Man killed in crash after high-speed chase


A high-speed chase that ,led law
enforcement officers' through Starke
and into Alachua County efided in a-
violent crash that claimed the life of a
man suspected in two robberies on Feb.
3.
Capt. Brad Smith of the Bradford
County Sheriff's Office said James
Estes, 46, of Fairbanks (in Alachua
County) fled from deputies after they
attempted to stop him i.n connection
with a robbery that occurred just before
3 p.m. at the Kangaroo on S.R. 16 at
Morgan Road.
The clerk had described a grey-green
Kia Sportage with a white male driving.
Deputies spotted a vehicle and driver
matching the description and attempted
to stop it when the driver drove away
at high speeds and turned onto Morgan
Road.
Capt. Smith said deputies gave chase
and followed the vehicle to Brownlee


Road (C.R. 229) and into
Starke. Just inside the
city limits, deputies and
Starke Police Department
officers attempted to set
up a roadblock using stop
sticks, but Estes was able
to swerve through them
and continue his flight.
Capt. Smith said that.
throughout the'chase, Estes
repeatedly and deliberately
swerved his vehicle in an
attempt to ram pursuing,
officers, and also swerved
directly at the vehicles of


James Estes


innocent bystanders. Capt.,
Smith said Sheriff Gordon Smith was
forced to fire on the vehicle when it
swerved directly at him as the chase
was making its way through Starke..
Capt. Smith said that it appeared
that none of those shots struck Estes,


however.
After evading the
roadblock, Estes continued
to flee from officers and
turned south on U.S. 301,
reaching 80-85 mph at
various times during the
chase.
Capt. Smith said Estes
turned off U.S. 301 onto
C.R. 225 at The Oasis
Lounge and fled into
Alachua County..
Deputies from the
Alachua County Sheriff's
Office joined the pursuit


and set up roadblocks in
various areas. They also had a helicopter
responding to the incident.
Just before Estes reached the
intersection of C.R. 225 and C.R. 1475
in Alachua County, Capt. Smith 'said
he again swerved directly at a vehicle


that contained a driver and Capt. Eddie
Boatwright as passenger. Boatwright
fired on Estes' vehicle and Estes lost
control, ran off the road into the ditch
and struck a culvert, launching his
vehicle some 15-20 feet into the air.
The vehicle flipped and and came to
rest near the intersection of the road.
Estes was pronounced dead at the
scene by Bradforid County emergency
medical personnel.
Alachua County Sheriff's, Office
deputies said that Estes and his vehicle
matched the description of a suspect
wanted for another robbery at an
Alachua County store earlier on the
same day.
Capt. Smith said Estes' criminal
history is "very extensive and violent."
It includes convictions on two different
murder charges, burglary, and, battery
on a law enforcement officer.


Traffic cameras


under consideration


BY MARK. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

Starke Police Chief Jeff Johnson has
been speaking with vendors of cameras
that will photograph drivers who violate
laws at signalized intersections.
Rumors of statewide legislation that
would prevent cities from establishing
their own traffic code violations
and fines are behind the push to get
something in place here before July.
Johnson, who was approached by two
camera vendors at a recent conference,
said if the legislation passes, law
enforcement agencies would be requi red
to enforce the state's code and system
of fines, sending that money to the state
first before the revenue trickles down to
the local level.
Local lawv enforcement leaders,
however, have been frustrated in recent
years that less and less of that money is
being returned. More is being kept by
the state to fund its expenses, and the
state just raised fines even higher to
make up for a revenue shortfall. .
Some areas have passed local
ordinances to collect fines on traffic,
violations, allowing them to keep most
of the revenue generated. Hence the
rumored move by state legislators to
put an end to local traffic ordinances in
favor of the state's uniform traffic code,
although Johnson said he hasn't seen
that legislative proposal on paper.
"You're not going to be able to do it
through a municipality, you're going to


have to go through the state," Johnson
said.
But he said if the city acts now to
establish its own local penalties for red
light runners, it would have grandfather
status and .be able to collect those fines
for five years even if the legislation
passes.
Vendors primarily install the camera
equipment for free. They also monitor
the cameras, mail the citations and
process payments, earning a percentage
on the amount collected.
Some offer even more, including a
monitoring system that seeks out tag
numbers when, for example, a child
has been abducted. If the vehicle
involved passes through a monitored
intersection, Johnson said authorities
could be notified within 15 seconds.
"It takes a picture of the person inside
the car and the tag," Johnson said.
Around 30 cities in the state
have installed traffic light cameras,
including Orlando, Apopka and Gulf
Breeze. Some cities, though, have held
off because of legal concerns and the
threat of being sued.
There have been impediments to
the state approving the use of red light
cameras. According to some, because
running the red light is a moving
violation under state law, an officer
must actually witness the crime in order
to issue a ticket.
Because the state bans these traffic

A man killed his

authorities said, after they
responded to a call for
help at a residence on the i
west end of Union County '.
on Feb. 1.
Just after midnight on ,.
Sunday, deputies with the .
Union County Sheriff's ',',
Office responded to a 911
call at a residence on NW*
13811 Terrace. A frantic Sharoi
17-year-old female caller
stated that her stepfather
had just shot her mother.
Deputies arrived on
the scene within minutes-
and found Sharon Lanette ....w
Bailey, 38, lying in her
front yard, dead from an
apparent gunshot wound ,
to the head. It is believed ,
that she and her daughter
had been fleeing from her
husband at'the time she
was shot. It is alleged that Robe
the daughter ran inside
the home and hid before
escaping out a backdoor and running to

a neighbor's house for help.
Inside the home, investigators found
the husband, Robert Bailey, 37, dead
from a fatal gunshot
wound with a 12-gauge
shotgun Iling ne\l to his
o body.
Major Garry Seay
*W stated that the homicide
and apparent suicide were
likely a result of recent
domestic disputes in the
household that may have
involved Sharon Bailey's
daughter, who lived with
Bailey the couple.
Seay said deputies
had been called to the
home the week before
regarding allegations of
domestic violence. The
Department of Children
and Families had visited
the residence on the day
of the shootings. Seay said
he conducted an interview
with Sharon Bailey's
daughter on Monday and
the investigation into the
t Bailey events that. led up to the
shootings still continues.

Money talk of legislative delegation meeting


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

When members of the local legislative
delegation-Sen. Steve Oelrich and
Reps. Janet Adkins and Charles E.
Van Zant-met in Bradford County
last week, they heard from a room full
of concerned individuals, most with
money on their minds.
Many who spoke were struggling
with cuts in state funding and were
fearful the worst was yet to come. Others
suggested ways in which legislators
could help local governments and
agencies cope with funding shortages.
Some just wanted assurance no more
harm would be done.

The disabled.
David Dodge and a group from The
Arc of Bradford County came to speak
on behalf of the mentally and physically
disabled.
"I know that times are tough. I know
that the tooth fairy doesn't bring money
to Tallahassee, but a certain amount
of government spending has to be
maintained,especially for those who are
of critical need," Dodge said, admitting

Charles E. Van Zant.


his position might seem strange coming
from someone who, like the members
of the delegation, is a Republican.
The, disabled have been coping with
funding cuts long before there was an
economic crisis, Dodge said. When


deciding where to cut back he asked the
legislators to be aware of where need
really lies.
Dodge was joined by Bradford Arc
Director Sherry Ruszkowski,who called
the governor's line item veto of deeper


cuts to the disabled a glimmer of hope.
She said agencies like hers around the
state are desperately trying to salvage
benefits for people with disabilities.

Smith discusses


transition with


commission


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

From examining existing
contracts and learning about the
budget to making plans for the
future. Sheriff Gordon Smith
gave (he county commission a
brief report on his transition last
month.
Smith said the other
constitutional officers have
been nothing but helpful in his
transition from police department
to the sheriff's office, and wanted
to publicly thank all of those who
have been of assistance.-
Smith discussed costs he's
trying to cut as well as some
things he'd like to change up.
By telling vendors and service
providers he would look to do
business elsewhere, Smith said
he's been able to negotiate better
prices, lowering the cost of phone
Bills, for example, from 18-24
percent.
Speaking further of cost
cutting measures, he said he was
working with Clay Electric on
an arrangement that would keep
deputies patrolling the south end
of the county from having to
return to Starke to fuel up.
"Driving 30 minutes to get
fuel, 30 minutes back, you burn
-a quarter-tank of gas to get there
and back," said the sheriff.
He's also putting inmate work
crews in stripes, green and white
to be specific.
"I want to be able to look
around and know which inmates
are supposed to be in jail and
which are supposed to be out
working doing something,"
Smith said.
Smithsaid he's heardobjections


from inmates, but .they admit
they'd rather be out working than
sitting behind bars all day.
"If you don't want to \wear
them, don't go to jail and you
won't be embarrassed," Smith
said.
More effective use of that labor
is also planned in the next budget
year, according to the sheri.ff.
He said he and his officers want
to create a two- or three-day-a-
week work squad for each county
commission district. There are
plenty of inmates, he said, so he
and his officers are working on
scheduling part-timers to oversee
those squads.
"Our county should be the
cleanest," Smith said. "We've
got more inmates per capital than
anybody, and there's no excuse
for a dirty street."
Future projects include better
patrol of distant areas of the
county, including the Brooker
area, as well as the Keystone
Heights and Melrose area, he
said.
"We're, trying to work some
number games there and still
maintain equal coverage. "That's
what it's all about, giving
somebody the same coverage,"
Smith said.
Command staff is even using
GPS technology to track deputies
and make sure they are where
they're supposed to be.
The city of Starke has a police
department so county sheriff's
deputies need to be patrolling
rural areas, he added.
He also hopes to restore some
revenue to the jail by negotiating
with the U.S. Marshals to house
out-of-county inmates again.

