Two dead

after

separate

wrecks
Two people have died following
separate accidents.
Alice Faye Kemp, 54, was driving
a 1995 Chevy pickup northbound on
U.S. 301 near Northeast 188th Street
around 10:55 p.m. Saturday, Dec.
22, when, according to witnesses
interviewed by the Florida Highway
Patrol, the vehicle veered to the right
and left the roadway.
Kemp attempted to steer back onto
the highway, but her truck skidded
out of control to the left and into
the median. The pickup overturned
several times, according to the FHP
crash report, and came to a rest in the
southbound lanes of U.S. 301.
According to the report, Kemp was
not restrained by a seat belt. Bradford
Medic 4 transported her to Shands
UF in Gainesville where she was
pronounced dead around 1 a.m.
A 88-year-old Bradford man died
Dec. 27 after his vehicle was struck
on S.R. 100.
Carl E. Stancil of Starke was
attempting a left turn from Southeast
84th Street at 10:25 a.m., according
to the FHP report. Stancil reportedly
drove his 1995 Buick into the path
of a 2000 Dodge pickup that was
eastbound on S.R. 100. The pickup
truck struck Stancil's car in the
driver's side, the report said.
Stancil, who was not wearing a
seat belt, was taken to Shands Starke
where he was pronounced dead.
The driver of the Dodge, Francis
A. Bishop, 58, of Lawtey, received
minbr injuries and did t'require
hospitalization. Bishop was wearing
a seat belt, according to the report.


Pratt Street

project

extended

BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor
A storm water, project on Pratt
Street could keep going until March
or beyond, according to sources close
to the project.
Joe Fisher, the city of Starke's
project director, attended a recent
meeting with the Suwannee River
Water Management District and the
contractor and said they now expect
to have the project wrapped up by
the first week of March, but that is a
tentative date considering the issues
that have complicated the project.
Missing or nonexistent as-built
plans for the utilities running under
Pratt Street have resulted in a number
of surprises for the contractor, Florida
Fill and Grading of Lake City-
including gas and water lines where
there was no record of them being
there.
.Pratt Street west of Orange Street
should be completed by the second
week of January
"They just said it was one problem
after another that they didn't
anticipate," Fisher said, including
problems with utilities.
A related project, the retention
pond next to the library is often talked
about as a separate project and may,
in fact, have a separate completion
date. It has faced difficulties as well.
Now that the pond is at the required
depth, water is flowing in from ttle
sides and the bottom, and the sides of
the pond cannot be finished until the
bottom is dried out.
That has led them to the decision
to put a foot and a half of rock
in the bottom of the pond to get
above the water level so equipment
and workers can get down there and
begin completing the project.
There's no estimated completion

An expansion project to double the size of the emergency room at Shands Starke is still
under way.


Dispatch merged into one public safety center


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor
Like its fire department and the
other law enforcement agencies
in the county before it, as well as
emergency medical services, Starke
Police Department officers are now
dispatched fromi an improved call
center located in the sheriff's office.
Although most improvements
aren't visible, BCSO's Lt. Gail
Russell said a lot of upgrades went
into the dispatch center, which now
carries the title Bradford County
Public Safety.
. Upgrades include a new mapping
system that. brings up a satellite
image of a caller's location when the
call comes in to public safety. The
imagery is more detailed, providing
an overhead view of the area and
surrounding streets, and the map can
be displayed upon a large, flat-screen
television visible by everyone in the
dispatch center.
Before, a dispatcher would see a
flat image with blocks representing
buildings, Russell said. Now they see
an actual aerial view of the location.
See DISPATCH, p. 2A


SAs a dispatcher, Janelle Harris monitors Incoming
emergency calls from her station in the communications
center at the sheriff's office. Dispatch now goes by the
.name Bradford County Public Safety.

to transfer it and go through the

Russell added that both
agencies now have better access
to information about what is
going on.
Overall, it's been a smooth
transition. There's still work to
be done at the police department,
which will serve as a secondary
public safety point, with one
or two additional dispatch
stations should an emergency
cause the primary center to be"
evacuated.
"We're still building that,"
Russell said. "That will take a
while."
Following another software
installation early this month,
the police department and
sheriff's office will be able to
share information via computer,
and those with passwords
will even be able to go online
from anywhere and access that
information.
Some of that information
may be available to the public
online someday, but Russell
said they haven't looked that
far down the road.
Everyone is convinced
that the greater efficiency a
combined dispatch center will
provide will benefit everyone,
including taxpayers.

all under one system now,
sharing information," Russell


said.

New location means greater

convenience for credit union members


BY ARNIE HARRIS
Telegraph Staff Writer


The new Florida Credit
Union, which opened on Dec.
10 in front of the Wal-Mart
Supercenter, offers customers,.
mote-cpnyeniti e'sabnd service'
than its previous incarnations
in Starke, said Vice President
of Marketing, Chris Clore.
For example, the lobby hours
have been extended from 9 a.m.
to 6 p.m., Monday-Friday; and
9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday.
A new customer-friendly
feature is drive-through service,
which is opened from 8 a.m. to
6 p.m., Monday-Friday, and. 9
a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday.
Clore said that in order to
better serve members, the staff
at the new credit union has
been increased from four to
nine employees.
"We offer our members
savings and checking accounts,
credit cards, money market
CDs, home equity, auto loans,
long product mortgages and


commercial business accounts,"
Clore said.
She added that members
are- served by lower interest
and loan rates; higher rates on
deposits and other expanded
SServices ..... ....
-'-'We' 'consider customer
convenience ultimately our
most important product," said
Clore.
As a further example she
cited a 24-hour loan officer
available by phone in case you
decide you want to buy a new
car at two in the morning, she
said.
She said that the Starke
Florida Credit Union serves
approximately 4,000 members
right now.
Clore said that the basic
difference between the credit
union and a bank is that while
they basically offer similar
services, the latter is owned
by stockholders, while the
members of the credit union
are, in the aggregate; the
owners.


