 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. Mark Crawford is the editor. Source: Bradford County Telegraph, July 26, 1979, centennial issue. The Lake Region Monitor is not known to exist and has not been described by any other source.--E.

Honoring the allen ...


On Monday, Bradford Countians lined the roadside in honor of war hero Pfc. Donald Wayne Vincent,_a
U.S. Marine who was killed in battle in Halmand Province, Afghanistan on July 25. The procession from
the U.S. Naval Air Station in Jacksonville to his hometown of Gainesville passed through the county
escorted by local law enforcement and military veterans. Residents came out to wave flags and salute
Vincent's procession in acknowledgement the 26-year-old's service and sacrifice to his country. Vincent
joined the Marine Corps in 2008 and was deployed to Afghanistan on May 19 of this year. He had a
connection to Bradford County through his father, Lee Vincent, a Navy veteran who served several
years ago as the first city manager for the city of Starke. In addition to his parents, Lee and Betty Sue,
Vincent's survivors include his three siblings. Funeral services were held Tuesday in Gainesville at
Westside Baptist Church. Vincent's memory can further be honored by donating to your favorite charity
in his name. See more in Regional News.

County officials attend ethics probe


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

A decision to buy surplus
property at a public auction
came back to haunt two Bradford
County commissioners last
month.
Commissioners Doyle Thomas
and Eddie Lewis appeared
before the Florida Commission
on Ethics on July 24.
In 2007, both commissioners
participated in a public auction
held by the New River Solid
Waste Association while
serving as association board
members. Both submitted sealed
offers through the advertised
competitive bid process and were
two of the four commissioners
voting to decide whether or not
to accept or reject the bids.
The bid opening was held in
November 2007. Out of 18 items
in the surplus equipment auction,
Thomas bid on 12 and won seven.
Most were very used vehicles.
Four of those items were listed
with minimum asking prices,
which Thomas did not meet, but
nevertheless won because he was
the sole bidder.
Thomas was outbid on five
other items, four of which were
listed with minimum asking
prices. In all four cases, the
winning bidder either met or
exceeded the minimum asking
price. Thomas' bids only
exceeded the minimum asking


price on one piece of equipment.
Lewis bid on five of the items,
three of which were listed with
minimum asking prices. He was
the sole bidder on two of those
items, for which he did not meet
the minimum asking price, but
was awarded the equipment as
the lone bidder. He did submit
a bid above the minimum on a
third item, but was outbid by
another party.
Lewis also won the two items
he bid on without minimum
asking prices.
Both denied any wrongdoing at
the time, including and collusion
regarding their bids that would
have violated state Sunshine
laws. Nevertheless, Thomas and
Lewis bid on a total of 17 of
the 18 items up for auction yet
never bid against each another
for the same piece of equipment.
This they attributed to mere
coincidence.
While the ethics, commission
steers clear of any potential
Sunshine violations, it found
probable cause that Thomas
and Lewis had a conflicting
contractual relationship by their
purchase of the surplus property
from the association using
personal checking accounts and
that they had a voting conflict
when they voted on matters
regarding the auction of the
surplus property.
According to the ethics
commission report, allegations


that they misused their positions
to allocate surplus property for
auction that they latersuccessfully
bid on were dismissed with a
finding of no probable cause.
The report also states, "There
was no evidence that either
Thomas or Lewis acted corruptly
because their actions were
consistent with the advice of the
association attorney."
Association attorney Jon
Wershow was not present at the
ethics hearing, but because the
commissioners' actions were
apparently taken based on his
advice, the report indicates the
ethics commission voted to take
no further action on the charges.
Lewis indicated that the matter
might not be closed, however, and
that a future hearing on punitive
action might be forthcoming.
Information frorn Thomas'
and Lewis' attorney, Terry
Brown, was not available as of
press time.

Thomas' purchases:
-1988 International refuse
truck for $300; minimum asking
price (MAP) $3,500.
-1991 CCC refuse rear loader

Modifications made to student progression plans


BY %1 I\ RK.I. ('RAN~lFORI)
/&l t,,r 'lph !. l,,r

I le Bradlu'lr (oiiid \ School
I oaud has i'i\ ic Lced ald appro\ ed
chaLingC in the plans that govern
sludell( progression from one
1raudc to the ne\[.
I here are three different
progression plans. each based
on a range of grade levels. Some
changes spanned all three plans.
For c\aimple. the BRID(iGE
program -an intermediate
disciplinary step that called for
brief assignment to the allernati\ve
school-is no more. but space
\\as made for language regarding
the immediate admittance of
homeless students and assistance
with medical physical and
im muni action documentation.
l under other special
ci rcumstances, temporary
medical exceptions may also be
granted for the immunization
and physical requirements.
There were also changes
made based on the transition in
some areas from Sunshine State
Standards to the state's Next
Generation academic standards.
The Next Generation Sunshine
State Standards referenced in
the progression plans refers
to revisions that are aimed at
preparing students "to effectively
engage,. communicate, and
compete globally with student's
around the: world," or so the
standards are described by
the Florida Department of
Education.
Approved changes and course
descriptions can be reviewed at
vwww.floridastandards.org.
The evolution from progress
tests tothemoreregularcol election
of student performance data
required for the implementation
of the district's Response to
Intervention programs has also
been noted in the new, versions of
the progression plans:


Virtual Education
Each plan also includes the
state requirement that school
district's prol tide for full-time
irt ual education. Northeast
Florida Edtucatioln ('onsortiulm.
\\ which covers Bradford and ( union
counties, is coordinating this
requirement for its members.
Though the enrollment period
\\as the month of .lul\. this may
be extended on a case-h\-case
basis.
The program is for full-
time students in kindergarten
through eighth grade. and for
those in grades nine through 12
so long as the\ do not meet the
requirements for the district's
dropout prevention program.
Virtual instruction students
are not home-school students.
but students of the district who
receive their education at home
via computer technology. It is
not for students who only want
to take select courses in a virtual
environment who may do so

Elementary School
Other than those mentioned.
there were few changes to the

requirement for social promotion
\\as added for exceptional
education students. hvowe\ er.
and that allows a student's
IEP team to modify general
education requirements with
FSE benchmarks.

Middle School
Among the changes in the
progression plan for students in
grades six through eight, students
will be required cot complete one
semester of physical education
per \ear instead of 225 minutes
per week based on the number
available class periods.
.Journalism and business are not
oflfred at the middle school level
and were removed as possible
electives in the progression plan.
Agriculture courses have been
added..but not for credit.
Promotion requirements in
the plan were clarified. Students
who fail one or two courses
may be retained and scheduled
for course recover\ to retake
those courses, If onie course is

under the same admittance
requirements into Florida Virtual
School. vocational programs and
dual-enrollment classes. The
definition of dual enrollment has


been modified to reflect the state

scores on a concordant test to
substitute for passing the F'AT.
Also. any student entitled to a
certificate of completion may
elect to remain in school as a
full- or part-time student for up
to one year.
For the college bound or
those seeking a Bright Futures
Scholarship, the courses Algebra
IA and Algebra IB will only
county as one credit toward

(They will still count as t\wo
credits toward graduation.) Also.
beginning this school \ear, all
students in the junior class will be
required to take a science course
during their junior year. the same
year they take the science portion
of the FCAT.
Agricultural science will count
toward this requirement.
Half-credit courses in health/
life management and computer
science/technology have been
deleted from the graduation
requirements. The courses \ill
remain available to pursue as
electives. however.
T'he high school progression
plan still outlines the number of
credits required to go from one
credit to the next. but it no longer
spells out from which types of
courses those credits Iniust come.
i.e.. one math. one English. one
science. etc.
The plan now allows rigorous
international courses to be
counted in deciding the ranks of
valedictorian and salutatorian.
and it states that the high school
principal has the aulhorit\ to
revoke senior privileges li'r .evel
II acts of misconduct.
There were also lainuage
changes in the sections related
to promotion and assignment ofi
ESE students.

