thefts from

church .
Last week, Clay County Sheriff's
Office General Investigation Unit
detectives solved a string of burglaries
believed' committed by the same
suspect, with incidents in two counties.
All of the burglaries involved the theft
of guitars and music equipment from
local churches.
In Clay County, the thefts were
committed at the Friendship Bible
Church,CommunityChurchofKeystone
Heights and the Lake Area Baptist

area. Bradford Cointy authorities are
also pursuing this same suspect for
at least five cases here, according to
CCSO's Mary Justino.

arrested Joshua David Beck of Oakview
Road in Melrose, charging him with
burglary and grand theft.
Kitties followed information supplied

purchased a Medora bass guitar from
Beck. It matched the description given
b) church staff after one 6f the three"
incidents in the Keystone area.
Lightning Pawn's owner said Beck

Starke outlet of the pawn shop. When
Kittles visited the Starke store, the
.manager there advised the officer that
Beck had also sold several guitars -to
the North Florida Music and. Sound,

When Beck was questioned, he
produced several items in his home
which were photographed as evidence,
including more guitars, blank CDs and
a sports jacket.

Beck drove around Clay and Bradford
counties, pointing out churches he
claimed to have recently entered and
robbed.

The Kangaroo convenience store at
the corner of C.R. 233 (Morgan Road)
and S.R. 16 was robbed on Feb. 9 for the
second time in six days.
The first robbery occurred Feb. 3
and resulted in a high-speed chase that
ended with the suspect dead as the
result of a vehicle crash.
According to Capt. Brad Smith of
the Bradford County Sheriff's Office,
the second robbery happened at about
11 a.m. and this suspect also fled the

Bradford Superintendent Beth Moore
and the school district's finance director,
Julee Tinsler, have been on a mission,
speaking to any group who will listen
about the budget cuts education has
suffered in the county and around the
state.
Their goal is not only to explain the.
cuts that Tinsler called "disastrous" but
also build support in hope that listeners
will contact legislators and encourage
change.
Tinsler,whoalso gave the presentation
to the school board, began by giving
an overview of the district's operating
budget, which includes the general
fund, capital outlay, food services
and debt service. Based on the 2008-

on Feb. 9 for a brief
period and left without
buying anything. A
short time later, he
allegedly returned to
the store wearing a ski
mask and brandishing
what appeared to be
a machine pistol, !lke
an uzi. He allegedly
demanded money from
the clerk, who complied
with his demands.
Witnesses said
the suspect then left
the store on foot and

district's revenue comes from federal
and local sources; it relies on the state
for 62 percent of its funding.
The state has a. formula that
determines what each district will
receive. Half of the operating revenue
for 2008-09 is basic funding awarded by
the state. Twenty percent is the portion
of the local property taxes the state
requires the district to collect, known as
the required local effort. If the district
doesn't levy the required local effort, it
doesn't receive basic funding under the
state formula.
There is also discretionary portion
of the millage that, if levied, allows the
district to maximize its state award.
Local discretionary millage makes up
3 percent of state funding.
More than a quarter of the operating
revenue is state
money that

BCSO deputies
responded and civilian
bystanders pointed
them into a field
about a mile south of
the store. The suspect
had apparently been
travelling by bicycle, but
had abandoned it and
began running across
the field. Smith said
Williams apparently
also lost his pants while
jumping the fence.
BCSO detectives
Kevin Mueller and
Brian Davis pursued


the suspect and caught him a short time
later. They also recovered the firearm
he used, which turned out to be a plastic
toy.
The store clerk identified Williams
as the suspect and he was booked into
the Bradford County Jail.

come."
Smith and Johnson worked together
for many years at SPD before Smith
was elected sheriff.

formula has taken a nosedive. According
to Tinsler, the district has had to cut
more than $1,8 million from its budget
since last year. That's huge given the
size of the county, she said.
One reason there is less money is that
enrollment in public schools continues
to be in a state of decline. Since the
amount of money the district receives
is partially based on student population,
fewer students translate to less revenue.
But the economy has reduced
revenue generated by the state, which
means there is less money to go around.
Education is one of the areas that has
taken a large hit. And while the local
effect hasn't been great, the impact
to others school systems because of
the passage of Amendment 1 does
ultimately affect this county, too,
Tinsler said.
Funding was reduced in the middle
of last school year, and on top of an
expected cut to this year's budget, the


governor advised state agencies to hold
back even more money. That additional
cut was recently realized meaning the
district has been cut 6.62 percent since
last school year.
Tinsler said there have been six cuts
in the last two years. Total state funding
has been reduced more than 12 percent.
Net funding under the state's education
formula has fallen almost 20 percent.
What does the loss in money mean
for the district? Well, 81 percent of
the district's money goes to pay for
employee salaries and benefits, Tinsler
said. While contract services have been
reduced significantly, another 7 percent
of the general fund is still spent in
this area, largely for required services
provided to ESE students such as speech
and occupational therapy.
Five percent of the general fund
is spent ,on energy. Not only is

- Firefighters offered deal at

crowded commission meeting


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

Family and friends of Starke
firefighters turned up at the most
recent city commission meeting
to support the union, which
was recently denied a face-to-
face. negotiating session by the
commissioners.
While commissioners spoke
relatively briefly, except to
reaffirm their appreciation for
their fire department, their
attorney, Terry Brown, mounted
a defense of the city by pointing
out that the firefighters aren't as
underpaid as some might think.
Among the supporters of the
fire department was Clay County
firefighter Harry Hatcher, a
Starke resident, who said he
couldn't understand why the two
sides couldn't meet if the attorney
said it would not be illegal to do
so.
Starke's former fire chief,
Dwayne Hardy, said a lot of good
young men and women have been
lost to other departments over the
years, but said those who stay do
so out of a sense of obligation to
their community. The experience
they'gain over they years helps
save lives and he pointed out a
price can't be put on that.
Hardy said when he worked
for the city, the city commission
"workshopped things to death,"
so he asked why the board
wouldn't sit down with the fire
department. It was a question
that was never answered. He
criticized the board .for not being
proactive, saying if it had been,
outstanding matters would have-
been settled by now.
"Adversarial relationships are
not going to get us anywhere,"
Hardy said. "'
He said he didn't believe
in management by crisis and
wanted commissioners to stand
up and lead the city.
Brown said in the current
economy when there is a hiring
freeze in effect and spending cuts
being made in other departments,
anyone who approaches
the commission for a 20-30


he said, but they are no more
entitled to it than police officers,
line crewmen or others who risk
their lives in their work for the
city.
Commissioners said they
cared about the firefighters, but
lack of money was the problem.
Commissioner Travis Woods, for
example, said the city has shown
its support by establishing the
new fire station and purchasing a
traffic control system to get fire
trucks safely onto the highway.
As for the discrepancy in
starting salaries for firefighters
versus other city employees,'
Brown argued that it would have
been an unfair labor practice
for the city to raise the starting
salary for firefighters without
renegotiating the existing
contract. (Firefighters have,
however, been given the cost
of living raises of 2-3 percent
annually granted to other
employees without renegotiating
the contract.)
When Linda Wise, former
city clerk and mother of
firefighter Gary Wise, asked if
the commission had approved of
employees in other departments
being hired at a higher hourly
iated, she was tQld the operations
manager (or other department
heads) had discretion in setting
starting salaries for non-union
employees.
Brown said the starting salary
of $8 an hour was too low, and
no one would debate that, but
he added another approach is
to look at what an individual
takes home annually. That would
include overtime, safety pay, etc.
*Brown selected a firefighter who
has been with the city several
years an example. While that
.firefighters makes less than $14
an hour, less than some were
making when hired by the police
department, his W-2 shows he
took home more than $46,800.
Brown said that's more than
anyone in the police department
except for the chief.
Adding annual benefits
such as health coverage and
retirement contributions, Brown