"That means that our profits
accrue to the members in the
form of lowered borrowing
rates and expanded services,"
said Clore.
The Florida Credit Union,
A,,which begAi&;in' 1954, was
originally the Alachua County
Teachers Credit Union, said
Clore. In the 1960s and '70s
it gradually merged with the
Bradford County Teachers
Credit Union and opened a
branch in Starke in 1981.
At the present time, Clore
said, the Florida Credit Union
has eight branches that cover 13
counties, with nearby branches
in Gainesville, Ocala and
Lake City. Overall, it boasts a
membership of some 48,000
members statewide.
Clore, whose home base is
the Gainesville office, said she
has worked there for 29 years.
The Florida Credit Union is
located in front of the new Wal-
Mart Supercenter. The phone
number is (904) 964-1427.


Local Florida Credit Union employees include (1-r) Maryann Watson, Melanie
Aldredge, Kayla Fishburn, Rachel Starling, Amanda, Reed and Carrie Lockhart.

Sheriff looking out for

employees prior to

departure


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

Sheriff Bob Milner is
thinking ahead to a time when
he will no longer be in charge
of personnel decisions at the
sheriff's office and jail.
Milner, who is retiring
to 'run for state office, has
asked members of the local
legislative delegation, Rep.
Aaron Bean and Sen. Steve
Oelrich, to sponsor a bill that
would give current sheriff's
office employees career service
status and access to an appeals
process should the future sheriff
terminate their employment.
Bean and Oelrich have
agreed to sponsor the bill in
their respective chambers of
the legislature, Milner said.
Career service wouldn't just
apply with the takeover of a
new administration; if passed
it would give any sheriff's
employee the right to appeal a
suspension or firing.
Career service status would
be attained following the end of
an employee's initial one-year
probationary status and applies
to anyone below the rank of.
major.Anyone dismissed during
their probationary period would
not be entitled to an appeal.
A career service employee
could only be suspended or
dismissed for cause after
receiving written notice of the
proposed action and being given
the opportunity to respond to the
reasons for the suspension or
dismissal unless the sheriff sees
immediate hazard in continued
employment. In either case, the
employee would be entitled to
appeal the decision to a career
service appeals board:
The appeals board would
be able to make a nonbinding
recommendation to the sheriff
regarding the suspension or
dismissal. Said board would
consist of four sheriff's office


would serve as an ex officio, or
nonvoting, member to provide
procedural guidance.
However, when it comes to
appeals, the sheriff retains the
right of final determination, and
no one will be reinstated without
the sheriff's concurrence.
The bill specifically states,
though, that in times of
transition from one sheriff to
the next, employees with career
service status should not be
dismissed without cause.
In general in the state of
Florida, employees can be fired
at will in the absence -of a
contract that states otherwise.
In theory, a new administrator
could take over a department
and fire staff without cause.
The new sheriff would have
some leeway under the bill. The
new sheriff would be able to
demote captains or lieutenants
by one rank and do the same
for the personnel director and
sheriff's secretary, adjusting
their salaries accordingly.
According to Milner, Baker,
Levy, Columbia and Clay
counties are among many others
that have the career service
process in place.
Milner has announced that
this will be his last term serving
as sheriff. He is running for
Bean's house seat. This is Bean's
last term as representative due
to term limits.
In other business:
An amended agreement with
the sheriff over the control of
out-of-county inmate housing
revenue was put into place last
month.
According to the 2006
agreement between the sheriff
and the county commission,
the sheriff kept the lion's share
of the revenue generated when


he housed inmates from out-
of-county agencies in order to
fund jail and law enforcement

is not affiliated with BCEF,
but CIS does oversee the Take
Stock in Children program.
Take Stock is a program that
is aimed at helping low-income
young people earn scholarships
to attend college. Program
participants sign a contract
saying they will stay in school,
earn good grades and stay out
of trouble. In return,. they get
four years of free tuition at a
Florida college or university.
In order to help ensure that
participants can meet the terms
of the contract, each one is
provided with an adult role
model who meets with the
student once a week throughout
the school year.
Scholarship recipients
attend two years at a Florida
community college and then
transfer to a Florida college
or university for the final two
years. The scholarships can
also be used to fund technical
or vocational degrees at a
number of Florida facilities, if
the student prefers those career
choices.
Take Stock needs both
funding and volunteers to act
as mentors for the students.

Communities in Schools
of Bradford County
has benefited from a
number of donations
for its Take Stock in
Children program, which
provides mentorship and
scholarships to students
in Bradford schools.
CIS is already working
with an anonymous
donor who provides a
dollar-for-dollar match
to all contributions to
the program, meaning a
donation of funds for one
scholarship automatically
becomes enough money
for two. The program is
also applying for funds
that could triple and
quadruple the impact of
funds raised locally.