The complex will occupy
around II of the approximate.
20 acres owned at that location.
The acreage located closest to
Alligator Creek is not a part of

UCHS principal responds to article about tree removal


Dear Editor:
This letter is in response to
the article in the July 30 Union
County Times titled. "ICHS
lost a bit of history when oak
trees were taken down."
As principal of UCHS for
the past three years, I must
take exception to several
misrepresentations in this
piece. In the spring of this
year, one of our most beloved
teachers tripped on an uneven
sidewalk, fracturing her pelvis.
The sidewalk was pushed up by
underlying tree roots.
Any time the safety of
students or school personnel
is in danger, immediate action
is required. The two trees that
were cut down were nearing
the end of their life spans. The
maintenance department had
reported that many branches
were dead or dying and other


areas along the trunks were
diseased.
Every strong wind would
shower the courtyard with
branches and debris. Some
branches blew onto the
rooftops and caused leaks
or damage to the drainage
system. I conferred with the
maintenance department and
then recommended to the
superintendent that the trees
should be removed.
I stand by my decision. I will
never jeopardize the safety of
students or staff by making
an irrational decision based
on emotions. To keep theses
trees when they posed a serious
danger to our students and staff
would have been criminally
negligent.
Secondly, decisions in which
student safety is concerned are
not open to debate. My primary


responsibility is to keep our
students and staff safe. The
superintendent and school
board, as well as the parents
of 600 students, expect me to
give safety my full attention.
This responsibility I do not take
lightly. When people are more
concerned about trees than
human lives, I think perhaps
their priorities'are out of order.
The article further states that
several students were quick to
point out other safety hazards
on our campus. I agree with
this point. In fact, we all would
be hard-pressed to visit any
building over 10 years old and
not find safety hazards. Even
our own homes are fraught
with hazards.
What is not stated is that
the Union County school
maintenance department is
constantly addressing these
issues. As our buildings age,


hazards develop. In a perfect
world in which our budgets
are not cut multiple times
each year, we would have the
manpower and bankroll to
keep a hazard-free campus. As
it is, I feel our under-staffed
maintenance department does
an exceptional job in keeping
our school campuses in good
operating condition.
Thirdly, let's look at how
the majority of our students
viewed this situation. Most.
of the students at UCHS have
a more rational view of this
event. Our Lake Butler FFA is
one of the best chapters in the
nation. Nearly one out of five
students is a member. These
students learn how to manage
our natural resources wisely
and efficiently. They understand
that plants and animals were
created for our pleasure and use.


They understand that in order
to have a steak dinner, some
poor bovine must lose its life.
They also understand .hat when
disease attacks, sometimes the
only option is to cull the herd.
It's not surprising that none of
our FFA students complained
to me about the trees.
I did havetwoorthree students
from the Environmerntal Club
speak to me regarding the trees.
I explained that I appreciated
the beauty of trees as much as
anyone, but this was a matter
of school safety. I find it very
strange that the classroom
debates that occurred did so
without anyone being invited
who held a different viewpoint.
This makes me wonder if these
debates were simply a one-
sided forum geared to hear only
the voices of dissent.
Let me finish by stating


that I am extremely proud of
our UCHS students. They are
genuinely concerned with our
environment and want to keep
the Earth God gave us in good
condition.
As principal of UCHS, I
commend your passion toward
your beliefs. I do believe
that someone has presented
these few students with an
unbalanced perspective on
this situation and perhaps has
injected some personal agenda
into an otherwise outstanding
education opportunity. I only
wish these adults.and students
would spend this great amount
of energy in volunteering to
help keep our campus clean
and influencing others to do
the same.
Sincerely,
Alex Nelson,
Principal Union County
High School

Spotlight on business: Elbert Southall of State Farm


Agent knows
hard work,
perseverance pay
off in success

BY TERESA STONE
IRWIN
Times Staff Writer
Elbert Southall learned at a
very early age that hard work
pays off. He was only 10 when
his father died, and he found
.himself plowing fields at age
11. By 14, Southall was cutting
highway rights-of-way.
Growing up in a rural
southern Arkansas town
Southall described as being at
the bottom of the barrel, he had
no electricity until age six and
no running water or gas until
after he went off to college.
A timber company now
known as Georgia Pacific is
what kept 80 percent of' the
townspeople employed,
and Southall knew that in
such a small town with little
opportunity, he was looking at
being a. log cutter or hauler
for the rest of his life. Not that
there's anything wrong with
that kind of life, Southall just
wanted more for himself, so he
'did something about it.
"I know first hand you can
do something... anything, if
you want to bad enough," he
said.
Southall played high school
football in Arkansas and
received a football scholarship
to play for the University of
Alabama where he majored
in English with a minor in
physical education.
Southall went into coaching

football for a combined 13 years
at the University of Arkansas,
Memphis State University and
Northeast Louisiana University
before setting out into the
insurance business.
"I enjoyed coaching, but it
was so time consuming," said
Southall. "I had two sons at
home who barely knew who I
Swas."
It just so happens the
opportunity to go with State
Farm came at the time when he
knew he needed a change. He
was coaching the son of a State
Farm executive in Monroe, La.,
who convinced him to become
an agent for the company in
a little town called Dumas in
southeast Arkansas.
"I nearly starved to death for
five and a half years," Southall
recalled, "but being in athletics
a long time, I learned to accept
defeat and move on. It's the
same in business: either you
let it beat you down, or you
whip it."
Southall persevered until
finally the chance to make a
better income with State Farm
presented itself in Florida.
He relocated his family to
Gainesville to serve as State
Farm's district manager for
central Florida.
Ten years later, Southall
returnedtoagencyworkin 1993,
after learning that Starke State
Farm agent Merritt Williams
was retiring, and that's where
he's been ever since.
"So far," Southall said,
"it's been a good 16 years.
Although Southall did work
hard and found a way out of his
small town through football,
he still attributes all his
accomplishments to athletics.
"Most of the jobs I've had
throughout my lifetime have

resulted from acquaintances in
athletics," he said.
He is a supporter of local
athletics such as the Bradford
High School football Tornado
Pride Club. He is also a
supporter of the BHS baseball
team and that of a few others
from his various college
affiliations.
He and his ,wife, Pat, have
two successful sons, Pete and
Mike, along with a grandson
and four granddaughters.
Pete, 36, vwho lives in the
Dallas area, has been coaching
high school' baseball for five
years. Southall said his eldest
son also played professionally
for two years after being one
of the first seven drafted by the
Arizona Diamondbacks when
they started their expansion
team.
Mike, 34, lettered in four
sports while attending high
school in Gainesville: football,
basketball, golf and baseball.
Mike also played baseball
while attending the University
of North Florida. He now
works in the management end
of insurance in Jacksonville.
Adding to his success in the
insurance industry, Southall
is also a Chartered Life

Underwriter (CLU). As a
CLU, he is one of a prestigious
number of highly qualified
specialists who can provide
guidance in individual as well
as business financial estate and
retirement planning.
For someone considering a
career as an insurance agent,
Southall first recommends
getting a college education.
"With a degree, the demand
is more likely to be there,"
he said. "A degree shows.
that if a person can discipline
themselves enough to go to
college and get a degree, they
are disciplined enough to be
self-motivated and would make
a good employee."
Unless pursued in college
curriculum, Southall said,
becoming an agent requires
state-approved classes
consisting of 220 hours of
coursework for property and
casualty insurance and another
40 for life and health insurance
before taking the state exam.
If financing is available to
start a business, a person would
then have the opportunity to start
an agency as an independent
contractor.

said Southall.
In the past 16 years in Starke,
Southall's State Farm office has

"When you have the right

Area civic groups meet to help LAM effort
- a- , IP-I I V"9'~Rs~ ~ II - ~. - *'1 -fl -#q-


BY .JAIMES WILLIAMS
.11onitor E-ditor

Local business and civic
leaders came together last
Monday , to jump start
fundraising efforts for the Lake
Area Ministries' building fund.

