 Notes
Review: The first issue of this ongoing weekly was issued July 26, 1879 under the title Florida Telegraph LCCN: sn95047402, published by William Wyatt Moore, a native Floridian, a staunch Democrat and an experienced newspaperman. He had previously worked for a newspaper in Tallahassee (FL) and had published newspapers in the Florida cities of Jacksonville, Lake City, Cedar Key and Pensacola. After publishing for a short time as the Weekly Florida Telegraph LCCN: sn95047403 and reversion back to the Florida Telegraph LCCN: sn95047404, the name was changed to the Starke (FL) Telegraph LCCN: sn95047405. In 1887, Sterling Moore sold a half-interest in the newspaper to I.C. Webb, who became sole owner within a few months and changed the name to the Bradford County (FL) Telegraph LCCN: sn95047406 in 1888. In 1893, Eugene S. Matthews, who had previously worked for newspapers in the Florida cities of Gainesville and Ocala, purchased the Bradford County Telegraph with Ben J. Farmer, who then sold his interest to Matthews in 1898. Eugene S. Matthews published the Bradford County Telegraph for forty years. During this time, he was also elected to the state legislature in 1904, 1907, 1911 and 1923. His son, Eugene L. Matthews, a graduate of Columbia University's School of Journalism, took over the publication in 1933, matching his father's record of forty years as publisher. On his retirement in 1973, he sold the paper to his sons-in-law, Bobby Ferguson and John Miller. The Bradford County Telegraph continues to be published ca. 2007 by John Miller, who also publishes the Lake Region Monitor LCCN: not known to exist and the Union County (FL) Times LCCN: sn95047168.

BCSO not

at fault in

shooting
On April 13, an Alachua County
grand jury conducted an inquiry
into the February vehicle pursuit and
shooting death of James Lester Estes.
No indictment was returned, and the
grand jury found the shooting of Estes
was a justifiable homicide.
The shooting occurred on Feb. 3 of
this year ending a prolonged car chase
that began in Bradford County. The
chase wound up in Alachua County
where Estes was fatally shot by
Bradford County Sheriff's Office Capt.
Eddie Boatwright.
Sheriff Gordon Smith also fired his
weapon during the pursuit when Estes
swerved his vehicle towards him as he
was diverting traffic from the danger.
Estes had robbed two convenience
stores on the date of the incident and
had an extensive criminal history prior
to his death.


Starke man confesses to armed robbery


After an extensive effort involving
several law e rfrcement agencies and
a Department of Corrections K-9 team,
the April 8 armed robbery of an elderly
Starke man was solved within hours.
According to a release from Starke
Police Chief Jeff Johnson, when Shamar
K. Barnes, 26, of Starke turned himself
in on the evening of April 8, two cases
were solved after he confessed to the
armed robbery and to a separate incident
on April 6 involving grand theft.
Barnes denied being involved in
a case of grand theft auto that also
occurred on April 6, although he was
charged in relation to that incident as
well.
The story began at 6:43 p.m. on April
8 when a call came in that an elderly
person had been robbed at knifepoint in
his own home in Starke.
The release said the 73-year-old
victim reported that he entered his
home and found a burglar inside. The
victim said the burglar had what the
victim believed was a knife. The victim


Shamar K. Barnes


said he surrendered $42 from his wallet
when the burglar demanded his money.
The victim gave police a description
of the burglar and said the burglar left
his property via a nearby grassy trail.
SPD officers teamed up with deputies
from the Bradford County Sheriff's
Office to establish a perimeter and
conduct a search. The K-9 team from
Union Correctional Institution was
called and they established a scent
track. They tracked the suspect from
the grassy trail to the Econo-Lodge on
U.S. 301 in Starke. Officers were able
to identify a room in the Econo-Lodge
where the suspect was believed to have
been.
Although he wasn't inside the room,
officers got the suspect's name from
witnesses who had observed him
running near the area. They were also
able to confirm that he had been in the
room recently.
The release.said the officers then
realized the suspect was the same one
who was wanted in connection with


an April 6 case of grand theft auto
and grand theft. Since the suspect was
already known to SPD officers, Chief
Johnson was able to make contact with
his relatives and inform them of the
incident.
Barnes then made contact with law
enforcement and stated that he wanted
to turn himself in.At 10:43 p.m., Barnes
turned himself in at the courthouse,
where SPD officers and BCSO deputies
were waiting.
Barnes was interviewed and,
according to the release, confessed
to the grand theft on April 6 and the
burglary and armed robbery on April
8. As part of his confession, he gave
information that led officers to recover
all of the items known to have been
taken from the elderly victim's home.
Barnes was charged with armed
robbery, grand theft auto, grand theft
and burglary of a dwelling. Total bond
was set at $115.000 and he remained in
jail as of press time.

Minor damage


from wind and rain


While a number of communities in
north central Florida have experienced
flooding and a couple even saw
tornadoes, it was trees that suffered
worst damage from wind and rain in
Bradford County earlier this week.
According to Bradford County
Emergency Management Director Brian
Johns, Starke received around an inch
of rain earlier this week while around
two inches fell in the Lawtey area.
There were wind gusts in Starke up
to 30 mph. Johns said, with winds in
Lawtey reaching upward of 45 mph.
Not much was reported in the way of
property damage, although a metal roof
was blown off a barn. hitting a nearby
vehicle and wind toppled a tree in the
Santa Fe collegee parking lot Tuesday
morning, causing some damage to a
student's car.
Tuesday morning also saw a number


of trees down in roads and driveways.
More than 30 calls were received and
Johns said firefighters did a great job of
getting around the county and clearing
blockages. The county road department
followed, cleaning up debris.
Sometimes trees took down power
lines with them, or the lines went down
by themselves ending up in roadways
and yards. In one case, a fallen power
line electrified a chain-link fence.
No injuries were reported, but
somewhere in the neighborhood of
500 residences were without power
sometime during Monday's storm or its
aftermath Tuesday.
Johns also said there was some crop
damage. Wind managed to damage
melon and strawberry plants in spite
of efforts to protect them, sometime
pulling plants right out of the ground,
he said.