Sheriff asks for career service repeal


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

Most approaching the county's
legislative delegation last week
wanted more money or wanted
money that had been taken away
restored. Sheriff Gordon Smith,
on the other hand, wanted. a
change in law.
Smith asked the delegation
to support repealing the career
service legislation for sheriff's
office employees that Bob Milner
was able to secure in his final
year before retirement.
The legislation creates an
appeals process for sheriff's
office employees who the
sheriff has decided to suspend
or terminate. Employees attain
career service status following
their probationary first year of
employment..
A career service employee
could only be suspended. or
dismissed for cause after
receiving written notice of the
proposed action and being given
the opportunity to respond to
the reasons for the suspension or
dismissal unless the sheriff sees

immediate hazard in continued
employment. In either case, the
employee would be entitled to
appeal the decision to a career
service appeals board.
The sheriff still retains the
right of final determination,
but career service status does
complicate the process.
Milner asked the prior
legislative delegation to support
the change. Sen. Steve Oelrich
and former Rep. Aaron Bean each
agreed to sponsor the bill. Smith
has asked the new delegation,
which includes Oelrich and
Reps. Ja-net Adkins and Charles
E. Van Zant, to get\the legislation
repealed.
Smith said he is pro-employee
and offered as proof the fact that
officers voted to disband their
union when he was Starke police
chief. He said the people have
also given him the responsibility
to protect the safety of the
community and the authority t6
make the changes necessary to
do so.
Smith asked for a vote .of
the new delegation to support
repealing the bill at the state


level,adding he would bring back
a "nonpolitical" bill next year
that truly protects employees.
"The one now is not genuine
or sincere," Smith said. He called
it "smoke and mirrors" the way
,it creates an appeals process but
leaves ultimate authority with the
sheriff.
While he said it hadn't
impeded what he's wanted to
accomplish during the recent
transition, Smith said it could
create problems down the line.
"My thing is to come at a later
date, bring a genuine bill back
that gives genuine protections
to employees at certain levels,"
Smith said.
Adkins said she had already
filed language in the House at
Smith's request. The delegation
as a whole voted in favor of
the repeal, although as Oelrich
pointed out, there is no guarantee
the new request will "make it
through the system."
Smith said there are a number
of protections i.n place for
employees in the state, including
the officers' bill of rights.

for the upcoming Bradford Fest
Boots-N-BBQ contest.
Sassy is a giant pink cartoon
pig, and Boot 'n BBQ is a giant

Janet Adkins and Charles E. Van
Zant-to approve a proclamation
in support of the contest, which
they gladly did.
Barbecuers compete for prize
money ($10,000) as well as points


they take with them into other
competitions. Professionally
sanctioned by the Florida
Barbecue Association, the Boots

Amateurs compete against
other amateurs and there will

in recognition of the county's
history with the berry.
Admission is $3 and teams will
also be raising money by selling
their barbecue and splitting the
proceeds with the college.
Clemons said Santa Fe wanted
to create an event the community
could get behind and make
successful, as well as one that
would bring visitors into the
county. The contest has a higher
aim as well-to raise scholarship,
money so, students can attend'

County residents.
"You don't have to be 18. You
can be 48 and still apply for these
scholarships," Clemons said.
In addition to the barbecue,
there will be other family friendly
events going on, including events
to promote literacy.

City approves contracts on sewer plant


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor


The city commission approved
a recommendation from its en-
gineer to award contract for up-'
grades to its sewer plant worth
almost $1.6 million.
The Department of Environ-
mental Protection has agreed to
fund the upgrades in sewage treat-
ment. That money will come later
this year. In the meantime, the
city has borrowed funds through
Florida Rural Water Association.
Engineer Gary Sneddon of
Stone, Joca and Associates said
three companies responded to the
two-part request for proposals, but
only one responded to both parts.
The first part was the site work
needed, and the second part was
the building and biosolids treat-
ment system.
The site work was awarded to
Sawcross Inc. for $236,000. Saw-
cross has worked with the city be-
fore on the upgrade.
Revered Group of America
LLC was awarded the contract for
the building and treatment sys-
tem, which will cost the city near-
ly $1.35 million: Its subcontractor,
BCR Environmental constructs
and sold the city on the Bio-Chem
Neutralizer treatment system.
The system treats wastewa-
ter and produces a higher class
of biosolids than is produced by
the existing wastewater treatment
process. The odor-free biosolids
are pathogen free and can be used
as fertilizer. In addition to envi-
ronmental benefits, the city will
avoid spending tens of thousands


of dollars each year on shipping
processed sewage to a landfill for
disposal.
BCE reps also said the city
would realize reduced,'energy and
labor costs.
The city will save some of
the money (around $80',000) ap-
proved in the second contract by


direct purchasing goods to avoid
paying sales tax.
The project will proceed pend-
ing concurrence by DEP on the
contract awards. Also, according
to Sneddon, the city and BCE
must" work out an agreement for.
the long-term operation and use'
of the Bio-Chem system.

Red Dog Musicfest 2009
,sponsored by Hamptoh Veterans
Memorial,;Fund *and Red Dog


Curtis White, Minister of
the Church of Christ in
Lawtey, would like to say
greetings to all of
Bradford County in
Christian Love.
Today I would like to deal
with the question that
many religious people are
asking today and that is,
"Are all the different
churches from God?" And
the answer is a resounding
NO. The Bible declares
that there is but one
church (Eph 4:4).

If you are just honest with yourself, just look
around right here in Bradford 'County on Sunday
mornings and you will see division. Division
among the races and religious doctrines, (or
teachings). Would you say that this is the Will of
God, or the Will of Man? The Bible tells us in I
Cor 14:33 that God is not the author of
confusion. When men establish or invent their
own doctrines, it brings about nothing but
confusion as to where many honest'people don't
know what to believe. My friends, if there's ever
going to be unity, we must all stay with the Word
of God and preach the same thing (1 Cor 1:10).
The church that you are a member of where
did it originate from? Who is it's founder? Is it
mentioned by the Apostles? Do you worship
according to New Testament teachings?
The Lord founded his church and 'gave it to
the world centuries before Catholicism, Baptist,
Methodism, Mormonism, Jehovah's Witnesses,
Pentecostalism, and Seventh Day Adventism and
others were ever known.
The Lord's church is none of these, neither is
it denominational in any sense!
Denominationalism divides people; promotes
sectarian strife, competition and rivalry; it
contradicts the plain teaching of the Bible; and
goes. contrary to our Savior's prayer for unity
(John 17:20-21).
Some men will tell you (1) attend the church
of your choice; (2) We all believe in the same
God; (3) All churches belong to Christ; (4) It
doesn't matter so long as your heart is right; (5)
The church is in your heart; or (6) Just ask the
Lord to come into your heart and your life and
be your personal Savior.

Now I want to ask you an honest
question...Where are any of these sayings in the


Saloon will take place Friday

Curtis L. White, minister
Holy ,
Scripture? NO WHERE!
The Bible says in I Cor 4:6 that we should not
think of man above that which is written.
Saul was a man that was honest, sincere, and
religious, but yet in his condition he.was lost
(Acts 26: 1-11). As we know he was later added
to the Body of Christ. But what did Saul do?
Well he heard the gospel of Jesus Christ, (not a
perverted gospel, but the truth). He believed
what he heard, repented of his sins, and was
Baptized for the remission of sins. Question;
what did your Baptism make you? Did it make
you a Christian? Or did you become a member
of a man-made institution? Paul said that, "We
must prove all things." (I Thess 5:21).
Now Mr. White, how can I know if I am or not
a member of the church that was purchased by
Christ? Paul said in II Cor: 13:5 to examine
yourselves, whether y- be in the faith;
(Remember now, that there is only one true faith,
Eph. 4:5) Paul said to prove your own selves.
The term, "prove" means to test.
Therefore in order to prove your own self to
be right religiously one must first test his or
herself religiously. Question: How does one test
their religious beliefs?
Answer: One can only test his or her religious
beliefs with the Word of God.
Therefore, when one takes a spiritual analysis,
which outlines what one has already believed in
light of what Christ has actually said, one would
have just tested their religious beliefs with the
Word of God.
In particular, one should examine what Christ
'has said about the subject of...(1) the church, (2)
how to become a member of the church, (3)
Baptism, (4) the Holy Spirit, (5) Salvation, (6)
the acts of worship within the church.
The Church at Lawtey awaits your visit, a
Church for All People, of All Races! May the
God of Heaven bless you, please feel free to
write me at Lawtey Church of Christ, P.O. Box

Bradford Middle School student Joshua Hayes was chosen to attend the presidential
inauguration.