Kiwvanis President Ken
Buckner led the group,
.followed by Rotary member
Chuck Willis. Also speaking
for LAM was Dr. Tom Farmer,
a retired Methodist minister
and a recent addition to the
food pantry board.
Attending \'were
representatives from theJaycees,
the Rotary, the Woman's Club.
the Shrine Club. the Lions
Club. the Melrose Masonic
Lodge, the Melrose Business
and Community Association,
AMVETS, the American
Legion and others.
The day's topic was a golf
tournament to be held at the
Keystone Golf and Country
Club on Oct. 3.

Noting his contribution of
land on which to build the new
facility, the tournament will be
named in honor of the late
Bob Canady, co-owner of the
Keystone Building Center and
a Kiwanian.
Funds raised by the event will
be donated to LAM's building
fund. The fund-raising project
has been on-going for the last
three years.


On Monday, Ken Buckner
alluded to an instance \\here
Public Supermarkets wanted to
donate large amounts of fresh
chicken, a gift LAM had to turn
down for lack of refrigeration
space to store it.
LAM Co-l)irector Chip
Wester recently pointed out
that because of the cramped
space, applicants are asked to
provide personal information
while seated in a small room,
surrounded by volunteers and
other clients.
These days, Farmer said, on
distribution days, men, women
and children are lined up on the
sidewalk in the heat outside the
building.
During the Monday meeting.
a representative from the
Melrose Masonic Lodge,
which is located next door to
the LAM facility, volunteered
private office space Just for
receiving applications.

Some of the organizations
last Monday had questions
and suggestions about the
event. - Richard Judge, an
organizational state officer
representing AMVETS Post
86 volunteered supplies and
expertise that could be valuable
to the effort.
Tina Bullock said Woman's
Club members might be able to
provide side dishes for an after-
golfing luncheon.
Other organizations said the
timing presented problems,


because they mrL


\will not have
membership
meetings until
September.
LAM's fund-
raising goal
has bounced
around over the
years. First, the
stated amount
was $500,000;
then it dropped
to $300,000 or
less. Buckner
told the crowd
the organization
is now trying to
raise $600,000,
although, he
said, they have
the equivalent
of as much as
$300.000 in
hand. Buckner
attributed at least
part of the costs
to county and
city permitting.
The costs and
fund amounts

include the value of the donated
property. LAM also owns its
current facility, which, it \\ill
sell when a new space becomes
available.
American Legion President
George Toth asked whether the
site was zoned for a building
of adequate size with. space
allowed for the requisite
parking.Others questioned \v\hat
they saw as a high dollar value


for a relatively straightforward
and simple space.
Buckner replied that
building size and planning and
.oning restrictions were still
in, process. He also said he
hoped construction industry
leaders might volunteer labor or
supplies, lowering the amount
of funds needed.
Rotary President Harold
(iilstrap asked whether I.AM


would consider modifying
an existing building, to own
or lease, at another location.
Buckner said LAM had
investigated that possibility.

Among alternates that have
been mentioned over the last
three years were the .Street
Graphics building, the former
Clay County health office, both
also on Commercial Circle. or


the unfinished cit\ yard building
at K-Town Park on Sunrise
Street, behind Hitchcock's.
The group'\ ill meet again for
further planning next Monday,
Aug. 10. at the Lake House
Restaurant. Mid\way on S.R.
21. at I1 a.m. Other business
and government leaders and
the public are imn ied to join the
effort. A luncheon is provided
at cost.

What's a certified public accountant and who should have one?

"I'm probably. supposed to

Instead, she suggested.
an\ bod\ with any kind of
investments or .who needs
anything other than a W2 for
tax preparation may need a

That includes some
individuals and all businesses,
she said, because the tax laws
are so complicated and things
change every day. 'To stay on
top of those changes you need
a professional who's working '
for you.
In. Starke, Lex Green said
('PAs are especially useful
to business owners who get
wrapped up in the day-to-day
profit and loss statement-
the record of expenses and
revenues-but they sometimes'
fail to interpret the bigger
picture of assets and liabilities
on the balance sheet.
A CPA differs from a tax.

handy to have'when someone is
in trouble, but don't generally

Williams said.
Anyone can hangoutashingle

Green said he provides full-

and other counseling, but
he is also a certified advisor

CPAs also get a broad
overview of an area's business
health and the community.
In the last five years,Williams
said the economic downturn
has been most evident to her
as people come and go, She
has seen a succession of clients
move into the area and open a
new business, only to find they
cannot succeed.
"There are only so many
lawns to mow in the Keystone

not to be negative; I don't like
to tell them their idea may not
work. But they are around for
a while and then I find out
they're gone."

the summer. is giving way
to one of a middle-class
and blue-collar bedroom
community. Make no
mistake, Williams said, the
wealthy are still here, but
in ever-decreasing numbers
as they age and time moves
on.
This adds great weight
to issues like the quality of
the schools or the price of
gas. Schools attract younger
families, but not retirees.
And since there's really no
place in the area for people
to work, commutes are now
a necessity.
Green said the Slarke
business community is
hardworking and family
focused. He sees the
business community there
as one in transition as big
box stores like Walmart or
chain restaurants like Arby's
move in.
Rather than being
adversarial, he said, it
usually works that big stores
C attract a wider customer
base to the area, which is
also enjoyed .by smaller
businesses as well.
One of the biggest
problems for the business
community in Green's area is
utility rates. which force small
businesses to pinch pennies to
remain competiti\ e.
However. this is a problem
often found i'n small counties,
Green said. To be successful,
a new small business owner
must sell a product or service
that fills a niche, one whose
absence would be felt if the
business went away.

KidsFest provides fun,


and school supplies


The dJa brought 87-degree
weather r and an array of fun
games and activities to set the
stage 'or Spires IGA's first
annual back-to-school KidsFest
block part\ in Iake Butler.
With more than 500customers
ii) attendance. Tommy Spires,
o\\ ner of Spires IGA, said this
event was one of the most
successful gatherings ever held
at the store.
"We've never had anything
of this magnitude held at our
store." said Spires. "I think
this will be an event that our
customers will remember. I
know I sure will."
Educational activities were a
big draw for parents and kids
alike, as Spires IGA played
host to the Union County
Public Library, Lake Butler
Hospital. Union/Bradford
Health Department, and the
Lake Butler Volunteer Fire
Department.
John Thomas, marketing and
special events coordinator for
Spires IGA, said this event
was a product of community
members and its organizations.


IGA employee Jason Watson sprays shaving cream on this boy's head as they prepare to
play a game of seeing who can toss the most cheese balls into the cream and make them
stick.


This youngster gets up close and friendly with a
goat brought in by Uncle Mike's Hugging Farm.


