 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.

Starke audit recommends changes


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor


In a workshop on the annual audit of
the city's finances last week, Starke city
commissioners listened as a number of
significant issues were detailed.
Auditor Lora Douglas of DDF CPA
Group of Starke said her goal was not
to be critical, but to provide guidance
where she could. Lead auditor was
DDF's Justin Stankiewicz.
In total, the audit for Fiscal Year
2008 contains a number of comments
about the way business 'has been
conducted in the finance and recreation
departments.
For example, the accounts receivable
and accounts payable subsidiary ledgers
at city hall were not in balance with
the general ledger. Apparently, there
was a process in place that was being
followed, but the accounts were not


being reconciled. This was exacerbated
by the presence of a computer software
issue that went unrecognized for six
months. The software was forcing the
accounts to balance, but causing errors
elsewherein the general ledger.
When auditors discovered the issues,
city finance staff was unaware of where
to begin to correct the problem. .
Auditors recommended the city.
reconcile accounts receivable daily and
accounts payable monthly, investigating
and correcting imbalances as they are
found. General journal entries to the
control accounts, seen to be a major
source of the problem, should be
rare, according to the auditors, and
only be used to correct a computer
malfunction.
These excessive journal entries--
approximately 1,000 over the course of
the year-constituted a finding of their
own in the audit report. Instead of rare


occurrences to correct errors, the city
finance director, Herb Green, was using
these entries to record daily transactions
such as bank transfers, direct deposits,
interest earnings,;etc.
Auditors said internal controls would
be greatly enhanced by using the
accounting software to record these
recurring entries instead of multiple
entries to'the general ledger.
They also discovered the finance
office was not recording bad checks
in the general ledger or accounts
receivable. Instead, an employee was
keeping track of this manually outside
of the established accounting system.
According to the audit, checks for
insufficient funds can amount to as
much as $12,000 a month, so employees
need to be trained to charge these bad
checks back to the customers' accounts

Grant spruces up BMS in time for the new year


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

A $5,000 grant from Lowe's
and the sweat of dozens of
volunteers has transformed the
Bradford Middle School campus
just in time for the start of the
new school year.
Shovels turned earth, backs
young and old lugged stones and
pulled mulch-filled carts, and
hoses watered newly planted
landscaping. Around 20 workers
from the 13'" Street Lowe's
in Gainesville joined many
students, parents, teachers and
school administrators Saturday
morning to perform the campus
face-lift.
"Lowe's has been extremely
gracious," said Debbie Parmenter,
the middle school's assistant
principal, discussing not only
the Toolbox for Education Grant
award, but the expertise and
guidance provided that helped
maximize the use of those funds.
The home improvement store
manager Charlie Raulerson even
offered deep discounts on much-
of materials purchased by the


Through its supplier contracts,
Lowe's also managed to obtain
donations of landscaping blocks
and customized concrete stain
used to create a tiled look on the
pad in front of the gym.
Volunteers dug flower beds,
planted trees, laid sod, spread
mulch, installed seating, painted
structures and prepared lunch for
everyone involved.
Superintendent of Schools
Beth Moore said the hard work
of the volunteers who turned
out made clear the pride they
already have in their school.
BMS Principal Earnest Williams
thinks that pride will be spread
as other student s and faculty
show up for the new school year
and see the improvements.
. Building school pride is one
point of the project. The project
is also about getting back
to nature. Even in this rural
community, Parmenter said there
are kids suffering from "nature
deprivation." Computers, video
games, television are too often
keeping kids from recreation
outdoors.
Parmenter wrote the grant,
then working with Lowe's


Sal Cumella, a landscaping
improvement plan was developed
that included new plants and
trees, benches and picnic tables.
This will provide for an outdoor
eating area.
There will also be outdoor
classroom space amid the colorful
and lively new landscaping.
"It pains me to go toa profitable
shopping center parking lot
and see more beauty than our
students experience 180 days,"
Parmenter said.
There are new plants all over,
but the once empty area between
the classroom building and the
gymnasium has been particularly
transformed to a path of palms
and blooms.
There was also an opportunity
to create an ongoing learning
environment forstudents. A small
greenhouse and additional raised
plant beds were added to the
campus with all tools included.
In it ESE students will learn to
cultivate and care for plants on a
regular basis, providing a lesson
as "ell as an employable skill,
not to mention experience with a
pleasurable hobby

. Items purchased with the grant
iroceeds- included a rainwater
retention barrel, a compost
timbler and other tools science
students schoolwide can use in
lIssons about the environment
and sustainability, not to mention
the biological lessons that can be
learned studying plant life.
The outdoor eating area will
serve as a location for adult
iientors to meet with their
iudents, something that has been
missing, Parmeriter said. What
ias been installed is a start, arid
tie school hopes to expand the
area in the future.
The assistant principal was
excited by Saturday's turnout.
"It is just phenomenal,"
Parmenter said. "It is so
incredible seeing the community
coming together."
She also noted the "snowball
effect" the grant has had. When
people learned of the grant
award, they also wanted to give
what they could.


Williams said he was almost
speechless.
"We've seen this building
the last few months. It's like it
was a bus or a train going, and
everybody was jumping on and
knew that it was going somewhere
good," Williams said.
The school's principal called
it the most beautiful thing he's
seen and said he was touched
by the efforts of those involved.
He said campus pride is just
one of the character building
themes that will be undertaken
when kids return to school this
year. They will be spending'the
first 15 minutes of each day in
a homeroom setting aimed at
raising standards.

Thoburn is the new head of BHS

Principal says he wants to raise and celebrate achievement in all programs


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor


D)oug Thoburn's journey\ to
become principal at Bradford
High School is one that has
taken him around the world
and exposed him to a variety of
experiences that he says helped
prepare him for the job.
Thoburn was born and raised
in Cambridge, Ohio. Right out
of Cambridge High, he joined
the U.S. Air Force for what he
thought would be a four-year
experience but turned into a 20-
year career before he knew it.
During that time he got
married and had children. At
the end of four years, he already
had a young family, and he said
re-enlisting was the smart thing
to do. For the first 13 years,
Thoburn was an aircrew member
on the C-5, a cargo aircraft,
which he said he loved.
Initially stationed at Dover Air
Force Base in Delaware,Thoburn
said he got to travel the world.
Eventually, he and his family
even lived for a time overseas.
Stationed in Oklahoma,
Thoburn spent 10 years teaching
at an airlift training center,
where he also became involved
in designing curriculum and
program evaluation.
Following Operation Desert
Storm, which took him away
from his family for an extended
period, Thoburn-made a move to
professional military education
at Okinawa.
"For the bulk of about 18
months, I was gone a lot. So
when that was completed, I
called up the 'personnel center
and said. 'Hey, I would like to do
something different,'" he said.
For three years Thoburn ran
the airman leadership school
at Kadena Air Base in Japan.
He then became first sergeant,
and two of his last four years
in the service were spent
living with his family in South
Korea, which he described as a
wonderful opportunity and great
experience.
He retired from the service in
1999 with all of the experience he
had gained as well as a bachelor's=-
degree from Southern Illinois
University and a master's from
the University of Oklahoma.
The family returned to
Thoburn's home state of Ohio
where he became employed
as a high school guidance
counselor. He also continued his
education, pursuing certification
as a secondary school principal.
-After two years as a counselor,
he received his first opportunity
to lead a middle school on the
outskirts of Columbus.
The next six years were split
between being a middle school
.and high school principal. In the
meantime his adult daughter, a
teacher, had moved to Florida
and become pregnant with the
Thoburns' first grandchild. So
in 2007, Thoburn and his wife
began exploring a move to the
Sunshine State as well.
He was offered an opportunity
at Sebring Middle School in
Highlands County.
"That was just a great
opportunity, because 'it
introduced me to Florida public
education, the Florida system,
and I was really exposed to some
innovative and great educational
techniques, because Sebring
Middle School had been, and still
is, an A school," Thoburn said.
After a year, he became
Highlands' district administrator
overseeing career and technical
education, which involved
managing the program at three
middle schools and four high
schools, and working with the
local community college to
help open a career academy for
students in record time.
Budget cuts eliminated
the position over career and
technical education, however,
and Thoburn was set to go back


