BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor
The only definite winner in
Tuesday's primary was Vivian
Chappell, whose has won a
fifth term as the school board
member representing District 4.
Other "winners" still have their
biggest fights ahead of them.
That includes -Gordon Smith,
who received more votes than any
candidate in any race on the ballot
in his bid to be sheriff. He will
face David Barnes in November,
the candidate Republicans
supported nearly two to one.
The other, outstanding vote-
getter was Jim Biggs, running
for superintendent of schools
as a Democrat, who carried his
race with nearly 80 percent of-
the vote. In the tighter race to
be the Republicans' November
candidate for superintendent,
Beth Moore rose to the top.
T he county commission race
in District 3 also produced
two candidates for November.
Republican Dan Sikes barely
won the day with just nine
more votes than the runner-up.
Democrat Lila Sellars enjoyed a
surer victory with the support of
67 percent of the voters.

Fay's costs sti

unknown


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor
Figures are still being tabulated
on the damage to property and
What the impact of multiple days
of rain from Tropical Storm Fay
will cost the county.
According to Emergency
Management Director Brian
J6hns, the storm brought, an
average of 8 inches of rain
countywide, although some
areas saw as much 14 inches fall.
There were up to 30 mph winds,
too, he said, with occasional
downbursts, and even reports
of a tornado seen in the Bayless
Highway area.
In all about 15 homes suffered
some form of damage. Tree
limbs and wind damaged roofs
and rising storm water infiltrated
some residences. Although
rain and runoff raised the flood
prone Sampson Lake some 30
inches, Johns believed the lake
had crested as of Tuesday before
water flooded residents' homes.


Animals at the shelter were
evacuated to the fairgrounds
because of the shelter's
proximity to Alligator Creek and
the amount of runoff flowing
into and through the creek.
Thousands lost power at some
point, often due to trees damaging
power lines. The county added
additional crews and volunteers
assisted in cutting and moving
debris when trees blocked roads,
fell on property or damaged
electrical infrastructure. Crews
from the city of Starke and other
utilities were out in the' rain
restoring power to customers as
soon as they could.
Following a briefing on the
storm Friday morning, County
Manager Brad Carter said
it was good to see so many
agencies working together.
Paul Funderburk, the county's
road department director,
expected it would be next week
before damaged roads were
See FAY, p. 3A


The much-maligned storm water pond next to the Bradford County Public Library did what it
was designed to do in the face of Tropical Storm Fay, retaining water that otherwise would have
accumulated on 301, Pratt Street and surrounding areas. The pond, or lake as some call it, is a
project paid for by the water management district and Department of Transportation.

Schools could face more cuts as year progresses

The last few months of
the 2007-08 school year were
affected by an unexpected
midyear funding cut that left
administrators and staff doing

some of the money being
cut had already been spent.
Purchasing was restrained
and hiring ,. as frozen.

Amendment 5 would replace
property taxes collected by
school districts with funding
from a higher state sales tax.
The case appeal has been
passed directly to the state's
highest court.
With No. 5 potentially out of
the way, however, opponents
have turned their'attacks on
Amendments 7 and 9, which,
among other things., deal with
the use of public dollars in
private schools (and other
faith-based programs'i.
Hatcher said it's eai, fnr
him to see both sides of these
issue-as a lai\payer .and
businessman, and as a school
leader, lie said. The idea of
lowering taxes in whatever
jay is, appealing. partiularl]
to the business comnlmurlinli',. lie
said, as is the idea. of cuttiiig

"At the sante time. L%.ithi

"We understand the need
for lowering expenses. at
the same time \ou can't just
casually say we're going
to do this and not have a
revenue source." Hatcher
said. "It" you don't ha.e that
revenue source. somine service
has got to be cut "
"And that ser\ ice is
education." Assistani
Superintendent Lisa Pre\att


added, highlighting the
critical nature of these issues
for the district.
After funding for the
schools was approved this
year, Gov. Charlie Crist asked
state agencies to hold back an
additional 4 percent in case
the state continues to struggle
economically and revenue

reduces the shortfall to $1 5
billion. Still. Crist is left to
look to state reserves to help
fund the S66 billion budget.


There is also the 4 percent
holdback the governor
requested of all state agencies,
which if turned into actual
cuts, reportedly represents
about $1 billion.
Hatcher said people don't
generally understand that
the state budget is based on
such forecasts but economic
realities have proved those
torec,.iss inac:curiatc inorethani
once oer the past Louple of
sears. Prior to the latest news
that the budget approved
in May would be short the
additional 51.S billion, state
revenue had already fallen
off $6 billion.
What it means for the
school system. however, i.,
that eser time there is ne-,
that the state is collecting
les,, than projected. the result
'ill be additional cuts to
education.
But why does it always
seem like education is one of
the first areas to be affected by
funding reductions'.' Hatcher
said it's because education
makes up such a large portion
of the state budget. K-12
education receives about a
third of the state's money.
"It's been a major gobbler
of the budget." he s.aid. and
just like the school district
has done when faced inhth
cutback,. legis-lators huae
targeted education because
of the en.ormity of the costs
there
According to Hatcher
and education lobbyist Bob
Cerra. the stade has reduced
funding by more than 16l
percent in the last 16 months.
Education had been cut more
than an\ other state agencs.
Pre'att added.
The cuts ma\ be


her goal.
Not so for the winner
of the District 21 House
race, Charles Van Zant, the
Republican candidate who
will face Democrat Linda
Myers in the race to replace
Rep. Joe Pickens. Only one
precinct in Bradford County
voted in this race, and Van
Zant carried it with 177 votes
to Chris France's 55 votes
and Pat Freeman's 33 votes.
Districtwide, Van Zant received
42 percent of the vote, or 3,851
votes to France's 3,274 votes
and Freeman's 2,094 votes.
Turnout by Bradford
County Democrats trumped

unprecedented, but Hatcher
said he admires the way the
district has pulled together
to address them, from doing
more to conserve to doing
more with less staff. In just
the last few months, three
more positions were cut at
the district office. So far,
the district has been able to
cut positions without cutting
personnel, however, by not
making new hires for some
positions when someone
retires or leJjecs the district.
or b\ shuffling personnel
from one position to another.
"That's %what we're trying
so hard to do," Prevatl said.
In some wvay s, however.
the district's hands are tied,
because ,lass-size standards
make it difficult to do without
instructional personnel, so
those position's are being
filled as needed
The possibility of even
deeper cut, has administrators
%worried how much longer the
shuffling and attrition can
continue. Prevjtt admitted.
"'\e just hope %%hen
people go to the polls, people
will consider the fact that
education in this count\ is
one of the major employers.
and it pro. ides folks in the
community %.,ith decent jobs
with good benefits." Prc\att
said. "It's like Mr Hatcher
said. .,e all need relief, but