Starke disappointed by FMPA meeting Williams appointed


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

There's little support from
other municipal members of the
Florida Municipal Power Agency
to change or dissolve the agency.
or so city officials found \\hen
they attended an executive board
meeting in Orlando on March
26.
Starke Mayor Wilbur Waters
called it a useless trip.
"'They don't care," he said.
again placing the blame lfor
Starke's high utility rates on the
power agency.
Waters said he asked .the
other members present at the
FMPA board meeting if they
\\'ere interested in exiting the
all-requirements contract.
Only Green Cove Springs and
Lake Worth answered in the
affirmative. The other municipal
member said they were happy
here they were and "they let it
he known," Waters said.
Waters said the consensus
was that mistakes were made
in hedging so much of FMPA's
natural gas supply, and members
are going to continue to pqy the
price.
Likewise, the millions Florida
Power and Light charged FMPA
for unauthorized use if its
transmission lines might be a
.mistake, but it's one that members
have paid for.
When member cities were
forced to pay a proportionate
share of the unexpected bill,
their power customers', bills
skyrocketed.
If investigation finds that
FMPA did not owe the money as
FPL claims, then members \will
be refunded their proportionate
share, but the investigation
could take as much as a year to
complete.
While, as some city
commissioners suggested.
FMPA did not go out and borrow
new funds to cover the bill, it has
offered some relief. FMPA has
$20 million it has borrowed but
not used, and it turned around
an offered to loan that money
to member cities as a way of
stabilizing their customers'


utility hills.
The only proviso is that
the money must he repaid by
December .
Starke city commissioners said
thanks, but no thanks.
Commissioner 'arolyn
Spooner wanted to know if there
was any recourse the city has if
it charges that FMPA has been
mismanaged. The city attorney,
Terry Brown. said there was
no such recourse except for a
majority of the FMPA executive
board to vote to fire senior
management.
Brown said the problem
Waters and Thompson found
is that the board members are
the m(micipal representatives
who have been there for years,
participating in the poor decision
making. They are generally
not elected officials, he said,
but people who are "wined and
dined" by FMPA.
"They're all good buddies-
simple as that." said Brown.
Of course the city of Starke's
representative is also unelected.
Operations Manager Ricky
Thompson represents Starke on
the executive board.
Brown suggested going to the
elected officials in the various
municipalities to gauge if
they are truly happy. receiving
power through FMPA or if they
believe they can get. better. rates
elsewhere.
There was some brief talk
about exiting the contract and
the $50 million city would have
to pay to do so, as well as selling
its share in the agency to other
members, something City Clerk
Linda Johns said the contract
would not allow.
Waters put an end to the
discussion.
"We can talk about this all
night long, it's not going to do a
bit of good because we can't get
out. we're locked in, and that's
where we're going to stay." he
said.
He and Thompson did hold out
a little hope that by late summer
or early fall.costs would decrease
as the percentage of natural gas
hedged declines.
The fuel adjustment was


already dow\\n from one month to
the next.
Statistics published h\ the
Florida Municipal Electric
Association sho\\ Starke's fuel
adjustment charge dropping from
January to February. It was down
by almost $17 for residents using
1,000 kilowatt-hours or less (if
electricity, taking a 1.000 kWh
bill from $157.90 to 141.08.
The electric rate is higher for
those using more than 1.000
kWh. For 2.500 kWh hill,the fuel
adjustment went from $204.88 iin'
January to.$162.83 in February. a
drop of more than $42. That took
a 2,500 kWh bill from $434.90
to $$392.85.
To further illustrate howL much
higher the city of Starke's rate is
for those using more than 1.000
kWh of electricity a month (the
average is said to be 1.500 kWh).
-there were 10 cities \\ho charged
more than Starke at the 1.000
kWh level in Eebruar'y.
At the 2.500 kWh level,
however. Starke was the most
expensive municipal electric
utility in the survey. (In January,
it w\as the most expensive utility
at hot~ levels.)
As for commercial power,
Starke was the most expensive
municipal utility in January
and the third most expensive in
February.
The release of the figures for
March will reveal if the fuel
adjustment charge continues to
drop. The February numbers
may reflect reduced electricity
consumption and the fact that the
city used rate stabilization funds
set aside, when the budget \\as
planned last year to help reduce
customer bills.
Without additional money to
replenish the fund. the city won't
be able to offer the same break
again. It's not something the city
can do every month, the cit'
clerk said.
"The object of the game is to
not use (as much electricity)."
said Johns. "You don't have to
pay for it if you don't use it."
commissionerr 'lTinsmy
(hastain wanted to know if
that fund could be replenished
b summer to help offset hills


statements. Five long-term goals
were established and strategies
were recommended to achieve
the goals.
"'This plan confirms our
commitment to providing
reliable power. at an affordable
price., in an environmentally
responsible manner. while also
being an exceptional employer,"
said Guarriello.
Meanwhile, the agency broke -
ground on the two-year addition
of a natural gas generator at
the Cane Island Power Park in
Osceola. The project carries an
anticipated $479 million price
tag.
Starke .is oue of the 15
communities that will be served
by the added generator.

Starke has entered a service
agreement for the Biochem
Neutralizer technology it is
adding to its sewer plant.
The city commission
approved the contract with BCR
Environmental, although the 20-
year term of the contract gave
pause to commissioners \vary
of long-term contracts given the
agreement entered with thecity's
current electricity pro\videryears
ago.
T'lhe agreement, though long.
can be terminated with 3( days
notice. The lengthiness of the
agreement is. in part, meunt to
provide some assurance to the
city that BCR \will be around to
continue managing the costly
system.
. The commission approwvd the
contract pending verification
from the city engineer that all
prec\iously agreed upon changes


had been incorporated into the
contract. According to BCR's
Nick Stoncstreet there were more
than a dozen comments from the
engineer, some of which were
minor, but they were resolved.
There'was some question, but
no answer, about 'why the city's
engi neerofrecord.GarrySneddon
of Stone. Joca and Associates. did
not attend the meeting to answer
questions about the agreement or
modifications made.
Commissioners said they
did not have time to review the
contract' prior to voting, but
agreed to move forward as a
contractor w\as waiting to get
started on installation of the
system.
The project is worth around
$1.7 million.'including the work
that went into preparing the
treatment plant and the upcoming
installation of the new b.iosolids
treatment system.

City, county will collect on

red light and other infractions

What you don't know might cost you


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

Though
there's little
the city of
Starke can do
to penalize
those who get
photographed
by traffic
cameras
running a
red light
and refuse to pay the $150 fine
they receive in the mail, the city
hopes people's ignorance of that
fact will have them paying up
anyway.
Police Chief Jeff Johnson
said he didn't realize the traffic
camera ordinance approved by
the city commission last month
contained little in the way of
"teeth" until it was published in
the newspaper.
Once cameras are in place,
drivers will be fined $150 by the
city for running a red light. Per
the ordinance, those who don't
pay the fine cannot be issued
building permits or occupational
licenses in the city limits,
penalties that would mqpn little
to the vast majority of motorists
who pass through the city each
day.
Johnson asked what the city's
recourse would be if "there's no
teeth" to the ordinance approved
by the commission in March.
"Is that the only teeth we have?
And if so, we need to realize
that's all we have to hold over
these people," Johnson said.
Terry Brown, attorney for
the Starke City Commission,
said enforcement remedies, are
limited when dealing with traffic
violations through municipal
ordinance, but he pointed out
that hasn't stopped people from
paying the fines in other cities
that employ camera technology
at red lights.
The downfall of citing people
under the state traffic code is
that the city doesn't receive most
of the. money. .Brot ji . The.
city's net ordinanc~te ' only
allows a vendor to come in and
install cameras at the traffic
lights, it allows the city to keep
the most of the revenue from the
citations issued because running
tlb red light is now a violation of
a inunicipal ordinance.
Brown said the advantage of
the city's system for motorists is
tat when they are caught running
a :red light and issued a fine,
no points accumulate against
their license and their insurance
premiums do not increase.
-The goal of that point system,
however, is to get dangerous
drivers off the road. Repeat
violations and point accumulation
can lead to license suspension.
Where the state traffic laws are
concerned, drivers often have the
option of expunging points from
their record by attending classes
ained at improving driver
safety.
The city of Starke, on the other
hand, cannot suspend a license
arid it won't be conducting classes
toeducate drivers either.
-As far has how things are
going to "play out" for the city
ofr- Starke when it comes to
motorists actually paying the
fi es. Brown said just look at the
statistics from other cities that
have installed cameras.
Johnson cited statistics that
sh-owed 70 more percent of those
fined pay' on the first notification.
and another 80-90 percent pay' on
the second notification.
According to Brown.
experience seems to show that
people pay because they do
not knoww what enforcement
mechanisms-or lack thereof-
the city has at its disposal.
"They treat it the same wa\
they \would normally treat any
type of citation from the police
department." Brown said. "They
don't really kno\v that their
license can't be suspended and
most of these people pay."
Johnson said safety\ was a
goal of establishing municipal
enforcement of traffic laws
and commissioners agreed.
Mayor Wilbur Waters said the
citl needed to do something to