y


Doug Thoburn


to Sebring Middle School as
an assistant principal when the
principal position at Bradford
High became available.
It's all for the best, because
after a year at the district level,
Thoburn said he realized his
true love is being with students,
and so his goal was to become a
principal again.
Thoburn said his time in the
military has helped shape his core
values, including service before
self, but it also helped develop
his problem solving abilities.
"In education, sometimes, we
lose sight of the forest because
we're looking at a tree," he said.
Thoburn said he has the ability
to step back, take a deep breath
and evaluate which direction to
take when an issue arises instead
of just jumping into crisis mode.
"Sometimes people will say,
'How can you be so calm?' We
have to be calm," he said. "Our
job is to do what's best for kids
and if we're going to do that, we
can't get excited about things
that jump up and may get in
our way. What we have to do is
figure out how we're going to
navigate around, over or under
-this obstacle-so.we can.do what's.
best for kids."
Spea'kihg iflosing sight of the
forest for the trees. Thoburn said
school grades are important but
only evaluate a single component
of what makes a school
successful.
"My dream is for Bradford
High School to be the place that
every student at Bradford High
wants it to be," he said.
Publiceducation iscompetitive,
he said, with districts competing
among themselves as well as
with private schools for students.
Today, schools have to know how
to market themselves.
"Historically, they haven't had
to do that; they were the only
show in town," he said, adding
that public institutions have to be
willing show people all they have
to offer.
Public schools are assigned
grades, he said, but nowhere on
the report card is a school's band
or chorus program evaluated,
even if it's exceptional. The
same is true of athletics and
other extracurricular and elective
programs, yet all students-not
just those participating in the
programs-benefit from the
profile these successful programs
bring to a school.
"I have a responsibility to do
everything I can do to help those


programs-be as successful as
they can be," he said.
The commitment to academic
and other programs needs to be
equal,Thoburn indicated, and by
that he does mean equal. He wants
to see academic achievement
held in as high esteem as athletic
prowess. The school will be
working to meet benchmarks and
-improve the school grade, and
that includes visibly recognizing
and rewarding achievement.
"We need to work hard to
place academic achievement at
the same level of recognition that
we do athletic achievement," he
said. The school needs to excel
at both.
Rather than come in with a
"menu" of programs he wants to
introduce, Thoburn said he's here
to help nourish the programs the
county has embraced. Positive
Behavior Support is one example
and one with which he has some
experience.
The goal is to support positive
behavior by rewarding it with
needed attention and teaching
alternatives to negative behavior.
When it comes to discipline, he
said it needs to be a learning
*process, and when punishment
is called for, it's important that
"students' know the school hasn't
given up on them.
"That whole experience needs
to be a learning experience,
because if we don't make it a
learning experience, then it will
repeat itself,' he said.
Thoburn said he would
emphasize with faulty that the
adults on campus need to establish
relationships -with students so
whenever there is an issue they
feel uncomfortable about, they
will feel free to speak up. When
those relationships do not exist,
he said, students cannot learn
because they are worried about.
bullying or whatever problem
they're facing.
"I have high expectations
for faculty," Thoburn said. "I
expect, first of all, for them to
be professional, and secondly, I
expect them to be committed to
doing everything that they can
do for the benefit of the students
we have," he said.
One thing Thoburn said
he's heard in the past is the
expectation from teachers that
students act like adults. High
expectations are good, but at the
same time, he said there has to be
an understanding that students
may not have grown to that level
yet.

"We need to expect that they
will make mistakes, and we need
to work with them and help them
learn how to be adults," Thoburn
said. Beyond the curriculum, he
said, schools are also charged
with helping students grow into
responsible citizens.
A lot will be expected of
students as well. Whatever their
involverpent-whether they play
football, are in the band or get
elected to student government-
Thoburn is looking to these
students to be campus, leaders.
According to him, the most
visible of those leaders should
be the seniors, and Thoburn said
the campus should really revolve
around the senior experience.
"Being a senior needs to mean
something," he said,and in return
seniors will be expected to set an
example for the underclassmen
and be a source of pride for the
community.
"I need them to step up to the
plate and demonstrate that kind
of citizenship and that kind of
leadership (so) the community
sees them shine, not just on
graduation day, but from the firstt
day of school to the last day of
school."
Thoburn said his interests
away from work revolve around
his family, which includes his
wife of 27 years, Susan, a staff
account for Florida hospital in
Sebring, and their son Damian.
who will be a senior at Bradford
High this year.
Together they get way when
they can, to the beach or on a
camping trip. He loves to read
(Tom Clancy novels in particular)
and though he's a horrible golfer.
he likes to hit a ball \when there's
no one else around. He also said
he loves college sports, because
the athletes epitomize hard
work, but he doesn't really play
favorites.
"When it comes to college
football, I guess you could-call
me a double loser, because I was
.born and raised a Buckeye, and
I graduated from the University
of Oklahoma," he said, adding
he would probably jump on the
Gator bandwagon now that lie's
in north Fl'orid.- ir'if 1 n1.. . .tli
reason t~n -tp6 ha' .i ehilg.i
to brag about to those back in
Ohio.
He is very enthusiastic about
moving to north Florida, saying
he's fallen in love with this area.
The Thoburns also have two
adult children-Robert, another
Air Force man who is stationed
at the Wright-Patterson base in
Ohio, and Heather, who teaches
high school in Hardy County--
as well as the grandchild they
moved to Florida for in the first
place, Dade.


Chastain seeks
another term
I've been told that I'm a tell-it-
like-it-is commissioner so here's
what's on my mind: I, Tommy
Chastain, want to serve as Starke
city commissioner District 4
another term.
The last four years have been
exciting for me as your District
4 commissioner as Starke faced
new challenges. My experience
as your city commissioner comes
from rolling up my sleeves and
getting involved with budget,
policies, and involvement in
activities in dur community.
1 haveattended all meetingsand
workshops, carefully studying
the agenda, seeking out answers
to questions, and listening to your
position on items to come before
the commission. I have been
straightforward with questions on
subjects of discussion and always
considered what is best for all of
Starke both now and in the years
ahead in my decisions.
Working together as a
commission, many items have
been completed during my four
years in office.The city workforce
has been reduced without
services being interrupted.
We have moved forward with
electrical upgrade to cut our line
loss in our electrical system. We
have established an electrical
stabilization fuel adjustment
account to offset spikes in fuel
adjustment.
Your insurance fire rating is-at-


an all time low with the move to
the, new fire station, with costs
funded by the sale of city-owned
property. Much needed paving of
city streets has taken place. The
city wastewater treatment plant
became a Bio-Chem facility
converting our sludge and
making it a top soil fertilizer.
This new system also helps the
city reach the new recycling state
mandate.
We continue, to support
and work with numerous
organizations to boost our city's
economy through events such
as Bike Fest, downtown Cruise-
Ins and Santa Fe Community
College activities. The list could
go on as your commission is very
active and will continue to focus
on new and innovative ideas to
make Starke a better place to live
now and in the future.
I would like to work for you
the next four years to find ways
to save through collaboration
with county government to
reduce duplication of services.
Currently conversations have
stepped up with partners in our
electrical power users group that
would result in a reduction to your
electrical bill. This won't happen
overnight, but I am committed to
focusing on viable options.
Starke's private retirement
system must be revamped by
considering options for savings
to the city such as lowering new
employee's retirement benefits
for the first 10 years of work.
Current economic conditions
will force these cost effective
revisions and more tightening of
our City belt.
With the clearing of the former
power plant site came a vision
to create a small amphitheater
for Starke and Bradford County
residents built with new funding
sources and grant opportunities.
I pledge to you that as your
city commissioner for District
4, I will work to find answers
to your questions in a timely
manner as I have in the past four
years and be accessible to discuss
your concerns. I look forward to
meeting you and discussing your
concerns in my door-to-door
campaign.
I believe with your vote on
Tuesday, Sept. 1, we can make a
difference for the city of Starke.
Thank you.

Spotlight on business: Warden Steven Singer of FSP


New FSP warden
ready for the
challenge
BY TERESA STONE
IRWIN
Tines Staff WIriter

Warden Steven Singer
left the door wide open to
he ribbed about his college
days by first attending the
IUniversity of Florida for
his bachelor's degree in
psychology then transferring
to Florida State University for
a master's degree in mental
health counseling.
One can't help but ask him
how he can be a Gator and a
Seminole at the same time.
"I'm a big fan of abnormal
psychology," he said.
In his new office at Florida
State Prison, sits a life-
sized wooden Florida Gator
that sometimes dons a FSU
cap, depending upon who
is visiting the warden at the


particular time.
Not wanting to be like
everyone else, between
1974 and 1975 when his
college peers at FSU chose
internships with community
health agencies or in school
psychology, Singer said he
went to the federal prison in
Tallahassee and asked for an
internship. They welcomed
him with open arms, saying,
"Sure, come on. We're doing
this stuff about therapeutic
communities, and you guys
from FSU could possibly
help us start some drug
rehabilitation programs."
That's where it all began for
Singer who said he assisted the
federal prison with developing
a group counseling program
for offenders.
After college, he found
himself lined up at the
employment office among
others who even had PhDs,
ready to take any job they
could get.
"The job market was just
horrible back then," said


Name: Steven F. Singer
Age: 57
Industry: Corrections
Job Title: Warden, Florida
Prison
Number of employees: 800
U.S. annual salary for w
$55,000-$120,000+, depending
years of experience and the si
location of the institution, inc
retirement and health benefits.
For mental health and sub
abuse counselor: $35,000-$47,0
Psychiatric nurse: $48,000-$(
all depending upon education, y
experience and patient load.

