And the winner is...


If the point was to reward academic
achievement, then who better to win the car
promised to one lucky high school student than
the Class of 2009 valedictorian? In what might go
down as one of the best weeks on record, Kati
Tedder will not only graduate at the top of her
class on Friday, but she now has keys to her own
car to boot.
The car, a 1998 Chevy Cavalier, was donated by
Brandi Noegel and Noegel's Auto Sales. Glowing
report cards and attendance records earned
students chances to win the car in the end-of-
year drawing. Five finalists were drawn, then the
winner's name was drawn before the school board
on Tuesday afternoon.
Kati, who will be off the University of Central
Florida before you know it, said she tried not to
get her hopes up that she would win. Now that she
has won, she said she is so grateful to have a car
for college. She thanked Noegel for her generosity
as well as BHS Principal Lisa Graham for reaching
out to the business community and partnering the
school with Noegel's.
Noegel, pictured hugging Kati, was.all smiles.
at the giveaway and clearly enjoys it, In fact, she
announced that Noegel's will be donating another
car to award student achievement again next year.
Pictured above are Brandi Noegel and Principal
Lisa Graham with the five finalists-Kati Tedder,
Casey Hines, Joseph Lombel, Arthur Smith and
Devon Paulk. Each was deserving, Graham said.


In addition to her busy schedule of high school
and college courses, academic competitions, and
Extracurricular activities, Kati also wrote stories
about the high school and other subjects for the
Telegraph this year.

led the Memorial Day ceremony held
at Charlie Schaefer Veterans Memorial
Park in Starke on Monday,
Peace, who gave a brief history of
Memorial Day, said the greatest tribute
that could be offered to fallen veterans
is to live with the faith and courage they
embodied.
"We are honored to have the


opportunity 'to memorialize the men
and women who have fought and died
to maintain our freedom, and to pay
tribute to their courage and sacrifice,
not just here today, but as we continue
on with our own lives," Peace said.
These service men and women were
obedient to the point of death, and
respect for what they gave must be
maintained, he said.
"In remembering them, it is our duty
to ensure their families receive the care
they need to go on with their lives," said
Peace.

ignores

survey to


support


uniforms

BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor
in spite of a parent survey that
was nearly two to one against school
uniforms, the Bradford County School
Board voted to continue to require them
at the middle school for at least one
more year.:
The vote was against the
recommendation of the superintendent,
who favors a common sense dress code
over uniforms. While at least two board
members came close. to siding with
her. an impassioned argument in favor
of uniforms by School Board Member
Vivian ChappelF managed to turn the
tide.
The board did not expand the program
to other schools, however. In fact, the
option was never brought up.
Superintendent Beth Moore said the
,vast majority of teachers at the middle
school supported uniforms, although
figures on referrals did not demonstrate
there was a dramatic improvement in
discipline. Referrals were down about 4
percent, but there were still more than
840 issued at the school during the
years.
Parents of current fifth-, sixth- and
seventh-graders were surveyed for their
input on uniforms, Moore said. While
98 wanted their kids at the middle
school to wear uniforms, 171 did not.
Based on this input from parents,
Moore recommended the board
no longer require uniforms at the
middle school. She said a dress code
emphasizing modesty should replace
the uniform requirement.
"I believe with all my, heart that if
we.stick to a dress code, it can be as
effective as a uniform, and those that
like uniforms can continue to wear
them," Moore said.
School Board Members Randy Jones
and Jesse Moore moved to approve
Moore's recommendation.
Jones said he was in favor of uniforms
as a pilot program and the potential
improvement in discipline. A reduction
of only 35 referrals is not what he was
hoping to see, however.
Chappell. who said she has always
supported uniforms, said they made a
difference, even if noton:paper.
"It's the first positive thing I've seen
happen in this school system in a long
time, and .1 hate to see it fail," said
Chappell, adding she hadn't received
complaints about uniforms beyond the
approved colors.
"I do believe it made an impact, I
do believe it was the right thing to do,
and once again we, have put our foot
out there and we have taken two steps
back," she said.
Moore conceded teachers said
there was a difference, but her
recommendation was based on what
parents wanted.
Chappell thought the board should
stand up to those parents.
"Once again we're going to let the
parents dictate to us when we're the
school board and for once we ought
to stand up for what's right and what's
good for this community," Chappell
said.
School Board Member David Smith
pointed to teacher sentiment to defend
uniforms, but also said he heard positive
feedback from students and would like
to see a survey of students on the issue.
Following this and further discussion,
Jones and Moore withdrew their
motion. 'Jones then 'moved to require
uniforms at the middle school for an
additional -year, and called for better
documentation on the impact uniforms
have on the school environment.
Chappell supplied a second, and the

Third-graders raise FCAT bar


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

Bradford County third-graders excelled overall
on the Florida Comprehensive Assessment TestI
th i s year, beating the state average score for reading
and tying the state score on mathematics.
Third-graders inthe district averaged 320 points
in reading, compared to the state average of 313
points. This Was 14 points better than last year
plus 79 percent of student tested were performing
at Level 3 or above, meaning they were performing
at or above grade level.
Only 69 percent were'doing that well last year.
Bradford third-graders tied the state's 337-poini
average, which was 15 points higher than third-
graders in the district scored last year. Plus, 8(
percent were performing at or above grade leve
compared to 73 percent last year.
Most schools experienced improvement ovei
the scores received last year and in the number of
students scoring Level 3 or above.
Take Lawtey Community School, for example
With 338. points, it was by far the highest average
reading score in the district and an astounding
42 points better than third-graders at the school
received last year.
This year, 95 percent of third-graders at thi
school were reading at or above grade level.
With a 328-point average, third-graders ii
Brooker raised the school's score 30 points ove
last year, and 76 percent scored at Level 3 or above
compared to 52 percent in 2008.
MQre modest gains were achieved at Hampton


Starke and Southside elementary schools, although
each still beat the state average and all but Hampton
were able to increase the percentage of students
.reading at or above grade level.
Starke Elementary did come out on top in
g mathematics, however. Third-graders there
averaged 348 points, which was 29 points higher
than last year's third-grade group. Seventy-eight
Percent were performing at or above grade level,
compared to 66 percent in 2008.
S Brooker's 340-point average was a 10-point
Improvement over last year, although a smaller
percentage achieved Level 3 than in 2008.
Lawtey once again improved its average score
t by the largest point spread, raising its math average'
- 35 points to 339. Level 3 performance rose 16
Points to 83 percent, tying with Southside for the
I highest percentage of students performing math at
or above grade level.
r Southside and Hampton, however, did achieve
f lower average scores in math this year.
Third-graders in Lake Butler scored a bit higher
. than Bradford County in reading and 17 points
e higher in math. In Keystone Heights, third-graders
g .excelled in reading, averaging 341 points, with 90
I percent at or above grade level. The average jnath
score, 367 points was even higher, and 88 percent
e scored at or above Level 3.
Carol Clyatt, director of school improvement
In and accountability, said this year's results were
r phenomenal compared with the state. Only 12
, percent of students scored at Level I in reading this
year. In math, it was only 6 percent.