Bradford Middle School student

gets opportunity of a lifetime


BY TERESA STONE IRWIN
Times Staff Writer

When Joshua Hayes was
a fifth-grade student in
Bradford County, his teacher
recognized him as a student who
demonstrated leadership potential
and nominated him to participate
in the National Young Leaders
Program, a program offered
by the Congressional Youth
Leadership Council (CYLC).
Since that time, CYLC has
stayed in contact with Hayes,
12, who is now a seventh-grader
at Bradford Middle School.
Hayes is also a member of the
council's alumni and was invited
to attend a week of activities in
Washington D.C. leading up to
the inauguration of President
Barack Obama and Vice President
Joe Biden.
Sixth- and seventh-grade
school students across the nation
were chosen for the event because

Service will sponsor a workshop
on backyard birding and butterfly
landscapes at the Bradford. County.
Public Library Thursday, Feb. 12,
from 3 p.m. until 7:30 p.m.
Sessions covering bird
identification, attracting birds to your
landscape, how to use binoculars for
birding, beginning and advanced
butterfly landscaping techniques,
and using trees to attract butterflies
will be offered.
Speakers include biologist and
Master Gardener Barbara Searcy,
Shady Oak Butterfly Farm expert
Edith Smith and Bradford County
Extension agent Jim DeValerio.
Bradford County Forester Nicole
Howard will be giving away trees'

prior to the workshop in front of the
library. A few additional butterfly
landscape trees will be awarded as.
random door prizes at the end of the
program.
Jackie Host, president of Garden
Clubs of the Lakes, will be there to
discuss the possibility of starting a
Garden Club of Starke.
Bird and nature fans throughout
North America are invited to join

maturity, academic excellence
and leadership potential.
The week-long schedule of
events included meetings with
the former secretary of state and
founder of America's Promise
Alliance General Colin Powell
(Ret.), and former Vice President
Al Gore. Most exciting to Hayes,
though, was listening to Erik
Weihenmayer, the only blind
person who has ever climbed to
the top of the Seven Summits-
the highest mountains on every
continent-including guiding
blind Tibetan teenagers to 21,500
feet on the north side of Mt.
Everest.
Along with his group, Hayes
visitedtheSmithsonian Institution
and other historic monuments on
the National Mall, viewed the
inaugural parade oyve lunch at
the historic Marriott Wardman
Park Hotel and attended the Gala
Inaugural Ball.

Participants count birds and report

"The Great Backyard Bird Count
benefits both birds and people," said
Audubon Education Vice President
Judy Braus. "It's a great example
of citizen science: Anyone who
can identify even a few species
can contribute to the body of
knowledge that is used to inform
conservation efforts to protect birds
and biodiversity. Families, teachers.
children and all those who take part
in GBBC get a chance to improve
their observation skills, enjoy nature

Anyone can take part-from
novice bird watchers to experts-by
counting birds for as little as 15
minutes (or as long as they wish) on,
one or more days of the event and
reporting their sightings online at
wwiv.birdcount.org. Participants can

Haves said the best part of the
trip was meeting new friends
who share the same interests he
does. His' biggest bummer, he
said, was losing his cell phone at
the airport on the way home.
"I got to hang oLut with some
of the best kids I've ever met,
kids I have a lot in common
with. I collected a bunch of'
phone numbers and gave them
my number, but without the cell
phone, I can't ever keep in touch
with them."
Bradford Middle School
guidance counselor Monica
Kadlec said that, all in all., Hayes
is a very well rounded young
man. "You can have a mature
conversation with him about
what's going on in the world,
then have him switch right into
talking about something many

thousands of miles away. Additional
online resources include tips to help
identify birds, a photo gallery and
special materials for educators.
The data these citizeni scientists"
collect helps researchers understand
bird population trends, information
that 'is critical for' effective
conservation. Their efforts enable
everyone to see what would otherwise
be impossible: a comprehensive'
,picture If ,.ofl-v!'re birds arc in late
winter and how their numbers and
distribution compare with previous
years. In 2008, participants submitted
more than 85,000 checklists.
The Great Backyard Bird Count
is made possible, in part, by support
from Wild Birds Unlimited.
Landscaping for butterflies is easy
and can add a lot of color to your
yard from both the flowers and the
butterflies. Butterfly landscapes are
rewarding because they provide
many hours of entertainment for
gardeners and hobbyists of all ages.
Because of her vast experience in
farming butterflies and her love of
the subject, Smith brings a lot of
experience arid enthusiasm when
she teaches on this subject, so come
prepared to be entertained as well as
to learn something new.

Secondhand

smoke: How

to protect

your kids
Studies show that a person
breathing secondhand smoke
is exposed to some of the same.
cancer causing agents as the
person who smokes.
Sadly, children are powerless
to protect themselves from the'
dangers of secondhand smoke.
But everyone each can play an"
important role in protecting.
them from secondhand smoke
exposure.
.* Make your home and vehicle
smoke-free at all times. If there
are smokers in your family, they
should always go outside to
smoke. Opening a window is not
enough.
Make sure your children's
day care centers and schools are
100 percent smoke- and tobacco-
free.
.Insist that no one smodkc "22
around your children."
Choose smoke-free places
for family activities.
And the.single best step you
can take to protect your family's
health and your own is to quit
smoking. Quitting smoking will
also reduce the chance that your
children will grove' up to become
smokers themselves.
While quitting smoking may
be difficult, there are a number.
of proven resources available to
help including free counseling
and a range of FDA-approved
medications. To receive free
counseling to help you quit,
please call toll-free (877) 822-
6669. For more information on
a free community cessation class

Alonitor Editor
The annual Rotary soccer tournament
\ as held at Twin Lakes Park last Saturday,
playing to somewhere between 800 and
1.200 soccer moms, dads, players, family
members and vendors.
Rotary President Harold Gilstrap noticed
that the temperature was 29 degrees when
he left-home, and about 31 degrees when
registration began. By mid-morning and
all afternoon, though, the weather was
terrific. L
The tournament is a community effort.
Trevor Waters, Duane Patterson and the
Keystone Youth Soccer Club always play
a major role in scheduling and setup. Doug
Wise and TruValue Hardware donated $150
worth of materials. Johnny's Barbecue
Restaurant donated chili and Sandi's
Pizza chipped in with some pies.
Even though no longer a Rotarian,
Tom Shrewsbury showed up with his V
grill to cook 250 hamburgers and 250 F
hot dogs. A group of Keystone Heights 0so
High School students, most of them in the visitor
Rotary's Interact Club, helped out at the A
concession stand. A few Rotary wives, morn
, sons and daughters also showed up to mor
help out during the day. Tom

"...went OK. We sold out of all the candy hal
at the concession stand. Last year we had the b

added that the event went on until 6 p.m. is wh

and shut down around 3 p.m. it's
Willis said only 76 teams showed up,
the smallest number in the last three
years.
"That could have been due .to the
timing," he said. ""District games were .held the
night before. It could have been due to the
economy as well."
Angie Murphy, on staff at the 3v3 Challenge,
said she would have been happier with a few
more volunteers on staff and warmer weather, but
added, "It's a good facility. Everyone seems to
enjoy corning here."
Gilstrap was happy that all the park's bathrooms
worked. It was the first year since the park opened
that bathrooms didn't 'present a problem for the'
tournament.
For the first time this year, the Rotary charged

for in-park parking.
The inside lot can hold upwards of 500 cars.
Waters said that a $5 parking fee is common at
comparable soccer tournaments elsewhere.
"Plus in some places you have to walk a mile
to get to the field, once you've paid to park," he
added.
Not all the visitors were happy about the new
charge. Parking was free along Twin Lakes Road.
Willis said some who complained hadn't realized
the money would go to local charities.
"Next year we'll make sure people know ahead
of time where the money goes," he said.

IPark of Palms opens spring


conference, music series


At Little Rain Lake Park last Saturday, baseball dads (1-r) Dale Davenport, Frank
Velazquez and Mitch Dicks waited for prospective KRA players. Dicks said they
are expecting around 75 to sign up and already have about 35. Registration runs
through March 1.


KRA registering through March 1


BY JAMES WILLIAMS
*: Monitor Editor

The Keystone Recreation
Association is registering for
the baseball, softball and T-ball
season each Saturday, 9 a.m. to
noon, now through March 1.
Registration is held in the
KRA clubhouse at Little Rain
take Park, off S.R. 21 north.
Skills and evaluation will be
held Saturday, Feb. 14; practice
begins Feb. 16 and opening


day is March 14. Fees are $75
per player, which includes the
uniform. Family discounts are
available for those with three or
more players.

KRA Vice President Mitch
Dicks said the group had been
working with Sherman Phillips
of Clay Electric Cooperative
and he thought KRA had their
problem with high light bills
solved. The cooperative began
to waive the demand fee which


brought the bill down to a
dollar figure the organization
could handle.
Dicks, said this year KRA
will also feature adult co-ed
softball. Registration runs
through March 1. Registration
fees are $250 per team. Games
begin March I and run through
May 30. Players must be 16
years of age or older.