No new cases of salmonella reported in BC


One unlucky Bradford
County resident became the
first Floridian to be struck with
illness following consumption
of a product contaminated with
salmonella bacteria. ,
The illness was believed to be
related to nationwide outbreak
due to the consumption of tainted
peanut products.
As of Tuesday, no additional
cases had been reported in the
county, according.- to Susan
Smith of the Florida Department
of Health.
Smith could not release details
on the individual case, although
it has been reported that the
sick individual was treated and
released from the hospital.
More than 550 people have
become sick in 44 states during
the salmonella outbreak. Eight
people have died from- the
infection, whose symptoms.
include severe cramps, fever,
stomachache and vomiting.
Symptoms typically subside
within a week, although it's
important that all suspected


cases be reported. According to
the Centers for Diease Control
and Prevention, for every case
of salmonella reported, many
more go unreported, but it is only
through diagnosis and taking
samples that the outbreak can be
tracked.
Accordingtothe Food and Drug
Administration, peanut butter
and peanut paste produced by the
Peanut Corporation of America at
its Blakely, Ga., processing plant
are to' blame for the illnesses.
Neither product was sold directly
to consumers. However, through
its investigation, FDA has
determined that PCA distributed
potentially contaminated product
to more than 100 consignee
firms, for use as an ingredient in
hundreds of different products,
such as cookies, crackers, cereal,
candy and ice cream.
'Recalls on hundreds of
products have been issued.

initial request, Brown said that
firefighter would be making an
additional 20 percent on top of
that.
Brown also said the shift
arrangement-working 24 hours,
and then being off 48 hours-
allowed firefighters to take on
second jobs, sometimes with
other fire departments. So, he
said, even those making a starting
salary of $8 an hour are making
more than it would seem.
Firefighter Lt. .Gary Wise
admitted the attorney, had been
talking about his.earnings.'Wise
was one of several firefighters
who spoke out after the city
commission refused to meet with
union members.
He made no apologies for what
he earned and countered Brown's
numbers with some of his own.
If annual salaries total more than
other city employees, it's because
firefighters put in hundreds
of more hours each year, not
including scheduled overtime, he
said. Discussing the additional
overtime-some 226 hours-
that elevated his earnings, Wise
said he earns his pay working
holidays and emergencies when
other employees are home with
their families.
He said firefighters aren't
getting a fair shake for the hours
they put in, and as for benefits,
other employees are receiving
benefits on top of their salaries
as well.
Brown said if firefighters gave
up the current shift arrangement,
the city could afford to pay them a
higher hourly rate. In fact, he said
if the union consents to eight-hour
shifts five days a week like those
worked by correctional officers,
the city could then afford to give
them a $4 across-the-board raise,
something no one else in the city
is being offered.
Trading a higher hourly rate
for fewer hours didn't initially
seem to sit well with Wise, so it
remains to be seen whether or
not the union will take the city's
latest offer.
Both sides did agree, however,
that, while times are tough,
they are-ni-*-t--an-i-mpasse and
negotiations will c onimnue,- .

Policy being crafted for building permit extensions


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor
Interest in ways to jumpstart
development and the local
economy led to some conflict
among county commissioners
who couldn't see eye-to-eye
about creating a policy to forgive
expired building permits.
Commissioner Eddie Lewis,
who proposed 'a moratorium
on impact fees, also wants
the policy of the building and
zoning office changed to offer
automatic extensions granted to
builders or individuals who have
pulled permits but not completed
construction of the permitted
project within the specified six-
month time limit.
Building permits can be
costly and having to pay a
second fee might discourage the
completion of projects that have
already begun but had to stop for
economic or other reasons.
Attorney Terry Brown said
the code gives the building
office great latitude in granting
extensions, but the county needs


to' treat applicants consistently
and recommended that be put in
writing.
A uniform policy was
proposed that would direct staff
to be liberal when approached
for an extension to; allow people
to complete construction of a
project without having to pay an
additional permit fee.
Zoning Director Nora
Thompson said the office
normally grants one building
permit extension after the six-
month deadline, which gives
builders one year between
inspections.
"We've never voided
somebody's permit that didn't
give an inspection in six months,"
Thompson said. While the six-
month deadline is printed on the
permit, all an individual has to
do is call and ask for an extension
and it is granted, Thompson
said.
Commissioner John Wayne
Hersey didn't agree with
establishing a policy to satisfy
one or a few individuals because
they fail to pick up the phone.


Lewis said times are hard and
it's difficult just to get building
materials. Hersey said that might
be true, but asked how hard it
was to call the building office
and explain your problem.
... "I don't think you're going to.
find anyone has been thrownw to
the wolves," Hersey said.
Building Director Wilson
Whidden defended the current
code, which is the code the board
adopted and which allows for two
extensions. He said people are
struggling and they will likely
be given as many extensions as
needed to complete their homes.
Ross Chandler said it sounded
like ample time was being given.
According to Brown, eliminating
the need to pay another building
permit fee might be a way to get
people back to work on buildings
that have already been started.
Commissioner
Brown said sometimes
common sense things need to be
put into writing, and Chairman
Doyle Thomas said a written
policy would let people to know
the guidelines and keep them


from falling between the cracks.
Thompson asked if the policy
would be retroactive to cover
permits that have already expired
and become void, and Thomas
said he understood the policy
would cover expired permits.
Chandler said he was willing to
go back a year, but Hersey didn't
want it to apply any earlier than
the effective date of the policy
they were talking about setting.
At the meeting, Thompson
couldn't say off the top of her head
how.many voided permits might
have to be made active again if
the new policy automatically
extended the timeline for those
projects as well. One permit was
recently reissued for a house

