loyal readers
to understand that by no means
am I fat-bashing. Heck, I look
like I've had too many buckets
of "please keep your shirt on,"
so I'm no runway male model.
I'm just another health-
concerned, pudgy guy.
The rising cost of. health
insurance and the added stress
we put on our loved ones when
they see how being overweight,
along with serious. health
issues, affects us, should make
us think before we supersizee"
our next Mickey D's order.
Educating ourselves and our
family about healthy food
selection, along with
reasonable exercise habits
could prevent serious health
dilemmas in the future.
I believe that parents need to
make smarter food decisions
and"setf healthier household
stanrilds, bfiCrseO 1ytWVl6fRit
you may end up facing a
situation like I found myself in
with our young niece and a
pony in front of a food store.
She wanted to ride the pony
and we sat her in the saddle.
All of a sudden, the small pony
began to buck with a
vengeance that shook her little
four-foot body all the way
down to her toes.
I could she the desperate
look in her wide blue eyes, and
the excitement in her small
round face. I watched in horror,
since I was too fat and out of
shape to stop the black beauty
with flared nostrils, so the only
thing I could do was thrust
myself on the pony's rump. The
bucking was violent and I
recognized the fact that my
pride was in serious jeopardy
and I was waiting for my life
to flash before eyes.
I was so out of shape, that
there was nothing I could do
but hold on. Then my wife
reached down and unplugged
it.
Some of us have that
dreadful disease, appetite-itis,
which, if not treated, could lead
to fat attacks. The cure is
almost simple, and did you
notice I said almost? Because
when you get to be rny age,
nothing is simple, although
diet and workouts-along with
eating less fried food, honey
buns, cornbread, and everything
else that tastes good-will
surely help. So if, you see me
grazing in the field with some
cows, just wave.

World Health Organization set
a goal of eradicating polio
around the world. While
progress has been made, it
remains endemic in Africa,
and the goal has not been
attained completely.
Possibly the best-known
individual to become a victim
of polio was Franklin Delano
Roosevelt (1882-1945), who
was stricken in 1921 at age 39,


and suffered paralysis of both
legs. In spite of his handicap,
he was elected president of the
United States in 1932 and was
re-elected for three more
terms. Many people didn't
realize the extent of his
disability, but he could not
stand-withQout the heavy steel
braces, and could not walk. He
was rarely photographed in a
wheelchair, preferring to
belittle the charge that he was
disabled physically. While
president he inaugurated the
"March of Dimes," a program
that raised millions of dollars
in the fight against polio.
Egyptian paintings and


carvings depict children with
withered limbs and using
walking canes, indicating the
malady was known to
civilization before Christ, and
the Greeks gave us the name
"poliomyelitis" which refers to
inflammation of the spinal
cord. While it was known
more than 2,000 years ago, it
didn't affect a large number of
children, who were exposed to
constant unsanitary conditions.
The exposure built up
immunity to the virus
augmented by their mother's
breast feeding, but the
immunity was lost when
sanitation measures cleaned
living conditions. The
improved living conditions of
the late 19i" and early 20'h
centuries allowed immunity to
decline and allowed a dramatic
increase of -polio in 1920,
which would continue for 35
years.
Rotary takes up
challenge
Fighting a worldwide
disease composed of three
separate viruses required the
commitment of a worldwide
organization with the will and
resources to match the
unrelenting enemy. Few
organizations have the
necessary mix of people on the
ground around the world and
financial means to mount such
a program, with a single
exception; Rotary
International. In 1985, RI
accepted the challenge to
immunize every child in the
world and eradicate the,
dreaded disease. Since the
program began 22 years ago,
more than two billion children
have been immunized, with an
estimated five million spared
disability and 250,000 deaths
prevented. Rotary has
expended $600 million on the
program.
Rotary is a civic
organization founded in
Chicago in 1907 by Attorney
Paul Harris and quickly spread
to other cities and communities
across the nation. It's
membership is drawn from the
business community and was
operated as a male bastion
until 1995 when bylaws were
rewritten to include female
business leaders. In' order to
represent diversified interests,
membership limits the number
of members from each type of
business, although a business
may have subtitles, such as the
many divisions of insurance,
life insurance, fire insurance,
alittmbtive irsurance eic. By
limiting the number of
members within a category, no
one faction can control a club.
The founders of Rotary
looked beyond fellowship
alone, and determined the club
ihust...have a sustainable
underlying base for long-term
existence, choosing two basic
ideals, "Service above self,"
and "He or she profits most
who serves best." These ideals
guided Rotarians in business
transactions as the
organization expanded
throughout the United States,
and around the world. Rotary
now has 1.2 million, members
in 32,000 clubs including 51
clubs in Russia. Clubs are
located in 200 nations,
spanning the globe.
In living up to it's ideal of
service, RI does not go it alone
or claim a monopoly in
providing assistance. In its
program to eradicate polio,
Rotary has enlisted the
cooperation of the Red Cross
and World Health
Organization, both of which
have their own agendas and
area of expertise. When
disaster strikes anywhere in the
world, the three organizations
will be there with personnel
and supplies.
RI requires substantial funds
to carry out its mission of
helping others, and has
established the Rotary
Foundation, funded only by
member contributions. It is a
not-for-profit corporation to
enable Rotarians to advance
world understanding, goodwill
and peace through the
improvement of health, the
support of health, the support
of education and alleviation of
poverty. Each member may
contribute $1,000, strictly
voluntarily, to become a
"Rotary Fellow," and become
more than just a bystander in