The Park of the Palms' 2009
ministerial conference and
concert series got off to a good
start Saturday and will run
through late March.
Conference- speakers are
brought in for a week of Bible
study and prayer, with an out-
of-town trip on Fridays. Then
a musical artist performs on
Saturday night to close out the
week.
Last Saturday night, Southern
gospel songwriter Ray Holliday
gave a short but impressive
concert for about 60 park seniors
hale enough, to brave the cold,
plus a few other visitors of
various ages.
Before the concert, there was a
dinner at the park's Weir dining
hall, as there will be before the
concert each Saturday night for
the next six weeks.
Dinners and concerts are open
to the public at large. Concerts
are free, though a love offering
is taken. Dinners are $10 per
person plus tax; reservations
must be made in advance.
Bob Sabo Jr. is back and the
park has him. He looks great,
by the way, younger and rested
and less frazzled than during
his last days at his Keystone
Heights Italian restaurant, which
closed last year. And he looked
comfortable in the Park of the
Palms kitchen.
For the music series, Agnes
Dixon and other park staff have
assembled a roster of first-
time artists plus some favorites
returning from years past.

This kid-friendly 'dental van stops at Keystone Heights Elementary School several
times each year.


Special program provides dental care


- BY JAMES WILLIAMS
Monitor Editor

Once every four weeks, a
big van painted with a jungle
scene shows up at Keystone
Heights Elementary School.
On the days the van is there,
every 30 minutes or so a
student disappears inside.
When they come out they are
carrying a small bag and their
smiles are bigger and prettier
than ever. The van dispenses
dental care.

The Baker County Alliance
Rendering Excellent 'Smiles,
a children's dental bus, parks
aft Clay County schools the
first and second week of
every month, and appears at
Keystone Elementary every
third month.
? It also appears at the
Bradford County Health
Department during the fourth


week of every month and in
Union County on the third
week'of each month.
Robin White, who runs
the nurses' clinic at KHES,
guesses that about 40 students
from the elementary school
use the van.
While on the. campus, the
van also takes students from
Keystone Heights High.School
and McRae Elementary School
as well.
Parents of McRae students
drive their children in for
appointments. Students at the
high school can get permission
from parents to walk over to
,be seen.
"They don't do braces,"
White said, "but I have seen
them take two or three visits
before special needs 'students
are comfortable enough to
allow them to take x-rays or
even do a filling. They have
taken students without medical

A dentist, a hygienist and

The children love going,
White said, "I've never taken
one out that pitched a fit'. They
are made to feel. welcome and
.safe. They are told what the
care providers are going to do.
There are no surprises."

Parents sign a form stating
that they have permission to
provide whatever services are
needed. Students get a parent
notification form at each visit,
letting families know what
services were' provided that
day. If a parent wants to know
what time. their child will be

dental exams and x-rays,
cleaning, sealants, fillings and

In Clay County, the van
will show up again the second

Children enter the program
through school nurse referrals
as well as parental applications.
Parents must register their
.children in advance, providing
basic information and the

Holliday has

Despite the
fact that the
retired Brethren
at the Park
are--a bit more
theologically
demure and
sedate than, say,
contemporary
Baptists and
Church of God
fundamentalists,
they were
familiar with
Holliday's genre
and clapped and
smiled and sang
along, especially John
on "Leaning on
the Everlasting
Arms."
Holliday said he was born
in Mt. Olive, Ark., but wasn't
sure his hometown was there
anymore.
"We were so far out in the
woods, nobody lived behind us,"
he told the crowd.
His rendition of "I'll Fly Away"

program


Kendal Wright with adoptive parent Tana Reynolds.


Florida Agriculture
Commissioner Charles H.
Bronson has unveiled a new
program to increase the amount
of locally grown produce
available in Florida schools.
The Farm to School program
is designed to help school
district food service officials
find local farmers who want to
sell fresh produce directly to
schools.
"Every year, Florida schools
spend millions of'dollars for
fresh produce," Bronson said.
"The Florida Farm to School
program is intended to keep


more of those dollars within
the state. It also promotes
healthy eating habits among
students and assists small local
farmers."
Local farmers can visit
the Web site vwwwv.florida-
agriculture.com/FarmToSchool
and locate the Union County
school district to begin
participating in the program.
For more information,contact
the district's food service
director, Betsy Whitehead at
(386) 496-2045, ext. 234, or by
mailing her at whiteheadb@
union.k12.fl.us.

Newspapers Connect Communities


Strong communities are all about strong relationships and connections;
citizens and their government; citizens and community businesses; local
government and local businesses; citizens and local, social cultural
institutions. Nothing facilitates or creates those relationships and
connections like America's community newspapers. In cities and towns
served by a community newspaper of 25,000 circulation or less, 86 percent
of the population read a community newspaper each week. No other media
has that kind of reach into and throughout those communities.
This is among the findings of the 2008 research conducted for the. National
Newspaper association by the Reynolds Journalism Institute at the Missouri
School of Journalism at the University. of Missouri. The findings are
consistent with two earlier research efforts by NNA and RJI's Center for
Advanced Social Research.
The connections between community newspapers and their readers, and
the resulting connection of those readers to local advertisers, remains strong
in communities across America. To many readers, the weekly advertisements
are a form of news, weekly specials or sales, the launch of new businesses
and services, the introduction of new products, and even a barometer of the
economic health and vitality of the community.

Along Main Street Across The Nation
* 79 percent of adults 18 and older read the classified ads.
* 73 percent read the grocery or supermarket advertisements and/or inserts.
* Half rely most on their community newspaper for grocery shopping
information. That's twice that of the next most relied source: In-store
promotions. And 10 times more than the third most relied upon source:
Direct mail.
* 72 percent of community newspaper readers read the hardware and home
improvement advertisements.
* About 28 percent rely most on their community newspaper for home
improvement shopping information. That's about 50 percent more than the
next most relied upon source: In-store promotions. And three times more
than the third most relied upon source: The Internet.
* 66 percent of community newspaper readers read the department store ads.
* 65 percent of community newspapers readers read the discount store ads.
* 62 percent of community newspaper readers read the public notice ads.
* 81 percent believe government should be required to publish public notices
in the local newspaper:
About 78 percent of iHll adults said they rarely or never use the radio to
make purchasing decisions; 69 percent said they rarely or never use direct
mail to make purchasing decisions; 59 percent say they rarely or never use
TV to make purchasing decisions; 58 percent said they rarely or never use
the Yellow Pages for buying decisions; 41 percent said they rarely or never
use the Internet for buying decisions.
However, 71 percent found newspaper ads helpful in making purchasing
decisions. That compares with almost 50 percent in 2007 and 41 percent in
2005.
"It's clear that newspapers provide a strong connection between local
readers and local businesses and services," says John Stevenson, NNA


president and publisher of the Randolph Leader in Roanoke, AL.
This year's survey asked questions that had been asked in a similar
Canadian study.
About 79 percent of respondents said they would rather look through
newspaper ads than watch ads on TV. This compares to 61 percent in the
Canadian survey.
Three-quarters of adults said they would rather look through newspaper
ads than view ads on the Internet.
A little more than 70 percent somewhat-to-strongly agree that they go
looking for and through newspaper ads. This is comparable to the
Canadian response.
Nearly 70 percent somewhat-strongly agree that they enjoy reading
advertising in their local paper. This compares to 66 percent in the
Canadian survey.
"Buyers read newspapers." said Brian Steffens, NNA's executive director,
"and our research shows there is no stronger media for connecting a
community, its people, government and economic vibrancy."
* About 78 percent of those surveyed said they planned to purchase health
or medical products or services in the next year.
* 73 percent plan to buy women's clothing.
* 60 percent plan to buy men's clothing.
* 58 percent plan to purchase "travel," air, hotel, cruise, rental car, etc.
* 52 percent plan to purchase lawn and garden supplies or services.
* 41 percent plan to buy electronics, Newspapers and the Internet were tied
as the most relied upon source for electronics shopping information.
* Nearly 35 percent plan to buy cell phones or cell phone service.
Newspapers and the Internet were tied, right behind in-store promotion, as
the most relied upon source for cell phone shopping information.
* 34 percent plan to buy financial or insurance products or services.
* 25 percent plan to buy furniture.
* 28 percent rely most on their community newspaper for information for
home furniture shopping. That's about 4 percent more than the second
most relied-upon source: In-store promotions; and more than twice that of
the third most.relied upon source: The Internet.
* 16 percent plan to buy appliances.
* 26 percent rely most on their community newspaper for information for
major appliance purchase, 7 percent more than the next most relied upon
source: In-store information and the Internet (tie); and four times more
than the fourth most relied upon source, magazines.
* 11 percent plan to buy a used vehicle.
* 9 percent plan to buy a new vehicle.
* Readers rely equally on newspapers, dealerships and the Internet for
information for new car purchases (about 18 percent each).
"That's a solid shopping list for Main Street America." Stevenson said,
"And community newspapers help both buyers and' sellers."