Singer. "I was newly married
and decided I had to take
something and ended up in an
orientation class to be a debt
collector."
Singer knew immediately
the job wasn't for him when
they handed him a revolver
and put him in the worst
neighborhoods in the Miami
area.
Back at the employment
office looking at state jobs,
he spotted a listing for a
psychologist at the Reception


and Medical Center
in Lake Butler and
Singer landed the
State job.
Back then,
arden: Singer explained,
Supon psychology was
ze and not as developed as
eluding it is now, but what
the job entailed
Stance was working in
)00. the classification
55,000, d e p a r t m e. n t
ears of perfo rmi ng
psychological
screenings for
an average of
15 inmates a day where he
interpreted MMPI findings
and asked various questions to
discern their best placement.
After about a year, he
requested a move to the
prison's in-patient psychiatric
unit, where he remained from
1976-1985.
"It was very, very interesting
to work with inmates who
were legitimately psychotic
or suicidal, as well as the
ones presenting themselves as


such," said Singer.

FSP:
Continued from p. 6A

. He transferred to Marion
Correctional Institution as a
ps chological specialist from
1985-1989, but where he
really\ wanted to be was in
administration.
"One day, the warden
told me they were interested
in beginning therapeutic
communities to engage in
the principles of recovery.
He asked me if I would
be interested in being a
department head o\er 13 staff
members and 190 inmates."
said Singer. "I told him I
wasn't interested in the areas
of drug abuse or alcoholism,
but he told me I w\as doing it
anyway."
He was sent to New York
and New Jerse\ to learn about
some very highly credentialed
treatment programs so he
could gather information
on developing therapeutic
communities in the prison.
"When we all got there, \we
satin on some group processes,
but we were taught almost
nothing, as they said their
techniques were proprietary
and their secrets couldn't be
released," said Singer.
But for a small fee of $5,000
each, they were willing to
come to Florida and teach the
system.
Singer instead opted to hit
the library at the University
of Florida and do hours and
hours of research on starting
therapeutic communities.
"I was in way over my
head," said Singer. "We were
interviewing a whole bunch
of inmates to see if they were
suitable applicants while
hiring staff at same time."
The rules weren't
completely clear or set, and
although Singer had the book-
smarts, he admittedly was not
street smart.
"I met some inmates that
were either program graduates
or treatment dropouts from
some of those programs up
north, and I hate to say this,
but they taught me some of
the concepts and techniques."
Singer also thought it a good
idea to hire some recovering
staff members- wNho were
well-versed in the techniques
because, after all, they had
lived them.
"I was completely and
totally naive," Singer said.
!"We had the largest in-prison
program in the southeast at the
time, but I knew one thing for
sure. If the floors were very,
very clean... I mean highly
waxed... if the inmates all had
nice uniforms with belts on
and shirts tucked in and if I
.could train them all to say 'yes
ma'am' and,'no sir,' it would
all be wonderful."
People who later toured the
program would comment on
how clean the area ivas and
how helpful and respectful
the inmates were. They would
often say things like,"We have
no idea what you're doing
'here, Mr. Singer, (because
truthfully, they didn't know
what a treatment program was
supposed to be like, either),
but. it sure is working, so keep
it up."
Singer named the program
"Doin' Time, Gettin' Straight"


because inmates were always
telling him all they wanted
to do was their time, and get
their lives straight.
"We learned together and
rocked along until 1989,"
Singer said, "hiring more
and more sophisticated staff
over time, as we gained the
ability to screen out some
of the poorer candidates
and get appropriate ones for
treatment."
In 2007, Singer was
nominated into the Who's
Who of Prevention by the
Florida Office of Drug
Control. He was credited
as being instrumental in
the implementation of an
innovative pilot substance
abuse re-entry program for
inmates with a significant
and violent criminal history.
He was also recognized for
promoting prevention foi" staff
as well as inmates.
"We got lots of national
attention," Singer said. "We
had numerous legislative
tours and had several articles
written about the program."
Through the encouragement
of one of his staff members,
Kevin E. Early, he took part
in co-authoring a book titled,
"Drug Treatment Behind
Bars: Prison-Based Strategies
for Change."
A still widely used textbook
today, Singer was asked to
write a chapter on what one
must do to start a successful
program in prison. Singer
titled his chapter "Essential
Elements of the Effective
Therapeutic Community in
the Correctional Institution: A
Director's Perspective."
While still at Marion CI,
then Florida Department of
Corrections Region 3 Director
Joseph Petrovsky . toured
Singer's program and offered
him a position as his assistant,
a position he held for two
years.
An assistant warden
position then came available
at Gainesville Correctional
Institution where the entire
mission of the prison at the
time was 'drug treatment.
Singer jumped at the chance.
Because DOC tends to not
want administrators to stay in
the same place too long, he
was transferred to assistant
warden at Baker Correctional
Institution '??i' T9, This was-
a larger prison, so Singer felt
it was a good opportunity
for hinr to learn. In 2003, he
returned to Gainesville CI as
warden for one year before
diving in with both feet and
asking to be considered for a
larger prison.
In 2004, he was sent to


Columbia Correctional
Institution where he was
put in charge of an inmate
population three times larger
than before.
"Columbia was corrections
at its best," said Singer.
"With 2,500 inmates in four
units, we had a little bit of
everything, including some
really rough inmates and gang
activity. Approximately one-
third of'the inmates had life
sentences, so it was quite a
challenge."
On June 19 of this year,
Singer became the new warden
at Florida State Prison.
Upon first being offered
the job, Singer said he was
hesitant.
"It was a huge responsibility
to take on, considering the
rough inmates with abnormal
mental health issues and the
history of the prison itself,"
he said.
Fortunately, the prison also
has a very well-experienced
staff that Singer said he is
very supportive of, taking
time to visit with them in their
positions as often as possible.
FSP has the capacity for
2,400 inmates in its main and
west units. There are 800 staff
members plus variotis other
positions. All the inmates
are locked up in individual
cells. Singer-said 824 inmates
have significant psychiatric
needs, 353 have serious
medical conditions requiring
close monitoring and 66 are
currently sitting on death
row.
Singer said, "Here, we are
dealing with the worst of the
worst offenders in Florida.
This is the end of the road, the
last stop."
Florida State Prison is
where all death executions
in Florida take place. Since
the reinstatement of the
death penalty in 1979, DOC
statistics show that death row
inmates average just over 12
years before execution. The
average age of those executed
is 45 years old, for crimes
they committed at the average
age of 30. The next execution
is scheduled for John Richard
Marek on Aug. 19.

It was, however, 26 years
ago that Marek and his
accomplice RaymondWigley
stopped to assist two.women
who were stranded on the
Florida Turnpike in Broward
County when their car broke
down. Unable to repair the
car, Marek persuaded one
of the women, Adella Marie
Simmons, 47, to ride with
them to a service station for
help.


Worship in the louse Of the �rd.
Soamehere th week!


The churches and businesses listed below
urge you to attend the church of your choice!


Last month, as representatives of the First Baptist Church of Jacksonville Prison
Ministry, Tim Tebow and several other Florida Gators football players gave
motivational speeches to Inmates and signed autographs for staff at Florida State
Prison. Here, Tebow posed for a photo with Cindy Brown.


Instead, the men drove
Simmons to a desolate beach
more than 60 miles from her
car.
At the trial, Wigley testified
that they forced Simmons into
the observation room of a
lifeguard stand. There, they
burned areas of her body, and
she was forced to perform
oral sex and was sexually
assaulted numerous times
before being strangled to
death with a bandana.
An officer who observed a
truck parked near the lifeguard
tower stopped to speak to
Marek and Wigley about
being on the beach at 3:30
a.m. Unaware of what had
just taken place, he released
them.
Simmons' body was
discovered by a lifeguard a
few hours later. That evening,
the pair was arrested after it
was found they were driving
a stolen truck. A search of
the truck revealed a gun and
Simmons' stolen jewelry.
Fingerprints at the.lifeguard
tower matched thoie of
Marek and Wigley. Only
Marek's fingerprints were
located inside the observation
deck where Simmons' body
was found, however, both
men were charged with her


murder.
Wigley received a life
sentence and died while
incarcerated in 2000. Marek
is spending his final week on
earth in a death row cell at
Florida State Prison.

