Starke discusses future of rec building

City may try to tap county ___.....________
for needed construction .
funds,
BY MARK J. CRAWFORD I
Telegraph Editor


Architect Paul Stressing has given the
Starke City Commission some potential
design solutions for a new recreation
facility that could reduce the estimated
cost of construction and'make the best
use of available space at the Edwards
Road ballpark.
Stressing said his background is
educational and athletic facilities, and
he-has-worked with the school district
on several projects over fthe"past nine-
years.
A penny-wise approach is being
taken toward the design of the facility
given the lack of available funds. The
new proposed design is pared down
from what was previously considered,
although it does -include many desired
elements. The design incorporates those
initial needs and anticipates future
expansion.
"Coming up with a frugal design is
going to afford you the opportunity to
go ahead and build a facility that-would
allow (you to be able to) expand it as
well,' Stressing said.
As the plans stand now, the facility
will contain a gymnasium, of course,
with a multi-use court for full- and half-
court basketball and volleyball. Scoring
tables are placed to once side with
retractable bleachers and equipment
storage on the opposite side of the
court. The off-center lobby opens up to
this side of the gymnasium to prevent
disruption of play. The lobby also
provides access to the reception and
concessions area. Behind reception in

Improvements shaplearning at lawtey school


BY MELISSA PYLE
Special to the Telegraph


School can be a dreaded task to man\
children every day of the week, but
the newly opened buildings at Lawtey
Community School are giving the
students something to look for ard to.
Over the past year there have been
reports and many conversations about
the progress or setbacks of the ne"
buildings, but this school year has
seen the grand opening of the much-
anticipated new classrooms.
Each classroom is equipped with
the latest technologies, including new
computers, a high-tech projector, and a
document camera that allows teachers
to scan the papers that need to be seen
by theclass-andLtben prQects them onio
a screen.
The computers are wireless, and the
children and teachers are able to access
the Internet for research in their rooms.
According to third-grade teacher
Sheila McClellan, who has been in
education for 30 years, the best part of
the new buildings is all the available
light. The classrooms are painted with
unique and vibrant colors. There is a
different shade painted on each wall
in the rooms, providing an easier focal
point for the students when they are
studying different subjects.
,'The colors where researched
based," said Principal David Tew; Tew,

who has been principal at Lawtey for
three years, is pleased with the all the
new innovations that are available
to the school. He was principal at the
Starke Elementary School when it.were
in the midst of its building program, so
having a principal with experience in
building programs was an asset to the
school.
"It's like building a new house,
everyone says they never want to do it
again, but it's worth it" said Tew.
McClellan said that the level of
satisfaction varies from teacher to
teacher, but she is very happy to be in,
anew room.
"The desks in the old rooms were
so old that some of my students were
sitting in desk their parents had sat in,'
she said. The old rooms were described
as dark and drab, but the new rooms are
infiltrated with light from sky lights,
windows and doors.
"There is so much life-to see. In the
old rooms, we wouldn't even know if it
had been raining because we had only a
small windowpane on the door. In this
\room we can see the outside world, life
and light," McClellan said. The ability
,to view the sunshine and life outside
the room has breathed new life into the
learning inside the room, she said.

C.R. 18 rezoning finally settled


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor
A lengthy zoning battle came
to a quiet close last week when
the county commission approved
a commercial intensive zoning
change for the final residential
corner of U.S. 301 and C.R. 18.
In July 2006, the commission
decided to turn consideration
of'the application over to an
administrative law judge.
The application by Craig
Patterson and Timothy Buffkin
concerns nearly 13 acres at
the corner at the southwest
corner of U.S. 301 and C.R. 18.
The application was opposed
by neighboring residents and
residents of Hampton Lake
who feared quality of life
and environmental impacts
of intensive commercial
development at that corner.
Supposedly, it was the fervor
of those objections that caused.
the commission to involve a third
party in hearing and ruling on the
evidence. Commissioners said
ex parte communications-one-
sided testimony in the absence
of all interested parties-had
been received in the form of
letters, phone calls or e-mails
from citizens opposed to a
rezoning application. Given the
amount of communication and
correspondence, commissioners
felt it would be difficult to enter
all of the information into the
record,so the attempts to sway the
commission resulted in multiple
commissioner recusals, leaving
the board without a quorum to
hear and decide the matter.
In order to resolve the matter,
the commission had to add a
procedure to the county code
to allow zoning matters to
be forwarded to the Florida
Department of Administrative
Hearings when a majority of
commissioners recuse themselves
an a quorum cannot be achieved.
The new code was put in place
in 2007, and after the applicants
filed a hearing request in April of
this year on the application, the


administrative hearing took place
on Aug. 19. The recommended
order of Judge Brainm D.. Canter
was submitted Sept. 18 and
approved by the commission last
week. ,
During the August hearing, the
applicants presented evidence
through a land use expert and
five members of the public spoke:
Ernest Reid, Jeff Marshall,
Michael Davis Randall Scoggins
and Paul Men .
According t the order:
-The land i relatively flat and
poorly drained, but not comprised
of wetlands. Development not
precluded with a drainage system
to control storm water.
-The property is bordered
by commercial, vacant and
residential uses.
-In 2004, the county
commission designated the
property commercial on the
future land use map. This
reclassification did not alter the
residential zoning, but prepared
the way for a commercial
rezoning request to be filed in
the future.
-The property is located
within Hampton's urban
development area,
-The property meets the
description of a "conspicuous and
accessible location convenient to
streets carrying large volumes of
traffic."
-Members of the public said
the zoning change would be
incompatible with residential use
to the west of the property and
concern about the future use of
the property, although two that


have been mentioned, truck stop
and bar, are not allowed under
commercial intensive zoning as
a matter of right. The landowner
would have to get special
permission for those uses from
the board of adjustment.
-Residents were also
concerned about traffic, but the
order concludes that C.R. 18's
level of service would not be
exceeded by a maximum build-
out of the property.
-While the zoning board
recommended denial of the
rezoning application, the
administrative law judge decided
that there was no basis in the
record to conclude "that the
rezoning would cause impacts
upon living conditions in the
neighborhoodthatare greaterthan
the reasonable and unavoidable
impacts associated with missed
uses in urbanizing areas." With
that, the judge recommended the
county commission approve the
rezoning application, and it did so
with at 3-1 vote. (Commissioner
Doyle Thomas was out of town
and not present to vote.)
Commissioner John Wayne
Hersey, the only commissioner
not to recuse himself from
hearing the matter in 2006, was
also the only commissioner to
back the opposition of residents,
who are his constituents, by
voting against the recommended
order, resulting in a 3-1 vote.
The commission had in the past
rejected prior rezoning requests
from Patterson for this land