Contractor promises to use


local vendors in cleanup


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

The Starke City Commission
has agreed to let Advanced
Environmental Technologies,
a Georgia Company with
offices in Florida, complete the
environmental cleanup at the site
of the old city power plant.
AET once had the contract but
lost it to a company that, at least
tthe time, the city considered
more local. As part of its pitch
to get the contract back, AET
President Chad Gunter told
the city commission he would
hire local companies to provide
materials and labor.
The commission was attracted
to the.idea of keeping the money
local.
"That's money coming directly
from the taxpayers all in the state
of Florida coming directly into
your economy. You might as well
spend it locally and put people to
work.here," Gunter said.
Commissioner Carolyn
Spooner revived poor memories
of AET's prior performance.
These were mostly .set aside,
however, as the commission
took action to award AET the
contract. Gunter explained
perceived inaction years ago was
due to the company's difficulty
in convincing the state that the
contaminated soil needed to be
dug and removed from the site.
Because of the nature of the
project, the city can change
contractors at will.The contractor
chosen to lead the cleanup then
works with the state, submitting
proposals getting approval
for the work that needs to be
performed.
It is a process that has taken
years, although progress has been
made. Some contamination has
been removed and the building
has been demolished.
AET's work will include
completing removal of the
contamination, then restoring the
site, including replacement of the
concrete foundation that is being
destroyed.
AET is familiar with the


project and actually completed a
site assessment and remediation
plan prior to losing the contract to
FORTIS Environmental Group.
The site has diesel
contamination dating back to the
operation of the power plant to
generate electricity for the city.
The cleanup is being paid. for by
the state through the Department
of Environmental Protections
Early Detection Incentive
program.
The total remainder of the
project is estimated to cost $1.2
million. Once the work order is
received from DEP, the estimated
time to complete the project is
four weeks. Two crews will work
seven days a week to get the work
done once and for all.
Gunter, a former Starke
resident, said as soon as AET
was awarded the contract, it
would begin initiating an action


plan to complete the cleanup and
site rehabilitation.
According to Gunter, this
should mean work for local

Area black

history

events

held
BY JAMES WILLIAMS
Monitor Editor
A number of events in *
the tri-counties highlighted
black history month last
week, among them a Santa
Fe College gala in Starke
which featured former
Paterson New Jersey
High School Principal Joe
Clark.
The Bellamy Road
Gallery in Melrose
featured a documentary
film on black writer and
Florida native Zora Neal
Hurston. The gallery also
mounted an exhibit of
artworks by painter Ernest
Lee, which is on-going,
and a welcomed showing
of six works by some of
the 20th-century painting
group now referred
to collectively as the
Highwaymen.
Combined, the three
occasions highlighted
local and national African-
American art, culture
and history, brought that
history's richness and
variety to the forefront and
made it sparkle.


Famed principal Joe Clark visits Starke


BY JAMES WILLIAMS
Monitor Editor
In 1982-now more than a
quarter of a century ago-Joe
Clark became principal of the
Paterson New Jersey High
School.
The institution he faced
when he walked in the
door was part hellhole, part
prison and part high school.
The student population of
3,200 was composed largely
of African-Americans and
Hispanics, nearly one-third
of whose families were on
welfare. Students and faculty
traded drugs on the school
grounds; the smell of pot
in the hallways was a daily
occurrence. One third of the
teenaged girls were or would
be pregnant before leaving
high school, students and
.others wandered the hallways,
violence was routine. Learning
was rare and accidental.
Clark began his career,
first as a drill sergeant and
then as an elementary school
teacher and principal. When
he stepped up to the plate to
become a high school principal
he came armed with a bullhorn
and a baseball bat. And also
with hope, respect, courage
and above all, discipline.
"If you can believe it,
you can conceive it and you


can achieve it," he told his
students, adopting their rap
doggerel with a message.
One day, he expelled 300
students he called "leeches and
parasites.".He defied the local
drug lords and ordered their
schoolyard trade shut down,
meeting malingerers with
his Willie Mays Big Stick.
He instituted two-way traffic
patterns, with students ordered
to keep moving on the right
hand side of. the hallways
between classes. He banned
hats, gang wear, and racy
clothing. Tardies and absences
earned latrine duty scrubbing
the school toilets. He was as
exacting on the faculty as he
was on the students.
Clark's tough love education
had mixed academic results and
won him immense praise and
condemnation. After he booted
numerous faculty members
for various infractions, small
and large, and expelled more
than 60 students without due
process the school board,
decided enough was enough
and called,it quits.
Along the way, Clark earned
praise from then Secretary of
Education William Bennett
who said "Sometimes you
need Mr. Chips; sometimes
you need Dirty Harry."
Clark was offered an
advisory position by Ronald
Reagan (he turned it down)


got his picture on the cover
of Time magazine and had his
story turned into a Hollywood
studio movie, "Lean on Me"
with then-relative unknown
Morgan Freeman, who played
Clark.
Since then, Clark has
become a mainstay on the
motivational speaking circuit,
which brought him to Starke
last week.
The event was a fund-
raiser for the SFC's Dollars
for Scholars program, and
featured a dinner, catered
by Western Steer owner and
former Bradford County
School Superintendent Harry
Hatcher.
Among those sitting at tables
in the predominantly white
audience were members of
the Alachua County Brother's
Keepers and Bradford
County's Brothers and Sisters
Keepers. Those are mentoring
programs in which established
members of the black
community provide guidance
and leadership to younger
black men and women, mostly
students.
SFC President Jackson
Sasser introduced "audience
notables, Andrews Center
Director Cheryl Canova and
the Dollars for Scholars board
members among them.
Sasser told the crowd that
the fund-raising goal is $1


million, $200,000 of
which will bring current
scholarships up to
today's funding levels.
The remainder of funds
raised will create 10
new scholarships, to
be dispensed to SFC
students in Bradford
County.
Clark then spoke,
saying almost nothing
about his successes
and tribulations
or the New Jersey
educational system.
His was a speech of
motivational aphorisms,
poetry, sermonettes,
dubious anecdotes,
jokes and above all,
encouragement to excel.
"They only gave me 30
minutes to talk," he said.
"But I only get revved
up after 60 minutes,"
he told the crowd as
he took off his jacket
to show that he meant
business.
His references to tough love
in education struck chords
with members of the crowd
perhaps because Bradforc
County schools have also beer
hit recently with a few jolts
from students, faculty and
administration.
Attheend of his presentation
Clark called every young
person in the crowd to the


Former Principal Joe Clark
dais.
"Move expeditiously," he
s barked when they hung back.
, When the sterling group of
j scrubbed and polished youths
had gathered, he made them
s repeat after him a commitment
s to a life spent striving for
excellence, repeating several
times the refrain from Martin
Luther King's civil rights era,
g "Fam somebody."