slow down traffic and prevent
accidents.
"If they know the camera's iup
there, believe me they will (slow
down)." Waters said.
Deflecting criticism that the


cameras would result in more
rear-end collisions, Waters said
he would prefer to be rear-ended
than be involved in some of the
other accidents the city has seen.
With the cameras in place, the
city will be able to see who is at
fault, too. he said.
Brown called it a no-lose
situation for city government
since the commission doesn't
even have to pay for the cameras
the vendor would be installing.
(The vendor makes its money
back by skimming a profit off
the top of the citations issued.)
He said if people locally know
the cameras are there and avoid
running red lights, then that's a
good thing.
LCor m issioner Tom my
Chastain suggested posting signs
at either end of town so motorists
would know there are traffic
cameras in town (although not
specifically where) and pay more
attention to traffic lights.
Johnson was also under the
impression that the commission
was going to take action on
illegal parking, although the
ordinance approved last month
did not address parking.
While the commission has
established time limits for on-
street parking downtown, state
law prevents police officers from
writing violations except directly
to the driver. If no driver is
present, then no violation.
Johnson had talked to the
commission about passing a local
ordinance that would get around
that requirement and let officers
to leave citations on vehicles or
have them towed.
Commissioner Travis Woods
said that if the city is going to
go back and address parking it
could address other infractions at
the same time, like running stop
signs and speeding in a school
zone, if doing so would generate
revenue for the city.
"Then that money is going to
come to the city of Starke and
stay with the city of Starke, and it
S_.,i 't l'vego all go to.the'county
like it has been in the past."
o sM ' 0 A
Brown asked if the cameras
would "clock speed" as well. and
Johnson said they could, although
there doesn't appear to be a city
in the state using the cameras to
cite speeding on yellow.


Sheriff Gordon Smith was
present at the city commission
meeting and most of the money
generated by citations under the
state t traffic code goes to the courts
and other causes. He said he, too,
was looking at decriminalizing
certain infractions so citations
could be written by the sheriff's
department and the county could
keep the revenue.
Smith said state fine increases
mean the system has gone from
serve and protect to "serve and
collect." His problem with that
is that the local departments
who are issuing state citations
are receiving very little from the
state in return.
"I feel like if we can do this
and save our city money in this
economy, then that's what wve
need to be doing," Woods said.
"I think you're right." said
Smith.
The city commission approved
selection ofacontractorsubmitted
by Johnson as expected.
If an acceptable contract can
be reached with vendor Gatso
USA. it will be approved at
the next commission meeting
and the company will proceed
with studying intersections
and making recommendations
for how cameras should be
installed.
The policechief said there were
a number of lingering issues that
need to be addressed, like where
the cameras will be placed will
that he affected by intersection
improvements by the state at 301
and 100 possibly beginning later
this year.
.. There is also the question of
what to do about commercial
vehicles, since the law requires
them to display their tags on the
front of the vehicle. Johnson said
if cameras cannot be installed
to photograph the front of those
vehicles, then they are not going
to help the city.
According to a Gatso
representative, they've found 90
percent of those cited pay after
the first mailing. The number
goes up to 95 percent on the
second mailing and 98 percent if
the citation is turned over to their
collections department.

Many forms of individual
animal identification can be
used in the beef industry. Some
are used alone while others are
combined to ensure each animal
maintains its identity if one or
the other fails. Some of these
methods include fire brands,
freeze brands, ear tags. tattoos
and future developments.

Fire branding
Fire branding is very common
in the beef industry, but it's
very stressful to the animal and
damages the hide. Cattle that
have a fire brand often take a
price deduction when marketed
due to hide damage. Other
methods of identification can
successfully identify animals
without elevating stress levels or
affecting the quality of the hide.

Freeze branding

branding can use a relatively
stress free, non-hide damaging
method known as freeze
branding. Although two basic
protocols for freeze branding
can be used, many tricks and
techniques have been developed
to improve the quality of each
brand.
The effectiveness of freeze
branding is variable and results
are usually better for black and
red cattle than for white cattle.
Over time, these brands may
fade, so an additional form of
identification such as tattooing
should be considered as a
backup.

Ear tags and tattoos

ear tags coupled with tattoos to
identify their cattle. Ear tags are
very common, and the variety
of colors and styles may seem
endless.
Tattooing cattle is an excellent
backup method of permanently
identifying cattle regardless of

Few of the paint out artists' works include Melrose residents or any
human form. This set of whimsical clay figures by Kristen Englund was an
exception. It depicts-and named-regulars at Chiappini's.


Melrose paint

out draws

statewide crowd

BY JAMES WILLIAMS
Monitor Editor
Three may have been the
charm for the annual Melrose
Paint Out, a week-long arts
extravaganza designed by two
of the (now\\ three) Melrose art
houses.
The concept is fairly simple:
Invite a lot of artists to paint
around town for a week; then
have a big party and sell what
they produce.
The actual event is a little
more complicated than that.
The paint out also involves
finding a week's housing for
artists from far away. There's
registration to keep it organized,
advertising, getting homeowner
permission to set up easels in
back yards, catering the fancy
parties and hiring musicians to
perform.
Too bad that on the event's
third year, there was an


economic recession to deal
with for what is, after all. an
industry that lives and dies on
expendable income.
Never mind, the organizers
had a plan. The call' went
out to attract more artists than
ever--75 in all-from all over
Florida.
According to Dale and
Carol Bassett, the visitors wvho
showed up were welcomed in
Melrose, especially since many
shopped around town or spent
breakfast and lunch hours at
their Melrose Cafe and other
local dining spots.
But since the organizers
promised to hang at least five
of each artist's works, those
works had to be fairly small
to fit them all irto the two
Melrose galleries. Fortunately,
down economy or not, small
works are almost always more
affordably-priced than large
ones.
Painter Gary Borse, a
participating artist with
statewide recognition, said he
and others understood that it
wasn't the right time to paint
those room-sized masterpieces
that sell for .thousands of
dollars.

touches on his
Bellamy Road Gallery


So many visiting -M
artists alone would
have made .a nice a
crowd at the gallery Ass<
openings. But there t
were far more than on s
that: crowds at both
galleries spilled out
the door. Melrose
Bay gallery set up
its wine and cheese tables on
the front lawn to open up floor
space inside.
At Bellamy Road, the crowd
elbowed its way through the
exhibition, then settled down on
two outdoor porches. Gallery
Director Keith Bollum said he
\\as sure there were 300 people
or more attending the event at
his gallery during the evening.
"(The paint out) went very
well," said artist and organizer
Kathleen Wohie. "The
exhibitions are terrific. The
artists and the buyers are very
pleased."
Buyers. of course, were an
important part of the equation.
By year three, the event
attracted buyers and collectors
from St. Augustine to Palatka,
to Gainesville, to points south.
Some of those buyers may be

At a special meeting of the
Keystone Heights city council
last week, tiwo men were
appointed to the Keystone A irpark

a person to fill a third seat was

reappointed.