"We went through a process
of evaluation to try to figure out
what was going to be the best
configuration to accommodate
the current rec department's
needs,and I think it was mutually

but also future," Stressing said.
When it comes to where the

because he requested intensive
commercial zoning instead of the
general commercial category.
Commissioner John Cooper
indicated the intensive
commercial category still did not
sit right with him at this corner of
the intersection. There are uses
permitted by special exception
that, if proposed for development
at the site, should be fought by
the residents and by the board,
Cooper said. He said he trusted
that Patterson would be a good

that enhances the corner without
damaging Hampton Lake, less
than a quarter mile away.
In 2005, the commission
even considered rewriting the


afford.
Building type is also tied
to available funds. Stressing
presented some estimates based
on current material and labor
costs for this size facility, which
is just over 11,100 square feet.
Pre-engineered metal building:
$1.45 million to $1.5 million.
A pre-engineered building
with a partial concrete block
facade: $1.5 million to $1.56
million.
Concrete block and bar joist:
$1.6 million to $1.63 million.
Tilt wall: $1.63 million to
$1.725 million.
If one of the latter options is
chosen, the city may qualify for
grants to pay for upgrades that
will make the recreation center
a hurricane hardened building,
meaning it could come to serve


a 17-to-I ratio in K-third grade
to a 21-to-I ratio in grades four,
five and six. The smaller classes
make the learning environment
more personal.
The new buildings are the only
buildings at LCS with hallways.
Tew said the buildings were not
originally planned to be covered,
but as the construction progressed
the money was available to not
only cover the halls, but enclose
them on each end with large glass
windows and doors.
"It is nice that the children can
line up inside a building and be
out of the rain if they need to,"
said McClellan.
The addition is still not without

general commercial category to
add uses that would no longer
require .intensilva commercial
zoning in order to accommodate
the rezoning request without
redefining the corner as
commercially intense. That
plan ran afoul of the regional
planning council, however,
which did not want to see the
distinction between general and
intense commercial uses watered
down. Instead, planned unit
developments were written into
the land development regulations.
That allows a particular use to
be proposed for development
without allowing by default a
long list of potential uses that
might not be as suitable.
The rezoning is apparently
.speculative on the part of the
applicants. The application for
rezoning is not associated with a

Operrt-etter to the Voters of Bradford GCourtyi


Jim Biggs, Candidate for Superintendent of Bradford


County Schools


It has been brought to my attention that there are e-mails and old
newspaper articles being circulated by some in opposition to my
campaign that are meant to deceive the voters of Bradford County
concerning my professional credibility.

After I resigned as Superintendent of Schools in Covington,
Kentucky, and moved to Florida, there were allegations brought
against my administration by disgruntled employees, ex-employees
and political foes. Some of the employees I had disciplined for
immoral conduct, some other employees which I had fired for theft
and failure to complete their duties, as well as some political foes,
activated these unfounded allegations. An investigation ensued
-and a number of newspaper articles were printed in the local
newspapers. Since these unsubstantiated articles that are being
referred to in the e-mails and/or printouts show no conclusion of
my innocence, they are being used as slander.

Throughout the investigation of all the allegations, not one charge
was brought against me, nor one allegation verified. To
substantiate my position in this matter, I have requested and
attached a letter from the U.S. Department of Justice which clearly
shows that there was no injustice on my part. I have nothing to
-hide concerning my honesty or my character throughout my
professional career.

It is sad that any campaign would endeavor to harm another's
reputation and engage in such unfounded slander. Please
understand, I do not support this method of running a campaign,
nor would I allow my campaign committee to engage in such smear
tactics. I ask that you continue to compare my qualifications,
experience, and leadership demonstrated in the past to that of my
opponent. Or more recently, during the last fourteen years,
compare my contributions to the improvement of the educational
system in Bradford County to that of my opponent.

I apologize for having to resort to this method of clarification'. Your
support, trust, and vote for Jim Biggs for Superintendent of
Bradford County Schools will show that this type of politics ,will not
be tolerated in Bradford County.

Sincerely,
Jim Biggs

Brown the cornerstone of important volunteer department,


BY MELISSA PYLE
Special to the Telegraph


When visiting fire station five
in Lawtey, you'll notice all the
new construction, equipment,
but most importantly the friendly
faces, the most prominent being
that of Fire Chief Mike Brown.
Brown is the man everyone
looks to for leadership and for
good reason; he is making a
difference- in the station and in
the community.
Brown's day really starts at
night. Like all the volunteers
he has to have a paycheck, so
at night he works as a full-time
truck driver. At the end of his
shift, he heads home to have a
family breakfast with his wife
and grandson. Family is very
important to Brown; his parents
have lived in the area his entire
life and now both of his grown
children and his grandchildren
reside in Bradford County.
Brown donates the first part
of his day to the school children
at Lawtey Community School.
He gives smiles and words of
encouragement, but also likes to
tease the ones who are running a
little late. He works on providing
free ice cream coupons for those
children in his grandson's class
that make 100 percent on their
spelling test.
"It's good to encourage th4
kids:' he said.
Later, Brown spends his
mornings in the fire station where
he's been the chief since 2000.
Brown set out with several goals
and many of those have been
accomplished. He is thankful
to God for provision and the

community for its support. The
expansion on the old building
has been completed and now
the station is able to hduse the
equipment purchased from the
Jacksonville Fire Department.
The engine and tanker truck
were a much-needed upgrade to
the fire department.
One of the most important
things to come to the north end
of Bradford County is a county
emergency rescue unit. The
county told Brown that if station
five could furnish the facilities,
the county would provide the
emergency team. Station five
is-the only station in the county
that has full time medics and
volunteer firemen in the same
station building, he said.
According to emergency
responders Joe Bradt and James

