Wife recovering after shooting


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
AND
VIRGINIA DAUGHERTY

The question of why 45-year-old
James Kenneth Tuten picked up a
handgun and shot his wife last week
remains unanswered
Rebecca Tuten, 33, claims there
was no history of violence between
the two of them and said she has
no idea what sparked the attack,
although her mind has gone over it
repeatedly.
"I have come to a point that I can
not think about it anymore," she
said.
On the afternoon of Feb. 14 at
the paint and body shop where they
both worked, Tuten shot his wife
twice before later turning a gun on
himself.
Rebecca survived. Her husband,
known to many as "Kenny," did not.


While she was open about many
things, she did not want to discuss the
actual shooting in detail.
"Don't think for a minute that I
don't hate what he did to me and
our family, but he was a good man.
I want him to be remembered as a
good man," Rebecca said.
At 4:38 p.m. last Thursday, the
sheriff's office responded to multiple
911 calls at Ken's Paint and Body
Shop located north of Starke on U.S.
301. Rebecca placed one of those
calls for help herself. Upon arrival
of emergency personnel to the scene,
she was immediately taken to Shands
UF where she was originally listed in
critical but stable condition.
She had been shot twice with a
small handgun, once in the shoulder
and once in the face. That bullet
entered at an angle near her temple
and exited under her jaw. While
she cannot eat much, she claimed


her facial injuries are not as severe
as some have said, and. although
doctors chose to leave the bullet
in her shoulder, she is expected to
make a full recovery. In fact, she
was released from the hospital the
next day.
She said she feels like she has
received a second chance at life.
Her husband was not as fortunate,
dying of a self-inflicted shotgun
wound sometime during a three-hour
standoff with law enforcement.
After shooting his wife, Tuten
was observed entering his residence,
located behind the business. Law
enforcement established a perimeter
around the residence, and shortly
thereafter, the Bradford County
Sheriff's Office SWAT team
responded to the scene.

Upg rades

will include

outages
BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

Over time and over budget, city
officials are' still upbeat about what
the ongoing project to upgrade
the voltage of the city's electric
distribution system could do for
electric costs.
The project that was supposed to
be completed by the end of 2007
should now be wrapped up by the
second or third week of March, said
Starke Operations Manager Ricky
Thompson.
Once the transformers on replaced
on each and every one of the city's
light poles, work will take place
at the substation like removing the
old step-down transformers and other
equipmert.that is no longer necessary
now that the city from a 4 to a 13
kilovolt system.
After the substation work, workers
will return to the field to begin
flipping switches on each of the
pole-mounted transformers from 4
to 13 kV. This will have to take place
circuit by circuit-the city has five
total, though that may be reduced
to four-with work in each circuit
.requiring a day to complete, even
with additional crews in the field.
On the day work is being performed
in a particular circuit, power will
be out for all of the customers in
that circuit, Thompson said. Workers
will be out in force working in the
scheduled circuit to make sure every
switch is set to the correct voltage
before the power is turned back on.
Thompson said the city would
try to plan some of the outages on
Saturday in order to inconvenience
electric customers, particularly
businesses, as little as possible.
The project has exceeded both the
money and time allotted for it. It was
just a larger project than either the
contractor or the city predicted. The
work pace has picked up, Thompson
said, expressing confidence in the
foreman that contractor Kohler
Construction Company has on the
job now.
As the project progressed, there
were additional issues that needed
to be addressed beyond upgrading
transformers and hardware-like
replacing and reframing poles and
"resagging" lines-and Thompson
said it was important that the job be
done correctly and thoroughly. After
all, it has been decades since a project
like this has been undertaken.
"When you've got that much to
change out over that much of an area
(6.5 square miles), it's overwhelming
at times," Thompson said.
Thompson said the project cost
would top $1.5 million by the time it
is complete, although the original bid
submitted by Kohler was $630,000.
However, in one recent piece of
See UPGRADE, p. 2A


It was a long wait, but the original
RJE schoolhouse, now known as the
Reno Recreation Center, is now in
the hands of the RJE alumni.
RJE Alumni Association President
Valara Petteway accepted the keys to
the building from Bradford School
Superintendent Harry Hatcher during
the district's most recent school board
meeting.
While black children in the
community had attended school at a
couple of other sites prior to 1913,,
the two-story, three-room school
house built at the corner of Florida
and Pine streets was a particularly
notable accomplishment as it was
constructed in a matter of months
by donations of money and labor
from the community it would come
to serve.
The school was named RJE after
three of the community leaders who
helped establish it, the Rev. James
Robinson, Professor A.O. Jenkins
and Robert Ellerson.
The school board voted
unanimously to deed the building
over to the RJE Alumni Association
last week, although School Board
Member David Smith wanted the
board to know the value of the
building and the property, which he
said was assessed at $26,104 and
$6,500 respectively.
The monetary value pales in
comparison to the sentimental value,
however.
"This is a building that was erected
almost 100 years ago," said Petteway.

"It was bought and paid for by the

Eventually the building was deeded

for public school funding.
While it has not functioned as a
schoolhouse for a number of years,
it was Used for community activities
and served as one of the sites for the
city of Starke's recreation program.