MONEY
Continued from Page 1A


One example, she said, was a
family with a very disabled son
that was notified they would
no longer be receiving money
to. purchase needed items like
adult diapers though they were
trying their best to take care for
their son at home. Individuals in
wheel chairs who need assistance
with dressing themselves and
other tasks are being forced to
choose between paying for their
assistance or giving up their jobs
where they earn money to help
support themselves. Still others,
Ruszkowski said, are giving up
medical services like dentistry.
She said Bradford Arc has
looked for grants, corporate
sponsorships and even opened
a thrift store in order to help
support itself, but the state
funding cuts are too deep..
With Ruszkowski was Arc
consumer Kathy Leigh who lives
on her own but relies on the funds
she receives to help her be self-
sufficient. A lot of her friends do
as well, she said.
"We've all had to make choices
this year between giving up
things we did have," said Leigh.
She asked legislators to look
at where too much money is
being spent, then use, some of
that money to help support the
disabled.
Oelrich asked how the disabled
lived prior to agencies like Arc,
and Ruszkowski said they often
lived in state-run institutional
settings.

Education
School Board Member David
Smith bent the ears of legislators,
presenting several ideas he would
like the state to consider that he
feels would better allow school
districts to function with smaller
and smaller budgets.
Smith said the district is in
dire straits, with funding levels
cut back to 2005 levels.
"We're to the bare bottom in
dollars that we can cut without
affecting our children," he said.
First he asked that school
districts not be obliged to meet
class size requirements as set
forth in the amendment approved
by voters in 2002. Next year,
schools will be required to
meet. those standards in every
classroom instead of using an
average of all the classes in the
school.
That could cost the district if,
for example, one fourth-grader is
added to a particular school and
the grade must then be to be split
into two classes. The amendment
is going to require districts
to build classrooms and add
teachers at a time when school
budgets are being cut.
Adkins said she was filing a bill
in the House to address class size
reduction. A former school board
member, she said she supported
giving schools flexibility in
meeting those standards.
Smith's next suggestion was
not something the delegation was
already poised to act on. Instead
of a four-day school week, which
he said many are not going to
support, Smith now wants the
state to allow schools to'lengthen


Monday though Friday school
days by an hour.
He said the six-days-in-five
plan would allow students and
teachers to accomplish more in
a fewer number of days. That
would create a week or more
of additional vacation time
between grading periods to avoid
shortening the traditional school
year. but also significantly reduce
costs for transportation, utilities
and other areas.
Adkins said a similar request
was made in Union County.
Smith also asked legislators
to look at suspending certain
requirements during difficult
economic times in order to save
money. He said the one that
immediately came to mind was
FCAT testing. He suggested next
year's tests be limited to only
third and 10'h graders.
Tammy,Winkler. Kaihy Hobbs
and Bill McRae of Southside
Elementary told ,legislators that
local school employees were
willing to go out on a limb and
try new ideas like those suggested
in order to save money and avoid
losing teachers.
McRae called the outlook for
next year alarming. At a school'
where two-thirds of the.students
qualify for free or reduced-price
lunches, many find themselves
teetering between academic
success and failure, he said.
"Any reduction in staff at this'
particular point is going to put
these children dramatically at
risk," said McRae.
Oelrich said everyone wants
to be held harmless, but if
legislators do that for one group,
it just means somebody else has
to "take it on the chin."
"I'm just telling you, this is not
a pretty picture. The money is
not there," he said.
Since they said they would
be willing to go the extra mile
to ensure jobs would not be
lost, Oelrich asked if that meant
working one day a week for free.
Wilkerson said they've already
worked many days without pay
and she would be willing to do
so again to save jobs.
With two. children .in public
'schools, Adkins said she was
moved by the passion displayed
for education, but said there.
were too many unknowns for the
legislators present to be able to
make promises.
Also among education requests,
. Steve Mountain of the Early
Learning Coalition asked for
support for programs that benefit
-children of low-income working
parents or parents transitioning
from welfare to work and children-
who are under protective custody
in the Department of Children
and Families.
He said early learning has
had no meaningful increase in
funding in 10 years, although
the number of children served
has increased. In- fact, by 1999
dollars, Mountain said the Early
Learning Coalition is receiving
just 78 cents for every dollar it
once received.
What's more, Mountain said if
- state funding continues to decline,
the coalition would begin to lose
federal dollars as well.
"At a time when budgets need
to be cut, not all programs are
equal," he said.
Cuts in funding mean

Joshua Adkins and Angela Rix meet Rep. Janet Adkins.


voluntary pre-K programs will
be assigning more students per
teacher, which Mountain said
reduces the efficacy of sending
children to pre-K.

Taxes
Property Appraiser Jimmy
Alvarez said for years appraisers
received pressure from
Tallahassee to raise property
values for revenue purposes. In
recent years, though, legislators
hav4 treated county appraisers
as if they were wrong in valuing
property so highly.
Not only have legislators
imposed their own restrictions on
local government tax collection,
voters have also had a hand in
trying to reduce property taxes.
Alvarez asked the delegation
to consider waiting a while
before taking any further action
on property taxes. According to
him, time is needed to adjust to
recent changes and weigh their
full impact.
Holding a list of new
requirements placed on county
property appraisers, including
the recording of additional
information and .exemptions
-that are difficult to administer,
Alvarez said the extra work
.equates to more employee hours
and expense.
"This is not a good to be adding
anything to do with the cost of
local government," he said.
He asked the legislators to be
mindful of the demands of'the
changes already put in place and
to "let things settle" beforeacting
further.
Van Zant asked for a letter
outlining the hardships being
faced by property appraisers'
offices so they would have
something to take to other
legislators.

Courts
Ted McFetridge, court
administrator for the Eighth
Judicial Circuit, which containers
six counties including Bradford,
asked legislators to consider
the position judges are being
placed in when the operation of
the courts becomes financially
dependent on fines issued by
the judges. The money should
instead go to the general fund.
"The judge then would receive
a benefit from whether he or she
imposes the fine, and that's not
where they would like to be,"
McFetridge said.
Oelrich said he understood
judges not wanting to be in this


"untenable". position. Even if a
fine is appropriate, to have the
money go into a fund directly
benefiting judges doesn't look
right, he said.

Not to mention
There were requests from other
individuals as well, including
W.R. Alderman, who wanted
to see former railroad property
deeded to the city of Ha.mpton so
the city could build a trailhead
for the Rails to Trails project.
Bob Atteberry asked legislators
use caution when pushing for
reliance on alternative energies
that could increase consumers'
energy costs.
County Commissioner Doyle
Thomas asked for further state
financial support for a future
senior center, and he asked that
state road assistance to counties
be protected. Commissioner
Eddie Lewis asked for support
of a grant application to build a
park in,Lincoln City.
Darrell O'Neal from the New
River Regional Landfill and the
landfill engineer, Steve Laux of
Jones Edmunds and Associates,
approached the delegation about
support for a grant-funded project
to clean landfill gas and turn it
into usable natural gas. Not only
could the landfill produce enough
gas at peak to provide electricity
to 10,000 homes, Laux said that
gas can also be compressed and
used to replace diesel fuel in
vehicles.
The $2 million in grant funds


requested would be used to
get that project off the ground,
including establishment of a
fueling facility.
Finally, Commissioner John
Wayne Hersey talked about
the need for an overpass at the
railroad on Southeast 144th
Avenue, and County Manager
Brad Carter asked for protection
for fiscally constrained county
funding and reminded legislators
of the pact to hold small county's
harmless from property tax
reform.

CAMERAS

cameras on its property, cities
have to get permission from
adjacent property owners to place
the cameras near the intersections
or use municipal right of way.
Opponents of red light cameras
around the state complain of
the privacy violation and said
they only exist to generate more
money. There is also conflicting
information about safety, showing
traffic cameras may reduce some
types, of accidents and injuries
but increase other types.
There will be a process for
appealing tickets, but City
Attorney Terry Brown said
typically fewer challenges are
brought since tickets issued by
cities are usually less expensive,
don't add points to a person's
record, and, consequently, don't
cause insurance rates to rise.
The commission is set to
workshop a proposed ordinance
on red light cameras at 5:30 p.m.
before its next meeting on Feb.
17. The ordinance is based on
the law put in place in Orlando.
Among the final decisions the
city has to make is how high to
set the fines.
The city will also proceed
with advertising the ordinance
for adoption.
Johnson said there could be a
grace period during which red
light runners are sent warning
letters to educate them about the
presence of the cameras, but any
grace period and its length would
be up to the commission.

Yesterdays Fest draws

record crowd to Gold Head


BY JAMES WILLIAMS
Monitor Editor
Crystal Tenerani was
responsible for coordinating
talent and exhibits at the
Yesterdays Festival at Gold
Head Branch State Park last
Saturday. She was afraid she
might have a hard time
attracting exhibits since last
year the event got rained out.
That problem didn't happen.
:"We increased the number


of vendors and exhibits by
about 25 percent this year,"
she said. She was expecting
attendance to break all records
too.
By noon, the parking lots
were filled and automobiles
were still lining up outside the
gate at S.R. 21. Park
management set up an extra
ticket booth at the front gate to
help speed up the $4 exchange
per auto and keep traffic from


backing up along S.R. 21.
Other than the gate fee into the
park, the event was free.
Keystone Heights residents
may have become a little blas6
about the annual festival, but
that didn't mean everyone
from outside the Lake Region
has too. The parking lot was
filled with license plates from
Duval, Volusia and Suwanee
counties and states as far away
as Pennsylvania.
Park volunteer and camper
Joy Brannen and her husband,
came here a few weeks ago
from South Dakota. "The last
thing we did before we left
was sell the snow blower," she
said.
Yes, the Paso Fino horses
were back but they had as
many on-lookers as ever. And
yes, everyone still jumps when
the Civil War-era cannon goes
off, even if they've heard it
before.

were back too, but there were
many not seen before this year.