Marburger, the station is one of
the most reliable to work with
and Brown definitely takes care
of them.
The latest construction project
is a work in progress. Larger bays
will be capable of housing the
new vehicles, which will allow
space to store the emergency
response vehicle in the old
building. The new building
will be complete with sleeping
quarters upstairs, showers and
an exercise room down stairs.
Brown said the exercise room
is important to the life of the
firefighters because firefighting
equipment weighs 100 pounds
and it is a physical strain on the
body to carry equipment, fight
fires and rescue someone from a
burning structure.
"Most firefighters die of heart

attack," added Brown, so the
equipment is very vital to keep
everyone in good shape.
The station had hoped to be
finished with the new building
by the end of this year, but the
department needs at least another
$20,000 and up to $30,000 to
totally finish the building. In
today's economic environment,
Brown is concerned that this
year's donations will be less.
The donation requested of local
residents is only $36.50 a year.
All the money collected is used
in construction and equipment.
Brown has an open door policy
and if anyone would like to see
how the money is being spent,
they are encouraged to visit the
station.
In the past, community
businesses have been able to
donate money or supplies to the
projects, but in the last couple
of months the donations have
tapered off. This is why the
household donations are so
important to this year's budget.
There are fundraisers, like the


VFW Post

breakfast for
candidates
VFW Post 1016 invites
candidates for public office and


picture drive where families
can make a small donation to
the fire department and receive
a professional portrait. All
participants will receive a free
8x0 fortheirdonation. Forty-five
percent of any further purchases
will be donated to the station by
the photographer.
Money is not the only donation
the station needs, time is also a
valuable resource. The station
is currently operating with 10
volunteers. There is a need for
four of five more. Of the 10
currently volunteering, two are
currently unavailable due to
military service and illness. The
time it takes to volunteer can
vary. Eight to 10 hours a month
are needed for training, and up.
to 25 to 30 hours are needed
in a busy week. (Please contact
the fire department if you are
interested at (904) 782-1750.)
The department has responded
to 364 calls to date this year.
Brown said the most common
calls are medical, downed trees
from storms, car accidents and

helped handle a full week cbF
forest fires in May 2007. 1ii
typically generous fashion, mo St
of the volunteers took time awp Iy
from their paying jobs to hel!]p
protect the community from tlidI

Brown spends his daytime
hours trying to get sleep between ;i
emergency calls, but it's what h le
loves doing and he feels it is hi is
duty, even a calling.
"Sometimes we are the firniti
people there to give a shouldeiri
to cry on. I want to help people
in need, comfort them, pray fo r
them:' he said.
Brown's goal is to give first-
class service to the community'
and it shows in all the things that
are being accomplished at station
five.
When asked what he loves most
about the job, Brown smiled and
said, "When someone hugs you r
neck it makes it all worth it. I1
don't seek them, but the rewards
do come."

New River has new addition


BY MELISSA PYLE
Special to the Telegraph


The all-volunteer fire
department of New River is proud
to be using its newest building.
Open in July of this year, it is
a much-needed addition that
houses the department's engine,
brush truck and quick response
vehicles.
The addition has allowed for
the tanker truck to be stored in
the department's older building.
All of its units are now out of the
elements and will stay in better
condition.
The new building was paid for
by the donations of community
members, businesses, friends
and family. The donations are
something this community has
a wonderful history of doing,
according to members of the
department. The land itself
was a donation from the Leslie
Whitehead family, the building
which houses the kitchen and
living areas, was a donation from
Southside Elementary.
Donations were given in
large part by the Plum Creek
Timber C raw, jj This, and
"other -cqr .t,' t al loweti-the
building to be completed in less
than two years. The attractive
landscaping was also a donation
of materials and labor by Fire
Chief Al Sanchez and North


Volunteer Glenn Garber and Assistant Fire Chief Dean
Bennett of the New River Volunteer Fire Department.


Florida'Landscaping. Cookouts,
donation letters and local
community leaders helped to
finish the contributions needed
to complete the new building.
"It all started on a wing and
a prayer. We had planned on
just building a pole barn," said
Assistant Chief Dean Bennett.
The donations of time, money
and materials were a blessing to
the department, and the building
is now completed with just a few
finishing touches needed. An
equipment fund has been set up so
thatany.futureneeds can be met

ranges from fellow firefighters
'from Gainesville to people who
helped with bake sales. They
would love to express their


deepest gratitude to everyone
who contributed.

SELLARS
FOR COUNTY COMMISSIONER DISTRICT 3


WHY...?
Because I am a person that is Dedicated to District 3 and ALL the Citizens of Bradford County and
willing to take a stand and go the extra mile to accomplish the needs of Bradford County.
Because I am a Team Player I am a person that would work with the entire Board and the other
Constitutional Officers.
Because I am a Lady with high standards of professional traits. I feel Common Sense and Good Work
Ethics can get a job done. I know I have both and have proven it in the past.

As County Commissioner I will:
a. Study all proposed taxes. I'm not for raising TAXES.
b. Continue to be committed to improving the drainage problems in Bradford County. As the
Citizens of District 3 (Griffis Loop) and (Saratoga Heights) discussed while out on the campaign
trail.
c. Study to see if consolidating the City and County Law Enforcement would be of any benefit the
Citizens of Bradford County.
d. Bring Diversity to the Board of County Commissioners. That is something that I can offer that
my opponent is not able to do. Diversity in leadership is good and should be encouraged as
your County Commissioner. I would work to insure that our county government strives for a
Diverse work force at all levels.
e. Be your voice and be proud to work for you, the Citizens of Bradford County.



I thank you again, for your support during the Primary Election and
now I ask for your continued support on November 4th.
,Pd. Pol. Adv. Pd. for and approved by Lila Sellars, Democrat for County Commissioner District 3.

discussion.
"Mr. Parrish does an
outstanding job for Union County
and has since day one. 1 think
Union County's EMS and Mr.
Parrish are second to none."
"He took over the fire
department and did an
outstanding job with that. But
I think this is too much for Mr.
Parrish," Jenkins said.
In addition to Parrish's role
as the director of EMS, he is
the chief of the Union County
Fire Department and is also an
elected Union County school
board member.
"It takes a lot of his time"'
Jenkins said. "I think Mr.
Parrish going to Bradford
County is putting too much on
him. If Bradford County needs a
director, they need to hire one,"
Jenkins said.
Cossey stated that Parrish said
he would tell the board at any
point in time if it became too
much for him.
Commissioner Morris Dobbs


added, "This is not a forever
thing anyway."
"In our last discussion, we
were going to go with six months
and look at things," Jenkins said.
The county clerk explained
that it is a year-to-year contract,
however, if either county decides
they want out, they can do so at
any time. Usually in documents,
she said that things are worded
to run from fiscal year to fiscal
year.
She said that they intend to
have a meeting every month with
her, a boprd representative, an
EMS representative, Dr. Jonas,
Bradford County Manager Brad
Carter and other representatives
from Bradford County.
"If we see this is not going to
work at all, we'll be the first to
pull out of it', she said.
Cossey looked at it from
the angle of being in Bradford-
County's position. "We hope
it never happens, but what if
something happens to Mr. Parrish
and we need Columbia County to
come to the same thing for us?"
she asked.
Dobbs added that, according
to Parrish, there was no doubt
who comes first with him.