"What ,we are faced with
at FSP," Singer said, "is
addressing the needs of
some of the most violent,
problematic offenders in
Florida, and we have to do
this in a humane manner. This
includes successfully carrying
out law-mandated executions
in a flawless and humane
fashion."
Because the inmates are so
problematic, a job at FSP is
rather stressful.
"One of our biggest
challenges is continuing to
do what is needed to keep our
staff safe."
Keeping them safe includes
their mental health as well.
Singer said they are constantly
in a coaching and mentoring
mode with staff, teachingthem
techiiiques that w-il btasiscalf'
assist them in keeping their
mental balance.
Another challenge Singer
said he faces is seeing to it
that FSP presents a positive
image in the eyes of public,


centered around public safety
needs.
"We want to be part of
the solution, not part of the
problem," Singer said.
Other areas the warden
plans to tackle are containing
costs associated with repairs
and maintenance on the aging
facility.
"Construction began
in 1961 and the main unit
opened in 1972, so you can
imagine the repair needs on
an increasingly tight budget,"
he said.
He is also working on
providing incentives for
acceptable behavior in inmates
as well as expanding re-entry
initiatives such as adult basic
education and mental health
services for offenders who
will some day be released
back into society.
Singer is married to Jeanne
Singer, the chief assistant state
attorney for the eighth judicial
circuit, working directly with
Bill Cervone. They have a
24-year-old daughter, Julie,
in pediatrics at St. Joseph's
Hospital in Tampa who is
currently working on her
master's degree. They also
have a son, Jeremy, 28, who
is an executive for Exxon
Mobile in Houston, Texas.

THANK YOU!!!
I, Stephanie Crosby, would like to thank all of my sponsors from Union County that supported my'
participation in the 2009 Miss Gainesville Scholarship Pageant. This pageant is affiliated with the
Miss Florida/ Miss America Organization. It is a non-profit corporation that is the largest
scholarship provider for young women in the world. On March 7, 2009, I was able to express my
opinions and talent to a panel of five judges and hundreds of emphatic fans. I am forever grateful
for the continual encouragement and guidance that I receive from the people of this great county. It.
is because of you that I was able to take part in such a memorable and rewarding event. By:
inspiring young people to follow their dreams and offering a helping hand, one is giving back to
their community. This is just what this group of individuals, businesses, and families has done for
me. Through monetary support, prayers, and many confidence building pep talks, I was able to
actively pursue an educational dream while displaying multiple characteristics and skills that I have
gained -over the past few years. I was given the "Spirit Award" by Executive Directors Merissa.
Amkraut and Jason Curchy for my cooperation, ability to get along with the other competitors, and:
having things done before or on time. I may not hold the title of "Miss Gainesville" or "Miss
Alachua County", but what I did gain from this pageant is far more valuable than a crown.
Opportunities such as the Miss Gainesville Scholarship Pageant have enabled me to further develop
my leadership and communication skills, ability to cooperate with a diverse group of individuals,
and have sharpened those tools, such as responsibility, tlat are essential in becoming successful.
Thank you, Union County for making the past 18 years of my life something to smile on. You are
the ones that made this once in a lifetime experience possible!

Starke to take control of recreation
. ta r *, ,,,


SLrtM.L Lr JYL wS


BY MARK .1. CRAWFORD
7',l/graplt Editor

Ily the time the Starke City
Commission met in a workshop
on Aug. 10 to discuss the future
of recreation in light of the
city's recent audit, it seems the
decision had all but been made to
bring the recreation department's
financial activity under city hall's
umbrella.
Since the previous audit
workshop. the city received
an opinion from the Florida
Department of Community
Affairs classifying the recreation
board as a dependent special
district because it was created by
ordinance for the special purpose
of conducting recreational
.programming in the city.
Accordingly, the city. was
instructed to formally register
the board as such or. alternatively,
amend its ordinance to clarify that
the recreation board exists only
to advise the city commission
about recreational matters.
Mayor Wilbur Waters indicated
the city wanted to find a way to
solve the problem and make
everyone happy. The solution
was to set up the recreation
board as an advisory body and
do as the auditors from DDF
CPA Group had recommended
by accepting authority over the
funds generated by recreation
programs.
Otherwise, the city would need
to turn over those and the funds it
allocates annually for recreation
to the recreation board and allow
it exclusive authority over its own
payroll, operations, facilities,
etc.
Everyone seemed to agree that
was not a workable option. It
would turn the recreation board
into its own governmental entity
akin to the board that governs the
tri-county landfill, fcr example.
SWhat currently exists,
according to City Attorney Terry
Brown, is a hybrid. The city has a

of local couple Frank and Adele
Mitchell, will attend a book

budget for recreation employees,
facilities and certain operational
costs. Through program fees and
fundraisers, the recreation board
also has its own pot of money that
pays for programs, operations
and certain personnel costs.
The city ordinance concerning
recreation will be amended to
untangle these responsibilities.
A special restricted fund will
be established for all revenue
from recreation programs and
fundraising, and within that fund
money for each program will
be accounted for separately. No
money will be expended from
this fund except for approved
recreational purposes.
Just as will be the case with
recreational programming, the
recreation board will make a
recommendation to the city
commission on the expense of
these funds, but final approval
will rest with the commission.
Brown said there should really
be no substantive changes in the
way the recreation board does
business.
The head of the recreation
board, Pat Welch, was not
present at the workshop, but he
was said to be in support of the
solution. Recreation Director
Alica McMillian was concerned
about the availability of financial
information to the board and she
also wanted to make sure that
only money from the recreation
fund would on!y be spent on
recreation.
She was given that assurance.
Recreation Board Member
Chrissy Allen had some questions
directed at the auditors. She
wanted to know why these issues
were just being raised now, and
Commissioner Carolyn Spooner
said she had the same question.
Regarding increased costs,
Allen said she felt recreation
had been singled'out among the
city's departments and was being
picked on, but she said she had
no problems with the way things

were being reorganized.
"Money is money, and as long
as it's being spent on kids, I'm
OK with it," she said.
Waters said no one was picking
on the recreation department,
and DDF's Eddie Douglas
clarified that the comment about
recreation's increased costs
was highlighted because of an
average 10 percent increase in
costs every year for the last 30
years. He added at that rate,
the budget would double every
7.2 years, and the city couldn't
sustain that level of growth.
While some said the issues
over recreation board's
relationship in city government
and the management if its moneys
separate from the city had not
been raised before, Waters said
it had and the commission had
turned its head.
Allen said while it may have
been discussed for years, she
didn't recall seeing it in writing.
Just last year in the audit
for 2007, however, there was
a recommendation that the
purchasing and accounting
functions in the recreation
department be consolidated with
finance. In prior years, recreation
has been written up for other
financial issues that. raised
concerns about who should be in
charge of those funds.
Although the separateness of
the recreation board was noted,
no recent audits has ever raised
the issue of whether the recreation
board was a special district or
an advisory board. DDF's Lora
Douglas said everyone, including
the auditors, felt the board was
advisory in. nature, until she
began looking closer to the
definition of special districts.
The issue was, if recreation is
an advisory board, should it be
handling money? As an advisory
board, the answer apparently is
no.