Landfill budget contains more for salaries, construction and innovation


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

The 2009-10 budget proposed
for the New River Solid Waste
Association was down almost 2
percent to $8.14 million.
The disposal rate was adjusted-
downward to reflect the recent
trend, resulting in less revenue
generated by the in-region
counties-Bradford, Union. and'
Baker. The estimate,is down by
almost 30 percent, or $480,000.
Disposal has dropped off in
the current economy. In-region
counties had only generated
35 percent of their anticipated
revenue six months in to the
current fiscal year.
At the same time tipping fees
for Alachua and Levy counties
are going up from $29 and $30
a ton to $32 a ton. Even with
reucded tonnage, this will reqUlJ
ininew revenue.
The landfill is also receiving a
gooddeal ofinterestonitreserves.
This year's budget estimate has'
already been exceeded by 166
percent, and that is expected
to continue. Plus, the board
anticipates selling carbon credits,
as a new source of revenue.

Executive Director Darrell
O'Neal pointed out that until
now, there had been n6 financial
benefit realized for the landfill's
work with the University of
Florida to host the bioreactor
project. The collection and
burning of the landfill gas
over time, however, could reap
$350,000or more for the landfill,
with additional benefits to come.
So even with disposal revenue
down-off a projected $600,000
by the end of the current fiscal
year-landfill revenue overall is
expected to be down less than 2
percent next year.
This is being accomplished
without raising rates for in region
counties, which pay $24 per ton
for disposal.
The budget includes a possible
3 percent pay raise for employees.
One percent represents a cost of
living increase, but employees
will have to earn the other 2
percent as it is based on merit.
Eleven percent -more is
being budgeted, for overtime
($137,000), and additional funds
are being-allocated for benefits
like insurance. Health insurance
costs are projected to increase

80 percent is being included in a
line item that assists employees
in c6Aering their deductibles
($45,000).
Three positions-a full-time'
equipment operator (hired but
not included in the current
budget) and two truck driving
positions-have been included in
the proposed budget. Those truck.
drivers will only be hired if the
board decides to begin, hauling
its own fill dirt for use in daily
ground cover.
Landfill staff has begun
working with engineers on
master planning expansion of
the landfill into the, 300 acres
acquired from the state. That
is one new engineering project
included in,the proposed budget
($150,000), and is money setaside
for engineering costs associated
with possibly permitting a new
borrow pit ($100,000).
Funds., to, .begin design4
permitting and' construction of
a sixth disposal cell have been
included in the budget as 'well
($475,000).
The landfill has money set
aside in escrow for construction
of future disposal cells. Cell
6 is estimated at $4.2 million.


Story times are sponsored by
the Starke Kiwanis Club.

RJE Class of
1959 reunion
this weekend
The RJE Class of 1959 will
celebrate is 50th class reunion
this weekend. On Saturday, May
30, the class will spend the day at
Camp Blanding.
On Sunday, May 31, there will
be a special church service at
Mt. Pisgah AME Church at 11
a.m.-including a memorial T'or
deceased members-with dinner
to follow.


Once that money is spent, it
will leave around $750,000 in
the construction fund. There are
additional costs associated with
construction of the seventh cell,
however, which will be larger,
and either build It on top of Cell 3 or
on a portion of the 300 adjacent
acres acquired from the state
(which will require additional
infrastructure).
O'Neal said the board was
going to have to raise about $10-
$15 million before Cell 7 is built,
and will more than likely need to
borrow someof those funds.
SAs for the money the landfill
intends to set aside next year, there
is $1.16 million in escrow funds
included in the proposed budget
..that will be split between closure
costs, equipment 'replacement,
cell construction, long-term
planning and depreciation.
More money,'' $215,000, is
being included in the.budget for
engineering related to developing
uses for landfill gas as renewable
energy, and there's $200,000 to
continue expansion of the gas
collection system. There is also
$600,000 in the budget to install
a backup flare for the landfill
gas, an air quality requirement.

Mobile homes to be allowed as temporary use


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

Soon it will be possible to
place mobile homes in the city
of Starke in neighborhoods
not zoned for them, but only in
special circumstances.
The commission approved
on first reading an ordinance
allowing for temporary use
permits to be issued for mobile
homes in agricultural and
residential zoning districts.
Recently the city commission
turned down a rezoning
application that would have
allowed a daughter to place a
mobile home on her mother's
lot where she and her children
would be in close proximity to


look after her.
The board overall wasn't
willing to change the zoning of
the parcel, which would have
permanently allowed multiple
mobile homes to be installed
there until such a time as a future
owner requested a new zoning
change.
It was an emotional situation',
but rejected the application,
siding with neighbors-vho feared
opening the door to mobile
homes and diminished property
values. .....
Commissioners did, however,
sympathize with the request and
expressed an interest adding a
hardship provision to the land
development code that would
grant temporary relief for the


applicant and those in similar
circumstances.
The ordinance approved on
first reading May 19 does just
that.
The ordinance goes even,
removing the commission from
the approval process altogether
and investing the authority to
issue a temporary use permit in
the operations tanager.
Such a permit is available
for agricultural and residential
districts and allows a single
mobile home as an accessory
residence to the principal
residential dwelling. The
occupant of the accessory mobile
home residence must be related
by blood, adoption or marriage.
The time limit for the


temporary use is two years,
although the applicant may
reapply for a new temporary use
permit at that time.
Starke's land development code
doesn't prohibit mobile homes,
but their installation is restricted.
Outside of a zoned mobile home
park, the single-family mobile
home district is limited to
existing developed areas where
a mixed housing type already
exists or to areas of substandard
housing where mobile homes
would represent an improvement
in housing quality.
. The commission will take up
final adoption of the ordinance
next month.