"He made that statement in
the paper and he hasn't backed
off from that. I'm also thinking
about the financial benefits that
we have."
"I think Mr. Parrish would
be man enough to tell us if he
couldn't handle both jobs. The
financial gains, especially at this
time, believe me, we need it,"
said Dobbs.
The final vote from the board
was 2-1, with Jenkins not in favor
of having Parrish serve as a dual
EMS director for both Union and
Bradford counties.
Allen Parrish then thanked
the board for their confidence in
him and said that he appreciated
Jenkins' concerns and did not
think the situation had anything
to do with the school board.
"I've always kept that separate
from my county obligation and
I've done a really good job of
making sure on the school board


end I don't get involved with
anything in Union County except
the value adjustment hoard," he
said.
"That isn't where that was
going," said Jenkins. "That was
laboutl work load on you." He
closed by saying that from day
one, he had been with Parrish and
will continue, but is concerned
that Parrish will get overloaded
in his commitments and duties.
Bradford County has
also approved the interlocal
agreement.

BANDS
Continued from page 1B

the 15 band performances in
five categories, applying the
ratings of superior, excellent,
good, fair or poor for
performance. Each band was
given 15 minutes for its
performance, equivalent to
what's been done for halftime
shows during football games.
The categories and this
year's judges were as follows:
Marching and
Maneuvering- Steve A.
Gardner, director of bands for
Westgate K-8 School in Port
St. Lucie; Marching General
Effect-George W. Walters,
retired director of bands in
Miami; Marching Music
Performance Number 1 -Mark
P. Nelson, director of bands at
Satellite High School in
Satellite Beach; Marching
Music Performance Number
2-Eddie Steadman, director
of bands at Ruckle Middle
School in Niceville;
Auxiliary-Penny M.
Janowski, private instructor,
Largo; and Percussion-Josh
Bula, recent director of bands
at Leon High School and
doctoral candidate at Florida
State University in
Tallahassee.
The Union County High
School band received all
superior ratings with one
excellent, giving them an
overall final rating of superior.
The Union County High
School band performed its
show with a collection of hit
songs from the 70s that
included the Doobie Brothers'
"Takin' it to the Streets,"
followed by Grand Funk
Railroad's "We're an
American Band," featuring a
dance performance by the
Tigerettes, the drum line solo


"Bashin"' with a Tigerette
hoops performance, finished
off with Simon and
Garfunkel's "The Sound of
Silence."
Dorsey said the LJCHS band
students were very excited and
pumped up for the day and
gave the crowd its best
performance of the year.
"I was (and still am) so
incredibly proud of them. They
have learned a great deal so far
and I'm excited about what
they will accomplish by the
end of the school year,"
Dorsey said.
The UCHS band's assistant
director is Stanley Figaro, and
Denise Ricks is the auxiliary
instructor. The percussion
instructor is James. Goodwin.
The drill designer is Chris
Bonner.
The Bradford High School
band received five excellent
scores and one superior, giving
it an overall rating of excellent.
Their excitement and
camaraderie was felt in the
stands when, upon hearing
their band's scores, the
students began hugging and
crying tears of joy.
"This is a band that has been
through a lot together," said
Bradford band director
Jonathan Hall. "I was given the
opportunity to begin directing
them in January this year when
the former director, Dustin
Adams, transferred to the
middle school band."
Hall said the Bradford band
has experienced some ups and
downs in the past couple of
years and has been through
several band directors.
"That makes it hard on kids
to stay with the program when
they might wonder if it was
even worth it," said Hall.
Two years ago, the Bradford
band was down to 27 members
and has since re-grouped and
grown to 52 in number..


Hall said former director
Adams (Nwho attended the
event) started with the band
last year, setting the culture,
and they were able to receive
all good ratings at last year's
assessment. Those students
were able to see that all their
hard work was worth it when,
a year later, they stepped up to
all excellent marks and one
superior, with an overall
excellent rating.
"This band is not only better
than they were a year ago, but
better than they were a month,
even a week ago," said Hall.
When asked how he felt just
before his band took the field
to be assessed for the first time
under his direction, Hall
admitted he was nervous.
"I wasn't nervous in the
sense that I didn't think they
could do it, but because I knew
they were capable and
wondered if they would
continue to execute the
performance at the level we
know they can."
This year's performance
will always stand out for
Bradford High School. Hall is
not only the band's director,
but was the drill director and
completely choreographed the
show titled, "I Dreamed a/
Dream." He is assisted by
Adams and auxiliary instructor
Tammy McCormick.


Tornadoes fall
to 1-3 in
district after
27-6 loss
BY CLIFF SMVELLEY
Telegraph Stqff Writer
It was another struggle for
the Bradford football team's
offense, which generated
approximately 50 yards in a
27-6 loss to District 3-2A
opponent Ribault on Oct. 17 in
Jacksonville.
For the third straight week,
Bradford (1-5, 1-3 in District
3) failed to find the end zone
until the final period. The
Tornadoes scored on an 80-
yard drive, but three 15-yard
penalties on Ribault helped
their cause. That drive featured
all five of Bradford's first
downs in the game.
Despite that drive, the
Tornadoes still gained just 28
yards in the second half.
After scoring 19 points in its
first district game this season,
Bradford has averaged eight
points per game in. three
district games since then.
Bradford's offense is
averaging nine points per game
overall.
Bradford head coach Steve'
Hoard said his players were at

a physical disadvantage
against Ribault, plus having
lost two starters on the
offensive line has hurt the
Tornadoes this season.
Another starter on the line was
hindered against Ribault
because of an ankle sprain.
Also, offensive coordinator
Bryan Jones is no longer with
the team due to personal
issues, Hoard said. That forced
a shakeup of the staff in the
middle of the week.
"It hurt us really bad,
obviously," Hoard said.
Ashley Harden has taken
over as offensive coordinator
to go along with his current
duties as coach of the receivers


and defensive backs. Marcus
Miller, the defensive
coordinator who also coaches
linebackers, will now also
coach the quarterbacks.
Ribault (4-2, 3-1) had its
own offensive struggles for a
time. Bradford's defense held
the Trojans to 63 yards in the
first half after scoring on the
game's opening series. That
included a minus-8 rushing
total.
However, the Trojans got
approximately 100 yards from
running back Taren Wilson in
the second half. Wilson scored
twice, including an I l-yard