The program was pulled from the
building several years ago because
of increasing disrepair and safety
concerns..
While the school board completed
roofing and siding repair, a good deal
of work remains to be accomplished
in the historic schoolhouse before the
recreation program returns, according

Vivian Chappell


Chappell
announces
re-election
bid
. (The following is an
announcement of intention to
seek public office submitted by
the candidate.)
Hello, my name is Vivian
Chappell, and I am running
for school board member of
District 4. For those who know


me, I have represented you for
the last 16 years with a passion
for every child as if they were
my own. For those who do
not know me, I welcome the
opportunity to represent you
in this upcoming election year
and seek your support. I am
always open for ideas and
always concerned with issues
that affect the Bradford County
school system. Please feel free
to contact me at (352) 473-2690
and leave me a message.
I have been married to my
husband, Hiram, for 45 years,
have three children who
graduated from Bradford High
School, two grandchildren
who have graduated, and two
who are currently attending at
elementary and middle school
levels in this county. I believe
in the public school system and
feel that every child can learn,
and that we all are lifelong
learners. I am a licensed
practical nurse and got my start
in the PCT program offered
through the Bradford vocational
school. This school plays such
an integral part in the lives of
so many students, with many
opportunities, thanks to the
many dedicated people in the
system.
The first time I ran, I said
that our most important
resource is our children, and I


still believe that education must
be our top priority to ensure
that our children receive the
best education possible as they
are the future thinkers, policy-
makers and leaders of this great
country in which we live.
The frustration of too much
paperwork and not enough
time to teach continues to be
of concern to me as well as
all educators. Attendance
and increasing the numbers
of graduates is an area that'
I believe needs improvement.
The quality and future of
educational opportunities for
our children depend on strong
leadership and experienced
policy-makers to provide the
support needed for a strong
school system.
In my four terms representing
District 4, I have achieved
Master Board Certification
from the Florida School Board
Association. I continue to
work as a nurse and represent
many special-needs consumers
associated with The Arc of
Bradford County, where we
have students involved in
learning to become productive
citizens of the community.
I hope you have the continued
confidence in me to be your
voice as District 4 school
board member for the next four
years. .

correspondence with the city,
Kohler told the city that its bid
documents had been vague for
a project of this magnitude.
The project was realistically
a $5 million job, according
to the contractor, which has
provided more than 4,000 hour
of additional overtime work at
no additional cost to the city.
In the end, Thompson thinks
everyone will be pleased with
the project and the increased
reliability the upgraded system
provides customers. It should
also help cut costs by reducing
line loss in the system.
Line loss is the difference
between the amount -of


electricity customers pay for
based on their usage and the
actual amount of electricity
the city is purchasing from is
provider. Passing the additional
cost on to customers makes up
the difference.
Line loss averages 12 to 13
percent, going as high as 27
percent some months. That was
the case in May 2006 when
customers were billed for 5.07
million kilowatt-hours, but the
city actually received more than
6.9 million kilowatt-hours. The
cost of the additional electricity
lost by the system has to be
recaptured somewhere, so
customers wind up paying for
it on top of their actual usage.
If cost savings can be passed
along to customers once line
loss is reduced, it could help


offset the 10 percent increase
in electric costs predicted by
the city power provider Florida
Municipal Power Agency last
year.
FMPA said costs were rising
due to the expiration of two
low-rate power purchasing
contracts as well as the capital
costs associated with new
power plants.
While the city is preparing to
issue a request for proposals for
the electric rate study that will
follow the upgrade project-a
study that could lead to rate
adjustments-the city will
pass on additional costs in the
meantime through the fuel
adjustment.

Darabi done at landfill


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor
Gainesville engineer Frank
Darabi's firm is 0 for 2 now that
he has lost two local contracts,
first with Bradford County and
now with the New River Solid
Waste Association as well.
Darabi and Associates was
ranked third out of three firms
subrilitting qualifications to
serve as the engineer of record
at the New River Regional
Landfill. Landfill staff may yet
negotiate a new contract with
Darabi,but contract negotiations
will take place with two other
firms first, which realistically
makes Darabi's continued work
for the landfill unlikely.
Ranked first by the landfill's
top two staff members was
Jones Edmunds and Associates
of Gainesville. SCS Engineers
of Daytona Beach had the
number-two submission as


SHOOTING
Continued from p. 1A
Approximately three hours
elapsed while law enforcement
officers attempted to contact
Tuten via phone, mobile phone
and their PA system. Those
attempts were not successful.
At approximately 8:25 p.m.,
after firing several rounds
of chemical agents into the
structure, the SWAT team
entered and found Tuten's body
in one of the bedrooms.
Investigators have not
released a motive for the
initial shooting, although they
interviewed several witnesses.
It had only been a short time
since authorities took Tuten
into custody under the Baker
Act after he attempted suicide.
He overdosed on pills before
calling an employee, who
reported the suicide attempt to
authorities, Rebecca said.
She said Tuten was released
from Meridian Behavioral
Healthcare a week before the
slDoting and was in need of


scored by staff. Darabi's score
trailed the other two.
Originally, firms were
to be evaluated by ay an
outside consultant, but the
landfill association's board
abandoned that idea because
of cost, instructing Executive
Director Darrell O'Neal and his
assistant director, Perry Kent,
to undertake the evaluation
instead.
O'Neal and Kent both
recently expressed that they've
faced difficulty working with
Darabi, but the request for
qualifications from competing
engineers was really launched
after Bradford County
Commissioner Eddie Lewis, a
former member of the New
River board, raised questions
about engineering costs. Lewis
claimed Bradford County was
going to save money in ongoing
monitoring and maintenance
costs at its closed landfill after


treatment for severe depression.
Last May, a deputy arrested
Tuten for child abuse. He was
charged with striking the victim,
a juvenile, in the mouth.
Rebecca's children were
removed from the home, and
the last one just returned at
Christmas. Tuten, however,
was not allowed to be around
any of the children while there
was still a charge against him.
He had moved out of their
home, she said.
"When Kenny lost his family
that was everything to him,"
Rebecca said. "He fell into a
deep depression. He lost all
hope of getting his family back.
Kenny had not seen the kids for
seven months. The court dates
just kept continuing. Kenny
had not really worked for four
or five months. He could not
get life into perspective."
The man who shot her was
not the same man she knew a
year ago, she said.
"It is hard to6deal with all of
these emotions. There are so
many, I am angry one minute
and sad the next."


it selected a new engineer, and
he wanted to see New River do
the same.
Lewis' predicted savings to
Bradford County seemed to
have been proven true at the
most recent county commission
meeting.
Jones Edmunds'
representative told the county
commission earlier this month
that, over the six-month
period since Bradford County
contracted with the firm, the
county has saved more than
half what it would have spent
under its previous contract with
Darabi and Associates.
In addition to the written
submissions to New: River,
O'Neal and Kent followed up
with numerous phone calls to
verify or clarify information
contained therein. There were
no interviews before the
ranking, however, a fact Darabi
questioned.