serving people in need,
worldwide.
The Starke Rotary Club was
formed in 1937 and has served
the community for 70 years,
supporting community
endeavors and funding
scholarships. The names of
past presidents form a roster of
business leaders that were.
instrumental in shaping the
community, its government, its

Backpack: A student's pain in the neck?


BY ARNIE HARRIS
Telegraph Staff Writer
Perhaps gone are the days
when little Bobby offered to
carry little Sally's books to
school. These days, Bobby is
having enough trouble getting
his own materials to school,
thank you.
But major studies conducted
over the last decade by
pediatricians and child health
professionals in regard to the
possible harmful effects of
backpacks present strikingly
contradictory findings.
A disputed study
For example, a 1999-2000
study by the U.S. Consumer
Product Safety Commission,
later seriously disputed, found
that only six percent of the
sample of 247 children, with
an average age of 11.8 years,
suffered back pain as a result
of carrying school backpacks.
The remaining 94 percent of
injuries, the study found,
involved those of other parts of
the body (in descending
percentage): head and face,
hand, wrist/elbow, shoulder
and foot/ankle. These injuries,
according to the study, were
caused by students being hit
with a backpack being used as
a weapon or tripping over it.
Injuries to the wrist, hand
and fingers were attributed to
students rummaging through
the bag in search of a specific
book or item, and cutting their
fingers or spraining their hands
or wrists.
Dissenting
studies
However, other studies, as
reported in the journal Spine
reject the methodology of the
CPSC study. The main flaw
seen in that study is that it is
based on children reporting to
emergency rooms as a result of
back pain.
As Ryan Lockwood of
ChiroWeb.com commented on
this factor, "Imagine all the
kids who may have back pain
from packs, but whose parents
don't deem it severe enough to
go to an emergency room.",
Several studies subsequently
conducted in Europe arrived
at startlingly different
conclusions. Lockwood cites a
study done in Italy that found,
that "backpack related
activities led to low back pain
in almost half of the students;
fou r 6out of five felt their
backpacks were heavy; and
two-thirds responded that they
felt fatigue when parrying
their backpacks."
Another 2001 study in
Denmark, as again reported in
Spine magazine, found that 39
percent reported back pain and
most of those reported
consequences such as visiting
a -physician, refraining from
physical activities, or staying
home from school.
Results from a study
conducted in Finland, and
reported in the British Medical
Journal in 2002, found that
chronic back and neck pain
may be increasing in
adolescents.
"Based on this Finnish study
conducted between 1985 and
1997, back and heck pain
doubled in girls and increased
150 percent in boys, ages 14-
18."
Yet another inquiry
conducted stateside in 2003 by
the Association of Backpack
Use and Back Pain in
Adolescents, came up with
more disturbing findings.
As published in Spine in
2003 and summarized by
Medscape.com, "Of 1,122
backpack users, ages 12-18,
74.4 percent were classified as
having back pain, validated by
significantly poorer health,
more limited physical
functioning and more bodily
. pain."
The study also found that
back pain was directly related
to gender, and the percentage
of an individual student's body
weight that is being carried in
his/her backpack.


give back something to the
community. Rotarians meet
and dine together one day a
week, and listen to a speaker
expound on a timely subject
for about 20 minutes. Guest
speakers come from every
walk of life and present
information about industry,


schools, hobbies, sports,
government and medicine.
Speakers are usually well
informed about their chosen
subject, keeping Rotarians
informed on local issues as
well as topics from far afield.
There. is a strong camaraderie
among Rotarians, although
Rotary is far from being a
social club. There is work to
be done, and like the military,
when assignments are made,
there are no excuses.