Starke power plant cleanup further delayed


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

Funding availability has
pushedfinal cleanupof the Starke
power plan site into the fall, and
that's being optimistic.
The cleanup, and
accompanying improvement of
the site, might not take -place
until next year, according to
a representative of Advanced
Environmental Technologies, the
cleanup contractor.
Starke's project, and hundreds
of similar projects around the
state, have been frozen because
of changes in funding structure
of the Florida Petroleum Cleanup
Preapproval Program.
This year, the program received
a $137.6 million allocation from
the Inland Protection Trust Fund,


Summer
program for
middle school
students
AchievingMaximum Potential,
the after-school program for
middle school students at Starke
Church of God by Faith, will be


which is supported by tak on
gasoline. The legislature 'iNided
that trust fund to support the
general fund, removing a direct
legislative appropriation as the
funding source for the,cleanup
program.
Beginning July 1, the program
will bebondedfor$103.4million,
$90 million of which will be
available for cleanup. The
legislature 'only budgeted $10.3
million toward the program,
which represents the annual debt
service payment on the bond.
Lower priority project funding
has been suspended pending
the availability of bond funding
as the Florida Department of
Environmental Protection tries to
stretch remaining project funds
allocated this year into the new
fiscal year while it awaits bond


offering a summer program as
well.
The program will take
place Monday-Friday during
the summer from 8 a.m.-2:30
p.m. each day in the church's
community learning center.
Transportation, breakfast and
lunch will be taken care of by the
grant-funded program.
The program provides middle
schoolers with academic
support, physical activity, and
art arid imusid enrichment.
Character, building is also part
of the curriculum, and there are
opportunities to participate in
family literacy.
Registration is required by


funding to be approved.
Starke's project score, which is
based in part on the threat posed
by the petroleum contamination,
was recently raised. It is still not
high enough to fall within the
funded category, however.
AET's representative said
funding may be available around
Oct. 1, the start of the city's new
budget year, but that is being
optimistic. Funding may not
come until Jan. 1.
This will delay the city's
plan to convert the site into
an amphitheater with an
outdoor stage, although interim
improvements have been made
to host a portion of the upcoming
bike fest at the site.
Aside from the city, which
has to wait to carry on further
development at the site, work was

promised to local contractors,
which will also find themselves
waiting until funding is
available.
That's not to mention
contractors around the state
regularly involved in the
environmental cleanup industry.
AET has already laid off staff
and plans to do so again.
AET's representative said the
bright spot is that once bond
dollars are available, every
project on hold will receive
funding. Instead of five separate
work orders needed to complete
the city's project, a single work
order will be issued to carry out
the entire project.
Operations Manager Ricky
Thompson said that should speed
the eventual completion of the
work.

Putnam Hall church holds youth fest in spite of rain


BY JAMES WILLIAMS
Monitor Editor
The Abilene Missionary
Baptist Church in Putnam Hall
held its Youth Fest last Saturday.
It marked the return of a
tradition that lapsed for a few
years, but, according to Youth
Minister Timothy Flowers, it
seemed like a good time to
revive the annual event.
The Youth Fest was sponsored
by the church and two men,
Flowers and Quinton Bellamy,
who is not a member of the
Putnam Hall church.
The free event promised
the young people door prizes,
water games and lots of food.
And they got it.
Despite last Saturday's rain,
about 50 people showed up by
noon and more were driving
up as the afternoon progressed.
Most of Abilene's members are
from Putnam Hall, although
others are from as far away as
Palatka.
Flowers got the blow-up
wading pools and the slip'n
slide set up_. The- women
''atbfered around a picnic table
for dominoes. The younger
kids squirted anybody and
everybody with water pistols.
When .rain .came, everyone
gathered inside the church's
meeting hall or outside, around
picnic tables under a tent, until
it stopped.
The older boys went across
the street to play basketball.
Although they were well within
sight of the church yard, a
chaperone was appointed to go
across the street to keep watch.
Bellamy has made a sort...
Sof personal ministry out
of his barbecue grill, which
is shaped like a nearly life-
sized locomotive. Bellamy,
is wife, Gail, and his sister
drove a pickup truck and the
grill through the rain from their
home in Fairbanks on the other
side of Waldo.
Bellamy bought and cooked
the meat, raising the eight doors
of the grill to show visitors the
racks of ribs, chicken parts,
sausages and pork.
"This is what I do for the
children," Bellamy said on
Saturday. "They are our future.
This is how I give back, and
I go all over the area. But it
comes from the heart and from
God." '

(L-R) While the rain. came and went, Tanya Hayes, Evelyn Davis,
Gloria Filer, Lueann Guthrle and Claretha Davis played a game of
dominoes. The women said they were only playing for bragging
rights.


Bellamy's barbecue grill resembles a steam locomotive and'
Is nearly life sized. The oak wood smoke pours out of the
smokestacks up top, naturally.


Youth Minister Timothy
Flowers organized the
once-annual event. "I.
thought It was time to
bring It back," he said.

-^~ fB^ pm..,-. .. .- .
S.. 1 .: Principal's Message
We are very proud to announce the graduation of John Adams and Hannah Haas
as the Class of 2009 from Northside Christian Academy. These students were
the fifth graduating class from NCA.
The class valedictorian, John Adams, is the recipient of the Florida Medallion
Scholarship (FMS). This scholarship will pay 100% of the student's tuition for
the first two years in a community college and 75% of the tuition for two
remaining years of his Bachelor of Arts degree. In the last three graduating
classes, one-half of all graduates from Northside Christian Academy have
earned this scholarship. Mr. Adams was also presented with the Distinguished
Christian High School Student award by the Association of Christian Schools
International for excellence in the areas of Academics, Athletics, Leadership,
Fine Arts, and Christian Service.
Mr. Adams not only excelled in the classroom, but also in the area of athletics.
He has been a three-year captain of NCA's two-year district champion flag
football team. The flag football team also placed third in the state. John was
also the leading scorer for this year's district champion basketball team and a
captain of the State Runner Up Softball team. John was also named to the All
District Team for every sport in which he participated. John was also the
regional champion in discus and long Jump.
Ms. Haas has many athletic accomplishments of her own. Hannah was a player
and a captain of the three-time regional champion volleyball team. She was also
a part of the two-time regional champion flag corps team. Hannah, too, was
named to the All District Volleyball Team.
In addition to their athletic accomplishments, both John and Hannah have
participated in mission trips to Mississippi and Louisiana for Hurricane Katrina
relief and to Immokalee, Florida and Virginia. Hannah has also participated in a
mission trip to Hondoraus. They are also active participants in local missions.
Northside Christian Academy offers three programs of study in high school. The
General Studies Diploma meets the Florida Department of Education's standards
for high school graduation. In addition to these standards, General Diploma
graduates must also earn one credit each In New Testament, Etymology, and
Typing and one-half credit id Florida State History. The College Preparatory
Diploma is the next program level offered by NCA. Students who graduate with
this diploma have met all the requirements to earn the Florida Medallion andlor
the Florida Academic Scholarships, with the exception of the qualifying ACTISAT
scores. In addition to the state's requirements for these scholarships, students
earning the College Preparatory Diploma must also earn credits in Old
Testament, World Geography, and Speech. The final program of study is the
Honors Diploma Program. This program is similar to the College Preparatory
Diploma with additional credits in Bible and Mathematics being required. On top
of these requirements, the grading scale at Northside Christian Academy
demands that students master the material in each subject. The minimum
passing grade is an 80%. These graduates have worked hard to earn their high
school diplomas.
You two have made us very proud of youl
Remember..."Let no one look down on your youthfulness, but rather In speech,
conduct, love, faith, and purity, show yourself an example of those who believe."
(1 Timothy 4:12)