Rebecca said they were
waiting for the child abuse
charge to be dropped, and that
might have happened at a court
appearance set for the 26th of
this month. That the matter was
close to potential resolution
makes the outcome that much
harder to deal with, she said.
Rebecca said she is holding
up because she knows the
children need her and because
so many have offered her
support.
"I am so grateful for my
support group. I have a great
group of family and friends that
have been there every step of
the way."
Rebecca plans to get back
to work next week, reopening
the business and asks only that
people are patient with her as
she begins to straighten things
out.
According to Capt. Randall
Zipperer, a final report from
the sheriff's office will not be
prepared until results from the
medical examiner's officer are
complete.


"Nointerviews?Nonothing?"
Darabi asked as the board was
preparing to vote to have staff
begin negotiating with top-
ranked Jones Edumunds.
Later, during the time set
aside for his comments, Darabi

Of the 172 acres at the farm,
130 acres is planted in trees. The
chapter is currently in the
process of thinning the stand of
timber and students recently
witnessed a controlled burn

Forestry on the chapter's land.
Students care for the tract of
pines and learn forestry skills in
the process. They also
periodically sell portions of the
timber to provide more funding
for chapter activities.
In addition to a wealth of
learning activities, FFA'ers also
complete community' service

how to be active volunteers. One
of those projects also provides
assistance for younger students.
Each year, FFA'ers participate

Pauline Malecki is Starke Elementary's Teacher of the Year


BY ARNIE HARRIS
Telegraph Staff Writer


As a lifelong kindergarten
teacher, Pauline Malecki has
had to possess those special
skills and qualities needed
to help young ones in their
sometimes difficult transition
from the safety and security
of home and family into a
new and strange educational
environment.
Malecki, with her warm
smile, humor and enthusiasm,
has proven herself more
than equal to the task. Prior
to her six years at Starke
Elementary School, where
she has been named Teacher
of the Year, Malecki taught
the same fledgling grade for
nearly 21 years at Brandywine
Elementary School in Michigan.
Previously, at the same school
she taught for almost 11 years
in the Beginning Readiness
Program, designed for young
students who were having
trouble reading.
Born and raised in Belleville,
: Mich., one of seven children


and the daughter of a truck
farmer, Malecki said her desire
to teach resulted from her love
of reading at a very early age.
Indeed, she said she was
reading, among other things,
the novels of Jane Austen and
the poetry of Robert Frost when
she was a third-grader.
"The librarian at my
elementary school let me read
aloud to students from the
lower grades," Malecki. said of
what was her first taste of the
teaching profession.
Graduating third in her class
out of a total of 75 students
at Lincoln Consolidated High
School in Brandywine, she went
on to attend Michigan State
University where, carrying a
double major, she received
her bachelor's degrees in child
development and science.
During her time teaching
in Michigan, she received
affirmation of her enduring
influence as a kindergarten
teacher when a former student,
at the time a junior in high
school, nominated her. for,
.and succeeded in having

Then news arrived that the
elementary school in San

Hampton fifth-grader takes

county spelling bee honors


BY ARNIE HARRIS
Telegraph Staff Writer

As the Bradford County
Spelling Bee was about to begin
at the Santa Fe Community
Cultural Center on Jan. 30, a
dozen students sat on the stage
in eager anticipation.
The 12 were made up of
the winners and runners up
in contests held at each of
the county's five elementary
schools and Bradford Middle
School:.
The contestants were, from
Brooker Elementary School,
Hailey Prescott and William
Forsythe; from Hampton
Elementary, Jake Johnson and
Treavor Gilliam; from Lawtey
Community, Trey White and
Michael Selph; from Southside
Elementary, Grant Dennison
and Michael Taylor; from
Starke Elementary, Autumn
Rodgers and John Crews and
from BMS, Joseph Murhee and
Dustin Corbitt.
The spelling bee, sponsored
by the Florida Times-Union
newspaper, consisted of four

LANDFILL
Continued from p. 3A

National 2004 Gold Excellence
Award for its work with the
New River landfill from the
Solid Waste Association of
North America.
Likewise, Darabi has been
with the landfill since its
inception, and he took credit
in his submission for the
innovation and implementation
of new technologies at the
landfill. He said innovations like
the development and patenting
of a new liner system for the
landfill cells has saved millions
of dollars in construction costs.

2007 audit a
clean one
Tim Coleman of DDF CPA
group delivered a clean audit
to the association for the 2007
fiscal year. The landfill is in
good overall financial shape,
Coleman said, with a fund
balance of more than $12
million. With $7.1 million in
revenue and $4.6 million in
operating expenses, net assets
increased by $2.46 million,
although this was $600,000
less than the prior fiscal year
because of an expected increase
in future closing costs.
The association completed
construction of Cell 5 in 2007
and replaced some operating
equipment. Whereas past cell
construction and equipment
replacement was accomplished

stage, while many
family members
sat.
Once completed,
it was then time
for the first round
of the contest to
begin.
As the students
were called up
randomly one-
by-one, they were
asked by Eugenia
Whitehead, retired
school board
curriculumdirector,
to spell words
such as "irony,"
"manicure,"
"participant" and
"canasta."
Five were
thereby eliminated,
leaving seven left
on the stage. This k
was reduced to four
after the second
round, which
featured words to
be spelled such as
"magnolia," and
"paradox."
The third round, with
words such as "academy" and
"ingenious, winnowed the
contestants down to two-
Treavor Gilliam and Joseph
Murhee.
After Murhee misspelled