A little before noon,
Tenerani had only two or three
vendor or exhibition no-shows,
and thought maybe even- they


might still show up, except for

benefits."
Another problem is that
because of a lack of funding, a
permanent team of trained
observer controllers cannot be
,established. Observer
controllers are trained on how
the SRI equipment works and,
in turn, train the Guardsmen
who are training with it.
Observer controllers work in
the field with the Guardsmen
and, as their name suggests,
observe the training scenarios
as they unfold and provide
evaluation.
Peppel said the observer-
controller team for the
exercises at Camp Blanding
was composed of 130
Guardsmen from 15 states.
Those Guardsmen did not meet
with SRI personnel until they
arrived at Camp Blanding.
Dennis Caylor, network
operations chief for SRI, said
team members got just a half
hour of training on the SRI
equipment.
"We really were behind the
curve," Caylor said. "We need
to do better to get them read-
ahead packets-bring this to
them and show .them what's
available. That caused a lot of
frustration."
First Lt. Phillip Patti, an
observer controller from Ohio,
said he and other observer
controllers got their first
instruction in the SRI.
technology two to three days
before the Wisconsin unit's
training began. He said the
technology was great .when it
worked, but admitted he and
others were having trouble
making it work.
"It does take time to learn
'it," Caylor said. "Obviously,
we need to do better showing
them the tool."
Several members of the 32n"
Infantry Brigade Combat
Team said the equipment
failed to work at times. Capt.
Andrew Weiler said the
equipment failed to work as it
did during demonstrations.
"What we got from it was
below standard," he said.
SRI personnel chalked
complaints of the equipment
not working to the fact that the
Guardsmen most likely did not
perform such operations as
changing the batteries of the
EDIs every night.
Peterson admitted he did not
like wasting time at night
.performing such tasks. The
technology, as it was presented
.to him; was'"cool" in theory,
-but he said he just did not
know how useful it was.

opinion, wasn't worth it,"
Peterson said.
"They definitely work,"
Taylor said, "but we definitely
don't find them that useful for
our training.".
Again, Peppel said the
usefulness is not fully
appreciated unless one can see
the data that is collected.
"It really comes down to the
guys at the lpwest level getting
an opportunity to see the
feedback that the system
provides," Peppel said.
Sgt. Josh Nickels, ,who
monitored data transmitted by
EDIs as training scenarios
were ongoing, sees the benefit
of such technology. A
commander, he said, cannot be
in multiple places at one time,
but. by reviewing the data
collected by the EDI, he can
see how his entire unit
performed during the training
scenarios.
"A commander can't always
be there," Nickels said. "This
allows him to kind of see
what's going on at those
(different) places."
Some Guardsmen
complained the EDI was too
bulky. It 'is designed to. be
carried on the soldiers' backs
as surrogates for the rear SAPI
(small-arms protective insert)
plates of their interceptor body
.armor vests. Peppel said the
EDI devices are the same
height and weight as the SAPI
plates, but 10-percent thicker.
"They're too thick,"
Peterson said.
Taylor said what makes the
equipment especially bulky is
that the soldiers were wearing
it with MILES (multiple
inated laser engagement
system) equipment. MILES is
designed, through the use of
lasers, to record hits and kills
by simulated weapons fire.
Several Guardsmen said the
MILES was not working

years were also on hand: Sons

and the Camp Blanding

strolled around the park in
everything from aristocratic
Tudor finery to Civil War and
World War II combat gear.
Plus there were trolley rides
and hikes around the park, re-
enactors and more.
"Even though it was cold
this morning," Henderson said
around noon, "this year, the

kills, for example, on soldiers
who were merely kneeling
down with no enemy fire
around them.
Nickels said the MILES
equipment can be fairly
complicated, with a number of
resets required to prepare it for
use.
"If that's not done properly,
it will show them as dead, or it
will show them in a state
they're not supposed to be in,"
Nickels said."
Though SRI personnel
believe strongly their
equipment does work and is
beneficial,. Pelpel-sadi the
company is not abo.e likening
to soldiers' issues and making
improvements.
t'The nice thing.about being
nonprofit is (we don't have

motivations," Peppel said.

For the third year, the Wings
of Dreams Warbird Museum
and Restoration Center ivill
present the Collings
Foundation's Wings of
Freedom Tour. According to
Museum Director Bob Oehl,
the Keystone Airpark on S.R.
100 will be the first stop of the
foundation's 2009 National
Tour.
World War II-era bombers
and other aircraft will be on
display from Friday, Feb. 20,'
until Monday, Feb. 23.
The mainstays of Allied
power in World War II will be
on hand-the B-17 Flying
Fortress, the B-25 Mitchell and
the only flying B-24 Liberator
and a TP-51C Mustang-will
be on display and available for
tours and rides (for a tax-
deductible donation) along
with a host of other vintage
and military aircraft. Flight
instruction will be available in
the B-25; no pilot's license
required.
Oehl and Co-Director Susan
King have planned a menu of
related events to go along wiith
the exhibition of warbirds.
World War II combat
airmen and artifacts will share
exhibits and war stories. A
Fighter Aces Symposium is
planned, as is a big band
hangar dinner and dance with a
22-piece swing band. WWII
re-enactors, youth aviation and
aviation history activities will
be included.
A Women of the Airforce


Service Pilots (WASP)
Symposium is also planned,
with vintage aircraft, fly overs
and demonstration flights.
Helicopter rides, food
venders, an Elvis tribute artist,
a Civil Air Patrol cadet color
guard, vintage cars,
motorcycles, military
equipment displays and other
special guests will also appear.
At the end of last month,
Oehl and King released an
architectural rendering of their
proposed museum. Paul Hagel
of Flad Architects, with offices
in Gainesville, has contributed
the design for the new facility.
Large structures, all of them
resembling aircraft hangars
-will be built on one section of
the airpark. Some of them will
also serve as hangars, either as
exhibition space or for
restoring vintage aircraft to

flying conditions. Oehl hopes
to break ground and begin
building within the calendar
year.
The museum co-directors
got a bit of a scare recently
when the U.S. Department of
Homeland Security department
began to make proposals that
could deter activities in
museums and air shows such
as the one Oehl plans and even
in small community airports.
However, according to Oehl
pilots, members of Congress
and others told the
Transportation Security
Administration that it needed
to go back to the drawing
board. They recently wrote to

BHS
graduate: a
published
author of
books and
articles
One of the two smallest
counties in Florida, and with a
correspondingly small
population base, Bradford
County' has produced an
inordinate number of people
whose exploits are known far
beyond county lines.
,Unfortunately, we were
unaware of anyone currently
moving up to a position of,
prominence until recently
when Bradford High School
graduate Debbie Mitchell Coty
emerged as an author of
renown with two historical
novels published and selling
well, along with co-authoring
,another and writing literally
dozens of articles, published in
magazines, newspapers,
anthologies and trade journals.
More interestingly, this is a
second career, beginning at
middle-age, after having
worked in a non-related field
for 20 years, or more. It's an
interesting story.
Coty's parents, Frank and
Adele Mitchell, came to Starke
in the late 1950s for Frank to
work as-administratoi for Dr.
Haupt's osteopath clinic. He
later left to accept employment
in the Florida State Prison
,Hospital (now Union
Correctional Institution) and
later became supervisor of
education in Florida State
Prison, from which he retired.
Adele taught in Bradford
County schools mntil her
retirement.
Coty was born in Jasper in
.1957-and was still an. infant
when the family moved to
Starke. In school, she was a
good student, vivacious and
outgoing, active in girls'
sports, with tennis becoming
her sport of preference.
Following graduation in
1975, Coty enrolled in the
University of South Florida for
lyw years, then transferred to
the ULniversity of Florida for
her final two years, earning a
degree in occupational therapy,
a vocation she would follow
until she made a career change.
In 2002, at age 45, she was
sitting in a dentist's waiting
room feeling disconsolate
about her career and 'the fact
her youngest child was leaving
the nest when an ad for a
writer's contest caught her eye.
She thought, "Writing? Me?