Interviews with parents in
Bradford County apparently
support the conclusions of the
foreign studies.
Sherree Alvarez, a teacher
and parent, said that she
weighed the backpack her 48-
pound daughter-who was
experiencing back pain- had
to carry to school and found it
totaled 28 pounds. This is
more than 20 pounds over
what is recommended by
pediatric professionals.
Another parent, Patty
Brooks, said her 8-year-old
son attending Starke
Elementary complained of
back and shoulder pain last
year. Brooks said her son is
trying a different type of bag
this year, with the hope that it
will remedy the problem.
Furthermore, Starke
chiropractor Dr. Virgil Berry,
said he is very concerned
about the number of young
people he is seeing in his
office for back and shoulder
in.
reventative
measures
According to Dr. Claudia
Anrig, writing at
ChiroWeb.com, though
healthcare professionals do not
agree on exact weight, the
consensus is that, a child
burdened with more than 10
percent of his or her body
weight risks back and neck
pain... and a'child carrying
more than 15 percent or more
of his/her body weight can
suffer from severe back back,
neck and shoulder pain,
headaches and other spinal
dis omfort-not to mention
aggravate pre-existing spinal
conditions such as scoliosis:
Anrig had several suggestions
as to what parents can do in
light of this information: "
1) With attention to the 15
percent rule, parents should
weigh their child's backpack at
least once a week-if it should
exceed 15 percent of the
child's body weight, the parent
should work with the child to
determine how the backpack's
weight can be lessened.
2) Parents should show their
children. the importance of
loading and carrying their
backpack appropriately. The
heaviest items should rest
against the back, which means
aemopjinp t ribuie then d
weight evenly.'.
3) Wearing the back pack
over one shoulder,'as a fashion
statement is damaging to the
developing spine. The only
proper way to carry the
backpack is with both straps
over the shoulders and the
backpack resting against the
lower back.
4) When selecting a
backpack, parents should, give
priority to function over
fashion. Choosing a backpack


with the latter factor in mind
can, over long usage, lead to
improper spinal alignment,
poor posture, and eventually
pain for their child.
5) Parents should look for
backpacks with hip straps or
lumbar (lower part of back)
pillows. The former can
distribute a portion of the
weight to the hips, easing the
load on the spine and
shoulders. Lumbar pillows
provide necessary back
supports to the lumbar region,
where the greatest portion of
weight is being carried.

6) As for roller bags, they
may not be the answer parents
are looking for, since an empty
one weighs 80 percent more
than an empty backpack.
Furthermore, since these bags
run larger, they may invite the
oWfal to overload the~'iempty
space&,s mch atsn50 pot'ifd!
Plds,"aldthbligh these bags roll,
the student is still at risk when
carrying the bag up or down
stairs, or lifting it from the
back seat of the car.
Bradford school

Assistant Superintendent,
Lisa Prevatt said in regard to
this situation that the
administrators at the schools
are aware of this problem, and
instruct the-teachers to do as

much as possible to decrease
the number of heavy books the
children must carry.

"The problem is lockers,"
said Prevatt. "In the middle
and high school levy,, tihe
students have l.ockrs
available, so that this is not
such a problem."
However, she concede 'that
that's a different story in the'
elementary schools.
"In the elementary schools
there are no lockers
available-furthermore it
would be cost prohibitive to
have a class set of books'in
every room. However, we do
encourage the elementary
school teachers to make
arrangements among
themselves that would
effectively lowei the number
of books students must carry
on any given day.". ,
.Prfevatt suggested'thar many
students may be unknowingly
carrying more books than are
necessary, relating the story of
one overloaded student, who,
when questioned, realized he
didn't need all Jhe books he
was carrying.
Otherwise Prevatt endorsed
the helpful suggestions
mentioned above, and asked
parents to look into 'the types
of bags that would alleviate the

Curtis White, Minister of
the Church of Christ in
Lawtey, would like to say
greetings to all of
Bradford County in
Christian Love. Once
again, I ask that you
would not be offended,
but do take the time to
investigate the Word of
God for yourself.
Today I would like to
speak to you concerning
THE One True Church.