DBPR keeps business honest with regulation


BY JAMES WILLIAMS
Monitor Editor
A Melrose man sponsored
several advertisements in the
newspaper to warn the public
about a building contractor
who had essentially been
banned from ever working in
Putnam County again.
An anonymous caller said
a relative was claiming to do
construction work for elderly
people, but was in fact ripping
them off. We need DBPR.
The Department of Business
and Professional Regulation is
a state agency that certifies or
licenses a host of businesses,
presumably to keep them
honest.
The department licenses
nearly one million Florida
businesses and professionals
ranging from real estate
agents, veterinarians, and
accountants to contractors and
cosmetologists.
From May 31 to Aug. 31,
the department has been
registering contractors in
air conditioning, building,
electrical, plumbing, general
construction, tank lining,


roofing, mechanical, pool/
spa, precision tank testing,
residential construction, sheet
metal, specialty contracting,
underground utility and
excavation contracting,
undergroundutility, generaland
residential building, roofing,
specialty structures and glass
and glazing contractor.
Licensees mustalsocomplete
one hour of continuing
education on specialty subjects
like wind mitigation.
Before applying for renewal,
board-approved additional
continuing education is
required for certified,
registered contractors. which
must include one hour in
workplace safety, workers'
compensation, laws and
rules and business practices.
Licensed contractors not in
compliance with contin.ding
education requirements could
face nonrenewal ordisciplinary,
action.
Last July, the DBPR sent
a message that unlicensed
activity would not be tolerated.
When investigators hit the
streets, they performed 64


percent more operations than
the previous year.
DBPR partnered with local
law enforcement agencies,
building departments, state
attorney's offices,and workers'
compensation representatives
to visit 210 construction
sites and check a total of 478
working individuals for state-
required licensure. DBPR and
partners issued 38 notices of
noncompliance, 64 citations,
and 15 cease and desists.
DBPR investigators
in Jacksonville arrested
unlicensed individuals who
left a victim out of money and
without a roof over her head.
The department also
launched a campaign to
make consumers aware that
scam artists and unlicensed
contractors were out there.
"In the rush to stay cool this
summer, remember to check
your pool and AC contractors
licenses and references before
signing a contract and work
begins," said DBPR Secretary
Charles W. Drago.
The division -combats
unlicensed activity through


sweeps, which consist of
checking licenses to ensure
compliance with state laws.
Stings consist of undercover
operations where known
or suspected unlicensed
individuals are targeted.
The Department of Business
and Professional Regulation's
Division of Hotels and
Restaurants also licenses
and inspects restaurants and
cafd's, coffee shops, hotels
and motels, to ensure that the
businesses are safe and clean.
DBPR tries to educate
operators about the impact of
proper handwashing,. glove
usage, and employee health
on foodborne illnessness.
The DBPR estimated that
proper handwashing alone
could eliminate nearly half of
all cases of foodborne illness
in Florida restaurants.
Penalties for unlicensed
contracting activity can
include a fine of up to $5,000
per incident. Persons engaging
in unlicensed activity can be
charged with a first degree
misdemeanor for a first
offense. In addition,any person

McRae resident Noel

Thomas said the panel meets

One purpose of the panel is
to review consumer complaints

sides of the case. There is
a secretary or recorder who
documents the hearings.
Thomas said there was
no one area in the state of
Florida where complaints most
regularly showed up.
"There have been a large
number of complaints from
Miami and Brevard County,"
Thomas said. "But you would
expect that, since that area
also represents the largest
population." He said they tend
to see more cases reported from
larger urban areas than rural
parts of the state.
Typical cases involve
contractors who didn't pull
permits before beginning the
work; contractors who simply
abandoned an unfinished job
and jobs that didn't pass code
inspections. In many such
cases, it's the consumer who
gets contacted first, and the
consumer who ends up paying
for shoddy work.

Thomas said he

they sign a contract,
to see if there are
any complaints
against anyone in the
building industry.
It's always best to
go with a licensed,

Thomas said, even

Take steps to


protect yourself


Hiring an unlicensed
individual can threaten the
financial and personal safety
of consumers, as well as the
livelihood of state-licensed
professionals.
Unlicensed individuals may
not carry workers'compensation
or liability insurance, and
consumers may end up paying
for injuries on the job.
Unlicensed individuals often
underbid licensed professionals,
which results in law-abiding
professionals losing work to
those who do not meet state
requirements. The Department
of Business and Professional
Regulation recommends the
following:
* Always ask to see the
contractor's license.

and verify that the license is
current and in good standing.To
check a license, call (850) 487-

.Get a releaseof lien covering
all workers and materials. This
removes your property from
the threat of lien.
.Ask any potential contractor
for references and check each
one.
* Beware of scams when
contractors ask for all the
money up front or will only
accept cash.
* Beware of contractors who
arrive in unmarked vehicles,
possibly from out-of-state.
* Ask for references and
check each one.

McRae announces


needed school supplies


.The fact that Phil and
Christine Arnold are redoing
their front porch has not gone
unnoticed by many Lake
Region residents.
It's not that the town is
nosey. The Arnolds have served
on the Heritage Committee in
Keystone Heights, and have
been instrumental in historic
reservations. Christine
decided to take action on her
own home.
Her version of her old front
porch is that in 1924, Meadville
Pennsylvanian Jennie Strong
built the home. Of that much,
Christine is certain. She has
very good reason to believe
that the home is at least a
catalog home-one ordered
from out of a catalog-but has
so far been unable to find a
catalog drawing that matches
her house.
She is still in process of
proving which company, like
Sears or Aladdin, manufactured
the home, but many catalogs
have been lost.
She is certain it's a catalog
home because she's found
matching serial-type numbers
written on door frame timbers,
window frames and stair risers.
But her front porch seemed
odd. It didn't match the rest of
the house.- -.. -. ,.,,,
"The main part of the house
is a colonial revival style,"
she said, :"It's the only one
in Keystone." But the original

porch was a bungalow style,
popular in 1924, but not
necessarily built from the
catalog kit.
Christine knows the house
was built as a winter vacation
home, and guesses that Mrs.
Strong wanted something a
little warmer, more useful for
the winter months when she
was in residence.
The original porch was
warmer, one -that wouldn't
catch a breeze, which was fine
for Mrs. Strong, but not for
Christine who lives in it all
year round. The original porch
was screened; the porch roof
came way down to block the
wind, typical of bungalow-style
porches.
Four years ago, Christine
found Corinthian porch
columns in a demolition
warehouse, snapped them up
and brought them home. Later,
she found just the right beveled
glass door.
Since then, the. Arnolds
have traveled all over Palatka,
Gainesville, Green Cove
Springs and elsewhere taking
pictures of porches and houses
from the same era.

Bible Answer: Phil. 2:8-11 And being found in appearance as a.man,
He humbled Himself and became obedient to the point of death, even the
death of the cross. Thereo)re God also has highly exalted Him and given
Him the name which is above every name, that at the name of Jesus
every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of
those under the earth, and that every tongue should confess that Jesus
Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.


She asked Yanskey, to design
somethingin aSoutherncolonial
revival style, something with
Corinthian columns.
The estimates arrived in
January; demolition of the old
porch began in March.
Christine did much of the
demolition herself, because she
wanted to search for catalog
numbers on the materials used
to build the porch in 1924,
She was pleased to find no
numbers, reassuring her that the
main house was a catalog kit,
but the porch was the owner's
locally designed add on.
Construction of the new,
historically matching porch
began in mid-July.
DNR Construction in
Gainesville took the job. The
new porch runs along two sides
of the house and across the
front and goes to the bump
outs. It's made to look like a
complete wrap around.
The historically authentic
porch is scheduled for
completion next week. A
courtyard and fountain in front
of the house will also be added
later.
Christine said she has selected
no rocking chairs, but plans
stationary furniture instead.
There will be no screens, she
added.
She plans to use the new
porch as a social room for
entertaining.


Two weeks ago, McRae
Elementary School's Assistant
Principal Vickie Chappell
released the school's back-
to-school supply list, shown
below.
Notebook paper and pencils
will be needed throughout

AUDIT
Continued from Page 1A

so they are accounted for in the
system in a way that all employees
can follow.
The audit also found the city
was out of compliance with
Florida statutes because impact
fee revenue was not being
accounted for in a separate
accounting fund. City -Clerk
Linda Johns opened five separate
banking accounts to deposit
impact fees for roads, fire, police,
etq., but the law requires there be
a special revenue fund for impact
fees like the-city has for streets.
Like transportation funds, impact
fee funds can only be spent on
qualifying projects.
* Such a fund is to be created
in accordance with the auditors'
recommendation.
Accounting control issues
were also noted in the recreation
department. While revenue from
certain programs like adult
softball and the after-school
program were being tracked
separately, revenue from other
programs was being mingled.
Recreation Director Alica
McMillian was keeping track of
these funds manually, but began
using software during the current
fiscal year.
According to the auditors, the
software can be used to track
revenue and expenditures for
each program separately. This
will also allow a profit and loss
statement to be compiled for
each program, which will help
the city set fees at adequate levels
for each program.
Recreation was also apparently
paying .umpires out of receipts
from concessions and IRS 1099
forms were not being issued for
umpires to report their income
on their personal tax returns.
Auditors made it clear that
concession receipts should