The discussion got heated

said Wise did not qualify to serve
on the board, since he resides in
Alachua County.
Wise responded that a citi
ordinance made allowance for
candidates with a Keystone
Heights address or living in an
adjoining county.
Bradley interpreted the
statement to say candidates must
reside in Ke stone Heights not
just maintain a post office box.
"The charter says 'live,
Bradle said. "It couldn't be
more clear."

if it were not for the residency
requirement she would vote for

Waters said he loved the kids in
the program, but said the budget
for recreation was getting out of
hand-more than $600,000 aside
from grant funds received. Most
of that is for personnel-related
costs.
"Where's the stopping point,"
hie said. "I'm for you, but we have
got to start looking where we can
cut some different things."
McMillian said some programs
have been cut, including ceramics,
flag football and soccer. Still in.

kiddie camp, the after-school
program and summer camp. Fees
have been raised for summer
camp, and they have gone without

The commission supported the
motion unanimously.
Johns later reported that with
half of the fiscal year still to
go, the city is already $162.000
short on funds due to lower than
expected revenue from sewer,
water, gas and property taxes.
Without additional revenue
coming in, that could double by


October, potentially necessitating
budget midyear budget cuts.
Johns passed out the
information and invited
commissioners to meet with
her personally if they had any
questions. After that, a workshop
may be held 'to discuss how the
city will act on the deficit.

FESTIVAL
Continued from Page 1A

Club, for example, will be selling
strawberry pancakes beginning
at 8:30 a.m. Saturday morning
at the clubhouse located at the
corner of Walnut and Jefferson.
And Whittle couldn't help
but mention a favorite, "Berry-
liscious," who dips strawberries
in chocolate and makes a
strawberry-brownie dessert that's
"totally sinful."
Lest you think it's all about the
berry, don't be fooled. There will
be plenty of variety. You won't
have to search hard to find Greek
food, for example, or Thai, or
barbecue, or Mexican, including
just about anything you can stuff
into a quesadilla, Whittle said.
In addition to around 100
vendors signed up for the event,
many downtown merchants
will be open and even out on
the sidewalk promoting their
businesses. Whittle encouraged
those who plan on visiting the
festival to stroll by or walk in and
support local businesses. (The
movie theater will also be open
Saturday evening and she said
Walnut Street may be opened for
traffic convenience.)
Returning vendors include
a gentlemen offering a diverse
range of exotic live plants and
Harper's Wood Shop, which
makes chairs, tables, chests and
more.
The Strawberry Festival is fun
for the whole family. Kids can
keep busy with free train rides',
a bounce house, bungee jumping,
face and body painting, a petting
zoo and more. Plus there will be
vendors with toys and other items
of interest for youngsters.
There will be a I in 500 chance
to win a motorcycle-a 3/4-scale,
street legal chopper. Tickets are
$10 and will be available at the
chamber of commerce building.
Only 500 are being sold, and all
proceeds benefit Main Street
Starke Inc.
Signs will be up to point visitors
to available parking areas. The
church lot next to First Baptist
will be available Saturday, but
will be closed to festival traffic
on Sunday.
Parking is free, and there's no
entry fee to get into the festival.
You can't beat that, Whittle said.
She thanked the city, police
department, local residents and
downtown merchants for their
suppiorl.

Senior

stimulus

payments to

start in May
By Linda Stern, AARP
The check is almost in the
mail. In May, retirees and other
Social Security beneficiaries
will get an extra $250 per person
from Uncle Sam as part of the
economic stimulus bill.
The so-called senior
payment-$250 for individuals,
$500 for couples who both
receive some Social Security
benefit-will go to retirees, older
veterans, SSI (Supplemental
Security Income) beneficiaries,
and people with disabilities.
Recipients won't have to fill
out a tax form or do anything--
unlike the stimulus rebate of
2008. They just wait for the
money to show up. They'll get
the money the same way they get
Social Security-either through
direct deposit or a check in the
mail.
Federal and state retirees who
don't receive Social Security
benefits also will qualify to
receive the payment but may
have to file 2009 tax returns to
receive it.
The $250 senior payment was
never included in the House-
authored draft of the stimulus
package approved in late January;
it wound up in the Senate bill
after being proposed by Max
Baucus, D-Mont., chairman of
the powerful Senate Finance
Committee. The provision also
was strongly promoted by Sen.
Sheldon Whitehouse, D-R.I.
AARP supported the measure
early on. In a letter to lawmakers,
the association argued that many
retirees would be ineligible for
workers' tax credits but were
in need of hardship relief. It
cited research showing that
older people tend to spend such
payments "immediately."
For more information, check
the SSA Web site, www.ssa.gov/
payment/.

Faith keeps Northam going despite prostate cancer


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Sta.f Writer
*Delmer Northam may not be
able to walk the survivors'
victory lap to kick off this
weekend's American Cancer
Society Relay for Life in
Keystone Heights, but that's
OK because if doctors'
diagnoses and statistics held
true to form, Northam would
not even be here to take part in
the event.
Northam, who has prostate
cancer, was told by two
doctors after his diagnosis that
men with the cancer could
expect to live seven to eight
years, provided the cancer had
not spread to other parts of
their bodies. Northam's cancer
had spread to other parts of his
body, but 15 years later, the
72-year-old Keystone resident
is still alive to talk about his


health.
Throughout that time,
Northam has endured surgery,
radiation treatments and
chemotherapy and trips to two
different cancer centers, yet he
and his wife, Barbara, have
gone on living life to its
fullest.
"It hasn't slowed us down,"
Barbara Northam said. "We
traveled to Alaska. We
traveled to Hawaii. We're not
people who sit down and just
say, 'Oh, me.'"
A big part of what has kept
the Northams going is their
faith. Delmer does not dwell
on the fact he has cancer. He
thinks of the extra time he's
been given here on .carth,
saying simply, "The Lord has
been real good to me."

traveled to the Moffitt Cancer

Center in Tampa, which began
some six or seven years after
his diagnosis, he was told by
one of the doctors there he had
already outlived his prognosis.
Northam's response? God
wasn't through with him.
It appears as if God intends
for Northam to attend at least
one more Relay for Life. This
year's Keystone event, which
will be held at the Keystone
Heights High School football
stadium, is scheduled to begin
Saturday, April 18, at 2 p.m.
and run through 8 a.m.
Sunday, April 19.
Northam has been involved
with the fundraiser for the
American .Cancer Society for
at least five years. Noel
Thomas, one of the event's
coordinators, said Northam has
been an excellent fundraiser
during that time, but Northam
has played another important
role in regards to the event-
he gives hope to others.
"That's one .of the reasons
why there are a lot'of people
involved with us," Thomas
said.
Northam's first year of

active
participant in
the American

Society's Relay

prostate cancer

participation made such an
impression on him that he said
he had to continue his
involvement despite whatever
state his health was in at the
time.
"It was quite impressive to
me to know that there were
people out there trying to raise


money to help me and
reaching out and trying to find
a cure for my sickness,"
Northam said.
Though he has had cancer
for the past'15 years, Barbara
Northam said for most of those
years, it was hard to think of
her husband as being sick.