"Say Goodbye"
by Skillet


Things are changing
It seems strange and
I need to figure this out
You've got your life
I got mine
But you're all I cared about
YesterdaN we were laughing
Today I'm left here asking
Where has all the time gone now.
I'm left alone somehow
Growing up and getting older
I don't want to believe it's over


(Chorus:)
Don't say goodbye
Cause I don't wanna hear those words tonight
Cause maybe it's not ihe end for %ou and I,
And although we knew
This time would come for me and you
Don't say anything tonight
if you're gonna say goodbye
Do you remember
In December
How we swore we'd neer change
Even though you're leaving
That our feelings
Would always slay the same
I wish we could be laughing
Instead I'm standing here asking
Do we have to end this now
Can we make it la't somehow
We both know what we'%e gona say, not today
Cause I don't wanna lea3e this way
(Bridge:)
And if it's over
It hurts but I'm giving you my word
I hope that you're always
Happy like we were
Happy like we were
kAltro:}
Yesterday we were laugluhing (Ifyou're gonna say goodbye)
Today I'm left heere asking lIf you're gonna say goodbye) '
And although we knew this time would come for me and you
Don't say anything tonight
If you're gonna say goodbye

McRae chimps 'rescued'


Elderly Mcrae

man can no

longer care for

pets that are

more like family

members

S BY JAMES WILLIAMS
Monitor Editor

Soggy McRae motorists
Were a little bemused last
Wednesday to see a large,
colorful van at the junction of
S.R. 315C and Trawick Road.
"Savethechimps.org," it said on
the side, with a large painting
of just that-a chimp.
The Fort Pierce-based animal
rescue group normally liberates
chimpanzees from research
centers and takes them to a
private, non-profit enclave of
man-made moats and islands
in South Florida, where the
chimps live out their primate
lives safely and in comfort.
But why was the organization
coming to McRae? It's a story.
Lake Region resident Jack
Dhlschwager and his late
,vife Florence raised two
;himpanzees they named Billy
Bob and- Vickie Lynn. The
Dhischwagers took the chimps
in as babies when a previous
owner could no longer care for
them.

Vicky Lynn had been with the
family since 1972 and Billy Bob
since 1982. The Ohischwagers
raised the chimps not as pets,
but as members of the family
that also included the couple's
human children Donna, Debbie
and Sherry.
The chimps slept in the kids'
old cribs, ate at the table using
silverware, and took bubble
baths. They visited schools and
retirement homes. They could
play piano, roller-skate, and
walk while' balancing atop a
ball. They dressed up as Santa
Claus and played Indians while
riding pogo stick horses.
However, the Ochlschwager
children grew up and moved
away from home. Florence
passed away in September
2008. Now alone and in his
80s', Jack waesfiling it aifficult-
to careT&o the`cilinps'Aniimal
authorities were pointing out
problems. Toward the end,
the chimps were being kept
outdoors in a cage in a McRae
yard. ._.
"Monkey chow is expensive,"
Sherry Ohischwager Malson
said, last Thursday. She added
that so far as she could tell the
chow was. mostly corn meal,

but the only place her
aging father could
buy it was by special
order at a pet store in
Gainesville. I
Ohischwager and
Malson, began to
look for assistance
caring for the
chimps. Malson
began* searching for
a natural sanctuary.
She applied to Save A
the Chimps, asking
the organization to ,
take the two animals tt
in.
However, Save the
Chimps is supported
entirely by donations
and has to look at
its own bottom lines
of available space V
and limited finances.
After a while, the Save the
Chimps board agreed to take
the chimps and a van trip from
Ft. Pierce was planned-for
last Wednesday..
The van left South Florida
at 6 a.m. and faced a drenching
rain much of the way up. Worse,
once they arrived, Malson told
them there was no way the
large trailer could make it down
Trawick Road, which was now
under water. Other Trawick.
residents had already parked'
iftheir automobiles at S.R. 315C
when they couldn't get them
home.
Vicki Miller, a veterinary
technician took the day off from
her job at the Fuller Veterinary
Clinic in Melrose and came
to help. Miller, Malson,
Ohslchwager and the Save
The Chimps staff sedated the
two primates, wrapped them in
blankets to stave off rain and
cold, and transported them in a
four-wheel drive vehicle one at

Dky Lynn driving over
potholes,
soggy sand and clay, through
puddles and even currents
across the road. The Save the
Chimps staff worked through
lunch and dinner, Malson said.
The van didn't make it back
to Fort Pierce until 9 p.m. that
evening.
So far, the story ends happily.
Malson said she received a call
to say that by Thursday Billy
Bob and Vickie Lynn were
already adapting well to their
new Save the Chimps gated
community in Fort Pierce. And
they never missed a monkey
meal.
"Our kids have been
members of Keystone Heights
for a long time and Jack and I
will sure miss them," Malson
said last week. "But there
comes a time in life where you

KH pastor celebrates 15 years


BY RUTH MICHEL
Special to the Monitor
SAs members sit in sea green
cloth pews waiting for the
choir to sing, a clean-cut,
middle-aged man in a suit and
pastel tie calls a mother and
her child by name- and greets
'them with an ear-to-ear smile
and firm handshake.
Known to his congregation
as Pastor James, Dr. Jahnes M.
Peoples has been senior pastor
of Trinity Baptist Church on
S.R. 21 in Keystone Heights
since 1994. The church
celebrated, his 15-year
anniversary as its pastor on
May 3.
Pastors normally spend an
average of two years at a
church, Peoples said. His
church thanked him for his
extended tenure with a
fellowship after the evening
service and an announcement
that the president of the
Southern Baptist Convention,-
'Dr. Johnny Hunt, would speak
at Trinity in his honor.
Hunt spoke to a packed
sanctuary at the weekly
Wednesday night prayer
service on May. 13. Peoples
said Hunt has long been a
friend and mentor.
Before coming to Trinity,
Peoples ministered in more
than 20 countries, traveled to
over 400 churches across the
-U.S. with a traveling singing
-:group from Liberty University
-iard served as an associate
=pastor in North Carolina. He
still sings and plays the tuba at
Trinii).
He was 27 when .he became
-Trinity's pastor. His wife
Jeannie remembers their first
visit to Trinity. She said
everyone was warm and
Friendly. That Sunday, the
choir was unusually excited by
a squirrel in the sanctuary, she
said with a laugh.
Trinity began in the
cafeteria of Keystone Heights

High School with now State
Rep. Charle Van Zant as the
organizing pastor in 1984. On
Dec. 6, Trinity will celebrate
its 25" anniversary.
Peoples said he was able to
begin his pastorate on a firm
foundation. There were about
200 people when he arrived,
but now there are about 650 on
a Sunday morning.
"Growth comes with
challenges," he said, "but we
feel God has. given us a greater
opportunity to reach more
people."