Six
amendments
on the ballot
Florida voters will find six
proposed amendments to the
Florida Constitution on the
general election ballot.
Understanding the
amendments prior to entering
the voting booth is absolutely
essential since they tend to be
lengthy, complicated and
difficult to comprehend. Four
proposed amendments were
initiated by the Taxation and
Budget Reform Commission,
one by the Legislature and
one by citizens' initiative.,
Originally there were nine
proposals, but three were
removed by the Florida State
Supreme Court. Voters will
find amendment numbers
five, seven and nine vacant
on the ballot, which represent
the invalid proposals.
Prior to 1968, Florida
voters had no way of
initiating changes to the
constitution other than
petitioning the Legislature.
The revised 1968 constitution
contains a provision for
citizens to gather signatures
and have proposed
amendments put directly on
state-wide ballots, a
sometimes risky proposition
that could possibly degrade
the constitution with
amendments better handled
by laws.
Florida received substantial
publicity in 2006 with the
passage of the "Pig
Amendment," which had to
do with pregnant sows, that
many people thought
"cluttered" the constitution.
In 2000, voters approved a
high speed train connecting
Miami, Orlando and Tampa,
in spite of the governor
calling it prohibitively
expensive. In 2004, Florida
voters removed the
amendment from the
constitution. *
From the book, "Proposed
Constitutional Amendments


to be voted on November 4,
2008," distributed by the
Division of Elections at the
Florida Department of State,
the Telegraph will review the
six proposed amendments
below, offer comments and.
express opinions, which are,
of course, non-binding
recommendations.
Amendment 1
(Legislature)
Ballot Title: Declaration of
Rights
Ballot Summary:
Proposing an amendment to
the state constitution to delete
provisions authorizing the
Legislature to regulate or
prohibit the ownership,
inheritance, disposition, and
possession of real property by
aliens ineligible for
citizenship.
The proposal was
submitted by the Legislature
to change an existing statute
that allows the state to
regulate or prohibit aliens
from owning or controlling
real property. "Real" property
is the legal term for land.
Aliens, as referred to in this
article, aren't from Mars or
the moon. They are people in
the country without proper
credentials or those with'
records that bar them from
becoming American citizens.
Do not support this
platitude. It sounds as
American as apple pie, but its
passage could put an alien in
the house next door whose
criminal record keeps him
from obtaining citizenship.
Vote "no" and sleep well at
night. If you vote "yes," the
state will be unable to
prohibit aliens from buying
homes or other property in
your community.
Amendment 2 ( Citizen
Initiative)
Ballot Title: Florida
Marriage Protection
Amendment
Ballot Summary: This
Amendment protects
marriage as the legal union of
only one man and one
woman as husband and wife


Page 4B


and provides that no other
legal union that is treated as
marriage or the substantial
equivalent thereof shall be
valid or recognized.
Vote "yes." Leave aside
morality, religion and
psychology. In 4,000 years of
recorded history, the term
marriage has been defined as
a union by and between one
man and one woman. Leave
the historical term as is and
look elsewhere for a term that.
describes living arrangements
for other combinations.
Amendment 3 (Taxation
and Budget Reform
Commission)
Ballot Title: Changes and
Improvements Not Affecting
the Assessed Value of
Residential Real Property
Ballot Summary:
Authorizes the Legislature,
by general law, to prohibit
consideration of changes in
improvements to residential
improvements to residential
real property which increases
resistance to wind damage
and installation of renewable
energy source devices as
factors in assessing the
property's value for ad
valorem taxation purposes.
Effective upon adoption,
repeals the existing
renewable energy source
device exemption no longer
in effect.
In other words, the
property appraiser .cannot
increase your assessment for
adding storm shutters or other
storm protective devices to
your home. But that
provision is only one of many
levies potentially affected by
the proposed amendment,
including voter-approved
exemptions for new
businesses, business
expansions and historic
properties. Landowners
should contact the county
property appraiser for
questions concerning
individual holdings.
Vote "yes" on proposed
Amendment no. 3
See BALLOT, p. 8B


Response to
PTO article by
Supt. Hatcher
Dear Editor:
I would like to share witl
you regarding some recent
events a Starke elementary
School.
The purpose of this letter is
to clear up any
misunderstandings regarding
who is responsible for some
recent accounting issues.
The PTO has not and, I
repeat, has not been
responsible for any late
payments to vendors or any
other misuse. The PTO of
Starke Elementary School is an
outstanding group who does
outstanding work for our
students and staff. Their
fundraisers are deposited into
an internal account at Starke
Elementary. Recently we have
requested an internal audit of
this account and the PTO
account is accurate and to the
best of our knowledge, all
creditors have been paid. The
investigation continues as to
why we got behind with our
creditors.
Please join me and thank the
PTO of Starke Elementary for
all their good efforts and
encourage them to continue

Harry M. Hatcher, 11

Parent has Pop
Warner
complaint
Dear Editor,
For as long as I can
remember, my son Matthew
has wanted to play football.
However, in July of 2005 he
was diagnosed with a rare
condition known as Legg-
Perthes Disease. During the
disease process, which takes
approximately 3-5 years, the
supply of blood to the blood
vessels in the ball of the hip is
cut off, causing the bone to die
and break away. Once the dead
bone is gone, new blood
vessels and bone begin to
grow. While the new bone
grows, it is extremely soft and
easy to damage; therefore the
child is restricted from any
activity that may cause impact
to the hip, which would
include most sports. Otherwise
the bone will not grow
properly and there will be
lifelong effects to the person's
hip including arthritis and
limited rang of motion.
This past summer my
husband and I had been


considering signing Matthew
for Pop Warner. Since it had
only been 3 years since his
diagnosis, we took Matthew to
the doctor to see if he could
finally play any sports. On July
21st, we traveled to the
Shriner's Children's 'hospital
in Tampa. There we received
wonderful, but frustrating
news. Matthew had been
misdiagnosed and his hip was
fine. This news was frustrating
because, all this time we had
kept him from doing lots of
things that "normal" boys his
age do, which was an
extremely difficult .task
because he also suffers from
ADHD. But the news was a
blessing nonetheless.
So we signed him up for
Bradford County Pop Warner
football. Matthew was so
excited! On the first day of
practice, the coach, Joe
Gordon, told parents that this
division of Pop Warner, which
was the Mighty Mites, was
about learning football and
good sportsmanship. Every
child had a minimum amount
of playing time during each
game, which was 12 plays, so
no child would be excluded
from participating. This was a