*championship
by successfully
spelling the word
B"leotard." Murhee
took runner-up
honors.
"He studied a
long time for this,"
said Gilliam's
mother, Tammy
Morgan. "He loves
to learn and to take
on a challenge."
All of the
contestants received
a special' gift bag
filled with school
supplies.
Gilliam will
advance to the
Regional Spelling
Bee to be held on
Saturday, Feb. 23,
at the Main Library
in Jacksonville.


with funds from lending
institutions, these projects were
completed for the first time
with operating cash flow.
In addition, the.association
paid down $300,000 in costs
associated with past purchases,
eliminating interest payments
and making the association
"debt-free" for the first time
since the landfill opened.
Coleman congratulated the
board on that and on working
to get the association's money
into higher interest-bearing
accounts. Interest earnings
increased by $125,000 over the
prior fiscal year, Coleman said.
Future landfill closure
and monitoring costs are an
ongoing financial obligation,
and that obligation increased by
$541,000 because of the need to
record more than $847,000 in
"future closing and monitoring
costs. Approximately $6.1
million in total has been set
aside for this purpose to date.
A delay on the part of the
engineer in calculating the
required closure escrow
amount for 2007 meant the full
amount was not deposited until
after the end of the fiscal year.
This accounted for the only
finding of noncompliance by
theNuditor and was considered
immaterial.Adeposit exceeding
the amount of the minimum
required deposit was made in
December, and staff has said it
will continue to make quarterly*
deposits, obtaining closure
escrow calculations in a timely
manner.

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



World War II will come to life at Keystone Airport


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
The Keystone Heights
Airport is planning to have
quite an impressive display of
history on display this
weekend in the form of aircraft
and various other vehicles
from the World War II years,
yet Bob Oehl, the executive
director of a museum that will
open in the future at the
airport, said what people
should really come out for is to
interact with the living,
breathing history in the form
of that great war's veterans.
Friday, Feb. 22, will mark


the first stop for the Collings
Foundation's Wings of
Freedom Tour, which will
bring three World War, II
bombers to the Keystone
Heights Airport for a four-day
stay. Opportunities are


available to the public to not
only tour these planes, but to
ride in them and receive B-25
flight instruction.
World War II reenactors
representing both American
and German combatants will


be on site, but there will be
several veterans of the real
variety for the public to meet
and greet.
Oehl, who participates in the
Wings of Freedom Tour as the
pilot of the North American B-


25 Mitchell bomber, said
opportunities are becoming
increasingly rare to talk to
such people as approximately
1,500 World War II veterans
are dying every day.
"This is the most important


thing that's ever happened in
this area, period," Oehl said.
"It likely will never happen
again just because of the age of
these individuals."

Casey Hines shows off
the medal he received
for his third-place state
finish.


Bradford's

Hines places

third in state
BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
Bradford High School junior
Casey Hines went 4-1 and
captured third place at the
Florida High School Athletic
Association Wrestling Finals
Feb. 14-16 in Lakeland.
"He wrestled his tail off,"
Bradford coach Joe Van
Vactor said.
Hines was making his
second straight appearance at
the state tournament, but this
year was, by far, more
memorable, he said.
Hines' only loss was to
Pasco's Eric Stroud, who
would go on to win the state
championship in the 215-
pound class.
"He was one of the strongest
guys I went against all year,"
Hines said.
Hines admitted he was a
little depressed after dropping
that match, which occurred in
the third round. However, he
decided finishing third was a
lot better than finishing sixth.
Stroud defeated Hines 12-3,
but Hines bounced back to
defeat John Sennet of
Monsignor Pace 7-0. He then
claimed third place by
defeating Riverdale's Trey
Dunn 5-3.
Dunn was ranked number
one in the state entering the
tournament, but Hines was
clearly better conditioned, Van
Vactor said. In fact, Van
Vactor said Hines was
probably in better shape than
everybody else in the 215-

Editorial/Opinion

'It wasn't his fault'


Sad and heart rendering, the words
above were spoken by Samantha Hall
'in the eulogy of her boyfriend Joshua
Ammirato, killed in a fiery, early-
morning automobile crash on Jan.
26. Four other Marion County young
men, ages 18-20, died with him in a
high-speed, single-vehicle crash that
defies the word "accident."
By definition, an accident is
a happening that is not expected,
foreseen or intended. While the crash
was not intended, whether it was
foreseen or expected is questionable.
The vehicle virtually "flew" down
an airport runway at 140 mph in the
predawn hours. The car, a 2008 BMW,
skidded and turned sideways, went up
and over an 80-85-foot embankment,
flew 200 feet in the air, and struck a
tree about 15 feet above the ground.
The car was engulfed in flames, and
the driver and four passengers died
instantly.
To believe an accident is not
foreseen or expected at speeds over
100 mph in a passenger car is naive at
best, especially on a one-and-a-half-
mile airstrip at night. At excessive
speeds-and speeding above 100 mph
is excessive-move from unexpected
and unforeseen to predictable. The
famed B-17 Bomber, weighing in at
57,000 pounds, took off at 115-120
mph.
Samantha's grief is understandable,
but her comment, "It wasn't his fault,"
begs the question who, then, was at
fault? While Ammirato was holding


the steering wheel at the time of the
crash, responsibility goes back much
further and encompasses individuals,
manufacturers, politicians and the
public.
Why would anyone buy a car
capable of running 140 mph? There
isn't a highway anywhere on which
passenger cars can be safely driven
at top speed, not even on the German
autobahns, the finest highways in the
world.
Automobile manufacturers build
cars that people will buy, and the
public (that's us) demands fast cars.
The desire for speed is inherent in
people. Marathons and racing have
been part of human .culture for
thousands of years.
In the United Statesdfiffic accidents
claim the lives of about 42,000 people
a year, with injuries 40 times the
fatalities; Florida traffic accidents
claim 3,000 to 4,000 lives each year.
This is a terrible toll of lives to lose for
the time we gainr by driving"t o fast
for conditions, or-multi-tasking while
behind the wheel., Unfortunately, far
too many victims are: under age 25 at
the very cusp of life,
Pogo, a comic sirii character and an
inhabitant of the Okefertokee Swamp,
said it quite well (although it was
not original with him) in the much-
publicized quote, "We, have met the
enemy, and he is us."
By Buster Rahn,
Telegraph Editorialist