The writer says in Psalm 127:1 That except
the Lord build the house, they labour in vain
that build it.
Later in Matt 15:13 Jesus says every plant
which my Heavenly Father hath not planted,
shall be rooted up. This statement abolishes the
doctrine of attending the church of your choice.
For Christ has but one church Eph 4:4, I Cor
12:13. So the question is, Are you in a man
. made house? or, Are you in the house of Christ,
the one He purchased by the shedding of His
own blood (Acts 20:28).
Let me show you some identifiable marks of
The Lord's Church. Now remember the
Hebrew writer says in Heb. 3:4 that every
house is built by some man. Now thisis is very
important, because Christ has His own house,
Heb. 3:6, and men have their owri religious
houses.
Which one are you in? The answer is in the
scripture:
#1. The church that you are in, who is it's
founder? Where did it come from? Who is it's
head? For Christ's Church originated around
33 A.D. in the City of Jerusalem on the day of
Pentecost with Christ being it's Founder,
Purchaser Acts 20:28, Builder Matt 16:18,
Head Eph. 5:23, Lawgiver Acts 2:36, and
Savior of His Church Eph. 5:23. (Did your
church begin in Jerusalem?)
#2. What about it's name? Many believe
today that there's nothing in a name. Only in
religion is this the case. Why is it that a name
means something when it is on a Deed. Title.
License, Check or Legal Documents?
If there is nothing in a name, it would make

Curtis L. White, minister


no difference whether you called a man a liar, or
a gentleman. Names were significant in earlier
Bible Times, as they are today. What name does
the church you are affiliated with wear? Is it
authorized by God?
To wear man made and human names are
condemned I Cor 1:10-13. It detracts from
Christ's honor by giving glory to some man,
system, ordinance, etc.
Christ called His House The Church of Christ,
Rom 16:16, The Church of God, I Cor 1:2;
10:32, The Church, Acts 2:47, I Tim 5:16, The
House of Prayer, Matt 21:13, and so on.
Has your church name been authorized by
God?
#3. It's worship practice must be in Spirit
and in Truth, John 4:24.
Communion Every Sunday, I Cor. 10:16, 11:20-
30; Acts 20:7
Singing, Eph. 5:18-19, Col 3:16, Heb. 13:15, 1
Cor 14:15
Praying. Acts 2:42, IThess 5:17, 25
Giving, I Cor 16:1-2; II Cor 9:7
Teaching, Acts 2:42; I Tim 3:15
Does your church worship only in these acts?
In Christ's House we are called Brethren, 3
John 5, James 5:7; Saints Col 1:2; Phil 4:21-22,
Priests I Peter 2:5, No Reverends, only God ps
111:9 KJV. No religious fathers Matt 23:9,
No mothers of the church, Gal 4:26. For
Jerusalem is the mother of all the saints. All
called Christians. Acts 11:26.

have stated, please feel free to call or write me at
any time c/o Church of Christ, P.O. Box 438,

The Church at Lawtey awaits your visit, a
church for all people, of all races.

It was only appropriate the

big role in the existence of the

approximately $150,000.

Department of
Corrections
employees line
up for lunch,
including Ryan
Sellers
(foreground),
who works at
New River
Correctional
Institution.


Maj. Willaim C.F. Muse of Florida State Prison talks with Bradford County School
Board member Vivian Chappell.


DOC
Continued from p. 1B
envisioned when he toured the
building before work began.
"Once you see the finished
product and see what's here,
you-can't do anything but say
L' thtnk you and be appreciative
of the Department of
"'Corrections for the work you
'guys did," Cooper said.
:'"The' conference center may
have been the central theme of
the luncheon, but the
Department of Corrections'
overall benefit to local
'coittunities and the working
relationship it has with those
communities was also
recognized.
t. Miller said all one has to do
-iS drive through Starke or any
of the surrounding
communities to see what those
public work squads have
-aeceomplished: Tlifat was a
point emphasized by Carolyn
Spooner, a Starke city
commissioner who represents
District 2. Spooner said public
work squads have transformed
her district, which she said
used to be referred to as "the
ghetto," to a "nice
community."
"It has changed the image,"
she said. "For that, I want to
say thank you."
Other Starke commissioners,
along with county
I representatives, talked of what-
a benefit public work squads
were for their communities.'
They provide a cost savings,
which prompted Vivian
Chappell, a Bradford County
school board member, to say,
"We really could not survive
lots of times if we didn't have
you guys out there. Any time
you have any extra you want to
send, we will never turn you
down."
Miller said, "If it wasn't for
that manpower, the cities,
county and school board would