Black writer


featured at


gallery


At the Bellamy Road Gallery
in Melrose last Saturday night,
Black History Month was
celebrated by screening an 84-
minute DVD documentary on
the life and works of African
American 20th-century writer
Zora Neale Hurston.
The 2008 biopic, "Jump at
the Sun" was produced and
written by Kristy Andersen
who appeared at the gallery to
introduce the film and answer
questions frdin' the4 full-house
audience.
The film took 18 years to
complete and was funded
over time by the National
Endowment for the Arts,
the Ford Foundation, the
Florida Division 'of Cultural
Affairs, the National Black
Programming Consortium and
other agencies.
Hurston was an African-
American writer and
anthropologist, first introduced
to the public as a maid and
traveling companion to Fanny
Hurst, among the first notables
to encourage and support
Hurston's literary career.
Hurston's works included
fiction, such as "Their Eyes
Were Watching God," "Mule
Bone" and anthropological,
non-fiction works like "Tell My
Horse," a treatise on voodoo in
Jamaica and Haiti.
Hurston, the woman, was
by all accounts fun, dramatic,
smart;sensitive and courageous.
She was called the queen of the
Harlem Renaissance in the 20s
and 30s.
As they traveled across the
U.S. the more famous-and
white-Hurst asked segregated
hotels for rooms for herself
and Princess Zora-and since
it sounded like African royalty
had come calling, the two.
women integrated otherwise
Jim Crow hotels.
"Jump at the Sun" begins
with Hurston's origins in
Eatonville, the first and one
of few all-black towns in the
U.S. It then follows her to the
heights of her career among
the "niggerati" (her term) in
New York City, and eventually
back to Eatonville, Belle Glade
and finally Fort Pierce. There,
she died in obscurity and was
buried in an unmarked grave.
Through interviews with a
host of Contemporary black
and white scholars and poets,
including Henry Louis Gates
and Maya Angelou, the film
traces Hurston's life and
influence on all of U.S. culture
and society.
Highlights of the film
include original film footage
of southern black communities
at work and play in the early
decades of the last century.
Some of the grainy black and
white snippets were shot by
Hurston herself.as she crossed
Florida and the south, capturing
the songs, dances, speech and
religious beliefs and mores of
Southern black life.
Hurston refused to fall into


lockstep as an angry *
black voice, and chose
to record instead the
humor and folkways
of black Americans.
She fell out of
favor with just about
everybody' for one
reason or another:
Hurst, poet Langston
Hughes, novelist
Richard Wright, her
publishers and maybe
the U.S. government.
As the nation entered Ithe
civil rights era of the 1950s and
1960s, she dismissed interracial
marriage as an ill-considered,
unnecessary trend and refused
to condemn segregation. She

black history, on


One of the more interesting
stories about American artists
is the tale of African American
painters from Fort Pierce, a
group now collectively referred
to as the Highwaymen.
They didn't come to be
called the Highwaymen until
the mid-1990s. The 24 to 29
painters (depending on whom
you ask) painted idealized
Florida landscapes between the
1950s until around the end of
the 1970s.-


Gary Monroe, an art history
instructor at Daytona Beach
College, has written one book
about -the- Highwaymen as a
group, complete with plates of
their work and another about
Harold Newton, who over time
became one' of the group's more
accomplished artists.
Six paintings.of palm trees
and Florida surf are on display
at the Bellamy Road Gallery
in Melrose through February.

display
collection. Taken together,
they illustrate the talents of the
artists and how each interpreted
a common theme.
The group's name comes
from the fact that they sold
their paintings door to door
and frequently out of their
automobiles along back roads
with the paintings sitting on
the dirt, leaning against grills
and tires, open and waiting for
business. If you are of a certain

Cowboy hats and boots were
part of the mix as the Keystone

their heels on the dance floor.
It was the club's annual fund-

cole slaw, baked beans and
other trimmings. All of it was

Understanding
grass tetany
Tim Wilson
UF/IFAS Bradford County
Extension Director
i, Although
it is exciting
to see win-
:.1 after forages
A M (small grains
and ryegrass
pastures)
grow during
times of high.
.t -,. input costs,
there are pre-
cautions we
should take to make sure cattle
do not experience.grass tetany.
Grass tetany is a nutritional im-
balance resulting from reduced
,magnesium levels in the blood.
Some producers refer to grass
tetany as grass staggers, winter
tetany or hypomagnesemic teta-
ny, and even a few other names
not mentioned.
Signs of grass tetany include
nervousness, lack of coordina-
tion, muscular spasmis, stagger-
ing and death. If grass tetany is
suspected, a veterinarian should
be contacted immediately to di-
agnosis and treat animals. Death
may occur soon after the first
signs of grass tetany are ob-
served.
Cattle that experience nutri-
tional stress while grazing the
first lush growth of high quality
small grains and ryegrass pas-
tures may become vulnerable to
grass tetany. These fast growing
forages may be high in nitrogen
and low in magnesium resulting
in grass teteny susceptibility. As
these forages mature, the likeli-
hood of a problem is reduced.
The key to avoiding grass teta-
ny is prevention. Supplying cattle
with a complete mineral mix that
is high in magnesium (10-15 per-
cent) can prevent cattle from be-
ing deficient in magnesium. Al-
though a serious problem, it can
be avoided by providing proper
-mineral nutrition at the appropri-
ate time of the year.

Second multi-use path opens in Keystone Heights


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
Thanks to a federal grant, a
second multi-use path has been
constructed in Keystone
Heights, which had Mayor
Mary Lou Hildreth
proclaiming the path adds to
the city's attraction to people
who are looking for a place to
"reside.
The 5.5-mile path, which
traverses along S.R. 21
between Hardee's and the
entrance to Gold Head Branch
State Park, was officially
opened Feb. 6 with a ribbon-
cutting ceremony on a frigid
morning. Construction of the
$1.4 million project, which
was 100-percent funded by a
U.S. Department of
Transportation Federal
Highway Administration grant,
began June 19, 2008,.
"The Department of


Transportation is not,just about
building roads and bridges and
maintaining roads and
bridges," said Gina Busscher,
public information officer for
the Florida Department of
Transportation. "We get
involved in all kinds of
different projects, including
recreational trails."
Hildreth said the path was
originally planned on being
just a sidewalk, but the
Department of Transportation
decided to expand the project.
For that, she is thankful,
because she believes the trail
will get a lot of use.
"I think that -the potential
down the road is going to be a
true benefit to the city of
Keystone Heights and this
whole area," Hildreth said.
Hildreth cited information
she obtained from the National
Association of Home Builders


and the Visit Florida Web site
in stating the importance of
such a path. She said
information on places to
bicycle is the most requested
information of the Florida Web
site, with more than 90,000
copies of the state's bike trails
guide being downloaded since
January 2008. The National
Home Builders Association


lists trails as the number-one
amenity people are looking for
in an area to live.
"They beat out golf courses.
They beat out swimming
pools," Hildreth said.
Clay County commissioner
Doug Conkey concurred,
saying a joint venture with the
county's chamber of
commerce revealed that


recreational opportunities are
what people look for when
relocating. People want to
know what a community offers.
their families.
"It's a great enhancement to
the county's quality of life,"
Conkey said.
Hildreth added such a path is
a benefit to those who already
live in Keystone, considering


these tough economic times.
"A lot of people are going to
stay closer to home," Hildreth
said. "They're going TO be
looking at things they can do
as a family and not travel."
Jason Cutshaw, Gold Head
Branch State Park manager,
said the park has received,