2008 stamps
What do Bette Davis, "Take
Me Out to the Ball Game"
and Latin jazz have in com-
mon? They're some of the sub-
jects recognized in the Postal
Service's 2008 stamp program.
The 2008 stamp program
recognizes a range of subjects
as diverse as America itself,'
from the Chinese Lunar New
Year celebrated in Chinatowns
all over the country, to 20th
century movie icons and liter-
ary figures, to the flags of our
states and territories.
"This stamp series celebrates
ouir greatest creative minds, our
groundbreaking heroes, and the
places, institutions and values
that have made us who we are,"
said Postmaster General John
Potter. "We're proud to be able
to highlight noteworthy parts
of our shared American history
on stamps that people will use
every day to connect with fam-
ily and friends.
The introduction of The
Flags of Our Nation series this
summer makes for a perfect
start into stamp collecting-


and they're a great geography
lesson.
Flags of Our Nation In mid-
June, the first of this multiyear
series of 60 stamps will begin to
wave across the counters of the
nation's 37,000 Post Offices.
The series highlights the Stars
and Stripes, 50 state flags, five
territorial flags, and the District
of Columbia flag. Ten stamps
will be issued in the spring-
Stars and Stripes, plus Alabama
through Delaware-followed
by 10 more in the fall-District
of Columbia through Kansas.
The series continues in 2009
and 2010, with four of the six
groups of 10 to include a Stars
and Stripes stamp.
Celebrating Lunar New
Year: Year of the Rat The
2008 com-
memora-
tive stamp
program
launches
in early
January
by cele-
brating the
Chinese
Lunar
New Year
with the

issuance of the Celebrating
Lunar New Year: Year of the
Rat stamp.
Charles W. Chesnutt Later
in January, the 31st stamp in the
Black Heritage series honors


Charles W. Chesnutt, a pioneer-
ing writer recognized today as
a major innovator and singular
voice among turn-of-the-centu-
ry literary realists who probed
the color line in American life.
Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings
Best known for her Pulitzer
Prize-winning novel "The
Yearling" and her mem-
oir "Cross Creek," Marjorie


Kinnan Rawlings will be com-
memorated on Feb. 21 at the
site of her Cross Creek, Fla.,
home. Rawlings is remembered
for a series of short stories,
novels and non-fiction works
about life in the Florida back-
woods.
American Scientists Some
of the most impressive scientif-
ic achievements of the 20th cen-
tury will be recognized in April
when the American Scientists
stamps are issued. The series
honors four scientists: theoreti-
cal physicist John Bardeen, bio-
chemist Gerty Cori, astronomer
Edwin Hubble and structural
chemist Linus Pauling.

Frank Sinatra The Postal
Service honors Frank Sinatra,
an Oscar-winning actor and
a supreme interpreter of
American popular song.
Wedding Hearts In 2008,
the U.S. Postal Service will
reissue the designs of the two
2007 Wedding Hearts stamps
featuring vines that form the


shape of a heart. These stamp's
are designed especially for
mailing wedding invitations
and RSVPs and are sure to add
an elegant touch to invitations
and response cards.
Love: All Heart In 1973, the
U.S. Postal Service issued the
first stamp in its popular Love
series. The 2008 design, titled
All Heart, features an over-
sized heart being transported by
its owner to convey that a heart
filled with love could be a gift
to one's beloved, rather than
the usual flowers or candy.

Fire department needs

stretch available funds


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor
The county commission
agreed to the purchase of badly
needed breathing apparatuses
needed by the' Hampton
and Brooker volunteer fire
departments last month, .but
commissioners couldn't agree
on how to spend money for
6ther needs.
The breathing apparatus
being used by those volunteers
was around 30 years old,
according to county Fire
Chief Percy Sullivan, but he
presented the board with an
opportunity to purchase used
replacements from departments
in Jacksonville.
Twenty breathing units (with
new tanks and new masks to
go with them) were bought at
$2,000 for a total of $40,000-
enough to meet the needs of
those two departments and
provide backups. New units
cost around $7,600 a piece,
according to Sullivan.
Money was included irr
the fire departments' original
budget request for this year,
but was cut due to funding
limitations. The county should
be reimbursed anywhere from
75 to 100 percent of its request
to the Federal Emergency
Management Agency for the
use of personnel and equipment
during last year's wildfires,
and Sullivan proposed using a
portion of that reimbursement
to pay the county back for
purchasing the equipment now.
That money is expected by
the end of February or the
beginning of March, Sullivan
said.
Sullivan also brought up
the lack of a station for the
Sampson City .department.
Their trucks are exposed to
the weather and equipment has
been repeatedly stolen, he said.
An adequate station is expected
to cost upwards of $70,000.
Then there was the request
for funds from the Heilbron
Springs department, which is