"Anytime we can get
community organizations
involved, everyone winss" he


said.
Each organization put a
unique twist on its booth. The


health department cooled kids
Soff with a free slushy and gave
away free bike helmets with
instructions on how to use them
properly. The library had a ring
toss game set up with school
supplies and toy prizes. The
hospital helped get kids ready
for back to school with free


pencils, erasers and rulers.
"We are very proud to
bring IGA KidsFest to our
community, giving the children
in our neighborhoods an
opportunity to gather together
at our store for one last summer
hurrah," said Spires. "We're
a community-focused store,


and we see it as our duty to
give back to our customers.
Anytime we can combine fun
and education for kids, we feel
like we've done a good thing."

office staff by 1:30 p.m. so
the information can he verified.
If the emergency arises after
1:30 p.m.. an adult who is on
the child's emergency card
must come to the school with
identification to pick up the
child. Please understand these
changes are designed to make
the students safer. When last-

* The school .has a
designated area at the bus ramp
for student drop-off in the
mornings and student pick-up
in the afternoons. Employees
are in position to assist with
\our child's safety during these
busy times of the day.
The parking lot in front of
the cafeteria is not a student
drop-off area. If you wish to

S*\ alk \our student to class, that-r
is acceptable. We ask that
you not park along the curb
in front of the cafeteria as it is


dangerous to students who may

be seen.
In addition, numerous trucks
use this area for deliveries and
if parents are parked along
the curb, there is no place for
the drivers to unload their

Rec makes plea for assistance to county


IY NIARK,I. RAWFO)R I)


As was discussed at a prior
cit\ commission meeting.- the
Bradlford County (Commission
\as approached lMonday about
supporting recreation by assisting
the city of Starke in constructing
a new facility.
Citizen Esther Kelly said she
committed to the city of Starke
that the count\ commission was
concerned about all of the kids in
the county, and that if the board-
were presented with all of the
needed information, it would do
something.
"I feel like you will look at
the whole picture, and if there
is anything you can do, you
will do," Kelly said. "Money is
tight everywhere, but we cannot
afford to lose our children on the
streets."
Alica McMillian, the city's
recreation director, said she
knows times are tough and
cuts are necessary, but the
commissions have to be careful
how they cut back where kids are
concerned.
She said in her position, she
doesn't care where the kids come
from; she has to provide a safe
haven for them all. She asked for
the county's help in providing
a new facility for recreation
programming, and mentioned
that the former facility at Pratt
Street had been given up for the
library.
McMillian said she knows
county commissioners haven't
seen all of the information or
even the plans for the facility the
city would like to build at the
Edwards Road park.
Hopefully, the city and county
commissions will meet in a future
workshop to discuss these issues
and do something for Bradford
County youth, she said.
Even if they start by erecting
the shell of a building, that's a
beginning, she said, and there
could be grants available to help
complete it.
Chairman Doyle Thomas said
everyone on the commission has

the best interest of children in
their hearts and if there were a
way to contribute in the form of
in-kind services, for example. he
believed the board would support
that.
Commissioner Eddie Lewis
agreed and also said he didn't
want there to be an impression
that the county took away a
recreation. facility to build a
library. McMillian said that
was supposed to be a win-win
situation for all involved, with
the property trades resulting in a
new library and fire station and
the city agreeing to build a new
recreation building. Only two out
of those three things have come
to pass.
Recreation is still looking for
its win, she said, adding that it's
in the plans but the plan needs to
move forward.
Commissioner Ross Chandler
said the county has not refused
to help the city, and conversation
to that effect is disappointing.
Information the county requested
was incomplete, he said. Echoing .
Starke's mayor at the prior city
commission meeting. Chandler
said one of the unknowns is what
the ongoing costs of this facility
are going to be.
"We want to do whatever
we can do, but we need to have
enough information about a
project before we can say, 'Here's

Moore said she was seeking in
a principal for Bradford High.
She was also looking for a
motivational personality who
sets high expectations and has
the leadership qualities to help
the school achieve those goals.
"He's just that motivational
person I think we've been looking
for," Moore said.
Moore said around 20
applications for the high school
post were submitted. The pool
was narrowed by looking
at experience and checking
references. She said Thoburn

his previous employers.

He said there are some things
the county would like the city
to cooperate on as well and
cooperation needs to be mutual
on all of these things.
Another issue he raised
was the program fee amounts.
McMillian said this is a low-
income community. The grants
the department has received are
based on this. Programs fees
need to he at a level where parents
don't have to choose between
enrolling their children or paying
their bills, otherwise there are
going to be a lot of latchkey kids,
she said.
Following the meeting, the
board had a workshop with
Christa Pusateri of Bailey. Bishop
and Lane a civil engineering
and planning firm regarding
grants, in particular, Community
Development Block Grants.
She said funds were available
through the CDBG program for
recreation centers, senior centers
and other such project.
County Manager Brad Carter
later reported that commissioners
expressed interest in following
Pusateri's advice about
pursuing grants for recreation
in conjunction with the city of
Starke, a strategy that could
increase the chances of being
awarded grant funds.

Clemson University has
launched a publicity campaign
for senior running back CJ.

High School graduate. The
university, with . businesses
sponsoring the cost, produced
4,700 life-size posters of
Spiller. Of that number, 700
were sent to media outlets,
while the remaining 4,000
were made available free of

the general public.
As it turned out, 4,000 were"
not enough. The posters are
gone, though a school
spokesman, quoted in the
South Carolina newspaper The
State, said more could be
produced pending sponsorship
to cover the cost..
Until then, any fa'is wanting
posters can still get them,
.though they will have to pony
up some bucks. As of Aug. 4,
one-such poster on eBay had
received five bids, with a top
bid of$31. Two posters were
available for $30 each on

In fact, such support,

reason why Spiller pulled' a .

"That's one of the things
that drew me here," he said.
"The fan base is unbelievable."
Those fans would love to

Bradford's Wynn recognized for service, rank attained


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
7''legi;raph Stifflfritier
Wa\Inc W\nn did pretty
mull � all he could do while
s, icnillg this country, having
\\orn a uniformn for 41 \cars,
ser' i ll iln two wars and
achiescig cthe highest rank an
enlisted soldier can obtain in
the \Arm.N . However, there \\as
Ijus one more thing Wynn,
no\ retired, needed to do-
accept an honorary, saber from
tbe Sergeant Majors
Association of Florida.
\\). n. a Bradford County
native, attended a dinner at
Western Steer Family
Steakhouse July 30. which was
sponsored, by the Florida
Enlisted National Guard
Au\iliari. Retired Command
Sgt. Maj. Larry Hewett made
the saber presentation.
"Wayne did a good job,"
He\\ett said. "He took care of
soldiers."
Taking care of soldiers 'was
something Wynn had done
\\ell before reaching the rank
of command sergeant major,
which h puts one in command of
a battalion-sized element. He
\\as in a position of command
for most of his military career,
whichh began after he graduated
from Bradford High School in
1967.
"At the time, everyone was
supporting the war effort in
Vietnam," said Wynn, the son
of Willard and Doris Wynn. "1
\\ent ahead and enlisted while
I was in high school."
Wynn \\was selected to go
through the noncommissioned
officers' candidate course.
There \\as a need, he said, for
infantry squad leaders in
Vietnam.
"I volunteered to go," he
said. "It w\as a volunteer
course. You made quick rank.
I finished the course. It was
about four months long. It was
kind of a cram course to prep
\ou for infantry tactics in
Vietnam as a squad leader."
Wynn and one other soldier
-in the 126-member class were
promoted. Wynn went to
Vietnam as a staff sergeant
after having been in the
military 18 months.
Wynn arrived in Vietnam in
1968, but was brought back to
the States in 1969 after being
wounded. After recovering in
the hospital, Wynn took on a
job as an airborne instructor at
Fort Bening. Ga.
In 1970, Wynn joined the
Special Forces, serving with
the I1'" and 20'h Special Forces
groups for 28 years.
Wynn was promoted to


command sergeant major of
the 124"' Ilnfantrv Regiment of'
the Florida National (;uard,
based in Miami, in 2000. In
2003, his unit w as one of tl ll
first ones to be deployed to
Iraql follow ing 9-1 I. lie said.
Not long after leading active
duly in April 2004, Wynn
joined the Army Reserve. He
got into military intelligence as
a sergeant majOr \\ith centrall
Command in Tampa, serving
until mandatory retirement at
age 60 in .uly 2008.
The saber Wynn received
July 30 was just one more
honor he achieved throughout
that 41-year career. Awards
he's especially proud of are the
Legion of Merit, Bronze Star
and Purple Heart, while badges
he's proud of are Master
Parachutist and Military
Freefall Parachutist.
Then there's the Combat
Infantryman Bade, Second
Award. That, Wynn said, is the
one he is the most proud of.
"Not too many people get
the second award," he said. "It
means you have to be in
combat in two conflicts."
Wynn, when looking back
upon the conflicts he served in,
said the Vietnam War was
more of a black-and-white war
when it came to determining
who the enemy vwas, though it
was difficult to discern
Victcong soldiers from
civilians
"Overall, most of the battles
we were in, you knew\ who the
bad guys were most of the
time," Wynn said.
In Iraq, it was hard to figure
out who the enemy was due to
lack of uniforms. Wynn said.
"Our mission over there was
a little harder," Wynn said.
'.'We moved in at the beginning
of the war to set up a police
force, rain the military and
assist in organizing their
government, yet you still had
the.bad guys who would like to
see a lot of American soldiers
dead. They would wave at you
as you 'went by and shoot at
the last vehicle in the convoy.
"It was a hard war-harder
to fight than in Vietnam."
The two wars also differed
in terms of acceptance and
support within the U.S. Wynn
said he has never been
ashamed of wearing his
uniform, but it was tough. to do
so returning from Vietnam.
"I didn't put my uniform on
until I went to drill because
people would give you the
finger," he said. "They looked
down on you like you were a
second-class citizen. That was