have to come up with more
bucks than you can imagine."
The department has an
impact, however, that exceeds
the work performed by public
work squads, Miller said,
referring to the fact that DOC
employees spend their money
at local businesses.
"Every two weeks on state
payday, you see additional
traffic up and down 301,"
Miller said. "The cash registers
of the merchants are ringing.
That payroll's important to
Bradford County. We
appreciate it."
Miller and Cooper also
shared their appreciation for
DOC employees' efforts in a
tough job and work
environment. Cooper recalled
working on the E floor of the
main housing unit at Union
Correctional Institution at the
age of 18.
"You learn firsthand, it's not
a gregt, environment," he said.
"It's a difficult environment.
You really appreciate the jobs
you guys have to do."
Added Miller: "We know
that you guys don't have the
easiest job in the world. Every
one of you at some point in
time in the work week will be
in some danger. We appreciate
that also."
Mark Redd, the director of
DOC's Region II, said helping
the communities in which they
are located is what DOC is all
about.
"We're very 'proud to do'the
serviceses" he said. "We wish
we could do more. We feel as
if we should give back to the
community."
Redd said the department's
working relationship with the
community is a two-way
street. It takes two parties to
successfully pull off such a
relationship, he said, but
nonetheless, he was
appreciative of the kind words
expressed during the luncheon.
After all, there isn't anybody
who doesn't like to receive a

"We're a big family 'in the

Redd said. "It's always good
when you hear positive, good
things about your family."
During the luncheon, Ron
Lilly, the director of the North
Florida Regional Chamber of
Commerce, outlined the
upcoming renovations to the
conference center, including
the addition of a portable
dance floor, stage lighting,
Internet access, cameras and
8,200 square feet that will
encompass a full-service
kitchen and a ball room.
Landscaping, paving and the
addition of a front entryway
with a pitched roof. are .so
planned renovations. "
Lilly expressed his desire to
continue the cooperative
relationship with DOC that
was so instrumental in
bringing the conference center
to where it is today.
"It was really great working
with you all," he said. "We
look forward to another long
relationship with you guys.
Again, we hope it goes both
ways in that if you need
anything from us, you'll pick
up the phone and call us."

you can have a lot of fun. And
when you have fun, you can do
amazing things."

Sunday crash
leaves traffic
snarl on U.S.
301
A crash Sunday, Nov. 4, at
5:20 p.m. on U.S. 301 just
north of the Market Road
.intersection sent the driver to
the hospital.
William James Coleman,
62, of Jacksonville was
transported by Medic One to
Shands University in critical
condition. As of press time his
condition had been upgraded to
stable.
Coleman apparently suffered
a heart attack. There were no
indications of an attempt to
stop, no skid marks or braking,
according to Major Jeff
Johnson and Patrolman Jason
Crosby.
Coleman's 2006 Chevrolet
funeral home transport van was
travelling northbound on U.S.
301 in the outside lane. The
van drifted across the lane and
into the inside lane, clipping a
motor home pulling a trailer.
The van continued across the
median and the southbound
lanes before hitting a Florida
Power and Light pole multiple
times in multiple places,
Major Johnson said.
The northbound travel lanes
became two-way and traffic was
rerouted until 4:30 a.m. Nov.
5.
FP&L estimated the cost of
replacing the pole was
$70,000.
Estimated damage to the
motor home was $150.

GAL looking
for guardian
angels
The Eighth Judicial Circuit
Guardian ad Litem Program is
currently representing more
than 900 children who have
been abused or neglected and
are involved in the
Dependency Court process.
Most of them have been
removed from their parents'
custody and are living in a
foster home or with relatives.
All of them want to have as
normal a life as possible while
going through this traumatic
time. The majority miss out on
field trips, school sports
participation, camp and many
other activities due to financial
lack.
If you would like to make a
difference in a child's life and
don't have time to be a
Guardian ad Litem volunteer,
the Guardian Angels Program
is for you. A Guardian Angel
will sponsor a child financially
to help provide the "extras"
that will help brighten up their
life.
There is no requirement of
how much you have to spend.
For more information about
this exciting new program,
please contact Clarksori


Cantrell at (352) 374-3656.

NO DEPOSIT, NO RETURN!
AmrcnDrepmoo rtesit.FoiaIc


When buying a home,
would you consider asking the
sellers to "hold" their home off
the market without offering to
give them a deposit? As a sell-
er, would you take your home
"off the market" for purchasers
who were unwilling to give
you a sum of money as a
deposit'?
In both cases, the answer is
probably "No!" A very impor-
tant message is communicated
from buyer to seller by the so-
called "earnest money
deposit." It is understandably
common for homebuyers to
want to offer as small a deposit
as possible when signing an
agreement to purchase a home,
and just as common for the
sellers to want as large a sumn
as possible to be placed on


deposit.
Here's why the amount
offered can be so important.
For the buyers, one way to
impress the sellers with their
sincerity is by offering a high-
er than normal deposit. Their
willingness to go beyond the
minimum requirements is a
positive indicator that they
plan to complete the purchase
on time and as agreed.
From the sellers' point of
view, a solid offer to purchase
from buyers when accomipa-
nied by a substantial deposit -
can quickly become an attrac-
tive offer, one which is easy to
accept. In a nutshell, a larger
than expected earnest money
.deposit can yield a positive
return for both homchuyers
and sellers!