Cleaning up
after a storm
After a storm or hurricane
has passed, failure to remove
contaminated materials
can cause health risks. If
there is flooding along with
a hurricane, water must be
removed as quickly as possible
since it may contain material
from overflowing sewage
systems. If there has been a
backflow of sewage into the
house, the following measures
should be taken to ensure
proper cleanup:
-Walls, hard-surfaced
floors and many other
household surfaces must be
cleaned with soap and water
and disinfected with a solution
of 1 cup of bleach to five
gallons of water.
-Thoroughly disinfect
surfaces that come in contact
with food and children's play
areas.
-Wash all linens and clothing
in hot water or have them dry-
cleaned.
-Items that cannot be


I''-


washed or dry-cleaned, such
as mattresses and upholstered
furniture, must be air dried in
the sun and sprayed thoroughly
with a disinfectant.
-Steam-clean all carpeting.
-Fiberboard, fibrous
insulation and disposable
filters that have contacted
floodwater or sewage should
be replaced in your heating
and air conditioning system.
Be careful about mixing
household cleaners and
disinfectants, as combining
certain types of products 'can
produce toxic fumes and result
in injury or death.
It can .be difficult to throw
away items in a home,
particularly those with
sentimental value. However,
keeping certain items soaked
by sewage or floodwaters
may be unhealthy. In general,
materials that cannot be
thoroughly cleaned and dried
within 24-48 hours should be
discarded.

Three increasingly
successful years and the
organizers of the Starke Bike
Fest it may be time for of venue,
asking the city commission to
support them as they explore
the idea of moving the high
octane festival from the
fairgrounds to downtown.
The move-isn't certain, but
commissioners said they were
willing to listen to more in the
coming months as organizers
determine how a downtown
bike fest would work.
According to Main Street
Starke Program Manager Kim
Skidmore and Board Members
Steve Futch and Rusty Greek,
the chamber of commerce
may no longer be involved
in running the bike fest. The
chamber oversaw the event
for the past two years, taking
over for the festival founders.
But Main Street wants to keep
the festival going and tie it
to its mission to revitalize
downtown Starke. The festival
made a profit in the third year,
and future profits could benefit
downtown.
Another pro is that the
festival would be in close
proximity to shops and
restaurants that could benefit
from the thousands of bike test
tourists.
The festival w'vould be
centered on the old power
plant property. Primary festival
activities, including on-stage
entertainment would take


place there.
One thing that
wouldn't take
.place on city
property is
alcohol sales,
Futch said.
"We don't
want you to
take the heat
for any issues
having to do
with that,"
Futch said.
An adjacent
pr i v ate e
property owner
has offered
his land, he
explained, but
commissioners
were still
concerned
about the
possibility of
festival-goers
wandering
around downtown with open
containers, city ordinance
violation.
"With this small downtown
area and the number of bikers
we had at the fairgrounds, I
have some concerns that it will
be difficult to control the open
containers," said Commissioner
Carolyn Spooner. "I'm all for
us having a bike fest, but .1I was
wondering why it ,would be
moved from the fairgrounds,
which has a much larger space
to spread out, and it's much
easier to contain it."
Spooner was also concerned
about some of the shows and
events that were not appropriate


venue that is
more easily
controlled.
Main Street
has a number
of questions to
answer, from
where to park
festival-goers
and control
traffic to how
and where to
charge people
who do attend,
since other
dfo w nG t o w n
events do
not charge
for entrance.
Overtime,
organizers will
return to the
commission
with site plans
and other
ideas for hqw
to work with
neighboring residents and
churches.
"We don't really think they'll
support us, but we just want to
make sure they don't protest
against us," Futch said.
This is just the beginning
of a process and by no means
a definite plan to move the
festival. But Greek, who has
played a prominent role in
planning past festivals, will
continue providing economic
benefits and exposing new
people to what Starke has
to offer. He said Leesburg's
festival, which began with 500
attendees, has helped transform
its downtown. The festival

Furch ssa-id- lcohiales and
consumption, as well as those
events, would take place on
private property, and fencing
would be used to contain the
area. As for kids, Futch said
the festival is not a "G-rated
event," and parents have to use
common sense and only bring
kids they feel are old enough
to attend.
"There were a lot of children
at the fairgrounds," Futch said.
"Some of them rode in with
their parents on bikes."
Things were too spread out
at the fairgrounds, and Futch
said they want to try a smaller


Starke buys satellite tech to stop lights


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

Starke Fire Rescue will soon
be using satellite technology
to preempt traffic signals as
it enters the highway and
makes its way through those
intersections.
At the urgingeof Fire Chiefi
Tom Rowe and Sheldon,
Pafford of Temple Inc., the
city commission agreed to
purchase the system at a cost
of .around $20,000, which


includes installation and labor
costs.
Systems were considered
that would allow the fire
department to turn on a pair
of cautionary lights north and
south of Jackson Street, where
fire trucks responding to an
emergency call typically enter
U.S. 301. The intersection is
not signalized and with two
lanes of traffic moving in
each direction, entering the
highway -can be dangerous and
take longer than necessary.


The cautionary lights serve to
notify drivers that emergency
vehicles are approaching.
Pafford, who sells various
types of transportation
technology, said he didn't think
the city would be satisfied with
a system utilizing cautionary
lights, however. Given the
amoMtt of stgnage and other
isual clutter-on 301., Pafford
said the lights might not be as
noticeable or effective.,
Instead he recommended a
system using global positioning
satellite, or GPS, technology.
Devices installed in fire trucks
and on the signals themselves
would communicate via
satellite to preempt traffic
signals when the trucks are
approaching an intersection.
Many places where the
technology is in use place it at
a number of interceptions so
emergency response vehicles
enjoy uninterrupted routes to
call locations. In Starke just
two intersections have. been

Street and 301 and the busy'
intersection at 301. and S.R.
100. These are the signalized
intersections north and south
of Jackson Street, from where
fire trucks preparing to enter
the highway can preempt the
signals, forcing red lights to
stop traffic traveling north
'- and south on 301. This should
allow for safer and speedier
passage for the department.
Similar systems that use
infrared technology are in use
in Gainesville and Lake-City,
--Pafford said.
Changes made not too long
ago by the Florida Department
of Transportation, working
with the University of South
Florida, to synchronize the
signals and improve traffic
flow through town would
admittedly be impacted.