John Cooper
owes citizens
apology
Dear Editor:
Commissioner John Cooper
owes the citizens of Bradford
County an apology for his
misleading statements in a
recent Telegraph.
His attack on oil companies
profits showed his Hillary-
Clinton-socialist-type thinking.
Profits made by these
companies belong to those that
had the faith to invest their
hard earned money in them.
These investors include
teachers, firemen, police,
doctors, lawyers and all the
workers who manage to save a
few dollars in spite of our
higher taxes.
The main purpose of
government should be the
health and safety of the
citizens.
Health and safety includes
police, fire, garbage, recreation
and a few other items. We
have plenty of tax money to do
these required things from our
tax base.
People who buy homes on
unpaved roads know what they
are buying. If these people
want to pave their roads, there
should be a special assessment
on their properties benefiting
from the paving. This way, be
it small property owners or the
large property owners could
pay according to the amount of


front footage that person
owned.
John Cooper, ask yourself
why that tax money you used
to pave roads with is gone. The
taxpayers are fed up with your
type of spending.
Clayton P. Perry

Hampton
proud of
local hero,
Major Rogers
Dear Editor:
We in Hampton would like
to express our deepest
sympathies to the family of
Major Alan Rogers for their
loss.
We also want his family to
know what deep sense of pride
and honor we feel to know that
a true American Patriot called
Hampton his home. We know


there are a lot of good people
who have been raised in
Hampton and a lot of good
people living here now. People
will go the extra mile to help
those in need and Major
Rogers embodied the best of
what we have to offer, not just
in Hampton but in the United
States as a whole.
As comfort in their grief his
family can have the knowledge
that without people like Major
Rogers we couldn't enjoy the
freedoms of being American. I
hope the young people of
Bradford County are inspired
to do something meaningful
with their lives in honour-of
his ultimate sacrifice to make
that a possibility.
James P Mitzel, Mayor and
Jane Hall. City Manager

The only way around is

Legal drug
dealers
ruining lives
Dear Editor:
First I am not trying to
attack or judge any individual
that. may work or be affiliated
with any business that I make
reference to. I am trying to
paint a more broad picture.
How many more lives have to
be ruined by "legal" drug
dealers' pharmaceuticals.
Please remember I'm not
labeling every sickness or
ailment across the board in
what I'm going to say.
A lot of our ills these days
are our doing. It matters what
we feed our body, spirit and
soul (mind). Our body, given
the right nutrients, is
remarkable at healing, itself.
But correction is hard to bear,
so we would rather, have the
quick fix. Now I'm not saying
doctors aren't needed. But
many doctors have become
little more than "pill pushers."


I have experienced first hand a
ride on the med-merry-go-
round with a loved one.
.. .Yon.'.stLwm tlt.i on8alinmeoi;
so you .get, your, potion and,
your '*sp 6eltsbwvih w coes
more ill side effects. So now
you need more potions and
spells to cure those ills. Why?
Because it was all hocus-
pocus.
Why am I calling the meds
potions and the instructions
spells?
.Well the word pharmacy
comes from the Greek word
pharmakeia.
And that word is translated
as sorcery in the Bible. A few
definitions of liharmakeia, are
medicine,- drugs, spells
witchcraft, and poisoning.
There's a lot more. It's worth
looking into.
Our creator instructs us in
the life guide, he gave to us
how to avoid, all of our
failings. Come on, shepherds,
your flocks need to be feeding
on truth and relying on God
our father, for all of our needs.
Oh, but wait, we'veaiready
created a solution for any


problems that we may
encounter in life. My mother
told me her daddy would say
1As tbne gOWson',people will
becomeoe more wise but
tw'eaker.v' Tru& Ev'en with all
of our wisdom we still will
chose the quick fix that will
only disguise and not get to the
root of the problem, because
it's always easier to believe a
lie than to search for the truth.

New Per eptions

aiver agency dedicated to keeping individuals with developmental disai
homes and institutions and helping them re main independent for as long as possible
4ons has the services needed to accomplish this and we pride ourselves in giving our cons,
nation, exposure, and experience. Director Tina Hutchins has 22 years of experience in the fielc
developmental disabilities and her staff as well has decades of experience.
Established in 2001
Specializing in Supported Living and Supported Employment,
and also supplying PCA, Companion, Respite, In-Home Supports


Supported Living:

Our Supported Living program has received the highest
score possible on state review for the last 3 years. We
attribute this to our coaches' ability to teach our consumers
the skills needed to be independent, self-advocating, and safe
when faced with day-to-day situations. Our coaches also
make it a priority to ensure that our consumers are not
exploited and know their rights.
Our consumers in Supported-Living have some of the
cleanest apartments and homes in their communities. We
hold our consumers to the same. standards that we hold
ourselves. They have all-had the ability and they pride
themselves irlhaving clean and sanitary environments.
Consumers in our Supported Living program are taught
skills to manage their own health such as cooking healthful
meals, staying within dietary needs, making phone calls to
set up appointments, calling in refills for medications, and all
other areas related to health.
At New Perceptions, we pride ourselves in having
knowledgeable staff members who can teach consumers all
needed skills and information to keep them healthy and
independent for as long as possible.
In Supported Living, our consumers choose where and
with whom they live. They are assisted with managing their
finances with the fewest restrictions possible, although if a
representative payee is needed, New Perceptions will
provide one while training the consumer to have as much
control as possible related to their specific situation or need.
Our Supported Living program is designed to assist
individuals with developmental disabilities only to the extent
that is needed to ensure continued independence-not to take
over or control their lives.