looking at the purchase of
brush truck from Tampa fo
$26,500. Heilbron Springs ha
$8,000 to contribute to the
purchase.
The money isn't in the
county's fire departmen
budget, so the board woulh
have to cover the remainde
of cost. Much of the cost o:
the Sampson City fire station
may be covered with remaining
FEMA dollars.
While the fire council
hadn't officially met to discuss
the purchase, Sullivan saic
conversations with most of
the chiefs indicated most were
supportive of buying the truck,
but they wanted to see the
station at Sampson City taken
care of first.
Sullivan was looking to
the commission for direction,
but commissioners were
torn. Commissioners John
Wayne Hersey and Eddie
Lewis thought money would
be more wisely spent on the
fire station, but Commissioner
Doyle Thomas was fighting for
the truck purchase, saying the
county couldn't even put a roof
on a department for the money
the county would be spending
to purchase a truck that would
last for a number of years.
Commissioner John Cooper
said he didn't want to authorize
the purchase of a truck until
the fire council had met and
made a recommendation based
on priorities.
Chairman Ross Chandler
asked Sullivan to meet with the
fire council and return with that
recommendation.
In other business, Sullivan
said the Theressa department
may be on the verge of a
FEMA grant that would allow
upgrades to the department
that could help lower the ISO
rating for that area of the
county. The, upgrades would
make Theressa's equipment
compatible with the Keystone
Heights departmentt, Sullivan
said.

Theressa author's


book fun for

beginning readers


BY ARNIE HARRIS
Telegraph Staff Writer

After graduating from Bryn
Mawr College in Pennsylvania,
where she did her undergraduate
and graduate studies, Susan
Stannard Shearer devoted most
of her life to being a vocational
rehabilitation counselor for
various organizations.
After retiring from this
rewarding career and moving
from her native Connecticut to
Florida, the desire to be of help
to others still was a motivating
factor in her life, she said.
This time, however, she
focused her energies on helping
very young children become
proficient readers.
"The idea was always in the
back of my mind, but one day
the inspiration hit at once,"
Shearer said.
The result is the soon-to-
be published "Wacky Rhymes:
Three-Letter A, E, I, 0, U
Words," which teaches children
about vowel sounds through
the use of rhyming page-long
simple stories, each line of
which ends in a three-letter
word such as hat, sat or bat. The
page opposite each rhyming
story is blank, providing room
for the child to exercise his/her
own creativity by illustrating
the story or, if they choose, to
practice printing.
After several of these poem-
stories, the book naturally
moves on to the next vowel
and repeats the process.
Shearer said the idea is for
a reading companion-mentor,
parent or teacher- to read up
to the last word of each line,
and allow the child to complete
the rhyme by calling aloud the
highlighted word.
"The book is designed to
reinforce phonic skills in the
beginning reader in a fun
format, providing both positive
reinforcement for.developing
a reading habit, and bonding
time with parents, grandparents
or others serving as reading
companions/mentors. It can
also be used in a group setting,"
said Shearer.
She said that she plans a


Susan Stannard Shearer
series of books of which this is
the first. All will begin with the
familiar title, "Wacky Rhymes,"
but will progress to four-letter
rhyming words with a silent e,
at the end, thereby changing the
vowel sound.
Other books in the
envisioned series will deal
with the effects of double
consonants, diphthongs and
other grammatical elements that
determine word pronunciation,
Shearer said.
The daughter of a Connecticut
newspaper editor and sister of
a teacher, she said she' feels
these influences in some subtle
way motivated her new interest
in helping children become
skilled readers.
She currently lives in
Theressa with her husband,
James, who is a writer in his
own right working on a fantasy
fairy tale, that Shearer said has
practical morals and lessons for
young people.
"Wacky Rhymes: Three-
Letter A, E, I, 0, U Words" will
be available on Monday, Jan.
28 at bookstores and online
retail outlets............
Shearer said schools or other
organizations interested in
purchasing the book in bulk
at discounted rates, should
contact her at (352) 359-8431,
or ssshearer@yahoo.com.

County seeks solution to road fund shortage

The county has a priority

and one significant problem
standing in the way-the lack
of money to undertake the final.
two projects.
County road paving funds
have dwindled to around
$150,000 to complete the
projects estimated to cost more
--than $2.2 million.
There is an additional
$326,000, but it is already
committed to the completion
of an ongoing priority road
project, the paving of Northeast
28tf Avenue in District 1.
The roads on the priority list
still waiting to be paved are
Northwest 180th Street .(from
C.R. 225 to C.R. 229) in District
2 and Southwest 161st Street in
District 5. The roads have been
on the paving priority list since
February 2003.
A number of roads both on
and off of that list have been
paved or resurfaced since that
time with state grants and
awards as well as funds from

the county's special road project
fund, which was renewed each
year with an infusion of sales
tax revenue.
This year, much of that
money had to be used to
balance the budget after the
loss of inmate housing revenue
that was being used to fund the
sheriff's office and jail. The
commission slightly adjusted
property taxes upward to help
place around $450,000 in
the budget for roads, but Jim
Crawford, the former county
manager said the cost of the
ongoing and remaining projects
was more than anticipated.
The length of those roads
and increased construction
costs have led to higher cost
estimates.
Prior to approving this year's
budget, commissioners came
to an understanding that if
property taxes were increased
to help pay for roads this year,
then the board would look at
raising the gas tax to help fund
road construction in the future.
Adding to the interest in
pursuing that route are the
potential implications of voters