FLIGHT
Continued from Page 1A

The pursuit lasted for a couple
of miles before officers ended it
by tapping the rear side of the
vehicle with the front side of a
patrol car, a move referred to as
the PIT maneuver. "
The tap caused the vehicle to
rotate and spin to a stop in the 400
block of West Madison Street.
The front passenger dropped the
handgun during the spin.
The driver, Rodrick Marvin
Thompson, 18, of Gainesville,
was arrested and charged with
fleeing and attempting to elude
a police officer. Bond was set at
$10,000 and he was released on
bond Aug. 9.
The front seait passenger,
Rodney Maurice Sheffield, 21,
of Gainesville was arrested and
charged with aggravated assault
on a law enforcement officer and
discharging a firearm in public.
Total bond was set at $50,000
and he was released on bond
-Aug. 9.
A few hours later, another call
was received regarding gunshots
being fired. Deputies responded
to the Pleasant Grove area where
witnesses said they saw Maurice
E. Hewitt, 30, of Starke, fire the
shots.
Hewitt was located by deputies
nearby. They found ammunition
in his possession, but did not
find a weapon. Hewit allegedly
admitted to the deputies that he
had also been present at the fight
in the fairgrounds parking lot
earlier in the evening.
Hewitt was charged with
possession of ammunition by a
convicted felon. Bond was set at
$15,000 and he was released on
bond Aug. 9.

be deposited intact and no
expenditures should be paid from
cash receipts. Umpires need to
be treated as vendors and they
should be paid by check.
In a related finding,
auditors found no controls
over concessions, providing
opportunities for theft of both
cash and inventory.
DDF recommended an
inventory system be put in
.place and that all cash receipts
be deposited in the city's night
depository.
Inadequate record keeping
was also noted in regard to funds
raised by the All-Starteams. Here,
too, funds raised to be spent for
a specific purpose-supporting
these individual teams-need to
be accounted for separately.
Recreation has also failed to
keep a record of its fixed assets,
but the most difficult question
facing the commission regarding
recreation has to do with the
identity of the recreation board.
Auditors asked if the recreation
was just another department of
the city with an advisory board to
the city commission as most have
always assumed or whether it was
actually a special district with its
own governing board appointed
by the city commission.
The fact that the recreation
board raises and spends its
own money through and for
recreational programming places
it in the special district category.
At the same time, the city


commission has its own budget
for recreation out of which
recreation employees and certain
operational costs are paid for.
According to the Florida
Department of Community
Affairs, the activities of the
recreation board qualify it as a
special district.
The problem is the recreation
department has never been
registered with DCA as a special
district, and that places it out of
compliance with Florida law.
Furthermore, there may be
additional requirements of
special districts that are not being
observed.
The city needs to acknowledge
the special. status of the
recreation department and have
it properly registered, or clarify
by ordinance that the recreation
board is merely an advisory board
and place all recreation funding
in accounts controlled by the city
commission and administered by
the city clerk.
This means fiscal
responsibility would be removed
from the recreation board, but
the alternative is that the city
allocate adequate funds to the
recreation department each year
and allow it to fully function as
a special district, governing its
own budget, payroll, benefits,
facilities, eta
Auditors also listed as a finding
the city's funding of recreation
for non-city residents, something
that has also been on the mind


of city commissioners for some
time. The 'audit notes that in
2008, the city's net contribution
to recreation after program
proceeds were subtracted was
more than half a million dollars.
In addition, more than 70'
percent of program participants
live outside the city limits, but
county government makes no
contribution to support the
recreation department.
Auditors asked the commission
to look at the feasibility of
providing programming for non-
city residents without additional
funding. One suggestion is
a jointly governed recreation
board with cooperating local
governments that could, with
publicly approval, levy up to one
mill of property taxes to support
recreation.
Auditors found that without
some additional source of
revenue, such as higher fees
for non-city residents, the cost
of recreation would become
unsupportable.
Over the past 30 years, Douglas
said, recreation costs have risen
around 10 percent a year. In 10
years the budget would be $1.5
million. There isn't enough
money in utilities to transfer to
the general fund to pay that, she
said.
The city ordinance calling for
a seven-member recreation board
is also out of compliance with
state statute, which calls for five
member boards. Of course, there

Tornadoes, Indians return to field looking to improve


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
I'clegrajph Sta." Writer
A ne\\ high school football
season is officially under way
with the start of practice on
Aug. 10. For Bradford and
Keystone Heights players, the
start of practice also marked a
new beginning as they look to
put the 2008 season behind
them.
Bradford and Keystone each
went 3-7 last year. It was
Bradford's first losing season
since 2002 and Keystone's
first since 2003.
"It was really tough, but it
was a big learning
experience." Bradford senior
Ryan DeSue said. "We learned
a lot about ourselves, really.
We learned what it means to
be tenacious, what it means to
stick together and what it
means to be part of a
brotherhood."
Having said that, though,
DeSue said he and his
teammates cannot dwell on last
year.
"The best thing for us to do
is to say forget about it and
move forward," he said. "It's a
new era."
Chase Chambers, a senior
Keystone player, said last year
\was a learning experience as
well for he and his teammates.
It certainly provided a source
of motivation as the Indians
get ready for this season.
"1 think every single one of
us has stepped up our summer
workouts," Chambers said.
"We're working out way more
and way harder. , We're
definitely coming 'in here as
one of the strongest teams I've
ever been on."
Keystone head coach Chuck


Rodney Mosley carries
the ball as the Tornadoes
run plays during the first
day of practice.
Dickinson has seen that effort
and dedication. He said
approximately 28 of the 32 or
33 players made their required
number of summer sessions in
the weight room. Also, during
a mile run the first day of
practice, only one player at
each position did not finish in
the established time set for his
respective position.
"The kids have done some
running over the summer and
have done a good job in the
weight room getting

themselves in shape,"
Dickinson said. "Hopefully,
we're ahead of the game
there."
Keystone senior lineman
Jorathan Stanley is looking
forward to this season. He has
seen the hard work put in by
his teammates and the
excitement they have in
regards to improving upon last
year.
"What happened last year
isn't going to happen this
year," Stanley said.
DeSue said was pleased with
what he saw out of his
teammates in regards to their
summer workouts. He
especially singled out the
effort- put forth by the
underclassmen, who were
always iin the weight room.
For Bradford senior lineman
Steven Yeauger, the attitude
and work of his teammates
gives him reason to be
optimistic.
"Things are getting better,"
Yeauger said. "We're getting
better in the weight room.
We're getting stronger to

That, though, was far from
the truth.
"I had an experience that

That . is why Moore
encourages other pastors in the
area to attend the event. He
does understand, however, that
their responsibilities lie with
their own churches, first and
foremost. Therefore, he
recommends that wives of area
pastors attend, so they can then
share what they learned with

should be some type of job for
every member, whether it's
greeting church visitors at
every service, driving visitors
between the church and the
parking lot in golf carts or
supplying the refreshments
that will be served between the
services and DVD simulcasts.
Moore said .this event will
create a lot of opportunities for
those members who maybe


have not done much or been in
the forefront of church events
in the past. Vaughan agreed.
"There will be a job for
everyone," Vaughan said. "It
does take a team effort to pull
this off."
When 40 Days of Purpose is
over, Moore would like to see
small-group studies continue
in people's homes under the
name "40 Days of
Community."
The event is also a.chance
for the church to gain new
members. Moore said he
would like to see 200 new
members or so as a result, but
he stressed he doesn't want the
pews filled with people who
are there for any reason other
than the fact they have
accepted Jesus Christ as their
savior and are now seeking to
serve him.
"Of course, you want
anybody here," Moore said.
"You'd never complain, but
I'm not trying to do this to fill
up my church and say, 'I have
a big church with a lot of
people.' I'm trying to do this
to reach people and reach our
community."
What Moore wants to see
are transformed lives, much
like he, had the chance to
witness when his Jacksonville
church held its 40 Days of
Purpose event. For example, a
man who worked in radio and
was a self-professed atheist
attended the services for the:

responsibility as a senior to do
everything he can to help his
team get better. Yeauger said
he felt senior leadership was
lacking at times last year.
"A team can only go so far
because of its coaches,"
Yeauger said. "It has to be
player-driven. (Head) coach
(Steve) Hoard has always said
that. That's one thing we
seniors are taking seriously
this year. We need to drive
these players to be better."
: Stanley said senior
leadership will be a key in his
team's success as well. He said
that group of players has
accepted the responsibility of
working with and motivating
the underclassmen.'
The seniors have certainly
been setting an example,
Dickinson said. All but one of
the 13 made their required
number of summer workouts.
"They've shown good
leadership," Dickinson said.
Yeauger said the very words
any head coach wants to hear:
"It's a-responsibifity4-fe all of-
us .eniors. You don't 'wan to
gd out your senior season 0-10
or even 5-5. You want to make
a legacy where we're a