!



e w/






a,,d ,/a,-/,/y


Pafford said it would take
several cycles following
preemption before the signals
are properly synchronized
again.
Once the city invests in
the technology. Pafford said,
every new intersection built or
repaired by DOT will have the
technology installed as part
of the project, expanding, the :;;
system at the state's expense.
The city plans to tap
-reimbursements the fire
department receives from
insurance companies from,
responding to traffic accidents.
As a sole source provider of the
system, it was determined no
additional bids were necessary.
As the purchase was not on the :
agenda, the commission had to
declare the $20,000 purchase
an emergency.

"Do we want it at that size? -:
Probably not. But I want to
be able to put ten thousand.
fifteen thousand people in
front of these businesses,"
Greek said. "Why hide people
at a fairgrounds when we
have a beautiful downtown to
show them? Why make them
stand in a fenced-in area like
cattle when we've got an open
downtown?"
He -said the bikers attracted
to such events are more
affluent than people may
think. According to Greek,
a Keystone real estate agent
actually sold property at the
last bike fest to people who
had come to ride though the
area.
"We have one of the most
beautiful riding areas in the :1
country, and all we've got
to do is show it off," Greek ;
said. People drawn to such -
festivals discover reasons to ;
stop and shop or eat the next :
time they're riding through,:'
he added.
Overall commissioners
responded positively to the
proposal, although Spooner
said she would need further
details before endorsing the
move. Given the consensus to
move forward, Mayor Travis
Woods said the commission
would be willing to hear more
once Main Street has more of
those details worked out.

Tips to help you r kids do better in school
Kids today li tac to, service. Be sure children know
deal with a heavy load that what is important is that


of schoolwork and
activities, ail demanding t
time and attention. "
Teachers often
introduce basic study.
habits to their students,
but it is important 00
that parents reinforce
these skills and create
a favorable study ,
environment at home.
"Parents need to help I
their children develop
homework and study
strategies that, will
provide them with the
foundation necessary to
successfully navigate
the "school year,"
advises Joan Rooney,
Vice President of Tutor
Managenient at Tutor.;
com, the world's largest online
tutoring service.
The key is, to help
children -get organized'.
create study schedule's and,
most importantly, recognize
their weak sppts and how to
overcome these hurdles.
Here are some tips frOm
Rooney and the experts at
Tutor.com on how to help
your child achieve success
this school year and develop
good study habits that will
last throughout their academic
career:
Create a schedule.Breaking
studying or homework down
into manageable chunks can
help alleviate stress. Students
should start studying early for
tests and work at least a week
backwards from an exam date.
They can even set reminders on
their cell phones or computers
to help stick to the plan.
Figure out weak spots
and prioritize. Most students


do well in some si objectss and
struggle with other s. It's best
to schedule the large ;est chunks
of time for subjects with which.
they are struggling.
Know where to go for
help. Many parent- i and kids
are finding help fr pm online
tutoring services,; such as
Tutor.com, to heltl: students
keep up' with their peers and
fill in weak spots v ,-here they
need work. Look fo: i a service
that offers 24/7 ai cesss and
the ability to instant' .y connect
with a tutor to get I homework
or study assistance at the actual
moment it's needed.
Work with a stu( :ly partner
or group. Sometir nes peer
support can help students
motivate. Encourage ; them to
make plans with f friends to
review class material .'., compare
notes and work throw' u igh tough
stuff together.
Get to know the i:' st. Many
teachers provide stu 1 y guides,
review sheets and c lass time


for review. Make sure your son
or daughter knows as much as
possible about what topics will
be on a test and the format of
the test.
Create study aids and test
strategies. Making flash cards,
outlining subject notes or
coming up with a mnemonic
device are a few study tactics
that may boost student's recall
at test time.
Eat well and get rest.
All-nighters are a bad idea!
Even though students need to
work extra hard to prepare
for tests and projects. it's also
important for them to take
a breather. Encourage them
to grab a snack, do leisure
reading or watch their favorite
TV show for a short break.
Set the right tone. Create
as stress-free an environment
as you can. Let your child
know you're available to help
or will help them'locate help
from fellow students or from
an online homework help


they do their best and you are
there to support them.
"Creating the right study
strategy can help a child
use time wisely, ease stress
and achieve the best grades
possible," said Rooney.

Secondhand smoke, also
known as at environmental'
tobacco smoke., is the
smoke given off by the end
of a cigarette, pipe or cigar.
This smoke is inhaled by'
nonsmokers and can linger
in the air hours after the a
cigarette is put out.
Secondhand smoke has been
classified as a known cause of
cancer to humans. It can cause
disease and premature death in
children. It contains hundreds
of chemicals known to be
toxic,, such as formaldehyde,
used to preserve the. dead,
and arsenic, often used as rat
poison. Secondhand smoke,
also contains lead, which cani
lead t6 irreversible neurological
damage, cadmium, whihi is
used in batteries, and toluene,
a chemical found in paint
thinners. It also contains


butane, used in light r fluid,
hydrogen cyanide,' used
in chemical weapons s, and
-carbon monoxide, found, d in car
exhaust.
In 1985, the Legi slature
recognized the effe:( ts of
secondhand smoke a.n i took


steps to create a. law that
minimized public exposure.
The Florida Clean Indoor Air
Act was created to protect
people from the dangers of
secondhand smoke. It states
that all business (with a few
exceptions) must develop and
maintain a smoking policy
restricting cigarettes to certain
areas.
Since then. many resources
to assist individuals with
quitting. smoking have been
developed. The Florida
Quitline is a resource available
to all individuals 11 and
older to assist with quitting
smoking. They can provide
online counseling and free
nicotine replacement therapy