approving a constitutional
amendment cutting property
taxes. Commissioner John
Cooper said the county would
take an $800,000 hit if that
were to happen, based on state
estimates.
The governor has proposed a
fund to repay small counties for
small revenue, but Cooper said
the state doesn't know where it
would get the money for that
fund.,
Around $49,000 has already
been spent on engineering for
the paving of 161st and 180th
in previous years. Eddie Lewis,
commissioner for District 5,
said if $150,000 is all that's left,
it needs to be spent on the roads
from the priority list. Lewis
also asked about borrowing
funds to continue the work and
using sales tax money to repay
the loan.
There is an outstanding loan
for roadwork that is being
repaid with around $200,000 in
sales tax money each year.
Cooper said he could
appreciate where Lewis was
coming from, but added he
couldn't support borrowing


any more money until after the
outcome of the property tax
referendum is known.
District 2 Commissioner
Doyle Thomas said he wanted
to see the remaining $150,000
spent on improving 161st and
180th as much as possible for
the residents who live there,
and Crawford said lime rock
work would improve the roads
and prepare the base for future
paving.
A draft' of the gas tax
ordinance should be ready this
month according to the county's
attorney. Cooper said if the tax
cut passes, in his mind there
would be no alternative than to
pass a higher gas tax in order to
pay for roadwork.

New Blanding commander found his niche in Guard


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
serving and helping
others-that's what Col. J.M.
"Mickey" Duren enjoys doing.
He has done so in a variety of
capacities in the Florida
National Guard and looks to
continue that in his new
position as commander of the
Camp Blanding Joint Training
Center.
"I enjoy helping people,"
Duren said. "I've always
enjoyed helping people."
That's what being at Camp
Blanding-in any position-is
all about, Duren said. The post,
he said, consists of a variety of
people, military and non-
military, working together
toward a common goal-
providing excellent customer
service. That ranges from
providing the best training
opportunities for Guardsmen
to best meeting the needs of
retired Guardsmen and their
families who visit the post for
recreational opportunities.
"Everybody who comes
through our gates is a
customer," Duren said. "We
want to ensure that we're
providing absolutely the best
customer service to whoever
comes through that gate."
That is by no means a
revelation to Duren, who
replaces Col. Benny Nelson.
Duren, of course, as a member
of the Guard, has been at
Camp Blanding before. In fact,
he served as commander of
both the 853"' Supply and
Service Company and 927th
Corps Support Battalion, both
of which are headquartered at
Blanding.
"This is my third time being.
a, commander, actually, at
Camp Blanding," Duren said.
Duren is also familiar with
the area, having visited the
former Strickland's Landing as
a child. The Jacksonville
native, who now lives in St.
Augustine, is looking forward
to familiarizing himself more
with Bradford and Clay
counties and the leaders of
both.
"That's one of my goals here
as the commander at Camp
Blanding-to interact more
with the local community
leaders. The community is
vital to what goes on here at
Camp- Blanding. We want to
be involved in what goes on in
our community."
Duren has been involved in
the Florida National Guard for
approximately 33 years. He
joined the Guard as a member
of the 853d Supply and
Service Company one year
after graduating from Paxon
High School in Jacksonville,
talked into doing so by one of
his managers at the Winn-
Dixie store he was working at.
For Duren, the Guard
offered him the chance to
venture away from home. He
had never traveled far from the
west side of Jacksonville.
"When (my manager) started
talking to me about the

different adventures I would
get to do, it. was just an easy
sell," Duren said. "At that
time. there wasn't a war going


on. Vietnam had basically just
ended. It was just about new
experiences."
After serving as an enlisted
member, Duren faced the


decision of whether to join the
Guard full time or devote all

fishing season

reopens
The recreational harvest
season for spotted seatrout
reopened in the southern half
of Florida on Jan. 1.
Spotted seatrout harvest had
been closed since Nov. 1 in
Florida Atlantic Coast waters
south of the Flagler-Volusia
counties line and in Gulf Coast
waters south of a line running
due west from the westernmost
point of Fred Howard Park
Causeway, which is about 1.17
miles south of the
Pinellas/Pasco counties line.
This two-month closure occurs
each year to help maintain the
abundance of spotted seatrout.
The maximum daily bag
limit for spotted seatrout in
these areas is four fish per
person. In all Florida waters
north and west of these areas,
the daily limit is five fish per
person.
The statewide slot limit for
spotted seatrout is 15-20
inches total length. However,
anglers may keep one spotted
seatrout larger than 20 inches
as part of the daily bag limits.
Spotted seatrout may not be
harvested by using any
multiple hooks with live or
dead natural bait, and snagging
pr snatch hooking spotted
seatrout is not allowed.
Spotted seatrout may be taken
only with hook, line gear and
cast nets and must be landed in
a whole condition.
The harvest of spotted
seatrout will close during the
month of February in northeast
and northwest Florida waters.

BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
If someone asks Veronica
Harris or Kristen Rodgers what
one of their highlights of 2007
was, they could respond by
saying they were not cold and
wet on Thanksgiving.
Harris and Rodgers, who are
both band students at Bradford
High School, participated in.
the Macy's Thanksgiving Day
Parade with other high school
students from throughout the
country as part of the Macy's
Great American Marching
Band for the second straight
year. They have many
memories of their trip to New
York, but one thing that stood
out was that the weather was
so much better than it was
during the 2006 parade.
"It wasn't raining, and you
weren't slipping or stepping min
puddles," Rodgers said.
That wasn't the only
difference between the two
trips. For starters, there was
the mode of travel. Harris,
Rodgers and fellow band
student Lindsey Solze, who
graduated in 2007, traveled to
New York in 2006 by train.
This year, Harris, a junior, and
Rodgers, a senior, traveled by
plane.
Rodgers had never flown
before, so that was a scary
prospect at first, she said. She
admitted to being nervous
prior to takeoff as the plane
still sat motionless on the
runway, but she eventually
relaxed.
"When it took off," she said,
"I was like, 'This is going to
be fun.'"
Harris had flown before, so'
that was no big deal to her. She
said she may not be crazy
about flying, but the trip sure
beat riding 21 hours on a train.
Another difference in 2007
was that the students spent a
lot more time rehearsing than
they did in 2006.
"Our first rehearsal was only
about two or three hours long,"
Rodgers said. "The second
rehearsal, though, was seven or
eight hours long."
Rodgers said, that second
rehearsal. was tiring and
repetitive, but she and Harris
both agreed it was worth it.
Not only did the students
rehearse for a longer period of
time,, they boarded the buses
on Thanksgiving,morning a lot
earlier than they ,di&,in 2006.,
They had to be on the buses at

School

this past
season.


1:30 a.m. as compared to 3
a.m. in 2006.
Harris said the students were
excused to their rooms earlier
the night before on this recent
trip because they did not have
a seminar to attend. She took
advantage of that and went to
bed in an attempt to get some
sleep, but Rodgers stayed
wake.
"I actually didn't even go to
bed that night," Rodgers said.
"It just wasn't worth it."
Harris said performing in the
parade was still a little scary
regardless of her experience in
2006. The magnitude of the
event made it so.
"You'll get into the music
and then realize three million
people are watching me," she
said. "A bunch of people are
seeing me on the parade route.
It's a sudden realization of
what you're doing there. It's a
crazy thought."
Still, Harris and Rodgers
were able to take on the roles
of parade veterans and calm
the nerves of those who were
participating for the first time.
"This year, I realized there
were other people
experiencing what I felt last
year," Rodgers said. "They
were getting nervous. I was
telling them, 'It's OK. It's not
that bad.'"
."It was cool to be able to
comfort other people who were
really nervous and help them
learn from our experiences (in
2006)," Harris said.
The interaction with other
high school students went
beyond merely calming the


nerves of first-time
participants. Rodgers said she.
and Harris made a lot more
friends this time around.
compared to 2006, though she
added Harris did make-a lot of
friends that year, as well.
"It was just really good to
see some of those people-
again," Harris said.
Rodgers remembered how
excited so many of the
students were after the parade.
She spent her time back at the


hotel talking to others about
the experience.
"Some of us sat in the
hallway," she said. "We were
talking to first-time people.
They were like, 'This is so
exciting.' They just. couldn't
calm down."
It was quite a different scene
from 2006 when the cold, wet
students returned to their hotel
and slept, Rodgers said.

Lawtey
parade makes
for a special
Christmas
Dear Editor:
I would like to thank the
citizens of Lawtey who
orchestrated the Lawtey
Christmas parade. It was an
event worth braving the cold
weather for. For a smaller
community, one would not
have expected the participants
that were in the parade. I was
impressed with the show
of community pride involved.
Also, I would like to
commend Jeanette Phillips and
the Lawtey Recreation
Department members for
providing a truly merry
Christmas event for the local
community. Every child in
attendance received a gift, and
ih'll,2 many individuals
walked away with one of the
many door prizes or gifts that
were part of the drawings held.
, I am glad to have been able
to experience the events held
in Lawtey on Dec. 22. The
Lawtey Christmas party
sponsored by the recreation
department showed the
meafnig of giving during the
holidays.

Restaurant

crosses line
with use of
Santa
Dear Editor:.
I would like to voice my
opinion on an advertising
matter that just has me
appalled. Several times this
past week, my. husband and I
have gone into downtownw,
Keystone for various reasons. I
am very disturbed to zee that a
local restaurant had someone
dressed jaSatuit ws
back andlforth at the corpereof
S.R. 21 anf LOw)0-ca.iryi
a sign that advertised their full
bar-not their menu, but their
full bar.
We ban alcohol from our
parks, school functions and
most other places where our
children gather, and then allow
some restaurant to advertise
their alcohol by someone in a
Santa suit at the main
intersection of our beautiful
town?
I don't oppose the sale of
alcohol. What I do oppose is
using Santa to do it. I wonder
how old the person under that
costume wyas. Why is it that
there are sign'restrictions here,
but there don't seem to be any
restrictions of
someone standing on a street
corner holding a sigh
advertising this particular
restaurant?
This has been an ongoing
occurrence at lunch time for
several weeks now. While I do
not live within the city limits, I
do think that the city council,
mayor and our new
city manager should look into


this.
They also have invaded.
personal e-mail with their
advertising. I have never given
them my e-mail address and
resent the use of it. I have no
idea how they obtained it.
Come on Keystone. Speak
out.