Debbie Coty


Dare I take the risk? Well, why
not?" Coty had an abiding
faith in God and sought,
through prayer, his guidance
and leadership with the
thought uppermost in her
mind, "If he wills it, he fulfills
it."
The die was cast, and Coty
began preparation for the new
career, although she had no
background in literary activity
other than having been a
vociferous reader down
through.'the years.
Obviously, writing requires
more than a desire to put
words together, and Coty
began to explore all facets of
the craft, taking courses in
grammar, style and
punctuation, and talking tQ
people who were successful in
publishing various papers. She
entered the contest, but despite
failing to win (or even place),
she soldiered on. Early failures
didn't deter her, nor did they
extinguish the flame that
burned within.
In the first year of writing,
she saw 10 of her articles
published, and has now seen
more than 80 articles in print.
During the next five years, she
wrote two historical novels,
"The Distant Shore" and
"Billowing Sails," based on
the true story of a young girl's
incredible journey of faith on
remote, untamed Merritt Island
(on Florida's east coast) in
1904. The two books, with
heroine Emma Lee Palmer, are
stories of hard-scrabble
families scratching out a living
in a tropical paradise,.
cognizant of life as it was lived
in the urban communities of
Miami and other coastal
Florida towns of the time, but
loving the rugged rural life on
Merritt Island and its diverse
characters living there.
"The Distant Shore" and its
sequel "Billowing Sails" tell


* Page 4B


the story of a 9-year old girl
leaving her home and family in
Miami in the year 1904 and
going to live with an old-maid,
school teacher aunt on Merritt
Island. A precocious child,
wise beyond her years, she was
adored by everyone, and
participated in a number of
adventures during the three
years covered in the stories.
The books, while fiction, are
an adaptation of a real-life
experience of Kathryn
Harrison, whose life on Merritt
Island occurred about 30 years
earlier. The story, though
perhaps a little saccharine, was
never dull and maintained the
interest of the reader
throughout.
"The Distant Shore" jumped
to number two on the VR
Publishing best-seller list
within four months of its 2007
release. "Billowing Sails,"
released in December 2008,
bids to, become similarly
successful. The publisher,
Barbour Books, has requested
Coty write several chapters for
four devotional books that will
also feature articles by
published 'authors Patsy
Clairmont and Anita Renfro.
This is a real compliment to a
fledging new writer, to be sure.
Unlike many authors .who
write a single book (think
Margaret Mitchell, author of
"Gone With 'the Wind," ) and
disappear from the radar'
screen, Coty 'continues writing.
and publishing books and
assorted papers, and has
expanded her contributions to
the literary world by teaching
workshops and leading free
writers' mini-workshops at
bookstores and libraries. In her
resume, Coty says she is
"excited that my inspirational
speaking invitations are
exploding." It is refreshing to
learn of a person willing to
freely share his or her
education and talents with
others.

Coty and her husband,
Charles "Chuck" Coty, live in
.Seffner in Hillsborough
County near Tampa, where he
is self-employed_ .a.Jafinancial
planner. With two children,
Christi and Matthew grown
and living independently, the
Cotys are empty nesters, living
actie lives in their
community. Coty's sister and
brother-in-law, Cindy and Jim
Hardee, also live in Seffner.
The two families will be joined
by Adele and Frank Mitchell
later this year as they relocate
to Seffner.

"Burley Moron'
Mike Hammonds was born, raised, and still lives in
Nicholasville, Kentucky. He grew up like I did, listening
to the Grand Ole Opry and watching shows like Porter
Wagoner and the Wilburn Brothers. Some of his
heroes in the music field were #1 Merle Travis, Doc
Watson and Stonewall Jackson. My favorite song that,
Mike has written is a tribute to Merle Travis. In the
song he talks about seeing Merle play the "Nine Pound
Hammer" on the Porter Wagoner Show. Mike was only
10 years old at that time and his life was changed
forever. He would walk down the street to a neighbor.
friend Ronald Lane, who helped him. with his first
chords on a guitar. Some of his other local heroes on
the guitar were Doug Stipes and Ray Allen Stipes. To
.Mike and I both, Ray Allen Stipes is the "Clayton
DeLaney" of Nicholasville. Dean Osborne is a good
friend of ours who also came to some of those early
jam sessions at the fire house. Dean is a great
musician with two great bands, Eastbound and
B.uetown. ejs.also-a- Pinecastle Recording Artist, but
he is also a bluegrass festival promoter. He asked
Mike and I to play at the Red Mile Bluegrass Festival
for him and he actually paid us. That was our first job
together. When we came off stage and wentto our
seats with our wives to watch Tony Rice, the guy next
to my wife asked her if she saw those two morons that
was up there a minute ago, meaning us. That is when
the (Moron Brothers) was born. His name was Mike
and my name was Mike, so Lardo and Burley .was
invented to separate the two Mike's. We both are
fortunate to come from strong, hard working, religious
families from the heart of the bluegrass. Our wives
travel with us and sell tapes, CD's and T-shirts.
Without their support and work, we couldn't and
wouldn't do it. Mainly because we're still mostly doing
it for fun. We both love to write songs, play music and
most of all get a reaction from the crowd. We feel that
there is enough sickness, sadness and grief in the
world today and the good Lord means for people to
have good, clean fun and laughter. Maybe that is the
job he chose us to do. We hope so, cause it is fun for
us also.
Michael T. Carr (alias Lardo Moron)


Public service
vs. limitations
Dear Editor:
On Thursday, Jan. 15, the
Starke Fire Department, led
by Chief Rowe, and the
Volunteer Fire Department, led
by Chief McCarthy showed
one of the most rapid and
cooperative efforts in response
to an alarm at my residence on
NW 177"h St., Starke. The
result: the smoke was
extinguished without damage
to our residence.
I observed that once the
alarm was "set off' due to an
engulfment of smoke, both fire
trucks, along with other city
reinforcements and county
volunteers, acted within
minutes. The intervention of
both departments showed a
genuine concern for public
safety, rather than boundary
concern.
Once the Starke Fire
Department acknowledged the
Heilbron Fire Department
commencing inquiry of the
situation, at their arrival,
authority was passed to the
Heilbron Fire Department
from the Starke City Fire
Department. This was
conducted in a smooth, and
professional manner.
If this is any indication of
what the county and city will
provide in the future, I applaud
the leaders at both the county
and city for working in a
"spirit of unity." The expertise
of professionals such as Chief
Rowe and staff and Chief
McCarthy and staff reflects
dedication to their mission as
. public officials.
In summation, I' believe this
act of public service shows a
local government responsive to'
the needs of the people, rather
than political and territorial-

"Lardo Moron"
I was born and raised in a small farming
community in Northern Fayette County called
Loradale Kentucky. My family on both sides grew
tobacco for a living. A lot of songs that I've written
are about my family and friends and stories told
around the country store. We later moved to
Jessamine County where I graduated high school
(believe it or not). While other kids were crazy
about the Rolling Stones, Elvis and Rock and
Roll, my interest seemed to be deep-rooted in
Country and Bluegrass music, with heros such as
Merle Travis, Flat & Scruggs, Osborne Brothers,
JD Crowe and Hank Williams. At the age of 21 I
got a job at the Lexington Fire Department where
I had a lot of time between duties to practice the
banjo and later the fiddle. Along about 1991, on a
warm sumrher evening, I was practicing my banjo
in front of Station #5 when a friend stopped by
with his guitar, Steve Works. Then a neighbor
came by with a bass fiddle and we were jamming
everyday after that in between duty. The jam
session grew until the pickers and audience
*sometimes were more than we had room for. One
night, somewhere about 1995, a shy guitar picker
came with his brother, also from Nicholasville, to
the jam session. He finally got his guitar out when
the crowd thinned down and immediately
everyone realized this guy had something to offer.
A special friendship soon developed between us
and today we're closer than friends, we're
brothers, Moron Brothers that is.

Resident upset
how firefighters
are treated
Dear Editor:
My husband and I have been
living in Bradford County for
. 10 years and I love it here.
I was absolutely shocked to
read about the Starke
Firefighters' plight in the Jan.
29 issue of the Bradford
County Telegraph (Firefighters
denied meeting by Starke
leaders). I had no idea how
terribly underpaid the Starke
Firefighters are. I think it is an
absolute shame that the


~i
firefighters earn meager pay
and yet their job requires them
to Out their lives on the line. I
don't know the convolutions of:
'politics here but it seems to me
that all the officials involved in
the issue should rearrange-their
priorities.
Firefighters should not need
a second job to supplement
their income. When they
respond to a call, they should
be alert not sleepy or tired
from their second job. They
are expected to do their best
because less than that could
mean a life lost. To me,
undermining the firefighters is
undermining safety of the
community.
Mrs. Fe Ripka

Upon books the collective
education of the race
depends; they are the sole
instruments of registering,
perpetuating and :
transmitting thought.

We cannot find words to
adequately express the thanks
and appreciation for the
genuine acts of friendship,
love and sympathy my family
received last week due to the
loss of our son Tyler.
The love shown us truly
exemplifies the best of life in a
close, tight-knit community.
Our loss was extremely heavy
on our hearts but your prayers,
hugs and words of
encouragement made it
possible for us to bear our
grief in a Christian manner.
We want each of you to know
we truly thank you and only
wish we could find words that
would convey otr love and
appreciation.