Park proposals receive

enthusiastic public response


The skate park and splash
playground proposed for
the city of Lake Butler have
received tremendously positive
response through a series of
recent public presentations.
On Aug. 12, the city of Lake
Butler commissioners held a
special public meeting to allow
Megan Carter of the projects'
engineering firm, Bailey,
Bishop and Lane to make a
presentation as well as receive
input from the community.
The meeting generated a large
turnout with approximately
60 people in attendance,
overflowing from the council
chambers into the lobby.
Carter gave a brief slideshow
presentation on the plans for the
Lake Butler parks, followed by
a question and answer session
and public comments.
The public response was
overwhelmingly in favor
of putting the parks in Lake
Butler. Interested citizens
speaking out in favor of the
park included local parents and
grandparents, as well as police
officers, library staff, members
of the Lake Butler Rotary Club
and local ministers.
Speaking in favor of the skate


park proposal, Art Peterson of
First Christian Church staled,
"As a father of two sons who
loved to skateboard, I can
say that the skate park is a
wonderful idea."
Mary Brown of the Union
County Public Library added
her opinion that the skate park
was a safer alternative to the
kids riding in the streets, and
would help to cut down on
damage to public facilities.
Resident Bill McGill said he
supported the proposals as long
as both parks are part of the
package.
"The skate park will appeal
to older boys and the splash
playground will appeal to both
boys and girls."
Other comments favoring the
splash park noted the special
attraction the splash fountains
will have to younger children
and toddlers.
Near the end of the public
comments, one resident asked
for a show of hands as to.who
supported the proposal and who
opposed it. All hands were in
favor.
Carter also presented the plan
before the Lake Butler Rotary
Club at its weekly meeting,
receiving a positive response.
Rotarians discussed the
growing popularity of splash


Cindy Kent and Joe Pietrangelo of the Union County
Health Department were on hand providing free
helmets to skateboarders.

playgrounds such as those in
St. Augustine Beach and at the
Jacksonville Zoo.
The proposal has drawn
support in letters from other
local organizations. Lake
Butler Rotary Club President
Russ Wade formally expressed
the club's support for the parks
in a letter to city commissioners.
Pastor Patrick Maxwell of
Victory Christian Center
offered a letter of support after
attending the public meeting
and visiting the skate park
demonstration, and Local Boy
Scout Troop. and Cub Scout
Pack 55,2 also offered a letter
supporting the projects.
Last Saturday, representatives
from American Ramp Company
set up a mobile skate park in
downtown Lake Butler for
interested youth to try out
its modular ramp equipment.
Representatives from the city
and the Rotary Glub helped
supervise the event, wich--
had a good turnout despite the
unpredictable lingering weather
from Tropical Storm Fay.
The next step in the process
will be for the city to submit
an application to the state
for a grant. If approved, the
grant should cover the entire
construction expense for both
parks.

entitlement to a nuhliclv-financed nrivate nroraram

i(b-) Every four-year old child in Florida shall be provided by the State a high quality pre-kindergarten learning opportunity in the form of an early childhood development and education program which shall be voluntary, high quality, free, and

settings in the development of language and cognitive capabilities and emotional, social, regulatory and moral capacities through education in basic skills and such other skills as the Legislature may determine to be appropriate.

in the household trash, but
consumers should take certain
precautions before tossing
them out, according to the
Food and Drug Administration.
A few drugs should be flushed
down the toilet. And a growing
number of community-
based "take-back" programs
offer another safe disposal
alternative.
Guidelines for
drug disposal
FDA worked with the White
House Office of National Drug
Control Policy to develop the
first consumer guidance for
proper disposal of prescription
drugs. Issued in February
2007,. the federal guidelines
are summarized here:
Follow any specific disposal
instructions on the drug label
or patient information that
accompanies the medication.
Do not flush prescription
drugs down the toilet unless
this information specifically
instructs you to do so.
If no instructions are
given, throw the drugs in the
household trash, but first:
Take them out of
their original containers and
mix them with an undesirable
substance, such 'as used
coffee grounds or kitty litter,


$50
for infor
nrp0


The medication will be less
appealing to children and pets,
and unrecognizable to people
who may intentionally go
through your trash.
Put them in a
sealable bag, empty can or
other container to prevent the
medication from leaking or
breaking out of a garbage bag.
-.- --- Take --.. -addv~iffhage
of community drug take-
back programs that allow
the public to bring unused
drugs to a central location
for proper disposal. Call your
city or county government's
household trash and recycling
service to see if a take-back
program is available in your
community.
FDA's Director of Pharmacy
Affairs, Ilisa Bernstein, offers
some additional tips:
Before throwing out
a medicine container, scratch
out all identifying information
on the prescription label to
make it unreadable. This will
help protect your identity and
the privacy of your personal
health information;
Do not give
medications to friends. Doctors
prescribe drugs based on a
person's specific symptoms
and medical history. A drug
that works for you could be
dangerous for someone else.
When in doubt about
proper disposal, talk to your
pharmacist.
Bernstein says the same
disposal methods for
prescription drugs could apply
to over-the-counter drugs as
well.
Why the
precautions?
Disposal instructions on the
label are part of FDA's "risk
mitigation" strategy, says Capt.
Jim Hunter, R.Ph., M.P.H.,
Senior Program Manager on.
FDA's Controlled Substance
Staff. When a drug contains
instructions to flush it down
the toilet, he says, it's because
FDA, working with the
manufacturer, has determined
this method to be the most
appropriate route of disposal
that presents the least risk to
safety.
About a dozen drugs, such
as powerful, narcotic pain
relievers and other controlled
substances, carry instructions
for flushing, to reduce the
danger of unintentional use or
overdose and illegal abuse.
For example, the fentanyl
patch, an adhesive patch that
delivers a potent pain medicine
through the skin, comes with
instructions to flush used or
leftover patches. Too much
fentanyl can cause severe
breathing problems and lead to
death in babies, children, pets,
and even adults, especially
those who have not been
prescribed the drug. "Even
after a patch is used, a lot of
the drug remains in the patch,"
says Hunter, "so you wouldn't
want to throw something in the
trash that contains a powerful
and potentially dangerous
narcotic that could. harm
others."
Environmental
concerns
Despite the safety reasons
for flushing drugs.,some people
are questioning the practice
because of concerns about
trace levels of drug residues
found in surface water, such
as rivers and lakes, and in
some community drinking
water supplies. However, the
main way drug residues enter
water systems is by .people
taking medications and then
naturally passing them through
their bodies, says Raanan
Bloom, an Environmental
Assessment Expert in FDA's
Center for Drug Evaluation
and Research. "Most drugs are
not completely absorbed or
metabolized by the body, and
enter the environment after
passing through waste water
treatment plants."