He remembers the pastoral
search committee telling him,
"We want you to marry our
children and bury .us." He has
done both.
Three bookshelves packed
full of Christian literature and
Bible study material line the
back wall of Peoples' office. A
framed certificate displays his
doctorate of ministry degree
from Luther Rice Seminary.
He also said he has two
master's degrees from Liberty
University.
Peoples' is a member of the

State Board of Missions for the
Florida Baptist State
Convention, the Secretary-
Treasurer for the 2009
Southern Baptist Pastors'
Conference and a member of
the 2009 SBC's Committee on
Committees.
He has volunteered for Lake
Area Ministries for 10 years.
He said he is on his second
stint as president of LAM's
executive board.
"The whole Lake Area is
unique in the way we are able
to cooperate on everything,"
he said. "We don't agree on
everything, but Jesus said to'
feed the hungry, and we can all
agree on that."
In high school, Peoples said
he wanted to pursue a medical
career.
"My heart and motivation
was to help people," he said.
Pastoral ministry became clear
through time. He wanted to
help people spiritually in an
eternal way.
"I love it. That's what God
made me for," he said.
He added that finding an
appropriate balance in his life
has been important. First
comes his relationship with the
Lord. Second in priority is his
role as husband and father. The
ministry is his third priority.
James and Jeannie Peoples
have two girls, Emily, 12, and
Dana, 9.
Jeannie said her husband is
a hands-on father who likes to
play with his daughters. He is'
also quick to help where he
can. After they had children he
told her, "Let me iron your
clothes." He still meticulously
irons every night.
"He's a keeper" she said.
Peoples said their family has
faced challenges but has had
great support. Their youngest,
Dana, is a special needs child
with Down syndrome and

said during the May 25
observance. "They deserve our
honor on a daily basis.
"Memorial Day ceremonies
are not the only way to honor
our fallen heroes. Whenever
we show our respect to the-
American flag, we 'honor our
war dead. Whenever we vote,
we confirm the democracy
they died for. Whenever we
exercise our freedoms of
speech and rights to assembly,
we honor their great sacrifice.
Whenever we gather in places
to worship, we are blessed by
this greatest of freedom, which
they fought dearly to protect."
Green discussed the origins
of Memorial Day and
referenced the words of
President James Garfield, who
spoke at the first official
ceremony: "We do not know
one promise these men made,
one pledge they gave, one
word they spoke; but we do
know they summed up and
perfected, by one supreme act,
the highest virtues of men and
citizens. For love of country,
they accepted death, and thus
resolved all doubts and made

World adventure continues


for Mike Cooney and family


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
The next time you're sitting
in your car stuck in traffic
somewhere, just be thankful
the only trunks in sight are
those on the rears of the cars
around you.
Stories concerning
transportation continue to be
popular blog topics for the
members of the Cooney
family, but while there have
been no more 20-hour bus
rides as they experienced on
the first leg of their world tour,
S they can say they've had the
unique experience of avoiding
elephants on the road.
There have been no more
bus rides of more than 20
hours, as they experienced on
the first leg of their trip, but
the members of the Cooney
family but the task of getting
around a foreign country
continues to be a popular topic
of blogs posted by members of
the Cooney family as they
continue their world tour,
which currently has the family
in Southeast Asia.
Mike-the son of Harry and
Marianna Cooney of Starke-
and his wife, Catrell-the
daughter of Grady and Dimple
Overstreet of Starke-decided
more than three years ago to
sell their home and their
belongings in order to help


finance a trip around the
world, giving their sons-
twins Morgan and Zach and
Harrison-a chance to
experience different cultures
and what life is like outside of
the U.S.
After traveling through
Mexico, Guatemala,`
Nicaragua, Costa Rica, .Peru,
Chile, Argentina, Uruguay and
Brazil, the Cooneys returned
home briefly before departing
March 1 for, Johannesburg,
South Africa. They spent two
months in Africa before
departing for southeast Asia,
where they are currently.
It was while in Africa the
family came upon a herd of
elephants in the road.
"Being stuck in traffic like
that in the bush beats being
stuck in traffic- in the city any
day," Zach wrote in a blog
found on te family's Web
site, www.cooneyworld
adventure.com.
As in city traffic jams, there
were several impatient people,
willing to try anything to get
moving again, whether it was
trying" to drive around the
elephants or drive between the
herd. Those- were not smart
moves, Zach wrote, adding
that the female leader of the
herd, which included babies,.
was not 'happy about such
maneuvers. The "smart"


The Cooney family, while traveling in Africa, came
'upon a herd of elephants in the road. Zach Cooney
pointed out the car pictured in the foreground
unwisely tried to drive around the oncoming
elephant.

people, Zach wrote, simply
stayed put, only reversing
when an elephant approached
them.
"After about an hour of
reversing, stopping, reversing
and stopping without
advancing forward or gaining
any ground, the elephants
finally decided to meander off
into the bush," Zach wrote.
The family did not have to
worry about elephants in
Thailand, but a- bit of
misunderstanding on Mike's
part almost using its feet
despite the fact they had a car.
The family rented a car
while on the island of Koi
Chang. Mike, in a blog, wrote
that he wished all car rental
companies were like the one-
he, vas at. He signed a one-
pa!e'!contract, paid for the car
arid that was it. However,
Mike thought the rental
employee told him the gas tank
was half full arid that he should
return the car with no gas. The
family began driving when
Harrison noticed the "empty"
light blinking.
"I immediately realized what
the guy had actually told me
was, 'The tank is empty. Put
gas in it and bring it back
empty.' Big difference!"
Koh Chang does not have
many gas stations, though
there are many stores that sell
gas in whiskey bottles for
mopeds, Mike wrote. He said
the family was prepared to buy-T
five such bottles until they>.,
came upon a gafs station.
"None of us were looking
forward to pushing the car if
we ran out of gas," Mike
wrote.
Sometimes it has been hard
for Mike and his family to
adjust to the. fact that in some
countries, they do riot drive on
the "right" side of the road as
here in the U.S. In one blog,-

Local man
injured when
boat swamped
Evan Denmark, 22, of
Starke had his hand seriously
injured on May 24 when a
sudden storm swamped the
Denmark boat on Lake George
in Putnam County.
According to Denmark
family members, Evan
Denmark had piloted the boat
out onto the lake under clear
skies with 12 people on board.
When the storm came up very
suddenly, Evan picked up an
additional three young people
who had no other way of
getting back to the docking
area.
Ron Denmark, Evan's
father, said the boat capsized
in what proved to be a
ferocious storm. Evan
Denmark was the only person
on the boat who was seriously
injured. Four of the young
people told Ron Denmark they
were able to remain afloat only
because they grabbed hold of a
large cooler that had been
swept off the boat by the
waves.
"It's no doubt that everyone
on board was very lucky," said
Ron Denmark.
He said five other boats
capsized on the same lake
during the same storm.
According to a Palatka Daily
News article, three young
children were killed on Lake
George after the boat they
.were on capsized due to this
same storm.
Ron Denmark said the injury
to Evan's hand is serious, but
not as serious as they had first
feared.