PCA Program:
Our PCA program is made up of staff with the special gift of being able to
assist others with their most private personal care. Our staff receives training
in privacy and in how to assist someone and ensure their health, safety and
welfare, while being as discrete as possible. New Perceptions has a large
population of consumers who receive these services and have done so for
years with the same providers. We like to keep our consumers feeling
comfortable while using only our best and most experienced staff. Our PCA
providers are trained in any special areas of concern related specifically to
any consumer's need.


Supported Employment:

Our Supported Employment program, although new, is
growing by leaps dnd bounds. We started out with one coach
and are now in need of more. We love this program. It
enables our consumers to excel in jobs, which just a few
years ago, they would not have thought they could have.
We have consumers working at job sites from restaurants
to hotels to large retail chains to filing rooms in
doctors'offices. We have consumers who have had their jobs
for more than 10 years.,
We hope to assist consumers in getting jobs in something
other than janitorial skills or washing dishes. We believe
there are consumers in our community who can be
successful-with h6e right, encouragement and training-in
more mainstreari jobs, not just working in janitorial services,
cleaning, and washing dishes.
We always like to emphasize training. Training is the key
to success for our consumers. If a consumer fails at a job, it
is due to lack of proper training or issues that are beyond the
consumer's control such as layoffs, business closings, or lack
of business. The consumer does not fail due to his or her
inability.
Most consumers, no matter what age, severity of disability,
or skills, have the ability to work at a job in the community.
Our goal is to get as many consumers as possible employed
in jobs that pay at least minimum wage. Others would not
accept less, why should the developmentally disabled?



Companion, In-Home Supports and Respite:
Under these services, our consumers have built many lasting
relationships with community pillars such as the Lions Club, North Florida
Regional Chamber of Commerce, Hometown Realtors, Bradford County
Telegraph, Charlotte's Bistro, Dolly's Restaurant, Heritage Villas
Apartments, Pine Forest Apartments, Starke Police Department, Bradford
County Public Library, Citgo, and the Veterans Administration.
We would like to thank all of these entities and all other retail stores in
our community. These services afford our consumers the ability to get out
in the community and build natural and generic relationships that will last
lifetimes.
With this service, our consumers are trained in basic life skills such as
pedestrian safety, recognition of monetary denomination, money
management, etc., through education, exposure and experiences.


Qualified Staff? Our staff attends a lot of training in specialized areas such as: Ahliheimer's, diabetes, medications and their possible side effects and contradictions,
physical therapy, district specific training, etc. Staff members are, at all times, aware ancl knowledgeable of HIPPA regulations, confidentiality and privacy. We expect all
pertinent information to be protected by our staff. All staff members have training in CPR and in dealing with blood borne pathogens. All staff members have to meet state
requirements of a Level 2 background screening, sign an affidavit of good moral character, :h ave at least one year of experience, have earned a high school diploma or GED, and
pass a local background screening. We make no exceptions.

TOUR
Continued from page 1B

All in all, it should be quite
an atmosphere from Friday,
Feb. 22, through Monday, Feb.
25, Ochl said.
The Wings of Freedom Tour
begins with the arrival of the
three bombers at
approximately I p.m. on Feb.
22. Ochl figures to be the first
to arrive in the B-25. He will
have a special co-pilot-a
WASP, or Women Air
Services Pilot.
The two bombers that will
follow Oehl are the Boeing B-
17 Flying Fortress and the
Consolidated B-24 Liberator.
Oehl said the B-24 is the most
rare airplane one can see flying
'he skies.
"There were 18,500
Liberators built," Oehl said. "It
was the most produced
airplane in World War II, but
this is the last one in the world
flying."
Tours, rides and B-25 flight
instruction will be available
after the bombers' arrival until
5 p.m. Walk-through tours of
the planes is $10 for adults and
$5 for children 12-under.
Flights are $425 per person for
the B-17 and B-24 bombers
and $325/$400 per person for

There will be plenty to see

World War II-era
motorcycles-American,
British and German-which
includes a BMW bike that will
be towing an anti-aircraft gun
that works.
Camp Blanding and the
Military Vehicle Preservation
Association will also be
bringing various vehicles.
"There will be a lot for
people to see outside of
airplanes," Oehl said.
Though if you want to see
planes, you will have the
opportunity. Besides the
bombers, there will be
performances by world
championship aerobats on Feb.
23 and Feb. 24.
Oehl said the event is about
the veterans as much as it-is -
anything else. With that in
mind, visitors have a unique
opportunity on Feb. 23 at 1


p.m. when a first-ever event
for Florida will take place-a
meeting of the American
Fighter Pilots Aces
Association, with four Aces in
attendance. Two of the Aces
who will be in attendance are
founding members of the
VMF-323 Death Rattlers and
VF-17 Jolly Rogers fighter
squadrons.
All four Aces have lengthy
lists of impressive
accomplishments.
"Their bios make James
Bond look like a librarian,"
Oehl said.
At 3 p.m. on the same day,
there will be a tribute to World
War II combat airmen.
WASPs will be honored
during another tribute,
scheduled for 11 am. on Feb.
24. Oehl said one of the
WASPs who will be in
attendance is Bea Haydu.
"She is the WASP who went
with Sen. Barry Goldwater and
Gen. Hap Arnold's son before
Congress in 1977 and secured
veterans' benefits for the
WASPs," Oehl said.
A special event will take
place the night of Feb. 23-a
USO-style dance from 6:30
p.m. until 9 p.m. The event
will feature the 22-piece Clay
County Swing Band Ensemble.
Tickets to this event are $20
when purchased by today, Feb.
21, and $25 when purchased at
the door. Call (352) 256-8037
for more information.
The dance is a fundraiser for
the Wings of Dreams Museum,
which will open in the future at
the Keystone Airport.