Portable building


at RMC burns


There were no injuries in the
fire that broke out in a small
portable building located at
Reception and Medical Center
in- Lake Butler on Feb. 9.
The small building was
ruled a total loss and
iapproximatley half of the'
thousands of x-rays stored
there were likely damaged or
destroyed. The x-rays were
part of medical records' for
thousands of inmates in
-Florida Department of
Corrections facilities in north
Florida.
According to a report by the-
Gainesville Sun's Karen
Voyles, DOC's; Region II.
Director Mark Redd stated the
fire may have been the result
of an electrical malfunction.
The facility went into a state
of lock-down for several hours'
after the fire was reported at
approxiamtely 2 p.mf. Lobk-
down is normal procedure for


any correctional facility in an
emergency situation.
The portable building was a
14-by-30-foot building located
near RMC's hospital. It was
used for storage.
DOC spokeswoman Gretl
Plessinger said that inmates do
not normally' go into the
building and the one staff
member assigned to work there
was not there when the fire
broke out.
The Union County Fire
Department responded and
extinguished the blaze.
RMC Warden Timothy
Cannon said, "I'd like to thank
Union County. and Lake Butler
fire departments as well as our
staff for their quick response
and professionalism in
handling Monday's fire. While
the small building was a total
loss, we are thankful no one

Florahome to host

Iron Horse marathon


- ... ,S', ',

The Bradford High School band students selected for Wells, Don Davis, Cherie Perkins, Chelsey Hamby,
the North Florida Honor Band were: (back, I-r) Houston (front, I-r) Jennifer Pharis, Patricia Carney, Rebecca
McClain, Courtney Brown, Marjorie Carney, Kenny Merrill and Rachel Baier.


BY JAMES WILLIAMS'
Monitor Editor
On Feb 21, approximately
85 ultra-marathoners will
descend on Florahome for the
4th annual Iron Horse 100-
mile endurance race. Ultra-
marathoners not only race for
distance, but rough terrain is
part of their endurance
challenge.
The race will be run on parts
of the undeveloped Lake
Butler to Palatka Rail Trail, a
part of the Florida Greenways
and Trail system. The race was
first held in 2006 on the
Jacksonville-Baldwin Rail
Trail.
Race Director Chris Rodatz
said he had originally
investigated a Florahome to :
Lake Butler race, but found
sbme 'undbveloped parts along
the trail either unsafe, like the
Putnam Hall area, or otherwise
impassable.
"The Twin Lakes Park
section in Keystone Heights
would have been. a perfect
place to start," Rodatz said.
For the past two years the


race has been held in Orange
Park but officials recognized
that since it was established as
a Rail Trail run, the Lake
Butler-Palatka unimproved
Rail Trail would be a perfect
venue. In conjunction with the
100-mile event, which runs for
24 hours, there will also be a
50-mile race and a 100K race.
Rodatz, an Orange Park
resident, is a veteran of the
Vermont 100-mile, Old
dominion 100- and the
Western States 100-mile
Endurance Runs, he said last
week.
"Thanks to the support of
the Department of
Environmental Protection,
Office of Greenways and
Trails we are able to showcase
the Florida Rail-Trail system.
The Office of Greenways and
Trails felt that an event of this
type would -.be perfect to
showcase not only Putnam
County and Florahome but
alsp the Lake Butler to Palatka
Trail,"_ said Rodatz.

Hildreth said she hopes the

Concern for
neighbor's
health ignored
Dear Editor:
I called Starke Police
Department last week, asked to
speak to Chief Johnson, who
was not in, and was put
through to Officer Warren. I
voiced my concerns to him
about my neighbor, John
Russell. I had not seen him in
over two weeks. Officer
Warren asked me if I was
smelling anything. I told him
no. He told me to call back
when I did.
Our mail carrier voiced his
concerns to me Saturday about
John. John had not taken his
mail out of the box in over two
weeks. Today (Sunday, Feb. 8)
a neighbor and I were
discussing John. None of us
had seen him in over two
weeks. My neighbor had a
friend visiting him. She said,
"Do not call police, call the
fire department," which I did.
Soon there were six police cars
here, which was overkill. I just
needed a wellness check on
John. One officer went in
through a window. John was
found inside, dead all this
time.
Chief Johnson, you need to
give Officer Warren lessons in
doing well-checks and dealing
with citizens when they call
with concerns. I do not call
law enforcement just to have
something to do. I (and most
everyone) really need them
when we call.
Marba Whittle

Note: When questioned
about this incident, Capt. Barry
Warren with the Starke Police
Department stated Tuesday
that SPD officers had checked
on Russell when Mrs. Whittle
had called on a date prior to
the one mentioned in the letter.
Warren said officers were
told by area residents at the
time that Russell thought he
-might have active warrants for
his arrest, and would probably
not answer the door. Russell
did not answer at that time, but
'2Warren said a neighbor has
-since told officers that he saw
'"Russell after the date officers
checked on him.
Warren said officers had
also been -told by neighbors
that family members-who
were the property owners-
might be trying to get Russell
Sto vacate the house and felt
that might be another reason
he would not want to answer
the door.
He said that when Whittle
called on the date mentioned in
the letter, officers were not
aware that Russell's mail had
been piling up, or that
neighbors thought they had
heard a shot fired in the
niehgborhood prior to that
time.
He said no family member,
not even the property owner,
had contacted the police, so
officers did not have
permission to enter the home.
He said without permission


and without probable cause to
think something was wrong,
officers could not force entry
into the building.
He said he mentioned the
possibility of a bad smell as a
circumstance that would
provide officers with probable
cause to enter the residence.

Kudos to our
animal shelter
Dear Editor:
I recently decided to get a
pet. I thought about going to
Gainesville, called, and found
out the procedure for adopting
a pet. I had to complete an
application and wait for it to be
reviewed and then pay $100
for an animal.
.1 hadn't heard of anywhere
around here that you can adopt
abandoned animals, but at the
last moment, decided to call
our pound. It's listed in the
phone book as Animal Control
under Bradford County. I
talked with a very pleasant,
well-informed employee,
Tracy. The fee for adopting is
only $25. The facility is small,
but clean and the animals are
well cared for.
You sign a paper agreeing to
spay/neuter your pet within 30
days and have to verify this. I
was given a brochure for a low
cost organization that comes to
Bradford County every so
often. I even received a
documented history of the
animal since they received it
with helpful notes about the
animal's personality and a
record of any vaccines it had
received. The animal was also
weighed and de-wormed.
I chose a kitten. It's healthy
and energetic. I'm impressed!
Very little red tape and quality
work. Thanks.