.winning team."
As players become more
acclimated to the grind of
practice, Dickinson said what
he wants to see most from his
players during these early days
is a willingness to learn and do
the things coaches ask them to
do.
"That's the big thing,"
Dickinson said. "This group
here, they listen well and do
what you ask them to do.
They're a pretty coachable
group of kids."
Hoard said these first few
days of practice for his team
are all about learning
fundamentals. DeSue said that
is an area where the Tornadoes
definitely need to improve. He
said failure to execute properly
cost Bradford some wins last
year.
"At the end of game's, if our
fundamentals never broke
down, we're probably looking
at a 6-4, 7-3 season," DeSue
said.
Even those inexperienced
players who are still learning
the finer points of playing their
respective positions have a bit
of game-type experience after
the Tornadoes participated in a
Fellowship of Christian

against other schools.
"You were lining up and
scrimmaging all day long,
which was good," Hoard said,
"but some of them were doing
it on heart and desire without a
lot of technique and
fundamentals."
Hoard believes participating
in the camp puts the Tornadoes
ahead of some programs at this
point in the season. If nothing
else, it provided a bonding
experience.
"We all got to know each
other better," Yeauger said.
One thing the camp
experience did was show the
Bradford players what can be
accomplished with hard work,
Hoard said. The Tornadoes
were able to defeat larger
schools the "first day of the
camp, but then turned around
and lost to those same teams
the next day when they didn't
put forth the same effort they
did the first day.
"They didn't play hard every
day," Hoard said, "but when
they played hard, we beat
some 6A schools."
Hoard admitted his team did
not match up very well with a
lot of the bigger schools at the
camp, but the Tornadoes held


their own and came away with
wins over those schools.
DeSue said that experience
will be beneficial this year.
Bradford still has a tough
schedule, he said, but it will
seem easier compared to the
competition at the camp,
which had the Tornadoes
scrimmaging against eight
teams each day.
"We faced some big schools
and took a lot of hitting,"
DeSue said, "but we showed
we won't back down from
anybody. After the game, one
school asked what size we
were. They were thinking we
were 6A or something. We
told them 2B. They were pretty
surprised they just got handled
by a 2B team."
As for this year's schedule,
which is. composed of new
district teams, DeSue said he
did not focus too much on that.
He and his teammates are
taking the season one game at
a time. One game, though, that
both DeSue and Yeauger are
looking forward to occurs right
off the bat when the Tornadoes
host Keystone Heights to open
the season on Sept. 4. The
Tornadoes lost a tough 14-13
game against the Indians last

year. A blocked extra point
prevented Bradford from tying
the game.
It's certainly not an easy
way to start the year. Keystone
has won four of the last five
meetings.
"It's really exciting,"
Yeauger said. "You've got to
have your 'A' game going that
first game. You can't slack off
even a little bit. Keystone will
bring it to you."'
Keystone's Chambers thinks
it's "awesome" that his team
opens the season against their
neighbor rival, but another
game he's looking forward to
is against new district
opponent Trinity Catholic
since the Celtics are
considered the "powerhouse"
of the district, he said. Trinity,
which will visit Keystone Oct.
9, was the state runner-up last
year. The Celtics won a state
championship in 2005, while


also finishing as a runner-up in
2006.
"We're all curious to see
how we compare to Trinity
Catholic," Chambers said.
"We'll go out there and give
them our best shot no matter
what and see what happens."
As for Stanley, he is eagerly
looking forward to the last
game on the schedule.
"The one I'm looking
forward to is our (Nov. 13)
homecoming against
Interlachen," Stanley said. "It
will be my last game at the
high school."
That's barring a trip to the
playoffs and the possibility of
hosting another game. The
Indians last earned postseason
berths in 2005 and 2006. A
return trip to the regional
playoffs would certainly make
for a special senior season.
"I hope we can (return),"
Stanley said.

Open air
services needed
Dear Editor:
Pastor Zefnia Durham is
greatly missed from this
community. He passed away a
few weeks ago.
Some years past, he and his
wife went with my sister and
me before the city commission
to clear the way for "open air
.services."
He and other participating
ministers gave hope to our
community by preaching the
gospel of Jesus Christ from
time to time and street to
street. Witnessing was also
done by other participants.
We are trying to get started
again with open air services in
our community. The gospel of
Jesus Christ is needed and
those who hear and receive it
may claim the promises of
Jesus Christ.
Lord, please send more of
your Holy Spirit upon us and
more wisdom from on high.
Amen.
Maurice J. White

Pray for better
days for all
Dear Editor:
One would think, with our
nation in the shape it's in,
food prices soaring, price of
gas sky high, health insurance,
a big issue and two wars going
on, that the president of the
United States has more to
attend to than giving a beer
party to quell his "stupidity"
foot-in-his-mouth remark. To
me, his remark showed pure
racism.
During -.campaigning, he
talked strongly about harmony
between races. His "stupidity"
remark probably caused more
backlash that the white
policeman did doing the job
that he is paid to do.
I can't help but wonder if it
had been a white scholar and a
black policeman, would the
beer party have been held?
On other issues that's going
on, I feel the same way a writer
in -th Gainesviile Sun feels.
He 7.said; .. the-. Obama -
administration is scheming to
turn our country into a Marxist
state. He said the
administration continues on
their quest to first destroy our
economy and then, with
vengeance, our personal
freedoms, liberties, and finally
our nation. To be honest,
these times would make
"Hoover Days" seem like the
Fourth of July party.
I'm not trying to be smarter
than any other person, but I.
visualized these kind of things
happening before the election.
It may be that God is trying to
show us something. Pray hard
times will soon pass and our
country gets back to it's old
self. God bless America.

Dental hygiene
is important
Dear Editor:
As everyone continues to
struggle with the present
economy and its effect on
household budgets, dentists
throughout the nation have
seen a noticeable drop off in
the number of patients making
or keeping their appointments
with their dental hygienists.


While understandable, this
cost-cutting effort can become
futile as it leads to larger
expenses and problems later.
As dentists committed to
prevention, we believe that the
process that enables dentists to
detect gum disease in the
earliest stages, leads to
conservative -therapy that can
be performed before the disease
and infection are allowed to
progress. What most of the.
public calls dental cleaningg"
are really "prophylaxis"
preventive measures to protect
the patient from the start or
progression of the disease
process.
It is important that the
public knows that it is no
longer just about teeth
anymore. There is strong.
evidence indicating that toxins
and bacteria released by the
gum cells can get into the
bloodstream daily. These
toxins and bacteria go
anywhere the blood flows.
This leads to an increased risk
for more serious health
problems.
Mouth bacteria can attach to
platelets causing : heart-
stopping clots to form.
Keeping your gums healthy
can reduce your risk for a heart
attack. Further, studies have
shown that those with long-
standing gum disease are'more
likely to have strokes.
Periodontal or gum disease
can make it more difficult for
people with diabetes to control
their blood sugar. The disease
can increase periods of time
when the body functions with
a high blood sugar level,
increasing risk for diabetic
complications.
For women who are
pregnant or considering having
children, those with gum
disease are seven to eight
times more likely to give birth
prematurely to low birth'
weight babies, due to the
release of inflammatory
chemicals.
So, is it worth the risks to
put off those hygiene
appointments? You decide. If

Reader
questions
county's
decision
on asphalt
Dear Editor:
I am writing in response to
the article titled "County
reverses direction on low-
costing paving" that was
recently published in the
Telegraph. While I understand
the Bradford County
Commission had a difficult
decision to make regarding
which product to use for the
repaving of three county roads
during these tough economic
times, I do not understand why
concrete was not taken into
consideration for the job.
During the board's
discussion, Chairman Thomas
stated that "he was looking out
for taxpayers' best interests,
making sure they got the best
product for their money."
However, I do not believe the
best product was chosen in
favor of our taxpayers in the
end.
By selecting asphalt, the
board will inevitably find itself
in a similar situation in the
near future, as they will have
to look at repaving the roads in
three to five years-the lifespan
of asphalt. If the board had
chosen concrete, our taxpayers
would have received the best
return on investment, as
concrete, roads are built with
locally produced materials and
have a lifespan of more than
50 years with limited repair-
making them the most
economical choice in the long
run.
I agree with Commissioner
Sellars, "the board needs to do
better homework on these
matters in the future." Building
our roads out of concrete
would have been the best
choice for Bradford County
and6ur loQtAotaxpayers.