A company that wants
FDA to approve its drug must
submit an application package
to the agency. FDA requires,
as part of the application
package, an assessment of how
the drug's use would affect
the environment. Some drug
applications are excluded from
- the--aSsessment requirement,
says Bloom, based on previous
agency actions.
"For those drugs for which
environmental assessments
have been required, there
has been no indication of
environmental effects due
to flushing," says Bloom. In
addition, according to the
Environmental Protection
Agency, scientists to date have
found no evidence of adverse
human health effects from
pharmaceutical residues in the
environment.
Nonetheless, FDA does not
want to add drug residues into
water systems unnecessarily,
says Hunter. The agency is
in the process of reviewing
all drug labels with disposal
directions to assure that the
recommended methods for
disposal are still appropriate.
Another environmental
concern lies with inhalers
used by people who have
asthma or other breathing
problems, such as chronic
obstructive pulmonary
disease. Traditionally, many
inhalers have contained
chlorofluorocarbons, a
propellant that damages the
protective ozone layer. The
CFC inhalers are being phased
out and replaced with more
environmentally friendly
inhalers.
Depending on the type of
product and where you live,
inhalers and aerosol products
may be thrown into household
trash or recyclables, or may
be considered hazardous
waste and require special
handling. Read the handling
instructions on the label, as
some inhalers should not be
punctured or thrown into a fire
or incinerator. To ensure safe
disposal, contact your local
trash and recycling facility. _

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




Hunter has enjoyed long, happy life in Graham area


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
Irene Hunter has a green
thumb, and you could say that
much like the plants she tends
to, her roots are also embedded
in the soil in Graham.
If Hunter has her way,
Graham will remain her home.
It-and the surrounding area-
is all she has known for most
of her life, which covers a span
of almost 100 years. Hunter
celebrated her 98'1h birthday on
Aug.7.
"I'm getting to be old,"
Hunter said. "I've been here a
long time."
Sure, there was a brief time
in her life when she and her
first husband, L.E. Ratliff,


moved south (Ratliff took on a
job as the foreman on an
orange grove near Kissimmee),
but Hunter said there was just
no place to compare to the
home she had known all her
life up to that point.
And there is still no place
that compares to what she
considers home. That's why
Hunter, who served as
Graham's postmaster for a 25-
year span, has no desire to
leave.
"I don't know," she said.
"You've just got to live here
and let it grow on you, I guess.
Besides, I've been here so
long-where would I go?"
Hunter, whose name comes
from her second husband,


Ernest Hunter, actually grew
up in the small community of
Louise, located in Alachua
County on the other side of the
Santa Fe River. There, she-
and one brother and one
sister-was raised on the farm
of her parents: Jessie and
Minnie Cain. Jessie Cain was a
railroad section foreman, while
Minnie Cain manned a country
store and served as the
postmaster in Louise.
While her mother stayed
busy, Hunter and her sister
took care of things around the
farm.
"We pretty well knew how
to carry on the chores without
anyone around," Hunter said.
Hunter remembers shucking

corn, working in the fields and
tending to such animals as
chickens, hogs, horses and
cows.
It was a happy childhood.
Hunter and her sister (their
brother was too young to share
in the chores) did not mind the


work.
"We looked forward to
doing it," Hunter said. "I guess
we liked doing it. We didn't
ever complain."
It wasn't all work. Hunter
did go to school at a little, one-
room building in Louise. One


teacher taught everyone, and
'once you got through eighth
grade, you were done. In fact,
Hunter said students
completing eighth grade were
then. eligible to become

Bradford Tornadoes have a youthful


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
When Bradford head
football coach Steve Hoard
took his team to a Fellowship
of Christian Athletes event in
Gainesville on Aug. 14, he was
asked by a fellow coach if that
was his junior varsity team.
That perfectly sums up this
season for the varsity
Tornadoes. They are young,
with one full-time starter
returning on offense in
quarterback Rodney Mosley
and three on defense, though
only two of those players-
cornerback Tramaine "B.B."
Harris and lineman Terrence
Slocum-are playing the
positions they played last year.
Adrian Mosley is moving from
corner to safety.
Bradford does have another
two full-time starters returning
in Casey Hines and John
Tyson, but they will play on
the defensive line this year-
something that will be new for
the former offensive linemen.
Special teams gets a boost
with Tyler Cubbedge returning
to handle the kicking, but all in
all, this year's team is
inexperienced. Hoard said the
unit.will improve as the season
goes along, but there could be
some rocky moments along the
way.
"They're going to have to
experience the bumps and
bruises," said Hoard, who is
.entering his second year as
head coach. "They're going to
have some success. They're
going to have 'some failures.
As young as we are, we'll
probably lose a game we
shouldn't lose. We'll probably
win one we shouldn't win.
Usually, when you have very
young players, the consistency
is the key. We've got to be
consistent."
Defensively, the Tornadoes,
who went 6-4 last year, have a
three-year starter to rely on in
Slocum. The senior did have
some health issues this
summer-doctors were
concerned he may have an
enlarged heart-but he has
been cleared to resume
practicing with the team.
Hoard said Slocum is not in
game condition, but once he
gets back into the flow of
things, he will help the team
with his combination of
quickness, strength and
experience.
"He's been through the wars
before," Hoard said. "He's
lined up against Bolles. He's
lined up against some of the
other schools we play. He
knows what it's all about, but
he's got to fight through some
adversity to get it done."
Two other experienced


seniors join Slocum on the
line, but they are relative
newcomers to the defensive
side of the ball. Hines and
Tyson, though, have shown
signs they can make the
transition from the offensive
line to the defensive line. In a
camp the Tornadoes
participated over the summer,
the two dominated linemen
from larger schools, Hoard
said.
They're both strong players
who possess leadership skills,
Hoard said, but they will have
to continue to adjust to their
new positions.
"They have the potential, but
they don't have the reps at
defensive line yet because
they've only played there
during the spring," Hoard said.
Some of the other players in
the mix for positions on the
line are senior Gerald
Goodman and juniors Jamell
Dell, Jarrod Jackson and Isaiah
Jenkins, though Dell may wind
up being a, starter on the
offensive line.
The defensive backfield has
experience in Harris and
Adrian Mosley, who both
started last year as freshmen.
Hoard said it is a blessing to'
have both players this year.
Harris almost moved to
Gainesville, while Mosley was
stabbed with a knife while
trying to break up a fight. .
Mosley was going to move
to linebacker this season, but
he lost a lot of weight after the
stabbing. It was a scary
situation, to be sure, but Hoard
said Mosley is recovering well.
"Hie's feeling better and
looking a little better," Hoard
said.

John Tyson (foreground), shown fighting his way
through the offensive line, will play primarily on the
defensive line this year.