Indians top host Tornadoes 10-0 in defensive battle


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Wr-iterr
Points and yards were hard
to come by in the District 3-2A
nmaichuip between the Bradford
and Kecstone Heights high
school football teams, but the
visiting Indians did just
enough to defeat the
lornadoes 10-0 on Nov. 2 in
Slarke.
"It wasn't pretty but we got
it in the end zone," Keystone
he~ad coach ('Chuck Dickinson
said.
Ke .stone (7-2, 5-2 in
District 3) scored the game's
lone touchdown on a 2-yard
run by Greg Taylor with 54
seconds remaining in the first
quarter. That would be the
only scoring until Keystone's
Brad Gober kicked a 36-yard
field goal at the 5:28 mark of
the fourth quarter.
The teams combined for 253
yards of offense and had just
six first downs each.


Keystone's rushing tandem
of ''aylor and Malt Story, who
each have more than 1,000
yards, were held to 62 and 41
yards, respectively.
Dickinson said lie expected
the going would be tough for
his offense against the
Tornadoes (5-4, 4-3).
"There haven't been a whole
lot of scores on (Bradford) this
year when you take Bolles
away," he said, referring to the
fact Bradford entered the game
giving up just eight points per
game if you discount that
Bolles outcome.
Bradford head coach Steve
Hoard said it was an
accomplishment to hold
Keystone to 10 points. That
happened despite the fact the
Tornadoes had to overcome
injuries to their two outside
linebackers.
What bothered Hoard was
the fact some players drew
dead-ball penalties when the


Bradford's Adrian Mosley (left) hangs on as he

Story.



Keystone caps

season on the road

against Citrus


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
Three 1,000-yard rushers
will take to the field in
Inverness this Friday, Nov. 9,
at 7:30 p.m. when the
Keystone Heights football
team takes on Class 3A Citrus
to cap the season.
Indians fans already know
about their team's rushing duo
of Matt Story and Greg Taylor.
Citrus has a standout running
back of its own in sophomore
Antoin Scriven, whom Citrus
head coach Rik Haines-in a
St. Petersburg Times story-
said "has a chance to be he
best running back in the state
of Florida." Scriven has'rushed
for 1,071 yards and eight
touchdowns this season,
averaging 119 yards per game
and 7 yards per carry. He
rushed for 1,470 yards and 17
touchdowns last year.
The Hurricanes have some
speed on their team. Scriven
runs a 4.55 40, but is not the
fastest player on his team. That
honor goes to sophomore wide
receiver Derek Paquette, who
has 432 yards on 18


receptions.
Paquette and Colt Carlson, a
senior wide receiver who runs
a 4.6 40, are averaging 21
yards per kickoff return.
Still, despite some offensive
talent, the Hurricanes have not
defeated an opponent with a
winning record. Citrus is
currently 5-4 and coming off a
35-7 win over a 2-7 Hernando
team.
The team entered the season
with an inexperienced offense
for the most part, with most of
its linemen having only one
start prior to this season and
sophomore Cameron. West
stepping in for graduate Walter
Howard at quarterback. West
has completed 35-of-64 passes
for 577 yards and four
touchdowns. He has three
interceptions.
Citrus is scoring an average
of 20 points per game, while
opponents are scoring 17 per
game.
Carlson is one of the key
players on defense. He has a
team-leading 82 tackles. David
Green leads the team with five
interceptions.


Tornadoes could ill afford
them. During one third-quarter
drive, Bradford had just picked
up a first down at the Keystone
43 after an 8-yard run by
Jernard Beard, but a personal
foul call backed the Tornadoes
up to their own 42. They
eventually punted the ball.
On the Tornadoes' next
drive, they overcame two
penalties to pick up a first
down at their own 30, but
another personal foul penalty
pushed them back to the 20.
Again, they eventually punted
the ball away.
"Some of our kids lost their
composure," Hoard said. "That
really bothers me because we
don't do that much. That
hasn't been an issue, but two
or three players just kind of
lost their cool."
The defensive nature of the
game was evident from the
start when Taylor, on
Keystone's game-opening
drive, was stood up for a I-
yard gain by the Tornadoes'
Chuckie Covington on a third-
and-2 play, forcing Keystone
to punt after a failed attempt to
draw Bradford offsides.
"We couldn't block him,"
Dicksinson said of Covington.
The Indians were able to
mount a scoring drive the next
time they had the ball, though
it covered just 44 yards after a
29-yard punt by Bradford.
Taylor had six carries for 21
yards on the drive, including a
5-yard run on a fourth-and-4
play.
Fullback Thomas Ricketts
provided another key run of 7
yards for a first down before
Taylor eventually scored fr r.i
2 yards out. Gober's PAT put
the Indians up 7-0.
Bradford had a promising
drive at the end of the second
quarter, but the fact the
Tornadoes used two of their
timeouts in the first quarter
hurt. The Tornadoes drove
from their own 5 to the
Keystone 42. Covington had a
23-yard run to help the drive
along, but two straight