"This is a man who used to
lift weights, run and climb
trees," she said. "He was very,
very active up until probably
two years ago."
It was Nov. 19, 1993, when
Delmer Northam was
diagnosed with prostate
cancer. Earlier that year, he
had open-heart surgery.
"You think you're in perfect
health," he said, "but you find
out that you're not."
That would seem to be quite
a turbulent year, but Northam
and his wife also experienced
the birth of two grandchildren.
"It was a bad year, but a
good year," Barbara said.
Delmer underwent surgery,
followed by seven weeks of
approximately 35 radiation
treatments. After a period of
years, his doctor admitted he
had done all he could for him
and recommended that he go
to a major cancer clinic. The
Taussig Cancer Clinic is
located in Cleveland, Ohio,
which Delmer decided to try
since his daughter lives there.
Doctors at the clinic, though,
told Northam there wasn't
much they could do for him.
He eventually returned home.
His doctor in Gainesville then
suggested he try the Moffitt
Cancer Center.
"They were very outstanding
and very cordial toward us,"
Northam said. "They just
welcomed us with open arms."
Northam and his wife
traveled back .and forth to
Tampa over the course of six
years. Eventually, though,
.Northam was told by his
doctor that the center had done
*all it'could do for him after
administering "many various
chemotherapy drugs. Northam
was part of a group of 10
patients accepted at the center
at the same time, but was the
only one who remained alive
at the end.
When the doctor informed
Northam of that bit of news,
Northam replied, "I've got
somebody who's helping me."
As someone of strong faith,
Northam said everything-is in

dies at


home


April 14
Lynn Marshall of Starke,
who has been an education'
leader and active community
member in Bradford County
for many years, passed away -
unexpectedly April 14.
According to family friends,
Marshall was at her home in
Starke recovering from injuries
sustained in a recent
motorcycle accident. The
injuries were not life-
threatening and friends said it
was believed she was
recovering well.
Marshall's,husband, Greg, a
teacher at Bradford High
School, had gone to the
couple's home at lunch time
and told friends she seemed
well, although in some pain
from the injuries. She took a
pain pill at that time and he
returned to work.
Greg Marshall told friends
he contacted Lynn via
telephone at about 3 p.m. and
found he could not understand
what she was saying. He called
911 and rushed home, but it
was too late.
There was no word on
services as' of press time
Tuesday evening.
Lynn Marshall was a teacher
to the core. Although an avid
stained glass artist and very
active member of the First
United Methodist Church, it
was always in the classroom
where, Marshall shone the
brightest. Students who
entered her classroom and any
parent of students who entered
could tell you how hard 'she
worked at helping children
learn.

Clay County Fire Rescue
has been awarded the Fiscal
Year 2008 Assistance to
Firefighters Grant from the
Federal Emergency
Management Agency and the
Department of Homeland
Security. This federal grant
program is designed for
departments to purchase
equipment that they have not
been able to afford to make the '
firefighters' job safer and
provide better protection to the
public.
The federal grant request for
$339,852 was submitted in
April of 2008. Clay County'
will receive.80 percent of the
grant request totaling
$271,882. Funds from the",
county will provide the
required 20-percent match of"
$67,970.

will use the funds to purchase
mobile data terminals (MDTs)
for front line fire and rescue

Fire rescue representatives
believe that the addition of the
MDTs will improve
communications as they have.

Community is family for Bowen during bout with cancer


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegra'h Staff Writer
She came from a Ifaily that
had no history of cancer, but in
a sense, but Iinda Bo\\en is
now a member of a family
composed of many members
who have been affected by the
disease.
Bowen, who works at the
Bradford County Sheriff's
office , was diagnosed with
breast cancer in late 2007. She
received tremendous support
from her immediate family, of
course, during surgeries and
treatments, hut her family
essentially grew to include
friends, co-workers and people
she had never met. She learned
that many people she had
known for many years had
dealt with cancer at some point
in their lives without her
knowledge.
"They were calling me and
encouraging me," Bowen said.
"It was great. People I didn't
know and had never met
would call me and come see
me. That's the joy of living in'
a small community. People
care about each other. They're
all like family."
Bowen and many of those
"family" members have been
raising money for the
American Cancer Society and
will take part in the
organization's annual Relay
for Life in Starke, which will
take place Friday-Saturday,
April 24-25, at the Bradford
High School track. (Relay
events are also scheduled for
April 18 in Keystone Heights
and May 15 in Lake Butler.)
"I helped last year with the
Relay for Life even though I
was going through chemo at
the time," Bowen said. "I
wanted to help again this
year."
Bowen will help by walking
as part of a team composed of
Bradford County Sheriff's
Office employees. On April 3,
visitors to the office were
greeted by delectable desserts
set up in the lobby, part of a
bake sale to raise money for
the American Cancer Society,
an organization Bowen can't
say enough good things about.
The organization provides
such things as books, pillows,
scarves and compensation for
mileage accrued because of

God's hands. When the doctor
at the cancer center told him he
would only live another six
months to a year, Northam
said, "Well, that might be true.
I don't know, but God is the
one who really determines
whether we go to heaven and
when we go to heaven."
If Northam lives through
July 22, it will mark one year
since he received that last
diagnosis of how long he has
to live.
"We made the six months,"
he said. "I think we're going to
make a year."


Bowen would essentially
sleep through the weekends
following the chemotherapy,
which she had on Fridays. She
would always return to work-
the Starke Police Department
at the time-on Mondays.
"I didn't lose very many
days at work," said Bowen,
who added the Starke Police
Department employees were
very supportive whenever she
did miss work.
Support-it was a big part of
helping her get through it all,
Bowen said. Though she
admitted the ordeal wasn't as
bad as she thought it was going
to be, she said it still wasn't
easy, ; ,', ;, .. ;;. . :
"If it wasn't for family,
friends, co-workers and my

strongly encouraged her

As important as God has
been for Northam during these
past .15 years, others have
stepped up and provided a
strong support system. Family
members, of course, have done
their part, while fellow
members of the Northams'
church-Trinity Baptist-have
also helped in any way they
could.
"We've got a wonderful
Sunday school class," Northam
said. "If you've got a need,
they'll reach out and meet that
need."