Carter Road
suggestion
Dear Editor
My name is John Bloom-
a simple taxpayer speaking for
a bunch of nice lawful folks,
also taxpayers, living on a
government-made mud bog
that cannot be accessed even
on a 911 emergency call!
I live on Carter Road in
Lawtey-also named 912 NE
227th Street because of a
ludicrous battle between
Bradford County and the city
of Lawtey. We, the residents
of this dirt road are in very dire
conditions-even with four-
wheel drive vehicles, we.
cannot get down the dirt road.

Across from KOA Campground


The road is so bad, one of our
residents broke a drive axle
attempting to come home-
they hit a concrete sewer in the
middle of a dirt road! Over the
holiday weekend, numerous
people have
been stranded/mired down in a
government made mud bog.
For those who do not know
of the insane history of this
"dirt road"-county/government
mud bog:
1. Not long ago, the city of
Lawtey attempted to install a
sewer system on a dirt road
network-crazy in concept,
disastrous in reality. Long
story short-they removed a
limerock road to install
massive concrete sewer blocks
with iron sewer tops in the
middle- of a dirt road. They
never completed the project--'
we simply have concrete tank
traps in the middle of a dirt
road! Worse: they took
a recycled product to replace
the lime rock road. The
recycled silt makes a normal
mud bog look like concrete!
Negligence in my view' and
worthy of legal review.
2. Our road has a population
base that exceeds the entire
town of Lawtey. We have
more swimming pools down
our "dirt" road than the entire
town of Starke.
3. Our combined per
capital county tax basis per
mileage exceeds any Bradford
county road--period-simply
put-we pay more taxes per
foot/per homestead and get
less-dirt road that is now
impassable because of
government neglect--this
includes city and county--and
now I will..-include state. We
also do not have :fire hydrants
that can support. our
homesteads. We are living in
the 1800s.
'4. More: Existing culverts
have been covered up by blind
road sgrating-even my new
culvert is now almost
completely covered due ,to
improper (county) installation
and-county road grating. Also,

"It's as if they are all trying to

Mike wrote the family
would even find itself holding
its ground against oncoming

In malls, they noticed the
escalators on the left went up,

went down.
"Even we could not get that

As one might expect, the
family has experienced many
differences in comparing the
U.S. to the countries they have
visited. Take shopping malls,
for instance. Mike wrote of
going to malls in Bangkok. He
described a complex of four
huge buildings with floor after

boat, while also housing
dealerships for Jaguar,

Driving upon a herd of
elephants in the road was
certainly a memorable
experience for Morgan and
Zach Cooney, but vwo months
in Africa have provided many
"wild" encounters for the twin
brothers.
Such opportunities, whether
they have involved riding in
the back of a truck with
sedated lions or catching up-
close glimpses of Great White
sharks, have been enjoyable
for Morgan and Zach, who

and variety," Mike wrote.
While in South Africa, Mike
wrote about how wherever the
family went, proprietors and
government agencies took no
responsibility for "stupid
behavior. Put another way,
they have the audacity to
expect people to be
accountable for their own
actions and to use common
sense.
In other words, it would be
difficult to successfully sue a
restaurant, for example, if you
spilled hot coffee on yourself.
"South Africa has a standard
statement posted everywhere
that says, in so many words,
'Regardless of what happens to
you while on the premises, it's
not our fault,' which also helps
explain whey the air waves are
not jammed with attorney ads
strongly suggesting you should
sue everyone in sight because
they' looked at you the wrong
way," Mike wrote.
The family has made several
visits to doctors' offices
throughout their trip and has
paid for those visits and any
subsequent prescriptions out of
pocket rather than relying upon
insurance. Three such visits
were made during their four-

America and South America,
with the most expensive being
$40. In Jeffreys Bay in South
Africa, Mike saw a doctor and
received a 14-day supply of
antibiotics to treat a spider or
tick bite. The doctor's visit

extensive, have not quenched
their desire for even more such

points will definitely come
back to," Zach wrote. "Two
months is not enough time
anywhere, but I feel 'we have
seen a lot .and experienced
many great things."
For example, the entire

was approximately $30. The
prescription was $1.
Doctor's appointments were
scheduled for every family
member at Bumrungrand
International Hospital in
Bangkok in order to obtain
drugs for malaria. The total
cost of those visits and the
prescription of the malaria
drugs was $182, which also
included Harrison undergoing
a through examination' due to


an illness he had at the time
and three drugs subsequently
prescribed for him.
"As an aside, to have the
prescriptions written for the
malaria medication by a doctor
at the Seminole County Health
Department cost $200," Mike
wrote. "The generic version
for individual pills of the
malaria medication in the U.S.
cost nearly $10 each versus
$1.33 from the Thai hospital."
The doctor Mike saw at
Bumrungrad International
Hospital thought Mike was
joking when he told him the
total cost of a prostatectomy
Mike underwent in the U.S. in
January 2007 was more than
$50,000. The same procedure
at the Bangkok hospital costs
$5,000.
Such experiences have been
eye-openers because of the
way they can be contrasted and
compared to those of the U.S.
Other experiences have been
eye-openers for different
reasons, such as they are
simply touching to the heart.
The family, while in
Swaziland, Africa, visited the
town of Bulembu.. The towvn
was built and operated by a
mining company for more than
60 years. The company ceased
operation, though, and the
town was abandoned. The loss
of jobs and the concurring


trip around the world, rescues
animals from canned hunting
parks, circuses and other
abusive environments.
"It is the largest wildlife
sanctuary in the world, totaling
6,000 hectares, or 14,826
acres," Morgan and Zach's
father, Mike,o wrote. "It all
started from meager
beginnings w ith the rescue of
one baby zebra."
One day at the camp,
Morgan and Zach were
allowed to help staff move
four lions to a larger enclosure.