'Canes finally beat Williston

for SMAC championship


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
It seems like year after year,
Williston prevents Bradford
Middle School from winning
the Suwannee Middle School
Athletic Conference
championship in volleyball.
This year was no different-at
least in that regard.
What changed is that the
Hurricanes, despite dropping
the first game of the match,
finally claimed the SMAC
title, topping Williston 15-9 in
a tiebreaker.
Besides winning the
championship, the Hurricanes
kept a perfect season intact.
They finished the year 16-0.
"I am just so proud of these
guys," head coach Eric


Verunac said.
Verunac didn't even care
that on Oct. 20 he was sporting
pink hair, the result of a
promise he made to the players
if they came through and won
the championship. He had to
explain himself at Subway, he
said, when he went to get
lunch, but added, "It is totally
worth it."
Bradford lost the first game
to Williston 25-22. At that
point, Skyler Feltner said she
and several of her teammates
were in tears.
"We were really nervous,"
she said.
However, Feltner and the
rest of the team's eighth-

Williston had defeated
Bradford the last two years in

match. After last year's loss,
Juanita Carter vowed that
Bradford would return to the
championship match her
eighth-grade year and defeat
Williston.
"It was important," Carter
said, but she admitted she was

did her best to pump her team
up and inspire the players to

It would )Ie easy to imagine
Clayton Mosley Iand the other
members of lihe Keystone
Heights baseball team putting
pressure on themselves to
follow\ up last season's run to
the state semifinals, but onle
thing Mosley does not have to
worry about is weighing his
options after high school. Tlhe
senior has already taken care
of that, verbally committing to
play for the Army Black
Knights.
"It makes it a lot easier and
more relaxing to be able to
enjoy your senior season,"
Mosley said of making such a
decision prior to the start of the
season.
Several schools were
showing interesting Mosley,
including the llniviersity of
Central Florida and the
University of North Florida.
Mosley admitted lie had not
given much thought to playing
for one of the service
academies, but that changed
after Army coaches began
recruiting Mosley at the
conclusion of last year's high
school season and prior to the
start of summer travel ball,
(Mosley plays for the
Gainesville Hardballers.)
Mosley, who said lie never
even considered leaving the
state, likes what he saw of
Army's program. He liked the


Clayton Mosley
fact that every player seems to
work together toward a
common goal, he said. He also
said the atmosphere made him
feel comfortable.
"The coaches and the
players are the most humble
group you'll ever meet,"
Mosley said. "It's like a huge
family up there."
Keystone head coach Alan
Mattox said Mosley has a


tremendous opportunity to be
part of a Division I program
that has won at least 25 games
each of the last five seasons.
Mattox said the Knights are
getting a player who is a
tireless worker and a good
athlete all the way around who
especially makes his presence
felt defensively with tough
catches in center field.
"He's a guy you want in the
lineup every day," Mattox
said. "He's going to take avay
runs with his defensive play."
Besides playing in the
outfield, Mosley also pitches.
The senior said Army coaches
told him he could possibly
have opportunities to pitch, but
he will definitely compete for
a starting position in the
outfield. Mosley welcomes the
chance to do both, but also
looks forward to remaining in
the outfield, where he takes
pride in his play.
"I work extremely hard on
my defensive side," he said.
"That's where I feel like I'm
strongest."
Mattox said Mosley is also a
solid hitter in the middle of the

LETTERS
Continued from page 4B

relief to'hear since Matthew
had never played a contact
sport. Unfortunately, we found
out that what Joe had said was
not true. The truth was that the
boys with more experience,
and the boys whose fathers
where coaches where given all
the play time while the others
watched from the sideline.
On Sept. 13, the Mighty
Mites had a game in Starke.
The head coach, Joe Gordon,
was not at this game; only the
assistant coaches were present.
I sat through the first three
quarters of the game watching
Matthew sit on the sidelines,
along with a few other boys
who were inexperienced,
repeatedly asking to go in the
game, only to be told no each
time, while the coach's sons
had not been pulled out of the
game at all. Finally, at the
beginning of the fourth quarter
I had had enough. I went to
Braxton Britt, who is the
football coordinator for
Bradford County, and told him
what was going on. He was as
mad as I was. He went to the
coaches and had them put all
the boys in that had been
sitting on the sideline. So
Matthew finally got to go in,
for 4 plays, then he was put
back on the sideline for the rest
of the game.
That following Monday at
practice, my husband and I
expressed our concerns about
what had happened at the
game. Joe was very
understanding and assured us
that it only happened because
he wasn't there and the other
coaches were new. He also
assured us that it wouldn't
happen again. Then, on Sept.
20, 1 drove Matthew an hour
and forty- five minutes away
to the town of Pierson for the
game, only to experience the
same thing, only this time my
son had to sit on the sidelines
in the pouring rain. He was in
for the first 6 plays of the
game, and then he sat on the
bench the rest of the time.
Only this time there was a Pop
Warner official there checking
the mandatory play sheets.
However, we she came to the
Bradford sideline, she was lied
to and told that all the boys
had gotten their 12 plays.
When Matthew heard them
talking, he turned and told her
that he hadn't gotten his..12,
plays, and the' coach lied and
said that he didn't know what
he was talking about. During
this, I also had to listen to the
parents yelling at the Pop
Warner official, telling her
she's not supposed to talk to
the players and that she needed
to mind her own business and
get off the field. Of course
these were the coach's wives
and the parents of the other
boys that play the whole game.
At the end of that game, I