Northam also gives it through
his involvement with the Relay

said. "If I can't, I've got. a

Editorial/O p nior


Thursday, April 16, 2009 * Page 4B


Readers says
re-think camera
issue
Dear Editor:
The lead story in the
Bradford County Telegraph of
March 26, 2009, titled "Starke
Closer to Installing Cameras"
indicates the current city
commission is about to step
into quicksand and a previous
commission did when they
gave FMPA to the city The
city commissioners have only
looked at promised dollars
from having red-light cameras
installed. They need to remove
the blinders and consider what
it best overall for Starke and its
citizens.
The State of Florida enacted
a Uniform Traffic Code many
years ago to do away with
picayune city ordinances,
kangaroo courts run by city
judges who had no knowledge
of, or experience with the law
(other than their own arrests,
perhaps), and assure people a
hearing in a properly designed
court if needed. Now, our city
commissioners, in their
ultimate wisdom (or lack
thereof), are prepared to give
us a red-light ordinance with
appeals to the City Clerk. This
goes back to the days of city
judges who were mostly the
city mayors. Most of these
guys had no qualifications to
conduct any kind of courtroom
proceedings, their backgrounds
being anything from
neighborhood junk dealer to
the biggest drinker in the local
pool hall depending on who
could horns-woggle the voters.
Florida's legislature put those
days behind us and that is
where they should stay.
Out-of-towners, be they
traveling citizens or semi-truck
drivers, will not have to pay
the red-light fine based on a
city ordinance. Other states
simply will not recognize that
city ordinance as they do our
state's uniform traffic laws.
Many tractor trailers have
license tags that you will not
be able to identify the driver
because he simply picked up
that trailer some place and it
does not identify the tractor
driver. That leaves the burden
on the local citizen to pay the
fines based on an alleged
action that no police officer
witnessed.
Another issue is the pictures
of red-light runners. The
companies operating these
scams are located in distant
places and simply send
pictures to the local police
department. With modern
technology, they can simply
take a picture of every car
going through an intersection
where cameras have been
installed, then use their
computer technology to
.superimpose a red light on
every picture and send it to the
local police department which
has no real knowledge of what
actually happened. The
camera-owning company nets
'about 40% of the proposed
$150 fine so there is a strong
motivation on their part to
perhaps alter the pictures for
profit, Our local police chief
cannot allay this argument
because it is all done from far
away places and there is no
way to monitor the camera
company's behavior.
SAnother fallacy in their
argument is that it will reduce


accidents at the intersections.
A recent article in the
Gainesville Sun related the
facts that many communities
that installed these cameras
have found this not to be true.
While there may have been a
few less side-impact crashes,
there has been a significant
increase in rear-end collisions
resulting in serious injury to
drivers.
Wake up, Starke citizens,
and tell your city
commissioners to not give us
another bad decision bordering
on the one that gave us FMPA
and exhorbitant electric rates.
If they vote this in, then let's
come together and vote them
out.

Preserve the

arts in school
Dear Editor:
I am all in favor of A+
schools, however, I think
there should be a different
system, one based on
including the arts, not
eliminating them from the
schools.
Ken Robinson, in his book,
"The Element" talks about a
groundbreaking program in
Oklahoma called A+ schools.
This program emphasizes the
arts as a way of teaching a
wide variety of disciplines
within the curriculum.
Music, art and drama are
used to enhance the teaching
of math, science and
language arts.
The system encourages
collaboration between
teachers of various
disciplines as well as between
students, teachers and the
community. These schools
have shown greater gains in
.test scores than the school
system whose goal is "the
test." Our goal as teachers
should .be to, teach children
the job of learning. Instead,
we seem to teach to "the test"
and strike fear into their
hearts about passing the
FCAT.


The first things to go v
money is the issue are
arts. Music and art (if
school has any art at all)
eliminated to favor get
"back to basics,"--
science and reading.
We do not individual

. Charter
1 interpretation
needed
Dear Editor:
-(T.he. following is a copy of a
letter submitted to the
Keystone Heights City
Council)
As vice president of the last
vhen charter review committee, we
the voted unanimously to leave the
the charter the same concerning
) are qualifications of members of
tting, the airport authority.
hath, Four must be "from
Keystone Heights" and one
alize "from Bradford County" and
)t to one "from Clay County" and
can one "from the Florida National
ling. Guard."
hese Since the charter is a legal
o do document with a self-defining
:. . political boundary and only
sixth applies within the city limits,
read "Keystone Heights" would
f a necessarily mean within the
with city limits, otherwise it would
page have undefined legal
ular boundaries.
lot It is understood that you
bit asked the electorate for an
not interpretation of what is meant
My "from Keystone Heights" in a
She "non-binding" straw poll and
S they voted to interpret it to
on mean anyone who has "a home
hem mailing address of Keystone
ter Heights." Did that change the
tter charter? No, only the
we electorate changing the charter
ople in a charter amendment can do
we that-you know that..Heaven
ning only knows what the "non-
Is. I binding" "straw poll" was
igh meant to accomplish-it
was certainly is causing confusion
on a among the electorate, that it
set did.
luct Why did the electorate, who
host pay your salaries, vote to keep
was 4 of 7 members "from
no Keystone Heights". They
lose assumed as we did in the
the charter review committee that
was only tax-paying resident
vhat citizens of Keystone Heights
should maintain control of the
and airport so that no non-residents
hey could saddle us Keystone
ber resident citizens with a debt
t, it from the airport without our
hey approval. It is human nature to
01o. not care as much about losses
go if you don't have to pay for it
- and if.you are not a tax-paying
nust resident citizen of Keystone
lrts. Heights, you simply do not
ned have to pay.
the Now, if you interpret "from
)wn Keystone Heights" to be only a
for home mailing address, then (1)
We can someone who lives in
our Palatka but gets his mail at a
ove P.O. Box at the Keystone
the , - ..


* to
one
ose


Heights post office qualify
from Keystone Heights?
Now, if you interpret "from
Keystone Heights" to be from
only a home mailing address,
then I assume that same legal
logic can be applied to the one
member from Clay County,
that is someone could be a
resident citizen of Duval
County but have a home
mailing address in Clay
County and qualify for the
from Clay County membership
or (2) can they have just a
home mailing P.O. box in Clay
County but live in Duval
County?
Now, if you interpret "from
Keystone Heights" to be only a
home mailing address, then I
assume that same legal logic
can be applied to the one
member from Bradford
County, that is someone could
be a resident citizen of Union
County but have a home
mailing address in Bradford
County and qualify for the
from -Bradford County
membership. (3) Can they..
have just a home mailing P.O.
Box in Bradford County but
live in Union County?
Are you beginning to see
how silly and undefined this
"i'hterpretation" controversy
has become? A written
response to all these questions
would be appreciated because I
am confused.
I want to make it clear that I
am not concerned with what
person serves on the authority,
I am concerned that the
council seems to be searching
for a way to not follow the
charter. If you do not like the
charter, you can propose an
amendment to change it, that is
your prerogative.