Editorial/Opinion


Thursday, Aug. 6, 2009 * Page 4B


In response to
letter from
Robert
Bransford
Dear Editor,
'I am writing this letter to
respond to Mr., Robert
Bransford's comments that
were published in. your paper
on July 30, 2009.
I will begin by saying that it
is striking at the
misinformation that was
propagated by Mr. Bransford
and that his comments reflect
the general assumptions and
societal mindset that have our
country in the wonderful state
that it is today. What is the
real question here? I believe
that what we are talking about
is "truth." What is truth?
That is the question for
yesterday, when Pontius Pilate
was confronted with the
Messiah, Jesus Christ, and it
isthe question today.
First of all, Mr. Bransford
claims that Christians do not
know reality and that we live
in a make believe existence. I
believe that you cannot know
what reality is without
knowing what the truth is.
Some in our society would
claim that truth is subjective,
i.e, whatever you think is
'truth, is truth and whatever I
think is truth is truth. Truth
is exclusive, not inclusive.
Truth excludes falsities. Basic
logic states that true + true =
true and true + false = false,
That brings me to the next
thing that I would like to
address: Mr. Bransford's
statements that "science is
true." To which "science" is
he referring? Chemistry?
Biology? Astronomy?
Geology? All of these are
basically the study of God's
creation. There would be no
chemistry, no biology, no
astronomy, no geology if God
had not created the universe,
the earth, the sky, the stars,
and all the life therein.
So, just to set the matter
straight, I would like to
compare what Christians
believe versus what those who
adhere to the new "science"
religion believe. Christians
know and believe that God is
real, that He created
everything, that His Son Jesus
Christ is both man and God,
that He was born of a virgin,
died on the cross for our sins,
was buried in a tomb and rose
again on the third day. We
believe that Jesus is seated at
the right hand of God and will
come again in Glory one day
really soon to judge and set up
His kingdom forever and
,forever.
Where do we get this truth
from and why are we so sure
that it is true? Jesus said in
John 14:6, "1 am the way the
truth and the life. No man
cometh unto the Father but by
me." That is an exclusive
statement. What He is saying-
is, that unless you come
through Him, you are not
going to get to Heaven. Who
was Jesus saying that He was
and was it true? Jesus said, "1
am," when asked by the
Jewish council if He was the
Messiah, if He was God's son
making Him equal with God.
The high priest ripped his
garment in a show of grief and
anger (a Jewish custom) and
then they proceeded to beat
Him, spit on Him and take
Him to Pontius Pilate to be
crucified.
Jesus said in John 2:19, "I
will destroy this temple and in
three days I will raise it up."
He was speaking of His body
and if fact he spoke of being
crucified and laying down his
life for us. This did happen
and on the third day He rose
again. This has been
historically verified. There
were many witnesses and it
was written of in Josephus,
which is one of the most
trustworthy and accurate
depictions of Roman and
Jewish history written
thousands of years ago.
The entirety of the Bible
was written by Jewish men
who believed in God: that God
is real, He is the Creator, and
that He would send One to
save men from their sins.
Jesus Christ is mentioned all
the way through the Bible
from Genesis to Revelation.
How is it possible that several
different Jewish men, some


prophets, some kings, some
apostles, could write fluid
Truth over 1,500 years?
Because the Bible, that book
that we look to for Truth, was
inspired by the same God
through Ilis HIoly Spirit.


How does the Bible compare
with other religions' "holy"
books? In Josh McDowell's
book, "Evidence that
Demands a Verdict," a book
that Mr. Bransford would do
well to investigate before he
starts to critique the Bible, he
quotes a man named Prof. M.
Montiero-Williams, former
Boden professor of Sanskrit; as
saying:
"After 42 years of studying
Eastern books, he compared
them with the Bible and said:
"Pile them, if you will, on the
left side of your study table;
but place your own Holy Bible
on the right side - all by itself,
all alone-- and with a wide gap
between them. For....there is
a gulf between it and the so-
called sacred books of the East
which severs the one from the
other bitterly, hopelessly, and
forever... a veritable gulf which
cannot be bridged over by an
science of religious thought."
(p. 4)
When Buddha was asked if
he was God, his response was,
"No, I am a man," but Jesus'
response was "I am." When
Buddha died, he stayed. dead,
as did Muhammad and every
other "god" or "prophet' that
ever lived on this earth. But,
Jesus is alive. When they
buried hinr, He came out of the
tomb and walked around for 40
days and then in the sight of
hundreds of people, ascended
into Heaven. Jesus said that
He came to save men from
their sins, to be the atonement
for mens' sins, but no other
religion offers this. Hindus
kill their own children in
worship to the river goddess
Ganges in an effort to make an
atonement for their sins, to no
avail. But Jesus is the Lamb
of God which taketh away the
sins of the world. He is our
sacrifice, our Passover. His
blood has made an atonement.
That is exclusive truth. No
other god offers this.
The Bible, which is the
Word of God and the only
Truth, is exclusive. Other
"religions" can not match the
claims in the Word of God,
and the Truth in it. Other
religions' adherents worship
with doubt, but we know that
we know that we know that
our God is real, His Son is
real and His Word is true,
because I was lost, I was
blind, 1 was wretched, but now
I have been born again, I am a
new creation. My life is not a
disaster anymore. I have joy
unspeakable, I have peace that
passes all understanding, I
have the Holy Spirit living
inside of me, and I am fiee
from the power of sin and the
weight of all the sins I
committed before I met Jesus
Christ.
Christians go to the doctor
and we are blessed because we
know that when we are healed,
it is because God has done it,
not because medicine has done
it. If medicine is so reliable,
then how is it two people with
the same cancer can get the
same treatment and one die
and the other live? That's a
fifty-fifty shot, even with the
best medicine. Can science
save your soul?
How does science explain
that when you lie, or steal, or
lust, you feel bad about it
later? How does science
explain "good" and "evil"?
Does evolution explain
Heaven? Does evolution give
hope? Does science claim that
if you believe on science you
will be saved from eternal
damnation? Does science
change men's hearts? Does
science deliver from
addictions? Does science heal
broken hearts? Does science
restore broken marriages and
broken lives?
No! It doesn't. But Jesus
does. Jesus is the healer, the
deliverer, the Son of God, the