kickoff. The Indians recovered
the ball at the Bradford 28, but
a holding penalty hurt their
efforts, forcing them into a
third-and-19 play. Keystone
turned the ball over on downs.
Beard had the Tornadoes
moving on the ensuing series.
He had a 13-yard run on which
he appeared to be carrying the
entire Keystone defense, which
was good for a first down at
the Bradford 47. He later
added an 8-yard run to the
Keystone 43, but that's when
the first of two personal foul
penalties occurred.
Though they were backed
up, the Tornadoes still had a
first-and-10. Covington
immediately had a 5-yard
carry, but Bradford was
flagged for illegal procedure
on the next play. Beard, after
an incomplete pass on second
down, was dropped for a I-
yard loss on third down,
.forcing Bradford to punt.
On Bradford's next drive,
Justin Henderson appeared to
have picked up a first down
with a 24-yard reception to the
Bradford 45. A flag for an
ineligible receiver. downfield
wiped out the long play.-
Bradford was hit with a
holding penalty on the next
play, then called for a personal
foul three plays later.
"We can't do those things
against a good team," Hoard
said.
The game's second-and
final-scoring drive began
with 10:22 left to play.
Keystone chewed up
approximately five minutes in
driving 46 yards to the
Bradford 19. A chop block
penalty on Bradford gave the
Indians a first down, while
Story had four carries for 27
yards. His 13-yard run resulted
in a first down at the Bradford.-
21.
Keystone could not muster
much beyond that, setting
Gober up for a field goal that
Dickinson felt was key.
"That took a lot of pressure
off the defense," Dickinson
said.
Bradford did move past
midfield on the ensuing series
after Covington, who led the
Tornadoes with 78 yards on 12
carries, had a 10-yard run to
the Keystone 42. However, the
Tornadoes were later forced to
go for it on fourth-and-3,

A win would've resulted in
District 4-2B runner-up status
and a postseason berth.
However, the Union County
football team continued its up-
and-down play this season,
losing 43-11 to Chiefland on
Nov. 2 in Chiefland.
The Tigers (3-6, 1-3 in
District 4) have not won
consecutive games at any point
this season. They were coming
off of a win over non-district
opponent Dixie County, but
could not build. upon that
momentum.
If they had won, the Tigers
would have been the district
runners-up by virtue of their
earlier win over Trinity
Catholic. Their loss, however,
allowed Trinity to claim sole
possession of second in the
district behind champion
Newberry.
Union got off to a good start,
leading 11-8 after the first
quarter. Cody Bogard had a
30-yard field for the game's
first score, while Justin
Hanson scored a touchdown on
a 2-yard run.
The onhl score for Chiefland
(4-i .-22) in the opening
quarter came courtesy of its
defense. Stephen Davis


returned an interception 45
yards to put the Indians up 8-3
before Hanson scored Union's
lone touchdown.
Chiefland's offense,
however, did plenty in this
game, racking up 308 yards on
the ground and another 147
through the air. The Indians
scored three touchdowns in the
second quarter to take a 28-11
lead at the half. One of those
touchdowns came on a 5-yard
run by Davis, who also added
the last score of the game on a
I-yard run in the fourth
quarter.
The Tigers were held to 132
yards, including gaining just
13 yards rushing on 32 carries.