A museum of
aviation dreams
When you think about it, is
there a better place to house a
vintage aircraft museum than
at the Keystone Heights
Airport? Oehl would say no,
and not just because the airport
is a logical place to show off
historical aircraft.
"A portion of (the airport)
was a German POW camp
back during the
unpleasantries," Oehl said. "A
lot of people don't know that."
Oehl is the executive
director of Wings of Dreams.
Susan King'is the managing
director and curator of the
museum, which will also serve
as a restoration center for
vintage aircraft, or "warbirds,"
as they are called.
The idea for such a museum
began before he became
involved with the Wings of
Freedom Tour,-- but -his,
experiences on that tour really) .
cemei ied the"project. Oehl
would return home with
"phenomenal" stories from the
veterans he talked to-stories

When you purchase an
automobile, what's the first
thing you take care of before
driving around town? You've
got to get insurance, of
course. It's no different
when you're ready to buy a
home, but you have some
more options.
First, understand that
there are four basic types of
insurance, some required,
some not. Title insurance
protects you. in the event that
title to the property is found
to be in question. You defi-
nitely want to purchase title
insurance as part of the clos-
ing transaction.
Homeowner's insurance
provides coverage in cases
of theft, damage and liabili-
ty. Your lender will require
this policy, so this is another
absolute necessity.
Flood insurance may or


may not be required,
depending on the location of
your new home. The federal
government provides this
policy to cover replacement
value of the home and its
contents. Consult with a
local real estate agent to
determine necessity and
restrictions.
Finally, a newer and very
popular form of "insurance"
is the home warranty, often
provided by the seller as
"peace of mind" for the
buyer. These are often one-
year policies that cover
repairs to systems and appli-
ances, and more details on
this are coming up in my
next column. In the mean-
time, consult with a real
estate agent if you have any
questions or concerns about
any of the insurance policies

Tigers can't withstand P.K. Yonge rally, lose by 11


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
Everything seemed to be
going right for the Union
County Tigers, but P.K. Yonge
came out looking like a brand
new team in the second half,
outscoring the Tigers 40-16 en
route to a 51-40 win in a Class
3A regional boys' basketball
quarterfinal game on Feb. 14
in Lake Butler.
Union held a 13-point lead
'at the half, but the Blue Wave
scored 20 straight points in the
third quarter to take a one-
'point lead.
Sampson Jackson did his
,best to keep the Tigers (17-11)
in it. He scored 10 points in the
fourth quarter, including two
on a drive to the basket that
tied the game at 36-all with
five minutes to play.
However, Jackson scored
the team's only points in the
quarter. His game-tying basket
was followed by four
consecutive misses. P.K.
Yonge, which played Williston
in a semifinal game this past
Tuesday, went up by 10 during
that span.
"We couldn't match their
intensity late in the game,"
Union head coach Lee Clark
said.
The second half didn't start
ff so bad for the Tigers, as
they scored three straight to
open the third quarter. Chris
enfield came up with a steal
sand scored on a layup to put
Ithe Tigers up 28-12.
t That would be the final
score for the Tigers until
lackson hit a 3-pointer off of
,an inbounds play with less
-lhan a minute left in the
iluarter. By that point, P.K.
WYonge (22-6) had rallied and
Overtaken the Tigers, getting

pound class with the exception
f Stroud.
. "(Hines) never got winded,"
:Van Vactor said.
Hines' road to medal
contention began with two
consecutive pins. He
;dispatched of Bartow's Mark
1KeeTv in 5:23, then defeated
tIftfliFf b ns' Peter
Fere'ncik in 3:18.
That equaled Hines' win
total at last year's state
tournament, but this year's
tournament was more fun, of
course, because he came home
this year with a medal.
i However, Hines admitted he
was a little depressed that he
brought the only medal home
to Bradford County. Fellow
BHS wrestler Billy Brooks
was also making his second
straightt state finals appearance,
but he went 1-2 in the 140-
pound class and failed to place
in the top six, which would
have earned him a medal
Van Vactor said Brooks,
'vho is also a junior, faced
gome stiff competition.
"Billy was in a very, very
tough weight class where you
had three state players from the
year before," Van Vactor said,
adding that seven total
wrestlers in that class were
Itate qualifiers last year.

Another 3-pointer by

The Tigers actually came up
with some big plays
immediately after the Jackson
score that made the score 36-
all. Clyde Barringer drew a
charge-the fifth of the game
called against P.K. Yonge-
while Frankie Caldwell
blocked a shot.
However, the Tigers could
just not get the scores they
needed. P.K. Yonge made 12-
of-14 free throws in the final
three minutes _to complement
two field goals, while the
Tigers could only get two
baskets from Jackson.


Brooks put -forth a good
effort, Van Vactor said, but the
coach said he didn't agree with
a referee's call that went
against Brooks in his final
match.
"I wish the cards would've
gone. his way," Van Vactor
said.
The tournament for Brooks
began with a 13-3 loss to
Zephyrhills' Robbie Kunkle,
but he bounced back to record
his first-ever slate' finals 'i in

Brooks was eliminated this
year by Clewiston's Jos6


The second half was a sharp
contrast to what occurred in
the first half. P.K. Yonge
converted on just two of 25
field goal attempts and
committed eight turnovers.
Still, it was just a one-point
Tigers lead after the first
quarter, but Union scored 11
straight to open the second.
Barringer scored all nine of
his points in the second
quarter. He opened the scoring
with,a rebound putback, which
was followed by another
rebound putback by Alvin
Jernigan. Barringer had
another score before Caldwell
beat the Blue Wave defense
down the court to receive a
long pass off of a defensive
rebound and score, putting the
Tigers up 17-8.

his team simply got tired in the
second half, but he saw his
players forcing shots and
making too many trips down
the floor without getting a shot
attempt.
Another thing that hurt the
Tigers, he said, was the
absence of Caldwell in the
offense. The 6-4 center had
just three points.
"Frankie's been our go-to
guy all year and they kind of
took him away," Clark said.