Savior, the restorer, the
comforter, the peacemaker, the
Redeemer, the Alpha and the
Omega, the Beginning and the
Ending, the First and the Last,
the King of kings and the Lord
of Lords. He is the Truth, the
Way and the Life. What does
science offer us? A pill for
headaches and maybe a vaccine
here and there (which were
discovered by "accident"), and
thank God for discoveries.
That's wonderful, but science
can't touch your emotions,
your soul, or your spirit.
Mr. Bransford says that the
Bible speaks nothing of
science, but science is the
study of God's creation. The
book of Job lists the wonders
of God's creations like sea
vents that have only been
recently been discovered (Job
38:16). If Mr. Bransford thinks
that his tail bone doesn't have
a purpose, I challenge him to
have his surgically removed
and then comment' on its
usefulness, or his appendix for"-
that matter which is well
known at this time to help
one's colon recover from viral
and bacterial infections. If God
designed it, then we can trust
that it has a use.
Those who adhere to the
"science" religion believe the
following:
There is no God: people,
animals, plants, insects, DNA,
cells, amoebas, stars, planets,
oxygen, etc. etc. all came out
of an infinitesimal speck that
somehow ignited and exploded
millions and millions of years
ago (so long ago, we don't
even know) and that all living
things "evolved" out of mud
and rocks. They believe that
somehow a cell formed, which
decided that it would die
unless it formed more cells and
then millions of years go by
'and it decides that it would die
if it didn't crawl out of the
primordial sludge and mate
with another cell that had
"somehow" gone through the
same processes. Does anyone
else see how ridiculous that
is?
The adherents, like Mr.
Bransford, of the "science"
religion have faith that men are
animals. The USSR taught
their people for years that they
had no God and that they were
just animals, which is the
reason why it was such a
wonderful and free society,
where people were given every
opportunity to be "re-
educated" and tortured for
thinking for themselves and
spreading the real truth.
Darwinism and the theory of
evolution are the foundational
doctrines for racism, Margaret
Sanger and Planned
Parenthood's "policy of
eugenics," countless
genocides, Hitler's "Final
Solution," Karl Marx's'
communism, Stalin's
murderous rampages and
countless other atrocities in
human history. Men today
would do well to study the.-
facts before delving into
erroneous conclusions based
on propagandistic
philosophies. Mr. Bransford
says that we Christians just
stick our heads in our. Bibles
and deny truth. But I say, that
the Bible is the only truth
there is. The 'theory of
evolution has been proven
untrue, but after 6,000 years,
not one word of the Bible has
been proven as untrue.

Councilmen, is
it just a job for
pay, or do you
really care?
Dear Iditor,
Each month tile Lawley City
Council members are paid
approximately $350.00, but
how much work have they
done? When you have a
problem with trash pickup,
who do you call? We have a
council person over streets and
sanitation, but who do you
depend on? Are you getting
any service out of your elected
officials? Or is it just a

supplemental paycheck?
Would you commit to a
minimum of 10 hours work
per month for the $350 the
council members are
paid? Currently there is no
requirement. Do you feel you
have "earned" the
pay received? When was the
last time you spoke randomly
about issues of your
department to the
citizens? Was it during the
last election?
When the residents on
Carter Road have
problems with the road


who listens to their concerns?
When the residents on Fifth
Street have a funny taste in
their water, who do they call?
Who is the advocate for those
in need of recreation services?
Who are your council
members? Are they mohthly
meeting only
council members? Substitute
your officials (Bradford County
commissioners,. City of Starke
commissioners, state
representatives, etc). Are you
:getting anything from the
individuals you elected?

Nona St., Starke, with Mike Plant
officiating. Interment will be
private at a later date.
The following information is
from Granny's son, Charles
Ormsbee:
Alice Arwood was a fixture in
the local business area for many
years. She died recetllh. but as a
woman business person she never
let the fact that she was a \\olnan
or didn't have formal business
training deter her from becoming
successful in several long-running
enterprises.
She was and \\ill remain in the
minds of many a true entrepreneur
with a creative core of great
business sense. A risk taker and
definitely a woman ahead of her
time.
Ms. Arwood. a single momr of
two ..girls. moved to Starke in
1972 after a surcessAAW career
working f.(rith l -tres {Rte'n-"
Service as a data input supervisor
in the Washington. D.C. area. She
was hired as a lot salesperson at
the former Mustang Mobile
Homes, north of Starke on
Highway 301. She was so
successful in sales that she was
soon named the manager of the
facility. Not only was she a grcat
salesperson but she also took a
hands-on approach and she would
often be seen setting up the double
wide mobile home - carrying
concrete blocks in the mud and
leveling the home with a jack.
In 1976, she entered the floral
business, opening her first full-
service floral business, called
Sunshine Florist, in Keystone
Heights. She was inspired and
seemed to have boundless energy.
she just kept going on - she just
knew that she was going to be
successful and she was. Later. due
to the success she enjoyed, she
-expanded and opened up Sunshine
Gardens, a plant nursery in
Midway, Flowers by Iarry in
Orange Park and Flowers by
Larry in Starke.
The hours were long and she
would often work through the
night preparing arrangements
around Valentine's Day, Mother's
Day and other big flower
occasions for the businesses. She
ran a family oriented business and
her daughter. Nancy Patrick. spent
many years helping the business
become a success. When her
grandchildren were old enough to
help out. they too joined in.
Sometimes the grandchildren were
joined by a friend or two who
remembers those times fondly.
getting to work in the flower shop.
Looking for a bigger market she


sold the I'lorist busincsscs, in 1980
and sIarted Daisics and More (a
M holesale Ilower company which
\\as tile C\clusive velndor for the
\linn D)iie grocery chain for
nllai v 5ears). This \\as uinchartered
territory at that ime and the idea
ol' ha\i a in u ll-service Ilorist shops
insidilc rocer\ stores was a new
idea onl\ tried iin a lew markets
natiolnide. IThe flower shops
\ wcre supplied with fresh
arrangements created by her and
her salT a1 her warehouse. She
also sold house plants, gifts and
more. It w\as a very successful
enterprise and she soon was
supply ing all of the Winn-Dixie
stores fronm Northern Florida to
Southern Georgia. It was a
lucrative business until she
decided on a new challenge in
1992.
In 1992. Arwood opened and
operated the Country Corner
Restaurant. bakery and gift shop
near Middleburg. Alice and her
staff served meals in an old
country store style which featured
bakery items and groceries.
In 1996, she'decided it was time.
to come home to Starke, so she
opened the successful downtown
eatery Grarnny's Best. It was a
favorite with business people who
\would always stop in to see the
special of day and to pick up some
fresh baked goods or a sandwich.
Alice operated Granny's Best until
2002 at the age of 75.
She w\as neveL' one to rest on her
laurels and she proved the old
adage of the best job one can have
in life is the one you create
yourself. She had a passion for
whatever r she undertook and
throughout recessions, good times
and in-between, she remained
optimistic and positive and made
her busiliesses work. As a single
mom and a woman, she sent a
powerful message to others that
you can accomplish your dreams.

Gallagher Funeral Home of

Charter members reflect upon

Starke Kiwanis' 30th year


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
It \\:as a year filled with
unforgettable moments.
The Soviets invaded
Afghanistan.
A meltdown occurred at the
Three Mile Island nuclear
power plant.
Iranian militants stormed the
U.S. embassy in Tehran and
took hostages.
For Starke residents Ste\e
Denmark and Steve Futch.
1979 included one other
unforgettable moment: t'he
birth of the Kiwanis Club of
Starke.
"This club has really been an
important part of this town,"
Denmark said. "We've done a
lot of good through the years.
One of the proudest things I'm
a part of is being in this club,
being a charter member and
seeing it grow."
Denmark, Futch and Bob
Milner are charter members
who are still members to this
day. In honor of the club's 30"'
anniversary, which occurred
July 24, Denmark and Futch
shared some of their memories
during the club's weekly
luncheon. (Milner was not in
attendance.)
A salesman who did
business with Denmark was
the president of the Kiwanis
Club in Gainesville at the time.
He said his club would like to
sponsor a club in Starke. He
asked Denmark if he would be
interested.
Denmark was. He thought
back to a time when he went
fishing with his uncle J.E.
Denmark and two businessmen
from Jacksonville. The
Jacksonville businessmen
talked about the service clubs
they were in, which prompted
Denmark to ask them how they
had time for interests outside
of work. Their answer? The
city of Jacksonville had been
good to them, so they made
time in order to give
something back to the city.
"That kind of planted the
seed," I)enmark said.
Futch said I)enmark and
Richard Roberts contacted him
about joining.
"I didn't know what
Kiwanis was." Futch said. "I
thought it was like Amway or
something."
In all seriousness, Futch,
like those who contacted him,
was interested.
"We wanted to do
something that would give
hack to our community and
ser\ ice our community," Futch
..;i d .
Tlhe club was formed with

developed by FDOT to
recognize the significant
accomplishments of the many
motor squads around the state.
These specialized enforcement
units are capable of diverse
assignments and have proven
to be beneficial in their ability
to easily access traffic crash
scenes and enforce traffic laws
on congested roadways.