HIV/AIDS pandemic in
Swaziland hit the town hard.
Many people are working to
help develop a thriving,
sustaining economy once again
in Bulembu.
"Bulembu is visited by
countless volunteers each year
who help renovate the existing
building and/or work with the
children," Mikewrote.
Gerry Richter and his wife,
Robyn, are addressing the
orphan crisis that resulted
because of the HIV/AIDS
pandemic. They have created
the ABC (Abadoned Babies
for Christ) Ministry, which
provides a home for
approximately 25 children
under the age of 4. Some of the
children there were willingly
'given up by their families
because they could not afford
another mouth to feed. Some
are true orphans in that their
parents died of HIV/AIDS. Six
children at the home are
HIV/AIDS positive.
As the children become
older, they move to other
homes in Bulembu that
provide care for their
appropriate age groups.
Children come to Bulembu via


social workers, police or
someone reporting that a child
is wandering around with no
parents.
"Gerry gave us a tour of
their very iarge home and told
us about many of the children
we met and the people who
held care for them," Mike
wrote. "Each is unique in
every way, and if not for
Robyn and G(err\, would
barely survive or more likely\
be dead.
"Swaziland is slightly larger
than the state of Connecticut.
and Robyn and Gerry have
hearts to match, and love and
compassion beyond
measure. Because of them, the
children in their care are given
a second chance and one da)
will be productive citizens of a
little town in the mountains of
the Kingdom of Swaziland."

My Mother, My Friend
I love you andmiss you. You left
me a long time ago. You went to
live with God. They needed a rose
in Heaven so the angel reached
down and plucked you.
You left me here to mourn. I
missed the talks we used to have,
the good times we shared just
being together. Those times are no
more, but they will always be with
me and live within my heart.
Those precious moments.I will
always cherish.
Mama, I am so glad you.were my
mother and I am proud to call you
mama, if only for a short time it
seemed. But we loved a lifetime,
and I know that one day we will
meet again and enjoy forever in
the arms of God. I love you,

Morgan. He wrote that moving
the lions, which were
tranquilized by a veterinarian,
required many people.
"They put the lions on
stretchers, and we move them
to the bed of a waiting truck,"
Morgan wrote. "They are so
heavy it takes everybody to lift
them, especially the big male."
Morgan and Zach sat in the
back of a truck that was
transporting the animals. It is a
fast trip on a dirt road.
"We are going around 60
mph and have to hold the lions
from slipping," Morgan wrote.
"Then, the big male starts to
move his head, and I feel
something wet on my hand. I
look down, and he is licking
me. It's not often you are
tasted by a big lion and can
talk ab6iut4t-at.aterward."
Morgan described ,the
opportunity as amazing, but'it
would not be the only
encounter with lions) for him
and his brother.
The twins volunteered at
Drankenstein Lion Park in the
Western Cape of South Africa,


with Zach chronicling it all in
a blog. He wrote that nothing
makes him think of Africa
more than a lion's roar. He and
Morgan heard roars every
night they were at the park,
especially from a male lion
named Chippy.
"Starting at around 3 a.m.,
*one of them would start a
domino effect, and with only
one roar, a chain reaction
would ensue," Zach wrote.
"Throughout the night, we
were awakened at random
intervals by a sound that would
have put fear into the bravest
.person's heart had it been in a
different setting, say, for
instance, in the wild ; but
SChippy and the many other
lions were safely behind an
electric fence, so everyone
staying at the camp could feel
nothing but enjoyment at the
sound emiitting only a hundred
feet away."

The work the twins did at
Sthe park included cleaning out
enclosures, helping with
maintenance, removing
invasive plants and monitoring
visitors so that they did
nothing to provoke or annoy-
. the lions.
"Cleaning. enclosures was

cool because we got a closer
view of the lions from behind
the fence," Zach wrote, "but,
by far, the best experience was
when we were able to go into
the cage with four juveniles
rescued from, of all places,
Romania. They were young-
only about 7 months old-but
already the size of a German
shepherd."
While working at the park, a
close eye had to be kept out for
i Cape cobras and puff adders.
The park staff informed Zach
and Morgan they were the first
volunteers who actually
Wanted to see such snakes.
They never did see snakes at
the park, but they did get the
chance to see great white
sharks by paying a visit to
White Shark Projects in
Gansbaai. Morgan wrote about
the experience, saying he was
so excited to go down into the
water via a cage that he could
not sleep the night before.
When morning came, the
brothers ate breakfast, attended
a safety seminar and then
boarded a boat for a 20-minute
drive to the anchor site. The
captain asked who wanted to
:go first into the water. Morgan
wrote .that he and Zach raised
their hands immediately and
were chosen to do so.
"Within minutes of entering
the cage, the first. white shark
appears," Morgan wrote. "I


was so completely stoked. It
was so awesome-our first
white shark, and it was even
better than I imagined. Seeing
them for the first line, it was
not their size I was
immediately impressed by. It
was their beauty. They are
truly a beautiful animal, and
they swim with such grace it
would leave even a person
who fears the 'Jaws' theme in
awe."
The brothers were able to go
down in. the cage twice,
spending y'oiur hours in the
water. It was one of the
"coolest" things he had ever
done, Morgan wrote.
"I would definitely
recommend this to anyone,
even those who do not like
sharks," he wrote. "I think it
will definitely change your
perceptions and even make
you a shark lover."
The brothers wrote of other
experiences, such as being able
to see a leopard in the wild and
visiting Addo Elephant
National Park and a
serpentarium in Swaziland,
where they did get to see
snakes. Up until that point,
though. looking, for three
Weeks, the only snake they had
seen was a rock python.
Besides seeing such snakes
as cobras, puff adders, black
mambas and East African
gabooh. vipers, Morgan had the
chance to hold several non-
venomous snakes as well as
catch and hold a monitor
lizard. It was not like handling

Tigers cap spring with 42-6 win


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
Qtiarterback Chris
Alexander and receivers Adam
Cason and Bryan Holmes
hooked up .. for three
touchdowns covering at least
50 yards each in the first half
as the Union County football
team concluded its spring with
a 42-6 win over visiting
Hamilton County in a spring
classic played on May 26.


The Tigers did not come out
on fire as Alexander was
intercepted on the first series
of the game and the offense
went three-and-out on its next
possession.
"We practiced once in the
last week and a half (because
of the weather)," Union head
coach Andrew Zow said. "We
came out a little slow. I knew
that we would."
Union's third series did not


have a promising start as
Alexander was sacked for a 6-
yard loss. However, Lonnie
Gosha carried the ball for 9
yards on the next play before
Alexander hit Holmes in stride
past midfield for a 79-yard
touchdown with 2:43
remaining in the first quarter.
It was the first of six straight
completions for Alexander,
who finished 6-of-7 for 267
yards and three touchdowns in

a half of play.
Zow said next season will be
a chance for Cason and
Holmes to shine because they
have a quarterback in
Alexander who can get them
the ball.
"If we can protect
(Alexander), those guys will
be able to show their talents,"
Zow said.
They showed a glimpse of
what next season could look
like. Cason caught a pass from
Alexander along the sideline
for a 60-yard touchdown in the
second quarter, while Holmes
took a short pass, crossed the
width of the field and sprinted
down the sideline for a 50-yard
score that put Union up 26-0
with 27 seconds remaining in
the first half.
Cason and Holmes, who
played the first half only,
combined for three receptions
for 189 yards and three
touchdowns.
The running game was not
totally neglected inr the first
half as Dontrell Larry,
following a 46-yard reception
by Lonnie Gosha, scored
Union's second touchdown on
a 14-yard run.