Bradford and Union
are now district
foes, while
Keystone's district
loses 2 teams

BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
The Florida High School
Athletic Association has
finalized its district
assignments in football, with.
the 'most notable changes from
the initially proposed districts
being that Bradford has been
moved into Union County's
district, while state power
Madison County has moved
out of that district and up in
classification.
District 2 in Class 2B was
initially proposed to include
Union, Madison County, Dixie
County, Fort White, FSU High
'School and Taylor County.
The finalized district is now
composed of Union, Bradford,
Fort White, FSU High, Taylor
County and East Gadsden,
which moved down from Class
2A. Madison County moved
up to 2A', while Dixie moved
down to IA.
"I'm happy now," Bradford
head coach Steve Hoard said.
"It changed three times."
Bradford had been originally
assigned to District 3 in 2B,
which was composed of
Baldwin, Bishop Snyder,
Bolles, Episcopal,- Fernandina
Beach and Yulee. Hoard was
not happy that his team was
'still in a district with Bolles,
but liked the district overall,
saying that it was composed of
teams Bradford could compete
with.
However, the 'FHSAA later
expanded that district to 10
teams, adding Interlachen,
University Christian and West
Nassau. Hoard said Bradford
would have taken a serious hit
in revenue with that district.
The district contained four
private schools, which
generally do not bring huge
crowds io away games. Plus,
the public schools in the
district do not traditionally.
bring a lot of people with them
as well to away games, Hoard
said.
Also, with nine district
opponents, Bradford had just

one game it could schedule
outside of the district. That
meant losing out on revenue
by,not being able to schedule
games against all three of its
neighboring rivals: Baker
County, Keystone Heights and
Union.
During this time of budget
cuts, it was not an ideal
situation, Hoard said.
Daniel Davis, Bradford's
athletic director, sent a letter to
the FHSAA appealing the new
assignment. Later, he and
Principal Lisa Graham met
with FHSAA representatives
to present their case.

compiled an 11-2 record and
defeated Chiefland to claim

Sign-ups
under way for

Starke Rec.

Dept. baseball

and softball
The Starke Recreation
Department is currently
accepting registrations for its
spring Babe Ruth baseball and
softball programs. Sign-ups
continue through Friday, Feb.
13.
In baseball, there are six
leagues for the following age
groups, with April 30 as the
age-determining date: 4-6 (T-
ball), 7-8 (rookie), 9-10


assignment does involve
having to travel to the
Tallahassee-_aarea multiple
times, Bradford gets to play
Union in a regular-season
contest, which it has not done
in quite a while (the two teams
have played in the preseason
the past couple of years), and
still be able to schedule games
against Baker County and
Keystone.
The school should be able to
take in a lot of money at the
gate with home games against
Baker, Keystone and Union.
"Financially, it really gave a
shot in the arm to our school
and our athletic program,"


(minor), 11-12 (major), 13-15
(Babe Ruth senior) and 16-18
(Babe Ruth). Children 8 or 10
may play in the next league up
they have exceptional skills
and parents sign a waiver.
Softball has fivq. leagues 'for
the following age groups, with
Dec. 31, 2008, as the
determining date: 6-8 (8U), 9-
10 (10U), 11-12 (12U), 13-14
,(14U) and 15.-16 (16U).
Children may play in the next

Hoard said, noting that the
other sports at the school
depend upon revenue
generated at football games.
Keystone Heights' district
also has a bit of a different
look than the one that was
originally proposed. The
Indians had been placed in
District 4 in Class 2B with
Interlachen, Mount Dora,
Newberry, Trinity Catholic,
Umatilla, the Villages and
Williston. The Villages has
since been moved down to
Class IA, while Interlachep
was assigned to another district
within 2B, leaving Keystone in
a six-team district.

unit in training


Several Guardsmen
say equipment not
beneficial

BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
It's no surprise in today's
world to find a marriage
between the military and
technology, but technology
employed during recent
training undertaken by the
Wisconsin National Guard unit
at the Camp Blanding Joint
Training Center had its
detractors.
The 32nd Infantry Brigade
Combat Team, preparing for
deployment to Iraq, spent three
weeks in Florida training at
Camp Blanding. Part of that
training incorporated
participating in Exportable
Combat Training Exercispes
that created four types of basic
scenarios: entering and
clearing a building; convey
operations, reconnaissance and
traffic-control points.
In conjunction with that,


Guardsmen wore enhanced
dismount instrumentation
(EDI) on their backs as part of
the FlexTrain system-GPS-
based military training
developed by SRI
International, a nonprofit
organization., The purpose of
the instrumentation, used in
conjunction with video footage
recorded during the training by
Allied Container Systems Inc.
personnel, was to help Guard
leaders assess training
performance and see, what
went right and what! went
wrong.
EDI devices, which were
also installed on vehicles,
recorded Guardsmen's
movements, down to
individual soldiers. That data
was observed in real time at
tactical analysis facilities and
later viewed by Guardsmen
during after-action review
sessions. The EDI footage was
synchronized with video
footage, with both being
shown simultaneously during
after-action review sessions.

his actions being recorded on video for an after-action review.


Several soldiers agreed that
the video footage was useful,
but they were not impressed
with the EDI.
"It would take a lot of work
to find someone on this base
with a positive spin on the
EDI," Sgt. Philip Taylor said.
"Unless they outrank me,"
Capt. Daniel Peterson quickly
added. '
That may very well be the
case. While SRI personnel
stood by their technology and
the benefits they propose it has
for training Guard members,
they admitted there were some
issues to be addressed.


Kipp Peppel, program
manager for SRI, said if the
data collected by the electronic
instrumentation, as it is
currently set up, is usually
viewed by only battalion and
company leaders during after-
action review sessions.
Therefore, if you ask a
Guardsman of a higher rank,
you would probably get a
different answer as to the
effectiveness of the equipment,
Peppel said.


Peppel admitted a system
needs to be devised that would
allow everyone to access the
electronic data.
"Everything's been
(focused) on the leaders
because they want to make
sure the guys in charge are the
best trained possible," Peppel
said, "but that doesn't mean
everybody down to the ground
level shouldn't also get the

The pre-closing execution of
documents' on $71 million in
Infrastructure Sales Surtax
Revenue Bonds, Series 2009
was held on Jan. 29 the .Clay
County Administration
Building in preparation of
today's bond closing.
The bonds will be used to
finance three major road
construction projects which
will be built over the next four
years. The bond issue includes
$14 million to widen Old
Jennings Road to four lanes;
$11.1 million to widen C.R.
209 to four lanes from C.R.
220 to Henley Road and $44.6
million to widen Henley Road
to four lanes from C.R. 209 to
C.R. 218.
Authorization to proceed
with a bond issue was
originally approved by the
Board of County
Commissioners (BCC) in fall
of 2008. At the same time,
the bond market began to
weaken and interest rates
began to rise. The BCC
delegated the authority to the
county rianager to close' the'"
deal when he felt it was
prudent. With improvements
in the .bond market, the county
manager determined to market
the bonds on Jan. 15. The
resulting interest rate of 3.2
percent, as compared to the
rates in place when the BCC
approved the bonds, will save.
Clay County $9.5 million in
interest payments over the life
of the bond issue.
"I am very proud of the
decisions of the Board of
Commissioners," stated
Wendell D. Davis, 2009
chairman.

BHS wrestlers wrap up regular season, prepare for districts


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
The Bradford wrestling team
took some lumps at a
tournament at Buchholz *High
School in Gainesville to cap
the regular season, but the
Tornadoes had several bright
spots at season's end as they
prepare for this weekend's
district tournament at Wakulla
High School.
Bradford (22-10) went 2-3 in
the Buchholz tournament,
which was held this past
weekend. Casey Hines, who is
currently ranked second in the
state in the 215-pound class,
: remained undefeated, going 5-
:0.
"He didn't have anybody
really challenge him,"
Bradford head coach Joe Van
Vactor said.
Fellow senior teammate


Billy Brooks, who, like Hines,
has more than 100 career wins,
went undefeated in the
tournament as well. Brooks,
who wrestles in the 140-pound
class, claimed his second win
of the year over Bryan
Wainwright of Suwannee.
Van Vactor said that was a
good win for Brooks. In the
earlier matchup between the
two, Brooks pulled the match
out at the last second with a
takedown. This time around,
Brooks pinned Wainwright in
the second period.
It's a good sign entering the
district tournament, Van
Vactor said. Brooks is
attempting to win his third
straight district championship.
"He's doing the right things
at the right time," Van Vactor
said.
Brooks is ranked eighth in


the state, but that was before
he beat the wrestler ranked
ahead of him in convincing
fashion at a tournament at
Terry Parker High School Jan.
24.
It was a good tournament
overall for the Tornadoes, who
went 6-1 and placed fifth. One
of the key wins, according to
Van Vactor, was against
Mandarin, which was once. a
wrestling power in north
Florida. Bradford trailed
Mandarin 37-34 when
freshman Devin Paulk stepped
onto the mat. Paulk was forced
onto his back, but was able to
escape. He trailed 5-1, but
responded with a takedown
and a nearside cradle.
Those maneuvers left Paulk
trailing by two, but the
freshman pinned his opponent,
giving himself and his team
the win.
"When the ref signaled the
pin, the whole team was
ecstatic," Van Vactor said.
The tournament was where
Hines won his 100th career
match. That occurred late in
the first period, against a
wrestler from Yulee.
Bradford followed that

tournamentt up with a 44-23
win over Baker County Jan. 27
in Starke. Baker built a 23-6
lead, with Bradford's six
points coming on a forfeiture,
but the rest of the match
belonged to the Tornadoes.
Brooks pinned his opponent


in 1:36, while Dylan White
followed that up with an 18-15
win, pulling Bradford within
23-15.
The Wildcats forfeited three
consecutive weight classes, the
result of which had Bradford
leading 33-23. Hines then


finished the- match off by
pinning his opponent.
Hines and Brooks were
honored prior to the match. It
was senior night, so the two
were recognized along with
fellow seniors Ben Wentz and
Logan Johnson.