These motor . units were
judged in three categories;
policy and guidelines,
enforcement activity, and
effectiveness of efforts.
Troop G's motor squad was
ranked number one by the
panel of judges for the second
year in a row.

Local
troopers
selected as
best in state
Florida Highway Patrol's
Troop "G" was recently
recognized by the Florida
Department of
Transportation's l aw
Enforcement Challenge as the
best in the state of Florida in
the championship class.
Troop G is part of the nine-
county Northeast Florida
Troop, which is headquartered
in Jacksonville. These
counties include Nassau,
Duval, Clay, St. Johns,
Pulnam, Flagler, Bradford,
Baker and Union.
The award was presented at
a ceremony at the Rosen
Shingle Creek Resort in
Orlando on July 31. Troop
G's Motor Squad was also
selected at the ceremony as the
"Best in the State" for the
second year in a row in a
Florida Motor Unit Challenge.
''he Law t Enforcement
Challenge is a program
patterned after the
International Association of
Chiefs of Police (IACP) Chief's
Challenge.
Research shows that an
increase in traffic enforcement
results in a decrease in motor
vehicle crashes, injuries, and
fatalities. In fact, no other
single program or strategy
works as \well as law
enforcement in making travel
on Florida's roads safer.
That's why every year the
FDOT holds the challenge, a
competition to recognize and
reward the best overall traffic
safety programs in Florida.
Each law enforcement
agency is judged by an
independent panel of national
traffic safety experts on five
criteria: policy, training,
public information,
enforcement and effectiveness.
The emphasis of judging is
speed, DI)1, and occupant
restraint programs. Troop G
has been chosen as Florida
Highway Patrol's top troop in
the state five times since the
program began in 2000 and
finished second in the
Championship Class in 2007.
This is the second year of
the Florida Motor Ilnit
Challenge, which was

KIWANIS
Continued from page 6B

O'Neal treasurer.
Meetings, which are nowr
hold at Western Steer Family
Steakhouse, were originally
held in the old Holiday Inn.
To sa\ hle earl\ \ ears were
a struggle would be putting it
mildly. )enmnark said there
would be meetings where there
would d Ibe only eight to 10
people present.
"We had six charter
members who never came to a
meeting," Futch said.
Denmark and Futch cannot
only reminisce together about
those earl -year struggles, but
also about a well-intentioned
fundraiser that practically
proved to be more trouble than
it \as \orth.
A fundraising idea featured
in Kiwanis magazines was
giving out bags of peanuts
with the idea that members
would not sell the peanuts but
accept donations for them.
Clubs were able to order
specially packaged bags of
peanuts for the purpose, but
clubs had to order minimum
of 15 cases. Futch said each
case must have contained
something like 72 bags of
peanuts.
Each case coast $16 to
Futch's recollection, but it was
not easy earning that amount
back. Denmark talked of how
club members stood .out on
U.S. 301 on a football
Saturday, giving away peanuts
while people pitched nickels,
dimes and quarters into
collection cans. The money
collected that day was a long
way from the more than $240
the club had invested in the-
peanuts. Plus, Denmark said
giving away peanuts all day
did not make much of a dent in
the total number of bags the
club had.
"After several months go
by," Denmarks said, "we were
like, 'Well, what are we going
to do with all of these.
peanuts?' Steve Futch
graciously volunteered to store
them down there at his funeral
home."
Denmark said the club tried
to give the peanuts away every
couple of years. Futch said
they were given away at fairs
and ball games, but the club
still had a hard time getting rid
of them.


Steve Denmark, one of
three charter members
still active in the Kiwanis
Club of Starke, shares
some stories of his
experiences in the club.

A woman who was in charge
of a circus that visited Starke
every year at that time said she
could use peanuts, so she
bought some, helping the club
earn its money back plus
approximately $1,000, Futch
said. Still, there were peanuts
remaining.
"I think Steve (Futch) also
put a couple packs in
everybody's caskets in case
you got hungry going to
Heaven," Denmark said,
adding, "I remember they got
pretty stale before we got rid
of them."
The peanut story brought
laughs, as did most of
Denmark's and Futch's
reminisces. Both men
remembered fundraising
pancake breakfasts at which
former member Eddie Douglas
got creative, making pancakes
in the shapes of the diners'
initials.
"It was really cool," Futch
said. "We sold a lot of
pancakes and eventually made
some money. That's how we
funded things for the club back
in those days."
Denmark talked of one
pancake breakfast at which the


club wasn't doing much
business. Mike Cooney, the
president of the club at the
time, said he would go put
signs along U.S. 301 to drum
up business. When the event
was over, Denmark picked up
the signs, noticing that Cooney
had misspelled Kiwanis. What
was even funnier than the
president not knowing how to
spell the club name was the
fact Cooney was wearing a
shirt that had the club name on
it.
"We gave Mike a lot of grief
about that," Denmark said.
Denmark talked of a
chicken-dinneirfundraiser the
club had one summer, which
was suggested by a member
who lived in 'Keystone
Heights, which did not have a
club at the time. This member
had moved from the Midwest,
where he was also a member'
of Kiwanis. He said one of his
club's fundraisers was to fry
chicken and sell dinners. He
was to be in charge of
supplying the chicken fryer.
"He showed up with what
can best be described as
Snuffy Smith's chicken fryer,"
Denmark said. "It was made of
sheet steel. It was welded so it
held oil, but the way he heated
it up was by burning pallets.
I'm telling you, you go
burning enough pallets to get
grease hot enough to fry
chicken in July in Florida, it's
hot."
Denmark said it was so hot
he had to wrap his legs in
pasteboard. He swore his shoes
melted in the process. The
funny thing was, the chicken
\vas cooked outside the
Bradford High School
cafeteria, which had fryers the
club could've used. However,
the club member responsible
for the fundraiser said the club
couldn't use the fryers in the
school kitchen-his set-up was
the way it was done. Denmark
said the club never let the
member in question do another
chicken dinner.
Because of the fun-and
funny-times over the years,
Kiwanis meetings are the
meetings he truly misses when
he can't attend, Denmark said.
Club membership has resulted
in good fellowship and good
friends. That's why his last
remarks to club members were
to be active participants.
"If you haven't been
involved in projects, try to get
involved," Denmark said.


"You will make some slingg
friendships and give something
back to a town that has been
good to all of us."
Futch agreed. IHe said there
were aggravations over the
years, including those
"doggone" peanuts, but joining
the club was one of the best
things he has done.
"Who have you met and
known because of this club?"
Fultch asked. "Who would you
have missed? I would've
missed so many great friends,
acquaintances and
relationships if I hadn't been in
this club."
As far as Futch is concerned,
what could be better than
making friends while helping
out your hometown in the
process?
"The community is the one
that benefits," Futch said.


Empty pockets never
held anyone back.
Only empty heads and
empty hearts can do
that.