Commissioner
overwhelmed by
community
support
Dear Editor:
As we all know, times are
troubling .7 seems that.all we
hear 'or rbed is 'dbm~'"and
gloom. --with. our-'--spiraling
economy and uncertainty of
what's to come. However,


Page 4B


there is an occasional ray of
light that shines through --the-
clouds, making us sit back and
realize that not all in this world
is bad.
I have recently seen this first
hand at the O.J. Phillips
Recreation Complex in Union
County. I have witnessed a
true sense of community,
volunteering and pride that
seems to be common place in
this county.
Our community has pulled
together to take a negative
situation of not having the
recreation center's new
concession stand and ball field
additions ready for the new
baseball season and provided
overwhelming support in the
area of free labor and materials
to get the job done. I am happy
to report that as of this writing,
there were no additional costs
to the county to complete the
center which was originally
estimated at more than
$10,000. The only thing
lacking as of this writing is
two concrete handicap pads for
Those in wheelchairs to watch
the ball games.
The Department of
Corrections has gone above
and beyond in assisting with
construction, labor, grounds
maintenance and much, much
more. I especially thank RMC
Warden Tim Cannon and
Assistant Warden Chris
Southerland as well as -all
those in their charge, many of
whom humbly said they did
not want to be named for what
they had done for our
community.
In addition, the Union
County School Board stepped
up to .the plate as they always
do and volunteered numerous
man hours and materials. I
could not begin to list the
parents of players and even
those without players who
have so unselfishly given their
time and effort to see this
complex completed.
To see our community come
together and work so diligently
for our young people is enough
to make anyone proud. God
bless Union County and those
who make it such a special
place to live.

and 9 a.m.-6 p.m. Saturday,
Feb. 21, at the Bradford
County Fairgrounds, rain or
shine.
Admission to the contest,
which is sanctioned by the
Florida Barbecue Association,
is $3.
Organizers expect 25 to 30
professional teams to compete
in the cook-off. Local
organizations are encouraged
to field teams, as well. Each
team has five people and can
represent churches, fire
departments, schools,
corrections officers, clubs,
police or sheriffs personnel,
Businesses or other groups.
Amateurs compete against


amateurs, and there are cash
prizes, ribbons and trophies to
win. Teams can -make money
by selling their barbecue after
the judging, with a split going
to the SFC Scholarship fund
for Bradford County students.
There's also a "dessert or
anything strawberry" category
in the contest. Since Bradford
County has a reputation for the
sweetest strawberries this side
of heaven, that's a good reason
to dust off those family recipes
and go for a prize.
Lots of other family-fun
activities will be happening at

Store robbed
second time

in one week
The Kangaroo convenience
store at the corner of C.R. 233
(Morgan Road) and S.R. 16
was robbed on Feb. 9 for the
second time in six days.
The first robbery occurred
Feb. 3 and resulted in a high-
speed chase that ended with
the suspect dead as the result
of a vehicle crash.
According to Capt. Brad
Smith of the Bradford County
Sheriff's Office, the second
robbery happened at about 11
a.m. and this suspect also fled
the scene. However, this
suspect was apprehended.
Tajh Oneal Williams, 17, of
Starke was charged with armed
robbery,by BCSO deputies.
Smith said witnesses stated
Williams first entered the store
on Feb. 9 for a brief period and
left without buying anything.
A short time later, he allegedly
returned to the store wearing a
ski mask and brandishing what
appeared to be a machine
pistol, like an uzi. He allegedly
demanded money from the
clerk, who complied, with his
demands.
Witnesses said the suspect
then left the store on foot and
travelled in a southbound
direction.
BCSO deputies responded
and civilian bystanders pointed
them into a field about a mile
south of the store. The suspect
had apparently been travelling
by bicycle, but had abandoned
it and began running across the
field. Smith said Williams
apparently also lost his pants
while jumping the fence.
BCSO detectives Kevin
Mueller and Brian Davis
pursued the suspect and caught
him a short time, later. They
also recovered the firearm he
used, which turned out to be a
plastic toy.
The store clerk ,identified
Williams as the suspect and he
was booked into the Bradford
County Jail.

Nov. 25 with armed robbery
by Clay County Sheriff's

relation to the incident.
On Feb. 4, Israel Manuel
Drago, 20, of Keystone

home invasion robbery by
CCSO Deputy E.W. Howell.
According to reports on the
home invasion incident,
Hoilman and Drago allegedly
went to a home on S.R. 100 in
Keystone Heights on Nov. 21.
The victim said Hoilman
entered the back porch and
knocked on the door. When the
victim opened the door, Drago
.allegedly also entered the
porch wearing a blackmask
and brandishing a gun.
The victim said both
suspects demanded money -and,
ordered him to lie down on the.
floor. The victim refused to lie
down and Hoilman allegedly
punched him on the forehead,
causing a large bruise and a
lump.
The victim then gave
Hoilman $85.
The victim later picked
SHoilman out of a photo lineup
and he was arrested. During
the ensuing interview,
Hoilman named Drago as his
accomplice. A warrant was
issued and Drago was arrested.
Upon his arrest, .Drago
confessed to being involved in
several automobile burglaries
in the Keystone Heights and
Melrose areas. In one incident,


two electronic surveying
devices were stolen from a
truck. The devices were valued
at $7,500 each, so a charge of
grand theft was added to those

responded to a disturbance call
Feb. 5 in Lake Butler.

told by the victim that her
boyfriend had been extremely

stated that Crawford had been
at her house, but had run out

Deputy Shane went to the
rear of the trailer, but found it
locked and found no evidence
that anyone had exited
recently. Deputy Shane then
looked through a window and
saw someone crawling on the
.floor through the rooms of the
trailer.
The property owner let
Deputy Shane into the trailer
and he allegedly found
Crawford attempting to
conceal himself behind the
bedroom closet door. Deputy
Shane had his Taser drawn and
said he ordered Crawford to
place his hands where they
could be seen and come out
from behind the door.
Crawford came out from
behind the door, but allegedly
continued to come toward the.
deputy, refusing to obey,
Shane's' repeated orders to stop
and stand still.
Deputy Shane used his taser
and placed Crawford in
handcuffs.
Crawford was given a
medical examination and then
booked into the Union County

Tigers defeat Indians


again to claim district title


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
Sharmaine Couch and
Jamika Ruise came up big in
the fourth quarter for the
Union County girls' basketball
teqm, complementing
teammate Amber Stewart's
game-high 23 points and
helping lead the Tigers to a 59-
42 win over Keystone Heights
in the District 6-3A
championship game played
Feb. 7 in Keystone.
It is the second straight
district championship for the
Tigers (20-4), who beat
Keystone last year in the
tournament finale, as well.
"It feels great," said Couch,
one of the returners from last
year's team. "I give all the
credit to my lord and savior
Jesus Christ, my teammates
and my coach."
The Tigers will now host


Williston (14-9) in a Region 2
'quarterfilial game tonight, Feb.
12, at 7 p.m. Keystone (13-13),
as the district runner-up, will
travel to Gainesville to play
P.K. Yonge. P.K. Yonge (24-
0) won the District 5
championship by defeating
Williston 56-23.
Union held a three-point
lead over Keystone early in the
fourth quarter before going on
a 9-0 run. Ruise played a big
role in that, scoring on an
assist from Lashae Mitchell
and creating baskets for
Khadijah Jones and Ashli
Watkins with steals..-
Down the stretch, it was
Couch who got it done for the
Tigers. She went 7-of-8 from
the 'foul line in the final 3':36
and scored a total of nine
points during that span. .She
finished the game with 15
points.