department
Dear Editor:
Homeowners in the
Providence area have had the
burden of no fice or rescue
services located in our district
..long enough. I feel..it is long
past due and I'm hoping by
writing this.letter that it will
encourage homeowners in
District 4 to have a voice in
this matter.
In the past few weeks, I have
made many calls to insurance
companies, the fire department
chief and county
commissioners. :What 1 have
found out is that an ISO rating
is given to every county. Each
district gets a rating score of
one to 10, with 10 being the
worst. District 4, the
Providence community, scored
a 10, due to not having a fire
and rescue department in our
district.
I think it is time for our
county commissioners to start
taking a closer look into the
welfare of the homeowners in
the Providence area. At
present, if someone has an
emergency in Providence, help
has to come from another
district located more than 10
miles away to protect our
citizens. It would be good to
know that if someone in your
family has an emergency, the
fire department is close, only
right down the road.
In addition, with a fire and
rescue service station in
District 4, insurance discounts
and benefits will also come to
homeowners.
District 4 needs to have the
same recognition as all other
districts in Union County.
County commissioners, we
need your consideration and
would appreciate your help for
the Providence community. 1
would like to urge that you
show us some progress toward
this project. With the tax
millage rate of 10 (the highest
possible rate in the state of
Florida), there should be no
problem in helping District 4.
After all, this is what we pay
our taxes for.

Dora Hixson


KH woman
celebrates her
91St year
Dora Lea Hixson celebrated
her 91" birthday last
Wednesday with friends and
family.
Hixson was born on Aug.
12, 1918, in Richlands, Va.,
but moved to Detroit during
World War II. There she met
her first husband, and became
one of many legendary women
called "Rosy the Riverter."
Specially, she riveted bolts
into airplane wings. One of her
life's proudest moments was
that one pilot sent a letter to
her company saying his plane
was in a power dive and he
hoped the. riveters had done
their job well enough to keep
the wings from coming off his'
aircraft. Hixson and others had
done the job and well and he
thanked them for saving his
life.
Hixson moved into the
Keystone Heights area w illi"
her late husband, Jaiiie-
Hixson, in theareyfr17990s. Shie
now resides in Keystone
Heights.
She has two sons, Bob
White from Dearborn Heights,
Mich., and Timothy Hixson,
from Orange Park.
She is active in programs at
Hope Baptist Church in
Theressa.

Bradford grad Riddick joins __ i


Flagler softball program ' " -


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Ti'lgriaph Staff If riit'r
She established herself ;as
one of the top strikeout
pitchers in the nation among
junior college programs. Now,
2007 Bradford High School
graduate Kelly Riddick will
klok to do the same at the
Division II level as a member
of the Flagler College
program.
"I just thank God for it,"
Riddick said of the opportunity
.to continue her playing career.
"Without him, I wouldn't even
be here."
Riddick, who played two
ears for Central Florida
Community College, recorded
262 strikeouts in 196 innings
this past season, which
averaged to 1.334 strikeouts
per inning. That was tops
among Florida schools and
fifth best in the nation.
She finished her Central
Florida career with 425
strikeouts, which fell 12 shy of
the school record set in 2001.
Riddick helped lead the
Patriots to the state tournament
for the first time since 2006
this past season with a 19-9
record and an ERA of 1.462.
Central Florida defeated the
nation's second-ranked team,
Indian River, 4-3 to open play
in the FCCAA Atlantic
District/NJCAA Region 8

Bradford High School
graduate Kelly Riddick,
after playing for Central
Florida Community
College, will join the
Flagler College softball
team.
Softball Tpurnament. Riddick
allowed twp:hits and struck out
nine to earn that win.
Riddick was named FCCAA
Pitcher of the Week twice this
year as she helped Central


Florida compile its first
winning record (33-23) since
2001. She was a first-team
Mid-Florida Conference
selection and a second-team
AII-FCCAA pick. Riddick was
voted her team's MVP and
received the school's Female
Athlete of the Year award.
They are impressive
accomplishments for a player
who admitted she was not sure
if slihe wanted to continue
playing the sport. Riddick said
she thought maybe it was time
to explore other avenues in
life, but after much prayer, she
stuck with the sport.
"I didn't want to give it up,"
she said.-
Riddick received offers from
eight schools, including
Division I programs Mercer
University in Macon, Ga., and
Florida Gulf Coast University
in Fort Meyers. The offer from
Mercer came despite the fact
coaches had not seen Riddick
play. The offer was based upon
stats and the recommendation
of Central Florida coach Kerri
Ryskamp, who also attended
Mercer. Therefore, Riddick
admitted she was not sure she
was a Division 1-caliber
player.
She said she knew she could
play at the Division I level,
though, after Florida Gulf
Coast coaches watched

hour chasing Frederick L.

the tires of the vehicle and
bring the chase to an end on

driving the Jeep and was-
arrested. He was charged with
fleeing and attempting to elude
a police officer, aggravated

Mighty Mites practice the bear crawl on their first day of practice. The first Jamboree
games are Aug. 29



KH Pop Warner ready to kick off


BY JAMES WILLIAMS
Monitor Editor

On a hot and muggy Saturday
\\ o \ ecks ago. the Lake Region
Pop Warner cheerleaders and
football players began their
season.
This year, the program has
added a Tiny Mites team, to
its traditional lineup of Mighty
Mites. Junior Pee Wees, and
Pee Wees. The program still
needs kids, especially older
kids. to come out and sign up.
This year, staffer Terry
Stanley is organizing the Lake
Region Pop Warner Brax Spirit
Cups fundraising program. The
Pop Warner staff and players
\\ill be passing out order forms
and will have samples for
people to view at the start of
the season.
Cheerleading coach Amy
Wells said she is still looking
for girls, ages five to 15 to join
the cheerleader squads, but the
girls who were there made up
for the missing teammates and
didn't let the heat,.stop them..
Call (352) 235-2158 for further
cheerleading information.
"Get that ball. Stop 'em,
stop'em. stop 'em," one eager
coach called out down the field
as the players scrambled.
JaSon Parmeter is head coach
of the Tiny Mites (5-6), who
are playing as a team for the
first time this year.
Parmeter has the credentials...
He played for Bradford High
School and later for an Alabama


team. He was an assistant coach
last year, and like all the other
coaches, he attended the Pop
Warner coaching clinic in July.
Asked if the Tiny Mites
were anything like his college
teams, Parmeter said, "There
is some resemblance, but you
have to bring it down to a more
simplistic level. I love it," he
said. It may help that his son is
a Tiny Mite and his daughter is


a cheerleader.
"The Mighty Mites (7 to 9)
are looking pretty good this
year," said Matt Barber. He is
on the coaching team with Bill
Hopkins and Aaron Wells.
Everyone, Tiny Mites,
Mighty Mites, football players
and cheerleaders alike are
gearing up for their Jamboree
game day at Little Rain Lake
Park on Aug. 29.

RIDDICK
Continued from page 6B
Riddick play in this past
season's state tournament
before making their offer.
Still, Riddick did not want
the opportunity to play at the
Division I level to be her sole
reason for choosing Mercer.
That's why when she narrowed
her choices to two schools,
Flagler was there, offering her
the chance to be close to home
and part of a program that is
entering just its second year of
competition.


"It's just something I prayed
about and my parents prayed
about," Riddick said.
A week after the state
tournament, Riddick had not
heard anything else from
Mercer concerning its offer,
though she called the school
and left a message. Flagler
coach Kristen Overton, who
had stayed in touch with
Riddick, said. she needed to
know soon whether Riddick
would accept her offer.
Riddick had still heard nothing
from Mercer after letting a
couple of days pass, so she
took that as a sign from God
and signed with Flagler.
Now, Riddick looks forward

to being part of a program
trying to establish itself.
"I hope I can really
contribute to the program," she
said.
Riddick said she has
probably been working as hard
as she ever has this summer in
preparation for the upcoming
season. Her goal is to be the
number-one pitcher for
Flagler.
"I'm pushing myself as
much as I can to get better and
to help the team out," Riddick
said.
Prior to going to Central
Florida, Riddick earned third-
team Class 4A all-state honors
and first-team Class 4A-6A
Gainesville Sun all-area
honors as a senior at Bradford
High School-her first full
season as a starter. She posted
a 19-10 record that year with
an ERA of 1.17 and 231
strikeouts in 192 innings.
Riddick has averaged 219
striketous per season the last
three seasons.