Bradford
spring game
cancelled
BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
The Bradford football team
did not get a chance to play a
spring classic this year after
scheduled opponent Bishop
Kenny backed out of a May 21
spring classic that was to be
played in Starke.
Bradford head coach Steve
' Hoard said he was contacted
by Bishop Kenny1s coach a
couple of days before the game
was to be played. The coach
did not want to play the game
since his team had practiced
only once because of the
weather.
"It wasn't much of a notice,"
Hoard said, "but what can you
do?"
Graduation and exams
prevented Bishop Kenny from
being able to play the game at
a later date.
..Fortunatel%. Bradford did._
get the chance to scrimmage
against Santa Fe earlier this
spring, Hoard said, but he
added not being able to build
upon that experience ended the
spring on a down note.
"It was very frustrating
because the kids really did
some good things in the
spring," Hoard said.

The K-Kids Club at Starke Elementary School hosted a duck race May 16 at the
Starke Golf and Country Club, raising $1,300, $500 of which will go toward the
Kiwanis Club of Starke's endowed scholarship at Santa Fe College. The rest of the
funds will support future K-Kids activities. ABOVE: K-Kids (l-r) Connor Coleman,

up 60 yards in the first half.
Dalton Cochran, Nevin Johns
and. Randy Randolph made
tackles behind .the line of
scrimmage on Hamilton's
second possession, while Johns
was in on two consecutive
tackles for minimal gain on the
Trojans' third possession.
S The Trojans did eventually
drive past midfield twice in the
first half, but tackles by
Cochran, -Johns, Walter
Bradley and Chris Crawford
helped the Tigers force
Hamilton to turn the ball over
on downs on one of those
possessions and punt on the
other.
Hamilton gained just 6 yards.
in the third quarter, but found
some success .in the fourth
quarter, gaining 106 yards.
More than half of those came
on a 57-yard run that set up a
1-yard touchdown.
Zow said his team was
"pretty good on the defensive
side," though he said there
were still some mental
mistakes. However, he liked
the play of his linebackers,
especially considering' that
Johns and Shane Lee each had
an interception in the second
half.
The second half had a bit of
a shaky start for the Union,
offense, which had players
such as Alexander, Cason aind
Holmes standing on the
sideline as observer.' The
Tigers fumbled the ball away


on their first two possessions,
the second fumble occurring
after they had driven to the
Hamilton 3-yard line. ,
DJ. Paige, who had two
carries for 100 yards in the
half, started the Tigers' third
possession with a 55-yard ruhi
to the Hamilton 15. Keaton
Reynolds scored on a run from
there with 5:34 to play.
Bradley's run on the
conversion rhade the score 26-
6.
The first play from
scrimmage following Lee's
interception was a 45-yard
touchdown run by Paige.
Bradley again added the
conversion, capping the
scoring at 42-6.
Randolph had a good second
* half running the ball with five
carries for 39 yards.

As I finish the chapter of my life that is high school and embark on the
new journey to adulthood, I reflect upon the many happy memories I have
from the past 13 years, and more specifically the last four. The honor of
graduating top of my class is one I am especially thankful for; however, it
would not be right for me to neglect giving thanks where it is due. Most
assuredly the top praise goes to my Heavenly Father and church family
who have provided me with peace in times of stress and comfort in times
of sorrow. Also those who have been role models to me: Lauren Van Fleet,
Hope Smith, Ester Appling, and those who have set such amazing examples
of Godly, wonderful women. My mom, dad and sister are also at the top of
my list. Not a day goes by that I am not thankful for the love and support
they have given me. They put up with my crazy schedules, carted me around
to my games or events, and never complained, but always encouraged.
They say it takes a community to r ise a child, I think this is especially true
for me. From Mrs. Cheryl Canova who taught me in tiny tots and continued
to help me as I dual-enrolled through Santa Fe, to Mrs. Edith Smith who
taught me in youth group and gave me my first job at the butterfly farm,
from every area of the community I feel loved and supported.
I am grateful to my teachers, those who have pushed me further than I
thought I could-go and encouraged me to meet those high expectations,
especially Mr. Marshall and Mr. Harris. I am also grateful to my classmates'
the source of my many good memories. Sometimes it was a challenge to fit
everything in, but I'm glad I did. To my friends and fellow graduates, I give
all the love, thanks and encouragement I have. I also ask this of them: Look
at your life, those who have supported you, and give them thanks. You have
accomplished an amazing achievement. Be proud of that. Be thanikful for it.
Congratulations.


?~AeAec~ J~a4w~


As the year is coming to a close, I would like to say a special thanks to all the
people who have helped me get where I am today. Without God I would not
have anything, and I am constantly reminded of His forgiveness and grace.
To my parents, I would like to thank you for always being there and putting
up with all the school and extracurricular activities. I know it wasn't easy,
but you always came through. My family and friends have'been the best I
could have asked for and more. I appreciate everything you have done for
me and I hope I make you proud.
Being class salutatorian is something I am very proud of. I feel that I owe
a special thanks to the faculty and staff of Southside Elementary, Bradford
Middle School and Bradford High School for this. Thank you for pushing
me to do my best, and always providing the encouragement I needed to
succeed. I hope that you will continue to impact the lives of students the way
you have mine. Even though I may move on, I will never forget the people
who had faith in me and those who lent a helping hand to the Class of 2009.

Dear Seniors:'
Winston Churchill. said, "We
make a living by what we get,
but we make a life by what we
give."
As we wind up this school
year with another outstanding
senior class, I am particularly
proud to have known every s
single one of you. Believe
me, you have made me "earn
a living," but what you have
given me is priceless. You have
given me the gift of laughter,
as I watched you perform at
Tornado Whirl. You have given
me the gift of acceptance, as
'you welcomed me as your new
,principal. You have given me
memories; "Wouldn't you like to


know some of them!" Ha! You
have given me the gift of mercy,
as I have been in the learning
mode this year. Finally, you
have given me the pleasure of
being part of your life.
Seniors, I hope I have given
you the drive and desire to
change the world. Never
underestimate the power of one
' single action. I would like for
you to leave this school with
just one more assignment for the
rest of your life. bo your part
to help change the world-even
a little bit-for the better, and
remember: Mrs. Graham is
always watching, even'if it is
through rhinestone sunglasses.

Newspapers Connect Communities


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

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


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