In. Harris, the Tornadoes
have a "big-time" athlete,
Hoard said. The sophomore
returned a kickoff 95 yards
against Bolles last season and
was a starter in two varsity
sports last season (basketball
was the other).
"Those don't come along too
often," Hoard said.
A first-year football player
in senior Charles Jones looks
to hold down the other corner
slot opposite Harris. Hoard
said Jones showed a lot of
promise during pass-skills
competition over the summer.
"They tried to' test him a
little this summer," Hoard said.
"After he picked off about six
or seven passes, they quit
trying to test him."
Bradford's linebackers will
all be new this season, but
Hoard is excited about the

potential of two-junior
Joseph Lombel and senior
Alex Orosco. Other players in
the mix include Goodman,
Jenkins, sophomore Donelle
Williams and senior Trey
Winkler.
On the other side of the ball,
Rodney Mosley returns at
quarterback. As a first-time
starter last year, Mosley did a
good job of taking on the role
of a leader though he was just
a sophomore, Hoard said.
Hoard said Mosley also
improved as a passer as the
season went along. That has
continued.


"He threw the ball really
well during the course of the
summer," Hoard said.
Mosley will most likely
share the position this year
with senior Trey Winkler, who
is playing football for the first
time. Winkler showed a lot of
potential during the spring
classic, running and throwing
the ball.
Hoard said Winkler and
Mosley will have to play
multiple positions on offense
because of their athletic
ability. Either player can line

Players to contribute on both sides for Indians


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
Keystone Heights has been
able to avoid major injuries in
recent seasons-a trend head
football coach Chuck
Dickinson would like to see
continue.
As a small school, Keystone
cannot afford injuries. This
year, the need to stay healthy
is probably as great as it has
ever been during Dickinson's
tenure. Keystone has 37
players (three will be inactive
because of injuries), but
Dickinson said he anticipates
four or five players will play
both offense and defense. Last
year, the Indians had only a
couple of players who were
forced to do so.
"If you lose a kid to injury
or something, you've got to
make adjustments," Dickinson
said. "It can really hurt you."
Offensively, the Indians are
relying on players such as
seniors Thomas Ricketts and
Marcel Robinson to step in and'
help fill the void left by 1,000-
yard tailbacks Matt Story and
Greg Taylor. However,
Ricketts and Robinson were
both starters on defense last
year. Robinson, who plays
linebacker, will mainly play
offense this year, but there will
be situations where he will
have to line up on defense.
"A lot of our backs are
starting defensive players,"


Dickinson said. "We're going
to have to do a great job of
rotating kids by series so
they're not in the game all the
time, so they're at least getting
a series off every three series."
Ricketts is no stranger to the
offensive backfield. He was
the starting fullback last year.
This year, he lines up at one of
the tailback positions.
"In the spring, we weren't
sure how he would react
there," Dickinson said. "In the
spring game, I thought he
really saw things better from
that position than he did from
the fullback position."
Ricketts is one of just two
full-time starters returning on
offense. The other is Shane
Jennings, who played tight end
last year. This year, though,
Dickinson is hoping Jennings
can help out at the guard
position, while also counting
on him to step into a starting
defensive tackle position. Joel
Brown figures to step into the
tight end position.
The Indians have to replace
every starting offensive
lineman from last season
because of graduation.
"We had some who played
some last year," Dickinson
said, "but they weren't really
starters. We're hoping they
keep progressing. We were
pleased with them in the spring
game."
One lineman who got


playing experience last year
was Josh Brown, who 1'vill be a
senior.
"Josh did an adequate job
last year," Dickinson said.
"He's gotten stronger. Mle're
looking for some good t iings
from him."
Dickinson said the sta rting
five will probably consi! t of
Brown, senior Aaron Young
and juniors Seth Green, S hane
Morgan and Jonathan Sta nley.
Junior Kyle Williams and
sophomore Cody Yarrbr ugh,
along with Jennings, would d
also contribute.
Blocking the way for
tailbacks Ricketts and
Robinson will be s| enior
Garrett Strickland. Strici dand
is experienced though, h, wing
played quite a bit at the
position last year. Other
players who will be in ithe
fullback/tailback rotation i are
seniors Brett Anderson, Kyle
Cravey and Jacob Van
Wagner, and junior Zak D avis.
Keystone's sti arting
quarterback from last year,
Clayton Mosley, has decided
not to play this year.
Therefore, it looks as if tE ie job
will fall to sophomore Bri antley
Lott. Lott figured to see plenty
of playing time at the pc )sition
anyway as Dickinson pl anned
to line Mosley up at di Tferent
positions, looking for w ays to
best help the team.
Dickinson said it doe s hurt
the team that Mosley and a
couple of other players chose
not to play this year, but all the
team can do is move on.;
"We've got to pla)' with
what we have," Dic:kinson
said. "Sure, we wish sor ne kids
would've come out and stayed,
but we're going to pl iy with
the ones who are here."
Ricketts will be the: team's
backup quarterback-a role he
filled last year. as well.
However, he does not figure to
get a lot of reps at qua) rterback
because of the other c positions
he plays and the fact t hat Lott
needs as many reps a he can
get, Dickinson said. Tl erefore,
the plan is to also ha -e junior
varsity quarterback RJ.
Buxton work with the varsity
squad during practices at least
once a week.


Dickinson would prefer to
leave Buxton on the junior
varsity team so that he can get
playing time and game
experience. However, if the
varsity team needs Buxton, it
will not be getting a player
who's totally green. Buxton
practiced with the varsity team
throughout the spring since
Lott and Mosley were still
playing baseball. Buxton also
played some series for the
varsity team in its spring game.
"That's a good thing for
him," Dickinson said. "He's
really ahead of the game."
Keystone quarterbacks will
probably throw the ball more
this season, Dickinson said.
Last year, the Indians.
attempted approximately five
passes a game as the tandem of
Story and Taylor, behind a

Cameron Moore, who is

"Those kinds of young kids
having to start on your varsity
team-that's hot the best thing,
but that's just the way\it is
right now," Hoard said.
"That's what we have. They're
going to have to grow and
mature as the year goes along."
The linemen have potential
and could be really good by
the time they're seniors, Hoard
said. The wide receivers also
show potential. Cubbedge, a
junior who has been dealing
with some health issues, will
be a solid contributor when he
returns, Hoard said. Cubbedge
played last year and performed
really well.
"He was a great blocker out
there," Hoard said.