I don't believe
in evolution!
Dear Editor:
I suppose there are other
people who feel the way I do.
When something bothers me, I
like to get if off my mind.
That's the reason I write to the
Telegraph often.
I believe a lot of people feel
the same way I do on some
matters and would be
interested in reading the
article.
No one can prove to me that
we evolved frorp monkeys. If
so, why haven't the monkeys
evolved? I can tell you why. In

LETTER
Continued from page 4B

preferences, especially if they
were different from yours. In
degrading one candidate or
party to highlight the
qualities of another revealed
in me a willingness to
manipulate facts in order to
gain desired results. The
freedom blanket covering
temper tantrums, degrading
remarks and narrow
mindedness is a tattered one.
I am therefore no better than
those I criticize. I simply
forgot people were more
important than my political
agenda.
I apologize to those I have
judged unfairly. Your
behaviors, choices and, yes,
even your lifestyles are not
mine to judge. I forgot that
the only true freedom
available to me is the
judgment of myself, not you.
My judgment fell on you
because sometimes I forget
I'm not perfect.
No, more honestly, I am
afraid to judge myself. If I
place all my prejudices,
agendas and faults under
examination, a flawed
individual would appear.
changee would be required
and, well, you know how
bothersome change can be,
especially when it's so much
easier to make you the
specimen needing a moral
microscope However, I do
want to change. A
relationship with you,
whether as an acquaintance
or close friend, depends on
this change.
I apologize to Christians.
Jesus said, "This is my
commandment: That ye love
one another as I have loved
you." (John 25:12. KJV) I
keep waiting for this love to
be activated. I see its
presence only in select places
or in specific situations or
with certain people.
I don't recall Jesus
designating specific places to
show his love or selecting
only people who fulfill
detailed criteria. Jesus
simply loves people, all
people. Interestingly enough,
the only humans capable of
pissing Jesus off were the
religious folks-those who
judged instead of loved.


('v.(a(/j Cardy Accepted


Unfortunately, I often see one
of those religious people
staring back at me when I
look in the mirror.
My apology to you, my
fellow Christians, is that I am
sorry I judge you when I, a
Christian by choice, fail to
love. I have misled other
Christians and non-believers
alike into believing God is a
god who shows favoritism.
demand righteousness and
sends people to hell for their
sins. When, if fact, he does
show favoritism-everyone
is his favorite. Righteousness
is a dirty rag and Jesus paid
for all sins, so why do I want
to keep putting him back on
the cross to pay for them
again?
I know without a doubt
that if I can put this "love"
concept into practice, I might
be able to give others a
glimpse of who Jesus really
is, not who I've created him
to be.
I apologize to God. I
misrepresent you almost-
every'day of my life. I have
placed you in a box that
contains everything I need to
build a god that resembles
me, not you. Now I know


tic

Itl

5r it',
tb t:


C; 11,

VISA


why people don't want to
know you; to believe in you.
If I were God, I wouldn't
believe in me. You love
people for who they are right
now, not after they've
changed or get saved.. I
forgot you loved me before I
loved you. Funny, what a
short memory I have.
Leo Tolstoy wrote,
"Everyone thinks of changing
humanity, but no one thinks
of changing himself." Alas, I
hope I'm doing more than
thinking about changing
myself. Thank you for
allowing me to apologize. I
know the value of an apology
isn't simply in the offering.
No, too many times, an
apology is only an excuse, a
Band-Aid covering a future
scar. What decides the value
of apology is what happens,
after an apology is giver.. In
my case, change is necessary.
So, if and when our'paths
cross, I pray the me you meet
is someone you will like,
someone who offers you a
moment's or more worth of
friendship in a critical,
judgmental world.

Brett Maddox gets
chance to play again
after dedicating his
life to serving God

BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
When someone with
tremendous athletic ability
decides to give up playing a
sport, it is only natural for
others to puzzle over that
decision.
Union County High School
graduate Brett Maddox did not
care what other people
thought. His only concern was
to please God, so when he
belie'e.d God wanted him to
give up baseball, he did so.
His obedience, he feels, has
now been rewarded as Maddox
is getting another chance to
play. He has signed with
Milligan College in Tennessee
after attending tryouts at the
school in January.
When next baseball season
rolls around, Maddox will
have been out of the sport for
two years. Though he willingly
gave it up, he has missed it.
"I've been psyched about
(playing again) for a while,"
Maddox said.
The 2007 Union County
High School graduate attended
a church youth camp in
Georgia following his
graduation. It was then, he
said, he came to the realization
he had been living solely for
himself. He wanted to dedicate
his life to serving God and
vowed that he would do
whatever God wanted him to.
What God wanted, Maddox
believed, was for him to give
up baseball and prepare
himself for ministry work.
"I had tell people tell me it
was a ridiculous idea to give
up baseball," Maddox said.
He prayed long and hard
before making the decision to
do just that. Not long after that,
Maddox would have had to
quit playing for Lake City
anyway as the school
disbanded its athletic program.
"I just took that as a sign I
did the right thing," Maddox
said.
Instead of taking to the field,
Maddox spent time taking
classes at Jacksonville Baptist
Theological Seminary,
attending seminars and
actually preaching in a few
churches to, as he said, "get his
feet wet." , ,,. , ,
As muchi as 'e 'love's to play
baseball, Maddox said it does
not compare to having the
opportunity to present God's
word. That, he said, can
change someone's life.
"Nothing feels better than
that," Maddox said.
He thought baseball was a
thing of the past, but then he
was asked to throw the ball
around with Brandon Davis, a
Union County High School
graduate who is currently a
junior at Milligan. Davis
suggested Maddox look into
playing at Milligan. Milligan, a
Christian school, afforded
Maddox the chance to pursue a
degree in youth ministry.
The chance to continue his
service to God while playing
baseball was a reward from


God for his willingness to give
up baseball in the first place,
Maddox said. He likened it to
a test of faith, much like what
Abraham went through when
asked to sacrifice his son.
Isaac.
Maddox said he made the
decision on Jan. 6 to pursue a
spot on the Milligan roster. He
attended team tryouts on Jan.
11 and signed a letter-of-intent
in February.
"I'm so proud of him,"
Union County head coach
Brian Tomlinson said. "I'm so
happy he's going back into it."
Maddox stood out as a
pitcher at Union County High
School, compiling an I1-1
record and a 2.10 ERA during
his senior year. Most likely,
though, he will play in the
infield at Milligan. Maddox
said he anticipates playing
mainly third base-the
position he played at UCHS
when not pitching-but thinks
he could also play some at first
as well as fill the designated
hitter role.
As good as he was as a
pitcher, Maddox may have
made a greater mark
offensively. He batted .451
during his senior year, hitting
seven doubles, nine home runs
and driving in 37 runs.
"We could use his bat in the
lineup right now," Tomlinson
said.
Tomlinson said Maddox has
some of the quickest hands he
has ever seen, which helped
make him such a success at the
plate. If he gets fooled on a
pitch, he's still quick enough
to get his hands around and hit
the ball with enough power to
drive it into a gap, Tomlinson
said.
"'o be honest with you,'
Tomlinson said, "there aren't
many times he gets fooled with
a pitch."
Despite the good numbers he
posted at UCHS, what really
stood out about Maddox was
his work ethic, Tomlinson
said. In fact, Maddox has been

baseball career at Milligan College. He is pictured

coach Nathan Meade (standing, left) and Milligan
assistant coach Joel Mangrum.