Ethics of
public officials
questioned
Dear Editor:
Now let me see if I have got
this right. The front page of the
Dec. 20 paper reported that
Mr. Eddie Lewis and Mr.
Doyle Thomas sat on the board
of directors of the New River
Regional Landfill. These
Bradford County
commissioners represent two
of the four members of that
board. The other two come
from another county.
These people establish the
rules and course of conduct
and guidelines for all activities
of the New River landfill
operation. With reference to
this equipment auction, they
approve of the way something
is to be sold, including
minimum bids and things of
that nature. So why was it
necessary for them to ask the
landfill director if it was OK
for someone to put in a bid that
was less than the established
minimum bid?.
Next question: When and
where was this auction
advertised? I have looked
through the Telegraph dating
back to September and didn't
locate a public auction for
these items. The auction might
have been in another paper or
posted in a public place, and if
so, it seems that this method
might just be questionable if
they really\wanted to: get the
best buck for"the items sold.
Something is wrong when
the governing body. of an
.rganizatt~ sets oaMle and
-lthen, in,;executi ve', 'session,
-.eBltangO em' fOiNVhatever
reason. Either something is
clearly d.,dvertised for
maximum effect and the rules
that are made are lived by for
all, or they are not.
'It seems to me that the New
River Solid Waste outfit has
been manipulated unethically
and for the gain of those who
set the rules in the first place.
Now here is the real ball-
buster: The members of the
commission asked the director

that this is the credo of the
Florida Ethics Commission.
And this is not all. On the
day following the day the
paper came out, the Bradford'
County Commission met.
During that meeting, Mr.
Lewis proposed that we, the
public, not be allowed to bring
a sign into the county
commission meeting place.
Believe it or not, two lawyers
in the room agreed that signs
could be restricted.
My goodness, has anybody
on the commission ever read
the Bill of Rights? The entire
county commission voted to
prevent signs during meetings
wherein the commission is
holding a session.
The framers of our
Constitution and Bill of Rights
intended for you and I to have
freedom of expression. My
daddy fought in World War I
to preserve that freedom. My '
older family members
fought-some died-to
preserve that freedom. This
writer was in a,police action in
Korea (I am not sure what for,
but we thought it was t6
preserve our way of life). I am"'
sure that our Vietnam veterans,
our Desert Storm veterans and
on and on, ad infinitum,
believe that our Constitution
and Bill of Rights are wrapped
up somewhere in what we
swore to do.

You've certainly heard
and read many reports about
defaults on mortgage loans.
There are many reasons
homeowners face such situa-
tions, some of which are
completely beyond their con-
trol. There are also several
solutions, but each carries a
consequence. .,
In one example, a family
had to relocate for an attrac-
tive job offer. The home
they were selling languished
in a slow market for over six
months, and they defaulted
because they couldn't contin-
ue the mortgage payments.
Their agent negotiated a
"short sale," whereby the
lender accepted an offer that
was $10,000 less than the
loan balance (rather than
begin unpleasant foreclosure
proceedings)'. h this case,
it's important to understand


NOTTAX RELIEF!
that the shortfall is consid-
ered "debt relief' and is
reported as taxable income
to the IRS.
Since the sellers didn't
have to repay that $10,000 to
the lender, the IRS consid-
ered it the same as $10,000
income: This debt relief
from a short sale is consid-
ered taxable to the borrow-
ers, and the corresponding
Form 1099 must be reported,
This is one of the simpler
scenarios' created by defaults
or foreclosures, which are
becoming more common as
market corrections and rising
interest rates prevail. No
matter what reason you or
someone you know might be
facing default, it is absolute-
ly critical to consult with a
tax adviser and a trusted real
estate agent before deciding
how to proceed.

PARADE
Continued from page 3B

Well, it was different for
some. An exhausted Harris did
not even bother with taking a
shower. She went into
Rodgers' room while Rodgers
was out talking to people and
crashed.
"I just passed out," Harris
said.
The students did have time
io take in the sights of New
York while they were there.
That included a trip to a church
near the site of the former
World Trace Center Twin
Towers. A memorial to those
who perished on Sept. 11,
2001, was on display.
"It was really heartbreaking
to go there and see that,"
Harris said.
That was one of the more
memorable moments of the
trip for Harris. On a lighter
note, she also enjoyed seeing
the Rockettes perform at the
Radio City Christmas-
Spectacular, Rodgers said the
2007 show was a little
different from the 'one she and
Harris saw in 2006 as it was
the show's 75th anniversary,
"They 'added extra scenes
and extra songs," Rodgers
said. "It was really good."
One of Rodgers' favorite
parts of the trip was being able
to gaze out upon the city from
atop the Rockefeller Center.
"You never realize how big
New York City is until 'you
stand on top of one of the
buildings and just look out,"
she said. "You can't-see all th-e
buildings because they're so
far away. It just goes on for
miles and miles."
However, the awesome sight
did not make Rodgers feel like
a fish out of water. Far from it.
In fact, she said she has come
to realize that though she has
lived in Bradford County for
approximately 10 years, she
feels she is more of a city girl
than a country girl. Sure, she
can do without the "pushiness"
of a lot of the people in New
York, she said, but she enjoys
the city's architecture and the
general lifestyle that comes
with living there.
"I actually have this dream,"
Rodgers said. "Hopefully one
day, after I finish college, I
want to go work at St.