took my son into the restroom,
took his uniform off and
turned it in before we left the
field. I refuse to have my son's
self-esteem destroyed because
his father is not a coach and he
had been unable to play
football before now. 1 have e-
mailed Pop Warner and told
them the situation and
requested that my $100 be
refunded, only to be given the
runaround. When 1 finally
threatened to write this letter to
the editor, I received a
response from Ricky Wright,
the president. He told me ihe
was forwarding my e-mail to
Joe Grooms, and that I would
be hearing something soon. 1
did receive an e-mail from Mr.
Grooms on 9/25, and he
informed me that he had
requested copies of the
mandatory play sheets. 1
reminded him that 1 had heard
the coach lie with my own
ears, so I wouldn't be surprised
if the documents were
falsified. I have not heard
anything from anyone at Pop
Warner since. The only person.
that I have dealt with in my
Pop Warner experience that
showed any interest in my
feelings, the feelings of my
child, or the fairness of the
game was Braxton.
The main reason that I am
writing this letter is not
because I am angry. I want
other parents to know the truth
about what really goes on in
Pop Warner. If your child is a
first-time player a child whose
father is unable to coach, then
you may want to consider
other associations for your
child's sports. I have since
signed Matthew up for Upward
Bound Flag Football, and he
loves it. He looks forward to
going to practice. I don't have
to argue with him about going
or have him pretend that he is
sick to get out of it. And he
gets his fair share of playing
time without asking, or should
I say begging, for'it.
Becky Garlo

Response to
letter about
Pop Warner
Dear Editor:
. ,l ,.mld lik; t, rm;ndA


team. for those that have fallen
short with play requirements
the game is stopped and the
players are put in the game
until they meet the play
requirements and for this the
plays are counted by the
officiating staff.
As for the accuracy of the
counts it will likely always be
a debate. I will also not deny
that some of the players play a
lot more than others based on
the position thai they play and
the level of experience that
they have. What happens in
most cases is that a first-year
player, is limited to the
positions) that they play for
the most part because of safety
concerns. With this you will
have around 10 different
players that will all play the
same position, and with those
positions the number of plays
that are available in a40 min
game is limited. This has
always been normal for first
year players to spend most of
the year learning the game and
gaining experience towards
more safe playing time.
As for the concerns of the
parents) I always try to
accommodate the parents,
which may or may not produce
the results that the parentss'
would like to see. With that by
no means would a head coach,
assistant coaches or
the football Coordinator
(Coach Joe) who
has volunteered his time for
the last 30 plus years to the
community, try to lower the
self-esteem of a child. Also
for her concerns of the
response time from Mr. Ricky
Wright or Joe Grooms from
the Putnam level, who like the
rest of us have an everyday job
that they must go to and a
family to attend, I feel like
they responded in a timely
manner with her e-mail
starting around the 20th of
September and a follow up e-
mail from the league being
sent out the 22nd of September
and "corresponding e-mail
following thru the 28th.
As always, our-goal is to
provide a drug-free
environment for our youth
while instilling teamwork,
sportsmanship and most of all
acceptable academic
achievement.

run on which he went
practically untouched up the
middle, putting Ribault up 27-
0 with 7:09 left in the game.
"The kids just got gassed in
the second half," Hoard said.
It was the passing game that
gave the Trojans their first
points when Javon Bell scored
on a 15-yard pass from Malik
Jackson. The Ribault offense
never threatened to score again
in the first half as the Trojans
punted twice, turned the ball
over on downs once and
committed two turnovers.
One of those turnovers put
an end to Ribault's second
series. The Trojans were
facing second-and-10 from the
Bradford 48 when John Tyson
forced a fumble on a
quarterback sack. Joseph
Lombel recovered the loose
ball for Bradford.
The Bradford offense,
though, went three-and-out, as
was the case with the team's
six first-half possessions (not
counting the last possession of
the half during which time
expired).
Punter Tyler Cubbedge did
his part to help his defense out
with kicks that pinned the
Trojans deep in their territory.
He averaged 35 yards on punts


"He's just a tireless worker,"
Mattox said, while also adding
that Mosley is everything a
coach-could want in a player.
Mosley said a lot of credit
goes to his coaches at


that were not returned until
Ribault's Wilson returned one
7 yards late in the half.
"He's been pretty consistent
for us," Hoard said of
Cubbedge.
Bradford's Rodney Mosley
put a stop to Ribault's last
possession of the half when he
intercepted a pass at his own
28. The Trojans, though, came
out in the second half and
scored on three straight
possessions. _
A pass interference penalty
oi Ribault gave the Tornadoes
their first first down of the
game, which occurred with
approximately five minutes to
play. The Tornadoes then
gained two more on the next
two plays when Mosley gained
10 yards on a run and Ribault
was flagged for a personal
foul. Another personal foul
penalty later in the drive gave
Bradford a first down at the
Ribault 19. Quarterback Trey
Winkler hooked up with tight
end Scott Crews from there for
a touchdown with 2:40
remaining on the clock. The
PAT was no good.
Ribault was not content to
run out the clock, trying to
take a shot downfield with a
deep pass, but Bradford's
Charles Jones was in position

The team came out in the
second game fired up, Verunac
said. Bradford won 25-19 to
force a tiebreaker.
"We just had to play smart
and calm down," Lakia Bright,
another eighth-grader, said.
Eighth-grader Sonya

making stupid mistakes and
regained its focus on the goal
at hand-winning the SMAC
title.
"We really wanted it so

Vocal support from fans in

The eight eighth-graders got
the championship they wanted,
but the sixth- and seventh-
graders said they will settle for
nothing less in the coming
years. Atkinson and seventh-
grader Mackenzie Gault said
they look forward- to
continually improving and,
hopefully, winning more
championships.
Sixth-grader Lainie Rodgers
said this year's win will help
future teams.
"Now we have the
confidence to do it," Rodgers
said. "We know we can do it."
As for coming up with what
their coach would have to do if
they won, the Bradford players
had several ideas, including
having him wear a dress to
school and having his head
shaved. Verunac nixed both
ideas, but said he could live
with the pink hair when that
was suggested.
The players really got into
giving their coach.a new look.
Gault said they sprayed so
much color in Verunac's hair
that it dripped down into his
face.
It was a magical moment for
the players. Eighth-grader
Nicole Jenkins said, "I wish
our season wasn't over."