Bradford jv
basketball
team goes
undefeated
BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
One last game stood
between the New England
Patriots and perfection. They
couldn't pull it off.
Bradford's junior varsity
boys' basketball team,
however, did put the finishing
touches on an undefeated
season, defeating Union
County 56-25 on Feb. 1.
It was just one more in a
string of easy victories for the
Tornadoes, who finished the
year 18-0. Bradford's average
margin of victory this year was
27 points. The win over Union
County marked the sixth time-
the Tornadoes had;won a game
by more than 30 points. The
margin was more than 40
points in four of those games.
Only one game was decided
by less than 10 points. That


They say winning isn't everything, but that's all the Bradford junior varsity boys'
basketball team did, compiling an 18-0 record. Pictured are: (front, I-r) Isaiah

was a 55-48 win over
Middleburg.
The next closest game was
an 11-point win over
Interlachen.
Coach Mark McGraw said
his team's unselfishness was
one of the keys to this year's
success. Darrin Blye and Jarvis
Davis were some of the
offensive leaders, while Davis
and Marcus Ardley were some
of the defensive leaders.
However, McGraw said any
player on a given night could
step up and contribute.
"They just played well
together," McGraw said. '"All
of them played with 100-
percent intensity."
Athleticism was another
key, McGraw said. His players
were able to use that
athleticism to create turnovers
off of their pressure defense.
"We got a lot of baskets in
transition," McGraw said.
In the season-concluding
game against Union, the
Tornadoes led by five after the
first quarter. Treyonte
Covington scored all nine of
his points'in the second quarter
to help Bradford outscore the
Tigers 18-2 and build a 31-10
halftime lead.
Blye led the Tornadoes with
13 points, while Davis and
Donelle Williams each scored
12. Williams hit two shots
from beyond the arc, while
Davis was 4-of-6 from the foul
line.
Isaiah Jenkins and Reggie

points for Bradford, while
Yakeem Griner scored two.

Keystone Heights opened its
District 6-3A softball schedule
with a big win, defeating the
host Crescent City Raiders 23-

The Indians (3-2 prior to
Feb. 19) needed just three hits
to push 13 runs across in the
first inning. Crescent City put
plenty of Keystone runners on
base through errors, walks and
hit batters.
Keystone scored seven more
runs in the second inning off of
just one hit. The final three
runs occurred in the third
inning, again off of one hit.
Lindsay Harp went 3-for-5
at the plate for the Indians,
while Ashlee Cirigliano and
Kim Russell went 2-for-3 and
2-for-4, respectively. One of
Cirigliano's hits was a double.
Tori Jolley and Sam. SibLey


were each I-for- 1.
Harp (2-0) was the winning
pitcher, allowing three hits and
striking out four.

KH baseball
team defeats
BHS 3-0
BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Stqff Writer
Clayton Mosley gave up just
two hits and struck out 11 to
help the Keystone Heights
baseball team defeat visiting
Bradford 3-0 on Feb. 15.
Mosley also drove in the
first run of the game on a
sacrifice fly in the first inning
that scored Brett Anderson.
That would prove to be all the
run support he needed.
"The tone he set, pitching-
wise, was awesome," said
Keystone head coach Alan
Mattox, whose team improved
to 1-1.
Bradford (0-2) had some
opportunities to score. The
Tornadoes had runners on first
and second in the third inning,
but Mosley pitched his way
out of the inning. Later, he
would record a strikeout to end
a, threat in the fifth inning,
when Bradford had runners on
second and third.
"He did a great job,"
Bradford head coach Lamar
Waters said of Mosley.
Mosley was not the only
pitcher who put forth a solid
outing. Bradford's David
Duncan earned the loss, but he
allowed five hits and struck
out eight. -
Anderson set up Keystone's
first scoring opportunity when
he reached on one of just two

walks given up by Duncan.
Anderson stole second, then
was brought around by a Cole
Belote single and Mosley's
sacrifice fly.
In the second inning,
Keystone went up 2-0 after
executing a double steal,
which brought Zach Davis
across home plate. ._
The Indians (1-1 prior to
Feb. 19) pushed one more run
across in the second when
Ryan Latner scored on a single
by Belote, who finished the
game 3-for-3 at the plate.

Indians, Tornadoes
both open regular
.season with losses
Neither Mattox nor Waters
thought his team played well
as each opened the regular
season with losses.
Keystone traveled to St.
Augustine on Feb. 14 to play
Menendez, which handed the
Indians a 5-0 loss.
"We really played bad,"'
Mattox said.
Keystone's offense had just
two hits, but the Indians also
had their struggles on defense.
Mattox said' pitcher Nick
Riemer played well enough to
give his team a chance to win,
but the Indians committed five
errors behind him.
Errors hurt the Tornadoes,


too, in their season opener, a 5-
2 loss to Fort White on Feb. 12
in Starke.
Waters said his team did not
come to play, and his players
admitted as much afterward,
he said. Waters said the
players took Fort White lightly
since Union County beat Fort
White in a preseason game,
and Bradford, in turn, beat
Union in preseason play.
"Mentally,' we weren't
there," Waters said.
Still, the Tornadoes trailed
just 1-0 going into the fifth,
mainly due to the performance
of pitcher Justin Fogarty. Of
Fogarty's 89 pitches in five
innings, 56 were strikes.
"He pitched well enough to
get the win," Waters said.
Fort White's 1-0 lead
became 5-0 after Bradford
committed two errors in the
fifth inning.
The Tornadoes committed
-four errors in all, which led to
four unearned runs.
Bradford finally got on the
scoreboard in the sixth. Trey
Winkler led off with a walk
and stole second before
scoring on a single by Duncan.

Jernard Beard scored
Bradford's final run in the
seventh. He singled and stole
second before scoring ,on John
Ryan Palladino's single.