It was Stewart, though, who
carried .the Tigers up to that
point. She scored 18 points in
the second and third quarters.
The rest of the team scored just
six points during that span.
Stewart scored six points in the
final 1:26 of the first half to
keep the Tigers within three,
then had eight points during a
12-0 run to open the second
half.
Union forced Keystone into
committing several turnovers
in rallying to take the lead. A
steal by Mitchell led to a
basket by Couch, while
Stewart scored following her
own steal to put the Tigers up
33-26. Stewart followed that
up by hitting a jumper after a
backcourt turnover. She then
made both free throws after
she was fouled in'the act of

10 Bradford wrestlers-


advance to regional tourney


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
Shawn Boyette, Billy
Brooks and Casey Hines were
the champions of their
respective weight classes and
will bejoinedby giben of their
teammates at ',this week's
regional meet after their
performances at the District 2-
A meet, which was held Feb. 6
in Crawfordville.
"They wrestled their tails
off," Bradford head coach Joe
Van Vactor said. "The
freshmen and sophomores
stepped up and the seniors and
juniors did what was
expected'."
Bradford's three district
champs now have a combined
record of 109-6, with seniors
Brooks and Hines continuing
to add to their career total,
which has surpassed 100 for
each.'
Brooks and Hines, who are
eyeing a third, straight trip to
the state finals, repeated as
district champions in their
weight classes, with Brooks
now having won the district
title three straight years. He
pinned Suwannee's Bryan
Wainwright in 5:22 in the final
match of the 140-pound class.
Hines remained undefeated,
but he had a bit of'trouble in
the championship match of the
215-pound class, Van Vactor
said. However, Hines
eventually took.a 20-8 major
decision over Suwannee's
Filmore McMillan.'
Boyette, a junior, fell one,
win short of winning the
district championship in the
160-pound class last year. This
year, Boyette pinned
Suwannee's Logan Register in
under four minutes to win the
championship.
Bradford senior Logan
Johnson finished as the runner-
up in the 285-pound class. He
was pinned by Suwannee's
Jamie Alvardo in the
championship match.
The top four wrestlers in
each class earned the right to
participate in this week's
Region I tournament, which
will be hosted by Bradford
High School Friday and
Saturday, Feb. 13-14. Joining
Boyette, Brooks, Hines and
Johnson will be Bradford

Mike Hammonds w'ai 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
Bluetown. He is 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 went to 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 bom. 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. M

'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 summer 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 thai 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.

BMS teams claim conference trophies


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
Same record. Leadership
from returning eighth-graders.
Same opponents in the
Suwannee Middle -School
Athletic Conference
tournament.
The boys' and girls'
basketball teams at Bradford
Middle School were similar in
several ways this year,
including the way they each
ended their seasons, by
holding aloft trophies in
celebration of finishing as


conference champions.
As boys' head coach Chad
Farnsvorth put it, it was nice
to see "happiness and big
smiles" for a change. The
boys' team had played for the
conference championship the
last two years under
Farnsworth's leadership, only
to come up short.
This year, Bradford defeated
Chiefland.31-18 to win its first
SMAC title since 2005.
That capped a season that
was pretty much a carbon copy
of how things went for the


girls' team. Each team went
undefeated against conference
foes, compiling overall records
of 11-2. The two losses for
each team came against the
same non-conference
opponent-Lakeside of
Orange Park.
Each team played Lake
Butler in the semifinal round
of the SMAC tournament.
Then, like the boys, the
Bradford girls' team played
Chiefland for the
championship. The girls won
by a score of 37-8 to win their


'first title since 2003.
Girls' coach Sharon Thomas
said her team's success this
year was a total team effort,
but it was the trio of returning
eighth-graders Lakia Bright,
Taquandra Diggs and Nicole
Jenkins that really led the way.
Those three grew so much
since playing in sixth grade,
maturing as individuals and
basketball players, Thomas
said.
"I'm going, to miss them
next year," Thomas said.
Bright scored, 22 points in
the rout of Chiefland. It was
the same point total she had in
a much- tougher semifinal
game.
The Hurricanes were tied
with Lake Butler 22-all
heading into the fourth quarter
before outscoring the Tigers
14-3. Thomas said the
momentum of the game turned
when Wilisha Griner hit a 3-
pointer from the corner.
Bradford then. turned up the
defensive pressure, forcing
turnovers that led to layup
opportunities.

Mount Dora ended the
Keystone Heights boys' soccer
team's season in the first round
of the regional playoffs for the
second time in the last three
years, defeating the Indians 1-
0 in a Feb. 5 quarterfinal game
played in Mount Dora.
The game marked the third
time Keystone and Mount
Dora have hooked up in the
regional quarterfinals. Each
game has been a shutout, with
the Indians winning 1-0 in
2006 and the Hurricanes


winning 2-0 in 2007.
This year's game was
scoreless until the 46'h minute,
when the Hurricanes' Nick
Kuerth scored a goal off of a
header after the Indians had
just made a save on a corner
kick.
Mount Dora (14-5-4) played
Pierson Taylor in a regional
semifinal game this past
Tuesday.
Keystone, which was
making its seventh straight
appearance in the regional
playoffs, ended its season with
a 10-15-2 record.

BHS boys get big


wins over UC, KH


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
A second win by double
digits over Union County this
season and a 34-point win over
Keystone Heights were
highlights of the last week of
the regular season for the
Bradford boys' basketball
team.
The Tornadoes won their
second and third straight
games by double figures in
defeating Union and Keystone
by a combined 54 points.
Earlier this season, Bradford
defeated Union by 16 points.
On Feb. 3 in Lake Butler, the
Tornadoes won by 20, thanks
to a big third quarter in which
they outscored the Tigers 22-4.
That stretched a seven-point
lead into one of 25 points.
Darrin Blye and Dannerius
Sheffield, who scored 17 and
15 points, respectively, each
made three 3-pointers for
Bradford. Markael Moore also
scored in double figures with
10 points, while Eugene Blye
added nine.
Union was led by Alvin
Jernigan, who had 14 points.
The Tigers also got nine points
from Darius Corbitt.

"She got a lot of rebounds
for us," Thomas said, adding
that Lennon really came into!
her own toward the end of the
season.
The boys' team was able to
get contributions from
everyone this season.
Farnsworth said every player
saw action in every game,
something that's important for
a feeder program for Bradford
High School. However, .like
the girls' team, a core of-.
returning eighth-graders was
key to this year's success.
Farnsworth referred to
Deontrd Burch, Deon Aldridge
and Justin McBride as his "big
three. Farnsworth described
them as "superior athletes"
who were not fazed by which
player had the better game.
"They shared the ball so
well and-they were unselfish,"
Farnsworth said.