left after the last of the old
trailers fiom Sid's Trailer Park
was torn down. I left messages
for all the commissioners to
call me. None did. I was told
once by Mr. Beasley, Mr.
Cason is who I should talk to,
but he was always in North
Carolina. 1 had already left hint
a message.
Yesterday, I talked with
Lake Butler City Manager
John Berchtold and advised
him about the problem. He,
being very professional, said
"he would check into it."
Within an hour, Hardy
Clyatt was out here with a
crew and in just a couple of
hours, cleaned up and removed
all the debris I had been trying
to get help with.
Lake Butler is very fortunate
to have a city manager like Mr.
Berchtold and his staff of city
employees. As a citizen and
taxpayer, Ifind it appalling
that the commissioners could
not come to terms over such a
small amount of money to give
the city employees a raise;
additional monies were found
to offset this expense. I find it
even more appalling that they
don't return calls to their
constituents.
Another thing I find very
offensive, as a Christian, is the
swearing by one of the
commissioners during regular
meetings at City Hall. We, as
citizens, should not condone
this kind of behavior by an
elected official. There are laws
that prohibit such. Intelligence
alone tells one that you don't
represent your city and
constituents this way.
Again, I just wanted the
great citizens in this town to
know that we are blessed to
have a city manager who is
working for the betterment of
all of us and doing a great job.
The elected city
commissioners should work
with him, not against him for
their personal views.
Chuck Floyd

Voters, do your
homework
Dear Editor:
I've been following very
closely the campaigns of both
presidential candidates and
after the final debate, I am
very concerned that if Senator
Obama is elected president of
thisgreaLcountry, he and the
liberal Congress Will turn this
country into a "welfare state."
Senator Obama's economic
plan includes massive tax
increases to pay for his "spread
the wealth" program. Until our
economy recovers (and it will


over time), we, the average
American who pays the
majority of taxes in this
country, cannot afford a tax
increase. Contrary to what
Senator Biden might think,
paying higher taxes is not
patriotic! Hasn't Biden heard
of the Boston Tea Party?
Obama's economic plan
calls for a tax increase for
workers making more than
$250,000 annually and
redistributing those taxes to
workers who make $42,000 or
less annually. Senator Obama
says that would mean a tax cut
for 95 percent of American
workers. The senator needs to
check with the Treasury
Department. He would, find
that 45 percent of American
workers do not pay income
taxes. He can call it a "tax cut"
if he wants to, but I call it
sending those workers a
"welfare check."
How can you cut taxes for
workers who don't pay taxes
to begin with? Senator Obama
and Senator McCain referred
to "Joe the Plumber" several
times during the debate. Why
should someone like Joe in
Ohio want to pay the plumbing
company he works for
knowing if he exceeds that
$250,000 threshold, he's going
to be taxed heavily so someone
who doesn't have the same
ambition and drive to get
ahead is going to get part of
that money? Senator Obama
blew it off in a stump speech
in New Hampshire today
(10/16/08) by saying, "How
many plumbers do you know
who make $250,000 a year?"
The senator has obviously
never hired a plumber!
This country was built on
the premise that the
immigrants who came here
could make a better life for
themselves and their families
with hard work. There was no
politician telling them, "Sorry,
but if you work too hard and
make too much money, the
government is going to take a
portion of what you have
earned in the form of higher
taxes and give it to someone
who has no drive or ambition
or desire to get ahead."
I wonder what people like
Orville and Wilbur Wright and
Thomas Edison and Benjamin
Franklin and Henry Ford and
Eli Whitney and Firestone and
all those great inventors and
entrepreneurs who worked so
hard to help make this country
the greatest country in the
world would think if they
,could se .wlkat Americam is-in ,
danger 6fbecomfing-a socialist
welfare state?
I could go on and on
building a case against Senator
Obama, but I want to say one
last thing to the voting citizens
of the Lake Region. Do your


"homework" where these
candidates are concerned, and
I think you will find that this
great country cannot afford an
Obama presidency.
Betty Hodges

We can get
through this
Dear Editor:
I don't know about you, but
stupidity scares me. I watch as
it unfolds everyday as the
lawmakers in Washington try
to wrangle out deals in regard
to the current financial mess
instead of getting down to
business and fixing the
problem. I am of the mindset
that we (the American people)
need to deal with our own
problems as much as we can.
If we wait for Washington, we
will be waiting for a long time.
Besides, I don't want them in
my business anymore than is
absolutely necessary.
The problem that is affecting
most of us is on main street,
not Wall Street. Our small
town businesses are struggling.
Money is tight for the business-
person, because money is tight
for the consumer. It is a fact
that when the economy is
good, small, independent
businesses thrive, but when
there is a down turn, they
suffer more than their fair
share. But we are small town
America, we are survivors, and
we will make it.
It is important for each of us
to support our local merchants;
the ones who have stuck it out
in our community through the
ups and downs; the ones who
always contribute to local
causes and fundraisers. There
is very little, if anything, that
you can't find here that you
need. The local restaurants
have great specials going on,
our grocery stores advertise
their specials each week and
you don't have to drive as far,
the many small, specialty
shops in our community offer
everything from the necessities
of life. for home and business
to unique gifts and gadgets.
So, the next time you need
something or want to go out to
eat, think local first. Let's stick
together and support one
another to keep our friends and
neighbors working and our
businesses open.

and wrist watches. Modern jewelry with
diamonds and other precious stones are also
being accepted.
One person that attended the Roadshow ,
brought in an 1864 Civil War sword and
a coin collection and left 45 minutes later
$10,000 richer. Another was not as lucky
but seemed happy with the $355.00 they
received for broken gold jewelry. "I think
this is a great idea" said one lady that sold
her old class ring and some broken gold
chains. "The stuff was just lying in a dresser
drawer for years." She received $248.42 for
her efforts. Jeff Parsons, the president of
the Treasure Hunters Roadshow explained
what the show is all about. It's a chance for
anyone to sell their stuff and get what it's
really worth he said. It seems everyone has


items they have wondered about or want to-
sell but really don't know where to go said
Parsons. He said the show has been in over
600 cities since 2001. When asked what
the most memorable experience was he had
a quick answer. "Without a doubt it was
a show in Pennsylvania when an elderly
gentleman asked if we could send someone
with him to visit an old toy store he had
closed down 50 years ago. It was like .
walking back in time" Parsons said "the
store's 50 year old inventory was still on
the shelves the store was a treasure trove of
collectible toys. I have never seen anything
like it. It was simply unbelievable!"
It seems the store was closed due to World
War II. "I had to go serve my country."
the owner told Parsons. Serve he did
for the next 35 years. The collection of
vintage toys still in their original boxes
sold for more than $650,000. All this
week Roadshow experts will be accepting
various types of antiques and collectibles.
The event is free and no appointment is
necessary.