putting in a lot of time at the
lUnion County High School
facility, hitting in the cages
and preparing to play again.
"That's just Brett,"
Tomlinson said. "He's a hard
worker."
Milligan College is a
member of the Appalachian
Athletic Conference and
competes in the National
Association of .Intercollegiate
Athletics. The Buffaloes are
coached by Nathan Meade.
who is in his third year.
Milligan is currently 29-9 and
13-3 in the Appalachian
Athletic Conference. The
Buffaloes were 24-25 last year.
Maddox is one of 14 current
members of the Milligan 2009,
10 recruiting class.
Though he has not played in
a while, Maddox thinks he
won't have a problem getting


back into the game. He has
been brushing up on his skills
when no working at Davis
Express, but playing the game
is almost second nature for
him.
"I've done it for so long," he
said.
Tomlinson is happy to see
Maddox get another chance to
play, not just because he's a
quality baseball player, but
because he's also a respectful
and well-mannered person..
"It couldn't have happened
to a better kid," Tomlinson
said.

Whoever is winning at
the moment will always
seem to be invincible.

Tornadoes play well
at Kissimmee Klassic
Bradford won two of four
games, placing fourth out of 16
teams at the annual Kissimmee
Klassic, which was played
April 2-4.
The Tornadoes entered the
tournament on a five-game
losing streak and losers of
eight of their last nine games.
However, Bradford had nine
hits against St. Cloud pitcher
Samantha Gale, a sophomore
who was touted as perhaps the
best pitcher in Bradford's
bracket by the event's press
release, and defeated Pine
Castle Christian, the sixth-
ranked team in Class 2A and a
Final Four participant last
year.
"I don't know what it is
about that tournament, but they
always rise to the occasion,"
Bradford head coach Daniel
Davis said.
The overall play of the team
was improved, Davis said,
noting that if Bradford had
played Class 5A Tate a couple
of weeks ago, it very well
could have resulted in a 15-run
loss. At the tournament,
though, Bradford lost to Tate
by a score of 4-0.
"It was definitely the best
We've played all year long,"
Davis said of the team's
overall performance in
Kissimmee.
The, Tornadoes started off
the tournament against St.
Cloud on April 2, getting a
total of seven RBI from
O'Neal and Kiki Strong in a 9-
3 win.
Bradford went up 7-1 after a
four-run fourth 'in which
O'Neal and Strong drove in
two runs each. The inning
marked the second time in the
game O'Neal hit a two-run
double. She had one in the first
inning to put the Tornadoes up
2-0.
O'Neal finished the game 3-.
for-4 with four RBI, while
Strong was 2-for-3 with three
RBI. Tucker was 4-for-5.
Jones gave up no earned
runs (Bradford committed nine
errors), three hits and one
walk, while striking out five.
Bradford's second .game
included solid performances
again from O'Neal, Strong and
Tucker, while Jones gave up
just four hits and no earned
runs in an 8-1 win over Pine
SCastle Christian,., a statete "
champion two years ago, on
April 3.
Pine Castle's lone run
occurred in the first inning
after Bradford committed two
errors.

Direct marketing in



Bradford, roadside style


Bradford County boasts a
Total of 10 roadside produce
stands-eight along the U.S.
301 corridor, three within the
city of Starke and two off the
major highways. In addition to
selling to highway travelers,
these locally owned, small
businesses provide a daily flow
of fresh produce to residents of
Lawtey, Starke and Hampton.
They specialize in selling
seasonal commodities,
including fruits, vegetables,
pecans and Christmas trees.
Currently, they are selling
homegrown strawberries,
many of which are picked less
than 24 hours before adorning
a strawberry shortcake.
Bradford County's network
of roadside stands benefits the
community in many ways. It
provides 'local jobs, brings in
revenue and supports local
farmers. All of the proprietors
sell seasonal produce they
either grow or buy from local
farms. Many, farmers do not
want to direct market their
produce. They are happy to
sell their produce wholesale to
a local outlet.
Local supply is seasonal and
is not available throughout the
year, so, out of necessity, all of
the markets sell produce that is


shipped in from out of state
and from foreign markets. If
the markets do not thrive all
year, they cannot support the

Changing

demographics

benefit small-

vegetable

producers
Ethnic markets have
expanded at a rapid rate in
recent years and represent an
exciting opportunity for local
farmers.
The percentage of
immigrants in the United
States is higher than it has
been since 1930. Once here,
many newcomers seek things
that remind them of home. One
of the most sought-after
reminders is the taste of local
dishes and meals enjoyed
before immigrating.The power
of food as a tie to home is
.. .evident in the consistent


increase in the sales of ethnic
vegetables.
Over the past few years,
researchers at Rutgers, the
University of Florida and the
University of Massachusetts
have conducted intensive
surveys in major northeast
markets to quantify this
changing market demand and
to identify crops that are
popular among four large
ethnic groups that dominate
the Eastern Seaboard: Chinese,
Asian Indian, Puerto Rican and
Mexican.
The last U.S. census, in
2000, found 2.7 million Puerto
Ricans in the 16 East Coast
states and the District of
Columbia, a population that
grew by 25 percent since the
previous census in 1990.
. Though it's the largest of the
four groups studied group, it
wasn't the fastest-growing.
There were 1.5 million
Mexicans, 53 percent more
than in 1990; almost 900,000
Chinese, 48 percent more; and
800,000 Indians, a population
that rose by 106 percent.
Using interpreters and
bilingual surveys, 271 people
in each of the four ethnic
groups were given choices of
vegetables typically found in
their community markets and
considered potential candidates
to grow on East Coast farms,
to find how much they eat and
what they're willing to spend.
Chinese selections included
edamame, pak choy, oriental
spinach, snow peas, oriental
eggplant, edible luffa, baby
pak choy, napa cabbage,
perilla, oriental mustard and
malabar spinach.
Asian Indians want things
like eggplant, amaranth, bottle
gourd, cluster beans, fenugreek
leaves, mint leaves, mustard
leaves, ridge gourd, white
pumpkin and bitter gourd.
Mexicans prefer anaheim
pepper, calabaza, calabacita,
chili jalepeno,.chili poblano,
chili serrano, chili habanero,
cilantro and tomatillo. Puerto
Rican are seeking aji dulce,
batata, calabaza, calabacita,
chile caribe, cilantro,
Sberenjena, pepinillo and
verdblaga. Market research
showed that with many of
these products, there's a very
real shortage. This opportunity
has expanded with the
dramatic increase of
transportation costs which has
negatively impacted the
importation of ethnic crops
from other countries and other

students in that capacity.

these stands every day. It is no
accident that the majority of
Bradford County roadside
stands are located on the
Tampa-Jacksonville highway.
Another successful strategy
for locating a roadside stand is
to grow the produce near the