BHS rides defense to
win over Kesytone
When Bradford first played
Keystone this season, the
Tornadoes won by just four
points.
It was a different story Feb.
5 when Bradford, with six
players scoring at least eight
points, defeated the visiting
Indians 72-38.
Keystone (11-15) got off to
a good start. Dalton Campbell
hit two straight baseline
jumpers to give the Indians an
11-5 lead, but Bradford closed
out the first quarter with eight
straight points. Eugene Blye
had four of those points,
scoring on layups following
Keystone turnovers.
Turnovers hurt the Indians,
who had no answer for
Bradford's defensive pressure.
Keystone turned the ball over
on its first eight possessions of
the second quarter as the
Tornadoes built a 26-11 lead.
Keystone had just one field
goal in the quarter.
Moore, with eight points in
the fourth quarter, led
Bradford with 14 points. The
Tornadoes had double-figure
scorers in Eugene Blye (13),
Tramaine Harris (12) and
Darrin Blye" (10), while
Sheffield and Yakeem Griner
each had eight points.
Campbell scored 10 points
in the second half (the rest of
the team had 11 points) to
finish with a team-high 14
See BHS, p. 10B


The team was also led by
another returning eighth-grader
in Eddie Allen and returning
seventh-grader Kenny Dinkins.
Farnsworth said Allen, in
particular, made great strides
as the season progressed.
"Toward the end of the
season, Eddie Allen really
came 'out of his shell, stepped
up and played with a lot of
confidence," Farnsworth said.
In'. the', semifinals of the
SMAC tournament, Burch
scored 21 points 'as the
Hurricanes defeated Lake
Butler 42-21. The
championship game against
Chiefland was a tight contest
early. At one point, the
Hurricanes trailed 5-4.
Bradford eventually began
pulling away, though. By the
third quarter, the Hurricanes
had built a 27-14 lead.
Thus, Bradford captured a
championship that had just
been out of reach in- recent
years. That's exciting, to be
sure, but Farnsworth said what
he really appreciated about his
team this year was how the
players carried themselves.
They acted like gentlemen, he
said, who represented the
school and Bradford County in
a positive manner, win or lose.
"Sportsmanship is
something we really
emphasize," Farnsworth said.

shooting following a steal by
Couch.
For the game, Keystone had
approximately 40 turnovers.
"Defense wins games,"
Couch said.
Solid free-throw shooting
doesn't hurt, either. The Tigers
shot 65 percent from the foul
line, making 22-of-34
attempts. Couch and Stewart
combined to go 18-of-22 from
the line.
Two Keystone starters
fouled out of the game,
including Karleigh Smoak,
who picked up her fifth foul in
the last minute of the third
quarter. Smoak, who finished
with eight points, was in foul
trouble early, picking up her
second foul at the 4:12 mark of
the first quarter. (Conversely,
Stewart was -whistled for her
second foul in the first quarter
as well, but she never earned
another.) i
Stewart finished the game
with a double-double, grabbing
11 rebounds, while Mitchell
had a game-high seven assists.
Keystone's Morgan
Maxwell had a game-high 14
rebounds.
It was a rough start for the
Indians, who turned the ball
over on seven of their first
eight possessions. A 3-ppinter
by Watkins, who finished the
game with 11 points, helped
the Tigers take a 7-0 lead.
Smoak and Chelsea Harvin
finally gave their team a spark
with consecutive 3-pointers
that pulled the Indians within
one. Harvin was then fouled in
the act of shooting after the
Tigers had committed a
backcourt turnover. She made
both free throws to give the
Indians a lead that they would
maintain throughout most of
the first half.
Keystone built a four-point
lead after Maxwell grabbed a
defensive rebound and. passed
the ball the length of the court
to Shannon Gray, who scored
on a layup. A backcourt steal
- by Union's Mitchell, though,
led to a layup by Watkins,
making it a two-point game
going into the second quarter.

Tigers were able to retake the

technical foul on Couch, made
a free throw, which was
followed by scores by Smoak
and Maxwell.
Gray scored four points
down the stretch, but Stewart's
six points helped the Tigers
stay close as the two teams
went into the locker room at
the half. Four of Stewart's
points came at the foul line.
She was 6-of-7 from the line in
the first half- and 9-of-12
overall.
The Indians did not muster

half with the exception of
Harvin. She scored 11 of the
team's 18 second-half points
and finished with a team-high
17.
Harvin, after Union built its
S11-point third quarter lead,
scored on layups on
consecutive possessions,
receiving passes from Gray
and Meghan Zinkel as she cut
to the basket, before draining a
trey with 50 seconds left in the
quarter, pulling Keystone
within 37-34.
Another basket by Harvin
early in the fourth quarter kept
it a three-point game before
Union pulled away with its 9-0
run.
If Union defeats Williston in
the regional quarterfinals, it
will host the winner between
Keystone and P.K. Yonge

Taylor to

advance to

semifinals
BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
It was a slow start, but the

team still did not have much
trouble with Pierson Taylor,
defeating the Wildcats 53-29
in the quarterfinal game of the

which was held Feb. 10 in
Keystone Heights.
The' Tigers missed eight of
their first 10 field-goal
attempts and did not score
until approximately halfway
into the first quarter.
Isaac Johnson came off the.
bench and gave the Tigers a bit
of a spark. He hit a jumper at
the end of the first quarter on
an assist from Quientin
Johnson to put the Tigers up 6-
4. Isaac Johnson then made a
3-pointer to get things started
in the second quarter.
Quientin Johnson then took
his turn,* finding the basket on
a floater along the baseline,
then grabbing a defensive
rebound and finding Kendall
Wright downcourt for a layup
and a 15-4 lead.
The Tigers led by 15 at the
half and got off to a quick start
in the third quarter when Chris
Alexander and Adam Cason
each hit a 3-pointer. Shamari
Holland later hit a trey before
the Tigers closed out ,the
quarter by outscoring the
Wildcats 6-1. Wright's layup
at the buzzer gave Union a 42-.
21 lead.
Alvin Jernigan had
consecutive layups to put the
Tigers up by 25 early in the
fourth quarter. The quarter also
featured three field goals by
Quientin Johsnon-one of
which was a 3-pointer.
Johnson finished the game
with a .team-high 11 points.
Darius Corbitt added eight
points.

Continued from page 7B


Couch and Amber Stewart
combined to score 25 points in
the first half. Stewart finished
the game with 12 points, eight
of which were scored in the
second quarter.
Keystone, like Union,
excelled defensively, creating
many turnovers. However, the
Indians never really seemed to
get in synch offensively with
the exception of the final 2:15
of the first quarter. in which
Keystone had four field goals
and nine points. (The Indians
had I1 field goals overall.)
Crescent City turned the ball
over 11 times .in the opening
period, with Smoak coming up
with three steals (she had 10
overall). The Indians, though,
missed several shots;
underneath the basket.
Keystone led 3-0 before


getting its first field goal-
from, Shannon Gray-with
2:15 to play in the first quarter.
Meghan Zinkel followed with
two consecutive baskets, while
Smoak had a layup following
her own steal, putting the
Indians up 11-0.
A free throw by Gray sent
the Indians into the second
quarter up 12-0.
It could have been a much
larger lead for Keystone. The
Indians were 4-of-I I frpm the
foiil line in the first quarter and
4-of-14 from the line in the
second quarter.
Keystone led by 15 at the
half, but was able to increase
that lead to 21 after scoring the
first six points of the second
half. Smoak had two baskets
during that stretch, one of
which followed a steal by
Gray.
Gray, who had a field goal
during the early third-quarter
run, finished the game with


nine points.
Smoak also added four
assists and four rebounds to
her totals, while Zinkel led the
team with 10 rebounds.