in New York City. That's
where I want to live."
Harris said she is the exact
opposite of Rodgers. She is no
stranger to New York, since
her mother lives there, but she
could not envision living in the
big city..
"While I was there, I
realized how truly blessed I am
to live in Starke," Harris said.
Harris, as a junior, has the
chance to make a third trip to
New York to participate as
part of the Great American
Marching Baud. She's not sqre
yet if she will go again.
One reason for that is 'that
she wants to continue to
treasure her first trip there in
2006. What she found when
she went this past time was
that she was constantly
comparing her experience to
that one in 2006.
"I still want to make the first
experience the experience of a
lifetime," she said. "Doing it
over and over again is going to
lessen the experience."
Another factor in Harris'
decision is cost. She and
Rodgers said the cost of
participating is increasing each
year. Rodgers said there was a
$400 jump in the cost from
2006 to 2007. In fact, there
were times where Harris and
Rodgers thought they were not
going to be able to go this past
year. Rodgers even returned
checks to businesses that had
given her donations to help
fund the trip.
One such returned check
went to George Roberts
Insurance. That's when Lori
Thompson, who works for the
agency, took it upon herself to
help raise the necessary funds,
Rodgers said. Thompson and
the employees at the insurance
agency helped raise enough
money to cover Rodgers' cost
of the trip uind give her a little
extra spending money.
"They're just amazing
people," Rodgers said. "I am
so thankful for them."
"It truly was a blessing that
they did that for ;her," Harris
said.
If a student can raise the
necessary funds, though, both
Harris and Rodgers
recommend taking the trip and
participating in the parade.
"It is a great experience,"
Harris said.

Tornadoes defeat Baker for third place in tourney


* BY CLIFF SMELLEY
* Telegraph Staff Writer
Eugene Blye made 6-of-8
free throws in the final 1:30 to
help the Bradford boys'
basketball team come from
behind and defeat Baker
County 64-60 on Dec. 29 to
a, capture third place in the
Florida First Coast Classic,
which was played at Baker
County High School.
Blye scored 23 of his game-
higfi 36 points in the second
half as the Tornadoes
improved to 10-2. He
practically carried Bradford as
he was one of only two players
to score in the second half.
SMarkael Moore scored 10
points in the second half and
finished the game with 13.
Baker County could not stop
Blye from continually driving
to the basket, the result of
which was usually trips to the
foul line. Blye made 20 of his
26 free-throw attempts,
including a 15-of-20
performance in the second
half.
The Tornadoes trailed
throughout the entire second
half, but a pair of steals helped
Bradfodd ,tae the lead late in
the fourth quarter after Blye
tied thedscore at 54-all. A steal
by Justin 'Henderson led to a
transition' basket by Moore.

another basket attempt in
transition following a steal by
Martella Moore. Markael
Moore made 1-of-2 free
throws with 2:34 rermaining to
put Bradford up 57-54.
The lead didn't last long.
Baker's Josh Wiseman, after
scoring 20 points in the first
half, was quiet throughout
much of the second half, but
he made his third 3-pointer of
the game following Moore's
free throw to even the score.
A trip to the foul line by
Blye put the Tornadoes back
up by one, but Baker's Delano
Paige drove to the basket and
scored. Paige was fouled in the
process, so he added a free
throw that put the Wildcats -up
60-58 with 1:43 left to play.
Two free throws by Blye
tied the score again. He then
came up with a steal on the
defensive end of the floor.
Blye attempted to go the
distance and score, getting
fouled in the process. He made
one of his free-throw attempts
to put Bradford back on top.
Bradford's defense was
crucial down the stretch. The
Tornadoes came up with three
steals in the last minute,
including two by Blye. His
second, off of a deflected pass
by Markael Moore, led to his
final free-throw attempts,
which capped the scoring with


nine seconds to play.

Moore's rebound tip-in put the

the third quarter.
"We had a gteat third

record sweep KHHS boys

of Baker Co._ end 3-game
BY CLIFF SMELLEY

BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
It was senior night for the
Middleburg boys' soccer team,
but it was a trio of Keystone
Heights seniors that stole the
show in the Indians' 2-0 win
on Dec. 21.
The Indians (8-8-1), who
ended a three-game slide, were
denied several scoring
opportunities in the first half.
They did find the net,
however, when senior Ryan
Miller fed a pass to senior
Maurice Godau, whose shot
went off the bottom of the top
bar for a goal in the 22nd
minute.
Both teams went back and
forth in a second half that
remained scoreless until the
66th minute. 'That's when a
charging Godau headed in a
free kick by senior Brad Gober
to put Keystone up 2-0.
The play of the seniors was
key, but Keystone also got a
huge contribution from a
freshman goalie Tim
Frysinger. Frysinger made six
saves and achieved his first
career shutout.
Keystone head coach Trevor
Waters said he was pleased
with the play of his team's
defense overall. Players such
as Gober, Justin Branch, Justin.
Hedding and Darby Johns
made the difference in the
match, Waters said.
Offensively, Keystone took
24 shots on goal. Middleburg
attempted just eight shots.
The Indians host Ridgeview
on Tuesday, Jan. 8, in the first
of four straight home games.
Keystone plays Clay on
Thursday, Jan. 10, Fernandina
Beach on Friday, Jan. 11, P.K.
Yonge on Monday, Jan. 14.
All matches are scheduled
for 7 p.m.