responsible for more than
seven yards per rushing
attempt.
"This year, we're going to
have to be more balanced,"
Dickinson said. "We'll be
throwing the ball probably 12
to 15 times a game, I would
imagine."'
One of the team's wide
receivers will be senior Travis,
Westberry, who did start some
in that position last year.
Senior Bryce Wilson and
sophomore ,Ryan Latner are
also getting looks at the
position.
Defensively, the Indians
return starters in Anderson,
Cravey, Robinson, Van
Wagner and seniors Kevin
Gillain and Dillon Van
Wagner. Anderson and Cravey
will play on the defensive line
and will be joined by Jennings
and Strickland, who will most
likely start at defensive end.
Robinson will continue to
play linebacker. He will be
joined by Dillon Van Wagner,
who played free safety last
season. Dickinson said Van
Wagner, who has added
muscle in the offseason,
'should be able to make a
successful transition to
linebacker.
"The only thing that's hurt
him is he was hurt and
couldn't practice in the
spring," Dickinson said. "He's
behind the learning curve right
now."
Davis could also contribute
at linebacker as well as in the
secondary.
The secondary is
experienced with players such
as Jacob Van Wagner, Gillain
and senior Lee Lambert. Junior
Chase Chambers will also
contribute.
Dickinson said the only
problem with the secondary, as
with other positions on the
team, is numbers.
"Again, we don't have a lot
of depth there," Dickinson
said. "That's an issue."
,Provided the Indians stay
healthy, they have a group of
22 seniors to lead them.
"It's probably the biggest
class of seniors I've had since
I've, been here," Dickinson
said.
As mentioned earlier,
several underclassmen will
play important roles, such as
sophomores Latner, Lottw and
Yarbrough. Another
sophomore who will be a
major contributor is
placekikker Tim Frysinger.
Frysinger was 2-for-2 on PATs
in the Indians' Blue and White
scrimmage and connected on a
field goal in a 14-9 loss to
Williston in a spring classic.

work, the more luck I
seem to have."

Senior Scott Crews and
junior Seth Upthegrove have
also shown a knack for
catching the ball, Hoard said.
The only problem is the
Tornadoes don't' have a lot of
speed at the position. That is
why Rodney Mosley and the
other backs will most likely
get their opportunities on the
outside as well.
"Those young running backs
we can put out there in some
of those positions to stretch
some people," Hoard said.
The team that was mistaken
for .a junior varsity squad by
another coach could have its
struggles this year, but Hoard
said the team will grow and
improve.
"We're going to get better as
the year goes by," Hoard said.
"We're not horrible. We're
just very young."

Tigers enter season with talent at skill positions


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
This year's Union County
Tigers can't afford many
bumps and bruises on the
offensive and defensive lines,
but it appears as if the team
will have plenty of speedy,
skill-position players.
Head coach Andrew Zow
said the Tigers have a lot of
players who can line up in the
defensive secondary, the
offensive backfield and at the
wide receiver positions. In
fact, when it comes to the
offensive backfield, Zow said
the Tigers are overcrowded.
That's a good thing,
however. '
"You can never have enough
(speed)," Zow said. "You can't
teach that. That makes your
job,a whole lot easier."
Zow said all of the team's
offensive backs have the speed
to get into the defensive
secondary of their opponents.
That includes fullback Justin
Tyson, who may be a bit
smaller than fullbacks of late
at Union County, but who is a
lot faster.
"All our backs can run this
year and can take us to the
next level," Zow said.
Lining up behind Tyson will
be an experienced player in
Deven Perry, who had to battle
a shoulder injury last year.
Zow said Perry, if he can stay,
healthy, is one of those players
who can make an impact on
desire alone!.He goes all out in
trying to make something
positive happen.
"When he's on'the field and
in the game, he definitely
wants to .be,a part of it," Zow
said. ;
Lining up.,,-beside 'Perry will
be Najeeb iSmith. Smith, a
district cha'rhpion inAhe 200m,
id not play last year because
of academic issues.. Zow is
looking for big things from
Smith.
"Ever since he came back,
he's been anxious to get back
on the field and show me what
he can do," Zow said. "He's
one of those guys who can
really stretch the field."
Smith is one of those players
you try to get the ball to any
way you can, Zow said. Smith
could line up some outside, but
thle Tigers do ha~e a similar
home-run ,li. ier at- wide

Zow said. Holmes was utilized
in deep patterns and on
reverses last year as a
freshman. Now, the coaching
staff is looking to getting him
more involved in the offense,
working with him on
intermediate pass routes.
Holmes has been working hard
to improve. '
",What I was impressed with
was when football was over
last year, he kept working at
route running and catching the
ball," Zow said.
Some other players expected
to contribute at receiver are


Jordan Williams, Adam Cason
and Shamari Holland.
Zow describes Williams as
that dependable player every
offense needs. He's not as fast
as the other receivers, but he
can catch the ball, Zow said.
Cason is "probably the best
route runner we've got," Zow
said, while adding that Holland
has .worked extremely hard to
earn more playing time.
"I can see him getting
better," Zow said of Holland.
"I've been very impressed with
him."
The Tigers have plenty of


skill-position players and
apparently have two reliable
quarterbacks they can lean on.
Chris Alexander, who started
last year, returns and will share
time with Alvin Jernigan. Zow
admitted he was not a fan of a
two-quarterback system when
he was a player, but said the
different styles of Alexander
and Jernigan are a plus in the
Tigers' offense. Zow said
Alexander is a pure pocket
passer, while Jernigan can
make some things happen with
his feet.
"I look forward to both these

Williams played last year,
though at one of the guard
positions. Center J.R. Rooney
was mainly a backup last year
at left tackle. Right tackle
Albert Brand is a freshman,
though Zow said Brand does
not play like a freshman.
The two guards played
linebacker last year: Dustin
Floyd and Dalton Cochran.
Zow said they have speed and
another attribute that should
make them successful linemen.
"They bring that toughness
you need at guard in a Wing-T
offense," Zow said.
Floyd and Cochran will
continue to play linebacker as
well.
"It'll be a grind for them,
and they'll be'dead tired after
every game," Zow said, "but I
think they're up for the
challenge."
Brodie Ellis, who has gotten
bigger and stronger, according
to Zow, returns at tight end.
Lonnie Gosha will also
contribute at the position.