Union closes

season with

homecoming game


:BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
Making an appearance in the
postseason is no longer a
possibility, but the Union
County football team has a
chance to do something it
wasn't able to do last year
when it hosts the Taylor
County Bulldogs this Friday,
Nov. 9, at 7:30 p.m.-give its
fans a homecoming win.
Last year, the Tigers hosted
a Rutherford team for
homecoming during the. last
week of the season. Each team.
entered the game %with one win,
but it as Rutherford that
walked off the field with two.
This year, Union again faces
a team with a similar record.
The Tigers have three wins,
while Taylor, a Class 2A team,
has two.
The Bulldogs will be
attempting to equal their
record from last season with a
win. Taylor returns eight
starters on both sides of the
ball from last year's 3-7 team,
including senior Greg Sneed
and junior Brychoski Jackson,
who play on both offense and
defense.
Sneed, who plays


quarterback on offense,
.completed 8-of-Il passes for
106 yards in a 42-33 loss to
Fort White last week. Sneed
had two touchdown passes to
two other returners from last
year. Junior Rodrick Wilson
caught a 14-yard scoring pass,
while junior Quinton Tucker
caught a 35-yard touchdown
pass.
Jackson rushed for 179 yards
on 21 carries against Fort
White, scoring touchdowns on
runs of 20,40 and 50 yards.
The defense, however,
allowed Fort White to gain 475
yards, including 350 on. the
ground.

Taylor is scoring an average
of 19 points per game, while
opponents are averaging 34
points per game.
The Bulldogs got off to a 1-1
start this year, but, then
dropped four straight games-
two of which were against
opponents Union has played
this year. Taylor lost 20-19 to
Santa Fe and 46-14 to
Chiefland. Union also lost to
both by scores of 34-27 to
Santa Fe and 43-11 to
Chiefland.

Junior varsity Indians cap perfect year


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
Lantz Lowery was a little
concerned heading into the
Keystone Heights junior
varsity football team's game
against Interlachen on Oct. 24,
but the team gave their coach
something to smile about with
not just a win, but another
perfect season.
"It was exciting," Lowery,
the team's head coach, said
about his team's second
straight 8-0 season.
The Oct. 24 game marked
the second time the Indians
had played Interlachen. That.
was the source of Lowery's
concern as he wondered how
much the Rams had improved
from the first time Keystone
had played them (a shutout
win in just a half of play due to
lightning).
Interlachen did score against
the Indians this time. Lowery '
admitted his players probably
took the Rams lightly at first,
but in the end, the Indians still
scored more than 30 points.


More importantly, every
player contributed.
"Everybody got, to play-
and play quite a bit," Lowery
said.
Keystone had shut out three
straight opponents-including
Fort White and Baldwin-
prior to playing Interlachen.
The win over Fort White
avenged a loss two years ago.
Keystone has not lost since.
The Indians scored more
points this season than they did
lastiyear, but Lowery credits
the defense with being the true
catlalyst for another perfect
season. Players such as
defensive back Chase
Chambers, linebackers Justin
Branch and Zak Davis, and
linemen Ray Azar, Seth Green,
Robert Johnson, Brandon
Miller, Shane Morgan, Pedro
Rivera, Devin Smith, Kyle
Williams and Codyj
Yarbrough. were key players
for that unit, which held six
opponents to ,one touchdown
or less.
Lowery said the offense had
an easier time of scoring points


because the defense gave it a
short field to work with.
"Our defense was the
backbone of our football team
this year," he said.
The aforementioned
defensive linemen were also
key players on the offensive
line. Other leaders on offense
included running back Louis
Rivera and quarterback.
Brantley Lott.
Now that the season is over,
II players have joined the
varsity team: sophomores
Chambers, Davis, Green,
Miller, Morgan, Rivera,
Williams, Cole Stanford,
Dylan Black, and freshmen
Lott and Timothy Frysinger.
Lowery described those
players as the ones "who made
the motor run" on the junior
varsity team. He said every
one of them can make a
contribution on the varsity
team.
Such success as the junior
varsity team has had the past
two seasons can only benefit
the entire football program at


the school, Lowery said. The
Stwo losses experienced by the
juniors on the varsity team up
to this point were the first two
losses they've ever
experienced at the high school
level if they played on the
junior varsity team last year.
This year's sophomores who
will join the varsity team next
year have not lost yet.
What that means is players
are coming up through the
program with confidence and
an expectation of winning no
matter how close a game is,
Lowery said.
"Winning is a habit," he
said.
It is certainly a habit for the
junior varsity team, but
Lowery knows that a loss is
coming eventually. He just
hopes it's not soon.
"You know it's coming, but
you keep wanting to push it
backone more week," he said.
At least Lowery has an
entire off-season before having
to think about the possibility of
a loss.


Indians get big win after tie in preseason


early score against Suwannee
when midfielder Austin
Groves headed the ball into the
net.
Suwannee would tie the
game on a header of its own
early in the second half.
The scoring occurred early
and often in Keystone's second
match. Sophomore striker
Justin Hannah was
instrumental in the win over
Palatka, netting five goals and
assisting on two.