Effort under way to

create Bradford-

Baker game trophy


Residents of Bradford and
Baker counties are being asked
for their input to help create a
trophy that will be presented
annually to the winner of the
Bradford High School-Baker
County High School football
game.
Corey Davis, who writes for
the Baker County Standard, is
seeking input for a type of
trophy that would be symbolic
of the rivalry and the
communities in which the
schools are located. Some high
school rivalries in Florida have
such trophies. Columbia and
Suwannee play for the Old
Oaken Bucket, for example,
while Santa Fe and Fort White
are involved in the Battle of
the Paddle.
You may e-mail your ideas
to Davis at
coreydavis_27@yahoo.com.
Ideas may also be sent via e-
mail to Cliff Smelley of the
Bradford County Telegraph at
csmelley@ bctelegraph.com.
Davis is also seeking


historic information about the
rivalry, including past scbres.
Besides a trophy given to the
football game winner, an effort
is under way to present a
trophy in honor of overall
sports achievement.
Head-to-head competition in
every sport will be used to help
determine the winner of the
"Backyard Rivalry." Davis
said the idea is to not only
reward current student-
athletes, but to build school
spirit and pride among alumni
and fars of both schools.
A points-based system will
be utilized, with different point
values assigned to the various
sports. The winning school
would need a minimum of 110
points of a maximum 210 total
points to win the award.
If the two schools do not
compete head-to-head in a
particular sport, points will be
determined by the schools'
performance in district
tournaments.

Spiller goes into season

with impressive numbers


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Teleyrapli Staff lr'iter
Whether or not Clemson
senior running back CJ.
Spiller wins the Heisman
trophy. Ifans of the Tigers have
to be thrilled he decided to
return for his senior season
since he has been a major
contributor to the team since
he arrived on campus as a
freshman.
Spiller, a 2006 Union
County High Schoolgraduate,
rushed for 938 yards his
freshman season, despite
sharing time in the backfield
with James Davis, and has
established quite a few school
'records during his career,
including scoring 12
touchdowns of at least 50
yards. Six of those scores
covered at least 80 yards.
As a freshman, Spiller
gained his 938 yards on 129
carries, scoring 10 touchdowns
on the ground. He caught 19
passes for 210 yards and two
touchdowns as well as
returning 13 kickoffs for 234.
yards.
Spiller rushed for 768 yards
and three touchdowns on 145
carries as a sophomore, while
catching 34 passes for 271
yards and two touchdowns. He
returned 19 kickoffs for 547
yards and t\vo touchdowns.
Last year. Spiller rushed for
'629 yards and seven
touchdowns on 116 carries as a
junior. He caught 34 passes for
436 yards and three
touchdowns, while returning
19 kickoffs for 516 yards and
one touchdown.
Some of Spiller's other
accomplishments include:
*A school record of six
touchdowns of at least 50


TROPHY
Cont. from page 1 B

McCoy, who was lastyear's
runner-up, and Florida
quarterback Tim Tebow, who
placed third last year, but won
the award in 2007.
Patricia Watkins, Spiller's
mother, said. "It means a lot
for his name just to be
mentioned with that group of
guys."
Does Spiller deserve to be
mentioned as a candidate along
with that trio? Watkins, of
course, thinks so. She said
Bradford, McCoy and Tebow
are all good athletes, but thinks
her son possesses all the same
qualities that made those
players finalists last year and
favorites this year.
Spiller does not shy away
from talking about himself
belonging in the same group as
those players. "I like my
chances," he said. However,

achieved in the Peach Bowl
against Auburn as a
sophomore.
*His 83-yard touchdown run
against Auburn in the Peach
Bowl as a sophomore was the
longest play in school history
in a bowl game and the longest
run in Peach Bowl history.

a running back (436) during
his junior year. That mark was
also tops among ACC running
backs.

Spiller's maii focus this year.
Sis not to play well enough to
win the Heisman or be- a
finalist. If that's an end, result,
fine, but his reason for wanting
to play well is to help Clemson
win games.
"We still have some work to
get done," Spiller said,
alluding to the fact the Tigers
have never won the ACC
championship during his time
there.
If Spiller is':a:: H isman
finalist, he said it won't be
solely because of his efforts.
He has always praised the play
of those around him-
especially the offensive
linemen-and will continue to
do so in the future.
"One person can't do it by
himself," Spiller said.
Spiller, a first-team all-ACC
selection last year as a return
specialist, is a preseason All-
ACC pick as return specialist,

and running back. He led the
ACC last year with 147.5 all-
purpose yards per game and is
already 'Clemson's career
leader in that category with
4,908 yards. Spiller needs 921
all-purpose yards to become
the ACC's all-time leader.
Spiller, who was second in
the ACC in kickoff returns and
punt returns, is on pace to
become the first player in
Clemson history to gain at
least 2,000 rushing yards,
1,000 receiving yards and
1,000 yards in kickoff returns.
He has already surpassed those
totals in rushing (2,335) and
kickoffs (1297), needing 83
yards to reach I1,000 in
receiving.
For three years, Spiller has
shared carries with running
back James Davis. With Davis
now in the NFL, Spiller's
number of touches should
increase. Clemson head cdach
Dabo Swinney, during a Jan.
15 press conference at which
Spiller announced his intention
to bypass the NFL draft and
return for his senior year, said
Spiller will be the team's
featured player on offense.
"I am anxious to see what he
can do in that role," Sweeney


said at the press conference.
"H-le is a back who can rush for
1,000 and get another 500
receiving. That is something
that has never been done at
Clemson. He can be a first-
team all-American and a
Heisman candidate."
If touching the ball more
times will help his team win,
then Spiller said he is all for it.
Wantingl, to carry the load at
running back, though, is not
somellhing lie said he was
shooting for. In fact,
sophomore Jamie Harper, a
Jacksomn ile native, and
redshirt freshman Andre Davis
arc talented backs who will
help take the load off his
shoulders. Spiller said.
Watkins said that is one
thing that has always
characterized her son. Whereas
so m1an\ pl;\ers nowadays
\\aiit to bI the star, Spiller is
cow . ni it \t �rk within n the
conl inel , o \\:latever is best
for liis iealm.
"He doesn't play selfish,"
Watkins said.
The Tigers could have found
themselves relying on nothing
but \oun, running backs this
year. Spiller considered


Today pretending. Tomorrow saving lives.













What they learn today will shape their tomorrow.

moving on to the NFL, where
he was projected to be a high
pick. ESPN draft guru Mel
Kiper Jr. had Spiller listed as
his top junior running back
leading up to the draft.
After much prayer and
reflection, though, Spiller
announced he was returning
for his senior year. He said he
owed it to. the players who
enrolled at Clemson the same
time he did as well as to those
younger players coming up,
who will be relying on
guidance from the senior class.
"I wanted to come back and
play with my teammates,"
Spiller said.
At the press conference at
which he announced he was
returning to school, Spiller
talked of things he had to
accomplish at Clemson. That
includes getting his degree.
Spiller, a sociology major, has
certainly put in the work
toward that end. He was
named to the school's dean's
list during the first semester of
the 2008-09 school year with-a
3.5 GPA and selected as an
academic all-ACC pick. Spiller
is the first Clemson running
back to earn all-ACC honors
for performance on the field
and in the classroom in the
same semester. He is the first
Clerson player, regardless of
position, to achieve the feat
since- offensive lineman Kyle
Young did so in 2000.
Spiller said the academic
awards are what he's most
proud of, especially having
earned those awards in a
conference full of
"tremendous" students.
"It just took a lot of
discipline," he said.
Whether or not Spiller
makes a serious run at
Bradford, McCoy and Tebow
for the Heisman remains to be


seen, but Spiller said the
publicity attempts undertaken
by ('lemson can do nothing but
help the school in the future. It
brings about increased media
exposure that should help not
only the football program, but
the entire athletic department,
he said.
"I think it's a great
recruiting tool," Spiller said.
Though he insists on putting
the spotlight on his school and
the players around him, don't
think Spiller is not excited
about the fact he is being
touted as a Heisman candidate.
Watkins said all you have to
do is look at the big smile her
son is flashing on those
Heisman publicity posters to
know how much it means to
him.
Of course, you have to find
one of those posters first.