On the defensive side of the
ball, the secondary is led by an
experienced S.J. Simmons, the
only senior of the group.
Coaches have worked with
Simmons on not focusing his
attention so much on the
opponent's backfield, and he
has worked hard to improve in
that area, Zow said.
"I'm looking forward to
seeing what he's able to do this
year," Zow said, adding, "He's
one of the veterans on that
side. He knows the game and
has been playing it long
enough to where it should
become second nature to him."
Players such as Tyson,
Kendall Wright, DJ. Paige and
Ruben Williams will also be in
the mix in the secondary.
As mentioned before,
Cochran and Floyd will also
play linebacker, joining
players such as Mason Dukes
and Caleb Dukes. Zow said
Mason Dukes did a good job
of stepping in last season when
his older brother, Aaron
Dukes, was injured and has
continued to do a good job as
he steps into a starting role.
Caleb Dukes is just a
freshman, but Zow said he has.

been performing well in
practice.
The defensive line, like its
offensive counterpart, does not
have much experience. Gosha
and Delmonte Givens do have
plenty of game experience, but
it came at the linebacker
position. Williams did not play
much on the defensive side of
the ball last year, while
Marquez Perry and Corey
Tucker have not had much
playing time at all.
"None of those guys have
played a whole lot of defensive
line," Zow said, "but they've
shown promise over the past
few weeks."
In fact, a lot of young
players show promise. Several
freshmen, like Brand, and
sophomores, such as Holmes
and Givens, to name a few,
will have an impact this year.
Zow said a small-county
school like Union County does
not have a constant stream of
all-around great talent year in
and year out, but the talent
does comes in waves and that
seems to be the case right now.
The coach looks at the
program and sees a
tremendous group of freshmen
and sophomores.
"I sort of wish there were

more linemen in this group,"
Zow said, "but I think some of
these younger guys are
stepping up."
Every player on the team,
though, is motivated to step
up. Zow said players are eager
to wash the bad taste out of
their mouths from last year
when the team werit 3-7. Zow,
for one, believes his team was
better than three wins last year.
Part of the problem was his
team had a tendency to play
down to its opponents' level,
Zow said. That prevented the
Tigers from winning some
close games down the stretch.
There are many people who
believe the Tigers have a
chance to be a good team this
year, and Zow wants his
players to believe that as well.
They must take care of.
business on the field, however.
"You've got to bring your
'A' game every week," Zow
said. "Don't just believe the
hype."

individual Is the highest it is possible for
him to achieve.

efforts on vehicles being
operated with defects such as
bad brakes, worn tires and
defective lighting equipment.
In addition, attention will be
directed toward drivers who
violate the driver's license
laws of Florida.

Page 12B TELEGRAPH, TIMES & MONITOR--B-SECTION Aug. 28, 2008


great-great grandchildren were
there, Hunter remembers that
much. She does not recall
having a cake with candles on
it, but Hunter said she would
not know what to ask for upon
blowing out candles anyway.
"I don't know what I
would've wished for, to tell
you the truth," she said. "I've
had so many blessings."


Correction
In last week's issue, the
caption for the photo of
Virginia Autry, Laurel Baker
and Brenda Thornton
should've identified Autry as
being on the far right and
Thornton on the far left.


Facts are stubborn
things; and whatever
may be our wishes, our
inclinations, or the
dictates of our
passions, they cannot
alter the state of facts
and evidence.
John Quincy Adams


Ambition. An
overmastering desire to
be vilified by enemies
while living and made
ridiculous by friends
when dead.
Ambrose Bierce,
American Author,
Editor, Journalist.


HUNTER
Continued from page 1B

teachers-a concept she finds
amusing now.
"What could you teach a
child just having finished
eighth grade?" she asked.
Hunter also looked forward
to fishing with her
grandmother, who also lived
on the farm. Her grandmother
had her favorite spots along
the Santa Fe River, which had
lots of water in it at that time,
Hunter said.
Those were enjoyable-and
quiet-times.
"We couldn't talk. She
wouldn't let us talk," Hunter
said of her grandmother. "We
had to be real quiet, and if we
happened to get a hook in our
hand, Grandma had a little, old
knife. She would cut that hook
out of our hand and go right on
back fishing just like nothing
happened."
When Hunter, who married
at the age of 21, moved away
from the place that had been
her home all her life, she was
not venturing out into a
complete unknown. Some of
her and her husband's friends
followed them south to work,
too.
Hunter eventually returned
to Louise and later moved to
Graham. She worked at Camp
Blanding for four years before
being hired as the postmaster
in Graham.
The postmaster's job was
not one Hunter was seeking.
She was not working at the
time, but the woman who was
serving as postmaster was
moving away. She asked
Hunter if she would like to
have the job, then sent in an
application on Hunter's behalf.
Later, on a Saturday
evening, an inspector with the
U.S. Postal Service showed up
at Hunter's house to interview
her for the position. Hunter
admitted she had forgotten all
about the job and did not care
if she got it or not.
"I never thought about
getting a job like that," she
said. "It didn't pay anything at
the time. Your pay was based
on your stamp sales. There
weren't that many people
living around here. You didn't
have that many stamp sales,
but it was a lot of money at the
time for me because I hadn't
been making any*money."
A paycheck, though, is not
what gave Hunter a sense of
joy. That came from having,
the opportunity to meet people
and assist them in any way she
could. That included reading
mail to people and writing
their responses to letters they
had received.
"We had a number of older
people here then who couldn't
read and write," Hunter said.
Hunter said she'd love to be
able to continue helping
people, but she said there is
not much she can do for
anybody now at her age. Still,
Hunter is able to do plenty.
She can still wake up every
morning and take care of
herself, which she considers a
blessing. She's able to tend to
her plants, which gives her the
opportunity to go outside and
work, something she enjoyed
from her days as a child on her
family farm.
"I know I'm not going to be
able to work with them too
many more years," Hunter said
of her plants, "but I want to do
the best I can. I love every one
of them."
If Hunter's former physician
is right in his thinking, Hunter
can at least count on two more
years of gardening. Her doctor
used to always tell her she was
going to live to be 100. In fact,
that doctor, who has been
retired for a while, got the
chance to tell Hunter his belief
again just a couple of years
ago.
Hunter received a call from
one of her grandchildren one
day, asking her-along with
his mother-to drop by the
style shop he owns in
Gainesville. There was
someone there he wanted
Hunter to meet.
It turned out to be the


doctor. Hunter was used to
seeing the doctor conduct
himself with nothing but a
businesslike manner, so this
recent meeting was a joy
because he showed some
genuine emotion.
"He came out of that shop
just laughing and so happy to
see us," Hunter said. "He said,
'I told you you were going to
live to be 100.' 1 never will
forget his smile."
Another unforgettable
moment happened earlier this
month when Hunter was
surprised with a birthday part
at Western Steer Family
Steakhouse. Hunter was
invited to dinner by some
friends, which was not
unusual. She never suspected
anything, though quite a few
people were involved in the
planning of the event.
"They all got this thing up
without me knowing it,"
Hunter said. "It looks like
some of them would have had
to told me about it. I don't
know how so many people
could've kept a secret."
Three grandchildren and five
